So just how did that happen?

A western Oklahoma woman made the wrong choices recently and got herself deeper and deeper in trouble. In the end, she was outdone by  … well, you just need to see for yourself.

The story, as reported in the Elk City Daily News (http://www.ecdailynews.com/), was that a local police officer was called to a store to investigate an attempted shoplifting.

He was told that a woman had tried to steal a hefty amount of merchandise but had fled when approached about the incident.

Then, there was another call, this time about a report that a man staying at a local motel had seen a woman drive off in his company truck.

The woman headed out onto Interstate 40. But with a head start on authorities, what she hadn’t counted on was who — or what — would  get her caught.

Check out the story and read what brought the incident to an end.

Father of Christopher Lane writes letter to Duncan groups, residents

When they may have needed it most, Duncan and its residents received a letter from the father of the young Australian man who was killed while jogging on the streets of the southern Oklahoma city.

And in that letter, published in the Duncan Banner (http://tinyurl.com/kc77gbf), Peter Lane has much to say about his son, his life and those who were so important to him in Oklahoma. The letter has many healing words, written in love and friendship.

Such as …

“The people of Duncan need to understand that we know they are a fine community that holds dear the values that Chris was taught to embrace – family, education and career and in these tough times I would ask that they continue to embrace those values as the cornerstones of their community. ”

A heartwarming, lifting letter to those in a community still stunned by the senseless killing of the East Central University baseball player.
