The driver of the car, whose last name was Cunningham, was not injured. A letter to the editor from Mrs. Wilcox, published in this issue of the paper, describes their experience.

Five church break-ins last weekend in Alva By Marione Martin The Alva Police Department is investigating a series of breakins at five churches during last weekend. Someone broke into the First Christian Church, First Presbyterian Church, Zion Lutheran Church, First Baptist Church and Church of the Nazarene. Assistant Police Chief Ben Orcutt responded to the first report on Saturday at 11:15 a.m. Rev. Ron Pingelton reported the break-in at the First Christian Church. Two solid wood office doors had been kicked in. The north door to the church building was unlocked and that was believed to be the entry point. A shoe print was found in the dirt and grass near the door. Pingelton said nothing was taken. The break-in occurred between 5 p.m. Friday and 10:30 a.m. Saturday. Orcutt responded to a breakin report at the First Presbyterian Church at 5:25 p.m. Saturday. Larry Glass reported the incident. He showed Orcutt that a door on the south side of the church near the offices had the glass broken out and the door unlocked. Nothing seemed to be taken although Rev. Dr. Judye Pistole found the drawers in her desk and in the secretary’s desk had been gone through. That break-in occurred between noon on Friday and 5:20 p.m. Saturday.

Apparently the police decided to check other church buildings. At 5:45 p.m. Saturday, Orcutt walked around the Zion Lutheran Church and found a back door unlocked. Because of the earlier break-in reports, he entered the building. He found the secretary’s office door open. The top drawer of a file cabinet and a desk drawer were partially open. He contacted the church pastor who met him at the office. He believed he left the desk drawer open but was unsure about the file cabinet. Nothing was missing and there was no damage. The break-in was between 5 p.m. Friday and the time of discovery on Saturday. At 5:45 p.m. Saturday Woods County Deputy Ethan McOsker called Orcutt to report he had found a back door open at the First Baptist Church. Orcutt met McOsker and a member of the church to walk through the building. Inside they found the door to the offices had been kicked in, causing damage to the door and frame. Nothing was found missing. It appeared that someone had gone through all the drawers in the office and some items were on the floor. The time of the break-in was between 2 p.m. Friday and 5:45 p.m. Saturday. At press time, the report about the Church of the Nazarene had not been completed.

Practical nursing program slated to begin this fall Northwest Technology Center announced today that it has received provisional approval from the Oklahoma Board of Nursing to begin a practical nursing program later this fall.

Obituaries BARBARA DEE GORDON Funeral services for Barbara Dee Gordon will be at 10:30 a.m. Saturday, Aug. 3, at the Alva First Baptist Church with Dr. Greg Hook officiating. Interment will be in the Alva Municipal Cemetery under the direction of Marshall Funeral Home of Alva. There will be a visitation with the family from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Friday. Barbara Dee Gordon, daughter of the late Delmar and Olive (Doughty) Goucher, was born on Jan. 23, 1930, in Alva and passed away July 29, 2013, in Tulsa at the age of 83 years 6 months and 6 days. Barbara was raised on a farm and went to school in Avard with her sister Helen. She graduated as valedictorian of her class and attended Northwestern State College where she met William Rufus “Bill” Gordon. Bill and Barbara were married on July 9, 1948, at the First Christian Church in Avard. She and Bill made their home in Alva where they raised three children: Judy, Janet and Roger. Barbara was a bookkeeper at C.E. Loomis Furniture Company; she and Bill owned and operated Wardrobe Cleaners where she did alterations; she worked at Share Memorial Hospital and in both the offices of Dr. Hinkle and Dr. Shelton. Barbara was a member of the FCE chapter of the Oklahoma State University Home Extension Organization. She chaired the home

arts division of the Woods County Fair. She held many offices in the Nescatunga Arts Council. Barbara was a faithful member of her Sunday school class and sang in the choir at Alva First Baptist Church. In the 1950s, Bill and Barbara formed a Rook Club with several other couples. They played Rook monthly for over 40 years in the same group. Many happy memories were made over the years traveling with family and friends, attending the Ranger and Goldbug activities, and, despite a four-hour drive, they rarely missed their grandchildren’s events. The last five years of her life were spent living with family in Oologah, where she continued to participate in Sunday school and choir at Oologah First Baptist Church. Besides her parents, Barbara was preceded in death by her husband Bill Gordon, her son Roger Gordon, and her sister Helen Gooch. Barbara is survived by two daughters: Judy Gilliam and husband Bruce of Tulsa, and Janet Helvick and husband Bruce of Talala; seven grandchildren: Jeremy Gilliam and wife Sarah, Steven Gilliam, Emily Downum and husband Charles, Bobby Parker and wife Stefanie, Laura Kvam and husband Jeff, Cindy Helvick, and Thomas Helvick; six great grandchildren: Kylee Parker, Kael Kvam, Ben Barber, C.J., Carson and Madelyn Downum; other relatives and friends. Memorial contributions may be made through the funeral home to the Alva First Baptist Church. Remembrances may be shared with the family at www. marshallfuneralhomes.com.

Lightning causes two fires By Marione Martin The deluge of rain brought by Monday’s storm in Alva caused problems as people coped with roof leaks and flooded basements. The storm also brought lightning, which caused problems for firefighters. The Alva Fire Department responded to two fires Monday

involving tanks at oilfield sites, both caused by lightning. The first was at a Chesapeake Energy salt water tank at County Road 500 and Greer. The second occurred south of Alva at Highway 281 and Garvin Road on another tank. The ownership of that tank was not available.

Hospital authority and city council seek sales tax re-designation The Alva Hospital Authority has scheduled a special meeting on Aug. 5 at 5 p.m. The trustees will be considering and acting upon a request to the Alva City Council seeking a public election to lift the capital improvement restriction on the current 1.25 percent sales tax for the hospital. Included in the measure is language related to the bond obligation on hospital improvements. That same evening, the Alva City Council will consider a resolution and ordinance to allow the hospital sales tax re-designation to be included in the municipal election to be held Nov. 12. The proposed measure will not have any impact on the current sales tax rate. Lifting the restriction would allow the hospital to use excess tax dollars for other aspects of hospital operations after debt repayment obligations have been

met. Currently, the hospital is observing strict spending reductions, including hours reductions for non-patient care staff, suspension of non-essential operating activities and the discontinuance or sale of costdetrimental programs and services. Fees for services are being collected at the time services are rendered. These and other financial decisions over the past two years have improved the medical center’s financial position compared to the five years prior. Despite this improvement, regulatory and legislative demands have forever changed rural hospital finances. The Charles Morton Share Trust has provided a bridge loan to the medical center in order to ensure current obligations can be met. Moving forward, the hospital will need access to this excess sales tax

revenue to repay debt and ensure compliance with current and future obligations. Share Memorial Hospital is currently the only hospital of 25beds or less in northwest Oklahoma that has no federal, state, county or local subsidy for operations. In 2004, municipal voters overwhelmingly approved the 1.25 percent sales tax designation for hospital improvements. Since 2006, Share Medical Center has completed over $13 million in hospital enhancements, $9.25 million from the sales tax supported bond issue. Share Medical Center employs over 200 employees and has a greater than $7.2 million annual economic impact on Alva and the surrounding areas. More information will be forthcoming. Questions may be directed to Share Medical Center Chief Executive Officer Kandice Allen at 580-430-3309.

Class of 2012 report card By Marione Martin Classes begin Aug. 22 in the Alva school district. Oklahoma’s tax-free weekend beginning today gives parents an incentive to prepare their students for the new school year. Alva elementary schools have scheduled a Back-to-School Night on Monday, Aug. 19, from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. During this time, students and parents are encouraged to meet teachers and visit their classrooms. Students may also take their school supplies at this time. As students prepare for another year of classes, it’s interesting to look back on previous school years. The Oklahoma Department of Education school report cards provide information about individual school districts compared to those of comparable size and to the state as a whole. Students The most recent report available is from the end of the 2011-2012 school year. During that year, the Alva school district had an average daily enrollment of 921.4 compared to 898.7 the previous year. That’s an increase of 22.7 students or 2.5 percent. Alva had 31.8 percent of students identified as gifted or talented. The state average is 15.5 percent. In the special education category, 15.4 percent of Alva students were included compared to 14.8 percent statewide.

Letter to the Editor

Strangers in Alva On July 25th my husband and I left from Southwest, Mo., to attend our grandson’s wedding in California. We were on our Goldwing motorcycle and I was a passenger behind my husband. Although I am blind I enjoy traveling and we have covered many miles over the years. We were near Alva when we collided with a car and both my husband and I were thrown from the bike unconscious. We were taken by ambulance to the emergency room at Share Medical Center. The EMTs and (OHP) Officer Cory Snyder were compassionate and efficient as they placed us on back boards. We cannot say enough about the marvelous care we received at Share Medical Center. Who would know that a small hospital in a place we had never even heard of before could be so modern in all aspects of our medical needs? The nurses, doctors and

staff were so understanding that they even put me in the same room with my husband. Only a blind person who is so dependent on another can understand how much this meant to me. The care we received was comparable to some of the largest hospitals in the country. There was one downside to our trip other than the accident itself. The officer who brought my travel bag to the hospital thought it was my purse and left my purse itself on the bike. After leaving the hospital we went to get the bike from the towing company only to find we would have to sit in a hot car until the only person who could release our bike returned from lunch. In a great deal of pain and knowing we would have to drive over eight hours to get home, the waiting was very unpleasant. When we finally got the bike back my purse had been riffled through Alva Review-Courier and all my travel money was gone.

Statistics: Okla. crime rate increased in 2012 OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Oklahoma’s overall crime rate increased in 2012, including the highest number of reported rapes in more than a decade, according to recently released statistics from the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation. The statistics show that 1,676 rapes were reported in Oklahoma last year — a nearly 15 percent increase from 2011. The stats also show a 3.9 increase in aggravated assaults, but a 3.3 decrease in robberies. OSBI spokeswoman Jessica Brown told The Oklahoman that it’s hard to tell whether the numbers represent an actual increase in the number of rapes. See Crime Page 7

In My Corner

The gremlin of housing By Arden Chaffee Housing; it’s a gremlin that continues to haunt the recovery in spite of a booming stock market and increased consumer wealth. With the greatest monthly gain in house prices since 2005 posted this month, there is reason to think that investors are getting back into the market. However, the government is still backing nearly 90 percent of new mortgages and historically that has led to unqualified buyers and foreclosure. We know that home ownership isn’t for everyone. Many people choose to wash their hands of property insurance, depreciation, repairs and grounds maintenance. In return, they should be able to use their discretionary income for investments in other arenas.

Unfortunately, housing is the only investment some individuals are able to make, so the discretionary income becomes disposable income. Rana Foroohar in Time magazine says, “Investors remain the dominant force behind the house-price bounce back” and that results in a lower rate of home ownership. At the local level, the rental market is booming as a result of the transient nature of many oil field related jobs but as the boom slows, and permanent positions surface, workers will be seeking to relocate families to traditional dwellings and ownership if the units are available. With low, fixed-rate real estate loans, the shrewd investor should be looking at housing. Over nine percent of market demand is for condominium and duplex style units but they make up only one percent of new housing starts. So, as Lee Haley says, “Do your homework.” The smart money is in housing.

Random Thoughts

Benedict Arnold’s leg By Roger Hardaway Last week I wrote about General Horatio Gates being the commander of colonial forces at the crucial American Revolutionary War battle at Saratoga, N.Y., in 1777. Because the Americans prevailed in that confrontation, France entered the war and helped the colonists win their independence. Another American general at the Battle of Saratoga was Benedict Arnold. Arnold was a great soldier who displayed bravery during this particular showdown with the British. Arnold was severely injured at one of the subsidiary battles near Saratoga when his horse fell on his leg. This same leg had also been damaged in another battle in 1775. Although some sources speak of his leg having to be amputated after the battle, that is not true. The limb was, however, so badly wounded that it limited his military effectiveness thereafter. As probably every first grader in the United

States knows, Arnold eventually switched to the British side during the war. This action forever secured his infamous place in American history as a traitor. In fact, many Americans will commonly refer to anyone they see as being disloyal as “a Benedict Arnold.” Arnold thought that he – not Gates – should have been the commanding general at Saratoga. Afterward, he continually complained that his military genius was being overlooked by George Washington (commander of the continental army) and by members of the Continental Congress. Consequently, Arnold defected in 1780. The following year, the war was over. The Americans had won, and Arnold wound up on the losing side. He spent the years after the war in England where he died in 1801. In 1877, a historian and former Civil War general named John Watts de Peyster financed a monument that is located in the Saratoga National Historic Park. The monument depicts Arnold’s military boot.

Annie’s Mailbox®

Maybe we’re not related Dear Annie: I recently had a conversation with my mother. She mentioned that she and Grandma are not speaking again. She reminisced about how poorly she has been treated by her mother, even as a child. She then mentioned how her mother donates blood frequently, saying she is a universal donor, meaning O-negative. Annie, if my grandmother is O-negative, it’s genetically impossible for her to be my mother’s biological mom, because Mom is AB-negative. Family relations with that side of the family are very fragile, and I am fairly confident that my grandmother would never tell anyone the truth about the situation. I don’t have contacts with relatives on that side of the family because Grandma prohibited it. Should I tell my mother? Should I confront my grandmother? How do I start a search looking for the answers on my own? – R. Dear R.: While it is not common for an O-negative parent to have an AB-negative child, it is not impossible. A lot depends on your grandfather’s blood type and other factors. Everyone involved would have to agree to be tested to know more. We realize you don’t much care for Grandma, but that doesn’t mean she isn’t biologically related to you. Bring this up to your mother only if you believe it would be helpful to her and not simply rub salt in her wounds. Dear Annie: My boyfriend,

“Keith,” has worked at a retail business for 30 years. He has been friends with a female co-worker for a while. “Marla” calls Keith on his cellphone every day, even though he will be at work within a short time. At work, they talk constantly. If he doesn’t work on a specific day, she calls him multiple times at home. I have no problem with their friendship, except that Keith keeps most of this information from me. When I ask him directly about talking to Marla, he denies it, even though I have cellphone records as proof. If it is only a friendship, why is he so secretive? There also have been several occasions where we had plans but Keith made up excuses for being late while he waited for Marla’s phone call. Keith doesn’t understand my frustration of having to wait so that he can talk to his “friend.” And because he has limited minutes on his cell plan, he spends most of them with her, and I get fewer. Am I simply jealous, or should I be concerned about their interactions?–- Tired of Being Second Dear Tired: Keith needs to be transparent in his dealings with Marla. The secrecy and frequency of the contact make it suspicious, and his excuses are a way to maintain the relationship with her at the expense of the one he has with you. It doesn’t matter whether it’s a flirtation, an affair or nothing. He needs to take your feelings

Dear Margo

into consideration and treat your relationship with more respect, instead of creating friction because he likes the attention from Marla. It’s unfair to all of you. Dear Annie: “Too Good of a Cook” said she’d like to have some help with the grocery bills and cooking when her eight grown children and numerous grandchildren visit. This is what we did: Six couples were invited to spend the weekend at a friend’s mountain cabin. The host specified that each couple would be responsible for cooking one meal for everyone and should bring all of the groceries required for that meal. It worked out great, and it was fun to sample everyone else’s cooking. We shared the cooking cleanup and grocery expense. That way, the host could also enjoy the festivities and didn’t have to spend a fortune on groceries and all of his time in the kitchen preparing meals. – Co-Op Kitchen Annie’s Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.

A family secret ... kind of I’ll get straight to it. I’ve been blessed with a wonderfully supportive family. We are famously even-tempered. Successes are celebrated; unpleasant things aren’t discussed. Your mistakes are yours to deal with, unless you ask for help. Two years ago, I learned from an external source that my favorite uncle had a child from an affair. It turns out all the adults in the family know about the affair and child, even his wife. Of course, nothing’s been discussed, just acknowledged. I’m the only “child” (I’m 22 now) who knows. I’m pretty certain my uncle doesn’t know I know. I knew he wasn’t perfect, but I did admire him. My disappointment and confusion mean that I haven’t felt the same about him since. I miss the relationship we had. Also, I’m curious about this cousin I’ve never met. Should I approach my uncle and tell him I know? How do I even begin? – Nervous Niece Dear Nerv: Given what you write about your family, I would not confront your uncle with the news that you know his secret. There is no reason you can’t recapture the wonderful relationship and admiration you felt. The thing you need to understand is that this happened in the past and really has nothing to do with you or your uncle’s admirable qualities. If you are 22, you know that these things happen. There may, in fact, come a time when he will tell you, and then you might ask to meet the cousin. I think you are dramatizing a situation that is not worth all this angst. – Margo,

evenly Dear Margo: I recently went out to dinner with some friends and one of their parents. Her parents were extremely nice, well-mannered people, and I enjoyed meeting them. However, the father (I’ll call him “Earl”) was somewhat rude to the waitress at dinner. He was very demanding and impatient and blamed the waitress for things that clearly weren’t her fault. I was embarrassed by this, but said nothing and just tried to be as nice to the waitress as I could. I used to wait tables and know firsthand what a difficult job it can be. When the check came, Earl insisted on paying for everyone. I appreciated his generosity, but I wasn’t certain what sort of tip Earl would leave, so I lagged behind and looked at the check after everyone had left. The tip was barely 15 percent, and we had received excellent service. In this day and age, 20 percent is the standard for good service, and I refuse to leave less because I know how much servers depend on tips. I tucked in extra to make up the difference, but my friend came back, saw me and asked me what I was doing. I explained to her that I didn’t feel comfortable leaving such a low tip for the level of service provided.

Click and Clack Talk Cars

Midlife-crisis car should be impractical By Tom and Ray Magliozzi Dear Tom and Ray: I am fast approaching my midlife crisis and want to buy a Jeep. I have wanted one for decades, but I am very cautious and always purchased autos with high reliability ratings. I don’t want to completely throw caution to the wind, so I really want to know how old of a Jeep (Wrangler/ Rubicon) I can get and still have the reliability factor? – Rita RAY: Rita, Rita, Rita. You’re completely misunderstanding the whole concept of a midlife crisis. TOM: It’s supposed to be when you do something stupid, like buy an old Jeep. It’s about doing something you’ve always wanted to do but been heretofore restrained by your good common sense! RAY: So, buying an impractical car is exactly what you need to do. The whole idea is to see what you’ve been missing all these years. TOM: So if you’ve been lusting after Jeeps for decades while living in your practical world of ultrareliable Hondas and Toyotas, you need to buy one of those Jeeps and see how the world looks when your head is bouncing against a canvas roof. RAY: My guess is that, since you appear to be a logical, intelligent person, you’ll love the Jeep for about three weeks. Then you’ll

She said nothing at the time, but later told me she was deeply offended by what I had done and felt that I had been very rude, considering her father’s generosity. I apologized for offending her but said I will not leave a low tip for someone who doesn’t deserve it. We worked it out and are fine now, but my question is: Was I being rude? How should I have handled the situation? Situations like this may arise in the future, and I would like to figure out a diplomatic way of ensuring the server gets the tip they deserve without offending anyone.–Big Tipper Dear Big: Your intention was right, but what you did was rude, if only because you were seen doing it. If it’s not your party, you aren’t responsible for the host’s tipping behavior. If there had been a way to observe what the bill and the tip were –- at the time – you could’ve tucked some extra under your plate The caption that de Peyster put in a discreet manner.

get tired of the noise, the barbaric ride and the lousy handling. But that’s fine. A midlife crisis is about exploring your own personality and why you’ve always made certain reasonable choices. And in most cases, it’s about realizing that those choices were pretty good all along! TOM: And that’s fine! What’s the worst thing that happens? You buy a Jeep, you have fun with it, you get sick of it, you sell it and you buy something else. That in itself may be liberating, Rita. RAY: Maybe what you need to learn in midlife is that making a small mistake is not the end of the world. Unless you flip your Jeep over, in which case it is. TOM: So be careful out there, and try not to make any mistakes that are irreversible, like investing your life savings in corndog futures.

Grandparents often lead the way By David Shaw, Pastor First Baptist Church, Waynoka The Scriptures say, “You shall give due honor and respect to the elderly” (Leviticus 19:32). Another translation says, “Show respect to old people” (Leviticus 19:32). Paul said, “Do not speak angrily to an elder man, but talk to him as if he were your father …. Treat older women like mothers …” (I Timothy 5:1a-2a). That’s our responsibility to our grandparents. But grandparents also have a responsibility. Paul said to them: “Teach older men to have self-control, to be serious and to be wise. They should be strong in faith, strong in love and strong in patience. Also, teach older women

to be holy in the way they live ...” (Titus 2:2-3a). We honor our grandparents because they have such an important impact on their families and communities. They leave a permanent legacy by the life they live. Paul reminded a young man named Timothy that his faith had been passed on to him by a grandmother. He said, “Remember your true faith. That kind of faith first belonged to your grandmother, Lois ...” (2 Timothy 1:5). Timothy had a great gift and played a crucial role in the early church. Paul tells him that since he has been blessed with a Christian family, it’s now his turn to pass on these blessings. He said, “That is why I remind you to use the gift God gave you ...” (2 Timothy 1:6a).

Timothy wouldn’t have been the leader he was without the teaching and example of his grandparents. Jesus knew we are able to understand a living lesson better than a spoken lesson. That’s why role models are so important. Many stories are told about children who follow in their parents’ and grandparents’ footsteps. Once a granddad and his grandson were climbing a mountain. They came to a place where the climbing was difficult and even dangerous. The old man stopped to consider which way he could go. Just then he heard the little boy behind him say, “Choose a good path, Paw-Paw, ‘cause I’m coming right behind you!” That’s always true. Older peo-

Grandparents

ple bear the responsibility of walking in the right path, because their children and grandchildren are usually right behind them. Grandparents have great opportunities to mentor and guide youth. A large billboard

sponsored by a church group expresses it this way: “No other success compensates for failure in the home!” Grandparents, you have such an influence on your family and especially your grandchildren.

Driftwood Christian Church joins Biblereading campaign The Bible is the best-selling book in history, but how many people in are actually reading it? A Gallup survey reports the average American household has four Bibles. However, research by the Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life found that only 16 percent of Americans read the Bible every day. Driftwood Christian Church is hoping to reverse this trend, starting with its own congregation on Sept. 8 at 9:45 a.m. Pastor Max Boothby believes that “The Story” is the right tool to increase Biblical literacy, helping readers increase their understanding from Genesis to Revelation. Consisting of 31 chapters of scriptures in chronological order, “The Story” presents the Bible in a novel-like format. “The Story” is published by Zondervan, the world’s leading Christian book publisher. “I want the people in my congregation, as well as all of Alfalfa County, to realize the incredible

love God has for them and how their story is found in His story,” said Pastor Max Boothby of Driftwood Christian Church. “The Bible is central to our faith,” he said, “but many people are intimidated by its scope and size. The Story gives us a way to journey from Genesis to Revelation together in 31 weeks so everyone understands God’s story and how their story intersects with it.” The Story Church Campaign, which thousands of churches across the country are participating in, provides curriculum for children, teen and adult Sunday schools and corresponding sermons. When accompanied by reading through the five age-related books (“The Story,” “The Story: Teen Edition,” “The Story for Kids,” “The Story for Children,” and “The Story for Little Ones), the entire church can be literally on the same page for 31 weeks.

Crime

“The problem is that a lot of rapes and other sexual assaults don’t get reported,” Brown said. “So, were there more rapes last year or did more people just report them?” Brown said she hopes victims will continue to report rapes and sexual assaults, and said law enforcement tries to educate the public about reporting such crimes. “I think society is not looking

at it as shameful, for the victim, to report cases of rape. ... I’m hopeful that’s the case,” Brown said. The number of cases classified as homicides was unchanged from 2011 and 2012, with 219 reported each year. Since 2000, the highest number of homicides was 229 in 2009. The agency also said nonviolent crimes rose by 1.6 percent last year, including a 5 percent increase in vehicle theft.

Northwestern professor attends ‘Day on the Hill’

Dr. Beverly Warden, professor and chair of the Division of Education at Northwestern Oklahoma State University, recently attended “Day on the Hill” in Washington, D.C. “Day on the Hill” is a vital advocacy event for the American Association of Colleges for Teacher Education. Deans and faculty from across the country gather to meet with their members of Congress and take the opportunity to showcase their programs with their representatives. Warden and other leaders of the

Oklahoma Association of Colleges of Teacher Education met with Congressman James Lankford. “Education is a commonality, and everyone spoke of the importance of education promotion,” Warden said. “The congressman graciously gave us his time and really seemed to listen to our concerns.” Warden and her peers brought to Lankford’s attention one of the most pressing issues with education in Oklahoma: the Residency Year Program. Due to budget cuts this program has

been put on hiatus. Warden said the Residency Year Program is important for first-year teachers with alternative certificates because it provides these teachers with mentors from a higher education mentoring team. “It was rather exciting to be a part of the process,” Warden said. “It was a humbling experience to be in the presence of those who are holding the reins to our country and feel we were actually heard.” For more information, contact Warden at 580-327-8450 or bjwarden@nwosu.edu.

Fallin approaches $1M in One driver injured in 2014 campaign war chest Major County collision By Sean Murphy OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — The latest campaign filing reports show Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin has nearly $1 million in her campaign war chest as she eyes a re-election bid in 2014, even though no formal challengers have emerged. In a campaign finance report filed late Wednesday, Fallin reported raising $432,000 during the three-month period from April 1 to June 30, with about $970,000 in cash on hand at the end of the quarter. The quarterly campaign finance reports for all candidates for state offices were due by midnight. No Republican or Democratic challengers have emerged to take on Fallin in 2014. “There is not a candidate now, but we know there could be,” said Fallin spokesman Alex Weintz. “We’re out there raising money, setting up a strong grassroots organization and making sure we’re doing everything we need to online and in the digital space to make sure we run a strong campaign.” Among the more spirited statewide races on the ballot are challenges from both sides for the post held by State Superintendent

Janet Barresi, whose first term got off to a rocky start with clashes with the state school board. Barresi reported raising $1,100 and loaning her campaign $100,000 during the last quarter. Republican challenger Joy Hofmeister of Tulsa, a former state school board member appointed to the post by Fallin, reported raising $146,000 during the quarter, even though she didn’t file formal campaign papers until May. On the Democratic side, a school superintendent from southeastern Oklahoma, Donna Anderson, reported raising nearly $10,000 during the quarter, including a $1,000 personal loan. Anderson, of Kingston, reported having about $6,500 in cash on hand at the end of the period. Democratic Party Chairman Wallace Collins said other Democrats have announced plans to run, but none had filed quarterly campaign finance reports by the midnight deadline. Candidates who have spent or received more than $500 are required to register a campaign committee with the Oklahoma Ethics Commission. After that, those committees must file either

quarterly campaign finance reports or statements of inactivity or face fines of up to $100 per day up to a maximum of $1,000, said Lee Slater, the new executive director of the Ethics Commission. Republican Insurance Commissioner John Doak showed the heftiest campaign war chest after the governor, with more than $264,000 in cash on hand at the end of the quarter, during which he raised nearly $25,000. Campaign filings show Republican Labor Commissioner Mark Costello has drawn a Democratic opponent in Michael Workman of Tulsa, who reported raising $1,000 in the quarter. Costello has not created a 2014 campaign committee and filed a statement of inactivity indicating no campaign fundraising or expenditures during the quarter. Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt also has not created a 2014 campaign committee. Oklahoma Treasurer Ken Miller reported raising about $10,000 during the quarter, with nearly $66,000 in cash on hand. State Auditor Gary Jones reported raising about $4,500 in the quarter, with about $6,300 remaining. Lt. Gov. Todd Lamb reported raising $31,000 in the quarter — nearly all from six maximum $5,000 donors — to bring his total receipts to more than $50,000. He finished the quarter with about $47,000 in funds remaining. His Democratic challenger, Oklahoma City restaurateur Cathy Cummings, reported raising $260 in the quarter, with $460 remaining.

Summit planned to educate seniors on Medicare The Oklahoma Economic Development Area Agency on Aging would like to invite all senior Medicare beneficiaries to the Senior Summit Aug. 19 at the High Plains VoTech center in Woodward from 9 a.m. to noon. Seniors residing in Woods County are encourage to attend. Oklahoma’s 600,000 Medicare beneficiaries can learn more about their enrollment options during a series of Senior Summits conducted by the Oklahoma Medicare Assistance Program (MAP). The events are designed to prepare Medicare beneficiaries for open enrollment, which takes place from Oct. 15 to Dec. 7. Any changes made during this time go into effect Jan. 1, 2014. “These events are a great way to educate Oklahomans about Medicare,” said Oklahoma Insurance Commissioner John D.

Doak. “Our MAP counselors can explain the differences between the plans and look for ways to save money. I encourage every Oklahoman on Medicare to attend a Senior Summit.” The free events are funded through a grant provided by the Senior Health Insurance Counseling Program (SHIP). The summits will be held from Aug. 1 to Sept. 19. During last year’s open enrollment period, MAP counselors helped more than 7,000 Medicare beneficiaries review their plans. Their average savings was between $500 and $1,000. One individual, after reviewing her Part D drug plan, had the opportunity to save $33,000. Those who can’t attend a Senior Summit are encouraged to call MAP at 1-800-763-2828 If you have any questions, please contact Dusty Elam or Leona Perry at 580-625-4531.

‘Picture My Weekend’ Scavenger Hunt was a success Nearly 40 people took part in the 6th annual Picture My Weekend Photography Show and Workshop July 26-27 in Alva, some from as far away as Buffalo and Eldorado, Okla. A steady crowd of participants and community members attended the Friday night Photography Show where they were entertained by Fred Riggins, who sang and played guitar. The top winners in the Photography Show included Konya Martin of Carmen, first place; Laura Radford of Alva, second; and Teresa James of Vici, third. The best photo in the special photography category themed “Trees” was Radford’s, which also was voted as the People’s Choice winner. Every year at Picture My Weekend during the Saturday portion of workshops, time is set aside for the participants to complete a photography assignment. Photos from the assignment are placed into a slideshow that is viewed at the end of the day. That slideshow is then converted to video, and a link to it is placed online for everyone to view. Once it is finished, it will be available at www.nwosu.edu/pmwvideos-photos. All of the winning photos will be identified in the slideshow video. This year’s photography assignment was a Photo Scavenger Hunt of more than 100 words or phrases that could be found in Alva to photograph. Participants weren’t expected to get all of the photos on the list taken, but were encouraged to be as creative as possible with the images they were able to create,

In a special photography category themed “Trees,” Laura Radford’s (right) photo was chosen as the best tree photo, which also was voted as the People’s Choice winner. Picture My Weekend committee member Erika Birk (left) presents Radford with a certificate for winning the category.

No human West Nile cases Drought lessens in Okla. reported yet in Oklahoma after record rainfall

Okla. Senate to hold studies on veterans’ issues

By Ken Miller OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Despite a wetter than normal spring and early summer, there has yet to be a reported human case of the potentially deadly West Nile virus, according to the Oklahoma State Department of Health. The first mosquitoes of 2013 to be confirmed in Oklahoma as carrying the virus were found in Tulsa County, the Tulsa Health Department reported Thursday. There had been eight confirmed cases of the disease in Oklahoma by the end of July 2012, and more than 30 by midAugust, on the way to a record number of 178 cases for the year. Fifteen of those people died, also a state record. Culex mosquitoes, which tend to thrive in stagnant water, contract the virus from infected birds and pass it along to humans through their bites. The virus also tends to run in cycles, said state Health Department epidemiologist Laurence Burnsed, and the reason for that has proved difficult to pinpoint. “The last two years in which we had a high number of cases, it was followed by years of not as many cases,” Burnsed said. “Bird populations can decline, reducing the number of infected mosquitoes.” The virus was first recorded in Oklahoma in 2002 with 15 cases, jumping to 79 cases in 2003. The number fell to 19 in 2004 and rose to a then-record 98 cases and nine deaths in 2007. The numbers then dropped to nine cases in both 2008 and 2009.

An average of 5.11 inches of rain fell across Oklahoma during July, 2.37 inches more than normal to make it the 15th-wettest July since record-keeping began in 1895, according to the Oklahoma Climatological Survey. The amount of rain and the generally consistent rainfall may have played a role in keeping the mosquito population down thus far, said Bruce Noden, a professor of public health and veterinary entomology at Oklahoma State University. “If you’ve got water hanging around for three or four weeks, two months, it becomes a breeding site. But if that water level is changing, moving, it changes the nutrients and the habitat” of the mosquito, Noden said. The West Nile virus season is considered to be May through November in Oklahoma, with the greatest risk from July through October, according to the Health Department. Symptoms of West Nile virus include fever, headache, dizziness and muscle weakness. Long-lasting complications can include difficulty concentrating, migraine headaches, extreme muscle weakness and tremors and paralysis. Measures to avoid the disease include using an insect repellent containing DEET when outdoors; eliminating standing water from items such as buckets, pool covers, tires and gutters; and changing pet water dishes daily. “We are still in the middle of a typical season, and people need to remember those preventive measures and follow them,” said Burnsed.

The photos with the most votes would then become the top three photos of the day, and will possibly be used on the cover of next year’s Alva Chamber of Commerce directory.

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Recent rainfalls have eased drought conditions throughout much of Oklahoma. The latest U.S. Drought Monitor numbers released Thursday show that nearly 53 percent of the state is experiencing abnormally dry or drought conditions. Last week, that number was 75 percent. The National Weather Service says parts of Oklahoma experienced record rainfall in the past week. Oklahoma City set a

new daily record after receiving 3.53 inches of rain for July 26. Lawton recorded 5.58 inches of rain during a 24-hour period from July 25 to July 26, while a Mesonet site in Walters recorded 3.36 inches of rain in one hour. The U.S. Drought Monitor says western Oklahoma and the Panhandle are still experiencing extreme drought. No drought conditions were reported in 47 percent of the state, including central Oklahoma.

$2 million Powerball ticket sold in Ada OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — The Oklahoma Lottery Commission says a Powerball ticket worth $2 million was sold at a convenience store in Ada. The commission said Thursday that the ticket for the Wednesday night drawing was sold at D & W Quick Stop and the winner has not yet claimed the prize. The winning numbers for the drawing are 8, 24, 39, 49 and 59. The Powerball number is 5. The

ticket matched the first five numbers for a $1 million prize and the purchaser bought the power play option that doubled the winnings. Winners have 180 days from the day of the drawing to claim their prize at the Oklahoma Lottery Headquarters in Oklahoma City. There was no jackpot winner and the jackpot increased to an estimated $290 million for Saturday’s drawing.

6-year-old killed in ATV accident SAYRE, Okla. (AP) — A 6-year-old boy from Sayre has died after he was pinned underneath an ATV. The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says Brody Jennings was killed Wednesday morning when the ATV he was riding on with two other boys rolled over, ejecting all three boys and pinning the 6 year old. The patrol says Jennings was trapped for about 15 minutes before relatives freed him. He was transported by vehicle to a local hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

A 10-year-old boy driving the vehicle was not injured, while a 13-year-old passenger sustained a minor arm injury. The boys were not wearing seatbelts.

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — The Oklahoma Senate’s Veterans Committee plans to conduct three legislative studies this fall on issues affecting Oklahoma’s veterans. One study will look at the possibility of expanding eligibility for entry into the state’s seven veterans’ centers to include all veterans, not just select groups. Currently, only veterans who have served during specified periods are eligible for admission to the centers, leaving an entire generation of veterans with no access to the centers. The second study will evaluate the qualifications, structure and duties of the War Veterans Commission, the governing body of the Oklahoma Department of Veterans Affairs. The final study will look at direct care staffing at the veterans centers. Currently, employment turnover at the centers is nearly 70 percent, costing taxpayers about $4 million a year in lost productivity.

A pocket knife and a tree branch launch artist’s career By Helen Barrett A three-quarter mile walk up a hill using a tree branch for assistance launched Featured Artist of the Month Nancy Russell’s career as an award-winning sculptress. “It was an accident, really,” Russell said. “I’ve always been creative. I grew up behind a sewing machine – a treadle.” Nancy’s dad had to put a wooden block on the treadle for her to reach it. “I made doll clothes, and by my sophomore year I was designing and making all my own clothes”, she said. “By the time I finished high school I was sewing for others.” She quit her “business” when mother-daughter dresses became popular. “It was too difficult working with the teenage girls,” Nancy said. After she married her Air Force husband in her home state of Minnesota, she started sewing designer clothes including her wedding dress. She and her husband, wellknown author Sheldon Russell, had a little girl after four years into their marriage. In addition to making hers and her daughter’s clothes, she made quilts. “The quilts were a more creative outlet,” she said. “Then I just woke up one morning and didn’t want to sew anymore.” An Accidental Change of Careers She turned her attention to the farm house, fixing and redecorating it. The old house had no air conditioning, so when it started getting hot, she would walk up the hill about ¾ of a mile to their Airstream air-conditioned trailer where Sheldon was writing books. “On the way I found a stick to carry with me,” she said. Her usual routine was to go in, have a cup of coffee with her husband and take a nap. This time, he met her at the door and asked her not to come in because he was at an important part of his writing and didn’t want to lose his train of thought. Seeing the stick in her hand, he handed her a knife and told her to whittle on her walking stick while she waited. “When he opened the door, he looked at my stick and said, “I

THE ARTIST — Nancy Russell shows some of her Dragon Bone pottery. Photo by Helen Barrett didn’t know you could do that.” Frankly, she didn’t either. “We started going out in in the woods and finding interesting natural sticks,” she said. She started by carving a man in the nude with his hands crossed in front covering his private parts. “Sheldon really liked that piece, so he started getting me real tools.” Nancy started out carving native woods found in the area, including the extremely hard black walnut. She visited wood carving shows to learn what other artists were producing. “A friend invited me to go a show. It had never occurred to me to show my stuff,” she said. “That’s how I got started showing.” “I don’t know if I was that good or lousy at pricing, but they wiped out my table.”

Her friend wanted her to show at the Tulsa show, which was a little less than a year away. “I worked really hard,” she said. “All my carvings were of wood.” When she set up her table, experienced woodworkers came and looked, and asked why she didn’t have any bas relief? “I didn’t know there was such a thing as bas relief,” Nancy said. An experienced carver told her she should start with bas relief instead of starting directly on the wood. All of her pieces sold and she won three ribbons for her efforts: first place in the beginners’ category, third place for a piece called “Lady of Flame,” and Best of Show out of the 110 tables. “I didn’t know carvers carved for specific categories,” she said. “Sheldon and I were just blown away by that. He started buying me more tools, band saws, better chisels and drill presses.” As she became more serious about her sculpting, Sheldon supported her by helping more with household chores. “He’s really good at cooking stir fry,” she said with a big smile.

BUFFALO IN RUT — The black tongue protruding from the buffalo’s mouth indicates it is looking for a mate. Photo by Helen Barrett would assume the care of their three grandchildren. “We found a fantastic babysitter. For half a day they would be at the babysitter’s and I would do my sculpting,” she said. “The other half I would be caretaker.” The Russells bought a building in Guthrie out of condemnation, renovated it into a studio for Nancy, a writing haven for Sheldon, and a home on the upper floor. They did that for 10 years when suddenly Nancy became extremely ill. She was diagnosed with colon cancer, which she fought for four years. Simultaneously, her granddaughter announced that she was pregnant. “I asked my oncologist for a huge favor – to keep me alive until that baby was born,” Nancy said. She told him to try anything in the book that would keep her alive, and he did. Two nights, the doctor stayed with her at the hospital, thinking she wouldn’t make it through the night. When the baby was finally born, Nancy was disappointed to learn she could not touch the

baby. She was considered too toxic from all the treatments. “I made it and I’m doing fine,” she said. “All my checkups have been coming back clean with no cancer markers showing in my blood. I don’t worry about it anymore.” When her second grandchild was born, she was able to be the first family member besides the mother, father and big sister, to love on the new baby. The Farm Calls Sheldon began making more frequent trips to the family farm north of Waynoka. The quietness of the country provided a perfect atmosphere for writing. They worked on the house to make it livable. Nancy would spend three nights at the farm and four days at the gallery in Guthrie. “I thought the driving was too much and we might as well move there,” she said. They began working on the old chicken coop, making it a studio for Nancy. Once that was finished, they started turning the

old oil house into a writing studio for Sheldon. Their latest project is renovating the garage near the chicken coop as a place for Nancy’s larger equipment. “Sheldon works five days a week on his writing, and I work on my sculpture every day.” She learned over the years to first sculpt her design in clay before making a wooden piece. She sometimes hollows out the inside in order to make it a bronze statue. Other times, she fires the piece in a kiln.

the month of August at the Graceful Arts Gallery in Alva. The collection features whimsical pieces such as her blue eyed pigs, giant buffalo carvings and her newest project, a pottery collection aptly named “Dragon Bones.” The pottery pieces feature beautifully glazed insides with rougher, dragon-like skin textures outside. The collection will be available to the public for viewing at tonight’s First Friday Art Walk. When viewing all the pieces, look closely at each detail from the hairs on the buffalo tails to the eyes of the different pieces. The art walk runs from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.

Beechcraft lands nearly $1.4 billion deal By Roxana Hegeman WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — Newly reorganized Beechcraft Corp. said Thursday it’s received a nearly $1.4 billion order — believed to be the largest propeller aircraft order by value in general aviation history. The Wichita-based plane maker won a contract to build up to 105 King Air 350i aircraft, valued at $788 million, from Wheels Up, a New York City-based private aviation membership company. Beechcraft was also named comprehensive maintenance provider for Wheels Up in North America and Western Europe, a contract worth $600 million. The first 35 planes, built in Wichita, will be delivered between now and mid-2015, with nine scheduled for this year, Beechcraft said in a news release. The deal includes options for 70 more aircraft as Wheels Up expands over the next two to three years. “It is the largest propeller aircraft order, by value, and it is quite exciting to see the restructured Beechcraft have such a win,” said Jens Hennig, vice president for operations at General Aircraft Manufacturers Association, the industry’s trade group. Over the past year, the industry has seen “positiveW movement” in deliveries for all types of propeller aircraft, Hennig said. “It seems like the propeller market has finally shook off this past recession and are producing positive results,” he said. The King Air 350i has standard seating for nine passengers and is touted by Beechcraft as one of the “greenest” business aircraft because of its fuel efficiency and low operating costs. Wheels Up is a membershipbased aviation program established by its former Marquis Jet founder Kenny Dichter and other investors.

The company charges customers an initiation fee and annual dues, and then charges an hourly fee for private air travel. Beechcraft CEO Bill Boisture said the order gives the company “a very nice foundation” on which to plan future production, and is a sign of sustained stability for workers and a good outlook for the company. “It also is a big signal to customers — prospects that may have been sort of on the sidelines during our bankruptcy — that there are big things happening here and a lot of confidence in the company going forward,” Boisture said. The other big impact comes from the fleet’s maintenance of this fleet, which Boisture termed “a very good piece of long-term business” for the company. The first planes will be primarily serviced out of Beechcraft’s Wilmington, Del., service center. Beechcraft Corp., formerly Hawker Beechcraft, emerged in February from bankruptcy protection. The company no longer builds business jets after shedding those unprofitable manufacturing operations in the bankruptcy, and is in talks with several interested parties in the sale of those assets. The reorganized company is focusing on special mission, trainer and light attack airplane markets for the military, while continuing its turboprop and piston airplane manufacturing. While the value of the Beechcraft contract may be the largest single order for propeller aircraft, at least one other aircraft manufacturer has actually sold more planes. In 1997, Wichitabased Cessna Aircraft sold 300 single-engine aircraft to EmbryRiddle Aeronautical University, Hennig and Cessna said.

Kansas senator, mayor spar over gun rights website WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — A Kansas state senator is demanding that Wichita Mayor Carl Brewer take his name off the website of Mayors Against Illegal Guns group. The Wichita Eagle reports that state Sen. Michael O’Donnell used a Facebook post to question the city’s membership in New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s coalition. “Why would Wichita be a member of this group — the brainchild of Michael ‘you can’t drink soda’ Bloomberg? If you care about the 2nd amendment please contact our city leaders and ask them to drop out of this ‘gun control’ group!” O’Donnell posted on Facebook. O’Donnell told the newspaper he has not spoken to the mayor about the issue. “I believe personally that, based on the mayor’s public positions with guns and his animosity toward the concealed carry law

and gun owners from the bench as evidenced by his voting record, this fits right in with his outlook toward gun owners and gun rights,” O’Donnell said. “It more mirrors New York City than Wichita, Kansas.” Brewer said he vaguely remembers the group’s formation in 2006, but doesn’t remember Wichita signing on. While he doesn’t want guns in public places, Brewer said he respects gun rights. “To say I don’t support gun rights at all is silly,” Brewer said. “I have guns myself. Everyone knows that.” The group’s mission statement, posted on its website, says it supports the Second Amendment and the rights of citizens to own guns. “We recognize that the vast majority of gun dealers and gun owners carefully follow the law. And we know that a policy that is appropriate for a small town in one region of the country is not necessarily appropriate for a big city in another region of the country,” according to the statement. “But what binds us together is a determination to fight crime, and a belief that we can do more to stop criminals from getting guns while also protecting the rights of citizens to freely own them.” Brewer said he’s unaware of any shift in the group’s focus.
