Unraveling a rape case By Shaun Hittle
y no choice of his own, Joe Jones’ life has been intertwined with Joel Russell’s for nearly three decades. Both went to Topeka High School. They missed each other in school by a few years, but Jones’ younger sister was at Topeka High the same time as Russell. The two lived less than a mile apart in Topeka, spent time together at Shawnee County Jail, ran across each other in prison, and it’s even possible they crossed paths on the evening of Aug. 24, 1985. While Jones walked through downtown Topeka that night, police say Russell was lurking with a knife, looking for a victim. Please see RAPE CASE, page 6A

The Lawrence Police Department has a space problem — everything from lockers to interview rooms — and now a new City Hall report estimates the fix will be about $30 million. “So often, the things we need to do our job are just not readily accessible,” said Lawrence Police Chief Tarik Khatib. City commissioners at a Tuesday afternoon study session will receive a report from a city-hired Khatib consulting group that spells out the space needs of the Police Department for the next 20 years. The report recommends a new 40,000 to 50,000 square foot police headquarters building with a price tag of about $28 million to $29 million. The report doesn’t yet recommend a site for the facility, nor does it spell out a funding plan for the project. That will be up to city commissioners as they embark on the 2013 budget process. “We don’t have this money in any budget,” said City Please see POLICE, page 2A

Sen. Tom Holland of Baldwin City, the ranking Democrat on the Senate tax committee, criticized the plan, saying, “This is a tax plan for Koch Industries.” Republican leaders in the Senate said any taxcutting proposal must be considered against the state’s long-term funding needs. “In my view, we need to look at what the longterm outlook is,” said Senate President Steve Morris, R-Hugoton. “It’s too early to make any pre-

A long talked-about interchange at Bob Billings Parkway and the South Lawrence Trafficway may be under construction by 2014, if city and county commissioners can find an extra $2 million in their future budgets. A Kansas Department of Transportation spokesman confirmed the state has found a way to include funding for the
$17 million interchange in its comprehensive transportation plan, if local leaders can provide about $2 million in local funding for the project. The interchange has been on the drawing board ever since the western leg of the trafficway was completed years ago. But funding for the project has been difficult to find. KDOT last year studied the idea of making the South Lawrence Trafficway a toll road to
help pay for the intersection. The department scrapped that idea several months ago, and said at the time it wasn’t sure how it would be able to fund the project. KDOT spokesman Josh Powers said the department decided to add it to the department’s highly competitive T-Works comprehensive transportation plan because the opportunity to build the interchange at the same Please see SLT, page 2A
diction on taxes.” Morris noted the state is committed to increased funding in many areas, such as the public pension system. Those commitments must be balanced against proposed tax cuts, he said. The complexity of the package, which was produced by the tax conference committee, was daunting to some. Senate Majority Leader Jay Emler, R-McPherson, said he expected it would take a while for legislators to understand what is in
the measure. A vote in the Senate on the plan is likely the week after next. Both Democratic and Republican legislators said the size of the tax plan may be more than the $2.9 billion over six years that the Kansas Department of Revenue had figured. More calculations were expected to be made over the next several days. The proposal would cut individual income tax rates and phase out Please see TAX, page 2A

time construction work is underway on the eastern leg of the South Lawrence Trafficway was too good to pass up. “It represents a chance to save us money, if we can do both projects at once,” Powers said. Construction of the eastern leg of the SLT project is being challenged in the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals. A ruling in the case is expected later this year, but Powers said KDOT is taking steps to begin construction by late 2013, provided the state is victorious in the lawsuit. City officials said they were pleased about the sudden reversal in fortunes for the interchange project. “We need another a connection point on the trafficway to facilitate commuters and people who just want to get to the south part of town,” City Commissioner Mike Dever said. “In the long run, it really will take pressure off the Sixth and

income taxes over five years for 191,000 partnerships, sole proprietorships and other businesses. Brownback proposed those measures and has repeatedly emphasized his support of the business tax cut, likening it to a shot of adrenaline to the heart. “It’s got the key progrowth features that I think are important,” Brownback said. “Gets the tax off of small business and lowers the overall rates,” he said. The legislation also would maintain current law by reducing the state’s sales tax to 5.7 percent in July 2013 from 6.3 percent. It would also provide $180 million over four years in state aid to cities and counties to provide property tax relief. Democrats said it was impossible to determine how much tax revenue the state would lose because of the business tax cut. Supporters of the business tax cut have said it is directed at small businesses, but tax studies have shown many large corporations would benefit by it and many businesses would likely reorganize to take advantage of the proposal. Democrats also said the package would hit the poor the hardest. It would eliminate the homestead exemption for renters, restrict low-income fami-

Bob Billings Parkway turns into 15th Street east of Iowa and runs into the heart of the KU campus. KDOT leaders will brief city commissioners on the project at commissioners’ Tuesday evening meeting, but won’t ask the city to make a formal funding commitment. Commissioners are expected to discuss the funding request as part of the 2013 budget process, which will take place this summer. “We will have to do some real shuffling around of budgeted expenditures, but I think it is possible,” Dever said of coming up with the city’s share of the funding. Powers said the state hopes to be able to begin discussions about possible land acquisition for the interchange late this year. — City reporter Chad Lawhorn can be reached at 832-6362.

lies to receiving either the Earned Income Tax Credit or food sales tax rebate, but not both, and toss out the child care tax credit. Under the plan that was agreed to by Republican members of the tax conference committee, taxpayers earning less than $30,000 per year would pay 3 percent in state income tax; while those earning more would pay 4.9 percent. The state’s current top rate is 6.45 percent. Now that tax revenues are increasing and the state is seeing a budget surplus, Democrats say it is time to increase the pay of state employees, who have not had a raise in several years, restore cuts to schools and reduce waiting lists for services for those with disabilities. But if the proposed tax cut package were approved, Davis said, “There is no hope for any of those folks that are looking to state government to provide what I think people expect of their state government.” Supporters of the tax cut, including Brownback, have said it will help Kansans by increasing jobs and boosting the economy. Brownback said he didn’t fear the revenue loss would hurt state government. “The numbers look doable,” Brownback said. He said that he and the Legislature must “continue to be aggressive in holding our costs down.”

New community tourism leader named By Chad Lawhorn email@example.com
A former fundraiser with the Kansas University Endowment Association has been named as the next leader of the community’s tourism industry. Fred Conboy was announced Friday as the next president and CEO of Destination Management Inc., the nonprofit group that oversees the management of the Lawrence Convention and Visitors Bureau and the Freedom’s Frontier National Heritage Area. Conboy, a Lawrence native, said he’s thrilled to be in a job where he can promote the important role the Kansas and Missouri border region played in nation’s history. “I think first and fore-
most the Freedom’s Frontier National Heritage Area is going to bring a lot of pride to our part of the country,” Conboy said about the organization that encompasses 41 counties in eastern Kansas and western Missouri. “I’ve always had a very strong passion about our area’s history.” Conboy, 56, currently serves as the executive director of development for the University of California-Irvine. He previously worked in fundraising capacities for the Kansas University Endowment Association from 1982 through 1998. In his new job, Conboy also will be responsible for overseeing the Lawrence Convention and Visitors Bureau, and he said talk of a public-private partnership to build a

TOPEKA — Many Kansas representatives showcase a cutout mascot of their favorite Kansas teams on their chamber desks. Jayhawks. Wildcats. A few Shockers, too. Despite their respective allegiances, they all gave the Kansas University men’s and women’s basketball teams a standing ovation Friday. Carolyn Davis, Angel Goodrich, Charlicia Harper and Tania Jackson represented the women’s team, and Jordan Juenemann, Travis Releford, Conner Teahan and Jeff Withey represented the men during a visit to the Capitol. Sheahon Zenger,
Kansas athletic director, and Nicole Corcoran, director of operations for Kansas Athletics, also attended. The players’ first stop was the Senate chambers, where Sen. Marci Francisco, D-Lawrence, read a resolution congratulating both teams’ achievements. “Although I will say many of us got nervous on more than one occasion, there was never a time that our Jayhawk basketball players didn’t make us proud,” Francisco said. Sen. Bob Marshall, RFort Scott, praised both teams and commended the women on their Sweet 16 appearance, the team’s deepest run since 1998. Marshall commended the men, too. “Under Coach Self,
they have won or shared more Big 12 titles than they’ve lost home games at Allen Fieldhouse,” Marshall said. “That’s incredible.” Their next stop was the House of Representatives, which passed a similar resolution in their honor. As the players walked through the Statehouse to meet with Gov. Sam Brownback, they passed a large group of school children cheering in support. Teahan took a second to shake a few hands. Brownback, who attended the final three Jayhawk games of this year’s NCAA Tournament, told both teams they had fabulous seasons. “Wonderful to watch and great representing your state,” Brownback said.

Stephanie Thomas let out a sign of joy Friday morning when she opened the doors to a greenhouse on the Spring Creek Farm she and Tom Maiorana own south of Baldwin City. It was both a response to the warmth
built in the greenhouse on the chilly but sunny morning as it washed across her and to the robust health of the peas it contained. “We got skunked on peas last year,” she said. “I didn’t want that to happen again, so we grew some in the greenhouse this year. This year is going to be an
awesome year for peas.” That’s good news for the community supported agricultural members who will get weekly fresh produce grown on Spring Creek Farm’s 20 acres and in its four greenhouses. Sugar snap peas will be among the early produce the members will get with root crops such
as beets, radishes and turnips. In blue jeans, T-shirt, hiking shoes and cap, Thomas was dressed far different than she was a little more than half a decade ago when she worked in corporate sales. But her interest in fresh, natural food Please see FARMER, page 5A
TOPEKA — Top Kansas officials expressed confidence Friday that the federal government will allow the state to overhaul its Medicaid program, but critics questioned moving ahead before securing permission. Gov. Sam Brownback’s administration has formally applied for a waiver of federal Medicaid regulations that would impede efforts to redesign the state’s $2.9 billion-a-year program, which covers health care for the poor, needy and disabled. The application was submitted Thursday to the federal Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services — a day before other, new rules changed how such requests are handled. The conservative Republican governor plans to turn Medicaid over to three private, managed-care companies, starting Jan. 1, 2013. The administration expects to issue contracts this summer, though it has promised to delay including long-term Please see MEDICAID, page 5A
Kansas Board of Regents needs new structure By Dolph C. Simons Jr.
Unfortunately, the Kansas Board of Regents system fails to measure up to today’s challenges. Changes are needed. The Board of Regents oversees six public universities: Kansas University, Kansas State, Wichita State, Emporia State, Fort Hays State and Pittsburg State, including the KU School of Medicine and the KSU School of Veterinary Medicine, plus partial oversight of Washburn University. In addition, the regents are charged with providing oversight and coordination for the state’s 19 community colleges: Allen County, Barton County, Butler Community, Cloud County, Coffeyville Community, Colby Community, Cowley, Dodge City Community, Fort Scott Community, Garden City Community, Highland Commu-
nity, Hutchinson Community, Independence Community, Johnson County Community, Kansas City Kansas Community, Labette Community, Neosho County Community, Pratt Community and Seward County Community. The regents also have a role in the state’s technical colleges: Flint Hills, Manhattan Area, North Central Kansas, Northwest Kansas, Salina Area and Wichita Area. The governor appoints nine individuals to serve as regents. They volunteer; it is a part-time job, but they receive no pay. The 32 schools are scattered throughout the state and vary in size from about 30,000 students to about 700 students at some of the technical schools. A 2011 study reports that 2010 enrollment at the 32 schools totaled 180,188 with 48,962 graduates in 2009. Regents funding
for fiscal year 2011 was $2.424 billion. Broken down, $751.345 million came from the state general fund, $539.7 million from tuition and $1.144 billion from other funds.
COMMENTARY The 2010 estimated population of Kansas was 2,738,830. Counties with regents universities had a total population of 931,177, while counties with community colleges or technical schools had a total population of 1,194,971. That leaves 675,934 Kansans living in counties without a Board of Regents institution. The state’s higher education system is a huge business with a huge economic impact on the state. It cannot be overstated!

Aside from the economic facts, between 180,000 and 200,000 students are attending these schools, and the quality of education they receive should be of equally huge interest and concern. Try as they may (and at times this is questionable), there is no way the regents can know what is going on at all of these schools. It is nice to be a regent. It is one of the state’s most prestigious positions. Regents are invited to sit in the KU chancellor’s suite at football games and at center court for basketball games. It is an ego-building position. Granted, board members are assisted by a fine staff in Topeka, but no matter how they may argue the point, the inept manner in which the regents handled four specific situations at KU offers excellent proof
they were unaware of the situations, left them to the chancellor to handle or didn’t have the backbone to act. The four situations were: the departure of Chancellor Robert Hemenway, the athletics department ticket mess, the business school mess and the medical school mess. There may have been more that were covered up. What about other “messes” at the other 31 institutions under the regents umbrella? The Kansas regents system needs to be brought up to date. Times are changing, and academia needs to change with the times. Many in education are uncomfortable with change, but, if Kansas is to keep pace with its peer institutions or, better yet, be a leader, changes are needed.

a tough, demanding and tiring job. Better to leave early than stay too late is sound advice. What about an eight- or nine-year term with the provision that extensions can be granted to those doing a superior job? For example, Fort Hays State President Ed Hammond has served in that post for 25 years and is doing a superior job. He has more new ideas, enthusiasm and energy than others who have served far fewer years.
Regents should be proactive rather than reactive.
Regents should play a much more powerful and demanding role in challenging the chancellor and presidents to figure out ways to hold down tuition costs. The cost of going to college and the debt facing students upon graduation now is becoming a hot political topic. It should have been a concern long ago. Too often, the response from university officials or regents about everescalating tuition rates is something like, “We are trying hard to hold down costs, but we want parents, students and others interested in our school to know our tuition costs
are comparable to those of our peer institutions.” That’s supposed to appease the critics. Why not have KU’s goal be to provide a superior educational opportunity at a low, low price. Cut out many of the extras and put that money into superior faculty who, in turn, will attract superior students all at a lower cost. Unfortunately, the game of attracting students to come to a university for an education is becoming similar to the game of attracting superior athletes. It’s called, keeping up with the Joneses. Is it possible to have a university that sells itself for its academic excellence, a terrific faculty and provide this opportunity at a lower price?
Higher education is too big, too costly, affects too many lives and is too important for the state not to have a system of governance that gets the maximum bang out of every tax dollar. Those serving as regents face a massive challenge, as well as a massive opportunity, to make Kansas’ system of higher education a leader and a model for the rest of the country. But today’s Board of Regents must be reconfigured to deal with the changing times and the complexities of a major research university, as well as community colleges and technical schools. The current board structure cannot get the job done.
Man gets year in prison for firearms conviction A federal judge sentenced a 22-year-old Wichita man, who has been convicted in a 2010 Lawrence robbery, to serve 12 months and one day in federal prison for a separate firearms conviction. U.S. District Judge Eric Melgren also ordered D’Andre Tomlin on Friday to serve two years on supervised release after his prison term, said Jim Cross, a spokesman for U.S. Attorney Barry Grissom. Tomlin in February pleaded guilty to unlawful possession of a firearm after having a felony conviction, and admitted in September — three days after his guilty plea in the
ON THE RECORD
Douglas County case — he possessed a Heckler & Koch 9mm pistol, which he sold to an undercover officer. According to Grissom’s office, Tomlin was among 67 people arrested on state and federal charges as part of an 11-month sting operation conducted by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. In the Douglas County case, Tomlin had pleaded guilty to three counts of attempted aggravated robbery for his involvement in a Dec. 2, 2010, robbery of three female Kansas University students at an apartment in the 1100 block of Louisiana Street. Tomlin has not yet re-
LAW ENFORCEMENT REPORT • Lawrence police arrested a 36-year-old Lawrence man Thursday night after a chase with officers in southeastern Lawrence, said Sgt. Trent McKinley, a police spokesman. An employee of Taco John’s, 2309 Haskell Ave., called police around 9:30 p.m. because the employee had observed a man ducking down inside a blue Toyota pickup truck, and the worker was concerned the restaurant was about to be robbed, McKinley said. The man later fled on foot, and officers and a Kansas Highway Patrol trooper caught him a short time later in the area. Police discovered the man was inside a 1994 Toyota truck reported stolen at 3:50 a.m. Thursday from the 900 block of East 28th Street. Officers were examining property inside the vehicle because they believed it possibly was from another burglary, McKinley said. The man, Geoffry S. Beers, was booked into jail on charges of theft and obstruction. Prosecutors Friday charged him only with theft, and a judge set his bond at $1,500. According to the Kansas Department of Corrections, Beers is on parole for a March 2007 Douglas County robbery conviction. • Lawrence police ticketed a 33-year-old Lawrence man Friday after he was accused of kicking a puppy April 6 in the 1600 block of University Drive. Sgt. Ted Bordman, a patrol supervisor, said a 72-yearold Lawrence woman at 7:30 a.m. April 6 was walking her son’s 19-week-old lab mix puppy on a leash on the sidewalk south of the street. She alleged the suspect was walking toward her and then kicked and stomped on the dog, telling her to “keep the dog away from me” before he continued walking east. She told her son what happened but didn’t call police at the time. A veterinarian examined the puppy, which had bruises but no

regents from nine to seven would bring more focus to the board. The larger the board, whether the regents or a search committee, the less the focus.
The regents need to know what is going on at the various campuses. Recent events demonstrate they do not know. It would be good if individual bodies could be formed to serve as the eyes and ears of each institution. Those on such committees would have no power other than to keep regents informed about what is happening at the six regents universities, the KU School of Medicine and KSU’s School of Veterinary Medicine.
How about giving serious consideration to a separate board of regents for KU or possibly a board for just KU and KSU and maybe Wichita? Each school in the regents system fills a specific need and has specific missions. Would a separate board for KU, or possibly the other two schools, allow more focus on the needs, roles and mission of these schools?

serious injuries, Bordman said. On Wednesday morning the woman encountered the man again when she was walking the dog in the same area. Bordman said the woman alleged that when she questioned him, the man said he would kick the dog again, exchanged vulgarities toward her and walked away. She called police after that incident, and a plainclothes officer walked with the woman in the area. She identified the man, and the officer and another uniformed officer made contact with the suspect in the 1500 block of University Drive. Bordman said police gave the man notice to appear in municipal court on an animal cruelty charge for the April 6 allegation and disorderly conduct for Wednesday’s alleged incident. • A 28-year-old Ottawa woman reported her 1999 Mazda stolen from the 1400 block of Seventh Street on Wednesday, according to police reports. She valued the car at $2,000.
INJURY ACCIDENTS • A 52-year-old Holton woman was injured Thursday night in a one-vehicle crash in Leavenworth County near Lansing, according to the Kansas Highway Patrol. Denise M. Cornelius at 9:25 p.m. was driving east on Eisenhower Road and missed a stop sign at Tonganoxie Drive. The 1987 Honda Accord she was driving then rolled into a ditch, according to the accident report. Cornelius, who was wearing a seat belt, was taken to Kansas University Hospital in Kansas City, Kan. The Journal-World does not print accounts of all police reports filed. The newspaper generally reports: • Burglaries, only with a loss of $1,000 or more, unless there are unusual circumstances. To protect victims, we generally don’t identify them by name. • The names and circumstances of people arrested, only after they are charged. • Assaults and batteries, only if major injuries are reported. • Holdups and robberies.

predates any career and traces back to her youth when she followed her Air Force officer father to Germany, Italy, England, Pakistan and India. “Most of those places, we went to market a couple times a week,” Thomas said. “Fresh food was really fresh food. They brought it out that morning.” When she returned to the United States as young adult in the late 1970s, she found a much different food culture dominated by supermarkets. To compensate, Thomas gardened and canned for her and her family’s use while making her livelihood as a salesperson for Dolly Madison and later Nutrisystem. “I got them fat, and then I got them thin,” Thomas said. She also became more aware of the shortcomings in the American diet and the lack of availability of wholesome, fresh food that sustained health, Thomas said. As she continued to work at various sales positions, she began to think of how she could help address that need on the 20 acres she had owned since 2001. “I finally decided what I wanted to do was have a commercial garden,” she said. “I decided I really didn’t want to mow 20 acres. What else were we going to do with it?”
Growing Growers Although Maiorana said he never forgot the farming skills he learned growing up on a small Maryland farm, Thomas needed mentoring to
CSA members get the cream of the crop. I fill CSA bags before I ever go to market. That’s the payback because without the CSA money, I would be strapped for cash.” — Stephanie Thomas make the transition from sales to soil. She turned to the Kansas City Growing Growers Program. “It allows people who wanting to learn how to farm to work one-on-one with farmers,” Thomas said “I was an apprentice in 2005, and I started my farm the next year. We’re now a host farm for the apprentice program.” Thomas spent her apprentice year on the farm of Katherine Kelly, now the executive director of the Kansas City Center of Urban Agriculture. Like Kelly, Thomas would use organic guidelines to grow produce on her farm.
All-natural methods Although it can’t be called organic because the farm lacks USDA organic certification, no chemical fertilizers, herbicides, pesticides or treated seeds are used on Spring Creek Farm. Instead, Maiorana and Thomas enrich soil with two-year-old compost or through planting crops such as Austria peas to stimulate the soil’s nitrogen. They rotate and sequentially plant a variety of crops to keep pests at bay. “People ask me how do we deal with squash bugs,” Thomas said. “The best thing you can do is plant squash three different

times. It’s a lot more labor intensive, but the payback is your not injecting your body with chemicals.”
CSA When apprenticing with Kelly, Thomas became acquainted with the community supported agriculture concept by helping pack the weekly deliveries from that farm. Still, Thomas didn’t start directly marketing her own produce in that manner until her second year. The farm’s first year, 2006, she took produce to the Baldwin City and Lawrence farmers markets and started building her client list that now includes Baker University and the Merc Community Market, Local Burger and WheatFields in Lawrence. “We don’t do as many restaurants any more,” she said. “Probably more than anything, we sell to Baker and the Merc. They buy in bulk; it just makes more sense.” The community supported agriculture effort started because of the operating cash its upfront payments provided the farm, Thomas said. “I realized in 2007 I had no cash,” she said. “The year before, I saved four months of paychecks to get started. By operating CSA, the money they pay me upfront goes for seeds, equipment and labor. It’s cash before I ever go to market. “CSA members get the cream of the crop. I fill CSA bags before I ever go to market. That’s the payback because without the CSA money, I would be strapped for cash.” A limit number of memberships are still available for this year.

services for the developmentally disabled in the overhaul until Jan. 1, 2014.
Making changes The federal government must approve some changes because it provides a majority of the funds for states’ Medicaid programs. Kansas is asking the federal government to waive multiple rules, and Brownback’s administration plans to submit a proposal later for a “global” waiver to give it even greater flexibility. Lt. Gov. Jeff Colyer, a surgeon who led the team that developed the Medicaid overhaul plan, said Kansas is asking the federal government to waive rules that have been suspended in the past for other states. Administration officials also said they’ve had productive conversations with federal officials since late January, when Kansas notified the federal Medicaid oversight agency of its plans by submitting a concept paper on the overhaul. “We think that we should get approval,” Colyer said during a Statehouse news conference. “We are using standard tools that have been approved before.” The administration argues that overhauled Medicaid program — to be called KanCare — will better coordinate care for participants, improving their long-term health. The administration also projects the overhaul will reduce the state’s costs. Alper Ozinal, a spokesman for the federal centers, said it is in the “ear-
ly stages” of its review. There’s no formal timetable for making a decision, though state officials released a schedule anticipating federal approval of its three contracts in August. “We will work to review the application as expeditiously as possible,” Ozinal said an email to The Associated Press.
Delaying the overhaul? Some lawmakers have suggested delaying the overhaul, fearing that changes are coming too quickly. House Minority Leader Paul Davis, a Lawrence Democrat, said it’s “perplexing” that the administration didn’t hold off until the federal government was closer to approving a waiver. “I think we have to make sure that we don’t go down the road and commit resources if we don’t know if the federal government will approve our waiver application,” he said. The federal oversight agency for Medicaid is part of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, and its secretary, Kathleen Sebelius, is a Democrat who previously served as Kansas governor. New rules for waiver applications took effect Friday, mandated by the
federal health care overhaul in 2010. Among other things, they require a state to have public hearings before submitting an application to the federal government. Administration officials noted that Brownback’s team began working on overhauling Medicaid shortly after he took office in January 2011 and had meetings around the state to solicit public comments. Town hall meetings on Medicaid are planned for July. As for the timing of the state’s formal application, Colyer said, “This is just when we got everything moving.” Most of the 387,000 Kansans receiving state medical assistance are covered by managed care through private contractors, but the Medicaid overhaul represents the first time the state has tried to include relatively expensive, long-term care for the disabled and the elderly, including those in nursing homes. Advocates for the developmentally disabled have been vocal critics of the overhaul. Their concerns led Brownback this week to endorse a proposal to wait a year to deal with long-term services for the developmentally disabled in the contracts, while permitting pilot programs.

Instead, it’d be Jones, erroneously picked out by witnesses to the crime, who’d be convicted and spend nearly seven years in prison for kidnapping and rape before DNA evidence exonerated him in 1992. Until recently, Jones had only a strong opinion as to who committed the crimes of which he was wrongly convicted. Last week, the Topeka Police Department announced that retested DNA evidence identified Russell as a suspect in the rape. Russell was served an arrest warrant in prison on a single charge of rape. “He must’ve felt, for just a minute, a little like I did ... when they gave him the news,” Jones said. “But not quite.” Between 1984 and December 1985, Joel Lee Russell went from a standout Topeka High athlete to a serial criminal, leaving a trail of victims. Science appears to have caught up with Russell, but it’s possible the legal system never will.
‘Seemed like a nice kid’ In 1983, Russell was a senior wide receiver on the Topeka High football team. “He was a heck of an athlete,” said retired Topeka High coach Angelo Cocolis. “He was fast. He could run like heck.” But other than that, nothing stands out, Cocolis said. “Seemed like a nice kid,” he said. “Never knew him to be a violent kid.” Russell was awarded a football scholarship to Dodge City Community College and played for the 1984 team. Jerry Cullen, Dodge City head coach from 1979 to 1989, remembers Russell as a “good kid.” “He gave his very best. Worked hard,” Cullen said. “One of those kids you wanted on a team.” Nothing in the hundreds of pages of court documents from Russell’s crimes mention any criminal behavior before his spree in downtown Topeka in fall 1985. Russell later was convicted of various crimes related to three incidents in Topeka between Nov. 18 and Dec. 7, 1985. In all three cases, Russell used a knife to force his way into a woman’s car. All of the victims were able to fight off Russell, and none sustained major injuries. Russell pleaded guilty to several offenses from the November and December incidents, including kidnapping and assault. He was sentenced to 30 years to life, but became eligible for parole in 1990 after serving a fraction of his sentence. Jones, meanwhile, was sitting in Shawnee County Jail awaiting trial for a kidnapping and rape that occurred on Aug. 24, 1985. In that crime, the assailant — using a knife — forced his way into a woman’s car in downtown Topeka, made her drive less than a mile away, and raped her. The victim was kidnapped in front of Bare Essentials nightclub, 916 Kansas Ave., the same location as one of Russell’s assaults. The rape occurred on a deserted road between Washington and Chandler streets, a few blocks from where Russell
STATE lived at the time. The similarities of the four crimes didn’t go unnoticed by Jones or his defense team. When Jones heard about Russell’s crime while in jail, he thought it’d be enough to garner his release. Pictures of Jones and Russell from the time don’t show a strong resemblance. Both are black men. But Jones has a darker complexion and is four years older than the muscular Russell. But in the rape case, there were the confident witnesses: the victim and her two friends — all white women — who had seen the abduction. A day after the rape, the two friends saw Jones on Kansas Avenue, identified him as the rapist and called police. Topeka resident Ed Rotz, who was on the jury in Jones’ 1985 trial, said the eyewitness testimony was “powerful.” “It was pretty compelling,” Rotz said. The jury deliberation was easy and quick, Rotz remembers. Convicted and sentenced to life in prison, Jones ran into Russell shortly after trial in a Kansas prison. “I was sick,” Jones said of seeing Russell. “It turned my stomach.” They never spoke, and Jones rattles off questions he’s dwelled on for years. “It’s pretty hard to grasp that he knew someone else was doing that time,” Jones said.
Can they prosecute? Though the Shawnee County District Attorney’s Office charged Russell with rape, there remain questions about whether he could go to trial. The statute of limitations on rape — five years — has long passed on Russell, but a 2001 Kansas law allows for an additional year to prosecute cases once DNA has identified a suspect. Under that law, prosecutors would have until early 2013 to charge Russell. But there could be a catch, said Washburn University law professor John Francis. The law can’t be applied retroactively in cases prior to 2001 in which the statute of limitations had already expired. Francis cited a 2007 Kansas Supreme Court case — State vs. Garcia — which resolved that issue. Because the crime occurred in 1985, the statute of limitations would have run out by 1990. However, Francis noted the law provides for “tolling,” or pausing, of the statute of limitations under several circumstances. One such circumstance occurs when someone leaves the state. That was the case in Kansas’ only other DNA exoneration case. In that case, Eddie Lowery spent 10 years in prison for the 1981 rape of a Riley County woman, but was exonerated in 2003. The DNA profile was entered in CODIS, the national DNA databank, and produced a hit on Daniel Brewer, who had moved to New York shortly after the crimes. Brewer was successfully prosecuted last year because he hadn’t been in Kansas for more than five years during that time span. Lee McGowan, spokesman for the Shawnee County District Attorney’s Office, however, says officials in his office

believe they can prosecute Russell. “It’s something that we talked about before the case,” McGowan said. The defense will probably fight the charges based on the expiration of the statute of limitations, and that will be something decided by the courts, McGowan said. But even if Russell can’t be prosecuted, he could still spend the rest of his life behind bars. Russell was paroled in 1990, but just two weeks before Jones was exonerated and released from prison in July 1992, Russell was arrested and charged with the rapes of a 13-yearold and a 14-year-old in Reno County. Russell was convicted and sentenced to 35 years to life in prison. He’s eligible for a parole hearing in June. Though he couldn’t comment on any particular case, David Riggin, head of the Kansas Prison Review Board, said evidence of past crimes — even if someone wasn’t prosecuted — could be considered along with numerous other factors in a parole decision.

larities to Jones’ case, as Thompson-Cannino’s cross-racial identification spurred Cotton’s conviction. Cotton also ran into Bobby Poole, a serial rapist later identified by DNA as the attacker, when the two were incarcerated in a North Carolina prison. Thompson-Cannino said she initially feared Cotton would want to harm her for her mistake. Cotton, however, forgave
Thompson-Cannino, and the reconciliation between the two led to a friendship. The two have travelled the country together speaking about the causes of wrongful convictions.
Forgiveness Jones said he also long ago forgave the woman who picked him as her rapist so many years ago. It’s all part of a much larger healing process,
said Jones, as he mentions the depression and anxiety that have plagued him since his conviction. Three years sober, Jones said he’s given up the life of petty crime he began after his release from prison. He works as a handy man in Topeka and lives in a small, rent-subsidized apartment.

Victim shares her side of the story Editor’s note: The victim in the wrongful conviction case of Joe Jones has been in contact with the Journal-World since October. She has expressed gratitude for the articles about the case, and their role in reopening the case, leading to a DNA profile match.

I believe when you open up people’s lives like this there should be more of a balance and a compassion for both sides and relate the hell that both sides have gone through.

Shaun either. We did not know Hittle knows better than that there was a guy out that but it never made it there that some thought to print. These articles looked enough like Joe
Jones to be his brother. After 1992, I thought my witness and I must be crazy, and no one was going to pay for what was done. No one was trying to make me feel better or offer any hope for closure. No one at the police department or D.A.’s office said they could keep looking. No one there was looking to solve an unsolved crime. No one there now, was even around back when this happened. Nothing happened till Shaun Hittle contacted them. When the databank became available my rape kit was not run through for a match. It was even said that these issues are not pursued usually unless the victim pursues the matter. What was I going to pursue? When these things were brought to light, I realized that we truly had made a very large mistake. Not just us, but some on the judicial side as well. I wrote Joe Jones at Christmas and told him I was very sorry he spent those years in prison and told him I had to admit that I was wrong. That we both were wronged and both had been through years of hell over this. I do, however, want it understood that I do not accept any guilt or blame for the hard times that Joe Jones has gone through since his release. He made his own choices and had $350,000 to do it with. I too could have, and did make a few bad choices after being kidnapped at knifepoint and raped out in the middle of nowhere for hours, thinking I was going to
be murdered. I have not though let it rule my life. I was extra disappointed that in this last article Shaun Hittle nor the Topeka Police Department mentioned that I too have been very active in this matter. No mention of all the regular phone calls I’ve had with Shaun Hittle and the police department. I also obtained some information that the TPD was not aware of, about an attack that happened at the same location on two other women, which I found through court records. I am very driven that the right person pays for what he has done to me as well as what he put Joe Jones through. I want him to get the same sentence that Joe Jones got. If it’s good enough for Joe Jones, it’s good enough for him. This case has only reached this point from Shaun Hittle looking for justice for Joe Jones. I think it’s great and Joe Jones deserves it. I am very happy for him. Thank you Shaun Hittle for pursuing this matter and maybe it will be closure for me also. Thank you to Det. Arensdorf for all the time, effort and legwork you put in to this. Thanks for making me feel okay. Joe Jones, do treasure this day, you deserve to and I will do the same. Once again I am sorry for the time you spent convicted for something you did not do. This is my side of the story. — The victim of a crime but not a victim in life.
ID in Jones case had ‘huge red flag’ Policies changed to help reduce misidentification By Shaun Hittle firstname.lastname@example.org
In the 1985 wrongful rape conviction of Joe Jones, there were problems with how the Topeka Police Department handled the eyewitness identification, said Brandon Garrett, a University of Virginia law professor who examined Jones’ case as part of a 2009 large-scale study sponsored by the Innocence Project. “This case looks exactly like the others I’ve looked at,” said Garrett, whose study found that half of 250 wrongful conviction cases examined included a witness misidentification. But the biggest issue was how the victim in the case — who spent the most time with the attacker — identified Jones after the assault. At the time, Topeka police used what’s known as a “six-pack” photo array, during which a witness or victim is shown one sheet with six suspects. In the Jones case, the victim picked a photo of someone other than Jones. “That’s a huge red flag,”

TOPEKA CHIEF OF POLICE RONALD MILLER DISCUSSES the events that led to the exoneration of Joe Jones and discovering that Joel L. Russell is the suspect in the 1985 rape case Jones was convicted in. Garrett said. But the two other eyewitnesses spotted Jones on the street the night after the attack and called police. They were confident Jones was the rapist. Then at a preliminary hearing, the victim in the case saw Jones in the courthouse. She immediately identified Jones as her attacker, even though she hadn’t selected him in the photo lineup. From then on, the victim insisted Jones was the rapist, and testified to that at trial. “The trial ID may be very powerful,” said Garrett, but cautioned such an identification is prone
to mistakes. Jones was handcuffed, and the victim expected to see the attacker in court. And there’s the two other witnesses who could have influenced the victim’s choice, Garrett said. With mounting evidence that eyewitness misidentifications have led to scores of wrongful convictions over the years, police are changing practices. “There’s a lot more awareness about this,” Garrett said. “Eyewitness identification has for a long time been questionable,” said Topeka Police Chief Ron-
ald Miller, whose department recently instituted new policies aimed at reducing potential misidentifications. Topeka Detective Larry Falley explained how they now approach witness identifications. First and foremost, Falley said, is a change from the one-sheet six pack photo array to a onephoto “sequential” lineup, in which the witness is shown photos one at a time. This has several advantages, Falley said. In sequential lineups witnesses are less likely to guess than when there are multiple photos shown at once. And the photos themselves are much larger — and also include a side view — giving witnesses the opportunity to better examine facial features. The department also uses an “independent administrator” for photo lineups. The person showing the witness the lineup is not involved in the case and has no idea who the suspect is. This “blind” approach removes any chance the person showing the photos can influence the process, Falley said. — Reporter Shaun Hittle can be reached at 832-7173.

TOPEKAN JOE JONES, WHO SPENT SEVEN YEARS IN PRISON after being wrongfully convicted in a 1985 rape case, explained that learning that Joel L. Russell is the true suspect in the nearly 27-year-old case won’t change the course of his life’s events. He does believe that prosecuting Russell may help in his healing, however.
Testing backlog may be keeping other cold cases unsolved By Shaun Hittle email@example.com
The key to identifying Kansas inmate Joel Russell as a suspect in a 1985 unsolved rape sat in the Kansas Bureau of Investigation’s evidence vault for two decades. In 1992, the evidence — a rape kit — was tested, and the results confirmed the Topeka man serving a prison term for the rape was innocent. That test led to Joe Jones’ freedom. But in the intervening years, no one asked for another test that could have identified another suspect. In 1992, there wasn’t a DNA databank, so the information couldn’t be entered and produce a “cold hit” as it eventually did in this case. But why wasn’t the DNA retested sooner? “I don’t know that I can explain why it took so long,” said Topeka Police Chief Ronald Miller. During preparation of an October story about Jones, the JournalWorld learned evidence in the case had been preserved and could possibly still be tested. A day after the story was published, the Topeka Police Cold Case Unit reopened the rape case and later produced the DNA profile match with Russell. There’s an unknown number of such evidence kits across the country — all with the key to solving other cold cases — that sit untested, as in the Russell case, said Scott Berkowitz, president of the Rape, Abuse and Incest National Network. “It’s a big, national problem,” he said. Berkowitz places untested DNA evidence into two categories. First, there are those piled up as part of DNA lab backlogs. At the KBI lab, for instance, the backlog is about 230 cases, some going back to 2004,
It’s a big, national problem.” — Scott Berkowitz, president of the Rape, Abuse and Incest National Network said Kyle Smith, KBI deputy director. The KBI must prioritize cases because of limited resources, and first test the cases with upcoming trial dates. The cases with no suspect also get pushed back, Smith said. The larger issue, Berkowitz said, are the cases like Russell’s, where no one is even looking. “Most of the backlog is hidden,” he said. Berkowitz said it’s easy to imagine an old, unsolved rape or murder case that happened in a rural area decades ago. Detectives, police chiefs and family members of victims move away or die. And no one makes the move to see what old evidence, if any, might bring closure to a case. But it comes down to resources and knowing where to look. Berkowitz’s organization is pushing for the passage of the Sexual Assault Forensic Evidence Registry Act, which was introduced in Congress this year. The act would push local law enforcement agencies to identify untested evidence collected and stored well before DNA testing became an option in the early 1990s. “We’re not getting justice” without such measures, Berkowitz said. “At least we’ll know.” Miller said the Jones’ case could prompt Topeka police to search for similar evidence in other cold cases. “There may be other cases we need to look at,” he said. — Reporter Shaun Hittle can be reached at 832-7173.

Obama shows lack of will on Syria WASHINGTON — Last year President Obama ordered U.S. intervention in Libya under the grand new doctrine of “Responsibility to Protect.” Moammar Gaddafi was threatening a massacre in Benghazi. To stand by and do nothing “would have been a betrayal of who we are,” explained the president. In the year since, the government of Syria has more than threatened massacres. It has carried them out. Nothing hypothetical about the disappearances, executions, indiscriminate shelling of populated neighborhoods. More than 9,000 are dead. Obama has said that we cannot stand idly by. And what has he done? Stand idly by. Yes, we’ve imposed economic sanctions. But as with Iran, the economic squeeze has not altered the regime’s behavior. Monday’s announced travel and financial restrictions on those who use social media to track down dissidents is a pinprick. No Disney World trips for the chiefs of the Iranian and Syrian security agencies. And they might now have to park their money in Dubai instead of New York. That’ll stop ‘em. Obama’s other major announcement — at Washington’s Holocaust Museum, no less — was the creation of an Atrocities Prevention Board. I kid you not. A board. Russia flies planeloads of weapons to Damascus. Iran supplies money, trainers, agents, more weapons. And what does America do?
Charles Krauthammer firstname.lastname@example.org
Don’t pretend the U.N. is doing anything. Don’t pretend the U.S. is doing anything. And don’t embarrass the nation with an Atrocities Prevention Board.”
Support a feckless U.N. peace mission that does nothing to stop the killing. (Indeed, some of the civilians who met with the peacekeepers were summarily executed.) And establish an Atrocities Prevention Board. With multiagency participation, mind you. The liberal faith in the power of bureaucracy and flowcharts, of committees and reports, is legend. But this is parody. Now, there’s an argument to be made that we do not have a duty to protect. That foreign policy is not social work. That you risk American lives only when national security and/or strategic interests are at stake, not merely to satisfy the humanitarian impulses of some of our leaders.
But Obama does not make this argument. On the contrary. He goes to the Holocaust Museum to commit himself and his country to defend the innocent, to affirm the moral imperative of rescue. And then does nothing of any consequence. His case for passivity is buttressed by the implication that the only alternative to inaction is military intervention — bombing, boots on the ground. But that’s false. It’s not the only alternative. Why aren’t we organizing, training and arming the Syrian rebels in their sanctuaries in Turkey? Nothing unilateral here. Saudi Arabia is already planning to do so. Turkey has turned decisively against Assad. And the French are pushing for even more direct intervention. Instead, Obama insists that we can only act with support of the “international community,” meaning the U.N. Security Council — where Russia and China have a permanent veto. By what logic does the moral legitimacy of U.S. action require the blessing of a thug like Vladimir Putin and the butchers of Tiananmen Square? Our slavish, mindless selfsubordination to “international legitimacy” does nothing but allow Russia — a pretend postSoviet superpower — to extend a protective umbrella over whichever murderous client it chooses. Obama has all but announced that Russia (or China) has merely to veto international actions — sanctions, military assistance, direct intervention —

and the U.S. will back off. For what reason? Not even President Clinton, a confirmed internationalist, would acquiesce to such restraints. With Russia prepared to block U.N. intervention against its client, Serbia, Clinton saved Kosovo by summoning NATO to bomb the hell out of Serbia, the Russians be damned. If Obama wants to stay out of Syria, fine. Make the case that it’s none of our business. That it’s too hard. That we have no security/national interests there. In my view, the evidence argues against that, but at least a coherent case for hands off could be made. That would be an honest, straightforward policy. Instead, the president, basking in the sanctity of the Holocaust Museum, proclaims his solemn allegiance to a doctrine of responsibility — even as he stands by and watches Syria burn. If we are not prepared to intervene, even indirectly by arming and training Syrians who want to liberate themselves, be candid. And then be quiet. Don’t pretend the U.N. is doing anything. Don’t pretend the U.S. is doing anything. And don’t embarrass the nation with an Atrocities Prevention Board. The tragedies of Rwanda, Darfur and now Syria did not result from lack of information or lack of interagency coordination, but from lack of will.
Foreign Levi’s To the editor: I have purchased Levi’s jeans since I was about 12 years old. I remember buying them for $5 a pair when Hal Keltz had the Lawrence Surplus store in downtown Lawrence. I was looking at the labels of some that I have now and was very surprised to find that they were made in Egypt, Bangladesh, China, Lesotho (a country within the Republic of South Africa) and even Cambodia! And these were purchased here in Lawrence. No wonder that the unemployment rate is as high as it is. Chris Barteldes, Lawrence
New Testament is feeling and showing compassion. Mr. Burkhead is famous for quoting the Bible, yet still does not seem to comprehend what Jesus was about or the concept of human compassion. Certainly Jesus would have favored helping a suffering dying person end their lives in a dignified fashion. Don’t we take our pets when they are suffering to the vet to have them euthanized and should not humans be treated as fairly? This is called being humane, Mr. Burkhead.

Growth sees rebound after slow start WASHINGTON â€” Donâ€™t panic yet. The government reported Friday that the economy got off to a tepid start this year, but that doesnâ€™t foreshadow a repeat of the near-standstill that happened in 2011. â€œThe economy is firmly on a growth trajectory,â€? said Sung Won Sohn, an economics professor at California State Universityâ€™s Smith School of Business. â€œThe first-quarter slowdown will be temporary.â€? Still, the January-March report was discouraging. Economists had expected gross domestic product â€” the broadest gauge of economic output â€” to expand at a 2.5 percent annual rate for the first three months of the year. Instead, the Commerce
Department said it was 2.2 percent, mainly because of government budget-cutting and a slowdown in business investment. And some of the JanuaryMarch growth, meager as it was, probably came at the expense of the current quarter. An unseasonably warm winter pulled car buyers into showrooms earlier than usual. The same was true for housing construction. Thatâ€™s one reason it jumped at a 19 percent pace from January through March. Economists doubt consumers can keep spending as freely as they did in the first three months of this year: an annual pace that was 2.9 percent faster than in the previous quarter and the fastest in more than a year.

BIG 12 WOMEN’S GOLF
Tom Keegan email@example.com
Ill wind blows at LCC Iowa State senior Kristin Paulson of Ottumwa, Iowa, and her coach, Christie Martens, stood near a tree to the right of Lawrence Country Clubs’ 15th fairway and had agreed the only smart shot was a punch-out. “I was getting ready to hit the shot, and all of the sudden we hear this huge crack,” Paulson said. “And this branch about 10 yards away, this huge branch, fell down. We’re just lucky we’re still alive, pretty much.” The wind killed shots, putts and even a “huge branch” all day Friday in the opening round of the women’s golf Big 12 championship. Texas freshman Bertine Strauss of Koster, South Africa, won’t soon forget the range of emotions she felt when the branch cracked. “It was a scary but funny moment,” Strauss said. “It was pretty crazy. I mean, it could have hit one of them, and that would have not been good. It was a funny moment that I’ll remember for a little while.” The competitors differed on which shots were most crippled by the wind. “I would say definitely off the tee, having to deal with a cross wind most of the time, especially on the back nine,” Strauss said. “On the green it wasn’t as bad, but off the tee I felt it the most.” Canadian Anne-Catherine Tanguay, an Oklahoma sophomore from Quebec, shot 76 and carded a bogey on the final two holes after nailing a downhill, 30-foot putt for a birdie on No. 16, the hole that gave the field the most trouble. “I don’t even know if I knew what wind was before I came to Oklahoma,” Tanguay said. “Putting, it was hard to take your stance and not think about how the wind blowing you away and reading putts was just hard.” All the golfers polled agreed as to the quality of the course. “It was excellent,” Tanguay said. “I think it’s fantastic to be playing a course with rough, and then the fairways are top shape and the greens are top shape. They roll really well, and they’re firm. If you want a good championship, you need a quality course like this.” Strauss, who shot a 77, which put her two strokes off the three leaders heading into today’s second round of the three-round championship, considered the course tough but fair.

Bluster flusters KU in Round One By Jesse Newell firstname.lastname@example.org
As much as the Kansas women’s golfers had practiced at Lawrence Country Club, they still weren’t fully prepared for the weather they saw Friday. “We wanted wind,” KU golf coach Erin O’Neil said, “but I’m not sure we wanted this much wind.” The blustery conditions — along with the pressure that comes with being the host school — led to a disappointing opening day for KU during the first round of the threeday Big 12 championships. The Jayhawks finished with a team score of 338, which is last place out of the 10 league

When it’s windy like this, it’s just going to accentuate any mis-hit shot and make it worse.” The highlight for KU was
the play of junior Audrey Yowell, who entered as the Jayhawks’ fourth-best golfer according to scoring average. The McPherson native shot an 8-over 78, which put her in a tie for 10th. “I just tried to not hit amazing shots and made sure I gave myself enough room in case the Yowell wind picked up,” Yowell said. “Just choose the best place to err ... that’s what I did. It worked out well.” Yowell stayed consistent and limited damage, posting

only one score over bogey all day. She also finished her round with momentum, birdieing her final hole: the par-4 ninth. After getting on the green in two, Yowell faced a 30-foot putt. “I wasn’t really trying to make it. I was just trying to speed it down there so I could for sure get a par,” Yowell said. “And it went in, so that was a plus.” Yowell also ended her front nine with a birdie, posting a 2-over 37 through nine holes. “Audrey did a phenomenal job, and her head was in a good place from the get-go,” O’Neil said. “She embraced Please see GOLF, page 8B

Today’s spring finale won’t be just ‘glorified scrimmage’ By Matt Tait email@example.com
Whether it’s played in front of a record crowd or not, it sure sounds like today’s Kansas University spring football game — 1 p.m. kickoff at Memorial Stadium — is going to be a bit different than previous editions. “We will actually play a game,” first-year KU coach Charlie Weis said. “We won’t show everything, obviously, and use every personnel group due to the lack of numbers, but we will come out, run it and throw it. … I would not call it a glorified scrimmage because it is going to be more competitive Please see KEEGAN, page 8B than that.”
GRUB ‘N’ PARK Parking for today’s spring game is free in all lots, but Kansas Athletics and KU Parking and Transit are requesting that fans bring donations of non-perishable food items to benefit Just Food, the primary food bank that serves Douglas County’s low-income families. Donations will be accepted at the entrances to lots 94, 59, 50 and 52. Part of that is because of the mentality that Weis and his coaching staff have brought to town. For 14 practices over the past four weeks, the Jayhawks have been put through a tryout of
sorts. Whether it was a fifthyear senior who had logged all kinds of playing time in the past or a red-shirt freshman who had yet to play during a live game, each player was treated equally by KU’s new coaching staff, and each was given a shot to prove himself to the new regime. Just because today’s spring game marks the end of spring drills and will be played out in front of fans in Memorial Stadium does not mean anything changes. The players seem to realize that. “It’s a new staff here, and guys are still out here showing their best,” senior captain

S. Carolina cited for failure to monitor COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) â€” The NCAA has ruled that South Carolina failed to monitor its athletic program that resulted in various rules violations and has accepted the schoolâ€™s proposed sanctions to cut six football scholarships and slash its official recruiting visits by more than half in the coming year. There were no forfeiture of games or bowl ban attached to the penalties, which stemmed from athletes receiving $59,000 in impermissible benefits. The NCAA said South Carolinaâ€™s
cooperation went â€œbeyond standard expectations.â€? NCAA committee on infractions chairman Britton Banowsky said it was obvious early on that South Carolina wanted to get at the truth and in some instances did more than was required during the enforcement process. â€œThey took the interview process and discovery process to a higher level,â€? Banowsky said. The school will also pay a fine of $18,500. The football team will lose three of its 85 scholarships in both the 2013 and 2014
seasons. It will also cut official visits for football recruiting to 30 from 56 during the 20012-13 academic year. The NCAAâ€™s final report revised up the total of impermissible benefits by $4,000 to $59,000. South Carolina was placed on probation for three years, ending April 26, 2015. South Carolina athletic director Eric Hyman pledged from the start his department would cooperate fully with the NCAA â€œThe university regrets the past actions and decisions by

I already miss the Bowl Championship Series like an old pair of shoes that might have stepped in something. Is it really going away in two years? What will be left to lampoon? College footballâ€™s smart people, however, insist itâ€™s time to move forward to some sort of post-2014, post-modern, postseason involving four teams. Although ordinary folks would call this a playoff, conference commissioners as late as Wednesday preferred the euphemism â€œfour-team event.â€? After two days of meetings in South Florida, commissioners on Thursday only officially announced there would not be an eight- or 16-team playoff. This was like breaking news of a sunrise over Boca Raton. More important, our fearless leaders are fervently homing in on some variation of a fourteam solution. â€œWe will present to our conferences a very small number of four-team options,â€? the BCS released in a statement. My preferred â€œevent,â€? the original Plus One, apparently fell off the table during a lunch break even though it best protected the regular season and bowls. The â€œoriginalâ€? Plus One simply picks No. 1 and No. 2 after the bowl games. It keeps every BCS bowl in the national title hunt until New Yearâ€™s Day, and doesnâ€™t extend the season beyond Jan. 8 or 9. It didnâ€™t fly because commissioners were too far down the road with the four-team concept, which is fine. The presidents should approve some offshoot of this model sometime this summer. Make no mistake: A fourteam playoff wonâ€™t end the postseason controversy. Oklahoma State coach Mike Gundy, after accepting his coach-of-the-year award from the Football Writers Association of America in New Orleans in January, said a four-team playoff would have settled last seasonâ€™s argument. Using the final BCS standings, No.1 Louisiana State would have played No. 4 Stanford, with No. 2 Alabama pairing off against No. 3 Oklahoma State. I kindly pointed out that No. 5 Oregon thrashed Stanford in Palo Alto and also won, outright, something called the Pac-12 championship. â€œOh, yeah,â€? Gundy said. No postseason plan is perfect, not even the NFLâ€™s, where sub-.500 teams can win division championships. The important thing for college football is to move forward while protecting the past. Some pundits would just as soon see bowls disappear. Not me, although ESPN could easily retire five or 10 to the Cadillac Ranch. The tricky part of any new deal is not diminishing the traditions that made college football great, namely the regular season and the Rose Bowl. Granddaddy is going to have to make adjustments, again, 14 years after joining the BCS.

Tigersâ€™ Young apologizes after hate-crime arrest NEW YORK â€” Detroit Tigers left fielder Delmon Young apologized to his team and fans Friday, just before getting arraigned on a hate crime harassment charge for a fight at his hotel during which police say he yelled anti-Semitic epithets. Young posted a $5,000 bond at a brief hearing in Manhattan court and was released less than an hour before the Tigersâ€™ game against the Yankees. He faces a misdemeanor aggravated harassment charge that entails targeting someone for his or her religious beliefs. If convicted, he could face up to a year in jail. Wearing a dark suit, Young said nothing during his arraignment. In a statement, however, Young said: â€œI sincerely regret what happened last night.â€? He apologized to the Tigers owners and organization, his teammates, family and Detroit fans. The Tigers arrived in New York at 10:30 p.m. Thursday after their plane sat on the tarmac for 2 hours, 15 minutes in Detroit, according to Leyland. Around 2:30 a.m., Young was standing outside of the Hilton New York. Nearby, a group of about four Chicago tourists staying at the hotel were approached by a panhandler wearing a yarmulke and a Star of David around his neck, according to police. After, as the group walked up to the hotel doors, Young started yelling anti-Semitic epithets, police said. It was not clear whom Young was yelling at, but he got into a tussle with the Chicago group, and a 32-year-old man was tackled and sustained scratches to his elbows, according to police and the criminal complaint.

Free agency best bet for KU’s NFL hopefuls By Matt Tait firstname.lastname@example.org
Although most of the former Kansas University football players eligible for this year’s NFL Draft will go undrafted and be scooped up via free-agent deals in the days that follow, the group had one of the best advisers around heading into pre-draft workouts. “I spent more time (with them) on the front end, not the back end,” said first-year KU coach Charlie Weis, who walked NFL sidelines for nearly two decades. “Prior to interviews (with NFL scouts), I
sat down with all of them and said, ‘You don’t know me, but you know that I have connections. I can’t really respond to anyone about you, because I don’t really know you, but what I can tell you is, this is what’s going to happen.’ And I explained to them how it works.” Of all the Jayhawks hoping to hear their names called this weekend, linebacker Steven Johnson has the best shot of being drafted. The 6-foot, 239-pound linebacker led the Jayhawks in tackles in each of the past two seasons and, in February, participated at the invite-
only NFL Combine in Indianapolis. “He could get drafted late,” read Johnson’s Combine bio. “But stands a shot to make a roster as an immediate special teams contributor. He is a strong player who gets a lot of production by keeping blockers off him and understanding where they’re coming from, a trait highly attractive to coaches of 3-4 schemes. He will have to be drafted within a particular scheme that fits his needs in order to find success early. A recent mock draft released by ESPN.com’s Todd McShay, which covered all seven rounds and 246 picks,
did not include Johnson or fellow NFL hopefuls tight end Tim Biere, offensive linemen Jeremiah Hatch and Jeff Spikes or cornerback Isiah Barfield. That, Weis said, does not mean Johnson or the rest of the group won’t make an NFL team. “They think he is a nice, solid inside linebacker,” said Weis, asked what his NFL friends told him about Johnson. “I think he will have a good chance of being on somebody’s team … and, as a player, that is all you ask for. Unless you are getting taken high in the first round, money in this league is not made

KANSAS THIRD BASEMAN ZAC ELGIE MAKES A THROW to first. KU fell to Oklahoma, 4-1, on Friday at Hoglund Ballpark.
KU baseball falls, 4-1 By Matt Tait email@example.com
His team gave him just one run and five hits during Friday’s 4-1 loss to Oklahoma at Hoglund Ballpark, but Kansas University sophomore pitcher Frank Duncan logged another strong outing for the Jayhawks. Duncan even delivered when he wasn’t pitching. With the Jayhawks trailing 2-0 after three innings, a heavy rain began to fall, and the game entered into a rain delay that lasted one hour and 38 minutes. During the delay, Duncan worked just as hard as he did on the mound. Back in the Jayhawks’ clubhouse, Duncan first visited with trainers and made sure to get heating pads on his throwing arm. He then hit the treadmill, walking for 10 minutes and sitting for five. He repeated the cycle for a few turns and then hit the bullpen once the Jayhawks got the all-clear. “It was just like preparing for a start again,”
Spring CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1B
Toben Opurum said. “Even if they’re comfortable with where they are, they want to make sure they’re showing their best all the time. (Weis) wants to make it as game-like as possible. The earlier we can see what the presence is gonna be, the better it’ll be for us. It’ll definitely have a different feel to it than the last few spring games.” That’s not just because of the new mind-set. Weis also will reveal plenty of elements of the 2012 squad that people seem to be dying to see. At the top of that list is Notre Dame transfer Dayne Crist, a senior quarterback who is expected to start this fall. Asked what he’s hoping for from today’s game, the fifth-year senior QB offered a glimpse into why Weis seems to be so connected to him. “Guys stay healthy,” Crist said. “That’s the last thing you want to do is
Duncan (4-6) said. “It actually felt like it was a new game.” In many ways it was. Despite the lengthy delay, both coaches elected to stay with their starters, and both were rewarded big-time. Duncan struck out five of the first six Sooners he faced following the delay and made it through seven innings before his night was finished. “That’s his first time going through something like that,” KU coach Ritch Price said. “And I was pleased with the job he did. On a Friday night in this league, it’s absolutely crucial for your starter to give you seven innings, and he did that.” According to Price, Duncan’s strong effort actually was bittersweet for the Jayhawks. “Duncan’s been our best (pitcher),” Price said. “So that ends up being a devastating loss. Not just because you lose Game 1 of the series, but because you lose Game 1 with your best guy.”
While Duncan was doing his best to keep the Jayhawks in it until their bats could come alive, OU ace John Jordan (8-4) was baffling the Jayhawks (17-26 overall, 4-12 Big 12). Only senior Zac Elgie (2for-4) recorded multiple hits. Elgie, who injured his hand sliding into third base after tripling in the seventh, also singled and was taken to the hospital to examine the hand after the game. The Jayhawks reached base only eight times all night, twice on errors, as Jordan struck out eight and walked none. “I have to tip my hat to John,” Price said. “He did a fabulous job of mixing pitches, and when he went to his fastball we were late all night. He dominated our right-handed hitters, a lot of them who were in the lineup tonight to get to him.” KU and OU (27-16, 8-8) will resume the series at 6 tonight.
lose a guy in the spring game. It’s great to get out there and have fans around, but at the end of the day you want to have guys get out of the game healthy.” Of course, there is more to it than that, and Crist acknowledged as much. Asked what he hoped for from himself and Weis’ offense, Crist coughed up a little more coach-speak. “Just be efficient,” he said. “I know that’s kind of vague, but that’s kind of the goal you have every time you step out as a quarterback. Just being as efficient as possible in your throws and making the right checks and just putting the team in the best situation at all times.” Opurum said the coaches tried to split up the blue squad and the white squad as evenly as possible. The Jayhawks were told which team they would be on at the end of Thursday’s practice, but the rosters won’t be made public until kickoff. One guess that seems safe is that Crist and BYU-transfer Jake Heaps, who will have to sit out the 2012 season,
will be on opposite teams. And while the two ultracompetitive, former fivestar QBs no doubt will try to outdo each other throughout the day, Crist said he and Heaps had not made any wagers as extra incentive. “Nah. That’d be an NCAA violation,” Crist said with a laugh. As for what he expects from Heaps, that was no laughing matter. “I know it’s exciting for him,” Crist said of Heaps. “He’s worked so hard this spring, and it’s nice for him to have this outlet and to just be able to go out and do it live for the last time in probably a long time. It’ll be great for him, but we’re excited for everybody and just want to put a nice close on spring practice.” Added offensive lineman Tanner Hawkinson: “We just want to show ’em that we’ve made progress throughout the spring and putting our best day together as a unit. We want to show not only the fans but also ourselves that we’ve grasped the offense.”
JOPLIN, MO. — Kansas University’s Andrea Geubelle leaped to the NCAA’s best triple-jump mark — 44 feet, 51⁄2 inches — at the Bill Williams/ Bob Laptad Invitational on Friday as 11 Jayhawks and three relay teams claimed titles. KU’s other winners Friday: Eric Dyson, men’s 3,000 steeplechase, 9:28.75; Paris Daniels, women’s 400, 55.39; Diamond Dixon, women’s 100, 11.34, and women’s 200, 23.13; Maddy Rich, women’s 800; 2:19.18; Timmie Morris, women’s 400 hudles, 1:04.42; Michael Stigler, men’s 400 hurdles, 53.05; Ragan Allen, women’s 1,500, 4:52.64; Evan Landes, men’s 5,000, 14:56.63; Demi Payne, women’s pole vault (tie), and Jonathan 13-91⁄4; Fuller, men’s high jump, 6-111⁄2.
when you first sign, money is made on your second contract. That is common knowledge.” Last year, former KU defensive back Chris Harris watched all three days of the NFL Draft but did not expect to be selected. He wasn’t, as the 32 NFL teams drafted 254 players instead of him. Harris used that as motivation and wound up starting for the Denver Broncos and finishing in the top five among all rookies in tackles. Weis said Harris’ path was an example of an undrafted player doing it the right way. “Sometimes a player
will take $2,000 to sign as an unrestricted free agent after the draft with some team that he has no chance of making, versus going to another team for nothing, that they have a chance of making,” Weis said. “When you make the team, that is when you make some money, not when someone gives you $2,000 to sign. I tried to explain to them the thought process and how the whole thing works.” The draft, which began with the first round Thursday night and rounds two and three Friday, will wrap today, with rounds four through seven.

Rockies rough up Mets, 18-8 The Associated Press
Rockies 18, Mets 8 DENVER — Carlos Gonzalez was at the center of an 11-run fifth inning, hitting a homer and single to drive in five of his six RBIs, and Colorado outslugged New York on Friday night. Ramon Hernandez hit his sixth career grand slam — and first for the Rockies this season — and Troy Tulowitzki and Dexter Fowler also homered for Colorado, which scored a season high. The Mets had some firepower of their own as Scott Hairston became the 10th player in team history to hit for the cycle while driving in four runs, but it wasn’t enough on a night when pitching was an afterthought and the ball was flying all over in the Mile High city’s thin air.

The sprint to the NBA playoffs is over, and the postseason lineup is one of the most intriguing ever. LeBron James vs. Carmelo Anthony, the young and confident Oklahoma City Thunder looking for an early knockout against the defending champion Dallas Mavericks, two Los Angeles teams shooting for one title and the venerable San Antonio Spurs looking for a second lockout-season title. Yes, the shortened yet surprisingly successful regular season is the books and the playoffs promise to be even better. “I think our fans are hungry for the playoffs,” commissioner David Stern said. “Our network partners are excited by the prospect, and you know, I think, I can tell you, I’m looking forward to it in the same way. So
I think our fans are hungry for the playoffs. Our network partners are excited by the prospect, and you know, I think, I can tell you, I’m looking forward to it in the same way.” — NBA commissioner David Stern I think it’s going to be great.” It starts today with the Chicago Bulls, the overall No. 1 seed, hosting the Philadelphia 76ers. Then it’s Miami against New York, with James and Anthony just a couple of the big names in a series loaded with star power. And with history. The teams met four straight years from 19972000, the Knicks winning three of the series and earning a draw in the fights. The animosity doesn’t exist between these players — James and Anthony have known each other since high school before entering the league
final two meetings, including a 96-91 victory March 4 in one of the rare times this season when it had its starting five together. Derrick Rose had 35 points and eight assists in that game. The 76ers won 98-82 on Feb. 1 when the Bulls played without Luol Deng and Richard Hamilton. Story line: After falling to Miami last year in the Eastern Conference finals, the Bulls are the East’s No. 1 seed again and picked up some motivation during the week as they face former Chicago coach Doug Collins’ team. Philadelphia guard Evan Turner said he preferred to face the Bulls instead of the Heat, believing that was a better matchup. Key Matchup I: Luol Deng vs. Andre Iguodala. Iguodala led a strong defensive effort against the fellow first-time AllStar, as Deng shot 3 for 11 in both games he played and averaged just 7.0 points. Iguodala also scored 19 points in the 76ers’ victory but totaled only 21 in the losses, going just 3 for 10 for seven points in the finale. Key Matchup II: C.J. Watson vs. Lou Williams. Williams, one of the NBA’s top reserves, had an 0-for-7 night as part of a 7-for-28 season against the Bulls, averaging just 9.7 points. Watson, the solid backup to Rose or starter when Rose was hurt, had a pair of 20-point games against the 76ers. X-factor: Joakim Noah. Had only two points and two rebounds in Chicago’s loss, then averaged 12 points and 14.5 boards as the Bulls took the last two meetings. Prediction: Bulls in 5.
No. 2 Miami Heat (46-20) vs. No. 7 New York Knicks (36-30)
The Associated Press
together in 2003 — but you bet it’s still around for the organizations and fans. “Once the ball tips off, it’s a series that we’re both trying to win,” Miami’s Dwyane Wade said. “Obviously it makes great headlines and makes everyone in the organization really tuned in to what’s going on. It’s kind of like they’re looking at us like, ‘All right, go get it done for us.’ But when the ball tips off, it’s another game against a very talented opponent.” Also today, the Indiana Pacers host the Orlando Magic, who playoff hopes seem to have left along with Dwight Howard, be-
fore the Mavericks visit the Thunder in the nightcap. Dallas eliminated Oklahoma City in five games last year on its way to the NBA championship. The teams ended up in the first round this season after the Thunder fell into the No. 2 seed with a late-season stumble, and the Mavericks could never put together a run to move up. “It’s all we’ve been looking forward to for a long time,” Thunder AllStar Kevin Durant said. “It’s going to be a tough, tough series for us playing against the reigning champions. They cause so many problems on the offensive end and defensive end for us.” The other four series start Sunday. San Antonio hosts Utah in the opener, followed by the Lakers against Denver. Boston visits Atlanta before Memphis welcomes the Clippers in the two 4-5 series at night.

Season series: Heat, 3-0. Miami had a pair of double-digit wins at home before pulling away in the fourth quarter to beat the Knicks 93-85 on April 15 at Madison Square Garden despite 42 points from Carmelo Anthony. Anthony and Amare Stoudemire each missed a game. Dwyane Wade averaged 26 points on 52.5 percent shooting for the Heat, while LeBron James added 26.7 points, 9.0 rebounds and 6.0 assists. Story line: A matchup loaded with star power as the teams renew an old playoff rivalry. New York beat Miami three times in four years from 1997-00, but the Heat will be expected to get through this one in what they hope is the first step toward another NBA finals. Key matchup I: James vs. Anthony. Perhaps the marquee duel in the first round, matching the longtime friends from the 2003 draft class and Olympic teammates. Anthony’s sizzling April was built largely against power forwards he had quickness advantages on but now has to deal with James, who held him to only two baskets in the fourth quarter of the most recent meeting. Key matchup II: Chris Bosh vs. Stoudemire. Stoudemire wondered why Bosh was ranked above him in the 2010 free agent class, saying he had been on winning teams throughout his career while Bosh hadn’t. But Bosh outplayed him this season even with a 4-for-18 night in the first meeting, averaging 18 points and 10.3 rebounds. Stoudemire managed just 12.5 points and 6.0 boards before missing the finale. X-factor: JR Smith and Steve Novak. New York needs its perimeter shooters to get hot off the bench if Anthony and Stoudemire are going to get the room they need. Prediction: Heat in 6.
No. 3 Indiana Pacers (42-24) vs. No. 6 Orlando Magic (37-29)
Season series: Magic, 3-1. Orlando won twice in Indiana, holding the Pacers to 82 points per game in those matchups. Of course, the Magic had Dwight Howard for those four games and don’t have him now, which makes the season series largely meaningless. Story line: Orlando long had the inside track on the No. 3 seed in the East, but ended up barely holding on to sixth after Howard was lost at the end of the season to back surgery. Meanwhile, the Pacers surged to the finish to draw what appears to be a favorable matchup. Key matchup I: Danny Granger vs.
Quentin Richardson. Richardson has always been a rugged defender up for the task of taking on the opposition’s top scorer, but nobody on the Magic had much luck against Granger, who averaged 19.3 points even with a 4-of-16 night thrown in. Key matchup II: George Hill vs. Jameer Nelson. Hill played well after replacing an injured Darren Collison that he held onto the point guard job even after Collison returned. Nelson has long been Orlando’s second-best player and will need to be at his best without Howard. X-factor: Tyler Hansbrough. With Orlando a little undersized up front, Hansbrough has a chance to come off the bench and duplicate his performances in the last two meetings, when he averaged 18 points. Prediction: Pacers in 5.
No. 4 Boston Celtics (39-27) vs. No. 5 Atlanta Hawks (40-26)
Season series: Celtics, 2-1. Boston won the first two matchups by a combined five points, then essentially gave away the shot at home-court advantage in this series when it rested all of its top players in a 97-92 loss in Atlanta on April 20. Rajon Rondo had 20 assists in a triple-double in one of Boston’s wins. Story line: For as long as the Celtics last in this postseason, the story is whether this is the last we’ll see of Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce and Ray Allen together. Boston has the higher seed as the Atlantic Division champion but that is meaningless, because the Hawks’ better record gives them home-court advantage. Key matchup I: Garnett vs. Josh Smith. A pair of versatile power forwards who have been forced to spend time as centers because of injuries. Garnett averaged 19 points against the Hawks and was out resting when Smith had 19 points and 12 rebounds in the final meeting. Key matchup II: Allen vs. Joe Johnson. It’s unknown what Allen can do after sitting out the final nine games, two against Atlanta, because of a sore right ankle. He scored 19 in the game he did play. Johnson poured in 30 on April 20, bouncing back from a 5-for-17 night in a two-point overtime loss to the Celtics nine days earlier. X-factor: The second-year guard was productive as Allen’s replacement and may need to have a big role if Allen isn’t up to defending the All-Star Johnson. Prediction: Celtics in 7.
Western Conference No. 1 San Antonio Spurs (50-16) vs. No. 8 Utah Jazz (36-30)
Season series: Spurs, 3-1. Ignore the April 9 game in Salt Lake City, because the Spurs did. They left Tim Duncan, Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili behind for the second night of a home-and-home series, resulting in Utah’s only victory over them this season. Story line: San Antonio won its final 10 games to earn the No. 1 seed for the second straight season. The Spurs were knocked off in the first round last year by Memphis, but go in healthy this year as they look to duplicate their 1999 title that came in a shortened season. Key matchup I: Parker vs. Devin Harris. Harris got better in each matchup, culminating with 25 points in the April 9 meeting. But he was outplayed in the other three games by Parker, a fellow speedster who scored 28 points the night before. Key matchup II: Duncan vs. Al Jefferson. Jefferson had four double-doubles, two of the 20-10 variety, so he’ll put up good numbers. Duncan might not, at least not like he used to, but will provide the steady play on both ends that the Spurs expect. X-factor: Ginobili. The Spurs’ playoff hopes were wrecked before they started last year when Ginobili was hurt in the season finale. He’s healthy now and a threat against the Jazz after a pair of 23-point outings against them. Prediction: Spurs in 5.
No. 2 Oklahoma City Thunder (4719) vs. No. 7 Dallas Mavericks (36-30) Season series: Thunder, 3-1. The teams split a pair of meetings in the first 10 days of the season before Oklahoma City won the final two. Kevin Durant averaged 25.5 points and Russell Westbrook added 22.8 for the Thunder, while Dirk Nowitzki’s 22.5 led the Mavericks but were 10 per game
fewer than he averaged in last year’s playoff series. Story line: A rematch of last year’s Western Conference finals, won by Dallas in five games, is probably not the matchup either team wanted in the first round. The Thunder would have avoided it without their sputtering finish to the regular season, while the Mavericks dropped their final two in a title defense that’s never really gotten off the ground. Key matchup I: Westbrook vs. Jason Kidd. The Thunder’s biggest struggles often come on Westbrook’s poor shooting nights, and the 39-year-old Kidd will need help to force the speedy point guard into them. Key matchup II: Durant vs. Shawn Marion. Marion remains a versatile defender whom the Mavericks like to put on opposing point guards, but probably can’t risk using anyone else against the NBA’s reigning threetime scoring champion. X-factor: Brandan Wright. The reserve forward is one of the few Mavericks with young legs, and they will be needed to keep up with the much quicker Thunder. Prediction: Thunder in 6.
No. 3 Los Angeles Lakers (41-25) vs. No. 6 Denver Nuggets (3828)
Season series: Lakers, 3-1. The Lakers won the final two meetings after the teams split a holiday home-and-home on New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day. Kobe Bryant sat out the final meeting April 13, but Andrew Bynum scored 30 points as part of a monster series. He averaged 24.8 points on 66 percent shooting. Story line: Knocked out in the second round last year after consecutive NBA titles, the Lakers try to start another finals run against a Nuggets team that won its final four games to reach the No. 6 seed. Key matchup I: Bryant vs. Arron Afflalo. No matter what shape Bryant is in after a shin injury sidelined him for much of the stretch run, he’ll have to shoot better than he did against the Nuggets. He made just 27.5 percent of his shots, worst against any team. Key matchup II: Pau Gasol vs. Kenneth Faried. If the Nuggets can’t stop Bynum they need to have some success against Gasol, and they really didn’t in the regular season. He averaged 16 points and 10.8 rebounds, and now it’s up to the rookie to try to contain him. X-factor: Matt Barnes. With Metta World Peace suspended the next six games, Barnes will have to provide the defense against Danilo Gallinari and Al Harrington on the wings. Prediction: Lakers in 5.
No. 4 Memphis Grizzlies (41-25) vs. No. 5 Los Angeles Clippers (40-26)
Season series: Clippers, 2-1. Memphis won the final meeting in April, getting a split of the two games in which Zach Randolph appeared. Chris Paul averaged 19.3 points and 8.7 assists for the Clippers. Story line: A good first-round matchup between teams who enjoyed some of the most successful seasons ever. But the ending belonged to the Grizzlies, who won six in a row while the Clippers dropped three of their final four, allowing Memphis to grab home-court advantage. Key Matchup I: Randolph vs. Blake Griffin. Randolph was the star of the Grizzlies’ surprising run to a Game 7 of the second round last season and has played his way back into shape after a knee injury. But he lacks the quickness and explosiveness to defend Griffin, who scored 19, 20 and 20 points in the three games. Key Matchup II: Rudy Gay vs. Caron Butler. A pair of former Connecticut forwards who were forced to watch the playoffs because of injuries last year. Gay, set for his playoff debut, averaged 17 points on 51 percent shooting against the Clippers. Butler couldn’t make it back in time to play for the Mavericks in the NBA finals but brings veteran leadership now to a club that is largely inexperienced in the postseason. X-Factor: Randy Foye. The Clippers need the replacement for Chauncey Billups to hit from the outside the way he did in their March 24 victory, when he scored 18 points. But the Grizzlies held him to just 11 on 5-of-17 shooting to win the finale. Prediction: Grizzlies in 7.

Chiefs take tackles
30 + MPG* & 3 Years of Oil Changes
K.C. selects Illinois’ Allen, OU’s Stephenson KANSAS CITY, MO. (AP) — When offensive tackle Jeff Allen arrived at Illinois as a wide-eyed freshman four years ago, veteran Jon Asamoah was there to show him the ropes. Looks like Asamoah will be doing the same thing in the NFL. Not just for Allen, either. The Chiefs picked the four-year starter from Illinois in the second round of the NFL Draft Friday night, and followed by selecting Oklahoma offensive tackle Donald Stephenson in the third round, building up depth for a unit that struggled mightily much of last season. “We’ve created more competition on our offensive line, and depth,” general manager Scott Pioli said, “and there’s going to be a lot of players fighting for positions.” Allen was picked with the No. 44 overall selection, while Stephenson went at No. 74. The two will join an offensive line expected to pave the way for running back Jamaal Charles, who showed flashes of brilliance two years ago before a knee injury in Week 2 put an early end to last season. The Chiefs also signed veteran running back Peyton Hillis this offseason.
We’ve created more competition on our offensive line, and depth, and there’s going to be a lot of players fighting for positions.” — Kansas City Chiefs general manager Scott Pioli Allen started 47 games for the Illini, playing right tackle as a freshman and moving to the left side as a sophomore. But at 6-foot4 and 307 pounds, Allen also has the size and ability to play at the guard position, which he tried out for scouts at the Senior Bowl. “It’s just like the transition I made from high school to college,” Allen said. “Jon was one of the guys who took me under his wing, showed me how to work and how to perform at a high level. I see it being the same in the NFL, someone to look to and someone who can give me advice.” The 6-6, 312-pound Stephenson became a starter at Oklahoma as a junior, but didn’t truly shine until his senior year, when he was part of an offensive line that allowed 11 total sacks. “Wherever they put me,
I’ll take it,” said Stephenson, who grew up in Kansas City and played high school football in the suburb of Blue Springs. “I just want to come and work hard and find a way to get on the field and help this team out.” Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops was quick to offer his praise. “We take a lot of pride in the way we protect our quarterbacks,” he said, “and Donald had great responsibility while playing left tackle. He grew into that role and handled it well for us, and I think he’ll continue to grow as a professional.” With recently signed Eric Winston and veteran Branden Albert at the tackle spots, the best chance for either player to get on the field this season could be inside. Asamoah solidified his spot last season, but Ryan Lilja struggled with injuries and inconsistency at guard. Albert and Lilja are also in the final year of their contract. “I think they’ll come in and compete immediately for positions,” Pioli said. “Both of them have great deal of versatility, so the good news is they’ll be able to compete and push the guys ahead of them for jobs right away.”

STANFORD TIGHT END COBY FLEENER, LEFT, WAITS WITH Stanford quarterback Andrew Luck prior to the first round of the NFL Draft on Thursday in New York. Fleener was reunited with Luck on Friday night when the Indianapolis Colts selected Fleener with the second pick of the second round. The Colts made Luck the first pick of the draft on Thursday night.
Draft reunites Fleener, Luck NEW YORK (AP) — Coby Fleener heard his name, grabbed his phone and immediately contacted his new teammate in Indianapolis — and old teammate from Stanford. The overnight wait paid off for the Stanford tight end. He’s reuniting with his college quarterback, a guy named Andrew Luck. Fleener wasn’t chosen in the first round of the NFL draft, in which Luck was the top selection. He got a nice consolation prize Friday night when the Indianapolis Colts grabbed him with the second pick of the second round. Among the other notable selections on the second day of the draft were: Oregon running back LaMichael James by San Francisco, Wisconsin quarterback Russell Wilson by Seattle and Alabama linebacker Courtney Upshaw by Baltimore. Chances are very good Fleener will become a starter — and a main target — for Luck in Indianapolis. “I just sent him a text message that had a lot of exclamation points in it,” said Fleener, who had 10 touchdown catches last season and 18 for his career in Stanford’s prodigious offense. “I expected to be on a team where I wasn’t familiar with the offense or the quarter-
back. I can’t wait to get started, to be honest with you.” Indy not only parted with four-time MVP quarterback Peyton Manning this year, but also lost tight end Jacob Tamme to free agency and isn’t expected to bring back injury-ravaged veteran Dallas Clark. “For me, getting to play with him the past couple of years, it is speed, he is dynamic,” Luck said. “Anytime we crossed the 50-yard line it seemed like we just said, ‘Coby, go run. Go run past the safeties.’ Hopefully it continues to work out.” The Rams actually used their own pick to begin the second round, selecting Appalachian State wide receiver Brian Quick. St. Louis traded down twice in the first round the previous night, accumulating several extra picks and also taking LSU defensive tackle Michael Brockers 14th overall. In the second-round spot they earned for going 2-14 in 2011, the Rams took a wideout from an FCS powerhouse. The 6-foot-4 Quick had a strong Senior Bowl, showing he could play at the highest college level and helping his stock in the draft. Upshaw of the national champion Crimson Tide was chosen with the Ravens’ first pick of this
draft. Baltimore was projected by many to take Upshaw in the first round, but dealt away its pick. Four of Upshaw’s Alabama teammates went in the first round. Janoris Jenkins, a cornerback at North Alabama who was kicked off the team at Florida, went to the Rams six picks after they took Quick. Jenkins, holding an infant in his arms, had tears in his eyes as he spoke by phone with the Rams. “I just be honest,” Jenkins said about talking about his past transgressions. “I don’t have nothing to hide. That was my past, that was a year ago. I took my second route to go to UNA for a reason, to show people I wasn’t a bad kid and I wasn’t running from my problems.” Division II guard Amini Silatolu, a member of the Little All-America team, was the eighth overall selection in the second round by Carolina. It took 11 picks before Friday’s first trade, with the Jets moving up four slots and surrendering a fifth- and seventhrounder to Seattle to take Georgia Tech wide receiver Stephen Hill. New York needs a deep threat wideout, and Hill was the fastest player at the NFL combine. But he also comes from a running offense.

L AWRENCE J OURNAL -W ORLD
Royals’ streak Golf reaches three
CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1B
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — There was no celebration, no flip of the ball, no overthe-top display of emotion. When Alex Gordon robbed his first home run since becoming an outfielder, he looked as though he’d done it a hundred times before. Gordon and Billy Butler each hit a two-run homer, and the Kansas City Royals beat the Minnesota Twins, 7-6, Friday night for their third straight win. Gordon also stole a home run from Danny Valencia in the second inning, leaping high above the left-field wall and snatching the ball out of the air right before it landed in a row of flowers just beyond the fence. “I’ve always been waiting to rob one since I’ve been playing outfield and that’s the first one. It was great,” Gordon said with a grin. “Just brought it down, threw it back in. Acted like I’ve done it before.” Mike Moustakas delivered the go-ahead single in the eighth inning and Alcides Escobar added an RBI single three batters later for Kansas City, which had lost 12 straight before beginning its winning streak. Trevor Plouffe homered for the Twins. Alexi Casilla had two hits and two RBIs, but Minnesota again struggled with runners in scoring position and dropped below the Royals for the worst record in baseball. A week ago, the Royals probably would have lost a game like this. Now, it’s the Twins who can’t seem to catch a break. “We need something to lift us up,” manager Ron Gardenhire said. “Same

story too many times right now.” Jonathan Broxton struck out Joe Mauer and Justin Morneau for his third save in four chances. Gordon gave the Royals an early lead with a 439foot drive off Carl Pavano in the first. Butler’s homer in the third made it 4-3 Kansas City. With the score tied at 5 and runners on first and second with nobody out in the seventh, Royals right fielder Jeff Francoeur made a diving catch on Ryan Doumit’s line drive and doubled off Mauer at first base. Gardenhire briefly argued with umpire Brian Gorman that Francoeur trapped the ball. The play helped former Twins reliever Jose Mijares (1-1) wriggle out of a jam and get a win in his first appearance at Target Field since Minnesota let the big lefty leave as a free agent during the offseason.
the wind and the challenge and rolled with it. It paid off.” Thanuttra Boonraksasat finished with a 13-over 83 to put herself in a tie for 30th place. The sophomore sat at 3-over after her first nine holes before struggling down the stretch. “My goal today was to not have three-putts and not have (double bogeys), and I had four of them on the back nine,” Boonraksasat said, “so I’m kind of mad.” Katy Nugent (88, T-46th place), Gaby DiMarco (89, T-48th) and Meghan Potee (91, 50th) were the other Jayhawks who competed Friday. Iowa State (311) sits in first after Day One, followed by Baylor (313) and Oklahoma State (315). Three golfers share the lead. Baylor’s Hayley Davis, Iowa State’s Sasikarn On-Iam and Oklahoma’s Chirapat Jao-Javanil each carded a 5-over 75. The weather conditions should be less hazardous today, with forecasts calling for calmer winds with highs in the mid-70s. KU’s golfers will tee off with Texas Tech beginning at 8 this morning. “We just hope to recover a little bit, get some confidence back,” O’Neil said.

Strauss holds the key to successful golf in that she doesn’t allow anything to become a negative. She puts a positive spin on more than just the shots she hits into greens. “I’m not 100 percent accustomed to the wind yet, but I don’t mind playing in it,” Strauss said. “It makes it a lot different, and it makes it interesting.” The wind will calm today, and the scores will drop, but the trees will be just as thick, the greens just as slick, the pressure up just a tick.

NEW YORK — Ever wonder why the same hotel gets four stars from one website and three stars from another? What’s the difference between a bedand-breakfast and an inn? What exactly is a boutique hotel, and what do you get when you stay at a resort? Here’s a primer on hotel rating systems, categories and definitions. Bed-and-breakfast: An owner-occupied property with no more than 10 or 15 guest rooms, plus common areas. Breakfast is included in room rates. Inn: Usually an independently owned property with more than 10 rooms but fewer than 50; often the owner lives onsite. Some inns include dinner and breakfast in room rates; some have full-service restaurants open to the public. Boutique hotel: Characterized by unique, stylish or even quirky decor and interior design, offering a stark alternative in appearance and experience to chain brands where furnishings may be identical in every location. Boutique hotels were originally independently owned, but today there are boutique hotel chains, such as Kimpton hotels and Starwood’s Ws. Marriott is launching a boutique brand called Edition. Resort: Offers on-site leisure activities related to location along with overnight accommodations. Types include ski resorts,
golf resorts, beach resorts, lake resorts and spa resorts. Per-person rates at all-inclusive resorts cover meals. Some resort rates include activities like kayaking, canoeing or tennis; others add fees for equipment rentals, lessons, excursions and access to facilities. Resorts can range from rustic lodges to luxury hotels. Motel: Designed for travelers who need lodging on or near roadways, with free outdoor parking but limited services and amenities. Rooms are often accessed through outside doors rather than interior hallways. The word comes from “motor hotel.” Ratings: A system for evaluating lodging quality, usually on a scale of one to five, with five the most luxurious. Some countries, like China, have government standards for hotels with strict definitions for ratings, but there are no uniform standards in the U.S. However, many in the U.S. lodging industry use a star rating system introduced in 1958 by the Mobil Travel Guide, which was rebranded as the Forbes Travel Guide in 2009. This system — described at http://www. startle.com/about/ratings/ — reserves five stars for extremely luxurious properties with numerous amenities and superlative service. Forbes is notoriously selective, giving five stars to just 59 hotels around the world and four stars to 176 properties. AAA’s rating system uses diamonds rather than
stars — http://www.AAA. com/Diamonds — and is also widely known. AAA rates many more locations and types of hotels — some 32,000 — than Forbes, and AAA’s printed guidebooks, free to members, are still widely used by road-trippers. A hotel that gets three diamonds from AAA is usually nice but not luxurious, offering a fitness center and a restaurant at a minimum. Priceline.com readers use the website’s star ratings to book hotels through its “Name Your Own Price” system without knowing which hotel they’ll get. “We realize star levels carry certain expectations,” said spokesman Brian Ek. For example, “to earn three stars, a property must offer a 24-hour front desk, on-site dining, business services, remote controlled TV with premium channels, a telephone with voicemail, a radio alarm clock, iron and ironing board, and a hairdryer in the room.” Priceline customers are sent a survey after each stay, and if satisfaction ratings for a hotel drop, Priceline will re-evaluate the star rating. But ratings can vary widely by source, even for the same hotel brand. “AAA will rank many Doubletree hotels as three-diamond and a few as four-diamond,” said David Sangree, president of Hotel & Leisure Advisors. “Some are really nice and some are kind of average. Days Inns also have a wide range of hotels, with

A primer on hotel categories, star ratings By Beth J. Harpaz
Saturday, April 28, 2012
some that are really nice and many, not so nice. They’re ranked as twoand three-star.” And contrary to what many consumers may think, a one-star or onediamond hotel, if rated by a reputable source, is not a fleabag. It simply offers fewer amenities and services. “People may think if a place only got one diamond, it can’t be any good,” said Todd Cronson, regional manager for AAA Tourism Information Development. “That couldn’t be further from the truth. Maybe the lighting styles are out of date, maybe the furniture is older, but if it got a diamond from us, it’s perfectly clean, safe and well-maintained.” AAA and Forbes send inspectors incognito to rate the hotels they list. But many websites rely on consumer reviews for hotel ratings. TripAdvisor ratings are all generated by travelers and tend to reflect enthusiasm and satisfaction with a hotel, not whether there is room service or a restaurant. “The top-rated properties on TripAdvisor are not necessarily the most opulent or luxurious for a particular destination, but typically provide outstanding service and value,” said TripAdvisor spokesman Brooke Ferencsik. Ratings also don’t always correlate with price. A four-star hotel in a small city could easily charge less than a two-star hotel in Manhattan or in a beach town in the summer.
Cecil and Kay Wehr
Cecil and Kay Wehr, Lawrence, will celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary with family and friends in June. Kay Wilder and Cecil Wehr were married on April 28, 1962, at St. Mary’s Parish in Oskaloosa, Iowa. Cecil is now retired after working most of his career as a forklift mechanic out of the Lawrence and Topeka area and in Des Moines, Iowa. Kay has operated an in-home daycare throughout her career. They have been foster parents to over 40
newborns through Catholic Charities. The couple have three sons, Christopher and wife Sandra, Lee’s Summit, Mo., Chad and wife Esther, Olathe, and Craig wife Ashley, Wellsville; four daughters, Teresa Wehr, Glendale, Ariz., Laura Van Alstine, Lawrence, Marlena Manternach and husband Neil, Monticello, Iowa, and Valarie Rooks and husband Michael, Kailua, Hawaii; 11 grandchildren; and a great-granddaughter. The couple requests no gifts.
1 billion tourists to cross borders this year The U.N.’s World Trade Organization says 1 billion people will cross international borders as tourists this year for the first time. The WTO’s regional director for the Americas, Carlos Vogeler, predicted Wednesday that the milestone will be reached in the fall. That figure would be about 4 percent higher than last year’s total. Back in 1950, the figure was 25 million. The UN counts only people who stay at least one night. It does not include cruise ship passengers. “It is quite iconic when you realize 1 billion people crossed borders,” Vogeler
said at a Caribbean Hotel and Tourism Association conference in Puerto Rico. “It shows from a sociological point of view how things have changed. If you go back 20-30 years, many people would die without traveling more than 100 miles from home.” The WTO plans a celebration, and may even try to designate someone as the billionth tourist, when the number is hit. The organization also projects that there will be 1.4 billion in 2020 and 1.8 billion in 2030. The top three destination countries now are France, the U.S. and China.

Dear Annie: I am 57 and single. I truly regret leaving my husband of only three years, but he never wanted to spend time with me, did not communicate, drank beer all the time and spent every day in the garage working on ship models. My life was easy with him. I didn’t have to do anything but show him affection. I loved him and still do, but I thought I would be happier finding someone I could talk to and do things with. I was married for 34 years to my first husband, and he ended up falling in love with my sister. How do I get over my second husband and all the regret of leaving him? I told him I made a terrible mistake, but all he said was I should have thought of that earlier. I asked whether I could have two days a month with him. He replied that we could be friends, but nothing more.

I have begun dating again and met a guy I liked initially, but everyone tells me I’d be jumping from the frying pan into the fire. He is controlling and tells me that I “need” to do this and “need” to think that. He says he loves me, but I can’t handle all the arguing over stupid things when we disagree. He thinks the world is out to get him. He doesn’t even shower unless I tell him to. I have sought counseling, and was told not to move in with my new boyfriend. But it hurts
Cable TV: all over but the shouting “Flipped Off” 8 p.m. Saturday, A&E) becomes the latest series to celebrate real estate speculation during the worst housing market since the Great Depression. It’s yet another reality show hosted by a “star” from another reality show. And it joins the burgeoning genre that I like to call “Angry Guys Screaming at Each Other.” Host Russell Hantz earned the nickname “Master Manipulator” on three seasons of “Survivor.” He seems perfectly typecast as the annoying sidekick, but on “Flipped,” he’s the voice of reason. He and his older brother, Shawn, want to buy modest and dated-looking houses, spiff them up and resell them for a tidy profit. They’re assisted by Kristen, a perky real estate agent who is savvy about the market and doesn’t mind renovating with a sledgehammer while tottering on high heels. Kristen suggests that potential homebuyers should hire a professional inspector. Common sense would suggest this as well. But Shawn disagrees, convincing Russell during several loud exchanges that they could save money by allowing Shawn to do the inspections. You don’t need to be a contractor or a clairvoyant to predict what happens next. The screaming-guy cable genre cuts across occupations, classes and regions. There are workingclass screamers, chef screamers, Cajun screamers, exterminator screamers, Alaskan screamers, redneck screamers and Italianstereotype screamers. And it’s not limited to guys. The exchanges on “Jersey Shore” are not exactly sotto voce. Nor are the tirades of “The Real Housewives.” And it’s not limited to television. Rap music and talk radio may occupy opposite ends of the pop culture spectrum, but they’re often insecure, angry manifestos and monologues delivered by men at maximum volume. And couldn’t that also describe a lot of stand-up comedy of the past quarter century? Cable shows are only the latest example of a fractured pop culture market, where you have to holler to get noticed. No wonder there’s such a market for those noise-canceling headphones.

to let him go. I am so overwhelmed and don’t know what to do. Please help — Washington Dear Washington: Take a deep breath, and stop chasing after the men in your life. Your new boyfriend is not the right guy, and the sooner you break it off the better. Yes, it will hurt, but not as much as it would if you stayed with him. Your ex-husband has made it clear that he is no longer interested, and frankly, you didn’t seem happy with him, either. Please use this time to figure out what you want from a relationship.

mother and wife. The problem? Absolutely nothing. We love each other more than anything and get along great. In 10 years, we’ve never even raised our voices.
