Several Districts Head to the Polls Today on Bond Issues
Today will play a major role in the future of some schools around the area.
Several counties will hold special elections that include school bond issues.
Edmond voters will decide the fate of an 80-million dollar bond proposal. If passed, the bond will pay for the building of a new elementary school, middle school, and will purchase land for a new high school that will be built in the next 10-years.
Families in Moore will also say yes or no to more than 127-million dollars in projects. The superintendent, Susan Pierce, says the money is needed to help alleviate the pressure of adding 500-students a year. "We're the third largest district in the state only behind Oklahoma City and Tulsa. With that kind of growth we not only have to accomodate our students today but plan for the future", says Pierce.
If passed, the two bond proposals will pay for a new junior high, two new elementary schools and five additions to existing schools.

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.
