Nov. 7th Benefit For Jacob Brady
My name is Kimberly Swift. My son's name is Jacob Brady. Jacob was born with a deadly disease called Biliary Atresia, it is a Liver Disease that only effects 1 in every 10,000-15,000 births a year. Jacob had his first surgery at 1 1/2 months of age, the name of the surgery is the "Kasi Procedure" which basically means, that the intestine is connected directly to the liver. The "Kasi" is not a cure, I was told in order for my son to have a chance to live more long-term he would need a Liver Transplant. After many years of waiting to be "sick enough" he was finally put on the waiting list for an organ. Jacob received a life saving liver transplant at the age of 6, he is 15 now. Jacob has been in and out of the hospital a good part of his life, most recently due to his liver going into rejection. The type of rejection he has been diagnosed with is extremely rare, Donor specific antibody rejection. The docs say that he will ultimately need another organ to survive, but do not think he will be a good candidate simply because his body will do the same thing to the new organ as it is doing now. Despite all of the obstacles my son has endured throughout his life, he has always persevered. Jacob is an athlete. He started playing baseball at the age of 4, and continued to play competitively for several years. Jacob has played football on and off throughout the years as well. He is currently playing football for Collinsville High School. Several folks from our little town are throwing a benefit for him on November 7th from 11am-7pm at the Discovery Bible Fellowship Church in Collinsville Oklahoma. The benefit is to help offset the traveling, living, transplant related expenses. We would like to gather items to be able to create baskets of goodies/ gift certificates, and larger items to auction/and or raffle off...I know that you are very busy, any help would be so appreciated. Thank you and God bless you. -- 10/26/2015

Commissioner Doak Requires Insurers to
Clarify Earthquake Coverage

OKLAHOMA CITY – Oklahoma Insurance Commissioner John D. Doak today asked property and casualty insurers to send each policyholder a clarifying notice of earthquake coverage. The requirement is in response to a growing number of questions about earthquake insurance.

“Insurance is complicated,” said Doak. “We know that most people don’t read their policies. Even if they do, the language can be tough to understand. I issued this bulletin so that, hopefully, Oklahoma consumers get a better idea of exactly what kind of coverage they have for earthquakes. The goal here is consumer education and protection."

Historically, earthquake insurance has excluded earth movement resulting from human activities such as mining, explosives and oil and gas exploration. The Oklahoma Geological Survey has determined that the majority of the quakes experienced in Oklahoma are more than likely the result of wastewater injection into disposal wells.

Companies writing earthquake insurance in Oklahoma have reacted to the flurry of earthquakes in various ways. Some have amended their policy forms to cover damage resulting from wastewater injection. Others have simply been waiving the man-made exclusion. A third group still excludes quakes induced by wastewater injection.

Insurers providing earthquake coverage have 45 days to issue a clarifying notice to policyholders and licensed insurance agents. The notice must contain the following:


Subject to all policy provisions, the coverage provided by this policy (IS) or (IS NOT) intended to cover earthquake damage resulting from:

A. extracting oil or gas from below the earth's surface by any process, including but not limited to hydraulic fracturing or drilling; or

B. injecting or inserting any substance, including but not limited to, water and wastewater, below the earth's surface for any purpose; or

C. storage of any substance, including but not limited to, water and wastewater below the earth's surface for any purpose; or

D. any combination of a. - c. above.
