Longer terms for inmates sentenced before 1993 BY HURST LAVIANA The Wichita Eagle

Rick Redford will go before the Kansas Prisoner Review Board this month after serving more than 27 years in prison. Had he been sentenced under today’s laws, he probably would have been released years ago. “Here I am doing 27 years just to see the parole board,” Redford said in a telephone interview from the Norton Correctional Facility. “Had I been convicted in 1993, I would have been out in 2005 without even seeing a parole board.” Redford, whose most serious conviction was for aggravated kidnapping, is one of hundreds of Kansas prison inmates serving sentences for crimes committed before July 1, 1993, the day the Kansas Sentencing Guidelines took effect. Many of these “old law” inmates are serving senPlease see INMATES, Page 13A

Gerald Teague, a WWII veteran, is among many veterans for whom traveling alone to the National World War II Memorial in Washington, D.C., is probably beyond his ability. Honor Flights provide escorted trips for WWII veterans to the memorial.


erald Teague, an 87-year-old World War II veteran, would like to see the war’s memorial in Washington, D.C. But like most WWII veterans, he has trouble getting around. Going alone to see the memorial is out of the question. “I’ve kind of given up on traveling,” said Teague, a retired pastor who resides at an assisted-living facility in Wichita. Unless he could go on an Honor Flight, a grassroots organization based in Springfield, Ohio, which has sent more than 81,000 WWII vets to D.C. to see the memorial since 2005. Not only are veterans’ travel expenses paid by the organization, “guardians” go with vets to help them get around. But Honor Flights in Kansas are in a state of flux right now with one organi-

Project aims to narrow priorities for progress BY BILL WILSON The Wichita Eagle

The Priority Project, a regional partnership of public and private groups, will roll out eight priorities Monday to keep south-central Kansas competitive for people and jobs. It’s a big step, organizers say, toward regionalizing the southcentral Kansas economy. The group wants public input on each of the priorities, which

include economic development, education and recreation, through an online survey. The goal is to narrow the eight options to three immediate priorities for community projects. The Priority Project is an outgrowth of an October letter from Wichita Mayor Carl Brewer and then-Sedgwick County Commission Chairman Dave

Police find 31 dead cats, flea infestation at Wichita house BY MOLLY MCMILLIN The Wichita Eagle

Police and fire officials found knee-deep trash, 31 dead cats and two live but flea-infested Labrador retrievers inside a Wichita home Saturday morning after responding to a call from a neighbor saying she hadn’t seen the female occupant for more than a month. Police arrived at the house in the 200 block of North Green, near Grove, to check on the woman’s welfare and smelled decay. They thought that maybe the woman had died inside the home, said Sgt. Bruce Watts. They called fire officials, who arrived with respirators. When firefighters entered the home, the Please see HOUSE, Page 6A

Martin Sheen’s tips on fathering Go ahead, ask the perfect father of the perfect child for parenting tips. But since most of us fall short of flawless, how about considering Father’s Day advice from a dad who’s grappled with personal shortcomings, seen a son face his own struggles and still counts his blessings. Presenting Martin Sheen, 71-year-old actor, liberal activist and father of Charlie Sheen, and Emilio, Ramon and Renee Estevez – all the product of a five-decade marriage to Janet Sheen. The name that pops out is Charlie, 46, he of the headline-making “Two and a Half Men� meltdown and eruptions over his dad’s tough-love attitudes on substance abuse. The waters are calmer with actor-director Emilio, 50, whose collaborations with Sheen include films and the new father-son memoir “Along the Way� (Free Press and Renee, 45, an actress, has played opposite her dad in several projects, while Ramon, 48, is an actor and an executive with the family’s Estevez Sheen production company. Sheen admits to guilt about how his offspring were affected, in earlier years, by the alcoholism that bedeviled him and by his consuming career ambitions. If he had it to do over again, he wouldn’t have had four children, he says, he would have had eight, rough patches or not. “You’re not going to get the ideal relationship,� Sheen says. “Charlie could have become a priest, Emilio could have become a doctor. You don’t get to choose that. And it’s not really a reflection of you. They did have a hand in the bargain.� This Father’s Day, as on others before it, Sheen will have a Mass said at his Catholic parish for his sons who are dads, Charlie and Emilio, and for Sheen’s late father. Without benefit of pulpit, but with the bent of a philosopher-poet, here’s Sheen’s take on the art of fathering: ■“Obviously, be aware that your actions will speak louder and last longer than your words. A child absorbs through osmosis what the parents are feeling and what they do, far more than what they say.� ■ “If you have an honest relationship with a child, that is the greatest gift. Lead an honest life and be free.� ■ “Give them time. Time is really all we have.� ■ With adult children, “you have to be there for them. You

Observers in Syria suspend patrols BY ZEINA KARAM AND DIAA HADID Associated Press

BEIRUT — U.N. observers suspended their patrols in Syria on Saturday due to a recent spike in violence, the strongest sign yet that an international peace plan was unraveling despite months of diplomatic efforts to prevent the country from plunging into civil war. The U.N. observers have been the only working part of a peace plan brokered by international envoy Kofi Annan, which the international community sees as its only hope to stop the bloodshed. The plan called for the foreign monitors to monitor compliance with a cease-fire taking effect on April 12, but they have become the most independent witnesses to the carnage on both sides as government and rebel forces have largely ignored the truce. Maj. Gen. Robert Mood, the U.N. mission chief, said intensifying clashes over the past 10 days were “posing significant risks” to the 300 unarmed observers spread out across the country, and impeding their ability to carry out their mandate. The observers will not leave the country but will remain in place and cease patrols, Mood said in a taped statement, adding the suspension would be reviewed on a daily basis. Teams have been stationed in some of Syria’s most dangerous cities. “The lack of willingness by the parties to seek a peaceful transition, and the push towards advancing military positions is increasing the losses on both sides,” Mood said. The decision came after weeks of escalating attacks, including reports of several mass killings that have left dozens dead. The U.S. reiterated its call for the Assad regime to implement a cease-fire. The peace plan’s near-collapse has increased pressure on the international community, including President Bashar Assad’s staunch allies Russia and China, to find another solution. But there has been little appetite for the type of military intervention in Libya, and several rounds of sanctions have failed to stop the bloodshed.

PROJECT From Page 1A

Unruh to Visioneering Wichita, asking the 8-year-old group to identify specific goals to focus the region’s cooperative growth effort. Current County Commission Chairman Tim Norton said the project’s goal is to identify “three or four things” that the regional community most wants accomplished. “If I had to categorize it,


we’ve gone about 10 years, we’ve had good dialogue, we’ve seen other places and gotten a few things done, but have we gone out and gotten the three or four big things done the community wanted?” Norton said. “That’s the question the mayor (Carl Brewer) and Dave Unruh asked last year: What are the three things on our plate as a public/private entity that we need to get done? “And instead of this coming up in a back room, we felt it was time to get back out to

WWW.KANSAS.COM the public and get their ideas in this framework, maybe a more laser-focused approach to what the public might be thinking.” Visioneering partnered with Young Professionals of Wichita and the Wichita Downtown Development Corporation to respond to the Brewer-Unruh challenge. With partial funding from a broader $125,000 economic development grant from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation and about $82,000 in private donations and in-kind services, the Priority Project

was launched. Final cost figures won’t be available until the survey is completed. The project grew out of lessons learned on Visioneering’s annual city-to-city trips, Norton said, following several years of work focused on downtown Wichita redevelopment. “For me, a lot of it came into focus in Louisville and Pittsburgh,” he said, mentioning the last two city-to-city destinations. “Pittsburgh has the Allegheny Conference on Community Development, and they’re certainly talking

regionally. They figured if they didn’t clean up downtown and the rivers, get rid of the pollution and retool the economic landscape after the steel mills downsized, they were in real trouble. “Louisville had issues like that, and they too think that all the surrounding counties have a dog in this fight. “So how do you raise the water for all the boats in the region, then? How do we make this work for everybody affected by Wichita?” YPW will administer the online survey through July 15

and will reach out through the news media, existing networks and on-the-street interviews. In addition to the input on priorities, the survey seeks demographic data mirroring U.S. Census questions, which will help the analysis of final results. Once those results are in, Visioneering will continue working with public and private sector partners to determine how to reach the public’s priorities. Reach Bill Wilson at 316-268-6290 or

From Page 1A 69-year-old woman, who lives alone in the house, was not inside. But they found dead animals, fleas and trash – and lots of it. The two dogs, swarming with fleas, apparently had been feeding on the cats, Watts said. They were taken by animal control. Officers were able to contact the woman, who said she had been in the hospital and was staying at a friend’s home, Watts said. When she arrived, she told officers that she had been coming by the house every day to feed the animals. “That’s doubtful,” Watts said, given the condition of the animals. Watts said he called the Wichita bomb squad to collect the cats and photograph the scene. “They have respirators and protective suits,” he said as he waited for the bomb squad to arrive. “We don’t know what we’re going to find there.” Police said later that they eventually counted 31 dead cats.

look at that information,” said Kyle A. Loven, an FBI spokesman. Absent that, he added, “the FBI does not have any intention of reopening these cases just to reopen them.” But William Means, a former American Indian Movement leader, said that because the federal government has declined to make its case files public, relatives of the dead have been left in limbo. “Justice is always important,” Means said. “The families have never had any type of explanation.” The early 1970s was a dark, confused time on Pine Ridge, reflecting the turmoil in much of the rest of the United States. On Pine Ridge, the American Indian Movement’s attempt to oust Richard A. Wilson, the tribal president, led to sporadic warfare between AIM members and the Guardians of the Oglala Nation, a paramilitary organization known as GOONs, organized by Wilson.

The federal government was frequently forced into the role of peacemaker — and occasionally, combatant. At least two FBI agents were among those killed at Pine Ridge during the violence, which was, at the time, propulsive. From 1973 to 1976, the murder rate on Pine Ridge was 170 for every 100,000 people, according to the tribe. By comparison, Detroit, which was among the nation’s most violent big cities, had a murder rate of about 50 per 100,000 in 1974. An FBI review in 2000 of 57 deaths during the era of the reign of terror concluded that many deaths deemed suspicious by the tribe had not been murders. Among them was the case of John S. Moore, an American Indian Movement supporter found in December 1974 with stab wounds to his face and neck. A coroner ruled the death a suicide, a decision the FBI has not challenged.

But Lisa R. Shellenberger, a lawyer for the tribe, said the 1975 murders of the FBI agents on the reservation had “bred deep mistrust” between the Oglala Sioux and the FBI, which she says may have affected the quality of the original criminal investigations and colored subsequent inquiries. Leonard Peltier, an American Indian Movement member, was eventually convicted of the agents’ murders.

Sand sculptor Matthew Long works on repairing his sculpture of a tall ship on Saturday in New York after vandals trampled it the night before.

Sand sculpture of ship stomped on by vandals BY VERENA DOBNIK Associated Press

NEW YORK — Artist Matthew Long spent days carving 23 tons of sand into a sculpture of a tall ship to display on New York City’s waterfront. Then, in seconds, it suffered the fate of sand castles everywhere. Long, a 57-year-old sand sculptor, arrived at Manhattan’s South Street Seaport on Saturday morning to find his creation partially demolished and covered in boot prints, “about a size nine.” “There were footprints all over the sand, and I was cursing under my breath,” he said. “It was devastating – such a hard, sinking feeling after days of carving in the hot sun.” Laughing at his own cheesy humor, the Staten Island resident added, “It took the wind out of my sails.” He said he’d worried about leaving his work sitting outside on a Friday night near the bars in the district, but hoped a guard patrolling the area would keep it safe. On Saturday, Long was trying to reconstruct his vandalized creation – a promotion for his line of sandsculpting tools and for an exhibit at the South Street Seaport Museum. “I’m trying

to get my mind back into the groove.” When completed, his creation will be 10 feet high and occupy a 20-by-20 foot space. The effort started Wednesday, when a truck hauled the tons of sand from the New Jersey shore to lower Manhattan. His mammoth tall ship, surrounded by sandy renderings of lower Manhattan buildings, was coming to life again by Saturday afternoon. “I know I’m going to pull it off,” said Long, whose work worldwide has been featured on television’s “Travel Channel.”

Among those incidents was one at Reagan National Airport when the pilots of two late-night jetliners had to land on their own after the controller supervisor who was the lone man on duty fell asleep. A Knoxville controller working the overnight shift made a bed for himself and slept during a five-hour period when seven planes landed. And a controller at a Nevada airport slept as a medical flight sought to land. A scheduling practice that let controllers pack a full work week into just four days was singled out as the prima-

ry reason they were coming to work too tired to stay awake. U.S. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood said put an immediate end to solo overnight shifts. The FAA ordered that controllers have a minimum of nine hours off before a day shift and prohibited a popular shift-swapping practice that violated that rule. After discovering the violations recently, David Grizzle, FAA chief operating officer, said the FAA was updating its timekeeping software to prevent controllers from clocking in without nine hours’ rest.


Saudi crown prince has died BY T. REES SHAPIRO Washington Post

Nayef bin Abdul Aziz, the Saudi prince who oversaw the kingdomâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s vast internal security apparatus for more than 35 years, amassing prestige and influence on his path to becoming heir to the throne, died Saturday. Saudi news outlets reported that he died of undisclosed causes at a hospital in Geneva. He was thought to be 78 or 79. Prince Nayef became crown prince â&#x20AC;&#x201C; first in line to succeed the king â&#x20AC;&#x201C; in 2011. In recent years, Prince Nayef had emerged as a close U.S. partner on counterterrorism and the fight to vanquish al-Qaida. As interior minister since 1975, he was responsible for protecting the Saudi realm and maintaining order within its borders. He led a vigorous campaign against al-Qaida after a series of attacks inside Saudi Arabia between 2003 and 2006. He was hailed for helping to suppress Islamic radicalism. Former U.S. ambassador to Saudi Arabia Chas Freeman said in an interview Saturday that Prince Nayef was brutally efficient against Saudi Arabiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s enemies. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was a comprehensive and quite successful counterterror strategy, which Nayef was intimately Nayef involved with at every stage,â&#x20AC;? Freeman said. But he was long considered a capricious ally, and his relationship with the United States was complicated by a deep-seated distrust of Americans. During the 1970s, the United States presented him with a new desk as a gift to honor his rise in status at the Interior Ministry. According to Steve Collâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 2008 book â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Bin Ladens,â&#x20AC;? Prince Nayef later learned the desk was bugged with a CIA listening device. After the discovery, the prince became increasingly hostile toward the U.S. government and sometimes failed to cooperate in terrorism-related issues with the White House and FBI. In 1996, he refused to meet with FBI Director Louis Freeh, who came to Saudi Arabia to oversee the investigation of the Khobar Towers bombing, in which 19 Americans were killed. Instead, low-ranking deputies met with Freeh, while Prince Nayef relaxed on his private yacht anchored in the Red Sea. In the immediate aftermath of the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks, Prince Nayef said he did not think that any Saudis participated in the attacks, although it was later determined that 15 of the 19 hijackers were from the kingdom. He claimed that Jews were responsible for the attacks. His attitude toward alQaida began to change in 2003, after a series of bombings targeted Saudi government facilities and members of the royal family. He swiftly took action against individuals with suspected ties to al-Qaida and implemented programs in mosques around the country to refute and discredit extremist ideologies. Saudi Arabia expert Peter Mandaville and Freeman said that Prince Nayefâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most enduring contribution will be his key role in fighting extremists. He had groomed his son, Mohammed bin Nayef bin Abdul Aziz, to be his deputy and a pivotal figure combating al-Qaida. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Mohammed has been the chief interlocutor between the Saudis and the United Statesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; counterterrorism establishment,â&#x20AC;? Mandaville said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;With a nod from his powerful father, Mohammed has nurtured incredibly close and valuable counterterrorism cooperation.â&#x20AC;?

Air Force space plane lands itself in Calif. An image provided by the Air Force shows the X-37B. The unmanned space plane landed Saturday, capping a 15-month mission.

BY ALICIA CHANG Associated Press

LOS ANGELES â&#x20AC;&#x201D; An unmanned Air Force space plane steered itself to a landing early Saturday at a California military base, capping a 15-month clandestine mission. The spacecraft, which was launched from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida in March 2011, conducted in-orbit experiments during the mission, officials said. It was the second such autonomous landing at the Vandenberg Air Force Base, 130 miles northwest of Los Angeles. In 2010, an identical unmanned spacecraft returned to Earth after seven months and 91 million miles in orbit. The latest homecoming was set in motion when the stubby-winged robotic X-37B fired its engine to slip out of orbit, then pierced through the atmosphere and glided down the runway like an airplane. â&#x20AC;&#x153;With the retirement of the Space Shuttle fleet, the X-37B OTV program brings a singular capability to space technology development,â&#x20AC;? said Lt.

With the second X-37B on the ground, the Air Force planned to launch the first one again in the fall. An exact date has not been set.

whether Parliament should be dissolved. It was the latest in a series of legal and political moves by Egypt’s dueling powers that have polarized and dispirited the nation on what was supposed to be a buoyant moment: Egyptians electing their president for the first time. Gone was the jubilation of last month, when Egyptians picked among 13 candidates in the first round of presidential elections. A patina of resignation and fear hung over the process on the first of two days of runoff voting as many voters said that despite the uprising that toppled

President Hosni Mubarak 16 months ago, the state created by Mubarak remains largely intact. Many called the process that led to the runoff election a “game.” Turnout was reported to be low, particularly among young people and pro-revolutionary parties, as the choice on the ballot was between two conservatives: Mubarak’s former prime minister and the apparent frontrunner, Ahmed Shafik, and the Muslim Brotherhood’s candidate, Mohammed Morsi. The winner is slated to be sworn in July 1. Besides the court ruling, the military council announced

last week that soldiers could arrest civilians for a broad range of violations, marking the return of martial law just weeks after a hated threedecade emergency law had expired. “This is not in our hands. We have done what we can do,” said a man who wanted to be identified only as Rifat, saying he feared reprisals. The 45-year-old factory worker had voted for Morsi in Helwan, a poor community in southern Cairo. “I’m worried,” he said. “They said there would be democracy but nothing happened. I hope my vote will count, God willing.”

The Shehab Center for Human Rights, an organization based in Alexandria, alleged that Shafik supporters in several polling stations used what is locally known as the rotating ballot — a pre-filled ballot paper handed to voters outside of the polling station. A popular tactic under the Mubarak regime, it typically promises voters money if they deposit the pre-filled ballot in the ballot box and return their blank ballot back to the partisans outside. Judge Farouk Sultan, who heads the election commission, said the commission had discovered 1,000 pre-marked ballots.

Mount McKinley, also known as Denali, is North America’s tallest peak at 20,320 feet. While not a particularly tall peak by global standards, its latitude makes for far thinner air than is found in mountains closer to the equator. That, combined with the weather and temperatures, makes it a particularly dangerous climb. Four people died on the mountain in 2009 and again in 2010. At least five people died in 2011.

Woman drives into crowd, injuring dozens Associated Press

LIMA, Ohio — A 63-year-old woman drove her car into a crowded town square in northwest Ohio and struck bystanders, sending some through the air and pinning others under the car until freed when bystanders lifted the vehicle, authorities and witnesses said. About 30 people were injured. Some suffered serious injuries to their legs, heads and necks, none of them lifethreatening, police said. All but four were released from the hospital Friday, a hospital spokeswoman said. At least one other person was taken to another hospital. The chaotic scene unfolded Friday night in Lima, where more than 1,000 people had gathered for a weekly community event featuring live music. A witness said the

round of beer for the night when she saw the small, fourdoor vehicle come from her right and plow through the crowd. About 50 people were in and around its path. “I could hear the people hitting against the car,” the

25-year-old Scheckelhoss said. “There were shoes flying. I could see people tumbled over. It was just so disturbing.” Scheckelhoss, one of the first people to dial 911, said the woman had a white dog in the back seat. “I remember looking at the woman’s face,” she said. “She looked disoriented.” Lima Police Detective Steve Stechschulte said the Lima-area woman, who police would not identify, probably drove the car about 50 feet at about 20 mph. Tire marks show the car’s path, including on a sidewalk and a flower bed. Stechschulte said officials Saturday were still investigating the cause of the crash. He said the woman was not injured and was released pending further investigation. She was cooperating with officers, he said.

BAGHDAD — – Two car bombs in Iraq’s capital killed at least 26 people Saturday on the last day of a Shiite pilgrimage already hit by multiple bombings. The blasts, one in a heavily guarded area close to a revered shrine, raised the week’s death toll to more than 100 and cast further doubt on the divided government’s ability to secure the country after the American withdrawal. Black plumes of smoke filled the sky over Baghdad’s northern Kazimiyah neighborhood, where the shrine to eighth-century saint Imam Moussa al-Kadhim draws hundreds of thousands of pilgrims each year. One of the bombs tore into throngs of people who packed the streets nearby, carrying aloft symbolic coffins and beating their chests in mourning to mark his martyrdom. Three days before, nearly two dozen coordinated bombs around the country killed 72 people. Al-Qaida’s Iraqi affiliate on Saturday claimed responsibility for that attack, which marked one of the deadliest days in Iraq since the last U.S. troops left in December. The fierce wave of bombings targeting Shiites suggests that the al-Qaida-allied Sunni militants are stepping

up their periodic attacks – which recently have come every few weeks – to try to exploit sectarian cracks in the elected government of Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki and possibly spark another round of the bloodshed between Sunni and Shiite Muslims that brought Iraq to the brink of civil war only a few years ago. Overall levels of violence are still down considerably from then, but Shiite religious commemorations are frequent targets of these attacks. The sheer number of blasts during the al-Kadhim pilgrimage shows the ability of al-Qaida to retain and perhaps rebuild its bombings networks despite heavy blows struck to the organization by U.S. forces and allied Sunni militias prior to the American withdrawal. The bombers’ ability to penetrate so close to the shrine indicates the challenges faced by Iraq’s security forces in securing huge religious gatherings. “Those behind the attacks, they’ve become more determined now and see more of an opportunity because of the dysfunctional political process,” said Salman Shaikh, director of the Brookings Doha Center and an analyst on regional politics. The government is now split on mostly sectarian lines and over what critics say are al-Maliki’s increasingly authoritarian tendencies.

FCC considers study of cellphone radiation BY CECILIA KANG Washington Post

WASHINGTON — The Federal Communications Commission is seeking to study whether it needs better guidelines to protect people from cellphone radiation, a question it hasn’t posed in 15 years. During that period, mobile devices have become ubiquitous and far more powerful. Today, there are more cellphones than people in the United States. But there has been no definitive study on whether the explosive growth is bad for our health. Before the FCC can examine the question, however, it must get permission from its five commissioners. The FCC, which sets limits on radio frequency emissions for devices, downplayed the significance of the action, saying current rules appear adequate and that the proposal is part of a routine effort to make sure its guidelines are up to date. “We are confident that, as set, the emissions guidelines for devices pose no risk to consumers,” spokeswoman Tammy Sun said in a statement. The agency said it was uncertain when a vote would take place.

The debate is sure to draw heavy interest. The deeppocketed wireless industry opposes changes to current federal rules. Health advocates have argued that the government has ignored safety concerns raised by some scientists. Studies have been split on the matter. Some have indicated that cellphone use poses no risk to humans. Others have suggested possible harm. In May 2011, a panel of health experts organized by the World Health Organization concluded that the devices are “possibly carcinogenic.” The WHO panel said particular concern is the use of cellphones by children, who spend more time than ever with the devices pressed against their ears or in their pockets. Their skulls are thinner than that of an adult and absorb radio frequencies at higher rates. A separate study in February 2011 by researchers at the National Institutes of Health found that 50 minutes of cellphone use altered activity in the part of the brain closest to where the devices’ antennas were located. The FCC’s proposed inquiry specifically addresses health considerations for children.



Study: Cougars again spreading across Midwest BY JIM SUHR Associated Press


ST. LOUIS — Cougars are again spreading across the Midwest a century after the generally reclusive predators were hunted to near extinction in much of the region, according to a new study billed as the first rigorous statistical look at the issue. The findings, detailed in the Journal of Wildlife Management, showed 178 cougar confirmations in the Midwest and as far south of Texas between 1990 and 2008. While confirmed sightings of Midwest cougars were sporadic before 1990, when there were only a couple, they spiked to more than 30 by 2008, the study shows. Researchers said the study poses fresh questions about how humans and livestock can coexist with the re-emerging predators, whose movements appear to be following natural dispersal instincts. The study sorts through various reported sightings and affixes a number to those it could confirm, which is significant because no government agency tracks the number of large cats across the country. And wildlife officials for years have said it’s unclear how many of the animals may be in the Midwest, where they are not federally protected and, in some states, are subject to being hunted. “We (now) know there are a heck of a lot more cougars running around the Midwest than in 1990,” said Clay Nielsen, a Southern Illinois University wildlife ecologist who co-authored the report while heading the nonprofit Cougar Network’s scientific research. “We’ve got an interesting and compelling picture to talk about now. “For those who are excited about the notion of living with large carnivores, this is great,” Nielsen added. “For those worried about livestock degradations, there’s going to be division in the ranks in the Midwest. It’s going to be in-

A newly released study by a University of Minnesota doctoral student, a Southern Illinois University wildlife ecologist and the research-minded Cougar Network says 178 scientific confirmations of cougars have been documented in the 14 largely Midwestern states and some Canadian provinces from 1990 to 2008.

Scientists long had suspected that cougars were migrating from the West or South Dakota’s Black Hills, where they have been so abundant that the state has staged a yearly hunting season targeting mountain lions since 2005. The study excluded confirmations from the Black Hills, given that state’s bounty of puma-breeding populations. Of the cougar confirmations by researchers, roughly 62 percent took place within some 12 miles of habitat considered suitable for the animals’ populations. Sixty-seven of the confirmations were in Nebraska, 31 in North Dakota, 12 each in Oklahoma and Texas, 11 in South Dakota and 10 in Missouri.

Carlotta kills 2 in Mexico, weakens rapidly BY BERTHA RAMOS Associated Press

ACAPULCO, Mexico — Carlotta was downgraded to a tropical depression on Saturday as the system rapidly weakened after killing two young sisters in its march across southern Mexico. The National Weather Service’s National Hurricane Center in Miami said Saturday that the government of Mexico had discontinued all watches and warnings for Carlotta, which reached hurricane strength on Friday. Earlier Saturday, the Miami center discontinued the hurricane warning that had been in effect from Salina Cruz to Punta Maldonado and the hurricane watch from west of Punta Maldonado to

Acapulco. Civil protection service spokeswoman Cynthia Tovar said Saturday that two sisters, ages 13 and 7, died Friday in the Oaxaca state community of Pluma Hidalgo when a mudslide caused their home to collapse. The storm also washed out some coastal roads, leaving dozens of communities unreachable by land. Thousands of people throughout the state lost electricity and cellular phone service. Carlotta on Saturday pushed northward toward the resort city of Acapulco after making landfall near the Mexican beach town of Puerto Escondido in the southernmost part of Oaxaca state, where it toppled trees and shook tourist hotels.

“We don’t care about the rain, we’re going to have fun at the club,” said tourist Alejandra Flores, who took a bus with a friend Friday from Guadalajara to Acapulco. People in Acapulco were calm and dining in restaurants late Friday. Earlier Friday, Carlotta had toppled billboards and shattered some windows in Puerto Escondido, a laid-back port popular with surfers, where it reached land as a Category 1 hurricane. Oaxaca’s civil protection service said some roads near the resorts of Huatulco and Pochutla were affected by mudslides, and that authorities had opened emergency shelters and evacuated dozens of families from lowlying areas.

Fire 2-4 weeks from containment BY THOMAS PEIPERT Associated Press

DENVER — Additional crews arrived Saturday at a wildfire in northern Colorado that has scorched about 85 square miles and destroyed at least 181 homes, the most in state history. The High Park Fire burning 15 miles west of Fort Collins surpasses the Fourmile Canyon wildfire, which destroyed 169 homes west of Boulder in September 2010. Fire information officer Brett Haberstick said that more than 1,500 personnel were working on the Fort Collins-area fire. The lightning-caused blaze, which is believed to have killed a 62-year-old woman whose body was found in her cabin, was 20 percent contained. The fire’s incident commander said full containment could be two to four weeks away. Haberstick said hot and dry conditions were expected to continue, but crews have made progress in containing a 200-acre spot fire that erupted Thursday afternoon north of the Cache La Poudre River, a critical line of defense against northward growth. “We’re hopeful that we will be able to contain it today, but that will be determined by Mother Nature,” Haberstick said. Firefighters have extinguished other incursions north of the river, but the most recent one appeared to

HONOLULU — Hawaiian monk seals need an image makeover. Some fishermen blame the endangered species for stealing their catch. There are unfounded rumors that they devour and deplete fish stocks. And at least four of them have been killed by humans in Hawaii since late last year. To help correct the misconceptions, government scientists plan to glue submersible cameras onto the seals’ backs, using the footage to prove to fishermen the animals are not harming their way of life. It may even end up on reality TV. “It’s following seals to have them tell their own story,” Charles Littnan, lead scientist for the National Marine Fisheries Service’s Hawaiian Monk Seal Research Program. They expect to see the seals dive for eels and fish on the ocean floor. The “Crittercams,” provided by the National Geographic Society, are the latest tactic to

National Weather Service meteorologist Kyle Fredin said some rain was expected in the fire zone Saturday evening, but it would not be enough to put the fire out. “We need a rain that will really last all day,” he said. “But it’s better than dry wind at this point.” Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack, who oversees the Forest Service, met with fire managers in Fort Collins on Saturday and said “fighting this fire is going to require us to be aggressive, persistent

and also patient.” “We’re going to continue to work to make our forests more resilient. We’re going to continue to ensure that adequate resources are provided for fighting fires, and we are going to continue to make sure that we encourage appropriate stewardship of our forests,” he said. Vilsack praised Congress for allowing the government to contract additional aircraft – particularly heavy tankers – to fight wildfires across the West. But he called on lawmakers for budget certainty

to help plan for future fires. Vilsack is scheduled to hold a news conference with U.S. Forest Service Chief Tom Tidwell in Albuquerque today. Meanwhile in New Mexico, questions were being raised about whether bureaucratic red tape prevented firefighters from saving more homes affected by the Little Bear Fire after federal officials released transcripts of the firefighters’ response. The fire has destroyed 224 homes and burned 59 square miles.

Starting this August, biologists will capture several seals, sedate them and use epoxy to attach the cameras to their hides. Littnan hopes the footage will prove several assumptions untrue. Some people think, for

example, that seals operate like swarms of locusts – tough to do when there are only 200 of them in the main Hawaiian Islands. Others believe the seals eat 600 pounds of fish a day – not

plausible, since an adult weighs 375 to 500 pounds. The researchers are inviting fishermen and budding scientists at high schools to join the research teams and watch the footage as it comes in.

tences that would have been much shorter under today’s law. “I’m on my 26th year right now,” said Sherman Wright, who figures he would have been released after 15 years had he been sentenced under the guidelines as they became law in 1993. Instead he’s serving a 69-year-to-life sentence on burglary and aggravated robbery convictions that will keep him in prison at least until 2024. Wright’s sister, Cynthia Crawford, said her brother’s crimes were relatively minor compared with those committed by some of his fellow inmates. “He never used any kind of a weapon; he never hurt anybody,” she said. “I don’t understand how they can let him sit in there and rot like that when people keep going in for killing or raping kids and getting right back out. “I know that hurts him to see people come and go, come and go, for crimes that were way past his.”

Sentencing Guidelines Act The 1992 Sentencing Guidelines Act, which was designed to eliminate racial and geographical disparities in sentencing, established a sentencing system based on the type of crime committed and the defendant’s previous criminal history. The guidelines generally called for shorter sentences for property crimes and longer ones for crimes of violence. The Kansas Legislature decided to apply the guidelines retroactively to more than 2,000 inmates who were serving time for relatively minor offenses. But more than 4,000 inmates convicted of more serious crimes were left to serve out their original sentences. Many of those inmates had more than one conviction and were serving multiple sentences consecutively. Some who had prior convictions saw their sentences doubled or even tripled under what was known as the Habitual Criminal Act. The sentencing guidelines law in effect created two classes of prison inmates, but the Kansas Supreme Court ruled in 1994 that it did not violate any inmate’s right to equal protection of the law, guaranteed by the 14th Amendment. Today, about 400 of those “old law” inmates remain behind bars. Defense lawyer Richard Ney said the biggest difference between the old and new sentencing laws was in the sentence structure. Under the old law, defendants were given a sentencing range — five to 20 years for aggravated robbery, perhaps, or 15 years to life for rape. The Kansas Parole Board, which has since been abolished, decided when most inmates would be released. Under the new guidelines, defendants receive specific sentences. A defendant with no prior convictions who is convicted of rape can expect to serve 12 years and 10 months in prison. A person with three prior convictions for serious crimes can expect to serve about 15.5 years for aggravated robbery.

Redford’s case Redford, now 55, grew up in Hutchinson and was arrested in May 1986, after a 22-year-old woman told authorities she had been held captive by Redford and two other people for two weeks in an Ellsworth Coun-



ty farmhouse. She said she was raped and beaten by her captors before escaping when she was left alone at a Wright west Wichita restaurant. The woman told authorities that Redford kidnapped her because he mistakenly thought she had stolen $11,000 in drug money. Redford has always denied the charge. One of his codefendants testified at his trial that the victim went voluntarily to Ellsworth after she had an argument with an old boyfriend, and after the boyfriend went to her parents’ home and accused her of being a drug addict and prostitute. Redford never denied being a drug dealer. “Was I a drug dealer? Yes,” he said. “I did it for years.” Redford, who was convicted of six felony charges, was sentenced to life plus 25 years in prison. This is his first bid for parole. At his parole hearing on June 28, Redford said he will tell the same story to the Prisoner Review Board if asked. In a written application for parole, Redford cites a dozen inmates with crimes at least as serious as his who already have been released. Among them is Thomas Bird, a former Emporia minister who killed his wife in 1983 and was involved in the murder of the husband of his church secretary. Bird was paroled in 2004 after serving 20 years in prison for convictions of first-degree murder and solicitation to commit first-degree murder.

tenced in 1987 to 15 years to life for aggravated sodomy and indecent liberties with a child. He was paroled in 2003 after serving 17.5 years. He said the crimes involved a stepdaughter and the daughter of a girlfriend. Neer’s parole was revoked in September 2009, he said, when he violated a no-contact court order involving his son’s mother. He has been in prison ever since. He had a parole hearing in April, but was told he would have to serve at least 12 more months in prison before being released. “It’s a little discouraging,” he said. There are no efforts under way to convert pre-1993 sentences make them coincide with current sentencing laws.

Wright’s case Unlike Redford, Wright admits he committed the crimes that landed him in prison serving a sentenced imposed under the old law. Now 48, he said a jury convicted him of three robberies, one of which involved a retired court official. He said there were three factors working against him when he got to court. “One — I was young and didn’t understand anything,” he said. “Two — I wouldn’t tell who the participants in the case were, and the DA got real perturbed about that. The third is that one of the victims was a bailiff, and they wanted to make example out of me.” He turned down a plea bargain that might have resulted in a shorter sentence. “I took it to trial,” he said. “I thought I knew what I was doing. I wasn’t listening to nobody.” Ney said the “old law” rules apply to ex-convicts even after they are released on parole. “If you have an old sentence, it’s a whole different issue” if you violate parole, he said. For those sentenced for crimes that occurred after July 1, 1993, a parole revocation means a trip back to prison for 180 days — a term that is usually reduced to 90 days for good behavior. For crimes that occurred before the guidelines took effect, the penalty can be much more severe, Ed Neer, 50, is an “old law” inmate who was sen-

In an era long before radio, television or talking films, Vaudeville was the most popular form of entertainment in the United States. More than ever, Americans in the early 20th century had increased leisure time and more spending power, and Vaudeville represented the beginning of entertainment as a lucrative from of business. The word Vaudeville is a derivative of possibly two French words “Voix de Ville” meaning “Voice of the City” or “Vaux de Ville” meaning “Worth of the City” or “A City’s Worth”. In Wichita, there were many Vaudeville houses such as the Miller, the Crawford, the Topeka, the Princess and the Palace theatres, but none of them had access to the top billing Vaudeville acts that were touring the country. It was not until the opening of the Orpheum Theatre on September 4, 1922 that the best in Vaudeville began coming to Wichita by way of the Orpheum Vaudeville Circuit based out of Chicago. With multiple performances every day, some 17,000 Vaudeville acts performed at the Orpheum Theatre from 1922 through 1929. The biggest headlining Vaudeville act that performed on the Orpheum stage was the famous escape artist Harry Houdini, who performed at the Orpheum from November 26 through December 1, 1923.

When tornadoes wreaked havoc on Wichita and Spirit AeroSystems, it looked like a long, difficult recovery might lay ahead. But thanks to the hard work, perseverance, teamwork and support of Spirit employees, their families, city leaders and area workers, the company was able to get back to work and back on schedule in record time. On behalf of Boeing, our customers and airline passengers around the world, it’s a privilege to say, Thank you.

McConnell should be home of new tankers Good for Kansas Sens. Pat Roberts and Jerry Moran and Rep. Mike Pompeo, R-Wichita, for pushing the Air Force to select McConnell Air Force Base as the main operation base for the new KC-46A tanker. In a letter this month to Air Force Secretary Michael Donley, the lawmakers touted how McConnell “is the option whose location, capacity and mission will best meet the needs of the U.S. Air Force.” They noted that McConnell’s geographic location provides the “strategic flexibility needed to carry out a variety of missions, both overseas and at home,” and argued that the base has the hangar, runway and ramp space to support tanker operations. Wichita was supposed to help build the new tankers, but Boeing decided to leave town and move the production work elsewhere.

Kansas not alone in failing to restore school funding Because of the recession and declining revenue, most states cut funding to K-12 education and social services. But now that sales- and income-tax revenues are growing, are states restoring that funding? Not in Kansas and at least seven other states that cut taxes, the website Remapping Debate reported. The article highlighted the dashed hopes of Wichita superintendent John Allison. “We were told that once the economy improves, our funding would be restored,” Allison said. “But this year, when they did have a choice, a very clear choice, they decided that tax cuts were Allison more important than education.” Allison thinks the tax cuts likely will lead to more funding cuts. “The light at the end of the tunnel has suddenly disappeared,” he said.

Great to see school named for a great teacher It was good to see the Wichita school board answer some pressing questions last week of what to call certain new schools and a repurposed building in the district. In doing so, it newly honored Christa McAuliffe, the New Hampshire teacher killed in the 1986 explosion of the Space Shuttle Challenger, by putting her name on the new K-8 school in southeast Wichita, and it continued to recognize civil rights pioneer Chester I. Lewis by renaming the former Northeast Magnet High School building after him (Lewis Elementary recently closed). And how great that a new southwest-side elementary will honor not some famous person or notable district administrator but a beloved teacher: James Enders, a longtime physical education and social studies teacher and coach who died in 2010. During a rough time in contract negotiations, that sends a good message about the value of outstanding teachers in the district and community. One complaint: The announcement and board approval of the new names happened all in one night, leaving no opportunity for public debate.

Kansas getting ‘smart on crime’ again Gov. Sam Brownback recently signed legislation aimed at stemming growth in the prison population and reducing recidivism. The promising reform follows a “justice reinvestment” approach that brings together the executive, legislative and judicial branches of government to analyze data and “identify ways the state can reduce corrections spending and use some of the savings generated to invest in strategies that increase public safety,” according to a news release from the Kansas Department of Corrections. Kansas had been a national leader in recent years with “smart on crime” initiatives, but budget cuts have hurt those efforts.

U.S. is healthy but acts suicidal America is not in a state of decline. It is healthy and strong. But it is becoming suicidal. All societies must raise their children to be adults who are capable and willing to contribute to the well-being of society. In the past, America did this by providing its children with a free high school education. However, a high school education is no longer sufficient for the needs of a highly technological society. Today, for the well-being of our country, the majority of our youths must have several years of advanced academic or technical training. Society is requiring its young people to accumulate huge debts to pay for advanced training. We are essentially indenturing the majority of our young people. Doing so is shortsighted, heartless and self-defeating. Our second failure is with regard to immigration. We are an increasingly elderly society whose birthrate is insufficient for our future needs. Yet we overly restrict the number of trained immigrants, and we exploit and humiliate the “illegals” while cynically depending on them to work our farms, work in our hotels and even in our homes. Finally, we believe that government is not the solution; it is the problem. We fail to remember that a strong, democratic society is essential for human well-being, and that we have an obligation to provide that government with sufficient funds.

with the tax cuts that will certainly devastate education and many other vital services, the crucial election for Kansas will be in the Republican primary in August – not in the general election. It is time to make your voice heard. Voters who are registered with the Democratic Party or as independents may have little effect on the outcome. The Kansas Chamber of Commerce and other fiscal extremists have targeted moderate Republicans who do not completely support Gov. Sam Brownback’s legislative agenda. Depending on the new voting district lines, moderates may have more success voting in the primary as registered Republicans. I was registered as a Democrat but recently registered as a Republican so I can support moderate Republicans in the primary. If I wish, I may still vote for Democratic candidates in November.

Privatize jobs Concerning government employees’ paychecks and benefits and all the fuss over collectivebargaining rights for public employees: The solution is to privatize everything – schools, Postal Service, all government agencies. Let knowledgeable businesspeople run these as they would any business. They would hire and fire as they see fit, and workers would have to earn their pay and benefits, just as the rest of us do. Yes, it could be done. Government workers just don’t want to lose their safe, cushy jobs. I realize many do an excellent job, but there are also many who don’t. Accountability is the key.

Bad driving Once again, I recently had a person zoom around me. If I had not slammed on the brakes, we would have collided. But this person was able to brag about getting to the exit first. This is only one of the many bad driving habits I see each day driving around town. It is time that this kind of behavior is shut down to get lower insurance rates. People who drive like this are so bad they can’t even teach their children to drive. When freeways started to be common in the early 1950s, there were 30-second cartoons on TV about how to drive. They showed how to get on and off a freeway, and how to pass and change lanes on a highway. Maybe young drivers would watch and learn from similar cartoons today. Meanwhile, older drivers should have to pay big fines for passing on yellow lines, improperly changing lanes, shooting through yield signs at twice the speed limit, and running red lights. More than once, I have stopped and given my business card to a person who was hit by a red-light runner. I was later contacted by the lawyer for one of the runners and questioned about why I stopped. I said I was tired of people lying about accidents and getting off. SAM BURCHFIELD Wichita

Hope for country There is still hope for our state and country based on what was published on The Eagle’s Opinion pages on June 10: The Eagle editorial board wrote the editorial “Judges did their job” about redistricting. University of Kansas professor Burdett Loomis wrote “Tax cuts benefit few.” And area letter writers wrote “Opening volley,” “Wrong priority,” “Do with less?” and “Governor’s rhetoric is not reality.” If only there were more such “big picture” thinkers in our state and in Congress.

Amid the confusion and controversy of this election year, it may be difficult to focus on the important fundamental issues that affect our daily lives. But through the distractions, one major issue deserves our full attention. That issue is water – the physical basis for our existence and a valuable resource that assures our future economic success. For water customers Brewer served by the city of Wichita, our future supply is preserved in the underground reservoir northwest of the city. The Equus Beds aquifer provides water to one out of every five Kansans. The city of Wichita holds senior rights to the Equus Beds but readily shares this critical resource with agricultural production, other municipalities and domestic wells. For the past five years, the city has asked the state government to share the costs of the Equus Beds Aquifer Storage and Recovery (ASR) project, a $220 million investment of Wichita city water revenues that assures our water supply through the year 2050. The project takes excess water from the Little Arkansas River, treats it to drinking water standard, and injects it back into the aquifer for later use. To date, the state has contributed just more than $3 million. That amount includes $500,000 from the recently adjourned 2012 Kansas Legislature. Given the formidable agenda of tax reform, reapportionment and other weighty issues that faced Gov. Sam Brownback and the Legislature this year, the city is extremely grateful for this favorable outcome. Now, the process begins anew, as the city works with the Kansas Water Authority to advance next year’s funding request. The city is seeking an additional $2 million in state funding as a final state payment toward the costs of the ASR project. Those funds could come from several sources, including the state water fund, gaming revenues or the state general fund. Over the past several years of fiscal distress, the Legislature has been unable to honor its statutory obligation to contribute $6 million annually from the state’s general fund in support of the state’s water budget. Consequently, the fee-based water fund has been the primary revenue source for the

Wichita has asked the state government to share the costs of the Equus Beds Aquifer Storage and Recovery project. annual Kansas Water Office budget. That fund includes more than $1 million annually in state-assessed fees paid by Wichita water customers. A solid base of state funding is essential to Kansas water policy. The state needs to take this fiscal responsibility much more seriously, whether through the general fund or some other source. Though hugely important to the future of Wichita’s water customers, the ASR project is only one of several critical policy issues facing the Kansas Water Authority and the Legislature. This past legislative session, the governor led a timely discussion of state water policy that resulted in fundamental policy changes. The decades-old “use it or lose it” policy was revoked, a change that will encourage water conservation. The governor’s “flex” plan will allow irrigators to manage their annual water allocation over a five-year period – another commonsense change to better manage our water resources. It is time to take this public policy discussion further and revisit the relationship between municipalities and agriculture. Municipalities need a stronger voice at the water-policy table. The dialogue between the state and municipal water users touches several major issues, including Equus Beds water rights, the threat of saltwater intrusion and adequate regulation. I look forward to the opportunity to engage that dialogue over the next several months. With the governor’s continued leadership in refining the state’s water policy, I’m optimistic that every citizen of Kansas will benefit from the outcome. Carl Brewer is mayor of Wichita.

Should U.S. continue its drone strikes? The recent U.S. drone strike that killed al-Qaida’s No. 2 leader at a house in northern Pakistan was by any measure a step forward in the war on terrorism. Drones have been a remarkably effective way to hunt down terrorist leaders and keep others cowering. Six top al-Qaida leaders have been killed in Pakistan and Yemen in the past year. That success has generated bipartisan support and 83 percent public approval in the U.S. for the program. There are valid concerns about civilian casualties, rules of engagement and more.

The next day the city manager, crying about higher jail fees, talks about how much harder it will be to balance the budget. We might not have a budget crunch if the City Council stopped shrinking the tax base. ■ ■ ■ It appears that the voters wisely rejected the tax rebate for a hotel that isn’t even needed. An article said there are too many hotel rooms in Wichita (June 14 Business Today).

AREA NEWS IN BRIEF Two inmates escape from Winfield prison Wichita-area law enforcement officers were looking for two minimum-security inmates who escaped from the Winfield Correctional Facility on Saturday. Prison officials said Robert E. Cook, 52, was last seen at 2:50 p.m. driving a white panel truck with a lift on the back. He is described as white, 5-foot-10, 255 pounds, with gray hair and hazel eyes. He was serving time on a Pratt County conviction for aggravated indecent solicitation of a child. Kansas Department of Transportation records show he has prior property crime convictions in Sedgwick, Butler, Harvey, Cowley and Sumner counties. Cook was accompanied by Frank Crutchfield, 48, who is white, 5-foot-11, 231 pounds, with red hair and blue eyes. He was serving time for burglary, theft and criminal damage to property convictions in Sedgwick County. Both men were last seen wearing blue shirts, blue jeans and state-issued boots. Anyone who sees the inmates is asked to call 911.

Airport may get 4th security lane BY BILL WILSON The Wichita Eagle

It’s going to be faster to board airplanes at Mid-Continent Airport and easier to financially manage the closed Brooks Landfill if the Wichita City Council agrees with two staff initiatives during Tuesday’s meeting. Council members will consider a request to spend $110,000 for a fourth security checkpoint lane at Mid-Continent, a request endorsed by the Transportation Safety Administration. And they’ll consider changing a policy that is intended to guarantee enough cash on hand for the closed landfill.

At the airport, the city will consider spending unused budgeted money from the 2011 renovation of the east data center in the existing terminal. City Manager Robert Layton said that growing “bottleneck and screening” problems in the early morning have produced excessive wait times and forced some passengers to miss flights. It’s an issue that must be quickly addressed, city officials said, despite the estimated three years left before a new terminal comes on line at the airport. “We’ve had lots of passengers and the airlines complain about it,” Layton said. “They’ve felt that people

Support group aims to help hoarders


A new support program for people who have trouble hoarding will begin meeting this week. The Clutter Cleaners Club will meet from 2:30 to 4 p.m. Wednesday, and the first Wednesday of every month, at the West River Plaza Bistro, 2622 W. Central Ave. The meetings are free and open to the public.

TV program to focus on life of Father Kapaun The Rev. John Hotze, the Wichita priest who led the Church’s investigation of Father Emil Kapaun’s candidacy for sainthood, will appear on a Catholic national cable television show on July 4 to talk about Kapaun’s life. Hotze, who works for the Diocese of Wichita, will appear at 7 p.m. on “EWTN Live,” a program on the EWTN network. Hotze said the Diocese is still in close touch with the Vatican after having turned over thousands of documents supporting Kapaun’s candidacy for sainthood. Kapaun became a hero in the Korean War, saving hundreds of lives of soldiers in battle and in North Korean prison camps. He died in one of those camps in 1951. Military leaders have nominated him for the Medal of Honor. — Roy Wenzl

The proposed city work includes reconfigured glass partitions, electrical and data connection modifications and relocated surveillance cameras.

have missed flights because of the situation, so this is something that we feel needs attention.” The number of airline seats departing Mid-Continent during the morning rush increased by 92 percent between January and March, according to Victor White, the city’s director of airports. As a result, in March, the average and peak wait times at the checkpoint increased by 57 percent and 117 percent, respectively, compared with January. In March, MidContinent had screening waits exceed 30 minutes for the first time since 2007. More than half of the wait times between 5 and 6:30 a.m. daily


■■■ Goodwin’s feelings took him by surprise even though he is finishing up studies to be a marriage and family counselor at Friends University. He decided he wanted to help people with those relationships even before he was married, back home in Oklahoma City. And as part of a practicum, he had counseled parents in Wichita before he had his own child. “I’ve seen individuals, couples, families, and working with them in that aspect has just been life-changing, to say the least,” Goodwin said last week after feeding his son,

Lance Goodwin said he had no idea what it would be like to be a father until his 3-month-old son, Locke, was born. Locke, who was born in March. The birth of his own baby has “changed the dimension” of counseling, Goodwin said. “It does open up your mind sight a little bit to connect well with those who do have newborn children and know all the struggles that go along

with that as well as all of the good times,” he said. Goodwin, 25, found his own help ahead of the birth by attending a boot camp for fathers at Via Christi Health. The boot camp is free to all

The dust kicked up by federal judges’ political redistricting of Kansas has settled down to the precinct level. Sedgwick County Election Commissioner Tabitha Lehman said her office is being forced to draw up about 50 new election precincts because of the political boundaries. Federal judges stepped in to draw new boundaries for congressional and legislative districts in the state after the Legislature failed to do so. Now Lehman and her staff, which includes some extra temp help, are sorting things out and trying to come up with new detailed precinct maps. “It’s pretty complicated and very time-consuming,” she said. A precinct is basically a neighborhood or part of a neighborhood defined for political purposes. Your precinct determines where you vote. Election officials have gone precinct by precinct to determine whether precincts have been moved, have been split or remain the same. In those that have been split, Lehman’s office has to take a street-level view and go house by house in some areas. They are finding cases where a house on one side of the street is in a different precinct from a house on the other side, she said. One precinct in Derby, for

It’s a two-hour class that teaches parents the five steps to calming a crying baby, mimicking what the baby experienced in the womb. One of the ways is to provide a shushing noise akin to the sound of blood rushing through arteries surrounding the womb. “It’s like dope for babies,” Hutchinson said. Goodwin said he enjoyed the boot camp a lot. “I received a lot of sound advice from a couple of guys who have been there, done that and gotten the T-shirt kind of thing,” he said. “A lot of information any dad needs

It actually happened in his room, in the outlet closest to his bassinet. “Knowing the safety procedures, I was really glad I took that class, because that was one of the things they talked about in there.” Goodwin’s wife, Samantha, is a nurse who just went back to work last week, pulling the overnight shift. “That earns her Mother of the Year award right there,” Lance Goodwin said.

Two blocks away on North Burns, volunteers from Martin Pringle law firm were fixing doors, clearing overgrown bushes, landscaping and fixing guttering. “They are wonderful,” said the homeowner. Because she lives alone, she didn’t want her name used. The helpers are doing things she can’t do for herself, she said. “I’m just in awe watching them,” she said. “They’re doing a fantastic job and I appreciate it.”

Along with the cleanup, volunteers held a lunchtime celebration in the park for the neighborhood with a barbecue, games and kids’ activities. Donors contributed to the project’s $15,000 budget, which included a $5,000 gift from Carlos O’Kelly’s restaurants, the presiding sponsor. “Any kind of that work builds your heart,” said Jon Rolph, who leads the company managing Carlos O’Kelly’s. Other sponsors included Hutton Construction, Adecco, Star Lumber, Sheldon Architecture, Bank of the West, Colab, Emprise Bank, Intrust Bank, Morris Laing, Martin Pringle, Grubb & Ellis, Professional Engineering Consultants and Koch Industries.

Hawker Beechcraft plan outlines options INSIDE, 7B

Hawker Beechcraft is considering three options as part of its bankruptcy filing.

Report finds low risk of quakes from fracking

Hawker Beechcraft’s Chapter 11 bankruptcy filing includes a plan called “Project Flight,” which assesses what the company could look like as it emerges from reorganization. The document, among the materials provided by Hawker Beechcraft as an exhibit when the company filed for bankruptcy last month, outlines three options, each one eliminating all or some business jet models. The “strategic options” assessment, dated April 5, gives the court and the public an indication of the direction that Hawker Beechcraft CEO Robert “Steve” Miller envisions for the debt-

The three options Hawker is considering for changing its lineup of products. plagued aircraft manufacturer. In all three options, Hawker Beechcraft would keep its military aircraft, King Air and piston business. But all three options eliminate the Premier jet program and halt development of the Hawker 200, an upgraded Premier. Two of the three options halt production of the Hawker 4000 business jet. One option eliminates business jet production altogether. “It’s not good news,” Teal Group aerospace analyst Richard Aboulafia

said of the options. “There’s no way to put a brave face on this,” Aboulafia said. “They are getting rid of debt, but they’re also getting rid of product and market share. It’s not a happy story. It means that a lot of the very hard work in creating new technology and new products over the last 15 years have reached somewhat of a dead end.” As the company moves through the bankruptcy process, there has been speculation about whether ownership of the company would change and how – and whether it would remain intact or whether parts of it might be sold.

More Kansas banks involved in mergers


WASHINGTON — The controversial practice of hydraulic fracturing to extract natural gas does not pose a high risk for triggering earthquakes large enough to feel, but other types of energyrelated drilling can make the ground noticeably shake, a major government science report concludes. Even those man-made tremors large enough to be an issue are very rare, says a special report by the National Research Council. In more than 90 years of monitoring, human activity has been shown to trigger only 154 quakes, most of them moderate or small, and only 60 of them in the United States. That’s compared to a global average of about 14,450 earthquakes of magnitude 4.0 or greater every year, said the report, released Friday. Most of those are caused by gas and oil drilling the conventional way, damming rivers, deep injections of wastewater and purposeful flooding. Only two worldwide instances of shaking – a magnitude 2.8 tremor in Oklahoma and a 2.3 magnitude shaking in England – can be attributed to hydraulic fracturing, a specific method of extracting gas by injection of fluids sometimes called “fracking,” the report said. Both were last year. “There’s a whole bunch of wells that have been drilled, let’s say for wastewater, and the number of events have been pretty small,” said report chairman Murray Hitzman, a professor of economic geology at the Colorado School of Mines. “Is it a huge problem? The report says basically no. Is it something we should look at and think about? Yes.” With increased drilling to satisfy the country’s thirst for energy, it is important to watch injection and other wells better and consider potential repercussions before starting, the report said. No one has been killed, nor has there been major damage, from man-made quakes in the United States, said the report by the council, which is part of the National Academy of Sciences, a private nonprofit institution that provides expert advice to the government. “There is potential to produce significant seismic events that can be felt and cause damage and public concern,” the report said.

ergers and acquisitions among Kansas-chartered banks are up in the first half of the year. That’s according to data from the Office of the State Bank Commissioner, which shows that banks have filed applications for 10 deals through May. Counting locally based Equity Bank, which announced this month its plans to acquire First Community Bank in Lee’s Summit, Mo., the number of deals this year is 11: just one deal shy of the 12

mergers and acquisitions recorded in each of the past two years. Industry officials said it’s too early to say it signals a trend of more mergers and acquisitions, but a number of factors are making the sale and purchase of a bank a more attractive option than in the past. “I think the short answer is bankers are more optimistic about the future of their industry, and I think that some of the problems they faced that were due to the economic downturn are in the rear-view mirror now,” said Chuck Marshall, a banking consultant for the financial institutions group at Kennedy and Coe.

Of all the ubiquitous Farhas in Wichita, Ted Farha is one of the most recognizable about town. In some circles, it’s for his music. “I love all kinds of music,” Farha said. He mostly plays bluegrass, country and folk with Pop & the Boys and his new band, Haymakers. In other circles, Farha and his brother, Ed, are known for their Farha Construction, a company they started in 1978. Ted Farha attended only a couple of college classes, but Fran Jabara, founder of the Center for Entrepreneurship at

Wichita State University, introduced the Farhas to the center’s Ron Christy. “We basically had our own private professor for over 10 years,” Farha said. “He helped us navigate and grow our business.” Through the years, all sorts of family members – children, nieces and nephews – have worked for the business. Ted Farha’s son Ben works there now. It was Ben Farha and his friend Trae Staats’ idea to start the company’s roofing division more than two years ago. Ted Farha’s son Mark owns Farha Development. Some of Farha Construction’s most recognizable current work is with downtown developers

Robert Eyster and Michael Ramsey, who have numerous projects in the works, such as redeveloping the former Protection One building at First and Market into apartments called the Lux. Did you have any reservations about going into business with your brother? No. … I looked up to my brother. … (In school) everybody knew Ed. People didn’t pick on me because I was Ed’s little brother. What role do each of you play in the business? I’m more of a people person. I like to go talk to people about work. … I used to tell people I get the work and Ed gets it done.

He pointed to induced quakes of magnitude 4 or larger in the past year in Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Colorado, New Mexico and Ohio, but said much of this happened too late for the research council to include in its study. Hitzman said it’s still too early to tell whether those recent quakes would have changed the report’s conclusions.

From Page 5B You haven’t had much formal training in the business, have you? I learned it on the job. I learned it when I worked for other general contractors. Is there an area that you specialize in? We built a lot of restaurants over the years. … We built Ya Ya’s … Bella Luna … Larkspur. … We’ve built about 17 or 18 Spangles. Now we’re doing a lot of multifamily. There was a time that we were building a lot of retail centers when they were hot. … We built most of the buildings at Bradley Fair. As Bradley Fair expanded every year or two, we’d build another 20,000- or 30,000-square-foot building. What do you like about the business? I like being a part of the creative and development process. I love the people. I love seeing things go together. You know, taking an old, dilapidated building like the Zelman or the Renfro that we’re working on right now … and then (turning) it into a really cool space, you know, saving all the historic fabric of the building. … Taking a building that’s 75 or 100 years old and giving it another 50 or 100 years. To restore an old building and give it a new life is a much greener way of building than starting from scratch. Being a part of that whole process is … very rewarding. Such as converting the Finn family’s former warehouse into the Finn Lofts on Commerce Street? The Finn project was one of the coolest projects we’ve ever done. What’s it like working said. The man-made quakes that Ellsworth has been seeing are almost all related to wastewater injection, he said. Ellsworth said he agreed with the research council that “hydraulic fracturing does not seem to pose much risk for earthquake activity.” If the country starts capturing the global warming gas carbon dioxide from coal power plants and injecting it underground, there is potential for larger quakes given the amount of the heat-trapping gas that would have to be buried, the council’s report said. That’s an issue that needs more study, it said. Congress and the Department of Energy requested the 240-page report.

with Eyster and Ramsey? It’s a piece of cake. … We have a similar vision and a similar love for downtown. I remember coming down here when I was 10. … It was so much fun just to be down here. All those years, for it to be so … in atrophy – all these empty buildings and everybody’s moved out. It was sad to see. But you think that’s changing? We could certainly have a vital downtown again. I really believe it. There’s a lot of people who do. … I just want to be a part of all that stuff. Anything keep you up at night? Lots of stuff. Making sure that we have everything budgeted properly. … Just worrying about doing a good job. Each of your four kids at one point worked for you,

right? I just thought they need to be around commerce. … Growing up, I watched my dad buy and sell stuff, and I think I learned a lot about how … business works. But you didn’t encourage them to go into the business? My boys are both in construction without my prodding. It wasn’t like, “Come back here and do this thing with me.” I love this business, but not everybody does. You’re happy that they’re in it, though? It’s a great business for them to be in. I couldn’t be happier for them because they’re doing what they want to do. That’s kind of icing on the cake. I get to work with my boys every day. Reach Carrie Rengers at 316-268-6340 or

HAWKER From Page 5B




According to documents filed as part of Hawker Beechcraft’s bankruptcy, the company is considering three options:

Option B This option calls for the continuation of Beechcraft and military aircraft production and retains production of the Hawker 900 business jet. It also keeps the Little Rock production facility. The scenario stops support for the Hawker 4000 and Premier installed base, halts its engineering support and transfers of its warranty and support to a residual buyer. It would continue to support the Hawker 800 and 900 fleet. The company also would invest long term in the Hawker 900 to keep it competitive. Under this scenario, the company projects 2013 revenue of $2.45 billion in 2013, rising annually to $2.91 billion in 2016. The benefits of this option include a “good leverage” for potential price improvement in the mid-size jet segment, and it keeps the company in the jet business. Risks include making sure products are competitive by 2015.

it said, something that is “highly unlikely” to achieve. “Failure of such reductions will render continued production of the H4000 impractical,” the document said Under Option C, the company would make longterm investments to keep the Hawker 4000 competitive and would continue to support warranty and service agreements for the Premier and Hawker 4000 business jets. The scenario forecasts 2013 revenue of $2.85 billion rising to $3.54 billion in 2016. On the other hand, it requires supplier concessions, constrains facility consolidation and is highly complex. The document also debates the pros and cons of shutting down the Hawker 900 line. Keeping the model has benefits. If the market improves, for example, the plane won’t likely face new competition until 2015, and it would maintain the Hawker brand for “future growth opportunities.” Shutting down production, however, simplifies its operations and the management of facilities in Little Rock and Chester. But by 2015, the Hawker 900 will face significant competition from Embraer’s Legacy 450 and 500, Bombardier’s Learjet 85 and Cessna’s Citation Latitude. To keep the model competitive would require an investment of $40 million to $60 million for avionics and interior upgrades.

human being, apparently, is going to be held responsible for substantial criminal activity by a corporation,” U.S. District Court Judge Douglas Woodlock said in court while declaring the agreement official on Oct. 16, 2009. Rarely do health care executives go to jail for misdeeds. One exception was the case brought against medical device maker Synthes Inc., of West Chester, Pa. Besides criminal and civil charges against the company, four executives were sent to prison in 2011. Johnson & Johnson is scheduled to close on its $19.7

with some PC makers on design, it has shied away from developing the machines and selling them under the Microsoft brand. The shift in strategy has the potential to sour Microsoft’s relationship with some PC partners, many of which have been investing to develop Windows 8 tablets themselves and may not want to compete directly with Microsoft. The change may also alter profitability in the Windows business, which now sells just software with operating margins of more than 60 percent.

billion purchase of Synthes on Thursday. If its settlement with the government comes anytime soon, it would not be the first coincidence of a court fine of a few billion dollars being overshadowed by an acquisition costing many times more. A few hours before Woodlock spoke in court in 2009, Pfizer announced it had spent $68 billion to acquire Wyeth Pharmaceuticals. Part of the Pfizer case stemmed from work done by the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Philadelphia, as does the Johnson & Johnson investigation. Both cases involved

antipsychotic drugs produced by the companies: Geodon for Pfizer and Risperdal for Johnson & Johnson. Philadelphia attorney Stephen Sheller represented one of the whistle-blowers in the Pfizer case and has clients suing Johnson & Johnson. He said part of the problem is that doctors are allowed to prescribe antipsychotic drugs for conditions not approved by the FDA for a wide variety of vague mental health conditions. “There is no objective test to tell if someone is crazy,” he said. “Letting the doctors write offlabel is costing taxpayers so

Harrington String Quartet launches Prairie Pines season

or more than 16 years, nationallyrecognized chamber groups have performed at a charming rustic log theater just north of Wichita. Situated on a tree farm and surrounded by imported, century-old stone bridges, Chamber Music at the Barn once again offers classic hits, jazz favorites and a sprinkling of mandolin music. “We’re a kind of golden jewel,” said Bob Scott, Prairie Pines owner. “People get a chance to be out in the country with friends and listen to wonderful music in a very relaxed atmosphere.” The Harrington String Quartet will play works by Haydn, Schumann and Schoenberg on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday evenings. Catherine Consiglio, the Barn’s artistic director and principal violist for the Wichita Symphony Orchestra, arranged this interesting evening featuring German-speaking composers. “I think it’s really going to entrance people,” said Consiglio, who also will perform with former Wichita Symphony cellist Andrew Kolb as part of a sextet during the Schoenberg piece. “It’s an

amazing evening.” Arnold Schoenberg’s “Verklarte Nacht” or “Transfigured Night” is the evening’s featured work. Schoenberg (1874-1951) composed this piece in Austria in 1899. “Transfigured Night” is based on a poem by German-born Richard Dehmel. The poem, of the same name, tells of an evening stroll that changes a couple’s destiny. As a young woman walks under a moonlit sky, she confesses that she is carrying an illegitimate child in her womb. The young

man that she walks with listens intently and eventually informs her that he will help her with the child. “It’s a very difficult piece in the sextet repertoire,” Consiglio said. “It’s very rare that you get to hear it in live performance because it is so challenging.” Consiglio, also a professor of viola at Wichita State University, calls this work magical. “The music parallels almost exactly the poem, and that’s what is so fascinating

about it,” she said. Former Wichita Symphony violinist and member of the Harrington String Quartet, Keith Redpath, said he is excited about Schoenberg’s work. “He pulls out all the stops as far as musically depicting the core of the feelings in that poem,” Redpath said. “It’s almost hyper-romantic.” Redpath will perform works with fellow Please see CHAMBER, Page 2C

As a born-and-bred Catholic, Cary Hesse is delighted to be playing one of the five eccentric but lovable nuns of “Nunsense,” which opens Thursday at the Forum Theatre, because she gets to deliver a little payback to some of the nuns who shaped her own life. “I’m not actually imitating any of them when I play Sister Robert Anne, who grew up tough in the Bronx and is pretty far out there,” said Hesse, a native Wichitan and 11th of 13 children who went all the way through parochial schools here. “But I am drawing inspiration from several of them because they were such great mentors. Sister Mary Clare would actually jump rope

Crown Uptown’s ‘A Chorus Line’ sparkles, uplifts BY BOB CURTRIGHT Eagle correspondent

“A Chorus Line” probably has the best curtain call ever written for the Broadway stage because it actually means something to complete the story rather than just providing a convenient spot to honor the actors who’ve put their hearts and souls — and very busy feet — into their roles for the past two hours. After we’ve watched 17 eager dance hopefuls desperately competing for only eight spots in the chorus line of an upcoming Broadway show, they return in triumph — and in identical glittery gold costumes — to strut their stuff a la opening night. The exquisite irony, of course, is that the show’s purpose is to reveal all the hopes, dreams, loves, heartbreaks, quirks and foibles of the dancers to make them real individuals to us, then in one glossy, glitzy, high-kicking moment let them all recede


Douglass teacher to perform at Lincoln Center Douglass High School choir teacher Brian Stranghoner is scheduled to perform tenor solos in Handel’s “Messiah” at 8 p.m. today in New York City’s Lincoln Center. Stranghoner sent in an audition tape to New Yorkbased Manhattan Concert Productions and was recently notified that he would be one of the soloists. The concert will be directed by Donald Neuen, Director of Choral Activities at the University of California-Los Angeles. In 1995, Stranghoner was selected as a soloist in a production of Verdi’s “Requiem” at Carnegie Hall. — Matt Riedl

women inside the habit.” “Nunsense,” the goofy, affectionate and somewhat irreverent 1985 musical by Dan Goggin that became the second longest-running off-Broadway show and spawned six sequels from “The Second Coming” to “Nunset Boulevard,” will run through July 15 at the Forum. This show deals with a group of nuns putting on a last-minute, slap-dash, variety show fundraiser, and director Kathryn Page Hauptman said the entire evening will be structured like a church charity event. Bingo will be offered before the show beginning at 7 p.m., and a dessert auction — angel food and devil’s food cakes, what else? — will be offered during intermission. There also will be black-andwhite Nun Cookies and Nun-punch. “You don’t have to be Catholic to fall in love with these zany nuns,” said Page Hauptman, who grew up Methodist in Wichita but used to ride by St. Joseph Convent every day and once informed her surprised mother that she wanted to become a nun when she grew up. She didn’t, of course. But Page Hauptman said that she’s doing the next best thing by directing this show about special women in a specialized workplace with all their triumphs and frustrations — sort of “9 to 5” but with habits. “I love the relationship among the sisters. It’s so universal. Everybody can relate them to people they know, whether a teacher or friend or role model,” she said. “I love that, even though they are saintly, they have flaws like every human. One is ambitious, one is self-centered, one is a cut-up. This show totally humanizes them. I love that

tertaining the heck out of us. There’s not a shaky cast member or a draggy moment, although there were a couple of minor microphone miscues opening night because of the complex action. That’s easily corrected for future performances. Directed by Matthew Rumsey, the show is broken into two acts rather than run straight through as usual. Surprisingly, that doesn’t trip up the pace even for purists because Rumsey found a natural break that makes dramatic sense. He keeps the show firmly set in 1975 without trying to update cultural touchstones such as “Peyton Place.” But the show doesn’t feel either dated or nostalgic. Rumsey and choreographer Gigi Gans Royle, who preserved many of Michael Bennett’s original steps but reinterpreted them with her own vision, make this show as fresh, surprising, thrilling and relevant as it was on opening night 37 years ago. Bravo to all the cast members for bringing their quirky

characters to credible, affecting life. In only a short time, we begin to know and care about each one and their life decisions and experiences that brought them together in this moment. But there are a few that should be mentioned specifically. Luke Johnson is steady and authoritative while providing a rainbow of emotions as the demanding choreographer Zach, all done without benefit of gestures or facial expressions because he is essentially just a voice coming from the middle of the darkened auditorium. Constanza Palavecino, a native Chilean now based in New York, plays defensive Puerto Rican dancer Diana Morales, who felt held back by bigoted teachers. Palavecino has a powerful and evocative voice that makes the crucial “What I Did For Love” indelible. Allison Nock is a limber, long-legged dynamo for her dance solo to “The Music and the Mirror” as Cassie, who flopped as a soloist and is

Jacob January is hilarious as the flamboyantly gay Bobby, who carries on in silent pantomime during dream sequences. Aaron Craven as Zach’s assistant, Larry, and Michael Sherry as a Jewish dancer who hides his ethnicity under the pseudo-personality Gregory Gardner, have impressively strong, straight, rock-solid ballet extensions and jetes.

But the heart of the show is Ryan Naimy as Paul, whose revelations of child abuse, neglect and disapproval, and finally finding redemption in the beautiful fantasy world of dance, will break your heart — and lift your spirits. The 10-member pit orchestra conducted by Philip Taylor under supervision of Jesse Warkentin provided strong, full support — particularly the reeds with a mellow, nonsqueaky sax — for Marvin Hamlisch’s jazzy, award-winning score.

All Harrington Quartet musicians are on the faculty of West Texas A & M University and members of the Amarillo Symphony. The Chamber concert opens with Haydn’s String Quartet No. 2 in E-flat major, also known as “The Joke.” “Haydn is well-known for having a lot of humor,” Redpath said. “Haydn plays a joke on his audience in a cute and humorous way.” The next work performed by the quartet is Schumann’s String Quartet in A major. Schumann wrote this piece for his wife, Clara. “It has a very rich, lush, warm, fuzzy feeling throughout,” Redpath said. “There’s a lot of tenderness.” “Transfigured Night” will feature a short talk by Wichita State University music

professor Walter Mays. Dinner is available for purchase before the concert. Redpath said he is thrilled to be back at The Barn. He played during the 1997 inaugural season. “It’s a beautiful place to perform,” Redpath said. “It’s the ideal setting for chamber music.”

‘Gone Girl’ full of surprises


“ ‘The Iliad’ was written on papyrus without punctuation, without even spaces between words. Imagine the complaints from the financial department — ‘You want to put extra papyrus in between every word?’ The critics were probably saying, ‘You are so dumbing down these canonical texts.’ ”

BY AMANDA ST. AMAND St. Louis Post-Dispatch

“Gone Girl” by Gillian Flynn (Crown, 432 pages, $25) I picked up “Gone Girl” because the plot sounded intriguing. I put it down two days later, bleary-eyed and oh-so-satisfied after reading a story that left me surprised, disgusted, and riveted by its twists and turns. When you start Gillian Flynn’s latest book, it seems to be a story we’ve heard before — a woman disappears and her husband doesn’t seem to be as distraught as he should be. But Flynn turns this story into something much more. Amy and Nick Dunne seem like an ideal couple in less than ideal circumstances. They had been living and working in New York until the recession left both of these writers unemployed. That wouldn’t be a problem in the short-term, except that nearly all the $750,000 or so in Amy’s trust fund suddenly needs to be lent back to her parents, who made the money with a series of children’s books about “Amazing Amy.” When Nick gets a call from his twin sister, Margo, that their mother is dying of cancer, the couple decide to move back to his hometown of North Carthage, Mo., to help with her care. Their marriage already has some strains — being jobless in New York is easy on no one — but the move to the Midwest makes things much worse. The story is told in alternating chapters from Nick and Amy’s points of view. Nick’s is written in the present, while Amy’s account comes from her diary dating back to how she met her husband. As Nick tells in his version, “Amy didn’t care to know my family, didn’t want to know my birthplace, and yet for some reason I thought moving home would be a good idea.” Nick borrows the last of Amy’s trust fund to buy and run a bar with his sister, where he spends long hours nearly every day while Amy assumes a more active role in helping care for Nick’s dying mother. Their fifth wedding anniversary arrives with Amy making breakfast for her husband and Nick dreading every word and act from his wife. Nick leaves that morning with Amy still at home. When he comes home later in the day, she’s gone. And quickly enough, he becomes the main “person of interest” in her disappearance. Flynn starts spilling out the implicating evidence a little at a time. Nick had been charging up a storm on credit cards. Nick had not been spending enough time with Amy. He has no real alibi for the morning of her disappearance and — most damning — Nick was having an affair. The scene at the Dunnes’ house, a rented McMansion in a mostly vacant subdivision, looks bad. The crime scene seems staged. There’s evidence that blood has been shed and then cleaned up. Before a week has passed since Amy’s disappearance, the case becomes a media sensation in part because of coverage on tabloid-style shows: So readers are fairly convinced that Nick is the typical cad of a husband, fooling around and spending his wife’s money and scheming to find a way to get rid of Amy, who has vanished without a trace. Until Flynn twists that tired plot into a pretzel. Giving more details would be a spoiler of the worst order. A good story presents a reader with a problem that has to be resolved and a few surprises along the way. A great story gives a reader a problem and leads you along a path, then dumps you off a cliff and into a jungle of plot twists, character revelations and back stories that you could not have imagined. “Gone Girl” does just that.


NEW & RECOMMENDED “Gone Girl” by Gillian Flynn (Crown, $25) “Marriage can be a real killer.” In Nick and Amy Dunne’s case, it is a literal statement, rather than metaphorical. On the evening of their fifth anniversary, Amy disappears. Under the watch of the small Missouri town and Amy’s overprotective parents, Nick parades an endless series of lies: he stands by his innocence, but that raises the question: where is his wife? With razor-sharp wit, and full of psychological insight, Flynn delivers a fast-paced, dark, and ingeniously plotted thriller. “Little Century,” by Anna Keesey (Farrar, Straus and Giroux, $26) In the town of Century, Oregon, there is a battle raging: the cattlemen hate the shepherds, and the shepherds hate the cattlemen. In this charged climate, where small incidents of violence quickly escalate, threatening to implode the town, orphan Esther Chambers arrives, a character with moral clarity and wisdom beyond her age. Beautiful language, memorable characters and compelling story, “Little Century” is historical fiction at its best. Watermark best sellers 1. "The Chaperone" by Laura Moriarty 2.

Paul Theroux’s latest novel is set in Malawi, where he spent time in the Peace Corps


“The Lower River” by Paul Theroux (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, 336 pages, $25) As a young man Paul Theroux spent a number of years as a Peace Corps volunteer in the squalor of Malawi, a landlocked African country squeezed between Mozambique, Tanzania and Zambia. A writer possessed of a perfervid imagination, with not a flyspeck of cowardice marring his resume, Theroux has, over the many intervening years since that formative Peace Corps experience, produced a large body of work which includes the highly acclaimed novels “My Other Self” and “The Mosquito Coast,” though he remains best known for his spectacularly daring travel accounts like the recent “Dark Star Safari” and “The Happy Isles of Oceania.” In “The Lower River,” Theroux returns to Malawi in his imagination, telling the story of Ellis Hock, a Medford, Mass., menswear salesman whose disappointments, failed marriage, and rotted, empty human relationships somehow impel him to travel back to Malawi, where he’d once served as a Peace Corps volunteer and where he fantasized he’d been happy once, doing good works for the villagers of Malabo on the lower river. We sense that Hock’s memory of Malabo is flawed, though he maintains his memories intact until they fail him. He built a school and taught English. He fell in love with a village girl named Gala who would have returned his affections had she not been promised to another. He dallied with other girls who were not so morally attached to their futures. He was doing useful things. He



was also known and feared in Malabo as the man who loved snakes and collected them, giving him an aura of power and invincibility over the superstitious natives. “The Lower River” leaves its rails fairly early. Before departing for Africa, Hock hears about a woman in a neighboring town who owns a python. Hock’s fantasies about snakes give him leave to visit the woman. The reader is subjected thereafter to a long series of embarrassing scenes intended, perhaps, to prefigure Hock’s “being eaten” by Africa. Once in Malawi, Hock collects a bank draft in the Malawian capital and heads into the bush with his pants stuffed with cash. He’s been warned of the dangers, given that the roads are prowled by thieves, young brigands, and kidnappers. Heedless of these direct warnings and disregarding the dictates of common sense, Hock goes down the road from Blantyre into what can only be called the “heart of darkness.” Then, having arrived in Malabo, Hock discovers that he school he built in the 1960s has fallen into chaotic disrepair, the village itself is in the throes of social and political disarray, and his personal powers, once all-encompassing, have become meaningless. The village headman, an arch-deacon of corruption named Festus Manyenga, recognizes Hock for the pigeon he is, a mzungu (white man) who can be exploited and cast aside.

Theroux certainly knows east Africa, its calamitously dark nights which fall as suddenly as a guillotine, its dry odor of eucalyptus, its dense smell of wood smoke and sweat. There are many pages that reveal Theroux’s deep understanding of the physical environment of Malawi. However, Theroux’s book betrays a wealth of cliches in its telling of a white man pursuing his own grim end amid Africa’s puzzlements, illnesses and malodors. For example, Hock is tended to by Zizi (Gala’s granddaughter) who winds up his peculiar sexual fetish, a cliche which has shown itself in some of Theroux’s other work about Africa. Hock’s money is stolen in tiny increments for various reasons and by various villains, though mostly by Manyenga, who prizes Hock as his hostage. Naturally (an eventuation which grows inevitably from the cliched premise), Hock grows feverish and ill, loses weight, and begins to die. When Zizi tries to help him escape, she is raped and sent back to Hock as a warning. Hock’s single personal effort to flee lands him at the compound of an international charity, where cartoonish characters suggestive of Angelina Jolie and Bono drop food from a helicopter, but ignore his pleas for help. All of this leads Theroux to some unnatural and fictionally uncomfortable observations about “development aid” and Western involvement in charity. In one 2005 opinion

A lovely memento of the Flint Hills BY LISA MCLENDON The Wichita Eagle

If you went to the Symphony in the Flint Hills last weekend, you probably saw the Field Journal available as a memento of the occasion. But if you didn’t go to the symphony, you may still be interested in the Field Journal, because it’s far more than just a program for the event. The book — and it is a book, with hard covers, quality binding, fine paper and beautiful design — runs nearly 200 pages, the bulk of which are essays, poetry, histories, mini-biographies, remembrances and artworks about the Flint Hills, some general, some specific to the area around Bushong, the location of this year’s symphony. Because the Field Journal serves as a program as well, it also includes the schedule for the day of the symphony, program notes and lists of volunteers, sponsors and donors. A nice piece on the Flint Hills by Verlyn Klinkenborg, which originally appeared in National Geographic, opens the collection of writings. Other contributors include Jim Hoy and Thomas Fox Averill. There are pieces on the history, pre-history and geology of the


area, nature and wildlife, an interesting little bit about the baseball player who gave his name to Bushong, descriptions of cattle ranching both historical and modern, and poems. The book is illustrated in full color with maps, drawings, photographs (art and historic) and reproductions of paintings of the Flint Hills. Informative and artful, it’s a welldone celebration of the Flint Hills that anyone can appreciate. The Symphony in the Flint Hill Field Journal is available for $20 at Watermark Books in Wichita and online at

Book details life on a small family farm “Time’s Shadow: Remembering a Family Farm in Kansas” by Arnold J. Bauer (University Press of Kansas, 150 pages, $24.95) is a look back at a way of life that has all but disappeared. The author grew up on a 160-acre farm in Clay County, went to a one-room schoolhouse and lived through the Depression. The book contains Bauer’s own reminiscences mixed in with history. For example, he talks about water: how his family used cistern water and well water, how snakes rested in the cistern overflow in the summer, how water was raised in clanking tin cups. Then he describes the importance of water to pioneer families, how wells were sited (sometimes by “water witchers” with divining rods) and dug, and how, later, wells were drilled and windmills were used to bring up water. Readers with an interest in Kansas history and agriculture, as well as rural daily life in the 1930s-’50s, will find this book accessible and illuminating. Lisa McLendon is the Books page editor.

piece for the New York Times, Theroux hectored Bono as a “wealthy Irish rock star in a cowboy hat” — exactly the character who appears in “The Lower River.” In these matters it is impossible to sympathize with Hock or, for that matter, with Theroux, who should know better than to butter up intelligent readers with ideas that seem as stagnant as his view of Malawian village life. Likewise, it is impossible to sympathize with Hock’s sexual fantasies about the 16-year-old Zizi, who is little more than a personal servant, or with Hock’s own febrile character and morals. And it is impossible to sympathize with Theroux’s current fictional style, which proceeds with serial commas and lots and lots of semicolons. Most importantly it is impossible not to conjure a book that Theroux might have written had he himself gone back to that village in Malawi where he once served as a Peace Corps volunteer now 50 years ago. It would have been a distinguished travel book comparing what Theroux saw and understood of Malawi in his early 20s with what he sees now, both Malawi and the man having changed. It would be a challenging book, a serious book, and it would take a devoted heart, a heart that Theroux surely still possesses. Gaylord Dold is a professional writer living in Wichita.

Mosley’s new melodrama is outrageous perfection BY BOB CURTRIGHT Eagle correspondent

The unique fun of classic campy melodrama is that it allows — nay, demands — audience participation to cheer the stalwart hero, swoon over the beautiful heroine and boo/hiss the villain and vamp. That means that each show is different because of snide asides and ad libs by performers, often in answer to heckling from the audience. And after 15 years, Mosley Street Melodrama actors and audience regulars have got the routine perfected to a hilarious, pull-out-the-stops, unpredictable degree. To be sure, other local theaters, notably Wichita’s Cabaret Oldtown, have some degree of interplay between actors and audiences, usually a knowing look or flirty gesture to break the ice. But only Mosley Street encourages out-and-out one-upsmanship across the footlights. Audiences feel comfortable hooting at actors’ purposely awful dialogue, sort of like what folks do at midnight screenings of “The Rocky Horror Picture Show.” And actors even leave the stage to cheerfully confront their tormentors. And woe to anyone trying to quietly sneak off to the restroom during the show. Performers are sure to make a federal case out of it. On the night I attended, one actor even pursued one guy to the door, then brought him back to his seat so they could finish the scene, then gave him permission to seek relief. Such are the reactions to and permutations of the 15th anniversary show, written by local theater teacher/actor/ director Tom Frye, called — in spoofy melodrama form — “Michelle’s Club House, Or Ain’t Livin’ in Derby a Beach?” Plots are never important, of course. They’re only necessary to hang vaudeville routines, conventions and shtick upon. In this case, the plot involves two cousins — one the hero, the other the villain — jousting for a family fortune left to them from a relative who made millions supposedly selling cosmetics at Derby’s

SUNDAY’S PUZZLES BRIDGE/FRANK STEWART Cy the Cynic had been summoned for jury duty again, and as usual, he had managed to get excused. "I told the judge I would be a perfect juror," Cy said, "because I could tell if somebody was guilty just by looking at him." Certain experts have a reputation for finding missing queens. They have a "feel of the table" and can sniff out the location of a queen just by observing their opponents’ body language. Others lack that skill. The great Pietro Forquet insisted that guessing queens was his weakness. Usually, a bidding or play inference will provide a clue to the location of a queen. If an average player has no indication, he may fall back on an adage such as "the queen lies over the jack." Some players have eccentricities: The late Barry Crane varied his play depending on whether a missing queen lay in a major suit or a minor. If you want to guess queens by always finessing toward City Hall, fine. But sensible advice on finding the queen of trumps came from the distinguished journalist Alan Truscott: He said that when you have nothing else to go on, play the opening leader for that queen. In today’s deal, West leads a diamond against six spades, and South faces a clean guess in trumps. If he cashes the king and lets the jack ride, he makes the slam. Truscott based his advice on a valid presumption: Against many slams, the opening leader will look for a safe lead, and a trump may appear safe – unless he holds the queen.

DEAR ABBY: It’s Father’s Day and I’d like to salute one particular unsung hero — my dad. He was there for me and my sister despite a difficult workload throughout our childhood. He has always been generous with love and affection, and I have no doubt that he has sacrificed things he wanted personally for our benefit. Dad has been the calming voice during times of strife. He can fix anything from a broken washing machine to a broken heart. He has not only nurtured us, but our children as well. He has been our role model when it comes to setting an example of what a man, husband, father and grandfather should be. He is never judgmental and has always shown us the best in ourselves. He’s consistent in his love of God, country and family. He is patient, kind, generous and smart in ways I only wish I could be. To top it off, he found us the best mother we could have hoped for. They have been married 58 years. My unsung hero doesn’t wear a cape, but I do believe he has certainly earned a halo.

In addition, I’d like to extend a Happy Father’s Day to fathers everywhere — not only birth fathers but also stepfathers, foster fathers and those caring individuals who mentor youngsters whose parents are absent or deceased. Bless you all. DEAR ABBY: Will you please help librarians across the country clarify something that is generally misrepresented to the public?

computer. To someone who is proficient, it may seem strange that a person can’t simply lay a hand on a mouse and go. The reality is, computers and the Internet are not intuitive to those who haven’t been exposed to them — and there are many. While I don’t know of a librarian who wouldn’t like to offer unlimited assistance to computer users, libraries nationwide are losing staff due to budget cuts. At the same time, use of libraries is steadily increasing. It’s frustrating to disappoint patrons who expect to receive instruction in computer operation. We prefer they leave our building happy. So, Abby, please spread the word. Computers and Internet services vary from

DEAR CONCERNED CITIZEN: Thank you for shining a light on this important subject. Readers, if this letter is as disturbing to you as it is to me, write your congressional representative and express your concern. For lower- and middle-income people of every age, libraries have performed — and continue to perform — a vital function. Their budgets must not be slashed to the point that they can no longer fulfill their mission of informing and educating the public.




Cutting out the cruise-ship-organized port tours M ore questions are sent to me about port excursions than about any other topic. Learning the prices of those motorcoach tours sold by the cruise lines, and multiplying the cost by all the ports visited, most people react with anguish to the resulting total cost. And recently, one reader asked me to assess the options in five different cities that would be visited on a Mediterranean cruise scheduled for later this summer: Livorno, Civitavecchia, Naples, Venice and Split. The idea of touring in a motorcoach didn’t appeal, he wrote. Can’t he simply tour these places on his own? Here’s how I responded: The reader was right that a cruise ship-operated tour is not the best way to experience the ports on a Mediterranean cruise. They are, to begin with, ridiculously overpriced. And the way they are conducted — in a 40-person motorcoach filled with fellow passengers — is totally destructive to the authentic European experience that one enjoys by simply sightseeing on foot. That lesson was forcefully brought to my attention on a recent Mediterranean cruise that stopped in Istanbul. Most passengers crammed into a cruise line-operated motorcoach (charging $85

Injured dachshund cancels travel plans Q: I booked a trip a few weeks back to Regent Palms in the Turks and Caicos through a website called SniqueAway ( It didn’t allow for any refunds or changes. The booking appears to be made through a company called Classic Vacations. Last week, our dachshund ruptured a disk in her back and had to have major surgery. As a result, we need to stay close to home for a few weeks while she recuperates. I asked Classic Vacations if we could reschedule for an open date later in the summer. They said they contacted the hotel, which declined. I’ve since contacted the hotel and the chain directly via e-mail, but have gotten no response. While the hotel is completely within its rights to refuse my request, is it a good idea? There are numerous ways to improve customer yield at a hotel, particularly a higherend resort. Once you add up food, beverage, spa, excursions, beach rentals and gift shop purchases, it could easily be a significant portion of the room rate by the time all is said and done. By declining my request, their gain is whatever marginal cost is associated with the room not being occupied for a few days, and we both know


TRAVEL TROUBLESHOOTER that isn’t very much. Why would a customer forced to choose between caring for a sick dog and going on vacation consider that chain in the future? — Allan Keiter, Atlanta A: That’s an excellent question. First, let’s be absolutely clear: You’re not entitled to a refund or an exchange, at least according to SniqueAway’s terms, which you agreed to when you booked the room. But I thought you were entitled to an answer from the Regent Palms. Rules are rules, but there’s no excuse for giving a customer the cold shoulder. By the way, I also agree with your point. When it comes to a luxury hotel like the Regent Palms, it stands to make as much money on you through food and beverage purchases

or spa treatments than it did from your room rate, and maybe more. But it’s risky. If it allows you to switch dates and your original room is unoccupied, it would have to be reasonably assured that you’d spend more money than the room rate on extras, in order to recoup its loss. Given your circumstances, I’m not sure if you booked your vacation at the right site. Had you known that your dog would be injured, you might have gone to a traditional travel agent or booked directly with the hotel. And travel insurance might have covered any loss from your missed vacation. Unfortunately, an injury to your pet is impossible to predict. SniqueAway allowed you to change your reservation at no additional cost.

In Rome, you’ll need to confine yourself to one or two major attractions: the Roman Forum primarily, the Colosseum, the Vatican. ■ Split: I haven’t been to Split, so can’t help you there, but I have the feeling from photographs I have seen that its port area is within easy walking distance of the center of town.

hen Heather Eilerts runs through downtown Saturday for the Ballet Wichita 5K Art Run, she’ll likely hear bits of an aria, a blast of jazz, some string music written by a classical master and a song from a Broadway hit. If she stops for water during the run, she might see a mime, a juggler or some fellow ballerinas dancing. Eilerts is running in the first Ballet Wichita 5K Art Run. And in addition to the broad range of entertainment provided by local artists that will appear at designated locations along the route, Eilerts will help create artwork Saturday. At the end of the run that starts near Century II, travels along the Arkansas River and around Exploration Place, Eilerts and other runners will help paint a picture with their feet. “We’re tying in the arts into a complete fitness event,” said Clark Ensz, the event’s race director. “This is a new idea for Wichita.” The event will showcase the arts in Wichita and raise money for Ballet Wichita, a nonprofit organization whose mission is to enhance the art of dance through performance and education. Participants can either run or walk.

What: Inaugural event with run, live entertainment and community art project Where: A. Price Woodard Park, 401 W. Douglas (see course map inside) When: 8 a.m. Saturday Cost: $30 today at GoRun Wichita’s east location, 2350 N. Greenwich, and west location, 2556 N. Maize Road, or online at; $35 online until 7 a.m. Monday or at both GoRun locations throughout the day; $35 Tuesday through Thursday at both GoRun locations; $35 Friday at the east GoRun location only; $45 Saturday at the event.

She accepted this challenge with enthusiasm.” Kice will oversee the execution of the Footprint Project at the end of the run in the amphitheater at A. Price Woodard Park, 401 W.

Reuben Saunders, who owns Artworks, said that Kice is well-prepared to do a project like the Footprint Project. “She does it on stage with music blasting and thousands of people watching her,” he said of some of the other performance pieces she’s created.

She’s done several real-time paintings for cultural events, but never anything like this. She’ll be directing people to walk and paint according a set pattern. “It’s the first time I’ve gotten to work on a project that is collaborative on such a large scale conceptually,” she said. “In this case, we’re involving an entire community. The concept, as well as the execution of the concept, is being looked at from a community perspective rather than sitting in a studio alone and thinking about what I want to share.” Contributing: Lori O’Toole Buselt

Dancers get a chance to learn, shine


From Page 1CC

BY ALICE MANNETTE Eagle correspondent


allet Wichita has entertained Kansans for more than four decades. The company’s mission is simple: to advance the art of dance through performance and education. By allowing more than 95 dancers ages 8 to 60 an opportunity to perform, Ballet Wichita provides them a chance to learn and shine. The company’s artistic director, Jill Landrith, has choreographed dozens of ballets for almost 15 years. In 1997, she became artistic director of the company her mother, June Landrith, founded in 1974 as Metropolitan Ballet of Wichita. In 2006, the company’s name was changed to Ballet Wichita. “I was crawling around backstage,” Landrith joked. “We’re looking at a lifetime of memories.” Ballet Wichita provides a family-based atmosphere where dancers perform year after year, as well as a revolving door that leads to college and professional careers. Because the company does not have a school attached to it, dancers from all area companies and colleges are welcome to participate. “It’s given me a lot of opportunity to meet a lot of people,” said Heather Eilerts, a Ballet Wichita dancer and Wichita State University ballet student. “All of us girls in the company are like sisters.” Dancer Sam Corridoni, 18, will head to Jackson, Miss., this fall and dance professionally for Ballet Magnificat, a Christian dance company. Corridoni began dancing at 14. “I love dancing,” Corridoni said. “It’s all about the moving and the shapes I’ve created. It’s the way my mind works.” Corridoni just closed the free Ballet Wichita production of “Peter and the Wolf.” Corridoni played Peter, and Eilerts performed as the wolf. “She (Landrith) has taught me so much,” Corridoni said. “She is the one who has made

In addition to continuing on with the company’s annual “Nutcracker” ballet and summer program, Landrith hopes to explore new venues for a spring show and beef up the

touring component. She also wants to offer more master classes. By providing more classes and more performance outlets, Ballet Wichita will give their dancers more experience and exposure. The company also will bring ballet to rural Kansas. The company estimates that almost 12,000 people watched at least one performance by Ballet Wichita last year, but Landrith and others hope that more people will

develop an appreciation for ballet. “In Germany, people go to the ballet like they watch TV,” said Landrith, who spent time abroad dancing for Aachen Ballet of Germany. “I’d like people to get more into that habit here.”

At the Exploration Place water station, for instance, Stormtroopers from the museum’s current “Star Wars” exhibit will greet runners, Chamberlin said. Actors and visual artists also are expected to be stationed along the race route. Jazz pianist John Salem and others will perform at the post-race party, where participants can munch on “everything from breakfast to pizza,” Chamberlin said. Food will be complimentary for runners, she said. In future years, organizers would like to expand to have vendors selling food to the crowd. In addition to feeling good about getting some exercise, organizers hope participants come away feeling good about the city’s arts groups. “It’s charming to be around people creating art,” Chamberlin said.

Ensz, who has participated in more than 30 marathons and designed running courses for more than three decades, also is a former ballet dancer. He’s danced in Ballet Wichita productions of “Swan Lake,” “Sleeping Beauty,” “Romeo and Juliet” and several of their annual holiday productions of “The Nutcracker.” By combining his love for dance and his talent for organizing runs, Ensz and fellow runner Mark Chamberlin came up with a 5K run in downtown Wichita to help raise money for Ballet Wichita and help promote other artists and arts organizations. “This is a unique opportunity,” Chamberlin said. “There is a close relationship between runners and dancers.” Eilerts, 20, a ballet student at Wichita State University and a dancer with Ballet Wichita, sees the close relationship. She is not only excited to run, but to hear and see the performers along the way and participate in the artwork at the end. “I’m excited about the art we’re going to do with our feet,” Eilerts said. Like many of the other runners, she plans to step onto the paint color that artist Rachel Kice designates and walk across a prepared vinyl surface. She then will clean her running shoes and enjoy food and more entertainment provided by local artists at the end of the 3.1-mile run. Ballet Wichita will use the money generated by this event to help offset expenses for the company’s “Nutcracker” performance and free summer performances.

summer fundraiser. A committee of 11 people and 50 to 60 volunteers on race day will help carry out the event. Funding for the event has come from cash sponsors and from the registration fees. Barbara Chamberlin, the company’s executive director, said she anticipates around 500 participants and hopes to bring in around $20,000 in net profit for Ballet Wichita. With this being the event’s first year, she believes the organization can significantly grow the revenue stream in the future. “It’s a very diverse crowd that loves to run,” Barbara Chamberlin, Mark Chamberlin’s wife, said. “It’s a way of allowing us to introduce our programs to a new audience.” She also said that they hope to generate more interest in the arts and Ballet Wichita through this running event. “The big upswing in people participating in races, especially 5Ks, are young professionals,” she said. “That’s the audiences that all of the arts organizations really need to cultivate. This event was attractive to us for that reason.” Barbara Chamberlin also said that organizers “reached out to as many local arts groups as possible because we wanted everyone to be able to promote what they’re doing. Runners will be enveloped by art and sounds along the way.” Mark Chamberlin, who sits on the board of directors for Run Wichita as its marketing chairman, said that Wichita has such a wonderful arts community, and it is sometimes taken for granted. “I hope it gets people excited about the arts community in Wichita,” Mark Chamberlin said. “This is a way to increase exposure and funding.”

MIAMI — At this point a year ago, LeBron James and Dwyane Wade were using words like urgency and desperation. And that’s exactly what the Miami Heat expect the Oklahoma City Thunder to bring into Game 3 of this year’s NBA Finals. So far, this championship series has followed the same script as a year ago, with the home team winning the opening matchup, then falling in Game 2 to lose the homecourt edge. Miami took the sting of that into Dallas last year and used it as fuel to win

Par for the course Olympic Club keeps golfers scrambling BY JEFF SHAIN Orlando Sentinel


AN FRANCISCO — As Saturday's U.S. Open adventures took shape, there seemed little question who would be declared the winner: The Olympic Club. Forgiving enough under fast and fiery conditions to give up nearly a dozen scores in the 60s, the crafty hillside layout still had enough bite to take a chunk out of the leaders' backsides — especially Tiger Woods' — and tighten the leaderboard for a free-for-all Sunday sprint. With snares waiting at every turn, of course. “If it's really firm, you won't see a score under par,” said Ernie Els, whose 2-under-par 68 left him as part of an 11-man chase pack within four shots of leader co-leaders Graeme McDowell and Jim Furyk. “If you get it into the red numbers, I think you'll win the tournament somehow,” Els continued. “I know it's saying a lot (when you're) 2-over, but red numbers will win.” McDowell, the Open champion

ASK SPORTS I hear Garrett Stutz is getting some mentions in NBA Draft circles. Who is the last Shocker to get drafted? It’s probably not who you might initially guess. While Xavier McDaniel was the Shockers’ last signature star to get drafted — he was the No. 4 overall pick of the 1985 draft by the then Seattle Supersonics — the X-Man was not Wichita State’s last draftee. The Los Angeles Clippers selected Henry Carr two years later with the first pick in the seventh round. The younger brother of WSU’s Antoine Carr, who was playing for the Atlanta Hawks at the time, was drafted 139th overall. The NBA started reducing the number of rounds in the draft shortly thereafter, eventually cutting it to two. Henry Carr never played in the NBA and neither did any of his fellow seventh-round draftees that year. Maurice Evans, who scored more than 1,000 points in a Shocker uniform before transferring to Texas, just wrapped up his ninth NBA season. The current Washington Wizard was undrafted when he came out after his junior year at Texas in 2001. He played 10 games with the Timberwolves in 2001-02 before falling out of the league for two years and then returning in 2004. Stutz is unlikely to break the Shockers’ draft streak, although he may be invited to NBA camps and get signed as a free agent. had Stutz ranked No. 83 in its list of prospects while had him at No. 91.

NEW YORK — If you miss any of your favorite events during the upcoming Summer Olympics in London, don’t blame NBC. Every sport, every single competition will be streamed live online or telecast by NBC and its affiliated cable networks in the U.S. this summer — starting with the Great Britain vs. New Zealand women’s soccer game on July 25, two days before the opening ceremony. It will be the most visible change for NBC in its first Olympics coverage since 1992 not run by veteran television executive Dick Ebersol. Ebersol, executive producer of eight winter and summer Olympic telecasts for NBC, quit as head of NBC Sports in May 2011. He will still be in London working for NBC as a consultant. On television and online, NBC will offer 5,535 hours of Olympics coverage. The NBC broadcast network itself will have 272 hours, including the flagship prime-time telecast that will amount to a "greatest hits" of each day’s competition. Ebersol’s successor as NBC Sports Group chairman, Mark Lazarus, ordered the live streaming during his first Olympics planning meeting after taking the new job. "I said, ’This is what I believe. Convince me that we should not be doing it,’" Lazarus recalled. "Nobody convinced me." NBC offered streams of several events from the 2008 Beijing Games, but would not present any of the showcase competitions that it was taping for later broadcast in prime time. The concern was that fans who saw the events live online wouldn’t bother watching NBC that night, depressing ratings for the broadcast that mattered most. In Beijing, however, some marquee events such as swimming were held in the morning in China so they could be televised live in prime time in the United States. In London, the time difference won’t allow for that option. Lazarus believes that many people who watch an event online will be interested in seeing how NBC handles it later. Fans watching live

If you miss any of your favorite events during the upcoming Summer Olympics in London, don’t blame NBC. Every single competition will be streamed live online or telecast by NBC and its affiliated cable networks in the U.S. this summer. streams are also expected to use social media, building anticipation for the broadcast. Any people who don’t want to watch on NBC what they’ve seen online will be more than offset by extra viewers drawn in by the excitement, Lazarus said. Fans who want to see the streams on will have to verify that they are paying cable or satellite subscribers. NBC says that’s necessary to protect these businesses since they pay a premium to air the NBC cable stations because of the Olympics. While most live streams will be archived, reruns of high-profile events that are going to be shown on the network will not be available until after the West Coast broadcast. There will be times that NBC’s Olympics website is showing as many as 40 separate competitions at the same time, said Gary Zenkel, president of NBC Olympics. The decision could neutralize what has always been a major criticism of NBC — that showing some events only on a tape-delay basis makes them feel stale, particularly in an era of instant communication. It might keep viewers from fleeing NBC, since some frustrated fans had sought out live telecasts from other television or Internet sources, said Andrew Billings, a sports media professor at the Univer-

sity of Alabama and author of "Olympic Media: Inside the Biggest Show on Television." "They realize it has to go in this direction," Billings said." The time difference — it will be 1 a.m. in London when NBC’s prime-time broadcast begins on the East Coast, 4 a.m. for the West Coast show — means no events will be offered live on the telecast most people watch. Ebersol might no longer be in the control room, but NBC will keep his template. Under his direction, the prime-time broadcast began concentrating on four major competitions: swimming, diving, gymnastics and track and field. Later, beach volleyball was added. Those sports accounted for 93 percent of the prime-time coverage in Beijing, Billings said. The idea is they are the best for the bite-sized competition and personal stories that attract female viewers. If the audience is dominated by male sports fans, as opposed to families, then it’s a losing proposition for NBC. "We’ll try to have a little more variety," said Jim Bell, executive producer of the Olympics telecasts, "but for the most part there are some tried and true sports that we know people love to watch." Bell’s experience producing four hours of live television each day at the "Today" show was key to his selection re-

placing Ebersol in the control room, Lazarus said. Bell also has an Olympics pedigree: His first NBC job out of college was pushing the wheelchair of a temporarily disabled NBC executive around Barcelona for meetings two years before the 1992 Olympics there. There will be several changes on NBC’s cable menu. For the network itself, Ryan Seacrest and John McEnroe are being added to the mix to contribute feature stories. Since its acquisition by Comcast Corp., NBC Universal has renamed the Versus cable channel the NBC Sports Network, and it will take much of the Olympics programming that in recent games has been seen on USA. A successful entertainment network, USA will stick with entertainment. The NBC Sports Network will average 14 hours a day of coverage, focusing on team sports like the U.S. men’s basketball team’s pursuit of gold. CNBC, as it has in the past, will air boxing when the financial markets are closed. Bravo will telecast tennis. MSNBC is turning its daytime hours over to the Olympics, airing 20 sports from badminton to wrestling. The Spanish-language Telemundo, heavy on soccer and boxing in past games, will offer more hours of Olympics coverage and show a greater variety of sports.

Four top U.S. cyclists – all former teammates of Lance Armstrong – removed their names from consideration for spots on the Olympic team before its announcement this week. Levi Leipheimer, George Hincapie, Christian Vande Velde and David Zabriskie asked that they be taken out of the running for places on the road cycling team for the Summer Games, USA Cycling announced in a brief statement Saturday. “USA Cycling will not speculate on the reasoning behind their requests and will not have further comment,” the statement said. “Any questions related to their decision should be directed to the individual athletes.” The national governing body for cycling announced Friday the five riders who will compete in London: Taylor Phinney, Tejay van Garderen, Chris Horner, Timmy Duggan and Tyler Farrar. Leipheimer is currently Kellis Robinett, Kansas State blogs.kansas. com/kstated

Summer is time to refine games


ummer is the time for basketball players to admit their weaknesses and try to fix them. Egos are checked and everybody goes to school. “None of us are perfect,” Creighton forward Doug McDermott said. The average observer might miss Jarmar Gulley’s inability to drive to his left. Coaches quickly highlighted that fact on their Missouri State scouting reports and Gulley, a junior-college transfer, found it more difficult to score late in the season. MSU coach Paul Lusk told Gulley, a 6-foot-4 swingman, not bother driving right during pickup games this summer. Lusk wants Gulley, who averaged 10.4 points, to work on outside shooting. “He’s a dominant right-handed kid, and we’ve really worked on his left hand,” Lusk said. “He’s most successful when he is getting paint touches. But he’s not that far away from being a consistent shooter. It’s reps. It’s footwork. It’s shot preparation.” Gulley isn’t alone. All over the Missouri Valley Conference, key returners are working to gain an edge. At Wichita State, forward Carl Hall is shooting 500 or so jumpers a day. He is WSU’s top returning big man and would like to diversity his offense. Hall, a senior, averaged 8.4 points and made 57.2 percent of his shots. He rarely scored outside the lane. While he isn’t going to turn into J.T. Durley, any additional scoring from Hall is important.


“Jump shot, free throws, post moves,” he said. “I’m really working on my offensive game. I’m seeing pretty good results. It’s a long road.” McDermott is tuning a game that made him an AllAmerican as a sophomore. He worked out against players such as Robbie Hummel, Marquis Teague and others preparing for pro ball at a camp in Indianapolis. Later this summer, he expects to attend two more high-profile camps. “It’s huge to go against guys that are similar to me in size,” he said. “Those are the best of the best. I know I’ve got a long way to go.” McDermott is a deadly three-point shooter with good post moves. He is working on his mid-range game, hoping to foil double teams with better drives and short jumpers. He is also working on defense, an area that bit the Bluejays last season. “We need him to be one of our leaders defensively, if we’re going to move our program forward,” Bluejays coach Greg McDermott said. “It’s going to be important

that Doug buys into that.” Not normal in Normal — New Illinois State men’s basketball coach Dan Muller wasted no time drawing a contrast between himself and predecessor Tim Jankovich. Jankovich, much to the displeasure of Redbirds fans, declined to schedule tough games. The Redbirds ranked seventh or lower in the MVC in schedule strength the past four seasons, including ninth in 2010 and last in 2011. Muller charted a different course since his hiring in May. The Redbirds are playing at Louisville, with no return, this season. He started a home-and-home series with Dayton. Those are the type of games he wants, regardless of where he is coaching. “There was a conscious effort to use my scheduling philosophy, and it just so happened that that meant beefing it up,” he said. “I know that people in the community … were a little frustrated with the scheduling of the past, but that doesn’t have anything to do with me. I wanted to come in and to help the program get to where I want it to get to. I think we have the ability to play a really good schedule most years, depending on your team.” New look at Cessna — Crews are working on two projects at Cessna Stadium. The football field is being reseeded with Bermuda grass. “We’re starting over with

our grass,” associate athletic director Brad Pittman said. “We just didn’t have the quality of grass we wanted.” Pittman said the grass should be ready for high school football. Kapaun Mount Carmel plays homes games at Cessna Stadium. Drainage problems forced WSU to tear out the retaining wall behind the south end zone (opposite the scoreboard). It will be replaced with a three-tiered setup that should help the drainage from the parking lot and give fans a place to walk and sit during events. “It should look better and be a little more user-friendly,” Pittman said. Worth noting — WSU golfer Gretchen Huhnerkoch won the Minnesota State Publinx Match Play Championship in Golden Valley, Minn. She defeated former Drake golfer Olivia Lansing 4 and 3 in the final.… Former Illinois State guard Nic Moore will transfer to SMU, joining former Redbirds coach Tim Jankovich, according to’s Jeff Goodman. Moore averaged 10 points and 3.8 assists as a freshman.… WSU’s men’s tennis team finished the season ranked No. 7 in the Intercollegiate Tennis Association’s Central Region.

Sprint Cup blisters Michigan track Associated Press

The last time anyone was this fast in qualifying in NASCAR’s top series, Richard Petty was still driving. He’s an owner now, but when Marcos Ambrose won the Sprint Cup pole at Michigan International Speedway on Saturday for Richard Petty Motorsports, the Hall of Famer was on hand to put the accomplishment in perspective. Ambrose posted a speed of 203.241 mph, the first time since 1987 the 200 mph mark was broken during Sprint Cup qualifying. “I can’t hardly remember that far back,” Petty said. “To be able to do it on a flatter race track, not Daytona or Talladega, that is unheard of.” Ambrose made his first Sprint Cup pole a memorable one on a day 19 drivers surpassed 200 mph on the newly paved surface at MIS. Speeds have been soaring since drivers began testing sessions, and NASCAR decided to alter the left-side tires for the race today, but that change didn’t affect qualifying. The last pole winner to break 200 mph in this series was Bill Elliott, a quartercentury ago at Talladega.

In fact, 40 drivers broke the mark, set in 2005. Petty won a pole at MIS in 1972 – at 157.607 mph. “When they redid the track and came up here testing and said they were running over 200 mph it was blowing my mind,” Petty said. “I think the last time we even flirted with that was when they redid Atlanta and we ran 198 or 199 mph. We knew it was going to be quick but I think it was a whole lot quicker than what we thought and definitely quicker than what Goodyear was thinking.” Goodyear changed its tire recommendation Friday night, saying the high speeds caused increased left-side tire

temperatures. Drivers were routinely exceeding 200 mph in practice, with Greg Biffle topping out with a lap of over 204 on Friday. Nobody is sure what to expect for the 400-mile race. Drivers were allowed an extra practice session Saturday night after the tire switch was announced. “We have such a good racecar and team that I feel we can overcome the tire change and I think it is going to make the cars that aren’t handling well handle terribly and the cars handling well a little slower,” Ambrose said. Hunter-Reay wins in Milwaukee — Ryan HunterReay found his way back to victory lane at the Milwaukee Mile, holding off Tony Kanaan on Saturday. It was the sixth career victory and first this season for Hunter-Reay, who brought home a victory for the man

who brought the historic but financially troubled Milwaukee track back to IndyCar – car owner Michael Andretti, who served as the race promoter. It wasn’t the first triumph at Milwaukee for HunterReay, who won the 2004 race at the track in the now-defunct Champ Car Series. Kanaan was second, followed by James Hinchcliffe, Oriol Servia and E.J. Viso. The start of the race was delayed about an hour and a half because of rain. Scott Dixon, who came into the race second in the points, had to serve a drive-through penalty for jumping a restart and finished 11th. He questioned the penalty afterward. Last year’s Milwaukee winner, Dario Franchitti, started from pole position and dominated the early stages of the race. But he fell back in the field and then spun out and hit the wall on lap 195.

Blizzard buries Wild to end regular season Eagle staff

The Green Bay Blizzard rolled to a 28-point halftime lead and buried the Wichita Wild 72-41 on Saturday night in Green Bay, Wis., on the final night of the IFL regular season. The Wild had already clinched a WILD 41 playoff spot, BLIZZARD 72 but missed out on the opportunity to host a firstround game. Wichita’s troubles started early in Saturday’s game, when the Blizzard’s Aaron Moore intercepted a pass and returned it for a touchdown just 1 minute, 18 seconds into the game. Green Bay built its lead to 24-0 before Callahan Bright scored Wichita’s first TD at 8:08 of the second period. The Blizzard returned the ensuing kickoff for a touchdown, and Wichita never got closer than 21 points the rest of the game. Wichita’s Marcus Jackson threw four touchdown passes, but also had two passes intercepted and returned for TDs.

Sporting KC wallops struggling Toronto BY TOD PALMER Kansas City Star

KANSAS CITY, Kan. — Facing the worst team in Major League Soccer, a Toronto FC squad that came into play with three points in its first 10 games and fired its coach last week, SportTORONTO 0 ing Kansas SPORTING 2 City cruised to a 2-0 victory Saturday at Livestrong Sporting Park. The first half was about as lopsided as a professional soccer game gets as Sporting KC built its two-goal lead. Part of it had to do with Toronto, 1-10-0, adjusting to a new formation — switching from a 4-3-3 under Aron Winter to a 4-4-2 under Paul Mariner, who moved from director of player development to coach. Still, most of it was as simple as Sporting KC (9-3-1) was the better team to the delight of the 20,488 in attendance, the club’s largest crowd this season. And it didn’t take long for Sporting KC to put Toronto under pressure. Seth Sinovic broke out on a counterattack in the third minute and found forward Teal Bunbury, who made a diagonal run to the left flank then schooled two Toronto defenders before whipping a dangerous cross low into the box. Sinovic had cut back inside to the near post but couldn’t get a clean strike on the ball and Toronto’s Doneil Henry cleaned up the mess in front of goalkeeper Milos Kocic. Midfielder Julio Cesar had a dangerous sliding opportunity early and nearly scored again in the 11th minute off a flicked-on, throw-in by Jacob Peterson, who made his first start for Sporting KC. Cesar’s volley for the far post sailed harmlessly out of bounds, but Peterson’s floating cross a minute later had Toronto’s defense beat again. This time, Bunbury and

Sapong collided at the back post as neither managed to get the ball on frame. Eventually, Sporting KC broke through in the 18th minute off another cross from Peterson, whose line-drive ball into the box skipped past Henry and made it to Sapong dead center in front of Toronto’s goal for an easy one-time putaway. Right back Chance Myers, who slipped the ball wide to Peterson, also received an assist — his fourth of the season.

James changing the narrative BY HOWARD BECK New York Times News Service

OKLAHOMA CITY — Reputations are not transformed by a single play, a single shot, a single victory. They evolve, sometimes reluctantly, with a steady accumulation of evidence. But a timely tweet can help nudge the process. Late Thursday night, an NBA-managed Twitter feed produced this breathless alert: “That was LeBron’s FIRST clutch (5 pt game, 5 mins left) basket on the road in the Finals in his entire career.” Never mind the impatient tone, which seemed to suggest, “It’s about time,” or that this was a fairly minor milestone for one of the most gifted players. The recognition is the thing, and James is chipping away at his reputation as a not-ready-forcrunch-time superstar in these NBA Fnals. With the Oklahoma City Thunder rallying late in Game 2, and less than two minutes to play, James drilled a 15-foot bank shot that extended the Miami Heat’s cushion to 96-91. That was the clutch shot — defined as a basket that comes with less than five minutes to play, and a margin of less than five points — that was highlighted in the Twitter post. James then harassed Kevin Durant into a missed 7-footer that could have tied the score, grabbed the rebound and calmly hit two free throws for a 100-96 victory that tied the finals at one game apiece and stole the Thunder’s home-

Of his 46 field-goal attempts, 30 have come within nine feet of the basket, including 21 within five feet, according to the statistics database. That’s more than Kevin Durant (14 shots within nine feet), more than Russell Westbrook (25) and more than his teammate Dwyane Wade (19). James also leads that group in free throws, going 19 for 21 from the line over two games. When the Heat lost Game 1 on Tuesday, blowing a 13-point lead along the way, they appeared to be suffering from the same mental wobbles that cost them the series against the Mavericks last June. They were steadier in Game 2, holding the lead Jeff Roberson/Associated Press from the first basket and holding off the Thunder’s fourthMiami forward LeBron quarter charge. James is playing in his third “I think this postseason, and NBA Finals. The Heat is everything we’ve been three wins from its second through, has shown that this league championship. group has a resourcefulness, a resolve, a resiliency,” coach court advantage. That James surely fouled Durant, and got Erik Spoelstra said.

Dallas Mavericks. So when someone asked James is not drifting, or about the Heat’s reputation settling, in these finals.

for meltdowns, James neither flinched nor shied from the issue, saying simply and convincingly, “I’m a confident guy.” A statement to skeptics? No, James said, his expression flat and unchanged. “We want to make enough plays to win basketball games, not to answer any questions about what people have to say about us.” Despite Oklahoma City’s superior depth and athleticism, the Heat have trailed in this series for just 12 minutes 16 seconds. They were the first to beat the Thunder on their home court in this postseason. Now the Heat head home for three games, and the nagging questions instead hover over the Thunder. The Thunder’s first-quarter struggles — an 11-point deficit in Game 1, a 17-point deficit in Game 2 — have sparked a debate over their starting lineup, and suggestions that they should downsize to match the Heat’s small lineup. The Thunder have thrived all season with an imposing defensive front of Serge Ibaka and Kendrick Perkins. But Miami is starting Chris Bosh, Shane Battier and James in the frontcourt, forcing the 6-foot-10 Ibaka to guard the perimeter, and not well. The result is that Battier has been repeatedly left open for threepointeers, hitting three in the first quarter of Game 1 and two more in the first quarter of Game 2. Battier has scored 17 points in each game, far exceeding his average for the first three playoff rounds (5.7 points).

Draft has options following Davis BY BRODERICK TURNER Los Angeles Times

LOS ANGELES — And with the second pick in the June 28th NBA draft, the Charlotte Bobcats select.… Oh, right, what about the first pick? Well, the consensus is that the New Orleans Hornets will take Kentucky big man Anthony Davis with the first overall pick. After that, the selections might get a little dicey — if only because Bobcats owner Michael Jordan has too many choices. One decision Jordan has to make is whether to trade the No. 2 pick to get more quality players lower in the draft of equal potential. It doesn’t help that Jordan hasn’t had a good history in the draft. After all, he selected high school center Kwame Brown with the first overall pick when he was a front-office executive for the Washington Wizards in the 2001 draft. That didn’t turn out too well. Lakers fans mostly remember Brown for fumbling passes in the post. Then Jordan selected Gonzaga’s Adam Morrison with the third overall pick in the 2006 draft for the Bobcats. One major problem for Jordan is that his team needs help at a lot of positions. According to several frontoffice executives with NBA teams, Jordan is deciding whether to take North Carolina small forward Harrison Barnes, Kansas power forward Thomas Robinson or Florida shooting guard Bradley Beal. “It’s a good draft, but there is just one star in this draft,” said an NBA executive, who was not authorized to speak publicly, referring to Davis. “But there are kids in this draft that could be in the league for 10 years and be nice players.” Davis is the cream of this draft. The 6-foot-10, 220-pound power forward led Kentucky to the NCAA championship by being a defensive force. One NBA scout compared Davis to Marcus Camby as a defender, saying that Davis has more upside as a scorer.

Teen keeps cool at Open BY TIM DAHLBERG Associated Press

SAN FRANCISCO — The kid came into the U.S. Open hoping to finish as low amateur and maybe even shake hands with his hero, Phil Mickelson. Modest goals, maybe, but Beau Hossler wasn’t even the best player in his state high school tournament a few weeks ago. So what would he think if someone told the 17-year-old he would be leading Tiger Woods and everyone else deep into the second round Friday? “I would probably tell them they’re nuts,” Hossler said. This was already shaping up as a great month for the Southern California teen. His braces are coming off in a week, he qualified for the Open for a second straight year, and he found out when he got here that all players get free dry cleaning. Oh, yeah, he got to play with Mickelson in a practice round and even took a few bucks off of Lefty. Still, the most adult thing he had done recently was ask his mother for a cup of coffee to help him study for his junior year finals. And suddenly he was standing on the second tee Friday at Olympic Club leading the Open. There it was, right there on the leaderboard. Hossler in big letters, just above Woods and Furyk. Sure, the tiny bag of clubs a family friend was carrying had the initials of his high school on it. He was playing big boy golf on a big boy course, and having fun doing it. “I was pretty excited about

Amateur Beau Hossler smiles as he walks up the 18th hole during the third round of the U.S. Open on Saturday at the Olympic Club in San Francisco. it, but then again I had another 40 holes at least to be playing in the tournament,” Hossler said. “You got a long way to go and you can’t get too wrapped up on where you’re at. You got to keep focused and try to go out there and salvage some pars on the first six holes, which is pretty difficult to do.” Too difficult for Hossler, it turned out. He hit a tree with one drive and would go on to play his last seven holes at 5

over as his name slipped down the leaderboard until a final-hole bogey left him tied for ninth place. He battled back Saturday with a even-par round that included four bogeys, each of which was immediately followed by a birdie. He begins today 3 over, four strokes behind the leader. Still low amateur. Pretty heady stuff for any player, though Hossler seems to take it all in stride.

“I just felt pretty comfortable out there,” he said Friday. “Pretty nervous starting the round. Just like any other event I’m normally pretty nervous on the first tee. But once I got through the middle of the round I found out I had the lead.” The lead, of course, can do things to even the most seasoned veterans. It wasn’t going to leave Hossler unscathed, though he did chip in on his next-to-last hole for a birdie that helped ease the sting of things. “He had to be nervous,” said caddie Bill Schellenberg, a family friend. “Yesterday it was like a qualifier. We had a fun day, loose as can be. He played well, laughed, just had nothing but fun. We were on the same path today and then he birdies No. 17 then we’re off to 18 and all of a sudden there’s cameras and stuff all over us. I don’t know about him, but I started to get nervous at that point.” Hossler’s story is a familiar one in golf. He would tag along with his father when he was little, playing a few holes at a time, until he finally got serious about the game around the age of eight. By the time he was 12 he was winning tournaments, and he qualified for the U.S. Amateur at the age of 14. After a growth spurt that helped his driving distance, he qualified for the Open at Congressional, missing the cut after rounds of 76-77. “He has the ability, I think, to stay calm in uncalm situations,” Hossler’s father said. “In Little League he was always calm, too. He doesn’t get too high or too low, he just rolls with the punches.”

Westwood climbs into contention BY MARK HERRMANN Newsday

SAN FRANCISCO — It had been easy to lump Lee Westwood in with the two other guys in his threesome the first two days. The difference was, he played well enough to hang around for the weekend, and he played well enough on Saturday to get into contention for his first major title. Luke Donald and Rory McIlroy, his mates in a group composed of the top three players in the world ranking, both failed to make the cut, which gave the whole group a bad name. Westwood hung in there and made five birdies on Saturday to shoot 3-under par 67 and finish 2 over. Of the U.S. Open, he said, “It has no respect for who you are or what your ranking is.” He turned the tables Saturday by not getting overwrought by the occasion or anything else. “I go out and play golf for a living on the best golf courses in the world in the biggest tournaments,” said the man who has seven top-three finishes in majors. “It’s not a bad way to pass time.”


Ben Margot/Associated Press

Lee Westwood tied for the lowest third-round score Saturday at the U.S. Open. His 67 moved him into a tie for fourth place. and going nowhere until he got to the 180-yard par 3 13th hole. He saw his ball roll in the cup for a hole-inone and leaped for joy. That brought him back within four of the lead. Ernie Els, who has won two U.S. Opens, but none since 1997, put himself back in the mix (2 over) with pitch-in eagle on the par 5 17th hole.

Chip shots — Phil Mickelson turned 42 on Saturday and was serenaded with “Happy Birthday” on No. 18, but it wasn’t the same lighthearted scene he experienced with a similar chorus at Bethpage 10 years ago.

Peterson was 4 won the Masters. over par through 12 holes Most jarring was the finish, where he stubbed a chip from greenside rough at No.18 that barely made it to the green and then took a sharp left turn away from the hole. Adding injury to insult, he accidentally whacked a photographer's camera as he left the green, shaking the hand in pain. “I'm fine,” was all he said when asked about the hand. Beau Hossler, the 17-year-old Californian who briefly stood alone in the lead on Friday, shot a third-round 70 to join a six-man group four off the pace that also included Webb Simpson (68) and Jason Dufner (70). Hossler carded four bogeys Saturday, but followed each with a birdie on the very next hole. “You really can't emphasize how key that is,” the teen said. “You lose one, you can really get on the bogey train if you're not careful. I managed to get some good ones back

and keep my momentum going.” Woods, Furyk and David Toms shared the lead at 1-under to begin the day, but learned very quickly after teeing off that Olympic had plenty of treachery in reserve. All three bogeyed the long par-4 opening hole, seemingly setting the tone. Even with a 3-wood, Woods watched his opening tee shot bounce into the rough and couldn't get his approach any closer than 40 yards short of the green. Furyk missed the green with his approach and chipped long; Toms also bogeyed one group ahead after a poor drive. And just like that, the red numbers completely vanished from Olympic's leaderboard. Toms, by the way, plummeted like a stone kicked down one of Olympic's steep hillsides. He bogeyed three of his first five holes, compounding it with a double bogey at No.6 on the way to a 76.

They were grand mal seizures, which Klauk described in a recently self-authored Sports Illustrated article: “In a grand mal the muscles suddenly tense – sometimes so forcefully that people moan or scream as the air is shot from their lungs – then contract and expand quickly and repeatedly, causing convulsions. These convulsions can be violent, and mine were. It was two weeks before I felt like myself again, with no memory loss, no sore jaw, no aching muscles.” Klauk’s doctors prescribed Trileptal, which eliminated the grand mal seizures for four years and enabled him to play well enough to earn his PGA Tour card in 2009. That

season, Klauk finished in the top 10 in three tournaments and earned more than $1.2 million. But Klauk’s battle with epilepsy eventually entered another phase. Late in 2010, while driving his wife, Shanna, and two children to a Christmas Eve service, he experienced an odd 30-second episode that was his first complex partial seizure. Klauk said that type is smaller than a grand mal, but occurs more frequently and is more difficult to control with medication. Klauk actually shut down his 2011 golf season after eight mostly disappointing tournaments to undergo rotator cuff surgery and repair an ailing shoulder. It also allowed him to begin earnestly

working with doctors to try to determine the part of the brain that was triggering his seizures. To do this, Klauk subjected himself to multiple series of Epilepsy Monitoring Unit (EMU) tests at the Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville, Fla., and Emory University Hospital in Atlanta. On April 20, Klauk underwent an initial surgery in which electrodes were inserted into his brain to find the problem areas. The damaged tissue will be removed during his follow-up surgery in August. “If they do find that exact spot and can remove it, your chances of being seizure-free are about 70-80 percent,” Klauk said. “It’s tough to go through and it’s hard on your family, because the doctors have to induce seizures to pinpoint the area.

“But at my age, you kind of have to take the chance and do it.” For Klauk, it’s a battle to regain independence. He hasn’t driven a car since January 2011 because of the seizures, instead maneuvering through the golf course community in which he lives in a golf cart. The positive tradeoff to time away from the tour, he said, has been spending it with his son, Jackson, 7, and 3-year-old daughter Bridget. But Klauk is motivated to get back to building on what was a long-awaited and promising rookie season on the PGA Tour. Before he got there, the Wichita Open provided him with some key building blocks – a secondplace finish in 2002, his first Nationwide title a year later and another top-10 finish in

2007. During those trips to Wichita, Klauk made a favorable impression. “In my years of doing this, I’ve gotten to know a lot of great people, and Jeff Klauk is one of the classiest guys I’ve ever met,” Wichita Open tournament director Roy Turner said. “He’s always been interested in what we’re doing here. He’s been a great champion and a great representative for the other professional golfers. “As I learn more about epilepsy, I wouldn’t want anyone to have to deal with it, and Jeff certainly doesn’t deserve what he’s gone through. By the end of Friday, hopefully everyone who comes to the tournament will gain something by learning about what he and many others are dealing with.”



White gets back on the field ■

The Royals great is coaching for the T-Bones this season.

BY JEFFREY LUTZ The Wichita Eagle

Frank White was in Wichita when his relationship with the Kansas City Royals began to deteriorate for the second time. After ending his playing career on bad terms in 1990, White found his way back into the organization in 1997, and in 2004 began his first of three seasons managing the Royals’ Double-A affiliate, the Wichita Wranglers. White was passed over when the Royals selected Buddy Bell as manager in 2005 without much of a search and again when they hired Trey Hillman in 2008. A new regime led by general manager Dayton Moore declined to hire White, who in Wichita managed many of the prospects that were arriving in KC during Hillman’s first season. White is back in Wichita this weekend as first-base coach of the Kansas City T-Bones of the American Association. He’s coming off a second bitter ending with the Royals, as he was removed from the team’s television broadcast crew after last season. "I don’t think they ever saw me as managing the team in Kansas City," White said from Lawrence-Dumont Stadium. "I really thought that they liked the idea of me being here with the guys in Double-A, guys that have the opportunity to get called to the big leagues. "I was able to share my experience with those guys, give them an idea of what it’s like to walk into the clubhouse for the first time. But I don’t think it was the general plan for me to manage (the Royals), even though that’s really what I wanted to do." The Royals found a role for White, even though it wasn’t

the one he wanted. He began providing color commentary, keeping his voice in Wichita through Fox Sports Kansas City even though the Wranglers left Wichita in 2008. White was let go after four seasons in that position. The Royals have never said why they ousted White. The belief is that his firing resulted from his being too critical of Royals players. "If I was a negative person, it probably would have resonated when I was managing the best players in the organization in ’06 when I was here," White said. "But that team and those players got better and we had a great year. I just think that sometimes personalities get involved in situations where the calmer head doesn’t prevail." According to the Kansas City Star, overtures were made by both sides that suggested a possible reconciliation. When it didn’t happen immediately, feelings grew more harsh and now it appears one may never occur. The 61-year-old White, a five-time All-Star and eighttime Gold Glove winner who helped lead the Royals to the 1985 World Series championship and later saw the team retire his No. 20, wouldn’t be the first icon to cut ties with the team with which he reached that status — Ozzie Smith wasn’t in-

volved with the St. Louis Cardinals for more than a decade because of a disagreement with former manager Tony LaRussa. While White can’t currently envision a scenario that would allow him to find common ground with the Royals again, he’s not eliminating it as a possibility. "Maybe the smart thing to say is ‘Never say never. Never say always.’ The most important thing is being right at that particular time," White said. "You get tired. I go along with things for a while even though they’re not quite how they should be, but at some point, when I quit I quit. "I don’t see it. I just want to enjoy what I’m doing. I want to be stress-free, enjoy what I’m doing with the guys and get more involved with the community in Kansas City, and let Royals baseball take care of itself." White was replaced in the TV booth by Rex Hudler, who has been met with mostly negative reactions from Royals fans. Hudler had no previous ties to the Royals and most recently broadcast for the Los Angeles Angels. White is more sympathetic to his replacement, though. "It’s not his fault," White said. "He was brought into a tough situation. I think that if I was as bad on the broadcast I was presented, then he

built the team for a reason. He had a heck of a year last year, his numbers were silly. Just sticking with a guy and having confidence in him. He knew that we had confidence in him and his ability." The night after an 0-for-3 performance that dropped his average to .167 on May 21, Ziegler wasn’t in the starting lineup. The following game he began an 18-game hitting streak, during which he had 30 hits in 79 at-bats for a .380 average. The streak improved Ziegler’s average to .330, and though he hasn’t quite maintained that, Ziegler is far from fading. His home run Saturday was his second in two games, and the RBI it produced gave him six in six games. The solo blast put the Wingnuts ahead 4-2 in the third inning and came after he scored on a close play at the plate that led to the ejections of T-Bones catcher Trevor Coleman and pitcher Devin Anderson in the second. Kansas City pitcher Steve Kent was ejected during Ziegler’s at-bat in the eighth after complaining about the strike zone, but the surrounding drama did little to slow down

Ziegler, who proceeded to draw his third walk. "It’s one of those streaks you have in baseball," Ziegler said. "You can’t explain it. It doesn’t matter — you’re seeing (the ball) well and coming to the ballpark feeling well. That’s why you love the game. That’s also why you hate the game, too, I think. It’s a love-hate relationship." Saturday’s three walks gave Ziegler 12 for the year, contributing to his .377 on-base percentage. The free passes aren’t always enjoyable for a player as locked in as Ziegler, but they’re a product of those circumstances and his ability to detect pitches that are traveling out of the strike zone. The pitches in the strike zone are often traveling great distances. Friday’s homer was estimated at 450 feet and Saturday’s went just under the video board beyond the wall in left-center field. Ziegler fell behind 0-2 in the count in his second at-bat but caught up to the fastball Dan Kickham tried to sneak by him. Kansas City’s pitchers were more careful with him in Ziegler’s later plate appearances. "That’s what we talk about all the time in our pitchers’ meetings, trying to trick somebody," Hooper said. "You try to trick him and he’s pretty much strong enough to where I’m pretty sure you don’t want

to throw him that fastball." Ziegler’s success has mirrored that of the Wingnuts, who improved to 20-8 with Saturday’s win. Hitting behind veterans John Rodriguez and Juan Richardson, Ziegler often hits with runners on base, and his power provides a solid bridge to the bottom half of the lineup. Saturday, the Wingnuts drew 12 walks and struck out once, the embodiment of their philosophy to wear down pitchers by elevating their pitch counts. Every Wichita starter scored a run or drove in one.

probably would have been welcomed with open arms. But people know me. They got a chance to listen to me for four years, and with him coming in — I don’t wish that on anybody. He didn’t change. I think he’s the same guy, and I think he would have brought the same color to the game whether I was there or not." White is writing a book scheduled for release in October that he said will fully explain his side of the drama with the Royals. He was ready to work with AfricanAmerican kids in Kansas City, but he had a connection to the T-Bones and opted to offer his services to young players who can benefit from his experience. While White was in the middle of his problems with the Royals last year, he said he heard frequent criticism from members of the organization. As it grew more intense, White said he never saw the need for self-examination because he remained virtually unchanged through it all. "I know me and I know the kind of person my dad raised me to be," White said. "I always wanted to be good at what I did, but I always wanted to people to like me for being good at what I did. I always took the humble side, and I think people like that about me."

Royals pitcher Tim Collins dives after a bunt single by the Cardinals' Rafael Furcal in seventh inning of Saturday's game in St. Louis.


From Page 1D “It would have been nice to steal this one,” right fielder Jeff Francoeur said, “but baseball is funny. We kind stole a couple this week at home (in sweeping Milwaukee). Now, we’ve had one stolen back here.” The game unfolded in three acts: The Cardinals building a 6-1 lead through two innings against Bruce Chen. The Royals roaring back with single runs in the fourth, fifth and sixth innings before grabbing a 7-6 lead in the seventh. And the Cardinals’ three-run counterpunch in their seventh. St. Louis produced its winning rally against Tim Collins and Greg Holland, two of the top arms in a Royals’ bullpen that, prior to the seventh, had compiled a 1.94 ERA since May 20. “When you get those guys in the game,” third baseman Mike Moustakas said, “they’re usually lights out. It happens. They can’t go out every time and just dominate like they have been doing. That’s part of the game, but we know they’ll bounce back (today).” Collins brought a 2.03 ERA into the game after not allowing a run in his 15 previous outings. He started the inning by walking Daniel Descalso before failing to make a diving catch on a popped sacrifice bunt by Rafael Furcal. “I wasn’t going to let it fall,” Collins said. “It hit my glove. I didn’t squeeze tight enough or (my glove is) too small. I don’t know. It was in there to catch it.” The result was a single

that moved Descalso to second. After Collins retired Carlos Beltran on a foul pop, the Royals turned to Holland, who had permitted one run in 15 2⁄3 innings since returning from the disabled list. “Holly wasn’t sharp,” manager Ned Yost said, “but it started with Collins with a four-pitch walk to Descalso. Then Holly struggled with his command, and it just wasn’t good for us.” Matt Holliday greeted Holland with a gametying single. A walk to Allen Craig loaded the bases, but Holland was poised to escape with the tie after striking out David Freese. Instead, Yadier Molina rammed a grounder up the middle for a two-run single. “We’ve had plenty of comebacks,” St. Louis manager Mike Matheny said, “but not a lot of comeback wins.” Matheny didn’t see it from the dugout; he was ejected in top of the first inning for arguing when the umpires reversed a triple play. Holliday and Molina tormented the Royals throughout the game. Both got the Cardinals rolling by hitting tworun homers in the first inning against Chen. Holliday finished four for five with five RBIs, while Molina was two for three with four RBIs. St. Louis needed all it though after Moustakas, with four RBIs, helped the Royals erased a five-run hole against rookie Joe Kelly and the bullpen. It was a remarkable rally for a team that scored more than four runs just once in 13 previous games. The comeback also put the Royals in position to play to their strength – their bullpen. It just didn’t work out. The loss snapped the Royals’ fourgame streak of one-run victories.

manager Joe Girardi said. “To be honest, I was having a hard time remembering how we got our other three runs. It was so long ago.” Freddy Garcia (1-2) pitched two innings to get the win. Rafael Soriano earned his 12th save, but only after allowing consecutive one-out singles to Jesus Flores and Steve Lombardozzi. The game ended when Soriano got Harper to ground out, ending the rookie’s 0-for-7 day that included five strikeouts.

on Derek Jeter’s single to left. Jeter’s hit made the Yankees 1 for 15 with runners in scoring position, but Nix couldn’t score because he had to make sure the ball made it past the infield. After Curtis Granderson struck out, Teixeira got the Yankees up to 2 for 16 with the double off Brad Lidge (0-1). It was Teixeira’s only hit on a day that started – seemingly long ago – with strikeouts in the first, third and fifth innings. “Find a way to get it done, and that’s what our guys did,”

made the difference Saturday as the Yankees won their eighth straight game, beating the Nationals 5-3. New York outfielder Dewayne Wise, who cut down a runner at the plate in the eighth inning to keep the game tied, said it felt as if the game “was going to go 25 innings. I was looking at the bullpen thinking I may have to come in and throw an inning or two.” Jayson Nix opened the 14th with an infield single, then stole second and advanced to third

Brady reflects on loss of mentor, preps for 2012 Associated Press

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. — It’s been almost four months since Tom Brady lost the single biggest influence in his football life. Tom Martinez was his throwing coach. His mentor. His adviser. You name it. And then, while waiting on a kidney transplant, Martinez died on Feb. 21 from a heart attack during dialysis. It happened to be his 66th birthday. “I had a great level of comfort with Tom over the years,” Brady said. “He was always someone I could call on to rely on him. I know he’s watching down with every throw and I hear his voice in the back of my head after every throw. Throwing the football is about mechanics. There’s nothing special. It’s just a matter of doing it the right way. The better mechanically you are, the more accurate you’re going to be able to throw the football.” Martinez taught him that,

and Brady perfected it. Now, five months after he lost the Super Bowl 21-17 to the New York Giants in Indianapolis, Brady is pushing forward, aiming at 2012. On Tuesday and Wednesday of last week, he and the Patriots went through the motions at a Brady Gillette Stadium minicamp. “When you’re not accurate, there’s a reason for it. It’s not like, `Hey you’ve got to throw the ball more accurate.’ No, there’s a reason. What are you doing?” Brady asked. “I’m constantly evaluating every throw. I watch every practice. Every rep I take in practice, I have someone film and I watch it after practice. I just make sure I’m continuing to work on the right things because ultimately when you’re under pressure, your body is going to revert to what it

down of things we’ve talked about and things that I’ve learned, and I have a great understanding of mechanically what I need to be able to do. It’s just a matter of seeing it and being able to correct it. Hopefully, you can correct it between series sometimes,” Brady said. “You don’t always have the fortune to wait until Monday to figure things out. Sometimes you have to figure them out in the middle of the third quarter. That’s something where I have to rely on what he’s taught me over the years.” One thing Martinez always stressed – and Brady has done a good job of on his own – is to take care of his body. Brady had his minicamp weigh-in on Wednesday, and checked in at 228 pounds. “I feel really good,” Brady said. “I feel great. I’m right about where I always am, to tell you the truth. I’m right where coach wants me at. I think you really refine what you do over the course of years because you realize

knows. “Muscle memory is a very important thing for a quarterback. Hopefully, you train your muscles to react the way you need them to react when the pressure is on the most. That allows you to throw the ball with velocity and accuracy. The tougher the games get, the closer the coverages, the more accurate you need to be.” Brady threw for 5,235 yards and 39 touchdowns last season, using many of the mechanics Martinez taught him in California as the veteran quarterback was in high school, preparing for his collegiate career at Michigan. Martinez didn’t coach Brady exclusively, of course. In fact, he also mentored John Elway and JaMarcus Russell over the years, and he followed Bill Walsh and John Madden at the College of San Mateo before being forced to retire due to health concerns. “I have to rely on what he’s taught me over the years. I have a lot of stuff written

what works for you and what you need to do to be prepared for the football season. “I think there are things you do when you’re younger I haven’t necessarily done in a while because I don’t think it really correlates well to being a better football player. And ultimately, we’re trying to be the best football player we can be, not necessarily the best weight-lifter, or the best sprinter. “You need to be the best football player.” At times, Brady’s been that in the NFL. He is, after all, a three-time Super Bowl champion and two-time league MVP, a seven-time Pro Bowl selection and a two-time Super Bowl MVP. And a lot of that has to do with staying in game shape, which he said is easier now than it was when he came into the NFL in 2000. “A lot,” Brady said. “And every year it seems to be little different. So, I’m always looking for little ways to improve. Certainly, eat healthier, which is actually easier to do now

than it used to be when I was young. I eat pretty good.” As for the minicamp and the end of the offseason training activities, Brady said he and the team covered a lot of ground. This is a club coming off a 13-3 regular-season record and an AFC championship, of course. “It’s been a lot of fun, being back on the field, having a chance to work with a lot of the new guys,” Brady said. “Some of those guys we’ve worked with and there’s a lot of familiarity with. They’ve already done our offense, so it’s been good. We’ve had 12 practices.” The Patriots are now off until July 26, when they report to training camp. The key between then and now for Brady & Company? Do not treat the next five weeks as vacation. “We’re in full preparation mode. This is the point where things really start getting ramped up. There’s no breaks. We had our vacation,” he said.

Flint Hills on the fly One angler catches a variety of fish with a technique many people associate with trout. BY BRENT FRAZEE Kansas City Star

F Arda alba About as tall as a fifthgrader and as white as a polar bear, great egrets aren’t exactly hard to spot. Kansas’ largest egrets are pretty common in southcentral Kansas, often seen around a variety of streams and impoundments. The ponds at Chisholm Creek Park in Wichita usually offer very good looks at these striking birds as they wade the shallows looking for fish, snakes, frogs and other squiggly meals. The are also numerous egrets in some areas along the Arkansas River. About a century ago most kinds of white egrets were nearly shot into extinction so their white plumage could adorn women’s hats. Populations have bounced back nicely after federal protection.

LINT HILLS — Bill Hartman remembers the days when he was getting started in fly fishing and he became somewhat of a local novelty. "The landowners would get their families together and they’d come down to see the nutty professor out there in a belly boat, fly fishing on their ponds," said Hartman, who was an administrator at Emporia State University. "They had never seen anything like it and they were curious." Hartman still attracts attention when he fly fishes the ponds and lakes of the Flint Hills, but mostly for the size, variety and number of fish he and his clients catch. Landowners no longer view his fishing trips as a sideshow act. They know that when he launches his belly boat, the fish are in trouble. "When I started 25 years ago, it was mostly trial and error," said Hartman, who runs the Fly Fish Kansas Guide Service. "Everyone would fly fish for trout, but not a lot of fishermen would use flies to catch bass, crappies, bluegills and channel catfish. "Even now, I’ll have people who will call me about my guide service and ask, ‘Where do you fly fish for trout in the Flint Hills?’ I’ll tell them, ‘We don’t. But we’ll catch just about everything else that swims in Kansas.’ It’s just a great way to fish these big ponds and lakes in this part of the state. "I have about 15 private places where I have permission to fish and they’re all loaded with fish." Hartman was headed for one of those places on a gray, spring day. He rambled down a dusty back road until he got to a gate. Once he drove his truck through, he bounced through a pasture until he topped a hill and looked down on a gem of lake set in the beauty of the rolling landscape of the Flint Hills. "Isn’t this beautiful?" said Hartman, 62, who lives in Emporia. "The Flint Hills are a very pastoral setting. You can get out here in this beauty and it’s just you and the fish." With that, Hartman started getting ready for a day of fishing. He unloaded his inflatable boat, climbed into his waders, pulled on his wading boots, then strapped a pair of waders to his feet. He held his 4-weight fly rod with a small doll fly and a strike indicator attached to the line and headed out with two kicks of his fins.

Bill Hartman’s fly-fishing antics were something of a novelty in the Flint Hills when started 25 years ago. "The landowners would get their families together and they’d come down to see the nutty professor out there in a belly boat, fly fishing on their ponds.” Bill Hartman shows the fish he opted to keep after a successful day of fly-fishing early this year in the Flint Hills.

Basics of fly fishing the Flint Hills.

It didn’t take him long to find fish. After only a few casts with his fly rod, the orange indicator bounced slightly and Hartman set the hook. He watched as the fish bent the rod almost double as it surged for the cover of the bottom. The fish quickly gave up on that strategy and rocketed to the surface. But it wasn’t long before Hartman had the 2-pound bass to the boat. "One of the things I like about fly

fishing is that you get to feel the fight," Hartman said. "You give the fish a sporting chance. Even the small ones are fun to catch." Hartman started by catching a mix of crappies and bass. Then he ran into a school of big bluegills. One of the fish tugged so hard, he thought he had a big bass. But when he got it in, he found that it was a bright-colored bull bluegill.

Doing some rough measuring before releasing the fish, Hartman said, "That fish will go close to 12 inches. That’s a huge bluegill." Moments later, Hartman headed for a second pond. And there, he found much the same success as he had at the first one. Most were tossed back, but Hartman kept a few crappies, bluegills and bass for a fish fry. "The nice thing about flies is that they’re good imitations of what is in the water," Hartman said. Hartman started off in fishing as a catfisherman. But he said he got tired of sitting on a bucket, waiting for a bite. Today, he says, he’s not fishing if he doesn’t have a fly rod in his hands. "I tie some of my own flies, I buy others," he said. "I can fit just about everything I’ll be using that day in my pocket."

end of the seasons. Tymeson said commissioners will be asked to approve that deer management units 1, 12, 15, and 19 allow all hunters to use crossbows during the upcoming archery deer seasons, as part of an experimental program recently created by the Kansas legislature. Hunters ages 16-54 using a crossbow during the archery season in those units will be required to complete a crossbow survey card to assist with the program. The commission previously approved allowing those 15 and under and 55 and over to use crossbows during the archery season. A vote is expected on a proposal to expand the legal shooting hours for sandhill

cranes to allow hunting from sunrise to until sunset. Hours are currently one-half hour after sunrise to 2 p.m. Many sandhill crane hunters say most of the birds have already flown to feeding fields by a half-hour after sunrise. Opponents say the later time will help assure endangered whooping cranes aren’t mistaken for sandhills. Several years ago hunters shot two whoopers well before sunrise, which was then beginning of legal shooting hours. Thursday’s meeting will be 1:30-5 p.m and 7 p.m. until completion at Cabela’s, 10300 Cabela Drive, Kansas City. For information call 620-672-5911 or go to

Buying a house requires a lot of research.And most of the digging involves mortgage rates. The first step is figuring out which mortgage option would work best for you: Long term or short term? Fixed or adjustable? Historically, consumers are more acquainted with the 30-year fixed mortgages.They are easier to qualify for and require lower monthly payments. But short-term, adjustable-rate mortgages have always enticed buyers with low rates, despite the higher monthly payments that kick in after an introductory period. “They are very competitive,” says Keith Gumbunger, vice president of, a mortgage resource website. There’s a catch, though. They are unpredictable and can change. Most of these loans offer very lucrative introductory rates, but the rates get adjusted periodically.The changes are tied into indices such as London Interbank Offered Rate, or Libor. Fixed-rate mortgages, on the other hand, are a little more expensive over the life of the loan. But, they also are more reliable. With the economic and housing downturn, mortgage rates for both fixed and adjustable loans spiraled downhill. The longer-term fixed mortgages are offering rates that compete well with the short-term adjustable rate mortgages, which spread over 10, 15 and 20 years.There’s not much difference today between a 30-year fixed rate and a 20-year ARM, unlike in years past. And 10-year rates find only a few qualified buyers. But 15-year mortgages are still tempting and popular.“They are almost 0.75 percent below the 30-year [fixed rate mortgages],” Gumbunger says. According to the Mortgage Bankers Association, the 30-year, fixedterm rates were at 3.96 percent in the second week of May.The 15-year rates at the same period were at 3.26 percent, while the 5 year ARMs were at 2.80 percent – which means it's worth looking into the short-term mortgages if you can afford it. So, can you?

THE SHORT-TERM TARGET AUDIENCE “Homeowners refinancing usually are the target (for these loans),” Gumbunger said.“For some, it is possible to chop off years off their loans at the same (or perhaps even lower) month-

ly payments.” Shorter-term mortgages work best for trade-up buyers who are coming into the deal with a sizeable equity stake or down payment, Gumbunger says. These loans also work better for consumers who are now in the market buying homes that have lost some value, says Joel Dikit, senior mortgage consultant at Mason-McDuffie Mortgage in Pleasanton, Calif. First-time buyers who don’t plan on owning or living in their home for more than a decade also should consider the short-term ARMs, Dikit says, to take advantage of the low introductory payments.You might be able to lock into rates that are in the low 2 percents, if you shop around, he adds. “Ten years is a long time in the mortgage business,” Dikit says.“You could sell off the property by then or have it as a rental.”

QUALIFYING FOR A SHORT-TERM ARM In these tough times with stringent lending regulations, any loan or mortgage is a tough bet. To qualify for the ARMs, you have to meet about the same standards as for the long-term fixed rate loans.Among the required documentations are tax returns,W-2 forms, current pay stubs, driver’s license, social security card, bank statements, liquefiable assets and checking and savings account statements.The minimum credit score required for most conventional loans these days is 680, Dikit says. “Most short-term loans require borrowers to qualify at the higher or fully indexed rate on the ARM,” Dikit says.“So, if you have a note rate of 2 percent, then you would have to qualify at a 4 percent rate.”

THE DOWN PAYMENT Since most of these short-term mortgages are targeted at refinancing, equity positions tend to come in fairly deep, with 20- to 30-percent equity pretty common, Gumbunger says. “A minimum of 10 percent down is the standard these days everywhere,” he says. According to Dikit, anything less than a 3.5 percent down payment requires a mortgage insurance, which is yet another layer of required qualification.

The law of supply and demand is so basic to economics that even a kid running a lemonade stand gets the concept: More buyers vying for limited inventory pushes prices up. But today’s complicated housing market defies easy analysis. Case in point: Nationwide, the inventory of homes for sale fell by 22 percent in March from a year earlier, according to the National Association of Realtors. With the current pace of sales, current inventory is a six-month supply,“about the historical average,” observes Lawrence Yun, the NAR’s economist. With supply getting back to “normal,” does that mean the housing market has recovered? The short answer, according to experts:“sort of.” Here, a look at why buyers and sellers should consider supply in their strategy:

In the sweet spots where buyers are vying for a limited number of properties, sellers often set a low “teaser” listing prices, and then designate specific dates when they’ll accept offers, explain Brad Le, a Redfin agent in Silicon Valley. Usually, the offer selected is above list price and contains few or no contingencies. In places where demand hasn’t rebounded, sellers should select an agent who can give them details about the supply of their specific type of home, now as well as in the recent past and what the probable trend is likely to be, says Terry Swanson, broker-owner of Century 21 Results Realty in Atlanta. It could be that supplies have shrunk, at least temporarily, and sellers who’ve been waiting for an opportune moment to list could take advantage of the lull, he explains. Indeed, one of the wild cards impact the future supply in some areas is whether banks will drop significant inventories of foreclosed homes in the neighborhood. Foreclosures coming to market “are on of the variables that we must watch closely,” Swanson adds.

SUPPLY SHAPED LOCALLY The NAR figures show a nationwide inventory drop, but some areas are seeing steeper falls, and combined with a good local employment environment, those forces are pushing prices upward, notes Tim Ellis, an analyst for online brokerage Redfin. For instance, Ellis reports Redfin agents in California’s Bay Area, San Diego,Washington D.C. and other spots are seeing more than one buyer vying for a home in at least half their transactions this year, with the uptick fueled by a robust jobs picture. Yun adds that some areas hardest hit by the downturn, like Miami, are now invaded by investors, resulting in multiple offers that are pushing up prices from a very low bottom. Even in metro areas where statistics show prices are still slipping, like Chicago, there are neighborhoods with dwindling supplies, observes Randy Barcella, an appraiser in Orland Park, Ill. Neighborhoods where owners are struggling to afford their homes and many have put out for sale signs are still seeing prices drag down, but not in spots where supply is limited, Barcella adds.

MEASURE THE COMPETITION Yes, multiple offers are wonderful, but not for the disappointed buyers and their agents who present losing bids, says Ellis. “We’re studying buying strategies,” he adds.“One method is to hire an inspector before [submitting a purchase contract} and then if the buyer is comfortable, they can remove the inspection contingency.” Cash offers help, with buyers in markets like those in Arizona and Florida losing out to investors with deeper pockets, says Yun. Ordinary homebuyers can get some advantage by stressing how much they would love living in a particular home. “Nearly all of the offers I see have a letter attached, sometimes with pictures of the buyers,” Le shares. © CTW Features

These Pandas are Doomed

Voracious global appetite for silver could make this the World’s Most Endangered Coin. Will you save it in time? f you want to save these pandas, you ISilver don’t have much time. The legendary Panda coins are recognized as one of the most popular series of all time. Years ago, you could afford to wait. But today there are millions of collectors waiting behind you in line.

Coin shown larger than actual size of 40 mm.

Impatiently. They want to save the pandas too. And since we can guarantee there won’t be enough of the 2012 Silver Pandas for everybody, you’re unlikely to get a second chance. The Chinese silver rush is ON. 1.3 billion Chinese were only given the right to own silver a mere eight years ago. What does that mean for the 2012 Silver Panda? Demand is greater than ever. The time to collect is now. Until recently, the majority of Panda coins were exported. But now, the Chinese have become the largest buyers of their own coins. In fact, hungry silver Panda collectors have created shortages almost overnight in Pandas available to the rest of the world. And when in-demand coins become hard to find, their values can soar!

June 20 IS THE LONGEST DAY OF THE YEAR—USE IT. HERE ARE SOME GREAT IDEAS IDEAS. EVERY MINUTE OF IT FORD, TOUGH In 1960s Montana, a 15-yearold boy’s life is upended when his parents are jailed for bank robbery, his twin sister runs off, and he’s banished across the border. Then things get worse. Canada brings new twists to author Richard Ford’s favorite themes: fate, family, and the American experience.

Two great showmen bare their souls in new albums. Alan Jackson (above) is beloved for honky-tonks like “Good Time,” but on Thirty Miles West, he strikes a deep, personal chord with “When I Saw You Leaving,” a song written for his wife, who successfully battled cancer. You’ll hear plenty of Kenny Chesney’s stadium rock persona on Welcome to the Fishbowl, but it’s the laid-back, off-season Chesney who wins out with “Come Over,” a sad, slow-burning song about not being able to let go of a love.

Ask Marilyn By Marilyn vos Savant Sunscreen manufacturers recommend that their products be applied 15 to 30 minutes before exposure to sunlight. If you first apply a sunscreen when you’re already in the sunshine, how is its effectiveness altered? —Linda Weller, Fresno, Calif.

The effectiveness is delayed at least 15 minutes while the product dries. This can be significant exposure depending on the time of day and the fairness of one’s skin. And if you do this repeatedly—say, over the course of a weeklong vacation—you’ll build up a low level of UV radiation damage without even noticing it. There’s no such thing as a safe suntan, including “base” tans intended to delay burning. If one’s natural skin color has changed after UV exposure, the skin has been damaged.

Clockwise from top left: The guys gather round the grill—from left, Brendan, Jack, Andrew, John, and Luke; Besh’s grilled avocado and tomato salad; Andrew gets ready for the next course; Jenifer joins the fun; grilled rib eye steak; grilled corn on the cob.

Rummaging around in the kitchen of his Slidell, La., home, John Besh—a former U.S. Marine turned awardwinning celebrity chef who runs nine restaurants and has written a pair of highly regarded cookbooks—stumbled upon something that made his stomach sink: a crumpled-up fast-food bag. He snatched up the offending item, showed it to his wife, Jenifer, and asked, “Really?” “Yes,” she answered, unapolo-

getically. Turns out, Jenifer, who isn’t naturally drawn to the kitchen and has her hands full raising four active boys with a husband who works nights, had picked up the quickie meal. “You know,” she said, “if you were half as concerned about what your boys eat as what your customers eat, we’d have a healthier family.” Sobering stuff for Besh, who not only enjoys a booming career as the handsome, happy face of New Orleans cooking but is a vocal


champion of eating local. A rare combination of good ol’ boy (he hunts and fishes) and cutting-edge culinary master (he won a James Beard Foundation Award in 2006), Besh, 44, opened Restaurant August in 2001 and has since added seven more eateries in the New Orleans area, plus one in San Antonio. He is also a ubiquitous presence on reality cooking shows (his own, Chef John Besh’s Family Table, is scheduled to air on PBS in April 2013) and makes scores of appearances sup-

porting everyone from beleaguered fishermen in the Gulf of Mexico to marines in the Persian Gulf. Besh knew Jenifer, a childhood schoolmate and his wife of 19 years, was right, and he vowed to make amends. “That moment was a turning point,” he explains on a sunny afternoon in his kitchen, as he prepares shrimp and pasta for his brood—Brendan, now 16; Jack, 11; Luke, 9; and Andrew, 7. “We needed a plan.” He’s not the only one who’s con-

cerned about his clan’s eating habits. The past few years have seen an explosion of interest in the family dinner. In 2003, then president George W. Bush made a public service announcement with his mom, former first lady Barbara Bush, endorsing the rituals of family dinners. (The president joked that he grew up enjoying family dinner, “so long as my mother wasn’t cooking.”) Since then, celebrities like Jamie Lee Curtis and George Lopez, and even Major

League Baseball teams like the Boston Red Sox and Los Angeles Dodgers, have taken up the cause. One reason for all the interest is a wave of research that says children and teens who eat with their families are less likely to drink or smoke, do drugs, get pregnant, suffer from depression, and develop eating disorders. Studies have also found that children who enjoy family meals have larger vocabularies, better manners, higher self-esteem, and more resilience.

ut it is the duo’s most innovative idea that has proved the most effective: They’ve stopped stressing about having to eat dinner every night at six. First they turned “family dinner” into “family breakfast.” As Besh writes in his latest book, My Family Table: A Passionate Plea for Home Cooking, which lays out lavishly illustrated recipes from each phase of their new routine, “As a chef, I seldom have the opportunity to be that typical father who is able to spend time in the evenings with the lads. So I figure if I’m to have any quality time with them, it has to be early morning.” Besh takes this meal on himself, with a repertoire of all the kids’ favorites—pain perdu, buttermilk pancakes, cheesy grits, and biscuits. He also leaves wraps on the table, just in case someone’s in a hurry. Even more inventive is the Beshes’ approach to evenings. During the school year, with the boys eating lunch as early as 10:30 a.m. (the cafeteria can be overcrowded), they come home hungry, and with sports practices starting as late as 5:30 p.m. (so that parents who work can coach), the family is rarely home during dinner hour. So Jenifer began serving “dinner” every day at 4 p.m. One of the boys says grace, she serves her jury-rigged meal (it might be continued on page 17

Manner Up! Modern etiquette made easy

Q: My cousin Kerry got married nine months ago and though I wasn’t able to attend the ceremony, I sent a check as a wedding gift. I just found out that the check still hasn’t been cashed, and my bank’s policy is that checks over six months old are void. Kerry and I aren’t that close, so I’m not sure what to do: Should I send her a replacement with a note explaining that the check was never cashed? Or is that too awkward? —Alexandra J.,


Youngstown, Ohio

A: Good manners are running amok here! Asking “Why didn’t you cash my check?” may seem a little awkward, but any discomfort on your cousin’s end will surely fade amid the warm glow of cold, hard cash. Remember, you wanted her to have the gift, and she probably lost it in the throes of wedding fever. I’ll bet your coz was too polite to ask you to replace it, so she didn’t say anything. My advice: Send a new check with a note. Even though you’re not in frequent contact, it’s a nice way to check up on the newlyweds. And hey, it’s been nine months; maybe you’ll soon have a reason to send another congratulatory check. —Judith Newman Send your questions to

SWEAT. SCORE. AS YOU GET OLDER, REALLY GREAT. BUT DON’T FORGET TO VACCINATE. Now’s the time to help prevent Shingles with ZOSTAVAX® (Zoster Vaccine Live). ZOSTAVAX is a vaccine that helps prevent Shingles in adults 50 years of age or older. Shingles is caused by the same virus that causes chickenpox. The virus stays in your body and can resurface at any time as Shingles—a painful, blistering rash. And no matter how healthy you feel, your risk increases as you get older. The sooner you get vaccinated with ZOSTAVAX, the better your chances of protecting yourself from Shingles. In fact, the ACIP* of the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) recommends that appropriate adults 60 years of age and older get vaccinated to help prevent Shingles.

Talk to your health care professional to see if ZOSTAVAX is right for you. ZOSTAVAX is given as a single shot. ZOSTAVAX cannot be used to treat Shingles, or the nerve pain that may follow Shingles, once you have it. For more information, visit or call 1-877-9 SHINGLES.

ABOUT ZOSTAVAX ZOSTAVAX is a vaccine that is used for adults 50 years of age or older to prevent Shingles (also known as zoster).

Important Safety Information  ZOSTAVAX does not protect everyone, so some people who get the vaccine may still get Shingles.  You should not get ZOSTAVAX if you are allergic to any of its ingredients, including gelatin or neomycin, have a weakened immune system, take high doses of steroids, or are pregnant or plan to become pregnant. You should not get ZOSTAVAX to prevent chickenpox.  Talk to your health care professional if you plan to get ZOSTAVAX at the same time as PNEUMOVAX®23 (Pneumococcal Vaccine Polyvalent) because it may be better to get these vaccines at least 4 weeks apart.  Possible side effects include redness, pain, itching, swelling, hard lump, warmth, or bruising at the injection site, as well as headache.  ZOSTAVAX contains a weakened chickenpox virus. Tell your health care professional if you will be in close contact with newborn infants, someone who may be pregnant and has not had chickenpox or been vaccinated against chickenpox, or someone who has problems with their immune system. Your health care professional can tell you what situations you may need to avoid. You are encouraged to report negative side effects of prescription drugs to the FDA. Visit or call 1-800-FDA-1088. Please read the Patient Information on the adjacent page for more detailed information. *ACIP=Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices

You should read this summary of information about ZOSTAVAX before you are vaccinated. If you have any questions about ZOSTAVAX after reading this page, you should ask your health care provider. This information does not take the place of talking about ZOSTAVAX with your doctor, nurse, or other health care provider. Only your health care provider can decide if ZOSTAVAX is right for you.

What is ZOSTAVAX and how does it work? ZOSTAVAX is a vaccine that is used for adults 50 years of age or older to prevent shingles (also known as zoster).

You should not get ZOSTAVAX to prevent chickenpox.

ZOSTAVAX contains a weakened chickenpox virus (varicella-zoster virus). ZOSTAVAX works by helping your immune system protect you from getting shingles. If you do get shingles even though you have been vaccinated, ZOSTAVAX may help prevent the nerve pain that can follow shingles in some people. ZOSTAVAX does not protect everyone, so some people who get the vaccine may still get shingles. ZOSTAVAX cannot be used to treat shingles, or the nerve pain that may follow shingles, once you have it.

Children should not get ZOSTAVAX. How is ZOSTAVAX given? ZOSTAVAX is given as a single dose by injection under the skin. What should I tell my health care p rovider before I get ZOSTAVAX?

Sunday Joe One thing I loved about my dad is that he believed in the American dream and was a hopeless romantic. He taught us that if you worked hard and loved what you did, you’d be successful. Even when he was out of work for a year and a half, he always believed that better days were ahead. And you know what? He was right to have faith in his God and in his country. MIKA BRZEZINSKI: My father taught me to look at failure as a good thing, even if you don’t realize it at the time, because it opens the door to other opportunities. When I called him the day I was fired from CBS, weeping, that’s what he told me, and he was right. It was like getting a gentle, fatherly, loving embrace over the phone. It made me feel like the little girl he used to hug when I fell down. JOE: I think the quality I admired most in my father was how joyous he was. He just loved life. He loved his wife, he loved his family, and he threw himself at everything he did with great gusto. This is my second Father’s Day without him. He

passed away last year, and it’s still hard to believe he’s gone. MIKA: What I admire most is my father’s moral compass; it guides everything he does. One thing

both he and my mother imparted to us was to always have goals. They really felt that part of building kids was to educate them, to teach them to have

interests so they can contribute. The only thing I didn’t listen to was how hard to study. I got into trouble with every report card. JOE: The worst trouble I ever got into was when I was 5 years old and my ne’er-do-well friend across the street coaxed me into going into our neighbors’ house and opening up all of their Christmas presents while they were away. This was the great scandal of 1969. The punishment was extreme. I was not allowed to watch Mr. Ed for a week. MIKA: I try to incorporate the lessons my father taught me as a parent. Sometimes I wonder if I’m measuring up. I feel challenged by today’s society and technology and everything that kids seem to get so easily now. JOE: Mika and I both work very long hours. I often find myself dragging when I get home, but then I remember how active my father was, and how energetic and joyous he was. And that gets me up out of the chair so I can be that kind of father to my kids. Tune in to Morning Joe on MSNBC, weekdays from 6 a.m. to 9 a.m.

Homemaker Invents A Shine That Lasts Miracle Polish Ends Struggle With Tarnishing Metals. By D.H. Wagner


ately I have noticed quite a few newspapers and magazines praising a polish formulated by a homemaker. The articles report that Donna Maas grew frustrated with rubbing and scrubbing her silver, brass and other metals only to see them quickly become dull and tarnished again. Determined to put an end to her constant battle with tarnish Donna formulated a metal cleaner and it’s transforming the industry. Anita Gold, nationally syndicated columnist and expert on the restoration of antiques calls MAAS (named after its inventor) “The best and most amazing polish in the world.” Ms. Gold wrote in her column, “A truly miraculous polish referred to as “miracle polish” that’ll turn the most disastrous pieces into the most de-brightful is MAAS Fine Polishing Creme For All Metals, which cleans, restores, preserves and polishes to perfection any brass, copper, chrome, silver, stainless steel, aluminum, gold or any other metal with amazing results – no matter how badly stained, spotted, discolored, flood-damaged, weathered, dirty, dingy, drab, or dull they may be.” Since I had an old brass lamp in desperate need of restoration, this journalist decided to put MAAS to the test. The lamp had been stored in the garage and was in far worse condition than I remembered. I was flabbergasted as I watched the polishing creme wipe away layers and years of tarnish. Never have I used anything so easy. The lamp actually looks better than when I purchased it. Better yet, months later it’s still glowing! The polish worked so effortlessly, I decided to refurbish my mother’s collection of antique brass and copper cookware. The badly stained pots and pans developed black spots that had been impossible to remove. MAAS wiped away the years of built-up residue even from the most discolored pieces. While polishing the pots and pans, I noticed MAAS applying a shine on the stainless steel sink. So I cleaned the entire sink with the creme. WOW! The shine is unbelievable

and although I wash dishes every day, the shine keeps-on-shining. And it’s no longer covered with ugly water spots – water just rolls off the protective finish and down the drain. An independent consumer study of 28 metal polishes reports, “MAAS Polishing Creme has no equals in all around polishing performance...” MAAS retained its shine longer than every polish tested. Good Housekeeping Institute recommends MAAS for restoring heavily tarnished heirlooms stating, MAAS cleans best and gives lasting results.” The Miami Herald says “Polishing product can renew old silver.” The Chicago Tribune headline sums it all up by saying “One Amazing Polish Is The Best At Everything.” How did a homemaker come up with something the industry’s experts couldn’t? The reporter in me had to find out. During our interview Donna explained, “I enjoy the warmth that beautifully polished metals add to a home. However, not the hours it took to keep them tarnish free. The harsh cleaners always left my hands dry and burning – one instant silver dip smelled so bad I felt sick. When I read the label, I discovered it contained cancercausing ingredients. That's when I became determined to find a better way to care for the metals in my home.” And that she did. Her formula developed in conjunction with a chemist friend quickly restores and leaves a deep, rich one-of-a-kind luster beyond anything I've ever seen. “To my surprise,” Donna reveals, “the formula far exceeded my original goal. MAAS restores glass fireplace doors, clouded crystal vases, fiberglass, linoleum and even plastic.

The restorations were so remarkable everyone suggested that I sell my invention on television.” Donna sent samples of her polish to televised shopping channels and both QVC and The Home Shopping Network asked Donna to personally appear on TV to demonstrate her product. 17,000 viewers called during MAAS’ debut and encore performances quickly brought a million dollars in record-breaking sales. Leona Toppel was about to throw away a brass chandelier. “No amount of elbow grease could shine it up. With very little effort (a big plus for me because I suffer from arthritis) MAAS made that chandelier look like new. It’s been years and to everyone's surprise it’s still glowing.” “MAAS outperforms every polish I’ve tried,” Donna beams with satisfaction. “So if you’re as tired as I was of cleaning metals just to see tarnish reappear a few weeks later, MAAS it!”

At Last, A Polish That Keeps Metals Shining! Finally, you can restore every metal and more to it’s original beauty with MAAS easy wipe-on, wipe-off, no-wait polish.

When the family returns around 7:30, she dispatches the boys to the shower, then gathers them back in the kitchen for dessert. Not surprisingly, 11-year-old Jack declares this the best part of his day (his favorite treat is lemon icebox pie). Notice the new routine: three family meals being served during the course of a day—and none of them at a traditional dinnertime. “Instead of feeling guilty because you don’t have the six o’clock thing,” reasons Jenifer, “just come together as a family whenever you have the time.” Those who endorse family dinner love this idea.

WHO IS INCLUDED IN THE ECONOMIC & PROPERTY DAMAGES SETTLEMENT? The Economic and Property Damages (“E&PD”) Settlement Class includes people, businesses, and other entities in the states of Louisiana, Alabama and Mississippi, and certain counties in Texas and Florida, that were harmed by the oil spill. The website DeepwaterHorizonSettlements. com has detailed descriptions and maps to help you determine whether a geographic location may be included in the E&PD Settlement. Additionally, you can call 1-866-992-6174 or e-mail questions@DeepwaterHorizonEconomicSettlement. com to find out if a geographic location is included.
