    DENVER -- The brother of a University of Oklahoma student who blew himself up outside the OU football stadium last year has been charged with threatening a second FBI agent. The additional charge against Thomas Carlisle "Tom" Hinrichs of Colorado Springs is contained in an indictment that was made public Tuesday in U.S. District Court in Denver. Hinrichs originally was charged Nov. 21 with threatening during Nov. 15-16 interrogations to assault or murder an FBI agent identified only as "Todd" in Colorado Springs. The new charge alleges that Hinrichs threatened in an Oct. 12 telephone call to "bury" William Burruel,...

    NORMAN - Two men charged in Cleveland County with breaking into a University of Oklahoma room marked "biohazard" were involved in a "stupid prank" and not something more sinister, an attorney for one of the men said.

Eldridge is an OU junior from Oklahoma City studying in the College of Arts and Sciences, according to the OU Web site. Boyce was not listed as being enrolled at OU. On Oct. 20, a woman told OU...

    NORMAN, Okla. -- Hundreds of students are now under investigation after fake IDs are found on the University of Oklahoma campus. Police said the latest rash of fake IDs have come from Dallas and that an OU fraternity member is selling the bogus Texas driver's licenses for about $100 each. Experts say these IDs are so close to the real thing that they're virtually undetectable. "The ones coming out of Texas are really good, and they're getting better," said O'Connell's bartender Todd Emerson. Emerson has confiscated dozens of fake IDs at the Norman pub. "Most of these IDs are pretty...

    THOUGH Social Security's fiscal direction has taken center stage in Washington of late, Medicare's future financing problems are likely to be much worse. President Bush has asserted that the Medicare Modernization Act, which he signed in 2003, would solve some of those problems - "the logic is irrefutable," he said two months ago. Yet the Congressional Budget Office expects the law to create just $28 billion in savings during the decade after its passage, while its prescription drug benefit will add more than $400 billion in costs. So, how can Medicare's ballooning costs be contained? One idea is to let...
