t has been too long. When that beautiful shower came through yesterday, it took me a moment or two to realize what was happening. At first I thought maybe alien invasions are real and this is the big one, but somewhere in my memory the word “rain” clawed its way to the top and I calmed down. You know it’s been a while when you confuse a summer storm with extraterrestrials. I wasn’t sure I would even remember how to turn on the windshield wipers on my truck. All was good, though — I only honked the horn twice and switched radio stations about six or eight times before I found the right knob. Ah, there’s nothing like the sound of rain pitterpattering on the roof after a long, l-o-n-g dry spell, and I love the smell of hot pavement as the rain cools it. I love the smell of dry dirt that is no longer dry, and I love watching the leaves on the trees bounce up and down as those big fat raindrops smack them. Even Charlie, my Chihuahua, got excited yesterday. Normally he grumps and groans about having to go outside and — you know — when it’s raining. But I guess he, too, thought it had been dry for far too long. I opened the back door so he could — you know — and he made a mad dash for the wide open, letting those tingly little drops pelt his fur. When he came back inside, he seemed to have a little more zip in his getalong. The look on his beadyeyed little face said “that was refreshing!” I know this is a little off-topic from the rain, but I just feel like saying it. Charlie confuses me. Many times, he despises going out in the rain, but if I take him to the lake, he turns himself insideout to go for a swim. Go figure. ——— Jason Smith is a sports writer and photographer for The Shawnee NewsStar.

Although some areas saw rain showers Tuesday afternoon, drought conditions still remain, prompting Pottawatomie County commissioners to enact a burn ban for another 30 days. Commissioners voted Tuesday for the 30-day ban after the county was placed under a seven-day burn ban one week ago.

Commissioners can remove the ban at any time and will review the matter weekly. With the ban, it is unlawful for any person to set fire to any forest, grass, range, crop or other wildlands, or to build a campfire or bonfire, or to burn trash or any other material that may cause a fire. Shawnee/Pottawatomie County Emergency Management Director Don Lynch said despite some rain

City sales tax rises slightly

Tuesday, it is still “very dry” and people are urged to use extreme caution as fire conditions remain. “We’re thankful for the little bit of moisture, but it doesn’t mean we’re out of the danger situation,” Lynch said. One exception to the burn ban, at least this week, is granted for bonfires held on the Heart of Oklahoma BAN, Page 5A

An 18-year old contestant at the International Finals Youth Rodeo remains in critical condition after being injured Monday evening. Kelly Blanton, from Taylorsville, N.C., was taken by Medi Flight from the rodeo grounds to the intensive care unit at OU Medical Center and is currently listed in stable, but critical condition with severe back injuries. Blanton was injured after she was thrown from her horse while practicing in the practice arena on the rodeo grounds. A source close to the family said Blanton was placed into a medically-induced coma while doctors were continuing to run tests to determine a course of action. Blanton recently graduated from high school in North Carolina and was planning to attend college. A fund is being set up to help Blanton’s family provide for medical care and other expenses. Donations may be made by calling Jackie Davis, treasurer for the North Carolina High School Rodeo Association, 980-522-1865, or sent to 2827 Lake Front Drive, Belmont, NC 28012. ——— Robby Short may be reached by calling 2143934.

Up, up and away

By Mike McCormick michael.mccormick@news-star.com

Shawnee’s city sales tax figures for July are up over the same month a year ago, but still lag behind the amount received in July 2009. Cindy Sementelli, city of Shawnee finance director and treasurer, reported the July sales tax amount received plus interest totaled $1,361,273.21. She said that is about $22,472 or 1.68 percent above the budgeted total for the first month of the new fiscal year which began July 1. July’s check was $24,675 above the amount received in July of 2010. But it remained $31,792 or 2.28 percent below the check received in July of 2009. City Manager Brian McDougal said Tuesday “we’re not seeing any great increase, but we only budgeted about a two percent increase over what we received last year. It’s a little below what our average would be for the year.” He remains optimistic with the fact Kohl’s Department Store has taken out a building permit for part of the old Walmart building TAX, Page 5A

IFYR

Kealy Marshall following her rodeo mother’s footsteps By Chelsey Kraft chelsey.kraft@news-star.com

At a young age, 16-yearold Kealy Marshall followed in the footsteps of her rodeo participant mom and began riding horses. “The stories I’ve been told are that my mom never could find a babysitter when she would go to rodeos, so she bought a pony and put me on it,” Marshall said, who began competing at age three. Marshall looks at her mom Yolanda as a role model and called herself a mama’s girl. “She is my hero and my inspiration because she won so much. She helps and supports me,” Marshall said. She said the support received from parents makes rodeo a family activity. Marshall, who is from Earlsboro and goes to Varnum High School, is competing in her second consecutive IFYR. Her events are barrel racing and pole bending in which she will ride her horses Weizer and Glowie.

The proximity of the rodeo to her home is a plus for Marshall, and she said she is thankful for that because she knows it is hard to travel and be out of the state for a week. After graduation, Marshall plans to attended Southwestern Oklahoma State University to become a physical therapist. Originally, Marshall said she wanted to be a veterinarian, but she changed her mind because she realized she does not like to see animals die. As a physical therapist, Marshall hopes she could help others who suffer an injury be able to rodeo again. This comes from her experience of having to undergo physical therapy following ACL surgery in March 2009. “They helped me push myself to get better and helped me get ready to ride at the IFYR. They told me to not give up,” Marshall said Kealy Marshall of the physical therapists at Valir Physical Therapy in Shawnee who helped her recover.

Tanna Baker learns Thunderstorms provide to control her horse some heat relief for Okla. OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Severe thunderstorms rumbled across moisturestarved Oklahoma, dropping much-needed rain on areas that have endured triple-digit heat for days. Strong storms packing heavy rain, hail and wind pounded the Oklahoma City metropolitan area. Rain also fell in cities along the Interstate 35 and I-44 corridors Monday afternoon. The National Weather Service reported wind gusts between 59 mph and 69 mph near Will Rogers

By Josh Burton josh.burton@news-star.com

Even the best riders in the world need to know how to control their horse, something Tanna Baker has had to learn. “It is very important,” she said. “Not all horses know the patterns and just do it automatically.” All horses and riders need to be trained, Baker said. That training came for her as she got older. “You can’t just let the horse control you,” she said. Baker scored a 17.238 in her first run of barrel racing, and will run again Friday morning. She wasn’t too happy with that performance. “I think I’m going to come back Friday and so a little better,” she said. “I expected my time to be faster than what it was.” Along with barrel racing, Baker won a state title this past spring in basketball for Class 3A Bethel. “It’s kind of complicated sometimes [balancing the two],” she said. Basketball has has helped her with her barrel racing and vice-versa.

World Airport in southwest Oklahoma City. Damage to power lines also were reported in Midwest City. According to Oklahoma Gas and Electric, electric service had been disrupted to at least 13,450 customers in central Oklahoma.

Meanwhile, an excessive heat warning remains in effect through Wednesday night for 16 counties in eastern Oklahoma. While the rain may provide some local heat relief, forecasters say the hot and humid weather will continue.

73, of Tecumseh Bobby J. Moore, 73, of Tecumseh, passed away Monday, July 11, 2011, at his home. He was born on January 18, 1938, to parents, Johnie and Laura (Curd) Moore, in Bonanza, AR. Bobby has been a Tecumseh/Shawnee area resident for most of his life. He was raised in Pocola, later moving at an early age with his parents to Shawnee, where he attended school, graduating from Shawnee High School. He received his Associates Degree from Seminole Junior College. Bobby proudly served his country in the U.S. Army. He married Pat Blue, August 10, 1957, in Shawnee. Bobby was an Insurance Agent for State Farm Insurance for the past 33 years. He owned and operated Bob Moore Insurance in Tecumseh until he retired in 2001. He was a member of the First Baptist Church of Tecumseh for many years. Bobby was a member and active in the Tecumseh Chamber of Commerce, Rotary and the Elks. Bobby’s greatest highlights in his life were the birth of his three children and later in life the births of his eight grandchildren. Each one was special to him and he enjoyed spending time with them and spoiling them. His first hole in one on the golf course was a major highlight in his life and his anniversary trip to Canada and going to see the Phantom of the Opera while there.

Ty Pellam started riding at an early age. At the age of three, Pellam was doing to calfs what his heros were doing to bulls. “Ty Murry, that’s who I was named after,” Pellam said. “My dad built us a pen and we just started bucking.” Pellam usually rides bulls and bareback broncos, but decided to sit out this week’s bull competition at the IFYR to rest before high school nationals. Pellam, 18, will be a senior at Asher High School this year. After graduation, he plans to go to college and pursue a degree in equine appraisal or animal science. Pellam has his school options narrowed down to three. “I’ll go to the school that offers me the best scholarship,” Pellam said. Pellam said he wanted to pursue as career as a horse chiropractor when not competing in rodeos. “I’ve done it at the race-

track before,” Pellam said. “It makes the horse feel better and it puts them at their best.” Pellam plans to join the Professional Rodeo Cowboy Association while in college with the longterm goal of breaking Ty Murry’s record of nine World All-Around Rodeo Champion titles. “I want to set the record high enough that no one will ever break it,” Pellam said. Pellam also plays basketball at Asher High, and has been the FFA reporter the last three years. Pellam won first place in the Southeastern College Scholastics meet for anatomy and physiology. “I’m usually a business man before I ride,” Pellam said. “But I lost a bet so my ride on Friday will be a bit different. But you’re Ty Pellam going to have to come out Pellam was the 2010-11 to see it.” Oklahoma High School Pellam said he would be Rodeo Association state wearing a special article of finals Bareback Riding clothing made by Jessie Jo Lewis’s Renegade Ranch Champion, and the 201011 OHSRA Reserve Bareclothing line.

Cherokee court orders manual recount of ballots TULSA (AP) — The Cherokee Supreme Court ordered a third count of the votes Tuesday in the hotly contested election for chief of one of the country’s largest American Indian tribes. The recount that will start Saturday morning at the nation’s election commission office will be the second done by hand since the June 25 election. Unofficial results had councilman Bill John Baker unseating longtime Principal Chief Chad Smith by 11 votes. But when the Cherokee Election Commission announced the official results on June 27, Smith was declared the winner of a fourth term by seven votes. A recount done at

Baker’s request then reversed the results again, putting him ahead by 266 votes. Smith challenged those results, saying about 300 votes of the more than 15,000 cast had been left out. That led to the court’s order for another count. “This is exactly what we asked for in our pleadings last week,” Smith told The Associated Press on Tuesday after the court issued its order. “In the recount, we believe at the end of the day, I’ll be elected principal chief.

“Now, every Cherokee has the assurance that their vote will count.” An aide to Baker, who declined to give his name because he was not authorized to comment on the order, said “we are pleased that Cherokees will get to count the votes in the light of day.” The Tahlequah-based

Cherokee Nation is Oklahoma’s largest tribe and one of the nation’s biggest, with membership approaching 300,000 people. Many of its members live in other states. The eventual winner of the election will administer a $600 million annual tribal budget after an inauguration set for Aug. 14.

Exposition Center grounds during events for the International Finals Youth Rodeo. One exception to the bun ban allows for LPG, natural gas and charcoal grill use, Lynch said. Cooking must be done on a non-flammable surface and at least five feet from vegetation. For other exemptions, residents can complete applications for agricultural permits to be issued during certain weather conditions, but those must be approved by the rural fire coordinator or fire chief in their area. The long-standing effects of the drought can be seen in dry or dead grasses and vegetation, or in ponds that are low or dry. Some areas of Shawnee Twin Lakes are reported low with no water, but official levels still show the lakes are higher than normal, at least for this time of year. At its full capacity, the lake would be at 1,074 feet and current

levels are at 1,069 feet. Burns bans are already in place in both Lincoln and Seminole counties, along with burn bans in all but 18 of the state’s 77 counties. Enforcement of burn bans can be carried about by any law enforcement officer. Anyone violating the ban would be guilty of a misdemeanor and subject to a $500 fine and imprisonment for one year, or both. Burn ban information shows if the use of fire in contracting, welding, cooking or any other permits results in a wildfire, “the individual conducting the

activity is responsible for the immediate suppression of the fire and for damages which might occur from the fire.� As drought conditions continue to worsen, many communities in the Oklahoma City area have put restrictions on water usage. Locally, the city of Maud has enacted water rationing as the city’s four wells can’t produce enough for demand. Maud residents are on an odd/even watering system by address, and outdoor watering can only be done on their designated days from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m.

A job is a job Dear Editor, Lowering government spending cuts government jobs. Hello folks – a job is a job regardless of whether it is done by the government or not. In addition doing away with any job means more people on unemployment and welfare and that sure doesn’t help our deficit. It also means main street will be losing customers right and left. Refusing to come to an agreement on the debt ceiling will mean that lenders will demand an increase in interest rates for the money they lend America. That will mean taxpayers will again be paying more money for Republican idiocy. Yes the Democrats are being unmovable as well but the Republicans do not have enough votes for a veto override so the ball is in their court when it comes to compromise. Meanwhile, American billionaires and millionaires pay the smallest tax rate in 60 years. The Republican voters are getting the government they deserve but I’m not. Jo Davis, Shawnee

WASHINGTON

Give Obama new debt limit power, says GOP leader WASHINGTON (AP) — With compromise talks at a vituperative standstill, Senate Republicans unexpectedly offered Tuesday to hand President Barack Obama new powers to avert a first-ever government default threatened for Aug. 2. Under a proposal outlined by Sen. Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, Obama could request increases of up to $2.5 trillion in the government’s borrowing authority in three separate installments over the next year, as long as he simultaneously proposed spending cuts of greater size. The debt limit increases would take effect unless blocked by Congress under special rules that would require speedy action — and even then Obama could exercise his authority to veto such legislation. Significantly, the president’s spending cuts would be debated under normal procedures, with no guarantee they ever come to a final vote. In essence, McConnell’s proposal would greatly enhance Obama’s authority to avoid a default, while also virtually absolving Republicans of responsibility if one occurred. At the same time, it would allow Republican lawmakers to avoid having to support an increase in the debt limit, something many of them find odious. “Republicans will choose a path that actually reflects the will of the people, which is to do the responsible thing and ensure the government doesn’t default on its obligations,” McConnell said in a speech on the Senate floor. He also excoriated the administration for seeking tax increases along with spending cuts as part of an agreement to raise the debt limit. His plan drew criticism from GOP presidential contender Newt Gingrich, who quickly tweeted it was “an irresponsible surrender to big government, big deficits and continued overspending.” There was no immediate response to the GOP proposal from the White House, where Obama hosted his third meeting in as many days with congressional leaders struggling to avert a financial crisis. The talks have revolved around attempts to meet Republican demands for deficit cuts at least as large as any increase in the debt limit. Negotiators have grown testy in recent days as Obama and Democrats pushed for higher tax revenue as part of the deal, a line Republicans say they will not cross. It was unclear whether McConnell’s proposal could show the White House and congressional leaders of both parties a way out of a deadlock that Obama and others said threatened calamitous results for an economy still struggling to recover from the worst recession in decades.

THE SCOOP

Shawnee found a friend in Doc Domer

Governor

I

first met Dr. Bob Domer in 1985. Several of us from Shawnee journeyed to Rapid City, S.D., in late July that year as the city of Shawnee and Heart of Oklahoma Exposition Center was beginning its quest to bring the National High School Finals Rodeo to Shawnee. “Doc Domer,” as he is referred to, was the Kansas High School Rodeo Association’s national director. The NHSFR was in Rapid City for the second year of its three-year commitment, and were getting ready to decide whether or not to head to Pueblo, Colo., for three years beginning in 1987. Our committee hosted a small reception for the national directors that year in Rapid City, attended some of the performances and made a whirlwind trip back to Shawnee. Doc played an instrumental role in helping bring the NHSFR to Shawnee beginning in 1990 for three years. Indirectly, I guess, you could say he was partially responsible for our creating the International Finals Youth Rodeo here in Shawnee beginning in 1993, because he had a direct role in ensuring the National High School Rodeo Association Board of Directors voted in July of 1988 to bring the NHSFR to Shawnee. It was at the conclusion of the NHSFR in 1992 the decision was made to create the IFYR, which this week is celebrating its 19th consecutive year. That group of us who went to Rapid City 26 years ago this month, continued to attend the NHSFR the final year it was in Rapid City in 1986, then the following three years it was in Pueblo, Colo. There were a lot of meetings the group went to, including the mid-winter meetings in Denver and Pueblo, as well. In September of 1985, Doc, along with national directors Pete Dial from Oklahoma, Tommy Harrison, Texas, and Earl Northrup, North Dakota, came to Shawnee for a weekend. This began a serious look as to whether Shawnee would be able to hold what is considered the world’s largest youth rodeo, although the IFYR remains the world’s richest. Once again this year, the IFYR will pay out more than $200,000 in prize money in addition to the championship saddles and buckles. Domer is in Shawnee again this week, serving as the timed event arena director for the IFYR. It’s a job he says he looks forward to coming to Shawnee for each summer and he says he’s been doing it the past eight or nine years. By the time the nationals landed in Shawnee in 1990, Doc, a veterinarian who has been in practice for 44 years, had resigned from the board of the

MIKE MCCORMICK EDITOR’S NOTEBOOK

rodeo, outstanding stock, both the rough stock and the timed event cattle,” he added. “I look forward to coming back here each year,” he said. Doc also mentioned the relationship between the IFYR and the nationals has improved immensely through the years. Citing as a specific example, is changing the format this year to where the initial performance began on Sunday night, with the concluding round and finale Friday night. That will provide considerably more time for the contestants still here on Friday night competing and who are headed to Gillette to make it in ample time by the Sunday deadline for nationals. As timed event director, Doc says his main job is to ensure everything is fair and safe as possible, “and the kids have a chance to make a good, clean run.” One of the aims of this rodeo, he thinks, is to teach sportsmanship, not only how to win. Little did we know that 26 years ago when we made the trek to Rapid City to begin efforts to bring the nationals here, that we would find such a staunch supporter of Shawnee and its volunteers who looks forward to returning annually to our city for the IFYR. But that is exactly what happened with Doc Domer and personally I am glad to see him want to return each year as he does his part to try and ensure the IFYR runs smoothly again this week.

NHSRA. He left the position in 1990 just before the rodeo came to Shawnee, after serving on the board since 1969. But before he left, he was one of those who headed up the inspection team, and pushed to bring the nationals to Shawnee. He was in Shawnee each of the three years it was here before it moved on to Gillette, Wyo. He didn’t have any of his kids who competed at the nationals here, but he’s had two granddaughters, Lindsay and Regan Domer, and two grandsons, Ryan and Collin Domer, who have competed in the IFYR. Lindsay was a director for two years and Regan one. He said he stayed in high school rodeo as a national director for 10 years even after his kids had graduated. Lindsay graduated from Kansas State University two years ago and has an advertising job in Kansas City, Mo., while Regan is a senior at KSU and works for Koch Industries. He says both women enjoyed their times as youth directors here, Ryan and Collin are still in college. Asked about why he seemed sold on Shawnee from the beginning as a site for the nationals, and eventually the IFYR, Doc responded “good leadership. You had a great facility to begin with here in Shawnee, and you added to it.” Doc continued “Ken (Ken Etchieson) was a good leader, and the whole Shawnee community was great. The nationals needs a place to go,” he said, pointing to Rock Springs, Wyo., where they are headed to after this year at Gillette. Doc also liked the fact Oklahoma is in the center, middle of the United States. Other factors Doc liked in helping bring the nationals to Shawnee were “you had a host committee, and Shawnee was willing to put up the money and the facilities. You can go lots of places, but you need a small community who has a lot of spirit. These volunteers look forward Doc Domer has been coming to rodeos in to it,” he said. “This is a darn good Shawnee since 1990. PHOTO BY MARIAH BEAUFORD

be the best, but you can surely gain the advantage with a little quick thinking — and a little luck, too.

DEAR ABBY

Pastor without compassion needs a DEAR ABBY: We have a problem – our pastor. He uses the pulpit to criticize, put people down and offers no compassion. A person can only take so much. The problem is, if you say anything to him, you can bet the next sermon will be about what you discussed. How can I talk to him without making him angry? – ALL FIRE AND BRIMSTONE DEAR A.F. AND B.: Your pastor’s behavior gives new meaning to the term “bully pulpit.” Rather than approach him yourself, you and others who feel as you do should take your complaint to the governing board of your church. And if that doesn’t fix the problem, you should seriously consider finding another “flock” to join because it appears your shepherd has lost his way. DEAR ABBY: I have been dating “Claude” for eight months. We are planning a trip in the fall to visit his family’s chateau in France. Claude has long legs and refuses to travel in coach because it’s uncomfortable, so he will buy a business-class ticket for himself and a coach ticket for me. While I’m grateful Claude is paying for my ticket, I feel that since

we’re a couple, we should travel together. I don’t want to be upgraded to business class necessarily, but I’d like him to sit in coach with me. When I brought this up, he refused and is now calling me “ungrateful.” My feelings are hurt, and Claude can’t understand why I am upset. My friends and family think he is acting rude and selfish. I can’t help but agree. Do I have a right to be upset? I am so uncomfortable with this arrangement that I’m considering not even going. – NOT UNGRATEFUL IN SAN DIEGO DEAR NOT UNGRATEFUL: San Diego to France is a LONG flight. It’s a long time to expect a tall person to fold up like a praying mantis just so you won’t be sitting alone in a coach seat on your way to an all-expense-paid vacation. Claude has good reason for wanting to sit in business class. So be a sport and offer to pay for an upgrade to business

class and sit with him. I agree that you shouldn’t be seated “10 paces behind him,” and this way you would both be comfortable. DEAR ABBY: When my husband, “Ken,” proposed three years ago, he had a steady job with an income twice as high as mine. He was laid off before our wedding, but we went ahead with the marriage. After our wedding, Ken was unemployed for another year before finally finding a minimum wage job. After one year at that job, he was fired. He has since found another minimum wage position. I am a young teacher. We live in an expensive part of the country. We struggle every day to pay for groceries, gas and other essentials. I wasn’t raised to expect many frills in life and I am frugal, but there are certain things I always assumed I would have – a house of my own, children, a savings account. If I stay with Ken, I don’t believe these things will ever be within my reach. In all other ways, Ken is a wonderful man and I love him with all my heart. But is there ever a time when love isn’t all you need? – SECOND THOUGHTS IN ASHEVILLE, N.C. DEAR SECOND

THOUGHTS: You and Ken have hit a rough patch early in your marriage, but millions of Americans are even worse off – out of work and have given up trying to find any. When you married Ken you promised each other “for richer or poorer.” This recession won’t last forever and, in the meantime, you have a wonderful man you love with all your heart. Whether that’s enough or not, only you can answer. But if you trade in this model, there are no 100 percent guarantees that the next one will be able to give you all you need, either. You may find that in order to get all you need, you’ll have to do it on your own.

Cy makes four hearts by using a staple of technique: the loser on loser. After he draws trumps, he takes the top diamonds, discards a club on the king of spades and leads the nine. When East covers, Cy discards another club. East is end-played: He must give dummy the king of clubs or concede a ruff-sluff. DAILY QUESTION You hold: ♠ K 9 4 ♥ K 8 7 4 ♦ K 9 ♣ K 8 7 3.

The four kings, in theory, amount to two defensive tricks, which are adequate to open. My feeling, doubtless old-fashioned, is that an opening bid should comprise some playing tricks, not just a barren assortment of high cards. This hand is full of holes, and I’d pass.

Creator of ‘Brady Bunch,’ ‘Gilligan’s Island’ dead at 94 Denise Petski The Associated Press

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Sherwood Schwartz, writercreator of two of the best-remembered TV series of the 1960s and 1970s, “Gilligan’s Island” and “The Brady Bunch,” has died at age 94. Great niece Robin Randall said Schwartz died at 4 a.m. Tuesday at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, where he was being treated for an intestinal infection and underwent several surgeries. His wife, Mildred, and children had been at his side. Sherwood Schwartz and his brother, Al, started as a writing team in TV’s famed 1950s “golden age,” said Douglas Schwartz, the late Al Schwartz’s son. “They helped shape television in its early days,” Douglas Schwartz said. “Sherwood is an American classic, creating ‘Brady Bunch’ and ‘Gilligan’s Island,’ iconic shows that are still popular today. He continued to produce all the way up into his 90s.” Sherwood Schwartz was working on a big-screen version of “Gilligan’s Island,” his nephew said. Douglas Schwartz, who created the hit series “Baywatch,” called his uncle a longtime mentor and caring “second father” who helped guide him successfully through show business. Success was the hallmark of Sherwood Schwartz’s own career. Neither “Gilligan” nor “Brady” pleased the critics, but both managed to reverberate in viewers’ heads through the years as few such series did, lingering in the language and inspiring parodies, spinoffs and countless standup comedy jokes.

SUMMER PLANTS

Garden Phlox thrives during hot weather By Tom Terry Contributing Writer

Garden Phlox is a perennial plant that has withstood the heat this summer. In fact the dry temperatures have probably helped it avoid powdery mildew, a problem sometimes when humidity is high. The perennial variety came to the United States from Great Britain. Phlox is a Greek word for flame. The earliest record of Phlox dates back to 1732. Garden Phlox has many species, however the most common is Phlox paniculata. We have two varieties in our yard. The one that bloomed earlier has a dark lavender blossom. The blooms shown in the photograph are light lavender with a dark pink center. It is probably a cultivar named White/Red Eye Flame or it could be one named Franz Shubert. Whatever its name, the butterflies love it. There is one hovering around it most of the time. Garden Phlox plants are easy to grow. They can be started from container

grown plants, from seeds, or divisions from existing plants. Plants can be divided in late October or early spring. One garden writer suggests that the entire clump be dug and then split into sections. Usually the best sections to replant are those growing on the outside of the clump. Another maintenance suggestion is to cut back most of the stems but to leave enough about six inches high so that you will be able to locate the planting and not try to put something on top of it. Garden Phlox grows to about 30 inches high. It combines well with cone flowers and Shasta Daisies in front of them. We have cannas growing behind our phlox. During the summer after the blooms have withered, you may cut the stems back to provide a neater look to your flower bed. Because of the possibility of mildew spores, place the cut stems in the trash rather than in the compost bin. Usually the plant won’t have more blooms before frost, but it

isn’t out of the question. You might be lucky and have some. In the spring when the new shoots begin to grow, you may consider thinning them a little and also pinch the buds back to form larger flower heads. I haven’t done this in the past and have had satisfactory bloom. I’ll consider doing it next spring. Garden Phlox grows in most soils. If the soil is sandy, you will need to water more frequently because they do best if kept moist, but not overly wet. It is better to avoid getting the foliage wet while watering. A soaker hose is ideal. The plant needs full sun to avoid a mildew problem. In our area full sun means about five hours a day, preferably with most of it morning sun. Given current weather conditions, you probably won’t rush out to buy Garden Phlox during the next few weeks. I do recommend, however, that you put Garden Phlox on your list of plants to consider for

Garden Phlox has bloomed well this summer in spite of less than ideal conditions. PHOTO PROVIDED

I have a tree whose leaves have yellowed and dropped off, what is going on? I am receiving four or five calls a day from homeowners with this same problem. If it is a general yellowing out with relative quick leaf drop, I would suspect leaf scorch. If you see spots on the leaves, this is a disease and warrants a fungicide. However, calls have come in 15 to 1 with leaf scorch being the problem. Leaf scorch is starting to show up on trees and shrubs. This is not a disease but rather a physiological problem associated with severed roots, limited soil area, or hot, dry winds. Moisture is lost so quickly from the leaves that the roots can’t absorb and transfer water quickly enough to replace what is lost. Though scorch is usually associated with droughty periods, it can appear even when the soil is moist. Scorched leaves turn brown or, in some cases, turn black from the edges and between the major veins. If severe, the leaf may drop. Leaves may be affected over the entire tree or may be affected only on one side. Though scorch can be due solely to the weather, the condition of the roots of plants can make them much more susceptible to this condition. Shallow soils such as those over hardpan or rock lead to a limited root system that may not be able to absorb all the water needed. Trees may be more sensitive to scorch this year because of water logged soils caused by heavy rains. So much rain was received that oxygen was driven from the soil resulting in root damage. That root damage is now making it more difficult for trees to provide all the water needed for the leaves. Also, root damage due to disease, insects, poor drainage or construction can cause poor water uptake. To help alleviate damage due to dry soils or limited root systems, water once per week if there is no rainfall. Mulching small trees or shrubs will help conserve moisture.

NCAA ACTION

ALL-STAR GAME

Northwestern Oklahoma State bid on hold

Fielder’s HR keys National League win

ALVA (AP) — Northwestern Oklahoma State’s bid to join NCAA Division II is on hold for at least one year. The university in Alva learned Tuesday the NCAA has denied its application to begin the candidacy process to become a Division II member. Northwestern had hoped to start that process with the 2011-12 school year. University President Janet Cunningham says the decision is disappointing — but that Northwestern will enhance its NCAA application and “reapply at the next available opportunity.” Northwestern is a longtime member of the NAIA and will continue to play in the Sooner Athletic Conference. The university wants to join the new Division II Great American Conference. Great American Conference Commissioner Will Prewett says the league will continue to assist Northwestern in its quest to become a Division II member. Oklahoma Baptist University and St. Gregory’s University are members of the Sooner Athletic Conference.

PHOENIX (AP) — Pitching, speed and a little bit of power. The National League is back on top in the All-Star game, using the same formula that worked during its dominating run in the 1970s and ‘80s. Prince Fielder hit a three-run homer and Roy Halladay and his relief combined on a six-hitter to lead the NL over the AL 5-1 Tuesday night, giving the senior circuit its first

two-game winning streak since the mid-1990s. The victory handed the NL home-field advantage in the World Series. With several big names as noshows at Chase Field, the AL lost more than the game. Boston right-hander Josh Beckett warmed up, then bowed out with a sore knee. Detroit slugger Miguel Cabrera left after hurting his side. Even before they were

hurt, many stars were missing. Justin Verlander, Felix Hernandez and many other aces started Sunday and were ineligible, Chipper Jones and Alex Rodriguez were among those on the disabled list and Derek Jeter wanted a break. In all, 16 of 84 All-Stars were dropped. Tyler Clippard got the win despite allowing a single to Adrian Beltre, his only batter. Relievers Clayton Kershaw, Jair

Jurrjens, Craig Kimbrel, Jonny Venters, Heath Bell, Joel Hanrahan and Brian Wilson combined to keep the NL ahead. Fielder won the MVP award after becoming the first Brewers player to homer in an All-Star game. The World Series edge could help him later, with Milwaukee and St. Louis tied for the Central lead at the break. The NL dashed around

Durant could go abroad if lockout occurs

NBA

Sampson joins Houston staff HOUSTON (AP) — Kevin McHale has added a couple of familiar names to the Houston Rockets coaching staff. Kelvin Sampson and J.B. Bickerstaff will join McHale once teams get back to work, a person with knowledge of the decisions said Tuesday. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because no official announcement has been made by the team in the midst of the NBA lockout. McHale was hired June 1 to replace Rick Adelman, who parted ways with the team after four seasons. Sampson was also interviewed for the head coaching vacancy. He has been an assistant coach in Milwaukee since 2008, and previously left college coaching jobs at Oklahoma and Indiana under NCAA scrutiny. Bickerstaff, the son of former NBA head coach Bernie Bickerstaff, has been an assistant in Minnesota the past four seasons. McHale coached the Timberwolves at the end of the 2008-09 and also worked in the team’s front office. The Timberwolves fired Kurt Rambis on Tuesday, and Sampson and Bickerstaff were believed to be potential candidates to become Minnesota’s next coach. Sampson was also a candidate to replace the fired John Kuester in Detroit. The Rockets are moving on after All-Star center Yao Ming decided to retire. Houston has missed the playoffs the past two seasons, with Yao crippled by injuries and playing in only five games. Sampson worked as a college coach from 19792008, but his problems with the NCAA will likely prevent him from landing another college job.

SPORTS TRIVIA QUESTION: What was the first year that the MLB All-Star game decided which league gets home-field advantage in the World Series? TUESDAY’S ANSWER: Roger Staubach holds the record for most career fumbles in a Super Bowl. He coughed up the ball five times in four Super Bowl appearances.

the bases and stole three bags, all in one inning. Bell showed some speed, too — the reliever ran in from the bullpen and tore up the turf with a slide just short of the mound. In all, the Nationals have enjoyed their best run since taking three in a row from 1994-96 — they had lost 12 straight games played to a decision before a 3-1 victory at Anaheim last year.

LEAD CHANGE Spitz takes barrel racing top spot after morning action By Mike McCormick michael.mccormick@news-star.com

A Colorado cowgirl took over the lead in the barrel racing at the International Finals Youth Rodeo Tuesday headed into Tuesday’s night’s final performance of the first round. Action in the second round at the Heart of Oklahoma Exposition Center in Shawnee begins with this morning’s 9 a.m., performance. The second round will conclude with Friday morning’s competition, setting the stage for Friday night’s concluding round when the champions will be determined. First-round winners were to be determined by the end of tonight’s performance and the first paychecks of this year’s IFYR should be handed out starting later today. The top 15 in each of the 10 events, including ties, after Friday morning’s action will qualify for the final round Friday night begininng at 7:30.

Shay Spitz, Lamar, Colo., ran the barrel pattern during Tuesday morning’s action in 16.466 seconds to climb atop the standings. She took over the early lead held by Catoosa’s Kynder Starr, who had run a 16.634 during Sunday night’s initial performance. Starr slipped to third place after Tuesday morning’s action as J’Nae Mullen, from Maysville, took over second with her run of 15.568. Another Colorado cowgirl, Sarah Walker, remained at the top in the breakaway roping after Tuesday morning’s action. Walker, from Kennesburg, recorded a time of 2.2 seconds during Monday morning’s performance to take the lead. A new leader emerged in the bull riding competition when Cody Johnson, Stephenville, Texas, scored an 82.5. He took over the lead from Casey Farrington, Collban, Colo., who had an 81 earlier in the round. Farrington remained in second place headed into Tuesday night’s

action. Texas cowgirl Kelsey Graf, from Vernon, remained on top in the goat tying competition with her run of 7.6 seconds earlier in the week. Skylar Ragan grabbed first place in the standings in pole bending. Her run of 20.171 seconds on Monday night slipped her ahead of early leader Loni Lester, Gonzales, Texas, who had a run of 20.349. An Arkansas roper has grabbed the first-round lead in the calf roping. Legend Mills, from Quitman, Ark., recorded a 9.0 and is just ahead of Elk City’s Aaron Custer, who was timed in 9.2 seconds. A Texan remains in the bulldogging lead. Troy Lee Keaton, from Sealy, was clocked in 3.8 seconds in early first-round action this week and is ahead of Jarrett New, Wimberley, Texas who had a 4.7. Taking over the saddle bronc lead in a big way was Tyler Baeza, Beaver RODEO, Page 2B

TIANJIN, China (AP) — Kevin Durant isn’t ruling out playing basketball abroad next season if the NBA lockout isn’t resolved. The Oklahoma City Thunder forward said Tuesday during a promotional tour in China that he thinks more players will follow Deron Williams’ example and play overseas if the NBA season is disrupted. Williams has said he will play for Besiktas in Turkey if the lockout remains. “We’ll see, I would like to try something new,” Durant said. “But of course, my first option is playing in the NBA. So now I want to see how this lockout goes.” He said he’s still hopeful that a new collective bargaining agreement will be reached. “If not, I will make a decision on where I am going to play basketball,” said Durant, who added he’s in no hurry to make a decision. “I am going to take it slow, everybody’s going to wait to see how this plays out. D-Will, you know, he made his decision quick and I am sure you are going to see a lot of guys kind of follow his footsteps. So, he’s very brave to be the first guy to do it.” He added it is “tough” to see Yao Ming retire, and the 7-foot-6 Houston Rockets center deserves to be in the basketball Hall of Fame. Durant said it has been an honor to play Yao, who is expected to announce July 20 that he’s retiring from the NBA after nine seasons because of leg and foot injuries. The 30-year-old Yao has missed 250 regular-season games over the past six seasons. “Tough, man, tough to see a great player and a great competitor like Yao Ming leave the game after being injured a few years,” Durant said. “As a player, you come into the league, the first thing somebody asks you is what you want to do when you get here, and a lot of players say, ‘I want to dunk over Yao Ming.’ So you can tell how much impact he has in the game.

TOXICOLOGY REPORT

Death ruled accidental OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Oklahoma linebacker Austin Box had five prescription painkillers and an anti-anxiety drug in his system when he died, according to a preliminary toxicology report released Tuesday by the state medical examiner’s office. The death of the 22year-old Box two months ago was ruled accidental. In the report, the agency said the combination of drugs likely caused pulmonary edema, or fluid in the lungs and aspiration pneumonia, which is an inflammation of the lungs

caused by inhaling foreign substances. “There is no greater pain than the loss of a child,” Box’s parents, Craig and Gail Box, said in a prepared statement. “The pain is intensified by knowing that the death of your child could have been prevented. “Anyone that knew Austin would give testament to his pure heart. The love and pride we feel for our son cannot be diminished by the cause of his death. He gave us so much joy and so many wonderful memories. He will forever

be ‘Mommy’s baby’ and ‘Daddy’s little boy.’” A friend found Box unresponsive in the friend’s El Reno home and called authorities the morning of May 19. The friend told a dispatcher Box wasn’t breathing, that Box had been taking pain pills, and later told a police officer “he believed he had overdosed.” An autopsy found the painkillers oxymorphone, morphine, hydrocodone, hydromorphone and oxycodone in Box’s system, along with the anti-anxiety drug alprazolam.

Lockout close to being settled? sides have not yet gotten it done. Yes, they are closer than ever, with several key issues — particularly how to split more than $9 billion in revenues — just about settled. But there is serious doubt that a disruption to the preseason can be avoided. While the regular season still appears safe, the situation isn’t as simple as shaking hands and going back to business as usual, even assuming owners and players patched everything

up when face-to-face talks resume Wednesday — an unlikely scenario. Yet without a collective bargaining agreement in place soon, many teams will need to delay training camp. The New York Giants and Jets and Baltimore Ravens already have canceled out-of-town camps and will do all their preseason work at their home facilities, at a significant cost to the communities where they normally would have gone.

New Sooner coach adds to staff NORMAN (AP) — New Oklahoma wrestling coach Mark Cody is adding two former All-Americans to his staff. Cody said Tuesday that Oklahoma standout Jared Frayer will be a paid assistant and former Oklahoma State star and assistant Tyrone Lewis will be a volunteer assistant.

Frayer spent the past two seasons as an assistant at Wisconsin. While wrestling for the Sooners, he was the 2002 NCAA runner-up at 149 pounds and a four-time NCAA tournament qualifier. He’s also worked on coaching staffs at Iowa and Harvard.

Lewis, from El Reno, spent three years as an assistant at Oklahoma State. He wrestled for the Cowboys from 2001 to 2004, finishing as a national runner-up as a senior. He was an alternate for the 2008 U.S. Olympic team. Cody is also retaining current assistant Michael Lightner.

NEW YORK (AP) — Think back four months to that disappointing day in March when the NFL lockout began. The general opinion was the NNFL owners and players would reach a new labor agreement long before training camps opened. They had plenty of time and about nine billion reasons to get it done. Well, some training camps open at the end of next week, and the two

BLOOMINGTON, Ill. (AP) — A 6-year-old golfer sank a hole in one on a course in central Illinois and calmly walked back to her cart. Why such a quiet reaction? Reagan Kennedy’s father had told the Bloomington girl not to make a lot of noise on the course.

But 13-year-old Cheyenne Broquard says she told her younger sister that a hole in one was the one time a golfer could be excused for making a little noise. The (Bloomington) Pantagraph reports that Kennedy made the 85yard shot on the third

hole at The Links at Ireland Grove last week. Mother Erin Kennedy says her husband started putting a golf club in Reagan’s hands when she was only two. Reagan Kennedy says she’s now working toward her ultimate golf goal — beating her father.

RODEO

Bloomfield, N.M., saw his score of 69.5 points fall to fifth place. Blaine Kaufman, Pretty Prairie, Kan., remained atop of the bareback riding with the 75 he turned in earlier in the round. In second is Jake Choate, Dayton, Texas, with a 73. Sharing the top team

roping standings were three teams, each with times of 5.5 seconds. They include Tate Kirkchenslager, Yuma, Colo., and Jake Smith, Broken Bow; Matt Silva and Levi Silva, Tularosa, N.M.; and Qunton Parchman, Cumberland, City, Tenn. and Lane Mitchell, Bolivar, Tenn.
