High school football mid-season roundtable: Who will run the table?
By Scott Wright and Jacob Unruh Staff Writers | Oct 4, 2015At the halfway point of the high school football regular season, it's time to look ahead at what could await in the second half. In Sunday's editions, The Oklahoman's high school football writers, Scott Wright and Jacob Unruh, took a look back at the first half. Now, they'll offer projections on a few questions regarding the remainder of the season: Which unbeaten team is most likely to remain undefeated and win a state championship? Wright: I really want to say Jenks in Class 6A-I, considering the Trojans defeated Tulsa Union by 18 in their first meeting. But the regular-season loser in that series often flips the script if they get a title game rematch. So I'll take Wagoner to roll through Class 4A and finish with the gold ball. Last week's 14-7 scare against Cascia Hall might be as close as anyone gets to the Bulldogs until the title game. Unruh: Alex looks unstoppable in Class B one year after it ran the table for the state championship. The defense has allowed just 14 points this season — no more than a touchdown in a game — and the offense has not scored below 44 yet. There just doesn't seem to be much Class B teams can do to slow down the Longhorns. Which team will have the biggest second-half turnaround? Wright: At 2-3, Collinsville could very well win out to go into the 5A playoffs, but the team I expect to see the biggest turnaround from is Oklahoma Christian. The Saints started 0-4 before getting their first win Friday night. They're incredibly young, but the schedule is favorable over the next few weeks, giving them a chance to grow up. It's possible OCS could be 5-4 going into a Week 10 showdown with Luther that could have home-field advantage in the playoffs on the line. Unruh: For the second straight season, Clinton is off to a 1-4 start under coach Phil Koons. Last season, the Red Tornadoes turned that around and even won a first-round playoff game. The schedule sets up the same way for Clinton, which will be favored in its next three games before playing Woodward and Elk City. Which district will have the most exciting playoff race? Wright: Both west districts in Class 5A will be entertaining, and Class B District 1 is going to get wild with Seiling, Turpin, Pioneer, Laverne, Pond Creek-Hunter and a couple others battling for four spots. But keep an eye on 3A-2, where Bethany, John Marshall and Meeker have big wins under their belt. Yet Blanchard and Douglass — each 0-1 in district play — aren't going away anytime soon. Unruh: District 5A-1 has little clarity at this point, and a good team is likely going to miss out on the postseason. Defending state champion Lawton MacArthur has control with a 2-0 start following a narrow win over Altus, but has yet to play other district title contenders Ardmore, Duncan or Del City. Duncan losing to Del City is a big loss for the Demons considering they will likely be underdogs against the remaining contenders. But in this district anything is possible.

By The Associated Press, Associated Press | Oct 1, 2015The Bloomington Herald-Times. September 24, 2015 Entrepreneurship: Who is next? The annual Cook Institute for Entrepreneurship shines a light annually on the possibilities for those who follow their own idea down a path to success. Accomplished speakers share their experiences and leave those who hear them realizing that risk can often result in great reward. Tuesday's speaker was Scott Dorsey, who started the company ExactTarget in Indianapolis with two other guys and the help of investments from his family and friends. Original financing in 2000 was about $200,000. In 2013, the company salesforce.com bought the firm for about $2.7 billion. The company has been integrated into a new division that's been renamed Salesforce Marketing Cloud. Dorsey told the crowd that keys to starting a company are perseverance and having strong enthusiasm for the business idea. Those were instrumental for the Cooks, Bill and Gayle, for whom the Cook Institute is named. They launched their medical device company from a small apartment on the east side of Bloomington into an international group of companies headquartered on the city's west side. This event always highlights what can happen to someone with an idea and the drive to see it through. Who's next? ___ The Fort Wayne Journal Gazette. September 23, 2015. Still work to do. The good news is very good indeed. The unemployment rate has improved throughout northeastern Indiana. In the 10-county area monitored by IPFW's Community Research Institute, the jobless rate has dropped to 4 percent. "That's the lowest rate since May 2001," said Ellen Cutter, the institute's director. August statistics released by the Indiana Department of Workforce Development show that within the three-county Fort Wayne metropolitan statistical area, the jobless rate was slightly higher - 4.1 percent - and Allen County's rate was 4.2. But all of those rates are lower than for Indiana as a whole (4.4 percent) and for the nation (5.2 percent). What does that mean for our region? "The economy is moving, there are a lot of opportunities," Cutter said. "People can find employment in greater numbers. But businesses are probably starting to feel the squeeze." Expanding businesses will be challenged to find enough skilled and trained workers. That will increase efforts to attract new workers to the area and to lure back people who for whatever reason have dropped out of the workforce. That includes some who gave up because they couldn't find work and some who hold part-time jobs but really want full-time employment. Thus, "the low unemployment most likely will result in some pressure to raise wages." That, in turn, may provide an answer to the region's greatest economic challenge - wages that in past years have dragged along below state and national averages. The 10-county region has added 3,907 jobs since August 2014. And recent growth wasn't in the retail sector, where wages tend to be lower. In comparison with the nation as a whole, northeast Indiana is "outperforming in manufacturing job growth. Also in logistics and transportation and in warehousing and wholesale trade," Cutter said. Almost half the new jobs - 1,748 - were in manufacturing. That kind of quiet, steady growth is just what the region needs to overcome years of stagnation. None of this good news, of course, invalidates the concerns quantified last fall in a report sponsored by the Indiana Association of United Ways. The ALICE (Asset Limited, Income Constrained and Employed) Report showed that even many families with full-time "breadwinners" have struggled to cope. More than a third of Allen County residents have had difficulty affording their basic needs. And though northeast Indiana's total number of jobs has grown by more than 1 percent during the past year, the state and national job-growth rates were closer to 2 percent. So, the challenge is to create still more jobs, jobs that in turn will raise the wage base, and that in turn will lift more families past the point of mere survival into real economic security. ____ The South Bend Tribune. September 23, 2015. A mixed legacy for South Bend's police chief. Ron Teachman stepped into a difficult job, at a difficult time, when he took over as South Bend's police chief in January 2013. The department and city were still embroiled in the controversy over the ouster of the ex-chief, Darryl Boykins, and the questions surrounding a federal wiretap investigation and secretly recorded tapes. Teachman also faced critics, some outright hostile, who were angry about Mayor Pete Buttigieg's decision to bring in an outsider to run the police department, as opposed to promoting a longtime veteran. And it didn't help that only a few months after arriving in South Bend, Teachman faced accusations that he didn't back up an officer who was trying to break up a fight at the Martin Luther King Center, touching off an investigation by state police. A rocky start to the new job, to be sure. But from there, Teachman launched into a long list of changes and reforms for the department, bringing a more academic and high-tech approach to policing. He spoke often about looking far and wide for best practices in policing that South Bend could adopt. He championed "Operation Ceasefire," a strategy for targeting gun violence and, more importantly, the culprits most responsible for that violence. He installed a license plate reader to help catch people with warrants. And he brought in the ShotSpotter system to help quickly pinpoint the locations of gunfire. He took the heroin epidemic seriously and had officers trained on how to administer a drug to treat overdoses. He talked openly about the need for better outreach and communication with residents. For critics, Teachman never shook the "outsider" label, and they often harped about his management style and what they perceived as morale issues in the department. And for full disclosure, Teachman's relationship with local media outlets, including The Tribune, was rocky at best — a reluctance to cooperate with reporters often seemed to border on disdain, with no explanation given as to what fueled that sentiment. On his way out, Teachman has given his critics new fodder: He's taking a job with ShotSpotter, the very company he brought to South Bend, on a $300,000 contract. He says he received no personal gain from the company, and the mayor says he has no concerns. But does it really pass the smell test? It's fair to say that it should at least raise eyebrows. Buttigieg now hands the department off to Scott Ruszkowski — the type of longtime insider that critics wanted two years ago. A third-generation cop, Ruszkowski has deep ties to the community and widespread respect, and his appointment has already drawn praise from several corners. The mayor seems to have signaled that, after the changes brought by an outsider, it's time for a veteran whose profile earns him immediate respect from the rank-and-file and the community. As for Teachman's tenure, the same can be said for him that can be said of many public officials: He leaves behind a mixed legacy — some bad, some good. But for all the controversies and complaints, and many were part of the job of police chief, he does leave behind a force that is more forward-thinking. Many of his initiatives will have lasting impact. He certainly packed a lot into two years and nine months. He leaves the department with someone who comes into the job with a level of goodwill and support that Teachman certainly would have benefited from early in his tenure. It's time for a new chief and a new approach, building off Teachman's initiatives, but maybe also avoiding some of the missteps. ___ The Indianapolis Star. September 25, 2015 Motherly advice for Gov. Pence's drug task force. They are experts. Reluctant experts who have been forced to see the horrors of Indiana's heroin and opioid epidemic from up close. They're parents of young men and women whose lives have been ripped apart by drugs. They've lived through their children's incarcerations and withdrawals, relapses and hospitalizations, broken promises and overdoes, and in some cases through their funerals. It's a different kind of expertise, one earned through years of pain. But they are experts, nonetheless, and they are at the top of the list of people the governor's new drug abuse task force should turn to for true insight. Four of these parents, all moms, spent two hours with me on a recent Thursday evening, eager — desperate even — to tell me what they've learned during years of watching their children battle fierce dependencies. They said they were glad I was listening but that they hoped the governor's task force would listen, too. "These are sick people that need our help," an Indianapolis mom, Kourtnaye Sturgeon, said. "They need our help, and the truth is we as a state are doing the polar opposite of what they need. I hope the people on the task force understand that." The mothers I met with have been through personal hells, yet they optimistically fight on. They've seen their children lose everything to addiction and, so, they have worked to save other families from that same fate. They have memories of happy and bright children — memories that sometimes no longer seem real. The women aren't doctors or addiction specialists; they are hair stylists and small-business owners and marketers. But they've seen just about everything you can see about this crisis. They've seen its raw ugliness and the awful choices it forces upon a parent. They've seen what heroin does to a person, and they've almost screamed at a system that is not equipped to handle a crisis of this magnitude. With these backgrounds, with this baggage, these moms can offer two essential things to the public debate. First is a dose of reality. Second is a tour of the roadblocks standing in the way of successful recoveries. The reality check comes in the stories the women share. Stories about overdoses and homelessness, about a son selling his body for drugs, and a daughter imprisoned for stealing to support her habit. Stories of formerly happy children turned into broken adults, and of parental shame that eventually settles into sadness. Theresa Short, 56, told me about once reporting her son's heroin use to his probation officer. She knew that call could send him to prison but couldn't think of how else to save him from the fatal overdose that seemed to be on its way — the type of overdose that claimed her stepson three years ago. Her son, a former high-school wrestler, has relapsed so many times that she is now "scared to death because he gets off parole in October," and then he will no longer be subjected to court-ordered drug testing. That type of fear is why she turned in her own son. Sturgeon, 53, wiped away tears as she recalled kicking her son, now 24 and struggling in recovery, out of her house several years ago. That was hard, she said, because it meant she would lose what little control she had. But too many lines had been crossed, too many lies had been told. She told me about the time he looked at her and couldn't promise to stay clean. "I know why you're asking," he said, "but I hope you know that the last thing I want to do is use." Michelle Crane, 49, recalled driving her son, amid violently painful withdraw symptoms, to his drug dealer. She had a look on her face that said, don't judge me unless you've been there, and I understood. "That was not my child," she said. "He was out of his mind, and unless you're going through it you can't explain the horror to anyone." Her son is 28 and, after numerous attempts at recovery, is now serving the last days of a prison sentence stemming from a petty crime. Once, Crane said, she spent a Mother's Day searching the city for him. Another time, she found him in a parking lot on 38th Street, a mix of meth and heroin in his system, sores so extensive on his face that she didn't recognized him. "The heartache addiction causes a family is indescribable," she said. As the others talked, Justin Phillips mainly listened. She didn't have to say much; we've spent hours in the past talking about her late son, Aaron Sims. He had a great smile and a sharp mind, and he played football at Lawrence North High School. But heroin addiction overwhelmed him and he died of an overdose in 2013 at the age of 20. That is the reality check. And here is the message for the task force and other state policymakers who are taking a closer look at the addiction crisis. It's simple: "The current system is just making the problem worse," Short said. The epidemic has too often been treated as a criminal justice issue and not a health crisis, she said. Treatment centers are far too limited and far too costly, particularly for those without insurance. Jails and prisons lack the programs to effectively help inmates deal with their addictions, and they don't come close to adequately preparing them for life on the outside. Over and over, the moms talked about the lack of opportunities for those who have collected rap sheets while in the grip of addiction. As much as anything, this was on their minds. It's so basic, they said, but so tied to a troubled person's chance of turning his or her life around. The task force, they argued, should focus closely on job training and work programs for those with felony records, and for those whose addictions will continue to challenge them for years. "Nobody wants to hire them, even when they are clean," Short said. "They cannot find a job and that only makes their lack of self-worth worse." Sturgeon talked about the challenge of finding affordable treatment programs and said that the task force needs to understand the urgency of the situation. Those trying to overcome addiction to heroin can't be asked to wait months, weeks or even days. "When they are receptive to that help, there is a very short window," she said. "If you can't get them into a facility right away you can easily lose them." They know. They've seen it. The women also gave several pragmatic suggestions: They said Indiana needs a needle-exchange program. They urged the state to study with skepticism the for-profit methadone clinic industry. They almost begged for more detox centers. They said the probation system should be not only about enforcement but also about partnering with those fighting addiction. And they said Indiana must better help families navigate the complex network of recovery programs and centers, providing clear data focused on the results and outcomes that different programs produce. "It's so hard to determine who is honest and who is not," Sturgeon said. As I've written about this crisis in the past couple of years, I've heard from many people who argue that a person who sticks a needle in his arm is responsible for his own problems. What that argument misses is that these are real people who shouldn't be tossed aside. And even if you think they should be, tackling this crisis more effectively will help us all. Each story of addiction has collateral damage that spreads immense pain and heavy costs through families and communities. There are no easy answers. There is no quick fix. But there are experts who can offer wise counsel. They've lived through the pain, frustation and fear of this epidemic. ___

High school football: Luther defense clamps down, Lions roll past CHA
By Richard Tortorelli, For The Oklahoman | Sep 25, 2015DEL CITY — Maurice Wright has grabbed headlines early in the season for Luther, but Friday night his teammates stole the show. The Lions defense put the clamps on Christian Heritage, quarterback Chad Pridemore hooked up with receiver Ashton Hutton often and Luther freshman running back Chabon Anderson led the team in rushing. Those performances added up to a 50-13 Luther romp past Christian Heritage at Crusader Field to put Luther at 4-0 on the season and 1-0 within the district. Luther, ranked seventh in Class 2A, has put together an average score this season of 50.5-22. “The kids were definitely prepared well,” Luther coach Greg Meek said. “They understood the urgency of opening up district play. You're fighting for your playoff lives starting this week. They had a great week of practice.” Luther raced to a 14-0 first-quarter lead. Luther scored first as Brandon Sweeden caught an 11-yard scoring strike by Chad Pridemore. The Lions took advantage of a short field set up by their defense, moving 44 yards in five plays. Hutton caught the two-point conversion. Wright reached the end zone with an 8-yard touchdown grab for Luther's second touchdown. Meanwhile, Luther had already sacked CHA's Camden Cargill three times and broken up one of his passes. Luther added a couple of passes batted down at the line of scrimmage and two fumbles recovered throughout the night. “We talked defensively before the game about winning first and third downs,” Meek said. “Joseph Lemieux is an explosive player, a big-play type of guy who can take one to the house on you. We talked to our kids about lessening his impact on the game. That let us pressure the quarterback tonight.” Lemieux scored on a 7-yard touchdown pass from Cargill to cut Luther's lead to 14-6 early in the second quarter. Luther's pedal-to-the-metal offense went to work afterward. Hutton scored on an 18-yard touchdown strike later in the second quarter, plus on a 53-yard pass early in the third quarter on Luther's first possession of the second half. Wright bolted for a 28-yard touchdown. Anderson ran for two touchdowns, including a 46-yard sprint to put Luther ahead 50-6 with 6:47 left in the game. Chad Pridemore piloted Luther's fastbreak offense well, completing 17 of 24 passes for 264 yards and four touchdowns. Hutton snared seven catches for 131 yards, while Anderson rushed for 78 yards on seven carries. Not to be outdone, Wright added 72 yards on 11 carries. “Chad's a kid who's played a lot of ball for us,” Meek said of his quarterback. “He's got almost 25 starts underneath his belt going back to his freshman year. He did a great job of being a calming force for our offense early in the game. We had a turnover, but I thought our kids did a good job of responding to adversity. He's definitely grown up a lot this year. "The guys see him as a leader out there. He stepped up and made some big throws for us tonight. Our pass protection was great, and that let Chad settle down and make some big-time throws. He made some big-time third-down throws that kept the chains moving tonight.” Lemieux finished with 117 yards rushing on 19 attempts and 35 yards receiving for CHA.

High school football: Maurice Wright's special night scores big win for Luther
BY SCOTT WRIGHT | Sep 21, 2015LUTHER — It doesn't matter what part of the game you're watching, or which team has the ball, you'll probably see Luther's Maurice Wright Jr. on the field. And if you were watching last Friday night, you probably saw him running past people. The 6-foot-1, 195-pound senior plays a variety of positions for the Class 2A No. 7 Lions — safety, linebacker, kick returner and wide receiver among them. But on Friday, running back was his specialty. Wright rushed for 317 yards on 26 carries, caught five passes for 45 yards and scored five total touchdowns in Luther's 60-48 win at Cashion. The effort earned Wright The Oklahoman's staff choice as the metro-area High School Football Player of the Week, not just for his performance, but for what the win meant for his team. It wasn't a district victory, but it was important for the Lions as a sign of the direction their program is going under coach Shawn Meek. Last year, Cashion beat Luther by 16 points, but this year's Luther squad is different. The Lions (3-0) are averaging 52.6 points per game heading into their Class 2A District 2 opener at Christian Heritage on Friday. Wright sees a strengthened attitude from his team. “We're all working hard every day,” he said. “Everybody has a passion for playing. Everybody's bought in and wants to play. We're a team.” The district schedule will give Luther a chance to prove its worth, with games against perennially strong programs such as Millwood and Oklahoma Christian. But Wright says the team is ready for the challenge. Their conversations center around a Class 2A championship. “We want the ‘ship,” he said. “That's what we want. All the dudes that are seniors, that's all we talk about. We want it. We're gonna work for it, and we're gonna get it.”

High school football: Vote for the Fans' Choice Player of the Week on NewsOK.com
FROM STAFF REPORTS | Sep 19, 2015The third week of the season featured some impressive statistical performances around the Oklahoma City area, including a trio of 300-yard rushers, and fans can now voice their opinion on who had the best performance. The weekly Fans' Choice Player of the Week poll is live online at NewsOK.com/Varsity. Pick one of the selections from the poll below, or write in your own candidate in the comments section, where you can tell us why your choice deserves Player of the Week honors. Voting ends at 4 p.m. Tuesday and the results of the poll will appear in Wednesday's print editions. Here are the candidates: Chris Friday, Douglass: The junior running back had a banner night in a 38-0 shutout of Star Spencer. He rushed for a school-record 328 yards and five touchdowns on 22 carries. Braden Hudson, Putnam City: The Pirates quarterback finished 13 of 21 for 266 yards and three touchdowns as Putnam City erupted for 35 unanswered points in the second half for a 49-17 win over rival Putnam West. Hudson also had an interception on defense. Lashay Johnson, Coyle: Offense, defense or special teams, it didn't matter to Johnson, who scored a touchdown on all three units. He returned a punt 62 yards, had a 24-yard run and took an interception 85 yards for his third score in a 48-0 win over Welch. Grant Martin, Harrah: Last year's Little All-City Offensive Player of the Year broke loose for 328 yards and six touchdowns on 23 carries in a 55-14 win over Perkins. Diego Richards, Carl Albert: Richards was the true definition of a return specialist in Carl Albert's 59-34 win over Duncan. He returned three kicks for scores — a 95-yard kick return and two punts of 60 and 44 yards — while also rushing for a 66-yard score. Jacob Williams, Midwest City: Williams had three of Midwest City's five interceptions against Del City quarterback and Oregon commit Terry Wilson. The Bombers won the game 37-14 and forced six turnovers by Wilson. Maurice Wright, Luther: The second of the running backs to run for more than 300 yards on the poll, Wright did it against Class A state runner-up Cashion in a 60-48 shootout. Wright finished with 317 yards and five TDs on 26 carries. He also caught five passes for 45 yards.

High school football: Tevin McDaniel leads Heritage Hall in 60-21 rout of Casady
BY MURRAY EVANS, For The Oklahoman | Sep 3, 2015Once Heritage Hall figured out how to stop Casady's William Walter, the Chargers simply ran away from their archrivals on Thursday night in the annual Polo Bowl. Walter scored the first three times he touched the football for the Cyclones, but Class 3A No. 1 Heritage Hall simply had too many offensive weapons and cruised to a 60-21 win at Pop Murray Memorial Field. Even with a running clock for the final 16 minutes of the game, Heritage Hall (1-0) rolled up 643 yards of offense. All-purpose threat Tevin McDaniel provided 246 of those yards, catching four passes for 169 yards and three touchdowns and rushing four times for 77 yards and two scores. He averaged 30.8 yards every time he touched the ball. “We had a slow start,” McDaniel said. “It's a rivalry game and they're going to come out with the best they have, but we had to come out and finish. … We really showed that we're the better team and finished out strong.” Running back Terrell Love carried 20 times for 180 yards and a touchdown for Heritage Hall, while sophomore quarterback Blake Adams, making his first start, went 9-of-14 passing for 255 yards and four touchdowns. He made only one big mistake, a fumble that went the other way for a Casady touchdown. The Chargers never punted and had one late drive stopped at the Casady 3-yard line. “It all starts with the guys up front,” said first-year Heritage Hall head coach Brett Bogert. “We have four returners from the state-championship team on the line, which is huge – Blake Brigham, Jack Ross, Luther Harris and Miles Francisco, and then the senior Matty Price, he just moved down there. “But you can't say enough about Tank (Love) and Tevin. They're studs. They come to work every day. They're leaders of the team. They made it easy on Blake, and Blake really did a good job in his first start. Walter, a junior linebacker and running back, proved the beneficiary of Adams' fumble, returning it 66 yards after snatching it out of the air following Ryan Callahan's blind-side hit of Adams. That put Casady (0-2) ahead 7-0. Love carried for 51 yards to the Casady 4, then scored on the next play and again on a 2-point conversion run after a Casady penalty, giving Heritage Hall an 8-7 lead. The Chargers never trailed again, scoring on every possession the rest of the first half, the first time on a 61-yard catch-and-run pass (on a 3rd-and-26 play) from Adams to McDaniel. Walter's first carry went for a 27-yard touchdown for Casady – he finished with 121 yards on nine carries – but Adams capped Heritage Hall's next drive with a 9-yard scoring scamper. A 59-yard touchdown run by Walter pulled Casady within 22-21, but McDaniel answered with a 12-yard scoring run. The Chargers then forced a punt, then went up 36-21 when Adams hit McDaniel on a screen pass that went for a 51-yard score. Garrett McLaughlin's 31-yard field goal made it 39-21 by halftime. Heritage Hall tacked on three more third-quarter touchdowns – two by McDaniel, on a 55-yard run and a 24-yard pass from Adams, along with a 47-yard scoring pass from Adams to Santana Randle. The Chargers should get stern tests the next two weeks, with games against traditional powerhouses Clinton and Davis. “It's a great challenge for us,” Bogert said. “It gets us ready for the playoffs. These teams show us the kind of physical ball that we need to play heading into the playoffs.”

D.C. travelblog: A sobering day at the Memorials
Berry Tramel | Jun 14, 2015[img url=http://blog.newsok.com/dittocontent/uploads/sites/3/2015/06/korean-memorial.jpg]3702689[/img] We flew low over the Potomac River and onto the runway at Reagan National. The last time I was in Washington, D.C. (April 1981), Air Florida flight 90 had yet to crash into the Potomac. That would be nine months later. The last time I was in D.C., its close-by airport was called Washington National. Ronald Reagan had been in office less than three months. But now we were back, the Dish and I. She has a fund-raising conference this week, and I tagged along. I figure an American ought to see his capital every 30 years or so. I came through D.C. when I was 15, 1976, and spent a day. Then another day in 1981, just after my brother's Virginia wedding. Now I've got several days, with the perspective of half a century on Earth, to take in our seat of government. I had a friend who once joked that he thought a career as a schoolteacher would be tremendous, except for all those kids he'd have to deal with. D.C.'s a little like that. If it wasn't for the politicians, what a heck of a place Washington would be. So it's good in D.C. to try to focus on the government, and not the politics. Government gets a bad rap. Politics don't. Politics deserves its sewer-rat status. But government doesn't. Government has helped us produce a fabulous nation. You realize that walking the streets and the sights of D.C. We're staying at the Melrose Hotel, on the edge of Georgetown in northwest D.C. It's a good-sized room. The desk is built into a little enclave. Above the desk, on the wall, is not a picture or a window. It's a giant script, proclaiming, "We the People," continued in smaller type by remnants of the Constitution. I'm a little like Annie when she goes to spend Christmas at Daddy Warbucks' house. I think I'm gonna like it here. MEMORIAL ROW [img url=http://blog.newsok.com/dittocontent/uploads/sites/3/2015/06/washington-monument.jpg]3702692[/img] We had a 7:05 a.m. flight out of OKC on Saturday, which meant waking up at 5 a.m., and we didn't get to sleep very early Friday night, so we were running on empty when we got to our hotel about 4 p.m. Eastern time. Still, that's almost five hours of daylight. So our gameplan was this. Try to knock out the western side of the National Mall, which is a national park, rectangular in shape, that stretches from the U.S. Capitol on the east to the Lincoln Memorial on the west. It's 1.9 miles long, east-to-west, and varies north-to-south. Think Central Park, only with historical monuments. We figured we'd be walking a ton, so we took a cab to the Mall, which is about two miles from our hotel. We drove by George Washington University, which sounds cool but which has a setting a little too urban for my taste, and the State Department, which is a massive compound without much character (no political jokes here). The cabbie let us out on the north side of the park. And our stroll was tremendous. ‘* We entered the Vietnam Veterans Memorial without even knowing it. I guess we entered from the wrong side, though I don't know why it matters. You've heard all about the Wall. But the Vietnam Memorial is not something adequately experienced in print or video. The names are on two gabbro walls -- gabbro is a reflective rock -- each 246 feet, 9 inches in length. They are placed L-shaped and sunk into the ground, so you enter from either side and begin walking at a downward angle. The rock walls are just eight inches in height at the top, which means we didn't even know we were walking past them. Eventually, we figured it out, and at the bottom, the walls are over 10 feet tall. It's a sobering experience to walk past the walls. As of last year, there were 58,300 names listed. We went through six memorials Saturday; the Vietnam was easily the most reverent. It's the names, of course. Individual names personalize a war. At each end of the memorial are books, protected from the elements but accessible to the public, to look up a particular name. Fortunately, I couldn't recall a family member or friend who had been killed in Vietnam. I found the name of Bob Kalsu, the former OU star. I thought of Del City's football stadium, named for Kalsu, and the first time I saw it and wondered who Bob Kalsu was. [img url=http://blog.newsok.com/dittocontent/uploads/sites/3/2015/06/lincoln-memorial.jpg]3702693[/img] * The Lincoln Memorial stands majestically to the south of the Vietnam Memorial. We didn't get to the west of the Mall during either of my previous two trips to D.C., so I was looking forward to the Lincoln Memorial. I've always remembered the Gomer Pyle episode, when Gomer is supposed to sing at some big function in D.C., and Sgt. Carter has him signing some goober song, but a commander suggests "Impossible Dream" instead. Then Gomer finds out he's singing for the Vice President loses his voice because he's nervous. Gomer trudges off in shame and finds himself at the Lincoln Memorial, where a National Parks Service guard tells him that Abe Lincoln never lost his serve. Gomer starts reciting the Gettysburg Address, which is in huge type on the east wall of the Memorial, and gets his voice back. It's not completely kooky. I can think of few things more inspirational than reciting the Gettysburg Address at the Lincoln Memorial. I did it myself, in my head, Saturday. What a speech. On the west wall is Lincoln's second inaugural address. And the massive sculpture, with Lincoln sitting in a chair, is fantastic. The Lincoln Memorial is a Roman-style monument that sits 55 steps above the ground, overlooking the Mall. Lincoln himself is looking out over the Mall, in the direction of the Washington Monument. It's a glorious setting. As we descended the steps of the Lincoln Memorial, we noticed a singing group standing at the bottom, not far from the long reflecting pool (2,029 feet by 167) that stretches toward the Washington Monument. We went down and listened. I have no idea who they were; about 20 people dressed in blue shirts, most of them older but a few young people, singing "Shall We Gather at the River." * The Korean War Veterans Memorial was next. Full confession. Until Friday, I didn't know we had a Korean War Memorial. And it was the best surprise of the day. The Korean memorial includes a 164-foot-long granite wall, that contains more than 2,500 photographic images sandblasted, representing the land, sea and air troops who served. The main memorial is in the shape of a triangle, in which are 19 stainless steel statues, each over seven feet tall. They represent a squad on patrol. The entire memorial is gorgeous. It contains a short wall listing the nations that participated in the war. Inscriptions list the numbers killed, wounded, missing in action and captured. A plaque proclaims: "Our nation honors her sons and daughters who answered the call to defend a country they never knew and a people they never met." I wondered how the people of South Korea felt about Americans today. South Vietnam fell. South Korea didn't. South Korea is a thriving nation. North Korea is, well, North Korea. Then I got my answer. At the top of the triangle with the 19 soldier statues, sits a wreath, with these words: "We remember you forever. With people of the Republic of Korea. Presented by: Class of 1963, College of Commerce, Seoul Nation University." My father-in-law served in Korea. I wish he could have seen this. He died in 1995, the same year the memorial opened. [img url=http://blog.newsok.com/dittocontent/uploads/sites/3/2015/06/mlk-stone1.jpg]3702691[/img] * I've been to the Civil Rights Museums in Memphis and Montgomery, Ala., which in many ways are tributes to Martin Luther King Jr., and I've been to the MLK museum in Atlanta. So no reason to skip the MLK Memorial in D.C. The D.C. Memorials are more tributes than museum. They're not designed to tell the whole story. But the MLK Memorial, and the Franklin Roosevelt Memorial, come close. Both Memorials are across Independence Avenue, toward the Potomac River, which means they're outside the Mall. They sit on the Tidal Basin, the partially man-made reservoir between the river and the Washington Channel. It's a beautiful setting; it's the focal point of the National Cherry Blossom Festival. To enter MLK's Memorial, you walk through huge stones. Almost Egyptian in feel, and see back of the MLK monument, made out of the same stone. On one side is the inscription, "Out of the mountain of despair, a stone of hope." MLK's likeness then looks out over the Tidal Basin. Almost Egyptian in feel, and see back of the MLK monument, made out of the same stone. On one side is the inscription, "Out of the mountain of despair, a stone of hope." MLK's likeness then looks out over the Tidal Basin. The memorial, which didn't open until 2011, contains rock walls, also looking out onto the water, with 14 famous MLK quotations. Like this, "Darkness cannot drive out darkness, only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate, only love can do that." * You walk maybe an eighth of the way around the basin to get to the FDR Memorial, which opened in 1997. It's spread over 71/2 across of rock formations and contains four sequences, each representing an FDR term in office. Sculptures include FDR with his dog, iconic Great Depression scenes such as men waiting in a bread line and a citizen listening to a fireside chat, and Eleanor Roosevelt standing before the United Nations emblem. FDR quotes are inscripted upon the rocks. The most famous, of course, is "There is nothing to fear but fear itself." I heard a young woman in her 20s say, "Hey, I like that." Yep, it might have some staying power. * The Jefferson Memorial is on the opposite side of the Tidal Basin, which is 107 acres of water. So it's a nice walk. The Jefferson Memorial is not as famous as the Lincoln Memorial but is very similar. Roman-style columns, massive steps, covered but open-air sculpture. Jefferson is standing, not sitting, but same as Lincoln, some of his famous pronouncements are displayed on the sides of the memorial. Most historians agree that Jefferson was the smartest of our presidents. Maybe the smartest of our Americans. I had a history professor once say that the Theory of Evolution takes a hit when you compare modern presidents to Thomas Jefferson, who maybe wasn't the Father of our Country but was the Father of How We Think, as the principal author of the Declaration of Independence. By this time, we were pretty gassed. The Dish has one of those Fitbit things, and she was in the 18,000-step range (she would finish with 22,000-plus), so we decided to start planning for dinner. We continued to circle the Basin, back towards the Washington Monument, and near the Monument we hailed a cab. Our tour for the day was over. Lots more still to see, but unlike my previous trips to D.C., this time, I've got time to see them. COLD OR HOT Here's the problem when you travel in summer. It's hot outside. It's cold everywhere you go inside. Our Southwest flight from OKC to Atlanta was freezing. I wore a sportscoat for that very reason, and because that's how I keep track of everything, with interior pockets. But the Dish had my coat before we hit cruising speed. At dinner Saturday night, a famous D.C. place called Clyde's, the temperature had to be 66. It was freezing. But it wasn't freezing in our hotel room. The Melrose is an elegant hotel, seems to have all the amenities, but our room was hot when we checked in. I turned on the fan, thought maybe that was it, and when we returned Saturday night, it was no better. So I called the front desk, and about 20 minutes later they sent up an engineer. He found the problem in about 10 minutes. Some valve something or other. So it cooled off. But the Melrose isn't in the business of prompt service. They don't have ice you can retrieve yourself. You have to call for it. This isn't a resort. I don't mind getting my own ice. But you have to call for it. The Dish doesn't function without ice water at night, so I called for it. And 15 minutes later, it hadn't come. So I went down and made them hand it over. Some things done in the name of service are the exact opposite. The flights were mostly uneventful. The Atlanta airport, Hartsfield, is massive, of course, and they've got great dining options. Chick-fil-A is headquartered in Atlanta. So is Coca-Cola. Both had big airport presence. Varsity, a longtime Georgia institution, was there, too. I ate at one in Athens. The Dish got a good window seat for the flight to D.C., in front of the wing, but you have to be careful. You don't really want to watch baggage-handlers. Sort of like watching people make your food. You might be better off ignorant. It was nice to see them load both of our bags, but they were treated with all the delicacy of potting soil. GEORGETOWN I assume we'll start using the Metrorail, but it was all taxis Saturday. Reagan National sits on the south side of the Potomac, in Arlington County, Va., but literally on the banks of the river. So it's an easy jaunt over to the bridge that takes you right by the Lincoln Memorial. The cab ride from the airport to our hotel was $19. The cab ride from the hotel to the Mall was $6.22. The ride from the Washington Monument to Georgetown was $13, a lot of it caused by traffic. Traffic is bad in Georgetown. Georgetown is the neighborhood with the university of the same name, but it's also the trendy area of D.C., with great shopping, dining and housing. We had lunch at the Atlanta airport -- shared a cheesesteak at Charley's Cheesesteak, which was good -- but were hungry by 8 p.m. So we went to Clyde's, which has several locations in the D.C. area. It's sort of an old-saloon atmosphere. Quaint and lively, I'd say. We sat in the corner, literally in the corner, in rounded booth-like seats. The Dish had pasta carbonara; I had a Thai seafood stew. The carbonara was good, though it had bacon and I prefer chicken. My stew was good; really wasn't much of a stew. More just a collection of seafood, with rice, but it was excellent. The prices weren't too bad; mine was $19, I think, and the Dish's was $17. I'd go back. Then we got a piece of chocolate next door at Godiva and walked back to the hotel, ready to conk out and get rested for another day of adventure in our nation's capital.

Executive Q&A: Phillips Murrah Director Tim Kline was helping his dad teach a bankruptcy law course at Oklahoma City University when Penn Square Bank collapsed in July 1982. He and his father — the late David A. Kline Jr., an experienced bankruptcy judge who’d helped promote the 1978 Bankruptcy Reform Act — subsequently went into practice together.
Executive Q&A: Penn Square Bank collapse sparks counselor's career in bankruptcy law
By Paula Burkes, Business Writer | Apr 12, 2015The morning of the 1982 Penn Square Bank collapse, Phillips Murrah Director Tim Kline — then a young general litigation attorney — was asked by his firm to call on Oklahoma City oilman Carl Swan, who was a director of the bank. “It was the Monday following the July 4th weekend, and I was supposed to be off,” said Kline, who remembers he wasn’t too happy about the assignment. In their meeting, Kline asked Swan if the bank was OK and Swan, in his notorious gruff manner, reported that it was; that the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation agreed to capitalize millions more and give the bank more time, he said. But when Kline arrived home and flipped on his TV, he learned the FDIC had pulled the plug on Penn Square Bank. The infamous bankruptcy is what sparked a nearly 33-year career in bankruptcy law for Kline, whose late father and former Assistant U.S. Attorney David A. Kline Jr. served 14 years as a bankruptcy judge. At the time of the collapse, Kline was helping his dad teach a bankruptcy law course at Oklahoma City University — largely on the 1978 Bankruptcy Reform Act, which the senior Kline had helped promote. Tim Kline never intended to go into bankruptcy law but, following the oil bust, circumstances unfolded that way, he said. With so much demand for bankruptcy work, his dad left the bench and they formed Kline & Kline in February 1983, where they worked together for more than 25 years. Kline in 2011 joined Phillips Murrah, where he continues to specialize in bankruptcy law. From his offices on the 13th floor of the Corporate Tower, Kline, 65, sat down recently to talk about his life and career. This is an edited transcript: Q: Tell us about your roots. A: Of course, my father was an attorney and my mother was a homemaker. I’m the middle child of their three children. My brother is six years older and my sister is eight years younger. My father used to joke that he managed to raise three only children. But we were, and still are, close. In fact, we three and our mother, 94, all live within walking distance from one another on several hundred acres we bought in 1981 in the Jones Public Schools District in eastern Oklahoma County, 10 miles east of I-35, where we have dogs, chickens and horses. My brother-in-law raises cattle. When I was a bachelor, my home was like an overgrown cabin. But since Alyssa and I married, we’ve reinvented it three times. It’s three-storied and our second story overlooks a lake. Q: Where did you go to school? A: In elementary school, I was a Mayfair Chipmunk. We lived near 50th and May when Mayfair was a brand-new neighborhood. In the sixth- and seventh-grades, I attended Casady, after my brother was recruited there to play baseball. Once he graduated and went to OU on a baseball scholarship — and I lost my ride to school — I transferred to Putnam City, where I graduated. Growing up, I played baseball, football and basketball, but my siblings were far better athletes. My sister went to OCU on a tennis scholarship. I was into politics. At 7, I remember sitting up and crying when Adlai Stevenson lost; in 1960, I got to hear JFK speak in the municipal auditorium; and before I could vote, I was the Ward 1 campaign chairman for Eugene McCarthy. I also enjoyed speech, debate and plays. My favorite role was the lead my sophomore year in “Look Heavenward Angel.” Q: What were some of your first jobs and first cars? A: As a youth, I worked at the municipal ball park. My sophomore year in high school, I threw the first papers of the now-defunct Oklahoma Journal. By the summer of my senior year, I graduated to writing obits and writing some Friday night football stories. My freshman year of college, I was awarded a scholarship to UCO. My father told me if I took it, he’d get me a car, though it wasn’t a very nice car. It was a used light blue Ford Fairlane. When I was a junior, and doing well in school at OU, he bought me a purple Plymouth Road Runner. Q: Did you always plan on being an attorney? A: There was a time I considered becoming a philosophy teacher. At OU, I studied under the legendary J. Clayton Feaver and considered getting a Ph.D. in philosophy. I’d earned a graduate minor in it, along with a bachelor’s and master’s in polisci. But instead, I wound up taking the law school entrance exam. I like the problem solving in law, and helping people where they have a practical need. During law school, I interned with the U.S. Attorneys office and worked at the Redlands Racket Club and OKC Tennis Center. I got to play tennis with Colin Robertson. Before my father and I opened our own firm, I clerked for over three years for U.S. federal judge Luther Bohanon. He liked having me in the courtroom with him, so I got to see a lot of good lawyers at work in big trials. I worked the next three years for the firm of Jimmy Linn, a west Texas litigator who was a heavy hitter on the national level. Q: What do you like about practicing bankruptcy law? A: My work is really about avoiding bankruptcy as such. Whether I represent the debtor, creditor or a trustee, I try to bring together parties who are in financial stress and help them clarify what common interests are involved and how to maximize financial recovery. My goal is to do the most for the most people in the most efficient manner possible. Of course, like in all things in life, it takes two to tango. Sometimes, people aren’t cooperative and we have to go to a Plan B scenario and invoke legal remedies and be as confrontational as necessary. I’m as nice as the other side will allow. Q: How did you meet your wife? A: Alyssa is a native Canadian. We met at Christmastime 1976, when I went to British Columbia to visit relatives and friends, but then she was only a punk teenager. Her family and I kept in touch over the years and in the summer of ’85, she called to say she and her folks were going to Seattle and would I like to meet them there. She was 23; I was 36. I spent a couple days in Seattle, but had to fly back to Albuquerque for a big case. Three weeks later, I flew to British Columbia, where we wed and spent our honeymoon. She was shocked that it was 100 degrees in Oklahoma City, when our flight arrived home at 11 p.m. on Sept. 1. The next morning, she joked about getting an annulment. But this August, we will have been married 30 years. Alyssa earned an education degree at UCO and taught elementary school, before she had our daughters whom she home schools. After the girls were born, Alyssa’s parents moved to Oklahoma City. We’ve lost her mother, but her father lives in a retirement community. He’s 94 and was over for Easter.
O’Hara served as offensive coordinator at Newcastle the past two seasons, helping the 2014 Racers to one of their best seasons in recent years.
High school notebook: Scott O'Hara named Purcell's new football coach
By Scott Wright and Jacob Unruh | Apr 9, 2015Purcell’s two-month search for its next football coach has ended.

He has also served as a head coach at Luther and Burns Flat-Dill City. O’Hara will be the fourth head coach in the last five seasons at Purcell. He replaces Greg Willis, who was not retained after going 13-9 in two seasons with the Dragons.

Cudjoe played in the Douglass-Tulsa Washington rivalry in the 1970s under his father, legendary Douglass coach Lawrence Cudjoe. “This was the oldest and most popular rivalry in the state,” Kendal Cudjoe said. “It’s unfortunate that it had to end in football and basketball. It goes back as far as the 1930s.” Tulsa Washington alum Fred Jones has organized the event, which began four years ago. “We are celebrating 95 years of athletic tradition,” he said. “Both schools truly bleed orange and black. We will have plenty of former players from all schools in the building, so this will be an awesome night.” TOLEDO OFFERS HARRAH’S LOGAN ROBERSON Add Harrah offensive lineman Logan Roberson to the ever-growing list of Oklahoma players to add scholarship offers the past few weeks. Roberson was offered by Toledo on Wednesday, Harrah coach Phil Webb told The Oklahoman. The offer is the second for Roberson, who was offered by Arkansas State early in the offseason. The 6-foot-5, 320-pound junior is ranked No. 13 on The Oklahoman’s Super 30. TEAGUE’S HOMER LIFTS MOUNT ST. MARY Mount St. Mary’s Jeff Teague might have found a way to ignite his team. Teaque hit a decisive three-run homer in the seventh inning at Heritage Hall on Monday, propelling the Rockets to a 10-8 victory to return to .500. “We haven’t had many of those kind of events happen this year, so naturally it’s an ignited of many sorts,” Mount St. Mary coach John Keilty said. Teague, a left-handed hitter, hit the three-run blast off last week’s Player of the Week, Joe Buckendorff. He allowed five earned runs in just 11/3 innings of work. Teague finished 2 for 3 with four RBIs and three runs. The Rockets are now 8-8 and host Crossings Christian on Monday.

High school notebook: Heritage Hall's Luther Harris, Southmoore's Noah Jones add offers
BY SCOTT WRIGHT AND JACOB UNRUH | Apr 7, 2015Scholarship offers just keep pouring in for Oklahoma prospects in the 2016 football class. Two of the metro area’s top prospects picked up offers on Monday, with Ohio continuing to pursue Oklahoma kids. The Bobcats offered Heritage Hall offensive lineman Luther Harris, a 6-foot-6, 360-pound junior who also has an offer from Tulsa. And Southmoore defensive end Noah Jones posted on Twitter on Monday night that Army had offered him. The 6-foot-5, 250-pound Jones now has four offers, headed by Kansas State. The class continues to show its depth and positional variety as well. Oologah linebacker Jimmy McKinney reached double-digit offers with Toledo becoming the 10th program to extend an offer to the 6-foot-1, 215-pound junior. Last week, Lone Grove running back Jeremy Lewis added an offer from Nebraska to go with Ohio and Tulsa. WESTMOORE THROWS BACK-TO-BACK NO-HITTERS Westmoore pulled off a rare feat Monday behind its two ace pitchers. The Jaguars threw back-to-back no-hitters in a doubleheader sweep of Lawton Eisenhower behind Oklahoma signee Kyle Tyler and Connors State signee Austin Harris. The accomplishment was even a surprise to the coaching staff. “It was one of those nights you didn’t even realize what we did until we sat down in the coaches office and started looking at everything,” Westmoore coach Jarod Freeman said. “They both threw great. It didn’t really matter who they were facing hitting-wise. They were both on and lights out.” Tyler, who was on The Oklahoman’s All-State team last season, opened the day by striking out nine and walking two in the 10-0 run rule in five innings. He threw just 66 pitches. Harris then followed with a 62-pitch performance in which he struck out seven, walked one batter and hit another in another 10-0 run-rule victory. Westmoore is now 14-3 and 7-1 in District 6A-2 play, which puts the Jaguars atop the district standings. They have won 11 straight games entering Carl Albert’s Bill Tipton Tournament this weekend. The no-hitters continue a recent trend across the Oklahoma City metro. Noble pitcher Nathan Hayes threw one last week and so did Bethany’s James Stillings. MCALESTER’S PRATT TAKES COACHING JOB IN ARKANSAS McAlester becomes the latest big-name football program in the state to be in need of a new head coach. Bryan Pratt was approved by the Bentonville, Ark., school board on Monday night as the new coach at Bentonville West. The newly constructed school will not begin varsity play until 2016, with Pratt to serve as head coach of the freshmen who will feed into Bentonville West the following season. Pratt, who was 85-27 in nine seasons at McAlester, reportedly had been a finalist for the head coaching job at Bentonville High, one of the state’s top programs.
