Voters pass $61.5M bond • Administrators react

• Michael Dicks wins Position 1

By Silas Allen

By Silas Allen

Stillwater school district officials expressed relief Tuesday night after the overwhelming passage of two bond proposals totaling $61.5 million. Stillwater voters passed a $2.5 million bond issue, the smaller of the two proposals, with 73.74 percent of the vote. The larger proposal, totaling $59 million, passed with 73.6 percent of the vote. By law, both proposals needed more than 60 percent of the vote to pass. The centerpiece of the bond package is the construction of two new elementary school buildings to replace Highland Park Elementary and Will Rogers Elementary. The new Highland Park will be built on the eastern outskirts of Stillwater, at the corner of East Sixth Avenue and Drury Road. The new Will Rogers will be built on the existing site, adjacent to the existing building. District officials expect students to move into the new schools in December 2012. Stillwater Superintendent Ann Caine said the district took a chance by proposing such a large bond issue nearly double the $31 million bond issue passed in 2007.

Storm of the year II?

Although she lost Tuesday’s school board race by the narrowest of margins, school board candidate Casey Ashley said Tuesday night she wasn’t sure if she would ask for a recount. According to unofficial election returns, Ashley lost her bid for Stillwater Board of Education Position 1 to incumbent Michael Dicks by five votes Tuesday. Dicks garnered 2,276 votes to Ashley’s 2,271. Results do not become official until they are certified Friday. Ashley said she planned to take time to consider the option of requesting a recount. No matter the outcome of the election, Ashley said she still intends to

stay involved in the school district. Ashley is president of Highland Park Elementary PTA. “I’m not going to drop involvement just because I didn’t get this board position,” she said. “They’re going to see my face. They’re going to know who I am.” Dicks said he plans on getting back to work at the school board’s Feb. 15 meeting. Dicks said his highest priority is moving forward with a $61.5 million bond package Stillwater voters approved Tuesday. The bond issue would go to fund a number of projects around the district. Chief among those projects is the construction of two elementary schools to replace Highland Park Elementary and Will See ➤ Board, page A3

Thomas takes judge’s oath

By Anita Pere

The second powerful winter storm to hit Stillwater in scarcely a week is bringing more blowing snow, high drifts and sub-zero temperatures. By morning, 5 inches of snow had fallen in Cushing, the nearest town that had reported snowfall to the National Weather Service in Norman, NWS meteorologist Forrest Mitchell said. A few more inches will fall before the snow stops this afternoon, he said. The snow started to fall at about 10 p.m. Tuesday, a few hours later than forecast. A bitter north wind blew at about 14 mph this morning, with gusts reaching up to 20 mph in the early morning hours. After the snowfall stops, Stillwater will still have blowing snow and an arctic Chase Rheam/ freeze.

Judge Kathy Thomas was sworn-in last week, but she took the judge’s oath again in front of a full court room Tuesday. She is the newest special district judge in Payne County. Thomas took the oath Jan. 31 before a massive snowstorm blew into Stillwater. She was scheduled to be sworn-in Feb.1, but last week’s blizzard closed the courthouse for two days. “Those were actually my first few days of being a judge. As I was sitting at home by a fire with my coffee, I thought, ‘ya know, I can do this,’” she said. All that changed Monday, “with 300 docket cases and five TV cameras,” she said. Thomas presided over several criminal dockets and dealt with media representatives who came to see Oklahoma State basketball player Darrell Williams appear in her courtroom on rape charges. Payne County’s other three judges have offered to help ease her transition, she said. See ➤ Thomas, page A3

Cushing chief: Officer justified in shooting CUSHING – A Cushing police officer who fired his weapon at a suspect was justified in shooting, Cushing police Chief Terry Brannon said. The incident happened at La-Ze L Motel at 1027 E. Main St. Police said a man ignored police orders to submit to arrest at a Cushing motel Friday, got into his car and drove at Officer Bill McCarty. Brannon said the officer was in


imminent danger of being harmed or killed. McCarty fired his gun one time striking the driver in the hand. The man was able to elude officers on icy streets but was later nabbed in a backyard and treated at Cushing Regional Hospital. Marion Lynn Deal, 39, was arrested on complaints of assault with a dangerous weapon, possession of a firearm after a former felony conviction, possession of

Shelter overflows during storm By Silas Allen

A Stillwater emergency shelter was out of beds in the men’s dormitory area Tuesday night due in part to the approach of a winter storm that dumped several inches of snow overnight. Holly Smith, program director of Mission of Hope, said the 10 beds in the homeless shelter’s men’s dormitory were full Tuesday, and the shelter had begun housing men on air mattresses in the shelter’s living room. “We had some people come in last night,” she said. “Right now, we have four people in overflow.” During last week’s round of winter

➤Storm Continued from page A1 perature Thursday morning will be minus 6, with a windchill 15 degrees below zero, Mitchell said. Thursday should warm up a bit. Temperatures are expected near 30 that day, and the weekend will bring temperatures in the 50s. Next Monday and Tuesday might feel like spring — the high those days will be about 60, Mitchell said. Perkins police Chief Robert Williams said travel in his town wasn’t too bad this morning, but he still advises people to stay indoors if they can. “If they do get stuck in one of these snow banks, that could be dangerous,” he said.

➤Thomas Continued from page A1 “I think that shows there’s a cooperation in this county that makes it a great place to practice law,” Thomas said. Her husband, Steve, and their two kids, Evan, 11, and Claire, 9, came to Tuesday’s ceremony. Thomas said her mother came last week, but didn’t return for Tuesday’s redo. “(My parents said) we love you, we’re proud of you, it’s going to snow, we’re not coming,” Thomas said.

weather, the 10 men’s beds and the six beds in the women’s dorm were all occupied, she said. Although the shelter often sees more use during foul weather, Smith said the traffic at the shelter is generally unpredictable. “It really just depends,” she said. “We never know.” Stillwater Mobile Meals, a service that delivers food to shut-ins, canceled today’s deliveries due to the weather, said director Carolyn Hunger. Generally, she said, if Stillwater Public Schools are cancelled, the service also cancels its deliveries for that day. Because the service’s drivers are volunteers, Hunger said, she tends to be cautious about putting them on the

If you must go out, dress for the weather and carry a cell phone, said Chris West, spokesman for the Oklahoma Department of Public Safety. It’s also a good idea to have blankets and a flashlight in your car, plus a full tank of gas. Carol Robinson, a police dispatcher in Yale, said State Highway 51 had been plowed this morning, but snow was still falling and blowing. She discouraged travel, also. According to police scanner traffic, there was an injury wreck on Interstate 35 near mile marker 172 in the northbound lanes at about 9 a.m. Other details were not available by press time. For up-to-the-minute information on closings, visit

road in inclement weather. “It would cause more injury, I think, than good,” she said. Hunger said she can typically anticipate service cancellations a few days before they happen. When she expects a cancellation, she said, the service’s drivers notify clients ahead of time so they can plan accordingly. If schools remain closed longer than a few days, she said, the service generally tries to restart deliveries as safely as possible. “The thing about our clients is that they are at home, and so they are capable of providing food for themselves, just not on a long-term basis,” she said. “If this extends more than two to three days, we do try to take care of that.”

3 percent cuts to common education in this legislative session. The district saw budget cuts last year due to a combination of decreased revenue and cuts in state funding. District officials have anticipated similar cuts this year. Ashley said she was also pleased to see the passage of the bond issue. Many parents in the district had been concerned that the two bond proposals would

pass by a narrow margin, or not at all, Ashley said. In the end, the smaller of the two proposals passed with 73.74 percent of the vote, and the larger proposal passed with 73.6 percent of the vote. “What does that say about the Stillwater community and its level of dedication to its children and its school district?” she said. “It says we worried for nothing.”

Ashley said she was especially pleased to see the passage of the bond issue in light of Fallin’s predictions of budget cuts. The bond issue includes funding for a number of maintenance and renovation projects. If the bond issue had failed, Ashley said, those projects would likely have gone undone. “It was really good to see Stillwater take care of its own,” she said.

the ceremony Tuesday. W. Keith Thomas, her late father-in-law, practiced law in Payne County for several years. Thomas was an assistant district attorney for 15 years. She prosecuted juvenile cases and felony and misdemeanor crimes. As judge, she will preside over criminal dockets, preliminary hearings and other criminal proceedings. “I think she’s well-deserving and she’ll do a great job. She’s a great public servant,” District Judge Phillip Corley said. Thomas received the Oklahoma Bar Association’s Hicks Epton Law Day Award in 1999 and was president of the Payne

County Bar Association in 2006. She has been active in Payne County Counseling Services, Saville Center, American Red Cross, Kappa Alpha Theta Corp. and Westwood Elementary PTA. “The kids and I couldn’t be prouder,” Thomas’ husband, Steve Thomas, said. “She’ll do a great job. And of course, we love her.”

Hudson and Assistant District Attorney Charles Rogers resigned in January to take jobs at the Oklahoma Attorney General’s Office. Debra Vincent used to work indigent defense cases, but now she’s an assistant district attorney. She will prosecute general felonies. “It’s a good opportunity for me and it’s flattering to be asked,” she said. Before she earned a law degree, Vincent was a secretary at the district attorney’s office, she said. Megan Morgan is another new prosecutor. She will handle felony drug cases. Corley was a special district judge, but he was elected district judge last fall. He ran unopposed. He took office last month.

Government Watch Stillwater City Council heard a presentation from Finance Director Marcy Alexander on the city’s budget halfway through the fiscal year. Alexander reported that sales tax was up 4.22 percent from last year but said revenue was still under the city’s high water mark year of 2008. Following Alexander’s report, City Manager Dan Galloway said this is the point in the year that city staff begins to develop a budget. Galloway said he planned to work off the assumption the city would have the same level of revenue as last year. He added that the city’s core services such as public safety and utilities will get a larger portion of that amount while non-essential services would likely be cut back. Stillwater Utilities Authority Monday accepted a $1,258,030 bid from Ferguson Enterprises of Oklahoma City for water meter boxes and lids. The boxes are part of a project partially funded by the American Reinvestment and Recovery Act - stimulus funds - to install new electronic water meters that can be read remotely. Payne County Commission opened two bids at its regular Monday meeting. The first was on a Mack truck. The second is for new radio equipment for Commissioner Jim Arthur’s district. The commissioners will consider bids on each and announce their decision at a later meeting. Stillwater Housing Authority and Community Center Board meetings for Wednesday are both closed due to snow.

➤Bond Continued from page A1 “It was a big risk,” she said. “Stillwater patrons really do support our school district.” Until the results were in, Caine said she was unsure of what to expect. Over the past two months, Caine spoke to a number of community groups, and she said she’s fielded many questions in the process. As such, she said, she had a difficult time gauging the community’s opinion of the issue. “I really couldn’t get a feel for it,” she said. “I learned in high school, you never get comfortable with an election until the final vote is in.” Will Rogers Principal Jaime Boeckman said the school’s faculty breathed “a big sigh of relief” after

the election results were in. Although faculty and staff were hopeful about the bond issue, they weren’t without their doubts. “This is what we were hoping for,” she said. In the coming weeks, Boeckman said, she expects to meet with architects to finalize designs. The Stillwater school board approved concept designs for the two schools last month, but architects are still working out details. Highland Park Principal Kurt Baze said he wasn’t surprised at the election results. Stillwater is an education-oriented community, he said, so it shouldn’t be any surprise that such a large majority of residents would support school bonds. “I’m not overly surprised,” he said. “I had faith in Stillwater.”

Our View

Voters knew bond facts It’s official – unofficially. Stillwater school district voters responded with a resounding yes when asked to extend an ongoing property tax levy to replace two elementary schools and upgrade and supply all the district’s schools. Results aren’t official until certified Friday. But the Payne County Election Board’s unofficial tallies Tuesday night put the two proposals totaling $61.5 million in the winner’s column by nearly a 74 percent margin. That’s a pretty loud yes. Not everyone said yes. While more than 3,600 people voted for the proposals, some 1,300 said no. Some who were skeptical brought their questions to the NewsPress and we published them for the pro-bond issue group to address. Stillwater Public Schools Superintendent Ann Caine and others on her team brought their answers to the NewsPress as well, addressing issues our readers raised. Whether any opinions were changed by their answers, it should not be said bond issue proponents were not forthcoming with information. That is the way it should work. Anyone registered can vote, whether they know what the heck they are voting for or against - or not. Informed voters hold the best tools to make decisions no matter which way they cast their vote. Informed voters are responsible voters. This was not Ann Caine’s bond issue, as some like to chant. It was the latest step in a plan assembled by a committee of Stillwater residents mapping the future of our school district. That committee isn’t finished. More research will be conducted; more plans made in the coming years. That committee — or a committee like it — will ask for input. Those who didn’t like this week’s bond issue might not like the next one either. Now is the time to get involved. Be part of the solution. Better ideas? Share them. And while it was not Ann Caine’s bond issue, she put her face on it. She took the speech and the proposal and the answers to groups all over town and to NewsPress readers through her guest columns. Not everyone liked the answers they received. But Caine gets a nod for putting herself out there and making the effort to present a clear and complete picture of the $61.5 million the school district wanted to spend. And now it can.

Writer balances the budget The Congressional Budget Office says the current year’s budget deficit will be a record $1.5 trillion. It also says that over the next decade we’re on track for annual deficits of “only” $768 billion. I suspect the CBO has hired Rosy Scenario to do the bookkeeping, but let’s take that number at face value. I’m now going to balance the budget, with the help of some experts. I’ll begin with things I’m most eager to cut. Let’s privatize air traffic control. Canada did it, and it works better. Then privatize Amtrak. Get rid of all subsidies for rail. That’ll save $12 billion. End subsidies for public broadcasting, like NPR. Cancel the Small Business Administration. Repeal the Davis-Bacon rules under which the government pays union-set wages to workers on federal construction projects. Cut foreign aid by half (although we should probably get rid of all of it). So far, that’s $20 billion. Oops. That doesn’t dent the deficit. We have to do much more. So eliminate the U.S. Education Department. We’d save $94 billion. Federal involvement doesn’t improve education. It gets in the way. Agriculture subsidies cost us $30 billion a year. Let’s get rid of them. They distort the economy. We should also eliminate Housing and Urban Development. That’s $53 billion more. Who needs the Energy Department and its $20 billion sinkhole? The free market should determine energy investments. And let’s end the war on drugs. In effect, it’s a $47 billion subsidy for thugs in

the black market. I’ve already cut more than six times more than President Obama proposed in his State of the Union address. His freeze of nondefense discretionary spending would save only $40 billion. John But my cuts still Stossel total only $246 billion. If we’re going to get rid of the rest of the CBO’s projected deficit, we must attack the “untouchable” parts of the budget, starting with Social Security. Raising the retirement age and indexing benefits to inflation would save $93 billion. I’d save more by privatizing Social Security, but our progressive friends won’t like that, so for now I’ll ignore privatization. The biggest budget busters are Medicare and Medicaid, and get this: the 400 subsidy programs run by HHS. Assuming I take just two-thirds of the Cato Institute’s suggested cuts, that saves $281 billion. How about the Defense Department’s $721 billion? Much of that money could be saved if the administration just shrank the military’s mission to its most important role: protecting us and our borders from those who wish us harm. Today, we have more than 50,000 soldiers in Germany, 30,000 in Japan and 9,000 in Britain. Those countries should pay for their own defense. Cato’s military cuts add up to $150 billion.

I’ve now cut enough to put us $2 billion in surplus! Can we go further? “Repeal Obamacare,” syndicated columnist Deroy Murdock said. Reason magazine editor Matt Welch wants to cut the Department of Homeland Security, “something that we did without 10 years ago.” But don’t we need Homeland Security to keep us safe? “We already have law enforcement in this country that pays attention to these things. This is a heavily bureaucratized organization. “Cut the Commerce Department,” Mary O’Grady of The Wall Street Journal said. “If you take out the census work that it does, you would save $8 billion. And the rest of what it does is really just collect money for the president from business.” As the bureaucrats complain about proposals to make tiny cuts, it’s good to remember that disciplined government could make cuts that get us to a surplus in one year. But even a timid Congress could make swift progress if it wanted to. If it just froze spending at today’s levels, it would almost balance the budget by 2017. If spending were limited to 1 percent growth each year, the budget would balanced in 2019. And if the crowd in Washington would limit spending growth to about 2 percent a year, the red ink would almost disappear in 10 years. As you see, the budget can be cut. Only politics stand in the way. John Stossel is host of “Stossel” on the Fox Business Network.

Oklahoma spirit

Jacqueline Palumberi I want to share my experience with the great Oklahoma spirit. We recently moved here to share in the spirit of God, family and country. The recent winter storm left us stranded in our neighborhood for several days. The main roads were fine due to the hard work of our city crews but they do have limited equipment to help in the neighborhoods. The owner of El Vaquero, Gustavo, was my hero recently. I saw him with his snow removal equipment for his restaurant and asked if he could help clear the intersection where I live ,especially in light of the new storm coming in. I offered to pay him but he said absolutely not. His kind deed was especially helpful as my husband has a physical problem and I might have the need to take him to the hospital. Where I moved from this would not have happened. ... Gustavo has a great Oklahoma spirit ... Wanted to share a positive. There are too many negatives in

I get the impression that Stillwater schools cannot afford to maintain our schools. The schools decay - we vote on a new bond issue. I was planning to vote until I saw the proposed Will Rogers concept drawings showing an all-glass building. It reminded me of the architectural waste of OSU's buildings built in the 80s and 90s like the glass aquarium north of the library. Over the next 50 years how much will it cost to cool and heat this all glass aquarium of a school? Maybe we will need a another bond to pay for utilities. The proposed Will Rogers concept drawings had a flat roof as far as I could tell. How about a pitched 50-year steel roof this time? There has got to be a better way for both the schools and taxpayers. Go back to the drawing board, design an energy efficient

Response “Conduct Unacceptable at a High School Game.” As I read this Letter to the Editor in the Jan. 28 issue of the NewsPress, I was overcome with many emotions. Although everyone is entitled to their own opinion, I found the criticism very biased and unfairly weighted. To judge a person or their leadership abilities based on a single expressed opinion is somewhat hypercritical. The game was definitely a much anticipated rematch and a truly heart-wrenching first half for the Glencoe High School fans, as our team was obviously not playing to their potential. I would agree that the referees did seem young and inexperienced and made inexperienced calls for both teams.

However, they obviously did not sense harassment or intimidation as it was the Glencoe team that received a technical foul and an intentional foul late in the game. Comments were made to the referees by both the Glencoe and Mulhall-Orlando coaches concerning questionable calls, as they should have. A good coach will defend his team. He will go to bat for them when he feels they are being wronged. To be limited to a single comment or gesture in a game where multiple infractions were missed by one or both of the referees is preposterous, even at the junior high level. I agree that our coach was more vocal but that, in no way, makes him irresponsible, unsportsmanlike or lacking in leadership qualities. Coaches are expected to teach players discipline, commitment, pride, competition, teamwork, how to be humble in victory, how to learn from defeat — all the qualities that represent sportsmanship. These qualities they will take beyond their high school years and use well into their adult life. At some point, they will

have to exercise their assertive quality, which is what our coach did that Tuesday night in Mulhall. What wasn't seen by everyone in the stands was the gesture of good will extended to the referees by our coach after the game. They also haven't seen our coach the administrator who works hard every day to make sure our school is safe and secure. Or, our coach the kind, soft-hearted giant who interacts with the elementary students. They don't see our coach the dad who has the best interest of his kids at heart. Or our coach the grandpa who carries his granddaughter around after the games, and our coach the family man who shows appreciation to his mom, his sisters and others who have come to support his team. Most of all, they don't see the players who admire, respect and appreciate the dedication of our coach. There are many valuable aspects of an athletic program and, in my opinion, our coach is our most valuable asset.

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Justified,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; back for season two, is worth watching By Rob Owen Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

FXâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s modern-day Western, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Justified,â&#x20AC;? returns for its second season, and once again reminds viewers of the value in investing in guest characters. This story of slow-burn deputy U.S. marshal Raylan Givens (Timothy Olyphant) makes an effort to explore the lives of its one-episode-and-out

bad guys. While most TV shows offer up straw men, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Justifiedâ&#x20AC;? gives its colorful villains more shades, more depth. The season premiere (9 p.m. Wednesday) is a little clunky as it cleans up the mess left after the first-season finale â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the sooner the show moves beyond that, the better â&#x20AC;&#x201D; but then gets on to introducing a new Harlan County crime family with a particularly ruthless matriarch,

Elton John, Paul Simon to be Rock and Roll Hall of Fame presenters NEW YORK (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Elton John recently made an album with his longtime idol, Leon Russell. Now heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll do the induction honors when Russell is ushered into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame next month. Russell and John are up for a Grammy award for their work on the joint album â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Union.â&#x20AC;? John wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be the only Rock and Roll Hall of Famer honoring the 2011 class on March 14. Paul Simon will induct Neil Diamond, and Neil Young will induct Tom Waits. Also, Rob Zombie will induct Alice Cooper while John Legend will induct Dr. John. And Bette Midler will pay tribute to Darlene Love. The induction ceremony will be in New York City and will be aired on March 20 on the Fuse network. Twitter: StwNewsPress

Mags Bennett (Margo Martindale, cast wonderfully against type). The Bennetts appear to be around for the long haul and the family includes three sons of varying degrees of stupidity, all full of criminal intent. Last seasonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s quasi-nemesis, Boyd Crowder (Walton Goggins, â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Shieldâ&#x20AC;?), continues to lurk in the shadows while proclaiming his innocence: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Just because Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve shot the occasional

person doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mean Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m a thief.â&#x20AC;? But the true star is the language inspired by the prose of author Elmore Leonard, who created the Givens character. Whether itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Raylanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s father wishing ill on another or Raylan trying to talk down a child molester, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Justifiedâ&#x20AC;? is at its most engrossing when the dialogue erupts with dark comedic force. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Now, look, normally I would

have shot you myself the second you pulled (your gun),â&#x20AC;? Raylan tells a lawbreaker, â&#x20AC;&#x153;but I am doing my level best to avoid the paperwork and self-recrimination that comes with it. Lord knows youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re the kind who makes it worth it more.â&#x20AC;? That kind of sharp writing makes â&#x20AC;&#x153;Justifiedâ&#x20AC;? worth watching.

Valentine’s Day is chance to do something nice for someone It’s almost St. Valentine’s Day. Do you have your valentines ready? In interviews with 20 people, 16 of them said what they remembered most about St. Valentine’s Day were the boxes in school. Every year, they made their own boxes to hold valentines. One remembered the box she made in fourth grade. It began as a simple shoe box. They cut a rectangular hole in the cardboard lid. Her mother made a cooked paste of flour and water and showed her how to ruffle material by hand and glue it around the box. They cut a slit in the material over the hole and pasted the flaps to the inside of the lid. She kept the box for many years. One remembered decorating his box with dried leaves and rocks. One 69-year-old man remembered an incident when he was in fourth grade in a country school. A little girl came up to him at recess and said her daddy said they didn’t have any

money to buy valentines. She said she liked him, and she kissed him for her valentine. Every year they kissed on the playground on the day the valentine boxes were opened. He married her and they’ve been married for 49 years. One remembered being sick on Valentine’s Day and not being able to go to school. She was in second grade. The teacher came by her folks’ house after school and brought the girl’s valentine box. Together, they opened the box and read the valentine messages. Then the teacher gave her a quick lesson in reading and arithmetic and was asked to stay for supper. The little girl was allowed to get out of bed and eat at the table with her teacher. She remembered that incident and eventually became a teacher. We influence others by our kindnesses. Even something as small as a valentine makes a difference.

For several years, I’ve sent and handed out store-bought valentines. Then the other day, I saw some really cute valentine stickers and decided to make my own this year. Marjorie Some of the stick- Buchanan ers are quite small, but most are big enough to cover a quarter-page of paper. I have some heavier-than-normal paper that I plan to fold like a card. I’ll put a sticker or two on the front and write a message inside. That way, each person will get a oneof-a-kind valentine. Send a valentine to someone who doesn’t expect one this year. Marjorie Buchanan is a resident of Pawnee County. She can be emailed at

Elephant Revival members â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;excitedâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; about coming back to Stillwater By Chase Rheam

Elephant Revival, a band based out of Nederland, Colo., is set to perform for the Stillwater community at Eskimo Joeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s on Feb. 12. Band members include Oklahomans Bonnie Paine and Sage Cook. Paine plays the djembe, washboard and musical saw and sings. Cook plays the electric banjo and guitar, acoustic guitar, mandolin and viola and also sings. Other members are Daniel Rodriguez on acoustic/electric guitar and banjo, Bridget Law on fiddle and vocals and Dango Rose on double-bass, mandolin, banjo and vocals. While the band claims Nederland as their home, Rose said, members have roots everywhere. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have roots all over the country, but we do have some specialized roots in northeastern Oklahoma, up in the green country near Tahlequah, where weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve all gathered time and time again over the past seven years or so,â&#x20AC;? said Rose. The group officially began in 2006, he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve gotten together through music festivals, conferences and travels all across America and the world,â&#x20AC;? he said. The bandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s self-titled debut album was released in 2008. Its follow up, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Break in the Clouds,â&#x20AC;? was released near the end of 2010. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That is our second album and we are very excited about that and looking forward to sharing it with everyPhoto Provided one on our travels,â&#x20AC;? Rose said. Elephant Revival â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Bridget Law, Bonnie Paine, The album debuted at No. 2 on iTunes Singer/SongDango Rose, Daniel Rodriguez and Sage Cook writer chart, said Rose. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; will play Saturday in Stillwater. He describes Elephant Revivalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sound as a mix. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a mix of all different styles and traditions and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s almost all original music, so we all have different song writing styles and different backgrounds and it comes together to form an amalgamation of sounds and styles and personalities to become one thing which is the Elephant Revival, which some people have been terming as transcendental folk music,â&#x20AC;? he said. He said the band has been off since December, but is looking forward to getting back on tour. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had a long break,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had a few shows here and there and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re just looking to hit the road on Feb. 3 and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to be touring the whole month of February.â&#x20AC;? The bandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s show in Stillwater will start at 10 p.m., and admission is free. Rose recalls the band playing here once before. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Yeah, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re excited to be coming back,â&#x20AC;? he said. For more information on Elephant Revival, go to

Library Shelf By Mary Leslie Stillwater Public Library

The first part of each new year is dedicated to awards and honors for something outstanding, marvelous and exceptional from the previous year. We have the Golden Globes, the Screen Actors Guild awards, the Academy Awards and the Grammys. The Association for Library Service to Children (a division of the American Library Association) also presents awards at this time. The Caldecott Medal and the Newbery Medal are one of the highest honors awarded to illustrators and authors of childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s books. The Caldecott Medal, presented every year since 1938, is named after Randolph Caldecott, a 19th century English illustrator of picture books. Books selected must have exceptional illustrations, not only for quality, but for the relationship of pictures to story. The illustrations must enhance the story and convey the meaning of the story without words. The illustrator must be a citizen or resident of the United States. The 2011 winner of the Caldecott Medal is â&#x20AC;&#x153;A Sick Day for Amos McGee,â&#x20AC;? written and illustrated by Erin E. Stead. This is a lovely story about friendship and giving. Two books won 2011 Caldecott Medal Honors: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Dave the Potter: Artist, Poet, Slaveâ&#x20AC;? by Laban Carrick Hill, illustrated by Bryan Collier, and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Interrupting Chickenâ&#x20AC;? written and illustrated by David Ezra Stein. The Newbery Medal, presented every year since 1922, is named after John Newbery, an 18th century British publisher and bookseller who made childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s literature a profitable part of the market. The award is given to the author of the most distinguished contribution to American literature for children. The 2011 winner of the Newbery Medal is â&#x20AC;&#x153;Moon Over Manifestâ&#x20AC;? by Clare Vanderpool. In her book, the author emphasizes the importance of stories for the understanding of our past, present and future. The 2011 Newbery Medal Honors go to â&#x20AC;&#x153;Turtle in Paradiseâ&#x20AC;? by Jennifer L. Holm; â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heart of a Samuraiâ&#x20AC;? by Margi Preus; â&#x20AC;&#x153;Dark Emperor and Other Poems of the Nightâ&#x20AC;? by Joyce Sidman; and â&#x20AC;&#x153;One Crazy Summerâ&#x20AC;? by Rita Williams-Garcia. The lists of all the past recipients of the Caldecott and Newbery Honors are in the childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s section of the library. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m sure you remember many of the books from your own childhood. The library tries to keep copies of each of the books in our collection. Each honoree is labeled on the spine with either Caldecott or Newbery stickers. If you need help finding the books, please ask at the help desks (or

If you realize that everybody has bad moments at times, you might be able to get past this misstep and forgive and forget. ARIES (March 21-April 19) - Just because somebody asks doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mean you have to comply with this personâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wishes. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t let anybody pressure you into loaning out something you hold dear. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) - Making demands on someone elseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time or property could put you in a bad light with those who have to work with you. You might get what you want now, but at what price? GEMINI (May 21-June 20) - Before losing your temper with someone, make sure it isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t your own behavior that is out of line. It will only make you look worse if blow over selfishly wanting your own way.

Dear Abby DEAR ABBY: My 70year-old father has asked his 40-year-old girlfriend to marry him. This will be his fourth marriage. They have been dating for a year, and she says she wants to have two or three children with him. My sisters and I are not happy at all. Our father was a horrible father when we were growing up. To say he doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like children is putting it mildly. Also, we feel he would be incredibly selfish and irresponsible to consider bringing a baby into this world at his age when he may not be around long enough to take care of the child. Do my sisters and I have a right to be upset about this? How would you suggest we handle this? -- DISGUSTED DAUGHTERS IN TEXAS DEAR DAUGHTERS: Do you have a right to be upset? You absolutely have a right to your feelings and opinions. However, as an adult, your father is entitled to do as he wishes, regardless of how you feel about his choices. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Handleâ&#x20AC;? this as gracefully as possible without shooting your mouths off unless you want to create a permanent rift. DEAR ABBY: I have been married to my wife almost 40 years. I love her dearly and she says she loves me, but when I want to hold her, she tenses up like Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m a rapist. When I kiss her longer than a nano-second, she makes noises that sound as though I have a pillow over her face. We havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t slept in the same bed in so long I

canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t remember what itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s l i k e . When I try to talk to her about it, she ignores me. How can I get her to realize how much I hurt? -LONELY AND HURT IN MIDDLE GRANVILLE, N.Y. DEAR LONELY AND HURT: Your wifeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hormones may have changed and sex may be painful for her or no longer appealing. She may be afraid that if she lets you hold her, or kiss her longer than a nano-second, it would imply she is receptive. You need to explain to her how deeply her lack of communication on this subject has hurt you. She should have discussed this with her doctor when the problem started. But if she refuses, then you should both talk to a marriage counselor. If she wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t go, go alone.

in all of your one-on-one dealings with others, especially if you have to deal with someone who is unduly hostile or argumentative. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) - The least thing you should expect is automatic compliance if you are too bossy or dictatorial with any of your co-workers. If you want a favor, ask nicely. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) - Be careful not to get drawn into the thoughtless actions of a friend. This person could draw you into a situation where youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be held equally accountable for his/her reckless behavior. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) - Stick-to-itiveness is essential if

you hope to be successful in what you attempt to do. If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not prepared to follow things through to the finish, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t start the project. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) - Be particularly attentive to any task you take on, especially those you consider to be routine. If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re mind is not on what youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re doing, you could easily have a mishap. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) - Unless you closely monitor your financial affairs or the handling of a prized possession, a mishap could occur when youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not looking. Protect what is yours.

Former Oklahoma State University women's basketball player Andrea Riley will play for the WNBA's Tulsa Shock in the 2011 season. She recently was traded from the Los Angeles Sparks to the Tulsa franchise.

Returning to Oklahoma excites new Shock guard By Chris Day

A familiar face will be on the court in Tulsa. Former Oklahoma State University women’s basketball star Andrea Riley will be playing for the Tulsa Shock next season. The Shock’s first game will be June 4 in San Antonio. The home opener will be June 10 also against San Antonio. Tulsa acquired Riley from the Los Angeles Sparks in exchange for a second-round pick in the 2012 WNBA draft. Riley averaged 3.4 points and 1 assist per game coming off the bench. She averaged 7.7 minutes of court time for Los Angeles. “... I’m excited to be in front of fans who watched me play for four years,” Riley said. Tulsa is glad to have Riley on the team, Shock President Steve Swetoha said. “I have heard nothing but great things about her on and off the court. I had a chance to talk to Andrea briefly the day she was traded and she is so excited to become part of our organization,” he said. Riley’s playing time expanded last season when the Sparks

played twice in Tulsa. In those games, Riley averaged 11 points and 14.5 minutes of playing time. “When we came back and Riley played in Tulsa, I really did not know that as many people would come out and watch like that,” Riley said, surprised by the allegiance of Oklahoma State and Tulsa fans that came to see her play. Riley said she learned a lot from WNBA veterans during her rookie season with the Sparks. “I listened to all the veterans (in Los Angeles) and they taught me a lot of things, they kept me positive and stayed in my ear,” she said. The transition from college to the pros was huge, Riley said, because all the WNBA players are former college stars. “I learned that some of the things you did in college you can’t do here. ... It was a big adjustment for me,” she said. Tulsa Shock head coach Nolan Richardson said he was

SHS swim teams win conference meet Staff report

LAWTON – Stillwater High’s boys and girls swimming teams won the Centennial Conference meet Tuesday at Fort Sill. The Pioneers rolled up 646 points to outdistance the Ponca City boys swim team which had 481. The Lady Pioneers rolled up 687 points. Lawton High was second at 306. “The kids swam well,” Stillwater High swim coach Kurt Goebel said. Mac Johnson qualified for the state meet with his third-place finish in the 100-meter butterfly. His state qualifying time was 1:09.43. The Stillwater boys and girls 200-meter medley and freestyle and 400-meter freestyle relay teams captured first place in their events. SHS’ Bailey McCullough and Clark Hattey took firsts in the 200-meter freestyle events. Stillwater’s Sydney Goad and Blair Johnson won their races in the 200-meter individual medley. McCullough also took first in the 100-meter butterfly. Hattey took first in the 400-meter freestyle as well. Goad claimed first in the girls 100-meter backstroke. Blair Johnson took first in the 100-meter breaststroke. SHS’ Lauren Terry claimed first in the girls 400-meter freestyle.

glad Riley was returning to Oklahoma to play basketball for Tulsa. “She’s a young lady who had a brilliant career in Stillwater. Now she’s back on the grounds where she had such great success and we are excited about that,” Richardson said. Oklahoma State University coach Kurt Budke said he thought the trade to Tulsa would be good for Riley. “It’s fun for her to come back to Tulsa. Andrea had great relationships with the Oklahoma State fans and fans in general in this state,” Budke said. Veterans rule in the WNBA, Budke said. The Sparks were a veteran team and Riley’s playing time was limited. A new coach and a young team will help Riley get more playing time and improve her game, Budke said. “I hope she can put more fans in the seats and keep that Tulsa franchise going,” he said. NOTES: Riley is expecting a child, Budke said. If it’s a boy, the child will be named Kurt. If it’s a girl, Katrina. “Either way she’s honoring her old coach and I appreciate that,” he said.

The postseason begins this weekend for several area basketball teams with district tournaments set Friday in Class A and B. The toughest task ahead for area teams would fall to the Frontier and Glencoe boys teams. Both squads are in the Area 3 section, which showcases five of the top 15 teams in Class A — the most of any area tournament for that classification. “I do think we have a tough Area with a lot of good teams, but if you’re good enough to get to the state tournament you’ve got to beat good teams to get there,” Frontier boys coach Bob Weckstein said. “So we never really fret about that. If you’re good enough, you’ll get to the state tournament.” Frontier is the top-ranked team in Class A, Area 3 with its No. 3 ranking, while Glencoe is also one of the five ranked teams in the area with its No. 13 ranking. “Obviously Frontier and (No. 6ranked) Hydra-Eakly are the top two ranked teams in our area, but the one that everybody is talking about now is Kiefer (ranked No. 14),” Glencoe coach John Lazenby said. “Kiefer has won 13 or 14 in a row and have just been climbing up the polls since the areas were announced.” Both area teams will host district play this weekend and both will have first-round byes — which guarantees them a spot in the regional play, though they will go to different locations. “Now I think, and I’m sure some people may disagree with me, but I feel the home court advantage in basketball is bigger than in any other sport,” Lazenby said. “Shooting in the same gym that you practice in day-in and day-out is a huge advantage. Your home fans are also more apt to come out and be at the game and obviously the players don’t have to worry about traveling. So it’s huge.” For the Frontier squad, this year is a chance to redeem a near miss from a year ago. Last year, the Frontier boys fell to Binger-Oney in a Class B area championship, 4133. “I have four seniors that know what it takes to win ball games, so I don’t have to give any big speech to motivate these guys,” Weckstein. “They got beat in the area finals last year. They were a half away from going to the state tournament, so they’re pretty hungry and they’ve been hungry all year.” Meanwhile in Glencoe, the Panthers are hoping to have put the pieces together to make a return trip to state. Glencoe returned just two key components from last year’s state qualifying team. See ➤ Area, page A14

(Answers tomorrow) Jumbles: GUIDE CARGO BEETLE PRIMER Answer: You might say that a veterinarian has this — A “PET” DEGREE


The right thought at the right moment By Phillip Alder Mark Twain said, “The difference between the right word

and the almost right word is the difference between lightning and a lightning bug.” The difference between the right play and the almost right play may be the difference between a plus score and a minus score. This deal is an example. How would you plan the play in three no-trump after West leads the spade three? The auction was quantitative and straightforward. You have seven top tricks: two spades, two diamonds and three clubs. And there is a

natural assumption that the clubs will provide the extra two winners that you need. The equally natural play is to win the first trick and lead a club to dummy’s queen. You know that if East has all four clubs, you can pick up his jack with a finesse of your 10. Here, though, when East discards a diamond, you cannot recover. How could you know that West has all four clubs? What was West’s lead? Right -- the spade three. And since you can see the two in the dummy, West has led

from a four-card suit. If he had been void in clubs, he would have had at least five cards in one of the red suits. And since length rules in no-trump, surely he would have led from that suit, not a spade. So, you should play West for four clubs by cashing your ace first. Then you can lead clubs twice through West to pick up the whole suit without loss and take two spades, two diamonds and five clubs. Always read the opening lead, then work out what else it implies -- if anything! Copyright 2011, UFS

“John, my son, is a junior and was our leading scorer last year and is again this year, while Austin Ellis is our returning post player and they both have vast playoff experience,” Lazenby said. “... We started out the season 0-2 and at one point were 3-3 and now we are 18-6. Early in the season, you could see this group hadn’t played together very much. It took us up until Christmas before we started clicking. Now we are playing pretty good ball. “If you think back, of our six losses — two to Frontier, one to Pawnee, one to Ripley, one to Mulhall-Orlando and one to Yale — all of our losses were to ranked opponents. So we’ve moved along and really gotten to gel.” But one thing is for certain with both teams. Though they may be guaranteed to play in the regional tournament, a victory on Saturday would make their road to state a lot easier. “Getting that first round bye is nice because you don’t have to play in that do or die game,” Lazenby said. “If you lose on Saturday, that means you have to win three games in regional and three games in area to advance to state. Now there have been teams that have battled their way through that, but you want to stay out of the loser’s bracket as long as you can.” Scheduled to play on Friday will be Morrison girls and boys teams in Class A, Area 1. Both teams will travel to Garber and will play the host school, with the girls playing at 6:30 p.m. and the boys game to follow. The winners will move on to face Pond Creek-Hunter on Saturday in Garber — with the girls game at 6:30 p.m. and the boys game following. In other Class A, Area 3 action, Agra’s girls will be in action at Glencoe Friday. Agra will face Glencoe at 6:30 p.m. with the winner advancing to face Olive on Saturday at 6:30 p.m., which will be followed by the boys district championship game between Glencoe and the Agra-Olive winner. The Frontier girls team — which is looking for a return trip to state after qualifying for the Class B tournament last year — will play on Friday against Prue at 6:30 p.m. at Frontier and the winner will advance to Saturday’s game against Oilton at 6:30 p.m. In Class B, Area 2, three area schools face off. Friday, Coyle’s girls will face Wanette at 6:30 p.m. at Asher with the winner facing Asher at 6:30 p.m. Saturday. The Coyle boys have a first-round bye and will face the winner of Friday’s matchup between Asher and Wanette. The district final will be held at 8 p.m. Saturday in Asher. Carney and Mulhall-Orlando are also in Class B, Area 2. The boys and girls teams will face each other on Saturday at Mulhall-Orlando — with the girls starting off action at 6:30 p.m. Both teams automatically advance to regional play. The teams that advance to the district finals automatically advance to regional play, but will be separated into the winners and losers brackets based on the outcome of the district final. The three-day regional tournaments for Class A and B will begin Feb. 17. In the case bad weather force postponements, Lazenby said the OSSAA informed them that district championship games have to be done by Tuesday — which Lazenby said could open the possibility of playing the first round games on Saturday if teams can’t travel Friday, with the finals on Monday.
