Water rights appeal denied

Oklahoma City (AP) _ A federal appeals court has denied a request by a north Texas water district to reconsider a lawsuit that seeks access to water flowing into the Red River from southeastern Oklahoma for use in the Fort Worth and Arlington areas.

The 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals on Friday rejected the Tarrant Regional Water District's petition for a rehearing. The appeals court last month affirmed a lower court decision dismissing the 2007 lawsuit, which alleged that Oklahoma statutes governing surface and stream water rights within its borders posed burdens to interstate commerce.

The district wanted to purchase about 150 billion gallons from the Red River's Oklahoma tributaries to ensure a future water supply for the area. A spokesman for the district didn't immediately return a call or email seeking comment.

    Fort Sill shows their appreciation by serving soldiers a Thanksgiving feast

    Fort Sill soldiers had quite the Thanksgiving feast today. It was all served by the commanding general and other post leaders. On the menu were prime rib, turkey, ham, and all the Thanksgiving fixings along with shrimp gumbo. It took a couple of weeks to prepare the food. The decorations took a little longer after settling on a Disney theme. We spoke with Wilson Shoffner, the commanding general at Fort Sill, about why it was the leaders serving the soldiers.
