Health, fellowship is focus in Tai Chi class challenge to visa lottery thrown out

By Kevin Kerr

In 2009, Louise Jones suffered a stroke and lost much of her left side mobility. But thanks to the Carter County Health Department’s Tai Chi class, no one would be the wiser. Tai Chi, an ancient Chinese martial art, focuses on smooth, slow motions designed for defense, but used many times for health benefits. It’s these health benefits that have helped Jones’ health and physical strength progress, and has benefited her fellow classmates as well. The class, which also includes

MURRAY COUNTY — Rough, rocky terrain hampered firefighters’ efforts to quash a wildland fire in the Arbuckle Mountains Thursday. Sources said firefighters suspected lightening strikes Wednesday night caused the two separate blazes that ignited on the Chapman Ranch. About 7:30 p.m. Thursday the fire reportedly raged three to four miles east of U.S. Highway 77 and two miles south of Falls Creek Camp, located near Turner Falls. One of the fires had consumed approximately 300 acres, while the other blaze had seared an estimated 1200 acres. fire, PAGE 5A

“She’s probably in the best shape out of all of us,” Mantzke said. All of these women joined the class for a variety of reasons. Bishop joined for simple health reasons, but also said she has issues with her feet. “The great thing about this class is you can do it sitting down if you want,” Bishop said. “I can’t always stay standing the whole time, but I can still participate in this.” Mantzke had shoulder surgery several years ago, and while looking for a rehabilitation program, came across the Tai Chi class.

Norma Mantzke, Virginia “Ginger” Bishop and Margie Black, has completed their scheduled 12-week course. But they’ve decided they wanted to continue Tai Chi classes because of the benefits it has given them. “I can move my shoulders a lot better,” Mantzke said, “and I have a lot more flexibility in what I do.” To add to their amazing story, all of these women are over 65 years old. The youngest at 69, Jones said she’s probably gained the most from the class, while the oldest, Black, 85, continues to work just as hard as the rest of the class.

Tracy Johnson, 39, was sentenced to 25-years after pleading guilty to the charge of soliciting a minor for indecent exposure/obscene material Thursday in Carter County District Court.

Lieutenant Governor Todd Lamb visits the Ardmore Convention Center and speaks to area legislators and Ardmore Chamber of Commerce representatives Thursday. DON ALQUIST/THE

Lt. Gov. Todd Lamb was in Ardmore Thursday to meet with area legislators and Ardmore Chamber of Commerce representatives. His visit included a tour of the Ardmore Convention Center and Lake Murray State Park. “Today is a listening and learning day for me,” he said. The lieutenant governor serves as the president of the Oklahoma State Senate, where he can cast tie breaking votes. Lamb presides over or is a member of several state boards and commissions, including the Oklahoma Tourism and Recreation Commission, the Oklahoma Film and Music Advisory Commission, the Native American Cultural and Educational Authority, the CompSource Oklahoma Board of Managers, the State Board of Equalization, the Commissioners Of The Land

Office (School Land Trust), the Oklahoma Capitol Improvement Authority, the Oklahoma Linked Deposit Review Board and the Oklahoma Archives and Records Commission. He is also vice president of the Aerospace States Association, a national organization of lieutenant governors and state leaders who represent their states’ interests in federal aerospace and aviation policy. Lamb said he has been actively promoting Oklahoma to encourage businesses to bring new jobs to the state as well as to support those business and industries that are already here. “I’m passionate about economic development,” he said. For example, Lamb recently hosted a visit by Dr. John Dardis, Ireland’s first secretary of agriculture, to explore possible economic development and agriculture research opportunities between Oklahoma and Ireland.

Bobby Gene Guthary

Gary Lee Allen

Bobby Gene Guthary, 83, was born November 13, 1927, in Gentry, Arkansas; he died July 11, 2011, in a Tulsa, Oklahoma, hospital after a brief battle with cancer. The son of Andrew McClinton Guthary and Mary Margie Leach Guthary, Bob was just a small town Arkansas country boy. He graduated from Gentry High School and then set out to see the world by joining the U.S. Coast Guard, serving from 1946 through 1949 and making lots of good memories. Following his marriage to Arline Louella Yocham January 8, 1950, Bob began work in earnest on his social work degree from the University of Arkansas. After graduation, he worked in Child Welfare/Protective Services in Searcy, Arkansas, and later moved to Corpus Christi, Texas, where he counseled juveniles. The majority of his career was in Ardmore, where he dedicated his service to the Bureau of Indian Affairs from 1958 to 1984. He completed his master’s degree in Social Work from the University of Oklahoma in 1968 and continued to give wisdom, care and support to his Chickasaw, Choctaw and other Native American friends. Although Bob officially retired in 1984, he was always interested in the well-being of others. Bob dedicated his career and personal time to helping others. One of his pet projects was Cross Point Methodist Church Camp. He spent many weekends painting, trimming trees, roofing, falling off ladders and visiting with his work buddies there. Bob’s pride and joy every year was always his garden. His summer days were full of rototilling, planting, harvesting and sharing his garden’s bounty. He found his peace fishing on the White River, camping in the Ozarks or just sitting on Hickory Creek. Bob never met a stranger, meeting new people with familiarity and compassion. If you ever spent any time with Bob, you heard his “Woo Pig Sooey” in support of his Razorbacks. He was always available for corny jokes, intelligent conversation, crossword puzzles, hugs or advice. His favorite times were walks in the neighborhood greeting neighbors and showing his grandchildren the wonders of nature. He touched all

Funeral services for Gary Lee Allen will be today at 10 a.m. at the Craddock Memorial Chapel with Rev. Stephen Harris officiating. Interment will follow at Rose Hill Cemetery.

Wagner were married at Gainesville, Texas, on March 9, 1970. Gary has lived in this area the past 20 years. He proudly served in the Army at Vietnam and was a supervisor and mechanic at General Motors. He enjoyed Skywarn, S.E.T.I., fishing, metal detecting and coin collecting. He

OKLAHOMA CITY — As drought conditions continue to worsen across the state, Gov. Mary Fallin has issued an Executive Proclamation banning outdoor burning for much of the state. Oklahoma Forestry Services, a division of the Oklahoma Department of Agriculture, Food and Forestry, recommended the ban based upon an analysis of fire activity, wildland fuel conditions and the predicted continued drought. The Governor’s Burn Ban covers 45 counties in western and south-central Oklahoma (including Carter, Jefferson, Johnston, Murray, Marshall and Love counties).    Unlawful activities under the ban include campfires, bonfires, and setting fire to any forest, grass, woods, wildlands or marshes, as well as igniting fireworks, burning trash or other materials outdoors.  As part of the Governors Burn Ban there are a number of exemptions for activities such as welding and road construction.

Pharmacist sentenced to life plans appeal

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Attorneys for an Oklahoma pharmacist convicted of murder and sentenced to life in prison for the shooting death of a would-be robber have filed a notice they plan to appeal to the state’s Court of Criminal Appeals. Pharmacist Jerome Ersland’s attorney Irven Box filed the notice of appeal on Thursday. Box says he is still reviewing court transcripts to determine the basis for his appeal. Ersland was found guilty of first-degree murder and sentenced to life in prison with the possibility of parole for the 2009 shooting death of a 16-year-old boy during an attempted robbery.

Tai chi Continued from page 1A

“I had been looking for a place to help my shoulder,” Mantzke said, “and when that article (in The Ardmoreite) came out with this class, I said ‘I’m doing that.’” Jones joined after her stroke, and has nearly gained all of her left side mobility back. She said the class works both her body and her mind, which plays a key role in her regaining motion on her left side.

“It’s been wonderful,” she said. “This class has made it to where I can move again. I sit up straight more and I can do the things I need to.” Another part of Tai Chi is remembering all of the motions associated with the martial art. Things like “repulse the monkey” or “pet the wild horse’s mane” fill the repertoire needed to fully take advantage of the class’s health benefits. “You can only ‘hold the ball’ so many times before it gets old,” instructor Janie Pennington-Cagle

said. “These ladies took on all of the motions, and have remembered them real well.” “This class really makes you think, which helps me with my mind,” Jones said. Jones brought Black, her aunt, with her to the class to have a partner, but both have since made new friends in Mantzke, Bishop and the instructors, Pennington-Cagle and Judy Cavnar. In addition to health benefits, the class also proves to be the members’ fellowship activity of

choice. Meeting twice every week, the ladies start their sessions by trading tidbits of information regarding health, cooking, cleaning and any other tricks they might know. “I love coming to this class,” Pennington-Cagle said. “These ladies have been awesome and I learn so much from them every time we come.” The next 12 week Tai Chi class will begin Aug. 2. Anyone is welcome to sign up, regardless of age. Cavnar said late registration will also be taken. When asked how long

the “Fabulous Four” as Pennington-Cagle called them, would continue their class, all of them said they would like to continue as long as they can. “We might even put them in with the next class,” Pennington-Cagle said. “These ladies have a lot to offer, a lot of knowledge and information to share with anyone who takes this class. I think it would be great.” To register for the class, contact the Carter County Health Department at (580)223-9705, or visit 405 S. Washington St.

California Carmageddon


A JOLLA — God bless America, and how’s everybody? Casey Anthony’s lawyers revealed Tuesday she’s considering altering her appearance for her own protection when she gets out of jail in Orlando Sunday. They said she may get plastic surgery and change her name. It’s process known in Los Angeles as getting off the Greyhound bus. Breaking Bad starring Bryan Cranston airs on AMC Sunday. He plays a chemistry teacher with cancer who cooks crystal meth so he can leave his family millions. It’s so popular the Food Network is thinking of having a competition show starring the country’s best meth cooks. Newsweek placed a photo of Sarah Palin on the cover Monday which showed her arching her back in a low-cut sweatshirt. The magazine was ARGUS clearly trying to sabotage the HAMILTON former governor. They used Columnist Photoshop to enhance her breasts and put Nixon’s face on her body. President Obama trailed former president George W. Bush in popularity in a poll taken of Arabs living in the Middle East. It makes sense. The Arabs preferred President Bush because he would always give them a little warning before the bombing began by going to Congress first. The L.A. Times reported that iPhone apps are on sale that produce perfect counterfeit photo IDs and driver’s licenses. It’s alarming. All an Arab terrorist needs is a Mexican ID and not only can he cross freely into Arizona, he gets free health care if he’s wounded in the explosion. Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke signaled an easing of monetary policy Thursday, prompting gold prices to rise to $1,600 an ounce. It’s created a new gold rush. Gang members in California are now shooting each other over control of river bends instead of street corners. The San Diego Freeway in Los Angeles was closed for a 10 mile stretch at Sepulveda Pass all weekend for bridge work. It’s a nightmare for 40 million people. Traffic was so snarled on the freeways by six o’clock this morning that Rodney King was arrested for drunken idling.


A low partscore; high-level defense By Phillip Alder

King Charles I, who ruled England, Ireland and Scotland for nearly 24 years, said, “Never make a defense or an apology until you are accused.” At the bridge table, never make a defense until you have worked through the various options. In this tough deal, you are West, defending against two spades. What would you lead? What do you think of the auction? Starting with the bidding, North was right to respond two spades despite his strong clubs. East wanted to act, but his hand was a tad too light for a competitive double, which would have shown the red suits. South did well not to try for game, because North had a very unsuitable hand. And many players with your cards would have rebid three clubs. Here, though, North would have doubled and probably collected a 200-point penalty. For the opening lead, consider all four suits. Against a trump contract, do not lead from a suit headed by the ace without the king. So scratch off the minors. A trump lead is

unlikely to be killing. That leaves the heart queen. The first trick goes heart queen, four, 10, two. What next? Since you won the trick, partner is marked with the heart ace and king. That gives you five winners: three hearts and both minor-suit aces. But where is trick six? The answer would not occur to many. It is a diamond ruff! Cash the diamond ace before leading your second heart. Then, on the third heart, discard your diamond jack. Partner should then lead a diamond, which you will trump. Finally, you will cash the club ace to defeat the contract.

Traffic on Interstate 405 is seen from the Sherman Oaks Galleria mall parking lot Wednesday in Los Angeles.

California Dire warnings as freeway closure looms

LOS ANGELES — Thousands of doctors and nurses will bunk at hospitals, an emergency operation center will be set up and Southern California residents are being urged to stay home and stock up on food. One major airline offered $4 seats to help people avoid the looming mess, selling out of tickets in three hours. The crisis? A 10-mile stretch of Interstate 405 — a vital artery that links population centers north and south of the Santa Monica Mountains — is shutting down for 53 hours this weekend. The closure, a necessary part of a major highway reconstruction project, is being dubbed “Carmageddon,” evoking images of gridlock, road rage and other traffic nightmares

that it might spawn in car-dependent Southern California. Celebrities are among those sounding the alarm, via Twitter messages urging residents to stay off the road starting at midnight Friday. “This weekend, LA! Avoid Carmageddon, Gas-zilla, 405-enstein, Grid-lock-apalooza! STAY HOME. Eat & shop local,” Tom Hanks tweeted this week. Beyond tongue-in-cheek apocalyptic warnings, city leaders stressed that real public safety concerns exist: Helipads have been cleared for air ambulances and 200 extra firefighters and paramedics will be on duty, some of them positioned along the shuttered freeway to protect fire-prone hillsides in the area. Four big hospitals near the freeway on the city’s west side are setting up cots and putting thousands of doctors, nurses and medical personnel in hotels and dorm rooms so

they don’t show up late to their shifts. The UCLA Health System placed advanced orders for medical supplies and food, even preparing 5,200 box lunches for staff, ahead of the shutdown. It has three helicopter companies on standby to transport patients and human organs in the event of emergency operations. “You can’t take a chance when you deal with patient safety and patient care,” said Dr. Wally Ghurabi, the emergency director of Santa Monica-UCLA Medical Center. He planned to sleep in the E.R. throughout the weekend instead of commuting the 20 miles from his home in Torrance to the hospital. Authorities are hammering the same message to drivers. Starting last month, they flashed freeway electronic signs warning drivers to “EXPECT BIG DELAYS.”

Delaware Potatoes donated to needy after truck-train crash

MILFORD — Potatoes that spilled from a tractortrailer after a crash with a freight train are now being used to feed needy families in Delaware. The crash occurred Sunday on U.S. 13 in Milford. On Monday morning, the Department of Transportation emailed the Food Bank of Delaware and asked if it could use a dump truck full of potatoes, and the food bank immediately accepted. Food bank spokeswoman Kim Kostes says volunteers sorted through the potatoes to remove the damaged ones. She says bags of potatoes will be offered to the food bank’s 440 hunger relief program partners statewide. Samuel Frymoyer, the driver of the tractor-trailer, says it’s “awesome” that the potatoes are going to people in need.

Employee dies in accident at food processing plant

Continued from page 1A

LAWTON (AP) — Lawton police and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration are investigating a deadly accident at a Bar S Foods plant. Authorities received an emergency call late Tuesday that an employee was trapped in machinery. Bar S officials say Michael Raper was cleaning an auger when he fell into it. Police Lt. Steve Thornton says a forklift was used to stabilize then cut the auger in two. After it was lifted up, Raper was pulled out. Capt. Wade Shaw says the 26-year-old Duncan resident died at Comanche County Memorial Hospital the next day. Bar S Foods vice president for operations Danny Dupree said the company is conducting its own investigation and is working with all government agencies to determine the accident’s cause. The plant produces skinless smoked sausage and franks.

Lamb Continued from 1A

Lamb said the Legislature made significant progress during the 2011 session toward making Oklahoma more competitive on the jobs front. He said the workers compensation and education reforms enacted this year as well as the reduction in the top income tax rate will make the state more job friendly in the future. Prior to his election to the lieutenant governor post, Lamb represented the voters in Senate District 47 and served as the majority floor leader in the Senate. A graduate of Oklahoma State University with a law degree from Oklahoma City University’s School of Law, Lamb served in Gov. Frank Keating’s administration, was a

special agent in the Secret Service, was on the staff of U.S. Sen. Don Nickles and worked as a petroleum landman and an adjunct

Davis, Sulphur, Dougherty, Joy, Hennepin, Wynnewood fire departments and Bureau of Indian Affairs firefighters from the Chickasaw Nation and Seminole Nation at Wewoka were on the scene. Throughout the day there had been little firefighters on the ground could do to halt the blaze. Murray County Sheriff Darin Rogers said reports from the fire scene indicated the landscape was so harsh it was impossible for fire trucks to maneuver. Helicopters had been called into service during the day to dump water

loads from the air, but flames continued their surge. Murray County Commissioner Bill Lance said

Thursday evening he had received reports of the fire throughout the day, but had had no updates since the commissioners’ office

had closed at 5 p.m. In a telephone interview with Lance at about 8 p.m., he confirmed no reports of injuries.

Judge throws out challenge to visa lottery WASHINGTON (AP) — A federal judge dismissed a lawsuit Thursday by a group of would-be immigrants who were told they had won a chance to apply for a U.S. visa, saying the State Department was right to void the results of its annual visa lottery after a computer error. Those in the group had been seeking class action status in their bid to stop the government from nullifying their selection in the visa lottery. One of them, 42-year-old French native Armande Gil, who lives in Florida, called the decision by U.S. District Judge Amy Berman Jackson another disappointment. “It makes the injustice even bigger and it’s just a sense that there is nobody who hears us and whatever the government wants to do with us they can do and there is nothing we can do about it,” said Gil, who had hoped to preserve her long-shot chance to get a U.S. visa without the traditional family or employer sponsorship. About 22,000 people were notified in early May that they had won a chance to apply for a visa as part of the Diversity Visa Lottery Program, which is aimed at increasing the number of immigrants from the developing world and countries with historically low rates of emigration to the U.S.

Google 2Q earnings soar past analyst estimates SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Google Inc. ushered in new CEO Larry Page with second-quarter earnings that were far better than analysts expected. The results released Thursday reassured investors who had been fretting whether Google would still thrive under Page’s leadership. The Google co-founder replaced Eric Schmidt, the CEO of the previous decade, at the start of the quarter. Wall Street wasted little time signaling its exuberance with Page’s performance. Google shares increased $54.51, or more than 10 percent, to $583.45 in extended trading after finishing the regular session at $528.94. Google Inc. earned $2.5 billion, or $7.68 per share, in the April-June period. That’s a 36 percent increase from $1.84 billion, or $5.71 per share, a year ago.

Wellhead equipment company adding 15 jobs OKEMAH, Okla. (AP) — Wellhead gas compression equipment manufacturer Sertco Industries Inc. says it’s expanding its operations in Okemah and plans to add 15 new workers by the end of the year. The company says it’s working with the city of Okemah on the $2.25 million expansion, which will add 12,100 square feet of assembly space, 3,600 square feet of office space and 2,000 square feet of paint booth space. Sertco now has 45 full-time employees. The Oklahoma Department of Commerce is providing $500,000 in grant funding to help pay for construction of the new buildings. The state’s Economic Development Administration and Department of Transportation are combining to provide $1.033 million in grant money for industrial road extensions and overlays. Sertco is investing about $800,000 for new equipment and machinery.

From the nearly 15 million applications submitted between Oct. 5 and Nov. 3, 2010, about 90,000 names were supposed to be selected at random by a computer program. That number was to have been reduced to no more than 55,000 through attrition, interviews and various eligibility rules. A glitch in the system meant that nearly 90 percent of winners were


people who had applied within the first two days of the application period. Several of the original winners filed suit in federal court in Washington last month, weeks after the results were nullified.

Towns eye split of ConocoPhillips operations OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Business leaders in the northern Oklahoma towns of Bartlesville and Ponca City, where ConocoPhillips has deep roots, were hopeful that their communities would benefit after the energy company announced Thursday that it would split into two companies. ConocoPhillips spokesman John Roper said he anticipates “most people will keep their jobs” through the split into a company that produces oil and another that refines it into gasoline and other fuels, although he couldn’t address specifics. He said there will “have to be a wall” between the

new companies, but that “they will co-exist.” “Oklahoma is part of our history and it’s key to ConocoPhillips,” Roper said. Houston-based ConocoPhillips, created by a 2002 merger, now has about 3,500 employees in Bartlesville and about 840 in Ponca City out of a total work force of about 29,600. The company’s “shared services” employees, such as those in accounting, tax and excise services, human resources, general marketing, procurement and financial management groups, are located in Bartlesville, company spokeswoman Summer

tinental Oil and Transportation Co., which was founded in 1875. Conoco later moved its headquarters to Houston. Brothers Frank and L.E. Phillips started Phillips Petroleum Co. in Bartlesville in 1917. But since Phillips’ headquarters left Bartlesville following the merger with Conoco, the company has increased its presence in the town of about 35,000, Wilt said. “It didn’t hurt us like everybody thought it would,” she said. “We weathered that and we’ve come out of it stronger. ... This split will make the company stronger and that will only benefit our community.”



Austin said. ConocoPhillips has a refinery operation in Ponca City. “Our community has experienced many changes of the company through the years,” said Sherri Wilt, the president of the Bartlesville Regional Chamber of Commerce. “We’ve been successful in the past living with those changes and we will continue to do so. The company has been committed to Bartlesville and I’m optimistic that commitment is going to continue.” Conoco was created in Ponca City in 1929 through the merger of Marland Oil Co. — started by Ponca City icon and former Gov.

For Emmys, networks have the right sense of humor LOS ANGELES (AP) — With “Mad Men,” ‘’Boardwalk Empire” and other prestige series, cable ruled the Emmy nominations for drama. But broadcast networks got the last laugh with their sitcoms. Of the six nominees for best drama series only one, CBS’ “The Good Wife,” is a network program. Of the half-dozen comedy series contenders, all air on networks. Members of the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences clearly favored sitcom tradition in Thursday’s nominations. “Modern Family,” ‘’The Office” and other broadcast shows have a more purely comic bent and err on the good-natured side of satire. Cable comedies are increasingly, in a word, mordant: Think Showtime’s “The Big C,” about a cancer-stricken woman. “There was a heyday of comedies on cable like ‘Sex and the City,’ but now it’s broadcast” that dominates the genre for Emmy voters, said Tom O’Neil, editor of the award websites and The lack of cable comedy bids may represent “a bit of a backlash” against the hybrid comedy-drama, O’Neil said. It also underscores the sitcom’s resurgence on broadcast TV, which seemed to lose its comic touch as hits such as

Actors like Elisabeth Moss of “Mad Men,” and Hugh Laurie of “House” were among those who received Emmy nominations Thursday. The Associated Press

“Friends” and “Seinfeld” faded into memory and weren’t replaced. A winning new crop is now emerging, including ABC’s “Modern Family” and its clever take on what family has come to mean. Crowned best comedy series after its freshman season, it received 17 nominations this time around. Nods also went to NBC’s “Parks and Recreation,” ‘’The Office” and “30 Rock,” CBS’ “The Big Bang Theory” and Fox’s “Glee.” They’ve yet to break into lofty ratings territory — only one comedy, CBS’ former Charlie Sheen vehicle “Two and a Half Men,” cracks the Nielsen top 20 — but they’re gen-

erating buzz and gaining momentum. “OK, keep it together,” a surprised nominations co-announcer Melissa McCarthy said Thursday when she realized she was a nominee herself for “Mike & Molly.” While cable comedies were overlooked, their stars weren’t. Edie Falco, who was named best actress in a comedy last year for Showtime’s “Nurse Jackie,” was nominated again. Laura Linney scored a bid for “The Big C” and Louis C.K. earned

HBO’s wild Prohibitionera series “Boardwalk Empire” (18) and fantasy saga “Game of Thrones” (13).

Other best drama cable nominees are DirecTV’s “Friday Night Lights” and Showtime’s “Dexter.”

a best comedy actor bid for his FX Networks show “Louie.” Given broadcasters fixation on franchise crime dramas such as “CSI”and “NCIS,” it’s unsurprising that cable’s daring, unique (and often awash in nudity and violence) series dominate the Emmys.

It’s miserably hot in Oklahoma


t was 110 degrees recently in Oklahoma City. 110! We realize there are other parts of the country, indeed other parts of Oklahoma, that bump up against those kinds of temperatures more than occasionally during the summer, but in the metro area that’s rare. It had been 15 years since the thermometer last read 110 in Oklahoma City. Here’s a vote for not seeing it happen again for at least another 15, although we’re not encouraged about those prospects. That high was just a notch or two above the previous few days. It cooled off to 105 later. As of recent, Oklahoma City had already seen 21 days with triple-digit temperatures this year, with more expected. And oh yes, it’s not even mid-July. We still have the rest of this month and all of usually broiling August ahead of us. Hot is one thing. Miserably hot is another. It was so hot recently that an EMSA paramedic suffered symptoms of heat exhaustion — and those folks are well trained in staying hydrated and taking other precautions in the heat. Oklahoma City officials have asked residents to go to an odd-even system for watering their lawns. This means residents with odd-numbered addresses should water on odd-numbered days, and vice versa. Public health officials are urging people to be extra careful with their outdoor activities. Our preference is to stay inside and read the newspaper or a good book (including The Good Book, which reminds us that the man upstairs doesn’t burden us with more than we can handle), or perhaps watch a movie. A few weeks ago, syndicated columnist Paul Greenberg offered 50 whimsical suggestions for beating the heat. Among them: Take siestas; arrange to live in the early morning and after twilight. Don’t hurry back, or anywhere. “Nothing can be more useful to a man than a determination not to be hurried.” — Henry David Thoreau. He may have been a Massachusetts man, but he had to be a Southerner at heart. Park in the shade. Give the kids a nap. Take one yourself. Or watch an old “Mister Rogers” show with a small child; it’ll soothe both of you. If you get the urge to exercise, lie down at once. If you absolutely must, swim. In cool water. Never run, seldom walk, stroll if you must. Peaches. Served with a little vanilla ice cream. Don’t fret. Why worry about things till you have to? You may never have to. Greenberg invited readers to “clip and save, mix and match, and add your own.” We would add this: Remember our military men and women in Afghanistan and Iraq, serving on our behalf. Recently, the high in Baghdad was 117. —The Oklahoman

Moderately Confused

arkansas democrat-gazette columnist

And now a word about Rupert Murdoch So here’s the synopsis of my forthcoming expose emulating Evelyn Waugh’s novel “Scoop.” I conceived it during an email exchange with a French friend who’s an expert on the British satirist. The working title is “Scantily Clad.” A tabloid newspaper hires buxom ladies to “have it off,” as the Brits say, with politicians, celebrities, members of the royal family and the Manchester United Football Club. Once done, editors hire a hitman to kill them off, and a psychic to help Scotland Yard find the bodies — preferably naked in luxury hotel suites or stately country homes with riding stables and formal gardens. Is there a serial killer among the aristocrats? Millions of yobbos (working-class folks) demand to know. Enter an intrepid French politician with a hyphenated name to expose the plot by exposing himself to a buxom hotel maid dispatched by The Daily Wank to seduce him ... OK, that’s enough. Even if I could write fiction, I couldn’t write British fiction. Besides, satire depends upon comic exaggeration, while the deepening scandal involving Rupert Murdoch’s News International corporation has far surpassed my puerile imaginings. After all, prostitutes get bumped off every day in this fallen world. For a newspaper to exploit the families of kidnapped 13year-old girls, the victims of terrorist attacks and the families of soldiers killed in Iraq and Afghanistan, however, implies an indifference to human dignity

that can only be described as depraved. All that and more was apparently done by Murdoch’s gene n o w - d e - lyons funct News of the World. News International shuttered the weekly tabloid in a transparent attempt to pretend that executives have been shocked by the transgressions of overzealous staffers. Meanwhile, The Sun, Murdoch’s other London tabloid, obtained the medical records of thenPrime Minister Gordon Brown’s 4-month-old son. Brown said that he and his wife were “in tears” upon learning that their infant’s cystic fibrosis would decorate the newspaper’s front page. Brown has accused another Murdoch newspaper, the allegedly respectable Sunday Times, of hiring “known criminals” to rummage through his bank accounts, legal records and tax returns. “If I,” Brown has said, “with all the protection and all the defenses and all the security that a chancellor of the Exchequer or a prime minister, am so vulnerable to unscrupulous tactics, to unlawful tactics, methods that have been used in the way we have found, what about the ordinary citizen?” So that’s lesson one.

your intimate sins and sorrows will be merchandised as infotainment for the rabble. Perhaps British audiences titillated to hear of Prince Charles’s wish to become a tampon shouldn’t be so horrified to see innocent crime victims treated as rudely as philandering aristocrats. After all, Murdoch’s minions may have rationalized, what does it matter why somebody’s famous? Fame has no rights. Even more than his fiercely competitive business practices, it’s Murdoch’s unsparingly cynical view of human nature that’s made him the most powerful media mogul in the world. Mass audiences respond to voyeurism: sex, violence, personal tragedy, and racial and political melodrama. And in Great Britain particularly, people yearn to see the mighty humiliated. Nevertheless, the British are horrified. They’re outraged about journalists bribing cops, about interfering in murder investigations, about identity theft, and about hacking thousands of cell phones, even as News International executives assured Parliament that a handful of rogue employees were involved. (News flash: newspaper staffers can’t authorize six-figure payoffs.) Murdoch’s coziness with Tory and Labour politicians alike has become a problem for him and them. See, something else people love is the vicarious pleasure of watching a cover-up come undone. News International bigshots are face cards, too. Prominent careers will be

ruined; powerful people are going to prison. Meanwhile, notice how studiously everybody in the United States is concentrating on the purely British aspects of the scandal? Murdoch’s ruthless; he gets even. Besides, a person could end up working for him. However, cracks have developed in the transAtlantic wall. Already, a former New York cop has said News of the World offered him cash to hack the cells of the 9/11 dead. Les Hinton, the longtime aide Murdoch placed in charge of the Wall Street Journal, is among those who gave now-inoperative testimony to Parliament in 2007. One bad apple, he said. Even Roger Cohen, for my money The New York Times’ best columnist, defends Murdoch’s “visionary, risk-taking determination” even as he deplores the influence of his biggest moneymaker, Fox News. “(W)ith its shrill right-wing demagoguery masquerading as news,” he writes, “(Fox has) made a significant contribution to the polarization of American politics, the erosion of reasoned debate, the debunking of reason itself, and the ensuing Washington paralysis.” Apart from having the moral imagination of a water moccasin, in other words, Rupert Murdoch’s just a terrific guy.

Bullocks to speak at Bethel Assembly of God Church this Sunday morning Alan and Anoosh Bullock Damascus Road Ministries, will speak at 10:30 a.m. Sunday at Bethel Assembly of God Church. The couple, who have a worldwide ministry, are described as “supernaturally unique.” Alan was the first American ever to be married in the former Soviet Union and his marriage to Anoosh was the first ever to take place in Russia between an American and a Soviet citizen. The couple’s story: Alan was saved in 1973. Soon after he began having a series of dreams he believed were from the

Lord. The dreams were about a women he knew he would meet and marry someday. At the same time, Anoosh Markosian, was an Armenian Christian, living in Armenia USSR and praying that the Lord would show an American minister her name, face and address; so he would come to Russia, find and marry her and together they would travel the world telling of the Lord’s love and power. Although the couple said the KGB and the Russian government did everything to hinder God’s plan to bring them together, they not

only found each other, they were married Nov. 14, 1976, in a 6th century church in the former Soviet Union. Through a series of “divine” miracles that followed, Anoosh was given permission to come to the United States a year later. Since her arrival in America the couple has traveled the world speaking in churches and at conferences and various meetings and encouraging others to not give up on the brink of their own miracle Bethel AGC is located at 4420 W. Anoosh and Alan Bullock of Damascus Road Ministries will speak at Bethel Assembly of God Church Broadway St. Sunday morning. Contribute d photo

Cowboy Church

Lending a helping hand The Rawhide Cowboy Church of Carter County received assistance last week from Grapevine, Texas First Baptist Church. More than 50 Texas volunteers traveled to the new cowboy church, located on Gene Autry Road. The group reportedly completed “most” of the outside construction and provided interior work as well. Trinity Baptist Church, Ardmore, and Milo First Baptist Church, are spon-

sors of the new church, which is reaching out to farmers, ranchers and cowboys. A sign installed in front of the church depicts a cowboy kneeing beside his horse and contains the slogan, “Changing lives one ride at a time.” The Grapevine group was led by Jim Burger. Members of Trinity Baptist cooked and served dinners to the volunteers throughout the week. Other churches in the

Enon Association provided lunches. TBC also recently conducted joint Sunday services with the cowboy church, which included a roping exhibition. Tim Jones, pastor of Rawhide Cowboy Church of Carter County, said he is “looking forward” to completion on the building, scheduled for mid September, the same month the church will celebrate its’ third anniversary.

Gov. signs landmark law to teach gay history

Governor, GOP leaders have deal to end state government shutdown ST. PAUL (AP) — Minnesota’s Democratic Gov. Mark Dayton and Republican legislators struck a deal Thursday to end a budget impasse that led to the longest state government shutdown in recent history. The deal came after a threehour negotiating session that followed major concessions by Dayton. If details are worked out and approved by state legislators, it would end a two-week shutdown. The two sides agreed on a proposal that would raise $1.4 billion in new revenue, half by delaying state aid checks to school districts and the other half by selling tobacco payment bonds. Dayton’s concession was contingent on Republicans dropping a list of policy changes and a plan to cut the state workforce by 15 percent. The date of the special session to officially end the shutdown has not been set. Some terms of the deal still need to be filled in. “We’re on a fast-track to getting this resolved permanently,” Dayton said. The governor, who had pre-

SACRAMENTO (AP) — Gov. Jerry Brown has signed a bill making California the first state in the nation to add lessons about gays and lesbians to social studies classes in public schools. Brown, a Democrat, signed the landmark bill requiring public schools to include the contributions of people who are gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender in social studies curriculum. The Democratic-majority Legislature had passed the bill last week on a largely party-line vote. “History should be honest,” the governor said in a statement Thursday. “This bill revises existing laws that prohibit discrimination in education and ensures that the important contributions of Americans from all backgrounds and walks of life are included in our history books.” Brown signed the bill Wednesday, but announced on Thursday that he had done so. The bill has drawn criticism from some churches and conservative groups that argue such instruction would expose students to a subject that some parents find objectionable.

Minnesota Governor Mark Dayton listens to members of the public explain how state budget cuts would affect them at a roundtable discussion Wednesday July 13, 2011 at the Rochester, Minn. Senior Citizen Center. The associated Press

viously made raising taxes on high earners the centerpiece of his proposal to solve a $5 billion budget deficit, sounded weary earlier Thursday when he announced he would embrace the old GOP proposal. After the deal was announced, both he and Republican leaders looked somber. “No one’s going to be happy with this, which is the essence of real compromise,” Dayton said.

“I think the people of Minnesota won today.” “This is an agreement that is, I think, difficult for both sides,” Senate Majority Leader Amy Koch said. The deal is contingent on approval by the Legislature, no easy task after an election in which a more conservative Republican caucus took power. But Koch said she believed rank-and-file legislators would approve it.

Kennedy family divided over future of the family compound HYANNIS PORT, Mass. (AP) — For the Kennedys, the family compound has long been a place to relax, to celebrate and to grieve. Members of America’s most glamorous political dynasty played touch football on the lawn, walked the beach and sailed the sound. The cluster of whiteclapboard homes on Cape Cod served as the summer White House when Jack was president. It was there that the family retreated after his assassination. And it was there that Caroline held her wedding reception and Ted spent his final days. Now, as the Kennedys gather for another wedding there, the family is divided over the future of the compound. On Friday, Patrick Kennedy, a former eight-term congressman from Rhode Island and the son of the late Sen. Edward Kennedy, will marry New Jersey schoolteacher Amy Petitgout in a small, private ceremony presided over by Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer. At the same time, the Kennedys are split over what is to become of this Camelotby-the sea.

Dear Abby


Baseball themed coney island Aunt’s trepadation shouldn’t being opened by Budro’s owner ruin teen’s trip of a lifetime By Abigail Van Buren

By Kevin Kerr

Budro’s Rib Joint owner Buddy Simon has done what he can to introduce people to the things he likes: fun, entertainment and good food. But soon, he hopes to bring things he loves to his customers, baseball and coney hot dogs. Simon will be opening his new restaurant, Diamond Dawgs, Monday. The idea behind the restaurant is to offer customers everything they would have at a Major League ballpark. “It’ll be a place you can walk into, order your dogs, sit down and enjoy,” Simon said. “You can fill your belly in five minutes and for around five bucks.” Conveniently attached to Budro’s Rib Joint, Simon said it was a no-brainer to open the restaurant in the same building.. “It used to be our nonsmoking section, but no one was using it really,” Simon said. “When we started looking for a building for this place, it dawned on me, we’ve got this one right here.” Adorned with more baseball memorabilia than wallspace, the coney

The Baseball themed Diamond Dawgs is scheduled to open Monday, with a grand opening set for Friday. Michael Pineda/The Ardmoreite

restaurant will feature everything Coney Island and baseball, right down to the professional grade astroturf floor, to the baseball plate barstools. Simon even named the “field” after an old friend of his, Bill “Trish” Trisciana, who played for the Boston Red Sox and passed away recently. “I’m not a Boston Fan, I’m a Yankees fan, but he was a good friend,” Simon said. “We put his hat in a case and named the field after him as a tribute.” Simon said the menu will be both simple, but diverse too. From the Triple Play dog (a weenie wrapped in hamburger and bacon, deep fried and smothered in cheese) to a cajun in-

spired concoction yet to be named (an andouille sausage topped with crawfish tails and fried okra), Simon will have numerous specialty dogs, all with baseball themed names. “But for me, it’s all about the coney,” Simon said. “There’s nothing like grabbing a couple of coneys and a beer and watching baseball.” Simon hopes to work out all the “kinks” starting Monday, but will have a grand opening July 22 featuring OU head baseball coach Sunny Golloway and many of the OU players. “They’ll come out, sign some stuff, and we hope it’s going to bring in the customers to check out the place,” Simon said.

DEAR ABBY: My 13year-old daughter, “Alisa,” has earned a scholarship to participate in a monthlong summer language program in Turkey. As soon as my sister “June” found out I was allowing Alisa to attend, she called me a moron. She has been giving me the silent treatment for almost a month. June is terrified my daughter will be a victim of terrorists, a plane crash, kidnapping or worse. Alisa has consistently proven she is trustworthy and responsible. After some research I determined the country and the program are safe. Alisa will be traveling with a small group of students and three adult chaperones who are native to the host country. Our mother was afraid of everything, and I don’t want to pass that kind of irrational fear on to Alisa

after she worked so hard to earn a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that could shape the course of her life. Am I really a poor parent for allowing my child to travel halfway around the world? I feel I made the right decision. — STUNNED SISTER IN LITTLE ROCK DEAR STUNNED SISTER: A poor parent? Not at all. You would

be one if you caved in to your sister’s emotional blackmail. Taking this trip is a privilege your daughter worked hard for, and seeing firsthand that there is a world filled with interesting, good people will open her mind to opportunities and possibilities that few people her age are able to experience.

End to terrorism can’t be guaranteed MUMBAI, India (AP) — The triple bombing that killed 17 in the heart of India’s financial capital sparked anger Thursday over the government’s inability to prevent terror strikes despite overhauling security forces after the 2008 Mumbai siege. Indian officials say they have made extraordinary security reforms since 10 Pakistani terrorists rampaged across the city nearly three years ago, but following Wednesday’s attack they warned they may never be able to guarantee a terror-free nation in a region plagued by extremism. “We live in the most troubled neighborhood in the world,” said Indian Home Minister Palaniappan Chidambaram, pointing to nearby Pakistan and Afghanistan. “Every part of India is vulnerable.” No terror group claimed responsibility — and investigators had no immediate suspects — in the bombings that shook three separate neighborhoods within minutes during Wednesday’s busy evening rush. Chidambaram said the government had no intelligence warning. “Whoever has perpetrated this attack has worked in a very, very clandestine manner,” he said. Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, who flew united kingdom

Murdochs to be questioned by parliament LONDON (AP) — Rupert Murdoch and his son James first refused, then agreed Thursday to appear before U.K. lawmakers investigating phone hacking and police bribery, while in the U.S., the FBI opened an investigation into allegations the Murdoch media empire sought to hack into the phones of Sept. 11 victims. Those two developments — and the arrest of another former editor of the scandal-sunk U.K. tabloid News of the World — deepened the crisis for Murdoch’s News Corp., which has seen its stock price sink as investors ask whether the scandal could drag down the whole company. British lawmakers took the dramatic step of issuing a summons to the once all-powerful Murdochs after the father and son said they would not appear before Parliament’s Culture, Media and Sport Committee on Tuesday. Within hours, the Murdochs made room in their schedules after all. “We are in the process of writing to the select committee with the intention that Mr. James Murdoch and Mr. Rupert Murdoch will attend next Tuesday’s meeting,” News Corp. spokeswoman Miranda Higham said. The committee later confirmed it had received a letter confirming the pair’s attendance. It was another victory for politicians over the Murdochs — something that would have been all but unthinkable just two weeks ago.

Palestinians get Arab League boost for U.N. drive RAMALLAH, West Bank (AP) — The Arab League on Thursday endorsed a Palestinian plan to seek full membership at the United Nations this fall, setting up a likely confrontation with the United States in the powerful U.N. Security Council. Negotiations with Israel on the terms of Palestinian statehood have been frozen since 2008. As an alternative, the Palestinians have decided to seek U.N. recognition of an independent “Palestine” in the West Bank, Gaza and east Jerusalem, the areas Israel captured in the 1967 Mideast war. Arab League foreign ministers met Thursday in Doha, Qatar, said they would support the Palestinian bid. The ministers pledged in a statement to “take all necessary measures and to rally needed support of all world countries, starting with members of the Security Council, to recognize the state of Palestine ... and to win full membership of the United Nations.”

“What should I get for the money I pay my listing broker?” There is an ongoing conversation in the nation about budgets and what we are getting for our money. That’s a rational response to a difficult economy. While many sellers are looking to reduce bills and find a smaller, more affordable home, buyers are equally disciplined in sticking to their budgets. Without a doubt we are going through challenging times in local real estate as well. Here are some hard facts on the current market: • *The number of residential sales in our MLS for the first six months of the year was off close to 40% compared to 2010 and the average sales price was down 10%. • *Approximately 32% of residential listings expired without being sold. That number is up from 23% in the same period in 2010. In a difficult market, getting your home in front of as many people as possible is of paramount importance. We still do yard signs, spend money on ads in the newspaper and on television, but over 90% of buyers now look at the internet during their search. Most of them use websites as their primary source of information about local homes for sale. For this reason, we have recently completed a major redesign of our website to incorporate the latest features our MLS offers. The protocol that we use to share our listings is called IDX. What is IDX? It stands for Internet Data Exchange and is a free tool provided by the National Association of Realtors. It is a direct benefit to sellers because it allows additional exposure of properties on other realtor’s websites (data cannot be fabricated and must adhere to strict guidelines). Most brokers share listings through In our attempt to put our listings in front of as many potential buyers as possible, we choose to go a step further. The fact is that is not the most visited real estate site on the internet. We are now able to have our listings broadcast to other major real estate websites. Since we can’t guarantee that every buyer interested in area property comes to our website, we allow our competitors to display our listings on their sites, too. Why do we do this? Because it is the best thing for our sellers. Of course we are competitive and would prefer to find the buyer ourselves for each one of our listings, but we know that is not necessarily the best solution for our customers. When we take on a new client we are agreeing to look out for their interests before our own. A majority of the time that will mean that another broker finds the buyer that is the best match to our seller. A quick analysis of residential sales in our MLS during the first six months of 2011: • *Home listings broadcast using IDX sold for 90% of their list price on average and sold in an average of 159 days. • *Those homes not broadcast on IDX sold for 87% of their list price and were on the market for 170 days. It’s always been said that time is money and here is another example. That 3% difference in sale price is approximately 50% of what most sellers pay in commission to their broker. So, if you aren’t using a broker that uses IDX, how much are you really paying?

Staged, Styled and Sold • How Can Staging Benefit You? The public is becoming the driving force to make sure all resources are used when preparing their home for marketing. There is a direct and proportional relationship to the expected sales price and the amount of preparation taken at the very beginning of marketing the property. • Staging, properly done, can actually make the home owner more money than was spent on the staging project. • Staging does not make the prospective buyer use their imagination, it instantly shows them. It allows them to fall in love with the home. • Staging is NOT decorating. It opens up the home to appear it’s largest & brightest. • Staging results in a higher sales price. • Staging typically shortens the amount of time” on the market”. Staging can actually make the homeowner additional money that might have been lost in this tight market. Even though the decision to buy is based on the economics of the buyer, it still is one of the most emotional decisions that a buyer will ever make. For as little as a few hundred to a few thousand dollars, the effort is distinctly rewarding to the homeowner. Most often, we can use the items already in the home. Most buyers lose patience when expected to find a way to make the property work. We have only a few seconds to make that important first impression. These owners turned the house over to us, then went to Mexico. They said “Do your magic and call me when we have it sold”.

The house is a charming bungalow in an excellent part of town and is certainly in the mainstream market. You don’t have to have a newer, larger property to be successful with staging. And we did not even open a paint bucket...just tending to the yard!!!



Staging is often confused with decorating. The purpose of staging is to show more wall and floor spaced allowing the buyers to visualize all of their options. The most obvious is to let the rooms appear their largest. By removing family pictures, collectables and all those little gems essential to the homeowner’s family, the buyers are less distracted. When buyers become fascinated with the artwork, personal items and such, they are not concentrating on how the home will work for them. The moment buyers set foot on the property, they are looking for reasons why “this home is not the one” so they can move on to other homes on the list. If there are signs that areas need attention, they may become suspicious and wonder what else might be wrong. Staging adds comfort, and Before lets the buyers concentrate on more important stats of the home.

The light-colored bedding and white drapes were selected for their softness and airiness and to tone down the dark woods. White is used as an accent color so shells are the featured accessory throughout the space. The seating area under the window tends to draw the eye and emphasize the already generous space.

first 30 days of marketing, there is a steady, declining expectation of sales price. Staging is most successful when done by an unbiased person, devoid of the affection and attachment of the personal items. What to do with all the extra stuff? The rental of a small storage building can be obtained for $40 or $50 a month. It is temporary until the close of the sale. And, why not start packing nonessential items? It is a head start on the whole moving project. Staging your home can actually make you money while a remodel does not usually “make” you money. Staging can result in receiving for or five times the investment. For years, homeowners have invested in remodel projects in hopes of recovering some of their money when they sell the

home. The National Association of Realtors (NAR) has published annual statistics showing how much of the costs of various projects could be recovered when the property is sold. Usually, somewhere between 45% to 83% of the costs to remodel can be recovered. But, never do they suggest an expectation of making more money than what was invested (with one exception: replacing the front door should reward the homeowner 104% of the cost). More information is available at, 2010-2011 report. Across the nation, real estate brokers and stagers are teaming up, working together to the benefit of the expectant seller. I want to give special credit to designer and stager, Jana Rodgers of JKR Designs. Without her, this would not have happened! Kitchen before AND AFTER!

RSD Sufferers find solace in support groups DEAR DR. GOTT: I have had Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD) for going on 30 years. Maybe if it had been diagnosed at the onset of my symptoms, I would not have full-body RSD today, but years ago not many doctors knew about this condition. Back then my orthopedic doctor suggested I go to a hospital where I was finally diagnosed. The doctors there tried blocks and various other treatments, including an electrical stimulation unit, but nothing worked so I used conventional medications to help my pain. The best therapy was water therapy, which I still do. Twelve years ago I was asked if I wanted to try a Medtronic pump, which has morphine in it (some have several different meds in them). It worked, and while I do still have to take breakthrough meds, I am able to function normally. I started a support group at my local hospital for RSD patients. The turnout was wonderful. After meeting a new pain doctor, he suggested I start a second group at a nearby hospital. Turnout for this group was also wonderful. Although there may only be six people at either meeting, the fact that we can help others with the condition is very rewarding. Over the years we not only

had adults come to our meetings but also parents with their daughters, so in June 2010 we decided to start a third RSD support group for children. (It seems to affect females more than males; we have only four men in one group and two in the other.) It is heartbreaking to see and hear the stories of these children and what they go through. Many of them have lost their friends because they didn’t want to be with someone who has a chronic pain condition and who can’t do many of the normal things kids do. Thankfully, most have adjusted and made new friends. There is hope. Finding the right doctor and having a system of family, friends and a support group are very important. Many marriages and friendships have fallen apart because the partner or friend doesn’t want or know how to deal with someone with chronic pain. RSD sufferers, once you’re diagnosed, ask your doctor about local support groups or search online for them. Make contact, talk to others with the condition and share your story. Dr. Gott, thank you for letting me “talk.” I hope this helps others with RSD/CRPS. DEAR READER: Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy/

Complex Regional Pain Syndrome is a chronic pain condition. I have writ- FRANK and ERNEST ten about it in the past (you can find the articles on my website by clicking “Browse by Topic”). Hydrotherapy and hyperbaric oxygen therapy have been found to be beneficial in the few emails I have received regarding treatment. Some were letters of thanks from sufferers for simply writing about RSD/CRPS. Support groups for any condition are incredibly valuable to sufferers, especially those for chronic THE BORN LOSER pain, which can often leave patients feeling isolated and depressed. Simply knowing that one isn’t alone can be a great comfort, and being able to share experiences, discuss therapies, find further medical help and understanding physicians, clinics and/or hospitals can make the difference between giving up and fighting. Those interested in learning more, including BEETLE BAILEY finding support groups (by state), can do so at the Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy Syndrome Association’s website, www.RSDS. org.

As soon as he could, new Ardmore offensive coordinator Todd Scott took the field with some of the Tigers. This week, Scott got a good

look at some of the speed he’ll have at his disposal this fall, running the Tigers through passing and running drills. And when he wasn’t on the field, the new hire could be found peering over game film from 2010. Ardmore head coach Douglas Wendel said the offensive scheme is one that he and Scott will decide on together. Scott is a fan of the spread option. “I couldn’t be more pleased,” Scott said of his first week. “We’re not doing a lot scheme-wise, but formation-wise; we want to be

real sound with our schemes. But they’re picking up things very quickly. I wonder if I’d been here since March or April where we’d be.” Scott, 49, last coached at Cedarville, Ark., but has had coaching stints with Tulsa East Central, McAlester, Booker T. Washington, Tahlequah, Grove and Locust Grove. The players have seen a tangible difference in the intensity of their offensive workouts in one week with the Salina native. “The OC is serious,” rising senior Josiah Reed said Tuesday.

“He’s really, really pushed us for the first two days, we’ve just gotta get on the same page.” One thing that Wendel has been impressed by in his short time at Ardmore is the team speed, comparing it to what he saw at Lake Highlands in Texas. “It’s not just one or two or three or four, but 10 to 12 (players) look good,” he said.

Maxie Cup pits Dornick vs. Lakeview The Ardmoreite

The annual course competition fires up again today at Dornick Hills. Lakeview Golf Course is shooting for its third consecutive Maxie Cup, which begins first-round play today and concludes Saturday. Lakeview has won eight of the last 10 editions of the Maxie Cup — which showcases the top players from Lakeview’s and Dornick Hills’ respective club championships. Maxie Cup titles will also be awarded in senior men’s and ladies divisions. Lakeview won the senior division last season and Dornick Hills took the ladies’ crown. The Maxie Cup is named in honor of longtime Dornick Hills member Max Williamson, Tom Lewis, left, and Tom Watson walk down the 14th fairway during the first day of the British Open at who passed away in February of Royal St George’s golf course in Sandwich, England, on Thursday The associated press 2009.

Youth movement Amateur Tom Lewis, 20, shoots record 65 for lead

SANDWICH, England (AP) — Thomas Bjorn and Tom Lewis have nothing in common except for the unlikely position they shared Thursday atop the leaderboard at the British Open. It’s not just that one is twice as old. Or that Bjorn is a 40-year-old pro who wonders how much longer he can compete at the highest level, while Lewis is an amateur making his major championship debut, his best golf still to come. The biggest difference are their memories of Royal St George’s. Bjorn took a small step toward atonement with a birdie on the par-3 16th — the hole that cost him the claret jug in 2003 when he took three shots to escape a pot bunker — on his way to a 5-under 65 in the toughest conditions of the opening round. He made a birdie on Thursday, and couldn’t help but smile when he saw it bounce away from trouble and toward the flag. “When I hit the shot, I thought,

‘This is going to struggle.’ So when it just made it over that bunker, that was just a smile of knowing that things were going my way today,” Bjorn said. Lewis ran off four straight birdies late in his round, an amazing stretch that began on the par-5 14th. That’s the hole where Lewis wrapped up the British Boys Amateur Championship two years ago, the highlight of a sterling amateur record. A par on the final hole gave him a 65, the lowest ever by an amateur in the British Open, making him the first amateur to lead this championship in 43 years. “It was a special moment for me, winning here, and to come back to where you’ve won is extra special,” Lewis said. “I was just thrilled to be here, but to shoot 65 the first round was something I wouldn’t have thought. I was just happy to get the drive off the tee at the first, and that was all that mattered.” Adding to the nerves was play-

ing alongside Tom Watson, such a popular figure in the Lewis household that they named their oldest son after the five-time Open champion. And to think the kid only wanted to make sure he didn’t embarrass himself in front of Watson. “He could be my grandson,” Watson said. “I just had to smile inside to watch him play. I didn’t play particularly well myself, but I certainly was impressed by the way he played.” Bjorn wasn’t even in the tournament until Vijay Singh withdrew on Monday, giving the Dane another shot at Royal St George’s. When someone suggested if he would be better off not playing to avoid memories of his meltdown, Bjorn cut him off. Miguel Angel Jimenez also played in the windy morning conditions and had a bogey-free 66. He was joined later in the round by former U.S. Open champion Lucas Glover and Webb Simpson.

AP Source: Players, owners making progress NEW YORK (AP) — Making significant progress on one of the major sticking points in NFL labor talks, owners and players neared agreement Thursday on how to rein in the soaring salaries of high first-round draft picks, people familiar with the negotiations said. Another person with knowledge of the discussions told The Associated Press that Thursday’s 12-hour-plus meeting at a Manhattan law firm was producing results but that other key issues remained to be resolved, such as what free agency will look like moving forward and new offseason workout rules. The people spoke to The Associated Press on the condition of anonymity because the talks aimed at ending the NFL’s fourmonth-long lockout are supposed

to be confidential. With time running short to keep the preseason intact, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, NFL Players Association head DeMaurice Smith, eight owners and about a half-dozen current or former players were in their second consecutive day of lengthy negotiations. They were expected to meet again today. On rookie salaries, four people familiar with the talks said firstround draft picks will sign fouryear contracts with a club option for a fifth year. That represents a compromise; owners were hoping for five-year contracts, while players wanted highly drafted rookies to be under a team’s control for only four years. Under the system discussed Thursday, people told the AP, clubs will have an option for a

In Brief

Shaq joins Turner Sports as analyst Shaquille O’Neal agreed Thursday to a multiyear deal with Turner Sports to become an analyst on its NBA coverage, where he will fold his 7-foot-1 frame into the fourth chair on the TNT “Inside the NBA” set alongside Charles Barkley, Kenny Smith and Ernie Johnson. “I’m just going to try to make it more fun than it already is,” O’Neal said during a conference call. O’Neal also will contribute to NBA TV and NBA.

Philadelphia 76ers sale done PHILADELPHIA



Philadelphia 76ers have been sold to New York-based leveraged buyout specialist Joshua Harris, ending ComcastSpectacor’s 15-year run of ownership that included a trip to the NBA finals. The tentative deal, which does not include ownership of their building, the Wells Fargo Center, must be approved by the NBA. Terms were not disclosed, but the deal Wednesday comes with the league in the midst of a lockout. The start of the 2011-12 season in October is in jeopardy. “We are honored to have the opportunity to be affiliated

with this storied franchise,” Harris said in a statement. “As a basketball fan who attended college in Philadelphia, and with family roots here, I have always felt a strong connection to this City and the 76ers.” The new ownership also includes David Blitzer, a senior managing director of The

Meet the Sooners Day on Aug. 6 Autographs restricted to 14 and under NORMAN — The University of Oklahoma announced Thursday that its annual Meet the Sooners Day autograph session will be Aug. 6 at the practice fields near Gaylord Family-Oklahoma Memorial Stadium. Due to the event falling on a Saturday, a change to this year’s event is the restriction to children ages 14 and younger. Each child may be accompanied by a maximum of one adult, but adults will not be permitted to submit items for autographs. Senior associate athletics director for communications Kenny Mossman stated the Saturday date as the reason for the restriction. “Our desire with Meet the Sooners Day is to accommodate as many fans as possible,” Mossman said via press release. “We’ve discussed this event at length and examined it from every angle. The bottom line

is that our fan support is so great, we realistically cannot accommodate everyone when this event is held on a Saturday. The crowd numbers were very large on weekday mornings and we know that without some modification, those numbers would grow beyond what we can reasonably manage on the weekend. For that reason, we’ve decided to focus on the children.” OG&E Sooners Kids Club members will have a priority autograph session at 10 a.m., with general patrons admitted at 10:30 a.m. The session will conclude at noon. At 7 a.m., Gate 7 of the stadium will open with two lines forming — one for Kids Club members and the other for general patrons. Memberships for the OG&E Sooner Kids Club are available until July 29 when they will be suspended until after the autograph session. Applications are available online at SoonerSports. com or by calling the athletics department marketing office at (405) 325-6353.

Tour de france

Schleck bros. take advantage

LUZ-ARDIDEN, France (AP) — Score one for the Schleck brothers — Andy and Frank — against defending champion Alberto Contador. The Tour de France entered the Pyrenees on Thursday, and the Schlecks delivered a 1-2 punch with attacks at the end of the 131-mile Stage 12 from Cugnaux to the LuzArdiden ski station. By the finish, Contador was gritting From left to right, three-time Tour de France winner Alberto Contador, his teeth. Spanish climbing specialist Frank Schleck and his brother Andy climb during the 12th stage of the Tour de France on Thursday. The associated press Samuel Sanchez, whose team


is based in nearby Basque country, gave the home crowd reason to celebrate. He won the stage after riding inspired through a sea of red, green and white Basque flags. And the current darling of French cycling — Thomas Voeckler — surprised himself by keeping the yellow jersey on Bastille Day after scaling three punishing peaks. Sanchez and Voeckler, however, aren’t expected to be among the contenders for the title when the three-week cycling showcase ends July 24

on Paris’ Champs-Elysees. Contador and Andy Schleck — and maybe his brother — are. That’ll be after the race runs through more punishment in the Alps in Week Three and a pivotal individual time trial in Grenoble on the next-to-last race day. Thursday’s leg showed that the once indomitable Contador, who had a dismal Tour start because of crashes and stumbles at his Saxo Bank team, can be vulnerable in the mountains.

U.S. team inspired by ’99 winners

Former Major League baseball pitcher Roger Clemens leaves federal court in Washington on Thursday. The associated press

Judge calls mistrial in Clemens case WASHINGTON — Almost as soon as it began, former baseball star Roger Clemens’ perjury trial ended Thursday — in a mistrial the judge blamed on prosecutors and said a “first-year law student” would have known to avoid. U.S. District Judge Reggie Walton left the question of a new trial up in the air. But he called a halt to the trial under way after prosecutors showed jurors evidence that he had ruled out — videotaped revelations that a teammate had said he’d told his wife Clemens confessed to using a drug. Walton scolded prosecutors and said he couldn’t let the former All-Star pitcher face prison if convicted on such “extremely prejudicial” evidence. “Mr. Clemens has to get a fair trial,” Walton said. “In my view, he can’t get it now.” Defense attorney Rusty Hardin, who had asked for the mistrial declaration, patted an unsmiling Clemens on the back as the judge announced his decision. As he left the courthouse, Clemens did not comment but accepted hugs from a couple of court workers, shook hands with the security guards and autographed baseballs for fans waiting outside. The quick end on only the second day of testimony was the second mistrial involving a superstar player accused in baseball’s steroids scandal. Home run king Barry Bonds was convicted three months ago of obstruction of justice, but a mistrial was called on three more serious false-statements charges after jurors couldn’t agree on a verdict. Walton said he would hold a hearing Sept. 2 to decide whether Clemens should face another trial. Hardin told reporters, “I wouldn’t even hazard a guess” about what Walton will decide.

Ortiz, Gregg get four-game suspensions and fines for brawl BOSTON — Red Sox slugger David Ortiz and Baltimore pitcher Kevin Gregg were suspended four games and fined on Thursday for their parts in a July 8 bench-clearing brawl. Orioles pitcher Mike Gonzalez was suspended three games, and manager Buck Showalter was suspended one game as part of the punishment handed out Thursday by Major League Baseball. Gregg and Gonzalez have decided to appeal, delaying the suspensions; Ortiz was not immediately available for comment. — The Associated Press

Blue Jays crush Yankees to start second half TORONTO — Edwin Encarnacion and Eric Thames had three hits and three RBIs each and Toronto used an eight-run first inning to beat New York 16-7 on Thursday night. The Blue Jays set season highs in runs and hits (20) to win their fourth straight game. Toronto lost slugger Jose Bautista to a twisted right ankle in the fourth inning. Bautista, who leads the majors with 31 home runs, limped off after an awkward slide into third base. He is day-to-day.

Indians 8 Orioles 4 BALTIMORE — Asdrubal Cabrera and Carlos Santana homered and Justin Masterson struck out eight in six innings as Cleveland extended Baltimore’s losing streak to eight games. The victory moved the Indians into first place in the AL Central, percentage points ahead of idle Detroit. Cleveland lost three straight before the All-Star break to fall out of first for the first time since June 28.

Twins 8, Royals 4 MINNEAPOLIS — Trevor Plouffe hit a two-run homer and Delmon Young had three hits in his return to the lineup to lead Minnesota. Francisco Liriano (6-7) gave up three runs — one earned — and seven hits with four strikeouts in seven innings and Joe Mauer had two hits and two RBIs for the Twins.


Marlins 6, Cubs 3 CHICAGO — Pinch-hitter Greg Dobbs delivered a tworun double against closer Carlos Marmol, and the Florida Marlins scored six times in the ninth inning to rally for a 6-3 victory over the Chicago Cubs on Thursday night that extended their season-high winning streak to six games. The Marlins trailed 2-0 before sending 11 batters to the plate in their final at-bat while pulling out a dramatic victory. Matt Garza threw seven scoreless innings for Chicago and Sean Marshall worked the eighth, but Marmol (2-3) unraveled. He walked Mike Stanton, Mike Cameron and John Buck, throwing just one strike in the process, to load the bases, and Dobbs doubled into the right-field corner. — The Associated Press

FRANKFURT, Germany (AP) — Lauren Cheney was just 11 during the 1999 World Cup, watching from the stands and imagining what it would be like to be on that field with Mia Hamm and Michelle Akers and Julie Foudy and Brandi Chastain. Fast-forward a dozen years, and it’s Cheney’s turn in the spotlight. And somewhere, there’s another young girl watching. “She’s inspiring some 12- or 13-year-old girl just like she was inspired,” Chastain said Thursday. “That’s what I love about this team, they’re continuing the legacy.” That 1999 World Cup was a watershed moment for the U.S. team. All of women’s sports, really. The players were part of the first generation to reap the full benefits of Title IX, and they took it one step further by making it cool for girls to play sports. They were adored by little girls and boys alike, so famous the players could go by just one name. Mia. Brandi. Foudy. They packed stadiums from coast to coast — and not small ones, either. Soldier Field. The Meadowlands. Foxborough. And the granddaddy of them all, 90,000-plus in the Rose Bowl for the final. They won, too, beating China in a penalty kick shootout to give the United States a second World Cup trophy. “We showed where women’s athletics, women’s team sports, women’s soccer and soccer in general in America could go, and it was a tremendous event,” said Tony DiCicco, the coach of the ‘99 team. “We didn’t realize totally what was happening outside the event. But it was life-changing. I think it was life-changing for a lot of people, including some of the athletes on the current team.” As magnificent as the team’s success was, though, it’s cast a long shadow on everyone who’s come after. Every U.S. team is compared to the ‘99 squad, and nobody’s come close to measuring up. Sure, the Americans have won the last two Olympic gold medals. But the World Cup is soccer’s

biggest prize, and the U.S. hasn’t even made the final in the 21st century. Until now, that is. The U.S. plays Japan in Sunday’s final with a chance to become the first country to win three World Cup titles. “I’d be tired of (the comparisons), too, if I was them. That’s all they’ve heard for 12 years,” said Foudy, who is now ESPN’s lead analyst for the tournament. “What you hear from all of them is, ‘We just want to forge our own identity,’ which you can understand. Here’s a moment that the country can embrace this team and wrap their arms around this team and they have defined it. Nobody did it for them. “They’ve given this country such a reason to love them,” Foudy added. “You couldn’t have script-

ed this better for them.” This U.S. team isn’t a polished, precise group that dismantles opponents, the way the ‘99 team was. The Americans arrived in Germany with three losses in a fivemonth span, what qualifies as an alarming “bad streak” for a U.S. team, and then lost a World Cup group-stage game for the first time. But they grabbed their country’s attention with one thunderous header by Abby Wambach in the 122nd minute against Brazil, and have continued to charm the folks back home with grit, determination and colorful personalities. Their bandwagon is packed with Hollywood celebs and fellow athletes — not so packed there isn’t room for more, though — and one fan is so besotted with Megan

Rapinoe he wrote a song for her. (Go ahead, check it out on YouTube.) All these Americans are missing is the World Cup title, and they could take care of that on Sunday. “It’s cool we’ve completely written our own story,” Cheney said. “Maybe we’re not the favorites. Maybe people doubted us. But we have pure hearts and determination, and we believe in each other so much.” And no one is prouder than the members of that ‘99 team. “How could you not be proud of way they fought and found a way against Brazil?” DiCicco asked. “We have a chance here to be the first country to win three World Cups. We think the team is in good hands.”

Underclassmen Top Prospect Elite Camp, which identifies the best performers from the National Underclassmen camps in each grade at each position. The camp will be July 23-24 at the University of Oklahoma. Gordon, who was an All-Ardmoreite first-team selection as a junior, will work as a defensive back at the camp. He’ll also head to Arkansas and North Texas camps before the season starts. “I feel like I’ll get a lot of exposure to be in the top 15 at my position,” Gordon said. Offensive lineman Tre’von Lawson, the only returning starter on the o-line for the Tigers, has also been to camps at OSU and North Texas, with another trip to North Texas coming up July 29 for an

invitational camp. Lawson, a rising senior, has shed 35 pounds since last season, which could help him contribute at defensive tackle as well. “It helps being able to move my feet faster,” Lawson said, citing his blocking and footwork as the most improved aspects of his game. “I wasn’t as quick or fast as I wanted to be.”

Man held in slaying says he hears voices NEW YORK (AP) — A man accused of kidnapping, killing and dismembering an 8-year-old boy who asked him for directions was ordered Thursday to undergo a psychological evaluation after his lawyer told a judge that his client might be mentally ill. “He has indicated to me that he hears voices and has had some hallucinations,” said the attorney, Pierre Bazile. Levi Aron, 35, pleaded not guilty to charges of murder and kidnapping as prosecutors said he lured Leiby Kletzky to his home Monday after the little boy got lost while walking home from an Orthodox Jewish day camp. Video cameras captured the fateful encounter between the two on a Brooklyn street, while Leiby’s mother waited anxiously just a few blocks away. Detectives later found the boy’s severed feet, wrapped in plastic, in the man’s freezer, as well as a cutting board and three bloody carving knives. At his arraignment Thursday afternoon, Aron appeared disheveled, confused and pale. He stayed quiet during the brief court proceed-

ing. As he was led out of the courthouse holding cells, other inmates screamed obscenities at him. He was held without bail, placed on suicide watch and protective custody after his lawyers said they feared he could do harm to himself.

Police and prosecutors said Aron, a clerk at a hardware supply store, has confessed to suffocating the boy with a bath towel, but they continued to work on verifying his horrific and bizarre explanation for the boy’s death.


Feds want ‘don’t ask, don’t tell’ halt stayed SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — The federal government asked the U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals on Thursday to reconsider its order last week demanding an immediate halt to the enforcement of the ban on openly gay troops in the military. The Obama administration filed the emergency motion in response to the appeals court’s decision last week to lift its stay of a lower court’s ruling last year that found the ban, known as “don’t ask, don’t tell,” unconstitutional. Department of Justice lawyers said in the motion that ending the ban now would pre-empt the “orderly process” for rolling back the 17-year-old policy as outlined in the law passed and signed by the president in December. “Congress made quite clear that it believed the terms of the transition were critical to the credibility and success of this historic policy change, and to ensure continued military effectiveness,” according to a statement from the Justice Department. “Any court-ordered action forced upon the military services so close to

the completion of this repeal policy pre-empts the deliberate process established by Congress and the President to ensure an orderly and successful transition of this significant policy change,” the department said. Last year’s ruling stems from a lawsuit filed by the Log Cabin Republicans against the Department of Justice. The gay rights group persuaded a lower court judge to declare the ban unconstitutional after a trial that put the Obama administration in the position of defending a policy it opposes. “It is sad and disappointing that the government continues to try to prevent openly gay and lesbian Americans from serving in our armed forces,” Log Cabin Republicans attorney Dan Woods said. “It is particularly disappointing because the President has stated that Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell “weakens” our national security and signed the repeal bill with great fanfare and yet today’s filing with the Ninth Circuit is a lastditch effort to maintain this unconstitutional policy, Woods added.


Governor calls for rain prayers OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Gov. Mary Fallin wants Oklahomans to pray for rain on Sunday. Fallin said in a statement on Thursday that the ongoing drought has helped contribute to more than 140 wildfires this year, resulting in the loss of dozens of homes. Fallin earlier in the day signed an executive order issuing a burn ban in 45 counties. The statement also notes that a lack of rainfall has led to significant hardships in the agricultural sector. Secretary of Agriculture Jim Reese says farmers across the state are suffering because of the Dried, cracked ground is seen near a Pray for Rain sign dry conditions. on Saturday in Hough.
