Collision takes life of Alva man By Marione Martin Seth Farris, 24, of Alva died from injuries received in a two-vehicle collision Wednesday night. The collision occurred at 6 p.m. on US64 and County Road 370 five miles west of Alva in Woods County. Farris was pinned in his vehicle approximately 15 minutes before being freed by the Alva Fire Department. He was transported by Alva EMS to Share Medical Center where he succumbed to his injuries upon arrival. According to a report from the Oklahoma Highway Patrol, Sergio Martinez, 39, of Benton, Ark., was driving a 2006 Ford F250 pickup north on County Road 370 when he failed to stop at the stop sign and struck a 2002 Ford Escape driven by Farris. Neither of the drivers was wearing a seatbelt. Martinez was transported to Share Medical Center by Alva EMS where he was treated for head and arm injuries and released. Trooper Gene Goodson investigated the collision, assisted by troopers Darrin Lancaster, Jason Burch and Jeff Jech as well as the Woods County Sheriff’s Office, Alva Fire Department and Alva EMS.

By Marione Martin A vehicle backing from a private drive struck another vehicle that was passing by on the street. The collision occurred Tuesday, Nov. 5, at 10:20 a.m. on Choctaw Street east of 12th Street. Ashley Murray, 19, of Alva was backing her 2007 Dodge south from a private drive on Choctaw and struck a westbound 2007 Kia driven by Joanne Price, 61, of Alva. No injuries were reported, and the vehicles were able to be driven away from the scene. Alva Police Officer Brian File investigated the collision. By Lynn L. Martin The first 40 minutes of the Woods County commissioners’ Tuesday meeting involved a discussion with OGE representatives and their contractors about the large transmission line being routed through Woods County from the Woodward area to the Kansas border.

A short safety program will be presented by Steve Foster and that permits the commissioners to pay for the meal for each employee who attends the safety meeting. The meal will be catered by Sterlings at $10 per head. The commissioners approved the Christmas dinner, plus a bonus of $1,500 for each full-time employee with at least one year of service to the county. The commissioners, who provided a similar bonus last year, emphasized this is a year-by-year decision depending upon finances and is not guaranteed to happen each year. The commissioners tabled a mineral lease proposal from Chesapeake as they felt the money offered was lower than they expected. They also approved a $4,400 bill on bridge inspection services.

Judge won’t delay trial for Okla. ex-lawmaker OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — A judge in Oklahoma City has refused to delay the upcoming trial for a former state senator accused of bribery. Attorneys representing former Sen. Debbe Leftwich had sought a three-month delay of her trial because of publicity surrounding the recent conviction of her co-defendant, former state Rep. Randy Terrill. Prosecutors allege that Terrill set Leftwich up with a job at the state medical examiner’s office in exchange for not running for re-

election. A jury convicted Terrill last month of bribery. At a hearing Wednesday, Special Judge Cindy Truong said that an impartial jury can be seated in Oklahoma County for Leftwich’s trial beginning Dec. 9. Leftwich’s attorney, Robert McCampbell, tells The Oklahoman (http://bit.ly/19mUWH7) that the trial will show that evidence involving Leftwich is “very different” from Terrill’s case. *** Information from: The Oklahoman, http://www.newsok.com

Victims’ families call Bulger ‘Satan,’ ‘terrorist’ By Denise Lavoie BOSTON (AP) — The families of people killed by South Boston crime boss James “Whitey” Bulger and his gang finally got the chance Wednesday to tell Bulger how his long reign of terror damaged their lives, calling him a “terrorist,” a “punk” and even “Satan.” A stone-faced Bulger refused to look at them, again declared his trial a sham and didn’t take his opportunity to address the judge. Bulger, his back to the families, stared straight ahead and scribbled on a legal pad as a dozen relatives stood one by one in a packed courtroom and poignantly described the loss of their loved ones and their contempt for Bulger. The son of a man who was gunned down by Bulger in 1974 addressed Bulger as “Satan” and described how his father, a member of a rival gang, first disappeared in 1974 but wasn’t found until decades later when his body was discovered in a watery grave. Sean McGonagle was 11 when his father, Paul, disappeared. He said Bulger called his family’s house the following year and said, “Your father won’t be coming home for Christmas.” When he asked, “Who’s this?” Bulger responded, “Santa Claus,” McGonagle said. “You’re a domestic terrorist fueled by greed and sickening evil,” McGonagle said. Several family members blasted corrupt FBI agents for protecting Bulger for years while he was working simultaneously as a crime boss and an FBI informant who ratted out the rival New England Mafia and other crime groups. David Wheeler, the son of a Tulsa, Okla., businessman who was shot between the eyes by a hit man for Bulger’s gang, delivered a blistering condemnation of both the FBI and the Justice Department, which successfully argued to have his family’s wrongful death lawsuit

dismissed on the grounds that it was filed too late. “They are as responsible for that murder as the defendant here sitting before you,” Wheeler said. He called Bulger a “government-sponsored assassin” but said the “greatest shame of all” falls on the FBI. Former Boston FBI agent John Connolly Jr. — Bulger’s handler when he was an informant — was sentenced to 10 years in prison after being convicted of tipping the gangster off ahead of an indictment. After receiving the tip in 1994, Bulger fled Boston and remained a fugitive for more than 16 years until he was captured in Santa Monica, Calif., in 2011. Connolly was later convicted of second-degree murder in Florida for leaking information to Bulger that led to the slaying of a gambling executive. Judge Denise Casper asked Bulger if he wanted to speak, but he declined. She was slated to hand down Bulger’s sentence Thursday. Prosecutors have recommended two consecutive life sentences, plus five years. Lawyers for the 84-year-old Bulger declined to make a recommendation. Attorney Hank Brennan said Bulger refused to participate in the sentencing process because he believes his trial was a “sham.” During the trial, Bulger used the same word when he explained to the judge why he decided not to testify in his own defense. Bulger claims that a nowdeceased federal prosecutor had given him immunity to commit crimes in exchange for Bulger’s offer to protect him from the Mafia. The judge refused to allow Bulger to use that claim as a defense to his long list of crimes, including murders. Outside court, Bulger attorney J.W. Carney Jr. said despite Bulger’s stoic exterior, he was not

“immune” to the emotion shown by victims’ families. “He was affected by it,” Carney said. Several family members implored Bulger to face them while they spoke. He refused, but did turn his head slightly to glance at two people. One was Steve Davis, the brother of Debra Davis, the 26-year-old girlfriend of Bulger’s former partner, Stephen “The Rifleman” Flemmi. A federal jury convicted Bulger in August in a racketeering indictment that included murder, extortion, money-laundering and weapons charges. The jury convicted Bulger in 11 out of the 19 killings he was charged with participating in during the 1970s and ‘80s but acquitted him of seven killings and issued a “no finding” in Davis’ murder. Flemmi testified that Bulger strangled Davis, but his testimony was contradicted by another Bulger associate who said Flemmi once said he himself had “accidentally” strangled Davis. “I hope Whitey dies the same way my sister did — gasping for breath as he takes his last breath,” said Steve Davis. Prosecutor Brian Kelly said Bulger has been getting arrested since Harry Truman was president and called him “a little sociopath.” “The carnage that he has caused is grotesque,” Kelly said. “The victims in this case will never be able to regain what he has taken from them, but hopefully they will be able to take some solace from the fact that he will spend the rest of his miserable life in jail,” he said.

Not so fast: Obama’s health care law is changing By Nancy Benac WASHINGTON (AP) — Just when you thought you had the president’s health care law figured out, it’s changing. Some questions and answers about what’s afoot and who’s affected: Q: What’s the nub of the change, and why is President Barack Obama changing course at this late date? A: The president is letting insurance companies offer people another year of coverage under their existing plans even if those plans don’t meet the requirements set out in his health care overhaul law. He’s doing so because of mounting frustration — even anger — over the millions of cancellation notices that have been going out to Americans

whose plans don’t measure up to the law’s coverage standards. Q: Problem solved? A: Not so fast. Obama’s so-called fix doesn’t force insurance companies to do anything. It just gives them the option of extending old plans for existing customers in the individual market, and only if state insurance commissioners also give their OK. Q: Sounds like a no-brainer. Why wouldn’t insurance companies let people re-up? A: The companies aren’t happy about being thrown a curve ball after they’ve already firmed up 2014 rates and plans. It will take a while to see how many of them agree to reinstate old plans for another year — and at what price. Q: What’s the early word? A: Most companies and state insurance commissioners say they need time to study the changes before making a commitment. Aetna Inc., the nation’s third largest health insurer, said it plans to extend some of its canceled policies. Washington state’s insurance commissioner said he won’t allow insurance companies there to extend the old policies. He said people can get better coverage on the new health care exchange. Q: Why not force insurance companies to extend those old policies, not just give them that option? A: That’s a more radical step. Some Democrats want that to happen but it almost certainly would require legislation from Congress — not just a presidential decision — and Republicans would object to such a stiff new requirement on the insurance industry. More steps may be required, though, to restore coverage for people losing it. Q: The changes mainly affect the 5 percent of people who get their own insurance policies through the individual market. What’s the big deal? A: In a country of more than 300 million people, 5 percent is a big number. Roughly 14 million people buy their own policies, and many of those plans are not just junk insurance, contrary to what White House officials suggest. Already, more than 4 million people have gotten cancellation notices. And some small businesses are losing coverage for their workers too.

In My Corner By Arden Chaffee The cultural district plan proposed by its steering committee has several key elements aimed at making Alva a more user-friendly community. One such is the joining of the university campus with the downtown by installing a “white way” of lights lining College Avenue. Already a thoroughfare by virtue of the walking/biking trail, a downtown passage would be a nice touch. Bike racks such as one proposed at Graceful Arts, Alva Public Library, City Hall and a bike lane marked around the square would promote healthy living, energy savings and reduced pollution. Since center-of-the-street parking was nixed by the council, a bike lane in that area makes sense. Walking and biking

are both low-impact exercise and with the new sidewalks I’d also like to propose a drinking fountain available for “square walkers.” If the county commissioners would be so kind as to provide handicapped-accessible restrooms in the building on the west of their property, that would work well. The courthouse lawn continues to be popular year round and the center of downtown retail resurgence. Controversial but offering tangible benefits for our community would be the proposed “cart law.” In spite of restrictions upheld by the Street and Alley Committee, I’m now seeing state licensed ATVs multiplying in use. There are tangible benefits to allowing licensed golf carts in the downtown. In referring to Peachtree, Ga., Derek Prall says, “In addition to relieving congestion, there is also a sense of community here unlike anywhere else.” That alone is reason for reconsideration.

Random Thoughts

A golfing story, Part 1 By Roger Hardaway When I was a child I tried to play every sport there was. The only one I mastered to any degree was baseball. One of those I did not become proficient at was golf. One thing about golf is that it is expensive and not easily accessible to the average child. In my home town the only people who played it were those who belonged to the local country club. That changed as I was approaching adulthood. Someone built a rather crude (but public) nine-hole course. Some of my buddies and I began frequenting it on weekends. We couldn’t afford to buy clubs, so we had to rent used ones from the course owners. Likewise, paying for lessons that might have helped our performance some was beyond our limited financial means. We just went out on the course and hit the ball around until – finally! – it went into the hole. I know for a fact that I never made a par

score on any hole I ever played! For anyone who might not know, par on a golf hole is the number of strokes that a player is expected to take to get the ball from the tee into the cup. Par for 18-hole courses is usually 70-72 strokes, with 72 – it seems to me – being the most typical. That would, of course, equal four strokes per hole. Now surely everyone reading this knows that one of the most sought-after but elusive accomplishments for any golfer is to get a “holein-one.” That is, to put the ball into the cup with only one stroke. To say that getting a hole-in-one is a rarity would be an understatement. Such a feat takes not only some skill but an incredible amount of luck. Moreover, all par-5 and most par-4 holes are too “long” for anyone to hit a ball that far. Thus, almost all “holes-in-one” occur on the shorter, par-3 holes. Next week, in part 2 of this story, I’ll tell you about a guy who recently made a little “hole-inone” history.

Running out of room The reasoning behind Dear Annie: My wife and I have been married for 30 years. When our oldest son left for college, my wife began using his bedroom for storage. It gradually filled with clothes, papers and things my wife bought from TV shopping shows. Soon, there was barely a path to the bed. It happened again when our second child left. Now both bedrooms are jammed so full that you can barely open the doors. Our attic is overflowing, and we rent two storage spaces. My wife is now stacking stuff in our bedroom. I cannot get her to sort through things. She says she will do it “when the weather is better” or “when I have time,” but she never does. I fear my wife has some form of OCD. I am considering tossing stuff myself the next time she takes a trip to visit one of our children. If I throw away the junk, how will she react? I cannot live like this. – Drowning in Junk Dear Drowning: Your wife is a hoarder. It’s possible this was kicked into high gear by the stress of her children leaving the nest, but if it is getting progressively worse, she needs to seek treatment. However, unless she agrees to it beforehand, we don’t recommend you toss things out while she is away. Instead, call your doctor and ask for a referral to a mental health specialist. You also can contact the International OCD Foundation (ocfoundation.org) for more information.

Dear Annie: For some reason, it has become common for people to bring their dogs when visiting, even if the visit is for as little as an hour. Some people won’t come if they cannot bring the dog. Please print my list of what not to do when visiting with your dog: 1. Do not allow your dog to jump on my furniture. 2. If your dog does his business outside, clean up his mess. 3. Do not let your dog eat off of my china or snatch food from the table. 4. Do not expect me to put my cats outside because they do not get along with your dog. 5. If your dog is outside, do not let him scratch at my door or windows. 6. Just because I permit you to bring your dog, do not assume it is because I really like the animal. It is solely because I value your friendship more than I dislike your dog. I never let my children misbehave at someone’s house, and I expect your dogs to behave equally well. I used to have dogs, but I would never dream of taking them to someone else’s home unless specifically invited to do so. – Anonymous Dear Anonymous: Some folks consider their animal companions to be their “children” and expect others to treat them accordingly. But this is an unwarranted assumption. It is important to first ask whether it is OK to bring a pet,

Dear Margo

and if the answer is “no,” respond graciously and make other arrangements. Dear Annie: You recently published a letter from “A Lucky and Appreciative Married Man” and suggested that any reader who wanted to give the impression that they wrote it do so. My husband circled the column and left it out for me to see with a handwritten note saying he didn’t write it but “should have.” It made me stop to appreciate that he really means it when he frequently tells me how lucky he is. We’ve been together for “only” 25 years, and it has been more than wonderful. The trials and tribulations have been nothing compared to the good times and memories. I hope the next 25 years don’t go by as fast. It takes two to make a relationship work. As the wife of another lucky man, I am fortunate to have such a great partner in this life. – Staatsburg, N.Y.

By Tom and Ray Magliozzi Dear Tom and Ray: General Motors recently unveiled the 2015 Chevy Tahoe, Suburban and GMC Yukon. The three SUVs continue to have the gear shifter positioned on the steering column instead of the floor-mounted center console, like the Traverse, Equinox and Acadia. Is this solely a cosmetic design decision, or is there an automotive engineering reason for this choice? Thanks. – Bob TOM: It’s partially cosmetic, partially historic and partially practical. RAY: The practical reason is that putting the shifter on the steering column leaves more room for a large center console between the seats. People like to use center consoles to store all their stuff. TOM: Not just cups of coffee and quarters for parking, but, increasingly, purses, bags of Cheetos, laptop computers and the occasional medium-size household pet. RAY: And some of these center consoles – like the Suburban’s – have gotten so big that you can rest your lunch tray on top of it and stash a backup Chevy Spark inside for when you’re tired of getting 16 miles to the gallon. TOM: Putting the shifter on the steering column also gives Chevy the option of offering a bench seat up front instead of two bucket seats. A bench seat – with the proper seat he’s up to unless he wanted it re- belts and all – allows three people layed to me. My relationship with Luella goes back 14 years. What is the best way (if any) to tell my friend what is going on? – Hating the Drama Dear Hate: This is a common dilemma, with no real consensus. Some believe that “time reveals all,” and because people often get mad at the messenger, it’s better not to be the bearer of bad news. I probably am in favor of alerting your close friend that she’s being played for a fool and her husband is a louse. Especially since you say Sam is preparing to leave this woman – he is not just stepping out on her – offering a heads-up would at least afford her the pleasure, if that’s the word, of dumping him first. If watching your friend’s back could jeopardize the relationship, then maybe it’s not all you thought it was. Good luck. – Margo, delicately Dear Margo is written by Margo Howard, Ann Landers’ daughter. To learn more about Margo Howard or to read features by other writers, visit creators.com.

When a hug brings an ugh Dear Margo: I have a problem that I hope you may be able to help me with. I don’t want to be someone who perpetuates any stereotypes or creates new ones, but the fact remains that most (not all) Asians are uncomfortable with the physical contact Westerners are used to. I’m talking about our different ways of greeting. I mean we just bow when we greet one another. We don’t hug and kiss as American and French people do. Although I myself was born in America, my parents were not, and I have grown up with their customs. I just feel like I’m being hug-raped whenever I have to put up with it. It wasn’t much of a predicament because I’ve only had to endure this discomfort very occasionally, but the problem now is my boyfriend’s family. Although they’re Asian, too, they’ve been in America generations longer than my own family, so they hug whenever they see each other – and now me. To make matters worse, it’s a big family, and when I’m invited to a gathering (which is often . . . they celebrate everything), I have to hug as many as 8-10 times in an hour. I feel uncomfortable and have a hard time keeping myself from grimacing. I don’t want to straight out tell them that I don’t feel comfortable with hugging because I don’t want to be seen as the strange girl who doesn’t like to touch people, but is there any way I can discreetly let them know that I’m not the hugging type, or is it too late since I’ve gone along with it? – Hug-Me-Not Dear Hug: I’m with you, and I’m not even Asian. In the same way

that people say brown is the new black, I think hugging is the new handshake. (I am not talking about hugging within families, but we will get to that in a minute.) I have had people I barely knew hug me, and the inappropriate familiarity always makes me rigid with unease. (I remember a workman in my mother’s apartment said to her, “May I hug you?” And she said, “No.”) In general, people ought to dial it back a little and save a hug for when it means something. As for your situation, I think it would be fine for you to “teach” your boyfriend’s family how to show affection your way. There is no reason they can’t do the little bow, especially if you tell them it is a part of your tradition that you particularly like. – Margo, comfortably Dear Margo: I’m presently being faced with a situation I feel could jeopardize my relationship with my best friend, “Luella,” and my fiance, “Igor.” Igor and Luella’s husband, “Sam,” work at the same company together. That is how I was introduced to Igor. My guy has stated on several occasions that Sam is going to leave Luella. He lies to her about when he gets off work and what he is doing, and with whom. Igor finally had to tell Sam that he could no longer tell Igor what

Changing

some people who got cancellations run the risk of having a break in coverage. The health care law was supposed to reduce the number of uninsured people, not increase it. Q: So people who successfully make the switch to the new insurance marketplaces can rest easy? A: Not really. If lots of healthy people who get cheaper insurance through the individual market end up keeping that coverage instead of switching to the more robust plans offered through “Obamacare,” that could weaken the financial footing of plans offered by the insurance marketplaces. Q: How so? A: People with current plans are a known risk to insurers. At some point, they all had to pass the stiff medical screening that the law forbids starting next year. Insurers were counting on premiums from those with current individual plans to help balance out the cost of care for people who have been shut out of the system, and who represent a potentially high risk. To the extent that healthier people stay out of the new insurance pool being created under the law, that would raise costs. Q: What would happen then?

A: You guessed it: higher rates, potentially. Premiums for 2014 are set; where the increases would show up is in premiums for 2015. In a letter to state insurance commissioners Thursday, the Obama administration referred to the risk of “unanticipated changes in premium revenue.” It promised to provide assistance through other provisions of the health care law. Q: I get my insurance through my job. Sounds like I don’t need to worry. A: The vast majority of people with employer-based plans shouldn’t be affected by the changes announced by Obama. Q: The health care law was signed into law in 2010. Why is this issue coming up at the last minute? A: The Obama administration miscalculated — big time — how many people would lose coverage in the transition to the new health insurance marketplace. It specified that people who had plans before the law took effect could hang on to those plans. But it didn’t anticipate the big wave of cancellations among people who had plans that changed after the law took effect or who bought new plans after the law kicked in. Q: The president says “this fix”

won’t solve every problem and that doing more will require working with Congress. What else needs to be done? And is there any hope of Obama and the Congress agreeing on changes? A: Before Washington became so politically polarized, major legislation was usually followed within a year or two by a “technical corrections” bill that addressed inevitable unintended consequences and shortcomings. A bill as massive as the Affordable Care Act has many such issues, which the administration has tried to address through regulations, “guidance” and other administrative steps. For example, the White House last summer delayed the law’s employer coverage requirement by one year to allow more time to work out regulatory issues. Obama seems to be yearning for a return to earlier days, but Republicans are so adamant in opposing the health care law that it seems far from likely. *** Associated Press writer Ricardo Alonso-Zaldivar contributed to this report. *** Follow Benac on Twitter at http://www.twitter.com/nbenac

Rangers host the Bulldogs for senior night

By Leslie Nation No one can deny it has been a long season for the Northwestern Oklahoma State football team this year, but the season is not over. With one game left to go before the off-season, the Rangers return home for senior night to face Southwestern Oklahoma State University (SWOSU) (5-5, 5-4 in GAC) in a rivalry matchup. This longtime in-state rivalry between SWOSU and Northwestern dates back to 1907, and they meet for the 80th time with the Bulldogs holding the most wins (48-27-4) in the series. Though these two teams have a longstanding tradition together, SWOSU and Northwestern have met just three times since the Bulldogs reclassified to NCAA Division II before the 1997 season. Since the Rangers have only recently transitioned to Division II and the Great American Conference (GAC) their rivalry can finally be renewed to an annual basis. The Bulldogs have won the last five meetings in the series with the last two games being played in Alva. Those games were close on the scoreboards though, showing SWOSU winning by 29-15 in 2008 and 31-28 in 2011. In their last meeting, SWOSU dispatched the Rangers with a 3128 victory in Alva at Ranger Stadium. Despite the five wins, the Bulldogs have put on a “yo-yo” performance throughout the season, winning every other game. If they stay true to that standard, they’re due for their sixth win against the Rangers after their 49-32 defeat against Tarleton State last Saturday. On offense for the Bulldogs,

starting quarterback Dustin Stenta (#5) will be a dominant force. With 209 completions out of 359 passes, Stenta has thrown for 2,731 yards 23 touchdowns and 10 interceptions. With starting quarterback for Northwestern Reid Miller out for the rest of the season, the Rangers will have to depend on the inexperienced arm of L.T. Pfaff (#14), who has completed 54-96 for four touchdowns, three interceptions and 671 yards. For SWOSU’s running game, they’ll depend on the ground assault by runningbacks D.C. Walker (#20) and Karl Hodge (#33). Walker has carried the ball 157 times for 627 yards and two touchdowns while Hodge ran for 572 yards off of 133 attempts for one touchdown. Top receivers that Stenta has focused on are tight-end Ryan Corbin (#44), who has made 67 grabs for 809 yards and six touchdowns; Teverick Boyd (#3), with 45 receptions for 566 yards and five touchdowns; Brad Smithey (#81), catching for 408 yards and three touchdowns off of 37 catches; and M.J. Porter (#87) and Brian Robinson (#2), with a combined total of 35 receptions 695 yards and seven touchdowns. Though the Bulldogs have the advantage in this rivalry series, the Rangers are coming off of their biggest win since entering into the GAC with their 62-17 dominating performance against Southern Nazarene University (SNU). Granted, the SNU team does not really compare on paper to SWOSU’s, but with home-field advantage that momentum could give Northwestern an edge for senior night and improve their record to 3-8 for their second season in the GAC.

Rangers struggle to 3-0 defeat NWOSU Sports Information BETHANY – Northwestern Oklahoma State struggled through a tough three-set loss to Southern Nazarene University (SNU) – 2025, 15-25, 17-25 – in its final Great American Conference (GAC) volleyball match of the year. Asia Pipkin led the Rangers with eight kills, while Hayley Brattain had seven put-aways and hit .353 for the match. Megan Hentschke was one of three Northwestern players with double-digit digs, finishing with 17 to go with 11 from Tiana Barnett and 10 from Korina Lillard. Barnett also tallied 24 assists. After starting off in a 14-9 early hole, the Rangers fought back to within a point. Lillard and Brattain each had a pair of kills as part of a 4-1 Northwestern run that made it a

17-16 game. However, SNU put a stop to that momentum by winning four of the next five points to finish out the set. SNU (21-9, 11-2 GAC) kept the pressure on in the second, building a 7-2 lead, and things continued to snowball. The Rangers won just two of their 15 service points in the set (an incredible sideout percentage of 86 percent for SNU). After dropping the second set by double-figures, the Rangers hit a season-worst .097 in the third with eight errors against only five kills. Northwestern (5-24, 2-12 GAC) will finish out the season with a pair of home matches later this week. The Rangers will observe senior night at 7 p.m. on Thursday against Newman with an encore performance at 5 p.m. on Friday against University of Central Oklahoma.

Second half rally gives Cameron a victory over the Rangers By Leslie Nation In the Northwestern Oklahoman State Rangers men’s basketball season opener against Rogers State, both teams struggled throughout the night coming out with a low scoring game. But a win is a win, and the Rangers led Rogers State 50-42. “We’re not going to be able to play like that probably anymore this year and be able to win,” said Rangers’ head coach Adam Brown after that game. Coach Brown went on to state that they had a short amount of time to prepare for the Cameron Aggies on Wednesday. The biggest lead for Northwestern was early in the game when T’aries Taylor hit back-to-back threes to put the Rangers up 10-5 with 15:12 left in the first half. This was plenty of time for Aggies’ Kimric Dixon to hit his own consecutive triples to make it a one-point lead for Cameron, which they kept for the rest of the game. Cameron built its lead to 24-14 with 5:59 to play in the first half before the Rangers could come back with any meaningful response. Adrian Motley hit a jumper and one

to make a three-point play before coming back down the court to slam the ball home and put Northwestern within five of the Aggies’ lead. Laakeem Henderson was there with the assist to find Motley for the easy two and make it a 24-19 game. Easy two-point buckets from Bruce Wright, Henderson and Motley closed the gap to 28-27 with over 1:30 left to go in the half. But a foul by Ryan Radcliff gave Aggies’ Craig Foster the opportunity to make it a three-point game going into the second half. In the second half, the Rangers were able to keep up with the Aggies for the first three minutes of the game, still trailing by only five before things turned sour for Northwestern. The Rangers left the window open for the Aggies to take advantage and go on a 7-23 spurt to lead Northwestern 38-60 with a little over 10 minutes to go in the game. In the final 11 minutes, the Rangers found a rhythm to put up 31 points, but it wasn’t enough to overcome Cameron as they went on to win 84-64. Motley led Northwestern, scoring 20 points and grabbing six rebounds off the boards. T’aries

Taylor was the only other Ranger in double figures with 16 points. Wright finished with eight points and nine rebounds. Sophomore Laakeem Henderson put up a career high of four assists, and Radcliff added three of his own. Northwestern turned it over just five times while forcing Cameron to 11. Aggies Kimric Dixon scored a game high of 22-points, and Desmond Henry and Will Cook put up 15 each. This loss ruined a four-game winning streak at home for the Rangers, which suffered its second Percefull Fieldhouse loss since November of last year. Cameron finished at 53.8 percent while holding Northwestern to 31.8. Cameron overpowered the Rangers – playing without center Jess Smith – at the boards as the Aggies out-rebounded them 43-29. Foster was the key for the Aggies’ charge in the second half, adding 11 more points to finish the night with 13. The Rangers host their third straight home game with Fort Hays State on Saturday evening beginning approximately at 8 p.m.

Christian Heritage to host the Goldbugs in round one of Class 2A playoffs By Leslie Nation The Goldbugs football team may not be hosting round one of Class 2A playoffs, but their chances on moving on after tonight are not zero. Alva will face the Christian Heritage Crusaders (7-3, 5-1 District 2A-2) on the road at 7:30 p.m. Alva challenges a fairly balanced opponent in the Crusaders, who average 158.9 yards rushing and 213.2 yards passing a game. So averaging about 372 yards on total offense is all well and good for Christian Heritage, but with a defense that allows about 356 yards a game, the Goldbugs’ offense should not be slowed down here. The Crusaders won’t make it easy for Alva, however. With home-field advantage and coming

off five straight wins – the last one a 42-7 victory over Stroud – the Crusaders should make this a tough battle, depending on who hits their stride first. Alva was gunning for their sixth straight win against Hennessey, but now they have to battle from a 20-12 defeat that could have easily gone the other way for the Goldbugs. In last week’s game against the Hennessey Eagles, it was a battle between a ground assault and team throwing bombs from the air. Alva had 280 in passing yardage with only 14 yards off 10 carries on the ground, but on the other side of the ball the Eagles had 365 rushing yards and only 42 yards thrown. Unfortunately, what cost Alva the game were precision passes by Ty Hooper being dropped by his key

receivers. Though the game was even for the most part, squandered key moments hurt the Goldbugs and Hennessey took advantage of that. But it’s a new game and a clean slate for Alva as they face the Crusaders, although there are still some key players from their opponent that they should look out for. Starting quarterback has been senior Colton Lindsey (#16), who has thrown the ball 159 times for 108 completions, 1,364 yards with 13 touchdowns and only four picks. C. Lindsey has also been a threat on the ground, carrying the ball 58 times for 445 yards and 10 touchdowns. The Crusaders have a backup quarterback in junior

Lady Rangers fall in first home From Page 8 Goldbugs game against Fort Hays By Leslie Nation The Northwestern Oklahoma State Lady Rangers basketball team was off to a 0-2 start in their 2013-14 season after facing Colorado-Mesa and Colorado Christian in Weatherford, which they lost 42-60 and 63-68 respectively. On Wednesday, the Lady Rangers faced Fort Hays State at their first home game in Percefull Fieldhouse at 6 p.m. hoping to end their drought. The Lady Tigers were off to a 6-0 run in the first half before the Rangers scored their first point. Micaela Yu hit a short jumper for a two and Jonae Isaac put up a threepointer to make it a one-point and a lot of time left. The Tigers put on an 8-19 run to put a sizable distance between them and the Rangers, but with a little over six minutes left to go in the half Northwestern battled back. The Lady Rangers went 19-13 in the next six minutes to come within 11 points of Fort Hays at the end of the half. In the second half, it was Fort Hays all the way as they put on a huge eight-point burst before the Rangers could get on the board with less than 16 minutes left in the game. The Tigers did not let up pushing Northwestern through their paces going on a 6-24 run before the Rangers could find a rhythm putting the Tiger ups 41-77 with 9:09 left. Even though Northwestern was able to come up with some responses, Fort Hays’ lead was too much to overcome and the Tigers won 94- Kayleigh Crow (#20) makes a fast break down the court with Katelyn Edwards (#12) and Chelsea Mason (#11) of the Fort Hays State See L.

Spencer Lindsey (#14) to share the burden. S. Lindsey has completed 55-of-99 for the season with 761 yards, four touchdowns and five interceptions. For the running game, Christian Heritage relies on the capable legs of Joseph Lemieux (#7). Lemieux has run the ball for 880 yards on 167 carries, averaging close to 90 yards a game and 13 total touchdowns. The only other players the Goldbugs may see rushing from the backfield are seniors Micah Wilson (#33) and Samuel Melton (#88), their fullback. The two have ran for a combined total of 229 yards off 44 attempts for six touchdowns. C. Lindsey has several capable hands to throw to, but his go-tos

have been Braden Mikes (#8) and Dallas Myers (#20) each with 426 receiving yards with five touchdowns caught by Mikes. Other receivers for the Crusaders are Gabe LittleJim (#44), who has caught the ball 14 times for 358 yards and four touchdowns; Dillon East (#21), who made 23 grabs for 270 yards; A.J. Ferguson (#85), who has caught 15 times for 225 yards; and Nathan Sosa (#80), who has caught for 114 yards and three touchdowns on nine receptions. These are players for Alva to watch out for but this is a team that the Goldbugs match well for round one of the playoffs. Only time will tell who will move on to face Frederick or Davis in round two.

Attorneys argue over Okla. Bartlesville man sentenced for grandmother’s death workers’ comp lawsuit By Tim Talley OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Oklahoma’s new workers’ compensation law violates the state Constitution in several ways and should be struck down, an attorney for two state lawmakers and a firefighter’s organization told a state Supreme Court referee Thursday. “There are some very, very disturbing aspects,” Oklahoma City attorney John McMurry said during oral arguments before referee Greg Albert. “There is a lot before the court in this particular case.” Among other things, McMurry said the law unconstitutionally delegates legislative powers and amounts to unconstitutional logrolling, or combining multiple subjects into one bill. But Oklahoma Solicitor General Patrick Wyrick and an attorney for business groups defended the law, saying it should be given a chance to work. “The common theme is apparent here. ... How are we going to handle workers’ compensation cases?” said attorney Robert McCampbell, who represents The State Chamber, the Greater Oklahoma City Chamber of Commerce and the Tulsa Regional Chamber of Commerce. Albert said he planned to condense the attorney’s arguments into a report he will present to the state’s

highest court next week. He said the court could decide whether to take up the case before the end of the month. Legislation to overhaul the state’s workers’ compensation system was signed into law by Republican Gov. Mary Fallin in May. It was a top priority for Republican leaders who say the state’s previous system was a detriment to business and industry in the state. Among other things, the law changes Oklahoma’s court-based system to an administrative one. Supporters say the change will dramatically reduce workers’ compensation costs to businesses, but opponents have said any cost savings will come at the expense of injured workers. The new law was challenged in a lawsuit filed in September by state Sen. Harry Coates, R-Seminole, Rep. Emily Virgin, D-Norman, and the Professional Firefighters of Oklahoma and its president, Rick Beams. McMurry said the lawsuit is not an attack on the Legislature’s attempt to transform Oklahoma’s workers’ compensation system into an administrative system. McCampbell said 47 other states have similar administrative systems. Instead, the lawsuit attacks vari-

ous provisions of the law, including those it says would deny treatment and compensation to injured workers under certain circumstances. The law would allow the use of American Medical Association guides and Work Loss Data Institute Official Disability Guidelines in workers’ compensation cases, which McMurry said is an unconstitutional delegation of legislative powers. The lawsuit also attacks provisions of the law that McMurry said would unconstitutionally delay an injured worker’s access to the state’s courts to seek compensation and that would allow employers to “opt-out” of the administrative system and create their own benefit plan for injured workers. Wyrick said the law does not bar access to the courts but requires that injured workers seek administrative remedies first. “Every litigant gets their day in court,” he said. McCampbell said the state’s largest chambers of commerce support the law and believe it should be upheld. However, if the Supreme Court finds that parts of it are unconstitutional, McCampbell urged the court to strike down only those provisions rather than invalidating the entire law.

BARTLESVILLE, Okla. (AP) — A Bartlesville man has been sentenced to life in prison for the beating death of his grandmother. Judge Curtis DeLapp followed a jury’s recommendation when he handed down the sentence Wednesday for 21-year-old Brandon Capps. Prosecutors say Capps killed his grandmother, 81-year-old Clara Jean Hammer, in October 2012. A jury convicted Capps of first-

Man killed in Midwest City home, woman arrested MIDWEST CITY, Okla. (AP) — Police in Midwest City say a man was found shot to death in a home on the city’s northeast side and a woman has been arrested. Police Chief Brandon Clabes says the woman called 911 about 11:15 a.m. Wednesday from a convenience store and said she had shot

and several employees. KU spokeswoman Jill Jess said in an email that Moore’s claims “are baseless.” Moore alleges the university inappropriately charged administration, overhead and related expenses to the lab that did not comply with federal rules for spending grant money. He also contends the university discriminated against him as a disabled person suffering attention deficit disorder. Moore seeks his reinstatement as laboratory director along with back pay, damages and attorney’s fees. His attorney, Daniel Cofran, said in an email that this lawsuit is limited to claims under state law for wrongful suspension and termination. Additional claims will be filed with federal and state agencies for violating whistleblowing and disability discrimination laws, he said. Moore was appointed in 2005

as assistant scientist and director of the university’s microscopy analysis and imaging laboratory, one of eleven core labs at the university, according to the complaint. He was first hired as a research assistant in 1996. He contends in the lawsuit that after his appointment as lab director he became increasingly concerned about the financial management of the lab. Billing practices resulted in uncollected revenues for the use of the lab’s electron microscope or were charged to the federal grants of other researchers. His lawsuit comes just two weeks after longtime professor Curtis Klaassen filed an unrelated lawsuit in federal court in Kansas against the university and its School of Medicine, also claiming the university retaliated against him for his assertion that the school misappropriated federal research grants.

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Oklahoma will ask the U.S. Supreme Court to review the state’s lawsuit challenging the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s rules regarding regional haze, state Attorney General Scott Pruitt told a congressional committee in Washington on Thursday. Pruitt testified before a House subcommittee on energy and power that is overseeing EPA’s proposed new greenhouse gas rules that affect electricity generation. “At stake is the ability of Oklahoma and other states to develop and implement state-based solutions. The EPA exceeded its authority when it denied the state’s plan to address regional haze,” Pruitt said. “Oklahomans need to understand the regional haze rule is not about health, it is about visibility in a state

Kan. man charged in Mo. with smuggling fake Botox  KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — A federal grand jury has indicted a central Kansas man on charges that he worked with an Alton, Ill., company and its owner in a $3 million scheme to sell foreign versions of Botox and Juvederm. The U.S. attorney’s office in Kansas City, Mo., says 43-year-

old Christopher Tozier of Hesston, Kan., was charged Thursday with smuggling goods into the U.S. and several other similar counts. The superseding indictment adding Tozier replaces an indictment in April that charged Illinois-based Orthopaedic Solutions Inc. and its owner, 48-year-old

Christopher Carstens, with similar counts. The superseding indictment alleges that Carstens and his company distributed nearly 5,900 units of foreign versions of Botox and Juvederm in the U.S. between 2008 and 2011 with a retail value of more than $3 million.
