    CAMARILLO, Calif. (AP) — The average price of regular gasoline nationwide has dropped another 25 cents a gallon in the past two weeks, to $2.47 a gallon. Industry analyst Trilby Lundberg said prices will likely keep falling. Lundberg says the average price of regular gasoline is the lowest it's been in more than five years. She says lower crude oil prices are driving prices down, along with an abundant oil supply and the rising value of the U.S. dollar. The highest-priced gas in the Lower 48 states was found in Long Island, New York, at $2.82 a gallon. The lowest was in Tulsa, Oklahoma, at $2.06 a gallon. The average price for midgrade gas in the U.S. is $2.71. For premium it's $2.87. Here in Enid, 10% ethanol blend unleaded is available for under $2.00 a gallon.

    OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Winter has arrived in Oklahoma, but officials say it isn't likely to bring much relief from the ongoing drought. Sunday marked the first day of winter. But the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration seasonal drought outlook says drought conditions in western Oklahoma are expected to persist or intensify between now and March 31st. The Oklahoman reports that the outlook predicted drought improvement only in a small area along the Red River in southeastern Oklahoma. The U.S. Drought Monitor says more than 60 percent of Oklahoma remains in drought. And Oklahoma state climatologist Gary McManus says it's also possible that predictions of increased precipitation won't materialize. Those predictions are based on the possibility of an El Nino weather pattern developing this winter, something forecasters say is not certain.

    SP)--Enid Public Schools is preparing to chart a course for the future and asking the community to join the effort. The district will embark on a comprehensive strategic planning process in January designed to build awareness of 21st century demands and create shared beliefs, core values and a vision for the school district. The process, Designing the Future Together, will help ensure the district continues to meet the needs of all students, preparing them for college, career and beyond.

     

    EPS is partnering with Engage Learning to facilitate the planning process. Topics are expected to include instruction, staffing, extracurricular activities, school finance, community relations, character education, facilities and more. Input will be sought from parents, students, teachers, administrators, business owners and community members. All Enid residents will have the opportunity to share ideas and offer suggestions.

     

    A survey will be available online January 22 through February 4 to allow all Enid residents another opportunity to contribute to the plan. Feedback from all meetings and the survey will then be used to provide direction to a Strategic Design Team, which will be made of 40 community members. A final plan is expected to be presented to the Board of Education next April or May. Updates to the planning process will be provided at enidpublicschools.org/designingthefuture.

    HA)--A limited amount of winter heating assistance funds will be made available across the state through the federal Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP), which is administered through the Oklahoma Department of Human Services (DHS). Applications are being accepted and will continue until all allocated funds are depleted. DHS has approximately $8 million in federal funds for this year’s Winter Heating Program in Oklahoma.

    KF)--The American Kitefliers Association (AKA) announced that its 2015 national convention will return to Enid next Fall at the Enid Event Center and Convention Hall and at the flying field behind Autry Technology Center. The dates for the 38th annual AKA National Convention are September 28-October 4, 2015. The AKA Convention is an annual gathering of kite enthusiasts, artists, and competitors. The AKA held its 2012 national convention in Enid. The national convention is rotated every three years between locations on the east coast, west coast and central United States, meaning it will be returning to Enid at its first opportunity. The 2013 AKA convention was held in Portland, OR, while the 2014 convention recently concluded at Outer Banks, NC. AKA President Mel Hickman said the hospitality the group received in Enid in 2012 was a primary factor in returning to Enid.

     

    Highlighting each afternoon of the AKA convention is the Mass Ascension, where AKA members release their kites at once, filling the skies above Autry Technology Center with magnificent color. The public will be encouraged to attend each afternoon session. More details will be announced as the convention date draws nearer.
