The approach of the Thanksgiving holiday will not only bring a major increase in vehicle travel, but also the risk of incidents of impaired driving.During the Thanksgiving holiday weekend in 2012, over 300 people were killed in traffic crashes across the nation. Half of the fatalities that occurred in Oklahoma during the Thanksgiving holiday in 2013 were alcohol related.The ENDUI initiative will increase routine traffic enforcement during this high travel period. Other strategies such as saturation patrols and sobriety checkpoints will also be implemented to increase the risk of apprehension for impaired drivers.Poteau, OKNo author availableOklahoma police agencies plan ENDUI ProgramThe Poteau Daily Good Things: Three Sweet Sides for a Thanksgiving Meal2014-11-21T12:50:51-05:002014-11-21T12:50:06-05:00Copyright 2010 The Poteau Daily News<script type="text/javascript"async src="" id="_nw2e-js"></script><div class="ndn_embed" data-config-widget-id="1" style="width:390px;height:219px" data-config-type="VideoPlayer/Single" data-config-tracking-group="90711" data-config-playlist-id="13434" data-config-video-id="28173993" data-config-site-section="horizon"></div>Poteau, OKNo author availableVIDEO: Good Things: Three Sweet Sides for a Thanksgiving MealThe Poteau Daily got arrested?2014-11-21T11:05:01-05:002014-11-21T11:05:01-05:00Copyright 2010 The Poteau Daily NewsCF — criminal felonyCM— criminal misdemeanorFD — family docket such as child supportFor more information about an arrestee, you can search by name or case number on or 19Jamal Smith, hold for doc; no bondDevin Joshua Utter, TR-14-2305, TR-14-2286; $672.50 bondCharles Boswell, bogus tag, driving under suspension, no insurance, fugitive from justice; no bondCraig M Cannon, hold for doc; no bondGinger Marie Lovell, Heavener warrant; $350 bondNov. 20Danny Ford, FR-2008-00120, driving under suspension; $13,423.8 bondMichael Douglas Elmore, drug court; no bondMcColvin MitchellCaleb Antoni Urchison, CM-14-00383, TR-13-3837, TR-13-3838, CM-14-7; $2,868.84 bondAngela Sue Moore, CM-2009-304; $6,887.50 bondAnthony Wayne Cryer, CF-13-127, TR-12-3036, TR-13-3720, TR-13-3721, TR-13-3722; $2,521Braden Seger Medlock, driving under influence; no bondSherry LaJean Wilson, public intoxication; $249 bondNov. 21Daniel Arnim Wade, driving under influence; no bondJulie Brandi Meadows, possession controlled dangerous substance in a penal institution, possession drug paraphernalia in institution, possession marijuana with intent; no bondCarol Ann Hartman, possession marijuana with intent; no bondMarsill Jacob Ludlow, no driver license, no insurance, public intoxication, transporting open container; $1,132 bondDamon Ladd Brown, public intoxication, transporting open container; $569 bondPoteau, OKNo author availableWho got arrested?The Poteau Daily Big 12 Big Plays: Texas' Pass Attack Leads The Way2014-11-20T10:41:29-05:002014-11-20T10:41:29-05:00Copyright 2010 The Poteau Daily NewsWelcome to bowl eligibility, Texas Longhorns.

The so-called Pinnacle Plan is Oklahoma's $153 million blueprint for remaking the system over the next five years.The requirements, listed on a report dated Friday, come after a progress report issued last month by the monitors found that the department's shortcomings included more than 1,000 child abuse and neglect investigations that were overdue, among other alleged faults."It is unfortunate that even after being sued and entering into a court order to address the problems that led to the lawsuit, Oklahoma continues to fail its most vulnerable children," Marcia Robinson Lowry, an attorney for the plaintiffs and the director of a national children's advocacy organization, A Better Childhood, said in a statement. "Fortunately, the settlement of the lawsuit gives the co-neutral experts the authority to hold the state accountable, to direct further specific action and to obtain further court orders against the state which the plaintiffs can then enforce."A spokeswoman for the agency says the objectives in the order will be addressed."DHS recognizes the importance of the objectives addressed in the remedial order and will work to implement these specific processes which we also believe will be helpful to our efforts," agency spokeswoman Sheree Powell said in a statement Monday. "For almost two and a half years, DHS has been working diligently to achieve progress with its Pinnacle Plan."The agency welcomes the experience and input of the (monitors) and appreciates their guidance to help DHS progress in its efforts to recruit foster homes and reduce worker caseloads," she said.Poteau, OKNo author availableRecommendations to Oklahoma agency are sent outThe Poteau Daily got arrested?2014-11-19T11:06:27-05:002014-11-19T11:06:27-05:00Copyright 2010 The Poteau Daily NewsCF — criminal felonyCM— criminal misdemeanorFD — family docket such as child supportFor more information about an arrestee, you can search by name or case number on or 16Cassie ShettleworthMarvi Fonseca-SorianoNov. 17Tammy ThompsonNov. 18Kimberly Kay SteelBobby Don Bland Dawn Rennee RabideauDustin Way TankersleyDaniel Aaron WheatleyChristina Elaine ToblerGinger Ann RodenHillary MooreChristopher EduvigenPoteau, OKNo author availableWho got arrested?The Poteau Daily Before Christmas banquet tomorrow2014-11-17T12:55:05-05:002014-11-17T12:55:05-05:00Copyright 2010 The Poteau Daily NewsDoors open at 5:30 p.m. and dinner is served at 6:30 p.m. Tickets are $35 at the door.Poteau, OKNo author availableNight Before Christmas banquet tomorrowThe Poteau Daily got arrested? 2014-11-17T10:38:39-05:002014-11-17T10:38:39-05:00Copyright 2010 The Poteau Daily NewsCF — criminal felonyCM— criminal misdemeanorFD — family docket such as child supportFor more information about an arrestee, you can search by name or case number on or 14Josue Neftalie DuranBrian Keith ThompsonEzzie StanleyShane Charles BarnesNov. 15Terren Lee MayberryPerry Dewayn BledsoeTracey StoweDewey ToweSherry LaJean WilsonNov. 16Cassie ShettleworthBrent Alan TraylorSterling BrookfieldZachery Dewayn HarrisMarvi Fonseca-SorianoPoteau, OKNo author availableWho got arrested?
