It's been an exciting week for staff photographers at the Tulsa World. In addition to the portraits of Creek County wildfire victims
by Mike Simons, we took interesting pictures of kids getting back to school, a Kiss concert, a rally outside Narconon Arrowhead, Jesse Jackson's visit to Tulsa and people applying for deferred action.
Here are some pictures from those events and from other local news stories in the last week.
Remember to look for Tulsa World Photo & Multimedia on facebook.
