Kimberly Tilley 8th-9th Grade Food Camp at USAO  Applications are open for Science & Arts’ residen- tial food camp for 8th- and 9th-grade students.  Eighth- and ninth-grade students can learn about where food comes from and how it got there during the University of Science & Arts of Oklahoma’s free, five-day, residential food camps, which will be held June 20-24 and July 11-15 this year.  Under the guidance of Dr. Jeannette Loutsch, pro- fessor of biology, campers will follow the progress of food from the garden to the kitchen to the pantry. They will learn fundamental cooking techniques as well as the science behind how and why these tech- niques create delicious flavors.  “This camp is an extremely hands-on approach to dealing with food and the processing of food,” said Loutsch. “Students will get an introduction to the sci- ence behind rising bread, the nutrients in food and the presence of proteins in samples of fish. We will also visit local farms and farmers’ markets to collect pro- duce. This camp is an invaluable experience for the campers because they live on campus and get a taste of college life, and most importantly, they to take home all the goodies they have made in camp to share with family!”  Applications can be found at usao.edu/food- camp or contact Loutsch at 405-512-8330 and leave a message for more information. ignored’ in order to get the highest number of inmates possible onto commutation dockets. The governor described the commutations as giving non-violent, low-level offenders a second chance.  The move came after the governor appointed three new members to the pardon and parole board.  Prior to the new members taking office, the panel rejected a commutation request for Anderson in 2019. That decision should have prevented Anderson from applying for commutation again for three years. How- ever, he was able to do so within just a few months after the new parole board members took office - and the group twice voted in Anderson’s favor.  The grand jury criticized the governor for putting improper political pressure on his appointees and that the action was grossly improper.  The grand jury also reported that at least one high-level member of the administrative staff became aware of Anderson’s case being placed on the pardon and parole docket in error - and that it was found early enough that it could have been easily corrected. However, a decision was made by an unidentified individual to not bring the error to the attention of the pardon and parole board or the governor.  A statement from the governor’s office called the grand jury report ‘the latest in a string of unfounded hit jobs by the Oklahoma County district attorney and other political insiders’. ‘Grand Jury’ continued from Page 1 165 MPH in a 75  Oklahoma Highway Patrol Trooper Forest White was running radar on the H.E.
