DEATHS Dr. Julian Charles “J” Holtzman Dr. Julian Charles “J” Holtzman, professor emeritus of the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Kansas, passed away Monday, April 23, 2012, after an extended hospital stay in Austin, TX. He was born August 14, 1935, on Staten Island, NY. He is survived by his wife of 37 years, Aline Holtzman, of the home; step-son and daughter-in-law, Tom Bryce and Linda Samson-Talleur, of Lawrence, KS; step-son, Steve Holtzman of Joshua Tree, CA; and grandson, Sumner Holtzman of Edmond, OK. He is also survived by a sister and brother-in-law, Suressa Holtzman Forbes and Richard Forbes of Rochester, NY; and several nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his first wife, Hannah Elizabeth (Betty) Wasch; his father, Harris Holtzman; and his mother, Frances Weis Holtzman. J attended Cornell University, and then Brooklyn Poly Tech, where he graduated with his bachelor’s in electrical engineering in 1958. He completed his masters in engineering at UCLA in 1962. He worked for Hughes Aircraft and Lockheed, before returning to the East Coast to Cornell University, where he earned his Ph.D. in electrical engineering in 1967. Returning to California, he taught at San Jose State for a short time. After spending a year in Peru with his first wife Betty (now deceased), J began his long teaching career at the University of Kansas in 1969. During his tenure, he was faculty advisor/mentor to many students whom he regarded as close friends until the very end. As chairman of the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department, he worked tirelessly to improve programs for undergraduate and graduate students alike, seeking funding to ensure scholarships and employment

for students. His last few professional years were spent at KU’s Edwards Campus in Overland Park, KS, teaching Systems Engineering Management. He always said that he learned more from the practicing engineering students than he taught them! Among the most beloved things in J’s life were his dogs. He had a lifelong love affair with German Shepherds. He leaves behind Remi, who gave him the will to get up when he was down, and to play when he had nothing left. His only grandchild, Sumner, is a chip off the old block. Through J’s experience of Sumner’s birth and life, a once grouchy curmudgeon was transformed irrevocably into a grandfatherly mush pie! “Grumps” took great delight in bragging about Sumner, harassing him, and loving him beyond imagination. In 2005, J and wife Aline left Kansas for the Hill Country of Texas. He loved Austin and his quiet home on Lake Travis, where the deer meandered daily in the yard. J adopted the popular mantra “I wasn’t born in Texas, but I got here as soon as I could!” A Celebration of Life will be held Saturday, May 19th, at the Adams Alumni Center, 1266 Oread Ave, Lawrence, KS, 66045-3169, 785-864-4760, 1:00 – 3:00 p.m. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests donations to one of the following: Hospice Austin, 4107 Spicewood Springs Road Suite 100, Austin, TX, 78759 or Austin German Shepherd Dog Rescue (AGSDR) and mail to: c/o Anne Burkett P.O.

2 teachers awarded Golden Apples Prairie Park School secondgrade teacher Christine Wesley and a Free State High School social studies teacher Andrew Nussbaum won the Lawrence Schools Foundation’s Golden Apple Awards. The teachers received the award and a $1,500 cash stipend during the annual Foundation Follies held April 20. The two educators were nominated by their students, parents, teaching colleagues and school administrators for their dedication and service to Lawrence children. Wesley has taught in the Lawrence school district for 14 years, first at the former Riverside School. She has been at Prairie Park since 2002. Wesley’s teaching style has been described as enthusiastic, encouraging and engaging. One parent, Becky Rogers, described her classroom as “warm and caring.” Nussbaum joined the social studies department at Free State in 2006 and has been praised for his ability to change the climate and culture of the building through his Interpersonal Skills course. The social studies class brings together general- and special-education students to learn about social awareness and other topics. The course has brought students together that “never would have made event the slightest connection to one another,” said teaching colleague Chuck Law, who nominated him for the award.

After four years of fundraising, Kansas University leaders announced Saturday night that they hope an ongoing campaign will raise $1.2 billion for the school, adding that they are already halfway toward that goal. The campaign, Far Above: The Campaign for Kansas, publicly launched Saturday at a donors-only event at Allen Fieldhouse. KU leaders said that, especially in a time where KANSAS state and federal UNIVERSITY government resources are holding steady or dwindling, private donations are becoming increasingly important for universities. “Reaching this goal will help very much in enabling the university to achieve success in what we want to achieve,” said KU Chancellor Bernadette Gray-Little. She said that in addition to the traditional sorts of ways universities use private funds — scholarships, faculty professorships, and new and renovated buildings — the school would look for other ways to expand opportunities for students, particularly in areas

TOPEKA (AP) — More than 200 advocates for abortion rights and other causes rallied Saturday at the Kansas Statehouse. The “We are Women” event Saturday was one of multiple rallies around the country. The rally came as state legislators are considering a bill giving greater legal protection to health care providers who refuse to participate in abortions or dispense abortion-inducing drugs.

KU students have a new place to tailgate on gamedays: the corner of Fambrough and Fambrough. Stretches of two streets northwest of Kansas University’s Memorial Stadium were renamed in honor of former KU football coach Don Fambrough. A parcel of 11th Street,

such as study abroad and undergraduate research. More than half of the money, $612 million, has already been raised. Support for the school’s National Cancer Institute drive has been a major hallmark of the funding. A fundraising council in Kansas City helped generate $62 million for the cause, and more money has been contributed since the group concluded its work before the school applied for designation in September, including a $10.5 million gift from the Hall Family Foundation in February. Other donations include a $32 million gift from the estate of Charles E. and Mary Jane Bruckmiller Spahr for scholarships, programs and professorships for the school, and a $5 million lead gift from Chesapeake Energy Corp. in Oklahoma City in support of a $28 million expansion Lindley It’s very for Hall. rewarding The camis and very paign s c h e d u l e d exciting as to continue an oppor- t h r o u g h tunity to June 2016. impact the T h r e e l u m n i institution acouples are in a signifi- i n v o l v e d cant way.” in leadership of the campaign: — Dale Kurt and Seuferling, Sue Watpresident of the son of AnKU Endowment dover, who Association are serving as chairs of the campaign, and co-chairs Mark and Stacy Parkinson of Potomac, Md., and Tom and Jill Docking of Wichita. “I think that we should feel very good about where we are in the campaign,” Kurt Watson said. “And in particular if you think about the economic period, we are working our way through.” Gray-Little and other academic leaders have created a wish list associated with the campaign that includes many bigticket items. The School of Business is hoping to fund a new building, an expanding School of Engineering is looking for more construction funding and the Spencer Museum of Art is trying to fund an expansion, too. Dale Seuferling, president of the KU Endowment Association, said that while buildings often stand as permanent reminders of how universities can use private funds, much of the effort will be focused on things that people can’t see as they walk down the street. “People can see and experience the capital proj-

as the ideal individual to lead the school during this transition,” said KU Provost and Executive Vice Chancellor Jeffrey Vitter in the release.

KU fundraising campaigns through the years Fundraising campaigns have come a long way since Kansas University’s first comprehensive campaign, Program for Progress, which started in 1964 with an original goal of $18 million. Today’s Far Above: The Campaign for Kansas hopes to raise $1.2 billion. Here’s a look at the university’s three previous campaigns:

Program for Progress The campaign began in 1964 and continued through 1969, surpassing its original $18 million goal, reaching $21 million. The university used unrestricted funds from the campaign to purchase the former Chamney Dairy property at Bob Billings Parkway and Kasold Avenue, land along Oread Avenue and a portion of the cost of the Kansas Geological Survey building. Gifts included:

A gift from Helen Foresman Spencer that led to the construction of Spencer Research Library.

Support from the John T. Stewart family that built a children’s institute as an addition to Haworth Hall.

Irene Nunemaker provided funds to build Nunemaker Center, which today houses the university’s honors program.

James Hershberger donated money that led to construction of an allweather track at Memorial Stadium for the 1970 Kansas Relays. Campaign Kansas The campaign ran from July 1, 1987, through June 30, 1992. It raised $265.3 million, exceeding its $177 million goal. Gifts included:

A gift from the Lied Foundation Trust to construct the Lied Center of Kansas.

K.K. and Margaret Amini provided funds ects,” he said. “But the bulk of the funding goes to support people and programs.” The campaign’s goals are:

$175 million for facilities.

In a federal complaint filed this month, the Kansas Department of Health and Environment and the U.S. Department of the Interior accused the Wilmington, Del.-based chemical giant of violating the Clean Water Act with mining pollution in Cherokee County. A 115-mile swath of Cherokee County has been a federal Superfund pollution cleanup site since the 1980s and was divided into sub-sections. DuPont operated a mine in one of the sub-sections, called the Waco sub-site, according to the complaint. The Cherokee County site includes contamination from mine waste in several former mining locations and is part of an area that was once among the world’s highest lead and zinc producers. The complaint said the 560-acre Waco section about 11 miles south of Pittsburg continues to discharge hazardous substances, including lead, cadmium and zinc, polluting the area’s soil and groundwater.

Q:

Who is responsible for repairs to the gutter between a driveway and the street? Not the curb on either side of the driveway but the portion of the gutter that the vehicles cross to get into the driveway — in my case, the crater. The city website has forms to report gutters and potholes but neither seem specific to this situation.

A:

Megan Gilliland, the city’s communications manager, provided this information: Typically the city is responsible for curbs including the section in front of a driveway. However, if the driveway was not installed to city specifications and does not have an isolated curb section, it would become the responsibility of the property owner. Contact the Street Division, 832-3031, so crews can review your situation.

GOP follows Romney’s lead in parrying Dems By Andrew Taylor Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Now that Mitt Romney has emerged as the likely GOP presidential nominee, congressional Republicans increasingly are taking their cues from him even if it causes heartburn and grumbling among conservatives unhappy about having to beat a tactical retreat. That dynamic was on full display last week as House Speaker John Boehner coped with the dust-up generated by President Barack Obama over student loans and Senate GOP leader Mitch McConnell sidestepped Democratic attempts to brand Republicans as soft on the issue of violence against women. It’s a defensive game for Republicans, determined to avoid their stumbles last year when they lost the political battle over renewing Obama’s payroll tax cut. “Some folks in an election year would say you need to take tough issues off the table,” said Rep. Rob Woodall, R-Ga. “Other folks in an election year say you need to bring your best solutions to the toughest issues, and I’m in that latter camp.” The matter of student loan interest rates was on

Obama pokes fun at Secret Service, GOP WASHINGTON — This year’s primaries, the 2008 primaries, the General Services Administration scandal, even the Secret Service and Donald Trump were targets for President Barack Obama’s scattershot humor at Saturday night’s celebrity studded White House Correspondents Dinner. Even the entrance to his speech was part of his schtick. The president walked off stage just before he took the podium with an alleged “hot mic,” making fun of getting caught last month on an open microphone with Russian President Dmitry Medvedev. Once on stage, the president revisited last year’s dinner, which took place as Navy SEALS were dispatched to capture and kill Osama bin Laden. “Last year at this time, this very weekend, we finally delivered justice to one of the world’s most notorious individuals,” Obama said. Then a picture of real estate mogul Donald Trump appeared on the room’s television monitors. The president last year delivered a scathing roast of Trump, who flirted with running for the Republican nomination and claimed he had solved the “mystery” of Obama’s birth certificate. Obama also took a shot at the Republican congressional leadership, whom he thanked “for taking time from their exhausting schedule of not passing any laws” to attend the dinner.

Romney Boehner the back burner until barely a week ago when the White House elevated it to the top of its agenda. Obama pounded away during visits to university campuses in North Carolina, Iowa and Colorado, pivotal states in the November election. Interest rates are scheduled to double, from 3.4 percent to 6.8 percent, on July 1 because of a quirk in a law Democrats muscled through Congress five years ago. Romney on Monday endorsed the $6 billion move to forestall the interest rate increase, even before Obama had arrived at the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill. Boehner quickly set a vote, using unspent money

from Obama’s unpopular health care law to pay for the plan. By Friday, the issue was mostly deflated. The vote, however, put Republicans at odds with the Club For Growth, which urged lawmakers to oppose the legislation. The group sometimes uses its fundraising power to back primary challengers to GOP incumbents. Boehner, R-Ohio, accused Obama of manufacturing the issue. “The president keeps attempting to invent these fake fights because he doesn’t have a record of success or a positive agenda for our country,” the speaker said. “It is as simple as this: The emperor has no clothes.” In fact, Republicans had invited a fight by failing to address the issue before Obama raised it. Their budget blueprint last month assumed the interest rate subsidy would expire.

Man key to LMH turnaround retires By Karrey Britt kbritt@ljworld.com

For the past 13 years, Simon Scholtz has worked quietly in the administrative offices at Lawrence Memorial Hospital where he has played an integral part in improving its financial status. “He’s not a table pounder. He just goes about his business. He doesn’t make waves, but the results speak so loud,” said Chuck Heath, LMH finance committee chairman. Scholtz was hired in March 1999 as chief financial officer. In 1998, LMH had an operating income loss of $2 million. The following year, LMH has profits of $1.3 million and then consistently improved its operating margin despite a worsening economy. In 2011, it had $9.5 million in operating income — a 600 percent increase from when Scholtz started. During Scholtz’s tenure, the hospital also has received three credit rating upgrades from Moody’s Investors Service, with the last one coming right before his retirement, which was Friday. “The bond upgrade we got last week was clear out of left field. We didn’t ask for it. We didn’t beg for it,” Heath said. “Moody’s said the results are so good that we just can’t ignore you guys, as small as you may be, and to me that’s the epitome of Simon.”

 

During a recent interview in his office, Scholtz, 66, talked about his career, family and even offered some financial advice. “You’ve got to save, and you’ve got to live within your means,” he said. Simon was born and raised in San Antonio, and he earned a bachelor’s degree in accounting from the University of Houston. “When I needed an A in college to make sure I kept a good grade-point average, I took a math class,” he said. “I loved math. The way I look at it, the numbers tell a story. They are like reading a book. All you have to do is try to understand what they mean and what they are saying and they can be very interesting.” His first job was working as a junior auditor at a 500-bed charity hospital in Houston. His office was located next to the clinic and he said a woman gave birth right outside his door during his first week on the job. “I didn’t know anything, but that matured me real fast,” he said, with laughter. The chief accountant quit about a month later, and the administration asked if Scholtz wanted the job. “I hadn’t done anything except put checks in order, so I proceeded to spend days and nights having to track everything,” he said. “Now this was before computers, so everything was manual. The books were kept in a big safe and I was the only

one with the combination to the safe, and so I had to learn all of that.” He soon moved on to become controller for the Memorial Hermann Healthcare System in Houston and then later became CFO of Baylor Medical Center in Irving, Texas. He worked there for 12 years before he landed the job at LMH. “I started looking around, and this job came open, and we had never been north of the Red River, so never been out of Texas,” he said. “We came for a visit, and it seemed like a wonderful place to bring a family.”

  

Scholtz said the financial turnaround that LMH has experienced has been a team effort from the CEO to the food service department to nurses. He said there have been several factors that have led to its success. First, the hospital got out from under its Health Maintenance Organization insurance plan, which was losing money. They worked out a deal with Blue Cross Blue Shield to assume coverage for the plan’s participants. Next, he said, they hired consultants to help with computer problems they had with accounts receivable software so they could start getting payments for patient services that they were providing. Then they expanded outpatient services and opened LMH South and primary care offices in communities surrounding Lawrence. Scholtz said this helped grow the hospital’s revenues. In 2006, Moody’s upgraded LMH’s credit rating so it was able to issue bonds that allowed it to do a $40 million expansion at the hospital that included the surgery department, emergency room and intensive care unit. They also remodeled the maternity suite and added a nursing unit. “The main thing we did was go to mostly private rooms for patients,” he said. During the past few years, Scholtz said, the hospital has added more physician practices, such as a cardiology group and internal medicine group. The hospital went from 135,124 patient visits in 1999 to 222,750 in 2011, a 64 percent increase. During the growth, Scholtz said, Moody’s Investors Service warned them that most hospitals struggle financially after such construction and staff expansions. But they proved them wrong. “Our CEO is a very strong administrator and the organization has done a great job of controlling its costs, and that’s probably one of the bigger reasons as to why we’ve been successful,” he said. The other reason: community support. He said

SIMON SCHOLTZ, Lawrence Memorial Hospital’s chief financial officer for 13 years, retired Friday. He was one of the key players in the hospital’s financial turnaround. the hospital has had great donors and volunteers. He said that when he first started, he would hear grumblings about the quality of care at LMH, but he doesn’t hear that anymore. Instead, he said people approach him and share their positive personal stories. “Nothing makes you prouder than having your company talked about like that,” he said. “You can’t buy that. It’s priceless.” While Scholtz is humble about his involvement in the turnaround, his colleagues say otherwise. As CFO, he’s in charge of budgeting, the billing and collection process, purchasing, materials management and investing. “I think the leadership at LMH, and particularly Simon, was able to define the challenges that we had and then put into place systems to very aggressively correct that,” LMH President and CEO Gene Meyer said. He described Scholtz as “the nicest person in the world” and someone with a lot of integrity. “It’s been a really good run,” Meyer said. “He will be greatly missed.”

 

Scholtz said his colleagues have joked with him about bailing out before the full effects of federal health reform are in place.

“I’ve assured them the timing is just right,” he said, with a big smile. He said it’s not the first time that hospitals have feared closure because of government regulations. Many thought they would go broke when the Medicare program was created in 1965. Scholtz also recalled sitting around a table in the 1970s at the Texas Hospital Association trying to figure out how many years it would be before Social Security went broke. They were estimating it would be seven years. “It was never going to last this long and now we are saying that it will last into the 2020s,” he said. “The point is the government can fix that stuff or at least change the rules a little to keep extending and that’s what always happens.” He expects the rules will be bent again when it comes to health reform. “The problem is surviving through those years until they adjust it, and that’s why the improvement in our position now is so important for the community,” he said.

 

Scholtz and his wife, Pam, are moving to Denton, Texas, to be closer to their children and grandchildren. When he talks about his family, his face lights up. He believes his retirement days will be filled with family, golf, long walks, travel and volunteering. He even plans to catch the Jayhawks whenever they are playing in the area. “We will probably get to see more games there than we did here to tell you the truth,” he said.

Needed change The best news that could come out of this year’s contentious redistricting process would be passage of a measure to put future redistricting into the hands of an independent commission.

R

epublican leaders in the Kansas Senate want to strike while the iron is hot on a proposal to turn the legislative and congressional redistricting process over to a bipartisan commission. The redistricting process is particularly hot in Kansas this year, and Senate leaders who visited the Journal-World on Tuesday say they have had enough with the contentious process. Even though they are members of the majority party that largely controls redistricting, they are ready to pass the responsibility off to an independent commission. They are proposing a constitutional amendment that would set up an independent redistricting commission and hope to have it on the ballot in November while the 2012 redistricting battle is still fresh in voters’ minds. According to the National Conference of State Legislatures, 21 states already have commissions that have primary responsibility for redistricting. The commissions are appointed and function in various ways, but several are similar to the plan being proposed for Kansas. Senators say their constitutional amendment will call for a five-member commission that will submit redistricting plans to the Legislature for an up-or-down vote. The House and Senate minority and majority leaders each would make one appointment to the commission, and the fifth member would be chosen by a vote of the other four. Kansas reportedly is the only state in the country still working on redrawing districts based on the 2010 Census. The politics of redistricting has been complicated this year by splits in the state Republican Party. Delays in redistricting are threatening to set back filing deadlines and state primary elections because potential candidates still don’t know for sure what districts they live in. In the meantime, a process that should have been settled months ago is contributing to a contentious atmosphere in the Legislature as it seeks to complete its work on a host of important state issues. As Senate Vice President John Vratil, R-Leawood, told the Journal-World last week, “The acrimony over redistricting casts a pall over every issue.” Both the House and Senate have passed congressional maps that have been rejected by the other chamber. The House has passed a plan to redraw its own districts, but the Senate is still working on its plan. By tradition both chambers handle their own redistricting maps, which are routinely accepted by the other chamber. This year, House Speaker Mike O’Neal has threatened to reject the Senate’s map if it doesn’t suit the House, a move that almost certainly would ignite the already heated redistricting process. Amid the current redistricting battle, a proposal to turn the process over to an independent commission is tantalizing. An amendment to create the commission must pass both the House and Senate by two-thirds majorities before advancing to the November ballot, which will be a tall order. That’s why it’s important for Kansans to tell their elected legislators that they also have had enough of this contentious and distracting process and are ready to join the 21 other states that have changed the way they do redistricting.

Caro caps LBJ biography series WASHINGTON — Around noon on Saturday, Nov. 23, 1963, almost exactly 24 hours after the assassination in Dallas, while the president’s casket lay in the East Room of the White House, Arthur Schlesinger, John Kennedy’s kept historian, convened a lunch at Washington’s Occidental restaurant with some other administration liberals. Their purpose was to discuss how to deny the 1964 Democratic presidential nomination to the new incumbent, Lyndon Johnson, and instead run a ticket of Attorney General Robert Kennedy and Sen. Hubert Humphrey. This example of the malignant malice of some liberals against the president who became 20th-century liberalism’s most consequential adherent is described in Robert Caro’s “The Passage of Power,” the fourth and, he insists, penultimate volume in his “The Years of Lyndon Johnson,” which when completed will rank as America’s most ambitiously conceived, assiduously researched and compulsively readable political biography. The new volume arrives 30 years after the first, and its timing is serendipitous: Are you seeking an antidote to current lamentations about the decline of political civility? Immerse yourself in Caro’s cringe-inducing catalog of humiliations, gross and petty, inflicted on Johnson by many New Frontiersmen, and with obsessive hatred by Robert Kennedy.

Immerse yourself in Caro’s cringe-inducing catalog of humiliations, gross and petty, inflicted on Johnson by many New Frontiersmen, and with obsessive hatred by Robert Kennedy.” Caro demonstrates that when, at the Democrats’ 1960 Los Angeles convention, John Kennedy selected Johnson, an opponent for the nomination, as his running mate, Robert Kennedy worked with furious dishonesty against his brother, trying to convince Johnson to decline. Had Robert succeeded, his brother almost certainly would have lost Texas, and perhaps both Carolinas and Louisiana — President Eisenhower had carried five of the 11 Confederate states in 1956 — and the election. Johnson, one of the few presidents who spent most of their adult lives in Washington, had no idea how to win the presidency. Convinced that the country was as mes-

merized as Washington is by the Senate, Johnson did not formally announce his candidacy until six days before the 1960 convention. Johnson did, however, know how to use the presidency. Almost half the book covers the 47 days between the assassination and Johnson’s Jan. 8 State of the Union address. In that span he began breaking the congressional logjam against liberal legislation that had existed since 1938 when the nation, recoiling against Franklin Roosevelt’s plan to “pack” the Supreme Court, produced a durable congressional coalition of Republicans and Southern Democrats. Caro is properly enthralled by Johnson putting the power of the presidency behind a discharge petition that, by advancing, compelled a Southern committee chairman to allow what became the 1964 Civil Rights Act to get to the Senate, where Johnson’s meticulous cultivation of another Southern chairman prevented tax cut legislation from becoming hostage to the civil rights filibuster. Caro astringently examines Johnson’s repulsive venality (regarding his Texas broadcasting properties) and bullying (notably of Texas journalists, through their employers) but devotes ample pages to honoring Johnson as the most exemplary political leader since Lincoln regarding race. As vice president, he refused to attend the 400th

anniversary of the founding of St. Augustine, Fla., unless the banquet would be integrated — and not, he insisted, with a “Negro table” off to the side. He said civil rights legislation would “say to the Mexican in California or the Negro in Mississippi or the Oriental on the West Coast or the Johnsons in Johnson City that we are going to treat you all equally and fairly.” Caro never loses sight of the humiliations and insecurities that were never far from Johnson’s mind. Caro is a conventional liberal of the Great Society sort but is also a valuable anachronism, a historian who rejects the academic penchant for history “with the politics left out.” These historians consider it elitist and anti-democratic to focus on event-making individuals; they deny that a pre-eminent few have disproportionate impact on the destinies of the many; they present political events as “epiphenomena,” reflections of social “structures” and results of impersonal forces. Caro’s event-making Johnson is a very personal force. Samuel Johnson said of Milton’s “Paradise Lost” that no one ever wished it longer. Not so Caro’s great work, which already fills 3,388 pages. When his fifth volume, treating the Great Society and Vietnam, arrives, readers’ gratitude will be exceeded only by their regret that there will not be a sixth. — George Will is a columnist for Washington Post Writers Group.

A railroad crossing in North Lawrence that had been the site of a YEARS fatal train-car colAGO lision in March had IN 1987 been approved for lighted crossing signals, according to state and railroad officials today. The new signals, to be installed in 12 to 18 months, were to upgrade the crossing, which was then only marked with the standard crossbuck railroad crossing sign.

No peace without justice Twenty years ago today, my hometown burned. I had moved to Miami the year before and there is, let me tell you, something surreal about watching on television from a continent away as places you’ve been and streets you know are smashed and burned. The Los Angeles riots happened because justice did not. They happened because a white jury in the far flung suburb of Simi Valley looked at video of four white cops bludgeoning a black drunk driving suspect, Rodney G. King, so viciously that even Chief of Police Daryl F. Gates said it made him sick — and yet, pronounced them not guilty of any crime. To acknowledge this is not to lionize the rioters. You do not lionize 54 deaths and a billion dollars in property damage. You do not lionize what almost killed Reginald Denny, beaten nearly to death for the “crime” of being in the wrong place at the wrong time with the wrong color skin. But one need not lionize the rioters’ method of expression to empathize with the message they expressed. Namely, a certain frustration, a certain sickness at heart, a certain outrage at being betrayed by justice — again. It is an experience far older than the L.A. riots — and as relevant as the shooting of Trayvon Martin. On the surface, perhaps, the two incidents have little in common: the then-27-year-old drunkard beaten so badly after a high speed chase that his body and mind still bear the scars, and the unarmed 17-year-old boy shot to death by a neighborhood watch-

Such people, Martin Luther King once observed, mistake silence for peace. Silence is not peace.” man who thought him suspicious because he was dawdling and looking around. They are not dissimilar, however, in one telling aspect: delay. It took a ruinous riot and a new federal trial for Rodney King to receive anything approaching justice. It took 46 days, uncounted public demonstrations and the appointment of a special prosecutor for that process even to begin for Trayvon Martin. Historically, that has always been the problem when African Americans seek redress of grievances pregnant with racial overtones. Justice comes slowly, grudgingly, and grumblingly, when it comes at all. I hear all these warnings not to “rush to judgment” in the Martin case, and it is sage advice. Yet I find myself wondering: when is the last time I saw anyone who is not black look at one of those episodes where the justice system failed African-American people — look at Trayvon, look at Jena, La., look at Tulia, Texas, look at Amadou Diallo, look at Abner

Louima — and say, unprompted and unambiguously, that thus and so happened because of race. Outside of the most far-left liberals, they seldom do. Even when it is as obvious as a cockroach on white satin, it is something most cannot bring themselves to admit. And yes, I know someone wishes I should just shut up about it. I hear that a lot. Indeed, more than once, someone has actually told me there’d be no racial problems in this country “if you didn’t talk about it.” What a piece of logic that is: ignore it and it will go away. Such people, Martin Luther King once observed, mistake silence for peace. Silence is not peace. As we count the lessons we have learned since L.A. burned, count that as one of the lessons we have not. Here is another: Justice too long delayed is justice denied. As protesters often put it: “No justice, no peace.” Sometimes, I wonder if some of us really understand what that means. With the L.A. riots now 20 years behind us and the Martin case before us, it is a good time to consider those words afresh, consider them in light of our noble ideals and too-frequent failings, consider them as if it were you, looking for recourse after justice failed you — again. Because, you see, that slogan is not a threat. It’s not a prediction. It’s not even a warning.“No justice, no peace” is a certainty. — Leonard Pitts Jr. is a columnist for the Miami Herald.

Several resolutions were approved at a meeting by the Haskell YEARS Indian Junior AGO College Board IN 1972 of Regents. The resolutions called for Haskell to be placed under the supervision of the central Bureau of Indian Affairs office in Washington. This would involve removing the college from the authority of the BIA’s area office in Oklahoma. Additional resolutions called for the implementation of an “Indian studies program,” a review of the contract awarding and employment policies “to insure complete and adequate consideration of Indian contractors,” and that a technical adviser be requested to serve the board. The establishment of an ROTC program on campus was also approved.

For 30 years, crisis center director has held dear the ‘right to be listened to’ By Shaun Hittle sdhittle@ljworld.com

It’s 1 a.m. on a recent weeknight, and Marcia Epstein, executive director of Headquarters Counseling Center, a 24-hour Lawrence crisis counseling center, has her hands full, literally and figuratively. For the past 45 minutes, she’s been on the phone, talking on and off with a teenage girl concerned about a friend who may have overdosed on a medication. At the same time, Epstein is helping field other crisis calls, juggling multiple phones. She’s “prioritizing the calls,” she explains in the seconds when she’s not on the line. A young man also has been calling on and off for help handling the death of several friends and relatives, but he isn’t suicidal. So Epstein has no choice but to calmly ask him to call back, so she can tend to the possible overdose, which could be a lifethreatening situation. It’s a quick start to the overnight shift, and she has seven hours to go. Isn’t it a little unusual for the executive director of a nonprofit to be working the overnight shift? “This is a team place,” Epstein says of the nonprofit she’s headed since 1979.

“There are times when people need support. Everyone should have access to that.” ‘Separation anxiety’ Even Epstein’s dog leans on her for psychological support. Beau, an English springer spaniel, comes to work with Epstein some days. “Separation anxiety,” says Epstein, as Beau follows her around the small, quirky office. Stuffed animals, cartoon strips and abstract art line the walls and desks. Through the years, Headquarters has changed locations, but Epstein has been the constant. She signed up to volunteer with the nonprofit in 1975 when she was a social welfare student at Kansas University. By 1979, Epstein was the executive director. She planned to stay two years.

Reflecting on her more than three decades with Headquarters, Epstein says it’s difficult not to weave in her family life with the job. She was able to bring her two sons — now 22 and 27 — to work with her when they were younger. “They grew up with this,” Epstein said. There is a life-work separation, Epstein insists, but it’s a fine one. “She is totally dedicated and has totally immersed herself in the organization,” said retired Lawrence police Capt. Dan Affalter. “Marcia is all about the center.” Affalter, who is the Headquarters board president, met Epstein when their paths crossed on the job. Epstein would show up to talk to a suicidal patient, or provide follow-up assistance to some of the cases Affalter handled. Affalter tells one particular story about Epstein that stands out. Affalter responded to a 2006 house fire on New Jersey Street in which five people, including four children, died. Family members and neighbors crowded around as police and firemen tried to work the fire investigation. Law enforcement had a job to do, but it was difficult with the obvious emotional needs of people at the scene. “I turn around, and there’s Marcia and her

He knows about the long hours, and the low pay; something both Epstein and Affalter talk about with a certain pride. Despite the extensive experience, Epstein’s $42,000 salary is one of the lowest among area nonprofit executive directors. “She’s not doing it for the money,” Affalter says.

‘Worries about possibilities’ Epstein has fielded thousands of crisis calls, and moderated countless grief and other counseling groups over the years. Thousands of stories of sexual abuse, death, pain and healing. “I absolutely do get affected by what we do,” Epstein says. “She worries about possibilities,” Affalter said of the crisis calls Epstein and her staff field. Oftentimes, there’s little way to know what type

of impact their assistance has made. Days after fielding the calls about the teenager and the possible overdose, Epstein is pleased to report that everything worked out fine, a rare assurance in her field. Talking to other social workers and psychologists — who make up most of her circle of friends — and sometimes just getting out for a walk help Epstein clear her mind and distance herself from the traumatic stories she hears day after day. Between the busy workdays and overnight shifts, there isn’t much downtime. But she and her husband, Kyle Thompson, unwind at Allen Fieldhouse, as basketball season-ticket holders. Her favorite player over the years? Sherron Collins, easily, she says. “Great team leader,” she says. Although she is not a natural basketball fan, KU sports have slowly worked their way into Epstein’s blood. “It brings together the

community,” she said. When she first came to KU, Epstein says, she had her own traumatic story to tell. Bouncing around from the Los Angeles area to Texas, and then to Kansas City, as a child, Epstein talks vaguely about an abusive and alcoholic stepfather. “It made me understand better,” Epstein said about knowing trauma firsthand. “In some ways, our harsh experiences help us.” Ask Epstein what she enjoys about the work, and she talks about the importance of the service Headquarters provides. Some people don’t have that friend to listen to, or built-in coping mechanisms to deal with trauma and pain, she said. “There are times when people need support. Everyone should have access to that,” Epstein said. “People have the right to be listened to.” — Reporter Shaun Hittle can be reached at 832-7173. Follow him at Twitter.com/shaunhittle.

Chancellor’s husband front and center, with his ‘sleeves rolled up’ By Andy Hyland ahyland@ljworld.com

It’s not unusual to find the husband of Kansas University’s chancellor just about anywhere in Lawrence, whether at a women’s basketball practice, on the board of a nonprofit, at a desk working with a student or just walking down the street. Shade Keys Little came to Lawrence from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill after his wife, KU Chancellor Bernadette Gray-Little, got the job in 2009. In North Carolina, Little served as an assistant dean for academic support services. At KU, he holds no official position with the university, serving instead as something of an ambassador for Jayhawk goodwill throughout the community. Little declined to be interviewed for this story, though he said he appreciated being included in the Only in Lawrence section. Ask around about him, and a few details come up again and again. Though Little can be found at events seemingly just about everywhere, he rarely drives, preferring to walk most places. He typically shows up in a blue collared shirt with some kind of KU logo on it, and a backpack in tow. The word “quirky” came up more than once, but always in a positive connotation. Frank Kessler, a counselor at the Learning Center at UNC, has known Little for 10 years, and often worked side-by-side with him. He remembered him as a jovial man who would often laugh and talk at the same time, to the point where you couldn’t understand what he was

“He’s ageless. He has such joie de vivre, such energy.” trying to say. But it would be a mistake to call him a clown, Kessler said. Little rarely talks about himself, Kessler said, so it’s likely that few people would know much about his background. He’s not likely to talk about his degrees — an MBA and a bachelor’s degree in mathematics, Kessler said. Or about his previous work as a trainer at IBM. Or his work as a martial arts instructor. Though he was an administrator at UNC, he eschewed any sense of hierarchy, Kessler said, preferring to work directly with students. Students were often buzzing around him everywhere he went. He was someone they could confide in, Kessler said, and he related well with them. He met his wife growing up in the rural town of Washington, N.C., Kessler said. “She has been in these kinds of positions where how you look and what you say is very important,” he said. “He’s sensitive to that, but that’s not him.” He has an interesting duality, with part of him exuding an almost childlike positive energy. “He’s ageless. He has such joie de vivre, such energy. He can be a kid,” said Lynne Green, execu-

tive director of Van Go, an arts-based social service agency for youths ages 14 to 21, where Little serves on the board. He fits right in with them, she said. “If he applied, we’d take him,” Green joked. But at the same time, he has a reputation for being someone who can get things done. Green said he’s the one who hauls the tables away from Clinton Lake after midnight when Van Go’s annual fundraiser is over. Kathy Clausing-Willis, vice president and chief development officer at Lawrence Memorial Hospital, said that, too. Little is also on the LMH Endowment Association’s board. “The thing that Shade does best is that he really likes rolling up his sleeves and doing the work,” Clausing-Willis said. He’ll help out anywhere at any time, often without being asked. He’s sat inside a ticket booth at a fundraiser, she said. He does a lot more, too. Little was photographed in red high heels for the Willow Domestic Violence Center’s annual calendar. He tutors students who need some academic help. And he shows up at practice for the KU women’s basketball team, occasionally encouraging players on the defensive end of the court. “He sits front and center,” said Bonnie Henrickson, the head coach of the KU women’s basketball team. “He’s very visible and we certainly appreciate that.” He and the chancellor both have been big supporters of women’s basketball, Henrickson said. They traveled from St. Louis on a Friday after watching the men’s team

in the Sweet 16 to watch the women’s game against Tennessee on a Saturday, and then back to St. Louis on a Sunday for the next men’s game. “I think it means a lot to the players,” Henrickson said. Angie Stewart, a case supervisor at Big Brothers Big Sisters of Douglas County, said Little helps out there, too, and has been matched with a “little.” He seems to “get it” when it comes to the program, she said, offering exactly the right kind of support. And he’s always got a sense of humor about

just about everything. He tends to make himself giggle, she said. “I’ve never met anybody quite like Shade, actually,” Stewart said. He’s also the first male officer of the University Women’s Club, which consists of employees of KU and spouses of those who work at the university. He holds the position of honorary president, a post reserved for the spouse of the chancellor. Until Gray-Little became chancellor, the post had been filled by women. Mary Beth Petr, who was president of the club when Little joined, said he stayed very active in the group.

Another thing Little does frequently, those who work with him say, is promoting the various groups he’s involved in. He can often be found with a pocketful of Van Go pins, handing them out. And Petr said he recently corralled a group of the University Women’s Club who walk together called “The Jabberwalkers.” “He wanted to recruit us,” Petr said. It worked, of course. “He signed us up for Relay for Life.” — Higher education reporter Andy Hyland can be reached at 832-6388. Follow him at Twitter.com/LJW_KU.

From humble beginnings to ‘hell of a deal’ By Chad Lawhorn clawhorn@ljworld.com

It was the type of idea that shouldn’t have survived the morning light. Sure, the idea of creating a Lawrence St. Patrick’s Day Parade sounded great when everybody was sitting around a little cocktail table passing the night away. But as the sun rose, surely the energy for the idea would empty quicker than the bottles did the night before. “I think there were some people who went home from that night and said, ‘Can you believe what we’re going to do?’” said Barbara Herbel, a longtime member of the Lawrence St. Patrick’s Day Parade Committee. Back in that magical year of 1988, though, they did it. Snowflakes as big as dinner plates, and a Lawrence couple who got married on a float, are still among the top memories mentioned from that first St. Patrick’s Day Parade. It started at The Flamingo Club — yes, the club full of exotic dancers in North Lawrence. Club owner Wes Kabler — Uncle Wesley, as committee members call him — may not be the father of this parade, but he certainly was in the room when it was born. Kabler had begun hanging around with a pair of ABC cameramen who — shock of shocks — once found themselves at the Flamingo Club while in Lawrence to cover a KU sporting event. One of the camera men was an honest-to-goodness New York Irishman who had a mouth that, when it wasn’t wrapped around a cocktail glass, was giving Kabler a hard time about how Lawrence didn’t do anything to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day. “After a couple of years of pestering, he finally got me,” Kabler said. The parade ended at the Jet Lag Lounge where, legend has it, Kabler, Jet Lag owner Mike Jones and a handful of other friends had sat around a cocktail table just a couple weeks before St. Patrick’s Day and drawn up the plans for the first parade. Back then, the parade wasn’t allowed anywhere near Massachusetts Street, instead taking a zigzag route that went through parts of Old West Lawrence. Parade No. 1 attracted about 25 floats and a lot of odd stares. Committee members remember there wasn’t much love for the event in that first year. “They just called us a bunch of drunks, and I guess they weren’t too far off,” Herbel said. “We started at a bar and we ended at a bar, and we had all our meetings at a bar. We didn’t do a very good job of hiding the fact we liked beer.” But one group liked the parade well enough” The March of Dimes. Organizers somehow ended up with $1,000 left over after the first parade. The group gave the money to the Lawrence Police Department for its help with the parade route. The Police Department instead said the money should go to the March of Dimes. The “good-time crowd” had just helped some local kids, and they decided that felt pretty good. Now, 25 parades later, the Lawrence St. Patrick’s Day Committee has raised more than $700,000 for local charities, most of them directly helping children. For that, and also for their spirit, the Lawrence St. Patrick’s Day Parade Committee has been chosen by the Journal-World as the winner of the second annual Larry Award. “This parade has provided a huge shot in the arm for an awful lot of charities in this town, especially during times like these when fundraising is really hard to come by,” said Dan Affalter, a retired police officer who

Fun-loving St. Pat’s Committee has raised serious cash for local charities in the past 25 years now serves on the board of Headquarters Counseling Center. Affalter, who nominated the committee for the Only in Lawrence Award, estimated that about $10,000 of Headquarters’ $225,000 budget will come directly from the St. Patrick’s Day Parade Committee. “I can tell you, it is much more than just a parade to us,” Affalter said.

 

Now, it has come to this. “There are only two things stopping me from cleaning your clock,” Gene Shaughnessy says to the stout fellow standing across from him. “Fear and pain.” Shaughnessy, co-chair of the 2012 parade committee, is trying to hand out golf carts. You’d be surprised at how many golf carts it takes to run a parade. On this Saturday morning, about 7 a.m. on the day of the parade, there are 32 golf carts and 10 of the heavy-duty “Gator” vehicles parked outside the Flamingo Club. There are about 60 parade volunteers who want their golf cart, and they all want them at once. And they’re all giving Shaughnessy a hard time about it. But first Shaughnessy has to make sure each volunteer has a green vest and blue wrist band. The vests are a necessity for safety, as volunteers will be out in the city streets placing barricades and giving instructions to parade participants. The blue wristband technically isn’t a necessity, but you’d better have one if you want to partake in the after-parade keg. It becomes obvious that more people would rather leave without a green vest than a blue wristband. Today is the culmination of basically a year’s worth of work. The St. Patrick’s Day Committee holds nearly a dozen fundraisers, everything from the Shamrock Shuffle to “Irish street bowling,” to raise money for its charities and to cover basic parade expenses. But today is showtime, so to speak. About 40 hand-held radios are being handed out to key volunteers. A very serious man is running around with the title “logistics” taped to his vest. A less serious woman is running around passing out headbands with antennae that have little Irish top hats attached to them. Apparently, reporters are required to wear the antennas. Shaughnessy has been up since 4 this morning. Couldn’t sleep. But no one is cutting him a break right now. “Do you know how long it is going to take me to get to 17th and Mass. on a golf cart?” asks one man who clearly is hoping to talk Shaughnessy into giving him one of the high-powered Gators. “I’ve got a solution for you,” Shaughnessy says. “Come back next year and get started a day earlier.” Then Shaughnessy gives a general assessment. “We’ve been doing this for 25 years, and one of these years, we’re going to get it figured out,” he says. “But it might not be this year.”

 

After a complimentary breakfast from the folks at Buffalo Wild Wings, a handful of committee members go to the nearby Red Lyon Tavern for a pre-parade tradition. Let’s just say they consulted an old Irish sage named Jameson. At the bar is Alan John-

son. He and his wife, Terri Wilson, were the couple who got married on the float in the first St. Patrick’s Day Parade. That would make this his 24th wedding anniversary. “It’s still working, isn’t it?” Shaughnessy asks him. “I’m going to go home soon,” he says “and find out.” The hours leading up to the 1 p.m. parade include a lot of troubleshooting. Getting people to where they need to be and when they need to be there. But it also gives time for some memories to bubble up. Like when the dolphin floated down the Kansas River. The Indianapolis Zoo brought a helium-filled dolphin balloon to the parade once. It didn’t survive a wind gust on the Kansas River bridge. Or the year when Shaughnessy spent the whole post-parade party in a tuxedo and bare feet at the Flamingo because he decided to walk the entire parade route in rented dress shoes. Or when … well, some stories are probably best left in the dark with the leprechauns. And then there are the people. If you want to meet a bunch of people, throw a parade. Shaughnessy can’t count all the people he has met through the parade. But several hundred faces are familiar to him as he drives through the downtown on his Gator. It is 9:30 in the morning, and already people are sitting in pickup beds along Massachusetts Street, green horses are grazing in South Park, and the parade route is edged with a white chalk line that soon will be filled with kids eager to fill their own Irish pots with something better than gold: candy. Shaughnessy, one of 10 from a Irish family that saw both the mother and father die before Shaughnessy turned 10, takes it all in. He seemingly waves at every child along the route. “It is a hell of a deal,” he says out of the blue. “It really is.”

 

This is about the point where Mike Lohmann warned the day would start to stick in your throat a bit. First, it is odd to just stand in the middle of Massachusetts Street. Up ahead is 11th and Mass., and beyond that is a crowd estimated at about 20,000 people. From here, Massachusetts Street looks like a ribbon in the wind: colorful, full of movement, mesmerizing for a moment. “I know it sounds corny,” Lohmann says. “But my favorite memory is being there at 11th and Mass. and seeing the parade stretch out in front of you, and know that you were part of it.” There are a handful on the St. Patrick’s Day committee, which numbers about 100 people, who have been a part of all 25. There is not really a list of those names, because this group isn’t about making lists that separate people. They’re much more about bringing folks together. Herbel knows there are probably a few folks who still turn up their noses that the parade ends at a gentlemen’s club or at the rambunctiousness at some of the group’s fundraisers. But she and other committee members don’t make any apologies because they know that there is a reason this event has survived to its 25th edition. “We like to have a good time, and friendship is an awful big part of this equation,” Herbel said. Don’t believe her? Just

look at the 90-year-old man dancing in the middle of Massachusetts Street. He’s an old friend. That’s Bill Sullivan, the New York Irishman who finally got Wes Kabler’s goat one year. He’s been back for almost all of these. He’s dancing a little jig right now because … well, it’s St. Patrick’s Day. When this day is done, the Lawrence St. Patrick’s Day Parade Committee will have raised $60,000 for six charitable organizations. But they’ll also make another dona-

Fit, fun and always game to learn more Parks and rec teacher specializes in enthusiasm

“I can have a positive attitude and my positive attitude helps them have a positive attitude.”

By Shaun Hittle sdhittle@ljworld.com

During the week, Lawrence Parks and Recreation fitness instructor Susan Pomeroy teaches aqua Zumba, an aqua aerobics class for people with arthritis, a “water warriors” class and an aqua “stretch fusion” class. Then there’s her “land” schedule, which includes cycling, more Zumba and tai chi. “I usually teach somewhere between 24 and 26 hours a week,” said Pomeroy, 61, in her typical upbeat, cheery tone. “Isn’t that fun?” While Pomeroy looks like the picture of health today, spinning and dancing her way through the week, it wasn’t always the case. “I was very overweight and very sedentary,” said

I couldn’t keep up with him,” she said of her baby. Her own fitness career started with a parks and recreation class, she said. For the past decade, Pomeroy has led hundreds

of classes, and is open to learning and teaching anything. “Someone will say, ‘Why don’t we do this?’” Pomeroy said. “And then I’ll say OK. And then I’ll

go and learn it.” At a recent cycling class, Pomeroy claps and sings a polka song, as the class participants huff and puff away, clapping and singing along. Afterward, they all chat just like a group of old friends. Through the years, Pomeroy, a former Weight Watchers instructor, said she’s made many friends through the classes. During classes, they chat about what’s going on in their lives, and

Pomeroy jokes that the classes are part therapy. “We talk about such a wide range of topics,” said Judy Jewell, 67, who’s been taking Pomeroy’s classes for years. Jewell enjoys Pomeroy’s classes so much that she’s taken up to six a week over the years. “I like her personality,” Jewell said. “She pushes you if you want to be pushed.” Are the classes fun? “Oh God, yes,” she said. But not everyone appreciates the enthusiasm, Pomeroy said, as she’s heard about a few class participants who referred to her as “that crazy lady.” But Pomeroy takes it in stride. Her main goal is to encourage fitness for people of all ages and abilities. “I can have a positive attitude and my positive attitude helps them have a positive attitude,” Pomeroy said. “And they can sign up for classes and feel better about themselves when they’re done.” — Reporter Shaun Hittle can be reached at 832-7173.

Can We Talk creator paves a path to success By Michael Auchard Special to the Journal-World

After years of teaching and administration in the Lawrence public school system, Willie Amison began to see a problem with black students, in particular males, in regard to academic achievement. Amison met with other members of Lawrence’s black community and set out to create a program, Can We Talk, to help young people. “Can We Talk is a mentoring program started by four gentlemen: myself, Craig Butler, Isaac ‘Bud’ Stallworth and Capt. Ed Brunt,” Amison said. “It was started in 2007. The whole intent was to work with African-American males. We were trying to address the educational disparity between those kids that are of color and the majority kids. There’s a huge achievement gap, and we knew it wasn’t because of lack of intelligence.” Amison, now retired from his assistant principal post at Lawrence High School and employed by Kansas University, also thought there were some experiences the young men weren’t getting in their lives, so he tried to address this by bringing in guest speakers — affluent members of the Lawrence community — to explain how hard work and success go hand in hand. Amison says the group quickly moved beyond catering only to black students.

“As time goes on, the girls wanted to come on board, and then white kids came on board, and Native American and Hispanic kids, Latinos, they came on board as well,” he says. “So, it kind of became a very diverse group of kids. We take them on field trips, we have speakers coming in and telling their stories. We didn’t want them to be lectured to; we just wanted kids to see and hear the various individuals in the community’s stories on how they with the Lawrence comgot to where they are to- munity. day.” “He’s been fantastic.

WILLIE AMISON, now retired from the Lawrence school district, was instrumental in creating Can We Talk, which was originally designed to close the achievement gap between minority and white students. really started with Amison and a few other folks to recognize the needs of our students of color and stepping forward to try and make a difference. Rather than sitting there and pointing fingers they got active and were part of the solution.”

Personal experience Fellow founder of Can We Talk Craig Butler says part of the reason the four founders saw this need in the community was from their own experiences growing up. “One of the things we thought about was helping these kids navigate the system, and we all have had experiences with that.

Especially being older black men, we’ve seen what the system can do. We want our kids to be aware of it. All four of us have had conversations individually and collectively over the years about what we could do.” Butler says while he wishes success for all Lawrence students, he sees a pressing need in particular for black students to receive assistance. “We need to give our kids as much support as we can. We need to give all kids support as we can, but especially our black males. They are the ones who are most endangered in our society. And not just in Lawrence, nation-

wide. Look at the statistics.” As to Amison’s role with the project, the man Butler says is a “great guy” has a legacy that goes beyond this project. Butler says Amison has impacted Lawrence’s youth for the better over his time here as an educator and mentor. “He has a very nurturing personality, a very caring personality and he’s willing to share his knowledge to help kids be all they can be,” Butler says. “That’s Willie. The community of Lawrence has been blessed to have a person of his character and caliber to walk around this town. That’s the truth.”

First-responder proves her mettle in life-and-death crises Alex Garrison acgarrison@ljworld.com

We all have gifts, Mary Tye says, and we all have calls to serve. Hers is helping her community in times of crisis. Quite literally, she’s a lifesaver. Tye, who works as a medical records coder at Lawrence Memorial Hospital, has volunteered as a first-responder for southwest Douglas County for more than 32 years. She also has taken in foster children who have been put in emergency protective custody — about 40 children under the age of 5 — for more than six years. Dennis Leslie is the training coordinator for the county’s first-responder volunteers, who respond to medical emergencies outside Lawrence, and has known Tye for almost 20 years. He says it takes “someone special” to be a volunteer — someone with intense family support, willingness to constantly stay up-to-date with training, and

“We can all help others in some way. It’s what we were created to do.”

MARY TYE, pictured recently in her home, has volunteered as a first-responder for southwest Douglas County for more than 32 years.

the emotional toughness to stay calm in traumatic, life-or-death situations. Tye has it all, he says, and is widely known as a pillar of her community, running calls from Willow Springs, Clinton and Marion townships.

Volunteers like her “put their lives on hold for others,” Leslie said, and are “willing to give their time to make a difference in everyone’s lives they touch.” It’s a demanding duty, but a rewarding one, he added.

Tye says she “can’t go on a road in a southwest Douglas County without thinking, I took a call there, there and there,” which gives her a bittersweet connection with the community where she lives and volunteers. She sees the people of her community in crisis and emergencies, frequently first on the scene of major traffic accidents and medical situations, from diabetic emergencies to lifethreatening injuries. She says working with people whom she knows can help them in their time of stress. “There’s a connection of seeing a familiar face that mitigates the stress level,” she said. “But the flip side of that is going through traumatic situations with people near and dear to us.” With medical privacy laws, it’s hard to know what comes of a patient after she sees him or her, but sometimes she hears from families she’s helped. “They say, ‘thanks so much for being there,’ or ‘we’re so glad you were with mom in her last

moments,’” she said. Tye said her husband and adult children support her volunteering completely. They have to, after all, because “it’s a team process.” She has to be ready to take a call any time — there aren’t quite enough volunteers to take shifts — so that can mean running to an emergency during dinner or the middle of the night. Asked why she gives so much to others, she says it’s her call from God. “Some of us have the gift of being there,” she said. “The ability to help start the healing process, that’s the gift I’ve been given.” She’s helped train new volunteers and says it’s a gift, too, “teaching someone to do what you love.” And she believes everyone can and should find some way, however small, to give back. “We can all help others in some way,” she said. “It’s what we were created to do.”

UTSA set to join Conference USA SAN ANTONIO (AP) — Conference USA is set to bring aboard Texas-San Antonio ahead of a planned merger with the Mountain West that would create a new league with as many as 24 schools. The University of Texas System Board of Regents has scheduled a vote for Wednesday, and Chancellor Francisco Cigarroa has recommended approving the move only months

before UTSA is set to begin its first season in the Western Athletic Conference. Football coach Larry Coker and UTSA officials apparently began having reservations about the WAC, telling regents that three other WAC members have declared their intentions to defect. The agenda does not reveal which of the remaining football-playing WAC schools —

Utah State, Idaho, New Mexico State, Louisiana Tech, Texas State or San Jose State — plan to depart. “Joining CUSA ... will provide greater national visibility and association with universities of similar enrollment, academic standing and community size,� the agenda item reads. UTSA went 4-6 in its inaugural football season as an independent in FCS last year, but

the program has sought to accelerate its national profile. The Roadrunners made a splash by giving Coker his first coaching job since Miami, where he won a national championship in 2001. UTSA then made the 66,000-seat Alamodome their home field and are now transitioning at a pace that is among the fastest ever into playing in college football’s top tier.

FANS LOOK ON DURING THE FOURTH ROUND OF THE NFL DRAFT on Saturday at Radio City Music Hall in New York.

Chiefs select Fresno State wide receiver Wylie KANSAS CITY, MO. — Devon Wylie has gotten Wes Welker comparisons “every day of my life.� They’re not about to stop in Kansas City. The Chiefs chose the shifty, undersized wide receiver out of Fresno State with their fourthround pick Saturday, adding a potential target over the middle for quarterback Matt Cassel. “People consider me to be an undersized slot receiver, and that’s fine if that’s the way they want to look at it. I take it as a compliment,� Wylie said. “Wes Welker has shown to be an amazing receiver — one of the most productive season-in and season-out. So that’s fine with me.� It was the first move by Kansas City to add a skill-position player in the draft. The Chiefs added another with sixth-round pick Cyrus Gray of Texas A&M, and drafted Michigan wide receiver Junior Hemingway in the seventh round. Alabama defensive back De’Quan Menzie was the pick in the fifth round and San Diego State defensive tackle Jerome Long in the seventh. The Chiefs plugged a gaping hole at defensive tackle with Dontari Poe in the first round, and went for offensive line depth with their secondand third-round picks. “Every once in a while you get that reminder that you better have quality depth and you can’t have too many good players,� Chiefs general manager Scott Pioli said. “Even if you think you have good front-line players, you can never have too many good players.� Wylie, who can also return punts and kicks, turned heads at the scouting combine when he ran the 40-yard dash in 4.39 seconds and benched 225 pounds 17 times. Fifteen teams showed up at Fresno State’s pro day to watch Wylie, though many scouts had him going in later rounds due to durability concerns. Hamstring and ankle injuries caused him to miss four games his sophomore and junior seasons, and a stress fracture in his foot sustained during training camp wiped out what would have been his senior season. He wound up redshirting two years ago and put together a strong season for a poor Fresno State team in 2011, catching 56 passes for 716 yards and a touchdown. “Some of those things I consider snake-bitten injuries, a hamstring strain or something you really can’t do anything about,� Wylie said. “The good thing about it is none of it is lack of durability. It’s just unfortunate things.� Kansas City used a patchwork group that included Keary Colbert and Jerheme Urban in the slot last season, and the 5-foot-9 Wylie appears to be a much better fit for the position.

Kyle Busch wins in Richmond RICHMOND, VA. — Kyle Busch capped a perfect weekend Saturday night by winning the spring race at Richmond for the fourth consecutive year. The victory snaps a 22-race winless streak for Busch. It came a day after he went to Victory Lane for the first time as a Nationwide Series team owner, celebrating brother Kurt Busch’s Friday night win. Busch beat Tony Stewart off pit road on the final stop of the race, which came after a caution for debris with 13 laps to go. He then pulled away from Stewart on the restart with nine laps left and wasn’t challenged for the victory. Dale Earnhardt Jr. passed Stewart on the restart and finished second, Stewart was third. Carl Edwards was black-flagged with 81 laps to go for jumping the restart.

By Drew Sharp

The last time Alex Rodriguez faced the Tigers in the bottom of the ninth inning at Yankee Stadium, he stood against a team that could do no wrong. He whiffed for the last out in the Tigers’ historic seriesclinching victory last October. But Friday night, A-Rod had the benefit of confronting a Tigers team that can’t do anything right. The Tigers can’t even stay out into the wee hours of the morning without embarrassing themselves. According to New York police and court documents, an inebriated Delmon Young hurled an anti-Semitic slur outside the Tigers’ midtown Manhattan hotel about 2:30 a.m. and then a scuffle ensued with a 32-year-old man. The extent of the fight reflected the Tigers’ recent offensive woes: There wasn’t much contact. The victim sustained an injured elbow that didn’t require medical treatment. Young spent time in the hospital because the arresting officers believed that he was in an intoxicated state. After posting a $5,000 bond, Young was released early in the evening. Reporters converged upon him after he left a Manhattan criminal court. Manager Jim Leyland snapped at a television reporter following the game who asked whether he had any reaction to the Young arraignment, on the misdemeanor charge of aggravated harassment, officially submitted as a hate crime. “Get lost,� he barked at the reporter. “Get lost.� The incident gained national attention throughout Friday, ironically coming just days an African-American Washington Capitals player, Joel Ward, got hit with a Twitter barrage of racially charged insults from Boston Bruins fans after he scored the Game 7-winning overtime goal in their first-round series. Any potential Young fallout isn’t about political correctness or overly heightened sensitivities. If Young were the recipient of racially influenced venom against African Americans there would be considerable outrage against the perpetrator and sympathy toward him. The disgust should be just as strong if it’s true that Young was the verbal dispenser of such narrowed stupidity against Jewish people. Young, now 26, needs to grow up. Aside from potentially damaging his reputation for, at the very least, putting himself in a needlessly embarrassing situation, Young might have compromised his marketability since this is his contract season. He will hit the free-agent market for the first time next winter. And he will have to work hard to rectify the character blemish he likely will sport for the remainder of this season. “We’re going to support him with what he’s going through,� centerfielder Austin Jackson said following the game. “This is a team and we’re going to stick together through the good times and the bad.� The bad got a little worse — on many fronts.

BIG 12 WOMEN’S GOLF

Jayhawks sit in 10th despite big turnaround By Jesse Newell jnewell@ljworld.com

After a pep talk from her dad — and also one from herself — Kansas University sophomore Meghan Potee posted the conference’s biggest turnaround Saturday during the second round of the three-day Big 12 championships. Following an openinground 91 on Friday, Potee led the Jayhawks by carding a 3-over 73 Saturday at Lawrence Country Club. “I was like, ‘I’ve played this course so many times. I know I can play it well. I’ve played it well before,’” Potee said. “I think I just got nervous (Friday) and put a lot of pressure on myself.” After the disappointing start, Meghan received lots of support from her father, Chris, on Friday night. Following dinner, Chris reminded Meghan of tournaments she’d played in the past where she’d had an outstanding second day after not playing so well on the first. The sophomore thrived Saturday by playing mostly mistake-free golf, posting 15 pars to go with three bogeys. “I think it shows a strong character, not to give up on herself and not to give up on her team,” KU coach Erin O’Neil said. “I’m really proud of how she handled herself.” A big part of Potee’s improvement was her putting. After changing her grip in the warm-up session Saturday, she finished her round with 11 fewer putts than she had Friday. “My putting was what really got to me (Friday),” Potee said. “I was like, ‘I know these greens. I know every single break that’s on them. I’ve played it 400 times.’ I just needed to relax and calm down more.”

The 31-stroke improvement from Day 1 to Day 2 was the best of any Big 12 school. Four of the Jayhawks’ five golfers reduced their Friday scores by at least eight strokes. That included freshman Gabby DiMarco, who ended her round with three straight birdies, including a chip-in on No. 16, to notch a 10-over 80. “I know she’s been a little nervous, this being her first conference (tournament) and all and us hosting,” O’Neil said. “I think that definitely gave her a huge boost she needed to carry over to tomorrow and keep the same steady play.” Sophomore Thanuttra Boonraksasat posted a 5-over 75 to move into a tie for 19th, while senior Katy Nugent tallied two birdies — including one on No. 18 — to keep her score in the 70s with a 9-over 79. After opening the day in a tie for 10th, junior Audrey Yowell struggled, shooting a 14-over 84 to move back into a tie for 35th. “She was kind of trying to protect it instead of just playing her game,” O’Neil said. “She just couldn’t quite get it settled down.

But I think (Sunday) she’ll get back in the groove and be just fine.” Even with Saturday’s improvement, KU still is in last place, seven strokes behind ninth-place Missouri (638) and 13 shots back of eighth-place Kansas State (632). Four teams are bunched at the top. Oklahoma is first with a team score of 608, followed by Iowa State (613), Baylor (615) and Oklahoma State (616).

KANSAS SOFTBALL

Junior’s walk-off single sweetens Senior Day By Benton Smith basmith@ljworld.com

Down a run entering the bottom of the seventh Saturday afternoon at Arrocha Ballpark, Kansas University’s softball team had plenty of reasons to rally for a win. Hours earlier, Texas Tech had beat the Jayhawks in the conclusion of a game suspended Friday night. Then there was the matter of KU’s five seniors, who were about to be recognized upon the game’s conclusion. Plus, with the end of the regular season rapidly approaching, Kansas was in dire need of another q u a l i t y Montgomery win on its resume. A walk-off single from junior Mariah Montgomery avenged a 4-1 loss to the Red Raiders in the series opener, assured seniors Kelsey Alsdorf, Leah Daiber, Marissa Ingle, Liz Kocon and Ashley Spencer of a bummer-free senior day ceremony and gave the Jayhawks a 5-4 victory over No. 24 Texas Tech. Kansas (31-17 overall, 6-14 Big 12) couldn’t be denied in the seventh. Elsa Moyer sparked the KU rally with a leadoff infield single, her second hit of the game. Jayhawks coach Megan Smith said that play was as big as any, and anytime Moyer is leading off, her team feels good about its chances. “I think Elsa’s done an

ter field, where Moyer momentarily bobbled the ball. Trying to capitalize, Logan Hall went to third, and an errant Moyer throw coaxed Hall to head home. However, KU relief pitcher Kristin Martinez was backing up third and threw to catcher Lexi Bryant, who tagged Hall out at the plate. Said Smith: “That play sparked it (the win).” Montgomery agreed, and called Martinez “unbelievable” in her 4 1/3 innings of relief. “That play at the end there, great throw to Lexi,” said Montgomery, who hit a solo home run in the second. “That’s why you’re supposed to back up that play. Unbelievable play.” Hull said it gave the Jayhawks even more confidence. “We knew we had the top of our lineup coming up and there was no other place we would rather be,” Hull said. “It took a lot of heart and it took a lot of passion, but that’s exactly what we had. We believed it the whole time.” The Jayhawks wrap up their final home series of the season at noon today against Texas Tech.

unbelievable job of just making things happen,” Smith said. With that, junior Maggie Hull tied the game, 4-4, on an RBI double off Tech reliever Cara Custer, who then walked Maddie Stein to set up a potential force play at third or second. But Montgomery sat on an inside pitch and cranked it to the left-field gap to win the game. Hull said the rally actually began in the bottom of the sixth, with KU trailing Tech, 4-1. The Jayhawks huddled up and talked about winning the game for the seniors and their postseason livelihood. “I think that moment was the turning point,” Hull said. “That’s when we all believed.” Texas Tech 4-4, Kansas had more ener- Kansas 1-5 gy after that, Hull added, Game 1 (Suspended Friday, in top of 5th) 130 000 0 — 4 7 0 and Chanin Naudin’s two- Texas Tech 100 000 0 — 1 3 0 run single down the left- Kansas W — Cara Custer, 24-8.

By the time Free State High baseball junior Anthony Miele stepped into the batter’s box in the bottom of the ninth Saturday against Blue Valley North, the Firebirds had gone 20 batters in a row without a hit and seen a one-run lead with two outs in the bottom of the seventh disappear. Disaster averted. With the bases loaded and no outs, Miele knocked a game-winning single to left field for a 2-1 Firebirds victory at FSHS. Though Free State had scrounged up 10 base runners in innings five through eight — thanks to walks, Mustangs errors and a fielder’s choice — Miele’s game-winner over BVN left fielder Jacob Fultz’s head was the home team’s first hit since a Lee McMahon single in the fourth. Miele said he was “guessing fastball” on the winning hit, but turned on a hanging curve from Mustangs reliever David Thompson. “I got lucky and made some solid contact on it,” Miele said. Considering the Firebirds (8-8) hadn’t scored a run since the bottom of the second, when JD Prochaska hit a double down the first-base line to score McMahon, FSHS coach Mike Hill knew his team had a shot in the ninth once McMahon (2-for-3) drew a walk. “The key in games like that is you’ve got to get the leadoff guy on,” Hill said. Following clean-up hitter McMahon’s leadoff walk, Prochaska reached on an error and BVN intentionally walked Tim Turner to load the bases. Said Miele: “Once we had four, five and six get on, it put the weight on my shoulders, and I had to come up big for the team.” Had the Firebirds not come through in extras, junior relief pitcher Sam Hearnen would’ve felt the brunt of a disappoint-

Hearnen, who relieved starter Ryan Cantrell (four innings pitched, two walks, one hit) to begin the fifth inning, had the Mustangs down to their final out in the top of the seventh. Alex Shartzer kept BVN alive by sliding safely, head-first, into first base with an infield single. Then Hearnen hit the next three batters, allowing the Mustangs to tie the game, 1-1. Hearnen said he isn’t usually one to bean a batter, let alone three straight. “My accuracy’s usually pretty good,” he said. “I don’t know what it was — if it was my arm dragging or something. I hit those three guys in a row, and I was kind of shellshocked by the fact that that happened.” To his credit, the bleeding stopped there. Hearnen got out of the seventh with a diving grab by senior first baseman Montana Samuels, and the reliever retired six of the last seven batters he faced to finish

with five innings of work, three hits allowed and two strikeouts. Hearnen knew he had to keep his head up, he said, and he wanted to finish the game strong because he felt terrible about giving up the tying run. “I knew no matter what happened, I just had to go out the next inning and try to get three outs, straight up,” he said. Hill was happy to see his top relief pitcher recover. “He faced a little adversity there in the seventh and there wasn’t anything coming to rescue him,” Hill said. “He had to get it done on his own, and he did. He was spectacular.” The Firebirds play host to Olathe North at 5:30 p.m. on Tuesday. Blue Valley North Free State

KANSAS UNIVERSITY QUARTERBACK DAYNE CRIST (10) CALLS OUT a play during the first half of KU’s spring game on Saturday at Kivisto Field.

Crist crisp in 45-0 debut By Matt Tait mtait@ljworld.com

With about a dozen friends and family members enjoying the weather and tossing the football around him, Kansas University quarterback Dayne Crist wolfed down a plate of tailgate food about an hour after Saturday’s spring game at Memorial Stadium. He earned it. Playing his first live performance as a Jayhawk, in front of a crowd of 15,000 enthused KU football fans, the Notre Dame transfer completed 11 of 19 passes for 156 yards and led the Blue team to a 45-0 victory over the White squad in the final event of KU coach Charlie Weis’ first spring in Lawrence. More important than the final score or the statistics was the fact that Crist showed everyone in attendance that the Jayhawks were running a different, more efficient offense in 2012. No play better illustrated that than sophomore running back Tony Pierson’s 88-yard touchdown run late in the third quarter. As Crist walked to the line of scrimmage, he surveyed the defense and identified the middle linebacker, a staple of Weis’ offense. Not seeing the set he wanted, Crist called an audible and Pierson did the rest.

I was pleased. He knows the offense, he knows how to run the operation, he can get us out of trouble in a bad call.” — Kansas coach Charlie Weis on quarterback Dayne Crist “I told him, ‘When the hole’s that big, he better be able to score a touchdown,’” Weis said. “I also told him that there aren’t many guys who can run 88 yards. It’s pretty obvious, when he’s in space, it’s a problem.” That’s where Crist’s understanding of the offense can benefit Kansas most. Had a less experienced quarterback been in there, Pierson’s big run might have been a threeyard gain. Instead, it was the top highlight from an afternoon full of them. “If I’m not mistaken, it was supposed to go to the left side, and he changed it back to the right side,” said Pierson, the game’s offensive MVP, who finished with 141 yards on seven carries. “Dayne usually changes up the play two times out of five. He can read the defense and once he sees what the defense is in, he’ll change the play. He’s very good at that.” He’s also very good at a lot of other things,

KANSAS RUNNING BACK TONY PIERSON RUSHES upfield as offensive lineman Tanner Hawkinson, back right, pushes aside defensive tackle Pat Lewandowski. and nearly all of them were on display Saturday. From making deep throws and flashing pinpoint accuracy, to subtle movements in the pocket and understanding how to use his running game, Crist’s command allowed KU’s blue squad — made up mostly of first-string players — to roll up 518 yards of offense, six touchdowns and one field goal in a game that was played with a running clock. “Well, he could make every throw, and he didn’t look too rusty to me,” Weis

said. “I thought he slung it around pretty good. I was pleased. He knows the offense, he knows how to run the operation, he can get us out of trouble in a bad call.” Crist completed four straight passes for first downs to open the game, but a couple of drops caused the Blue team’s initial drive to stall. Ron Doherty, who also made all six extra points he attempted, knocked a 30yard field goal through the uprights to get the scoring started. With the Blue defense forcing the

White into three-and-outs for most of the afternoon, Crist and fellow formerfive star QB, Jake Heaps, had plenty of opportunities to lead the Blue team. And Weis had plenty of chances to dial up crowdpleasing plays. “I could have created some situations to have the game closer,” Weis said. “I didn’t have to call reverses and I didn’t have to call flea-flickers, but the fans want to have some fun, too. Jake Heaps’ first throw here is a fleaflicker. I didn’t have to call those things, but part of the spring game is to have fun, too, and I think maybe the Blue team had a little bit more fun than the White team. A lot of guys had the opportunity to make plays that either did or didn’t, and it will show up very clearly when we watch the tape.” Senior receiver D.J. Beshears (3 catches, 33 yards) scored two touchdowns, one of them on a 28-yard rumble on a reverse, sophomore running back Marquis Jackson (10 carries, 76 yards) scored three times on runs of seven, three and 15 yards, and seniors Daymond Patterson (5 catches for 64 yards) and Kale Pick (4-82) led the KU receivers. Pick was the recipient of the flea-flicker from Heaps, who finished 7-of-10 passing for 106 yards and one touchdown.

HOW THEY SCORED First Quarter 10:22 — Ron Doherty 30 field goal. The Jayhawks picked up first downs on four straight plays to open the game but saw the promising drive stall with back-to-back drops inside the 20-yard line. Tony Pierson ran twice for 22 yards and caught a pass from QB Dayne Crist 17 more. (Blue 3, White 0). 3:52 — D.J. Beshears 28 run. Doherty kick. After the Blue defense held the White offense to a three-and-out, KU reeled off a seven-play, 76-yard drive that spanned 6:30 and resulted in touchdown run off a reverse. Pierson took the handoff right and pitched it to Beshears, who ran back left and used a great block from senior wide receiver Kale Pick to get into the end zone. (Blue 10, White 0). Second Quarter 13:25 — Beshears 6 pass from Jake Heaps. Doherty kick. The second play of the second quarter brought more trickery from KU coach Charlie Weis, who dialed up a flea-flicker for Heaps’ first pass of the day. The bomb, which was caught by Pick, covered 46 yards and set KU up with a first-and-goal at the 6-yard line. (Blue 17, White 0). Third Quarter 9:06 — Marquis Jackson 7 run. Doherty kick. Serving as the second-string tailback on the Blue squad, Jackson’s took care of the final 15 yards and TD run on KU’s fourth scoring drive. The drive featured a 20-yard run from Pierson and two completions from Crist. (Blue 24, White 0). 3:45 — Tony Pierson 88 run. Doherty kick. Following a quick series by the White team and reserve QB Blake Jablonski, the Blue squad struck again on the second play of its next drive. (Blue 31, White 0). Fourth Quarter 10:05 — Jackson 3 run. Doherty kick. The big, physical Jackson kept getting carries and kept making the most of them. On the drive that led to his second TD of the game, the KU sophomore carried three times for 21 yards. Crist also hooked up with Daymond Patterson for 22 yards on two completions during the eight-play, 66-yard drive. (Blue 38, White 0). 00:58 — Jackson 15 run. Doherty kick. On what wound up being the final offensive play of the game because of the running clock, Jackson capped a nice afternoon with a strong run. The first-year back, who played wide receiver last season, finished the day with 76 yards on 10 carries. (Blue 45, White 0)

NOTEBOOK: Cummings coming along as backup QB part of the process. He can make every throw. Now we have to get him more fine-tuned in running the offense.”

By Matt Tait mtait@ljworld.com

A lot has been made about Kansas University football coach Charlie Weis upgrading KU’s quarterback position by bringing in two former five-star QBs with Div. I experience and a juniorcollege transfer who has won everywhere he’s been. As it turns out, Weis might have had more to work with than he initially thought, and the first-year coach was more than happy to point that out after Saturday’s 45-0 victory by the Blue squad in KU’s annual spring game. “Too many times, people get stereotyped,” Weis said of red-shirt freshman QB Michael Cummings,

KANSAS QUARTERBACK MICHAEL CUMMINGS HANDS OFF to running back James Sims during the first half on Saturday. who quarterbacked the White team on Saturday and finished 2-of-7 for 14 yards and added 23 yards on the ground on seven carries. “People want to say, ‘Mike is the athletic quarterback.’ Well, Mike

has a cannon for an arm. He’s not tall, but he has a cannon for an arm. Him throwing the ball is not the issue. His experience is the issue, but he’s a freshman. He’s only been here one year. So that’s

More White highlights Speaking of good things from KU’s White squad, former first-string tailback James Sims, who has fallen down the depth chart because of an off-the-field incident that resulted in a three-game suspension, ran hard throughout the day on Saturday behind KU’s second-string offensive line. Sims averaged 4.1 yards per run, finishing with 58 yards on 14 carries. In addition, cornerback Corrigan Powell led all defensive players with eight tackles, while Dexter Linton and Ray Mitchell added five stops apiece.

For the Blue team, sophomore Ben Heeney led with seven tackles and senior Lubbock Smith added six.

Names are back Although the defensive linemen wore light blue jerseys to indicate they played for both sides on Saturday, their inclusion simply hammered home one important fact — last names have returned to the backs of KU’s uniforms after disappearing under former coach Turner Gill. McCay update Sophomore receiver Justin McCay played a limited number of snaps and went without a catch during Saturday’s game. Afterwards, Weis gave another update on the Okla-

homa transfer’s eligibility status, which remains in limbo pending the results of an appeal to the NCAA. “The never-ending saga,” Weis joked. “But they told us by May 2. Just like I said last time, as soon as I hear something, he’ll know about it first, and then I’ll get it out there as quickly as I can.” Asked if he was optimistic about McCay being granted a hardship waiver, which would allow him to play immediately, Weis voiced his frustration and confusion about the NCAA’s original ruling. “When they sit there and say ‘We’re saying no now, but this is what you should do,’ I think that they would like for this to be yes,” he said. “That’s what I think.”

Undrafted ex-KU linebacker Steven Johnson signs with Denver Broncos By Matt Tait mtait@ljworld.com

For the second year in a row, a former Kansas University defensive standout has signed a free agent contract with the Denver Broncos. Saturday, just minutes after the 2012 NFL Draft had wrapped, former KU linebacker Steven Johnson, who led the Jayhawks

in tackles during each of the past two seasons, announced via Twitter that he had agreed to a deal with the Broncos. Johnson, a 6-foot, 239-pound linebacker, who attended the inviteonly NFL combine in February, joins former KU defensive back Chris Harris in the Mile High City. Like Harris, Johnson went undrafted but found

a good fit in the Broncos, who are reshaping their defense u n d e r secondyear head c o a c h John Fox. Johnson said the Broncos came into Johnson the picture late in the draft. Den-

ver actually tried to trade for a pick in the seventh round so it could draft Johnson, but could not secure a pick. That inspired the Broncos to tell Johnson they wanted to sign him as a free agent and, after mulling over offers from Denver, Tennessee and about half a dozen others, Johnson saw Denver as the best situation. “I’m happy,” Johnson

said. “I’m a little overwhelmed, and it hasn’t really set in yet.” As is the nature of the business, nothing is guaranteed to Johnson at this point, but Harris, who initially confirmed the news to the Journal-World Saturday evening, said he believed his former and now current teammate had a great chance of making the team.

“He’s going to have to earn his way through special teams first and make plays there,” Harris said. “Then he will be able to show what he can do on defense.” Johnson said Harris’ path to success in Denver played a part in his decision. “It actually meant a lot,” Please see PROS, page 7B

Reynolds has the talent, needs the consistency This corporate sports world in which we live feeds us so many football coaches skilled in the art of dancing around questions as if they’re land mines. And then there is Charlie Weis. Ask him a question and he — get this — answers it. It’s so difficult to retrain the brain away from the knee-jerk reaction of, “OK, I need to process this. Why is he saying what he’s saying, what does he really mean, and he doesn’t really think I’m going to fall for that, does he?” Weis, as a communicator, is nothing if not direct. That quality comes in handy with the players he coaches. “He’s always direct to us and that’s the first thing he told us,” said defensive end/outside linebacker Michael Reynolds, voted Saturday the Defensive MVP of the spring game. “He said he’ll be 100-percent honest with us, and so we can put our trust in him all the way. That’s exactly what everybody should want.” Asked about Reynolds, a 6-foot-1, 220-pound rising sophomore from Wichita, Weis didn’t get vague. It’s not his style. He doesn’t believe in wasting his time and nobody needs to wear boots to his news conferences.

OKLAHOMA PLAYERS CELEBRATE Max White’s (7) three-run home run at the plate in front of Kansas University catcher James Stanfield during the second game of KU’s three-game series against OU at Hoglund Ballpark. getting the clutch hit in league games. On Saturday, down just 3-1, KU wasted opportunities in the seventh and eighth. James Stanfield hit into an inning-ending double play in the seventh; Connor McKay and Michael Suiter popped up with two men on in the eighth. “We make progress, then we have nights like tonight where their guy dominated us with the fastball in. I tip my cap to

them; throwing 95. He did a good job getting in on our guys and dominating us,” Price said. OU sophomore starting pitcher Jonathan Gray (4-4), who was clocked at 97 mph, struck out six, walked four, allowed four hits and stranded six men on base in his 6 1/3 innings. Steven Okert, who enticed Stanfield to hit into the DP, was perfect in 1 2/3 innings with Jacob Rhame mopping up after

OU plated five insurance runs in the ninth. “It’s something we’ve not seen much this year, (somebody) that fast,” Stanfield said. “It all gets down to being ready to hit. We had some opportunities. We didn’t clutch up. We’ll get after them tomorrow.” Max White had a threerun homer in the fifth off Wes Benjamin (2-6) and five RBIs for OU, 28-16 overall and 9-8 in the Big 12. Stanfield was 3-5 with

an RBI, while Kevin Kuntz had two hits for KU, 17-27, 4-13. “Anytime you are playing somebody in the Top 25 ... we need to pick up a ‘W’ and stay in contention and give ourselves an opportunity to get in the thing late,” Price said. Oklahoma Kansas

OKLAHOMA CITY — Kansas finished tied for third at the Big 12 Rowing Championships on Saturday in Oklahoma City, while Texas won its fourth-straight title by one point over Oklahoma, 105-104. Kansas and Kansas State tied for third place with 64 points each. The First Varsity Four boat of seniors Paige Stephens, Kathryn Schoonover and coxswain Lindsey Bricklemyer and juniors Emily Starr and Ashleigh Allam won with a time of 7:43.69 to earn 17 points, capturing the program’s first race crown in league history by 10 seconds. The Jayhawks finished the day of competition with three third-place finishes and two fourth-place finishes. Kansas junior Olivia Kinet was selected to the AllBig 12 first team, while senior Melanie Luthi earned second-team honors.

KU men’s golf 10th at Big 12 TRINITY, TEXAS — The Jayhawks remained in 10th place after 54 holes of competition at the Big 12 Championship Saturday at Whispering Pines Golf Club in Trinity, Texas.

There was more bad news on the scoreboard, but some positive information on the injury front Saturday night at Hoglund Ballpark. No. 23-ranked Oklahoma, which handcuffed Kansas University’s baseball team, 4-1, on Friday night, again silenced KU’s bats in an 8-2 victory in Game Two of the series. However, it was revealed before Saturday’s game that senior third baseman Zac Elgie, who broke his left pinkie while sliding on a triple Friday night, might miss just two weeks. The Minot, N.D., standout figures to be listed as questionable for season-ending series a g a i n s t Elgie Kansas State (May 11-13) and Missouri (May 17-19). “They’ll X-ray it each of the next two weeks. If it heals enough they can buddy tape it and (if he can) stand the pain, he’s going to try to play the last couple weeks of the season,” KU coach Ritch Price said. The Jayhawks, of course, are hoping their season extends into the Big 12 Tournament. KU enters today’s noon series final against Oklahoma tied with Texas Tech for seventh in the nine-team league at 4-13. Kansas State is in last place at 3-14. Only eight teams advance to the postseason tourney. “It’s been a struggle for us all year,” Price said of the Jayhawks

PLAYOFFS ROUNDUP

Bulls 103, 76ers 91 CHICAGO — Derrick Rose crumbled to the floor, clutching his left knee. His season is over and the Bulls’ title hopes just might be finished, too. Rose will miss the rest of the season after tearing the anterior cruciate ligament in his knee late in Chicago’s 103-91 victory over the Philadelphia 76ers in Saturday’s playoff opener, casting big cloud over a team eyeing a championship run. He scored 23 points and was playing more like the league’s reigning MVP after missing 27 games because of injuries during the regular season, but his injury-plagued season came to an end as the Bulls were wrapping up an impressive victory. Rose crumbled to the ground after he drove the lane with about 1:20 left and the Bulls leading by 12. He was going for a layup when he came to a jump-stop and seemed to change his mind as the 76ers’ Spencer Hawes and Lavoy Allen rotated over, passing off to a teammate before an awkward landing. Team medical personnel immediately rushed out and tended to Rose for several minutes as he was writhing in pain near the baseline before helping him to the locker room. Rose was taken to the hospital, and the results of the MRI were not good. Whether Rose should have been in the game at that point figures to be debated for a long time around Chicago. He checked back in with just under eight minutes left and the lead got as high as 20 shortly after that before the Sixers chipped away at it. With Philadelphia making a push, coach Tom Thibodeau decided to stay with Rose. “I don’t work backward like you guys do,” Thibodeau said. “The score was going the other way.” Veteran guard Richard Hamilton defended the decision, saying, “Philly was making a run. In playoff basketball, you never want to give a team confidence. ... When you have a team down, you have to try to keep them down. They made a little run so we needed guys that could put the ball in the basket.”

Wrestling ambassador ————

Streeter nourishes ‘hidden treasure’ of sport he loves By Benton Smith basmith@ljworld.com

For Randy Streeter, wrestling is life. Head coach for both the Sunflower Kids Wrestling club and South Middle School, and an assistant coach at Lawrence High, Streeter eats, drinks and breathes wrestling. He even met his wife, Melissa, through the sport he grew up loving in tiny Beaver Falls, N.Y. Another sport may reign supreme in Lawrence, home of Kansas University’s men’s basketball team, but Streeter thinks wrestling is a “hidden treasure” for young city athletes, and his passion for teaching grappling to children as young as 4 or 5 has turned Sunflower Kids Wrestling into a laboratory where future state champions are created. Streeter helped found SKW in 2001, when a small group of parents decided they wanted something more for their children in a youth wrestling program. The founding class includes names that a decade later became the faces of LHS wrestling: Reece WrightConklin, Hunter Haralson, Caden Lynch, Andrew Denning and Levi Flohrschutz. There were just a dozen or so club members in 2001, but this year SKW, Streeter’s pride and joy, had close to 50 wrestlers, and roughly 80 percent of them were in fourth grade or below. Himself a kids club product, Streeter said starting young usually, but not always, is a key to success. “Kids that are pretty salty and pretty successful kids when they get to high school are the kids that started when they were 5, 6, 7 years old,” he said, pointing to 2012 Class 6A state champions WrightConklin, who started at 4, and Haralson, who began at 5. Though admittedly biased, Streeter described wrestling as “the single biggest opportunity for life lessons” in a young adult or child. Not one to knock other sports, Streeter trusts wrestling to provide instruction in dedication and humility. “It teaches you a lot about getting knocked down — that’s for sure — and getting back up,” Streeter said. “That’s what happens in the world to everybody at some point.” Becky Clothier’s son,

CAMP INFO The Sunflower Kids Wrestling summer camp, for all ages and experience levels, is June 4-6 at the Lawrence High wrestling room. E-mail coach Randy Streeter at randy@ sunflowerkidswrestling. com for registration. Alan, has won a state middle school championship with SKW. She has been around Streeter and the program since her older son, Evan, now in college, joined the team in seventh grade. The wrestlers, Becky said, think Streeter is cool and therefore want to learn. She said Alan, who is competitive, used to act as if a loss was the end of the world. Streeter taught him how to handle setbacks and keep improving. Parents take note of Streeter’s approach, even from afar. Haralson wasn’t always part of SKW. He had lived and wrestled in De Soto for two years before his parents saw Streeter coaching. Haralson’s mother, Jenny Steichen, said they were so enamored that the family moved to Lawrence so Haralson could join the Sunflower team. Like many wrestlers, Haralson has been under Streeter’s wing since. “He’s their friend, he’s their mentor,” Steichen said, noting the coach also is a father figure to wrestlers in single-mother homes. “He’s everything to them.” Streeter has three boys of his own — Caleb, 9, Eric, 7, and Drew, 5. Wright-Conklin said his coach always had a way of reining in the hyper-wandering attention of youngsters. “Randy is really good with the little kids,” Wright-Conklin said. “He’s got a lot of patience with them.” Highly skilled young wrestlers are a product of that capacity. Dan Lynch’s sons, Caden, 17, and Cael, 9, have learned under Streeter’s tutelage. Dan said Streeter taught Caden a move called the quarter nelson, which is almost never pulled off in youth wrestling. But Streeter’s repetitive coaching of the move allowed Caden to execute it in a match. Says Streeter, “I love the sport, I love kids and I love what the sport has done for me.”

“Kids that are pretty salty and pretty successful kids when they get to high school are the kids that started when they were 5, 6, 7 years old.”

Retired coach relishing ‘great life’ By Shaun Hittle sdhittle@ljworld.com

Retired South Junior High School physical education teacher and longtime basketball, baseball and track coach Ron Garvin, 62, sits on a porch talking sports and retirement at a west Lawrence home. His short but trim and fit-looking frame is dressed in paint-splattered shorts and a T-shirt. He’s taking a break from his new job, painting houses for Classic Painting, along with several other retired teachers. Life’s a little more relaxed now, Garvin said, and he wears retirement well. “It’s a great life,” said Garvin, who retired a few years ago. He does a little painting during the week and occasionally finds himself substitute teaching. The best part is helping coach his grandchildren’s baseball and softball teams. That’s how he gets his “coaching fix,” he said, after 28 years coaching junior high football and basketball, 20 years as an assistant baseball coach for Lawrence High, and an-

FORMER BASKETBALL, BASEBALL AND TRACK COACH RON GARVIN simulates a bunt during a youth baseball practice at the YSI sports complex. Though he’s retired, Garvin helps coach his grandson’s baseball team. other dozen years coaching track. “Whatever’s in season,” said Garvin of his coaching career. He says he’s been lucky in life; finding a career he loved, marrying his high school sweetheart, and being blessed with good health. Now it’s time to take things a little easier. But friend Tom Boxberger, whose daughter Elyse plays softball with Garvin’s granddaughter, Kenzie, said there’s noth-

ing relaxed about Garvin’s approach to his assistant coaching job for the girls team. Garvin pitches in to help his son Jay, who’s the head coach, for the offseason team. Boxberger says he and Garvin will be hanging out at some softball tournament, and Garvin will pull a little book out of his back pocket. It’s a scouting report for other teams and players he’s compiled through the years.

“He’ll know what some of these girls did at some tournament three years ago in Lee’s Summit,” Boxberger said. The somewhat obsessive attention to detail isn’t restricted to the players. Boxberger says Garvin always knows the umpires’ names, and he’s even caught Garvin writing their names on the inside of his hand before games. Lawrence High School baseball coach Brad Stoll, who coached with Garvin for six years, said that

dedication to detail made him a great addition to his coaching staff. “Fundamentals. Fundamentals. Fundamentals,” Stoll said. “Even if you fail at something, you do the little things right.” Garvin had a way of being firm and tough, but was never the yelling and screaming type, Stoll said. “I never heard him raise his voice,” Stoll said. But, “he could easily turn a baseball practice into a cross country meet.” It was well-known by the players that mistakes in practice would be rewarded with a wide variety of running punishments. “It had to be done a certain way,” Garvin said. “You couldn’t cut corners.” Garvin — an Atchison native — spent two years at Highland Community College before coming to the University of Kansas. Despite a love of sports and playing basketball and baseball in high school, Garvin’s original plan was to become a civil engineer. He dropped out of KU and spent a year working for an engineering firm in Topeka, but wasn’t sold on it as a career path.

“It was time to have a change of course,” he said. Garvin sat down with his now wife, Jane, and they “figured it all out.” He liked sports and teaching others, and figured being a teacher and coach wouldn’t be a bad life. Garvin received his bachelor’s and master’s from KU in recreational administration and started at South Junior High for the first of his 33 years — 10 spent as a math teacher, 23 as a physical education teacher. The couple raised two children here in Lawrence — and now have three grandchildren — and Jane worked at a local preschool for many years. In all his years coaching, Garvin said it’s the ‘thankyou’ letters and cards he gets from former players that mean the most. He realizes he was tough on players, but hopes in the end, they realize “it was well worth it.” “Pressure. Pressure. Pressure,” said Garvin of his practices. “But we still had fun.” Garvin’s definition of fun? “When you have success. Wow.”

FREE STATE SOCCER COACH KELLY BARAH SHARES A LAUGH with participants in his Boot Camp program in the weight room at FSHS.

Free State coach Barah forges community around ubuntu By Benton Smith basmith@ljworld.com

His persona is one of inclusion. Anyone who has spent any sizable amount of time on Free State High’s campus surely recognizes his welcoming smile and the distinct accent that doubles as the only proof he hasn’t lived in Lawrence his entire life. Kelly Barah grew up thousands of miles from Lawrence. A native of Cameroon, where his lifelong devotion to the sport known there as football began, Barah coaches soccer and teaches biology at FSHS. The Firebirds head coach has so vigorously embraced his role with the boys and girls soccer teams that his devotion has forged a genuine community among players, parents and coaches. Barah first came to Lawrence in 2003 to get his degree in human biology at Kansas University. “I loved the place way too much to leave,” he said. Eventually, Barah found his niche with Free State soccer, first as an assistant to former head coach Jason Pendleton. Now in his second year leading the Firebirds, Barah has constructed a family environment using ubuntu, an African philosophy that means “I am who I am because of who we are.” It has become Free State’s soccer slogan. Said Barah: “I see this

program as being a community thing, it’s a collective thing.” Operating on a plane where winning and personal connections share equal importance, the coach set out to get soccer parents involved in his burgeoning colony. Barah’s offseason conditioning program immediately drew attention, because the coach kept it intense, but wasn’t afraid to mix things up by using workouts that weren’t necessarily traditional, such as yoga for flexibility. Wanting to fully enjoy the training and make it a family affair, Barah thought: “Why not throw some parents in there?’” This past fall he introduced Saturday morning boot camps for the players’ mothers and fathers. Personal training is one of Barah’s loves, and he wanted to help people in his soccer family interested in getting into shape. For about an hour each week, he leads the group in lunges, ab exercises and anything else he can concoct, such as whipping a giant gymnasium rope, to get the parents’ heart rates up through fat-burning labor. When Missy Allen first saw her sons Nick and Chris go through summer workouts, she thought the activities looked fun but nearly impossible for her to duplicate. Upon joining boot camp, Allen got past her “no way can I do

that” mindset with Barah’s help. She said the coach’s acceptance of the dozen or more parents and their varying abilities made that possible. “He has a way of bringing about the best in you,” Allen said, “in a very understated, quiet way.” That’s the same kind of response Barah gets from his players. Free State senior goalkeeper Elena Auer said the Firebirds love their coach’s approach. “He’s very positive about everything,” Auer said. “He’ll let you know what you’re doing wrong, but you won’t take it personally.” Plus, junior Abbey Casady said, Barah makes a point to connect with people and understand personal outlooks. “He is really good at thinking of everyone individually,” she said. Boot camps were just the beginning. This spring, Barah added a 30day challenge regimen for the parents. On weekday evenings, when Free State doesn’t have a game, Barah leads workouts after he gets done with soccer practice. On game nights, the parents get “homework” assignments. Brian Gay and his wife, Lisa, have enjoyed sharing a coach with their son, Zach. Brian called Barah a great motivator, citing exercises geared for what each individual can do. He said workouts don’t seem

to go as quickly on homework nights, when Barah isn’t around to keep saying “five more seconds.” “I think his personality,” Brian said, “is just that you almost don’t realize or even know you’re working out.” Allen said Barah’s encouraging phrases, such as “Do your best, forget the rest,” are what keep parents coming back.

KU BASKETBALL COACH BILL SELF CELEBRATES AN OVERTIME WIN against Missouri on Feb. 25, 2012. At center, behind Self, is Safety Sgt. Gary Wieden, with KU Public Safety, who has had the job of “guarding” Self for the past two years. Self considers Wieden a good-luck charm. The only time Wieden didn’t guard Self? A rare home loss to Texas in 2011.

Guarding Self ‘dream job’ By Shaun Hittle sdhittle@ljworld.com

After the Kansas University men’s basketball team lost to the Texas Longhorns last year at Allen Fieldhouse, coach Bill Self approached KU Public Safety Sgt. Gary Wieden. You see, for the past two years, Wieden’s been the officer responsible for guarding Self at home games. Because of other police responsibilities, Wieden wasn’t at his typical game-day spot, right behind Self. “He was not happy I was not there,” Wieden said. “I thought he was joking.” But along with all the other inside knowledge Wieden gleans from his access as Self’s bodyguard during games, he’s learned Self is a superstitious man. The look on Self’s face

let Wieden know he was serious. Since then, it’s only been Wieden tasked with protecting perhaps Lawrence’s most popular person. Getting great seats, and seeing the KU team up close, is a special honor for a lucky KU public safety officer. “This is a real dream job,” said Wieden, a Jayhawk fan. “It’s a real plus.” Much better than directing traffic on cold, windy game days, something Wieden had done for many years before moving up to Self’s bodyguard. It took Wieden — a public safety officer for 33 years and former Jayhawk — three decades to earn the honor. The KU Public Safety Department has always had a bodyguard for the opposing coach, but started protecting Self a few

years back, just in case, said Chris Keary, KU Public Safety spokesman. Guarding Self is usually a fairly easy gig, Wieden said. Who would want to hurt the man who’s won eight straight Big 12 championships for the Jayhawks? “It’s a love fest,” Wieden said. Wieden meets Self when he shows up at Allen Fieldhouse, and then basically “shadows” the coach to the locker room, and sits right behind him during the game. Sometimes, Wieden has to quickly shuttle Self through crowds. But there’s never been a real tense situation, Wieden said. Because Self ends up on camera a lot, so does Wieden — who stands out with a bald head and goatee. Wieden says he is often recognized out in

Lawrence and frequently hears, “Hey, you’re the guy behind the bench.” It adds up to a lot of fun for his family; Wieden has three grown children and 11 grandchildren who love spotting him on camera. He even gets recognized out-of-state by diehard Jayhawk fans. Most recently, Wieden said he was recognized when he got off a plane in South Carolina. While it’s a mostly fun job, Wieden said it’s not without its risks. With all the cameras, Wieden says he needs to pay attention to the game to avoid Wieden’s biggest nightmare: getting clocked in the head by an errant ball. “The last thing I need to be is a highlight on SportsCenter,” he said. — Reporter Shaun Hittle can be reached at 832-7173.

Group keeps fieldhouse clean By Andy Hyland ahyland@ljworld.com

Just minutes after the (usually happy) fans begin to file out of Allen Fieldhouse after a Kansas basketball game, another team begins warming up. Usually before the last fans have left the building, a group that typically numbers about 30 people gets to work on a task that will usually take at least five to six hours, and that’s if they’re lucky and skilled. After all, someone needs to pick up all that shredded newspaper students toss in the air and the rest of the leftover trash. And that task falls to KU student organizations and nonprofit groups of all kinds who sign up for the chore in return for some cash for their group. “It’s too much for our day-to-day staff to handle,” said Casey Cook, director of events and facilities for Kansas Athletics Inc. Cook said many of the groups are student organizations looking for extra cash, but they get churches and other nonprofits from throughout the region. Returning groups have a draft each year to determine which groups get which games, and how many games each group wants to do. Men’s games pay $2,200, and women’s games start at $700 but can increase based on attendance. Women’s games against Missouri and Kansas State, for example, typically pay

KANSAS UNIVERSITY STUDENT KATY SACKUVICH, A FIFTH-YEAR SENIOR FROM OLATHE, is part of the reason Allen Fieldhouse gets clean following home games. Sackuvich and other members of the Betty’s and Horror Zontals, the women’s and men’s ultimate Frisbee club teams, spend about six hours, four to six times a year cleaning the historic building. more, Cook said. Groups can earn an extra amount for recycling the plastic bottles they find, he said. Vanessa Ernst, a junior from St. Joseph, Kan., helps pick up trash for her student athletic training group. “It’s more of a mental than a physical thing,” she said. “Everybody has gloves on. We literally are picking up little pieces of popcorn.” A final check to see whether the groups have cleaned up the fieldhouse adequately can take 45 minutes, Ernst said. Katy Sackuvich, a senior from Olathe, is a pro at this. Her ultimate Frisbee women’s team pairs with the men’s team, and she estimates she’s pulled

fieldhouse cleanup duty at least 25 times or so over the years. At the draft, she recommends going for winter break games, where fewer students typically attend. She recalled one game a few years ago against Missouri where she went home at 6:30 a.m. because she had an 8 a.m. class, and the group was still working. KU provides leaf blowers, and teams get to work right away. Sackuvich said it’s best to work from the top down, making a sweep to pick up the bigger items, and then coming back around with the leaf blowers. “There’s enormous amounts of newspaper,” she said.

In fact, when she goes to games, she doesn’t throw any newspaper, because she knows how much of a pain it is to pick up. “You really learn to hate that tradition,” she said. Cook said the athletic department does a similar program at Memorial Stadium after football games, but those cleanups are typically done starting on Sunday morning. Sackuvich said she’s managed to find all sorts of things mixed in with that trash. Credit cards, cell phones, car keys, glasses (with a pretty thick prescription), shoes and even a pair of pants. “I don’t know how you leave your shoes or pants at Allen Fieldhouse,” she said.

Danny Lenz is the kind of guy who is there when you have a question. He’ll stick by your side if your parents can’t make it to a game and tease you when you’ve done something silly. And, he’s always the one standing on the sideline cheering. That’s according to Lisa Young, one of the athletes in the Douglas County Special Olympics program. “He is like a big brother,” Young said. Lenz is program director for the Douglas County Special Olympics program. And he has been “adopted” as a big brother by many. Sherrie and Larry Saathoff’s daughter Becky competes in just about every sport the program has to offer and they consider Lenz to be like a son to them. “Becky sometimes gets confused and calls him her stepbrother,” Sherrie Saathoff said. “But she considers him her brother and he considers her his sister.” As the local program director Lenz is the one who sets up team rosters, makes sure facilities are available for practices and schedules the bus trips for out-of-town tournaments. He’s at nearly every practice and uses about a week of vacation time every year to attend Special Olympics events. “He’s the driver,” Connie Warkins said of Lenz’s involvement in an organization that has more than 100 athletes and nearly a dozen sports. Saathoff recruited Lenz into Special Olympics when he was a student working part-time in Kansas University’s special education department. Saathoff was looking for a soccer coach and Lenz had played soccer competitively in high school and for fun in college. Lenz agreed to coach and loved it. “That was it, we roped him in,” Saathoff said. That winter he went on to coach basketball and stuck around for track and swimming in the spring. By summer, he had been asked to be the program’s sports coordinator. “It was my first opportunity in a leadership position in any sort of an organization,” Lenz said. Lenz has no children in Special Olympics and the many hours he puts into the program are 100-percent volunteer. The 30-year-old’s day job is with the budget and financial planning office for Johnson County government. “He gives up a lot of his time,” Warkins said. “There would be a lot of people that would be out (partying) at that age.” As much as he has given the athletes, Lenz said he

has benefited just as much in return. “It’s given me confidence and an opportunity to see what I could do and to develop in an environment where the parents never criticized me,” he said. Working with people who have disabilities is a family affair for Lenz. His father earned a Ph.D. in special education at KU. His mother has worked with the special populations through the city of Lawrence’s Parks and Recreation Department. And, his brother organizes the parks and rec’s special population sports leagues. But, probably the most influential person was Lenz’s aunt, who had Down’s syndrome. Although the two were more than 10 years apart in age, when Lenz was a preteen, they had both reached a similar level of maturity. “We used to bicker and bicker and bicker, just like siblings,” Lenz said. But having his aunt in his life also taught him important social cues. “It probably made it easier to grow up with someone with special needs. You understand immediately how to interact and joke around.” Parents and athletes alike note Lenz’s ability to connect with the athletes. “He is just a fun guy. He jokes around with them and by joking around he has built their respect and they want to do well for him,” Saathoff said. In a sense, Lenz has grown up with some of the athletes. Saathoff’s daughter Becky sat beside him in elementary school. And, Warkins’ daughter Jessie was a student in his mother’s classroom when she was a para educator at Hillcrest. The two still routinely see each other. “I think he really loves the athletes and really enjoys it,” Warkins said. Over the years, Lenz has had a mixture of funny, heartwarming and triumphant experiences. There was the athlete who in the middle of a close volleyball match reached down to pick up a penny just as the ball was headed toward him. And he remembers a race where an athlete approached the finish line close to tears because he was so exhausted from running as hard as he could. Lenz remembers the excitement of hearing that one of his athletes — weight lifter Brady Tanner — was headed to the Special Olympics World Games. And this winter, he watched a Douglas County team play at the Kansas City Municipal Auditorium during the halftime of women basketball’s Big 12 championship game. “They were loving it, absolutely loving it,” he said.

“I think he really loves the athletes and really enjoys it.”

THIS PHOTOGRAPH, SHOWN FULL-FRAME, was taken through a chain link fence using a telephoto lens and a fairly large aperture. This combination creates a shallow depth of field and made the fence almost invisible. Best results are with a fixed subject, long telephoto lens, large aperture and the lens right up against the fence.

where the links intersect. Start photographing. (If your P&S lens is small enough, it may actually fit through the link fence, in which case this technique is not required.) This is the best way to photograph specific players or bases where you can maintain the same framing on the subject, but it is not well-suited for following action on the field. Any movement of the camera, in relation to the fence, can affect the clarity of images. When I use this technique I’m usually framing tight on a pitcher from behind home plate with my lens pressed right up against the fence. Results depend a lot on your equipment. What is happening is that the telephoto lens and large aperture combine to create a shallow depth of field. This means objects near or up against the lens, like chain links crossing through the corners of your frame, are less perceptible. In some cases, evidence of the fence disappears. No, you wouldn’t want to cover a whole game using this technique, but it can improve your chances of getting cleaner photos of your favorite players. At least it’s a better option than bolt cutters. — Chief photographer Mike Yoder can be reached at 832-7141.

They know the differences. Students who perform in these halls notice the work they did is not for no reason.” Chu, herself a classically trained musician, says hosting KU performances fits in well with the mission of the Kauffman Center, which also has funds available for K-12 students available to attend performances. She is hoping to develop additional, formal agreements with the KU School of Music. But for now, the goal has been to perfect her own performance spaces with acoustical tweaks. In terms of acoustical performances without amplification, she says, “we would not have done a thing different.” The organization is still adjusting amplified performances. “This is like raising a 7-month-old,” she says. “You don’t just walk away.” Though the center is in its infancy, KU performers such as Sussman are still excited about the opportunity. “With that energy and ambience,” she says, “I’ve never performed anywhere like the Kauffman Center. It makes me excited about the places I’d like to perform in my career.”

Cubism? Rubik helps with anniversary exhibit JERSEY CITY, N.J. (AP) — It’s a puzzle, a metaphor and a hit toy — and in a couple of years, the Rubik’s Cube will be a museum exhibition in celebration of its 40th anniversary. The toy’s creator, Erno Rubik, 67, is being honored Friday at a gala at the Liberty Science Center in Jersey City. He has traveled from his native Budapest, Hungary, to help develop the exhibit, which will open in April 2014. The exhibit is scheduled to travel for seven years to design and science museums around the world. Rubik was an architect teaching a class at the Budapest College of Applied Arts in 1974 when he decided to build a cube to teach students about 3-D space. He soon realized it could become a hit toy when students and fellow teachers couldn’t put it down. It was mass-marketed in the West in 1980 and has been an enduring sales hit, selling more than 500 million all over the world, not counting the counterfeits, according to Rubik. Rubik insists he “discovered” the cube rather than invented it. “In my view it’s part of nature, and it’s not an artificial object; it’s a natural one,” he said.

BOOKS Undreamt of success ‘Art of Fielding’ author has gone from poverty to literary fame By Steven Zeitchik Los Angeles Times

NEW YORK — There are author success stories. There’s winning the lottery. And then there’s Chad Harbach. A long-suffering, oftenstarving MFA graduate, Harbach spent much of his 20s Kirk Kirkland, and 30s working temp jobs self-employed, so he could write a novel, Lawrence sometimes with barely $100 “‘The Guitar Player’s in his bank account. Guide to Repair.’” He thought no one would ever read his book, titled “The Art of Fielding.” It featured, after all, some pretty ambitious literary writing, a prominent gay character and a baseball motif, all no-nos for anyone with aspirations to the fiction best-seller list. But after a decade of working and reworking, things began to turn around. Agency rejections turned into representation. Editor ambivalence transformed Erin Lavin, into interest. Harbach’s student, book, a tale of how lives Lawrence “Terry Pratchett’s ‘Men at at a fictional Midwestern university are toppled Arms.’ It’s great.” after a young shortstop’s wild throw, became almost magically sought-after — so much so that the publisher Little, Brown and Co. paid more than $650,000 to secure publishing rights during a fierce bidding war. Blurbs from John Irving and Jonathan Franzen followed. So did a Vanity Fair story Erin Breeden, school district employee, about Harbach and the back story of the book’s Lawrence “I’m looking for vegetarian publication. When the novel came out last Sepcookbooks.” tember to glowing reviews, “The Art of Fielding” had become a freight train. It has since sold more than 250,000 copies. HBO has optioned it in the hope of turning it into a series. But for all the envy his story might elicit, Harbach’s life since the frenzy has hardly been simple. As the book is released this month in paperback, and as the author prepares for an appearance at the Los Angeles Times Festival of Books, his rise has also led Ryan Young, some to paint a target on cook, his back. It also has highLawrence lighted a vexing question: “‘Euclid’s Window’ by Leonard Mlodinow.”

More specifically, what happens when you live in poverty for years, consumed with something no one knows or cares about, and then seemingly overnight become the kind of figure people flock to see, parsing every sentence you write as though it’s the word of God or, perhaps better, a new Harry Potter novel? “It’s a huge contrast, and I’m not sure I was really ready for it,” Harbach said, a few days before his festival appearance. “When I was writing all those years, I spent all this time thinking about something that you literally can’t talk about with anyone; no one wants to go through the intricate crises you’re going through writing a book. And then it all changes, and that’s all anyone wants to talk about.” “The Art of Fielding” concerns Henry Skrimshander, an unremarkable physical specimen who, thanks to a fictional baseball handbook and a kind of innate precociousness, becomes a prized shortstop at the fictional Midwestern Westish College. But his errant throw soon injures another player, causing a chain reaction that makes Henry question his own talent and sense of self. The novel is populated with light and whimsical characters — including his gay roommate Owen Dunne and the largerthan life university president, the avowed straight bachelor Guert Affenlight who finds himself pining for a man — as a campus novel’s themes of lost innocence play out against a backdrop of the diamond. After growing up in Racine, Wis., Harbach attended Harvard, where he studied Herman Melville and other American greats. Several years after graduation, having not written or published much, he was accepted to an MFA program at the University of Virginia in

CHARD HARBACH, pictured at the 2011 Texas Book Festival, went from rags to riches with the best-selling novel “The Art of Fielding.” Charlottesville after submitting a baseball-themed story set on a college campus, which he then tried to develop into a novel; he also co-founded a small literary magazine. Rejected countless times by the mainstream publishing apparatus, he was discovered by a New York literary agent named Chris Parris-Lamb, and the wheels for “The Art of Fielding” were finally in motion. Harbach’s editor, Little, Brown chief Michael Pietsch, acknowledges that “The Art of Fielding” was “one of the hardest kind of books to launch, because when you describe it, it sounds like something totally unsurprising — a baseball novel about falling in love.” He said he believed it was the prose that ultimately persuaded critics and readers. “The key to marketing is the book itself. We knew it would win over anyone who picked it up.” Not every reader or critic has found it so winning, and the result has been something of a backlash. No critique was as ferocious as the one from the essayist B.R. Myers, who in a piece in the current issue of the Atlantic — seven months after the book came out — said Harbach’s tome was overhyped, because of the public’s lemming-like approach to literary fiction. Using words such as “shallow” and “trivial,” he

concluded that “The Art of Fielding” “was written for the none-too-intellectual people it depicts, both to amuse them and to plead for more inclusiveness on campuses.” In his characteristically restrained tone, Harbach said he hasn’t read the piece. “I’ve read B.R. Myers in the past and I stopped doing so a long time ago,” he said referring to the often contrarian writer. “I can imagine reading the piece, and if it costs me two hours of consternation, it’s not worth it.” Pietsch had a more direct response. “I didn’t know anyone still reads the Atlantic. And if they do, good for them,” he quipped. Since his fame has grown, Harbach has tried to stay focused. He still lives in his modest apartment in Charlottesville and continues to co-edit the literary magazine as he makes occasional trips to New York, where he would like to live after he finishes touring in the fall. Pietsch says that Harbach’s own Midwestern roots helped the author stay grounded. “When I first met Chad I noticed this clearly observing eye, but also felt this embodiment of sweetness and modesty,” he said. But modesty can also come with anxiety, compounded by the feeling any buzzed-about young novelist might have when they contemplate the question: What’s next?

KU student documents Brazilian shanty town By Chansi Long

Eliza Partridge, 3-year-old, Lawrence “A Spider-Man book.”

Sarah Stern, a Lawrence native and Kansas University junior, still thinks about Rocinha. It’s been a year since her trip to the Brazilian favela, but her memories are still clear and unshakable. They are the sort of memories that create stories that last a lifetime. Stories that shape, resonate and linger. Many of the moments lodged in Stern’s memory are also preserved in a photography book, which was released this month. The book, “Favela Da Rocinha, Brazil” is a photography project that captures community life in Brazil’s largest favela, or shanty town. The book also contains personal essays and a 14-page forward (written by James R. Hugunin, an art professor at the Art Institute of Chicago) and 139 photos. Stern, 21, earned a William Randolph Hearst nomination for a few of her photos, which will appear in the book.

Gary Mark Smith and Sarah Stern In the book there are pictures of people riding motor scooters, flying kites and sweeping streets. There are photos of colorful shanties nearly stacked on top of one another. And there are pictures of children playing in alleys, oblivious to the poverty all around them. One hundred percent of the money earned from book sales will benefit the city of Rocinha through free art classes for underprivileged youth.

“I think it’s rare that you can buy a book that not only can you put on your coffee table … but 100 percent of what you spend is going right back to the community that made the book,” Stern says. “I think that it’s a really good opportunity to feel … good about purchasing something.” Gary Mark Smith will be spearheading the education initiative. Smith collaborated on the project with Stern, and he’ll be traveling back to Rio de Janeiro in the Brazilian spring, or winter of 2013, for a month and a half. He’ll teach photography classes and make sure everything gets under way without any hiccups. Smith will also take pictures for the second installment of what he says will be an eight-year project. Wanting to document the transformation of Rocinha before and after pacification — a crackdown on gang and drug crime — Smith plans to return to the favela several times until 2019.

“(The project) had to start before pacification. … I foresaw that the gangs were going to be pacified and that it would be a big story,” Stern says. “I fully expect the gangs to be back (after the 2016 Summer Olympics). I’m going back to see if I was wrong or right.” For the first leg of the project, Stern, Smith and another photographer, Carlos Beltran, lived in Rocinha for three weeks. They stayed in the favela before Brazil’s pacification process began, meaning the streets were riddled with gang members. Avoiding the crime circuit, Stern, Smith and Beltran photographed and filmed the everyday life of Rocinha residents. Focusing on the community members, the photographers avoided the gang lords and gangsters who strolled the streets brandishing weapons. But they were unintentionally roped into the gang circuit. One day Smith, known for plugging himself into danger-

ous situations — he’s photographed floods, warfare and volcanic eruptions — decided to take pictures without a guide. The act was forbidden by the gangs. Within 10 minutes, Smith’s camera was seized by gang members. Later on, Stern met “Nem,” the notorious gang leader, who gave Smith’s camera back. But all of this is peripheral detail for much larger focus. The group’s intention was to capture community life in Rocinha. Pictures of this community life fill the pages of the book. And it’s this bustling community life that makes Stern yearn to return to the favela. “Sometimes time goes by and you stop missing a place,” Stern says. “But I still find myself missing Rocinha, missing the girls I lived with, missing my day-to-day there. I still want to go back. There’s nothing like Rocinha.” The book can be purchased at rocinhathebook. com for $35.95.

The gang’s all here: ‘Avengers’ kicks off summer movie season

What’s your favorite movie about religion? Scene in ‘Contact’ sums up faith

By Eric Melin

The summer movie season starts next weekend, and it starts big. It’s so big, in fact, that our coverage had to be split up into two articles. Here’s a look at what Hollywood has in store for the first half of what the studios hope will be a blockbuster summer.

“The Avengers” (May 4) Writer/director Joss Whedon, the comic-fan favorite behind cult TV shows “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” and “Firefly,” is the man that Marvel Studios entrusted with their most valuable superhero movie to date. “The Avengers” stars Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man, Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Chris Evans as Captain America, Mark Ruffalo as Hulk, Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow, and Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye — six super-powered characters who must form an unlikely alliance to do nothing less than save the world. In bringing together the stars from four previous blockbuster pictures (Ruffalo replaces Edward Norton from “The Incredible Hulk”) with the tiniest of story threads to connect them, Marvel is playing a long-term, highstakes game. Early reports seem to suggest they’ll be rewarded handsomely. For it: Whedon excels at writing for ensembles, and his 2006-2008 run of writing Astonishing XMen for Marvel is still one of the company’s bestselling comics to date. Whedon knows what comic fans want. Against it: If there has ever been a recipe for a Hulk-sized letdown, this is it. For a movie with this much anticipation, is it possible to live up to expectations?

IRON MAN, PORTRAYED BY ROBERT DOWNEY JR., left, and Captain America, portrayed by Chris Evans, are shown in a scene from “The Avengers,” which opens Friday. the pranks and nonactors in “Borat” and “Brüno” be missing in a fully scripted Baron Cohen comedy?

“Moonrise Kingdom” (May 25) Although “The Royal Tenenbaums” and “Fantastic Mr. Fox” have pretty big followings, mainstream success has yet to find writer/director Wes Anderson. If the brightly-colored, meticulously framed look of his upcoming ensemble film “Moonrise Kingdom” is any indication, Anderson is sticking to his guns. Although the movie stars Bruce Willis, Edward Norton, Tilda Swinton and Anderson regular Bill Murray, its stars are two young lovers (Kara Hayward and Jared Gilman) who flee a New England island town while a search party heads out to locate them. For it: It definitely looks to be a breath of fresh air from the blockbuster mentality of summer films, and Anderson’s movies are always beautiful to look at. Against it: He’ll need a better script than his last live-action film “The Darjeeling Limited,” which was co-written, like this “Dark Shadows” (May 11) one, with Roman Coppola.

The Rev. Kara Eidson, minister, Wesley KU, 946 Vt.: I could spend several years writing an article every week about my favorite movies with religious themes. However, because I have to narrow it down to just one, I choose Robert Zemeckis’ 1997 “Contact,” based on Carl Sagan’s 1985 novel by the same name. (For those not familiar with the film, check out the full synopsis at imdb. to/3cxprn.) The film follows Ellie Arroway (Jodie Foster), who spends her life searching for extraterrestrial life, gleaning from her father, “If it’s just us, it seems like an awful waste of space.” But Ellie is searching for far more than aliens; Ellie is searching for meaning and purpose. When Ellie discovers a radio signal that proves the existence of extraterrestrials, the entire world responds. After Ellie travels through space and meets the alien beings, she returns to Earth to find that her entire journey has taken only seconds of Earth time; thus, many

politicians and nonscientific individuals doubt Ellie traveled anywhere. The majority of Eidson people believe she simply dreamed her encounter with the aliens. She responds at a hearing: “I had an experience. … I can’t prove it, I can’t explain it, but everything that I know as a human, everything that I am tells me that it was real! I was given something wonderful, something that changed me forever. A vision that tells us how rare and precious we all are … that none of us are alone! I wish I could share that awe and humility, and hope.” I have often felt that this science-fiction film sums up my faith beautifully in this one scene — that the vision I find in the Gospel tells me we are not alone; that within my faith I find awesome humility, but also awesome hope for humankind. — Send email to Kara Eidson at kara.eidson@ku.edu.

Stiller), Marty the zebra (Chris Rock), Melman the giraffe (David Schwimmer), and Gloria the hippo (Jada Pinkett Smith) from the first two animated DreamWorks “Madagascar” movies are back again for more 3-D hijinks. This time, while avoiding animal control, they get stuck touring with a European circus that’s seen better days. For it: The franchise’s creators, Eric Darnell and Tom McGrath are still in charge, and they brought in indie auteur Noah Baumbach (weird!) to help write the script this time out. Against it: It’s another freaking animated talkinganimal movie. With all the limitless possibilities animation has to offer, why do we still get talking animals 90 percent of the time?

“Prometheus” (June 8) Ridley Scott, the man who directed “Alien” and “Blade Runner,” returns to the sci-fi genre for the first time in 30 years with “Prometheus,” a movie about the crew of a spaceship in the 21st century exploring an ancient alien civilization. The film — starring Michael Fassbender, Charlize Theron, Idris Elba, and Noomi Rapace among others — takes place in the same universe as 1979’s “Alien” and could be considered a prequel, although co-writer Damon Lindelof (TV’s “Lost”) maintains it is a standalone story. For it: Scott’s other two sci-fi entries are now considered classics, and “Prometheus” seems to be exploring what it means to be human, a theme at the core of “Blade Runner.” Against it: 2010’s “Robin Hood” showed a little fatigue from the director, who recycled ideas from his own “Gladiator” and “Kingdom of Heaven.” Is returning to the world of “Alien” the act of a creatively desperate man? “Rock of Ages” (June 15) Songs from REO Speedwagon, Poison, and Twisted Sister form the soundtrack to this musical from “Hairspray” director Adam Shankman, adapted from the hit Broadway play. Tom Cruise goes ’80s hair metal as Stacee Jaxx, the lead singer of a fictional

’80s rock band, and Alec Baldwin plays the owner of L.A. club The Bourbon Room — a place where waitresses and busboys dream of becoming rock stars and actresses. There’s no doubt that dreams will come true in this feel-good musical, but the real question will be whether audiences can’t fight this feeling any longer. For it: Well, it’s a big hit on Broadway and a touring company takes it out on the road, so somebody must like it. That’s a good sign, right? Against it: The gloriously awful wigs worn by seemingly everyone in the cast, especially Baldwin. Can big movie stars get dolled up in ’80s rock outfits and actually be convincing, or will the movie seem like one big, lame Halloween party?

“Brave” (June 22) America’s premier animation studio releases its first nonsequel in three years, and it features a female protagonist that’s good with a bow and arrow. Katniss Everdeen, anyone? Actually, “Brave” is set in the Scottish highlands in the 10th century and is a darker tone than most children’s films. Pixar considers this its first fairy tale, modeled after the ever-popular stories of the Brothers Grimm and Hans Christian Andersen. For it: With six Best Animated Film Oscars under its belt, the Pixar track record is pretty great. Against it: Pixar is coming off its first critical disappointment, last year’s “Cars 2,” and “Brave” weathered a public directorial change early on its development. Part II will include: “Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter” (June 22) “The Amazing SpiderMan” (July 3) “The Dark Knight Rises” (July 20) “Neighborhood Watch” (July 27) “The Bourne Legacy” (Aug. 3) “Total Recall” (Aug. 3) “The Expendables 2” (Aug. 17) — Read more about movies from Eric Melin every Friday on his Scene Stealers blog on Lawrence.com.

‘Lord of the Rings,’ ‘Nacho Libre’ succeed on spiritual levels Deacon Godsey, pastor of vision implementation at Vintage Church, Liberty Memorial Central Middle School, 1400 Mass.: For a movie lover and pastor, this is a hard question. I love movies and respect the art of filmmaking; that being said, I don’t typically enjoy “religious” movies for reasons too numerous to mention. I guess I could say movies such as “The Passion of the Christ,” “The Ten Commandments,” “Ben Hur,” etc. And while those are well-made films, I can’t call them my “favorites.” If a movie is to reach that level, it has to stick with me. It has to stir my heart, make me laugh, challenge me to think and make me want to come back to it again and again. With that in mind, my favorites include: In the “stirs my heart” category: “The Miracle Maker.” With voice talents like Ralph Fiennes and William Hurt, and the incomparable story of the life of Jesus, this film stirs my heart with gratitude and inspires awe at His

humanity, compassion and power. In the “makes me laugh” category: “Nacho Libre.” Godsey I know that might sound like an odd choice, but the religious themes are prevalent throughout, and when Jack Black appears on screen I start laughing. In the “challenges me to think” category: “Doubt.” Based on a play by the same name, its content is not without controversy, but the performances and dialogue do an incredible job of causing you to think deeply and to ask hard questions. Finally, in the “again and again” category: “The Lord of The Rings” trilogy. These movies succeed on almost every conceivable level, with spiritual parallels that capture my heart, stir my imagination and a story that inspires me to live the life I’m called and designed to live. — Send email to Deacon Godsey at deacon@vintagelawrence.com.

Evans feels the power in ‘Avengers’ LOS ANGELES — Chris Evans could feel the power of “The Avengers” from the moment he stepped on set. Reprising his role as Captain America, the 30-yearold actor joins Robert Downey Jr.’s Iron Man, Chris Hemsworth’s Thor, Jeremy Renner’s Hawkeye, Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow and Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury in the long-awaited Marvel superhero romp, in theaters May 4. Just seeing his co-stars in their costumes was exciting, Evans said — especially on the first day of shooting with Downey and Hemsworth. “I’d never seen either one of them before in their outfits. Obviously I loved the ‘Iron Man’ movies and I had just seen ‘Thor’ in the theater like a week prior, and I remember coming to set and seeing both of them suited up and just thinking, I think my initial thought was, ‘God, I wish I could work with those guys,’” he said. “And the immediate afterthought was,

‘(Expletive) I am! I am! I’m in a suit too! I can’t believe this!’ So that was a really nice geek moment for me.” Downey, who already starred in two blockbuster “Iron Man” films, was like the leader of the pack, Evans said, establishing a warm feeling on set that fostered camaraderie among the cast. “He’s the reason these movies are happening: If Iron Man had not done well, obviously we would not be doing these movies,” he said. “He’s like the matriarch. He’s the dad. If he would have come to set with a different attitude or certain disposition, the fish could rot from the head down. I can’t say enough about the guy. He’s such an amazing man: His energy and his positivity and his friendliness and his charm, it just breeds allegiance, and as a result everyone just fell in line and it became a family right away, kind of thanks to him.”

Art in Motion to bring upbeat energy gy to Dance Carnival

For a bedroom that whispers “stay awhile…”

By Chris Hong chong@ljworld.com

Cathy Patterson has heard people’s reservations about dance performances: “They’re boring” and “the music isn’t fun.” But Patterson, director of the Art in Motion Dance Company, says the routines she’s choreographed for the group’s upcoming Dance Carnival are upbeat and energetic. “We bring art and up-to-date edginess together,” says Patterson, whose 28-member company sweated through a rehearsal last Sunday at Point B Dance Studio, 3115 W. Sixth St. The fourth iteration of the Dance Carnival takes place Thursday, Friday and Saturday the Lawrence Arts Center, and includes a wide variety of jazz, hip-hop and contemporary music. With glittery numbers by pop stars Kesha, Lady Gaga and Britney Spears, an ode to the Eagles’ “Hotel California,” and a routine inspired by India’s Bollywood scene, Patterson expects to give skeptics a reason to appreciate modern dance. At rehearsal last Sunday afternoon, Point B Dance studio felt like a sauna. Temperatures rose as company members

stretched, swayed and strutted to pop hits and modern jazz numbers. Dressed in a maroon sweatshirt, baggy black sweatpants and black adidas sneakers, Patterson directs the dancers as they rehearse in front of a mirrored wall in the modestly sized studio. At first, they slowly practice individual

segments. Then, Patterson tturns the music on, and tthe company bursts into llife. True to her words, the rroutine is energetic. The dance is full of fast bursts aand graceful moves as the dancers keep perfect time with the beat. w Tara Truitt, a senior at Kansas University from K Springhill, joined the comS pany three years ago. She p danced in high school and didn’t want to stop in colllege. It’s a big commitment, she says, but she likes dancing as much as she can. Shon Mack is a member of the company and a teacher at the studio. Even though he works five days a week in Topeka, he is at the studio every Sunday morning. “It’s all fun, but we’re ready to work,” he says. “We feed off each other’s energy.”

Kate & Wills eye 1-year anniversaryy LONDON (AP) — With her first wedding anniversary today, the former Kate Middleton’s transformation into a highly regarded member of the royal family is nearly complete. She is now the Duchess of Cambridge, a striking woman who is comfortable speaking in public, going to charity events with husband Prince William or having tea with Queen Elizabeth II, her grandmother-in-law. But the best times seem to be the quiet moments — walking in the wilds of North Wales with William and their black cocker spaniel puppy, Lupo.

“The main point is that they look as if they’re enjoying themselves,” said Ingrid Seward, editor-inchief of Majesty magazine. “The first year of marriage is difficult for everybody and they’ve adapted to their role admirably.” Seward believes the royal couple, who were college buddies before romance developed, have benefited tremendously from their long, solid friendship. The first year of their marriage has been largely free of controversy. “They were together a long, long time and maybe this is a demonstration of how much it helped for

them to be the friends that they are,” she said. Kate and William plan to celebrate their first anniversary today in private, palace officials said. On Thursday they visited the London headquarters of the MI6 intelligence agency, and also attended a reception, with Kate looking resplendent in a charcoal gray dress. The duchess has faced considerable pressure in her first year as she has eased into her increasingly public royal role, but she has avoided any missteps, seeming to have benefited from strong family support and good advice from palace professionals.

DAKOTA COLLINS HELPS DIG UP an expanded garden at Central Junior High School in this April 9, 2011, file photo. Douglas County has a new Community Gardening Toolkit, available at douglascountycommunitygardening.com and the county extension office.

frequent question to the garden hotline is: “My (church, school, organization, neighborhood, friends, etc.) want to start a garden. Can you help us?” Until recently, the Master Gardeners and I answered the call for new community gardens by directing interested parties to national and regional resources. Now, however, Douglas County has a community garden guide to call its own. Although community gardens are sometimes thought of as a place where people rent plots to garden for themselves, school gardens and other collaborative efforts are also sometimes identified as community gardens. To include all the different kinds of gardens, the American Community Gardening Association defines a community garden as any piece of land gardened by a group of people. The Douglas County Community Gardening Toolkit is geared at identifying local

I think there are gardens out there we don’t know about, or maybe people gardening with their neighbors who don’t have an official name for their garden. Part of the reason we developed the website is so that it can be easily updated.” — Shannan Seely, creator of the Douglas County Community Gardening Toolkit

efforts and contacts to help community garden organizers get started. The toolkit is available in print form from K-State Research and ExtensionDouglas County, 2110 Harper St., Lawrence, or online at douglascountycommunity gardening.com. Shannan Seely, who also serves as the Kaw Valley Farm Tour Coordinator, created the toolkit. “There is a lot of information on the Internet regarding community gardens and gardens in general, but this is a local resource,” Seely says.

Seely notes that while she was gathering information, she realized that a lot of community gardens in Lawrence were unaware of others. She thinks the resource can be valuable to existing gardens and gardeners to help us learn from each other. The toolkit includes some basic considerations for starting a garden, links to other resources, and examples of guidelines, policies, budgets, etc., from other community gardens. More importantly, it includes profiles and experiences of local gardens, some do’s and don’ts for Douglas County, and contacts for donations of excess garden produce.

Seely says the toolkit is a work in progress, however. “I think there are gardens out there we don’t know about, or maybe people gardening with their neighbors who don’t have an official name for their garden. Part of the reason we developed the website is so that it can be easily updated.” “We would love feedback,” she adds. “If there is a garden we missed, or if you have more information on an existing garden, please let us know.” Feedback, corrections and updates can be directed to KState Research and Extension– Douglas County at 843-7058 or by using the contact form on

the Douglas County Community Gardening website. Seely, who does not consider herself much of a gardener, says she learned a lot about community gardens while working on the toolkit. “So many things are hard when you take on a new hobby, especially as a family. This is something that is so manageable.” She also suggests using the guide to find opportunities to volunteer. School and organizational gardens are typically especially appreciative of volunteers to help manage their gardens. She recommends contacting the organization directly if interested. “One thing I’ve gathered with the contacts I’ve made is that people are really enjoying gardening together,” Seely says. — Jennifer Smith is the Horticulture Extension Agent for K-State Research and Extension in Douglas County.

Kovel’s Antiques: Popular hobby led to unique fishbowls By Terry Kovel

Did you have a bowl filled with pet fish when you were young? The idea dates back to the Roman Empire, when carp were kept in marble tanks. Once panes of glass were made, a pane could be used on one side of the tank so people could more easily watch the activities of the fish. The Chinese were making large porcelain tubs for goldfish by the 1400s. Copies of these tubs are still being made and sold, although they are usually used for plants, not fish. By the 19th century, there were aquariums and fish bowls that look like those found today. Raising fish became an important hobby, and the first public aquarium opened in 1853. By 1900, there were aquariums and fish bowls made in fanciful shapes, and some were

THIS UNUSUAL FISH BOWL was made by an unknown factory, but it appealed to bidders and sold for $2,540 at a December 2011 Humler and Nolan auction in Cincinnati. even part of a planter or lamp. It is said that keeping fish is one of America’s most popular hobbies. So

when a fishbowl topped by three ceramic polar bears was auctioned at Humler & Nolan in Cincinnati, it’s not surprising that it sold for $2,540. The fish bowl is cleverly designed. A porcelain “basket” holds an ice cave (the bowl). It’s topped by the bears, and openings show the bowl and active fish. It’s about 24 inches high and 15 inches in diameter, big enough to hold a few fish and plants. The bowl is lit from below. The maker is unknown, but it’s signed “Makonicka.” The bears and ice are designed in a style popular after 1890.

esting thing about it is that there’s a thick base under the tabletop that hides eight leaves. You can lift the top of the table and rotate the leaves out so they form a ring around the table, making the tabletop 80 inches in diameter. Have you ever seen a table like this? Your table is called a “perimeter table,” and the leaves are referred to as “perimeter leaves.” The style has been around for decades and some cabinetmakers are building them today. A U.S. patent for this sort of table was granted in 1911.

A: Harland Sanders (1890-1980) opened his first restaurant in Corbin, Ky., in 1930. The first Kentucky Fried Chicken franchise opened in 1952, and there were 600 by 1964. We have seen Col. Sanders weathervanes for sale at antique shows for about $500. But a few have sold at auction for $1,000 or more. Price depends not only on where and how you sell it, but also on condition. If your weathervane is not rusty and

the colors aren’t faded, contact an auction that specializes in advertising. You will have to pay a commission. Tip: If you buy an old teddy bear at a garage sale, bring it home and put it in a plastic bag with some mothballs for a few weeks. Don’t let the mothballs touch the bear. The fur and stuffing of old bears attract many types of hungry insects. — Terry Kovel answers as many questions as possible through the column.

Family must be told about child molester

Dear Annie: Two years ago, my younger sister learned that her grown daughter had been molested as a child by our then-teenage brother. I believe her, but was totally unaware of the situation, as I moved away nearly 25 years ago. Her daughter had a friend who was also molested. Both girls were under age 6 when this happened, and the molestation lasted several years. I urged my sister to seek professional help for her daughter and herself, and to find a way to approach the other young woman to let her know that we are now aware of what our brother did and offer our support. Since my children also were in contact with my brother during that time, I immediately asked them about this. They both said nothing happened. I’m pretty sure

Annie’s Mailbox

Marcy Sugar and Kathy Mitchell anniesmailbox@comcast.net

my daughter was not exposed to any harm, but there is a strong chance my son was molested, as he was never the same after one particular summer trip. In fact, he refused to ever visit his grandparents’ home again. I have heard nothing more about this in the two intervening years. I asked my sister whether the other girl had been contacted, etc., and was told this was a private matter and the discussion was closed. She says it happened a long

Ripa rips up TV Land Awards Proof that critical insights can arrive at any time: While I was in a dentist’s chair some months back, enduring a procedure that straddled the line between discomfort and pain, the hygienist left the television on for me. It was tuned to “Live! With Kelly,” a morning show hosted by Kelly Ripa. Fifteen seconds into her banal chitchat, I was praying for the drilling to resume. Ripa hosts the 10th Anniversary TV Land Awards (8 p.m. TV Land), honoring series from years past, including “Laverne and Shirley,” ‘‘In Living Color,” ‘‘One Day at a Time,” ‘‘Murphy Brown” and “Pee-wee’s Playhouse.” Aretha Franklin, who often served as Murphy Brown’s inspiration, also appears and receives a tribute. Look for cast members of the honored shows to make an appearance. Be warned: The proceedings close with Ripa dancing to the B-52s’ “Rock Lobster.” O Two current shows with cult audiences are heading into strange new territory. I’ve tried to make sense of the overlapping alliances and warring kingdoms on “Game of Thrones” (8 p.m., HBO). But like a lot of viewers, I have to settle for its impressive production values and epic scale. Look for things to take a supernatural turn now that the redhaired religious-leader lady has given “birth” to something that looks like the Smoke Monster from “Lost.” Folks who used to complain that “Mad Men” (9 p.m., AMC) was plodding along at a petty soap opera pace will probably start carping now that too many weird things are happening too quickly. A few weeks ago Don Draper seemed to go homicidal. (Whew! It was only a dream!) Last week he flipped out on his pretty new bride. Peggy had a sordid liaison in a movie theater — during “Born Free,” no less! And old-school Roger Sterling dropped acid! The times, on “Mad Men,” they are a-changin’!

Blind lawyer’s escape to overshadow talks between U.S., China By Bradley Klapper and Matthew Lee Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Less than a week before annual U.S.-Chinese diplomatic and economic talks, relations between the powers risked sharply deteriorating Saturday with an escaped Chinese activist reportedly under American protection and a U.S. fighter jet sale to Taiwan now being considered. Fellow activists say Chen Guangcheng, a blind lawyer who exposed f o r c e d abortions and sterilizations as part of C h i n a ’ s Chen one-child policy, fled house arrest a week ago and has sought protection at the U.S. Embassy in Beijing. Neither the U.S. nor Chinese government has confirmed the reports, but the saga looks set to overshadow this coming week’s Strategic and Economic Dialogue in the Chinese capital. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton and Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner are leading the U.S. side at the talks beginning Thursday. A potential further complication is a letter from the White House director of legislative affairs, Rob Nabors, to Sen.

John Cornyn, R-Texas, explaining that the Obama administration would consider selling new U.S. warplanes to Taiwan. A sale would infuriate China, which considers the island nation an integral part of its state even after their split more than six decades ago. Chen’s status and the fighter jets represent the latest strains in Washington and Beijing’s upand-down relationship in recent years. President Barack Obama has sought to “pivot” American military might and diplomatic energy toward Asia to improve America’s standing in the region and check the expansion of Chinese power, and achieved mixed results. The two issues underscore the fundamental disconnect between the world’s No. 1 and No. 2 economies, the top importer and exporter, and the biggest military and the fastest developing, on issues from human rights and Taiwan to currency policy and combating nuclear-armed North Korea and potentially nucleararmed Iran. A Texas-based activist group that has been active in promoting Chen’s case said China and the U.S. were discussing the fate of the 40-year-old. The U.S. Embassy in Beijing declined comment. Chinese Vice Foreign Minister Cui Tiankai said he had no information on Chen’s case.

Sheriff: Body found in Wash. bunker By Gene Johnson and Ted Warren Associated Press

NORTH BEND, WASH. — After a 22-hour standoff, police blew the top off a rugged mountain bunker near Seattle on Saturday, only to find their target — a man believed to be a murder suspect who holed up there — dead of a self-inflicted gunshot wound inside. Authorities had not positively identified the body as 41-year-old Peter Keller, who hadn’t been seen since his wife and daughter were found shot to death last weekend, King County sheriff’s Sgt. Katie Larson said. A bomb squad cleared the bunker, built into a ridge in the Cascade Mountains, to make sure there were no booby-traps before detectives entered. Officers shouted warnings before blowing the roof, Larson said. Tear gas pumped into the bunker didn’t work on Friday. With clear weather and a fresh SWAT team in place Saturday morning, it was time to act more aggressively, she said. It wasn’t clear if any officers had heard the gunshot from inside the bunker, she said. The raid ended a tense week for law enforcement officials who tried to track down Keller, a gun enthusiast described by his family as having a “survivalist mentality.” That Keller was likely armed and on the loose in an extremely popular hiking and mountain-biking area east of Seattle kept many people on edge. “There’s been a huge sigh of relief,” Larson said. “Our people are out safe, and

the trails are now safe for the community to use.” Keller had spent eight years building Keller the bunker into the side of Rattlesnake Ridge, police said. It was thoroughly camouflaged and had multiple levels. Photos of the inside of the bunker, released by the King County Sheriff’s Office, showed a shelf full of ammunition boxes stacked inside Ziploc bags. SWAT teams spent a grueling seven hours on the mountainside Friday morning, virtually crawling over dangerously steep terrain slick with mud from recent rains, before they found the bunker. A number of officers were treated intravenously for dehydration, and one broke his ankle, said sheriff’s Sgt. Cindi West said. Photographs found in Keller’s home after the killings gave authorities an idea of where it was; in one picture that they enhanced, detectives could make out buildings in nearby North Bend. Combined with reports from alert hikers who remembered seeing his faded red pickup truck at the Rattlesnake Ridge trailhead, the sheriff’s office sent experienced trackers to the area, where they found off-trail boot prints confirming their belief that he was somewhere on the ridge. The bunker was found at about the 1,350-foot level, several hundred yards due east of a trailhead at Rattlesnake Ridge. It had several entryways and ladders.

SECRET SERVICE

Scandal highlights lack of women in agency By Eric Tucker Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Secret Service agents are often portrayed in popular culture as disciplined, unflappable, loyal — and male. A spiraling prostitution scandal that has highlighted the dearth of women in the agency that protects the president and dignitaries has many wondering: Would more females in the ranks prevent future dishonor? Only about a tenth of field agents and uniformed officers are women, a shortage some attribute to travel demands that can be especially taxing on women balancing families and careers. A scandal that risks portraying the agency as unfriendly to women, however, could set back efforts to close the gender gap. “I can’t help but think that there would be some progress if there was more diversity and if there were more women that were there,” said Rep. Carolyn Maloney, D-N.Y., of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee. “When you have a diversity of people there, it brings more accountabil-

ity. What you see is a lack of accountability in this.” Women make up about 25 percent of the agency’s workforce, but only about 11 percent of agents and uniformed officers, said spokesman Ed Donovan. That’s significantly lower than the 19 percent of female special agents in the FBI, though higher than the 9.7 percent of special agents who are women in the Drug Enforcement Administration. The Secret Service does not provide gender breakdowns on the agents assigned to presidential details, though women have

been included on those assignments for years. The agency has aggressively recruited women, targeting female-oriented career fairs and sending brochures to colleges. “We all recognize that we want to get more women into the Secret Service,” Donovan said. But that wasn’t easy even before the prostitution embarrassment in Colombia, which unfolded two weeks ago when a dispute over payment between a prostitute and Secret Service officer spilled into a hotel hallway. A

dozen Secret Service employees and a dozen enlisted military personnel have been implicated. Although Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano said it appeared to be isolated, the agency has since confirmed it’s investigating if employees hired prostitutes and strippers ahead of President Barack Obama’s visit to El Salvador last year. The agency on Friday also announced stricter measures, including assigning chaperones on some trips to enforce new rules of conduct for agents and employees.
