Part of Highway to be Named after Okla. Soldier
COLLINSVILLE, Okla. (AP) -- A ceremony to name a section of U.S. Highway 169 after an Oklahoma Army National Guardsman killed in Afghanistan will be held in Collinsville.
The event honoring Spc. Christopher D. Horton is set for Thursday morning at 11605 North 135th East Avenue.
The Oklahoma National Guard says the 26-year-old Horton was a sniper assigned to the 1st Battalion, 279th Infantry Regiment, 45th Infantry Brigade Combat Team when he was killed in Paktia Province on Sept. 9, 2011.
U.S. 169 from 106th Street North to 116th Street North will be named "Specialist Christopher D. Horton Memorial Highway." Senate Bill 1320 designates four sections of the highway to be named after fallen soldiers from the area.
Horton and 13 other Oklahoma Army National Guard members died during the 45th's deployment to Afghanistan.

Christie: Okla. tornado victims deserve aid
May 22, 2013 17:49 GMT
BELMAR, N.J. (AP) -- New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie says now is "not a time for political retribution" against the people of Oklahoma victimized by a powerful tornado.
The Republican governor on Wednesday urged lawmakers in Washington to support "swift and immediate" aid to tornado victims, even though Oklahoma's two GOP senators voted against bills sending $60 billion in federal aid to victims of Superstorm Sandy, mostly in New Jersey.
Sens. Tom Coburn and James Inhofe were among 36 senators to vote no on the aid package.
Christie says two wrongs don't make a right.
Christie spoke in Belmar at the official re-opening of the town's boardwalk. The shore town was the first Christie visited after Sandy, landing a helicopter in a sand-strewn street.
The borough's 1.3-mile boardwalk was destroyed.
