PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA makes a televised announcement of the death of Osama bin Laden from the East Room of the White House Sunday in Washington, D.C.

“It was nearly 10 years ago that a bright September day was darkened by the worst attack on the American people in our history. The images of 9/11 are seared into our national memory. ... The American people did not choose this fight. It came to our shores, and started with the senseless slaughter of our citizens.”

President Obama: ‘Justice has been done’ Terrorist leader slain in firefight in Pakistan By Julie Pace and Matt Apuzzo Associated Press

W A S H I N G T O N — Osama bin Laden, the glowering mastermind behind the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks that murdered thousands of Americans, was killed in an operation led by the United States, President Barack Obama said Sunday. “Justice has been done,” said the president in a dramatic latenight announcement at the White House. A small team of Americans killed bin Laden in a firefight Sunday at a compound in Pakistan, the president said, and took custody of his remains. American officials said they were being handled in accordance with Islamic tradition. A jubilant crowd gathered outside the White House as word spread of bin Laden’s death after a global manhunt that lasted nearly a decade. Former President George W. Bush, who was in office on the day of the attacks, issued a written statement hailing bin Laden’s death as a momentous achievement. “The fight against terror A HUGE CROWD CHEERS “U-S-A U-S-A” outside the White House Sunday upon hearing the news that terrorist leader Osama bin Laden is dead. goes on, but tonight America has sent an unmistakable message: No matter how long it takes, justice will be done,” he said.

Bin Laden took path of fanaticism, terror By Paul Haven Associated Press Writer

Osama Bin Laden was born in Saudi Arabia in 1954. He became known as the most pious of the sons among his wealthy father’s 54 children. Bin Laden’s path to militant Islam began as a teenager in the 1970s when he got caught up in the fundamentalist movement then sweeping Saudi Arabia. He was a voracious reader of Islamic literature and listened to weekly sermons in the holy city of Mecca. Thin, bearded and over 6 feet tall, bin Laden joined the Afghans’ war against invading Soviet troops in the 1980s and gained a reputation as a courageous and resourceful commander. Access to his family’s considerable construction fortune helped raise his profile among the mujahedeen fighters. At the time, bin Laden’s interests converged with those of the United States, which backed the “holy war” against Soviet occupation with money and arms. When bin Laden returned home to Saudi Arabia, he was showered with praise and donations and was in demand as a speaker in mosques and homes. It did not take long for his aims to diverge from those of his former Western supporters. “When we buy American goods, we are accomplices in the murder of Palestinians,” he said in one of the cassettes made of his speeches from those days. A seminal moment in bin Laden’s life came in 1990, when U.S. troops landed on

Saudi soil to drive Iraq out of Kuwait. Bin Laden tried to dissuade the government from allowing non-Muslim armies into the land where the P rophet Muhammad gave birth to Islam, but the Saudi leadership turned to the United States to protect its vast oil reserves. When bin Laden continued criticizing Riyadh’s close alliance with Washington, he was stripped of Saudi citizenship. “I saw radical changes in his personality as he changed

from a calm, peaceful and gentle man interested in helping Muslims into a person who believed that he would be able to amass and command an army to liberate Kuwait. It revealed his arrogance and his haughtiness,” Prince Turki, the former Saudi intelligence chief, said in an interview with Arab News and MBC television in late 2001. After being kicked out of Saudi Arabia, bin Laden sought refuge in Sudan. The African country acceded to a U.S. request and offered to

REACTION TO BIN LADEN’S DEATH Flags, firecrackers herald news in city A small crowd of men gathered in the Chi Omega fountain on the Kansas University campus shortly after word broke that Osama bin Laden had been killed. Gripping American flags and a small sign, they chanted “US-A! U-S-A!” to passing motorists, before walking back down West Campus Road with the American flag held high. Another group had gathered in front of the Sigma Alpha Epsilon house, milling about and listening as the sound of gunshots and firecrackers echoed across Lawrence.

Bush reacts to news of bin Laden’s death DALLAS (AP) — Former President George W. Bush said he has congratulated President Barack Obama after hearing about the death of Osama bin Laden. In a statement Sunday night, Bush said Obama had called to tell him that U.S. forces had killed bin Laden. Bush said he also congratulated the men and women of the military and intelligence communities who devoted their lives to the mission. Bush said, “This momentous achievement marks a victory for America, for people who seek peace around the world, and for all those who lost loved ones on September 11, 2001.” He also said the U.S. “has sent an unmistakable message: No matter how long it takes, justice will be done. ”

N.Y. mayor says U.S. kept promise NEW YORK (AP) — New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg says Americans have kept their promise after Sept. 11 to capture or kill Osama bin Laden. President Barack Obama announced Sunday night that bin Laden was killed in an operation led by the United States. Bloomberg said the killing of the terrorist leader doesn’t lessen the suffering Americans experienced at his hands the day the World Trade Center was destroyed but is a “critically important victory” for the nation. He said it was a tribute to the men and women in the armed forces who have fought so hard.

Back on familiar terrain in Afghanistan — allowed in by the government of Burhanuddin Rabbani — bin Laden and his al-Qaida network prepared for the holy war that turned him into Washington’s No. 1 enemy.

TRIVIA CONTESTANTS at The Bottleneck, 737 N.H., stop their game to gather around the television Sunday night to watch the news conference at which President Barack Obama announced that the United States had captured and killed Osama bin Laden 10 years after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks on the World Trade Center in New York.

Crowds gather in NYC, DC after hearing news NEW YORK (AP) — Hundreds of people were gathering in New York City at ground zero, where the twin towers fell on Sept. 11 nearly 10 years ago, hours after President Barack Obama announced that Osama bin Laden was killed. Many were waving American flags or taking pictures early today. The group broke into spontaneous, jubilant cheers and song, including a rendition of “I’m Proud to be an American.” Farther uptown in Times Square, dozens stood together on the clear spring night, making calls and snapping photos. An FDNY SUV drove by and flashed its lights and sounded its siren, and the crowd broke into applause. And in Washington, D.C., a large group gathered in front of the White House, chanting “USA! USA!” and waving American flags.

of America can be proud of their commitment and dedication. We will probably never be able to personally thank all who were responsible for ending the reign of terror of bin Laden, but we can celebrate their success and offer our appreciation for the work they do every day to keep America safe.”

U.S. Sen. Jerry Moran (R-Kan.) “Nearly 10 years ago, thousands of innocent Americans lost their lives on September 11. The momentous news of Osama bin Laden’s death — al-Qaida’s leader and the mastermind of those attacks — is a historic success in the war on terror. It Moran speaks to the resolve of our American troops and intelligence officers who have worked relentlessly for this moment. As we move forward, we will continue our unyielding efforts to dismantle terror networks around the world and protect American lives.”

The 10th anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks is just months away. Bloomberg said in a statement he hopes news of bin Laden’s demise will “bring some closure and comfort to all those who lost loved ones” that day.

kept a low profile, uncertain of their welcome under the new regime. The Taliban leader Mullah Mohammed Omar called bin Laden to southern Kandahar from his headquarters in Tora Bora and eventually through large and continual financial contributions to the isolated Taliban, bin Laden became dependent on the religious militia for his survival. In Afghanistan, he would wake before dawn for prayers, then eat a simple breakfast of cheese and bread. He closely monitored world affairs. Almost daily, he and his men — Egyptians, Yemenis, Saudis, among others — practiced attacks, hurling explosives at targets and shooting at imaginary enemies. He also went horseback riding, his favorite hobby, and enjoyed playing traditional healer, often prescribing honey, his favorite food, and herbs to treat colds and other illnesses. In Afghanistan, bin Laden was often accompanied by his four wives — the maximum Islam allows. Estimates on the number of his children range up to 23. At several points in the years since the Sept. 11 attacks, bin Laden’s capture or death had appeared imminent. Through it all, bin Laden vowed repeatedly that he was willing to die in his fight to drive the Israelis from Jerusalem and Americans from Saudi Arabia and Iraq. “America can’t get me alive,” bin Laden was quoted as saying in an interview with a Pakistani journalist conducted shortly after the U.S. invasion of Afghanistan. “I can be eliminated, but not my mission.”

Funding cuts threaten at-risk-youth programs


NASA: No shuttle launch before Sunday NASA’s space shuttles are dragging their tails toward retirement. The high-profile voyage of Endeavour — the nextto-last space shuttle flight led by the husband of wounded Rep. Gabrielle Giffords — is off until at least next Sunday because of a technical problem. The latest culprit, believed to be a bad fuse box, illustrates just how complex these space machines are and why NASA’s goodbye to the 30-year shuttle program may be a long one. Commander Mark Kelly and his five crewmates quickly headed back to Houston on Sunday morning, two days after their first launch attempt was foiled. The tip-off that Endeavour had a problem was the failure of heaters that are crucial for keeping a fuel line from freezing in space. The launch was called off Friday as the astronauts headed to the pad to board the shuttle. NASA has now traced the problem to the switch box.

Black box from Air France crash found Investigators have located and recovered the missing memory unit of the flight data recorder of a 2009 Air France flight — a remarkable deep-sea discovery they hope will explain why the aircraft went down in a remote area of the mid-Atlantic, killing all 228 people on board. France’s air accident investigation agency BEA said a search by a submarine probing 12,800 feet below the ocean’s surface located and recovered the unit Sunday morning. The unit is now aboard the Ile de Sein, a ship that’s helping conduct the probe, the statement said. The statement also included photos of the recorder — a red cylinder partially buried in sand on the sea floor. Judging from the photos, the unit appeared to be in good condition. Still, BEA officials have warned that the recordings may yet prove unusable, considering the pressure they were subjected to for nearly two years.

Barber shop tests energy efficiency By Christine Metz

Court won’t block levee blast The U.S. Supreme Court on Sunday refused to halt a plan by the Army Corps of Engineers to blast open a levee to relieve the rain-swollen Mississippi River even as the Illinois town at risk of flooding was cleared out. As Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito issued his ruling, struggling Cairo near the confluence of Ohio and Mississippi rivers resembled a ghost town. Illinois National Guard troops went door to door with law enforcers to enforce the mayor’s “mandatory” evacuation order the previous night. About 20 to 30 families were allowed to stay — a courtesy extended only to adults — in the 2,800-resident town after signing waivers acknowledging that they understood the potential peril, National Guard Sgt. 1st Class Heath Clark said. Alito did not comment in denying Missouri’s request to block the corps’ plan. Alito handles emergency requests from Missouri and other states in the 8th Circuit in the Midwest. 4 | MALDIVES

Protesters demand ouster of president Anti-government demonstrators defied a heavy police presence Sunday to protest for a second straight night, demanding the ouster of Maldives President Mohamad Nasheed. More than 3,000 people gathered at a main intersection in the capital, Male, to protest government inaction in controlling rising prices, alleged mismanagement and wasteful spending. The protests resumed hours after police used tear gas and batons to break up a demonstration in Male that began Saturday night and continued into early Sunday. Organizers say about 5,000 people took part in the earlier protest. Police had set up barricades and were ready with anti-riot gear.

But what Oscar lacked in ability, he made up for in enthusiasm. After his f irst round, in which dogs and owners were given a minute to complete as many throws and catches as possible — with more points

given for longer throws — Oscar continued to jump and bite at the disc in Ostrom’s hand. “He’s still having a good time,” Ostrom said. The competition, sponsored by the Lawrence Parks and Recreation Department, was paired up with Sunday’s Art in the Park across the street. The event has become a tradition in Lawrence and drew a healthy crowd of more than a hundred spectators.

Red Shoe Walk to raise awareness on domestic violence By Sarah Aylward Special to the Journal-World

In order to understand the trials and tribulations of others, we are often told to walk a mile in their shoes. The Willow Domestic Violence Center is asking community members to do just that during its first annual Red Shoe Walk and 5K on May 6 at Haskell Indian Nations University. Men, women and children participants will be donning pairs of red high heels for the mile walk or the 5K run in an effort to bring support and attention to the work of the organization. Formerly called Women’s Transitional Care Services, the organization became the Willow Domestic Violence Center in 2010. Incorporated in 1976, the intent of the organiza-

The Willow Center serves about 1,500 survivors a year. In recent years, the agency has experienced a 13 percent increase in those it services, said Sarah Terwelp, executive director of the organization.

“Your Comfort is Our Business.” Business. ”

“Funding raised during the event will help keep the organization’s shelter operating,” Terwelp said. “Specifically, contributions from this event will go toward sheltering survivors, which costs $1,332 for one day. This expense includes security, staff services, food and the safe emergency shelter.” Though the subject matter may be serious, the event is coordinated with fun in mind. “This is the first year for this event in Lawrence,” Terwelp said. “We began with the national awareness effort, ‘Walk a Mile in Her Shoes.’” That effort includes a fundraiser calendar, published in December, with photographs of more than two dozen men in the community sporting red heels. Images include former Kansas University and NBA player Scot Pollard, KU basketball coach

Bill Self and Lawrence-Douglas County Fire Medical Chief Mark Bradford. “This is our first major fundraiser in 34 years,” said event organizer and Willow board member Cathie Rodkey. “We plan to start choosing next year’s Red Shoe Calendar participants in July. It will be a very exciting time for us.” The event also will include a cake in the shape of a red high heel, created by Maria Cuevas of Maria Makes Cakes. Organizers hope the cake will be a contender for a Guinness World Record. “This is my first year of involvement; however, I am very impressed with the amount of effort and desire they have in bringing attention to the domestic violence problem in our

Has the Lawrence superintendent of schools had an increase in salary anytime in the past five years?


Julie Boyle, communications director for the Lawrence school district, said: “The Lawrence school district hired superintendent Rick Doll in 2009-10 at a salary of $156,000. His current salary, $153,011, reflects a decrease, due to the school board’s approval in March of 2010 of districtwide administrative staff furloughs as part of $4.6 million in budget cuts. “Former Superintendent Randy Weseman’s salary during each of his last three years with the school district was $146,758 in 2006-07, $1 5 1 , 164 in 2007-08, and $155,654 in 2008-09.”

Art in the Park glitters like gold

Celebrated showcase marks 50th anniversary

By Shaun Hittle

Olathe artist Michael Williams hammered nails to the beats of Queen and the Creedence Clearwater Revival on Saturday at the 50th annual Art in the Park. Williams sat on a stool and peppered a wooden board with nails that snaked along in a pattern. He calls it, simply, nail art. “It’s a good stress reliever,” said Williams, who joined more than 100 other artists at the eclectic event at South Park on Sunday. “It’s a conversation piece.” Williams has been hammering away at his nail art for the past year, after he decided to combine his construction background and artistic creativity. Williams pounds, paints and layers the nails into finished products including Jayhawks, koi fish and a nail art K-State Wildcat that Williams wisely chose to keep hidden at the back of his display. Art lovers could also find more conventional art forms at the event, such as watercolor paintings and jewelry. But it seemed, as usual, that unique works like Williams’ kept the sidewalks packed despite the cool, dreary weather. Visitors could find everything from teapot and utensil wind chimes to gruesomelooking stuffed dolls. Some of the artwork on dis-

United Way offering summer opportunity for youths

Immediate needs ● Northeast Kansas Youth Inc. is looking for volunteer staff to work with 5- to 12year-olds in its program PowerCamp for Kids, which meets at the United Way Center, 2518 Ridge Court, in the Doud Room. The program happens on the first and third Saturday of each month between September and May, from 6 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. NKY Inc. is always on the lookout for those inspired to work in the area of creative arts, computer

technology and sports, as well as volunteers who are interested in helping plan and assist with special events. Volunteers must be 18 years or older; an application process, background check and training are required. Contact Muriel Cowgill at 550-8951 or mcowgill@ for more information. ● The Lawrence Art Guild is looking for volunteers to staff the 1109 Gallery in downtown Lawrence. The 1109 Gallery is an all-inclusive gallery, operated 100 percent by volunteers, supporting the artwork of local artists. Shows have a variety of themes and change every five to six weeks to keep the gallery new and vibrant. Volunteers are at the gallery when it is open to the public, and help by providing information about the Art Guild and making sales. All volunteers will be trained and will work in pairs at the gallery. Volunteering for the Lawrence Art Guild is a great opportunity to become a part

of an organization that has been part of Lawrence for more than 50 years. Contact Linda Baranski at 856-2784 or gallery@lawrenceartguild.o rg for more information. ● The Jayhawk Area Agency on Aging is looking for volunteers to help a few elderly clients in need. Currently, one client is in need of a volunteer to help mow her lawn for the season because medical and financial issues are keeping her from maintaining it. Additionally, a volunteer driver is needed to take another client from Lawrence to an Oskaloosa nursing home to visit a spouse. If you are available to help either of these clients or to provide ongoing volunteer assistance to various JAAA clients, contact April Maddox at 785-235-1367 or

where air was leaking, Koch performed what is known as a blower door test, which uses a fan to pull air out of the home and increase air pressure. From there, Koch can gauge where unwanted air is flowing through doors, walls, ductwork, foundations and windows. She also uses an infrared thermometer, which makes it easier to see where hot air and cold air are coming in. On a sunny afternoon at the barber shop, the heat radiating through the windows was apparent. After spending several hours at the shop, Koch found good and bad qualities about the building. Among the good was a new white roof that was well insulated and reflected heat. And one of the most significant problems was a huge space between the barber shop’s high ceiling and the roof. Air was leaking into the space through utility lines, gaps in the ceiling and ceiling fans. Koch recommended seal-

ing off the space. “It’s nice to have the high ceilings, but the area between the ceiling and the roof we don’t need to condition. So we just seal it off,” she said. Another energy-saving measure, she said, would be to replace the long fluorescent T12 light bulbs in the shop with more efficient T8 ones. The bulbs use less electricity and last longer. Koch also suggested installing smart power strips. With hair dryers, electric razors and even an old lather machine, the barber shop had lots of equipment plugged into the wall. Even when the devices are off, the equipment still draws energy. Smart power strips allows for the flow of electricity to be completely shut off when the equipment isn’t in use. “They have a large load during the day when they are open, but during the evening you can minimize that load and save money by making sure everything is turned off automatically,” Koch said.

A similar savings could be found with programmable thermostats. Once the audit is done, home or business owners can take out a zero percent interest loan through Westar Energy to cover the cost of the upgrades. The loan is paid back monthly through the electric bill. But not all the recommendations will require a loan, Koch said. “A lot of these are do-ityourself jobs,” she said.

Staff Reports

Agency: United Way Roger Hill Volunteer Center Contact: 865-5030 or The United Way Roger Hill Volunteer Center is hosting a “Summer of Service” for Douglas County youths, ages 11-18, as part of the center’s Youth Volunteer Corps program. Projects will run from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Mondays through Thursdays. Youths may sign up for one or two projects, or join up for the whole summer. The program gives youths a chance to serve at the organizations that do so much for our community. The feedback from participants, parents and agencies last year was overwhelmingly positive. Opportunities include serving local seniors, learning about and helping clean up area ecosystems like the Kansas River, creating media outreach for GaDuGi SafeCenter, aiding in rehabilitating injured animals at Oper-


energy audit that is typically valued at $500 or $600. “We see problems in new commercial buildings and old commercial buildings,” Koch said. “Many times as the tenant changes, its use change. So it may have worked great for one tenant but it doesn’t really work for another.” For barber shop owner and Lawrence City Commissioner Mike Amyx, it made “all the sense in the world” to have an energy audit. He pointed to potential problems: an ill-fitted patch on the ceiling that allowed air to leak in from the attic, a missing window and a glass wall at the front of the shop. “We realize we probably have some deficiencies, and this is an opportunity for us to find those out,” he said. To help determine just


year, causing five programs to lose their funding and two to receive significant cuts. Juvenile Justice Authority, or JJA, grants go toward prevention and intervention programs for juveniles at risk, and the county decides how the state funds are distributed. They pay for mandatory core services, such as juvenile intake and assessment, and auxiliary programs. Five programs will go unfunded because of the loss of the grant: ● After-school programs of Boys and Girls Club of Lawrence. ● Jobs in the Arts Make Sense at Van Go Mobile Arts. ● Can We Talk. ● Big Brothers Big Sisters. ● Family and Youth Intervention program at Community Living Opportunities. Two programs, Working to Recognize Alternative Possibilities through Bert Nash Mental Health Center and the KU Truancy Prevention and Diversion Program, remained funded, but saw significant cuts. They were cuts that director of Douglas County Youth Services Pam Weigand had heard were coming. “I think everybody was anticipating cuts, but I don’t think anybody was anticipating quite this much,” Weigand said. “It weakens our ability to have programs that serve kids.” Now, many of these programs are operating on bare bones, cutting as much as they can before they have to cut services to Douglas County youths. Big Brothers Big Sisters received almost $22,000 in 2011 and will see nothing the next year. Cathy Brashler, executive director, said that’s a significant chunk of a salary. The organization has had to tighten up spending and will

ation WildLife and more. There is no cost to participate in Summer of Service, and all volunteer hours will be tracked for each youth participant. Applications are available by contacting The United Way Roger Hill Volunteer Center at 865-5030 or

area,” Cuevas said. Lawrence resident Ellen Young, who is assisting with the race and 5K, became involved with the Willow Center through a business relationship with Terwelp that developed into a friendship. “We would frequently discuss the issue of domestic violence,” Young said. “In my other life, prior to being happily married to my late husband for 23 years, I was a victim of domestic abuse. At the

time, it was not as public an issue as it has become. “It is important for victims of domestic abuse to have a safe place to go, where they can also receive financial help, assistance dealing with the courts and people who can help them make financial decisions,” she said. “The Willow Center is a place that can help them reenter mainstream society.”

$9,200, which hampers the ability to pay a graduate teaching assistant to monitor the KU students. If Sheldon sees any more cuts, she isn’t certain of the program’s future. “It really comes into question if we can continue to offer the program,” she said. “With all these cuts, if we don’t offer this program, what you’ll see in this country is truancy will increase.” Most of the organizations that saw cuts are trying everything to keep the programs operating, but soon some will have to start eliminating services. “You will see me knocking on people’s doors before you see me lay off any kid here,” Green said. “The community values this program and really gets what we do here. No one else is doing what we’re doing here.” But Green is nervous about what will happen to Van Go. The program gives at-risk kids jobs and something to do after school, exactly the sort of thing JJA is supposed to fund. “I’ve never wanted to cry wolf. I always try to stay positive. The glass is half full,” she said. “I don’t know where we’re going to go fill up our glasses any more.” — Reporter Brenna Hawley can be reached at 832-7217.

not fill the positions of five staff members who have left or retired in the last two years. Funding lost from the state and grants has to be made up by private fundraising. “The economy is hard on everyone, so even though our donors have been really good and supported us through all of this, it’s hard,” she said. “There’s only so many people you can tap in Lawrence.” Jan Sheldon, who runs the KU Truancy Prevention and Diversion Program, says if her program goes away, it will show years from now. “Truancy has more than just the day-to-day effect,” Sheldon said. “It has longterm effects.” Research shows truancy problems — skipping school — can lead to academic failure, dropping out, juvenile delinquency, drug and alcohol use, and, much later on, marital problems and incarceration. Sheldon’s program, which started in 1979, pairs truant students from Lawrence schools with students in the applied behavioral science program at Kansas University, who attempt to help them improve attendance. This program’s JJA funding was cut from about $14,400 to

Western, U.N. offices attacked after NATO strike SUPPORTERS INSPECT DAMAGE at the Gadhafi family compound in a residential area of Tripoli, Libya, on Sunday, in this photo made on a government organized tour. Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi escaped a NATO missile strike in Tripoli that killed one of his sons and three young grandchildren, a government spokesman said early Sunday.

By Karin Laub and Ben Hubbard Associated Press Writers

T R I P O L I , L I B Y A — Angry mobs attacked Western embassies and a U.N. office in Tripoli on Sunday after NATO bombed Moammar Gadhafi’s family compound in an attack officials said killed the leader’s second youngest son and three grandchildren, ages 6 months to 2 years. Russia said the Western alliance exceeded its U.N. mandate of protecting Libyan civilians with the strike. The vandalized embassies were empty and nobody was reported injured, but the attacks heightened tensions between the Libyan regime and Western powers, prompting the United Nations to pull its international staff out of the capital. The bombing did not slow the attacks by Gadhaf i’s forces on rebel strongholds in the western part of Libya that has remained largely under the control of the regime. The rebel port of Misrata, which has been besieged by Gadhafi’s troops for two months, came under heavy shelling Sunday, and at least 12 people were killed, a medic said. Gadhafi has repeatedly called for a cease-fire, most recently on Saturday, but has not halted his assault on Misrata, a city of 300,000 where hundreds have been killed since the rebellion against Libya’s ruler erupted in midFebruary. The rebels, who control


operation after receiving undisclosed intelligence information. Senior administration officials said the terrorist mastermind was found inside a custom-built compound with two security gates. They said it appeared to have been constructed to harbor one highvalue target and that for undisclosed reasons, officials became clear the hideout was bin Laden’s. Officials also said they believe the death puts alQaida on a path of decline that will be diff icult to reverse, but there was no word on the whereabouts of bin Laden’s second-in-command, Ayman al-Zawahri.

Decade since 9/11 The stunning end to the world’s most widely-watched manhunt came just months before the 10th anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks on the World Trade Centers and Pentagon, orchestrated by bin Laden’s al-Qaida organization, that killed more than 3,000 people. The attacks a decade ago seemed to come out of nowhere, even though alQaida had previously damaged American targets overseas. The terrorists hijacked planes, flew one of them into one of Manhattan’s Twin Towers — and, moments

most of eastern Libya, have been unable to gain an advantage on the battlefield despite weeks of NATO airstrikes. Alliance officials and allied leaders emphatically denied they were hunting Gadhafi to break the stalemate between the better trained government forces and the lightly armed rebels. Canadian Lt. Gen. Charles Bouchard, who commands NATO’s operation in Libya, said that “we do not target individuals.” However, the leaders of the U.S., Britain and France have said Gadhafi must go, prompting warnings by U.N. Security Council

members Russia, China and Brazil against NATO attempts to change the regime. In some of its strongest language, the Russian Foreign Ministry on Sunday accused NATO of a “disproportionate use of force” and cast doubt on NATO’s assertion that it is not targeting Gadhafi or members of his family. Russia called for an immediate cease-fire. NATO warplanes have shifted their focus in the past two weeks from support for rebels on the front lines to attacking the regime’s communications centers. Satur-

day’s strike reduced most of the Gadhaf i family compound, which takes up an entire block in the residential Garghour neighborhood, to rubble. Officials said it killed 29year-old Seif al-Arab Gadhafi, who had survived a 1986 U.S. airstrike on his father’s Bab alAziziya residential compound. Also killed were 2-year-old Carthage, the daughter of Gadhafi’s son Hannibal; sixmonth-old Mastura, daughter of Gadhafi’s daughter Aisha; and 15-month-old Seif Mohammed, son of Gadhafi’s son Mohammed.


gence officials have known for years that bin Laden trusted one al-Qaida courier in particular and they believed he might be living with him in hiding. In November, intelligence officials found out where he was living, a huge fortified compound in an affluent suburb of Islamabad. It was surrounded by walls as high as 18 feet high, topped with barbed wire. There were two security gates and no phone or Internet running into the house. Intelligence off icials believed the $1 million home was custom-built to harbor a major terrorist. CIA experts analyzed whether it could be anyone else, but time and again, they decided it was almost certainly bin Laden. Three adult males were also killed in Sunday’s raid, including one of bin Laden’s sons, whom officials did not name. One of bin Laden’s sons, Hamza, is a senior member of al-Qaida. Obama spoke with Bush and former President Bill Clinton Sunday night to inform them of the developments. Obama struck a less than boastful tone in his brief announcement, although he said the death of bin Laden was “the most significant achievement to date in our nation’s effort to defeat alQaida. “His death does not mark the end of our effort. There’s no doubt that al-Qaida will continue to pursue attacks

against us. We must and we will remain vigilant,” he added. Off icials said the U.S. would ensure that bin Laden’s body was handled in accordance with Islamic tradition.

Both buildings collapsed, trapping thousands inside and claiming the lives of firefighters and others who had rushed to help them. A third plane slammed into the Pentagon, defacing the symbol of America’s military night. A fourth crashed in rural Pennsylvania after passengers overpowered the hijackers and forced the craft from the air — before it could hit its intended target in Washington. The attacks set off a chain of events that led the United States into wars in Afghanistan, and then Iraq, and America’s entire intelligence apparatus was overhauled to counter the threat of more terror attacks at home. A senior administration official says Obama gave the final order for U.S. officials to go after bin Laden on Friday. The official added that a small team found their quarry hiding in a large home in an affluent suburb of Islamabad. The raid occurred in the early morning hours Sunday. Administration officials offered some details of the operation. Based on statements given by U.S. detainees, intelli-

Reprisals possible The State Department early today put U.S. embassies on alert and warned of the heightened possibility for anti-American violence after the killing of bin Laden by American forces in Pakistan. In a worldwide travel alert released shortly after President Obama late Sunday announced bin Laden’s death in a U.S. military operation, the department said there was an “enhanced potential for anti-American violence given recent counterterrorism activity in Pakistan.” “Given the uncertainty and volatility of the current situation, U.S. citizens in areas where recent events could cause anti-American violence are strongly urged to limit their travel outside of their homes and hotels and avoid mass gatherings and demonstrations,” it said.

1.5 million gather to watch pope beatify John Paul II By Nicole Winfield and Vanessa Gera Associated Press Writers

V A T I C A N C I T Y — Some 1.5 million pilgrims flooded Rome on Sunday to watch Pope John Paul II move a step closer to sainthood in one of the largest Vatican Masses in history, an outpouring of adoration for a beloved and historic f igure after years marred by church scandal. The turnout for the beatification far exceeded even the most optimistic expectation of 1 million people, the number Rome city officials predicted. For Catholics filling St. Peter’s Square and its surrounding streets, and for those watching around the world the beatification was a welcome hearkening back to the days when the pope was almost universally beloved. “He was like a king to us, like a father,” Marynka Ulaszewska, a 28-year-old from Ciechocinek, Poland, said, weeping. “I hope these emotions will remain with us for a long time.” Pope Benedict XVI praised John Paul for turning back the seemingly “irreversible” tide of communism with faith, courage and “the strength of a titan, a strength which came to him from God.” John Paul is universally credited with helping bring down communism in his native Poland with support for the Solidarity labor movement, accelerating the fall of the Iron Curtain. “He rightly reclaimed for Christianity that impulse of hope which had in some sense faltered before Marxism and the ideology of progress,” Benedict said. “He restored to Christianity its true face as a religion of hope.” John Paul’s beatification,


Key dates in al-Qaida’s reign of terror McClatchy Newspapers

WASHINGTON — A member of a wealthy Saudi family who had gone astray, Osama bin Laden began his global jihad, or holy war, more than 20 years ago. ● Around 1988, bin Laden led a loose network of Arabs in secretly forming al-Qaida or “the base,” the group through which he would declare global jihad, or holy war, on the United States and other governments. Bin Laden proclaimed those targets to be “infidels” because of their failure to abide by an extremist interpretation of Islam and for their support of Israel. He set a goal of driving U.S. armed forces out of Saudi Arabia. ● In 1992, the group coordinated bombings of two hotels in Aden, Yemen. ● In 1993, terrorists set off a van full of explosives in a parking garage beneath the

World Trade Center, killing six people and injuring more than 1,000. The FBI later found evidence that bin Laden had provided financial support to a blind sheik, Omar Abdel Rahman, who led the plot. ● An apartment fire set inadvertently by a plotter in 1994 in Manila, the Philippines, prevented the execut i o n o f a n o t h e r h u ge ly ambitious al-Qaida plan, an effort to blow up 10 passenge r j e t s i n m i d - Pa c i f i c flights. As bin Laden’s forces grew, al-Qaida set up large training camps in Afghanistan, grooming young recruits and planning sophisticated attacks that would penetrate layers of security around key targets. ● In 1998, al-Qaida operatives carried out the bombings of U.S. embassies in Nairobi, Kenya, and Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, killing

more than 200 people and injuring more than 5,000 others. ● Two years later, authorities in Jordan thwarted an alQaida plot to blow up hotels during celebrations of the millennium. ● Statements introduced at the trial of the 20th hijacker, Zacarias Moussaoui, revealed that bin Laden personally approved the group’s biggest and deadliest operation, the Sept. 11 hijackings of four U.S. jetliners that were slammed into the Trade Center, the Pentagon and the Pennsylvania countryside. Weeks later, President George W. Bush dispatched U.S. forces to drive al-Qaida out of its Afghan havens, but the troops failed to catch bin Laden and most other top commanders as they fled through the country’s mountainous Tora Bora region. Bin Laden was long believed to

have found sanctuary in friendly parts of neighboring Pakistan. Even as he fled relentless U.S. efforts to find him and kill him, bin Laden’s forces continued to strike. ● Al-Qaida has been blamed for the March 11, 2004, bombings of commuter trains in Madrid, 911 days after the Sept. 11 attacks, though al-Qaida never claimed responsibility. ● On July 7, 2005, four members of al-Qaida joined other terrorists in bombings trains in the London Underground and a double-decker bus, killing 52 people and injuring about 700 others. ● Al-Qaida devotees also have attempted to blow up U.S. jetliners by hiding bombs in their shoes and underwear. Last year, the group took credit for a plot to set off plastic explosives on U.S.-bound cargo planes in the Middle East.

the fastest in modern times, has however triggered a new wave of anger from sex-abuse victims because much of the criminality occurred during his 27-year watch. Critics also say John Paul’s legacy is clouded by evidence of a dwindling faith: empty churches in Europe, too few priests in North and South America, priests who violate their celibacy requirement in places like Africa and a general decline of Catholicism in former Christian strongholds. John Paul’s defenders argue that an entire generation of new priests owe their vocations to John Paul, and that millions of lay Catholics found their faith during the World Youth Days, which were a hallmark of his papacy. Vatican off icials have insisted that the saint-making process isn’t a judgment of how John Paul administered the church but rather whether he lived a life of Christian virtue. Benedict put John Paul on the fast-track for possible sainthood when he dispensed with the traditional five-year waiting period and allowed the beatification process to begin weeks after his April 2, 2005, death. Benedict was responding to chants of “Santo Subito!” or “Sainthood Immediately” that erupted during John Paul’s funeral. With a sea of red and white Polish flags fluttering in the square, the beatification Sunday evoked the days after the pope’s death in 2005, when some 3 million faithful held vigil under his studio window and filed past his remains for days on end. Beatification is the last major milestone before a candidate is declared a saint. John Paul needs another miracle attributed to his intercession before he can be canonized.

Benefit balance City officials must balance public and private interests as they consider incentives to restore an iconic downtown building.


irst, let it be said that it would be great to see the former Masonic Temple at the southwest corner of 10th and Massachusetts streets brought back to life. Local Masonic groups had to give up the iconic downtown building with its historic Reuter organ in 2003 when it became too expensive to maintain. Now local businesspeople are exploring ways to adapt the structure to other uses. At the top of the list currently is an idea being floated by Lawrence caterer Steve Maceli to convert the building into a reception and wedding hall. Presumably the remodeled structure also could serve as rental space for other community events. But, as Masonic officials recognized a number of years ago, refurbishing the building will take some money, and the group that owns the building, led by local businessman Doug Compton, is seeking some financial assistance in the form of tax rebates under the Neighborhood Revitalization Act. There are several ways to look at this request. Some local residents probably think that Compton and his group have deep enough pockets to take on the necessary improvements to the Masonic Temple. That may be true, but they also are businesspeople and must weigh the potential return on any investment they make. As public financial assistance goes, the tax rebates being requested are fairly attractive for both city taxpayers and the building’s owners. The owners would continue to pay property taxes on the current value of the building, but would receive a break on the additional taxes that would be based on the increased valuation that would result from improvements to the building. Their request is for a 15year rebate that would decline by 5 percent a year. Under the rebate terms, the property taxes on the building would steadily increase. If the building continues to sit vacant, the taxes will remain the same or perhaps decline. A tax rebate may be appropriate as an incentive to revitalize a notable building like the Masonic Temple. Representatives of the ownership group say they have tried to find a tenant for the building, but most potential tenants would want to significantly change the building’s interior and perhaps alter its Egyptian Revival facade. It’s probably worth something to the community as a whole to maintain the facade and the basic layout of the building, as Maceli proposes. The owners also are asking the city to consider ways it could help with the installation of a fire sprinkler system in the building. After a devastating fire in downtown Fort Scott a number of years ago, the city helped some downtown businesses add sprinkler systems. So there is some precedent for that type of assistance, but there’s also a limit to how much the city can afford to commit. It’s nice to have local businesspeople thinking creatively about how to use this building — and how needed improvements could be financed. Refurbishing the Masonic Temple would be a benefit for the public, but it also would benefit the building’s owners. The challenge for city officials is to find the proper balance between those two interests.

New taxes sometimes reduce revenues WASHINGTON — Tim Storm, an Illinois businessman until a few weeks ago, is now a Wisconsin businessman. Herewith a story about how states can reduce revenues by trying to increase them, and about the economic benefits of federalism. Storm, 42, is founder and CEO of The company, until recently one of about 9,000 Illinois “aff iliates” of, directs online shoppers to online retailers, which often pay affiliates commissions for referrals that result in sales. Storm’s company, which has 54 employees, used to be located in Rockton, Ill., but now is five miles up the road in Beloit, Wis. One reason online sales are brisk is that the retailers are not required to collect state sales taxes. In 1992, the U.S. Supreme Court held that such taxes must be collected only by companies that have a “substantial nexus” — basically, a brick-and-mortar presence — in the state. Under this rule, Amazon collects sales taxes in only five states. Illinois, comprehensively misgoverned and ravenous for revenues, has enacted what has come to be called an “Amazon tax.” It requires Amazon and other online retailers to collect the state’s sales tax. Amazon and many other retailers responded by severing their connections with their Illinois affiliates. Storm responded by relocating in Beloit. No one knows how many other Illinois affiliates of the thousands of online retailers — transactions with Ama-

Most online retailers “would, however, retain

the advantages of convenience — shoppers do not need to drive to the store — and the price advantages of not having to pay the cost of brick-and-mortar stores. But the stores have the competitive advantage of local loyalties, and customers being able to handle merchandise.”

zon are less than 1 percent of FatWallet’s business — will lose revenue, pay less in taxes, cut jobs or leave the state. When Texas sent Amazon a bill for $269 million because of the “nexus” of its Dallas warehouse, Amazon decided to close the warehouse. Hoping to turn the states’ budget crises to their advantage, Wal-Mart, Target and other large retailers are funding a coalition called Alliance for Main Street Fairness to lobby for measures —

perhaps federal legislation — to require Amazon and other online retailers to collect sales taxes. This supposedly would serve fairness by leveling the playing field. Most online retailers would, however, retain the advantages of convenience — shoppers do not need to drive to the store — and the price advantages of not having to pay the cost of brick-andmortar stores. But the stores have the competitive advantage of local loyalties, and customers being able to handle merchandise. Besides, Main Street stores pay sales taxes to support local police, fire and rescue, sewage, schools and other services. If Amazon’s Seattle headquarters catches fire, will Champaign, Ill., firefighters extinguish it? And as Boston Globe columnist Jeff Jacoby notes, “A Pennsylvania tobacco shop doesn’t collect Ohio sales taxes whenever it sells a humidor to a visitor from Ohio.” Federalism — which serves the ability of businesses to move to greener pastures — puts state and local politicians under pressure, but that is where they should be, lest they treat businesses as hostages that can be abused. According to the Tax Foundation, Illinois has not only the fourth-highest combined national-local corporate income tax in the nation, but also in the industrialized world. In Peoria, Doug Oberhelman, CEO of Caterpillar, has told Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn that he is being “wined and dined” by other governors and their representatives

encouraging Caterpillar to invest in their states. It recently picked Muncie, Ind., for a major manufacturing plant. Says Indiana’s Gov. Mitch Daniels of his neighboring state, “It’s like living next door to ‘The Simpsons’ — you know, the dysfunctional family down the block.” A study by the Illinois Policy Institute, a market-oriented think tank, concludes that between 1991 and 2009, Illinois lost more than 1.2 million residents — more than one every 10 minutes — to other states. Between 1995 and 2007, the total net income leaving Illinois was $23.5 billion. The five states receiving most refugees from Illinois were Florida, Indiana, Wisconsin, Arizona and Texas. Two are Illinois’ neighbors, three have warm weather, two — Florida and Texas — have no income tax. In January, a lameduck session of Illinois’ legislature — including 18 Democrats who were defeated in November — raised the personal income tax 67 percent and the corporate tax almost 50 percent. This and the increase — from 3 percent to 5 percent — in the tax on small businesses make Illinois, as The Wall Street Journal says, “one of the most expensive places in the world to conduct business.” Tim Storm’s presence in Beloit demonstrates how American federalism gives force to a familiar axiom: Businesses go where they are welcome and stay where they are well-treated. — George Will is a columnist for Washington Post Writers Group.



A three-bedroom house at 1741 W. 25th St. was causing a bit of conYEARS troversy in the AGO area. Nearby neighIN 1986 bor Dick Wilson had complained to county commissioners about parking problems caused by members of the House of Prayer, a charismatic church operating out of the house. The minister of the church said that the prayer house had a constitutional right to operate, while city officials said that it could not continue to operate in a residential neighborhood without getting a special variance.


In Washington, D.C., the Nixon administration was planning to wage YEARS war on wild mariAGO juana. The AgriculIN 1971 ture Department would receive an $85,000 allocation from the Justice Department, which would then be turned over to farmers to help pay costs of eradicating marijuana "growing wild in farm fields and hedge rows across 10 states, mostly in the Midwest." There had been no official announcement of the plan, which was acknowledged by Agriculture Department officials only after repeated questioning from a reporter. The campaign was tentatively named WHEP, or Wild Hemp Elimination Program.


ECM influence To the editor: Shortly after coming to Kansas University in 1969, I learned of and became associated with Ecumenical Christian Ministries (ECM) near the campus. First and foremost, ECM was a space where students and others could search their faiths, question their faiths and live their faiths in an open and inviting atmosphere. In the ’70s, ECM became a safe space for those seeking and advocating for racial equality, for those who had deep convictions regarding the war in Vietnam and for those who were seeking a voice for the LGBT community. Violence was right outside of the door, but never invaded the ECM building. Over the years, it has continued to be a place where all voices can be heard, where questioning is valued and encouraged, where knowledge is valued and where difference and diversity will find a safe place. ECM is about to complete its capital campaign to provide improvements to its facility and insure the presence of ECM in the lives of students and the Lawrence community for the future. It is an anchor in the lives of many students and a continuing presence for many people in Lawrence. I would encourage anyone who values ECM and cares for its role in the communi-

Taproot isn’t a doom-andgloom metal band, choosing instead to write songs about subjects more typical of rock music or even pop. Break-ups, bad decisions and regret all get the heavy guitar treatment with Taproot, and the result is a small but dedicated following for a band that tours regularly and releases albums, on average, on a two-year schedule.

Buyers find bargains at Treece auction ONLINE: See ‘Mining’s Legacy: A Scar on Kansas’ at

TREECE (AP) — An auction of dozens of properties in the former Kansas mining town of Treece on Saturday brought in a little less than $27,000 that will go into a community buyout fund. The sale, conducted by the Treece Relocation Assistance Trust, included about 30 houses, mobile homes and other structures that the trust had purchased from owners in a voluntary federal buyout. The Joplin Globe reports many of the structures, including Jesus Name Pentecostal Church, sold for $50 or less. The Environmental Protection Agency has allotted $3.5 million to relocate Treece residents who want to leave. The town, like Picher just across the state line in Oklahoma, is contaminated with mine waste that accumulated over several decades of lead and zinc mining. Sam Freeman, who lived in Picher, Okla., for 50 years and was a former city councilman, mayor and volunteer firefighter, bought the church for $50. He said he plans to give the pews to another church and sell what he can from inside the building.

Football schedule brutal The best way to appreciate just how brutal a schedule Kansas University faces in the fall is to consider that nine of its 12 opponents played in bowl games last season, and Texas is one of the three that didn’t. The Jayhawks looked more organized and faster in Saturday’s annual spring football game in Memorial Stadium, but the competition they faced can’t measure up to what awaits. An argument could be made KU has the nation’s toughest schedule. The reduction of the Big 12 to 10 teams means that Kansas plays nine conference games and now faces the four Texas and two Oklahoma teams every year. Sure, every Big 12 team plays the same schedule. Sort of. But KU’s slate is more challenging than Oklahoma’s because Kansas has to play Oklahoma and the Sooners don’t, and Oklahoma gets to play Kansas and the Jayhawks don’t. A look at the 12 foes in the order KU plays them: McNeese State: No chance Kansas loses this one with the memory of North Dakota State so fresh. Northern Illinois: Dave Doren, once an assistant to Mark Mangino before he left for Wisconsin and gained a reputation as an excellent defensive coordinator and recruiter, landed his first head-coaching job. The ambitious Doren inherits a team that went 11-3 with an explosive offense. NIU averaged 65 points in a three-game November stretch against MidAmerican foes Toledo, Ball State and Eastern Michigan, and quarterback Chandler Harnish returns. At Georgia Tech: Home-field advantage and the revenge factor make this a huge mountain to climb. Texas Tech: As is Gill, Tommy Tuberville is in his second season after a controversial firing of his predecessor. Tuberville has more talent, but Gill has the home-field advantage. At Oklahoma State: Quarterback Brandon Weeden and wide receiver Justin Blackmon are back for a Cowboys offense that amassed 597 yards in Lawrence last season. Oklahoma: All but two starters return from the nation’s 10th-ranked offense, and the Sooners should have an offensive line that manhandles all but the best defensive lines. OU will be a popular national-title pick. Kansas State: Daniel Thomas is gone, but Bryce Brown, the transfer from Tennessee out of Wichita who was ranked the No. 1 running back in the nation in high school, has a chance to be just as good. At Texas: Freshman Malcolm Brown, fast and 220 pounds, has a legitimate shot to be the Longhorns’ best running back since Jamaal Charles. At Iowa State: If the Jayhawks aren’t too beaten up from the previous week’s game at Texas, the Jayhawks could win this one, but it’s an unfortunate scheduling quirk that they have to play it on the road for a second consecutive season. Baylor: Robert Griffin III is back directing the offense that torched KU for 680 yards a year ago. At Texas A&M: Good guy Mike Sherman was an unconventional choice when hired, but it sure has worked out. The Aggies won six in a row before losing to LSU in the Cotton Bowl. Vs. Missouri at Arrowhead: The underdog is always a threat to win this one.

DREAM VISION’S SHABAZZ MUHAMMAD, LEFT, DRIVES past Colorado Hawks’ Chris Thomas (23) in the championship game of the Jayhawk Invitational. Dream Vision won, 94-85, Sunday at Haskell’s Coffin Complex.

Ballyhooed recruits live up to hype By Gary Bedore

Shabazz Muhammad, the No. 3ranked basketball player in the recruiting Class of 2012, and Chris Thomas, the No. 4 prospect in the Class of 2013, lived up to the hype in Sunday’s finals of the Jayhawk Invitational at Haskell’s Coffin Complex. Muhammad, a 6-foot-5, 210pound junior from Las Vegas’ Bishop Gorman High, exploded for 36 points in Dream Vision’s 94-85 title victory over the Colorado Hawks and super 6-4, 180pound Phoenix Westwind Prep

Academy sophomore Thomas, who netted 35. “Chris is outstanding. It was my first time playing against him. I was really impressed,” said Muhammad, who was named MVP of the Invitational. “If he keeps it up, he’ll be playing at the highest level.” Both players have Kansas University on their list of prospective colleges. “Shabazz is amazing. I’ll give him that. He is good,” said Thomas, who made the all-tournament team. “He came out not missing a shot in the first half. The second half, he finally missed some shots.”

Muhammad scored 21 points the first half in helping Dream Vision to a 50-36 advantage. Thomas erupted for 25 points the final half in leading a furious rally that knotted the score at 79 with about six minutes left. Muhammad broke the tie with a vicious slam dunk, and Dream Vision managed to stay in front the rest of the way. “I think I showed it a lot,” Muhammad said, asked if he demonstrated the ability to dominate in crunch time. Earlier he had 32 points in a 76-69 quarterfinal Please see RECRUITS, page 3B

KANSAS CITY, MO. (AP) — Mike Aviles played his way to the Kansas City bench early in the season by going hitless in 18 consecutive at-bats. That was then. It would be difficult to pry Aviles out of the Royals lineup now. Aviles had three hits, including a homer, and drove in four runs to help the Kansas City Royals beat the Minnesota Twins, 103, on Sunday. “I was never worried,” Aviles said of his early skid. “Maybe other people were worried. I wasn’t. I know myself. I know I have confidence in myself. I know what I’m capable of doing at this level. I know I can help the team win.” “I don’t think I ever was asleep. I just started off slow. Basically if you think about it, you’re going to have slumps during the course of the year. Mine was just at the start of the year and that’s why everybody noticed. I went through the same thing last year, but nobody noticed because it was later in the year.” Minnesota fell to nine games below .500 for the first time since finishing the 2000 season 69-93. The Twins fell 10 games behind the division-leading Cleveland Indians, which is the farthest they have been out of first since finishing 17 games out in 2007. Aviles, who matched his career high with four RBIs, hit a three-run homer in the eighth off Twins reliever Dusty Hughes, a former Royal. Aviles’ single in the two-run sixth scored Mitch Maier, who had tripled. “I love Dusty to death.” Aviles said. “We’re really good friends. We got drafted together (in 2002). We played all the way through the minor leagues. It’s like bittersweet. I feel bad, but it’s just part of the game.” Luke Hochevar (3-3), who gave 1 up 12 runs in 12 ⁄3 innings in losing his previous two starts, held the Twins to five hits and three 1 runs in 6 ⁄3 innings. ● Box score on page 3B


NFL on DE Opurum’s radar By Matt Tait

ONLINE: For a look back at some of the players and plays that stood out at the spring game, log on to and check out the latest edition of Matt Tait’s “Tale of the Tait” blog.

A football fan in every way, Kansas University junior-to-be Toben Opurum paid close attention to last weekend’s NFL Draft.

On Thursday, Opurum saw Texas A&M’s Von Miller get drafted with the second overall pick by the Denver Broncos. Two days later, the defensive end hit the field at Memorial Stadium determined to take the first step in following in Miller’s footsteps. Both are undersized, passrushing athletes, and Opurum said after Saturday’s spring game he was well aware of the similarities between him and Miller.

“(Defensive line) Coach (Buddy) Wyatt brings him up here and there because we’re similar in size and how we play,” said Opurum, who stands 6-foot-1, 240 pounds, compared to Miller’s frame of 6-3, 243. “Obviously, someone who goes No. 2 in the Nick Krug/Journal-World Photo draft is someone I can try to mold myself after and watch and see KANSAS DEFENSIVE END TOBEN OPURUM (35) how he plays and do that myself.” leaves the field after greeting former teammate Kerry Meier following the Kansas Spring Game Please see OPURUM, page 3B Saturday at Memorial Stadium.

Heat-Celtics drama has just begun

Heat win; Pierce ejected

By Greg Cote McClatchy Newspapers

MIAMI — Just when aching exhaustion was ready to swallow him, Dwyane Wade raced the length of the court late in the game Sunday to chase a pass he had no hope of reaching, only to find his brakes didn’t work. He dove head first into the white-clad home crowd, landing five rows in, momentarily engulfed by shocked fans who weren’t sure whether to lurch out of the way or try to make a franchise-saving catch. Wade emerged limping. It wasn’t an injury. “Just tired,” the Heat star would say afterward. “At that moment I was spent.” It was a snapshot to remind you why this young man is Miami’s most special and most beloved sports star ever except Dan Marino, and that gap narrows with every spectacle like this one. Mario Chalmers had launched the long pass late in the game. “I was mad at ’Rio for throwing it, I’m not going to lie,” Wade said — except he was smiling. He’d earned that smile. Earned the exhaustion, too. Wade’s 38 points and whirling-dervish defense made sure the Heat won Game 1 of this NBA second-round playoff series vs. Boston, 99-90, with that late launch into the crowd well representing the maniacal intensity we can expect in this series. Well, that and Sunday’s boiling emotions and flying elbows, flagrant fouls and double-technicals, scowls and angry words, the (very nearly a) head-butt and the ejection of Celtics star Paul Pierce. Otherwise, a pretty uneventful game. Best of all? This drama, this brutal ballet, has just begun. Ain’t it great!? This had to be one of the most anticipated home games in the club’s 23-year history. Surely this franchise hasn’t had a playoff series torqued up this high, full of this much animus, since Heat-Knicks in the 1997 series punctuated by an on-court brawl, suspensions and then-coach Jeff Van Gundy latched poodle-like onto the pistoning leg of Alonzo Mourning. Sunday’s version of that lunacy included James Jones with a hard foul against Pierce, and Pierce getting in his grill and bumping his head into Jones’ face. That was just before Wade plowed hard into a screen set by Pierce, who barked profanities at Wade and found himself ejected with seven minutes left for his second technical foul. Somebody asked Wade later what Pierce had said to him. “Ah, a bunch of gibberish,” said Wade with a wink in his voice. Whatever NBA “playoff intensity” means, it began to redefine itself here Sunday. Heat-Celtics owns the marquee and the market on vitriol because this is Boston’s proud, aging past champions trying to maintain control of the Eastern Conference against Miami’s Big 3 — a team that came together to beat this very opponent. The 10 months since LeBron James’ “Decision” have all led to this day, to this series, after an 82-game regular season and then a five-game first-round dispatch of Philadelphia cleared away all the obstacles. The six months since Miami opened this season in Boston, losing, have been a precursor to this series. That’s a lot of inevitability, a lot of anticipation. Sunday, it was worth the wait. “This is personal,” said James of this opponent. Maybe he had that in mind when, after a hard foul by Ray Allen in the third quarter left James sprawled face down past the end-line, he theatrically did a few pushups before hopping to his feet. The Celtics won three of four this season and had won 18 of the past 21 against Miami entering Sunday. They were the champions this Heat team was built to be. “Our big brothers,” Wade had called them. Could be time for a power shift. Could be time for the little brothers to start running the family. There are six future Hall of Famers in this series, maybe more. Sunday’s crowd included rap stars Diddy, Drake and Rick Ross. Wade was the biggest star in the house — HIS house, still, even with LeBron here now. Remember back when so many people seemed to worry whether the superstars Wade and James could coexist? Sunday was another example proving they could, and do. “I know I don’t have to average 30 points,” said James. “We have other options.” Wade, at his elbow during the postgame news conference, smiled again. “That’s the reason why we’re playing together,” he said. For this. For the Celtics, and beyond.

The Associated Press

Heat 99, Celtics 90 MIAMI — Dwyane Wade knew his regular-season numbers against Boston were lacking. He also knew that wouldn’t matter in the playoffs. And Game 1 — which seemed more like Round 1 — of what’s already an emotionally charged series went to Wade and the Miami Heat. Wade scored 38 points on 14of-21 shooting, James Jones set a Miami postseason record with 25 points off the bench, and the Heat beat the Celtics on Sunday to open their Eastern Conference semifinal series. “We’re going to have to fight for every inch, every game we get,” Wade said. “Right now, we won Game 1. We’re supposed to. We’ll go back and focus on winning Game 2. We’re at home, we have home-court advantage. They’re just trying to come in and steal one like they’ve done in the past. So it’s our job to come out with the same mentality in the next one.” LeBron James finished with 22 points, six rebounds and five assists for Miami, which led by as many as 19 before a fiery finish that saw plenty of players jawing at each other — more than that in some cases. Paul Pierce was ejected with seven minutes left, after picking up two technicals in skirmishes with Wade and Jones within a span of 59 seconds. Ray Allen scored 25 points for Boston, which lost for the first time in five games this postseason. Pierce scored 19, and Delonte West finished with 10 for the Celtics, while Rajon Rondo and Kevin Garnett were held to a combined 14 points on 6-for-19 shooting. “There’s so many things we need to do to get better,” Allen said. “I think everybody in that locker room knows that, just from a small conversation we just had.” Game 2 is Tuesday in Miami.

Miami last season and ended James’ playoff runs with Cleveland in 2008 and 2010, these teams have history — and more than a bit of dislike, and that was apparent. It was physical throughout, with West earning a technical and Jermaine O’Neal picking up a flagrant foul along the way, before things really got hot in the fourth. Pierce took offense with a hard foul by Jones, each getting double-technicals there, and Pierce and Wade — who have a bit of history themselves — renewed acquaintances not long after that. Referee Ed Malloy called both for double-technicals, and Pierce was screaming as he departed. Boston coach Doc Rivers said he thought Jones and Wade went at Pierce too aggressively on the two plays that ended his forward’s night.

Bulls’ Thibodeau wins NBA Coach of Year BOXING Boxer who knocked down Ali dies LONDON — Former heavyweight boxer Henry Cooper, one of Britain’s most popular sportsmen who was best known for knocking down Muhammad Ali while he was still known as Cassius Clay, died Sunday. He was 76. The first boxer to be knighted and receive the title “Sir” from a British monarch, Cooper died just two days before his 77th birthday, the British Boxing Board of Control said. He died at his son’s house in Oxted, Surrey, in southern England, after an extended illness. “I am at a loss for words over the death of my friend, Henry Cooper,” Ali said in a statement. Cooper floored Ali, then an up-and-coming contender named Clay, in a 1963 non-title fight at Wembley Stadium.

How former Jayhawks fared

Grizzlies 114, Thunder 101 OKLAHOMA CITY — Zach Randolph had 34 points and 10 rebounds, Marc Gasol added 20 points and 13 boards, and Memphis overpowered Oklahoma City inside in the opening game of the Western Conference semifinals. Just as they did in a firstround upset of top-seeded San Antonio, Randolph and Gasol provided enough punch to give eighth-seeded Memphis a road victory in Game 1. Randolph and Gasol each scored 20 points in the same regular-season game only once this season, but did it in Game 1 against the Spurs and again to negate the Thunder’s homecourt advantage right from the start. Game 2 is Tuesday night in Oklahoma City. Kevin Durant led the Thunder with 33 points and 11 rebounds. Russell Westbrook scored 29, but the All-Star tandem couldn’t overcome a big advantage in the paint for Memphis.

DEERFIELD ILL. — Tom Thibodeau waited about two decades to become an NBA head coach. It didn’t take him long to be recognized as one of the best once he got the chance. Thibodeau is the NBA’s Coach of the Year after leading the Chicago Bulls to 62 wins in his first season to tie a league record set by Paul Westphal. The Chicago Tribune first reported Thibodeau’s selection, which was no surprise the way the Bulls dominated during the regular season. Now, after a tough five-game series against Indiana in the opening round, they’ll open the Eastern Conference semifinals against Atlanta today. “After being here for a year, I realize how fortunate I am to be here,” Thibodeau said. “It’s a great city, great fans, great organization, great players, and if it meant waiting 20 years to get this job, it was well worth the wait.”

All-tourney talk: Joining Muhammad, Thomas and Upshaw on the all tourney team were: Marcus Smart, 6-4 junior, Texas Assault; Mitch McGary, 6-10 junior, SYF Players; and Marcus Holt, 6-9 junior, Colorado Hawks. ●

Lacey says he’ll reschedule: Trevor Lacey, a 6-3 senior guard from Butler High in Huntsville, Ala., who did not make his official visit to KU over the weekend as originally planned, will visit before the May 18 end of the spring signing period, Lacey’s dad told on Sunday. The country’s No. 24 rated player is considering KU, Kentucky, Alabama and Auburn. ●

Koenig nets KU offer: One of the top players in the 16and-under portion of the invitational was Bronson Koenig, 6-2 soph point guard from Aquinas High in LaCrosse, Wis. Koenig, who starred for Wisconsin Playground Warriors, has been offered a scholarship at KU, his AAU coach told ●

Recruits win over SYF Players. “Just playing, getting my teammates involved. Getting this championship is just sweet.” Thomas had a crowd of about 200 fans buzzing while connecting on four straight threes during the Hawks’ second-half comeback. “Man, I thought I was going to knock one down to end the game like that,” Thomas said. “It happens. We lost. It’s OK.” Joe Rahon, a sweet-shooting 6-foot junior from San Diego’s Torrey Pines, who according to has received an offer from Boston College, scored 21 points, including a three off a feed from Muhammad that gave Dream Vision an 84-80 lead. As far as the three other Dream Vision players who are considering KU ... ■ Robert Upshaw, a 6-10 junior from Edison High in Fresno, Calif., scored 11 points. ■ Winston Shepard, 6-8 junior from Findlay Prep High in Henderson, Nev., had nine points. ■ Ishmail Wainright, 6-5 sophomore from Raytown (Mo.) South, had four points. Upshaw, who is ranked No. 111 in the Class of 2012, made the all-tournament team. He had 14 blocks in Saturday’s victory over the Kansas Mustangs. “If I become a more mobile player, I become one of the best players in the country,” the 250-pound Upshaw said. “I can’t get up and down the floor as well as other players can, so that’s what I’m trying to focus on. When I get up and down the floor, I rebound well, block shots well and score well.” He said he’s committed to “running on the track with my strength and conditioning coach at my high school and just playing ball.” Upshaw — he said he has heard from coaches from KU, Maryland, Oregon and Tennessee lately — said his goal is to resemble NBA standout Dwight Howard. “I want to be the type player where I get the ball in the post and storm through a guy,” Upshaw said. I don’t necessarily say I can be athletic as him. I just want to be that type of player.” Regarding the recruitment of Sunday’s star performers, Muhammad, who is being pursued by KU, Duke, North Carolina, Kentucky, Texas, UCLA, UNLV, Arizona, USC and many others, said he’d definitely like to make a visit to KU. Thomas said though it’s early in the process, KU will be high on his list. He’s been offered a scholarship by the KU staff. “All my family is from Kansas. Kansas is good for me. I like Kansas,” said Thomas, who also has mentioned Arizona, Kentucky, Memphis, Indiana, Tennessee, Washington, Oregon State, Washington State, Missouri and Colorado.

TEXAS A&M FRESHMAN AMBER GARZA circles the bases after hitting a grand slam. The Aggies slammed Kansas, 13-0, Sunday at Arrocha Ballpark.

A&M completes sweep of Kansas By Clark Goble Journal-World Sports Writer

Saturday, Kansas University’s softball team expended a lot of energy mounting a seventh-inning rally against No. 21 Texas A&M. So Sunday, when the Jayhawks fell behind again, they just couldn’t generate the drive to start a comeback. In their final regular-season Big 12 game, the Jayhawks lost to the Aggies, 13-0, in a run-rule-shortened f ive innings at Arrocha Ballpark. “We didn’t come out as aggressive as we did yesterday,” KU third baseman Marissa Ingle said. “We kind of lacked the want-to and the extra oomph before the game.” Kansas finishes its Big 12 schedule with a 2-16 record, picking up single victories against Texas Tech and Iowa State. The Aggies seized their run opportunities, tallying three runs in the second inning on a three-run homer by pitcher Mel Dumezich. An inning later, the Aggies put up a sixspot, capped by a grand slam by third baseman Amber Garza. Texas A&M didn’t relent, either, scoring three runs in the fourth inning and another in the fifth. KU starting pitcher Allie Clark (13-9) said it was difficult to keep spirits up when the talented Aggies capitalized on nearly every chance.


Last weekend, Opurum proved that to be possible. Finally settled into a position he can call home, Opurum, now a full-fledged defensive end, finished with two tackles and a sack in the scrimmage. Those numbers don’t provide a proper read on Opurum’s day. He delivered constant pressure on the edge and demonstrated to the 6,000 fans in attendance that he had figured out how to play on the defensive line. Last year at this time, Opurum still was a running back. The former ball carrier who was recruited to Notre Dame as a fullback and led the Jayhawks in rushing as a true freshman finished last year’s spring game with 16 yards on seven carries. At that time, it was believed that a healthy Opurum was poised for a big season. It never came. Midway through preseason camp he was moved to linebacker. A few months later, he was moved again to defensive end. Originally frustrated by the shifts, Opurum reached the point where he used that frustration on the field. Today, the anger’s gone and in its place is the kind of determination that has other Jayhawks talking big about the junior from Plano, Texas. “I think Toben’s definitely a guy that’s going to be reckoned with in the Big 12,” KU coach Turner Gill said. “I think he’s a guy that people are going to be talking about as time goes along, throughout the season and the rest of his career.” Added KU quarterback Jordan Webb: “He’s definitely come a long way, and he’s gonna be one of our best play-

“It only takes one pitch,” Clark said. “That’s what sucks as a pitcher. You make one mistake, but that happens.” Coach Megan Smith sent Clark to the circle for the second day in a row, hoping that Clark would build on the success she had Saturday. The Jayhawks (31-22) will take on Drake in a home doubleheader at 5 p.m. Thursday, starting a unusual threeseries stretch of nonconference games to end the season.

ers. He’s one of those guys with unlimited potential. He’s got a good motor, and he’s got all the tools.” Asked how it felt to hear coaches and teammates heave such high praise his way, Opurum was honest. “I don’t even get to hear stuff like that,” he said with a laugh. “My conf idence is always going to be high, but the fact that other people are taking notice and my teammates realize it as well, it definitely feels good to know that.” There are more than a couple of reasons why Opurum has transformed from project to producer, gamble to gamer in less than a year. Drive and determination are at the top of the list. But not far behind are attention to detail and sound technique. “I think being able to turn the corner and using his hands,” Gill said when asked to name two of Opurum’s biggest strengths. “There’s a little knack of being able to come off the edge, being able to lean and still have a burst and a quickness to come around the edge on an offensive tackle. And that’s one area he really has improved. He’s going to continue to get better and better.” He’s also going to continue to become more comfortable. Whether he’s standing up, ready to rip off a speed rush or down in a three-point stance eager to pop with power, Opurum again feels like he’s playing where he belongs. “My coaches have made it easy for me,” he said. “They’ve simplified the game and let me basically just use all my effort to make plays. This is my spot. I’m settled in. But we’ve got competition going every day so I can’t get complacent. Every day I’m out here working hard with my teammates.”

The letter from “Love Mama My In-Laws, But” gave me a big laugh. Obviously that “gracious hostess” is not Italian. In my family, a snack is usually a seven-course meal, and we always urge our guests — Please e-mail your questions says I’m “just the stepmom” to eat, eat, eat!

How should I deal with this problem that ACROSS won’t go away? — Irrelevant 1 Night birds Mommy children have not had counseling, please consider it. And give them extra doses of affection, attention and stability. They need you to be their rock.

Marcy Sugar and Kathy Mitchell

Dear Mommy: Those children desperately want their mother’s love and will eventually realize that it comes with strings attached. Until then, let your husband handle all problems so you don’t become the target of her manipulations. Keep a record of any damaging behavior, missed visits, drug use, etc., which your husband should report to his attorney. If the

‘Taboo’ goes in search of the bizarre As cable networks proliferate, we’ve seen both a glut of imitation and a search for the ever-more peculiar, a focus on the odd that is itself a form of imitation. National Geographic gives TLC a run for the money with “Taboo” (7 p.m., National Geographic). Technically, the behaviors on display here are not so much taboo as downright eccentric. The search for the bizarre, the weird and the gross predates the cable era. Way back in the early 1960s, moviegoers flocked to “Mondo cane” and other “Mondo” documentaries featuring shocking human behavior and strange rites and rituals from around the globe. The show’s first hour focuses on body and beauty obsessions, some taken to fatal extremes. In Paris, a model starves herself to a weight of merely 55 pounds before expiring from the effort. A Texas woman pays for breast enlargements that have taken her to something measured as a Triple-K cup. And down under in Australia, a woman no longer needs to wear a corset because she’s had one sewn into her flesh. A second “Taboo” (9 p.m.) explores fantasy lives that transcend the ordinary. A Japanese kickboxer enjoys dressing as characters out of animation; a Florida father divides his time between his real flesh-and-blood family and his world of amorous avatars. And the next time you call someone a “big baby,” you have to check out a California man who has commissioned adult-sized high chairs and other nursery furniture and lives his days in a diaper, sucking on a pacifier. ● “American Experience” (8 p.m., PBS, check local listings) repeats “Roads to Memphis” a powerful recounting of the separate-but-linked paths of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., and his convicted killer James Earl Ray. For reasons as cruel as history, slain leaders are always linked with their murderers. Booth and Lincoln; Oswald and Kennedy; King and Ray. King’s story is as well known as it has been well-documented. The loner Ray is more difficult to evoke on screen. But this visual deficiency inspires a stark, minimalist and almost poetic use of still photographs and various props. We’re shown the transistor radio Ray carried with him, hoping to hear of his criminal exploits and resulting notoriety and celebrity.

Tonight’s other highlights ● Cuddy’s mother (Candice Bergen) meddles on “House” (7 p.m., Fox). ● “Dancing with the Stars” (7 p.m., ABC) continues. ● Sophia pulls the strings on “The Event” (8 p.m., NBC). ● The case against Gibbons gathers strength on “The Chicago Code” (8 p.m., Fox). On three repeats of “Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations” (Travel), Japan (7 p.m.) Haiti (8 p.m.) and Prague (9 p.m.). ● A swimsuit issue photo shoot becomes a crime scene on “Hawaii Five0” (9 p.m., CBS). ● A bank robber employs a personal touch on “Law & Order: Los Angeles” (9 p.m., NBC). ● A hunt gets personal for Beckett on “Castle” (9 p.m., ABC).

Tonight: Not alone. Sagittarius (Nov. 22Dec. 21) ★★★ You have a lot to

give, but use care with exactly what you choose. On some level, you might not be comfortable with the cost of a project, whether it impacts your budget or not. Tonight: Squeeze in some exercise. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) ★★★ Your ability to see the big picture marks your decisions. You will need to use this gift. Empathize and walk in others' shoes, and you'll come up with a solution. Tonight: Choose some mind candy to relax. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) ★★★★★ You might need to rethink a personal matter carefully. Your family and home might need another look. Have you been taking certain aspects for granted? Tonight: Consider a new beginning with a roommate or another domestic matter. Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) ★★★ Realize how important your opinions are. Someone listens to you with attentively. Be willing to give that back to others. Tonight: Hang out with a friend. — The astrological forecast should be read for entertainment only.

Dear Annie: When I married my husband, I suddenly became a full-time stepmother to his three young children, all under age 5. Their mother would pop up when it was convenient for her. She rarely called on their birthdays and often left them waiting for scheduled visits. I raised those children, and they called me “Mommy.” Now, after 10 years, the mother has returned and plans to stick around. This woman is irresponsible, immature and impossible to reason with. There have been many problems, including drug use around the kids. They are afraid to upset her for fear she will abandon them again. I understand their worries. She has threatened on more than one occasion to walk out on them if they tell their father about her drug use. She leaves them alone for hours or brings them around people the kids do not feel comfortable with. She tells the kids that my husband kept her from seeing them all those years, which is patently untrue. He has gone out of his way to make sure they have some sort of relationship. I truly try my best to stay out of the middle even though I don’t feel she behaves in the best interests of the children. She

ew things look more vulnerable than a fledgling bird or other wild spring baby. Their flyaway feathers don’t look finished. Their exposed nests don’t seem practical. Many people can’t resist the urge to step in and offer the “help” they’re sure the animal needs. If you’re tenderhearted, you have to brace yourself through the entire month of May when the whole world turns into a nursery. The cardinal rule is that a wild animal stands the best chance of survival with its parents. You just can’t pass on the skills, wild foods and natural defenses it receives from them. Even if you don’t kill the animal in the process of trying to save it, you could cause it to lose its natural fear or, worse, cause it to imprint on humans, or associate them as kin. In this case, the animal isn’t releasable, and, in Kansas and most other states, it’s illegal to keep wild animals. As a volunteer wildlife rehabilitator, I’ve learned to fight some of my own misguided instincts and step in only when absolutely necessary. I hope this column will help you do the same. Myth: No baby bird belongs on the ground. Fact: Baby birds must eventually leave the nest. Though they may seem like fluffy Oliver Twists, fledglings are moving on to the next phase of their lives. Technically, they aren’t great flyers, but most can flutter to cover. Except in the rare event that something has happened to both parents, these little guys are being fed and cared for. Often, all it takes is for a human to step in to “help” to flush parents into the open.


GO green Your job, should you choose to accept it, is to make sure your own or neighbors’ cats and dogs don’t bother it. If you can give them a day or two, fledglings will be fine. Myth: Parents will reject a baby bird touched by humans. Fact: Few birds have a sense of smell. If you’re sure one has fallen from the nest after a storm, for example, you can put them back. If the nest is destroyed, you can even create a new one out of a shallow butter tub with holes punched in the bottom for drainage and secure it in the tree. Trust me, the parents will find them. Myth: Any baby rabbit without a parent

nearby has been abandoned. Fact: Mother rabbits generally visit at dawn and dusk. The rest of the time, they’re out eating, and the babies are doing what they do best: sleeping. Again, your job is to keep domestic animals and lawn mowers away from the nest. All that’s needed is a little time and quiet for babies to mature. If you’re still not convinced, lay two pieces of string in an X over the nest and check back in about 12 hours to see if mom has pushed them out of the way. Myth: A baby squirrel on the ground is doomed. Fact: Again, unless you see visible signs of injury, the baby may have crawled out of the nest or, in the case of a storm, the nest may have been destroyed. Most likely mom is nearby and doing what she can to address its ear-splitting whistles of protest. Again, your task is to watch and wait. If mom hasn’t retrieved the baby within several hours, you may want to step in. If all else has failed and you need to intervene, here are some steps to follow: ● First contact a licensed wildlife rehabilitator like me or call Northeast Kansas Wildlife Rescue at (785) 575-1981 or Operation Wildlife at (785) 542-3625 for advice. ● Secure the animal in a small box that will let in air and place the box half on/half off of a heating pad set on low in the quietest room of your house. ● Don’t give the animal food or water and avoid handling it. — Kelly Barth can be reached at

SLICE of Life



allen apples fueled Marty Pattin’s dreams. The great All-Star baseball pitcher who won 114 games with five different American League clubs in three different decades and coached Kansas University’s baseball team in the ’80s, birthed his talent as a 7-year-old in a Charleston, Ill., orchard. “I lived with my grandparents who were pretty poor. One of my chores was gathering ripened apples,” he says. “I put a target on the shed and peppered it with apples. I pretended I was Whitey Ford striking out Mickey Mantle. That became my guiding dream.” Life was tough for young Pattin. He walked 3 miles to school daily, washed dishes in exchange for lunch, then started a paper route at 8. He played street baseball, but his cousins wouldn’t let him pitch. “That made me more determined than ever,” he says. “I kept pitching those apples.” Pattin’s Charleston High School coach, Mervin Baker, encouraged him to conduct himself well, be a good person as well as a good player, and introduced him to local businessman Walt Warmoth. “Walt became my surrogate father,” Pattin says. “I worked in his restaurant for eight years. He financed my college education and encouraged me throughout my life. I owe so much to him and Mervin.” He played for Eastern Illinois Universi-

One scout told Pattin he wasn’t big enough for a pitcher. “I said: ‘Well, sir, I guess I’ll just have to make you eat your words one day.’ I became more determined than ever to

achieve my dream,” Pattin says. “I wasn’t tall and didn’t pitch at 100 mph, but I was accurate and steady. I had great control, used my head and could pitch to different spots.” He married his first wife, Vera, in 1964, graduated from EIU with a bachelor’s

degree in physical education and a master’s in industrial technology. In May 1968, shortly after signing for the California Angels, he faced the Yankees’ Mickey Mantle. “I saw Mantle in front of me and couldn’t stop shaking,” Pattin says. “I worked him 3-2 then asked myself what got me here. I thought it’s me or him. I struck him out. What a thrill. My childhood dream came true.” He went on to play for the Seattle Pilots (later the Milwaukee Brewers), Boston Red Sox and Kansas City Royals from 1974-80. He’s No. 53 on the Royals’ 100 greatest alltime list. Pattin coached KU’s baseball team from 1981-87, followed by two-year stints with the Toronto Blue Jays and Lucky Gold Star Twins in Seoul, South Korea. He returned to Lawrence in 1993. Despite losing two wives to cancer (Vera died in 1995, Joy in 2009) and having knee and hip replacement surgeries, Pattin considers himself blessed, remains upbeat and continues to give back to the community. He participates in baseball fantasy camps, encourages young players, and cherishes time spent with his children and grandchildren. “It’s important to support kids,” he says. “I made something out of my life because people had faith in me.”

SWEET PARTNERS Chocolate wine trend finds Lawrence fan base BY CHANSI LONG


andy is dandy, but chocolate wine really seems to get taste buds in an uproar. Never heard of chocolate wine? Chances are you will. Due to the products’ peaking popularity, more area store owners are stocking shelves with the chocolate-infused beverage. “In the last year it’s really taken off,” says Scott Schmidtberger, manager of Alvin’s Wine and Spirits, 4000 W. Sixth St. “I wouldn’t drink a lot of it. This is a dessert wine, and I would treat it like a dessert. A little bit goes a long way as it definitely has more calories in it than a regular wine.” Some varieties of chocolate wine look like Yoo-Hoo or malty chocolate milk. Many brands barely even resemble wine, the chocolate-infused version having a thicker consistency than regular wine- — and a much sweeter taste. The overly sweet flavor occurs because chocolatewine vintners typically don’t allow the yeast consume all of

the sugar in the wine in order to counteract the bitterness, which is characteristic of both chocolate and wine. Combining chocolate with wine is tricky because both ingredients contain tannin, a plant and astringent. Tannin is the bitter component that creates a dry, puckery feeling in the mouth, dissolving saliva instantly. “They are two chemically complex things that have the great ability to clash,” says Steve Wilson, co-manager of the City Wine Market, 4821 W. Sixth St. So to get past the tannin issue, some wine makers leave lots of sugar in the wine before mixing in the chocolate, he says. And this approach creates a caloriepacked liquid that has more viscosity than normal wine. “These really aren’t wines,” Wilson says. “It has wine in it, but I definitely wouldn’t call it wine. It’s more like a liqueur.” City Wine currently sells Trentadue Chocolate Amore, a chocolate-infused port wine. In

order to mix the chocolate with the wine, Trentadue vintners used Merlot because it’s less tannic. Other vintners use white wine for the same reason. Chocolate wines generally fall into two camps. Some are port-style wines, which are dark red and have, if done right, a rich, dark chocolate taste. An example would be Rosenblum Cellars’ Desiree dessert wine. The other style mixes cream into the wine, creating a sort of adult milk shake. Cocoa di Vine falls into the latter category, though it’s a little different in that it is based on a blend of white wines, including torrontes, moscato and Pedro Ximenez, a sherry grape. Cocoa di Vine can be found at Cork & Barrel, 901 Miss., though a year ago chocolate wine wasn’t selling at all locally, says Brendan Dowdle, store manager. Recently, though, people have begun to show more interest in the beverage. The store added two new chocolate flavors to its wine inventory at the launch of the year: Cocoa di Vine and Chocovine. Because of successful sales for February and March, Cork and Barrel is ordering new shipments of chocolate wine now. And holidays are not responsible for the pickup in sales, Dowdle says.

“It’s almost random,” he says. “We didn’t sell a single bottle on Valentine’s Day.” Alvin’s Wine has several varieties of chocolate wine for sale: Coco DiVine, Chocolate Shop, Chocovine and Sweet Sunset Red Chocolate. City Wine has limited its chocolateinfused products because Wilson says he likes to keep products as organic as possible, avoiding wines loaded with chemicals and flavoring agents. “There is a lot of bad stuff out there,” Wilson says. “Some (of the chocolate wines) are sickly sweet and fairly artificial in flavor.” Some chocolate wines can taste more like Hershey’s chocolate milk than wine, Wilson says. And anyway, many good wines have notes of chocolate flavor in them naturally. An example is Washington Merlot, which has undertones of chocolate and almond flavors. “The chocolate (in wine naturally) is not as dominant as the (artificially flavored versions) are,” Wilson says. “Some of the natural versions are bit more subtle.” Artificially flavored chocolate wines tend to be so sweet and rich that most

“Now it’s your turn, mom!”

Teenage son has no interest in driving Dear Ben and Wes: My son seems very unusual among his peers. He doesn’t want to drive. All the other kids got their licenses after driver’s ed, but my son isn’t interested. I tried to talk to him about why this isn’t important to him, but he just says he doesn’t see the point. He’ll be in college next year, and I don’t know how he’s going to get to a job. Do you have any suggestions? Ben: My car is currently broken down, and I have very little difficulty getting where I need to go. In high school, you generally having an arsenal of friends with cars and licenses who are willing to give you a ride to where you’re going, not to mention driving members of your family. Your son may not realize that this luxury won’t be so readily available in college, especially if he plans on going away from home. Granted, if he has an alternate mode of transportation, perhaps this isn’t such an immediate issue. Many college students rely on buses and bikes to get around and save a good wad of cash in the midst of high gas prices; however, this is something that needs to be planned out, not assumed. Yes, senior year is fun, but it’s also a year to start thinking purposefully about the future. Details like transportation are things that need to be seriously considered. Help your son to work through these details, since you’ve probably had to deal with many of them yourself. Wes: I agree with Ben. Owning a car will, for most teens and young adults, create more headaches than it cures. With the price of gas headed up, perhaps forever this time, your son may be smarter than those of us who’ve built our lives around the worship of shiny metal boxes. There are many colleges where cars have



“Likewise, when one chooses any path at age 16, to the exclusion of any other, he creates conditions for regret. Sure, your son could learn to drive at 21 (or 61, for that matter) but he’ll lack the crucial period of supervised experiential learning that creates good drivers, even as he’s being thrust into that role.” — DR. WES CRENSHAW little use. I just got back from University of Wisconsin, and that’s definitely one. The whole city is built around the U, bikes and scooters being the norm. However, it gets pretty cold up in Madison in December, which brings me to the next point.

Unless your son commits himself to life in a city with great public transportation (Chicago, New York, San Francisco, Washington, D.C.), and he’s very smart about how he manages his time, he’s going to have a hard time not needing to drive. Likewise, when one chooses any path at age 16, to the exclusion of any other, he creates conditions for regret. Sure, your son could learn to drive at 21 (or 61, for that matter) but he’ll lack the crucial period of supervised e x p e r i e n t i a l l e a r n i n g t h a t c re a t e s good drivers, even as he’s being thrust into that role. I suggest you build incentives for your son to drive through any means at your disposal, even if he only drives with you in the car for a few years. He doesn’t need to go out cruising every evening (at a rate of $100 per tankful). He just needs to know how to do it well before he heads out to college. I have been running into this problem a lot lately. Some kids have an almost phobic reaction to driving. If your son is at that point, I’d drop in on the therapist for some “systematic desensitization” to reduce whatever fears he might have.

‘Saltwater Taffy’ an adventure with momentum As I first started reading “Saltwater Taffy” by Eric DelaBarre, I wondered how I was going to motivate myself to finish it. The first two chapters are a flashback, and it was a little hard to figure out what was going on. But starting in chapter five, the plot starts to pick up and by the end, I was very much enthralled with the story. “Saltwater Taffy” starts with a flashback of Jean Pierre Lafitte burying his treasure. Then the story jumps to present day in the town of Port Townsend, Wash. Everyone wants to find the lost treasure, but most people don’t know how to start. However, a group of five friends take on the challenge: Scott, Gary, Jacqueline (aka Jaq), Zippy and Jimmy. Zippy is the smartest kid in the group and deciphers the first clue. Once they have decoded the clue, their enemy, Tommy, gets it instead. Fortunately, the friends get the clue back and follow

the trail everywhere it leads. Scott even decides to go alone to Old Man Sheesley’s house, the scariest man in town. Rumor has it Sheesley feeds runaway children to his dog, and going into his house is one of the kids’ greatest fears, but he turns out to be very valuable in helping them find the treasure. “Saltwater Taffy” is appropriate for kids ages 10 and older, no matter which genre you normally enjoy reading, because this book includes so many — mystery, historical fiction, adventure and a little romance. — Naomi Grant is an eighth-grader at Southwest Junior High School.

Is your child ready for



hey are the stuff of summer legend — something your kid will remember forever: summer camp. And not just any summer camp, but, rather, the kind where late-night ghost stories, sleeping bags and cookout breakfasts are bound to be part of the fold — sleepaway camp. There are nearly 10,000 camps in the United States, and 60 percent of them are sleepaway camps. Jennifer Kelman, children’s book author with a master’s in social work, suggests five signs to know your child is ready to hit the campground, sleeping bag in hand. We asked Lawrence parents whose kids have done sleepover camp to relate Kelman’s signs to their own experiences. ● Your child begins to express an interest in going to camp. Kelman says that this is one of the earliest signs for camp-going kids. Lawrence’s Justin Anderson, the father of two Cub Scouts, ages 10 and 7, says that this is huge in his family because it shows how important personality is over age. “I think that definitely, your child’s desire or interest to do a sleepaway camp or a sleepover is probably the biggest determining factor of the success of said sleepover camp,” he says. “We haven’t been involved or around a camp that offers a kid an opportunity to go away for three or four days without his mom and dad, but I

JACK ANDERSON, left, and Joseph Schmidtberger, both of Lawrence, practice whittling sticks at a summer 2010 Cub Scout camp event. The event is an overnight camp.

“Someone’s probably not reminding them to brush their teeth as adamantly as their mom and dad might.” — JUSTIN ANDERSON, LAWRENCE FATHER OF TWO CUB SCOUTS wouldn’t have a problem with that for the 10-year-old. (The younger one) may not do a sleepaway camp until college.” ● Your child is able to spend longer periods away from you without getting

upset. Can your child have a sleepover at a friend’s house and not call you in the middle of the night to go home? If so, that might be a sign he or she is ready for a sleepaway camp, Kelman says.

We LOVE our Residents and Staff at Bonner Springs Nursing & Rehab Center!

Scout dad Matthew Hoy says that when he’s been on overnights with the youngest of scouters, some of the kids weren’t ready, and that was fine — parents go to the camp with the kids in Cub Scouts. “I think there were some kids who struggled and needed to have some reassurance that they could do it and didn’t need to go home,” the Lawrence dad says, adding comfort can be a factor, too. “Keep in mind, it’s hot, it’s July, these boys are going all day long doing different activities and stuff, and they get worn out.” ● Your child gets along well with their peers. Kelman says that if your children display behavioral problems at school, they won’t improve at camp. Make sure your child already gets along with those at camp and don’t force anything, especially if parents aren’t invited to the camp. But, if you think your child is ready, scout mom Ruth DeWitt says it’s easy to see that children can make special connections with each other when they’re in a sleepaway environment. “Kids really bond when they’re together and doing those kind of things,” the Lawrence mom says. “They’re just put in somewhat of a different position. They step up, I think, responsibility wise. I think just have a lot of fun, just sleeping in a different place and just doing something kind of out of the ordinary.” ● Your child is able to follow directions from leaders. Being able to follow directions is pretty much mandatory

for a stay at a sleepover camp. Kelman says that sometimes when kids are away from their parents, they feel like they have free reign â&#x20AC;&#x201D; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important that if you wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be there to chaperone that your child understands and respects authority. Anderson says that he knew his son was ready for overnight camp because heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a selfstarter at home, and doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need to take direction, though he will. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our oldest can wake up in the morning and he decides heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to get himself some cereal or turn on the TV or occupy his mind with something other than going to find us to see what we want to do,â&#x20AC;? he says.

She and other members of Troop 1915 waking up on your own and not going to attended the overnight camp. find mom or dad as soon as you wake up.â&#x20AC;? Moreover, Anderson says itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s clear his older son not only has fun on sleepaways, but also learns skills that will serve him well later on. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They learn to be a little more independent. ... Someoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s probably not reminding them to brush their teeth as adamantly as their mom and dad might,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So, in that way, I think that sleepaway camp is just another opportunity for kids to rely on themselves to get something done.â&#x20AC;? â&#x2014;? Your child is asking to attend the type of camp that fits their needs. Some kids werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t made for overnight camp, Kelman says.

Lawrence nonprofit working to get children outside BY KARREY BRITT On a recent sunny Saturday afternoon, 8-year-old Yoav Gillath was outside flying kites with his dad, Omri. Yoav had a little “Lion King” kite, while his dad had a bigger kite in the shape of a dragon. They were running around, smiling and enjoying each other’s company. Yoav says they fly kites a couple times a year. When asked what else he likes to do, he says, “Play video games, play on the computer, watch TV — all of the screen things.” Those seem to be pretty typical activities for children these days. That’s exactly why Outside for a Better Inside, a Lawrence nonprofit group, is hosting activities like the recent kite-flying event. It wants to reconnect children to the

The next group event will be a fishing expedition Saturday at St. Mary’s Lake in Prairie Park. great outdoors and nature because it believes being outside leads to a better inside. About a dozen children attended the April 16 event at Holcom

Park, and it was such a success that Outside for a Better Inside is planning another kite-flying event. Next time, they hope to get some folks who can come out and

show off their skills at flying much bigger kites. The activities — organized by Outside for a Better Inside — are open to anyone and are free. During the past year, they’ve visited the Baker Wetlands and Prairie Park Nature Center, participated in a butterfly tagging program and went on a scavenger hunt. The next event is a fishing expedition from 8:30 a.m. to noon Saturday at Mary’s Lake, which is in Prairie Park. The event is being held in conjunction with the Crown Casting Club and Lawrence Parks & Recreation. Bait and tackle will be provided along with refreshments.

Mary Jones, of Outside for a Better Inside, says the nonprofit builds butterfly gardens for schools. It also wants to get a new n a t u re c l u b s t a r t e d i n Lawrence, one that will organize its own outings and meet on a regular basis. She says they haven’t had anyone interested yet in starting a club, but they are hopeful. “That’s the part that’s missing,” Jones says. “We really want to get one going.” If you are interested in helping to organize such a club, contact Jones at 766-3023 or

BY SARAH HENNING What am I doing? Oh nothing, just trying to cook away my massive CSA haul before it goes bad. We’re through week one, and I’ll admit that after a year off (and a trip to the Farmers’ Market in which I forgot that my CSA started in two days) I kind of had produce coming out of my ears. Whoops. But, I got rid of it and I did not throw any of it away, so score one for Bye-Bye Bounty. OK, so what’d we have and how’d we use it? My first “early-bird” pick up from the Rolling Prairie Farmers’ Alliance was April 18. We picked up mushroom paté, eggs, red kale, pea shoots, asparagus, spinach and green garlic. That’s a lot of stuff. Especially when one’s fridge is already full. So, we made sure to use it the first

SPINACH CSA SMOOTHIE night. My husband decided he’d create a usual dish: hard-boiled eggs with asparagus. He swears it was delicious (I had a not-so-photogenic salad — I was trying to clear out the crisper). The next morning, I went to town on our full fridge and put some of my CSA spinach into a smoothie with blueberries and a banana. I put in some water, whirled it around and had it for breakfast with the little guy. Now, I know what you’re

thinking. It is not disgusting. It’s actually really tasty. Plus, my son, Nate, likes the purple color. And if you think I tricked him with the color into eating some greens, think again, because the kid is a green smoothie fiend. We had smoothies for the rest of the week, the hubby ate the paté with some pita chips and as for the red kale, pea shots and green garlic? Well, I didn’t eat them, but I didn’t throw them away either. I gifted them to my friend, Coleen, who loves green smoothies as much as I do. Kale can be subbed in place of the spinach if you like, for this smoothie, though the “green” taste will be stronger. Don’t be scared. It’s good. If my 2year-old can drink a spinach or kale smoothie, you can, too.

Spinach CSA Smoothie 2 handfuls spinach, washed and torn 1 1/2 to 2 cups blueberries 1 banana (add another if you want it sweeter) 1-2 cups water (depending on how thick you like it)

Blend! Enjoy. Drink it soon after making it — blueberries can get a little weird (gloppy?) if they’re not eaten soon after blending.

Selecting the wrong seat: Using the wrong size car seat is a no-no. Buying used car seats is also discouraged; parts could be missing and there is generally a six-year expiration date. The American Academy of Pediatrics offers additional guidelines: Incorrect installation: Mistakes include routing seatbelts incorrectly and not putting seatbelts in lock mode. Follow both your car seat and car manual, and have a professional doublecheck your work. The Safe Kids of Douglas County Coalition offers free inspections; appointments can be made at designated times each month. Call Lawrence Memorial Hospital’s Connect Care at 749-5800 or enroll at Not using the tether: The tether, which is almost always used in a forward-facing car seat, should be attached to anchors that usually sit behind headrests. The tether keeps the child’s head safely within the parameters of the seat.

Practicing reflection reduces stress, enhances creativity “Only when the clamor of the outside world is silenced will you be able to hear the deeper vibration. Listen carefully.” — Sarah Ban Breathnach


eelings of depression and anxiety can be quite uncomfortable, and most of us develop a sense of urgency to rid ourselves of the discomfort. However, the ability to view uncomfortable feelings as essential lear ning opportunities can turn discomfort into an experience of growth. The feelings are signs of imbalances in our lives that may exist in emotional, physical, relational and/or spiritual dimensions. Reflection is a way of observing uncomfortable feelings and thoughts with an approach that blends curiosity with a nonjudgmental stance that can move you from a stuck place to a creative place.

In our culture, it takes great awareness and deliberateness to take time for reflection. Because of our conditioning, being in continuous task mode seems normal. We are always checking our lists, whether written on a notepad or swirling in our head. Frequently, when occupied by tasks, we become unconscious. While unconscious we are unable to stay on top of our experience. Our actions become robotic, meaningless and frequently unhealthy. Reflection may aid us in three key ways. First, honest reflection acts like a spell checker in a word processing program, helping us identify potential errors in previous thoughts and actions, giving us the opportunity to self-correct before an unhealthy pattern develops. Secondly, by taking time to consider the day

ahead we are able to connect intention to future action. Thirdly, reflection provides the opportunity to get out of doing mode and into being mode. Taking time to just be enables us to reinvigorate our spirit. In spite of our higher intellect, or perhaps because of it, we are the only animals who seem to have lost the capacity, and therefore the benefits, of just being. Our clients report that when they take time to reflect at bedtime, upon rising and at times during the day, their capacity to influence their moment-to moment-experience improves. Reflection can be done in a few minutes, may involve journaling or can be part of a short or lengthy meditation. Your reflection time can be organized or free-flowing. You may set different intentions for different reflec-


tion times. We recommend using reflection whenever you feel uncomfortable as a way to observe and gain insight into your discomfort. It is useful to reflect on the four aspects of your humanity: the emotional, the physical, the relational and the spiritual. Typically you will find imbalances in one or more areas that are leading to your discomfort or get awareness of a potential problem, such as recognizing that you have not paid attention lately to your relational or spiritual needs.

‘SEWING SCHOOL’ Sewing is one of those life skills that will serve a child through adulthood. There’s the practical wisdom of knowing how to sew on a button as well as the more entertaining aspects of making toys and, later on, projects like curtains.


“The fashion show will also feature cruelty-free items, clothing designed and styled by Katya Martin, Jessica McGlothlin, Bill Wachspress, Kelly Ghahramani, Heather Jones, Mary Scahill and Ashley Morgan-Garcia.”

The goal of “Sewing School: 21 Sewing Projects Kids Will Love to Make” (Storey, $16.95) by Amie Petronis Plumley and Andria Lisle is to light the spark — and cut parents a break (no

more buttons to reattach if your kid knows how, right?). Most of the projects focus on handsewing, though a few incorporate sewing machines. Tutorials cover different fabrics, the tools for a sewing kit and, of course, safety rules. Notes for parents are scattered throughout. Good advice for any age.

KU group organizes dinner, fashion show with a cruelty-free catwalk


his Cinco de Mayo, one KU student-run organization will be celebrating Mexico’s independence in style. Compassion for All Animals will host KU’s first Cruelty-Free Fashion Show. And after my recent discussion with the event’s organizers, it is clear that the show will provide far greater entertainment than toy- and candy-laden contents of your typical Cinco de Mayo piñata. “We were initially just planning a cruelty-free dinner to gain awareness and show people that cruelty-free and vegan foods can be tasty, accessible and fun alternatives,” says Cassandra Smyers, one of four co-chairs for the event. “And then the fashion show sprung up. Suddenly it’s become this massive event — we have about 80 volunteers involved.” In order to successfully host this big event, CAA also teamed up with several local organizations, including Amnesty International, Lawrence Fair Trade,

CAA CRUELTY FREE FASHION SHOW Who: Compassion for All Animals, Amnesty International, Lawrence Humane Society, KU Oxfam, Lawrence Fair Trade When: 7 p.m. Thursday Where: Ecumenical Christian Ministries building, 1204 Oread Ave. KU Oxfam and the Lawrence Humane Society. Attendees to the event can expect a fresh vegan dinner menu developed by Chef Stefanie Petrozz, jams by DJ Dan Persechini and Mary Scahill, a hip, cruelty-free catwalk show, and access to information regarding animal advocacy associations. I was lucky enough to score a menu preview, and the entirely vegan dishes sound surprisingly meaty, hearty and intriguing.

Entrees such as Indian “Chicken” biryani, grilled beefless tips and veggie sloppy joes top the list. The fashion show will also feature cruelty-free items, clothing designed and styled by Katya Martin, Jessica McGlothlin, Bill Wachspress, Kelly Ghahramani, Heather Jones, Mary Scahill and Ashley Morgan-Garcia. Regardless of your familiarity with the cruelty-free movement, don’t shy away from this event — members of CAA clearly assert that although they take their animal rights work seriously, they work to maintain a lighthearted atmosphere. And indeed, the upcoming event’s program notes seem to sum up the group’s overall mindset best: “No need to be a vegetarian, we invite all! We have a beautiful community and we’re growing — join us!” — Caitlin Donnelly can be reached at

Mom is here for you (with scissors)

River City Jules


Mother’s Day approaches, I would like to renew the promises I have made to my children. Feel free to borrow, add and delete as you see fit and, above all, enjoy a Mother’s Day that fulfills your every fantasy. My dear children, as the lights of my life I promise I will always love you. Even when carrying you all in utero eventually renders my bladder marginally useless and I spend the rest of my life in fear of sudden laughter, coughing and any song that might lead to jumping up and down on a dance floor. I love you when I find you via a trail of powdered sugar from the pantry to you, covered in white dust from your head to your rain boots. I love you when the plumber reveals that the sewer flooded our basement because you saw fit to fill the cleanout pipe with tiny pebbles that would require two attempts by specialists to remove. And I love you when I discover your affinity for nail polish is not just limited to toenails, but to walls, tables and to your dad when he is sleeping. I love you when you roll your eyes, borrow my clothes without asking, thump your brother on the head, leave your backpack on the kitchen floor for the fiftygazillionth time in a row and come into my bedroom in the middle of the night, stand 3 inches away from my face and tell me you heard a noise. And I even love you when you wear that flat-billed cap that makes your ears stick out or pick all the carrots out of the salad I lovingly chopped or demand I find Wiz Khalifa on the radio. Because of this love so deep, I promise to always be there for you, including every time you are injured, sad or ill (except for the stomach flu, which I will usually turf to

your dad because it is gross). It also includes your every sport, concert and recital, even though I have to watch other people’s kids there, too. And every time your friends are over and you all have so much fun you forget I can hear what you are saying. Yes, as Sting says, I’ll be watching you. I also promise to never cut your bangs myself (ever again), to never dress you in those hideous polyester bellbottoms my mom used to make me wear and to never make you smell or eat sauerkraut. And, as three of you are girls, I promise every family vacation will include some sort of plumbing and real toilet paper. And I promise that in spite of all of this expert care I will give you, you will all have awkward stages in your life that will ultimately make you more enjoyable to be around as adults. And all those years spent with braces, glasses and bad hair and any resulting weekend nights at home with us, wishing we would stop quoting Bon Jovi songs and just be cool like everyone else’s parents, will eventually allow you to stop worrying so much about everyone else and love yourself for what is on the inside. Almost as much as I do. I promise. — Julie Dunlap can be reached at

properly serviced air conditioner is less likely to break down and more likely to cool your home efficiently. Whether you have a large central air unit or a small window unit, there are several things you can do to help ensure your air conditioner is operating at its optimal capacity. Step 1: Change the filter. Filters remove small particles of dust that can cause an air conditioner to operate less efficiently. Changing the filter every 30 to 90 days will ensure the air conditioner motor does not work overtime. Central air units usually direct air through the furnace duct work. Changing the air conditioner filter is the same as changing the furnace filter in most cases. Step 2: Clear away debris and cut back any vegetation within 2 feet of the air conditioner. Proper air flow around the unit is important, and the less dirt and debris the motor and fan have to deal with the better. Step 3: Clean the air conditioner grille or housing. Use a brush or vacuum to remove as much dust and lint from the fins as possible. Do not use water, as it may force mud into the unit. Step 4: Clean the condenser coils. Dust

and particles accumulate on the coils, making it more difficult for the air conditioner to cool. Turn off the power to the air conditioner. Spray coil cleaner or degreaser on the condenser coils. Let the cleaner work for 5 minutes, then rinse completely with cold water. Step 5: Clean the drain line. Leaking condensation lines can cause serious damage to a home. Access to the line is usually available through a clean out or from inside the evaporator coil drain pan. Clear the line by flushing it with water or compressed air from the access point or by capping the access and using a heavy duty vacuum to suck out debris from the open end of the line. If the drain line ends are not accessible, disconnect or cut the line near the access point to clean it. Reassemble the line properly to assure it does not leak once the air conditioner is up and running. Step 6: Arrange to have a professional service technician oil the fan motor, check the belts, test the operating pressure and temperature, check the amperage draw and check the coolant level on a regular basis. — Linda Cottin can be reached at A PROPERLY SERVICED air conditioner is less likely to break down and more likely to cool your home efficiently.

Get your dog ready for summer months M C C L AT C H Y N E W S PA P E R S It’s time to get outside and take advantage of all the warmer weather has to offer and do things that the cold temperatures may have prevented you from doing. To help you and your dog get ready for summer, American Kennel Club Canine Partners offers the following suggestions: ● Get a clean bill of health. It’s good to take your dog for a checkup after being cooped up in the house for the winter.

● Drop the winter weight. Many of us pack on a few pounds during the cold winter months, and chances are our dogs have, too. If your dog is looking a little fuller these days, it’s time to talk to your veterinarian about a safe weight-loss regimen. Try cutting back on treats that add calories to your dog’s diet. Instead, try giving him baby carrots. ● Play outside. Now that the weather is warming up, take the opportunity to get outside with your dog. Start slowly if your dog hasn’t exercised much over the winter. Try

taking a walk to the local dog park, or playing fetch in your yard. ● Beware of the grass. Your dog will finally be able to run and play on the grass, but be careful where you let the dog go. The chemicals used on lawns don’t belong on your dog’s paws. Make sure you clean his pads after playing on grass. ● Groom the coat. Shedding increases in the springtime as dogs lose their winter coats. Make sure to brush your dog regularly. This will help keep the shedding under control.

Does the thought of going to the dentist get this response from your child?
