CRIME

Keys in ignition beckon thieves Norman Police report an increase in car theft, advising extra caution CAITLIN SCHACHTER Campus Reporter

The recent cold weather has many Normanites leaving their started cars unattended in the morning so the cars can thaw while they can stay warm, but this practice has left some citizens carless. There have been six cars reported stolen in the last month because of this practice, said Tom Easley, Norman Police Department captain. “This is a self-inflicted crime,” Easley said. “If you don’t start your car and leave it unattended, then it won’t get stolen.”

The most recent incident occurred at 5:41 a.m. Feb. 11 when Norman PD received a call of a stolen vehicle on the 800 block of Brooks Street. The victim reported he started his car and went back inside. When he returned it had been stolen, according to a press release. A car matching the description of the stolen vehicle was seen entering Interstate-35 Northbound on Lindsey Street. The pursuit went into Oklahoma City where the suspect, Glen Gregory, got out of the vehicle and ran, according to the press release. Gregory was placed in the F. DeWayne Beggs Detention Center on charges of unauthorized use of a motor vehicle, eluding a police officer, driving under suspension and a valid Oklahoma County felony warrant, according to a press

release. Though bike theft is the No. 1 reported crime on campus, car theft is also an issue, said Maj. Bruce Chan, OU Police Department spokesman. Out of the 278 felonies reported last year, 13 of them were car burglaries, Chan said. To prevent additional theft from occurring, students can use different preventative methods. “I would suggest for students to lock their valuables in their trunk or in their glove compartment so they won’t be as visible to the thief,” Chan said. “Or I would also suggest for students to take any valuables More online at OUDaily.com

L&A: Just in time for Valentine’s Day, “Endless Love” is a poorly constructed romance. (Page 5)

U student Whitney Thompson made it to the semifinals of the Jeopardy! College Championship, after some smart wagering in the final Jeopardy! round. The quarterfinal round of Jeopardy! College Championship aired Tuesday morning, pitting Thompson against two other collegiate students, James Fulwiler from Temple University and Sarah Stevens from the University of Delaware. “Going from couch Jeopardy! with a dog on either side of me to standing behind a podium was way too exciting,” Thompson said. After years of playing couch Jeopardy!, Thompson waited behind the podium for host Alex Trebek to introduce the topics that would make or break her chances of moving onto semifinals.

Fulwiler answered, “What is ‘The Scarlet Letter’?,” securing his lead. Stevens stayed silent until the first two categories had cleared, chiming in with “Who is Sacagawea,” finally putting her on the board. By the first commercial break, Fulwiler was in the lead with $3,000, Thompson in second with $1,600 and Stevens trailing behind with $400. After the break, we got to know a little bit more about the student behind the Oklahoma sweatshirt.

The No. 2 ranked Oklahoma women’s gymnastics team looks to take on No. 3 LSU, No. 17 Arizona and Kentucky in the Metroplex Challenge at 7 p.m. Saturday in Fort Worth. Oklahoma looks forward to the Metroplex Challenge this weekend where they w i l l f a c e t w o nat i o na l ly-ranked opponents. The Sooners have proven to be a force to be reckoned with, holding either the No. 1 or No. 2 ranking nationally since the second week of the season. After a difficult loss to the LSU Tigers at home Sunday, the Sooners are undoubtedly ready to go head-to-head with the Tigers for a second weekend in a row. The Metroplex Challenge is the first podium meet for Oklahoma this year. Junior Rebecca Clark said the feel of podium meets is different, both physically and mentally, but the preparation is the same. “We are focusing on the details. We didn’t have the best beam rotation (against L S U ) , b u t w e d i d h av e strong performances in the other events. We will continue to build off of those,” Clark said. This week was also special for two athletes in particular. Freshman Chayse Capps earned her third Newcomer of the Week accolade this season after an incredible performance against LSU, including a

Freshman Chayse Capps dances to the music during her floor routine against Louisiana State University on Sunday afternoon at Lloyd Noble Center. The Sooners fell to the Tigers 197.325-197.650. The Sooners will get a second chance to take on LSU, along with Arizona and Kentucky this weekend in the Metroplex Challenge in Fort Worth.

Sophomore Haley Scaman received her first Big 12 Gymnast of the Week award after the meet against LSU. Scaman scored a 9.9 or higher in all of her events against the Tigers.

“These awards are truly a reflection of their hard work throughout the season,” coach K.J. Kindler said. It is no doubt that these individual accolades are impressive. Oklahoma is currently first in the Big 12 for weekly awards. West Virginia is second on the list and has six fewer awards than OU. The balance beam is

typically a strong event for OU, despite their uncharacter istic per for mance last weekend. Kindler acknowledged the previous performance and the mental errors that occurred but seemed very optimistic for the upcoming meets. “It is going to happen again — where we are going to have a miss, and they are going to have to handle that pressure, so it is good practice for the future.

Although the environment should have no effect on the players, Mullins did say the courts in Arkansas are different than the courts in Norman. “The courts in Arkansas are a little faster, so we’ve been trying to take time away from the players, giving them no rhythm, making them feel a little uncomfortable, which is how they’re going to feel on Friday and Saturday.” Senior Whitney Ritchie shares the beliefs of her coach and said that the team is just trying to play as well on the road as at home “We just have to play like we do at home,” she said.

Sooners open season against Seton Hall Warm tempetures welcome baseball season in Norman

Frigid temperatures picked the right time to leave Norman, as the Oklahoma baseball team opens its 2014 campaign this weekend with a home series against Seton Hall. Snow covered grass and a freezing chill hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t created ideal baseball conditions for first-year coach Pete Hughes and his squad leading up to opening day. The Sooners have often been forced to resort to indoor practice. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The last two weeks have been challenging. If thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s snow on the ground, or if itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s below 30 degrees, then I wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do it,â&#x20AC;? Hughes said of practicing outdoors. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dangerous.â&#x20AC;? With spring-like temperatures projected for the weekend, Hughes wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to worry about the weather. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be more focused on his inaugural game as a Sooner. Oklahoma hired Hughes in June following Sunny G o l l o w a y â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s d e p a r t u r e . Having been in Norman for months, the former Virginia Tech coach has settled in nicely and is eagerly anticipating his OU debut. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t wait,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m finally getting used to wearing crimson, and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m starting to like it.â&#x20AC;? His players are also having trouble waiting for Friday to roll around. The Sooners have gone through plenty of practices since their loss in last seasonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s super regional round. To achieve the often-spoken goal of getting to Omaha for this seasonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s College World Series, OUâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s level of focus and intensity during practice hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t faltered.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -Proceed with caution. Someone may be trying to take advantage of you. Make sure you are aware of whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s expected, and donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be coerced into doing something youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll regret.

PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- Indulge in things you find pleasurable. Soothe your nerves by listening to your favorite music or enjoying a special meal. Relaxation could help you feel refreshed and rejuvenated.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- Get out and mingle. Sitting at home will only make you more lethargic. Get up, get moving, and indulge in something youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve never done before. You could gain a whole new perspective.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- Review contracts before you make a commitment. Make sure everyone is in agreement and that you are being treated fairly before you proceed. Better to be safe than sorry.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Go over your records to determine whether you have been careless with money. Be honest with yourself and make adjustments to your budget before your debts take over.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- Enroll in a course, begin a creative endeavor or get involved in a sports activity. You will meet people with similar interests, and learn something valuable in the process.

‘Chocolate Factory’ to ‘Endless Love’ a trifle include bacon, bugs Life & Arts columnist

Sweet event comes to Memorial Union Sama Khajawa

Life & Arts Reporter

The only thing in the world that is better than chocolate is free chocolate. This year the Union Programming Board w ill host a Willy Wonka-themed event called the Chocolate Factory from 7-9 p.m. Friday in Oklahoma Me m o r i a l Un i o n ’s Wi l l Rogers Room. “We decided to do Willy Wonka because people can relate to that,” said Alex Len, advertising sophomore and coordinator for the event. The Chocolate Factory is held annually in conjunction with Valentine’s Day and this time it is happening the very same day. There is an assortment of entertainment lined up for the night. And no chocolate-based event is complete without a chocolate fountain. David Thibodeaux, international business sophomore and food supervisor for the event, explained how there will be a table laden with fountain dipping tidbits — ranging from the ordinary such as marshmallows, to the bizarre like pickles and potatoes. “We’re also bringing in chocolate-covered insects because why not?” Len said. Chocolate-covered bacon was the highlight of last year. This time the UPB wanted to get something just as different and adventurous, Thibodeaux said.

cott Spencer’s 1979 novel “Endless Love” is a work concerning the passion that surrounds first love. In some ways a “Fifty Shades of Grey” for a younger generation, “Endless Love” exposes the vulnerability of love and all

of the complications that can arise from it. The 2014 adaptation of “Endless Love” might as well not have even used the same title. Gone is the gritty world where love and sex clash within one young couple’s blooming romance. In its place is PG-13 eroticism and a narrative that fails to grab your attention. “Endless Love” tells the story of a privileged girl, Jade, who has always been on the outside of the social circle. After her brother tragically passed away years earlier, she closed herself off and instead sought the comfort

of her family and books. But when she meets David, a charismatic boy with a troubled history, they immediately fall for each other. Their ensuing reckless love affair is troubled by parents trying to keep them apart. With that paper-thin plot in mind, “Endless Love” wastes what could have been a solid romance. with most of the problems See back more online leading to its two leads. actors.Visit No matter how OUDaily.com horrible afor script — and “Endless the complete review Love’s” is pretty bad — if the oudaily.com/l_and_a lead couple has chemistry

Union Programming Boards’s Chocolate Factory event coincides nicely with Valentine’s Day. Stop by from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. today in Oklahoma Memorial Union’s Will Rogers Room for some free chocolate.

“We wanted to at least get one item that was different from last year,” Thibodeaux said. “[We’re] kind of curious how that one will turn out.” Other than the chocolate, there will also be some interactive games for people to enjoy. “It’s like ‘Minute to Win It’ kind of games,” Len said. Bianca Herrera, University College freshman and event decorator, said the games will be one to two minutes long where contestants will have to complete a task as quickly as possible. By the end of the night, prizes will be handed out to the winners. “For those who haven’t seen ‘Willy Wonka,’ it’ll be playing as well,” Herrera said. Len said that the UPB held a poll regarding the older and newer version and interestingly enough, the older

version won by popular vote. Nostalgia certainly has a way of swaying the audience. Finally, the cherry on top will be Willy Wonka himself strutting around the Union if anyone wishes to capture a moment with, as Grandpa Joe put it, “the most amazing, the most fantastic, the most extraordinary chocolate maker the world has ever seen.” The Chocolate Factory is an open event where people can come and go as they please. It is full of interesting activities to indulge in and enjoy with friends and loved ones. “Everyone loves free and everyone loves chocolate,” Thibodeaux said. Sama Khawaja sama.khawaja-1@ou.edu
