MIAMI, Okla. – Early in-person voting kicks off today for Oklahoma. For the next three days folks can avoid the election day rush by casting their ballot now. Early voting will be open at county locations both today and tomorrow from 8:00am to 6:00pm and again on Saturday from 9:00am to 2:00pm.

JOPLIN, Mo. – We’re learning more about the pandemic’s *financial* impact on local hospitals. Both Mercy and Freeman hospitals in Joplin have been affected. With the postponement of non-emergency procedures and the additional resources needed of equipment and staff, they’ve seen a drop in revenue this year compared to last. Mercy officials said in a statement, there has been more care done for those who are uninsured and often times it is not reimbursed.

PITTSBURG, Kan. – PSU will help get workers displaced by the coronavirus back on the job, thanks to a $146,000 grant from the Kansas Department of Commerce. That money will be spent on accelerated workshops and certificate programs within PSU’s “Plastics Engineering Technology Program,” and for some new state of the art equipment. The money will not only help students in the plastics program, but will also fund some focused TWO-to-FIVE day workshops that will help displaced workers receive college credit towards a plastic degree.

NEW ORLEANS, La – Zeta made landfall Wednesday in southeastern Louisiana as a strong category two hurricane before moving into southern Mississippi. At one point, the storm carried winds powerful enough to blow a trailer across a Louisiana highway. New Orleans Mayor Latoya Cantrell urged residents to let officials assess the damage… saying one person has died, electrocuted by downed power lines.
