DR. MALATI HARRIS WORKS OUT AT UNDERGROUND LAB FITNESS as part of her routine that has helped her lose about 150 pounds. Harris was hospitalized in 2007 when she weighed 330 pounds, and after that incident, she found the motivation to diet and exercise to lose the weight. See the video at WellCommons.com.

Doctor finds drive to lose about 150 pounds after health scare By Karrey Britt kbritt@ljworld.com

During a recent lunch hour, Dr. Malati Harris worked out at a Lawrence fitness center with her trainer. In 30 minutes, she worked up a sweat by climbing a ladder machine, lifting weights, doing pushups, pulling on heavy ropes and pushing weights across the room. “She’s in incredible shape,” said Fernando Rodriguez, her trainer at UnderGround Lab Fitness. “She’s self-motivated, and she’s a real competitor with herself.” Harris, 38, of Lawrence Family Medicine & Obstetrics, said that motivation comes from knowing where she was nearly five years ago when she weighed 330 pounds. !"!"!

Harris, who grew up in the suburbs of Chicago, said she wasn’t overweight as a child or teenager. Her weight gain began a year before she attended medical

school when she worked at a restaurant and did some substitute teaching. She said she didn’t exercise and ate fast food for breakfast, lunch and dinner. “I gained 80 pounds in a year, and it was ridiculous, and then I just never lost the weight at all,” she said. Harris, who’s 5 feet 11 inches tall, weighed about 250 pounds through medical school at the University of Illinois-Chicago. She remembers visiting shelters and talking to the homeless about proper nutrition when she was a student. “One of the guys was like, ‘You should practice what you preach,’ and I’m like, ‘Oh, are you talking about me?’” she said. When she became engaged, she joined Weight Watchers and lost about 60 pounds for her wedding day, but soon started regaining the weight. The gain accelerated when she became pregnant with her first child.

She gained 66 pounds, she said, and while some of it was fluid, most of it was from eating double cheeseburgers. She didn’t lose any of the weight after the birth of her son, Mateo, eight years ago. Four years later, when she became pregnant with her second child, she weighed 285 pounds. She feared gaining a lot of weight during the pregnancy, and her fears became a reality. When she gave birth to her daughter, Liliana, she tipped the scales at 330 pounds. One week later, she was admitted to the hospital because she was having trouble breathing and her blood pressure was off the charts. At first, doctors thought she had heart failure, but they soon found out she had fluid on her lungs. She had severe pre-eclampsia after giving birth, which is rare. The unexpected hospitalization in November 2007 became her turning point. “That was when I was like, Please see WEIGHT, page 5A

Federal prosecutors are asking for a court order to seize and sell three parcels of Douglas County property with ties to two Lawrence residents indicted in a major drug-trafficking case. According to court records, U.S. Attorney Barry Grissom’s office alleges the properties — including a large house under construction west of Lawrence — owned by Chad Bauman, 33, and Carey Willming, 36, were derived from proceeds from drug sales or intended to be used to facilitate commission of the crimes. Prosecutors also allege the properties were part of alleged money laundering defendants used to hide drug proceeds. Thirty-five defendants, including Bauman, Willming and nine other Lawrence residents, are accused of working to distribute a mixture containing cocaine and more than 1,000 kilograms of marijuana from 2005 to June of this year. Many of the defendants in the case are from Douglas and Johnson counties. Prosecutors are seeking a $16.9 million judgment in the case. They allege Bauman and fellow Lawrence resident Los Rovell Dahda, 30, made millions of dollars as leaders of the drug ring. Federal prosecutors have focused mainly on seizing a home under construction at 1605 E. 550 Road, described in court records as a “large estate residence that defendants Bauman and Willming are building.” Please see DRUG, page 2A

DEATHS MARTHA F. GARCIA

ALAN RANDOLPH HAWKINS A Celebration of Life for Alan Randolph Hawkins will be at 2:30 p.m., Sunday, September 9, 2012 in Swarthout Recital Hall, located in Murphy Hall on the campus of the University of Kansas, Lawrence. He was cremated and his request was to have his ashes spread across the Flint Hills of central Kansas. Dr. Hawkins, 74, passed away July 21, 2012 at his Lawrence home with hospice care provided by the Douglas County Visiting Nurses Association. He died from the combined effects of vascular dementia and Alzheimer’s disease. Alan was born on March 10, 1938 in Great Bend, KS the son of O. Floyd and Ruth (Wilbanks) Hawkins. Alan’s father was an accountant for various oil companies and his mother was a registered nurse. They preceded him in death. He married Nancy Rutherford on July 26, 1979 in Danforth Chapel on the KU campus in Lawrence. She survives of the home with their beloved dog, Gus. Dr. Hawkins was professor emeritus of bassoon and music theory at KU, where he taught from 1975 until his retirement in 2004. Alan was succeeded at KU by his former student, Dr. Eric Stomberg. Alan also taught bassoon and music theory at West Texas State University from 1968 to 1975. Alan played under the baton of Robert Shaw in the Atlanta Symphony between 1964 and 1968. During that turbulent time in U.S. history, he taught in the rural schools around Atlanta and witnessed several burning crosses in various locations on his way home during the nights. Alan grew up in Wichita, KS and attended Wichita East High School where he sang in their stateranked choir. He played saxophone in a locally famous mariachi band and was an enthusiastic rider of British motorcycles, much to his RN mother’s chagrin. After high school, he spent one year working at Boeing Aircraft as a draftsman assistant. But the call of music was too strong and Alan enrolled at Kansas State Teachers College to earn a Bachelor of Music Education degree. He started playing clarinet in the orchestra and noticed the girl playing the bassoon was struggling with her part, so he thought, “how hard can it be?” He asked his clarinet professor, Leopold Liegl, if he could switch to bassoon and the rest is history. Alan then followed his love of music theory and composition to the University of Texas at Austin where he studied with Kent Kennan, with whom he was having lunch when they heard the tragic news about the Kennedy assassination in Dallas. He received his

Master of Music Theory degree in 1964. During his tenure at WTSU, Alan started his Doctorate in Musical Arts in Bassoon Performance with L. Hugh Cooper at the University of Michigan. He spent his summers in Michigan as a part-time employee of the Interlochen Summer Arts Camp where it was his duty to drive around a 50mile radius of Interlochen in his 1960 Karmann Ghia convertible and post their performance schedules. Alan also was an usher for Interlochen’s concerts and remembered ushering German-born rocket scientist, Wernher von Braun, to his seat. Eventually, Alan was awarded his DMA degree in 1975. Alan will be best remembered for his double reed publishing company, Bocal Music, that he established in 1988, thanks to the development of music notation software for his favorite Macintosh computer. His family remembers him from the age of seven pushing a pencil around on music staff paper, then an ink pen, followed by the clacking of a musical typewriter as technology advanced. Alan not only published his own compositions, but also hundreds of arrangements for solo instruments and ensembles. Today, Bocal Music is known throughout the world and will help continue Alan’s legacy to music. Alan was preceded in death by a sister, Bettie Hawkins Powell, San Antonio, Texas; a brother, Rev. Hal W. Hawkins, Wichita; and brother-inlaw, Jess Powell, Jr., San Antonio. Survivors include sister-in-law, Wilda Hawkins, Wichita, and brother-in-law, M. Allen Rutherford, Lawrence; nieces, Kim Rutherford Augusto (John), Lawrence; R. Suzanne Powell, San Antonio; Mark Powell, San Antonio; Jess Powell, III, Port Aransas, Texas; Darlene Hawkins (Juan), Wichita; Debbie Jane Hawkins Neal, Honolulu; and numerous cousins, grandnieces and grandnephews. The family will greet friends and colleagues at a reception outside Swarthout Recital Hall following the celebration. Alan’s family requests that in lieu of flowers, donations be sent to the KU Endowment Association to benefit the Alan R. Hawkins Bassoon Scholarship Fund, c/o KU Endowment Association, P.O. Box 928, Lawrence, KS 66044. Please sign this guestbook at Obituaries. LJWorld.com.

Hallmark lawsuit ruling reversed By George Diepenbrock gdiepenbrock@ljworld.com

A Kansas Court of Appeals panel on Friday reversed a ruling by a Douglas County judge and found that a former employee’s claims in a lawsuit against Hallmark Cards Inc. were subject to arbitration. The appellate court made the ruling and ordered the case back to District Judge Michael Malone with instructions to stay further proceedings in the lawsuit and to compel further arbitration in the dispute. According to the opinion, Jana Hague sued her employer, Hallmark, which operates a production plant in Lawrence, for breach of contract and for unpaid wages. She began suffering health problems in 2008 and took a leave of absence. Hallmark initially approved her application for short-term disability benefits but, after further review, denied the benefits. When she did not return to work, she was fired. Court of Appeals Judge Steve Leben wrote the legal issues of the lawsuit relate to whether it would be proper for an arbitrator or a judge to determine the merits of her claims. Hague’s attorneys argued she should have received further short-term disability benefits and that a court should award her back benefits, plus interest, penalties and attorneys fees. Hallmark had asked Malone to put the lawsuit on hold while the parties arbitrated the dispute because the company said her claims were subject to mandatory arbitration under Hallmark’s dispute-resolution program. Malone agreed with Hague’s attorneys that the company’s dispute-resolution program did not require her to arbitrate her claims. “But what Hague has filed in court is a lawsuit, not an objection to Hallmark policies, and her agreement with Hallmark requires that legal claims be arbitrated,” Leben wrote in Friday’s opinion.

According to a complaint in the case, a federal drug task force joined with the Internal Revenue Service in 2011 to investigate the finances of Bauman, who owned a carpet cleaning business in rural Lawrence, Dahda and others associated with them. The investigation included federal wire taps. Both Bauman, who remains in custody in the case, and Willming have pleaded not guilty, as have all co-defendants. Thomas G. Lemon, an attorney for Willming, has objected to the government’s request, saying Willming has not been convicted of any crime that would lead to a seizure and sale of the property. He said in his motion it was “believed that the residence and property may be worth in excess of $1 million.” Willming’s defense attorney also said the property could be secured from the elements and argued the expense of keeping the property is “not excessive” while the matter is being resolved. A judge has not yet ruled on the issue. A trial in the drug case will not occur before next

Group raises questions on candidate’s home WICHITA (AP) — An advocacy group has raised questions about the tax-exempt house in Wichita where a Republican candidate for the state Senate lives. The Freedom From Religion Foundation, a Madison, Wis.,-based group that promotes the separation of church and state, has asked the Sedgwick County appraiser’s office to investigate the tax-exempt status of the house where Michael O’Donnell lives. O’Donnell, who is also a member of the Wichita City Council, faces Democrat Timothy Snow and Libertarian Dave Thomas in the November election. O’Donnell lives in the former parsonage for Grace Baptist Church, where his father is pastor. He said he was first offered the house in exchange for his work as the church’s janitor, which ended in late 2008 or 2009. Since then, he has been paying rent. The house was appraised at $76,100 this year, and county records show no general property taxes have been billed since at least 2002, The Wichita Eagle reported.

Boy ready for next summer after heat cuts mowing season short By Shaun Hittle sdhittle@ljworld.com

QUINTON WESTPHAL, 11, PUTS AWAY HIS NEW LAWN MOWER at his east Lawrence home. Quinton had saved up to buy a mower, but it was stolen a day after he purchased it. Lawrence cardiologist Roger Dreiling bought Quinton a replacement mower after learning of the theft.

The dry, warm weather hampered 11-year-old Quinton Westphal’s lawn mowing business this summer. “It was so hot,” said Quinton, with a shrug of the shoulders and a “what can you do?” expression. But it wasn’t enough to dampen the young entrepreneur’s spirit, as Quinton said he made the best of it, pointing to several yards he mowed in his east Lawrence neighborhood. The $120 or so that he earned this summer was

a little less than he’d expected, however. That Mother Nature can cut into a bottom line was the second business lesson Quinton had to learn the hard way this year. Quinton spent a year saving $250 for a new lawn mower to start his lawn mowing business by collecting cans, selling homemade duct-tape wallets and socking away his birthday money. Last May, just a couple of days after Quinton and his dad, Schuyler, bought a new mower, it was stolen from the family’s backyard. Quinton

thought his dream of his own mowing business had rolled away with the mower. But minutes after a Journal-World story went online detailing the theft, calls and emails started coming in, with a slew of good Samaritans offering to buy Quinton a new mower. Lawrence cardiologist Roger Dreiling, who operated a lawn mowing business in his youth, was the first to contact the family and bought Quinton a new mower. Quinton showed off the new mower, which he said

works great and is actually a more expensive model than the one that was stolen. And like many small businesses that have been negatively affected by this summer’s weather, Quinton is already looking forward and planning for next year. He’s been working on early designs for a flier he’ll pass out this fall, hoping to get the jump on the competition come next year. — Reporter Shaun Hittle can be reached at 832-7173.

A look at first-year seminar courses Freshmen at Kansas University had the option of enrolling in one of 11 first-year seminar courses for the first time this year. The courses were designed to feature faculty members teaching on interesting topics that align with their research fields. Undecided majors were particularly advised to consider taking one of the courses. They will focus on critical thinking and writing skills, and are designed to introduce students to the basics of intellectual inquiry. The three-credit hour courses also fill a general education requirement for the students. The course offerings this semester include: ! Biology 177. “Why do the birds and bees do it?” Taught by Jennifer Gleason, associate professor of ecology and evolutionary biology. !

The classes are small — limited to just 19 students — and taught by faculty members who have done research in the field. Andrea Greenhoot, an associate professor of psychology, served on a committee that helped form the new classes. The courses are supposed to focus on engaging topics. “Why do the birds and the bees do it?” is one, focusing on sexual selection in biology. The classes are offered for three credit hours and fill general education requirements. “We’re trying to introduce students to the excitement of intellectual discovery and the culture of scholarly inquiry,” Crawford-Parker said, something that often officials warnings when doesn’t come until far lat- a student exhibits trouer in a student’s education bling behavior, such as getting below 65 percent at KU.

“A lot of sites can have more volunteers than expected, and most volunteer opportunities are inside or are adjusted to be inside instead,” CCO Managing Director Nikki Boggess said. Wenderott estimated more than 300 students volunteered through the program as individuals as well as for a group, such as a fraternity or scholarship hall. Volunteers received a free T-shirt and pizza, and had the opportunity to learn more about CCO and different volunteer programs.

Armstrong, 1st man on moon, remembered as ‘ultimate hero’ By Lisa Cornwell and Seth Borenstein Associated Press

CINCINNATI — Neil Armstrong was a soft-spoken engineer who became a global hero when as a steely-nerved pilot he made “one giant leap for mankind” with a small step onto the moon. The modest man, who had people on Earth entranced and awed from almost a quarter-million miles away, but credited others for the feat, died Saturday. He was 82. Armstrong died following complications resulting from cardiovascular procedures, his family said in a statement. Armstrong had a bypass operation this month, according to NASA. His family didn’t say where he died; he had lived in suburban Cincinnati. Armstrong commanded the Apollo 11 spacecraft that landed on the moon July 20, 1969, capping the most daring of the 20th century’s scientific expeditions. His first words after becoming the first person to set foot on the surface are etched in history books and the memories of those who heard them in a live broadcast. “That’s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind,” Armstrong said. (Armstrong insisted later that he had said “a’’ before man, but said he, too, couldn’t hear it in the version that went to the world.) In those first few moments on the moon, during the climax of a heated space race with the Soviet Union, Armstrong stopped in what he called “a tender moment” and left a patch to commemorate NASA astronauts and Soviet cosmonauts who had died in action. “It was special and memorable, but it was only instantaneous because there was work to do,” Armstrong told an Australian television interviewer this year. Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin spent nearly three hours walking on the lunar surface, collecting samples, conducting experiments and taking photographs. “The sights were simply magnificent, beyond any visual experience that I had ever been exposed to,” Armstrong once said. The moon walk marked America’s victory in the Cold War space race that began Oct. 4, 1957, with the launch of the Soviet Union’s Sputnik 1, a 184-pound satellite that sent shock waves around the world.

NEIL ARMSTRONG, pictured in this July 20, 1969, file photo provided by NASA, died at age 82 on Saturday. Armstrong commanded the Apollo 11 spacecraft that landed on the moon July 20, 1969. He radioed back to Earth the historic news of “one giant leap for mankind.” BELOW, Apollo 11 astronauts Armstrong and Edwin E. “Buzz” Aldrin, the first men to land on the moon, plant the U.S. flag on the lunar surface on July 20, 1969.

Armstrong, pictured on June 1, 2012, in Dayton, Ohio

Although he had been a Navy fighter pilot, a test pilot for NASA’s forerunner and an astronaut, Armstrong never allowed himself to be caught up in the celebrity and glamour of the space program. “I am, and ever will be, a white socks, pocket protector, nerdy engineer,” he said in 2000 in one of his rare public appearances. “And I take a substantial amount of pride in the accomplishments of my profession.” Rice University historian Douglas Brinkley, who interviewed Armstrong for oral histories for NASA, said Armstrong fit every requirement the space agency needed for the first man to walk on moon, especially because of his engineering skills

and the way he handled celebrity by shunning it. “I think his genius was in his reclusiveness,” Brinkley said. “He was the ultimate hero in an era of corruptible men.” Fellow Ohioan and astronaut John Glenn, one of Armstrong’s closest friends, recalled Saturday how Armstrong was down to the last 15 seconds to 35 seconds of fuel when he finally brought the lunar module Eagle down on the Sea of Tranquility. “That showed a dedication to what he was doing that was admirable,” Glenn said. A man who kept away from cameras, Armstrong went public in 2010 with his concerns about President Barack Obama’s space policy that shifted attention away from a return to the moon and emphasized private companies developing spaceships. He testified before Congress, and in an email to The Associated Press, Armstrong said he had “substantial reservations,” and along with more than two dozen Apollo-era veterans, he signed a letter calling the plan a “misguided proposal that forces NASA out of human space operations for the foreseeable future.”

‘Well, I won’t bother him.’ But he looked up and he saw me, and he said, ‘Hi, Steve,’ and waved to me. I looked back and said, ‘Hi, Neil.’ He didn’t have to do that, but that’s the kind of guy he was.” Hawley said Armstrong was the kind of person who realized the moon landing wasn’t his achievement, but the achievement of the tens of thousands of other people who labored on the project — that he was a mem-

ber of the team, not an individual. “That was always something I looked for when we hired new astronauts,” Hawley said. Hawley said Armstrong had, in part, inspired him to work at NASA but might have inspired him more on what he did after retirement. “He left and went back to his alma mater and taught,” Hawley said. “I said, ‘When I retire, I want to do that.’”

shot seven times, and Officer Robert Sinishtaj fired nine times, police said. Neither had ever fired their weapons before on a patrol. The volley of gunfire felled Johnson in just a few seconds and left nine other people bleeding on the sidewalk. In the initial chaos Friday, it wasn’t clear whether Johnson or the officers were responsible for the trail of the wounded, but based on ballistic and other evidence, “it appears that all nine of the victims were struck either by fragments or by bullets fired by po-

lice,” Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly told reporters Saturday at a community event in Harlem. Police officials have said the officers appeared to have no choice but to shoot Johnson, whose body had 10 bullet wounds in the chest, arms and legs. The officers confronted Johnson as he walked, casually, down the street after gunning down a former co-worker on the sidewalk outside the office they once shared. The shooting happened at 9 a.m., as the neighborhood bustled with people arriving for work.

Preservation games It’s hard to see how the Varsity House can be reassembled in a manner that even resembles its original site and condition.

W

ho’s kidding whom? A large apartment building is under construction at the northwest corner of 11th and Indiana streets. No doubt it will be a fine addition to the housing market, and, because of its location, it will be particularly attractive to Kansas University students. There usually are numerous hurdles in Lawrence for any major development to overcome before getting the necessary approvals and for construction to begin. One obstacle or hurdle in this project was an early 1900s house located on the site. The house is known as “Varsity House” because it once served as a boarding house, with a large kitchen and dining area, for members of the KU football team. Its true “historic” value can be debated but, in Lawrence, if someone or some group is committed to making “historic” an issue concerning a building or neighborhood, it becomes a high hurdle. Those proposing the apartments initially gave differing views on the size and location of the project and how the Varsity House could be protected and preserved. It was decided that the structure would be moved to accommodate the apartment complex, but local preservationists were surprised when the developer decided to disassemble the structure and place its pieces in storage, saying it would be reassembled at the site, supposedly looking the same and maintaining its original appearance. The only trouble, based on a pass-by look at the site, is that the only possible location for Varsity House will be on top of a concrete pad, probably surrounded by some fake green grass and probably not looking anything like the treasured and special original structure. It will have to be jammed into a small space next to the modern apartment complex. The outside shell of the building may retain its original appearance but the lowerlevel kitchen and dining area obviously will have to be eliminated or relocated, and there is no way the builder or architect will be able to duplicate the special ambiance, feeling, smell and atmosphere of the original structure where football players lived, relaxed and shared meals. It will be interesting to remember the developer’s pledge and see how the rebuilt Varsity House will fit in with its large modern housing cousin.

From the Lawrence Daily Journal-World for Aug. 26, 1912: “There was a runaway on Massachusetts street last night, but YEARS who was in it and where it started AGO are a mystery. The runaway ocIN 1912 curred about 8:30 when there were few people on the street and none of the onlookers seem to know just how it happened. It seems that there were a man and two children in the buggy when the runaway occurred. The horse ran south through almost the entire business section of Massachusetts street, and narrowly escaped colliding with other vehicles or overturning the buggy several times. The man kept his head and guided the horse until it was finally stopped near the court house.” — Compiled by Sarah St. John

Recognizing roadblocks to progress By Ellen Goodman

BOSTON — So, dear friends, we gather again to celebrate Aug. 26, the anniversary of the passage of women’s suffrage. We honor our foremothers in our special way by handing out the Equal Rites Awards for those who have done the most to slow down progress. This year, the holiday falls all too appropriately between the end of the Olympics and the beginning of the political conventions. Need we remind you that women have achieved greater success in the sports meritocracy than in the political democracy? Forty years after Title IX, women outnumbered men on the U.S. Olympic team and in the gold medals. Ninety-two years after the 19th Amendment, women occupy only 17 percent of the seats in Congress and have never made it to the White House. But now for our own gold medals, may we have: The envelopes please! We begin by awarding the Double Standard Bearer Prize to — ta-da! — Rush Limbaugh. Our lifetime achievement awardee attacked Georgetown law student Sandra Fluke as a “slut” and a “prostitute” because she testified before Congress in favor of having contraception covered by health insurance. For saying that Fluke should repay the taxpayers with personal sex videos, we give Rush a special Groupon to be used at the Testosterone Poison Control Center. In the same toxic vein, the Male-Practice Award does not go to a doctor this year but to Republican bankroller Foster Goodman Friess. This super PACman had his own reason to avoid covering birth control: “Back in my days, they used Bayer aspirin for contraceptives; the gals put it between their knees and it wasn’t that costly.” We send Friess a case of aspirin, a Hypocritic Oath, and a one-way ticket back to “his days.” Now for his pal Rick Santorum. Our boy Rick lost the presidential battle but won the Battle of the Sexes Badge for a pink panic attack. At a bowling campaign event in Wisconsin, Rick stopped a boy from picking up a pink ball, saying “You’re not going to use that pink ball. ... Not on camera. ... Friends don’t let friends use pink balls.” In the pink and blue world of boys and grrrls, he is already behind our 8-ball. Ah yes, but what about virtual gamesman-ship? The annual Booby Prize for Online Sports goes to video game coach Aris Bakhtanians, who trash-talked player Miranda Pakozdi in the “Cross Assault” video game tournament, quizzing her on camera about her bra size and telling her to take off her shirt. For video harassment, we promise to crash his private hard drive. Now on to the Backward Trailblazer Award. We censure the Census Bureau for its retro view of kiddie care. When mom does it, according to the bureau, it’s parenting. When dad does it, it’s child care. For sticking to the old script, we give the number crunchers an apron

emblazoned: Dad is not a baby sitter! Let us swing overseas for our (Half-) Blind Justice Award. It is won this year, as so often before, by Afghanistan. There, the good news is that the government finally pardoned a woman named Gulnaz imprisoned for adultery after being raped. The bad news is that Afghan Justice Minister Habibullah Ghaleb claimed that shelters for victims of domestic violence were encouraging immorality and prostitution. A one-eyed burqa for these boys. The Dubious Equality Award goes annually to the most unwelcome evidence of a sexual parity. This year it is being delivered to Saudi Arabia. Women in the kingdom still cannot drive, can only run in the Olympics covered from head to toe, BUT ... men like Muree bin Ali bin Issa al-Asiri can be equally executed for witchcraft and adultery! Home again, where the war on women thrives. Here, the Taliban Poster Boy Prize goes to Jay Townsend, a now-former campaign adviser to Republican Rep. Nan Hayworth of New York who suggested on Facebook how to deal with women lawmakers who promoted the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay bill — “Let’s hurl some acid at those female Democratic senators.” He has already received our award for him: a pink slip. Alas, this war also has its intra-gender battalions. The Mommy Wars Re-Ignition Prize goes with regret to Hilary Rosen for the sound bite that came back to bite her. She said mom-of-five Ann Romney “never worked a day in her life.” A hair shirt emblazoned with “Every mom is a working mom” has already been FedExed her way. As for the Romneys, our gal Ann worked not only as a mom but, we now know, also as an anthropologist studying the life of a remote tribe for her hubby. Employer Mitt gets the Patriarch of the Year Award for whining that he does-so understand women because Ann “reports to me” on what they think. To Mitt, a pill for tone-deafness. Can we top that? Yesss!! The Media Ms-take Citation goes to Time maga-

zine’s cover photo featuring a 3-yearold boy being breast-fed by his buff mom next to the line: “Are You Mom Enough?” For promoting competitive mom-ery via mammary, we write the editors a prescription to Mom Up. Just don’t try to fill this Rx in Texas. The Over the Counter Sexism Award for retailing stereotypes goes to the CVS pharmacists in Mesquite, Texas, who illegally refused to sell emergency contraception, aka Plan B, to a man. After all, they hinted to this husband, he might be a rapist. We offer these pharmacists Plan D for discrimination. From pharmacy to cosmetology, we are pleased to give the Ms-Adventures in Advertising Award to yet another makeup artist. This year, giants Cover Girl and L’Oreal took a photoshop-op to alter the eyelashes of Taylor Swift and the skin of Julia Roberts. For their attempt to sell makeup through selfhate, we send them a pre-made PSA announcement: Even Taylor Swift doesn’t have eyelashes like Taylor Swift. Let us not forgot the Raging Hormonal Imbalance Prize. This was won, hands down, by Missouri Republican Senate candidate Todd Akin. While serving an overdose of tea party politics, he justified his opposition to abortion for rape victims by explaining, “If it’s a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down.” To offset his Boy-ology 101 lesson, Todd gets a two-week vacation from campaigning in a local rape crisis center. Finally, we are in debt (literally) to China for the Masters of the Universe Citation. This goes to the Mandarins who are updating the concubine for the modern era. It turns out that the Chinese Masters’ latest perk is a mistress. “Keeping a mistress is just like playing golf,” said one such Master. “Both are expensive hobbies.” As we close this awards season, at least we can get teed off. Our motto for next year: FORE! — Ellen Goodman is a former columnist for Washington Post Writers Group.

Ryan adds ideology to GOP team WASHINGTON — Conventions are the seventh-inning stretches of presidential politics, a pause to consider the interminable prelude and the coming climax. Republicans gathering in Tampa face an unusual election in which they do not have a substantial advantage concerning the most presidential subject: foreign policy. This is not because their nominee has weak foreignpolicy credentials, which are not weaker than Barack Obama’s were four years ago. And it is not because some of Mitt Romney’s policy expostulations during the nominating process — e.g., “We should not negotiate with the Taliban. We should defeat the Taliban” — promise a limitless elongation of an 11-year exercise in mission creep that the public is sensibly eager to liquidate. And it is not because there are no ominous potentialities: Both Romney and Obama seem committed to a third regional war if, as is highly probable, Iran continues to pursue nuclear weapons. (Israel could make foreign policy central in the U.S. campaign by striking Iran.) And it is not because the world has become tranquil — although the world, which Romney calls “dangerous, destructive, chaotic,” is less so than at any time since the 1920s, measured by the likelihood of people dying from organized violence. Rather, the eclipse of foreign policy is a result of this

George Will

One peculiarity of this political season’s first seven innings was the selection of a fundamentally non-ideological presidential nominee by a Republican Party…” perverse Obama accomplishment: He has proved that the locution “growth recession” is not oxymoronic. During this recovery, now in its fourth year, the economy often has grown so slowly that job creation rarely, and then barely, matched the growth of the workforce. Perhaps Romney should rejoice that economic anxieties have marginalized foreign policy: The last time a businessman was nominated in a period of national security tensions — Republican Wendell Willkie in 1940 — he lost. There have been 11 elections since two Democratic presidents committed the United States to a protracted war of attrition in Indochina — John Kennedy by complicity in

regime-change by coup; Lyndon Johnson by incontinent escalation. In those 11 elections, the Democratic Party, wounded by its riotous 1968 convention and its 1972 nomination of George McGovern, has elected just three presidents. Jimmy Carter won after Vietnam was lost. Bill Clinton won after the Cold War was won. Barack Obama won after the nation had recoiled against foreign overreaching: Iraq. The eclipse of foreign policy underscores the rationality of Romney’s selection of Paul Ryan. The youngest vice presidential nominee since Dan Quayle in 1988, Ryan guarantees that the Republican message — certainly subliminally, perhaps explicitly — will be Obama’s immaturity, which is writ large in the childishness of his characteristic rhetorical evasion: Every difficult choice is, he says, “a false choice.” One peculiarity of this political season’s first seven innings was the selection of a fundamentally non-ideological presidential nominee by a Republican Party that, under the beneficent influence of the tea party, has never been more ideological or more ideologically homogenous. The Ryan selection ameliorates this incongruity. The incongruity, however, explains why Romney may be able to win with a Big Ten strategy. Until last year, when Nebraska joined this athletic conference, it extended from

State College, Pa., to Iowa City, Iowa. Romney enters the final innings competitive in those two states, as well as Ohio, Michigan and Wisconsin, which means he is poised to correct a Republican problem: The party has been too dependent on the South, understood as the 11 states of the Confederacy, plus Oklahoma and Kentucky. In the last five presidential elections, Republican candidates have received an average of 64 percent of their electoral votes from the South. In 2000, George W. Bush became the first Republican to win the presidency while losing the electoral and popular votes outside the South. The party’s Southern cast was one reason John McCain in 2008 did not carry any suburb contiguous to Boston, New York, Philadelphia, Detroit or Chicago. Such places are habitats of persons who by now may be lightly attached Obama voters — people who like the idea of him but not the results of him. As Holman W. Jenkins of The Wall Street Journal astutely writes, “Obama’s great political talent has been his knack for granting his admirers permission to think highly of themselves for thinking highly of him.” Romney’s great political challenge is to wean them away by making them faintly embarrassed about their former infatuation. — George Will is a columnist for Washington Post Writers Group.

KANSAS FOOTBALL

Tom Keegan tkeegan@ljworld.com

Angel trends upward In the wake of a rain-free Bonnie Henrickson golf tournament Saturday at Alvamar, each member of the women’s basketball team took a turn at the microphone and shared her favorite thing about the NCAA Tournament in which the Jayhawks advanced to the Sweet 16. “Trending on Twitter,” senior Angel Goodrich said. Last March 20, for much of the second half of Kansas University’s upset victory against Delaware, #Angel Goodrich was one of the top 10 topics in the world being discussed on Twitter. The pregame TV hype centered on the nation’s leading scorer, Delaware’s Elena Delle Donne. Say that 10 times and your tongue will become as tripped up as the feet of the Blue Hens’ defenders who tried to keep up with Goodrich. On that night, the nation’s leader in assists (7.4 per game) stole the show from the leading scorer, despite at 5-foot-4 standing 13 inches shorter. Goodrich had 27 points and six assists. Without leading scorer Carolyn Davis (ACL surgery), Goodrich led the Jayhawks, a bubble team on Selection Monday, into the Sweet 16. Not bad for a guard who has played most of her home games in front of small crowds. Maybe the global fame the magician of a point guard received will make people realize the live entertainment she provides in Allen Fieldhouse beats anything anybody could see on television. Last season, the team endured a number of setbacks, from Keena Mays quitting to Monica Engelman slumping to team unity wobbling to Davis suffering a seasonending knee injury. The NCAA Tournament made all that seem like a distant memory. “Once we came back from the Sweet 16, we went on Mass. Street, and everybody was celebrating the guys’ stuff, but people would stop us and say, ‘We saw you play. We were watching you guys.’ And it was students,” Goodrich said. “It was amazing because we never really saw students at our games. But they told us they saw us (on TV in the tournament) and said they were going to start coming to our games.” Targeting the marketing of the women’s basketball team to freshmen would be a smart play. Visits to dorms, sororities and fraternities from members of the coaching staff emphasizing that only the students can really change the culture of the program might help. In Goodrich, KU has an unusual player to market. Her eyes-on-fire intensity, phenomenal court vision and remarkable passing, mixed with stop-and-pop jumpers and clutch threes make her as entertaining as any player in women’s college basketball. “For us to not pick up where we left off would be very disappointing for me,” Goodrich said. “I really have high expectations for this team. The chemistry’s great, and I feel like we can start off strong.”

SENIOR TOBEN OPURUM (35) RUNS THROUGH A DRILL during a preseason practice at the KU practice fields.

Versatile Opurum settling in By Matt Tait mtait@ljworld.com

From promising running back to adaptable defensive end and several stops in between, Kansas University senior Toben Opurum has done plenty during his first three years in a KU uniform. But as the co-captain prepares for his final season with the Jayhawks, the one thing many fans are dying to know is exactly what position Opurum will play. “That’s a good question,” Opurum said. Fortunately, there’s an answer, and KU coach Charlie Weis and defensive coordinator Dave Campo believe Opurum’s versatility will make

the Jayhawks a better football team this fall. “You have a strong-side end and a weak-side end, and Toben is a rush end (weakside),” Weis said. “But if you teams try to mismatch you and get bigger on you, then Toben would slide out to (Sam) linebacker, and we’d put another defensive end on the field so you didn’t have a position where a 245-pound guy was your defensive end and 300-pound tackles were

blocking him, and they’re running at you on every play. ... If you’re small, that’s what teams could do. They’d just line up and bring up the big boys and just pound away. So you need to have a plan in place in case they decide to do that.” That plan, though not necessarily centered around Opurum, would not be easy to execute if not for Opurum’s intelligence, Campo said. While some teams are forced to shuffle new personnel on and off the field to adjust to changing offenses, the Jayhawks at times will simply be able to ask Opurum to step up or drop back on the fly. “More than my mind, I have Please see OPURUM, page 6B

BOSTON (AP) — Tony Abreu singled home the goahead run in the 12th inning, and the Kansas City Royals completed their comeback from a six-run deficit by beating the Boston Red Sox, 10-9, on Saturday night. Just a few hours after Boston traded scheduled starter Josh Beckett to the Dodgers along with Adrian Gonzalez, Carl Crawford and Nick Punto, the Royals scored three runs before substitute starter Aaron Cook got a single out. The Red Sox took a 9-3 lead after four innings lead thanks to four hits from Gonzalez’s replacement, Mauro Gomez, including his first major-league homer. The Royals made it 9-all with six runs in the seventh — all of them with two outs, including a game-tying, tworun triple by Mike Moustakas that was his first hit in 19 at-bats. Francisley Bueno (1-0) earned his first major-league win after coming in with runners on first and third and one out in the 10th and pitching out of trouble. Greg Holland pitched the 12th for his seventh save. Junichi Tazawa (0-1) took the loss. Alex Gordon drove in four runs and Billy Butler had three hits for the Royals, who had lost three of their previous four games. Mike Aviles hit a three-run homer for Boston, which had a season-high 20 hits on the Please see ROYALS, page 3B

KANSAS WOMEN’S BASKETBALL COACH BONNIE HENRICKSON, LEFT, HANGS OUT with members of her team around a Jayhawk-themed golf cart before the start of the eighth-annual Bonnie Henrickson Golf Tournament on Saturday at Alvamar.

Kansas University senior basketball forward Carolyn Davis has entered the final stages of rehab from ACL surgery on her left knee. “It’s great. I’m about a month away from being fully released,” the 6-foot-3 Houston native reported Saturday from the eighth-annual Bonnie Henrickson Golf Tournament at Alvamar. “I hope I can get in the gym soon and get some individuals (workouts) in, get in the flow of things and be ready for the season.” Davis had surgery in February after suffering a dislocated left knee and torn ACL during the opening minutes of a loss at Kansas State. A

first-team All-Big 12 performer both her sophomore season and again last season, Davis had averaged 17.5 points a game at the time of the injury. “We have weights with the team. I lift and do all that and some conditioning. I get in the gym with our trainer, and I do sprints and work on that, work on basic basketball things I haven’t done in a while,” Davis said. “I’ve followed my rehab procedures perfectly. I’ve done everything I can to get back to where I’m supposed to be,” added Davis, who hopes to be cleared to compete in her final Late Night in the Phog, set for Oct. 12 in Allen Fieldhouse.

Armstrong offering no regrets ASPEN, COLO. (AP) — Lance Armstrong was feeling just fine even after being beaten by a lanky teenager in a grueling 36mile mountain bike race. Better than fine, even. He’s more at ease now than he has been in a decade. In his first interview since the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency disciplined Armstrong with a lifetime ban from professional cycling and vacated his seven Tour de France titles, he said, “Nobody needs to cry for me. I’m going to be great.�

Armstrong couldn’t catch Keegan Swirbul at the Power of Four bike race Saturday, finishing nearly five minutes behind the hard-charging kid. “It’s cool to get your butt kicked by a 16-year-old when you know he has a bright future,� Armstrong said, smiling. For a few hours, Armstrong was back in his element — on a bike and in a race. No controversies weighing him down, either. The escape into the mountains around Aspen was almost refreshing. He took the time

to enjoy a bright, blue day and soak in the scenery. As for what lies ahead, Armstrong wasn’t thinking that far — only toward lunch. Armstrong chatted for a few minutes before saying, “OK, I’m going to go eat a cheeseburger.� Before leaving, though, he posed for pictures with the throng of fans that gathered at the base of a ski lift to watch the racers finish. Asked if there was anything he would to say to his fans, the ones who’ve supported him

Lance Armstrong was more than a guy on a bike. Indeed, he titled his as-told-to autobiography, “It’s Not About the Bike.â€? And he wasn’t just a guy who had cancer and lived to tell the tale. He was an inspiration, a role model, an object lesson regarding the power of the human will. He beat testicular cancer and didn’t just go on with his life. He became bigger than life. He won the Tour de France seven years running. He was named Sports Illustrated’s 2002 sportsman of the year and took multiple ESPYs as the male athlete of the year. Above and beyond all that, he was the guy who gave us the yellow bracelets, the ones bearing the name of his foundation — Livestrong. And now he stands revealed as ‌ what? A craven cheat? The hypocrite of all hypocrites? The guy who swore his innocence right up until the point where he decided to stop swearing? “I am ‌ finished with this nonsense,â€? was Armstrong’s rationale for dropping his fight against the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency, which took his words as an admission of guilt and moved to strip him of those seven Tour de France titles. (Though the International Cycling Union is waiting for further information to take action.) The USADA has vacated, to invoke the college sports word, everything Armstrong achieved in his sport from 1998 on. And we’re left to do ‌ what? To recall all the good will and admiration we directed toward Lance Armstrong all these years? To feel cheated ourselves? To feel — diving deeper here — that this beacon of hope actually was a manifestation of everything we have hoped against hope isn’t true? That the games aren’t rigged, that sports are indeed a measure of character, that the bad guys don’t always (or ever) win? If we’d been honest with ourselves, we might have wondered if the Livestrong story was the stirring saga it appeared to be. Armstrong was under suspicion even as he was winning those Tours. (This being cycling, everybody is under suspicion.) This is a terrible time to be a sports fan. (Last week Melky Cabrera, this week Bartolo Colon and now Armstrong.) For all the joy that’s supposed to come from following these athletes and their trivial pursuits, we keep slamming into chilling truths, or half-truths, or truth laced so heavily with fiction that it’s not true at all. All any of us can know for sure about Lance Armstrong is that the first part of his stirring saga stands: He did beat cancer. Everything afterward is open to interpretation. Everything afterward could well have been a lie. And all among us who have, through the years, sported those yellow bracelets? We could have shared his lie. Some feel-good story this is turning out to be, huh?

SERGIO GARCIA HITS OUT OF A SAND TRAP during the third round of The Barclays on Saturday in Farmingdale, N.Y. Garcia fired a 2-under 69 and leads by two strokes.

Garcia up by two at Barclays; Woods six back FARMINGDALE, N.Y. — The greens were so fast that Sergio Garcia didn’t know when the ball was going to stop. He was happy to see the day end with a 2-under 69, giving him a twoshot lead over Nick Watney going into the final round of The Barclays. Garcia fell out of the lead with a three-putt bogey on the third hole, but he didn’t have another one the rest of the round on a Bethpage Black course that lived up to its tough reputation Saturday because of greens that reminded players of another course on Long Island. Shinnecock Hills came up more than once. That’s when the USGA lost control of the greens in the final round of the U.S. Open, and even had to water one green in the middle of the round. Bethpage wasn’t that bad, but it was close. Watney, who made five putts over 15 feet, three-putted the final hole when his putt went racing 10 feet by the cup. He had to settle for a 71, giving him another round in the final group with Garcia. Tiger Woods, who started the third round three shots out of the lead, three-putted for bogey three times on the front nine alone. He had another three-putt on the 14th hole, this one from 15 feet, and had a 72 that put him six shots behind. Phil Mickelson might still be in the game. Twice a runner-up at Bethpage Black — both times in the U.S. Open — Mickelson played early Saturday and had a 67. That eventually put him in the large group at 4-under 209 that included Woods, Louis Oosthuizen, Lee Westwood and Charl Schwartzel.

Hamlin claims Bristol victory BRISTOL, TENN. — Denny Hamlin won for the first time at Bristol Motor Speedway with a calculated late pass. Hamlin flirted with Carl Edwards for the lead late in the race, and set up his move with 39 laps remaining Saturday night. Hamlin used a slide move to get past Edwards, then held on as Edwards tried to use a cross-over move to get back in front. It didn’t work for Edwards, and Hamlin drove away for his third victory of the season. Jimmie Johnson finished second and clinched a berth in the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship. Greg Biffle and Dale Earnhardt Jr. also locked down spots in the 12-driver field. Jeff Gordon was third, followed by Brian Vickers and Marcos Ambrose.

KU volleyball falls in final J-W Staff Reports

FAYETTEVILLE, ARK. — Kansas University’s volleyball team suffered a four-set loss to Arkansas in the championship match of the Arkansas Invitational on Saturday at Barnhill Arena. Earlier Saturday, the Jayhawks claimed a sweep of UT-Martin. Against UA, Kansas (2-1) dominated the first set and forced set-point in sets two and three, but Arkansas — bolstered by a crowd of over 1,200 fans — rallied. “Anytime you can get a team down, 2-0, or even 2-1, when you’re on the road, obviously that’s going to be helpful,” KU coach Ray Bechard said. “But once they were able to come back in two and

The Jayhawks also outdid the Razorbacks in service errors, committing 11 to UA’s eight. “We also had four aces to offset those errors, but really it was the timing of those errors more than anything,” Bechard said. “Overall our left sides did a nice job as did our middles, but it’s the first weekend out. We will be tough to defend. The disappointment lies in that we felt like we outplayed a team that came away with the win.” Against UT-Martin, Jarmoc led KU with 13 kills, and four Jayhawks had nine apiece. Kansas will start a seven-match home stand on Friday.

“It’ll be a process. I won’t be 100 percent at the beginning of the season. Hopefully at the end I’ll be there.” Davis said she has conferred with teammates Angel Goodrich and Tania Jackson, who have successfully battled back from ACL surgery, as well as WNBA player and former Jayhawk Danielle McCray. “Of course there are doubts when you have an injury like I won’t this,” Davis said. be 100 “ N o w percent at that I see where I the beginam and ning of the how much season. p r o g r e s s HopeI’ve made and also fully at the see how end I’ll be D a n i e l l e there.” has come along ... the fact — KU’s I have a Carolyn Davis whole year to get it right gives me a lot of confidence.” KU coach Henrickson, who welcomed more than 200 golfers to her tourney, which supports the Lawrence Memorial Hospital Breast Center, said she’s confident Davis will have a great pro career. “Absolutely, her and Angel both. There’s no doubt in my mind ... and the conversations I’ve had with coaches in the league (WNBA), those two are high prospects,” Henrickson said. She said there’s absolutely no rush to get Davis back on the court. “I think it’s probably unfair to her to give her a date,” Henrickson said. “Speaking with Doc (Jeff) Randall and talking with him initially is communicating (she’ll be ready) somewhere around Late Night. If she’s ready before that, that will be his call and the trainer’s call. If she’s not ready, the same thing, it’ll be the trainer’s call and the doc’s call. When she is released, it is when the docs say it’s fine for her to go.” Davis said she’s confident the team will build on last season’s run to the Sweet 16 of the NCAA Tournament. “I think the sky is the limit for us,” Davis said.

day it essentially conceded the season by sending three of its highly paid but underperforming stars to Los Angeles in a salary purge that will save more than $250 million through 2018. Hours after the deal was confirmed, Cook spotted the Royals a 3-0 lead before the Red Sox rallied back. Gomez started things with a solo homer in the four-run second, added a two-RBI single in the three-run third and singled in another run as Boston took a 9-3 lead in the fourth. Notes: The Red Sox activated LHP Felix Doubront from the 15-day disabled list, placed OF Daniel Nava on the 15-day DL with a left wrist sprain and recalled SS Jose Iglesias, OF Che-Hsuan Lin and Tazawa from TripleA Pawtucket. Doubront is scheduled to start today. ... The Red Sox played several moon-related songs between innings on the day Neil Armstrong,

No. 18 Baker football upends No. 11 Ottawa J-W Staff Reports

OTTAWA — Junior transfer Dillon Baxter rushed for 84 yards on 23 carries, and backup quarterback Sam Vossen threw for 129 yards and a touchdown as 18th-ranked Baker University opened its football season with a 27-20 victory over No. 11 Ottawa on Saturday. The road victory was Baker’s first against against a nonconference foe since 2000, when it beat Southwestern, 21-3. “What a gritty and tough victory for our guys,” Baker coach Mike Grossner said. “I’m so proud of the

way we stuck with the game plan and fought all the way until the end.” Vossen came in to replace injured starter Jake Morse in the first quarter. Vossen’s TD toss went to Dylan Perry, a score that gave BU a 13-10 lead in the third quarter. Kyle Bolton had 129 yards of offense — 60 rushing and 69 receiving — for the Wildcats. Emmerson Clarke had two interceptions for Baker, including one he returned 48 yards for a TD that gave BU a 27-13 lead. Baker will travel to Peru State on Saturday.

FROM LEFT, CARL CRAWFORD, JOSH BECKETT AND ADRIAN GONZALEZ are among the Boston Red Sox who will soon suit up for the Los Angeles Dodgers after a nineplayer trade Saturday. The Dodgers hope Crawford, Beckett and Gonzalez will perform up to their high-priced contracts and help the club make a push in the National League West.

Red Sox swap stars for Dodgers’ dregs BOSTON (AP) — The Los Angeles Dodgers are stocking up for the stretch run with some new, expensive players who couldn’t help the Boston Red Sox make it to the postseason this year or last. The Dodgers acquired first baseman Adrian Gonzalez, pitcher Josh Beckett and injured outfielder Carl Crawford from Boston on Saturday, hoping to boost their playoff hopes by taking on the underperforming and high-priced stars who failed to thrive in a fractious Red Sox clubhouse. Boston also sent infielder Nick Punto and about $11 million in cash to Los Angeles in the nine-player trade that was the biggest in Dodgers history. In return, the Red Sox got first baseman James Loney, pitcher Allen Webster, infielder Ivan DeJesus Jr. and two players to be named while shedding more than $250 million in salaries through 2018. “We understand that you have to spend money to be good in this league,” said Magic Johnson, the former NBA star who is part of the rich new Dodgers ownership group that has dramatically revamped their roster in the last month. “When we came in, we made it clear that we want to build the Dodgers back to what they once were,” Dodgers president Stan Kasten said. Los Angeles, which trailed the San Francisco Giants in the NL West by three games at the time of the trade, has in the past month acquired shortstop Hanley Ramirez, outfielder Shane Victorino, starter Joe Blanton and reliever Brandon League. The latest deal comes less than a week before the Aug. 31 deadline for players to be eligible for the postseason. “It’s just exciting,” Dodgers center fielder Matt Kemp said. “Everybody wants to win, and the guys up there are really making a statement and showing us that they want to win just as bad as we do.” For the Red Sox, who entered the night 131⁄2 games back in the AL East, the trade signaled a concession for 2012 and a

It’s surprising. You’re not used to seeing that many big names go in one trade — a bunch of All-Stars, guys who have been in World Series and played at a very high level.” — New York Yankees manager Joe Girardi chance to rebuild without hefty contracts given during an undisciplined foray into free agency that, Red Sox general manager Ben Cherington conceded, has not worked out. “It gives us an opportunity to build the next great Red Sox team,” Cherington said. “We just felt like to get to be a team we believe in and a team the fans deserve, to sustain winning year after year, it was going to take something more than cosmetic changes. It was going to take something bold.” The Red Sox will save $261 million in salaries through 2018, plus a few million more for the rest of this season. Boston will send $11 million going to the Dodgers as part of the deal, according to a baseball official with knowledge of the deal. “The bottom line is we haven’t won enough games. That goes back to last September,” Cherington said. “We just haven’t performed on the field. As a team we haven’t performed. ... This is not about the four players we gave up — anything particularly they did wrong. We just didn’t perform as a team.” Beckett was a key part of the team that won the 2007 World Series, but he was also the ringleader last year when the ballclub went 7-20 in September and missed a playoff spot on the final day of the season. Reports of players drinking beer and eating fried chicken in the clubhouse during games surfaced afterward, and Beckett’s haughty demeanor — and rising ERA — continued to alienate fans. The 2003 World Series MVP with the Florida Marlins, Beckett now

moves from fried chicken to the land of In-N-Out Burger, bringing with him a pair of other players who were not productive enough to justify their contracts. Beckett was due $31.5 million over the next two years; Gonzalez has $127 million coming through 2018; Crawford is due $102.5 million over the next five seasons. Players traded in August have to first pass through waivers. Any team with a worse record than Los Angeles could have claimed Gonzalez, Beckett and Crawford before the Dodgers, but it would have had to pick up their contracts. Instead, the teams worked out a deal that reshuffled the NL West race and had the rest of baseball talking, too. “It’s surprising,” New York Yankees manager Joe Girardi said. “You’re not used to seeing that many big names go in one trade — a bunch of AllStars, guys who have been in World Series and played at a very high level.” The 32-year-old Beckett is 5-11 with a 5.23 ERA in 21 starts this season. A threetime All-Star, he is 130-92 lifetime with a 3.93 ERA. Gonzalez, 30, is a fourtime All-Star and a threetime Gold Glove winner. He hit .300 with 15 home runs and 86 RBIs this season, his second since being traded by San Diego to Boston. Crawford, at 31, hit .282 with three homers and 19 RBIs in 31 games this season. He had Tommy John surgery on his left elbow this week and is expected to take six to nine months to recover. Crawford was a four-time All-Star with Tampa Bay before signing with Boston. The 34-year-old Punto hit .200 with one homer and 10 RBIs as a backup. Loney hit .254 with four homers and 33 RBIs for the Dodgers this season. At 28, he’d spent his whole career in Los Angeles. The 25-year-old DeJesus was optioned to Triple-A Pawtucket. He hit .273 in 23 games for the Dodgers this year. Webster, a 22-year-old right-hander, was 6-8 with a 3.55 ERA at Double-A Chattanooga.

Reds retire Larkin’s No. 11 CINCINNATI (AP) — The Cincinnati Reds retired Barry Larkin’s No. 11 before Saturday’s game against the St. Louis Cardinals, paying tribute to the Hall of Fame shortstop who led them to the 1990 World Series title. Larkin Larkin, joined on the field by members of his family, former teammates and members of the Reds organization, watched as his number was revealed, accompanied by a fireworks display. Wearing a gray sports coat and shirt

and black pants and wiping his eyes frequently with a white towel, he said he was proud of his hometown. “I’m so proud to be the first native Cincinnatian to be inducted into the Hall of Fame,” he told the sellout crowd before throwing a ceremonial first pitch to current Reds second baseman Brandon Phillips. “I’m so proud and humbled to be on the wall next to my idol, Dave Concepcion’s No. 13.” Larkin spent his entire 19-year career with Cincinnati and was inducted into baseball’s Hall of Fame this summer. He hit .295 with 198 home runs and 960 RBIs, winning the NL MVP award when he

helped the Reds win the NL Central in 1995. The 12-time All-Star served as team captain while winning nine Silver Slugger and three Gold Glove awards in his career. Larkin’s is the ninth uniform number to be retired in honor of a Reds player or manager, joining Concepcion, Fred Hutchinson’s No. 1, Johnny Bench’s 5, Joe Morgan’s 8, Sparky Anderson’s 10, Ted Kluszewski’s 18, Frank Robinson’s 20 and Tony Perez’s 24. Each of the honorees except Concepcion, Hutchinson and Kluszewski has been inducted into Cooperstown. No. 42 also has been retired in honor of Jackie Robinson.

to change my mind-set,” Opurum said. “It has to change a lot because, playing defensive end, my first step is forward. But when you’re playing linebacker, your first step depends on what everybody else does. So it’s a different mindset.” Campo believes Opurum’s mind is as important as his 6-foot-1, 250-pound frame. “He’s a smart guy,” Campo said. “And I think with the confidence level of the team picking him as captain, I think that helps. So you’ve got a lot of things that are positive. I’m more impressed with him now, after seeing what he did in the offseason, than I was even before.

When Opurum arrived at KU, he was a running back in mind, body and spirit. Today, after undergoing a couple of physical transformations and multiple position changes, the native Texan said he’s much more concerned with winning than worrying about what position fits him best. “At this point, I don’t even know any more,” he said. “If they ask me to go do something, I go do it, whether it’s running back, linebacker, defensive end, left tackle on punt.” Opurum has played all of those positions during his first three years as a Jayhawk, with injuries and opportunities popping up with regularity. While his performance at each spot has made him one of the bestknown names on the KU roster, Opurum said he hoped his final season would make him remembered. “It’s definitely been a different experience than I was expecting to have,” he said. “At this point, I figured I would still be on the offensive side of the ball, getting ready to enter the draft as a running back. Obviously, after I hurt my leg it just changed everything around. But I’m a firm believer that everything happens for a reason, and this has happened to me because something special is supposed to happen to me my senior year.”

KU snapper Carnes suspended 3 games stop by a Lawrence police officer near Fourth and Missouri streets. He was taken to jail on suspicion of operating a vehicle under the influence, a misdemeanor. He posted $500 bond at 8 a.m. and was released from jail. He was given notice to appear in Lawrence Municipal Court on Sept. 11. In April, Weis suspended running back James Sims three games for operating a vehicle under the influence. Carnes served as the Jayhawks’ snapper for PATs and field goals in 10 of their 12 games last season and was listed as the starter at snapper on KU’s depth chart entering fall camp.

Oklahoma State counting on fresh faces STILLWATER, OKLA. (AP) — Todd Monken never believed Charlie Moore or Isaiah Anderson would become impact players at Oklahoma State. He certainly didn’t expect them to be two major reasons the No. 19 Cowboys are confident they’ll be able to keep their passing game clicking along after losing first-round NFL draft picks Justin Blackmon and Brandon Weeden. In Monken’s eyes as the offensive coordinator, Moore was a converted quarterback whose running style was too stiff to translate to playing receiver at college football’s highest level. And Anderson was “just a fast

little dude that ran scared and didn’t catch the ball,” Monken said. But not anymore. The Cowboys are counting on Moore and Anderson to help fill major voids left in the passing offense that Charlie Moore ranked second in the nation a year ago and attempted more throws than all but three other Bowl Subdivision schools. Gone are Weeden, the school’s all-time passing leader and now the start-

ing quarterback for the Cleveland Browns, and Blackmon, a two-time AllAmerican and Biletnikoff Award winner as the nation’s top college receiver. As if that weren’t enough, Oklahoma State also lost second-leading receiver Josh Cooper, seniors Hubert Anyiam and Colton Chelf plus Michael Harrison. Add in a handful of receptions from bit players and the Cowboys are without the guys responsible for 264 catches and 3,158 yards from last season. That’s more production than about half of the nation’s teams had as a whole last season. “We lost obviously

some huge players but expectations stay the same. We’re a unit, the coaches have rebuilt us and they have a lot of confidence in us,” Moore said. “All these reps we’re taking and all this practice, I think we’re going to continue doing what we do.” Blackmon alone caught 122 passes for 1,522 yards and 18 touchdowns. Cooper chipped in 715 yards on 71 receptions, with three scores. With them gone, it means more chances for the guys who are left. “It’s different in all sorts of ways,” Moore said. “You don’t have those guys in the locker room. I miss those guys in the locker room. But as for on the field,

you realize it’s time for us to step up and they’re not here. It’s a growing process. It’s something you see every day.” Monken, who took over the offense before last season, never saw this coming. Moore had a breakout performance in the spring game, catching nine passes for 243 yards and three long touchdowns from 39, 58 and 59 yards out. Anderson has drawn perhaps more praise than any offensive player during training camp, and Monken knew he’d developed into more than just a speedster when his helmet got ripped off on a catch and he popped right back up.

“That’s why you never, ever, ever stop developing guys in your offense. I would have never guessed ... that they would be playing the way they’re playing now,” Monken said. “And I’m being critical of me. I’m the one going, ‘Pfft, there’s no way.’ And you know what? I’m dead wrong.” Tracy Moore is the most proven of Oklahoma State’s receivers after he caught 45 passes for 672 yards and four touchdowns last season. Anderson, Josh Stewart and junior college transfer Blake Jackson are listed as the other starters at receiver heading into the season opener Sept. 1 against Savannah State.

Youngsters make Horned Frogs hard to predict By Stefan Stevenson Fort Worth Star-Telegram

Will 2012 look more like 2001 or 2005? That’s what TCU fans are wondering as the Horned Frogs enter the Big 12 Conference. TCU finished 6-6 in 2001 after moving from the Western Athletic Conference to Conference USA. In 2005, the Frogs went 11-1 and won the Mountain West Conference in their first year in the league. TCU coach Gary Patter-

son usually has a firm grasp on how a season is going to play out. Whether he confides in the media is something else, but over the past few years he’s hinted during the off-season which direction he thought his team was headed. During the past three seasons, the Horned Frogs are 36-3, with two BCS bowl berths, giving Patterson plenty of chances to look like a soothsayer But 2012 is different. The Frogs are moving into the Big 12 where defeat

is always lurking if your team is not firing on all cylinders each week. So Patterson has played it closer to the vest this August, choosing to stay positive about his team where it’s warranted, but clearly pointing out the deficiencies, and the steep climb the Frogs face. For starters, Patterson points out, this is the youngest team he has coached in his TCU tenure. Freshmen will play valuable roles on both sides of the ball.

“If they don’t grow up then we’ll probably not have the season we need to,” Patterson said. “If you don’t grow some guys up, then you don’t have enough depth and you don’t win as many games as we’re used to here. You win championships with 2s and 3s.” But Patterson is pleased with the young talent he has to work with. In fact, there’s a good reason why he’s touting playing more than 10 true freshmen. They’re great athletes and

potentially one of the best freshman classes in TCU history. True, key losses have opened up depth chart holes, especially at offensive line and linebacker, but several freshmen have taken advantage of the void and are pushing for starting spots. “When I have younger football teams, I have more knuckleheads,” Patterson said when camp began Aug. 5. “I have 12 seniors, 11 juniors and 80 to 85 percent of the rest of my team is sophomores

and freshmen. I probably have more knuckleheads.” But he has been impressed with the newcomers’ work ethic and willingness to jump right into the fray. Still, Patterson is cautious about freshmen, especially in his defense, having the experience to play smart under pressure in the Big 12. “That’s the problem with young players. If you’re not accountable, you don’t win close games,” he said. “This is the youngest team I’ve coached in 15 years. It’s not even close.”

PRESEASON ROUNDUP

EVERY THERAPY EVERY DAY

WASHINGTON WIDE RECEIVER DEZMON BRISCOE CATCHES a touchdown pass in front of Indianapolis’ Josh Gordy during the second half of an NFL preseason game Saturday in Landover, Md. Briscoe, a former Kansas University standout, finished with two catches for 49 yards against the Colts.

Luck, Griffin face off as Redskins top Colts The Associated Press

Redskins 30, Colts 17 LANDOVER, MD. — Robert Griffin III was the last player announced during pregame ceremonies. He emerged from the tunnel, through the large inflatable Washington Redskins football helmet and onto the field, raising both arms to pump up a crowd eager for his first head-to-head match-up with Andrew Luck. Like everything else about the rookie, Griffin was doing something new — but looking as if he’d done it before. “I’ve never had my own introduction ever, high school or college, so that was extremely fun with the smoke and everything,” Griffin said. “It was like you’re in a movie.” In many ways, Saturday’s game was promoted like a movie opening, the curtain raiser for a budding quarterback rivalry between the Nos. 1 and 2 picks in the draft. The co-stars responded with a display of A-list poise and promise as Griffin’s Redskins defeated Luck’s Indianapolis Colts, 30-17. Top pick Luck completed 14 of 23 passes for 151 yards and a touchdown to fellow rookie T.Y. Hilton. Heisman Trophy winner Griffin went 11 for 17 for 74 yards and a scoring throw to veteran Santana Moss. Both quarterbacks played one series into the third quarter in the teams’ dress rehearsal for the regular season, with the Redskins ahead 14-7 when the subs took over. “I haven’t had any overall bad performances for myself. ... I thought he did a good job out there as well,” Griffin said. “They blew this up as a head-tohead, and we’ll see what happens next.” Barring an incredible pair of Super Bowl runs from two teams rebuilding from bad seasons, the first Luck-RGIII encounter that really counts won’t come until the 2014 regular season. Still, the comparisons will continue. The game was marketed to the hilt, offering a ground-floor glimpse at two players given the burden of reviving proud franchises. The Colts (No. 32 AP Pro32) are coming off a 2-14 season as they embark on the post-Peyton Manning era, while the Redskins (No. 25) went 5-11 last year for a fourth consecutive lastplace finish in the NFC East. Even so, it was merely a preseason game. The atmosphere in the stadium was far from electric and the offenses were still running basic schemes, saving the more creative stuff for their regular-season openers in two weeks.

Steelers 38, Bills 7 ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. — Receiver Antonio Brown scored two touchdowns in leading Pittsburgh to a preseason rout of Buffalo. Ben Roethlisberger shook off a slow start by engineering an 11-play, 98yard touchdown drive for the go-ahead score with a 6-yard pass to Brown at the end of the first half.

Ex-KBI director writes book about state’s crimes, famous and unheralded

FORMER KBI DIRECTOR LARRY WELCH is the author of the new book “Beyond Cold Blood: The KBI from Ma Barker to BTK,” which profiles some of Kansas’ most famous and important-but-unheralded crimes. He is pictured Aug. 20 in his Lawrence home.

Larry Welch chronicles cases from Clutter murders to now By Margie Carr ONLINE: See a special section on “In Cold Blood” and the Clutter family murders at LJWorld.com

Lawrence resident Larry Welch has wanted to write a book about the KBI for a long time — long before he was appointed director of it in 1994. “It always puzzled me that here was this agency that had done some remarkable things and no one had ever written a history of it,” he says. “In 1989, on their 50th anniversary, the KBI wrote an internal document, but it was never publicly disseminated.” Now, thanks to Welch, the

oir, or even meant to be ‘the’ history of the KBI,” Welch says. “It’s a history of it.” Welch tells the story through a series of investigations the KBI has been involved with over the years, including the titular case made famous by Truman Capote’s “In Cold Blood.” “How can you tell the history of the KBI without the Clutter case?” he says about the investigation that receives more media and research inquiries than all other KBI investigations combined. Another incident Welch knew he had to include was the KBI case involving five escaped prisoners who, in 1941, dug their way out of the

state penitentiary in Lansing. Then-Attorney General Jay Parker asked the KBI to capture and return them to prison. While three were apprehended relatively easily, two eluded authorities for months. When KBI special agent Joe Anderson went undercover and infiltrated the fugitives’ hideout, he learned of their plan to rob a bank in Macksville and alerted his colleagues. When the felons pulled up to the bank in their stolen Ford, KBI officials were ready, and a shootout ensued. The escaped prisoners were killed at the scene. Please see WELCH, page 2C

ARTIST PORTRAIT

A river runs through Nancy Marshall’s work By Sara Shepherd sshepherd@ljworld.com

Lawrence artist Nancy Marshall’s River Series paintings aren’t exactly landscapes. And they aren’t exactly still lifes. They’re both — depicted in saturated color and detail, with touches of mystery and fantasy that convey both nature’s beauty and people’s indulgence in a single frame. Pieces from the River Series, Marshall’s most recent themed body of work, are the centerpiece of an exhibit in Parkville, Mo., and will be featured on this fall’s Lawrence Art Walk. The series joins other examples of Marshall’s signature work, including bird’s-eye tabletop scenes and portraits. Marshall, who formerly taught art at Topeka High School, grew up in Hannibal, Mo., near the banks of the Mississippi River. For her, rivers represent adventure and freedom, and her own

Lights can help separate Marshall photo subject, background I CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1C

’ve talked before about visual style and how each Journal-World photographer gravitates toward creating a particular look in the photos we create. I think more often than not that when I’m unhappy with a photo it’s because there is not sufficient separation between the subject and the background.

Behind the Lens

Nick Krug nkrug@ljworld.com

Often when I shoot portraits, I will add a rim light behind my subject to help define the edges. A little bit can give the aforementioned separation. Too much can make your subject appear as though they are standing in front of an oncoming vehicle. A good practice to follow with portraiture while using multiple lights is to situate your subject and your key light (main light source) first. After you have adjusted the power of your key light to get a nice exposure, you can then add a rim light. Typically, what I will often do is position the rim light directly behind the subject or slightly

In the accompanying photo of Kansas defensive end Toben Opurum, I used two lights. The first, my key light, was positioned at camera left at about a 45-degree angle from Opurum and pointed slightly downward. The backlight or rim light is opposite the key light, behind Opurum at camera right and out of the frame. The highlights around his arms and his cheek

This incident was the first major test for the young agency that, Welch says, “sealed its future” as praise poured in from across the state and nation. Welch has a personal connection to the case as his mentor, the then-sheriff of Stafford County Logan Sanford, who would later direct the KBI, stood alongside the KBI agents during the shootout. Also in the crowd was Shirley Barnes, a little girl who would become Welch’s high school sweetheart and his wife of 56 years. Welch’s favorite case in the book involves the 1971 disappearance of 78-yearold Goldie Millar from her Kiowa County ranch. “Pyle is an important case,” Welch says. “More people need to know about it.” The case is significant because, although her body was never found, local prosecutors, with the help of KBI agents, were able to gather sufficient evidence to convince a jury that her grandson,

“BEYOND COLD BLOOD: The KBI from Ma Barker to BTK,” by former KBI director Larry Welch, will be released in September. Mike Pyle, murdered her and burned down her house. The conviction was later upheld by the Kansas Supreme Court. “Shirley will tell you that whenever we are watching a police crime show and someone says something about not being able to prosecute without a body, I start yelling about the Pyle case,” he says. “This is the case people cite when attempting to prosecute without a body.” Another case Welch writes about involved the 1969 conviction of

U.K. papers steer clear of Harry photos LONDON (AP) — The prince has no clothes — but British newspapers aren’t running the pictures. The country’s scandalloving tabloids devoted many pages Thursday to the story of Prince Harry’s naked romp in a Las Vegas hotel suite. But all heeded a warning from royal officials that printing the images, already seen by millions on the Internet, would infringe on the prince’s privacy. So while Ireland’s Evening Herald ran the starknaked prince on its front page, British newspapers made do with pictures of holiday Harry in bathing trunks and fedora hat. The Sun tabloid came up with the most creative solution, getting a staff member named Harry and a 21-year-old female intern to recreate the naked pose under the headline “Harry grabs the crown jewels.” Bob Satchwell, head of

industry group the Society of Editors, said papers were merely complying with editors’ voluntary Code of Practice, which declares “it is unacceptable to photograph individuals in private places without their consent.” But other media-watchers said a scandal that erupted a year ago over phone-hacking and other tabloid wrongdoing had tamed Britain’s once-rambunctious press. Newspapers were exposed to a trial of public opinion as Judge Brian Leveson’s media ethics inquiry heard from celebrities, politicians and crime victims who said their lives had been turned upside down by press intrusion. The scandal has killed one tabloid, the News of the World — shut down by owner Rupert Murdoch after revelations about its illegal eavesdropping — and tarnished the entire British media.

are created by the rim light and help to define him as the big, muscular guy that he is. One more thing to note is that when I use rim lights, I typically trigger them with a remote device. But as Mike Yoder mentioned in last week’s Behind the Lens column, you can purchase flash units with built-in sensors that can be triggered by the burst of light from another flash unit. — Photographer Nick Krug can be reached at 832-6353.

two women for armed robbery. The judge who oversaw the trial had an “uneasy feeling” about the evidence and asked the KBI to investigate after new information emerged. They did, and the women were released. “The KBI isn’t always about convicting people,” Welch says. “Sometimes we help prove someone is innocent. “Basically, that is how it works. The KBI goes where they are needed.” And as director, Welch sent them where they were needed: to Costa Rica following the 2001 murder of KU student Shannon Martin; to hurricane-ravaged Louisiana in 2005; and to the numerous Kansas towns devastated by methamphetamines. Welch retired from the KBI in 2007, which was when he got serious about his manuscript. He says that he is most proud of the fact that he wrote the book for everyone. “The crimes that I describe in this book are obscenities, especially the homicides,” he says, “but I wrote the book so my grandmother could read it, so high school history classes could read it.”

their ecological health and hopes her paintings might inspire social consciousness. “I like the idea that people understand where their water comes from and the importance of having clean water,” she says. “It all comes down to political decisions that are made.” In her portraits, Marshall also takes a carefully arranged approach. Besides the likeness of her subjects, she inserts their prized possessions, their home landscapes and sometimes even their loved ones into the composition. “We define ourselves by things we choose to have around us,” she says. “So putting those in a painting adds to who we are as a person.” Topeka sculptor Jim Bass, whose late wife was a high school teaching colleague of Marshall’s, noted Marshall’s attention to detail and ability to balance color and composition. He also commended her portraiture. “Portraits are scary things to take on,” Bass says. “She just jumps in there where angels fear to tread.” Cindi Morrison, director of the Mulvane Art Museum at Topeka’s Washburn University, facilitated the purchase of

Not what he bargained for Posnanski’s ‘Paterno’ complicates Penn State story

Joe Posnanski moved to State College, Pa., to write a much different book.

And yet, he won more games than anyone.” The book he was writing was based, after all, on full access to the coach and his records. And then everything changed.

PENN STATE PRESIDENT GRAHAM SPANIER, left, and head football coach Joe Paterno talk before a college football game against Iowa in State College, Pa., in this Oct. 8, 2011, file photo. Both men were forced from their jobs for improper handling of the Jerry Sandusky sex-crimes scandal. There are also “intermezzos,” in which Posnanski takes an entertaining bit of Paterno apocrypha, polished smooth after years of circulation on the after-dinner circuit — his four losses to Alabama’s Bear Bryant, for example — and gives us the funny version and also the more pedestrian one. Throughout, Posnanski avoids the pitfalls of the worst sports biographies: game results. Instead of a forced march through 50 years of football, Posnanski treads lightly, mentioning only pertinent highlights from particularly big games. Those who followed Posnanski’s work in The Kansas City Star will find familiar ground here, as his storytelling is as fluid as ever. This is an archive and interview book, but every now and then, his sharp reporter’s eye is on display. Posnanski describes a scene the night Paterno was fired. Students and others had silently gathered at the Paterno statue, and Posnanski conveys the ultimate sign of 21stcentury respect for this quintessentially 20th-century coach with a choice detail: “A girl of twenty or so felt her phone vibrate but did not answer it.”

‘Despised each other’ Among the frustrations, a casual follower of this story might be surprised to learn from Posnanski’s book that Paterno and Sandusky were not friends; not only that, but these two men who’d worked alongside each other for 30 years “despised each other.” Their relationship seems to have been a symbiosis of barely suppressed enmity. Posnanski mentions what the family calls Paterno’s “Why I Hate Jerry Sandusky” memo — written in 1993 — but does not quote from it. The gist seems to be that Paterno thought Sandusky had lost his fire for coaching.

If that were the case, a reader wants to know, why did Paterno wait another five years to make it clear to Sandusky that he would not be head coach? According to the independent report headed by former FBI director Louis Freeh, that discussion took place in 1998 just a month or so before the campus police investigated Sandusky for inappropriate behavior with an 11-yearold boy in a locker room shower. This shouldn’t be confused with a similar incident in 2001, which had been reported to Paterno by graduate assistant Mike McQueary. Paterno contended to the Sandusky grand jury that he knew nothing about the 1998 assault. Except, well, it seems he did. The Freeh Report includes — and Posnanski mentions — a one-line email from May 1998. Athletic director Tim Curley is asking for an update on “Jerry,” because “Coach is anxious to know where this stands.” Let’s pause here. In Posnanski’s words, Paterno told the grand jury he “had never heard another rumor about Sandusky, but admitted that things could have been said in his presence that he had forgotten.” Men in their early 80s do forget things. But it strains credulity to believe that Paterno, whose players often praised his remarkable memory for things like the cheesecake their mothers had served him on recruiting visits, forgot allegations of pederasty involving an employee whom he not only hated but who had founded and run a charity for wayward adolescent boys. This is one of many contradictions that begin to trouble the reader. Up until now, even when Paterno has been a jerk — and his players usually thought he was that — the reader has liked Posnanski’s Paterno, a Brooklyn boy who majored in Eng-

Book provides meticulous study of Lindbergh kidnapping By Michael E. Young The Dallas Morning News

A long-held memory shared between a father and a son, just a couple of words from an otherwise indecipherable conversation, yields “Cemetery John,” Robert Zorn’s meticulous study of the Lindbergh kidnapping and the identity of the man Zorn calls the crime’s mastermind. Zorn’s father, Eugene, who would become an esteemed economist with a long stint at Dallas’ Republic National Bank in the 1960s and ‘70s, was 15 years old at the story’s beginning in 1931, living in a neighborhood of mostly German immigrants in the Bronx. One neighbor, John Knoll, a clerk at a local deli who shared an interest in stamp collecting with Eugene Zorn, invited the teen to visit New Jersey’s Palisades Amusement Park, just across the

Hudson from New York. There, Knoll spoke earnestly with two other men, in German, a language young Zorn didn’t understand. Only two words were familiar to Zorn: “Bruno,” the name of one of the men; and “Englewood,” a posh suburb nearby. Englewood was also the hometown of Anne Morrow Lindbergh, the wife of celebrated aviator Charles Lindbergh, and together perhaps the most famous couple in the world in 1931. They spent much of their time in Anne’s family home with their son, Charlie Jr. Eugene Zorn hadn’t thought about Knoll’s meeting with the other men in years, not until in 1963 he flipped through a True magazine. A story on the Lindbergh case brought the memory flooding back, a memory he only shared with his son 17 years later. Had he really witnessed a meeting to plan what truly may have

been the Crime of the Century? “Cemetery John” presents a powerful case. In painstaking detail, using historical documents and old photos, modern forensics and consultations with criminal profilers, Robert Zorn concludes that John Knoll was Cemetery John, who met with an emissary from the Lindberghs to arrange the ransom payment and later collected the $50,000 after the serial number of each bill had been carefully recorded by investigators. Those serial numbers eventually led to the arrest of Bruno Richard Hauptmann, the only person ever charged with snatching Charlie Lindbergh from his crib, even though investigators found two sets of footprints and a two-piece homemade ladder at the crime scene. In his own reconstruction of the abduction, Zorn theorizes

that Hauptmann slipped through the front door of the Lindbergh home, crept up the stairs, tucked the curly haired baby into a burlap sack and handed it to John Knoll, teetering on the flimsy ladder while his younger brother, Walter, tried to steady it from below. Somehow, Knoll dropped the sack, perhaps killing little Charlie in the fall, before he and his brother fled with the child to their waiting car. The Knoll brothers were never linked to the crime, until now. Though Zorn’s conclusions have already generated considerable debate among the many who still follow the case eight decades later, he convincingly lays out the evidence. Photos of John Knoll closely resemble police sketches of Cemetery John. And Knoll has the same lumpy growth on his left thumb described by Dr. John F. Condon, witness in the case.

New website connects bars with barflies By Alex Parker aparker@ljworld.com

A trio of local entrepreneurs is betting that Lawrence residents want a new way to connect with their favorite watering holes. A new website, BarAllMeans.com, debuted this month, and it aims to make it easier for bar hoppers to find bar events and drink specials in the city. Kowen Moffer, 27, a former Kansas University student from Overland Park, teamed up with DeAndre Andersen, 24, a Haskell Indian Nations University student from Anchorage, Alaska, and Patrick Denton, 25, a KU student from Shawnee, to create the site.

The site, which is free for users and bars alike, lets people know about drink specials and events, and keeps a running tab of what venues are hopping. Users can rate and review bars. Bars that register on the site can keep updated drink specials, events and a Twitter-like feed of their latest news. So far, BarAllMeans has signed up four Lawrence bars: The Cave, It’s Brothers, the Jackpot Saloon and the Granada. It has also ventured into Lenexa, Olathe, Overland Park and Kansas City, Mo. The site tries to make events easier to manage than, say, Facebook’s offerings because it doesn’t require venues to take an

extra step to invite people. “The whole city gets to see it,” Moffer says. BarAllMeans is the latest entrant in a crop of recently established sites attempting to corner the nightlife market in Lawrence, including LarryvilleKU.com, a project headquartered at KU’s journalism school, KUNights.com, which is affiliated with Nightlife KC, and LawrenceNightOut. com. But the site isn’t Facebook or Foursquare, so you can’t see who’s at a certain bar. In fact, it purposefully shuns the socialnetworking aspect. “We’re not trying to be a social network at all. We’re trying to be an information platform,” Moffer says.

Is it OK to explore different religions when you move away to college? Searching for answers invaluable part of the soul The Rev. David Rivers, senior pastor, First Christian Church, 1000 Ky.: Exploration is an indispensable part of the soul as it searches for the answers to some of life’s greatest questions, like “Is there a God?,” “Why am I here?” and “Who am I?,” among many others. The greatest writings conveying the relationship between God and humanity are the result of deep soulsearching. Often, the age in which the deeper questions of the soul emerge happens at the same time that students leave the confines of home and are launched into a world that brings fresh challenges and opportunities. These come from every direction, and

many embark on the voyage of soulsearching for years to come. T h e c o n c e r n Rivers of many Christians, perhaps other faiths as well, is whether exposure to other religions is dangerous for one’s faith. Perhaps. It depends on one’s perspective of the “evils” out there and God’s power. On the one hand, I like how one theologian once said that God is actively “wooing” humanity to himself. If this is true, the exploration is in fact a journey toward the God who is wooing us back to himself. The end result is God.

Yet there are some who worry that exposure to other faiths may lead one away from their own. As a Christian, I must always remember that my tradition blossomed from Judaism. Jesus, a Jewish follower, invited humanity to come and follow him on a new way. This new way was the invitation of love — to love God with all that I am and to love my neighbor as well. Yet even in the time of Jesus, followers were entrenched in a culture with a multitude of religions. Therefore, they learned how to practice this new way that leads to life and, ultimately, God. So explore, question and find life! — Send email to David Rivers at david@fcclawrence.org.

Send your questions about faith and spiritual issues for our religion columnists to religion@ljworld.com.

Try to find a spiritual life that fits Judy Roitman, guiding teacher, Kansas Zen Center, 1423 N.Y.: This question is about what happens when you start living on your own. College has nothing to do with it. Permission from strangers writing in the paper has nothing to do with it either. So suppose you’ve just started living on your own. Does your spiritual life fit? If it does, why would you want to look elsewhere? If it doesn’t, then you can put up with it anyway, look around for something else, or leave religion entirely. These are your options at any time in your life. I used the word “fit” very carefully. A lot of people want a religion that makes them feel good.

But if you go deeply enough into any religion, you will find yourself challenged, f a c i n g things that Roitman are difficult to face. That’s one of the basic purposes of any religion. It’s not about whether you feel good — it’s whether the religion (or lack of it) helps you look at the hard stuff. If your religion fits, or if it doesn’t and you’ve started looking around at other religions or none, there’s nothing more to say. But suppose you’re just going through the religious motions. A lot of people do. If it doesn’t

bother you, no problem. But maybe you feel like you are drowning. Then you need to do something. It can be very difficult. Your friends may not understand. Your family may not understand. You may fear becoming a pariah. But it’s like gay people coming out. Some have it easy, some have it hard, but people who come out as gay very rarely regret it. Their life can feel whole. That’s what I would wish for everyone reading this: that you feel spiritually whole. And if you don’t right now, that you find something — whatever fits, from monastic life to atheism — that helps you do so. — Send email to Judy Roitman at jroitman@ku.edu.

‘True Blood’ cookbook full of crimson delicacies NEW ORLEANS — “True Blood” fans can soon concoct their own blood-red beet bisque, crimson sweet tea and other Cajun delicacies inspired by the hit HBO vampire drama and compiled in a new cookbook. “True Blood” is filmed partly in Louisiana and is set in the fictional Louisiana town of Bon Temps. The state’s cuisine is often referenced in the series, where vampires and mortals mingle over bowls of okra gumbo, jambalaya, and red beans and rice. The cookbook, “True Blood: Eats, Drinks, and Bites from Bon Temps,” was compiled by Cajun

chef Marcelle Bienvenu and is being released in bookstores on Wednesday, shortly after tonight’s broadcast of the show’s fifth-season finale. “I’m going to be honest with you, I had never seen the show before they asked me to do this cookbook,” said Bienvenu, a chef from the Cajun town of St. Martinville, La., who lived in New Orleans for several years and now teaches culinary arts at Nicholls State University in Thibodaux, La. “I sat down and watched it with my notebook, and I was amazed how much food was mentioned in the series,” she said. “It was fun

making the recipes come to life. I think people are still mystified by south Louisiana food. There’s still such a mystique about the food and culture here.” In the cookbook, recipes are accompanied with pictures and excerpts from the series. For instance, a recipe for creamy crawfish dip is displayed among pictures from a scene in which Stackhouse drives to Shreveport, La., to see a werewolf but is instead greeted at the door by Debbie Pelt, a character who has twice tried to kill her. In the scene, Debbie offers Sookie a helping of crawfish dip.

LANDSCAPE DESIGNER LAUREL SEARS ARRANGES A CONTAINER for a client. Sears often changes the plants throughout the year so the color will change with the seasons.

Fall flowers brighten landscape

N

ow is the perfect time to spruce up a heatand drought-stressed landscape with fall-blooming and cool-weather-loving plants. Containers especially can benefit from having a few plants replaced, and the right selections will brighten the landscape through autumn and possibly early winter. Laurel Sears, landscape designer and colorscape specialist with Lawrence Landscape, says this is also a good time to change the tone of the landscape by mixing in fall color. “Pinks, purples, reds and yellows are great bright summertime colors, but I like to mix in bronzy burnt oranges and chocolately purples to reflect the changing leaves,” she tells me. She is planting a purple flowering kale in a white window box at the Liz and Gary Hamm residence in Lawrence as we speak. A bronze-purple coleus, chartreuse creeping jenny (Lysimachia), petunias and beggarticks (Bidens) will accent the kale, adding color and interest to the planter. “I’m really big on texture,” Sears adds. “Kale, chard, or-

namental cabbage and red mustard are excellent in containers. They’ve got height and color and go into the cold temperatures well.” In another container, a large, blue, glazed ceramic pot, Sears is removing tired petunias and replacing them with red salvia, white begonias and another coleus. A corkscrew rush will stay in the pot, along with a chartreuse sweet potato vine that hangs over the pot, adding dimension. I quickly realized the main reason my own containers take so long to fill in — Sears is using more plants per container. “Don’t be afraid to pack

PANSIES ALONG WITH PLANTS THAT CREEP can add color and fill a container on a patio or alongside a home. them in,” she says. “That’s one of the great things about containers — these plants have pretty small root systems, and you’re planting for a single season. You’ll get a lot more effect that way.” Sears also recommends watering and fertilizing containers regularly. Drip irrigation is a great option for large pots, especially for travelers or in summers like the one we just experienced. Check with your irrigation provider

to determine whether a system is cost-effective. For fertilizer, a slow-release granular product works well and can be applied about every six weeks. Liquid fertilizers are also good for container plantings but are more difficult to apply. Pot size and color seem less important than what goes in the pots, but if purchasing a new container, make sure that it is large enough for the effect you want and that it has drain-

age holes. If the pot will hold a large plant, it should be substantial enough to anchor the plant even in strong winds. If the pot will drain somewhere that could leave an unsightly stain, use a saucer or cork mat to soak up the overflow. Sears (and Kansas State University specialists) recommends using a soilless potting mix for best results. There are several commercially available potting mixes that are formulated for optimum root growth and good air and water movement. Another tip from Sears for creating great containers is to follow the old advice of thriller, spiller, filler. The thriller is a taller plant with a lot of visual interest; the spiller is a plant that drapes or vines over the edge of the container; and the filler is the plants that are used to fill the space between the thriller and spiller. I am ready to do some planting! — Jennifer Smith is the Horticulture Extension Agent for K-State Research and Extension in Douglas County.

KOVEL’S ANTIQUES

Before chairs were for everyone, footstools reigned By Terry Kovel

A cricket is an insect, but it also may be a footstool. The cricket footstool was usually no more than 12 inches high. It was used as a seat for very young children in school or as a foot rest. Larger stools, 12 inches to 18 inches high, were used for seating teenage children and adults. A few stools were used like steps to help short people get into bed, and some very tall stools were made for stand-up desks. Taverns often used stools as seats. Chairs were made only for kings and very important people until the early 1700s. Chair-makers made stools in popular chair styles. Upholstered stools were billed as chairs were: one charge for the frame, an added one for the upholstery. Fabrics were expen-

into the front of the base. The mark printed on the bottom is “Mark Hampton Co. Inc., 1328 Broadway, New York City, Copyrighted 1915-1910.” What is it worth?

The original etchings were printed in a total edition of 180 on two types of paper, one in black ink and one in sepia ink. Each example of this edition was hand-signed by Dali in pencil on the lower right corner. Many were marketed by the Collectors Guild. In 1968, the Collectors Guild published a new edition of the “Immortals.” For this edition, Dali etched his name into the printing plate instead of hand-signing the prints. Thousands were printed. A rare hand-signed edition sold at auction in 2012 for $250. An etched-signature edition recently sold for $40.

Let go of demand for family apology Dear Annie: My problem is my husband’s much younger 18-yearold sister. Because there’s such an age gap, “Lauren” has always been given whatever she wanted and told that everything she does is wonderful. My husband’s parents are only in their mid-50s, but say they’re “too old” to be raising a teenager and never discipline her. Unsurprisingly, Lauren didn’t get accepted into any of her preferred colleges. I have a teaching position at the local university, and my motherin-law asked whether I could pull some strings and get Lauren into my school. I honestly don’t feel that Lauren reaches the caliber of student my department requires. I told my mother-in-law as gently as I could that Lauren needs to stand on her own two feet and learn how to do things for herself. I offered to help her submit a college ap-

She then called my husband at work and told him what a mistake he made when he married me and how I’m ruining the family. This phone call was followed by one from his brother, who said if I don’t help Lauren, I’m no longer a member of their family. A few weeks later, we were invited to a family cookout, and they acted

It does not benefit Lauren to have so little discipline and direction, and her parents are lazy and negligent in their parenting. Suggest to Lauren that she apply to community college. It will give her time to get her act together while providing a decent education and college experience. Dear Annie: My husband and I are both retired. We are comfortable, but by no means wealthy.

L AWRENCE J OURNAL -W ORLD

Obama: Romney holds ‘extreme’ views By Ben Feller Associated Press

WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama said Mitt Romney has locked himself into “extreme positions” on economic and social issues and would surely impose them if elected, trying to discredit his Republican rival at the biggest political moment of his life. In an interview with The Associated Press, Obama said Romney lacks serious ideas, refuses to “own up” to the responsibilities of what it takes to be president, and deals in factually dishonest arguments that could soon haunt him in face-to-face debates. Obama also offered a glimpse of how he would govern in a second term of divided government, insisting rosily that the forces of the election would help break Washington’s stalemate. He said he would be willing to make a range of compromises with Republicans, confident there are some who would rather make deals than remain part of “one of the least productive Congresses in

American history.” With the remarks, O b a m a set up a contrast between Romney, Obama whom he cast as an extremist pushing staunchly conservative policies, and himself, by saying he would work across party lines. It was a seeming play for the independent voters who decide close elections and tell pollsters they want to see the often-gridlocked politicians in Washington solve the nation’s problems. Mainly, Obama was intent on countering Romney even before his challenger got to the Republican National Convention. In doing so, the president depicted his opponent as having accumulated ideas far outside the mainstream with no room to turn back. “I can’t speak to Governor Romney’s motivations,” Obama said. “What I can say is that he has signed up for positions, extreme positions, that are very consistent with positions that a number of

House Republicans have taken. And whether he actually believes in those or not, I have no doubt that he would carry forward some of the things that he’s talked about.” Obama spoke to the AP on Thursday before heading off to a long weekend with his family at Camp David, the secluded presidential retreat in the Maryland mountains. The president was at ease but doggedly on script, steering even personal-themed questions about Romney and running mate Paul Ryan into answers about starkly different visions for helping the middle class. Romney, a successful former executive of a private equity firm and one-time Massachusetts governor, will introduce himself to a TV audience of millions this week when he takes the convention stage to accept his party’s presidential nomination. He has offered himself as a business-minded alternative to Obama and has seized on voter concerns about joblessness and the direction of the nation. Nearly 10 weeks before

Election Day, the race is remarkably stable and reflective of a sharply divided nation, with registered voters about evenly split on their choice and nearly a quarter of them unsure or still willing to change their mind. Across the interview, Obama’s messages often seemed directed at moderate and independent voters whose sway could make the difference. Obama’s depiction of a Romney presidency grew most pointed when he was asked if his Republican challenger has no core, as one of Obama’s top advisers once put it. The president suggested that whatever Romney really stands for in life is secondary to the promises Romney has made in the campaign. In explaining his accusation of “extreme” positions, the president cited Romney’s call for across-theboard tax cuts that Obama said would mostly help the rich at the expense of everyone else and cost the nation $5 trillion. Obama singled out Romney’s opposition to tax credits for producers of wind energy.

1st day of GOP convention scrapped By David Espo Associated Press

TAMPA, FLA. — Republican officials abruptly announced plans Saturday evening to scrap the first day of their national convention, bowing to a threat posed by Tropical Storm Isaac, churning toward Florida. “Our first priority is ensuring the safety of delegates, alternates, guests, members of the media attending the Republican National Convention, and citizens of the Tampa Bay area,” party chairman Reince Priebus said in an emailed announcement that followed private conversations involving presidential candidate Mitt Romney’s campaign, security officials and others. Priebus added that forecasters have predicted that convention-goers

ICE chief accused of sexual misconduct WASHINGTON — At least three employees at U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement have made serious complaints alleging inappropriate sexual behavior by a senior Obama administration political appointee and longtime aide to Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano, according to court records and a letter describing the claims submitted to a congressional oversight committee. The complaints are related to a sexual discrimination and retaliation lawsuit filed in May by a senior ICE agent. They accuse Suzanne Barr, the agency’s chief of staff, of sexually inappropriate behavior toward employees. Barr is on leave while the allegations are being investigated, a spokesman for the agency said. Repeated attempts for more than one week to reach Barr for comment by phone and email have been unsuccessful.

Refinery blast kills 26 in Venezuela CARACAS, VENEZUELA — A huge explosion rocked Venezuela’s biggest oil refinery and unleashed a ferocious fire on Saturday, killing at least 26 people and injuring more than 80 others in one of the deadliest disasters ever to hit the country’s key oil industry. Balls of fire rose over the Amuay refinery, among the largest in the world, in video posted on the Internet by people who were nearby at the time. Government officials pledged to restart the refinery within two days and said the country has plenty of fuel supplies on hand to meet its domestic needs as well as its export commitments.

“may encounter severe transportation difficulties due to sustained wind and rain” on Monday, the day the convention had been scheduled to open. The announcement said that while the convention would officially be gaveled into session on Monday as scheduled, the day’s events would be cancelled until Tuesday. That meant Romney’s formal nomination would be postponed by a day, from Monday to Tuesday, but the balance of the four days of political pageantry and speechmaking would go on as scheduled. The former Massachusetts governor campaigned in battleground Ohio during the day, pledging to help women entrepreneurs and innovators who are eager to create small businesses and the jobs that go with them. It was an econo-

my-themed countdown to the Republican National Convention taking shape in a city al- Romney ready bristling with security — and bracing for a possible hurricane. “Women in this country are more likely to start businesses than men. Women need our help,” said the Republican presidential challenger, eager to relegate recent controversy over abortion to the sidelines and make the nation’s slow economic recovery the dominant issue of his convention week. The former Massachusetts governor campaigned with running mate Paul Ryan in battleground Ohio as delegates

arrived in Florida by the planeload. Across town, technicians completed the conversion of a hockey arena along Tampa Bay into a red, white and bluethemed convention hall. The announcement made the GOP convention the party’s second in a row to be disrupted by weather. Four years ago, the delegates gathered in St. Paul, Minn., but Hurricane Gustav, slamming the Gulf Coast, led to a one-day postponement. Four years later, there was no immediate sign that Romney’s forces would do anything other than squeeze two nights’ of platform programming into one. Nor did it appear the postponement would cost them much, since the television networks had already announced they would not be carrying any of Monday’s events live.

Apple’s $1B patent verdict could corner market “

By Paul Elias

Associated Press

SAN JOSE, CALIF. — It was the $1 billion question Saturday: What does Apple Inc.’s victory in an epic patent dispute over its fiercest rival mean for the U.S. smartphone industry? Analysts from Wall Street to Hong Kong debated whether a jury’s decision that Samsung Electronics Co. ripped off Apple technology would help Apple corner the U.S. smartphone market over Android rivals, or amount to one more step in a protracted legal battle over smartphone technology. Many analysts said the decision could spell danger for competitors who, like Samsung, use Google Inc.’s Android operating system to power their cellphones. “I am sure this is going to put a damper on Android’s growth,” New York-based Isi Group analyst Brian Marshall said, “It hurts the franchise.” The Silicon Valley jury found that some of Samsung’s products illegally copied features and designs exclusive to Apple’s iPhone and iPad. The verdict was narrowly tailored to only Samsung, which sold more than 22 million smartphones and tablets that Apple claimed used its technology, including the “bounce-back” feature when a user scrolls to an end image, and the ability to zoom text with a tap of a finger. But most other Apple competitors have used the Android system to produce similar technology, which

I am sure this is going to put a damper on Android’s growth. It hurts the franchise.” — New York-based Isi Group analyst Brian Marshall

could limit the features offered on all non-Apple phones, analysts said. Seo Won-seok, a Seoulbased analyst at Korea Investment, said that the popular zooming and bounce-back functions the jury said Samsung stole from Apple will be hard to replicate. The companies could opt to pay Apple licensing fees for access to the technology or develop smarter technology to create similar features that don’t violate the patent — at a cost likely to be passed onto consumers. Apple lawyers are planning to ask that the two dozen Samsung devices found to have infringed its patents be barred from the U.S. market. Most of those devices are “legacy” products with almost nonexistent new sales in the United States. Apple lawyers will also ask that the judge triple the damage award to $3 billion since the jury found Samsung “willfully” copied Apple’s patents. A loss to the Androidbased market would represent a big hit for Google as well. Google relies on Android devices to drive mobile traffic to its search engine, which in turn generates increased advertising revenue.

Florida prepares for NRC, Tropical Storm Isaac By Bill Barrow Associated Press

TAMPA, FLA. — The site of the National Republican Convention showed no signs of a coming deluge Saturday, even as the approaching Tropical Storm Isaac sent officials across the state into fullscale preparation mode. Streets were already shut down around the Tampa Bay Times Forum, where former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney will accept his party’s presidential nomination Thursday night. Law enforcement milled about downtown, and some protests already were under way. One group protesting homelessness and the housing crisis “took over” a foreclosed home by cleaning the yard and planned to help a homeless couple move in. Florida Gov. Rick Scott, a Republican, declared a

A hurricane warning had been issued for the Florida Keys, and officials

Al Diaz/The Miami Herald/AP Photo

warned tourists to leave. Forecast models show Isaac likely won’t hit Tampa head-on, but it could lash the city with rain and strong winds just as the convention ramps up.

“I told some of my Democratic friends, ‘We are the storm, baby, we are the thunder,’” said Steve Linder, whose business is planning all events for the Michigan delega-

tion. Linder added, smiling, “and it ain’t gonna stop until November.” Scott said during a media briefing that delegates were being told how to stay safe during a storm, and officials were ready for storm surge, bridge closures and other problems that could arise during the convention. He also said he was in close communication with local, state and federal agencies, as well as convention officials. “We are a hospitality state. We know how to take care of people and we want to ensure their safety,” the governor said. Isaac was blamed for at least three deaths after dousing flood-prone Haiti and was expected to scrape eastern Cuba on Saturday. It was forecast to hit the Keys late today or early Monday, and it then could bring stormy conditions to Florida’s west coast before moving to the Panhandle.

Airline crews to passengers: You can’t wear that By David Koenig Associated Press

DALLAS — Airlines give many reasons for refusing to let you board, but none stir as much debate as this: how you’re dressed. A woman flying from Las Vegas on Southwest this spring says she was confronted by an airline employee for showing too much cleavage. In another recent case, an American Airlines pilot lectured a passenger because her Tshirt bore a four-letter expletive. She was allowed to keep flying after draping a

shawl over the shirt. Both women told their stories to sympathetic bloggers, and the debate over what you can wear in the air went viral. It’s not always clear what’s appropriate. Airlines don’t publish dress codes. There are no rules that spell out the highest hemline or the lowest neckline allowed. That can leave passengers guessing how far to push fashion boundaries. Every once in a while the airline says: Not that far. “It’s like any service business. If you run a family restaurant and somebody

is swearing, you kindly ask them to leave,” said Kenneth Quinn, an aviation lawyer and former chief counsel at the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration. The American Airlines passenger, who declined to be interviewed by The Associated Press, works for an abortion provider. Supporters suggested that she was singled out because her T-shirt had a pro-choice slogan. A spokesman for American said the passenger was asked to cover up “because of the F-word on the Tshirt.” He says that the air-

line isn’t taking sides in the abortion debate. Last week, Arijit Guha, a graduate student at Arizona State University, was barred from a Delta flight in Buffalo, N.Y., because of a T-shirt that mocked federal security agents and included the words, “Terrists gonna kill us all.” He says the misspelled shirt was satirical and he wore it to protest what he considers racial profiling. “I thought it was a very American idea to speak up and dissent when you think people’s rights are being violated,” Guha said.

The pilot thought it scared other passengers. American and Delta are within their rights to make the passengers change shirts even if messages are political, said Joe Larsen, a First Amendment lawyer from Houston who has defended many media companies. The First Amendment prohibits government from limiting a person’s freespeech rights, but it doesn’t apply to rules set by private companies, Larsen said. He notes that government security screeners didn’t challenge Guha; private Delta employees did.
