Oil pursued despite drought


This illustration describes the process of hydraulic fracturing. Finley Resources, Inc., an oil and gas company from Fort Worth, Texas, has used more than 400,000 gallons of Norman drinking water for fracturing.

Hydraulic drilling company uses abundance of drinking water ARIANNA PICKARD • CONTINUOUS NEWS EDITOR


ay and night, Norman resident Patricia Askins hears a steady pounding from a hydraulic fracturing operation just across the street from her home. Lying in bed, she hears the sound of the pump mingle with a beeping noise warning people to get out of the way of trucks backing up at the site. Askins said she was surprised by the late-night noises when the drilling operation began about a month ago on Franklin Road in east Norman. “But my husband wasn’t surprised. He said, ‘They’re

digging a well. It’s a 24-hour operation. They don’t shut it off because it’s night. They keep digging,” Askins said. But what surprised Askins even more was the discovery that the drilling company is using Norman’s drinking water to break up the rocks and retrieve oil. While city officials advise residents to conserve their water because of an ongoing drought, Finley Resources, Inc., an oil and gas company from Fort Worth, Texas, has used more than 400,000 gallons of Norman drinking water for fracturing, said Shawn O’Leary, director of Public Works for the City of Norman. There’s nothing illegal about this operation — Norman Mayor Cindy Rosenthal said the City of Norman issued the company a bulk water permit so the operators could connect their hose to a water hydrant near their drilling site. Despite the legality of the situation, Rosenthal said the fact

that one company can buy thousands of gallons of drinking water for fracturing while Norman is still undergoing mandatory water conservation has unveiled what she calls a “gap” in city policies. Some common customers issued bulk water permits to connect to hydrants are nonprofit groups, who need the water for a car wash, or construction companies, who use the water to spray dirt down for dust control, Rosenthal said. “Our policies at the moment are silent on differentiating [among] those,” she said. “So when this company came in, a clerk issued the permit just like any other person who comes in and asks for a bulk water permit.” The city started receiving complaints after Sarah TerryCobo, a reporter for the Journal Record, reported that the company was using Norman’s potable water.

New laboratory pays off in life-saving ability State-of-the-art lab opened Tuesday KELLY ROGERS Campus Reporter @KellyRogersOU

The first two procedures were completed Tuesday in OU Medical Center ’s new, $20 million laboratory following 10 years of construction. Simple procedures that can quickly turn critical will be done in the 20,000-square-foot facility, which houses cardiovascular and electrophysiology technology. Scott Coppenbarger, director of public relations at OU Medical Center, said pulling these two disciplines of medicine together in one laboratory will enable safer

and faster care for patients. “Our business is saving lives, and this facility is the total package,” Coppenbarger said. With a combination of experienced professionals and state-of-the-art equipment, the lab will also provide a place for OU medical students to observe and learn in an updated environment, Coppenbarger said. “We are a teaching hospital,” Coppenbarger said. “Students in every aspect of our facility will be exposed to the new facility for an opportunity to learn.” Coppenbarger said this is not just a place where complex surgeries can be completed and students can learn, but a place where lives will be saved. The advanced equipment

will ensure patient safety with lower doses of x-rays delivered and clear, detailed results, according to a press release. What sets this lab apart from others, Coppenbarger said, is the ability and equipment they have to break into a full open-heart surgery without having to move the patient. “We expect to make full use of it,” Coppenbarger said. The majority of the facility’s funding came from the Hospital Corporation of America, OU Medical Center’s parent company. Kelly Rogers

This water hydrant connects drinkable water from the City of Norman to a hydraulic fracturing operation near Franklin Road in east Norman. This hydraulic fracturing operation near Franklin Road in east Norman uses water from the City of Norman to retrieve natural gas by using high pressure to pump the water underground.

The drinkability of the water used for hydraulic fracturing can’t ever be restored because it’s mixed with sand and chemicals, some of which are toxic, said Robert Puls, the director of the Oklahoma Water Survey at OU. This fluid is then injected under high pressure to break up rock formations underground. Once that rock cracks under the pressure, the sand that was mixed in with the water holds open the cracks so that water and oil will flow into the well, said Stan Paxton, a physical scientist with the Oklahoma Water Science Center.

Hornbeak announces plans to transfer Guard leaves on positive note Ryan Gerbosi

Men’s Basketball Beat Reporter @RyanGerbosi

Je’lon Hornbeak seemed to be the embodiment of OU’s bright basketball future when he started all but three games as a freshman. But just one year later, the guard is leaving the program. Coach Lon Kruger announced Hornbeak’s decision to transfer Tuesday in a press release. “It is always disappointing when a player leaves a program,” Kruger said in the release. “But we all wish the very best for Je’lon.” The Arlington, Texas, native averaged 5.4 points, 2.3 rebounds and 2.1 assists in his two seasons with the Sooners. Hornbeak spent some time running the point in his first year, but the emergence of freshman Jordan Woodard in 201314 limited Hornbeak’s minutes. He never started as a sophomore and averaged 18.2 minutes per game, down from 22.7 as a freshman. The guard also missed four games in December with a foot injury that lingered in the following weeks. “The last two years, I had two sets of great teammates,” Hornbeak said in the release. “We really set the bar for the incoming freshmen (next year). Now it’s their job to keep raising that bar.” More online at

Choosing sides on pay for play Our View: The issue of pay for play

chance to go pro, they will have received a college education to enter the workforce. However, many people feel that athletes take easier classes, choose easier majors and don’t have a focus on academics. We do not believe student-athletes should be encouraged to take easy courses, but we also know that college is what you make of it. Choosing a major is a personal decision, and we encourage all students, not just athletes, to make the most of their time in the classroom. Obviously, even a full athletic scholarship cannot cover every incidental expense associated with attending college, but there are outlets for athletes to receive additional funds. While taking out student loans isn’t ideal, we can see both sides of the argument for and against paying players while they’re in college.

is complicated and requires careful consideration of both sides of the argument, which is what we’ve done to help you make your own decision.

The National Labor Relations Board decision, which considers Northwestern University football players employees and allow them to unionize, has made us think about the current state of athletes governed by the NCAA and whether pay for play is a good idea. We don’t pretend to have all the answers; this is an intensely nuanced issue that involves much more than just sports. It’s about young peoples’ lives and the way they are treated when they become college athletes. Instead of saying absolutely yes or no about the issue, we want to give you a few key points and let you, our readers, decide.

Christopher Michie/The Daily

Players’ names and likenesses

Sophomore quarterback Trevor Knight rushes for yardage during this year’s Red-White spring game. The issue of pay for play is a complicated one and should be considered from all sides of the argument.

It’s a misconception that every single college football player is receiving a full-ride scholarship. In fact, Division I universities are limited to 85 scholarships for football, and not all of those are necessarily full scholarships. When you consider that major programs like OU have more than 100 men on the roster, it becomes clear that not every athlete’s time in college is a paid-for dream. And scholarship restrictions are more intense for smaller sports. For example, Division I schools can give out only 4.5 men’s golf scholarships, and it takes five men to have a full tournament team. Not every college athlete sees scholarship money for their talents and, most shockingly, those players don’t even own their own names. They cannot profit from products using their likenesses or by charging for signatures. But the NCAA certainly profits off those men’s and women’s names. Sure, football players’ names aren’t on the backs of commercially sold jerseys, but their numbers represent them. All those No. 10 jerseys sold here at OU represent Blake Bell, not just a random number. And athletes do not receive

compensation when you see them at events to autograph merchandise. We don’t know how to solve the problem of pay for play, but we do believe that athletes should own their own names and images and be able to charge for autographs or receive payment when video games use their likenesses and numbers.

Collegiate athletics is a privilege

On the flip side of the argument, playing sports in college is not something you have to do; it’s something you choose to do. Ultimately, athletes do not have a right to play collegiate sports, so we can see why opponents of the Northwestern unionization decision say the scholarships are Outdated rules enough. NCAA rules do not prohibit Some of the NCAA’s rules are unplayers from taking out student loans, doubtedly archaic and illogical. so why can’t that be an option to Student-athletes can’t take advancover costs not met by scholarships? tage of all the offers regular stuAfter all, loans are a reality for so dents can, because of the NCAA’s many students who don’t play sports. overly-strict rules on booster conThe NCAA also has the little-known tributions.

And for athletes who don’t have a

How do you decide how much money to give? We understand the reasoning behind allowing Northwestern University football players to unionize. After all, those men devote 50 to 60 hours of time per week to practice, more than many people put into a full-time job. Sometimes the “athlete” in “student-athlete” does seem to come first, and we can see why those players would want commiserate pay. But how do colleges fairly decide how much money to pay their players? Northwestern is a unique example because it is a private university and can appeal to the National Labor Relations Board. Public universities are governed by state laws, and considering that 24 states have right-to-work laws, we likely won’t be seeing football players at public universities unionize anytime soon. The Northwestern decision is important because it has opened a national dialogue on players’ rights and NCAA rules. We aren’t sure how to reconcile concerns about pay for play, but we want you to know about some of the contributing issues and make your own decision.

pow wow

Troupe to celebrate culture Dancers return to OU for 16th year Ashley Geary

Life & Arts Reporter

The school of music will present a performance of traditional music and dance by Native American dance troupe Oklahoma Fancy Dancers at 8 tonight in Sharp Concert Hall. The performers will demonstrate powwow music, a traditional style of dance where different tribes who do not know each other come together and share their dances. Kevin Connywerdy founded the Oklahoma Fancy Dancers troupe with his stepdad, Steve Littleman, in 1996. The Fancy Dancers have been involved in performing concerts across the state and the world.

Art rejuvenates downtown Oklahoma City Historic Film Row hosts monthly art walk with concerts and film screenings Tony Beaulieu Life & Arts Editor @tonybe787

Fowler Honda of Norman will sponsor the comic bookthemed community event “Superheroes” from 6 to 9 p.m. Friday on historic Film Row in downtown Oklahoma City. “Superheroes” is the latest installment in a series of events in historic Film Row supported by Fowler known as Premier on Film Row. Kendall Brown, Executive Director of the Individual Artists of Oklahoma (IAO) Gallery is also acting as volunteer coordinator for Friday’s art walk. Premiere on Film Row is a regular event that takes place the third Friday of each month to help promote local artists and venues in the OKC area, Brown said. Although it sponsors many events, including exhibits by local artists and film screenings, Friday’s festivities will include a free outdoor concert by Oklahoma City rapper Jabee, Brown said.

To tie into the evening’s theme of superheroes, there will be a mask-making station for children, and The Paramount will host a free outdoor screening of Pixar’s “The Incredibles,” Brown said. For art lovers, the evening will feature 30 to 50 local artists selling vintage and repurposed items, as well as original works of art, sponsored by intellectual law firm Dunlap Codding and hosted outside of their community events center, DC on Film Row. “They don’t take any commission, which means when people come down here and purchase from these artists, they know that 100 percent of their purchase is going directly to the artist,” Brown said. DC on Film Row Director and shareholder Doug Sorocco said the event is an opportunity to bring more people to the growing business district. “Being on Film Row, it’s part of our mission as a company
