Mike Ritze said he has ordered an identical Ten Commandments monument that is currently under construction and, like the first one, will be built entirely with private funds."We can't repair the old one, so we have ordered another monument identical to the one that was torn down," said Ritze, of Broken Arrow. "The fundraising is ongoing."The 6-foot-tall granite monument was erected in 2012 on the north side of the Capitol after a bill authorizing it was passed by the GOP-controlled Legislature in 2009 and signed into law by then-Gov. Brad Henry, a Democrat.Last month, someone drove a car onto the statehouse lawn and directly into the monument, smashing it into several pieces. A 29-year-old man was arrested the next day after he showed up at a federal building in Oklahoma City and acknowledged destroying the monument, according to a police report. The man was admitted to a hospital for a mental evaluation, but formal charges have not been filed.The original monument was challenged by a Norman man who has sued to have it removed, arguing it violates the state Constitution's prohibition against the use of public property to support "any sect, church, denomination or system of religion."But an Oklahoma County judge ruled in September that the monument serves a secular — not religious — purpose and does not violate the state constitution. The American Civil Liberties Union, which filed the suit on behalf of Norman minister Bruce Prescott, has appealed to the Oklahoma Supreme Court.The monument's placement on a landing on the north side of the Capitol building has led others to seek their own on the Capitol grounds, including a satanic group that earlier this year had constructed a 7-foot-tall statue that depicts Satan as Baphomet, a goat-headed figure with horns, wings and a long beard.Similar requests for monuments have been made by a Hindu leader in Nevada, an animal rights group and the satirical Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster.___Follow Sean Murphy at www.twitter.com/apseanmurphyPoteau, OKNo author availableNew 10 Commandments monument being builtThe Poteau Daily Newsurn:publicid:dailypress.com:15619Change0Usable2014-11-24T11:41:55-05:00 urn:publicid:dailypress.com:15618VIDEO: Cowboys rally to beat Giants despite Beckham Jr.'s performance2014-11-24T11:35:16-05:002014-11-24T11:35:16-05:00Copyright 2010 The Poteau Daily News<script type="text/javascript"async src="http://launch.newsinc.com/js/embed.js" id="_nw2e-js"></script><div class="ndn_embed" data-config-widget-id="2" style="width:390px;height:219px" data-config-type="VideoPlayer/Single" data-config-tracking-group="90711" data-config-playlist-id="13434" data-config-video-id="28187662" data-config-site-section="sweetwater_hom_non_sec"></div>Poteau, OKNo author availableVIDEO: Cowboys rally to beat Giants despite Beckham Jr.'s performanceThe Poteau Daily Newsurn:publicid:dailypress.com:15618Change0Usable2014-11-24T11:35:16-05:00 urn:publicid:dailypress.com:15601Oklahoma police agencies plan ENDUI Program2014-11-21T12:53:19-05:002014-11-21T12:53:19-05:00Copyright 2010 The Poteau Daily NewsThe program kicks off Saturday and will continue through Nov. 29. 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 Newsurn:publicid:dailypress.com:15601Change0Usable2014-11-21T12:53:19-05:00 urn:publicid:dailypress.com:15600VIDEO: 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="http://launch.newsinc.com/js/embed.js" 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 Newsurn:publicid:dailypress.com:15600Change0Usable2014-11-21T12:50:06-05:00 urn:publicid:dailypress.com:15595Who 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 www.ODCR.com or www.OSCN.net.Nov. 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 Newsurn:publicid:dailypress.com:15595Change0Usable2014-11-21T11:05:01-05:00 urn:publicid:dailypress.com:15587VIDEO: 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 Newsurn:publicid:dailypress.com:15581Change0Usable2014-11-19T11:15:36-05:00 urn:publicid:dailypress.com:15580Who 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 www.ODCR.com or www.OSCN.net.Nov. 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 Newsurn:publicid:dailypress.com:15580Change0Usable2014-11-19T11:06:27-05:00
