Law requiring proof of citizenship may be costly in more ways than one By Scott Rothschild

T O P E K A — Voting rights advocates say that Kansas’ new law that requires a photo ID to cast a ballot is bad enough, but what’s worse is its requirement that to register to vote a person, must prove U.S. citizenship. “That part is actually far more troubling,” said Ernestine Krehbiel, president of

the League of Women Voters of Kansas. The days of voter registration drives at picnics, nursing homes, grocery stores, county fairs and the Kansas State Fair may be near an end, she said. That’s because, effective Jan. 1, 2013, state law will require voter registration applicant to provide satisfactory evidence of U.S. citizenship. The provision applies only to new voter

registration applications in Kansas.

Focus on birth certificate Currently, when registering to vote, a person signs a statement swearing or affirming that he or she is a U.S. citizen. Submitting a false voter registration application is punishable by up to 17 months in prison. There are several ways to prove citizenship, but the most common document

that will be used under the new law will be a birth certificate, which can either be presented in person at the time of registration, or a photocopy of the document that can be mailed in with the registration application. But Krehbiel said that in this day of identity theft, people are rightly wary about sharing personal and documented information with a stranger. “If you showed up at my

A centennial celebration on Saturday at Potter Lake will mark the lake’s history and highlight the work that’s been done on the Kansas University campus landmark in recent years. “It’s turned around, and we get a lot of compliments now,” said Matt Nahrstedt, a KU senior from St. Peter’s, Mo., who is president of the Potter Lake Project. That project involves students who have worked to improve the lake and its surroundings in a variety of ways, including helping to secure funding for a dredging project that Nahrstedt said was much needed. The students will join other members of the community at the centennial celebration, scheduled from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday at the lake. Two bands are scheduled to perform.

In case of inclement weather, the event will move inside to the Hawk’s Nest on the first floor of the Kansas Union. The public is encouraged to come, Nahrstedt said. About three years ago, when the project began, the lake was covered with green plants, and an oxygen-

starved environment was leading to the death of fish in the lake, he said. In addition to the dredging project, other efforts, such as the addition of wetland plants around storm drains, have helped address some of the runoff issues the lake was facing, said Scott Campbell, associate director for the Kansas Biological Survey. The Kansas Biological Survey has helped the stu-

dents with some of their work on the lake, he said. Still, even with the dredging and other efforts, plant life could come back to the lake. “We’re all anxious to see how Potter Lake responds to this work that’s been done,” Campbell said. “We don’t know if it’s going to have an immediate effect on the plant growth.” That’s because of the residual amounts of phosphorus from fertilizers that have run into the lake over time, he said. That could fuel more plant growth. Still, Campbell said, the lake is improved from a few years ago, and he said he would be surprised to see any significant fish kills at the lake after the recent efforts to improve it. The Potter Lake Project would like to see more lighting, trash cans and recycling bins, and a new wheelchairaccessible path at the lake, Nahrstedt said. — Higher education reporter Andy Hyland can be reached at 832-6388.

At Lawrence Memorial Hospital, fluorescent light bulbs, batteries, plastics used in surgery, cardboard packaging and even the kitchen grease are recycled. The focus on reducing waste is due to a green team of employees that formed last summer. Made up of staff from throughout the hospital, the group of about a dozen is interested in projects that have a “green plus green” value, said the team’s coordinator, Tom Damewood. “We want to do green activities. But we want to make sure there is cost savings to the hospital,” said Damewood, LMH’s director of environmental services. Company green teams are becoming more common, said Megan MacPherson, the Kansas Green Team Coordinator for the Kansas Department of Health and Environment. There are more than 180 green teams registered on the state’s green team website, Among the hundred state agencies participating is Clinton Lake State Park, where employees use both sides of the paper to print and recycle outdated recreational and regulation brochures. “It’s such a popular thing now days, it’s easy,” green team leader Bruce Husman said of convincing the small office staff to start making changes. For those interested in starting a green team, here are tips:

KU has a Center for Service Learning that coordinates those efforts and offers the certif ication, which students can have added to their transcripts by taking enough service

Have a diverse group Much of reducing waste revolves around behavioral changes, said Eileen Horn, sustainability coordinator for the city of Lawrence and Douglas County. So, ideas that come from employees are often the easiest to adopt. “You get buy-in from the employees, and they all feel like they are part of something and are working collaboratively on a project,” she said. Damewood said LMH’s team is a “very active and energetic group” that was already pursuing

Mrs. Johnson was the former head cook at Woodlawn School in Lawrence from 1964 until her retirement due to health concerns. She was the former president of the Lawrence Memorial Hospital Auxiliary, and served as chairwoman of various services and volunteered in others. She also managed the baby/child car seat program through the LMH Auxiliary. She worked in door-todoor school censuses in North Lawrence, worked on election boards, held office and was active in the North Lawrence Improvement Association. She also served on the Community Development Board as a representative for North Lawrence. She was a life member of PTA, was a member of the Low Vision Support Group in Lawrence and attended the Low Vision Support Group when it began in Emporia in 2006.

She was a member of the Republican Women and was active in local Lawrence politics, supporting Johnson many local and state Republican candidates.

learning courses. This fall, KU hopes to have 450 students earn that certification. Ninety-one students earned it five years ago. The center’s director is Andi Witczak, an assistant professor of design. She said expanded service learning opportunities are part of KU’s strategic planning process. “The university is trying to get all students more engaged with their learning,” she said. “Especially in the freshman and sophomore year.” Today, about 150 class sections include a service learning component, she said. Colleges typically ask about community service in the application process and are looking to extend that kind of learning as a structured part of their course work. And, Witczak said, today’s


individual green efforts. “We do it as a voluntary program,” he said. “Employees who are interested volunteer to be on the committee instead of picking and choosing them. So, we are capturing people who have an interest and desire and come with enthusiasm. Once you have a group, make sure it is a diverse one that includes all departments and levels of the organization.

students are typically more engaged with their communities coming out of high school. “It’s really a bottom-up kind of thing,” Witczak said. “Students are asking for it.” What she’d really like to do, she said, is reach more faculty on campus who can incorporate this kind of thing into their own classes. No need to do that with people like Cheryl Lester, chairwoman of KU’s American studies department. She’s been incorporating service learning into her classes for years. “I believe service learning is absolutely essential to undergraduate education,” she said. “Because I think that connecting knowledge to everyday experience is how people really learn.” In her Jewish-American literature and culture course, students read literature for Audio-Reader. “It is important to develop a focused experience and develop one that would be a

meaningful experience for students,” Lester said. Students began reading Jewish publications to serve Jewish listeners but quickly realized that many would be interested in things beyond Jews in Jewish places, too. So, today the students read materials on immigration, diversity and a range of other topics that reflect the Jewish experience in America. “It’s what we all hope to do — get an education and do something with it,” said Hannah Vick, a junior from Lawrence in Lester’s class. She said the service part doesn’t stop when the class is over. She hopes to continue being involved with AudioReader after the class. “The best way to get an education is do real-life examples,” Vick said. “It sort of focuses the student to build that connection, which could so easily be lost.”

Conquer recycling first Start with the recycling basics of paper, cardboard, aluminum and plastic bottles, MacPherson said. Those are the ones that will most likely be picked up by commercial companies or easily taken to recycling centers. Bins should be in common areas such as break rooms. And, there should be bins on every floor and in each department. “It’s sad but true, we’re lazy. So make sure there are enough so it isn’t a trek for someone to take their items,” MacPherson said. Richardson said the city helps businesses figure out what recycling options are available and how to sign up for programs. Once the bins are established, MacPherson said the green team needs to hold orientations with each department so employees know what is accepted and what isn’t.

Off ices could consider changing purchasing policies, composting food scraps and replacing paper, plastic or Styrofoam dinnerware with plates, bowls and utensils that can be washed and reused.

Group: At least 500 killed in riots At least 500 people died in religious rioting that followed Nigeria’s presidential election, a civil rights group said Sunday, as volatile state gubernatorial elections loom this week. Meanwhile, police in the northern state of Bauchi said at least 11 recent college graduates who helped run polling stations as part of the country’s national youth service corps have been killed in postelection violence, while other female poll workers have been raped. The Civil Rights Congress of Nigeria said that the worst hit area was Zonkwa, a town in rural Kaduna state, where more than 300 people died in rioting. Muslim opposition supporters began riots as results from the April 16 election showed Christian President Goodluck Jonathan had won the vote. Many in the predominantly Muslim north of Africa’s most populous nation felt the next president should have been from their region because a Muslim president died last year before he could complete his term.

Officials pushing engineer initiative By Scott Rothschild

TOPEKA — Despite the state’s budget woes, higher education officials are hoping that when legislators reconvene this week, they will approve a high-dollar initiative to produce more engineers. The push to boost engineering graduates has been one of the “bright spots” of the 2011 legislative session, said Kansas University Chancellor Bernadette Gray-Little.

“We need to increase engineers by 50 to 60 percent,” she said. “At KU, we must expand our teaching facilities. We would recruit more (engineering students) if we had a place to put them.” The Kansas Senate has approved a plan that calls for spending $4 million in the fiscal year that starts July 1, 2012, and $7 million for each year after. The state funds would come from casino gambling revenues, and the universities — KU,

TOPEKA — As students across the state wrap up taking statewide tests, Kansas Education Commissioner Diane DeBacker says she fears more schools will fail to make Adequate Yearly Progress under the federal No Child Left Behind act. “We are leveling off,” DeBacker said in a presentation to the Kansas Board of Regents last week. “That’s one of the challenges.” Kansas students’ achievement has SCHOOLS increased each year since 2004. Last year, 86.3 percent met or exceeded standards in reading and 83.6 percent in math. And Kansas students continue to outperform the national average in ACT, SAT and National Assessment of Educational Progress scores. These improvements have occurred at a time when the number of children receiving free or reduced-price lunch, in special education, or who come to school speaking another language has increased dramatically. But getting those remaining students up to standards as required under NCLB is problematic, DeBacker said. Reaching 100 percent compliance is impossible, she said, especially in light of $300 million in cuts in state funding to public schools over the past couple of years.

Urban buildings unplug from water grid In one of Seattle’s most urban neighborhoods, a small elementary school is trying to wean itself off the city’s water grid. The classroom toilet composts and treats waste on site rather than flushing it into city sewer pipes. Water washed down sinks doesn’t flow into storm drains but recirculates to a 14-foot-high wall filled with plants, which will eventually soak it all up. For now, excess flows through the wall. Plenty of “green” buildings strive to generate as much energy as they use, but Bertschi School’s new science building is one of dozens nationwide taking it a step further. They’re attempting to unplug from the municipal water and sewer system to collect, recycle and reuse water and wastewater on site, a concept often referred to as net zero water. The U.S. Army has a goal for several installations to reach zero water, energy and waste use, and last week it designated Fort Riley in Kansas, Camp Rilea in Oregon and Joint Base Lewis-McChord in Washington, among others, to be net zero water.

EcoHawks power up small-scale smart grid in D.C. By Christine Metz

When a team of seven Kansas University engineering students traveled to Washington, D.C., recently, they brought with them a solar panel, popcorn maker, car battery and a lot of switches. The items were used in a small-scale model of what a future electrical grid would look like. The model, which fit onto a rolling cart, was on display at the National Mall last weekend. KU was among the 55 schools competing in the People, Prosperity and the Planet (P3) Student Design Competition for Sustainability, which was hosted by the Environmental Protection Agency. Late last summer, the group, which is part of the KU EcoHawks, began working on the concept with the help of a $10,000 grant from the EPA. At the core, the EcoHawks

were looking at ways to with the computer software design a small-scale smart and electrical hardware that grid system that could one allow the different compoday be built on a larger scale nents of the grid to interact. to support millions of electric With a series of switches, students can choose to use the vehicles. “If everyone had (an elec- gasoline generator, renewtric vehicle), we would need able energy or stored energy to build 165 new power to power the popcorn maker. “It levels out the plants,” said Chris Depcik, KU assisdemand’s peaks and tant professor of valleys,” KU senior mechanical engiand team leader Mickneering. “But if we ey Clemon said. did it intelligently, A system such as the we wouldn’t need one the EcoHawks any.” envision is years away.

much of a stretch to think that one day Lawrence residents will be charging their electric cars at night when energy is at its cheapest and then using it during the day to either power their homes or sell it back to the electric companies at a higher price, Clemon said. The EcoHawks’ smallscale smart grid didn’t take home the $75,000 in grant funding that was at stake as part of the EPA competition. But it did earn an honorable mention. Had the EcoHawks received the grant, they would have used it to build a larger scale grid. Plans for the project continue with the hope that companies will come forward with support. “The only difference in not getting the grant: I’m taking a day off instead of a week,” Clemon quipped.

students, and she sells them from “It spread. It’s crazy word of mouth,” she said. “The business appeared out of nowhere.”

Starting young Muñoz started playing bassoon in seventh grade, when her music director suggested she try it. By high school, she knew she wanted to play professionally and auditioned for conservatories. At Oberlin College in Ohio, she was assigned to play the contrabassoon, an instrument twice the length of the 8-foot-long bassoon and much lower. “I’ve had a love-hate relationship with it,” she said. Muñoz hopped all over the country while getting her education, working at a boarding school at Interlochen Center for the Arts in Michigan, getting her master’s degree at the University of Ohio and working in Boston and earning a performance degree there before landing in Kansas. This much time spent at school is common for professional musicians. “We invest as much time into our education as doctors do,” she said. From creating music to creating reeds While in school, Muñoz learned how to make the reeds that eventually would go with both her 1953 Heckel bassoon and her much newer contrabassoon. Muñoz began making reeds for students after learning they couldn’t play well on machine-made reeds. “It really determines how much they’re going to learn,” she said. Muñoz said all bassoonists have different methods for


DeBacker said the law is unfair because some schools that have made significant gains will be labeled as failing. “Schools are going to fail even if they work hard,” she said. In February, the Kansas Department of Education requested that the U.S.

A SPECIAL DEVICE HOLDS a trimmed piece of bamboo while Leigh Miller Muñoz carefully shaves it into shape with an X-Acto knife. making reeds. ● She starts with raw bamboo reeds, generally from France, Germany, Argentina and, sometimes, China. An interesting point: Muñoz said good cane usually grows where good wine grapes grow. ● Muñoz uses a metal instrument, called a profiler, to scrape the reed down to a certain thickness. At this time, the reed is still one flat piece, so she scrapes it from thinner in the middle to thicker at the edges. Consistency is key. “It’s just like bowling,” she said. “You want to keep everything the same every time.” ● Muñoz bends the reed in half and uses a shaper to give it the signature triangular shape. She uses an X-Acto knife to shave off excess wood, which can get a little messy. “A good vacuum is what you need,” she said. ● She scores the base of the reed so it can be bent more easily and ties it around a round form. From there, it will soak in water. ● Muñoz wraps the base of the reed with three 22-gauge brass wires, which won’t rust in water. Then she uses colorcoded crochet thread — green

for Argentinean reed, purple for German — to cover the wires. She seals the reed with cement used in model-making. “I have to make it pretty. It’s something you see every day,” she said. ● Then she off icially makes it a reed by cutting the opening at the top, careful to make it symmetrical. She will scrape it thinner again and test the reed for intonation, resistance, smoothness of sound and other qualities. The reeds must rest, and a typical one takes three weeks to make. Muñoz said she makes about 500 a year, 200 of which are for herself. She will only use 20, but she has to find the ones that make the best sound for auditions. “You have to have something that’s so perfect,” she said. Muñoz is happy her business has taken off, and she’s sent reeds as far away as Israel. But she’s happy to be doing anything related to her passion. “As long as it has to do with bassoon, I’m not going to be picky,” she said.

Department of Education hold the annual targets for student performance on reading and math assessments to the 2009-10 levels. Part of the reason for this is that Kansas has adopted what are called Common Core Standards for student performance and has in place a database that will better gauge individual students’ improvements, education officials said. “In light of Kansas’ demonstrated commitment to con-

tinuing reform, and the state’s intent to maintain challenging performance targets, I think the request for some flexibility while we work to implement the new standards and assessments is appropriate,” said State Board of Education Chairman David Dennis. DeBacker said the agency has not received any word back yet from the federal education department.

Ex-racetrack announcer’s talent shared online Over 400 escaped AFGHANISTAN

On Easter, pope urges diplomacy in Middle East By Frances D’Emilio Associated Press Writer

VATICAN CITY — Pope Benedict XVI offered an Easter prayer Sunday for diplomacy to prevail over warfare in Libya and for citizens of the Middle East to build a new society based on respect. He also called on Europeans to welcome refugees from North Africa. “In heaven, all is peace and gladness. But, alas, all is not so on earth!” the pope lamented as he delivered the traditional “Urbi et Orbi” message from the central balcony of St. Peter’s Basilica to a crowd of more than 100,000 that overflowed from St. Peter’s Square. “In the current conflict in Libya, may diplomacy and dialogue replace arms, and may those who suffer as a result of the conflict be given access to humanitarian aid,” he said. Referring to North Africa and the Middle East, the pope prayed that all citizens, especially young people, would

POPE BENEDICT XVI HOLDS HIS PASTORAL STAFF during the “Urbi et Orbi” (Latin for “to the City and to the World”) message from the balcony of St. Peter’s Basilica, at the end of the Easter Mass in St. Peter’s Square at the Vatican on Sunday. “work to promote the common good and to build a society where poverty is defeated and every political choice is inspired by respect for the human person.” Uprisings, repression and civil warfare have triggered an exodus of people to Italian

shores as well as other countries in the region. Europe has been split over whether to accept or deport tens of thousands of migrants, many of them from Libya and elsewhere in northern Africa. Benedict rallied to the side of refugees, urging people of

good will to “open their hearts to welcome them.” “Here, in this world of ours, the Easter alleluia still contrasts with the cries and laments that arise from so many painful situations: deprivation, hunger, disease, war, violence,” said the pontiff, resplendent in gold-colored robes as he sat on a chair and read his speech in Italian. This year, Easter fell on the same day in the Orthodox and Roman Catholic church calendars, and in Jerusalem, both Orthodox and Catholics worshiped at the Church of the Holy Sepulcher, revered as the site of Jesus’ Good Friday crucifixion and burial and of his resurrection on Easter Sunday. Protestants held their own ceremonies outside the walled Old City at the Garden Tomb, which some identify as the site of Jesus’ burial. The 84-year-old Benedict’s voice cracked at times during the Mass, but he ended his two-hour appearance Sunday by reading aloud holiday greetings in 65 languages.

inmates include Taliban insurgents

By Mirwais Khan Associated Press Writer

KANDAHAR , A FGHANISTAN — More than 400 inmates — many of them Taliban insurgents — escaped from the main prison in the southern Afghan city of Kandahar overnight through an underground tunnel, an official said today. The massive jailbreak in Kandahar, the focus of much of the international military effort to defeat the insurgency, is a reminder that the Afghan government is still weak and easily thwarted in the south, despite an influx of international troops, funding and advisers. The escape comes after years of security upgrades and tightened procedures at the 1,200-inmate Sarposa Prison following a brazen 2008 Taliban attack that freed 900 prisoners. On Sunday night, about 476 prisoners streamed out of a tunnel dug between the prison and the outside and disappeared into Kandahar

city, prison supervisor Ghulam Dastagir Mayar said. He said many of the missing were Taliban militants. Taliban spokesman Zabiullah Mujahid said the insurgents on the outside dug the 1 ,050-foot tunnel to the prison over f ive months, bypassing government checkpoints. The tunnel finally reached the prison cells Sunday night, and the inmates were led through it to freedom by three prisoners who had been informed of the plan, Mujahid said. About 100 of those who escaped were Taliban commanders, and most of the others were fighters with the insurgency, he said. In the 2008 attack, dozens of militants on motorbikes and two suicide bombers assaulted the prison. One suicide bomber set off an explosives-laden tanker truck at the prison gate while a second bomber blew up an escape route through a back wall. About 900 inmates escaped, including 400 Taliban fighters.

Giffords’ doctors clear her to attend shuttle launch, husband says H O U S T O N ( A P ) — Rep. Gabrielle Giffords will attend husband Mark Kelly’s space shuttle launch in Florida on Friday, Kelly said, allowing the Arizona congresswoman to travel for the first time since she was flown from Tucson to Houston more than three months ago to recover Giffords from a gunshot wound to the head. In an interview with CBS’ Katie Couric, Kelly said Giffords’ doctors had given her permission to travel to Cape Canaveral, Fla., for the launch of Endeavour, which is scheduled for 3:47 p.m. Friday. Kelly is the commander of the shuttle mission. CBS released excerpts of the interview Sunday, and it was scheduled to air today on “CBS Evening News with Katie Couric,” according to a network statement. “I’ve met with her doctors, her neurosurgeon and her doctors, and ... they’ve given us permission to take her down to the launch,” Kelly said in the interview in Houston. The network statement did not specify when the interview occurred. James Harsf ield, spokesman for NASA’s Johnson Space Center in Houston, referred all questions about Giffords to the congresswoman’s office, where there was no immediate comment. President Barack Obama and the first family also are scheduled to watch the launch, although it’s unclear if they will watch it with Giffords. Families view launches at Kennedy Space Center from a restricted area, and there are no plans for Giffords to make a public appearance. It will be the first time Giffords has traveled since she was flown from Tucson, Ariz., to Houston on Jan. 21 for rehab. The Democrat was shot in the head Jan. 8 in a shooting in Tucson that killed six people and injured 12 others. Giffords’ spokesman, C.J. Karamargin, and her chief of staff, Pia Carusone, plan to hold a news conference after the launch to discuss the congresswoman’s reaction, but Giffords will not go to the news conference because it could be an emotional moment for her, Karamargin said. Giffords went to Kelly’s last launch in 2008, when he commanded the space shuttle Discovery. The two married in 2007. Obama last saw Giffords on Jan. 12, just four days after the

PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA EMBRACES MARK KELLY, right, the husband of critically wounded Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, D-Ariz., at the end of a ceremony honoring the victims of a shooting rampage in this Jan. 12 file photo. Kelly said his wife has received permission from doctors to attend the launch of the Endeavour on Friday, the last trip for the shuttle and the next-to-last shuttle mission. shooting, when he visited her intensive care hospital room in Tucson and reported that she opened her eyes for the first time a few minutes after he left. More recently, he wrote a tribute about the congresswoman in Time magazine’s list of 100 most influential people in the world, saying that she wasn’t known before the shooting, but now “she’s got the prayers of a nation rooting for her.” The shooting happened as Giffords was holding a community outreach event in the parking lot of a Tucson shopping center. A gunman shot her in the head. Jared Lee Loughner, 22, has pleaded not guilty to charges stemming from the attack and is in custody. Giffords has not been seen publicly since the shooting and has spent the last three months relearning how to speak, walk and take care of herself. She has been singing — as part of musical therapy — asking for her favorite foods and visiting with family, friends and her rabbi. Kelly returned to training for the shuttle launch in February after taking time off to be at his wife’s hospital bedside. Endeavour ’s two-week trip will be the last for that shuttle and the next-to-last shuttle mission. Shuttle Atlantis will close out the 30-year shuttle program this summer. Kelly and f ive crewmates will deliver a $2 billion physics experiment to the International Space Station, as well as critical spare parts to keep the orbiting outpost running for another decade.

Food security As federal policymakers consider changes to farm subsidy programs they should also consider the dangers of outsourcing U.S. food production to other countries.


eldom is there a day that our national leaders don’t have to deal with unsettling issues about the Middle East at least in part because the oil produced in that region is so important to our nation’s economy and security. That is a fact that leaders in Washington should keep in mind as they debate the important issue of America’s agricultural policy. As recently reported, the question of agricultural subsides likely will receive much attention as Congress tackles the long overdue topic of reining in our national debt and budget deficits. It may well be that agricultural subsidies go the way of the one-horse plow. But subsidies should not disappear without a thoughtful discussion about what their loss will mean to the future of American agriculture. Over the last several decades America has seen many industries leave this country to go to lands where labor and other commodities are available at a lower cost. Agriculture is still an industry that relies on two key commodities — labor and land. We can envision how American farmers will struggle to compete if agriculture becomes an industry where the winner is solely determined by the lowest price producer. Both today and tomorrow, there are places in the world that will have cheaper land and labor than America. The world is a better place because we’ve allowed the forces of the free market to spread across the globe. Having a thoughtful discussion about how to nurture America’s agriculture industry should not be an excuse to return to protectionism. However, it is undeniable that the ability to produce food is a critical link in this country’s national security. Our food supply has been so safe and so secure for so long that it is easy to take it for granted. That is a testament to this nation’s agricultural policy. As leaders consider changing that policy, there should be ample discussion about what assurances can be made that America’s food supply will continue to be as safe, secure and plentiful as it is today. So, it’s good to have the discussion about farm subsidies, but it’s important to keep in mind the potential cost to national security if the work of American agriculture is shifted to other parts of the world.

Slavery defined America’s Civil War In the penultimate paragraph of perhaps the second-greatest speech ever delivered on American soil, Abraham Lincoln set forth the reason the nation was engaged in a great Civil War. “One-eighth of the whole population were colored slaves, not distributed generally over the Union, but localized in the Southern part of it,” Lincoln said in his second inaugural address. “These slaves constituted a peculiar and powerful interest. All knew that this interest was somehow the cause of the war.” That’s pretty clear: The Civil War was fought because of slavery. So if that were so evident at noon on March 4, 1865, why has there been such controversy for a century and a half over the real cause of the Civil War? That is a far more difficult question. For reasons economic, social, political and historical, both sides in the Civil War have portrayed the struggle as one over states’ rights, or the size of government or the economic destiny of the country. Slavery was the cause that dared not speak its name. These other issues were factors, to be sure. But they all grew out of slavery and the great divide that slavery created — first between black and white, then between landowner and laborer, next between North and South, finally between the Union and the Confederacy.

Slavery was central Strains of these struggles and these divides still mark us. Perhaps they will persist longer than Lincoln’s prescription, when he suggested later in that splendid inauguration paragraph that the fighting would last “until all the wealth piled by the bondsman’s 250 years of unrequited toil shall be sunk, and until every drop of blood drawn with the lash shall

We have to face this issue not only to get our past right. We also have to answer it to get our future right.” be paid by another drawn with the sword.” But we cannot erase those divisions until we face, forthrightly and courageously, the issue that seems so obvious 150 years later and that still seems so difficult to confront. Slavery, and not economic and political independence, was at the center of the war. To those who deny it, consider this question: Would there have been a civil war on American soil if for some reason slavery were not planted on this continent along with tobacco and cotton? “When you talk to people around the country and ask them the causes of the Civil War, you get the same answers you would have gotten in 1861,” says Andrew E. Masich, president of Pittsburgh’s Heinz History Center. “Some white people in the South think it was a war to protect their homeland and states’ rights. Some blacks can’t believe the war was about slavery because they don’t believe white people would fight for them. And in the North there are the Unionists, who think the war was fought to preserve the country. There’s still no agreement on the root causes of the Civil War.”

Multiple causes? In truth, it is possible to search the remarks of Abraham Lincoln and to find in them multiple causes of the Civil War. He began his presidency hoping to restrict the spread of slavery. Then he struggled to preserve the Union. Only later did he decide the fight was about freedom. And by freedom, he meant freedom for all, a broad freedom as envisioned in the Declaration of Independence but — and here is where Lincoln charted new territory — applied to all Americans, white and black. In the greatest speech ever delivered on American soil, Lincoln spoke of “unfinished work,” and he was not talking only about the task of winning the war. He was speaking, too, of winning that broader definition of freedom. That is what he meant by the phrase “new birth of freedom.” And his opening, speaking of what happened fourscore and seven years earlier — in 1776 — makes it clear that he is taking the Declaration of Independence and grafting it onto the American Constitution, or at least onto the American conscience, with its timeless celebration of the Enlightenment principle that “all men are created equal.” But even the American Constitution was marked by slavery. The specter haunting the Constitutional Convention, along with the fecklessness of the doomed Articles of Confederation, was slavery. The founding fathers did many things, but they punted on slavery, leaving it to a future generation to settle. That future generation dealt with it by fighting over the Missouri Compromise and the Kansas-Nebraska Act and then fighting the Civil War. “Race was a central factor in the nation until the Civil War, through the Civil War and

The Kansas House passed (6362) and sent to the Senate a controverYEARS sial proposal to AGO require front-seat IN 1986 passengers of cars and pickup trucks to buckle their seat belts or face a fine. The bill’s sponsor, Rep. Jessie Branson, D-Lawrence, said that the bill would help cut down on the 450-500 traffic fatalities in Kansas every year.

Letters Policy


Facing reality During the war, the primacy of slavery was incontrovertible. In its commentary on the firing on Fort Sumter, the Chicago Tribune said “that barbarous institution” was “the cause of the rebellion which months of effort has ripened into the bloody strife this day commenced.” Frederick Douglass said at the war’s start that the cessation of slavery should be the price of secession from the Union. We have to face this issue not only to get our past right. We also have to answer it to get our future right. “The past,” Harvard historian Niall Ferguson has written, “is our only reliable guide to the present and to the multiple futures that lie before us, only one of which will actually happen.” Understand slavery and you understand the Civil War. Understand the Civil War and you understand America. The New Freedom, the New Deal, the great prosperity that followed World War II, the youth and women’s movements of the 1960s, the Reagan Revolution — they’re all important. But not one of them defines us the way the Civil War did, and does. That’s why the 150th anniversary of the Civil War is not only a commemoration. It also is an opportunity.

beyond the Civil War,” Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr., the Illinois Democrat who has proposed a national commission to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the Civil War, said in an interview. “There never has been a moment that slavery and race was not a factor, and yet both sides were able to subvert the issue of race and not deal with the role of slavery in the war.”

To the editor: The Kansas Bioscience Authority is funded both by both private and state tax-based monies and is the latest target of highly coordinated, earth-scorching by the Kansas ultra-right toward privatizing all civic services, structures, and projects. The KBA was highly efficient and effective in gaining placement of the National Bio and Agro-Defense Facility in Manhattan. Many states fought hard for that facility. Next with the KBA, will come a promised audit/investigation by governor appointees which will leak terrible grievances against KBA leadership, such as going out to dinner at a private sector restaurant. We the people must understand that public employees cannot afford such extravagances. We will then witness a full-scale drive by the governor and Legislature to place KBA under control and management of the executive branch, which will then contract management and control to a front corporation for the Koch brothers. Any outgrowth research or production entities from KBA efforts

will be in the trusted hands and profits of our famous billionaire Kansas brothers. A new corporate manager will be contracted for an annual base salary of $12,500,000, with writtenin-the-contract bonuses and severance guarantees of at least $1 billion, should he or she be caught in unethical conduct such as diningout with a firefighter or a university professor/researcher. Taxpayers will still fund government projects attracted by KBA efforts, of course, but because the entity is contracted to the trusted private sector, we will never know about those silly details. Let us now praise famous unfettered markets. Barbara Palmer, Lawrence

A majority of those elected campaigned on the promise to create jobs and turn the state’s economy around, but the efforts of this Legislature do not create one single job.

The carpet of grass, the spring foliage, the blue sky and the warm sun combine to make the park a place of unusual attraction.

The park is an ideal playground for the children, during the warm afternoons of spring, and a romp through the park will bring health quicker than most anything else.” “The long delayed Boy Scout movement has finally been started.

doing the opposite by giving unnecessary tax breaks to corporations and wealthy individuals in the state. For example, defunding public schools to the levels of the 1990s not only cheats our children of a great education and weakens our communities, but these cuts result in eliminating thousands of jobs across the state. Another example is the closing of the Kansas Neurological Institute. The residents of KNI are the most vulnerable citizens of our state and in the greatest need of care. Closing the facility not only leaves the residents and their families in a crisis, but again, there goes a few hundred more jobs. The legislature needs to wake up and stop giving away money through tax breaks to those who do not need them; stop taking from those in the state who are most in need and from the children who are the leaders of tomorrow, and find ways to generate more revenue.

Mountain lion spotted in backyard tree TULSA, OKLA. (AP) — The Tulsa Zoo will care for a 70pound female mountain lion that was found in the backyard of a north Tulsa home. Police officers and officials from the Tulsa Zoo, Animal Control and the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation responded after a homeowner reported finding the animal about 20 feet up in a tree shortly after noon on Saturday. Officials shot the animal with a tranquilizer, but she ran through several backyards and trees before she got drowsy and fell asleep. Zoo veterinarian Kay Backues says the mountain lion had no apparent injuries and will be cared for there until a permanent home is found. The agency said mountain lions are rare in Oklahoma, and tend to be found in the southern and western parts of the state.

UK, Ohio State among KU’s 2011-12 hoops foes By Gary Bedore

An appearance in a star-studded Maui Invitational, a neutralsite game against Kentucky in New York and a home clash against Ohio State highlight Kansas University’s 2011-12 nonconference basketball schedule, which was released Sunday. The Jayhawks will tangle with coach John Calipari’s Wildcats on Nov. 15 in Madison Square Garden in the inaugural Champions Classic doubleheader.

The Champions Classic is a three-year series involving powerhouse programs KU, UK, Duke and Michigan State. The Blue Devils and Spartans also will play Nov. 15 in the Garden. In 2012, KU will play Michigan State, while UK plays Duke, at Atanta’s Georgia Dome. In 2013, KU will face Duke, and MSU will meet UK at Chicago’s United Center. The Nov. 21-23 Maui f ield includes Duke, Georgetown, Memphis, UCLA, Tennessee, Michigan and Chaminade.

Matchups will be announced this summer. KU will meet Ohio State on Dec. 10 in Allen Fieldhouse. The Buckeyes went 34-3 last season and reached the NCAA Sweet 16 as a No. 1 seed. Jared Sullinger, a 6-foot9 forward who would have been selected in the top five in the 2011 NBA Draft, has announced plans to return for his sophomore season. KU will meet USC on Dec. 22 in Galen Center in Los Angeles. USC went 19-14 last year and lost in the first round of the NCAAs. USC had looked into the pos-

sibility of playing KU in Wichita in the return game of the homeand-home series. “It’s a situation in which a promoter probably asked them to do it, and they looked at it. We thought it wouldn’t happen, taking the game out of their building (in L.A.),” said KU senior associate AD Larry Keating, who is in charge of scheduling. At home, KU will meet Towson (Nov. 11), Florida Atlantic (Nov. 30), South Florida (Dec. 3), Long Beach State (Dec. 6), Howard (Dec. 29) and North

Dakota (Dec. 31). KU will play This is Davidson on Dec. 19 in Kansas potentially City’s Sprint Center.

TEXAS RANGERS FANS WAVE BROOMS during the bottom of the ninth inning against the Royals. The Rangers beat K.C., 8-7, Sunday in Arlington, Texas, to complete the three-game sweep.

By Matt Tait

With a smile befitting The Joker lighting up his face, Olathe North High senior and Kansas University football signee Adonis Saunders cruised across the finish line in first place over the weekend at the Kansas Relays. The grin was vintage Saunders, a 5-foot-11, 185-pound defensive back who signed with KU coach Turner Gill in February. “That’s Adonis,” O-North sprint coach Eniak Mpwo said. “He’s a big clown. But he’s tough.” He’s also lightning-fast, and his performance at the Relays — Saunders won the 100 and also anchored O-North’s 4x100 relay team to gold — was the first sign of concrete proof that Gill’s second recruiting class at KU has some speed. During Friday’s preliminary rounds of the 100, Saunders ripped off a 10.63, the fastest time in the state this year by a prep sprinter. One day later, in the finals, Saunders topped his own time by winning the event in 10.59. For a little perspective, former KU standout Jake Sharp’s fastest time at Salina Central was 10.49, in 2005. According to the Kansas State High School Activities web site, the Class 6A state record is 10. 36 and belongs to Mario Ponds, who set it at Wichita Southeast in 1996. “Honestly, I really didn’t expect that,” Saunders said. “I actually thought I would go about 10.8 or 10.7, but I just going real good and started hitting it.” That’s often the way people describe Saunders’ football game, as well. While some defensive backs use their wheels for

OKLAHOMA STATE’S ANDREW HUDSON waits on the side after his heat of the Kansas Relays discus on Saturday at Memorial Stadium.

When he left the small West Texas town of Bushland to play football on scholarship for Oklahoma State, Andrew Hudson felt like the luckiest young man on earth. Then he suffered a ruptured disc in his back that required surgery. Later, he missed six weeks because of a finger surgery. Back from that, he had a blast playing in a game against Louisiana Lafayette and was so looking forward to playing against Texas Tech. A concussion in practice kept that from happening. Oh well, at least he was back in time to play against Nebraska. In that one, the Cornhuskers’ Eric Martin tagged Hudson with a helmet-to-helmet hit that resulted in a one-game suspension for Martin and left Hudson with such a severe concussion it ended his football career.

He read about Nathan Stiles, the Spring Hill High senior who intercepted a pass in a game in Osawatomie, walked to the sideline and said, “My head is really hurting.” He collapsed shortly thereafter and was pronounced dead at 4 a.m. Hudson, who now throws the Hudson’s short-term memory discus for Oklahoma State, told was so damaged he missed six the story between throws Saturweeks of school, had to drop a day at the Kansas Relays of how class and take an incomplete in a he has become so close to the Stiles family in such a short time. couple of others.

ARLINGTON, TEXAS (AP) — Bruce Chen had an impressive streak going before getting to Texas. So did the Kansas City Royals. Chen gave up three home runs 1 in 4 ⁄3 innings on the way to the end of his personal seven-game winning stretch in Kansas City’s 8-7 loss Sunday as the AL Westleading Texas Rangers wrapped up a three-game sweep.

The Royals (12-10) have lost eight straight on the road against the Rangers, dating to 2009. “What happened here stays here,” Chen said. Chen (3-1) lost for the first time in 12 starts, since his last loss Aug. 23 at Detroit. The only pitcher in that span with more consecutive wins was Carlos Zambrano of the Chicago Cubs, but his eight-game winning streak ended Sunday in a loss to the Los Angeles Dodgers. Chen gave up six runs and seven hits while walking three with two strikeouts. “He wasn’t sharp today, but he really battled,” manager Ned Yost said. “He was out there competing with everything he had, just couldn’t get the ball down.” ● Box score on page 3B

Golfer Westwood regains No. 1 spot JAKARTA , I NDONESIA (AP) — Lee Westwood won the Indonesian Masters on Sunday and ended up regaining the No. 1 spot in the world when Luke Donald lost a playoff in the PGA Tour event in South Carolina. Donald would have jumped from No. 3 to No. 1 with a victory, but lost to Brandt Snedeker on the

second hole of a playoff in The Heritage at Hilton Head Island. After waiting out a lightning delay on the final hole, Westwood finished off a 3-under 69 for a three-stroke victory over Thailand’s Thongchai Jaidee. The English star, ranked second behind Martin Kaymer entering the week, won on his 38th birthday.


Bad habits flare up in Miami’s loss

Asked what he wanted for his birthday, Westwood replied, “Something silver and shiny.” As he stepped off the 18th green a portion of the gallery sang “Happy Birthday.” Westwood finished at 19-under 269 in the Asian Tour event at Royale Jakarta. He took a fivestroke lead into the final day after

opening with rounds of 68, 66 and 66. “It was quite a day, really,” Westwood said. “I knew it wasn’t going to be easy with a fiveshot lead. I’m experienced enough to know that patience is the key. “I hit the ball great, but didn’t hit the putts when it mattered.”

By Israel Gutierrez McClatchy Newspapers

PHILADELPHIA — Did you really think games like this would just disappear? That games with point guard failures and questionable execution and late-game malfunctions would just stop happening because the playoffs were here, or because the Sixers were the opponent, or because they weren’t issues in the first three games of the postseason? The odds were too good that it would happen again. That Chris Bosh would be relegated to distant jumpers for a game and relatively inactive on the glass. That a brain freeze defensively would bite the Heat in a critical possession. That LeBron James would have the ball in his hands with a chance to save the game and not finish the deal. And it did. Sunday at the Wells Fargo Center, the Heat looked more like the team that played here Oct. 27 and less like the one that put on a clinic here just a few days earlier. Here’s the difference, though, when it happens during a playoff series in which the Heat leads: there are options on how to perceive the Game 4 loss. It could be viewed as a sign of things to come as the playoffs progress and teams get tougher and moments bigger. Or it could be looked at as an obstacle the size of a speed bump, because the playoffs allow for brief lapses as long as the overall numbers are in your favor. And as far as the Heat’s concerned, the team is still succeeding at a 75 percent clip, which would be more than good enough if it lasts for an entire postseason. But this is the Heat. Nothing is understated with this group. Nothing can be brushed aside or dismissed as an anomaly. Especially not when we have seen all of these elements several times in the regular season. Start at the end. With eight seconds left and the Heat trailing by two, there was LeBron with the ball in his hands in the clutch. It was the first time he really had that chance since early March, when he apologized for failing his team in those situations multiple times. But this result was the same. He drove past Andre Iguodala but couldn’t score. Elton Brand blocked his shot just like Amare Stoudemire did on a similar play Feb. 27. The questions there range from why can’t LeBron finally hit one of those shots to why isn’t Dwyane Wade taking it to begin with. And the truth is nobody has a really good answer for any of them. The preferred response Sunday was that it shouldn’t have come down to that play. That the failure in the final play was just a continuation of failures throughout the game that were the real reason the loss. Fine then. Change the question. Why did the Heat revert to poor execution now, when for three games it looked like the ball movement and floor balance had become second nature to this bunch? The best answer came from Bosh. And frankly, it wasn’t a comforting one for Heat fans to hear. “Sometimes you get a little tight,” Bosh said. “It is tougher to execute down the stretch. When the attention is focused on the last minute of the game, it’s tough to execute your offense. It’s easy to trust when you’re up 2-0, 3-0. “We’re gonna have to trust each other.” So in a game where the only pressure was to sweep, the team got tight and failed to execute? That can’t be an encouraging thought. If the Heat recovers in Game 5 and closes out the series Wednesday, this Game 4 failure won’t have a lingering effect. There won’t be persistent questions about whether Spoelstra trusts Mike Bibby and Zydrunas Ilgauskas (a combined one point in 24 minutes), or whether the Heat’s shortened rotation will mean trouble later. That’s the way the playoffs work. The Heat wasn’t going to rid itself of games like this just because the calendar says late April. How many more of these clunkers are left is the bigger question. For the time being, it’s safe to call it a minor inconvenience.

KU hoops fan says prized threads desecrated KANSAS CITY, MO. — A Missouri man who grew up in the Kansas City area and became a Kansas University basketball fan thought someday the T-shirt and shorts he wore for every game during the Jayhawks’ 2008 national championship season were destined for his man cave, not the police evidence room. That might still happen, but the clothes may not be in the best shape after a naked man barged into Jason Chambers’ former home last week and put them on. The Kansas City Star reports that a 45-yearold man bolted into Chambers’ Springfield, Mo., home after a university security guard spotted him walking through a neighborhood near Drury University. Chambers, who was in the process of moving out of the home, had left the clothes for a later trip so they wouldn’t get damaged in the move. Instead, the intruder put them on and hid in the house’s attic until officers sent a police dog up after him. The resulting encounter left the outfit somewhat tattered. “I didn’t have a whole lot left in the house,” said Chambers, 23, who graduated from Missouri State University last May. “He could have trashed the couch, whatever, but of course he had to put on my KU stuff.” The intruder has been charged with second-degree burglary and second-degree sexual misconduct. Chambers grew up as a Jayhawk fan after his older brother declared their home a “Kansas house.” At first he thought the story about the naked man was a joke, but when he found out it was real, he posted on his Facebook page that “A naked hobo destroyed my National Championship outfit.” Chambers said he’d like to have the clothing returned after the legal case runs its course and the items no longer are held as evidence. In the meantime, the Kansas athletic department decided to “show some love” for a Jayhawks fan in the heart of Mizzou country by mailing him a package last week. Associate KU athletics director Jim Marchiony, who reached out to Chambers after reading the initial report in the Springfield News-Leader, declined to say what was in the package but said it was sent after getting Chambers’ sizes. “He hung the clothes on the wall as a memento — you just got to love that, love that spirit,” Marchiony said. “We thought that for a rabid KU fan in the state of Missouri, we needed to show some love for him.” Chambers, who has moved back to the Kansas City suburb of Pleasant Hill, called the school’s gesture “awesome” and said he was eager to get the package. Still, he’s bummed out about the plight of his lucky outfit. “I wanted it to be in my man cave when I’m an adult, on my wall forever,” he said. “We’ll see what kind of shape it’s in when we get it back from evidence. As long as it’s not too nasty, I kind of want it back.”

Spurs’ McDyess expects to play MEMPHIS, TENN. — San Antonio center Antonio McDyess expects to play in Game 4 against the Memphis Grizzlies on Monday night despite a neck-nerve injury that forced him to leave Saturday night’s loss to the Memphis Grizzlies. Meanwhile, Spurs guard Manu Ginobili said he still is hindered a bit by an achy right elbow that caused him to miss Game 1 of the series that Memphis leads 2-1. Grizzlies guard Tony Allen isn’t so sure that Ginobili’s elbow is hurting. Allen says Ginobili is playing so well, he wonders if the injury is real.

MLB Greinke makes rehab start NASHVILLE, TENN. — Milwaukee pitcher Zach Greinke pitched 22⁄3 innings, giving up three hits and two runs with a walk and a two strikeouts in a rehab start Sunday at Triple-A Nashville. The right-hander started the season on the disabled list for his new team because of a broken rib. “In the first inning my control was a lot better than later on,” said Greinke, who got the first four batters he faced to groundout, then struck out two in the second inning. “The off-speed wasn’t great, but I was locating, and my fastball was crisp.

with the guarantee of playing Kentucky, Ohio State and USC,” KU coach Bill Self said Sunday. Ten of KU’s 13 nonconference foes advanced to the 2011 postseason. “Add to that the opportunity to play three of the biggest names in college basketball at the Maui Invitational. This will probably be as tough a nonconference schedule as we have played in a long time. “It’s a tough schedule, one that will give us a ton of exposure, and with the young team we will have playing for us next year, it will be a great challenge. We need to be preparing now for next year.” KU will open with exhibitions against Fort Hays State (Nov. 1) and Pittsburg State (Nov. 8). The Big 12 slate, to feature home-and-homes with every team in the league, will be released during the summer. ●

Recruiting: Jamari Traylor, a 6-7 power forward from IMG Academies in Bradenton, Fla., reportedly did not commit to KU on his weekend visit. Traylor, who visited Oklahoma State two weeks ago, has said he may visit Texas Tech. He also has visited Indiana and has had a list that includes St. John’s, Memphis, Tennessee and Mississippi State. ... Aaric Murray, a 6-10 sophomore from La Salle University, did not make a recruiting trip to KU over the weekend as originally planned. It is believed a visit likely will not be rescheduled. He has listed KU, West Virginia Oklahoma State, St. John’s, UConn, Rutgers, Marquette, Florida and DePaul in the past. He said on Twitter Sunday he will announce his transfer choice on May 7 ... KU signee Braeden Anderson, a 6-8 forward from Okotoks, Alberta, Canada, scored eight points off 4-of-6 shooting and grabbed four rebounds while playing 15 minutes in last weekend’s Derby Classic all-star game in Louisville.

Wearing a black wrap on his left hand and a small bandage over his right eye, Paul scored 14 of New Orleans’ 24 points in the fourth quarter. The AllStar guard then capped his brilliant performance by running down the clock and setting up Jarrett Jack’s short jumper, which made it 90-86 with 9.3 seconds left.

The Hawks will try to wrap up the best-of-seven series Tuesday night in Orlando.

with the mind-set that he was gonna put on a show.” Saunders, who played one season at O-North with current Jayhawk Kevin Young, said he talked to Young while being recruited by Kansas. “Kevin and I are real close,” Saunders said. “I sat down with him, and I asked him, ‘Kevin, what is the deal with your school?’ And he was like, ‘Adonis, this school is for you.’” Though he considers himself a football player first, Saunders said he might consider becoming a two-sport athlete in college. “I was talking to coach Gill about it, and he said if my grades are up, then the decision’s up to me,” Saunders said of the possibility of running track at KU. “I’m still kind of thinking about that.” More than anything, though, Saunders is thinking about football. Day and night, he dreams about putting on the KU uniform and helmet and making plays for the Jayhawks. Before then, he’ll happily finish his high school track career. As a sophomore, Saunders won state titles in the 100, 200 and 4x100 relay and was named the Kansas Gatorade Track Athlete of the Year. A hamstring injury last season prevented him from defend-

ing his titles and, with this year’s state meet just five weeks away, he has his mind set on going out in style. “I think he can go even Liberty Mutual Legends Sunday faster (than his times at the At Westin Savannah Harbor Golf Resort & Spa Kansas Relays),” Mpwo said.

them through Nathan on the football field, to him at KU Med, to him dying, to us going at 6 a.m. that morning to see his grandfather in the hospital, where he was having back surgery, and having to tell him his first grandson had died. Their bad day got better. I said, ‘What’s important? How are you going to handle a bad day?’” The Stiles have handled a “bad day” remarkably well, but that doesn’t mean they don’t still experience bad days. “It’s been quite a journey,” Ron said. “Getting to know Andrew’s been a good part of the journey.” Ron talked about how his son was thinking about not playing football his senior year and then decided to play. “Natalie and Nathan were extremely tight,” Ron said. “And Connie ... it’s been a struggle. Blessed are they that mourn, they’ll be comforted. And, boy, we need the comfort sometimes because there’s a lot of mourning. We sure miss him, but it’s created an opportunity to do some things.”

Halladay’s 14 Ks lead Philly The Associated Press

Phillies 3, Padres 1 SAN DIEGO — Roy Halladay tied his career high with 14 strikeouts, and Philadelphia beat San Diego on Sunday, coming within one out of its third shutout during a fourgame sweep. Halladay (3-1) took a twohitter into the ninth before allowing three singles, including Will Venable’s RBI base hit with two outs. Antonio Bastardo came on with runners on first and third and got pinch-hitter Nick Hundley to fly out to left on his first pitch, for his first save. Shane Victorino hit an inside-the-park home run leading off the seventh inning when his drive into the gap in right-center came off Venable’s glove as his arm hit the ground while trying to make a diving catch. The ball rolled into center as Victorino rounded the bases and came in with a headfirst slide.

have any STDs doesn’t mean it’s true. They might not even know. I am all for sex with a committed partner, but I think the casual sex shown on TV doesn’t send a responsible message, especially for younger people. I won’t have sex with anyone until I first see his STD report because I don’t plan on acquiring an incurable disease for the rest of my days. Be careful out there. — Nancy

Universal Crossword Edited by Timothy E. Parker April 25, 2011

Dear Annie: After reading a lot about STDs, I decided to get tested. Fortunately, everything is fine. I asked my doctor if it was odd for a senior citizen like me to get tested. He said, “I wish everyone would do it.” There are STDs that have no symptoms, and some are incurable. I read that HIV is showing up way too much in the senior community. I don’t plan on getting that or anything else. Just because someone says he or she doesn’t

“American Experience” (8 p.m., PBS, check local listings) presents “Stonewall Uprising,” a documentary history of summer nights in 1969 when a group of fed up gay men revolted against a system that consigned them to a shadow existence. Gathered in a popular Greenwich Village New York watering hole called the Stonewall, a crowd of gay customers were confronted with a police raid and, for the f irst time, simply fought back. The Stonewall was run by the Mafia, an organization well suited to serve a population consigned to illegal status by the prevailing legal and social norms. Until that time, it was common for police in New York and virtually every other city to arrest homosexuals for the simple act of assembling. Once arrested, gays were subject to dismissal from their jobs, public disgrace and blackmail. The practice of police entrapment and payoffs was prevalent. Much like prohibition, which had ended a half a century earlier, the official, if arbitrary, oppression of homosexuals provided ample opportunities for police corruption. Like many installments of “American Experience,” “Stonewall” includes period photographs and interviews with participants. But since period footage is so rare, much of the film involves dramatic reenactments, shot in black-and-white to evoke a moment of ferment and liberation. The resistance would last for days and nights and accomplish what some have considered the “Rosa Parks moment” of the gay civil rights movement. It’s significant to note that this “American Experience” airs in April and not June, when some public stations air gay-themed programming. It’s a way of stating that the Stonewall rebellion is about more than gay pride, it has become a central facet of American history. ● Mikey has a gala art opening and Junior consults with his lawyer as “American Chopper: Senior vs. Junior” (8 p.m., Discovery) opens a new season of bike building and legal bickering.

Tonight’s other highlights ● A nautical antique proves to be poisonous on “House” (7 p.m., Fox). ● Illness rocks the White House on “The Event” (8 p.m., NBC). ● A bomber may have radical ties on “The Chicago Code” (8 p.m., Fox). ● McGarrett’s sister is taken hostage on “Hawaii Five-O” (9 p.m., CBS). ● A corpse is discovered in a car with no driver on “Law & Order: Los Angeles” (9 p.m., NBC). ● A disguise involves kissing on “Castle” (9 p.m., ABC). Cult choice Memorials for Hollywood legend Elizabeth Taylor have recalled her great films. Tonight viewers get a chance to watch “The Blue Bird” (7 p.m., Fox Movie Channel), a true film oddity. A unique American-Soviet co-production directed (most agree badly) by George Cukor, it stars Taylor as the fairy tale Blue Bird of Happiness. Jane Fonda and Ava Gardner also star.

JACQUELINE BIGAR’S STARS For Monday, April 25: This year, you see life and its opportunities in a much brighter light than in the recent past. You will need to take the lead on making these possibilities a reality. If you are single, doors open as they haven't before. If you are attached, the two of you tend to work better as a team. Aquarius can test your limits! The Stars Show the Kind of Day You'll Have: 5Dynamic; 4-Positive; 3Average; 2-So-so; 1-Difficult Aries (March 21-April 19) ★★★★★ Listen to news that streams in from many different sources and people. Play devil's advocate, yet at the same time put together the pieces of the puzzle. Tonight: Ask, and you shall receive! Taurus (April 20-May 20) ★★★ You might wonder what force is driving you. Be aware that options you feel should be available might not appear. Tonight: Clear out frustration. Gemini (May 21-June 20) ★★★★★ When facing a predicament, you might wonder what to do. Conventional solutions need to be tested before accepting an offbeat idea. Tonight:

Touch base with someone at a distance. Cancer (June 21-July 22) ★★★★ Deal directly with another person. Evaluate what is going on with a child. Tonight: Don't back off from a key discussion. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) ★★★★ Keep thinking about the collective rather than the individual. Success will come with this mental slant, driving your decisions. Tonight: You don't act like it's Monday. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) ★★★★ Investigate opportunities that might surround your daily life. Whether they are organizational, health-related or work-driven makes no difference; you need change. Tonight: Don't forget to take a walk or squeeze in some exercise. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) ★★★ Your imagination comes out no matter what you are dealing with. Many people enjoy your sense of humor. Tonight: Doing your thing. Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) ★★★ Passion runs high no matter what you take on. You cruise through a project with ease, leaving others light-years behind. Tonight: Put your feet up. Sagittarius (Nov. 22Dec. 21) ★★★★★ Your

creativity and imagination merge, allowing you to tackle nearly any issue. The caveat here is that you might not want to be constructive. Tonight: Let the good times in. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) ★★★ You might want to reconsider your options, especially those that affect a personal matter involving needs and self-expression. Tonight: Check out other avenues. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) ★★★★★ You beam wherever you go. For those who go to work, your upbeat brilliance could have your co-workers closing down, as they feel comfortable being somewhat dull or quiet for the moment. Tonight: The world is your oyster. Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) ★★★ Listen to your inner voice when dealing with various concerns involving money. Still, if that inner dialogue says to play the lottery, don't cause yourself any damage. Tonight: Tune in to your needs.

Dear Annie: My wife and I have been together for 12 years. For most of that time, it seems we have been following my preferences in terms of jobs, living arrangements, etc. I have an office job, and she stays home with our three kids. We also live in the small town she grew up in and run a farm with her father on the side. Apparently, I have inadvertently made her feel very much in my shadow, even with her family and friends. I am more vocal and like to get involved in what’s going on. My wife thinks I try too hard to please people and accuses me of being a “yes man.” I adore my wife and feel terrible that this situation has snowballed into her hating me for making her feel like my accessory. I appreciate her as my partner, but often feel like I’m in a position to “make the call.” Annie, I want her to feel as special as she is — charming, welcoming, the best mother I could want for my kids and a supportive wife. How can I boost her up and make her the limelight around other people? How can I get her to feel as important as she really is? — Love My Wife
