A small plane carrying Oklahoma State University women’s basketball coach and his assistant plummeted into the mountains of central Arkansas on Thursday, killing them in the second deadly air accident involving the university’s athletic program in recent years. Also killed were the pilot, who is a former state senator, and the pilot’s wife. Coach Kurt Budke, 50, and his assistant, Miranda Serna, 36, were heading to Little Rock for a recruiting trip Thursday. The singleengine plane flown by former state Sen. Olin Branstetter, 82, crashed at 4:30 p.m. about 45 miles northwest of Little Rock in the Ouachita National Forest’s Winona Wildlife Management Area. Branstetter’s

Former state Sen. Olin Branstetter and his wife, Paula, who with a son set a record for flying over the magnetic North Pole nearly 30 years ago in a singleengine stock airplane, were among those killed when their airplane crashed in Arkansas. Friends on Friday remembered Branstetter, who served one term in the state Senate from 1986-90, and his wife as avid but safe pilots who enjoyed flying as much as they loved Oklahoma State University athletics and helping others. They died in a Thursday evening crash about 45 miles west of Little Rock, Ark. Also killed were OSU women’s basketball coach Kurt Budke and assistant coach Miranda Serna.

Balanced-budget amendment fails in U.S. House BY CHRIS CASTEEL Washington Bureau ccasteel@opubco.com

WASHINGTON — The U.S. House fell short Friday of advancing a balancedbudget amendment to the U.S. Constitution, as most Democrats rejected the argument that it was the on-

ly way to get the government’s finances in order. The proposed amendment got 261 votes, but needed 23 more to meet the threshold of a twothirds majority; there were 165 votes against, with 161 coming from Democrats. The support was well off the 300 votes that a similar

“Giving up on enacting a balanced-budget amendment is not an option. “Putting a constitutional parent in the room is the right and responsible thing to do, and I am committed to carrying this cause forward. Europe and its fiscal problems continue to serve as a wake-up call for any

First ladies’ gowns take places at Smithsonian BY BRETT ZONGKER Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Dresses, china and mementos dating back to days when Americans referred to the first lady as “lady presidentress” or “republican queen” will return to view Saturday at the National Museum of American History, along with Michelle Obama’s dashing inaugural gown as a centerpiece. The new exhibition “The First Ladies” features 26 dresses and about 160 other objects ranging from Martha Washington’s White House collection to a first look at Laura Bush’s china. It’s the 10th version of the first ladies exhibit in nearly 100 years. The last one closed in October as the museum moves historic objects out of its west wing for a major renovation beginning early next year. “We knew that it would be unacceptable during the renovation time frame for the public to go two years without this popular and almost 100-year-old tradition at the Smithsonian,” interim museum director Marc Pachter said. When it first opened in 1914, the first ladies collection was the first time the Smithsonian Institution gave women a prominent place in history, he said. Every first lady since Helen Taft has followed the tradition of donating her inaugural gown to the collection. Last year, Obama gave the museum her dress designed by Jason Wu. According to the Smithsonian, the term “first lady” was first used in 1894 by President Zachary Taylor in his eulogy of Dolley Madison. Before that, a variety of other terms were used over the nation’s first 100 years. The new exhibit examines how first ladies have shaped their roles as the influence of women in society has changed and ponders what will happen when a woman is elected president. Eight dresses and at least 10 other items, including Laura Bush’s state china service, are on view for the first time or the first time in decades as the museum freshens its display and incorporates new stories. “There is no job description for first lady of the United States,” said Lisa Kathleen Graddy, curator of the collection. “Each one remakes the undefined and challenging position to suit her own interests, the needs of the presidential administration and the public’s changing expectations of women in general and first ladies in particular.” Sections of the exhibit are devoted to the first ladies’ impact on fashion; her role as the nation’s hostess; inaugurations and formal events; and the changing role over time. Madison, for example, got engaged in politics by gathering information and talking about public opinion, and Mary Todd Lincoln was criticized for her attempts at patronage. For decades, first ladies have influenced fashion, whether through popularizing colors like Nancy Reagan’s red or setting trends as with Jacqueline Kennedy or Lou Hoover, who was first to appear in Vogue magazine in a bid to promote

American-made clothes. The public scrutiny of their fashion sense is an unexpected part of the job for many first ladies, Graddy said. Curators refer to Caroline Harrison’s evening gown as “early bling.” The burgundy velvet and gray satin gown is embroidered with a floral gray pearls and steel beads. For the first time, curators also mixed in mementos and other “secondary objects” along with gowns and china, Graddy said. There’s a scrap of fabric from Lincoln’s redecoration of the White

She signed it “Charley, from Quentin’s mother,” and Charley took the book to read during his father’s 1909 inauguration ceremony, presumably to keep from getting bored. “These are the things that people save. These are the things that women especially save, and this is so much a women’s show,” Graddy said.

OSU PLANE CRASH

Crash: ‘It’s just a terrible, terrible tragedy’

I Oklahoma State University President Burns Hargis: “The entire OSU family is very close, very close indeed, and to lose anyone, and especially these two individuals who were incredible life forces in our family, is worse beyond words.”

FROM PAGE 1A

wife, Paula, 79, also was on the plane. A deer hunter saw the plane shortly before the accident. “He was having problems,” Barry Rankin said. “I thought he was flying fairly low and then I heard heavy throttling, and I thought he was trying to gain altitude. “I could hear heavier and heavier throttling. I actually looked back because I thought that it was going to come over the ridge on top of me. I heard the torquing of the engine, and then there was just a big crash and a shock wave that went through the valley.” OSU President Burns Hargis struggled with his emotions when he discussed the crash at a news conference Friday. “The Oklahoma State family is devastated by this tragedy,” Hargis said. “Our hearts and prayers go out to the families of Kurt Budke, Miranda Serna and the other victims.” The Branstetters also were prominent members of the OSU family, having both endowed academic scholarships. The accident came just two months shy of the anniversary of the Jan. 27, 2001, plane crash in Colorado that killed 10 people affiliated with the men’s basketball program. “Those comparisons and reflections will obviously come up,” Hargis said. “We pulled together then. It was a very hard time, but under the leadership of Jim Halligan and coach (Eddie) Sutton, somehow we all made it to the other side without ever forgetting. We’ll always remember, and we’ll always remember Kurt and Miranda.” Gov. Mary Fallin announced Friday that flags at state buildings will fly at half staff Monday in remembrance of the victims. A memorial service was set for 1 p.m. Monday at Gallagher-Iba Arena on the OSU campus in Stillwater.

Details emerging The Federal Aviation Administration was investigating the crash, along with the National Transportation Safety Board. The FAA said the plane crashed under unknown circumstances and that no flight plan was filed, nor was one required. NTSB officials said the investigation was in its preliminary stages. The single-engine Piper PA-28-180 Cherokee aircraft, manufactured in 1964, crashed into a mountainside near Perryville, which is about 12 minutes by air from the Little Rock airport and is in a dense forest, said Larry Miller,

Petit Jean County Headlight front page editor. Rankin, the Little Rock businessman who was hunting in the area, said he used a GPS device to guide an Arkansas State Police helicopter to the crash scene, but the remote location and thick forest obscured the crash site from the chopper until officials finally found it nearly two hours later. The plane’s nose plowed into the top of a steep ridge, creating a five-foot crater, said Mike Surrett, chief deputy criminal investigator at the Perry County Sheriff’s Department. “It’s just a terrible, terrible tragedy. Everybody down there has our prayers,” Surrett said. Branstetter, who owned the plane, was a longtime pilot. The plane that crashed appeared to be the same one he used in a wellpublicized flight to the North Pole in 1984. Branstetter was elected as a Republican state senator in 1986 and served through 1990.

OSU changed policy The university adopted an 11page travel policy after the 2001 crash in Colorado. The policy placed restrictions on the types of aircraft that can be used and pilot qualifications that are required, but school officials said Friday the policy doesn’t apply to coaches’ recruiting trips when no studentathletes are on board. In the 2001crash, a twin-engine

Beechcraft King Air 200 crashed in a field east of Denver about half an hour after taking off amid light snow. Investigators concluded the pilot was disoriented, and the plane suffered a loss of power.

A campus mourns Budke and Serna led a dramatic turnaround of the Cowgirls’ fortunes, turning a cellar-dwelling program into a conference title contender and NCAA Tournament participant. Megan Byford, who played for Budke and Serna for three years, said her coaches made an impact on her life and her teammates’. “He really cared about his players,” she said. “God was first, family was second and basketball was third. He had his priorities in line. I will always be grateful to him for the opportunities that he gave me. There are a lot of girls that feel the same way. He just gave us an opportunity to have an amazing experience and to learn so much not only about basketball, but about life.” Byford said Serna was one of the most kindhearted women that she’d ever met in her life. “She would do anything for any of us players,” Byford said. “She would bend over backward for you. She just loved life. She brought so much energy every day to practice.” Friends and colleagues of the victims, along with students, fans and other members of the OSU

community, gathered in the east lobby of Gallagher-Iba Arena, where the Cowgirls play their home games. Flowers, balloons, other mementos and photos of the coaches accompanied large banners signed throughout the day by mourners. Trevor Nutter, a junior at OSU, said he met both coaches two or three times. Nutter works for Cowboy Dining, a food service company that occasionally serves the basketball teams. Serna was “someone you would want to aspire to be,” Nutter said. “Coach Budke was just a real high-class gentleman. You don’t have to be on campus to know that it’s pretty painful.” Stan Warfield, a retired pastor at First United Methodist Church in Stillwater who signed one of the banners, was also among the people who knew both coaches. He recalled the strong faith both coaches had, along with their friendliness and kindness. “Coach Budke never met a stranger,” Warfield said. A Salina, Kan., native, Budke is survived by his wife, Shelley. They have three children: Sara, who is a student at OSU, Alex and Brett. Serna was a native of Guadalupita, N.M., and is survived by her mother, Nettie Hererra; father, John Serna, and sister, Cassandra.

Couple: ‘Very cautious, unbelievable pilots’ FROM PAGE 1A

Federal officials are investigating the crash. The airplane apparently was the same craft the Branstetters, along with their son, Jack, flew over the pole in 1984. Each of the three made a pass over the pole. “It was the same airplane,” said Don Nuzum, manager of the Ponca City Airport. The Branstetters, who lived in Ponca City, flew out of Ponca City on Thursday morning in the four-passenger plane for Stillwater, where they picked up the coaches for a recruiting trip to Arkansas, Nuzum said. Funeral services were still pending late Friday for the Ponca City couple. Olin Branstetter was 82; Paula Branstetter, whose nickname was Dusty, was 79. Both Olin and Paula Branstetter were pilots. Friends said they flew OSU coaches several times on recruiting trips. Gary Shutt, an OSU spokesman, said he had no details on how often the Branstetters flew the school’s coaches. Gene Hines, who was Paula Branstetter’s former boss and knew the Branstetters for at least 30 years, said they were safe pilots. “If you rode in the plane with them, you’d sit in the back and those two were in the front,” he said. “That was just in case anything went wrong, they’ve got two pilots sitting up there. I’m very interested in knowing what happened because they were very, very cautious, unbelievable pilots. But things happen.” The Branstetters enjoyed flying and were often at the

REACTION

Ponca City Airport, said Nuzum, Ponca City’s airport manager for 23 years. “He flies all the time, him and his wife,” Nuzum said. “It’s tragic not having him around. He was really jolly and just a happy person, him and his wife both. They were wonderful people.” They were members of the Ponca City Aviation booster club, and they flew often for Angel Flight, a nonprofit organization that flies patients with severe illnesses to doctors and hospitals across the country, he said.

‘Always there for you’ During his time in the Legislature, Branstetter was the only Senate Republican to vote for House Bill 1017, the 1990 landmark education reform and tax bill. He fought a bill in 1988 that prohibited children from riding in the back of pickups. Former Sen. Ben Brown, an author of the pickup measure, said Branstetter was “a wonderful and kind gentleman.” “I’m a Democrat, he was a Republican, and we had

those political and philosophical differences,” said Brown, of Oklahoma City. “He was just a gentle old man.” Branstetter once flew Brown in his airplane from Oklahoma City to Norman for breakfast. “He really was an accomplished pilot,” Brown said. Olin Branstetter liked to take friends up for flights and take them to unannounced locations, said Ardetha Christensen, 82, who lived three houses down from the Branstetters for 47 years. They also attended the same church, First Assembly of God. “They were servants of God and to the people that they met,” she said. “They were always there for you. They were wonderful, wonderful people. They always were upbeat, always friendly.” She said her husband, Bob, told her Olin Branstetter led the prayer during Tuesday night’s Ponca City Aviation booster club’s Thanksgiving dinner meeting. “They always asked him to pray anytime that we had

anything out there,” she said. Former Sen. Norman Lamb, a Republican from Enid who served two years with Branstetter, said Branstetter often led prayers in the Senate when the Senate chaplain was unavailable. “He was well liked across both aisles, among the Republicans and the Democrats,” Lamb said. Lamb said he spent a day with Branstetter shortly before last November’s elections campaigning for Republican candidates in Ponca City. “He knew everybody by name,” Lamb said. “It’s amazing; Ponca City’s a pretty good-sized town.” Olin Branstetter was a 1952 graduate of OSU who earned a degree in agriculture. He was a Korean War veteran who served for 12 years in the Army Reserves. He also worked in real es-

tate, insurance and as an independent oil producer. He established the Paula G. Branstetter Aviation Scholarship at OSU in his wife’s honor. Paula Branstetter was a branch office administrator for the Edward Jones investment company in Ponca City from 1988-96, said Hines, the office’s financial adviser and her supervisor. “They were two very, very special folks,” Hines said. “You’d say, ‘Dusty, how are you today?’ and she’d say, ‘Blessed, how are you?’ That’s something that will stick in a lot of folks’ memories. “They touched so many lives in Ponca City through Gideon and other things,” he said. “If anybody had a need, it seemed like the Branstetters were there. They just worked together to help other folks.”

I Gov. Mary Fallin: “The loss of coach Kurt Budke and assistant coach Miranda Serna has shocked and saddened all of us. In addition to working to reshape the OSU women’s basketball program into a top 10 contender, both coaches were mentors and role models to countless young women. ... I am asking all Oklahomans to keep the OSU community, the women’s basketball team, and the family and many friends of coach Budke and coach Serna in our thoughts and prayers as they deal with this terrible tragedy.” I U.S. Sen. Jim Inhofe: “Our hearts break for the Oklahoma State Cowboy family over this tragic loss of life. Kay and I pray for the families of coach Kurt Budke, coach Miranda Serna and the entire Cowboy family.” I University of Oklahoma President David Boren: “All of us at the University of Oklahoma extend our deepest sympathy to the families and loved ones of coaches Budke and Serna and those who lost their lives in the plane crash. Our thoughts and prayers are with them. We are saddened by this tragic loss for the entire OSU community.” I Oilman and OSU alumnus T. Boone Pickens: “I grew to know and respect coach Budke during his seven-year coaching history at OSU. His star burned bright, and his loss will sadden yet strengthen the university for generations to come.”

Witnesses describe hearing plane crash CRASH | MOUNTAINOUS TERRAIN DELAYED DISCOVERY OF WRECKAGE BY DIANA BALDWIN Staff Writer dbaldwin@opubco.com

As soon as he heard the sickening metallic crunch of a plane crashing into an Arkansas mountainside, Barry Rankin said he knew there were no survivors. “It sounded like a car dropped a great distance and crashed into the mountain,” said Rankin, a Little Rock, Ark., businessman who was deer hunting Thursday in the central Arkansas wilderness. “I knew they went directly in-

to the side of that mountain.” Rankin and other people who were in or near the Ouachita National Forest on Thursday heard the low-flying plane’s engine churning shortly before it crashed. The plane was carrying Oklahoma State University women’s basketball head coach Kurt Budke, 50, assistant coach Miranda Serna, 36, pilot and former state Sen. Olin Branstetter, 82, and his wife, Paula, 79. All four died in the crash, which occurred about 4:30 p.m. Thursday on Link Mountain in

the Winona Wildlife Management area. Rankin said there was no smoke, fire or explosion after the crash. Rankin said he used a GPS device to guide an Arkansas State Police helicopter to the mountainside, but it took about two hours for the chopper to find the crash site. “I wish there had been more daylight — maybe we would have found them an hour and half or two hours earlier,” he said.

Stillwater clergy console OSU community after loss BY CARLA HINTON Religion Editor chinton@opubco.com

Why did this happen to us — again? Stillwater faith leaders said that is the question many people in the Oklahoma State University community asked Friday after hearing about the plane crash that killed head women’s basketball coach Kurt Budke and his assistant coach, along with two other people. That the tragedy comes less than 11 years after 10 men affiliated with the men’s basketball team were killed in a plane crash is doubly hard for people to process, clergymen said. “Today has brought up a bunch of old wounds for a lot of people that were here 10 years ago,” the Rev. Stan Warfield said Friday. Tony Tuck, associate director of Baptist Student Ministries at OSU, shared similar sentiments. “The sense that I’ve gotten from everyone is one of shock, especially that this kind of tragedy would happen twice to the same university,” Tuck said. “We’ve walked this before as a university.” Warfield said he was with OSU leaders early Friday when they told Budke’s team that their coach and assistant coach Miranda Serna had been killed Thursday in a plane crash in central Arkansas. He said most of the young people who gathered to hear the shocking news had never experienced such a loss, and for many of them Budke was more than a coach — he was a mentor and father figure. Warfield, who recently retired as pastor of First United Methodist Church of Stillwater, said he spent much time with Eddie Sutton and the OSU athletic family after the January 2001 fatal plane crash, particularly because Sutton, who was then head of the men’s basketball team, was a member of Warfield’s church. Warfield said both now and then he answered questions of “why did this happen?” by encouraging

grieving individuals to turn to the Lord amid such tragedy. “I tell people God did not cause this,” he said. “Life happens — the good, the bad, the ugly happens in life. God is here to help them continue what they are called to do in life.” Tuck said he, too, has counseled students and others to call on the Lord for comfort and support. He said he is encouraging people to reach out to each other and the families of those who died. “It’s just heartbreaking, but God knows and He cares and He will be there for them during this time.” John Talley, Oklahoma Fellowship of Christian Athletes north central area director, said he also wondered why another plane tragedy occurred at OSU, so he wasn’t surprised when young people began asking him that same question Friday. “I’ve tried to listen and hug and be there for the kids. My question to them is what is your relationship to God? Life is so fragile,” Talley said. Meanwhile, the Rev. Ken Harder, pastor of St. Francis Xavier Catholic Church in Stillwater, where Budke and Serna were parishioners, said people can’t help but ask why. “It opens up an old wound for some people. Everyone kind of feels a sense of this wasn’t supposed to happen,” Harder said. “I think the question is how do we deal with it.” That Budke was a man who lived the principles of his Christian faith makes his untimely death even more tragic, Harder said. “Because of the goodness of the man and his integrity is precisely why this is so painful,” he said. The priest said in the face of heartbreaking loss, people will show support and love to the families of the people who died and to each other. “You see the finest virtues shining through in the midst of tragedy.” The Rev. Tim Walker, pastor of First Baptist Church of Stillwater, said

he cautions people not to try and “interpret” why tragedies like Thursday’s fatal plane crash occur. “Probably the most helpful thing we can do is offer each other our presence and our prayers,” Walker said. “I’m sure that this Sunday in churches in Stillwater and beyond Stillwater, there will be prayers of encouragement.” Warfield agreed. “It’s something that we will get through,” he said. “You don’t get over it — you get through it.”

site, said the small plane came over his house so close that he thought it was going to hit it. “It sounded like he was having trouble,” Hill said. “The plane was cutting out. I never heard one come that close before. It scared me because it was so close. This sucker was lower than I ever heard before. Gosh, it was low.” Hill, Rankin’s brother-in-law, said the plane came over his house at 4:30 p.m. He said he knew the rugged terrain would present challenges for rescue workers. “It is lucky it was hunting season or they may have never

found it,” Hill said. Billy Jones, a Little Rock, Ark., firefighter, said he was hunting in the area when the crash happened. Jones said it’s a popular hunting ground, but the terrain is forbiddingly rugged. Rescue workers had to use four-wheeled, allterrain vehicles to get near the crash site. Joletta Scott, who lives about a mile from the crash site in a secluded, wooded area, said, “I heard the airplane fly over really low. It sounded like a dirt bike and it kept getting louder and louder, and then the noise went away.”

Democrat rebuts policy on detainees BY DONNA CASSATA Associated Press

WASHINGTON — The chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee on Friday faulted the White House and fellow Democrats for mischaracterizing provisions in the defense bill dealing with the handling of suspected terrorists. In lengthy speeches on the Senate floor, Democrat Carl Levin delivered a point-by-point rebuttal of both the White House’s critique of the detainee policy and criticism leveled by Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., who leads the Senate Intelligence Committee. His comments came a day after the White House threatened to veto the

legislation over its requirement to hold captured terrorism suspects in military custody and language limiting the administration’s authority to transfer detainees. “The words in the committee bill are clear,” Levin said. “But they should not be exaggerated or misinterpreted.”

Constraints opposed On Thursday, the White House Office of Management and Budget issued a statement saying it supported the broader defense bill but could not accept any legislation that “challenges or constrains the president’s authorities to collect intelligence, incapacitate dangerous terrorists and protect the nation.”

Feinstein, one of several Democrats who object to the provisions, said they would impose unnecessary limits on the commander in chief’s authority. A major point of contention is the provision requiring military custody of a suspect deemed to be a member of al-Qaida or its affiliates and involved in plotting or committing attacks on the United States. The administration argues that military custody, rather than civilian, would hamper the FBI and other law enforcement agencies seeking intelligence from suspected terrorists.

Mandate questioned Levin repeatedly argued that the administration attacks ig-

Secret Service guards Cain following volley of threats BY PHILIP ELLIOTT Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Herman Cain on Thursday became the first Republican presidential candidate to receive Secret Service protection. Cain asked for the security and Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano and congressional leaders approved his request Thursday, Secret Service spokesman Ed Donovan confirmed. There have been threats against Cain, who had been experiencing a bounce in the polls, according to an official with knowledge of the situation who asked not to be identified because of the sensitive nature of the situation. The nature of the threats was unclear. Donovan would not say whether there had been threats or discuss why protection was provided. The campaign confirmed in an email early Friday that Cain was receiving federal protection. “Due to the recent surge in the polls and the large crowds of enthusiastic supporters at recent campaign events, we are appreciative of the extra level

of protection provided by these elite professionals,” the Cain campaign said in a statement. While it’s unknown whether a specific incident triggered the request, police reports show that Cain’s campaign has been the target of a threatening phone call on at least one occasion.

Nature of the threats On June 1, Cain’s campaign office in Stockbridge, Ga., reported receiving a call from someone who did not identify himself but who claimed to be a member of the Ku Klux Klan. The man said that Cain, who is black, should not run for the White House. “Tell him not to run” and “there’s no such thing as a black Republican,” the man said, according to a written statement Cain’s administrative assistant, Lisa Reichert, gave to the police. The caller did not explicitly threaten violence. The Associated Press obtained a copy of the police reports using Georgia’s open records law. Local police alerted the FBI and the U.S. Secret Service to the incident.

Secret Service protection is given to each major party’s presidential nominee but can be provided earlier if the Homeland Security Department approves a campaign’s request. When then-Sen. Barack Obama was placed under Secret Service protection in May 2007, it was the earliest ever for a presidential candidate. One of his rivals, Hillary Rodham Clinton, already had a protective detail because she was a former first lady. In the 2004 campaign, Democratic candidates John Kerry and John Edwards received their protection in February of that year as they competed for the party’s nomination. Federal law allows candidates to seek protection if they meet a series of standards, including public prominence as measured by polls and fundraising. Napolitano consulted Thursday with a congressional advisory committee made up of the House speaker, the House and Senate majority and minority leaders and the House sergeant-at-arms, the chief law enforcement officer in the House.

over 10 years. Annual deficits have topped $1 trillion in the last four federal fiscal years.

Democratic opposition Many Democrats argued that Congress has balanced the budget before, as recently as a decade ago, and could do so again. But they said a constitutional requirement would tie the hands of Congress during economic downturns, when austerity could make a recession worse. And they said forced cuts in spending would fall hardest on the poor. “The Republican plan would put our critical health care and anti-poverty program on a starvation diet, leaving vulnerable Americans with the crumbs,” said Rep. Ed Markey, D-Mass. Rep. Dan Boren, DMuskogee, one of 25 Democrats to vote for the amendment, said, “Each American’s share of the national debt today exceeds $48,000. This is more than the average household income in the state of Oklahoma. “This is simply unacceptable, and it is time to put partisanship aside and face the facts.” The agreement forged in July to raise the debt ceiling required both houses to vote on a balancedbudget amendment this year. The Senate is expected to take up a proposal in December. The White House came out against the House proposal, saying, “We do not need to amend the Constitution for only the 28th

time in our nation’s history to do the job of restoring fiscal discipline. Instead, it requires us — as members of both parties have done in the past — to move beyond politics as usual and find bipartisan common ground to restore us to a sustainable fiscal path.” Rep. Tom Cole, RMoore, said amending the Constitution was a serious

step, but that the national debt required bold action. “Congress has demonstrated time and again that it will ignore any budgetary restraints we put in place,” Cole said. “If we’re going to avoid a debt crisis that will bankrupt our children and grandchildren, we need enforceable spending restraints that only a balanced-budget amendment would provide.”

nore one element of the provision. He also insisted that the committee revised the bill to address administration demands. “In fact, it does not mandate military custody and it does not tie the administration’s hands, because it includes a national security waiver which allows suspects to be held in civilian custody,” Levin said.

Split-second decisions Administration officials pointed out that counterterrorism requires split-second decisions that leave no time for worrying about waivers. The administration also insists that lawmakers are trying to limit the military, law enforcement and intelligence agents after they’ve

Myanmar is first nation to accept Obama pledge BY MATTHEW LEE AND BEN FELLER Associated Press

WASHINGTON — In a historic opening to isolated Myanmar, President Barack Obama finally found a taker Friday for his inauguration speech offer to extend a hand to rogue states “if you are willing to unclench your fist.” The U.S. sees Myanmar as responding to the threeyear-old offer of engagement, a major shift for the former military-run dictatorship long under China’s protection and influence. Sealing better relations, Obama announced he would send Hillary Rodham Clinton for what would be the first visit by a U.S. secretary of state in more than 50 years. China immediately responded with a veiled warning to its smaller, weaker ally not to get too close to Washington. Obama said of Myanmar, “After years of darkness, we’ve seen flickers of progress in these last several weeks.” He announced Clinton’s trip on the sidelines of a summit of East Asian leaders in Bali, Indonesia, including Myanmar’s President Thein Sein. The U.S. president noted the release of political prisoners, the easing of media restrictions, a tentative opening of the political system and a dialogue between the government and pro-democracy leader Aung San Suu Kyi, whose

political party has agreed to register and participate in elections. For Myanmar, also known as Burma, better relations with the United States may mean muchneeded investment and market opportunities. It is also likely to boost Myanmar’s credibility with its neighbors in Southeast Asia, many of who view China as a growing threat. Obama’s trip to Asia this week was dominated by questions about China’s changing world role, both as an economic power and an increasingly assertive military one. In Bali, Obama heard directly from

participants in the Association of Southeast Asian Nations about worries over the South China Sea, where Beijing is increasingly asserting disputed territorial claims. Reform in Myanmar will not come overnight or easily, and many remain skeptical about a commitment to democratization. But after decades of repression and isolation under the military regime that ruled for more than half a century, leaders there seem eager to come in from the cold. Clinton will test that proposition during her Dec. 1-2 trip to Yangon, formerly known

as Rangoon, and Myanmar’s capital, Naypidaw, officials said. Myanmar has been harshly criticized and penalized by the U.S. and its allies for widespread human rights abuses, and remains a target of sanctions. U.S. officials denied suggestions that engagement with Myanmar is related to countering Chinese influence. Yet China reacted with apparent suspicion after questioning the appropriateness of greater military cooperation between the United States and Australia earlier in the week. “We are willing to see the U.S. and other Western countries improve contacts with Myanmar and make better relations,” Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Liu Weimin said at Friday’s daily media briefing in Beijing. “At the same time, we hope that both the domestic and foreign policies of Myanmar are conducive for the peace and stability of Myanmar.” The Obama administration hopes the Clinton trip will encourage broader change by a newly elected civilian government that appears to be hedging its geopolitical bets by opening up to the West. The cautious outreach to Myanmar also makes good on Obama’s promise that he would try to talk with adversaries or disagreeable regimes when it was in the U.S. national interest.

Occupy Memphis group meets tea party members BY ADRIAN SAINZ Associated Press

Leon Panetta Secretary of defense

Panetta says U.S. must keep up guard BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

HALIFAX, Nova Scotia —

U.S. Defense Secretary Leon Panetta says the United States must strengthen alliances and share the burden of global security while it deals with fiscal difficulties. Panetta told an audience of NATO allies at the Halifax International Security Forum on Friday that the United States must share its burden more effectively with its allies. The Pentagon is facing at least $450 billion in budget cuts over the next 10 years, forcing defense officials to reshape the U.S. military’s presence and priorities around the world, while not giving up America’s status as a global power. The reductions could more than double, however, if members of Congress fail to produce a $1.2 trillion deficit-cutting plan by Nov. 23. Panetta said NATO needs to develop new capabilities to keep pace with emerging threats even in an era of fiscal austerity. “These challenging economic times cannot be an excuse for walking away from our security responsibilities,” he said.

MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Occupy Memphis member Mallory Pope had just finished telling a group of about 75 tea party followers Thursday night that politicians should not allow themselves to be influenced by lobbyists and unions when she received an unexpected invitation. “It sounds to me that y’all ought to be joining us,” said Jerry Rains, a 64year-old tea party member. “You have a lot of the same goals we have, which is to take our country back.” Pope and fellow Occupy Memphis protester Tristan Tran had a lively discussion with members of the Mid-South Tea Party in a municipal meeting hall outside Memphis. The 21-year-old University of Memphis students had been invited by the tea party group to talk about the goals of the Occupy movement. The invitation was extended after a discussion between members of both groups on the tea party’s website, meeting organizer Jim Tomasik said. Occupy Memphis set up camp last month in downtown Memphis. Their numbers have ranged from a dozen protesters to 100 or more. They have had no clashes with police. Officials have said they will not evict the protesters as long as they remain peaceful. Tea party members said before the meeting that they didn’t know what to expect. Some said they were confused about the purpose of the Occupy movement. Pope gave a rundown of some of the goals of Occupy Memphis and some of her individual beliefs, in-

cluding that Wall Street executives “gambled with our economy and housing market.” Both Pope and Tran stressed that they were speaking for themselves and could not speculate on what other members think. “The Occupy movement has remained adamant about not drafting a list of demands because terrorists make demands, and we’re not terrorists,” said Pope, a graphic design student. By the end, the Occupy Memphis members and their audience — made up mostly of whites over 40 years old — reached common ground on some issues, such as their perception that the government and politicians no longer listen to and serve the people they represent. They also found some agreement in their stances against taxpayer-sponsored government bailouts and “crony capitalism,” the idea that close ties between lobbyists, businesses, and other self-serving interests can influence government officials and the exercise of capitalism. But some disagreements also emerged. Tea party

members expressed frustration with big, intrusive government, while the Occupy Memphis speakers opposed what they perceive as a corporate influence on policy.

ACTOR NOT SUSPECT IN WIFE’S DEATH LOS ANGELES — Actor Robert Wagner is not a

suspect in the 30-year-old drowning of his actress wife, Natalie Wood, and there is nothing to indicate a crime, even though the investigation has been reopened, a sheriff’s detective said Friday. “Her death was an accident, an accidental drowning,” said Sheriff’s Lt. John Corina. Officials would not say why they were taking another look at the case, although the captain of the boat where the couple had stayed blamed Wagner for Wood’s death on Nov. 29, 1981. The case’s reopening and a public call for information are the first hint that the official account may need revision. Within hours of the announcement, Corina said, several people emerged offering their recollections of what happened in the waters off Southern California’s Santa Catalina Island. But he quickly noted that nothing the agency has received so far has prompted it to change the view that there was no foul play. WORLD

CARTEL SWAY ON VOTES CLAIMED MEXICO CITY — A Mexican official said Friday that drug traffickers tried to influence elections in the western state of Michoacan, a charge already made before the voting by some of the candidates and party leaders. Juan Marcos Gutierrez, the outgoing acting interior secretary, said a drug cartel conducted “boldfaced interference” in last Sunday’s state elections. A single cartel, The Knights Templar, dominates most of Michoacan. “We cannot allow this participation by organized crime to even start trying to influence (election) results,” he said. Gutierrez said traffickers tried to intimidate voters. He also referred to a local newspaper in a city whose mayor was shot to death shortly before the elections being forced to run an ad that threatened to kill anyone who voted for the mayor’s party. The mayor, like President Felipe Calderon, is a member of the conservative National Action Party. Calderon’s sister ran for governor in the Michoacan elections, but lost narrowly to the candidate of the former ruling Institutional Revolutionary Party. FROM WIRE SERVICES

‘God forbid it happened again’ HOSE words from Oklahoma State University President Burns Hargis captured what Oklahomans, and particularly those associated with OSU, felt on hearing the news Friday that two basketball coaches had died in a plane crash. Women’s head coach Kurt Budke and assistant coach Miranda Serna were killed Thursday evening when the small plane went down in a wooded area 45 miles west of Little Rock, Ark. The pilot, former state Sen. Olin Branstetter, and his wife, Paula, also died. “The entire OSU family is very close, very close indeed,” said Hargis, struggling to keep his composure. “And to lose anyone, and especially these two individuals who were incredible life forces in our family, is worse beyond words.” Budke, 50, leaves a wife and Burns Hargis three children. Hargis said Serna, a longtime assistant to Budke, was the first in her family to attend college. “They were both just beautiful people,” he said. Of course Oklahoma State knows this sort of pain only too well. In January 2001, 10 men associated with the men’s basketball team died in a plane crash in Colorado. That the school is having to experience such pain and heartbreak again is mind-boggling. We add our condolences to those offered by Oklahomans everywhere.

Law working well If the elections held in recent months are any indication, concerns about Oklahoma’s new voter identification law were overstated. The state Election Board reports no serious headaches from any of the five elections held since Oklahoma’s new law took effect July 1. The law requires voters to show a state, government or tribal-issued photo ID. If they don’t have one, they can show another form of identification such as the voter registration card issued by their county election board. And if they show up emptyhanded, voters can still cast provisional ballots. There were 282 provisional ballots cast in recent elections, with all but 13 verified as valid. Oklahomans are glad the law’s on the books — after all, they gave it 74 percent approval at the ballot box last November.

Network nepotism NBC is gaining a reputation for hiring news correspondents more for their personal background than newsgathering ability. This week the network announced the hiring of Chelsea Clinton as a fulltime correspondent. She will be doing “Making a Difference” reports on people for “NBC Nightly Chelsea Clinton News” and “Rock Center.” Clinton joins a stable of other famous media-political offspring, including Luke Russert, Jenna Bush Hager and Meghan McCain. “The message here is that fame and parentage confer journalistic authority, rather than talent or an ability to get the story right,” John McQuaid wrote for Forbes.com. Clinton, 31, has spent her entire adult life avoiding the media, and has turned down requests for comments on her new job. It will be interesting to see how she handles her new role as a media celebrity.

Hope springs eternal Tom Guild wants to occupy Oklahoma’s 5th District congressional seat, but the Democrat’s goals and values are more akin to the Occupy Wall Street mindset than they are to the leanings of district voters. Guild overcame a difficult childhood, but he hasn’t seemed able to move on from stock liberal positions that don’t sell well in central Oklahoma. Nevertheless, Guild has thrown his hat into the ring to challenge freshman U.S. Rep. James Lankford, R-Oklahoma City. Guild would be on the same ballot as Barack Obama, which isn’t a ticket to success around here. He ran for the seat in 2010 and got 43 percent in a two-man Democratic primary race. Lankford, virtually unknown when he began his campaign, won the general election with 62 percent of the vote. Guild is a good man, but he will likely join a long list of optimistic Democrats who finish Oklahoma congressional races with less than 40 percent of the vote.

Chickasaw coin The “Chickasaw Quarter,” Oklahoma’s contribution to a special series of America the Beautiful coins, debuted this week with a ceremony in Sulphur. The “tails” side of the quarter has a scenic view of Lincoln Bridge, a 102-year-old landmark in the Chickasaw National Recreation Area south of Sulphur. The bridge was dedicated in 1909 to celebrate the 100th anniversary of Abraham Lincoln’s birth. The quarter marks the 10th release in a series that eventually will feature a scene from a national park or recreation area from each of the 50 states plus the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, Guam, American Samoa, U.S. Virgin Island and Northern Mariana Islands.

Advantage Oklahoma City Report after report over the years highlighted Oklahoma City’s relatively low cost of living. That’s a good thing unless you consider the reasons for it, which include economic indicators that aren’t so positive. A key component of the cost-of-living comparison has been real estate prices. When those prices go up, the cost-of-living claim is altered. In the July-September fiscal quarter, median home prices in Oklahoma City ranked second behind Denver among large metro areas in the Federal Reserve’s Tenth District. Fed economist Chad Wilkerson noted that only the homes that may offer a view of the Rocky Mountains had a higher value in the district. Good news? Certainly. But Wilkerson said it also means the cost-of-living advantage is mitigated. Still, we’ll take the higher home prices any day because they reflect economic strength.

Stooping low The Oklahoma City Council agreed this week to add sexual orientation to the city’s employment discrimination policy. Members voted after hearing from many of the residents who packed council chambers. Some of the comments were absurd. A local minister cited a New York judge who supposedly said gays commit half the murders in large cities. For that and other remarks he got a standing ovation. Then there was Councilman Ed Shadid, who sponsored the proposal. Shadid compared job discrimination against gays to Adolf Hitler’s targeting of some groups in Nazi Germany. That was way over the top. We expect better from a person of Shadid’s intellect.

Winkin’, blinkin’ and noddin’ off WASHINGTON — As the GOP candidates have been thrashing it out in debates that seem to occur every couple of hours or so, one almost misses the iconic wink that enraged or beguiled the nation a political season ago. Admit it. You miss Sarah Palin just a little: The wink, the red shoes, the pointing finger, the heckwith-ya attitude. Yes, it has come to this. It helped — a lot — that Palin was an attractive woman. A man winks during a debate for the highest or second-highest office in the land, and he’s not cute or flirty. He’s an idiot. Even so, Rick Perry could have used a little winkage when his mind blanked during a recent debate and he couldn’t recall that in which he passionately believes. Something about government agencies that Kathleen should be dismantled. Parker Having “stepped in it,” as he put it, Perry took the only exit possible and hit the late-night comedy COMMENTARY hour. If you can’t be taken seriously as a presidential candidate, you may as well be funny. Bring it! Alas, Perry wasn’t as amusing as he was comical when he appeared on the “Late Show with David Letterman.” It was rather sad seeing the Texas governor centered in a carnivalesque spotlight reciting the 10 reasons he forgot what he so ardently believes, as though they were merely forgotten lines in a memorized poem. Letterman’s writers had some swell lines for ol’ Rick, but ultimately, the act was as cringe-inducing as the flub itself. Perry seemed like a child being brought out to amuse the adults. The line between laughing with and laughing at was a tightrope stretched between mirth and pity. It is one thing to be self-effacing and to have a sense of humor about one’s self. We love that. It is another to be a clown. The thrice-elected governor of the nation’s second-largest state has earned better. Next in the parade of painful moments was Herman Cain’s floundering during an interview at the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. He was asked a simple question: Did you agree with President Obama’s handling of Libya? Libya, Libya, Libya, Gaddafi, opposition, dang, what was that thing? Anyone? Anyone? For minutes that seemed hours, Cain seemed to be shuffling through file drawers of bullet points in his brain and was coming up empty. He said he did not “agree with the way he handled it for the following reason.” “Um, nope, that’s a different one,” he said, batting away an errant thought with his hand. It got worse: “I gotta go back, see, got all this stuff twirling around in my head.” No doubt. With the sexual harassment charges dogging his campaign — and the exhausting pace of debates, book touring and speeches — Cain is surely worn out. On the one hand, we sympathize. We all have brain freezes. On the other, we don’t all run for president. Even a presidential candidate suffers no dishonor by sometimes admitting he doesn’t know an answer. Giving Cain credit to the limited extent due, he has made clear that he doesn’t know every little thing, but has promised to hire smart people who do. During a Q-and-A following a luncheon speech at the National Press Club a few weeks ago, he oddly handed off a question about his 9-9-9 tax plan to Rich Lowrie, the plan’s architect.

Not presidential material Perry and Cain are both talented men who deserve more than our contempt. Nevertheless, it has become clear that they are not now presidential material. We may indeed overlook their faults, but we needn’t excuse what are more than mere lapses. Their lack of knowledge or recall suggests a lack of depth and an absence of seriousness. We expect more from those who pretend to the throne. And though Americans admire the self-made who have experienced ordinary life, most don’t want an ordinary person to lead the country. A funny line is worth a laugh, a song may buy you lunch, but in the end, there’s no winking one’s way to the White House. WASHINGTON POST WRITERS GROUP GARY VARVEL/THE INDIANAPOLIS STAR

POINT OF VIEW | STUDY REFLECTS DIMINISHING NUMBERS

POINT OF VIEW | TEACHERS, ADMINISTRATORS CAN BENEFIT

Using technology to their advantage BY BERLIN FANG

“College cheating remains problem” (news story, Nov. 5) pointed out that cheating is becoming a growing concern at two of the state’s largest universities. Technology and the Internet are partly to blame: Fewer cases of cheating were seen in the 1990s, before widespread use of the Internet. We should remember that technology has also increased the chance for a university to catch cheaters who had been able to go undetected in the 1990s without the use of such Web-based plagiarism checking tools as Turnitin. While students can use technology to their advantage, so Berlin Fang can professors and administrators. Tools such as Safeassign and Turnitin give faculty an unprecedented advantage in detecting cheating by comparing student work with a vast amount of existing writing. Students can be reminded that their submitted work will be turned in for originality reports. Such heightened awareness helps students to focus on writing original work. Cheating isn’t a new problem that arose with increased use of the Internet. In the past, students used crib notes to cheat. They can copy from paper copies of tests and assignments. They can share test answers without getting caught. With the appropriate use of technology tools, it’s

actually more difficult for students to get an unfair advantage. For instance, a professor using Webbased tests can generate a unique set of questions for each student. It’s also easier to track the digital footprint of students with learning management systems. Technology also affords professors opportunities to teach in innovative ways. The “Sage on the Stage” model of teaching can sometimes be supplemented, if not supplanted, by alternative models. Technology can be used to help faculty cover their teaching content. Computers never tire of playing the same instructional video repeatedly until students “get it.” The same can be said about online testing. Professor Richard Trout of Oklahoma Christian University recently made this comment about online testing: “After the first exam of 83 freshman zoology students, wherein they logged out and their exam was graded and the score sent to my gradebook, I realized what a blessing it was. For the first time in my 25 years of college teaching, I didn’t have tests to grade all week long. I suddenly had more time to read, to meet with students, to go hang out in the student union, to converse with colleagues, to do more research … generally more time to do all the things a university professor is expected to do.” I encourage more educators to use technology to their advantage, instead of thinking of the good old days of teaching in which students were better behaved without the Internet.

The incidence of learning and developmental disabilities is increasing, driven by the rising prevalence in autism and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. This year, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported that nearly one in six American children was diagnosed with a learning or developmental disability in 2008. The National Academy of Sciences estimates that environmental factors cause or contribute to at least a quarter of learning and developmental disabilities in American children. Scientists have learned that the developing brain is much more susceptible to toxic substances than the adult brain, and that certain chemicals can have a profound effect on the developing brain at levels once thought safe. The learning and developmental disabilities community has been waiting a long time for protection from toxic chemicals used in commerce, our homes and workplaces. We applaud Inhofe in joining with Lautenberg to consider the Safe Chemicals Act in a productive, bipartisan manner. We anticipate Congress coming together at this critical time to pass a strong bill that protects the health of current and future generations of Americans.

Debbe Leftwich could retire with seven years of service on a $23,000 annual pension, and if she served three more years at the medical examiner’s office, it goes up to $43,000. Compare her public employment to my private-sector compensation. I worked 35 years for a major communications company. Seventeen of those were in management. The last five years, I was the coin telephone marketing supervisor for Oklahoma. My annual retirement pay is $16,058.76, including four cost-of-living raises over the 30 years I have been retired. The last increase was in June 2000. State government does not have a money problem; it has a spending problem. Last year legislators gave away more money than state income tax collected. They will spend every penny they can take from taxpayers and give it to special-interest programs. When Oklahoma’s state income tax is abolished, we’ll see our state rise to the top of the list as being the best place for businesses and families to locate. Do we have officials with the intestinal fortitude to move Oklahoma in that direction? Candidates for 2012 elections better be ready to take the bull by the horns. Oklahoma voters have seen the light how winners and losers are being determined by elected officials. At this time taxpayers are the big losers. V. Midge Sullivan, Oklahoma City

The reason any job goes beyond America’s borders is because of egregious taxation and regulation; it isn’t cheap labor. With our technology and computerization, an American worker earning a good wage can produce a better, lessexpensive product than any worker in the world. Additionally, machines are being produced every day to harvest crops that we’ve been told only the human hand could collect. Illegal aliens in our fields actually stifle this advancing technology.

HIGHER ED CYCLE

BY LINDA MODENBACH

I admit that I never used to think about chemistry. But as an advocate for the learning disabilities community, new science has piqued my interest in chemistry as it relates to the increase in learning and developmental disabilities. Take, for example, a notorious group of toxic chemicals that permeate our lives. Toxic flame retardants are used in furniture, electronics, mattresses, building materials and carpeting. These chemicals are present in more than 90 percent of Americans and are found in umbilical cord blood. They build up in breast milk. A body of scientific evidence shows that these toxins can interfere with healthy brain development, contributing to learning and behavior problems and developmental delays. Yet these chemicals were never tested for their effect on children’s brains and bodies before being mass produced and marketed. Linda Current law allows Modenbach chemicals to go on the market untested for health effects, but Congress is on the verge of passing legislation to overhaul this outdated law. The Safe Chemicals Act would assure American families that the chemicals in our products are safe — especially for the developing fetus and children. Even greater news is the growing bipartisan support in the U.S. Senate for the Safe Chemicals Act. Sens. Jim Inhofe, RTulsa, and Frank R. Lautenberg, D-N.J., recently wrapped up a series of meetings on the Safe Chemicals Act, with positive reports from all involved. The time is now for us to put commonsense limits on chemicals linked to serious disease and disability. The Learning Disabilities Association of Oklahoma is espe-

As Native Heritage Month is celebrated in Oklahoma and across the nation, an alarming fact should be highlighted: Indian Country has a shortage of tribal members becoming doctors or healers. American Association of Medical Colleges data show that the number of American Indians accepted into medical schools has substantially and steadily declined over the past eight years. In 2004, 465 American Indians applied for medical school and 202 enrolled. By 2011, those numbers had declined to 379 Margaret Knight and 157, respectively. This is troubling because the general population numbers for American Indians are climbing. The U.S. Census Bureau shows an 18 percent increase over the past 10 years. The national population today includes more than 5 million American Indians. A primary mission of the Association of American Indian Physicians is to keep Indian students in the academic pipeline so they can pursue careers as doctors, health professionals and biomedical researchers. However, several obstacles must be overcome if America is to reverse this declining trend for its first citizens.

“Indian Country” is a unique combination of isolated and remote tribal communities with pockets of urban Native Americans in large, metropolitan cities. The discrepancies make it easier to be marginalized and forgotten. Many Indian youth are simply unexposed to the dream so many Americans value — that one day they can grow up to be a doctor. To combat this problem, Indian Country needs an aggressive mentoring plan for tribal children to interact with doctors and be motivated to emulate them. Also needed is a renewed focus on STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) in schools with high American Indian enrollments. We also need a renewed commitment to raising healthy, active and physically aware children. American Indians suffer from diabetes, tuberculosis, pneumonia and influenza at far higher rates than other racial populations, so we need to teach our own citizens to be the physicians and prevention specialists. Indians respond better when their health care needs are in the hands of Native American physicians who understand their culture and value traditional and Western healing methods. Work and commitment are required to address the needs of Indian Country health and the ability to cultivate Native American physicians. This issue is paramount in our communities.

I appreciate Mike Jones’ (Your Views, Nov. 12) reply to David Boren (Commentary, Nov. 4) in which Boren insists on feeding at the tax trough for his “speDavid Boren cial interest” — himself. I agree with Jones except when he referred to obscure intellectuals. In the ambiguous studies departments where there are no answers, where all conclusions are subjective, the pseudo-intellectuals build a nest, teach liberalism and pontificate on the wonderfulness of collectivism because they are the recipients of that “share the wealth” mentality. The whole cycle is to tax the people, feed the Democratic Party, kick all the money possible into the education system and breed more little liberals who vote Democrat; then the cycle begins again. All disguised as “caring for the children,” “lifting education” or “helping the poor.” Leo Kuschnereit, Midwest City

RIGHT TO WORK EXPLAINED “Pelosi’s remarks on Boeing put focus on right to work” (Our Views, Nov. 13) says that Oklahoma’s right-to-work law passed in September 2001 banned “forced union membership as a condition of employment.” Not true. The National Labor Relations Act allows any business to unionize under its collective bargaining rules. But an employee never had to join the union — he just had to pay dues or a fee even if a nonmember. The Oklahoma law relieved the nonmember from paying any such fee. That was the effect of the law. It had nothing to do with “unionizing” a plant or factory, just as it means nothing in the South Carolina situation because it has no application to nonunion businesses (92 percent of all companies in Oklahoma in 2001). It means nothing to companies that aren’t already unionized. Steve Ditto, Oklahoma City

NEW ENERGY FUTURE While our nation continues to be economically vulnerable due to decades of inaction on federal energy policy regarding the increasing reliance on OPEC oil, some leading energy-producing states such as Oklahoma and Colorado recognize the benefits of using America’s own energy sources to provide alternative, clean fuel sources for our transportation system and economy. We are blessed these two states recognize the economic, environmental and national security benefits of the greater use of American-produced natural gas. The governors of these two states are taking bold action, as made clear by the recent announcement of a multistate initiative to add compressed natural gaspowered vehicles to state fleets across America. Oklahoma’s Republican governor, Mary Fallin, and Colorado’s Democrat governor, John Hickenlooper, see natural gas playing a pivotal role in creating a promising new energy future for America — one that will create many outstanding jobs in our country and save consumers a significant expense at the fuel pump. This coordinated effort signifies another step in the right direction to increase demand for CNG and continue the partnership with American automobile manufacturers to further develop natural gas vehicles for the American market. I commend both governors for their vision in advancing an initiative to use America’s abundance of natural gas for American consumers.

THE MACHINES ARE AFTER US “You can’t fix it — it’s broke” was the basic response I got from a clerk during a visit to a cellphone store to request testing of my new phone, which wasn’t working properly. Oh, they’ll give me a new phone as a replacement, but there’s no way to check all the possible problems in my existing unit. It was probably my cellphone service company’s fault anyway. How productive is that? In the same vein, I tried Googling “Oklahoma Fault Lines Map” and got many hits of bibliographic information, but no maps. Purveyors of Internet information just give you what they want, not what you need (like that manual in your new vehicle). We shouldn’t have to sift through the obfuscation produced by others. Those providing public information should mean what they say, say what they mean, and clearly. Too much power is in the hands of autocrats. We can’t merely throw technology at problems hoping automation will solve them. Some Silicon Valley engineers recently voiced opposition to computers in the schools. I agree. Those children aren’t acquiring computer skills, they’re just learning conditioned response. The machines are after us — and catching up rapidly. John D. Wyckoff, Oklahoma City

Avastin loses breast cancer OK HEALTH | FDA CHANGES ITS REGULATIONS FOR MEDICATION BY LAURAN NEERGAARD Associated Press

Sen. Rand Paul R-Ky.

Senator makes asthma claim BY DINA CAPPIELLO Associated Press

WASHINGTON — It was a startling claim: Air pollution has no connection to asthma, Kentucky GOP Sen. Rand Paul said on the Senate floor. But Paul, and a chart he used to make his case against the health benefits of a new federal air pollution rule, relied on some creative sourcing and pseudoscience. Paul’s chart was a graph showing air pollution declining in California as the number of people diagnosed with asthma rose. The chart attributed the data to a May 2003 paper by what was then called the California Department of Health Services. In fact, the department said asthma attacks “can be triggered by exposures and conditions such as respiratory infections, house dust mites, animal dander, mold, pollen, exercise, tobacco smoke, and indoor and outdoor air pollutants.” Paul’s real source was a 2006 paper “Facts Not Fear on Air Pollution” from the National Center for Policy Analysis, a conservative think tank.

Exaggerated or wrong That paper, by independent consultant Joel Schwartz, contends that most air pollution information from environmentalists, regulators, scientists and journalists is exaggerated or wrong. Paul cited Schwartz in his Nov. 10 remarks. “We have decreased pollution and rising incidence of asthma. Either they are inversely proportional or they are not related at all,” he said. At best, the chart suggests that air pollution alone cannot explain the rise in asthma, a chronic lung disease that inflicts approximately 34 million people in the U.S. The chart certainly can’t be used to say that air pollution plays no role in causing asthma. Dr. Richard Kreutzer, head of environmental and occupational disease control at California’s Department of Public Health, said there is evidence that some pollutants can cause asthma and even more showing that air pollution aggravates asthma in those who have the disease.

‘Probably not related’ The National Institutes of Health said last year that “recent findings have conclusively demonstrated a link between asthma and air pollution, especially ground-level ozone.” Schwartz, who now works for Blue Sky Consulting Group, discounts even studies linking pollution to asthma attacks, saying “they are probably not related.” Dan Greenbaum, the president of the nonprofit Health Effects Institute, said such arguments “miss the point.” “No pulmonary doctor has said that the primary reason for the increase in asthma is air pollution,” Greenbaum said. “The concern is that if you have asthma, we have very strong evidence that you are sensitive to air pollution.”

WASHINGTON — The government delivered a blow to some desperate patients Friday as it ruled the drug Avastin should no longer be used to treat advanced breast cancer. Avastin is hailed for treating colon cancer and certain other malignancies. But the Food and Drug Administration said it appeared to be a false hope for breast cancer: Studies haven’t found that it helps those patients live longer or brings enough other benefit to outweigh its dangerous side effects. “I did not come to this decision lightly,” said FDA Commissioner Dr. Margaret Hamburg. “Sometimes despite the hopes of investigators, patients, industry and even the FDA itself, the results of rigorous testing can be disappointing.” Avastin remains on the market to treat certain colon, lung, kidney and brain cancers. Doctors can prescribe any marketed drug as they see fit. So even though the FDA formally revoked Avastin’s approval as a breast cancer treatment, women could still receive it — but their insurers may not pay for it. Some insurers already have quit in anticipation of

the FDA’s ruling. However, “Medicare will continue to cover Avastin,” said Brian Cook, spokesman for the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services. The agency “will monitor the issue ... but has no immediate plans to change coverage policies.” A year’s treatment with Avastin can reach $100,000.

Patients disappointed The ruling disappointed patients who believe Avastin is helping to curb their incurable cancer. “It’s saved my life,” said a tearful Sue Boyce, 54, of Chicago. She’s taken Avastin in addition to chemotherapy since joining a research study in 2003. Her breast cancer eventually spread to her lungs, liver and brain, but Boyce says she is stable. “So I’m hoping the insurance company will grandfather me in to continue taking it,” she said. The Avastin saga began in 2008, when an initial study suggested the drug could delay tumor growth for a few months in women whose breast cancer had spread to other parts of the body. Over the objection of its own advisers and to the surprise of cancer groups, FDA gave Avastin conditional approval — it could be sold for such women

while manufacturer Genentech tried to prove it really worked. The problem: Ultimately, the tumor effect was even smaller than first thought. Across repeated studies, Avastin patients didn’t live longer or have a higher quality of life. Yet the drug causes some lifethreatening risks, including severe high blood pressure, massive bleeding, heart attack or heart failure and stomach and intestinal tears, the FDA concluded. In two public hearings — one last year and one this summer — FDA advisers urged the agency to revoke that approval. Genentech had argued the drug should remain available while it conducted more research, and some patients and their doctors had argued passionately for the drug. “There certainly are patients who benefit tremendously,” said Boyce’s oncologist, Dr. Melody Cobleigh of Rush University Medical Center. Hamburg said she considered those arguments but that scientifically there are no clues to identify who those rare Avastin responders would be — putting a lot of people at risk in order for a few to get some as-yet-unknowable benefit. She urged Genentech to do that research.

Most days roads in the Oklahoma City metro area are clear. But what about those days when there are layers of snow and ice? You can’t see the pavement and can hardly stay on it. What about the days like in recent past winters when the snow

in the air appears to be horizontal rather than falling vertically. This marks the fifth winter the Association of Central Oklahoma Governments has compiled a central Oklahoma snow route map for the Oklahoma City Area Regional Transportation Study area. This basically covers the highest traffic areas in the Oklahoma City metro, said Jerry Church, ACOG public information coordinator. It spans 30 municipalities, all of

Oklahoma and Cleveland County, and parts of Logan, Canadian, Grady, and McClain counties.

Changes made each winter Each winter there are changes to that map, including in 20112012. Why? Some routes are added, other removed. Some are extended, and some change jurisdiction. “Changes are made every year because some communities get

new equipment, and new resources,” Church said. “Sometimes, changes in traffic conditions can impact the priority status of some roads.”

OCCUPY PERMIT REQUIRES DEVICES

Protesters pay toilet bill, avoid eviction BY ANDREW KNITTLE Staff Writer aknittle@opubco.com

Occupy OKC protesters avoided eviction Friday after some portable toilets were returned to the group’s campsite at Kerr Park. The toilets — which are required if the protesters are to continue camping in the park — were removed Thursday due to a pastdue bill of roughly $390. Because of the loss of the toilets, Oklahoma City officials told protest organizers early Friday they could be evicted from the park unless the matter was resolved. The agreement between the city and protesters allows the group to stay overnight at the park as long as a $55-a-day permit is paid and portable toilets are on site, Assistant City Manager M.T. Berry said. In the end, protest organizer Beth Isbell paid the bill for the portable toilets, ensuring the group will maintain a presence at the park through Nov. 27. James Harris, a local attorney, paid more than $500 to cover the permit required by the city. “We’re not going anywhere,” Isbell said. Oklahoma City Police Chief Bill Citty told The Oklahoman early on Friday that protesters would likely have been forced from the park “some time during the weekend” had they not secured the permit. “They just wouldn’t be SEE OCCUPY, PAGE 14A

NORMAN POLICE TO MONITOR SHOPPERS FROM NEW TOWER BY JANE GLENN CANNON Staff Writer jcannon@opubco.com

NORMAN — Police hope

to use a newly acquired Skywatch mobile observation tower to deter crime during the holiday shopping season. The tower provides a 25foot-high observation platform, which can be manned by two officers with binoculars and radios who can get a bird’s-eye view of high-traffic shopping areas often targeted by thieves, said Capt. Mike Praizner.

The observation tower can be towed and parked in parking lots at malls or large department stores or wherever a police presence is needed, he said. “Just its presence in a parking lot will deter thieves, we believe,” Praizner said. The holiday season typically is a time when more car burglaries and shoplifting incidents occur, he said. The Skywatch tower will be used for the first time on Black Friday in the Sooner Mall parking lot, Praizner said.

A new Skywatch tower retails for about $96,000, but the agency located a slightly used “military surplus” one that was available for $7,500, including the cost of a new paint job, Capt. Tom Easley said. Easley said Homeland Security federal grant money was used to pay for it. “We got a smokin’ hot deal on it,” Praizner said. “We feel really lucky to have found it. We see it as a crime-prevention tool. It

City council members should vote on a contract at the Jan. 23 meeting. “The original goal for the time frame to open the new facility remains the spring of 2013,” Stevens said. Assistant City Manager Steve Commons said utility work is under way to increase the capacity of the water line near the pool lo-

cation at the Multi-Activity Center at J.L. Mitch Park. More water was needed to the area for the sprinkler system, Commons said. City of Edmond, YMCA and Edmond Public Schools have joined forces to build the new complex. Edmond schools will pay $10 million of the design and construction cost. The YMCA and the city will split the remaining $12 million. Plans are to build a 50-

meter, eight-lane swimming pool with seating for up to 800 spectators. The recreation center will have a family aquatic area, an elevated walking/ jogging track, a fitness center and exercise rooms. Design work for the project is being done by Crafton and Tull architectural firm. The design work costing $1.83 million will be divided by the city, YMCA and the school district.

OSBI is seeking gun in shooting of Weleetka girls BY SHEILA STOGSDILL For The Oklahoman

WELEETKA — Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation agents might attend an Oklahoma City gun show this weekend to seek information about a gun thought to have been used in the slaying of two Weleetka-area girls. “There is the possibility agents will be at the gun show,” agency spokeswoman Jessica Brown said Friday. If so, they will be handing out information seeking the whereabouts of a Glock .40-caliber handgun, Brown said. Investigators think the weapon was used in the shooting deaths of Skyla Whitaker, 11, and Taylor Paschal-Placker, 13. Their bodies were found June 8, 2008, on a dirt road near Weleetka. Families of both victims said an Okfuskee County man, Kevin Sweat, 25, was an acquaintance of Taylor’s mother, Jennifer, and that Sweat’s grandfather lives near Paschal-Placker’s home and the scene of the shooting four miles northeast of Weleetka. Joe Mosher, Taylor’s great-uncle, said a relative of Sweat’s gave investigators a receipt for the Glock pistol, which is how OSBI obtained the gun’s serial number. The OSBI has declined to com-

ment on the claims made by the victims’ relatives or whether Sweat is a person of interest. The OSBI is offering a $5,000 reward for the weapon. Brown said the current gun owner is not a suspect in the girls’ deaths. The Oklahoma City Gun Show is scheduled for Saturday and Sunday at State Fair Park. The serial number of the Glock is EKG463US. Anyone with information about the gun is asked to call OSBI at (800) 522-8017. Kevin Sweat is being held in the Seminole County jail on a murder charge in connection with the death of his girlfriend, Ashley Taylor, 23. According to court records, charred remains believed to be those of Ashley Taylor were found Aug. 4 on a farm belonging to Sweat’s father. Wayne Woodyard, Kevin Sweat’s attorney in the Ashley Taylor case, said he could not comment about whether his client has been questioned in the Weleetka case. “The concern we have in reference to the Taylor case is the more of that speculation that is done on the Weleetka case, the harder that is going to be to get a fair trial in the Taylor case,” Woodyard said this month.

able to camp out overnight without the permit because the park closes at 11 p.m.,” Citty said. “They would be allowed to come back in the morning when the park opens, without a permit, but they couldn’t camp out there overnight without those toilets.”

Change in dynamic Although protesters and the city maintain they’ve had a productive, peaceful relationship during the past several weeks, both acknowledged the dynamic has changed in recent days. Matthew Hamlet, who posts on

Facebook from the campsite, said he noticed a change in the city’s stance following Occupy’s protests the past week. “They don’t want us to be here,” Hamlet said. “We’re definitely feeling the heat.” Citty said the city hasn’t changed its stance on the protesters, but he did note another change in the situation downtown. “We just want to have discussions with them and so far we’ve been able to do that,” Citty said. “But the leadership is changing. Some of the original people we were talking with aren’t really associating with the group anymore.”

VETERANS HAVE A BONE TO PICK AT STATE CAPITOL BY MICHAEL MCNUTT Capitol Bureau mmcnutt@opubco.com

Chuck Myers, who won two of the early governor’s dominoes tournaments three decades ago, will share the governor’s trophy again this year. Myers, 76, and Bill Robison, both from the Claremore Veterans Center, won the annual tournament Friday, beating teams from the six other veterans centers in the state. Gov. Mary Fallin was ill and unable to attend her first tournament since taking office in January. Retired Maj. Gen. Rita Aragon, the governor’s secretary of veterans affairs, took her place. She joined former Gov. George Nigh, who started the Governor’s Domino Tournament more than 30 years ago, in playing against some of the teams. “It’s just to honor the veterans and to make people aware that we have such great veterans centers in the state,” Nigh said. Aragon, who during her 28year military career served as the commander of the Oklahoma Air National Guard, took the blame for her and Nigh’s lack of success in a couple of matches with veterans. “I played as a kid ... but no, I’m not a dominoes player,” she said. Aragon said the event “is something these guys look for-

ward to all year long.” Robison, 75, who served in the Army from 1955 to 1957, said he and Myers play dominoes daily. Myers, who has lived at the Claremore center since 1988, served in the Marines from 1953 to 1956. Not all the veterans playing in the tournament were longtime players. Gene Westbrook advanced to Friday’s competition after having learned to play dominoes about six months ago after

moving into the Lawton Veterans Center. Westbrook, 42, credited his success to his playing partner, 93-year-old Wilson Harvey. Westbrook suffered a severed spinal cord during a mortar attack in Iraq in 2005, 18 years after he entered the Army. A drill sergeant, he was assigned to train Iraqi soldiers; he was in Sadr City for seven months when he was injured. “The Iraqi soldiers were the ones who actually pulled me out ... when I got hurt,” he said.

Police think woman found in pond was slaying victim BY ZACK STOYCOFF Tulsa World zack.stoycoff@tulsaworld.com

TULSA — Medical examiners have confirmed that remains found in a submerged SUV on Oct. 28 are those of Sheila Sharp, and investigators now suspect that she was murdered, Tulsa police said Friday. The remains — discovered at the bottom of a retention pond inside a 1997 Ford Expedition that belonged to Sharp when she disappeared in 2006 — showed signs of surgeries that matched those on Sharp’s medical records,

police said. Meanwhile, new information from those who last saw Sharp suggest that she was killed by someone she knew and trusted, Sgt. Dave Walker said. The information has led police to a person of interest, he said. “We have some reasonable suspicion of who that might be, but we’re nowhere near calling him a suspect,” Walker said. The Expedition was pulled from the pond near Fifth Street and Mingo Road three days after a dog walking there with its owner found human re-

mains inside a woman’s left shoe. Authorities believe that the foot was Sharp’s, but DNA tests have yet to confirm that, Walker said. Medical examiners did not find a left foot in the SUV, he said.

Searching for leads Since the discoveries, investigators have interviewed Sharp’s family and friends with “varying degrees of cooperation,” including some who refused to talk, Walker said. The investigation has focused on those who saw Sharp on Valentine’s Day,

the day before she was reported missing, he said. That includes her daughter, Tatiana Scott, who told the Tulsa World in a 2009 interview that she saw her mother with a man that day. She could not be reached for comment Friday. More people who saw Sharp that day could help police break the case, Walker said. “Somebody out there has more facts than we’re getting to,” he said. “Who was she with when she was last seen, if somebody had seen her that evening — that’s what we need.”

DESIGN OF NEWEST LIBRARY PAYS TRIBUTE TO OIL INDUSTRY

This view shows the main entrance on the east side of the Metropolitan Library System branch under construction at 5200 NW 122. BY HUGH SCOTT For The Oklahoman

Eight faux oil derricks dominate the interior decor of the new library under construction at 5200 NW 122. The bases of the derricks serve as glassed-in meeting rooms and quiet rooms, while the top of the derricks reach through the roof and are skylights. Other design features include glass exterior walls across much of the structure, allowing for natural lighting. The library is expected to be completed in February and open in March, said Kim Terry, spokeswoman for the Metropolitan Library System. “The building should actually be finished in February, but it will take some time to move everything into the building to get ready for the public, hence the March opening date,” Terry said. Construction began in March 2010. The library is the 18th facility in the Metropolitan Library System and the third largest library in the system. City officials plan to name it for former Mayor Patience Latting. “The new library will feature a collection of nearly 156,000 books, magazines, CDs, and DVDs,” Terry said. “All materials are purchased specifically for the northwest library.”

Wi-Fi hot spot The library also will have more than 60 computers for public use, all with Internet access. The library will be a free Wi-Fi hot spot. The facility will include two large meeting rooms that can be combined for a capacity of 200 people, along with activity rooms and programming rooms adjacent to the teen and children’s areas and multiple quiet study areas. The construction cost is $8.2 million, with funding coming from the 2000 and 2007 Oklahoma City general obligation bonds.

Funding for the furnishings and staffing will come from the Metropolitan Library System.

Efficient features The 35,000-squarefoot building utilizes many features that will make it one of the first Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certified libraries in Oklahoma. Some of those features include a geothermal heating and cooling system, drip irrigation system, low-flow faucets and toilets, and recycling bins for the customers and staff. LWPB Architecture designed the building with general contracting by Atlas. Julie Ballou has been named manager of operations for the new library. Most recently Ballou served in the same capacity at the Ronald J. Norrick Downtown Library. Ballou has worked with library system for 18 years. Ballou is in the process of hiring 35 to 40 people in the positions of librarians, library aides and circulation clerks. Positions will be filled through applications made on the library system’s website.

Sharp, also known as Sheila Scott, was reported missing by her daughter after she did not return home in the 10100 block of East 30th Street. She was 46. Investigators still aren’t sure how the Expedition wound up in the pond, which was about 18 feet deep before city crews drained it. Police initially suspected that the driver had fallen asleep and drifted off Mingo Road, up a slight incline and into the pond a few dozen feet west. They now say there is “reasonable suspicion”

that someone killed Sharp, although her cause of death is still under investigation. Her remains were scattered throughout the SUV but most were in the back seat, police said. “We don’t believe the person who killed her was a serial killer and maybe not even a bad person. Maybe he went to somebody and said, ‘Oh man, I did a bad thing,’ ” Walker said. “Now that the body has been identified and found, it brings it back to the forefront, and maybe somebody will say, ‘Well, he did say something.’ ”

Candidates must run in new districts CAPITOL | AFFECTED AREAS ARE HOUSE DISTRICT 71 AND SENATE DISTRICTS 46, 20 BY MICHAEL MCNUTT Capitol Bureau mmcnutt@opubco.com

Contenders seeking to run for three legislative seats in special elections early next year have to run in the newly drawn House and Senate districts instead of the current districts, an attorney for the state Election Board said Friday. The Election Board’s general counsel at the state attorney general’s office advised that in her opinion, the 2012 special elections should be conducted using the new district boundaries, state Election Board Secretary Paul Ziriax said. The redistricting acts repealed the old district lines on Nov. 1. “The old districts have been eliminated,” he said. “They don’t exist anymore. They were repealed.” The legislation instructs the Election Board to conduct the elections in 2012 for the Senate and the House of Representatives using the new district boundaries, he said. The

acts do not distinguish between general elections and special elections. The three open legislative seats became vacant or will become vacant after the bills took effect. The affected districts are House District 71 in Tulsa County and Senate Districts 46 in Oklahoma County and 20 in Kingfisher, Logan, Noble and Pawnee counties. Minor changes occurred in the House District 71 seat, but the Senate District 46 seat shifted somewhat in Oklahoma City and Senate District 20 moved south and east. It used to cover Grant and Kay counties, and parts of Alfalfa, Garfield and Woods counties. Three other Senate districts now cover that area. Since Nov. 1, the Senate, where the odd-numbered seats are up for election in 2012 and the evennumbered districts are up for election in 2014, has been operating under the new districts, said Nathan Atkins, spokesman for Senate President Pro Tem Brian Bingman, R-

Sapulpa. Constituents whose senators were not changed during redistricting are not affected, he said. Constituents whose Senate districts have changed are now represented by the senators in the new districts. The House is using the current districts, said John Estus, spokesman for House Speaker Kris Steele, R-Shawnee. There won’t be Tulsans who go unrepresented, but some may wind up being represented twice because 4,371 voters in the new House District 71 are in the current House District 69, he said. That term doesn’t expire until after the November 2012 elections. “We’re still determining how to best address this potential of double representation,” Estus said. “There isn’t much precedent to look at here, so until determined otherwise, the House will be operating under the current districts.” Ziriax asked for the attorney general’s advice because the special elections

posed unusual questions. The vacancies are happening around the same time that legislative redistricting has occurred. The special elections are necessary because two lawmakers recently resigned and one legislator died. Senate Minority Leader Andrew Rice, DOklahoma City, is moving out of state; his resignation is effective Jan. 15. House of Representatives Floor Leader Dan Sullivan, R-Tulsa, is resigning Nov. 30; he was hired last month to be chief executive officer of the Grand River Dam Authority. Sullivan’s new duties begin Dec. 1. The Senate District 20 post became vacant when David Myers, a Republican from Ponca City, died last week. Rep. Al McAffrey, DOklahoma City, who announced he planned to seek Rice’s Senate seat, said Friday his residence falls in the new Senate District 46 by a couple blocks so he will be eligible to run for that post.

ALSO ... SPECIAL ELECTION DATES SET Voters in Kingfisher, Logan, Noble and Pawnee counties will go to the polls early next year to fill the vacant post of Senate District 20, Gov. Mary Fallin said Friday. The post became vacant when David Meyers, a Republican senator from Ponca City elected to the seat in 2002, died last week. Senate District 20 was shifted as part of the Senate redistricting plan approved and signed into law this year. An assistant attorney general has advised election officials that the legislation eliminated the current districts and required legislative elections conducted in 2012 should use the new districts. Senate President Pro Tem Brian Bingman has issued a directive that the Senate is using the new districts, because the legislation creating them took effect Nov. 1. Fallin issued an executive order establishing the filing period and special elections to fill the Senate District 20 post. The dates are the same as two other special legislative elections to fill vacancies caused by resignations. Seats are being vacated by Senate Minority Leader Andrew Rice, D-Oklahoma City, and House of Representatives Floor Leader Dan Sullivan, R-Tulsa. The filing period for all three special elections is Dec. 5-7. The special primary election is Feb. 14. A special general election for both seats will be April 3. In the event that a primary election is not necessary, the general election will be Feb. 14, according to the governor’s proclamations. MICHAEL MCNUTT, CAPITOL BUREAU

Families, friends on hand to welcome guardsmen BY JERRY WOFFORD Tulsa World jerry.wofford@tulsaworld.com

TULSA — Shelley Schomburg was sending text messages to her husband, Staff Sgt. Wayne Schomburg, as the charter plane taxied to the Oklahoma Air National Guard base Friday. It had been nearly two months since she had seen him, and just more than two months since they were married. “I’ll knock a few people over to get out,” he told her in a text as the airmen pushed the staircase up to the jet to let the more than 100 members of the 138th Fighter Wing deplane to greet relatives and friends who gathered in anxious anticipation. The Guard members returned Friday to Oklahoma from their two-month deployment in Iraq, marking an end to a decades-long history between Iraq and the fighter wing. When Shelley Schomburg saw her husband, she started to run toward him but was stopped by an airman who was keeping people off the tarmac. “I just want to jump in his arms and never let go,” she said. “Every minute of the day, all you do is think about him.” When he made it to her, they embraced tightly and held each other. Then she told him that she had a surprise for him: Wayne Schomburg’s brother, Bill Schomburg, had driven through the night across several states to see Wayne Schomburg return. Wayne Schomburg saw his older brother and was immediately overcome with tears of joy. “This is absolutely indescribable,” he said. “Best surprise I’ve ever had.” Bill Schomburg was still using crutches to get around after falling 35 feet from a tree last year, a fall that broke both his legs and nearly killed him, Wayne Schomburg said. “It’s absolutely a miracle he’s here,” he said. Andrew Pranger was looking forward to sharing his 14th birthday dinner with his father, Tech. Sgt. James Pranger. “It’s a very good birthday present,” said Andrew’s sister, Ashley Pranger. “We’re very excited.” Their mother, Teri Pranger, said the separation is difficult, even after going through several deployments with her husband. “This is his 10th deployment, and they never get

AT A GLANCE OKLAHOMA GUARD TROOPS OVERSEAS More than 2,000 members of the 45th Infantry Brigade Combat Team deployed in late June to support combat operations in the east-central region of Afghanistan. Those deployed include the 179th Infantry Regiment of Stillwater, the 279th Infantry Regiment of Tulsa and the 700th Support Battalion of Oklahoma City. About 1,200 Guard members from the 45th Infantry Brigade Combat Team deployed at the same time to Kuwait to aid in protecting support lines. They are members of the 180th Cavalry of Durant and the 160th Field Artillery of Chandler.

easy,” she said. About 200 members of the 138th Fighter Wing left for Iraq on Sept. 28 to provide air support to the withdrawal of American troops from Iraq, which is set to be completed by the end of 2011. The remaining airmen will return with supplies over the coming week. “During this historic undertaking to reposture personnel, equipment and bases, force protection remained inherent in every operation,” said Lt. Col. Rick Poplin, commander of the 125th Fighter Squadron, which is part of the 138th Fighter Wing. “The close air support missions we flew provided top cover for U.S. forces as they transitioned personnel and equipment out of Iraq. As always, the men and women of the Oklahoma Air National Guard performed flawlessly and exceeded expectations at every level.” Members of the 138th Fighter Wing will be some of the last American forces in the country. President Barack Obama said last month that, in accordance with the U.S.Iraq Status of Forces

Agreement signed by President George W. Bush in 2008, all U.S. troops would be out of the country by Dec. 31, 2011, bringing an end to the nearly nine-year war in Iraq. For Tulsa’s unit, the involvement in that country has lasted longer than that. Members of the 138th Fighter Wing covered the northern and southern no-fly zones in Iraq in the 1990s. They were in Kuwait on Sept. 11, 2001, and have been deployed to Iraq several times since to provide air support for Operation Iraqi Freedom. Brig. Gen. Mike Hepner, commander of the 138th Fighter Wing, said that for the unit, their history with Iraq makes this homecoming somewhat more meaningful than others. “The first ones in and the last ones out,” he said. “It’s a good piece of history for them, and we’re proud of them.” With the war ending, some of the airmen and their families can rest a little easier now, Hepner said. “It’s some closure to our folks and families,” he said.“They have the hardest job.”

Jury acquits man in ’09 city shooting COURTS | DEFENSE ATTORNEY CITES LACK OF GUNSHOT RESIDUE ON CLIENT’S SHIRT BY TIM WILLERT Staff Writer twillert@opubco.com

Ward walked up to the driver’s side window and shot Atchison twice in the head. But Cajuan Johnson, a felon who fled the scene immediately after the shooting and took his brother’s .380-caliber handgun — which he said his brother may have used to return fire — was portrayed as a less-thancredible witness by the defense. Assistant Public Defender Kent Bridge told jurors in his closing arguments that Ward could not have shot Atchison at close range because there wasn’t any gunshot residue on his shirt. A ballistics expert testified that the shots that killed Atchison were fired from six to eight feet away, not close range. “It couldn’t have happened the way (Johnson)

Willie W. Washburn Jr. July 25, 1923 - Nov. 17, 2011

OKLAHOMA CITY Willie Willis Washburn, Jr. was born on July 25, 1923 in Atlanta, GA and passed away on Thursday, November 17, 2011, at the age of 88, in Oklahoma City, OK. Willie graduated from high school in the spring of 1942 in Silver Springs, MD. Shortly afterwards in 1944, he was drafted into the Army Air Corps and served as a supply technician in Guam and French Morocco. He was promoted several times and ended his military career as a Master Sergeant after serving 20 years in the Air Force. Willie retired and worked at Tinker Air Force Base until retiring again, but as a civilian. A very active man, you could always find Willie tinkering with something, whether it be his train collection or just fixing something around his house.

snow routes in the metro area. Since the association had a forum for this already in place with its transportation planning program, ACOG basically got everyone in the room together and went through the map with a marker. Before this, there was no unifying map, and communities either collaborated by phone, by email or didn’t coordinate, Church said. Several factors are considered for determining routes for a particular winter. Each municipality looks at traffic counts, volume, peak driving conditions and makes a determination on what streets its residents travel the most, or what streets can best be considered as emergency routes to get people home if a snowstorm hits at the end of a work day. For example, the staff from Midwest City was interested in making sure that employees at Tinker Air Force Base could leave the base and find a way home, Church said. This is why Douglas,

Air Depot and SE 29 Street are high priorities. Each summer, all of the municipalities assess the previous winter and have the opportunity to make changes to the map, based on what worked, what didn’t and any changes in their staffing and equipment. For instance, Oklahoma City acquired some new plows, allowing it to better implement snow removal plans this winter, Church said.

Not perfect Church reminds motorists that the map is not absolute. Sometimes the best snow removal plans can’t compete with Mother Nature. “The map is not absolute, because sometimes blizzards happen,” he said. “You can plow a street continuously, and still can’t keep up with some extreme snowfalls. “I recall last year, that in Oklahoma City, there was so much snow, that the crews simply couldn’t keep up, even on desig-

Snow: Safe routes from Tinker are top priority in Midwest City nated routes like Meridian Avenue and NW 23 Street. There simply was too much snow and crews couldn’t keep up, despite pulling round-the-clock shifts.” Church said having reduced traffic, even on snow routes would help the clearance process immensely. It’s important for drivers who drive a lot, for new drivers and for anyone who may be new to the region to become familiar with the snow route map in advance of storms. The past two winters have brought some intense snowstorms, so there’s a precedent that snow can accumulate quickly. “I think our metro meteorologists do a great job with forecasting,” Church said. “Citizens need to pay attention and when a snowstorm is forecast, be prepared to stay off the roads. Also, our metro crews work hard and care enormously about the safety of drivers. “When severe weather hits, these crews are ready to go, and as citizens, we should be thankful for their dedication.”

AREA REALTORS, BUILDERS CITE FACTORS THAT CONTRIBUTE TO BETTER BALANCE

Housing market evens out BY RICHARD MIZE Real Estate Editor richardmize@opubco.com

Sustained sales, steady but reduced construction and a drop in the number of homes offered for sale combined last month to leave Oklahoma City’s housing market closer to balanced than it’s been in months. Not counting new houses sold directly by builders not involving a Realtor, October ended

with an estimated 6.6month supply of houses on the market, according to calculations by The Oklahoman using statistics from the Oklahoma City Metro Association of Realtors. The inventory was calculated by dividing the number of listings by the average number of sales over the previous 12 months — 1,268.75 — to estimate how long it would take to sell the houses if no others were offered

for sale. The month ended with 8,469 homes for sale on the Realtors’ Multiple Listing Service, 574 fewer than at the end of October, 2010. It was the smallest number of listings since last March, when wouldbe sellers dared the winter doldrums with 8,284 offerings.

Oil prices dropped below $98 per barrel Friday to the end of a week that mixed jitters about Europe’s debt with the prospect of tighter oil supplies and improving economic conditions in the U.S. PAGE 3C

The former owner of seven payday loan stores was convicted of securities fraud and conspiracy to commit money laundering in attracting investments through transactions that authorities labeled a Ponzi scheme. Brian McKye, 47, of Oklahoma City, was found guilty this week after a jury trial in U.S. District Court, U.S. Attorney Sanford C. Coats said Friday. More than 80 people invested more than $6 million with McKye’s Global West Financial LLC and related companies, said Steven Moriarty, the attorney serving as receiver for the firm’s assets. Those investors will receive about 2 cents for every dollar they invested with McKye — a total of about $125,000, Moriarty said. “It’s going to be a very paltry sum,” Moriarty said. “I wish it was a better story, but it’s a sad one.” Yukon retiree Judy Chancellor said she and her husband invested about $30,000 with McKye, much less than some victims. “Praise God,” Chancellor said. “I hate to see that happen to anybody, but he was a big time thief.” The roughly $600 Chancellor expects to receive from the liquidation of Global West Financial’s assets likely will go toward a cover for her husband’s pickup. “What an insult,” she said. “Two cents on the dollar is a slap in the face.” McKye paid “several thousand dollars” in interest payments to investors before the business was shut down, he said. The Oklahoma Securities Department closed Global West Financial in March 2009, claiming McKye was using money from later investors to pay the 8 percent to 19 percent annual returns that he had promised to early invesSEE FRAUD, BACK PAGE

Louis Lackey generally doesn’t take work home with him. But when the avid Sooner fan kicks back in his den tonight to watch the University of Oklahoma take on Baylor, he plans to drink at least a few cold cans of Budweiser, and it’s more than likely he’ll inspect the lids. Lackey is operation manager at Metal Container Corporation at 3713 Harmon Ave. in southwest Oklahoma City. Owned by St. Louis-based Anheuser-Busch, the facility — which is on 12.2 acres and spans 135,134 square feet — is one of the world’s largest lid plants, supplying lids to Anheuser-Busch’s U.S. breweries and Hansen Natural Corp., which makes Monster Energy Drink. Round-the-clock production equals more than 35 million lids per day, plant manager Tim Popp said. Every second, he said, the plant produces lids for the equivalent of 18 cases of Budweiser 24-can packs. The plant keeps a limited amount of supplies, Popp said, and directly moves finished goods, trucking lids from California to New Jersey. Anheuser-Busch has another lid plant in Riverside, Calif., he said, but it’s one-fourth the size of Oklahoma

Tim Popp Plant manager

Every day, the plant produces 35 million can lids for Budweiser beer and other beverages, recycling 98.7 percent of its aluminum and other solid wastes.

After they are made and packaged, the lids are trucked all over the nation.

City’s. Popp led state legislators and Anheuser-Busch representatives on a tour of the plant Thursday to mark its 25th anniversary. When it opened in February 1986, there were 13 workers. Today, the manufacturer employs 170. “We consider our employees strategic, innova-

tive partners,” Popp said. Metal Container Corp. offers competitive salaries and benefits, he said, and has no current openings. A native of Bethany, Lackey started at the plant in 1987 at age 20 as a temporary worker in packaging, before packaging was automated. He moved from temp worker to full-

time packager, to press operator, to industrial electrician, to quality assurance and, finally, operations. Along the way, the company paid for Lackey to earn an associate’s in math at Oklahoma City Community College and a bachelor’s in business at Oklahoma City University. “I knew AnheuserBusch was a well-known and well-respected company, so I felt the plant was a good place to make a career,” Lackey said. Between AnheuserBusch’s Oklahoma City plant and its distributorship in Tulsa, the company has invested $127 million in capital, and annually pays $16 million in state excise taxes and $4 million in state and local taxes, said Thomas Roth, regional director of government affairs. “Metal Container Corp. is an important employer in Oklahoma City,” Roth said, “with good-paying jobs and good benefits.”

says it is raising rates for ground and air shipments next year by 4.9 percent. The package shipping company typically announces rate increases in fall for the following year. The new rates apply to air and ground shipments within the U.S., as well as air shipments that originate in the U.S. and are headed overseas. The Atlanta company is also raising rates for next-day airfreight and second-day airfreight in the U.S., Canada and Puerto Rico by 5.9 percent. The new rates take effect Jan. 2. UPS had raised its freight unit prices 6.9 percent for shipments in the U.S., Canada and Mexico on Aug. 1. The freight unit moves heavier shipments like refrigerators.

plaining what the drop in listings might mean, especially if sales continue to sustain or improve. Realtors handled 1,286 sales last month, an increase of 25.4 percent compared with October a year ago. “It tells me we’re going to have a (relative) shortage of properties,” said Victoria Caldwell, broker-owner of RE/MAX Associates in Edmond. “The number of transactions in the past 12 months compared to the previous 12 months is up, and the number of listings is down. It’s amazing to me how low the inventory has gone.” But Steve Mann, president of the Metro Association of Realtors, said he thought a lot of would-be sellers are still spooked by the national housing crash, declines in property values still being reported across the country, and the slowdown here compared with the boom. “I think it tells us there’s probably been some houses on the market that didn’t sell” and so sellers gave up, said Mann, an auctioneer and agent with Paradigm AdvantEdge Real Estate Group based in Oklahoma City. “A lot of people are still of the mindset that it’s a slow time. Every Realtor I’ve talked to lately is complaining about inventory — the (low) number of listings.”

cations: “We still have lots of people coming in” — and out. She pointed to one house she sold twice in 10 months: a three-bedroom, two-bath, three-car 2005 home in Edmond’s Thomas Trails addition, which sold for $185,000 on Dec. 7, 2010, and sold again on Oct. 17 for $199,000. Foreclosures and short sales — homes marketed, sometimes hastily, for less than is owned on them to avoid foreclosure — have not socked it to the marketplace here as in other places, she said, but there are more “dirty houses” in the listing mix than usual. “There is always, always a shortage of cream-puff properties,” Finch said.

Sales hum in 2011

Wary builders

For their part, homebuilders as a whole continued to be reined in — and builder Jim Schuff said the construction slowdown reflects more than just cutbacks by builders. It also indicates the exit of part-time builders from the business when the going got tough.

Arpin Van Lines has named Affiliated Movers of Oklahoma City Inc., 2200 SE 69, as a recipient of a 2011 One Million Dollar Hauler Award and 2011 Greatest Sales Volume Award. Affiliated Movers, which has been affiliated with Arpin since 2006, was recognized at the recent Arpin Van Lines Agent convention in Palm Beach, Fla. The One Million Dollar Hauler Award is given to agents moving $1 million or more worth of household goods during the past year. The Greatest Sales Volume Award was for collect-on-delivery sales in a population center of 1 million or more.

SGS MOVING TO NEW SITE

Full-time builders are still cautious, though, said Schuff, president of the Central Oklahoma Home Builders Association and co-owner of Vesta Homes in Moore. “Used to be, you sold one, you’d start one, you sold one, you’d start one. Now, you sell one and you say, ‘Let’s think about this,’ and you sell another one, and you start one,” he said. But, he said, “I’ve been meeting with people like crazy. I’ve talked to several people lately who have (buyers) lined up.” Schuff said homebuilding here is getting back to where it should be. Oklahoma City, Edmond, Midwest City, Moore and Norman to-

gether issued 2,997 singlefamily construction permits through October, just 18 fewer than the first 10 months of 2010 — but 178 more than the same period in 2009 at the bottom of the bust. The cities issued 5,317 permits through October 2005, at the height of the boom. “These numbers right now are probably the correct Oklahoma City numbers,” Schuff said. “The number four or five years ago, they were crazy. If you’re a (full-time) builder now, then you’re in the right market. But this is Oklahoma. You know what will change that. A disaster. A tornado will wipe out a bunch of houses.”

SGS LLC, an Oklahoma City design-build firm, plans to move from 25 S Oklahoma Ave., No. 310 in Bricktown to a new $1.6-million office building — and 30 percent more space than it has now — it is constructing near SW 15 and Meridian Avenue in the Scenic River Overlay Design District. The new headquarters will be LEED-Silver certifiable under the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design rating system of the U.S. Green Building Council. SGA plans to move next summer. “Our new facility will be a showplace in sustainable design,” said Eddie Scott, SGS president. “Our design work is almost complete. Our design will provide highly functional space that personifies company’s culture, reflects our values of quality and efficiency, and engages our employees to better serve our clients.”

WOMAN ACCUSED OF FRAUD A federal grand jury has indicted Safiyyah Tahir Battles, of Oklahoma City, on charges related to mortgage fraud, said Sanford C. Coats, U.S. Attorney for the Western District of Oklahoma. The three-count indictment charges her with making a false statement to a bank, wire fraud, and money laundering. Coats said the indictment alleges that in 2007 Battles, while working for T&T Realty, took out two loans at First Security Bank to fund construction of a house at 5404 N Lottie Ave., using a 2006 federal income tax return as proof of her income when she had not yet filed a return; that she defrauded Saxon Mortgage when she applied for a $500,000 loan by making false claims about her income and assets; and that she wrote a check backed by $15,000 in proceeds from wire fraud. Battles faces combined sentences of 60 years in prison and $1.5 million in fines, plus restitution to the victims.

HOUSTON PROPERTIES AUCTIONED TULSA — Tulsa-based National Commercial Auctioneers handled the auction of 174 residential properties Nov. 12 in Houston for the Houston Housing Authority, in a dispersal of its remaining properties in its scattered-site home program. Gross sales in the absolute auction at Marriott Westchase Hotel fetched more than $8 million from buyers including nonprofits and private investors.

One missing digit triggers heart attack-inducing notice For want of a zero, could a house be lost? One digit missing from my checking account number, either because I remembered it wrong, or punched it in wrong, or said it wrong, or someone on the receiving end heard it wrong or typed it in wrong, caused our house payment not to be paid in July. That caused the payment made in August to be applied to the bill due in July, and so on until the payment made the other day was applied to the bill due in October — and then it caused Wells Fargo Home Mortgage to cough out this heart attack on letterhead, which came in the mail: “YOUR MORTGAGE LOAN IS IN DEFAULT. CALL IMMEDIATELY TO RESOLVE THIS VERY IMPORTANT LETTER.” Ignoring the chest pain, I called Wells Fargo, then talked to my wife, then called the credit union, then called Wells Fargo again, then talked to my wife again, then called the credit union again, and then pieced together what happened. My wife made the payment by phone, using my checking account number, which I’d written

down for her. Somewhere along the line that zero fell out of my seven-digit account number. So, when Wells Fargo tried to electronically access my account, it wasn’t actually my account, or anybody else’s, so the credit union answered back with the electronic version of “You have the wrong number.” And so began the series of payments applied backward instead of forward, and because life is messy and busy and my personal bookkeeping habits and skills are not the best, the mistake went undetected until Wells Fargo saw fit to send me a heart attack via the U.S. mail. It’s dealt with, but what a mess — and the thing is I like Wells Fargo. Right here, on April 16, 2000, as Wells Fargo was taking down the Norwest Mortgage sign after buying the company, and our home loan, I waxed his-

toric about “the dusty, sepia-toned image of those first Wells Fargo cross-country stagecoaches that comes to mind when someone says ‘Wells Fargo.’ ” And I ended with: “Nowadays, Wells Fargo Co. is a diversified company providing banking, insurance, investments, mortgage and consumer finance. "But the name will always conjure images of spreading civilization and stability in a wild country. And that’s not a bad notion to have when you sit down to write out a house payment.” How ironic. But I still have no complaints other than over this headache. My wife was ready to hang somebody from a tall oak tree, but the fact is I’m not sure where that zero fell out. And I am sure that if my bookkeeping skills followed Generally Accepted Accounting Principles rather than my current approach, Write Debit Charges on Scraps of Paper and Stick Them in a Pocket SpanishEnglish Dictionary, which I’ve carried in my hip pocket in self-defense for a year now, this ordeal would have been caught

before Wells Fargo went trigger-happy. Two points, though: I asked one of the people I talked to with Wells Fargo if there was a way to note the nature of the mistake, that we tried in good faith to make the payment and it just didn’t “take,” and she mumbled something that included “it’s all a numbers game.” That means “a racket,” although I’m sure she meant that nothing — NOTHING — matters but the numbers. No wonder so many people are just walking away from their houses and house payments. And, at one point, the other person with Wells Fargo said, emphatically, “Your loan isn’t actually in default.” Well, right here on this Wells Fargo letterhead, in big, all-capitalized letters, it emphatically says: “YOUR MORTGAGE LOAN IS IN DEFAULT.” So either the person or the letter was dishonest. That is no way to treat any customer, especially a good one. And it makes me doubt even more any statistics from anywhere that claim to assess the mortgage, default and foreclosure situation in this country.

DEFICIT-REDUCTION PLAN, POSSIBLE CUTS TO SOCIAL AID MIGHT HAMPER PROGRESS

SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 19, 2011

BUSINESS BRIEFS EGG SUPPLIER DROPPED MINNEAPOLIS — McDonald’s has dropped a Minne-

sota-based egg supplier after an animal rights group released an undercover video of operations at the egg producer’s farms in three states. The video by Mercy for Animals shows what it calls animal cruelty including a worker swinging a bird around by its feet. McDonald’s Corp. said Friday the behavior shown on the video is “disturbing and completely unacceptable.” The fast-food chain says it demands humane treatment of animals by suppliers. The move also follows a warning letter to Sparboe Farms this week from the Food and Drug Administration that said inspectors found serious food safety violations at five Sparboe facilities.

MORE HOPE SEEN THAN PANIC WASHINGTON — Just as

the U.S. economy is making progress despite Europe’s turmoil, here come two new threats. A congressional panel is supposed to agree by Thanksgiving on a deficitreduction package of at least $1.2 trillion. If it fails, federal spending would automatically be cut by that amount starting in 2013. Congress may also let emergency unemployment aid and a Social Security tax cut expire at year’s end. Either outcome could slow growth and spook markets. Analysts are concerned, but most aren’t panicking. Many say the economy and markets will likely muddle through. It’s possible that the supercommittee will reach a partial deal that might limit the impact of the automatic cuts in 2013. Congress also could pass legislation next year to ease the scope or timing of the spending cuts. And investors expect so little from the congressional panel that they’re unlikely to overreact whatever it does. “There’s no doomsday scenario in reducing government spending,” said David Kelly of JP Morgan Funds. The 12-member bipartisan panel, or supercommittee, was created in August to defuse a political standoff over raising the

David Kelly of JP Morgan Funds said Wall Street is unlikely to panic given that expectations for the supercommittee “are so low as to be subterranean.” Even so, some traders appear to be positioning for a shock. So-called “defensive” sectors of the stock market, such as health care companies and utilities, which tend to retain their value in a weak economy, have been outpacing the S&P 500 index as a whole. In the past month, the economy has shown surprising strength. Reports this week showed that manufacturers are producing more goods, and consumers are spending more. The number of people seeking unemployment benefits for the first time is at a seven-month low.

federal borrowing limit. If it can’t agree on a deficit-reduction plan, automatic spending cuts would hit programs prized by both parties: social services such as Medicare for Democrats, defense for Republicans. The panel appears to be deadlocked. Many economists hoped that an extension of the Social Security tax cuts and unemployment benefits would be part of a supercommittee deal. Congress could extend those benefits separately. But it would be under pressure to offset the cost to avoid raising the deficit. The Social Security tax cut gave most Americans an extra $1,000 to $2,000 this year. Unemployment benefits provide about $300 a week. Most of that money quickly and directly boosts consumer spending, which drives the economy. By contrast, an expiration of those benefits could cut growth by about

three-quarters of a percentage point, economists say. Throw in other cuts, such as those passed in the August debt deal, and all told, federal budget policies could subtract 1.7 percentage points from growth in 2012, according to JPMorgan Chase and Moody’s Analytics. Given the tepid economy, such a hit could be damaging. “It would be very difficult for an economy that’s doing well to digest, let alone one that’s barely growing at potential,” said Ryan Sweet, an economist at Moody’s. “That could unwind a lot of the improvement we’ve seen so far.” The economy grew at an annual rate of 2.5 percent in the July-September quarter. Some analysts fear it could fall below 2 percent next year, especially if the emergency unemployment benefits and Social Security tax cuts aren’t renewed.

The U.S. economy faces other threats, too — from persistently high unemployment to Europe’s spreading debt crisis, which could hasten a recession. If the automatic spending cuts take effect, the defense budget could be cut by nearly $500 billion over nine years. Some contractors are nervous. Wes Bush, CEO of Northrop Grumman, has told analysts that the company is bracing for spending cuts. “It’s certainly going to be a more challenging environment” next year, he said. Another wild card: Some investors fear that the supercommittee’s failure would spark fresh downgrades of U.S. debt. Standard & Poor’s downgraded the government’s long-term debt in August. That contributed to a stock market plunge. It’s possible that a deadlocked supercommittee would lead the two other major rating agencies — Fitch and Moody’s — to follow suit. Yet S&P’s downgrade did little to tarnish U.S. debt. Treasury prices rose, and yields fell. Bond investors still saw Treasurys as a super-safe investment. Federal borrowing costs actually declined. “S&P showed that when a rating agency downgrades the best-known security in the world, it has little impact,” Kelly said. The market for U.S. Treasurys is so broad, accessible and transparent that ratings downgrades don’t pose much threat, he noted.

Oil price finishes week below $98 despite surge in trading BY CHRIS KAHN AP Energy Writer

NEW YORK — Oil prices dropped below $98 per barrel Friday to the end of a volatile week that mixed jitters about Europe’s debt with the prospect of tighter oil supplies and improving economic conditions in the U.S. The price of oil ended the week lower than it began, despite a surge of trading that temporarily pushed crude above $100 at midweek for the first time since July. On Friday, benchmark crude fell $1.41 to finish at $97.41 per barrel in New York, in light trading ahead of the Thanksgiving holiday week. The sharp price fluctu-

ations in oil will ripple through energy markets, but analysts say the ups and downs this week probably won’t have much effect on retail gasoline prices. Pump prices fell nearly a penny Friday to a national average of $3.38 per gallon, according to AAA, Wright Express and Oil Price Information Service. A gallon of regular has lost 44 cents since hitting its 2011 peak near $4 per gallon in May. Analysts say prices could fall by another 13 cents by the end of the year. For most of October and November, oil prices have soared on encouraging economic news in the U.S. and reports that crude supplies were dropping. The benchmark price

jumped as high as $103.37 Wednesday, after an announcement by two Canadian pipeline companies that they would bring oil from a key delivery point in Cushing, OK, to the Gulf Coast. That will reduce a glut of crude in the Midwest that has weighed on benchmark prices this year. Prices plunged Thursday as borrowing rates jumped in Europe and investors worried that slowing eurozone economies would reduce demand for oil. Analysts say the dust is still settling from the rapid swings in oil prices this week. “The market is just wobbly right now,” independent analyst and trader

Stephen Schork said. On Friday, the headlines about the world economy were mostly positive. Greek leaders predicted that the country’s massive budget deficit will fall sharply next year, with the help of bailouts and other debt relief. In the U.S. a gauge of economic indicators showed solid growth in October, and a stronger economy means rising demand for oil. In other energy trading, gasoline futures fell 2.87 cents to end at $2.4784 per gallon. Natural gas dropped 9.4 cents to finish at $3.3160 per 1,000 cubic feet. Brent crude gave up 69 cents to end the week at $107.40 per barrel in London.

ST. LOUIS — Barge traffic on the Mississippi River is at a standstill in both directions near St. Louis as crews scramble to clear sediment that’s clogging the waterway. Barges were lined up in a holding pattern near downtown St. Louis at midday Friday. They were expected to spend the night there as dredging efforts continued. Mike Petersen of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers says that sediment clearing would be suspended Saturday long enough for the cargo-loaded vessels to clear. The buildup is being blamed on strong crosscurrents caused by recent accidents on the river. Petersen says those currents also complicate dredging. Any prolonged closure could create a backlog of shipping barges and slow commerce. The river is a major artery for moving coal, grain, ore, gravel, auto parts and other products.

‘FIRE’ TABLET SELLING AT A LOSS NEW YORK — Amazon.com Inc.’s Kindle Fire tablet, which started shipping this week, costs $201.70 to make, a research firm said Friday. That’s $2.70 more than Amazon charges for it. The analysis by IHS indicates that Amazon is, at least initially, selling the tablet at a loss that it hopes to cover through sales of books and movies Kindle Fire for the device. The manufacturing cost of a new gadget usually comes down over time as chips become cheaper. Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos told The Associated Press in September that the company’s goal was to make a small profit from the hardware, but as a retail company, Amazon was willing to live with a smaller margin than most electronics companies would.

EX-BANKER GETS LENIENCY MIAMI, Fla. — A former banker at Swiss giant UBS

AG was sentenced Friday to five years’ probation and no jail time for tax fraud as a reward for helping U.S. prosecutors build other tax evasion cases. Senior U.S. District Judge James Lawrence King agreed that 45-year-old Renzo Gadola deserved leniency for his cooperation, which has led to charges against two former colleagues and at least one banking client. “You cooperated fully and the results have been extraordinary,” King said at a hearing. Gadola, who worked at UBS from 1995 to 2008 and later started his own business, had potentially faced at least 10 months in prison after pleading guilty to tax fraud conspiracy in 2010. Prosecutors suggested a sentence of five months behind bars, but they also did not oppose the probation term that was handed down.

SETTLEMENT DEADLINE IS MONDAY LITTLE ROCK, Ark. — Rice growers who lost sales after genetically modified rice seed mistakenly entered the U.S. market five years ago have until Monday to sign on to a $750 million settlement proposed by the company blamed for the problem. More than 10,000 farmers in Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri and Texas sued the German conglomerate Bayer CropScience after the modified strain of long-grain rice got loose in 2006. The mistake led to lost sales in major markets, such as the European Union, and left many growers with huge losses.

COMPANIES PROPOSE CONCESSIONS BERLIN — Deutsche Boerse AG and NYSE Eu-

ronext are offering concessions on their derivatives businesses in a bid to overcome objections to their planned merger from the European Union’s competition watchdog. The two companies said Friday that they have sent a proposal to the EU agency that aims at “eliminating the existing overlap in European single equity derivatives and ensures continued competition in European interest rate and equity index derivatives.” Deutsche Boerse, which operates the Frankfurt stock exchange, said in February that it would buy NYSE Euronext for $10 billion, creating the world’s largest exchange operator. NYSE Euronext owns bourses in Paris, Lisbon, Brussels and Amsterdam, in addition to New York. The EU raised issues last month with the plans. The biggest point of contention is the combined company’s strong position in the trading of derivatives, a very lucrative business for exchanges.

CUBA SOURS ON SUGAR HAVANA — Cuba’s once-mighty sugar industry is

going on a diet. Communist Party newspaper Granma reports that authorities are shuttering all but 26 of the 178 bureaucratic entities currently associated with sugar production. The goal is to cut administrative costs by 55 percent. Granma does not say how many workers are losing their jobs. But it says most have already been reassigned and none will be forsaken. The restructuring is part of a major industry overhaul to boost efficiency. Last year, authorities reported the lowest harvest in more than a century. Officials announced in September that the Sugar Ministry was being eliminated. FROM WIRE REPORTS

Travel increase expected at airport BY JENNIFER PALMER Business Writer jpalmer@opubco.com

With the busy holiday travel season beginning this week, the growth at Will Rogers World Airport is expected to continue. Departures increased by more than 2 percent in October, compared to the same month in 2010. “We’ve been holding onto a steady growth over the past six months. We anticipate we’ll continue that,” said Karen Carney, an airport spokeswoman. This week’s announcement of a new nonstop route on Southwest

Airlines to Chicago’s Midway International Airport added to the momentum, she said. “Southwest is very cautious before they make route changes. They are confident it will work. I think that says a lot,” she added. The story has been different at Tulsa International Airport, which had a 1.7 percent drop in departing passengers in October. Outbound traffic is down 2.5 percent for 2011.

spite fares that are expected to be 20 percent higher. And many more will go by car. The auto club predicts a total of 572,800 Oklahoma residents traveling over the holiday, 90 percent of those in a vehicle. That’s a 5 percent increase compared to last year and the first time holiday travel has increased among Oklahomans this year, AAA said.

AAA estimates

Departures were flat at LawtonFort Sill Regional Airport, with 5,340 passengers flying from the airport in October, a drop of less than 1 percent compared to October 2010.

Q&A WITH JEANETTE SMITH BRICKTOWN ASSOCIATION STEPS UP PROMOTION OF CHRISTMAS EVENTS Q: Bricktown will once again be celebrating the Christmas holiday season with free holiday boat rides on the canal and snow tubing at the ballpark. How has the Bricktown Association stepped up other efforts to bring Christmas cheer to the district? A: As always, we will continue to promote any special events Jeannette that our members are conSmith ducting. We had great sucDirector of the cess last year with offering Bricktown daily prize giveaways through Association social media, and are doing the same type of promotion this year with our Twelve Days of Christmas. Our followers really enjoy entering contests, and when we are able to package offers together, they (the winners) can “gift” them, or keep them for themselves and enjoy Bricktown during the Holidays. Q: How will the “Twelve Days of Christmas in Bricktown” promotion work? A: The Twelve Days of Christmas will help us push out merchant events and offerings to our visitors through our mobile club. Participating merchants will have a special QR code (an application on iPhones that links to Web content) applied to the outside of their business or at their hostess stand or cashier or any other place of high traffic in their business. When their visitor scans the code, they will get a bounce back with the option to join the Bricktown Mobile Club. Once they join, they will have the chance to win daily prizes and receive specials from participating merchants. It is an excellent opportunity for our visitors to stay in the “loop” as to what is happening in Bricktown during the holidays — as well as get the chance to win great prizes. Q: Bricktown will again be exclusively hosting a community Christmas tree lighting ceremony after briefly seeing the festivity move to the central business area in previous years. Does this reassert Bricktown’s status as the community focal point for downtown entertainment and celebration? A: We are absolutely thrilled that the SandRidge Mayor’s Tree Lighting event has come back to Bricktown. With so much to do in Bricktown, it has just made a lot of sense to begin the holiday festivities with this event in Bricktown.

NATIONAL RIG COUNT DECREASES HOUSTON — The number of rigs actively exploring for oil and natural gas in the U.S. dropped by 15 this week to 2,001. Houston-based drilling product provider Baker Hughes Inc. reported Friday that 1,125 rigs were exploring for oil and 871 for natural gas. Five were listed as miscellaneous. A year ago this week the rig count stood at 1,677. Of the major oil- and gas-producing states, Colorado and Wyoming each gained one rig. Oklahoma lost four rigs, New Mexico lost three, Alaska, California and Texas each lost two and Louisiana lost one. Arkansas, North Dakota, Pennsylvania and West Virginia were unchanged.

Talking chicken Turkeys are the center of attention in November, but investors in Tyson Foods are closely watching demand for chickens. Chicken producer Tyson Foods reports its fiscal fourth-quarter earnings Monday. Analysts have said that consumers are eating out less, which hurts chicken prices. But Tyson has offset that by paying less for feed.

Your local garbage truck and the 18-wheeler ahead of you on the highway may be the best ways for you to invest in natural gas. Big natural gas-powered trucks are becoming more popular because they’re cheaper to run and cleaner than diesel-powered vehicles. That means the companies making natural gas engines and the tanks and pumps to fuel them may be poised for big growth. Financial analysts like Westport Innovations and Clean Energy Fuels. A natural gas-powered heavy truck costs $20,000 to $40,000 more than a diesel truck. But liquefied natural gas costs roughly half the $3.99 per gallon cost of diesel fuel. Many long-distance truckers can pay off the extra cost within two years. Meanwhile, 20 percent of new garbage trucks sold last year ran on natural gas. That’s expected to grow to between 25 percent and 40 percent next year. Waste Management, a trash collection company, says it expects 80 percent of its new vehicles to

Sterne Agee analyst Shaw Wu upgraded the stock to “Buy” from “Neutral” Friday and said HP made the right decision. After the upgrade, HP’s shares jumped nearly 4 percent. When HP reports on Monday, investors will get a closer look inside the PC division, which has struggled. Some analysts worry that HP’s brand will suffer because of its public change of heart.

HP still computes Computer and printer maker Hewlett-Packard has had trouble deciding what to do with its PCs. In August, the company said it would sell or spin off its PC division, which accounts for a third of its revenue. Then a month later, the board fired CEO Leo Apotheker and HP decided not to get rid of the division.

use natural gas. Westport Innovations has developed technology for natural gas engines. It’s working with engine maker Cummins to adapt engines for natural gas. And it’s working with energy company Shell to sell engines, fuel and fueling equipment to truckers. Westport is also outfitting Ford pickups with natural gas engines. And it’s selling heavy-duty trucks with &((&r,2&0*74+*9*7'.19&3) Kenworth trucks. Clean Energy’s business is fueling stations. The company, founded by investor T.443*.(0*38-&87&.8*) $300 million to build stations along major trucking corridors. It has 92 in development. It also has deals to build 130 private stations for companies that want to change their vehicles to natural gas. Neither Westport nor Clean Energy is making money. But Matthew Ligas, an analyst at Copia Capital, says both look to have strong growth in the coming years because of natural gas’s cost advantage.

On Wednesday, the Commerce Department will report on how much consumers earned, saved and spent in October. Economists and investors are hoping that consumers saved up enough to spend freely during the winter holiday shopping season. The holidays are a crucial time for retailers, who pull in a big chunk of their annual revenue in November and December.

GDP growth Change from previous quarter

Economists are less worried that U.S. growth will slow to the point of a second recession, but the slow economy is still a problem. Tuesday’s report by the Commerce Department will show how much the economy grew in the third quarter. Last month, the government released preliminary estimates that showed GDP had grown modestly between July and September. That staved off fears about a deep slowdown, but stubbornly high unemployment has raised doubts that the economy can sustain that growth.

Tax district fuels Tulsa revitalization BY MICHAEL OVERALL Tulsa World Michael.overall@tulsaworld.com

OTHER TIF DISTRICTS IN TULSA I Central Park, roughly between Peoria and Elgin avenues and Eighth Street and Fifth Place I The Technology District, surrounding what is now City Hall I The North Peoria District, between Apache and Pine streets and roughly Utica Avenue and the Osage Prairie Trail I The Blue Dome District, between Greenwood and Detroit avenues and Third Street and the railroad I Tulsa Hills, between 71st and 81st streets just east of U.S. 75

TULSA — In 1993, when

the city introduced “tax increment financing” in the Brady District, officials described it as the spark that would ignite downtown revitalization. And now, 18 years later, redevelopment is raging through the Brady District, where more than $80 million in construction is either under way or planned for the near future. Of course, downtown Tulsa has seen a few other sparks, too — most spectacularly the BOK Center and ONEOK Field. Should Vision 2025 and the new Drillers stadium take credit for the Brady District’s recent success? Or did the TIF really work after all? “It’s a short question,” said Tulsa city planner Dennis Whitaker, “but a long answer.” Private investment feeds off itself, with one successful development encouraging the next, until it builds into a wave of revitalization. The revitalization, in turn, will pour tax receipts into the TIF that will help fund more improvements. “The chicken and egg

Extended to 2018

question never seems to get resolved,” Whitaker

said. “Private investment is being drawn by the buzz and the energy in that part of downtown. “And the TIF was part of creating and sustaining that buzz.”

The first such district in Tulsa, the Brady TIF was originally set to expire in 2008. But the city extended it to 2018 because it wasn’t generating as much revenue as expected. “It has taken this long to accumulate a useful amount of money,” said Tom Wallace, a property owner in the Brady District. TIFs are designed to be revenue-neutral. The city continues to collect the same amount of sales tax from the area, and the school district reaps the same property taxes. The TIF siphons off any increase in tax revenues, setting aside the additional funds for use within the district itself. It collects money only as fast as the tax receipts grow, so a district needs to see some revitalization before the TIF can begin generating money to help sustain that revitalization. Until then, a TIF remains mostly symbolic, a

token of a city’s commitment to revitalization, Wallace said. But sometimes, a token is enough. “The TIF was certainly a motivator in my decision to invest in downtown,” said Wallace, who renovated a derelict warehouse into a corporate headquarters for Wallace Engineering. “I knew, sooner or later, the neighborhood would get a little help from this pool of money.” To date, the TIF has col-

lected $2.53 million, averaging just over $140,500 a year. The district has spent $1.10 million, including $687,000 for sidewalk improvements near Cain’s Ballroom. More than $200,000 paid for a series of computer-controlled searchlights that were supposed to attract attention to the area. “I’m not sure that was the best use of the money,” Wallace said. “We need to be more pragmatic.”

BACKGROUND MATCHING GRANTS A few years ago, Brady District business owners began discussing better ways to invest the money. And they recently settled on a new approach. Starting last month, the TIF is now provides matching grants for property owners who agree to upgrade sidewalks and landscaping in front of their businesses. To receive the money, property owners must foot 60 percent of the bill themselves and agree to follow guidelines that will give the sidewalks a cohesive look from block to block.

TULSA — American Airlines’ weekend service between Tulsa International Airport and Miami International Airport in Florida will resume Saturday and Sunday, airline and airport

officials said. Nonstop service between Tulsa and Miami will operate each Saturday through March 31 on 148seat Boeing 737s. The Tulsa-to-Miami flight departs at 7:30 a.m. CST and arrives in Miami at 11:15 a.m. EST. Nonstop service be-

tween Miami and Tulsa operates on Sundays through the end of March. The Miami-to-Tulsa flight departs at 7:50 p.m. EST and arrives in Tulsa at 11:06 p.m. CST. American’s nonstop service between Tulsa and Miami operated previously from June 2010 through

early February 2011. The service was instituted by the Fort Worth carrier partially as a way to bring Miami-based 737 aircraft to American’s Maintenance & Engineering Center for periodic maintenance, repair and overhaul, airline executives said.

ORMAN — Look at

Jaz Reynolds has 32 catches for 578 yards and five TDs, but he and his big hands are being counted on to help fill the void of the loss of Ryan Broyles. PHOTO BY CHRIS LANDSBERGER, THE OKLAHOMAN; HAND PRINT BY JAZ REYNOLDS; ILLUSTRATION BY BILL BOOTZ, THE OKLAHOMAN

the outline of Jaz Reynolds’ hand, and it seems fake. The gigantic palm. The long fingers. The nineplus inches from wrist to middle fingertip. Surely his hands aren’t that big. But they are. The Oklahoma receiver who has become the Sooners’ No. 2 pass-game option after the seasonending injury to Ryan Broyles is No. 1 in the big-hands department. No wonder he makes all those crazy one-handed catches. He has mitts like a major-league first baseman. “It runs in the family,” Reynolds said, shrugging. The guy wears receiver gloves that are size 3X. No other Sooner receiver wears anything bigger than 2X. Still, big hands do not a good receiver make. “Ryan has small hands,

but he still can catch obviously,” Reynolds said of the NCAA’s career receptions leader. “It helps, but at the end of the day, it’s not really a big deal.” Reynolds has emerged this season not because of hands that are only a couple inches smaller than Shaquille O’Neal’s. (Remember, the Big Aristotle is nearly a foot taller than Reynolds.) Rather, it’s his increased consistency. Reynolds didn’t have a catch in the Sooners’ first two games. Heck, he didn’t even play at Florida State. But in the seven games since, he has averaged 4.6 catches and 82.6 yards receiving per game. His most impressive stat is his yards per catch: 18.1. “Jaz as a player and as a person, he’s just really progressed throughout the season,” senior receiver Dejuan Miller said. ”Whenever any player gets confidence as they build throughout the season … you start to develop more of a swagger. When you go out there, you really think you can make every play. “I think that’s what Jaz’s mindset is.” SEE CARLSON, PAGE 4B

But it won’t be an upset. JENNI CARLSON Columnist I Oklahoma 45, Baylor 24: For as good as Baylor’s offense can be, its defense can be just that bad. The Sooners will be adjusting to life without Ryan Broyles, but the Bears should help ease them into it. TRAVIS HANEY Columnist I Oklahoma 49, Baylor 28: This game plays out about like you’d expect, based on the first two-thirds of the season. Baylor’s offense is potent enough that you’re not going to keep it off the scoreboard. And its defense has been dreadful. Oklahoma will show it can move the ball and score without Broyles. That’s fine against Baylor, and even Iowa State, but what about Dec. 3? MIKE BALDWIN Columnist I Oklahoma 40, Baylor 27: The Sooners are 20-0 all-time against the Bears. Baylor’s defense is horrible, which is why the Sooners, despite playing without Broyles and Dominique Whaley, should win by double digits. But Baylor, led by QB Robert Griffin, has some offensive weapons. RYAN ABER Columnist I Oklahoma 35, Baylor 24: Robert Griffin III will give the Sooners some troubles but OU makes it through in its first full game since losing Broyles for the year.

SATURDAY’S BOX TRIBUTE Oklahoma defensive tackle Casey Walker will wear the No. 12 jersey against Baylor on Saturday as part of OU’s weekly tribute to the late Austin Box. The Sooners are having a different defensive player wear Box’s old jersey number each week of this season. Box died in May of an overdose of painkillers. He would have been a senior this season and was in line to be the Sooners’ starting middle linebacker.

SOONERSPREGAME POINT/ COUNTERPOINT

Who will step up in Ryan Broyles’ absence? In Ryan Broyles’ absence, someone from Oklahoma’s receiving corps must emerge as a dependable, consistent target for Landry Jones in the Sooners offense. Which sophomore will be OU’s leading receiver Saturday against Baylor, Kenny Stills or Jaz Reynolds? Jenni Carlson, columnist: Kenny Stills Stills is a go-to receiver. He just happened to play his last year and a half with a guy the Sooners went to more. Without Broyles, Stills will emerge as the guy for the OU passing game. Against Baylor’s horrendous secondary, Stills will show what he’s capable of. The Bears may decide to double Stills, but they just aren’t good enough to stop him. Stills is a guy who’s already shown a connection with Sooner quarterback Landry Jones. There are more of those to come, and while no one wanted Broyles to finish his career like this, Stills is ready for his close up. He has star power, and there’s no doubt that in this first game without Broyles, he’ll do everything imaginable to let his teammates and the college football world know that the Sooner passing game will be just fine. Travis Haney, OU writer: Jaz Reynolds Teams, including Baylor, recognize that Stills was the No. 2 receiver on the team, now making him the No. 1. Therefore, with defenses locking down on Stills, that will create more mismatches for Jaz Reynolds. Reynolds’ body — and hand — size is a real asset for the sophomore. It’s obvious he’s gaining confidence, game by game and week by week. Stills will make some plays and catches, but don’t be at all surprised when Reynolds winds up with something like seven catches for 150 yards and a score. You could make the argument that the real question with Reynolds should be, How many catches will be onehanded?

How Bell became OU’s Belldozer RED ZONE SOLUTION | SOONERS USE QB FOR SCORING PUNCH

NORMAN — Reporters have impatiently waited each of the past two Mondays for Oklahoma’s new offensive toy to appear in the post-practice interview room inside the Switzer Center. The wait ended fruitlessly, each time. No Blake Bell sightings. Don’t misunderstand. It’s not a product of Bell becoming some sort of prima donna now that he’s a short-yardage and goalline factor — a big one, literally and metaphorically — for the offensively evolving Sooners. Bell is, by all accounts, an oversized but understated kid from Kansas. No, conventional wisdom around the team’s complex is that co-offensive coordinator Josh Heupel — a former OU quarterback himself, of course — is shielding young Bell from a wave of attention as he continues to adjust to the new role. It’s worth noting that Bell has become someone to shield in his redshirt freshman season. That wasn’t expected in August. Or even early October. “He’s one of those kids who’s going to wait for his opportunity and make the best of it,” said Alan Schuckman, Bell’s high school coach at Bishop Carroll in Wichita. “I’ve never doubted his ability.” But Schuckman says this is a different-looking Bell than the one who guided the Eagles to a 22-2 record in two seasons. He was listed at 6 foot 5 and 212 pounds coming out of high school. Now, after a redshirt season, he’s listed at 6 foot 6 and 245 pounds by OU, and Bell says it’s more like 255. Blake went from Bell to Belldozer. “A little bit of extra weight helps,” said fullback Aaron Ripkowski,

one of the vital blockers in the Bell formation. Ripkowski added sometimes he feels a shove from behind — from Bell. It’s no wonder teams are struggling to stop him, even when they know he’s going to run in short-yardage scenarios. “He’s a big, tough guy,” OU coach Bob Stoops said. “I think the more and more comfortable he gets in it, the more he’ll improve in it.” That much as already been evident. The “heavy” or “cat” set was unveiled at Kansas State, where Bell rushed five times for 7 yards and scored his first career touchdown. By the time he was employed in short-yardage situations against Texas A&M the following week — and Stoops used Bell all over the field — he appeared far more sure of what he was doing. Oklahoma added new components to the BellBone, too. Once, the Sooners handed off to Ryan Broyles on a jet sweep type of play, after faking the handoff several times. (It picked up a first down.) Later, OU gave Bell the green light to throw a short route in the flat, but he waited too long and missed his target. He also had Kenny Stills open downfield, but Stoops surmised

Bell wasn’t yet confident enough to throw the deep pass. He’ll get there, Stoops said. “I want to see us develop even more throwing off of it,” he said. “It’s infinite what you can do with it.” Stoops, though, wanted to ensure that the college football planet — and starter Landry Jones — knew OU wasn’t going to become all Belldozer, all the time. This is still a pass-first type of offense. But the formation isn’t going anywhere, either. Bell is perhaps just getting started — and not just when OU needs a yard or 2. This playing time has made him, in some sense, a more valuable cog than No. 2 quarterback Drew Allen. Come spring, if Jones does move on to the NFL, Bell’s experience this fall could push him along toward the starting job. “I think it’s huge,” Schuckman said. “When he starts competing for the No. 1 job, it’s going to be a huge advantage. It’s reps. And it’s quality reps — not when OU is up by 40 points. “It’s third down, and you’ve got to convert to keep a drive alive.” The Belldozer has proved he is capable of that.

WELCOME TO MY WORLD: OU PUNTER TRESS WAY

Punters, kickers feel the pressure, too Kickers and punters have unique routines but play an integral part in the outcome of games, including Oklahoma punter Tress Way. Way spoke with The Oklahoman about his routine and the pressure of his position. I When I’m punting during practice for a lot of guys it’s a 10- or 15-minute break. They actually like it when I’m out there because it’s break time for a lot of them. I All the other players stay so busy with all the meetings and drills. We have more time on our hands. Our mind starts to wander a little bit. We’re a

Tress Way OU punter

little different. We know we have the life. We don’t try to deny it. I’ve heard some friends kick at other schools say they have it hard. No, they don’t. Kick-

ers and punters have it easy compared to everybody else. But there is more pressure since we only have a few plays to do something good. I I get some respect (from position players) because when we run punt returns (in practice) I get to scramble out (on a fake punt). The other guys kick field goals all day. I get to mess around a little. I The strength coaches sometimes come over and say, ‘Tress, we know you’re into it but you have to stay back.’ There’s a line we can’t go past. That’s hard for me when someone like Frank (Alexander)

gets a big interception. I’m usually two or three yards onto the field pumping my fist. I We have a three-game season. That’s what coach (Bob Stoops) told us during our scouting report on Baylor. We’ve been fortunate some doors have opened up. Maybe we can win out and still be in the national title race. After the loss to Texas Tech we got that bitter taste out of mouths but had to trust the process, hope something great was going to happen. We’ve had some luck, but our focus is on Baylor.

Carlson: Jaz helps to replace Broyles FROM PAGE 3B

Sure looks that way. No where is that more evident than with those one-handed grabs. They have looked as effortless as they were spectacular. The first came in the second quarter Kansas State. Reynolds was defended down the right sideline, but Sooner quarterback Landry Jones lofted the ball toward him. Reynolds popped the ball up to himself with his left hand, then corralled it

with his right. A quarter later, he snagged another pass with his right hand, but this one was a bullet. It was just a little wide of Reynolds, who was streaking into the end zone, and it would’ve been difficult to get his left hand there. Not that he needed it. The spinning laces froze as soon as the ball hit Reynolds’ hand. “I’ve never seen anybody just pluck it out (of the air) like that,” Miller

said. “Just one hand.” Reynolds snagged another one-handed touchdown the following week against Texas A&M. Jones lofted the ball toward him, but Reynolds couldn’t free his left arm from a defender. He just cradled the ball into his body with his right hand. Talk about using every bit of those 9 ¼-inch hands. His spectacular catches might have opened the college football world’s eyes to what Reynolds can

do, but really, it’s his continued consistency that will be absolutely vital to these Broyles-less Sooners. “Make the plays that come to you,” Reynolds said of his mentality. “If Landry puts it up to you, you’ve just got to catch it.” Reynolds has shown he’s more than capable of doing that whether he’s using one or two of those gigantic hands.

Missouri coach’s real punishment is embarrassment There is no good time for a football coach to be arrested on a DWI charge. The wake of the Penn State scandal is among the worst times. Missouri coach Gary Pinkel is suspended for his team’s Berry home game against Tramel Texas Tech on Satbtramel@ urday, after being opubco.com charged with a DWI on Wednesday night. The suspension BIG 12 PREGAME was a no-brainer for Twitter: @BerryTramel Mizzou athletic director Mike Alden. You can’t suspend ballplayers for such actions, then let a coach skate. Truth is, Pinkel probably deserved worse. He has suspended players for two games for drunk-driving charges. But Pinkel is facing a fairly stiff financial penalty — $52,000 in lost salary, plus lost potential bonuses that could have reached $300,000 — and his real punishment is embarrassment. Coaches preach discipline, but Pinkel’s words will ring hollow for awhile. He will have a long path back to getting the trust of his players, his employers and his fans. There’s not a lot of sympathy across the nation for football coaches who don’t do the right thing. Joe Paterno made that clear. Pinkel is not deified like Paterno was, but he’s an excellent coach who has elevated the Missouri program. A month ago, he would garner more support from all corners. Today, not so much. How will Pinkel’s absence affect the Tigers? Who knows? Missouri is blessed that it plays Tech, a shell of the Red Raiders we’ve come to know. Tech has lost five of six games, the only victory the inexplicable upset of OU. The Red Raiders have been fangless the last three weeks, losing to Iowa State (41-7), Texas (52-20) and OSU (66-6). Hard to imagine a scenario by which Tech upsets Missouri. So Pinkel figures to escape the sting of costing his team a victory. But the other arrows will still come his way.

UPSET SPECIAL

Kansas State over Texas Nebraska had a hard time beating Texas. OSU did, too, until the Brandon Weeden era. Kansas State? No problem. The ’Cats even beat Texas twice under beleaguered coach Ron Prince. And the Longhorns’ only two victories ever over KSU (2002, 2003) came in tight games that could have gone either way. Saturday in Austin, a really good KSU team plays a mediocre Texas team. Bill Snyder has the 8-2 Wildcats playing excellent football. Win this game, and KSU likely finishes 10-2 and in the Cotton Bowl. For some reason, the Wildcats are nine-point underdogs vs. Texas. The wrong team is favored. Go with K-State in the upset. I Big 12 Upset Special record: 4-7

ON THE HOT SEAT

Texas Tech QB Seth Doege Through seven games, junior Seth Doege appeared to be falling into line with Texas Tech’s efficient quarterbacks. Kliff Kingsbury, Cody Hodges, Sonny Cumbie, Graham Harrell. But Tech has lost three straight games, during which Doege has thrown just two touchdown passes. And the quarterback who looked so flawless in a 41-38 upset of Oklahoma suddenly looks shaky. In a 66-6 loss to Oklahoma State last Saturday, Doege’s throws were off target and ineffective. Like all Tech quarterbacks, Doege’s overall numbers are striking: 24 TDs, seven interceptions, 67.6 completion percentage. But Doege’s conference numbers are less impressive: 13 TDs, seven interceptions. Tech, 5-5, has two games left to get bowl eligible, including Saturday against Missouri. Time for Doege to show that he belongs in the Tech quarterback club.

THE LIST

Big 12 games I 1. Kansas State at Texas: Does UT have a quarterback? K-State does. I 2. Oklahoma at Baylor: Sooners 20-0 vs. Baylor.

Enduring another tragedy

BY JOHN HELSLEY

On Jan. 27, 2001, when a plane carrying 10 members of the Oklahoma State men’s basketball travel party crashed in a frozen field near Strasburg, Colo., weeping fans of the Cowboys swore they would never forget their fallen 10. “We Will Remember” became the resounding refrain from those in orange and black, who indeed never have forgotten. Sadly, now there are more to remember. OSU women’s basketball coach Kurt Budke, assistant coach Miranda Serna and two others died Thursday in a single-engine airplane crash about 45 miles west of Little Rock near Perryville, Ark. Also killed were the pilot, former Oklahoma state Sen. Olin Branstetter and his wife, Paula. Lost a decade ago were OSU basketball players Nate Fleming and Daniel Lawson; publicist Will Hancock; basketball operations director Pat Noyes; trainer Brian Luinstra; manager Jared Weiberg; radio engineer Kendall Durfey; broadcaster Bill Teegins; and pilots Denver Mills and Bjorn Fahlstrom. Death supposedly comes in threes. For OSU, tragedies come in 10s. Thursday’s crash came 10 years and 10 months from a previous crash that claimed 10 lives. The last two plane crashes to kill members of an American college sports team have victimized the exact same school (see list).

Kurt Budke stood there a month ago at Big 12 Media Day, talking Kansas City Royals baseball. Who talks Royals baseball in October? Except the Cardinals and Rangers were playing Game 1 of the World Series that night, taking Budke back fondly to 1985, when he was there in Royals Stadium, reveling in his favorite ball team beating St. Louis for the world championship. Budke talked about jumping the wall to race onto the field following the final out, only to be corralled by security guards and literally thrown back into the stands. Not easily discouraged, he found another leaping point, made it successfully down for the celebration and started stuffing dirt from the playing field into his pants pockets. Budke was 24 then. He died at 50 Thursday, lost in a plane crash while on a recruiting trip in Arkansas, still every bit as passionate about the Royals and everything else in his life. That’s the way Budke lived, ever smiling and always filled with purpose, whether it was family or coaching or recruiting or mentoring. “Our coaches guide their students in developing the skills they need in life,” said Oklahoma State president Burns Hargis. “I know of no one that did that better than Kurt.” Budke hoisted up women’s basketball at OSU,

As Oklahoma State coach, Kurt Budke turned around a team that didn’t win any Big 12 games in his debut season. Before coming to Stillwater, Budke was successful at the junior college level, winning four national championships at Trinity Valley Community College.

OSU PLANE CRASH

TUNING IN

Serna was tireless worker, recruiter BY JASON KERSEY Staff Writer jkersey@opubco.com

STILLWATER — Karri Sears called her good friend Miranda Serna at 7:45 Thursday evening. Sears, the Del City girls basketball coach, was on her way back from a scrimmage at Edmond Santa Fe. “I was just on the road, and she crossed my mind,” Sears said. “The phone just kept ringing. It didn’t go to voice mail or anything. “I know that’s a strange thing, but something put her on my mind.” Serna, 36, OSU women’s basketball’s assistant coach and recruiting coordinator, along with Cowgirls head coach Kurt Budke and two others, died Thursday in a plane crash in central Arkansas. Budke and Serna were on a recruiting trip. Sears and Serna became close when OSU began recruiting Toni Young, now a junior forward for the Cowgirls. “From the first time I met her, we just clicked,” Sears said. “If I had a problem, anything with our program, I went to her with advice.” Young, a preseason AllBig 12 pick, was suspended for the first three games of this season for violating team rules. “Toni has had her share of problems,” Sears said. “But (Serna) always called

me and got me involved. “Toni just looked up to her. (Serna) treated her just like a daughter.” Serna was a standout at Eldorado High School in Albuquerque, N.M., where she led the Eagles to a 46-0 record and two straight state titles. After high school, she played one season at Central Arizona College before transferring to Trinity Valley Community College,

where, under Budke, she helped lead the team to the NJCAA national championship in 1996. She finished her playing career at Houston and, after that, returned to Trinity Valley as an assistant under Budke. Serna was an assistant coach at Chicago State and Fresno State before joining Budke’s staff at Louisiana Tech. She followed him to Oklahoma State, where

both have been since 2005. During her coaching career, Serna has developed a reputation as a great recruiter. “She was one of the best recruiters in the country,” said New Mexico coach Yvonne Sanchez. “Just an unbelievable person.” Sanchez is in her first year as New Mexico’s head coach, but was an assistant at the school for the last 11 years. Sanchez also played at Eldorado High School, and remembered watching Serna play for the Eagles. Sanchez also remembers intense recruiting battles with Serna. “We were recruiting the same kids that Oklahoma State got a few years ago, and I wouldn’t talk to Miranda for a while,” she said. “She sent me an email saying she was glad I got the (New Mexico) job, and I sent her one back. “We eventually sat down and talked, and gave each other a big hug.” Sanchez said Serna’s mother, Nettie Herrera, is a New Mexico seasonticket holder. Jim Littell, OSU’s associate head coach who will take over the Cowgirls as interim coach, remembered Serna as a “tireless worker.” “Our kids are totally devastated,” Littell said. “They love coach Budke and love coach Serna. A lot of the reason they are here is because of those two people.”

transforming a team that couldn’t win any of 16 Big 12 games in his debut season into an NCAA Tournament team by Year 2. He recruited a programchanger in Andrea Riley, guided the Cowgirls to the Sweet 16 and even a top-10 place in the polls for the first time in history. “He was a great basketball coach,” said Jim Littell, Budke’s assistant now charged with guiding what will be a challenging and emotional season ahead as interim coach. “But he was a better husband and a better dad and a better friend.” Friday, similar words flowed from across the country in an outpouring of support. Over the airwaves, in statements issued from rival universities and across social media, Budke was remembered for his coaching, yes, but also the way he lived. “Kurt was not only a great basketball coach, but an even better husband and dad,” said Texas Tech coach Kristy Curry. “I have

learned a lot through the years from Kurt on keeping the game in perspective. “Any time we saw each other, sent a text or called, the first thing he would ask me is how (husband) Kelly and the girls were doing. He loved his family and treated his players and staff as a family.” Oral Roberts women’s basketball coach Jerry Finkbeiner said he has five references on his resume, and only one of them is an NCAA Division I coach. “I could have a whole assortment on that references list, but I chose to have Kurt Budke exclusively on my resume,” Finkbeiner said. “It just shows what I thought of him as a man and a coach.” Perhaps the best way to describe Budke is the simplest way: good guy. And consider that the utmost of compliments. Those who encountered Budke, whether rarely or routinely, say he was consistently warm and engaging and inviting. And, they say he never grew into the big-time coach with the equally big-sized ego.

A small-town Kansas man with small-school coaching roots, his buddies in the business back home once ribbed him for coaching “girls,” then celebrated him when he rose through the ranks to enjoy major success. At Trinity Valley Community College, he led the Lady Cardinals to four national championships and two national runner-up finishes in seven seasons. His six straight national title game appearances are an NJCAA record. At the junior college level, Budke’s .898 winning percentage (273-31) is the highest in NJCAA history. He’s the youngest coach to be inducted the National Junior College Athletic Association Hall of Fame. At OSU, he took over a program that had sunk to the bottom of the Big 12 and quickly made it relevant. Hired off the coaching staff at Louisiana Tech, Budke hailed his return home to the Midwest. And while he wasn’t an original member of the OSU family, they adopted him and

he adopted them. For the biggest of games, Budke proudly wore a bright orange blazer provided by an OSU fan, breaking it out for the first time for the Cowgirls’ memorable win over Oklahoma in 2008. “Seven years ago when we walked through these doors and coach walked into the press conference,” to announce his hiring, Littell said, “his zeal for Oklahoma State was incomparable. He loves this place and loved coming in here every day. “Everybody here loved the man. He was far more than just a basketball coach. Talk about being a loving husband and tremendous dad; we would sit around and brag about our kids and how much we love them and watching them grow up in a great community. “This was his dream situation. Every day we would bring a recruit in, he would walk them on the court and say, ‘Look at this place. Look at this place. I love this place.’ And he meant it from the heart.”

play for him. He presented an environment which was relaxing. He made you feel warm and at ease — that always stood out to me.” — Leon Barmore, former coach at Louisiana Tech. “I am devastated by the tragic news of the deaths of Kurt and Miranda. Kurt was a fantastic basketball coach and he was a tremendous competitor. More importantly, though, he was a devoted father and husband, and a humble but courageous leader of young people. Our hearts and prayers go out to Kurt’s wife, Shelley, and their children, and to Miranda’s family, and the families of the other victims as well. Additionally, we are praying for the entire Oklahoma State women’s basketball family.” — Oklahoma coach Sherri Coale. “The entire women’s basketball coaching community is stunned and deeply saddened by the news from Stillwater this morning. Kurt Budke and Miranda Serna were our colleagues and friends. I’ve known Kurt since he was at Trinity Valley Community College. I just can’t believe

it. Our thoughts and prayers are with Oklahoma State University; the Oklahoma State athletic program; the Cowgirls coaches, players and staff; and the family and friends of Kurt, Miranda and the other individuals who died in this tragic accident.” — Beth Bass, CEO of Women’s Basketball Coaches Association.

WHAT THEY ARE SAYING Here is a look at what coaches and administrators from around the country said about the plane crash that claimed the lives of Oklahoma State women’s basketball coach Kurt Budke and assistant coach Miranda Serna: “I just can’t imagine losing one of my players. I can’t even fathom that. And then these girls have lost their coach, we have children who have lost their dad and a wife who has lost her husband. It just, it’s unreal. … I just wish I’d told him more how much he meant to me, just watching him from afar a little bit. … I think they (the women’s team) can play for his spirit when they’re ready to play and play for his love of the game. … I think you will see an inspired group of young women.” — Oklahoma State men’s coach Travis Ford. “I was devastated when I received the call this morning, I just looked at my son and started crying. My first thoughts went to Kurt Budke’s wife, his children and Miranda Serna’s family. I felt connected to Kurt through Coach Barmore

and his association with Louisiana Tech and I also recruited some of his players while he was at Trinity Valley and of course though the Big 12. He and his staff have done an outstanding job at Oklahoma State and I am sure his work will be carried on there. It just hits home with all of us in this profession that truly we just coach a game. There’s a bigger picture out there and it’s not a basketball game, it puts life in perspective. I feel for the Oklahoma State community, how many more tragedies can they endure? I told Jim Littell (associate head coach) this morning, whatever we can do, please allow us to do it. Oklahoma State and women’s basketball have lost two more fine people and our thoughts are with the families and Cowgirl student-athletes during this most difficult time.” — Baylor coach Kim Mulkey. “We lost a family man and a great friend. When I retired after 25 years, you don’t want just anyone to take your place. I thought Kurt was the right guy to do it … This was a player’s coach. The players loved to

“He stood out among all the other candidates. His work ethic and dedication to the game of basketball. He was a real student of the game. He was an outstanding family man and community man. It’s a tragic loss to Oklahoma state. He won the first national championship here in 199394 and that was just the beginning for him.” — Former Trinity Valley Community College athletic director Leon Spencer, who hired Budke. "Our thoughts and prayers are with the families of Coach Budke and Coach Serna, Cowgirl basketball and the countless others deeply affected by this terrible news.” — OSU wrestling coach John Smith FROM STAFF REPORTS

Sutton: Budke ‘a dear friend’ BY BERRY TRAMEL Staff Writer btramel@opubco.com

Eddie Sutton is headed to Kansas City, Mo., this weekend. He’s being inducted Sunday night into the College Basketball Hall of Fame. When he returns, he plans a trip to Stillwater. There’s a basketball team that might draw strength from his words. OSU women’s coach Kurt Budke and assistant coach Miranda Serna died Thursday night in an Arkansas plane crash — 10 years and 10 months after 10 members of Sutton’s OSU men’s basketball traveling party died in a plane crash. “A catastrophe,” Sutton called it. “Certainly brought back a lot of unpleasant memories.” But Sutton said he would try, if he addresses the Cowgirls next week. “You just don’t get over that very quickly,” Sutton said. Sutton and Budke had lunch together a few weeks ago. Sutton still was coaching the Cowboys when Budke arrived in 2005.

“Kurt was a dear friend,” Sutton said. “I tried to help him a little bit when he came (in 2005). Really a quality human being. “It has not been a good day. Has not been a good day for many people.” Sutton was dismayed at the odds of two OSU plane crashes in an 11-year period. “You know, there are so

many coaches today that fly private aircraft,” Sutton said. “To think we’re the only ones to lose someone in an 11-year period … That is weird. “You’d think if a plane went down, it would go down someplace else. You wonder why something like that would happen. But accidents do happen.”

How OSU’s travel policy changed A look at the events that influenced and changed Oklahoma State’s athletic travel policy. I Jan. 27, 2001: A Beechcraft King Air 200, owned by North Bay Charter LLC and donated by an OSU booster, crashes in a field near Strasburg, Colo., killing 10 members of the Oklahoma State men’s basketball travel party. Snow was falling, visibility was about one mile and it was getting dark. The National Transportation Safety Board ruled pilot disorientation combined with electrical failure caused the crash, which occurred 20 minutes after takeoff following a game at the University of Colorado in Boulder. Killed were basketball players Nate Fleming and Daniel Lawson; publicist Will Hancock; basketball operations director Pat Noyes; trainer Brian Luinstra; manager Jared Weiberg; radio engineer Kendall Durfey; broadcaster Bill Teegins; pilot Denver Mills and Bjorn Fahlstrom, referred to in the safety board report as the second pilot who was not a required flight crew member.

sports. “How many more tragedies can they endure?” Baylor women’s coach Kim Mulkey asked. Zero would be nice. On Friday morning, dazed OSU president Burns Hargis tried to explain the inexplicable. “Well, this is obviously an incredibly devastating event,” Hargis said, shutting his eyes to fight back tears. “It’s our worst nightmare.” Again. “When something like this happens, and God forbid it happened again, we have to pull together,” Hargis said. Eddie Sutton was the Cowboys’ coach of the 10 to remember and spoke of the Cowgirls coach who was lost Thursday. “Kurt Budke was a wonderful coach,” Sutton said. “This is just another catastrophe. … This is a reminder. Not a day goes by that I don’t think of it, and this brings it all back.” For anyone somehow able to climb back in the saddle after the first tragedy, this second go-round no doubt knocked them back in the dirt. “We’re all just stunned, saddened and shocked,” ESPN analyst and former

force to develop a better travel policy for the university’s athletic teams. In addition to university, aviation and travel officials, several crash victims’ family members also serve on the committee. The plane that crashed was one of three small aircraft used by the OSU men’s team to travel. Thereafter, the team either took commercial flights or chartered a plane with Great Plains Airlines. I 2002: School’s new travel policy is approved. Travel budgets are increased, safety consultants are hired, student-athletes are prohibited from flying on donated aircraft. Coaches and their assistants, however, are given more discretion when flying on planes owned by OSU alumni and boosters. Travel arrangements on charter or time-share aircraft are made through the athletic department and not informally between coaches and owners of aircraft. The policy puts administrators in greater control of flight scheduling and requires two pilots on any flights involving studentathletes. The policy also has stricter pilot requirements, forbids anyone but pilots to be in the cockpit, and stricter aircraft performance and maintenance require-

ments. OSU revisits the policy every few years and updates it. Associate athletic director Marty Sargent said several other universities changed their travel policy following the crash. The NCAA puts together a publication on the best transportation safety practices and sends it to all member institutions. I 2004: Five families of those killed in the OSU crash settle lawsuits with several companies associated with the aircraft and the estate of Mills. Four other families had reached settlements earlier. I 2005: Raytheon Co., a defendant and the company that manufactured the plane, settles with the families. I Nov. 17, 2011: Oklahoma State women’s basketball coach Kurt Budke and three others are killed in the crash of a single-engine plane in a Central Arkansas forest. The Piper-PA-28-180 Cherokee aircraft, manufactured in 1964, was piloted by 82-year-old former Oklahoma state senator Olin Branstetter. It crashed in rugged terrain in the Ouachita National Forest’s Winona Wildlife Management Area. BY JOHN ROHDE The Tulsa World contributed to this report.

Try as she did, Oklahoma women’s basketball coach Sherri Coale never was able to give Oklahoma State coach Kurt Budke any grief about the bright orange sport coat he wore during Bedlam games. Whenever the coaches met at midcourt for a pregame handshake, Coale would break out into a smile and shake her head while evaluating Budke’s wardrobe. “I would always want to make fun of him,” Coale admitted, “but one of the things I loved about the guy is he would beat me to the punch every time. I wouldn’t even get to make a snide comment about his neon jacket because he would beat me to it. He had such a nice way about him in terms of self-deprecating humor.” Budke and assistant coach Miranda Serna died in a single-engine airplane crash at 4:30 p.m. Thursday about 45 miles west of Perryville, Ark. Budke was 50. Serna was 36. Also killed were the pilot, former state senator Olin Branstetter, 82, and his wife, Paula, 79. News of the crash stunned the national fraternity of college basketball coaches, both women and men. “I was devastated when I received the call (Friday) morning,” Baylor coach Kim Mulkey said in a statement. “I just looked at my son and started crying. My first thoughts

went to Kurt Budke’s wife, his children and Miranda Serna’s family.” Many of Budke’s connections in the Big 12 came through Louisiana Tech, where he previously served as a head coach and assistant before coming to OSU in 2005. Gary Blair, coach of defending national champion Texas A&M and a former Louisiana Tech assistant, said he felt closest to Budke. “He was somebody I talked to regularly on the phone just about the game itself and the direction we were going,” Blair said. “He was a devout family man and the conversation never stopped without us talking about our own kids, not just the players we coached. Miranda was one of the young rising stars in recruiting and as an assistant coach. “I talked to him two weeks ago about general stuff on recruiting and possibly continuing to play after we went to the SEC. We both agreed it would probably take a few years, but we were both going to miss the games we’ve had over the past years.” The youngest coach in the National Junior College Athletic Association’s Hall of Fame, Budke went a combined 273-31 (.898), the highest winning percentage in NJCAA history. Budke was 80-16 (.833) at Louisiana Tech before coming to OSU seven seasons ago. Louisiana Tech also is where Mulkey excelled as an All-American point guard, going 130-6 overall and winning two

national titles under coach Leon Barmore. “I felt connected to Kurt through coach Barmore and his association with Louisiana Tech, and I also recruited some of his players while he was at Trinity Valley and, of course, through the Big 12,” Mulkey said. “He and his staff have done an outstanding job at Oklahoma State and I am sure his work will be carried on there.” OSU associate head coach Jim Littell has been appointed interim head coach and will guide the Cowgirls the remainder of the season. “I told Jim Littell this morning, ‘Whatever we can do, please allow us to do it,’ ” Mulkey said. Iowa State coach Bill Fennelly said: “I am truly numb after hearing of the loss of coach Budke and coach Serna. Now we all must reach out to help Kurt’s family and the entire OSU community.” The Cowgirls went 11283 (.574) under Budke, which includes a debut season of 6-22 (. 214). In the three seasons before his arrival, OSU went 2361 (.274). Coale said even in defeat, Budke’s personality shined. The Sooners hit 14 3-pointers during an 8166 victory over the Cowgirls at OU last season. “On the 13th one, he stood up, looked down at our bench and held both hands out as if to say, ‘Hey, what can you do?’ ” Coale recalled with a chuckle. “He made the rivalry fun again. I will say that for sure.”

OSU point guard Doug Gottlieb said. “That was a plane crash (in 2001) that rocked the university to its core and this one will do no less.” After the OSU men’s plane crash, Oklahoma

women’s basketball coach Sherri Coale wondered, “How can I help my team not be afraid to fly?” “A trip we took right after the OSU crash was one of the roughest charter flights I’ve ever been on,”

Coale said. “We went through weather. It was a horrible experience. I remember LaNeishea Caufield being absolutely terrified. Once we landed, we toyed with the idea of renting vans and driving back. It was that difficult for those involved. “You never got on a plane and started watching game film or read a magazine. You got on a plane, said prayers and kind of looked around. Everyone held their breath. It was a different time.” Coale spoke these words 90 minutes before her team boarded a commercial flight to Albuquerque,

N.M., for Saturday’s game against New Mexico — which happened to be Serna’s home state. The Sooners had a black band honoring OSU sewn on their jerseys for Saturday’s game and will have a permanent patch attached for the rest of the season. Coale said her team will honor the Cowgirls before their first Bedlam game on Jan. 14 in Gallagher-Iba Arena. The Sooners also will acknowledge OSU in a private pregame moment before every game. “Life is precious,” said Gary Blair, coach of the national champion Texas A&M women’s basketball

team. “We must enjoy it and we must respect it because it can be taken away at any time. I hope the basketball world and the sports world will honor coach Budke and Miranda in the right way and help the rest of us realize how special our families and the extended families of our teams are.” OSU’s family has honored its fallen 10 for 10 years and 10 months, and no doubt will do the same for this tragedy. This, too, shall pass, though very slowly. Please, no more repeats. A heart can break only so many times.

NCAA WOMEN’S SOCCER TOURNAMENT: OKLAHOMA STATE 1, ILLINOIS 0

Heavy-hearted Cowgirls advance in NCAA BY DARNELL MAYBERRY Staff Writer dmayberry@opubco.com

STILLWATER — Their makeshift bracelets said it all. The two words, written in all caps, explained that in this contest, the home team was playing for more than themselves. “COWGIRL,” the message began in bold black letters. “FAMILY,” it read just below in bright orange. The Oklahoma State women’s soccer team, playing with heavy hearts and meandering minds, took a 1-0 victory over Illinois on Friday night in the second round of the NCAA Women’s Division I Soccer Championships. Those bracelets were the Cowgirls’ way of showing support for the plane crash that took the lives of women’s basketball coach Kurt Budke and assistant Miranda Serna, along with two others. The team decided to make and wear the bracelets shortly after a few players ran into the women’s basketball team as they were entering the

locker room to prepare for the Fighting Illini. “That really (meant a lot) to everybody and helped us out,” said goalkeeper AD Franch, who hugged each member of the basketball team before going out and recording six saves. “Deep down, there’s that belief that they’re

right there with us, and that’s how I felt tonight. Every save I made, I just felt like there was someone right there with me. I think that’s what helped us out with the shutout.” The Cowgirls now move on to face Maryland on Sunday at 1 p.m. But the victory brought only a

small measure of solace to a group that was so close to the tragedy. Assistant coach Karen Hancock lost her husband, Will, in the 2001 plane crash that killed 10 people, including members of the Oklahoma State men’s basketball team. She admitted to losing control of her thoughts throughout Friday’s game and shortly after the final horn conceded that the win “really doesn’t mean too much.” “I can’t remember if we won or lost against Colorado the night my husband’s plane crashed in 2001,” Hancock said. “But I know we lost 10 guys. That never leaves me.” Senior defender Melinda Mercado played for Budke as a freshman on the women’s basketball team. She struggled with the news early in the day before being forced to turn her focus to her team’s game. “He was just very loving, very open, very approachable with all the girls,” Mercado remembered of Budke. “A lot of the girls, I know, looked up to him more as like a sec-

ond father figure.” The Cowboys wrestling team postponed matches scheduled for Friday and Sunday. But members of Oklahoma State’s administration, along with women’s soccer coach Colin Carmichael, jointly decided to play Friday’s game partly because it was an NCAA Tournament event, and postponement would have impacted several other teams. “We talked with our team before the game about using this as a way possibly to bring a little bit of happiness to the OSU family for just a brief time,” said Carmichael, who wore orange ribbons along with his staff to honor the victims. Oklahoma State athletic director Mike Holder addressed the team before the game. He told the players that Budke and Serna would have wanted them to go out and get the win. When senior midfielder Annika Niemeier took a flawless feed from Krista Lopez in front of the net and finished it with a game-winning strike, it set off a celebration on the

field and in the stands that felt unlike any other goal. The “Cowgirl Family” had temporarily found happiness. “It was big,” Niemeier said.

Memorial service planned FROM STAFF REPORTS

Oklahoma State spokesman Gary Shutt said the school is planning a memorial service to celebrate the lives of Kurt Budke and Miranda Serna. The memorial service will be held Monday at Gallagher-Iba Arena at 1 p.m. OSU has canceled classes from 12:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. Monday so students can attend.

Sporting events canceled

Several OSU sporting events were canceled as a result of the plane crash. The women’s basketball team was scheduled to play two games this weekend — Saturday vs. Grambling State and Sunday vs. UT-Arlington — but both games have been canceled. The next OSU women’s game will likely be Nov. 26

vs. Coppin State. The OSU wrestling squad also canceled two weekend matches. OSU was scheduled to face Rutgers on Friday and Missouri on Sunday, but both matches will be moved to a later date. The Cowboys wrestling squad’s next scheduled match is Nov. 25 at Iowa State.

Remembrances planned Several schools across the country planned to honor OSU and the lives lost in upcoming sporting events. Here’s a look at some of those remembrances: I The Oklahoma State men’s basketball team will wear special logos on their jerseys with initials for the four people killed in the crash.

I The Grambling State women’s team, already in town to play the Cowgirls, prayed around the 2001 plane crash memorial and signed a memorial banner in Gallagher-Iba Arena.

OSSAA denies Simek hardship exemption Staff Writer jkersey@opubco.com

GUTHRIE — The Oklahoma Sec-

ondary School Activities Association has denied Guthrie’s hardship exemption application for senior Clint Simek. George Freedman, the Simek family attorney, also said the family will not file an injunction to allow Simek to participate, which could have held up the Class 5A playoffs. Simek was ruled ineligible by the OSSAA two weeks ago after the as-

sociation said his family never made a bona fide move from Prague in March. The OSSAA initially ruled that Class 5A No. 1 Guthrie must forfeit eight of its wins, but that decision was overturned on an appeal to the OSSAA’s board of directors. Before the forfeits were appealed, the board heard a separate appeal regarding Simek’s eligibility, but it was denied. During the hearing on Nov. 9, the board of directors reiterated several times that the Simek family did nothing wrong and that Simek’s in-

eligibility was the result of mistakes made by Guthrie administrators. In response to the denied appeal, Guthrie Public Schools submitted a hardship exemption application on Simek’s behalf. Freedman said the Simek family wouldn’t take further action at this time because it did not want to hold up the playoffs. Guthrie opened the Class 5A playoffs with a 53-7 win over Durant at Jelsma Stadium last Saturday. The Bluejays hosted No. 5 Tulsa East Central on Friday in a quarterfinal.

SMU AT HOUSTON: 2:30 P.M., FSOK (COX 37)

Jones can see a bit of Rodgers in Keenum BY CHRIS DUNCAN AP Sports Writer

HOUSTON — SMU coach June Jones sees a lot of another quarterback in Houston’s Case Keenum, just not the one you’d expect. When he coached Hawaii, Jones helped Tim Chang become the NCAA’s career leader in total offense and passing yards. Keenum has eclipsed Chang’s records — and several others — while guiding No. 11 Houston (10-0, 6-0 Conference USA) to the best start in program history. Jones and the Mustangs (6-4, 4-2) will face Keenum and the Cougars’ top-ranked offense on Saturday at Robertson Stadium. As he’s watched Keenum pick apart defenses this season, Jones is reminded not of Chang, but more of Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers. “Their quarterback knows where to put the ball similar to what you watch with Rodgers on film,” Jones said. “A guy can be covered and he knows where to throw the ball and their receivers make plays for them.” Jones and Chang used the old run-and-shoot offense that Houston ran in the late 1980s and early

1990s. The Cougars are running a slightly different spread offense and putting up historic numbers. Houston is averaging 629 yards per game, currently the most of any team in Football Bowl Subdivision history. The Cougars also are putting up 54.7 points per game, second only to the undefeated 1944 Army squad (56 points per game) that won the national championship. “They’re probably one of the most productive

teams I’ve looked at on film as far as moving the football,” Jones said. Despite collecting video-game statistics, the Cougars have largely flown under the national radar this year because of limited television exposure. The program will get its longawaited turn in the spotlight on Saturday morning, with ESPN’s popular “Gameday” program setting up shop on campus for the first time. “For our university it is fantastic,” coach Kevin

Sumlin said. “Not just for football, but for our city. It is a window to the world for the University of Houston. It is great, especially for recruiting. It validates what we are trying to do.” The team’s success this season has aligned perfectly with the other big projects in the works at Houston. The Cougars are mentioned as a likely candidate to join the reformed Big East, and the school also is moving ahead with plans to build a new football sta-

dium and renovate its rundown basketball arena in the coming years. “I definitely believe there is some buzz and it’s good for our fans,” junior defensive lineman Dominic Miller said. “It is a compliment to our fans and to us, but we’ve got to go out there and keep on preparing and not let it get to our head.” It’s understandable how the Cougars could become complacent, because they’ve breezed through their last five games by an average score of 64-19 and hit 73 twice in that span. But SMU’s defense, at least statistically, is a cut above the ones Keenum has been shredding over the past month, ranking 33rd nationally (345.2 yards per game) and 44th in points allowed (23.3 per game). The Mustangs’ bigger problem could be on offense. Running back Zach Line, Conference USA’s leading rusher, had season-ending surgery on a toe on his left foot on Thursday. Sumlin is still wary of SMU, even though the Cougars have won eight of the past nine meetings. “You look at the league and every week there is a surprising score,” Sumlin said. “A lot of teams in this league are capable of beat-

ing anybody. They have some good players and are well coached. They are not going to be intimidated coming in here at all.” Houston is tied with Tulsa (7-3, 6-0) atop the league’s West Division, and victories by both teams on Saturday will set up a winner-take-all showdown next week. But Houston’s players have been handling questions for weeks about a prize beyond a Conference USA championship. The Cougars are one of only three unbeaten teams remaining in the FBS, and are parked at No. 11 in the Bowl Championship Series standings. As long as the lopsided victories keep coming, Houston will stay in the hunt for a big-money BCS berth. “It’s a place all teams want to be,” Keenum said. “You don’t want to have to count on any other games, any other teams, or any other committees to decide where you want to play. As far as our mindset, it hasn’t changed a whole lot. We can treat it like a playoff like we have every week, because college football is like a playoff every week. “It doesn’t matter what’s happened or what’s going to happen. All that matters is this week.”

Floyd’s season is getting better BY NANCY ARMOUR AP National Writer

SOUTH BEND, Ind. — Ask the Notre Dame coaches what they’ll miss most about Michael Floyd, and his stats are the last thing they mention. Instead of his school record for catches, they talk about his dedication to practice. Instead of his Notre Dame mark for yards receiving, they tell of a player who pulls underclassmen aside to give them tips and advice, as much a coach as anyone on the staff. And instead of all those touchdown receptions, they proudly describe a young man who turned his life around following a drunken-driving arrest in the spring, his third alcohol-related brush with the law in two years. “This is why I coach,” Irish coach Brian Kelly said this week. “To see a young man change the course of his life, and see that on a day-to-day basis, it’s probably as rewarding as any singular victory. And that’s what Michael Floyd has done. And that feels good as a coach that you

can see a young man who is in a good place. He wasn’t in such a good place, but now he is, and that’s important.” Floyd will play his last game at Notre Dame Stadium on Saturday when the 24th-ranked Irish (7-3) host Boston College (3-7). It’s a day few were certain would come last March, when Floyd was arrested at 3:18 a.m. on a Saturday, after running a stop sign a block from the school’s main entrance. Prosecutors say a breath test showed Floyd had a blood-alcohol level of 0.19 percent, more than double Indiana’s legal limit for driving. Considering Floyd already had been cited twice for underage drinking in his home state of Minnesota, there was the possibility Notre Dame officials might come down hard on him, maybe even throw him out of school. Instead, he was allowed to stay. Kelly suspended him for spring practice, but told Floyd in no uncertain terms that he needed to change his ways. Immediately.

“Mike had every excuse to want to blame someone else. ‘This happened because of this, and that because of this, so I’m going to react this way,’ ” Irish receivers coach Tony Alford said. “He did none of the above. He took complete ownership of every single thing. He’s grown as a man. That’s the biggest thing. He has really, really matured as a young man and that shows in his everyday life. “We all knew he could play. Everybody knows that,” Alford added. “But when you watch the growth and the maturation he’s had, it’s very gratifying to be able to witness that every day.” Kelly reinstated Floyd before the season began, and cynics said it was because the Irish needed Floyd to have any shot at a decent season. Floyd has certainly contributed, ranking ninth in the country with almost eight catches per game. He’s averaging 92 yards receiving, and has seven touchdown receptions. He even scored the first rushing TD of his career.

FORT WORTH, Texas — Fresh off a victory that vaulted them back into the Top 25, the TCU Horned Frogs have to make sure nobody sneaks up on them. It’s already happened twice this season, in the opener at Baylor and at home against SMU. Those losses dropped the Horned Frogs from the rankings and seemingly off the BCS radar only months after capping an undefeated season with a Rose Bowl victory. But by winning on the blue turf of Boise State last Saturday, No. 19 TCU is back in the big picture. The Horned Frogs (8-2, 5-0 Mountain West) will clinch at least a share of the conference title by beating Colorado State (3-6, 1-3) on Saturday. TCU can win it outright by beating the Rams and UNLV on Dec. 3. Both games are at home. Colorado State has lost five straight games and six of seven. Most of those games were at least close, save for a 50-point loss to the same Boise State club that TCU just beat. That’s all the more reason Horned Frogs coach Gary Patterson has to make sure his club doesn’t have a letdown. Patterson is using the chance of cracking the BCS as a motivator. It

would take many things falling into place, but the opportunity exists. “There are a couple teams ahead of us, so we need to climb a few notches in the BCS standings,” Patterson said. “The biggest thing we can do is what we did a year ago. You have to control your own business and go win.” As if spoiling BCS hopes isn’t enough of a rallying cry for the Rams, there’s also the notion of standing up for the conference. TCU is jumping to the Big 12 next season, so Colorado State would love to end the Horned Frogs’ streak of 22 straight conference wins dating to November 2008. That may be asking for a lot, though, especially if quarterback Pete Thomas can’t play because of a

knee injury and the Rams end up starting true freshman Garrett Grayson. Grayson replaced Thomas last game and ran for a touchdown and a 2-point conversion. He was 6 of 15 for 26 yards and an interception. “We’ve come close during the season to putting him in,” coach Steve Fairchild said. “He’ll play now. He’ll play some every game. We’ve got to commit to him. Even when Pete (Thomas) is back, be it this week or next week. I think Garrett deserves the right to play in the games.” Regardless of the QB, expect the offense to be anchored by Chris Nwoke, who ran for a nationalbest 232 yards last weekend.

Dantren Anderson, Mid-America Nazarene defensive back.

BY SCOTT MUNN Assistant Sports Editor smunn@opubco.com

I Position: Defensive back I Height, weight: 5-10, 185 I Class: Junior I Hometown, high school: Oklahoma City, Putnam City North I Scouting report: Anderson has been a big playmaker on defense for MidAmerica Nazarene, which hosts Southern Nazarene at 1 p.m. Saturday in a first-round NAIA playoff game in Olathe, Kan. The former Putnam North standout has 46 tackles this season as well as two fumble recoveries, a forced fumble, one blocked punt, a blocked field goal and three pass breakups. He also has three interceptions — and two of those came Oct. 15, when the Pioneers whipped SNU 4117 in a regular-season meeting. Anderson is Mid-Am’s ace kickoff returner, too. He has nine returns for 205 total yards (22.7 yards per return). I Anderson was recruited out of high school by a couple of small schools in Oklahoma, including East Central and Southwestern State. He chose MidAmerica Nazarene “because it just felt really good on my visit here. Even though it’s not as close to home, my family tries to come to as many games as they can.” I Southern Nazarene’s roster is full of Oklahoma players, including many from northwest Oklahoma City. Anderson has either been teammates with or faced some Crimson Storm players in high school or Little League. SNU defensive lineman Nick Brock is a sophomore. He and Anderson were PC North teammates. “I’ve played with a lot of them. Some of them were just down the street,” Anderson said. I Anderson said MidAmerica Nazarene is not taking SNU lightly, despite routing the Crimson Storm in October. “We’ve

STATE COLLEGE GAME OF THE DAY SOUTHERN NAZARENE AT MID-AMERICA NAZARENE I What: First-round NAIA playoff game I When: 1 p.m. Saturday I Where: Pioneer Stadium, Olathe, Kan. I Radio/Internet: No radio broadcast is scheduled in the Oklahoma City area. Fans can listen to the game at http:// sports.snu.edu or watch the game via pay-per-view on the Mid-America Nazarene website: http://mnsuports.com. Cost is $6. I Records, rankings: Mid-America Nazarene is 9-1 and No. 4 in the NAIA; Southern Nazarene is 9-2 and ranked No. 14. I Scouting report: Mid-America Nazarene is in the NAIA playoffs for the seventh time. The Pioneers have a 5-8 record in the postseason. Southern Nazarene is making its first playoff appearance after winning the Central States Football League championship. ... These teams met Oct. 15 at Cessna Stadium in Wichita, Kan. The “neutral site” game was won by Mid-America Nazarene, 41-17. The Pioneers held SNU’s oft-potent offense to 275 total yards. MidAmerica Nazarene slapped SNU’s defense for 418 total yards. Dual-threat quarterback Sean Ransberg led MidAmerica Nazarene with three rushing touchdowns and another by pass. ... SNU quarterback Brady Wardlaw has passed for 2,693 yards this season, which ranks No. 7 in the country. He was limited to 155 passing yards Oct. 15, and Oklahoma City native Dantren Anderson picked off two Wardlaw passes. ... Mid-America Nazarene has won 28 consecutive games at Pioneer Stadium. ... If Southern Nazarene wins, its second-round opponent will be announced Sunday.

got a little feel for them, but it’s hard to beat a team twice in the same season. They have a lot of weapons.” I The big weapon is quarterback Brady Wardlaw, who ranks No. 7 in the NAIA with 2,693 passing yards. Wardlaw managed just 155 yards against Mid-Am — and Anderson intercepted the recordsetting QB twice. “I think I just happened to be in the right place at the right time,” Anderson said. “He’s really good. He’s been putting up great numbers all year.”

I On Oct. 24, Anderson was named the NAIA Defensive Player of the Week, his first national honor as a college player. He had several clutch plays in the Pioneers’ 49-39 victory over No. 7-ranked Benedictine (Kan.) on Oct. 22. He had eight tackles, an interception, a blocked field goal and a blocked punt. Anderson also returned a fumble 39 yards for a touchdown. “I didn’t know they (NAIA) had picked me. No one told me until people in the cafeteria come up to me and congratulated me.”

A year before men’s track and field was discontinued, the school had a national champion 1,600-meter relay. The Cavaliers won the 2007 season’s NAIA indoor and outdoor titles.

NORMAN — Steven Pledger returned from a one-game suspension and scored 20 points as Oklahoma beat Coppin State 92-65 on Friday night. Calvin Newell scored 14 points for the Sooners (2-0), and Romero Osby had 11 points and 10 rebounds. Tony Gallo had 22 points and Logan Wiens added 13 for the Eagles (1-2). Pledger didn’t play in the season opener after being suspended for a violation of NCAA rules, playing without permission in a summer league game. Oklahoma outrebounded Coppin State 61-27. Before the game, a moment of silence was held in memory of four people, including Oklahoma State women’s basketball coach Kurt Budke and assistant Miranda Serna, who died in a plane crash in Arkansas on Thursday. The Sooners’ 92 points topped last year’s season high of 84 points. Eleven players scored for Oklahoma. While first-year coach Lon Kruger promised and delivered a more up-tempo style this season, the Sooners weren’t sharp. However, they were effective enough. Oklahoma had 15 turnovers, but offset that by

making 10 of 24 3-point attempts. Tyler Neal and Pledger made three 3pointers each. Coppin State fired 20 3-

pointers in the first half alone and finished with 33 tries behind the arc, making just nine. The Eagles shot 36.4 percent for the

game and had 15 turnovers. The Sooners got 28 fastbreak points to Coppin State’s nine. Oklahoma had 34 points in the paint.

SYRACUSE INVESTIGATION

Barons cruise past Fine: Allegations are ‘patently false’ Abbotsford 4-1 BY JOHN KEKIS AP Sports Writer

FROM STAFF REPORTS

Tanner House and Ryan Keller each had two points Friday night, and the Oklahoma City Barons took sole possession of first place by beating Abbotsford 4-1 in an American Hockey League game at the Cox Center. A crowd of 3,225 watched the Barons improve to 12-4-0-1 and take a two-point standings lead over Abbotsford in the Western Conference’s West Division. The Barons and Heat (11-5-0-1) wrap up a two-game series at 7 p.m. Saturday night in the Cox Center. Oklahoma City had a 2-0 lead after one period and owned a 3-0 advantage just past the midway mark of the second before Abbotsford scored. Keller’s fifth goal of the season, with 14:03 left in the game, gave the Barons some insurance against a division rival that was 9-1 on the road going into Friday night. Tyler Pitlick, Philippe Cornet and Tanner House accounted for the Barons’ other goals. Cornet’s goal was his 12th of the season. He is tied for the league lead with Carter Ashton of the Norfolk Ad-

mirals. Goaltender David LeNeveu made 24 saves for Oklahoma City. The Barons fired 24 shots on Abbotsford goalkeeper Leland Irving.

OILERS RECALL DEFENSEMEN I The Edmonton Oilers recalled defensemen Taylor Chorney and Colten Teubert from the Barons on Friday. Chorney returns to the NHL after just four games with Oklahoma City. Teubert is getting his second promotion this season. He played two games with the Oilers earlier this season. Teubert has played 13 games overall for the Barons, collecting five points and 27 penalty minutes. I To help make up for the losses of Chorney and Teubert, the Barons signed defenseman Dan Ringwald to a player-tryout contract. Ringwald is getting his second stint with the Barons, who brought in the 6-foot-2, 190-pounder from Edmonton’s Double-A affiliate in Stockton, Calif. He had five points in 10 games for the Thunder.

SYRACUSE, N.Y. — Syracuse assistant basketball coach Bernie Fine dismissed as “patently false” allegations that he molested two former ball boys for years, and the university chancellor vowed Friday to “do everything in our power to find the truth.” The school immediately placed Fine on administrative leave “in light of the new allegations” that surfaced Thursday, just two weeks after the Penn State child sex-abuse scandal, and pending an investigation by the Syracuse City Police. Fine, in his 35th season as an assistant on the Syracuse bench, asked for a quick review and expressed confidence he would be vindicated. “Sadly, we live in an allegation-based society and an internet age where in a matter of minutes one’s lifelong reputation can be severely damaged,” Fine said in a statement released by one of his attor-

neys. “I am confident that, as in the past, a review of these allegations will be discredited and restore my reputation. I hope the latest review of these allegations will be conducted expeditiously.” Fine thanked Chancellor Nancy Cantor for her statement that “I should be accorded a fair opportunity to defend myself” and added: “I fully intend to do so. There should never be a rush to judgment when someone’s personal integrity and career are on the line.” Cantor vowed that the school will not turn a blind eye to the allegations made to ESPN. “Let me be clear. We know that many question whether or not a university in today’s world can shine a harsh light on its athletics programs,” Cantor said in an email to students, faculty and staff. “We are aware that many wonder if university administrations are willing to turn a blind eye to wrongdoing that may disrupt a successful sports program. I can as-

sure you I am not, and my fellow administrators are not. We hold everyone in our community to high standards and we don’t tolerate illegal, abusive or unethical behavior — no matter who you are.” She concluded: “At this time, all we really know is that a terrible tragedy is unfolding for both the accuser and the accused. I want you to know that we will do everything in our power to find the truth, and — if and when we do find it — to let you know what we have found.” Both of Fine’s accusers are now adults. Bobby Davis, now 39, told ESPN that Fine molested him beginning in 1984 and that the sexual contact continued until he was around 27. A ball boy for six years, Davis told ESPN that the abuse occurred at Fine’s home, at Syracuse basketball facilities and on team road trips, including the 1987 Final Four, when the Orange lost to Indiana in the national championship game. Davis’ stepbrother,

Mike Lang, 45, who also was a ball boy, told ESPN that Fine molested him starting while he was in fifth or sixth grade. “The dilemma in any situation like this, of course, is that — without corroborating facts, witnesses or confessions — one must avoid an unfair rush to judgment,” Cantor said. “We have all seen terrible injustices done to the innocent accused of heinous crimes. And we’ve all seen situations where the guilty avoid justice.” The chancellor said a man contacted the school in 2005 about allegations he had previously reported to police of abuse in the 1980s and 1990s, but that police had declined to pursue it because the statute of limitations had expired. She said the school conducted its own fourmonth investigation at that time, including interviews with people the accuser said would support his allegations, but all of them “denied any knowledge of wrongful conduct” by Fine.

Days after losing the job he held for nearly a half century, former Penn State coach Joe Paterno was diagnosed with a treatable form of lung cancer. Scott Paterno, the Hall of Fame coach’s son, said in a statement provided Friday to The Associated Press that his father’s doctors are optimistic the 84-year-old Paterno will make a full recovery. The news came shortly after Penn State said the NCAA would look into the school’s handling of a child sex abuse scandal involving former assistant coach Jerry Sandusky. Paterno was fired by the board of trustees Nov. 9 for failing to do more an abuse allegation against Sandusky than report it to his superiors. “Last weekend, my father was diagnosed with a treatable form of lung cancer during a follow-up visit for a bronchial illness,” Scott Paterno said in the brief statement. The doctor’s visit came the same weekend the school played its first game since the 1960s without Paterno leading the Nittany Lions — Penn State lost, 17-14 to Nebraska. “As everyone can appreciate, this is a deeply personal matter for my parents, and we simply ask that his privacy be respected as he proceeds with treatment,” Scott Paterno said.

SECOND MILE OFFICIALS CONSIDERING OPTIONS The Second Mile, the youth charity at the center of the child sex-abuse charges against former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky, has begun to look at options to continue in some form, the organization’s chief executive said Friday. The Second Mile is refuting a New York Times report that it is going to fold, CEO Dave Woodle told The Patriot-News of Harrisburg, Pa. “No decision has been made,” Woodle told The Patriot-News. “I told (the New York Times) exactly what I told (The Patriot-News); we have three viable options.” Woodle said those options include continuing the charity under The Second Mile name, continuing the programs under a different charity or folding.

HARRIS STEPS DOWN AS SCHOLARSHIP BOARD CHAIR Hall of Fame running back Franco Harris has stepped down as chairman of a Pittsburgh-based scholarship board following comments he made in support of ousted Paterno. Franco agreed to remove himself as chairman but remain on the board of the Pittsburgh Promise following a lengthy emergency meeting Thursday night. Pittsburgh mayor Luke Ravenstahl,

who co-founded the organization in 2007, sent Harris a sternly worded letter Wednesday asking Harris be removed for what the mayor deemed as insensitive comments.

MIZZOU’S PINKEL PLEADS GUILTY Suspended Missouri football coach Gary Pinkel pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge of drunken driving Friday and received a 30-day suspended sentence along with two years’ probation. Two hours after he was formally charged, Gary Pinkel Pinkel and his attorney were in Boone County Missouri coach court. His plea renders a scheduled December court date moot. “Mr. Pinkel seemed to want to get the case resolved and accept responsibility for his actions,” said assistant prosecutor Cassandra Rogers.

NEW FIESTA CHIEF: EXCESSES OVER Excesses are a thing of the past at the Fiesta Bowl, its new executive director said Friday. The bowl will no longer shower politicians and employees with lavish gifts or perks like all-expense trips to the Super Bowl, and gifts for athletes and coaches at its game will be more muted and strictly follow NCAA guidelines, Fiesta Bowl executive director Robert Shelton said in an interview Friday. Shelton was hired to repair the bowl’s image after former President John Junker was fired in March for allowing excess spending, an apparent illegal system of political contributions and an effort to cover up the problems.

Ron Zook walked out of a news conference this week after a question about his tenuous job status. He had warned reporters he wouldn’t address the situation. Not exactly a sterling way to keep a stiff upper lip. After a 6-0 start achieved mostly with home games against weak teams, Illinois has lost four straight. Zook is 34-49 in seven Illinois seasons, though he did get the 2007 Illini to the Rose Bowl. Illinois hosts Wisconsin on Saturday, before finishing at suddenly-hot Minnesota. Zook needs a victory soon, else he might not have many more news conferences to flee.

UPSET SPECIAL

Syracuse safety Phillip Thomas has been suspended for one year for a violation of athletics department policy. The university offered no further explanation in a one-sentence email. The move comes in an off week for the Orange (5-5, 1-4 Big East), who have two games remaining in the regular season.

The Pac-12’s best two quarterbacks not named Andrew Luck meet Saturday night: Oregon’s Darron Thomas and Southern Cal’s Matt Barkley. But which is No. 2 and which is No. 3? Thomas, whose job Berry seemed in peril in Tramel October because of a btramel@ sprained knee, has opubco.com rebounded to play spectacularly as the Ducks make a push NATIONAL PREGAME for a return to the Twitter: @BerryTramel national championship game. Thomas has thrown 22 touchdown passes and just five interceptions. His record as a starter is 20-2, and he’s the No. 10-rated passer in America. Ahead of the ballyhooed Barkley. “Last year, he was a first-year starter for us,” Oregon coach Chip Kelly said of Thomas. “He did a really nice job. But I think he’s understanding what we are doing offensively — being able to get through his progressions quicker, make sure we’re in the right protections, change the tempos we’re playing at certain times.” Stanford’s defense was no match for Oregon’s quick offense last week. But USC figures to at least have the athletes to slow the Ducks. USC appears to be the only team in the way of a 12-1 finish for Oregon. The Ducks finish with two more home games, against Oregon State and whichever mediocre team represents the Pac-12 South in the conference championship game.

Penn State-Ohio State once meant a showdown of regal powerhouses. Now it means a mediocre game of shamed traditions. The Buckeyes’ shame is not as deep as the Penn State sexual-molestation scandal. All Ohio State did was break a bunch of NCAA rules. Seems sort of minor in comparison. But Ohio State has not played well in the wake of coach Jim Tressel’s ouster. The Buckeyes are 6-4 and coming off an overtime loss to Purdue. Penn State, 8-2, was scratching out victories before the Jerry Sandusky scandal went public, and the Nittany Lions put up a good fight against Nebraska last week amid awful circumstances. Ohio State is a six-point favorite at home Saturday, but Penn State under interim coach Tom Bradley is playing for a cause. Let’s go with the Nittany Lions in the upset.

FSU finishing home slate

Rex Ryan still stunned by Jets’ ‘huge, huge loss’

BY BRENT KALLESTAD Associated Press

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — Florida State wraps up the home portion of its schedule Saturday against Virginia in what many of its fans are likely to remember as the season that got away. The 23rd-ranked Seminoles started the year as a heavy favorite to win the Atlantic Coast Conference, but fell out of contention for all practical purposes in the first five weeks of the season. Virginia, on the other hand, wasn’t picked to go anywhere and still had hopes of winning the ACC Coastal Division as late as Thursday. Coaches for both schools claim any disappointment won’t be noticeable Saturday. “We put it to rest a long time ago,” Florida State’s Jimbo Fisher said. Florida State’s chances for an ACC title were pretty well snuffed out by early October following backto-back losses to Atlantic Division rivals Clemson and Wake Forest. “Sometimes when we think about goals and results, you don’t get the process right,” Fisher said. “We learned that lesson.” Virginia (7-3, 4-2 ACC) needed intrastate rival Virginia Tech to lose Thursday night to keep alive its hopes for a possible divisional title. The Cavaliers would also have had to defeat Florida State and then beat the Hokies next weekend to capture the division. But all those what-ifs are irrelevant now. Ninth-ranked Virginia Tech beat North Carolina 24-21 to claim its fourth Coastal Division title in five years and a spot in next month’s ACC championship game against Clemson’s Atlantic Division champions. “We just have to think what’s clear and present right now,” Virginia coach Mike London said earlier in the week. “That’s FSU.” And while titles may be out of reach for both, bowl games are not.

Virginia hasn’t been bowl eligible since 2007 and a strong finish could lead to a more prominent bowl game. Florida State has the nation’s longest streak of bowl seasons at 30, but also needs to win out if it hopes to attract a top bowl invite. Both the Seminoles and Cavaliers come into the game with modest win streaks. The Seminoles (7-3, 5-2) own a five-game winning streak, while Virginia has won three straight. Florida State needs to defeat Virginia and then Florida next weekend in Gainesville and win their bowl game to duplicate last year’s 10 wins in Fisher’s first season as head coach. Virginia will have to contend with one of the nation’s stingiest defenses if it hopes to upset the Seminoles, who come into

their homecoming game nearly a three touchdown favorite among bettors. The Cavs’ Perry Jones is 144 yards shy of reaching 1,000 in his junior campaign, while freshman teammate Kevin Parks has tacked on another 616 yards rushing. But they’ll have to do it against the fourth best defense nationally against the run. In addition to blocking for the running backs, Virginia’s offensive line has done an equally fine job protecting quarterback Michael Rocco. The Cavaliers have surrendered only eight sacks all season and none in their last 86 pass attempts. But they’ll be going against one of the country’s best pass rushes Saturday. Florida State ranks 10th nationally with 31 sacks, led by defensive ends Cornelius Carradine, Brandon

Jenkins and Bjoern Werner, who have combined to get to the quarterback 14.5 times. Florida State quarterback EJ Manuel, who comes from Virginia Beach, is the centerpiece of Florida’s offense. He has completed 67.4 percent of his passes for 2,152 yards and 15 touchdowns. The 6-5, 235-pound junior needs 281 yards running and passing in Saturday’s game to move into ninth place all-time in total offense at Florida State. “He threatens you with his arms and with his legs,” London said. “There’s no doubt about his physical skills.” Florida State has a 14-2 advantage in the series following last year’s 34-14 win in Charlottesville, Va. and has never lost at home to the Cavaliers in eight earlier games.

COLLEGE FOOTBALL

Auburn to honor Sullivan BY JOEL A. ERICKSON McClatchy Newspapers

AUBURN, Ala. — Forty years ago, Pat Sullivan’s TV went on the blink on Thanksgiving night. Sullivan badly needed his TV to work that night. Everywhere he went — at class, in interviews — all he kept hearing about was the Heisman. He was ready for the whole thing to be over. Now, the time for the announcement had finally arrived, his parents had come to watch it with him, and Sullivan’s TV would not work. He had to go rent a room at the Heart of Auburn, a hotel near campus. That was where Sullivan found out he had edged Cornell running back Ed Marinaro to win the Heisman Trophy. “The thing that I remember, and I’ll cherish, I went back to (BeardEaves-Memorial) Coliseum, our whole team was there,” Sullivan said. “It was like being in a victorious locker room, probably until close to midnight.” A lot of those same guys will be there again Saturday when Sullivan brings his Samford team to Jordan-Hare to take on his alma mater. Auburn plans to recognize the 40th anniversary of Sullivan’s Heisman win — the first in school history — 25 minutes before the game, and as many as 50 former teammates may be in attendance, Sullivan

said. And he’ll be setting foot on the field at Jordan-Hare Stadium for the first time in 15 years. The last time he could make it to a game at Auburn, Sullivan said, was the Night the Barn Burned against LSU in 1996. Being away for a decade and a half seems like an awfully long time for a man who has been closely linked to Auburn ever since he stepped on campus. “He is a great Auburn man,” current head coach Gene Chizik said. “What he did for this university, and what he means to the fans, I’m thrilled for him to be celebrated in this way.” For many Heisman Trophy winners, the stiffarmed statuette is the last time they are closely tied to the day-to-day operations of the football program, but Sullivan has been around the program ever since. A Birmingham native, Sullivan spent five years in the NFL before settling back in his hometown to work in insurance, but he still handled radio broadcasts for Auburn football games. But it took 14 years for Sullivan to really get back into the game. He was doing well in insurance. His wife, Jean, was doing well in real estate, but she saw something change in her husband when he coached his son’s soccer and basketball teams. In 1985, she came to him with a commandment.

“You need to go into coaching,” Jean told him. “The only time I see that gleam in your eyes is when you’re coaching Patrick or when you’re getting ready to go do the ballgame.” Sullivan called a couple of SEC coaches — Auburn’s Pat Dye, Georgia’s Vince Dooley — and Dye had a spot open for the former Auburn legend. His wife had been right. As the quarterbacks coach at Auburn, Sullivan was part of three straight SEC championships and parlayed that job into a head coaching gig at TCU, taking the Horned Frogs to their first bowl bid in a decade. After his time at TCU, Sullivan became the offensive coordinator at UAB, a job he left only to become the head coach at Samford. As a head coach, Sullivan has channeled the same principles that made his head coach, legendary Auburn figure Shug Jordan, so successful. Players called Jordan “The Man” as a sign of respect, but he had a way of putting almost anybody at ease. First-year offensive coordinator Rhett Lashlee said he’s seen the same thing at Samford. “It shouldn’t be just about winning or losing,” Lashlee said. “You want to impact their lives.” Now, Sullivan is coming back home to coach against the school that has been his gateway to the heights of football as a

player, a broadcaster and coach. When he steps onto the field at Jordan-Hare, he’ll be stepping onto a field that has been his second home for most of his adult life. And that Thanksgiving night in the Heart of Auburn doesn’t seem like it happened 40 years ago. “It doesn’t.” Sullivan said. “It feels like it was yesterday.” Distributed by MCT Information Services

NEW YORK — Rex Ryan still couldn’t believe it, stunned even 12 hours after his Jets left Denver with a devastating loss. Too many mistakes. Too many blown opportunities. And, now, there’s serious doubt whether this is even a playoff-caliber team. “It was obviously a huge, huge loss for us,” Ryan said Friday. After the Jets (5-5) allowed Tim Tebow to cap a 95-yard drive with a 20yard touchdown run in the final minute of a 17-13 loss Thursday night, Ryan knew exactly what went wrong: pretty much everything. “Obviously, we had some breakdowns in protections,” Ryan said during a conference call. “We had a turnover for a touchdown, we fumbled another special teams play on a kick return after we had a huge return, and then obviously, the 95-yard drive, which is, it’s still hard to really fathom. I mean, it really is.” At this time last week, the Jets were riding a three-game winning streak and looking to establish themselves as one of the premier teams in a wide-open AFC. Consecutive losses to New England and Denver in five days have New York instead suddenly in the middle of a muddled postseason picture. “Our playoffs start right now, there’s no question,” Ryan said. “We have to beat Buffalo. I don’t see any breathing room. We’ve already used that up.” Ryan wishes his team could play its next game this Sunday, but the Jets must wait until Nov. 27, when they host the Bills. That might be a good thing, considering all New York needs to clean up. “Every area of our team has certain issues,” Ryan acknowledged. That was clear on the field in Denver as the Jets couldn’t put away a Broncos team that was outplayed for the first 55 minutes. Then came Tebow’s latest comeback, one that could have been quashed on the first play. The Broncos quarterback threw an ill-advised pass to Eddie Royal in the end zone, and Jets safety Jim Leonhard got him — and then lost him as Royal broke free for an 8-yard gain. It was a bad omen for a defense that had played well up until that point, but appeared gassed as Tebow started running around the field. “It’s very disappointing,” cornerback Darrelle Revis said after the game. “A lot of people are disap-

pointed in here of how the outcome came for the game.” New York still had a chance to make a huge play and go back home feeling fortunate to squeeze out a win. But on third-and-4 from the Jets 20, Tebow spotted New York dialing up its first all-out blitz of the night. So he took the snap, got past safety Eric Smith, cut back and then rumbled into the end zone. “Hindsight behind 2020, obviously, we would’ve done something, anything but that,” Ryan said of the decision to blitz. “I even told the defense before (the play), T ` his kid is not going to take the ball out of his hand. He is going to keep it in his hand,’ and that’s exactly what he did. He ended up just making a great play. None of us saw it coming.” So Ryan and his staff will spend the next several days trying to turn things around in what has been a mediocre 10 games of a season that the Jets’ bold and brash coach promised would be special. “When you look at it, are we going to change a few things? Yes, I think we need to,” he said. “I think we really need to look, study some things. I won’t get into the particulars, but I think we really do, and also learn from our past, how we did things, and really try to look at that and try to get better.” On defense, that means being able to close out games and keep consistent pressure on the quarterback. On special teams, that means holding on to the ball and clamping down on opponents’ returns. And, on offense, it’s improving the running game — granted, Shonn Greene was injured early — and making sure quarterback Mark Sanchez starts to show signs of progress. After the game, Sanchez took the blame, something he has done a lot lately. His poor pass to Plaxico Burress in the third quarter that Andre’ Goodman picked off and returned 26 yards for a touchdown tied the game at 10 and immediately swung the momentum in the Broncos’ favor at a time when the Jets could have taken total control. “It’s an embarrassing play on my part,” Sanchez said. “I hurt the team and lost the game.” Ryan acknowledged that it was a bad decision by Sanchez on the play, but refused to blame him for the loss. “It absolutely doesn’t belong on Mark’s shoulders,” Ryan said. “He’s just a player. He’s a big piece of the puzzle, but it wasn’t all on Mark Sanchez.”

Walker Moore KEEPING THE FAITH

GOD BLESS US EVERY ONE

Gratitude yields miracles As a child, I had many reasons to love Thanksgiving. First, it marked the countdown to Christmas. That’s important for kids, who get confused by the concept of time. Telling a child, “It’s only six months until Christmas,” is the same as telling the average American, “It’s only 57 kilometers to the next restroom.” You know it’s a measurement, but you can’t interpret it. I also loved Thanksgiving because it meant family fun. Aunts, uncles, cousins and everyone else came together to eat and play. My wife’s family inspired a much better habit. At Thanksgiving meals, everyone takes a turn expressing thanks. This begins as an awkward moment where we sit, eyes downcast, hoping somebody else will speak first. Once we get started, though, the mood changes to simple gratitude. As we reflect on everything God has given us, we can’t help but give thanks. In our modern world, we rarely stop to ponder God’s goodness. The Old Testament tells us the Israelites built altars to mark major events in their lives. The altars reminded them to reflect, and the reflection reminded them to give thanks. The New Testament in Luke 17:11-19 also shows us the importance of giving thanks. It tells of Jesus traveling to Jerusalem and being met by 10 men who had leprosy. “They stood at a distance and called out in a loud voice, ‘Jesus, Master, have pity on us!’ When He saw them, He said, ‘Go, show yourselves to the priests.’ And as they went, they were cleansed. One of them, when he saw he was healed, came back, praising God in a loud voice. He threw himself at Jesus’ feet and thanked Him — and he was a Samaritan. Jesus asked, ‘Were not all 10 cleansed? ... Was no one found to return and give praise to God except this foreigner?’ Then He said to him, ‘Rise and go; your faith has made you well.’ ” (Luke 17: 11-19) The leper understood the depth of Jesus’ gift. This man understood the depth of God’s work. And in that understanding, he found a second miracle. Gratitude is the believer’s highest duty. Ingratitude is the leprosy of the soul. Reflect, remember and become truly grateful for everything God has done. If you watch, you’ll find another miracle. Walker Moore is president of AweStar Ministries in Tulsa.

Furniture deposits are accepted at bank BY CARLA HINTON Religion Editor chinton@opubco.com

Picking out a new sofa for the living room can be an enjoyable experience. But furniture shopping is a luxury that many refugees, the working poor and foster families cannot afford, a local pastor said this week. The Rev. Tom Ogburn, pastor of First Baptist Church of Oklahoma City, said three faith organizations have partnered to address this issue. First Baptist of Oklahoma City, Catholic Charities and Skyline Urban Ministries (an affiliate of the Oklahoma United Methodist Conference) have launched the Furniture Bank of Oklahoma City, a shop where furniture and other household goods may be purchased for a nominal fee or in exchange for sweat equity. The store at 3922 NW 10 accepts furniture donations Saturday mornings. Ogburn said the hope is that the targeted families will shop in the store for items that will help transform their houses into homes. “We want to help them create homes of dignity and families of grace,” Ogburn

said. Ogburn said the furniture bank initially will open by appointment only. He said the partnering organizations will refer clients to the shop, where they will be matched with a volunteer who will guide them around the store to select their furnishings. He said shoppers will be charged a nominal fee, but those who have no money to pay will shop in exchange for performing volunteer hours for the referring agency. Ogburn said, most importantly, clients can select items that reflect their individual taste and style, just as they would at a retail store. “So your home is filled with things you get to choose, things you are proud of.”

Furnishing an answer Ogburn said the furniture bank is patterned after a similar project in Ottawa, Canada. Also, Claudia Lovelace, executive director of Skyline, said another comparable initiative is under way in the Dallas metro area. Ogburn and Lovelace said they have always wanted to start such a project but

Often, predators hide in open PATTERN | SOME PARENTS ALLOW NOTED PEOPLE UNRESTRICTED ACCESS TO KIDS BY GREG TOPPO USA Today

The abuse allegations at Penn State seem unthinkable: revered assistant coach and prominent community activist Jerry Sandusky preying on eight children. But such abuses of trust play out across the country over and over. Experts say respected people who set up charitable or social groups for children, only to be implicated in some form of child sexual abuse, are a frightening reality. “I call them ‘institutions of trust,’ ” said Portland, Ore., attorney Kelly Clark, who has represented more than 300 sex abuse victims. Some predators are so tacitly trusted “that when something like this happens, the instinctive reaction is, ‘We can’t allow the mission to be compromised,’ ” he said. Abuse experts say the common denominators in many such crimes are parents willing to allow noted people to have unrestricted access to their kids.

Among recent cases: I A Utah judge recently sentenced a 70-year-old orphanage cofounder to three consecutive terms of five years to life in prison after he pleaded guilty to three counts of abuse. Lon Kennard originally faced 43 counts dating to 1995, but most charges were dropped as part of a plea deal. Kennard’s victims were among six children adopted from Ethiopia, where he and his wife helped establish an orphanage. I A Miami, Fla., jury on Nov. 10 returned a $100 million verdict against a retired Roman Catholic priest accused of sexually abusing dozens of boys since the 1980s in the city’s Little Haiti neighborhood. More than 20 people say Neil Doherty, 68, trolled for victims wearing his priest’s collar. I In Portland, Ore., last year, a jury awarded a 38-year-old former Boy Scout $1.4 million, finding the national Boy Scouts of America and a local council negligent in a sex abuse case involving an assistant scoutmaster and convicted pedophile.

Pedophile patterns “A pedophile is going to go where they have access to children,” said Richard Serbin, an Altoona, Pa., attorney who has represented 150 clergy sex abuse victims statewide since 1987. He said the Penn State allegations parallel the Catholic Church scandals — a trusted institution playing host to a pedophile. In each case, he said, the institution unwittingly lent predators access and respectability. Washington, D.C., journalist Patrick Boyle, author of the 1994 book “Scout’s Honor: Sexual Abuse in America’s Most Trusted Institution,” said reaction to the Catholic Church’s sex abuse complaints and those against the Boy Scouts of America was similar. “In both cases, there was a lot of willful ignorance among the higherups,” he said.

BIBLE LESSON

RELIGION

“For if you forgive others their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you; but if you do not forgive others, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.” — Matthew 6:14-15

Representatives from FEMA as well as state and county emergency management teams huddle in front of a Lincoln County home after touring the property on Tuesday. Several teams from these agencies fanned across Lincoln County to assess damage from earthquakes earlier this month. PHOTO BY JIM BECKEL, THE OKLAHOMAN

Jesus taught about forgiveness immediately after He taught the Lord’s Prayer, “And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us.” Jesus knew some people would pray the Lord’s Prayer while nurturing hurt feelings and refusing to turn from anger, resentment and unforgiveness. When unforgiving people pray for God to forgive them “as” (meaning “in the same manner and measure as”) they forgive others, God will answer their prayer by not forgiving them. Jesus emphasized the truth about His followers needing to forgive others when He used the little word “if” twice in Matthew 6:14-15. “If” you forgive, then your heavenly Father will forgive you. “If” you will not forgive, then your heavenly Father will not forgive you. Some, even in the church, try to evade the meaning and serious consequences of Jesus’ teaching on forgiveness. An unforgiving spirit may lead to suffering a variety of diseases and mental illnesses that God may refuse to heal until the person faces the real cause of their problems and repents of their sin. God may discipline the resentful by withholding blessings and opportunities. Jesus emphasized that God will judge those who refuse to obey Him. Obviously, if God allowed some into heaven who maintained an angry, unforgiving and resentful spirit, they would bring unhappiness to God, others and even themselves. — L.G.

SIGN OF THE END TIMES? LOCAL PREACHERS DISCUSS QUAKES BY CARLA HINTON Religion Editor chinton@opubco.com

Recent earthquakes in Oklahoma have drawn both good-natured jokes and concern as state residents cope with yet another natural disaster. Several local clergymen said in recent weeks, people have questioned whether the earthquakes, along with a host of other natural disasters in the state, are signs from the Lord. Three local preachers shared their views on the issue with The Oklahoman: The Rev. Mark Hitchcock, senior pastor of Faith Bible Church of Edmond and author of several books on biblical prophecy: Earthquakes are Mark Hitchcock some of the signs that Jesus gave in Matthew 24 of his second coming, but we’re not in the Tribulation yet. I think those are going to be signs during the Tribulation period (as described by Hitchcock, the Tribulation is to be a time of great catastrophe, pain and suffering as foretold in Scripture (Matthew 24:21). The National Geological Survey says that the earthquakes are not increasing. It’s a cyclical thing, plus we have better means of measuring them. Yes, we’ve had drought, floods and tornadoes, but different parts of the world have different things. It’s not like it’s never happened here before. My comment would be people need to be ready all of the time. Christ will come. It could happen at any time. If someone is not a believer in Christ,

they need to place their faith and trust in Christ. If they are already trusting in Him, then they need to be close to Him and living for Him. We don’t want to be found unprepared and living for ourselves. We want to be found faithful. The Rev. Sam Porter, ordained Baptist minister and director of the Baptist General Convention of Oklahoma’s Baptist Disaster Relief agency: In the last 50 years, earthquake happenings have been overwhelming. I do think it’s fulfilling prophecy, but I’m not a doomsday guy. In Matthew 24, it talks about in

the end times, there will be earthquakes in diverse places, but in that same verse it says Jesus says don’t let your heart be troubled. I don’t think Oklahoma is going to have an earthquake of major proportions, and I’ve seen the worst of the worst. I’ve literally seen major disasters, and yet my heart is not troubled because I know God always shows up in the midst of disaster. These types of things always cause people to think, “What’s important in my life?” They usually think of family, God and friends. Those three always surface. When people ask if God is trying to say something, I usually answer that with a question: “What do you think God is saying to you?” There’s usually something in their heart. The Rev. Steve Kern, pastor of Olivet Baptist Church: It seems to me that maybe the Lord is trying to get our attention. In the end times, there are going to be all sorts of signs. We pray “God bless America,” but I don’t really see God blessing America. We’re having lots of Steve Kern natural disasters — they’re not typical. ... The drought during the summer, the earthquakes. We have an intercessory prayer group that prays every week, and we pray about these things. What we need to be praying is “Lord, what are you trying to tell us?” I think because of the moral downfall in our country, the Lord is trying to give us a wakeup call. I’ve been around for 65 years, and I just don’t remember a time where we’ve had one thing after another like this.

Interfaith group presents 3 awards BY CARLA HINTON Religion Editor chinton@opubco.com

Three community leaders were honored for their interfaith efforts at an annual interfaith dinner held recently in Oklahoma City. The Institute of Interfaith Dialog’s Friendship Dinner and Award Ceremony was Tuesday at the Petroleum Club in downtown Oklahoma City. The awards were presented to pay tribute to local leaders for their contributions in bringing people of different faiths together for peaceful and meaningful dialogue. Orhan Osman, local director of the Houstonbased institute, said the award winners share the institute’s mission in joining communities of faith togeth-

er to promote compassion, cooperation, partnership and community service through interfaith dialogue. Bill Citty, Oklahoma City police chief, received the public service award, while David Goin, Edmond Public Schools superintendent, received the education award. Vince Orza, president and CEO of KSBI-52, received the media award. Citty was introduced by David Prater, Oklahoma County district attorney, and Goin was introduced by Brenda Lyons, former Edmond Schools superintendent. Orza was introduced by Jeri Jones, assistant dean of Oklahoma City University’s Meinders School of Business. Dick Pryor, deputy director of the OETA, served as keynote speaker for the evening.

Pryor’s address explored the theme “The Role of Free and Responsible Media Toward a Society of Mutual Respect.” Pryor said the role of the media is to seek truth in such a way that the resulting print story or broadcast informs readers while respecting them as well. He said the media must take a broader view of who the public is and this includes giving voice to the voiceless. “We must reach out to diverse communities and give them a chance to contribute to the dialogue,” Pryor told those gathered. “Through the media we can all come together and connect, if we want to.”

The churches of First Oklahoma Association of Free Will Baptists will sponsor a Thanksgiving Praise Service at 7 p.m. Tuesday at Southern Oaks Free Will Baptist Church, 7201 S Santa Fe. Different churches will offer special music during the service. Refreshments will be served at a fellowship gathering after the service. For more information, call Waldo Young at 9424038.

TECHNOLOGY DIGITAL MESSAGE AVAILABLE The Messenger Digital, a digital version of the Baptist Messenger, is now available. Leaders with the Baptist General Convention of Oklahoma’s official newspaper said the newspaper’s digital component is available for iPad, iPhone and Android users via a free Messenger Mobile app. In addition, existing subscribers of the Baptist Messenger can have the Messenger Digital emailed to them each week. The announcement was made at the convention’s annual meeting earlier this week. The Messenger will celebrate its centennial in 2012. Meanwhile, Brian Hobbs, was recently elected editor of the Messenger by the convention’s executive committee. The Rev. Anthony Jordan, the convention’s executive director-treasurer, said Hobbs, 32, has been the person behind the move to offer a full version of the Messenger online. Hobbs became the convention’s director of communications in June.

had no place to offer the program. “This has always been a dream of mine because there is such a need,” Lovelace said. Damon Britton, Catholic Charities associate director of children and family services, said people often have furniture to donate, but many agencies don’t have a place to store it. At the same time, families are finding themselves in difficult circumstances and in need of adequate furniture and household goods. In addition to refugees, foster families and the working poor, Britton said families who lost their homes in disasters such as tornadoes also could benefit from the furniture bank. Lovelace said she thinks women fleeing abusive situations and people recently released from prison may find a need for what the furniture bank offers. Ogburn said he prayed about the issue and talked to his congregation about the need for store space. He said the congregation includes numerous refugee families, so church members have long known that people and families new to the community need affordable household furnishings.

Space transformed Ogburn said a member of his congregation took him to a storefront on NW 10 one day and asked whether he thought the 7,500-square-foot facility would be adequate for the furniture bank. Ogburn said he was thrilled with the empty building. Once the pastor expressed his excitement about the building, the church member with York Investments agreed to allow the bank to be housed there if the organizers would be responsible for utilities. Ogburn said the building needed much work — a patchwork of carpet needed to be taken up and hauled away, and the rooms

needed to cleaned and painted, among other things. He said as quickly as the need arose, the Lord appeared to provide the volunteers to get the facility in shape. Just two weeks after the building was acquired during the summer, about 40 youth volunteers from Texas came and performed much of the necessary renovation work, Ogburn said. He said the college-age young people from First Baptist Church of Waco spent a lot of time and energy in rehabbing the building so local volunteers could begin moving furniture in. The storefront is now filled with assorted sofas, chairs, beds, paintings, lamps, tables, dishes, small appliances and other items. Furnishings are grouped much like what one would find in a furniture store. Ogburn said there also is plenty of room for a workshop where volunteers work on furniture items that need to be rehabilitated. A dedicated group of people has been performing tasks such as steam cleaning, repairing and refinishing some incoming donations.

Working together Ogburn said the partnering organizations are still working on the logistics of the furniture bank and its role in the community. “These are three Christian organizations who share the same heart, but we are still in a process of discovery about what is the best way to impact families with this ministry,” he said. He said he is especially excited that the partners represent different Christian denominations. “Baptists tend to isolate themselves but to me, we are Christians with a big ‘C’ and Baptist with a little ‘b,’ ” he said. “In our city, I long for us to see ourselves for who we are in Christ rather than what separates us. I’m hoping this and other models show that Christians can work together.”

Kids: Borrowed credibility FROM PAGE 1D

sex abuse complaints against the Boy Scouts — he estimates that about 50 to 60 involving Scouts are pending in courts nationwide. “I call it ‘borrowed credibility,’ ” Clark said. “If it was Smilin’ Joe’s Day Care Center, I might not leave my kid there. But it’s the Boy Scouts, so I’m going to let my kid go with

this troop and three or four or five adult men, some of whom I don’t know. I might not trust them, but I trust the Boy Scouts.” Boy Scouts of America spokesman Deron Smith said that in 101 years, 150 million young men have been Scouts. He said the organization takes abuse seriously. Since 1990, he said, the Boy Scouts have included a pamphlet titled “How to Protect Your

Children” in every handbook. In the Penn State case, Boyle said, “everybody seems to have done the minimum, instead of doing the maximum or more, which is what we’d expect of these institutions.” “If you can give 110 percent on the field, why can’t you give 110 percent for the victims?” RELIGION NEWS SERVICE

Music, energy keep AMAs show moving

Music awards shows can blend together, given that there are so many. What separates the 2011 American Music Awards, airing Sunday on ABC, from others is that the AMAs were created for TV, and fans choose the winners. Dick Clark has always been the force behind the AMAs, which rely on what people want to listen to rather than having the industry set the agenda. For the fifth year, fans have voted online, and they gave the most nominations, in four categories, to Adele. The 39th annual show, airing from Nokia Theatre L.A. Live, features Nicki Minaj opening and Katy Perry closing. Mary J. Blige, Jennifer Lopez and Kelly Clarkson are among the other performers scheduled. The only caveat is that it’s a live show. When the AMAs started, Larry Klein, the musician and producer, was a gofer. “There were Xerox machines, and I was collating scripts one page at a time,” he says. “I was getting people cigarettes and sodas. I delivered Justin Bieber is scripts all over the city and had no scheduled to peridea of what L.A. was like and no form at the 2011 idea of how to get around.” American Music Today, Klein runs the show. Awards, airing Unlike so many awards shows, Sunday on ABC. this one has no host. It’s kept moving “by the energy of the music and the energy in the room,” Klein says. He brings artists together and figures out pairings. Among this year’s duets to look for is Pitbull and Marc Anthony singing “Rain Over Me.” Pitbull is up for favorite male artist in the pop/rock and Latin music categories. With his songs charting in Europe, Asia and Australia, and already a megastar in Spanish-speaking countries, Pitbull vows to just continue to work harder. During a 20minute interview, he frequently talks about learning — learning from other artists, learning how they handle the business end and just broadening his business, which now includes low-calorie vodka. When he considers the AMAs, what he’s most excited about is “to be around such walking empires and song brands.” “What I love at the awards show is to just sit there and observe and study everybody,” Pitbull says. “You can tell who has longevity in the business as to how they handle their team.” Adam Levine of Maroon 5 is excited about whom he may meet at the awards. “It happens all so randomly, and everyone under the sun will be there,” Levine says. If he had the chance to meet anyone, “Paul McCartney would blow my mind,” he says. Maroon 5 will sing “Moves Like Jagger” with Christina Aguilera. Justin Bieber, up for favorite male artist in the pop/rock category, also doesn’t get stage fright. “I just feel like I have been doing this for 37 years, so I don’t get nervous,” says Bieber, who’s singing “Mistletoe.”

ANSWER TO PREVIOUS SUDOKU PUZZLE

GETTING STARTED

Graeme Le Saux, a former English national soccer player, said: “Digital (photography) has obviously changed things a lot, but not all for the better as far as I’m concerned. Of course it’s much more convenient and you’re getting instant results, but to me it just lacks the finesse of a roll of film, and it has a slightly superimposed feel.” There is something appealing about finesse -- doing things without brute force. However, at the bridge table, occasionally we must bully our way to a contract with a finesse or two -- as in this deal. South is in four hearts. West leads the spade king. What should declarer do? North’s raise to four hearts was a tad optimistic, pre-emptive openings not being as sound as they used to be, even vulnerable. However, note that he did not bid three no-trump, aware that he might never see his partner’s hand. South has four losers: two spades, one heart and one club. If he wins the first (or second) spade and immediately plays a trump, he should concede those tricks. Declarer must reduce that loser count. The right play is to take a ruffing finesse immediately by running dummy’s diamond queen and discarding a spade from his hand, assuming East does not cover with his king. West takes the trick, cashes a spade and shifts to a club. South wins that on the board and continues with another diamond, discarding his club loser if East does not play his king. Now it is time to touch trumps. (If East does cover the second diamond, South ruffs and leads a trump. His last club disappears when he is back on the board in clubs.)

There are many strategies to solving Sudoku. One way to begin is to examine each 3x3 grid and figure out which numbers are missing. Then, based on the other numbers in the row and column of each blank cell, find which of the missing numbers will work. Eliminating numbers will eventually lead you to the answer.

TV BRIEF ‘SURVIVOR’ WINNER ETHAN ZOHN’S CANCER RETURNS NEW YORK — Former “Survivor” winner Ethan Zohn’s cancer has returned. Zohn’s publicist confirms doctors discovered cancer in his chest in September. Zohn was diagnosed with Stage 2 Hodgkin lymphoma in 2009. Two rounds of chemotherapy didn’t work, and he unEthan Zohn derwent a stem cell transplant. He was in remission until his latest diagnosis. The 37-year-old is undergoing a new form of chemotherapy called SGN-35, which involves an antibody drug that targets cancer cells and is thought to be less toxic to the rest of the body. Zohn says he hopes to undergo another stem cell transplant after three months of treatment. FROM STAFF AND WIRE REPORTS

ADVICE

CHICKEN SOUP FOR THE SOUL

BY HAROLD FANNING

Has there ever been a time in your life when you were so humiliated that you wanted to either die or simply evaporate into oblivion? I have had my share of humiliating situations. And yes, I must admit, the thought has crossed my mind to skip town and simply disappear. But that was all it was, just a fleeting thought. I think fear and common sense keep us from ever seriously considering doing such a thing. Plus, as I’ve learned over time, placing geographical distance between yourself and your problems never really solves anything. The worst day in Harold Fanning history began on a Monday morning when I was in the fifth grade.

Plus, as I’ve learned over time, placing geographical distance between yourself and your problems never really solves anything.

For some reason I had overslept, and in my haste to get dressed I grabbed the first white shirt I could find. I hurriedly slipped it on and rushed out the back door heading for school. Unfortunately, my mistake didn’t show itself until we were all on the baseball field during third period physical education class. Earlier I had spied a few of my classmates looking at me and talking among themselves. A few others were pointing and laughing, but I didn’t think it was directed at me, and so I didn’t give it much thought at the time. But as we were all standing

around waiting to be chosen for a team, one of my friends finally informed me what all the commotion was about. I could hardly believe it! In my haste to get ready for school, I had accidentally grabbed one of my sister’s blouses. There I was, waiting to be chosen for a team, wearing the prettiest girly blouse known to man. It was complete with a rounded collar, cute little blue flowers, trimmed lace and heartshaped buttons down the front. In my disgrace and desperation I realized I had to do something — this situation called for imme-

diate action. Knowing that I couldn’t leave school, I frantically searched the school closets, where I finally discovered an old leather jacket that someone had abandoned the previous winter. I immediately put it on to cover my shame and embarrassment. After school I walked almost three miles home enduring 100degree heat wearing my sister’s blouse and a leather jacket! To add insult to injury, cars full of friends and neighbors passed by me, whistling and mockingly asking me if they could take me on a date and send me flowers. So, what’s the moral of this story? Here you are, reading this, thinking that nobody has problems like yours. The moral is this: We all have those moments where we want to disappear from the face of the Earth forever. But maybe now that you’ve read about my own humiliation, you’ll realize that you’re not alone, and it’s not so bad after all. KING FEATURES SYNDICATE

Birthday gift of a rabbit could be a flop DEAR ABBY: My dad and I raise rabbits. My friend “Zoe” has always wanted one. Recently one of our rabbits had a litter, and Zoe fell in love with one in particular. Her birthday is coming soon, and I’m thinking about giving her this rabbit as a present. I would also include several days’ worth of food. My problem is, I don’t know whether I would be imposing on her parents. Should I ask them first? And do you think I should also include a cage? Kentucky Bunny-lover DEAR BUNNY-LOVER: You should never give a live animal as a gift unless you’re positive that the creature will be welcomed and have a good home. That’s why it’s important to get the approval of Zoe’s parents before giving her the rabbit. Be sure the family knows everything they need to about successfully raising a rabbit, including its behavior and the space requirements for exercise. You’ll be doing them — and the bunny — a favor if you do. If Zoe’s parents approve of the gift, it would be generous to include the cage. DEAR ABBY: I’m a 14-year-old guy. I have been growing my hair out for a long time, and my bangs are now down to my nose. It looks and feels really cool. My problem is, now that I’m in high school, adults get on my case about my hair. I can hardly go one day without some teacher yelling at me to “get your hair out of your eyes!” I flip it to the side, but they still seem annoyed. I’m tired of hearing about it. One day, five different teachers all got mad about it. What can I say to stop people from freaking out over my hair? Josh in Michigan DEAR JOSH: Is this the only problem you’re having with the teachers? Their concern may be that your hair is now so long you can no longer see the blackboard. And because they can’t see your eyes, they may be unable to gauge whether you’re “getting” the les-

Embarrassing moment recalled “Perhaps I know best why it is man alone who laughs; he alone suffers so deeply that he had to invent laughter.” — Friedrich Nietzsche

.

Jeanne Phillips DEAR ABBY son they’re trying to convey. While you and I may think that what’s inside your head is more important than what’s on it, if several teachers have been commenting on your hair, it’s time to do something about it. DEAR ABBY: From time to time you have printed letters in your column from people who don’t know what to do with their lives. I’m an intelligent woman in my mid-20s. I did well in high school, quickly selected a major in college, excelled there, graduated and found a job in my field. I worked for three years, and then was let go. As you can imagine, I was devastated. My plans for my life had fallen through. That was several months ago. Since then, I have taken time to explore other options and interests. I may even head back to school, something I have wanted to do because I love to learn. I have also focused more on my social life and am in the first serious romantic relationship of my life. To those of your readers who are unsure: Understand that life doesn’t always go according to plan, but there is nothing wrong with that. Moving on in Utah DEAR MOVING ON: I agree — you are an intelligent young woman, and an emotionally healthy one as well. You have been able to recognize the positive in what many people consider a negative situation. Your letter illustrates that when one door closes, another one opens. Your attitude will serve you well in life. Write Dear Abby at www.DearAbby. com or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069.

DEAR DR. GRAHAM: I’m 9 years old. Am I too young to give my life to Jesus? We go to church, but I think my parents believe I’m not old enough to ask Jesus to come into my life, although I want to. M.F. DEAR M.F.: No, you’re not too young to give your life to Jesus! God loves you, and He not only loves you but He wants you to love Him in return. You can do this by asking Jesus to come into your life and making Him part of your life every day. What do you need to know to become a follower of Jesus? First, you need to know that God made you and gave you your life. He did this because He loves you and wants you to become a member of His family. Then you also need to know that although God loves us, we don’t love Him the way we should. In fact, we often ignore Him and do things He doesn’t want

us to do. The Bible calls this sin, and it tells us that every one of us — including you and me — “have sinned and fall short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23). This is why we need Jesus, because He came to take away our sins by dying on the cross for us. Now, all we need to do is receive the gift He offers us — the gift of forgiveness and eternal life. And you can accept that gift by asking Jesus to come into your life. Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them” (Mark 10:14). This is Jesus’ invitation to you, and I pray you will accept His invitation by giving your life to Him today. God bless you.

TRIBUNE MEDIA SERVICES

Too many redundancies in number The Gotham City Daily Planet recently carried a story about a federal program “that allows seasonal foreign workers into the country to make up the gap where willing and able American workers are few in number.” “I’m glad they’re not few in color, or few in temperament, or few in wealth,” said Miss Lulabelle, who never views the world through glasses that are rose in color. What bothered Miss Lulabelle was a redundancy — an unnecessary repetition. When you say that American workers are few, you’ve already indicated that there aren’t many of them. You don’t have to add “in number” because there’s nothing else in which you can be

few. Redundancies such as this are common in nonedited compositions, such as police reports. Investigators often report that the culprit was driving a car that was “red in color.” It’s shorter and easier to say that he was driving a red car. Nobody will be in doubt as to whether red refers to color or horsepower. But, apparently, some folks think “red in color” sounds more authoritative

and official. Cars are often described as moving “at a high rate of speed.” “Speed” is a rate of motion, and therefore you’ve said it all when you say “was moving at high speed” or even “was going fast.” “Deputy Sherman Grant’s Yugo is gray in color and slow of speed,” Gopher said. “Sherman’s a little slow himself,” Floyd said. “He can run pretty fast when he’s chasing a chicken thief,” Gopher said. “I mean he’s dumb in the head,” Floyd said.

CONCERT REVIEW

Rock & Worship Road Show rocked arena I What: Rock & Worship Road Show. I When: Thursday at Chesapeake Energy Arena. I Crowd: Between 10,000 and 11,000. I Reviewer’s take: The evening started out with a local group selected by fans who voted on Facebook. Fight the Fade was full of energy and a lot of headbanging that the kids seemed to love. They were followed by a group called Advice, which had the crowd on its feet clapping, singing and dancing. A group named Group One Crew had an awesome mixture of beautiful female vocals and enjoyable rapping out to God! The things that stuck out most with this group were the music, the words and, overall, the amazing energy that filled the arena. Everyone was on their feet as Disciple, always a crowd favorite, rocked the house. A short intermission and stage change brought Hawk Nelson out to screaming fans. Hawk Nelson frontman Jason Dunn jumped off the stage and got up close and personal with his fans, and the crowd went wild. As he jumped up on the railing in front of where I was sitting, the arena

filled with screams from many girls. The next performer was Matt Maher, who is known for a much more laid-back, easy-listening music. It was easy to hear many people around me joining in and singing with Maher’s group. A big introduction took place as Jars of Clay came onto the stage. They were the first group of the night to break out with a Christmas song, “Little Drummer Boy,” with their own energetic twist. Finally, MercyMe took the stage, and I don’t remember seeing a single person sitting down the rest of the night. Midway through the MercyMe set, the group paused and lead singer Bart Millard talked some about all the things going on in the world, as he put it — “the horrible mess” — we are all in. At one point during his talk, I looked over my right shoulder and saw a group of four teens all on their knees in prayer. The concert was four amazing hours of the most awesome worship right here in the heart of the Bible Belt — old, young — all praising God. — Michelle Geries

I ARIES (March 21-April 19): Because you are solutionoriented, you’ll find opportunities. Getting to the bottom of problems and taking care of the details that will prevent future mishaps will be challenging and rewarding. I TAURUS (April 20-May 20): You do not nonchalantly accept responsibility. When you give your word, you follow through in some way with your time, energy and attention. Those are precious commodities, so guard them well. I GEMINI (May 21-June 21): Bottledup emotions have an energy of their own. They want to be expressed. They might even arrange for some havoc to create a scenario in which they will finally be released. I CANCER (June 22-July 22): You wanted motivation, and now you’ll get it, so see it in a positive light. The one who lights a fire under you is on your side, though it may not feel like that as the match strikes. I LEO (July 23Aug. 22): You may not feel quite as filled with purpose as you did yesterday. Spread the word about what you wish would happen. You’ll meet people to teach you what you need to know. I VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): You’ll be doing what you love to do. Perhaps you won’t be doing it for as long as you would like, but that will come in time. Build on the moments of bliss, and they will get longer. I LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23): You recognize there is more than one right way to make connections, and you’re in the mood to explore new approaches. Your personal life gets interesting. I SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21): You’re excited to grow into a role and to know what it feels like to create a certain dynamic in your world. Your open mind will allow for fresh influences. I SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Because you’re ready to receive and appreciate some goodness from a bountiful universe, you’ll receive prosperity from a source other than expected. I CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Your interests are varied, which allows you to connect with nearly everyone you meet. You’ll glide through conversations and win the admiration of others. I AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Show enthusiasm, and you can’t go wrong. Better to be too effusive than too reserved. Most people would like to be more demonstrative but don’t know how. You’ll teach them. I PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): You will know immediately what needs to be communicated in a given situation, but it’s best to pause and get the most positive and/or discreet phraseology.
