Fabled SEAL Team Six ends hunt for bin Laden By Kimberly Dozier Associated Press Writer

WASHINGTON — Osama bin Laden’s death in a rippedfrom-a-spy-thriller helicopter raid and firefight gives a storied unit of U.S. special operations forces bragging rights for what has become the most famous covert operation since the Sept. 11 attacks launched on bin Laden’s orders. The unit, called Navy SEAL Team Six, probably won’t claim the credit publicly, however. U.S. officials, speaking on condition of anonymity, say units from SEAL Team Six dropped into bin Laden’s high-walled compound in Pakistan early Monday morning, sliding down ropes in the pre-dawn dark. The military won’t confirm which unit carried out the attack. But the head of the Navy SEALs, Rear Adm. Edward

After nearly a decade of anger and fear, America rejoiced Monday at the demise of Osama bin Laden, the terror mastermind behind the horrific 9/11 attacks. Navy SEALs who killed the world’s most-wanted terrorist seized a trove of al-Qaida documents to pore over, and President Barack Obama laid plans to visit New York’s ground zero. Bin Laden, killed in an intense firefight in a daring raid at his fortified hideout in

Pakistan, was hunted down based on information f irst gleaned years ago from detainees at secret CIA prison sites in Eastern Europe, officials disclosed. His body was quickly taken away for burial at sea, but not before a DNA match was done to prove his identity. A U.S. official said there also were photos showing bin Laden with the fatal wound above his left eye, a gunshot that tore away part of his skull. The photos were not immediately released.

KU students scrap together wind turbine for project By Christine Metz

KU ENGINEERING STUDENT NICK GARRETT TAKES NOTES as other project group members Brian Larkin and Brian Blackwell work on the mechanics of a wind turbine. The seniors are studying how to design a wind turbine with materials that are readily available in Third World countries. See the video at

When four mechanical engineering students were looking for a senior-year design project at Kansas University, they had three criteria in mind. It had to be something that had never been done at KU, incorporate alternative energy and help other people. The end result is a wind turbine made of wood, trash barrels, car parts and other items that can easily be scavenged in Third World countries. “We are looking at it as a philanthropic endeavor,” Brian Blackwell said. “We could still get all the engineering work, but we didn’t want something that would sit and never be used again.” The wind turbine spins on West Campus behind another KU student project: the Center for Design Research building being constructed by Studio 804. This winter, the group assembled the turbine just as it would be done in developing countries: with hand tools. The frame is built out of wood, the blades are concave pieces of trash barrels, while flanges, pipes, a car axle and stubs hold the turbine together. “Since the parts are recy-

clable and they aren’t brand new, we’ve had some troubles with failures,” Nick Garrett said. “But so far those failures are ones we have been able to correct. So our turbine is only getting better.” Along with Blackwell and Garrett, Brian Larkin and Tommy Hirst are working on the project. Soon, the group will put up more aerodynamic blades made from wood and covered in tarp. At wind speeds of 25 miles per hour, the turbine can generate as much as 500 watts of electricity. The energy would then be stored in a car battery that could be used to keep the

lights on longer or to power freezers and refrigerators. The students had South American countries in mind when they designed the turbine because of wind speeds on the continent and populations with fairly easy access to old car parts. With the semester about to end and several hiccups along the way, the group plans to hand the project over to a group of incoming seniors. And they fully intend to see the turbines built in Third World countries. “That’s the hope,” Garrett said. — Reporter Christine Metz can be reached at 832-6352.f

KBA committee OKs investments By Andy Hyland

The Kansas Bioscience Authority’s investment committee approved investments for two Kansas bioscience companies’ efforts on Monday. Lawrence-based Echogen also earned a $199,500 proofof-concept grant from the investment committee, but because it was passed unanimously, approval of the grant does not need to go before the full KBA board. That grant will be used to

test out a more eff icient method for identifying and separating proteins. The idea uses knowledge gained in the lab of Kansas University professor Jennifer Laurence. The funds approved included $123,678 in partial matching grants for Aptakon, based in Kansas City, Kan. That measure must be approved by the KBA’s full board of directors at its meeting next week. Aptakon will use the funds to develop lab reagents to test for biomarkers. The company had already

‘These are all people who have led by experience’


Deeper cuts rejected in House


Army Corps decides to blow up levee The Army Corps of Engineers began blowing up a nearly two-mile-wide hole in an earthen levee late Monday, unleashing a muddy torrent into empty farm fields in a desperate bid to save an Illinois town from rising floodwaters. Engineers announced their intention to carry out the blast after spending hours pumping liquid explosives into the Birds Point levee near tiny Cairo, Ill. The first explosion happened not long after nightfall. Five more inches of rain fell overnight, further straining the floodwall protecting tiny Cairo, Ill. And still more was in the forecast. The seemingly endless rain has overwhelmed rivers and strained levees, including one protecting Cairo, at the confluence of the Ohio and Mississippi rivers. Flooding concerns also were widespread Monday in western Tennessee, where tributaries were backed up due to heavy rains and the bulging Mississippi River. Streets in suburban Memphis were blocked, and some 175 people filled a church gymnasium to brace for potential record flooding. 2 | WASHINGTON, D.C.

2 Korean War soldiers honored When President Barack Obama expressed his pride in America’s men and women in uniform, he was speaking about those who hours earlier had killed al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden and those who six decades earlier had given their lives in the Korean War. During a somber ceremony Monday in the White House East Room, Obama bestowed the Medal of Honor posthumously on two Army privates — Anthony T. Kaho’ohanohano of Pukalani, Hawaii, and Henry Svehla of Belleville, N.J. “Today we remember them with the highest military decoration that our nation can bestow,” Obama said, describing the pair as “hometown kids who stood tall in America’s uniform.” 2 | WASHINGTON, D.C.

Supreme Court to hear passport dispute The Supreme Court agreed Monday to hear an appeal from an American born in Jerusalem over whether he can have Israel listed as his birthplace on his passport even though U.S. policy does not recognize the once-divided city as belonging to Israel. The court is stepping into a case that mixes the thorny politics of the Middle East and a fight between Congress and the president over primacy in foreign policy. The justices will review an appeals court ruling against Jerusalem-born Menachem Zivotofsky and his parents, U.S.-born Jews who moved to Israel in 2000. They filed a lawsuit after State Department officials refused to list Israel as Menachem’s birthplace. The boy was born in a Jerusalem hospital in October 2002, shortly after Congress directed, in a federal law, that Americans born in Jerusalem may have Israel listed as their place of birth. But the Bush administration said Congress may not tell the president what to do regarding this aspect of foreign relations. The Obama administration agrees with its predecessor. 3 | LIBYA

Mourners demand revenge after strike Libyans shouting for revenge buried Moammar Gadhafi’s second-youngest son to the thundering sound of anti-aircraft fire Monday, as South Africa warned that the NATO bombing that killed him would only bring more violence. Libya’s leader did not attend the tumultuous funeral of 29-year-old Seif al-Arab, but older brothers Seif al-Islam and Mohammed paid their respects, thronged by a crowd of several thousand. Jostling to get closer to the coffin, draped with a green Libyan flag, mourners flashed victory signs and chanted “Revenge, revenge for you, Libya.” Three of Gadhafi’s grandchildren, an infant and two toddlers, also died in Saturday’s attack, which NATO says targeted one of the regime’s command and control centers. Gadhafi and his wife were in the compound at the time, but escaped unharmed, Libyan officials said, accusing the alliance of trying to assassinate the Libyan leader.

T O P E K A — Two attempts by several House Republicans on Monday to make deeper cuts to the state budget were rejected by a group of Democrats and other Republicans. “The governor has continued to say, ‘make cuts, make cuts,’ and that is what I’m attempting to do,” said Rep. Owen Donohoe, RShawnee. The first plan offered by Donohoe and Reps. Anthony Brown, R-Eudora, and Kasha Kelley, RArkansas City, LEGISLATURE would have cut further base state aid to schools. Base state aid is $4,012 per pupil. But an earlier position approved by the House would drop that to $3,762 per pupil. Initially, the Donohoe-BrownKelley amendment would have cut that to $3,602 per pupil. But the three legislators softened the proposal before the Appropriations Committee on Monday by reducing base state aid to schools by $98 per pupil to $3,664. Rep. Barbara Ballard, DLawrence, however, said that combined with earlier school cuts approved by the House, that was just too large a chunk to take from schools. “That is just too heavy a cut for me,” Ballard said. Several committee members also complained that the amendment was made too late in the session and without knowing

Police chief promotes 4 department members By George Diepenbrock

Lawrence Police Chief Tarik Khatib on Monday made the first major promotions of his three-month tenure as he elevated two captains and two sergeants to patrol shift posts. Khatib on Monday morning presented credentials to two new captains, Jim Martin and Bill Cory, and two sergeants, Trent McKinley and Robert Murry, in front of dozens of officers, department employees and others. “We talk a lot about leadership, and these are all people who have led by experience,” Khatib said. “They’re hard workers. They’re involved in the community. We have expectations that that continues.” Martin, who most recently served as an investigations sergeant supervising detectives, will lead the department’s evening patrol shift that runs from 3 p.m. to 11 p.m., and McKinley, who has worked as a neighborhood resources offi-

cer since 2007, will be one of the three supervising sergeants who report to Martin. “There needs to be a really good base for leadership because patrol is the heartbeat of the police department,” Martin said. McKinley said he hoped to be able to continue to foster connections he made with neighborhood associations and other groups to help work on neighborhood issues in his new position. Among the new chief’s major goals is community involvement. “It will be figuring out how to better mesh those types of goals with the functions of a patrol shift,” he said. Cory will move from his assignment as sergeant in charge of the department’s training unit to leading the night patrol shift from 11 p.m. to 7 a.m. with Murry, an 11-year officer, becoming a supervising sergeant under Cory’s command. “I’ve got an open mind to a lot of different things — offi-

cers’ ideas and sergeants’ ideas — and I plan to openly accept feedback,” Cory said. Murry said the overnight shift includes challenges because officers deal with lots of calls at certain times, such as bar closing times. The two new captains replace Khatib, who was promoted from captain in February to permanently replace longtime chief Ron Olin who retired from the department, and Capt. Ray Urbanek, who plans to retire in June, Khatib said. Capt. Dan Ward, who has been working as a patrol captain, will eventually replace Urbanek in the information technology division. Khatib said Lawrence City Manager David Corliss has allowed the department to overlap the promotions before Urbanek’s retirement to create a smoother transition for the new captains. — Reporter George Diepenbrock can be reached at 832-7144.

City poised to approve lighted-path plan By Chad Lawhorn

A plan to improve pedestrian safety by building a lighted sidewalk between downtown and Kansas University is set to receive a major boost. City commissioners at their meeting today are expected to approve a recommendation to award the project $137,010 in funding from the city’s allocation of the Community Development Block Grant program. “We think this will create a safety-in-numbers type of envi-

ronment,” said Mark Thiel, the city’s assistant director of public works. “If we can make this the main route for pedestrians between downtown and campus, we think that will improve safety.” The path will start in South Park at the corner of Massachusetts and North Park streets. It will cut diagonally across the park until it connects with 12th Street. It then will travel along the north side of 12th Street until it reaches the edge of campus at Louisiana Street. The project has been on the

city’s drawing board for several years, but it has struggled to win funding. Kansas University has agreed to provide $120,000 and the city has committed $50,000 in funding from other sources. Thiel said the nearly $140,000 in CDBG funding will be enough to complete the project. Work to begin installing lighting in South Park and to repair the existing sidewalk that runs along 12th Street should begin soon. Thiel expects to have lighting installed along the entire path by the time KU classes begin next fall.

Path features Thiel said he believes the city has worked out a good compromise with neighbors, who previously had expressed concerns about adding lights to the neighborhood. The new lights will be high-efficiency LED-lights, similar to those being installed along Massachusetts Street. In addition, the lights will be on a low illumination setting until a sensor picks up motion along the sidewalk. Then the lights temporarily will increase to Please see PATH, page 5A

IN THIS IMAGE RELEASED BY THE WHITE HOUSE and digitally altered by the source to diffuse the paper in front of Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden, along with with members of the national security team, receive an update on the mission against Osama bin Laden in the Situation Room of the White House on Sunday in Washington. Obama reaped accolades from world leaders he’d kept in the dark about the operation as well as plaudits from political opponents at home. Republican and Democratic congressional leaders alike gave him a standing ovation at an evening meeting that was planned before the assault but became a celebration of its success. “Last night’s news unified our country” much as the terrorist attacks of 2001 did, Republican House Speaker John Boehner said earlier in the day. Obama later

appealed for that unity to take root as the U.S. presses the fight against a terrorist network that is still lethal — and vowing vengeance. The SEALs dropped down ropes from helicopters at the compound, killed bin Laden aides and made their way to the main building where U.S. officials say the terror leader was slain in a gunfight. Within 40 minutes the Americans were gone, taking bin Laden’s body to the USS Carl Vinson where he was slipped into the sea. “For my family and I, it’s good, it’s desirable, it’s right,”

SEALs and Delta both, commanded by then-JSOC chief Gen. Stanley McChrystal, learned to work much like FBI agents, first attacking a target, killing or capturing the suspects, and then gathering evidence at the scene. McChrystal described it as building a network to chase a network, where the special operations forces work with intelligence analysts back at a joint base. The raiders, he said, could collect valuable “pocket litter” from the scene, like documents or computers, to exploit to hunt the next target. The battlegrounds of Iraq and Afghanistan had been informally divided, with the SEALs running Afghanistan and the U.S. Army’s Delta Force conducting the bulk of the operations in Iraq, though there was overlap of each organization. There is considerable professional rivalry between them. Delta Force units caught Saddam Hussein late in 2003, and had killed his sons Uday and Qusay in a shootout in Mosul earlier that year. The race to be the unit that captured bin Laden had been on ever since. “Officially, Team Six doesn’t exist,” says former Navy SEAL Craig Sawyer, 47, who advises Hollywood and acts in movies about the military. After undergoing a sixmonth process in which commanders scrutinized his every move, Sawyer says he was selected in the 1990s to join the team. “It was like being recruited to an all-star team,” he said, with members often gone 300 days a year, only lasting about three years on the team before burning out. “They train around the clock,” he said. ”They know that failure will not be an

option. Either they succeed or they don’t come home.” Other special operations units joke that “SEAL” stands for “Sleep, eat, lift,” though the term actually stands for Sea, Air, Land. “The SEALs will be the first to remind everyone that the ‘L’ in SEAL stands for land,“ says retired Army Gen. Doug Brown, former commander of U.S. Special Operations Command in Tampa, Fla. ”They have skills on the land equal to their skills at sea.“ Brown, who led the command from 2003-2007, said the operation against bin Laden is the most significant mission conducted by U.S. commando forces since t h e o rga n i zat i o n wa s formed in 1987 in the wake of the failed attempt in 1980 to re s c u e t h e A m e r i c a n hostages in Iran. “I can’t think of a mission as nationally important,” Brown said. The last time the public was made aware of a SEAL raid on Pakistani soil was 2008, when the raiders flew only a mile over the border to the town of Angurada, according to Pakistani officials, speaking on condition of anonymity to discuss sensitive strategic matters. The high-value targets the Americans had been told were there had fled, and those left behind in the compound fought back, resulting in a number of civilian casualties, U.S. and Pakistani officials say, speaking on condition of anonymity to discuss a classified operation. While the U.S. usually does not comment on covert actions, especially ones that go wrong, the 2008 incident was caught on cellphone video, so they confirmed it and apologized publicly, U.S. officials said.

L AWRENCE J OURNAL -WORLD said Mike Low of Batesville, Ark., whose daughter Sara was a flight attendant aboard the hijacked plane that was flown into the World Trade Center North Tower. “It certainly brings an ending to a major quest for all of us.” Halfway around the world, a prominent al-Qaida commentator vowed revenge for bin Laden’s death. “Woe to his enemies. By God, we will avenge the killing of the Sheik of Islam,” he wrote under his online name Assad al-Jihad2. “Those who wish that jihad has ended or weakened, I tell them: Let us wait a little bit.” U.S. officials conceded the risk of renewed attack. The terrorists “almost certainly will attempt to avenge” bin Laden’s death, CIA Director Leon Panetta wrote in a memo that congratulated the agency for its role in the operation. “Bin Laden is dead. Al-Qaida is not.” Within a few hours, the Department of Homeland Security warned that bin Laden’s death was likely to provide motivation for attacks from “homegrown violent extremists” seeking revenge.” FBI spokesman Paul Bresson said, “While there are no specific, bin Laden-related threats at this time, every logical and prudent step is being taken to mitigate any developing threats.” There were questions, as well, about Pakistan’s role in bin Laden’s years in hiding. Both Obama and Secre-

tary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton said cooperation from the Pakistani government had helped lead U.S. forces to the compound where he died. But John Brennan, White House counter-terrorism adviser, told reporters it was inconceivable that the terrorist fugitive didn’t have some support in Pakistan, where his hideout had been custom built six years ago in a city with a heavy military presence. “I am not going to speculate about what type of support he might have had on an official basis,” he added. Others were not as reticent. Sen. Carl Levin, D-Mich., chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee, said the Pakistani Army and intelligence agency “have a lot of questions to answer, given the location, the length of time and the apparent fact that this was actually — this facility was actually built for bin Laden, and its closeness to the central location of the Pakistani army.” By their condemnations, bin Laden’s supporters confirmed his death in what U.S. officials said was an operation years in the making. Even so, officials were weighing the release of at least one photo taken of bin Laden’s body as part of what Brennan called an effort to make sure “nobody has any basis to try and deny” the death.

“the quiet professionals.” SEAL Team Six raided targets outside war zones like Yemen and Somalia in the past three years, though the unit operates primarily in Afghanistan. The Associated Press will not publish the names of the commanding officers, to protect them and their families from possible retaliation by militants for the bin Laden operation. The unit is overseen by the Joint Special Operations Command, which oversees the U.S. Army’s Delta Force and other special units. JSOC’s combined forces have been responsible for a quadrupling of counterterrorism raids that have targeted militants in record numbers over the past year in Afghanistan. Some 4, 500 elite special operations forces and support units have been part of the surge of U.S. forces there. CIA Director Leon Panetta was in charge of the military team during the covert operation, a U.S. official said. While the president can empower the SEALs and other counterterrorism units to carry out covert actions without CIA oversight, President Barack Obama’s team put the intelligence agency in charge, with other elements of the national security apparatus answering to them for this mission. SEAL Team Six actually works so often with the intelligence agency that it’s sometimes called the CIA’s Pretorian Guard — a partnership that started in Iraq, as an outgrowth of the fusion of special operations forces and intelligence in the hunt for militants there.

LAW ENFORCEMENT REPORT • A truck owned by R.D. Johnson Excavating Co. delivering rock to a home construction site Monday afternoon caught fire south of Lawrence after its bucket was raised into a 7,200volt power line south of Lawrence. Sgt. Steve Lewis, a Douglas County Sheriff’s spokesman, said the truck’s driver, Isaac Taylor, 62, of Baldwin City, was able to get out of the 2006 Mack dump truck and was not injured. It occurred in the 900 block of East 1264 Road near U.S. Highway 59 and County Road 458. Wakarusa Township firefighters responded, and the truck was a total loss, Lewis said.

CONDITION UPDATE • Brian Oyer, a 44-year-old Olathe man who was injured Friday evening in a motorcycle accident on U.S. Highway 56 east of Baldwin City, was treated and released from Overland Park Regional Hospital Saturday, a hospital spokeswoman said Monday.

INJURY ACCIDENT • A 46-year-old Ottawa man

was taken to Lawrence Memorial Hospital Monday afternoon by a private vehicle after his pickup truck struck a bridge railing in Franklin County. According to the Kansas Highway Patrol, the accident occurred at 1:43 p.m. in the 4200 block of Shawnee Road about six miles south of Baldwin City. Lawrence R. Trusler was injured after his 1998 Ford Ranger truck drifted off the right side of the road and struck the railing. He was treated and released from the hospital.

Law enforcement officials said Monday that they are seeing no specific bin Ladenrelated threats at this point, but they issued a bulletin warning that homegrown extremists could use this as an excuse to launch an attack. Offsetting that, experts said, are the reverberations of the successful U.S. operation. Extremists in the midst of attack plans, or looking to make a revenge strike, “are looking over their shoulders,” said Levitt. “They’re assuming everything is penetrated, they’re afraid of talking on the phone, they’re afraid of using their couriers,” he added. “It really shakes the tree in a very violent way.” In the near term, Venzke and other experts say the attacks would likely be small and planned quickly by would-be jihadists. But history shows such ad hoc, individual attempts can as easily be deadly as they can be duds. At Fort Hood, Texas, a shooter reportedly inspired by al-Qaida-linked extremists gunned down 13 and wounded 32 more in November 2009. And another man seeking to avenge the deaths of Muslims by U.S. forces shot and killed a soldier at a Little Rock, Ark., recruiting center in June 2009.

— Released by the Homeland Security Department and FBI Then there have been the near-misses: the attempted Times Square bombing a year ago, the plot to bomb New York subways and the failed effort to detonate mail bombs on cargo planes last October. The Homeland Security Department and FBI confirmed the retaliatory threat Sunday, issuing a bulletin to law enforcement around the country. The warning said bin Laden’s death could inspire extremists to speed up their plans for attacks, and the threats could come from unidentified al-Qaida operatives in the country that could move forward with their own plots. “Bin Laden’s death may provide justification for radicalized individuals in the United States to rapidly mobilize for attacks here,” the document said. Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano said the government does not plan to raise the terror alert level in the U.S. For al-Qaida, the future is at best uncertain. Loyalists in Afghanistan, under increasing pressure from the U.S. and coalition forces, may decide now is the time to sever ties with the terror group, said Richard Barrett, the head of a U.N. group that monitors the threat posed by al-Qaida and the Taliban. Bin Laden’s heir apparent, Ayman al-Zawahri, is deeply unpopular, and any struggle to replace the terror leader could divide and further weaken the group. Al-Qaida and its core leaders have been under great pressure in Pakistan in recent years from the escalating barrage of U.S. drone attacks. And the Pakistani military has pushed into many of the group’s strongholds along the border, making communications, fundraising and attack planning far more difficult.

Key House and Senate members already are negotiating a budget plan, and the session is expected to end this week or next. “I oppose making cuts without the understanding of how they will impact programs,” said Rep.

Notable ● For the first time in nearly seven years, Detroit’s car companies are all making money. Chrysler, the last of the three to return to profitability, said Monday it earned $116 million in the first quarter on revenue of $13.1 billion. The company, which emerged from bankruptcy protection a little less than two years ago, hadn’t reported net income since 2006. General Motors Co., which also went into bankruptcy in 2009 and took billions in government aid, has reported four profitable quarters and held an initial public offering in November to help repay its loans. Ford Motor Co., which didn’t take bailout money but nearly filed for bankruptcy five years ago, recorded its eighth consecutive quarterly profit last week. Ford’s 2010 profit of $6.6 billion was the highest in a decade. It’s the payoff for cutting staff, plants, car brands and wages during the recession and bankruptcy. At the same time, car sales are rising as the economy improves.

Bin Laden’s death won’t reverse post-9/11 effects By Michael Liedtke Associated Press Writer

Security screening at airports will still be a hassle and raise the cost of travel. Laws that turned banks into financial cops will stay in place. And most companies will still spend more to ship goods and secure their computer systems. Osama bin Laden’s death won’t reverse the transformation of business that followed the Sept. 11 attacks. The attacks fueled higher corporate spending on security and intelligence — costs that have been passed on to consumers. Those surging gas prices that motorists are cursing are higher, in part, because the bin Laden-driven attacks raised fears that terrorists might disrupt the flow of Middle East oil. No matter what happens next, bin Laden’s legacy has meant costs and fees that business and consumers had never faced before and that aren’t about to go away. Stocks began climbing Monday morning after news of bin Laden’s death. Strong earnings reports from Humana Inc. and other companies also pushed them higher. But by lunchtime, the gains were gone. The major indexes wavered the rest of the day and closed slightly lower. Here’s a look at how different industries and sectors were reshaped by the Sept. 11 attacks:

Airlines The terrorist attacks turned the act of flying into a test of patience. Air travel changed from a routine exercise into a process of seemingly everchanging rules and procedures and time-hogging scrutiny. It also caused deep financial

hardships for an industry that had long struggled to maintain profits. Besides having to charge a $2.50-per-flight fee to help bankroll the Transportation Security Administration, most airlines now charge to check baggage, too. That adds $100 to $200 to the cost of flying for many travelers.

Energy Electricity and other energy costs are likely higher than they would be had the Sept. 11 attacks not occurred. Power plants and energy transmission networks are deemed to be potential terrorist targets. So the security costs related to them have risen, with costs passed along to customers. After 9/11, U.S. oil refineries were subjected to increased and costly security measures that remain in place, says Bill Day, spokesman for Valero Energy, the nation’s largest independent refiner. Michael Lynch, President of Strategic and Economic Research, Inc., says oil has been more expensive over the past decade because traders have worried that al-Qaida could disrupt supplies by attacking refineries, pipelines or ports in the Middle East. Technology The attacks spurred more demands for more sophisticated computers and software. The fear of another destructive attack that might target information technology, or IT, forced companies to hustle to upgrade their security software. This included heavyduty encryption and datarecovery protections. The urgency has been especially felt in banking and government and operators of bridges, tunnels and power plants.

Plans call for the signals — similar to what you see downtown near the outdoor aquatic center on Kentucky Street — at 12th and Tennessee and 12th and Kentucky streets. Both city and university leaders have been pushing for the lighted pathway project as concerns of safety in the area have grown. The Oread neighborhood area has one of the higher rates of sexual assaults in the community, according to information compiled by the city. In addition to the pathway project, city commissioners will be asked to approve other CDBG funding recommendations. They include: ● $83,063 to the city’s Public Works Department to partially fund construction of a sidewalk along the east side of Iowa Street from Harvard Road to the Sixth and Iowa intersection. ● $35,800 to Community Living Opportunities to do exterior painting of seven group homes owned by the organization. ● $33,000 to Independence Inc. to fund its accessible

Bin Laden’s death causes joy, reflection Kelly Griffiths, ex-wife of Spc. Lucas Frantz Tonganoxie resident Kelly Griffiths learned of Osama bin Laden’s death via radio Monday during her morning commute to work. She wasn’t sure it was real, noting it seemed surreal. Hours earlier, Americans across the country started rejoicing when news broke late Sunday of bin Laden’s death. For her, it wasn’t as much celebration as reflection. Griffiths’ husband, Spc. Lucas Frantz, died Oct. 27, 2005 — his 22nd birthday — while serving in Iraq supporting Operation Iraqi Freedom. “I had a long time to think about it during the day,” Griffiths said. On her way home from work in Lawrence on Monday afternoon, Griffiths stopped at Frantz’s grave at a Tonganoxie cemetery. “He’s definitely on my mind,” Griffiths said about Frantz. “This one person (bin Laden) has caused so much pain.” Frantz, a Tonganoxie High School graduate, signed up for the military a week after his 17th birthday, Griffiths said. “I remember 9/11,” Griffiths said. “I was in college at the time. We were dating when that happened. I remember thinking what was to come. I was very scared.” Nearly a decade later, Griffiths remembers her late husband’s sacrifices. “I’m proud of Lucas and definitely thinking about him today,” she said. Now 28 and remarried, Griffiths thinks about what is next for the United States and whether there will be a chain reaction. “What is going to be happening because of this?” she said. “Which is why I’m a little nervous of the possibilities.” — Shawn Linenberger

Al Stuber, former Navy pilot and father of soldier For Lawrence pilot Al Stuber, a former Navy pilot with a son in the U.S. Army who has served four combat tours overseas, Sunday’s news that Osama bin Laden had been killed was welcome. “I was just relieved that they finally caught this bad guy,” Stuber said. “And I was extremely proud that the Seals did it.” Stuber uses his plane for skywriting in town occasionally — he wrote “KU” in the sky during last weekend’s spring football game, and he has in the past written “9/11” in the sky to “remind the world that we didn’t forget.” He said he believed that bin Laden’s capture probably wasn’t as big of a deal today as it would have been years ago, but he still welcomed the news. His son served three tours of duty in Iraq and another in Bosnia as an enlisted man, and then later as an officer, Stuber said. Stuber said he had been fielding calls from several old military friends throughout the day Monday. “It’s great news,” he said. “We’ll get the rest of them next.” — Andy Hyland

Adrian Lewis, KU professor of military history Adrian Lewis, a Kansas University military history professor, learned of Osama bin Laden’s death late Sunday night. “We’ve been arguing about insignificant stuff, in my view,” he said about things such as Donald Trump’s call to see President Barack Obama’s birth certificate. “Don’t underestimate the significance of Osama bin Laden.” “He’s touched the lives of virtually every American,” he said. “I don’t think Osama bin Laden touched the core of who we are as Americans,” Lewis said. “But he did a lot of damage.” Lewis is the author of a book on military history from World War II to Operation Iraqi Freedom and also oversees KU’s Wounded Warrior program, which allows wounded soldiers in the Army to enroll in KU courses of study. The Army pays for their tuition, and in return the soldiers commit to a three-year position in the Army for every 12 months of education paid for. Lewis said it “warms my heart” to see Americans coming together and celebrating on television. Though bin Laden’s death will impede al-Qaida, he said, the fight is not over. “There are going to be some very angry people,” Lewis said. “There will be extremists out there who want to get us. I would bet you that every American embassy in every foreign country is sending out warnings to Americans to be very cautious.” — Andy Hyland

CANDY WASSER, OTTAWA, HOLDS A PICTURE OF HER OLDEST SON, CHRIS, in this file photo from 2008. On April 8, 2004, during his second deployment to Iraq, Lance Cpl. Christopher Wasser was killed by a roadside bomb. He was 21. Chris’ father, Scott Wasser, said he is satisfied with the death of Osama bin Laden because it means the military has reached a goal it set out to accomplish.

From left are Frantz’s mother, Lorrie Vandruff, his stepfather, Tim Vandruff, and Lucas’ then wife, Kelly Frantz, now Kelly Griffiths. Spc. Lucas Frantz died Oct. 27, 2005, while serving in Iraq supporting Operation Iraqi Freedom, and Griffiths’ reaction to Osama bin Laden’s death wasn’t so much celebration as reflection.

Doug Anrig, area captain of Patriot Guard Riders Doug Anrig is familiar with the risks, knows the stakes and is committed to the cause. So when Anrig, a semi-retired area captain for the Patriot Guard Riders, learned about the success of a team of Navy Seals in taking out Osama bin Laden, he felt his chest rise with pride. Then exhale in relief. “It’s good that the mission was carried out in the way that it was and that no troops were harmed,” said Anrig, who’s lost count of the number of times he’s ridden his motorcycle in support of soldiers and sailors returning home from the Middle East. “I give credit to the president for laying out the orders and carrying out the mission. And let’s not forget the big picture being carried out by our men and women in uniform.” Anrig can’t forget his own time in the service: 1976 to 1980, as a boilerman in the Navy, his “Steamer” nickname sticking to this day. Back then, aboard the guided missile cruiser USS William H. Standley in the Indian Ocean, he had been called to general quarters in support of another rescue mission: a failed attempt to free American hostages in Iran, one that ended with helicopters crashing in the desert. “That’s part of why this mission means so much to me,” he said. Anrig, a former Lawrence resident who now lives in the Kansas City area, works for the federal government and still lends his support to the Patriot Guard, lining up motorcycles to herald the return of military men and women and to protect the families of those attending funerals of those who have fallen. “Hopefully things will settle down now,” said Anrig, whose son, Christopher, is a mechanic in the Army. “Hopefully we can start bringing our troops home as soon as possible.” — Mark Fagan

Jane Tedder, witness to 9/11 attacks Jane Tedder said she didn’t really need to hear about Osama bin Laden’s death to be reminded of the 9/11 attacks. The Lawrence resident still remembers being in lower Manhattan, where she was staying in the Marriott World Trade Center hotel for an economic conference when the planes hit the twin towers. She was outside on the street and watched the second plane hit the tower, she recalled. She said she is still reminded of the tragedy almost daily. All it takes is that cigarette patch commercial on TV now, the one where people are stepping down from a building onto various platforms. It reminds her of an image that hasn’t left her in nearly 10 years: the people jumping out of the burning buildings. The 68-year-old Tedder said she found out about bin Laden’s death Sunday night — figuring you don’t turn off the TV once you hear the president will be giving a rare latenight Sunday address. She remembered two emotions when she first heard: relief and trepidation. Relief because bin Laden was dead; and trepidation because she feared retaliatory attacks. But, for her, there was no rejoicing, she said. “I firmly believe that the intentional killing of any human being is not cause for rejoicing,” she said. — Andy Hyland

Lea Orth, NYC resident Lea Orth is relieved and happy that Osama bin Laden is dead. “It feels like a holiday,” she said during a telephone interview Monday from her home in New York City. “I could hardly go to sleep last

night I was so excited — really excited.” Orth, a Kansas native and Kansas University graduate, said President Barack Obama’s announcement Sunday night reminded her of a scene from “The Wizard of Oz” — the one where the Wicked Witch of the West is pronounced dead and everyone celebrates. Orth, who has children living in Lawrence, has lived in New York City since 1976. During the 9/11 attacks, she was getting ready for an 11 a.m. business appointment inside one of the towers. She recalls first hearing about the news on her classical radio station and then later seeing hordes of people — covered in gray debris — walking past her home to get out of town. In the days after 9/11, the city was eerily quiet. “I think we were in shock for a long time,” she said. Orth knows people who escaped the towers and she knows people who lost loved ones, including a very close friend. Her friend had a ritual of going out on her terrace and looking at the tower where her granddaughter worked. She was talking to her granddaughter on the phone as the plane hit. “She never really recovered from that, and her funeral was just a couple of years ago,” Orth said. “I was thinking about her today and all of the others. That’s why I am so very happy that it (bin Laden’s death) happened.” — Karrey Britt

Lenise Eddings, artist Lenise Eddings remembers what 9/11 made her do: It made her reevaluate her priorities and really consider if what she was doing matched her dreams. It didn’t. Eddings, then a Lawrence resident, painted a picture to deal with her emotions surrounding the 9/11 terrorist attacks, complete with Osama bin Laden’s face. That painting set her dreams in motion. “Those types of life-altering events have a great deal of significance, and everyone in our country reassessed what was valuable and what was a priority,” she said. “Obviously, expressing myself through my painting as I watched everything unfold, that became the catalyst.” Eddings, 58, began painting regularly, and has since developed a children’s book, “I Seek and Find.” She sells prints of her 9/11 painting, and says it’s in a place of honor in her household in Wellsville. But when she turned on her computer Monday morning and saw the news of Osama bin Laden’s death, it was a mixture of joy and sadness she found herself feeling. “There’s still a great sadness because it brings back all those memories,” Eddings said. “I just don’t think that it’s going to be forgotten in our country.” — Brenna Hawley

Mark Johnson, special operations trainer Eudora resident Mark Johnson celebrated Monday, hours after learning U.S. special operations forces in Pakistan killed Osama bin Laden, the leader of the al-Qaida terrorist organization who evaded American forces since the 9/11 attacks. “This has been one of our main goals for 10 years to get this guy,” said Johnson, a retired Army lieutenant colonel and former Green Beret. “We finally succeeded.” Johnson, who earned a Bronze Star during the first Gulf War and as a consultant trained special operations and conventional military officers in the Middle East in 2006, praised the execution of the raid and said it was a crippling blow for al-Qaida because it lost a “mentor and godfather.” He said members of the terrorist group likely don’t have the capabili-

ty now to conduct a large-scale, coordinated attack. Johnson also said that as more details come out about Sunday’s operation, he could learn one day that he helped train commanders who participated in it as he taught at Fort Leavenworth in the mid1990s and early 2000s. “We all,” he said, “have our chests stuck out a little higher today.” — George Diepenbrock

Felix Zacharias, who served in Iraq When Felix Zacharias received word of Osama bin Laden’s death, he was sitting on his back patio smoking a cigar and listening to the Kenny Chesney song “Everybody Wants to Go to Heaven.” Smoking cigars at night was a habit Zacharias picked up while serving in Iraq. The Kansas University graduate student in political science and former president of the KU Collegiate Veterans Association said Sunday’s news sent him into a texting frenzy. It also had him thinking back to his reaction on Sept. 11. Then, he was a Marine stationed in Hawaii. Just as he did Sunday night, Zacharias called his father on 9/11 to talk about the news. “He said, ‘What are we going to do?’ And I told him I had no idea. But I was pretty sure we were going to go to war,” Zacharias said. Zacharias spent seven months in Iraq in 2006 and 2007. During that time, bin Laden didn’t occupy his thoughts much. “In reality, nothing has changed in my life,” Zacharias said. “It is good to know he is gone, but I’d happily trade it back for the 22 Marines (who died) in my battalion.” — Christine Metz

Reaction at the VFW A nice, quiet feeling is how local VFW post commander Jerry Karr described the mood Monday. Karr, a Vietnam veteran and retired firefighter, was glad to see Osama bin Laden brought to justice. “If it weren’t for this man, they wouldn’t have gone through the trauma they’ve gone through; there wouldn’t be people who are now living with artificial prosthetic arms and legs, been separated from all their children while they served over there. Families lost sons and daughters,” Karr said. “I don’t find a heady joy in it. But I think it’s nice to have some closure.” He was amazed by the celebrations that broke out across the country, proud of the military and happy that the president approved the mission. “I don’t think terrorism is finished by a long shot. But at least we did strike a blow today,” he said. “And we let them know if you attack the United States, it might take us nine years, but we are coming.” Sunday night was a sleepless one for Andrew Foster, who was up late on Facebook chatting with other young veterans and friends he served with in the Navy. Now a Kansas University senior studying political science, Foster served in the Navy for six years and was deployed to the Middle East and Southeast Asia. On Sept. 11, he was stationed right outside of D.C. “It was just a weird sense of awe almost,” Foster said about the news of bin Laden’s death. He hopes it will mark a turning point for the war on terror and “a step in the right direction to get everyone home.” But Billie Carey, who served two tours in Iraq with the Army Reserves, warned that with bin Laden’s death America shouldn’t become complacent. “The war is not over. I hope peo-

ple realize we have a long ways to go,” she said. — Christine Metz

Candy and Scott Wasser, parents of fallen soldier For Candy and Scott Wasser of Ottawa, the death of Osama bin Laden marks another significant milestone. Their son, Christopher, joined the Marines shortly after his 18th birthday in 2001. His first full day of boot camp was on 9/11. On April 8, 2004, during his second deployment to Iraq, Lance Cpl. Christopher Wasser was killed by a roadside bomb. He was 21. Scott Wasser said he is satisfied with bin Laden’s death because it means the military has reached a goal it set out to accomplish. “That chapter now is closed, and we have many more chapters ahead of us, and we don’t know how that will unfold,” he said. He added that he doesn’t even view the United States at war anymore. “I see it as a giant police action. The different factions of the Middle East have been fighting for thousands of years. The best you can do is police things and provide a little stability in hopes that things get better on down the road,” he said. — Scott Rothschild

Republicans, Democrats: ‘Justice was served’ Kansas Republican Party Chairwoman Amanda Adkins and Kansas Democratic Party Chairwoman Joan Wagnon on Monday issued a joint statement, saying that “justice was served” in the death of Osama bin Laden, the mastermind of the 9/11 attack on the U.S. The joint statement said: “Almost 10 years ago our nation stood together in shock at a tragedy that claimed almost 3,000 lives. Yesterday, justice was served. Today we are all Americans. “Our heartfelt thanks goes to the men and women in uniform who’ve given their lives in pursuit of this day, and the soldiers and intelligence officers who made it possible.” Earlier Monday, Kansas Senate Chaplain Fred Hollomon held a moment of silent prayer and said he was grateful that no U.S. forces were killed in the raid on bin Laden. — Scott Rothschild

Brownback thanks troops Gov. Sam Brownback on Monday said Osama bin Laden’s death was “the result of the tireless dedication of our brave men and women in uniform, and I want to thank and congratulate them on a job well done.” — Scott Rothschild

Bassam Helwani, of the Islamic Center of Lawrence Bassam Helwani, assistant director of the Islamic Center of Lawrence, said Monday that he was glad President Barack Obama, in his address to the nation, made clear the distinction between what Osama bin Laden believed and the teachings of Islam. “Islam is a religion of peace and tolerance. We have always stood by our position that the actions of Osama bin Laden do not represent Islam or Muslims in any way,” he said. He said the Islamic Center of Lawrence has always condemned terrorism and violence. “We call for co-existence and celebrating our commonality. We hope this will be an opportunity for Muslims and all Americans to renew their commitment to our humanity,” he said. — Scott Rothschild

Psychologists: No right way to react to bin Laden’s death Local

terrorism experts leery of future

By Karrey Britt

There’s no right or wrong way to react to a big news event, such as Osama bin Laden’s death. To each his own. Dr. Marciana Vequist, a psychologist at Bert Nash Community Mental Health Center, said such events can evoke a range of emotions. Some people may be exuberant because they perceive his death as making the world a safer place, and they may feel a sense of closure. Others may feel emptiness because it didn’t bring back the loved ones they lost. And others may not feel anything at all because they think the death of one person doesn’t change the everyday threats we live under. “I don’t think I could even generalize expectations,” Vequist said. “Every reaction is different, and everyone is going to respond differently.” Vequist said it’s similar to the holidays. For some people, the holidays provide hope so they hang in there and feel better. For others, it creates even more hopelessness. If people are struggling with mood issues and a national event happens, Vequist said it could push them further into not functioning well. If someone is showing signs of hopelessness, she said, they need help. That means they aren’t doing the things —

A CROWD GATHERED IN NEW YORK'S TIMES SQUARE reacts in celebration to the news of Osama bin Laden’s death early Monday morning. Some Americans rejoiced in the news of bin Laden’s death while others marked the event on a somber note. Dr. Marciana Vequist, a psychologist at Bert Nash Community Mental Health Center, said such events can evoke a range of emotions. sleeping, going to work, eating — they typically do. Also, parents and other adults need to be mindful of their behavior and the messages they may be unintentionally sending to children. Janice Storey, program director for Children and Family Services at Bert Nash, said, “I am sure that kids are

talking about it and seeing it on TV, and for some kids it’s not going to mean anything more than the news. It’s going to have more to do with the adults around them and how they handle it.” She advises parents to have a conversation with their children about bin Laden’s death. Some questions to ask:

● What have you heard about Osama bin Laden? ● Do you have any questions? ● How do you feel about what you’ve heard? Storey said if there’s a change in a child’s behavior such as being more clingy, more anxious or not sleeping, then he or she may need help

through services offered at school, church or Bert Nash. “They learn about history in a lot of different ways, and I think the emotional impact is the piece that really has to be gauged,” she said. — Health reporter Karrey Britt can be reached at 832-7190. Read her health blog at

Mission provides teachable moment for civics class By Mark Fagan

Back on that terrible day in September 2001, things sure were different for the students in Matt Frost’s civics class: The twin towers were coming down, black smoke billowed from the Pentagon, and a plane had crashed in the Pennsylvania countryside. “I remember my parents freaking out — they had friends up there,” Megan Robinson said. “They’d left earlier in the day on a plane.” Eliza Gant: “I remember: No one showed up for Girl Scouts.” This time around — as

President Barack Obama would announce that U.S. forces had tracked, located and Frost killed Osama bin Laden, the terrorist mastermind behind the 9/11 attacks — kids in Frost’s class at West Junior High School had been doing what ninthg raders do: following friends on Twitter, texting with buddies, watching “Celebrity Apprentice” on TV. Just how much had

changed — both for the coming days and the years ahead — made for some interesting discussion Bissonnette Monday afternoon in Frost’s class, where comparative politics and national governance had been the focus of recent sessions. Now current events were changing the world. “ It n eve r s to p s ,” sa i d Colan Murphy, cautioning against complacency with al-Qaida from his desk in the front row. “The IRA did-

n’t stop just because they were against the British Army. “They’re desperate. Desperate people take desperate measures.” But Nicole Humphrey, a Free State High School student visiting the class, said that her AP U.S. History course had concluded that while terrorists led by bin Laden would become even more angry with the United States, the organization’s ability to respond would diminish. “The chances of carrying out those threats is highly unlikely,” she said, recounting her own class’ consensus. Leading the discussion was

Andrew Bissonnette, a 23year-old student teacher who had been in a high school French class when the 9/11 attacks occurred. Now, as a Kansas University senior, he listened intently as Frost’s students discussed their feelings, recalled their impressions and looked into the future. They may not have all the answers, he realized, but the learning process continued in Room C5. “Whether we know it or not,” Bissonnette told the class, “we’re all affected by this.” — Schools reporter Mark Fagan can be reached at 832-7188.

Local terrorism experts were cautious Monday about how Osama bin Laden’s death in Pakistan would affect the ability of al-Qaida to carry out future terrorist attacks. “In my view this is a much more decentralized warfare that we’ve faced now than before,” said Felix Moos, a Kansas University emeritus anthropology professor who has taught a course on intelligence and terrorism. Moos said it was understandable for Americans to celebrate bin Laden’s death, although he said al-Qaida and other terrorist groups have seemed to evolve since 9/ 11 , and they don’t need to be led from one base with one person in Olin command. “We must be better prepared to be very agile in many different settings,” Moos said. “And I wonder if we are.” Khatib Ron Olin, the retired longtime Lawrence police chief who teaches classes to law enforcement officers on terrorism and counter-terrorism, called bin Laden’s death a psychological victory for western nations because he was al-Qaida’s spiritual leader. But Olin said it’s unclear if it could affect how the terrorist organization operates tactically, mainly because it seems al-Qaida is decentralized compared with 10 years ago. “The plan for the 9/ 11 attacks was sophisticated. It exceeded its expectations in its success, and so in the context of having bin Laden alive for all of this time has just been salt in the wound,” said Olin, the current director of security and internal controls for Kansas Athletics Inc. “This changes the dynamic, and we don’t know in what ways yet.” Gov. Sam Brownback heightened the state’s threat alert Monday. Officials said there were no specific threats to Kansans or military installations, but they urge residents to report any suspicious activities. Lawrence Police Chief Tarik Khatib said law enforcement officers every day need to be aware of their surroundings, and terrorist groups today seem to operate more in individual cells instead of needing defined leadership. “As long as we have parts of the world where there is strife and dictatorships and leaders taking advantage of the less fortunate, you’re always going to have the potential for the recruitment of terrorism,” said Khatib, whose family fled Lebanon when he was a boy during a civil war in the mid-1970s. “They prey on people who don’t have anything.” Moos praised the execution of the raid and the work of intelligence analysts to link bin Laden to a compound where he was living in Pakistan. “I think we should be satisfied that some individual did a superb job putting all the information together and that we kept it within a relatively small group,” Moos said, “but on the other hand, it isn’t over until it’s over.” — Reporter George Diepenbrock can be reached at 832-7144.

Mission precision Americans have reason to be proud of the well-executed Navy Seals mission that eliminated the world’s top terrorist.


lmost 10 years after the Sept. 11 attacks killed nearly 3,000 people in New York and Washington, D.C., justice has been served. President Obama’s announcement late Sunday night that U.S. forces had found and killed Osama bin Laden was met in this country with a mixture of euphoria and relief. The fact that the revered head of the al-Qaida terrorist group had eluded capture for so long was a festering sore for the American people. The fact that U.S. Navy Seals were able to find bin Laden in a Pakistan mansion and execute a pinpoint mission to eliminate the terrorist certainly gives Americans reason to be proud. Obama deserves congratulations for giving the orders for the risky mission. As the president noted Sunday night, “The death of bin Laden marks the most significant achievement to date in our nation’s effort to defeat al-Qaida,” a battle that already has spanned three presidencies. During Bill Clinton’s term al-Qaida was blamed for the 1998 bombings of two U.S. embassies in Africa that killed 231 people and the 2000 attack on the USS Cole that killed 171 U.S. sailors in Yemen. Only a few months into George W. Bush’s presidency, bin Laden directed the Sept. 11 attacks in New York and Washington. The path that led U.S. forces to bin Laden was a long one. An assault that lasted only about 40 minutes early Monday morning Pakistan time, was years in the making. Reportedly aided by tips from detainees at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, U.S. intelligence officials were able to identify a trusted bin Laden courier four years ago. About two years ago, they were able to identify areas of Pakistan where the courier worked. Last August, they found his residence, a heavily fortified compound in a suburb of Islamabad. By February, intelligence placing bin Laden at the same address was strong enough that Obama decided to pursue what a senior official called “an aggressive course of action.” The next two and a half months were spent zeroing in on bin Laden and planning the mission to take him out. The precision with which that attack took place was impressive. It is a vivid reminder of the skill and dedication of our nation’s military forces who are deployed around the world. The sacrifices of our troops and their families are immense; the raid that killed bin Laden is just one example of their skill and courage. Bin Laden’s death is an important step in the global war against terrorism, but it does not mark the end of that battle. Others still are willing to pursue terrorist targets and may be at least temporarily spurred into acts of revenge against the nation that killed bin Laden. The world may be only a marginally safer place without Osama bin Laden, but the elimination of the terrorist leader gives the nation and the world an important psychological life. It provided proof that we are not helpless in the battle against those who want to do us harm and that even the elusive bin Laden eventually could be caught and punished. Americans should offer their congratulations and thanks to all those involved in this significant victory in the war on terror.

Intelligence gathering key to mission W A S H I N G T O N — Osama bin Laden’s death was announced by the president on May 1, a date that once had worldwide significance on the revolutionary calendar of communism, which was America’s absorbing national security preoccupation prior to Islamic terrorism. Times change. Barack Obama, in his pitchperfect address informing the nation that bin Laden is as dead as communism — never mind the cadaverous Cuban and North

George Will

Again: Granted, the “distinction between

military and law enforcement facets is not a bright line. But neither is it a distinction without a difference.”

Korean regimes — rightly stressed that this is “the most significant achievement to date” against al-Qaida, but that it “does not mark the end of” our effort to defeat that amorphous entity. Perhaps, however, America can use this occasion to draw a deep breath and some pertinent conclusions. Many salient facts about the tracking of terrorism’s most prolific killer to his lair — some lair: not a remote cave but an urban compound — must remain shrouded in secrecy, for now. But one surmise seems reasonable: bin Laden was brought down by intelligence gathering that more resembles excellent police work than a military operation. Granted, in nations as violent as Afghanistan and Pakistan, the line between military operations and police work is blurry, and military and other forms of intelligence gathering cannot be disentangled. Still, the enormous military footprint in Afghanistan, next door to bin Laden’s Pakistan refuge, seems especially dispro-

portionate in the wake of his elimination by a small cadre of specialists. Jim Lacey of the Marine Corps War College notes that Gen. David Petraeus has said there are perhaps about 100 al-Qaida fighters in Afghanistan. “Did anyone,” Lacey asks, “do the math?” There are, he says, more than 140,000 coalition soldiers in Afghanistan, or 1,400 for every al-Qaida fighter. It costs about $1 million a year to deploy and support every soldier — or up to $140 billion, or close to $1.5 billion a year, for each al-Qaida fighter. “In what universe do we find strategists to whom this makes sense?” There remains much more to al-Qaida than bin Laden, and there are many more tentacles to the terrorism threat than alQaida and its affiliates. So “the long war” must go on. But perhaps such language is bewitching our minds, because this is not essentially war. During the 2004 presidential campaign, John Kerry received much derision for his belief (as expressed in a Jan. 29 debate in South Carolina) that although the war on terror will be “occasionally military,” it is “primarily an intelligence and law enforce-

ment operation that requires cooperation around the world.” Kerry, as paraphrased by The New York Times Magazine of Oct. 10, thought “many of the interdiction tactics that cripple drug lords, including governments working jointly to share intelligence, patrol borders and force banks to identify suspicious customers, can also be some of the most useful tools in the war on terror.” True then; even more obviously true now. Again: Granted, the distinction between military and law enforcement facets is not a bright line. But neither is it a distinction without a difference. And the more we couch our thinking in military categories, the more we open ourselves to misadventures like the absurd and deepening one in Libya. There, our policy — if what seem to be hourly improvisations can be dignified as a policy — began as a no-fly zone to protect civilians from wanton violence. Seven weeks later, our policy is to decapitate the government by long-distance assassination and to intensify a civil war in that tribal society, in the name of humanitarianism. What makes this particularly surreal is that it

is being done by NATO. Unpack the acronym: North Atlantic Treaty Organization. NATO was created in 1949 to protect Western Europe from the Red Army. Its purpose was, in Lord Ismay’s famous formulation, “to keep the Russians out, the Americans in and the Germans down.” NATO, which could long ago have unfurled a “mission accomplished” banner, has now become an instrument of addlepated mischief. This is an episode of presidential malpractice. Obama has allowed NATO to be employed for the advancement of a halfbaked doctrine (R2P — “responsibility to protect”), a quarterbaked rationalization (was it just in March that Hillary Clinton discovered that a vital U.S. national interest required the removal of Moammar Gaddafi because he “is a man who has no conscience”?) and an unworthy national agenda (France’s pursuit of grandeur on the cheap). When this Libyan misadventure is finished, America needs a national debate about whether NATO should be finished. Times change.

Debt ceiling games have impact Since the onset of World War II, Congress has voted more than once a year to increase the legal ceiling on the national debt, raising it from $49 billion to the current $14.3 trillion, mostly in the last 30 years. On many occasions, the votes were sharply partisan, as each party in turn used the situation to criticize its rival’s alleged fiscal profligacy. Democrats opposed increases during Republican administrations; Republicans did so under Democrats. Both parties bear some responsibility. After all, due to a variety of factors, the national debt rose 85 percent during the eight years of the George W. Bush presidency and an additional 35 percent during President Barack Obama’s first two years. Generally, it was politically safe to vote against increasing the debt ceiling, since everyone knew Congress eventually would act to avert any threat to the nation’s financial stability. Congress never failed to raise the ceiling, though in 2008 the House initially rejected an economic bailout bill that included a $700 billion increase. Since 2006, however, lawmakers have wrapped debt ceiling increases into other “must” legislation, fearful a “stand-alone” bill might lose. As yet another such vote approaches, this year’s bitter partisan fighting over the deficit and several other factors threaten to produce a rejection both party leaderships acknowledge would be disastrous. They include these: ● Republican leaders see the vote as one of their best ways to force Obama to accept more of their prescriptions for curbing the deficit. While they tout the $38 billion cut by the recent agreement on this year’s budget, both sides recognize those reductions were relatively modest.

Beyond preventing the government from borrowing to pay its bills, even the threat of a shutdown could have a significant psychological impact, as Standard & Poor’s recently warned.” ● Many freshman House Republicans were elected after pledging to oppose the increase, forcing the GOP leadership to rely on Democrats who are not in much of a compromising mood. ● Recent polls show the country strongly opposes raising the debt ceiling, presumably in the mistaken belief that would somehow curb the deficit. ● Senate Democrats, and to some extent Obama, are reluctant to help Republicans achieve their goals of further slashing domestic programs and revamping Medicare. When Obama argues against rejecting the increase, he faces one highly embarrassing problem: his own 2006 vote against raising the debt ceiling and his contention that the need to do so “is a sign of leadership failure.” Indeed, Obama voted only once as a senator to raise the debt ceiling, missing two other votes. As the country’s debt nears the legal limit, which officials expect to happen in mid-May, it’s unclear how much impact repeated warnings against allowing that to hap-

pen will have on members of Congress. For one thing, Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner has indicated the government probably can use various legal means to avoid any crisis until about July 8, giving lawmakers an excuse to delay a showdown until late June. They showed during the recent battle over the 2011 budget that they were willing to squabble until within hours of the deadline, even if failure to agree might have forced the government to shut some services. Still, there is general agreement this situation is far more dangerous than that one, which might have mainly kept some federal workers home and shut museums and national parks. Beyond preventing the government from borrowing to pay its bills, even the threat of a shutdown could have a significant psychological impact, as Standard & Poor’s recently warned. That was echoed by former Treasury Secretaries Robert Rubin, a Democrat, and Paul O’Neill, a Republican. “An impasse or serious threats with respect to a default” can do “great damage to confidence in our political system, and potentially to our markets,” Rubin said on CNN’s “Fareed Zakaria GPS.” Asked if he agreed, O’Neill replied, “Absolutely.” But a day later, House Speaker John Boehner showed little had changed, warning he might not even allow a House vote on the debt ceiling unless Obama agreed to major entitlement cuts. “If the president doesn’t get serious about the need to address our fiscal nightmare, yeah, there’s a chance it (the debt limit vote) could not happen,” he told “But that’s not my goal.” One would hope not. — Carl P.

In the wake of concern over international news on the Soviet nuclear YEARS accident, AGO Lawrence resiIN 1986 dents were assured as to the safety of the 25-year-old research reactor at Kansas University. “The fuel has been shipped away and the reactor at this moment is just an empty tank,” said Harold Rosson, the KU engineering professor who had coordinated the dismantling process. “In other words, it’s no longer a reactor.” The fuel had been removed in late January and early February and had been shipped to a reprocessing plant in South Carolina. Very little residual radiation remained in the tank. “It’s not hazardous,” said Rosson. “It’s just a great big piece of concrete and it would be expensive to remove, so I expect it will stay in its place for a long time.”


From the Lawrence Daily Journal-World for May 3, 1911: YEARS “Lawrence will AGO become the home IN 1911 of the largest flouring mill in Kansas, if the plans of the Bowersock Milling company culminate as projected. It is proposed to duplicate the present flouring mill by the erection of a five story twin building just to the west of the present structure, and extending a commodious warehouse under the present Kaw bridge. The proposed addition will increase the daily production of the Bowersock to 1,500 barrels of flour a day, an amount which means the daily consumption of approximately 7,000 bushels of wheat. There is no other mill in Kansas which is equipped to grind seven cars of wheat daily. — Compiled by Sarah St. John

Kansas man accused of Rwandan genocide WICHITA — A Kansas man shook his head as a former neighbor of his rural village testified about brutal killings during the 1994 Rwandan genocide. The testimony came Monday in the trial of 84-year-old Lazare Kobagaya. The Topeka resident is charged with lying to U.S. immigration officials COURTS about his role in Rwanda’s ethnic mass killings. Kobagaya has denied the charges. A neighbor, Valens Murindangabo, told jurors he heard Kobagaya tell another man to kill two teenage boys he found at a watering hole. He also told testified Kobagaya agreed with others that a Tutsi woman and her baby found in their village should be killed. The defense on cross examination pointed out that Kobagaya was not initially accused in the neighbor’s previous testimony in other trials.

KJHK Presents: Greg Enemy, Farout, Atilla and Bennykress KJHK’s show tonight at the Jackpot Music Hall, 943 Mass., is an eclectic event to be sure, but it’s the headliner and the opening act that have our attention. The early show starts at 6:30 p.m. with Bennykress, an indie hip-hop solo act with some remarkably smooth, electronic-based production and a dynamic flow that can fit more upbeat, dance-friendly tracks as well as slower, declarative hip-hop. Bennykress is followed by Atilla and then Farout, two bands that are absolutely worth watching, and then the show’s closer, Greg Enemy. Greg Enemy has been honing his performance for some time now and it shows. Enemy can command a crowd with his likable stage presence and excellent skills on the mic. Tonight’s show is for grownups 18 and older and is $5 if you’re older than 21, $7 if you’re not.

Local triathlete generous She competes in races that require her to swim 1.2 miles, bike 56 miles, then run 13.1 miles. The obvious question: Why is Pip Taylor always smiling? Because she loves what she does for a living (professional triathlete), loves where she lives (half the year in her native Australia, half the year in Lawrence, escapes winter twice), and on this particular day, loved being surrounded by young girls. One of the top talents scheduled to compete in Ironman 70.3 Kansas on June 12, Taylor was the celebrity guest at the “Strong Girls TryAthlon” last Taylor Wednesday on the field just east of the Robinson Center. What is Strong Girls? Glad you asked. Mary Fry, associate professor in Health, Sport and Exercise Science at Kansas University, and Liz Dobbins, adjunct professor in the department, are two years into what Fry called “a research and service project.” (It’s a lot more fun than it sounds.) Every Wednesday, all semester, girls from two local elementary schools have been transported to KU by bus for a few hours of exercise that had them pointing to last week’s TryAthlon that didn’t require the girls from third, fourth, fifth and sixth grade to swim 1.2 miles, bike 56 miles and run 13.1 miles. All the smiles in the Strong Girls group picture on proves the project — supported by KU student volunteers, grants and local donations — has been a big success. The last thing Taylor said when she left last week’s TryAthlon to resume training was, “I’ll be back next week.” Wednesday is the final gathering of the semester. Taylor has been living in Lawrence, a half-year at a time, for three years now and she’s already giving back to the community. “I love Lawrence,” Taylor said. “For me, it works out really well in terms of facilities and where and how I get to train. But the biggest factor for me is the people, how welcoming and helpful they are. It makes it a second home.” She mentioned another positive aspect of Lawrence. “I love downtown,” she said. “It’s really pretty. Lots of history. A lot of energy. That was another thing that drew me to the town in the first place.” Dobbins drew her friend Taylor to Strong Girls. The project demonstrates that at a grassroots level, when both sides aren’t driven by financial concerns, town-gown projects benefit everybody. Without a research project and all the KU student volunteers, Strong Girls would get weaker watching video games and TV. No elementary-school students, no research subjects. “One of our research findings from the spring is the girls feel better about themselves, about being physically active,” Fry said. “They also adopted what we call a task orientation. That’s when you define success based on your effort and improvement. That’s exciting. That’s what you need in life, feeling good about giving your best effort.” ’Atta-girls for genuinely trying their hardest and getting better took the place of trophies.

KANSAS UNIVERSITY WIDE RECEIVERS COACH DAVID BEATY, RIGHT, DELIVERS instructions to KU wideout D.J. Beshears on April 18 at the KU practice field. Beaty rejoined the Jayhawks’ staff after serving as offensive coordinator at Rice last season.

WR coach Beaty sets lofty goals in second go-around By Jesse Newell

Kale Pick was here because he’d forgotten the snap count. During a practice early last week, the Kansas University wide receiver picked up a false start penalty after not remembering his team was trying to draw the defense off side. So after practice, in a steady rain, Pick remained on the field with three teammates and KU receivers coach David Beaty.

Pick jogged in place before completing 10 up-downs on the wet turf. Some days, the discipline is updowns. Other days, it’s sprints. Every day, though, KU’s receivers are being held accountable for their actions under Beaty, who has rejoined KU this season as receivers coach after serving as offensive coordinator at Rice University last year. “They know that I have high expectations for them,” Beaty said, “and they never back down, no

matter how much I get onto them and what tempo I set for them.” Beaty, who was previously KU’s receivers coach in 2008 and 2009, has had plenty of time to focus on his receivers after moving back into his old house in Lawrence. He jokes that the mailman won’t deliver to his house because it appears that no one is living there. There’s no furniture, and Beaty’s wife and two daughters haven’t joined him in Lawrence yet, though the coach says he’s counting down the days.

In the meantime, Beaty has devoted most of his time working to develop a receiving corps he says is deeper than any he’s had at KU. “There’s so much that goes into playing out there. People just think you run a straight line or a wiggly line and you go catch a pass,” Beaty said. “There’s a lot more to that, to really good receivers in this league. They understand the nuances of it. Please see BEATY, page 3B

Reed, Garlington awarded scholar athletes of year By Matt Tait

Nearly four years ago, Kansas University seniors Tyrel Reed and Karina Garlington shared the experience of their first class at KU together. Monday night, at the 2011 Jayhawk Senior & Scholar Athlete Banquet, the two shared the stage to receive the Robert Frederick Senior Scholar Athletes of the Year awards, the most prestigious honor of the night. “Oh my gosh,” said Garlington, a standout for the KU volleyball

team. “It was an unbelievable night. I’m just so humbled, so honored to be awarded all the amazing things and I just couldn’t have asked for anything else.” Sharing such a night with her old pal only made things better. “We became really good friends and I’ve just so enjoyed his success,” Garlington said of Reed, the KU men’s basketball player who racked up a schoolrecord 132 victories during his four-year career. “It’s great being a student-athlete around so many other amazing studentathletes. It means so much. Hon-

estly, I think that’s the biggest honor that an athlete at KU could receive. I was just super-touched and very honored.” For Reed, who, along with Garlington, also was recognized a few other times throughout the evening, the experience of being cheered at Allen Fieldhouse was nothing new. Doing it while standing 20 feet off the ground in a suit was, well, “Different,” Reed said. “I’m not much of a suit wearNick Krug/Journal-World Photo er, but it was a good time.

Tharpe’s prep teammate undecided on Kansas By Gary Bedore

Brewster Academy senior point guard Naadir Tharpe hasn’t tried to actively recruit his prep school teammate to Kansas University just yet. “He just says he’s going to Kansas to win a national ‘ship. That’s all he says to me,” said Mitch McGary, a 6-foot-10, 250pound junior from the

Wolfeboro, N.H., school, who made an unofficial visit to KU last weekend while in town for the Jayhawk Invitational. Tharpe, a 6-foot, 170-pounder originally from Worchester, Mass., this summer will join fellow Brewster graduate Thomas Robinson at KU. “I know Kansas is a great school. We’ve got a few alumni from Brewster going there,” said SYF Players power forward/cen-

ter McGary who made the alltournament team at last weekend’s Invitational. “They’ve got one of the classiest coaches in Bill Self. I like the program. It’s always at the top of the nation. “I’m not sure right now,” he added, asked where KU stands in his recruitment. “I’m wide open in recruiting.” The Chesterton, Ind., native, is considering KU, Indiana,

UConn, Pitt, West Virginia, Illinois, Duke, Arizona, Florida, Texas, Michigan, Purdue, Marquette and many others. The mobile big man, with a soft lefthanded touch that extends past the three point line, explained his decision to attend Brewster both this year and next. “Indiana basketball is the best, McGary made an but I had to go for academics.

NFL NFL back in court MINNEAPOLIS — With its players again barred from work, the NFL told a federal appeals court Monday the fight over whether the lockout is legal won’t get in the way of the 2011 season. The rest of the labor fight? That’s anyone’s guess. The league filed an 18-page brief with the 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in St. Louis, arguing that the lockout should remain in effect permanently while appeals play out. The appeals court put U.S. District Judge Susan Richard Nelson’s order lifting the 45-day lockout on hold temporarily last week. The owners reinstated the lockout a few hours later, and they want a more permanent stay of Nelson’s order so they can argue that it should be overturned altogether.

Duerson had brain damage BOSTON — Dave Duerson, a former NFL player who committed suicide in February, had “moderately advanced” brain damage related to blows to the head, according to the researcher who made the diagnosis. “It’s indisputable” that Duerson had chronic traumatic encephalopathy, a disorder linked to repeated brain trauma, Dr. Ann McKee said Monday. The findings were announced as part of an effort conducted by the Center for the Study of Traumatic Encephalopathy at Boston University’s School of Medicine. The CSTE Brain Bank has the brains of more than 70 athletes and military veterans, with football players comprising more than half of the athletes. Duerson played safety in the NFL for 11 seasons, seven with the Chicago Bears, and was chosen for four Pro Bowls before retiring in 1993.

WASHINGTON NATIONALS FIRST BASE COACH DAN RADISON (53) MEETS with members of the U.S. Navy before the Nationals’ baseball game against the San Francisco Giants on Monday in Washington.

Bin Laden death draws reaction in sports world WASHINGTON (AP) — Before the top of the fourth inning on Military Appreciation Night at Nationals Park, the public address announcer encouraged everyone at the baseball stadium to cheer for the active or retired members of the service who were in the stands Monday, recipients of free tickets. As Lee Greenwood’s “God Bless the USA” blared through the ballpark, and the message “Thank You for Your Service and Sacrifice” dominated the HD scoreboard, a group of military personnel seated a few rows behind home plate waved their red Nationals baseball caps. Thousands of fans rose to applaud. Members of the Nationals, spread around the diamond, preparing to play defense — and wearing what the team called “patriotic” uniforms, with stars-andstripes curly “Ws” on the chests of their blue jerseys — provided their own standing ovation. The World Series champion San Francisco Giants stood in the visiting dugout and bullpen, clapping, too. Talk about a coincidence: Less than 24 hours after President Barack Obama announced that terrorist leader Osama bin Laden was killed by U.S. forces in Pakistan, the Nationals honored the military — an event the team said it began planning in the offseason and announced to the public a week ago. “That’s amazing, the way the timing worked out for that,” Nationals manager Jim Riggleman said before the game. “Really a great opportunity for our fans ... to honor our military vets and wounded warriors. Those who are here tonight are going to be beaming with pride about what took place last night.” As part of Military Appreciation Night, military personnel were allowed to receive up to four free tickets; a member of the Army threw out the ceremonial first pitch; a member of the Navy sang the National Anthem; two red Coast Guard helicopters did a flyover before f irst pitch; and other uniformed military personnel jogged out as if to play defense position before being joined by the real ballplayers. In addition to meeting baseball players, some members of the military in attendance also got to shake hands with NASCAR driver Kyle Busch, who was at the stadium. “It’s funny how things work out sometimes: The day after we take down one of the biggest individual terrorists in the world, we can come out here and kind of celebrate it,” Washington pitcher Tyler Clip-

AS A GIANT U.S. FLAG DROPS ACROSS THE LEFT FIELD WALL, THE BOSTON RED SOX PAUSE for a moment of silence prior to facing the Los Angeles Angels on Monday in Boston. A day after the raid on Osama bin Laden’s compound in Pakistan, the Red Sox honored those who died on Sept. 11, 2001. From left are manager Terry Francona, Mike Cameron, Dustin Pedroia, Jacoby Ellsbury and Jarrod Saltalamacchia. pard said. “For it to fall on the day after is sort of ironic.” While Washington’s players are used to being in the nation’s capital, of course, the Giants were excited to be in town — they toured the Supreme Court before Monday’s game. After playing four games in Washington at a historic time, they now open a three-game series at the New York Mets on Tuesday. “We’re in our nation’s capital here, and we get that kind of news, and now we’re off to New York — Ground Zero,” San Francisco pitcher Brian Wilson said. “It’s going to be quite an emotional week for a lot of people — baseball being one of them, playing America’s sport here.” In the wake of bin Laden’s death, security was a prime concern. The NBA told all playoff teams to check fans with metal detector wands as they entered. The policy was in effect as crowds came to the United Center in Chicago on Monday night for the Eastern Conference semifinal opener between the Bulls and Atlanta. Kristina Palacios of Chicago appreciated the extra measures, saying they “make you feel safe.” Her boyfriend, John Comia, said the search was “quick and efficient.” NHL Deputy Commissioner Bill Daly said the league had been “in contact with each of our remaining venues and they will be taking steps as they deem appropriate given the information we have.” Major League Baseball said it would continue working with its teams and local law enforcement “to monitor what’s occurring on a day-to-day basis.” Salutes to the military poured in throughout the sports world. “I think that the word ‘heroes’ are used far too often when you talk about athletes and actors,” New York Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez said. “The real heroes are out on the bat-

tlefields, protecting our well being, allowing us the opportunity to play baseball or take our daughters or kids to the park. They’re the real heroes.” Tweeted tennis star Andy Roddick: “Words cannot do justice to the amount of thanks we should bestow upon those whose life mission it is to keep the world safe. Thank you.” Rory McIlroy, the 21-year-old golfer from Northern Ireland, posted on Twitter: “Bye bye bin Laden!! Good riddance I say!!” “The biggest thing I’m happy for is that the troops that were in there all came back in one piece. That’s dangerous. That’s the No. 1 thing,” Atlanta Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez said. All over ballparks and arenas, there were sights, signs and sounds it was an extraordinary day. The San Diego Padres, who bill themselves as the team of the military, wore their camouflage jerseys for the game against Pittsburgh. The Padres normally put on the special tops for Sunday home games, but players requested that they wear them Monday night. The Navy SEALs train on Coronado, just across San Diego Bay from downtown. “I think a lot of the fans are going to take it that we’re wearing it because Osama bin Laden’s dead. That’s not the reason we’re wearing it,” said Padres pitcher Mat Latos, who displayed a Team USA basketball jersey. “We’re wearing it because we’re in support of out troops. That’s the reason my Team USA jersey is hanging up in my locker, for my friends that I personally know that are overseas right now,” he said. “This night is for our military troops, the men and women that protect and serve us. It’s not for Osama bin Laden, it’s not for the triumph or whatever you want to call it. It’s strictly for what those people have done for us.” ● More reaction on page 6C

Jayhawks add juco linebacker Wright By Matt Tait

Throughout the offseason, adding speed had been a major point of emphasis for the Kansas University football program. Last weekend, the KU coaching staff added a little beef, too. Junior-college linebacker Isaac Wright told on Sunday that he would attend Kansas as a walk-on. Wright, 6-foot-3, 245 pounds, hails from Washington High in Kansas City, Kan. He spent the last two seasons at Independence Community


“For young guys, it takes them a while to understand scheme and wrap their mind around that so they can learn how to be crafty.” Beaty also has put extra focus on another aspect of the position: blocking. KU struggled last season with its wide-receiver screens, and part of the reason was inconsistent blocking on the outside. In many practices this spring, Beaty has run his receivers through blocking

College. In 2010, he recorded 88 tackles — nine for loss — from his inside linebacker position, a feat that opened some eyes around the college football world. Arkansas offered Wright a spot as a preferred walk-on, and, initially, it looked as if that’s where the linebacker would go. But things fell through, paving the way for Kansas and Iowa State to come calling. Wright, who was recruited by cornerbacks coach Vic Shealy and defensive coordinator Carl Torbush, said he chose KU because it was the best fit. “When I had a chance to

talk with Kansas, it was an easy pick,” he told Rivals. “Although I am just a walk-on it feels real good. It is only 30 minutes from home and my family can come see me play.” Wright will join the team this summer and will have two years of eligibility remaining. He becomes the third junior-college linebacker added to the team this offseason, joining Highland CC’s Tunde Bakare, who will report to the team this summer, and Navarro Junior College’s Malcolm Walker, who already is in town and led the Jayhawks in tackles during

last weekend’s annual spring Jerry Glanville, who made game. Thorson the 20th overall pick. Glanville said he selected Thorson taken in UFL draft Thorson largely because of Former KU offensive line- his versatility. Four of Hartman Brad ford’s first five picks in the 10round draft were offensive Thorson, who was lineman. Being picked by Hartford bypassed in last week- does not mean Thorson will end’s NFL play for the Colonials. With Draft, was the NFL lockout still in place, selected in teams are not permitted to the fourth sign free agents. However, round of once the lockout is lifted, Thorson Thorson would be eligible to Monday night’s UFL Draft by the Hart- sign as a free agent and could attempt to make an NFL rosford Colonials. The Colonials are coached ter by surviving training by former NFL head coach camp.

drills to make sure they know their responsibilities on each play. “We know that it’s an ifthen relationship, and if we block, then we will be able to catch balls,” Beaty said. “It’s a role that we play and we take a lot of pride in. And I’m trying to continue to instill that in our kids. I’m starting to see a lot more physicality out of them, and they’re starting to take pride in it.” So far, Beaty said one of the most impressive receivers has been Pick, who converted to the position from quarterback last season. Beaty, who also coached QB-turned-receiver Kerry Meier, said the two players

have similar personalities that allowed them to make the transition smoothly. “I think just his overall wo rk e t h i c , d e s i re, h i s relentlessness ... those kids see that and they want to imitate that. They want to be like that,” Beaty said of Pick. “They see how hard he plays on every snap, and they see, quite honestly, just about every day I can use him as an example on anything in a positive way.” Beaty also complimented Pick’s hands and route-running, saying he was “very much a natural player” at his new position. Out of all the receivers,

Beaty said Pick had the best spring. “He’s going to outwork people,” Beaty said. “He’s going to make you play him.” In addition to Pick, Beaty also said he was excited about senior Daymond Patterson, junior D.J. Beshears and soph Chris Omigie, among others. More than anything, Beaty said he’s glad to be back at home in Lawrence — even if that home, for now, is mostly empty. “Just being in this town, being a Jayhawk is really important,” Beaty said, “and is really something that I fell in love with before and I’m excited to be back and be a part of.”


for all those great honors. I don’t know how deserving I am. I think I’m just a normal kid, but it was really good.” Reed, an academic AllAmerican who graduated in three and a half years last December while majoring in exercise science/pre-physical therapy, said being back in the Fieldhouse one final time made Monday’s event even more sentimental. “This is probably the last time I’m going to be in here at a big function while a studentathlete,” he said. “It’s nice to have a culmination of my four years, and it’s great to see everyone here and see all these student-athletes getting recognized.” As for the suit, a black number with a thin pinstripe, Reed said he picked that up during a recent trip to Oklahoma City, where he visited former teammate Cole Aldrich, now a member of the NBA’s Oklahoma City Thunder. Reed said Aldrich helped him pick out the duds specifically for the event. Despite preferring gym shorts and high tops to the stuffy suit, Reed tipped his cap to Aldrich for the help. “He’s got OK style,” he said. “He’s probably got a stylist, but he’s all right.” Reed and Garlington were not the only honorees to bring home some hardware from Monday’s banquet. Other winners included: ● Reed and Garlington were joined by TJ Walz (baseball), Brady Morningstar (men’s basketball), Jake Laptad (football), Nicole Schneider (rowing), Brittany Hile (softball), Iuliia Kuzhil (swimming and diving), Jordan Scott (men’s track and field) and Kendra Bradley


probably wouldn’t have qualified (for college) if I stayed at my old high school,” McGary said. “This is more structured. I have ADD, attention deficit disorder. I can’t focus in bigger classes.” McGary, who made the academic honor roll at Brewster, continued his praise of the school where he’ll take postgraduate classes next year after reclassifying to the Class of 2012. “The transition has been so good for me. I’ve got my grades handled so a lot of schools are looking at me now. (Also) being in the weight room and gym every

KANSAS VOLLEYBALL PLAYER KARINA GARLINGTON APPROACHES the stage to receive the female scholar athlete of the year award Monday at Allen Fieldhouse. (women’s track and field) in being named senior athletes of the year. Scott, the reigning NCAA pole vault champion known for his wild and crazy hairdos, sported a blackstriped mohawk look with bright red adorning each side. Asked why he went with black instead of blue, Scott said he wanted to match his suit. ● Alex Smith was awarded the Senior Walk-On of the Year award for his efforts on the football field. Smith, a senior from Basehor, rarely played during his four seasons with the Jayhawks but made quite an impression with his coaches and teammates. “He always had a great smile on his face, came to work every day, was very passionate and I saw our players

respond to him,” KU football coach Turner Gill said. ● Iconic football figure Don Fambrough was honored with the K Club Service Award. Fambrough, a player in the 1940s and two-time head coach in the 1970s and early ’80s, also was toasted during emcee David Lawrence’s introduction. ● Del Shankel, a Professor Emeritus of Biology, was honored by athletic director Sheahon Zenger with the Kansas Athletics Lifetime Service Award. Moments earlier, the award that bears Shankel’s name, which honors teaching excellence, was presented to Samira Sayeh, a professor of French and Italian. ● The Jayhawk CHAMPS award, given annually to the

day .. it’s helped me a lot being at Brewster,” McGary said. Here’s’s scouting report on McGary,’s No. 92-rated player in the Class of 2012: “He is a physically imposing presence in the paint with good size, tremendous upper body strength, and limitless energy and physicality. He is proactive seeking out contact inside, a consistent finisher, and high volume two way rebounder. He is incredibly active with a terrific motor and great toughness. The lefty is skilled enough to stretch the defense to 18 feet, has the dexterity to dunk with both hands in congestion, and sets big screens both on and off the ball. He runs well in straight lines and has pretty soft hands around the basket.”

Lacey in Kentucky: Trevor Lacey, a 6-3 senior guard from Butler High in Huntsville Ala., is on a Monday-Wednesday recruiting visit to Kentucky, the Louisville Courier-Journal reports. Lacey, who has visited Alabama and Auburn, is expected to visit KU and North Carolina State before the May 18 conclusion of the spring signing period. Lacey on Monday night was to observe the f irst-ever “Kentucky Combine.” Kentucky coach John Calipari was to welcome NBA personnel from 20 teams to work out Wildcat players Brandon Knight, Terrence Jones and DeAndre Liggins, who have until May 8 to decide whether to stay in the NBA Draft or return to school.

team that tallies the most points in areas such as personal development opportunities, camaraderie between programs, community service and team GPA, was given to Ray Bechard’s volleyball girls. ● The Prentice Gautt Big 12 Postgraduate Scholarship winners were Nicole Schneider, a rower, majoring in civil engineering who owns a 3.94 GPA, and Jareb Stallbaumer, a 4.0-GPA track athlete, majoring in pharmacy. Both received $7,500 scholarships for postgraduate studies. ● Stallbaumer and Schneider also were two of the 11 honorees for The Dr. Gerald Lage Award, known throughout the Big 12 as the conference’s highest academic honor. Others who received the Lage Award were: men’s golfer Jeff Bell; football player Brian Blackwell; rower Melanie Luthi; volleyball player Paige Mazour; track athlete Jaci Perryman; rower Lauren Pollmiller; swimmers Alyssa and Brittany Potter; and rower Stacy Rachow. The night also featured presentations from former football player Dan Coke, who led the invocation, graduating football player Bradley Dedeaux, who honored tutors Bill Nolan, Nicolas Shump, Nicole Pope, Krista Phair, Ali Brox, Jaime Keating, Chris Fertig, Kyra Kelley and Ev Karney, and Zenger, presiding over his first scholar and senior athlete banquet as the KU athletic director.

Red Sox hand Weaver first loss The Associated Press

Red Sox 9, Angels 5 BOSTON — Dustin Pedroia fouled off nine pitches in a 13pitch at-bat against Jered Weaver before lining a goahead, two-run single that helped the Boston Red Sox beat the Los Angeles Angels on Monday night. The loss was Weaver’s first of the season. Weaver (6-1), who was scratched Sunday due to a stomach virus, gave up three runs, six hits, struck out six and walked one over six innings. Weaver failed to become the first pitcher since 1891 to go 7-0 by May 2 or sooner.

Yankees 5, Tigers 3 DETROIT — Nick Swisher hit a tiebreaking single in the ninth off closer Jose Valverde and New York handed Detroit its seventh straight defeat. The Tigers rallied from a 30 deficit, tying it in the seventh on Alex Avila’s second solo home run of the night, but the Yankees broke through in their last at-bat against Valverde (2-1). With runners on first and second and one out, Swisher singled up the middle and Mark Teixeira scored from second with a slide. Alex Rodriguez added another run when he scored from third on a passed ball by Avila. New York

Hawks knock off Bulls The Associated Press

Hawks 103, Bulls 95 C H I C A G O — Joe Johnson scored 34 points and Atlanta beat top-seeded Chicago on Monday night in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference semifinals. The Bulls got a scare when Derrick Rose came up limping at the end of the game. He stepped on Jamal Crawford’s foot as he dribbled out the final seconds and was helped off by teammates and a trainer. The Hawks went on a 15-2 run that bridged the third and fourth quarters to take an 8071 lead with 10:27 remaining. Johnson hit three three-pointers and scored 11 points during that stretch. Game 2 is Wednesday night at the United Center. Johnson hit 12 of 18 shots and all f ive three-point attempts. Crawford scored 22 points for the Hawks, who shot 51.3 percent. Rose scored 24 points on 11of-27 shooting. Luol Deng scored 21 points for Chicago.

Mavericks 96, Lakers 94 LOS ANGELES — Dirk Nowitzki scored 28 points and made two go-ahead free throws with 19.5 seconds left before Pau Gasol and Kobe Bryant made a crucial turnover, and the Dallas Mavericks rallied in Game 1 of their second-round playoff series. Nowitzki had 14 rebounds for the Mavericks, who dramatically rallied from a 16point deficit in the second half of the perennial playoff teams’ first postseason meeting in 23 years. Bryant scored 21 of his 36 points in the second half for the Lakers, but he fell down while trying to get the ball from Gasol with 5 seconds to play. After one free throw by Jason Kidd, Bryant missed a three-pointer.

BOSTON’S PAUL PIERCE WAS EJECTED in the Celtics’ game against Miami on Sunday. Game 2 is tonight in Miami.

Boston, Miami both physical MIAMI (AP) — Paul Pierce is from Los Angeles, so he knows a thing or do about Hollywood. And he knows he’ll have to act better if the Boston Celtics are going to avoid getting into a quick two-game hole in their Eastern Conference semifinal series against the Miami Heat. A day after getting ejected from Boston’s Game 1 loss, Pierce acknowledged that his actions were “selfish” and that he needed to do a better job keeping his composure. Nonetheless, he still believes that he was more victim than aggressor during the two plays in which he got technical fouls that sent him to the locker room with 7 minutes left in Miami’s 99-90 victory.

Johnson plays like MVP for Hawks By David Haugh Chicago Tribune

CHICAGO — This afternoon, Derrick Rose will humbly accept the NBA Most Valuable Player trophy as the league’s youngest recipient ever. He will have to force a smile. Along with every Bulls fans watching — and suddenly worrying. In a stunning, uninspired 103-95 loss Monday night to the Hawks, Joe Johnson did what everybody expected Rose to do. Johnson dominated from start to finish no matter who tried to guard him, scoring 34 points in giving the Bulls a defeat for which many were unprepared. Nobody more than the supposed No. 1 seed in the playoffs. If the insults won’t be hard enough for the Bulls to endure, add injury too. Rose came down awkwardly on his left ankle in the closing seconds while applying ball pressure to Jamal Crawford. A night that was supposed to mark the return of the Bulls’ swagger ended, fittingly, with a limp. It was the same ankle Rose sprained in the Pacers series, though he stressed treatment will make him ready by Wednesday’s Game 2. “If anything it can’t get any worse than this,” Rose said. He was talking about the

he clashed with James Jones with 7:59 remaining following a hard foul, then exchanged words with Dwyane Wade 59 seconds later after the Heat guard ran into his screen. Double-technicals were called after both plays, and Pierce’s ejection was automatic on the second. “I thought I was fouled excessively on both plays,” Pierce said. So did Boston coach Doc Rivers, who is not wavering from the stance he offered in the minutes following Game 1, when he said the Heat were more “chippy” than “physical.” But on Monday, while not backing off that assertion, Rivers said the Celtics had bigger issues than whistles that didn’t go their way. “We didn’t handle it very well,” Rivers said. “Overall, I thought they hit f irst the entire game. I’m talking legally — I’m talking their picks, their cuts, their actions. I just thought they played the game with a better force than we played the game, and that’s something that shouldn’t happen. Both teams should play with the same force.” What Wade and Jones did that hurt Boston most had nothing to do with the two plays that ended Pierce’s night. They combined for 63 points on 19-for-28 shooting from the field and an 18-for-19 combined performance from the foul line. Those numbers made LeBron James’ 22-point, six-rebound, five-assist statline seem quiet by comparison. “I would approach this game just like I would approach this game whether I had 12 points (in Game 1) or 38,” Wade said. “For me, every game is different with this team. Certain nights, my job is going to be different. They put a lot of attention toward LeBron so I got an opportunity to not have all eyes on me so I got into a rhythm. It might be different next game.”

Grizzlies dominate paint against Thunder Game 2 is tonight in Oklahoma City. The Grizzlies, who led the NBA with 51. 5 points per game in the paint, averaged a whopping 59 against Oklahoma City while winning the regular-season series 3-1. The Thunder’s only win came when Memphis scored 60 points inside but went 10-for38 outside the paint, including 1 for 15 on three-pointers. “We just have to pack the paint,” Harden said. “Pack the paint, clog it up, make them shoot outside jump shots. They lead the league in paint points, so we have to cover that up.” Randolph has set the Grizzlies’ playoff scoring record in back-to-back games, with 31 points in Game 6 against topseeded San Antonio and then 34 — along with 10 rebounds — in Game 1 at Oklahoma City.

speak.” My husband says I should simply say, “She’s fine,” and leave it at that. But the one time I did, the woman exclaimed, “How can that be? She was in a car wreck yesterday!” leaving us both embarrassed. What is the best way to handle such inquiries? — Better Off Without Mom

Dear Better Off: If you don’t mind telling people that you are not speaking to your have job-training programs mother, it’s fine to say so, as for women in your position. long as it doesn’t provoke a Call the governor’s office or your state Department of Labor and ask. Most states also now offer 2-1-1 phone lines that can direct you to resources, including lowcost legal assistance. And please reach out to your family, church and local community centers for help.

“Daily Show” veteran Brian Unger hosts the new series “How the States Got Their Shapes” (9 p.m., History). He serves as a jokey ringleader for a road trip about boundaries that ricochets from sea to shining sea. The first episode explores the role water has played in creating the map of the United States. Of the 50 states, only four — Colorado, Utah, Montana and Wyoming — lack a water-defined border. We’re also told how Maine’s boundary with Canada was determined by the flow of river water. Unger puts a human face on mere geography with quip-laden interchanges with locals. One Georgia native and avid golfer demonstrates that the state’s potential water supply is actually only a “chip shot” removed from the state line. Tennessee residents have their own reasons for concern. Unger spends time in a bar just over the Tennessee line. Should the map be redrawn, their watering hole would not only reside on Georgia soil but in a dry county. Their sentiments boil down to “take our water, but leave our beer behind.” “Shapes” presents plenty of interesting and fun facts, but Unger seems to have been hired to slow things down and spoon-feed the information with dollops of wisecracks and person-on-the-street quizzes modeled on Jay Leno’s “Jaywalking” segments. Like too many new series on the History Channel, it seems designed not for history buffs but for viewers too busy or distracted to bother reading entertaining books like “How the States Got Their Shapes.” ● “A Film Unfinished” on “Independent Lens” (9 p.m. PBS, check local listings) presents recently rediscovered footage from a Nazi propaganda film shot in the Warsaw Ghetto in the mid-1940s. Although the movie was meant to demonstrate the benevolent rule of the Germans over the Poles and Jews they had conquered, the raw footage and outtakes, unseen for six decades, offer a horrifying look at the Nazi oppression of the Jews. Much of the footage takes on a dreamlike quality — or rather that of a nightmare. Most of the Jews captured by the German camera crews would be rounded up and sent to extermination camps shortly after these segments were shot.

Tonight’s other highlights ● “Black in Latin America” (7 p.m., PBS, check local listings) examines Brazil’s unique culture. ● Sue uses the power of journalism on “Glee” (7 p.m., Fox). ● Jamie discovers his betrayer on “Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution” (7 p.m., ABC). ● Derek goes undercover on “NCIS: Los Angeles” (8 p.m., CBS). ● Blind auditions continue on “The Voice” (8 p.m., NBC). ● Hurting and flirting on “Raising Hope” (8 p.m., Fox). ● A contestant goes home on “Dancing with the Stars” (8 p.m., ABC). ● “Frontline” (8 p.m., PBS, check local listings) examines the future of al-Qaida. ● GPS tracking looms large on “Traffic Light” (8:30 p.m., Fox). ● An old rival (Martha Plimpton) needs help on “The Good Wife” (9 p.m., CBS). ● A victim reminds Megan of her late father on “Body of Proof” (9 p.m., ABC).

Dear Annie: I have been with my husband for more than 25 years. During that period, he has cheated countless times, left me for other women and developed a crack habit. I have tried to stick it out because I believe marriage is for better or worse. Right now is def initely “worse.” He will not admit that he has a problem. He hangs out with some shady individuals who knock on our door day and night. He cannot pay the bills because he spends the money on drugs. If I venture an opinion, he blows his top or leaves the house and stays out until the next morning. He constantly accuses me of cheating. It does not seem like a marriage anymore. We share the same bed and try to be cordial to each other. But we are like roommates. I know it is over. I have no money, no car and no job, so I do not see a way out of this.

For Valentine, news took time to digest By Neil Best Newsday

NEW YORK — Bobby Valentine knew he would have to weigh in at some point Sunday night, given his personal history and his coincidental presence on national television when word arrived of Osama bin Laden’s death. But that point did not come until after he had had time to digest the news and regain his bearings. “Sometimes you get numb,” he said Monday, nine hours after the conclusion of the MetsPhillies game he covered as an ESPN Valentine analyst. “Ten years ago in September, I was numb for a long time. “When I got a text message that said bin Laden was no longer with us, I went numb again. It was a surreal feeling of going back 10 years, hearing ’U-S-A’ being chanted and having a necktie on, thinking I had to talk about it.” Eventually Valentine did, but not until the 11th inning and again at the end of the 14inning game. When producer Tom Archer and Mike McQuade, vice president of event production, initially went to him, he declined. For one, he had been losing his voice from an unrelated ailment. For another, he said he was not prepared emotionally to talk about it. “When I heard it was confirmed, I got choked up,” he said. “Tom Archer asked me how I was doing to get on and I didn’t think I would be presentable.” Said McQuade: “We asked him and he didn’t feel comfortable, and I had no problem with that.” Valentine is closely associated with the aftermath of the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks, when he was manager of the Mets and slept at Shea Stadium for several days helping with relief efforts.


It was a surreal feeling of going back 10 years, hearing ’U-S-A’ being chanted and having a necktie on, thinking I had to talk about it.” — ESPN analyst Bobby Valentine “I tried to do everything I could do, in vain, to bring back survivors as so many other great Americans down at Ground Zero did,” he said. “But I felt totally dejected. There was a feeling of loss and despair.” Ten days after the attacks, he was part of a night that helped lift the city. He led the Mets into the f irst major sports event in New York, when Mike Piazza’s eighthinning home run beat the Braves, 3-2. “I remember the discussion of whether we should play those games in Atlanta or New York and I said that I wasn’t going to Atlanta,” he said. “I think the healing started for me at that time.” Valentine had first touched on that notion on ESPN earlier Monday morning. “That was when the healing began, when we began to get back to a recovery state,” he said. “Maybe tonight has helped so many who have suffered all these 10 years to continue their road to recovery. I hope so.” Earlier, Valentine had urged viewers “to remain diligent and to look around and make sure you know what’s going on around you, because if we let our guard down at this time, it could mean trouble, and we can’t let that happen again.” The brief comments were the best Valentine felt he could do under the circumstances. He said the men in the production truck told him he didn’t look quite ready to go on camera, even after the 14th. “It was an emotional couple of seconds there,” he said. Then he “threw a little water on my face” and got on with it.


Heat want fans to sing anthem By Tim Reynolds Associated Press Sports Writer

M I A M I — For the Miami Heat, one national-anthem performer will not be enough tonight. They want thousands. Breaking from tradition, the Heat will not have anyone brought in to sing “The StarSpangled Banner” before Game 2 of their Eastern Conference playoff series with the Boston Celtics on tonight. Instead, the Heat are encouraging fans to be the singers, making that change less than one day following the announcement that Al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden was killed by U.S. forces in Pakistan.

“It was a powerful moment — for all of us,” Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said of Sunday night’s news that captivated the nation. The Heat have honored soldiers returning from Iraq and Afghanistan at home games for several seasons, and say Tuesday’s game will include an enhanced military tribute. Members of the armed services will unfurl the 50-foot American flag at center court during the anthem, a job typically handled by Heat employees. U.S. Army Staff Sgt. Henry Hernandez, along with his wife Julie and their children Alexa and Matthew, will be honored before the game, part of the “Home Strong” pro-

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Fans at the Mets-Phillies game began chanting “U-S-A! U-S-A!” as the news of Osama bin Laden’s death spread through Citizens Bank Park on Sunday night. “I heard the chants and they were great,” Mets right-hander R.A. Dickey said after New York beat Philadelphia, 2-1 in 14 innings. “It was a pretty neat thing. It was emotional. Hopefully this brings some closure, but it’s still not over.” People could be spotted all over the ballpark checking their phones as news that the United States had killed the mastermind behind the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks on the Twin Towers in New York and the Pentagon in Washington was breaking. The “U-S-A!” chants started in the top of the ninth inning of the game and picked up in intensity throughout the inning. “It was a big night for us and a big win for America,” Mets manager Terry Collins said. Mets starting pitcher Chris Young pitched seven scoreless innings, allowing two hits and striking out seven, on a memorable night for him. “Probably a night I will never forget,” Young said. “I was in the training room when I heard the announcement. I got chills hearing that crowd. It’s a historic night and a great victory for the United States.”

WASHINGTON — The Washington Nationals gave away tickets on Monday night to service members on Military Appreciation Night — an event announced to the public a week ago. Active or retired military personnel can get up to four free tickets for Monday’s game at Nationals Park against the San Francisco Giants. The Nationals are wearing what they call “patriotic” uniforms — blue jerseys with a stars-and-stripes curly “W” on the chest — for the first time. The team says planning for Monday’s festivities began in the offseason. It’s a coincidence the celebration of the military came the day after President Barack Obama said terrorist leader Osama bin Laden was killed by U.S. forces in Pakistan.

It was just really neat.” Riley has long had a saying, that sports are merely “the toy department of human affairs.” Those words resonated deeply within Spoelstra on Sunday night. “What we do has no ramifications on the real world,” Spoelstra said. “That is real. It’s something else that that was able to be accomplished. We’re trying to focus on what we do, but it is just a game and it is the toy department. It was uplifting to f ind out that news.”

Hundreds of soldiers have been recognized in brief pregame ceremonies at midcourt just before tip-off of every Miami home game since the program was born. Celtics coach Doc Rivers said he was watching film Sunday night when he learned of bin Laden’s death. Like Spoelstra, he said he appreciated being allowed to put basketball in some sort of perspective for a moment. “It was phenomenal,” Rivers said. “It was awesome. It actually put things in their proper place. When you’re watching film, you’re cussing to yourself, you’re writing bad words down on a piece of
