Ex-consultant seeks leniency in tickets scam By Roxana Hegeman Associated Press

WICHITA — A former consultant for Kansas University athletics asked a federal judge on Wednesday to sentence him to no more than 21 months in prison for his part in a $2 million ticket scalping scandal that has

already sent two other conspirators to prison for longer terms. Thomas Blubaugh of Medford, Okla., pleaded in a court filing for leniency when he is sentenced Monday, citing his poor health, his young children and his cooperation with authorities. He is seeking a sentence below the advisory guide-

line range of 33 months to 41 months. In his filing, Blubaugh said he does not dispute a recommendation in the pre-sentence investigation report that he make restitution of $841,111, the losses he argued are attributable to him and his wife. But he does not want to be held responsible for the

thefts and sales of tickets by other conspirators. Seven people, including Blubaugh’s wife, Charlette Blubaugh, have been snared in the investigation into the unlawful sale of football and basketball season Please see TICKETS, page 2A T. Blubaugh

Low voter turnout not unique to Lawrence; time for change? Some say local elections should be in Nov.; others suggest different weekday By Chad Lawhorn

Energy smart: The Journal-World makes the most of renewable resources. www.b-e-f.org

TOPEKA — Kansas Bioscience Authority leaders on Wednesday acknowledged that the agency was being investigated but disputed allegations of wrongdoing leveled by a state senator from Wichita. In his first public comments since state Sen. Susan Wagle, RWichita, on Friday accused him of conflicts of interest, KBA President and Chief Executive Officer Tom Thornton said that he has done nothing wrong and that Wagle has left impressions that are not true. Thornton Thornton was backed up by the KBA's board chairman John Carlin, a former Kansas governor. “None of her charges hold up,” Carlin Carlin said. Their comments came after Wagle told reporters that the KBA was being investigated by the Johnson County District Attorney's office. “There is a criminal investigation going on,” Wagle said. She declined to reveal any more information, except to say several employees have received subpoenas. Carlin and Thornton said that there is an investigation but that they knew little more than that. They said they weren't concerned about the probe because the agency is repeatedly audited. Chris McMullin, chief deputy district attorney in Johnson

Blame it on the weather. Maybe 70-degree temperatures and sunny skies caused people to just find something else to do besides vote in Tuesday’s city and school elections. No, it doesn’t make a lot of sense, but whatever caused a 13 percent voter turnout in Lawrence was happening in other communities too. “I’ve talked to a number of my peers today, and it really sounds like this

wa s an i ss u e statewide,” Douglas County Clerk Jamie Shew said. A quick check by the Journal-World Shew found that turnout in Sedgwick County was 12.7 percent. In Shawnee County, it was 11.6 percent. In Johnson County, it was 9.7 percent. Think maybe in smaller counties the story was different? Nope. Jefferson County was 8.1 percent and Franklin County was 7.1 percent.

Need for a change? Douglas County’s low turnout, which marked the third consecutive city/school election to see a decline in turnout, had some people asking whether we are voting at the wrong time. There long have been questions about why city and school elections take place in April instead of in November when statewide and national elections are conducted. The simple answer is because state law dictates it, but state law could be changed. In fact, there was a bill introduced this legislative session to move local elections to November, Shew said.

DEATHS Frances Marie Myers LINCOLN , N EB . — Frances Marie Myers of Lincoln, died April 4, 2011 in the Hospice wing of Tabitha Health Care Services, 4720 Randolph Street, Lincoln. Frances was born on a farm in Wapello County, Iowa, on December 16, 1920 to Harold and M. Helen Scarborough Russell. She attended a country school in that area for three years before moving to the Packwood area. There she attended the Packwood Schools through her sophomore year. The family then moved back near the Ottumwa Airport and Frances finished high school in Ottumwa, Iowa, graduating in 1938. Frances attended school for one summer at Iowa State Teachers College in Cedar Falls, where she obtained her teacher’s certificate to teach in a country school even though she was not eighteen years old — which was the minimum age for a teacher. Frances taught in a rural school for three years with a starting salary of $58.00 a month. She married Wesley Glenn in 1942, and they later divorced. They had one daughter, Coleen. She married Ernest (Ernie) F. Myers on May 18, 1947. Ernie was the manager of the Ottumwa Water Works until his retirement in 1979. They had one son, Russell. After she and Ernie both retired they spent several winters in Texas and Arizona before becoming fulltime residents of Arizona until after Ernie’s death August 8, 1993. Then she moved back to Ottumwa, Iowa, to be near family. She later married Hugh Stufflebeam, and they lived in Lenexa, Kansas until his death January 20, 2009. Frances spent 15 years with the Iowa Illinois Gas Company in Ottumwa as well as a part-time aide in the Ottumwa School sys-

tem. She was a member of Davis St. Christian Church, Wapello County Historical Society, AARP, Women’s Club, and Hospital Auxiliary. She was preceded in death by her parents; husbands Ernest Myers and Hugh Stufflebeam, and her son Russell E. Myers, on July 17, 2010.

tickets by key athletics department officials to ticket brokers and others in which the employees pocketed the money. All pleaded guilty. Thomas Blubaugh, 46, pleaded guilty in January to a single count of conspiracy to defraud the United States through wire fraud, tax obstruction and interstate transportation of stolen property. As a consultant to the ticket office, Thomas Blubaugh was on the payroll from August 2007 until January 2010 at a cost of $115,000 to Kansas Athletics Inc., a nonprofit that promotes Kansas athletics. He was previously the director of athletic ticket operations at the University of Oklahoma. In his plea agreement, Thomas Blubaugh admitted he paid travel expenses for an intermediary who marketed the stolen tickets through brokers in Oklahoma. He also acknowledged he used deception to keep others from tracing the tickets back to him by using third parties not connected to the ticket office to sell them to individuals and

brokers. He also admitted concealing the proceeds on tax returns. Charlette Blubaugh, then the associate athletic director at KU, was in charge of the ticket office. She has admitted that she began stealing tickets in 2005, giving them to other employees to sell to third parties in violation of university policy. She will be sentenced on April 14. In seeking a more lenient sentence, Thomas Blubaugh argued in his latest filing that the court should consider that the couple have two children together, ages 6 and 5. Charlette Blubaugh also has two children from a previous marriage who live with their father and visit the Blubaughs every other weekend. He asked the court to take into account his family situation and either give him a lesser sentence than was recommended or allow his wife to stay out of prison until he has completed his sentence so that one parent can care for their children. He told the court that he and his wife have agreed that, if the court allows it, he should serve his sentence first. The former consultant also asked the court to consider his cooperation with authorities, noting that as recently as

County, said the office would not comment on whether there was an investigation. News of the investigation prompted Gov. Sam Brownback to issue a statement, saying he was “deeply concerned about the recent media reports regarding the Kansas Bioscience Authority.” He said he supports the KBA's mission, “but we must leave no stone unturned to ensure the integrity and success of that mission.” His office would not comment beyond the statement. Wagle, who is chairwoman of the Senate Commerce Committee, has held several hearings during which she has been critical of the size of salaries and bonuses paid to Thornton and others at the KBA. Thornton receives $265,000 per year. KBA officials have said his salary is in line with what similar positions pay in other states.

Wagle also has criticized some of the investments made by the agency. The KBA is in charge of investing $581 million in tax funds to attract high-tech bioscience companies in Kansas. On Friday, during a hearing on the KBA, Wagle released numerous documents in which she raised questions about Thornton's links to economic development in Illinois. She cited his membership on an Illinois science technology committee and as being listed in charge of a technology political action committee in that state. On Wednesday, Thornton said his affiliations with those efforts were over before 2000, which is six years before he came to the KBA. Wagle also mentioned a company that Thornton had been a leader in that went bankrupt and has been under scrutiny from federal officials. But Thornton said the company's troubles occurred after he disassociated himself from it and the company pursued

another course. That also occurred before he came to Kansas, he said. “To allege I was involved in any of that is ridiculous,” Thornton said. “It's the equivalent to say, ‘I've been to Japan and have been responsible for the tsunami,’” he said. Carlin and Thornton said Wagle made requests for information and before they could respond, she started a new round of allegations. Wagle has defended her handling of the committee meetings, but last week several senators said they were uncomfortable with the procedure. Carlin and Thornton say they have prepared a response to each of Wagle's assertions. She has scheduled another Commerce meeting on KBA for April 27 when the legislative session resumes.

But it never got much support. “We opposed it,” said Kimberly Winn, deputy director of the League of Kansas Municipalities. Winn said putting city and school board races on the November ballot would be a bad idea because it would minimize city elections. “If local elections were tied to a presidential ballot, you can about guess how much coverage the local elections would get,” Winn said. “Next to none.” But she said even more troubling is that it would introduce partisan politics into local elections. Candidates in city and school board elections do not run under a political party banner. They do in state and national elections. “I think it would inherently make those elections partisan,” Winn said. Other concerns that have been brought up about a change to November include that ballots — by the time you print everything from presidential candidates to local judges — would be really long. But some said even if local elections aren’t moved to November, we ought to still think about moving them on

Shew said he thought the talk of school consolidation would create more interest, but perhaps the issue only captivated parents directly impacted by possible district changes. Lindsey is not so sure. She said the large number of school board candidates was a good indicator that people found the issue important. “I just have a hard time believing that 13 percent turnout reflects the level of concern people have about this issue,” she said. But then again, she said, maybe it is that people are concerned but just don’t think government will end up doing anything to address their concerns. “There is so much visceral gobbledygook about how bad government is, why would you choose to participate?” Lindsey said. “We have to be It’s about the issues very careful because it can At the end of the day, sev- become a self-fulf illing eral election-watchers said prophecy.” there’s probably no simple — City reporter Chad Lawhorn can be answer.

Carrie Lindsey, a board member of the LawrenceDouglas County League of Women Voters, said maybe it is time to consider moving elections to Saturdays. “We live in a time and economic situation where people are expected to work,” Lindsey said. “If you have a job right now, you don’t take off to vote even if somebody says it is OK.” State law doesn’t allow local elections to be on a Saturday, but it does allow special elections — like for a bond issue — to take place any day of the week, Shew said. He said he has tried to encourage past special elections to be on a Saturday just to see if it would make a difference in turnout. “But I think there are a lot of people really tied to Tuesdays,” Shew said.

Gadhafi asks Obama to end air strikes Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi appealed directly to President Barack Obama on Wednesday to end what Gadhafi called “an unjust war.” He also wished Obama good luck in his bid for re-election next year. “You are a man who has enough courage to annul a wrong and mistaken action,” Gadhafi wrote in a rambling, three-page letter to Obama obtained by The Associated Press on Wednesday. “I am sure that you are able to shoulder the responsibility for that.” The White House confirmed the letter, but top officials shrugged it off. “I don’t think there is any mystery about what is expected from Mr. Gadhafi at this time,” Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton said, repeating U.S. and NATO demands that Gadhafi’s forces pull back and cease attacks. She also renewed a demand that Gadhafi step down from power and leave the country.

U.S., Colombia reach free trade deal After weeks of intense negotiations, the United States and Colombia have reached a deal on a free trade pact that the White House says is a vital part of President Barack Obama’s economic agenda. The administration said the agreement came together after the Colombians agreed to offer greater protections for workers and union leaders, an area of key concern for the U.S. It estimates final pact will boost U.S. exports to Colombia by more than $1 billion per year and could support thousands of American jobs. The deal has bipartisan support in Congress, which must approve the agreement before it can be implemented. 2 | TOKYO

Preventing blasts focus at nuclear plant After notching a rare victory by stopping highly radioactive water from flowing into the Pacific, workers at Japan’s flooded nuclear power complex turned to their next task early today: injecting nitrogen to prevent more hydrogen explosions. Nuclear officials said Wednesday there was no immediate threat of explosions like the three that rocked the Fukushima Dai-ichi plant not long after a massive tsunami hit on March 11, but their plans are a reminder of how much work remains to stabilize the complex. Workers are racing to cool down the plant’s reactors, which have been overheating since power was knocked out by the 9.0-magnitude earthquake and tsunami that killed as many as 25,000 people and destroyed hundreds of miles of coastline. 3 | NEW YORK CITY

Glenn Beck’s Fox show ending Glenn Beck later this year will end his Fox News Channel talk show, which has sunk in the ratings and has suffered from an advertiser boycott. Fox and Beck’s company, Mercury Radio Arts, said Wednesday they will stay in business creating other projects for Fox television and digital, starting with some documentaries Beck is preparing. Beck was a quick burn on Fox News Channel. Almost immediately after joining the network in January 2009, he doubled the ratings at his afternoon time slot. Fans found his conservative populism entertaining. He was popular with tea party Beck activists and drew thousands of people to the National Mall in Washington last August for a “restoring honor” rally. Yet some of his statements were getting him in trouble, and critics appealed to advertisers to boycott his show last summer after he said President Barack Obama had “a deep-seated hatred for white people.”

2011 UNITED WAY OF DOUGLAS COUNTY CAMPAIGN CO-CHAIRS VAL AND BETH STELLA have lived in Lawrence for more than 25 years. This year, the United Way campaign will focus on education, selfsufficiency and health.

Longtime residents chosen to lead fundraising, volunteering campaign By Andy Hyland ahyland@ljworld.com

United Way of Douglas County has announced that Val and Beth Stella will serve as cochairs for the agency’s 2011 campaign. The couple has lived in Lawrence for more than 25 years. He is a distinguished professor of pharmaceutical chemistry at Kansas University; she has a doctorate in developmental and child psychology, and has worked as a teacher and a researcher. Both have extensive backgrounds in community service as well. In the coming months, the co-chairs will seek to highlight the role of the United Way in the community and generate support for the annual fundraising effort. They will be hard at work in the months ahead building up to the campaign kick-off in August and the community campaign in September.

Without (the United Way) in our community, it would be a very different place and a much less happy place to live.” — 2011 United Way of Douglas County campaign co-chair Beth Stella This year, the United Way will be mobilizing community resources and building partnerships to focus on goals in three areas — education, selfsufficiency and health. “It’s not just about putting your thumb in the dike, it’s about repairing the dike,” Beth Stella said. Last year, the campaign raised more than $1.6 million, though the effort is not just about fundraising, the Stellas said. Volunteering matters, too. At KU, students contribute thousands of hours of volunteer work each year, Val Stella said, in addition to the contri-

butions of the faculty, staff and the rest of the university community. “Sometimes the community doesn’t realize the impact the university can have on our community,” he said. Colleen Gregoire, vice president and campaign director at United Way of Douglas County, said she looked forward to seeing the co-chairs’ fresh approach to the campaign. “It’s going to be a wonderful year to work with the Stellas,” she said. The co-chairs will seek to highlight the role the United Way plays in Lawrence to aid young people, teenagers, the elderly, the sick and more, Beth Stella said. “Without (the United Way) in our community, it would be a very different place and a much less happy place to live,” she said. — Higher education reporter Andy Hyland can be reached at 832-6388.

Groups included Awaken Manhattan, the Alliance Defense Fund, Concerned Women for America and Kansas Family Policy Council. Several of the groups also opposed the anti-discrimination ordinance, which is now in place in Manhattan.

Daniel Blomberg, who represented the ADF, fielded the majority of the questions asked by concerned and interested residents. He said if gender identity were to pass in Lawrence, several privacy issues could come into play. “My focus is constitutional law and religious liberty,” Blomberg said. “At the end of the day, sometimes religious liberty is bad for business, it is, and it’s still the right thing to do.” The meeting lasted more than two hours and closed with a question-and-answer session, Please see POLICY, page 4A

An attorney said Wednesday that a settlement has been reached in a lawsuit filed after a 20-year-old Tonganoxie High School graduate suffered brain damage during a 2009 dental procedure in Lawrence. “The matter has been settled with all parties, and the case will be dismissed,” said Rick Merker, an Overland Park attorney who represents Dr. Kirk Vincent, a Lawrence oral surgeon. A hearing is scheduled for 3 p.m. next Wednesday during which the parties will ask Douglas County Chief District Judge Robert Fairchild to dismiss the case. The lawsuit was filed in 2010 on behalf of Austin Stone and his guardians alleging oxygen and nitrous oxide lines were crossed during the design and construction of Vincent’s new office at 4811 Bob Billings Parkway. Stone had visited the office to get four wisdom teeth removed by Vincent on March 30, 2009, but the lawsuit alleged he was injured and had to be hospitalized. Stone was in a coma after the incident, and he is now legally blind and has other health issues, according to court records and past testimony in the case. Fairchild in January approved a $3 million settlement in the case between Stone’s family and Action Plumbing Inc. of Lawrence, which denied liability as part of the agreement. The plumbing company installed medical gas lines at Vincent’s new office. But several others, including Vincent and the city of Lawrence, remained as defendants in the lawsuit. The parties met with a mediator March 23, which led to the settlement, Merker said. “We had a very, very lengthy, very hard mediation session in this case,” he said. Merker said the amount of the settlement for private entities involved would remain confidential as part of the agreement. Lawrence attorney Jerry Cooley, who represents the city, said Wednesday he could not comment about the settlement until it had a judge’s approval. The city was included as a defendant because the lawsuit alleged inspectors should have caught the switch in the lines. Other than the city and Vincent, remaining defendants are Patterson Dental Supply Inc. of Topeka; Blanchard Design Group LLC of Lawrence, the project’s architect; general contractor Design Build Collaborative LLC of Lawrence; and mechanical engineers Hoss & Brown Inc. of Lawrence. — Reporter George Diepenbrock can be reached at 832-7144.

Energy conference at KU features governor By Christine Metz cmetz@ljworld.com

From the former president of one of the world’s largest oil companies to an executive of a company that makes electric vehicle charging stations, an energy conference at Kansas University will pull from a wide range of industry experts. But the Brownback most anticipated speaker will likely have more to say on state energy issues. Kicking off the conference will be Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback, who, shortly after taking office in January,

ENERGY CONFERENCE Gov. Sam Brownback’s speech is scheduled for 9 a.m., and John Hofmeister will speak at lunch. For the public, the cost to attend is $45. For students it is free. To register, visit the KU Energy Club’s website at kuenergyclub.com. promoted energy conservation and finding creative sources of renewable energy as ways to meet that state’s energy challenges. Brownback also has been a strong supporter of Sunflower Electric Power Corp.’s controversial plan to build a coal-fired power plant in southwest Kansas. The conference, which will be next Thursday at the Oread Hotel, 1200 Oread Ave., is intended to pull “as broad a range of speakers as

we can,” said Diane Silver with the KU Energy Council. “The governor’s ideas on energy are absolutely vital for the state,” Silver said. The conference is a collaborative effort between the KU Energy Club, a student group, and the KU Energy Council, an interdisciplinary academic organization made up of distinguished professors active in energy research, development and education. “The students are very interested in promoting conversation, discussion and debate on all aspects of energy,” Silver said. Along with Brownback, the conference’s keynote speaker will be John Hofmeister, a retired president from Shell Oil Co. and now CEO of the nonprofit Citizens for Affordable Energy. In his book “Why

BRIEFLY New task force to talk trash A newly appointed city task force will begin working today to develop a recommendation on how the city’s trash service should operate. The city’s Solid Waste Task Force will meet at 5:30 p.m. today at City Hall to discuss options for how the city should operate its trash and recycling services. City commissioners have asked the group to look at issues including privatization of the city-operated service, a new curbside recycling program and the use of automated trucks that could require people to start using special plastic carts instead of standard trash cans. The task force is expected to meet for the next several months to discuss the issues. The meetings are open to the public.

Man faces 5 child sex crime charges A Douglas County judge on Wednesday ordered a 31-yearold man to face a trial on five child sex crime charges. District Judge Michael Malone made the decision after a preliminary hearing in which prosecutor Amy McGowan, a chief assistant district attorney, presented evidence that the man sexually abused one girl and attempted to abuse her younger sister when the girls lived in Lawrence from 2007 to 2009. Police and prosecutors said the defendant is the exboyfriend of the girls’ mother and had lived with the family in Lawrence. The girls, who are now 13 and 11 years old, alleged the abuse occurred while their mother was at work.

d

According to testimony, the girls made allegations in 2010 about the abuse to family members, a social worker and police officers. The man had a Garden City address when he was arrested last month in Finney County and brought to Douglas County to face the charges here. He’s charged with three counts of aggravated indecent liberties with a child, one count of aggravated criminal sodomy and one count of attempted aggravated indecent liberties with a child. Malone scheduled an arraignment on the five charges for 4:30 p.m. Monday. The defendant faces 25 years to life on each charge due to the age of the victims. The Journal-World generally does not identify sex crime suspects unless they have been convicted.

We Hate the Oil Companies,” Hofmeister advocates for affordable and nonpartisan energy solutions. Other speakers include Larry Kinder, founder and president of Lily Pad EV, a company that sells public charging stations for electric vehicles, and representatives from the electric, wind and oil refinery industries. Panels will focus on carbon regulations, transportation and power generation. “We all need to start thinking about this — consumers, educators, policy makers, everyone,” Silver said. “If we don’t have efficient, sustainable forms of energy to use, our whole society is in trouble.” — Reporter Christine Metz can be reached at 832-6352.

KANSAS UNIVERSITY

CNN correspondent, Catholic author set to speak at alma mater By Andy Hyland ahyland@ljworld.com

A Vatican City correspondent for CNN and the National Catholic Reporter will speak at Kansas University next week. John Allen received a master’s degree from KU in religious studies in 1992. He will speak on “The Future Church” at 7:30 p.m. Monday at Woodruff Auditorium in the Kansas Union, 1301 Jayhawk Blvd. Allen became interested in reporting while serving as the adviser to a small student newspaper in a Catholic high school, he said. While there, Allen said he visited the Los Angeles Times to get a sense of what the profession was like. He said he saw smart, funny people who got to go out and have front-row access to the day’s most interesting events, and then came back and wrote about them. “It just hit me like a sledgehammer,” he said. Allen’s popular weekly column in the Reporter, “All Things Catholic,” is known as one of the best sources for

information about the church, said Tim Miller, a KU religious studies professor. “He’s got terrific contacts high and low in the church, up to and including the pope,” Miller said. He has also written several books on the Catholic church, including one on the current pope before he became pope, Miller said. The title of his lecture comes from his most recent book, “The Future Church: How Ten Trends Are Revolutionizing the Catholic Church.” He has covered how the church has handled ongoing allegations of sex abuse in the priesthood, the church’s reaction to the crisis in Libya and debate about the pope’s statements about the use of condoms. Allen said trends like the global shift of Catholic adherents from Europe and North America to the southern hemisphere and the rise of global Islam will continue to have an effect on the church in the years to come. — Higher education reporter Andy Hyland can be reached at 832-6388.

Massachusetts Street mainstay. The Bay Leaf, 717 Mass., is closing after 35 years in business, owner Geri Riekhof confirmed Wednesday. “It is a very sad thing,” Riekhof said. “I go from sobbing and feeling like there was a death in the family to then telling myself that it is a passage of time thing and the retail world is just changing. At least I got to be part of it when it was still a thrill.” Riekhof said the Internet has done much to take the thrill out of the business. She said consumers need to understand what Internet purchases are doing to locally owned stores. She said legislators also have to figure out a way to fairly tax Internet purchases. “The Internet is what is killing us,” Riekhof said. “It makes it so easy to shop without paying sales tax, without paying shipping, and they can still undercut us on price. It is killing local businesses everywhere.” Other downtown retailers said the Internet issue has become a bigger one as the economy has tightened. “I don’t think people real-

Victim of financial abuse finds new help

Jury gets fatality case against Wichita officer

A 95-year-old Ottawa woman listed as the victim in a Franklin County case — alleging a man abused his authority of her power of attorney from 2006 to 2007— has a different conservator now overseeing her finances. Aislynn Bellinger said Tuesday that since March 2010 she has served as conservator and guardian for Edna Brouhard, who lives in Ottawa. The Kansas Attorney General’s office has filed two counts of mistreatment of a dependent adult against 64-year-old Guadalupe Mora of Ottawa, accusing him of using undue influence and false representation to pay himself and others more than $100,000 after Brouhard had given him power of attorney. Prosecutors have provided few other details about the case. The witness list includes staffers who track records for several businesses and the Franklin County treasurer’s office. Officials in Franklin County and the Kansas Department of Social and Rehabilitation Services initially investigated the case. Mora was still in custody Tuesday after a Franklin County judge set his bond last week at $20,000 cash or surety. He is next due in court at 9 a.m. Thursday.

WICHITA — Jury deliberations have begun in the vehicular homicide trial of a Wichita police officer. Lawyers for Officer Garrett Shaddix rested Wednesday without calling any witnesses. The misdemeanor charge stems from the December 2009 death of 30-year-old Christopher Perkins, whose vehicle collided with a patrol car Shaddix was driving on the way to a disturbance call. Prosecution witnesses testified Shaddix was driving up to 73 mph in a 40 mph zone without his flashing lights or siren when Perkins turned in front of him at an intersection. The jury went home Wednesday night after deliberating about two hours.

So many people decide to live in Lawrence because of Massachusetts Street.” Riekhof plans to immediately begin having a goingout-of-business sale, and expects that the store will close in the next 45 days. Other factors besides Internet competition have contributed to the store’s decline. The store previously was at 725 Mass. but moved to its current location in 2008. The new space was about 2.5 times bigger and allowed the store to add cooking classes. Riekhof said the move was ill-timed, as the economy soured just a few months later. She said her landlord — recently elected City Commissioner Bob Schumm — had made several accommodations to try to keep her as a tenant, but ultimately sales

— Geri Riekhof, owner of The Bay Leaf fell to the point that Riekhof decided the business was no longer feasible. Riekhof — who fell in love with the store in the 1980s while working for previous owners Anne Yetman and Gunda Hiebert — also said downtown businesses need to do a better job of banding together to compete. She said she was disappointed that more retailers did not agree to have later hours during the holiday retail season. She said she would have liked later hours at her shop year-round but found it difficult to justify it if there only were going to be a handful of retailers open. “You have to have a critical mass,” said Riekhof, who spent 10 years as a manager with the Helzberg Diamond chain in Kansas City. “It was frustrating that as a group we couldn’t get on the same page about how late we need to stay open to compete with the malls that are in the area.”

A Lawrence man accused of drunken driving and crashing into an optometrist’s office last week had a bloodalcohol content of 0. 109, according to a Lawrence police accident report released Wednesday. Leith Jon Stevenson, 27, was arrested March 29 on charges of reckless driving and DUI and later bonded out of jail. He’s scheduled to appear in Lawrence Municipal Court on Wednesday. A black Chevrolet Camaro at 4:50 p.m. crashed into a wall of a frame-fitting room at Lawrence Family Vision Clinic, 3111 W. Sixth St. Police said two people inside were knocked across the room, but no one suffered major injuries. According to the accident report, Stevenson, who was driving the vehicle, was not injured. He told officers he had just pulled onto the outside east lane on Sixth Street

from Gateway Drive when he quickly accelerated the car and said he “didn’t know what happened next, but stated his vehicle left the roadway, drove down a large hill and into the north wall” of the business. The report says Stevenson tested positive for alcohol in a preliminary breath test and the evidentiary test showed his blood-alcohol content was above 0.08, the legal limit in Kansas. There was no evidence of drug impairment. Stevenson declined comment Wednesday afternoon and said he had hired an attorney for his municipal court case. A staffer at the clinic Wednesday said the wall had been repaired and that the fitting room did not close after the accident. A statement on the clinic’s website said about 300 frames and two workstations were destroyed, which could limit what the business could offer for another week.

Lawmaker Synthetic drugs such as K2 send thousands to ER heard citing title in traffic stops By Jim Salter and Jim Suhr

Associated Press Writers

WICHITA (AP) — A state legislator from Wichita stopped for speeding has tried at least three times to use her position to get out of traffic tickets, videos of the encounters show. During one stop in January 2010, Oletha Faust-Goudeau asked a state trooper not to ticket her for speeding, at one point saying, “I’m asking you as a state senator,” The Wichita Eagle reported Wednesday. The nearly 18-minute recording of the exchange between the legislator and state Trooper Beau Wallace was captured by the trooper’s in-car camera and his belt microphone and was obtained by the newspaper through an open records request. After the trooper told her he was citing her for driving 84 mph in a 70 mph zone, Faust-Goudeau, who is black, asked the I’m asking trooper if the stop you this: If was racial you would profiling. just give me a The trooper replied, warning “No, today. Um, ma’am.” I’m asking Faustyou as a state Goudeau said in a senator.” statement Tuesday — Sen. Oletha Faust- that it is Goudeau within the discretion of a police officer whether to issue a ticket or warning. “I never intended to use my position to influence the decision made by the officer,” she said. The newspaper also reported last month on two other traffic stops for speeding, in February 2011 and October 2009. Those videos showed the lawmaker was not given a ticket after identifying herself as a state senator and telling officers that she knew the Wichita police chief and other Wichita city officials. Court records show FaustGoudeau pleaded no contest and paid a $140 fine for the 2010 turnpike traffic stop. In the video, the trooper told her he clocked her going 84 mph in a 70 mph zone near the service area north of Emporia. She said she couldn’t have reached that speed. After he asked for her driver’s information, she told him early in the stop, “I’m a state senator, and I just left Topeka, and let me find everything that you need, honey.” She also told the trooper that she had just left the Legislature and that she had just been with Gov. Mark Parkinson. Later, after Wallace explained how he checked her speed, she said, “I’m asking you this: If you would just give me a warning today. Um, I’m asking you as a state senator.” Then she asked for immunity because it was during the legislative session. The trooper replied, “I can’t delay you, but you’re not immune to getting a citation for speeding.” She tried again later to avoid a ticket, showing the trooper a Wichita Police Department “challenge coin” and saying, “So the chief of police has given me that. You’re going to override that and not have mercy on me at all,” she said, laughing. This marked the second time she was recorded while trying to use a challenge coin during a traffic stop. During the October 2009 stop, she had also shown a Wichita police off icer a Wichita police challenge coin and said that Police Chief Norman Williams gave it to her and told her to “use it” if she had to. Williams has said he gave Faust-Goudeau a police challenge coin several years ago, but that as with other people, he gave the coin only as a goodwill gesture, not as a getout-of-trouble pass.

INDIANOLA, IOWA — Until he tried a marijuana look-alike product called “K2,” David Rozga’s most dubious decision was getting a Green Bay Packers tattoo on his shoulder. Then the 18-year-old athlete and band standout got high on the fake pot last June and complained to a friend “that he felt like he was in hell,” his father said. Though he had never suffered from depression, the teenager went home, found a shotgun and killed himself — one of at least nine U.S. deaths in the last year that authorities suspect were caused by synthetic products designed to mimic marijuana, cocaine and other illegal drugs. An Associated Press analysis shows that the substances are increasingly causing users to fall seriously ill, with some suffering seizures and hallucinations. Available in many head shops for as little as $10, the synthetic drugs are often

SYNTHETIC SUBSTANCES THAT MIMIC MARIJUANA, cocaine and other illegal drugs, such as K2, are making users across the nation seriously ill, causing seizures and hallucinations so intense that thousands of them seek help at emergency rooms. packaged as incense or bath salts, but they do nothing to perfume the air or soften water. As more Americans experiment with them, the results are becoming evident at hospitals: a sharp spike in the number of users who show up with problems ranging from labored breathing and rapid heartbeats to extreme para-

noia and delusions. The symptoms can persist for days. “These kids weren’t looking for anything bad to happen,” Mike Rozga said of his son’s death. “The truth is they didn’t know what they had gotten themselves into.” At the request of the AP, the American Association of Poison Control Centers analyzed nationwide figures on calls related to synthetic drugs. The findings showed an alarming increase in the number of people seeking medical attention. At least 2,700 people have fallen ill since January, compared with fewer than 3,200 cases in all of 2010. At that pace, medical emergencies related to synthetic drugs could go up nearly fivefold by the end of the year. “Many of the users describe extreme paranoia,” said Dr. Mark Ryan, director of the Louisiana Poison Center. “The recurring theme is monsters, demons and aliens. A lot of them had suicidal thoughts.” The recent surge in activity has not gone unnoticed by law enforcement and elected officials.

The Drug Enforcement Administration recently used emergency powers to outlaw five chemicals found in synthetic pot, placing them in the same category as heroin and cocaine. But manufacturers are quick to adapt, often cranking out new formulas that are only a single molecule apart from the illegal ones. On Wednesday, the Senate’s Caucus on International Narcotics Control held a hearing in Washington to discuss curbing the growth of synthetics. “This is a whole new method of trafficking,” testified Joseph T. Ranznazzisi, deputy assistant administrator in the DEA’s office of diversion control. “We’ve never experienced this before, when the product is just on the shelf.” Rozga implored lawmakers to act swiftly to prevent more deaths: “We are not doing enough, and we are not moving quickly enough.” Recreational drugs created in the laboratory have been around at least since the middle of the 20th century, when

LSD was first studied. But these latest examples emerged only a few years ago, starting in Europe. The products were typically made in China, India and other Asian nations and soon arrived in Britain and Germany, according to DEA spokesman Rusty Payne. In the United States, fake marijuana was last year’s big seller, marketed under brands such as “K2” or “Spice.” This year, the trend is “bath salts” with names like “Purple Wave” and “Bliss.” Besides being cheap and easily obtained, they do not show up in common drug tests. Synthetic marijuana typically involves dried plant material sprayed with one of several chemical compounds, most of which were created by a Clemson University scientist for research purposes in the 1990s. The compounds were never tested on humans. It’s packaged to look like pot, and users typically smoke it, but experts say the high is more comparable to cocaine or LSD.

Parties split as Progress, but no deal to avert shutdown House panel OKs 2012 GOP budget WASHINGTON, D.C.

By David Espo

Associated Press Writer

WASHINGTON — With time growing short, President Barack Obama said Wednesday night that he remains confident that a government shutdown can be avoided this weekend if negotiators can build on constructive talks held at the White House. Differences remain despite the progress, but Obama announced that talks would continue through the night in hopes of avoiding a government shutdown this weekend. “It’s going to require a sufficient sense of urgency,” Obama said, “to complete a deal and get it passed and avert a shutdown.” Obama emerged before reporters to declare his differences with the House Republicans were narrowing but that both sides were still stuck in an impasse. “I thought the meetings were frank, they were constructive, and what they did was narrow the issues and clarify the issues that are still outstanding,” Obama said. “I remain confident that if we’re serious about getting something done, we should be able to complete a deal and get it passed and avert a shutdown. But it’s going to require a sufficient sense of urgency from all parties involved.” After the White House session, House Speaker John Boehner said, “We did have a productive conversation this evening. We do have some honest differences, but I do

think we made some progress. But I want to reiterate: There is no agreement on a number and there’s no agreement on the policy matters. But there’s an attempt on both sides to continue to work together to try to resolve this.” The pressure built Wednesday as Boehner announced House Republicans would approve a stopgap spending bill blending $12 billion in new domestic spending cuts with the fullyear Pentagon budget as the price for keeping the government open for another week. Boehner’s move appeared aimed at shifting political blame if a shutdown occurs, but it angered Democrats who felt that talks were progressing. “I think this is the responsible thing to do for the U.S. Congress, and I would hope the Senate can pass it and the president can sign it into law,” Boehner said. He also criticized Obama, though saying he likes the commander in chief personally. “The president isn’t leading,” Boehner said. “He didn’t lead on last year’s budget, and he’s not leading on this year’s budget.”

Obama has already ruled out the weeklong measure Republicans intend to push through the House, and Senate Democrats have labeled it a non-starter. Republican officials said the details of the bill could yet change. But passage of any interim measure is designed to place the onus on the Democratic-controlled Senate to act if a shutdown is to be avoided. The White House used its unmatched megaphone to emphasize the stakes involved in the negotiations, arranging a briefing for the presidential press corps on the ramifications of a partial government shutdown. The officials who spoke did so on condition of anonymity, under rules set by White House aides eager to apply pressure to congressional negotiators. The officials said that military personnel at home and abroad would receive one week’s pay instead of two in their next checks. Among those affected would be troops in Iraq, Afghanistan and the region around Libya. Tax audits would be suspended — welcome news to some, no doubt — but there were unhappy tidings for others. Income tax returns filed on paper would pile up at the IRS, and refunds would be delayed as a result. National parks would close, as would the Smithsonian Institution and its worldclass collection of museums clustered along the National Mall within sight of the Capitol. Officials were less clear

about the Cherry Blossom Festival, scheduled for this weekend in Washington. NASA spokesman Bob Jacobs said he was unable to predict what the impact would be on preparations for the shuttle Endeavour’s flight on April 29, or Atlantis’ trip into space on June 28. As for the broader talks, it appeared progress had been made both on spending cuts demanded by Republicans and on a series of unrelated provisions they attached to legislation that was approved almost six weeks ago. A House-passed measure called for $61 billion in cuts, and until recently, the two sides had been working on a framework for $33 billion. Boehner pronounced that insufficient on Tuesday, and floated a $40 billion figure instead. Democrats disputed any suggestion that they had acceded to that, but some, speaking privately, conceded they were willing to go higher than $33 billion, based on the make-up of the cuts included. “I think we’ve made some progress. But we’re not finished, not by a long shot,” Boehner told reporters after a closed-door meeting with the Republican rank and file, the second of the week he has called as he maneuvers his way through the first significant test for a rambunctious new majority determined to cut spending. Reid offered no details in an early morning speech that jabbed Boehner.

WASHINGTON — The Republican-led House Budget Committee approved a $3.5 trillion budget for 2012 on Wednesday that was hailed by its GOP authors as an end to a federal spending binge but savaged by Democrats as an assault on retirees and the poor. The party-line 22-16 vote underscored the sharp partisan divide over the blueprint, crafted by the committee’s chairman, Rep. Paul Ryan, RWis., at a time of record federal red ink. The measure lays the groundwork for a decade of cuts in spending, taxes and deficits, tempered by a shift in medical costs from the government to future retirees and a reshaping of the two chief federal health programs for the elderly and poor, Medicare and Medicaid. The budget’s approval, which followed a daylong debate by the committee, sends the plan to the full House, where GOP leaders hope for a vote in the coming days. Though the blueprint covers the entire reach of government, committee members focused much of their attention on health and other social programs, from which Republicans were proposing to wring hundreds of billions

BUSINESS AT A GLANCE

Notable ● Portugal asked for a bailout Wednesday to relieve its crushing debt, joining Greece and Ireland by becoming the third eurozone nation to seek outside help amid a bruising financial crisis. Prime Minister Jose Socrates went on national television to announce that Portugal must take international assistance to save its rapidly deteriorating economy, after months of insisting that he would not ask for a bailout. Socrates said his caretaker government asked “for financial help, to ensure financing for our country, for our financial system and for our economy.” He did not say how much Portugal would seek, but analysts have predicted Portugal will need up to $114 billion. That amount is bearable for Europe’s finances unless other nations — notably Spain — end up asking for help. Portugal urgently needs the rescue because it has been forced to pay increasingly unsustainable interest rates to persuade investors to buy its debt. Banks from Spain to Germany are heavily exposed to the possibility of a Portuguese default, which would threaten the very existence of the zone.

Rising oil prices beginning to hurt U.S. economy

By Paul Wiseman Associated Press Writer

W A S H I N G T O N — Just when companies have f inally stepped up hiring, rising oil prices are threatening to halt the U.S. economy’s gains. Some economists are scaling back their estimates for growth this year, in part because flat wages have left households struggling to pay higher gasoline prices. Oil has topped $108 a barrel, the highest price since 2008. Regular unleaded gasoline now goes for an average $3.69 a gallon, according to AAA’s daily fuel gauge survey, up 86 cents from a year ago. The higher costs have been driven by unrest in Libya and other oil-producing Middle East countries, along with rising energy demand from a strengthening U.S. economy. Airlines, shipping companies and other U.S. businesses have been squeezed. The rising prices are further straining an economy struggling with high unemployment and a depressed housing market. “The surge in oil prices since the end of last year is already doing significant damage to the economy,” says Mark Zandi, chief economist at Moody’s Analytics. Unlike other kinds of consumer spending, gasoline purchases provide less benef it for the U.S. economy. About half the revenue flows to oil exporting countries like Saudi Arabia and Canada, though U.S. oil companies and gasoline retailers also benefit. For consumers, more expensive energy siphons away money that would otherwise be used for household

I try to leave the car parked at home all day Saturday. I’d rather not spend the money on gasoline.” — Curt Lindsay, a commuter purchases, from cars and furniture to clothing and vacations. High energy prices are “putting a drain on consumer budgets,” says James Hamilton at the University of California, San Diego. “To the extent they’re having to spend more on gasoline, they have to make cutbacks elsewhere.” Two-thirds of Americans say they expect rising gasoline prices to cause hardship for them or their families in the next six months, according to a new Associated Press-GfK Poll. The telephone poll conducted March 24-28 had a sampling error margin of plus or minus 4.2 percentage points. Seventy-one percent say they’re cutting back on other expenses to make up for higher pump prices. Sixty-four percent say they’re driving less. And 53 percent say they’re changing vacation plans to stay closer to home. “I try to leave the car parked at home all day Saturday,” says Curt Lindsay, who commutes an hour each way to his job as a computer systems administrator outside Washington, D.C. “I’d rather not spend the money on gasoline.” Since gasoline prices topped $3 a gallon, Lindsay has also been trying to drive more slowly to conserve fuel.

of dollars in savings over the next 10 years. Ryan said that with sky-high deficits, the government needs to limit its mission to programs that are truly needed. “We don’t want to turn the safety net into a hammock that lulls people to lives of complacencies and dependencies, into a permanent condition where they never get on their feet,” he said. Rep. Chris Van Hollen of Maryland, the panel’s top Democrat, said Republicans were protecting tax breaks for corporations and the wealthy at the expense of the middle class and the poor. The Republican budget proposes whittling the current 35 percent top tax rate on individuals and businesses to 25 percent. “It doesn’t reform Medicare, it deforms and dismantles it,” Van Hollen said of the GOP’s budget. As for Medicaid, the budget “rips apart the safety net” for poor and older people, he added. The budget is a nonbinding road map whose taxing and spending changes are supposed to be enacted in later, separate legislation. But Ryan’s plan has no chance of being approved by the Democratic-run Senate, making it more of a statement of priorities that candidates are likely to embrace or attack during the 2012 campaigns.

Turnout defeat It’s impossible for us to see a 13.4 percent voter turnout as “pretty good.”

T

uesday’s city and school elections produced individual winners and losers, but a 13.4 percent voter turnout has to be viewed as a significant defeat for the community as a whole. Douglas County Clerk Jamie Shew called it a “pretty good turnout,” but it’s hard to see an election that draws only about a seventh of registered voters to the polls as any kind of success. It’s cold comfort to know that other Kansas communities are in the basement with us. A quick check Wednesday morning found that Tuesday’s local elections drew an 11.67 percent turnout in Topeka and 12.7 percent in Wichita. Manhattan, on the other hand, had a comparatively stellar turnout of 21.5 percent. That exceeds even Shew’s hoped-for 20 percent turnout figure. Riley County election officials said they were pleased with the turnout. Like Lawrence their ballots included no special election questions, just candidate races. Even though we’re not alone, such low voter turnout isn’t something the community should simply accept. Officials and community members should put their heads together, look at what other communities are doing and try to come up with ways to increase voter participation. To all the candidates on Tuesday’s ballot, we say thank you for your willingness to mount a campaign and to serve in the community’s most important elected positions. It’s never easy to be an elected official but the challenges are even greater in the current difficult economy. To the candidates who were elected, we wish you well in your new positions. Two city commissioners elected Tuesday have served on that body before, but the other winners in city and school races now will learn about the differences between running a campaign and actually serving on an elected body. Many issues that may have seemed pretty black and white to the candidates will take on various shades of gray after they take office. Only 13 percent of registered voters turned out for Tuesday’s election but a far greater segment of the community now will be watching and judging the actions of the City Commission and school board. Several candidates put a high priority on involving the community in the public decision-making process. That’s a good goal, but when only 13 percent of community voters care enough to show up for the election, it may be difficult to attract a large public participation in making policy. The voters — at least a few of them — have spoken. New city commissioners will take office next week and school board members on July 1. We hope the city and the school district will see progress and success during their tenure — and that two years from now, we’ll all see both a stellar list of candidates and a larger voter turnout for local elections.

U.S. mission in Libya lacks definition WASHINGTON — Several weeks ago, when President Obama reportedly assured congressional leaders that America’s intervention in Libya would involve “days, not weeks,” skeptics mistakenly worried about mission creep. They should have feared mission gallop. Or perhaps mission meander. At about this point in foreign policy misadventures, the usual question is: What is Plan B? Today’s question is: What was Plan A? When Obama inserted America into what was, and ostensibly still is, a pre-emptive war to protect Libyan civilians from Libya’s government, he neglected to clarify a few things, such as: Do the armed rebels trying to overthrow that government still count as civilians? That is, however, irrelevant if the assumption is that no Libyan is safe as long as Moammar Gaddafi is in power. If so, regime change is a logical imperative of humanitarian imperialism. Have you noticed how many of the U.S. armed services’ recruiting appeals, on television and in advertisements in airports and elsewhere, show this or that service engaged in humanitarian relief operations, distributing food and medicine? These present the U.S. military as the Red Cross with, for reasons that are unclear, weapons. Given that some of the services sometimes seem reluctant to recruit for their primary mission — maintaining a credible capability for war — it is not so odd that the Obama

administration flinches from the word “war.” The administration has retired the short-lived and redundant obfuscation “kinetic military action,” which supposedly described what all those warships and war aircraft were doing with all those munitions. It validated George Orwell’s axiom (in his 1946 essay “Politics and the English Language”) that “the great enemy of clear language is insincerity.” Now the administration must decide how to characterize those on whose behalf we have gone to war. They are rebels, and America, born in rebellion and culturally disposed to skepticism about

authority, is inclined to think kindly of rebels. This was particularly so during the 1960s, especially on college campuses. On one of them, Antioch, the students, full of idealism and empty of information, gathered to watch “To Die in Madrid,” a documentary about the Spanish Civil War. When the narrator intoned about a column of soldiers, “The rebels advanced on Madrid,” the students cheered, unaware that the rebels were Gen. Franco’s fascists. Not all rebels are admirable, so when the administration said there would be no American boots on the ground in Libya, it left room for American shoes worn by CIA operatives. Evidently some are now among the insurgents, humming a Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein tune: “Getting to know you, getting to know all about you. Getting to like you, getting to hope you like me.” Perhaps the CIA operatives should have stayed home and talked to some senators who seem to know what’s what. Sen. John Kerry, D-Mass., refers to the Libyan rebels as part of a “prodemocracy movement.” Perhaps they are. Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., must think so. Serving, as usual, as Sancho Panza to Sen. John McCain’s Don Quixote, Graham said last Sunday (on “Face the Nation”), “We should be taking the fight to Tripoli.” But not (yet) to Yamoussoukro, capital of the Ivory Coast. Members of the Congressional Libyan Liberation Caucus — it does not

formally exist (yet) — presumably subscribe to the doctrine “R2P.” That is the accepted shorthand for “responsibility to protect.” This notion is central to humanitarian imperialism, a project that certainly promises to provide steady work. The Libyan venture is coinciding with a humanitarian disaster in the Ivory Coast, where corpses are piling up by the hundreds and the fighting is producing displaced persons by the hundreds of thousands. They will have to make do with U.N. and French interveners until America’s humanitarian imperialists can get around to them. Obama’s inability, or reluctance, to say clearly why we are involved in Libya or under what conditions the mission might be said to have been accomplished has occasioned comparisons with Iraq. A more apposite comparison is to Jimmy Carter’s invasion of Iran — a nation twice as large as France — with eight helicopters. This became emblematic of a floundering president out of his depth. As Calvin Coolidge, who knew his depth, was leaving the presidency in March 1929, he said, “Perhaps one of the most important accomplishments of my administration has been minding my own business.” Before an administration can do that, it must define its responsibilities and competence with sufficient modesty to acknowledge that some things are not its business. — George Will is a columnist for Washington Post Writers Group.

So, let’s say there’s this truly fine individual standing there across the room and you’d like his or her name, number, and e-mail address, but don’t want the hassle of walking over and risking rejection. There’s an app for that. Well, not yet, but eventually there will be. CNN reported last week that Google is at work on a facial recognition application that would allow you to snap a portrait of a given somebody with your cellphone and receive that person’s name and contact information. The function would be added to Goggles, an existing application that allows users to snap a picture of an object or building and have it identified. And here, Google would want you to know that none of this is imminent. Though the technology has existed for years and there is a demand for it, Google says it has no plans to make the app available until or unless it can find a way to address the obvious privacy concerns. At a minimum, the app would require an opt-in clause, meaning a person would have to specifically agree to allow access to his or her information. Google issued the following statement: “As we’ve said for more than a year, we will not add facial recognition to Goggles unless we have strong privacy protections in place. We’re still working on them. We have nothing to announce at this time.” Duly noted. And consider me not mollified in the least. In the f irst place, no one allowed me to opt out before that picture of my home appeared on Google Maps. In the second place, this is the

The second is human nature: If a thing can be done, rest assured it eventually will. So eventually, yes, you will be able to snap that stranger’s picture and know her name and address. And so it goes. We live ever more interconnected lives on a shrinking planet where our old ideas about privacy are not so much changed as they are shoved aside. Make way. The new is coming through. And that sentimental notion that you should be able to control how much of your life the world has access to goes the way of analog televisions and rotary dial telephones. This is not a Luddite complaint, not the complaint of someone who has never used Google to locate an unfamiliar address before getting behind the wheel. Rather, it is the complaint of someone who believes that a person has a sacred right to his or her own self and a fundamental right to be left alone. But before our very eyes, these rights are being Facebooked, spammed and texted down to nothing. Now, there’s this. And in the face of concerns about intrusion, security and privacy, Google says, in effect: Trust us. Which raises an obvious question: Why?

County Attorney Riling has asked Judge Smart to parole the county prisoners so far as jail sentences are concerned. This will enable the county to put them to work to work out their jail fines and costs. Unless this is done it means an endless expense on the part of the county. Mr. Riling is expecting an answer to his request every mail. The best interests of the county will be subserved by having this request granted." "'We did not have any peaches last year,' said W.A.

Kansas murderer has other charges dropped LEAVENWORTH — Charges have been dropped against a convicted murderer in Kansas for crimes he was accused of while awaiting his murder trial. Thirty-three-year-old Matthew Astorga was jailed in Leavenworth County when he was charged with battering another inmate and a county prison officer in separate incidents. Astorga was convicted of first-degree murder of Ruben Rodriguez in December 2008 in Leavenworth. He was sentenced to life in prison with no eligibility for parole for 50 years. Leavenworth County Attorney Todd Thompson says charges in the two battery cases were dropped because the victims didn’t want to proceed. He says the county also wanted Astorga out of its jail because he causes too much trouble. The Leavenworth Times reports that state corrections records list 18 disciplinary reports for Astorga since October 2009.

Now Delivering For Lunch!

Robinson, Taylor returning to KU Tom Keegan tkeegan@ljworld.com

Good move, T-Rob So many mock drafts and insider columns from which to choose on the Internet. A lesser man than Thomas Robinson would choose to read the projections and opinions that say he already is Superman, ready for instant stardom as a professional basketball player. A lesser man than Robinson might listen to one of the many, many voices working on behalf of agents eager to tell him that he must leap to the NBA now because he’s already a lottery pick. The NBA drafts on potential, remember? As usual, Robinson did the smart thing. He decided to kill speculation and made it clear Wednesday he was returning to Kansas University to play his junior season. Was he ready for the NBA? Ready to make NBA dollars, yes. Ready to play NBA minutes, no. He’s too raw, and he knows it. Robinson wants more out of basketball than to get rich from it. He wants to grow into an outstanding player. That much is obvious by the way he talks about the game, the way he plays it with such passion, the way he attaches himself to assistant coach Danny Manning to draw as much knowledge from him as possible. Some players risk their marketability by staying in school too long. They get exposed as less of a prospect the longer they play without improving weaknesses. Julian Wright, had he returned to Kansas for his junior season, might have fallen into that category. His explosive jumping made him a good rebounder, but the more you saw him run the floor (not nearly as fast as Darrell Arthur) or slide his feet on defense (not nearly as quick as Brandon Rush) or dribble and shoot (not nearly as skilled at the former as he was eager to do it) the less he looked like a future NBA starter. Wright might have fallen in the draft had he stayed an extra year, but he would have improved more playing in college than sitting in the pros, and he would be a better player. Robinson’s a different case. The more he plays, the better he becomes. His ceiling is higher than Wright’s ever was, and he already does one thing better than Wright, an excellent passer, ever did anything. Robinson’s one of the best rebounders on the planet, and that’s not going to change. Morehead State’s Kenneth Faried, who broke Tim Duncan’s career rebounding record and led the nation this season, averaged 17 boards per 40 minutes, Robinson 18. Robinson has shown flashes of developing a mid-range jumper and can hone it better playing 30 minutes a game for Kansas than sitting on an NBA bench. The same can be said for his ball-handling. Playing as a featured scorer will force him to develop better go-to scoring moves. The joint announcement of the returns of Tyshawn Taylor and Robinson puts an eighth consecutive Big 12 title in play for Kansas, especially if Taylor performs as consistently well as he did after returning from a late-season suspension. All signs point to an early entry for Marcus and Markieff Morris, a move difficult to question in a normal, non-lockout year. If Josh Selby follows them out the door, KU coach Bill Self would do well to recruit a three-point shooter to go with a pair of tall guys already high on his wish list (DeAndre Daniels and Otto Porter?). Never forget, Kansas doesn’t rebuild. It reloads.

By Gary Bedore gbedore@ljworld.com

Thomas Robinson, who was considered a possible f irstround pick in the 2011 NBA Draft, and Tyshawn Taylor, a secondrounder at best according to various websites, have decided to return to Kansas University for the 2011-12 school year. Robinson, a 6-foot-9 junior-tobe from Washington, D.C., and Taylor, a 6-3 senior-to-be from Hoboken, N.J., made their intentions known Wednesday afternoon. “This is certainly not any new news to us, but I felt it was unfair for us to make a statement until I got back from the Final Four

and visited with them individually,” KU coach Bill Self said. He was given no reason to believe either player was seriously considering turning pro. “To be quite candid, we’re still smarting over the fact that we lost in the Elite Eight and were so close to putting ourselves in a position to win another (national) championship. We’re disappointed, but one thing about it, the season is officially over for everybody. Even if we played in the championship and even if we played in the Final Four, the season would be over now. “With that, it’s a new team, a new season and a fresh start. I’m real excited about these two commitments to putting us in a

situation to having great success again,” Self added. KU now is assured of returning its starting point guard in Taylor, who averaged 9.3 points and dished 4.6 assists per game for the Jayhawks, who went 35-3 and won the Big 12 regular-season and postseason tourney titles before falling to VCU in the NCAA Tournament Elite Eight. “We had a great year,” Taylor said. “But since the season ended disappointingly, there has been a lot of speculation with fans and on the Internet on what we were going to do. The bottom line is, we’re going to work very hard this offseason and put ourselves in a position to play in that game again and come out with a different result.

“The year was up and down for me, but I feel like I finished on a strong note, and I am ready to carry that momentum into the summer and next year try to have a better season than we had this year,” added Taylor, a Bob Cousy Award finalist who scored in double figures in five of his last Robinson six games. Robinson averaged 7.6 points (off 60.1 percent shooting) and 6.4 rebounds a game his sophomore season. “This was the most trying year of my life,” said Robinson, whose mom, grandmother and grandfather died during the season. “I want to thank everybody, and I Please see ROBINSON, page 3B Taylor

KU PITCHER THOMAS TAYLOR (11) DELIVERS against Missouri. Wednesday, Taylor turned in his second straight dominating performance against the Tigers at Kauffman Stadium, this time in a 7-1 rout.

Kansan dominates Tigers at The K — again By Matt Tait mtait@ljworld.com

K A N S A S C I T Y , M O . — Call him Thomas “The Tiger Tamer” Taylor. Wednesday night at Kauffman Stadium, the Kansas University starting pitcher surpassed his stellar performance against the Tigers from 2010 with a career night that led the Jayhawks to a 7-1 victory over Missouri. The win was the fourth in four tries for the Jayhawks (13-16) over the Tigers (13-16) at the majorleague ballpark, but the dominance of that stat was nothing compared to the commanding performance Taylor delivered at The K for the second season in a row. In two career starts versus MU at Kauffman Stadium, Taylor has 2 given up just one run in 11 ⁄ 3 innings. Included in that span are three hits, three walks and 17 strikeouts. Wednesday, Taylor went six innings and gave up one run on one hit while striking out a career-high nine batters. Of the 119 pitches he threw, 76 were strikes. “You hand that ball to a kid who’s been a lifelong Royals fan, it’s a pretty special day in his life,” KU coach Ritch Price said of Taylor. “He went ball one on the first nine hitters, and then he found himself with the three strikeouts in the third inning. He was dominant from there on out.” Asked what it is that gets him going when pitching in the cavernous big-league ballpark , the Overland Park native pointed to his early memories of coming to watch the hometown Kansas City Royals. “I grew up around here, and I think I went to my first Royals game when I was 2,” Taylor said. “I’ve always wanted to pitch here, and tonight I just wanted to pitch as well as I did last year, and everything went well.” The Jayhawks struck first when

one point, Taylor struck out five consecutive Tigers. He retired the final batter of the second inning on a called strike, fanned the side in the third and led off the fourth with an overpowering strikeout of Mizzou’s Dane Opel. “I think I just tried to stop overthrowing and pound the zone lower, and everything went well after that,” Taylor said. “I started hitting my spots more and getting ahead in the count, and I think that really helped.” Taylor was not alone in keeping the Tigers’ bats quiet Wednesday night. Relievers Frank Duncan and Colton Murray pitched three innings without surrendering a hit to complete KU’s first combined one-hitter since April 2008. “We’ve been winning with pitching and defense all year,” Price said. “Every time we play a quality opponent, it’s been Duncan and Murray out of the bullpen.” Dreiling, the team’s utility man and a Free State High graduate, made the first outfield start of his college career. In addition, Waters, normally a corner outfielder, started in center field for the first time in his KU career. Also of note for Kansas was catcher James Stanfield extending his hitting streak to eight games. Wednesday’s victory over their arch-rival came as a relief for the Jayhawks, who were reeling from a 6-1 loss to Missouri State on Tuesday night, their second loss to the Bears in a week’s span. “(KU senior) Jimmy Waters came in yelling, ‘This is our season, fight for our season,’” Dreiling said. “It’s going well for us right now, now we just need to carry it into this weekend.” The Jayhawks will open a threegame series against Nebraska at 6 p.m. on Friday at Hoglund Ballpark.

first baseman Zac Elgie ripped an RBI double in the bottom of the first that scored Jimmy Waters, who walked. Mizzou tied the game on a sacrifice fly in the top of the second, but the Jayhawks broke it open after that. Jordan Dreiling (2-for-4, 2 RBIs) and Ka’iana Eldredge (1-for3, 2 RBIs) delivered RBIs in the three-run second inning, and Eldredge, Jake Marasco (1-for-3) and Chris Manship (0-for-2, sacrifice fly) added RBIs in the threerun third. “That was the key, getting on ’em early,” Dreiling said. “A lot of teams will deflate after you score seven runs on them, and we kind of coasted after we got to seven.” While the KU bats staked Taylor to a six-run lead, the 6-foot-3, 209pound third-year sophomore continued to cruise on the mound.

There’s plenty to be said about the Kansas University softball team’s tenacity. But there’s plenty more to say about what has gone wrong for KU since conference play started March 3. After getting flattened by No. 14 Oklahoma, 12-6 and 13-5, in Wednesday’s doubleheader, the Jayhawks (27-11 overall, 0-8 Big 12) are still winless in the league. “It’s always frustrating. It’s always kind of discouraging to get two losses in one night,” KU catcher Brittany Hile said. Though the Jayhawk offense busted out of a recent slump, none of KU’s pitchers were effective from the circle. Allie Clark and Ashley Spencer surrendered a combined 10 walks in the first game and also fell victim to five KU errors. Kristin Martinez lasted only three innings in Game Two, and neither Clark nor Spencer could hold back the potent Sooners (3110, 4-2) in relief. After smashing nine hits in Game One, OU teed off for 20 in Game Two — including five from Dani Dobbs and a grand slam from Keilani Ricketts, who also pitched five scoreless inning with 10 strikeouts to earn the win in the opener. Now the pitching staff, which was so dominant during KU’s 263 start, has a collective ERA of 7.88 in eight Big 12 contests and has yielded 82 hits in 501⁄3 innings. “We knew pitching was going to be a work in progress this year,” KU coach Megan Smith said. Down 8-0 in the first game, KU staved off being run-ruled with a six-run fifth inning — highlighted by a two-RBI double by Maggie Hull and a three-run homer by Laura Vickers. “I don’t ever want them to lose that fight because we give up runs,” Smith said. “I want them to continue to push and continue to put runs on the board.” The same scenario played out in the second game, where, down 9-1 and facing being run-ruled, KU struck for four straight runs — a three-run homer by Maggie Hull and a solo shot from Hile, who also homered earlier. ● Box scores on page 3B

Endless possibilites this year at Masters AUGUSTA, GA. (AP) — On the far end of the course Wednesday, near the only palm tree at Augusta National, Lee Westwood rolled long putts across the fourth green as he practiced alone on a quiet afternoon before the Masters. Through the pines and dogwoods, down a steep slope toward the 16th green, players stopped on the edge of the 16th green to the fans’

delight and tried skipping shots across the pond and onto the green. It sure didn’t feel like the day before the first major of the year. But then, Augusta National has a way of putting players at ease with its sheer beauty, when the Masters is more about azaleas and jasmine and enjoying a special place than trying to win a green jacket. That figures to change today.

COMMENTARY

Tradition makes Masters special

“The Masters has a fear factor, and that’s the best thing about this golf course,” three-time champion Nick Faldo said Wednesday. Phil Mickelson will try to join some exclusive clubs when he tees off in the opening round as the clear favorite. He can go to No. 1 in the world for the first time in his career. He can join Jack Nicklaus, Tiger Woods and Arnold Palmer as

the only players with at least four green jackets. And he can become only the fourth player to win the Masters in consecutive years. “The Masters will always start with Tiger and Phil,” said Robert Allenby. “Their record here and the way they play Augusta make them the two to beat.” The difference this year: They have some company.

AUGUSTA, GA. — The Super Bowl has evolved from a funky little football game to a national carnival featuring $1,200 seats. The Masters still charges $1.50 for a pimento cheese sandwich wrapped in a green baggie. The NBA Finals has leapt from a quaint playground scrum to a slick marketing vehicle where everything from the shoes to the scorer’s tables are sold. The Masters contains no advertising, no cell phones and absolutely no running. The World Series has morphed from sweet September afternoons to bitter November nights, from short-sleeve shirts to ski masks, from autumn to winter. The Masters hasn’t moved for 75 years. On a Wednesday before the start of this year’s renewal of America’s most curiously strong sports tradition, I cornered Stewart Cink, a 13-year Masters veteran, as he finished his practice round amid an Augusta National scene that looks as if it were dropped out of a 1950s television show. I pointed to the caddies wearing ancient white jump suits, the signs referring to fans as “patrons,” the giant hand-operated scoreboard, the three-buck beers, the delighted cheers that accompany a midday stroll by a former champion such as Jack Nicklaus. “Why does an old-fashioned tournament like the Masters still matter?” I asked. “That’s exactly why it does matter,” he said. And he was right, of course, the Masters being the only major American sporting event where the field never moves, the culture never changes and the game is never compromised. You might think that the sophisticated American sports fan would grow bored of this, but it’s quite the opposite. We embrace this. We hunger for this. The Masters remains one of America’s most beloved sporting events perhaps because it is everything we used to be, reflecting a simpler type of sporting culture that will never exist again. “The Masters is about a certain formality and rigidity that is missing in most of our lives,” said Verne Lundquist, the announcer who will be calling his 27th Masters for CBS. “People crave that sort of thing.” Nothing changes here, and in many ways that’s maddening, and if Augusta National were just some golf club, you would probably never come near the place. The club roster, numbering about 300, contains no women and did not have a black member until 1990. There were only black caddies until 1983, and the first black player didn’t tee off in the Masters until 1975. The club atmosphere feels like the worst of the Old South, and at a quick glance, it still seems that way, with most of the members being old and white while the service people are young and black. You can rail at the silliness of it all until you realize that this throwback culture produces a throwback sporting event witnessed by a diverse group of fans with a winners’ roster that is completely colorblind. “This place, this week, there is nothing like it anywhere,” Cink said. All of this is measured not in tweets or texts, but roars from fans leaping up from green Masters folding chairs that cost $29, roars that echo through a course unburdened with whirring technology or noisy glitz. The Masters still matters because of the purity of that roar, a thundering bond between fan and athlete and playing field that has long ceased to consistently exist in any other corner of American sport. Augusta National may be this country’s only sports venue that has a sundial. It’s sculpted in the shape of a tiny golfer. It sits in front of the pro shop. The little guy keeps the correct time. The little guy stands perfectly still.

Point guard Irving leaving Duke for NBA DURHAM, N.C. — Point guard Kyrie Irving is leaving Duke after one season to enter the NBA draft. Coach Mike Krzyzewski said in a statement issued Wednesday by the school that Irving plans to hire an agent, ending his college career. “Our whole program is overjoyed with having Kyrie here for one year and that he has the chance now to pursue a dream of being a high draft pick and a great player in the NBA,” Krzyzewski said. “We are totally supportive of Kyrie, his family and his decision. We look forward to continuing to work with him during the upcoming months leading to his entry into the NBA and afterwards while he is an NBA player.”

Robinson CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1B

can’t wait to run up and down the court in a packed Allen Fieldhouse next year. I plan on busting my butt this summer to improve my game. I want to take more of a leadership role in us moving forward and winning another league championship and getting to the Final Four.” The 237-pound Robinson actually plans on adding bulk. “I don’t know how much bigger I can get, but I’m going to try in the offseason to get bigger. I wouldn’t call it perfect,” he said of his frame. “LeBron (James) is my height, and he’s, like, 250. “I can add some more weight,” added Robinson, who recorded four doubledoubles, including 12 points and 14 rebounds in the Sweet 16 against Richmond. Self believes Robinson has a tremendous upside. “I think Thomas has to improve just as much as anybody, because when he plays well, he’s terrific. He can be very inconsistent. He needs to take a step like Markieff (Morris) took this year,” Self said. “His skill set is going to continue to improve. It’s amazing

to me the type of year he had considering all of the stuff he went through, just amazing. Hopefully he can play with a free mind and be able to just play as opposed to think and have so many different things going on in his head. He had a great year and will continue to get better.”

‘A great decision’ Jason Smith, who coached Robinson at Brewster Academy in Wolfeboro, N.H., is pleased Robinson will be at KU a third season. “I think it’s a great decision,” Smith said. “Thomas needs to be in position where he earns more minutes and contributes more playing time in college.” Smith thinks Robinson may have been a first-round pick this year. “No question Thomas has NBA upside. It all depends on how he fared in workouts,” Smith said of individual workouts with NBA teams. Smith said he has been contacted by various “agents and runners and NBA people who do background checks” concerning his former pupil. “More than I would care,” Smith said. “Absolutely it is crazy what is going on in our game. They may call and say, ‘Do you still have a relationship with Thomas? Is he

thinking about entering the draft?’ I direct all questions to his current coaches.” Smith said Robinson never really seemed all that interested in leaving KU after just two seasons. “I spoke briefly with him Monday. It was more that his mind was made up, but had a few questions. He wanted to hear from as many people as possible that he was making the right decision. He wants to compete for, and win, a national championship and have a chance to hopefully earn a bigger role next year. He absolutely loves Kansas,” Smith said.

Buddies to be reunited Robinson is now assured of playing on the same college team with his former Brewster teammate, Naadir Tharpe. The 6-foot Tharpe averaged 14.5 points and 6.0 assists in leading Brewster to a 31-3 record and spot in the national prep school semifinals. He also started at point for last year’s national title team. “Naadir gets a chance to play with Thomas again. Both are excited about it,” Smith said. “Thomas, like most of our alums, said he would be coming back for a visit to our school this spring (where he and Tharpe can work out).”

LHS grad Minnis caught up in murky baseball-agent issue WICHITA (AP) — Albert Minnis didn’t expect to be labeled an NCAA rulebreaker when he shared the name of his legal adviser with the Atlanta Braves and other Major League Baseball clubs. In fact, his family enlisted the adviser to stay above board. A left-handed pitcher who led Lawrence High School to a Kansas state title as a junior, Minnis was chosen by the Braves in the 33rd round of last year’s draft. He instead opted to attend Wichita State, a college baseball powerhouse. Like many top high school prospects, Minnis enlisted an unpaid adviser to gauge his pro potential. Such advisers are typically sports agents who hope their goodwill translates into paid deals once the ballplayer turns pro, whether right away or after college. But when that unidentified adviser contacted a Braves scout on Minnis’ behalf once he had enrolled, the Wichita State freshman violated an NCAA ban on college athletes getting professional representation. Minnis has served a 30game suspension since February, missing half of his first college season. “We thought we took every stride necessary to make sure we acted properly, to not endanger Albert’s eligibility,” said his father, Brian Minnis. The idea of bringing in an adviser was simply to explore Albert’s options in an organized fashion. “There wasn’t any specific talk about money. Everybody knew that Albert had a very strong commitment to Wichita State,” his father said. “He was in no rush to play professional baseball.” NCAA rules don’t prevent high school or college athletes from consulting with agents. But entering a verbal or written agreement with an agent or accepting meals, gifts, transportation or other financial incentives is considered a breach of amateurism. Unlike their counterparts in football, baseball players can skip college and be drafted right out of high school. And as Minnis’ case shows, that can complicate matters for those who continue on to college but want a sense of which decision — pro or college — makes more sense. The NCAA’s amateurism rules make no distinction among athletes in different sports — despite a 2009 court settlement in which the NCAA agreed to pay $750,000 to Andrew Oliver, a former Oklahoma State pitcher who successfully challenged the rule on advisers. The settlement meant that an Ohio judge’s determination that the NCAA rule was improper would only apply to the Oliver case. But Minnis and other college baseball players continue to get ensnared by the rule on advis-

Tharpe said Robinson is “one of my good friends. When I committed, he texted me and said, ‘Welcome to the Jayhawks.’ I have a friend at KU in Thomas. We are real close and talk a lot.” Tharpe, the New England Preparatory School Athletic Council player of the year, scored 10 points and dished seven assists against no turnovers in the recent EastWest All-America game in Houston. “He played very well,” said Smith, who coached the East team to victory.

More decisions coming KU’s Marcus and Markieff Morris and Josh Selby have yet to announce whether they will return to KU or turn pro. Players have until April 24 to enter their names in the draft. They have until May 8 to withdraw if they do not sign with an agent. According to draftexpress.com, Marcus Morris will be taken 15th, Markieff 19th and Selby 27th in Round One of this year ’s draft. Robinson is now listed as No. 13 pick in the first round of the 2012 draft. Taylor is No. 5 and Elijah Johnson No. 15 in Round Two in ’12. — Assistant sports editor Gary Bedore can be reached at 832-7186.

WICHITA STATE PITCHER — AND LAWRENCE HIGH GRAD — ALBERT MINNIS collects practice balls before WSU’s March 18 game in Wichita. Minnis has served a 30-game suspension since February, missing half of his first college season, after running afoul of an NCAA rule about agents. ers, including another freshman pitcher at Nebraska who is a top Toronto Blue Jays prospect. That’s creating a groundswell for change — and the NCAA may be listening. The NCAA’s man in charge of baseball told college coaches earlier this year that new rules acknowledging baseball’s “unique set of circumstances” could be on the way. “If I had a kid who was lefthanded and threw 95 (mph), I’d like to know what his value would be,” Dennis Poppe, managing director for baseball and football, said in a recent interview with The Associated Press. He didn’t discuss any specific changes. Agents aren’t allowed to negotiate contracts on behalf of a student-athlete even if the contract won’t be signed until after the player completes his eligibility. NCAA rules also forbid agents and advisers to market a student’s “athletics ability or reputation.” That was apparently the case at Nebraska, where firstyear pitcher Logan Ehlers was suspended for 60 percent of the Cornhuskers’ regular season because of what his coach has called a “30-second contact” between his adviser and the Blue Jays at the Cape Cod summer league. The current rules penalize players for telling the truth and encourages those who have enlisted advisers as well as the major league clubs to lie, Wichita State coach Gene Stephenson said.

“It’s a shame when you’re honest and do nothing wrong, and suffer the penalty,” he said. “In Albert’s case, he was never even offered a contract. How can that be a negotiation or a marketing of a player?” Richard Johnson, a Cleveland attorney who sued the NCAA on Oliver’s behalf, said baseball players are the unwitting victims of the NCAA’s one-size-f its-all approach to agents in college sports. “This has everything to do with preventing basketball and football players from going pro and very little to do with baseball,” he said. Missouri baseball coach Tim Jamieson said that NCAA off icials briefed college coaches about possible unspecified changes at the American Baseball Coaches Association national convention in Nashville earlier this year. “They suggested that there’s some pretty significant changes coming, and left it at that,” he said. The NCAA discussions are part of a broader review of the role of agents in college sports, spurred in part by a spate of reports in 2010 of possible improper agent contacts in college football. The association has formed a panel that includes agents and state regulators, as well as NFL team presidents and the Big Ten and Southeastern Conference commissioners to help modernize its agent rules.

SHAWNEE — Ross Johnson and Matt Sutliffe each had three hits, and Lawrence High’s baseball team stole six bases in five innings in an 110, run-rule-shortened rout of Shawnee Mission North on Wednesday at the Johnson County 3&2 Complex. Garrett Cleavinger (1-2) allowed two hits over three innings for the win. “We made the routine play,” LHS coach Brad Stoll said. “We had one throwing error trying to pick a runner off, so we’ll take that. We got a little bit better yesterday. We got a little bit better today. We have the River City Festival next week. We try to play three quality opponents and try to make strides.” Lawrence collected 17 hits overall and scored eight runs in the second inning. “We just attacked, went at it at the plate,” Stoll said. “Hanging an eight-spot in the second inning was huge. Six multi-hit guys. That’s a good day.” The Lions improved to 3-4. SM North fell to 5-4. LHS will travel Tuesday to Olathe South Lawrence SM North

Royals fall to ChiSox in 12 The Associated Press

KANSAS CITY , M O. — Joakim Soria and a three-run lead in the ninth normally equates to a Kansas City Royals’ victory. Not Wednesday. Soria, who has logged 115 saves the past three years, was not his usually reliable self in a 10-7, 12-inning loss to the Chicago White Sox. After retiring the first two batters in the ninth, Soria gave up four runs on four hits and a walk for a blown save. “He was throwing the ball well, but we just couldn’t get that final out,” Royals manager Ned Yost said. “They found holes, and they found holes there. In his defense, and he’ll never admit it, he’s worked five of six days.” Soria was 1-0 with a save and a 0.00 ERA in his first outings. “It doesn’t matter if the ball is hit hard,” Soria said. “The most important thing, they score four runs. They found a way to score four runs. There’s no excuse. I give it my 100 percent. I’m a human being.” Chicago ab r h bi Pierre dh 6 1 3 2 Bckhm 2b 5 1 0 0 Rios cf 6 1 2 1 Konerk 1b 5 0 2 1 Lillirdg pr-lf 1 1 0 0 Quentin rf 6 2 4 3 AlRmrz ss 6 1 3 0 Milledg lf 3 0 0 0 Teahn ph-lf-1b2 0 0 0 RCastr c 3 1 2 1 Przyns ph-c 1 1 0 0 Morel 3b 6 1 2 2 Totals 50 10 18 10

Imitation is flattering, but exposes insecurity Annie’s Mailbox

Marcy Sugar and Kathy Mitchell anniesmailbox@comcast.net

Dear Annie: I read the letter from “Burning Up in Vermont” and laughed out loud when you said, “And now he can take the bus.” Vermont is a very rural state. The likelihood of bus service where this person lives is remote to none. You should have suggested he carpool with someone he works with, although that might be equally difficult. — B.B.

huff. I haven’t seen her since, Dear B.B.: We admit we although she lives down the are not familiar with rural block. Should I have answered Vermont, and it’s possible her? I think I need to end the friendship, but how? — Feeling Uneasy

Viewers still buzzing about last Thursday’s “Taxidermy USA” on Discovery can rejoice. History ups the stuffing-deadthings ante with “Mounted in Alaska” (9 p.m. and 9:30 p.m., History). So, not content to allow a taxidermy gap arise between itself and the competition, History throws in an Alaskan location! Nicely done. I guess “Stuffed and Mounted on The Jersey Shore” just didn’t reach the right demog raphic. Can “The Real Housewives of Taxidermists” be far behind? ● Speaking of once-living creatures preserved by artificial means, “The Real Housewives of New York” (9 p.m., Bravo) returns for a fourth season. Women who never seem to think or read behave like they never left high school — or perhaps junior high school. This season welcomes a new character with the improbable name of Cindy Barshop, owner of a business called Completely Bare Spas. ● Viewers interested in women who actually have to work for a living might enjoy the new season opener of “Police Women of Broward County” (8 p.m., TLC) followed by its spin-off show “Unleashed: K-9 Broward County” (9 p.m.), a “Cops”inspired reality drama following police assisted by (wo)man’s best friend while in pursuit of drug dealers, violent perps and (no joke) cat burglars. ● Just when you thought “reality” couldn’t sink to sadder depths, “Gigolos” (10 p.m., Showtime) lowers the bar. The halfhour series follows the professional activities of five male escorts in Las Vegas — where else? It also interviews their “clients” who appear to have forgotten that the “what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas” guarantee tends to be voided when it happens with cameras rolling. For all of their weightlifting and odd camaraderie, the five dim himbos seem decidedly depressed about their line of work. “Gigolos” leaves little to the imagination and left this viewer convinced that Showtime was out to further blur the line between “adult” premium cable and plain old pornography.

Tonight’s other highlights ● A contestant goes home on “American Idol” (7 p.m., Fox). ● An investigation of a wildcat mauling leads to an encounter with Lady Heather on “CSI” (8 p.m., CBS). ● Todd comes in from the cold on “The Office” (8 p.m., NBC). ● Amputated feet wash ashore on “Bones” (8 p.m., Fox). ● The old Fox series “Terminator: The Sarah Connors Chronicles” (8 p.m. and 9 p.m., Syfy) begins its repeat run on cable. ● “Lisaraye: The Real McCoy” (8 p.m., TV One) returns for a second season. ● Expedition Week continues with “Into Iceland’s Volcano” (8 p.m., National Geographic) followed by “Man Vs. Volcano” (9 p.m.). ● A trip to the big city on “Parks and Recreation” (8:30 p.m., NBC). ● Online dating can be murder on “The Mentalist” (9 p.m., CBS). ● With Tracy gone, Angie asserts herself on “30 Rock” (9 p.m., NBC). ● “Randy Jackson Presents America’s Best Dance Crew” (9 p.m., MTV) returns.

JACQUELINE BIGAR’S STARS For Thursday, April 7: This year, you rethink many of your decisions of the past. You also are more aware of your greater potential. In this type of process, it is often tempting to look backward, not forward. If you are single, others find you to be flirtatious and desirable. If you are attached, the two of you renew your caring and frequently go out as a couple. Gemini understands you well. The Stars Show the Kind of Day You'll Have: 5Dynamic; 4-Positive; 3Average; 2-So-so; 1-Difficult Aries (March 21-April 19) ★★★★ One doesn't need to be up for long to note the tenor of your day. Confusion seems to reign as you symbolically play "who's on first." Tonight: Swap war stories with a friend. Taurus (April 20-May 20) ★★★ With chaos as a theme, especially when dealing with funds, you know what not to do. Tonight: A happy Bull is a frugal Bull!

“Burning” lives in an area where there is no bus service. In which case, we hope carpooling is a feasible alternative.

Dear Uneasy: No one needs to answer such personal questions. Imitation is usually a sign of insecurity in one’s own taste. It often helps to offer to shop with the person and help them develop their own style. Lucy, however, seems to be looking for more than style. She wants a life upgrade, and she’s chosen yours. We suggest you put gradual limits on the amount of contact you have. Continue to be friendly, but find a way to be busier. When you go out, alter your schedule so you have less of a chance of running into her. And if she ever asks for help, urge her to seek professional counseling.

Dear Annie: I’ve been close friends with “Lucy” since high school. In the past few years, I’ve noticed that she is imitating everything I do, and I mean everything. I recently dyed my hair red, and she did the same, even using the same stylist. She bought the same carpet, painted her house the same color as ours and last year acquired the same breed of dog. She buys her grandkids the same gifts we buy ours. I just purchased a jacket, and when Lucy saw it, she bought the same one and flipped out because she could not get it in the same color. I know imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, but this is scary. It’s as if Lucy is trying to live my life. Last week, I bought a set of new sheets. Lucy stopped by as I was making the bed and asked her usual questions — where did I buy them, how much did they cost, etc. But then she asked what my husband was like in bed. She confided that her sex life is not so good and once thought her husband was having an affair. I was flabbergasted and finally said it was personal and nobody’s business, and I refuse to discuss my sex life with anyone. Lucy became agitated, said I should be willing to answer her question since we’re good friends and then left in a big
