Gates to speak at chamber meeting BY FRED MANN The Wichita Eagle

Former Defense Secretary and Wichita native Robert Gates has served under eight U.S. presidents from both major political parties, and he isn’t endorsing either of this year’s candidates. Known as a bipartisan pragmatist, he is wary come election time. “Harry Truman said, ‘Every four years in our elections, we sometimes take on the characteristics of a primitive people at the Gates time of a full moon,’ ” Gates said.

Army seeks to redefine itself as Afghan war winds down

FORT POLK, La. — Shortly after dark, the paratroopers jumped out of C-130s into a Caspian Sea country teeming with mayhem, political unrest and insurgents. Their first mission was to prevent a U.S. consulate from being overrun. Then they were to repel an invasion by a hostile neighboring nation that was after oil wealth of the fictional country of Atropia. If all went according to plan, the mission would last no longer than a few weeks. A protracted ground war this would not be. The training exercise — which kicked off in this Army base in Louisiana last week — is among the first the U.S. Army has designed in an effort to overhaul the country’s fighting force as the war in Afghanistan draws to a close.

n January 2009, just days after the inauguration of President Obama, Charles and David Koch met in their company headquarters in Wichita with their longtime political strategist, Rich Fink. The country was headed toward bankruptcy, they agreed. Fink told them bluntly that Obama’s administration represented the worst of what Charles and David fear most: a bloated, regulation-heavy, free-spending government that could plunge the country into another deep recession. That day, Fink advised two of the richest men in the nation that it would be the fight of their lives to stop the government spending spree and to change the course of the country, starting with the 2012 election. “If we are going to do this, we should do it right or not at all,” Fink, 61, recalled telling the brothers. “But if we don’t do it right or if we don’t do it at all, we will be insignificant and we will just waste a lot of time and I would rather play golf. “And if we do it right, then it is going to get very, very ugly.” Three and a half years later, President Obama accused the Koch brothers of engineering “a corporate takeover of our democracy.” The brothers’ political spending and the network of conservative political organizations and think tanks they fund have sparked protests. Two years of condemnations and criticism prompted Charles Koch to break his silence about politics. In his





Libel trial to focus on Britney Spears’ meltdown Britney Spears’ darkest days are about to be revisited in a Los Angeles courtroom, but not by the resurgent pop singer. Instead jurors will begin hearing testimony this week on claims by Spears’ former manager that he was vilified and unfairly blamed for the singer’s public meltdown more than four years ago. Spears’ parents are defendants and will likely testify, but the panel won’t hear directly from the Grammy winner. Former Spears confidante Sam Lutfi is seeking millions of dollars from Spears and her family, claiming her mother’s book lied about him drugging and isolating the pop superstar. He is also seeking a portion of the singer’s profits, claiming he was a key player in her 2007 album “Blackout” and had the right to serve as her manager for years. Instead, the singer spent much of that time recovering under a court-ordered conservatorship, with her father and fiance continuing to exert control over her personal life. It is highly unlikely the star will be a witness during the trial, although a judge has said she will consider a request by Lutfi’s attorney to call Spears as a witness midtrial if necessary. A probate judge overseeing Spears’ conservatorship has ruled that the singer’s caretakers should not allow her to testify “under any circumstances.” Lutfi’s attorney has cited the singer’s record tour and her current role as a judge on Fox’s “The X Factor” as reasons for why the singer should testify, but he may have to settle for the testimony of Spears’ divorced parents, father Jamie Spears and mother Lynne Spears. Jury selection began Friday and will continue on Tuesday, with opening statements expected later in the week.

A resisting-arrest charge is pending. Linhart’s lawyer, Lawrence LaBrew, says Linhart maintains his innocence.

Todd said. Since the Republican convention in late August, the Obama side has run 28 percent more ads than Romney and all the groups behind him combined, according to estimates from Kantar Media/ CMAG. Democrats spent slightly more than Republicans during that time, taking advantage of rules mandating cheaper ad time for campaigns and also seeking out less expensive airtime at different times of day.

Whether at home, at work or in public education, simply spending more money doesn’t guarantee better results.

Gary Collins, actor and TV host, dies at 74 public and producers of those programs have tapped into this insatiable desire for stronger formats, stronger issues, stronger confrontations, a stronger examination of subject matter and reality subject matter. And that was never ‘Hour Magazine,’ ”

Collins told the Los Angeles Times in 1989 soon after the show was canceled. Describing himself as “inquisitive, sensitive, caring, likable, nonconfrontational,” Collins added, “I don’t think all television has to be on that hard edge. . . . That’s basically not a part of my character.” Collins had also been emcee of the Miss America Pageant in the 1980s and hosted other televised variety programs. Born April 30, 1938, in

Venice, Calif., Collins enrolled in Santa Monica City College before joining the Army. He became an announcer and disc jockey for Armed Forces Radio and began acting. After his military service ended he landed a starring role in the 1965 sitcom “The Wackiest Ship in the Army” and followed with regular roles in the TV series “Iron Horse,” “The Sixth Sense” and “Born Free.” He also had a string of guest star appearances in popular prime-time programs.

They would result in less flying time for pilots, less troop training in tanks and equipment, and would also mean cancelling or stretching out modernization programs, such as Boeing’s tanker project, until they actually end up costing more. “I hope there are enough adults left after the election that they can get this thing fixed before sequestration comes into effect,” Gates said. Gates said the defense budget accounts for only 15 percent of federal expenditures, yet would absorb half the sequestration cuts, a situation he called “crazy.” He called sequestration “the most mindless possible kind of cut because it’s across the board.” “The whole sequestration

scenario reminds me of the scene in ‘Blazing Saddles’ where the sheriff holds a gun to his head and says, ‘Don’t make me shoot this man,’ ” Gates said. Gates, who was respected by leaders of both parties while he was in Washington, D.C., didn’t sound optimistic that today’s gridlocked lawmakers could strike a deal and stop the cuts. Although bitter partisanship in Washington is nothing new, he said, “What’s disturbing is, in the past, we have always, in times of trouble, overcome that partisanship to get things done.” The last time U.S. lawmakers allowed their bitterness to bring the basic business of the nation to a halt led to the Civil War, Gates said. “The question is whether our politicians can get beyond their partisanship and do the right thing for the country,” he said.

From Page 1A appearance is fitting. In May, the Kansas Air National Guard 184th Intelligence wing’s complex at McConnell was named after him, and he attended the ceremony. Gates, who was born in Wichita and graduated from East High in 1961, has been in Wichita many times, he said. He often arrives unannounced to visit family, including his 99-year-old mother, Isabel. “I try to get back whenever I can,” Gates said by phone from his home in the Pacific Northwest. He stepped down as Defense Secretary 16 months ago and is working on two books, including one about his time as Defense Secretary under presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama. He already has authored one book, “From The Shadows: The Ultimate Insider’s Story of Five Presidents and How They Won the Cold War.” Gates also has joined in a consulting partnership with former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and former national security advisor Stephen J. Hadley. At the chamber event, Gates said, he plans to talk about the troops and what they have accomplished, and about global events. Some of those events, particularly violence in Libya and Syria, have become central to the presidential race and will be among the likely topics of Tuesday’s debate between President Obama and Republican challenger Mitt Romney. In his first major foreign policy speech, Romney on Monday said the U.S. should put Iran on notice that this country and its allies would stop Iran from making nuclear weapons, beginning with a show of military force, including restoring the presence of aircraft carriers in the Mediterranean and the Persian Gulf. Gates said that most of what Romney proposed in the speech isn’t new. There has been a significant naval presence in the Gulf since he was secretary, he said. The U.S. has imposed sanctions against Iran and they keep getting tighter, he said. Recent demonstrations in Tehran show they are having an impact. “In terms of specifics, most of what he was suggesting already has been done,” Gates said. “The president has said we won’t allow the Iranians to get a nuclear weapon. That’s pretty clear.” Gates declined to comment on the Sept. 11 raid on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, that killed U.S. ambassador Chris Stevens, a State Department computer specialist and two former Navy SEALs. The raid has spawned a congressional hearing and drawn criticism from Romney and the GOP about the Obama administration’s handling of security at the consulate, and for the way it described the attack first as a spontaneous protest over an anti-Muslim Internet video, and later as a terrorist act. “I learned a long time ago not to take a position until hearing all the facts, and I don’t know what all the facts are,” Gates said. As for Syria, where a revolution against President Bashar Assad has increased instability in the Middle East, Romney said Monday that the U.S. must join other nations in helping arm Syrian rebels to oust Assad. Romney cast Obama’s efforts as weak and part of a broader lack of leadership in the region and the world.

Finally, A Proven Solution For Fibromyalgia Pain Numerous studies have shown the benefits of chiropractic care in fibromyalgia patients.

I’ve made it my mission in practice to help those suffering with chronic pain like you.

Dr. Frederick Wolfe, a well-known investigator of fibromyalgia and clinical professor at the University of Kansas School of Medicine, ran a study on fibromyalgia.

Because of this, I’m running a special offer for women suffering from fibromyalgia.

He asked patients to indicate drug or alternative treatments that best relieved their pain.

For 12 days only, $35 will get you all the services I normally charge new patients $257 for!

Dr. Wolfe found that changes in lifestyle worked better than drugs and stated “Chiropractic treatment also scored among the most effective measures.”

What does this offer include? • An in-depth consultation about your health and well-being where I will listen…really listen…to the details of your case. • A complete neuromuscular examination. • A full set of specialized x-rays to determine if a spinal problem is contributing to your pain or symptoms… (NOTE: These would normally cost you at least $100). • A thorough analysis of your exam and x-ray findings so we can start mapping out your plan to being pain free. I’ll provide answers to all your most probing questions about fibromyalgia like… …the best nutritional supplements proven to help with fibromyalgia.

Another study examined the effectiveness of chiropractic in relieving fibromyalgia symptoms.

Fibromyalgia is often called the invisible disease. You look fine on the surface, but underneath you’re often exhausted and in excruciating pain. My name is Dr. Nathan Hands, a local chiropractor. Over the past few years I’ve used gentle treatments to help many fibromyalgia patients feel

…which position, mattress, and pillow you should use for a good night's rest. …the foods that can help you and which ones can make you worse. …how to exercise the right way so you aren’t making your pain worse. The offer is only good until October 26th. The appointment will not take long at all. And you won't be sitting in a waiting room all day either.

Healing those areas will give you more energy, less pain, and a better life! Call today 316-729-4500

For Many Women, There Is Hope. You Just Need The Right Plan.

Our office is located at the northeast corner of 13th and Maize in Wichita, just a few minutes away. Call anytime between the hours of 9:00 am and 6:00 pm Monday through Friday. Tell the receptionist you’d like to come in for the Special Fibromyalgia Evaluation before October 26, 2012.

Imagine how great you could feel without your constant fatigue and nagging pains.

I look forward to helping you get rid of your pain so you can start living a healthier, more joyful life.

Imagine waking up each morning, jumping out of bed, and enjoying the day…no more waking up and feeling like you got hit by a truck.

Sincerely, Dr. Nathan Hands, D.C.

After just a few chiropractic treatments, fibromyalgia patients suffered from less pain and fatigue, and actually enjoyed better sleep.(JMPT 2000)

Imagine not having to take handfuls of pain pills that haven’t helped and can have side effects.

Another said… “For people who take good health for granted, it’s hard to imagine a condition that makes simple tasks great tests of will and determination.”

Internally you can sense that certain areas of your body aren't as they should be.

Imagine what it would be like to finally have hope again. To have a doctor finally tell you what's wrong and what you can do to help yourself feel better. By working together, we can customize a treatment plan just for you. And best of all, there will be… No Harmful Drugs, No Uncertain Procedures, And No Intimidation. A woman knows her own body.

P.S. What Will Your Fibromyalgia Pain Feel Like 1 Month From Today? One of the biggest myths about pain is that it goes away all by itself, without any treatment. A May 1998 study in the British Medical Journal proved this myth false, showing that 75% of back pain sufferers who do nothing about it will have either pain or disability 12 months later. Let’s face it, if the pain hasn’t gone away by now, it’s not likely to disappear on its own. Don’t let this be you, call me today and see if I can help you 316-729-4500

Silence on abuse reports plunges BBC into scandal BY SARAH LYALL New York Times

LONDON — As host of the television programs “Jim’ll Fix it” and “Top of the Pops,” Jimmy Savile was one of the British Broadcasting Corp.’s best-known figures in a fourdecade career spanning the 1960s to the mid-1990s. But now he is the subject of numerous posthumous investigations into whether he sexually abused perhaps dozens of underage girls, some of them on BBC property. The scandal has engulfed the corporation, which failed to investigate rumors or take seriously accusations about his behavior at the time. It even canceled a segment

about the allegations that was scheduled to be broadcast last December on “Newsnight,” an influential evening currentaffairs program. At around the same time, the corporation broadcast three tribute programs to Savile, who died last year at 84. The BBC has said that the “Newsnight” segment was canceled not out of concern about the corporation’s reputation, but for “editorial reasons,” because the accusations could not be substantiated. But on Friday, its new director general, George Entwistle, announced that an independent panel would investigate whether any BBC executives improperly pres-

sured “Newsnight” to drop the program. The director general of the BBC at the time the segment was canceled was Mark Thompson, the incoming president and chief executive of the New York Times Co. In a letter sent to members of Parliament on Friday, a BBC spokeswoman said neither Thompson nor Entwistle was involved in the “Newsnight” decision. Last week, Thompson was quoted in British newspapers saying that he had “no involvement whatsoever not to pursue the ‘Newsnight’ investigation.” He was also quoted as saying, of Savile, “I never heard of any rumors nor received any complaints or allegations while I was

director general at the BBC.” The allegations have been around for years, but they were publicly aired this month when ITV, a commercial television station, broadcast a documentary in which five women said they had been molested or raped by Savile when they were teenagers. “Top of the Pops” featured

the chart-topping singles of the day, and in “Jim’ll Fix It” he granted Britons, mostly children, their wishes, like playing with a new-wave band or meeting Muhammad Ali. Before the ITV program was broadcast, the BBC preemptively released a statement saying it had looked into the matter and found no evi-

dence to support the allegations against Savile. But that all changed in recent days. Issuing a “profound and heartfelt apology” to possible victims, Entwistle also said a second independent investigation would look into the “culture and practices” of the corporation during Savile’s tenure and afterward.

Gore to counter that Ohio is attempting to favor one group of voters above all others. And now, in a case with both legal and political ramifications, the Supreme Court must decide whether to intervene just three weeks before the election in a state that both Obama and Republican challenger Mitt Romney consider critical to their chances of winning. The issue is whether Ohio may allow only military voters to take advantage of in-person early voting in the three days before the Nov. 6 election. A district judge and a panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 6th Circuit said the state had not shown why it should differentiate among groups of voters. “While there is a compelling reason to provide more opportunities for military voters to cast their ballots, there is no corresponding satisfactory reason to prevent nonmilitary voters from casting their ballots as well,” the appeals court said. Nearly 100,000 voters cast their ballots previously during the three days in question. Ohio’s request that the Supreme Court stay the appeals court decision comes amid an unprecedented number of voting law changes across the country, concerning who is eligible to vote, under what circumstances and how those votes will be counted. It has led to fierce partisan battles and a string of lawsuits that mostly have been concluded without the high court’s intervention. But Ohio wants the justices to set aside the 6th Circuit’s ruling and allow its changes to go into effect. Although the state has permitted early voting on the weekend before the election in the past — long lines on Election Day in 2004 prompted the change — the Republican-controlled legislature ended weekend voting this year, saying local boards of election needed the time to prepare. The state made an exception for military voters, who it said could be deployed at any time and thus miss the chance to vote. Such decisions, it says, are for each state to make.

From Page 1A Afghanistan by the end of 2014 will conclude a chapter of expensive and unpopular war in that country and in Iraq that began more than a decade ago and led to the deaths of more than 6,000 American troops. The new army, senior military leaders say, must become more nimble, its officers more savvy, its engagements more nuanced and almost certainly shorter. The lessons of the Arab Spring weigh heavily on war planners, with an array of threats looming in the Middle East and elsewhere. A high premium is being placed on devising the proper use of Special Forces, drones and cyber capabilities. “My premise is that the world is going to get more complex, it’s going to get more difficult,” Army Chief of Staff Gen. Ray Odierno said Tuesday en route to Fort Polk, where he observed the first phase of the training exercise. “We’re going to need leaders who can be very adaptive.” The transition is fraught with challenges. The Pentagon has been ordered to slash its budget by $487 billion over the next decade. As part of that effort, the Army intends to shrink from its 2010 wartime peak of 570,000 active-duty soldiers to 490,000 in 2017. After growing accustomed to largely unquestioned spending during the Iraq and Afghanistan wars, commanders will now face painful fiscal choices. For the past decade, Fort Polk and other Army training centers have mainly prepared soldiers for the type of challenges they would face in Iraq and Afghanistan. But it’s hard to tell what the next major conflict will look like, so the new training exercises encompass an amalgam of threats, military officials say. The soldiers involved in the exercise here are tasked with helping an allied nation push back an invading force, while battling two insurgencies. Special Forces working closely with conventional units and troops have been ordered to show deference to American civilian officials with vast experience in the country. “As we focus the Army for what we think the next conflict is going to look like, we need to be mindful that it will require closer cooperation among State, Defense and intelligence agencies working together to fulfill the mission,” said Robert Mosher, a retired Foreign Service officer playing the role of an embattled consul general in the exercise. To make the training more realistic, a would-be consulate was created as part of a fake village that had previously been built for the training of soldiers deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan. Surrounding woods became Atropia, a battlespace for roaming soldiers from the 82nd Airborne Division. Col. Bill Burleson, a commander at the Joint Readiness Training Center, said today’s Army is more battletested than it has been in decades. But the flurry of threats — ranging from hostile nations with nuclear programs, a possible war between Israel and Iran, and burgeoning insurgencies in North Africa and the Arab world — can be dizzying to contemplate, he said. “We’ve got tremendous operational experience after 10 years-plus of fighting,” he said. “What we’ve set out to do is put together a training exercise that trains for the uncertainty and ambiguity of the future.” A key challenge, Army officials acknowledge, will be retaining top talent as midcareer officers and enlisted soldiers mull new job prospects and the era of major land wars ends. Frederick Wellman, a retired Army lieutenant colonel who runs a public relations firm focused on defense and veterans issues, said the thought of a peacetime job will probably be jarring for troops that have spent a decade at war. “A lot of guys who have all this combat experience, and with incredible responsibility, now see a future where they’re working in a cubicle at the Pentagon or in some


“My premise is that the world is going to get more complex, it’s going to get more difficult. We’re going to need leaders who can be very adaptive.” Army Chief of Staff Gen. Ray Odierno obscure headquarters,” he said. “A lot of these young men are saying: ‘I want more opportunities, I want more.’ ” Odierno said the Army is trying to create enough interesting assignments and short deployments for training missions to keep soldiers excited. But he said he’s mindful that the Army might lose exceptional soldiers to the private sector. One such officer, Maj. Seth Bodnar, a West Point graduate and Rhodes scholar who served as an aide to Odierno

in Iraq, decided to leave the Army last year. He loved serving, he said, but wanted to try his luck in the private sector. Bodnar said he hopes the Army manages to retain the ability to innovate during peacetime. “I think one of the challenges of the Army as a whole will be maintaining the edge, that dynamism and innovative spirit that characterized the Army over the past decade,” he said. “When the incentive is to innovate or die, you innovate.”

Kansas wind energy company will sell power to Alabama ASSOCIATED PRESS

GARDEN CITY — Developers of a multimillion-dollar renewable energy project in southwest Kansas have an agreement to sell some of the wind-generated power to Alabama. TradeWind Energy, of Lenexa, announced a deal with Alabama Power Co. to supply power from its Buffalo Dunes Wind Project near Garden City. The project is expected to be built on about 42,000 acres in southwest Kansas.

The purchase agreement was approved by the Alabama Public Service Commission on Sept. 17, according to a release from TradeWind. TradeWind officials have been working to secure long-term leases for about 40,000 acres of land in northeast Grant County and northwest Haskell County for the turbines. The company said the project will create about 150 new jobs during the construction phase, and when fully operational, will have about 15 full-time employees. The wind farm is expected to be

operational by December 2013. County officials have estimated the project will generate $350,000 in the first year for Grant County and $500,000 for Haskell County. Haskell County Commissioner Randy Froelich said he is not concerned that wind energy produced by the project will power homes in Alabama, rather than Kansas. “Anything that we can sell from Kansas to another state and generate some income in Kansas is a plus, as far as I’m concerned,” he said.

voters in eight swing states, under the name of Strategic Allied Consulting. Sproul told the Los Angeles Times that he set up that company because RNC officials, fearful of bad publicity, wanted to conceal his role in the operation. Sean Spicer, an RNC spokesman, said that never happened. He said the party thought Sproul had strong systems in place to prevent such problems, but dumped him after the allegations sur-

faced because it has “zero tolerance” for fraud. Rep. Elijah Cummings, the ranking Democrat on the House Oversight Committee, said Friday that Sproul had refused to cooperate with his request for information. As a member of the minority party, Cummings can’t compel Sproul to cooperate. “This obstruction is particularly disturbing in light of Sproul’s own statements that he worked with the RNC to

conceal his shady record,” Cummings said. “This is not a ‘zero tolerance’ policy, this is an orchestrated campaign to hide the truth.” In a letter to Cummings, attorney Frederick R. Petti said Sproul “appreciates your offer,” but thinks it’s a better idea to “stay outside the realm of politics, especially given the closeness of Election Day.” He said Sproul is continuing to cooperate with Florida officials in their fraud investigation.

AREA NEWS IN BRIEF Driver seriously injured in crash on Kellogg A 22-year-old man was transported to Via Christi Hospital on St. Francis in serious condition Saturday morning after he lost control of his car on Kellogg and rolled it down an embankment. The accident happened about 9:45 a.m. on westbound Kellogg, just across from Newman University. The man’s car left Kellogg, crossed the onramp from Edwards/ Meridian, rolled at least once, crashed through a fence and landed in an open field that sits behind Church at the Cross and is bordered by Custer. The man was alone in his car, and no one else was injured. Sgt. William Stevens said police were still investigating what caused the man to lose control of the car and were interviewing people who called 911 after seeing the accident. — Denise Neil

Augusta man injured after truck hits tree An Augusta man suffered critical injuries when his truck struck a tree Saturday morning, authorities said. Curt Riggs, 62, was driving a 2011 Ford F150 westbound on K-196 near Potwin when

he slid into a ditch and hit the tree around 8:50 a.m., the Kansas Highway Patrol reports. The patrol said Riggs was traveling too fast to safely navigate the rain-slicked highway, causing the crash. Riggs — the truck’s sole occupant — was transported to Wesley Medical Center for treatment. He was listed in critical condition early Saturday evening, a Wesley operator said. — Amy Renee Leiker

Richard A. Boese, 43, of Harper, was driving a 1999 Plymouth minivan westbound on K-42 when he hit the Ford minivan, the Highway Patrol said. He and his passenger, a Nebraska woman, also suffered possible injuries, but were not transported for treatment. The Wichita teen was listed in critical condition at Via Christi Hospital on St. Francis, a supervisor said Saturday. The other teen was treated and released.

Like the company hired by the RNC, Strategic Allied Consulting, the Delaware company does not list Sproul’s name as an officer. This spring, Wisconsin Republican Party paid Issue Advocacy Partners $500,000 for work during the recall race of Gov. Scott Walker, campaign finance reports show.

chairman of the board and CEO of Koch Industries Inc. Washington, D.C. It’s a very corrosive atmosphere. As (economist Friedrich) Hayek said, you get there, and you get what he called the Fatal Conceit. You start to believe that a few wise people back there know how people should live their lives better than the people themselves do. So we need to tell them more and more how to live their lives, what kind of toilet they can have, what kind of food they can have. You don’t want to eat fat anymore. You shouldn’t have coffee. The poor I think it’s scary with this administration that is dedicated to fundamentally transforming this country, and that means bigger and bigger government, more intrusive, less productivity, less opportunity. And so who does that hurt the most? Hurts the poorest Charles Koch people. The less productivity, they’re the ones that suffer. It’s not going to change my lifestyle that much. It’s going to hurt them. Free markets A free-market economy starts with property rights that are defined in a way, that those who, to get benefit from your property, to profit from use of your property, you need also to bear the cost. And if you get the benefits, but you’ve socialized the cost, get other people to bear the cost, then you get unproductive behavior, and the system breaks down. Politics One thing we’re trying to do is find others, other business people and philanthropists who have the courage and the dedication to defend a free society. But unfortunately a majority of large public companies are not into that. Either they don’t have the courage because they are afraid they’ll be punished, their products will be boycotted, or they’ll be attacked, as we are by the administration and the media. Or, they’ve become cronyist, and oriented their business to satisfying the politicians rather than individual consumers. Political parties I’m neither Republican or Democrat, although we support more Republicans than Democrats, because although many of them are far from our ideal, they would be closer to it than most of the Democrats. But if there’s a Democrat who’s more interested in a free society and economic freedom, and how to increase productivity, and human well being in society, we’d support those people. Integrity We have it as principle number one for a reason. Because integrity is a requirement for trust. . . . I mean, if you have to document everything, check on everything, have very detailed rules, I mean, productivity, cooperation break down. So that’s number one on who we hire, who we promote, who we retain. If we have somebody who shows a lack of integrity, we try to get them out of here as fast as we can. Happiness “The essential condition for happiness is fully developing your abilities, whatever they are, your unique abilities, and then applying them in a way that makes a contribution. Being the best mechanic you can be is just as good, if you’re satisfied with it and you’re making a contribution, as making a lot of money or being a neurosurgeon, or anything else, because you can’t control what capabilities, what your unique characteristics, are. Those are given and you just need to find out what those are and develop them.





From Page 1A most extensive interview in 15 years, Charles Koch, along with his family and friends, talked about why he wants to defeat Obama and elect members of Congress who will stop what he calls catastrophic overspending. Government recklessness threatens the country and his business, he said. The Kochs say the price for their political involvement has been high: Death threats, cyberattacks on their business, hundreds of news stories criticizing them, calls for boycotts of the company’s consumer goods, and what the brothers see as ongoing and unjustified public attacks from the Obama administration. The Kochs aren’t finished. Win or lose in November, they plan to start a new fight. They are organizing dozens of business and grassroots groups to build support for eliminating all corporate and agricultural subsidies. The country must deal with corporate welfare, which they say exceeds $350 billion a year, before it can rein in spending on Social Security and Medicare, Fink said. “How is any American going to feel good about reforming Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security when there is so much cronyism going on with these companies and businessmen are making off with so many tax dollars?” Fink asked. The Kochs won’t say how much they are spending or specifically what they are doing to defeat Obama, but it’s enough to prompt critics to question how much political influence one family should have. “The Koch political machine is the most elaborate, comprehensive financial dip into American politics since Standard Oil and the robber barons a century ago,” said Larry Jacobs, a political scientist at the University of Minnesota. “This is the 21st century version of how you buy yourself a government in America.” Their motive, Jacobs suspects, is wealth. “The rest of this may well be the means to an end.” Charles Koch says his enemies accuse him of maneuvering “so that we can be free to plunder or exploit people, exploit our employees, exploit our customers. “And if that’s true, why are we the only large company that’s doing this?” he asked. “If this were the easy way to make money, why wouldn’t they be doing it?” Charles Koch, 76, said he would prefer not to get involved in politics. “I look at those activities as defensive,” he said. “That is, we need to preserve enough liberty and enough of a market economy so people can speak out and have independent resources to provide diverse opinions, and try to put some limits on the growth and intrusiveness of government.”

So what’s interferes with the markets, whether “Really?” Holden said. “If my kids the big difference?’ ” through subsidies, taxation or excessaid that to me, they’d be going to sive regulation, it diminishes prosperity. A case in point, Charles Koch said, is low interest rates. “I worry about the policy of the Fed, with zero interest rates. Okay, that may make some of the banks a lot of money, but what does it do to the person who saved? Who’s counting on income? How are they going to invest? They’re going to make now very risky investments to get any return. It’s zero return on depositing your money now. That wasn’t what they banked on when they saved this money and thought they’d have enough to live on when they retired.” Another is the housing crisis. The problems, he said, started with regulations. “Fanny and Freddie were subsidizing the majority of houses, and they were directing the banks where to put it, and underwriting losses. So once Seth Wenig/Associated Press again, this is, the banks profited from this, and the losses were socialized. People attend an Americans for Prosperity rally in New York on Sept. 20.

National debt A possible forecast of what might happen if these policies continue is the nation of Greece. My god, their debt is gigantically high, unemployment is well over 20 percent in Greece, and they have rioting in the streets, God forbid that should happen to us. The Environmental Protection Agency We have some very large refineries, and we have some great projects that we’d like to invest in to meet the demands of our customers, that is, the aviation fuel customers, the heating oil customers, and motor gasoline customers, and these refineries that we have... Well, the EPA has been sitting on several hundred requests from refineries and David Koch chemical plants to upgrade and expand their facilities. And the EPA has only, since Obama’s been president, granted one permit. And that permit is being litigated by environmental groups blocking it, so refineries are essentially paralyzed, they can’t expand and improve their operations. My god, we’re a fossilfuel-based society. And I think we’re going to have, if this continues, a big shortage of fuel to operate our economy. Family My parents had a strict policy that all of us dined together. We always had dinner at 6:30. We had a big bell outside our back door of our house, which someone would ring when it was time to come, and no matter where we were, we had to run back to the house and sit down with my parents. Father was a very principled, highly ethical person, and also he had many fabulous experiences in his career, and it was wonderful to listen to him tell these stories, of experiences he had. Philanthropy Most of the income I receive, and my brother, we give it away for various purposes. I in particular am very supportive of medical research, in particular cancer research. I’m a major giver of funds support to cultural institutions. I’m very well known in New York City, where I live, as a major supporter of cultural institutions. And the educational institutions I attended, I’m very generous with them. Cancer If one is exposed to cancer, it’s a terrifying disease. Boy, when I first found out I had prostate cancer 20 years ago, I thought, oh, my numbers are really bad, and I thought I was a goner and that I might pass away within the next year. I’ve been treated in many different ways, and the Good Lord has been sitting on my shoulder, and in my opinion protecting me, and I’m in great shape now. I still have prostate cancer, but it’s well under control. Legacy After I pass on to another life, I would like the people to think of David Koch and my brother Charles as people who did everything they could to make the world a better place to live. And that we tried to improve the situation … and do good work in all these different areas. I’m doing my darndest to make that happen, and so people think of me in a positive light. That my life was a good life, that I contributed immensely to improve the well-being of others.

million. “We’re going to participate effectively in the election, let’s just put it that way,” David Koch said. Fink said simply, “We are doing a lot.” Providing more information, he said, would increase criticism. “Anybody who sticks their head up is going to get shot. We understand that. We’re sticking our head up and getting shot.... Any information you put out there just increases the number of bullets and arrows, so why do that?” The Koch Industries Political Action Committee has spent $2.3 million in the 2012 election cycle, according to the Center for Responsive Politics. They’ve spent more than $60 million lobbying Washington in the past decade and $13.6 million backing political candidates, usually Republicans, since 1990. The total amount being spent isn’t public, thanks to campaign finance laws that allow nonprofit groups to keep the identity of their donors secret. Americans for Prosperity plans to spend $110 million to defeat Obama, its director, Tim Phillips, told the national media in early August. When the Obama administration called on the nonprofit earlier this year to release its donor list, it refused. The Kochs say that only a small part of the money is coming from them. In 2009, the Kochs donated less than 8 percent of the AFP’s $27 million budget, according to the company. This year, David Koch told Weekly Standard, they are donating less than 10 percent of the organization’s budget. In additional to the presidential race, the Kochs are influencing Congressional and state races. Republicans need to win control of four seats to control the U.S. Senate. In Ohio, a spokeswoman for Sen. Sherrod Brown, a Democrat, said the Koch family has invested more money to defeat him than any other senator. “The Koch brothers have joined numerous other third-party, secretlyfunded groups to pump more outside money into this race against Sherrod than has been spent against any other Senate candidate in the country, and it is the only reason Josh Mandel is remotely competitive,” said campaign spokeswoman Sadie Weiner. In Kansas, Koch Industries was the largest donor to the Kansas Chamber of Commerce’s political action committee in the August primary, contributing $125,000 to help defeat 10 moderate senators, a quarter of the state senate.

Fighting for what they believe in The Citizens United ruling has made it possible for families like the Kochs to successfully dominate political debate, Steele said. Middle-class America is losing its influence in the political process, he said. “The idea that a handful of folks who just happen to have a lot of money have everyone’s best interests at heart, that’s not what America’s about,” he said. But Fink says the Kochs aren’t doing anything for their cause that labor unions and Hollywood aren’t doing for Obama and Democrats. “If you look at the money that comes in from the labor unions, plaintiffs attorneys, whatever, it far exceeds the resources coming in from this side,” he said. “So I would say that if it is one family or a group of people, the point of view we are trying to represent is underfunded, not overfunded... This is going to sound wrong, but what do you say to the Founding Fathers? There was a very small group of people that were a minority that changed the whole country. You say George Washington had too much influence? We shouldn’t allow them to do that? And we should have spread the influence around?” Jacobs, the Minnesota political scientist, calls the Kochs the powerbrokers of the Republican Party, but warns that if Romney loses they may be ostracized. The American business community, Jacobs said, is almost certain to take a dim view of the Kochs’ move against corporate subsidies. “Once you get into the other things businesses rely upon – subsidies and tax exemptions – there’s a tension between the Koch brothers and mainstream business that hasn’t played itself out yet.” The Kochs realize as they prepare for their campaign to end corporate subsidies that they are about to become even more unpopular with political parties and special-interest groups that depend on government. But throughout the history of the world there have been small groups of people who have changed society, Fink said. They aren’t backing down. “We believe America is at a tipping point,” Fink said. “That with our debt, with our government spending, if you look at the economics of it, it is totally unsustainable.... We are in the process of destroying America, of destroying the American dream. We believe just like the... American revolutionaries did, there is going to be a small group of people who stand up and fight to save the country. Otherwise we have lost it.”



Turkish premier slams U.N. council BY FRANK JORDANS Associated Press

Associated Press

Turkey’s Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Saturday criticized the U.N. Security Council for its failure to help end the 19-month civil war in Syria.

ISTANBUL — Turkey’s prime minister sharply criticized the U.N. Security Council on Saturday for its failure to agree on decisive steps to end Syria’s civil war, as NATO ally Germany backed the Turkish interception of a Damascus-bound passenger jet last week. Recep Tayyip Erdogan told an international conference in Istanbul that the world was witnessing a humanitarian tragedy in Syria. “If we wait for one or two of the permanent members … then the future of Syria will be in danger,” Erdogan said, according to an official interpreter. Russia and China, two of the five permanent Security Council

members, have vetoed resolutions that sought to put concerted pressure on Damascus to end the conflict and agree to a political transition. Erdogan called for a reform of the Security Council, which he called an “unequal, unfair system” that didn’t represent the will of most countries. He spoke as Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu met with Arab and European leaders amid growing tensions between Turkey and neighboring Syria. Davutoglu held talks Saturday with Arab League chief Nabil Elaraby, German Foreign Minister Guido Westerwelle and U.N. envoy on Syria Lakhdar Brahimi. He said after the meetings that Turkey was prepared to use force again if it was attacked, just as it

did last week when a shell fired across the border from Syria killed five Turkish villagers. “If a similar incident occurs again from the Syrian side, we will again take counter action,” Davutoglu said, while stressing that the border between Syria and Turkey is also the frontier of NATO. One week after the shelling, Turkey intercepted a Syrian passenger plane en route from Moscow to Damascus and seized what it said was military equipment on board. Syria denounced the move as air piracy, while Russia said the cargo was radar parts that complied with international law. Germany’s foreign minister backed Turkey on Saturday, saying Berlin would have acted the same way if it believed

Romney seeks Ohio votes as Obama prepares for debate Republican presidential candidate, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, shakes hands after speaking at a campaign rally at Shawnee State University on Saturday in Portsmouth, Ohio.



ORTSMOUTH, Ohio — Republicans Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan went back to school on Saturday to rally college students in all corners of all-important Ohio and hammer at President Obama for going easy on China over unfair trade practices. Obama took precious time off the campaign trail to practice for the next debate against his GOP rival. It was an unspoken acknowledgment of the importance that Obama attaches to upping his game in debate No. 2 that he is largely dropping out of sight for five straight days in the final weeks of the race to prepare for Tuesday’s encounter in Hempstead, N.Y. Even while cloistered for debate prep at a sprawling resort in Williamsburg, Va., Obama didn’t completely cede the spotlight to Romney. His weekly radio and Internet address highlighted his administration’s work to revive the U.S. auto industry – a message aimed squarely at working-class voters in manufacturing-heavy states like Ohio. On Saturday, Romney told a crowd of more than 3,000 at Shawnee State University in Portsmouth that Obama was ducking an important decision on whether China is

manipulating its currency to gain a trade advantage. A decision was due on Monday, but the Treasury Department said Friday that the decision won’t come until after global finance officials meet in early November. That means a decision is unlikely before the Nov. 6 election. Romney framed the issue as a matter of jobs, saying cheap Chinese products were driving American companies out of business. “We’ve got to get those jobs back and make trade to be fair,” he said. Ryan, too, criticized the administration for failing to hold China accountable for its trade practices. During a morning appearance in northeastern Ohio at Youngstown State University, he told a crowd of about 1,400

that the president had led the country toward a higher national debt, steeper taxes and insufficient job growth. “We can’t keep going down this path,” he said. “We can’t keep accepting this is the new normal.” The Obama campaign dismissed the Republicans’ tough talk on China as nothing more than talk. “Mitt Romney will never crack down on China’s cheating – just look at his record,” Obama campaign spokesman Danny Kanner said in a statement. He said Romney had opposed Obama administration efforts to impose tariffs on Chinese-made tires and had invested in companies that shipped American jobs to China. Obama’s campaign upped its celebrity quotient as the two sides claw for any ad-

vantage in a tight race: Actor Morgan Freeman’s commanding voice narrates a new ad telling voters that Obama has met the nation’s challenges and “the last thing we should do is turn back now.” On Thursday, Bruce Springsteen will team up with former President Bill Clinton to rally Obama voters in Parma, Ohio, in what will be the singer’s first political appearance this campaign. “The Boss” plans a second event Thursday, in Ames, Iowa. Springsteen campaigned for Obama in 2008, too. Both sides are devoting huge time and effort to Ohio, this year’s battleground to end all battlegrounds, where polls show Obama with a slight edge over Romney.

Events should help those uncertain about fluoridation The latest SurveyUSA poll regarding Wichita’s water fluoridation ballot vote found the proponents’ side still leading but uncertainty growing. In the poll of 549 likely voters last week, 47 percent said they planned to vote “yes,” compared with 35 percent who said they’d vote “no” and 18 percent who weren’t certain how they’d vote. In late September’s poll, also sponsored by KWCH, Channel 12, 46 percent were “yes” voters, with 40 percent planning to vote “no” and 14 percent undecided. In August, 62 percent of Wichitans polled said they would vote for adding fluoride, with 31 percent against and 7 percent undecided. Those looking for more debate on the issue will get it this week, when the Sedgwick County Commission hears from speakers at its Wednesday meeting and KPTS, Channel 8, airs a debate from 8 to 8:30 p.m. Thursday. The League of Women Voters also will hold a forum on fluoridation at noon Oct. 23 at the Central Library.

Bardo didn’t wait for inauguration to get busy Though he officially started on the job on July 1, and unofficially began before then, congratulations to John Bardo on being inaugurated Friday as president of Wichita State University. Bardo has been a whirlwind of activity since returning to Wichita (he taught at WSU from 1976 to 1983) and has ambitious plans for boosting and transforming the university.

Moran concerned about military voting Whatever the reason, it’s a serious concern that the number of absentee ballots requested by military service members is much lower this year than in 2008. Sen. Jerry Moran, R-Kan., brought welcome attention to the issue last week, accusing the Defense Department of failing to adequately assist service members in voting. “The Department of Defense has an obligation under federal law to assist those voting on military installations overseas. No effort should be spared to make certain the men and women serving our country in uniform – and the families by their side – can exercise their right to choose the leaders responsible for sending them into harm’s way in defense of our democracy,” Moran said in a statement.

Restore money for neighborhoods A few months ago, the Wichita City Council voted 4-3 to take $50,000 from the neighborhood cleanup fund. This money was to be used to fund cleanups in any neighborhood of the city that organized a project and brought out volunteers to work within the neighborhood. Two or three cleanups happen all over the city each Saturday from April through October. Hundreds of tons of trash, furniture, brush, tires, appliances, etc., are removed and the city improved. Removal of this material reduces breeding areas for insects and rodents and safety and fire hazards, and it helps to keep or improve property values for all citizens, even if they do not directly participate. That $50,000 translates to about 13.1 cents per citizen. The money taken from this activity was combined with funds taken from other sources and reallocated to fund a bus route faced with shutdown. Though I support having a good public transportation system, the route in question has fewer than 100 users. The proposed replacement program for cleanups is a logistical nightmare. It will be fiscally impossible for neighborhoods to fund and will result in the destruction of a program that has benefited the city for more than 20 years. Are there four City Council members who think Wichita citizens are worth 13.1 cents each? Restore the cleanup funding. JIM UNDERWOOD President Sunflower Neighborhood and Business Association Wichita

Renew tax credit A letter from the Kansas state director of Americans for Prosperity was a direct attack on my job, hundreds of others in Kansas, and tens of thousands across the United States (“Let credit expire,” Oct. 4 Letters to the Editor). Wind power and the wind production tax credit (PTC) have kick-started an economy-boosting and job-building industry in Kansas. Because of increased windpower production, nearly 500 American manufacturing plants build wind components, towers and blades. Also thanks to the PTC’s success, the equivalent number of homes that Kansas wind farms now power is more than 430,000. Also, wind power’s costs have declined 90 percent since the 1980s, with improved technology and U.S.-based manufacturing making it competitive with other energy sources. Instead of losing jobs overseas, wind power is behind a boom in generating jobs in Kansas and other states. That means we not only are saving money but also are running our homes on a clean, renewable and domestic energy supply that will keep the lights on for years to come. I used to be a mechanical assembler at Siemens’ Hutchinson plant. I welcome wind power in Kansas and strongly support the renewal of the wind PTC.

Target consumers

Our market economy grows when spending grows. Consumer spending accounts for about 70 percent of the economy. Yet the bulk of the tax cuts passed by our Republican leaders in the state government are going to businesses. It would have been smarter to give the bulk of the tax breaks to the 70 percent. The Republican ideology has it wrong. Businesses are not the job creators. They hire in reaction to the increased demand for their goods and services. The real job creators are the American consumers. When consumers buy more, businesses hire more. Why would a business hire more employees when it doesn’t have the need for new employees?

should expire BY BENJAMIN ZYCHER


In this political season of wild applause and loud catcalls, let us reserve some of the former for policymakers willing to endorse positions unpopular at home but consistent with the larger public interest. In particular: a hearty round for U.S. Rep. Mike Pompeo, R-Wichita, who despite local pressures has offered strong opposition to an extension of the production tax credit for wind power. The PTC, now 20 years old, is scheduled to expire at the end of this year. Despite years of claims that just one more extension – there already have been six – would make wind power competitive, investment in the industry is collapsing as a final burial for this massive subsidy looms large. And “massive” is the right adjective to describe the distortions that the PTC creates for the electric power sector, the hidden costs that it imposes on consumers and taxpayers, and the weakness of the arguments offered to support it. The PTC encourages the producers of wind power to underprice their electricity in local markets, thus distorting the mix of generation away from the one that minimizes overall production costs. The general underpricing problem will yield underinvestment over time and a sharp reduction in the efficiency and reliability of the electric system. There are no free lunches. The argument that the PTC “creates thousands of jobs” conflates full-time, part-time, permanent and temporary employment across businesses with vastly different degrees of importance to the production of wind power. More important, it ignores the adverse employment effects of the federal taxes needed to finance the PTC, and of the economic distortions and hidden costs. The PTC does not level the playing field with the supposed subsidies enjoyed by fossil fuels: The subsidies given wind and other renewables are hundreds of times larger per megawatt-hour, and the tax provisions affecting conventional generation are not “subsidies” properly defined. (Example: The percentage depletion allowance is a form of depreciation.) Pompeo understands that Congress does not hand out favors for free. Just as taxpayers in other states are forced to finance the PTC for Kansas wind farms, the complex bargaining process in Congress that yields federal budget outcomes means that Kansas taxpayers must foot the bill for pork elsewhere, with the federal bureaucracy taking a healthy cut of the action. Kansas should applaud the end of the PTC.

U.S. Rep. Mike Pompeo, R-Wichita, recently defended his leading the fight against the wind production tax credit, a tool that helps keep electricity prices low, promotes economic development, and encourages development of proven clean energy (Sept. 30 Opinion). He also referred to his so-called Energy Freedom and Economic Prosperity Act and claimed that it would level the playing field. The most cursory examination shows that, in fact, his bill is a lopsided, anti-wind formula that hurts Kansas workers and impedes the progress we’re making toward energy independence. The PTC is due to expire at the end of the year, and as time runs out for the program, announcements of new wind-energy industry layoffs grow by the day. According to Navigant Consulting, 37,000 Americans stand to lose their jobs by the end of the first quarter of 2013 if Congress does not extend the PTC. Hundreds of Kansans are losing their jobs in the manufacturing sector, and wind-energy development companies are also ramping down operations. Pompeo states over and over that he should not be picking winners and losers in Congress and neither should our federal government. However, his legislation leaves in subsidies for oil and gas industry while targeting the PTC. That’s a choice. A member of Congress should be working to bring economic opportunity home to the district – not actively punishing an industry sector his district is uniquely positioned to lead. We need to end the disinformation and political posturing that target the PTC while declaring sacred the federal subsidies for oil, gas and nuclear power. Using no water, with no emissions and no fuel costs, wind power is bringing economic development to rural Kansas while providing affordable electricity to serve Kansas cities and for export to other states. Due in large part to the PTC, Kansas today is first in the nation in economic investment from wind generation. In 2012 Kansas was the recipient of more than $3 billion in new wind-generation projects as we double our wind-generation fleet. The PTC has been a tool to keep manufacturing jobs in America, refine and enhance wind technology, and create a boom in onshoring jobs in Kansas and other states. More than 65 percent of a Kansas-installed turbine’s value is produced right here in America, at facilities such as the Siemens plant in Hutchinson. We can’t let Congress pull the plug on the PTC.

Romney sounds tough, but he only knows how to hide his money overseas or send a horse abroad to an Olympic event. ■ ■ ■ Our ambassador died, the Obama administration lied, and the bungled cover-up will see his re-election effort fried. ■ ■ ■ In a classic Republican move, they cut the budget to defend our embassies, then hold hearings condemning the president for an attack on one of them.

Bowllagio returns before City Council BY BILL WILSON The Wichita Eagle

AREA NEWS IN BRIEF Register to vote by Tuesday for Nov. 6 election Voter registration for the Nov. 6 general election ends Tuesday. To register, you may go to the Sedgwick County Election Office, 510 N. Main, Suite 101, and fill out an application there. You also may call the office at 316-660-7100 and request that one be sent to you. A list of nearly 70 registration locations in Sedgwick County can be found at www.sedgwick The list includes all QuikTrips, city clerk’s offices, libraries, Wichita’s main City Hall and all neighborhood city halls. Most government-related locations will forward the applications to the election office. To download a printable application, go to the Secretary of State’s website,, or the Sedgwick County Election Office’s website. Starting Jan. 1, Kansans registering to vote for the first time will be required to show proof of U.S. citizenship.

A west-side bowling and retail development will be back before the Wichita City Council on Tuesday, two years after it was dropped amid complaints from some members of the city’s bowling community. Developer Jay Maxwell’s Maize 54 LLC is seeking pay-as-you-go tax increment financing for Bowllagio, an 86-acre development on blighted floodplain land just north of Kellogg on the east

side of Maize Road. Plans call for a mixed-used development anchored by the Bowllagio Bowling and Family Entertainment Center, along with retail, hotel, restaurants and office space. TIF financing – using the increased tax revenue from a development to pay for eligible public improvement costs, including land acquisition, site preparation and infrastructure – would cover infrastructure work along Kellogg and Maize Road, land acquisition, utility work and fill dirt to re-

move the area from the flood plain, according to city documents. What isn’t included in the latest incarnation of Bowllagio is a renewed request for $13 million in sales tax revenue, or STAR bonds, a state incentive for developments designated as regional economic development draws. “That’s just too big of a hill to climb,” said City Council member Jeff Longwell, whose district includes the proposed project. “There’s more work that needs to be done out there,

and a pay-as-you-go TIF like this is better suited to what they need.” Tim Austin, a Wichita engineer who has served as a spokesman for Maize 54, did not return calls Friday seeking comment. On Tuesday, the council will be asked to adopt a resolution setting a Nov. 20 public hearing on the TIF request. In September 2010, the council approved a community improvement district for the development, which imposes special taxes to

fund some public and private improvements and cover some operating costs within the bounds of the district. The original Bowllagio plan, a 33-acre development including a boutique hotel and a Latino restaurant by Food Network chef Aaron Sanchez, was pulled in June 2010 after City Council members were besieged by complaints from members of the bowling and restaurant communities objecting to Please see CITY, Page 4B

Allen, Donald Fredolin, Sept. 10, 1935 - Oct. 6, 2012. Donald Fredolin Allen (Fred), died Saturday at a retirement home on Mercer Island. He was 77. Born Sept. 10, 1935, in Valley Falls, Kansas, Fred was the son of Kansas State Senator Donald Chester Allen and Rosemary Carver Allen. He graduated Wichita High School North in 1953. He married Kathleen Kay from Heber City, Utah, on Dec. 16, 1960, and earned his B.S. in computer science in 1973 from Washington University. Fred transferred with Boeing from Wichita to Seattle in 1977, shortly after which he started Level II, a software firm that created computer dispatch police systems throughout America and parts of Europe. He presided as the company’s president until his retirement in 2009. Fred delighted in word play, spinning prose that very nearly required a Ph.D. in linguistics to decipher. When writing about his wife taking her dog, Arthur, for a walk: Kathy said that her gorge had risen beyond the bearable and, fearing Arthur's would have done, took him out for some fresh air, noting that she was herself near overcome by the sulfurous whiff of duplicity. Bach, Beethoven and Mendelssohn he adored. But just to prove he appreciated pop culture, he listened to the occasional sea shanty, Carmina Burana or Tubular Bells. Elvis? The Rolling Stones? Not so much. For Fred, these artists were evidence of "the decline of the Western Civilization." Fred was a man of great appetite, mostly for blue steak, penury ("Look it up!"), motorcycles, history and math. He had a deep, sonorous voice and prided in singing when goaded (very lightly goaded). He was proud of his pioneering family in Kansas, who stood up to the KKK, fought for freedom in many wars, farmed the land, shod many horses, and wrote many, many letters. Fred was a great personality. He will be dearly missed. Preceded in death by his parents and brother, Richard Legler Allen, Fred is survived by his wife, Kathleen Kay Allen, his sons, Donald Fredolin Allen II, Samuel Kay Allen, his daughter, Deirdre Allen Timmons, his niece, Adabel Loretta Allen, his grandchildren, Mary Jane Tatoy, Kimberly Ann Allen-Baldwin, Christopher Richard Allen, Rosemary Elizabeth Timmons, and his great-grandchildren, Carmen Gonzales and River Gene Baldwin. Private services will be held. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that you put that money in your own savings account. Fred would approve of that. Remembrances may be shared at

Obituaries continued from page 2B Knapp, Cerita Lee, 73, was born December 15, 1938 in Morrilton, Arkansas to Ruby Lee and Roy Lee Gilley. She spent her childhood in So. Hutchinson Kansas, attended So. Hutchinson Grade School and Hutchinson High School. She was active in 4-H as a young woman, played the French horn in the marching band and enjoyed roller skating, ice skating and soft ball. Throughout high school she worked at Murray Drug behind the soda fountain to help earn her tuition toward nursing school. She traveled by freight train to Dodge City, Kansas to attend St. Mary of the Plains Nursing School completing her training at St. Joseph Hospital. She met her husband Richard L. Knapp on a blind date set up by Dick and Ann Edmiston who thought them an ideal pair. They married on June 24, 1962 and were steadfast friends for the remainder of their life together. After her career in nursing and the birth of their two children Wendi and Dana she worked beside her husband for years. With an eye for fashion she always loved shopping and enjoyed visiting with friends, playing cards with her sisters and volunteering at church. She bravely suffered more then her share of physical trials yet found her joy in the simple things, always grateful for her many friends from grade school to nurses training and the many supportive neighbors that enriched her life. Her door was always open and you could count on a good game of cards, crafts and lively conversation at the kitchen table. Reveling in her role as grandmother she read a thousand books to Evelyn, Ian and Isaac while they snuggled on her lap. Her grandchildren were the center of her universe. She was preceded in death by her parents and husband and survived by her three sisters Bonnie, Sonnie and Sherry, who were her best friends, her daughters Dana and Wendi and two sons in law Mark and Thanh. Her sisters in law faithfully called her even when they were unable to travel the distance to visit in person. Her faith and church were very important to her and we know now she is with her angels. We would like to acknowledge the generosity and grace of her caregivers towards the end of her life. Her strength of character and generosity were admired and she will be missed by many. Services to celebrate Cerita’s life will be held on Monday, October 15 at 1 pm in the Chapel at East Heights United Methodist Church, 4407 E. Douglas Ave., Wichita, KS 67218-1009.

From Page 1B the course?’ ” Among those at the expo were Julie Reed and her running buddy, Amy Dokken. Reed, who will turn 49 on Sunday, decided on a whim last week to give the half marathon a try. The duo run for at least an hour three times a week, and last year did the 10-mile Turkey Trot. The two grabbed samples of organic granola and crackers, and both took advantage of on-site massages. Dokken bought a pair of new running shoes.

City documents don’t indicate whether the boutique hotel and the Sanchez restaurant remain part of the plan. Sanchez subsequently opened a restaurant a year ago in Leawood, backed financially

“It’s always been on my bucket list to run a half marathon,” Reed said. “I’m starting my 50th year in life, so I have to do something awesome.” The race, which will fill streets all over Wichita on Sunday morning, has grown in the three years since the commission took it over. As of Saturday, 4,300 people were registered for five different races: the marathon, half marathon, 5K, fun run and walk and a youth marathon. Organizers expect 17,000 people to watch the race somewhere along the route, which for marathoners starts at the Hyatt Regency downtown and goes as far east as 13th and Woodlawn. Runners represent 46 states by Maxwell. The project’s return caught some of its 2010 opponents by surprise. Ray Baty, general manager of West Acres Bowling, 749 N. Ridge Road, said he was unaware that the project was still alive before a Friday telephone call. He pledged to renew his opposition at Tuesday’s meeting to the use of public money to finance his competitors. “They’ve been pretty quiet,” Baty said. “We’re adamantly against that.” Reach Bill Wilson at 316-268-6290 or

About 800 are registered for the marathon. More than 600 people will serve as volunteers at the race, staffing water stations and monitoring the route, and several local bands will be performing along the routes as well.

Affordable Care focus of health law institute BY KELSEY RYAN The Wichita Eagle

The Affordable Care Act was a primary focus of the 10th annual Kansas Health Law Institute, which drew representatives of hospitals and physician offices from throughout the state. Those at the institute, held Friday in Wichita and hosted by the Foulston Siefkin law firm, seemed to agree that it was unlikely that the law would be completely repealed – even under a Republican president and Congress. The law was approved in 2010, when Democrats controlled the White House and Congress. It has become a campaign issue on the state and national level, and Republican nominee Mitt Romney has vowed to repeal the law if he’s elected president. He’s also said, however, that he will keep some provisions of the act. Johnathan Rhodes, a Foulston Siefkin health care attorney from the firm’s Topeka office, outlined Please see INSTITUTE, Page 6B

New factory jobs provide lower wages BY ALEJANDRA CANCINO Chicago Tribune

CHICAGO — Jim Ellis had a job with benefits but gave it up for a shot at something with a bright future, if he could just get his foot in the door. In this part of the country, that meant he wanted to work for Caterpillar Inc., the construction equipment powerhouse. Now Ellis is on the morning shift at the company’s East Peoria, Ill., plant, installing fenders on tractors and working on hydraulic lines, a manufacturing job description that once promised an American middle-class lifestyle. The reality for Ellis is nothing like that. With the new job he started in January, Ellis’s pay jumped by $5 to $15.57 per hour, but he has no medical benefits for himself or his 3-year-old daughter, custody of whom he shares with his

Book early, expect to pay more to fly over holidays BY MOLLY MCMILLIN The Wichita Eagle


raveling by air over the holidays will cost more but may be a more pleasant experience compared with recent years – as long as you book your travel early and the weather holds. “If the weather’s good, it could be really a decent experience,” said Dean Headley, Wichita State University marketing professor and co-author of the annual Airline Quality Rating Report. “If not, it’s always a nightmare when the weather plays in.” Airline performance has been improving, although flights have been full. “Air travel will cost more, but if you can find a seat, it may operate better,” Headley said. In years past, holiday travel has been a struggle, with December one of the worst months in terms of industry performance, Headley said.

2011 best-performing airlines in baggage handling, denied boardings, customer complaints and on-time arrivals:

Last year, however, the airlines’ performance was good over the holidays, and data indicate the improvement has continued through the first six months of 2012. “If you book your travel early, chances are you’re going to have a good experience,” he said. “If you haven’t booked, and you’re waiting for that super good deal right at the last minute, that could be disappointing.” Fares have been heading up all year, with multiple hikes implemented by most airlines. So tickets are more expensive than in years past. Travelers who are willing to fly on the holiday itself — Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Day or New Year’s Day — may get a slight break on price, and a more enjoyable trip. For one, fewer passengers fly on the actual holiday. And flight attendants’ Please see TRAVEL, Page 6B

After years of debating the issue, Indian policymakers last month allowed big foreign chains like Wal-Mart and Tesco to set up stores in the country. But, in an acknowledgment of the significant dissent that remains, each of the country’s 29 state governments was granted the ability to forbid foreign-owned outlets in their territories.

be reasonable to slightly higher, but when the fees hit you, you truly feel that the overall cost of travel has gone up,” Headley said. “Maybe a year ago, the average price was $350, but with $75 in fees, that ticket seems noticeably more expensive.” When travel involves tickets for parents and children, those extra fees add up quickly. “At some point, consumers will simply say that the holiday visit is not worth the price and the hassle,” Headley said. He advises passengers to begin checking flights out of Wichita that have two stops before the final destination rather than one, as a way to save money. A recent flight from Wichita with two stops saved him $400 round trip. He also advises the use of a travel agent to find the best deals. “It’s money well spent,” he said. “It’s saved me any amount of anguish looking at three or four websites.” The best advice, however, is to keep your cool. “It is the holiday season,” Headley said. “Try to maintain as much of the season as possible.”

what steps would have to occur for the act to be repealed altogether. Rhodes said he thinks the Republicans will need a “GOP trifecta” in November to fully repeal the Affordable Care Act: a Romney win, a House majority and more than 60 members of the Senate, which would be “filibuster-proof.” However, he noted that a budget reconciliation bill would allow Congress to repeal certain provisions of the law, in particular those that rely on funding that could be withheld in a budget bill. Those provisions could include such things as health exchanges and subsidies designed to help lower-income Americans buy health insurance. “Really anything that affects the federal budget is something that could be either removed or added with reconciliation,” Rhodes told the institute attendees. “The key with reconciliation is that those provisions can be removed or added with a simple majority of the Senate. So they really would only need 50 seats in the Senate to do that, 50 because any tie would be broken by the head of the Senate, which is the vice president.” Rhodes said that Paul Ryan, the Republican candidate for vice president and a current member of the U.S. House, has said that 85 percent of the law could be, in effect, repealed through the budgeting process. Rhodes said that the Senate parliamentarian would decide if a particular provision was fiscal or regulatory, he said. “Even with the recent debates I think you saw the Republican candidates laying the groundwork for that position,” said attorney Scott Palecki, who practices health law at Foulston Siefkin’s Wichita office. Marta Fisher Linenberger, another Foulston Siefkin health attorney from Topeka, said in an interview that she thinks certain provisions would likely remain in place under Romney. She cited the provision that requires insurance companies to allow adults younger than 26 to

remain on their parents’ insurance, requirements regulating the coverage of people with pre-existing conditions and regulations regarding lifetime limits for benefits. Depending on who wins,

Between rent and child support, he acknowledges falling back on his parents for support. “If you talk to my mom and dad, they would tell you I’m an idiot because I’m barely making ends meet,” Ellis, 38, said. Reflecting on his pay, Ellis recalled the years he worked as an assistant manager at a fast-food restaurant. “It was one of the easiest jobs I’ve had,” he said. It was also the best-paying job he’s had. He earned up to $34,000 a year – a little more than $16 an hour. His move to Caterpillar hardly evokes the kind of jobs most people think about when they hear President Obama or his challenger, Mitt Romney, talk about bringing back manufacturing. The days when workers earned enough money to buy a car, a boat or a second home while supporting their families no longer exists for a growing number of people employed in manufacturing. Factory jobs can still be good, but in the past three decades, benefits have eroded and pay has stagnated for many, or even fallen. Some entry-level manufacturing jobs pay so little that workers depend on government aid to feed their families and pay for health care.

Wages have declined across many industries, including manufacturing, as unions have lost their bargaining clout, according to the Economic Policy Institute, a prolabor think tank based in Washington. Between 1973 and 2011, the median hourly compensation of workers, including wages and benefits, rose 10.7 percent; most of that increase occurred in the 1990s, according to the institute. Robert Bruno, a professor of labor and employment relations at the University of Illinois-Chicago, said earnings of newer manufacturing jobs “are not poverty wages, but they are not middle class. If the jobs don’t pay sufficiently better, sadly, it will turn the manufacturing sector into another low-wage market, and we already have many of those,” he said. With more than 12.5 million people in the U.S. unemployed, some politicians push manufacturing as an answer to the nation’s economic woes, suggesting that bringing back factory jobs from overseas represents a return to greater prosperity. Gary Pisano, a professor of business administration at Harvard Low-wage work Business School and co-author of “Producing Prosperity: Take Charles Montgomery. Why America Needs a ManuUntil he was laid off in midfacturing Renaissance,” is September, he worked for a skeptical of that approach. staffing agency that supplies “The idea that we will emlabor to Caterpillar.

Pisano said the country through a government-backed needs a policy aimed at spurhealth care program for the

ring research and development that will produce better-paying, highly skilled manufacturing jobs. The drawback, he said, is such jobs will be relatively small in number. Meanwhile, factory wages could fall even further, predicts Howard Wial, executive director of the Center for Urban Economic Development and a nonresident senior fellow at the Brookings Institution. Historically, Wial said, unionized workers have accepted concessions in bad economic times by counting on getting something back during good years. But that’s no longer necessarily true.

Tiered pay systems A case in point is the recent agreement between Caterpillar, enjoying record profits, and machinists at a plant in Joliet, Ill. In mid-August, after machinists had been striking for 31⁄2 months, the union approved a contract that calls for a one-time 3 percent wage increase for workers hired after May 2005 at a reduced hourly pay while freezing wages of those hired before that date who were on higher pay scales. The agreement, Wial said, may set the groundwork for companies to demand concessions from workers even while they are reaping robust profits. David Bozeman, vice president of Integrated Manufacturing Operations Division at Caterpillar, said the company’s philosophy is to offer workers around the world market-based wages, which are based on the competitive wage market in the area it is placing work. Tiered pay scales like those at Caterpillar have not only

become commonplace in the past two decades, but they also have prevented workers from significantly improving their hourly earnings; in many cases, pay has stagnated or been reduced. Under its 2011 contract with the United Auto Workers union, Ford Motor Co. can hire entrylevel workers at $15.78 an hour, roughly half of what veteran union workers are paid. Their wages could reach up to $19.28 per hour over the four-year contract but will freeze there. As a result, Ford plans to add 12,000 hourly jobs at its U.S. plants by 2015, including some that will be in-sourced from Mexico, China and Japan. Government officials tend to tout re-shoring announcements, but Wial said there’s a downside. “Competing for low wages is not good for American workers, is not good for consumers or companies either, although there is some benefit in the short term.” Wial said the low wages paid for in-sourced jobs usually result in unmotivated workers and in turn hurt innovation.

Financially stuck There are other costs as well for workers. Ellis, who worked for a staffing agency that supplied labor to Cat and finally joined the company as so-called supplemental worker, says he still feels stuck financially. As part of Cat’s “supplemental” workforce, Ellis pays union dues but can be laid off at any time and doesn’t qualify for benefits for up to two years. “I knew it could take up to two years. But they said that if you are a good worker, you would be converted as soon as possible. But once in the door, everyone forgot about me,” Ellis said. “It’s bittersweet.” Supplemental workers, he said, tend to toe the line, fearful that if they punch in late or do anything that might upset their supervisors, they’ll be fired. “The union won’t represent me because I’m a supplemental. It doesn’t make me feel good. I walk into work each day on eggshells.”

ou may not know Pablo Ferro. But you know his work. The same might be said for Timothy Gruver, who in 2002 had a vision for Wichita: Create a film festival. So he did, through much tenacity and labor. It started out small, growing every year. Gruver unfortunately died in 2005, but his legacy lives on as one of Wichita’s premiere events — the Tallgrass Film Festival. Thanks to a tireless staff and countless volunteers who have kept the festival running, you do indeed know Gruver’s work. The festival celebrates its milestone 10th anniversary this year, starting on Thursday and continuing through Oct. 21 with more than 120 films from around the world and

Tallgrass executive director Lela Meadow-Conner remembers the early days of the festival fondly. “When we first started, Tim and I went around and talked to people and they were like, ‘What’s a film festival?,’” she said. “Now people look forward to it. I think it’s really cool how the festival has grown in recognition and scope. I think Tim would be pretty proud.”

Wichita bride wins couture gown at auction


hen Alana Fearey arrived at the 40th anniversary celebration for Music Theatre of Wichita last year, she didn’t know she would leave with the promise of a couture gown. And not just any gown — her wedding gown. One of the live auction items was a made-toorder, one-ofa-kind gown by designer George Mitchell. He designed the costumes for Music Theatre’s “Sunset Boulevard” and “Honk.” He has been designing for many years and has become wellknown for his work. He takes time off from his job with the Craig Ferguson show in California to come to Wichita from time to time to design a show. “I need it for my creative outlet,” he said. The result of his creativity was a


wedding gown that the bride and entire wedding party were thrilled with. That includes Alana’s new husband, Bryan Longwell. “Oh yes, he loved it, and it turned out even better than I imagined,” Alana said. After she had the winning bid of $2,500, the process started with a phone conversation between the bride and the designer. At George’s request, Alana sent him a photo of her in a swimsuit so he could determine her body type and proportions. “She was so easy to work with, and she has a nice figure,” George said when he was in Wichita last summer. “She sent me photos of dresses she liked, then I sent her four drawings,” he said. While he was in town, the muslin prototype was fitted so that when the dress was made in the beautiful fabric and lace chosen, it would fit perfectly. Heather Coiner-Fernandez, who has worked for the Metropolitan Opera in New York, used safety pins on the muslin bodice while Alana stood very still.

“I’m so thankful Heather is here. She is an expert pattern-cutter. You can draw all the pretty pictures you want, but you’ve got to have a good cutter to get the perfect fit,” George said. “Once that bad boy is cut, it’s cut, so it has to be right.” The dress Alana picked from the drawings was a mermaid style with clean lines but plenty of beautiful details. She said the dress is so special to her because she got to be part of the design process and loved every minute of it. Even the wedding photographer, Tim Davis, could tell it was something special. “I did tell her that I’d seen a lot of wedding dresses, but I’d never seen one like hers,” he said. She has the dress, but it will be stored. So she’s thrilled to have the drawing that George did of her wedding gown and plans to have it framed. Her parents, Sharon and Alan Fearey, and her husband’s parents, Susie and Jeff Longwell, encouraged the bidding at the auction and were glad they did so.

Since its inception, the festival adopted the motto “Stubbornly Independent,” coined by late Wichitan Jake Euker, a longtime supporter of the festival. Meadow-Conner says the slogan was a key factor in choosing the opening night film, “Pablo,” a rousing documentary that blends film footage, animation and motion graphics to tell the story of Ferro, a colorful individual and renowned film artist. “He’s just such a stubbornly independent character,” Meadow-Conner said. “He made such an impact on the industry but no one really knows what he’s done. He’s not a household name.” But the films he’s associated with are. Ferro created groundbreaking title sequences for such films as “A Clockwork Orange,” “Dr. Strangelove or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb” and “The Thomas Crown Affair,” among many others. His work is dazzling, daring, bold and in-your-face. He made title designs as integral to the film as its plot. And he’s one of the rare artists who got opening screen credit for his designs. “Pablo” follows Ferro’s start in Havana, Cuba, to his work as a comic book artist for Stan Lee, who is interviewed in the film along with such other stars as Angelica Huston, Andy Garcia and Beau Bridges. Jeff Bridges narrates with his typically distinctive style. The film makes its U.S. premiere at Tallgrass on Thursday night. After working for Lee, Ferro stumbled into film. He became good friends with director Stanley Kubrick. He also would form a longtime, loyal friendship with director Hal Ashby. Ferro eventually became known for his outlandish style as well as his work, with a

The film follows his slow decline and, finally, his rebound. It’s an enjoyable, engaging, inspiring story that will appeal to die-hard film buffs, but it’s entertaining enough for the casual filmgoer, too. Film fans will find plenty of other movies to enjoy next weekend, as well. The festival’s program includes a spotlight on Scandinavian films, a children’s film festival dubbed “Smallgrass,” four evening gala screenings and afterparties, 19 narrative feature films in competition and more than 20 documentary features in competition, and much more. Filmgoers can even participate in the festival by voting on their favorite films to win an “audience award” in several categories. There are also many programs of short films featuring filmmakers from around the world and around the state. The entire program was handselected by Tallgrass screeners and programmers, who narrowed it down from a field of more than 700 films submitted. So rest up. You’ll need your stamina. You’ll meet lots of other film fans and more than 30 visiting filmmakers who will present their films. You may not know who they are. But you’ll certainly remember their work.

“The traits that yield success in war are at once admirable and appalling. Grant was physically fearless, never worrying about whether the next shell would take his head off. And he had the ability — this is the appalling part — to send thousands of men to their deaths. Lincoln’s other generals couldn’t do it. Grant could. Convinced that preserving the Union would save millions of lives in the future, Grant was willing to sacrifice thousands in the present.” — H.W. Brands, author of “The Man Who Saved the Union: Ulysses Grant in War and Peace.” He will be in Wichita for a reading and book-signing on Oct. 23.

Paris in the 1840s was a revolutionary hotbed of that would define the art world until the mid-20th century.

Roberto Calasso’s erudite study of modernity in 19th-century France features an unlikely hero: the poet Charles Baudelaire. BY ARLICE DAVENPORT The Wichita Eagle

“La Folie Baudelaire” by Roberto Calasso, translated by Alastair McEwen (Farrar, Straus and Giroux, 352 pages, $35)


et us lavish praise where praise is due: Roberto Calasso is the pre-eminent public intellectual of Western Europe, and perhaps the Western world. His extensive writings aim at nothing less than the recovery and reappropriation of the foundations of civilization. And he pursues his aim by reshaping and redirecting our vision toward the often obscure, but profoundly rich, synthesis of art, philosophy, literature and cultural theory that lies at the root of our identities Calasso towers as a colossus (no pun intended) of the ever-shrinking realm of prophetic erudition. Publisher of Adelphi Eidizioni books in Milan, Italy, he reigns as the consummate man of letters, a 21st-century Montaigne. Among his works translated into English, “The Marriage of Cadmus and Harmony” (1993) proves the most remarkable. The recently deceased American writer Gore Vidal called it “a perfect work like no other.” In it, Vidal said, Calasso had re-created “the morning of our world”: the birth of the gods, beauty and transcendence. Now, Calasso turns his formidable intellect to the birth of an era closer to home: the modern. Just as brilliant; just as pervasive in his studies; just as inventive in his narrative structure, Calasso is as at ease on the boulevards of Paris in the 1840s as he was among the Greek gods three millen-

nia before Homer. Always surprising, never predictable, Calasso picks a progenitor of modernity that none of us would suspect. Not Descartes or Galileo, not Poet Charles Cervantes or Baudelaire was Kant, but the the first insightful dandified poet critic of of “Flowers of 19th-century Evil” – Charles French art. Baudelaire, the Parisian enfant terrible, emblem of decadence and damnation to the status quo. Such eccentricity on Calasso’s part allows “La Folie Baudelaire” to shine forth as his most accessible, satisfying book. Indeed, by making Baudelaire the guide through one of the peak eras of art history – the last half of the 19th century – Calasso shows us the stunning freshness and precision of the poet’s vision. Long before any other critic, Baudelaire saw what made modernity tick: Everything material mirrors the spiritual from which it derives. A “magical and supernatural light” stands out against “the natural obscurity of things.” Only by paying attention to the accidental, do we behold the essential. This theory of a kinetic fusion of the metaphysical and the mundane helped explain the power of Eugene Delacroix’s paintings, for instance: their vitality and sensuality, their visual “music,” re-imagining classical forms. Baudelaire developed his radical aesthetic of modernity as a search for a canon of icons in the span of only four years,

NONFICTION recording what he observed in the salons of Paris, rubbing shoulders with the bourgeoisie whom he intended to shock first, and then enlighten. Initially infatuated with Delacroix and Ingres (and not sensitive enough to Manet, in Calasso’s opinion), Baudelaire championed the little known sketch artist Constantine Guys as “the painter of the century.” “Through Guys,” Calasso writes, “Baudelaire glimpsed an impudent, insolent art, which addressed only the ‘daily metamorphosis of external things’ . . . .” Sounding more like a joke than a serious theory, Baudelaire’s fixation on Guys’ journalistic drawings was soon forgotten. This, then, must be the “folie” – or folly – of Calasso’s title. But the term folie in 18th-century France meant a garden pavilion of beauty and delight. Baudelaire’s true folie, Calasso argues, was Paris, cultural capital of the world: “No one had crossed that city so wisely and congenially, like some saturnine guardian; no one had made it breathe in his prose and poetry as Baudelaire had done.” To study Baudelaire’s poetry reveals an unexpected loyalty to classical form. To read his art criticism displays his everacute eye for the electric impulses of the new, of the now, of the fugitive moment. And to read Calasso’s beautiful synthesis of the age in which Baudelaire flourished is to understand the poet as a Virgil to our Dante – exploring the labyrinthine depths of modernity’s cult of endless images. What Baudelaire first beheld was the future: our world today. And we still cannot see that world except through his eyes: birthing the new, always the new, eternally the new. For we moderns, as Calasso elegantly and authoritatively demonstrates, and as Baudelaire foretold: The future is now. Arlice Davenport is Books editor for The Eagle. Reach him at 316-268-6256 or

Pakistan, America’s odd relationship BY GAYLORD DOLD

resources, and is wildly overpopulated. Dozens of ethnic and sectarian groups cluster around an unbalasted central government run largely by the military for the military, a floundering midget sustained mainly by American largesse. And, of course, Pakistan has perhaps a hundred nuclear weapons. America, for its part, has cast its lot with Pakistan’s military, hoping endlessly for support in its war with militant Islam. What country wouldn’t be disillusioned with an ally who allowed Osama Bin Laden to live freely within a few miles of a major military base? The depth of this mutual disillusionment is the subject of Rashid’s book, which is written in a flat, dense naturalistic style that is unlikely to appeal to many reader’s deeper aesthetic feelings. However, each chapter is a kind of history lesson well worth reading, especially among those inclined to wave the flag. Gaylord Dold is a professional writer living in Wichita.

SUNDAY’S PUZZLES BRIDGE/FRANK STEWART "Is that Minnie’s sister?" Cy the Cynic asked me before a club duplicate. "Lotta’s here visiting." "I’m doomed," Cy said gloomily. "She plays like Minnie, only more so." Minnie Bottoms wears old bifocals that make her mix up kings and jacks, often to her opponents’ chagrin. Cy has been Minnie’s chief victim. Cy became declarer at 3NT against the sisters. Lotta Bottoms, East, played the queen on the first club, and Cy took his king and wanted at least eight more tricks. Reluctant to play for a lucky lie in both red suits, he cashed the ace of diamonds – and Minnie played the king! "Here we go again," Cy growled, but then he perked up. He could lead a heart to dummy’s queen. If the finesse won, Cy would let the ten of diamonds ride. He might make two overtricks, and even if Minnie produced the jack, no return – not even the king of hearts – would beat 3NT. If instead East took the king of hearts and led a spade, Cy would win and lead the queen and another diamond. So Cy finessed with the queen of hearts ... and Lotta played the six! The Cynic next led the ten of diamonds, and Minnie took the jack and led a heart. Cy played low from dummy confidently – and was stunned when Lotta took the king. After being convinced that the trick was hers, she led another heart, and dummy’s entry to the diamonds vanished. Down Cy went. "Why didn’t you capture the queen of hearts?" Cy asked pitifully. "With what?" East snapped over her spectacles. "I give up," moaned Cy.

One said, “I’m sort of religious.” I replied that I’m atheist. I don’t think these folks realize what they’re saying. The next time it happens, I plan to respond by asking Zeus to bestow blessings upon them as well. Why do people feel they have a right to force their religious beliefs on customers?

Can we afford to keep attacking the TSA? A news item from last month that failed to get the attention it deserved reports that in the seven-day period ending Sept. 20, Transportation Security Administration agents across America discovered and confiscated no fewer than 47 guns that air passengers had packed into their carry-on luggage. Thirty-eight of those guns were fully loaded, and could have been retrieved from overhead racks to create havoc on a passenger flight, to storm a cockpit or to puncture the plane’s fuselage and bring it down. Thankfully, alert TSA agents spotted the pistols when alarms were set off, or patdowns discovered the weapons. In the year to date, the TSA reports, a total of 1,100 guns


have been found in carry-on luggage that people have attempted to bring aboard passenger airplanes. Apparently, a widespread relaxation of laws preventing Americans from carrying concealed weapons on their person or in their carry-on luggage have led to a sharp increase in the number of people attempting to carry loaded weapons aboard air-

sengers is the uncertainty of not knowing whether a flight will leave as scheduled during a work stoppage, and what happens if it doesn’t. American says it is offering three options if your flight is delayed more than two hours during its labor problems. You can receive a full refund, either of your fare or, if you paid using miles, of your

plane. But so what? It is only the stern actions of our TSA agents that prevented them from doing so, and that also can prevent actual terrorists from bringing weapons onto an airplane. The nature of our security procedures has changed dramatically since the days before Sept. 11, when airport security was in the hands of local, private, profit-seeking entrepreneurs paying minimum wage to the various sluggards who staffed the security belts. It was those people who allowed 19 hijackers to board planes with box cutters, and then fly three of the aircraft they seized into the Twin Towers. I hope that readers will keep this recent concealedguns-at-airports phenomenon

frequent flier miles. It will rebook you on another airline, if there’s room. Or you can change your ticket to a future American flight at no charge, meaning that both your change fee and any fare differential will be waived. The carrier isn’t required to do most of that, at least under federal law. As a matter of policy, most airlines will rebook you on their first flight to your destination on which space is available, at no additional charge, when they cancel a flight.

in mind when they read the various dramatic columns and articles attacking the members of the TSA. Those are the articles, you’ll remember, claiming that TSA agents actually enjoy patting-down the people whose clothing or bodies have set off security alarms. In contrast to the rest of us, who almost always have found TSA agents to be acting properly when they administer a pat-down, the alarmists claim that a huge percentage of the TSA are a species of criminal. This is an accusation that none of them can support. We should be grateful to have a serious, dedicated TSA working hard to prevent terrorists from taking weapons onto a passenger airplane and thus seizing control of it.

Chiefs deal with new quarterback BY ADAM TEICHER Kansas City Star

TAMPA, Fla. — Having gone through three starting quarterbacks last season, the Chiefs should know the routine by now. Something profound happens to a team every time it has to make a change at football’s most important position. That something can be most difficult to quantify, but rest assured that nothing short of the firing of a head coach attracts attention in an NFL locker room quite like a change at quarterback. Even if it’s done for injury reasons, as will be the case for the Chiefs today when Brady Quinn replaces the concussed Matt Cassel against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the move is felt by everyone on the roster.


MES, Iowa — At some point in every football season, a team has an off day. It doesn’t execute perfectly, it commits too many penalties and the coach rides home thinking about everything that went wrong. Saturday was one of those days for Kansas State, but it will be hard for Bill Snyder to stay upset for long. The No. 6 Wildcats, certainly off Check out a photo gallery at their game compared to their 5-0 start, defeated Iowa State 27-21 on Saturday in front of a record crowd of 56,800 at Jack Trice Stadium. “We were able to hang together in a very difficult environment and just get it done when we had to get it done,” senior quarterback Collin Klein said.

Aaron Boogaard lost his brother, an NHL player, in 2011. “…You take it day-by-day and stay tight with family and hold them close,” he said.

As if Aaron Boogaard needed another reminder of his brother’s death. When Boogaard came to Wichita, as a player for Rio Grande Valley, for the Central Hockey League playoffs in April, he was less than a year removed from discovering the dead body of his brother Derek, a New York Rangers enforcer, in a Minneapolis apartment. Ten months before Boogaard’s visit to Wichita, he was arrested on drug charges related to his brother’s death, a case that wasn’t resolved until October, when felony charges were dropped and Boogaard pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge of interfering with the scene of a death.

ASK SPORTS Can the losing teams claim victories for all those wins that Penn State football vacated? When the NCAA handed down its unprecedented sanctions against Penn State football in the wake of the child sex abuse scandal, the Nittany Lions were forced to vacate all 112 wins from 1998 to 2011. That eliminated 111 victories from Joe Paterno’s record, as well as two Big Ten titles. But that didn’t mean Penn State’s collective opponents suddenly inherited 112 victories retroactively. NCAA policies and guidelines state that vacancies “for regular season contests, the wins and ties, but not the losses, of the penalized team are dropped from its overall record.” Meaning that Penn State officially went 0-62 for that 14-year stretch. The guidelines continue to say “the won-lost records for each of the opposing teams are not changed when games are vacated.”

Bob Lutz talks about sports and life blogs.kansas. com/lutz

The only action that changes records for all parties is a forfeit: “To record a forfeit, the wins of the penalized team must be changed to losses, and the losses of its opponents must be changed to wins,” the guidelines say. Vacated wins lead to messy accounting for universities and their sports information directors. Usually two sets of records are kept, with asterisks and notes indicating what the original and modified results were. Southern California football and the previous stops of John Calipari (Memphis and Massachusetts basketball) are some examples. This particular note from the Indiana football media guide does not yet need to be altered. At least not until the Hoosiers have a chance to improve upon it after their Nov. 17 game against Penn State: “Penn State leads series 15-0.” — Joshua Wood

Paul Suellentrop, Wichita State blogs.kansas. com/shock waves

A Williamsport, Pa., minor-league hockey team hopes to be the first to play an entire season of home games outdoors, near where Little League Baseball was started more than 80 years ago. “There are certainly obstacles that we’ll face like weather conditions and maintenance of the facility,” coach Chris Firriolo said. “But I think it will be a really impressive novelty.”

Collins awaits another chance ■

Former Jayhawk guard facing setbacks trying to reach NBA.

BY RUSTIN DODD The Wichita Eagle



On his first night in Turkey, Sherron Collins was jetlagged, dragging. He needed to rest, to quell the nerves from a long flight and all the unknowns that were awaiting him. It was close to 5 in the morning. He couldn’t sleep. And then came the noise. A foreign-sounding voice, loud and cadenced, echoing through the city of Ankara, a large industrial center in the middle of the country. For a moment, Collins was disoriented. He had traveled to this city of more than 4 million to play basketball, to make some money, to kickstart a fledgling career. It was the fall of 2011, and Collins was beginning his second full season of professional basketball. Nearly a year and a half earlier, he’d finished a sterling career at Kansas, finishing as the No. 5 scorer in program history, hugging Bill Self on senior night with tears in his eyes. Three years earlier, he’d etched his name into KU history, dribbling out the clock as the Jayhawks clinched their third NCAA title. Now Collins, 24, had one concern: What was all this noise? “I called my coach,” Collins says. “And was like: ‘Am I all right?’ ” It’s the mosques, his coach assured. They’re calling people to pray. This is Ankara. “So he told me to pray,” Collins says. “So anytime it came on, I just prayed.” As Collins finishes this story, he smiles — that round and luminescent smile you remember from years ago. “The funniest story ever,” he says. ■ ■ ■ It is summertime in Lawrence, and Collins is standing in a hallway adjacent to the KU basketball facility. He is back in town for a few weeks, surrounded by old friends and a support system that answers every call and text. He is talking about the future, about accomplishing dreams and goals that have been put on hold. “The plan is to go somewhere and make some money,” Collins says. “The plan is to get into the NBA.” In the two years since he left Kansas, Collins’ basketball career has been marked by a series of setbacks and delays — some self-inflicted, some bad luck, some out of his hands. At times, his body betrayed him. Other times, it was his own mind. This month, NBA training camps have opened across the country. And Collins was given a momentary opportunity, a non-roster invitation to the San Antonio Spurs’ camp. Five days later, Collins was waived. Back he went to the pro basketball wilderness, where he’ll have to find another path back. “I still think he can do it, “ says former teammate Tyshawn Taylor, who spent two years at Kansas looking up to Collins. “I’ve seen him be out of shape and score 30 points in a game. He can do it. It’s just about wanting to and having that drive and hunger that he used to have. “I haven’t talked to him much, but I don’t know if he’s still got it like he used to.” ■ ■ ■ Collins sits inside a sporting goods store on a Saturday afternoon. It’s late summer, Kellis Robinett, Kansas State blogs.kansas. com/kstated

“It gets to me a little bit when I see dudes (in the NBA) that couldn’t guard me if they tried to,” Collins concedes. Says Taylor: “I know Sherron, and he busted his (rear) to get to the NBA; we all do. And I know where he comes from; I know his family. So to see him get to where he’s busted his, and it’s just not worked out, it’s just a sucky feeling, man.” One way or another, Collins will likely make money somewhere this season. Could be in Europe, where other former Jayhawks, including Aaron Miles and Keith Langford, have flourished and carved out lucrative careers. Another former teammate, Russell Robinson, has signed to play with the Italian club Angelico Pallacanestro Biella. “There’s opportunities to make big money there,” Robinson said in the summer. “And I think that I’m gonna pursue that as much as I can. “You factor in lifestyle, you Chuck Burton/Associated Press factor in that (you’re) actually playing … It’s about living life Sherron Collins, in 2010 while a member of the Charlotte and being happy with yourBobcats, is trying to find his way back to the NBA after self.” being released by the Spurs early in training camp.

Wichita State women working on better board production


t first glance, rebounding doesn’t appear to be a big problem for Wichita State’s women’s basketball team. Unless that glance includes a look at last season’s losses at Creighton and Missouri State, the story is incomplete. Coach Jody Adams remembers those games painfully well as the difference between a championship and third place. “Rebounding is a huge key for us,” she said. “We’re making some changes in our defense that should help our rebounding.” WSU (20-13, 12-6 Missouri Valley Conference) didn’t get kicked around on the backboards on a regular basis. It ranked fifth in the MVC in rebound margin (plus-0.1) and second in defensive rebounds (34.7). However, when the Shockers lost on the backboards, they often lost big. In a 61-59 loss at Creighton, the Bluejays out-rebounded the Shockers 47-22 and grabbed 20 offensive rebounds. Missouri State, in an 85-67 win, grabbed 23 offensive rebounds and outrebounded WSU 48-23. “In every drills, it’s been a point of emphasis, whether it’s a rebounding drill or not,” guard Jessica Diamond said.

indications are good, thanks largely to the play of Matheus Pereira and Alvaro Gutierrez. Playing as a combo for the first time, they advanced to the third round of the ITA All-American Championships and are 6-1 this fall. Gutierrez is a transfer from Oral Roberts. “Alvaro’s been the real surprise package,” WSU assistant coach Matt Hogan said. “He’s “We already hold teams below come straight in under Mat’s their scoring average.

Wichita State’s Aliphine Tuliamuk-Bolton won the women’s 6-kilometer race at Pre-Nationals Cross Country Meet, defeating a top-quality field for her fourth win this fall. Tuliamuk-Bolton finished in a time of 19 minutes, 43.90 seconds, beating second-place Risper Kimaiyo of Texas-El Paso (19:46). Oregon’s Jordan Hasay, the 2011 NCAA runner-up, finished fifth with a time of 20:03.4. The field

included No. 1 Florida State, No. 4 Oregon, No. 6 Georgetown and No. 8 Michigan. WSU’s women finished 21st in the 38-team field. Kansas State finished 27th. Florida State won the women’s event, with Oregon second. WSU’s Kaitlyn McLeod (21:44.4) finished 117th with Samantha Shukla (21:51.1) 135th and Elida Bailon (21:55.2) 142nd. Kansas State’s Laura Galvan (20:52.6) led the Wildcats and finished 36th. Tulaimuk-Bolton, who fin-

Racing and manufacturer Toyota, a partnership that’s working out far better than expected. “Who thought in a million years I’d walk into the situation I’ve walked into?” he asked in Victory Lane. The race was the first since 1979 without an Earnhardt as Dale Earnhardt Jr. sat out with a concussion. The announcement was made Thursday after Earnhardt sought medical attention for a lingering headache from the 25-car accident Sunday at Talladega. His doctor said he’d also sustained a concussion in an Aug. 29 crash at Kansas. Regan Smith got the start for Earnhardt, but it was short-lived. The engine in the No. 88 Chevrolet failed during the first third of the race, sending Smith to the garage for the night. Smith is scheduled to be back in the car next week at Kansas, which has two open days of testing and gives Smith more time to get acclimated with the Hendrick Motorsports crew. “It’s a good team, it’s a good car and everybody at Hendrick Motorsports does a great job,” Smith said. “I’m looking forward to next week. I’m getting comfortable with the cars, comfortable with the equipment. Should be fun to go to Kansas.” Kurt Busch, who was hired to replace Smith at Furniture Row Racing next season, got a jump on that job early by taking over the job this week and finished 21st in his debut race.

Solomon’s Shocker remembered — Solomon High, about 15 miles northeast of Salina, re-dedicated its football field to former WSU football player Marvin Brown on Friday. Brown, along with 13 teammates and 17 others, died in a plane crash in 1970 in Colorado on their way to a game at Utah State. He was a sophomore running back. Friday’s ceremony served as a reminder of Brown’s legacy, initiated by the school’s booster club, Brad Homman told the Salina Journal. "We were sitting around the dinner table with my kids, and they had no idea why it was named after (the former Shocker)," he told the newspaper. Brown earned all-league honors three times and allstate honors twice at Solomon, playing quarterback and running back. He ran for 1,069 yards in seven games as a senior. He earned all-league honors twice in basketball and holds school records in the shot put (54 feet, 10 inch-

BASKETBALL For years, the Minnesota Lynx were irrelevant in the WNBA, a listless franchise that couldn’t figure out a way to even make the playoffs let alone contend for a title. Now they’re looking for two straight championships. The Lynx host the Indiana Fever in Game 1 of the WNBA Finals on Sunday, hoping to become the first repeat winners since the Los Angeles Sparks in 2001-02. It’s been a startling climb for a team that made the playoffs just twice in its first 12 years. But starting with the hire of coach Cheryl Reeve and the trade for hometown star Lindsay Whalen in 2010 and going right on through with the acquisitions of Rebekkah Brunson and Taj McWilliams-Franklin and drafting Maya Moore, the Lynx are suddenly the class of the league. “When I was hired I knew we had a group here that there would be a window of opportunity,” Reeve said. “Once we made the trade for Whalen and we got Rebekkah Brunson in here, we knew we had a foundation. We added to that Maya Moore and Taj, so now there’s that window of opportunity.”

They are bringing more confidence in everything they do – passing, serving, hitting, setting.” Blocking has been vital with junior middle Katie Kretchmar (5-foot-11), senior right side Miranda Leibold (5-10) and senior middle Meg Huelskamp (middle).

Kill suffers seizure after loss to Northwestern and resting comfortably, according to a news release issued by the school about MINNEAPOLIS — Minnesota two hours after the game. University officials “do not football coach Jerry Kill’s anticipate further information seizure problems returned on coach Kill’s condition Saturday, hospitalizing the being available Saturday coach shortly after he gave night, but are hopeful about his postgame press conference following a 21-13 loss to being able to provide an update on Sunday,” the reNorthwestern. lease said. Kill, a Cheney native, met It was still too early to tell with the media and answered if Kill would be available to questions for about 10 mincoach next week at Wisconutes after the game, looking sin, but the hard-nosed coach healthy and strong. But mohas taken pride in not letting ments after returning to the his condition keep him off the locker room, school officials sideline in the past. said he had another seizure. It’s latest in a long line of Team medical staff attendproblems with seizures for ed to him immediately, and an ambulance arrived at TCF Kill. He suffered several of them last season in his first Bank Stadium quickly after the seizure. Kill was taken to year at Minnesota, most notaa hospital, where he was alert bly on the sideline during a BY JON KRAWCZYNSKI Associated Press

loss to New Mexico State in September. Kill returned in time to coach the next game and Gophers doctors said they would concentrate on keeping him hydrated and monitoring his medications to keep a handle on the issue. During a one-week period later in September last year, Kill estimated he had 10 to 20 more and went to the Mayo Clinic in Rochester to seek treatment. Doctors were able to get him on a program that had been successful at keeping the seizures at bay. Kill also had seizures on game day in 2001 and 2005, the latter occurring afterward in his office, while he was coaching Southern Illinois and had another while taping a show in 2006 and beat kidney cancer earlier in his

coaching career. “When you have a situation where you go down and go unconscious, there’s not a whole lot you can do about it,” Kill said last year, “until you come conscious, then you get up and go to practice.” He didn’t miss any games for the Gophers because of seizures last season and appeared to be doing just fine through the first six games this year until Saturday. “The reality of this disorder is this is a common problem,” Dr. Pat Smith said, the university’s physician, said last year. “People live normal lifestyles with this.” Of course, being a college football coach in the Big Ten is hardly a normal lifestyle. The long hours, high stress and poor diet that can be

associated with the job may be contributing to Kill’s problem, doctors have said. That hasn’t stopped Kill in the past from getting right back out there. “What the hell am I supposed to do? Stop? I mean, sit in the chair and wait for the next dang seizure to come along?” Kill said last year. It’s the latest bit of adversity for the Gophers, who started the season 4-0 to generate optimism among the program’s long-suffering fans that a bowl game could be had. But they were thumped 31-13 at Iowa in the Big Ten opener, then delivered a sloppy and mistake-filled performance in the loss to the Wildcats on Saturday to fall to 0-2 in the conference.

helped earn him a big contract from the Mets. And he watched a climactic called third strike in 2006 as the Cardinals eliminated his Mets. Beltran got off to an exceptional start with the Cardinals, then went into a big slide, hitting just better than .200 from late June through early September. “He did have a rough go, maybe one of the roughest he’s ever had in his career. It was tough navigating through that, trying to figure out how to get him right and how to set him up to be successful again,” manager Mike Matheny said, adding that some rest and Beltran’s own professionalism turned him back around. The 35-year-old now looks rejuvenated at the plate and in rightfield. “He has been a joy to have on our team in every regard,” the manager said, “somebody who is very well respected, not just on our team, but leaguewide.” Just maybe not in San Francisco on Sunday night and Monday. Beltran said, “I don’t care about being booed in these types of games.”

Nationals deal with playoff meltdown BY HOWARD FENDRICH Associated Press

WASHINGTON — For their first seven years, filled with on-field losses and off-field gaffes, the Washington Nationals merely existed, barely mattered. That’s why so much that happened in 2012 felt new and significant to them. All the regular-season wins — a best-inbaseball 98 — and the NL East title, the postseason highs and lows, the intense attention to the decision to shut down Stephen Strasburg in September. And when it ended, in as difficult-to-digest a way as possible, the soft voices in the quiet Nationals clubhouse kept repeating the same word in the wee hours of Saturday, saying they would “learn” from what happened. Learn from what for nearly every member of a young roster was a debut trip to the playoffs. Learn from a 9-7 loss to the defending World Series champion St. Louis Cardinals in Game 5 of their NL division series — a game Washington led 6-0 early, then 7-5 with two outs in the ninth inning. So close, yet so far. No team in baseball history had blown a lead of more than four runs en route losing a winnertake-all postseason game. Manager Davey Johnson: “We proved our worth and we just need to let this be a lesson and … learn from it, have more resolve, come back and carry it a lot farther.” Closer Drew Storen, who five times threw a pitch while one strike from a victory but each was called a ball: “It’s the best job when you’re good at it. It’s the worst job when you fail. Just

burg and Gio Gonzalez, plus Jordan Zimmermann, in the rotation, and Bryce Harper, Jayson Werth, Ryan Zimmerman and Ian Desmond in the everyday lineup, the Nationals like the way they’ve set themselves up. “Somebody once said to me, `When you look back at years of losing, you just smile, because when it gets to the winning, it’s awful sweet.’ I think we’ve reached that stage,” said Mark Lerner, son of Nationals principal owner Ted Lerner, “and we’ll be good for a long, long time to come.” That very well may be. In the interim, though, there are a string of questions facing the Nationals as they head into the offseason: ■ How will Strasburg react to Alex Brandon/Associated Press the way his season ended and Washington Nationals relief pitcher Drew Storen (22) speaks what kind of numbers can he produce with no restrictions at with catcher Kurt Suzuki, left, and pitching coach Steve all?

Sometimes such change is for the better, and other times it’s not — and often that outcome is determined by factors other than how the new quarterback plays. “The dynamics of a team can change significantly when there’s a change at quarterback,” said former Chiefs quarterback Rich Gannon, who should know. He was the on-again, offagain starter during his four seasons with the Chiefs in the 1990s. “Usually, how it goes depends on the player. Brady Quinn has to feel this is his football team now, and that he has to do everything he can to win. He can’t go in there timid or be worried about walking on egg shells around Matt Cassel. He has to go in there and take over like it’s his team now. That’s how he has to approach it. The practice reps are his now. He has to take control of that huddle.” Not just the huddle, but the locker room. Because of the nature of the position, the quarterback is always the guy others look to — in good times and bad. That may hold even more true for the Chiefs this year. They don’t have a lot of older veterans — no one on their roster is over 30 — and they have no obvious leaders in their locker room, though tackle Eric Winston filled the void last weekend when he defended Cassel while criticizing those Chiefs fans who cheered after their fallen quarterback’s head injury. “The team, they’ve been working with Cassel for a little bit and they know his mannerisms and what he’s about,” Chiefs coach Romeo Crennel said. “Now they have to find out what Brady is about as far as it relates to that. “Brady’s always been a good leader. You can’t be a quarterback without being a good leader. If you look back to his days in college, he was a good leader. The days he’s been in the pros, he’s been a good leader. He carries himself very well. He has a certain aura about him in the way he conducts himself.” Winston went through a quarterback change twice last season when he played for Houston. The Texans lost starter Matt Schaub, and soon afterward his backup, Matt Leinart. The left them with only a rookie, T.J. Yates, for whom the Texans felt obligated to play well. And play well they did, reaching the playoffs for the first time in franchise history. “You know when your starter goes down, you’re on your backup and there’s not much else,” Winston said. “Fortunately, I think (backup Ricky) Stanzi is a capable guy, but we do realize we can’t get too much deeper on the depth chart. That’s a dangerous place to be. So the heat kind of comes up, especially (for) the offensive line. We know that.” The Chiefs, who last year cycled through Cassel, then Tyler Palko, and then Kyle Orton at quarterback, tried late last week to make the change as seamless as possible. Teams are devoted to their routines anyway during the season, so the Chiefs went through a work schedule that was nearly identical

to the one they followed the previous week. They just did it with a different player running their offense. “(Quinn is) always in the meetings, and always learning, so I don’t think much changes,” said wide receiver Steve Breaston, shrugging off the change as a minimal one. “I know he knows what to do when he gets out there.” Perhaps, but it’s not that simple. The Chiefs, for instance, moved rookie offensive lineman Jeff Allen into their starting lineup earlier in the season because of an injury. Allen has played well enough to hold up his end of the bargain. Because he has, it’s entirely possible that some of his teammates are unaware he’s in their lineup now. Not so for Quinn. Quarterback is too conspicuous of a position. Instead, all eyes in the Chiefs’ locker room will be on him today to see how he handles himself. One mistake by a guy like Allen can lead to a sack. One mistake by Quinn, who hasn’t played in a regular-season game since December 2009, could cost the Chiefs a game. “I had to do that a couple of times,” said Gannon, who will help call today’s game on TV as an analyst for CBS. “It’s difficult because you haven’t played in a long time. There’s a throw here that’s off or a throw there that’s off. You’re a little late with your footwork. Things happen a lot quicker than in practice. Brady hasn’t played in a long time. It’s been three years. “So the Chiefs have to make sure he’s real comfortable. They’ve got to let him know he doesn’t have to make every play, that throwing the ball away once in awhile is OK.” One advantage Quinn might have is that his promotion into the lineup wasn’t by Crennel’s choice, but because he was forced to make the change. Cassel was ruled medically unable to play, and Quinn was simply the next in line. “It’s a lot better situation when there’s an injury involved,” Gannon said. “If there’s a change because of poor performance, then you’ve got a legitimate quarterback controversy. It’s a lot different if a guy gets hurt. Then the team is much more willing to rally around the other guy and not take sides and support the new guy.” NFL suspends Talib for four games —Tampa Bay Buccaneers cornerback and former Kansas star Aqib Talib has been suspended four games for violating the NFL’s policy on performanceenhancing substances. The fifth-year pro said in a statement released by the team that he took an Adderall pill without a prescription “around the beginning of training camp.” He will not appeal the ban, which begins Sunday against the Kansas City Chiefs. Talib also will miss games against New Orleans, Minnesota and Oakland. He will be eligible to return to the active roster on Nov. 5, the day after Tampa Bay faces the Raiders. The Bucs announced Saturday that Talib was being placed on the reserve/suspended list. Defensive end Markus White was promoted from the practice fill the roster opening.

Jets’ plan on how to use Tebow remains mystery BY BEN SHPIGEL New York Times

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. — Even now, it is all very puzzling, this Tim Tebow thing. He was billed as a short-yardage force, but more than half of his offensive plays have come on first-and-10. Sometimes the New York Jets deploy him in the red zone, but usually they do not. He lines up at quarterback, at receiver, at running back, at fullback, performing admirably, doing what he is asked, which is not all that much. Barely a quarter of their season has elapsed, but the Jets have reached a stage where small samples no longer exist. Tendencies have surfaced. Patterns have developed. Five games into this experiment, Tebow’s role is no less nebulous than it was back at training camp at State University of New York College at Cortland. At least then, a certain intrigue existed, an anticipation that the Jets

CHIEFS AT BUCS Time: Noon Line: TB by 3 1⁄2 Pick: TB 24-20 Easy choice for the Dog of the Week panel, which hailed this game the worst of the week with a bang of a gavel then repaired to the Quill & Swill to drink lunch. Chiefs played Ravens tough in a 9-6 loss last week but lose QB Matt Cassel to a concussion. Some KC fans cheered Cassel’s injury — but only because they hadn’t seen Brady Quinn play. Both team’s propensity to ineptness makes this a nervous call either way.

New York Jets quarterback Tim Tebow reacts after carrying the ball against the Houston Texans last week at Giants Stadium. were concocting plays to integrate Tebow so ingenious, so creative that they could have been hung on the refrigerator. That suspense has dissolved. In its place is bewilderment. Even as the Jets’ offense has

sputtered, Tebow has been used sparingly, far from emerging as the “major contributor” that coach Rex Ryan told the NFL Network he would be back in March. In that interview, Ryan said

RAIDERS AT FALCONS BENGALS AT BROWNS Time: Noon Line: ATL by 9 Pick: ATL 34-16 Here is one of the NFL’s two unbeaten teams, and it’s hard to imagine the Falcons not staying that way in this one. Atlanta is 27-0 when Matt Ryan has a 100 passer rating, and Ryan should go happy-statsnuts against an Oaks pass-D allowing a 71.5 completion percentage. Also, Birds have won six in a row at home, and Pirates are 0-2 on road by a combined 72-19 score.

Time: Noon Line: CIN by 1 Pick: CLE 24-21 Ohio is too close to call with Obama-Romney, and apparently with Bengals-Browns, too. Near pick ’em game finds Earthtones with a big shot to get off the winless schneid in the Pound, especially with top CB Joe Haden back from suspension and a good bet to neutralize A.J. Green. Cincy has won 13 of past 16 in this rivalry including 34-27 in September, but every Dawg has its day. Upset!

Tebow could appear in as many as 20 snaps in a game. Not including special teams, Tebow has participated in 39 offensive plays all season, according to game charting by statistical website ProFootballFocus, including seven in each of the last two weeks. Of those 39 plays, 25 have come at quarterback, and only once — in Week 2 in Pittsburgh — has Tebow played three consecutive snaps. When asked about his limited chances, Tebow dips into his stash of diplomatic responses — everything is a blessing, I’m excited for the opportunity, you do the best job that you can — that apply to another delicate (and related) subject, his satisfaction with backing up the shaky Mark Sanchez. If Tebow is at all frustrated, which would not be an unreasonable reaction, he does not show it. But even if the Jets were considering a change at quarterback, it would seem difficult for them to gauge Tebow’s readiness.

He has run the ball 12 times, gaining 49 yards, and twice more on fake punts, converting both. He has dropped back three times, absorbing one sack, throwing one incompletion (on a long pass Monday night that was dropped by Jason Hill) and connecting on a 9-yard pass (in Week 4 against San Francisco) that, oddly enough, came on his lone appearance on a play defined as third-and-short — the type of situation that would seem his specialty. The only other area in which Tebow theoretically could be just as effective, if not more so, is inside the opponents’ 20-yard line. Of the Jets’ 38 offensive plays inside the red zone, Tebow has appeared in eight, touching the ball six times. Those plays, which included a 5-yard sack in Miami, gained a total of 13 yards. All of the training-camp hypotheticals posed to Sanchez — as in, could you handle ceding touchdown glory to Tebow after leading the offense

75 yards — have been rendered moot. It all creates a perception that the Jets are reluctant to use Tebow, which, given their stagnant running game, seems a bit foolish and a rather elaborate ruse. Or, that they have yet to figure out how to use him, as much of a challenge as it seemed when the Jets traded for him seven months ago. From a football standpoint, Tebow appealed to the Jets much as Tom Tupa, a former quarterback turned punter, did to Bill Parcells in 1999. To Parcells, Tupa counted as two players on game days, such was his versatility. In Tebow, the Jets had gained a defensive coordinator’s nightmare, a special-teams asset and a backup quarterback — one with a specialized, personalized bundle of plays — all for the low, low price of $2 million. Based on those criteria, Tebow has benefited the Jets. But have the Jets backed up their stated plan for him?






Time: Noon Line: MIA by 3 1⁄2 Pick: MIA 19-13 The Rams’ best offensive weapon, Steven Jackson, won’t do much against Miami’s tough run defense, and QB Sam Bradford will be missing his top target in injured Danny Amendola. Rookie Ryan Tannehill will need a quick release and a big ground game from Reggie Bush. Bush announced that his girlfriend is expecting. So am I. I’m expecting a big afternoon from Reggie, who has 436 yards in his past four home games.

Time: Noon Line: NYJ by 3 1⁄2 Pick: NYJ 23-20 Struggling Jets offense is sticking with QB Mark Sanchez for now. Could it be because the alternative is Tim Tebow? Going from Sanchez to Tebow is like wanting a safer neighborhood and moving from Beirut to Fallujah. Andrew Luck and rejuvenated Reggie Wayne are coming off a big upset of Packers, but Planes are too desperate for something good to happen to not find a way at home.

Time: Noon Line: PHI by 4 Pick: PHI 27-24 Lions have lost six in a row in the series since last beating Philly in 1986. And Motown is on a 1-6 skid on the road, allowing 36.6 points per game in the process. Nevertheless, I’d still play this one closer than the bet line. Birds and Mike Vick are error-prone, while disappointing Detroit is desperate and off a bye, and Calvin Johnson has 716 catch yards in past four roadies.

Time: Noon on KSAS, Ch. 4 Line: BAL by 3 1⁄2 Pick: BAL 24-19 This one got a brief whiff from the Game of the Week panel. Dallas coming in off a bye and Crows off their game last week, barely beating KC, has a leveling effect here. An outright upset would not stun me, but I still like Crabbies in a venue call. Baltimore has won 13 consecutive regularseason homies, and I see a bounce-back game from Joe Flacco, Ray Rice and that crowd.

Time: 3:05 p.m. Line: ARI by 4 1⁄2 Pick: ARI 24-10 Buffalo’s defense has allowed 1,201 yards the past two games — most by any team over a two-game stretch since 1950. That same defense has been outscored 52-7 in the past two fourth quarters, indication of a team quitting. Did I mention the Buffs’ offense also is struggling? Chan Gailey could be the first coach fired. On the other side, ’Zona has won eight in a row at home.

WEEK 7 PATRIOTS AT SEAHAWKS Time: 3:05 p.m. Line: NE by 3 1⁄2 Pick: NE 27-23 Another legit Game of the Week nominee, with Patriots putting that big, great offense up against a Seahawks defense that is terrific. Seattle also is a different (better) team at home. Upset watch here, but I can’t not like a Pats attack that has Tom Brady AND averages 165 yards on the ground. By the way, anybody remember that Pete Carroll was Pats’ coach from 1997-99? (Anybody care?)




Time: 3:25 p.m. Line: SF by 5 Pick: SF 31-27 Game of the Week committee looked hard at Green Bay-Houston for Week 6, too, but how can you turn down a grudge rematch of last season’s NFC Championship Game? (You can’t.) San Fran wants this one. Badly. Both teams have explosive offenses, but even NYG’s can’t match the balance of a 49ers squad that last week became first team ever with 300 yards passing AND rushing in the same game.

Time: 3:25 p.m. on KSAS Line: Off Pick: WAS 21-20 This stayed off betting boards late into week because of QB Robert Griffin III leaving last week’s game with a mild concussion. He has been cleared to play and likely will, and this pick assumes he’ll do just that. Think Vikes would have been a small favorite, but I see Minny due a road stumble, and Skins are way beyond due to end that eight-game home losing streak.

Time: 7:20 p.m. on KSNW, Ch. 3 Line: HOU by 3 1⁄2 Pick: GB 28-27 “AAAWWWK!” bleats the Upset Bird, gliding over the neighborhood tipsy on Old Milwaukee and wearing a cheesehead hat. Two big offenses led by Aaron Rodgers and Arian Foster. And two exciting defenses led by Clay Matthews and J.J. Watt. (Houston will miss injured LB Brain Cushing, though.) Green Bay’s D will have its hands full; then again, Matt Schaub has not yet faced a pass rush like the Pack’s.

BRONCOS AT CHARGERS Time: 7:30 p.m. Monday on ESPN, Ch. 32 Line: SD by 1 1⁄2 Pick: SD 34-30 A bit of Game of the Week heft from this one, too, what with the division battle, the Monday stage and the prospect of a shootout. Peyton Manning is 11-4 on MNF and Philip Rivers 7-3. Denver has won two of past three in Diego, but as a Colt this was a nemesis opponent for Manning — 1-5 personal run vs. Bolts with 15 picks. — Greg Cote, Miami Herald

Martens’ return gives defense stability same time he takes his hockey seriously and he expects his players to work hard. Anytime you can have a coach like that, it makes playing the game a lot more fun."

BY JEFFREY LUTZ The Wichita Eagle

The Thunder’s Matt Summers, left, returns after a strong 2011-12 season.

McClelland likes Thunder’s nucleus


ou know, NHL players, I’ll bet there are a lot of guys skating around with busted heads and missing teeth who would love to replace you. Guys who have spent years in the bushes of minor-league hockey dreaming of a chance that they know, in the backs of their minds, will never come. Players who love the sport every bit as much as you, but have yet to bitten by the greed that permeates the sport at its highest level. And while the NHL is locked down and dark, the players who ride in buses to towns they’ve never heard of to play a game they love will be doing what they always do. In an American sports culture drained emotionally by work stoppages, the NHL threatens its very existence by careening toward another missed season. “It’s tough on both sides,’’ said Wichita Thunder coach Kevin McClelland, who played 588 games in the NHL from 1981-94. “It’s a shame that they’re not playing right now. Being a Canadian and growing up watching “Hockey Night in Canada” every Saturday night, I’m just wishing that they finally get together and get an agreement and get back to playing again.’’ McClelland, though, doesn’t have much time to wring his hands about the NHL’s situation. He’s been busy since the Thunder lost to Fort Wayne in the Central Hockey League championship series in the spring trying to put together a team that can go all the way. Thanks to the NHL lockout, though, it’s been dicey. McClelland has an evolving roster with which to work as his team prepares for its season-opener Friday night at Intrust Bank Arena. Eligible NHL players, he said, will try to stay sharp by playing in the American Hockey League, the highest form of U.S. minor-league hockey. That means some AHL players will be pushed down to the East Coast Hockey League, and some ECHL players will be pushed to the CHL. “I’m still getting probably 20 to 30 calls a day and probably 30 e-mails a day,’’ McClelland said. “It’s confusing. I want to be loyal to these guys that I signed during the summer and I think that’s the way we’re going to go. But in the same breath, you can’t really pass on a good player who could come in and help your hockey club.’’


Even a guy like Alex Bourret, the Thunder’s most dynamic offensive player last season who signed with the Cincinnati Cyclones in the ECHL in August, could be available. “He just got let go and he’s without a job now,’’ McClelland said. “But again, some of those guys we had last year have kind of moved on and as a coach I’ve kind of moved on, too. Maybe in a few days, you might see Alex here, you might not. I’m not a knee-jerk reaction guy; I’m going to see what I’ve got here first.’’ What McClelland has is nine returning players who were keys to the Thunder’s success last season. They include three of the team’s top seven scorers: Matt Summers, RG Flath and Jarred Mohr as well as key defenders Travis Wright, Kevin Young and Andrew Martens, who played in 33 games last season. McClelland knows Thunder fans are used to a highflying, high-octane offensive style of player, one that typically helps the most offensive-minded of his players move on to higher levels of hockey. That’s OK, he’s not changing. “I know our guys benefit from the way we play,’’ McClelland said. “But I don’t want to be a selfish coach who puts in a style where you can’t put up points and can’t get to the next level. You know it’s going to happen every year so you’re always looking to bring new guys in. That’s just the way it is at this level of hockey.’’ McClelland thinks newcomers Chad Painchaud, who played last season with the ECHL’s Chicago Express, and Ian Lowe, another ECHL player who was with Idaho in 2011-12, will help ignite the Thunder’s offense. “And we have enough of our nucleus back that they’re going to show some of these new guys what to expect,’’ McClelland said. “It’s very demanding here and the goal is to produce a good hockey club for our fans.’’ McClelland, beginning his eighth year as a coach and third with the Thunder, thinks Wichita is a great hockey town and loves being here. He wants to be here a long time. “Me and my family, we thoroughly enjoy it here,’’ he said. “Hopefully I’m going to try and get my green card, or whatever it is, so we can stay here. It’s a great community and quite frankly, you just don’t want to keep moving around all the time.’’ Even in the fickle profession of coaching, McClelland and the Thunder look like a long-term match.

On paper, the Thunder were seemingly more than one player short of beating Fort Wayne in the CHL Finals, a series that ended in five games and with Fort Wayne outscoring Wichita 27-16. The Thunder needed at least one more scorer and a defenseman who could keep up with the Komets playmakers who often skated past Wichita blue-liners to create good scoring chances. Those holes suggest at least a two-player difference, but Andrew Martens may have been able to occupy both roles. "A lot of the returning guys here kind of rag on me a little bit about how I could have made a difference and stuff like that," said Martens, who re-signed with the Thunder for the upcoming season. "Hindsight 20-20, it could have gone either way. It’s a new year and a new opportunity to write a new story." Martens was promoted to the American Hockey League in late December, and though he returned to Wichita the following month, another callup made him unavailable for the CHL postseason. Between promotions, Martens scored 26 points and had a plus-26 rating in 33 games. The previous season, the 31-year old Calgary native scored 54 points with 51 penalty minutes in 65 games. A return to Wichita not only offers Martens a chance to play in a familiar and comfortable environment, but it gives the Thunder a reliable presence on a corps of defensemen that, among returners Jarred Mohr, Travis Wight and Kevin Young, could include multiple newcomers.

Boogaard held himself together after the alleged verbal abuse by fans during the playoffs. He posted on Twitter about fans heckling him about his brother, but posted no real reaction to it. According to Boogaard, only "a couple guys" participated in the heckling, which was denounced by other Thunder fans on message boards following the series. "I would just hear, ‘Your brother, blah, blah, blah,’ and I would see people against the glass pretending to snort (cocaine). Our trainer ... sat down beside me on the bench the whole time anybody would say something. Anytime somebody would pipe up, he’d get in my ear to drown it out." Boogaard said he isn’t holding the actions of a small number of Thunder fans against the rest. ■ ■ ■ The legal fallout from Derek’s death still isn’t complete — the Boogaard family filed a lawsuit against the NHL Players Association last month, seeking $9.8 million in damages and alleging the union was negligent in failing to file a grievance against the Rangers seeking the remaining $5 million on Derek’s contract. The emotional fallout will likely never subside for 26-year-old Aaron Boogaard, but the Thunder offers him a fresh start. Playing for coach Kevin McClelland, Boogaard will have a leader who was also known for fighting. Last season, Boogaard tallied 129 penalty minutes in 56 games. He won’t stop fighting. "It’s just something you know," Boogaard said. "It’s just something you’ve been doing."



JEFFREY LUTZ BREAKS DOWN THE THUNDER The Central Hockey League has no defending champion. Fort Wayne won the championship last season, then bolted for the ECHL. Even though the finals against Wichita were a mismatch, the fact that the Thunder reached the final round makes it, conceivably, the league’s team to beat. The Thunder are rarely in that position. Wichita appeared to be the best team in the regular season for much of 2011-12, when they notched a league-best 44 wins. But that wasn’t necessarily expected after the Thunder was ousted from the postseason in the first round the year before. Uncertainty surrounds a league that lost five teams and added one in Denver, taking the number of teams from 14 to 10. Allen, Missouri and Texas had strong offseasons, and Denver is a threat as an expansion franchise in the league’s largest market. The NHL lockout is also making higher-level players available to the Double-A CHL. But if the Thunder truly is the favorite going into the season, it’s a role with which they’re comfortable. "We can be pinned as the favorite, with Fort Wayne leaving and we were in the finals," Thunder forward Dustin Donaghy said. "The way teams are looking, especially with the lockout, it’s anybody’s game now. But as far as I’m concerned, Wichita is the team to beat this year."

Offense Balance has been the hallmark of Wichita’s scoring attack in Kevin McClelland’s two-plus seasons as coach. Last season, no player scored more than 61 points but 10 players scored at least 30. In McClelland’s first season, seven players scored between 45 and 75 points. The balance doesn’t mean there isn’t room for scoring stars. Aaron Davis, who retired in the offseason, scored 115 points in 113 games in two seasons with Wichita. Matt Robinson, now with Alaska of the ECHL, scored 124 points the last two years and was named to the CHL All-Star team both seasons. Most of the Thunder’s balance from last year, however, is gone. Four of the top five scorers — Davis, Robinson, Thomas Beauregard and Alex Bourret — did not return. Leading scorer Matt Summers is back, but much of his production came from him being a cog in the system rather than its most important piece. Wichita could regain balance or even find a star among a crop of newly signed players. Neil Trimm was an All-Star when he scored 80 points for Laredo in 2010-11. Chad Painchaud has a pair of 60-point seasons in the ECHL. Returning right wing RG Flath had a playoff hat trick and averaged nearly a point last year.

Fernando Salazar/The Wichita Eagle

Jarred Mohr, right, is one of the Thunder’s top returning defenders.

Defense Wichita’s scoring depth often finds contributions from its defensemen. In McClelland’s two seasons, seven Thunder blue-liners have scored 20 or more points, and in 2010-11 Andrew Martens and Kory Scoran combined for 88. Fans clamored for more "stay-at-home" defenders after Wichita’s back end performed poorly in the finals against Fort Wayne, but it appears the Thunder once again has more versatile defensemen than specialized ones. Travis Wight plays almost exclusively near his own net, but Martens, Jarred Mohr, David Inman, Kevin Young and Nathan Lutz could all aid Wichita’s offense. Last season, the Thunder allowed 181 goals, third fewest in the CHL. The low total came from Wichita’s scoring prowess and its ability to control the physical aspects of the game, and it appears McClelland is sticking with that approach.

Goaltending Never during the Thunder’s first 77 games, including the postseason, did it appear that the goalie position needed an upgrade. Then Wichita allowed 27 goals in five finals games to Fort Wayne, and McClelland opted for an overhaul. Adam Russo was traded to Arizona and Bryan Hogan, a rookie who at times outperformed Russo after he was acquired in a midseason trade, was allowed to leave. The Thunder will replace them with two of three men: Kamil Jarina, Torrie Jung and Kevin Regan. Jarina is a 36-year-old native of the Czech Republic who has never played in the United States. Jung, 23, played for Laredo last season where he posted solid numbers for a subpar team. The 28-year-old Regan has spent the last two seasons in Italy. "Anytime there’s more than one goalie out on the ice (in practice), there’s that healthy, competitive atmosphere," Jung said. "Ultimately it’s only going to make us better. Fighting for a spot is going to bring out the best in us."

LUBBOCK, Texas — Put that Heisman talk on hold. A second straight trip to Texas turned out to be too much for Geno Smith and No. 5 West Virginia to handle. Texas Tech’s defense and a swirling wind NO. 5 WVU 14 confounded TEXAS TECH 49 Smith and the Mountaineers’ defense couldn’t stop the Red Raiders in a 49-14 victory Saturday. Smith, who had thrown for 24 touchdowns coming into the game and established himself as the Heisman Trophy front-runner, had only one TD pass against the nation’s top-ranked pass defense. “They rank up there with all of them,” said Smith, who still is without an interception this season. “Everyone’s going to give us their best shot. We’re the offense that everyone’s gunning for. We get all the media attention.” West Virginia coach Dana Holgorsen said Smith was struggling with the wind, which whipped around the stadium at about 20 mph. “Geno let the wind affect him,” said Holgorsen, who coached at Texas Tech with Mike Leach from 2000-2007. “I played

I mean it’s a nuisance but, you know, if you let that be an excuse then it’s going to mess with you and, I think it did.” A week after beating Texas in Austin, and a week before what could have been a match-up of unbeaten in Morgantown, W.Va., with Kansas State, the Mountaineers fell flat in Lubbock. Their awesome offense, couldn’t overcome their bad defense, this time. Seth Doege passed for six touchdowns and a career-high

499 yards. Red Raider fans stormed the field after the win, the most lopsided Texas Tech victory ever over a team ranked in the top five. Tech’s defense consistently stymied West Virginia’s offense. The Mountaineers were averaging 52 points per game, but Smith completed 29 of 55 passes for 275 yards. The Red Raiders offense had no such trouble. Doege threw TD passes of 39, 19, 16, 2, 29 and 7 yards. He completed 32 of 42 passes and

the six touchdowns matched his career-high. Darrin Moore caught three touchdown passes, which matched his career high. Texas Tech (5-1, 2-1) had 18 plays of 15 yards or more, including a 61-yard pass to Jace Amaro and a 53-yard touchdown run by SaDale Foster. Amaro finished with five receptions for 156 yards. The Mountaineers (5-1, 2-1) last week converted all five fourth-down tries in their 48-45 win at Texas, but against the Red Raiders they made just one of six. Doege had one interception, an improvement over the five he’d thrown in the previous two games. “It’s totally different from last year,” Doege said who last season saw the Red Raiders defense finish near the bottom of the nation in several categories then. “If we got down or whatever the case may be, we might have pressed a little bit. But we know that our defense is playing at a high level right now, and I was just blown away by their performance today.” The win for Texas Tech was the second over a top-10 team in as many seasons. The Red Raiders beat No. 3 Oklahoma 41-38 to break the Sooners’ 39-game win streak in Norman. On seven first-half possessions, the Red Raiders scored touch-

downs on five. Texas Tech wasn’t as efficient in the second half but by then they were so far ahead it didn’t matter. The Mountaineers got just one touchdown in the second half and that came when the game was already out of reach. The Red Raiders started fast and kept the Mountaineers off balance. They got 168 rushing yards on 29 carries and passed the ball 43 times. West Virginia Texas Tech

Northwest Missouri knocks off No. 1 Pitt State BY TODD ENGLE Kansas City Star correspondent

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Northwest Missouri State’s chances against archrival and topranked PittsNO. 1 PITT ST. 21 burg State NO. 7 NW MO. 31 hinged on two fourth downs Saturday at Arrowhead Stadium. The Bearcat defense had to stop Pitt State on 4th-and-1 to keep the lead in reach. It did. The offense needed to convert a 4th-and-4 to take the lead. It did. Those conversions were the catalyst to Northwest’s 31-21 victory in the 11th annual Fall Classic. The No. 7 Bearcats (6-1 overall, 5-1 MIAA) didn’t look back after Trevor Adams hooked up with John Hinchey for a 29-yard touchdown on fourth down for a 17-14 lead with 10:18 to play. “It was a concept we had run a few times and really had pretty good success with.

It was a stark contrast to the first half, where the Bearcats mustered only 97 yards of offense. They finished with 355. Northwest’s rally was started with its defense, which stuffed No. 1 Pitt State (5-1, 5-1) on 4th-and-1 from its own 17-yard line.

“At the time we were up by four, and at the time I felt like we needed to go get this first down and go down and score,” Pitt State coach Tim Beck said. “If you don’t get the first down it’s like, ‘Well, crap, we should’ve kicked the field goal.’ But you’ve got to make a decision and go with it. At the time I felt it was important we go for it.” Northwest took charge after that, scoring 31 straight points to put the game away. “Our game plan was, and we talked about it all week, we were going to have to change the momentum of this game,” Northwest coach Adam Dorrel said. “And the kids did that. That was the neat thing for me.” Kickoff was delayed 51 minutes by inclement weather. Another 30-minute delay followed less than five minutes into the game. Defense ruled through most of the first half before Pitt State broke though with a 13-yard touchdown pass to John Brown with 5:04 to go in the second quarter.

The Gorillas extended their lead to 14-0 in the third quarter with an explosive 87-yard drive on their opening possession. That was the last time the offense looked that efficient. Northwest answered immediately with a touchdown pass, and added a field goal to get within 14-10. It was all Bearcats after that. “You’ve got to give Northwest Missouri a ton of credit. They played extremely hard and when momentum shifted their way, we couldn’t get it stopped,” Beck said. Pittsburg State 0 NW Missouri State 0

Notre Dame stops Stanford


Associated Press

SOUTH BEND, Ind. — Notre Dame knew what was coming. Stanford doesn’t get cute inches from the goal line. And after three years of getting pushed around by the 13 Cardinal, the Fighting STANFORD NOTRE DAME 20 Irish pushed back, winning the most important shoving match they’ve had all season. Or did they? A wall of Notre Dame defenders stopped Stepfan Taylor inches from the goal line on fourth down in overtime and the seventh-ranked Irish remained unbeaten with a 20-13 victory against the No. 17 Cardinal on a soggy Saturday. Taylor kept reaching and turning with bodies underneath him, and his knee never did hit the ground before reaching the ball across the goal line. But the officials ruled it was too late. The whistle had blown, and that meant the play was stopped. Taylor finished with 102 yards on 28 carries. He needed 103. The celebration had to wait for a replay review. The call stood. Irish fans who weren’t already on the field spilled out of the stands, and Notre Dame’s national title hopes remained alive. The Irish are 6-0 for the first time since 2002. “Physically, we controlled the line of scrimmage,” Irish coach Brian Kelly said of the last play. “Classic. Classic goal-line stand.” Stanford coach David Shaw wasn’t so sure. “I didn’t get a view of the last play,” Shaw said. “Stepfan swore to me that

No. 1 Alabama 42, Missouri 10 — Eddie Lacy and T.J. Yeldon gave Alabama a pair of 100-yard rushers in the same game for the first time this season and the duo combined for five scores in a soggy, weather-delayed victory at Mizzou. The Tide led 21-0 late in the first quarter en route to their 10th straight victory, all by 19 or more points. The Tigers (3-4, 0-4) have been outscored 126-55 in their first season in the SEC, and have been competitive to the finish in only last week’s 19-15 loss at home to Vanderbilt No. 4 Florida 31, Vanderbilt 17 — Visiting Florida got 177 rushing yards from QB Jeff Driskel — topping Tim Tebow’s QB record by 11. Driskel had three touchdowns as the Gators set up a showdown with No. 3 South Carolina. The quarterback threw for only 77 yards and ran only 11 times. No. 8 Ohio State 52, Indiana 49 — Braxton Miller scored on a 67-yard touchdown run, threw TD passes of 60 and 46 yards and produced his third straight 100-yard rushing game as the Buckeyes escaped Bloomington. Indiana (2-4, 0-3) has lost 21 straight conference games to teams from outside the state and 18 straight to the Buckeyes since 1988, though the Hoosiers rallied to within a field goal late. No. 11 USC 24, Washington 14 — Anthony Brown blocked a punt and returned it 21 yards for a touchdown in visiting USC’s win. Silas Redd rushed for 108 yards and a touchdown in the first half and Matt Barkley added an 18-yard TD pass to Xavier Grimble.

That he got over the goal line on the second effort. The officials looked at it and said he didn’t get in, so he didn’t get in.” TJ Jones made a reaching 7-yard touchdown catch from Tommy Rees on the first overtime possession to give the Irish (6-0) a seven-point lead. Stanford (4-2) responded by driving to a first-and-goal at the 4. Behind its big strong offensive line, Taylor ran for 1 on first, 2 on second and inches on third down. That left one play from inside the 1 and the Notre Dame defense, led by Carlos Calabrese, held up Taylor and moved him backward. “Very good opponent in Stanford, but

today Notre Dame was better,” Kelly said. It had been a few years since that was the case. Stanford had won three straight in the series, physically dominating the Irish, with Andrew Luck at the helm. With Luck gone to the NFL, the Irish stood up to the bullies. Rees relieved Everett Golson after the sophomore took a helmet to the head during Notre Dame’s game-tying field goal drive late in the fourth. In overtime, Rees lofted a 16-yard pass to Theo Riddick to convert third-and-8. He threw behind Jones, who reached back for a sliding twohanded catch and 20-13 lead.

Reid returned it to the Gamecocks 22, then LSU drove to the 5 before settling for its third field goal to take a 16-14 lead. Marcus Lattimore had a quiet night by his standards, gaining only 35 yards on 13 carries, but had given the Gamecocks a 14-10 lead in the third quarter when he impressively broke Reid’s tackle on a 2-yard scoring run.

Bell scores 4 TDs as Oklahoma smashes Texas Associated Press

DALLAS — When Bob Stoops starts to rattle off the scores of the big wins he’s brought home for Oklahoma in the Red River Rivalry, they all start to sound alike – and oh, that’s so sweet for the Sooners. Damien Williams broke off a 95-yard touchdown run for the longest rush in the rivalry’s history, Blake Bell powered his way in for four TDs and No. 13 Oklahoma beat No. 15 Texas 63-21 Saturday for its second straight blowout in the series. Stoops is now 9-5 against Mack Brown and responsible for three of Oklahoma’s five most lopsided wins over Texas – and that doesn’t include last year’s 55-17 clobbering. Put this one right up there with 65-13 in 2003 and 63-14 in 2000, both seasons when the Sooners played for the national championship. “It’s in the same ballpark,” Stoops said, trying to rank his glut of triumphs against Texas. “If we’d have left our (starting) defense out there, I don’t think the end would have been like it was. It would have been right there with those. “Those are pretty special ones, and this definitely is right there with them.” Landry Jones threw for 321 yards and two touchdowns and for the third straight time got to slap on his head the Golden Hat trophy that goes to the winner. He entered rare territory, break-

Oklahoma quarterback Blake Bell celebrates after the Sooners’ 63-21 win over Texas on Saturday. Bell, from Wichita, scored four touchdowns. ing Steve Davis’ record for wins at the school and becoming just the fourth Sooners QB to beat Texas three times. “Just the game of football is great, but this game in particular, there’s something about it,” Jones said. “There’s something about the atmosphere – the crimson versus the burnt orange and just this rivalry. There’s something special about it. I’ve just been so thankful that I’ve been able to play in this game.” The Longhorns (3-2, 1-2 Big 12) couldn’t get a stop and never got their offense going, then lost quarterback David Ash to an apparent left wrist injury when they were trailing 49-8 in the

fourth quarter. Ash grasped at his left hand after getting hit by Oklahoma’s Chuka Ndulue after he’d released what turned out to be his final pass attempt of the game. He headed to the locker room, pointing to the sky with his right hand and a towel over his bruised and swollen left wrist. “It’s just unacceptable for Texas to lose like that to Oklahoma, much less anybody, and especially two years in a row,” Brown said. “I’m disappointed for our coaches, our fans and our players because that’s not who we are.” Case McCoy relieved Ash and threw late touchdown passes to

Mike Davis and John Harris against the Sooners’ backups. Carrington Byndom returned an interception for a touchdown just after halftime, but it didn’t create a spark for the Longhorns. Defensive tackle Casey Walker weaved through players to plant an OU flag at midfield, punctuating a day when Oklahoma amassed a 677-289 advantage in total yardage and ran for 343 yards. A Texas defense that had high expectations at the start of the season has now given up 1,186 yards rushing in the past five weeks, with back-to-back losses that could knock them out of the Big 12 race. “We couldn’t stop the run. When you can’t stop the run, things get ugly real quick,” said Alex Okafor, the Longhorns’ defensive end and NFL prospect. “It’s been like that all season. We’ve got to find a way to stop it.” Fullback Trey Millard had a career-best 119 yards receiving, including a 73-yard catch that was one of two early back-breaking plays by the Sooners (4-1, 2-1 Big 12). After Texas’ second of four straight three-and-outs to start the game, Williams zipped through a hole on the right side of the line and got a smashing block from receiver Kenny Stills against Quandre Diggs to clear the way for the longest run in the rivalry’s 107 games. Millard then went hurdling over safety Mykkele Thompson to turn a short pass into a 73-yard gain and set up Bell’s

third score to make it 27-2. The Longhorns were being outgained 314 yards to 14 at that point. All that kept Texas from a completely inept first half was a botched extra-point snap by the Sooners after their first touchdown, allowing Chris Whaley to block Michael Hunnicutt’s kick and Diggs to return it for a 2-point conversion. Even when there was a tiny glimmer of hope for the Longhorns, Oklahoma quickly snuffed it out. And there was nothing Texas could do to stop it. Bell converted a fourth-and-1 to keep the first drive going, then scored on an 8-yard run in the “Belldozer” short-yardage package. He’d add three 1-yard TD runs, and Jones threw two touchdown passes. “It’s going to make the bus ride relaxing. Guys are going to be laughing and joking for three hours,” defensive end David King said.

Kansas coach Charlie Weis walks the sideline during the first half of Saturday's game against Oklahoma State in Lawrence.

First quarter Key play: On fourth and short from the KU 16, Oklahoma State went hurry-up, but the KU defense stuffed running back Joseph Randle for the Jayhawks’ second fourth-down stop. Key stat: One hour, 19 minutes. That’s how long the game was delayed after lightning disrupted the afternoon with 44 second left in the first quarter.

Second quarter Key play: The Kansas defense finally broke when Cowboys QB J.W. Walsh busted through a tackle and scored on a 4-yard touchdown with 7:34 left. Key stat: The Jayhawks’ defense held Oklahoma State running back Joseph Randle to just 3.2 yards per carry on 17 rushes in the first half.

Fourth quarter

Key play: Oklahoma State took command early in the third quarter on a 72-yard catch-and-run by Cowboys receiver Charlie Moore. Linebacker Jake Love missed the first tackle, and Moore zoomed past the rest of the KU defense. Key stat: 17-0. That was the Cowboys’ lead after three quarters. KU won the fourth quarter for the first time this season.

Key play: Kansas failed to convert on a fourth and 5 that would have kept its final drive alive in the fourth quarter. Key stat: The Jayhawks finished the day zero for five on fourth-down conversion attempts.

Orlin Wagner/Associated Press

Report card Offense: B. The Jayhawks finally showed some life when backup quarterback Michael Cummings replaced Dayne Crist. But the game ball goes to junior

running back James Sims, who carried KU in the fourth quarter. Defense: B+. Where was this last week against K-State? After getting torched in the second half last week, KU’s front seven responded in a huge way. Special teams: C. The roughing-thekicker penalty hurt in the final minutes. But punter Sean Huddleston came on and did a nice job while replacing starter Ron Doherty. Coaching: B. Last season, KU lost to Oklahoma State 70-28. The Cowboys aren’t the same team. But this may have been Kansas’ best performance of the Weis era. Player of the game: Walsh finished 18 of 29 for 255 yards, while also rushing for 45 yards. Reason to hope: If the Jayhawks can hang with Oklahoma State for four quarters, maybe they can find a Big 12 victory at some point this season. Reason to mope: Kansas has to play at Oklahoma next week — the same Sooners team that crushed Texas on Saturday in the Red River Shootout. Looking ahead: Yes, the Jayhawks will travel to Norman, Okla., to play Oklahoma. Quote: “If it’s gonna be Mike, it’s gonna be Mike,” — KU’s Bradley McDougald, on the feeling after KU backup Michael Cummings entered the game.


off two touchdown drives while junior running back James Sims torched the Oklahoma State defense. Now came fourth down. Bourbon made his way into the flat. And Cummings’ throw sailed out of reach. “I should have stepped up in the pocket and made the throw,” Cummings said, “instead of trying to get it over the top of a defensive end.” The KU defense banded together for another quick stop as coach Charlie Weis burned his final timeouts. But the offense never got the ball back after KU was called for roughing the punter on OSU’s fourth-down kick. OSU ran out the clock and left Lawrence with a 20-14 victory. It was a game that had taken hours — a 1-hour, 19-minute weather delay stalling the game in the first half. But it was still a loss; KU’s fifth straight. The Jayhawks (1-5, 0-3) have lost 15 straight in the Big 12. For most of the second half, this felt like another inevitable loss. But then Cummings came into the game, leaving Weis with an important question as KU prepares to travel to Oklahoma. Is Crist, who finished 10 for 22 for 136 yards, still the Jayhawks’ starting quarterback? And

Weis didn’t want to delve into specifics — “It’s 7:22 after an 18-hour game,” he said — but he conceded that he would have to give some thought to the position this week. “I think you have to honestly evaluate where you are right now and what gives you the best chance of winning,” Weis said. “And whatever that answer is, that’s where we’ll go.” Last winter, Weis brought

Crist in from Notre Dame to be the man. He’d known the quarterback for years. And the match felt like a perfect way to re-invigorate the KU program. It hasn’t worked out. “It’s difficult to make it,” Weis said of benching Crist. “But really this is about the team. What’s gonna give the team the best chance? And at the time, I thought putting Mike in there might provide a spark.” Cummings finished 5 of 10 for 75 yards, including a 21-yard touchdown pass to Jimmay Mundine that cut

Oklahoma State’s lead to 20-7. But the spark seemed to translate to Sims, who finished the game with 138 yards on 27 carries. “I just wanted the ball in my hands in the fourth quarter,” said Sims, who added a 30-yard touchdown run to cut the lead to 20-14 with 8:52 left in the fourth quarter. OSU had rolled into town with the highest-scoring offense in the wide-open Big 12, and a defense that allowed 59 points to Arizona in a loss earlier this year. So buckle in for a shootout, right? Well, not so much. KU’s defense came to play, swarming to the football and limiting Oklahoma State running back Joseph Randle, the Big 12’s leading rusher from Wichita, to 2.8 yards per carry. “We did a better job of tackling,” Weis said. So now KU moves on. Oklahoma comes next week. And it won’t get any easier — no matter who is playing quarterback. Still, Weis took solace in one change — a change sparked by Cummings, Sims and a near miss in the final minutes. “They all hurt,” Weis said, “But this is the first time we’ve gone out in the fourth quarter and played like a team that wants to win.” Check Rustin Dodd’s Jayhawk Dispatch blog at Reach him at

rival. Klein was the main reason. While some around him struggled, he played arguably his finest game. Not only did he throw for 187 yards and rush for 105 and three touchdowns, he was at his best when it mattered most. Snyder continually gave him total control on third downs out of an empty backfield, and he delivered with completions and scrambles for first downs. With Iowa State leading 14-10 in the second quarter, Klein found Tyler Lockett over the middle for a 45-yard gain that led to a touchdown 1:30 before halftime. In the second half, he showed patience in the pocket, finding Chris Harper four times for 51 yards and waiting for holes to develop up

front before taking off for long runs that gave K-State leads of 24-14 and 27-21. “I was really impressed by him, especially today because all three of the linebackers we played against were really good,” Harper said. “That was probably the best group of linebackers we have played … I don’t think they get the credit they deserve.” Still, the Cyclones had two chances to win. Trailing by six with 4:24 to play, Iowa State returned a kickoff to the 40-yard line and had plenty of time to score a go-ahead touchdown. The Cyclones have done it before against highly-ranked opponents, upsetting No. 2 Oklahoma State in overtime last year and beating three other ranked teams under Paul Rhoads. But they couldn’t re-create that magic. K-State forced a turnover on downs after four plays. The Wildcats were unable to pick up a first down to run out the clock on their next drive, but accomplished the next-best thing. Ryan Doerr pinned the Cyclones at their own 3 with a punt, and ISU was stopped on four downs. “It came down to which team executed better,” Rhoads said, “and they executed better down the line.” Once again, K-State won a close game. After last season, that was something its players were used to. “It was very familiar, but it’s not last season,” senior cornerback Nigel Malone said. “This was one of the

first times that this team had been put in a situation like that, so good thing that we did carry over some of the traits from last year and held guys in late-game situations.” Iowa State quarterback Jared Barnett hurt K-State early with his scrambling ability. He only rushed for 35 yards, but he kept plays alive with his feet and threw for 166 yards and two touchdowns. The Wildcats figured him out as the game went on, though, with junior safety Ty Zimmerman intercepting him at the goal line in the second quarter and Randall Evans making a team-high nine tackles. They held the Cyclones to 231 total yards and clinched the game with big plays in the final moments. “It’s all about how you respond,” senior linebacker Arthur Brown said. “We came up with some mistakes and did some things we probably shouldn’t have done, but we responded to it. That’s why we were able to come out and be successful today.” Now it’s a week to prepare for West Virginia, which was a top-five team before Saturday’s loss. “We ended up being 1-0 today, but we weren’t 1-0 on every play,” Klein said. “That’s something we are striving for and just have to keep working at and keep getting better.”

five shy of Darren Sproles’ K-State record. But it’s not the touchdown runs or the record chase that makes Klein special. He has a slew of assets that are difficult to quantify. That’s a lot of words when one — intangibles — could suffice. But Klein is worth a lot of words. When the big lug takes off running, he has the footwork to make tacklers expecting to make a hit swing and miss. Klein is 6-foot-5, 240 pounds. Imagine how hard it must be to make defenders swing and miss. He sets up his own runs, often times, with a wily ability to stand nearly still behind his offensive line until a hole starts to open. Then he breaks through like a tsunami, destroying everything in his path. Klein is that rare quarterback of whom there is so much to say that his ability as a passer gets pushed way down the list. But he does have some ability as a passer and was an efficient 16 of 24 for 187 yards. His third-down conversion percentage is among the best in the country. On 4th-and-1, he’s money. And I haven’t even mentioned those intangibles — leadership, intelligence, passion, perseverance — that are the cherry on top of Klein’s yummy cream-filled middle. Klein, too, speaks to the genius of Snyder, who has molded him from that piece of putty that gets tossed out after a school play day into a legitimate Heisman Trophy candidate. There was a time not so long ago when Klein was seen as a space-taker in the K-State program. Now

the Wildcats are clearing space in their trophy case for what he’s brought and could legitimate bring to the program. Put Snyder in a laboratory with a prospective quarterback and the mad doctor almost always produces a game-changer. This is turning into another effusive Klein column, isn’t it? And it shouldn’t necessarily be, because his performance Saturday wasn’t one of his best. It was just typical Klein, but even on a day he was typical he was the difference. When Iowa State most needed a Klein moment from its quarterback, Barnett fell flat. When Klein falls, he’s usually in the end zone. He carried the football 25 times against Iowa State and has toted it 492 times in his career and 415 times the past two seasons. He takes shot after shot on these runs, dusts himself and calls his number again. Even Snyder, when asked about Klein, has stopped trying to come up with flowery descriptions. Klein isn’t about flowers. He’s about the dirt in which they’re planted and the thorns some produce. He’s pure grit, masking the nicest guy you’d ever want to meet. Iowa State set its traps for this game, but Klein is big, big game. It’ll take more than a trap to bring him down. He chews through traps.

From Page 1D

Texas Tech on Saturday. K-State is the final undefeated team remaining in the Big 12, and can take a commanding lead in the league race with a win at West Virginia this week. It already owns a road win over Oklahoma and can further improve its tie-breaker stock. Saturday, the Wildcats made things hard on themselves by committing as many penalties against Iowa State — nine — as they did in their previous five games. There were also communication problems between the press box and the sideline, which made it difficult for K-State coaches to signal plays to Klein and led to timeouts. Frustration set in early. “That’s tremendously out of character for us,” Snyder said. “We have been the leastpenalized team in the country. Now we became the most-penalized team in the country.” A close game was to be expected given how close this series has been lately. Though the Wildcats (6-0, 3-0 Big 12) have beaten the Cyclones (4-2, 1-2) five straight times, all five have been nail-biters and decided by seven points or fewer. Without its error-free style and Iowa State holding it to 364 total yards, K-State had to gut out another narrow victory over its Farmageddon

pinned Iowa State in poor field position. But it wasn’t a perfect day. Tramaine Thompson fumbled a punt. Luckily, it didn’t hurt K-State when Ty Zimmerman made an interception on the next play. Coaching: B+. K-State fought through a rowdy crowd, communication problems and a boatload of penalties to win a tough road game. Bill Snyder’s discipline showed. Player of the game: Klein. The senior made good decisions all day and carried his team at times. Reason to hope: The Wildcats have played a game they would like to forget and are still undefeated with two road wins under their belt. Reason to mope: K-State committed nine penalties, proving that it can’t always rely on error-free games. Looking ahead: Though Texas Tech has proven West Virginia can be beaten, a trip to Morgantown could be the Wildcats’ toughest game of the year. West Virginia’s offense will present a unique test. Quote: “I would have liked for us to play a little better than we did. But there were times we played extremely well.” – Bill Snyder.


Report card Offense: B. Klein played his best game, but every yard he gained was tough. He had to scramble for first downs and find Chris Harper on the perimeter. John Hubert was held to 79 yards and the offense committed too many penalties. Defense: A. Jared Barnett fooled K-State defenders early with his scrambling ability, and used his imagination to make big plays. But as the game wore on, the Wildcats were dominant on ISU’s final two drives. Special teams: B+. Anthony Cantele made two important field goals and Ryan Doerr

Milestone moments — Klein reached two career milestones on Saturday. He scored his 43rd rushing touchdown, which is second-most in school history and a K-State QB record. He has also thrown for 3,157 yards, making him the 12th player in K-State history to throw for 3,000 yards. Worth noting — Zimmerman has intercepted a pass in three straight games. ... K-State has started 6-0 in back-to-back seasons for the first time since 1999-2000.… Brown walked away from the game with a bandage over his left ear. He said it was cut during the game, but wasn’t a major injury. — Kellis Robinett

Now you know.



Mike Blair’s photography has captured the best of nature in Kansas.

Check out Michael Pearce’s blog at outdoors.




or 26 years, as photographer for the Kansas Department of Wildlife and Parks, Mike Blair shared the Kansas outdoors with thousands of fans. His shots of dazzling ducks, panoramic sunsets and bug-eyed big bucks in the throes of rut were so good, and numerous, an entire issue of Kansas Wildlife and Parks magazine was annually devoted to his work. Blair, 58, recently retired from the state agency. He’s quick to share the traits and tricks that led to his unparalleled success. What he doesn’t know is more surprising than what he does. “I’ve never considered myself much of a photographer. There are lot of people running Blair around with cameras that know a lot more about actual photography than I do,” Blair said. “I always thought I was just a hunter with a camera in my hand. It was more important for me to know how to get really close to wildlife than anything else.” Like most serious hunters, Blair always relied on persistence. “Day after day, you have to be out there,” he said. “I always told editors I have to budget time for failure. There are days when you go daylight to dark and can’t call in a coyote. Then one morning you call in seven on your first try, and get amazing photography. You just have to keep going.” That often includes enduring adverse conditions. He’s waited by waterholes through sweltering, triple-digit afternoons to photograph wildlife ranging from deer to songbirds coming for a drink. His best pheasant photography came on a day when the wind chill was about 70-below. “The birds were so desperate for food they paid no attention to me in a car just a few feet away,” he said. “It was miserable, but I got some tremendous pictures of pheasants in the snow.” Another time, Blair endured a colony of biting ants as he waited for coyote pups to make an appearance. Outdoors from dawn to dark, week after week, brought Blair a few special animals that seemed especially


Dasypus novemcinctus No, the armadillo you see waddling along a backroad isn’t more proof of global warming. What some call “armored opossums” have been moving northward for many decades. The first armadillos didn’t cross the Rio Grande into Texas until about 1850, and weren’t seen in Kansas until about 50 years ago. Now, however, they’ve been documented in all 105 Kansas counties and some places in Nebraska. Armadillos can carry leprosy and it can be transmitted to humans, according to a New York Times article.

The size of this buck alone is enough to make it special. That the photo was taken with the camera’s shutter open for four seconds also makes it one of Mike Blair’s favorites.

Mike Blair/Courtesy photos

Mike Blair has relied heavily on game calls for much of his photography. This adult coyote is coming to the recorded sounds of a coyote pup in distress.

Mike Blair has done a lot of his best waterfowl photography during the spring migrations, when the birds are in full plumage. This shot of three pintail drakes and a hen is one of his favorites. cooperative with his photography. After a few days of his taking photos from within a blind, Blair found a western Kansas female swift fox trusted him enough to tag along as she hunted and fed her pups. An avid bowhunter, one of Blair’s

favorite photos is of a world-class buck, complete with a long droptine, that froze long enough to come out perfectly sharp in light so low that the photo required a four-second shutter speed. Blair had his favored times and

places when carrying a camera. “Oct. 15 to Nov. 15 would be the finest time to be in the field each year, no doubt,” he said. “You have the glory of the most colorful season and that’s also when the (waterfowl) migrations and (deer) rutting cycles all come together.” Usually about now is when he’d make an annual autumn trek to the forested areas of Linn, Bourbon and Miami counties. “It’s like a scaled-down version of the Ozarks, with wild lands by the hundreds of acres, with hills and fall foliage,” he said. “It can be about as good as New England, but on a smaller scale.” For many years he considered the Quivira National Wildlife Refuge a world-class wildlife photography destination. Now, he’s not sure. He thinks management practices that have removed hundreds of acres of trees may at least be partially to blame. “It used to be around every corner you got something special,” he said. “The last year or two I can go up there and not come back with anything.” Rather than a full retirement, Blair is opening his own communications company, hopefully specializing in outdoors videography. He probably won’t be traveling very far for that job, either. “People ask me where I’d like to go, and I tell them I’ll stay right here in Kansas,” he said. “Each part of Kansas has its own beauty, and we have pronghorn, we have deer and the great migrations. Its where east meets west. We have it all right here. Most people don’t understand the beauty and mystery of Kansas.”

I have promised my team for 22+ years in the car business that we will never be open on Sundays We are closed because we care about our families and our faith We also realize that Sunday is oftentimes the busiest day of the week, because we aren’t here and some people like to shop for cars without being helped. You are welcome to stop by on Sundays All of our cars are clearly priced and the lot is set up to allow you to drive through or walk the inventory in peace Give us a call on Monday, we would love to serve you.
