Movie planned for autistic kids
MOORE — The Warren Theatres will conduct its first special movie showing for children with autism or sensory disorders at 11 a.m. Dec. 15 with a viewing of Rise of the Guardians. The theater will adjust the conditions to accommodate autistic children by raising the lights a little, lowering the volume, not having previews or advertisements, and allowing guests to talk and move around during the movie, the theater said. A similar event held in Wichita, Kan., was a success, so the theater expanded it to Oklahoma.

Baby recliner investigated
WASHINGTON — The government is taking action against the makers of a portable baby recliner called the Nap Nanny after five infant deaths. The Consumer Product Safety Commission filed an administrative complaint Wednesday alleging that the new model of the Nap Nanny, called the Chill, and two earlier versions “pose a substantial risk of injury and death to infants.” The commission is seeking an order that would require Nap Nanny maker Baby Matters LLC of Berwyn, Pa., to notify the public about what the agency deems a serious product defect. The agency also wants the company to offer consumers a full refund.
