Oklahoma Grant to Help Protect Lesser Prairie Chicken
OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- A grant from the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation will help northwestern Oklahoma farmers and ranchers protect the habitat of the Lesser Prairie Chicken.
The $90,000 grant was recently awarded to the Oklahoma Association of Conservation Districts. Sarah Pope, programs director for the conservation group, says the funding will help provide new technical assistance to landowners working to protect the threatened Lesser Prairie Chicken on private land.
Pope says the money will help build programs that not only help landowners undertake work to protect wildlife habitat but also help them promote good natural resource stewardship.
Staff members hired with the grant will also monitor participation in state and federal programs designed to protect habitat. They also will further develop and implement the wildlife credit program at the state conservation organizatio

Okla. grand jury returns new charges on ex-judge
May 23, 2013 23:32 GMT
OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- Oklahoma's multicounty grand jury has returned new indictments against a former Lincoln County judge who already faces embezzlement and cattle theft charges.
The grand jury handed up the indictments Thursday against 47-year-old Craig S. Key of Chandler.
Key turned himself in last month to Lincoln County authorities who set bond at $10,000.
One indictment accuses Key of harboring a fugitive by allegedly encouraging a client facing criminal charges in Lincoln and Jefferson counties to flee the state to avoid prosecution.
Another charges Key with five counts of delivery of a forged note and accuses him of forging the name of a woman whose signature was required on escrow account checks that Key was also required to sign.
Key's attorney, Cheryl Ramsey of Stillwater, says the additional indictments are no surprise.
