STILLWATER, Okla. — Mona Wells outlined a prancing horse and filled it with warm shades of watercolor paint. Beside her, Gaynelle Gray created an image of a tree and a pastel blue sky. By Hallie Hart.


NORMAN, Okla. — Women in research meteorology have long been in the minority, said Pamela Heinselman, a supervisory and research meteorologist at the National Severe Storms Laboratory. Heinselman is chief of Forecast Research and Development Division and manager of the Warn-on-Forecast Program. She also serves as an affiliate associate professor at the University of Oklahoma School of Meteorology. By Joy Hampton.


BILINGUAL-SCHOOL CERTIFICATES — An Oklahoma organization is proposing the state add a bilingual certification on diplomas given to high school graduates who speak more than one language.

EARTHQUAKES-OKLAHOMA — The U.S. Geological Survey has recorded three small earthquakes in northwestern Oklahoma during the weekend.



NORMAN, Okla. — As if Iowa State doesn't have enough to worry about with revenge-minded Oklahoma visiting on Saturday, the Cyclones will have to deal with the full force of "Beamer Ball." Oklahoma brought in Shane Beamer from Georgia in the offseason to help Jay Boulware run special teams, and the move has paid off immediately. In the opener, Lee Morris blocked a punt and Curtis Bolton recovered it in the end zone for a touchdown that helped spark a 63-14 victory over Florida Atlantic. In Saturday's game against UCLA, the Sooners did it with the return game — Tre Brown had 121 yards on two kickoff returns and CeeDee Lamb had a 66-yard punt return during a 49-21 win . By Cliff Brunt.
