The city of Moore celebrated a year of rebuilding with a ceremony on the grounds of the new Moore Medical Center, where the devastating EF5 tornado ravaged the community one year ago Wednesday. With a clear sky overhead, representatives of Oklahoma stood before the audience at the ceremony in remembrance of those lost in the tragedy. They gave praise to the individuals who provided care for Moore during and after
the tornado. “Everyone became a first responder that day,” said Moore Mayor Glenn Lewis. He described the struggle, and ultimately the strength, of Moore and its surrounding Oklahoma communities in overcoming the events of that day. Gov. Mary Fallin echoed the mayor’s remarks, mentioning Moore’s resilience multiple times in her speech. More online at OUDaily.com

The students were grouped together by grade, and the sixth graders being the first group to walk over. The procession was led by the OU Pom Squad and mascot, Sooner.
“This is the same park we used to walk in before the tornado hit,” said Debbie Mantooth. The location of the event showed the meaning of the word rebuild. The familiar site had fresh dirt and newly-planted trees, a far cry from the devastation of last year.

One year later The Oklahoma community celebrates restoration of Moore, honors memories of those lost in last year’s tornadoes

Cars line up along the sides of SE 4th Street in Moore after Monday, May 20, 2013 tornado. Pedestrians gave information to passing people in cars as many made their way west down the road toward the center of destruction from the storms.
Commemorating the storm A full day of memorials and celebrations took place that focused on the rebuilding of Moore one year after the devastating tornado that tore through the community.
Dean reflects on Okie spirit
Community helps Coach An accomplished man, Dub Raper has coached basketball in Oklahoma for 44 years, through which he acquired the nickname “Coach.” Happily married for 56 years to his wife Jackie, this hall of fame coach and church deacon is known for his stern demeanor and gentle heart. However, Dub’s resilience was tested when the May 20th tornado claimed all he owned. Now, a year later, the Rapers do not remember what the tornado took from them but, rather, what it gave them. After the storm had passed, Dub was finally able to return home from work to find that his house had been leveled and his wife injured. Jackie was home when it struck and suffered a broken left arm along with several cracked ribs. She was hospitalized and eventually needed a restructured shoulder. “Looking back, it is truly a humbling experience. It really gives you insight on what is important in life,” said Dub. After years of giving his time and
energy to hundreds of students, it was Dub who needed the help, and help came. “Every single student he had ever coached got in contact with us when they found out,” said Jackie. “When I was in the hospital, the messages of love and encouragements kept flowing in.” The extended support given to the Rapers did not only come from previous players, but from his four children, 10 grandchildren and even random strangers. Many times, the Rapers found envelopes of money in their mailbox. “It was the best thing that ever happened to me because it brought me closer to my family. We lost everything, and in return, we gained more than we could imagine,” said Dub. The concepts of community and giving are not new to the Rapers, but are ideas all of us needed to be reminded of.

As the one-year anniversary approaches, University of Oklahoma Arts and Sciences Dean Kelly Damphousse remembers the EF5 tornado for what it revealed about his university, city, state, and even the nation that he calls home. “I was so moved and impressed by the Oklahoma spirit that was exhibited here on campus,” recalls Damphousse. “It was just really impressive, that whole time period.” Damphousse began the afternoon of May 20th, 2013 at a storage facility in Moore. He was helping his sister-in-law move to Moore from College Station, Texas. Fortunately, Damphousse was alerted to the tornado in enough time to exit the facility after receiving a text from a former student. This spurred him to act so quickly that he left the U-Haul truck’s back door wide open. “These two guys that we had never met before and never saw again knew that we were in there, so they were there with crescent wrenches because the power had gone out and we couldn’t get through the gate,” said Damphousse. “So they were
Student finds a new calling there trying to get the gate open for us. The tornado was a quarter of a mile away.” Damphousse’s YouTube footage depicts the men working with the massive tornado swirling in the background. From atop a hill, Damphousse watched the tornado ravage his city. “It was kind of hailing on and off,” said Damphousse. “Storm sirens would go on and then they would go off. When the tornado came by, it was gone in five minutes. And then you’re just left with this devastation and you just gotta go every day and slog through it until you get done.” The lessons in the human spirit didn’t stop at the storage facility. “My sister-in-law, whose goods it (was) that were badly damaged — I was always impressed by how calm she took all that,” said Damphousse. “She just said, ‘Oh well, let’s start cleaning it up.’ And she was not devastated, and she recognized that that was just material goods. And she realized that, in comparison to the lives that were lost, her losses were relatively minimal.” More online at OUDaily.com

Freshman year of college is hard, but imagine finishing your freshman year then losing everything you own. This is what OU student Jacob Lyles experienced last year. Lyles and his family lost their home along with all their possessions when their neighborhood suffered a direct hit from last year’s May 20 tornado. “It seems like a lifetime ago,” said Lyles. As the mile-wide EF5 tornado approached his house, 14 people and two dogs piled into his neighbor’s six-by-six foot shelter. Lyles sat at the top step, holding the door shut as the winds whipped wildly outside. What Lyles did in the moments following the disaster would have more influence on his life than he could imagine. After the storm passed, he opened the shelter into a world that was unrecognizable to him. Homes were flattened, cars crumpled and the earth sunk under his feet like a sponge. With the safety of his family secured, he had only one thing on his mind: the children. Lyles lived down the street from Plaza Towers Elementary, which had been reduced to rubble. “I didn’t think, I just ran,” said Lyles.

Briarwood Elementary students walk to their new school one year after it was destroyed by an EF5 tornado.
Jacob was one of the first responders on the scene. All around him were neighbors and parents frantically searching for children. As they were searching, Lyles heard cries for help from the rubble. “I could hear someone calling for help, so I climbed over a fallen wall and saw two little girls wedged between the wall and ground,” said Lyles. One at a time, he pulled the girls from the pressing weight of the wall. He was calm and collected as he comforted the young children until first responders arrived. He described the rest of the week as a blur. Reporters flocked the affected area and Lyles’ act of heroism soon became a nationally covered story. “Only good things have happened since the storm,” said Lyles. Lyles, his mother and younger sister moved into their new home this past April and are excited for their future in Moore. Lyles’ unique experience helped shape his vision for his future. He is now a certified EMT basic with future plans of becoming a firefighter. “I realized that all I want to do is help people,” said Lyles. “It was no coincidence that I found them. Those girls needed me as much as I needed them.”

Proceed with caution and be prepared to set down ground rules in order to protect your interests.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): You will crave knowledge and information. Greater involvement in current interests will help you grow mentally and philosophically. CANCER (June 21-July 22): Consolidate your debts and prepare to begin again. The changes that are coming your way will be spectacular; having a clean slate will make it easier to move forward. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Sudden and unexpected opportunities are present. Donâ€™t waste time procrastinating, or you will miss out. Share as little personal information as possible to avoid complications or setbacks. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Clear up any unfinished business before you move on to personal matters.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Think before you take action. Hold off on making a decision that has the potential to change your life. Everything will work itself out if you give the people you are involved with time to think. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Your imagination is active, and the ideas you offer will be welcome. Focus on who you are and what you want. Someone you know will mislead you if you appear to be vulnerable. Honesty will be the best policy when it comes to getting what you want or deserve.

Is ‘Godzilla’ an epic disaster or monstrous triumph? Film features masterful visuals, epic monsters Jordan Rippetoe Life and Arts Reporter
Featuring an all-star cast and spectacular visuals, Godzilla triumphs, mostly. Godzilla has been around for a long time, sixty years, in fact. No other creature has left such a large footprint on cinema history. His last outing in the U.S., the 1998 “Godzilla,” was a disaster. Finally, Godzilla gets a movie that shows why he is the King of Monsters, but the film focuses too much on the humans and not enough on Godzilla. From a technical standpoint, the movie delivers. From the individual scales on Godzilla to the realistic looking destruction, everything looks incredible. Of course
that is to be expected from visual effects supervisor Jim Rygiel, who worked on movies such as “The Lord of the Rings” trilogy. Even the music, composed by Alexandre Desplat, was phenomenal — especially the haunting voices during the HALO jump. The story was an interesting mix of human drama and classic monster battles. There was even some food for thought in the movie, which many summer blockbusters lack. One character in the movie said, “The arrogance of men is thinking nature is in their control and not the other way around.” When two new radiation-eating monsters (or MUTOs) attack the humans, nature unleashes Godzilla to restore the balance of nature. One way the new movie differed from many previous Godzilla films was the human element. While it may not have been a groundbreaking human story,
watching the struggle of a man desperately trying to get home to his family helped me connect with the movie, unlike many monster films. The acting, for the most part, was superb. Bryan Cranston excelled as the scientist Joe Brody, a man who never stopped looking for the truth. Soon, the story becameabout Joe’s son Ford, portrayed by Aaron Taylor-Johnson, and his family. However, Taylor-Johnson did not have the screen presence that Cranston did. His acting was wooden at best. Would some emotion have killed him? His eyes watered once. I guess I can give him that.

Six students create sculptures for Norman Arts Council Selective program provides experience to undergrads Mikaela McGhee
Life and Arts Reporter
Six students were selected by the Norman Arts Council to create outdoor sculptures that are now on display in Lion’s Park, next to the Firehouse Arts Center. The sculptures will remain on display for the Norman community throughout the summer and into August. The works are assorted and include an abstract, figurative sculpture, a sculpture that speaks to harmony and inclusion through simplicity, a work that includes a wind chime, and a refined geometrical sculpture. One student incorporated technology uses solar power and LED lights. Another used a thermochromatic paint
that changes color with temperature. These artistic works were created by four OU seniors and two OU juniors who were chosen to build their works during the spring semester. Senior students are Rani Cozad, Megan Schwann, Ryan Harris, and Alexis Dickens. Junior students are Anna Lipscomb and Amy Sanders. Professor Jonathan Hils challenged his students to create professional sculptures to submit for deliberation as if they were applying for a professional civic sculpture contract. Erinn Gavaghan, director of the Norman Arts Council, and Larry Walker, chair of the Public Art Board, listened to each student’s proposal that included introducing a model of the presented artwork and a written
description addressing why the work was significant to display in the public, outdoor exposition. This is the second year that has teamed up with the Norman Arts Council. He believes it is good for his students to do projects like this so they become familiar with how the art process works. Hils’ favorite genre of artwork is abstract because it forces the artist to see the world differently. He wants his students to approach art from both a mental and emotional standpoint. This way, the observer is able to think and feel something at the same time. The purpose of the project is to get students involved in their community while also allowing them to explore their creativity. Sometimes simplicity
is what is best for the community. Harris’ piece, titled “Strength in Unity,” is a sculpture that speaks to integration through a simple plus sign. Hils considers Harris’ sculpture to be the artwork that ties best with the community. “Strength in Unity” gives the sense of how people need to lean on each other in times of despair. The OU School of A r t & A r t Hi s t o r y , t h e We i t z e n h o f f e r Fa m i l y College of Fine Arts and the OU Honors College are helping in times of need by funding these artistic works through two Undergraduate R e s e a rc h O p p o r t u n i t y Grants. At OU, students are taken to conferences and workshops where they are given real life experience into the art world. The OU School
OU School of Art and Art History senior Rani Cozad works on her sculpture, which is scheduled to be installed in mid-May at Lion’s Park in Norman.
of Art & Art History is committed to giving students a wide range of possibilities in order to discover their path as an artist. This project is just one of many
exciting experiences OU offers to emphasize brilliance in the arts and professional practices.
