Health officials are investigating tuber Oklahoma City
OKLAHOMA COUNTY — Health officials have confirmed that they are investigating active tuberculosis cases in Oklahoma County.
Oklahoma City-County Health Department officials say that they are investigating an active case of tuberculosis in a student in the Western Heights Public School District. They said the student is not in the main student body of the school but attends a small program in the district.
"The administration and staff of the Western Heights School District have taken all necessary precautions to protect their students and staff," said Dr. Dale Claflin, TB Medical Director of OCCHD in the news release. "As the student is not in the main student body of the school, we are confident that only a few students will be affected. OCCHD will continue to update the district as our investigation continues."
According to the news release, the student program is separated from the rest of the Western Heights population. A small number of students and staff members have been informed that they will need to be examined.
"OCCHD officials have initiated an investigation, including the provision of TB testing of household contacts and other close contacts to the student," the news release states.

Some of the things that Steve Buck said recently about his agency's budget request for next year should be noted by the lawmakers as they consider their appropriations to the Juvenile Affairs Office.
Buck, the Executive Director of OJA, is seeking a 7.6 percent increase in state funding or an additional $7.35 million. Of this total, $1.6 million would go to prison providers, and $359,000 would be used to rebuild a research and data analytics unit that was eliminated several years ago.
The former is needed, Buck said, because providers are "struggling to serve young people who are experiencing very acute mental illness and very high levels of developmental disability."
This isn't supposed to arrive as a shock. High levels of mental illness in Oklahoma have been a long-standing problem. In a recent study, the Oklahoma Policy Institute observed that, according to national research, 92.5 percent of juveniles arrested experienced trauma, and two out of three recorded diagnosable mental health circumstances. Oklahoma has the largest frequency of kids with at least one adverse childhood experience, according to OK Policy.
Buck also said that having solid data is a must for OJA to ' identify hot spots for a specific investment, but then also develop strategies for those hot spots on how we can do things differently. It's a way to help us make use of our time, effort, and energy.

ESPN went out with its weekly roster of the best 100 teams in the NBA, and the Thunder had four participants on the roster. Interestingly enough, the three of the four players who made the cut are brand new to the team.
After having one of the worst years of his career in the 2017-18 NBA season, Danilo Gallinari turned it around in the 2018-19 season, averaging a career point high per game at 19.8.

Laird Veatch is talking from his new office about the painful process of passing through, realizing that he wanted something, and then not getting it.
He's talking about the Kansas State Athletic Director's job he's been trying to get two years before he officially became the University of Memphis Athletic Director this week, a job at his alma mater in his hometown that eventually went to someone else.
He's talking about how he was forced to question why he was doing what he was doing, what he was actually trying to do, and how he was going to do it.
He's talking about how he was convinced he needed to be an athletic director, that he wouldn't be satisfied until he became one, even if that meant leaving the place he knew best (Manhattan, Kansas) to go to a place he hardly knew (Gainesville, Florida).
He's talking about it because "I'm certain it led to this," Veatch said Tuesday afternoon in an interview with The Commercial Appeal.
It's too soon to tell the exact feeling that Veatch is going to make on Memphis athletics.
But the path he's taken to get here, a journey that seemed largely unimpeded until the moment it wasn't, indicates that he can relate to what this university has gone through in the last round of meeting realignment, and what it ultimately intends to become.
Memphis Made Brewing Co. will open a second location in the Ravine district of Edge, a move that will enable the brewery to boost its capacity and give more beers.
The company set up its first production facility — now a brewery and taproom — in 2013 in Cooper-Young. Memphis Made now has beers in more than 300 bars, restaurants, and distributors all over Shelby County.
"If you had asked me about a second location six years ago, I would have looked at you like you had six arms," said Drew Barton, co-founder of Memphis Made. "Opening day can't come soon enough. This location will enable us to develop and provide a wider range of fans."
The brewery recently signed a lease agreement with PGK Properties, a company developing a Wonder Bread Factory project, a series of office spaces, apartments, and retail outlets in the area.
"They will prove to be a key player in creating a vibrant, prosperous, mixed-use neighborhood," said Ethan Knight, vice president of development for the Development Services Group, developer of PGK. We've been concentrated on cultivating a genuine Live-Work-Play society within the Edge, and Memphis Made is a top-tier asset to welcome to the blend.
MEMPHIS, Tenn.-The young pastor of Memphis is accused of swindling more than a dozen people into believing that he was running a new church with a big name on it.
The Greater Victory Church of Memphis began and closed in a matter of weeks, and former staff members told that the church at first seemed legitimate.
Senior Pastor Jaycolby Robinson said that it was a plant church under the Bellevue Baptist Church and associated with the Southern Baptist Convention. Several staff members say that after being hired, Robinson also gave the majority of people letters with salaries and start-up days.
But after a few services, members say they realized these positions and the church wasn't real. A new church for millennials with a service beginning at 1 p.m. Regina Osei said that's how 22-year-old Pastor Jaycolby Robinson defined Memphis ' Greater Victory Church.
"He said it was a church plant through the Bellevue Baptist and Southern Baptist Conventions," Osei said.
After submitting for an online and informal interview process, Osei was hired as an associate pastor of the new church. When she joined the team, she said that Robinson told her that there was a delay in funding and that nobody would be paid until October.
