What happened Wednesday Gov. Mary Fallin signed a bill banning abortions after 20 weeks based on the belief that a fetus can feel pain. She also signed a bill that would require a separate insurance policy for an abortion.

PREVIOUS LEGAL CHALLENGES Pending: House Bill 2780, passed last year, would

require a woman to undergo an ultrasound before having an abortion. A previous law containing the ultrasound language was thrown out in 2009 for violating the state constitution’s single-subject rule. February 2010: A law requiring women seeking abortions to disclose information that would be put on a state-run website and banning abortions based on fetus gender is thrown out by a state district court judge for violating the single-subject rule.


Bill to cut prisoner ranks gets Senate OK BY BARBARA HOBEROCK World Capitol Bureau

OKLAHOMA CITY — The Senate on Wednesday passed a measure designed to reduce the prison’s population, despite concerns a key provision of the bill had been taken out. House Bill 2131, by House Speaker Kris Steele, R-Shawnee, and Sen. Patrick Anderson, R-Enid, now heads to the House after securing passage in the Senate by a vote of 44 to 3. The measure would expand community sentencing and electronic monitoring. Community sentencing costs about $3.50 per day while electronic monitoring costs about $4.75 a day. The cost to house an offender at minimum security is about $38 a day. “If we can increase the use of community-based services for nonviolent offenders and place a greater focus on treatment and prevention, the crime rates in our state could be SEE PRISONS A4

Crime lab goes high-tech TPD’s new facility up for international accreditation BY NICOLE MARSHALL World Staff Writer

The cramped confines of the old Tulsa Police Department Forensic Laboratory and Property Room now seem light years behind the state-of-the art facilities where criminal evidence is now stored and tested. In fact, the high-tech Tulsa Police Laboratory could receive an international accreditation. After months of work, lab examiners are waiting for word from the American Society of Crime Lab Directors about the accreditation, which lab director Tara Valouch described as a “big step in the right direction.”

Parents and students at Wilson and Cleveland middle schools grilled school district officials Wednesday evening about a proposal that could shutter both buildings and consolidate students at Rogers High School in the fall. In separate forums, people sought officials’ reasons for targeting the two middle schools and answers about what alternatives might exist for students who aren’t interested in an early college program. “How can you assure students that this experimental program will be up and running in just a few months?” one woman asked at Wilson, where about 85 people turned out.

Japan makes plant TPS: area a no-go zone BY MARI YAMAGUCHI AND ELAINE KURTENBACH Associated Press

TOKYO — Japan declared a 12-mile area evacuated around its tsunami-crippled nuclear power plant a no-go zone on Thursday, urging residents to abide by the order for their own safety. Chief Cabinet Secretary Yukio Edano said the order was meant to prevent unrestricted entry into the mostly deserted area, which was ordered evacuated after last month’s tsunami and earthquake wrecked the Fukushima Dai-ichi plant’s power and cooling systems. Under Japan’s Disaster Countermeasures Basic Law, people who enter the zone would be subject to fines of up to $1,200 and possible arrest. Up to now, defiance of the evacuation order was not punishable by law. “We beg the understanding of residents. We really want residents not to enter the areas,” Edano said. “Unfortunately, there are still some people in the areas.” Almost all the zone’s nearly 80,000 residents left when the area was evacuated on March 12, a day after the tsunami struck, but police have not been able to legally block them from going back. Police contacted Thursday said they had no estimate of the exact number of people who have returned to the zone or who still might be living there. Officials said the order was meant to limit exposure to radiation leaking from the

plant, and to control entry to prevent theft. Edano said authorities would arrange brief visits for residents, allowing one person per household to return by bus for a maximum of two hours to collect necessary belongings. Residents would be required to go through radiation screening, he said. “We realize this is extremely inconvenient for residents, but we urge you to be patient,” Edano told reporters in Tokyo. Prime Minister Naoto Kan was visiting the region Thursday to meet with local officials and evacuees to discuss the plans for strict enforcement of the evacuation zone. Kan, who will also visit a nuclear crisis management center during his Thursday trip, has been under fire from the opposition for the government’s response to the nuclear crisis. Meanwhile, a doctor who met with workers at the stricken plant said Wednesday that crews are suffering from insomnia, show signs of dehydration and high blood pressure and are at risk of developing depression or heart trouble. The crews have been fighting to get the radiation-spewing plant under control since it was crippled by the earthquake and tsunami. “The conditions at the plant remain harsh,” epidemiologist Takeshi Tanigawa told The Associated Press. “I am afraid that if this continues we will see a growing risk of health problems.”

One district official assured the group that a decision had not yet been made. FROM A1

Superintendent Keith Ballard responded, “I would tell students this is a rare and excellent opportunity. It is not experimental. This model has been successful in other cities, and it is working in Tulsa right now. We’ve got 36 students already in the program at TCC (Tulsa Community College).” If the plan is approved as part of Tulsa Public Schools’ Project Schoolhouse consolidation initiative, Rogers would offer students the opportunity to simultaneously earn high school diplomas and associate degrees. But only students in the Kendall-Whittier and Sequoyah elementary school boundaries would be guaranteed admission there. All other seats would be awarded by a lottery. Parents at both forums wanted details about what would happen to children with special needs, as well as those who don’t qualify to be in the proposed Rogers High School early college program. Kevin Burr, associate superintendent for secondary schools, said at the Wilson forum, “We do want to open the program to anyone, regardless of whether they are individuals with disabilities or who are on IEPs (Indi-

vidualized Education Programs).” He said students from Kendall-Whittier and Sequoyah would have an opportunity regardless of their academic achievement. One woman said her daughter told her she didn’t think she was smart enough for the early college program. Burr responded, “We want her, and we want her to have that opportunity.” Another woman told officials, “It really, really scares me that you’re willing to trash it (Wilson) and move it into another building and slap a new name on it. I think your intentions are good, but I think the long-term ramifications are not great because not everybody is cut out to be the same.” Ballard responded by saying that he is excited about the new educational opportunity for students and that school districts today need to strive to make every student collegeready, regardless of his or her future plans. Some 70 students, parents and teachers met at Cleveland Middle School

to tell two district officials their thoughts on the possible closure of that school. Most seemed resigned to the prospect that the school, located at 724 N. Birmingham Ave., would close. “No matter what the parents say, TPS already has their mind made up,” said one Spanish-speaking woman whose words were relayed by a translator. “TPS destroys families.” One district official assured the group that a decision had not yet been made. Seventh-grader Noah Crutison said that “I do not believe that Cleveland should be closed. Cleveland is a family. You cannot separate us. “Why when Cleveland’s crime rate is a lot lower than Gilcrease (Middle School, at 5550 N. Cincinnati Ave.) did you decide to close down Cleveland?” he asked. The crowd applauded, and many murmured that Tulsa Public Schools doesn’t care about kids. “We may not be the smartest school, but we do love and help each other,” said seventh-grader Broderick McQuarters. Another parent suggested that if Wilson Middle School is also closed, their students be consolidated at Cleveland. “Oklahoma pays $17,000 per prisoner and $6,000 per student,” said one man. “It seems like we want our kids to fail rather than succeed.” Andrea Eger 918-581-8470

Project Schoolhouse research highlights On Wednesday, Tulsa Public Schools released highlights of the third-party research that was used in the development of Project Schoolhouse proposals to make some Tulsa high schools’ grade configurations 7-12 rather than 9-12.

Among the findings:

• The fewer school-to-school transitions, the better chance a student has of completing high school; the more transitions, the higher the drop-out rate. • If there is a transition into a new school for high school instruction, seventh grade appears to be the ideal time, as it shows the lowest drop-out rate. • Schools with more grade levels per building have demonstrated higher academic achievement and better attendance rates, self-esteem and attitudes toward school. They also saw fewer suspensions and behavior programs regardless of socioeconomic status. • More opportunities exist for tutoring and older student role model programs in schools with a broad span of grades levels. • Longer grade spans allow for better curriculum alignment across grade levels. • A significant number of districts across the nation are transitioning away from the use of middle schools. The number of middle schools peaked in 2005 at just over 9,000, and there were estimated to be fewer than 7,950 in 2010. • Researchers have found that students who attended middle school in sixth grade were twice as likely to be disciplined than sixth-graders in elementary schools. Also, sixth-grade boys, in particular, experienced more suspensions in middle schools or junior high schools than in elementary schools, possibly related to the effects of the transition.

An officer says better security is a benefit of the new property room.


A key provision that could cut prison terms was removed.


ter for Health Sciences in Tulsa. The 125,000-square-foot facility at 1111 W. 17th St. houses the evidence room and forensic lab on the first and second floor. “It is absolutely wonderful. The space has increased four times compared to the previous space, from 6,000 to 24,000 square feet. Everybody has a little more room to do their analysis,” Valouch said. “The work flow has benefited, so the case loads will benefit.” The third, fourth and fifth floors are used for teaching and research by OSU forensics and biomedical faculty members and graduate students. The nearly $39 million project was paid for by higher education and city bonds, grants and the city’s 2001 and 2006 third-penny sales taxes. There are 17 people now working in the police laboratory, conducting DNA, toxicology and firearms testing, as well as studies on blood splatter, latent prints and other crime-scene evidence. The examiners had input on how to design the space, from the heights of the benches to the shelving, Valouch said. “What is good for the DNA testing is not necessarily good for the toxicology room. Relatively speaking, it is just leaps and bounds above the other lab. Any examiner from across the nation would love to come work here,” she said. The lab has even been recognized in the field for efforts to conserve energy with motion-activated lights and doors, Valouch said. “It makes it nice because you are not constantly flipping on and off switches, especially with your hands full,” she said. The lab is connected by a secure elevator to the police’s new property room where white cardboard boxes fill row after row of oversized, movable shelves. Some boxes may contain evidence that eventually solves a homicide, closes a rape case or brings a battered child safety and justice. “Keeping the evidence or property allows for several things.

Seized guns line a shelf in the Tulsa Police Department’s new property room.

This first thing is just the obvious, putting the bad guy in jail. The second thing is to ensure that the wrong guy does not go to prison, and, lastly, it is to keep them there if they do need go to jail,” Sgt. Kim Presley said. Presley supervised the transition from the old property room to the new facility. She estimated that there is at least seven times more space now compared with the previous facility on the first floor of the downtown police station.

said Kate Neary-Pounds, Tulsa Reproductive Services director. “This bill ignores women’s individual circumstances and allows the Legislature to intervene between a woman and her doctor instead of allowing a woman to make decisions about her health and her family in consultation with her doctor. This bill is another indication of how little the Oklahoma Legislature respects and values women’s health and rights.” Reproductive Services is a plaintiff in a pending lawsuit challenging legislation passed last year that requires women seeking abortions to have ultrasounds. “Right now, we are concentrating on our lawsuit regarding last year’s ultrasound legislation,” Neary-Pounds said. “However, we’re keeping our options open.” “I stand behind our law and our Legislature,” Fallin said. “If it gets challenged, so be it.” Fallin also signed Senate Bill 547 that would require those seeking an abortion to obtain supplemental health insurance coverage with a separate premium. Oklahomans recognize that abortion is not health care, said Tony Lauinger, chairman of Oklahomans for Life. Pooled funds of pro-life premium payers shouldn’t be used in abortions, he said. “We, in America, have surpassed many times over the death toll of the camps of the Third Reich,” Lauinger said. “Fifty-three million babies have been killed since 1973. Fifty-three million. That is the legacy of Roe v. Wade.” Roe v. Wade is a 1973 U.S. Supreme Court decision that struck down a state law banning abortion except to save the mother’s life because it restricted a woman’s right to choose. It said states could regulate abortions in the later months of pregnancy. Barbara Hoberock 405-528-2465

The Tulsa Police Property Room stores all department evidence, items turned in for destruction, items being held for the rightful owner and unclaimed found property. About 75,000 to 100,000 items are brought into the property room per year. The demand for more space is always growing, she said. For every two pieces of stored property, the department can arrange to get rid of one piece. The department disposes of unclaimed property and evidence through

an auction administered by the Finance Department. The security also has improved, Presley said. There is a designated area for counting seized cash and secured vehicle areas for unloading property. Security cameras have been installed throughout. There is also a state-of-theart room for examining vehicles, complete with a lift and ventilation system. One room has cabinets for clothing or other materials that might have blood or other fluids on them, Presley said. There is also a large, walk-in refrigerator for storing blood kits or other items that might need a cool environment. Guns that have been seized are marked and placed in their appropriate storage area, whether they are marked for destruction or awaiting return to their lawful owner. “Everything is brand new. We are a great Police Department, and we need to be able to prosecute cases, so we need to be the best-equipped; we need the best tools that we can get to be able to put bad guys in jail,” Presley said.

reduced,” Steele said. Under the measure, nonviolent offenders would be deemed approved for parole if the governor didn’t act on the Pardon and Parole Board’s action within 30 days. The measure does not remove the governor from the parole process. It also would set minimum standards for Pardon and Parole Board members. Under the measure, a member would have to have a minimum of a bachelor’s degree in social science or at least 10 years in criminal justice, law or counseling. However, a key provision that would have dramatically reduced an inmate’s length of time behind bars was removed after some prosecutors voiced concern. The original measure would have made offenders convicted of two or more crimes in the same proceeding serve the sentences at the same time, or concurrently, unless a judge ordered otherwise. Currently, in absence of an order from the court, offenders with more than one sentence serve the sentences back to back, or consecutively. Sen. Richard Leblance, D-Hartshorne, said the removal of the language guts the bill. Leblance said he hoped Steele would restore the language when the measure returns to the House. “It is a golden opportunity to allow the Department of Corrections reduce some of its costs,” Leblance said. “We did not oppose the bill,” said Trent Baggett, District Attorneys Council assistant executive coordinator. He said he was unaware of which prosecutors may have opposed the measure. Department of Corrections Director Justin Jones said he appreciates the efforts of Steele and others to insert best practices into a bill that affects the agency. Because the bill did not have an emergency clause, it would not take effect until Nov. 1. Jones said the agency will see marginal savings in the next six to seven months. Full savings will be realized in about 18 months. Barbara Hoberock 405-528-2465

Tulsa Transit: $1 million Obama blasts GOP plan on Medicare, spending needed just to maintain Associated Press

NEWS BRIEFS 4 Tehran, Iran

Ahmadinejad warned to keep intel minister in post Political pressures mounted on President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad after more than 200 lawmakers warned Wednesday that he must obey an order from the country’s supreme leader reinstating Iran’s powerful intelligence minister. The showdown over Heidar Moslehi has brought fresh allegations that Ahmadinejad and his allies are trying to grab more power and challenge the all-encompassing authority of Iran’s ruling clerics. It also pointed to a potential fissure in the heart of Ahmadinejad’s government. Moslehi resigned Sunday following reported internal disputes with Ahmadinejad, and the president publicly accepted it. But Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei quickly ordered that Moslehi remain on the job, which has a key role in Iran’s relentless crackdown on dissidents. A statement signed by 216 parliament members — more than two-thirds of the 290-seat chamber — warned Ahmadinejad that he cannot ignore Khamenei, who has the last word in all state affairs.

5 Manila, Philippines

Fire leaves about 8,000 homeless in capital city Philippine authorities Wednesday blamed a defective electrical outlet for a massive fire that razed a squatters’ colony in Manila’s financial district and left about 8,000 people homeless. Fire Chief Ricardo Perdigon in Makati city said a tenant plugged in a cellphone charger and ran outside after sparks triggered a fire that spread quickly to other homes Tuesday in the congested community near the city’s main highway.

Appeals court finds rock band guilty in fatal fire An Argentine appeals court Wednesday overturned verdicts of innocent for a rock band in the deaths of 194 people in a nightclub fire and found them guilty. The ruling means the seven members of the Callejeros now face 11 years in prison for bribery and involuntarily starting the 2004 fire, which was caused when someone in the audience lit a flare below the flammable ceiling. The Cromagnon Republic nightclub was given a permit even though it lacked basic safety measures and the doors were locked to keep people from sneaking in. The appeals court upheld convictions for the concert promoter, the band’s manager, a police officer and several city inspectors.

8 Vienna

Memorial to honor those who deserted Nazi army Vienna will erect a memorial to honor deserters from Hitler’s army, the City Council said Wednesday. The move was another move by Austria to confront its wartime past. Since the 1980s, the country has gone from denial to gradually acknowledging that it shares guilt for atrocities committed by Nazi Germany. The Austria Press Agency reported that the decision was endorsed by the Socialist and Green parties, which form Vienna’s municipal government coalition. Austria’s parliament two years ago agreed to rehabilitate deserters criminalized by the Nazis for refusing to continue serving in the Third Reich’s armed forces.

200-year-old Champagne from shipwreck to be sold

9 Mexico City

Two bottles of Champagne, preserved for nearly 200 years in a Baltic Sea shipwreck, are heading for the auction block. The government of the Aland Islands — an autonomous region of Finland situated between Sweden and Finland — said Wednesday it will auction off one bottle each of the oldest preserved examples of Veuve Clicquot and Juglar in the islands’ main city of Mariehamn on June 3. A total of 145 bottles of bubbly were found 164 feet deep south of the islands in July 2010, including 95 from the now-defunct Champagne house Juglar. Experts have said the bottles, dating from the early 19th century, could fetch more than $70,000 each at auction.

Mexican federal agents rescued 68 people, including 12 Central American migrants, allegedly kidnapped by a drug cartel in northern Mexico, authorities said Wednesday. The Public Safety Department said the rescue came in a neighborhood in the border city of Reynosa, across from McAllen, Texas, where officers went in response to a tip and found two gunmen hidden in a house with the kidnap victims. Some of the victims told police they were taken by members of the Gulf drug cartel from buses heading to Reynosa’s bus station or from the station itself.

Squeeze• in• Sir,• excuse• me• Earl.•Lawmakers•say•the•red• leather• benches• of• Britain’s• House•of•Lords•are•packed•to• bursting•—•with•Parliament’s• upper• chamber• straining• to• cope• with• the• needs• of• almost•800•members.

Would-be robber, store clerk exchange gunfire

Broken oil-tank pipe fuels large fire; no injuries

Shots were exchanged between a would-be robber and a clerk during an armed robbery at a convenience store Wednesday, police said. Officers are searching for the robber, and they were unsure whether he was struck during the exchange of gunfire at Ryan’s Convenience Store, 9848 E. 21st St. The robber entered the store about 12:15 p.m. and demanded money, Officer Leland Ashley said. The clerk pulled a gun, and the robber shot at him, Ashley said. The clerk returned fire and saw the robber fall to the floor. The robber shot at the clerk again before fleeing, Ashley said. “We are not sure if he was hit, but there is a possibility he was,” Ashley said. “We have notified all of the hospitals to be watching for someone with a gunshot wound.” The robber was described as black, about 6 feet 2 inches tall and 20 to 30 years old. He was wearing a blue hooded shirt and had a black bandana covering his face. Anyone with information about the robber is asked to contact Crime Stoppers at 918596-COPS or crimestoppers. The Crime Commission pays rewards for information that leads to arrests, and tipsters can be anonymous. — NICOLE MARSHALL, World staff writer

A previously convicted drug felon has been sentenced to 10 years in prison in a Broken Arrow case in which police reported finding meth-lab materials in a child’s “Dora the Explorer” backpack. Cecil Doyle Martin pleadMartin ed guilty this week to a charge of attempting to manufacture methamphetamine. Tulsa County District Judge William Kellough imposed the 10-year term. A count of child endangerment against Martin, 34, was dismissed in November. Records show that he has Muskogee County convictions for possessing a controlled drug with an intent to distribute and for possessing marijuana. On Aug. 10, Broken Arrow police stopped a vehicle driven by Martin and occupied by his wife, Melissa Dawn Martin, and two children, ages 1 and 2, police reported. Police said they noticed the odors of marijuana and meth-manufacturing. Meth-lab components were found in the vehicle and in the backpack, reports show. Melissa Martin, 27, has a drug case related to the Aug. 10 arrests and is participating in the Women in Recovery treatment program, records indicate. — BILL BRAUN, World staff writer

aggravated trafficking in illegal drugs. Romere also is charged with maintaining a place for selling drugs. Jesse Lee Teague, 19, was charged with distribution of a controlled substance, trafficking in illegal drugs and use of a telecommunication device in a drug transaction. The three, along with Jordan Raylynn Rhyn, 21, also are charged with possession of marijuana with an intent to distribute. Baker-Summers’ address is in Claremore, but the other three are Owasso residents, court records state. Acting on a tip from a confidential informant, an undercover officer met with Teague on April 15 to buy ecstasy, according to an arrest report. Teague took the officer to Romere’s residence and told him to wait in the car, the report says. Officials allege that Teague came back with nearly 60 ecstasy pills. The officer then signaled waiting officers to arrest Teague and serve a search warrant. More than 400 ecstasy pills were found in the house, along with two small bags of marijuana and scales, according to the report. Ecstasy “produces feelings of increased energy, euphoria, emotional warmth, and distortions in time, perception, and tactile experiences,” according to the National Institute on Drug Abuse. It traditionally has been used as a “party drug.” All four defendants remain in the Tulsa Jail. — JERRY WOFFORD, World staff writer

before 3 p.m., the pipe broke and spewed oil on the pump’s motor, Clark said. “With the heat of the motor, it just caught the oil on fire,” he said. The fire spread to the employee’s pickup and destroyed it before firefighters could arrive. The oil on the ground also started a wildfire. Thick, black smoke could be seen for miles around as the oil, grass and trees burned. Firefighters from Turley, Sperry and Owasso were able to get the main body of the fire under control in about 45 minutes, but grass fires continued to smolder. — JERRY WOFFORD, World staff writer

Oologah police chief’s son handed deferred sentence CLAREMORE — The son of Oologah’s police chief received a two-year deferred sentence Wednesday after pleading no contest to a 2010 charge of impersonating a police officer, a Rogers County court spokeswoman said. In accordance with a plea agreement, Curt Allen Thompson, 35, was fined $200 and ordered to pay a $100 victim’s compensation assessment. Thompson, the son of Oologah Police Chief Novale Thompson, must serve either 30 days in the Rogers County Jail or complete 120 hours of community service. Prosecutors allege that on July 1, while acting in the capacity of a police officer, Curt Thompson drove to a residence in a marked Oologah Police Department vehicle with the emergency lights activated, records show. Thompson was wearing a generic “POLICE” T-shirt and a ball cap with an Oologah Police Department patch sewn on, records state. While there, he made contact with occupants who were having an altercation, records state. Thompson reportedly left the scene in the police car but returned soon in a pickup and wearing clothing that didn’t identify him as a police officer. — RHETT MORGAN, World staff writer

Property tax curb backed • The proposed constitutional amendment could reduce state revenue growth by $6.5 million. BY WAYNE GREENE World Senior Writer

The state House of Representatives gave final legislative approval Wednesday to a proposed constitutional amendment that would limit property tax assessment increases to 3 percent on owner-occupied homes and agricultural land.

House Joint Resolution 1002 passed 77-16, sending it to a vote of the people. The proposal should appear on the 2012 general election ballot as State Question 758, the Oklahoma Secretary of State’s Office said. “If you go door to door — come eyeball to eyeball with your constituents — you’re going to find

Kenny Chuculate, deputy director of the Oklahoma Tax Commission, said a state analysis of the impact of a 3 percent assessment limit shows that it would result in $6.5 million less property tax revenue growth statewide.

U.S. Sen. Tom Coburn said Wednesday that he opposes raising the federal debt limit when the current $14.3 trillion cap is reached next month, a position supported by some conservatives but opposed by many economic and financial experts warning of dire economic consequences. “There are a lot of ways to redirect money in the federal government,� he said before appearing before the Rotary SACRIFICE Club of Tulsa.

Man retraces route from Tennessee to Tahlequah BY MICHAEL OVERALL World Staff Writer

The Trail of Tears

AHLEQUAH — A lot changes in three months and 835 miles. Winter gives way to spring, and the snow-covered mountains of Tennessee become the wooded hills of eastern Oklahoma. Following the original route as closely as possible, Ron Cooper walked the entire Trail of Tears, ending Wednesday afternoon south of Tahlequah. Cooper first thought of retracing the historic trail as a simple test of physical strength and endurance, “just to see if I could do it,� he says, describing himself as an avid hiker and backpacker. “But as I went along, it became much more to me.� A native of Lawton, Cooper, 43, belongs to the Comanche Nation, not the Cherokees. He had heard all his life about the Trail of Tears, but he didn’t know more than the average Oklahoman, who has surely heard the basic story. Beginning in 1831 with the Choctaws and ending most famously with the Cherokees in 1838, the federal govern-

Tulsans urged to speak out against more Medicaid cuts BY SHANNON MUCHMORE World Staff Writer

The “Driving for Quality Care Oklahoma” tour advocating against potential cuts in care for older Oklahomans stopped Wednesday in Tulsa. The advocates are gathering petition signatures to ask legislators to prevent further cuts to the Medicaid reimbursement rate, stating that less funding would force state nursing homes to close. The RV tour has made 14 stops in northeastern Oklahoma and will end Tuesday at the state Capitol in Oklahoma City. The group will be in Sapulpa on Thursday. Scott Proctor, who is part of the Coalition of Advocates for Responsible Eldercare, closed his facility in Jefferson County last year because of financial issues. The 26 residents went to homes in Texas or Oklahoma, some as far away as 60 miles. Thirty employees lost their jobs. Proctor said he was forced to close by low Medicaid reimbursement rates that — after a cut of 3.25 percent in April 2010 — left him with a gap of about $5 per patient, per care day. That equaled an annual hole of more than $47,000. “The losses become so great on the Medicaid side, we couldn’t offset them,” he said. State and federal standards of care that require certain staffing levels and amenities make it difficult for administrators to cut expenses and remain in compliance with the regulations, Proctor said. The facility had been in his wife’s family for more than 50 years, and the couple had been running it since 1999, he said. Proctor is now part of the effort to persuade legislators to refrain from lowering the reimbursement rate any more.

“Any further reduction in our Medicaid reimbursement will be devastating to the nursing home industry, which would in turn be devastating to residents,” he said. The nursing home industry employs about 35,000 people in Oklahoma. The state has 314 nursing homes with about 20,000 residents total, according to the Oklahoma State Department of Health. Of those residents, about 70 percent are on Medicaid, according to data provided by the advocacy group. Speaking to staff members, residents and their relatives Wednesday at Leisure Village, Proctor said that in the past year, nursing homes in Oklahoma have been closing at the rate of one a month. Diane Hambric, president

of Gold Medallion, which owns Leisure Village, said the nursing home is in good shape financially but could have to cut some personnel or extra services if the reimbursement rate is reduced again. “That will financially impact us tremendously,” she said. Jean White, who has been a resident of Leisure Village for six months, said she owes her life to the nursing home’s staff. “Leisure Village has done a lot for me, and I owe them something greatly,” she said. “If I became a millionaire tomorrow, I would want to put it (the money) into this place.” Leisure Village Administrator Dwayne Hill said maintaining quality care for older people is a responsibility and an issue of human decency. “We have to take care of the elderly,” he said. “They have built the nation we’re in.” Shannon Muchmore 918-581-8378

where other than school administration buildings, and Rep. George Faught, RMuskogee, whose district abuts McPeak’s, said he has had constituents — including people whose homes are worth less than $50,000 — express support for the measure. Away from the Capitol, Tulsa County Assessor Ken Yazel warned that the measure could actually result in higher property tax bills for many people. The proposal would limit the growth of assessments, but property taxes are a product of assessments and millage rates. He said about 32 percent of Tulsa County’s property tax millages are not fixed — they rise or fall to raise a specific amount of money. If assessed values don’t rise with market values, the variable millages — which pay for things such as bond issues and legal judgments paid through sinking funds — will increase, and property taxes will go up for many, Yazel said. An assessment cap helps

property owners whose market values are rising rapidly, but for those whose property values aren’t rising, it results in taxes going up faster than they would without the assessment cap, he said. “What was passed was a shifting of who pays the taxes,” Yazel said. A previous constitutional amendment limits property tax assessment increases for all real estate to 5 percent. For homes owned by people who are at least 65 years old and who meet household income guidelines, assessments are frozen. In Tulsa County, the freeze applies to older households with incomes of no more than $59,300. The proposed assessment cap would only apply to agricultural property and property covered by homestead exemptions — owner-occupied homes. Assessment increases on other property — including commercial property — would still be covered by the 5 percent cap.

We have to think about the future.” INCOG Energy Programs Coordinator Meredith Webber said CNG helps lock in reduced fuel costs and maintenance expenses, which are lower than with gas-powered trucks. Councilor Jim Mautino expressed concern that requiring CNG vehicles would be a burden on bidders. He also said he would want to make sure that the costs involved wouldn’t affect customer trash rates. Councilor Chris Trail agreed with the benefits of CNG but suggested that if this were to be a requirement, it might be good to allow the winning contractor to phase in the use of such vehicles.

U.S. Sen. Tom Coburn, speaking to the Rotary Club of Tulsa on Wednesday, backed off slightly on his initial statement saying he would not favor raising the debt limit. TOM GILBERT/Tulsa World

U.S. debt, which is generally interpreted as a threat to downgrade the nation’s credit rating. “What S&P said is that there is a negative trend on the U.S. ability to repay what it owes,” Coburn told the Rotarians. “That’s putting it mildly.” Coburn said the federal government can continue to operate without defaulting on its debt by redirecting cash flow, at least for awhile. Asked how long that could be done, Coburn said he did not know. During his address, he said he would “absolutely not” favor raising the debt

ceiling, but then he backed off slightly. “For us to raise the debt limit, I think a few things ought to happen,” he said. “We ought to pass a constitutional amendment that requires the federal government to balance the budget. That’s No. 1. No. 2, we have to put in hard caps and changes over the next 10 months that will get us out of the mess we’re in. “Those are my requirements,” Coburn said. “Unless I’m absolutely guaranteed we’re going to do something substantive to solve our problems, I won’t vote” to raise the debt limit. Coburn said bringing the nation’s debt under control will require sacrifice from all Americans, though, during the course of what was mostly a 35-minute question-and-answer session, the only specific areas discussed were Medicaid and Medicare reform.

“We have to massively change Medicaid,” he said. “We have to massively change Medicare.” Coburn criticized President Barack Obama for a lack of leadership on budget issues, calling Obama’s speech on the subject last week divisive. “My personal opinion is that the president is too interested in getting re-elected,” he said. “I’ve told him, ‘If you’ll really lead on this issue, you can get re-elected. If you really lead, if you pull the nation together, if you describe the problem, people will trust your leadership.’ “He is being pulled in opposite directions,” Coburn said. “He has political advisers and he has policy advisers. The policy advisers agree with me, the political advisers pull him the other way.” Randy Krehbiel 918-581-8365

Dank said during Tuesday’s House consideration that assessments — and property taxes — will continue to go up with his proposal. They simply would go up slower. Rep. Jerry McPeak, D-Warner, said he had found no one in his district who was aware of the proposal or supported it. He suggested the measure would primarily benefit people in high-end houses. Dank said McPeak needed to ask his question some-

Historians can pinpoint certain locations where the Trail of Tears passed, but experts often can’t tell exactly what path the Cherokees took from one point to the next. Cooper spent a year and a half planning his route. With help from the National Park Service, he studied historic maps and read 19th-century diaries. “The more I learned about the history,” he says, “the more I discovered how much all the tribes have in

common. “It may have happened at different times and under different circumstances, but all the tribes have faced hardship and adversity.” Starting his trip Jan. 17 in Charleston, Tenn., Cooper spent the first night sleeping in a cemetery. But he quickly gave up on the idea of sleeping outdoors. “It’s mostly private property along the trail,” he says. “And I wasn’t going to trespass.” His wife picked him up every night to sleep in the couple’s RV. Then she dropped him off the next morning on the trail again.

Averaging 15 miles a day, he ended the trip with a public reception at the Cherokee Heritage Center in Park Hill. “We tend to dwell on what the tribes lost,” Cooper says. “And they lost a lot.” But American Indians of all tribes should be proud of what their ancestors overcame, he says. “They made sure that we would still be here in the 21st century,” he says. “That was a victory, not a defeat.” Michael Overall 918-581-8383

Regents’ tuition hearing crowd small but fervent • Three people address the impact of possible tuition and fee increases.

Tuition comparison Yearly tuition and fees costs for undergraduate in-state students: Texas $9,416


OKLAHOMA CITY — Three people, including one student, spoke during a public hearing to discuss college tuition and fees Wednesday morning in Oklahoma City. The forum, hosted by the Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education, was designed to give the public an opportunity to discuss concerns about tuition, which has increased by an average of 5.6 percent per year during the past five years. The meeting lasted less than 20 minutes. Regent John Massey of Durant was the only member of the nine-person board to attend. The other members had other obligations, said state Chancellor Glen Johnson. They will receive copies of the information that was presented Wednesday, said Johnson, who was at the hearing. Regents will set tuition and fees for the 2011-12 school year in June. Tuition and mandatory fees cannot exceed legislative limits that are determined by the costs at peer institutions in other states. Increases have ranged between 0.3 percent and 13.8 percent during the past 10 years, according to information from the state regents. Johnson said Oklahoma’s colleges remain more affordable than many schools in surrounding states. He said regents have tried to control costs for students, despite dwindling state appropriations during recent years. In 2009-10, Oklahoma was one of only a few states to freeze tuition, Johnson said. Still, many students struggle to pay for college as tuition and other costs continue to rise, said Matthew Heggy, a senior majoring in business management at Southeastern Oklahoma State University. “We run the risk of pricing our marginal students out of their education,” said Heggy, who is president of Southeastern’s Student Government Association and vice chairman of the state regents’ Student Advisory Board. Heggy urged regents to minimize costs while maintaining a quality education for students. He said most of his friends rely on financial aid. Help from his parents and scholarships have allowed him to stay debt-free, but Heggy said he expects to borrow money if he goes to graduate school. He said he was disappointed that more students didn’t attend Wednesday’s hearing. C. LeRoy Blank, chairman of the Faculty Advisory Council and chairman of the University of Oklahoma’s Faculty Senate, said the faculty council would support a

Albert Kelly of Bristow will serve on the Turnpike Authority. He succeeds Hal Ellis. Phillip Lakin Jr. of Tulsa was confirmed to serve on the state Board of Education. He succeeds Tim Gilpin. Maj.

have gone four years or longer without salary or benefit increases. Lynn Myers, a clinical pathologist in Oklahoma City, said he is worried for his grandchildren, who he said will face “enormous” college costs. He said he paid $65 a semester to attend Oklahoma A&M College, now Oklahoma State University, and $250 a semester to at-

tend OU medical school in the 1950s. When adjusted for inflation, Myers said those costs would be about $540 and $2,000, respectively. Johnson said the amount of state appropriations higher education receives will be the biggest factor in whether tuition increases next year.

Human rights Commission in cross hairs Whether they mean to, Oklahoma lawmakers are sending the message to the rest of the country that they don’t take human rights and discrimination very seriously. Senate Bill 763, which would move the state Human Rights Commission into the Attorney General’s Office, passed the House by a 61-32 vote and now heads back to the Senate. The commission was created in 1962 by Henry Bellmon, the state’s first Republican governor, to investigate complaints of discrimination. All but two GOP members of the House voted in support of the measure. Several Democrats spoke in favor of keeping the commission independent. Rep. Mike Shelton, D-Oklahoma City, argued that placing it in the AG’s office would subject it to more political pressure, and he added that the AG might be hesitant to prosecute cases under certain circumstances. We agree with Shelton. It’s important that such a function be as removed from politics as much as possible, and the AG’s office is, frankly, about as political as it gets. There is also this argument about moving the commission: What does it accomplish? The GOP party line is that it’s an efficiency move. “This will help streamline our government,” said Floor Leader Dan Sullivan, R-Tulsa, House sponsor of the measure. “This will help make sure these functions ...

are handled properly.” Who says they’re not being handled properly now? As for saving money, the commission received about $571,000 in state funds this fiscal year. If any money is saved by consolidating it with the AG’s office, we doubt seriously it would be much. A human rights advocacy organization made a strong argument for maintaining the status quo. “It is our belief that the Oklahoma Legislature is politicizing and impeding the mechanisms that protect citizens’ civil rights,” said Kathy L. Williams, president of The Equality Network. “Without access to the services of an independent and nonpartisan Oklahoma Human (Rights) Commission, many victims of bias will not have the financial means to pursue civil rights claims against discriminatory employers. ... We cannot turn back the clock on 50 years of civil rights progress and expect Oklahoma to be perceived as (a) forwardthinking, welcoming place.” Well put.

The soaps

Drama continues at City Hall The television networks might be canceling longrunning soap operas, but Tulsans can always count on the drama at City Hall. Republican Councilor John Eagleton, in his quest to oust Republican Mayor Dewey Bartlett, gathered almost 1,900 signatures on a petition to have Republican Attorney General Scott Pruitt investigate alleged wrongdoings by the mayor. This was after he asked Republican Gov. Mary Fallin to do the same. She indicated that Eagleton should settle the matter locally. The latest episode of “As the City Hall Churns” finds Eagleton choosing not to say which of his fellow councilors signed the petition. But the rest of the cast of characters are not so secretive. Although all nine councilors might remain united against the mayor, only three, Jim Mautino, Jack

Bynum declined to sign because, he said, the process wasn’t good for the city. He’s right about that. Pruitt is now bound to “investigate” the matter.

End of an era? The end of an Oklahoma era is at hand … unless you and I can find a miracle. The Frankoma Pottery Co. has been closed for a year without a buyer. Unless Oklahoma City’s BancFirst locates a new buyer in the next three to four weeks, it will auction the contents of the historic Frankoma Pottery building and that, surely, will be the end of this wonderful state treasure. Are there others who want to save the company? Surely, the answer is “Of course, yes.” However, it is difficult to answer that question affirmatively and at the same time be able to provide the funds needed. How much is needed: perhaps a million dollars. Can I provide some of the money? Yes, but I won’t be able to provide it all. Are there a few others out there willing to provide the rest of the needed funds? I can only hope that the answer is, “yes.” Can a company like Frankoma survive long term? I believe that the answer is, “yes.” Can a company like Frankoma make a profit? I really don’t know and I really don’t desire a profit from such an investment. I just want to see this wonderful company endure. Dennis Glascock, Stillwater

A lesson: Man and a moment have met WASHINGTON — During 25 years in the Marine Corps, including flying helicopters in Vietnam, Rep. John Kline, a Minnesota Republican, developed the skill of maintaining small-unit cohesion. He will need this skill in his new job. Half the Republican members of the committee he now chairs are in their first term, and he laughingly guesses that in 2010 “about half of them campaigned on abolishing the Education Department.” Ronald Reagan was an abolitionist, and Kline has proposed legislation to replace Ulysses Grant’s visage with Reagan’s on the $50 bill. Kline, now in his fifth term, chairs the Education and the Workforce Committee that will have jurisdiction over rethinking No Child Left Behind, which soon will be 10 years old and may not recognizably survive to see its 12th birthday. As a Marine, one of Kline’s assignments was to carry the “football” — the package containing the nuclear launch codes — for Presidents Carter and Reagan. Education policy involves no intimations of Armageddon but will force conservatives to confront a contradiction between

their correct theory and a stubborn fact. Their theory is that education in grades K through 12, which gets most of the Education Department’s attention, is a quintessentially state and local responsibility, so the department is inimical to local control of education. Created by a Democratic-controlled Congress in 1979, the department was promised by candidate Jimmy Carter, who in 1976 became the first presidential candidate ever endorsed by the National Education Association, the largest teachers union. Unfortunately, the stubborn fact is that local control means control by the teachers unions. Most school boards are elected, often in standalone elections in which turnout is

low and the unions’ organization prevails. This, Kline says, “is exactly the conversation I’m having with my new members.” He notes that in Minnesota, since school board elections were moved to regular election days, some people not supported by the unions have won. He emphatically favors “a greatly reduced federal footprint” in primary and secondary education. About NCLB, he is decorous, calling it “well-intentioned.” What do teachers in his district think? “They hate it.” This is understandable, given Secretary of Education Arne Duncan’s recent estimate that more than 80,000 of the nation’s 100,000 public schools are going to fail to meet NCLB’s requirement of “adequate yearly progress” when that is measured in testing this spring. Duncan says 82 percent could fail, compared with 37 percent last year. Such a one-year increase would be startling, but the trend is inauspicious: 28 percent failed in the 200607 school year. And success — make that “success” — might be worse than failure.

NCLB decrees that schools must achieve 100 percent proficiency by 2014. NCLB decrees that schools must achieve 100 percent proficiency by 2014, which is a powerful incentive for states to define proficiency down. The New York Times reports: “In South Carolina, about 81 percent of elementary and middle schools missed targets in 2008. The state Legislature responded by reducing the level of achievement defined as proficient, and the next year the proportion of South Carolina schools missing targets dropped to 41 percent.” There also are reasons to suspect that NCLB’s threat of labeling schools as failures constitutes an incentive to cheat. In a number of jurisdictions, including 103 schools in the District of Columbia, machines that grade the tests have detected suspiciously high levels of erasures as test-takers changed incorrect to correct answers. Kline promises that the current

system for measuring adequate yearly progress “will not exist when we are done.” And he says “we have to get rid of this ‘highly qualified teacher’ thing” in NCLB. He thinks “qualified” is shorthand for teachers processed by the normal credentialing apparatus of education schools and departments. The stress, Kline says, should be on “highly effective teachers.” He favors more charter schools — public schools operating outside union restrictions. He notes that when unions say these schools are “unfair” because “they work under different rules,” he tersely responds: “Precisely.” There are 14,000 more or less autonomous school districts. Kline knows that at this moment of waning confidence in the federal government, it is strange to assume that leverage from a combination of national tests and national money can efficiently improve the system. And it is stranger still to assume that even if this combination could do so, Washington has the knowledge to move all 14,000 in the right direction. In this Marine from Minnesota, the man and the moment have met.

Jails shouldn’t ignore drug withdrawal symptoms BY RON DUBOIS


A government pamphlet available from the National Institute for Drug Abuse says: “Throughout much of the last century, scientists studying drug abuse labored in the shadows of myths and misconceptions about the nature of addiction. When science began to study addictive behavior in the 1930s, people addicted to drugs were thought to be morally flawed and lacking in willpower. “Those views shaped society’s responses to drug abuse (the war on drugs/drug prohibition) treating it as a moral failing rather than a health problem. This led to an emphasis on punitive rather than preventative and therapeutic actions. Today, thanks to science, our views and our responses to drug abuse have changed dramatically. “Groundbreaking discoveries about the brain have revolutionized our understanding of drug addiction, enabling us to respond effectively to the problem.” The pamphlet, “Drugs, Brains, and Behavior: The Science of Ad-

impose probation and community service; the money-making drug courts; the imposition of unrealistic financial burdens on both addict and families as punishment for a disease as real as cancer change in favor of a rational public health approach? We can no longer be blind to the way the nation’s failed drug war treats citizens with the disease of addiction. What if the drugs used to treat diseases such as cancer, diabetes, etc., were, for emotional reasons, made illegal? The public no doubt would understand that people with cancer would want to obtain medication to prolong or save their lives. Most Americans would feel sympathy for those who broke the law in order to obtain an illegal substance. The public could see that these laws would foster crime. Yet the public has been unwilling to see that the same is true of drug prohibition. Although it accepts many medical conditions as diseases, it lags in understanding that addiction is also a disease. Recently the same message has

READERS FORUM diction,” states unequivocally, “As a result of scientific research, we know that addiction is a disease that affects both brain and behavior.” In keeping with NIDA’s statement that addiction is a disease, the Payne County Democratic Party, at its convention on April 2, adopted the following: “We will work to support treating drug misuse as a medical rather than a criminal issue. We support methadone maintenance in county jails and prisons as stated in Senate Bill 854.” When will the misplaced bigotry, stigma, hypocrisy, corruption; the laws that harass, imprison, fine and

come forth in a spate of excellent television documentaries, books and pamphlets, namely that addiction is an organic brain disease that is a health — not a criminal — issue. The director of the Indiana Consortium for Mental Health Services Research states that many people see mental disorders as something that never go away. When you attach a feeling of permanence to this, it justifies, in some ways, a person’s sense of “otherness” or less-than-humanness. The term “culture of otherness” and the word “stigma” mean the same thing. Although especially virulent in Oklahoma, the “culture of otherness” affects the history of nations. It is deadly because its victims are unaware they have it. Why should methadone maintenance in jails and prisons be supported nationwide? Because it is a death sentence not to. Stigma and the “culture of otherness” enter with the message, “It doesn’t matter, the world is better off without them.” Widespread stigma contributes


to Oklahoma’s No. 1 ranking in jail/ prison suicide in the nation. Equally disturbing is that the same ranking applies to the general population. My son died in the Payne County jail, where medical policy requires “cold turkey” methadone withdrawal. Such a policy is based on inadequate medical understanding that the pains of methadone withdrawal are so great that suicide becomes preferable to bearing the pain. Senate Bill 854, sponsored by Sen. James Halligan and Rep. Lee Denney, would correct this. Already passed by the Senate and House, it is back in the Senate for consideration of House amendments. If the bill is passed, my son’s death will stand for a major victory for justice. If not, the science of brain biology, substance use disorder, and enlightened health care for jail and prison inmates will be swept under the rug, awaiting future enlightened legislation. Ron duBois, of Stillwater, is a retired Oklahoma State University professor.


Save the Postal Service by ending home mail delivery BY LANE FILLER A recent story about Glenwood Landing, a small Long Island hamlet that has no home mail delivery, left me saying, “Aw, cute.” It’s like those tales we read of communities transforming their downtowns into North Poles for Christmas, making us think, “That town’s so adorable I want to pinch its bottom.” Why must people in Glenwood Landing pick up their mail at the post office? Because the community has fewer than the 750 addresses necessary to make up a route. There are more such places nationally than we would guess. But the sensible question isn’t why tiny-town folk don’t get catalogs, pizza coupons and credit-card offers delivered to their homes, it’s why do the rest of us? The Postal Service, theoretically self-supporting, will lose a non-theoretical $6.4 billion this year. There are many reasons for this, the biggest being workers driving around six days a week delivering fewer and fewer quaint pieces of paper to all of us. The idea for reform currently getting the most attention in Congress is ending Saturday delivery. One can only imagine the brainstorming session leading to that bold idea: Lackey: “Sir, email, electronic bill-paying and private parcel companies are redefining mail patterns in a way that will destroy every assumption crucial to the Postal Service’s 200-year-old business model.” Congressman: “No problem. Just reduce delivery frequency by one day a week. Oh, and make the uniform shorts

shorter. Sell the sizzle, I say.” The vast majority of American homes and businesses shouldn’t receive mail delivery at all. Most should pick up their stuff from P.O. boxes, as often as they wish. This would improve things in a number of ways: • It would stop the financial bleeding. The Postal Service has cut 100,000 employees in the past two years, yet it still has 572,000 — one of the largest civilian workforces in the world. It can’t shrink fast enough to break even without massive changes.

• As much as traditional mail volume has been reduced, it ought to decline even more. There’s no reason for us to receive most bills by mail, or pay them that way either. The same is true of the offers to erase debts owed to the IRS clogging up our boxes and the mail for our invisible roommate, “Occupant.” It’s an expensive and resource-intensive system that’s propped up by home mail delivery. Most of us would move all our dealings online if that delivery stopped. • It would vastly reduce car-

bon emissions by eliminating deliveries and, as I’ll show in a second, create a new source of revenue that would actually drive mail prices down. It probably makes sense to keep delivering mail to huge apartment and commercial buildings, because they’re essentially routes in and of themselves. But elsewhere, it’s silly.

There are two main arguments against moving most mail delivery to post office boxes: Having people go to the post office causes more driving than delivering the mail, and we’d have to build enough post offices to hold millions of new boxes. Both can be solved with one letter, reading: “Dear supermarket owners, In each community you serve, each of you that submits high enough bids will be allowed to build and maintain 5,000 post office boxes in your store. Cus-

tomers will come to pick up mail, and probably shop there an awful lot, so bid high. Yours truly, the United States Postal Service.” Because we go to the supermarket constantly, no trips will be added, and much driving to deliver mail will be eliminated. It’s hard to change these big institutions with the times, but not impossible. We just have to think outside the mailbox. Lane Filler is a columnist for Newsday.

Harden’s bench play fries the Nuggets early


KLAHOMA CITY — In the 1984 NBA draft, Michael Jordan was selected by the Chicago Bulls with the No. 3 pick overall. No team in any sport has gotten comparable value from a No. 3 Overall guy, and no team ever will. Also on the No. 3 Overall list are luminaries like Dominique Wilkins (1982), Kevin McHale (1980), Pete Maravich (1970)

and Carmelo Anthony (2003). Oklahoma City’s James Harden - taken No. 3 overall in the 2009 draft - may not

blossom into a Hall of Fame superstar, but he was exactly what the Thunder needed during Wednesday’s Game 2 of its Western Conference first-round playoff series against Denver. During a seven-minute span of the first half, an energetic Harden scored 14 points. As he cooked, so did the Thunder. Fourth-seeded Oklahoma City rolled to a 26-point lead (43-17). The Thunder relaxed, allow-

REC NOTES Strong wrestling start: In his first year to wrestle competitively, 6-year-old Caleb Phillips of Coweta already has produced a strong resume. Phillips added a first-place finish in the 6-under heavyweight division at the World Wrestling Championships in Reno, Nev., earlier this month. Phillips defeated Eric Cortez from Washington state 2-1 on a reversal with 18 seconds left in the match. The title was Phillips’ sixth this year to go along with his victories at the Tulsa Nationals, Tulsa Novice Nationals, Junior Open in Oklahoma City, Northeast Regionals and the Oklahoma state meet.

The novice wrestler for the Coweta Takedown Club has a season record of 81-1. State rugby champs: Jenks High School won its second consecutive rugby state championship last weekend with three victories in the state tournament. Jenks won the high school division with a victory over Canton and defeated Union’s under-19 team in the final match. Both Jenks and Union’s under-19 team will compete in a regional tournament April 30 and May 1 in Austin, Texas. Members of the Jenks team are Markus Streetman, Caleb Friend, TreyVonne Barre, Ralph Johnson, Josh Martin, Taylor Aston, Raisul Islam, Matt Mcpheters Chris Reilly, Brandon Williams, Ben Brownlee, Trevor Staub,

Tiger’s behavior still same BY NANCY ARMOUR


E STILL SWEARS. He still tosses clubs. His interviews, still, are clipped and smug — the few he gives, that is. This new version of Tiger Woods was supposed to be warmer, fuzzier, someone who showed more respect for the game and all those fans who’ve made him a very rich man. A year later, it appears as if the only thing about Woods that’s really changed is his ability to win. No one expected Woods to become Phil Mickelson when he returned to the game following the swiftest, sharpest downfall of a star athlete in recent memory. Taming his temper and ego was going to be as big a project as his swing change, and he’s having about as much luck. He’ll occasionally wave as he walks off the tee, make eye contact with fans here and there. He has stopped during pro-am rounds to pose for pictures. He’s even embraced Twitter, showing a charming personality in 140 characters or less. Those things are relatively easy to do, however. When it comes to basic course etiquette and being more accessible, he can’t seem to be bothered. He was fined for spitting on the green during the final round of the Dubai Desert Classic earlier this year. He used enough bad language during the Masters that CBS’ coverage probably should have come with a “parental discretion is advised” disclaimer. His interview with Bill Macatee after shooting a 67 on Sunday was needlessly testy, making his uncomfortable chat with Peter Kostis a year earlier look like a fireside chat. Even when he does talk, he sidesteps the most mundane questions about how his life has changed, and treats reasonable enquiries about

Brian Vickers had a lot of questions when he suddenly found himself in the hospital last year. Doctors discovered blood clots in the driver’s left leg and near his lungs, then a hole in his heart. He was able to overcome those health issues, but found himself facing another big question. And finding the answer to whether he wanted to resume his NASCAR Sprint Cup career wasn’t as easy as he expected. “At first, my focus was on living. And then it immediately turned to racing, and how do I get back in the race car?” the 27-year-old Vickers said. “Then I had to stop and think, do I want to go back in the race car? It seems like a silly question, but when you’ve gone through all that, you start looking at your whole life from a different perspective.” When Vickers was pondering his racing future, his first thought was that he wanted to come back because of the one goal he hadn’t accomplished — to win a Sprint Cup championship. “Then I realized it was more than that. If I came back it couldn’t just be about that. It had to be about something more,” he said. “I came back because I just love racing. I love going fast, I love being in race cars. I love what I do. If I never win a championship, I’ll still be happy that I came back. If I do win a championship, I’ll be even happier.” Vickers went to the hospital last May after having excruciating pain during a visit to Washington, D.C., though he had already experienced some symptoms in the weeks before. There had been a tingling and loss of feeling in his left

And, for better or worse, the commute will be short. “I think it’s a double-edged sword,” coach Vince Westbrook said when asked about the advantages of playing for a championship at home. “Sometimes I feel like I have more control over the guys when we are locked in a hotel room and we have complete control of their schedules. When you are here, there is opportunity, always, for a lot of distractions. And I worry about that, especially with such a young team as we have.” Bank on it that TU players love being at a sterling facility like the Case Tennis Center. “We know our courts pretty well and everything,” Arevalo said.

Watling said playing at home allows him to juggle tennis and academics -practice, shower, back to the books -- more efficiently. “When it’s here, it’s ideal,” he said. “I’m in my own world, so I can do whatever I want. I’ve got whatever I need.” What Aravelo and Watling really need is for Tulsa to win a C-USA crown and carry momentum into the NCAA Championship. Watling and Arevalo ad-

first $1 billion athlete. If Woods wants folks to shell out $49.99 for the Tiger Woods PGA Tour 12 video game or pay $230 for the privilege of wearing his TW Air Zoom golf shoes, he’s got to give something back. Otherwise, don’t be surprised if fans start drifting to some of the game’s other personalities — like the little girl standing behind the 18th green at Augusta National wearing a Rickie Fowler hat and Puma shoes. “If you are a billion-dollar brand, which he is, and at the top of your game, which he is, there is a limit to the amount of privacy that a person can reasonably expect,” Gordon said. This doesn’t mean Woods needs his own reality show. Or that he should become a Twitter fiend like Ian Poulter. Or that he can’t throw a fit in frustration on the course. Just rein it in a bit. After all these months retooling his game, Woods should put a little effort into retooling his personality, too.

C-USA men’s tennis championship Tournament format: Single elimination matches consisting of six singles and three doubles. Singles matches are two out of three sets. Doubles are an eight-game pro set. Matches are best of seven points, first to four points wins. The three doubles matches equal one point. Two doubles victories are needed to win the doubles point. What’s at stake: The winner gets an automatic bid to the NCAA Championship. ȕ Tournament schedule

On the bicycle rides he took that usually covered 60-70 miles, he was out of breath after only 15 miles. “Being young and healthy and stubborn, stubborn being probably the most prominent of the three, and a race car driver, you just think these things will go away,” Vickers said in a recent interview at Texas Motor Speedway. “A lot of times deep down, we don’t want to admit it, but we don’t want to go to the hospital because we’re afraid we’re going to be told we can’t race.” Vickers missed the final two-thirds of the Cup season last year after being hospitalized.

2011 Big 12 football schedules announced



What: Texas League baseball, Tulsa vs. Springfield Cardinals. Where: ONEOK Field, 201 N. Elgin Ave. When: 7:05 p.m. Broadcast: KTBZ am1430. Promotions: Thirsty Thursday/ Go Green Night — Servings of 16-ounce Pepsi products and 12-ounce servings of Bud and Bud Light, will be on sale for $1. Also, Drillers players and coaches will wear special green jerseys to help create awareness about recycling. Probable pitchers: Springfield — RHP Deryk Hooker (0-1, 7.71 ERA); Tulsa — RHP Rob Scahill (0-1, 6.10 ERA). On deck: Friday — vs. Springfield, 7:05 p.m. (fireworks)

Driller bits Good trip: Tulsa’s Ben Paulsen batted .400 on the Drillers’ 3-3 road trip that ended Tuesday, going 8-for-20. Also on the trip, Hector Gomez hit .320 and Darin Holcomb batted .303 with five RBIs. Scouting report: Ron Warner is in his fifth season as Springfield’s manager. Springfield’s top returning hitter, catcher Steven Hill, is on the disabled list. Hill batted .280 with 22 homers ande 86 RBis last season for Spingfield and also homered in his second major league at-bat for St. Louis. Drillers’ foes honored: Bishop Kelley graduate Dallas Keuchel was named the Texas League’s pitcher of the week for April 11-17. Keuchel, who pitches for Corpus Christi, allowed one run over eight innings to beat Tulsa on Saturday. San Antonio’s Jaff Decker was the player of the

in his secondary pitches at the appropriate time.” Field, who entered the opener of the four-game series at ONEOK Field batting .129, went 2-for-3, including his second homer of the season, an opposite-field drive into the Drillers’ bullpen in right-center. Last season, Field had a team-high 15 homers for Single-A Modesto as he batted .284 with 72 RBIs. “Tommy is a very good player,” Espy said. “He’s a terrific hitter. Maybe this game will help him settle in a little bit, and help him relax so that more of what we saw tonight will come out just through the natural process instead of trying to force it to happen.” Field had half of Tulsa’s four hits as the Drillers (6-7) were shut down by Nick Additon and Jose Rada, who combined for no walks and 11 strikeouts. Additon (1-0), a lefty who led Springfield in wins last year as he went 9-6 with a 4.43 ERA, needed 99 pitches to work eight innings as he struck out eight. He has not issued a walk in 19 2-3 innings this season. “He did kind of the same thing (as Riordan),” Espy said. “We had a couple of shots at him, but he was able to make the big pitch when he had to. We had situations where we just needed to make contact and we just didn’t do it.” In the sixth with Springfield leading 1-0, two fielding misplays gave the Drillers runners at the corners with no outs. Additon, however, struck out two hot hitters, Hector Gomez and Ben Paulsen, sandwiched around a pickoff of Tim Wheeler, caught between first and second. Gomez had a nine-game hitting streak snapped.

had one other runner reach scoring position but Field was stranded at second in the second inning. In the fourth, Paulsen and Wilin Rosario had consecutive singles, but Paulsen was thrown out trying for a double and Rosario was caught stealing. Springfield (6-7) took a 1-0 lead in the fifth as Alex Castellanos collected the first hit allowed by Riordan, stole second and scored on Niko Vasquez’s single off the leftfield wall. Matt Adams led off the seventh with a 425-foot homer over the right-field fence. Field matched it with his homer in the bottom of the inning. The Cardinals broke the game open with four runs in the ninth off Tulsa closer Adam Jorgenson, who walked three. Castellanos had a sacrifice fly, but it was Nick Derba, batting .190, who had the big blow as he greeted reliever Chris Malone with a three-run, two-out double. Rada closed out the Cardinals’ win by striking out all three Drillers in the bottom of the ninth.

TAUNTING: With taunting, it’s often an official’s judgement call. FROM B1

him place first. There’s a lot of subjectivity to it. “If you’re letting me vote, I’m voting ‘no.’ Mark it off after the touchdown and go from there. I would hate for one (official) who views things differently than another (official) to determine the outcome of a football game.” Consider what happened to Kansas State in last year’s Pinstripe Bowl. With 1:13 remaining, Adrian Hilburn caught a 30-yard touchdown pass to pull the Wildcats within 36-34 of Syracuse. He saluted a section of K-State fans in Yankee Stadium and was nailed with an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty. A routine 2-point conversion try from the 3 became an incomplete pass from the 18, and K-State fell 36-34. Players who are flagged

for taunting or excessively celebrating in the end zone after they have scored do not cost their teams points. But the point remains — when it comes to taunting, teams are often at the mercy of officials’ discretion. And with last week’s rule change, that discretion can be a lot more costly. “I am on board with taunting rules, behavioral rules on the football field, as long as they are called consistently,” K-State coach Bill Snyder said, “that you don’t have to guess how calls are going to be made during the course of a ballgame. The appropriate thing is for young people to learn, as the old adage goes, to act like you’ve been there before. “But every coach in the country talks to young people about playing with great energy and great enthusiasm and great emotion. And in order to do that, there has to be a display of emotion. It just has to be the right kind. The rules provide for that. They allow you to celebrate within yourself. “We just need consistency in regards to how those are called.”

Iowa State got a taste of the stricter policy in its spring game. “We had a kid pick up a fumble, ramble down the sidelines and at the 4-yard line decide to dive into the end zone,” coach Paul Rhoads said. “They threw the flag and marked it off from the 1 to the 16. And we had to take over and play offense from there. “That’s what it’s designed for, when a kid chooses to make a fool out of himself. I’ve got no problem with it if that’s indeed the case. But it can’t cross over and penalize a team for enjoying the game of football.” Until everyone figures out enforcement and adjusts to the new rule, it might be best to heed the words of Oklahoma State coach Mike Gundy. Or the example set by OSU Heisman winner Barry Sanders. “I would just say that young men need to take care of business,” Gundy advised. “Score a touchdown and hand the ball to an official, and we don’t have an issue.” Guerin Emig 918-581-8355

Rejoice Christian excited to join OSSAA O

WASSO’S Rejoice Christian is planning to double the size of its high school’s athletic department after being approved last month for membership in the Oklahoma Secondary School Activities Association. All of Rejoice’s athletic teams, except football, will be eligible for OSSAA postseason competition in the 2011-12 school year. The football team will be eligible when new districts are established for the 2012 and ’13 seasons. “We’re really excited,” Rejoice athletic director Wally Poplin said. “We’re a growing Poplin school, and joining the OSSAA was a natural move. Being in the OSSAA gives us long-term stability and credibility. This lets everyone know that we are here long term.” Rejoice currently competes in football, basketball, track and golf. The Eagles have hired former Summit Christian coach Jason Smith to start the baseball program that will begin competing next year.

Poplin said the Eagles plan on adding boys and girls soccer in the spring of 2013 and tennis and softball during the 2013-14 school year. Rejoice had 93 high school students last year, 125 this year and expects to have more than 150 next year, according to Poplin, who projects that the Eagles will compete in Class 4A in volleyball and 2A in basketball. “We know 2A is going to be really tough in basketball,” said Poplin, who coaches volleyball and boys basketball. “But our kids are excited because this is what they wanted to do.” Also, it appears that Rejoice will make the transition from eight-man football to 11-man as a Class A team. Poplin said that Rejoice is hopeful of building its own athletic facilities. He praised Owasso High School and athletic director Danny Hightower for their assistance and letting them use their facilities. “They don’t view us a competitor,” Poplin said. “Our relationship with them

Claremore’s Stewart takes Siloam Springs job Tim Stewart is leaving after three seasons as Claremore’s head boys basketball coach to take a similar position at Siloam Springs, Ark. Stewart resigned with a 53-21 record at Claremore. In 2010, he led the Zebras to the Class 5A semifinals in their first state tournament appearance since 1995. “Claremore is a great place to work and live,” Stewart said on Wednesday. “I had a great three years at Claremore and loved being here. It was tough to tell my players that I was leaving. “I would’ve been happy to stay here for a long time if this opportunity had not come up. It was a really stressful three weeks deciding whether I should stay or go, but the op-

couldn’t be better. They have been so good to us.” Before joining the OSSAAA, Poplin was Rejoice’s only full-time athletic staff member, but coaches will now be required to be fulltime employees. Poplin is in his second year at Rejoice. He didn’t expect to coach basketball again after stepping down as Sand Springs’ girls coach in 2007. His 30-year coaching career

portunity at Siloam Springs is just a little better.” Siloam Springs’ athletic director is former Owasso basketball coach Kerwin Dees, who is friends with Wally Poplin, who coached Stewart at Bixby. Siloam Springs has a similar enrollStewart ment as Claremore. Stewart was an assistant at Siloam Springs five years ago. “They’ve been to the state tournament in four of the past five years and won the state

also included stints at Union, Bixby and Owasso. He is enjoying the chance to get Rejoice’s athletics started in the OSSAA. “It’s fun to be on the ground floor of this,” Poplin said. “We want to do it and do it right.” Signings update: Edison’s Brooke Garner, who was the Class 5A state shot put champion last year, has signed with the University of

tournament in 2008,” Stewart said. “My wife, Julie, is going to teach science at the middle school there.” Stewart was the Tulsa World’s metro coach of the year in 2010 and also coached in the 2010 All-State Games. He previously was a head coach at Jay, Stilwell and Claremore Sequoyah. “It’s an exciting time, but a hard time,” Stewart said. “I love Claremore and I’m not going to disappear. We’re not going to be strangers. Siloam Springs is only an hour away from Claremore and I would like to schedule some games against teams from this area.” Claremore has not named Stewart’s replacement. — BARRY LEWIS, World Sports writer

Oklahoma. Also from Edison, Steven “Pooh” Hamilton has decided to play basketball for Northeastern A&M and Drew Craig will play major college basketball at Navy. Hamilton is one of the area’s top players but missed most of his senior season due to knee surgery. Craig is a Tulsa World All-State honorable mention selection. Bartlesville pitcher Zach Merciez has signed to play

baseball with Missouri State. Merciez also is one of the area’s top placekickers and could play football at MSU. Oil Bowl selections: Tulsa World metro player of the year Christian Hood of Union is among several area players selected for Oklahoma’s squad against Texas in the 74th annual Oil Bowl scheduled June 11 at Wichita Falls. Union teammate Richard Stanley also was selected. Other area players selected include Oologah’s John VanSingel and Brian Rawlinson, Broken Arrow’s Nick Hall and Chauncey Huddleston, Jenks’ Tate Beer, East Central’s Ashton Dandy, Catoosa’s Colton Nevel, Wagoner’s Jordan Robinson, Coweta’s Deontay Wilson, Muskogee’s Kyler Harris and Sallisaw’s Garrett Gladd and Seth Morgan. Sallisaw head coach Craig Benson will be the offensive coordinator. Hennessey hires Page: Hennessey named Brady Page as its new boys head basketball coach. Page has been an assistant for his father, David, at Pawnee and helped the Black Bears win three consecutive 2A state titles from 2008-10. Brady Page is a former Oklahoma Christian player and 2002 All-State selection who helped Yale win 2A state titles in 1999 and 2000.

Major League Baseball is taking over the Los Angeles Dodgers, a team financially paralyzed by the divorce of its owners. Commissioner Bud Selig says in a release Wednesday that he will appoint a representative to oversee the “business and the day-to-day operations of the Club.” Selig says he took action “because of my deep concerns regarding the finances and operations of the Dodgers.” His decision followed a report by the Los Angeles Times that owner Frank McCourt had arranged a $30 million loan from Fox, the team’s television partner. Selig says he will announce the new team head in the near future.

ST. LOUIS — Lance Berkman had three hits and two RBIs and the St. Louis Cardinals got four innings of one-hit relief in a 5-3 victory over the Washington Nationals, giving them a doubleheader split on Wednesday night. Laynce Nix homered and drove in two runs in Game 1 for the Nationals, who chased Jake Westbrook with a six-run third inning in an 8-6 victory. Jaime Garcia (3-0) allowed one earned run in five innings and Colby Rasmus got his fourth RBI of the day as St. Louis snapped Washington’s fourgame losing streak in the nightcap. Reserve third baseman Daniel Descalso had three nice defensive plays. Jason Motte and rookie Eduardo Sanchez combined for nine straight outs and stand-in closer Mitchell Boggs yielded a hit in the ninth before finishing for his first career save. Jordan Zimmermann (1-3) kept alive the Nationals starters’ streak of working at least five innings in every game, but gave up five runs in six innings in

the loss. Zimmermann allowed two earned runs or less in each of his first three outings. Berkman, the reigning NL player of the week, doubled in a run in the fourth and delivered a run-scoring single for the go-ahead hit in the fifth. Descalso charged to throw out Jerry Hairston Jr. on a grounder in the third and later in the inning snared Danny Espinosa’s bouncer down the line and threw him out. He foiled another slow roller on Jayson Werth’s run-scoring groundout in the fourth. The second half of a day-night doubleheader drew a paid attendance of 33,714 and a turnstile count of 28,536. Albert Pujols hit his fifth homer and Colby Rasmus also went deep in the opener. Rasmus had three RBIs, but also grounded into two of the Cardinals’ four double plays. Demoted closer Ryan Franklin retired four straight batters before Nix homered with one out in the eighth on a pitch that caused Franklin to recoil in disgust. Drew Storen allowed a walk while getting the last four outs for his second save in two chances. Espinosa had three hits, including a pair of infield singles.

Capitals take commanding series lead BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS NEW YORK — Jason Chimera scored 12:36 into the second overtime and the Washington Capitals completed a three-goal comeback to beat the Rangers 4-3 and push New York to the brink of elimination Wednesday night. New York scored three times in the second period to take a 3-0 lead and seemed poised to head back to Washington all even in the series for Game 5 on Saturday. But the top-seeded Capitals rallied to take a 3-1 series lead. Alexander Semin started Washington’s rally, and Marcus Johansson scored twice in the third to make it 3-3. The Rangers built their lead on a goal by Artem Anisi-

Ginobili, Spurs pull even with Memphis ASSOCIATED PRESS


SAN ANTONIO — Manu Ginobili scored 17 points in the All-Star’s return after missing Game 1 with an elbow sprain, and the San Antonio Spurs beat the Memphis Grizzlies 93-87 on Wednesday night to even the first-round series. Ginobili wore a thick sleeve to protect his right elbow but played as physically reckless as usual. He stayed questionable until just before tipoff, yet even with Ginobili, the top-seeded Spurs didn’t have it easy. Tim Duncan had 16 points and 10 rebounds for the Spurs. Former OSU Cowboy Tony Allen scored 15 points and Mike Conley had 13 for Memphis. Lakers 87, Hornets 78: An-

drew Bynum had 17 points and 11 rebounds, Lamar Odom scored 16 points, and the Lakers survived poor games from their two biggest stars to even their firstround playoff series with a victory over the Hornets in Game 2. Ron Artest added 15 points as the two-time defending champions rebounded from a stunning nine-point loss in the series opener with an improved defensive effort against Chris Paul, who still had 20 points and nine assists. With Odom’s outstanding performance leading strong bench play, the Lakers overcame the struggles of AllStars Kobe Bryant, who managed just 11 points, and Pau Gasol, who had eight.

much different than Game 1. Oklahoma City got a balanced performance, with James Harden providing 18 points and Serge Ibaka adding 12 points and 12 rebounds. Kendrick Perkins had 11 rebounds as the Thunder piled up a 41-19 edge on the boards by late in the third quarter. “We’ve done it all year,” coach Scott Brooks said. “You don’t win the games we’ve won just having one or two guys. I really believed those guys were going to step up and score some points.” Nene and Raymond Felton added 16 points apiece for the Nuggets. Denver made a brief rally to get within 86-76 after consecutive layups by Lawson and Felton with 8:33 to play, but Brooks called a timeout to get Westbrook back in the game and stop the comeback. Oklahoma City held Denver without a basket for 3 minutes to get started on a 14-5 run that put the game away. Westbrook hit a 3-pointer from the top of the key, then stuck out three fingers on each hand, blew on them and stuck them down to his sides as if holstering them. Durant let out a scream after leaping to slam down Daequan Cook’s missed 3-pointer on the next possession, and the celebration was on. But not for long. The Thunder are only halfway to their first playoff series win since relocating from Seattle, and

the third period put Anaheim ahead to stay and the Ducks beat Nashville to tie the Western Conference series 2-2. Game 5 is Friday night in Anaheim, with Ducks forward Bobby Ryan set to return from a two-game suspension. Perry also had two assists. Cam Fowler had a powerplay goal and had an assist, and Ryan Getzlaf, Brandon McMillan, Teemu Selanne and Saku Koivu added goals.

OKC calls up Vaden OKLAHOMA CITY — The Oklahoma City Thunder called up guard/ forward Robert Vaden from the Tulsa 66ers, the team announced on Wednesday. Vaden, the former UAB player who helped lead the 66ers to the D-League semifinals, averaged 16.8 points, 4.3 rebounds, 1.5 assists and 32.3 minutes in four postseason games for the 66ers. During the regular season, he averaged 10.4 points, 2.4 rebounds, 2.2 assists and 28.0 minutes in 45 games (17 starts). — FROM STAFF REPORTS

there’s more work to be done. “If come with the wrong mind set, not focused and not prepared right, it’ll be tough for us to win — especially in Denver,” Durant said. “But I don’t worry about that. I think we prepare right, our coaches do a great job, we go out and play hard. “If we do that, we give ourselves chance to win.” Oklahoma City has beaten the Nuggets four times in 16 days, sweeping regular-season games on each team’s court in a four-day stretch earlier this month and now protecting home court to start the playoffs. To stay alive, Denver must return the favor by winning four of five over an eight-day span. “They are really good. You expect them to play like that,” Denver’s Danilo Gallinari said. “But we just have to play better.” In a reversal from the first game, it was the Thunder who came out hot.

shots,” Kevin Durant said. “And he did.” Said Harden: “I spent extra time in the gym, preparing my shot, and I came out and performed. I tried to tweak my shot a little bit and come out aggressive.” From a player taken with the third pick overall, much more is expected than what Harden delivered on Sunday. In Game 1, he was on the Oklahoma City Arena court for 26 minutes. The Thunder’s sixth man was effective defensively and had four assists, but Harden is defined mostly as a scorer. Since the All-Star break, Harden has been the NBA’s leading bench scorer with a 15.8-point average. But during Game 1, the former Arizona State Sun Devil mustered only five points on five shot attempts. He seemed lethargic and disconnected. OKC won by four points because Durant and Russell Westbrook were lively and resoundingly connected, combining for 72 points. On Wednesday, Harden was a scorer while Serge Ibaka, Kendrick Perkins and Nick Collison were primarily responsible for a 54-31 rebound edge, and OKC did not need a 72-point showcase

Denver. During the 2009 NBA draft, Oklahoma City selected Harden when it could have had Tyreke Evans of Memphis. The Evans hypothetical is interesting. What if Thunder general manager Sam Presti had selected Evans instead of Harden? With the fourth pick overall, Evans went to the Sacramento Kings. Through two full seasons with the Kings, Evans made 125 starts and averaged 19.1 points. In two games against the Thunder this season, he averaged 26 points. Through two seasons in OKC, Harden has been a starter in five games. His scoring average is 11.1. Harden could be a Thunder starter, but coach Scott Brooks loves Thabo Sefolosha’s defense at the two-guard position. That results in a sixth-man Oklahoma City guard James Harden role for Harden and, to his credit, he averages 15.8 points off the bench for the never complains.

The Cotton Bowl can maintain relevancy by hosting high school games Oklahoma and Oklahoma State fans know all about the Cotton Bowl’s history. Yahoo! has a proposal to change it. The site’s high school sports blog suggests that the historic stadium consider hosting high school games as a way to keep it relevant. The Cotton Bowl still draws

an enormous crowd for the Red River Rivalry game between the Sooners and Longhorns. As long as the game is played there, that won’t change. But consider what else has happened to the stadium. The Cotton Bowl game spurned its home and moved to Jerry’s World in Arlington. The site made up a new bowl, originally called the

Dallas Football Classic before becoming the TicketCity Bowl. Last year’s Northwestern-Texas Tech showdown drew a crowd of 40,121 – less than half of the stadium’s capacity. I imagine Texas A&M-LSU would have drawn a slightly larger crowd. When I interned at The Dallas Morning News, I covered two college games at the stadium:

Grambling-Prairie View A&M and East Central-Texas A&M-Commerce. I’d never seen so many empty seats. So why not spice it up and bring the Cotton Bowl back to life? Pit powerhouses like Euless Trinity or Southlake Carroll or DeSoto against each other early in the season. Texas Stadium (may it rest in

peace) hosted a handful of high school games to kick off the 2008 season, including a few matchups with out-of-state schools. Why shouldn’t the Cotton Bowl do the same? I’ll take a Jenks-Dallas Skyline or Union-Allen showdown. I grew up hearing my dad’s stories of Joe Montana’s legendary chicken soup performance at the Cotton Bowl. OU and OSU

fans have their own memories of the stadium, too, I’m sure. I don’t know where beating a mediocre Northwestern team in a halfempty stadium ranks in Texas Tech history, but I’m guessing it’s not very high. ... — MATT BAKER Let us know what you think at

Spring classes provide outdoor workout venues

ould you rather strike a pose in the sunshine than go for a jog? Walking, running or biking aren’t the only workout options for Tulsans who venture out of the gym this spring. Outdoor exercise classes are also a draw for local workout buffs. The owners of Ascent Outdoor Apparel, 1325 E. 15th St., now offer rooftop yoga classes on Saturdays from 9 to 10:30 a.m. “With the rooftop above us, we thought it would a different thing to offer Tulsans,” said Ascent owner Philip Shain. “And there’s a good view. It makes sense. Anytime you can be doing something outside in nice weather, it makes it a little more enjoyable.” The store, which opened last fall, carries athletic wear, outdoor clothing and gear, and yoga wear, Shain said, so offering a yoga class seemed natural. “We’ve had a lot of people who’ve always had an interest in the idea of rooftop yoga. So we thought it would be a great fit on Saturdays with the (Cherry Street) Farmers Market,” he said. Local yoga instructor Jennifer Skaggs has already taught two classes of about 10 students. Classes cost $15, and participants will be offered a 10 percent discount for items purchased that day at Ascent or its sister store, Movement, which offers women’s athletic clothing and yoga gear. “It’s something we think we can grow into about a two-dozen person class,” Shain said.

Five cheap ways to eat healthy

Kale is a nutritional super-green and a bargain at under $1 a pound.  PAUL B. SOUTHERLAND/The Oklahoman

Grocery prices are going up, and the biggest increases sometimes seem to be for the healthier items. But you don’t have to sacrifice health for your budget. Here are five items that will feed your family at an inexpensive per-serving cost: • Eggs: For 13 to 18 cents per egg, they pack a lot of nutrition, vitamin D and lean protein. • Kale: It’s less than $1 a pound, and kale is considered a super-green nutritionally. • Whole-grain pasta: For 10 cents to 40 cents per serving, this is a great source of fiber, which will fill you up. • Apples: If you buy them bagged, each apple will cost roughly 40 cents. • String cheese: The individual stick runs 18 to 35 cents per serving, is portable and contains calcium. — MAUREEN KYLE, WKYC-TV, Cleveland

TU inducts Turnbo into Hall of Fame Bow ties — lots of them — were the style of the evening and a nod to the man of the hour when the University of Tulsa inducted longtime Tulsa public relations expert Steve Turnbo into its Communication Hall of Fame during a recent reception at the ONEOK Club at H.A. Chapman Stadium. Some 150 friends and colleagues, many wearing those iconic bow ties, turned out to honor Turnbo, whose name has been synonymous with public relations in this area for more than four decades. A 1967 TU graduate, Turnbo started his professional career at the university, serving as sports information director. After a few years working for local firms and starting his own company, he merged operations with Chuck Schnake and is now chairman emeritus of Schnake Turnbo Frank PR. “At TU, we are not only inspired by Steve Turnbo’s professional example, but also greatly aided and advanced by his generous friendship,” said TU President Steadman Upham. “That friendship takes several forms — including adjunct professor … adviser, donor and member of the TU board of trustees. In each of these roles, Steve presents a model of uncompromising standards and genuine dedication to craft and community.” Longtime friend Bill Hinkle, who also is a Tulsa public relations legend and an adjunct communication faculty member at TU, introduced Turnbo. Mark Brewin, chairman of the communication department, also spoke at the event. “My own career was not planned; it just sort of happened. Like most college athletes, I was looking to play pro baseball, but the fact that I could not hit a slider ended those dreams,” he said, thanking coach

Gene Shell for giving him a baseball scholarship. “My career in communications evolved, I believe, because of my respect for the written and spoken words. I have always had a fascination for how people use words to mold better understanding and mutual respect between an organization and its public,” he said. He concluded by thanking the “only … true hall of famer in my family,” his wife, Norma. The Hall of Fame award also carries with it the honor of the Ed Johnson Award, which recognizes the memory of the longtime TU journalism professor who led the department for nearly three decades. Turnbo attended TU on an athletic scholarship, having earned Junior College All-America honors in baseball at Northeastern A&M Junior College. After leaving the TU sports information office, he held positions with Advertising Incorporated and MidAmerica Federal Savings & Loan Association. He has won many awards including the Silver Addy Award from the Tulsa Advertising Federation as well as being honored by the College of Fellows for the Public Relations Society for America. A member of the TU board of trustees, he was named in 2001 as a TU Distinguished Alumnus, the university’s highest honor.

He has also had many leadership positions in numerous community organizations. Past inductees at the Hall of Fame event were Bob Losure, former anchor for CNN Headline News; TU trustee and World Publishing Company Chairman of the Board Bob Lorton and his wife, Roxana, a TU trustee; Ken Greenwood, former assistant professor and department head and broadcaster/station owner of KRMG, and his wife, Marian; Ken Neal, former Tulsa World editorial page editor; Becky Dixon, for-

mer co-host of ABC’s Wide World of Sports and president of Taylor Communications; Jenk Jones Jr., former publisher of the Tulsa Tribune, and his wife, Jerri; and Ed Dumit, associate professor emeritus of communication and former station manager of KWGS. Tulsa Mayor Dewey Bartlett attended, along with members of the TU board of trustees: President Dave Lawson and his wife, Leslie; Barbara Allen; Keith Bailey; Laurie Brumbaugh, national board president of the TU Alumni Association; Casey Cooper; Geordie Mat-

son, president of the Tulsa chapter of the TU Alumni Association, and his wife, Laurie; emeritus trustee Donne Pitman; Ross Swimmer and his wife, Margaret; and Bill Thomas and his wife, Susan. Members of the TU administration joining TU President Steadman Upham and his wife, Peggy, were Roger Blais; Kevan Buck and his wife, Sheila; Tom Benedikston; Jacqueline Caldwell; Bubba Cunningham; Susan Neal and her husband, Rick; Roger Sorochty; Dale Schoenefeld; Gale Sullenberger; and John Coward.

Role model




Mentor’s ‘little brothers’ become part of his family BY BRANDI BALL

World Scene Writer


miling like a proud papa, Tom Black recalls some of his most meaningful teaching opportunities as a volunteer mentor. After five years as Black’s “little brother,” Dallas Smith turned 18 and aged out of the Big Brothers Big Sisters program. “Are we still going to be friends?” the teenager asked Black. “Without hesitation I told him, ‘We’re going to be friends forever, Dallas. You are my family now,’ ” Black said. “Kids like Dallas just need it reinforced that all adults are not disconnected. It’s still hard for him to understand that I care about his future because I want to, not because I have to.” Black, a quality director for Bama Companies, has always thought of himself as a concerned citizen. But he never thought settling in to read an editorial on Oct. 16, 2005, would be life-changing. The editorial, written by the World’s Julie DelCour, led with a story of a little boy standing in line to visit his father in prison. An estimated 70,000 children have at least one parent behind bars, she wrote. “What will they be when they grow up?” she prompted. “Unless something changes, 70 percent of them will end up just like mom or dad, filling a prison cell at taxpayer expense in a state that cannot afford skyrocketing incarceration rates.” The column cited a source who said that by spending an hour a week mentoring a child, a difference could be made. It struck a chord with Black, who had already raised children of his own.

The words brought a real-life image to “it takes a village.” So he marched down to Tulsa’s Big Brothers Big Sisters office and signed up. He went through a background check and was matched with Smith, with whom he spent one to four hours a week for five years. They went to ball games. They went bowling. They fished. They got ice cream. A month ago, Black reentered the program and is now mentoring Dion Figures, a 14-year-old Tulsa boy.

Teenage despot is trampling her parents


Dear Amy: I have an almost-15-year-old daughter — that’s scary in itself, right? I understand that teenagers need to become independent and don’t want their parents in their lives (unless it’s to buy them something or take them somewhere), but how do I stop feeling so trampled on and distant from my daughter? She does OK in school, is “popular” (or at least has friends) and has a boyfriend. I’m just so sad that my only daughter seems to be pulling away from me, and the more I try to engage her or bring her back, the more she says it’s better not to talk about our distance because “all we do is argue.” My husband is very supportive of me, and he feels frustrated, too, but we have no real answers. What can you tell me? — Wondering Mom Dear Mom: Teenage girls sometimes act like despots of the household, and their moods rise and fall according to myriad conditions — many of which you will never know about. But they still need — and must have — limits, boundaries and consequences. Everyone wants to feel “heard.” And teenagers respond well when adults listen with interest and don’t comment or offer advice or suggestions. Ask your daughter her opinion about things — whether it’s an issue in homeroom or an event in the wider world. And even if she doesn’t answer or is snide or rolls her eyes and walks away, she will


Ask Amy askamy

remember being asked, and she may come to you two hours later with an answer. You cannot be your daughter’s best friend right now. But you can — and should — be her mother. No matter what she is going through, she should never “trample” you or your husband. You may feel ignored or taken advantage of, but you will have to learn to overlook some of the obnoxiousness, focus on the positive stuff, pick your battles with great care and lay down reasonable consequences when she is disrespectful. You can say to yourself (and to her), “Well, I was a teenage girl once, too. And sometimes you just have to put up with your parents.” The boyfriend issue gives me pause. If your daughter is dating, this boy should be a regular presence at your dinner table. I highly recommend the book, “Get Out of My Life, But First Could You Drive Me and Cheryl to the Mall: A Parent’s Guide to the New Teenager,” by Anthony Wolf (2002, Farrar, Straus and Giroux).

Pelvic prolapse a common condition with few remedies


Gott, M.D. Newspaper Enterprise Association

Dear Dr. Gott: I have reached my 79th birthday and have been diagnosed with pelvic prolapse, affecting mostly my bladder. However, my OB-GYN describes it as bladder, bowel and cervix. Owing to my heart skipping occasionally, I went through an EKG and all stress tests and blood testing preparing me for surgery. I was given approval for the surgery until my OB-GYN told me that she

would not perform the surgery because she didn’t want to put my body through that much stress. A pessary was ruled out because it did not work for me. I am now asking your advice on whether I should get a second opinion or do nothing? Dear Reader: Pelvic prolapse is a weakening of the muscles and ligaments of the pelvic organs with the end result being that the organs slip downward out

of their normal position. This is a rather common condition that affects almost 50 percent of all women who have had children. Symptoms include loss of bladder and bowel control, an increased sensation of urgency to urinate with a sensation of being unable to fully empty the bladder, repeat infections and excessive vaginal discharge. Menopause causes a decrease in estrogen levels in a woman’s

I continue a series on holding up a winner. Hold-up plays are used at notrump to shut out a defender’s long suit, but are also helpful at suit contracts. West would have been mangled at 2NT doubled; South’s decision to run to three spades was odd. When West led the queen of hearts against four spades, South took the ace, unblocked his king of diamonds and led a club to dummy’s jack. South next threw a heart on the ace of diamonds and led a trump to his queen, but West took the king and led a second heart. When East won and led a diamond, South was doomed: He ruffed with the 10, but West discarded and got two more trump tricks. South prevails if he ducks the first heart. He wins the next heart, ruffs his last heart in dummy and leads a trump, losing two trumps and a heart. If instead West shifts to trumps at Trick Two, he can stop the heart ruff in dummy. But South can make his game when the club finesse wins, discarding a heart on the ace of diamonds.

body that results in a weakening of vaginal muscles. Estrogen-replacement therapy can restrengthen those muscles; however, this therapy is not appropriate for all women. The next step might be physical therapy to include either biofeedback or electrical stimulation — then surgery. The procedure depends on what specific type of prolapse a person has. I can only suggest you return




to your surgeon with a list of questions. Bring a trusted family member with you who might have a different perspective on the situation. Then, if you remain dissatisfied, ask for a referral to another specialist for a second opinion. Bring all your test results when you go.

dining out, according to the Restaurant Association. The CDC and other health experts have linked the nation’s obesity rates to eating out. And being overweight is a driver for chronic diseases and high health-care costs. “Trying to find the healthy options when dining out can be more difficult than you think. Even a salad can be loaded with hidden fat and sodium,” said U.S. Sen. Tom Harkin, D-Iowa, who coauthored the menu-labeling provisions in the health-care

law. Washington, D.C.-based author and nutrition expert Hope Warshaw encourages diners to speak up and ask restaurants to provide healthier options or nutrition information. “Having healthy choices in restaurants is not just the responsibility of the restaurants,” said Warshaw, a registered dietitian and author of “Eat Out, Eat Right,” an eating-out guide now in its third edition. “People asking for healthier items is what is

going to drive this.” But studies show that even when consumers know the calorie count, they do not necessarily make better choices. Sample studies by the NDP Group, an Illinois-based consumer-market company, showed that the impact of printing calories on menus was minimal. The studies also showed that diet-conscious diners also looked for terms like “fresh,” “natural” and “organic.”

hydraulic fracturing, a method for natural gas extraction, is causing problems for groundwater. Yet Pickens and Kennedy are strongly aligned on the “Pickens Plan” to encourage the conversion of transportation fleets to compressed natural gas and cut the need for imported oil. “You guys have a lot in common,” Hargis joked at one point during the joint Q-and-A. More than most people might think, if Wednesday’s conference was any indication. Pickens conceded some of Kennedy’s points on forced

pooling of gas well pads to reduce the landscape footprint and the belief that the transition to incentivize clean energy technologies can revitalize the American economy. “We don’t agree on everything, but we agree on America,” Pickens said. “I want it clean, you want it clean.” Kennedy pulled no punches despite giving his speech in the heartland of American oil and gas exploration.

The Nasdaq composite index had its biggest one-day jump in six months, and the Dow Jones industrial average closed at its highest level in nearly three years. Intel rose 7.8 percent, the most of the 30 companies in the Dow average, after the chip-maker reported that its income rose 29 percent in the first quarter because of rising demand for personal computers.

Investors drive home sales up 3.7 percent in March Investors lifted U.S. home sales last month, plunking down cash to grab cheap homes at risk of foreclosure. But

purchases made by first-time home buyers fell, a troubling sign for the weak housing market. Sales of previously occupied homes rose in March to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 5.1 million, the National Association of Realtors said Wednesday. That’s a 3.7 percent increase from the February pace, but far below the 6 million homes a year that economists say represents a healthy market. Foreclosures or short sales — when the lender agrees to accept less than what is owed on the mortgage — rose to 40 percent of all purchases. And deals paid for entirely in cash accounted for 35 percent of all resold homes. The Realtors group says that’s the biggest percentage since it has been tracking all-cash sales. — THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Well fluids spill at natural gas site • The Oklahoma Citybased firm blames equipment. BY MICHAEL RUBINKAM

The outside of a natural gas drill site owned by Chesapeake Energy in Leroy Township, Pa., is shown on Wednesday. A blowout at a natural gas well contaminated a stream and forced the evacuation of seven families. 

Associated Press

A blowout at a natural gas well in rural northern Pennsylvania spilled thousands of gallons of chemicallaced water Wednesday, contaminating a stream and leading officials to ask seven families who live nearby to evacuate as crews struggled to stop the gusher. Oklahoma City-based Chesapeake Energy Corp. lost control of the well site near Canton, in Bradford County, around 11:45 p.m. Tuesday, officials said. Tainted water flowed from the site all day Wednesday, though by the mid-afternoon, workers had managed to divert the extremely salty water away from the stream. No injuries were reported, and there was no explosion or fire. “As a precautionary measure, seven families who live near the location have been temporarily relocated until all agencies involved are confident the situation has been contained. There have been no injuries or natural gas emissions to the atmosphere,” Chesapeake spokesman Brian Grove said in a statement. Chesapeake said a piece of equipment failed late Tuesday while the well was being hydraulically fractured, or fracked. In the fracking process, millions of

gallons of water, along with chemical additives and sand, are injected at high pressure down the well bore to break up the shale and release the gas. State environmental regulators took water samples from the unnamed tributary of Towanda Creek on Wednesday but did not report a fish kill.

and the media. “In this environment, it’s important that we continue replacing our fleet.” In 2011, American is retiring 25 of its 20-year-old MD80 aircraft in a fleet renewal plan that calls for replacing them with fuel-efficient Boeing 737-800s. Along with its purchase of Boeing 777-300 aircraft for international routes, the 737-800 aircraft purchases are part of $1.7 billion in 2011 capital expenditures, said AMR President Tom Horton. “These are very long fleet decisions we are making,” Horton said. “The 777-300 has 7 percent to 8 percent better unit costs than the 747400.

he worried that fracking fluids will ruin his drinking water well, several hundred yards from the blown-out well. His well and several other private ones around the Chesapeake gas well were also being tested for contamination. “The biggest thing is the footprint on the environment,” he told WNEPTV. “Well, obviously this is a big footprint.” Katy Gresh, a spokeswoman for the state Department of Environmental Protection, said reports from the scene indicate that fracking wa-

ter was gushing from the wellhead, pooling on the pad, then escaping containment. “Discharge of fluids to the unnamed tributary appears to be stopped,” she said. Officials advised the farmer on whose land the well was drilled that his cattle could no longer drink from the stream. Francis “Skip” Roupp, deputy director of the Bradford County Emergency Management Agency, said a cracked well casing is suspected as the cause of the blowout.

vironment,” he said. “That’s a false choice. It loads the cost of our national prosperity on the backs of our children.” Pickens, who made his initial billions as an oilman with Mesa Petroleum, may not go that far. However, he has invested millions in wind energy and the campaign to eliminate as much as 2.5 million barrels of imported oil per day by converting 18-wheelers to CNG. His Pickens Plan, backed by 1.7 million online supporters and a precursor to the natural gas incentive

bill recently introduced into Congress, now has close to 200 bipartisan Capitol Hill co-sponsors, he noted. However, the NatGas Act has bogged down in Congress before, which Pickens conceded but would not allow to dampen his enthusiasm. He predicted that the latest bill will pass the House within 30 days, clear the Senate by late summer and be signed into law by the end of the year. Pickens counted President Barack Obama as one of his supporters, although Obama had

vestments.” American has five 777300ERs that are scheduled for delivery in 2012 and 2013, company executives said. However, the company is keeping a close watch on capacity, announcing its plans to reduce its fourth quarter capacity by 1 percent. AMR, which includes American Eagle Airlines, American’s regional airline affiliate, operates more than 700 aircraft. A series of natural and man-made calamities in the first quarter cost AMR significantly, said Chief Financial Officer Bella Goren. Winter storms in February, the Japan tsunami and a fuel farm fire at American’s hub at Miami International Airport had a $100 million revenue impact on the company, Goren said. Asked by an analyst why investors should have confidence in AMR going forward after it has lost more than $10 billion in the past decade, Arpey said a convergence of costs and revenue will improve the company’s position in the industry in the years ahead. Because American is the

only major U.S. carrier that has not filed for bankruptcy protection, its labor costs are higher than its peers, Arpey said. American is in the midst of contract negotiations with its unionized mechanics, pilots and flight attendants. “Nineteen of 30 major (union) contracts industrywide are amendable,” Arpey said. “Almost the entire industry is in negotiations as we speak or they will be very soon. In terms of results, if the U.S. taxpayers are funding your pension benefits (at bankrupt airlines), your results are going to appear better.” In the past four months, AMR has spent $170 million on retiree pension benefits, Goren said. “We intend to work constructively with our unions to close the (wage and benefit) gap,” Arpey said, “and we do think there will be a convergence of costs and that our results will improve.” AMR shares closed Wednesday at $5.64, down 6 cents.

AES’ $3.5B deal for DPL continues utility tie-ups BY JONATHAN FAHEY Associated Press

NEW YORK — AES Corp. will buy the regional power company DPL Inc. for about $3.5 billion in cash, continuing the steady consolidation of the utility industry. Utilities have been trying to get bigger to help them spread the costs of making their power plants cleaner in response to tightening environmental regulations on emissions. Also, low power prices and weak demand have cut into utility revenue and profits. Companies such as AES that sell wholesale power at market prices have been especially vulnerable. They’re attempting to increase the number of customers in regulated markets, where power prices are less volatile. AES, which operates in 29 countries, said Wednesday it will pay $30 a share for DPL,

an 8.7 percent premium to its closing stock price of $27.59 Tuesday. DPL owns Dayton Power and Light, a regulated electric utility that serves more than 500,000 retail customers in West Central Ohio. “We are concentrating our growth efforts in a few key markets, including the U.S. utility sector,” AES President and CEO Paul Hanrahan said. Combinations like AES and DPL can lead to lower power prices for customers by lowering borrowing costs and allowing the combined utilities to more efficiently run plants and buy fuel and equipment, analysts say. They generally result in job losses, however. And consumer advocates worry that bigger companies have more sway with regulators to keep prices high. In unregulated markets these mergers can reduce competition and lead to high-

er rates, advocates say. Analysts say the deal allows AES to make better use of cash on its balance sheet that has been earning a scant return. DPL, which generates almost all of its power with coal, has already invested in equipment to control emissions from its plants in anticipation of coming pollution regulations. With the equipment paid for, DPL should have strong cash flow in the coming months. That cash flow may allow AES to begin paying a dividend, like most other utilities. But there is some concern that DPL’s cash flow may dwindle. Under its rate deal with Ohio regulators, DPL can charge customers rates that are now 20 percent to 30 percent above the market price for power. That deal expires at the end of 2012, and analysts expect DPL earnings to drop sharply in the following year.

FYI: BUSINESS ONEOK Partners ups payout by 1 cent Unitholders of ONEOK Partners LP will receive a first-quarter cash distribution of $1.15 per unit, the Tulsa-based natural gas processing and transportation partnership announced Wednesday. The distribution is payable May 13 to unitholders of record at the close of business April 29. The fourth-quarter 2010 payout was $1.14 per unit. In October, ONEOK Partners reported it would increase the distributions by 1 cent per quarter this year and between 5 percent to 10 percent annually in 2012 and 2013. CEO and Chairman John Gibson cited the $2 billion in capital investments completed in 2009 and up to $2.1 billion in growth projects planned

through 2014 as drivers for the increased cash payouts.

Bank of America to spin off unit Bank of America Corp. is planning to spin off its private equity business by the end of the second quarter. The Charlotte, N.C.-based bank inherited the private equity business, BAML Capital Partners, when it acquired the brokerage Merrill Lynch in 2008. BAML Capital Partners, which manages $5 billion in assets, will be spun off into a separate company that will be run by its existing management. Bank of America has been winding down business units that use the bank’s money to make investments. The move has been in response to new federal regulations. — FROM STAFF AND WIRE REPORTS

DTAG: A merger would still help Avis compete with Hertz, one analyst points out. FROM E1

“It’s in the eyes of the beholder or suitor,” said Jake Dollarhide, CEO of Longbow Asset Management Co. in Tulsa. “Avis values Dollar Thrifty about the same as they did six or seven months ago. “It’s a matter of, ‘How do we make our brand stronger?’ It’s not so much about the price with Avis. What hasn’t changed is that they want to capture those (Dollar Thrifty) assets. They want the Dollar Thrifty brand to be part of Avis so they can compete with Hertz and Enterprise.” Enterprise is the largest U.S. rental car operator. Hertz is the second-largest rental car company, Avis Budget is third, and Dollar Thrifty is the fourth-largest

U.S. rental car operator. Fred Russell, CEO of Fredric E. Russell Investment Management Co. in Tulsa, said any suitor willing to pay $67 a share for Dollar Thrifty is making two assumptions. “First, Avis Budget is calculating that a Dollar Thrifty acquisition would cut out $150 million to $200 million in duplicate costs — fleet costs, software system costs and, especially, negotiating costs to buy fleet vehicles,” Russell said. “Second, you’re making an assumption that the economy will continue to strengthen, people will continue to travel and to operate rental cars. If you’re comfortable in those assumptions, you will feel good about buying a company whose stock only a few months ago was in the low-$40s.” Avis Budget shares closed Wednesday at $19.16, up 87 cents or 4.76 percent. Earlier in the day, Avis Budget’s shares hit a 52week high price of $19.21. D.R. Stewart 918-581-8451

Housing market still needs federal support A

lot of discussion in the real estate industry these days centers on proposed changes regarding government-sponsored enterprises. As the debate continues to heat up over the next several months and possibly the next couple of years, it’s important to understand where we came from and where we’re headed. Fannie Mae was started in 1938 as part of the New Deal, and Freddie Mac was created in 1970 to add competition to the secondary market for mortgages. Fannie Mae was designed to buy mortgages mainly from banks, and Freddie Mac was designed to buy mortgages issued by thrifts — savings & loans and smaller banks — on the secondary market, bundle them and sell them to investors on the open market. This was to help bring about the option of longer-life loans without balloon payments making it difficult to pay off mortgages. As the market changed and the

ing Finance Agency, an action that was described by former Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson as “one of the most sweeping interventions in private financial markets in Sheryl Chinowth decades.” Why is all of this so important? Housing creates jobs. Housing accounts for more than 15 percent of the Gross Domestic Product, or mortgage demands for Freddie $2 trillion. For every 1,000 home Mac and Fannie Mae began to drop, sales this year over last, about 500 practices were implemented that new jobs are added to the economy. were riskier. Yet, this is only one And jobs are critical to the nation’s factor that led to the systemwide recovery. breakdown. With Congress debating the govThe mortgage industry’s lax ernment’s role in residential mortunderwriting requirements allowed gages with regard to Fannie Mae for less-secure mortgages, and the and Freddie Mac, it’s important to focus became the up-front profits know the ideal marketplace is one of selling these pooled mortgages. in which individual home buyThrough securitization, the loan ers transact business with private originators were separated from the lenders. However, history reminds risk of the loans they were writing. us the federal government plays All of this played a large part in an important role in regulating the mortgage banking crisis and led lenders to ensure flow of capital. In to the takeover of Fannie Mae and tough times when private financing Freddie Mac by the Federal Houswill not or cannot participate in the


home loan market, the government needs the ability to provide interim financing. Without some form of government-sponsored enterprises, we could end up with no money to fund home purchases, and the recovery in housing would be difficult if not impossible. To help create a level playing field for consumers, we need a government-sponsored enterprise with the ability to expand and rescind according to the needs of the marketplace, with stronger underwriting standards and practices that would help ensure the quality of the collateral for investors. Without a secondary mortgage market, private lenders would likely do away with the 30-year, fixedrate mortgage, a financial product that was one of the main reasons Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae were implemented. Home loans could become short-term, adjustable-rate mortgages only, putting the interest rate risk mainly on the buying

public instead of larger institutions such as insurance companies and pension funds that are equipped to manage this risk. The 30-year, fixed-rate mortgage has provided generations of Americans the opportunity to own their homes and build wealth through that investment ownership. So do we need a secondary market, government-secured program? It would seem history has told us yes, we do, and recent history tells us reforms are needed in these programs.

The May issue of ShopSmart magazine, by Consumer Reports, features 10 “Super Couponers’ Top Tips.” Check store policy: Some stores offer double or even triple the face value of coupons (usually with 99-cent limits) but only on certain days. Find out which days and plan your shopping around those times. Save coupons by sale dates: Use weekly sales fliers to match coupon deals. Also track the date of store sales to get cents off for discounted items. Take your entire coupon file with you, because many stores don’t advertise all deals. Midmonth inventory: Many coupons expire at the beginning or end of the month. Take time at midmonth to see which coupons in your stash need to be used as soon as possible. Track price cycles: Items usually go on sale at regular intervals. Keep a log of the price of items you buy most often, so that you know how much they usually cost, when they will likely go on sale and when a sale is really a good deal. Watch at checkout: Cashiers sometimes neglect to properly scan all coupons and store-loyalty cards. When you accidentally picked up the wrong product size, you waste a coupon. No store brands: ShopSmart’s tests show store brands to be just as good if not better than national brands. But with the right combination of sale price and coupon savings, the national brand is cheaper. “Stack” coupons to maximize savings: Some stores include additional coupons in their weekly circulars and in the email newsletters sent to loyalty-card holders. You can use a store coupon on top of a manufacturer’s coupon for more savings. Shop stores accepting competitor coupons: Some stores do, because they want your business. Make one store your go-to spot and take other stores’ exclusive coupons with you when you shop. Sign up for loyalty cards at stores in your area to get insider deals. Use trial-size coupons: Unless a coupon stipulates you can’t, using a coupon to buy trial sizes of items could make them free. Keep expired coupons: Your store may still accept them, so don’t be afraid to ask.

BP’s quarterly net income

Investors still aren’t sure they trust BP. But countries with oil and gas do. It has been a year since the explosion of a rig that BP operated in the Gulf of Mexico. The disaster sent an estimated 206 million gallons of oil into the Gulf, the biggest spill in U.S. history. Since then, BP has reached agreements to drill for oil or gas off the coasts of Angola, Australia, India and Russia. Financial analysts believe that BP should be able to continue to find and develop more oil. “BP has shown that it remains a highly regarded company,” says Pavel Molchanov, an analyst at Raymond James. Analysts say that’s one reason BP’s stock is worth buying. Another: It’s cheaper than other oil giants. BP

BP has estimated the spill will cost it at least $40.9 billion. That number could grow by $13 billion if courts decide BP acted with gross negligence. But BP is also continuing a restructuring that began last year that is making it more profitable. It’s selling low-margin and poorperforming assets around the globe. “If you are willing to buy the stock and hold it for a while, you will be happy at the end of three to five years,” says Phil Weiss of Argus Research.

Marlboro slips but Altria gains

Altria Group’s earnings rose 15 percent during the first three months of the year on lower costs and higher prices. But its top-selling Marlboro brand lost market share. Marlboro still dominates the U.S. cigarette market with a 42.2 percent share. But that was down 0.5 point from a year ago, the first drop in nearly two-years. The company noted that it had product launches in 2010 that gave its sales volume and market share a blip higher. Altria said its other brands like Virginia Slims, Parliament and Basic AP

also lost market share in the justended quarter. Altria sells cigarettes in the U.S. A separate company, Philip Morris International, sells Marlboro and other brands abroad. CEO Michael Szymanczyk says Altria is under pressure from competitors’ cheaper brands, like Reynolds American’s Pall Mall and Lorillard’s Maverick. Marlboro sold for an average $5.70 a pack during the first quarter. The cheapest cigarettes sold for an average $4.21, Altria says.

A Boeing Co. employee works on the wing of a Boeing 787 Dreamliner at the company’s manufacturing facility in Everett, Wash. Federal regulators say Boeing illegally retaliated for a 2008 union strike by adding a non-union assembly line in South Carolina for the Dreamliner.

New AT&T iPhone contracts take plunge in first quarter BY PETER SVENSSON Associated Press

NEW YORK — AT&T Inc. used to draw in subscribers by the millions with the lure of the iPhone. Now, it’s mostly selling iPhones to its own customers, who are trading up from other AT&T phones. The drop in recruitment from other carriers was made clear Wednesday as AT&T said it added just 62,000 net new subscribers on contract-based plans in the first quarter, a record low. In many previous quarters, the number was above a million. The difference may be that Verizon Wireless started selling the iPhone on Feb. 10, ending three and half years of exclusivity for AT&T. AT&T said it activated 3.6 million iPhones, up from 2.7 million a year ago. Subscribers new to AT&T accounted for 23 percent of the iPhones, down from about 33 percent a year ago. Yet the Dallas-based company said the percentage of iPhone subscribers cancelling service was the same as last year. That means Verizon Wireless doesn’t seem to be pulling a lot of iPhone subscribers from AT&T, as some had feared. Chief Financial Officer Rick Lindner said the effect of the Verizon iPhone was “significantly less than many in the financial community and the media had expected. And frankly, the impacts were less than we had expected.” Analysts say the full impact of the Verizon iPhone will take time to be felt because smart phone subscribers are tied up by two-year

Runoff vote coming for airport screeners’ union BY SAM HANANEL Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Airport screeners will have to wait a few more weeks before finding out which union will represent them in collectivebargaining talks with the government. After a six-week election, neither of the two unions vying to represent 44,000 workers at the Transportation Security Administration received a majority of votes cast when federal officials tallied the results on Wednesday. The vote came after TSA head John Pistole agreed in February to grant screeners limited collective-bargaining rights for the first time since the agency was formed a decade ago.

The Federal Labor Relations Authority says it will hold a runoff election to decide a winner between the top vote-getters. The American Federation of Government Employees received 8,369 votes, or 43 percent, and the National Treasury Employees Union won 8,095 votes, or 41 percent. The choice of no union received 3,111 votes, or 16 percent. To win outright, one of the unions had to win 50 percent plus one vote of all votes cast. It was the largest union election for federal workers in history. The screeners who X-ray bags and shuttle airline passengers through rope lines had been among the few federal workers without union rights. Republicans have object-

ed vigorously to the decision granting collective bargaining rights, arguing that unionizing would jeopardize national security. But Democrats and labor leaders say union rights have not hampered the effectiveness of federal security workers at other agencies. And Pistole says bargaining rights will help improve low morale at the agency. Pistole’s decision allows for negotiation on a narrow range of issues including work shifts, transfers, vacation time and awards, but specifically prohibits bargaining on security-related matters like deployment, job qualifications, testing or discipline. Screeners also would be strictly prohibited from striking or engaging in work slowdowns.

contracts. But Lindner said he doesn’t expect the rate of iPhone subscribers leaving AT&T to rise this year. Verizon Communications Inc., which controls Verizon Wireless through a 55 percent ownership stake, reports its first-quarter results Thursday morning. AT&T’s net income rose 39 percent to $3.41 billion, or 57 cents per share, for the January-March period, up from $2.45 billion, or 42 cents per share, a year ago. The earnings matched the

average estimate of analysts polled by FactSet. The earnings increase was mainly due to a reduction in taxes. AT&T’s operating income fell nearly 3 percent as expenses grew faster than revenue on the wireless side, and landline revenue continued its long slide. Wireless expenses rose in part because of the cost of issuing new phones to former subscribers of Alltel and Centennial Communications that AT&T have taken over.

Apple earnings nearly double, helped by record sales of iPhones BY PETER SVENSSON Associated Press

NEW YORK — Apple Inc. on Wednesday reported another exceptional quarter, nearly doubling its net income and far exceeding analyst estimates on the strength of the seemingly unstoppable

iPhone. However, sales of Apple’s big new product, the iPad tablet computer, came in below expectations. The second version of the tablet launched three weeks before the end of the quarter, and manufacturing constraints may have prevented Apple from selling

more of them. Apple said net income for its fiscal second quarter, which ended in March, was $5.99 billion, or $6.40 per share, up 95 percent from $3.07 billion, or $3.33 per share, a year ago. Analysts polled by FactSet were expecting earnings of

$5.37 per share. Revenue was $24.7 billion, up 83 percent from $13.5 billion a year ago. Analysts were expecting $23.4 billion. The results were lifted by the record sale of 18.65 million iPhones, millions more than analysts had expected. Verizon Wireless started sell-

ing the phone in the quarter, ending AT&T Inc.’s threeand-half-year period of being the only U.S. iPhone carrier. In most other countries where the iPhone is available, it’s sold by more than one phone company. Earlier Wednesday, AT&T reported strong iPhone sales,

as it apparently continued to upgrade many existing subscribers even in the face of competition from Verizon. Apple shares rose $8.26, or 2.4 percent, to $350.67 in extended trading, after the release of the results. They rose 1.4 percent in regular trading.

Condition, maker, sweeten prices for cookie jars

Tribune Media ServiceS Q: My unusual cookie jar was, I think, sold in the 1940s by Sears. Any info on it? What is it worth? A: Imagine a round head with white glaze, a painted face, and a red beret as the jar lid, tilted to one side. Because of its moon-like face, the cookie jar is popularly known as “Moon Girl.” Chicago dealer Mercedes Di Renzo Bolduc,, buys and sells cookie jars and retro kitchen collectibles. She told us that who made this cookie jar is up for debate. Collectors first pegged it as an RRP (Robinson Ransbottom Pottery) product. Then the author of a guide to cookie jars IDed it as American Bisque Pottery. The battle about who made it still rages. At this point, it is commonly dubbed an RRP/Bisque jar. Bolduc has sold the jar in the past and she still buys it. Back in the day when Andy Warhol made cookie jars hot (he was a major collector), retail value was around $400. Today, one in excellent condition runs about $250. A jar in not-so-great condition, such as the one seen in a photo sent, might bring $150. Remember, that’s retail. You’d get half that or less when selling to a dealer.

Typically, the lids on cookie jars break first. This jar seems to have an original lid. That’s a plus. Q: Clearing out my dad’s house, we found a collection of 150-200 Hummel figurines, collector plates, and bells. How do we begin selling? A: I feel your pain. It is overwhelming to have a mass of strange stuff dropped in your lap at a time when you’re hardly equipped to deal with more stress. Forgive me while I climb on my soapbox once more: Readers, are you paying attention? Please make plans for your collections before you go to the big antiques market in the sky. Don’t burden your heirs. When/if they don’t value your collection, it’s just stuff. I urge you to have The Stuff talk while you can. Photograph or videotape what you have, list and identify items, including age, maker, and possible market value, and add suggestions on how to sell or dispose of it all. Put the info in an agreed-on place. Then rest assured that you’ve done your part to ease a future problem. That said, the reader has all those Hummels to handle. Yes, the market is not where it was when the pieces were bought. And yes,

cheap, as box lots. AUCTION ACTION: An early German mechanical duck that sold for $7,495 last year at Julia Auctions in Maine dated from 1910-1920. The almost 21-inch-high toy was a superb example. Made in human-like form, the duck was new to the market and in original untouched condition. When activated, his head nods as his bill opens and closes. Two baby ducks mirror the action. COLLECTOR QUIZ Q: Who was the artist whose works inspired Hummel figurines? A: It was Sister Maria Innocentia (Berta) Hummel, 1909-1946, a German nun. Her name is the M.I. Hummel trademark. The Goebel family made the figurines based on her art. (Danielle Arnet welcomes questions from readers.

Hummel collectibles can be hard to sell. But look on the bright side. Assuming you have genuine Hummels by Goebel, a large collection is often more palatable for an auction to take on, as opposed to single pieces. And certain Hummel figures, etc., sell better than others. The market is down but it’s not dead. Imitations, copies and repros are garage sale material. Smart collectors research what they have before approaching any buyer, including an auction house. You wouldn’t sell a car without research. Same here. Look for prices of similar Goebel Hummel items in a price guide at the library. Scan completed sales on eBay. Think about buying short-term use on where we found 246 pages of recently realized prices for a variety of Hummel items. We found 419 listings for Goebel Hummel figures alone on the free site www.liveauctioneers. com. Selling the collection as a whole makes sense. Piecemeal is too much work. Given the choice, buyers will opt to pick off the best and leave the rest. Choose your auction house carefully. Too many throw items in a box and sell them off,

Happy birthday for Thursday: This year, you will see significant changes within your personal and professional lives. Through May, you will be completing a 12-year luck cycle. Look back 11 years. What were you doing? What has happened since then? What are the common threads? Beginning in June, you enter a new life and luck cycle. Know that you can pull white rabbits out of your black hat! If you are single, during the months that follow, you might meet someone of significance. The end of August and beginning of September could be of significance. If you are attached, your optimism warms up the love temperature. Understand that your role might be more dominant than in the recent past. SAGITTARIUS can provoke strong responses.
