HIGH HEAT FIRES UP NORMAN Weather records could be broken if trends continue RACHAEL CERVENKA | THE DAILY Wednesday rain kept heat under 100 degrees; forecasts predict more hot days Norman experienced a small break from the heat thanks to rain Tuesday, but forecasters are predicting the hot weather will continue and could surpass the 1980 record of 50 days of 100-degree weather in a calender year. Norman’s high on Tuesday reached 98 degrees, which broke a 13-day streak of 100-plus degree weather, said Gary McManus, associate state climatologist. During the month of June, the average high temperature for the Norman area was just over 97 degrees, said Kevin Kloesel of the Oklahoma Climatological Survey. So far in July, the average temperature is about 103 degrees, he said. “We are currently working our way up, what I would call, the heat hall of fame,” Kloesel said. The Oklahoma Climatological Survey is trying to determine what has caused these above-normal temperatures, Kloesel said. Kloesel compared the situation to getting out of the shower — once a person steps out of the shower, they feel cold because the water is evaporating off their skin, he said. This same process happens with the ground. When there is a lot of moisture in the ground, evaporation keeps the temperatures near the ground a bit cooler. If there is not any moisture in the ground,

Ways to stay cool when it’s hot

Heat exhaustion

Keep water bottles in the freezer; grab one when you’re ready to go outside. As the ice melts, you’ll have a supply of cold water with you. Avoid caffeine and alcohol as these will promote dehydration. If you don’t have air-conditioning, spend at least parts of the day in a shopping mall, public library, movie theater or other public spaces that are cool. Wear loose, cotton clothing preferably of lighter colors when outdoors. Use ceiling fans, they can help circulate air and make you feel cooler even in an air-conditioned house. Drink plenty of water along with sports drinks or other sources of electrolytes to combat dehydration.

Heat exhaustion is a mild form of a heat-related illness that develops after several days of exposure to high temperatures and drinking inadequate amounts of fluids. Elderly people, people with high blood pressure and people working or exercising in a hot environment are most prone to heat exhaustion. If heat exhaustion is untreated, it may progress to heat stroke, which is a medical emergency. Warning signs of heat exhaustion include: » heavy sweating » dizziness » paleness » headache » muscle cramps » nausea or vomiting » tiredness » fainting » weakness

OU does not have to directly adhere to Norman’s current water conservation efforts, but the university does make an effort to use less water when it can, OU Facilities Management director said. OU has its own well system which supplies the university with non-potable water that is used for irrigation purposes across campus, Facilities Management director Brian Ellis said. Because OU’s irrigation water is supplied by its own wells, it doesn’t have to follow any conservation efforts by the city of Norman, Ellis said. Norman’s water conservation efforts is at stage two of three and mandates residents and commercial users not to water their lawns between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m. with restrictions applying during watering times, according to the city’s website. The conservation effort is mandatory and was applied because the city’s demand for water exceeds the current supply by more than 3 million gallons a day, said Ken Komiske, Norman’s utilities director. Excess demand is purchased from Oklahoma City which is under its own pressures due to the weather, Komiske said. READ THE FULL STORY ON OUDAILY.COM


Othello’s under new ownership Camp Crimson to have most attendees ever

Expanding freshmen class causing camp’s enrollment to swell by 250 students from last year’s overall enrollment

Othello’s has been leased to the owner of Othello’s in Edmond, and he plans to reopen the business in early August despite a tax warrant placed on the property. Bob Weiss, owner of the Edmond Othello’s, has leased Othello’s in Norman and hopes to have the restaurant reopened before school starts in August, said Mitchell Rozin, Weiss’ attorney. Rozin said he and Weiss are filing for their mixed-beverage license this week. “Othello’s in Norman has been a legacy, a tradition in Norman, and we want to continue that,” said Nancy Weiss, daughter of Bob.

Camp Crimson, OU’s student orientation program, will have a record number of students attend the camp’s three sessions this July. The near 1,800 students participating in this year’s camp will shatter the old Camp Crimson attendance record, said Zach Stevens, Camp Crimson director. As of right now, there will be 250 students more for the entire camp compared to 2010, Stevens said. The camp’s Boomer session will run today through Saturday, the Sooner session is July 21-23 and the OKU session is July 28-30, Stevens said. As freshman enrollment has continued to grow, Camp Crimson is getting attendance from close to half the students from each class, Stevens said. “We would really love to see that number continue to grow because, we feel it’s really a beneficial program,” Stevens said. Camp Crimson is for transfer students as well, he said. READ FULL STORY ON OUDAILY.COM

It’s high time for ‘coming-out’ party Any gay person who has grown up in this state STAFF COLUMN knows Oklahomans have a long way to go before Zac Smith reaching social equality. It may be tempting to wait passively for liberal politicians to drive society in the direction of tolerance. However, a critical look at their policies shows that, despite the pro-gay rhetoric used to woo interested voters, they are most invested in maintaining the status quo. Even President Barack Obama, who successfully manipulated gay voters in 2008, is a declared opponent of same-sex marriage. It is the people, not the political elite, who must drive societal change through direct action. One of the most powerful forms of direct action any gay individual can take is to come out of the closet — to declare their homosexuality to those close to them and to refuse to gloss over their sexual orientation in general. Homophobes who believe all of their loved ones are heterosexual will find it easy to convince themselves homosexuals are a fringe group of deviants and lunatics. However, someone who knows someone they respect is gay will find it more difficult to demonize homosexuals. READ THE FULL COLUMN ON OUDAILY.COM ››

Medications not prescribed to Box Sooners enjoying

World Cup drama

El Reno police discover OU LB illegally acquired pain pills that killed him JAMES CORLEY

The Oklahoma Daily

None of the six prescription drugs found in OU linebacker Austin Box’s system were prescribed to him, El Reno Police Chief Ken Brown said. The police department checked the drugs against Oklahoma’s prescriptionmonitoring database, and none of the five pain-killers — oxymorphone, morphine, hydrocodone, hydromorphone and oxycodon — or the anti-anxiety drug alprazolam found in Box’s system when he died May 19 had been prescribed to him. The death was ruled accidental, according to Box’s toxicology report released Tuesday. The El Reno police are investigating how Box acquired the drugs without prescriptions. The OU athletic department declined to comment. Prior to the findings, Craig and Gail Box, Austin’s parents, told The Oklahoman they were not aware of their son having prescriptions for the pain-killers he was taking, likely to cope with pain from a back injury. Box had a history of injuries while playing for OU. He suffered a knee injury in 2008 and missed most the 2010 season due to a back injury before returning for the last five games.

Soccer fans everywhere have been watching the STAFF COLUMN magic of the 2011 FIFA Women’s World Cup unTobi Neidy fold in Germany. It hasn’t been any different for Oklahoma’s soccer team. “I haven’t watched the World Cup with my teammates, but I’ve been watching it,” junior forward Dria Hampton said. “Marta (Brazil) is hands down my favorite player because I just appreciate the way she plays the game.” Hampton’s admiration for the quick-scoring Marta comes from her enjoyment of seeing creative scoring. “[Brazil and Germany] are very much possession-oriented teams with your few special players that bring that spark to the game,” Hampton said. “I enjoy watching them because their creativity on the ball in the attacking third is unbelievable.” But the worldwide event isn’t just an excuse to spend time on the couch — the Sooners also are using the televised games as a study guide for their upcoming season. “You’re getting to watch the best players in the world and watch what they do to make their team successful,” junior forward Caitlin Mooney said. “It’s fun to watch the different teams and different styles and try to figure out what you would do in each scenario to be successful.” Mooney said her favorite player right now is Hope Solo since the USA goalkeeper is a strong leader on the team. “She has continuously willed the USA to win games and has done her part to step up,” Mooney said. OU coach Nicole Nelson is glad her team is taking this summer’s opportunity. “It’s a great chance for them to watch professionals in their own sport do what they do best,” Nelson said. “It’s great for the developmental part of the game. And there‘s just something about the never-give-up attitudes in the World Cup that make it so exciting to watch.” More importantly, the World Cup is getting the Sooners in the mood to reunite as a team and go after their tough, regular-season schedule. “I’ve been able to watch six or seven games so far, and it gets me really excited about the next few months to be playing as a team again,” senior defender Michelle Alexander said. — Tobi Neidy, public relations senior

Instructions: Fill in the grid so that every row, every column and every 3x3 box contains the digits 1 through 9. That means that no number is repeated in any row, column or box.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) -Hold off on making any important agreements with another. The aspects are such that, although people mean well, it isnĂ­t likely they would stand the test of time.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -Underestimating the competition is always a mistake. Thus, regardless of how inept you think someone is, take him or her seriously. This person might know something to which youĂ­re not privy.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- People in general tend to want to shift their burdens onto someone else, so if anybody thinks youĂ­re an easy mark, this person will try to dump his or her work in your lap. DonĂ­t be had.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- Think twice before absentmindedly being unrealistically generous to someone who doesnĂ­t deserve it. ThereĂ­s a good chance that on impulse youĂ­ll give away something youĂ­ll regret.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Depending too heavily on Lady Luck instead of your own abilities will guarantee you to fail at whatever it is youĂ­re trying to pull off. Avoid getting involved in anything chancy.

PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- If you have a choice, avoid any gathering where someone who makes you feel uncomfortable is likely to be in attendance. You wonĂ­t have any fun being miserable.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -DonĂ­t be unduly awed by titles or trappings. Just because someone has a title doesnĂ­t necessary make him or her bigger than life. It only defines the job the person is assigned to do. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- For the sake of peace, donĂ­t let yourself be drawn into a debate with someone who loves to argue. Once this person gets started, you wonĂ­t be able to turn him or her off. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- ItĂ­s wise to abide by your instincts and perceptions about participating in any kind of financial debate with someone who always thinks he or she is right. ItĂ­ll be a lost cause.

ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- It would be best not to depend on another to do something for you that you know the person really doesnĂ­t want to do. She or he will either do a bad job or totally let you down. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- DonĂ­t try to impose your views on someone who you know will be unreceptive to what you have to say. All youĂ­ll accomplish is making this person stand even firmer in his or her beliefs. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -The handling of your resources isnĂ­t likely to be your strong suit today, so it behooves you to be as prudent as you can. Additionally, it would be wise not to offer any financial advice.

The Daily’s Sorting Hat

Potter fans await final movie camped out in front of theater

The Sorting Hat ceremony is only one of the most epic elements of your entrance into Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. It determines not only what kind of person you will become but also the kind of people you will spend the next seven years of your life with. As Draco Malfoy so curtly informed us in the first book, “You don’t want to go making friends with the wrong sort.” Somehow I’m not sure Draco was as great a judge of character as he thought he was. Since, unfortunately, OU does not have a sorting hat of its own, here are some fool-proof signs to look for when determining which house your friends — and, more importantly, yourself — belong in. — Lindsey Ruta/The Daily

Poor Hufflepuff. It arguably gets the least amount of attention of the houses in the series, leaving its traits very vague. Hufflepuff is considered by many to be the eclectic gathering of leftover students who did not have a place in the other three houses. On the bright side, the house is well-intentioned and always dependable. So if you have a friend who seems a little out of place but is always there for you, give some love to the Hufflepuff House.

Do you have that brainy friend who reminds you of elementary school, back when you felt like you had to prove yourself to the teacher? They somehow manage to do every single piece of homework, always answer questions in class and never have time to socialize. Well, they might be a Ravenclaw (we did always wonder if Hermione wasn’t secretly a Ravenclaw). Don’t get too frustrated by your lackluster academic standing compared to them — on the flip side, you always have a free tutor.

So we all have those friends we have a good time with but can’t really trust further than we can throw them, so to speak. They’re probably a Slytherin. Not stereotyping Slytherins, but they are very cunning, and even though they aren’t all Death Eaters (supposedly), they are still fierce enough to make you a little on edge. So if you have that super confident friend who always has to be the center of attention, ask them if they have any tattoos… that move.

And lastly, the house everyone seems to want to be a part of (I wonder why), Gryffindor. Gryffindors are loyal, courageous and maybe a little reckless at times, but always for the right reasons. So if you have that friend you know would defend you in a bar fight at OU-Texas even if you were out numbered by Longhorns 20-to-2, you know you’ve found yourself a true Gryffindor.

Beloved characters cast their last spells for an adoring audience BRENDAN COUGHLIN The Oklahoma Daily

People heading to the Warren Theatre in Moore Wednesday may have seen several very out-of-place tents lining the sidewalk leading up to the theater. These tents were not the tents of wayward travelers who got lost looking for a campground — these were the tents of Harry Potter fans preparing to be the first ones into the theater to see the eighth Harry Potter movie premiere at 12:01 a.m. Friday. Ashley Jones and S av a n n a h Ha r r i s h av e braved the summer temperatures since Tuesday in order to be first in line for the final movie. They have everything necessary to survive several days in a tent. Several fans stay positioned at key hot spots in the tent to circulate air. Their tent also contains an air mattress, various pieces of inflatable furniture and a television. “I’m really sad this is the last movie. Harry Potter is coming to an end, and I’ve grown up with it for so long, but Harry Potter will always be there,” Harris said. This week marks the end of a magical saga that began in 1997 with the publication of a book that captured the imaginations of people around the world.


Harry Potter fans camp out Wednesday for the premiere of the last movie in the series. The Warren Theatre will show all the films leading up to the finale, which opens at midnight. Tonight at midnight, the final installment of the Harry Potter movie franchise will be released in theaters worldwide, finalizing a relationship with characters a generation of people have grown up with. Current college students have grown up with Harry Potter and Co. The cast of the franchise is made up of college-aged actors, and members of this mini-generation have seen and grown

up with them from scrawny 11-year-olds to full maturity (oh hey, Emma Watson). “The characters go through the same stages that you do from 11 to 17 years old,” Jones said “You can really relate to the things they are going through.” Elementary education senior Kasey Colhmia’s relationship with Harry goes back thirteen years to when she began reading Harry Potter as a third-grade

student. She was 11 years old when the first movie came out in 2001 and has spent the last few years embracing the Harry Potter obsession. “Growing up with the series really prolonged the excitement. It wasn’t as quick as it would be if you just read them all together,” Kasey said. READ THE FULL STORY ON OUDAILY.COM
