New state law nullifies city’s knife ordinance ———

Lawrence had banned the carrying of certain types of sharp weapons By Chad Lawhorn clawhorn@ljworld.com

TRAFFIC MOVES ALONG 23RD AND IOWA STREETS on Monday as crews began a construction project at the city’s busiest intersection. The work is expected to last until mid-November. The approximately $3.7 million project include dual left-turn lanes at all approaches, which should reduce the time motorists have to wait to make a turn; shorter right-turn lanes that are designed to slow down right turns and improve the safety of merging vehicles; and improved aesthetics for the intersection.

School district offers modified tenure, pay raise By Peter Hancock phancock@ljworld.com

Despite growing financial pressures, negotiators for the Lawrence school district put slightly more than $1 million of new money on the table Monday night to fund pay raises and to absorb the rising cost of health benefits. But the district said it is not willing to go as far as teachers had requested in fully restoring the admin-

istrative due process rights for tenured teachers, rights which for decades had been guaranteed by statute until the Kansas Legislature revoked them earlier this year. SCHOOLS Instead, district officials proposed giving teachers the same administrative due process rights that school admin-

istrators still enjoy under statute, which is to appeal a firing or non-renewal of a contract to the school board rather than an independent hearing officer. “We believe that’s where the decision-making authority resides, with the board of education,” said David Cunningham, director of legal services for the district. In April, Kansas lawmakers passed a bill that repeals tenure rights for K-12 teachers, although the rights will

still apply to community college and technical school instructors. That measure was added late in the session to a school funding bill that was aimed at responding to a recent Kansas Supreme Court ruling. Since then, it has ignited protests among teachers and other public school advocates, and teachers unions have vowed to make it a central issue in the upcoming Please see SCHOOL, page 5A

A pair of stiletto heels may not be the only accessory at clubs in Lawrence in the near future. Bar-goers soon will be free to bring their stiletto knives — plus daggers, dirks, and even something called a slungshot — to drinking establishments and any other place in the city. Lawrence city commissioners tonight will hear that a new state law that goes into effect July 1 will nullify a longstanding city ordinance that has made it illegal for people to carry certain types of knives within the city limits. The law change was part of a bill aimed at creating a uniform set of regulations for firearms and knives across Kansas. CITY “The state has made it clear COMMISSION that it will pre-empt all firearms issues,” said Maria Kaminska, an assistant city attorney who has reviewed the new law. She said the law would create a few changes for the city. l A city law that made it illegal to carry a “dagger, dirk, billy, blackjack, slungshot, danger knife, straight-edged razor, stiletto” or other such weapons should be repealed because the new law explicitly states cities don’t have the authority to have such local prohibitions. (A slungshot, by the way, is a weapon involving a string and a leaded weight, according to several websites.) Please see KNIFE, page 5A

‘It’s pretty neat watching them grow’

TANK FOLLOWS LUCY AS THE TWO SKIP AND GLIDE along the sidewalk in front of their housing complex in East Lawrence before heading to boxing practice on April 7.

and everybody marvels at their athleticism. Mother Melissa Hardy started taking Lucy and Cyrenity to the boxing club so they could learn to defend themselves as they grow up without a father involved in their lives. Riley, who runs the boxing club three days a week, said he doesn’t usually train children younger than 8, but these girls were an exception because they pay attention, work hard and always have a positive attitude. “It’s pretty cool having the little ones,” Jacobs said. “I enjoy working with the kids because they don’t come in with preconceived notions. …With them, you just show them what to do, and they do it. They still develop bad habits, but they correct them right away. It’s fun. I like working with them.” Lucy is one of the top cross country runners in the state for her age, running about eight minutes per mile in 5- and 10-kilometer races. At the Double Road Race in Overland Park last year, she finished 239th out of 359 participants. She was the only girl younger than 18 in the race. Cyrenity, whose nickname is Tank, also runs cross country, but she throws the harder punches in the gym. “She always ate,” Hardy said. “She would never get full, so I started to give her table food at 3 months. She got real chunky, so we all called her Tank, and it’s always stuck with her since.” Lucy and Tank weigh less than 60 pounds and are still too young even to put on their boxing gloves by themselves. They never fight at home and cried when they had to spar with each other during workouts. That doesn’t mean they’re opposed to fighting other people in the ring. Tank sparred with a 6-year-old boy at the Maximus Fitness and Wellness Club in Topeka in midApril. It was three, one-minute rounds. Hardy keeps a video on her cellphone. “When I’m doing mitts with them, you know, normally you kind of hit them, and I’ll hit them a little too hard and be like, ‘Oh, no! What am I doing?’ That’s once in a great while that I do that,” Ja-

MELISSA HARDY gives her daughter Lucy encouragement after adjusting her bandana during a break from practice on March 1 at the Haskell Boxing Club.

THE TWO SISTERS, LUCY, LEFT, AND TANK lean up against the ropes as they eagerly wait to work out with the mitts, their favorite part of practice, on April 1 at the Haskell Boxing Club.

See the slideshow online at LJWorld.com/boxers cobs said. “As far as their growth as fighters, being in the gym, is amazing from where they’re at now.” Jacobs has twin boys, Marcus and Maurice, who started boxing at the gym when they were 9. They are now seniors at Free State High. The two young girls are a little more advanced than the boys were at the same age, but they remind Jacobs of his boys. “It’s pretty neat watching them grow, watching them learn,” Jacobs said. “They’re really nice little kids. I like being around them.” At the end of the workouts, Riley gets the boxers together for sprints, pushups and other drills. The two girls are usually the last ones still running at full speed by the end, to the surprise of nobody. “They do everything together,” Hardy said. “Everything.”

TRAINER DARREN JACOBS pulls Lucy in for a hug after working with the mitts on April 1. “We consider ourselves to be a big Haskell family,” Jacobs said. “We’ve never dealt with any other little girls before. Tank and Lucy, I love those two.” TANK, LEFT, WAITS HER TURN as Lucy practices throwing punches with trainer Erik Riley on March 1 at the Haskell Boxing Club.


LAWRENCE • STATE

Knife

Legislature.� Mayor Mike Amyx said he also didn’t like that the Legislature was taking away the city’s ability to regulate such issues. “I’m always of the opinion that decisions that impact Lawrence are better made locally than in Topeka,� Amyx said. City commissioners at their Tuesday meeting will have one decision to make: Whether to post another no guns sign at City Hall and other city buildings. This sign would prohibit people from openly carrying a weapon into city buildings. Open carry refers to people who carry a weapon in plain view. Unlike concealed carry, no state license is required for individuals to carry openly. Kaminska said the city currently does not have any regulations related to open carry. The new state law removes a city’s ability to regulate open carry, except local governments can post a sign prohibiting the open carrying of firearms in public buildings. The current no guns sign on public buildings only makes it illegal for concealed carry licensees to bring a concealed weapon onto the premises. Commissioners meet at 6:35 p.m. tonight at City Hall.

CONTINUED FROM PAGE 3A

l A city ordinance prohibiting people from bringing a concealed firearm into any city drinking establishment or onto public property adjacent to a drinking establishment also should be repealed, Kaminska said. She said it was possible state law already had nullified that local ordinance, but she said the new law leaves no question that the city can’t enforce such an ordinance. Bar owners, just like other business owners, can decide to post the official no guns sign at their entrance, which still makes it illegal for concealed carry license holders to bring concealed weapons into the establishment. Kaminska said the police department has used the local law related to knives to cite individuals in the past, but didn’t have numbers on how often it had been used. At least some bar owners said they were disappointed the city could no longer regulate the issue. “I guess it doesn’t matter until somebody uses one,� Jerry Neverve, owner of the Red Lyon Tavern downtown, said of the knife restrictions. “In — City reporter Chad Lawhorn can my opinion, it is just more wackiness from be reached at 832-6362.

don’t know how often it will happen,� said Mayor Mike Amyx. “But we are in the business of selling water, and we have to sell the best product we can.� In the past, significant numbers of Lawrence residents have complained about the water having an earthy or musty taste and smell. The issue has arisen when Clinton Lake or the Kansas River have had high levels of algae, which emit geosmin or other algae byproducts. But the last significant outbreak was in June 2012, said Dave Wagner, the city’s director of utilities. He said staff at the city’s two water treatment plants now monitor the water closely for signs of algae

spikes. He said the city has seen some elevated levels over the last year, but treatment processes have caused it to be undetectable to most people. City officials last year, however, spent $137,000 to hire a consultant to study more advanced ways of addressing the taste and odor issues. The report by Burns & McDonnell recommends $5.8 million in improvements to the Clinton Lake and Kaw Water Treatment plants and then suggests waiting to see whether the additional $11 million in improvements are needed. “We’re hopeful the phase one improvements will take care of it,� said Jeanette Klamm, a management analyst for the city’s utilities department.

A Lenexa man died Monday after the car he was driving left the roadway and rolled in Jefferson County, according to a report from the Kansas Highway Patrol.

Topeka teen dies after graduation Officials of a Topeka school district say a teen-

elections for governor and the Kansas House of Representatives. Cunningham, however, said the Lawrence school district has several procedures in place to ensure that employment decisions are made fairly. Those include a new evaluation system — which was also the subject of considerable discussion Monday night — as well as evaluation systems for principals and other administrators who make hiring and firing decisions. “The Board of Education is the body statutorily charged with making employment decisions,� district officials stated in a memo outlining their position. “While the manner in which it occurred is suspect, the result of the Legislature’s recent action is to restore to the Board that

right and obligation.� At an earlier negotiating session, negotiators for the Lawrence Education Association had proposed lifting the language in the current due process statute and inserting it directly into the local contract. LEA officials did not respond Monday night to the district’s proposal. But David Reber, lead negotiator for the local teachers, compared it to putting “the fox in charge of the hen house,� saying teachers would have to appeal to a body that had already made up its mind. Meanwhile, the district did offer to raise every teacher’s base pay by $600 a year, and to fully fund the so-called “step increases� they receive for additional years of experience and additional college degrees. That would amount to an average 1.6 percent pay raise for teachers and would cost the district an estimated $711,347 next year. The district also offered to absorb an estimated 6.1

percent increase in the cost of fringe benefits by continuing to pay the full cost of employee health insurance, for a cost of $296,143. But district negotiators acknowledged those moves may be unsustainable in the future. Unlike most districts in Kansas, they said, Lawrence will see a net loss in state funding of $1.7 million as a result of the school finance bill that lawmakers passed. And while the district can restore some of that — about $1.4 million — by raising its local option budget, that would only be good for one year, unless voters in the district vote during the upcoming school year to extend the increase in local property taxes. The two sides are scheduled to meet again in two weeks, on Monday, June 2.

the increase depends on the type of water user. Here’s a look at some scenarios, based on information provided by the city: l Single-family residents who use 6,000 gallons of water a month would see their bills increase to $32.27, up from $30.31 currently. That’s an increase of 6.4 percent. For people who use 20,000 gallons per month — such as for lawn irrigation — the percentage increase is about 6.7 percent. l Most residents of apartment complexes would see a decline in the water bill. A multifamily user of 6,000 gallons would pay $22.55 compared with $23.23 today. City officials explained the city’s rate modeling plan showed multifamily users were due for a decline because their usage of the system was not creating much peak demand for

the system. l The owner of a commercial business that uses 300 gallons per month would have a water bill of $1,207, up from $1,092 currently. That’s an increase of 10.5 percent. l An industrial user of 2,500 gallons would have a water bill of $8,498, up from $7,872. That’s an increase of 7.9 percent. Wagner said even if city commissioners decide not to pursue the taste and odor improvements there would be a rate increase for 2015 to help pay for other capital improvement projects for the water system. But he did not have information on how much lower the rate increase would be. Wagner also cautioned that the department can’t guarantee that any treatment system will entirely address the taste and odor

issue. “But we’re certain that what is proposed will help us do a better job than what we do today,� he said. In addition to the water rates, commissioners also will be asked to approve new sewer rates for 2015. The proposed sewer rate increases are closer to 4 percent, in most cases. When the water and sewer bills are combined, the city projects the average residential customer would see monthly bills rise between 4 percent to 5 percent. Multifamily users would see combined increases of 1.3 percent to 3.3 percent, commercial users 6.8 percent to 6.9 percent, and industrial users 5.7 percent. Commissioners meet at 6:35 p.m. tonight at City Hall.

spearhead a new center to develop vaccines that will pull together existing resources and expertise, and be the focus of four new hires in the pharmacy and engineering schools. Much of Picking’s research looks at the molecular mechanisms pathogens use to take over healthy cells and cause disease. When he started his own research program as a professor, Picking hit the books to find a pathogen to investigate. He began studying Shigella, a bacterium that attacks the digestive system. He looked at Shigella partly because it is a scourge in developing countries, killing many thousands of people every year, and partly because “everyone and his dog was working on salmonella,â€? another deadly disease-causing agent. Picking and collaborators honed in on the protein Shigella uses to trick human cells into letting the pathogen in. He hopes to make that protein the base of a new vaccine to inoculate people against the bacteria. That will be one of Picking’s priorities for the new vaccine center, dubbed the Kansas Vaccine Development Center. The center will make use of the existing Macromolecular and Vaccine Stabilization Center, headed by distinguished professor of pharmaceutical chemistry David Volkin, and involve partnerships across KU’s campuses and with Kansas State University. Christian SchĂśneich, a distinguished professor and department chair of pharmaceutical chemistry at KU, said creating the center was one of the main reasons for pursuing Picking as a Foundation Professor. “We knew him, he’s an excellent scientist, he has a nice personality,â€? SchĂśneich said. “We thought he would be a great fit.â€? Also re-joining KU will be Picking’s wife, Wendy, who will come on board as a professor of pharmaceutical chemistry. Like Picking, Wendy earned her Ph.D. from KU, where they met. Also like Picking, she’s spent much of her career studying the Shigella bacteria. At Oklahoma State the two worked in adjacent laboratories and frequently collaborated, authoring several papers together. For Picking, the move to Kansas is a kind of homecoming, but one that will allow him to keep pushing forward the research he launched while in Oklahoma. That opportunity made for an easy choice to come to KU, Picking said. “There wasn’t much decision making to be done.â€?

$10M missing from credit union Fired employee believed to have embezzled deposits, documents show By Roxana Hegeman Associated Press

Wichita — A fired ParsonsPittsburg Credit Union employee is believed to have embezzled $10 million in missing deposits from the now defunct operation and gambled away much of the money, recently released court documents show. The filings last week in U.S. District Court in Kansas reveal for the first time the magnitude of losses that led the Kansas Department of Credit Unions in January to place the state-chartered credit union into conservatorship. It ultimately found it insolvent and liquidated it in March, with another credit union assuming operations. It remains unclear how so much money could have disappeared without authorities noticing sooner. Department administrator John Smith said Monday that the credit union submitted incorrect data about

accounts that regulators didn’t know existed. He said a forensic audit is underway to determine how it was done. “A loss of this size is painful to us,” Smith said. “It looks like we are not doing our job. That is not the case.” Authorities are scrambling to seize whatever assets they can find. An April raid at the suspect’s home netted two cashier’s checks totaling $130,000, gold coins, silver coins, a Prada handbag, a vehicle, documents showing the purchase of U.S. savings bonds, and other paperwork. The Associated Press is not naming the ex-worker because no criminal charges have been filed. The suspect’s phone has been disconnected and a spokesman for the U.S. attorney’s office said he did not know whether a defense attorney has been retained. The National Credit Union Association began an unannounced

examination of the credit union in January and interviewed the suspect about gambling activities. Examiners eventually found that about $10 million in nonmember deposits were missing, an FBI special agent said in the court documents. The deposits were made by other financial institutions into the Parsons-Pittsburg Credit Union account at Kansas Corporate Credit Union. Examiners found the majority of the missing deposits were diverted from the credit union accounts to other accounts controlled by the suspect, according to the filing. The FBI found the employee and the employee’s spouse did not have any income that would explain the amount they spent at casinos in Oklahoma and Missouri during the past two years. A review of casino records filed between Jan. 20 and March 13 showed the former employee inserted $192,269 into gambling devices at casinos in Oklaho-

ma and Missouri, and received $57,500 in cash payouts, court documents show. Parsons-Pittsburg Credit Union, established in 1951, had 1,466 members and $13.4 million in assets when it was liquidated. All the losses were federally insured. Golden Plains Credit Union of Garden City — with its 59,413 members and $418 million in assets — took over operations in March. As a larger entity, Golden Plains has more people to oversee accounting and reconciliation activities, said Erich Schaefer, member president for Golden Plains. “But in a small credit union sometimes those things can occur without the checks and balances of a larger staff,” Schaefer said Monday. “A smaller credit union, or any kind of a financial institution that is small, has a limited staff. That can have an effect on the amount of dual control that is available.”

The winning ticket matched the first five numbers drawn Saturday, which were 23-32-39-4749. The Powerball was 22. The player also purchased a Power Play option which doubled the prize from $1 million to $2 million. No ticket sold matched all the numbers in drawing. The jackpot for Wednesday’s drawing will be an estimated $114 million.

Family of Kansas baby seeks food she can tolerate Associated Press

Topeka — The family of a northeast Kansas baby with a rare digestive disorder is trying to find something she can eat besides a bland-tasting medical food that’s mixed with water, but so far the only thing she can tolerate is squash. Anything else Maehlee Her eats makes her sick, the result of white blood cells in her esophagus mistaking food for a foreign invader and trying to fight it off, said her mother, Marci Flory. The 1-year-old fell ill soon after being born in April 2013, vomiting nonstop and screaming 24 hours a day, Flory told The Topeka Capital-Journal. A

doctor suggested the baby had colic or acid reflux, but it wasn’t colic and three prescriptions for acid reflux didn’t help. “I told them I didn’t know what to do,” Flory said. “‘She hasn’t eaten for 15 hours. You feed her.’” Flory took the girl to Children’s Mercy Hospital in Kansas City, Mo., where doctors found white patches in her throat and a biopsy showed high levels of white blood cells. Doctors said Maehlee had eosinophilic esophagitis, a digestive disorder. They told Flory and Kao Her, Maehlee’s father, to take her off all food and put her on Elecare, an amino acidbased medical food.

At first Maehlee had to consume the Elecare through a feeding tube that ran through her nose and into her stomach. Eventually she started drinking the medical food — which Flory said has a nasty flavor — from a bottle. “It tastes like cardboard,” Flory said. “It’s the most disgusting stuff I’ve ever tasted.” Maehlee now is undergoing a series of food trials in which she tries one food at a time to see if it spurs the disorder. In the first trial, she ate white potatoes, apples and bananas, and her parents are awaiting results of her latest endoscopy exam. The goal is to be able to find enough foods that she can safe-

ly eat and not have to have the medical food, Flory said. So far, squash is the only thing on that list. While the Eudora family’s insurance has paid for Maehlee’s doctor’s appointments, a hospital admission and endoscopy exams, it doesn’t cover the $600 to $900 a month cost for medical food. Meanwhile, the girl’s parents hide their own eating from their daughter because she wants to have what they’re eating. “We have to hide it from her, which is not very fair,” Flory said. “With all the appointments, it’s a struggle to keep her feeling good every day and to keep up with all our everyday business.”

Green energy attacks repelled, for now Associated Press

Kansas City, Mo. — State government mandates requiring utilities to buy a certain portion of their power from renewable resources are coming under fire across the U.S., but so far legislatures have been able to turn back efforts to repeal them. Industry observers believe Kansas came as close to any state to repealing the rules before the state House procedurally blocked — by just three votes — a repeal measure the Senate had supported. Twenty-nine states have renewable energy mandates, while bills weakening or repealing the requirements came up in at least nine of them, including Missouri and Kansas. No states, even staunchly red ones like Kansas, have repealed the regulations requiring utilities to use renewable energies such as wind or solar for power. But well-funded conservative groups such as Americans for Prosperity continue to hammer away at the mandates, which they say increase costs for utilities and taxpayers. “I can’t think of an industry that is better connected politically in getting favors from the state and federal government than wind energy, ethanol and all the green energies,” said Christine Harbin Hanson, national issues manager for the heavy-hitting AFP. Kansas lawmakers for three years have refused to eliminate the mandate. The state ranks sixth in the amount of electricity generated by wind last year and is evolving into the epicenter of the national debate over energy standards. “Folks on all sides are watching Kansas closely,” said Kimberly Svaty, who lobbies for the wind industry. AFP and the Kansas Senior Consumer Alliance — whose lobbyist was a former state AFP director — spent more than $300,000 trying to repeal the standards this legislative session. On the other side, the Wind Coalition and Wind Works for Kansas spent about $60,000. Statewide, wind farms make roughly $8 million in lease payments each year to landowners. “Wind energy is very important to my district. They are generating a lot of money,” said state Rep. Ron Ryckman Sr., a conservative Meade Republican whose county has four wind farms that paid southwest Kansas county governments a total of $1.2 million last year. “It was a no-brainer for me to help protect the district.”

Westar explores offering prepaid electric service Associated Press

Wichita — Customers of the state’s largest electric utility will be able to pay in advance for electricity under a pilot program awaiting approval from Kansas regulators. Westar Energy hopes to start offering prepaid service to 1,000 customers by the end of the month to determine whether the service is feasible, popular and fair, company and state officials said. Initial participants will include as many as 250 customers who have fallen behind on their bills, state documents show, and the other 750 will be a mix of new customers or ongoing consumers who want a different option for paying their bills, The Wichita Eagle reported. All of them will be volunteers. The Kansas Corporation Commission has until May 29 to approve or deny the plan, but approval is likely because all of the parties have agreed to it. Prepaid service is possible because of Westar’s rollout of advanced digital meters that allow the company to turn on and shut off a customer’s power from a central location without

sending out a crew. “Some customers would prefer to prepay on their payday, just making it a little bit easier to manage their household budget,” said Gina Penzig, Westar’s director of corporate communications. College students also might find the prepay option useful because they often need service for only a limited time and may split utility costs among roommates, Penzig said. Also, there will be no security deposits on prepay accounts or charges to disconnect the service, and the reconnection fee would be just $5. The Citizens’ Utility Ratepayer Board, which represents consumer interests at the Kansas Corporation Commission, initially had serious concerns about the proposal, mainly that Westar would try to force consumers who have problems paying their monthly bills to prepay, said David Springe, CURB’s chief consumer counsel. CURB also was concerned about how the program would work with the state’s Cold Weather Rule, which generally prohibits utility shutoffs in the winter when customers fall behind on their bills, Springe said.

Salute to grads Graduation from both high school and college is a transition filled with challenges and opportunities.

I

t is graduation time at area high schools, colleges and universities, a time to celebrate the end of one chapter and the beginning of another. More than 4,000 students graduated Sunday from Kansas University, and 154 graduated Saturday from Baker University. Another 180 students graduated May 9 from Haskell Indian Nations University. Veritas Christian High School students graduated Sunday. Free State High School seniors graduate tonight, Lawrence High School graduation is Wednesday, and Bishop Seabury Academy students graduate Friday. It takes resolve and perseverance to complete the requirements to graduate, both high school and college. This month’s graduates will need both. Consider: The average college graduate has nearly $30,000 in student loan debt and faces a difficult job market, a recent study by the Federal Reserve Bank of New York found. The study showed that the number of recent college graduates who were underemployed — working in jobs that did not require a degree — has reached a two-decade high of 44 percent. High school graduates face many options for the future. College tuition and fees that have never been higher, and continued state funding cuts mean the upward spiral likely will continue, at least in the next four years. A shrinking military means fewer opportunities to serve and stricter requirements. Associate’s degrees or vocational certificate programs may be a good option for some high school graduates. Prospects for entering the workforce without additional training are grim. The unemployment rate among those with just a high school diploma is twice that of college graduates, and the lifetime earning power is nearly $1 million less, data from the U.S. Census Bureau show. Sobering as such statistics may be, it’s important to remember that numbers and data do not define lives — individuals do. Armed with the optimism of youth and their recently acquired diplomas and degrees, this year’s graduates are as ready as any to take on the challenges ahead. Past and future generations have and will overcome worse. Our advice to graduates is to work hard, take risks and enjoy the experiences ahead. Make note of your graduation and the people who shared it with you. It’s one of those moments in life meant to be savored. Congratulations to all of the 2014 graduates and best wishes for the future.

Past, present draw writer to Ukraine In 1905, my grandparents fled a village near Rovno in the Russian Ukraine so my grandfather wouldn’t be drafted into the czar’s army. Jews were being pressed into military service for 25 years, he told me, which was all the more reason to escape the hardship and anti-Semitism of rural Russia. He was often nostalgic, not for Ukraine or Russia, but for the smells of the forest where he had worked to cut down trees. For many reasons I never felt drawn to seek out that village, despite several visits to the Soviet Union and Russia, and two to Ukraine in the 1990s. Probably the Nazis had destroyed it, and independent Ukraine was struggling: The country’s 2005 Orange revolution, meant to liberate it from lingering Russian-style corruption, fizzled badly. The country was not on my radar screen. But suddenly, Ukraine has become the most fascinating country on the European continent, the test case for whether the seven peaceful decades after World War II were an anomaly rather than a permanent norm. So this week I will finally be traveling around Ukraine, not to revisit my family’s past, but to explore whether Europe faces a frightening future. Have we really reentered an era where borders of major countries can be changed by their neighbors through invasion or subversion? Vladimir Putin’s rush to recreate the Russian empire by seizing Crimea and destabilizing eastern Ukraine raises questions that were supposedly resolved by the Second World War. I’ll be looking at whether

I’ll be looking at whether Ukraine can hold together under unrelenting Russian military and economic pressure, and what it will mean if that pressure fractures the country.” Ukraine can hold together under unrelenting Russian military and economic pressure and what it will mean if that pressure fractures the country. It’s already clear that the story is far more complicated than the Russian narrative would have it. Yes, the Russian speakers of eastern Ukraine, who have close economic and family ties with nearby Russia, feel alienated from the Kiev government that they believe ignores them. Yet — and this is something I want to explore — repeated polls show that the vast majority of Russian speakers in Ukraine do not want to become part of Russia. They want something else. Their fears of persecution by Kiev have been whipped up by Russian television stations, which are universally watched in eastern Ukraine. These shows portray Kiev in the grip of fascists and Nazis who threaten the eastern re-

gions. In reality, the Ukrainian far right at the moment, while sometimes unpleasant, is less anti-Semitic and xenophobic than the Russian far right. So one key question is whether the Kiev government can do more to counteract Russian propaganda and convince Russian speakers in the east that Kiev is listening. This is something I will be asking officials in Kiev as they draft a plan to decentralize Ukraine’s regions and give more power to local governments. Of course, Putin will do everything in his power to undermine such outreach, and is threatening to undermine Ukrainian elections on May 25. In his new version of nationalism, the Russian leader has proclaimed himself the protector of Russian speakers everywhere, whether in Latvia or oil-rich Kazakhstan or beyond. Perhaps he wants to protect the 20 percent of Israelis who speak Russian. There’s no telling where this could lead. Putin is also promoting cultural warfare, posing as the bulwark of Russianled Orthodox civilization against the weak and dissolute West led by the United States. Ukraine is split between its Catholic west, which looks toward Europe, and a Russia-leaning eastern Orthodox half, so many observers have accepted Putin’s framework. But — and I also want to check this in my travels — the “war of civilizations” trope is nonsense, I believe. The real divide in Ukraine, I suspect, is between a younger generation that wants a transparent economy and connections to the world, and an older gen-

eration that yearns for the remembered “security” of a closed Soviet Union. The sad truth is that the corrupt, oil-based economy of Putin’s Russia can’t offer older Ukrainians the cushion they dream of. If their country devolves into civil war, the industrialized half that goes with Russia will be doomed to economic stagnation. In Kiev, I will attend a fascinating conference in which historians, writers and academics from Ukraine, Europe, Russia and America will be hashing over these questions. I will interview civic activists whose protests led to the downfall of the pro-Russian president, Viktor Yanukovych, in February, and ask them how they think their country can move forward. I will interview right-wing Ukrainian nationalists, whose modest strength is vastly overrated by pro-Russians, and Ukrainian separatists in the east, whose modest strength is magnified by covert Russian military support. The operative question: Can Ukraine push past extremists on both sides, or will Russia make this impossible? I will be looking at whether, with more outreach from Kiev and tougher Western sanctions, Ukraine can be saved from an implosion with its dangerous repercussions on Europe. And I will be talking to Jewish community leaders, in part to learn what my life would have been like if my grandparents had remained in Rovno, my family had survived Hitler, and I had grown up in Ukraine.

To the editor: By law, the state of Kansas must have a balanced budget every year. In the past few years, that has become more difficult because tax reductions have not been matched with spending reductions. So, how has the balanced budget been achieved in Kansas? Our Legislature has turned to the Bank of KDOT. Yes, hundreds of millions of dollars have been transferred from the Kansas Department of Transportation to the state general fund. Because KDOT has its own bonding authority, new longterm bonds can be issued. Are you surprised to learn that some of KDOTbonded debt extends to the year 2036? Are you surprised to learn that annual debt service on KDOT bonds exceeds what is spent on local road maintenance? In the most recent figures I could find from January 2012, KDOT bonded debt exceeds $2.4 billion. Our children and grandchildren will inherit the debt we are accumulating. In Kansas we only have the appearance of a balanced budget thanks to the Bank of KDOT. Wake up, Kansans! Jerry Niebaum, Lawrence

continue to not fund our flagship university? At last count, Endowment has somewhere around $1 billion in the bank.

Pay to ride To the editor: Why do the majority of the people who don’t ride bikes have to pay taxes for new bike lanes? My mother came from Europe, where bicycles are licensed and that money was used for the bike lanes. This is only fair, the ones that use them pay for them. Deb Hercha, Lawrence

Chicken history

To the editor: In response to the statement that appeared in Thursday’s Journal-World, “Kansas officials blame a persistent drought and argue that wetter weather will restore lesser prairie chicken habitats and cause their numbers to rebound,” I offer the following excerpts from “Birds of Kansas,” a 1945 report of the Kansas Department of Agriculture To the editor: by Arthur L. Goodrich, Ph.D., Kansas I’m confused! How can Kansas Uni- State College: versity Endowment sit on the sidelines “Now found in diminishing numwhile Gov.

dominant element of the Great Plains wildlife. Once common throughout southern and western Kansas, it is becoming quite rare. “Those who have been so fortunate as to have witnessed the gathering of these birds in open fields following the last spring snows have seen some of the most remarkable courtship behavior in the bird world. “The western equivalent of the eastern Heath Hen (now extinct), the prairie chicken has likewise suffered from the advent of the white man. Proper conservation methods bid fair to permit this bird to increase and hold its own against mankind, at least in certain areas.” It is evident from this report written nearly 70 years ago that steady declines in prairie chicken populations have been documented long-term, and this confirms causes that are decidedly more complex, and perhaps troubling, than passing it all off on the most recent drought. It does not inspire confidence, or bode well for prairie chickens, for Kansas “officials” to feed the public simple and erroneous claims to the contrary. Scott Campbell, Lawrence

It’s the final step to be truly a family. Everyone else takes for granted that they have this right.” — Patty Reagan, waiting to get marriage license gene and a federal appeals court rejected its attempts to argue in favor of the ban. Many county clerks in the state began carrying out same-sex marriages almost immediately after

Monday’s ruling, as jubilant couples rushed to tie the knot. “It’s the final step to be truly a family,” said Patty Reagan, who waited in line in Portland to get a marriage license with partner Kelly. “Everyone else takes for granted that they have this right.” McShane joins judges in seven other states who have overturned same-sex marriage bans, though appeals are underway. Lower-court judges have repeatedly cited last year’s Supreme Court ruling when striking down bans.

Portland, Ore. (ap) — A federal judge threw out Oregon’s same-sex marriage ban Monday, marking the 13th legal victory for gay marriage advocates since the U.S. Supreme Court last year overturned part of a federal ban. State officials earlier refused to defend Oregon’s voter-approved ban and said they wouldn’t appeal.

Hunters join search for missing girls Maiduguri, Nigeria — Traditional hunters armed with homemade guns, poisoned spears and amulets have gathered in the hundreds, eager to use their skills and what they believe to be supernatural powers to help find nearly 300 schoolgirls abducted by Islamic extremists. Some 500 hunters, some as young as 18 and some in their 80s, say they have been specially selected by their peers for their spiritual hunting skills and have been waiting for two weeks in Maiduguri, the Borno state capital and the birthplace of Boko Haram, to get backing from the military and get moving. Cow horn trumpets echoed eerie war cries from the screaming and chanting men as they twirled knives and swords with dexterity, occasionally stabbing and cutting themselves with no apparent harm. The hunters claimed their magic charms prevented any blood being drawn. They also trust amulets of herbs and other substances wrapped in leather pouches as well as cowrie shells, animal teeth and leather bracelets to protect them from bullets. The appearance of the hunters from three northeastern states underscores how deeply the April 15 mass kidnapping — and the government’s apparent lack of action — has affected Nigerian society.

THE NATURAL WAY

Health services multiply economic kickback By Janice Early Special to the Journal-World

Richard Gwin/Journal-World Photo

NURSE MIDWIFE KAREN HONN visits with new parents Ryan and Rebekah Cantrell and their baby, Savannah, at Lawrence Memorial Hospital earlier this month. The Cantrells, of Lawrence, used a midwife to have a natural birth. Midwives are increasing in popularity in Lawrence and across the nation.

More than 15 percent of Lawrence moms give birth with the help of midwives By Giles Bruce Twitter: @GilesBruce

T

wo days after giving birth to her first child, Rebekah Cantrell looked refreshed. She was up and out of bed, smiling and talking to visitors. She said her delivery went “phenomenal.” Baby Savannah was awake, too, squinting her eyes and wiggling her skinny toes. Cantrell credited her good spirits to having a natural birth. She didn’t get induced or take any pain medication during labor. She used a midwife instead of a doctor. But to placate her husband, Ryan, she did it in a hospital setting, to have medical professionals and technology nearby in case of an emergency. It’s an option that’s now available to women in Lawrence 24/7. A year and a half after adding its first nurse midwife,

Lawrence Memorial Hospital now has three, meaning that one is always on call. Whereas in the past, women who wanted to deliver with a midwife at LMH may have had to use a doctor, that’s no longer the case.

Popularity grows Midwifery is no longer just the domain of hippie chicks. Midwives delivered 11.8 percent of all vaginal births in the U.S. in 2012, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. That number has risen nearly ever year since the government began tracking that data in 1989. While nine out of every 10 of midwife births occur in hospitals, midwives also commonly deliver in standalone birthing centers or people’s homes. However, a recent study by New York-Presbyterian/ Weill Cornell Medical Center that analyzed the CDC data found the risk

of death to be greater when midwives delivered babies at home (12.6 deaths per 10,000 births) compared to a hospital setting (3.2 per 10,000 births). In Lawrence, the rate of midwife births is significantly higher than the national average, local midwives say. Sixty-five women used a nurse midwife for their births at LMH from January through April, representing about 15 percent of the mothers who delivered at the hospital in that time. The LMH midwives have 22 births scheduled for August, their most ever. “We’re starting to see a significant shift,” said LMH ob-gyn practice director Linda Easum. “We’ve had previous patients delivered by physicians who are choosing in their next delivery to possibly transition to midwifery. Our goal is just to treat the patient no matter what type of provider they want.”

Natural benefits The LMH nurse midwives, who each work under the supervision of a physician, help patients execute the birth plans of their choice. They have longer appointments than regular doctors because they spend so much time educating mothers about the birthing process. They also do well woman exams and contraception checks. “I think the misconception out there is that our patients can’t have epidurals or can’t have medical interventions and we deliver our patients at home. That’s not what we do here,” said nurse midwife Karen Honn, who started at LMH in January. “We’re here to help people have that natural birth experience in the safety of a hospital and have that backup there in case of an emergency.”

NATURAL BIRTHING TIPS 1. Get up and move around to help the baby navigate the pelvis. 2. Sit in a jacuzzi tub. 3. Turn the lights off. 4. Have your partner rub your back. 5. Sit on a birthing ball. 6. Change positions. 7. Try hypnobirthing, or focusing on the natural process that childbirth is, rather than something to be feared.

This past week, staff at Lawrence Memorial Hospital joined hospitals across the country in celebrating National Hospital Week. This annual observance recognizes the men and women who, day in and day out, remain committed to improving the health of their communities through compassionate care, constant innovation and unwavering dedication. Celebrated since 1921 — which coincidentally was the year LMH was founded — National Hospital Week is a time dedicated to reinforcing the valuable contributions hospitals make in our communities. In Kansas, LMH is one of 128 community hospitals that provide vital health care services 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year. Annually, Kansas hospitals staff nearly 12,000 beds; see more than 313,000 inpatients; assist in more than 39,000 births; provide care during more than 7.4 million outpatient visits; and treat more than 1.1 million patients in Kansas emergency departments. Locally, at 173-bed LMH, last year staff saw 6,661 inpatients; assisted with 1,132 births; provided care during 160,733 outpatient visits; and treated 37,678 emergency patients. Not only do Kansas hospitals serve thousands of individuals, keeping our communities healthy, strong and vibrant, but hospitals also benefit the financial health of our state. As the fifth largest producer of total income and sales in the state, the Kansas health sector is a powerful economic force. In Kansas, hospitals employ more than 81,000 people or 4.3 percent of all job holders and generate $5.2 billion in direct total income.

Obstetrics There is no joy in medicine greater than helping a new life come into the world, and no bond in medicine stronger than the relationship that develops between the doctor and family when that joyous experience is shared. That is why the doctors of Lawrence Family Medicine & Obstetrics enjoy obstetrics so much. Together, we have experienced at least 10,000 deliveries and still get a thrill every time. The practice offers a full range of obstetrical services, including C-sections and forceps and on-site sonograms, non-stress tests and biophysical profiles. Our broad medical training helps us better understand and care for the medical problems that develop concurrent with pregnancy and their effects on the pregnancy. And when the fun is over, we’ll still be there to care for your and the baby’s medical needs. We don’t walk out after a ninemonth relationship.

to the Kansas Economy,” produced by researchers at the Office of Local Government, K-State Research and Extension, estimated the “gross” impacts associated with the health care sector on economic activity in the state and locally by county. The report identified three general areas of health care’s importance: health care attracts and retains business and industry; health care attracts

and retains retirees; and health care creates jobs in the local economy. According to the report, in 2011, the most recent year for which information was available, the health services sector accounted for an estimated 7.5 percent of total employment in Douglas County, or about 5,019 jobs. But the full impact goes beyond the number of people employed and the wages they receive. There is a secondary impact or “ripple effect” that comes from local businesses buying and selling to each other and from area workers spending

their income for household goods and services. The ripple effect spreads the economic impact of the health sector through the county’s economy. The report’s authors calculated economic multipliers for eight categories of health services and the total impact of the ripple effect on the Douglas County economy. For example, Lawrence Memorial Hospital employs 1,318 people and has an employment multiplier of 1.59. This means that for each job created at LMH, another 0.59 jobs are created in other businesses and industries in Douglas Coun-

Seated Forward Bend: 1 or 2 minutes Reclining Twist: 1 or 2 minutes Corpse Pose: At least 5 minutes. Don’t neglect this pose. It helps your body integrate all the poses you’ve just done, helps you rest, and teaches you how to relax. If you only have time for one pose, this is the one. Once you’ve begun a home practice, you will be amazed at how good you feel afterwards. Your once-a-week class will start to enhance your home practice and, overall, you’ll become a better student. By the way, home practice doesn’t necessarily mean solitary practice. Find a friend to do yoga with you.

ty. The direct impact of the 1,318 hospital employees results in an indirect impact of 779 jobs (1,318 x 0.59 = 779). Thus, the hospital had a total impact on area employment of 2,097 jobs. Similarly, multiplier analysis can estimate the total impact on income and retail sales. The report estimated that health services accounted for more than $262 million in total income and about $95 million in retail sales in Douglas County. Of that amount, for every dollar of income generated in the hospital sector in Douglas County, another 43 cents is generated in other businesses and industries in the county’s economy. Now more than ever, hospitals like LMH play a vital role in the community’s overall health.

Midwives Midwives say that letting babies come when they’re ready cuts down on labor time and the risk of C-sections. “We don’t induce our patients. We don’t routinely break their water,” said Honn. “Leaving the body alone and supporting what it is naturally going to do has been proven to give mom a better outcome and a lot of times the baby a better outcome.” “Labor pain releases excellent endorphins that are great for women’s emotions,” said nurse midwife Emily Fox, who started at LMH in March. “They’re all on this high afterward, thinking, ‘That was bad, but I did it. I can do anything.’ It’s a great way to start motherhood. You feel like you can conquer anything.” The midwives also say that women often psyche themselves out about giving birth before they even do it. “We live in a society of drama,” Honn said. “We live in a culture where women share birth stories that are horrible. We don’t have a lot of people sharing their fabulous birth stories.” “On TV and movies, you never see a good birth,” Easum added. “People think that’s the way it is because that’s what you always see.”

munity where they met, when Ryan accepted a job with the Kansas University athletic department. Rebekah knew she wanted a natural birth; Ryan, wary after hearing horror stories from friends who delivered in standalone birthing centers, wanted to do it in a hospital setting. Luckily Lawrence, unlike the Texas community where they lived previously, offered that opportunity. “I’m not big on taking medication in my life anyway, so the thought of being hooked up to an epidural and that whole process scared me,” said Rebekah, 27. “I read a lot about how it affects the mother and how it affects the baby. I just wanted it to be as natural as possible for both of us.” Rebekah said the 12-hour labor went “much better” than she expected. She practiced hypnobirthing to relax. She sat in a jacuzzi tub. She walked around. “I was left alone to let nature take its process,” she said. “No one was pushing things on me.” “The thing I was so amazed with was when we were still in the delivery room, I told her, ‘I can’t believe how good you look,’” said Ryan, 28. “You always see the pictures on Facebook where the husband is holding the baby, the baby is just zoned out, and the mom looks halfway dead. She didn’t.”

A different approach to ADHD Wes: It’s trendy to bash the diagnosis of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), those of us who hand it out, and by extension, those who have it. Following the national political mood, someone throws up an eye-catching title for a book or article about how ADD doesn’t exist or is over-diagnosed. The author then pontificates about the conspiracy of big-pharma, physicians, and therapists who label kids for “just being kids,� then turn them into “zombies� with mind-altering drugs. By comparison, my new book “I Always Want to Be Where I’m Not: Successful Living with ADD and ADHD� (available on Amazon and Kindle) is, like Double Take, just frank, practical advice for people with ADHD and those who love them. It’s fascinating to ponder who shot Kennedy or whether Nazis reverseengineered technology from aliens. But conspiracy theories rarely further the goals of humankind, and ADHD-bashing doesn’t help a child, teen or adult who has it. In fact, hyperbole obfuscates the real and serious problem with this diagnosis. Since we can’t possibly know what percentage of the population has ADHD, we can’t know whether it’s overdiagnosed. We know a lot of people who should be diagnosed, aren’t. Mental health providers see them all the time and once correctly treated, they usually get better. A lot better. At the same time, after twenty-two years in the field, I’ve seen a whole lot of kids and adults diagnosed who shouldn’t be. So the real problem isn’t over-diagnosis, it’s misdiagnosis. In the book I explain how to get a reliable

mental health evaluation that compares subjects to a standardization sample of non-ADHD peers, examines history, and considers concurrent or differential disorders like anxiety and insomnia. I also discuss the difference between people with the real diagnosis and those who are just “leaners.� And that’s just Chapter 12. The rest of the book offers tips on how to live successfully with ADHD. Yes, ADHD exists — at least as far as any mental health diagnosis defined by observed and reported symptoms can be said to “exist.� That may be hard for non-ADHD people to accept, but I’d ask disbelievers to at least do one thing: stop shaming ADHD people and their families by complaining that they’re dupes of a vast conspiracy and if they just tried a little harder everything would turn out fine. They’re good people who have enough struggles in life without the recrimination of others. Kendra: According to Web MD, ADHD is characterized by hyperactivity, impulsiveness and inattentiveness. Although some may argue that definition could describe my entire senior class this time of year, the real disorder can affect an individual for his or her entire lifetime.

have had to deal with issues of focus and concentration since kindergarten. And while many teachers and even peers find it easy to simply label a kid “lazy,� a student with legitimate symptoms of ADHD needs to be evaluated as soon as possible. Whether you “believe� in ADHD or not, you should believe in good education, a part of which is investigating how to best instruct students. And if you don’t yet know the problem, it’s impossible to find a solution that will translate well in the classroom. I’ve seen so many students fail to turn in assignments, not because they were unable to understand the material or do the work, but because they didn’t finish the homework, lost it, or left it at home. For some, what they need is a diagnosis and a treatment plan so teachers and parents can better collaborate to help the student. — Wes Crenshaw, Ph.D., ABPP, is author of “I Always Want to Be Where I’m Not: Successful Living with ADD & ADHD.� Learn about his practice Family Psychological Services at dr-wes.com.

I can still vividly recall a conversation with my husband last June. I was sitting with him at a restaurant, barely able to breathe through my Spanx, still carrying 20-plus pounds of baby weight and feeling frumpy and gross. He scolded me for my insecurity. “You’re beautiful,� he told me. And he went on to say that I could weigh 100 pounds more and still be beautiful. “It’s all about how you carry yourself. If you walk around like, ‘This is me and I don’t care what you think,’ it’s sexier than a girl who’s skinny and gorgeous, but insecure.� He then dropped a whammy on me: The way that I carry myself, talk about myself, and think about myself is going to be passed on to our girls. The way that I carry myself should be the way I want them to view themselves. Whoa, man. I didn’t even think about that. He was so right.

7 reasons you should eat more strawberries By Lauren Cass Lane Special to the Journal-World

I couldn’t be more excited. Why? It’s strawberry season! I look forward to this every year, because as a strawberry lover (addict might be a more appropriate term), access to tasty, ripe strawberries really puts a smile on my face. I blame my mother for this! When she was pregnant with me, my family lived in Florida, where every year they hold a strawberry festival and apparently we ate a lot of strawberries that year. Fast forward 28 years, and now I am always the last person to get the strawberries at the table, because they know I will eat them all if I have the chance. Luckily, here in Lawrence we have lots of fantastic places to pick strawberries. Wohletz U-Pick berry farm and Lawson Brothers Farm are just around the corner. You can get your daily Vitamin C with a serving of strawberries, not to mention tons of antioxidants. These tasty berries are also low on the glycemic index, so they won’t increase your blood sugar as much as eating bananas, pineapple or melons will. Let’s look at some fun facts and health benefits about strawberries: 1. They are the only fruit that has seeds on the outside and each berry has about 200 seeds on them. 2. Strawberries are

So You Hear, But it’s not Clear! How your hearing works: sound enters your ear canal through the air.

Hearing Problem #1 The ear canal’s job is to funnel sound to your ear drum. Sometimes the canal becomes plugged with wax , which mimics a hearing loss because it blocks sound from reaching your eardrum. Use of a cotton swab will pack wax even more. We will check for impacted wax with a video ear camera to see if this is a problem.

Sound Reaches Your Eardrum, which vibrates, starting a chain reaction.

The eardrum is located at the end of your ear canal. Your ear drum catches sound waves, vibrates, and begins a chain reaction. Your eardrum is connected to the first of three bones. We will check to ensure your eardrum is healthy.

The ear drum is connected to the first of three tiny bones. These bones are hinged and each causes the one next to it to move.

Hearing Problem #2 The three tiny bones of your inner ear conduct sound between your ear drum and your cochlea. Otosclerosis is the calcification of these bones, resulting in conductive hearing loss. About 10% of people have this type of loss.

This movement vibrates against the oval window in your cochlea, sending sound waves through this snail shaped organ.

Hearing Problem #3 The cochlea is a snail-shaped organ containing thousands of living hair cells called stereocilia. A condition known as Sensorineural hear ing loss (nerve type hearing loss) occurs when any of the hair cells become damaged.

Inside the cochlea are thousands of microscopic hair cells called Stereocilia, and these hair cells sense the motion of sound waves.

About 90% of hearing loss is this type. A new hearing computer has now been released that is programmed specifically for the frequencies of hair cells that are damaged, resulting in improved speech understanding.

Consonants

When the hair cells move, they send an electrical impulse through the Eighth Nerve to your brain. Then you hear sound!

With summer right around the corner, the American Red Cross asks eligible donors to make giving blood as much a part of their summer plans as barbecues, ball games and road trips. Donors of all blood types are needed. Please join us at the Immanuel Lutheran Church at Iowa Street and Bob Billings Parkway on Thursday anytime from noon to 6 p.m. to give the gift of life. Blood donations often decline during the summer when schools are out of session and families are vacationing, but the need for blood is constant. Eligible donors are encouraged to make an appointment now to roll up a sleeve and give patients a chance for hope this summer and throughout the year. The Red Cross provides blood to approximately 2,700 hospitals and transfusion centers across the country. Each day, the Red Cross must collect about 15,000 blood donations to meet the needs of patients at these facilities. To make an appointment to donate blood, visit redcrossblood.org or call 1-800-RED CROSS. Walk-in donors are also welcome.

Registered participants will receive an event T-shirt and postrace breakfast provided by Chris Cakes. Donations can be made online at eckan. org. Please make checks payable to Kalmar Ottawa 5K Walk/Run. Strollers are welcome, but must start behind runners/walkers. Water will be available throughout the event route. Walk-up registrations are also welcome. The East Central Kansas Economic Opportunity Corp., a community action agency, has been in existence since 1966 serving low-income persons in Anderson, Coffey, Douglas, Franklin, Johnson, Lyon, Miami, Morris and Osage Counties.

Three nonprofits win health grants The Kansas Health Foundation has awarded $299,338 in grants to three Lawrence nonprofits

to fund programs that support healthy eating, active living and tobacco elimination. Smoking and obesity remain the leading causes of preventable death and illness in the state, and combine to cost Kansas more than $2 billion annually in unnecessary health care costs. The foundation last week awarded $99,871 to the Lawrence school district, $99,625 to the Kansas University Endowment Association and $99,842 to the KU Center for Research. The grant to the Lawrence school district will fund a farm-to-school program to increase students’ consumption of fruits and vegetables and promote healthy eating habits. The district plans to implement policy change around school gardens and local food purchasing, and institute experimental learning and curriculum integration for students. The KU Endowment Association initiative is “Electronic Cigarettes: Addressing Policy Needs of Communities and Public Health in Kansas.” KU wants to support an implementation of health protections that prevent e-cigarette use in public places and workplaces, and evaluate tobacco policies under current municipal, county, local health department, school districts and large employers. The KU Center for Research will use its grant to promote healthy eating and active living among Latinos in Kansas City, Kan. It will build upon the fiveyear history of the Latino Health for All Coalition’s work to reduce the risk for health disparities related to cardiovascular disease, diabetes and obesity. The project aims to increase the number of community and school gardens; the number of places to be active; and restaurants’

healthy food environments through menu-labeling, placement, promotion and pricing.

Country Market to host dinner party A special dinner party will be held in Lawrence next month to benefit Healthy Sprouts, the Douglas County farm-topreschool program that teaches kids where their food comes from to instill healthy habits for life. The fundraiser takes place June 22 at Pendleton’s Country Market, 1446 E. 1850 Road, and will include a farm-to-table meal from Hilary’s Eat Well and Local Burger, plus local wine. Healthy Sprouts, which is adminstered through the Douglas County Child Development Association, partners with child care centers and in-home care providers to set up gardens so children can learn to plant, grow and eat nutritious foods. The beauty of the program is seeing how curious and open children are to vegetables when they have had a hand in growing and preparing them. Children participating in Healthy Sprouts have transformed their stance toward vegetables such as spinach and asparagus from one of “I don’t like it!” to an enthusiastic and curious “I want to try!” Harvesting and tasting spinach straight from the garden is an exciting and memorable experience, even for a 2-year-old. Only 60 tickets are available for the event, and they must be purchased by June 19. Buy them at eventbrite. com/e/summer-sproutsdinner-party-a-fundraiserfor-healthy-sprouts-tickets-11469771395.

Special coach, player lead P-L Perry — Zach Linquist, who graduated from PerryLecompton High over the weekend, wants to add state champion baseball player to his long list of amazing feats. He remembers the day when nobody at the school would have had the guts to state such a goal publicly. “When I was in my freshman year, I was so excited to get here, and then a kid who was a junior told me: ‘People here don’t really care about baseball. They’ve been trying to cut it over Linquist the years. It’s honestly a joke,’” Linquist said. He and classmates didn’t find that to be a funny joke, so they did Houk something about it. They listened to a coach determined to transform the baseball program from a punch line to a powerhouse. Seniors Brandon Eddy, Linquist, Daniel MunozCrow and Charlie Shuck have followed the lead of fifth-year head coach Kent Houk, a name the Lawrence baseball community would recognize from his days as a middle infielder for father Walt Houk’s Maupintour Travelers semi-pro baseball team. Baseball fans everywhere would recognize the last name.

FREE STATE SENIOR MADDIE DIEKER (7) SCORES TWICE DURING THE FIRST HALF against Wichita South during a Class 6A regional soccer game on Monday at FSHS. Dieker’s first goal, above, came eight minutes into the game and was followed by a strike, at top, past Wichita South midfielder Melonie Baca (10) in the 35th minute. The Firebirds won, 4-0.

Dieker nets two in FSHS first-round win By Bobby Nightengale bnightengale@ljworld.com

Free State soccer senior Maddie Dieker is known for making crisp passes to her teammates and putting them in position to score goals. With the way the Wichita South defenders were playing against the Firebirds’ forwards on Monday at FSHS, it

was time for Dieker to move from the passer and become the scorer. In the eighth minute of the match, the ball rolled toward Dieker on the left side of the box, and she drilled a goal over the outstretched arms of Wichita South’s goalkeeper. The new strategy worked like a charm, as Free State’s

girls soccer team created plenty of offense in a 4-0 victory in the first round of regionals. Dieker, a University of Portland signee, added another goal in the 35th minute, dancing around a defender and firing a shot just inside of the box. Please see SOCCER, page 3C

He was asked specifically about the chances of playing for Kobe Bryant’s Los Angeles Lakers, who are represented in the lottery after a disappointing season. “That would be something great, being under his wing,” said Wiggins. “I’d be learning a lot. That would be something crazy. I consider Kobe next to Mike (Michael Jordan) the best ever, just in my opinion.” Wiggins, who also appeared on ESPN’s “SportsCenter” on Monday, spoke glowingly about his one year in college. “It was my happiest year on the planet since I was born,” Wiggins told Van Pelt and Russillo of his time in Lawrence. “That’s like Please see WIGGINS, page 4C

Ex-SMNW coach Dickson to lead LHS girls basketball By Bobby Nightengale bnightengale@ljworld.com

Lawrence High didn’t need to look far to find its new girls basketball coach. LHS hired Jeff Dickson, formerly of Shawnee Mission Northwest, and introduced him to players on Monday afternoon in the school’s cafeteria. Dickson was named the Sunflower League co-Coach of the Year last season and led the Cougars to a Class 6A state tournament berth and a 16-7 record. “This is a great job. This is a great school,” said Dickson, who will also teach at LHS. “I’ve always liked and had a

lot of respect for Lawrence High. So much so that I interviewed for the boys (basketball) job back when Mike Lewis got it the first time.” Dickson took over at SMNW before the 2010-11 season and helped the Cougars to a 55-34 record over four seasons, including two trips to the 6A state tournament. “He’s a really good coach,” LHS junior point guard Marissa Pope said. ‘I’ve played against him for three years, and his teams have always been good and have good intensity. Just in this meeting, he has a ton of intensity, so I’m excited for him.” Dickson resigned from SMNW in early April and

told the Shawnee Dispatch in an emailed statement: “I was completely blindsided when I was told by our new administration that they wanted to move in a different direction with the girl’s basketball program.” The Shawnee Dispatch (in a story at http://ljw. bz/1o8FecN) reported a few individuals complained to the school’s administration that Dickson texted players too much, though there was no issue with the content.

HORSE RACING

Nasal strips OK’d Belmont Park’s three stewards ruled unanimously Monday morning to allow horses at all three New York Racing Association tracks to race while equipped with nasal strips, effective immediately. The decision will allow California Chrome to wear his customary Flair Equine Nasal Strip on June 7 when he goes for the Triple Crown in the Belmont Stakes. The ruling came as no surprise and kept the racing world from getting its nose out of joint. Particularly relieved were Perry Martin, co-owner of the Kentucky Derby and Preakness winner, and his 77-year-old trainer, Art Sherman. A NYRA release said Sherman contacted Belmont’s stewards Sunday afternoon and requested permission to run his superstar colt with the white nasal strip he’s worn in six consecutive races starting last Dec. 22. The stewards consulted with New York State Gaming Commission medical director Scott E. Palmer, who determined there was no reason to prohibit the equipment, which helps horses breathe more easily during competition. He recommended that the strips be allowed for all horses competing at Belmont, Aqueduct and Saratoga.

ISU lands 7-footer, Oregon St. transfer Ames, Iowa — Iowa State says it has signed 7-foot-1 Greek center Georgios Tsalmpouris to a letter of intent. Tsalmpouris, who doesn’t turn 18 until next month, is a member of Greece’s national team. Tsalmpouris will be just the seventh 7-foot player in school history, and he’ll be eligible to play starting next season. Also Monday, former Oregon State guard Hallice Cooke says he plans to transfer to Iowa State. Cooke averaged 8.2 points a game while shooting 46 percent from three-point range as a freshman in 2013-14. He’ll sit out next season and have three years of eligibility left. Cooke is a 6-foot-3 combo guard from Union City, New Jersey.

San Antonio (ap) — The San Antonio Spurs were planning to attack the lane whether Oklahoma City big man Serge Ibaka was playing or not. The fact that the Thunder’s athletic defender was absent only made things easier for them. Tim Duncan scored 27 points, and San Antonio took advantage of Ibaka’s absence to dominate the paint, beating the Oklahoma City 122-105 on Monday night in the opener of the Western Conference finals. Tony Parker did not appear limited by a hamstring injury, scoring 14 points and having 12 assists in 36 minutes. “We always want to try to penetrate,” Parker said. “We always want our ball movement, that’s how we play — kick and pitch and stuff like that. You know, obviously it’s a little bit better with (Ibaka) not being in the paint, but we’re still going to try to penetrate and make stuff happen.” The Thunder got their usual offensive outputs from AllStars Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook, who scored 28 and 25 points respectively. But Oklahoma City’s remaining starters, Nick Collison, Thabo Sefolosha and Kendrick Perkins, combined to score five points with 13 rebounds and one assist. But it was defensively were the Thunder struggled without Ibaka, who will miss the remainder of the postseason after suffering a calf injury in Oklahoma City’s series clincher against the Clippers. The Spurs had 66 points in the paint and shot 58 percent from the field. It was the highest shooting percentage allowed by the Thunder in the

If we expect to beat one of the best teams in basketball, and a very good offensive team, we have to play and we’re not going to make an excuse.” The Spurs fed Duncan early with Ibaka out, and the veteran responded by shooting 6 for 7 in scoring 12 points in the opening quarter.

dished to Duncan early before looking for his own shot midway through the quarter. “That’s part of our game plan,” Duncan said. “He knew that they weren’t going to let him shoot the ball like he did in the last series. They were going to try to take that away from him, so he knew he was going to have to be an assist man.” Parker scored all but two of his points in the first half as the Spurs beat the Thunder for the first time this season. Even though San Antonio improved to 7-1 at home in the playoffs, winning their past five games by an average of 20.6 points, Monday’s victory was not easy. The Spurs also still remember what happened in the 2012 conference finals, when the Thunder won four straight to rally from an 0-2 deficit.

NBA charges Sterling; hearing set

Corvallis, Ore. — Wayne Tinkle, who coached the past eight seasons at Montana, was hired as Oregon State’s new head coach Monday night. Tinkle took the Grizzlies to the NCAA Tournament three times in his tenure with the team. Montana finished below .500 only once during that span. The 48-year-old replaces Craig Robinson, brother-in-law of President Barack Obama, after he was fired earlier this month following six seasons with the Beavers where he failed to make the NCAA Tournament.

New York (ap) — The NBA charged Donald Sterling on Monday with damaging the league and its teams with his racist comments, setting up a June 3 hearing after which owners could vote to terminate his ownership of the Los Angeles Clippers. The league also said the banned owner has engaged in other conduct that has impaired its relationship with fans and merchandising partners. “All of these acts provide grounds for termination under

LJWorld.com/highschool • Facebook.com/LJWorldpreps • Twitter.com/LJWpreps

several provisions of the NBA constitution and related agreements,” the league said in a statement. Sterling was banned for life and fined $2.5 million by Commissioner Adam Silver after the release of a recording in which he made racist remarks. He has until May 27 to respond to the charge, and the right to appear at the hearing and make a presentation before the board of governors. He has the right to a lawyer at the hearing, but strict courtroom rules of evidence would not apply.

HIGH SCHOOL REGIONALS NOTEBOOK

Lions baseball ready for rematch By Bobby Nightengale bnightengale@ljworld.com

Revenge is on the mind of Lawrence High’s baseball players. LHS will face Olathe Northwest in the first round of regionals at 2 p.m. today in Manhattan. The Ravens beat the Lions in their lone regularseason meeting, 4-2, on April 8 at ONW. “Yeah, sure, you want to gain revenge, because if you gain revenge, then you’re in the championship game against Manhattan,” Lions coach Brad Stoll said. “We feel like it’s probably one of

“Sometimes you just have to put your head down and get a goal, and not look for all the fancy passes,” Dieker said. “But it was nice to get one under the belt and then work more as a team after that.” The Firebirds used their midfielders to create chances throughout the first half, with seniors Kaitlin Dunbar, Lexi Brady and Anna Craig just missing on shots. In the second half, they switched to finding their forwards sprinting down the pitch. Senior midfielder Hadyn Hutchison made a beautiful cross from the right side of the box to the left, finding sophomore teammate Tori Karlin, who headed the ball into the back of the net to give the Firebirds a 3-0 lead.

the toughest draws in the state, but I told the team that to be anything but excited would be wrong.” LHS will likely send out senior right-hander Bryce Montes de Oca in the first game and try to save senior Brandon Bell for a possible rematch against Manhattan (18-2). The Lions lost to Manhattan, 2-0, in the regional finals last year. The Lions own a 4-3 record in their last seven games, though two of the losses have been in extra innings. They won, 5-4, in a nine-inning thriller over Free State on Thursday

LHS softball on a roll Lawrence High’s softball team won five of its last six games and has plenty of confidence going into regionals today. “We told the girls to play within themselves and not worry about doing anything extra,” LHS coach Joe Dee Tarbutton said. “‘Just do everything

that you’ve been working on hard all season.’ I think we’re going in confident but not overconfident.” The Lions (13-7) will play Topeka High (9-11) at 4:45 p.m. at the CBAC complex in Olathe. They practiced at Holcom Park in Lawrence on Monday to prepare for dirt fields. Though the Lions nearly hosted a regional, earning a No. 3 seed, they aren’t worried about trying to win games on the road. “I think we still will be fine,” Tarbutton said. “We played as well (home and away). I wish we could have played home for the

“It was awesome,” said Karlin, who didn’t want to take credit away from Hutchison’s pass. “It was great, but it was really not my goal. It was a great ball.” The Firebirds (11-6) outshot the Titans (7-91) on net, 24-4, and controlled the ball for most of the game. Free State defenders Olivia Hodison, Allix Ice, Hanna Heline, and Rosemary Newsome shut down every counter-attack and allowed goalkeeper Annie Hierl to relax in net. “Our defense was really strong today,” Dieker said. “They’re our rock. If we can attack from the defense, that opens so many lanes for our offense to work off that.” “Yeah, we were on it,” Ice added. “We were out to win. We wanted to win.” The defensive play is nothing new, as the Firebirds recorded their seventh shutout of the season.

“That unit has just been tremendous for us all year,” FSHS coach Kelly Barah said. “Olivia, Allix and Hanna have just been beautiful. It looks like offensively we’re better, but it’s because they’re so good defensively that it allows us to do some other things that we need to do.” Free State junior Brooke Hayes stole the ball in the box from a Wichita South defender and sneaked a shot to the back of the net from about eight yards away, capping the Firebirds’ victory in the 72nd minute. “I just think the team right now has played arguably our best four, fivegame stretch,” Barah said. “We’re just clicking really well and so we like the way we’re looking right now.” The Firebirds will play in the regional championship at Topeka Washburn Rural (15-2). The game is scheduled for 6 p.m. Thursday, but weather may force the game to Wednesday.

City golf teams send trio to state J-W Staff Reports

Overland Park — Lawrence High senior golfer Narito Mendez shot a 78 and placed fourth to qualify for state during a Class 6A regional Monday at St. And r e w s G o l f Course. M e n - Mendez dez and two others tied for the second-lowest score behind leader David Gutgesell of Olathe East, but Mendez took fourth after tiebreakers were applied. Joining Mendez as individual state qualifiers were Free State’s Jack Flynn and Jack Junge. The pair of Jacks shot rounds of 83 to tie for 13th place overall, but their scores were just inside the cutoff for qualifiers not affiliated with the top three teams. Lawrence High finished fifth in the team standings with 338 strokes, and Free State placed sixth with 340. The Lions were four strokes away from a three-way tie for the third-place spot. Olathe East led the team standings with 318 strokes. The Class 6A state golf tournament will be held May 27 at Topeka Country Club. l

KU golfers confident underdogs at NCAAs By Gary Bedore gbedore@ljworld.com

If teams were seeded according to Golfstat. com rankings, Kansas University’s women’s golfers would enter this week’s NCAA championships 21st in a 24-team field. “It’s a little different when you are under the radar,” KU coach Erin O’Neil said. The Jayhawks, who improved five spots the final day at the Central Regional to place fifth of 24 teams, were one of eight teams to survive Stillwater, Oklahoma’s Karsten Creek Golf Club and advance to the NCAA finals, which run today through

THE CHAMPIONSHIP What: NCAA Women’s Golf Championship When: Today-Friday Where: Tulsa Country Club (Tulsa, Oklahoma) Friday at Tulsa Country Club. O’Neil’s Jayhawks enter calm, cool and collected while embracing their status as underdogs. “Why not?” O’Neil said of her five players believing they have a shot at the team title. “Our plan the whole year has been to do our best each day and see where the chips fall. So that’s our plan now. We will focus on doing

our best and see where we land. “This is a good chance for us to see how we stack up against the best. We beat some really good teams (at regional). I think that’s a great confidence-builder going into nationals and show everybody what we can do, continue doing that.” KU’s entrants are: freshman Pornvipa “Faii” Sakdee, sophomore Yupaporn “Mook” Kawinpakorn, junior Minami Levonowich and seniors Thanuttra “Fhong” Boonraksasat and Meghan Potee. Kawinpakorn enters with a 74.4 stroke average. She’s on track to break her own KU sin-

gle-season record of 74.8 set her freshman season. A 2014 All-Big 12 selection, Kawinpakorn has 10 rounds of even par or better and has carded three 69s in her last two tournaments (two at the Big 12 meet and one at the NCAA Central Regional). “Mook can win it. Mook has a shot at winning it,” O’Neil said. “If she can stick to her game plan and keep her head in a good spot, she certainly has the game and ability to do it.” Eight teams in the field are ranked in Golfstat’s top 10. The field consists of No. 1 USC, No. 2 UCLA, No. 3 Duke, No. 4 Arizona State, No. 5 Washington, No. 7 Oklahoma, No. 8 Vanderbilt, No. 10 Ala-

bama, No. 11 Arizona, No. 12 Stanford, No. 15 Northwestern, No. 17 North Carolina State, No. 18 Virginia, No. 20 Michigan State, No. 21 Florida, No. 22 Ohio State, No. 24 Iowa State, No. 25 California, No. 27 Mississippi State, No. 29 KU, No. 30 Texas A&M, No. 31 Tulane and No. 45 Campbell. Vanderbilt, South Carolina and Duke were the top three finishers in the East regional; UCLA, Alabama and Mississippi State in the Central Regional; and USC, Washington and Arizona State in the West Regional. “The top teams will be UCLA, Alabama, probably Southern Cal,” said O’Neil, whose Jayhawks

home to me, really. Walking in the fieldhouse gives you chill bumps. It’s a crazy feeling to be there, in that situation, be under a legendary coach like Bill Self and play with the teammates I had. It was a once-in-a-lifetime experience for me. I’ll never forget anything about it. “I can understand why players stay all four years in college. College is fun. There’s nothing like it at all,” Wiggins added. “If I could erase time and replay every day back in Kansas, I would. You know that can’t happen. That’s how fun Kansas is to me.” Wiggins was asked on “SportsCenter” if part of him wishes there were a rule requiring him to stay at KU another year. “Yeah. I’m only 19. Every day I think about college. It really was the best time of my life at Kansas. I enjoyed it so much. It was one of a kind,” Wiggins he said. “I couldn’t really picture myself going to the NBA after high school. I think that would have been a mess for me. I wouldn’t have been (ready).” Asked to sum up what

Obviously, it was all basketball-related stuff,” Dickson said. “I’ve been told here that’s obviously not an issue. But for me, after going through something like that, we’re going to disseminate information in a different way. I’m not going to enter into anything remotely like that to make sure there’s no misunderstanding from anybody.” Former Lions’ coach Nick Wood resigned last month to pursue a teach-

and Red Sox, born in Lawrence in 1919. To hear Linquist tell it, Kent Houk, 52, inherited the winning gene. “He knows what he’s doing,” Linquist said. He looked out at an outfield fence lined with advertisements and said, “Before coach got here, this field was a joke. It didn’t even have a warning track.”

IN THIS MAY 21, 2013 FILE PHOTO, NBA BASKETBALL TEAM REPRESENTATIVES SIT ONSTAGE at the start of the NBA draft lottery in New York. The draft lottery is tonight, and the winner gets the No. 1 pick in next month’s draft. Kansas University teammates and possible top selections Andrew Wiggins and Joel Embiid will be attending the lottery ceremony, according to media reports, and former Jayhawks Marcus and Markieff Morris will represent the Phoenix Suns.

are in nationals for the second time in school history. The Jayhawks also advanced in 1990. “It’s nationals. Every team is tough. I think it will be a great opportunity to compare ourselves and learn and make us that much better for next year.” Following practice rounds Sunday and Monday, KU will play its first two (of four) rounds with Virginia and Iowa State. The three teams will open on hole No. 1 at 8:36 a.m. today and on hole 10 at 12:56 p.m. Wednesday. The pairings and tee times for the final two rounds will be determined by the first two rounds’ results. Tulsa Country Club, par 70, measures 6,194 yards.

los told the website. “I know he’s very partial to Vaughan, having been raised here.” Councilor Alan Shefman, of Vaughan’s Thornhill district, offered the resolution. “I think it’s really important that we recognize excellence and, secondly, recognize people that have the potential to be heroes to young people in our community,” Shefman told ourwindsor.ca. “Andrew Wiggins, a Vaughan kid playing ball at one of our local high schools and growing up in our community, is a great example of somebody who can, through his athletic ability, become not only a hero, but a role model for people.” To read the story, go online to http://ljw. bz/1jxyp5c. l

No news on Mykhailiuk: All is quiet on the Sviatoslav Mykhailiuk recruiting front. The 6-foot-6 shooting guard from Ukraine visited KU over the weekend and reportedly had a great visit. He headed to Virginia on Sunday with no word yet on his visit there. His coaches have yet to put out word if he’ll be making any more visits. Michigan, Oregon and North Carolina had been listed as possibilities. Reportedly, he still is seriously considering playing pro ball next season in Europe. KU has two scholarships left to give in recruiting.

he learned at KU, Wiggins said: “I was always a good on-the-ball defender, but I learned how to play defense off the ball. I learned the pick-androll game, just how to take advantage of certain situations. Also a lot of the mental part. Staying true to who I am. Coach Self at the end of the year really brought out the dog in me. That’s why I started playing better at the end of the year. He really made me just get focused.” Wiggins remains atop Chad Ford’s ESPN “Big Board” entering today’s lottery, with Embiid No. 2

and Duke’s Jabari Parker No. 3. “Being from a different country ... being selected first or even in the top three in a whole different country is a blessing to me,” Wiggins said. “I think it was important before, but right now I think going No. 1 would just be like a label. I’ve noticed a lot of great players didn’t go No. 1 and still ended up being one of the best ever or hall of famers.” None of the projected top three players attended the recent NBA Combine in Chicago. Wiggins explained his reasoning.

ing and coaching job overseas in Muscat, Oman. About 20 players showed up on Monday to introduce themselves to Dickson and learn more about summer basketball camps and workout schedules. Lindsey Murray, last year’s freshman-team coach and member of the 2008 LHS state champion girls basketball team, was also at the introduction and will stay on under Dickson. “I was a little worried because everyone loved coach Wood, and once he left, (some players) were talking about not playing,” Pope said. “This reassured me because a ton of people came out.” LHS athletic director Bill DeWitt added: “I think coach Dickson here has an opportunity

to continue to take us in the direction that coach Wood was, and I’m excited to have him on board.” The Lions ended last season with a 6-15 record. After coaching the girls basketball program at SMNW, and the boys basketball team at PerryLecompton before that, Dickson enjoys the process of building a perennial winner. “Sometimes when things aren’t going your way or things are going against you,” Dickson said, “that’s when you really have the most fun as a coach, because you get to see kids start to do things they don’t think they can Nick Krug/Journal-World Photo do and start to believe in things didn’t believe in be- LAWRENCE HIGH FRESHMAN NEFERTITI SHEPHERD INTRODUCES HERSELF to newlyfore, then get to be a part hired LHS girls basketball coach Jeff Dickson following his introduction to players on Monday in the school cafeteria. of them having success.”

Perry-Lecompton’s victory totals in order, in Houk’s five seasons: 4, 8, 12, 16, 17 and counting. The Kaws open the 4A playoffs today in Ozawkie vs. Holton. How did Houk do it? “I think it’s just a mindset,” Houk said. “They kept getting close, kept competing. Then they turned the corner and started winning games, started believing in everything they were doing. And it doesn’t hurt to have good baseball players. This senior class is a pretty special group of kids.” None more so than

Linquist, who was in the news during the winter for missing just three basketball games after being diagnosed with leukemia. Now he’s making news for his dominant performances on the mound and at the plate. Linquist is batting .522 with 29 RBIs for the 17-3 Kaws. Closing games, he has a 0.23 ERA. In 26 innings, he has allowed 16 hits and eight walks and has 46 strikeouts. He signed with Washburn University, where he will play for his grandfather, Steve Anson, in the

“I was going to go, but other top players did not go, so me and my agent and my parents talked about it. We decided not to go,” Wiggins said. Instead, he released a picture of his verticalmeasurement test. The picture of a high-flying Wiggins went viral on the Internet. “They thought it would be a good idea to show I’m not taking time off. I’m working out every day doing the same stuff (they did at Combine),” he added. “I’m just doing it on my own time, working out in L.A. and Santa Barbara.”

He said he had been feeling sick for about a year and finally was talked by his grandmother into seeing a doctor and only then did he do so because bruises started appearing all over his body. “I was diagnosed with leukemia Oct. 2,” he said. “I cried for a minute, and then I actually saw my dad crying, and then I knew from then on out I had to be positive and I

Wiggins Day: June 26 has been declared “Andrew Wiggins Day” in Wiggins’ hometown of Vaughan, Ontario, Canada, as reported by ourwindsor.ca. City commissioners voted to name the day after Wiggins, whose college games were all televised in Canada this past season. Gus Gymnopoulos, Wiggins’ coach at Vaughan Secondary School, called it “a phenomenal thing.” “I think he would be much appreciative of that honor and that designation coming from the City of Vaughan,” Gymnopou-

couldn’t let it get to me. I was actually supporting people when I was in the hospital, telling them I was going to be all right.” The disease, which he said he fights with medication he expects to take for the rest of his life, has not kept him from dominating, but he said he still feels its bite at times. “I’m supposed to drink six to eight bottles of water a day,” he said. “If I don’t get enough, my body feels like it just shuts down. There are definitely days that I feel awful, but I think leukemia has bet-

tered me as a person. It’s made me more mature. It’s made me appreciate things in life more.” Linquist talked about the things he appreciates most. His father, who is raising him; his girlfriend; his teammates; and his baseball coach. “He never secondguesses himself,” Linquist said of Houk. “Whatever he thinks is right he does it. We may not agree with it at the time, but then after practice we’re like, ‘OK, it actually worked.’ He knows what he’s doing.”

KANSAS CITY’S NORI AOKI GRIMACES after hitting a foul ball off his leg during the fourth inning of the Royals’ 7-6 loss to the White Sox on Monday in Kansas City, Mo. ning off Al Alburquerque, giving Cleveland a victory over drowsy Detroit. Brantley connected on a 3-2 pitch from Alburquerque (1-1), driving it into the Tigers’ bullpen to end Cleveland’s four-game losing streak. Scott Atchison (1-0) pitched a perfect 10th, retiring Miguel Cabrera and Victor Martinez for the first two outs. Detroit’s J.D. Martinez hit a pinch-hit homer in the ninth to tie it 4-all, but the Tigers couldn’t muster more magic in extra innings.

SCOREBOARD

MAJOR-LEAGUE ROUNDUP

White Sox 7, Royals 6 Kansas City, Mo. — White Sox first baseman Paul Konerko simply scoffed when he was asked to summarize in a paragraph Monday night’s wild victory over the Kansas City Royals. “I don’t know if a paragraph is enough,” he said. Well, first came the five-run lead that the Royals established in the first inning. Then a frantic comeback by Chicago, capped by Konerko’s two-run homer. And finally, clutch pitching by relievers Scott Downs and Jake Petricka to save the series-opening win. All in a nice, tidy paragraph. “We got behind big early, like a lot of games here in the past,” Konerko said. “But guys started taking pride in their at-bats and we started to chip away.” Alexei Ramirez homered and drove in four runs, and Dayan Viciedo went deep before Konerko — starting in place of injured slugger Jose Abreu — hit his goahead homer in the fifth. Zach Putnam (2-0) worked two shutout innings in relief of Scott Carroll, and Ronald Belisario also threw two scoreless innings before Downs and Petricka bailed out Matt Lindstrom. Lindstrom, normally the White Sox closer, gave up a leadoff single to Nori Aoki in the ninth, then appeared to step awkwardly fielding a sacrifice bunt by Alcides Escobar that resulted in an error. Downs entered and struck out Eric Hosmer, and then Petricka picked off pinch-runner Jarrod Dyson at second base before getting Billy Butler on a groundout for his first save. “The bullpen was great. They just continue to shine,” said White Sox manager Robin Ventura, who was still awaiting word after the game on the severity of Lindstrom’s right ankle injury. Jason Vargas (4-2) squandered the rare fiverun lead the Royals’ popgun offense gave him. He allowed all seven White Sox runs in 42⁄3 innings.

Dear Annie: Six years ago, I gave up my job to take care of my mother, while my siblings went off and had fun. After Mom passed, I still had the house to clean and laundry to do. I never asked for a dime. But as my own health has declined, everyone continues to treat me like a servant. My father and brother both say demeaning things to me. My sisterin-law is a know-it-all and makes it clear that she thinks I’m an idiot. My son-in-law makes me the butt of his jokes. They all behave as if I am nothing. I am 60 years old and tired of this. All I can think of is getting away from every single one of them. Should I? — J. Dear J.: Is there a reason you must continue living in your mother’s house?

it. It’s OK to say no to them. If you can find any kind of job that pays a salary, even part time, we highly recommend you start putting money aside and make a life for yourself that you can enjoy. You don’t have to cut off contact with your family. You simply need them to see that you no longer will tolerate such poor treatment. Dear Annie: I read the letter from “Omaha, Neb.,” whose wife is grossly overweight. He

CBS jogs into first place If team sports teach us anything, it’s that it’s never nice to run up the score. While some of its shows skew to an older audience, CBS dominates the dial in its appeal to total viewers. And that audience is never so dependable as on Tuesday nights, when “NCIS” and its Los Angeles-based spin-off air. Not unlike a winning team putting in the B-squad after running up a comfortable lead, CBS airs “Judge Judy Primetime” (7 p.m.) during the last Tuesday of May sweeps. It’s hard to tell if that’s good sportsmanship, or just a different form of gloating. Hoping to continue its string of “NCIS” successes, CBS will open a new office. “NCIS: New Orleans,” starring Scott Bakula, will air on Tuesdays starting next fall. “NCIS: Los Angeles” moves to Monday nights at 9 p.m., a time when the network has stumbled, with “Hostages” and “Intelligence” both canceled.

 The next time you see a young performer in a thoroughly silly TV role, just remember, he or she may some day become an Academy Award winner. Who would have predicted that Mo’Nique would have won an Academy Award (for “Precious”) when she was on the UPN show “The Parkers”? Did “The Jamie Foxx Show” portend an Oscar (for “Ray”) when it debuted on the WB in 1996? Who predicted that “Bosom Buddies” star Tom Hanks would win two Oscars (for “Philadelphia” and “Forrest Gump”)? Few stars were more associated with the silly and ephemeral than Sally Field, particularly when she starred as the teenage surfer on “Gidget” or as “The Flying Nun,” arguably one of the more ridiculous escapist comedies to come out of the frazzled 1960s. Field would go on to win two Oscars (for “Norma Rae” and “Places in the Heart”) and a long acting career. Tonight’s highlights

My wife says she doesn’t want to outlive me, because she would be too devastated by the loss. She has stated that she doesn’t really care about her weight, lack of exercise or eating habits, so if she dies, it’s all for the better. She eats voraciously, binge-drinks until she nearly passes out and doesn’t exercise beyond getting out of bed to sit in her recliner. She has no strength or stamina, plus she has back, hip, leg and foot problems, and sleep apnea.

JACQUELINE BIGAR’S STARS

For Tuesday, May 20, 2014: This year you will start enjoying all the excitement that surrounds you. At first, you might be exhausted by the unexpected changes. If you are single, with so much going on, you inevitability will meet several potential suitors. If you are attached, be willing to verbalize what you desire, and remain equally as sensitive to your sweetie. The stars show the kind of day you’ll have: 5-Dynamic; 4-Positive; 3-Average; 2-So-so; 1-Difficult Aries (March 21-April 19)  An offer might seem too good to be true, so check it out. You could find an associate to be difficult and possibly touchy as well. Tonight: Hang with your pals. Taurus (April 20-May 20)  Take charge of a situation, especially if someone involved is being somewhat hostile. Tonight: Be careful with your spending. Gemini (May 21-June 20)  You’ll be unusually verbal, and therefore capable of seeing the big picture. Tonight: Tap into your imagination. Cancer (June 21-July 22)  Deal with others on a one-on-one level. You might want to understand more before making any decisions. Tonight: Why not initiate a close encounter? Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)  Others won’t hesitate to challenge you. Your sense of humor

love my wife, but she’s difficult to be with. I hope she reads this. She sure isn’t paying attention to me. — Given Up Hope Out East Dear Just: We aren’t buying your wife’s reasoning. We think she has given up on living a healthy life because the amount of work required is overwhelming and depressing. But she also is putting tremendous strain on you. You cannot fix this. She must want to do it for herself. So make sure she has a legal will and that her funeral wishes are written down for you. Then let her do what she wants. You need to live the best life you can while she lets hers slowly fade away. — Send questions to anniesmailbox@comcast.net, or Annie’s Mailbox, P.O. Box 118190 Chicago, IL 60611.

will emerge. Tonight: Go along with someone else’s choice. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)  Dive into work, and get past a problem that keeps reappearing. Tonight: Get some exercise. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)  You might be overwhelmed by an offer from someone you look up to. Tonight: Go for offbeat. Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)  You could be in a position of making a change on the homefront. You’ll see a personal matter a lot differently. Tonight: Order in. Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)  Make the most of some extra time and catch up on calls. A loved one will go overboard for you. Tonight: At a favorite spot. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)  You might want to change directions, especially when the issue is financial. Tonight: Make it your treat. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)  Your gentle manner will open up doors and allow a lot more give-and-take. Tonight: Let the good times happen. Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)  You’ll need to say less and remain more anchored than you have in the recent past. Reach out to someone you respect, and ask for this person’s advice. Tonight: Not to be found. — The astrological forecast should be read for entertainment only.
