artists trained by Lyric Theatre and Disney Theatrical Productions, at no cost. Each school will receive performance rights, education support materials and guidance from the teaching artists. Baron said the program features a professional development focus, through which participating school teachers partner with Lyric teaching artists to learn how to produce, direct, choreograph and music

direct, culminating in their first 30-minute Disney KIDS musical at their school. As a capstone to the experience, Lyric Theatre will host a Student Share Celebration in which each school performs one number from their show on the Civic Center Music Hall stage in downtown Oklahoma City for an audience of students, teachers, family and community members. Using the unique world of musical theater, Disney Musicals in Schools helps to foster positive relationships between students, faculty, staff,

parents, and the community. Students and teachers work in teams, developing the wide spectrum of skills needed when producing a piece of musical theater, including: critical thinking, problem solving, ensemble building, communication, self-confidence, and interpersonal skills. “This program will inspire creativity and innovation in the classroom and celebrate how the arts help kids learn in every subject by keeping them engaged and focused,” Baron said. “Most importantly, the

students and teachers will be able to share, with newfound confidence, their progress with parents and guardians at the wonderful production the students have created. Thank you to Disney Theatricals for their investment in the future of arts and learning in Oklahoma.” Applications for the program can be downloaded at www.LyricTheatreOKC.org. Disney Musicals in Schools was launched in 2010 in response to Disney Theatrical Production’s concern that under-resourced public elementary schools were not afforded equitable access to the arts. After successfully offering the program in New York City schools, Disney Theatrical Productions began partnering with organizations in other communities across the United States. Disney KIDS musicals, created in partnership with Music Theater International (MTI), are 30-minute musicals designed for elementary school performers and have been adapted from the classic Disney films “101 Dalmatians,” “Aladdin,” “The Aristocats,” “Cinderella,” “The Jungle Book,” “The Lion King” and “Winnie the Pooh.”

Stone told the council that he is discussing “reasonable completion times” with Crossland. “I hope we can get this done within six months,” although 180

days “gets us into winter” and could extend completion of the work into early next year, he said. Another street project, repaving a mile and a half of Hefner Road between Lakeside and Pennsylvania, will be advertised anew because of a technical glitch. After reviewing the bids, the city’s legal adviser recommended rebidding that job “to avoid any appearance of impropriety,” Stone explained. In addition, resurfacing of streets east of Pennsylvania north and south of Britton Road also will be let

for bid. That project and the Hefner Road resurfacing – which will include total reconstruction of the dilapidated south-side eastbound lane for the half-mile between Lakeside Drive and May Avenue – will be advertised for bids by the end of August or early September, Stone said.

In a way normally reserved for the beginning of basketball practice, Mount St. Mary opened the Willis Alexander era with a special first practice. Football teams across the state could begin fall practice last Monday, but the Rockets decided to get underway as fast as possible. They began their 2018 season at 12:01 a.m. Monday for their Midnight Madness

first practice. Alexander, the former coach at Douglass, replaces Derek Perkins who left for a graduate assistant position at Texas Tech University. Mount St. Mary hosts Christian Heritage on Aug. 31 to open the 2018 season. Another Fridayland coach opening his first practice is Bryan Pierce at McGuinness. The longtime assistant takes over for Justin Jones who moved on to Norman North. “There’s a little bit

of a transition but things are going well so far,” Pierce said. Like most schools, McGuinness conducts a summer conditioning program to help athletes stay in shape over the offseason. “We’ve had great attendance in our summer program so guys are coming in shape,” Pierce said. “That helps us start right away to work on installing our offense and defense.” The Irish are set to compete in a scrimmage this Friday at Lawton MacArthur.

VOLLEYBALL ROUNDUP

Antlers open at Norman tourney By Jason Jewell Sports Editor After reaching the Class 6A semifinals last season, the Deer Creek volleyball team is looking for another shot at a state title. “We had a good conditioning program over the summer and we have a couple holes to fill,” coach Lisa Pol-

covich said. “I’m confident we’re going to have a good season.” Deer Creek competes at the Norman tournament this Friday and Saturday to open the 2018 season. Last year, the Antlers jumped out to a 21-0 start and were ranked No. 1 in the state for the first time in program history.

“We’re pretty athletic so defense should be our strength this season,” Polcovich said. Leading the way this year in the starting lineup are three seniors in Maicee Morgan, Trinity Sargent and Rylie Farr. Junior Teagan Polcovich also returns as a starter.

SCHEDULE Fri., Aug. 10-Sat., Aug. 11 at Norman Tourn. Tuesday, Aug. 14 at Stillwater, 6 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 16 vs. Piedmont, 6 p.m.

in Tuttle. The Panthers went 21-16 in 2017 and made the Class 6A regional semifinal, where they lost to Bixby. Success this season, Scott said, hinges on improvement on defense.

“We need to improve defensively,” the coach said. “Our fielding percentage was not very good. The other thing we need to do is get the ball in play on offense.” Anchoring the infield at shortstop is junior Korbie Krase who recently committed to Ottawa University in Kansas. Other leaders include junior utility player Emily Shuck, sophomore catcher Georgia Patterson and sophomore pitcher Izzy Magrini.

Cox premiers senior smart home Technology includes virtual reality, Wi-Fi cat Cox Communications and 4 Corners Homes partnered with senior living experts today to showcase a new era in digital living that provides older adults with the ability to age in place in their own homes. According to AARP, nearly 90 percent of adults age 65+ prefer growing old in their current home rather than move to an assisted living or retirement community. The “Connected Independence” senior smart home event was held in a 4,000square-foot model home built by 4 Corners Home located in The Reserves at Still Meadows in Edmond. The by-invitation-only event included senior living and technology experts alongside internet-enabled smart devices demonstrating how seniors and their family members can use new technology to live safely and independently at home while providing their adult children with peace of mind. “Smart home technology can help fami-

lies avoid the wrenching decision and the expense of moving an aging parent to an assisted living facility,” said Kristin Peck, vice president of public affairs Cox Communications. “This technology coupled with a powerful internet connection like that delivered through Cox High Speed Internet helps ensure seniors can continue their daily routine while maintaining – and even enhancing – their quality of life in their own home.” The event featured national and OKCbased senior living innovators, businesses and experts. More than 50 interactive demonstrations, powered by Cox Communications’ broadband network, ran simultaneously throughout the home, including: •Virtual reality – the Rendever virtual reality platform allows seniors to “travel” to their favorite destinations. •Telemedicine sessions – Trapollo telemedicine services let doctors diagnose and treat seniors from the comfort of their

home. •Smart cooking devices like a WiFi slow cooker and Sous Vide showcased by food blogger, Whitney Bond - https://whitneybond.com/. •Voice-activated devices make life easier for seniors, allowing them to interact with their smart home without the worry of controls, dials or switches. •Mobile apps – CK Life allows families to prescreen and select from a local network of qualified caregivers to provide a number of caregiving services from the convenience of a smart phone. •Cox Homelife Products including Smart Window and Door Sensors, Smart door locks, thermostats, lightbulbs and more. •LiveFine Automatic Pill Dispenser – Helps seniors stay on schedule with their medications. Helps prevent forgotten dosages or mixed medications. •Clarity P300 Handset Landline Telephone – Makes sounds louder and easier to understand.

Seniors can call people by pushing a photo button. •GeniCan – Garbage can that scans items as they’re thrown away. The GeniCan app builds a shopping list based on what needs to be replaced, and schedules home delivery through Amazon Dash. •Additional stations included a Wi-Fi vacuum, Wi-Fi cat (Joy for All Orange Tabby Cat), electronic pet feeder, electronic fork that tracks eating habits, as well as Smart Door locks and video cameras, glass break sensors, water/flood sensors, motion sensors and other safety devices. “By connecting healthcare providers, caregivers and families to innovative care services through the smart home environment, families can prolong the quality of life at home and lower healthcare costs without sacrificing peace of mind,” Peck said, adding that reliable high-speed internet is essential for multiple devices to work properly at the same time.

Red Earth Art Center exhibits ‘Favorites’ Downtown Oklahoma City’s Red Earth Art Center is home to a small, yet impressive permanent collection of over 1,000 pieces of contemporary art and historical artifacts. The collection includes artwork by some of the nation’s most acclaimed Native artists – many with a backstory that features strong ties to their Oklahoma roots. Since its founding nearly 40 years ago, generous patrons have gifted and loaned many noteworthy pieces to the permanent collection of the non-profit art center. “A Few of our Favorite Things,” currently

on view through October 31, features the artwork and biographies of 17 artists whose creations have been gifted to the Red Earth Art Center. The exhibit includes original paintings by Spencer Asah, James Auchiah, Jack Hokeah, Stephen Mopope and Monroe Tsatoke - members of the famed University of Oklahoma Kiowa Six (previously known as the Kiowa Five). During the mid-1920s, the Kiowa artists participated in a special program overseen by Oscar Jacobson, director at the University of Okla-

homa’s Art Department. The Kiowa Six are considered significant in the development of Native American painting by bridging the era of Ledger Art to flat-style Southern Plains painting style synonymous with early Oklahoma Native painters. While they weren’t the first Native Americans to be successful in the international mainstream art world, their careers proved inspirational to may Native artists in the 20th century. “A Few of our Favorite Things” features a blend of both contemporary and

traditional artworks by artists both living and deceased. Featured in the show are art pieces by Barthell Little Chief, Troy Anderson, Merlin Little Thunder, Woody Crumbo, Tillier Wesley, Archie Blackowl, Amado Pena, George Beach, Robby McMurtry, Micqaela Jones and Ben Nelson. The art pieces featured in the Red Earth Art Center show were donated or loaned to the organization over the years by John and Diane Culbertson, Dr. Mark Everett, Nancy J. Granum, Nadine Holloway, Beth Barnes Lott, Dr. Dan

and Sissy Tubbs, Mary Gilmore McCaffrey and Dick and Lucee Wallace. The Red Earth Art Center, next to the historic Skirvin Hilton Hotel in downtown Oklahoma City and hosts a diverse and changing schedule of art and historical exhibitions. It is custodian of a permanent collection of fine art, pottery, basketry, textiles and beadwork – including the Deupree Cradleboard Collection, one of the finest individual collections of its kind in North America.

OICA urgers voters to remember the children in upcoming Elections By Joe Dorman Oklahoma Institute for Child Advocacy CEO

A

historic number of Oklahomans voted in the 2018 Oklahoma primary elections. Regardless of your party affiliation or political beliefs, it was great to see an active and engaged citizenry getting out and voting. For the majority of elected positions, the primary elections determined who each party’s nominee will be for the Nov. 6 general election. In races where candidates did not break the 50 percent threshold, however, there will now be a run-off election between the two top vote-getters on Aug. 28, just a few weeks away. At that time we will see seven runoffs for the statewide ballot on the Republican ticket, a runoff for the Gubernatorial election for the Libertarian Party, a race for the Democratic ticket with Oklahoma Corporation Commission, state and federal legislative races and many county positions. The Oklahoma Institute for Child Advocacy (OICA) hopes that each voter will cast a vote that is informed on each race, and that children’s issues help guide those decisions. We have been working with partner organizations to recognize 2018 as the Year of the Child in Oklahoma, and that means we want elected officials who will consider the needs of our youngest state residents as they make their policy decisions going forward. Oklahoma’s rankings for child wellbeing, unfortunately, range from mediocre to truly dismal.

Joe Dorman is the CEO of the Oklahoma Institute for Child Advocacy. He encourages people to get out and vote on Aug. 28 and Nov. 6.

The only way we can improve the state for the better is by creating more opportunities for our children, both through services provided and personal responsibility from parents and adults who are involved in their lives. OICA staff worked very hard to prepare a legislative scorecard for issues voted upon by state senators and representatives this past session, along with a candidate questionnaire which was answered by a majority of those running for office. This might not sound substantial, but it is very difficult to get candidates to put themselves on record for issues in elections. Those completed surveys are located at OICA.org under the legislative tab for your perusal. OICA’s ask of every voter before the August and November elections is simple: please go to OICA.org, review these candidate surveys, and compare how each candidate says they would work for Oklahoma’s

children. Help us hold our elected officials accountable, reward those who are fighting for our children, and question those who have not taken the time to answer a short survey about their plans in office. We have kept the opportunity open for candidates to still send in their answers and we hope some of them who have refused to answer will still submit their ideas. We also ask our friends in the media to take into consideration these responses prior to making an endorsement of a candidate. We know many factors go into these decisions, but we hope that those interested in Oklahoma’s children and their future will factor these candidate surveys into those endorsements. We also ask that you, the voters of Oklahoma, present candidates with questions about what they will do for the children of our state if elected. Most importantly, please vote on Aug. 28 and again on Nov. 6!

Oklahoma City and Kigali City, Rwanda are sister cities. The Institute for Economic Empowerment of Women’s PEACE THROUGH BUSINESS program, which has been educating women in Rwanda for 12 years, and Sister Cities International OKC, Inc. hosted an event at the Petroleum Club recognizing 19 women from Rwanda and Afghanistan and their teams of mentors and hosts who shared their knowledge with these women in business. The international women have businesses that range from a pasta factory owner to fashion designer, from cake producer to an OBGYN. The event held in their honor raised over $5,000 for scholarships, ensuring more women can join the over 700 graduates that have benefitted during the program’s first 12 years. “Sister Cities was honored to host a reception honoring these incredible ladies,” Mary Blankenship Pointer, president of Sister Cities International OKC, said. “The program told the story about each of the mentors, mentees and hosts.” “We heard powerful stories of how each lady followed their dream to have their own business. There was not a dry eye at the end of the program.” Dr. Terry Neese, founder and CEO of IEEW, said it was an honor for the PEACE THROUGH BUSINESS women entrepreneurs from Rwanda and Afghanistan to have the opportunity to meet Oklahomans who want to be helpful to global business women. “The program changes not only the lives of our graduates but also the lives of Oklahomans as they hear their stories of grief and hardship that culminate, ultimately, in victory as independent, contributing business leaders,” she said.
