Summer flood damage to Gould Hall repaired No classes disrupted due to late-July flood, repairs cost university about $85k COURTNEY WOLTJEN Campus Reporter

Gould Hall is good as new after summer rains flooded the building’s basement with up to 3 inches of standing water, costing the university approximately $85,000 to clear and repair water damage. After heavy rain caused the College of Architecture’s building to flood on July 19, repairs performed by OU’s Facilities Management and Flintco Construction lasted less than a week and ended up costing about $85,000, although all the invoices are not in yet, said Facilities Management director Brian Ellis. To clear the water, hundreds of humidifiers were brought

into the basement, as well as fans and vacuums, said College of Architecture dean Richard Ryan. Due to water soaking through the walls as far as the insulation, extensive repairs had to also be made to the walls of the basement. “It took about four days of 200-plus humidifiers and vacuuming and everything to get what I would call the main part of the moisture out of there,” Ryan said. “ They had fans going everywhere. I mean it was a monstrous effort.” The flood is believed to be caused by the heavy rain flooding nearby streets with drainage issues, Ryan said. He said he hopes nearby construction on the east side of the Van Fleet Oval will address the capacity issue for the storm sewers to ensure no flooding will occur in the future. No classes were disrupted due to the damages, Ryan said.

lawsuit: Senior sues for being denied records Continued from page 1

Today around campus An orientation for Fulbright students will kick off at 9 a.m. in Zarrow Hall, Room 145. Shenandoah Sampson and Suzette Grillot will open the weeklong event with a presentation. A musical performance by Ivan Duvet on piano will be held beginning at noon for Mid Day Music in Oklahoma Memorial Union’s food court.

Wednesday, august 28 A meeting at the Gaylord Family Oklahoma Memorial Stadium will take place at 9:30 a.m. for newly arrived Fulbright students. The meeting is one of many events during Fulbright Gateway Orientation week, which runs through Aug. 30. A competition of minute-to-win-it challenges will be held from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. in the Oklahoma Memorial Union food court.

Thursday, August 29 A contest to guess the outcome of the first Sooner football game against the University of Louisiana will take place from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. in Oklahoma Memorial Union’s food court. Those with the closest score can win a prize at the end of the season. A free concert by Jeffery Weaver on piano will be held from noon to 1 p.m. for Mid Day Music in the Oklahoma Memorial Union’s food court. A meeting for international Fulbright students will take place at 5 p.m. at the Sam Noble Museum of Natural History to commemorate Fulbright Gateway Orientation week. Participants will experience traditional Native American culture and heritage through music, dance and food.

The judge presiding over the hearing, Lori Walkley, decided to dismiss the petition, saying Stipek should have filed the suit against OU as whole and not Boren or McCombs. Stipek filed the lawsuit against Boren and McCombs after his and other student journalists’ request for parking citation records was denied, saying those records were protected under the Federal Educational Rights and Privacy Act, or FERPA. FERPA is a federal law meant to protect students’ educational records like transcripts or demographic information. Shawnae Robey, council for the defense, said it was clear the suit was about the university since neither Boren nor McCombs work in the Open Records Office. After the decision was announced, Stipek said he was still feeling optimistic about his case and will be back in court in around 30 days after he re-files the petition, even though he thinks the defense’s motion to dismiss was based on a technicality. “I think it’s splitting hairs,” Stipek said.

OU student journalist Joey Stipek and his attorney Nick Harrison pass attorney Shawnae Robey as they exit Judge Lori Walkley’s courtroom, Monday in the Cleveland County Courthouse. Robey was defense council in Stipek’s open records case against OU President David Boren and OU’s former Open Records Office Director for the withholding of parking citation records.

Stipek plans to re-file his petition as soon as possible, this time naming OU instead of Boren and McCombs, he said. “The law’s on our side. It doesn’t matter whose name on it,” Stipek said. Once the petition is refiled, a court will decide whether Stipek is entitled

under Oklahoma’s Open Records act to receive the parking citation records, Stipek’s lawyer Nick Harrison said. Stipek filed the lawsuit May 10, after failing to receive the parking citation records he requested during the spring 2013 semester for an article he planned to write

for the Daily about preferential treatment for students and parking tickets. He took the issue to court to inspire other journalists to follow up on open records and information, Stipek said. “I didn’t file it for attention or anything. I filed it to inspire journalism students,” he said.

Police department provides online map of Norman crime rates for public An online crime map has been compiled to keep track of the different crimes that take place in Norman, from theft to domestic abuses. The online crime map of Norman, created by the Norman Police Department and BAIR Analytics Inc, is a project months in the making, said Captain Tom Easley, Norman Police Department spokesman. Norman Police Department receives calls each year from students, parents, and prospective residents who all want to know about crime rates in Norman, Easley said. This map eliminates the need to swamp the police department with calls since all of the answers would be online, Easley said. While the website is relatively new, it has around a year’s worth of data available, with new data being added daily, Easley said. Max Janerka Campus Reporter

Students walk into Couch Tower after a small fire erupted on the third floor Sunday.

Grease fire in Couch Center forces students to evacuate Sunday night The fire forcing Couch Center residents to evacuate on Sunday afternoon was due to a grease fire igniting in the third floor kitchen area, said Amy Buchanan, assistant director for OU Housing and Food. Smoke from hot grease activated the smoke detector, alerting Couch residents on the second through fifth floors, Buchanan said. No one was allowed to reenter until the “all clear” was announced, she said. Building residents can be cited by police or ticketed by the fire marshal if they do not comply when alarms sound, Buchanan said. Following the incident, employees of Facilities Management made sure the device on the stovetop where the fire started was in working condition, Buchanan said. The device deactivates a burner when there has been no activity or motion at the stove for three minutes, she said. Molly Evans Assistant Campus Editor

King’s legacy is to keep marching. There are still people who are not as free as they should be. We cannot sing those famous words: “Free at last, free at last. Thank God almighty we are free at last.” We are far from where we need to be. The fervor in 1963 for change sparked a fire. The torch has now been passed onto us. The dream begins with you, but it can also end with you. Learn from Dr. King and the many others who have influenced positive evolution and growth in our country. When they saw wrongdoing, King and other activists stood up and peacefully projected an encouraging representation of fairness. In his speech, he implored the nation to behave in a peaceful manner. We stand up to defend the dream. The most powerful thing leaders of our past have done is speak. Generals lead their men into battle with their words and their actions. A leader of men is the person loud enough to be heard from hilltop to hilltop. Like King, the message we send is not one of violence. We send a message of hope, truth and readiness. We are sitting in classes and having lunch with the future leaders of the world, but let us not wait until later to have our voices

be heard when we can be heard now. People remember words that are backed up with reason, truth and passion. We serve as a platform for those words and those ideals. We continue to voice our opinions and support equality for everyone, because it matters. Dr. King has shown us all what speaking up can do, and Wednesday, Obama is going to have the same opportunity that Dr. King once did to be the voice of encouragement for positive change. In a way, Obama will be reliving the dream in present time. While our country is still far from having a unanimous understanding of what equality and freedom means, we continue to make headway and are closer to making King’s dream a reality.

he Olympics is an event meant to bring countries together and foster a sense of unity and hope for a better future for the human race. It has transcended wars and given us some of the most inspiring stories and images of our time. It has been a stage for peace and served as a Cold War battleground by proxy. Now comes the time when the Olympics must once again serve as a statement, this time either for or against the LGBT community. Russia, the host country for the 2014 Olympics in Sochi, has recently passed controversial “gay propaganda” laws, barring any spread of homosexual “propaganda” to children. With most of the western world making landmark leaps forward in their treatment of the LGBT community, Russia and many other parts of the world seem to be almost belligerently turning the clock back. The decision humanity makes about the Olympics in Russia can affect the present course of LGBT and human rights on a global scale. It may not divert progress completely, but it certainly sets the clock back a tick. The Olympic committee has already condemned athletes who would use their time in the spotlight to shine light on the unfairness and bigotry of this law and laws like it. People all over the world are calling for a boycott. So what are we to do? A boycott of the Olympics seems to be a popular opinion, but is that really the right answer? We’ve boycotted the Olympics before, and there was little to no effect on the countries being boycotted. But if the host country isn’t effected by the boycott, who is? The athletes who have trained their entire lives for one shining moment of glory, one chance to prove themselves, a chance that many of them may not have again - those are the true victims of an Olympic boycott. Should we really punish these athletes, some of whom were or are students here at OU?

But if we OPINION COLUMNIST can’t boycott the Olympics, and we can’t stand idly by as Russia tramples on the rights of Charlie Parker its LGBT citcourtney.g.parker-1@ou.edu izens, what can we do? George Takei, former Star Trek star and activist, has suggested that we simply move the Olympics to a more deserving city, but there are pros and cons to this plan, as well. Hosting the Olympics is an expensive endeavor and can take years of planning and preparation before a city is fit to handle the responsibility. A stadium has to either be built or made ready, venues and housing have to be built and security has to be amped-up for the protection of the athletes and the spectators. With the Olympics only about a year and a half away, could a city possibly do what Sochi has been preparing to since they won the bid to host the games? It could be as simple as picking a city that’s already hosted the games, equipped with an area to host them and with prior experience organizing, but Olympic facilities have a long history of being torn down, abandoned, or converted for other uses. The Olympics have been moved successfully before but never this late in the game. Is it possible? Is it even probable? Whatever decision is made, it will show us exactly where LGBT politics stand on a global scale and whether or not an event such as the Olympics is ready to become a platform for equality. In many ways, this decision will be a sort of barometer, gauging how much pressure the LGBT community and its allies have to exert on global politics.

The second half of the football season preview looking at OU’s newest coaches and the team’s toughest tests this season.

SOCCER

Sooners to debut fresh team this season After coach’s first year with OU, the soccer team looks to improve this season

With 15 new faces on the plane, the Sooners flew to Knoxville, Tenn. this weekend for a pair of games to start the 2013 campaign. Friday night, OU played its first of 11 contests away Ryan Gerbosi from Norman in 2013, losing 3-1 to the Tennessee Lady Sports Reporter Volunteers. Despite earning more chances and taking one Oklahoma soccer returned to the field this weekend bear- more shot (14), the Sooners were only able to put one goal ing little resemblance to the team coach Matt Potter used in past the Lady Vols on a penalty kick by sophomore Devin his first year in Norman.

POTTER’S SECOND SEASON

Potter was hired in December 2011 to turn the soccer program into championship contenders. But, we all know Rome wasn’t built in a day, and neither are championship teams. After his first year in Norman, Potter is feeling more comfortable and settled with the program as the culture of the team begins to change. “Any time there’s a transition from one coaching staff to another, there’s going to be change,” he said. After coming into last season “not in as great of shape,” Potter said the team was playing on its heels and fell into a culture of survival instead of learning. Now, Potter said the players are physically in a better place, which showed itself in the possession game this preseason. Potter’s leadership and training will be important for a team that needs guidance and experience more than anything.

GOALIE CONTROVERSY

Sunday, freshman Madison Saliba scored two goals in under two minutes as a first-half substitute while the Sooners defense allowed Kennesaw State only a few looks at net, giving OU a 2-0 victory. After a 1-1 start, there are still more questions than answers for the Sooners on the pitch. Potter’s squad has plenty of work ahead if OU wants to return to the NCAA tournament for the first time since 2010. Here are five things Sooner fans should watch this season:

Part of Potter’s rebuild came to fruition this season as 15 new Sooners are on the roster to start 2013. Of the 15 new players, 12 are true freshman ready to take the college field. While the new players have plenty to learn and many will be heavily relied on, they are handling the situation well thanks to the veterans. “A lot of the credit goes to the returning players,” Potter said. “They’ve embraced [the freshman] and taken them under their wing from the get-go.” With the help of the older players, newcomers like junior college transfer forward Daisy Cardona have been able to mesh. “I think our team chemistry has been better than other teams I’ve been on,” Cardona said.

Well, technically they could finish worse than their projection, but the expectations are quite low for this Sooners team. The Big 12 coaches projected Oklahoma to finish eighth out of nine teams in 2013, finishing just ahead of Iowa State in the poll. West Virginia is the favorite to win the conference, receiving seven first-place votes. Texas Tech is slated second, earning two top votes. With such a high turnover, there is no doubt the level of uncertainty is great while expectations are low for OU. Playing with a chip on their shoulder could help a young, scrappy team upset some of the favorites in the conference.

In the first two games in Tennessee, the Sooners used two different goalkeepers and earned two different results. Redshirt freshman Kassadie Stade started in the box for the Sooners Friday against Tennessee, allowing three goals while saving one. Sunday, freshman Miranda Larkin got the start, posting a shutout while facing only three shots. All signs pointed to Stade as the favorite to start during the preseason, but Larkin could see more playing time if she can continue her strong start. Both keepers are relatively untested still, and it may take some time for a clear starter to emerge.

Rector’s new album lacks innovation AT A GLANCE ‘The Walking in Between’ LIFE & ARTS COLUMNIST

Luke Reynolds reynolds.luke5@gmail.com

en Rector has composed yet another lovely, light, easy to sing album that will be sure to please any of his regular fans. But that’s about all he has done. Don’t get me wrong, “The Walking in Between� is a good album. But I’m not so sure Rector remembers that there are four seasons, and music that is about summer is really only good in the summer. Tracks like “Thank God for the Summertime� and “Sailboat� are not going to carry over into the fall and winter months. As a Rector fan, I can’t say I don’t enjoy the album. Let’s just say that I was a little

disappointed to not be experiencing anything new. I would argue that the album is a less jazzy version of “Something Like This.� In fact, several of the tracks are incredibly similar. For example, “Song for the Suburbs� from “Something Like This� is the same theme of “Making Money� in “The Walking in Between.� I mean, we’re talking about how the suburbs will kill us and that making money is silly. Sounds like someone was never a fan of Edmond. There are several good things to say about the album, though. My favorite track is, unsurprisingly, “I Like You.� The simple song takes all the complication of love and makes it a simple little ballad about, well, liking someone. The track “Wildfire� also covers relationships and is perfect for gifting the song to your significant other via iTunes. (Trust me, it’s a small token, but who doesn’t want to be virtually serenaded at the click of a button?)

Ben Rector released “The Walking in Between� on Aug. 20 after previous hits like “Into the Morning.�

There are other songs that take complex issues and make them seem simple in a way only Rector can manage to do. As he so eloquently puts it in the song “Life Keeps Moving On,� Rector claims, “life sucks sometimes/when it hurts so bad that you can’t go on/life keeps moving on.� Which is true. Life does suck sometimes, but it sucks a little less when you can sing about it, and Rector gives that to us. For the more spiritually

based fan, Rector provides tracks such as “If You Can Hear Me� and “Follow You�, which are both subtle enough not to be full on Christian based music, which is nice for his fans that are less religious. As previously mentioned, “Making Money� is a goofy little song that is really quite entertaining. Perhaps Rector was trying to be deep in a very forward way, but the song is a lot better if you just enjoy the music and don’t try

to dissect it. It seems as if Rector is still riding off of his success from “Something Like This� and “Into the Morning.� I would challenge him to try something a little out of the box, but I have a feeling he would reply with something like

“when something isn’t broken, why fix it.� Alas, the new Rector album “The Walking in Between� is worth purchasing. I would like to see more variety from Rector, but that didn’t stop me from buying the album. Luke Reynolds is a University College freshman.
