Nine-year-old Jacob Thompson is your average kid. His obsessions include Minecraft and Legos, and he’s a huge “Star Wars” fan. He’s also a photographer, singer and comedian, according to his stepmother, Tara Artinyan. And most of all, he really, really loves penguins.
But Jacob has Stage four high-risk neuroblastoma, and doctors told his family in early October he probably only had a month to live. So they’ll celebrate Christmas early this year, and Jacob wants people to celebrate with him by sending him cards, his mother, Michelle Simard told CNN.

Jacob was diagnosed with high-risk neuroblastoma when he was five. According to the American Cancer Society, only half of children diagnosed with the disease reach the five-year survival mark. After Jacob was admitted to the Barbara Bush Children’s Hospital on October eleven, doctors discovered that the neuroblastoma had spread to his head and was incurable, according to a GoFundMe page set up by his mother. Artinyan said the family decided to “fast-forward” Christmas to give Jacob one last celebration. But before his improvised Christmas celebration takes place in early November, Jacob asked for cards from anyone around the world who wanted to share his Christmas spirit. And only five days after he announced his wish, he has already received more than one hundred cards from people all over the country — and even beyond.

The Oklahoma State Department of Health has suffered from financial mismanagement stretching back more than five years and needs an immediate infusion of thirty million dollars from the Legislature just to meet payroll for the next few months, the agency’s new director warned on Monday. Governor Mary Fallin’s top finance official, Preston Doerflinger, delivered the grim financial picture while flanked by workers at the Cleveland County Health Department in Norman. He says  health department officials for years improperly juggled money between agency accounts and expanded the agency’s mission and operations beyond its funding levels. He said agency officials borrowed money across funds, kept accounting periods open for multiple years and improperly spent money on new programs that should have been used to restore previous expenditures.
….
State Auditor and Inspector Gary Jones said Monday two certified public accountants, a director overseeing the investigation and several other employees are working on the audit. Both Jones and Doerflinger said it’s too early to determine if any of the financial mismanagement was criminal in nature, but Attorney General Mike Hunter has asked Jones to conduct an investigative audit that could lead to criminal charges.
….
Almost one thousand  five hundred agency employees are being furloughed without pay one day for each two-week pay period to reduce expenses.
