Molz sees ‘miracle’ with new shot for stroke victims By Yvonne Miller Following a shot in the neck and only a five-minute wait, stroke victim Jim Molz felt such marked physical improvements he described it as “a miracle.” A lifetime resident of the Hardtner and Kiowa, Kan., area, Jim had a stroke in June 2011. The stroke left him with poor balance, difficulty speaking, little use of his right arm and a dragging right leg. Jim is one of the hundreds of stroke The Alva Review-Courier / Newsgram is published Wednesday by Martin Broadcasting Corp. 620 Choctaw St. Alva, Oklahoma 73717 Lynn L.

and traumatic brain injury (TBI) patients who’ve seen marked improvement in their mobility and renewed independence from this new shot. They walk more steadily, read more easily, concentrate better, speak more clearly and have regained use of once-rigid limbs. This is thanks to Boca Raton, Fla., physician Dr. Edward Tobinick. He patented a method for delivering the anti-inflammatory medicine, etanercept, to the brain. It’s a 25-milligram shot injected in the back of the neck. The patient is then dipped backward at a 45-degree angle for five minutes. This allows the drug to enter the brain and spinal area through the cerebrospinal venous system and instantly fights the inflammation. Dr. Tobinick’s therapeutic technique is getting praise around the world as a “radical breakthrough” in the treatment of chronic neurological dysfunction. Published in numerous scientific and medical journals around the world, Tobinick’s technique is also beneficial for treating sciatica and Alzheimer’s disease. Treatment and Results Jim’s companion Judy Rockett was in

the room with him during the injection. Judy told how after the five minute wait, the doctor asked him how he felt. “Real great,” Jim answered with a strong voice and then moved his right arm. “The doctor, the nurses, Jim and I were all crying,” Judy said of the lifealtering moment. At 1:15 a.m. the next morning, Judy said Jim awoke and said something was wrong with his leg. Turned out it was that pins-and-needles feeling a person gets when a limb has “fallen asleep” and begins to awaken. Now back home in Hardtner, Judy said, “Jim’s speech was perfect immediately after the injection. It’s slightly less perfect now, but much better than before. He has lots better balance and is really picking up his leg better. “Jim’s physical therapist said his whole body is changed – it’s not rigid.” Several years ago, Jim underwent knee surgery, had a hip replacement last year and survived heart surgery. “This is a good year. We’re getting better,” Judy said. See Miracle Page 26

BJCC Citizens’ Juvenile accuses co-worker in assault Advisory Board By Marione Martin A Cherokee man has been charged in Alfalfa County after a juvenile complained he had been assaulted by a co-worker. According to documents on file, the juvenile contacted Alfalfa County Deputy Blake Trekell Feb. 6 to report being battered while working at Cherokee Sale Barn. The juvenile said he was counting cattle in the pens when Clinton Horner, 32, began calling him names, telling him to quit and go home or he was going to make him. The juvenile said he told Horner to shut up and leave him alone. Horner responded by coming over and pushing him against a fence while forcing his forearm across

the juvenile’s neck, choking him for approximately 10-15 seconds. The juvenile then pushed Horner off and left the business. On Feb. 8 Deputy Trekell spoke with Horner, who is 15 years older than the alleged victim. In a post-Miranda interview, Horner said the juvenile had been “talking s---“ and that he walked over and grabbed his shirt by the collar, pushing him and telling him to leave. Trekell showed Horner a picture of the juvenile’s neck and Horner stated there was no way he did all that. Horner refused to make a written statement. Horner has been charged with assault and battery, a misdemeanor.

to Meet

By Lynn L. Martin Several items are on the agenda for the quarterly meeting of the Bill Johnson Correctional Center (BJCC) Citizens’ Advisory Board scheduled for noon on Thursday, Feb. 21, in the conference room at the prison. Warden Janice Melton will provide a facility update and Mike Culbreath will give a chapel update. The chapel committee will meet before the advisory council to discuss funding for a security camera system and other chapel needs from the remainder of the chapel fund. Richard Ryerson will summarize the first meeting for the advisory board and likely make a recommendation that the remaining chapel funds be used to create a foundation for the chapel. Kyle Hughbanks will chair the advisory board meeting.

Burlington cheerleaders invite Elks fans to join them Thursday for a 2:10 p.m. pep rally in the gym with a 2:30 p.m. “honk-out” as the teams leave for the area tournament at Cleveland. The Lady Elks play Bluejacket in the quarterfinals Thursday at 6:30 p.m. A win has the Lady Elks playing Friday at 1:30 p.m. and then at 6:30 p.m. Saturday.

Board Meeting Business Burlington Principal Shane Feely’s contract was renewed for the 2013-14 school year. The school office won’t be the same without longtime secretary and board minutes clerk Jan Hill who is retiring/resigning as of June 30. Jan held that secretarial position 19 years. She

Those subjects and much more were addressed as the Burlington Board of Education met for their regular February monthly meeting Tuesday morning. Members present were Terry Graham, Roger Allen, Aaron Smith, Beth Guffy and Allison Armbruster. Others present were Superintendent Elliott, Principal Shane Feely and Minutes Clerk Jan Hill. After running unopposed, longtime board member Roger Allen begins a new five-year term. Elliott presented Allen with a certificate of election. The board re-organized with all officers remaining the same – Terry Graham, president; Beth Guffy, vice-president; and Allison Armbruster, board clerk. Following a 40 minute executive session, the board approved Feely’s contract and Hill’s retirement/resignation. The board approved a transfer of funds from the concession account to the following accounts: Elementary Teachers – $835.68, Academic Teams – $751.70, Junior Class – $1768.36, Music – $271.36, Student Council – $419.06, Accelerated Reader – $414.35 and Athletics – $366.50. Encumbrances, change orders and warrants for the General, Building, Child Nutrition, Transportation Bond and Building Bond Funds were ap-

proved. The January Activity Fund report was approved. The board approved renewing participation in the Cooperative Education Project for the 2013-2014 school year. The board also approved continuing the contract with Municipal Accounting Systems for 2013-2014 and discussed the school calendar for 2013-2014. They also discussed the sale of surplus vehicles by purplewave.com. Elliott’s superintendent’s report included: • the upcoming local livestock show on Saturday, Feb. 23, the Alfalfa County Stock show Feb. 26-27, the NW District Livestock Show in Enid March 6 – 11, and the Oklahoma City livestock show March 15 – 23; • the All-Conference game at 6:30 p.m. and shooting contest at 5 p.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 26, at Ringwood; the OSSBA District 2 Meeting at Woodward on Thursday, April 18; and the new school board member workshop in Oklahoma City on Feb. 22-23 or in Tulsa on May 3-4. Elliott also discussed school security. Principal Feely’s report included an update on the basketball play-offs as given at the top of the story. He said the junior high basketball teams finished their seasons with records of 10-2 for the boys and 6-6 for the girls. Feely also mentioned the Junior High Academic Teams are participating in bowls and triads. He said JonReid Ross was chosen as All-Conference at the ONWAC Banquet.

2012 Darwin Awards By Lynn L. Martin (I did not write this, but I’ve seen the Dawin Awards for many years on the Internet. The Darwin Awards refer to actions that are pariticularly stupid that usually result in loss of life. The source newspapers or wire services are cited.) Nominee No. 1: [San Jose Mercury News]: An unidentified man, using a shotgun like a club to break a former girl friend’s windshield, accidentally shot himself to death when the gun discharged, blowing a hole in his gut. Nominee No. 2: [Kalamazoo Gazette]: James Burns, 34, (a mechanic) of Alamo, Mich., was killed in March as he was trying to repair what police describe as a “farm-type truck.” Burns got a friend to drive the truck on a highway while Burns hung underneath so that he could ascertain the source of a troubling noise. Burns’ clothes caught on something, however, and the other man found Burns “wrapped in the drive shaft.” Nominee No. 3: [Hickory Daily Record]: Ken Charles Barger, 47, accidentally shot himself to death in December in Newton, N.C . Awakening to the sound of a ringing telephone beside his bed, he reached for the phone but grabbed

instead a Smith & Wesson .38 Special, which discharged when he drew it to his ear. Nominee No. 4: [UPI, Toronto ]: Police said a lawyer demonstrating the safety of windows in a downtown Toronto skyscraper crashed through a pane with his shoulder and plunged 24 floors to his death. A police spokesman said Garry Hoy, 39, fell into the courtyard of the Toronto Dominion Bank Tower early Friday evening as he was explaining the strength of the building’s windows to visiting law students. Hoy previously has conducted demonstrations of window strength, according to police reports. Peter Lawson, managing partner of the firm Holden Day Wilson, told the Toronto Sun newspaper that Hoy was “one of the best and brightest” members of the 200-man association. A person has to wonder what the dimmer members of this law firm are like. Nominee No. 5: [The News of the Weird]: Michael Anderson Godwin made News of the Weird posthumously. He had spent several years awaiting South Carolina ’s electric chair on a murder conviction before having his sentence reduced to life in prison. While sitting on a metal toilet in his cell attempting to fix his small TV set, he bit into a wire and was electrocuted. Nominee No. 6: [The Indianapolis Star]: A cigarette lighter may have triggered a fatal explosion in Dunkirk, Ind. A Jay County man, using a cigarette lighter to check the barrel of a muzzle-loader, was killed Monday night when the weapon discharged in his face, sheriff’s investigators said. Gregory David Pryor, 19, died in his parents’ rural Dunkirk home at about 11:30 p.m. Investigators said Pryor was cleaning a 54-caliber muzzleloader that had not been firing properly. He was using the lighter to look into the barrel when the gunpowder ignited. Nominee No. 7: [Reuters, Mississauga, Ontario ]: A man cleaning a bird feeder on the balcony of his condominium apartment in this Toronto suburb slipped and fell 23 stories to his death. “Stefan Macko, 55, was standing on a wheelchair when the accident occurred,” said Inspector Darcy Honer of the Peel Regional Police. “It

appears that the chair moved, and he went over the balcony,” Honer said. Finally, THE WINNER!!!: [Arkansas Democrat Gazette]: Two local men were injured when their pickup truck left the road and struck a tree near Cotton Patch on State Highway 38 early Monday. Woodruff County deputy Dovey Snyder reported the accident shortly after midnight Monday. Thurston Poole, 33, of Des Arc, and Billy Ray Wallis, 38, of Little Rock, were returning to Des Arc after a frogcatching trip. On an overcast Sunday night, Poole ‘s pickup truck headlights malfunctioned. The two men concluded that the headlight fuse on the older-model truck had burned out. As a replacement fuse was not available, Wallis noticed that the .22 caliber bullets from his pistol fit perfectly into the fuse box next to the steering-wheel column. Upon inserting the bullet the headlights again began to operate properly, and the two men proceeded on eastbound toward the White River Bridge . After traveling approximately 20 miles, and just before crossing the river, the bullet apparently overheated, discharged and struck Poole in the testicles. The vehicle swerved sharply right, exited the pavement and struck a tree. Poole suffered only minor cuts and abrasions from the accident but will require extensive surgery to repair the damage to his testicles, which may never operate as intended. Wallis sustained a broken clavicle and was treated and released. “Thank God we weren’t on that bridge when Thurston shot his balls off, or we might be dead,” stated Wallis “I’ve been a trooper for 10 years in this part of the world, but this is a first for me. I can’t believe that those two would admit how this accident happened,” said Snyder. Upon being notified of the wreck, Lavinia (Poole ’s wife) asked how many frogs the boys had caught and did anyone get them from the truck? Though Poole and Wallis did not die as a result of their misadventure as normally required by Darwin Award Official Rules, it can be argued that Poole did in fact effectively remove himself from the gene pool.

Woman charged in contraband incident at Crabtree Correctional By Marione Martin A Lawton woman is facing several felony charges in Alfalfa County in connection with an alleged attempt to smuggle items into James Crabtree Correctional Center (JCCC) at Helena. According to the affidavit on file, on Feb. 11 about 8 a.m. JCCC employee Brad Bailey was sitting in his stateissued vehicle waiting for his windows to thaw out before driving out of the parking lot at Crabtree. He said he saw a maroon four-door car approach the facility from the roadway just north of the staff parking lot. Bailey said that a white female exited the vehicle holding a packing wrapped in gray duct tape. The woman saw him and immediately got back in her vehicle and sped away. Bailey called JCCC control center with a vehicle description and began following. He said he contacted the Helena Police Department who then forwarded the information to the Alfalfa County Sheriff’s office. Bailey said he kept constant visual contact with the vehicle until it could be intercepted. He stated that he saw a package leave the vehicle through the passenger side that looked like the one he saw the female holding at the prison. The package was discarded just north of the Alfalfa-Major County line on SH 58. About 8:23 a.m. Alfalfa County Deputy Blake Trekell learned from radio traffic about the incident and drove to intercept vehicle. When the two vehicles were reported to have crossed

the Major County line, Deputy Trekell requested and received permission from Major County to continue into their jurisdiction. Trekell was then notified the vehicle had been pulled over at the intersection of SH 58 and US 412. Trekell arrived at the intersection and spoke with Major County Sheriff Steven Randolph who said Bailey, also at the scene, was completing his statement. The red Mercury Grand Marquis was occupied by an adult female in the front seat and a juvenile male in the back passenger seat. The driver was later identified as Ramona Lisa McGuire, 33, of Lawton, and she said the child was her son. The vehicle was registered to Jose Lopez of Oklahoma City. Sheriff Randolph and Bailey went back to the location where Bailey saw the package discarded while Trekell spoke with McGuire. After reading McGuire her Miranda rights, Trekell talked to her about the incident. She maintained that she knew nothing about why she had been pulled over. Trekell spoke to the child in the backseat who said he had been sleeping and didn’t know what was happening. Trekell could see gray duct tape in wads in the front passenger floorboard of the car. He could also see several cell phone packages. The package retrieved by Sheriff Randolph contained two small baggies of a green leafy substance that later field tested positive for marijuana. Each baggie contained about 12.5 grams. There

were also five small baggies of a synthetic substance, four baggies containing tobacco and rolling papers and three flip style cell phones with chargers. The package was wrapped and bound with gray duct tape. McGuire was placed under arrest and the Department of Human Services (DHS) was contacted to take the juvenile into custody. Randolph and Trekell began collecting evidence from the vehicle. They found four empty packages that had contained a synthetic drug commonly called spice, two empty prepaid cellular phone packages commonly referred to as “go phones,” several wrappers from rolls of duct tape, and sim card packages with the cards removed. McGuire’s phone was also seized. During transport to the Alfalfa County Jail, McGuire said she wanted to cooperate and began talking about three packages. She said she didn’t know what was in one of them because another person had packaged it. When Trekell asked what happened to the other two packages, McGuire said they were within a couple of city blocks of the other one. Trekell contacted JCCC; Chief of Security Robert Denton and another employee, Ed Mayfield, went back to the original location and eventually found the other two packages. Trekell went to that location after dropping McGuire off at the jail. At the location he was directed to two packages in the ditch that were about 12 by 6 inches shaped like a cube and bound with duct tape like that found in the car. Inside the packages, Trekell found tobacco, synthetic substances, a cell phone and charger. He was able to match up the number of empty synthetic substance packages from the car with the amount found inside one of the packages. Also the cell phones found in the packages matched up with the empty cell phone packages and sim card packages. In a post-Miranda interview, McGuire explained that the vehicle she was driving had been purchased in Oklahoma City and the person selling it was to mail them the title and had not done so See Contraband Page 26

Waynoka School Board welcomes new board member By Alex Cole Congratulations were in order Monday night as Waynoka’s newest board member, Andy Ferguson, took the oath of office. After his swearing in, board members voted to convene in executive session to discuss employment of a superintendent, due to Superintendent Peggy Constien’s contract ending in June. The special meeting’s agenda was short – after reconvening, members voted and approved agenda

item six – the reorganization of the board. Clint Olson was voted president with Donnie Miller as vice president. The last agenda item – to approve or not approve the contract with the Oklahoma State School Board Association to assist with the superintendent search – was tabled. “Right now we are still in the midst of a superintendent search,” said Olson. After the meeting adjourned, Fer-

guson provided a brief statement. “I’m here to help the kids and do what I can do for the school system, and keep it financially sound.” Ferguson’s full statement can be heard at www.youtube.com/ watch?v=PCfu641u8DI.

Now that he has increased mobility, he can more easily exercise to get stronger. His physical therapist recommended innovative new equipment. Road That Led to Recovery This road to recovery all started when the couple went to Wichita recently. While Jim waited in the car for Judy at an appointment, he read the Wichita newspaper and saw an article about Dr. Tobinick’s treatment. They were both so excited about the treatment, Judy called Tobinick’s Institute of Neurological Recovery on her cell phone and had the appointment set before they traveled home from Wichita. The doctor told them that Jim was the first Kansan he treated. From November

From Page 14

2010 to July 2012, Tobinick’s Institute gave entanercept injections to 617 stroke patients and 12 TBI patients. Of that total, more than 80 percent saw improvement to their walking and less spasticity. Over 85 percent experienced improved motor function and other improvements. Dr. Tobinick said results of the shot are long-lasting. His patients first treated in 2010 continue to enjoy improved mobility and cognition. Entanercept is better known by it’s brand name, Enbrel. The drug has proven effective in neutralizing TNF, the chemical that causes inflammation in the body. Enbrel has Food and Drug Administration approval to treat rheumatoid arthritis and psoriasis. Because the therapy’s “off-label” use

of etanercept is not yet FDA approved, this treatment is not covered by Medicare or most insurance plans. The injection and follow-up visits cost Jim $4,800 (and of course travel expenses.) Tobinick hopes Enbrel’s makers will use his research to seek expanded FDA approval so the treatment can be more affordable and accessible. Stroke and TBI patients receive only one injection, at the most two, so rarely see any of the possible side effects of etanercept. Dr. Tobinick recommends a second shot if patients saw some improvement and want more. Jim is so pleased with the results, he’s decided to have a second shot Feb. 28 to see if he experiences even greater improvements.

contraband had occurred on Feb. 10 on several different cellular devices from within JCCC. She said she didn’t get to speak to her husband, George McGuire Jr., very much but mostly spoke to a man named Craig. She was instructed to go to

Oklahoma City from Lawton and meet with an African American female named Lawanda whose husband is an inmate at Crabtree who goes by Dre. She said she picked up the woman and while on the way to the tobacco store, Lawanda packaged up the package first found by officers. She claimed that she did not know what was in it. She said she got to Helena at approximately 4 a.m. and waited until 7:30 a.m. when she drove to the prison and waited for their call to throw the packages over the fence. She said she was scared and didn’t want to but that her husband told her to or they would get hurt. McGuire has been charged with attempting to bring contraband drugs – marijuana into a jail/penal institution, attempting to bring a cell phone in a penal institution and child neglect. All three are felonies. Also on Feb. 12, McGuire was charged in Major County with transportation of an open container of alcoholic beverage.

Kiowa City Council approves purchases, a start on demolition, water conservation By Yvonne Miller Bowling alley demolition, water conservation in an emergency and city purchases were some of the dominant items covered at the February meeting of the Kiowa City Council. In the absence of Mayor Brandon Farney, councilman Bill Watson conducted the meeting with all other members present: Brian Hill, Russel Molz, Brandon Poland and Mark Lambert. City Administrator Nathan Law, City Clerk Marlo Rugg and City Attorney Laurel McClellan also sat at the table. Bowling Alley Demolition Demolition of the dilapidated bowling alley building, deemed unsafe and a nuisance, has been a topic of council discussion for over a year. The city budgeted funds in 2013 for demolition. Law said before soliciting bids for demolition, the council needs to produce a standard for the bids. The administrator said a rough estimate for a demolition project review is from $7,000 to $14,000. Council agreed that is too high. The council approved Law to obtain engineering services for an amount not to exceed $5,000.

Planning Commission Garage Issue At previous council and Kiowa Planning Commission meetings, the issue of someone expanding their garage that involves city property was discussed. Law said the understanding is that existing non-conforming users can be alleviated, but not expanded. The garage can be rebuilt up to the property line. However renovation cannot at all extend on to the right-of-way, according to code. Emergency Water Rates Resolution An ordinance received council approval regarding emergency water rates. This change in code language allows council to implement and enforce emergency water rates to reduce water consumption in case of an emergency. More City Business Regarding capital improvement projects planning, the council selected the planning commission as a review group. Some of the big ticket items of capital improvement projects Law listed are: streets; the city water system hydraulic model; and a utility capital costs and rate study. Law said the city needs a financial adviser on these expensive projects. The general consensus of council

members is they are most concerned over the water issue. They approved monetary spending for non-working water hydrants. Kiowa’s swimming pool filter needs to be replaced. The council voted to hire United Industries and its contractor, Jim’s Water and Woods of Hutchinson, at a cost of $13,660. Law addressed the city’s need to recodify the city code. Councilman Lambert said, “We’ve been working on this since I began. It’s ridiculous. I move we have the league get it done.” The council agreed to spend $2,500 and have Kansas League of Municipalities do the recodification. The council agreed to purchase the following items: gravel – (200 yards at $8/yard), $1,600; trash truck – costs to fix, no estimate yet; packers – a pneumatic packer not to exceed $3,000; dumpsters – six for a cost of $3,812; electric meters – pallet of 96 for $1,200. Police Chief Steven Johnson said everything is running smoothly with the police department. He said there’s been some theft of items off the backs of trucks. Johnson said that new police officer Warren Howerter is living in Kiowa and on duty and a new Barber County undersheriff is going to live in Kiowa. Law said the city’s police repeater is installed and programmed to communicate See Kiowa Page 42

E911 report and sales tax revenue resolution for EMS approved by Alfalfa commissioners By Roger McKenzie An update on the progress of E911 implementation in Alfalfa County and the official approval of a new split of county sales tax funds allocated to Emergency Medical Services (EMS) was part of Tuesday’s meeting of the Alfalfa County commissioners this week. Cherokee Chief of Police David Butler told the commissioners that work is nearing completion. A March 6 meeting is planned for the E911 board, composed of city and county representatives and representatives from each of the county’s first responders units (fire departments). Work is underway remodeling the Cherokee City Hall and mapping is nearing completion. No definite start-up time was com-

mitted to, but expectations are that the system could be up and running by April 15, if not sometime before that. The new split of county sales tax funds was approved in a county-wide election this past November. Passed by an almost three-to-one margin, its changes went into effect in January, but the actual sales tax revenues are just now being received by the county. A resolution on Tuesday was passed to formalize the agreements reached among the parties involved in the division of the EMS share of the sales tax revenue so that each party will receive its proper share. That split approved by voters did not change the 55 percent share going to the county’s EMS, but the agreements reached did change the way that 55 percent was divided. Tuesday’s resolution makes that division formal. It lasts for a year and will have to be renewed each year until the next time the sales tax division is up for change. Alfalfa County EMS’ share of the EMS pie will shrink to 66 percent from 75 percent. That allows each of the county’s nine first responders to receive three percent of the pie, up from two percent – an increase of fifty percent. The emergency reserve fund will receive the other seven percent. In a related matter, the commissioners approved reappointing Merry Gaff to the Alfalfa County EMS board. The Goltry Fire Department got the county’s approval to purchase a new fire truck chassis after commissioners opened the only bid received for it. The bid from Circle D Truck Sales in

Abilene, Texas, for $82,454 includes some add-ons and freight that bump up the $58,685 base price. Twenty-seven road crossing permits totaling $20,750 in fees were approved. District 1 had 12 permits totaling $7,000. District 2 had eight permits totaling $4,000. District 3 had seven permits totaling $9,750. An oil and gas lease with Canyon Land for approximately 9.9 acres, at the site of the Alfalfa County Fairgrounds, was approved. The lease calls for a $1,000 per acre signing bonus and a 3/16ths royalty share on any finds. The actual drilling site is in the southwest corner of the 640 acre section that includes the fairgrounds. The commissioners approved changes to the 2013 employee hand book and the county drug policy. The handbook changes primarily concerned the dress code and sick leave. No extra days were granted in sick leave. However, six of the 12 days a year (one per month) that are earned by employees can now be counted as personal days. No more than two personal days per month may be taken. If personal days are not used, they will return to being six days and can be carried over. The drug policy changes are minor ones made to update the policy with state and federal regulations. A private property easement for District 1 was approved. In other business, the commissioners approved minutes of their previous meeting, as well as maintenance and operations warrants and blanket purchase orders.

USOC sounding out 35 cities for 2024 Olympic bid By Stephen Wilson, AP Sports Writer The U.S. Olympic Committee is looking for cities interested in bidding for the 2024 Summer Games. The USOC sent letters to the mayors of 35 cities Tuesday to gauge interest in a potential bid to bring the Summer Olympics back to the country for the first time since 1996. “Our objective in this process is to identify a partner city that can work with us to present a compelling bid to the IOC and that has the right alignment of political, business and community leadership,” USOC CEO Scott Blackmun said in the letter. Following failed bids by New York and Chicago for the 2012 and 2016 Olympics, the USOC is taking a measured approach before moving ahead with a new campaign and wants to be sure it has a good chance of winning. “This letter does not guarantee that the USOC will bid for the 2024 Games, but rather is an initial step in evaluating a potential bid,” the committee said. The letters were sent to mayors of

the country’s 25 largest cities — including New York, Chicago and former Olympic host cities Los Angeles, Atlanta and St. Louis — and 10 others. The USOC has also said it would consider whether to bid for the 2026 Winter Olympics, although the bigger and more prestigious Summer Games would seem to be the preference. The U.S. hasn’t hosted the Summer Olympics since Atlanta in 1996; Salt Lake City was the last American city to stage the Winter Games in 2002. Los Angeles, Dallas and Tulsa, Okla., are among the cities that have expressed interest in hosting the 2024 Games. New York, Chicago and San Francisco have either bid or expressed interest in bidding in the past and could also get in the mix. New York finished fourth in the international bidding for the 2012 Olympics, which went to London. Chicago suffered a stinging first-round exit in the vote for the 2016 Games, which were awarded to Rio de Janeiro. Chicago’s defeat was blamed partly on the revenue-sharing feud between the USOC and IOC. The two sides

have since resolved the dispute and signed a new agreement that clears the way for a U.S. bid. USOC leaders have also worked hard to improve the committee’s standing in the international Olympic community. “Now more than ever, we need to use the power of the Olympic and Paralympic Games to encourage our youth to be active and engaged in sport,” Blackmun wrote. Other cities around the world that have expressed interest in bidding for the 2024 Games include Paris; Rome; Doha, Dubai; and Durban, South Africa. The IOC vote on the 2024 Games will be in 2017. The USOC is skipping the bidding for the 2020 Olympics. The three candidates for those games are Istanbul, Madrid and Tokyo, with the IOC to vote Sept. 7 in Buenos Aires, Argentina. The USOC said Tuesday it has 2½ years to decide whether to submit a 2024 bid and would do so in an “economically efficient way.” See Olympics Page 53

Olympics

While New York and Chicago were selected by the USOC after a domestic bid process that cost up to $10 million, the USOC said it would embark on any new bid through “a thoughtful but more efficient process.” The USOC letter sought to remind the mayors of the huge undertaking involved in hosting the Olympics. Blackmun noted that the operating costs would be in excess of $3 billion, a figure that does not include venue construction and infrastructure costs. The city would also require 45,000 hotel rooms, an Olympic village for 16,500 athletes and officials, an international airport and a workforce of up to 200,000, the letter said. “The games have had a transformative impact on a number of host cities, including Barcelona, Beijing and London,” Blackmun said.

Investigators puzzle over Sequoyah Co. fire death SALLISAW, Okla. (AP) — Sequoyah County authorities say it is unclear what started a fire that killed a man in his home. The 66-year-old man died in the blaze on Monday and Sheriff Ron Lockhart says neighbors who saw smoke entered the house to find the victim on fire.

Lockhart said the remains were in the kitchen and there was no other damage in the home. The sheriff says there was no apparent source of the fire. Sparks Medical Center emergency department director Dr. Lee Johnson says speculation by officials that the victim spontaneously combusted would

be tough to confirm. Johnson says such instances can usually be explained by the presence of an igniting factor and a flammable element. He says the cases often involve someone having a sudden, immobilizing health event while smoking.

Witness: Okla. suspect planned Cathouse killings OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — The former girlfriend of a man accused of the shooting deaths of a prostitute featured on HBO’s “Cathouse” series and three other people says she overheard him planning the shootings. Karinne Sanders testified in Oklahoma County District Court Tuesday dur-

ing a preliminary hearing for 34-year-old Denny Edward Phillips. Sanders says the shootings involved drugs and money. Phillips is charged with first-degree murder in the November 2009 death of 22-year-old Brooke Phillips, who had worked as a prostitute at the legal Moonlite Bunny Ranch brothel near Carson

City, Nev., that was featured on HBO. She was not related to Denny Phillips. The other victims were 22-year-old Milagros Barrera, 25-year-old Jennifer Ermey and 32-year-old Casey Mark Barrientos. Each of the victims was shot and stabbed and their bodies were set on fire.
