Renewing Public Radio Tulsa Member

And we love our members, who make every bit of this trusted reporting possible.
Here's what's In The Moment at Public Radio Tulsa this morning.
AROUND THE STATION
You mean the world to us. Public Radio Tulsa brings you the world. The world of politics...of science...of books...of music. And we're able to bring you the world because of your financial support. It's Fall Fund Drive time: Your chance to make a small gift with a BIG impact...one that helps ensure that trusted, fact-centered news and breathtaking classical music are available for everyone in northeast Oklahoma on Public Radio Tulsa.

And we have a world of thank-you gifts! Like a 12-month subscription to the language-learning app, Babbel, just for your affordable sustaining pledge of $15 a month! (Brush up on your Spanish! Pick up Russian!) And a special Public Radio Tulsa luggage tag that's an automatic gift for anyone making a new monthly sustaining gift.

Be an Early-Bird. Your garden will thank you. Is there a better corporate friend of any public radio station than Southwood Landscape & Garden Center? Since forever, Southwood has offered a special gift to those of you who make your fund drive donations early. And they're doing it again this fall! Just make your gift of $10 a month, or $120 or more, by midnight on Tuesday, October 5th, 2021, and in mid-October, Southwood will email you a $20 e-gift certificate good for anything in the store. ANYTHING. 

What's the big deal about Sustainers? When you become a Sustaining Member, you set up an easy, affordable monthly donation that continues until you advise otherwise. It's easy for you...just set it, and forget it! And it's best for Public Radio Tulsa, providing a reliable source of funding that we can budget on, every month. Learn more about becoming a sustainer HERE, or make YOUR sustaining pledge HERE!
THE LOCAL BEAT
Executions scheduled to resume. The Oklahoma Court of Criminal Appeals has set execution dates for seven Oklahoma death row inmates, with the first scheduled to take place October 28th. The last time a prisoner was executed in the state was 2015.

A grocery store in downtown Tulsa? For those of you following the "Why Can't We Get a Grocery Here?" saga, it appears to have taken a turn for the positive. The Performing Arts Center Trust has voted to approve a $5.5 million sale of a parking lot at Third Street and Cincinnati to a developer that plans to use the space for a mixed-use project that will include a grocery. 

Monoclonal antibody treatments available. The Muscogee Nation's new Tulsa hospital is now offering monoclonal antibody treatments for certain individuals with COVID. The outpatient infusions are available both to tribal citizens and non-Native Oklahomans who meet certain risk criteria at the Council Oak Comprehensive Health Care hospital.
KEEPING BODY & SOUL TOGETHER
Timing is everything. And it's time. If it's fall, it must be time for a flu shot. And according to NPR, it is NOT too early to line up for this stick in the arm. Here's the whole scoop.

Hail to Tulsa U! Is your alma mater our license holder, The University of Tulsa? If so, you've got a Homecoming celebration to put on your calendar! TU's Homecoming 2021 will be October 7 - 10 this fall, and will include class reunions, a bonfire on the "old U" (Dietler Commons), and the homecoming football game against Memphis. Register for events HERE!

Gardens: Not JUST for summer. In fact, the Tulsa Botanic Garden is dressed in its fall finery and ready for a party! Today is the last day to register to attend the 9th Annual D.I.G.: Day in the Garden, with music, pumpkin decorating, a scavenger hunt, and more. Register HERE!

Happy Mabon, y'all. Because yesterday was the autumnal equinox AND because in Oklahoma, we're all meteorologists at heart, here is THIS story from NPR about what this means: weather-wise, pop-culture-wise, and OMG IT'S GETTING DARK SO SOON-wise. Enjoy while sipping your PSL.

And please...stay safe, friends.
