Study: Culture kept crimes in shadow ■ Report supports notion

of Penn State scandal going all the way to top. BY GENARO C. ARMAS, GEOFF MULVIHILL AND MARK SCOLFORO Associated Press

PHILADELPHIA – Joe Paterno and other top Penn State officials buried child sexual abuse allegations against Jerry Sandusky more than a decade

ago to avoid bad publicity, according to a scathing report Thursday that exposed a powerful “culture of reverence” for the football program and portrayed the Hall of Fame coach as more deeply involved in the scandal than previously thought. The alleged cover-up by Paterno, then-university President Graham Spanier and two other Penn State administrators allowed Sandusky to prey on other boys for years, said the report by

former FBI DiINSIDE rector Louis A look at Freeh, who was hired by the uni- coach’s legacy B1 versity’s trustees to investigate. He called the officials’ behavior “callous and shocking.” “Our most saddening and sobering finding is the total disregard for the safety and welfare of Sandusky’s child victims by the most senior leaders at Penn State,” Freeh

said at a news conference in Philadelphia upon the release of the 267-page report. “The most powerful men at PATERNO Penn State failed to take any steps for 14 years to protect the children who Sandusky victimized.” The findings of the $6.5 million, eight-month investigation into one of the

biggest scandals in the history of college sports could further stain Paterno’s reputation. The revered coach who emphasized integrity both on and off the field and ran what was considered one of the cleanest programs in sports died of lung cancer in January at age 85, months after he was summarily fired by the trustees. Freeh said that while he regretted the damage the findings would do to Paterno’s “terrific legacy,” the


coach “was an integral part of this active decision to conceal,” and his firing was justified. Asked whether the actions of the four officials amounted to a crime such as conspiracy or obstruction, Freeh said that would be a matter for a grand jury to decide. In a statement, Paterno’s family strongly denied he protected Sandusky for fear

Group takes first steps for better travel ■ Walk showcases several areas where

sidewalks found wanting and dangerous. BY KEN STEPHENS The Hutchinson News

A group of 40 community leaders attending a “Complete Streets” workshop Thursday at the Kansas Cosmosphere and Space Center didn’t have to walk far to find a case study for how Hutchinson can improve mobility for pedestrians and people in wheelchairs or on bikes. Walking north along Plum from 11th Avenue to 17th Avenue and then east along 17th to Cleveland Street, they encountered narrow uneven sidewalks and sidewalks that lost half their width because of overgrown shrubs and trees. There was even one long stretch along the south side of 17th with no sidewalk at all and instead a “goat path” that clearly indicated

New highway noise has nearby residents worried BY KAYLA REGAN The Hutchinson News

As contractors are concerned with the span of the pedestrian bridge over the new K-61 highway, some residents are concerned about what the roadway could impact: the value of their

home. Thursday night, a handful of people, mostly property owners, attended a meeting held by the Reno County Appraiser’s office discussing how the highway could affect property values of homes near the new four-lane highway. Residents argued the highway brought

noise and more traffic to an area valued for what used to be a country-like setting. County Appraiser Lori Reedy said they wouldn’t know for sure how the highway could impact home prices for a number of years. “Will it make homes less desirable? That’s a possibility,” she said.

Becky Crockford lives on the southeast side of the highway’s 56th Avenue off ramp. She said officials at the Kansas Department of Transportation told her that the property value might go up because people like to live next to an interchange.

State Rep. Jan Pauls, DHutchinson, faces a second controversy involving a property she owns. Ryon Carey, Lindsborg, said he mailed a formal complaint Thursday to the Kansas Governmental Ethics Commission regarding Pauls’ Substantial InPAULS terests form required by the state. She did not list the duplex she and husband Ron Pauls own at 1012 N. Walnut St. “We have lost money on it every year,” said Rep. Pauls, explaining why she didn’t list it.

Vice President Joe Biden addresses the NAACP annual convention Thursday in Houston.

Biden cheers rallies for Obama at NAACP convention HOUSTON – Vice President Joe Biden rallied support for President Barack Obama before the nation’s largest civil rights organization on Thursday, declaring that Republican challenger Mitt Romney’s election-year agenda would hurt – not help – working families in the black community. Biden, appearing before the NAACP’s annual convention one day after Romney addressed the group, offered what amounted to a rebuttal of the Republican rival as both campaigns sought support from a key constituency in several swing states. The vice president did not specifically cite Romney’s argument to the NAACP on Wednesday that he could serve African-Americans better than Obama, the nation’s first black president. Romney was booed when he said he’d repeal Obama’s sweeping health care reform law but otherwise got a polite reception as he reached out to a traditionally Democratic voting bloc.

US government records deficit slightly below 2011 WASHINGTON – The U.S. budget deficit grew by nearly $60 billion in June, remaining on track to exceed $1 trillion for the fourth straight year. Through the first nine months of the budget year, the federal deficit totaled $904.2 billion, the Treasury Department reported Thursday. President Barack Obama is almost certain to face re-election having run trillion-dollar-plus deficits in each his first four years in office. That would likely benefit his opponent, GOP presumptive nominee Mitt Romney. Obama and congressional Republicans remain at odds over how to lower the deficit. Unless their disagreement is broken, a series of tax increases and spending cuts could kick in next year. Economists warn that could dramatically slow an already weak U.S. economy and even tip it back into a recession. The Congressional Budget Office predicts the deficit for the full year, which ends on Sept. 30, will total $1.17 trillion. That would be a slight improvement from the $1.3 trillion deficit recorded in 2011, but still greater than any deficit before Obama took office.

1 chimp dead, 1 tranquilized after they escape LAS VEGAS – Las Vegas police say they had no choice but to kill one chimpanzee and tranquilize another after the agitated animals escaped a home. Officer Marcus Martin told KLAS-TV that a caller reported a chimp atop a vehicle and another caller reported a primate banging on a police car after the escape was reported about 10 a.m. Thursday. Martin said the chimps were very large and estimated they weighed 170 pounds or more. Police sent out tweets calling the animal dangerous and urging residents to stay inside their cars or homes. By noon, the chimps were both stopped. Video showed one of the animals lying face down in the middle of a road surrounded by animal control and police cars.

Administration seeks to charge terror commander BAGHDAD – The White House is asking Iraq to hand over a Hezbollah commander who was accused of masterminding a 2007 attack that killed five American soldiers, a senior U.S. official said Thursday, though two Iraqi courts have declared him not guilty. The case is a tricky aftermath of the long U.S. military campaign in Iraq that ended last year and has elements of both Iraqi and U.S. internal politics. Ali Mussa Daqduq has been released from prison but is being held under house arrest in Baghdad’s heavily-fortified Green Zone as Washington seeks to bring U.S. charges against him. Daqduq, a Lebanese citizen, is considered a top threat to Americans in the Middle East and was detained for more than four years by the U.S. military before it left Iraq last December. In an interview with The Associated Press, Antony J. Blinken, the national security adviser to Vice President Joe Biden, said the U.S. wants to keep Ali Mussa Daqduq locked up for as long as legally possible.

Documents conflict with Romney remarks BY JACK GILLUM AND JULIE PACE Associated Press

WASHINGTON – Documents filed by Mitt Romney’s former company conflict with the Republican presidential candidate’s statements about when he gave up control of the private equity firm Bain Capital. President Barack Obama’s campaign seized on the discrepancies Thursday to charge that Romney was lying about his background. Romney, in turn, said Obama was the one being dishonest, rolling out a hard-hitting television ad that accused the president of launching “misleading, unfair and untrue” attacks about the Republican’s role in outsourcing U.S. jobs. “When a president doesn’t tell the truth, how can we trust him to lead?” the narrator says in the Romney ad titled “No Evidence.” Obama has accused Romney of being an “outsourcing pioneer” who invested in companies that shipped jobs to China, India and elsewhere overseas. But Romney, who has made his business experience the central part of his candidacy, claims he had no role in outsourcing U.S. jobs because much of that activity didn’t happen until after 1999, when he says he had given up operational control at Bain. Both candidates dug in on their positions, dispatching aides to level deeply personal criticisms aimed at casting each opponent as little more than a typical politician. Each candidate is seeking to sully his rival’s integrity in hopes of gaining ground in closely contested campaign four months before Election Day. But the strategy carries risks: It could alienate voters – especially critical independents – who are turned off by negative campaigning and want to see the candidates focus on the economy and job growth. At issue is when Romney left Bain, and whether he was at the helm when it sent jobs overseas. The documents, filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, place Romney in charge of Bain from 1999 to 2001, a period in which the company outsourced jobs and ran

Republican presidential candidate, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney speaks in Houston. President Barack Obama’s and Republican rival Romney's campaigns traded accusations of lying Thursday, ratcheting up an already heated race for the White House. companies that fell into bankruptcy. Romney has tried to distance himself from this period in Bain’s history, saying on financial disclosure forms he had no active role in Bain as of February 1999. Obama has labeled Romney a job killer in hopes of undercutting the Republican’s claim that his private business experience gives him the ability to turn around the struggling economy. But at least three times

since then, Bain listed Romney as the company’s “controlling person,” as well as its “sole shareholder, sole director, chief executive officer and president.” And one of those documents – as late as February 2001 – lists Romney’s “principal occupation” as Bain’s managing director. The Obama campaign called the SEC documents detailing Romney’s role post-1999 a “big Bain lie.” And Obama deputy campaign manager Stephanie Cutter said the presumptive

GOP nominee may have even engaged in illegal activity. “Either Mitt Romney, through his own words and his own signature, was misrepresenting his position at Bain to the SEC, which is a felony,” Cutter said, “or he is misrepresenting his position at Bain to the American people to avoid responsibility for some of the consequences of his investments.” Countering, Romney campaign manager Matt Rhoades said Cutter’s comments marked “a new low” in the campaign and called on the president to apologize for “the out-of-control behavior of his staff, which demeans the office he holds.” After weeks of Bain attacks by Obama, Romney rolled out his new ad alleging dishonesty – a signal that the Democratic criticism may be hurting him.

New problem arises for attorney in Johnson Co. Planned Parenthood case BY JOHN HANNA Associated Press

TOPEKA – A Kansas prosecutor acknowledged Wednesday in court that he’s facing a new problem in pursuing a criminal case against a Planned Parenthood clinic in the Kansas City area. Johnson County District Attorney Steve Howe said his office is trying to replace an expert witness retained to support 58 misdemeanor criminal charges alleging that the clinic in Overland Park performed illegal abortions in 2003. Howe said the witness, an out-of-state physician and medical school professor of obstetrics and gynecology, is too ill to serve as a witness. It’s the latest twist in a criminal case filed in October 2007 by Howe’s predecessor. The case has been delayed in its early stages by contentious legal disputes between the district attorney’s office and the clinic’s attorneys, which have included two state Supreme Court rulings on pretrial issues. Forty-nine other charges, including the most serious ones – felonies alleging that the clinic falsified records – were dismissed last year. Planned Parenthood has said its clinic committed no wrongdoing and has asked District Judge Stephen Tatum to dismiss the remaining charges. Tatum scheduled another pretrial hearing for Aug. 17. He also directed Howe to respond by then to various requests Planned Parenthood’s attorneys filed with the judge in late March, including several that together seek the dismissal of the remaining criminal charges. Defense attorney Pedro Irigonegaray expressed frustration that Howe hadn’t responded to Planned Parenthood’s court filings after three months and said an additional five weeks represents an unnecessary delay in ending the case. “We believe it’s an unjust delay,” Irigonegaray said after the hearing. Howe said the need to find a new expert made responding to Planned Parenthood’s court filings difficult. After Wednesday’s hearing, he declined to respond to Irigonegaray’s criticism. The district attorney said his office didn’t confirm that the physician was too ill to serve as a witness until March, though Planned Parenthood attorneys and

officials said they knew more than a year ago. Planned Parenthood’s clinic is accused of violating a Kansas law that in 2003 restricted abortions at or after the 22nd week of pregnancy if a doctor determined the fetus was viable. The remaining charges cover 29 abortions. For each, the clinic faces one misdemeanor count of not properly examining whether the fetus was viable and a second misdemeanor count of performing an illegal lateterm abortion. The Planned Parenthood clinic initially faced 107 charges. But in November,

Tatum dismissed 26 misdemeanor counts of failing to maintain reports on individual abortions as required by law and another 23 felony counts of falsifying copies of such reports later, amid an ongoing investigation of abortion providers by the Kansas attorney general’s office. Tatum dismissed the 49 charges at Howe’s request. The district attorney said in court that full, clean copies of reports on the same abortions submitted by the clinic to the state at the time of the procedures had been destroyed by the attorney general’s office in April 2009. The attorney general’s office changed hands after the 2010 elections, and a followup investigation conducted by the Shawnee County sheriff ’s office concluded that while other abortionrelated files were destroyed in 2009, none of the documents involved the Planned Parenthood case. But Howe didn’t back away from his statements after the follow-up investi-

gation, saying the documents from the attorney general’s office that he needed to pursue the 49 charges were missing. Howe’s chief deputy told a Shawnee County sheriff ’s investigator the same thing in a December 2011 interview, according to a summary prepared by the investigator and obtained by The Associated Press through an open records request. But the investigator added that during a 39minute session, Howe and his deputy “had no further information to provide” about the missing documents.

Hutch’s Community Garden vandalized ■ HCF officer noticed pair,

contacted police; several vegetables were missing. BY KRISTEN RODERICK The Hutchinson News

Gardeners who tend plots at the Hutchinson Community Garden don’t sell their produce, but are usually willing to offer a tomato or pepper to those who ask. But on Tuesday when gardener Vickie Pia walked toward her plot at the garden,

near Eastside Cemetery, she noticed several vegetables in her plot missing as well as a pile of discarded produce on the side of Wall Street. Five of the 68 plots were vandalized about 11 p.m. Monday. “We’re sad that people would do that,” she said. “We give away so many things.” Police expect to press charges today against two people suspected of stealing the produce, which police found Monday in a Ford Explorer. “They had a backseat full

of fresh vegetables,” said Hutchinson Police Detective Darrin Cox. Allegedly stolen were pumpkins, cantaloupe, cauliflower, sweet corn, tomatoes, peppers and cucumbers. Some of the vegetables were not yet ripe. Others were past their prime, Pia said. Other plants were pulled up by the roots, so they were ruined. “If they needed it to eat, it’s one thing,” Pia said. “If they took it to sell, that’s not right.” A corrections officer in the

tower at the Hutchinson Correctional Facility saw two people with flashlights in the garden for a long time. The guard notified police. “We’re grateful for whoever was in the tower,” Pia said. One suspect, Tina R. Nienke, 45, was arrested at the scene on a warrant for failure to appear. A male who was with her was not arrested. Neither has been arrested for stealing vegetables. It’s not the first time items have been stolen from the community garden. The veg-

etable cleaning station has been vandalized and water hoses have previously been stolen. On Wednesday, police returned the vegetables to the gardeners. This tight-knit gardening community within Hutchinson plans to continue to keep an eye on one another’s plots. They hope it doesn’t happen again. “We all watch out for each other,” Pia said. “We feel strongly about the work that goes into gardening, and we hope it will be safe for us to have.”

Alignment snag delays walkway BY JOHN GREEN The Hutchinson News

Problems with the spans of a new pedestrian bridge that will cross K-61 at 30th Avenue kept the bridge on the ground Thursday. Contractors will make another attempt to install the 150-foot steel structure today, starting around 10 a.m., again requiring closure of the highway. Trucks hauled three bridge pieces to the site Thursday morning, with plans to bolt it together and raise it into place. When crews attempted to put it together, however,

they ran into problems, said Martin Miller, KDOT South Central Kansas Public Affairs Manager. “There’s a problem with alignment of some of the holes,” Miller said. “They took it back apart. The company that manufactured it had a representative there and they’re trying to determine what can be done.” The contactor set the pieces off to the side of the road to await a determination on what to do. The News was unable to reach officials with Contech Engineered Solutions on Thursday for comment. Miller said late Thursday that crews will make

another attempt today to put the bridge up. Engineers will be on site to supervise any modifications made to the pieces in order to assemble it. “It was really nothing major,” Miller said. “The manufacturer has some ideas on how to resolve it. I don’t know what those are.” The work will close the northbound lanes of K-61 starting about 10 a.m., and they will remain closed during the process. The southbound lanes will be closed for a shorter period when cranes are ready to lift the bridge into place and hold it while it is installed.

All three sections of the pedestrian bridge are seen connected Thursday. Because the bridge was not lining up correctly, however, it was not installed Thursday.

Stabbing case advances after postponements BY DARCY GRAY The Hutchinson News

A man charged with second-degree murder in the stabbing death last year of a Spring Hill resident is now scheduled for a plea hearing in Reno County District Court. Court records indiALVAREZ cate 21-yearold Aaron M. Alvarez, charged with killing 23-yearold Allen M. Frank last November in Hutchinson, will appear July 23 before District Judge Joe McCarville to enter a plea in the case. For Frank’s parents, the possibility of a plea in the case is a relief. John and Kimberly Frank expressed frustration over the nine continuances in the case while it was on a status docket before Judge McCarville. The couple attended court every time a status hearing was scheduled for Alvarez. John Frank said he was frustrated with both the prosecution and the defense,

and explained that the couple’s frustration “came from a lack of keeping us involved” in what was going on in the case. “It’s a big weight off of our shoulders to know the process is moving forward, and it wasn’t just being brushed aside,” he said Thursday. “It gives us hope the judicial system is at work. “We’re just going to continue to pray that justice will be served.” Alvarez, who is from the Tulsa, Okla., area, had been staying on a sofa in the basement of a friend’s Hutchinson home when the stabbing occurred in November 2011, District Attorney Keith Schroeder previously told The News. Hutchinson police responded late Nov. 28, 2011, to a home in the 100 block of East Carpenter Street, where Alvarez was staying. Authorities have not reported what prompted a quarrel between Alvarez and Frank, but Frank suffered a stab wound to the abdomen on Nov. 28, 2011, and died on Thanksgiving Day after being flown to a Wichita hospital. The second-degree-murder charge alleges the killing

was intentional but not premeditated. Stephen Maxwell, senior assistant district attorney, said the continuances in the case were requested by the defense. Alvarez’s attorney, Chief Public Defender Sarah McKinnon, could not be reached for comment Thursday. Alvarez has been held in the Butler County jail, and Judge McCarville acknowledged that defense attorneys need time to consult with clients who are out of county. The judge also noted he considers several criteria before granting a postponement in a case, including whether a defendant is “wandering around” out of jail amid a pending case and whether allowing attorneys more time could resolve the case without a trial. “It’s stressful for families not knowing when it’s going to be resolved, but if it will be resolved, and there won’t be any appeals … that will be a lot more closure for them.” Judge McCarville said he would rather continue a case on the status docket than set a preliminary hearing date and have to continue a preliminary hearing date two or three times.

“If the case is set for a preliminary hearing and it’s not ready, then we’ve wasted time with subpoenas and all of the cops and citizens who have taken time off from work,” McCarville said. In the Alvarez case, attorneys were working “from the very beginning” on plea negotiations, he said. Some Reno County jail inmates started being housed out of county after an attempted escape at the Reno County jail annex a couple of years ago, when the fire marshal indicated that “only a certain level of inmates” could be housed in the annex, said Reno County Sheriff Randy Henderson. The county jail and annex can house a combined total of about 110 inmates, but the current average daily jail population is 147, Henderson said. “We work with attorneys if they need to talk to a client, or need someone for a hearing,” he said. “But when we get a last-minute notice to get a client for a hearing, well, if we could get a week’s notice, we’ll get them out here.” “Part of it’s on us, but part of it’s on the attorneys, also. Communication is key to feeding all of that.”

Penn State students gather around a television in the student HUB on Penn State University’s main campus to listen to the news conference held by former FBI director Louis Freeh after the release of his report on the Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse scandal Thursday in State College, Pa.

Penn ●From Page A1 of bad publicity. “The idea that any sane, responsible adult would knowingly cover up for a child predator is impossible to accept. The far more realistic conclusion is that many people didn’t fully understand what was happening and underestimated or misinterpreted events,” the family said. “Sandusky was a great deceiver. He fooled everyone.” The findings could have consequences for the criminal case against Penn State athletic director Tim Curley and retired senior vice president Gary Schultz, who are awaiting trial on charges of failing to report abuse and lying to a grand jury. In addition, the Pennsylvania attorney general’s office is still investigating the scandal, and others could be charged. Freeh and his team, which included lawyers and former law enforcement officials, interviewed more than 430 people and reviewed more than 3.5 million emails, handwritten notes and other documents. Paterno died before he could be interviewed but testified before a grand jury. Sandusky is awaiting sentencing after being convicted last month of sexually abusing 10 boys over 15 years. The investigation focused largely on the university officials’ decision not to go to child-welfare authorities in 2001 after a graduate coaching assistant told Paterno that he had seen Sandusky – a former assistant coach himself – sexually abusing a boy in the locker room showers. Paterno and the others gave various explanations for their decision, saying among other things that they misunderstood the allegations, that they did the best they could and that this was the “humane” way to handle the matter. But the Freeh report said: “It is more reasonable to conclude that, in order to avoid the consequences of bad publicity, the most powerful leaders at the university – Spanier, Schultz, Paterno and Curley – repeatedly concealed critical facts relating to Sandusky’s child abuse from authorities, the university’s board of trustees, the Penn State community and the public at large.” A number of other factors contributed to the decision to keep quiet, the

Former FBI director Louis Freeh speaks about the Freeh Report during a news conference Thursday in Philadelphia. report found, including “a culture of reverence for the football program that is ingrained at all levels of the campus community.” Spreading the blame around, the report also said the trustees failed to exercise oversight and didn’t inquire deeply into the matter when they finally learned of it. Spanier’s lawyers Thursday denied Spanier took part in a cover-up and said Freeh’s conclusion “is simply not supported by the facts.” Spanier was ousted along with Paterno four days after Sandusky’s arrest last November. An attorney for Curley had no immediate comment, and a lawyer for Schultz did not return messages. Freeh said officials had opportunities in 1998 and 2001 to step in. In 1998, police investigated after a woman complained that her son had showered with Sandusky. The investigation did not result in charges. But the emails show Paterno clearly followed the 1998 case, Freeh said. University officials took no action at the time to limit Sandusky’s access to campus. Then, after the 2001 report of Sandusky sexually abusing a boy in the showers, university officials barred him from bringing children to campus but decided not to report him to child-welfare authorities. Some of the most damning evidence against Paterno consists of handwritten notes and emails that portray him as deeply involved in that decision. According to the report, Spanier, Schultz and Curley drew up an “action plan” that called for reporting Sandusky to the state Department of Public Welfare. But Curley later said in an email that he changed his mind about the plan “after giving it more thought and

talking it over with Joe.” Instead, Curley proposed to offer Sandusky “professional help.” In an email, Spanier agreed with that course of action but noted “the only downside for us is if the message isn’t (heard) and acted upon and we then become vulnerable for not having reported it.” Freeh suggested it was Paterno’s intervention that kept administrators from going to authorities. “Based on the evidence, the only known intervening factor ... was Mr. Paterno’s Feb. 26 conversation with Mr. Curley,” Freeh said. Michael Boni, a lawyer for a boy known as Victim 1, called the report a “serious indictment against Penn State’s culture and environment of protecting at all costs the football program.” Karen Peetz, chairwoman of the trustees, said the board “accepts full responsibility for the failures that occurred.” She said the panel believes Paterno’s “61 years of excellent service to the university is now marred” by the scandal. The report chronicled a culture of silence that extended from the president down to the janitors in the football building. Even before 1998, football staff members and coaches regularly saw Sandusky showering with boys but never told their superiors about it. In 2000, after a janitor saw Sandusky performing oral sex on a boy in the team shower, he told his co-workers. None of them went to police for fear of losing their jobs. Reporting the assault “would have been like going against the president of the United States in my eyes,” a janitor told Freeh’s investigators. “I know Paterno has so much power, if he wanted to get rid of someone, I would have been gone.”

clude Sontag’s group and the Kansas Chamber of Commerce. Despite earlier signs he would stay out of the primary elections, Brownback has quietly asserted himself by endorsing conservatives. He appeared at a fundraiser for several freshmen House candidates in Johnson County in June. His return shows that moderate Republicans know the battle for the Senate has turned fierce. “The moderates who once roamed the plains very freely are now down to a very limited amount of pasture,” said Joe Aistrup, a political science professor at Kansas State University. “If they don’t step it up and raise the money necessary to compete against the likes of Brownback, the chamber and Americans for Prosperity, their days are numbered.”

Kan. reaches $1M tobacco settlement THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

TOPEKA – Kansas has reached a $1 million settlement with a tobacco company. The Topeka Capital-Journal reports that the settlement calls for Grand River Enterprises to put $672,000 into escrow funds and pay the state $336,000 in penalties and reimbursement for

attorney fees and expenses. Attorney General Derek Schmidt’s office says the settlement stems from a lawsuit Kansas filed against GRE in 2008, saying the company wasn’t participating in a settlement agreement between states and tobacco companies. Schmidt says the $336,000 in penalties will go to the state’s general fund.

Next year, Hutchinson will host the International Ulster Project Conference. The project is available in 32 states and Banning said Hutchinson had a very good program.

Typically, the class consists of six boys and six girls from Northern Ireland and a matching American group. Banning said because of increased demand from girls, Hutchinson this year is hosting eight girls and six boys. The Irish participants are paired with an American teenager of the

The Northern Irish campers and counselors leave Hutchinson July 27, after nearly a month of staying here. Beattie, who participated as a teenager in 2006, said the best part of being a counselor is watching the campers interact and grow. “They come out of themselves so much more and you get so excited because they’re talking and getting confidence,” Beattie said. “They’re all really getting along.” Banning, who hosted a teen in 2009, said her oldest son recently took a trip to Northern Ireland to visit his Ulster Project partner. She said the American participants learned and grew just as much as their Northern Irish counterparts. “The American kids participate as much as they (Northern Irish teens) do as far as breaking down walls, learning how to get along and conflict resolution go,” Banning said. “The project helps build leaders in our community.”

Debate emerges over year-round schools BY BETH J. HARPAZ Associated Press

NEW YORK – By the time summer’s over, many families can’t wait for school to start. Working parents have struggled to find camps or babysitting, kids are bored and teachers fret over “summer slide” – the academic losses that research shows hits kids from poor families hardest. Year-round schooling might seem like the antidote, and in some parts of the country, schools with just a few weeks off are not uncommon. In Raleigh, N.C. and other parts of Wake County, for instance, July 9 was the first day of school for 26,000 students on a yearround calendar. But year-round schools, which once seemed like a panacea for everything from low test scores to overcrowding, have proven to be a mixed bag. And some places that once embraced them – including Las Vegas, Salt Lake City and parts of California – have returned to traditional calendars. Research on whether learning improves in yearround schools is mixed, with some year-round schools reporting gains and others finding that kids on traditional schedules do better. Esther Fusco, a professor at Hofstra University’s School of Education, Health and Human Services, says that overall, “research suggests that students in high-needs districts and those who have disabilities do better in yearround learning situations. This is logical because these students do not have the down time that occurs over the summer. But the results are not very significant. I have not seen any study that shows students greatly improve.” Parents unfamiliar with the year-round concept may not realize that kids on these schedules usually have the

same number of school days – about 180 a year – as kids in regular schools. But vacations are distributed differently. So instead of having 10 or 12 weeks off in summer, kids might have a series of three-week breaks. Or they might have six weeks off in summer with additional two-week vacations. For parents who need child care, those repeated short breaks can actually mean more headaches than one long summer break. Year-round schools also typically cost more to run, thanks to air-conditioning, extra transportation costs and other expenses. And it’s harder to make major repairs when classrooms are empty only for short periods. Salt Lake City ended its year-round schools in 2011 after an analysis showed that comparable local schools with traditional calendars had better test scores, according to Jason R. Olsen, spokesman for the Salt Lake City School District. Going back to the regular calendar also saves the district money, Olsen said. And yet, the year-round calendar has its fans. A survey showed that a majority of Salt Lake City parents preferred year-round schools to the regular calendar. “They liked having two weeks away from school every nine weeks,” said Olsen. Shannon Oelrich of Cambridge, Minn., loves having her kids in a year-round school that’s offered as an option in her district on a first come, first served basis. “I think it’s good,” she said. “The kids don’t get as bored for the long break in the summer, and it’s good to have a couple of breaks in the middle of the year. They’re happier. And when they spend less time away from school, the teachers don’t waste so much time reviewing.”

Some year-round schools also use the short breaks for enrichment or remediation, which can keep struggling students on track throughout the year rather than dumping them in summer school. The year-round concept is also popular among some charter and private schools, where it’s seen as a way to make sure kids don’t lose ground during long breaks. But Ann Barrett took her two kids out of a year-round program in Jacksonville, Fla., in the early 1990s, partly because she had an older child in high school on a traditional calendar and they had no vacations together. She transferred her younger two to a magnet school that went by the regular calendar, but she said that within a few years, the year-round schools in her district returned to the traditional schedule because “they never had any success to point to. It’s one of those things. They try it for a couple years, then go back to the regular thing.” In districts where yearround calendars are adopted to ease overcrowding, children are placed on what’s called a multitrack system with staggered vacations. This can be a huge costsaver: The kids are never all there at the same time, so the school can accommodate more students in the same space. In California, multitracking began in the ‘80s as a way to cope with “an upturn in elementary grade enrollments – the baby boom echo,” said Fred Yeager, a spokesman for the California Department of Education. Multitracking meant the state didn’t have to build as many new schools, and the shorter summer breaks were thought to combat “the learning brain drain,” he said. But the number of multitrack schools has since gone down, to 95 from sever-

al hundred in past years, Yeager said. In Wake County, N.C., where 50 public schools are on the year-round system, “we definitely use the yearround calendar to maximize space and address some capacity issues,” said spokesman Mike Charbonneau. “We have had a rapidly growing school system for the last 10 years.” Clark County, Nev., which is the Las Vegas school district, also used multitrack year-round schedules to cope with overcrowding. But enrollment has been falling in the area, and all the schools there have gone back to traditional calendars. Up-to-date statistics on year-round schools are hard to come by. The most recent data from the National Center for Education Statistics found 14 percent of U.S. public schools were on yearround calendars in 2008, with the largest percentage in the South and West. Billee Bussard, who runs an organization in Florida called Summer Matters, says there’s another piece to the argument against yearround schools. “The yearround calendar limits the window of opportunity for parents to give their children learning experiences outside the school walls,” she says, echoing many parents who cite the importance of extended family time, opportunities for summer camp or travel, and summer jobs that help teens earn money and build resumes. West Virginia has a few schools with what is referred to in the state as the “balanced calendar” – meaning breaks more evenly distributed throughout the year. In June, the statewide West Virginia PTA passed a resolution supporting balanced calendars as a way to combat summer learning loss.

guide future development and construction projects. The strongest policies are those that say a community “will” build streets with sidewalks and bike lanes. Other policies say the city “should” or “may” consider those amenities in its street projects. LaPlante, who was Chicago’s traffic engineer for 30 years, was hoping the group would appoint a steering committee to draft a policy for the City Council’s consideration within the next 30 days. But City Manager John Deardoff said that might be tough, and he’d be happy if the council had something to look over by the end of the year. Deardoff said he thinks they could wind up with a policy that says the city may have a dialogue on whether it should include sidewalks and bike lanes when it considers each project. “But if the City Council has an appetite for ‘shall’ – we haven’t got that far,” he added. Nonetheless, he said the workshop was a good first step. “We have a lot of work left, but we’re starting to build an advocacy group or

a collation to work for these projects,” he said. “I think it’s going to take time. Not 30 days. It’s important that we get a lot of input so that we know what we’re getting into. That way we end up with a good working document we can live with. … Ultimately the council will decide these things, whether we spend $2.3 million on a street with sidewalks or $2.1 million without sidewalks.” LaPlante said he thought the meeting was invigorating because the participants were not just advocates but also the people who make things happen. The group included four of the five City Council members and the heads of several city departments, including engineering, public works, planning and parks and facilities in addition to representatives of the Hutchinson Community Foundation, the Chamber of Commerce, USD 308, city advisory boards and people with disabilities. LaPlante said there are a lot of things the city can do to create more complete streets without spending a lot of money. For instance, he said, the city could create bike paths along some

of the city’s wide streets by putting those streets on a “road diet.” That involves no more than re-striping a four-lane street, leaving one lane going each way, a left turn lane in the middle and room for a 6-foot-wide bicycle lane on each side of the street. “You can do different things in different places,” LaPlante said. “You can do things as you have the opportunity. When you resurface a street, you have to put the lane lines back. You just put them in different places. And you keep building it up piece by piece.” Several people said that Avenue A, between K-61 and Main Street, would be an ideal subject for such a road diet. Crossing wide streets on foot also can be made safer by putting a median in the middle, where the pedestrians can stop if they don’t have time to get all the way to the other side before the light changes, LaPlante said. On a wide street without much traffic, LaPlante said, drivers tend to go faster than the speed limit because they sense that the road is built to go faster. With fewer lanes, he said, they’ll go slower, which will reduce accidents by 34 percent, reduce injury rates by 68 percent and reduce the likelihood of fatal pedestrian accidents from 85 percent at 40 mph to 45 percent at 30 mph. But he said that most important statistic is that one-third of Americans don’t drive. That includes all children under 16, 21 percent of all adults over age 65 and many low-income residents who can’t afford a car. They still have to get around, and they do so on foot or on bicycles. “If we make the streets safe for 8- and 80-year-olds, we take care of the people in between too,” LaPlante said.

also discussed how traffic has increased along 56th Avenue. Now, four on and off ramps feed onto 56th Avenue and Crockford said many vehicles accelerated as they traveled along the roadway. “I believe 56th street is more dangerous now,” Crockford said. “Because they’ve widened it, people think you can go 65 (miles per hour). We have neighbors with small children.” Because residential homes are appraised mainly by market and cost value, Reedy said the appraiser’s office wouldn’t be able to take any action likely for a number of years. She said the office would regulate how much houses in the area are sold for and would make adjustments accordingly. “If they don’t sell, that’s going to tell us something,” Reedy said. So far, no homes or properties by the highway have

been sold since K-61 opened. Valerie Pryor, a real estate agent with Plaza Astle Realty, is selling the only home in the area for sale, which went on the market in late June. The homeowner hasn’t seemed concerned about the highway, she said, and because so many factors go into the value of the home, it would be very difficult to tell how K-61 would or would not influence the sale. “It (home value) all depends on price and condition and so much more that goes into it,” Pryor said. “Time will tell as more properties become available.” Commissioner Dan Deming asked Reedy to hold the meeting after he received a call from a resident asking him to go to his property and listen to the noise from the highway. “Although it wasn’t ear

piercing, I could tell he had more noise than he had before,” Deming said. Reedy surveyed the area last week, taking into account properties one-half mile east and west from the highway from 30th Avenue to the county line. She said she estimated only a dozen or so houses would be significantly affected by the highway, but she didn’t get out of her car to hear the noise. “If I bought it (a property near the highway) for the seclusion and privacy, I would be irritated,” Reedy said. Properties are appraised annually and Reedy said taxpayers can appeal their property value to their county appraiser twice a year. Additionally, she said residents were welcome to protest their appraisal, ask for someone in her office to reappraise his or her house or stop by her office with questions.

●From Page A1 a large number of people were still trying to make their way along the street. Doug Rice, who was in a wheelchair, came across wheelchair ramps that directed him out into traffic coming from behind him before he could cross a street. In other cases, the ramps had 1- or 2-inch lips that were difficult to force his wheelchair over. And at the intersection of 17th and Plum, Rice came to the end of a sidewalk and a 6inch curb he had to get over to get to where the sidewalk resumed 10 feet away. Returning to the Cosmosphere, members of the group had all kinds of ideas for improvements. The biggest and most popular was taking advantage of the wide right-of-way along the south side of 17th to create a 10-foot wide sidewalk that could be used by walkers and bicyclists from Plum to Severance. But at this point, that’s wishful thinking. “Complete Streets” is the idea that a town can be a more livable and attractive community if streets are more than just paved roads for cars and trucks. They should be designed to accommodate all users – including pedestrians and people with disabilities on sidewalks and in crosswalks and bicyclists in designated bike lanes or on side paths. The workshop – led by John LaPlante, a traffic engineer with T.Y. Lin International, and Phillip Pugliese, the bicycle coordinator for Outdoor Chattanooga – was designed to acquaint the group with the benefits of “Complete Streets” and launch the city on a path toward adopting a formal policy to

Noise ●From Page A1 “I want them to come sit on my back deck,” Crockford said. Crockford, concerned about what noise the highway could bring, said she asked KDOT to come and take noise level readings at her property in 2008. March 2008 readings taken from her home at 4:50 to 5:20 a.m. and 2:12 to 2:40 p.m. showed no significant noise impact. She said she’d like to see city officials request another reading of the entire area now that the highway is open. “I know the highway needed to be built for progress in community. I can deal with that,” Crockford said. “But, it changed the environment of the northeast corner of Hutchinson.” People at the meeting

She conceded that “we probably do” need to list the asset. “We’ll sure look at it,” Pauls said, and file an amended Substantial Interests form if necessary. Potentially, Pauls could be subject to a fine from zero up to $5,000, but the Kansas Governmental Ethics Commission’s next meeting is not until Aug. 15 – eight days after the Aug. 7 primary election. If the ethics commission found the complaint sufficient, the issue would advance to further scrutiny and testimony to determine probable cause, with the ethics commission’s next meeting occurring Sept. 19. Carey’s complaint is more evidence of gayrights activists’ drive to oust Pauls, who has been in the Legislature since 1991 and has opposed their efforts to change state laws. Carey is president of the Kansas LGBT Democratic Caucus, affiliated with the Kansas Democratic Party and representing the concerns of gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender members. Erich Bishop, the Hutchinson resident challenging Pauls in the Aug. 7 Democratic primary, said he was not aware of Carey’s complaint. “I know they all know each other well,” said Pauls. “They all hang around together,” she said. Both Bishop and the lone Republican in the 102nd District race, Dakota Bass, Hutchinson, have been active in the Kansas Equality Coalition. The first property uproar involving Pauls arose in June, after Pauls hastily changed her residency to a former church she and her husband owned, in order to be in the newly redrawn 102nd District. Thomas Witt, executive director of the Kansas

Equality Coalition, sought unsuccessfully to have Pauls’ candidacy ruled invalid. During a June 19 hearing in Topeka on her residency, Pauls noted that she owned a duplex just across the alley from the church. They rented one unit but kept the other unit empty to accommodate visiting relatives, Pauls said June 19. The duplex is directly south of the church, 101 E. 11th Ave. Pauls and her husband bought the duplex in 2006, and she hasn’t mentioned it on any Substantial Interests forms filed from 2007 onward, said Carey. Reno County appraises the duplex and land at $44,200. The woman living in the rented unit described her rent as “a little,” “not a lot.” Rep. Pauls said the renter was living in the unit when the Paulses bought the property. “We pay water and sewer,” Pauls said. The Substantial Interests form requires lawmakers or candidates to list any business interests “including land used for income ... in which either you or your spouse has owned within the preceding 12 months a legal or equitable interest exceeding $5,000 or 5%, whichever is less.” Pauls, an attorney, put her name to a declaration annually that she had examined the report “and to the best of my knowledge and belief is a true, correct and complete statement of all of my substantial interests and other matters required by law. I understand that the intentional failure to file this statement as required by law or intentionally filing a false statement is a class B misdemeanor.” “Was it intentional? An oversight? A mistake?” said Carol Williams, executive director of the Kansas Governmental Ethics Commission, voicing the questions they would raise when considering a complaint.

LONDON – It’s only rock ’n’ roll, but the Rolling Stones definitely like it. The band celebrated the 50th anniversary of its first gig at a bash in London Thursday, and despite being well over retirement age, the Stones have no plans to quit. “All of this has sort of brought us back together, and we’ll see what comes out of it,” said guitarist Keith Richards, who revealed that the Stones have begun rehearsing for new live shows that could come later this year. It all means Mick Jagger may need to rethink the words he sang more than 45 years ago in “Mother’s Little Helper” – “What a drag it is getting old.” The group is marking its half-century with no letup in its productivity or rock ’n’ roll style. At 68, Jagger is still the cool, rich frontman of the world’s most successful rock band. Now in their late 60s and early 70s, the band members celebrated the anniversary by attending a retrospective photo exhibition at London’s Somerset House. Jagger, Richards, Ronnie Wood and Charlie Watts mingled with a mixed crowd of rockers, writers and hangers-on – from Simply Red singer Mick Hucknall to playwright Tom Stoppard – at a launch party for the exhibition. The show, which opens to the public today, charts the band’s career from their first official photo shoot in 1963 – young mop-tops lined up against a row of red phone boxes – to their monster ’80s and ’90s stadium tours. “You can see when you look at the photos how we couldn’t give a hoot about anything,” Jagger said with rock ’n’ roll pride. “You can just sort of tell by the attitude of those photographs how we didn’t care.” Jagger spoke to The Associated Press 50 years to the day after the young R&B band played London’s Marquee Club. Taking a name from a song by bluesman Muddy Waters, they were billed as “The Rollin’ Stones” – the “g” came later. The lineup for the gig was vocalist Jagger, guitarists Richards and Brian Jones, bassist Dick Taylor, pianist Ian Stewart and Mick Avory on drums. Taylor and Avory soon left the lineup, while Stewart switched to a backup role; drummer Watts joined in 1963 and guitarist Wood in 1975. The band had its first hit,

The Beatles split up in 1970, but the Stones are still going strong – something Jagger attributes in part to an early grounding in versatility. He said that at that first gig, “the audience was college students having a night out, and they weren’t particularly demonstrative, but they appreciated and en-

In this case, his fall into the Earth’s core spurs the formation of the continents. It’s this kind of thing that makes the universe “Ice Age” pleasant: The history of the world is shaped not by things like asteroids or political leaders, but by pratfalls and peanuts. But such moments of dialogue-free mania are only brief respites in “Continental Drift,” which is otherwise overstuffed with loud action scenes and the yam-

joyed the set. That was our audience, it was more of a college audience, art-school kind of crowd. A few months later we were playing in front of 11-year-olds who were screaming at us. “Even in the very early days, we played to a lot of different kinds of audiences.” Music critic John Aizlewood said the Stones’ contribution to rock ’n’ roll is “immeasurable.” “They are a founding father of rock music as we know it,” he said. “Other bands have tried and not pulled off that amount of sexiness, allied to a kind of street-fighting menace.” Aizlewood said the

Rolling Stones have endured where other bands have split because “they are smart enough to put the band ahead of the individuals, despite their collective egos.” He said they are also canny businessmen, and realized early on that “once you get to a certain level, if you maintain your live performance, you can play stadiums forever.” The Stones have sold more than 200 million records, with hits including “(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction,” “Street Fighting Man” and “You Can’t Always Get What You Want.” But in recent years much of their income has come

from touring. Their last global tour, “A Bigger Bang,” earned more than $500 million between 2005 and 2007. The band has famously gone through rocky periods. Founding member Brian Jones drowned in his swimming pool in 1969. Jagger and Richards are both creative catalysts and sparring partners. But something – Richards calls it “chemistry” – keeps them going. “I’d bottle it if I knew what it was,” he said. Band mate Wood agreed. “When we do get together, no matter what’s going on ... something changes and it all channels through and comes out in the music,” he said.

mer of celebrity voices. The main players remain the same: Manny the wooly mammoth (Ray Romano), his wife, Ellie, a mammoth raised by possums (Queen Latifah), Diego the sabertoothed tiger (Denis Leary) and Sid the sloth (John Leguizamo, with a slobbering lisp). Their gang includes others, too, but the focus here turns to Manny and Ellie’s teenage daughter, Peaches (Keke Palmer). When the plates start shifting, the breaking land separates Manny, Diego and Sid from the rest of the clan, sending them out to sea on an iceberg. There, they encounter a villainous pirate orangutan. And it’s here – at first mention of the pirate orangutan – where it’s fitting to remark that the “Ice Age” franchise has never been a carefully created world

based on a sensible fictional reality where characterbased comedy unfolds naturally. It makes slapdash grabs for attention and the franchise is compelled by little more than further box office receipts. That said, if you’re going to force a villainous pirate orangutan named Captain Gutt into your wooly mammoth cartoon, you can do no better than to call on Peter Dinklage to voice him. His menacing baritone adds heft to the movie. Most notable among them is Shira, also a saber-toothed cat, voiced by Jennifer Lopez, and love interest for Diego. Wanda Sykes makes more of an impression as Granny, Sid’s elderly relative who’s dropped off with him at the start of the film. While the stranded group attempts to make their way home, the storyline among

the others is standard teenage stuff, as Peaches struggles to fit in with the cool kids (voiced by Drake, Nicki Minaj and Heather Morris), an annoying group of young wooly mammoths who say “sick” and “burn.” Peer pressure pulls Peaches away from her less popular mole hog friend, Louis (Josh Gad), whose meek, lovesick earnestness makes Tiny Tim look like a jerk. “Continental Drift” is directed by Steve Martino and Mike Thurmeier (who co-directed the last installment), from a screenplay by Jason Fuchs and Michael Berg. They collectively lead the gang through the shifting tectonics of family and romantic life, inevitably finding predictable lessons along the way. But “Continental Drift” is best when it leaves poignancy to the folks at Pixar.

Diaz tried to sell a potentially embarrassing film to the Grammy-winning musician. Wonder’s attorney, William Briggs II, says he watched portions of the video and that Walker made “slanderous” statements about the musician and his mother. Griggs says the footage also included Wonder’s son, whom the singer is protective of.

KU cancer facility gains NCI approval

Drug case expands to 101 counts, 35 indicted THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

BY BILL DRAPER Associated Press

KANSAS CITY – A decade after declaring its goal of becoming a National Cancer Institute-designated facility, the University of Kansas Cancer Center earned the prestigious title, bringing with it the potential for millions of dollars in additional research funding. With the official announcement Thursday, the KU Cancer Center in Kansas City, Kan., also will be one of 67 facilities across the country that can offer treatments not available at facilities that don’t’ have the NCI designation. At Thursday’s news conference, Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius praised the efforts of the cancer center and those involved in achieving a goal set in 2002, a year before she took over as Kansas governor. “Cancer centers are our country’s elite cancer research facilities,” she said, “selected through a rigorous process by the National Cancer Institute, one of the National Institutes of Health. They serve as America’s engine of discovery about the nature of cancer and the development of more effective

approaches to prevention, diagnosis and treatment.” The NCI – part of the HHS – doled out nearly $3.9 billion in federal grants in 2011, the most recent year figures are available. Roughly $265 million were support grants earmarked solely for NCI-designated cancer centers, ranging from $720,000 in Hawaii to $13.5 million to New York. Brooke Hardison, a spokeswoman for the NCI, said affiliated cancer centers tend to receive more than the support grants and are attractive in competitive bidding because of their NCI status. Sebelius and several other speakers commended the efforts of the cancer center’s director, Dr. Roy Jensen, who was hired in 2004 to lead the university’s efforts to earn NCI designation. Jensen, who was nearly in tears when he talked about the sacrifices his family made moving from Nashville, Tenn., to Kansas City, praised the bipartisan support for the center’s mission. “One of the things I’m most proud of is the fact that support crosses party lines,” he said. “I think that’s a recognition of the fact that cancer doesn’t discriminate.” While the NCI designation

is expected to bring economic benefits to the state and boost its standing in health care and biosciences, a former cancer patient said Thursday that the real winners are patients who won’t have to travel out of state to receive cutting-edge treatments. Bill Whitaker, 59, was diagnosed in 2004 with Stage 4 cancer of the neck, and said he took part in a clinic trial eight years ago at the KU Cancer Center after being told his illness was terminal. The tumor virtually disappeared after two rounds of chemotherapy, radiation and oral medication, and has not returned. He now volunteers at the cancer center, where he helped start a support group six years ago. He said many of the patients find encouragement just as important as any medical procedures. “Anytime you’re told you have cancer, your whole world stops,” Whitaker said. “I don’t care what kind of cancer it is.” In a statement earlier Thursday, fellow Kansas Republican Sen. Pat Roberts noted the center’s efforts to earn the NCI designation “created 1,123 jobs and had a regional economic impact of $453 million.”

Secretary Tom Vilsack this week announced that rural electric cooperatives and utilities in 15 states will receive loan guarantees to make improvements to generation and transmission facilities and implement smart grid technologies. With this funding, USDA Rural Development moves closer to reaching Secretary Vilsack’s goal to fund more than $250 million for smart grid technologies, and includes support for more than $10 million to help utilities make efficiency improvements to the electric grid and help consumers lower their electric bills. In Kansas, Ninnescah Rural Electric Cooperative Association will receive $9.67 million in financing to build and improve 410 miles of distribution line in Kiowa, Pratt and Edwards

Counties and make other system improvements in Barber County. More than 350 rural Kansas electrical customers will be served by the project. The loan includes $550,000 in smart grid projects, which consist of installing smart meters that allows the company to track real-time electrical usage. Ed Wiltse, General Manager at Ninnescah Rural Electric Cooperative Association, stated that the smart grid will assist the cooperative in locating outages and restoring power quickly, plus the cooperative can efficiently connect and disconnect meters from the office. The $287 million in loan guarantees are provided by USDA Rural Development’s Rural Utilities Service (RUS). – From staff, wire reports


For example, women ranked the 1997 funeral of Princess Diana as the fourth most memorable event, while men put that at No. 23. Women ranked last year’s death of Whitney Houston at No. 5, with men judging it No. 21. Similarly, the 2003 bombing of Baghdad at the start of the Iraq War was seen as the No. 14 most impactful moment by men, and No. 37 among women. Men were also far more struck by boxer Mike Tyson biting off a piece of Evander Holyfield’s ear. The passage of time has also diluted some moments once thought as unforgettable, simply because succeeding generations have no personal memory of them. Man’s first moon landing in 1969 ranked No. 21. Age also made a big difference in the survey. JFK’s assassination was the second-most impactful TV event among people 55 and over, while for those between 18 and 34, it was the death of Osama bin Laden. Young people also ranked Barack Obama’s Election Night speech in 2008 at No. 3, while that didn’t move older viewers quite as much (No. 24). Simply because of their age, events like the JFK assassination, President Nixon’s resignation and the moon landing didn’t register at all among viewers 18 to 34. The oldest event to appear in their rankings was the 1980 shooting of John Lennon. The study was based on an online questionnaire of 1,077 adults selected as a scientific sample from among Nielsen’s panel of people measured for television ratings. It was conducted Feb. 15-17 this year. The study could be a good baseline for future looks at how television impacts viewers, said Paul Lindstrom, senior vice president for custom research at Nielsen. “I’d like to see these done on a periodic basis going forward,” he said.

●From Page A8 11 tragedy was nearly twice as impactful as the secondranked moment, which was the coverage of Hurricane Katrina in 2005. Minutes after the first airplane struck New York’s World Trade Center on a late summer morning, television networks began covering the events continuously and stayed with them for days. The other biggest TV events, in order, were the 1995 verdict in O.J. Simpson’s murder trial, the Challenger space shuttle explosion in 1986 and the death of Osama bin Laden last year, the survey found. Sony was interested in the study for clues on consumer interests and behaviors and found “that television is really the grandmother of all the social devices,” said Brian Siegel, vice president of television business for the company. Going into the study, Siegel said he had anticipated that entertainment events like the final episode of “M-A-S-H” (ranked No. 42), the Beatles’ appearance on “The Ed Sullivan Show” (No. 43) and the “Who shot J.R.?” episode of “Dallas” (No. 44) would rank higher. Instead, television coverage of news events made the biggest difference in viewers’ lives. The Super Bowl is annually the most-watched TV event, with this year’s game between the New York Giants and New England Patriots setting a record with 111 million viewers. The memories don’t seem to linger, however: the topranked Super Bowl Sunday event in Sony’s study came in 2004 and had nothing to do with football. It was Janet Jackson’s wardrobe malfunction (No. 26). Men and women agreed on the three most impactful television events – Sept. 11, Katrina and Simpson. After that, some of the interests diverged.

WICHITA – Nearly three dozen people were indicted Thursday for what federal prosecutors say was a ring that supplied about $17 million worth of “highgrade” drugs to customers, including marijuana to members of last year’s University of Kansas basketball team. The U.S. Attorney’s office for Kansas said the 101count indictment involves 35 defendants, most of them from Kansas. The defendants supplied drugs to residents in Johnson and Douglas counties, prosecu-

tors said. At a hearing last month, assistant U.S. attorney Terra Moorhead said one of the defendants, a 32-yearold Overland Park man, supplied marijuana to multiple members of the Jayhawks’ 2010-11 basketball squad. The university would not comment on the case then and officials with the school did not immediately return a phone message seeking comment Thursday. The university said then that its internal drug-testing policy requires all freshman or new transfer

student athletes to take a drug test “within a reasonable amount of time” after arriving on campus. All teams that qualify for postseason play also may be subject to testing. The indictment stemmed from an original federal complaint filed in June that accused 25 people and included only one count. The new charges including conspiracy to possess and distribute more than 5 kilograms of cocaine and 1,000 kilos of marijuana, conspiracy to commit money laundering and unlawful possession of firearms.

Cheyenne Bottoms residents urged to look out for wanted Oregon man BY DARCY GRAY The Hutchinson News

GREAT BEND – The search for an Oregon parole violator who reportedly led Kansas officers on a highspeed chase last week has moved to Wichita, where police have recovered a pickup stolen from Barton County. The Barton County Sheriff ’s Office alerted residents around the Cheyenne Bottoms JAYNE area to be on the lookout for 30-yearold Michael Aaron Jayne after he reportedly led officers on a high-speed chase July 5 in Rooks County. A Barton County resident reported spotting someone matching Jayne’s description walking Friday near the rest area on K-156, and a pickup stolen from Rooks County was discovered near Cheyenne Bottoms. This prompted a manhunt on the east side of Cheyenne Bottoms that involved both

state and local law enforcement agencies, but the search was called off Sunday. Authorities think Jayne eluded officers by hiding in wooded areas in both Rooks and Barton counties, said Tod Hileman, public resource officer with the Kansas Highway Patrol. The patrol’s infrared technology was ineffective in a search for Jayne because of the high temperatures, Hileman said. Another vehicle, a 1998 Dodge Dakota pickup, was reported stolen Friday night from the Barton Hills area, and Barton County Undersheriff Larry Holliday confirmed the stolen pickup was found Monday in Wichita and turned over to the Wichita Police Department. Jayne is wanted by U.S. marshals for a parole violation in Oregon, Holliday said, but he did not have additional details. According to Oregon Department of Corrections records, Jayne is listed as absconding from post-release supervision after serving time for a felony assault in Marion County, Ore., and

an attempted assault with body armor in Klamath County. The Herald and News in Oregon previously reported that Jayne, of Redding, Calif., was charged with attempting to kill an Oregon State Police trooper by running into the trooper’s vehicle with his car head-on, on March 25, 2009. Jayne was wearing a bulletproof vest at the time of the incident. His bond was set at $10 million. He was previously wanted on a $1 million warrant out of Shasta County for allegedly intimidating a witness. U.S. marshals with the Lone Star Fugitive Task Force in western Texas are involved in the search for Jayne after adopting the parole violation case from Oregon, according to Dave Oney, a spokesman for the U.S. Marshals Service. Jayne is also wanted by the Dooly County Sheriff ’s Office in Georgia for speeding. Jayne is described as 5 feet, 10 inches tall, weighing 180 pounds, with brown eyes and blond hair. Anyone with information about Jayne’s whereabouts should call 911.

Dear Annie: My parents divorced acrimoniously when my siblings and I were young. My brother, “Tim,” was a difficult child and was arrested when he was 11. The local law officials offered the option of handing custody to my father as an option to avoid a sentence to juvenile hall. Once my father had custody, my sister and I had very little contact with either of them. My sister and I occasionally have tried to reconcile with Tim for our mother’s sake, but we have been unsuccessful. Our mother is 70 and now wants to put her legal affairs in order. After our father’s death, my sister and I were cut out of Dad’s will. After the death of our paternal grandmother, Tim was found to be the sole heir to her estate. It surprised the other relatives because the change in her will happened only a short time before her death. My mother’s will and other legal docu-

The problem is, when Dex and I talk about our future, he gets distant, although he has said he sees us getting married down the road. I asked him to move in with me, and he did, but now I’m starting to wonder whether he would rather the relationship continue as it is.

Dear Heloise: The other day, I went to an ATM. There was a car in front of me, so I waited my turn. After the person left, I pulled up to the ATM, and to my surprise the account information was still on the screen. It was asking how much I wanted to withdraw. I easily could have taken money from this person’s account, had I wanted to. Just wanted to warn your readers to be careful to check the screen before they drive away. – An Honest Reader, via email Dear Honest: Wow! Folks, be sure to doublecheck before leaving an ATM. Also, take the receipt with you. Don’t leave it lying around. – Heloise Dear Heloise: I have a large box of denture-cleaning tablets. Can I use these for anything besides cleaning dentures? Thank you. – JoAnne, via email Dear JoAnne: Great question! Here are some other uses for denture tablets: l Use them to clean tea stains out of mugs. Fill the cup with water and add a denture tablet. Let it sit overnight and then clean.

Hints from Heloise

Heloise l Clean your gold and diamond jewelry with them. Place a tablet in a glass with the jewelry on top. Fill the glass with water and let soak for 10 to 15 minutes. Gently brush with a soft brush, then rinse well. l Clean retainers with them. Soak for 15 minutes, then rinse. l Clean vases with narrow necks. Fill a vase with water, then add a couple of denture tablets. Let it sit, then rinse. l Treat yellow discoloration on fingernails. Place two tablets in a bowl of warm water. Soak hands for five minutes, then gently scrub nails with a soft toothbrush or nailbrush. – Heloise Dear Heloise: We were planning a trip to the amusement park and were wondering how to safely take our cellphones, wal-


lets and glucometers onto the water rides. My nephew came up with the perfect solution – a plastic zipper bag. – Colleen in Pennsylvania Dear Colleen: This is one way to protect items. Also, check major retail stores near the park. I know that the ones in the San Antonio area sell waterproof containers made specifically for water parks. – Heloise Dear Heloise: This hint may help others repack a box with appliances, or electronics with several parts. Sometimes there is a need to do this, such as when returning it to the manufacturer. Also, if I am not using something for a while, I pack it up and put it in storage. Well, today I had an epiphany when I looked at what was involved. I asked, “How will I remember how all this went together?” I grabbed my camera and took pictures of how it looked. Now all I have to do is print off the pictures and include them in the box. If the object doesn’t work, this time the repacking job will be a breeze. – Mary in Nebraska

‘American Idol’ judge BY NEKESA MUMBI MOODY AP Music Writer

NEW YORK – Steven Tyler says he’s exiting “American Idol” to put rock ’n’ roll first. Tyler said he’s leaving the hit show after two seasons to rededicate himself to Aerosmith, the band he fronts. The rock star said he loved every minute on the hit Fox singing contest but added, “it’s time to bring rock back.” “After some long ... hard ... thoughts ... I’ve decided it’s time for me to let go of my mistress ‘American Idol’ before she boils my rabbit,” Tyler said in a statement, making a joking reference to the 1987 Michael DouglasGlenn Close thriller “Fatal Attraction.” “I strayed from my first love, Aerosmith, and I’m back – but instead of begging on my hands and knees, I got two fists in the air and I’m kicking the door open with my band.” The band is currently on a nationwide tour with Tyler and has an album due out in the fall.

If I were this man’s wife, I would get out of this marriage and find happiness elsewhere. – Appalled at His Behavior Annie’s Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.

What do you think? – Funerals Are for the Living Dear Funerals: There are legitimate reasons why your mother does not want Tim in her house, and you should honor those wishes. Having him at the funeral is something you should discuss with her. If the possibility of him displaying some artificial show of grief won’t bother you or your sister, your mother might reconsider notifying him in a more timely manner. But the final decision actually is the responsibility of those who plan the funeral, because they must live with the consequences.

Tyler’s “Idol” departure leaves original judge Randy Jackson and Jennifer Lopez, but the singer-actress’s future with the show is cloudy. In a phone interview with The Associated Press as the news about Tyler broke, Lopez said she was saddened to hear that he was leaving. “I can’t even imagine anyone else there right now because I’ve just spent two years sitting next to him,” she said. “I love Steven, and we became close during that time. We were a great support for each other, on an adventure that neither one of us knew what it was going to be. So it’s hard to hear that he won’t be doing it.” Lopez also said Tyler’s departure will play a role in her decision to stay or go. She has already expressed that there is a good likelihood that she will not be back. “All hope is never lost, not all hope, but at the same time, there are too many things that I need to think about,” she said. “I know they want me back, I know that I want to go back, but it’s not as simple as that. When I started ‘Idol’ ... I signed on for one year. I didn’t even think about doing it for two years, let alone three years. To make the decision to go back a second year was a big deal for me.” The change in the judging panel comes as “Idol” comes off a season of ratings erosion. Its finale, which saw Phillip Phillips crowned as the new “American Idol,” drew 21.5 million viewers, the lowest in its 11-season history. The Fox competition, which started off with Jackson, Simon Cowell and Paula Abdul as judges, has made various judging changes over the years. Ellen DeGeneres joined one season, and songwriter Kara DioGuardi was added as a fourth judge while Cowell and Abdul were still a part of the panel.

OPINION Editorial Board JOHN D. MONTGOMERY / Editor-Publisher MARY RINTOUL / Managing Editor JASON PROBST / News Editor PAT SANGIMINO / Sports Editor


A new annex he Reno County Jail Study Committee on Tuesday decidT ed to include the relocation of several county departments in its overall plan for a new jail, scheduled for a public vote in the spring. The measure accomplishes the goal of securing the courthouse and minimizing defendant contact with the public, without the prohibitive cost of rebuilding the courthouse to make it accessible to the elderly and disabled. Early on, talk about securing the courthouse centered on routing the public to a single entrance, with an all-but-certain bottleneck forming while individuals made their way through a metal detector. Another option would have left several entrances open but with a requirement that each be equipped with security equipment and the people to operate them. Those options were both expen-

sive and inconvenient for the public. The Reno County Courthouse is a grand building, filled with examples of fine craftsmanship and intricate artwork, and, as County Commissioner Brad Dillon pointed out, it will be sad that few people will have reason to visit the building – unless they have landed themselves in trouble. Nevertheless, the pragmatic solution to securing the courthouse is to move the bulk of the public’s business elsewhere, leaving the courthouse to serve largely as a courtroom. Moving the county clerk, treasurer, appraiser and register of deeds to a ground-level location, away from the sometimes emotional and unstable goings-on of the courtroom, is the least expensive way to secure the courthouse. The added benefit is that the public will enjoy a one-stop shop for most of its business, without the hassle of metal detectors, patdowns or roving security teams.


Science points to God

A credible ‘theory’

I appreciated the comments of Leroy Stucky (Western Front, June 28) defending the biblical view of the beginning of mankind, the world and the universe, otherwise known as creationism. Creationism will always be a very difficult doctrine to accept, as long as people exclude the supernatural influence and presence of an almighty God who, in my opinion, started the whole process. I have never read an issue of The American Spectator magazine, but recently at the library I happened to pick up the May 2012 issue. The magazine, I found out, is very conservative, but not necessary Christian. However, included in this issue was an article titled “Intelligent Design at the University Club,” written by Tom Bethell, senior editor of The American Spectator. Without being preachy or “Bible-thumping,” Mr. Bethell argued from a scientific perspective for the dynamic influence of God in the creation of mankind, etc. He defended his argument from several vantage points, and I will mention only one: “Stephen Meyer, the director of the Discovery Institute’s Center for Science and Culture, spoke the other evening at a forum called ‘Socrates in the City.’ … In his talk, inquiring how life first appeared from simpler pre-existing chemicals, Meyer emphasized the concept of biological information, which is embedded in DNA. “Think of it as analogous to software code. ... Software contains instructions that direct computers to accomplish various functions. Likewise, DNA contains instructions for the assembly of tiny machines called proteins, which perform vital functions within every cell.” Meyer went on to explain that “unbelieving” scientists have no explanation as to how the proper information got into the DNA molecule – a gargantuan task, as he went on to explain. Simply put, it certain seems that Someone had to “program” this DNA computer. In short, as every microbiologist should know, the “simple cell” is the most complex “piece of machinery” ever investigated. That’s one reason why I am a believer in the God of creation, the One who created all forms of life, including man, who also created planet Earth, the solar system and all the galaxies. DAVE DENLINGER Hutchinson

In reply to Mr. Leroy Stucky’s letter in the June 28 Hutchinson News: The first amendment to the Constitution of the United States ensures the separation of church and state. Since public schools are taxsupported and are a branch of the state, creationism should not be taught there because it is plainly the basic tenet of a particular religion and not science. The fact that creation science is not science has been upheld by the Supreme Court. Mr. Stucky points to nature as proof of creation by using snowflakes, birds and animals as examples. These samples, I believe, are meant to show the beauty and wonderment of nature that God created for humans. But what of earthquakes, tornadoes, hurricanes, tsunamis or volcano eruptions? In addition, there are vast areas on Earth not habitable by humans. The word “theory” as used by Mr. Stucky is not the way it is used in science. For an idea to be labeled a theory in science, such as evolution, it must pass through many tests, experiments and peer reviews. To meet their requirements, the hypothesis must fit all the known facts and be able to make predictions about future facts. In addition, there must be a set of circumstances whereby the theory fails. To date, this has not happened. The theory of evolution has more supporting facts in nature than almost any other, including relativity. The final point is that evolution has been in operation for billions of years, whereas the average life span of humans is something less than 100 years. GERALD TUCKER Iuka

We’re paying, all right Hutchinson residents should be aware of the proposed increases in taxes and sales tax to fund the proposed new jail. At the same time, the city has been rumored to be considering a one-mill increase in property taxes. (I’m unsure.) In my opinion, the sales tax is already too high and it’s common knowledge that the school bonds won’t be paid off for many years, and thus, our property taxes should not be increased, as they are already too high.

A friend lovingly remembered WASHINGTON – July 10 on my calendar reads: “Doug Day – Five Years.” That is, five years ago, my friend Doug Marlette – Pulitzer Prizewinning cartoonist, novelist, playwright, raconteur and cultural omnivore – died in a car accident on a rainy road between Memphis, Tenn., and Oxford, Miss. This is not to be maudlin, I feel compelled to say, which is also a way of apologizing for indulging a personal loss. But it is summer and this is what columnists do when they figure the Earth will continue to turn on its axis if one commentator fails to acknowledge that a given politician has revealed himself to be flawed in some way. It is, moreover, a worthy topic because Marlette’s premature exit at 57 was a loss to a world never more desperately in need of sane voices and humorous reminders of our human-ness, as he would put it. His gimlet eye on all things sublime and absurd has not been replaced and may never be. The world produces a few geniuses now and then who are simply sui generis, and Marlette was surely one. I know I speak for dozens of close friends and family members – and even a good number of enemies – when I say that Marlette was that rare creature who could size up a person, place, event or trend with a glance that was simultaneously mirthful and homicidal. He was an intellectual assassin with a preternatural knack for zeroing in on hypocrites and phonies, and woe unto those under his gaze. Your most deeply guarded secret was transparent to him – your most precious conceit a speck of lint on his sleeve. I have written about Marlette pe-

Kathleen Parker riodically as topics have permitted because this is what friends do: remember. It is also a pleasant duty to remind others not only of his gifts but of his contributions to the national conversation. We weep that Marlette missed Sarah Palin and Barack Obama, two characters he would have relished revealing. He missed Palin entirely, but he did catch a glimpse of Obama and was deeply skeptical of his presidential candidacy. Because I had been in Boston for Obama’s convention speech in 2004, I was convinced that he was a future president and said so. Marlette just chuckled and said, “Yeah, well, we’ll see.” For someone addicted to deadlines at an early age, Marlette was proudly at ease with ambiguity and patient in the way of old souls. He knew that the gods exact justice from those who try to steal their fire. He was usually prescient. Though a committed Democrat, Marlette was no ideologue and wasn’t fond of those who were. He would have rolled in clover at the sight of his colleagues clamoring to hold up the hem of Obama’s raiment. His cackle would have rattled the rafters to watch Palin (whom he would have admired as a force of nature) work crowds into a froth while his own tribe writhed in revulsion at her flirty ignorance. He would have understood as few others that, though

Palin may have lacked fluency in the language of elites, she knew instinctively how to create and then harness emotional contagion. Marlette had long distanced himself from the cacophony of the burgeoning media world, which formed the original basis for our friendship. He responded to a column I had written about the death of newspapers and thus began a conversation that lasted five years. Living in adjoining Carolinas (his North and my South), we created a virtual newsroom, plotting columns and cartoons from our respective bunkers. Like prisoners in “The Count of Monte Cristo,” we knocked on the cell floor and whispered, “Anybody there?” Descended from what he called “lint-heads,” Marlette had experienced New York the way Walker Percy said Southerners must (to discover they’re just as smart as those Northern boys). He had a nice dance with earned fame but eventually found his way back home – just like Kudzu, the comic strip character he created and nurtured for 30 years. I could write a book, but much of Marlette can be found in those he wrote, including more than a dozen cartoon collections, a memoir about cartooning (“In Your Face”), and two novels – “The Bridge,” based on his textile-working, union-organizing family, and “Magic Time,” a love story that manages to make a sturdy connection between terrorism now and during the civil rights era in Mississippi. You’ll find some of the man in both novels, and I commend them – and him – to you. Kathleen Parker’s email address is

Save austerity measures for next boom There are two competing theories on how to pull us out of the economic slump we’re in, but you’d hardly know it from the debate going on in Washington. Conservatives, who want us to cut our way to prosperity, keep drowning out those who think we should be pumping money into the economy by spending more on teachers, research, roads, bridges and other public works. The small-government, budgetcutting “austerity” advocates speak in strident, confident voices, while the proponents of more government spending – the people called “Keynesians” (after the 20th-century British economist, John Maynard Keynes) – speak in apologetic, barely audible tones, as though they’re afraid of offending someone. President Barack Obama is the latter. He sounds defensive when he puts forward one of his anemic “stimulus” plans and is always careful to balance expenditures with money from a tax increase for the rich. He’s even gone so far as to bring out the stale comparison equating a government in debt with families that live beyond their means. There’s only one solution for indebted households and nations, conservatives say – belt-tightening. And that’s pretty much what Obama said last year: We’ve run up too much debt, and now we have to start tightening our belts. It was a shot into every Keynesian’s heart. “No, no,” I wanted to shout.


Moving bulk of public business from courthouse is cost-friendly

Donald Kaul “That’s their argument, not yours.” Fortunately, I didn’t shout it. (When you start yelling at the television set, you’re only one step away from wearing a tag with your name and address on it, so when you go out, you can find your way back home.) New York Times columnist Paul Krugman is a Keynesian, but not of the shrinking-violet variety. He’s a Nobel-Prize-winning economist who speaks in a loud, clear voice that irritates the heck out of conservatives. That is to say, he speaks sense. But not “common sense.” Common sense is on the budget-cutters’ side. When your family has run up a lot of debt, cutting back on spending seems self-evidently the right thing to do. Why are governments different? Krugman answers that as well and as succinctly as anyone I’ve read. “An economy is not like an indebted family,” he wrote a few weeks ago. “Our debt is mostly money we owe to each other. Even more important, our income mostly comes from selling things to each other. Your spending is my income, and my spending is your income. So what happens if every-

one simultaneously slashes spending in an attempt to pay down debt? The answer is everyone’s income falls … and, as our incomes plunge, our debt problem gets worse, not better.” “When the private sector is frantically trying to pay down debt,” he adds, “the public sector should do the opposite, spending when the private sector can’t or won’t. By all means, let’s balance our budget once the economy has recovered – but not now. The boom, not the slump, is the right time for austerity.” Sounds good to me, but they were still teaching Keynes when I was in school. In Europe today, apparently not so much. But there’s some indication that the hardliners are backing off from their most draconian prescriptions. Not all conservatives are stupid, you know. The intelligent ones fear that more deficit spending in the face of a huge national debt will trigger inflation that, in the long run, will mean ruination. It’s better to let the economy crash and rebuild it from the ground up, they say. Personally, I prefer to delay whatever long-term medicine we might need, because it’s entirely possible that we’re able to make things better now without government austerity. As Keynes, a witty man, once said of economists who counseled the long view: “In the long run, we are all dead.” Columnist Donald Kaul lives in Ann Arbor, Mich. Email:

Mixed feelings for aid distribution THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

TOPEKA – A change in how Kansas organizes its aid distribution has improved efficiency and reduced wait time, a state official said, while some of the recipients complained the new system is confusing and leaves them waiting longer. In the past, state aid recipients were assigned their own case workers by the agency formerly known as the Kansas Department of Social and Rehabilitation Services. The agency’s name was changed last week to the Kansas Department for Children and Families, which started a program in 15 of its offices to organize caseworkers into “teams” designated to perform certain tasks, The Topeka Capital-Journal reported. A blue team is for eligibility reviews, a purple team oversees changes in existing benefits and a red team works on Temporary Assistance for Families benefits. The new system has reduced wait times and is far more efficient, agency spokeswoman Angela de Rocha said Wednesday.

PENN STAIN Paterno’s legacy may be damaged beyond repair BY NANCY ARMOUR AP National Writer

or decades Penn State was considered special, immune from the corruption of college athletics by virtue of Joe Paterno’s high ideals, long list of victories and even longer list of graduates. Now, to many people outside Penn State and even some insiders, that’s been exposed as an illusion. A blistering report released Thursday found Paterno helped hush up allegations of child sex abuse against a former assistant that went back more than a decade, sacrificing the ideals he preached to

■ Hutchinson enters post-season regional well-rested, poised to make World Series. BY PAT SANGIMINO The Hutchinson News

With their third straight invitation to the National Baseball Conference World Series already in their collective back pocket, the Hutchinson Monarchs enter the Midwest Regional with three goals in mind. First, they want to continue playing crisp, fundamentally sound baseball. Second, they want to stay healthy. And third, they want to improve their NBC World Series seed. “We still have a lot to play for,” said Monarchs General Manager Marc Blackim. “We want to get the best seed we can get.” The Monarchs begin their quest for the Midwest Regional tournament crown today at 5 p.m. when they face the Wichita Sun Devils at Lawrence-Dumont Stadium. A victory would vault them into a SaturBLACKIM day game against Park City. A loss would put them into the loser’s bracket, where the fight to stay alive in the tournament would begin on Sunday. The Sun Devils are an unfamiliar team to the Monarchs. As of Thursday morning, the bracket called for Hutchinson to open with the Wichita Wheat Kings, a Walter Johnson League foe that played the Monarchs tough three times this season. Playing someone different may have its advantages. Hutchinson played a doubleheader on Monday, but has played just those two games in the last week. In other words, while most of the competition has played plenty of baseball in the blistering heat, the Monarchs are a well-rested team. “We’ve had some time to relax,” Blackim said. “Everyone is healthy right now. You’ve always got some bumps and bruises – some soreness, but we’ve had the chance to get healthy and fresh as we go into the postseason.” The Monarchs claimed second place in the league behind the Topeka Golden Giants. Two Walter Johnson League teams automatically qualify for the NBC World Series.

Back in the game BY THE NEWS STAFF

The high school football season officially gets going in about a month, meaning it won’t be long before the glare of the Friday-night lights takes center stage. Hutchinson High went through its football camp this week, in preparation for defending yet another state football crown. The Salthawks, who beat Blue Valley last November to win their seventh state championship in eight years, will make their return to the Class 6A level this season. Their first four state championships came in Kansas’ big-class division – the last coming in 2007. A young defensive unit last season was solid by November and Hutchinson returns 10 starters on that side of the football. If there are questions for Randy Dreiling’s team, they appear to be on offense. Who will replace Jamon Cotton, the 2,000-yard rusher who will attend Pittsburg State, at fullback?

LONDON – British lawmakers clamored for an explanation Thursday about why the military needs to field more troops to protect the Olympics after a private security contractor that was paid millions to do that failed to recruit enough staff. The development is considered a major embarrassment for London’s Olympic Organizing Committee just two weeks ahead of the games. Home Secretary Theresa May confirmed that the British government will deploy an additional 3,500 troops at the London Olympics. That’s because of concerns that the firm G4S – which had been

R.A. Dickey of the New York Mets delivers against the American League during the sixth inning of the All-Star game Tuesday in Kansas City, Mo.

INSIDE PITCHING Darvish variety, Dickey mastery deliver results BY STEPHEN HAWKINS AP Sports Writer

Hall of Fame pitcher Nolan Ryan had a blazing fastball, the first ever clocked at 100 mph, during 27 seasons that included 5,714 strikeouts and seven no-hitters. Mariano Rivera has used a devastating, batcracking cutter for a record 608 saves to be part of five World Series championships with the New York Yankees. R.A. Dickey? He mastered one pitch, the knuckleball, and at age 37 became an AllStar for the first time. Then Yu Darvish came to America this year with an array of different pitches, at least seven and maybe more depending on how you might classify his repertoire. The Japanese ace won 10 games for the Texas Rangers before the All-Star break. “Everything from the velocity to the way he spins the ball is impressive. ... He can do a lot of different things with the baseball,” Los Angeles Angels manager Mike Scioscia said. “When he needs to make a pitch, he has a lot of different things he can do.” There are fastballs, sliders, curves, slurves, palmballs, splitters, forkballs and even the infamous gyroball. The curve has nicknames like hammer, deuce or Uncle Charlie. But are there really that many more pitches these days? Or are things more specific because of all the advance scouting and modern technology that can track the speed and movement of every pitch? “Now you’re talking about two-seamers, four-seamers and cutters. That can be three pitches off the fastball, where before it was just a fastball,” said Arizona manager Bob Melvin, a former big-league catcher. “I think with video and bats and breaking things down and analyzing now, now you’re just getting a little more complex where those pitchers might have been there in the past, but now they’re designated all as different pitches.” More than the typical fastball, curve, slider and change of the past. “I put down one (finger) and got whatever they threw me,” said Melvin, who played in the majors from 1985-94. Like Darvish with his wide variety of pitches or Dickey and his specialized toss, every pitcher who has ever stood on a mound is trying to do the same thing: Get the guy out. Seattle right-hander Kevin Millwood, who last month threw the first six innings of a combined no-hitter, is in the 16th season of his major league career that began in Atlanta when he was on a staff with four-time Cy Young winner Greg Maddux, Tom Glavine and John Smoltz. “I guess you can have as many pitches as you want as

Charlie Riedel/Associated Press

Yu Darvish of the Texas Rangers waves before the start of the All-Star game Tuesday.

“I don’t believe I’ve seen a right-handed pitcher that can make the ball do what he (Darvish) can make it do any better. There’s some guys that have pretty good movement, but he has the ability to make the ball move both ways on his fastball. ... That’s a critical ability.” Steve Busby, former Royals pitcher and current Rangers announcer long as you can control them and know where they’re going. I have a hard enough time with four,” Millwood said with a chuckle. “I watched Glavine win a lot of ballgames throwing pretty much two pitches, Smoltz was pretty much the same way,” he said. “Maddux, he would use three different pitches really and might mix in a curveball here and there. But for the most part he was fastball, changeup and a little cutter.” Satchel Paige had his bowtie pitch, which was a neckhigh fastball sure to back batters off the plate. Christy Mathewson threw his fadeaway pitch that was later known as a screwball and thrown so effectively by Pedro Martinez and Fernando Valenzuela. Dickey, the New York Mets right-hander, baffles batters and sometimes his own catchers. He is the only current

major leaguer whose primary pitch is the knuckleball, a pitch with little or no spin is hard to hit because it floats and can unexpectedly dart or move in any direction. It’s also supposed to be hard for pitchers to control. Now there is Darvish, who won 93 games and had a 1.99 ERA as a two-time MVP and five-time All-Star over seven seasons in Japan before signing with Texas last winter. “He really throws seven, eight different pitches,” said All-Star starting catcher Mike Napoli of the Rangers. “Yu’s stuff, all of his pitches are pretty good.” Texas manager Ron Washington is quick to point out that Darvish is still learning the different hitters in his new league. “We may not see the real Yu Darvish until toward the end of the year and going into next year,” Washington said. “He’s doing things on the fly. He’s in a tough situation and his still thriving. ... He’s got stuff and he’s going to figure out how to package it and use it.” And he still already has five games with at least 10 strikeouts this season, matching Dickey’s total before the All-Star break. Steve Busby is a former major league pitcher who threw no-hitters in each of his two full seasons for Kansas City (1973 and 1974) before his career was derailed by rotator cuff surgery. He’s impressed with Darvish. “I don’t believe I’ve seen a right-handed pitcher that can make the ball do what he can make it do any better,” said Busby, now a Rangers broadcaster. “There’s some guys that have pretty good movement, but he has the ability to make the ball move both ways on his fastball. ... That’s a critical ability.”

Lefty Bruce Chen has been in the majors for 14 years. He is with his 10th different team, the Royals, and believes he has made it this long by expanding from the basic three pitches he was throwing in the minors. “When you’re coming up, they want fastball, curveball, changeup,” Chen said. “And then when I got to the major leagues, I realized I needed a slider, and then people started adjusting, and they said, ‘You know, you need a cutter to make sure you keep guys honest.’” While Ryan played longer in the majors than any other player and had so much success throwing fastballs past hitters, few pitchers try to do it like he did. At least those starting games. “Now we’re seeing a lot of different people pitching off their fastball or their cut fastballs, what they call two-seam fastballs trying to get the ball to sink or run it. ... People are trying to develop movement off their fastballs,” Ryan said. “I think part of that is you don’t see a lot of just real hard throwers coming up in the game where that’s considered still the best pitch in baseball, and that’s somebody that throws aboveaverage fastballs.” More common are hardthrowing relievers who aren’t expected to throw extended innings each night. Mariners manager Eric Wedge said it seems every team has several guys like that these days. “Back in the day, 95 (mph) used to mean something,” said Wedge, who like Melvin played in the majors as a catcher. “Look at just how prominent that cutter has become in the game. And the changeups or the split-fingers. ... You’re getting a lot more action on the baseball at home plate nowadays.”

“There’s several teams involved in races right now,” said Detroit manager Jim Leyland, whose Tigers joined the Phillies and Red Sox on the list of big-spending underachievers in the first half of the season. “There’s probably going to be a lot of teams that would like to go out and get somebody. But the more teams that want to get something, the tougher it is to get it.” And there’s even more motivation for deals to be made in the first year of baseball’s expanded postseason. The Fall Classic will be a little wilder this time around. A new format kicks in this year that adds an extra wild card team to each league. That means 10 teams will have a chance to get in and go for it all. The Orioles, who trail the Yankees by seven games in the AL East, haven’t been to the postseason since 1997, the Pirates haven’t been there since 1992 and the nation’s capital hasn’t hosted a playoff baseball game since 1933, when Mel Ott homered in Game 5 of the World Series to help the New York Giants beat the Senators for the championship. That was long before Natitude, long before “that’s a clown question, bro” and certainly way before the All-Star game decided home-field advantage in the World Series. It’s a new day, and if Bryce Harper and the Nationals or Andrew McCutchen and the Pirates somehow Buc the odds and make it to the Series, they’ll be hosting the party after the National League beat the AL 8-0. With so much on the line from here on out, the game in Kansas City could be one of the last nights of baseball without any juice for quite a while. “We’re playing for a lot more here,” Pirates manager Clint Hurdle said. “We’re playing for a city, the goal being to re-bond the city with its ballclub.”

look for that extra edge to push them into the postseason. Felix Hernandez, RHP, Mariners: Seattle has been adamant that it is not considering moving King Felix. But if they ever would, now may be the time. The 26-year-old is 6-5 with a 3.13 ERA and is signed through 2014. He’s already topped 1,500 innings pitched in his young career and the Mariners appear nowhere close to contending. Francisco Liriano, LHP, Twins: Got off to a horrendous start to the season and was moved to the bullpen. But it’s what have you done for me lately, and the lefty who will be a free agent this winter is 3-2 with a 2.74 ERA and .175 opponents’ batting average since rejoining the rotation. Last-place Twins need young assets, and Liriano may be best trade chip. Cole Hamels, LHP, and Shane Victorino, OF, Phillies: The Phils already moved Charlie Manuel favorite Jim Thome. Now these two mainstays, who are eligible for free agency at the end of the season, could be available for the right price. Carlos Quentin, OF, Padres: Any team looking for some proven power should consider Quentin, who topped 20 homers in each of the past four years for the White Sox. In his first season in spacious Petco Park, Quentin has just seven homers and could benefit from a change of scenery.

Hot races The Yankees hold a seven-game lead over Baltimore in the AL East, but it’s still early and every division is up for grabs. Here’s a few of the races that are expected to remain tight until the final days. NL Central: The Pirates are just one game ahead of the Reds and only 2½ games ahead of the defending champs in St. Louis. NL West: The Dodgers looked like the class of the league at the start of the season, but injuries to stars Matt Kemp and Andre Ethier have brought them back to the pack. And the Giants, just half a game back, are brimming with confidence after Pablo Sandoval, Melky Cabrera and Matt Cain led the NL to an 8-0 win in the All-Star game. AL West: The Rangers may be the best team in baseball, but the Los Angeles Angels have rebounded from a slow start to show that this will be no runaway. The Rangers lead by 4 games in search of their third straight AL crown.

Key injuries These guys better get healthy if their teams expect to have a chance to play into October. CC Sabathia, LHP, Yankees: On the disabled list with a strained left groin, the Yankees desperately need their horse back at the top of the rotation. With Andy Pettitte out until late August at the earliest with a fractured left ankle, big No. 52 is more important than ever in New York. Evan Longoria, 3B, Rays: Longoria is on the shelf with a torn left hamstring that could keep him out for a while. In the meantime, the Rays will try to stay within shouting distance of the Yankees and the wild card without their leader. Kemp, OF, Dodgers: He has emerged as perhaps the best player in the game, a “five-tool guy” who has given the Dodgers their swagger. But he’s played in just two games since May 14 because of a strained left hamstring, the kind of injury that can linger if it’s not taken care of properly. Stephen Strasburg, RHP, Nationals: He has shown no ill effects coming off Tommy John surgery, which will make the second half all the more intriguing for the Nationals and their young flamethrower. GM Mike Rizzo has said that the team intends to hold Strasburg to an innings limit and will shut him down once he reaches that point to try to avoid another major arm injury. But if the Nats are in contention for a title, will they be able to hold true to that?

Trade bait Several big names figure to be trading places by the end of the month as teams

The defense was bad and the pitching – it’s calling card all season – suffered. The Monarchs have turned things around in the last couple of weeks and enter the postseason on something of a roll. “I am happy with where we are right now,” Blackim said. “We’ve banded together and are playing well as a unit.” Pitchers Shane Martin and Cory Roper have been a solid one-two tandem in the rotation, while closer Michael Schoolcraft has been dominant at times. Offensively, Scott Splett, Luke Acosta and Tyler Detmer have combined to lead the Monarchs, while the defense has been sparked by catcher Seth Wheeler and second baseman Terrell Brown.

●From Page B1 Winning this regional won’t necessarily give Hutchinson a better draw, but it will give Blackim the chance to choose the Monarchs’ first-round opponent and their preferred draw in the bracket. “That could be big,” Blackim said. “That could make a big difference.” The Monarchs have righted the ship in this topsy-turvy season. After opening the season with nine straight wins, Hutchinson dropped eight of their next 14 games to finish out June in something of a funk. Hutch wasn’t hitting with any kind of timeliness.

NCAA is looking for answers from Penn State THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

INDIANAPOLIS – The NCAA said Thursday it expects Penn State to answer a handful of crucial questions stemming from the child sexabuse case against Jerry Sandusky, any of which could result in sanctions against the school. Whether that could include the so-called “death penalty” – where a program is shut down – seems unlikely, at least for now. That has happened just once, against SMU back in the 1980s. Current NCAA rules limit the penalty to colleges already on probation that commit another major violation. But NCAA leaders have indicated in recent months they are willing to use harsher penalties for the worst offenses. That includes postseason and TV

bans, which haven’t been used extensively since the 1980s. Ohio State is banned from playing in a bowl game this season as a result of the “failure to monitor” charge that followed coach Jim Tressel’s admission that he knew several of his star players were trading memorabilia for cash and tattoos in violation of NCAA rules and did not report it. The Buckeyes also vacated the 2010 season and were hit with NCAA probation and a loss of scholarships. Southern California was banned from the postseason for two years and stripped of 30 scholarships following the Reggie Bush scandal. Still pending before the NCAA is the Miami case involving booster Nevin Shapiro. NCAA president Mark Em-

REACTION TO FINDINGS ON PENN STATE “The idea that any sane, responsible adult would knowingly cover up for a child predator is impossible to accept. The far more realistic conclusion is that many people didn’t fully understand what was happening and underestimated or misinterpreted events. Sandusky was a great deceiver. He fooled everyone – law enforcement, his family, coaches, players, neighbors, university officials, and everyone at Second Mile.” – Paterno family statement “To my understanding ... when all is said and done, Joe never said (to former Athletic Director Tim) Curley, ‘Don’t investigate.’ There was no intent to conceal (anything) by Joe ... It was reported to people he was supposed to.” – Scott Paterno, the late coach’s son “Very often the people closest to someone like this are the ones that miss it. We aren’t the only ones who missed it. ... Every one of us wishes that we would have seen something or caught something that would have done something about it.” – Jay Paterno, the late coach’s son, speaking to ESPN “There are monsters among us, people who will hurt children for their own sexual gratification. Every university, school, business and individual has an obligation to follow up and report such cases.” – Gov. Tom Corbett, who was attorney general when the investigation into Sandusky was begun by state prosecutors “(Paterno’s) 61 years of excellent service to the university is now marred.” – Karen Peetz, chairwoman of the university’s board of trustees “Unfortunately, Judge Freeh’s conclusion, repeated often during his press conference this morning, that Dr. Spanier was engaged in a course of ‘active concealPEETZ ment,’ is simply not supported by the facts or by the report itself.” – Timothy Lewis and Peter Vaira, lawyers for ousted university president Graham Spanier “It really confirms everybody’s worst fears about what was going on there. The fact that this is such a complete indictment of the university leadership is opening people’s eyes to the potential liability that schools face if they don’t address this correctly. ... Heads of every college and university in the country have got to be taking note of this, and calling board meetings today and saying, ‘We need to make sure that we change the way we’re doing things.’” – Scott Berkowitz, president of the Rape, Abuse and Incest National Network “We should be careful that we don’t paint the entire football program over a long period of time with a single brush. ... These things happen in schools, in churches, in youth camps ... all over.” – Penn State President Rodney Erickson, who called the scandal the “most painful chapter” in school history


“He built this town. All of his victories, he’ll be remembered by everyone in town for a long time, but there will be that hesitation.” – Christian Beveridge, a masonry worker who grew up near Penn State on Paterno’s legacy “The knowledge of Paterno in 1998 – the fact that Sandusky was known to be a grave risk to children for 14 years and nothing was done to stop him – that is a crying shame. And it’s something that will be a stain on Penn State for a long time to come.” – Tom Kline, lawyer for a boy known as Victim 5 who was assaulted by Sandusky in a football team shower in 2001 “This is a serious indictment against Penn State’s culture and environment of protecting at all costs the football program, and Sandusky was a major part of the success of Penn State’s football program for many years. Nothing is shocking anymore in this case ... but the fact that the highest levels of the school made a conscious decision to cover up what Sandusky had done, it comes close. It is shocking.” – Michael Boni, a lawyer for a boy known as Victim 1 who came forward in 2008, starting the Sandusky investigation “Despite being children within easy reach of many supposedly great local figures, (the victims) were offered no outstretched hand. They were left to save themselves. This campus is plagued by desperate, insistent shrieks of ‘We are Penn State.’ It’s time for Penn State to realize that adhering to this mantra is distancing and self-defeating. It is time to follow a path of humility, not one of hubris.” – Matt Bodenschatz, a Penn State student and spokesman for Voices for Victims “The actions of five or six people don’t reflect on the hundreds of thousands” of students and faculty who make up Penn State. – Mary Krupa, a Penn State freshman who grew up in State College – The Associated Press

mert told Penn State in November that the organization would be examining the “exercise of institutional control” within the athletic department, and said it was clear that “deceitful and dishonest behavior” could be considered a violation of ethics rules. So, too, could a failure to exhibit moral values. A searing report, commissioned by Penn State, found that beloved coach Joe Paterno had helped hush up allegations of child sex abuse against a former assistant. The report by former FBI Director Louis Freeh concluded that Paterno and three former administrators – President Graham Spanier, athletic director Tim Curley and vice president Gary Schultz – “repeatedly concealed critical facts relating to Sandusky’s child abuse.” Sandusky is awaiting sen-

tencing after being convicted of 45 criminal counts for abusing 10 boys over a number of years. Paterno died of lung cancer in January. “Like everyone else, we are reviewing the final report for the first time,” said Bob Williams, the NCAA’s vice president of communications. The “university has four key questions, concerning compliance with institutional control and ethics policies, to which it now needs to respond. Penn State’s response to the letter will inform our next steps, including whether or not to take further action.” Likely of particular interest to the NCAA were the report’s conclusions that the school had “decentralized and uneven” oversight of compliance issues – laws, regulations, policies and procedures.

“Certain departments monitored their own compliance issues with very limited resources,” the report found. Ensuring compliance with the federal Clery Act, which requires the reporting of crimes, was handled by someone with “minimal time.” “One of the most challenging tasks confronting the university,” the report added, “is an open, honest and thorough examination of the culture that underlies the failure of Penn State’s most powerful leaders to respond appropriately to Sandusky’s crimes.” Dry stuff, perhaps, but potentially dangerous for Penn State’s football program – or athletic department – should the NCAA decide there are major violations that are the result of a lack of institutional control or a failure to promote an atmos-

phere of compliance. “The NCAA will, I’m sure as their statement indicates, be working through the report of Judge Freeh, and we’ll have an opportunity to respond to the letter that I received from Dr. Emmert back in November,” Penn State President Rodney Erickson said. “Now that we have Judge Freeh’s report, we’re in much better position to respond to the list of questions that Dr. Emmert sent us, at that point, and we will be doing so over the next couple weeks.” Hours after the report was issued, the NCAA again touted its eight-month old partnership with Stop It Now, a child sex-abuse prevention organization, to provide member schools with resources and “foster an environment in which that abuse is reported.”

Paterno ●From Page B1 always associated with Joe and the complete lack of them in how this was handled – if what the Freeh Report says is true, and I have no reason to doubt it is, to sacrifice kids for the reputation of a football program, that’s pretty despicable. I can’t imagine anything more shocking than that.” Nike announced it was stripping Paterno’s name from the child care center at its headquarters in Beaverton, Ore., not even six months after founder Phil Knight drew a thunderous ovation for an impassioned defense of the major college football’s winningest coach at his memorial service. There was renewed clamor online to remove Paterno’s statue outside Beaver Stadium, and USA Today columnist Christine Brennan called on Penn State to drop football for at least a year until the university has addressed the failings that led to the scandal. There could still be more fallout from court cases – criminal charges against two administrators, civil suits from victims of Jerry Sandusky – and the NCAA has yet to decide whether it will weigh in on the scandal or not. “A statue should be least of someone’s worries at this point,” former Penn State linebacker LaVar Arrington said on his radio show in Washington, D.C. “A name on a building should be the least of someone’s worries. “On the one hand, Joe messed up. Joe was not perfect, Joe was not God. Joe was a person, and he messed up,” Arrington said. “On the other hand, if you’re looking at everything Joe has done and all the lives he’s impacted and all the things he’s done ... that still remains as well. So how do you separate the two? I don’t know. I don’t have the answer for that one, I really don’t.” Until last fall, Paterno symbolized all that was right about college sports. His teams won, but he didn’t sacrifice his standards to do it. Penn State’s graduation rates were impeccable, his players were as good off the field as they were on, and his financial support of the university often had nothing to do with the football program. Even after the November arrest of Sandusky, the architect of Penn State’s ferocious defenses and Paterno’s one-time heir apparent, many were hesitant to put too much blame on Paterno or let his one failing outweigh all his good deeds. Paterno acknowledged before his January death that he should have done more after a then-graduate assistant told the Hall of Fame coach he’d seen Sandusky assaulting a child in the Penn State showers in 2001, but insisted he had no knowledge of any accusations prior to that. But the stark horror of

Gene J. Puskar/Associated Press

A young boy places a yellow rose at the foot of a statue of former Penn State football coach Joe Paterno outside Beaver Stadium in State College, Pa., on Thursday. Freeh’s report was impossible to ignore. Freeh’s firm, hired by university trustees to investigate how the scandal happened, found that Paterno, and three other administrators at the time – President Graham Spanier, athletic director Tim Curley and vice president Gary Schultz – “repeatedly concealed critical facts relating to Sandusky’s child abuse.” Handwritten notes and emails portray Paterno as being involved in a decision by the officials not to tell child welfare authorities about a 2001 encounter, while other emails show Paterno closely followed allegations made against Sandusky in 1998. At a news conference, Freeh called the officials’ disregard for child victims “callous and shocking.” “We should look at (Paterno) as a willing enabler of a convicted child molester,” Brennan said. “I absolutely understand and respect the past. The games he won, the number of players he graduated, that’s a tremendous record. This supercedes all of that. ... What happened to these children because of Joe Paterno – it’s because of Jerry Sandusky first and foremost. But Joe Paterno

did not stop it and he enabled it, and that’s just tragic.” Sandusky is awaiting sentencing after being convicted last month on 45 criminal counts of abusing 10 boys. Paterno died of lung cancer in January, two months after school trustees fired him for what they called a failure of leadership. “I always thought he knew. To what extent, that was the only question,” said Brad Benson, a former Penn State offensive lineman who won a Super Bowl with the New York Giants. “I thought that anyone who didn’t think he knew was pretty naive. Joe knew pretty much everything going on there.” Even Knight acknowledged he had been on the wrong side of the moral divide, though his anguish at the dismantling of Paterno’s legacy was clear. “Throughout Joe Paterno’s career, he strived to put young athletes in a position to succeed and win in sport but most importantly in life. Joe influenced thousands of young men to become better leaders, fathers and husbands,” Knight said in a statement. “According to the investigation, it appears Joe made missteps that led to heartbreaking conse-

quences. I missed that Joe missed it, and I am extremely saddened on this day. My love for Joe and his family remains.” For those closest to Penn State and Paterno, though, their faith in the coach remains unshakeable. They believe Paterno, though not perfect, is being made a scapegoat, with no way to refute the accusations. Paterno had planned to cooperate with the investigation, but died before he could give Freeh’s team his account of what happened. “It’s easy to vilify or blame someone who’s not alive to defend himself,” said Tim Sweeney, president of Penn State’s official Football Letterman’s Club. There is no way Paterno would have covered actions as heinous as Sandusky’s up, said Mickey Shuler, who played tight end for Paterno from 1975 to 1977 – regardless of the cost to him or his program. “Joe Paterno always taught us that whatever you are, be a good one. Whatever you’re at, whatever you do, leave a place better for having been there. That’s the thing he taught,” Shuler said. “So to have people say he’s done something wrong, it’s really upsetting.”

Late Sooners play-by-play announcer to be honored THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

NORMAN, Okla. – The late Oklahoma play-by-play announcer Bob Barry Sr. will be honored posthumously with the National Football Founda-

tion’s Chris Schenkel Award. The foundation announced Thursday that Barry will be recognized in New York on Dec. 4 at its annual awards dinner, which coincides with a presentation of

the College Football Hall of Fame inductees. The award recognizes a sports broadcaster with a long and distinguished career broadcasting college football with direct ties to a specific university.

Barry was the Sooners’ radio play-by-play voice from 1961 to 1972 and again from 1991 until 2010. In between, he called games at Oklahoma State and Tulsa. Barry died in October at age 80.

Lawmakers upset over China-made uniforms BY DONNA CASSATA Associated Press

WASHINGTON – Uniforms for U.S. Olympic athletes are American red, white and blue – but made in China. That has members of Congress fuming. Republicans and Democrats railed Thursday about the U.S. Olympic Committee’s decision to dress the U.S. team in Chinese manufactured berets, blazers and pants while the American textile industry struggles economically with many U.S. workers desperate for jobs. “I am so upset. I think the Olympic committee should be ashamed of themselves. I think they should be embarrassed. I think they should take all the uniforms, put them in a big pile and burn them and start all over again,” Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid,

D-Nev., told reporters at a Capitol Hill news conference on taxes. “If they have to wear nothing but a singlet that says USA on it, painted by hand, then that’s what they should wear,” he said, referring to an athletic jersey. House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi told reporters at her weekly news conference that she’s proud of the nation’s Olympic athletes, but “they should be wearing uniforms that are made in America.” House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, said simply of the USOC, “You’d think they’d know better.” In a statement, the U.S. Olympic Committee defended the choice of designer Ralph Lauren for the clothing at the London Games, which begin later this month. “Unlike most Olympic teams around the world, the U.S. Olympic Team is privately

funded and we’re grateful for the support of our sponsors,” USOC spokesman Patrick Sandusky said in a statement. “We’re proud of our partnership with Ralph Lauren, an iconic American company, and excited to watch America’s finest athletes compete at the upcoming Games in London.” Ralph Lauren also is dressing the Olympic and Paralympic teams for the closing ceremony and providing casual clothes to be worn around the Olympic Village. Nike has made many of the competition uniforms for the U.S. and outfits for the medal stand. On Twitter, Sandusky called the outrage over the made-in-China uniforms nonsense. The designer, Sandusky wrote, “financially supports our team. An American company that supports American athletes.” Ralph Lauren’s company declined to comment on the criticism.

In fact, this is not the first time that Ralph Lauren has designed the Olympic uniforms. Yet that did little to quell the anger on Capitol Hill. “It is not just a label, it’s an economic solution,” said Rep. Steve Israel, D-N.Y. “Today there are 600,000 vacant manufacturing jobs in this country and the Olympic committee is outsourcing the manufacturing of uniforms to China? That is not just outrageous, it’s just plain dumb. It is self-defeating.” Israel urged the USOC to reverse the decision and ensure U.S. athletes wear uniforms that are made in America. Sens. Sherrod Brown, D-Ohio, and Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y., sent letters to Lawrence Probst III, chairman of the USOC, complaining about the made-in-China uniforms. Brown suggested the USOC find a manufacturer with a facility in the United States, suggesting the Hugo Boss plant in Cleveland.

US team is slowed, but gold looms BY TIM DAHLBERG Associated Press

LAS VEGAS – LeBron James was stretched out against a wall Wednesday, answering a few questions before lacing up his Nikes. Carmelo Anthony was doing the same thing in the corner of the gym, while Kobe Bryant went about his business across the way. Talent was never going to be a problem for the U.S. men’s basketball team heading to London as defending gold medal champions. Never has been, ever since the Dream Team got together 20 years ago and changed the way the world plays basketball. “We understand why we’re here,” James said. “We’re all superstars on our respective teams. Now we all have to be superstars on this team.” Assuming that happens, any worries about bringing the gold home from London should pretty much vanish. Sure, Spain figures to be tough and the Russians and Argentinians will pose challenges. And there are some who question the lack of height inside on this team. But the U.S. roster is so deep and athletic that the early chatter is that this team could be even better than the last gold medal team – even without Dwayne Wade and Chris Bosh, both key performers in Beijing, along with that team’s only true center, Dwight Howard. And Blake Griffin is hurt. “We have the potential,” James said. “But we’ll see.” Indeed, potential is a word used often about this year’s version of the Dream Team, which opened its Olympic run with an exhibition game Thursday night against the Dominican Republic. Bryant said the other day he believes this team would even beat the original

Dream Team, and coach Mike Krzyzewski – an assistant on the 1992 team – seemed inclined to agree with him. “This team can be very good,” Krzyzewski said. “They’re all in their prime or coming into their prime. In ‘92 you had Magic and Larry Bird, who were past their prime. But if they were all in their prime together in 1992 we’d never see a team like that again.” Potential, though, will only take a team so far. And so far in their brief training camp on the UNLV campus, things haven’t gone exactly to plan. A team that was supposed to be in place even before arriving last week in this gambling city wasn’t, thanks to injuries to Wade, Bosh, Howard and Derrick Rose. The full team wasn’t even announced until Saturday, when Griffin, Andre Iguodala and James Harden were added to the roster. Deron Williams couldn’t scrimmage until signing his new $98 million contract Wednesday, Griffith missed a day of practice while tending to details of his new contract, and James has been limited in practice to rest up from the NBA playoffs. Oh, and Chris Paul sprained his right thumb on the first day of practice and missed several scrimmages. Now, less than three weeks before the U.S. tips off against France in its opening game at the Olympics, the team is very much a work in progress. “It’s a disjointed start,” Krzyzewski said. “That has an impact – a negative impact – that we have to overcome.” The buzz around the UNLV gym on a day when temperatures approaching 115 degrees didn’t deter several hundred fans from

The game against the Dominican Republic in the 18,000seat UNLV arena is sold out, evidence of the star power of the team if not the quality of the competition itself. After practicing for less than a week, the first real game this team will play together could provide a lot of clues to determining how good it will be. “It’s a showcase, but it’s a statement game, too,” said Anthony, a member of the 2008 team. “It will show us where we’re at.” Five members of the team that beat Spain in the final in Beijing will be getting their second chance at gold

medals in the second Olympics under Krzyzewski, who was brought in by USA Basketball chairman Jerry Colangelo after a somewhat embarrassing performance by the U.S. in 2004 in Athens. Since then the national team has gone 39-1, but hasn’t lost since dropping a shocker to Greece in the 2006 World Championships. Though the team coasted into the final in Beijing, Spain was in the gold medal game deep into the second half before the Americans pulled away for the win. The 2008 team bought into Krzyzewski’s approach, and this team seems to be on the same page, too, joking with trainers Wednesday as they went through stretching exercises.

“We’ve been doing this for seven years and I’ve coached 10 of these guys,” Krzyzewski said. “We have great relationships and I think that helps a lot. They’re professionals, and they’re good guys.” They’re also used to having a target on their backs. Every game against the United States is the biggest game of the Olympics for their opponents, and one loss could doom their gold medal chances. They’re off to a stumbling start, but it’s hardly time to start panicking. A few exhibition games, a few more weeks of practice, and everyone will know their roles and responsibilities. It shouldn’t be long before they’re good as gold.

Griffin hurts left knee, out for exhibition BY BRIAN MAHONEY The Associated Press

LAS VEGAS — Blake Griffin aggravated a left knee injury during U.S. Olympic team training camp and has returned to Los Angeles for evaluation. The Clippers forward went through a full practice Wednesday before reporting discomfort, USA Basketball said. Griffin was set to miss the Americans’ first exhibition game Thursday. The Clippers, who just signed Griffin to a fiveyear, $95 million extension, said the All-Star will undergo an MRI and be examined by the Clippers’ medical staff upon his arrival. He also will be examined Sunday by Dr. Neal ElAttrache of

Security ●From Page B1 “Concerns have arisen about the ability of G4S to deliver the required number of guards for all Olympics venues,” she said Thursday. “We have now agreed that it would be prudent to deploy additional military support.” The move brings the total number of military personnel including reservists

the Kerlan-Jobe Orthopaedic Clinic and his status will be updated after that. Meanwhile, Anthony Davis is returning to Las Vegas and could be in uniform when the Americans face the Dominican Republic, a person with knowledge of the details said, confirming a Yahoo Sports report. The Dominicans are led by John Calipari, Davis’ coach at Kentucky. Davis, the No. 1 overall pick in this year’s NBA draft, is a team alternate after failing to make the 12-man roster. He had sprained his ankle in a workout with the New Orleans Hornets and wasn’t able to scrimmage in the first two days of camp before the Americans picked their roster, robbing him of any chance to grab a spot.

protecting the games to 17,000 – dwarfing the 9,500 troops Britain has in Afghanistan, and at a time when the armed forces are coping with thousands of job cuts. The substantial security operation for the Olympics also will feature 12,000 police, 3,000 volunteers, Typhoon fighter jets, helicopters, two warships and bomb disposal experts. May said the “absolute gap in the numbers was only crystallized” a day

ago. “G4S have let the country down and we have literally had to send in the troops,” said opposition Labour Party lawmaker Keith Vaz, demanding to know when the issue was first identified and if G4S – which has millions in contracts from the British government – will suffer financial penalties. Prime Minister David Cameron’s spokesman Steve Field said the security firm should face penalties if it breaches its contract.

But USA Basketball had asked him to stick around on the select team of young players that is training against the Americans, in case an injury popped up. He was in Los Angeles on Wednesday for the ESPY Awards, but was scheduled to return to Las Vegas on Thursday. Players can be replaced on the roster in case of injury any time up to 48 hours before the start of the Olympics. Griffin was hurt during the playoffs and struggled through the pain before the Clippers were ousted in the second round by San Antonio. After taking a couple of weeks off, he was back on the court and had been playing well for the Americans, who planned to use him at center.

But Conservative lawmaker Philip Hollobone said the penalties should go beyond Olympics-related fines. “My constituents would want the Home Secretary and the government to say that G4S can have no more government contracts whatsoever until they pay every last penny of the additional cost” of the troops, he said. May stressed that military operations elsewhere will not be affected by the additional deployment for

the Olympics but acknowledged the move will put extra strain on servicemen during the summer holiday season. Britain has committed 553 million pounds ($857 million) for venue security, covering arenas in London and other locations across Britain, including a southwest England sailing center and five soccer stadiums. Associated Press writer David Stringer contributed to this report.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. – Michael Jordan said there’s no way Kobe Bryant and this year’s USA Olympic basketball team could’ve beaten the 1992 Dream Team. Jordan told The Associated Press Thursday that he laughed – “I absolutely laughed” – when hearing Bryant’s comments that the squad training in Las Vegas could take Jordan and company. Jordan said there’s “no comparison” which team is better. “For him to compare those two teams is not one of the smarter things he ever could have done,” Jordan said prior playing in a celebrity golf tournament in Charlotte. Jordan said the 1992 team, which included 11 future Hall of Famers and won its six Olympic games by an average of more than 43 points en route to capturing the gold medal, was a better overall team largely because of the experience it put on the floor. “I heard Kobe say we were not athletic,” said a smiling Jordan as he sat in a golf cart puffing on his cigar while waiting to tee off. “But we were smart. He said we were too old, but I was 29 and in the prime of my career. Pip (Scottie Pippen) was 26 or 27, (Charles) Barkley was 29, Patrick (Ewing) was 29 and Chris Mullin was 29. Almost everybody was still in their twenties.” Jordan’s response came after Bryant told reporters in Las Vegas that this year’s team could pull out a win against the Dream Team if they faced each other in their primes. Bryant said this year’s team has a bunch of racehorses, players who are incredibly athletic while the Dream Team consisted mainly of players at the tail end of their careers.” Bryant’s comments received immediate and sharp rebuttal from some members of the Dream Team, including Barkley. Jordan joined in on Thursday. “Most of us were in the prime of our careers, at a point where athleticism doesn’t really matter,” said Jordan, the owner of the Charlotte Bobcats. “You have to know how to play the game.” Jordan shook his head when asked why he thinks Bryant made the comments. “I imagine he’s trying to say it to legitimize his own Dream Team,” Jordan said. “But to me it’s not even a question what team is better.” Jordan said Bryant is certainly entitled to his opinion – even though he said it’s just plain wrong. “For him to make that comparison, it’s one of those things where it creates conversation,” Jordan said. “I guess we’ll never know. I’d like to think that we had 11 Hall of Famers on that team and whenever they get 11 Hall of Famers you call and ask me who had the better Dream Team. Remember now, they learned from us. We didn’t learn from them.”

Jason Kidd ready to mentor Jeremy Lin at point with the Knicks BY RACHEL COHEN The Associated Press

GREENBURGH, N.Y. – Jason Kidd is already talking about how he’ll mentor Jeremy Lin even as the New York Knicks aren’t ready to formally announce the young point guard will be returning.

“Those are two young players who will hopefully be back here. We’ll make our final determination when we need to make that determination. Now is not the time.” – Glen Grunwald, New York Knicks Kathy Willens/Associated Press general manager Jason Kidd, left, and Marcus Camby, right, pose with their new jerseys and New York Knicks general The Knicks introduced newest members Kidd and Marcus Camby on Thursday, though the transaction everyone kept asking about was when they’ll re-sign the restricted free agent. While the 39-year-old Kidd made clear he believes he can help the Knicks win games in crunch time, he also embraced the role of tutoring Lin in the intricacies of the point guard position. “To have a chance to men-

manager Glen Grunwald after the team announced their newest signees at the team’s NBA basketball training facility in Tarrytown, N.Y., Thursday. tor a very good player in Jeremy – be able to share my secrets or what I’ve learned in my 18 years – for him hopefully to take it to another level, it’s something I look forward to doing,” Kidd said. A day after coach Mike Woodson reiterated that Lin “absolutely” would be back, general manager Glen Grun-

wald said New York had yet to receive the Houston Rockets’ offer sheet. Grunwald said the Knicks’ did have Landry Fields’ offer sheet from the Toronto Raptors. “Those are two young players who will hopefully be back here,” Grunwald said. “We’ll make our final determination when we need to make that determi-

nation. Now is not the time.” Kidd, in contrast, talked with certainty about his future teammate Lin. The first lesson he plans to impart: Don’t play in “fifth gear” all the time. “He just plays at one gear and that’s a very high gear,” Kidd said. “We need to sit down and talk about trying to find that fourth and third

Jordan believes Dunlap right man to lead struggling franchise BY STEVE REED The Associated Press

CHARLOTTE, N.C. – Bobcats owner Michael Jordan said last season was the most difficult he’s endured in basketball. “Obviously I’m a competitor, and I never want to be in the record books for failure,” said the six-time NBA champion and Hall of Famer. He vows that better times are ahead for his club. Jordan believes the Bobcats have the right coach in Mike Dunlap and a good core of young players who’ll help turn the struggling franchise around after finishing 7-59 a year ago – the worst winning percentage (.106) in NBA history. Jordan said the Bobcats still need to be added, but he likes the core group that includes, among others, players like Gerald Henderson, Kemba Walker, Bismack Biyombo as well as rookies Michael

Kidd-Gilchrist and Jeffrey Taylor. Just how fast the Bobcats become a playoff contender, he said, will depend on how fast the young players develop. And he thinks Dunlap is the perfect guy to develop those players. “Mike is going to be a good developmental young coach and he’s going to work with these kids and make sure they continue to progress,” Jordan said. “We’re trying to build a very strong culture in this franchise and I think we have the right personnel to do so. It can be a matter of time. It really all depends on how fast these kids develop.” Jordan is particularly high on small forward KiddGilchrist, the team’s No. 2 pick in the draft. He compares him to former teammate Scottie Pippen, calling him a “connector,” a versatile player who makes everybody around him better because of

his ability to do so many things on both ends of the basketball floor. While some are worried about Kidd-Gilchrist’s shooting stroke, Jordan isn’t. “Everybody is complaining about his shooting but he never illustrated to me that he is afraid to shoot the basketball,” Jordan said of the 6foot-7 rookie from Kentucky. “He can still shoot the basketball. He believes he can make shots and I think that will come.” Jordan knows the Bobcats have a long way to go to get to where the Miami Heat are today – on top of the NBA world. And he’s not naive enough to think the Bobcats will get better without some important personnel moves. Coming off a season in which they were last in the league in offense and 3-point shooting, the Bobcats still don’t have a proven go-to player and aren’t particularly

deep off the bench. Their rebounding was horrendous last season and their defense shaky at best. “At the end of the day you have to understand it was a shortened season and we had a lot of injuries and we had a lot of young kids thrust into a starting scenario,” Jordan said. Our record “was a repercussion of those facts. As much people have tried to criticize, it was a down period for the franchise to be in that type of light, but we feel like we still have some good bases to build with and the young kids have a feel for what it’s like to be in the NBA.” Jordan feels like he’s as much to blame for last season as anyone. “Last year was one of those years where everything happened against us,” he said. “I take full credit for that. Unfortunately those things happen. But I see an upside for this franchise without a doubt.”

gear so he has the energy to finish ballgames. We want him to play the whole season. If you have just one gear, it’s hard to play 82 games.” Lin missed the last 17 regular-season games and the first-round playoff loss to Miami after surgery to repair torn cartilage in his left knee. Kidd recalled that at the start of his career, he, too, was always stuck in fifth gear. After arriving in Phoenix in his third season, he learned how to conserve energy. “Now I only have two gears,” he joked. “There’s no shifting.” Kidd said he was comfortable backing up Lin – at the start of games. He still wants to be on the court at the end and hinted he and Lin could share the floor then. “My job is to make Jeremy better in practice and stuff like that,” Kidd said. “At the end of the day, it’s about six minutes. If I’ve learned anything in the last 18 years is the last six minutes of any NBA game, if you’re down 15 or up 15, you can win or lose.” Kidd said it was surreal to return to the New York area, where he led the New Jersey Nets to two NBA Finals appearances in seven seasons. Now the Nets are in Brooklyn and Kidd will be playing

at Madison Square Garden. The 38-year-old Camby’s career is also coming full circle. Hailing from nearby Hartford, Conn., he played for the Knicks from 19982002 before being traded to Denver for Antonio McDyess. No hard feelings, Camby said. “McDyess is not even in the league anymore,” he said with a smile, “and I’m still here.” The Knicks did confirm Thursday they had re-signed Steve Novak. Camby was acquired in a sign-and-trade with Houston on Wednesday. Kidd chose to leave Dallas, where he won the 2011 NBA title, for New York as a free agent. Both expressed hope they could be the final pieces in a championship team, with as much talk about chemistry and veteran wisdom as basketball. “This team has a lot of superstars, a lot of great talent, but it’s all about putting it together,” Camby said. Grunwald believes Camby can still provide rebounding and shot-blocking in relief of Tyson Chandler. “I know sometimes last year he put a lot of pressure on himself,” Camby said of Chandler, “because they really didn’t have anybody to replace him if he got in foul trouble or got hurt.”

COMMODITIES REVIEW The price of corn jumped 4 percent Thursday as crops continue to shrivel in a relentless heat wave across much of the country. December corn futures rose 28.25 cents to end at $7.3225 per bushel. That's the highest price since August. About 30 percent of the crop is in poor to very poor condition, compared with just 9 percent in that shape a year ago. The outlook isn't encouraging, either. The chance of precipitation is below normal for some Midwestern states over the next several days, according to an forecast. Analysts have

said that the corn crop could sustain additional damage without significant moisture in the near future. The U.S. Agriculture Department predicted Wednesday that this year's harvest would be 12 percent smaller than it had forecast in June because of damage to crops from the persistently hot, dry weather. Corn supplies, both in the U.S. and globally, were tight heading into this season, so the prospect of small stockpiles after the harvest has driven up corn prices nearly 33 percent since June 1. Those higher prices are weighing on

the stocks of companies that rely on corn for their products, such as meat and food producers. Soybeans, which are in a critical part of the growing cycle this month, also have been hurt by the hot weather. Soybeans for November delivery rose 6.5 cents to end at $15.29 per bushel and September wheat gained 20.5 cents, or 2.5 percent, to $8.4675 per bushel. Other commodities were mixed as traders worried about the prospect for demand in the slowing global economy after more disappointing news from Europe. Spain's borrowing costs rose

again, indicating that investors consider the country's debt risky. New economic data is expected from China on Friday which should provide more insight into its slowdown. Most metals fell. August gold dropped $10.40 to end at $1,565.30 an ounce, September copper decreased 3.35 cents to $3.4150 per pound, October platinum fell $19.10 to $1,412.50 an ounce and September palladium ended down $8.15 at $574.80 per ounce. September silver rose 13.8 cents to finish at $27.1610 per ounce. In energy trading, oil prices rose on

concerns about violence escalating in the Persian Gulf after the Obama administration imposed more sanctions on Iran because of its nuclear program The U.S. and other Western nations believe Iran is building a weapon. Iran denies it. Benchmark oil rose 27 cents to end at $86.08 per barrel in New York. Heating oil increased 1.15 cents to $2.7733 per gallon, wholesale gasoline gained 3.73 cents to $2.8062 per gallon and natural gas ended up 2.1 cents at $2.874 per 1,000 cubic feet.

Price hike still haunts Netflix stock a year later BY MICHAEL LIEDTKE

Netflix customer Carleen Ho holds up the DVD movies “Talladega Nights” and “Pirates of the Caribbean,” which she rented, at her home in Palo Alto, Calif.

AP Technology Writer

SAN FRANCISCO – Netflix is more popular among couch potatoes than investors a year after its polarizing decision to raise U.S. prices for video subscription services. The unexpected twist that Netflix unveiled a year ago Thursday triggered mass customer cancellations and a sell-off in its stock, which has wiped out more than $11 billion in shareholder wealth. Netflix Inc. has bounced back this year to revive its subscriber growth. But even after a recent rally, its stock remains more than 70 percent below its peak price of nearly $305 about a year ago, largely because of concerns about what Netflix has been spending to attract and retain subscribers. The stock gained $3.33, or 4 percent, to close Thursday at $84.97. The company increased its prices by as much as 60 percent as part of an effort to phase out its DVD-by-mail rental service and raise more money to license TV shows and movies for its Internet video library. Preparing for the day when DVDs become obsolete makes good business sense as the ubiquity of highspeed Internet connections makes it easier and more convenient to watch video online. Promoting Internet streaming over DVDs also helps Netflix save money on postage as it mails fewer discs.

Paul Sakuma Associated Press

But DVDs still appeal to subscribers who want to watch the latest movie releases. That’s because studios generally have refused to license their more recent material for online viewing, leaving Netflix’s Internet video library with a less comprehensive selection than what’s available on DVD. The shortcoming wasn’t a problem until last year because Netflix had been bundling DVDs with unlimited video streaming in a package that cost as little as $10 per month. With the price change, Netflix split video streaming and DVD rentals into separate services that raised the monthly

minimum cost for both to $16. As if the higher prices weren’t aggravating enough, Netflix CEO Reed Hastings infuriated subscribers even more a couple months later with a ham-handed apology that dropped another bombshell: The company intended to spin off the DVD service into a separate website called Qwikster. That switch would inconvenience subscribers who still wanted both DVDs and Internet streaming by requiring them to maintain two separate accounts on different websites. The ensuring uproar caused Hastings to quickly scrap Qwikster, but by then

the damage had been done. Netflix lost 800,000 U.S. subscribers during the quarter spanning the price hike and the Qwikster announcement, but the company has since bounced back from that setback. As of March 31, Netflix had 26.1 million U.S. subscribers, more than the 24.6 million the company had just before the price hike was announced. The bulk of those subscribers now pay only for Internet streaming. Just as Hastings envisioned, the streaming service is becoming increasingly addictive as Netflix adds more titles. Netflix, which is based in Los Gatos, Calif., says its

streaming subscribers worldwide watched more than 1 billion hours of Internet video in June. That translates to a monthly average of about 38 hours per subscriber, up from 28 hours late last year. Netflix’s commercial-free Internet video library now gets watched more frequently than most TV networks, which depend on ads and cable fees. Despite the popularity, Netflix hasn’t proven that it will be able to make as much money streaming video over the Internet as it has delivering rented DVDs through the mail during the past decade. Internet video hasn’t been as profitable so far primarily because Netflix has had to

spend heavily to secure the licensing rights to show movies and TV shows online whenever subscribers want to watch them. The popularity of streaming could prompt movie and TV studios to demand even higher fees. As of March 31, Netflix had signed contracts that will require the company to pay $3.6 billion in licensing rights during the next five years, including $730 million by next April. Netflix ended March with about $800 million in cash. The obligations have been piling up so quickly that Netflix expects to post an annual loss this year, the first time that has happened since 2002. Netflix will release its second-quarter results on July 24. “Smart people question whether they will ever make money,” Pachter said of the challenges facing Netflix in streaming. “Netflix is growing unprofitably, and content owners who see usage (of video streaming) go up by 50 percent are either going to charge more or offer lower quality content. Either is a drag on the stock.” Pachter said he is wondering if Netflix’s stock might even fall below the $45 price target that he has set for the shares. Citigroup analyst Mark Mahaney said the concerns about Netflix are overblown, although he doesn’t expect the stock to return to its previous high any time soon. He believes Netflix shares could reach $130 within the next year.

Sudoku is a number-placing puzzle based on a 9x9 grid with several given numbers. The object is to place the numbers 1 to 9 in the empty squares so that each row, each column and each 3x3 box contains the same number only once. The difficulty level of the Conceptis Sudoku increases from Monday to Sunday.
