This is the Manager’s Minute.

KGOU’s spring fundraiser was a resounding success.

We’re still adding up the numbers, but this is already the best spring fundraiser in KGOU history.

Fourteen hundred people contributed, including more than 350 new members.

That shows significant growth.

And so does the total money raised.

Contributions are close to $200,000, an increase of more than 32 percent from Spring, 2016.

This means more and more people are making KGOU part of their lives and daily routine.

An Oklahoma judge has ruled that the Humane Society of the United States must turn over one contested document and portions of two others to the attorney general's office, but can keep 21 others secret.

The Oklahoman reports that Oklahoma County District Judge Patricia Parrish ruled that the Humane Society can withhold the documents after the organization sued state Attorney General Scott Pruitt to block their release.
