Tuning In KTVY reporters pick up awards By Glen Phillips It's accolade time over at KTVY Channel 4. Big Bob Barry, who has become a bit of a legend himself while reporting the legends of Oklahoma sports, has been named the Oklahoma Sportscas-ter of the Year for the seventh straight year. Seven in a row, sure ... but it's Barry's four-teenth trip to the dais to pick up this particular honor. The salute comes from the National Association of Sportswriters and Sportscasters. Also up for a round of applause is Channel 4's senior weatherman, Jim Williams. Although the "James D. Williams" almost slipped by on the announcement, it was indeed the familiar Jim who picked up his award in Miami, Fla., last HAVE YOU CONSIDERED? .vi POOL OR SPA ISN'T IT TIME TO THINK AHEAD?

INTERSTATE 35 NAME ADDRESS '..ZZ''Z'. CITY STATE .... ,ZJP month during the 66th annual meeting of the American Meteorlogical Society. Williams was cited "for 28 years of outstanding broadcast weather service to television viewers of central Oklahoma and for pioneering achievements in media presentation of weather radar data." We're going to slip in a ringer on you here, though we don't think Jim would mind a tip of the hat to a couple of his professional (but non-TV) colleagues. There were two other Oklahomans that garnered AMS awards at that same Miami meeting. Douglas K. Lilly, professor of meteorology at the University of Oklahoma in Norman, received the society's highest honor the Garl-Gustaf Rossby Research Medal. The honor was in recognition of Lilly's outstanding contributions to man's understanding of the structure or behavior of the atmosphere. A third Sooner similarly saluted was Dr. Robert P. Davies-Jones, a native of Leicester, England, who joined the National Severe Storms Laboratory in Norman in 1970. He became leader of its Tornado Intercept Project in 1975 and in 1976 was appointed adjunct professor meteorology at OU. He investigates the dynamics of tornadoes and severe thunderstorms. His work with the intercept project involves approaching storms in special vehicles to observe and document their structure and dynamics. To a laymen, that seems a dicey way to make a living. Davies-Jones was cited along with four others for his work reviewing manuscripts submitted to the AMS journals. The five were hailed for sustaining the high standards of the journals and for their contribution of the time involved. Can we talk? None of us would spread gossip, I know, but don't you just love a great juicy story. Well, there's a show for you coming up Valentine's night on KOCO Channel 5. It's called "The Last Days of Marilyn Monroe" and its runs from 8:30 to 10 p.m. The syndicated special gives good solid treatment to the facts about the last few months of the movie goddess' life. Her affairs with members of the Kennedy family, links to gangland figures and even whether Robert Kennedy was at Monroe's house the night she died have been bandied about in the scandal sheets for some time.
