Romney’s Ryan pick sets clear November choice Size of government becomes central issue By Donna Cassata Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Mitt Romney’s pick of Rep. Paul Ryan for the Republican presidential ticket brings clarity to the stark election-year choice for voters — the competing

Democratic and GOP visions about the size and role of the federal government in Americans’ lives. Ryan is synonymous with his revolutionary budget that slashes spending for safety-net programs for the poor, remakes Medicare and cuts

personal and corporate taxes while pushing the deficit down to a manageable level. It turns the tea party dream of a scaledback, less involved government into hard-core reality. “America is more than just a place ... it’s an idea.

and woe: Tales from a drought

City’s first Elvis parade, sing-off draws a crowd

By David Mercer Associated Press

CHAMPAIGN, ILL. — The United States is in the midst of the worst drought in decades, and the dry weather and soaring temperatures are taking a toll on people living and working in Ohio west to California and Texas north to the Dakotas. Farmers have watched their corn wither and their cattle go hungry. Homeowners have seen their lawns turn brown and gardens wilt. Communities in the Midwest that rarely experience water shortages have enacted restrictions, and businesses are looking for ways to stay afloat as sales fall off. Here are a few of their stories:

Water for quarters The creeks and ponds that Cimeron Frost’s 300 cows and calves drink from in central Illinois are almost dry. So each day, he takes rolls of quarters to what amounts to water vending machines in nearby towns. He drops in the coins, collects the water in metal and plastic tanks and tows it on trailers to his pastures around the

town of Tallula. He hauls 4,000 gallons a day in four separate trips, dumping or piping the water into big, galvanized-steel troughs for his herd to drink. Even at 40 to 50 gallons per quarter, it adds up. “It takes a little over two rolls of quarters a day, plus probably $40 in gasoline a day, to water all our cows in all our locations,” Frost, 65, said. At $10 a roll, that’s about 60 bucks a day, or $420 a week, and he’s been hauling every day since mid-June. He estimates he has spent about $2,700 so far. But he worries more about what could lie ahead. “If we don’t have a wet fall and a wet spring, we could be in trouble for another year,” Frost said.

When Sam Brownback was a freshman in the U.S. House, his legislative director was a 25-year-old from Wisconsin who already had several years under his belt as a congressional staffer and speech writer for Republicans in Washington, D.C. On Saturday, that former Brownback staffer, U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan, was picked by presumed Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney to run as vice president, challenging President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden. Brownback released a quick statement, praising the selection of Ryan. “For three years, Paul worked tirelessly on behalf of the people of Kansas; apart from his native Wisconsin, no state has benefited more from his talents,” Brownback Brownback said. “Paul has the vision, experience and character to help bring America back.” Ryan, 42, served as legislative director on Brownback’s staff in Congress from 1995-1997 when Brownback was a House member and then successfully ran for the U.S. Senate. In 1998, Ryan ran for Congress and won. Ryan, in his seventh term in Congress and chairman of the House Budget Committee, has proposed trillions of dollars in cuts to federal spending in pro-


community organizer sees government as a place with enough resources to help the less fortunate. The Ryan budget, Obama said in April, “is antithetical to our entire history as a land of opportunity and upward mobility for everybody who’s willing to work for it; a place where prosperity doesn’t trickle down from the top but grows outward from the heart of the middle class.” Roughly three months before the election, Romney’s choice clearly defines the fault lines and establishes the narrative for the election, one that Republicans and Democrats, liberals and tea partyers will echo in congressional and gubernatorial races. The outcome in November will have far-reaching implications for looming fiscal crises in the year’s final days. On the grass-roots level, the selection of the 42-year-old Ryan, one of the House’s intellectual conservatives and Budget Committee chairman, energizes a GOP base wary of the Massachusetts governor and architect of the state’s health insurance program dubbed Romneycare. Conservatives, from The Wall Street Journal editorial page to the rank and file, had been clamoring in recent days for Ryan. The timing of the announcement came as polls showed Obama with a narrow advantage and the number of undecided voters diminishing, underscoring the need for Romney to act fast. “It’s absolutely fantastic,” Sal Russo, a longtime Republican operative and founder of the Tea Party Express, a well-funded wing of the populist movement, said in an interview. “He’s willing to go out there and tackle tough issues. The American people want somebody to make the tough choices.” Russo said his organization had polled its 17,000

REPUBLICAN PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE Mitt Romney, right, introduces his vice presidential running mate, Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan, Saturday in Norfolk, Va. grams such as Medicaid, food stamps and student loans. He has proposed overhauling Medicare in a way that future seniors would receive government checks to purchase health insurance instead of the current system where the government directly pays health care providers. While Brownback praised Ryan, the governor has in the past crossed swords with Romney. In 2007, Brownback ran for the GOP nomination for president and said Romney had supported proabortion policies. U.S. Sen. John McCain of Arizona won the GOP nomination and then lost to President Barack Obama. During the Republican Party presidential campaign this year, Brownback endorsed Texas Gov. Rick Perry, whose candidacy failed. A spokeswoman for Brownback said the governor has endorsed Romney for president. Kansas Democratic Party Chairwoman Joan Wagnon criticized the choice of Ryan, saying his

members, and Ryan and freshman Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida were the favorites for the No. 2 spot on the GOP ticket.

Democrats pounce The conservative reward of Ryan also carries a significant political risk — and Democrats wasted no time in making it a top talking point. The Ryan budget would scrap the current Medicare system that the nation’s seniors have enjoyed for decades in favor of a voucher program for those under 55 today. Starting in 10 years, the plan also calls for gradually raising the Medicare retirement age from 65 to 67. Democrats immediately sounded the alarm about the implications of changing the popular entitlement program, a warning certain to resonate in battleground states such as Florida, Iowa and Pennsylvania — states with the heaviest concentration of those 65 and over. “In selecting Paul Ryan, Mitt Romney has crystalized the contrast of this election,” said Rod Smith, chairman of the Florida Democratic Party. “Ryan is the architect of Romney’s extreme budget plan, which would end Medicare as we know it, increasing the healthcare costs for Florida’s seniors by thousands every year.” The state’s Democratic Sen. Bill Nelson, who faces a stiff challenge in his bid for another term, quickly posted on Facebook. “Romney VP pick bad for seniors. Signals an end to Medicare as we know it. My commitment to Medicare never stronger,” Nelson said. Democrats are certain to replay past Republican criticism of the Ryan budget. Newt Gingrich, the former House speaker and one-time Republican presidential candidate, referred to Ryan’s plan to overhaul Medicare as “right-wing social engineering.” He later apologized. Florida Rep. Connie

and Brownback’s vision of cutting taxes for wealthy corporations will hurt the middle class. Brownback recently signed into law tax cuts that will reduce state income tax rates and eliminate income taxes on nonwage income for about 191,000 business owners. Brownback has said the cuts will stimulate the economy, but Democrats and some Republicans have said the cuts will eliminate revenue for schools, social services and public safety. “Everyone in Kansas needs to pay their fair share, including, and especially, wealthy corporations,” Wagnon said. “We need to set better priorities and be financially responsible. Sam Brownback and Paul Ryan’s attempts to eliminate/lower their taxes is the wrong priority, and it makes it harder on our working families,” she said. — Statehouse reporter Scott Rothschild can be reached at 785-423-0668.

Mack, who hopes to win the Republican Senate nomination Tuesday, said in April of the Ryan budget: “You know that budget was a joke, doesn’t balance the budget for years.” An aide later clarified that Mack was referring to the voting process in which Republican-passed legislation in the House goes nowhere in the Democratic-controlled Senate. Mack’s deficit-cutting plan calls for cutting one penny from every federal dollar spent. Republicans see Ryan, a Catholic from Wisconsin who could appeal to blue-collar voters, as an appealing complement to Romney, a Mormon and multimillionaire. But Ryan has tangled with the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops and others in the church over his budget, which would cut Medicaid, food stamps, Pell Grants and a host of other programs that directly help the nation’s poor. Ryan had said the budget is based on Catholic social teaching. But in a letter, the Rev. Thomas J. Reese called that nonsense. “I am afraid that Chairman Ryan’s budget reflects the values of his favorite philosopher Ayn Rand rather than the gospel of Jesus Christ,” said Reese, a Jesuit priest and senior fellow at the Woodstock Theological Center at Georgetown University. “Survival of the fittest may be OK for social Darwinists but not for followers of the gospel of compassion and love.” Romney insisted on Saturday that Ryan is intent on creating opportunities for all Americans.

Group sees families through home stretch Tenants to Homeowners provides affordable way to build assets By Margie Carr

In 2000, when Paul Wood moved back to Lawrence with his son, Jason, they were strapped for cash. The elder Wood had left his job with California public schools to care for his son, who had been critically injured in a cycling accident. “He was in a coma for a long time,” Paul said. “It was a head injury, and he lost a lot of cognitive ability and physical mobility. ... Jason wanted to come back to Lawrence because this is the place he knew.” When it came to housing, Paul said, they took what they could get: a one-bedroom basement apartment on Mississippi Street costing more than $400 a month. “It was tiny,” Paul said. “I slept in the living room, and Jason didn’t have room for his art. “His art is his way to recover.” Father and son remained in the cramped basement apartment for five years. “We had a plan to move into a home, but it was hard to get money for a loan,” said Paul, who found a job as a paraprofessional in the Lawrence school district. That was when Paul contacted Tenants to Homeowners, a community not-for-profit that helps low-income families find affordable housing.

PAUL WOOD, LEFT, AND HIS SON, JASON, pictured at their home at 1108 Conn., moved from California to Lawrence in 2000 after Jason was critically injured in a cycling accident. In 2005, they moved into their current residence with the help of Tenants to Homeowners, an organization that helps low-income families find affordable housing. “We didn’t get a home overnight,” he said. “We had to get our credit in order.” This year, Tenants to Homeowners is celebrating its 20th anniversary, during which time it has helped more than 365 families locate affordable residences. “The group started as a grass-roots organization,” said early volunteer, Teresa Pippert. “We met in east Lawrence every Monday night for a year in the early ’90s to get the organization up and running. We were all volunteers and had representatives from neighborhoods, professionals and builders.” Please see HOME, page 4A

Proposed rental development in dispute By Alex Garrison

Some residents of a Lawrence neighborhood are petitioning to keep a vacant lot in the area unfilled. They lost a battle in their fight Wednesday, but they — as well as the supporters of a development project there — are determined to win the war. The disputed lot is adjacent to the United Way building, 2518 Ridge Court, and the proposed development would likely face Cedarwood Avenue. Douglas County owns the lot and, in its Wednesday evening County Commission meeting, agreed to give it to Tenants to Homeowners on the condition that it build housing for middle-income seniors there. Jean Affalter led the home- and

land-owner opposition to the plan at the meeting, where she gave commissioners a petition with 57 signatures — many from multiple members of the same household — asking them to kill the plan. Affalter and several others who spoke at the meeting said they didn’t want to see more rental property in the area. The traffic flow and especially the water and sewer systems just couldn’t handle any more residents, Affalter said. She’s also upset with what she said has been a lack of notification on the land transfer from the county to Tenants to Homeowners. Her petition also cites projected lower property values as a reason against development. “The neighbors are not happy,” Please see RENTAL, page 4A

Shootings and other firearm and weapons-related crimes in Lawrence have dropped significantly since 2006, according to data provided by the Lawrence Police Department. A Journal-World openrecords request revealed the following about firearm and weapons-related crimes in Lawrence: !" Confirmed shootings reached a fiveyear high in 2009, at 40, but dropped to 14 in 2010 and 11 in 2011. !" Crimes involving a firearm averaged 51 per year between 2006 and 2011, but dropped to 37 in 2011. !" Reports of disturbances with weapons dropped from 170 in 2006 to 106 in 2011. !"The number of guns seized by police dropped from 200 in 2006 to 71 in 2011. !"There have been no shooting deaths in Lawrence since 2008. Lawrence Police Chief Tarik Khatib said reducing gun violence remains a high priority within the department. Please see CRIMES, page 5A

she said in an interview. “We want a park there — more building will further push families with kids away.” Rebecca Buford, executive director of Tenants to Homeowners, is herself a resident of the neighborhood. She disagrees with Affalter’s opposition, saying that she understands it’s disappointing to see vacant land go but that the project is a much-needed one that will ultimately benefit the surrounding residents. “We’re a much better developer and neighbor than someone just out for a profit,” she said of Tenants to Homeowners. The organization does plan to develop rental properties — to the neighbors’ chagrin — but that’s because rental is what seniors want, Buford said, and they do plan on offering long-term accommodations, such as fiveyear lease agreements. The homes will also be one-story “cottages” with some communal space. This kind of housing for

Then another member thought of asking the county for its lot. “This kind of housing makes seniors’ lives easier,” she said.

She says her group is against rental properties, not seniors. “I’ve already got my name in the pot,” she said about the civic process. — Reporter Alex Garrison can be reached at 832-6314.

The group came to be known as HOOT, or Homeowners Out of Tenants, and its goals were to not only help low-income people achieve home ownership but also to revitalize neighborhoods. They targeted “low to moderate and blighted neighborhoods in Lawrence, North, East, Oread, Brook Creek and University Place to name a few,” Pippert said. “Our biggest project was the HOME development near 25th and Haskell. If I remember correctly, there were approximately 25 homes that were built and sold to low- and moderate-income families.”

For those who may not be ready for homeownership, TTH has also built up a supply of affordable rentals, recently renovating seven units at 1409 and 1411 Haskell Ave. They have come to be known as “Eastside Estates.” “A lot of families are treading water, paying $800 to $900 in rent, and they have no way to save for a home,” Buford said. “Our rentals can provide a stable place for them while they do that. We can help them transition into homeownership.” “No matter where you are on the political spectrum, the community gains from having affordable housing,” Buford said. “We allow people to build assets. Study after study shows that stability is good for families and communities. Kids who don’t move year to year have higher civic participation and voter registration. Graduation rates go up, and pregnancy rates go down.”

2-year-old killed when hit by truck PLAINS — A 2-year-old southwest Kansas boy was killed after he ran into a street and was hit by a truck Saturday. The Topeka CapitalJournal reports Konnor Wilkerson, of Plains, ran into the middle of the street in Plains, a town of about 1,200 residents in Meade County, just after 7 p.m. Saturday. Konnor was struck by a 2001 Ford pickup truck driven by 59-year-old John Lawrence of Florence, Colo. The Kansas Highway Patrol said Konnor was pronounced dead at the scene. No additional details of the crash were available.

“As much as possible, we concentrate on gun and gun violence crimes from an investigative standpoint,” he said. The local decrease in such crimes and reports follows a national trend of declining violent crime, said Michael Birzer, a Parole granted 31 criminal justice profesyears after conviction sor at Wichita State UniWICHITA — A Kansas versity. But why they’ve dropped is a complicated prison inmate who was convicted of killing a question. “There are a constel- Wichita man more than lation of factors,” Birzer said. “I don’t think you can lock down one single factor.” Some of the decrease could be attributable to the natural fluctuation of crime statistics and how police categorize certain crimes. But Birzer said efforts by law enforcement to make streets and communities safer, through proactive community policing, shouldn’t be discounted as one of the factors. “A big part of it is policing strategies,” Birzer said. K h a t i b Khatib echoed some of Birzer’s comments about natural ebbs and flows in crime statistics. But Khatib also said his department has worked closely with the U.S. Attorney’s Office on the prosecution of gun crimes that are federal offenses. Even with decreases in shooting crimes, it’s common for public perception to lag behind the statistics and for the public to believe violent crime and shootings are on the rise, Birzer said. That can be especially true with highprofile violent incidents, such as the July shooting at an Aurora, Colo., movie theater and the recent shooting at a Sikh temple in Wisconsin. “It brings the attention back to gun crimes,” he said.

Confirmed shootings in 2011 Lawrence police were able to provide statistics about shootings as far back as 2006 and detailed information about the 11 confirmed shootings in 2011. Those 11 cases run the gamut of seriousness and include everything from police finding shell casings after a report of gunshots to a suspect firing a gun into a crowd of people. No one was injured in any of the cases, according to police. Two of the more highprofile cases occurred at area bars. In June, an unidentified man fired a gun into a crowd of people gathered outside The Cave, 1200 Oread Ave., following a fight. In October, a 21-year-old Leavenworth man shot at employees of Taste Lounge, 804 W. 24th St. Two months later, a 28-year-old Lawrence man fired a weapon at a person near the same club, which has since had its license revoked by the Kansas Alcoholic Beverage Commission after a third shooting this year. — Reporter Shaun Hittle can be reached at 832-7173.

water. He connected the two, and they still aren’t producing enough to keep his corn and soybeans irrigated. He left about twofifths of his 1,700 acres unplanted this year, and he’s been pumping water onto the rest, spending $22,000 a month for fuel. “If I run out of water, they’ll be dead in two weeks,” he said.


before. Hot, dry, hot, dry, record-setting all the time,” Gatewood said. With business down 20 percent to 30 percent because of the weather, he quit ordering new plants in June and cut hours and staff. Then he decided to get creative. The nursery held a “heat stroke” sale in late July, offering customers a chance to buy plants and pick them up later, once cooler temperatures arrive and local watering bans are lifted. That brought people in and helped business some, he said. “We’re seeing a pent-up demand like a dam wanting to break. I think once we see cooler temperatures in the lower 80s, get a little rain shower — that’s going to help,” he said. The nursery has clustered plants in shaded areas to protect them. Gatewood said hydrangeas are especially vulnerable. “Even in the shade, when it’s 95 or 100, they hate it,” he said.

FARMER RANDY PETTINGHILL EXAMINES AN EAR OF UNDERSIZED CORN Aug. 1 in a field near Plumerville, Ark. Pettinghill buys water from the city of Morrilton for his farm in the Arkansas River Valley, but this year, the city put a cap on what he could have. It turns on the spigot every third night from 7 p.m. to 7 a.m.

Creative forecasting Facing three minutes to fill on the nightly newscast, a TV station blog to update and a forecast reading something like “sunny and 102” for the umpteenth day in a row, meteorologist Todd Yakoubian doesn’t sweat. He pulls out a meat thermometer. “I try to keep it as interesting as possible,” said Yakoubian, a meteorologist with KATV in Little Rock, Ark. “You can’t do the same thing day in and day out.” To illustrate just how hot it has been in Arkansas, and for how long, Yakoubian recently filled a sink in his home with water from the “cold” tap and measured it at a not-very-refreshing 84 degrees. He also has fried eggs on a sidewalk and baked cookies in a car but admits everybody does that. He’s on a quest to find other ways to show just how doggone hot the dog days are. “I put a wireless thermometer in the attic and hooked up a webcam and streamed it for “How Hot Is It In Todd’s Attic?” The answer: 138.6 degrees. He also took temperature readings in his wife’s car to show viewers how dangerous it was to leave children or animals in vehicles that can reach 130 degrees. “I used a meat thermometer because it was the only one I had that would go that high,” Yakoubian said.

The dead zone is an area of low oxygen in the waters that is a longstanding environmental problem, which experts say is caused by farm pollution running into the Mississippi River and then the Gulf of Mexico. But with less rain, there is less runoff. Nancy Rabalais, a dead zone expert with the Louisiana Universities Marine Consortium, found the dead zone was the fourth smallest in 80 years of records. It measured only 2,889 square miles in July, compared to a five-year average of 5,695 square miles. Tornado Alley also has been quiet this summer. In mid-April, the U.S. looked like it was on pace to set a record with the number of tornadoes this year. Then the storms stopped coming. In June, there were about 100 tornadoes, the second fewest in more than 60 years of recordkeeping. Then in July it got even slower, with a preliminary count of 24. Before this year, the fewest tornadoes the U.S. had in July was 73. The heat wave and drought are the primary reason for fewer twisters, said Harold Brooks, a research meteorologist at the National Severe Storm Laboratory in Norman, Okla. In a drought, there are fewer thunderstorms from which tornadoes can form. But there’s also less wind shear, which storms need to get rotation for tornadoes, said Jeff Masters, meteorology director at Weather Underground. But exchanging tornadoes for drought and extreme heat is not a good trade. Tornadoes typically kill one or two people each July, but the heat waves are killing dozens. “I think heat waves are the most dangerous weather phenomena out there,” Masters said.

A silver lining There may be a silver lining to the drought: The so-called “dead zone” in the Gulf of Mexico is shrinking, and the summer has seen fewer tornadoes.

Weeping willows are water-loving trees, said Tim Johnson, horticulture director for the botanic gardens: “When things dried down, they responded. The leaves yellowed up and some dropped.” Many of the gardens’ 2.5 million plants have required extra watering during the summer’s triple-digit heat, but the willows were a special case. Groundskeepers have been excessively watering the willows about once a week for about a month, drawing water from several lakes on the property to deluge the roots for about 30 minutes. One tree that was in particularly bad shape required 850 gallons of water, an amount that usually hydrates several miles on the 385-acre reserve, during one watering alone. Still, the foliage wilts. “The damage has been done,” Johnson said.

have. It turns on the spigot every third night from 7 p.m. to 7 a.m., and Pettinghill collects as much as he can in lagoons on his property in Arkansas’ Conway County. He tries to ration the water, but with the temperature regularly over 100 degrees, he’s losing a lot to evaporation. He has wells on his property too. He spent $25,000 to have the second one drilled in July because the first was producing half its normal amount of

Cashing in For some, the drought will likely be a moneymaker — especially those who fall outside the dryweather zone. One of those farmers is Harlan Anderson. The rainfall on his 800acre farm near Cokato in southern Minnesota has been normal, maybe a bit more. That means he’ll have alfalfa, corn and soybeans to sell when others don’t, and he’ll benefit from rising prices. But demonstrating what he described as his Scandinavian sense of reserve, Anderson said he feels a little guilty when talking about how he expects to profit from the misfortune of other farmers in the Upper Midwest. “My projection is that our gross profits for the year will double,” Anderson said. “The drought has certainly been good to me. Don’t say that too loud.” He’s started getting frequent calls in recent weeks from livestock farmers around the country. Some usually grow their own feed, while others buy it from farmers like Anderson. All are starting to worry about their supply. “Looking ahead, they’re trying to decide if there’s a sufficient supply of feed, can they afford it and are they going to keep feeding their dairy cow or their horse — or are they going to shoot them?” Anderson said. — Patrick Condon in Minneapolis

Many vintage hot rods were on display as Elvi took over the park. Danny Newman, of Eudora, came for the cars. He spent the morning peering at the display, hoping to get ideas on how to improve his own — he brought a 1927 Ford, called a Tall T, for the show. Roger Lee, of Lawrence, stumbled on the event by accident. He lives in the neighborhood and often checks out events at South Park. “I was just going to do a walk-through, but now I’m hooked,” Lee said. Gibson’s mother, Saasha, was also hooked. And it was clear why she and Gibson were there. “We’re here for Elvis,” she said.

Library move Moving the Lawrence Public Library to a temporary location during construction is the best option for the city.


ost estimates prepared for the Lawrence City Commission confirm that temporarily moving the Lawrence Public Library to the former Borders building at Seventh and New Hampshire makes sense both practically and financially. At their Tuesday meeting, city commissioners will be asked to approve a 20-month lease on the Borders property with an option to extend the lease for six months if unexpected complications arise. The cost of leasing the Borders building and moving the library operations there are almost entirely offset by the reduced construction costs. The library’s materials and operations would have to be moved probably eight times from one part of the current building to another to facilitate construction, and keeping the building open to the public would require temporary partitions and sidewalks. After evaluating all the cost estimates from architects and the construction manager for the library project, city staff has determined it will cost about $69,000 more to move the library to another site during construction, an amount that can be covered by money in the project’s contingency fund. In exchange, the city may cut as much as four months off the library construction period (from 18 to 14 months, according to the construction manager) while also providing better public parking and pedestrian access to the library’s collection and services. The construction period still is bound to cause considerable inconvenience for both library patrons and staff, but the move to an off-site location is the best option for the city.

Obama seeking a second chance George W. Bush was not an enigma. He had no hidden parts. His father was not mysterious. George H.W. Bush’s life was dedicated to achievement and service. Even Bill Clinton wasn’t unfathomable. Nothing in his presidency — the brilliant highs, the shocking lows — was a substantial, unpredictable departure from his past. Barack Obama, though, is the most enigmatic president since Jimmy Carter, the most mysterious since Lyndon Johnson, the most unfathomable since Franklin Roosevelt. Political professionals sometimes say of public figures that what you see is what you get, more or less. But with Obama, what you see is both more and less than what you get. All this is on display as Obama runs for president in the same economic crisis that helped catapult him to the White House in the first place. His first term was disappointing; even he implicitly acknowledges that. He is looking to renew his vows with the American people — the 18thcentury English pundit Samuel Johnson would call that the triumph of hope over experience, his classic definition of the second marriage — and he’s returned to his most comfortable role: candidate.

to repel his allies on the left even as it consolidated, even fortified, his opposition on the right. Obama was a silvertongued orator in the campaign, but he lacked a silver bullet in the presidency. He was a darling on the stump, a dud in office. This is not a remarkable view. It is held in the White House itself. Part of the reason was the hand he was dealt. No one underestimates the rot in the U.S. economy, made worse by the crisis in Europe that Obama cannot be expected to control and the competitive challenges from Asia that former Gov.

So it was, campaign, which seemed presumably, with Obama. so beguiling, and Obama’s He ran for president to deal presidency, which managed with the economy, not to be

burdened by it, and to change the way Washington worked, not to bemoan it. Outside the Washington Beltway, and perhaps inside it as well, the president seems to be two men, one a brilliant practitioner of the political arts, the other a conscientious objector to politics. But politics comes in two dimensions. A skilled president must know how to get the office and then know how to use it. Failed presidents triumph in the former and stumble in the latter. Presidents come in multiple dimensions. The political scientist and biographer James MacGregor Burns opened his classic 1970 work on FDR’s wartime presidency by observing that Roosevelt was “divided between the man of principle, of ideals, of faith, crusading for a distant vision on the one hand; and, on the other, the man of Realpolitik, of prudence, of narrow, manageable, short-run goals, intent always on protecting his power and authority in a world of shifting moods and capricious fortune.” Operating from this kind of divided personality — and here we are obliged to acknowledge that Obama is no more complex than Roosevelt, nor does he have a rougher burden than Roosevelt, who faced a Depression that threatened capitalism and a world war that threatened democracy — FDR nonetheless came to personify a kind of political unity. He flourished in electoral politics, and he flourished as president. The gravest warning sign in Obama’s background wasn’t his spare record in the U.S. Senate (Johnson often ridiculed John F. Kennedy for having accomplished almost nothing in the Capitol), nor his limited experience in electoral office (Lincoln had


t’s not a new policy in Lawrence, but it’s still disappointing that officials haven’t figured out a way to keep the city’s only outdoor swimming pool open at least through the Labor Day weekend. Even though there is bound to be plenty of good pool weather left this year, hours for the Outdoor Aquatic Center will be cut drastically this week, when classes begin in the Lawrence public schools. On Thursday and Friday, the pool will be open after school from 4 p.m. to 8:45 p.m.; next Saturday and Sunday, the pool will return to its normal hours of 1 p.m. to 8:45 p.m. But after next Sunday, the pool will be open only from 10 a.m. to 12:45 p.m., Monday through Friday, for lap swimmers. That means the pool won’t be open after school or next weekend and will close for the season after the annual Pooch Plunge, which is scheduled from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. Friday, Aug. 31. We assume officials have all the same reasons they’ve offered before for this early closure: the number of swimmers drops off when school starts, and it’s hard to find enough lifeguards and other staff to keep the pool open. But it’s hard to believe there wouldn’t be sufficient demand to keep the pool open for the last two weekends of August, and staffing doesn’t seem like an insurmountable problem if the pool managers plan ahead. City taxpayers made a sizable investment in the Outdoor Aquatic Center, and it’s too bad to see that facility being less than fully utilized at the end of the summer. LAWRENCE

but one term in the House). Instead, the most troubling aspect of Obama’s past was the 129 abstentions in his Illinois Senate career. They suggested that Obama was more interested in getting elected than in doing the work he had been elected to perform.

Tying rhetoric to action Few accuse President Obama of being a shirker and, in any case, no one measures long-term impact by the length of a president’s day or his attention to detail — not since Ronald Reagan (substantial success despite snoozy afternoons and evenings at TV tables watching old movies) and Jimmy Carter (little success despite grinding workdays and such a freakish attention to detail that he programmed the music in the White House and reviewed requests to use the tennis court). But the mystery about this president is why he has not been able to match his poetic style of campaigning across the country with the prosaic business of governing the country. In 2008, when Obama was a phenomenon as much as a candidate, he sowed excitement not seen since Kennedy and promised a change in governing approach not seen since Reagan. Now he is campaigning again, this time lacing his effort with blistering critiques of Romney, many of which seem to have damaged his rival. But the election in November is far less about Romney than it is about Obama. It is also about this stark fact: This is the first election since 1992 when an incumbent president is in the position of asking not only for a second term but also for a second chance. — David M. Shribman is executive editor of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

Care act praised To the editor: When was the last time your health insurance company sent you a letter that was anything other than a denial of coverage or a notice of premium increase? Thought so. Over the past six years, my health insurance cost increased from $350 per month to $850 per month. The last time I had a major medical expense, it was denied as not covered. It was, but it took me over eight months to get my reimbursement. Last week I had a surreal moment. I got a letter from the insurance company. I started grumbling as I opened it, expecting yet another rate increase. I was astounded to find it contained a rebate for a portion of my premiums paid the previous year! How did this amazing turn of events occur? The Affordable Health Care for America Act, derided by the right as “Obamacare,” includes a provision, called the 80-20 rule, which requires that health insurers spend at least 80 percent of their customers’ premiums on health services, leaving no more than 20 percent for administrative costs and advertising. What a concept! The AHCAA also requires insurers to end the practices of canceling policies

when the insured becomes ill or denying coverage for pre-existing conditions. In exchange, everyone must have insurance. That protects the rest of us from those that would just rely on us to pay their bills through our taxes. Why on earth would anyone think these are bad ideas? Repeal this law? Are you nuts? Doug Burger, Lawrence

Suffrage celebration To the editor: In any baseball game, three strikes and you’re out. But in the Kansas Legislature, it was different. Kansas women made three attempts to gain suffrage — the first in 1867, the second in 1894, and the third in 1912. The first two times the Kansas suffrage amendment was defeated, but not the third. In 1867, suffragists Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B. Anthony, along with others, took a trip through Kansas to win support for women’s suffrage. (In fact, Anthony gave a rousing speech at Fraser Hall in Lawrence.) There were two proposed amendments running concurrently — one for negro suffrage and one for women’s suffrage, and both were defeated. In 1894, women such as Carrie Chapman Catt, who would later head the National American Women Suffrage Association, ran ads and gave speeches

throughout the state. After the amendment’s defeat, more women joined the ranks of the Kansas Equal Suffrage Association, continuing to hold its annual conventions. In 1910, KESA’s president, Catharine Hoffman, along with her officers, set up headquarters in the Kansas State Historical Society. Working tirelessly through a legislative committee and with the encouragement of Gov. Stubbs, the resolution for suffrage was introduced in 1912, passed by both the House and Senate, and became law that same year. These heroic struggles made me wonder why the media is not celebrating this important centennial. That’s why I persuaded the Kansas Legislature to pass a resolution, which they did earlier this year, naming it the Kansas Angels at Sunset Centennial Resolution, in recognition of my book celebrating these wonderful women.

Chef takes lion off menu after protests WICHITA — A Wichita restaurant has pulled lion from a special menu it is offering at a one-nightonly dinner next week after protests from animal rights groups that believe the animal should be listed as an endangered species. Jason Febres, a chef at Taste & See restaurant, acknowledged on his Facebook page that some people were upset that lion was to be served at the exotic dinner Tuesday that also includes kangaroo, alpaca, crocodile and water buffalo, the Wichita Eagle reported Saturday. “We did took a second look ... and realized that yes, it can be a little shocking and disturbing for some people,” Febres posted. “I ... didn’t mean to offend anybody so I decided to make it right and substitute the Lion course.” The sold-out, $160 dinner caused a stir among groups such as wild animal advocate Born Free USA and prompted a petition on the social action site urging people to pressure Febres to cancel the dinner. The chef said he had not planned to serve wild African lion, but instead lion meat that was farm-raised.

Lineman Sterling has huge potential



Charles Krupa/AP Photo

Early last week, the bank clocks screamed triple digits. Offensive line coach Tim Grunhard screamed to “go all out on every play. EVERY PLAY!” And No. 77 kept putting one step in front of another, his breath running away from him. Can Aslam Sterling catch it in time to make a positive impact on this year’s Kansas University football season? Too early to answer, but, man, what an important question. The sun on the Kansas University football practice field beats hotter on Sterling than anybody. For one thing, he’s the biggest guy on the team.

LONDON — Kansas University junior sprinter Diamond Dixon is bringing home a gold medal from the 2012 London Olympic Games as a member of the victorious United States 4x400 relay team. Dixon, who becomes the first female athlete in KU track and field history to win a gold medal and KU’s fifth overall gold medalist of all time, did not run in Saturday’s finals, a race in which the U.S. team of Allyson Felix, Sanya Richards-Ross, D e e D e e Trotter and Dixon Francena McCorory won in 3 minutes, 16.87 seconds.

Edwards nets Nationwide victory WATKINS GLEN, N.Y. (AP) — When push came to shove, Carl Edwards got the best of Brad Keselowski. Edwards, making his first Nationwide start of the season, beat Keselowski on a two-lap dash to the checkered flag on Saturday and won the Zippo 200 at Watkins Glen International. Austin Dillon’s blown right front tire brought out the final stoppage of the 82-lap race around the 11-turn, 2.45-mile layout, and Edwards beat his long-time nemesis on a restart for the second straight time in the race. It was the 38th career victory for Edwards, breaking a tie with

Kevin Harvick for third on the career series list. “This is huge for us,� Edwards said after making his celebratory back flip. “This win means a lot.� Pole-sitter Sam Hornish Jr. finished third, followed by Ricky Stenhouse Jr. and Ron Fellows. Despite a spirited drive from the back of the field, Kyle Busch faded late and finished sixth in his No. 54 Toyota. Elliott Sadler finished 12th and holds a 13-point lead over Stenhouse in the standings. Edwards pulled away on the final restart speeding up through the esses before Keselowski began to close. Edwards missed a shift and Keselowski’s

Dodge pulled alongside Edwards’ No. 60 Ford as the two banged in the turn at the top of the front straightaway heading to take the white flag. Edwards then pulled ahead and sped away to a 1.1-second triumph. “He came up the track and hit me, put me in the wall there,� Keselowski said. “That kind of took away all of my momentum. I didn’t have a chance after that.� The two had passed each other for the final lead change in a race six times, with Keselowski getting the better of Edwards four times before Saturday. Keselowski, who watched last year’s race from the tele-



Lakers a cut above the rest By Rick Gosselin Dallas Morning News

There are championship teams in the NBA. Then there are the championship franchises. The Mavericks were a championship team. The Lakers are a championship franchise. The Lakers underscored their place in the NBA’s pantheon by acquiring verydisgruntled-but-very-talented center Dwight Howard from the Orlando Magic. This on the heels of the free-agent signing of two-time MVP Steve Nash. They join another former MVP, Kobe Bryant. The Lakers were an old team built around one star that wasn’t good enough last season. Does that sound familiar, Mavs fans? The Mavericks hoped to sign hometown hero Deron Williams in free agency this off-season and make a run at Howard the next. But they whiffed on Williams and now loom as a long shot to sign Howard when he becomes free next spring. The Mavericks lost out on Williams because the NBA collective bargaining agreement allows a player’s current team to offer considerably more money than any freeagent suitor. There was almost a $25 million difference in the offers tendered by the Brooklyn Nets and Mavericks, so Williams, logically, took the higher offer. The Lakers have that same luxury next off-season when Howard goes on the market. They can offer Howard more money than the Mavericks, Nets, Heat and anyone else who cares to enter the bidding. If Howard is wearing a championship ring at this time next off-season, it will be even more difficult for him to leave L.A. And that’s what the Lakers do best — win championships. Eleven of them since 1970. They do it with stars, and no one collects stars like the Lakers. They traded for Wilt Chamberlain and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and signed Shaquille O’Neal in free agency. Shrewd trading of draft picks allowed the Lakers to land both Earvin “Magic� Johnson and Bryant. All wear championship rings from the Lakers, as will Howard if he sticks around long enough. The Lakers are three years removed from their last title and were heading in the wrong direction. The Lakers won the Pacific Division last season, but they don’t hang banners in the Staples Center for division titles. Mediocrity in the form of 25 losses and a third seed in the West did not sit well with the Lakers. There’s a difference between being a playoff contender and a championship contender. The Lakers know that difference. The Mavericks are still trying to figure it out.

vision booth while suffering from a broken left ankle and bruised back, started fourth and showed right away he’d be a factor. He took the lead in the chicane on lap 12 from teammate Hornish, outbraking him entering the quick four-turn section. A crash entering the chicane involving Cole Whitt and Victor Gonzalez Jr. had forced the previous stoppage on lap 70. The race restarted with 10 laps to go with Keselowski and Edwards on the front row. “He’ll be coming and it’s just a matter of whether we can hold him off,� Jeremy Bullins, crew chief for Keselowski, said of Edwards.

Montoya claims Sprint pole at Watkins Glen WATKINS GLEN, N.Y. — Juan Pablo Montoya prefers running up front, and it grates on him when he doesn’t. For the second straight week, he has no reason to beat himself up going into the race. Montoya shattered the Sprint Cup qualifying record at Watkins Glen International on Saturday. Montoya won the pole for today’s Finger Lakes 355 with a lap around the 11-turn, 2.45mile layout in 69.438 seconds at 127.020 mph. Kyle Busch set the track record of 69.767 seconds at 126.421 mph a year ago. “All my life I’ve raced to win,� Montoya said after notching his second straight pole in the series and ninth of his career. “The last couple of years have been really frustrating.� Busch qualified second, also eclipsing the track record. Five-time Cup champion Jimmie Johnson was third, followed by Brad Keselowski and Marcos Ambrose. Ryan Newman, five-time Watkins Glen winner Tony Stewart, Clint Bowyer, Ryan Truex Jr. and Jamie McMurray rounded out the top 10. Points leader Dale Earnhardt Jr. qualified 16th. Denny Hamlin and Jeff Burton were in backup cars after wrecking their primary rides in practice on Friday, victims of a track made slippery by Patrick Long’s blown engine. Hamlin was 23rd and Burton 31st. Montoya won the pole last week at Pocono and finished 20th. He has only two top-10 finishes this season and three DNFs, one of the main reasons he’s 21st in the points.


Sporting K.C. edges D.C. KANSAS CITY, KAN. — Graham Zusi notched the winning goal and his 10th assist to lift Sporting Kansas City to a 2-1 win over D.C. United and into sole possession of first place in the Eastern Conference on Saturday night. Teal Bunbury also scored for Sporting (137-4), which broke a four-match league winless streak at Livestrong Sporting Park. Kansas City had gone 0-2-2 at home since beating Toronto FC 2-0 on June 16. United (11-8-3) looked positioned to pick up a road point until Zusi collected Kei Kamara’s long cross in the 63rd minute and shot past goalkeeper Bill Hamid. Bunbury headed in Zusi’s corner kick in the 13th minute, putting Sporting up 1-0, but Nick DeLeon equalized in the 23rd minute for D.C.

But he came for all of this, too. “It’s exciting, and it’s flattering,” Crist said. “And I feel bad that I wasn’t able to get to everyone that came out because I’m really appreciative for them coming out today. The people here are so warm and receptive to myself and the team. It’s great, it’s encouraging, and we play for them.” For two hours Saturday morning, that was exactly who the Jayhawks played for, as their normal practice routine took place under the eyes and ears of 300 or so KU football fans. For the most part, practice went the way it would have gone if the stands had been empty. Players worked, coaches yelled, performance was critiqued. But Crist, Opurum and fellow co-captain Tanner Hawkinson all said adding the live audience added a different element to the day’s work. “It’s so much more fun when you’ve got stands that are full,” Crist said. “It simulates more of a game atmosphere, and that’s what you do all of the hard work for.” Added Opurum: “I think the guys did a really good job today of keeping their focus and not wanting to do too much for the crowd out there. We kind of stayed focused on what the practice was gonna be like, and I think guys did really well today.” Crist was one of those. During the seven-on-seven drill, in which KU’s offense ran live plays against linebackers and defensive backs, Crist completed 11 of 12 passes, including a deep touchdown hook-up with senior wideout D.J. Beshears. The one incompletion probably should have been caught, and KU coach Charlie Weis let the receiver hear about it. But Crist did not use that as an excuse. “I think there was a great deal of consistency, and that’s huge,” he said. “Any time you’re trying to run an efficient offense, consistency’s key. You gotta be able to string drives together, string plays together, and I think we did a good job of that today. I think we went 11-of-12, which was nice. We just gotta keep that up. It can’t be something


weight will be monitored for signs of how well he’s progressing. “I think it’s in your eyes,” Holsopple said. “Kind of like the old saying on ESPN films, ‘You see (John) Riggins running down the field, you can tell by the look in the man’s eyes he’s going to score.’ Same thing here. When he doesn’t have that confused look in his eyes anymore, you know he’s starting to get it.” Senior defensive end Toben Opurum can empathize with Sterling to an extent because he was restricted from summer conditioning before his freshman season as a precaution, he said, after

old,” he said. “But it probably makes (senior tight end Mike) Ragone feel even older.”

Tre bien Freshman wide receiver Tre Parmalee was one of the top performers Saturday, and he shined the brightest during live action. On the final play of seven-on-seven drills, Parmalee caught a widereceiver screen from quarterback Turner Baty, made one quick move and then raced to the end zone untouched. A few minutes later, he added to his highlight reel with a punt return and a kickoff return for touchdowns. “Tre’s turned into a great football player,” said Crist, who remembers Parmalee running around the field at Notre Dame when his dad, Bernie, was the tight-ends coach there. “He’s incredibly motivated. He’s a freshman that’s not scared to compete, and (he’s) trying to make his case that he should be playing.” Asked if seeing the young guy in his huddle made him feel a little long in the tooth, Crist was honest and then took a jab at a former Notre Dame teammate and fellow current Jayhawk. “It makes me feel real

Praise for Pick While Crist said he had faith in all of KU’s wide receivers, he made a point of singling out senior wideout Kale Pick. “Kale’s been having a great camp,” Crist said. “I think all the receivers have done a good job of making plays, and I’m very confident in all the receivers, but some of the things Kale has done athletically have kind of exceeded the expectations that I had for him. (He’s made) some plays when you watch on film you really wow at ’em a little bit.” One such catch came on the third play of sevenon-seven drills, when Pick climbed the ladder in traffic to come down with a rocket thrown by Crist.

results of a heart test raised questions. “It’s not just a physical thing,” Opurum said. “It’s such a mental-toughness thing that we go through all summer. Things are going slow for him right now, but once we get him up to speed, get him in better shape, I think he’ll be a huge asset to our team, no pun intended.” Senior left tackle Tanner Hawkinson often can be seen encouraging Sterling to finish every drill and push himself on every play. “He’s got a really high ceiling,” Hawkinson said. “He needs to get in a little better football shape. He’s a big guy, around 360, 365. He moves really well. He has really good feet. If he can lose maybe 20, 25 pounds, work on getting in a little bit better football shape … I’m sure the style, work ethic is

a little bit different here than it was at juco, but as long as he keeps pushing himself, I think he’s got a very high ceiling.” Captains Opurum and Hawkinson said they think Sterling won’t have to wait until 2013 to make an impact. “It’s going to be all up to him,” Hawkinson said. “It’s pretty tough for him right now, learning a whole new offense, transitioning to Div. I football. We’re all definitely there for him. We’re pushing him. I know it’s tough for him, but I think he’s got a good shot to contribute this year.” So far, the two-deep depth chart lists Riley Spencer or Sterling on the first team and Bryan Peters on the second team. Gavin Howard, listed as first-team right guard, also has played some at right tackle.


Sizemore injured Junior fullback Nick Sizemore came away from Saturday’s practice with a boot on his left foot and crutches under his arms. Asked by teammates what happened, Sizemore simply said, “I broke my foot.” The Jayhawks should know more about the severity of Sizemore’s injury next week.

Center fielders taking center stage again DETROIT (AP) — Austin Jackson glided back across the outfield grass toward the deepest part of Comerica Park, then caught a long flyball a split-second before slamming into the fence. The next day, his counterpart in center field answered with a highlight of his own. Angels rookie Mike Trout hit a home run that landed in the seats in right-center — some 430 feet from home plate — before the ball bounced up onto a concourse. All around the majors, center fielders are taking center stage this season. Whether it’s Andrew McCutchen leading Pittsburgh in a surprising bid for a playoff spot, or Trout and Bryce Harper providing an exciting glimpse of the future, this toughest of

outfield positions suddenly seems loaded with terrific athletes and talented, young hitters. “It’s pretty cool — especially when you get a chance to play against them and you see what they’re doing,” said Jackson, a 25-year-old defensive stalwart who is having a breakout season with the bat for the Detroit Tigers. “It’s a position where you have to be pretty athletic to play out there, obviously, because you’ve got a bigger area to cover. Putting up good numbers is just a plus.” Ken Griffey Jr. in 1997 was the last player to win an MVP award with center field as his primary position. That drought nearly ended last year when Jacoby Ellsbury of the Red Sox and Matt

You’re finding guys who aren’t necessarily playing that one position but are playing all of them, which is a good thing.” — Texas’ Josh Hamilton Kemp of the Dodgers both finished second. This year McCutchen is a candidate in the National League, and Trout could win the award as a rookie in the American League. Josh Hamilton of Texas may also be in the running despite a summer slump. He’s split time almost evenly this year between center and left — after playing more in left when he won the MVP in 2010. “You’re finding guys who aren’t necessarily playing that one position but are playing all of them, which is a good thing,”

Indians’ flawed roster destined to fall apart By Sheldon Ocker Akron Beacon Journal

CLEVELAND — The Indians’ hideous 11-game losing streak is over, but the fallout should last the rest of the season and beyond. For the most part, the reversals were attributable to a flawed roster that was destined to fail from the outset of the season. Then why didn’t the Indians lose eight in a row or 10 in a row earlier in the season, maybe more than once? Because the rock-solid part of the team, setup man Vinnie Pestano and closer Chris Perez, and to a lesser extent Joe Smith, who pitches the seventh inning, almost never let a lead get away. It’s a big advantage for a team whose lineup is almost bereft of run producers in the sixthrough-nine spots to keep the game to six innings. Couple the excellence of the back end of the bullpen with sporadic proficient starts by Justin Masterson, Zach McAllister, and less often by Ubaldo Jimenez, and the Indians were able to win low-scoring, close games. During the first two months of the season, Derek Lowe carried the rotation with an amazing display of pinpoint accuracy with a sinker that forced frustrated batters to beat the ball into the dirt.

Sabathia shelved by sore elbow TORONTO (AP) — CC Sabathia was placed on the 15-day disabled list Saturday because of inflammation and pain in his left elbow, the New York Yankees ace’s second trip to the DL this season. Manager Joe Girardi announced the decision after New York beat the Blue Jays, 5-2, for their fourth straight win. Neither a corresponding roster move, nor a starter for Monday’s game against Texas, has been announced. The move is retroactive to Aug. 9. The Yankees have agreed to a contract with free agent Derek Lowe and are planning to finalize the deal and activate him Monday. The righthander, recently cut by the Cleveland Indians, likely will pitch out of the bullpen. David Phelps is a candidate to take Sabathia’s spot in the rotation. Girardi said Sabathia, the 2007 AL Cy Young award winner, felt stiff two days after his Aug. 3 start against Seattle, but

an MRI showed nothing. Sabathia felt stiff again after pitching at Detroit on Aug. 8. He threw on flat ground Friday rather than throwing his regular bullpen session and continued to experience mild discomfort. “It’s not any worse than it was after the first start, but our concern is it didn’t go away,” Girardi said. “As far as the concern, it’s pretty low level, because it’s not like it got any worse,” Girardi added. “He wants to pitch on Monday, which I’m not surprised (at) because he said he dealt with it before. We just decided, let’s try to get it cleaned up now.” Girardi said Sabathia is scheduled to see a doctor when the Yankees return home Monday, and could receive a cortisone injection. Sabathia has been undergoing treatment since the pain first arose. The Yankees debated skipping Sabathia for one start, but decided an extended break was the wiser plan. Either way, Girardi

stressed that Sabathia’s condition was not considered especially serious. “If it’s October, I’m not sure what we do,” Girardi said. “I think he makes his start.” Girardi said the plan is to activate Sabathia when his DL stint expires and have him return to the rotation Aug. 24 at Cleveland, the city where his major league career began. Sabathia was pulled after 94 pitches in his win at Detroit on Wednesday, and Girardi acknowledged he was being “a little bit cautious” with his tender ace. Sabathia, 12-3 with a 3.56 ERA, missed 18 games earlier this season with a strained left groin. “We’re going to have to deal with it, that’s the bottom line,” Girardi said. “We don’t want to, but we need to have him healthy. If we’re going to continue to move on, we need to have him healthy.” Sabathia was spotted in the clubhouse with an ice pack on his elbow before Saturday’s game.

Hamilton said. “I think it depends on the lineups. In the American League, we’re finding now we can move guys around different nights and get a little deeper on the bench and be able to match guys up to pitching.” The 6-foot-4, 240-pound Hamilton doesn’t necessarily fit the prototype of a speedy, smooth-fielding center fielder, but his athletic ability is obvious, and with 28 home runs, he’s just one example of a legitimate slugger who can play the defensively demanding position. The

6-foot-3 Kemp hit 39 homers last year. McCutchen, meanwhile, has been spectacular in 2012, hitting .369 with 22 homers going into Thursday’s games. “I’m looking at Andrew, this might be the best I’ve ever seen,” Pirates manager Clint Hurdle said. “Wow, this is special. It’s a very special time and place for him in the game. He’s having fun with it. He’s enjoyed this ride, however long it’s going to be. Am I optimistic about his future? Absolutely.” In 2010, major league center fielders produced an OPS (on-base plus slugging percentage) of .731. That number is up to .754 this year, according to STATS, LLC. By contrast, the OPS for third baseman in 2012 is only .742 — and

that’s considered a position for power hitters. Center field has long been one of baseball’s glamour positions, with some of the biggest stars in the game taking pride in being the captain of the outfield. For Adam Jones, it’s a bit of a consolation prize. Jones played shortstop for much of his baseball life, including early in the Seattle farm system before the Mariners converted him to a center fielder. He was traded to Baltimore in 2008 and, despite his reluctance, has blossomed into one of the better outfielders in the game. “I’m a shortstop,” Jones insists. Not in Baltimore, where J.J. Hardy is entrenched at shortstop and Jones is cemented in the patch of grass right behind him.

McIlroy, Singh tied for lead at PGA KIAWAH ISLAND, S.C. (AP) — Tiger Woods watched the flight of his tee shot until he could see it drifting too far right, and he hung his head slightly as the ball tumbled off the green. Already with three bogeys in seven holes, it looked as though nothing was going right for him in the PGA Championship. Dark clouds seem to have followed Woods on the weekend at majors this year. On Saturday at Kiawah Island, they might have saved him. Facing a 7-foot putt to avoid another bogey, the darkening sky crackled with thunder and play was suspended with 26 players having to return for a marathon finish Sunday. That might be good news for Woods, not so much for Rory McIlroy. McIlroy raced to the top of the leaderboard,

Woodland struggles with 75 J-W Staff Reports

KIAWAH ISLAND, S.C. — The back nine again proved Gary Woodland’s undoing Saturday at the PGA Championship. Woodland, a former Kansas University golfer, had three bogeys and a double-bogey during a five-hole stretch and not even a tee shot that lodged into a tree on the third hole could slow him. Once he finally found it stuck in a rotted section of a thick limb, he took a penalty drop and drilled his wedge to 6 feet to save par. He went out in 32 after a bogey on the ninth hole

from Nos. 13-17 during a round of 3-over 75 on Saturday. Woodland was tied for second after a firstday 67, but he fell back to 24th with a 79 in round two and to a tied for 47th with a 75 in Round Three. He played the front nine in 2-under Saturday. and was at 6-under par, tied with Vijay Singh, who was on the par-3 eighth hole. “It’s nice going into the final day — hopefully, if we get it finished — in a great position,” McIlroy said. “And it being 27 holes, I definitely don’t mind. I don’t mind if it takes a while to get done.”

Singh started and finished his short day with birdies — an 18-foot putt on the first, and a 25-foot putt on the par-5 seventh. Right behind was Adam Scott, showing more magic than hangover from his British Open collapse last month. Scott was three shots out of the lead when the third round began and cruising along with pars until four birdies on the last five holes of the front nine. That stretch began with a shot he holed from a sandy area on the par-3 fifth, and it ended with a 45-foot birdie putt across the green on the ninth. “Right now I am in good position,” Scott said. “Unfortunate not to continue because I was on a little bit of a run. But hopefully, I’ll come back out and play 27 good ones tomorrow.” About the only players disappointed to see the

windswept third round end were the players who had already finished — Bo Van Pelt (67) at 3-under 213, Steve Stricker (67) at 2-under 214, Padraig Harrington (69) another shot behind. And Woods. “I got off to a rough start today and couldn’t get anything going,” Woods said through a spokesman. “I’ll come back tomorrow morning and see what happens. There are a lot of holes left to play.” He failed to birdie the par-5 second hole when he tugged his approach into the back bunker and only blasted out to 20 feet. The real damage came on the third hole, the one that saved McIlroy. Woods hit a wedge into 4 feet, and his birdie putt raced by the edge of the cup. It unraveled after that. He hit a spectator with his

tee shot at No. 4, signing a glove for the fan, went over the green and muffed a difficult chip. Woods had to make a 4-foot bogey putt, and then hit another low hook that led to bogey on the fifth. He started the third round tied for the lead with Singh and Carl Pettersson at 4-under 140. Seven holes into the third round, Woods already was five shots behind. It was starting to look familiar to Woods, who has yet to break par on the weekend at a major this year. This was the second time this year Woods had a share of the 36-hole lead going into weekend at the majors. He is 13-over par in his six weekend rounds at majors, including a 75-73 finish at Olympic Club to go from a tie for the lead to a tie for 21st in the U.S. Open.

Veterans to sit By Jesse Newell

PARIS — Kansas University’s men’s basketball team will have a different look for today’s final exhibition game against AMW Team France. KU coach Bill Self said after Saturday’s 74-73 loss that seniors Elijah Johnson, Travis Releford and Jeff Withey would not play in the team’s European finale. Kevin Young might not play, but if he does, it’ll only be to get some work on the perimeter. Self said his plan all along was to rest his three starting seniors today to get a better look at his newcomers. “Those guys deserve it. They haven’t had a chance to play as much,” Self said of his new guys. “I know what those returning guys can do. It’s going to be good for these other guys to get their feet wet.”

Injury updates Self said that he never considered playing guard Ben McLemore on Saturday because of the freshman’s injured groin. “It’s bothering him. He can barely walk,” Self said. “He’s still walking with some pain, so he’s definitely not going to play (today) either.” KU guard Milt Doyle also left Saturday’s game because of a dislocated finger. Self said the freshman was fine and would be available for today’s game. Players bumming Though it was only an exhibition loss, most of KU’s players looked dejected when walking to their locker room after the game. “If you’re a basketball player and you play for the University of Kansas, you want to be a winner,” KU guard Naadir Tharpe said. “You should be disappointed by this game. We lost.” KU guard Elijah Johnson had mixed thoughts after the defeat.

KANSAS’ ELIJAH JOHNSON, LEFT, PASSES around AMW Team France’s Xavier Gaillou during KU’s 74-73 exhibition loss Saturday in Paris. “I like that our team fights back. I like that I see that in our team, and I like that our young fellas aren’t scared of an opportunity,” Johnson said. “Mixed emotions because I love to win. I don’t really like to lose, but I think that it was best to lose now so we could learn from it.”

Short on skill … for now Self was quick to point out in the postgame that while KU didn’t play well, it wasn’t because of a lack of effort. “What I would probably say more than anything else is that we’ve got a long ways to go to become a good team. Of course, we knew that,” Self said. “We’ve used 10 practices to try to get better, and we should be further along, but we’re just not a very skilled basketball team right now. “We’ve got good athletes, but we don’t pass it, catch it and dribble it very good. We’ve got to get where our guys can make plays.” The Jayhawks’ post players had an especially difficult time handling the ball on Saturday, fumbling

Johnson challenged Following Self’s critical words about his returning players Saturday, KU senior point guard Johnson said he knew exactly what the coach wanted from him. “To run the team. To be a point guard. And that’s what I’m going to do,” Johnson said. “I don’t run from a challenge. If you ask me to be a point guard, I’ll be a point guard. “I think I’m personally a point guard. I think it’s in my blood. I think that I have fun leading and controlling and telling everybody what they should be doing, so maybe this is testing me to step up and do it the whole time on the court and not just do it when it’s crunch time.”

fouled on a drive by Zach Peters with 6.1 seconds left and made both free throws. On KU’s final possession, Johnson drove the length of the floor before kicking out to Naadir Tharpe for an open threepointer on the left wing. The shot hit front iron before bouncing away. “I thought it was going to go in. As many shots as I didn’t shoot well tonight … I felt like that last shot that I shot was going to be able to go in,” said Tharpe, who scored eight points on 4-for11 shooting from the floor and 0-for-5 from three. “But it didn’t fall. I’m going to get another chance to shoot that shot, and I’m going to be ready to knock it down.” KU played once again without freshman guard Ben McLemore, who continues to be hampered by a sore groin. Self still wasn’t taking it easy on his guys. “We’re not very good at all. We can improve on everything,” Self said. “I would just like to be able to pass and dribble and catch. That would be a good starting point. Forget about shooting or guarding or anything.” KU had 27 turnovers, compared to 23 for AMW. Self was so frustrated with his returning players that he started the second half — KU led, 36-34, at the break — with a lineup of that included walk-ons Evan Manning and Niko Roberts. “To be honest with you, I just thought that our main guys were so bad they

a few of passes out of bounds for turnovers. “One of the most simple things ever; we couldn’t catch the ball tonight,” KU freshman forward Zach Peters said. “Honestly, we’ve got to work on doing the easy things right and then the hard things after that, because we can’t even do the easy things right now.”

Obviously, we had to play them to have a chance to win the game, but I wasn’t happy with any of them. I didn’t think any of them played worth a flip.” Johnson, who finished with five points on 2-for-10 shooting to go with four assists and two turnovers, said his coach’s assessment of the veterans was accurate. “A lot of people go against the grain, or a lot of people just say what they think they should say in the interview. But I personally agree with him,” Johnson said. “He’s setting standards right now. Last year, he set standards, and it got us second place, which disappointed our whole state. “So I understand everything he’s doing and setting standards and want-

THE REV. MATT COX SPEAKS DURING A JULY 29 EASTLAKE CHURCH SERVICE at South Middle School. The school auditorium was transformed into a sanctuary of sorts for the service. The church has been splitting time primarily between the school and the Lawrence Holiday Inn Convention Center, but members hope to find a permanent location.

EastLake among several religious groups in city that don’t have permanent home By Terry Rombeck

Bob Szrot grew up in the Catholic Church, believing Mass was held on consecrated ground. Now he sometimes worships with the smell of hotel swimming pool chlorine wafting from the hallways; sometimes in a space typically populated by 13-yearolds; and sometimes in a 100-year-old concert venue. He’s a member of EastLake Community Church, a young-but-booming nondenominational congregation (a “church for the rest of us,” as lead pastor Matt Cox calls

it) that has spent this year as a nomadic church, with no permanent home. “Sometimes I have to remind myself where we’re going to be,” Szrot says. “I get the question every so often, ‘Are we going to get a real building?’ But the people are the church, not the building itself.” EastLake began weekly services at South Junior High School in January 2010. Services were in the auditorium, gathering space was in the entryway and children’s activities were in class- A TEMPORARY SIGN OUTSIDE South Middle School marks the location of EastLake Church services.

It’s an election year, which means people’s opinions are strong — and they’re not afraid to share them. Since it’s not fair for the Mitts and Baracks of the world to have all the fun, we’ve opened up the polls for our 2012 Best of Lawrence contest, which can be found online at bestoflawrence.

Last year we dusted off Best of Lawrence after a fiveyear hiatus. After thousands of votes, we were able to tally the readers’ choices in 24 categories. We’re expanding it this year, asking for your picks

in more than 70 categories. We want you to tell us where we need to eat and drink, where we need to shop, who should clean our teeth, who we need to read, who we need to see, so on and so forth. Voting is simplified this year. Instead of different rounds of nominations, we’re giving readers and residents one round — one long round — of

voting. At the end of the voting period, which lasts until Sept. 7, nominations will be tallied and our winners will be announced. We’ll be using social media to promote Best of Lawrence, so look for the Twitter hashtag #bestoflarry. Look for the Best of Lawrence winners to be announced in the Sept. 30 edition of the Lawrence Journal-World.

But by the end of 2011, the church had outgrown its allotted space, and the school district informed leaders that the fire marshal could no longer allow the current configuration, says Cox, the church’s founder.

Cooking With Kids: Healthy Skills and Habits for Life



Eudora girl flourishing despite accident

If the idea of cooking with children — young children — gives you the chills, you’re not alone. It’s a common feeling among anyone who has spent time cleaning up after a two-year-old eats lunch.


Alexis Foster, 8, of Eudora, participates in a variety of sports despite suffering a severed foot in a mowing accident when she was 2. She also has taken home more than two dozen pageant trophies. Participating in pageants has helped give her confidence, and she believes there’s nothing that she can’t do.

In March 2003, as U.S. forces were pouring into Iraq, I interviewed Gore Vidal at his elegant home in the Hollywood Hills. The conflict’s opening days hadn’t gone quite as smoothly as some Pentagon planners had anticipated, and Vidal, a self-described “master of the I-told-youso school,” was in his usual calmly excoriating mode as he surveyed the unfolding military campaign. “We’ve been in the empire business before, but never so nakedly and never so stupidly,” Vidal said, launching into a fierce and professorial discourse that touched on the Monroe Doctrine, the Mexican War of the 1840s and the Spanish-American War. Vidal, the prolific man of letters who died recently at age 86, was a lifelong connoisseur of empires, with a particular interest in their Romanesque antecedents. He was fascinated not simply by the rise and fall of empires but by their intersection with cults of personality, byzantine sexual intrigues and the backroom power grabs of the mendacious and ambitious. Like Edward Gibbon, another historical writer who never let too many facts get in the way of a ripping yarn, Vidal as an artist reveled in the Technicolor spectacle of greatpower decline, even as he grieved and fumed at the self-destructive waste of empirical over-reaching. The ironist in Vidal couldn’t help viewing the apocalyptic orgy with bemused detachment. This was a man, after all, who helped write the screenplay for “Caligula,” Penthouse publisher Bob Guccione’s monumentally awful sword, sandals and

AUTHOR GORE VIDAL, pictured on Dec. 9, 1974, in Los Angeles, died July 31 at age 86. Vidal used classical Rome as a template for analyzing modern America. skin “epic” about the last days of the cruel and corrupt Roman emperor. Vidal used classical Rome as a template for analyzing modern America. He was fascinated by antiquity, as he demonstrated in historical fictions such as “Julian” (1964), an epistolary novel about the emperor who tried to roll back Christianity in favor of the old pagan gods, and his 1981 novel “Creation,” set in the 5th century B.C., when Socrates, Zoroaster, the Buddha and Confucius all walked the earth. The writer spent much of his adult life in exile, ensconced in a villa poetically on Italy’s Amalfi Coast, like some latter-day Roman philosopher, half Stoic, half Epicurean. He invested a number of his many essays with acidic observations about what he saw as the American march of folly, spurred by the country’s adoption of a foreign policy he archly described as “perpetual war for perpetual peace.” By becoming an empire, he insisted, the country was betraying its founders’ republican principles. But Citizen Vidal never entirely turned his back on the United States or disengaged from its painful midlife crises. Politics was in Vidal’s intellectual DNA, as the grandson of

a Democratic U.S. senator from Oklahoma and a step-relative of the future Jacqueline Kennedy. Vidal in 1982 launched an unsuccessful campaign for one of California’s U.S. Senate seats. Like writer-pugilist Norman Mailer, a Vidal nemesis who once ran for mayor of New York, and novelist Mario Vargas Llosa, who made a bid for the Peruvian presidency, Vidal embraced the role of an artist/activist who relished getting up from the typewriter now and then to take part in a round of verbal fisticuffs. He was both consummate insider and consummate outsider, a gay man at a time when being a homosexual could land you in prison, but an extraordinarily privileged gay man who worked and mingled in Hollywood, whose plays were performed on Broadway and whose opinions reverberated in Washington. What Vidal implicitly and explicitly challenged in his voluminous output was the idea of American exceptionalism, the notion (much in vogue today in certain circles) that the country is uniquely favored among nations and therefore its actions in the long run can’t be anything but noble and beneficial for the human race.

Vidal likewise rejected the idea that any one religion had a monopoly on morality. He was a particularly fierce critic of the three great monotheistic faiths. His 1992 novel “Live From Golgotha: The Gospel According to Gore Vidal,” is an irreverent send-up of the New Testament that infuriated the Vatican. In a Harvard University lecture, Vidal called for America to be one nation united not under God, but under “our common humanity.” Vidal distrusted all forms of political and religious hagiography. He cast the Great Emancipator as something of a neurotic mess in his novel “Lincoln.” He depicted Aaron Burr, a villain of sixth-grade textbooks, as an honorable Renaissance man, and George Washington, Thomas Jefferson and Alexander Hamilton as incompetent schemers. His revisionist outlook struck some critics as brilliant and others as almost gleefully perverse, especially in his twilight years. History and morality, he insisted, are treacherous, both for those who make them and those who try to interpret them. Nations and individuals who think they’re immune from these traps, Vidal believed, do so at their peril.

Previously unpublished Fitzgerald story appears By David L. Ulin Los Angeles Times

Julie Trowbridge retired Lawrence “‘My Almost Certainly Real Imaginary Jesus’ (advance copy by Kelly Barth).”



By Reed Johnson

Renée Marsh, homemaker, Lawrence “‘A Cartoon History of the Universe’ (by Larry Gonick).”

Sunday, August 12, 2012

The New Yorker last week printed and posted on its website a previously unpublished piece of fiction by F. Scott Fitzgerald called “Thank You for the Light.” It’s the story of “a pretty, somewhat faded woman of forty” named Mrs. Hanson, “who sold corsets and girdles, travelling out of Chicago” and for whom life’s greatest pleasure comes in the form of a cigarette. “Smoking meant a lot to her sometimes,” Fitzgerald tells us. “She worked very hard and it had some

ability to rest and relax her psychologically. She was a widow and she had no close rela- Fitzgerald tives to write to in the evenings, and more than one moving picture a week hurt her eyes, so smoking had come to be an important punctuation mark in the long sentence of a day on the road.” It’s not hard to see why “Thank You for the Light,” which Fitzgerald

wrote in 1936, was never published until now. At less than 1,200 words, this is a glancing tale, more of a sketch than a story, dating from around the same time as the essay “The Crack-Up,” in which the author details his state of breakdown and despair. “Of course all life is a process of breaking down,” Fitzgerald wrote there, “but the blows that do the dramatic side of the work — the big sudden blows that come, or seem to come, from outside — the ones you remember and blame things on and, in moments of weakness,

tell your friends about, don’t show their effect all at once. There is another sort of blow that comes from within — that you don’t feel until it’s too late to do anything about it, until you realize with finality that in some regard you will never be as good a man again.” “Thank You for the Light” doesn’t get into any of that, although it does come with a clever twist. Prevented from smoking by a variety of “hatched-faced” clients “who did not like other people’s self-indulgence,” Mrs. Hanson finds herself in a church

where “(i)n her imagination, the Virgin came down, like in the play ‘The Miracle,’ and took her place and sold corsets and girdles for her and was tired, just as she was. Then for a few minutes Mrs. Hanson must have slept.” I don’t want to give away the ending, but let’s just say there’s an unexpected benediction of a kind. And in that moment, we’re reminded that, even at his slightest, Fitzgerald was a deft creator, able to evoke the most mundane transformations with a graceful sense of style.

Wickedly funny ‘Dead Stars’ digs into reality-driven celebrity By Carolyn Kellogg Los Angeles Times

It starts with Telma, a plucky adolescent who’s not only the youngest breast-cancer survivor ever but quite possibly the most ambitious. She is unceasingly cheerful, a supportive force on the ward, a favorite of her doctors and nurses, and writes “kancer” with a “k” as a way of taking away its power. She has taken her cancer fame as far as it can go, performing at celebrity fundraisers with the likes

of Michael Douglas and Beyonce, but she wants more: She’s set her sights on a role on “Glee.” Her drive seesaws between adorable and appalling — but this is Bruce Wagner, so things tip toward the untoward. Wagner has said he does not like to be called a satirist, but the scabrous point of view fits. “Dead Stars” is a manic, hypersexualized take-down of Hollywood wannabes and strivers, a relentless, wickedly funny, pornographic flash on the eddies of fame in the pres-

ent moment. Before we even get to Telma, there are pages with just a few bits of text typically found online, such as “841,294 people like this.” Like reading on the Internet, the text of the novel is often jumpy, disconnected, following a character’s thoughts in interruption-prone streamof-consciousness run-on sentences. The book is built on a series of internal narrations, character snapshots that fall into a swift narrative line. There is Jerilynn’s

brother Jerzy, a paparazzo in his 20s; his sort-of girlfriend Tom-Tom, a disgraced “American Idol” contestant with prodigious drug capacity and the bisexual wherewithal to work her way back into show business; Gwen, guilt-ridden mother of Telma; Jacquie, mother of Jerzy and Jerilynn, a formerly successful photographer who has taken a job at Sears Portrait Studio; Michael Douglas (yes, that Michael Douglas) postcancer, considerate and

sage; Biggie, a 12-year-old savant whose movie ideas are fueling a new upstart studio, except something has gone wrong with his brain; and schmucky writer Bud Wiggins, back after first appearing in Wagner’s 1991 debut “Force Majeure,” his career in doldrums for 30 years, living on his 92-year-old mother’s couch and off the good graces of Michael Tolkin (“The Player”). The text is splattered with font changes, profanity, emoticons and sex

acts so vividly described that many chapters are marked with the warning “EXPLICIT.” There are places where this book bogs down — the drugged-out voices start to blur, one character’s mad rantings are uninterestingly bonkers, and sometimes jumping from one storyline to another disrupts the book’s considerable momentum. Yet overall the book is a total leap, a stylistic satiric attack, an XXX accomplishment.

Is having faith in horoscopes contradictory to faith in God? ‘Ultimate’ faith can still be in God

Sean Kilpatrick/The Canadian Press

JAMAICA’S USAIN BOLT POSES AFTER HIS VICTORY in the men’s 200 meters Thursday at the Summer Olympics in London.

Olympic champions bust a move The cauldron remained intact. His evening went downhill from there. The next morning Harting tweeted: “‘Puuh i just got robbed while I did some work to please athletic fans! I lost all my accredition (sic) for Olympic Village! - no entrance.” Maybe he could just bring a photo. The man is hard to miss.

By Jill Lawless Associated Press

LONDON — From the track to the ring to the sandpit, this crop of Olympians just can’t stop the beat. The London Games have brought an outpouring of crazy, creative victory celebrations.

Funky jigs Kenyan steeplechase winner Ezekiel Kemboi celebrated his gold medal with a hip-swiveling, armshaking peacock dance for 80,000 people in the Olympic Stadium. At the ExCel center, U.S. boxing champ Claressa Shields broke into a combination jig-and-fistbump when she took gold in one of the first-ever Olympic women’s boxing contests. Over at the beach volleyball venue, American Misty May-Treanor — a former “Dancing With the Stars” contestant — broke into a funky jig in the sand as she celebrated winning gold with partner Kerri Walsh Jennings. “I just had to get out there and let it out,” MayTreanor said. And the antics aren’t confined to land. Australia’s Malcolm Page and Matthew Belcher celebrated winning sailing gold Friday by back-flipping off their 470 sailboat, which then capsized.

AUSTRALIA’S CREW MATHEW BELCHER and Malcolm Page, foreground, celebrate after winning the gold medal of the 470 men’s class sailing competition at the London 2012 Summer Olympics, Friday in Weymouth and Portland, England. liams celebrated Olympic gold with a “Crip Walk” — a fancy-footwork dance that originated with the Los Angeles street gang and later spread around the world. Her sister Venus, sitting in the stands, looked delighted. Wimbledon, the very proper home of the All-England Lawn Tennis Association, had never seen anything like it, and a few commentators were not amused. “It was just me,” the U.S. medalist said later. “I love to dance.”

Cartwheels Williams wasn’t the only champ to raise a few eyebrows. The gold-winning U.S. women’s soccer team capped its victories with cartwheels, front flips and Walk this way a team rendition of the Tennis star Serena Wil- “worm” — sometimes even

in the middle of a game. “I wouldn’t like it if our team did that,” said New Zealand coach Tony Readings. “We try to work on scoring goals. We haven’t got time to work on celebrations.” His team lost to the Americans 2-0.

The Incredible Hulk German discus thrower Robert Harting’s response to winning gold was not a dance so much as a force of nature. The 280-pound behemoth roared, ripped his shirt to shreds like the Incredible Hulk, grabbed a German flag, ran a lap of the track over the hurdles — not too shabby, either, for such a big guy — and then tried to wrench one of the burning torches from the Olympic cauldron.

The legend But in his celebrations as on the track, Usain Bolt is in a class by himself. The Jamaican sprinter’s trademark lightning bolt — arm stretched to the sky as if he’s about to shoot an arrow — has taken over Olympic Park. Exuberant visitors were seen replicating the pose thousands of times as they poured out of Olympic Stadium after Bolt won the 200 meters Thursday night for his second gold of these games. Police officers in Bobby helmets, firefighters — even London Mayor Boris Johnson, who certainly lacks the sprinter’s svelte physique — have all joined in. Bolt himself shook up his celebration routine after the 200 meters. The self-proclaimed living legend glided across the finish line, placed an index finger to his lips in a silent reproach to those who had doubted him, then dropped to the track and did some push-ups. The crowd went wild.

Study tracks rise of feminine pronouns By Hillel Italie Associated Press

NEW YORK — In the opening pages of “The Feminine Mystique,” Betty Friedan consciously captured the despair of so many housewives — and unknowingly anticipated a shift in language that would mirror the revolution to come in women’s lives. “As she made the beds, shopped for groceries, matched slipcover material, ate peanut butter sandwiches with her children, chauffeured Cub Scouts and Brownies, lay beside her husband at night,” Friedan wrote in her 1963 book, “she was afraid to ask even of herself the silent question — ‘Is this all?’” The average reader might catch such “Mad Men” details as “matched slipcover material.” But a linguist or psychologist will be keeping score: “She” and “her” each are used twice; “herself” once. Not a single “he,” his” or “himself” appears. The golden age of the male pronoun was ending. According to a study released Thursday, the “heshe” gap in books — one that has always favored the masculine — has dramatically narrowed since the release of Friedan’s feminist classic. Drawing upon nearly 1.2 million texts in the Google Books archive, three university researchers tracked gender pronouns from 1900 to 2008. The ratio of male to female pro-

Pennebaker. nouns was roughly 3.5:1 until 1950, when the gap began to widen as more women stayed home after World War II, and peaked at around 4.5:1 in the mid-1960s. The ratio had shrunk to 3:1 by 1975, and less than 2:1 by 2005. “These trends in language quantify one of the largest, and most rapid, cultural changes ever observed: The incredible increase in women’s status since the late 1960s in the U.S.,” Jean M. Twenge, a psychology professor at San Diego State University and author of “Generation Me,” said in a statement. “Those numbers are quite staggering,” says James W. Pennebaker, author of “The Secret Life of Pronouns” and chair of the psychology department

at the University of Texas in Austin. “Pronouns are a sign of people paying attention and as women become more present in the workforce, in the media and life in general, people are referring to them more.” During a recent interview, Twenge said that she and her fellow scholars — W. Keith Campbell, who heads the psychology department at the University of Georgia; and one of his students, Brittany Gentile — had been talking about the Google database as a resource for studying gender. They liked the idea of starting at 1900, because pronouns have not changed since “thee” and “thou” fell out of style in the 1800s. Google offers much more information than what was immediately available just a few years ago, Twenge notes, although the material is far from complete; the search engine’s archive contains just 4 percent of all books published in the U.S. since 1800. But Twenge and her colleagues concluded that gender was not a factor in which books Google included. “You have this huge sample, with no biases,” Twenge says. “And you have an agreed upon set of words.” “It seems very comprehensive and well done,” Pennebaker says. “There are two types of data, imperfect data and no data. If you’re going to wait around for perfect data, you are going to wait around forever.”

From scholarly releases to popular fiction, books by and about women have proliferated in the past half century. Nine of the top 10 books on USA Today’s current best-seller list were written by women and publishers have long believed that more women than men buy books. According to the market researchers Simba Information, around 60 percent of those purchasing books are women. The new study confirms women’s great advances in education and in their success in getting published, says Erin Belieu, an award-winning poet and co-director of VIDA: Women in Literary Arts, a nonprofit organization founded in 2009. “Women have certainly increased their ‘literary output’ in the last two decades particularly,” she wrote in an email to The Associated Press. “And women fiction writers specifically have been able to achieve a large economic impact within the publishing industry.”

The Rev. Mary Newberg Gale, associate pastor, First Presbyterian Church, 2415 Clinton Parkway: Faith is, in its purest form, belief in something. Theologian Paul Tillich defined faith as that which you place your ultimate trust in and loyalty to. Everyone has faith in something. Even noted atheists like Richard Dawkins have faith — it is just in science and rationality rather than in the divine. The question people of faith face is one Tillich poses: Where does your ultimate loyalty and trust lie? The use of “ultimate” is a deliberate one to differentiate among the many things to which we give our loyalty and/or trust. Faithful believers of many religions can be loyal to their alma maters, a particular political party or a sports team. Faithful believers can trust in their partners, their children or even their horoscopes. These things can be right and good in the proper framework. Disorder and discord come when we put our faith in those things above faith in the divine.

W h e n m o n e y , status, success, or power begin to rule our actions rather than Newberg Gale the love, respect, selflessness and care for one another nearly universally taught across religious lines, we lose a piece of our humanity. As humans we have a tendency to focus solely on ourselves and our needs, so it is important to place our highest, or ultimate, trust and loyalty in things that turn us outside ourselves into proper relationship with the world. Faith in horoscopes, astrology, or even the Jayhawks is not necessarily incompatible with faith in the divine. We must, however, remember where our ultimate loyalty lies, and re-evaluate that framework throughout our lives in order to turn again and again to the divine as our most trusted authority. — Send email to Mary Newberg Gale at fpcfamilies@

Don’t put faith in the wrong hands Rod Hinkle, pastor, North Lawrence Christian Church, 647 Elm St.: Yes, dear friend, having faith in horoscopes is contradictory to having faith in God. Do the people who write horoscopes have personal access to the will of God for your life? Why consult mediums and sorcery when you can receive guidance from God? Why do you need to “know” the future when you already trust God for each step of your life? Surely as a Christian you must have a relationship with your Abba, Father God, the Creator of the stars. Saul, the first king of Israel (circa 1000 B.C.) fell so far away from God that he could not or would not consult God. Facing a strong military power, he went to the witch of Endor (see 1 Samuel 28) to consult demons as to his future. To his surprise, God sent Samuel from the dead to warn him of impending doom. God’s command to Israel, and for you, too, my friend, if you are a Christian, protects you from falling into the hands of demons. Having faith in God, you may not place your faith in horoscopes. Surely modern people know that their fate is not “in their stars.” Perhaps for you, hopefully, it is nothing more than a fanciful game. However, the stars do speak a message loud and clear that all can hear. “The heav-

ens declare the glory of God (their Creator); the skies proclaim the work of His hands. Day after Hinkle day they pour forth speech; night after night they display knowledge. There is no speech or language where their voice is not heard. Their voice goes out into all the earth, their words to the ends of the world.” (Psalm 19:1-4) And, “O Lord, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth! You have set your glory above the heavens ... When I consider your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which You have set in place, what is man that you are mindful of him?” (Psalm 8:1, 3, 4) The stars proclaim that “somebody bigger than you or I” created them. The orderly universe in all its beauty and glory, the galaxies innumerable, the precise and perfect location of this home of ours proclaim that the wisdom of God, Creator, Father and Savior is our source of fullness of life. For the Lord said, “This is life eternal: that they might know You, the only True God, and Jesus Christ whom He has sent.” (John 17:3) — Send email to Rod Hinkle at

Abnormal blooms a sign of disease C

oneflowers and blackeyed Susans are tough Kansas natives that withstand many of the challenges of the Kansas landscape, but this year a disease called aster yellows is taking its toll on these perennial flowers. One of the most recognizable symptoms of aster yellows is an abnormality in flower growth. On coneflowers especially, flowers of infected plants are often smaller than normal, misshapen, green or greenish-yellow, and have petals coming out of the center of the flower rather than just the outside edges.

Garden Calendar

Jennifer Smith

In other plants — more than 300 species are susceptible to aster yellows — symptoms include yellowing, stunting and witches’ brooming of growth. Plants infected with aster yellows should be removed from the landscape and destroyed to prevent the spread. There is no treatment for the disease, and there are no resistant or immune plant varieties. Luckily, aster yellows is not aggressive and typically only affects a small number of plants in a given area. In large plantings or commercial production, an integrated pest management approach includes control of the aster leafhopper, which transmits the disease. Nearby weeds, which can host and harbor the disease, should also be controlled. If you have a plant that you suspect is infected with aster yellows, you can submit a portion of the plant, the whole plant, or pictures of the plant to the Douglas County Extension Master Gardener Hotline at the K-State Research and Extension—Douglas County

office, 2110 Harper St. Trained garden center staff will also be able to recognize the disease. Perhaps the most interesting thing about the prevalence of aster yellows this season is that the disease is typically more of a problem in cool, wet summers. Researchers

are unsure about what is causing its prevalence this season, although infection may have occurred during the prolonged spring temperatures experienced in this area this year. Aster yellows also has an interesting life cycle. The disease is caused by an or-

ganism called a phytoplasma, which scientists used to call a mycoplasmalike organism. A phytoplasma is somewhere between a virus and a bacterium, although it is sometimes called virus-like. It spreads when aster leafhoppers feed on infected plants and ingest the phytoplasma. The phytoplasma multiplies within the leafhopper. The leafhopper then transmits the phytoplasma to new plants as it feeds throughout the insect’s approximate 100-day life cycle. Because aster leafhoppers lay their eggs in leaf tissue, the insects may acquire the phytoplasma as soon as they begin feeding. Plants commonly affected by aster yellows include:

Background on Steelcraft toys takes digging to unearth By Terry Kovel

Knowing the name of the maker of any collectible or antique adds value, but sometimes a name creates a mystery. There are many vintage children’s toys marked “Steelcraft,” but books or online searches don’t quickly turn up the history of the mark. These toys were made by Murray Ohio Manufacturing Co., a Cleveland firm that opened in 1919 to make parts for that recent invention, the automobile. By 1923, Murray also was making toy cars using the steel and production methods it used to manufacture full-size car parts. The toys were marketed as Steelcraft Wheel Goods. This diversity helped Murray survive the Depression. The company’s pedal cars, airplanes, coaster wagons, bicycles and smaller wheeled toys were marked “Steelcraft,” the identification seen by today’s collector. Murray has made many other products, including lawn mowers and tractors. It even made special-order toy trucks that looked like a customer’s full-size delivery trucks. Murray is still in business.

I had the chair refinished once and the leather on the cushions replaced. Can you give me information on the current price? The first Morris chairs were made in England by the firm of Morris, Marshall, Faulkner & Co. around 1866. The Morris chair is one of the first reclining chairs. Many furniture makers copied the design, and it was an especially popular style among Arts and Crafts furniture makers. The most famous examples of antique Morris chairs were made by the Craftsman Workshops of Gustav Stickley in Syracuse, N.Y. A Stickley Morris chair from about 1912 recently sold for $4,500 at auction. Other antique Morris chairs can sell anywhere from hundreds to thousands of dollars.

THIS LARGE PRESSED-STEEL TOY AIRPLANE has a 26 1/2-inch wingspan. It was made in about 1919. The tri-motor with a “U.S. Mail” logo is marked “Steelcraft.” It sold for $881 at Bertoia Auctions in Vineland, N.J. ucts Co. of Brooklyn, N.Y. Hammered aluminum giftware was popular from the 1930s through the 1950s. The Rodney Kent line was developed under the supervision of Stanley Gelford, who named the line after two streets near his office: Rodney and Kent. The line includes various serving pieces made of an alloy of aluminum and manganese. Most pieces are decorated with tulips. Some have ribbon and flower handles. Shapes were numbered from 400 to 499. The number on your tray indicates it is the 14-by-20-inch tray. Some pieces are marked “Rodney Kent Silver Co.,” although the pieces are made of aluminum, not silver. Some had paper labels or tags instead of a

mark; others have no tag or mark at all. Prices today are much lower than they were in the 1950s. Your tray might sell for $25. Q: I have an unusual beaded evening bag that belonged to my grandmother. I guess it’s from about 1910 or 1920. The beads are sewn in a flower design in colors resembling peacock feathers. I think the top is silver plate. Both sides have a design of a man in a boat; on one side he’s being greeted, and on the other he’s being bid farewell. The clasp is two opposing acorns. I would like to know if it has any value. A: Beaded bags were in fashion during the 19th century and the early de-

cades of the 20th. Companies in the United States, Czechoslovakia, France, Germany and Italy made beaded bags. The foundations of the bags were knit or made on a loom. Early bags were decorated with tiny blown glass beads sewn in floral or scenic designs. Some had as many as 1,000 beads per square inch. Only the well-to-do could afford them since they cost about $5, a considerable sum in the 19th century. Bags with simpler designs or those made with a single color date from the early 1900s. Art Deco designs became popular in the 1920s. Cutsteel beads in silver and gold were used by some makers in the 1900s. Intricate designs sell for more than plain colors. An ornate frame in gold or silver adds to the value. Prices have dropped during the past few years, however, and most beaded bags sell for less than $100. Older bags in excellent shape and with intricate and colorful patterns of tiny beads attract higher prices.

bottom, it’s marked “827” and “Frie Onnaing, Made in France.” A: Onnaing Pottery was founded in Onnaing, France, in 1821 by Charles de Bousies. During the second half of the 19th century, the Mouzin brothers bought the factory and ran it until the factory closed in 1938. It was nearly destroyed by the Germans during World War I, but production restarted in 1921. The factory made mostly majolica pitchers and planters. Onnaing designs included flowers, geometric patterns and famous historical figures, among others. Each design had a number and a corresponding model name. The number 827 on your bowl refers to a planter named “Mogador.” The marks “Frie Onnaing” and “Made in France” indicate that it was made after World War I. Because it is large, it would sell in a retail shop for about $200.

If molestation suspected, speak up Dear Annie: Last month, I took my grandkids to a water park. While I was watching the crowds, I noticed a man with a boy who looked to be around 12 years old crouched behind a picnic table. They looked as if they were waiting for someone to come by so they could jump up and startle the person. What I found odd was that the man kept pulling the boy into his lap, putting his arms all the way around the boy’s waist. The boy tried to pull away, but the man kept pulling him back. Then, the man leaned forward and gently kissed the boy on the back. The boy bolted. A little later, I saw the man, the boy and a woman in a pool where the boy was floating on an inner tube, and the man had his hand on the boy’s behind. At one point, I saw the woman by herself and asked whether she and

the man were married. She told me they had been married for eight years, so I don’t know whether the man was the boy’s father or not. I told her I had misinterpreted something I saw, but since she was married to the man, I was probably mistaken. I felt like a fool. If she had been dating this guy, I would have told her the whole story. Should I have approached her or just minded my own business? — Plainview, Texas

Olympics Games take final bow Not unlike the Super Bowl, the closing ceremonies of the XXX Summer Olympics (7 p.m., NBC) should offer an enormous audience boost to whatever show follows. You’d think NBC would have something special in mind. Unfortunately, the network is airing a sneak peek of “Animal Practice” (9:30 p.m.), a frantically unfunny new sitcom that reminds us why NBC needs sports spectaculars to attract viewers. ‘‘Animal” sets out to answer the unasked question, “What if Dr. Gregory House practiced veterinary medicine?” Justin Kirk (“Weeds”) stars as Dr. George Coleman, a whiz when it comes to curing critters, but also a cynical, misanthropic womanizer. After twoplus weeks of Olympic uplift, “Animal” kicks off with a cat attempting suicide. A series of sad-single-womanwith-cat sight gags follow, culminating in Coleman’s seduction of the cat’s lonely owner. For a show about a crabby, superior snob, “Animal” tries desperately to be liked. The hospital is really a zoo, where the doctors drink, party and gamble behind closed doors, and Coleman’s capuchin monkey, Dr. Rizzo, is dressed in a lab coat and treated as a hard-partying colleague and equal. Yes, it’s a show with a dressed-up monkey.

“Hell on Wheels” (8 p.m., AMC) returns for a second season. Happily, the post-Civil War railroad drama appears to have picked up the pace. But don’t expect it to abandon its dependence on familiar themes from classic Westerns. The new season begins with a train heist by embittered ex-Confederates and the beating death of a prostitute. Former rebel Cullen Bohannon (Anson Mount) and freed slave Elam Ferguson (Common) enact bookend dramas of personal reinvention and redemption in a world dominated by money, personified by railroad tycoon Doc Durant (Colm Meaney) — often seen trailing clouds of sulfuric smoke, just in case you missed the “Hell” in the show’s title.

Sunday’s other highlights

Increased attacks make for bad politics on “True Blood” (8 p.m., HBO).

Scarcity inspires creative scrounging on “Breaking Bad” (9 p.m., AMC).

Rape suspects become a killer’s targets on the first season finale of “Longmire” (9 p.m., A&E).

Crises rage on a personal and global level on “Political Animals” (9 p.m., USA).

Matt’s weight becomes a concern on “Episodes” (9:30 p.m., Showtime).

Dear Texas: Married or not doesn’t matter. But it is not a simple thing to interpret such actions. The man may have molested the boy previously, which would explain the child’s reaction. But it is also possible that the man was simply trying to show affection to his stepson, and the boy was resisting, as many 12-yearolds would. You were not wrong to speak up, and we would have suggested telling the mother more specifically of your concerns so she could be aware of the situation. If she is upset with you, it is a small price to pay for potentially protecting this boy. Dear Annie: My mother lets the dog lick from our plates and pans. She has no problem with this, but it disgusts me. I realize everything gets washed in hot water af-

The Who, Spice Girls to rock Olympic closer By Jill Lawless Associated Press

LONDON — Get ready for a star-studded spectacular: Olympic Stadium is being transformed into a giant jukebox of British pop and pizzazz for today’s closing ceremonies of the London Games. The Spice Girls and The Who are among the acts prepping performances to celebrate the end of the Olympics. Although organizers have tried to keep the ceremony under wraps, many details have leaked out in the British media — and some of the performers have let the cat out of the bag themselves. Director David Arnold is calling the production “the greatest after-party in the world.” “If the opening ceremony was the wedding, then we’re the wedding reception,” Arnold told the Daily Telegraph. The Who, George Michael, Muse and Ed Sheeran have all said they will take part in a show that will include performances of 30 British hit singles from the past five decades. The Pet Shop Boys, Annie Lennox and Fatboy Slim will also be on hand to get people dancing. Tips and photos have emerged from the rehearsal venue, an old car plant in east London. The Spice Girls were photographed dancing atop black London taxis, so a rendition of their biggest hit, “Wannabe,” seems possible. So does an appearance by surviving members of Queen, whose “We Will Rock You” and “We Are the Champions” have been ever-present at the games. And Ray Davies of The Kinks is tipped to perform his majestic London ballad “Waterloo Sunset.” Paul McCartney has already performed at the opening ceremony, but it’s inconceivable that there won’t be a bit of Beatles music in a tribute to the best of British pop. And organizers will want to include younger acts such as Tinie Tempah, Jessie J, Emeli Sande and the Kaiser Chiefs.

DR. STEPHEN W. HARGARTEN is pictured Aug. 8 at Froedtert & Medical College of Wisconsin in Milwaukee. Hargarten helped many of the victims of Sunday’s shooting at the Sikh Temple of Wisconsin.

NBC to stream ceremony live NEW YORK (AP) — NBC acknowledged some critics Saturday in announcing it changed plans and will stream today’s Olympic closing ceremony live online. Today’s ceremony from London will still air on a tape-delayed basis on NBC in prime time. For the opening ceremony, NBC took some heat for not making the event available to anyone in the United States for hours after the fact. The opening ceremony was watched by 40.7 million people, a bigger audience than for the Grammys and Oscars this year. NBC has since found that streaming live all of the Olympic sports events online has not cut into its prime-time audience, which has been unexpectedly bigger than the 2008 Beijing Games. Organizers have said they want the ceremony to be a “cheeky” reflection of modern Britain, so expect touches of Monty Pythonesque humor — perhaps even Python Eric Idle leading a mass rendition of “Always Look on the Bright Side of Life.” The Daily Mail newspaper published photographs of what it said was the set, involving reconstructions of London landmarks such as St. Paul’s Cathedral and Tower Bridge. The show won’t be short on spectacle. Director Kim Gavin has overseen tours for the band Take That and directed London’s 2007 Princess Diana memorial concert. Designer Es Devlin has created sets for everyone from Lady Gaga to the Royal Opera. As with director Danny Boyle’s opening ceremony, London is aiming for a plucky, irreverent tone far removed from Beijing’s 2008 Olympic closer, which was heavy on precision displays of fireworks, acrobatics and dancing.

Doctors target gun violence as social disease By Marilynn Marchione

What I’m struggling with is, is this the new social norm? This is what we’re going to have MILWAUKEE — Is a gun to live with if we have more personal access like a virus, a car, tobacco or alcohol? Yes say pub- to firearms.” Associated Press

lic health experts, who in the wake of recent mass shootings are calling for a fresh look at gun violence as a social disease. What we need, they say, is a public health approach to the problem, like the highway safety measures, product changes and driving laws that slashed deaths from car crashes decades ago, even as the number of vehicles on the road rose. One example: Guardrails are now curved to the ground instead of having sharp metal ends that stick out and pose a hazard in a crash. “People used to spear themselves, and we blamed the drivers for that,” said Dr. Garen Wintemute, an emergency medicine professor who directs the Violence Prevention Research Program at the University of California, Davis. It wasn’t enough back then to curb deaths just by trying to make people better drivers, and it isn’t enough now to tackle gun violence by focusing solely on the people doing the shooting, he and other doctors say. They want a sciencebased, pragmatic approach based on the reality of a society saturated with guns and seek better ways of preventing harm from them. The need for a new approach crystallized

He found himself treating victims of the Sikh temple shootings at the emergency department he heads in Milwaukee. Seven people were killed, including the gunman, and three were seriously injured. It happened two weeks after the shooting that killed 12 people and injured 58 at a movie theater in Colorado, and two days before a man pleaded guilty to killing six people and wounding 13, including then-Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, in Tucson, Ariz., last year. “What I’m struggling with is, is this the new social norm? This is what we’re going to have to live with if we have more personal access to firearms,” said Hargarten, emergency medicine chief at Froedtert Hospital and director of the Injury Research Center at the Medical College of Wisconsin. “We have a public health issue to discuss. Do we wait for the next outbreak or is there something we can do to prevent it?” About 260 million to 300 million firearms are owned by civilians in the

United States; about onethird of American homes have one. Guns are used in two-thirds of homicides, according to the FBI. About 9 percent of all violent crimes involve a gun — roughly 338,000 cases each year. Mass shootings don’t seem to be on the rise, but not all police agencies report details like the number of victims per shooting and reporting lags by more than a year, so recent trends are not known. “The greater toll is not from these clusters but from endemic violence, the stuff that occurs every day and doesn’t make the headlines,” said Wintemute, the California researcher. More than 73,000 emergency room visits in 2010 were for firearm-related injuries, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates. At the same time, violent crime has been falling, and the murder rate is less than half what it was two decades ago. And Gallup polls have shown support for stricter gun laws has been falling since 1990. Last year 55 percent of Americans said gun laws should remain the same or become more lenient.

Iran earthquakes kill at least 180, injure over 1,300 TEHRAN, IRAN (AP) — Two strong earthquakes leveled villages and damaged homes in northwestern Iran on Saturday, killing at least 180 people and injuring more than 1,350 others, state TV reported. Thousands of people spent the night outdoors as aftershocks rattled the area. The U.S. Geological Survey reported that Satur-

Refinery probe focuses on corrosion SAN FRANCISCO — Federal investigators probing the cause of a massive Chevron oil refinery fire are focusing on possible corrosion in a decades-old pipe the company inspected late last year but did not replace. Investigators with the U.S. Chemical Safety Board told The Associated Press on Saturday that the November inspection led Chevron to replace an old pipe connected to the one that failed Monday. The fire exploded when a vapor cloud ignited, endangering more than a dozen workers in the immediate vicinity. The resulting blaze sent up thick, black smoke and caused thousands to seek medical attention for related health issues in one of the most serious U.S. refinery fires in recent years. The Richmond refinery, located about 10 miles northeast of San Francisco, produces about 16 percent of California’s daily gasoline supply.

day’s first quake at 4:53 p.m. had a magnitude of 6.4 and struck 37 miles northeast of the city of Tabriz at a depth of 6.2 miles. Its epicenter was a region between the towns of Ahar and Haris, about 200 miles northwest of the capital Tehran, according to Khalil Saei, local Crisis Committee chief, the TV report said. The second quake with

a magnitude of 6.3 struck 11 minutes later, the USGS reported. Its epicenter was 29 miles northeast of Tabriz at a depth of 6.1 miles. The quakes hit the towns of Ahar, Haris and Varzaqan in East Azerbaijan province, the TV report said. At least six villages were totally leveled, and 60 others sustained damage ranging from 50 to 80 percent, it said.

At least 10 aftershocks jolted the same area and were felt in a wide region near the Caspian Sea, causing panic among the population. Saei urged people in the quake region to stay outdoors and spend the night at parks and open spaces in anticipation of more aftershocks. Authorities feared the death toll could

rise as rescuers were still trying to reach people trapped under rubble and had not yet reacher some more remote villages. Iran is located on seismic fault lines and is prone to earthquakes. It experiences at least one earthquake every day on average, although the vast majority are so small they go unnoticed.
