Commission may approve 2013 budget this week By Chad Lawhorn clawhorn@ljworld.com

Lawrence’s police force will grow a bit, and so will the city’s property tax rate, under a $174 million budget that is up for approval by city commissioners Tuesday. Commissioners at their weekly meeting will consider approving the city’s 2013 operating budget, which includes a plan to add three new police officers and additional funding for

Proposed plan includes tax increase of less than 1 mill police equipment. “I am disappointed we haven’t been able to accomplish more on the police front right now, but that is the reality of the current economy,” said City Commissioner Hugh Carter. Earlier in the budget session, leaders with the Lawrence Police Department presented more than $40 million worth of staff additions and facility improvements

that they proposed be funded over a multi-year period. Commissioners, though, have not yet pursued creating a multi-year funding plan for the department. Instead, commissioners focused on keeping the city’s property tax mill levy relatively stable. The 2013 budget proposes a mill levy increase of 0.92 of a mill. A mill is $1 in property tax-

es for every $1,000 in assessed valuation. A home with a market value of $200,000 would pay an extra $21.16 per year in property taxes under the proposed budget. The higher property tax rate is expected to generate about $769,000 in new tax revenue for the city. The budget proposes increases of: ! $300,000 for equipment

LAWRENCE RESIDENT PATTI ESSMAN, 58, moves through her living room on Thursday, picking up her belongings after a fall earlier in the day that knocked over a card table. Essman, who says she suffers from various debilitating ailments including arthritis and fibromyalgia, has been waiting for more than two years to receive assistance from the state. She says she is unable to stay on her feet for any length of time as a result of pain and fatigue associated with illnesses. When she goes outside, she generally uses a wheelchair.

People with disabilities want state to fund more assistance services By Scott Rothschild srothschild@ljworld.com

Patti Essman, who suffers from a host of health problems, says her life would be a lot better if she received some assistance from the state. “I’m a mess,” said Essman, who is 58 and lives in Lawrence. “I need to find a junk yard where I can find some parts where I can get overhauled.” Essman is among more than 8,500 Kansans who are on waiting lists under the Medicaid program for home and community-based services for people with physical and developmental disabilities. She has been waiting for more than two years. Essman, who lives alone, has difficulty walking and has suffered numerous falls. When she goes outside, she generally uses a wheelchair. She has heart problems, diabetes, fibromyalgia and other ailments. “I mostly need someone who can come in and do the things I can’t, like doing dishes, sweeping and mopping the floor,” she said. Advocates for people with disabilities are

ESSMAN SAYS SHE DOESN’T WANT TO GIVE UP what independence she has left by going into an assistedliving situation.

The federal government has entered the picture, investigating complaints that the state is violating the civil rights of people who are waiting for help. trying to get the Kansas Legislature and Gov. Sam Brownback to increase funding to serve more people and reduce the number waiting for help and the length of time they must wait. Tim Wood, manager of the End the Wait campaign in Kansas, said that since 1997, there have been few legislative sessions where the Legislature

has increased funding for the programs. “We’ve had some success, but there is a long way to go,” he said. During the last session, the Legislature and Brownback provided additional state funding for both the physical and developmentally disabled waiting lists. For people with physical disabilities, the program increased by about $2 million in state general funding. And the program for Kansans with developmental disabilities increased by about $3.4 million in state general funding, according to statistics provided by the Kansas Legislative Research Department. But the backlog is becoming “alarming” and

“overwhelming,” Wood said. Meanwhile, the federal government has entered the picture, investigating complaints that the state is violating the civil rights of people who are waiting for help. Advocates for people with physical disabilities have been filing Olmstead complaints, based on a U.S. Supreme Court decision that says states must provide services to people with disabilities to enable them to be more integrated in the community. Earlier this year, negotiations between the Brownback administration and officials with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services broke down. HHS then forwarded the waiting list complaints to the U.S. Justice Department, which “has made enforcement of Olmstead a top priority.” Meanwhile, Essman said she will continue waiting. “I try to stay as independent as I can. I’m not ready to give up. I’m still trying to manage,” she said. — Statehouse reporter Scott Rothschild can be reached at 785-423-0668.

In preparation for Tuesday’s primary election, Douglas County Clerk Jamie Shew answered some questions that he said continue to cause confusion among voters, particularly concerning Kansas’ new voter ID law. Shew said his office was Shew receiving many calls from concerned voters, but he hoped that even voters with questions will come to the polls Tuesday. No one should leave the polls without having the opportunity to vote, he said, even if it means voting through a provisional ballot. Voters who cast provisional ballots will have an opportunity to provide additional ID or other information after the election to confirm their eligibility and make sure their votes are counted. Here are some common questions and Shew’s answers:

Q: A:

What kind of identification do I need to vote? A driver’s license or state-issued ID card will work, as will a U.S. passport, government employee badge (issued by a Kansas government entity), student ID card or Kansas concealed carry license. Does the address on my ID need to match my address in the poll book? No. Election officials will accept identification cards from across the country. You do not need proof of address to vote, as long as you are registered. Does my full name need to exactly match that on my ID? No. “It’s commonly accepted that ‘Jim’ and ‘James’ will be the same person,” Shew said. But surnames do need to match. If your ID does not match your last name in the register or vice versa, you can cast a provisional ballot and then provide matching identification to clear up the name confusion. If I cast a provisional ballot, will my vote be counted? Yes. Voters who cast provisional ballots have seven business days to present a Please see VOTE, page 2A

Edna Zillner has seen many events and changes in her lifetime. Now she is about to see her 105th birthday party. Zillner turned 105 on Friday, making her the oldest resident of the Pioneer Ridge Nursing Home — and possibly the oldest person in Kansas. “I’d like to know of someone older,” she said jokingly. Turning 105 isn’t an everyday event. According to the U.S. Census, only 1 in 6,000 Americans make it to the age of 100. Earlier in the week, Zillner received a congratulatory letter from Gov. Sam Brownback, and she plans to celebrate her birthday with tea and cookies from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. today at the nursing home. She said she avoided a cake because 105 candles were just too many to blow out. Zillner said her secret to longevity is simple. “Just keep going and you’ll get there someday,” she said. “Then someone will be sitting across from you asking you these questions.” It’s hard not to have questions for Zillner. She lived through the Dust Bowl and grew up in a farmhouse without running water and electricity. She learned to drive a wagon with her favorite horses, Jack and Kate. Zillner worked as a teacher, lunch lady and department store clerk

Even with such a long and full life, it took Zillner no time to remember her favorite moment. “My wedding,” she said. She married at age 20 in 1927. After the ceremony, she finished her shift at the department store where she worked. Times were different then, she explained. While she is no longer 20 and now lives in a vastly different world, Zillner said she feels like she could go another 100 years. “I don’t have an acre of pain,” she said. “I feel good.” Her daughter Joyce Halderman couldn’t help but agree. “Who knows, she might pass me up,” she said. — Staff intern Adam Strunk can be reached at 832-7146.

Could tougher voting laws squelch the youth vote? By Martha Irvine Associated Press

CHICAGO — Gone are the days when young voters weren’t taken seriously. In 2008, they helped propel Barack Obama into the Oval Office, supporting him by a 2-1 margin. But that higher profile also has landed them in the middle of the debate over some state laws that regulate voter registration and how people identify themselves at the polls. Since the last election, Pennsylvania, Kansas, Wisconsin and Texas and other states have tried to limit or ban the use of student IDs as voter identification.

Romney reveals little about himself

EDITORIALS

Olympic inspiration It’s hard not to get caught up in the efforts and accomplishments of Olympic athletes.

D

espite the various controversies associated with the Olympic Games over the years, the efforts and accomplishments of individual athletes still inspire. Questions continue to linger about the possible impact of blood-doping or performance-enhancing drugs. The dominance of professional athletes like those on the U.S. men’s basketball team continues to raise eyebrows among amateur sports purists. Relentless promotion for increasingly commercialized Olympic programming is a turn-off for many viewers. And yet, when a swimmer achieves a personal best, a smiling gymnast sticks a gold-medal routine or members of a rowing team stand atop the podium singing the national anthem, it’s hard not to share their joy. Nationalistic pride certainly is part of the equation, but we also are moved by the stories of these athletes and their commitment to their sports. We see the willingness of all Olympic athletes — those who make it to the medal stand and those who never come close — to dedicate themselves to a goal and make the sacrifices that go along with that choice. Some athletes, like swimmer Michael Phelps, are trying to live up to high expectations. Others, like swimmer Tyler Clary, the unexpected winner of the 200-meter backstroke, seem to surprise even themselves. They all seem to have an internal drive. Rebecca Soni set a world record in a qualifying heat of the 200-meter breaststroke with a time of 2:20:00, then was elated to achieve a long-standing personal goal by trimming that time to 2:19:59 and becoming the first woman to break the 2:20 mark in her event. Tiny 16-year-old Gabby Douglas stole the show Thursday by claiming the gold in the women’s all-around gymnastics competition. Her family, like many other Olympic families, had endured considerable financial and personal stress to send her away from home to train, but as she stood atop the podium, her smile said it all. Americans will see Gabby’s face everywhere, but they are less likely to recognize Kayla Harrison, who won the nation’s first gold medal in judo, or Kim Rhode who has medals in five consecutive Olympic games and took the gold this year with a near-perfect skeet-shooting performance. For many of the athletes, a trip to the Olympics is a personal journey; for others it is a journey taken with teammates they will be tied to forever. Ask the eight-woman rowing team that won a gold medal in Beijing and repeated that feat in London last week. It’s not always easy to live up to the Olympic ideal. After blatantly throwing their matches in an attempt to secure easier opponents in subsequent rounds, eight women badminton players from China, South Korea and Indonesia were expelled from the games. At least they made badminton into a headline sport for once. For the most part, however, no one needs to compel athletes to give every Olympic competition their all. They have trained and sacrificed. Even if they don’t win a medal, they want to compete and represent their nations well. That’s the spirit of the Olympics that continues to inspire athletes and magically rub off on spectators as well.

He has run for the Senate, for governor and, twice, for president. He has given more campaign speeches in highvisibility circumstances than almost anyone in the country. And still, after 18 years on public rostrums and in the public eye, he remains the most mysterious figure on the American scene. On the surface, he may seem the least likely politician of the age to be regarded as mysterious at all — but the plain-talking, seldom excitable and rarely exciting Mitt Romney, who has been speaking four or five times a day for more than a year, has revealed almost nothing about himself and his views. Indeed, Romney is, as Franz Liszt said of Frederic Chopin, “prepared to give anything, but never gave himself.” America has had political figures with a mania for privacy before; Calvin Coolidge gave up little about himself, and the two President Bushes were so reluctant to share their personal thoughts they disparaged even the idea of introspection, saying they didn’t want to sit in a psychiatrist’s chair. Not all privacy-preserving politicians are Republicans; both former Vice President Walter F. Mondale and former Gov. Michael S. Dukakis of Massachusetts failed to win the White House in part because they didn’t share the warm, engaging sides most voters still don’t believe they possess.

Man of the future? But seldom has a major American political figure so hidden both himself and his own ideas as Romney, who, like most politicians, prides himself as a man of the future rather than the past and, like almost all successful leaders, argues he is not a prisoner of the past. He is not, as John Maynard Keynes might say, the slave of “some long-dead economist” — not that Romney himself would be caught dead quoting Keynes. Political polls have shown remarkably little movement in recent months, with President Barack Obama holding a steady but slim lead over Rom-

For his part, Romney is running as an exceptionally gifted, almost wizardly manager armed with conventional conservative ideas, though Americans rarely elect managers, who in folklore, if not in reality, often have the political sex appeal of accountants.” ney. While it is impossible to isolate a single reason why a business-oriented Republican has failed to overtake a regulation-oriented Democrat at a time of stubborn economic distress, it remains remarkable that Romney has proffered so few new ideas of his own. This is not to say that Romney is running an empty, media-oriented campaign. He has plenty to say, about economics, gay marriage and, after his overseas trip, about national security and diplomatic matters. But except perhaps for his China policy, his proposals, dutiful and detailed, are more derivative than innovative or original. They are a quilt of notions about the size of government that can be traced to Ronald Reagan; views about social issues with strong roots in religious conservatism; assertions of American exceptionalism growing out of the neoconservative wing of the Republican Party; and expressions of impatience with the status quo ripped from the labels of the tea bags on the muscular right of the conservative movement.

of course. Gov. Franklin D. Roosevelt had very few ideas when he ran for president in 1932, and even from this distance it is difficult to distill a consistent ethic from the New Deal except for the determination to do something, and then to do something else, until something worked or until the Supreme Court struck it down. Only in the White House did Lyndon B. Johnson, a conventional New Dealer but mostly a wheeler-dealer, make the full transformation from Senate institutionalist to presidential idealist. But some candidates, like Sen. Gary Hart (1984 and 1988) and Rep. Jack F. Kemp (1988), are founts of new ideas. Sen. John F. Kennedy (1960) and former Gov. Reagan (1976, 1980 and 1984) ran on very big ideas, with oversized rhetoric to match — rhetoric that, in both cases, stirs Americans still.

Wizardly manager For his part, Romney is running as an exceptionally gifted, almost wizardly manager armed with conventional conservative ideas, though Americans rarely elect managers, who in folklore, if not in reality, often have the political sex appeal of accountants. The only exception may be Herbert Hoover, one of the great business figures of his age and perhaps the leading manager in political history. What is significant here isn’t that Hoover presided over the Great Depression — his role in that is still debated — but that Hoover’s business experience and acumen, and the air of management competence that he cultivated and personified, gave him 444 electoral votes in his battle against a breakthrough candidate much like Obama, Gov. Al Smith of New York, the first Catholic to win the presidential nomination of a major American political party. Other presidential candidates who have run as managers have failed, making Everyone’s not an original little impact in electoral poliNot all American politi- tics. These include Donald cians are American originals, Rumsfeld, who as the recent

former chief of G.D. Searle and Co., ran for president briefly in 1988, and Lee Iacocca, who held top positions at both Ford Motor Co. and the Chrysler Corp., and also toyed with running for president. Both said they would have emphasized bringing business values to government, which sounds better in the executive suite than on the campaign hustings. (A business approach was not part of the electioneering appeal of Gov. George W. Bush, who became the first president with an M.B.A. He ran on his record of partisan conciliation in Texas, his concept of “compassionate conservatism” and his own brand of Western-style politics.) In his 1988 acceptance speech at the Democratic National Convention, Dukakis made a memorable remark: “This election isn’t about ideology; it’s about competence. It’s not about meaningless labels; it’s about American values — old-fashioned values like accountability and responsibility and respect for the truth.” Romney could say almost all of that except for the ideology part, for he has drawn an ideological contrast with the president even without original ideas.

It’s still early It is, however, relatively early in the campaign. Romney’s formal nomination is still weeks away. His acceptance speech has not yet been written. Both the phrases “New Deal” (from FDR) and “New Frontier” (from Kennedy) appeared in their convention acceptance speeches. When Robert Frost went to visit the White House in 1958, he presented President Dwight D. Eisenhower a volume of his poems, and on the flyleaf he wrote: “The strong are saying nothing until they see.” Perhaps that applies to Romney, and perhaps for the former Massachusetts governor the road not taken lies ahead. — David M.

PUBLIC FORUM

Fact-based To the editor: I would like to encourage everyone to read Insurance Commissioner Sandy Praeger’s answers to questions regarding health reform on page 6A of the Aug. 2 Journal-World. After reading her responses to questions, it is difficult for me to understand how people can be against the Affordable Care Act (derogatorily named Obamacare by its opponents). In my opinion, negative comments about the Affordable Care Act are based on politics and not what is positive for our citizens. Finally, I would like to commend Commissioner Praeger for basing her beliefs about the Affordable Care Act on thorough study and responding in an unbiased way. I realize her responses may not be favorable to many conservatives in her political party, but thanks, commissioner, for having the courage to express what you know to be the truth. Leonard Steinle, Lawrence

No to rec center To the editor: If the City Commission continues to go ahead with the grand rec center, the City of Lawrence is in trouble. As one with limited income, I cannot purchase “big ticket” items for my home without already having the required funds. We are always getting reports about ongoing financial problems locally and nationally. How can the City Commission possibly believe the citizens can survive another foolish investment. The big winner will be the developer getting free road and infrastructure through his property.

Friday’s newspaper report should be enough to wake everyone up and make everyone concerned. Frisco, Texas, is in debt for a million dollars with their complex. There are already two existing facilities in Johnson County. Financially, the city is not in a position where it can say, “Build it and they will come.” That only happens in the movies. Money still does not grow on trees. However, I assume we can take the approach that it won’t happen to us. I suppose that’s what Stockton, Calif., thought while they were over-obligating. Now that city has filed for bankruptcy. Listen people. We are in deep financial trouble personally, locally and nationally. Maybe it is time the City Commission takes a three-year moratorium on building the “gee whiz” items and save money for a rainy day like the common people do. Roger Powell, Lawrence

Rangers rough up Smith, Royals KANSAS CITY, MO. (AP) — Will Smith is learning in the major leagues, where the lessons can often be harsh. The 23-year-old rookie was chased in the sixth inning Saturday night and the Kansas City Royals lost 4-2 to the Texas Rangers. Smith (2-4) gave up four runs and eight hits over 5 2/3 innings, dropping his third straight start. “I thought he threw the ball pretty darn good,” Royals manager Ned Yost said. “He competed well and did a Smith really nice job keeping pitches down and changing speeds against a really tough lineup. Each time out he’s getting better.” Smith feels he’s improving, even if the win column doesn’t reflect it. “It’s a step-by-step process each day,” the left-hander said. “It’s something that I want to work on.” Scott Feldman won his sixth straight decision and Josh Hamilton drove in two runs to help the AL West leaders win their fourth straight. Hamilton, who leads the majors with 90 RBIs, hit an opposite-field single in the third to score Ian Kinsler and Elvis Andrus. Kinsler singled with one out and went to third on Andrus’ double. “I couldn’t have thrown the slider better,” Smith said. “I thought it might be a swing-and-miss, but he did a good job of getting it. He’s a good hitter.” Feldman (6-6) worked into the eighth inning and became the first pitcher in 29 years to win six consecutive decisions after starting the season 0-6. Doyle Alexander did it in 1983 with the New York Yankees and Toronto Blue Jays. “I’ve just sort of gone about my business and felt the same way the whole year,” Feldman said. “It’s just nice to get an opportunity to go in there and help out and keep my focus on that, making good pitches.” Feldman went 17-9 in 2009, but knee injuries the past two seasons set him back. This year, he returned to the rotation because of injuries to Rangers starters Neftali Feliz and Colby Lewis. “It’s been very timely,” manager Ron Washington said. “He’s been our security blanket, really. Things go wrong in the rotation and we’ve been able to just plug him and he eats up innings. He’s executing his pitches really well.” Mike Olt, called up Thursday from Double-A, added two RBIs for Texas. With closer Joe Nathan unavailable, Alexi Ogando worked around two singles in the ninth to earn his third save. Feldman, who was 3-0 with a 1.96 ERA in July, held Kansas City to six hits and two runs over 7 2/3 innings. The Royals, who lost for the 23rd time in 32 games, scored twice in the fifth on groundouts by Chris Getz and Alex Gordon. “We did a pretty good job against him,” Yost said. “He had a tremendous two-seamer, a tremendous splitter and a tremendous curve. He was really hard to hit and I think we did a good job of getting some hits off him.” Olt, who had 28 home runs and 82 RBIs with Double-A Frisco before his promotion,

KANSAS UNIVERSITY FRESHMAN BEN MCLEMORE SCRIMMAGES with his KU teammates on Saturday at the Jayhawks’ practice facility near Allen Fieldhouse. McLemore tweaked a hipflexor early in the practice, but should be ready to play when KU begins its European exhibition on Tuesday.

Ben McLemore, who hit two three-pointers and an inside shot in the first 10 minutes of Saturday’s Kansas University basketball intrasquad scrimmage, was on pace for quite an offensive performance in the Jayhawks’ practice facility next to Allen Fieldhouse. However, the smooth-shooting, 6-foot-5, 185-pound red-shirt freshman from St. Louis had his day cut short after suffering a left hip-flexor injury while playing defense at the conclusion of the first of four 10-minute sessions. “Ben is good offensively,” KU coach Bill Self said of McLemore, who practiced second semester of the 2011-12 season, but did not play in games after being deemed a partial academic qualifier. “He can do a lot of things. Right now he is more a shooter and just an athlete more than knowing how to plug himself in and use his athletic ability. He’s going to be a nice player,” Self added. The good news is McLemore’s injury is minor and he should be fine for Tuesday’s noon European tour exhibition opener against the Swiss National Team in Fribourg, Switzerland. He’s full of energy and raring to go after not playing in a game in so long. “I think it’s awesome. I can’t wait. I’m so excited, it hasn’t hit me yet,” McLemore said. “Once I get over there, I’m going to be like, ‘Man, it’s finally here. I finally get to play for Kansas.’” Please see BASKETBALL, page 5B

Phelps good as gold in Olympic finale

It’s been a great career. It’s been a great journey. I can’t be any more happy than I am.”

LONDON (AP) — When it was over, Michael Phelps hugged his teammates, then headed off the deck for the final time. Reclaiming the lead with his trademark butterfly stroke, Phelps won the 18th gold of an unparalleled career when he helped the U.S. win the 4x100-meter medley relay Saturday night. Phelps retires with twice as many golds as any other — United States Olympian, and his total of swimmer Michael 22 medals is easily the best mark, too.

Jamaica also got a big victory when Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce raced to another gold in the women’s 100 meters, keeping the cherished sprinting title in the Caribbean country. Pistorius, a double-amputee who runs on carbon-fiber blades, finished second in

his 400-meter heat to earn a berth in the semifinals tonight. He posted a seasonbest time of 45.44 seconds. “I’ve worked for six years ... to get my chance,” said the South African, who became the first amputee to compete on the track at an Olympics. “I found myself smiling in the starting block. Which is very rare in the 400 meters.” Team GB sent a charge through the capacity crowd

with a quick series of victories, producing repeated roars that could be heard throughout Olympic Park.

Sporting KC claims 1-0 victory FOXBOROUGH, MASS. (AP) — Teal Bunbury scored in the 20th minute to give Sporting KC a 1-0 victory over the New England Revolution at Gillette Stadium on Saturday night. Sporting KC (11-8-4) snapped a three-match (0-2-1) winless streak and clinched the threematch season series against

New England with two wins and a tie. New England (6-11-5) had its winless skid extended to five matches (0-4-1), having scored just two goals over the span. The Revolution were shut out in all three matches against Sporting KC this season, including a 3-0 loss on March 17

and a 0-0 draw on July 21. New England has just one win among its last nine matches (1-4-4) and slipped to 5-3-3 at home. New England surrendered the first goal in a match for the 11th time this season when Bunbury beat a New England defender to a high bouncing ball, spun free on the left side and beat onrush-

ing goalkeeper Matt Reis with a right-footed shot to the lower right corner for his fourth goal of the season. Sporting KC goalkeeper Jimmy Nielsen notched his 10th shutout of the season, having to make just three saves and facing just one corner kick, in the 76th minute.

FORMER KANSAS CITY CHIEFS AND NEW ORLEANS SAINTS offensive lineman Willie Roaf poses with a bust of himself during the induction ceremony for the Pro Football Hall of Fame on Saturday night in Canton, Ohio.

Linemen lead charge into pro football shrine CANTON, OHIO — Willie Roaf was in an unfamiliar role — the center of attention in front of a large crowd, being singled out for something good. No, make that: Something great. With current Saints players standing and cheering, the former New Orleans and Kansas City offensive tackle led a group of linemen into the Pro Football Hall of Fame on Saturday night, a six-man induction that honored those who relish the less-than-glorious role. Four linemen were inducted — Roaf, Chris Doleman, Cortez Kennedy and Dermontti Dawson, along with running back Curtis Martin and 1950s cornerback Jack Butler. The lineman’s speech was short and humble, befitting those who played their stellar careers in the scrums rather than the spotlight. “You know, it’s an offensive lineman,� said Roaf, who was very hard to get around on the field. “I didn’t get singled out in front of a large audience very often, and when I did, it was usually by a referee who was singling me out by saying, ‘Holding No. 77.’ “That’s not going to happen today. And it wasn’t too often when I played.� Roaf was one of the greatest players in Saints history, so good that he regularly made the Pro Bowl even though New Orleans had only one winning season in his nine years there. His induction gave the franchise something to celebrate after an offseason clouded by its bounty scandal.

Sadler Nationwide winner NEWTON, IOWA — Elliott Sadler rebounded from the disappointment of his jumped-restart penalty last week in Indianapolis to win the NASCAR Nationwide Race at Iowa Speedway on Saturday night. Sadler denied Ricky Stenhouse Jr. a fourth straight victory at Iowa Speedway, and increased his lead in the series standings to 18 points over Austin Dillon. Sadler won the pole with a track-record qualifying speed of 135.141 mph and was near or at the front of the pack the entire race. He overtook Justin Allgaier on the 192nd lap and went on to his fourth victory of the season. Allgaier was second, followed by Sam Hornish Jr., Michael Annett and Stenhouse. Danica Patrick finished 11th.

Furyk retains Bridgestone lead Montoya takes Pocono pole AKRON, OHIO — A steady diet of pars kept Jim Furyk in the lead Saturday in the Bridgestone Invitational, but not by much. Furyk made his only birdie on the par-5 second hole and had to rely on a couple of strong par saves on the back nine at Firestone for an even-par 70, giving him a one-shot lead over Louis Oosthuizen going into the final round of this World Golf Championship. Tiger Woods broke par for the first time all week, though his 68 left him 11 shots behind on a Firestone course where he has won seven times.

Peoples up by three at 3M BLAINE, MINN. — David Peoples matched his career best with a 10-under 62 on Saturday to take a three-stroke lead in the Champions Tour’s 3M Championship.

LONDON — He says he’s done looking at the world through goggles. And taking all his directions from the black line on the bottom of a pool. There’s no need to restart the debate over whether Michael Phelps is the greatest Olympian ever, at least not on the night he walked off the pool deck and out of competitive swimming for good. Or so he said. “I could probably sum it up in a couple of words: I did it,� Phelps said when asked what he would write about Saturday night in the journal he’s keeping. He seemed certain those are his last words on an Olympic career like no other. Twice as many golds (18) and more medals (22) than anyone else. Bob Bowman, who coached the swimmer since he was 11 and became a kind of surrogate when Phelps’ parents divorced, sounded almost as certain. That probably explained why he was fighting back tears the whole night. “I think we’ve had a great end to a great run and there’s not much more he can do. I guess if he finds after a few years he’s searching for something and thinks he can find it in swimming, he could look at it. But I don’t think he will,� Bowman said. “I think he’s ready to explore other things. He’s done all he can do here.� But a few minutes later, someone asked the coach how much longer the 27-year-old Phelps could compete at a world-class level. Bowman didn’t have to think long. His voice got a lot steadier, too. “He could probably go eight years.� he said. “He’d have to swim shorter events. I don’t think he’d swim a 400, but physically, I don’t think he would be limited that much.� Do the math, keeping in mind the strides made in conditioning older athletes in recent years. Phelps would be 31 in Rio in 2016, and 35 by the time the International Olympic Committee pitches its tent for another Summer Games four years after that. Former U.S. teammate Gary Hall won the 50-meter gold at age 29 at the Athens Olympics. Dara Torres, who was the only swimmer on either the U.S. men’s or women’s teams to compete in five Olympics, as well as the oldest to win a medal — three silvers at 2008 Beijing Games — was 41 when she finally bowed out. And she narrowly missed qualifying for the team here. The only math Phelps was interested in on this night was his own. “One of the biggest things that I’ve always said to myself is I’ll never swim at the age of 30. I wanted to be done before I hit the age of 30. One of the biggest things is I know if I go three more years, then you just go another one,� he said. “There are other things that I want to do in my life,� Phelps added, “and I’m not sure staring at a black line for four hours a day is one of those.� What Phelps wants to do at the moment is stop. Let’s see how long that lasts.

BOX SCORE Rangers 4, Royals 2 Texas

hit a sacrifice fly in the fourth and an RBI single with two outs in the sixth inning. The Rangers could have scored more runs in the third if not for a gaffe on the bases. Hamilton stopped at second on Adrian Beltre’s single before Nelson Cruz’s grounder caromed off the glove of Kansas City shortstop Alcides Escobar for an error. The Royals, however, converted that into a double play when Beltre was caught between second and third bases and tagged for an out. Cruz attempted to go to second on the play and was out to end the inning. “I was trying to get a double play, but not like that,” Escobar said. “I just picked up the ball and threw it back to Getz and then he threw it back to me.” Richard Gwin/Journal-World Photo

MIKE CARLSON, OF OMAHA, NEB., DRIVES A GOLF BALL DEEP on Saturday at the Professional Long Drive Championship at Eagle Bend Golf Course. Carlson beat Jeff Gavin, of Toronto, in a three-ball playoff.

Long-driver plays through wind for win By Jesse Newell jnewell@ljworld.com

Jeff Gavin was ready to accept the trophy. Event organizer John Novosel had just declared Gavin the winner of the Professional Long Drive Championship at Eagle Bend Golf Course on Saturday, but just before stepping forward for a TV interview, Gavin stopped when he heard the bad news. Novosel had misspoke. Gavin had, in fact, tied Mike Carlson in the shootout round, with both players posting identical drives of 351 yards. Carlson made the most of his second chance, winning the three-ball playoff with a 345-yard drive to win the $2,500 first prize. “It feels like a huge gift, a huge blessing frankly to be able to compete with these guys,” Carlson said. “These guys are worldranked, top 20 in the world. That’s the kind of caliber that are here. ... To walk away with a win is something special.” Carlson, a 29-year-old from Omaha, Neb., drove to Lawrence with his wife, Amy, and infant son, Harvey, on Friday night. The fourth-year long driver, who has competed at the world championships three times, stayed consistent, blasting a 350yard drive in round one and a 349-yard drive in round two before advancing to the four-person shootout round. The 10 competitors competed in tough conditions Saturday, facing a headwind from the north and also high humidity. “We’re already swinging too hard most of the time, so when the wind blows in your face, you want to swing harder,” Carlson said. “That’s really the opposite of what you want to do any time you hit into the wind. You want to swing not quite as fast and swing freely and confidently.”

Once Gavin and Carlson reached the playoff, they alternated shots, with Gavin going first. “I wasn’t trying to just put one in play; I was trying to swing for the fences,” Gavin said. “I wanted to put up a number for the fans, and I didn’t catch on in the center of the (club) face. That’s what happens in these. If I could’ve hit one hard on the first one, I would have put the pressure on.” Instead, Gavin’s ball sailed out of bounds, and Carlson — who later said he was trying to stay simple with his shot — knocked his first playoff ball into the grid 345 yards away. The Toronto native Gavin never could match the shot, sending two more drives out of bounds to give Carlson the win. All that after Gavin had thought a few minutes earlier he was the champion. “It was like, ‘Woohoo,’ then there was a little bit of deflation there,” Gavin said. “I tried to rebound, come back, and I knew I had to buckle down and try not to think about that and hit a good ball out there. ... It is what it is. I hit it good today, and I’m going to take some good things away from this.” One of the fastest longdrive swingers in the world, Gavin — with a build much like former baseball slugger Mark McGwire — posted club speeds Saturday up to 148 miles per hour with ball speeds up to 212 mph. De Soto native Troy Templeton took third, posting a 334-yard drive in the shootout round after launching a 357-yarder in round two. Reigning world champion Carl Wolter was fourth with a drive of 323 yards in the shootout round. He also had the longest drive of the day: a 359-yard blast in round two. The event will be televised later this month on Metro Sports.

Years in the pool paying off for Sloan By Benton Smith basmith@ljworld.com

MULTIPLE-SPORT ATHLETES AND TWIN BROTHER AND SISTER, BRANDON AND MADDIE MCCAFFREY are competitive in each of the various sports they play but say that the competition has always been friendly between the two of them. The two are approaching their senior year at Bishop Seabury Academy and hope to go to college together afterward.

Seabury twins trot together By Benton Smith basmith@ljworld.com

When Brandon and Maddie McCaffrey say they do everything together, they aren’t kidding. The twin siblings have more in common than their brown locks of hair and lively smiles. Their easy-going personalities keep them entertained as they joke back and forth. It comes as no surprise that they have the same friends. They even share a car. The list of ties that bind the fraternal twins to one another goes on and on, but as they enter their senior year at Bishop Seabury Academy, one thing Brandon and Maddie know will keep them close is their love for cross country. The brother and sister have been running or playing around with one sport or another further back than they can remember. Brandon, a Class 1A all-state cross country runner as a junior, plays basketball and golf at Seabury, as well. Maddie’s schedule is even busier, with cross country and volleyball in the fall, basketball in the winter and soccer and swimming in the spring.

Seabury is only able to offer an array of programs because kids like the McCaffreys choose to participate in multiple seasons. They are throwback athletes who put the needs of their school and teammates before their own.” — Bishop Seabury Academy athletic director Eric Nelson “Some days it’s tiring, but I like it enough that I don’t mind it at all,” Maddie said. Added Brandon: “I get tired watching her.” Seabury athletics director Eric Nelson said neither twin’s contributions at the school have gone unnoticed. “In a 1A program, students do not have the luxury of specializing in a sport,” Nelson said. “Seabury is only able to offer an array of programs because kids like the McCaffreys choose to participate in multiple seasons. They are throwback athletes who put the needs of their school and teammates before their own.”

As involved as they are year-round, the twins list cross country as their favorite athletic endeavor. Their parents, Brian and Leslie, were runners, and Brandon started trotting along with them when he was small. “I’ve just kind of grown up with it and not really not been around it,” said Brandon, who finished 12th at the 1A state meet in 2011. For Maddie, who also earned all-state honors last year and took 10th individually at state as the Seahawks won the 1A title, fondness for her teammates and coach Christi Douglas are just a few of the factors that make cross country enjoyable. Being able to share the sport with Brandon makes it even better. “He’s my biggest fan,” Maddie said. Brandon remembers how he and the rest of Seabury’s boys team felt when the girls won the first state athletic championship in the school’s history last fall. “I got goosebumps, I was so happy for them,” Brandon said. “We were just as happy as they were. It felt like we had a pretty big part in it, in helping them train and everything.”

Douglas said having the McCaffrey twins around has improved the cross country program as a whole, because they are both team-oriented and have the right work ethic. “They’re both outstanding people, and they create a positive atmosphere everywhere they go,” the coach said. That support extends from one twin to another, too. Outside of some old basketball battles in the back yard and determining whose turn it is to pay for gas, little conflict arises between the brother and sister. Their tactfulness should serve them well in the coming school year as Brandon and Maddie will be two of Seabury’s five student prefects — leaders elected by the school’s students and faculty. With so many activities and responsibilities, the twins have a lot to look forward to as seniors. “Going to the same school since seventh grade,” Maddie said, “I think you build it up a lot more.” No matter what happens, they’ll be appreciative of sharing the experience with one another. “I’m just trying to make the last year memorable,” Brandon said, “and give it my all.”

Ben Sloan still remembers his initial tryout for the Lawrence Aquahawks. Just 7 years old at the time, he and his older brother and sister, Logan and Katie, were all swimming to see if they could be a part of the club. The youngest Sloan wasn’t new to swimming, but he just couldn’t manage to get comfortable in the water. “Hated it,” he recalled. “Absolutely hated it.” Yet here he is, nearly 11 years later, wrapping up his 10th season with the Aquahawks by competing at the USA Swimming Senior Central Zone Championships at the Lawrence Indoor Aquatic Center. After a year of watching his siblings swim for the club, Sloan decided to give it another try and stuck with it. “My first few meets that I went to started my love for the sport,” Sloan said. “It’s cool — especially when you’re younger — the more you put in, the more you get out.” Seemingly with every practice, his times would drop. That’s when Sloan started to realize the pool would become a second home for him. Now a Free State High senior, he first worked with Aquahawks coach Justin Clossen during his first few years with the club. When coaching 8and 9-year-olds, the coach said, it is hard to know how their swimming careers will turn out. But there were promising signs with Sloan, particularly his attention to details. “He’s very calm. He’s a very intelligent young man,” Clossen said. “And he really takes his time and thinks about things.” Sloan used to play soccer and swim, but around the age of 12, he gave up his other sporting love. “It got to that point where I needed to choose,” he said, “and the talent level was not quite the same in soccer as it was in swimming,” There began Sloan’s year-round commitment to swimming. He’s now at a point where he specializes in the 200 IM, 200 fly and 100 fly. In preparation, he swims 45,000 yards or more a week. “It’s frustrating almost,” he admitted, “because it

Clossen said the Aquahawks have that in mind, too, even as they train younger children. “We don’t necessarily want the fastest little 12-year-old in the country,” the coach said. “We want the kid to keep developing all the way through and when they go to college have their most successful years there.” Sloan’s personal goal has always been and remains to be landing a scholarship with an NCAA Division I program. A few weeks away from the beginning of his senior year, he feels good about his options. Sloan has spoken with a number of schools, mostly Division II at this point. But the first week of July he received a phone call from a coach at the University of Massachusetts, an Atlantic 10 program. “That was pretty emotional for me, because 10 years of all this hard work was finally being recognized and paying off,” Sloan said. “It’s just an unreal feeling to know there are schools out there that are interested in you and want you.” He’ll leave Monday for the Northeast and take unofficial visits to New York University and Columbia. But his most highly anticipated trip will be to UMass. Regardless of which school Sloan ends up choosing, his Aquahawks coach knows what made him a college-level swimmer. “He’s not the biggest kid, he’s not the strongest kid,” Clossen said, “but he pays attention to his stroke technique, he pays attention to the coaching staff. He works extremely hard.”

Lawrence, Free State cross country squads look to reload By Chris Duderstadt cduderstadt@ljworld.com

Members of the Lawrence High and Free State cross country teams are not letting the heat and humidity prevent them from getting ready for their respective seasons. LHS head coach Brian Anderson and Free State head coach Steve Heffernan are leading their teams’ summer running programs for those are all willing and able to meet on weekday mornings. “Well, you know, it is not a mandatory thing, so we’re excited when we have people show up,” Heffernan said, noting that 25 to 45 runners show up each day. “It’s been our best summer of conditioning in the time I’ve been at Free State the past 15 years.” The Firebirds’ girls team is attempting to return to the Class 6A state meet after placing ninth overall in 2011. Although Free State will lose Lynn Robinson, who took seventh at state last year, Heffernan believes the team still has the talent to make back-to-back appearances. “She finished on a really good note last year and there is no question that we couldn’t have qualified without her being on the team, but I think at the same time, we’ve got some girls who are really ready

MEMBERS OF THE FREE STATE HIGH CROSS COUNTRY TEAM HEAD WEST on Ninth Street near Centennial for an early run on the morning of July 25. Both FSHS and Lawrence High have used the summer break to get into shape for the upcoming season, which starts Sept. 1. to step into the leadership roles that have been left ... and I think they are going to do a fantastic job,” Heffernan said. Rosemary Newsome, Bailey Sullivan, Molly McCord and Olivia Lonely will return from the 2011 state-qualifying team. With those four experienced returners and a few talented underclassmen, Heffernan thinks the Firebirds have a shot at another successful season. For the Firebirds’ boys team, Heffernan is counting on some underclassmen to step up after losing 2010 state qualifiers

Kain Anderson and Kamp Wiebe to graduation. “We’ve got a strong nucleus of sophomores, which are guys that are a little bit young, but they really put a lot of work in over the past 12 months getting ready for this cross country season,” Heffernan said.

Lions also rebuilding The Lawrence High boys team is in a similar situation to Free State — runners who had been on the borderline between the junior varsity and varsity levels will be expected to compete for po-

sitions on the top squad. Lions coach Brian Anderson believes that other than returning state qualifier Gavin Fischer, competition to fill the varsity squad is wide open. “Chester Lewis should be up there if he comes back ... We knew this was going to be a rebuilding year,” Anderson said. “We’ve also got some kids who have been working hard this summer, so we’re going to see what they come up with. Philip Gabler, Adam Edmonds and Eddie Wilson have been working really hard.” Despite not being sure

how his varsity team will pan out, Anderson is optimistic that the competition for spots will help the Lions improve. “I’d really like to see them qualify for state,” Anderson said. “Gavin, he’s got some goals ... some really hefty goals that he is trying to obtain. The other guys have really stepped up from where they were last year. We’ve got about 10 of them that are running pretty strong right now.” While Fischer is the lone returning state qualifier for the boys team, Grace Morgan is only run-

ner from the girls team who ran in the state meet last year. “Well (Morgan) is going to be one of the captains, so she is taking on a good leadership role,” Anderson said. “She had a pretty good track season this year. The other captain, Emily McEntire, she stepped up this year, and she did track and she had a good track season as well. We’re looking at a lot of leadership from the two of them.” Morgan and McEntire placed fourth and 22nd, respectively, at the regional meet with junior Laura Neilsen following closely behind in 28th place, but there was a 17-runner gap between Neilsen and Lawrence’s next runner. The Lions’ Nos. 5, 6 and 7 runners at the meet were all freshmen, though, and Anderson thinks the experience from the regional race will pay off this year. “I think it really helps us a lot,” Anderson said. “Last year, we knew was going to be a rebuilding year and we’ve got five sophomores, some freshmen and a new senior that are going to step up and help us out.” The Lions will begin their season Sept. 1 in the Manhattan Invite, while the Firebirds will run in the Greg Wilson Classic on the same day in Overland Park.

Perhaps it’s just coincidence, maybe not, but McLemore’s Blue Team — which featured Elijah Johnson, Jeff Withey, Perry Ellis and Travis Releford — fared a lot better with McLemore in the lineup Saturday than when he was off to the side riding an exercise bike. The Blue team outscored the Naadir Tharpe, Andrew White, Jamari Traylor and Kevin Youngled Red Team, 30-15, the first quarter. The Reds outscored the Blues, 25-11, the second quarter before the lineups were mixed and matched for the third and fourth stanzas. “I was getting going until I got the injury,” McLemore said. “I was playing defense, sliding, and I pulled it a little bit. I’ll sit out a couple days and rest it up and be ready to go Tuesday.” Of his outside shot, McLemore said: “It has been looking good. I’ve been working on my ballhandling and my shooting. Hopefully I’ll be hitting a lot of big shots overseas.” Self, who has been impressed with McLemore’s work in the 10 practices that were allotted to the Jayhawks by the NCAA, said McLemore could be the best defensive player the Jayhawks have ever had and is one of the most athletic players KU has had. “I definitely like it,” McLemore said of his coach’s praise. “It is a motivator. I don’t think it changes anything. I’m going to play my game and do whatever coach wants me to do.” Aside from McLemore ... everybody’s healthy heading into today’s travel day to Switzerland. Senior guard Elijah Johnson, who had arthroscopic knee surgery in April, had several pinpoint passes for easy baskets and unofficially had 10 points (including one made three) in Saturday’s four-quarter scrimmage that included the international 24-second clock. “I feel great. My knee is getting stronger. I just need to get in better shape,” Johnson said.

KANSAS UNIVERSITY MEN’S BASKETBALL COACH BILL SELF WATCHES HIS PLAYERS scrimmage on Saturday at the Jayhawks’ practice facility near Allen Fieldhouse. Johnson, who is KU’s vocal leader on the court, said the 10 practices have been beneficial. “Right now, the coaches are instilling things in their (eight scholarship freshmen) heads that they usually don’t learn until October. It gives them a head start,” Johnson said. “It gives them a chance to warm up. I think they need that extra time to be able to settle down and study.” As far as the intensity at the practices ... “Coach is nice right now. He is not pressuring us. He is letting us have fun right now,” Johnson said. “He wants us to enjoy it, let people realize they are at Kansas. He’s letting people breathe. When it’s time to knuckle down, it’ll definitely get more intense.” Senior center Withey was dominant with 16 points and several blocks. KU sophomore backup point guard Naadir Tharpe had 11 points and had limited turnovers. “Today you saw him on his best day,” said Self, who let the media watch the final pre-European workout. “Naadir has been hot and cold to say the least. He’s had problems passing the ball all over the place. Today he scrimmaged pretty well. He’s fast. He can make a shot. It’d be nice if he could settle in as backup point guard. I don’t know yet because he hasn’t been very consistent so far.” Freshman guard Milt Doyle had 14 points, showing a nice touch

from the outside on several jumpers and like most freshmen, missing badly on others. Frosh guard Rio Adams hit a three and had six points. Perry Ellis looked comfortable inside in cashing five buckets. Self said he doesn’t really care much about the upcoming games in Europe with the plan to play everybody between 18 and 20 minutes a game. “What we’ve gotten out of it, we’ve already gotten out of it and that’s practice,” Self said. “Guys do work hard for the most part. We’ve done a lot of offensive breakdown stuff, a lot in 10 practices. I want to give us the best chance to win games in early November. We’ve got some big ones in early November — with eight freshmen I think this gives us a better chance.” Notes: KU coach Self said Saturday that frosh Rio Adams, 6-3 from Seattle’s Rainier Beach High, has qualified academically, thus will make the trip. He said he received word from the NCAA Clearinghouse regarding Adams on Wednesday or Thursday. In July it was reported that frosh Milt Doyle, 6-4 from Chicago Marshall High, had qualified. Both had some concerns about their academic eligibility heading into the final days of the 2011-12 academic year. Self said all of KU’s incoming players are eligible ... The Jayhawks will travel all day today, flying commercially, and arrive in Zurich sometime Monday morning.

When Clint Bowen first came back to the Kansas University football program this past offseason, his focus was on reconnecting with his hometown and the joy of seeing some familiar faces on a daily basis. Now, it’s time for football. “For me, personally, I’ve invested a large part of my life into this Bowen program,” Bowen, KU’s special teams coordinator and defensive backs coach, said Saturday. “I was looking through the media guide today, and I think it’s something like 17 of the last 19 years that I’ve either been a player or a coach in this program.” Because of his past — and the passion associated with it — Bowen is as excited as anybody about the current direction of his alma mater. “(Our goal) is to get this thing back to where we all know it should be as Kansas fans and Kansas people,” he said. “We have an elite university, we have great facilities, we have everything in place that we need to get this thing where it should be. That’s what we’re working toward doing.” Throughout his career, Bowen has worked with a lot of demanding head coaches. Working under new KU coach Charlie Weis falls in line with that, and Bowen said the best part about Weis’ presence is that everyone knows what’s expected every day. “The bar’s set high,” he said. “And our kids un-

AMERICAN LEAGUE ROUNDUP

Hernandez blanks Yanks The Associated Press

Mariners 1, Yankees 0 NEW YORK — Felix Hernandez dominated the Yankees in their own ballpark again, pitching his third shutout of the season to lead Seattle to a win on a sunny, sticky Saturday afternoon. Hernandez outpitched Hiroki Kuroda in a duel of pitchers who haven’t lost since June. Mike Carp hit an RBI single in the second inning for Seattle, which bounced back from having its seven-game winning streak ended Friday night. The Yankees have lost 10 of 15. Hernandez (10-5) just didn’t give the Yankees any room. After Robinson Cano doubled with two outs in the first, Hernandez didn’t allow a runner to second. He began the ninth against the top of the Yankees order and retired Curtis Granderson, Derek Jeter and Robinson Cano in order, fanning Cano to end the game in a breezy 2 hours, 32 minutes. Seattle

Reds 5, Pirates 4 CINCINNATI — Scott Rolen tripled and scored the go-ahead run in the eighth inning as Cincinnati won its fifth straight game. The Reds have won 15 of 16 and opened a 5 1/2game lead over Pittsburgh in the NL Central. It was 4-all when Rolen led off the eighth with a line drive off the rightcenter field wall, beating the relay with a headfirst slide into third base.

DAVE BARRY • COMMENTARY

Dong Dong bounces into Olympic legend By Dave Barry McClatchy Newspapers

LONDON — To the list of legendary athletes who have won Olympic gold medals under great pressure — names such as Jesse Owens, Babe Ruth and Charles Lindbergh — we can now add another name, a name that will stand as a symbol of a person who, when the chips were down, the irons were in the fire, the backs were against the wall, the wolves were at the door, push had come to shove and there was no tomorrow, stepped up to the plate and gave 110 percent, sucking it up, reaching deep down inside, seizing the baton of effort and banging it upon the gong of competition with a ringing sound that will echo down the hallowed halls of sporting history and into the trophy case of athletic immortality. That name is Dong Dong. Until these Olympic games, few people had ever heard of Dong Dong, outside of roughly 1.3 billion Chinese. Because Dong Dong — or, as he is known in China, where the surname comes first, “Dong Dong” — competes in the trampoline, which a lot of people didn’t even realize was

JUDGES WATCH THE TRAMPOLINE PERFORMANCE OF GOLD MEDALLIST DONG DONG OF CHINA on Friday at the 2012 Summer Olympics in London. an Olympic sport. There are quite a few sports like that here. For example, did you know that there is an Olympic event called “Women’s Laser Radial?” Well there is. It is also known as (really) “Women’s Singlehanded Dinghy.” I don’t know what goes on in that event, and I frankly don’t want to know. But getting back to Dong Dong: He was one of 16 competitors in the Olympic men’s trampoline event, which was easily the most impressive international trampoline

competition I personally have ever witnessed. You would not believe how high these men bounce. Q. How high do they bounce? A. While they’re up there, they take a tea interval. But seriously, they bounce spectacularly high, and while they’re in mid-air they perform complex gymnastic maneuvers. If a normal person — me, for example — were to bounce to that altitude, the most I would be able to accomplish, maneuver-wise, would

be go, quote, “AIEEEEE,” and perhaps commence the process of soiling my undergarments. But the Olympic trampoliners calmly execute all kinds of twists and flips and turns up there, and when they come down they immediately bounce way back up and do still more. And nobody bounces higher, or flips around more, than Dong Dong. Going into the final round of the Olympic competition, with the gold medal on the line, he had performed brilliantly. He stood firmly atop the

SASHA V. SPAIN Olympics

Volleyball The U.S. men’s team blew a two-set lead and lost to Russia in five, snapping an 11-match winning streak in Olympic play. Maxim Mikhaylov scored 27 points for No. 2 Russia in the 27-29, 19-25, 26-24, 25-16, 15-8 victory. Sergey Tetyukhin spiked for match point.

The hosts pulled in two more golds on the final day of the Olympic regatta, and another in women’s pursuit at the London Velodrome. The U.S. men’s basketball team was pushed — and then some. Two days after running and gunning to a recordshattering 83-point win, the United States needed a strong finish from LeBron James to eke out a 9994 victory over Lithuania. The Americans trailed 84-82 with 5:50 to play, but James scored nine of his 20 points in the final four minutes to help the Eric Gay/AP Photo U.S. remain unbeaten.

Linas Kleiza scored 25 for Lithuania, which shot 58 percent and outrebounded the U.S. 42-37. There was no such test for Serena Williams, who blew away the field at Wimbledon. The American star became only the second woman to achieve a Golden Slam, routing Maria Sharapova 6-0, 6-1 in the most lopsided women’s final in Olympic history. The victory completed a remarkable run of domination by the No. 4-seeded Williams, who lost only 17 games in six matches en route to her first singles gold medal. She went 13-0 this summer at the All England Club, where she won her fifth Wimbledon title a month ago. “I was so focused here,” she said. “I remember I was serving and I was thinking: ‘Serena, this is your best chance to win a gold medal. You’re at Wimbledon, you’re on grass, you play great on grass, pull it together, just win this.’ And that’s what I thought about.” Top-seeded Bob and Mike Bryan also won Olympic gold for the U.S., beating Michael Llodra and Jo-Wilfried Tsonga of

standings; the question was, could he keep it up? Dong Dong was the last to bounce. As he waited his turn, he appeared calm, almost relaxed. There was no way to know what he was thinking. Something in Chinese, would be my guess. And then it was time. “Representing the People’s Republic of China,” said the p.a. announcer, “Dong Dong!” The crowd applauded, then fell silent as Dong Dong began his routine.

SERENA WIILIAMS OF THE UNITED STATES REACTS during her match against Maria Sharapova of Russia on Saturday at the All England Lawn Tennis Club in Wimbledon at the 2012 Summer Olympics.

France 6-4, 7-6 (2) in the men’s doubles final. Roger Federer will try to complete a career Golden Slam when he plays Andy Murray of Britain in the men’s final today. The rest of the Olympic action Saturday:

Beach Volleyball Two-time gold medalists Kerri Walsh Jennings and Misty May-Treanor beat the Netherlands in straight sets to advance to the tournament quarterfinals. The Americans topped Marleen van Iersel and Sanne Keizer 21-13, 21-12. Reigning world champions Emanuel and Alison edged Germany 21-16, 2114 to advance to the men’s quarters. The Brazilians, the top-seeded team at the London Games, eliminated Jonathan Erdmann and Kay Matysik. Triathlon Nicola Spirig of Switzerland won the gold medal in a photo finish with a Swedish challenger at the Olympic triathlon. The end of the race was so close that both women celebrated after crossing the line. Spirig held off Lisa Norden to claim gold in 1 hour, 59.48 seconds. The runners were given the same time, and Spirig was declared the winner after a few minutes of uncertainty. Erin Densham of Australia took bronze on the course through Hyde Park in central London in 1:59.50. Thousands of spectators lined the route. Fans do not need tickets to watch triathlon events at the London Games.

Boxing The British boxing team is on a remarkable roll at its home Olympics, and that’s just one reason the Indian team is furious. Second-seeded light welterweight Tom Stalker beat India’s Manoj Kumar 20-16 for the 10th British win in 11 fights in London, moving six boxers to the brink of medal qualification. Although Stalker and Kumar appeared to be evenly matched, Kumar and his coaching staff criticized the judges and the tournament after the fifth loss for a seven-man team that arrived in London hoping to add to its single Olympic boxing medal. India did get a nice fight from light flyweight Devendro Laishram, who posted a 16-11 upset of fourth-seeded Serdamba Purevdorj of Mongolia. Cuba’s Roniel Iglesias upset top-seeded Brazilian light welterweight Everton Dos Santos, while top-seeded light heavyweight Julio La Cruz of Cuba overwhelmed Jordan’s Ihab Almatbouli. Diving China’s Wu Mingxia cruised into the 3-meter springboard final after qualifying in the top spot during the Olympic semifinals. Wu, who is seeking her record-tying sixth Olympic diving medal, totaled 394.400 points in the five rounds, giving her a lead of 32.30 points over second-place Tania Cagnotto of Italy, who had 362.100. Wu already owns three gold medals in 3-meter synchro, as well as one silver and one bronze. One more would tie her with retired Chinese star Guo Jingjing, as well as give China its fifth diving gold of the London Games. Cassidy Krug of the U.S. was fifth at 345.600 in her first Olympics. Her teammate, Christina Loukas, advanced to today’s final in sixth at 339.750. Shooting American Jamie Lynn Gray won the gold medal in women’s 50-meter three-position rifle shoot-

pins in the Olympic arenas, which for security reasons they do not. Higher and higher went Dong Dong, so high that you almost thought he should wear protection, thrusting upward again and again, as if he were going to go through the very roof and penetrate deep into the annals of trampoline history, which would be a mandatory two-tenths of a point deduction. Then, suddenly, Dong Dong finished. The entire arena roared, then went limp. Many people would have lit cigarettes, if smoking were legal at the Olympics. We waited for the judges’ scores... Waiting... Waiting... And there it was: Dong Dong done done it! A mighty cheer went up. Dong Dong hugged everybody, and everybody hugged Dong Dong. I even felt like hugging somebody, but I was sitting in the press section, where hugging is frowned upon because we’ve all been wearing the same clothes for nine straight days and smell like credential-wearing dumpsters. Still, walking out of the arena, I felt pretty good. Maybe I need to check out Women’s Singlehanded Dinghy. ing, setting two Olympic records along the way. Gray clinched gold on her final shot with a 10.8 — just 0.1 off a perfect score. Ivana Maksimovic of Serbia won the silver, and Adela Sykorova of the Czech Republic was third. Italy’s Jessica Rossi won the gold medal in women’s trap shooting, missing just one of 100 shots to set a world record. Her lone miss came on the 18th shot of the 25-shot final. Zuzana Stefecekova eventually won the silver in a shoot-off, topping Delphine Reau of France.

Water Polo Vanja Udovicic scored three goals and Serbia beat the United States 11-6 in the men’s tournament. It was the first loss of the London Games for the Americans, who will face three-time defending champion Hungary in their last group game. Soccer South Korea topped host Britain 5-4 in a penalty shootout to advance to the semifinals of the men’s tournament. Ki Sung-yueng hit the winning penalty after Daniel Sturridge missed Britain’s fifth spot kick. The game was tied at 1 after regulation and extra time. South Korea moves on to face Brazil, which beat Honduras in the quarterfinals. Japan and Mexico play in the other semifinal. Cycling Britain is dominating the Olympic cycling slate. The women’s pursuit team won in a time of 3 minutes, 14.051 seconds to lower the world record they set earlier in the day. The U.S. grabbed the silver medal, and Canada beat Australia for the bronze. The winning riders pumped their fists while doing a victory lap, cheered on by Paul McCartney and about 6,000 of their newest friends. Rowing Triumphs for Britain in men’s four and the lightweight women’s double sculls sparked more scenes of jubilation at Dorney Lake and took the host country’s tally of golds to four, one more then New Zealand. Britain finished with nine medals — four gold, two silver and three bronze — to surpass the country’s record total of eight from the 1908 Olympics. Those games were also in London.

SOFIA GALARZA LIU, COLLECTION MANAGER AT THE SPENCER MUSEUM OF ART, RETURNS a panel of Haitian art from the Mary Lou Vansant Hughes Collection on Monday during a tour of the museum’s collections. The museum has about 1,300 pieces on public display each day, while the rest of the about 37,000 other pieces of art in the museum’s possession are in storage. TOP: A collection of Japanese snuff bottles are separated in the museum’s storage.

Spencer Museum of Art ‘filled to the gills’ with thousands of pieces in storage By Sara Shepherd sshepherd@ljworld.com

If you think there’s a lot to see at the Spencer Museum of Art, you should see what it has in storage. On a typical day, roughly 1,300 art objects are on view throughout the galleries. Hidden away — in meticulously indexed containers and acid-free packing — are some 37,000 more, including thousands of pieces that have never been displayed since the museum opened more than 30 years ago. It’s not that the museum is trying to keep them a secret. In fact, more than ever before, the Spencer is undertaking efforts that will enable more objects see the light of day. But a combination of factors, from light

Treasure trove The Spencer has two main storage areas: one in the museum and one in Spooner Hall. And it’s a big part of Sofia Galarza Liu’s job to keep track of everything in them. Galarza Liu, collection manager, says holdings have more than doubled in size in the past 30 years. Especially as the number of works grows, it’s critical to be able to look up what the museum has in its collection — information that’s accessible to anyone — and A DRAWER OF JAPANESE SWORD GUARDS in storage at precisely where each item is the Spencer Museum of Art. stored — details about which, for security reasons, are kept sensitivity to what’s in fash- space, we wouldn’t want to secret from everyone but ion, determine how to use put all the collection up at a Galarza Liu and a small circle the coveted real estate on time,” says Kate Meyer, as- of museum staffers. the museum walls. sistant curator of works on Please see HIDDEN, page 2C “If we had miles of display paper.

Elvis impersonators revved up for show By Alex Garrison acgarrison@ljworld.com

WADE MORROW, who will be participating in the first Elvis Spectacular on Saturday in downtown Lawrence, was at the Douglas County Fair on Thursday in full Elvis mode to promote the event. Morrow is also a square-dance caller and was at the fair for a performance with the Happy Time Squares square-dance organization.

Elvis will be back in the building next weekend. Well, OK, not the building. Just the park. The annual Rev It Up Hot Rod Hullabaloo will be Saturday in South Park. It’s always been a celebration of all things vintage cars, but this year, organizers say, it’ll also be a place for Elvis impersonators to sing and swing their hips. The Hullabaloo is teaming up with the first Downtown Lawrence Elvis Spectacular, mixing nostalgia, vintage cars and some old-fashioned rock ’n’ roll.

Rosie O’Brien will be competing in the Elvis parade and contest — a quirky pick for winner, given her gender, certainly, but especially because nostalgia doesn’t quite come naturally to her: She’s just 18. O’Brien graduated this spring from Lawrence High School, where she was a wellknown singer and performer. Earlier this summer, a friend of a friend involved in the car show suggested O’Brien try her hand at being an Elvis. She eventually agreed, found a petite 1950s silver suit, and started watching YouTube videos of a young king performing “Blue Suede Shoes.” The vocal register has been

a bit of a struggle, she says, but she’s getting the hang of the song and plans to perform it while playing guitar. “I’m slowly working on it,” she says, “but I’m going for it.” Ask if she thinks she could see a future for herself as an impersonator, though, and she’ll give a hearty laugh. “I like performing, but I really want to go into politics,” she says. “I guess that’s like performing.” Wade Morrow will also bring his own flavor to the Elvis extravaganza. He’s a square-dance caller and plans to perform a singing call that’s Please see ELVIS, page 2C

To help, there’s a comprehensive database and, at least at the Spencer, a high-ceilinged, highly organized area with customcrafted shelves, boxes and drawer-liners even California Closets would covet. Paintings are stored, hanging, on upright sliding panels. “We are filled to the gills,” Galarza Liu says. Inside, Galarza Liu twists the handle of a locker-like gray cabinet to reveal a trove of shimmering gold, candy-pink and yellow lustreware, a type of English china from the 1800s. In the next cabinet over, more of the same, totaling hundreds of pieces. The items were part of Sallie Casey Thayer’s 1917 gift that eventually founded Kansas University’s art museum. While a few lustreware pieces have been displayed from time to time, Galarza Liu says, most have not been out of storage since the Spencer opened at its current location in 1978. In other cabinets are drawers housing hundreds of Japanese sword guards, snuff boxes and other small but intricate items with the same story. “I think of these as some of the hidden treasures,” Galarza Liu says.

ONE STORAGE CABINET at the Spencer Museum of Art contains shelves filled with English copper lustreware. The lustreware is among the tens of thousands of pieces the museum has in storage.

WALK-INS WELCOME FRIDAYS Each Friday, the Spencer Museum of Art opens its Print Room to the public. Visitors can request a print, drawing or photograph, and view it up close. Hours are 10 a.m.-noon and 1 p.m.-4 p.m. The museum is at 1301 Miss.

The museum boasts a strong collection of works on paper, particularly northern and Italian Renaissance prints, 17th-century prints, Japanese prints, and 19thand 20th-century prints, drawings and photographs. days, and Meyer can pull anything in the collection upon request. It’s a lot of work, Meyer says, but it gives patrons the opportunity to see minute details of a print or the scale of an artist’s sketch that aren’t conveyed in an online image. “We’re bending over backwards to try to share the collection with people because people are so excited about seeing it,” she says. Finally, the museum’s Project Redefine not only mixes up permanent exhibits but also creates opportunities for more turnover in the collection. For example, the Corpus exhibit — featuring artworks grouped by theme from birth to death — has entire walls of works on paper that will be switched out every few months, even as paintings and sculptures stay put around them. The “Empire of Things” exhibit, hoped to open by the end of the year, will finally display some of those decorative items that haven’t been in fashion for a while, including some from the lustreware cabinet in storage. And, Ercums says, the main floor — Center Court and the surrounding galleries — now gets transformed every few months. “We wanted to make the Spencer into a place that was dynamic,” Ercums says. “If you don’t stay up with us, then you’re going to miss an opportunity to see something you’ve never seen.” — Features reporter Sara Shepherd can be reached at 832-7187.

He doesn’t get out much with it — maybe going 80 miles per hour was slightly more OK when he was young, he says — but when he does, it gives a great excuse to talk about his passion for all things automotive. “I just love cars,” Ward says of why he puts so much love into his hobby and craft. “I used to build

’ve written in the past that quality of light is as important as the quantity of light in photography. This is certainly true in regards to aesthetic qualities but incorrect if there isn’t enough light to capture the image in the first place. As mentioned last week, three controls dictate an exposure: shutter speed, aperture and ISO. In my opinion, the most critical to the success of capturing photographs in low light is the aperture. While shutter speeds and ISO options are common to all cameras, maximum apertures on camera lenses can vary among models. This difference can be significant and determine success or failure in lowlight photography. If you shoot with digital, single-lens reflex cameras, you have the option of switching to a lens with a larger maximum aperture. Fixed lens, point-and-shoot (P&S) cameras don’t give you this option. First, a quick review on aperture and f/stops. On all cameras, apertures are represented by numbers f/2.8, f/4.0, f/16, etc. Also called f/stops, they represent different-sized apertures or lens openings that allow light into the camera. Larger f/stop numbers (11.0, 16.0) equal smaller apertures. Smaller f/stop numbers (2.8, 4.0) equal larger apertures. The smaller the number, the larger the aperture and the better your camera’s ability to photograph in low light. Here are three P&S cameras that are similar in

THE MAXIMUM APERTURE of a fixed-lens camera can make a big difference in low-light performance. On most lenses, f/stop-aperture numbers are on the front of the lens just after the focal length range of the lens shown in millimeters. The camera above lists a max aperture at wide-angle at f/2.8 and f/5.8 at telephoto.

many ways except for their maximum aperture. The camera model is followed by the zoom range of the lens, from wide-angle (W) to telephoto (T), and their maximum aperture at each end of that range. Keep in mind that maximum apertures on zoom lenses often get smaller as you zoom to telephoto settings. Canon Powershot S100: 4-120mm, f/2.0(W)f/8.0(T) Nikon Coolpix P310: 24100mm, f/1.8(W)-f/4.9(T) Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX10: 24-384mm, f/3.3(W)-f/5.9(T) In this comparison the

Nikon wins on both ends. Its f/1.8 makes it an excellent low-light camera at wide angle. Let’s consider a low-light situation with an exposure of 1/60th shutter speed, 800 ISO and an aperture of f2.0. In the wide-angle setting, the Canon and Nikon handle this fine. But the Sony’s maximum aperture would not be large enough for that exposure. To compensate, you would need to raise the ISO, potentially losing image quality, or you would need to lower your shutter speed and further risk blurring your shot because of camera shake. In another comparison, though, the Sony has a maximum aperture of f/5.9 at its long telephoto setting, 384mm, that provides more light than the Canon does at its longest telephoto, 120mm at f/8.0. Depending on your priorities as a photographer, comparing maximum apertures at both wide-angle and telephoto settings is a good way to judge a camera’s lowlight potential.

Changing Olympic ideals 2 new accounts offer sharp contrasts

Here are the best-sellers for the week that ended July 28, compiled from data from independent and chain bookstores, book wholesalers and independent distributors nationwide.

Fiction

By John Cherwa Los Angeles Times

LONDON — The evolution of the Olympics through the last 100-plus years can be compared to having your backyard barSusan Bogart, becue turn into restaurant retired, row in Beverly Hills. The Tonganoxie trappings of innocence “‘Catch-22’ by Joseph Heller for my book club, and just having good oldfashioned fun have been and a Magdalen Nabb replaced by unrestrained mystery. I love her.” jingoistic marketing and brand identification. The true sports fan holds to the ideal that the Games are about the athletes. But they’re not. The focus is on branding that will lead to the eventual sale. It happens on all levels: Even photojournalists at the Games are lent lenses worth $5,000 and more by Canon and Nikon in the hope that their distinctive color will be picked up by television or in the Cami Kennedy, background of photos. registered nurse, Then, someone watching Lawrence “‘The Spirit Catches You the Games might think, “If the best photographers in and You Fall Down’ (by the world use that lens, I Anne Fadiman).” should do the same.” The contrast between the way the Olympics used to be and what it is now is clearly spelled out in two books published (along with a glut of other titles) just in time for the Summer Olympics in London. Jack McCallum’s “Dream Team: How Michael, Magic, Larry, Charles, and the Greatest Team of All Time Conquered the World and Susanna Kennedy, Changed the Game of Bas5-year-old, ketball Forever” takes a Lawrence look at the 1992 Summer “‘Discover and Explore’ Games in Barcelona and (by Rosemary Wells).” captures the personalities and egos of the greatest U.S. Olympic basketball team ever assembled. A longtime writer for Sports Illustrated, McCallum clearly argues that the sole motivation behind the creation of the Dream Team was to sell the NBA and its stars. He walks a fine line as observer and reporter — he even admits to occasional awe at being around arguably the most famous athletes on the planet at that Tara Helke, time. McCallum doesn’t homemaker, tell every story, like most Lawrence sportswriters: The line “‘The Righteous Mind: between private lives and Why Good People Are public image is one few Divided by Politics and Re- reporters like to cross and ligion’ by Jonathan Haidt.” even fewer media outlets like to run.

U.S. GYMNASTS GABRIELLE DOUGLAS, second left, Kyla Ross, center back, and Jordan Wieber wave to spectators after the team won the gold medal at the Artistic Gymnastics women’s team final at the 2012 Summer Olympics on Tuesday in London. The focus of the Olympics has increasingly turned toward branding, marketing and nationalism. insights into many of the players, however, like Magic Johnson, which helps us better understand the criticism Johnson has gotten lately for being the self-proclaimed public face of the Dodgers though he hasn’t been to many games. “I never got the idea that (Michael) Jordan was anyone else but Jordan,” McCallum writes. “That goes double for (Larry) Bird. Magic seemed to be a bit contrived, as if he had an on switch that he activated every time a camera was in his radar range. He came close to admitting it himself, stressing that ‘Magic and Earvin are two different people.’” Many of the exploits of the first Dream Team have been told, yet McCallum does it in a way that gives readers a better understanding about the individual players and their motivations than it does about the team (although, sometimes, his basket-by-basket account gets tedious). “Dream Team” also introduces us to some new faces, such as Yugoslavian player and coach Boris Stankovic, who was responsible for this crazy concept of using superstars on the Olympic team. McCallum’s book is a great read for basketball junkies who like to look back at the players who made the NBA more relevant than Major League Baseball (although you would get an argument from some on the two sports). This year’s version of the Dream Team may be

the last. NBA commissioner David Stern has floated a proposal to put an agecap of 23 on the USA Olympic basketball team (Kobe Bryant called the idea “stupid”). Although Stern might just be having some fun stirring it up as he prepares to exit his job in the next few years. It was a very different U.S. Olympic team that traveled to Athens for the 1896 Games. There’s a lot to learn from Jim Reisler’s thin but well-researched “Igniting the Flame: America’s First Olympic Team,” which opens with the boat ride that the loosely assembled team of preppy Ivy Leaguers took across the Atlantic. There were no tryouts for these Games. Instead it was more like Mickey Rooney had gathered up a bunch of his pals and yelled, “Hey, kids, let’s put on a show.” Reisler’s task in researching this project is evident from 40 pages of attribution notes — and the book does have a research paper feel to it, but he manages to tell the story with a good conversational style. Throughout, Reisler provides readers with plenty of amusing gems. Take, for example, that the American athletes thought the Games started on April 18, 1896 — in fact, they began on April 6. How did this mistake happen? The Greeks, Reisler explains, used the Julian calendar while the Americans used the Gregorian: The result was that the Americans didn’t arrive as early as they had hoped.

And, by the way, the winners didn’t receive gold medals; silver medals were awarded to winners and runner-ups received bronze (the practice of giving gold medals didn’t start until 1904). “(James) Connolly and the other Olympic victors,” Reisler writes, “would earn silver medals for these Games, not gold. ... With gold coins the standard currency at the time in many nations, (Greek Crown Prince) Constantine reasoned that gold medals would make it seem that the athletes were being paid.” Perhaps the most entertaining characters in “Igniting the Flame” are brothers Sumner and John Paine, a couple of rich kids living in Paris who were recruited because they were expert marksmen. They dominated the shooting competition while reaching into their pockets between shots to sip whiskey from a flask. (If the Paine brothers were competing today, they’d probably have an endorsement deal with Jim Beam.) Today’s emphasis on selling brands at the Games is a far cry from what International Olympic Committee founder Baron de Coubertin envisioned when he revived the concept of the Games at the end of the 19th century. In fact, what can you say about an event so big that NBC is willing to lose $100 million for the right to own it on all platforms? Yeah, a lot can change in 100 years.

Marilyn Monroe was Hollywood’s archetypal dumb blonde. She was also one smart cookie. That’s the twist in Lois Banner’s richly researched biography “Marilyn: the Passion and the Paradox.” The passion part is that Monroe worked tirelessly toward her goal: to become a movie star. Her name was Norma Jeane, but even her surname is the subject of debate. Her mother, Gladys Baker, was an independent woman from a Missouri family who moved to Los Angeles during the boom years of silent cinema and worked as a film editor. Her daughter, born in 1926, was given the last name Mortenson, after Gladys’ estranged husband. Her real father was probably a polo player named Stan Gifford whom the girl spent a lifetime trying to find, literally as well as figuratively. In the oft-repeated legend, Gladys went mad — which is true — and Norma Jeane was bounced between Dickensian orphan-

ages — which is not. Most of her childhood was spent with foster parents who were acquainted with her mother, and the orphanage where she briefly lived in Monroe in 1962 the shadow of RKO Studios was well-funded. But young Norma Jeane did suffer, most notably at the hands of some sexual abusers, and Banner’s book takes a psycho-sexual approach to analyzing the legend’s life. At 16, she was introduced to a sailor named Jim Dougherty and soon they were married. But while Jim was serving in the merchant marines during World War II, a photographer spotted Norma Jeane at the munitions factory where she worked. The busty brunette became a fresh-faced model for pre-Playboy men’s magazines, and she educated herself about fashion and photography.

Banner ably documents the passion for fame that led to Norma Jeane’s divorce and her first contract with 20th Century Fox, which changed her name to Marilyn Monroe. (“Marilyn” was an invention, but “Monroe” was her mother’s maiden name.) The most titillating sections of this refreshingly frank book describe Monroe’s years as a party girl. Banner builds a case that she shamelessly serviced agents, journalists, producers and studio executives to achieve her ultimate goal of stardom. Monroe, raised a Christian Scientist and surrounded by seekers, didn’t care much about money, which she gave to friends or spent on classes in literature, singing and acting. Banner believes that Monroe had a lesbian relationship with acting teacher Natasha Lytess, who was a fixture on the set of such movies as “Asphalt Jungle,” “All About Eve” and “Niagara.” But Monroe gravitated toward father figures, and in 1954 she married homebody baseball star Joe DiMaggio — at the very moment when she was becoming a

worldwide sex symbol. DiMaggio was appalled by her performances for American troops in Korea — who hoarded the nude calendar photos she’d shot a few years earlier — and soon after her skirt-billowing scene in “The Seven Year Itch,” the couple divorced. Yet they remained close, and DiMaggio was a protective presence in her life while she was married to coldly intellectual Arthur Miller and cavorting with various Kennedys. Monroe was adept at juggling a diverse set of friends and lovers, but like many of her recent biographers, Banner believes that the star’s sexual relationships with both John and Robert Kennedy led to her death. It’s indisputable that Monroe was romantically involved with John as early as 1954, when the handsome young Massachusetts senator was sampling his mogul father’s West Coast holdings. But Banner also documents that after JFK was elected president and became worried about bad publicity, he handed the Hollywood star to little brother Bobby.

Apart from the Bible, what’s your favorite faith-related book? ‘The Return of the Prodigal Son’ Monsignor Vincent Krische, senior associate, Corpus Christi Catholic Church, 6001 Bob Billings Parkway: “The Return of the Prodigal Son” is one of my favorite spiritual books. I have read it a number of times, and each reading helps me understand the journey “back home” in a clearer light. I have recommended the book to many, preached on the book a number of times, and have received grateful thanks from those who have read it. I start with the author, a Catholic priest from the Netherlands. Henri J.M. Nouwen studied as a Fellow at the Menninger Foundation in Topeka in the mid ’60s. He then taught at Notre Dame University, the Yale Divinity School and the Harvard Divinity School. After 20 years in academia, he felt the call of God to work with severely mentally and physically challenged youth in a L’Arche Community. The thrust of the book is the parable of the Prodigal Son from the Gospel of Luke (15:11-32). His inspiration is the painting “The Prodigal Son” by the famous artist Rembrandt. He visited this painting in the Hermitage in St. Petersburg, Russia, and was allowed by the museum curators to spend hours each day before the painting, meditating on each aspect of the awesome work. He assumes the heart of the artist as he reflects on the “heart” of the painting. Nouwen calls the parable “a story of two brothers and their father,” with the brothers representing all of humanity. The book is written in such a way that the reader is able to identify him or herself with each one. I find it hard to even read a page

without needing to stop and reflect on my own life. We are familiar with the Krische prodigal who wants everything right now but is unable to handle our inheritance in a responsible way. We may be less familiar with the Older Son. He is very proud, selfrighteous, angry and unwilling to forgive, and these qualities we can also find in ourselves. In the background, there are four figures: two men and two women who appear to be observers of the event of the welcome of the father and the confession of the prodigal. They look indifferent, bored and uninterested in this great event of reconciliation. These attributes can creep into our own lives as we choose to remain uninvolved in serious situations that need our attention. The father, with his red cloak wrapped around the son, shows the unwavering commitment of true love. He is partially blind, blind to the sins of the son, but granting forgiveness because he sees the sincere sorrow of his son. I hardly do justice to this, what I would call a spiritual classic, in these few words. I would encourage anyone interested in the spiritual turmoil that may be experienced in life to gain a better understanding of traveling the road back “home” to our Father in the reading of this beautiful book. The Father who awaits us with compassion and mercy and a warm, loving embrace. — Send email to Vincent Krische at vkrische@petrusdevelopment. com.

‘A Short Guide to a Happy Life’ The Rev. Jay B. Henderson, pastor, Central United Methodist Church, 1501 Mass.: My favorite book is not classified as a religious book, but it contains much theological and spiritual wisdom. I keep it close to me, refer to it often, and use it frequently as a sermon resource. The book, “A Short Guide to a Happy Life,” is actually a commencement speech given by writer and novelist Anna Quindlen a few years ago. Amid the hundreds of books I have read over the years, this small book’s message is one of the most simple and yet profound messages I have experienced. Anna uses the setting of a graduation to remind graduates who are embarking on their new journey, that life is truly wonderful and meant to be lived to the fullest. In a clear, direct manner, Anna gives what is her best piece of advice: “Get a life. A real life, not a manic pursuit of the next promotion, the bigger paycheck, the larger house. Get a life in which you are not alone. Find people you love, and who love you. Get a life in which you are generous. It is so easy to waste our lives, our days, our hours, our minutes.” The death of Anna’s mother when Anna was only 19 years old had a profound effect on her.

Her words throughout the book reflect the effect: “I learned to live many years ago. Something Henderson really bad happened to me, something that changed my life in ways that, if I had a choice, it would never have been changed at all. And what I learned from it is what, today, sometimes seems to be the hardest lesson of all. I learned to love the journey, not the destination. I learned that this is not a dress rehearsal, and that today is the only guarantee you get.” Anna closes the speech (book) describing one of her best teachers, a homeless man on the boardwalk at Coney Island. He reminds Anna and us that when we engage in each day, appreciating the gifts each day brings, we will never be disappointed. When I get caught up in my sometimes manic pursuit of what I can achieve, earn and win in life, the wisdom from this short guide to a happy life reminds me to appreciate what I have already received in life: the gifts God has provided this day and every day. When I do that, I am never disappointed. — Send email to Jay B. Henderson at cumcpastor@sunflower. com.

Never too late to set a world record I

want a WR. You know what I’m talking about, right? I want a world record next to my name for all of eternity. Seems I’ve become so jaded watching the profuseness of excellence on the Olympics (except for Ryan Seacrest and those “Today” show ninnies who get more ridiculous and fawning by the minute) that unless someone wins the gold AND sets a WR, I’m all like, “Meh.” Let’s face it: American records and Olympic records are cool, but the WORLD record is where it’s at, sports fans. Until the Martian contingent descends from the sky instead of Mary Poppinses, and joins the march of athletes, you can’t do better than a WR. But what can I do to earn my WR? I’m too old for Olympic sport. Except, perhaps, equestrian events. Did you know that the oldest woman to compete in the Olympics was equestrian Lorna Johnstone, who may actually be related to me since my maiden name is Johnstone minus the ‘e’? Lorna, a Brit, was 70 years and 5 days old when she participated in Mixed Dressage at the 1972 Olympics. She may not have won a

ahead and rule out any sport that involves bikinis, leotards or Spandex in any shape or form. That, of course, leaves fencing. At first glace, there’s much to love about fencing. The outfits are amply concealing, although that little straight jacket with the strap under the crotch might prove problematic when dashing to the loo. (Maybe that’s what the sabre is for, huh?) On the other hand, I’d have gloves to hide my agespotted hands and a mask that makes makeup moot. Bonus! And, as far as I can tell from TV, the sport itself is easy breezy. You simply strike a pose, wiggle your foil and try not to get poked. For me, that’s a Friday night. This year, the oldest female fencer on Team USA, at 32, is Maya Lawrence.

Chill-out artist: Washed Out’s music reflects laid-back lifestyle By Alex Garrison acgarrison@ljworld.com

People say it frequently. It seems a little too easy — a cutesy quip made by music journalists to play on the zeitgeisty alt subgenre he became a poster boy for, after his songs were picked up from Myspace and he was catapulted to doing shows reviewed by the New York Times. But then you talk to him for a bit. And you realize that, actually, Ernest Greene seems really chill. As Washed Out, Greene went from unemployed librarian to nationally known musician in the span of a few months as the Internet sensation of an Internet ilk — the chillwave buzz that took over the iPods of “hipsters” around 2009. Greene, 29, signed with Sub Pop Records and released his (so far) only full-length album, “Within and Without,” in 2011 and hit the tour scene. He’s grown quite a bit since playing his firstever live show in front of about 1,000 people in New York and is recording again — but this time not in his parents’ basement. Greene talked to Lawrence.com ahead of his Aug. 6 show at the Granada with his trademark laissez-faire approach and a fair share of “chill” Southern drawl. He’s looking forward to Kansas, he says, because there aren’t many states left that he hasn’t played. He’s from Perry, Ga., (“a refreshing oasis for travelers,” according to its website) and got a master’s degree in library science from the University of North Carolina. Librarian jobs were probably even sparser than they are three years since, and Greene made the trek back home, where the dreamy, nostalgic, unintelligible-butsomehow-warm bedroom stylings of Washed Out was born. Near-constant touring since has been tough, he says, because “the hardest thing about touring is that there’s very little time to think about and write new music.” And touring

ERNEST GREENE, A “CHILLWAVE” MUSICIAN WHO PERFORMS under the moniker Washed Out, will be playing Monday at the Granada.

WASHED OUT When: 9 p.m. Monday Where: The Granada, 1020 Mass. Cost: $14, all ages an oeuvre of fuzzy, lo-fi electronica has challenges in itself. “The music can be very subtle and laid-back, and sometimes that’s not the best approach,” he says. “So that’s part of the biggest progression for Washed Out — the live show has taken on such a big part of the tour.” His wife, Blair, joined him on stage, following his example of baptism by fire in her first live show in front of about 5,000 people. “She’s been thrown in with the wolves really quickly,” Greene says, deadpan. It’s not the best way to learn, he says, but it’s a way. About that meteoric rise. Greene is acutely selfaware of his love-hate relationship with all things interwebs. On one hand, he’s not a social-media user, preferring to keep necessary communications to reps and managers. “I’m a pretty introverted person,” he says. “But it’s also partly a conscious

effort to not put too much out there — I love the idea of a little mystery behind the band, but that’s not really being done these days with press cycles and 24/7 updates of what’s happening.” But without the churning cycles, the discovery of Washed Out via Myspace — and the ensuing blog-fueled lovefest — wouldn’t have happened for him or for his chillwave brethren. “I’ve been making this kind of electronic, hiphop-influenced style of music for years and years and it just happened to become kind of in vogue at the time I started to put it out as Washed Out,” he says. “In the past five years or so, recording technology has gotten good enough and widely available enough to allow people like me, who don’t have a lot access, to make pretty-well-recorded records — I think that has a lot to do with it. And the social media stuff was really taking off (in 2009) and it started shaping the

way people were distributing and finding new music. I guess I was in the right place at the right time.” So he lives in the precipice between loving (and owing) the wired world and wanting not to be constantly plugged in. He’s aware, too, of his label as a hipster icon, but he straddles that, too. “Sitting down, writing songs, I’m not thinking about for whom or where it’s going to make sense being played; it’s just the way I’ve always written songs — a combination of so many genres — some very non-hipster genres.” Should things not work out for his music career, there is always librarianship. “I certainly wouldn’t be crushed,” he says of the fallback, should he “not get away with” doing more music. “It’s really laid-back, so that works for me.” — Reporter Alex Garrison can be reached at 832-7261.

MADE IN THE SHADE

I

f you have mature trees or structures that shade portions of your yard, landscaping might seem extra challenging. The plants with the showiest flowers, brightest colors, and most bountiful fruit always seem to prefer basking in the sun, with perhaps the only exception in drought years like we are currently experiencing.

Garden Calendar

Jennifer Smith smithjen@ksu.edu

You can have a beautiful garden in the shade too, though, and the Douglas County Extension Master Gardeners maintain a demonstration garden at the Douglas County 4-H Fairgrounds that proves it. The shade garden is part of a collection of gardens that demonstrate sound gardening practices and exhibit plants that grow well in this area. Although a shade garden has been a long-standing component of the Fairgrounds Demonstration Gardens, local Master Gardener volunteers spent last fall and spring moving the garden to an area that is more convenient for visitors. The new shade garden is located just north of the KState Research and Extension office on the fairgrounds, 2110 Harper St., and is accessible from a sidewalk that connects the parking lot to the courtyard at the Dreher Family 4-H Building. As you stroll through the various gardens, you will recognize the shade garden by the mature linden, ash and catalpa trees that were likely planted with the construction of the extension office in the 1970s. You will also notice the natural features that complement the plantings.

“A SHADE GARDEN should always have places to sit,” says Master Gardener Michele Passman. “We used logs, tree stumps, and rocks from this area to create a very natural hardscape,” explains Master Gardener Michele Passman. Passman co-chairs the group of Master Gardener volunteers that work to maintain and improve the gardens. “We were trying to create a woodsy look.” The logs and stumps were donated by a local arborist, and some handy Master Gardener volunteers used a few of the logs to create a rustic arbor. The stumps make seats so visitors can rest while they enjoy the garden. “A shade garden should always have places to sit,” Passman says. There is also a bench that was moved from the former shade garden. A variety of ferns, hydrangeas, hostas, azaleas and heucheras fill much of the garden right now. All of the plants are labeled to help you iden-

tify things you might like, and more plants will be added when the weather is more conducive to planting. Passman points out that the garden is a work in progress. “As soon as we saw what the weather was going to be like, we stopped planting,” she says. “This fall we will put in more shrubs and fill this area with a bunch of bulbs, as long as the weather turns.” I make note of some of the smaller perennials, including brunnera, Barrenwort, wild ginger, hellebores and leadwort as things I might add to my own shade garden. I also admire the Japanese maple that seems quite happy with the protection of the larger trees. Passman says the garden, which was just a grassy area a year ago, was converted into a landscape area quickly with the work of the volunteers who maintain the gardens.

They first added soil in a few specific areas to create berms and add visual interest but without adding soil over the majority of the existing trees’ roots, which could cause stress for the trees. They also added compost to the area that was made on site in a three-bin system near the new shade garden. The entire area was covered with newspapers and then a twoto three-inch layer of mulch. The newspapers work like a weed mat except they decompose and improve the soil over time. The soil and mulch was allowed to settle over the winter, and volunteers began moving plants from the old shade garden early this spring. “The garden was hard to maintain and hard to water in the old location,” Passman adds. “It wasn’t connected.

Once the sidewalk was in place, it was the obvious next step to create something here.” The Fairgrounds Demonstration Gardens are open to the public year-round. If you visit on a Tuesday morning, however, you just might catch some Master Gardeners working who can tell you more about the gardens and good gardening practices. You can also join the Master Gardeners by signing up for their fall training class. More information about the program is available at douglascountymastergardeners. org or by calling 843-7058. Weekly classes begin Aug. 21. — Jennifer Smith is the Horticulture Extension Agent for K-State Research and Extension in Douglas County.

Vintage bronze bells often cheaper than new ones windmills that have the same problem. A: Your tumblers are part of the Sportsman Series, made by the Hazel Atlas Glass Co. in the 1940s. Designs featured sailboats, golf, hunting, angelfish and windmills. The pattern was made in amethyst, cobalt blue and clear glass, with fired-on decorations. The sailboats and windmills are being removed by the very hot water and detergents used in a dishwasher. Wash the tumblers by hand.

By Terry Kovel

Often when restoring a historic church or school, a large bronze bell is needed for the bell tower. The bells are difficult to find because many have been sold as scrap and melted, and others are too heavy to be moved for a reasonable price. But a vintage bell often is less expensive than a new one. A bronze bell that sold a few years ago had the name “Vanduzen and Tift” molded into the metal. It identifies a Cincinnati maker, a partnership founded in 1837. The partners made top-quality bells during the 19th century. The bell that sold also was molded with a date, which was worn but appeared to be 1864. A fourdigit number on a castbronze bell indicates the year of the casting. The mold for a cast bell can be used only once. The mold is broken to get the bell out after it cools. If a small bell is marked with a date, it probably is a design patent, because the mold can be reused. Vintage bells of all sizes often need to be cleaned or restored. A cast-bronze bell should not be painted. Once it’s cleaned, it should be left to develop its natural patina.

THIS 13-INCH-HIGH BRONZE BELL sold for $823 at a Garth’s auction in Delaware, Ohio. Its presale estimate was $1,500 to $3,000. The name “Vanduzen and Tift” and the date “1864” are cast into the bell.

I have a Windsor chair that my parents bought in the early 1930s. It is 44 inches high and has a fan back with nine straight spindles and two brace spindles. The chair is black with gilt striping.

Grandma’s oral hygiene a legitimate concern Dear Annie: I have a beautiful 3-month-old daughter. We live close to my parents, and they baby-sit “Abby” all the time. Here’s the problem. At my last dental visit, my dentist told me about a study that says adults with bad oral hygiene can transmit bacteria to children through kissing and sharing utensils, causing tooth infections in the kids. My mom hasn’t been to a dentist in years. When I told her about the study and suggested she get a checkup, she blew up at me and now refuses to see her granddaughter. I realize my mother has a phobia, but I thought she’d make the effort for Abby’s sake. How can I make her understand that this is not an attack on her, but about the well-being of my daughter? — Clean Teeth in Pennsylvania Dear Penn: Tooth decay is caused by spe-

cific germs and is more common among young children than any other chronic illness. Some of this is caused by poor brushing and flossing, too much sugar in the diet, and relying exclusively on bottled water, which usually doesn’t have fluoride. But it also happens when saliva is transferred to the baby’s mouth by eating from the same spoon, sharing cups and utensils, letting your toddler put your toothbrush in his mouth, or kissing the baby on the mouth if you have

Don’t bite on ‘Off the Hook’ As the Olympics remind us, we love athletes because they do things most of us can’t, with stamina and grace we find astounding. While we don’t love professional wrestlers for the same reasons, it’s safe to say that few fans watch wrestling for anything but the action. It’s not about wit. That’s what makes the casting of “Off the Hook: Extreme Catches” (8 p.m. Sunday, Animal Planet) so unbearable. Wrestler “Showtime” Eric Young hosts this program, which showcases some of America’s most daring fishing techniques and features seriously questionable stunts. In the debut episode, Young fishes for shark with a simple rod and reel while standing on a paddleboard. But he first has to lure the deadly creatures with bloody chum encased in women’s pantyhose. The whole enterprise has a slow and obvious “look at me” quality to it that makes one pine for the quicker pace and throwaway quality of MTV’s “Jackass.” ‘‘Off the Hook” is a 30-minute show that runs for an hour. Most of Young’s observations aren’t particularly spellbinding the first time you hear them. And this being a basic cable show, you hear them over and over again. On the 50th anniversary of Marilyn Monroe’s death, “American Masters” (7 p.m. Sunday, PBS, check local listings) repeats the 2006 documentary “Marilyn Monroe: Still Life.” TCM will dedicate Saturday to Monroe with a 12-film salute that includes “The Prince and the Showgirl” (1 p.m.). The making of that 1957 film was the backdrop of the 2011 drama “My Week With Marilyn,” which earned Michelle Williams and Kenneth Branagh Oscar nominations for their portrayals of Monroe and Laurence Olivier.

Sunday’s other highlights Tonight’s scheduled events at the XXX Summer Olympics (7 p.m., NBC) include the men’s 100-meter dash, gymnastics, diving and more beach volleyball. The New Orleans Saints and Arizona Cardinals meet in the NFL Hall of Fame Game (7 p.m., NFL Network), the official start to preseason play. The 2nd Mass regiment has Charleston in its sights on “Falling Skies” (8 p.m., TNT). Walt blows out the candles on “Breaking Bad” (9 p.m., AMC). Elaine returns from exile to discover a diplomatic crisis on her doorstep on “Political Animals” (9 p.m., USA). Matt has the worst time rounding up his old “Friends” on “Episodes” (9:30 p.m., Showtime).

poor dental hygiene. Only those with active tooth decay can spread this bacteria. So when you blow on a bite of food, touch it to your mouth and then feed it to your baby, you may be transferring bacteria. Your mother’s phobia is so severe that she has chosen not to see her grandchild rather than submit to a dentist. This not only damages her relationship with Abby, but risks her physical health, as poor dental hygiene can lead to heart disease. Please explain this to your mother. Then wipe the baby’s teeth, tongue and inner cheeks with a clean, wet cloth every few hours, whether she’s around Mom or not. Dear Annie: I have an etiquette question about holding doors open. How long or at what distance is it appropriate to shut a non-automatic door when someone is obviously going to be

JACQUELINE BIGAR’S STARS

For Sunday, Aug. 5: This year you frequently look at the big picture, and you’ll make better decisions. Curb a tendency to overdo things or to overindulge yourself. If you are single, you will want to meet Mr. or Ms. Right Now. If you are attached, sometimes you are too caught up in your own feelings, and you lose your self-discipline. The Stars Show the Kind of Day You’ll Have: 5-Dynamic; 4-Positive; 3-Average; 2-So-so; 1-Difficult Aries (March 21-April 19) Handle a personal matter in the morning. This issue could involve a parent or elder. Tonight: All smiles. Taurus (April 20-May 20) You know what you want and clearly have a chosen direction. Accomplish key matters in the morning. Tonight: Not to be found. Gemini (May 21-June 20) Your presence could be far more pivotal than you realize. You draw friends and admirers into your camp. Tonight: Act as if there is no tomorrow. Cancer (June 21-July 22) Touch base with someone at a distance. Exchanging news will make you feel as if you are in the same town. Tonight: A force to be dealt with. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) Your sweetie makes it clear that he or she wants more of your time. You could enjoy a very leisurely day together if you do not answer the phone. Tonight: Choose the unusual. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) You might be exchanging so many hellos and well wishes wherever you are that you’ll want a nap afterward. Indeed, spending

walking in after you? I have waited for people who ended up looking at me weirdly, and I’ve accidentally shut the door on people who were walking faster than I expected. I also have had doors close on me by people who won’t wait regardless of how close I am. I find it rude not to wait the few seconds to keep the door open, but how much time is too long? — Stuck in the Doorway Dear Stuck: This is a very subjective question, and there is no exact answer. We’d say hold the door if the person walking behind you would arrive within 10 seconds. If the person has a large number of packages, a bunch of young kids or is disabled, wait longer. Please err on the side of kindness. A few “weird” looks are better than accidentally slamming the door in someone’s face.

jacquelinebigar.com

some quiet time with a loved one in the afternoon will re-energize you. Tonight: Dinner for two. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) You could be surprised by how much a lazy morning could mean. Sometimes not being accountable is important for you and for others. Tonight: Love the one you are with. Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) Enjoy a childlike person in your life; he or she absolutely adores you. When you start interacting with this person, you’ll feel like a kid, too. Tonight: Start thinking about tomorrow. Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) Getting going might be a slow process, if for no other reason than it’s just habit. Break past barriers and do what you want in the daylight hours. Tonight: Be naughty and nice. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Making morning calls and visiting with a key person could keep you busy into the middle part of the day. Invite family over for an early dinner. Tonight: Relax. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) Be aware of how much you give to people, and not necessarily in the form of money or material assets. Plan a late brunch with a dear friend whom you never have enough time to visit. Tonight: Return emails. Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) Use the daylight hours to the max, when others appear to be more responsive to your energy. Understanding evolves during an important talk with a loved one. Tonight: Talk with a loved one over dessert. — The astrological forecast should be read for entertainment only.
