Area’s problems stem from various circumstances Rep. Jeannie McDaniel recalls asking the manager of St. Thomas Square how she came up with a new name for the apartment complex. Police and others had taken to calling the complex at 61st and Peoria “Gun Gardens,” a twist on its former name of Sun Gardens, due to the shootings there. The name changed in 1996; the problems remained. The manager told her she’d always wanted to visit St. Thomas in the U.S. Virgin Islands. McDaniel — who headed the mayor’s Office of Neighborhoods at the time — still cringes at the irony. “The sad thing is where you have that density of people who don’t have much hope, you have some people making bad choices,” said McDaniel, D-Tulsa. In addition, out-of-state property owners “don’t have to see what is happening. … They just want the money coming in,” she said. Four women were shot to death Monday at the Fairmont Terrace apartments, among four “projectbased” complexes that receive Section 8 federal housing subsidies. The slayings shocked a community some say has grown accustomed to a certain level of violence there. The Tulsa World polled community leaders, policy makers and others for their thoughts on what led to the crime and social ills in the area and how to ensure residents’ safety. > Read what they had to say, A9. — ZIVA BRANSTETTER, World Enterprise Editor






he neighborhood encompassing 61st Street and Peoria Avenue needed a name, an identity — something other than the “south Tulsa ghetto” or the “South Peoria pocket slum.” After all, there are nice homes here, too, and hard-working people who wait in the rain for bus rides to work, walk their kids to school and go to church on Sundays to ask the Lord for a little help. A Riverwood neighborhood sign lies on a section of 61st Street More than a decade ago, they under construction at Madison Avenue near Fairmont Terrace apartments in Tulsa. renamed it Riverwood. They designed new signs, defined the boundaries, had neighborhood meetings, made plans for a community center, fought for progress, improvements and carried a sense of pride. But crime and a downward economic spiral fought back against their hard-won progress. The new name never really stuck. In the wake of a brutal quadruple homicide that took the lives of four women in publicly financed apartments, locals are wondering: What happened to Riverwood, and how can we get it back?

BTW team set for Normandy trip

• The pair is one of 15 student-teacher teams chosen.



World Staff Writer

High school history class doesn’t lead many students or teachers to the monuments of Washington, D.C., or the beaches of Normandy. But for one lucky sophomore and his teacher at Booker T. Washington High School, that dream scenario is about to come true. Seamus Ryan-Johnson and history teacher Janet Thomas were selected as one of 15 student-teacher teams from applicants from all over the United States and U.S. Department of Defense schools all over the globe for National History Day’s Albert H. Small Student and Teacher Summer Institute, “Normandy: Sacrifice for Freedom.” “I’ve always been interested in history,” said RyanJohnson. “My grandfather was a little too young to fight in World War II, but he served, and my maternal great-grandfather received the Purple Heart in World War I.” The duo have lots of preparing to do for their summer studies.

The research will be used to create a permanent website to memorialize the soldier, as well as for RyanJohnson to eulogize his chosen subject during their trip to France. Come June, they will be off to Washington, D.C., to be immersed in lectures presented by leading World War II historians and to participate in a scholarly study of the war memorials in the area. Afterward, they will visit historic locations in and around Normandy and make presentations on the Normandy Campaign, and participate in a wreath-laying event at the Normandy American Cemetery. “What a neat vision for a study program,” said Thomas, who has been teaching at

Care Act — which is largely centered on solving problems of how people pay for medical treatment — the Oklahoma plan would take a more wholistic approach, potentially looking at ways to remodel how the health system operates and how people behave, Cline said. “There are several different tools that you can use to actually improve health,” Cline said. “The question would be: How do you actually prioritize and strategically reach those objectives and goals?” The key to the plan would be a Medicaid waiver or waivers — permission from federal officials to use funding differently. Waivers are so common in state Medicaid programs that the common joke among health bureaucrats is: “When you’ve seen one state Medicaid system, you’ve seen one Medicaid system,” but the Affordable Care Act comes with pages of new congressional mandates on how federal money will be used. Cline said the law doesn’t rule out new ideas. “Some people are under the misconception that now, all of sudden, every state is going to look alike,” Cline said. “That’s not true.” There is strong evidence that Oklahoma’s most prominent Medicaid waiver — the Insure Oklahoma program — won’t survive 2014’s full implementation of the Affordable Care Act. Insure Oklahoma uses federal Medicaid funding, state tobacco tax revenue, contributions from small employers and their workers to fund private health insurance for low-income people, but federal officials have made it clear they don’t intend to continue that sort of waiver once Affordable Care Act-mandated health insurance exchanges go into effect Jan. 1, 2014. A little more than 22,000 of the 30,700 Insure Oklahoma clients will be eligible for private insurance with heavy federal subsidies through an exchange, according to


Legislators file bills to nullify Obamacare Two Broken Arrow legislators have filed bills to nullify the provisions of the Affordable Care Act in Oklahoma. “Depriving citizens of the right to make their own choices about health care runs contrary to American ideals,” said Sen. Nathan Dahm, R-Broken Arrow. “If we want a health-care system that is innovative, efficient, and controls costs, we need to allow the free market to work,” he said. “Health care is not a right, it is an enterprise, and it works best with fewer market disTULSAWORLD.COM

Oklahoma Health Care Authority statistics. But about 155,000 people who are too poor to qualify for exchange participation will be left out of Affordable Care Act coverage because Gov. Mary Fallin rejected expanded Medicaid funding under the law, leading to speculation that Fallin might be looking for a way to redirect the Insure Oklahoma program to deal with some of the state’s poorest citizens. But Cline said the Oklahoma Plan would take a different approach to health-care issues and break the singular concentration on paying for health care. Academic studies have shown that about 10 percent of overall health in the U.S. is determined by access to health care, Cline said. By contrast, 40 percent is attributable to behaviors. That brings issues such as smoking and obesity, which are prevalent in Oklahoma, into the equation. “I’m not downplaying that 10 percent. That needs to be there. It is critical,” Cline said. “But when we’re talking about putting billions of dollars into our state every single year … the question then becomes: Are we being

tortions and the incentive to improve the services it offers customers.” Rep. Mike Ritze, R-Broken Arrow, said the federal health-care law is unwelcome in Oklahoma. “Oklahomans have clearly indicated that they would prefer a different approach to health care than the federal law offers,” Ritze said. “I think we have the tools to improve the health-care system in Oklahoma without involvement from the federal government.”

strategic with the utilization of those dollars as we should be? I say no.” A recent state-by-state ranking of America’s health puts Oklahoma 43rd in the nation in the wellness of its residents. The state ranked 49th in a similar survey in 2009. Last week, Fallin spoke at the National Press Club in Washington on behalf of the National Governors Association, and she used part of that presentation to emphasize the need for more flexibility in how states can use Medicaid funding. “We believe that the states have a great deal of potential to change the delivery of health care and Medicaid, and that our states are the vehicle for that coming change,” Fallin said in her speech. She called on the Obama administration to look at Medicaid waiver requests with open minds and to act quickly on innovative ideas. While Fallin made an extended reference to the success of the Insure Oklahoma program in her speech, Cline said she wasn’t pushing for a continuation of that model as much as she was advocating that the administration allow similar levels of flexibility in future programs. “States will continue to look different,” Cline said. “What the governor’s pushing for is to allow us to continue to have the flexibility to make informed decisions for our own population.” Wayne Greene 918-581-8308

RFK children speak on assassination of uncle DALLAS (AP) — Robert F. Kennedy Jr. is convinced that a lone gunman wasn’t solely responsible for the assassination of his uncle, President John F. Kennedy, and said his father believed the Warren Commission report was a “shoddy piece of craftsmanship.” Kennedy and his sister, Rory, spoke about their family Friday


allegations of sexual misconduct during that time and held level hearings for each, according to the document. The alleged victims notified law enforcement before coming to Student Conduct in eight of the cases, according to the document. In the other two, Student Conduct personnel said they didn’t know whether the complainants contacted the police. The names of all but two of the students who were found responsible for sexual misconduct are redacted from the document. The names made public are students who were charged with sex offenses in Payne County District Court, the record shows. The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act, or FERPA, permits universities to disclose final disciplinary outcomes to requestors, including the names of students the university has found responsible for violent crimes or nonforcible sex offenses. One student was found responsible for a violation on Nov. 15, 2010, and was suspended from OSU for one year. In 2011, Student Conduct found four students responsible, but the respective panels decided to suspend only two of them for one year each. In 2012, two students were found responsible for sexual misconduct, but only one of them, Nathan Cochran, 22, was suspended from the university. Cochran faces four charges of sexual battery in allegations involving three other men, but Stillwater Police Capt. Randy Dickerson has said some of the students

The event comes as a year of observances begins for the 50th anniversary of the president’s death. Their uncle was killed Nov. 22, 1963, while riding in a motorcade through Dallas. Five years later,

their father was assassinated in a Los Angeles hotel while celebrating his win in the California Democratic presidential primary. “The evidence at this point I think is very, very convincing that it was not a lone gunman,” Robert F. Kennedy Jr. said, but he didn’t say what he believed may have happened.

who have come to police are not the same as those who notified Student Conduct. On March 2, 2011, a student was found responsible for inappropriately touching another student over the student’s clothes on the chest, thighs and groin, according to the document. The student’s sanctions included a no-contact order, sexual-harassment training and conduct probation, which required that the student receive no OSU honors or awards and resign from student organization leadership positions. On April 18, 2011, Student Conduct held a hearing and found a student not responsible for a sexual misconduct violation. On April 22, 2011, Student Conduct found Christopher Boyd, 22, responsible for sexual misconduct after he admitted violating OSU’s policy. He was suspended for one year. He had been charged on March 21, 2011, with rape by instrumentation, but the case was dismissed at the state’s request on Nov. 17 of that year. Boyd is on a five-year probation after pleading guilty to aggravated assault against a woman on Dec. 9, 2011, and he spent 30 days in jail for the offense, court records show. He is not enrolled at OSU, according to the school’s directory. On June 21, 2011, a student was found responsible for one instance of inappropriate touching. The panel sanctioned the student to a year of conduct probation, a no-contact order with the victim until graduation, a drug and alcohol assessment and sexual-harassment training, which included writing a reflection paper about the incident. On Oct. 4, 2011, a student was suspended for a year af-

ter being found responsible for inappropriately touching another student under the clothes on the student’s buttock. The student was barred from living on campus for one year and put on conduct probation with a no-contact order. On April 27, 2012, Student Conduct found a student not responsible for sexual misconduct. On Nov. 30, Cochran was found responsible for sexual misconduct committed against four students. He was suspended for three years beginning Dec. 14 and immediately banned from contacting the complainants. He was arrested Dec. 12 on a warrant for three sexual battery charges after police began investigating allegations against him on Dec. 7, records show. On Dec. 7, a student was found not responsible for sexual misconduct. The alleged victim notified police and has appealed the hearing outcome, according to the document, which was last updated Dec. 21. The board’s decision is not final, as the appeal process is not yet complete. The OSU/A&M Board of Regents’ Policies and Procedures task force is reviewing OSU’s handling of the sexual misconduct investigation in Cochran’s case. OSU did not immediately provide Cochran’s name to police, citing FERPA, a decision that remains controversial. In emails obtained through an open records request last month, university officials expressed concern about OSU’s image following the assault allegations against Cochran. Cochran will next appear in court at 10 a.m. Feb. 4. He remains free on $100,000 bond.

Hospitals enforce flu shots among employees

Another Bush may seek office • George P. is Jeb’s son and George W.’s nephew.

OPTIONS George P. Bush: The attorney says he may run for Texas land commissioner.

BY WILL WEISSERT Associated Press

AUSTIN, Texas — George Prescott Bush is gearing up to run for a little-known but powerful office in a state where his family already is a political dynasty and where his Hispanic roots could help extend a stranglehold on power Republicans have enjoyed for two decades. The 36-year-old Fort Worth attorney says he is close to settling on campaigning for Texas land commissioner next year. He doesn’t expect to make up his mind until he knows what Texas Gov. Rick Perry, a fellow Republican, decides to do. “We for sure are running, the question is the office,” Bush told The Associated Press during the first interview about his political future since filing paperwork in November to seek elected

office in Texas. Bush’s father is former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, his grandfather is former President George H.W. Bush and his uncle is former President and Texas Gov. George W. Bush. Perry has been governor since George W. Bush left for the White House. Land commissioner traditionally has been a stepping stone to higher office, but Bush said little about any plans to eventually become a national political force. Instead, he spoke of how his experience as an asset manager would help him manage the Permanent Schools Fund, which pays for public education and is managed by the land commissioner. He also said his

perspective as an Afghanistan war veteran would help him use the post to become a leader in veterans’ affairs. Bush said he would announce his final decision after the Texas Legislature adjourns in May but added that his choice will depend “where the governor’s thinking is.” Perry, who flamed out as a presidential candidate but remains popular in Texas, says he’ll reveal this summer if he will seek another term. Some have speculated that Bush could challenge Perry for governor — and even if he doesn’t, what Perry decides will trigger political dominos falling. Land Commissioner Jerry Patterson plans to run for lieutenant governor next year, creating a vacancy in his office. But Attorney General Greg Abbott, a Republican, may himself run for governor in 2014, meaning his post could be open too. Bush suggested he’d be willing to wait his turn politically rather than immediately seek top positions.

CHICAGO — Patients can refuse a flu shot. Should doctors and nurses have that right, too? That is the thorny question surfacing as U.S. hospitals increasingly crack down on employees who won’t get flu shots, with some workers losing their jobs over their refusal. “Where does it say that I am no longer a patient if I’m a nurse,” wondered Carrie Calhoun, a longtime critical care nurse in suburban Chicago who was fired last month after she refused a flu shot. Hospitals’ get-tougher measures coincide with an earlier-than-usual flu season hitting harder than in recent mild seasons. Flu is widespread in most states, and at least 20 children have died. Most doctors and nurses do get flu shots. But in the past two months, at least 15 nurses and other hospital staffers in four states have been fired for refusing, and several others have resigned, according to affected workers, hospital authorities and published reports. In Rhode Island, one of three states with tough penalties behind a mandatory vaccine policy for health care workers, more than 1,000 workers recently signed a petition opposing the policy, according to a labor union that has filed suit to end the regulation. Why would people whose job is to protect sick patients refuse a flu shot? The reasons vary: allergies to flu vaccine, which are rare; religious objections; and skepticism about whether vaccinating health workers will prevent flu in patients. Dr. Carolyn Bridges, associate director for adult immunization at the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, says the strongest evidence is from studies in nursing homes, linking flu

vaccination among health care workers with fewer patient deaths from all causes. “We would all like to see stronger data,” she said. But other evidence shows flu vaccination “significantly decreases” flu cases, she said. “It should work the same in a health care worker versus somebody out in the community.” Cancer nurse Joyce Gingerich is among the skeptics and says her decision to avoid the shot is mostly “a personal thing.” She’s among seven employees at IU Health Goshen Hospital in northern Indiana who were recently fired for refusing flu shots. Gingerich said she gets other vaccinations but thinks it should be a choice. She opposes “the injustice of being forced to put something in my body.” Medical ethicist Art Caplan says health care workers’ ethical obligation to protect patients trumps their individual rights. “If you don’t want to do it, you shouldn’t work in that environment,” said Caplan, medical ethics chief at New York University’s Langone Medical Center. “Patients should

demand that their health care provider gets flu shots — and they should ask them.” For some, flu causes only mild symptoms. But it can also lead to pneumonia, and there are thousands of hospitalizations and deaths each year. The number of deaths has varied in recent decades from about 3,000 to 49,000. A survey by CDC researchers found that in 2011, more than 400 U.S. hospitals required flu vaccinations for their employees and 29 hospitals fired unvaccinated employees. At Calhoun’s hospital, Alexian Brothers Medical Center in Elk Grove Village, Ill., unvaccinated workers granted exemptions must wear masks and tell patients, “I’m wearing the mask for your safety,” Calhoun says. She says that’s discriminatory and may make patients want to avoid “the dirty nurse” with the mask. According to federal data, about 63 percent of U.S. health care workers had flu shots as of November, but the government wants 90 percent coverage of health care workers by 2020.

NEWS BRIEFS 5 Caracas, Venezuela

Opponents appeal delay of Chavez’s inauguration Venezuela’s opposition plans to present a case before a regional human rights court to challenge a Supreme Court decision that allowed the indefinite postponement of President Hugo Chavez’s inauguration. The case is being prepared by a group of lawyers for the country’s opposition coalition, said Gerardo Blyde, a lawyer and opposition politician. He told reporters on Saturday that it’s not yet clear when the case will be brought before the Costa Rica-based Inter-American Court of Human Rights. Despite opposition claims that the constitution requires the inauguration to be held on Jan. 10, the pro-Chavez congress approved delaying the swearingin and the Supreme Court endorsed the postponement. The government says the 58-year-old president is fighting a severe respiratory infection in a Cuban hospital following his fourth cancer surgery. The opposition has demanded more information about Chavez’s condition, and some have called for a medical team to be formed to determine whether he is fit to remain in office.

6 Bilbao, Spain

Basque sympathizers march for ETA amnesty Tens of thousands of Basque separatist sympathizers marched in downtown Bilbao on Saturday calling for an amnesty that would allow ETA prisoners to serve out the remainder of their sentences in the northern Spanish region rather than in jails further afield. Protesters marched to the city’s town hall behind banners saying “Human rights, resolution, peace. Basque prisoners back home.” Some protesters waved Catalan flags in solidarity with another northern Spanish region with an important separatist movement. One large banner included a slogan in English, saying “Repatriate all Basque prisoners.” There are an estimated 700 ETA prisoners held in jails dotted around Spain and France.

7 Yerevan, Armenia

Baby born aboard plane named for crew member A passenger has given birth

aboard a plane flying to Armenia and named her daughter after one of the flight attendants who helped with the delivery. The birth of the healthy baby occurred Saturday, two hours before the Armavia airline flight landed in Yerevan, Armenia’s capital, after a long flight from Siberia. Flight attendant Asmik Gevondyan said she noticed that 31-year-old passenger Armina Babayan appeared to be in labor and organized the delivery. “All of our crew helped to deliver the baby,” Gevondyan told The Associated Press. Babayan, who had claimed to be 6½ months pregnant during checkin, named her first child Asmik, local television reported.

8 Prague

Foreign minister, former premier face runoff A former leftist prime minister and the Czech Republic’s conservative foreign minister will face each other in a presidential runoff later this month after finishing Saturday as the top two candidates in the ballot’s first round. Ex-Premier Milos Zeman and Foreign Minister Karel Schwarzenberg will compete in the second round of voting for the largely ceremonial post on Jan. 25-26. Czechs are electing the country’s president in a direct popular vote for the first time, to replace President Vaclav Klaus, whose second and final term ends March 7. With the votes from all of the 15,000 polling stations counted on Saturday, Zeman was leading with 24.21 percent of the vote, followed by Schwarzenberg with 23.40 percent.

Russian volcano creates rare lava lake A volcano erupting in Russia’s Far East is sending plumes of gas and ash high into the sky and creating a lava lake. The Plosky Tolbachik volcano is located in Kamchatka peninsula, hundreds of miles from the nearest residential areas. Gennady Karpov, a volcano expert at Russia’s Academy of Sciences in the Far East, said Friday: “There were no lava lakes at Kamchatka volcanos before now. We have never seen this before.” Plosky Tolbachik’s last eruption had occurred in November after the volcano was dormant for almost 40 years. —FROM WIRE REPORTS

2 Mogadishu, Somalia

French commando dies in rescue bid A raid to free a French intelligence agent held captive in Somalia for three years went horribly wrong, leaving 17 Islamists and at least one French commando dead in a farming town deep in militant territory. In the chaotic aftermath of the firefight, the hostage’s fate was unclear Saturday. The Islamists denied French claims that he was killed and said they had a new prisoner — a wounded French soldier. The rescue attempt in East Africa came the same day French airstrikes in the West African nation of Mali targeted resurgent rebel Islamists. French officials said the two operations were unrelated, but stepped up domestic counter-terror measures to protect public places and transportation networks. Confusion surrounded early reports of the failed rescue of the French agent, known by his code-name Denis Allex. He was captured in Somalia on July 14, 2009 — Bastille Day — and last seen in a video released in October pleading for the French president to help.

Rebeika Powell

Kayetie Powell Melchor

Misty Nunley

Julie Jackson



Four women — Rebeika Powell, 23; Kayetie Powell Melchor, 23; Misty Nunley, 33; and Julie Jackson, 55 — were found shot to death in the Fairmont Terrace apartments at midday Monday. Rebeika Powell’s 3-year-old son was found at the scene, uninjured. Police are still searching for the killer or killers. They have questioned several people but made no arrests, asking for the community’s help and patience as they do the difficult work. Fairmont Terrace has been the scene of eight killings in the past two years, including the four Monday. Killings have decreased citywide since 2009, but the homicide rate in the area of 61st and Peoria has remained steady and sometimes increased, as it did in 2011, a Tulsa World analysis shows. Those who’ve lived there long enough remember it as once placid and peaceful, with crime increasing after the oil bust hit local real estate hard in the 1980s. There were crime waves in the mid90s, early 2000s and now since 2011. Homicides and violent assaults became the headlines that got the neighborhood noticed. Much of the violent crime in Riverwood (the area between 51st and 71st streets and Riverside Drive and Lewis Avenue) has occurred within a handful of complexes using tax dollars to offer affordable housing options to low-income individuals. Many of the complexes are owned by limited liability companies formed by out-ofstate investors. The companies take a “hands-off” approach to management and aren’t bothered by the crime as long as the checks keep coming, say longtime residents of the area. Records show Fairmont Terrace is owned by two California-based limited liability companies: D.K. Ukiah Properties LLC and 1574 Pacific LLC. Community activists and neighbors say recent efforts to communicate with Fairmont Terrace’s owners about safety concerns have been unsuccessful. Records list Constance Reynolds of Alameda, Calif., as the sole member and manager of 1574 Pacific LLC, while Doug Solis of Mendocino County, Calif., is listed as managing member of DK Ukiah Properties LLC. HUD did not respond to a World request for information about its policies and inspections of Fairmont Terrace.

opments owned by private companies. Funds are paid directly to the owner by HUD and cannot be used by the tenant elsewhere. The remaining properties on the list are privately owned and accept Section 8 vouchers from tenants who qualify and have made it to the top of the program’s waiting list. If a tenant leaves the complex, the voucher travels with him or her to the new residence. The first of these properties in Riverwood was built in 1965 and the last was built in 1985, as oil prices were plummeting. Employers fled, and so did residents who could afford to move elsewhere. Those left behind often lived in fear, as crime rates spiked. Killings, robberies, drug deals, vandalism and other crimes became increasingly common at some of the complexes. Lucky Lamons came to Tulsa from Lawton in 1981 to attend the Tulsa police academy and moved into what was then the Sun Gardens Apartments. Police cars soon began to frequent his complex. Some of the officers were his classmates at the academy, but they didn’t live at Sun Gardens — they were responding to an increasing number of crimes there,

Lamons said. At the time, the complex was unsubsidized, and residents paid market rates for rent. The federal “Section 8” voucher program did not yet exist. But the oil bust in Oklahoma led to vacant store fronts and soon vacant apartments, including Lamons’ former apartment. He moved out and into a single-family home in a different neighborhood by December 1982. “I got out then because I saw the area deteriorating,” he said. As building owners used housing assistance programs to fill vacant apartments, residents say, the neighborhood changed. Two people were killed in 1994 at Sun Gardens, sparking meetings between the tenant association and property management about the violence and dilapidated conditions. By 1996, problems continued at the complex but the name had changed to St. Thomas Square. Names of apartment complexes in the area change frequently as owners try to escape the stigma of past violence, officials say. In the late 1990s, the city came up with a unique idea to purchase and tear down the dilapidated, crime-rid-

‘Face of poverty’

Henry Mitchell: “People call and ask me if I’m OK out here.”

Lanny Endicott has lived in the Heller Park area of Riverwood since the 1970s. For nearly two decades, he has made revitalizing it and helping residents his mission, through the South Peoria Neighborhood Connection and its South Tulsa Community House. As director of the social work program at Oral Roberts University — its campus is less than a block away from Riverwood’s southeast boundary — he sends students into the publicly financed housing complexes to survey residents about their needs. “The face of poverty here is a single woman with a couple of kids,” he said. Frequently, there are boyfriends who come and go among the various complexes, many involved in drug crime, he said. The South Tulsa Community House offers GED classes, counseling, a food pantry and computers that residents can use for job applications or schoolwork. It sits next to the towering fences of Fairmont Terrace. Volunteers there hear the sirens responding to meth fires (one of the buildings burned down last year) and domestic disturbances at the complex. On the worst days,

dled Village Square apartments, adjacent to St. Thomas Square. The city would use federal Community Development Block Grant funds and a local contractor built affordable homes. The homes were purchased by buyers without housing assistance via conventional financing. The hope was the homes would breathe new life and stability into the neighborhood. Henry Mitchell was the first buyer, and 15 years later, he lives in the same home on Madison Place. For a while, things had been quiet in his neighborhood, he said, but recently, the crime has started back up again. “You see 61st and Peoria all the time on the news,” he said. “People call and ask me if I’m OK out here. People say a lot of bad stuff about the neighborhood, but it’s not coming from the people who live here.”

‘Area deteriorating’ A Tulsa World investigation has found that 17 multifamily properties accepting Section 8 rental subsidies exist in the area surrounding Fairmont Terrace, excluding small developments of a few units. Eight of those properties are owned by out-of-state interests. In terms of total individual Section 8 apartment units, out-of-state interests own about two-thirds of those available in the area. Four properties, including Fairmont Terrace, are “projConstruction workers wave traffic through the intersection at ect-based Section 8” devel- 61st Street and Peoria Avenue.  JOHN CLANTON/Tulsa World

they hear gunshots. “One of my biggest frustrations is you can talk to the management, and they’re good people, they work hard — but they get intimidated and beat up a lot,” Endicott said. “And the piece that’s missing is the owners.” For many years, his organization and students developed a good working relationship with a management liaison at St. Thomas Square, he said. They set up a tenants’ association and sponsored holiday parties. Then the complex’s management changed. The liaison was fired, and all the programs they had set up were abandoned, Endicott said. Neighbors were once optimistic about the city’s interest in a possible Johnson Park community center, he said. Then ideas started to surface from outside groups about a Little League baseball park or lacrosse fields. “It’s a basketball and soccer neighborhood,” he said. Officials lost interest, he said, and the project went nowhere. Johnson Park used to host annual activities, including a post-holiday Christmas-treeburning ceremony. The city used it as a parking lot for the PGA Championship in 2007 and as a dump for ice storm debris. It’s currently littered with construction equipment and rubble as the city widens 61st Street. “It’s 30 acres, and it’s just been sitting there,” Endicott said. Steve Olsen is an architect who has lived in the Heller Park area since 1968. He drafted plans for the multipurpose community center at Johnson Park, something to bring resources, activities and a gathering place to an area that badly needs them, he said. Neighbors presented the idea to city officials with enthusiasm and hope. “We were trying to whet their appetite with it,” he said. “I don’t know what the hang-up was —probably that we didn’t have any funding.” A community center with recreation, education, medical and counseling services at Johnson Park would be “a big deal” for Riverwood, Olsen said. “This would be something the whole community could use,” he said. “We keep trying things, and one of these times it will hit, I guess.”

‘Money keeps running out’ Cheryl Davison and her husband, Dale, got involved in the South Tulsa Community House after they realized the food pantry at their church, Christ the Redeemer Lutheran, might serve the community better if it were closer to the heavily traveled bus routes on Peoria. So they put their efforts into the food pantry and the community house, and became involved on the board. They don’t live in Riverwood, but their church sits on the edge of it, and they care about what happens in that community. “It’s something that people have talked about for years — but nothing’s happened,” she said. “The money keeps running out.” Residents of St. Thomas Square and Fairmont Terrace frequently walk to the Warehouse Market southeast of the complexes and push the groceries home in shopping carts across rush-hour traffic on Peoria Avenue. Families walk their children to school at McClure and Marshall elementary schools. Safety in that neighborhood should concern all Tulsans, Davison said. “After what happened on Monday, people are going to say, ‘Hey, we can’t ignore what’s going on at 61st and Peoria any longer,’” she said.

61 & PEORIA Section 8 housing exists in two forms ST


• One is projectbased, while the other uses vouchers.

Section 8 availability

World Staff Writer

When it comes to Section 8 housing, there are two distinct programs — project-based Section 8 and the Housing Choice Voucher Program. Both are funded by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. Yet they differ on how the subsidies are distributed and where a tenant can live. The term “Section 8” refers to a portion of the Housing Act of 1937 authorizing the payment of rental housing assistance to private landlords on behalf of low-income households. Through project-based Section 8 housing, owners of a housing complex — either privately owned and operated or owned and operated by a public housing authority — receive subsidies directly from HUD. The Tulsa Housing Authority owns and operates four project-based Section 8

The Tulsa Housing Authority checks its tenants for violent criminal or drug-related activity within the last three years and checks for a pattern of criminal behavior. Additionally, it denies assistance to anyone on the lifetime sex offender registry. Privately owned properties are expected by HUD to conduct background checks because anyone on the lifetime sex offender registry is prohibited. Additional checks are up to the owner to determine.

D.C. REPORT Former Inhofe staffers axed by panel successor

Inhofe in the Far East, including Myanmar

About a dozen of U.S. Sen. Jim Inhofe’s former staffers for the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee have been fired by his successor as ranking member, according to the National Journal and other sources. Inhofe gave up his spot as the top Republican on the committee for the same spot on the Armed Services Committee. Although Inhofe remains on EPW, Louisiana’s David Vitter now controls the Republican committee staff. The National Review, quoting an unnamed source, said Vitter and Inhofe have not gotten along since Vitter was involved in a prostitution scandal a number of years ago. Vitter denied the claim. Meanwhile, Inhofe hired a former EPW staffer, Alex Herrgott, to be his new legislative director. Herrgott worked for the committee Republicans for eight years before going to the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.

Inhofe has been in the Far East the past week with a congressional delegation. Among the places visited was Myanmar, also known as Burma. Until recently, Myanmar was ruled by one of the world’s most repressive regimes, a military junta that largely isolated the country from the rest of the world. The country has begun to open up to the world. Myanmar is thought to be rich in natural resources, including oil and gas, and that seemed to be the focus of Inhofe’s attention. “I told President (Thein) Sein that I believe U.S. companies, especially those in the oil and gas sectors, can play a positive role in demonstrating high standards of responsible business conduct and encourage free market policies, while at the same time protect human rights in this rich land,” Inhofe said in a written statement.

Coburn names Brian Treat as chief of staff

U.S. Sen. Tom Coburn praised the Food and Drug Administration’s draft guidance on non-abuse-deterrent prescription drugs. Coburn is concerned about the proposed authorization of generic extended-release opioids such as Oxycontin in forms that would more easily lend themselves to abuse. Coburn said he and Rep. Fred Upton, R-Mich., who had joined Coburn in objecting to such drugs, said they have been assured by FDA Commissioner Margaret Hamburg it will keep such drugs off the market. — RANDY KREHBIEL, World Staff Writer

Coburn praises FDA rules on prescription drugs

Brian Treat has been named Sen. Tom Coburn’s chief of staff, replacing Michael Schwartz. Schwartz, who suffers from amyotrophic lateral sclerosis — commonly known as Lou Gehrig’s disease — resigned in December because of his health. Treat has been a legislative assistant and senior policy advisor to Coburn since the Muskogee Republican was elected to the Senate in 2004. He also worked for Coburn in the U.S. House of Representatives.

House to consider Sandy aid • Concerns about unrelated projects lead to a $17 billion proposal.

ROLL CALL BY TARGETED NEWS SERVICE WASHINGTON — Here is how Oklahoma’s members of the House of Representatives voted on key bills and amendments last week. A “Y” means the member voted for the measure; an “N” means the member voted against the measure; a “?” means the member did not vote. There were no key votes in the Senate last week.

BY ANDREW MIGA Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Conservatives and watchdog groups are mounting a “notso-fast” campaign against a $50.7 billion superstorm Sandy aid package that Northeastern governors and lawmakers hope to push through the House this coming week. Their complaint is that lots of the money lawmakers are considering will actually go toward recovery efforts for past disasters and other projects unrelated to the late-October storm. A Senate-passed version from the end of the last Congress included $150 million for what the Commerce Department described as fisheries disasters in Alaska, Mississippi and the Northeast, and $50 million in subsidies for replanting trees on private land damaged by wildfires. The objections have led senior House Republicans to assemble their own $17 billion proposal, that when combined with already approved money for flood insurance claims is less than half what President Barack Obama sought and the Senate passed in December. That $17 billion package will be brought to the floor by the House Appropriations Committee, and North-

Sense, a budget watchdog group. Only South Carolina, Arizona and Michigan would not qualify, he said. “That’s not a bad chunk of change, particularly if you are trying to get other lawmakers to vote for the bill,” Ellis said. State and local governments like block grants because they provide more flexibility in how the money is spent. The money can go toward a variety of needs. The Northeast lawmakers’ $33.7 billion amendment also includes more than $135 million to help the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration improve weather forecasting.

east lawmakers will have a chance to add $33.7 billion more. House Speaker John Boehner intends to let the House vote on both measures. He’s responding both to conservatives who are opposed to more deficit spending and to Govs. Andrew Cuomo, D-N.Y., and Chris Christie, R-N.J., who are irate that the House hasn’t acted sooner. Critics are taking the sharpest aim at $12.1 billion in the amendment for Department of Housing and Urban Development emergency block grants. Any state struck by a federally declared major disaster in 2011, 2012 or this year would qualify for the grants, and that’s just about all the states, said Stephen Ellis, vice president of Taxpayers for Common

House has passed a bill (H.R. 41), sponsored by Rep. Scott Garrett, R-N.J., to temporarily increase the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s borrowing authority for carrying out the National Flood Insurance Program from $20.725 billion to $30.425 billion. Garrett said the increase “is really vital to ensure that the homeowners in my state of New Jersey, as well as in New York and Connecticut and any other affected areas, will be able to continue to have their contractual flood insurance policies with the NFIP honored” after superstorm Sandy. The vote, on Jan. 4, was 354 yeas to 67 nays.

Obama’s 2nd inauguration smaller, still grand WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama’s second inauguration is shaping up as a high-energy celebration smaller than his first milestone swearing-in, yet still designed to mark his unprecedented role in American history with plenty of eyecatching glamour. A long list of celebrity performers will give the onceevery-four years rite of democratic passage the air of a star-studded concert, from the bunting-draped Capitol’s west front, where Obama takes the oath Jan. 21, to the Washington Convention Center, which is expected to be packed with 40,000 ball-goers that evening. The first family will lead a parade of clanging bands, elaborate floats and marchers, including costumed dancers, prancing horses and military units, down Pennsylvania Avenue. The president will dance with the first lady, whose dress seems destined to be most anticipated fashion statement of the second Obama administration. A new element of the inaugural events will be announced next week, with the appointment of around half a dozen “citizen co-chairs,” community leaders from across the country chosen because they represent the president’s accomplishments and commitments. They will take part in inaugural events throughout the weekend. Estimates of turnout are 600,000 to 800,000, com-

pared with the 1.8 million in the record crowd on the National Mall four years ago to see the first swearing in of a black president. The mood of this 57th inauguration will be tempered by the weak economy, high unemployment, the aftermath of the Connecticut elementary school shooting and the long war in Afghanistan that’s expected to require U.S. combat forces through the end of next year. Yet developments in the last week have shown that inaugural enthusiasm is high. A limited offering of $60 inaugural ball tickets for the general public sold out quickly, and inauguration planners have tried to crack down

on scalping business that’s sprung up online. There’s an impressive list of celebrities, including Beyonce, Katy Perry and Usher, who have signed on to perform. Steve Kerrigan, president and CEO of the Presidential Inaugural Committee, said that just because the festivities are going to be smaller doesn’t mean they are going to be any less significant. “What we’ve been seeing from the very beginning is a passion and energy for this inaugural because people want to be a part of history,” Kerrigan said. “This is a moment that’s only happened 56 other times.” Obama’s speech gives him

a moment to command the world’s attention on a level that’s rare even for a president. If history is any guide, Obama will try to put behind the divisive election. He has the State of the Union three weeks later to make his points on taxes, guns, immigration and other issues. “Second inaugurals are often a kind of victory lap speech in a lot of ways, that would go back to Thomas Jefferson in 1805,” said presidential historian Leo Ribuffo of George Washington University. “Presidents are often reflecting on accomplishments of the administration and the challenges that will continue into the second term.” The 2009 inauguration will be remembered as a milestone for a nation built on slavery and blood-stained by the civil rights movement. But Obama clearly has that historical context in mind for his second go-round, as evidenced by the Bibles he chose to place his left hand on while taking the oath of office — one owned by Abraham Lincoln and one by Martin Luther King Jr. Their selection is especially symbolic because Obama’s second inauguration comes on the federal holiday marking King’s birthday and in a milestone anniversary year involving both men. It was 150 years ago when Lincoln signed the Emancipation Proclamation to end slavery, and 50 years ago when King delivered his “I Had a Dream” speech from the Lincoln Memorial.

Report: Warming changing daily U.S. life

SKYWATCH BY CHRIS PAGAN Sunday: The crescent moon

is low in the western sky this evening. The moon is 17 degrees above the southwestern horizon at 6:30 p.m. Ten degrees below the moon is Mars. Its red color allows it to be distinguished from other stars. Monday: After evening twilight a nice double star is visible in the constellation of Andromeda. The double star, known as Almach, reveals a brilliant contrast of color. Look for Andromeda, which appears as a skinny “V” high in the west at 7:30 p.m. Follow the line of stars down the left side of the constellation to the third bright star from the apex of the “V.” This last star is Almach. A telescope will reveal a deepgolden star next to a blue star. Tuesday: Jupiter lies between two bright star clusters. The giant planet is closest to the Hyades star cluster, which forms the head of the bull in the constellation Taurus. The Hyades are 3½ degrees below Jupiter. The Pleiades are 7½ degrees to the upper right of Jupiter. Wednesday: In the eastern sky is a small constellation, Canis Minor, the little dog. It is below the constellation of Gemini and to the right of the constellation Cancer. The little dog is composed of two stars, the brighter of which is named Procyon and is 20 degrees above the horizon. This constellation, just a line between two stars, appears more like a hot dog. Thursday: By 7 a.m., Venus is 5 degrees above the southeastern horizon. Locating this planet in the morning sky used to be easy, but it has grown more difficult as Venus slowly moves closer to the sun. The brightness of Venus allows it to remain visible for the next few weeks, but soon it will disappear from the morning sky. Friday: An Iridium flare occurs in the morning sky — that’s when the solar panels on a communications satellite reflect light back down to Earth. Iridium flares are visible only for a brief amount of time. At 6:43 a.m., one is visible in the north-northwest, a few degrees to the right of the Big Dipper. Make sure to look for it early. The first quarter moon occurs today at 5:46 p.m. Saturday: Tonight the moon is 10 degrees south of the constellation Aries the ram. The brightest star in the constellation is Hamal. From Hamal, move 4 degrees to the west, then 1½ degrees to the southwest to Mesarthim, or Gamma Arietis. Gamma Arietis is a double star only distinguishable as two stars when viewed through a telescope.


WASHINGTON (AP) — Global warming is already changing America from sea to rising sea and is affecting how Americans live, a new federally commissioned report says. A special panel of scientists convened by the government issued Friday a 1,146-page draft report that details in dozens of ways how climate change is already disrupting the health, homes and other facets of daily American life.

It warns that those disruptions will increase in the future. “Climate change affects everything that you do,” said report co-author Susan Cutter, director of the Hazards and Vulnerability Research Institute at the University of South Carolina. “It affects where you live, where you work and where you play and the infrastructure that you need to do all these things. It’s more than just the polar bears.”

The blunt report takes a global environmental issue and explains what it means for different U.S. regions, for various sectors of the economy and for future generations. The National Climate Assessment doesn’t say what should be done about global warming. White House science adviser John Holdren writes that it will help leaders, regulators, city planners and even farmers figure out

what to do to cope with coming changes. And climate change is more than hotter temperatures, the report said. “Human-induced climate change means much more than just hotter weather,” the report says, listing risingseas, downpours, melting glaciers and permafrost, and worsening storms. “These changes and other climatic changes have affected and will continue to affect human

health, water supply, agriculture, transportation, energy, and many other aspects of society.” “Climate change and its impacts threaten the wellbeing of urban residents in all 13 regions of the U.S.,” the report said. “Essential local and regional infrastructure systems such as water, energy supply, and transportation will increasingly be compromised by interrelated climate change impacts.”

NATION ‘Death Star’ petition rejected by White House CHICAGO — The Obama administration has officially rejected a citizen petition calling for the building of a “Star Wars”-style “Death Star,” citing the enormous cost of the project, its opposition to destroying entire planets and critical design flaws. Paul Shawcross, chief of the Science and Space Branch at the White House Office of Management and Budget, made the official response on the White House website He said the administration shares the desire for job creation and a strong national defense but noted that the construction cost has been estimated at more than $850 quadrillion, and “we’re working hard to reduce the deficit, not expand it.” “The administration does not support blowing up planets,” he said. Shawcross also questioned the sense of spending “countless taxpayer dollars on a Death Star with a fundamental flaw that can be exploited by a one-man starship.”

Biden offers to speak with Newtown families HARTFORD, Conn. — Vice President Joe Biden, who is leading an administration review of gun-safety laws, has offered to talk with any families of the Connecticut elementary school shooting victims who would like to speak with him personally, a support group said Saturday. The group, Sandy Hook Promise, has been working to help the families whose loved ones were killed in the Dec. 14 massacre of 20 first-graders and six women at Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown. It said in an email to the families that it could arrange a call or put the families in touch directly with Biden’s office. “If you choose to wait a few weeks, or months, the offer is still there,” the group wrote. President Barack Obama pushed reducing gun violence to the top of his domestic agenda following the shooting in Newtown. Obama put Biden in charge of an administration task force and set a late January deadline for proposals.

Frank Bilecki, a spokesman for Cook County Sheriff Tom Dart, confirmed a Chicago Sun-Times report that Cook County State’s Attorney Anita Alvarez agreed to ask a judge for a warrant to search the housing complex on the city’s Northwest Side. Such requests for search warrants are routinely approved. Bilecki said that investigators would bring in high-tech thermal imaging devices that detect underground anomalies indicating something may have been buried. —FROM WIRE REPORTS

Family quarrels add intrigue in lotto case

BIG CYPRESS NATIONAL PRESERVE, Fla. — An armed mob set out into the Florida Everglades on Saturday to flush out a scaly invader. It sounds like the second act of a sci-fi horror flick but, really, it’s pretty much Florida’s plan for dealing with an infestation of Burmese pythons that are eating their way through a fragile ecosystem. Nearly 800 people signed up for the month-long “Python Challenge” that started Saturday afternoon. The vast majority — 749 — are members of the general public who lack the permits usually required to harvest pythons on public lands. “We feel like anybody can get out in the Everglades and figure out how to try and find these things,” said Nick Wiley, executive director of the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. “It’s very safe, getting out in the Everglades. People do it all the time.” Twenty-eight python permit holders also joined the hunt at various locations in the Everglades. The state is offering cash prizes to whoever brings in the longest python and whoever bags the most pythons by the time the competition ends at midnight Feb. 10. Dozens of would-be python hunters showed up for

some last-minute training in snake handling Saturday morning at the University of Florida Fort Lauderdale Research and Education Center in Davie. The training came down to common sense: Drink water, wear sunscreen, don’t get bitten by anything and don’t shoot anyone. Many of the onlookers dressed in camouflage, though they probably didn’t have to worry about spooking the snakes. They would have a much harder time spotting the splotchy, tan pythons in the long green grasses and woody brush of the Everglades. “It’s advantage-snake,”

mechanical engineer Dan Keenan concluded after slashing his way through a quarter-mile of scratchy sawgrass, dried leaves and woody overgrowth near a campsite in the Big Cypress National Preserve, which is about 50 miles southeast of Naples and is supervised by the National Park Service. Keenan, of Merritt Island, and friend Steffani Burd of Melbourne, a statistician in computer security, holstered large knives and pistols on their hips, so they’d be ready for any python that crossed their path. The snakes can grow to more than 20 feet in length.

CHICAGO (AP) — In the week since news surfaced that a Chicago man was poisoned to death with cyanide just before he was to collect a lottery payout, surprising details about his convoluted family saga have trickled out. Urooj Khan’s widow and siblings fought for months over the businessman’s estate, including the lottery check. His father-in-law owed tens of thousands of dollars in taxes. His 17-yearold daughter from a previous marriage had moved out of her stepmom’s home and into his sister’s after his death. Then his ex-wife came forward, announcing in anguish that she hadn’t seen her daughter in more than a decade and hadn’t known she was in the U.S. The slowly emerging family backstory and everexpanding cast of characters have added layers of intrigue to a baffling case in which authorities have revealed little and everyone is wondering: Who did it? The victim’s relatives hint at family squabbles. And Khan’s wife, Shabana Ansari, has endured clutches of

reporters outside the family home and business, asking what dinner she made for Khan on the night he died. “She’s just as curious as anyone else to get to the bottom of what caused her husband’s death,” said AlHaroon Husain, who is representing Ansari in the case that will divide up Khan’s estate, including the $425,000 in lottery winnings. Ansari and other relatives have denied any role in his death and expressed a desire to learn the truth. Authorities remain tightlipped about who they may suspect. In the coming weeks, they plan to exhume the 46-year-old Indian immigrant’s body. He was days from receiving his winnings when he died before dawn on July 20. The night before, Khan ate dinner with his wife, daughter and father-in-law. Sometime that night, Khan awoke feeling ill and collapsed as he tried to get up from a chair, his wife has said, according to the Chicago Sun-Times. Khan died without a will, leading to a court battle.

Mississippi rock blasting puts river in ship shape ST. LOUIS — Crews have completed the most critical phase of removing bedrock that threatened barges along a crucial stretch of the droughtstarved Mississippi River, staving off the shipping industry’s fears that the treacherous channel could close to traffic, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers said Saturday. Using excavators and explosives, corps-hired contractors cleared 365 cubic yards of limestone and added two vital feet of depth to the channel near Thebes, Ill., about 130 miles south of St. Louis, the corps said. That phase, which began last month, addressed the most pressing threat to mariners, and additional rock removal is expected nearby, the corps said. “The river rock removal contractors executed their work quickly and efficiently in the primary areas of concern,” said Maj. Gen. John Peabody, commander of the corps’ Mississippi Valley division. “The work has deepened the channel enough to successfully maintain navigation through this critical reach of the river.”

Bad TV ups the violence factor


iolence in the movies has usually been lightly or slightly regarded. In the old westerns, a cowboy riding north could fire a single shot from his sixshooter and hit an opponent a block away, riding south. In the old James Bond movies, enemies of the state were gunned off ledges in astounding numbers, often plunging to their demise one after the other, like synchronized swimmers entering the pool. This week at the movies, the top two shows are “Texas Chainsaw” and “Django Unchained,” the two most violent movies on the charts. “Chainsaw” is in 3-D, in case two-dimensional bone splinters and gut remnants aren’t enough. Plot? What plot?: Violence in movies is noticed more when the show isn’t any good. Watch either of the first two Godfathers, and you could say, “What violence?” The violence on the TV show “Justified” never bothered me until the other night when one of the characters shot a man dead over a misunderstanding; a matter of semantics. The murder was given the consideration of a minor misstep — oops, shove him under the chair and let’s go eat. This series is beginning its fourth season on FX. The first two years were great; the third fair. This season started like most good ideas that become overnight sensations: It thinks it’s so cute. The plot is thin, the dialogue artsy. The show is about drugs among the hicks in the sticks, and the violence that frames that lifestyle, those rusty saws. There’s still hope for this one, but it needs to wipe that smirk off its suddenly more recognizable face. There appears to be but one chance left for a high level of quality in the field of TV fiction this year: “Southland,” which starts a 10-episode run in February on TNT. This one is about cops in the battlefields of inner-city L.A. It shows what dealing with the flip side of humanity — inhumanity — can do to a person just trying to do most of the right things. This series has been so good, with such memorable characters, that it’s a miracle it’s still on the air. Real violence scatters viewers: Violence on any screen stands out more after all the recent killings in real life. You see people sliced or blasted and immediately wonder how that might register with somebody nuts or evil. When it comes to violence on a screen, a person is now apt to think about a better way to be entertained. Censorship advocates must note that somebody unstable could hear a call to arms from a butterfly.

Ross to sing at Speaker’s Ball • The sold-out event on Feb. 1 will benefit the 111Project. BY BARBARA HOBEROCK World Capitol Bureau

OKLAHOMA CITY — The soldout Speaker’s Ball on Feb. 1 will feature legendary singer and actress Diana Ross. The black-tie event begins at 6:30 p.m. at the Embassy Suites Hotel and Conference Center in Norman. The location will hold 1,120 people, said Marian Free, Oklahoma

Speaker’s Ball Inc. executive director. Tickets were $150, she said. Rep. T.W. Shannon, R-Lawton, is Oklahoma’s first black House speaker. He is also an enrolled memRoss ber of the Chickasaw Nation. He was sworn in on Tuesday during organizational day. The Speaker’s Ball will benefit the 111Project. The organization, launched in 2011, recruits foster

families across the state. “There is nothing more important than investing in young people,” said Shannon, a father of two. The purpose of the group is to ensure no Oklahoma child goes without a family, said Ben Nockels, 111Project executive director. “Money raised will go directly to more effectively recruiting, training and supporting new foster families from the faith community,” Nockels said. Former Gov. Frank Keating and his wife, Cathy, will emcee the event, Free said. Keating, a Republican, served as governor from 1995

until 2003. Gov. Mary Fallin and her husband, Wade Christensen, the state’s first “First Gentleman,” are expected to attend. Miss America 2007, Lauren Nelson, will sing the National Anthem, Free said. Nelson is from Lawton. Shannon will be introduced by four of his personal mentors, she said. They are Chickasaw Nation Gov. Bill Anoatubby, U.S. Rep. Tom Cole, businessman Russell M. Perry and former U.S. Rep. J.C. Watts. The event will also include video SEE BALL A17

Bald Eagle Days

Nature on the wing, seminars draw enthusiasts BY DAVID HARPER World Staff Writer

The spirits of local bald eagle enthusiasts are soaring this weekend. The Bald Eagle Days event offers an opportunity for those with an interest in America’s national bird to see them in their own habitat along the Arkansas River and then to subsequently get a closer look at a series of

seminars at the Jenks High School Freshman Academy. Tulsa Audubon Society president John Kennington said Saturday that the two-part event, now in its second year, allows birdlovers and novices to learn more about the “mystique” behind the birds. Kennington estimated there are about 200 bald eagles that nest in Oklahoma but that hundreds more migrate through the state.

He said they are “birds of opportunity” who aren’t very picky about what they consume. “They will eat whatever they can get their talons on,” Kennington said.

Skiatook schools healing from scandal BY RHETT MORGAN World Staff Writer

SKIATOOK — When tensions rise at a Skiatook School Board meeting, President Tim Allen said he and his two veteran colleagues reflect on the winter of 2010. And gain perspective. “I don’t know how many times in the boardroom, some of the new members will say, ‘This is just stressful,’ ” Allen said. “We’re all three

thinking, ‘you don’t even know what stress is.’ ” Three years ago come February, a state investigative audit crash-landed on the school district’s administration, exposing purchasing practices that had spun out of control. On everything from mop heads to trash cans, the school was paying 100 percent to 450 percent more than typical retail prices, with the district forking over an average commission of 63 cents for every

dollar it spent on janitorial supplies. By the time the scandal was over, emboldened school patrons had rallied for the formation of a Tulsa County grand jury, which led to former school superintendent Gary Johnson and Oklahoma City vendor Rick Enos being convicted on state and federal bribery-related charges. “In my opinion, the school has done a 180(-degree turn) in so many ways,” Allen said. “With (Skiatook Superintendent) Mr. (Rick) Thomas

That was evident in the bond issue we just passed at 70 percent.” That bond proposition, OK’d in August, cleared the way for construction of a new 23,000-squarefoot second- and third-grade center, new secure entrances at every campus site, technology upgrades and other improvements.

Memorial service Tulsan invented changeable signs set Thursday for City Hall reporter Don Downing 1925-2013


World Staff Writer

While working at his job in the city of Tulsa’s Legal Department one day, Don Downing saw a sign. Like a lot of his ideas, it just kind of came to him — popped up in his head. And as usual, he knew he had to act on it. What Downing, an investigator for the legal staff, envisioned was a traffic sign — not just any kind, but a more effective sign that could be programmed to change messages. Having inherited his father’s inventive spirit, the lifelong Tulsan set about fashioning one. Downing ’s mechanical signs caught on, initially for posting speed limits in school zones. He went on to patent a variety of them for all sorts of traffic needs. That was in the 1960s. Downing’s company is still in business. Now run by his sons, and having expanded to other products, it continues to reflect Downing’s best qualities, family members say. “He had an inquisitive mind,” said his wife, Deanie Downing. “Don wanted to know why things did what they did. If he got stuck, he stayed with it until he figured it out. And he always did.” Donald Marvin Downing, a World War II veteran, inventor and founder of Downing Manufacturing, died Wednesday. He was 87.

Don Downing shows some of the mechanically changeable traffic signs he designed and manufactured at his business, Downing Manufacturing, in Tulsa. Downing, 87, died Wednesday. A service is set for Monday. Tulsa World file

A service is set for 2 p.m. Monday at the Memorial Park Cemetery Chapel under the direction of Mark Griffith-Westwood Funeral Home. Downing’s first order was for 10 school-zone signs for the city of Tulsa. From there, his business, housed in a small west Tulsa building, grew. Soon nearly every school in the Tulsa area had at least one of his signs. Achieved through a mechanical system of doors that opened and closed with an internal clock, Downing’s signs could be set to change messages at intervals. Using the same system, he also made no-left-turn signs, railroad-crossing signs, signs with messages for tractortrailer rigs and signs alerting

drivers to high-water dangers. 3M, a national company, later began selling his signs. Eventually, Downing ’s signs were advising drivers in nearly every state and 19 other countries about traffic issues. Technology advanced, and Downing’s design is no longer used, although many of his well-made signs are still operating in Tulsa and elsewhere. But he continued to invent and patent other products. One of the company’s chief products now is an applicator he developed that road crews use to attach reflectors to the pavement. One of eight children, Downing was a graduate of Webster High School. He served three years in the Ma-

A memorial service for Tulsa World City Hall reporter Brian Barber has been set for 10:30 a.m. Thursday at Redeemer Covenant Church, 5415 E. 101st St., under the direction of Moore’s Southlawn Funeral Home. Barber, 39, died Wednesday from complications related to two heart transplants. Barber had his first transplant in 2000, when he was 26, and the second in 2005. To honor Barber, city councilors and Mayor Dewey Bartlett agreed last week to name the City Council chambers’ media area after him. A graduate of Tulsa’s Memorial High School who held a bachelor’s degree from the University of South Dakota, Barber joined the Tulsa World as a night police reporter in 1996. He later worked as a general assignment reporter before moving to the City Hall beat in 2004. As a reporter, Barber wrote simply and directly and was known for his accuracy, clarity and fairness, as the mayor and multiple city councilors noted in remembering him. Barber provided comprehensive reporting on the construction and opening of Tulsa’s downtown arena and the contentious conversion of the city’s trash service to a volume-based system that included recycling.

He also was honored by the AP in 2004 for his reporting on RxDepot, a Tulsa-based business that helped Americans buy cheaper prescription drugs from Canadian pharmacies. Because of ongoing complications from his transplants and cardiomyopathy, a genetic heart condition that had made them necessary, Barber never had it easy. But he covered his beat thoroughly, with wit and aplomb, and was beloved by both colleagues and his story subjects alike.

116th Street North section to close for overpass project BY JARREL WADE

*Hwy 75 will not close, but may for portions of the project

Sperry 86th St. N.

106th St. N. N. Yale Ave.

Beginning on Monday, crews will shut down 116th Street North at U.S. 75 for about nine months while state transportation crews construct an overpass above the highway, Oklahoma Department of Transportation officials said. U.S. 75 will close for portions of the nine-month construction but will remain open Monday and for significant portions of the project, according to an ODOT release. Detours for drivers on 116th Street North will rely on North Yale Avenue and North Harvard Avenue on either side of the highway, as drivers make their way to either 126th Street North or 106th Street North, ODOT officials said. For portions of the project when U.S. 75 is closed, drivers will have to exit at 106th Street North or 126th Street North and go to North Yale Avenue to return to the highway in their respective direction. The roadway above U.S. 75 will close at 7 a.m. Mon-

Week in review Downtown demolition ban:

City Councilor Blake Ewing has proposed extending a temporary ban on demolishing downtown buildings for surface parking lots until the council can consider permanent restrictions in the zoning code. A six-month moratorium took effect July 18 and is set to expire at the end of the month. “It’s basically just to put the brakes on and to say we’re developing something that will affect downtown forever,” Ewing said during a council committee meeting Thursday. “Let’s make sure nothing crazy happens in the next short period of time.” Planning Director Dawn Warrick said the city is drafting code amendments that would ban most new surface lots and create a stricter application and review process for businesses seeking to demolish buildings. That would empower the city to preserve historic buildings after decades of watching its skyline erode, Ewing said. Extending the moratorium for six months should allow city personnel to finish the proposed code amendments during a time when “there has been a general murmur that some properties may be on the chopping block,” Ewing said. The moratorium, he added, would “keep someone from doing something ridiculous” before the council can consider any amendments. Changes in the demolition application process likely would include requiring businesses to explain the purpose of their demolition and “to make the public aware of what they’re doing,” Warrick said. Ewing said the current process gives the city no say in what is built after the demolition and requires only a small amount of paperwork. Holiday trash service: Tulsans recycled more in the two weeks after Christmas than in any period since the Oct. 1 launch of the city’s curbside trash and recycling service as the program marked a successful first holiday season, officials said Tuesday. The city’s 116,500 households put 452.96 tons of material into recycle bins last week and 412 tons the week before — up from a weekly average of 374.1 tons over the previous three months, city spokeswoman Liz Hunt said. Meanwhile, calls for missed trash service seemed to increase only slightly — if at all — in the two weeks following Christmas, when some collection schedules were adjusted, Hunt said. The solid waste helpline fielded 2,763 calls last week, up from 2,519 during the week of Dec. 10, but that includes complaints unrelated to missed trash service, Hunt said.

Those numbers are misleading because the city’s call center was closed for three days around Christmas and New Year’s Day, but there was little indication of widespread collection problems, said Eric Lee, the city’s solid waste manager. Increases in trash collections were modest. During the week of Dec. 24, tonnage increased only slightly from the week of Dec. 10, when the city set a three-month weekly low at 1,510.7 tons, Hunt said. Both figures were well below the previous three-month average of 1,649.12 tons per week. The figure increased to 1,817 tons during the week of Dec. 31, falling short of the three-month high of 1,891.2 tons during the week of Nov. 26. Christmas trees are being collected through January for free — without the need for a 50-cent green waste sticker — and can be dropped at the city’s green waste site at 10401 E. 56th St. North from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. seven days a week. For curbside pickup, trees must be no longer than 6 feet and must have no lights, tinsel or ornaments. Some residents may have forgotten those stipulations, which are among “a host of reasons” a tree might not be collected, Hunt said. Residents can call 918-5969777 to report accidental missed collections or find out why their tree has been passed over, she said. Tax credits: Three city councilors said last week that they have no regrets about supporting $14 million in federal affordable housing tax credits over 10 years for the acquisition and rehabilitation of the apartment complex where four women were gunned down Monday. The City Council approved a resolution Oct. 18 expressing the city’s support for the application by Midwest Development Partners of Kansas City, Mo., which is putting together a deal that could place the Fairmont Terrace apartments, 1111 E. 60th St., in the hands of local owners. Support of the local governing body is required as part of the application process for federal


day as crews with Sherwood Construction Company begin their estimated $8 million construction project. The project was moved up in ODOT’s schedule this year in response to additional funding availability and a high crash rate, ODOT spokeswoman Kenna Mitchell said previously. Drivers were failing to yield along 116th Street North, Mitchell said. The project will include dedicated ramps for entering and leaving the highway, according to ODOT plans.

Council action

Public safety group: Tulsa Police Chief Chuck Jordan said Thursday that he would support an effort by the City Council to establish a public safety intelligence working group immediately to explore ways to improve communication between residents and the police. “In areas of the city where we have had tremendous success — Washington Heights (a neighborhood near Apache Street and Peoria Avenue) is always one I like to point to — it has been community involvement that has been the tipping point that has gotten us over the edge, so we encourage and solicit any community help we can get,” Jordan told councilors during an afternoon committee meeting. The police chief was asked to attend the meeting to answer questions in the wake of Monday’s quadruple homicide at the

Fairmont Terrace. Jordan acknowledged the limits on what can be gained through crime tip lines and other anonymous methods of gathering information from the public, noting that often it’s criminals looking for lighter sentences who provide important leads. Still, he added, “If we know we’ve got people dealing dope in an apartment, if we know we’ve got people committing violent acts, we need to be told about it and who it is. That would help us tremendously. We could then get on it before a tragedy occurs.” Bynum proposed creating the working group. “What I am hearing is, ‘What can we (as residents) be doing to make the community safer?’ “ Bynum said. Representatives of the Tulsa Police Department, the Tulsa County Sheriff’s Office, the U.S. Marshal’s Office, the Mayor’s Office and local media outlets will be invited to be part of the working group, Bynum said, as well as anyone law enforcement might suggest. The working group is expected to report back to the council in 30 days.

Human Rights commissioner reappointed: City Councilors voted

Thursday to reject a request by Mayor Dewey Bartlett to hold off on a vote to reappoint Dennis Dubois to the Human Rights Commission and then voted 7-2 to reappoint him. Bartlett failed to nominate a replacement for Dubois within 60 days, giving the council the right to reappoint him. Bartlett sent a letter to councilors last month noting concerns about Dubois’ nomination that came to light during the city’s investigation into Lana Turner-Addison, the city’s former Human Rights Department director. Turner-Addison was fired in September. Reporter to be honored: City councilors and Mayor Dewey Bartlett agreed Thursday to name the City Council Chamber’s media area for former Tulsa World reporter Brian Barber. Barber, 39, died Wednesday after a long struggle with heart failure and complications caused by anti-rejection drugs related to two heart transplants. He became a reporter for the World in 1996 and started covering City Hall in 2004. “I know that whenever I walk into this room, I always looked at that chair in that box to where he sat and did his work, his craft,” Bartlett said during Thursday night’s City Council meeting. The mayor suggested that a plaque with Barber’s date of birth, date of death and the position he held at the World be affixed to the short room-divider wall that designates the area where journalists covering meetings sit, “to make note that this is Brian Barber’s box and chair.” — KEVIN CANFIELD and ZACK STOYCOFF, World Staff Writers

affordable housing tax credits, which are administered by the Oklahoma Housing Finance Agency. “The reason I was supportive was that that area needs all the help it can get, and there is only so much local government can do,” said City Councilor G.T. Bynum, whose District 9 includes the apartment complex. “So when you have the private sector that is willing to step up and improve the overall security of the facility, I thought it (was a good idea).” City Councilor Jeannie Cue, whose District 2 also includes part of the crime-ridden 61st Street and Peoria Avenue area, said it is her understanding that a local company is among the investors interested in purchasing the apartments. “Our agreement was that they would improve security because that was a concern residents had expressed to me,” Cue said. The real estate purchase contract lists Midwest Development Partners as the buyer at a cost of $18 million. A separate document lists the overall development cost at $42.6 million. Bynum said the local investment in the project played a big role in his support for the tax credit application. “I wanted to make sure this just wasn’t another in a long line of out-of-state investors who use the apartments in that area to get federal subsidies at the expense of our community,” he said. City Councilor Phil Lakin was one of several councilors who questioned representatives of Midwest Development Partners about the company’s security plans for the property. “They said all the right things to indicate to me that they are really going to work here to make that a safer apartment complex,” Lakin said. “Then that will provide a lot of momentum that could cause the rest of the neighborhood to change.”

The school district also has tightened institutional controls and adopted, among other items, a whistleblower policy. Allen, Galen Driskill and Suzette Blankenship are the lone remaining school board members from February 2010. Susan Ridenour and Mike Mullins round out the panel. “I think we’re a tighterknit group,” Allen said. “And we’ve used that experience to kind of enlighten our new ones. “We’ve gone through hard times and we’re still there. We want to be there.” For righting a listing ship, Thomas praised the work of Kem Keithly, interim superintendent from November 2010 to July 2011, saying his financial acumen set the stage for the district’s recovery. He also said the passage of last year’s bond question shows progress. “That’s what it amounts to — the trust factor,” said Thomas, a former Oologah superintendent who became Skiatook’s top administrator in the summer of ’11. “Are we doing what we say we are doing?” “I was familiar enough with the community and the district ... I knew there were a lot more positives than negatives. They had some tough things that they were going through. But I knew enough people in the area and I knew it was a good town and a good school district with good people.” Enos, 60, and Johnson, 57, remain entangled in litigation, with a federal sentencing date looming next month. In October, both pleaded guilty in federal court to a charge accusing them of fil-


remarks from all of the state’s living former speakers of the Oklahoma House, including Rex Privett, who founded the ball, Free said. Privett served as House speaker from 1967 until 1973. Ross rose to fame in the 1960s as a founding member and lead singer of The Supremes. The Motown group had numerous hit singles, including “Where Did Our Love Go,” “Baby Love” and “Stop in the Name of Love.” After going solo, Ross continued her success, with hits like “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough.” She is currently on tour and will perform at the WinStar Casino in Thackerville on Feb. 2 and at the Hardrock Hotel & Casino Tulsa on Feb. 5. Shannon said that he wanted the entertainment to be

ing false federal income tax returns and accepting and soliciting bribes in connection with the Skiatook Public Schools case. Their sentencing in U.S. District Court is set for Feb. 7. In Tulsa County District Court, Enos pleaded guilty in May to state charges of offering bribes totaling $10,000 to Johnson while he was the district’s superintendent. Enos was sentenced to 10 years of probation and was ordered to pay restitution of $420,606. Johnson pleaded guilty to four counts of accepting cash bribes and in June was sentenced to 15 years’ probation. He was ordered to pay $236,591 in restitution. Thus far, Enos has reimbursed the school district $78,607 and Johnson $29,000, said Tulsa County District Attorney Tim Harris, who maintains that probation for the defendants benefits the school more. “Having these guys out there busting their butt and repaying that money to the students who they stole it from, I still think that was better justice,” the prosecutor said. “I’d rather have this kind of sentence hanging over their heads and them out there making payments every month. Hopefully, we’ll get everything paid and those kids will be made whole.” Enos is making restitution of about $3,000 monthly, Johnson $1,200, Harris said. If they fail to make successive payments, prosecutors can file an application to revoke their probation and place them in prison, the district attorney said. “So far, they are paying like clockwork,” Harris said.

significant and something that people will remember. “It is really about the optimism that exists in the state of Oklahoma and this lady is a legend in the music world,” Shannon said. “I think it will be representative of a great start to the legislative session.” Those who attend the event go to several events a year, but the ball represents the one event focused on the legislative session, Shannon said. “There has been so much success in Oklahoma, so much prosperity,” Shannon said. “We wanted an event that would reflect that. I think this is a great way to do it. Again, it is about the charity we will be donating to but it is also about looking forward to the future for the state of Oklahoma and there is a lot of optimism out there and a lot of opportunity.” Barbara Hoberock 405-528-2465

Those sessions will be preceded by a gathering at Helmerich Park, 7301 S. Riverside Parkway from 8 a.m. to 9:30 a.m., during which people will look across the Arkansas River at nesting bald eagles. On Saturday, Bill Weisrock, a selfdescribed amateur photographer, was attempting to get a good shot of one the birds. Meanwhile, Gary Weaver said he showed up on the wickedly cold morning hoping to get a good look at an eagle for the first time. Humphrey said part of that appeal is due to the size of bald eagles. He said their wingspans can measure six feet or longer, meaning that they create quite a scene as they swoop through the air. Kennington suggested their predatory nature may have something to do with their popularity, although he said that the screeching sound one hears in some film footage is actually dubbed in from other types of birds with more impressive voices. Eagles occupy a sacred role in some cultures and are known to practice monogamy. Humphrey said the two that Helmerich Park visitors were viewing on Saturday morning from afar have been together at least seven years. David Harper 918-581-8359

Rep. Mike Reynolds

U.S. Rep. Markwayne Mullin

Takes national stage as spokesgovernor for national association, argues against federal fiscal chaos, for flexibility in dealing with states.

Breaks up the ceremonial predictability of the Legislature’s Organization Day with a floor fight over whether the House could consider a routine motion to regulate lawmakers’ office allowances.

NOTEBOOK Flat tax: State Sen. Patrick

Anderson filed legislation last week to scrap the state’s income tax system and replace it with a flat 2.9 percent tax. “The bottom line is if you replace our current system with a flat tax, then all taxpayers are treated equally,” Anderson said. Democrats wasted no time criticizing the plan, saying it would increase the tax burden of lowand middle-income Oklahomans. “It may be revenue-neutral to the state, but it’s devastating to the poor, to the disabled, to veterans and to retirees,” said House Democratic leader Scott Inman of Del City. As written, the bill would do away with all tax deductions, exemptions and credits. Non-partisan elections: Republicans will take another run at nonpartisan county elections this session. Rep. Josh Cockroft, R-Tecumseh, has filed pieces of legislation to do so for sheriff elections and all county offices. Republicans are particularly keen on nonpartisan county elections because they see it as a gateway to eliminating Democrats’ last stronghold — county offices in southern Oklahoma.

he struggles to put together his children’s some-assembly-required Christmas presents, he finds it helpful to set aside the instructions and look at the picture on the box. Oklahoma is already on its way to being that “picture on the box” for other states to see how conservative values can produce a prosperous, low-tax, high-employment economy, he told the House. “The picture is not quite complete but what’s taking shape is a state that leads in job growth, has lower taxes, values human life and balances the budget,” he said. In the audience for Shannon’s speech was U.S. Rep. Tom Cole, and the new House speaker referred to the Fourth District Republican as his “mentor.” Cole’s political career took him from the state Capitol to the U.S. Capitol, and it wouldn’t be hard to imagine Shannon trying to follow that same path. Shannon didn’t hesitate to plunge ahead into national politics. At one point he offered President Obama a pithy pointer on how the United States can balance its budget as the state of Oklahoma does. “Mr. President, if you’re listening, I’ll give you a hint: the key is controlling spending, not raising taxes,” Shannon said. Later, he laid down his marker in a strident defense of state’s rights. “Today we live in a country with an out-of-control federal government that is bankrupt both financially and morally,” Shannon said. “As a result we have fewer freedoms, we pay more

taxes than we should, and there is little hope of these things changing under our president and this current Congress. “So let me say this: The state of Oklahoma will not go down the path of Washington, D.C. Not on my watch.” It’s obvious, Shannon said, that he is conservative, and, on that point, he is correct. But his speech — though forthright in its Republican doctrine — also sought to ease the partisan tensions of the Capitol. He didn’t blush about his beliefs, but he delivered them in a friendly, open fashion. For all its directness, the speech didn’t have a partisan feel to it. His repeated reminders to both sides of the aisle was that the House’s business isn’t the party’s business. It is the people’s business. The people don’t wake up thinking of themselves as conservatives or liberals, and the politicians in Oklahoma City could benefit from organizing their thoughts that same way, he said. “If anything, they wake up and ask themselves, how can I provide a sense of prosperity for me and my family,” Shannon said. “Ladies and gentlemen, that is the key. It’s not really about labels, is it? “It’s about doing what’s right to see the next generation prospers, regardless of party or philosophy. We can come together and find common ground. We can make Oklahoma that picture on the box for the rest of the country.” Wayne Greene 918-581-8308

Wife arrested in husband’s death OWASSO — An Owasso woman was arrested Friday night after a domestic dispute turned deadly. Tulsa County Sheriff’s deputies were dispatched to the 9200 block of East 116th Street North just after 9 p.m. Friday after Vickie Lou McNeely, 69, called 911 stating she had shot her husband after he came toward her with a knife, deputies said. Deputies arrived and found Daniel McNeely in the hallway to the left of the front door in a kneeling position with his head against the floor.

JAILED Vickie Lou McNeely: The 69-year-old called 911 stating she had shot her husband after he came toward her with a knife, Tulsa County Sheriff’s deputies said. To the left of his head were two silver kitchen knives, deputies said. He had what appeared to be five bullet

wounds, including one to the back of the head. Deputies discovered a .38-caliber revolver with a five-shot cylinder with all five rounds spent. Vickie Lou McNeely smelled of alcohol and had slurred speech, deputies said. Deputies transported her to the Sheriff’s Office and then to the Tulsa Jail, where she was booked on complaints of first-degree murder. — MIKE AVERILL, World Staff Writer

A Tulsa County jury imposed sentences of life and 40 years in prison in connection with a shooting case where a man was killed and a woman survived being shot. Jurors on Friday found Channen Ray Ozell Smith guilty of first-degree murder in the killing of Dominique Eugene Jasper, who was shot on Oct. 23, 2010, outside a residence in the 1800 block of North HarSmith vard Avenue. Jasper, 26, died about three weeks later. The life sentence for murder requires Smith, 23, to serve more than 38 years behind bars before being eligible for parole. Smith was also convicted of shooting with intent to

kill, related to the wounding of a woman at the scene, Carlameisha Jefferson. Smith got a 20-year term for that crime. Smith was also found guilty of possessing a firearm as a felon and discharging a firearm into a dwelling. He incurred two 10-year sentences for those offenses. Assistant District Attorney Gary Davis said at the trial that two eyewitnesses identified Smith as the shooter. Retaliation for a recent assault and fight was one motive for the shooting, with evidence indicating that Smith fired a semi-automatic handgun, according to Davis. Assistant Public Defender Glen Dresback presented an alibi defense for Smith, asserting that he was in Claremore and not at the shooting scene. In January 2011, Smith was sentenced to seven years in prison when his probation for drug and gun-possession offenses was revoked, records show.

Subsidized coverage: Who’s in, who’s out Without Medicaid expansion in Oklahoma, roughly 200,000 people, mostly adults, will remain ineligible for the program. Among those are tens of thousands of parents. Many of these parents and others, totaling anywhere from 130,000 to 170,000 people, will be stuck in a crater next year, earning too much to get Medicaid but not enough to qualify to buy subsidized coverage on a federal health exchange, an online insurance market. Here’s an example of what a low-income Oklahoma family with two parents and two children will face, based on figures from 2012. The children are already covered by Medicaid. • If the parents earn $6,996 or less: They’re eligible for Medicaid. • If the parents earn more than $6,996 but less than $23,050 (100 percent of the federal poverty level): The parents are stuck in a “crater,” earning too much to get Medicaid and too little to qualify for buying on the federal health exchange using tax credits that cover most of the cost of premiums. • If the parents earn more than $23,050 but less than $92,200 (400 percent of the federal poverty level): The parents are not eligible for Medicaid. However, they can purchase subsidized insurance on the federal exchange. Depending on their income, their cost of premiums will be capped at anywhere from 2 percent to 9.5 percent of their income. Those earning up to 250 percent of the poverty level will also get subsidies for other costs, such as deductibles, co-payments and coinsurance.

The Affordable Care Act offers two main avenues to health insurance coverage starting Jan. 1, 2014. One is through Medicaid expansion, encompassing those with incomes up to 133 percent of the federal poverty level, currently $30,657 for a family of four. The other is through a government health-care exchange where people can shop for plans online. People making between 100 percent and 400 percent of the poverty level can buy insurance on the exchange using tax credits to cover most of the cost. Fallin decided not to set up a state health-care exchange for Oklahoma, so a federal one will serve the state instead. Oklahomans who would have been eligible for expanded Medicaid are a diverse group, according to the Urban Institute study, released in August. More than half are between ages 19 and 35, and more than threefourths live below the federal poverty level, which is $11,170 for an individual and $23,050 for a family of four. About 60 percent are white. About 24 percent are parents, compared to 18 percent nationally, the study found. The study pegged at 225,000 the total number of Oklahoma adults who would have gained coverage under expanded Medicaid. The Oklahoma Health Care Authority estimates the number at about 200,000. William Noel, pastor of Grace and Glory Baptist Church in northeast Oklahoma City, which sponsors a free clinic, said many people would be surprised at the variety of uninsured Oklahomans. “These aren’t homeless people who don’t have jobs,” he said. “In our free clinic, we see people all the time from various professions — teachers, small-business owners and a lot of truck drivers. “In fact, I don’t have insurance,” added Noel, saying his church can’t afford the coverage.

Low-income adults

low the federal poverty level. His employer has seven workers and doesn’t offer health insurance. The couple’s best hope may be to raise their income to just above the poverty level, so they are in the window of between 100 percent and 400 percent that allows them to get discount coverage on the health exchange. This could become a goal for thousands of Oklahomans living just below the poverty line. One risk is that the subsidies could go away if a lawsuit filed by Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt is successful. The lawsuit contends that the federal health law is worded in such a way that subsidies can be offered only through state exchanges, not the federal one that Oklahoma will have. Greg Rogers is already trying to boost his pay. He awakens at 5 a.m. and works at his full-time job until about 3:45 p.m. He then attends classes as part of a three-year apprenticeship that will ultimately earn him a certification that can lead to higher pay. The apprenticeship costs $27,000. “I remember one day a man (from an outside insurer) came to talk to us at work about signing us up for health insurance,” Greg said. “I knew I couldn’t afford it before he even began to talk. Right now, I have money taken out of each check to pay for the apprenticeship. We need every penny I make just to get by. “I’ll be honest, I worry a lot about my health. I pray nothing happens to me. If something did happen, it would be devastating to my wife and kids.”

The family’s options The Rogerses ran into trouble a year ago when Keta Rogers was laid off from the Del City Housing Authority. She was six months’ pregnant at the time, so she qualified for temporary assistance from SoonerCare. Today, the couple’s three children — Maeahja, 14; Elisha, 12; and Triumph, 10 months — are all covered by SoonerCare. But Greg and Keta Rogers don’t qualify. Greg Rogers’ annual income of $27,000 is well above the $8,184 limit for parents in a family of five to get Medicaid and just be-

Low-income adults are most at risk of being uninsured. They generally do not qualify for Medicaid. To qualify, they must fit a specific category, such as being pregnant or disabled. That is the case in most states. Ineligible adults include many parents. For a family of four in Oklahoma, nondisabled parents must make $6,996 or less a year to get SoonerCare, unless they fall into one of the categories. “Basically, for parents to qualify for SoonerCare, they have to be essentially destitute,” said Carter Kimble, a spokesman for the Oklahoma Health Care Authority. The Urban Institute estimated that 53,000 parents in Oklahoma would have gotten Medicaid with the expansion. About 60 percent of those are in the “crater,” so they won’t be able to buy affordable coverage on the health exchange. Without Medicaid or employer insurance, uninsured parents and other adults have relatively few options: • They can obtain coverage through Insure Oklahoma, which offers subsidized plans

to individuals and workers at small businesses. The program is now limited to about 35,000 enrollees, and participating businesses must have a qualified health plan. Weintz, Fallin’s spokesman, said the governor is looking at expanding Insure Oklahoma to offer more affordable care. But on Jan. 1, 2014, Insure Oklahoma will lose nearly two-thirds of its government funding when federal matching money stops, said Jo Kilgore, a spokeswoman for the state Health Care Authority. Said Weintz: “We’re hoping that won’t happen, but it is true that funding for that is in jeopardy.” • An insured worker at a business with fewer than 25 employees can seek discounted coverage through an Affordable Care Act program. But the employers must meet certain criteria and do not have to participate. • People who earn between 100 percent and 400 percent of the poverty level can use tax credits to purchase coverage from the health exchange in 2014. The poorest of that group will pay no more than 2 percent of their income on premiums, as well as get a subsidy for other health costs. • The uninsured can continue seeking health care at hospital emergency rooms or free clinics around the state. In general, for Oklahoma parents and others in the “crater,” the prospects for getting coverage look bleak, some health experts said. “Is help on the way?” said Robin Rudowitz, associate director of the Kaiser Commission on Medicaid and the Uninsured. “No … states that turned down the money (for expanded Medicaid) have now missed a major opportunity to help those who otherwise can’t afford health insurance.”

NORMAN — The tweet was sent by James Fraschilla on Saturday morning, the Oklahoma reserve using social media to speak for his team: “Gotta make a statement and take a big step in achieving our goals.” The Sooners won’t know about their NCAA tournament goals for several weeks, of course. But the step taken several hours later in a 77-68 victory over Oklahoma State seemed big. OU showed some real growth in starting fast and finishing strong against its most talented opponent to date.

A Steven Pledger steal triggered a breakout, and Buddy Hield’s layup followed for the day’s first points. The Sooners struck again in transition for a Je’lon Hornbeak lay-in.

OU hopes win has meaning come March


ORMAN — Don’t look now — as the weather showed us Saturday, it’s still only January — but maybe what Oklahoma showed over the last 9½ minutes of a 77-68 Bedlam victory over Oklahoma State was what the Sooners missed so much during the previous three seasons. Winning. More accurately, a will to win, and the maturity and composure to withstand a challenge, especially when a win starts to slip away. OU built a 14-point lead in the first half, stretched it back

to 14 early in the second half, then looked almost powerless as the Cowboys cut away, possession by possession, toward their first win in the Lloyd Noble Center since 2004. Only, O-State never got the lead. Never tied it. Got within 52-50, and that was it.

Oklahoma, instead of losing another lead and stumbling to another defeat, suddenly showed poise and retook control of the game. The Cowboys (11-4 overall, 1-2 in Big 12 play) have lost three of their last four, but beating a talented OSU team that just dropped out of the polls is no small feat for the Sooners. This goes down as OU’s best victory since winning at Kansas State last season. Of course, that was a January game, too. What really counts for college basketball teams is an ability to finish the regular

HORSE RACING Oaklawn Park Due to inclement weather, racing has been canceled for Saturday and Sunday. Racing will resume Thursday.


NHL lockout ends, training camps set to open: The NHL’s four-month lockout finally ended Saturday night following another tough negotiation that nearly delayed training camps even longer. The league and the players’ association completed a required memorandum of understanding that had to be signed before camps were cleared to open. That will happen on Sunday with a 48-game regular season to begin on Jan. 19. The NHL also was set to release the long-awaited schedule, minus the 510 games that were lost to the lockout. It took all week and much longer than expected on Saturday for the memorandum to be completed. The announcement that it was finished came several hours after the union easily ratified the tentative deal reached last Sunday. The more than 700 union members had a 36-hour window from Thursday night until Saturday morning to vote electronically. The NHL board of governors unanimously approved the deal on Wednesday.

OU’s Legesse breaks school record: OU senior Frezer

Legesse began the indoor track and field season by breaking the school record in the men’s 1,000-meter run at the Nittany Lion Challenge in University Park, Pa., Saturday afternoon. The Oklahoma City native bested a 27-year-old record set by Tim Renihan in 1986 (2:23.3) when he crossed the finish line in 2:22.76 for third. Legesse shaved nearly two full seconds off his previous best time in the event (2:24.73), which stood fourth in the Oklahoma record books.

Struggling Mavericks won’t trade Nowitzki Mark Cuban says he plans to keep star Dirk Nowitzki even though the Dallas Mavericks have their worst record since a few months after he bought the team in 2000. Cuban said before Saturday night’s game against Memphis that he wanted to be clear with Nowitzki that he was committed “through thick and thin” to getting the team back in contention. Dallas recently fell 10 games under .500 for the first time since Nowitzki’s second season in 19992000. The Mavericks won the title in 2011. — ASSOCIATED PRESS

Magic ends skid, beats Clippers BY BETH HARRIS Associated Press

LOS ANGELES — Two streaking teams going in opposite directions. The Clippers, co-owners of the NBA’s best record and on a roll at home. The Magic, playing opponents close only to fall short while piling up the franchise’s longest skid since the 2003-04 season. Something had to give, and this time, it was the Clippers. J.J. Redick gave Orlando its first lead of the game on a 3-pointer with 42 seconds left, Arron Afflalo tied his season high with 30 points, and the Magic won 104-101 on Saturday to snap a 10game skid. “It wasn’t a letdown by us. Don’t try to take anything away from them,” Clippers

guard Chris Paul said. “They made tough shot after tough shot. J.J. Reddick had a hand in his face half the time.” The loss ended the Clippers’ franchise-record, 13game home-winning streak and provided them with a scare when All-Star Paul went down holding his right knee with 54 seconds to go. “It was real scary,” Paul said. “I was looking up, trying to run down the ball, and J.J. Redick and I bumped knees.” Paul returned after a timeout and hit a 15-footer to draw his team within one with 33 seconds left. But the Clippers turned the ball over on Jamal Crawford’s offensive foul, with Redick drawing the charge. “I got the ball in transition and I thought I saw Matt (Barnes) over there,”

Crawford said. “I thought I made the right decision, but J.J. Redick guessed right. I thought he was going to rotate, so I faced it. When I put the ball down he stayed there, so lucky guess.” Josh McRoberts found Nikola Vucevic open under the basket, and Vucevic dunked to extend Orlando’s lead to 104-101 with 8 seconds left. After a timeout, Crawford missed a 3-pointer as time expired. The Clippers were 6 of 6 from the free throw line, and Orlando was 15 of 19. “That’s unheard of,” Paul said. “Blake (Griffin) takes 22 shots and no free throws. That’s not typical for us.” Griffin, a former Oklahoma star, tied his season-high with 30 points.

NFL NOTEBOOK Chiefs hire Packers’ Dorsey as general manager: The Kansas City

Chiefs have hired longtime Packers personnel man John Dorsey to replace the fired Scott Pioli as their general manager. The Chiefs announced the hiring while the Packers were playing the San Francisco 49ers in the NFC playoffs on Saturday night. Dorsey will be introduced at a news conference Monday. Dorsey, who played linebacker for the Packers in the 1980s, was instrumental in building Green Bay into a perennial contender. He was the director of college scouting from 2000-12, and spent last year as the director of football operations. Dorsey also worked with new Chiefs coach Andy Reid from 1992-98, when Reid was an assistant coach for the Packers. Reid was hired to replace Romeo Crennel on Jan. 4.

last month against Baltimore. That raised questions whether Redskins coach Mike Shanahan should have let Griffin in either game after it was clear the quarterback was hurt. Goodell said it was a “medical decision” and noted Griffin had no problem with it, either. “Now, people can argue whether it was the wrong decision, but it was a medical decision and that’s what we want it to be,” Goodell said. “Will we make further changes? Yeah, I would anticipate we will. We’ll always look at that and try to see what else we can do to make sure the proper medical attention is being given, that they make the best medical evaluation and it’s their determination to make.” Asked if independent doctors were needed on the sideline, not those chosen by the team, Goodell insisted the physicians were impartial. “When you say independent, all these doctors work for other institutions,” he said. “And they’re well-respected and the medical care in the NFL is

outstanding. And if they have a concussion, they have to see an independent neurologist before they’re cleared to play.”

Bradley is the eighth candidate interviewed since the Eagles fired Andy Reid on Dec. 31 following a 4-12 finish. The people spoke on condition of anonymity because the teams aren’t commenting on the interview. Seattle plays the Falcons in a NFC divisional playoff game on Sunday. If Bradley is their guy, the Eagles can’t officially hire him until the Seahawks are eliminated. “Well, it’s flattering.

S.F. Austin hands ORU loss Stephen F. Austin 61, ORU 50


STEPHEN F AUSTIN (14-1, 5-0) Reb Min FG 3pt FT O-T F Pt.

World Sports Writer

Stephen F. Austin — solid in virtually every statistical category that counts — is the epitome of the team that doesn’t beat itself. In order for the Lumberjacks to lose, somebody is going to have to (easier said than done) beat them. Oral Roberts wasn’t up to the task. In a battle of programs picked to finish in the top two of the Southland Conference, Stephen F. Austin showed why it is the nation’s top defensive team and flummoxed preseason favorite ORU 61-50 Saturday night. The Lumberjacks won a ninth consecutive game, improved to 14-1 and left the Mabee Center alone at the top of the Southland standings with a 5-0 league record. A victory would have given ORU (8-8, 3-1) sole possession of the conference lead. Instead, the Golden Eagles’ 17-game winning streak in conference home games came to an end. “We got beat by a very good basketball team, a team that is playing with a tremendous amount of confidence and is extremely well-coached,” ORU coach Scott Sutton said. “They’ve got tough, tough kids. Smart kids. And the bottom line is we didn’t match their toughness tonight. We have six weeks to figure out how to get our guys a little bit toughened up and I have a lot of respect for how (the Lumberjacks) play the game and how they coach the game. I give them all the credit in the world. But our guys, again,

ORU NOTEBOOK More toughness needed: During a press conference following a 61-50 homecourt loss to Stephen F. Austin, Oral Roberts coach Scott Sutton suggested more than once that his team needed more toughness. For instance, Sutton said he wanted players to step up and take charges and the Golden Eagle who is best at that missed a fifth consecutive game. Junior forward Steven Roundtree was injured in a practice prior to a Dec. 28 game at Memphis and hasn’t played since. Unfortunately, Roundtree is dealing with more than an

bottom line, didn’t match their toughness.” Stephen F. Austin coach Danny Kaspar perhaps has constructed the nation’s most fundamentally sound midmajor hoops squad. Aside from allowing the fewest points per game in Division I, his Lumberjacks rank 28th nationally in field goal percentage, 15th in rebounding margin, 12th in assists, 24th in assist-to-turnover ratio, ninth in steals and seventh in turnover margin. And then there’s this: The Lumberjacks are able to play constrictor defense without

fouling, ranking 16th in fewest fouls per game and committing only three first-half fouls while holding ORU to 38.5 shooting before halftime. Sutton continued to praise the way Stephen F. Austin does business, but he said his team (which finished with a .375 shooting percentage) did a poor job of being patient and getting the ball inside. When the Golden Eagles managed to get the ball inside, Sutton said they did a poor job of finishing shots. And he suggested it’s all tied into showing not-enough-toughness under duress. You don’t want to play catchup against a team that has held 47 consecutive opponents under 70 points, but ORU started the game 3-of-7 from the field, scored six points in the first 11 minutes and trailed by 12 points with seven minutes left in the first half. The Golden Eagles got as close as four, but the Lumberjacks bled the margin back to 15, sometimes burning a

significant chunk of the shot clock before cashing a basket. Redshirt freshman point guard D.J. Jackson, who led ORU with 13 points, said it’s hard to come back on a team like that. He said Stephen F. Austin players made “incredible” shots with the clock winding down. ORU completed its first — and biggest — league homestand of the season with a split of two games. Sutton said the Golden Eagles and this week’s opponents (Northwestern State and Stephen F. Austin) appear to be the teams with the best chance of winning the conference. Losing to one of them at home complicates the task of winning the league. He said ORU will get to play both of them on the road later this season, but “you certainly can’t afford to stub your toe again and lose a game you shouldn’t.”

injury. The coach said Roundtree lost a grandfather the same day (Tuesday) that Patsy Sutton, mother of Scott Sutton and ORU assistant coach Sean Sutton, died. Scott Sutton said Roundtree will go home to attend the funeral and won’t travel with the team to road games next week at Texas A&M-Corpus Christi and Sam Houston State. “We’re hoping we get him back for the two games the following week,” Sutton said, referring to a Jan. 24-26 homestand against Lamar and McNeese State. Regarding Roundtree’s health

status, Sutton said Roundtree is “just not there yet.” Coming home: Stephen F. Austin sophomore forward Jacob Parker is from Bixby. He scored a career-best 16 points and hit 7-of-10 shots in a victory at Tulsa earlier this season. He scored seven points and grabbed seven rebounds to help the Lumberjacks go 2-0 against the city’s two Division I programs. Sutton name-dropped Parker without being asked about him. The coach was talking about how Stephen F. Austin has tough, smart players who don’t try to do things they can’t do. “Take Jacob Parker,” Sutton said. “He’s a great example.

Sutton said ORU looked at Parker a little bit during the recruiting process. Sutton complimented Stephen F. Austin coach Danny Kaspar for seeing something in Parker that fit the Lumberjacks’ style of play. “He comes in there and he’s a very, very effective player,” Sutton said. “They’ve got a team full of those guys.” Streak over: Stephen F. Austin ended ORU’s 17-game homecourt winning streak against league opponents. The Lumberjacks became the first conference opponent to win at the Mabee Center since Oakland on Dec. 30, 2010. — JIMMIE TRAMEL, World Sports Writer

Fortunately for the Golden Eagles, so did Jaci Bigham. The senior point guard leads the Southland Conference and ranks seventh nationally in assists.

sinking a shot 14:30 before halftime. The Golden Eagles were 1-of-15 before making their second basket. That one was courtesy of Bigham, too. “Obviously a lot of teams in our conference know that’s what I want to do is get the ball to my teammates, but we were not hitting,” Bigham said after matching a seasonhigh with 17 points. So, she decided to take advantage of what the defense gave her, at least until teammates heated up. Bigham, who scored 13 of ORU’s first 26 points, eventually got around to what she does best, finishing with 10 assists (she has 10 or more in each of the last four games) and quarterbacking an offense that had only seven turnovers.

Junior guard Christian Key, who matched a seasonhigh with 17 points in her previous game, scored a career-high 20 points and was 6-of-12 from 3-point range in the second game of a homestand as ORU improved to 6-8 overall and 3-1 in conference games. “My teammates are just getting me good looks,” Key said. Bigham overheard Key and interjected this: “I think it’s a little bit of Christian, too.” ORU coach Misti Cussen wasn’t worried about the early misses. She said she couldn’t have been happier with her team’s shot selection to start the game. “There was just a lid on the basket,” she said. Or at least there was until Bigham pried it off. By

5:58 of the first half, she was 4-of-6 from the field and the rest of the Golden Eagles were 4-of-21. Perhaps it was a good omen that ORU still managed a 24-21 lead. The Golden Eagles shot 25 percent in the first half and led by a point. Porsha Roberts, who last season was named the Southland Conference’s preseason freshman of the year, produced 16 points and 13 rebounds for Stephen F. Austin (6-10, 1-4). LaNesha Middleton, a freshman forward from Stillwater and the daughter of OSU’s men’s basketball assistant Steve Middleton, made her second start and first since the season opener.

“That is a really good victory for us because Oral Roberts is a very good team,” said Stephen F. Austin coach Danny Kaspar. “They are a quality team with a lot of great basketball tradition. “I know Scott and Sean (Sutton) do a great job and I know this has been a really tough week for them. I have nothing but the most respect for the entire Sutton family.” In three trips to Oklahoma this season, Stephen F. Austin is 3-0 (swept Oklahoma, Tulsa and Oral Roberts) and gave up just 146 points (48.6 per game). Lucky for Oklahoma State that the Lumberjacks won’t be visiting Stillwater this winter. “Those are all great programs so we feel pretty fortunate to get those wins,” said Kaspar. “This game was even more important because it was a league victory. “We’ve won five league games so far and three of them on the road. So, yes, I feel pretty good about where we are right now.” We may not know where ORU fits into the Southland Conference but there’s little question that Stephen F. Austin is at the top. “We got beat by a very good basketball team,” said Sutton. “They’ve got tough, smart kids and we did not match their toughness. “We have six weeks to figure it out in our conference. It is still early in the league season.” The Lumberjacks, as they did in a rout at Tulsa earlier this season, turned this into an easy road victory with defense. Oral Roberts scored just 29 points in the first 29 minutes of this game as SFA built a 10-point lead. ORU scored just 21 points in the first half. Stephen F. Austin has made a habit of taking teams out of their normal offense. So it was for the Golden Eagles, who never got into any kind of rhythm. As a result, ORU’s streak of three straight victories to open the Southland Conference is over. Stephen F. Austin, at 5-0 and with a road victory at ORU, appears clearly in command of the conference chase. Stephen F. Austin leads the nation in scoring de-

OU women grind out win over Tech BY GUERIN EMIG

World Sports Writer

NORMAN — It was a grind for Oklahoma against Texas Tech Saturday night at the Lloyd Noble Center. But that’s OK. When you’re down to eight healthy scholarship players, you’ll take wins however you can get them. Right now, the Sooners are getting them. OU’s 65-55 victory over the Lady Raiders was number six in a row. The Sooners have climbed to 14-2 overall and 4-0 in the Big 12 Conference despite losing Whitney Hand and nearly an entire lineup to season-ending injury. They’ve won a few lately with precision and shotmaking. Saturday was more about toughness and defense. “Another really gritty performance by our kids,” OU coach Sherri Coale said.

“This league is not for those who don’t want to get hit,” forward Joanna McFarland said. “It’s physical every night.” McFarland put up a roughand-tumble 14 points and 16 rebounds. She and center

Nicole Griffin (13 points and four rebounds) continue to be OU’s sole sources of production inside. But that wasn’t an issue Saturday. McFarland, in fact, nearly subdued Texas Tech by herself. All she needed was help from one teammate, and one stretch of smooth basketball. The stretch came four minutes into the second half with OU leading 32-31. McFarland scored an easy one out of the media timeout. McFarland poked away a pass for a steal, then finished a fast break on Morgan Hook’s feed. Aaryn Ellenberg swished a 3. McFarland hit a top-of-the-key 3 off an inbound pass. Ellenberg scored off a drive. Nicole Griffin zipped a short jumper. The Sooners put together as much offense in four minutes as they did the other 36, and it helped open up a 48-36 lead. With less than four min-

utes remaining, OU was stuck on 52. Then Ellenberg shook loose for a straightaway 3, a hoop in transition and another swished 3. That pushed the lead to 60-48, and made her 26 points the key statistic of the game. Others included Tech’s 9-of-20 foul shooting, 37 percent shooting from the field and 16 turnovers. It was not a pretty sight, watching the Lady Raiders drop to 12-4 overall and 2-2 in the Big 12. Ellenberg got her 26 while playing all 40 minutes. She didn’t turn the ball over once. Point guard Morgan Hook played another 40. She bobbled it three times, but overcame with seven points, five assists and tireless defense. Like her teammtes, she did what was necessary. It has become a habit for such a shorthanded team. Guerin Emig 918-581-8355

fense at just 50 points per game. It is easy to see why. The Lumberjacks are absolutely suffocating. When ORU tried to go inside to Damon Bell-Holter, who has been on fire lately, he was swarmed. There were no easy shots on the perimeter where just about every jump shot was contested. SFA was all over ORU giving the Golden Eagles few easy buckets. “And, we missed a lot of easy shots,” said Sutton. “That’s toughness. When you maybe get bumped a little bit or something you still have to make those shots.” The first half was especially strong by Stephen F. Austin. ORU scored just 21 points. It hit just 10 field goals (38 percent). The Eagles started the game by hitting just three of their first 12 shots. Just about the only things ORU did well in the first half was rebound (17-15 edge). Otherwise, Stephen F. Austin did to Oral Roberts what it has been doing to teams all year — forcing bad shots from the perimeter. ORU hit just 21 shots in the game (36 percent). Stephen F. Austin wasn’t just another Southland game. SFA has won 14 of its first 15 games including road games at Tulsa (by 16) and Oklahoma. The Lumberjacks are inching ever closer to cracking the top 50 in the RPI. So, this game had even more significance for the Golden Eagles, trying to gain a foothold during a roller-coaster season. As usual, ORU played a wildly challenging December schedule including at Arizona, at Memphis and suffered big blown leads at home in losses to Oklahoma and Tulsa. However, the Golden Eagles had rebounded to opened the league by winning their first three games, including a two-game sweep on the road at Southeastern Louisiana and Nicholls State. Then, in its first Southland Conference game at home, ORU knocked Northwestern State out of a three-way tie at the top of the conference. Stephen F. Austin gave the Eagles a reality check.

Coming off a Big 12 win over No. 17 Kansas, the Cowgirls play at Texas, which has dropped five straight games. OSU has won eight of the last 13 meetings but has split the season series in each of the past five years. The Cowgirls are 3-14 in Austin, with the last win coming on Feb. 18, 2009. Three of OSU’s players are among the Big 12’s top 10 free-throw shooters, including first-place Liz Donohoe, who has 31 consecutive free throws. Lindsey Keller ranks sixth in the league and Tiffany Bias is 10th. In 11 of the Cowgirls’ 12 wins, they have had at least four players score in double figures. They rank third in the country in scoring offense (82.6 points per game) and fourth in assists (19.1 per game). The Longhorns lead the conference in rebounding margin, averaging 13.1 more than their opponents. Nneka Enemkpali is first in the Big 12 with 10.6 rebounds per game. — KELLY HINES, World Sports Writer

OSU NOTEBOOK Hot shot: Oklahoma State did its homework on the Sooners, but the scouting report didn’t include the ability to get hot from 3-point range. “We didn’t expect them to make that many 3s,” Cowboy guard Markel Brown said. “We didn’t expect the certain players who made 3s to make them. “That hurt us, but we adjusted during the game and somehow we still weren’t able to stop it.” OU shot 61.5 percent from behind the arc, a season high.

team entered the game hitting 31 percent of its 3-pointers. Road woes: The Cowboys dropped a second Big 12 road game this season and are 1-18 in conference road games in the past three years. “I think it’s just a big mental approach coming up to a game on the road,” forward Michael Cobbins said. “Basically you’re on the court with yourself. “We’re all that we’ve got, coming into a different atmosphere where everyone is against you instead of being at home where everybody is for

you. You’ve just got to stick together and everybody be on the same page and work it out.” Four for Forte: Freshman sharp-shooter Phil Forte completed a four-point play at a key time in the first half and trimmed OU’s advantage from 12 points to eight. He finished with 12 points and had three 3-pointers. “I thought he played well,” coach Travis Ford said. “We needed his shots to go in, and he’s a guy we count on to make shots. He was the guy that made them.”

Quiet day for Smart: Because of foul trouble, Marcus Smart was held below his scoring average. He had 10 points, three steals, three assists and two rebounds. “Marcus Smart is a terrific player, and with any great player you have to give them a little extra attention,” Sooner coach Lon Kruger said. “The guy that is on him has to work hard and we have to be ready to help in either direction.” Up next: The Cowboys are off until Saturday, when they host Texas Tech at 1 p.m. — KELLY HINES, World Sports Writer

down as a significant Bedlam triumph — but not yet. “We’re a ways from that right now,” Kruger said. “But obviously the tournament doesn’t start today. We’ve got to do a lot of work yet. But this team has the potential to keep rolling and keep maturing, keep making better plays.” They showed plenty of it late in the game on Saturday. OSU had erased most of the Sooners’ big lead, cutting it to 52-47 on Le’Bryan Nash’s driving basket with 11:11 to play. Then, after three

Cowboy free throws made it 52-50 with 9:34 left, the Sooners rose up. Senior Steven Pledger started an 18-7 run with a 3-pointer, then sank three free throws. Freshman Buddy Hield and junior Amath M’Baye added 3s over the next two minutes as the suddenly poised Sooners coolly rebuilt their lead to nine. M’Baye put it away with four minutes to go on a powerful dunk on an inbounds alleyoop pass from senior Sam Grooms that made it 70-57 and sent the crowd and the

Sooner bench into a fizz. “Seemed like we made shots at critical times,” Kruger said. And it wasn’t just shotmaking. After getting within five at the 11:11 mark, Oklahoma State went almost 7½ minutes without a field goal, missing six shots in a row. The Sooners were pulling away with shooting, defense and rebounding.

Jayhawks roll Red Raiders ASSOCIATED PRESS Kevin Young scored 14 points and No. 6 Kansas beat Texas Tech 60-46 on Saturday in Lubbock, Texas, for the Jayhawks’ 13th straight win. Jeff Withey and Travis Releford added 12 points each. Withey pulled down seven rebounds in the first Big 12 road game for Kansas. The Jayhawks (14-1, 2-0 Big 12) trailed briefly early on. They started the second half with a 12-0 run and stretched their lead as the game wore on. Jamal Williams scored 11 points to lead Texas Tech (86, 1-2) and Dejan Kravic added nine points and got eight rebounds. No. 18 Kansas State 65, West Virginia 64: Shane Southwell saw to it that No. 18 Kansas State’s winning streak reached six games. The junior made two free throws with 21 seconds left, then blocked Gary Browne’s layup attempt with 1 second

BIG 12 ROUNDUP to go to preserve the Wildcats’ 65-64 win over West Virginia on Saturday. “We fought too hard for that game,” Southwell said. “We just needed to find a way to win.” Southwell and Rodney McGruder had 17 points each for the Wildcats (13-2, 2-0 Big 12). For Southwell, it was a career high and marked only the second time in double figures over a stretch of a dozen games. Jabarie Hinds had a careerhigh 15 points for West Virginia, (8-7, 1-2). Iowa State 82, Texas 62: After opening Big 12 play with an excruciating loss, Iowa State returned home and ran circles around one of the nation’s best defenses. Freshman Georges Niang scored a season-high 18 points on just seven shots, Will Clyburn added 16 points and Iowa State rolled past Texas

in its Big 12 home opener. Tyrus McGee had 15 points off the bench for the Cyclones (11-4, 1-1 Big 12), who bounced back from a heartbreaking loss at No. 6 Kansas by pounding the struggling Longhorns (8-8, 0-3). Baylor 51, TCU 40: Cory Jefferson had 15 points, including consecutive baskets to start Baylor’s tiebreaking run, and the Bears beat TCU in the first meeting in more than 10 years between the instate rivals that are now Big 12 foes. Jefferson’s floater with 15 minutes left broke a 28-all tie and put Baylor (11-4, 3-0 Big 12) ahead to stay. After a TCU (9-7, 0-3) miss, Jefferson had a shot blocked by Adrick McKinney, but Baylor’s big forward got the ball right back and responded with a two-handed slam dunk. Pierre Jackson, Baylor’s senior point guard, had 11 points and six assists. Charles Hill Jr. had 12 points to lead TCU.

Oklahoma State chopped it down to 38-29 by the break. OU rebuilt it to 45-31 with another hot start out of the locker room. The Sooners’ only taste of adversity followed, thanks to a mini-Le’Bryan Nash burst midway through the second half. The OSU forward finally asserted himself and scored five quick points to bring his team within 52-50 with 9:34 remaining. OU answered that with Pledger’s 3 over Nash, Pledger’s three free throws thanks to Markel Brown’s foul, and Hield’s 3 off Pledger’s set-up. The Cowboys chipped away with some free throws in the meantime, but went 7½ minutes between field goals (both by Nash). By the time M’Baye rose and flushed Sam Grooms’ inbound pass with 4:05 to play, the Sooners had their cushion again, 70-57. OU was home safely at 11-3 overall and 2-0 in the Big 12 Conference. The Sooners now own a nine-game homecourt winning streak against OSU and a fourgame streak overall heading into Wednesday’s home date with struggling Texas Tech. The Cowboys fell to 11-4 and 1-2. They haven’t won in Norman for quite a while, and haven’t won outside of Stillwater much this year.

OU NOTEBOOK Kruger OK with call on Clark:

Saturday’s game hit a potential turning point with 12:43 remaining and Oklahoma ahead 50-43. Sooners forward Cameron Clark had the ball on his baseline about 15 feet from the basket, when he drove on Oklahoma State defender Le’Bryan Nash. Clark appeared to catch Nash’s head while trying to start his move to the hoop, and Clark reeled back. The official closest to the play let action continue for a second or two, then blew his whistle. Officials then reviewed the play at a scorers table monitor and eventually tagged Clark with a two-shot flagrant foul. The Lloyd Noble Center howled as Phil Forte hit both free throws, but to hear OU coach Lon Kruger after the game, the call was correct. “Cam felt bad about it,” he said, “but if you rip the ball across and your elbow gets above shoulder-high, that’s just a rule. You can’t do that. Cam understood.” Forte had two good 3-point looks after his free throw, but missed both. When Romero Osby drove by Philip Jurick and scored, the Sooners kept their seven-point lead at 52-45.

A challenging early schedule — particularly losses to Gonzaga in Orlando and at Arkansas, and tight wins at Oral Roberts, against Texas A&M in Oklahoma City and last week in the Big 12 opener against West Virginia — “forced us to have to play with our backs to the wall,” said senior Romero Osby. Then again, so did the last three seasons. The four se-

“There’s some kind of spell on us,” Brown figured of OSU’s road woes. Saturday, actually, was more Sooners than magic. Osby took OSU’s big men outside and shot over them en route to 17 points. M’Baye closed with 15 points. Hield contributed 15 points, five assists and four rebounds. Pledger made just two field goals, but still found his way to 11 points to go with nine rebounds. Brown led the Pokes with 19 points. Nash and Forte scored 12 apiece, while foultroubled freshman Marcus Smart scored 10 on 3-of-10 shooting. OSU went just 6-of-21 from 3-point range and shot 39 percent from the field overall. “Give OU credit,” said Cowboys coach Travis Ford. “They made big shots when they needed them … We fought back, but when they needed it, they countered.” That’s a change from OU’s last three teams. They’re not wilting under pressure or in big moments, but pushing through. Saturday in front of a rare crowd at the Lloyd Noble Center (8,696) was one of those moments. “It was a lot different, more intense,” Hield said. “It was a great experience.” “It felt amazing,” M’Baye said. “A great feeling, especially to win.” Guerin Emig 918-581-8355

“Our guys responded to it well,” Kruger said. “We weren’t distracted by it.” Triple threat: OU went 8-of-13 from 3-point range Saturday for a season-high 61.5 percent. Buddy Hield went 3-of-5. Je’lon Hornbeak was 2-of-2. Amath M’Baye made his only shot from distance, a swish from the corner that lifted the Sooners’ lead to 66-57 with 5:25 remaining. Several of OU’s triples, in fact, came at crucial times. Pledger’s 3 over Nash pushed OU ahead 55-50 with 9:22 left. Hield’s 3 made it 61-54 a few possessions later. The Sooners used the 3 to assert early control as well. Hield and Je’lon Hornbeak struck from deep as OU shot to a 13-5 lead before OSU could gather itself. Facts and figures: Osby scored a team-high 17 points, but his free-throw streak ended at 36 with a second-half miss. He was just one away from tying Nate Carter’s OU record … Hield’s three 3-pointers represented a career high, while M’Baye’s 3 was the first of his OU career … The Sooners are 2-0 in the Big 12 for the first time since 2009, Blake Griffin’s National Player of the Year season. That team started 11-0. — GUERIN EMIG, World Sports Writer

niors and three juniors who labored for three straight losing teams look hungry for success. “This group has potential,” Kruger said. “I mean, they’ve got room to grow. They do a lot of good things and have improved in a lot of areas, which is exciting.” Read John E. Hoover’s blog

Tulsa’s running game is appealing to Parker BY BILL HAISTEN

World Sports Writer

On Sept. 2 — the day after the University of Tulsa opened the 2012 football season with a loss at Iowa State — Jonathan Parker announced his commitment to the Golden Hurricane. A running back from Christian Brothers College High School in St. Louis, Parker chose TU over Northern Illinois (a program that was destined for an Orange Bowl appearance). “I liked Northern Illinois,” Parker explained in September, “but I loved Tulsa.” On Dec. 31, while watching the TU-Iowa State Liberty Bowl rematch, the 5-foot-10, 175-pound Parker was reminded of one of the reasons why he feels so secure with his TU decision — the Golden Hurricane’s commitment to its ground game. During a third-quarter possession that began at the TU 24, the Hurricane offensive line demoralized the Iowa State defense. Trey

TU RECRUITING News of the week Undecided recruits: With 18 apparently

solid commitments, TU’s 2013 class appears to be mostly finalized. Among undecided prospects who command attention are Kolton Shindelar, a phenomenally athletic tight end from Liberty, Mo.; and Gary Moore, who played tight end for Clarksville (Texas) High School but may be a big wide receiver at the college level. A veteran of only 11 games of varsity football, the 6-foot-5, 240-pound Shindelar was a tight end and a defensive end in high school. He says he prefers to play the tight end position. Shindelar told that he received a scholarship offer from Missouri on Friday.


beat Rice 64-51. The Owls were scoreless during the final 4:49. During the same span, Harrison had a steal and a dunk to give TU a 55-51 lead. He followed with a perfectly lofted entry pass to forward Kauri Black, who converted on a layup. Harrison then swished four free throws. “That was a great four minutes,” Harrison said. During the final 5:47, Tulsa outscored the Owls 17-2. Pat Swilling Jr. had 12 points as the Hurricane recorded its 13th consecutive victory over Rice. “Player of the game,” Hurricane coach Danny Manning said of Harrison. “Shaq is a very talented basketball player. We put him on (Tamir Jackson) in the second half, and Jackson really hurt us in the first half. Shaq does a very good job on him defensively. Just a great game by him. He is becoming a premier defender for us.” Now 10-7 overall and 2-1 in C-USA, the Hurricane had distinctly different success rates on free throws. During the first half, TU was 4-of-12. During the second half, TU made 20-of-23. Jackson scored 12 firsthalf points for Rice. Working against Harrison’s defense

Watts ran for 4, 3 and 48 yards. The methodical drive continued with four more 4-yard gains — two by Alex Singleton, one by Watts and one by quarterback Cody Green. Singleton’s 1-yard Parker dive resulted in the touchdown that gave Tulsa a 28-17 lead, and the Hurricane ultimately prevailed 31-17. By game’s end, TU had 60 rushing attempts for 317 yards. With a 245.7-yard average, the Hurricane finished ninth nationally in rushing offense. “Oh, yeah — I saw what Tulsa did with their run game,” Parker said. “I was loving the way they use their running backs.” Recruited by Hurricane specialteams coordinator Scott Downing and running backs coach Dan Bitson, Parker led his Christian Brothers team to an undefeated regular season and a final record of 11-1. Scout reported this about Shindelar’s status: “Right now, (Missouri’s) biggest obstacle to landing Kolton Shindelar looks to be Tulsa.” Shindelar is scheduled to visit the TU campus on Friday and follow with a trip to Missouri on Jan. 25. “Tulsa has recruiting me the longest and (was) first to offer me,” Shindelar told Scout. “I have a relationship with the coaches and I am looking forward to my visit there. I am still getting to develop that same relationship with the Missouri coaches.” At his size, Shindelar is a 200-meter sprinter and a hurdler for the Liberty track team. He has long-jumped nearly 23 feet. At 6-5 and 215 pounds, Moore reportedly has received offers from Tulsa, TCU, Texas-San Antonio, North Texas, Arkansas State, Missouri and Texas

During a regular-season win over rival De Smet Jesuit, Parker carried 15 times for 118 yards and two touchdowns. He also scored TDs on a 72-yard pass play and a 90-yard kickoff return. Tech. He is expected to take three official visits — to Tulsa, TCU and Missouri. Moore also is a prominent performer for the Clarksville basketball team that last season captured the Class A Division I title. Clarksville is located in northeast Texas. TU already has an accomplished wide receiver — Keyarris Garrett — who starred at a small school in that area. Garrett was a member of three state championship teams at Daingerfield High School.

Signing day countdown The University of Tulsa commitment list currently includes 18 prospects. It is believed that TU could sign as many as 23 prospects. Verbal commitments are non-binding. High school recruits may sign national letters of intent on Feb. 6.

The rankings Rivals: 64th. Scout: 73rd.

Position watch: Safety Dexter McCoil, an all-conference selection and the TU program’s career leader in interceptions, concluded his career in the Liberty Bowl. Marco Nelson will be a senior in 2013. The Golden Hurricane needs depth at safety, and there is one safety — Joe Bean of Class A Hooker High School — on TU’s commitment list. The 6-foot-1, 195-pound Bean has legitimate 4.4 speed and is a star for the Hooker track team. Last year, he ran one of the legs of Hooker’s state championship 4-by-400 relay team.

It was like, ‘OK, TU is doing it big.’ In most of Oklahoma, TU doesn’t get enough recognition. “The TU campus is like its own little town in a huge city, and the football facilities to me are amazing. I want to surround myself with coaches who can drive me and make me a better player, and the TU coaches are unbelievable. I felt no negativity from any of the TU players. It just felt right. Everything felt right.” — BILL HAISTEN, World Sports Writer

most of the game. We felt like we outplayed Tulsa in the first half and in a good portion of the second half. “The pressure of the game — the pressure of holding that lead — is something we are going to have to work at.” Hurricane freshman guard James Woodard had a tough evening, scoring only two points while missing on all four of his 3-point shots and committing six turnovers. Scottie Haralson got only three field goal attempts, but he was efficient on free throws (7-of-8) and collected five rebounds. Haralson, Harrison and freshman forward Zeldric King were a combined 19-of23 at the foul line. Black was 2-of-8 on free throws. Otherwise, the 6-7 senior played well with 10 points and six

rebounds. Rice blitzed TU with a first-half barrage of 3-pointers. Treys by Seth Gearhart, Julian DeBose and Jackson highlighted a 14-0 Rice run. The Owls were good on eight of their first 10 tries from 3-point range. “A lot of that had to do with us playing poor defense,” Black said. “... We let them get their confidence up by hitting uncontested shots.” During the second half, Rice was only 3-of-11 on 3-pointers and added only three 2-point field goals. “Teams are going to make runs,” Black said, “but eventually they’re going to start missing shots when you’ve got a hand in their face.” Bill Haisten 918-581-8397

Injury update: After missing two games because of a right-knee injury, University of Tulsa redshirt freshman Brandon Swannegan played two minutes during Saturday’s 64-51 victory over Rice. Two other Hurricane forwards — freshman D’Andre Wright and sophomore Rashad Smith — did not play because of stress-type, lower-leg injuries. Wright now has missed five games. Smith has missed 13 games and may not play again this season. On Saturday, Wright was in uniform and did not wear a brace on his injured left leg. “It means the rehab is coming along,” Hurricane coach Danny Manning said of Wright’s status. “He’s progressing, yes. He still hasn’t practiced. “As long as he does what he’s supposed to on the rehab side — and when the doctors give him the OK — we’ll start getting him back in the mix.” Against Rice, the 6-7 Swannegan made his only shot and grabbed one rebound. Manning said Swannegan may get more playing time on Wednesday, when TU hosts UTEP. “I just wanted to see how he would respond (in the Rice game),” Manning said. “He was good while he was out there. I just wanted to ease him back in slowly. We’ll have to see what the doctors say. He’s rounding back into shape. “We definitely need him back

N.C. State hands No. 1 Blue Devils first loss ASSOCIATED PRESS C.J. Leslie scored 25 points to help No. 20 North Carolina State beat No. 1 Duke 8476 on Saturday in Raleigh, N.C. Richard Howell added 16 points and 18 rebounds in a relentless performance for the Wolfpack (14-2, 3-0 Atlantic Coast Conference) in a matchup of the teams predicted to finish 1-2 in the league. N.C. State was picked for the first time in nearly four decades to win the league, though two early losses drained some buzz. No longer. Now N.C. State is back on everyone’s radar, while the Blue Devils (15-1, 2-1) are no longer unbeaten. No. 3 Louisville 64, South Florida 38: Peyton Siva scored 17 points and Louisville held South Florida to a season-low 27 percent shooting for an easy victory. Center Gorgui Dieng added 12 points and 16 rebounds while forward Chane Behanan had 12 rebounds and seven points for the Cardinals (15-1, 3-0 Big East), who won their

MEN’S TOP 25 ROUNDUP 10th in a row. Behanan played just five days after injuring his left ankle in practice and missing Wednesday’s victory against Seton Hall. No. 4 Arizona 80, Oregon St. 70: Solomon Hill had 16 points, including five 3-pointers, to help the No. 4 Wildcats bounce back from their first loss of the season with a victory over Oregon State. The Wildcats (15-1, 3-1 Pac12) were coming off a 70-66 defeat Thursday night just down the road against the Oregon Ducks. The Beavers (10-6, 0-3), who trailed by as many as 17 points in the second half, didn’t give the Wildcats much trouble. No. 5 Indiana 88, No. 8 Minnesota 81: Victor Oladipo had 20 points and six rebounds and Jordan Hulls knocked down four 3-pointers, helping Indiana hold off Minnesota’s late charge. The Hoosiers (15-1, 3-0 Big Ten) have won six straight

overall and 18 in a row at Assembly Hall. Minnesota (15-2, 3-1) was led by Andre Hollins with 25 points but had its 11-game winning streak snapped despite rallying from 23 points down at halftime to within 3 with 19.5 seconds left. Minnesota rallied with a 19-7 run in the final four minutes, getting as close as 84-81 but never had a chance to tie the score. No. 7 Syracuse 72, Villanova 61: C.J. Fair had 22 points, Trevor Cooney hit a pair of 3-pointers to punctuate a late surge and Syracuse beat Villanova. Syracuse (16-1, 4-0 Big East) has won 34 straight home games, the longest active streak in the nation in Division I. Villanova (11-5, 2-1) had its seven-game winning streak snapped. Mississippi 64, No. 10 Missouri 49: Murphy Holloway scored 22 points, Jarvis Summers added 12 and Mississippi cruised to a victory over No. 10 Missouri. Ole Miss (13-2, 2-0 Southeastern Conference) led the entire game, jumping out to

an early 9-0 lead thanks to timely shooting and superior defense. Holloway was nearly unstoppable in the paint, making 8 of 12 shots from the field and 6 of 10 free throws. Jabari Brown led Missouri (12-3, 1-1) with 13 points. No. 11 Florida 74, LSU 52: Kenny Boynton scored 20 points and Florida used a 31-6 run across the halves to rout LSU. Patric Young had 14 points for the Gators (12-2, 2-0 SEC). Boynton’s perimeter shooting and Young’s interior play were instrumental in Florida controlling the offensive end. The Tigers (9-4, 0-2) stuck around well into the first half before Florida broke a 19-all tie with a 10-1 run to end the half. Wisconsin 74, No. 12 Illinois 51: Jared Berggren scored 15 points and grabbed a season-high 12 rebounds, and Traevon Jackson added a career-best 14 points to lead Wisconsin over Illinois. The Badgers (12-4, 3-0 Big Ten) scored the game’s first 14 points and led by 20 at halftime on the way to their sixth straight win.

It was a stunning performance from a team that scored just 47 in the previous game against Nebraska, but a supposedly slow and methodical team locked into a higher gear and ended the suspense almost as soon as the game began. No. 14 Butler 79, Dayton 73: Roosevelt Jones scored 16 points and Butler extended its best start in four years beating Dayton for its 11th straight victory despite losing its top scorer to injury. The Bulldogs (14-2, 2-0 Atlantic 10) lost guard Rotnei Clarke, who hit the padded backboard support hard after an intentional foul at 8:13 at the first half and was taken off the court on a stretcher. He was moving his legs and gave a thumbs-up sign as he left the court. The Bulldogs’ depth pulled them through against Dayton (10-6, 0-2), which has lost four of its last six and fell to 7-3 on its home court. The Bulldogs are off to their best start since they won 19 of their first 20 games during the 2008-09 season.

out on the court because he’s so active in blocking shots and altering shots.” Rice’s hot start: On Saturday, Rice stunned the Hurricane by converting on eight of its first 10 shots from 3-point range. Manning was reminded of an August exhibition, when TU was defeated by an A-Game Hoops team in Toronto. In that game — a 102-92 Hurricane loss — the A-Game Hoops squad finished with 22 3-point baskets. While watching red-hot Rice during Saturday’s opening half, “I was thinking, ‘I hope this isn’t another A-Game Hoops night,’ ” Manning said. “But we did a better job of contesting shots (during the second half).” After Rice staggered TU with a 14-0 run, Pat Swilling Jr. answered for the Hurricane by connecting on a pair of NBArange 3-pointers.

No changes: The news of Oklahoma State’s coaching change – removing Bill Young as defensive coordinator and replacing him with Glenn Spencer – hasn’t resulted in any commitment changes for the Cowboys. In addition to overseeing the defense, Young coached the defensive line. Defensive ends Naim Mustafaa and Sam Wren enrolled at semester, and tackles Vincent Taylor and Ben Hughes remain committed to OSU. Mustafaa’s enrollment was announced Monday. The Georgia native comes from a family of athletes, including his father, Najee, who played seven seasons in the NFL and was a teammate of Spencer’s at Georgia Tech. “Naim is a big-time defensive end who can rush the passer and is very athletic,” Spencer said in a news release. “He has a very high motor and is a competitor. He uses his hands very well. He is a quiet person by nature, but he turns it up when he’s on the field.” Familiar name: Class of 2014 quarterback Bear Fenimore is among those invited to OSU’s upcoming Junior Day. A 6-foot-1, 224-pound prospect from Austin (Texas) Westwood, Fenimore doesn’t have a major-college offer but is drawing interest from Alabama, LSU, Texas A&M and others, according to Fenimore, who attended last season’s win against TCU in Stillwater, was asked on Twitter last week whether he is related to former Cowboy legend

Bob Fenimore, the program’s first AllAmerican. “For the Oklahoma State fans, research has confirmed that I am related to Bob Fenimore,” he responded. “We are distant cousins.”

Signing day countdown OSU has received verbal commitments from 20 players, and among those are two junior-college transfers who have signed. Additionally, Mustafaa has enrolled. The remaining commitments are non-binding. Recruits can sign a letter of intent starting Feb. 6.

Position watch: Running back With Joseph Randle announcing he will declare early for the NFL Draft, OSU could be on the prowl for another running back for the Class of 2013. No. 2 back Jeremy Smith will be a senior next year, and the Cowboys also have Desmond Roland, a junior-to-be, and Caleb Muncrief, a sophomore, on the roster. The only running back who has pledged to OSU for 2013 is Corion Webster, a 5-11, 190-pound prospect from Atlanta, Texas. After Randle’s announcement, coaches went after Houston Cypress Ridge tailback Rennie Childs, extending a scholarship offer Thursday, according to — KELLY HINES, World Sports Writer

Bloomington rallies for victory over Oilers BY KEVIN HENRY

World Correspondent

One night after snapping a 12-game road losing skid, the Tulsa Oilers returned to the BOK Center hoping to end a season-long streak of futility against the Bloomington Blaze. The visitors, however, used a flurry of goals to put an end to Tulsa’s momentum. Bloomington scored three goals in the second period, including two in a 28-second span, as the Blaze remained unbeaten against Tulsa on the season with a 4-2 decision in Central Hockey League action on Saturday night before a crowd of 5,316. Bloomington (19-15-1) is now 4-0-1 versus the Oilers this season and sent Tulsa (10-23-3) to 2-7-1 over its last

10 outings. After a scoreless first period, Bloomington’s Kyle Bochek got his team on the scoreboard with a rebound shot that he sent into the goal about the same time he crashed into the net. After reviewing the play, the officials let it stand and the Blaze held a 1-0 lead with 13:27 left in the period. A little less than nine minutes later, Bloomington would score twice in 28 seconds to take control of the contest. The Blaze increased the lead to 2-0 as Nicklas Lindberg blasted a shot into the upper left corner of the net with 4:58 left in the period, then Tyler Gron notched his 21st goal of the season with a breakaway goal to quickly push the Blaze ad-

Bloomington would then finvantage to 3-0. “We played great for 54 ish off the game with an openminutes tonight, but those goal net with 14 seconds left. four or five minutes made the difference,” said Tulsa head BLOOMINGTON 4, TULSA 2 coach Bruce Ramsay. “It’s Bloomington 0 3 1 — 4 frustrating because we really Tulsa 0 1 1 — 2 First period: No scoring. Penalties: Tulsa, battled hard all game.” Fleck (Slashing), 8:38.

Welcome: Oklahoma rolled out the welcome mat for visitors to campus over the weekend, and the Sooners got a verbal commitment out of it. Charles Walker, a 6-foot-4, 280-pounder from South Garland (Texas) High School, made his pledge to the Sooners public on Twitter on Saturday night. Walker hadn’t been hit hard by schools (North Texas, Houston and New Mexico are on his list), and his addition will help the Sooners to fill defensive tackle spots. OU also needs to fill up with linebackers and another offensive tackle. Evaluating can be tough: Often times, Oklahoma’s first contact with a potential recruit is during one of its camps. In years past, it could be a two- or

three-day visit. These days, it mainly is a one-day stop. “Yeah, it’s just hard to get kids, as you know, for two and three days now,” OU coach Bob Stoops said. “They’ve gotta move, they’ve gotta get to all these camps and they only have time for one. Or finances. It’s just really hard to get two, three days with a kid now.” The OU coach said it can be hard to get a great evaluation on prospects. “We spend a lot of time in schools trying to evaluate and gather information,” Stoops said. “What’s he really like? It’s just tough to have the time to make a great evaluation. We do like them to come in the summer to camps as much as possible. To me, in particular, too when they’re freshmen and sophomores. “It’s where you can really get a jump

if you like some sophomores and you can start communicating with them and getting them to games.” Getting along: Stoops said he believes it’s important for his coaching staff to relate well to recruits. His staff also understands that they are dealing with a number of personalities when looking at prospective players. “All guys are different, but (if) a guy doesn’t want to relate to you, he’s probably not going to,” Stoops said. “Usually, we feel we’re pretty good guys and can relate to people pretty well.”

the event earlier last week. The reason why? Bob Stoops said during a media availability that it would stretch the coaching staff thin. It already is a busy recruiting weekend with Class of 2013 players. Stoops added that there are plenty of weekends in the future where juniors could be brought to campus.

Signing day countdown

The Sooners lost a key commitment when linebacker Jordan Mastrogiovanni changed his pledge from the Sooners to Texas A&M just 72 hours after the Ag-

gies dominated OU in the Cotton Bowl. Mastrogiovanni, a 6-foot-3, 225-pound linebacker, was considered the Sooners’ top linebacker recruit. Oklahoma’s top linebacker recruit is now Jordan Evans, a 6-3, 205-pounder from Norman North. Booker T. Washington commit Dominique Alexander (6-0, 190) doesn’t have linebacker size, but could he be developed into one? The spot will be handled by senior Corey Nelson, junior Aaron Franklin and freshman Frank Shannon next season. But depth will need to be recruited at this position, especially with the early departure of Tom Wort. This position wasn’t a huge point of emphasis. But after Mastrogiovanni’s loss, it could be considered one now. — ERIC BAILEY, World Sports Writer

the final round. They each have a chance to become the first rookies to win in their PGA Tour debut since Garrett Willis in the 2001 Tucson Open. The rookies have ruled along the shores of Oahu, and if not for Clark, it would have been even more pronounced. Clark made a birdie on the

last hole that put him into the final group. Otherwise, that spot would have been occupied by Scott Gardiner of Australia, who had a 64 and was four shots behind. Former Oklahoma State standout Charles Howell III, twice a runner-up at the Sony Open, had a 67 and also was four behind. Seven players were within five shots of the lead, which included Monday qualifier Danny Lee and Pat Perez, whose goal to have a more positive attitude was severely tested on the final hole when he missed a 40-inch birdie putt. Perez still had a 67 and was at 12-under 198. Henley and Langley shared low amateur honors at Pebble Beach in the 2010 U.S. Open, and then became fast friends by flying together to Northern Ireland for the Palmer Cup. They were thrilled to be playing together for their rookie debut in the opening two rounds. Neither had any idea they would still be together going into the final round. Nobody has been able to catch them. Langley was two shots behind until a two-putt birdie on the ninth and a short

birdie putt on the 10th to tie for the lead. He pulled ahead with a 12-foot birdie putt on the 13th, and after a threeputt bogey, regained the lead with a 15-foot birdie putt on the 15th. Those expecting to see the rookies get stage fright in the final group on the weekend quickly learned that these aren’t ordinary rookies — at least not on Saturday. Both played with remarkable poise and kept this Sony Open a two-man show. Except for John Daly, of course, who always manages to keep it interesting. The former Arkansas standout pulled his tee shot into the hill on the sixth hole, hit a rock and hurt his shoulder. He made triple bogey, took four shots from 20 feet on the next hole for double bogey, made another triple bogey on the eighth and then holed a 50-foot birdie for a 45 on the front nine. That gave him a 79. A far more subtle meltdown belonged to Chris Kirk. He was two shots out of the lead when he hit a tee shot into the canal, his next shot out of bounds and made a 20-foot putt to escape with a triple bogey.

Serena Williams set for another big year Los Angeles Times (MCT)

Can Serena Williams win a calendar-year Grand Slam? Where’s Rafael Nadal, and when will he be back? As the 2013 tennis season begins in earnest Sunday (Monday in Melbourne) at the Australian Open, we know that Nadal is not back. He has withdrawn from the first major of the year, as he did from the Olympics and the U.S. Open last year, saying his knee tendinitis has now been trumped by a stomach virus. Williams, though, seems in the best shape of her career and is still on the high of winning Wimbledon, the Olympics and the U.S. Open.

Rookies roll again in Hawaii HONOLULU — PGA Tour rookies Russell Henley and Scott Langley get to play one more round together at the Sony Open, this time with a lot more on the line. Henley two-putted from 30 feet for birdie on the last hole Saturday for a 3-under 67, allowing him to catch up to Langley, who had to settle for a par and a 65. They broke the tournament scorrecord through PGA ing 54 holes at 17-under 193. Better yet, they had a threeshot lead over Tim Clark. At stake on Sunday is a trophy, the customary lei draped around the neck and an invitation to the Masters. If the third round was any indication, Clark and everyone will have to chase them down. The 23-year-old rookies never flinched on a warm afternoon with only a mild breeze on a Waialae Country Club that was ripe for low scores. Langley made seven birdies to offset a pair of bogeys. Henley has been more steady, and he carries a streak of 43 holes without a bogey into

Verbal commitments (16)


Player Jed Barnett Quincy Russell

AUSTRALIAN OPEN She is not the defending champion in Melbourne. That honor belongs to topseeded Victoria Azarenka, but it’s hard for anybody to pick against Williams. Justin Gimelstob, who will do commentary for the Tennis Channel, says, “It seems like Serena is becoming much more aware of history, and with that is becoming more focused, fit and spends time and energy with her tennis now.” Lindsay Davenport, a partner with Gimelstob on the Tennis Channel, said it will be difficult for the 31-yearold Williams to sweep the four major events this year. “But it’s just as difficult to pick against her if she stays healthy,” Davenport said of the third-seeded player. Chris Evert, who will be working for ESPN2, said of Williams and the possibil-

ity of a slam: “She’s got the motivation, no doubt about it. If her health stays good, she’s unbeatable. But in this day and age, and we’ve seen it with Nadal, it’s the health. There are no easy matches. Do I think it will happen? I have my doubts because she’s human. But at the moment, she’s a level or two above the opposition.” On the men’s side, topseeded and two-time defending champion Novak Djokovic is the favorite. Second-seeded Roger Federer, who is also 31, can suffer in the heat, which has been over 110 degrees the last week. Andy Murray, seeded third, goes to Melbourne now with the belief he can win big tournaments. “What I did at the end of last year, it meant a lot to my confidence,” said Murray, who won the Olympics and his first Grand Slam tourna-

ment, the U.S. Open. Darren Cahill, the Australian commentator for ESPN2, predicts that Murray will win another major this year, that Nadal will be focused for the French Open and, “Never count Federer out. But you can never bet against Djokovic on a hard surface, so I like his chances here. “But here in 2013, we might start seeing some of the future. Milos Raonic, Bernard Tomic, Ryan Harrison, among others. Young guys will start coming through.” John Isner, who would have been the highest-seeded American man, withdrew from the tournament with a bone bruise in his right knee, leaving 22nd-seeded Sam Querrey as the highestranked American man. The tournament will be televised on ESPN2 and the Tennis Channel beginning Monday.

Armstrong will answer ‘honestly’ during Oprah talk BY JIM VERTUNO Associated Press

AUSTIN, Texas — Lance Armstrong said he will answer questions “directly, honestly and candidly” during an interview with Oprah Winfrey next week. He will also apologize and make a limited confession to using performance-enhancing drugs, according to a person with knowledge of the situation. Armstrong has spent more than a decade denying that he doped to win the Tour de France seven times. Without saying whether he would confess or apologize during the taping, Armstrong told The Associated Press in a text message early Saturday, “I told her (Winfrey) to go wherever she wants and I’ll answer the questions directly, honestly and candidly. That’s all I can say.” A confession would be a stunning reversal for Armstrong after years of public statements, interviews and court battles from Austin to Europe in which he denied doping and zealously protected his reputation. Armstrong was stripped of his titles and banned from the sport for life last year after the U.S. Anti-Doping agency issued a detailed report accusing him of leading a sophisticated and brazen drug program on his U.S. Postal Service teams that included steroids, blood boosters and a range of performance-enhancing drugs. Armstrong’s interview with Winfrey is not expected to go into great detail about specific allegations levied in the more than 1,000-page USADA report. But Armstrong will make a general confession and apologize, according to the person, who requested anonymity because there was no authorization to speak publicly. Armstrong hasn’t responded to the USADA report or being stripped of his Tour de France titles. But shortly afterward, he tweeted a picture of himself on a couch at home with all seven of the

yellow leader’s jerseys on display in a room at his home in Austin. He also agreed to be interviewed there, in what the Oprah Winfrey Network announced would be a “noholds barred” session. That’s scheduled to be taped Monday and broadcast Thursday night. “His reputation is in crisis,” said crisis management expert Mike Paul, president of New York-based, MGP & Associates PR. “Most people don’t trust what comes out of his mouth. He has to be truly repentant and humble.” He also has to be careful. Armstrong is facing legal challenges on several fronts, including a federal whistleblower lawsuit brought by former teammate Floyd Landis, who himself was stripped of the 2006 Tour de France title, accusing him of defrauding the U.S. Postal Service. The U.S. Justice Department has yet to announce whether it will join the case. The London-based Sunday Times is also suing Armstrong to recover about $500,000 it paid him to settle a libel lawsuit, and Dallas-based SCA Promotions has threatened to bring yet another lawsuit against Armstrong to recover more than $7.5 million an arbitration panel awarded him as a bonus for winning the Tour de France. The only lawsuit potentially impacted by a confession might be the Sunday Times case. Potential perjury charges stemming from his sworn testimony in the 2005 arbitration fight would not apply because of the statute of limitations. Armstrong was not deposed during a federal investigation that was closed last year without charges being brought. However, he lost most of his personal endorsements — worth tens of millions of dollars — after USADA issued its report and he left the board of the Livestrong cancerfighting charity he founded in 1997. He is still said to be worth an estimated $100 million.

with Jack Morris If you have noticed coyotes along some of the highways lately — both alive and killed by traffic — you know that the wild canines are becoming more active with their mating season fast approaching. Predator hunting is quickly growing in popularity, and those who try it will understand why. It requires stealth and careful tactics. Hunters need to keep track of the wind direction to make the right approach. Coyotes might come on a dead run to a call and be in your lap before you know it, which is exciting, but don’t mistake stories of willing predators for some idea they are not wary. They have excellent eyesight and a keen sense of smell. Novice predator hunters might want to start with electronic calls, which are legal for use in Oklahoma. A wide variety of models are available. Mouth calls come in a variety of options, many of which can produce a variety of sounds. They are no harder to master than any other sort of game call for those who want to practice and learn. Start simply. I have at times called in coyotes by doing nothing more than making a squeaking kiss sound with my mouth on my hand. When hunting coyotes, I like to back up to a creek or some other barrier, if possible, that can prevent a coyote from circling around behind me. Ridges and hilltops can offer a good overview to see a lot of country, but it’s best to set up just below the rise so you don’t silhouette yourself against the horizon. When preparing to hunt an area consider several spots and approaches given the wind direction. Call for 10 to 15 minutes in an area and, if it feels right, give a careful look around and move to the next spot. Most predator hunters don’t give too much time to one spot. Knowing when to move is just a matter of experience, and maybe luck. Just about anyone who has hunted predators can tell you they were busted by a wily dog just as they decided to get up and move. Jack Morris is a professional guide and host of Outdoor Trails at 6 p.m. Thursdays on KTBZ am1430. Contact him at 918-691-3840, jackswildlife@cox. net or see

Going vertical

Bass-catching technique works in Missouri


HE BOTTOM of a lake in January, 50 feet down, even if the water is clear as that of Table Rock Lake, seems a dark, impossible, foreboding place. To longtime Missouri angler and guide Tim Sainato it just happens to be where the bass spend their winters at his home lake. “We could go and fish the rocks shallower, closer to shore and I’m sure we could find some fish, but this is the place to catch them,” he said last Sunday as we trolled into a brisk wind on that 40-degree morning. “This is really my favorite way to fish.” Most anglers don’t get into this fishing mode simply because they lack the confidence that it will work, Kelly Sainato said. “I tell Bostian people it’s just about two boat lengths, that’s Outdoors all, and when they can kelly.bostian visualize that it helps. They think, ‘OK, it’s 918-581-8357 not that far.’ ” Grand Lake guide TULSAWORLD.COM Ivan Martin invited Additional me to join him and his friend on Table Rock instruction for a look at Sainand video ato’s vertical fishing Learn more about technique for winter this fishing techbass. The Branson, nique and watch Mo., area is just about some fishing aca two-hour drive from tion in a video at Grove, so Martin has enjoyed a few day trips to the lake to fish with outdoors Sainato this winter. Mixed bags of spotted, black and smallmouth bass await those who figure out how to probe the depths of Table Rock for schooled bass. “It’s not something that would work on Grand,” Martin said. “It’s the wrong kind of lake.” That’s not to say largemouth bass aren’t caught with vertical fishing techniques on Grand Lake in winter, especially around brush piles. But finding them 50 feet down on a relatively flat substrate? No. Not hardly. The Grand Lake guide said he believes Table Rock’s relatively clear water is what allows the fish to move deep for the right water temperatures and oxygen levels. Sainato’s fishing technique is part presentation, part hunting, part video game. He cruises into coves and follows the low valleys and old creek channels closely watching the screen of his Lowrance LCX-112c sonar. It’s an older model, but it suits his needs. He can read it and describe what’s happening as if he’s looking right at the fish. “I’ll see if I can get one to raise his head,” Sainato said, looking at a sonar

screen that appeared empty, save the thick smooth line that represented the bottom of the lake. I asked if he knew what the substrate was like, if it was muddy or rock. “It’s just like that up there,” he said, pointing to the wide beach of golf-ball to baseball-sized rock exposed by the currently low lake level. “You don’t always see them,” he said of the fish. “They hug the bottom. I mean they are right down there — flat.” On Sunday, Sainto used a drop-shot finesse rig with a 4-inch purple worm to hook several spotted bass for the camera. Sometimes he uses a half-ounce Rapala Jigging Rap, sometimes a Blakemore Road Runner spinner jig. He dropped the rig, watching it onscreen as it fell, and he searched for bass. With the finesse rig he might entice the bass by lightly jiggling the rod tip to give the worm a little extra action. Sometimes he raises it a few feet and lets it drop. “That worm is always moving anyway,” he said. “You can’t hold it still if you try.” Often the action begins with just one streak on the screen, but stirring one fish may bring an entire school to life. “A lot

BIRD WATCH Most warblers spend the winter well south of Oklahoma, but not pine warblers. They can be seen yearround, mostly in the southeastern part of the state, but occasionally at bird feeders during winter as far north as the Tulsa area. This unusual cold-hardiness for a warbler with comes in part from their abilDan Reinking ity to eat pine seeds and bird feeder offerings when insects are not available.

of times you get into them and it fills up with streaks everywhere,” he said. “That’s the thing. You have to look for them, but once you find them you’re usually into a bunch of them.” He has had clients who have simply enjoyed watching the screen to see what the fish look like on the sonar and how it all comes together. “You’ll see them, even if they’re just moving away from it,” he said. “Worming up” is the term he uses for bass that appear on the sonar as dark-blue streaks and lines above the substrate. Sainato narrated the action below as he watched his bait Sunday. “Here we go,” he said. “Come on up, come on, there you go, here he is, yep!” He set the hook and reeled in a beefy 16-inch spotted bass. “It’s a great time of year, and this really is one of my favorite ways to catch bass,” he said. It’s his favorite way and apparently an effective way. Contact Sainato at 417-335-0037 or see

Fort Gibson girls, boys win BY JOHN D. FERGUSON World Correspondent

Ricky Stenhouse Jr. donated an autographed uniform in honor of Donnie Ray Crawford for a silent auction at this year’s Chili Bowl.  CORY YOUNG/Tulsa World


The Chili Bowl ‘A’ Main did not end in time to be included in Sunday’s edition. See Monday’s edition for details and results of the feature.

Other activities included the sale of T-shirts by the Hard Eight racing team for which Donnie Ray was driving at the time of his death. Also, a bean bag tournament was held, with the proceeds given to the foundation. Saturday night’s A feature ran 55 laps instead of 50 in honor of Donnie Ray. Fiftyfive was his car number. Donnie Ray will not be forgotten. Everyone that met Donnie Ray feels much like Lewis. “I feel so fortunate to be as close to him as I was,” Lewis said. This is their way of giving back.

father, Donald Ray “Donnie” Crawford II. Prosecutors decided after several months not to file charges against Crawford II, said Jack Thorp, Wagoner County’s first assistant district attorney. “Basically, it was clear that it was justified,” Thorp said. “Everything seemed to check out and the stories that were given to law enforcement by the witnesses and individuals at the scene appeared to be corroborated by the physical evidence.” The case, however, was unusual, and “definitely warranted a much longer investigation than would normally occur,” he added. Much has occurred to remember Donnie Ray since that day. The family set up the Donnie Ray Crawford Scholarship Fund and a memorial race was held at Port City Raceway last August that reportedly raised $47,000 through donations, an auction and T-shirt sales. Now a year later, Chili Bowl fans and participants have not forgotten the thirdgeneration driver. The Donnie Ray Crawford Foundation had a booth at the Chili Bowl where a silent auction was held and T-shirts were sold, with the proceeds going to the DRC fund. Long-time family friend Stuart Lewis spent the week overseeing the booth’s operation and recalls his association with Donnie Ray, dad Donnie and grandfather Ray. “I was a fan of Ray’s, raced against Donnie and worked on his cars when he started racing super modifieds in ’84,” recalled Lewis. The booth has been wellreceived, and Lewis has met many people who have happy stories to tell of their conversations with Donnie Ray. “This has been very wellreceived,” Lewis said of the auction. “It is amazing the people he touched in such a short time. “We had one gentleman come up that had met him on that Friday evening and talked with him for less than 30 minutes, and he came back this year just to get memorabilia.” One of the most interesting items in the booth is a uniform that NASCAR Nationwide champion Ricky Stenhouse Jr. wore this past season. Stenhouse put a DRC patch on his uniform in honor of Crawford, and after his first victory early in the season, Stenhouse paid tribute in a televised post-race interview. Stenhouse donated the suit, and it was raffled off Saturday night. Also in the booth is a painted helmet donated by Harli White of Lindsay. White was pulled from a burning race car in 2008 by Crawford and she has been close to the family ever since. “It is a memorial helmet for Donnie Ray,” said White. “I designed it last February and had it painted. I wore it at the Donnie Ray Crawford memorial. I am going to give it to Jodie Crawford to keep.”

OOLOGAH — Brooke Palmer was Fort Gibson’s escape artist. Palmer found ways to get open and score 15 points to lead the unbeaten Tigers over Oologah 43-38 in the girls bracket championship of the Oologah Tournament Saturday night. A crowd of 500 watched Fort Gibson move to 12-0 and capture the second tournament title of the season. The Tigers won the Inola Tournament in December. Palmer was instrumental in both tournament finals and had a simple reason for it. “I just get open when nobody else gets open,” said Palmer, who was selected as the tournament’s MVP. “I try and relieve the pressure (on the team).” “The first half, I did pret-

Oologah rallied).” Oologah (10-3) fell behind by double-digits twice and forged comebacks that got close, but never retook the lead. Brinley Evans tallied a game-high 18 points and 13 rebounds for the Mustangs. Taylor McElhaney added nine points and nine rebounds. Evans and McElhaney also made the All-Tournament squad. Fort Gibson’s Savannah Gray, who had nine points and three assists, also made All-Tournament as did Catoosa’s Kayla Jones and Claremore Sequoyah’s Aubryana Matussak. Fort Gibson 60, Inola 50 (boys): The 10-2 Tigers made it a clean sweep in the boys championship game. Jordan Hill led Fort Gibson with 32 points and four assists.

Sunday, Januar y 13, 2013

THE STARS BY JACQUELINE BIGAR JAN. 13, 2013 Note: Bigar’s Stars is based on the degree of your sun at birth. The sign name is simply a label astrologers put on a set of degrees for convenience. For best results, readers should refer to the dates following each sign. A baby born today has a Sun in Capricorn and a Moon in Aquarius. Happy birthday for Sunday: This year you focus on your financial, emotional and creative assets. You might opt to pursue an innate talent and develop another moneymaking resource. Often, when you get upset, you will note a tendency to overspend. Be careful. If you are single, you do not need to impress a potential significant other. This person needs to know the real you in order for him or her to genuinely care about you. If you are attached, your significant other might wish you would spend less. Make an effort to make this request a possibility. AQUARIUS tends to distract you.

The Stars Show the Kind of Day You’ll Have: 5-Dynamic; 4-Positive; 3-Average; 2-So-so; 1-Difficult DARIES (March 21-April 19) ...............................................••••

A friendship could be in jeopardy. Stop pushing so hard when you and this person are on different sides of an issue. You need to know when to pull back and agree to disagree. Get together with like-minded friends right now. Tonight: Where the crowds are. This Week: Not until Wednesday do you feel up to snuff.

ETAURUS (April 20-May 20) ................................................•••

You can deal with a difficult associate for only so long. You need to be able to state when you have had enough. Sometimes, by pulling back and saying little, you can communicate your bottom line effectively. The question is: Does the other party want to hear it? Tonight: Make a call to an older friend. This Week: Zero in on a key project Monday and Tuesday.

FGEMINI (May 21-June 20) ...............................................••••

You can do only so much. Tend to an important matter involving a foreigner or a friend at a distance. A future trip could be in the works. Are you ready to finalize the dates? Go off to the movies and relax. Let your mind wander. Tonight: Your imagination takes the lead. This Week: All eyes are on you. You will make a decision, act on it and succeed.

GCANCER (June 21-July 22) ...................................................•••

Do not feel so pressured to respond instantly to the many people in your life. You could be exhausted by recent events and need some time off. A loved one might try to energize you, which could result in a spat. Tonight: Make peace. This Week: Start using your imagination in order to add to the quality of your life.

HLEO (July 23-Aug. 22) .......................................................••••

You could be overwhelmed by everything that is

5020 Apartments-Unfurnished

going on with a partner. You can’t fight this person’s battles, but you can give him or her some supportive feedback. How you handle a personal matter could change as a result of this interaction. Tonight: Out for dinner. This Week: Work with a partner directly Monday and Tuesday. IVIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) ...............................................••••

Let yourself concede to a key person, whether it’s when you’re making plans or working together to clear up a problem. Though you might not agree with this person’s ideas, you discover that there is validity here. Don’t push yourself so much. Tonight: A relaxing pastime. This Week: Others dominate. Let them. Now, what would you like to do?

Emphasize having a fun time with a loved one. Don’t be surprised if this person gets giddy with excitement. Consider the fact that you do not let go often. Let your inner child out. Tonight: Avoid competitions. This Week: Dive into work, and accomplish what you must quickly. You might not be as upbeat as you have been in the past. Honor your instincts, and follow through on what you deem important. A partner or roommate might not see eye to eye with you. Avoid an argument and respect your differences. Tonight: Stay close to home. This Week: Your creativity eases your path, even when you are overloaded with work. LSAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) ............................... •••••

Make a call. If someone is hostile, you might want to back off for now; on the other hand, if you know this person well, he or she might need to be pushed into making plans. Use caution. Tonight: Talk is cheap. This Week: You are not in full swing until Wednesday, when you become a force to be dealt with. Watch out, world!

ACAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)........................................••••

You might decide not to worry so much about a recent expenditure. You simply are in the mood to indulge someone, and that “someone” easily could be you! Remain positive, even if you find yourself in a situation where you have little control. Tonight: Order in or go out for dinner. This Week: Speak your mind, but be prepared to hear the counterargument. BAQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) ...................................... •••••

You beam under today’s lunar rays. You could be a little too energized for some people, which will make them feel uncomfortable. Slow down enough to tune in to others’ needs. Let your generous and caring spirit emerge. Tonight: Take care of last-minute errands. This Week: Curb spending until Wednesday. Explore your options then. CPISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) .............................................••••

You could be a bit overindulgent as of late. You might feel some anger brewing within. If you do, center yourself and process it. Just because you feel angry at someone, does not mean you must tell this person. It is possible that you have a fragility that he or she has triggered. Tonight: Get some extra R and R. This Week: Remain calm and centered.

Second Helping


‘No. 1 house rocker’





Home delivery

More women seek options for alternative birth plans


World Scene Writer

n Christmas Eve, Rachel Driver gave birth to a baby girl. Jocelyn Lily Driver, at a healthy 6 pounds 14 ounces and 20½ inches, was delivered into a tub in the living room of the Drivers’ apartment. Rachel and Jon Driver, whose own mothers had some home births, opted to have their first child at home. “We wanted to have as natural a birth as possible, without unnecessary interventions,” Rachel Driver said before the birth. The decision meant that there would be no option of pain medications, which she acknowledged was hard. Although at one point during her contractions Driver fleetingly understood why women ask for an epidural, the birth went much better than she expected. “I had psyched myself up for something horrible,” she said. “But it was really great.” Although Jon Driver can’t compare his daughter’s birth to a hospital birth because he’d never experienced it, he liked having the baby at home because he felt like he was able to offer more help to his wife. “I was able to rub her back, help her, get her water if she needed it, instead of being the middleman who had to ask permission for everything at a hospital,” he said. The couple agreed, given the choice, they’d do it at home again the next time. SEE BIRTH D9

It’s no Oscars, but we love it all the same BY MICHAEL SMITH World Scene Writer

The 70th Annual Golden Globe Awards will air at 7 p.m. Sunday on NBC, channel 2, cable channel 9. Hollywood Foreign Press Association/ Associated Press file

No self-respecting winner of an Academy Award would allow themselves to be introduced as a “Golden Globe-winning performer.” Well, that is, unless it’s at the Golden Globe Awards, one of the most popular annual Hollywood lovefests that allows the elite to hand out trophies and slap each other on the back over cocktails. The Globes have never served as much of an Oscar precursor, as the results don’t match up very well; maybe that’s because the

Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences has 6,000 members voting on the Oscars, and the Globes are given out after the Hollywood Foreign Press Association’s 80-plus members submit their favorites. But we don’t watch the Golden Globes for their importance, do we? (Who won big last year? Who can remember, without looking it up?) We watch to see motion pictures and television programs and performers celebrated at what looks like the party room that we always wished we could score a table at for one night.

We watch the Golden Globes To witness the unpredictable moments. Remember the year that Christine Lahti won her category for best actress in a TV drama, and when it was announced, she had to be fetched from the ladies’ room? Or how about in 1998, when Ving Rhames was named the best actor in a TV movie, and he called up fellow nominee Jack Lemmon to hand him the trophy? That’s something you will never see happen at the Oscars. There was the year that Jack Nicholson mooned the audience. Would that happen at

the Oscars? Maybe — it is Jack that we’re talking about. To see the effects of stars sharing dinner ... and alcohol. There’s a reason that winners of supporting acting awards, among the first handed out, have apologized on multiple occasions for “not having much to say … I haven’t had a drink yet.” Give the show some time, and things liven up. People trip going up the stairs to the podium. Presenters give up on the lame jokes on teleprompters to disastrous or hilarious results, or they try to liven up a quiet show

Editor’s note: Seen is a weekly feature showcasing the work of a Tulsa World photojournalist. I got here too early and had to wait for the tai chi class to end. As new people start to arrive, the lights flicker on and Mariangel Shadley passes out jingling, shiny hip scarves. This is the first time any of Mariangel’s students have tried belly CLANTON dancing. They’ve seen her demonstrate it before, or maybe seen it on television, but they’ve never tried it. They giggle occasionally as the class begins, but they really get into the spirit of things and follow the instructor’s directions. For 92-year-old Rita Shisler, a resident of the Tulsa Jewish Retirement and Health Care Center in south Tulsa, it’s a matter of keeping busy. “I don’t want to sit in the corner and have the cobwebs building over me, so I’m going to keep moving.” She takes my hand and starts dancing. She says that if there was music playing right now, she and I would be dancing together.

Rita Shisler, 91, puts on a hip scarf before her first belly dancing class at the Tulsa Jewish Retirement and Health Care Center in Tulsa. “The more you do, the more you can do,” she said. “I don’t want to sit in the corner and have the cobwebs building over me, so I’m going to keep moving.” Photos by JOHN CLANTON/Tulsa World

With her shoes and cane resting under her chair, resident Barbara Johnson takes a break to watch the instructor during a recent belly dancing class.

Staff member Mariangel Shadley (foreground) leads her students, Barbara Dinehart, a staff member, and residents Iris Chandler, Rita Shisler and Eleanor Lutsey at the Tulsa Jewish Retirement and Health Care Center.

A special entree the night we were there was venison ($27), and this was a dish that could mingle with the upper crust. The plate held four sizable slices of venison, cooked near rare, that were as tender and flavorful as one could hope for. It came with a side of wilted spinach in a potato puree. The meaty short rib ($18) also was tender, and picked up significant flavor from a topping of shallot jam and port wine reduction. The three large pieces of fish (in the fish and chips, $16) had a fresh flavor and had been lightly battered and fried, and the fries were fine.

Tulsa Youth Opera will reprise ‘Brundibar’ BY JAMES D. WATTS JR. World Scene Writer

Tulsa Youth Opera members rehearse for performances of “Brundibar” set for Sunday and Jan. 20. CORY YOUNG/Tulsa World

Fifteen years ago, the Tulsa Youth Opera made its debut with a production of “Brundibar,” a fable-like tale of good and evil. The current incarnation of this ensemble, a project of Tulsa Opera’s education and outreach programs, will reprise this work by Hans Krasa with two performances, Sunday and Jan. 20. “This year is also the 70th anniversary of the opera itself,” said Aaron Beck, Tulsa Opera’s director of education and outreach. “It’s such a historically significant piece, and one that people continue to relate to, that it seemed the logical thing to perform it for our 15th an-

No matter what you call it or how you cut it, the Oklahoma Roadhouse osso buco ($12.49) was outstanding. It was amazingly tender and flavorful, and quite a surprise nestled on a menu that is big on steaks, chicken-fried, burgers and catfish. We noticed portions of most dishes being served around the dining room ranged from large to enormous. Not true with the chicken-fried steak ($10.49). It was a modest-sized steak, but it might have been one of the best we ever have tasted — tender, no gristle, perfectly breaded and fried, and covered in good cream gravy. The preferred side was mashed potatoes, of course.

I selected one of the restaurant’s signature dishes, the Tasty Turkey sandwich ($6.95), and my wife had an egg sandwich ($4.80) on whole-grain bread instead of a bagel. We shared a bowl of turkey chili ($3.50) and chipotle chicken salad ($5). The turkey sandwich included layers of lettuce, tomato slices, cucumber slices and mayo on an Asiago cheese bagel, and the egg sandwich was filled with spinach, mushrooms and Swiss cheese. The whole-grain bread was cut thick, and its texture and flavor added to the appeal of the sandwich.

Plumb Theatre is a dream come true BY JERRY FINK

World Correspondent

EUFAULA – Ten years ago, country superstar George Strait funded the tiny Plumb Theatre, a Branson, Mo.-like country and gospel showroom on Oklahoma 9 about five miles east of Eufaula in the community of Longtown. Strait, “The King of Country,” who has sold more No. 1 songs (59) than anyone else in history, didn’t intend to invest in a 110-seat music hall on the shores of Lake Eufaula. But in 1987 he bought a song written by Paul Maloy and Paul’s son, Paul Jr., called “Someone’s Walkin’ Around Upstairs.” At the time, Paul Jr., whose stage name is David Anthony, was playing acoustic guitar for Strait’s Ace in the Hole band. The song appeared on the album “Ocean Front Property,” which quickly went platinum and then doubleplatinum. “My first check was for $11,600,” said Maloy, who lived with his wife, Mattie, in Oklahoma City when he struck platinum — working for Yellow Freight by day and playing country music in bars on weekends. “I thought I’d better invest the money before I spent it.” So he and Mattie bought the building in McIntosh County that now houses the theatre. “My wife moved down here and opened a junk store,” said the Seminole native. She eventually started selling hardware in the junk store, then added a bait shop. “We ran it like that until I could retire,” Maloy said. He retired in 1994 and joined his wife full time, running the store by day and performing at night. “I played for 3½ years at a barbecue place called Desperado’s on Texanna Road (north of Eufaula),” Maloy said. “Then I played for a year and a half at the VFW on Friday night steak nights.” By 2003, thanks to the windfall from George Strait,

fee covers insurance and electricity on the building, which they hope to expand someday – maybe double the size. Friday nights, the gospel music is free, but a “love offering” is accepted. “We didn’t do it to get rich,” Mattie said. “We did it because we love music.” One recent Saturday night there was a sparse crowd, maybe 20 loyal fans who also love traditional country music and don’t care that the show isn’t of the caliber of George Strait and his Ace in the Hole band. They seemed content with Paul Maloy and the Upright Band and the Plumb Theatre Singers. “We played for seven people once,” Mattie said, giving no thought to canceling a show just because the audience is small in number. “Afterwards they were so appreciative. They said they felt like they had a private concert.” Onstage, Paul Maloy was surrounded by Mattie (on bass); lead guitar Jerry Weeks (also a vocalOwner and performer Paul Maloy stands inside the Plumb Theatre on Oklahoma 9 in Longtown, five miles east of Eufaula.  ist); drummer Gene Cokeley; MICHAEL WYKE/Tulsa World and backup singers and twin sisters Gayle Horn and Dayle the junk-bait-hardware busi- on some strings, and then a bass player – just me and him Travis.

Some states unhappy about the idea of happy hour deals BY MICHELLE LOCKE Associated Press

During “happy hour” at the Summer Winter bar in Burlington, Mass., the bargain is on the bivalves, not the brews. That’s because Massachusetts legislators passed a law in 1984 banning bars from offering cut-price drinks. So James Flaherty, the bar’s director of food and beverage, decided to use shellfish specials to draw customers. “We’ve had to get creative by offering something other than a typical happy hour,” he said. “Having a raw bar at the heart of the restaurant, we launched Oyster Happy Hour to appeal to the after work crowd with fresh, local selections and it’s become a popular draw.” And Massachusetts isn’t alone. The concept of happy hour — when bars offer lower prices or two-for-one specials — may seem like an American tradition but is in fact illegal or restricted in quite a few places. Laws vary by state, and even districts within states, so it’s hard to get a handle on the national picture, but Ben Jenkins, vice president of government communications for the Distilled Spirits Council of the United States (DISCUS), has noted some recent activity aimed at updating happy hour laws. A few states, including Oklahoma, Massachusetts and Virginia, recently have considered changes to existing restrictions. The bills failed but are likely to re-emerge. Meanwhile, happy hour became legal in Kansas last year after a 26-year ban. In 2011, Pennsylvania extended happy hour potentials from two to four hours and New Hampshire changed its law to allow establishments to advertise drinks specials. DISCUS does not take a position on happy hour bills, but Jenkins sees the activity in the context of a larger

modernization trend. “States across the country are updating their liquor laws to provide better consumer convenience and increased revenue without raising taxes,” he says. The patchwork nature of the laws is a holdover from Prohibition, when states were left to set regulations once the federal ban had been repealed. Some of the laws written then are still on the books, which can strike an anachronistic note today. For instance, it’s still illegal to sell alcohol in South Carolina on Election Day. And it may surprise you to know that Moore County in Tennessee is “dry” and is also home to the Jack Daniel Distillery. The reasoning behind

happy hour bans or restrictions generally stems from concerns that lowering prices will encourage high consumption and its ensuing problems. “Some communities have issues of morality regarding promoting the drinking of alcohol or concerns regarding the kinds of behavior that can come from drinking too much,” notes Kyle-Beth Hilfer, an advertising and marketing attorney with the New York-based law firm Collen IP. Having so many different rules means bar owners and restaurateurs need to keep up with changes in the laws and read existing statutes carefully, Hilfer says. Some states allow happy

hours but ban advertising them. Oregon, on the other hand, is OK with bars advertising general happy hours but not specific price discounts. Utah outlawed happy hours in 2011. Advertising also can be tricky. A state may OK advertising happy hour specials, but going beyond the simple price and inviting customers to “lose weight at our low-carb beer happy hour,” could be subject to regulation by state alcohol beverage officials, Hilfer explains. She recommends that proprietors of venues that serve alcohol and have happy hours have a lawyer vet advertising copy. Social media has added a new twist to the mix. In Vir-


ginia, it’s illegal for bars and restaurants to advertise happy hours in electronic media, radio, TV and the Internet, a law that goes back to 1984, long before Twitter had left the nest. This year, Virginia legislators considered changing the rules, though the bill ultimately was withdrawn, partly due to concerns about underage drinking. This wasn’t Virginia’s first time to update old laws. In 2006, a tapas restaurant was cited for serving sangria because its recipe, a mix of red wine, brandy and fruit, violated a 1934 law prohibiting the mixing of wine or beer and spirits. In 2008, lawmakers passed a bill sanctioning sangria.

Critics split over portrait of Duchess of Cambridge BY RAPHAEL SATTER Associated Press

LONDON — The Duchess of Cambridge seems to like her first official portrait, which is lucky for the artist. Many critics don’t. Paul Emsley’s portrait of the former Kate Middleton shows the 31-year-old royal against a dark background, her lips pursed into a wry smile, with an ethereal light against her face and hair. Her pale complexion brings out the fine lines under the eyes, and the light adds a hint of silver to her rich brown hair. Shortly after the portrait was unveiled Friday at London’s National Portrait Gallery, critics began grousing. “It’s a great, great opportunity missed,” British Art Journal editor Robin Simon said. “The best thing you can say about it is that she doesn’t actually look like that.” In a telephone interview, Simon said that Kate’s nose was too large and that the painting drained the duchess of her sparkle. Kate “transmits a sense of joie-de-vivre,” he said. “This is dead, dead, dead.” Emsley appeared to have won over his most important audience. Kate called the portrait “just amazing.” Prince William liked it too, saying it was “absolutely beautiful.”

with Adolf Hitler. It would not be until 1942 before the opera would be performed; by then, Krasa had been captured and sent to the Terezin camp in what is now the Czech Republic. There, Krasa rewrote the opera from memory, adapting it for the few musical instruments available. It would be performed more than 50 times, including a special performance for the Red Cross that came to the camp to observe the conditions of the prisoners. “Brundibar demonstrates how art can provide an outlet and escape for what troubles the human existence,” Beck said. “Our young singers have been transformed by their experience with this work, and we hope our audience will too.” James D.

Do you not know your Haneke from a hole in the wall? Don’t suffer in silence, cinema fan. Let us help you, with the official L.A. Times pronunciation guide to the 85th Academy Awards. Herewith, a primer for the names you’re most likely to mangle between now and Feb. 24: Quvenzhané Wallis (KwahVEN-zhah-nay): The 9-yearold star of “Beasts of the Southern Wild” is the tiniest nominee in the lead actress category, but her moniker is big. Still stumped? Just call her by her nickname, Nayzie. Behn Zeitlin (Ben ZITE-lin): Nothing fancy here, folks. The H is silent in the New York-born “Beasts” director’s first name, as in another famous Ben — Affleck. Michael Haneke (Mik-ALE HAN-uh-ka): The Austrian writer-director of “Amour” is known for the dark subject matter of his films. But when it comes to his name, think festival of lights. “Haneke” sounds like “Hanukkah.” Janusz Kaminski (YAN-ush Ka-MIN-ski): Steven Spielberg’s Polish cinematographer just received his sixth Oscar nomination with his work on “Lincoln,” which makes it a fine time to finally start saying his name right. John Gatins (GAYT-ins): He’s nominated in the original screenplay category for “Flight,” in which Denzel Washington plays an airline pilot with a substance abuse problem. Christoph Waltz (Kris-TOFF Valtz): Nominated for supporting actor for his turn as a dentist-turnedbounty-hunter in Quentin Tarantino’s “Django Unchained,” Waltz is German-Austrian, which means the W in his last name sounds like a V. And “Christoph” is no typo — leave off the “er.” Ang Lee: The Taiwanborn director of “Life of Pi” added a G to masculinize his name among English speakers. “Ang” rhymes with “Tang,” not “Gong.”

Halsey Carnival season kicks off along the Gulf Coast exhibit to return BY STACEY PLAISANCE Associated Press


Tulsa-based music impresario Jim Halsey will get his own exhibit at the Gaylord-Pickens Museum in Oklahoma City. It will be hosted in the Tulsa World Gallery starting Friday through April 5. The exhibit, “Starmaker: Jim Halsey and the Legends of Country Music,” debuted in 2010 with an all-star opening at the Oklahoma History Center. It showcases the storied life of the music promoter, featuring more than 60 years of memorabilia. Born in Independence, Kan., in 1930, Halsey began promoting concerts while still in high school. He formed Jim Halsey Co. Talent Agency in 1951 in Oklahoma with his first client, Hank Thompson. Halsey made an impact on the careers of musicians including Waylon Jennings, Reba McEntire, Minnie Pearl, Clint Black, Tammy Wynette, Merle Haggard, Dwight Yoakam, Conway Twitty, Leon Russell, The Judds, Willie Nelson and Bob Wills. “Even in the late 1950s, we were pioneering Southeast Asia and the European markets with Wanda Jackson and Hank Thompson,” Halsey said in a statement. “Our specialty was taking country music to locations and venues where it had never been presented before.” At its height, the Jim Halsey Co. was the largest country music agency in the world. He still works with musicians Roy Clark and the Oak Ridge Boys. He helped launch Wanda Jackson’s career and was the first to take Roy Orbison’s and Roy Clark’s all-American sound behind the Iron Curtain. “Starmaker: Jim Halsey and the Legends of Country Music” was produced by the Oklahoma History Center. The exhibit includes gold and platinum albums presented to Halsey artists, photos and stage clothing. On display are guitars from Halsey’s collections signed by artists such as BB King, Bob Dylan and Eric Clapton. The opening reception will be 5-7 p.m. Friday at the Gaylord-Pickens Museum, 1400 Classen Drive in Oklahoma City. The reception is open to the public, free for Oklahoma Heritage Association and museum members and $5 for nonmembers. RSVP to Corie Baker at 405-523-3206 or email clb@

NEW ORLEANS — Christmas wreaths and holiday parties gave way to king cakes and street parades as the Carnival season kicked off last weekend along the Gulf Coast. In New Orleans, the noisy and colorful streetcar ride of the Phunny Phorty Phellows troupe marked the first street appearance of the Carnival season. The costumed revelers boarded a St. Charles Avenue streetcar last Sunday, Twelfth Night, the traditional start of the Carnival season that for many Christians also marks the end of the Christmas season. As a brass band played, the masked troupe sipped champagne, tossed the first Mardi Gras beads of the season and gobbled up king cake — Carnival’s signature pastry topped with sugar in the traditional Carnival colors of purple, green and gold. Another Twelfth Night tradition: A Joan of Arcinspired walking club of revelers dressed in medieval-themed costumes on the streets of New Orleans costumed as knights, monks and peasants, and some were on horseback. On Monday, New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu greeted royalty from the Rex and Zulu clubs at historic Gallier Hall, where they unveiled their official 2013 posters and ate king cake with captains from the city’s other major parading organizations. Mardi Gras — Fat Tuesday — falls on Feb. 12, and record crowds are expected with the NFL’s Super Bowl championship game being held in New Orleans about a week earlier, on Feb. 3. In the weeks leading up to Mardi Gras, more than 100 parades will roll through streets or

Fat Tuesday is about a month away, but the Carnival season of balls, parties and parades has already started. In New Orleans, the ball of the 12th Night Revelers begins the social season, while a streetcar ride of the Phunny Phorty Phellows marks the first street appearance of the celebration. Before Mardi Gras — Feb. 12 — parades and gala balls will be held in dozens of communities along the French Gulf Coast until Carnival gives way to the Lenten season. GERALD HERBERT/Associated Press file

float down waterways in dozens of communities along the Gulf Coast. “Mardi Gras really is a shared cultural event that spans the entire Gulf Coast,” said Beth Carriere, executive director of the Mississippi Gulf Coast Convention and Visitors Bureau. Mardi Gras was first marked in 1699 when French explorers stopped for the festival along the Mississippi River, south of what 19 years later would become the settlement of New Orleans. In the early 1700s, celebrations cropped up as French colonists settled in Mobile, Ala., and Biloxi, Miss. Mobile has the oldest community

celebration, dating from 1703. Those communities still hold dozens of parades in the weeks leading up to Mardi Gras, and Mobile has a museum dedicated to its Carnival history. There are the festive street parades, where watchers plead for beads, doubloons and other trinkets from maskers riding huge floats. In coming weeks, the revelry will reach inland to such cities as Natchez, Miss., and Shreveport, La. Rochelle Hicks, a former Natchez resident who now serves as executive director of the Mississippi Tourism Association in Madison, Miss., said that, like New

Orleans, Natchez and other Mississippi towns have organized Carnival clubs with formal balls, royalty and float parades. Some clubs include Mardi Gras Indians in full feather headdresses, marching bands and parades geared for children with decorated wagons in place of floats. In south Louisiana’s Cajun country, Mardi Gras traditionally includes costumed revelers on horseback who ride from farm to farm collecting birds and other ingredients for gumbo. Some of the bigger parades in New Orleans will include celebrities. This year, actor Gary Sinise and New Orleans musicians

Troy “Trombone Shorty” Andrews and Harry Connick Jr. will lead the parade of the Krewe of Orpheus on the evening of Lundi Gras, the day before Fat Tuesday, and perform at the glitzy ball that follows. Joining them in the parade will be Emmy- and Golden Globe-winning actress Mariska Hargitay, the Imagination Movers — a New Orleans-based rock band for kids — and Animal Planet’s Tillman, the skateboarding bulldog. The end of Carnival is marked by Ash Wednesday, the day after Fat Tuesday, when Lent begins as the faithful prepare for Easter.

For Dillon International, it’s always about the children. That is true, even at the agency’s annual Lunar New Year benefit dinner, where many of the adopted children from various countries — all dressed in traditional costumes — take part in a parade through the ballroom, which brings smiles and occasional tears of joy to those in the crowd. It will all be in place when Friends of Dillon International rings in the Year of the Snake at the 18th annual go-round 5:30-8:30 p.m. Feb. 10 at the Doubletree Hotel Downtown Tulsa. The festivities will feature international entertainment celebrating the vibrant culture of India, live and silent auctions, the procession of children, and an opportunity to learn about the agency’s programs for children and families. Items featured in the live auction include a five-night stay for two in Kauai, Hawaii; a week at a luxurious condo in Florida; a Branson, Mo., weekend package; an American Girl weekend package at the Hyatt Place Dallas; and four club seats for an OSU football game.

Dear Amy: Many years ago my family lived in a communist country. My wife and I faced many challenges to come to the United States. After coming here, our main goal was the well-being of our daughter. She got a college degree and is now a successful professional, married and with a daughter of her own. My wife died 25 years ago. I live alone on the West Coast. My daughter lives in the Northeast. After I retired, like millions of elderly people I wanted to relocate close to my only child and grandchild. I don’t need financial help; my only desire is to see them at least once a month. Unfortunately, my daughter does not want me to live close to her or even to visit them (I told her that I will stay in a hotel) because my presence “makes her nervous.” I asked many times what are the things she does not like and expressed readiness to correct my behavior. No answer from her. I have never interfered in her life. She wrote that she is grateful to me for what I did raising her and that she loves me (but does not want to see me). I am devastated. What should I do? — Lonely Dear Lonely: In a way, your daughter has chosen exile from her home; there may be something about this impulse that you understand (more than you realize). If you want to visit her, then you should plan a trip to her area and let her know several days ahead of time that you will be in town and would like to see her. This would take some bravery on your part, but I do believe that even if this does not result in a reconciliation, you would feel better knowing that you tried. Give her the opportunity to express herself and be open to talking, even if you don’t like what you hear. Beyond that, you should do your utmost to build a life for yourself wherever you want to live. Make an effort to join organizations, develop friendships with people your own age and reach out to people from your home country who live in the States (if you would feel comfortable). Dear Amy: I’m responding to the issue of texting while at a social gathering. The reason this is rude is because of the message it

Ask Amy askamy

conveys: “Your gathering isn’t worthy of my whole attention.” The host is expending effort and expense to stage a worthwhile event, and the gracious guest should convey (in word and deed) that there is no place he or she would rather be. What should a host do when a guest is sitting on the sofa texting? Option one is ignore it but also never invite the person back. Option two is to attempt to draw the guest into conversation with others. Option three is to sidle up to the guest and say, “I’m sorry you aren’t able to be here for the party.” If the guest doesn’t correct his or her behavior, do not invite the person back. The most important gift a guest can give a host is his or her genuine presence. That is what the guest is agreeing to provide when the invitation is accepted. — Present and Accountable Dear Present: I absolutely agree. Thank you. Dear Amy: I am responding to your answer to “PO’d Husband,” who wrote concerning his wife not being able to resist the candies in her sightline at work. I think your response was wrong and insensitive. There is research about food as an addiction, some of it done at Yale, where it has been found that flour and sugar are as addictive as alcohol and drugs. I would have hoped you would know this and given a more “medical” and appropriate response. — Lisa Dear Lisa: Unlike alcohol and drugs, which are not necessary for human consumption, each of us has to struggle to control ourselves around the various “addictive” foods we encounter, because we all have to eat in order to live. I don’t believe in legislating against every conceivable personal choice in the workplace. Send questions to Amy Dickinson via email to or by mail to Ask Amy, Chicago Tribune, TT500, 435 N. Michigan Ave., Chicago, IL 60611.

Why a home birth? Home births have been on the rise in the U.S. since 2004, according to 2012 data from the National Center for Health Statistics. Home births in the country rose by 29 percent from 2004 to 2009, according to the data. According to a 2010 Tulsa World story, in Oklahoma, births attended by midwives that occur outside of a hospital increased 54 percent from 2004 to 2007. Faith Morie, who delivered the Drivers’ baby, has been a midwife for a little more than five years. Many of the women who opt for a home birth choose it for the same reasons as the Drivers — to have as natural a birth as possible, free of temptations of pain medications or other interventions they consider unnecessary, such as physicians’ decisions to induce labor. Some of those who give birth at home do it for religious reasons, or because they want only women involved in the labor process. For others, the decision is cultural or based on financial considerations, as home births can be less costly for those who have no medical insurance. Morie estimates that the services of a midwife range from $2,000 to $4,000. And for some, the relationship-based care and more one-on-one time that a midwife can offer is appealing. Morie is a certified professional midwife, meaning she did not receive formal training at a hospital the way a certified nurse midwife does. She completed her training through the Association of Texas Midwives, through a combination of distance learning and apprenticing with certified midwives, then received her certification through the North American Registry of Midwives after passing exams. Morie says not all women are candidates for home birth. She and most midwives usually only accept clients with low-risk pregnancies. Those who have gestational diabetes, high blood pressure, certain blood-borne diseases, genetic conditions or other risk factors are better off at a hospital, she said. But for the rest, Morie believes home birth is a safe option. And when complications arise, as they sometimes do, midwives transport their clients to a hospital, where they can receive the help they need.

Moms’ experiences Several Tulsa-area mothers say their home-birth experiences were wonderful. Anna Transue, who gave birth to her first child in September, said she never

Jon and Rachel Driver hold their newborn daughter, Jocelyn. “I was able to rub (Rachel’s) back, help her, get her water if she needed it, instead of being the middleman who had to ask permission for everything,” Jon Driver said of the benefits of a home birth. MICHAEL WYKE/Tulsa World

wanted a home birth. “I started out seeing a doctor,” she said. “But as I was progressing through my pregnancy, it became clear that my philosophy was not lining up with the doctor’s.” Transue said she had always aligned with the midwifery model of birth, and Ina May Gaskin’s “Guide to Childbirth” book — published in 2003 — opened her eyes to the alternatives to hospital birth. Transue argues that birth is a natural human function, not a disease or sickness that requires hospitalization. “We are capable of birthing babies,” she said. So, seven months into her pregnancy, Transue switched to the care of Ruth Cobb, a certified nurse midwife. Transue originally intended to deliver at Cobb’s birth center, a facility where women who work with a midwife can give birth, but she decided to avoid the additional fee and have Cobb deliver her baby at home. “It was a really great experience,” she said. Transue had been anxious that a home birth would be messy and did not want people invading her space at home. But, she said, being in the comfort of her own home during the 10-hour labor turned out to be great. Jennifer Schafer, a mother of three, agrees. Although Schafer had her first two children at a hospital with no problems, she chose to deliver her third child at home. She had heard that home births were powerful experiences, and hers was.

“It was more peaceful, in your own environment,” said Schafer, who had her youngest child six months ago. She also liked being able to move around her home during her labor, rather than being restricted to a bed as she was in the hospital. And she didn’t feel rushed through

for the last 200 years, medical science has improved the outcome.” Years ago, moms had a higher chance of dying during childbirth because of bleeding, infections or other complications. When more people began having hospital births, the deaths decreased, he said. Frame said those who view home births as perfectly safe options have not seen the “horror stories” that doctors see. In recent years, studies have offered different statistics on the safety of home births. A 2005 study in the British Medical Journal found that home birth had a similar mortality rate to that of low-risk hospital births. But a 2011 statement by the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists says published medical evidence shows that planned home births carry a two- to three-fold increase in the risk of newborn death compared with planned hospital births. Frame said it is hard to come by maternal morbidity rates during home births because those deaths are attributed to hospitals that are often trying to help a patient brought in after a home birth has gone bad. He said home births sound great, but mothers who choose to deliver at home are thinking only of Differing statistics themselves. “It’s ‘I want, I want, I Lynn Frame, an OB-GYN want,’ ” he said. And they at St. John, is an opponent of come in with a mindset that home births. doctors and nurses are the Frame agrees that birth is a bad guys, he said. natural human function. “I choose not to be set up “Women have had babies to be the fall guy,” he said. for a million years before Frame strongly advises obstetricians,” he says. “But against home births.

the whole process, she said. No one in her family or circle of friends had had a home birth before, but all were supportive, Schafer said. There were no complications during her delivery, and she was able to manage her pain by standing during the 28-hour labor, she said. If she had been required to stay in bed in a hospital setting, she says she is sure she would have requested an epidural after about eight hours. Although the idea of having as natural a birth as possible had always been on her mind, Taylor Kilburn wasn’t opposed to a hospital birth, if she could find what she was looking for. But she says an unhelpful conversation with her general practice doctor early in her pregnancy turned her away from looking for an option within the more traditional setting, such as working with a midwife at a hospital, and she reluctantly made the decision to have a home birth. The three women say they knew there were risks to a home birth, but they didn’t think it was any riskier than a hospital birth. “I really believe if a woman is low-risk, and you’re working with a midwife or professional who know what they are doing, then having a home birth is completely safe,” Transue said.



“Don’t do it,” he said. “It’s more dangerous.”

Other natural options But home birth is not the only option for people looking for natural births. Lynne Burson, a midwife with OU physicians, said the majority of certified nurse midwives — those trained as nurses — work in a hospital. There are five midwives on the OU team, and they deliver babies at Hillcrest Medical Center and the Peggy V. Helmerich Women’s Center. Midwives work with patients who are low-risk, Burson said. They are able to spend a little bit more time with patients, allowing labors to progress in a natural way. In many instances, they are able to accommodate the patient’s wishes, such as not receiving an epidural or not having their labor artificially accelerated. But she says there is a delicate balance between being able to accommodate patients’ wishes and following hospital procedure. For example, if a patient who has had a previous cesarean section asks to eat throughout her labor, midwives cannot allow it, in case the patient needs another c-section. “But most of the requests we can accommodate,” she said. All parties encourage women to educate themselves before making a decision. But Frame cautions against relying solely on home birth advocates for information. Nour Habib 918-581-8369

Stereo tech still evolving, event proves


hile worldwide attention focused on the 2013 International Consumer Electronics Show last week in Las Vegas, another event was conducted nearby that almost didn’t register on mainstream radar. Held simultaneously with CES was The Home Entertainment Show, or T.H.E. Show. It focused on a product that long was a mainstay of almost every household and definitely the subject of much teenage longing — the stereo system. Traditional audio rigs — preamplifier, amplifier, two speakers — once themselves commanded center stage at CES. In recent decades, though, such components have declined John in popularto hobby Stancavage ity status, and their Business Editor remaining fans john.stancavage often are looked at with puzzle918-581-8314 ment and a little caution. I’m one of those nutballs, I’m afraid. So, while I was following Tech Writer Robert Evatt’s daily coverage of CES with much interest, I also kept up with the handful of audio bloggers at T.H.E. Show. The audio event, as far as I can tell, didn’t have movie stars, dancing girls or CEOs from bazilliondollar global conglomerates. Instead, it had quite a few tiny companies from the U.S., many of which sprang up out of someone’s garage because they thought they could build a better-sounding speaker or amplifier. The year 2013 finds music reproduction at an interesting point in its evolution. On one hand, even high-end stereo hobbyists are downloading some songs and playing back tracks stored on computers. On the other hand, not only are compact discs still coveted among this niche of music fans, but vinyl albums — yes, old fashioned 33⅓-rpm records — are making a comeback. From what I read, T.H.E. Show had a fascinating mix of stereo equipment, ranging from wireless and USB sources to simple beltdriven turntables and amplifiers with big, glowing tubes — just like grandpa used to have. No matter what strategy a highend audio designer chooses, the goal is the same: music playback that is close to hearing the real thing. Vinyl and tubes, especially, are thought by their proponents to offer a warmth that makes listening an addictive pleasure. It’s the antithesis of the digital age, where most people play squawky data-compressed MP3 files on cheap earbuds or maybe an iPod dock-equipped version of the old plastic clock radio. Those gadgets are cool, but when was the last time your heart skipped a beat from the swell of an orchestral passage or you stayed up well into the night rediscovering a favorite artist? A good stereo component system can do that. We’ll send Robert to CES again next year, and I’m looking forward to reading about all the new gee-whiz inventions. But I’m also thinking of booking some PTO that week. T.H.E. Show is calling my name.

recover. I walked as much of the 1.9 million square feet of show space as I possibly could during the world’s biggest tech show; I never knew when I was going to walk into an intriguing new find. Because the show’s concept is so broad — if it’s tech, it’s in — the experience melts into a potpourri of things that beep and blink. Trends are easy to spot. This year’s CES felt like a show in transition, as longtime anchor Microsoft was nowhere to be found. Sure, the company had just finished releasing Windows 8 and a slew of associated products, but it was still jarring to see the company’s booth space taken up by Hisense, a Chinese manufacturer I had never heard of. Plenty of tech pundits have questioned the continued

relevance of the show, as Google and Apple skip CES in favor of their own events. Then again, these companies are so huge that any move they make gets plenty of attention. Even with these missing spots, I’d argue the show is as relevant as ever. Beyond the new announcements from all the other huge companies, CES plays host to up-and-coming companies with ideas and flair many of the big boys are too scared or uninterested to try. One example is the ZOMM Wireless Leash, a Tulsamade product that was

‘Do not call’ law has its limits for consumers Dear Action Line: I thought the “Do not call” list meant telemarketers were required to buy the list and to not call anyone on it. I received many calls on a phone number I registered with the “do not call list,” and as they were from “unknown,” never answered them. I filed a complaint with the Oklahoma Attorney General’s office, and his reply was, “Telemarketers are not in violation of the law just for making the calls.” So it appears the “do not call” list is not what we thought it was. What’s your take on this? — C.S., Tulsa.

Study: Degree blunts recession • While younger job seekers struggled, those with college degrees fared better than those without. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS It was a defining image of the Great Recession: floundering college grads stuck back home, living in mom and dad’s basement. But while rooted in some truth, that picture doesn’t show fully how the prolonged economic downturn broadly impacted people in their early 20s, according to a new study out. In fact, those degrees offered strong protections against the recession’s worst effects. The study, an analysis of U.S. Census data by the Pew Economic Mobility Project, makes no claim that recent years have been golden ones for new college graduates. Wages were down and have yet to recover, unemployment and student debt were up and fewer grads have found jobs befitting their education level. But the report finds all of those negative effects came in

much smaller doses for college graduates than for those with associate’s degrees or only a high school credential, and that fewer graduates fell out of work entirely. “This is not to discredit those individual stories” of adult children lodged in basements, said Diana Elliott, research manager for the project. “But overall, the majority of college graduates came through the recession with some minor setbacks in the labor markets” — at least in comparison to those with lesser credentials. The study contributes to

an increasingly voluble national debate over the economic value of a college degree. It doesn’t factor in the price — a critical variable when families ask if college is worth it. Most experts contend that despite tuition inflation, the wage premium for a bachelor’s degree remains general-

ly worthwhile, amounting by some calculations to up to $1 million in lifetime earnings on average. The current unemployment rate is 3.9 percent for those with a bachelor’s degree or higher, compared to 6.9 percent for those with an associate’s or some college and 8 percent for those with just high school. But those figures cover adults of all ages, and there’s been less study of whether the cost-benefit analysis might look different for recent graduates. The report finds the employment rate for people in that age group with a bachelor’s degree fell from 69 percent before the recession to 67 percent during and was still down at 65 percent as of December 2011. But the drops were sharper for those with lower credentials — from 64 percent to 57 percent for those with associate’s degrees, and 55 percent to 47 percent for those with just high school.

Raises raise expectations

• They’re not just handed out anymore; employers insist on performance. NEW YORK (AP) — Raises are no longer a sure thing at Warner Communications. Staffers at the public relations firm who were virtually assured of an annual salary bump before the recession have to work a lot harder to get an increase. “Everyone needs to make a difference. It was always said but never enforced until right now,” says Carin Warner, owner of the company based in Manchester-by-the-Sea, Mass. Yearly pay raises that workers at small businesses used to count on have become a casualty of the weak economy. They’re increasingly based on performance — not just an employee’s performance, but the entire company’s. Raises at many businesses are also smaller than they were before the recession began five years ago. And some employers are using rewards other than annual raises to compensate workers. Warner expects all of her 15 employees — even the newest ones — to bring in new business in addition to doing an exemplary job taking care of current clients. Raises are also based on the company’s revenue and profit. “You have to look at an individual and at the overall agency’s success. It’s a mathematical formula that we must do,” Warner says. Warner is part of a growing trend of small businesses abandoning the idea that they must give their workers raises every year. “The days of the traditional merit increases and cost of living increases seem, at least for now, to be behind us,” says Carrie Cherveny, vice president of employment practices for AlphaStaff, a Fort Lauderdale, Fla.-based company that provides companies with human resources services such as pay-



Look back at past year’s concerns

roll, benefits administration and hiring assistance. “What we are seeing is compensation tied to corporate performance — you’ll get a raise or bonus if we do well.” Whether they’ll do well is the big question for many small business owners. Jobs and incomes are growing, but not fast enough to make them more confident that a healthy economy will give their sales a boost. The most recent monthly jobs report showed that U.S. employers hired 155,000 people in December, less than the 175,000 or more that would get economists excited. Managers at Ontraport, a company that makes marketing software for businesses, are willing to give big raises — 10 percent or more — but they’re not guaranteed. “We don’t have a process in place where we just give automatic raises to everyone every year,” says Landon Ray, CEO of the company based in Santa Barbara, Calif. The company did well and kept growing during the recession. But Ray says it still needs to be careful. The biggest raises at Ontraport are intended to attract and keep top talent in the competitive high-tech industry, Ray says. Employees whose

work is disappointing will find themselves left out when raises are given at mid-year. Raises at Mercury Labs depend on how well the St. Louis-based video production and marketing company does. Salaries were frozen for more than a year from 2008-09, and owner Angie Lawing isn’t sure about raises for this year because revenue slid 25 percent in 2012. But Lawing has given her employees a chance to win a bonus by finding new business leads. One staffer got a $3,000 bonus for a lead that turned into a $30,000 contract. Lawing created the bonuses during the 2008 salary freeze. “It’s a response to some employees who were very disappointed at not having the ability to have an official raise,” Lawing says. “We asked ourselves, ‘How do we keep them and give them other incentives?’” Workers at Tasty Catering get a raise only if the Glenview, Ill., corporate caterer reaches its quarterly profit goals. “This has become a team thing,” CEO Tom Walter says. “It’s not a discretionary thing where people cuddle up to the boss to see if they can get a raise.”

Tasty Catering gave no raises in the second half of 2012 because the company missed its goals for both the third and fourth quarters. Employees got the news at quarterly meetings held to discuss the company’s revenue and profits. Last week staffers heard that 2013 looks like it will be a difficult year for the business. Raises and some perks like paid gym memberships are on hold, Walter says. The raises at Christine Perkett’s public relations firm are about 2 percent lower than they were before the recession. She had stopped giving increases to workers at Bostonbased Perkett PR in early 2009 and also laid off half her staff of 30. The company had suffered along with other public relations firms; clients’ marketing budgets were one of the first expenses cut when the recession hit. Perkett started giving raises again 18 months ago. But increases are smaller than in the past, and Perkett is also giving out fewer bonuses. Employees have to work harder to get a bonus. Before the recession they were rewarded for bringing in clients. Now they also have to show they’re working hard to keep them.

Tulsa-based BOK ranked No. 22 on the list, up from No. 35 the year before. Oklahoma City-based BancFirst ranked No. 13. To gauge the health of the biggest banks, Forbes used data from SNL Financial, which supplied information regarding the asset quality, capital adequacy and profitability of the 100 largest publicly traded banks and thrifts. Forbes ranked the banks based on eight metrics of financial health, including return on average equity, net interest margin and nonperforming loans as a percentage of loans, among others. The data is based on regulatory filings through the 2012 third quarter, according to the publication. BOK Financial had total assets of $27 billion and a return on average equity of 11.9 percent. Its nonperforming loans as a percentage of loans was 1.1 percent, according to the publication. BancFirst, with $6 billion in assets, had a return on average equity of 10.4 percent. Nonperforming loans to total loans was 0.7 percent, according to the publication.

Small business lending increases in Oklahoma

OK Ethics tackles toxic workplace issues

Oklahoma institutions receiving capital through the Small Business Lending Fund continue to increase their small business lending, in total by more than $407.5 million over their baselines, according to a recent report from the U.S. Department of the Treasury. Across the country, SBLF participants have increased lending by $7.4 billion overall and $740 million over the prior quarter. Community banks participating in SBLF have also increased business lending by substantially greater amounts than a peer group of similar banks. The SBLF, established as part of the Small Business Jobs Act that President Barack Obama signed into law in 2010, encourages community banks to increase their lending to small businesses, helping those companies expand their operations and create new jobs. Treasury invested more than $4 billion in 332 institutions through the SBLF. Collectively, these institutions operate in more than 3,000 locations across 48 states. SBLF encourages lending to small businesses by providing capital to community banks and community-development loan funds with less than $10 billion in assets.

Syndicated author and psychotherapist Linnda Durré will discuss proven techniques for diagnosing and treating toxic workplace issues quickly and effectively during the Tulsa Chapter of Oklahoma Business Ethics Consortium (OK Ethics) luncheon Jan. 24. Dealing with pestering co-workers, unmanageable managers or angry clients can take a toll on job performance. Referencing methods outlined in her book, “Surviving the Toxic Workplace,” Durré will cover how to pinpoint and treat these office maladies with effective communication, integrity and conflict-negotiation techniques. The luncheon is scheduled from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Doubletree Hotel Downtown, 616 W. Seventh St. Cost is $25 for OK Ethics members and $35 for nonmembers. Reservations are required. Register online at by Jan. 21. The event qualifies for one continuing professional education credit.

When going through the columns I wrote this past year for our website, I discovered some common themes. Here are some of the issues that you were most interested in during the year and links to columns that remain timely. Protecting your home: At the end of the year, readers were very concerned about how to protect their homes and finances from natural disasters after seeing the devastation from Hurricane Sandy. As snowstorms start to hit, readers want to know what to do to get ready. After the summer and fall storms, readers also wanted help getting their homeowners insurance claims paid smoothly, and they asked how to find assistance if they didn’t have coverage. Health insurance: Readers continue to have a lot of questions about what will happen to their health insurance over the next few years, now that the Supreme Court has upheld the health care law. (See “Your Health Care: What’s Next?” at for an explanation of changes that have already taken place and those that will be coming soon.) The column “Make the Most of Health Insurance Changes in 2013” provides strategies for getting the most out of your health insurance coverage. Medicare: People older than 65 always have a lot of questions during fall open

ASK KIM enrollment about strategies for filling the gaps in Medicare. And as the year begins and they start to pay their new premiums for Medicare Part B and Part D, they want to know whether they can contest the high-income surcharge. IRA distributions: I get questions throughout the year about required minimum distribution strategies for people age 70½ and older — see “Answers to Questions About Required IRA Distributions” (tulsaworld. com/kipira). Readers are also very interested in strategies for making the most of their Social Security benefits (see “How to Qualify for the Maximum Social Security Benefit” at Taxes: As always, saving on taxes was a big topic. (See “Don’t Forget These 5 Tax Breaks for Frequently Overlooked Deductions” at ID theft: Finally, readers continue to have a lot of questions about protecting themselves from ID theft and the latest generation of scams. (See “Protect Yourself From New Phishing Schemes” at kipidprotect.) Kimberly Lankford is a contributing editor to Kiplinger’s Personal Finance magazine.

Small purchases can help at home Upgrades to your home don’t have to cost a bundle. Here are some ideas for making small changes in the new year. Convert a fireplace to gas. Don’t want the muss and fuss of a wood fire in your fireplace? Install gas logs. For $600, you can get 2-foot-long, realisticlooking ceramic logs in your choice of wood type and arrangement (stacked neatly or askew), including a gas burner. Installation costs $200 to $350, and it’s about $15 to $25 per foot to run a gas line. Add a backsplash with pizazz. An average, 10-by-10-foot kitchen requires about 33 square feet of backsplash coverage. You’ll pay about $28 per square foot, including installation, for midrange-quality white tiles or for basic-quality mosaic glass tile. Money left over? Update your sink faucet, cabinet hardware or lights. Channel Jack Nicklaus. Improve your short game (indoors or out) with a Pro Putt Trainer. You get a 4-by-12-foot swath of Mirage TourPutt, a synthetic turf used by Ping at its testing facilities. TourPutt looks and acts like bent-grass turf, so your ball will roll perfectly straight in any direc-

FAMILY FINANCES tion, and a chip shot will land and roll naturally. It requires no messy infill of sand or pelletized rubber for the grass to stand straight. The turf lays atop a 2.5-inch-high base of interlocking panels. The whole thing assembles or disassembles in less than a half-hour. Keep cash safe in a safe. When electrical power goes down, so do ATMs and merchants’ ability to accept debit and credit cards. That’s why you should have enough cash at home to cover the cost of a week’s worth of groceries and emergency supplies, as well as gas and a motel room in case of an evacuation. A rule of thumb is to have $500 to $1,000 on hand. Safeguard it with important documents and perhaps some valuables. You’ll pay about $200 to $500 for a home safe that’s fire-resistant (rated for one hour of fire) with a bit more than 1 cubic foot of space. For a two-hour rating and 2 cubic feet of space, the price jumps to about $700. To send a question or comment about this story, go to kiplingerfeedback.

Favorites from CES

he Consumer Electronics Show features near-countless products every year, so it can be a little difficult to narrow the list down to just a few favorites. But after some serious mulling over, I finally did. Here they are, in no — ROBERT EVATT, World Staff Writer particular order:

HzO Multiple companies featured various solutions for making tablets and smartphones water-resistant or waterproof, such as special cases. Yet HzO trumped them all with a polymer treatment applied directly to the device. At its booth I saw several different models sitting in water and staying perfectly functional, even an iPhone with exposed ports. HzO is in negotiations to include this as standard equipment on a future phone.

New Cox cable guide Even if Cox weren’t the area cable provider, I’d still say the company has the best new cable interface I’ve seen at the show. Sporting the working title “Personal Video Experience,” the software has profiles for each user, learns what types of programs and movies you prefer and suggests ones you might enjoy. It’s also got smartphone and tablet connectivity. A key selling point is its appearance: The information floats attractively over live video. This software should begin to roll out in the spring.

The screen is permanently attached to the keyboard, but pegs on each side allow it to flip over. The resulting tablet is slightly heavier than the tablet norm, but the promised HD screen, 8 GB of memory and 256 GB of solid-state storage should make it a solid performer.

Xi3 Modular Computer I’ve seen computers smaller than the one being developed by Xi3 Corp., but none have been more striking. Its computer is maybe half

Or HAPILabs’ HAPIFork. Could you possibly imagine a profitdriven CEO of a megacorporation approving an e-fork? This company did, and the idea of tracking how fast you’re eating isn’t a bad one at all. To me, these brave and innovative companies represent the true soul of CES, and many of them would never have such a great platform to let the world know of their creations without the show. The HAPIFork seemed like everything that could possibly connect with your tablet or smartphone did. More than any other year, I saw cars, fitness accessories, robots, speakers, televisions, appliances and plenty of other things that linked up with mobile

devices. I even saw some Bluetoothcapable jewelry that vibrates when you get a text message or leave your phone behind. This development is piggybacking off an incredibly successful sector, but it also shows just how much tablets and smartphones have changed our lives and have transitioned from luxuries to commonplace equipment. Plus it’s a reminder of just how much potential still lies within tablets and smartphones. With the right apps and accessories, amazing new functions continue to be unlocked. Televisions, always a strong presence at CES, aren’t being left behind. The term “second screen” was tossed around frequently to refer to using tablets and smartphones to watch content remotely or control what’s on the main screen.

Dell XPS 13 It was hard to find a laptop at CES that didn’t feature a touchscreen and detachable keyboard to transform it into a tablet. The Dell XPS 13 takes a

Many companies displayed ultra highdefinition televisions at the 2013 CES, but the big question is when 4K content will be available.  JULIE JACOBSON/ Associated Press

TV manufacturers are still chasing the smart TV dream, though none of their past efforts have truly driven sales. Maybe I’m an optimist, but the various smart TV solutions demonstrated this year seemed more polished and usable than in past years, so some of them might become a reason to pay a

little extra for a set. Unlike 3-D. Although highly touted at past CES shows, 3-D was almost dead this year. The few 3-D-capable sets at the show were shoved in quieter corners of company booths, as if to say “We’ve also got this, I guess.” Even the annual prototypes of

Parrot’s Flower Power may be the solution if you suffer from black thumb. The device measures sunlight, temperature, fertilizer and moisture levels and sends the data to a tablet or computer. ROBERT EVATT/Tulsa World

glasses-free 3-D TVs were gone, except at the booth of one Chinese manufacturer I had never heard of. In its place, we’ve got hype over 4K, or ultra high-definition. Essentially, it’s higher definition than high definition, with more than 4,000 pixels in every horizontal row. I think I saw three different companies boast that they had the world’s largest 4K TV. Of course, the big question is when we’ll start getting 4K content, but that’s a column for another week. A lot of what was shown at CES may never show up. Some technology is presented just as a concept, others might get canceled, and others might run out of funding. That’s the danger of showcasing the latest technology. Even so, I’d never give up the chance to at least see it. I’m already daydreaming of the possibilities for next year’s show.

Opportunities to make money online are waiting


he year 2013 is barely out of the starting gate, and some finance experts already predict that the U.S. economy will make a roaring comeback this year. Of course, other pundits warn that we should be very worried. Whatever happens, you can resolve to improve your personalKim economy this year. Komando Digital technology, combined with your Kim talent and Komando passion, is a moneymaking opportunity waiting to happen. Whether you’re looking to pocket some extra cash or major part-time income, these ideas could put you on the road to a wealthier new year. Sell crafts or collectibles online: If you have a talent for making jewelry, pottery or other crafts — or just a knack for finding vintage gems at garage and estate sales — consider selling your objects through an online storefront. Etsy is the largest and most popular marketplace for handmade and vintage goods. You can also try ArtFire and Zibbet. Have you designed a killer line of iPad cases or Kids’ tees? Take a look at up-andcoming Redbubble. Want to display traditional art? Artbreak is a fast-growing online

gallery for traditional artists — and it’s commission-free. If you have an e-book, song, template, computer wallpaper or other kind of digital file to sell, take a look at commission-free UploadNSell. Amazon-owned CreateSpace can help indie authors, musicians and filmmakers sell works to online buyers. Cash in on your photos: Licensing your best photos to microstock agencies such as iStockphoto, Shutterstock and Dreamstime is a great way for above-average photographers to make money. There’s a lot of competition, but Web designers and other electronic publishers buy tens of thousands of photos every day to illustrate stories and ads. Research top-selling images at microstock sites to get a feel for what buyers want, and then do whatever you do best, whether that’s food, portraits, sports or landscapes. Illustrators and videographers can find opportunities in microstock, too. If you’re a fine-art photographer, try selling through print-on-demand sites such as Imagekind or Fine Art America. You set your price for various sizes, and the sites take a cut for printing, matting, framing and shipping to the customer. Take on microjobs and fast tasks: Many folks pick up pocket money every day by doing quick field work assignments for companies or doing odd jobs for local businesses and

homeowners. Businesses big and small post micro-projects through a free iPhone app called Gigwalk (an Android version is in the works). A winemaker, for example, might need someone in your town to visit a retailer and take a smartphone picture of a product display. Homeowners across the U.S. browse the TaskRabbit website if they need help assembling Ikea furniture or grocery shopping. Local businesses also call on TaskRabbits when they need on-demand workers, delivery drivers or event staff. You do need to ace a video interview and a thorough background check in order to become a TaskRabbit. If your friends look to you for fashion and shopping advice, check into becoming an affiliate for the shopping site Beso. It works the same way as a traditional blog, except you don’t need to think up 500 fresh words every day. You make a few cents every time friends and followers click on links you share within brief posts to social network sites. Tutor and teach: Put your experience as a tutor or teacher to work on the Internet. All you need is a fast broadband connection and a way to video chat. Online tutoring is also a good way for starving college and grad students to put food on the table. Specialists in finance, math and science are

always in high demand. Sites such as Smarthinking or Tutor can help get you started. Can you speak a foreign language fluently or have experience as a language tutor? Hang up a shingle at Verbalplanet. There’s also a keen need to teach English as a second language to executives around the world. Freelance: Freelancing is a time-honored way for writers and graphic designers to make money. It’s not so rare for administrative assistants, accountants, computer programmers and other professionals to also find freelance

opportunities. Look at niche job sites such as Elance, Guru and FreelanceSwitch. If you’re a super-speedy typist, have a good ear and write well, you might be cut out for transcription work. Transcribers provide closed captioning for films and TV shows and written transcripts of academic presentations and focus groups. Visit Tigerfish to get started. Telecommute: You don’t have to be your own boss to work from home. You just need to find telecommuting opportunities. Regular job boards often list telecom-

muting work. Use “telecommuting” as a keyword. Also try Telework Recruiting or FlexJobs, which require small membership fees. The National Telecommuting Institute helps individuals with disabilities find telecommuting opportunities. It offers listings and advice.

WEEK IN REVIEW Williams seeks Transco expansion into NYC

Spartan College acquired by Chicago equity firm Spartan College of Aeronautics and Technology, a private 85-year-old Tulsa technical institution that has trained 90,000 aviation professionals around the world, has been sold to Sterling Partners, a Chicagobased private equity firm, company executives said Tuesday. No purchase price was disclosed by the parties. Sterling Partners Principal Jason Rosenberg and Spartan President and CEO Jeremy Gibson, who will remain in his present positions as administrator and investor, said Sterling will invest in Spartan’s facilities in Tulsa and expand its campuses around the United States. “Spartan fits well into our educational portfolio,” Rosenberg said. “We believe Spartan is a clear leader in the aviation and NDT (non-destructive testing) higher education space,


Olson said. Since 2001, Congress has made almost 5,000 changes to U.S. tax law. That’s an average of more than one a day. As a result, almost 60 percent of filers will pay someone to prepare their tax returns this spring. An additional 30 percent will use commercial software. Without the help, Olson says, most taxpayers would be lost. “On the one hand, taxpayers who honestly seek to comply with the law often make inadvertent errors, causing them to either overpay their tax or become subject to IRS enforcement action for mistaken underpayments,” Olson said. “On the other hand, sophisticated taxpayers often find loopholes that enable them to reduce or eliminate their tax liabilities.” Olson ranks complexity as the most serious tax problem facing taxpayers and the Internal Revenue Service in her annual report to Congress. She urges lawmakers to overhaul the nation’s tax laws, making them simpler, clearer and easier to comply with. Momentum is building in Congress to overhaul the tax code for the first time since 1986. But Washington’s divided government has yet to show it can successfully tackle such a task. President Barack Obama and Republican leaders in Congress say they are onboard, though they have rarely seen eye to eye on tax policy. They struggled mightily just to avoid the year-end fiscal cliff, passing a bill that makes relatively small changes in the nation’s tax laws.

Flintco’s sale to St. Louis construction firm closes Flintco LLC, one of the state’s largest construction outfits, is now owned by St. Louis-based Alberici Corp., the two companies announced Tuesday after closing the deal. Flintco, a American Indianowned business, has 215 employees in the city and has been the contractor on some of the area’s largest recent projects such as One Place downtown, the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Tulsa in Catoosa and work at the Tulsa Zoo. The deal gives Alberici 100 percent ownership of Flintco, whose main office is at 1624 W. 21st St. “This strategic acquisition will provide both companies with a broader geographic platform to better serve existing and new

customers,” Alberici President and CEO Greg Kozicz said in a statement. “We believe there is a strong cultural alignment between the two companies.” Both companies are privately owned. Alberici executives declined to answer further questions about the deal, and financial details were not disclosed. Flintco, with 750 employees nationwide, has offices in Albuquerque, N.M.; Austin, Texas; Memphis, Tenn.; Oklahoma City; and Springdale, Ark. In a statement from Flintco in October, when the merger was first publicly acknowledged, officials said that if the deal moved forward Flintco would keep its name, employees and all its divisions. It is unclear whether Flintco CEO Tom Maxwell will have a role with the new company. — KYLE ARNOLD, World Staff Writer

Top tax breaks for individuals U.S. tax law is filled with so many credits, deductions and exemptions that Americans will be able to reduce their tax bills by about $1.1 trillion this year, according to congressional estimates. The biggest tax breaks, and the amount they will save taxpayers this year, include: • Employer contributions toward workers’ medical insurance premiums and medical care are not taxed: $181 billion • Retirement plan contributions and earnings are not taxed: $165 billion • Mortgage interest deduction: $101 billion • Lower tax rates on long-term capital gains and qualified

Undaunted, the top tax writer in the House says he is determined to pass reform legislation this year. “This report confirms that the code is 10 times the size of the Bible with none of the good news,” said Rep. Dave Camp, chairman of the House and Ways and Means Committee. “Our broken tax code has become a nightmare of loopholes and special interest provisions that create added complexities and costs for hardworking taxpayers and small businesses. “Comprehensive tax reform will make sure everyone is playing by the same rules and help businesses create more jobs and invest in their workers,” Camp said. The general formula for tax reform is widely embraced on Capitol Hill: Eliminate or reduce some tax credits, exemptions and deductions and use the additional revenue to pay for lower income tax rates for everyone. There

dividends: $84 billion • Deduction for state and local taxes: $69 billion • Deduction for charitable contributions: $46 billion • Most Social Security and veterans’ benefits are not taxed: $45 billion • Interest on tax-exempt state and local government bonds is not taxed: $26 billion • When someone dies, the capital gains on his or her investments is not taxed: $24 billion • Income from some life insurance products is not taxed: $23 billion.

Tax-law delays will be short, IRS says The Internal Revenue Service says late changes to federal tax laws should mean only a short delay for most taxpayers to file their 2012 returns. The agency said Tuesday that more than 120 million taxpayers — about 80 percent of all filers

— should be able to start filing their federal returns on Jan. 30. Others will have to wait until late February or March to file because the agency needs time to update and test its systems. Those who will have to wait include people claiming residen-

578,000-square-foot tower and an adjoining parking garage. The deal, outlined in documents filed last week, appears to be a transfer within entities controlled by Prescott Realty Group, which previously managed the property. Formerly known as the Cities Service Building, the structure has been a staple of the Tulsa skyline since 1971, when Cities Service Oil and Gas Corp. built it for its corporate headquarters. The building became the property of Occidental Petroleum Corp. when it purchased Cities Service in 1982. It now houses several tenants such as Atlas Pipeline, the marketing arm Hillcrest Healthcare Systems, Avalon Exploration Inc. and Airgas Inc., which announced recently that it would move 130 jobs into offices there. The building, which displays a Hillcrest penthouse logo, includes a five-story, 120,000-square-foot parking garage on the south end of the property. Prescott bought the building in 1998 for $28.55 million from groups that included Occidental Petroleum, according to Tulsa World archives. — KYLE ARNOLD, World Staff Writer

To avoid angering millions of constituents who rely on popular tax breaks, politicians prefer to endorse tax reform without getting into specifics. Instead, they say they want to reform the tax code by eliminating special interest “loopholes” that help only small but well-connected groups of taxpayers. Obama has repeatedly said he wants to eliminate tax

have felt all my life that good judgment is a critically important skill for any person to have, but especially so for those in leadership positions. Good judgment is such an important attribute that it is often listed first by employers as required qualities of job applicants. We can easily name examples of bad judgment: drug use, lax financial management, questionable choice of friends and so on. And bad judgment usually leads to bad outcomes. In business, the success or failure of the organization hinges on judgments made at all levels. Poor judgment has led to some epic failures over the years. For instance, how about these memorable judgment calls: • “Everything that can be invented has been invented,” said Charles H. Duell, commissioner of the U.S. Patent Office, in 1899. • “Stocks have reached what looks like a permanently high plateau,” said Irving Fisher, professor of economics at Yale University, in 1929. • “I’m just glad it’ll be Clark Gable who’s falling on his face and not Gary Cooper,” said Cooper on his decision not to take the leading role in “Gone With the Wind.” • “We don’t like their sound, and guitar music is on the way out,” said an executive at Decca Recording Co. in rejecting The Beatles in 1962. So what is good judgment? That’s a tough question. Good judgment is the ability to make the best decision possible based on the information you have without being swayed by others or by predetermined ideas. A newsletter from PineCone Research offers a roadmap for improving decision-making skills: What kind of a decisionmaker are you? If you don’t know, you should take a few minutes to contemplate the

breaks for hedge-fund managers and companies that buy corporate jets.

question because once you become aware of how you make (or don’t make) decisions, you will be more apt to make wiser choices in the future. Most people have their own way of handling decision-making. But in a piece called “Decision Making for Giants and Elves” on the Practical Success Solutions website, Malcolm Harvey recommends a four-step process to avoid making poorly thought-out or egobased decisions. Here they are: 1. Make a decision. You have to face that in decisionmaking there are consequences — and then make the decision to face those consequences. 2. Make your own decisions. Don’t go to others to make your decisions for you. Take responsibility for what you decide. 3. Work toward fruition. Once you’ve made your decision, work tirelessly toward the end you would like to see. Focus on detail, and practice patience. 4. Stick with it. Don’t let your doubts torment you. You’ve made your decision; you’ve taken action and responsibility. You will likely make mistakes along the way. When you do, pick yourself up, dust yourself off and reassess the situation.

targeting only narrow provisions won’t raise enough revenue to significantly lower rates or make the law much simpler. “That’s what we’ve been trying to say to taxpayers, that the special interests are us. It’s not just oil and gas or whatever you want to point your finger at,” Olson said. “That’s not where the money is.”

is, however, no consensus on which tax breaks should be scaled back. That’s because Americans like their credits, deductions and exemptions — the provisions that make the tax law so complicated in the first place. Would workers want to pay taxes on employerprovided health benefits or on contributions to their retirement plans? How would homeowners feel about losing the mortgage interest deduction? Those are the three biggest tax breaks in the tax code, according to congressional estimates. Together, they are projected to save taxpayers nearly $450 billion this year. In all, taxpayers will save about $1.1 trillion this year by taking advantage of tax breaks, according to the Joint Committee on Taxation, the official scorekeeper for Congress. That’s almost as much as individuals will pay in income taxes.


Decision-making requires method

» A LOOK BACK AT THE WEEK’S TOP STORIES Williams Partners LP is seeking federal approval for a $182 million expansion of its Transco Pipeline to New York City, the Tulsa-based natural gas infrastructure company announced Monday. The Rockaway Delivery Lateral Project would move about 647,000 dekatherms of natural gas per day to National Grid’s distribution system in the Brooklyn and Queens boroughs of the city, according to reports. Construction on the pipeline expansion, once approved by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, would begin late this year with service expected by the second half of 2014. “The project would create an additional delivery point from the existing Transco system into National Grid’s distribution network, enhancing service reliability and serving growth in the region,” Frank Ferazzi, general manager of the Transco system, said in a statement. “This project is critical to providing the additional natural gas supplies New York City needs.” The 26-inch diameter Rockaway delivery project would include 2.9 miles of offshore and 0.3 miles of onshore pipeline. — ROD WALTON, World Staff Writer

Congress must reauthorize protection act

because they didn’t have enough money to help. We are so thinly staffed anyway,” Smith said. “Imagine the impact if grants are reduced. An estimated 200,000 victims would not receive services if VAWA is not reauthorized.” Without VAWA, rural domestic violence programs almost surely would go by the wayside or be greatly reduced as well as many services in high-demand urban areas such as Tulsa. What’s most alarming is that Congress is well aware of the good — actually life-saving — work that has occurred because VAWA was there over the past 18 years. Nearly no one disputes VAWA’s value.

Julie DelCour Associate Editor


ulsa police last week investigated whether a brutal quadruple homicide case could be linked to domestic violence. Investigators, of course, may uncover an entirely different motive for the shooting deaths of the four women discovered Monday inside an apartment in a high-crime area near 61st Street and Peoria Avenue. What is not subject to change is that last year more than 60 Oklahomans died in domestic violence-related deaths. As bad as that count is, the number would be far worse if not for federal legislation passed 18 years ago that has helped hundreds of thousands of domestic abuse victims. The Violence Against Women Act is credited for dropping domestic-related U.S. homicides by 60 percent. The act, which also protects male victims, has beefed up the criminal justice system’s ability to address domestic and sexual abuse and expanded services for those who have been victims of such crimes. At least 600,000 law enforcement officers, judges and prosecutors have been trained through VAWA funds. Congress, however, failed to reauthorize the act last year after conservative House members resisted adding expanded protections for Native Americans, lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender victims and immigrants, all vulnerable populations. Twice before, in 2000 and again in 2005, Congress proudly and quickly had reauthorized the successful, cost-effective legislation. No such luck this time.

The do-nothing 112th Congress, so preoccupied with averting a fiscal cliff, didn’t compromise on VAWA reauthorization before year’s end, allowing it to expire. Unless something changes, some House members apparently are prepared to allow victims of domestic abuse to go over a physical cliff and into harm’s way. But at least they’ll still have those conservative principles. “By refusing to accept the principle of protecting all victims of domestic violence, House Republican leaders are conveying a belief that rapes of gay people and immigrant women are not ‘legitimate’ rapes, as Rep. Todd Akin, the failed Republican candidate for the

Senate from Missouri, put it so appallingly,” the New York Times said in November. “Is that really what Republicans want to stand for?” That’s a fair question. A lot of us are pretty sure we know the answer. Now, the 113th Congress will have to start over with reauthorization. Who knows what form it will take? In the meantime, at least $11 million in VAWA grants in Oklahoma — including two sizable ones in Tulsa — hang in the balance.

An outrage “It’s maddening,” says Marcia Smith, executive director of the Oklahoma Coalition Against Domestic

Violence and Sexual Assault, a 29-agency group. “What bothers me the most is that the issue holding it up is not about money, it’s the reluctance to expand services. These all are human beings we are talking about,” said Smith, who attributes much of this state’s progress in reducing domestic violence to programs funded by VAWA. Considering that Oklahoma had nearly 25,000 reported cases of domestic abuse last year, the reauthorization of VAWA is no small matter. Without grants, many services will simply vanish, including much of the training for law enforcement and providers as well as federal money spent on victim

They deserve better A

mong the tens of thousands of Oklahomans who could receive much-needed health care if elements of Obamacare were enacted in the state are about 50,000 veterans and their family members who have no health insurance and who also are facing such issues as chronic health problems, little education and unemployment. Oklahoma, in fact, has one of the highest rates of uninsurance among younger veterans at an estimated 13.8 percent, according to a recent national study. Only four other states had higher rates. Oklahoma had the second highest rate of uninsurance for younger veterans’ family members at 11.9 percent. According to the study, about half of these uninsured veterans would qualify for coverage under the Medicaid expansion called for in Obamacare, and another 40 percent might qualify for subsidized coverage through health insurance exchanges envisioned by the law. But of course, as most readers know, Gov. Mary Fallin has declined to go along with the Medicaid expansion called for in the Affordable Care Act. And she along with legislative leaders also have refused to set up the health-insurance exchanges that would help these Oklahomans and many others obtain subsidized coverage. Ironically, the states that have made the least progress toward expanding Medicaid and implementing exchanges also had the highest rates of uninsurance among veterans. Ironic, perhaps, but not surprising. So these men and women, and their family members, who all have sacrificed so much for the safety and well-being of their fellow Americans, will continue to do without the coverage many desperately need, and to suffer the consequences. That’s the thanks they get.

shelter, counseling and other services. “This work is all about safety — first of all safety for victims, then safety for our communities. We have been successful and it would be shame if we go back to the dark ages of the ’70s-90s,” Smith said. If sequestration — those looming, automatic cuts Congress still has not tackled — occur later this year, domestic violence programs will be in desperate straits. Programs funded by federal sources could experience an 8.5 percent across-the-board funding cut, an unthinkable blow to essential services. “Last year, domestic abuse providers in Oklahoma had to turn away 1,400 victims

When Smith started in 1997 with OCADVSA, the state’s umbrella coalition for domestic violence services, Oklahoma ranked third nationally per capita in deaths attributed to domestic violence. “For 10 years we stayed in the top 10, then one year we crept down to 11. Last year we were 17th in the nation. That’s not good but it’s better than where we were, and I attribute that reduction to VAWA.” Federal funds have allowed local and state providers to provide services that would not exist otherwise. VAWA has provided support to raise awareness, train responders and help victims escape, deal with or at least understand the dangers of staying in dangerous situations. Domestic violence is still out there but its effects would be so much worse without VAWA. The reauthorization delay jeopardizes lives. It is yet another outrage by a Congress that is hopelessly addicted to outrage and, I would add, pointedly committed to putting politics over people. Julie DelCour 918-581-8379

‘Obamacare’ would help many veterans, families or the subsidized exchange coverage.

Tragic toll

Doing without In a report issued last May, “Uninsured Veterans and Family Members: Who Are They and Where Do They Live?”, researchers for the Urban Institute exhaustively detailed the plight of the 1.3 million veterans ages 19-64 who have no insurance coverage. The report, funded by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, also looked into the problems faced by the 900,000 younger veterans who have only Department of Veterans Affairs health care, and the 900,000 family members of veterans who also have no health insurance. The VA operates an impressive system of medical centers, clinics and other facilities and is internationally recognized for the care it provides. But for various reasons, many veterans do not or cannot use VA health care services. Eligibility is based on such factors as servicerelated disabilities and income level. VA facilities may simply be too far away from some veterans to be accessible. Even those who do receive VA services could receive additional health-care services through the ACA offerings, according to the study. Veterans in many cases don’t have the benefit of employer-sponsored health insurance because they often are “less connected to the labor force,” in part because of their military histories. The lack of insurance coverage is exacting a serious and disturb-

Researchers estimated there are 26,000 uninsured veterans ages 19-64 in Oklahoma, placing our uninsured rate for that population at 13.8 percent. Four other states — Louisiana, Oregon, Idaho and Montana — had higher rates, ranging between 14.1 percent and 17.3 percent. The number of younger veterans’ family members without insurance was estimated at 23,000, for an uninsured rate of 11.9 percent — the second highest in the country. The researchers studied the activities of each state with regard to establishing exchanges and expanding Medicaid and found “higher uninsurance rates among Veteran Curtis Randall at the Claremore veterans center in Claremore in veterans and their family mem2009. JAMES GIBBARD/Tulsa World file bers in states that have taken only limited steps toward implmenting ing toll: The report noted, citing a to be married than veterans with exchanges under the ACA.” 2010 study, that more than one in insurance.

Surely Oklahomans don’t realize how badly Fallin’s actions have hurt many of us. — Wanda Jo Stapleton, Oklahoma City


Gov. Mary Fallin’s ruthless refusal to expand Medicaid coverage to low-income Oklahomans is typical of the way her past political actions have harmed Oklahomans. For example, in 2007 Fallin, when she was in Congress, voted against raising the minimum wage above $5.15 per hour, where it had been for 10 years. Then, she opposed House Resolution 4, which gave Medicare authority to negotiate with drug manufacturers for lower prescription drug prices. In other words, she voted to turn pricing of our prescription drugs over to pharmaceutical companies and order Medicare to pay whatever was asked. For those advocating reduction of Medicare costs, here’s the place to start. She also said no to expanding the state Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) for 55,000 lowincome children in Oklahoma and 4 million nationwide. She voted against the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act, the first bill that President Obama signed into law. Ledbetter was a hard worker who learned years later that she had lost more than $200,000 in salary, and even more in pension and Social Security benefits because she had been paid much less than her male co-workers doing exactly the same work. Finally, Fallin signed an emergency rule that gives insurance companies a pass on providing individual health insurance coverage for newborns to one-year-olds. Surely Oklahomans don’t realize how badly Fallin’s actions have hurt many of us. Wanda Jo Stapleton, Oklahoma City Editor’s note: Stapleton is a former state representative, 1986-1996.

‘Dual duty’ Some state legislators have the idea that teachers should be armed to protect schools, and that they should accept this “dual responsibility.” I have a better idea. Since our legislators are paid a full-time salary for working about 3½ months a year, they have the months of August to December free from the legislative session. They should get themselves certified to carry firearms and volunteer to station themselves at a school in their district and assume that “dual responsibility” as well. After all, they have half the school year completely free of legislative duties and could certainly help with security. They could actually put their money where their mouths are by doing something themselves instead of asking others to do more and more. Maybe if they spent less time talking to various lobbyists, they could find the time to make themselves more useful, certainly helping protect our schools would be a worthwhile cause. An alternate plan would be to cut legislators’ salaries in half and give our teachers substantial raises, and hire some of our wonderful off-duty police officers to protect our children. Perhaps our public schools could be funded at a higher level than 49th in the country, a ranking no Oklahoma legislator would accept if it were in football. If the Legislature spent more time working on how to properly fund our schools rather than giving

What about here? World attention recently has been focused on the death of a rape victim in India, yet in our own country, little attention is being given to a bill protecting women. This bill has been held up in Congress and it is evidently the provision in the Senate version allowing Native American tribal authorities to have jurisdiction over non-Indians that Republicans object to, even though 10 House Republicans urged support of that version. These men’s crimes currently “are under federal” jurisdiction, subject to the U.S. Attorney’s office, far from the reservation, to investigate and charge. Later, President Obama gave his support for the bill because it would help “bring to justice anyone — Indian or non-Indian who hurts a woman.” That goal is far from being realized now. Non-Indian men commit an estimated 80 percent of rapes of Indian women, and according to the 2010 report by the General Accountability Office, U.S. attorneys “declined to prosecute 46 percent of assaults and 67 percent of sexual abuse and related matters.” All people who want rapists charged and prosecuted should support this law, especially people of Native American descent. Justice should be for everyone, no matter the gender or race. Edward V. Harris, Hugo

Are we there? The Second Amendment is really not that hard to understand. From Wikipedia: “In colonial era Anglo-American usage, militia service was distinguished from military service in that the latter was normally a commitment for a fixed period of time of at least a year, for a salary, whereas militia was only to meet a threat, or prepare to meet a threat, for periods of time expected to be short. Militia persons were normally expected to provide their

own weapons, equipment, or supplies, although they may later be compensated for losses or expenditures.” From this definition, the U.S. National Guard is not a militia since Guardsmen are not required to provide any item of uniform or equipment, they enlist for fixed terms, belong to formal units and are paid. An important point here is that, in order to serve in a militia unit, one must provide one’s own weapons. Also note, in order to be an effective fighting force in today’s world, one must have grenades, rocketpropelled weapons and, yes, assault weapons with plenty of ammunition in, yes, high-capacity magazines. To lend further insight to the meaning of the Second Amendment I quote Thomas Jefferson, “No free man shall ever be debarred the use of arms. The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government.” Are we there yet? Thomas N. Treue, McAlester

Needs more information I want to thank outgoing Tulsa Metro Chamber chairman Becky Frank for volunteering her service. Regarding her interview in the Jan. 4 business section of the Tulsa World, I would have to respectfully disagree with her on her statement about Vision2: “We need to do something like the deal-closing fund.” This was the main reason I voted against the Vision2 economic development initiative. In my view, to give the Tulsa Metro Chamber $52 million would be irresponsible without an oversight committee made up of qualified, independent and impartial members with the view of making the right decisions for all the citizens of Tulsa County. If my memory is correct, the previous oversight committee was to be made up of mayors or county commissioners of Tulsa County — all government employees. This is literally giving money to the “fox guarding the hen house” — a complete conflict of interest. This would have to change before I will vote for

any economic development initiative. We need a majority of impartial oversight committee members other than present or retired government employees. Also, it would be nice if the Tulsa Metro Chamber would give us a recent real-life example where the chamber lost out to another city because it did not have a deal-closing fund. I would want detailed facts that would help me understand why the company decided not to locate in Tulsa County, then I might change my vote. Educate the citizens on why you need this fund. Phil Marshall, Tulsa

Too bad It’s too bad that the airwaves are jammed with the rantings of leftwing politicians and their robotic, politically correct masses who do more harm than good by advocating gun control as the cure-all for violence, while conveniently avoiding the real issues that underlie these senseless acts of violence that polarize our society. The president seems to have the will to trample the rights of 60 million law-abiding gun owners, but apparently not the will to challenge his support base in Hollywood, or to advocate funding for identifying and treating mental illness. If all contributing causal relationships are objectively considered, some existing rights are going to have to be compromised. Will it be freedom of speech in the form of controlling violence in films, games and music? Will we further restrict gun ownership that will target only the 99.9 percent of gun owners who own and use firearms legally? Will we attempt to identify, profile and treat the mentally ill among us who may pose the greater risk to society? Laws have power only to those who choose to obey them. Gun control is simply not the cause, nor the solution, to the problems of violence in America. In virtually all mass killings the perpetrator knows in advance they will lose their own life in the process. How is such a mindset, to destroy and be

For the first time in my adult life, I am disappointed in my country. Just what low levels have we stooped to in America when a hardearned paycheck is treated like a crime punishable by over taxation, success is a status worthy of suspicion, and the wealthy are considered guilty of greed without a chance to prove their innocence? At the same time, downright laziness is rewarded with welfare entitlements as if it were a paycheck to be proud of. We shouldn’t continue to punish hard work and success in America because what goes around comes around. The lazy and envious want to bite the hand that feeds them but in their blissful ignorance will not realize they might soon be biting their own hand off. Jan Smith, Broken Arrow

Real tax reform Now that people have seen their taxes go up (regardless of promises made, they went up) can we start talking about real tax reform? I don’t know about you but I’m tired of Washington and indeed the state having its hands in my pocket before I even get to see my paycheck. What if we had to pay taxes out of our own pocket every time we got paid? How quickly do you think people would get mad and demand change? Withholding is by design to “take the pain away” because if we had to do it ourselves, we’d not let it stand. So why do we let it stand now? Any real resolution to our problems will put power in the hands of the people when it comes to their tax bill. Anything that lets the income tax remain and leaves the tyrannical IRS intact is nothing short of pointless. The FairTax is the only plan that puts power squarely back in the hands of the people, fully funds all the programs that so badly need fixing yet allows the economy to grow and puts more money back in the pockets of everyday Americans who so desperately need it. What are you waiting for America? Please speak up, make your voices heard and demand a real solution, not more politics. Tony Leach, Oklahoma City

Let us mourn the death of depth in America BY RACHEL MARSDEN It’s very likely that kids will find this column to be, like, totally stupid, and will conclude that they can write one sooooo much better. They will declare this on their Twitter feed, sandwiched between the hundreds of photos of themselves making that pursed-lips “duck face,” then wait for the “friends” they’ve never met in person to tell them how hot they look. That’s because compared with 30 years ago, more American students think they’re above average in writing, leadership, intelligence, drive and social skills, according to a BBC analysis of college freshmen data by psychologist Jean Twenge. A separate study Twenge published found that student narcissism increased from 18 percent to 34 percent between 1994 and 2008, with a significant spike from 2006 to 2009. That date range just happens to coincide with the rise of social media outlets like Facebook and Twitter. Technology now makes it pos-

sible for people to live out their delusions in all their grandeur. Did you know that it’s possible to actually purchase Facebook “friends” and “likes,” and that people do this to make themselves appear more popular and attractive? So rather than spending $30 treating a reallife friend to the movies — where you actually might have to do yucky things like interact, converse and perhaps even risk some personal friction — you could use that cash to buy yourself some new social media “friends” whose job is to “like” every brain dropping you post online.

Messiness Why deal with the messiness and complications of friendship with real human beings when you can just hire unidirectional admiration and unconditional affection from invisible entities in different time zones? At what point in one’s pursuit of fake adulation does a person actually start to enjoy the taste of his own

bathwater? Does anyone ever drain that filthy bath and explain that 90 percent of their 50,000 Twitter followers, from which they derive a fake sense of popularity, are fake spam accounts? Are they ever asked by someone who truly cares about them what they’ve done lately with their lives to generate any genuine substance of which they can be proud? Of course not, because even these unpaid “friends” are too busy choosing which Instagram filter best turns their own flaws into art in the 250th photo of themselves trying to look rich, popular, fun or sexy. They may not like where they are in life, but that hardly matters when what really counts is what others think of them. If you get up and don’t like what you see in the mirror, that’s OK, because 250 fake “friends” will love it. It’s a castle of self-esteem perched atop a foundation of quicksand. But I’m not going to just trash the kids here. It’s really society’s fault. Just look at the ample evidence of how our collective standards have

slipped. We’ve sent TV networks a strong message that watching the Kardashians sit around complaining about each other is compelling — because some people would rather watch this nonsense than shut it off and go create some excitement of their own.

Manna from heaven Kids see how Kim Kardashian and others have gotten rich and famous by exposing their lives on TV, and they try to emulate that trajectory. They come away with the message that money and fame come first, then opportunities just fall from the sky. What’s sad is that they are, in essence, correct. The rich and famous used to have actual talent as a foundation. The ones who happened to be the most physically appealing may have received a boost from their looks, but their appearance certainly wasn’t the entire foundation of their success. That’s why those people will remain timeless legends — for their

contributions — whereas many of the “stars” of today will be forgotten by the time the next starlet sex tape conveniently leaks out online. The spike in narcissism among college freshmen is a natural result of increased entitlement to shortcuts. Want to be an entrepreneur? “Where’s my venture capital?” you ask. Want to be fit and slim? “Where’s my magic pill?” Want employment right out of college? “Where’s my $250,000 annual salary?” Looking like you’re great has replaced true greatness. Being an empty suit is all right if the suit is Armani. And what’s most concerning is that there are increasingly fewer people who can tell the difference between the real deal and a cheap knockoff — perhaps because they can’t recognize what they themselves don’t know.

What is real and what is reality? LOS ANGELES — The 30th president of the United States, who was not such a bad guy, sometimes seems to be remembered only for a single quote: “The business of America is business.” If Calvin Coolidge of Vermont were alive and awake now — he was noted for taking long naps — he might want to change that to, “The business of America is show business.” After all, if he read the news last Monday, he would see that both the Los Angeles Times and The New York Times had major stories analyzing the impact of two new films moving, or trying to move, the national debate on critical issues. I mean, who would have thought that the top of the front page of the Los Angeles paper would be: “Movie Renews Pressure on CIA. “The agency faces fresh questions about torture sparked by ‘Zero Dark Thirty.’” That film, which isn’t even in most theaters yet, is a Page One topic because some critics believe it is trying to send the message that the United States fights terrorism with torture. “Torture works” is a motto denied by many with less reach than the cinema. What restarted this dialogue (some of it bogus) are the opening scenes of “Zero Dark Thirty,” showing American soldiers torturing Afghans and Pakistanis. The film then goes on to tell, in semi-documentary style, the story of our Central Intelligence Agency tracking down and killing Osama bin Laden,

The second film, “Promised Land,” which opened last weekend, was featured by the New York Times under the headline: “Drilling Far From Imminent, but Debate Roils a Region.” The story there is the still relatively subdued controversy over energy companies wanting to use a technique called “fracking” to pump water and chemicals deep into the earth to fracture rock formations and release natural gas to the surface. The drillers argue that fracking will not only solve many of the country’s energy problems, but also will bring great prosperity to much of the American landscape. Opponents, environmentalists — both national and home-grown — say the process will, like strip-mining, destroy the landscape.

Ton of money States are rewriting their marijuana laws because that’s what makes sense. Regulate it, tax it, and make a ton of money from it. Another benefit of decriminalization is liberating overworked police and prosecutors, whose talents are being misspent on dumb, dead-end pot cases — 50 plants in a grow house tended by some hapless bozo who doesn’t even know where the seeds came from. Most Americans would prefer to see drug agents shutting down meth labs and pill mills, which actually kill people. Like it or not, marijuana is so deeply imbedded in our culture that it will never go away. You can find it on Wall Street, Main Street or K Street, on any college campus or military base. Some drug experts fear that more lenient laws will increase consumption and abuse. Others believe a lawful marketplace will prove safer. Regardless, the saturation level of reefer is already high. In 2011, according to FBI statistics, a marijuana-related arrest occurred every 42 seconds in the United States. That’s how abundant the stuff is. Some of those who got busted were career criminals who happened to be caught with a joint in their pockets, but many were casual users or small-time sellers. Those who get prosecuted on minor pot charges disproportionately tend to be Hispanics and African- Americans, not the white college kids who are toking up a storm. Cannabis laws have always been selectively enforced, and lots of people are sitting in jail who shouldn’t be there. The current useless Congress is unlikely to tackle marijuana reform, but the Justice Department could do all taxpayers a favor by letting each state decide for itself. Making pot legally available to adults will require caution. Colorado and Washington are wrestling with the logistics of sales and supervision. Tough penalties are planned for driving while stoned, or providing the drug to minors.

‘Promised Land’

The war on marijuana is going up in smoke, and it’s about time. There is no bigger waste of money and resources in all law enforcement. Failure is too polite a description for the long campaign to eliminate the pot trade in the United States. A colossal flop is what it is. After four decades and billions spent, marijuana is easier to get, and more potent, than ever. More than 40 percent of all Americans over 12 have tried it, and at least 30 million people smoke it every year. The most recent national drug survey found that 18.1 million Americans had used it during the previous month. Pot is now medically dispensed in 18 states and Washington, D.C. It’s the largest cash crop in the nation’s largest agricultural state, California. A legitimate pain reliever for cancer victims, “medicinal” marijuana is now available for an assortment of other symptoms, some of them conveniently vague and impossible to discount. It’s not terribly hard to get a prescription. In November, voters in Colorado and Washington dropped the pretense and approved the adult recreational use of weed. Other states will follow in coming years. Absurdly, the government still classifies pot as a Schedule I Controlled Substance, the same as heroin and cocaine. Federal law prohibits medical marijuana use, and the Obama administration has taken action against dispensaries in California. It’s a lost cause, and an expensive one. Any true fiscal conservative should be outraged by the waste and futility.
