Sweeping down the plains, and powering a university UCO makes switch to wind power, officials expect to save thousands by Heather Warlick Staff Writer

When the wind comes sweeping down the plains, UCO will save thousands of dollars because of the April I switch from traditional fossil fuels to a more environmentally friendly source of power: wind. UCO is the first university in the state to be 100 percent powered by wind, and UCO Executive Vice President Steve Kreidler said he expects $260,000 in savings this year alone. "With the current cost of fuel, the money we can save, and the fact that we're helping to protect Oklahoma's environment, we just think it's the right thing to do," Kreidler said. UCO uses about 27 million kilowatt hours per year and as the price of natural gas continues to rise. Wind is an abundant source of inexpensive energy in

Oklahoma, said Don Powers, manager of compliance for the UCO Office of Legal Counsel. The wind power comes from a wind farm near Woodward that has 39 1.5 megawatt turbine windmills. A single 1.5 MW turbine windmill can provide continuous power for about 400 homes, according to the American Wind Energy Association. It reports that Oklahoma ranks fifth in the country for states with the most wind energy installed. Wind farms are a booming industry. OG&E's Web site boasts growth rates in excess of 30 percent per year. "Not only is this good for the environment, we are also saving Oklahoma taxpayers' money," Kreidler said. UCO began the initiative toward wind energy in October 2004, when it shifted five percent of its power use to wind energy. The goal was 50 per-

cent, but as fuel prices went up and wind power prices went down, the decision was made to use wind for all UCO's electricity. "We are looking at every opportunity that we can to reduce our cost, improve our performance and promote a clean environment," Powers said. UCO has made many energy saving changes over the last few years including installing new, more efficient heating and air conditioning systems, replacing inefficient toilets with water saving ones and eliminating steam and gas burning boilers. These changes were part of an $8.9 million 20-year contract with Johnson Controls that UCO entered into in 2002 to save on energy costs. Heather Warlick can be reached at hwarlickŠthevistaonlinacom.

Bioterrorism drill at UCO to test emergency responders by Heather Warlick Staff Writer

by Vista photographer Travis Marak

A wind farm near Weatherford is seen April 17, similar to the farm in Woodward that will supply UCO with all its electricity.

A simulated anthrax attack will be the scenario for a mass immunization drill 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on April 26 at UCO's Hamilton Field House. "Students will not only learn what to do in a real event," said Don Powers, director of the UCO Disaster Resistant University program, "they will be helping fine-tune the system so they will be protected." In the event of a bioterrorism attack, bird flu outbreak or other medical epidemic, local emergency responders must be prepared to help thousands of people who need immunizations, antidotes and treatments. The drill will be a test of the state and county health depaitments' ability to distribute medicine to the public in such an event. UCO will be a Mass Immunization Point of Distribution, which means it will work with the health departments to distribute medications during emergencies.

"We thought we could serve the community well by being a location where they and their families can be taken care of," Powers said. Local first responders like fire and police departments will participate in the twohour drill at three different locations: UCO, Oklahoma City Community College and Carl Albert High School in Midwest City. Medical personnel from the UCO Student Health Center and students from the UCO School of Nursing will be specially trained and certified to administer treatment in the event of an attack or epidemic. "We will be the core, and they will bring in trained professionals from the area to supplement our staff," said Cayt Walls, administrative assistant to the director of student health at UCO. In the event of a real emergency, there would be at least eight distribution points in the metro area, and the goal would be for

SNL comedian Seth Meyers brings comedy to campus by Nathan Winfrey Senior Staff Writer

Actor and "Saturday Night Live" cast member Seth Meyers performed standup comedy in Hamilton Field House April 18. Meyers followed opening band Dreams from Jettison, and was careful to study up on UCO trivia while preparing for his routine, working into his monologue the university's founding, including jokes about the spelling of "broncho." He kept the crowd laughing constantly, and seemed to be improvising it as he went along, gleaning jokes and segues to anecdotes from frequent discussions with the audience, making nostalgic jabs

at college life and impersonating celebrities such as Matthew McConaughey and Owen Wilson. Meyers became a full-time "SNL" cast member in 2003 after being featured on the weekly, live sketch comedy show for years before that. "The first few shows were crazy," he said, sitting in a T-shirt and jeans on a couch in the women's locker room that doubled as his green room. Showers lined the wall behind him. He said he'd never been to Oklahoma before, "but my dad did basic training here and one time a buffalo ran into his car." "That's the best thing about doing college gigs; you get to see a lot of towns," Meyers said. He said he's vis-

ited between 10 and 20 colleges. "It's not stressful at all," he said. "You get used to traveling." Meyers said he watched "SNL" growing up, long before he got on the show. "I can't imagine a job being more stressful," he said. "It's a great job for procrastinators. There's no time to do anything but work." He said the cast members meet the host for each week's show on Monday, write the entire show on Tuesday, read through each script and pick the best 12 on Wednesday, and on Thursday and Friday they rehearse. As if he weren't busy enough,

New medica passport simplifies records

Sorting through file cabinets, three-ring binders, and miscellaneous papers scattered throughout your dorm room is probably somewhere on a lengthy weekend projects list as the semester draws to a close. Between those composition notebooks and archive folders, your medical records may be littered among the debris. Immunization charts, lab results, old bill statements, prescriptions, and insurance information is likely to form part of the clutter that you've been planning to organize. In a nationwide effort to simplify patients' medical records, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services has implemented its Health Passport for Life con-

sumer statistics program. Sponsored by the government agency's Division of Transplantation, the slim wallet-sized booklet provides ample writing room to better document personal care data. Students with limited space can transfer much of their current paper trail into fill-inthe-blank style report forms that include designated pages for emergency contacts, family health history, previous surgeries, booster shot reminders, allergies, current medications and dates of last procedural screenings. Also included is an Organ/ Tissue Donor Card specifying personal preference in regard to their ultimate use in transplants and facts about the process to aid your decision. According to the Coalition on Donation, some 90,000 patients are in need of anatomical transplants that could potentially save their lives. Recipients most commonly suffer from heart disease, diabetes or hepatitis, although congenital defects are

also among the major conditions remedied with the use of another viable human organ in place of their own failing one. An average 6,500 candidates on the U.S. Transplant Waiting List pass away before an organ becomes available due to lack of accessibility or a suitable match. A single donor can improve quality of life for as many as 50 individuals with the use of organs like the heart, kidneys, pancreas, lungs, liver and intestines, as well as tissues including the epidermis, corneas, heart valves, bone marrow, peripheral stem cells and blood. Despite public efforts to eschew popular myths, fear and confusion continue to instill doubt that makes people hesitant to register as donors. Contrary to popular opinion, declaring yourself a donor will not negatively affect the quality of hospital-based medical care you are entitled to receive, and you won't be allowed to die for the harvesting of your organs. Surviving family members are never charged for the process of donating a relative's organs. The concept of handing one's body over to a medical team to be purposefully dissected has led many to shy away from donation altogether, but the donor card allows you to choose which may be selected. Regardless of what organs are used, donation does not

imply a closed-casket funeral or aesthetic disfigurement of any kind. While the topic generally calls to mind such morbid topics as accidental death and autopsies, more donors are actually living than deceased. Segments of lungs, livers, and kidneys are often used instead of the whole organ, usually among family members. Diverse ethnic groups are particularly encouraged to consider organ donation, as favorable outcomes are most likely between two people of similar genetic characteristics. Carrying a donor card and indicating status on your driver's license are two positive methods of affirming your choice, but the real key to having your requests fulfilled is through communication with friends and family. You should state respective wishes to the people closest to you who may be asked to sign donation release forms. Planning is always a logical step towards better health, and having paper work in order can better prepare you for that next hospital visit, whether an emergency or a routine checkup. To obtain your free Health Passport and an informative DVD about organ donation, visit or call 1-888-ASK-HRSA.

Indian grad students participate in intern program at UCO by Alex Gambill Staff Writer

Six students from India came to UCO at the beginning of April to participate in a five-week internship program in the College of Business Administration. The program is called "twinning." Indian students study or intern in America and get credit that is put toward their degree in India. UCO plans on having the same program available for American students to study in India, said Dr. S. Narasinga Rao, UCO dean of the Joe C. Jackson College of Graduate Studies and Research. The students attend St. Joseph's College of Business Administration in Bangalore, a city in southern India. The city is also known as the Silicon Valley of the East. This is the first time for the students to come to the United States. "They've all completed their first year (of graduate school) and before they get into their second year, they must do an internship," Rao said. The students are living in Central Plaza until May 5, when they travel back to Bangalore. "President Webb signed a memorandum of understanding with St. Joseph's College last year in March," Rao said. Rao went to India in November to help with the selection process. Dr. K. J. Tullis, Chair of the UCO Depai tinent of Business Management, went to St. Joseph's in February 2005 and Dr. Jere Roberson, history professor and president of UCO faculty senate, went in January

2006. "They had a selection process in Bangalore. All those that were interested were encouraged to apply. Then they had an external review committee that interviewed," Rao said. Thirty-seven students applied but only six were selected. Bhavana Shekar and Devdatta Bhatfaeheryya are working with Dr. Kelly Moyers, assistant professor of business management, on a comparative study of Indian and U.S. public agencies. Caroline Jean Misquith and Dr. Randal Ice, chair of business finance, are working on a project to use an international coin substitution in automated devices.

'Institute of Hope' offers Liberal Arts scholarships by Alex Gambill Staff Writer

UCO's new Institute of Hope will offer scholarships for liberal arts students and sponsor events to educate the public about poverty, abuse and prejudice. "The institute also alleviates the effects of poverty, abuse and prejudice," said Dr. Pamela Washington, dean of the UCO

COMEDY from page 1 Meyers also does a free improvised comedy show in New York every Sunday night with the other cast members from Chicago. "It's unbelievably thrilling," he said. "Everybody's friends with everybody." Meyers said each host brings something different to the show, which allows for different sketches, and some members are nervous when they come on. He said Alec Baldwin is his favorite host, "because he has a filthy sense of humor." Meyers said he still gets star struck sometimes. "There are a few people that do it," he said, like Pearl Jam, Bruce Springsteen and Steve Martin. Meyers is known for his impersonations, which include 2004 presidential hopeful John Kerry and NBC newsman Brian Williams. He said Williams sends him notes all the time, jokingly threatening Meyers with bodily harm.

College of Liberal Arts. "The institute offers scholarship money for liberal arts majors for students who cannot qualify for financial aid." Three sociology alumnae, Laura Mitchell, Tina Dobson and Beverly Coon, graduates of 2005, created and fund the institute. "For the first time in the history of this department we

decide we couldn't just give it [an award] to just one of them so we gave a plaque and recognition to all three," said Dr. David Ford, chair of the UCO Department of Sociology and Criminal Justice. "All three are now attending their second semester at the University of Oklahoma and are getting their master's in social work." For example, Washington

Meyers said the notes say things like, "If this note can find you, so can I." "You try to take their one feature and exaggerate it," he said. "I learn a lot from watching Darrell Hammond." Hammond, another "SNL" cast member, is perhaps most famous for his impersonations of Sean Connery and former president Bill Clinton. Meyers said his favorite sketch is one where he and Amy Poehler play a couple that should be divorced. "We play a married couple that stays married because we don't want the other one to find happiness," he said. Before he started on "SNL," Meyers was doing improvised comedy in Chicago when he saw an audition notice for "Boom Chicago," an improvisational theater in Amsterdam. Meyers got the job and moved to the Netherlands. "They chose 'boom' because no matter what language you have, it means something fun, although 'boom' in Dutch means 'tree,'" he said. Now, he does about 20 "SNL" shows a year, and stars with Hugh Grant and Dennis Quaid in "American Dreamz,"

which opens April 21. "I play Mandy Moore's agent," Meyers said. "Hopefully it will be really good." He's also writing a movie called "Key Party," which he will star in, and he said it will use some of the same humor that he uses for "The Couple That Should Be Divorced." "It's about a couple that goes to a swingers party and how it ruins their marriage," Meyers said. "I find nothing more entertaining than people in relationships that don't like each other." "I thought Seth Meyers was pretty funny," said Kellie Swagerty an art education sophomore who's lizard, Archie, was the butt of some of Meyer's jokes. "His improv was above par for your typical 'Saturday Night Live' skit of 'Comedy Central Presents.' "I think he performed a great show, he knew how to work a college audience," said Rick Foresee, theater sophomore. "It was an exciting event."

said, "If students can't get their tax forms filled out because their parents have been abusive to them, and they no longer want contact with that parent," then they can qualify for a scholarship. "There might also be cases where a student might receive financial aid, but it's not enough to meet their needs. The scholarship fund would provide money

for books," Washington said. She said students can pick up an application form at the financial aid office on the first floor of the Nigh University Center. They will also have to provide a transcript and get a letter from Drew Duke, director of Student Financial Services, in the financial aid office explaining their situation. The institute sponsored a

"I was in the sorority when I was an undergrad," she said. Each year, the national sororities hold an election to select the new recipient, and McNeiland won the national award for Sigma Kappa, she said. "Panhellenic is the association that comprises all of the national sororities," McNeiland said. "It's basically the organization that umbrellas all of our sororities." "Her enthusiasm and spirit for life is inspiring to all those around her, and she is definitely deserving of this honor and I am proud to be her sister," said Daina Dill, sociology senior and Sigma Kappa member.

Students and the public will play the roles of the victims of an anthrax attack at three malls, including Quail Springs. In the drill, they will be administered doses of medicine for themselves and up to nine family members. "You can plan all you want to but until you actually test something, you don't know how it's going to work," Powers said. He said the drill will only take about 10 minutes of students' time. Powers said drill participants should enter UCO from Danforth Road, turning south on Chowning Avenue to University Drive. They will then be directed to park in the football stadium parking lot. "It's important that people who come to participate don't get into the mainstream of student traffic," Powers said. "If students are in classes that day, they can walk over to Hamilton Field House." As an incentive for student involvement, the first 200 people to participate each hour will be given a coupon for a free fountain drink at the Nigh University Center.

NEW YORK (AP) _ The staffs of The Times-Picayune of New Orleans and The Sun Herald of south Mississippi captured Pulitzer Prizes for public service on April 17 for chronicling the catastrophic aftermath of Hurricane Katrina despite life-changing damage to their own homes and workplaces. Tears flowed rather than champagne in the TimesPicayune newsroom, which the staff had to evacuate just eight months earlier for about six weeks. At The Sun Herald, staff members cheered and fought back tears. The Sun Herald won for its "valorous and comprehensive coverage ... providing a lifeline for devastated readers" and The Times-Picayune for its "heroic, multi-faceted coverage" to "serve an inundated city even after evacuation of the newspaper plant," the Pulitzer citation said. The Washington Post won four Pulitzers, The New York Times three and The TimesPicayune and the Rocky Mountain News each won two. In the arts categories, the fiction prize went to "March," Geraldine Brooks' novel imagining the life of the father in Louisa May Alcott's "Little Women," and the general nonfiction prize went to Caroline Elkins for "Imperial Reckoning: The Untold Story of Britain's Gulag in Kenya." The Pulitzer

board declined to award a prize for drama. The Times-Picayune staff was awarded a second Pulitzer, for breaking news, for Katrina, and The Dallas Morning News was honored "for its vivid photographs depicting the chaos and pain" of the disaster. Like their communities, The Sun Herald and The TimesPicayune took a beating from Katrina. Their buildings were damaged, advertisers and subscribers were displaced, and circulation dropped. The Times-Picayune evacuated about 240 employees in the back of newspaper delivery trucks as water from a levee breach rose around its plant. Many staffers saw the disaster unfold in their own neighborhoods. The newsroom erupted in applause at the news of the Pulitzers, but there was no champagne. "It was a national tragedy," said Peter Kovacs, the TimesPicayune's managing editor for news. "It would not be appropriate to have champagne because of the nature of the event." As reporters quietly sobbed, Editor in Chief Jim Amoss stood on a table and said: "As our city was being ravaged and our citizens were dying ... as all these things happened, we came together as a team and fulfilled a mission that is sacred to us."

Point/Counterpoint The race for the NBA's most valuable player award features the deepest pool of potential candidates in years. Vista editor in chief Matt Cauthron and sports writer Teddy Burch have differing opinions on whose mantel should be cleared for the extra hardware.

Who deserves the NBA MVP award? D



soon (before the LeBron/Wade Era really heats up), Kobe too will be in danger of getting the shaft. But this time, unlike in Isiah's case, there would be no justification-no excuse. But let's back up for a second. Don't think I'm suggesting we just hand Kobe the trophy because history deserves for it to happen. I don't propose turning the MVP into a lifetime achievement award. Kobe has definitely had an MVP year. Not only does he lead the NBA in scoring, he'll be only the fifth player ever to average more than 35 points per game over a season. He has singlehandedly carried an absolutely atrocious Lakers team into the playoffs. And unlike the other front-runners, he's a reliable defender—a five-time NBA AllDefense selection, compared to a combined zero for Nash and LeBron. And let's not forget, the man scored 81 points in a game this season, the second-highest single-game total ever. Sure, a single game doesn't make an MVP, but it does prove one thing: Kobe is a once-in-alifetime kind of player. Others can't do what he does. He's the only guard since Jordan who can accurately be described as "completely unstoppable." Call me crazy, but I think a player like that deserves his rightful place in history. I think it's high time Kobe got his due.

by Matt Cauthron Editor in Chief

Every NBA fan has a unique set of criteria for determining the league's most valuable player. Some value statistics above all. Some say a team's record is most important. Many try to imagine what a team would be like without a certain player. These are all valid measuring sticks, and they've served the actual MVP voters well in the past. But at some point, in picking the MVP, voters should take a step back and survey the bigger picture. At some point, history must be considered. When a special player comes along, a player like no other before him, it's a phenomenon that must be recognized. The MVP award should be more than an individual honor; it should be a way to preserve and pass on the history of the league and its greatest players. If I were to rank the 10 best players since I was a kid, it would look something like this: Jordan, Magic, Bird, Isiah, Shaq, Hakeem, Duncan, Barkley, Kobe and Iverson. That's the list. Those are the 10 best basketball players I've ever seen. The only two of those without an MVP award are Isiah and Kobe. And if you think about it, the only reason Isiah never won is that he got unlucky. During his prime ('83-'92), here are the winners of the MVP, in order: Bird, Bird, Bird, Magic, Jordan, Magic, Magic, Jordan and Jordan. Poor Isiah, possibly the best pure point guard ever, the leader of a two-time championship team and winner of the NBA Finals MVP, shared his prime with the three best allaround perimeter players ever. Sadly, if the MVP voters don't do something about it

The NBA season is ending and some of you think there is still a race for the league MVP. This race was over long ago. It seems that most everyone has settled on Lebron James or Kobe Bryant. Respectful choices, each have contributed in big

ways to the success of their teams. Both have had plenty of the limelight. One seems to be easy to pull for while the other seems to be quite easy to pull against. In days of big money, very little loyalty and a dress code, the NBA has an MVP, and he is a repeat from a season ago. Last year Steve Nash returned to the Suns were he was drafted No. 15 overall in 1996. He had an impressive year, led the Suns to a 60-15 season and won the MVP. This season the Suns are again going to win the Pacific Division in the Western Conference and Nash is the reason why. So why is Nash going to win the award again? Nash ranks number one in the NBA in assists per game at 10.4. He ranks number one in the league in free-throw percentage at .921. Nash is also ranked first in the NBA with 814 assists on the season. Consider this season versus last year's award-winning year. Nash has a higher field goal percentage (.510 to .502), he is causing more turnovers per game (3.5 to 3.3), he is averaging more defensive rebounds per game (3.6 to 2.6) and, most importantly, he is averaging 19 points per game to last year's 15.5. These are the highest averages in each category Nash has had in his career. The Phoenix Suns are playing better, and they could possibly be seeded second in the Western Conference Playoffs. Shawn Marion, Tim Thomas and Raja Bell are all enjoying the best seasons of their careers, due in large part to Nash's court awareness. He may not win the award and if he doesn't, this should be a crime. But then again, a little crime in the NBA isn't anything anybody is going to get too excited about.

ECU's attempt at a rally was cut short when Neal was struck out looking on a Morgan pitch. "The hardest part about the second half of the season is to have plenty of healthy arms in the pitching rotation," Wendell said. "After this point in the season, bodies begin to break down and injuries can pile up. We have been fortunate to this point." „1?-/ In the second victory, Marcus Lara pitched a solid six and one-third innings allowing only eight hits and four runs. Lara, junior from Wichita, continued

a perfect winning percentage on the season and improved to 3-0 overall. The Bronchos were led by Sullivan's one-run, two-hit, and three-RBI performance. His homerun in the fourth inning sparked a four-run, six-hit inning which saw the Bronchos Open up a 5-2 lead. A three-run seventh inning gave the Bronchos an 8-2 lead that proved to be enough to win the game. The Tigers scored two runs in the bottom of the seventh, but Chris Elam pitched a zero-hit, zero-run two-thirds inning to close out the Tigers and record his first save on the season.
