NFL ICON MADDEN RETIRES
John Madden, a voice known to many, retired from broadcasting this past week. When someone who has been around the sport for sometime thinks football, John Madden may very well be who those people see. Whether it is his video game line and merchandise, or his way of making the game seem more fun with his "captain obvious" remarks mixed with his vast knowledge of the sport, John Madden will be missed.

On his last day in office, former Student Body President John Bobb-Semple signs into legislation two constitutional amendments and the recently passed tobbaco ban legislation in the UCOSA office yesterday. The tobacco legislation outlines a year-long process for cessation programs to help people quit smoking.
UCO has seen a lot of success this year from several of its athletic programs. The men's and women's basketball teams dominated the regular season and entered the National tournaments. The hockey team went to their first ACHA national tournament after a solid regular season. The golf program continues to flourish. The tennis team has hit a streak and many other sports have shown NCAA Division II prowess.
Children chill in Earth Day igloo

Anyone can and should recycle Ryan Croft Senior Reportet;
Excuses are like pennies â€” everyone has a few, some people use them all the time and nobody really wants to get them. For those brimming with excuses about why they do not have the time, knowledge or access to recycle, a group of preschoolers has an answer for you: anyone can recycle and everyone should. Children, ages 3, 4 and 5, helped staff at UCO's Child Studies Center build an earthfriendly igloo out of used milk and water jugs brought from home. Smith said the milk jugs were stockpiled over the period of four weeks, then the glued together to form the almost six-feet tall by four-feet wide structure â€” a noticeable addition to the classroom play
area. The igloo is part of the CSC's contribution to UCO's Earth Day awareness activities and it's "Bronze and Blue = Green initiative, Smith explained. Smith said the children use the igloo as a haven to read or talk quietly with a few friends. Smith said the Child Services instructors often work to make the preschoolers more eco-friendly and many of the kids have learned to reuse their juice cups and turn their snack boxes into sculpture-art. "We kind of talk about recycling all year long," Smith said. "They know the three words; reduce, reuse and recycle." Smith said the children enjoyed building the igloo and being apart of the earthPhoto by Vista Photographer Matt Danner friendly activities. Reese Atkins, 5, sits in an igloo made entirely of "It just shows an example of how [recy- recycled milk cartons in the Child Study Center in the cling] ... crosses all ages," Smith said.

For students with children, the university environment can seem unfocused on the needs of student-parents. Nathan Box, coordinator for Commuter Student Services, said that when it comes to services for non-traditional students, like parents, anything they can offer "would be better than what has been offered in the past, which is
basically nothing." To bring together students with children, the Office of Commuter Student Services started the Non-traditional Student Parents Association, which will meet this Tuesday "to discuss programming that they would like and to provide a place to meet other students like themselves." "We often hear students saying 'I wish there was someone else like me,' " Box said. The association, which Box said will soon become known as "Bronchos with Kids," serves as a programming tool for the UCOMMUTE
Council and the Office of Commuter Student Services. Some of the services and programs offered include; books with information on daycares, things for children to. do in Edmond and the metro, a "making marriage work" seminar and holiday events like trick-or-treat activities and "Brighten the Night." "We want to provide family-friendly events, because we don't want people to have to look for babysitters," Box said.

LITTLETON, Colo. — The "boy in the window" — who fell bloodied and paralyzed into the arms of rescuers during the horrifying Columbine High shooting rampage — is doing just fine. Now 27, Patrick Ireland' has regained mobility with few lingering effects from gunshot wounds to his head and leg a decade ago. He is married and works in the financial services industry. His mantra: "I choose to be a victor rather than a victim." Like Ireland, many survivors of the April 20, 1999, massacre have moved on to careers in education, medicine, ministry, retail. But emotional scars still can trigger anxiety, nightmares and deeply etched recollections of gunfire, blood and bodies. Some have written books; a few travel the world to share their experiences to help victims of violence. "People have been able to have ro years to reconcile what happened and see what fits in their life and who they are," said Kristi Mohrbacher of Littleton, who fled Columbine as the gunfire erupted. "It's kind of a part of who I am today. I think my priorities might be a little bit different if I hadn't had that experience." Just after 11 a.m. on that day, Eric Harris, 18, and Dylan Klebold, 17, stormed the suburban school, killing 12 classmates and a teacher and wounding about two dozen. The massacre ended with the gunmen's ''suicides not quite an hour later. Sean Graves saw the pair loading weapons in a parking lot and thought they were preparing a senior prank with paintball guns. Graves, Lance Kirklin and Daniel Rohrbough were walking toward them for a better look when the gunmen opened fire, killing Rachel Scott and Rohrbough and critically wounding Anne Marie Hochhalter, Graves and Kirklin, among others. In the second-floor library, Ireland was about to finish some homework when he heard pipe bombs exploding in the hallway. Debris fell from the ceiling

and a teacher shouted for students to take cover. Klebold and Harris strode in, shouted for students to stand up, laughing and ridiculing classmates as they sprayed bullets. Ireland was under a table • with Dan Steepleton and Makai Hall when they were shot in the knees. Ireland was shot twice in the head and once in a leg, and lost consciousness. The killers shot out a library window. Graves, lying partially paralyzed on a sidewalk below, worried that they 'would return. He smeared blood from his neck wound on his face and the ground to make it appear he was dead. Harris and Klebold killed 10 students in the library before they left to reload, which gave some survivors a chance to flee. Steepleton and Hall tried to pull Ireland but couldn't move him far before they fled for safety. Shortly before noon, the gunmen returned to the library and committed suicide. Ireland awoke some time later, his vision blurred. With fire alarms sounding and strobe lights flashing, the partially paralyzed teen began to push himself toward the bullet-shattered window. Over the next three hours, he pulled his body along, lost and regained consciousness, then moved again through tables and chairs and past classmates' bodies. He figures he traveled about 50 feet to the window. - thought -how- -.much easier it would be just to give up, stay there and let somebody come get you or whatever would happen to you," Ireland said. "But every time those thoughts came in my mind, I thought about all the people that I would be giving up on. ... It was really the friends and family I would be letting down that kept me going." Ireland pushed himself up to the window and got the attention of SWAT teams below. He doesn't recall flopping over the sill and dropping into the arms of rescuers, the image that grabbed the attention of TV viewers nationwide.

Patrick Ireland, a field director with a financial services company, poses for his picture at his office in Denver, Colo., on, Wednesday, April 15, 2009. Ireland, the "boy in the window" during the horrifying Columbine High School shooting ten years ago is doing just fine. Marty Columbine survivors, like Ireland, have moved on to careers in education, medicine, ministry and retail. Yet lingering emotional scars still trigger anxiety, nightmares and deeply etched recollections of gunfire, blood and bodies.
Graves, now 25, moved into a suburb near the mountains, where he recently purchased a home with Us. fiancee, Kara DeHart, 22. He- w ThIl& with a lirrip and still feels pain but keeps a positive attitude. He plans to return to college to pursue a career in forensics science, a path that began to interest him after Columbine. On Monday's anniversary, Graves will go back to the spot where he was shot, smoke a cigar and leave another on the ground for Rohrbough, something he does every year. With two children at Columbine, Ted Hochhalter watched the drama unfold on television while waiting in a Seattle airport for a flight back to Denver. He arrived to find his daughter, Anne Marie, paralyzed and in critical condition,
and that his son Nathan had been trapped, but unhurt, in the science wing for four hours. . Tie took a leave of absence frOm.his job as a governiiient emergency management coordinator. Six months later his wife, Carla, who had a history of mental illness, walked into a pawn shop, picked up a gun and committed suicide. Hochhalter believes the aftermath of the shootings exacerbated his wife's illness. "It got to a point where she made a choice," he said. He moved the family into the mountain community of Bailey and married Katherine Zocco, a massage therapist specializing in neuromuscular, spinal cord and brain injuries who worked with Anne Marie and other Columbine survivors.

Sorority hosts ice cream social, raises money Lauren Lubbers Correspondent
Last month, Alpha Gamma Delta Sorority held its second annual fundraiser with all proceeds going to the March of Dimes. They held an ice cream social called "Alpha Gamma Delta with a Cherry on Top" and raised money though ticket sales. Tickets were sold by each of the members to raise money for the charity. They raised over $1,500, more than triple last year's amount. Last Tuesday, an ambassador family 'representing
the March of Dimes went to the soroity house to formally accept the donated check and thank them for their contribution. The Hall family chose to travel the country and share the story of their daughter Katelyn's premature birth and how the March of Dimes saved her life. They try to encourage others to contribute and donate to the organization to help save more lives. The Halls shared their story with the ladies of Alpha Gam as Katelyn enthusiastically accepted the check on
behalf of the organization. Alpha Gamma Delta
Philanthropy Chair, Natasha Irons, was responsible for hosting the fundraiser last month. "I was truly honored when March of Dimes called to tell me they were coming to see us," Irons said. "The fact that they took the time out of their day to come and personally thank us was very exciting to our girls and seeing Katelyn made it that much better and even somewhat emotional." The March of Dimes is hosting a walk on May 2 called the March for Babies.

Royalty reigns Greek Week Lauren Lubbers (brrespondent
Every spring, during Greek Week, two individuals are recognized in the Greek community for their leadership and honored by their peers. This year, Hunter Scott of Sigma Tau Gamma Fraternity and Mackenzie Devane of Sigma Kappa Sorority were voted Greek God and Goddess. Mackenzie Devane graduated in 2005 from El Reno High School and is currently a senior marketing major. She has won awards such as the Oklahoma State Regents Scholar Award, President's Honor Roll, Greek Honor Roll and Delta Mu Delta Honor Society. "I was so happy and honored," Devane said. "It was such an awesome feeling wearing that crown and sash and hearing my sisters do the Sigma Kappa chant." "My favorite thing about Greek Week was getting to know the Acacias, the Phi • Beta Sigmas and all the other members of team two," Devane said. "I love the fact that Greek Week gives people the opportunity to branch out and
get to know different Greek houses. Team two was a fantastic team, and I really enjoyed working with everyone." Hunter Scott graduated in 2007 from Minco High School and is currently a sophomore broadcasting major. Scott is PLC President, Co-Director of Stampede Week and Acting Coach for Broncho Showcase. He has won awards such as PLC Scholarship, Outstanding PLC Freshman, Sigma Tau Gamma Member of the Year and UCO Central Standout. "I felt amazing and blessed when I won mainly because I'm only a sophomore and I didn't really think that I would win something like this so early in my college life," Scott said. "But obviously I was very happy to win and represent my brothers of Sigma Tau Gamma." "I love Greek Week," Scott said. "It's so much fun seeing all of the Greeks going crazy. The Greek community is a close one, so it's nice to bond and spend the week together, even if it's in a competitive way. Spring Sing is my favorite event, but just socializing with. your fellow Greeks is the best thing about Greek Week."
Katrina flooding victims in court to seek damages Cain Burdeau issociated Press
NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Lucille Franz lost her home and her sister in the flooding that follwed Hurricane Katrina. She blames the Army Corps of Engineers. Arguments are set to begin Monday in a lawsuit she filed along with four other residents and a business. They claim the corps owes them damages because of the massive flooding after Katrina that stirred up the waters and washed out levees along a 75-mile, man-made shipping channel dubbed "hurricane highway." Much is at stake in the trial, which will be heard and decided by a judge, not a jury: If the plaintiffs are victorious, more than 120,000 other individuals, businesses and government entities could have a better shot at claiming billions of dollars in damages. The residents argue the corps' poor maintenance of the Mississippi River-Gulf Outlet, a shipping channel dug in the 1960s as a short-cut between the Gulf of Mexico and New Orleans, led to the wipeout of St. Bernard Parish and the city's Lower Ninth Ward when Katrina struck in August 2005. They are asking for damages between $300,000 and $400,000 for each individual.
Franz, 75, lost her home in the Lower 9th Ward, and her sister drowned at St. Rita's nursing home in St. Bernard near the MRGO, also know as "Mister Go." "They are responsible," she said of the corps. "We wouldn't have had that kind of water if it hadn't been for the MRGO." The corps has argued that it is immune from liability because the channel is part of New Orleans' flood con-
trol system, but the judge has allowed the case to move forward because residents claim the shipping channel was a navigation project. The four-week trial will explore in detail the natural history, engineering and politics of the Mississippi RiverGulf Outlet.

The outlet was authorized in 1958 by Congress. The route went through largely pristine wilderness of marsh and swamp forest southeast of New Orleans. Scientists say its construction destroyed about 18,000 acres of marsh and 1,500 acres of cypress swamps.

NFL Icon Madden retires Chris Wescott Sports IVri e r
John Madden, a voice known to many, retired from broadcasting this past week. When someone who has been around the sport for sometime thinks football, John Madden may very well be who those people see. Whether it is his video game line and merchandise, or his way of -making the game seem more fun with his "Captain Obvious" remarks mixed with his vast knowledge of the sport, John Madden will be missed. Even for his criticizers, they have to admit that he's a face of the sport. However, at age 73, the hard work seemed to have been slowly catching up to him. It has been more and more evident, from his continued refusal to fly anywhere to his absence from a game last season because he could not handle the cross country trip that week. . Madden broadcasted NFL games with Pat Summerall in the 1980s and 199os on CBS and FOX. Most recently however, he moved to ABC's Monday Night Football prior to its move to ESPN in 2006. His latest color commentary job was with Sunday Night Football on NBC. He finished off his broadcasting career by doing the color commentary for the Super Bowl earlier this year. Madden was inducted to the NFL Hall of Fame in 2006. His record of being a coach and having won over 76% of his games in his 10-year career were more than enough to get him in.
That's even if you don't include what he has done for the sport, marketing or broadcast-wise. Perhaps the best known contribution of Madden is his video game line. Since 1988, the video game series, Madden NFL, has carried his name. It is the most popular video game line ever released in North America.
Despite his popularity as a broadcaster, John Madden was once quoted saying, "I'm always going to be a football guy who's an announcer. I will never be an announcer." John Madden retires a proud, profitable, famous and well known career as a broadcaster but will always be a face of the sport he loves so much.
