    OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — The dog days of summer are taking a short vacation this week. Weather forecasters say a cold front headed for Oklahoma and Arkansas will bring unseasonably cool temperatures and a chance of rain through next week. High temperatures during mid-summer in Oklahoma are normally around 95 degrees with nighttime lows in the 70s. But Matthew Day, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Norman, said that highs will be closer to 80 degrees with lows in the 60s through the middle of next week. The cooler forecast is expected to give people who work outdoors a break. There will be chance of rain through much of the period as well.

    OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Gov. Mary Fallin is complaining to federal officials about the potential cost to Oklahoma from unaccompanied immigrant minors who are released from a temporary shelter at Fort Sill and placed with sponsors in the state. In a letter today to President Barack Obama, Fallin complained that Oklahoma taxpayers are being forced to subsidize the costs for education and health care for children who are placed with sponsors in Oklahoma. Fallin says her office was given no advance notice of a plan by federal officials to use the vacant barracks for U.S. Army troops to house up to 1,200 mostly teenagers from Central America who were caught trying to enter the country illegally. Fallin asked Obama to provide her with a timeline and strategy for closing the Fort Sill facility.

    SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Attorneys for the FBI have told a federal judge in Utah that the agency has found no evidence that unreleased Oklahoma City bombing videos exist. The comments came during the first day of a trial triggered by a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit by Salt Lake City lawyer Jesse Trentadue. He says the FBI won't release videos that show a second person was with Timothy McVeigh when he parked a truck outside the Oklahoma City federal building and detonated a bomb that killed 168 people. The government says McVeigh was alone. A U.S. District Judge sent the case to trial after remaining unsatisfied with the FBI's responses in the five years since the lawsuit was filed. FBI attorneys intend to call bureau employees to testify that the agency did a thorough search and how additional efforts would be burdensome and fruitless. The trial is scheduled to last three days.
