Inmate seeks reduced sentence in tickets case By George Diepenbrock

A former Kansas Athletics Inc. consultant convicted for his role in the Kansas University ticket scandal is asking a judge to shave a year off his 46-month federal prison sentence, according to court records. Thomas Ray Blubaugh, 48,

alleges that when a federal judge sentenced Blubaugh in April 2011, the judge relied heavily on “hearsay, assumptions and inferences” about football and basketball tickets found in a Lenexa storage shed. Blubaugh further alleges that U.S. District Judge Wesley Brown erroneously determined the tickets were evidence that Blubaugh and

his wife, Charlette Blubaugh, a former director of the department’s ticket office, had stored to conceal a crime. Thomas Blubaugh argues in his motion, filed without an attorney, that he made “numerous, concerted efforts” to ensure the tickets were given to federal investigators to ensure full compliance with his plea agreement.

During 2011, Brown, who died last January at age 104, sentenced the Blubaughs and three other former athletics department employees — Ben Kirtland, Rodney Jones and Kassie Liebsch — to federal prison after their guilty pleas in the cash-for-tickets scam. The illegal sale or misappropriation of basketball and football tickets, which

occurred from 2005 to 2010, cost KU more than $2 million. Blubaugh is asking a judge to reduce his sentence in an El Reno, Okla., prison to 33 months, which would be in line with Liebsch’s sentence. According to the U.S. Bureau of Prisons, Blubaugh is projected to be released in October 2014.

End-of-life planning eases survivor burden By Karrey Britt

Dr. Richard Sosinski has seen the devastating consequences when families do not talk about their wishes when it comes to end-of-life care. Families are torn apart. Children are making difficult decisions in time of crisis. Spouses are left wondering if they made the right decision. Sometimes, cases end up in court. If there’s not a plan of care, the process can go on for years, he said. “I think the last thing people want when they die is for their family to

be fighting over what they would have wanted, and I’ve seen that,” Sosinski said. Sosinski, of Internal Medicine G r o u p , s p o k e during a 90-minute program Monday Sosinski night at the Lawrence Public Library that was attended by about 40 people. The event was held by the Lawrence-area Coalition to Honor End-of-Life Choices and Lawrence

Memorial Hospital to mark National Healthcare Decisions Day. To start the program, they showed a segment from the documentary “Consider the Conversation.” It was the story of a doctor who had Lou Gehrig’s disease, a neurodegenerative disease. He talked frankly about the progression of the disease and how he went from losing the ability to use his fingers and legs to speech. He said while he might be ready to die, his family might not be ready to say goodbye. That’s why he had the conversation about his wishes. He didn’t want feeding tubes or venti-

lators; he wished for a peaceful death. His story brought tears to many attending the Lawrence event. It was a story that Lawrence resident Jo Bryant could relate to. She said her mother who was a nurse had talked to her about her wishes. She made it clear that she didn’t want heroic measures taken. Not only did she talk to her daughter, but she had all of the proper paperwork filled out, including that she wanted to be an orPlease see BUYOUTS, page 2A gan donor. “I never really wanted to talk with her about it,” Faculty salaries at KU are below average.

$140 VALUE! SAVE 50% Deal Ends 4/23

Kansas University is offering buyouts to 540 of its more than 4,800 faculty and staff members on its Lawrence campus. In an email to the KU community on Monday afternoon, Provost Jeff Vitter outlined the voluntary separation program, which is open to 11.25 percent of employees. Those who are approved for the program would receive a lump sum cash payment equal to one year’s base salary, up to a maximum of $100,000. “The (program) is intended to prioritize our funding towards investment in the goals and strategies identified by the KU community in Bold Aspirations, our strategic plan,” Vitter said in the email. Faculty, unclassified staff and university support staff are KANSAS eligible for the buyout, UNIVERSITY provided they meet certain criteria. Generally, employees would qualify if they were 62 years old or older at the time of their separation and had at least 10 years of service working for a Kansas Board of Regents institution or at the Kansas Board of Regents office, said Gavin Young, a spokesman for the provost’s office. Instead of being 62 years old or older, employees also could qualify if they had 85 points under the KPERS retirement plan. Employees earn one point for every year of service and one point for each year of age. Eligible employees must apply for approval. Young said the intent is to allow as many faculty and staff to participate as possible. “Each application will be granted based on whether there’s a benefit to the university,” Young said.

Margaret was born January 17, 1924, in Tonganoxie, Kansas, to Emma Cannon Harwood and William T. Harwood. She was the youngest of four children. Her older siblings were Winston B. Harwood, Willard Elden “Timber” Harwood, and Milford Alvin “Short” Harwood. She attended Lawrence schools and graduated from Liberty Memorial High School in 1941. She went to work for the Hercules Army Ammunition plant east of Lawrence. After the war, she went to work for Kansas Power and Light in the secretarial pool. It was there she learned her secretarial skills and made the acquaintance of Raymond F. Rice, legal counsel for K.P.L. In 1948 she went to work for Mr. Rice as his personal legal secretary and served him for 13 years. In 1961, she went to work for the Ethel High Title and Abstract Company. Several years later Margaret, along with Gretchen Haehl, purchased the company and renamed it Douglas County Abstract and Title Company. Margaret served as president of the company until it sold in 1995. During Margaret’s distinguished business career, she was active in several organizations. She was a member of the Lawrence Chamber of Commerce and served on its board of directors in the early 1980s. She was a member of and served on the state wide board of the Kansas Land Title Association. She was an active member of Altrusa Club and Plymouth Congregational Church. She was also, for many years, an avid bowler participating in numerous leagues. Margaret will always be remembered for her wry wit, sense of humor, and the class with which she conducted herself and her treatment of others. She was a class act in every respect. On July 17th, 1992, Margaret married her long time companion and the love of her life, Robert B. Oyler, local attorney and business man. They were married for approximately four years before his death. Margaret was preceded in death by her husband, Robert B. Oyler, her step daughter and son-in-law, Nancy Oyler Moats and Byron Moats, and her step son Robert F. Oyler. Her brothers Winston B. Harwood and Milford A. “Short” Harwood also preceded her in death. She is survived by her daughter-in-law, Caryn Oyler and seven grandchildren and seven great grand children. She is also survived by her brother, Elden “Timber” Harwood, sister-in-law, Ruth Harwood, and eleven nieces and nephews and numerous great nieces and nephews. Memorial services will be held at Plymouth Congregation Church on Monday, April 23,, 2012, at11 a.m., with Rev. Dr. Peter Luckey presiding. The family will receive friends at the Warren McElwain Mortuary Sunday, April 22, 2012 from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. Private interment will be in Oak Hill Cemetery. Memorials are suggested for Plymouth Congregational Church and may be sent in care of Warren-McElwain Mortuary. The family would like to extend our heartfelt gratitude to the staff of the Bridge Haven Memory Care home for the loving care they provided her the last three years of her life. It was such a comfort to know that she was so well taken care of and we could not have asked for a better situation for her. Thank you so much!

BRIEFLY Suspect in sex crime in custody out of state

Improvements to skate park in the works


A 41-year-old Lawrence man accused of molesting a teenager last month in Lawrence is in custody in Caldwell County in Missouri, a prosecutor said Monday. Amy McGowan, a chief assistant Douglas County district attorney, said Monday that the man was in custody there on a hold by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents. In the local case, the man was arrested on a warrant March 31 in Lawrence for one count of aggravated indecent liberties with a child, but he posted $45,000 bond on April 2 and was given notice to appear in court Monday. He’s accused of molesting the teenager between March 1 and March 27. Pro-tem Judge James George on Monday revoked the man’s bond and increased the amount to $90,000 under a new warrant. McGowan said prosecutors asked for the new warrant so he could be brought back to Douglas County to face the case here. The Journal-World generally does not identify sex crime suspects unless they are convicted.

In case you are wondering, skateboards win out over restrooms any day of the week, especially when you are dealing with a group of grade-school and middle-school kids. Leaders in the city’s Parks and Recreation Department are redrawing plans for improvements to Deerfield Park in northern Lawrence after about 30 neighborhood kids banded together to urge the city to rebuild a skating facility that recently was removed from the park because of deteriorating pavement. The city has budgeted $150,000 to make improvements at Deerfield Park and recently had a neighborhood meeting to get input on the park’s future. Please see SKATE, page 4A

Report alleges that bar violated alcohol-sales laws

Lawrence Best Buy not on closure list Lawrence’s Best Buy store will not be one of about 50 stores the electronics retailer closes as it attempts to revamp its operations. Corporate officials with Best Buy have released the complete list of store closings, and only one Kansas location is slated for closure. The Best Buy store in The Legends shopping center near the Kansas Speedway in Kansas City, Kan., is slated to close by mid-May, the company announced. One other Best Buy store in Kansas City, Mo., was closed in February. Best Buy operates a store near 31st and Iowa streets in Lawrence.

Quilt show set for this weekend For the past three decades, Lawrence quilter Sammie Messick has been honing her craft. The years of hard work have earned her the honor of being the featured quilter at this weekend’s 2012 Kaw Valley Quilt Guild’s Heart to Hands quilt show. “I suppose longevity helped,” joked Messick, who’s lost count of how many quilts she’s crafted over the years. A couple hundred, at least, she said. Messick’s love of quilting started when she ran

across a bicentennial quilt in Good Housekeeping. She thought it was neat and set to work. Two years later, she had her own bicentennial quilt. Messick will have a special section at this weekend’s event, where some of her many works through the years will be on display. “I hope (attendees) will see an evolution of my quilts from crude to experienced,” she said. Here are the details of the event at the Douglas County Fairgrounds, 2110 Harper St.:

Trent McKinley said police were called to Taste, 804 W. 24th St., about 2:30 a.m. Sunday because it appeared the bar was open past its statemandated 2 a.m. closing. Employees, who initially were not cooperative with officers, maintained the club was open but no alcohol was being served. But McKinley said police determined the bar had served alcohol after 2 a.m. That information is being sent to the state’s Alcoholic Beverage Control agency, which has authority over liquor licenses. McKinley also said police were reporting to the ABC that Taste management had failed to properly display its liquor license. But Blackmon said Taste serves chicken wings to customers after 2 a.m., and he said Monday police only saw an offduty officer the club had hired for security behind the bar moving a bottle. “He put the bottle down. He went out there and cooperated with them,” Blackmon said.

But he defended the bar and its security procedures. “All we can do is just do our best to make sure everyone is safe,” he said. “We follow all the rules.” City Attorney Toni Wheeler has said city staff members are collecting and analyzing information regarding activities at the club because the city might request a hearing before the ABC to consider revoking or suspending the bar’s license. “We are aware of a high number of incidents at this location, and we have discussed this matter with city attorneys,” Douglas County District Attorney Charles Branson said Monday. Douglas County prosecutors have said a bouncer at the club was shot in the abdomen early March 17 after trying to stop a man who tried to steal a tip jar. Dante Marcus Fields, 20,

In addition, two Leavenworth men were arrested following a shooting on Oct. 9 at the bar — just three days after the bar’s current liquor license went into effect. No one was injured. And on Dec. 9, a Lawrence man was arrested for firing a weapon from a vehicle near the establishment. But Blackmon said Monday the three events since October were isolated, and he said in all three cases suspects were arrested a short time later. He said after the March shooting, staff members followed the vehicle Fields was in and gave descriptions and a license plate number to dispatchers. Police in west Lawrence eventually stopped the vehicle Fields was a passenger in. “If we’re not cooperating, no one would have gotten charged with anything,” Blackmon said. He also said the incidents over the past few months had overshadowed Taste’s three years of operation. “We’re judged off of three nights compared to almost 1,000 days,” Blackmon said. “That’s just not fair.”

“We found out the skate park was a huge priority for a lot of kids over there,” said Ernie Shaw, the city’s interim director of Parks and Recreation. Shaw said the department had always planned on reinstalling the portable ramps and other skate features once some new concrete could be poured for the facility. But he said the city was planning on using a good portion of the budget to build a new shelter house and permanent restrooms, which currently aren’t offered in the park. But now Shaw said the department is recommending $30,000 worth of improvements to the park, which will allow for permanent ramps and other features to be installed in Deerfield. “I think it will allow for the skate park area to be much improved,” Shaw said. Parks and Recreation leaders will ask city commissioners at tonight’s meeting to approve a $30,000 contract with Maine-based Whoskates to design and build the Deerfield skate park. Officials with Whoskates currently are in Lawrence to begin previously approved improvements to the city’s main skate park at Centennial Park. Shaw said department officials are working to finalize plans for the Centennial skate park. He said the project will have a heavy emphasis on rehabilitating the concrete surface at the park, plus making some improvements to park features. The new Deerfield skate park is expected to be significantly different from

the Centennial Park facility. Shaw said the Deerfield skate park will be designed to accommodate less-experienced skaters than the Centennial facility. Josh Johnson, a longtime Lawrence skater who has been participating in city planning sessions for the Centennial skate park, said the need is definitely growing for more skate parks in the city. “I would say per capita we definitely have more skaters than the average community,” Johnson, 39, said. “It is a good time to be a skater in Lawrence. Word is getting out that some improvements are on the way.” The new plans for Deerfield Park will include more than just the skate park. The plans also include reinstalling a lighted, outdoor basketball court in the park, which also was recently removed because of deteriorating concrete. The project won’t include restrooms or a shelter

house, although Shaw said the department is leaving room for such facilities as part of the park’s long-term master plan. The master plan also calls for a multipurpose walking and biking trail that will run along the treeline of the large open space that exists in the park. “Everywhere we build trails, they really get used,” Shaw said. The $150,000 budget is expected to be enough to build the skate park, the basketball court and part of the trail system. Work is expected to begin later this summer, if approved by city commissioners. — City reporter Chad Lawhorn can be reached at 832-6362. Follow him at

The officer pursued the vehicle south on Monterey Way and eventually discontinued the pursuit. Officers later spotted the vehicle on the South Lawrence Trafficway near Clinton Parkway, and officers put out stop sticks to pierce the vehicle’s tires. The driver made it to the 2400 block of Arkansas Street before the vehicle struck a mailbox, and the driver was arrested, McKinley said. No injuries were reported.

McKinley said officers at 4:17 a.m. were called to the Meadowbrook Apartments in the 1400 block of Weston Square near Bob Billings Parkway and Crestline Drive after a resident found a man inside the apartment. The resident chased the suspect from the apartment, and McKinley said police were also called 30 minutes earlier to the 2900 block of Bob Billings Parkway to the west about a man attempting to remove a screen from a window before he was caught and ran away.

3 Chamber finalists to visit town this week By Chad Lawhorn

The Lawrence Chamber of Commerce has narrowed its search for a new leader down to three finalists, the chairwoman of the search committee confirmed Monday. Cindy Yulich, search committee chairwoman, said the finalists for the president and CEO position will be in Lawrence for full-day interviews and tours later this week. Yulich said the chamber’s board of directors may be in a position to make a decision on a new leader by the end of the month. Yulich said confidentiality considerations prevented her from providing information about the finalists, but she said she was pleased with the process. “We’re enthusiastic about the qualifications of the candidates,” she said. “We have made economic

development a priority, and there are candidates in this pool that give us a good opportunity to advance that.” A source with knowledge of the search process has told the Journal-World that all three finalists have experience in either the No. 1 or No. 2 ranking leadership positions of a chamber of commerce. According to the source, who wished to remain anonymous, the chamber board is looking at three people:

A longtime CEO in a neighboring state, in a city roughly the size of Lawrence but with a fairly rich industrial heritage. His chamber organization has received a five-star accreditation from the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, and he’s been an active leader of the community’s economic development efforts. The Lawrence chamber has no starred accreditation.

A former senior vice president of a Missouri chamber of commerce in a city quite a bit larger than Lawrence. But in an interesting twist, the candidate has been employed for about the last two years by the University of Missouri in a position that is now falling victim to budget cuts. For 15 years before that, he was a well-regarded senior vice president of economic development for his Missouri community, which has a broad industrial and commercial economy.

The third candidate has been in the chamber industry for less than five years. He’s currently the president of a chamber of commerce in a neighboring state in a community that is about a quarter the size of Lawrence. Additionally, the chamber in that community is not responsible for leading the area’s economic devel-

Before getting into the chamber industry, the candidate owned and operated a small business for more than a decade. In addition, three Lawrence residents with various experience either in business, chamber or government-related positions were interviewed but are not included among the three finalists.

Top officer: Military embarrassed by allegations of misconduct ————

Colombia scandal also involved Secret Service agents By Robert Burns Associated Press

WASHINGTON — The top U.S. military officer said Monday the nation’s military leadership is embarrassed by allegations of misconduct against at least 10 U.S. military members at a Colombia hotel on the eve of President Barack Obama’s visit over the weekend. “We let the boss down,” Army Gen. Martin Dempsey, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, told a Pentagon news conference. He said he regretted that the scandal, which also involved 11 Secret Service agents accused of cavorting with prostitutes at the hotel, diverted attention from Obama’s diplomacy at a Latin America summit. “I can speak for myself and my fellow chiefs: We’re embarrassed by what occurred in Colombia, though we’re not sure exactly what it is,” Dempsey added. Pentagon officials said earlier Monday that the number of military members involved in the scandal appears to be greater than the five originally cited. One senior defense official said that at least 10 military

I can speak for myself and my fellow chiefs: We’re embarrassed by what occurred in Colombia, though we’re not sure exactly what it is.” — Army Gen. Martin Dempsey, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff members may have been involved. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because the matter is under investigation. Pentagon press secretary George Little said that military members who are being investigated were assigned to support the Secret Service in preparation for Obama’s official visit to Cartagena. He said they were not directly involved in presidential security. The Secret Service sent 11 of its agents home from Colombia amid allegations that they had hired prostitutes at a Cartagena hotel. The military members being investigated were staying at the same hotel, Little said. Appearing with Dempsey at the Pentagon,

Defense Secretary Leon Panetta said U.S. troops are expected to abide by “the highest standards” of behavior whether they are at home or abroad. He noted that a military investigation is under way and promised that if wrongdoing is confirmed, “these individuals will be held accountable.” Army Col. Scott Malcom, chief spokesman for U.S. Southern Command, which organized the military team that was assigned to support the Secret Service’s mission in Cartagena, declined to say how many additional service members are under investigation. He also would not say which branch of the military they were from. A defense official in Washington said at least some of those under investigation are members of the Army. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because the matter is under active investigation. Malcom said a colonel from the Southern Command staff, whom he would not identify by name, had been sent to Cartagena to gather facts. He said at least five military members under investigation were being flown to Miami on Monday.

GOP derails Senate ‘Buffett rule’ bill WASHINGTON — Senate Republicans derailed a Democratic “Buffett rule” bill Monday forcing the nation’s top earners to pay at least 30 percent of their income in taxes, using the day before Americans’ taxes are due to defy President Barack Obama on one of his signature electionyear issues. By a near party-line 5145 tally, senators voted to keep the bill alive but fell nine votes short of the 60 needed to continue debating the measure. The anticlimactic outcome was no surprise to anyone in a vote that designed more to win over voters and embarrass senators in close races than to push legislation into law.

BUSINESS AT A GLANCE U.S. economic outlook brightens as retail sales rise in March WASHINGTON (AP)— Americans bought more electronics, started home improvement projects and updated their wardrobes last month, inspired by warmer weather and a healthier job market. Retail sales rose 0.8 percent in March, the Commerce Department said Monday. The gain capped a strong quarter for retail spending, which is contributing to a brighter outlook among economists for growth in the January-March quarter. Businesses are responding to the higher sales by restocking their shelves at

a steady pace, a sign that they expect the trend to carry over into the spring. More retail spending also helped offset a decline in confidence among homebuilders. And it could ease concerns about March hiring, which slowed to half the pace of the previous three months. “Retail sales soared in March with stores in just about every category recording sharp increases over February levels,” said Joel Naroff, chief economist at Naroff Economic Advisors. “And let’s not forget, the February spending was strong.” The retail sales report is


the government’s first look at consumer spending each month. Americans are spending more despite paying higher gas prices and seeing little growth in their wages. Shoppers bought more furniture, groceries, clothes and sporting goods last month. They also paid more for gas. Still, excluding cars, gas and food, sales rose 8.2 percent in the first quarter, the most in two years. The gain pushed total retail sales to a record high of $411.1 billion, 24 percent higher than the recession low hit in March 2009.

Trade barriers worry Latin leaders


Rail route Kansas officials need to start thinking now about how to provide the funding needed to preserve passenger rail service across the state.


t a time when travelers across the nation should be looking at options to private automobiles, Kansas is in danger of losing a big chunk of its last remaining passenger rail service. A meeting in Garden City last week brought Amtrak officials together with local government officials from Kansas, Colorado and New Mexico to talk about the future of the Southwest Chief, which currently runs through Lawrence and across western Kansas. The meeting amounted to an early warning that if money isn’t found to maintain the track currently used by the Southwest Chief west of Newton, Amtrak may be forced to change its route, turning south near Newton and bypassing all of western Kansas, including stops in Hutchinson, Dodge City and Garden City. The problem is that Amtrak operates on tracks owned and maintained by the Burlington Northern-Santa Fe Railway. The BNSF already has shifted most of its freight traffic to the southern route and maintains the Kansas tracks used by Amtrak only enough to allow freight trains to travel 30 to 40 mph. The poor condition of the 60-year-old tracks means that Amtrak also has to slow its trains way down to safely travel between Hutchinson and Garden City. The BNSF’s contract to maintain the tracks runs through 2016. After that, Amtrak likely will be required to pick up that responsibility. Even though that deadline is nearly four years away, an Amtrak representative told those who attended the Garden City meeting that they should start thinking now about how future maintenance might be funded. He estimated it will cost about $100 million to upgrade the Kansas tracks and another $10 million per year to maintain the tracks to accommodate Amtrak trains at desired speed. Without some funding from state or local governments, Amtrak may be forced to move its route south onto BNSF-maintained tracks. That would be too bad for Kansas. It not only would eliminate the state’s last remaining passenger rail line west of Wichita, but could endanger hopes of creating a Kansas link to Amtrak’s Heartland Flyer which runs south through Oklahoma City to Dallas. Even if the Southwest Chief maintains its route through eastern Kansas cities, it raises doubts that could affect projects such as the city’s proposed takeover of the historic Santa Fe Depot in east Lawrence. Another Amtrak official told the Garden City meeting that Amtrak ridership has increased in nine out of the last 10 years. It would be nice if revenues grew enough that Amtrak could afford to make its own investment to maintain the Kansas tracks, but that seems unlikely. It won’t be easy for Kansas to pick up the maintenance tab, but, as Amtrak officials advised, state officials need to start now looking at funding that will preserve passenger rail service across Kansas.

CARTAGENA, COLOMBIA— The big headlines at the summit of President Barack Obama and 30 other hemispheric leaders that ended here Sunday focused on the U.S.- Latin American spats over Cuba and the Falkland/ Malvinas Islands, but the talk behind the scenes among the presidents dealt with something that worries them much more: the return of protectionism. Granted, most of the presidents and prime ministers spent much of their time during their public appearances talking about Latin America’s demands that Cuba be invited to future U.S.-Latin American summits, and that a planned summit final declaration include a paragraph backing Argentina’s territorial claims on the Falkland/Malvinas Islands. Failure to reach a consensus on both issues led to the collapse of the hard-negotiated 16-paragraph summit final declaration. It was replaced by a presidential statement by the summit’s host, Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos, in which he summed up his view on the summit’s conclusions. But behind closed doors, most presidents talked about the rising trade barriers that several Latin American countries, especially Brazil and Argentina, are erecting to protect their industries, senior U.S. and Latin American officials say.

Trade is real concern New measures by these and other countries to restrict imports are causing growing concern in the hemisphere. In the private talks among the leaders, “there is much more conversation about the economy and trade than on the big headline issues, such as Cuba and the Falkland/Malvinas,” Roberta Jacobson, the top U.S. State Department official in charge of Latin American affairs, told me in an interview. Mexican President Felipe Calderon took the unusual

Latin America’s way to face the world’s economic recession “should clearly not be protectionism,” Calderon said. “There are protectionist measures in the U.S. Congress, but there is also protectionism in many, I would say, in all of our countries.” Mexico is increasingly angered by Brazilian measures to reduce imports of cars from Mexico, which had grown spectacularly since a 2002 agreement that allowed free trade in cars between the two countries. Brazil’s superstrong currency had made it much cheaper for companies to import foreign-made cars. But similar spats are taking place across the region. Argentina recently stopped granting automatic import licenses, and started to demand that its importers match their orders with exports, which has hurt countries across the region, includ-

The rain-swollen Kansas River, with its high water levels and treachYEARS erous currents, on AGO this day claimed IN 1987 the life of a Lawrence man whose boat had gone over the Bowersock Dam. Elmer Wolford and his fishing companion Ricky Franks had borrowed the aluminum boat from a friend to float down the Delaware to the Kaw. After going over the dam, Franks had later come to the surface and had floated downstream for about a quarter-mile before being able to pull himself out of the water. Wolford was considered missing for many days as rescue teams attempted to discover his fate.


Today was the first official application day for the Edgewood lowerYEARS income housing AGO project at 17th and IN 1972 Haskell. Lawrence Housing Authority Director Hugh Dunkum said that he had given application forms to about two dozen people by noon today. Construction on the project was about 85 percent completed, with occupancy expected in July. Meanwhile, the Kansas University chapter of Phi Delta Theta had spent a recent Saturday creating a play structure for future young Edgewood residents.

A money thing

wrecked two college basketball programs because of recruiting violations. Now he has found a way to operate within the letter of the rules and win at the expense of his athletes. Calipari is not alone in adopting this approach to recruit so-called four- or five-star athletes. He has just taken it to a new level. In the beginning, student athletes were students first, then athletes. In recent years the reverse has been too often true. Today in many cases we just have athletes. It’s the money thing. Patrick Pritchard, Lawrence

To the editor: John Calipari has set the trend for college sports. His approach to recruitment has irrevocably taken the word student out of the phrase student athlete. His pitch promises a year of glory and a quick transition and opportunity to play for pay in the NBA. It has nothing to do with the athlete’s ability to achieve a college education. I’m sure that John will tell you that the athlete still has the opportunity to remain at the college level and finish his education, but, realistically, how many 18- or 19-year-old kids are going to forgo potential multimillion-dollar conTo the editor: tracts and stay in school?

KU basketball lands one, loses one Blue-chipper White signs with Jayhawks

Tom Keegan

Kansas hoops FAQ Back to reality and a look ahead to the 2012-2013 Kansas University basketball season with answers to frequently asked questions. Does KU have a chance at recruiting any uncommitted McDonald’s All-Americans? Yes, Tony Parker, a 6-foot-9, 250-pound center from Lithonia, Ga., has Kansas on his list of five finalists, along with favorite UCLA, Georgia, Duke and Ohio State. Are there any other top100 recruits still unsigned that Kansas can land? Yes. Anrio Adams, a 6-3, 183-pound combination guard from Rainier Beach High in Seattle, ranked No. 98 by Rivals, has orally committed to KU, but hasn’t signed yet because he hasn’t yet passed his ACT. Rainier Beach, why does that ring a vague bell? Former Kansas players C.J. Giles and Rodrick Stewart, the guy who blew out his knee dunking at the NCAA Tournament public practice during his senior year, played at Rainier Beach. If Kansas lands both Parker and Adams and nobody else transfers, wouldn’t that leave Kansas one over the limit of 13 scholarships? Yes, but there is always the possibility that Justin Wesley, who came to Kansas as a walk-on and then was awarded a scholarship, could return to walk-on status. If neither Parker nor Adams joins KU for next season and nobody else signs, who would the 12 scholarship players be, what positions would they play, and can you rank them in order of possible playing time? Point guards: Senior Elijah Johnson and sophomore Naadir Tharpe. Wings: Senior Travis Releford, red-shirt freshman Ben McLemore and freshman Andrew White (ranked No. 51). Posts: Senior Jeff Withey, red-shirt freshman Jamari Traylor, freshman Perry Ellis (No. 24), senior Kevin Young, freshman Zach Peters (No. 137), freshman Landen Lucas (not in top 150), junior Justin Wesley. Can you name a possible starting five? Johnson, McLemore, Releford, Traylor or Ellis and Withey. Who would have a shot at becoming an darkhorse starter? Adams, if he qualifies academically. Where will Kansas be picked to finish in the Big 12? First, ahead of Baylor, which has a lot of talent returning, and Texas, which has yet another touted recruiting class coming in. Where will the Jayhawks be ranked in the preseason national polls? In the top five. Look for big, big things from Johnson, a natural point guard who has a steadying hand, plays with a great deal of confidence and will thrive in the role of team leader. Once he fixed his outside shot, there wasn’t anything Johnson didn’t do well. He has firstteam all-conference written all over him and has a shot at All-American honors. Withey also could make a big step forward by extending his scoring range to 15 feet.

By Gary Bedore

Blue-chip basketball prospect Andrew White, who orally committed to Kansas University on Dec. 2, learned a lot about his new school before finally signing a letter-of-intent with the Jayhawks on Monday. “I’ve seen all of the games Kansas played this year except for one. After watching those, I started to look up a lot of tape on Brandon Rush,” said White, a 6-foot6, 210-pound guard/forward from Miller School in Char-

Freshman F Lindsay transferring

lottesville, Va., who has been compared to Rush, a 6-6 wing with the NBA’s Golden State Warriors. “I found some of Bill Self’s sets at Kansas when he was there early (in his nine-year White tenure) — a lot of YouTube,” White added in a phone conversation. “I sat down with either my dad or coach to watch a good majority of the games.” White,’s No. 51-rated player, is determined to arrive at KU ready for action. Please see WHITE, page 3B Lindsay

By Gary Bedore

Merv Lindsay said he’ll forever have fond memories of his one year at Kansas University. “I’ll never forget going to the Final Four and winning the conference championship,” Lindsay said Monday in announcing his plans to transfer to a yet-to-be-determined school at semester’s end. “I was fortunate to learn under a great coach in coach (Bill) Self and his staff,” the

6-foot-7, 195-pounder from Moreno Valley, Calif., added in a phone conversation with the Journal-World. “Being a part of the great tradition here and seeing what Kansas basketball is all about is something I will always be thankful for. I love my coaches. I love all the Kansas fans. “I don’t want anybody to forget about the team or me this year. It isn’t about me. It’s about Kansas. That’s what I’m all about.” Please see LINDSAY, page 3B

KANSAS QUARTERBACK DAYNE CRIST GETS DOWN WITH THE OFFENSIVE LINE behind the sled as the unit runs through drills during practice in this photo from April 10.

QB Crist living up to lofty expectations By Matt Tait

When word got out this winter about former Notre Dame quarterback Dayne Crist coming to join Charlie Weis at Kansas University, thoughts immediately turned to Crist’s vast knowledge of Weis’ offense and the advantage that would give the current KU roster. So far, so true. While that understanding has helped KU install its offense at a breakneck pace this spring, Crist’s grasp of the playbook also has inspired competition. It seems that many of Crist’s new teammates have taken it as a challenge to see just how well the

6-foot-4, former five-star QB knows his stuff. Last week, when a few members of KU’s offense were asked if they had been able to stump Crist with questions about the offense, the resounding answer was no. “Not at all,” sophomore running back Tony Pierson said. “Anything I ask Dayne, he just knows it off the top of his head.” Added senior wide receiver Kale Pick: “No, I haven’t. And I’m still trying to. I’m always picking his brain, and he’s always quick to respond. He’s a sharp kid.” So there you have it. In just about every way possible, Crist already has been as good as advertised.

Of course, there are many people — including Crist, himself — who won’t deem his time here worth much until it makes a difference on the field during the season. But with games still more than four months away, this is all KU can get from Crist right now. And coaches who have known him for years and players who have known him for weeks concur that Crist is making a difference. “He’s not doing anything that I wouldn’t have expected,” Weis said. “I’ve known him since he was in 11th grade. What he has done is exactly what I would have expected.” What all that entails is not found on a short list. In fact, much of it cannot be put on a

list at all. From bonding with teammates and fitting in to being an obvious leader and KU’s first potential standout since Todd Reesing at the game’s most important position, Crist’s mere presence has brought back hope to KU football. “It isn’t (just) the offense,” Weis said. “It’s really the whole team. If you’re a defensive player and you see that guy on the other side picking you apart, you’re saying, ‘We’ve got a chance.’ When you’re the offense and you come into the huddle, he has a presence.” Added Pick: “I’m glad he’s here. He’s someone that we Please see CRIST, page 3B

Champagne’s small-ball pays for LHS By Benton Smith

Five-and-a-half innings of scoreless baseball inspired Lawrence High senior Trevor Champagne to try something different. A double, three old-fashioned base knocks, a bloop single, a pair of infield hits — nothing had worked for the Lions on Monday at home versus Shawnee Mission West starter Nick Thayer. So Champagne did what he does best to lead off the bottom of the sixth, laying down a perfect bunt that got him on base and served as the prelude to Shane Willoughby’s RBI single in a 1-0 LHS victory.

The strategy, Lawrence coach Brad Stoll admitted, did not come from him or any other coach in the home dugout. “I had nothing to do with that,” Stoll said with a grin. “That was completely Trevor Champagne, and that’s the kind of kid he is.” Considering no one had crossed home plate all game, Champagne thought he might as well give bunting a shot, especially after grounding out and flying out in his first two at-bats. “I hadn’t been swinging it well all night, and that (bunting) has always been one of my special skills,” the senior second baseman said, “so I try to utilize it as much as I can.”

Off his bat, the ball rolled meticulously down the thirdbase line. Stoll had a good look at the bunt once it came to a resting point. “I think the seams were the only thing touching the line,” the coach said. LHS (7-3) already had left eight runners on base through five innings, so Stoll didn’t mind using another bunt to get Champagne in scoring position. Lions senior Garrett Cleavinger, who had just entered the game in Richard Gwin/Journal-World Photo the sixth as a defensive replacement, sacrificed Cham- LAWRENCE HIGH’S SHANE WILLOUGHBY pagne to second with a solid SNATCHES A GROUNDER for a force out at first.

Chiefs focus on roster in offseason KANSAS CITY, MO. (AP) — After a season of turmoil, one marred by injuries to some of their best players and the firing of the head coach, the Kansas City Chiefs are ready for a reset. The Chiefs began their offseason program Monday, while simultaneously preparing for next week’s draft, which will give general manager Scott Pioli and coach Romeo Crennel an opportunity to fill a couple more holes that have developed since last season’s 7-9 mark. “We need depth at a number of places,� Pioli said during a break in meetings. “We learned last year, unfortunately, your depth and your front-line players can change in a hurry.� The first significant loss was tight end Tony Moeaki, who didn’t even make it through the preseason before going down with a torn ACL in his left knee. Pro Bowl safety Eric Berry followed him to injured reserve with the same injury in the season opener, and All-Pro running back Jamaal Charles gave Kansas City a potent 1-2-3 punch in the rehab room when he tore the same ligament in the same knee in Week 2.


We learned last year, unfortunately, your depth and your front-line players can change in a hurry.� — Kansas City Chiefs general manager Scott Pioli Add to that the loss of quarterback Matt Cassel to an injured throwing hand midway through the season, and it was little wonder that things spiraled out of control. Todd Haley was fired in December and Crennel was elevated to interim coach, the interim tag lifted after he somehow got the Chiefs into playoff contention. They weren’t eliminated until their second-to-last game, when they lost in overtime to Oakland. The spirited finish to the season, which included a win at playoff-bound Denver, gave folks in Kansas City at least some reason to believe that brighter days are still ahead. “You want to try to make your team better, and that’s our job, to try to make our team bet-

ter by bringing in good players,� Crennel said Monday afternoon. “When you win, everybody feels better about it, and this is a competitive business. They like competition.� The Chiefs have certainly brought in their share of players through free agency, fostering that competition, but their biggest additions may simply be getting everybody healthy. Moeaki, Berry and Charles spent most of last season working out together, since they were only a week or two apart in their rehab programs. All of them are expected to participate in some form of offseason workouts — Charles has tweeted that he’s ready to go — and could be largely up to speed by the time the Chiefs begin organized team activities next month. They’ll be joined by a bunch of new additions to the offense. The biggest splash in free agency was the signing of offensive tackle Eric Winston, who will be counted on to stabilize a line that struggled to control the pass rush. Pioli also signed former Browns running back Peyton Hillis to pro-

Manning adjusting to life in Denver ENGLEWOOD, COLO. (AP) — Peyton Manning is back in his element, barking out calls, throwing passes and working out with his new teammates. It sure beats watching, wondering and worrying. He’s still finding his comfort zone in Denver after spending 14 seasons in Indianapolis, but Manning Manning is back serving as both quarterback and coach on the football field instead of pacing the sideline and wondering when his neck is going to allow him to return to the huddle. Manning and his new teammates reported to the Broncos’ headquarters Monday morning for the start of the team’s offseason conditioning program. After some work in the classroom and weight room, Manning threw passes to his new receivers during some on-field work without the coaches, who aren’t allowed to join them outdoors until OTAs start up in May. “Everybody’s been looking forward to this day for some time now,� Manning said. “I thought it was a productive first day, but we’ve got a lot of work to do.� He didn’t want to make any rash judgments about his receiving corps and although he said he was pleased with his first official workout since signing a five-year, $96 million deal with Denver on March 20, Manning declined to talk about his health or the progress he’s made as he regains his arm strength following a series of neck operations that sidelined him for all of last season and led to his departure from Indy. Wide receiver Eric Decker, who has caught more passes from Manning than anyone else over the last month thanks to a series of workouts at local high schools, said the four-time MVP’s passes were precise and powerful. Although he’s been putting in a lot of miles finding remote high school fields to practice on, Manning said he hasn’t really gotten to know his new city yet. “It’s been all business,� he said. “Everybody’s asking where I’m living. I’ve been living over here in the facility.� Rehabbing, lifting weights and studying his new playbook. Manning said he was glad to throw the ball around at team headquarters rather than sneaking around to the local high school fields to play catch with Decker and good friend Brandon Stokley, who signed a one-year deal to return to the Broncos on Monday.

vide some depth behind Charles — he’s expected to be an upgrade over the aging Thomas Jones and journeyman Jackie Battle, who split most of the carries last season when the Chiefs’ sparkplug was lost to injury. Kevin Boss was also signed to provide some insurance behind Moeaki, who has a history of injury problems. He’s also considered an upgrade over the departed Leonard Pope. “We’ll find out in the fall how good of a job we’ve done,� Pioli said. “Teams that have great offseasons — great offseason grades — that doesn’t always translate into good seasons.� There are still holes on the Chiefs roster, particularly in the defensive backfield and along the defensive line, and those are two areas Pioli expects to address in the draft. He also wouldn’t rule out trading up or down from the No. 11 pick, and broached the possibility of choosing a quarterback early — Texas A&M’s Ryan Tannehill has been linked to Kansas City, though it is widely expected that he will be taken in the first 10 picks.

Kenyan compatriots win Boston Marathon BOSTON — Trailing the leaders by 200 yards when the Boston Marathon slogged through Heartbreak Hill, Wesley Korir passed them one by one until he took the lead on his way out of Kenmore Square. That’s when leg cramps forced him to slow down and relinquish the lead. “It’s hot out there, in case you didn’t know,� he told reporters after enduring temperatures in the mid-80s to win the 116th Boston Marathon on Monday. “I knew it was going to be hot, and one important thing that I had to take care of today ... was really hydrate as much as possible. I guess my biology degree kicked in a little bit.� Singing religious songs as he trudged along the scorching pavement, the native Kenyan — a permanent resident of the United States — retook the lead from Levy Matebo in the final mile to cross the finish line in 84.8-degree temperatures with a time of 2 hours, 12 minutes, 40 seconds. Sharon Cherop won the women’s race to complete the Kenyan sweep, outkicking Jemima Jelagat Sumgong to win by 2 seconds in 2:31:50. The women’s winner was decided by a sprint down Boylston Street for the fifth consecutive race — all of them decided by 3 seconds or less. The heat slowed the leaders and led to warnings that may have convinced as many as 4,300 no-shows to sit this one out.


Wildcats to announce draft plans LEXINGTON, KY. — Five Kentucky underclassmen, including projected No. 1 NBADraft pick Anthony Davis, are expected to announce their draft intentions at a joint news conference. A news release says freshmen Davis, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist and Marquis Teague, along with sophomores Terrence Jones and Doron Lamb will appear together today for the announcement in Lexington. Wildcats coach John Calipari is also scheduled to attend. The five underclassmen made up Kentucky’s starting lineup in the 2011-2012 season and helped Kentucky win its eighth national championship.

In announcing White’s signing Monday, the sixth day of the monthlong spring signing period, Self said he expected White to be “an impact player for us beginning from day one upon his arrival on campus.” “He’s a tall guard. He can shoot it. He’s a good athlete. He’s tough, loves to play and certainly will be a great representative of our university,” Self said. White, who averaged 22.9 points and 10 rebounds a game for (20-10) Miller School this past

I like that.” Crist credits his teammates’ open arms for his ability to feel like a Jayhawk and said he did not have to try especially hard to deliver on the things many hoped he would bring to KU’s program. “It was such a unique situation that, really, all you can do is be yourself, and that’s what I’ve tried to do,” Crist said. “I didn’t try to fit certain needs or expectations that guys may have had of me. Like coach Weis, I wanted guys to know that I’m just an honest individual, and I’m going to try to be the same guy every day. I understood the dynamic, and I understood that I really needed to assert myself, especially with the offense. But at the end of the day, I really just wanted to be one of the guys.” What he said next, when asked how he handled stepping into a situation where he was to become the face of a program that had seen so many tough times in the past 24 months, offered a glimpse

Coach told me that was his need and expectation,” White said of the “impact player” tag. “It’s not a big surprise, just something I need to keep working toward every day to get there and meet his standards.” White signed his letter before family and friends at an afternoon reception at his high school. He said he has been working on individual drills since the end of the season. “Recently I’ve been jumping rope and working on leg strength and my vertical and ballhandling,”

said White, who attended both of KU’s games at the Final Four in New Orleans. “In general, my footwork and my pull-up jumper. It’s something I need to work on every day. I will be playing a lot of 2-guard. It will help me help the team and the point guard. That’s a main focus.” White said he planned to attend first session of summer school and report to campus in early June. He’s been thinking about requesting either jersey No. 4 or 25. “I’m glad we can finally talk about Andrew,” Self said. “He’s been committed for a long time, and we are so excited to have him. He’s has been very well drilled and well coached at Miller under (coach)

Scott Willard. The transition to the collegiate level should be very smooth for him. “Andrew’s entire family has been great and so supportive to us throughout this process and what a great job Joe Dooley did in recruiting him,” Self added. “One of the reasons we like him so much is the quality of person that he is. I believe having the Whites as part of our KU family will do nothing but enhance our program.” White hopes to be part of a lot of victories and Final Four berths. “It was a good experience from the outside looking in,” he said of his trip to New Orleans with his dad. “It’s a place I

He averaged just 2.2 minutes a game in 12 games this past season, scoring 11 points. “That was my goal when I first came here, and it’s my goal now, to be an impact player,” said Lindsay, who said he had not yet come up with a list of possible schools. “I’ll see if I can accomplish that goal.” He said he had not spo-

ken with Danny Manning or Barry Hinson — former KU staff members now head coaches at Tulsa and Southern Illinois respectively. Of Lindsay, KU coach Self said: “Merv and I met last week about his situation and the opportunities he has here. He has decided it is in his best interest to look elsewhere to have an opportunity for more playing time.

“Merv is not a good young man, he is a terrific young man,” Self added. “He has done well in school and he has impacted our program on the practice court and in the locker room in a very positive way. We’re going to do everything we can to support and assist him. He’s leaving here with a great taste in his mouth as

Missouri prep LB commits to Kansas By Matt Tait

A few days ago, Kansas University’s football program addressed the present by adding fifthyear senior linebacker Anthony McDonald from Notre Dame. Monday, the Jayhawks again began to look to the future when Kellen Ash, a 6-foot-3, 194-pound linebacker from Parkway South High in Ballwin, Mo., outside of St. Louis, orally committed to Kansas. As a junior, Ash finished with 87 tackles, including 20 for loss, and was named all-conference, all-metro and all-state. KU linebackers coach DeMontie Cross played a big role in landing Ash, who also drew interest from Ball State, Cincinnati, Illinois, Kansas State and Missouri. Head coach Charlie Weis and into why it has been so easy for teammates to follow him and why Weis so badly wanted him to be his first quarterback at KU. “I was pretty aware of what I was walking into when I made my decision to come here,” Crist said. “And that’s kind of what

defensive coordinator Dave Campo helped seal the deal a couple of weeks ago when Ash and his family made an unofficial visit. Ash told Jon Kirby of JayhawkSlant. com that the early attention he received from KU made the Jayhawks the favorite from the beginning. “They were the first to offer so I paid a lot of attention to them,” Ash told Kirby. “I like how they take care of their players. I feel like they can help me improve. I feel like all my hard work has paid off. I’m not going to slow down now. I have to keep getting better for the next level.” Ash becomes the third member of the Class of 2013 to commit to KU, joining BasehorLinwood tight end Ben Johnson and Bishop Miege quarterback Montell Cozart. you’re faced with as the quarterback of a football team. I’ve experienced similar things at Notre Dame. But at the same time I’m just so happy to be at Kansas and to have the support of the fans. That’s huge, because I really do care about this

place and the university and the fans. Just the excitement that’s there, that’s important to me. It’s flattering. But it’s there until you’re not successful, so I just want to be as successful as possible.” He continued: “People talk about pressure all the time. Pressure doesn’t have to be a negative thing, now. Pressure’s a huge positive, and that’s really the way I view it. I think I play my best when the pressure’s at its highest. You’ve gotta enjoy it. Otherwise it’ll drive you crazy and you’ll fall apart.” That last part is the other element of Crist’s experience thus far that has made him glad he came to KU. On top of fielding endless questions from teammates about the offense, doing whatever he can to fit in and carrying the weight of being the face of the franchise, Crist has found plenty of time to relish his reunion with Weis. “Absolutely,” Crist said. “I’m in his office all the time. I’m probably bugging him. It’s refreshing being back with coach. I think he and I have a very good dynamic. I enjoy working with him. I enjoy taking in anything I can from him because I know how much knowledge he has. I’ll never be able to take it all in at once, but, every day, if I can get something from him, I’m getting that much better.”

bunt of his own. After Thayer coaxed Lawrence’s Kieran Severa to pop up, the Lions were down to their final out of the sixth when Willoughby, who had doubled and turned an infield chopper into a single in his first three plate appearances, entered the batter’s box. Vikings coach Todd Reed went out to the mound for a conversation with his starter before Willoughby smacked the first pitch he saw to center field. With the speedy Champagne running on contact, Willoughby knew he had

done the right thing by taking an aggressive cut on a letter-high pitch. “They (Vikings outfielders) were playing so deep — they were taking all the doubles away — that I knew it was gonna drop,” Willoughby said, “and I knew he would score.” That one run proved enough for a victory against SMW (5-3) because of Lawrence’s pitching. Senior lefty Cameron Solko gave up just three hits and a walk in five innings that included three strikeouts. Stoll said Solko would’ve thrown longer if LHS didn’t have a big weekend coming up with games Thursday, Friday and Saturday as part of the 2012 River City Baseball Festival.

“He needed to throw a lot of strikes,” Stoll said of Solko, “so he could extend his outing, and he did just that.” Willoughby, who had only thrown a couple innings this season, relieved Solko and pitched in his first big spot of the year. The right-hander allowed a hit against the first batter he faced before retiring the next six. Just one of those was a strikeout. “I know I have a great defense behind me,” Willoughby said, “and all I want to do is pitch to contact, let them hit it.” Shawnee Mission West 000 000 0 — 0 4 0 Lawrence 000 001 0 — 1 9 0 W — Shane Willoughby, 1-0.

(AP) — Jim Leyland had already decided after the eighth inning Monday night that he was sticking with Justin Verlander in the ninth, no matter what happened against the Kansas City Royals. So when the crusty Detroit manager ambled out to the mound, with two on and two out in a 3-2 game, his message for his ace was simple: “You’re going to get me fired.” “Seriously,” Verlander said afterward. “That’s what he told me.” Leyland’s heart must have really been racing when he headed back to the dugout and watched Verlander plunk Alcides Escobar to load the bases. And the relaxation must have been just as quick to

come when the reigning Cy Young winner struck out Alex Gordon to preserve the victory. “He came in after the eighth and said, ‘I feel great,’” Leyland said. “I said, ‘Well, it’s your game. You’re either going to win it or lose it. I’m not taking you out.’” So what was Verlander’s response when Leyland had to visit the mound? “Sorry,” Verlander said. “That’s just the way he is,” added Verlander, who used 131 pitches to improve to 14-2 in his career against the Royals. “He’s relaxed in a situation where a lot of guys might be panicking. And he might be panicking on the inside, but he doesn’t show it.”

in a pitcher’s duel against Danny Duffy. The young left-hander kept the Tigers’ potent attack at bay most of the game, allowing three runs on seven hits and a walk in a 61⁄3 innings. Duffy (1-1) also struck out seven. Detroit nearly added to Jackson’s homer when Brennan Boesch singled and Miguel Cabrera worked a walk in the first inning. Prince Fielder grounded into a double play, though, and Delmon Young flied out to end the threat and keep Kansas City within striking distance. Gordon eventually matched the run when he doubled in the bottom half of the inning, moved to third on a sacrifice bunt and scored on Billy Butler’s base hit.

That was just about all the Royals could muster until the ninth inning, when Butler led off with a single. Pinch runner Jason Bourgeois eventually scored, setting up the dramatic ending. Verlander changed speeds and took advantage of the corners to flummox the young Kansas City lineup most of the night. He retired 11 straight at one point and struck out nine overall. Of course, his dominance was nothing new to folks in Kansas City. The right-hander has made a mockery of the Royals in recent years, especially at Kauffman Stadium, where he improved to 9-2 and has allowed only 18 earned runs in 881⁄3 innings.

Heat 101, Nets 98 NEWARK, N.J. — LeBron James scored Miami’s final 17 points in a furious one-man rally, finishing with 37 as the Heat pulled out a victory over the New Jersey Nets on Monday night. In a game the Heat never led until the final 51 seconds, James willed them to their 10th straight victory over the Nets. With Dwyane Wade resting, James scored those 17 points over the last 4:48. Chris Bosh had 22 points and 15 rebounds for the Heat, carrying them early in the fourth until James checked back in midway through the period and turned what appeared a certain loss into a stunning victory. Kris Humphries scored 29 points, and MarShon Brooks had 24 for the Nets, who played without Deron Williams and lacked the finisher they needed against one of the NBA’s best.

Hornets 75, Bobcats 67 CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Greivis Vasquez scored 20 points, and New Orleans handed Charlotte a franchise-record 17th straight loss. The Hornets, playing without leading scorers Eric Gordon and Chris Kaman, won despite shooting just 34 percent from the floor in the secondlowest scoring NBA game this season. Gordon was given the night off to rest, but no reason was given before the game as to why Kaman was held out of action. Carl Landry added 14 points and 12 rebounds off the bench for New Orleans. Gerald Henderson led Charlotte with 27 points. The loss assured the Bobcats (7-53) of the worst record in the league, giving them a 25 percent chance of landing the No. 1 pick in the NBA lottery on May 30.

Wizards 87, Bulls 84 CHICAGO — Kevin Seraphin had 21 points and 13 rebounds, John Wall scored 16 points, and Washington beat shorthanded Chicago. Richard Hamilton scored 22 points to lead the Bulls, who played without stars Derrick Rose and Luol Deng. Rose was out because of a sore right foot as he missed his 24th game of the season, and Deng sat out due to sore right ribs. After two straight games of clutch threepointers in the finals seconds to force overtime in wins against Miami and Detroit, the Bulls missed

is probably depressed and angry, and is taking it out on you. There are limits to what you can reasonably do for her without sacrificing the well-being of your children. Please don’t feel guilty. Your mother needs more help than you can give her. She not only requires round-the-clock physical care, but also would benefit from counseling to deal with her other issues and come to terms with her current situation. Please look into

Tears, fraud and human nature The documentary “The Woman Who Wasn’t There” (7 p.m., ID) recalls one of the stranger stories to emerge from the ashes of 9/11, exploring the more curious corners of human nature along the way. The terror attacks of 2001 created many victims, heroes and survivors. And few survivors’ accounts seemed as tragic as Tania Head’s. She described her ordeal of being badly burned as she crawled from the World Trade Center’s South Tower only to discover that her fiance had died in the North Tower. She was recognized by New York Mayors Rudolph Giuliani and Michael Bloomberg and became president of the World Trade Center Survivors’ Network. In 2007, a New York Times journalist began poking into the details of her remarkable story. And it quickly unraveled. She didn’t escape the buildings that day. She wasn’t in New York that day. She wasn’t even in the United States that day. This film began as a documentary about 9/11 survivors, and its makers approached Head before they learned of her bizarre hoax. So viewers of “The Woman Who Wasn’t There” watch as Head is confronted by the hard facts, which takes the film on a strange detour into the psychology of deception. This is hardly a recent phenomenon. The great 1937 screwball comedy “Nothing Sacred” stars Carole Lombard as a Vermont woman “dying” of radium poisoning who becomes the toast of Manhattan after cynical newspapermen try to boost circulation with her pathetic tale. They think they are exploiting her, when she, of course, was faking all the time.

 Speaking of nothing new, “Amish: Out of Order” (9 p.m., National Geographic) becomes the latest series to explore the world of young people fleeing a regimented religious life.

 “Real Sports With Bryant Gumbel” (9 p.m., HBO) profiles manager Joe Maddon, who has repeatedly taken his small-budget Tampa Bay Rays to the postseason.

Tonight’s other highlights

 Results and elimination on “The Voice” (8 p.m., NBC).

 Adventures in baby-sitting on “New Girl” (8 p.m., Fox).

 Results on “Dancing With the Stars” (8 p.m., ABC).

 Bridget tells Andrew the truth on the season finale of “Ringer” (8 p.m.).

home-health care options, including a fulltime caregiver (perhaps your sister would contribute to the cost), as well as nearby nursing homes. Most do an excellent job, and you can visit Mom every day, not only to cheer her up, but also to check on her care. Then please get some counseling for yourself in order to get through this, because we doubt Mom is going to make it easy. Dear Annie: Is it OK to ask my 80-year-old parents whether they will leave any inheritance for my siblings and me? I’m not looking to spend it. But getting an answer will help with our future retirement planning. Of course, as with most families, there are all kinds of additional “wonderful” dynamics at work that complicate asking. What is your stance on this? — Wondering


For Tuesday, April 17: You act and feel lucky this year. As a result, you’ll attract all sorts of experiences. You’ll also take more risks. . If you are single, you are the apple of many people’s eyes. If you are attached, you will indulge each other more. In a sense, you are like a new couple. The Stars Show the Kind of Day You’ll Have: 5-Dynamic; 4-Positive; 3-Average; 2-So-so; 1-Difficult Aries (March 21-April 19)  Your intuition lets you know that much is going on behind the scenes. If you tune in, making the right decision is easy. Tonight: Indulge a little more than usual. Taurus (April 20-May 20)  A meeting sets the stage for you to find out more information. You might want to get the opinions of key friends and associates. Tonight: Express your happiness. Gemini (May 21-June 20)  You often wonder about someone you regularly deal with, and now you will get answers. The decision remains: How much do you want to be involved with this person? Tonight: Deal with an older relative. Cancer (June 21-July 22)  Some people are just lucky. Whether you usually fit into this category or not, you do today if you detach and don’t get triggered. Tonight: In the whirlwind of your imagination. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)  Someone wants to share some uncomfortably intimate details. Your attitude says “no,” so don’t worry; this person probably will catch on and get a case of lockjaw. Tonight: Respond to a request. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)  You might be taken

HOW’S THAT FEEL? By Milton J. Ruff


Dear Wondering: Children should never assume there is an inheritance to receive. Plan your retirement according to what you can manage on your own. You can, however, discuss your parents’ plans for their future care, asking whether they have a health care power of attorney, a will, any wishes for their funeral, etc. These are important things that ought to be arranged while your parents are capable of doing so. However, if they resist discussing end-of-life issues, please leave it alone.

aback by someone’s behavior. Take the high road; rather than judge, be understanding. Tonight: Go along with a friend’s idea. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)  You plunge into whatever you are doing, but be aware that this activity is not a solo venture. Let a partner or associate let you know exactly what is going on with him or her. Tonight: You need some relaxation. Choose a favorite activity Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)  You have your own way of saying “yes” or “no.” Sometimes this comes across through your willingness to listen. Tonight: Don’t try to tell anyone that you are networking as you party away. Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)  You might want to rethink a situation in broader terms. Listen to a friend or associate who is dealing with a comparable situation. Tonight: Have a reflective chat. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)  You might start a conversation, but ending it could be a little more difficult. Realize what is happening between you and this person. Tonight: Return calls and emails, then decide. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)  How you handle your finances will have implications on others. Even if you are alone, you will see the impact of your actions. Tonight: Decide to invite friends over. Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)  Your ability to say what you mean while also lightening up the moment is a tremendous asset. You might note that someone is observing. Tonight: Reach out for a favorite person.

Dear Annie: I am 24 and have four small children under age 10. My mother was in a car accident last fall that left her paralyzed from the chest down, and she now lives with us. With hardly any help from my older sister, I struggle every day trying to take care of everyone’s needs. Mom screams at me and makes the smallest of things seem like the end of the world. I don’t want to see her in a nursing home, but I cannot do this 24/7. I’m losing my mind and my life. My kids don’t want to be around me, and my oldest son’s grades are declining. Do I keep going, hoping things will get better? Or do I break the news to my mom that I love her dearly but can’t take care of her? — A. Dear A.: You sound like a wonderful, caring daughter, but Mom
