Child Vaccines and the Autism Epidemic

For decades, children who developed autism after receiving routine vaccines have been denied justice. Their parents have been ridiculed, gaslighted, left to cope on their own. Kids suffered.

All because the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (NVICP) determined vaccines didn’t cause autism in three “test” claims. Those three claims determined the fate of over 5,000 children in the NVICP’s Omnibus Autism Proceeding (OAP) — and those 5,000 children represented hundreds of thousands of vaccine-injured children.

This twisted miscarriage of justice directly affected the U.S. Supreme Court decision in Bruesewitz v. Wyeth, largely shielding the pharmaceutical industry from liability for vaccine injury.

Election Board Decides Complaint

Beginning local conflict in the current election cycle, Democrat candidates for the office of Tulsa County Commissioner District 2 faced off at an administrative hearing of the Election Board Tuesday morning in a two-on-one attack.

Maria Barnes, the complainant, asserted that Jim Rea had not lived in the district for the full six months prior to filing as required by law. Sarah Gray, running for the same office also as a Democrat, was beside her helping Barnes make the case.

Rea closed on the purchase of a residence in District 2 September 29 and updated his voter registration October 1, 2023. The new home is a few blocks from his previous residence which was not in the district and Rea declared he purchased the new home specifically to run for the county office.

Don Tomkalski Retires from TU

Senior Associate Athletic Director for Communications Don Tomkalski has announced his retirement from The University of Tulsa after a 40-year career. Tomkalski’s final day will be May 31. He will be missed by many for his skill, grace, and good humor.

“I am forever grateful to The University of Tulsa for giving a young kid back in 1984 the opportunity of a lifetime,” Tomkalski said. “I never could have imagined spending 40 years at one school but have thoroughly enjoyed my time at TU. I have witnessed so many great games, fierce competitions, outstanding individual and team performances and have had a lot of laughs that will always be etched in my memory. It was also because of this job that I met my wife Gary Ann, and I thank her for the patience and understanding of the long hours and time away.

“I thank the communication staff members who have worked with me thru the years for all their hard work and dedication. It has been a pleasure to work with them as well as the many coaches, student-athletes, athletic staff, media members and the numerous campus departments. The people make the place, and Tulsa is a tremendous place.”
