KANSAS UNIVERSITY CHANCELLOR BERNADETTE GRAY-LITTLE speaks to students Thursday at Lawrence High School as part of the Can We Talk? mentoring initiative. The chancellor spoke about growing up in the segregated South in the 1950s.
KU leader shares life experiences as part of mentoring program By Andy Hyland email@example.com
Kansas University Chancellor Bernadette Gray-Little talked Thursday about her experiences growing up under segregation, and becoming the first female and first black faculty member at a university that she was ineligible to attend as a student coming out of high school. “Unless you have direct experience with it, it would be hard to appreciate the way things were,” she said of grow-
ing up in the South in the 1950s. She shared her story with Lawrence high school and junior high students who are in the Can We Talk? program, which was originally designed for young black men and focuses on building relationships and helping students achieve their full potential. It has since expanded to include black women and students from other races. Gray-Little’s family was not well off financially, she said. Her mother and father both worked. They never went hungry, but she remembered her
family having to think about how they would find their next meal. She was one of eight children in her family in the small, segregated town of Washington, N.C. Her mother also raised two other children: one cousin and one grandchild. Gray-Little attended segregated schools. She remembers buildings where blacks had to enter by walking up the fire escape instead of going through the front door. Please see CHANCELLOR, page 2A
Upcoming banquet Students and their supporters participating in the Can We Talk? program in the Lawrence school district will gather for a banquet next week at Alvamar Country Club, 1800 Crossgate Drive. More than 200 people are expected to attend the invitation-only event, set for 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Wednesday.
City to consider code change to allow artificial turf at some sites By Chad Lawhorn firstname.lastname@example.org
Artificial turf — soon you may no longer have to be a jock to call it home. City Hall leaders are being presented with a proposal that would give businesses and apartment complexes the option of using artificial turf to meet city landscaping requirements rather than traditional grass.
In fact, developers with the new Tuckaway at Frontier apartment complex in west Lawrence already have started to install the synthetic turf, mistakenly thinking it was legal in the city code. Now, instead of removing the artificial turf, they’re asking planners to look at the potential benefits and change the city’s development regulations. Please see TURF, page 2A

W A S H I N G T O N — The Americans who raided Osama bin Laden’s lair met far less resistance than the Obama administration described in the aftermath. The commandos encountered gunshots from only one man, whom they quickly killed, before sweeping the house and shooting others, who were unarmed, a senior defense official said in the latest account. In Thursday’s revised telling, the Navy SEALs mounted a precision, floor-by-floor operation to find the al-Qaida leader and his protectors — but without the prolonged and intense firefight that officials had described for several days. By any measure, the raid was fraught with risk, sensationally bold and a historic success. U.S. officials said some of the first information gleaned from the scene indicated that last year al-Qaida was considering attacking U.S. trains on the 10th anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks. The officials said they had no recent intelligence indicating such a plot was active. Please see BIN LADEN, page 6A
KU researchers get $5.6 million from Ag Dept. By Andy Hyland email@example.com
A Kansas University research team has been awarded $5.6 million from the U.S. Department of Agriculture to find a more environmentally friendly way to develop chemicals used in many everyday products. Bala Subramaniam is a KU distinguished professor of chemical and petroleum engineering and the director of the Center for Environmentally Beneficial Catalysis at KU. He led the research team that received one of seven grants awarded by the USDA from about 300 applications. Subramaniam KU will partner with Archer Daniels Midland, headquartered in Decatur, Ill., as part of the project. KU and ADM will invest $1.4 million in matching funds for the grant. The grants were announced as part of an effort to advance clean energy efforts and as a way to reduce dependence on foreign oil. Please see RESEARCH, page 2A

DEATHS S HIRLEY ANNE LANG Mass of Christian burial for Shirley Anne Lang, 76, Overbrook, will be at 11 a.m. Wednesday at St. Patrick’s Catholic Church in Scranton, with the Rev. Anthony Ouellette as celebrant. Private family inurnment will take place in Rock Creek Lang Cemetery. Mrs. Lang died Thursday, May 5, 2011, at her home. She was born July 8, 1934, in Kansas City, Kan., the daughter of Leonard and Mildred Overcash Jones. She attended local Catholic schools and Ward High School. Mrs. Lang was a homemaker. She was an active member of the St. Francis Catholic Church for many years. She belonged to the Altar Society, taught catechism and drove the Sunday school bus. She also belonged to Overbrook T.O.P.S. Club and Flower Club. She enjoyed taking bus trips and gardening and her yard. She worked at the sale barn, where she sold her pies. She married Robert A. Lang on July 12, 1952. He preceded her in death on Aug. 20, 2006.
She was also preceded in death by her parents. Survivors include five sons, Larry Lang and wife Nancy, Harold Lang and wife Mary, Leo Lang and wife Karen, and John Lang and wife Linda, all of Overbrook, and Tom Lang and wife Diane, Michigan Valley; two daughters, Leanne Arnold and husband Ron, Lawrence, and Roberta Peterson and husband Andy, Overbrook; two brothers, Leonard Jones Jr. and wife Sharon, Kansas City, Kan., and Roger Jones and wife Barb, Kansas City, Mo.; three sisters, Marion Airington, Gladstone, Mo., Florence Wilburn and husband Fred, North Kansas City, Mo., and Phyllis Carrico and husband Ernie, Blue Springs, Mo.; 20 grandchildren; and 23 greatgrandchildren. The family will receive friends from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. Tuesday at GreenwoodRoberts Funeral Home, 730 Western Height Drive, Overbrook, where a rosary will be recited at 7:30 p.m. The family suggests memorials to Grace Hospice, Breast Cancer Research and/or Rock Creek Cemetery Fence Fund, sent in care of the funeral home, P.O. Box 268, Overbrook, KS 66524. Email condolences may be left at Lamb-Roberts.com.

Subramaniam said many chemicals necessary for products we use every day — plastics, laundry detergents and bathroom cleaners — are made in a process that uses petroleum. The new research will look for ways the same chemicals can be made using bio-based products such as nonfood crops and agricultural leftovers. “This is the only sustainable option for making these chemical products in the long term,” Subramaniam said. Today, about 90 percent of the world’s petroleum goes toward fuel and about 10 percent toward making these kinds of chemicals, he said. But that process is financially lucrative — the 10 percent of crude oil devoted toward chemicals can bring 60 to 70 percent of the profits, he said. That means that if the research is successful in even a few of the targeted chemicals, it could mean new revenue streams are opened for biorefining companies, he said. As with any grant, the money means KU will be able to hire more researchers and

more postdoctoral fellows, but Subramaniam said this research could have additional significant impacts on the rural Kansas economy. It gets expensive fast to transport biomass over long distances, so the potential exists in Kansas to create a new kind of industry around this sort of chemical refining process, Subramaniam said. “We could be a powerhouse with the potential for green manufacturing,” said Julie Goonewardene, KU’s associate vice chancellor for innovation and entrepreneurship. She also said the partnership with ADM is another strong indication that the research holds the potential for success. Companies try to align themselves with the very best faculty in the f ield, Goonewardene said. “With Bala, they’re basically saying: ‘We want access to him and the research that he’s doing,’” she said. And if they would like the opportunity to license the technologies later, they will have an opportunity to do so, along with any other potentially interested companies, she said. — Higher education reporter Andy Hyland can be reached at 832-6388.

Emporia State president announces resignation Michael R. Lane, president of Emporia State University, has announced his intention to step down from that position effective June 30. In a message to faculty and staff, Lane said the decision was related to his decision to interview for the presidency at Millikin University in Decatur, Ill., over fall break last year. “The visit helped (Lane’s wife) Peggy and I realize how much we enjoyed and appreciated the very student-focused environment at ESU as well as the supportive campus and community.

“It looks great,” said Paul Werner, a Lawrence architect working on the Tuckaway project, 546 Frontier Road, which is on the former site of the Boardwalk Apartments. “It needs no water. You don’t have to mow it, you don’t have to fertilize it, it has a long life. It is a real product, and we think it can be a viable alternative.” Ultimately, city commissioners will be the judge of that. Lawrence-Douglas County Planning Commissioners are expected to debate the development code change in June, and city commissioners would tackle the subject later in the summer — perhaps at about the time everybody has become thoroughly tired of mowing grass. Scott McCullough, the city’s planning director, said his staff has quite a few questions to answer before then. McCullough said his staff will study how well the product allows water to drain, what the city’s authority would be to require replacement of the product if it gets damaged or discolored, and whether other communities have allowed the product. “Really, I’m not sure what the implications would be to the community if we allowed it,” McCullough said. “That’s one of the things we’ll have to study.” At least one other project in town has synthetic turf. The Oread hotel, 1200 Oread Ave., uses the product in small quantities near its entrances. Lawrence businessman Thomas Fritzel was a developer of that project and also is a developer of the apartments. Werner said Fritzel has become sold on the green aspects of artificial turf and also its cost benefits. Werner estimated artificial turf is more than five times as expensive to install than sod — it requires extensive grading and an underground drainage system — but he believes it will pay for itself in about five years because of the much lower maintenance costs. Frank Male, an owner of Lawrence Landscape, said he thinks some homeowners might consider artificial turf in certain situations. He said he’s had clients consider it for small backyards that have too much shade to feasibly grow grass. The proposed changes to city code won’t affect residential lawns — only projects that require a site plan. But McCullough said that a quick review of the residential regulations regarding lawns doesn’t make clear whether the product currently is allowed. “That’s probably a question we’ll have to answer,” he said. Male said his company likely won’t oppose the proposed changes to city code. Instead, he said, the company may learn to install the product, saying he could see how it could be a benefit in high-traffic areas where grass gets trampled to death. “We’re always looking for opportunities,” Male said. “Maybe we’ll jump on the bandwagon.” That’s not to say, though, that Male thinks it is going to be a real big wagon. “I guess it all depends on what you want,” Male said. “There is nothing quite like going out with your puppy dog or your child and rolling around in the yard. I’m pretty sure grass is not going out of business anytime soon.”
“It was understood that the way to leave that setting was through education,” she said, adding that her mother frequently aided and encouraged her to do well. So she — and many of her siblings — went on to obtain advanced degrees. Gray-Little settled on a doctorate in psychology. She went from a bachelor’s degree to her Ph.D. in just four years and became an assistant professor of psychology at the University of North-Carolina at Chapel Hill at the age of 25. There, she became department chair, a dean, then provost before being recruited to
become the chancellor at KU. Willie Amison, a former KU football player and a former LHS assistant principal, is the executive director of the Can We Talk? program. He said that Gray-Little served as an excellent role model for students. “Everybody has a different path in getting there,” Amison said. “It’s ‘go after it’ and ‘go get it.’” Students said the chancellor’s story resonated with them. “It was interesting,” said Henry Fritzel, a Free State High School student. “It definitely motivated me to do more, to try to accomplish everything.” — Higher education reporter Andy Hyland can be reached at 832-6388.

CHANCELLOR’S ANSWERS When Kansas University Chancellor Bernadette GrayLittle visited Lawrence High School on Thursday, students and teachers asked her questions on a variety of topics:
Facing discrimination When she became one of the first black professors at the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill — and the first in the psychology department — Gray-Little was treated well by faculty and staff. If anything, they asked her to do too much, in the interest of creating a more diverse environment. She recalled a couple of instances when she found racial slurs written on her chalkboard, and heard them occasionally. “It certainly wasn’t the students in my class,” she said. “To my face, anyway.” Advice for students The chancellor offered tidbits of advice for the young students to get ahead in life. Be ready, be prepared, she told them, for when the opportunity presents itself.
“You need to be sure of what you’re doing and not let other people put that down,” she said. If you need money for school, she said, complete the federal form that qualifies you for federal aid. And look outside the institution for scholarships. “Be on it. Be active,” she said. “Look for resources that you can use.”
Lawrence’s biggest elementary school is about to get a new principal. Monday night, members of the Lawrence school board will consider approving the hiring of G. Keith Wilson as principal of the Lawrence Virtual School, which serves students statewide from the former Centennial School, 2145 La. Wilson most recently has worked as an educational consultant, after having worked as K-12 principal of Wichita’s Riverside Academy in 200910. He’s also a former principal of Charles Curtis Middle School, Jardine Diversified Leadership and Technology Academy, and Jardine Junior Academy, all in Wichita. Rick Doll, superintendent of the Lawrence school district, lauded Wilson’s “school-business perspective” and his record for improving student achieve-

Other jobs she’s had Gray-Little recalled that her very first job was in the first grade, when she was in charge of making sure a classmate — who had a penchant for wandering off — made it home. In college, she worked as a telephone operator in the summers, before that she had been a live-in maid and did work in her university’s psychology department, she said. Her parents weren’t able to contribute to her college education, so she had to pay for it with loans, scholarships and by working, she said.

GOP won’t push Medicare vouchers The GOP plan to replace Medicare with vouchers will have to wait, party leaders acknowledged Thursday as lawmakers and the White House bowed to political realities in pursuing a deal to allow more government borrowing in exchange for big spending cuts. Both sides hinted at movement and Vice President Joe Biden reported progress from an initial negotiating session. Spending cuts and increasing the amount of money the government can keep borrowing to pay its bills are “practically and politically connected,” Biden said at the start of budget meetings with lawmakers at Blair House, the guest residence across Pennsylvania Avenue from the White House. The House Republican whose committee oversees Medicare said he’s open to other approaches besides the voucher plan that recently passed the House after a contentious debate that appears to have hurt the party with older voters. Republicans got an earful from their constituents on Medicare during a recent congressional recess.
Brownback stands by plan for higher ed Governor also discusses KPERS, regents, unions By Scott Rothschild email@example.com

TOPEKA — Gov. Sam Brownback said Thursday he is sticking by his position to provide $15 million in higher education grants through one of his Cabinet agencies rather than the Kansas Board of Regents. The proposal would provide $5 million each to Kansas Uni-
funding to go through Commerce so that the program will focus on job creation.
versity, Kansas State and Wichita State. The funding would go toward cancer, animal health and aviation research and be administered Brownback by the Kansas Department of Commerce. The House has sided with Brownback on this issue, while the Senate has approved a budget that would place the funding with the regents, which oversees higher education. The House and Senate are negotiating on that and numerous other budget differences. Brownback said he wants the
KPERS compromise? In a short interview after a National Day of Prayer ceremony, Brownback also spoke in favor of a recent legislative compromise on long-term funding problems with the Kansas Public Employees Retirement System. “It sounds like a reasonable proposal. It deals with the current pool and then it gives us the time necessary, I think, to devise a good proposal on how we move forward with new state employees,” he said. The proposal would create a commission to study whether
the state should start a 401(k)style retirement plan and make a recommendation next year. It also commits the state to increase contributions to KPERS and would require public employees to choose between paying more into the system or having their benefits reduced.

Rise in layoffs, gas prices cloud economy
Democratic Party leader says schools being cut too much
An enlightening experience
A renewed rise in layoffs is the latest sign that higher fuel prices may be slowing the economy. A 23 percent spike in applications for unemployment benefits over the past month suggests that hiring may look weaker when the government issues the April jobs report today. Oil prices plummeted Thursday to settle below $100 a barrel for the first time since mid-March. The decline follows a turbulent stretch in which oil rose 35 percent from mid-February through the end of April. Still, the plunge in oil may be enough only to keep pump prices from reaching a national average of $4 per gallon Most analysts agree the economy has strengthened enough to keep growing this year. But gas prices have risen for 44 straight days. Consumers are spending more to fill the tanks, leaving them with less to spend elsewhere. As a result, many companies are feeling less certain about the economy’s health and could delay hiring plans.

Jacob, Isabella top baby-name list Elvis has left the list. Ending a run that started in 1955, Elvis did not make the list of 1,000 most popular baby names compiled by the Social Security Administration. The name never topped the charts, peaking at No. 312 in 1957 and making a slight comeback after Elvis Presley died in 1977. But The King’s first name was in the top 1,000 for 55 straight years, something that cannot be said for, say, Barack, which has never cracked the list. “I was all shook up,” Social Security Commissioner Michael Astrue said. “It’s been a tradition tracking his ups and downs, and to see him drop off the top 1,000, I have to be honest, we took that very hard at Social Security.” Jacob continued a 12-year run as the most popular name for boys in 2010, according to the list released Thursday. Isabella was the most popular name for girls for a second year at the top. Nearly 22,000 boys were named Jacob in 2010, followed by Ethan, Michael, Jayden and William. Nearly 23,000 girls were named Isabella, followed by Sophia, Emma, Olivia and Ava.

Floodwaters threaten Mud Island Mud Island, which juts into the Mississippi, pays homage to the mighty river with an elaborate scale model of it, a museum about its history, and a paddlewheel steamboat that looks like something straight out of “Huckleberry Finn.” But now Mud Island is getting too much of the Mississippi. Rising waters practically lapped at the back porches of some of the island’s expensive houses Thursday, and homeowners weighed whether to stay or go. Up and down Ol’ Man River, from Illinois to Louisiana, thousands faced the same decision as high water kept on rolling down the Mississippi and its tributaries, threatening to swamp communities over the next week or two. The flooding is already breaking high-water records that have stood since the 1930s. Mud Island, a three-mile-long strip of land that is part of Memphis, has about 1,500 homes and businesses and 6,000 mostly well-off residents, many of them living in gleaming, 20-year-old houses with wide river views and traditional Southern touches such as columns, porches and bay windows.
Jeannine Hendrix’s fifthgrade class had more than a little spark Thursday morning. In fact, with the help of a handcrank generator, the students were creating enough electricity to power a light bulb. The lesson was hard work but an easy way to demonstrate what it takes to produce the energy needed for daily life.
“So could you imagine having to do this to keep the lights on in your room?” Laura Lutz asked the class as students took turns spinning the generator. Lutz, an account manager at Westar Energy, was visiting the Woodlawn School class

T OPEKA — State Democratic Party Chairwoman Joan Wagnon on Thursday urged Kansans to contact their legislators and tell them to properly fund schools. “Governor Brownback and the House leadership are shortchanging our schools and it’s time to stop,” Wagnon said at a news conference. Brownback, a Republican, and the Republican-dominated Legislature have proposed cuts to schools and other areas, saying they are required to balance the budget without raising taxes. LEGISLATURE Under Brownback’s budget proposal, base state aid to schools would fall to $3,780 per student, the lowest amount since the 1990s. A House budget plan would decrease that amount even more. Before the Great Recession kicked in, base state aid was $4,400 per student. Wagnon, a former secretary of revenue and legislator, said the Legislature should devise a longterm strategy to cut some business tax credits and get rid of some sales tax exemptions. “We can’t just keep cutting taxes and cutting schools,” she said. — Statehouse reporter Scott Rothschild can be reached at 785-423-0668.

Last World War I combat veteran dies The last known combat veteran of World War I was defiant of the tolls of time, a centenarian who swam in the sea, twirled across dance floors, and Billings published his first book at 108. He also refused to submit to his place in history, becoming a pacifist who wouldn’t march in parades commemorating wars like the one that made him famous.

Why did the U.S. military choose Geronimo as the code name for Osama bin Laden? It seems like it would be offensive to Native Americans.
When asked, The White House referred questions on the matter to the Defense Department, which said no disrespect was meant to Native Americans. The department wouldn’t elaborate on the use of Geronimo’s name but said code names typically are chosen randomly and allow those working on a mission to communicate without divulging information to adversaries.

Sampler Festival celebrates Kansas By Shawn Linenberger email@example.com
Visitors to this weekend’s Kansas Sampler Festival in Leavenworth have the opportunity to see exhibits and try foods and beverages from across the state. Ray Miller Park is starting to take the shape of a festival. “It’s starting to look bright and pretty with the bright-colored tents popping up,” said Keyta Kelly, director for the festival in Leavenworth. This year, the festival’s second in Leavenworth, will feature tents showcasing representatives from cities and counties of various regions in the state, as well as food offerings from across Kansas. Music, dance and comedic entertainment and programs involving people in period dress are planned. And a wine- and beer-tasting tent will be open. Also planned, Kelly said, are a stage with children’s entertainment, old-fashioned games and face paint-
TOPEKA — About 100 people, including Gov. Sam Brownback, gathered Thursday in the Capitol for the National Day of Prayer. Brownback, who was lauded by speakers for his anti-abortion stance, told the receptive crowd, “I believe in the power of prayer. I use it often myself.” He talked about Kansas’ deep religious roots and then prayed, asking God to “help us to love everyone, every person,
• Lawrence police are investigating an alleged theft of $1,540 from a 39-year-old Lawrence man alleged to have occurred between April 5 and April 13 from a unit in the Easy Living Mobile Home Park, 3323 Iowa. • A 23-year-old female Kansas University student reported to police that her $1,500 black onyx ring with diamonds was taken between noon April 24 and 2 p.m. April 27. The report does not list a location of the alleged theft. • A employee of Aaron’s rental business at 1601 W. 23rd St. reported to police that someone had stolen a Hewlett Packard laptop computer valued at $1,439 from the store between 1:55 p.m. and 6:25 p.m. Tuesday. • Lawrence police arrested three Topeka men Thursday morning as suspects in at least two vehicle burglaries in southwestern Lawrence. Kim Murphree, police spokeswoman, said a neighbor in the Aberdeen Apartments complex, 2300 Wakarusa Drive, noticed suspicious activity in the parking lot about 4:45 a.m., and offi-

cers later arrested the three men. According to court records, Douglas County prosecutors Thursday filed charges of burglary of a vehicle and conspiracy to commit burglary against Nathaniel A. Cisneros, 19, and Damien S. Schaffer and Dalton S. Slavens, both 18. Prosecutors accuse the men of burglarizing one vehicle and participating in a scheme to drive around various locations looking for unlocked cars to burglarize and checking for unlocked cars at the apartment complex. Murphree said the men are suspected of committing at least two burglaries in the area, but officers have recovered items and expect to connect the men to other burglaries. Cisneros was released from jail Thursday afternoon after posting $4,500 bond and given notice to appear in court May 19. Schaffer and Slavens appeared in court Thursday afternoon, where a judge set bond at $4,000 for each of defendant. The Journal-World does not print accounts of all police reports filed. The newspaper generally reports: • Burglaries, only with a loss of $1,000 or more, unless there are unusual circumstances. To protect victims, we generally don’t identify them by name. • The names and circumstances of people arrested, only after they are charged. • Assaults and batteries, only if major injuries are reported. • Holdups and robberies.

ing celebrating the sesquicentennial. About 8,500 people visited the festival in 2010, making it the most-attended Kansas Sampler Festival since the annual event started in 1991 near Inman. In 2012 and 2013, the festival will take place in the southwest Kansas community of Liberal. With Mother’s Day being Sunday, the first 500 mothers at the festival each will receive a $2 coupon for a food or drink item or an item at the Carroll Mansion Herb Market area at the festival. The annual market normally takes place at the Leavenworth mansion but has been moved to the festival in an effort to boost attendance for both the market and the festival. “We think there’s no better plan than to bring your mom here for Mother’s Day,” Kelly said.

toast and turn on the computer,” Lutz told the class. “We do kind of take it for granted. And we have to remember there is a lot that goes into producing the electricity that makes our lives comfortable and convenient.” By the end of the class, she had students vowing to make changes. “I learned to unplug the phone charger when you are not using it and to unplug the TV or computer,” Abby Middleton said. “I’m not going to play video games as much,” Michael Farmer said. “Take shorter showers,” Madison Smith said. Those are the points that Lutz wants the students to take home. “We firmly believe if you can establish good energysaving benefits now, those behaviors will carry through for a lifetime,” Lutz said. The big take-home point for the students was how much more energy (or in their case how much harder they had to turn the hand-crank generator) it takes to power a incandescent light bulb over a compact fluorescent one. “The original bulbs take more energy, the curly Q light bulbs take 75 percent less and the LEDs don’t take much energy at all,” Abby said. At the end of class, Lutz had to make one important clarification: The energy produced at Westar’s power plant in Lawrence doesn’t come from an army of workers furiously turning hand-crank generators. — Reporter Christine Metz can be reached at 832-6352.
LAWRENCE • STATE Man accidentally shoots himself in head TONGANOXIE — A 23-year-old rural Tonganoxie man suffered a self-inflicted gunshot wound while shooting off his handgun Wednesday night in his backyard. He was taken to an area hospital with a potentially lifethreatening injury, Leavenworth County Sheriff’s reports said. The man drank several beers with his girlfriend at his home about 3 1/2 miles east of Tonganoxie. As she took a shower, he went outside, reports said. Two other residents of the home heard three gunshots, but they weren’t alarmed, reports said, because the man regularly fires his .45-caliber handgun in the backyard at night.

Abolishing the regents Asked if he supported a proposed constitutional amendment to abolish the regents and State Board of Education, Brownback said he hadn’t thought about it. The measure was proposed by House Speaker Mike O’Neal, R-Hutchinson, and will likely be debated next year. Under the plan, the governor would appoint a Cabinet-level secretary to oversee education.

get it through the legislative process,” he said. The issue was at the center of a tense House-Senate conference committee meeting earlier Thursday. Legislators say they need to pass a bill setting up a way for the state to repay to the federal government $171 million in loans made last year to cover benefits for unemployed Kansans. But House Republicans, led by Rep. Anthony Brown, of Eudora, want to add to that measure to another bill that would prohibit unions from using funds deducted from members’ paychecks for campaign purposes. The Senate’s lead negotiator on the unemployment issue, Susan Wagle, R-Wichita, also supports the antiunion bill, but said she doubted it would pass in the Senate. Brown replied that the House “was prepared to walk away” from the underlying bill that deals with paying off the unemployment insurance loan. Wagle said that would result in a massive tax increase for businesses and federal penalties. “We’re going to have to find a way to solve the family feud,” she said.

responded, “The ball is in your court. We’re waiting on your chamber.” Wagle tersely replied, “We’re adjourned.” The so-called paycheck protection bill that Brown wants was at the center of controversy earlier in the legislative session. Supporters of the bill say it will protect workers from being forced to contribute to candidates they don’t support. Critics of the bill say paycheck deductions for political purposes are voluntary. Democrats say the measure is a way for Republicans to hinder union fundraising. When the House approved the measure in February, several union members shouted from the public House gallery, urging legislators to vote against the bill. They were escorted out, and Speaker O’Neal barred one union official from the gallery for the rest of the session. Republican House leaders also said several union members said obscenities to female legislators and staff members prior to the vote. But union members vehemently denied the allegation.

Bin Laden CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1A
The compound raid netted a man who had been on the run for nearly a decade after his terrorist organization pulled off the devastating attacks of Sept. 11, 2001. Even so, in the administration’s haste to satisfy the world’s hunger for details and eager to make the most of the moment, officials told a tale tarnished by discrepancies and apparent exaggeration. Whether that matters to most Americans, gratified if not joyful that bin Laden is dead, is an open question. Republican House Speaker John Boehner, for one, shrugged off the backtracking to focus on the big picture: “I had a conversation with the president, and the president outlined to me the series of actions that occurred on Sunday evening. I have no doubt that Osama bin Laden is dead.” The senior defense official spoke to The Associated Press anonymously because he was not authorized to speak on the record. He said the sole bin Laden shooter in the Pakistan compound was killed in the early minutes of the commando operation, the latest of the details becoming clearer now that the Navy SEAL assault team has fully briefed officials. As the raiders moved into the compound from helicopters, they were fired on by bin Laden’s courier, Abu Ahmed al-Kuwaiti, who was in the guesthouse, the official said. The SEALs returned fire, and the courier was killed, along with a woman with him. The official said she was hit in the crossfire. The Americans were never fired on again as they encountered and killed a man on the first floor of the main building and then bin Laden’s son on a staircase, before arriving at bin Laden’s room, the official said, revising an earlier account that the son was in the room with his father. Officials have said bin Laden was killed, shot in the chest and then the head, after he appeared to be lunging for a weapon. White House and Defense Department and CIA officials through the week have offered varying and foggy versions of the operation, though the dominant focus was on a firefight that officials said consumed most of the 40 minutes on the ground after midnight Monday morning in Pakistan, Sunday in Washington. “There were many other people who were armed ... in the compound,” White House spokesman Jay Carney said Tuesday when asked if bin Laden was armed. “There was a firefight. We expected a great deal of resistance and were met with a great deal of resistance.” “For most of the period there, there was a firefight,” a senior defense official told Pentagon reporters in a briefing Monday. White House counterterrorism adviser John Brennan originally suggested bin Laden was among those who was armed. “He was engaged in a firefight with those that entered the area of the house he was in,” Brennan said Monday, before the administration
Info from raid shows interest in U.S. trains WASHINGTON — Some of the first information gleaned from Osama bin Laden’s compound indicates al-Qaida considered attacking U.S. trains on the upcoming anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks. But counterterrorism officials say they believe the planning never got beyond the initial phase and have no recent intelligence pointing to an active plot for such an attack. As of February 2010, the terror organization was considering plans to attack the U.S. on the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks. One idea outlined in handwritten notes was to tamper with an unspecified U.S. rail track so that a train would fall off the track at a valley or a bridge, according to a joint FBI and Homeland Security bulletin sent to law enforcement officials around the country Thursday. The al-Qaida planners noted that if they attacked a train by tilting it, the plan would only succeed once because the tilting would be spotted the next time. The warning, obtained by The Associated Press, was marked for “official use only.”
announced bin Laden actually was unarmed although there were weapons in his room. The success of the bin Laden raid gave the White House a spectacular story to offer without any need to dress it up. The revelation on Thursday that the raid scooped up valuable intelligence was another positive note. A Homeland Security intelligence warning sent to law enforcement officials around the country said that as of February 2010, al-Qaida was considering tampering with an unspecified U.S. rail track so that a train would fall off at a valley or a bridge. Some of the inconsistencies in the U.S. accounts seemed designed to score extra propaganda points. Brennan, for one, using information that turned out to be flawed, portrayed bin Laden as a man “living in an area that is far removed from the front, hiding behind women who were put in front of him as a shield.” Officials soon dropped the contention that bin Laden tried to hide behind women. They said what really happened is that bin Laden’s wife rushed the SEALs when they entered the room. They injured her with a shot in her calf.
Cans for the Community breaks donation record Thousands of cans were donated to Cans for the Community during April. The amount wasn’t enough to meet the 5,000 pound goal that the nonprofit had set in honor of Earth Day. But it was enough to establish a record for the organization, which collects aluminum cans to raise money for charities. In all, 4,368 pounds were collected, a significant jump from the previous record of 4,200 pounds. The group received a boost from the employees of Allen Press who each brought in a pound of cans. The nonprofit also reached its goal of raising $3,000 from the proceeds of recycling the cans. The money is being donated to three local organizations: New York School, Douglas County CASA and Lawrence Interdenominational Nutrition Kitchen. Cans for Community volunteer Linda Klinker hasn’t given up hope that one of these months the nonprofit will reach the 5,000 pound goal.

Family displaced by kitchen fire By George Diepenbrock firstname.lastname@example.org
A kitchen fire Wednesday evening that caused $76,000 in damage to a two-story duplex in northwest Lawrence has displaced a family living there, fire officials said Thursday morning. The fire at 411 John Doy Court, which is off Peterson Road, was accidental and caused by inattentive cooking, said Eve Tolefree, Lawrence-Douglas County Fire Medical division chief. Takisha Clark spent most of Thursday trying to arrange for housing and figure out how to replace several household items after nearly everything in her kitchen was damaged. “That stuff can be replaced,” Clark said. “We’re thankful because we made it out safely.” Quail Run School staff members put out a call to parents Thursday morning to help Clark’s family with donations. Her three sons are in the sixth, third and first grades at Quail Run. An account for donations at U.S. Bank
branches in Lawrence is set up in Takisha Clark’s name. Firefighters were called to the townhouse at 6:42 p.m. Everyone inside had made it out of the duplex, and crews had the fire under control at 7:07 p.m., Tolefree said. No one was injured. Jane Blocher, executive director of the Douglas County chapter of the American Red Cross, said the agency provided temporary lodging through Saturday for Clark’s family and gave the family a cash allowance for food and clothing. Clark said Thursday the
family was still trying to determine how many of the items that were damaged by smoke, such as their clothing, could be salvaged. She said they had some offers for housing beyond the hotel room provided by the Red Cross through Saturday. The fire was not expected to displace a resident of the other unit in the duplex, Blocher said. According to Douglas County records, the duplex is valued at $132,000. — Reporter George Diepenbrock can be reached at 832-7144. Follow him at Twitter.com/gdiepenbrock.

Obama in N.Y.: ‘We will never forget’ By Ben Feller
When we say we will never forget, we mean NEW YORK — Solemnly hon- what we say.” Associated Press Writer
oring victims of the Sept. 11 terror attacks, President Barack Obama hugged survivors, thanked the heroes of one of the nation’s darkest days and declared Thursday that the killing of Osama bin Laden after all these years was an American message to the world: “When we say we will never forget, we mean what we say.” On a brilliant blue-sky day, one of reflection more than celebration, Obama offered New Yorkers a moment of their own. Standing at the gritty construction site of ground zero, where the towers fell and a memorial now rises, the president laid a wreath of red, white and blue flowers for the nearly 3,000 who died as he marked a turning point for the nation and this city of steely resilience. For Obama, the day was about the importance of
— President Barack Obama being in New York in the aftermath of the successful raid to find and kill bin Laden, the al-Qaida leader. Obama addressed families who have watched and wondered for nearly a decade whether the government would track down its most infamous enemy. On this special ground, Obama never mentioned bin Laden’s name. Still, this was where the terrorist inflicted his greatest damage on a similarly sunny day in 2001 when hijacked airliners were crashed into the World Trade Center. Nearly 200 other people died when a third airliner hit the Pentagon — Vice President Joe Biden led a ceremony there on Thursday, and Bush Defense
Families of missing tornado victims waiting for answers By Eric Tucker and Jay Reeves Associated Press Writers
TUSCALOOSA, ALA. — Where is Johnnie Brown’s sister? Or the friend Billie Sue Hall talked to every day? A week after tornadoes ripped neighborhoods to shreds across the South, there still are no answers. It’s unclear how many people are missing across the seven states where 329 deaths have been reported. There are 25 unaccounted for in Tuscaloosa alone, the mayor says, but that number could be off because of the chaos the storm left behind. Cadaver dog teams across the region are scouring the debris to uncover whatever tragedies may remain, and even bad news would be comforting to anguished families. Tracy Sargent’s dog team took just minutes to do what humans searching for hours could not: Locate the body of a University of Alabama student in a maze of twisted trees and debris. The young man’s father was there when the body was found in Tuscaloosa this week. “(The father) went over there and bent over and touched his son and started talking to him,” Sargent said. “And he hugged him, started crying, and told him that he loved him and that he would miss him.” Brown doesn’t know if that sort of moment awaits him. A picture of his sister, Latoya, smiling in an elegant orange dress, is posted on a wall of the Tuscaloosa shelter where he is staying. “Missing,” the paper says. “When I think about it, man, I just want to be by myself. I don’t want nobody talking to me, nothing,” the 20-year-old said, his voice barely audible. Brown said his 21-year-old sister had been visiting friends at Rosedale Apartments the day the tornado hit. Police are looking for her, and rescue crews who searched the complex Wednesday did not find
Secretary Donald Rumsfeld attended — and others were killed when yet a fourth plane crashed in Pennsylvania. Enthusiastic, emotional New Yorkers waited on streets to see the president, but there were few displays like the more raucous exuberance of a few days earlier. There were happy faces, shouts of “USA! USA!” and flags waved in the crowd, but there also was heavy security and most people were cordoned off blocks from where the president could be seen. Referring to the daring U.S. raid to take down bin Laden in Pakistan, Obama said of all those who died on Sept. 11: “It says we keep them in our hearts. We haven’t forgotten.” Days after the attacks, President George W. Bush stood here with firefighters and a bullhorn. There was a different feel a decade later as another president paid his respects. Obama met with f iref ighters, then police, before having a solemn moment at ground zero and
Part of I-70 closed after nail spill The westbound lanes of Interstate 70 at the Kansas River Bridge were shut down Thursday morning after a pallet of nails fell off a truck bed and spilled onto the highway. Kansas Turnpike Authority spokeswoman Lisa Callahan said the accident happened at 6:05 a.m. just east of mile post 202. Callahan said at least four cars received flat tires before crews could close the highway to clear the scene. I-70 reopened just before 9 a.m. No one was injured.

He still tries calling Latoya’s cell phone, but gets agitated every time as it goes straight to voice mail. Efforts to pin down the number of missing have been complicated by factors including multiple reports of the same missing person, or survivors who found shelter without contacting friends who reached out to police. Sometimes the police have only a first name. “Obviously, there’s not a whole lot you can do with that information,” Tuscaloosa Police Chief Steven Anderson said Thursday. Alabama off icials are declining to say how many people could be missing statewide, and are now even keeping mum about the state’s official death toll as it re-examines the tally. They reduced the figure from 250 to 236 on Monday after accounting for a gruesome fact of the storm: Some victims had been counted more than once because parts of their bodies were found in more than one place.

meeting privately with families of those who died. “This is a symbolic site of the extraordinary sacrifice that was made on that terrible day,” the president said at Engine 54, Ladder 4, Battalion 9. The firehouse in New York’s theater district lost 15 firefighters on 9/11. The fire crews gave him hearty applause. Obama said the American pursuit of the terrorist leader “sent a message around the world but also sent a message here back home that when we say we will never forget, we mean what we say, that our commitment to making sure that justice is done is something that transcended politics, transcended party.” The president closed his eyes and clasped his hands at the outdoor memorial where the twin towers of the World Trade Center once dominated the Manhattan skyline. Obama spoke with children who lost parents and adults who lost spouses. As he bowed his head, a jetliner screamed by, far overhead.

9/11 opportunity Families of victims would likely prefer to meet SEALs, intelligence officials.
resident Obama and his handlers probably tried to keep his Thursday visit to New York City’s World Trade Center from looking like a campaign trip but rather as a solemn event to lay a wreath at ground zero to show his appreciation for the courage and skill of the Navy SEALs and intelligence officials who planned and executed the daring and successful raid to kill Osama bin Laden. He also found time to meet and visit with New York City firemen and police officers and with relatives of those killed in the Trade Center attack. It always is an honor to meet and visit with the president, but one has to wonder if the relatives, as well as the police and firemen, would have rather had the opportunity to meet with representatives of the SEALs and Central Intelligence Agency who planned and executed the highly successful attack. They are the ones who helped bring some degree of closure to these relatives who lost loved ones in the Sept. 11, 2001, attack. They would have liked to be able to thank those who took part in the actual attack. Obama admirers will defend the president’s visit while others will say it was a shrewd political maneuver taking advantage of the SEALs’ successful mission as a means to strengthen his political position for the upcoming presidential election.

Some Lawrence businesses served by the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railway were at risk of having their shipments and deliveries affected by a recent YEARS strike. Thousands of engineers, conducAGO tors, and other workers for the railway IN 1986 had entered into the third day of their strike, and there were no talks yet scheduled between the railroad and its union employees. Some of the Lawrence businesses served by the railway included Quaker Oats, TRW, Packer Plastics, Lawrence Paper Co., and the K-Mart Distribution Center. The slogan “Lawrence, Kansas: Not Just Another Pretty Place” had been selected by the Chamber of Commerce to promote local tourism and convention business. The slogan, to be used as a logo on promotional advertisements and pamphlets, was to be introduced to the Lawrence city commissioners at their next meeting.
Bret Waller, the director since 1968 of the Kansas University Museum of Art, had resigned his post and accepted a position at the Metropolitan Museum of YEARS Art in New York City, where he would be AGO in charge of a newly established departIN 1971 ment of public education. Waller said that his only regrets about his time at the KU museum concerned the "failure to make any perceptible progress toward a solution of the critical physical plant problems. Unless these problems are solved — unless there is a new museum building soon — all the momentum we have been able to generate will be lost." [The museum, which was then housed in Spooner Hall, would not receive a new home until the Helen Foresman Spencer Museum of Art opened seven years later.] Dr. E. Raymond Hall, Summerfield professor of zoology at KU, met with members of the Lawrence Sierra Club to discuss the benefits of the proposed Tallgrass Prairie National Park. The proposed park, a minimum of 3,000 acres on the eastern slope of the Kansas Flint Hills, would preserve the only virgin tallgrass prairie remaining in the United States, said Hall.

Physical, political threats outlive Osama The White House has never seen a night quite like Sunday. The president of the United States alerted the press he had an announcement not only for the nation but also for the world. He appeared gravely before a microphone announcing the death of a foreign leader and pronouncing it an act of justice. Outside the executive mansion, crowds cheered. In military installations and at airports, security was heightened. A great goal was achieved, but finality in the broader struggle remained elusive. Osama bin Laden was the subject of the largest, longest and most important manhunt in the history of American national

myriad questions and may raise the threat to Americans’ safety for the time being.”
security. Kaiser Wilhelm II was an American opponent for one year, Hideki Tojo was the face of America’s Japanese enemy in World War II for three years, and Adolf Hitler was the personification of America’s war against Nazi Germany for four years. But for Americans, bin Laden’s languid eyes and iron resolve were for nearly a full decade the symbol of evil, and of the dangerous new era the nation entered the morning of Sept. 11, 2001. Details have been dribbling out about the raid on a $1 million mansion in Abbottabad, Pakistan, surrounded by barbed wire but without Internet or even telephone connections — the bin Laden analogue of the Fuhrerbunker where Hitler died in 1945 or the hole at the Tikrit farmhouse where Saddam Hussein was found in 2003 — along with pictures of the bloody scene there at the end of a narrow dirt road 65 miles north of Islamabad. The killing of bin Laden and his burial at sea may be the answer to many prayers and may eventually bring a safer world. But the death of the al-Qaida leader raises myriad questions and may raise the threat to Americans’ safety for the time being. Here are some of those questions:
● Is the death of bin Laden the 2011 equivalent of the death of Benito Mussolini or of Josef Stalin? Mussolini’s death, followed by the hanging of his body upside down at a Milan gas station (you can view the grim spectacle on YouTube), was one of the final steps on the way to Axis defeat in World War II. But the death of Stalin, who perished slowly after a stroke in 1953, was only a historical marker on the long Cold War road. Stalin eventually was succeeded by Nikita Khrushchev, who continued the Soviet struggle with the West, which would not end for another 36 years. For all the talk of “closure” brought by the death of bin Laden, shot in the head by Navy SEALS, it neither closes the war on terrorism nor even the more narrow struggle against al-Qaida, which is one of many rogue extra-national groups that threaten the United States and its allies, particularly Israel. In fact, Washington cautioned Americans to increase rather than relax their vigilance. ● What are the many meanings of the death of bin Laden? For starters, it is a symbol of American determination even in the face of failure and frustration. The bin Laden trail grew cold many times, but former President George W. Bush and Obama were committed to root him out. The death of al-Qaida’s strategic and spiritual leader also signals that American human-intelligence efforts, derided if not ridiculed during the Iraq and
Afghan wars, retain great strength and skill and that American military forces, who rehearsed the bin Laden raid twice, possess great flexibility and ingenuity. Bin Laden’s demise also suggests that terrorist leaders cannot forever escape American capture or killing. ● Why did Obama make this moment his own? The president announced the killing of the great American nemesis because it was the realization of what he described as “the most significant achievement to date” in the effort against terrorism. So important to the president was this operation in politically sensitive Pakistan that he personally authorized it. The president also wanted to ensure that the death of bin Laden was handled discretely and without triumphalism. In this regard, the Obama announcement echoed President George H.W. Bush’s admonition that American officials not gloat in the face of the destruction of the Berlin Wall and the demise of communism in 1989. ● What are the dangers ahead? The first is a retaliatory attack against U.S. companies, military installations or cultural icons at home or abroad. Foes of American policy or adherents to the bin Laden creed will be more motivated this week than they have been in years. Then there is the American relationship with Pakistan. Ties between the two nations, early allies in the war on terror, are
Presidenting while black One thinks of rats scurrying off a sinking ship. Meaning the new exodus of birthers from birtherism. Fox News now says in a blog post that it hardly pushed the birther issue at all. Wonder how folks got the idea Fox did that? Oh yeah: by watching Fox. And Rush Limbaugh says he “warned people this was a dead end.” This is the same Limbaugh who recently said there were “legitimate citizenship questions” about President Obama. Granted, some on the right were starting to distance themselves from this absurdity even before Obama finally released his long-form birth certificate last week. Witness Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer vetoing a bill that would have required presidential candidates to provide proof of birth. Perhaps the few remaining grownups on the right begin to fear the effect of being defined by cartoon characters and cranks. But let us not dismiss the birther imbroglio without calling out the bigotry at its core. Yes, that word will bring howls of protest from people who will declare that race had nothing to do with their demands for Obama’s original birth certificate. And I believe them. Or at least, I believe they believe what they are saying. Thing is, bigots do not usually stand up and say, “I am a bigot.” They hide this from

themselves, much less from you or me. Indeed, Mel Gibson, last heard telling his girlfriend she would be raped by a pack of effing N-words, just said in an interview that he is not a racist. In assessing bigotry, then, one learns to judge actions over words. And the actions of many Americans have screamed their discomfort with the idea that a black man is now the man. A computer abstract of his birth certificate, a perfectly ordinary document that satisfies passport requirements of the U.S. State Department does not satisfy Donald Trump? Give me a break. Some have suggested that Obama’s opponents — like George W. Bush’s — are simply out to delegitimize his presidency. Wrong. They are actually out to delegitimize him. I mean, we just saw the president of the United States required to show his papers, like some brother caught driving too nice a car in too nice a neighborhood after dark. Pres-
identing while black, I suppose. Nor does even that suffice to prove his bona f ides, as diehards now challenge the validity of the new document and Trump turns his attention to supposed irregularities in Obama’s academic transcripts. It never stops. Gregory Howard Williams, an African-American man who looks about as “black” as Thor does, once told me how, when he became dean of his law school, a white woman co n g rat u l a te d h i m o n h i s well-deserved achievement. Later, somebody told her he was black and she asked if that was why he got the job. When she thought Williams was white, she assumed he was qualified. When she learned he was black, she assumed he was not. That, my friends, is what you’re seeing here — a new iteration of an old mindset that says a black man can never achieve a thing on his merits, so there must always be some trickery, some fakery, some sinister machinations obliging us to regard his success with suspicion. Even if the black man in question is the president. I have seldom been more embarrassed for my country. — Leonard Pitts Jr., winner of the 2004 Pulitzer Prize for commentary, is a columnist for the Miami Herald. He chats with readers from noon to 1 p.m. CDT each Wednesday on www.MiamiHerald.com.
frayed and will be further endangered as a result of this U.S. military operation. Though the president cited Pakistani assistance in the raid, officials in Islamabad were not notified in advance of the operation and on Monday emphasized it was an American effort prosecuted by American troops traveling in American helicopters. ● Finally, what are the domestic political consequences 18 months before the American presidential election? Certainly this success improves Obama’s profile as a warrior against terrorism, buttressed by former President George W. Bush’s remarks shortly after the announcement of bin Laden’s death. The killing of bin Laden deprives Obama’s rivals of criticism that his fecklessness permitted the nation’s mostwanted enemy to operate unimpaired for another four years. But these sorts of nationalsecurity triumphs often do not translate into political success. George H.W. Bush presided over the fall of communism and the defeat of Iraq but was himself defeated by Bill Clinton in 1992. Winston Churchill presided over the Allied effort in World War II but was ousted from office after victory in Europe and before victory in the Pacific. Both leaders lost decisively. So this week’s events enhance the president’s re-election prospects, but offer no assurance of his political survival. — David Shribman is executive editor of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
Show support To the editor: Military Spouse Appreciation Day is today. This day was set aside by President Ronald Reagan in 1984 to recognize the sacrifices military spouses make every day to make this country a better, safer place for all of us. Military spouses don’t wear a uniform. They don’t receive medals to acknowledge their sacrifices for this nation. Many of you have probably interacted with a military spouse and not even realized it. These men and women serve silently, doing all the things normal Americans do. They also pick up and move across the country and start their lives over approximately every year to 18 months. They spend countless hours as the volunteer backbone of our nation, spending year after year calmly and quietly carrying on, while in the back of their minds they are worrying that the last phone call they got from their service member, which was garbled and cut off right in midsentence, is the last time they’ll hear his/her voice. They worry that knock on the door will mean their loved one is not coming home. They worry over their children who carry that same burden of worry. Military families don’t ask for very much. But on this day our nation has set aside to honor these sacrifices, I implore you to look around and find some of the military and National Guard spouses in your neighborhood and say thank you. More importantly, ask if you can help them ease their load, even for a day. Show the world that “United We Stand.” Charity Lander, Lawrence

LAWRENCE HIGH 3, LEAVENWORTH 2
Zenger’s approach refreshing A couple of weeks ago, I observed new Kansas University athletic director Sheahon Zenger on the job. His personality and genuine interest in the people he’s talking with make it seem as if Zenger is always on the job. But don’t confuse being on for being on the job. Zenger’s always on. I was able to catch a behindthe-scenes look at the way he conducts business in the Dolph Simons Media Communications Conference Room at the Wagnon Student-Athlete Center. Zenger, KU chancellor Bernadette Gray-Little and the Kansas Athletics, Inc., board of directors, were there for their quarterly meeting. It was the second such meeting Zenger had attended and already he looked comfortable. In a meeting weighed down by technical jargon and seemingly endless reviews of and changes to the organization’s bylaws, Zenger lent a fresh, energetic touch. We’ve all seen his public handshakes and smiles. Behind closed doors, Zenger has them too. In this setting, they were neither quite as glowing nor as long, appropriately so because just about everyone in the room worked for him. Not that you would have known that from watching. Sitting at the head of the table, Zenger was just as happy to let others handle the day’s business as to interject his thoughts. When he did, he spoke in a rational, calm, strong and confident manner and seemed content to simply nod approval when appropriate. As easy as it would have been for Zenger to stand tall and speak loudly on every topic, it was obvious he was not interested in making it about him. There was work to be done, and he forged through it in a way that seemed to say, “Might as well have fun doing it.” Though he’s been in town for just four months, questions have surfaced about whether the forever-smiling face has what it takes to handle the grunt and grind that comes with big-time collegiate athletics. Those I spoke with who worked for him at Illinois State laughed at the notion that Zenger wasn’t tough enough. At the meeting, Zenger demonstrated his mind is always working toward solutions to make the grind less grimy. On one occasion, Zenger circled back to an item that had passed. He wanted to make sure the language with which a change was written was as clear as possible. A few minutes earlier, Zenger put on display his compassion, when he said that his only concern about changing the name of the chancellor’s advisory committee to the athletics advisory committee (or something of the like) was that it not offend those who serve on it. As Zenger put it, “It’s important that they don’t feel that it’s a demotion.” Finally, when the board discussed whether adding the words “is bound to act in accordance with Big 12 and NCAA rules,” to its bylaws was necessary, Zenger moved to the edge of his seat and jumped in. “I’m thinking really out of the box here,” he said. “Let’s say 20 years down the road, 50 schools disagree with something the NCAA does. Are we bound to stay with them if we put this in or can we...” A couple of board members quickly informed the bylaws can be amended at any time. “OK. That’s great,” Zenger said. “That’s all I needed to know.” Impressive. Think more Bill Gates and less Donald Trump.

LAWRENCE HIGH’S TROY WILLOUGHBY SLIDES INTO HOME PLATE as Leavenworth catcher JT Core attempts to make the tag. The Lions edged the Pioneers, 3-2, on Thursday at LHS.
With victory, Lions clinch league baseball title By Clark Goble Journal-World Sports Writer
With the bases loaded and two outs in the seventh inning of a tie game against Leavenworth, Lawrence High junior catcher Jake Vinoverski was a little nervous at the plate. To help Vinoverski relax during a pitching change, coach Brad Stoll walked down from the third-
base coaching box and told him a joke. “He didn’t like that,” Stoll said. The Lions certainly liked what happened next. Vinoverski kept his bat on his shoulder as the full-count pitch from Leavenworth’s Judson Cole bounced in the dirt, bringing senior Ross Johnson home from third and propelling the Lions to a 3-2 victory at LHS.
“It felt like a 50-pound weight got lifted off my shoulders there,” Vinoverski said. The victory clinched the Sunflower League title for Lawrence High, but Stoll didn’t even realize it until he thought about the standings and games remaining. The Pioneers didn't make it easy for the Lions, plating a run and stranding three runners on base in the first inning.
The Lions (11-7, 9-1 Sunflower League) scored runs in the second and third innings to take a 2-1 lead, but the Pioneers scored the tying run in the fifth inning on a sacrifice fly to right field with the bases loaded. LHS senior pitcher Alex Laughlin worked out of three basesloaded situations in the game and gave up just two runs. Please LHS BASEBALL, page 3B

Prestonwood Christian Academy’s football team will boast one of the tallest wide receivers in the state of Texas this fall. Future Kansas University basketball power forward Zach Peters, a massive 6-foot-9, 240pound junior who last played football his freshman year, has decided to play two sports his final year at the Plano, Texas, high school. “I was thinking about my senior year and everything ... I love football. I regret not playing. I don’t want to regret not playing football my senior year,” said Peters. He averaged 15.3 points
I love football. I regret not playing. I don’t want to regret not playing football my senior year.” — KU commit Zach Peters and 9.0 rebounds per game this past season for 26-11 Prestonwood. Peters, who is Rivals.com’s 97rated player in the basketball recruiting Class of 2012, earned first-team TAPPS (Texas Assn. of Private and Parochial Schools) basketball all-state honors. “It’s just as easy getting hurt playing basketball as football,” said Peters, who was given the OK from his future college coach to be a dual-sport athlete again.
“Coach (Bill) Self played football. He said (to) play football.” Peters — he played in a couple spring events for Texas Titans’ AAU basketball team — said he will skip the summertime AAU circuit and practice both basketball and football leading up to the start of the 2011-12 school year. “I played AAU the last eight years. This summer I decided not to. I felt it would be better to work on little things so I could become a better player and get
my body where I want it to be,” Peters said, noting he was planning on making at least one trip to Lawrence. “I should be up in June to come up randomly and play at night with the guys and work out,” Peters said of unsupervised pickup basketball action. “There are some things I need to work on and I feel I’ll get more accomplished working out rather than playing (AAU).” Peters said he remains committed to playing just one sport in college — hoops. “I’m definitely going to KU to play basketball,” said Peters, who along with future KU target Please see PETERS, page 3B
FSHS softball slips by SM North By Ben Ward Journal-World Sports Writer
As it turned out, a 45-minute lightning delay was the best thing that could have happened to Free State High’s softball team. The Firebirds came out of the locker room a different team, capitalized on a plethora of Shawnee Mission North mistakes, and walked off with a sloppy 7-6 victory on a cold, rainy Thursday night at FSHS. With the game tied 6-6 in the bottom of the seventh, Remington Samuels struck out on a wild pitch for what appeared to be the third out. Extra innings, right? Wrong. The SM North catcher, need-

side of that. You just need to be able to take advantage.” The Firebirds (8-9), who celebrated senior night for Ali Arnold, Paige Rothwell and Christy Wagner, capitalized on mistakes, but they also were rejuvenated following the lengthy weather delay, when they trailed, 6-3.

Tigers 6, Yankees 3 D E T R O I T — Brennan Boesch homered and drove in three runs, and the Detroit Tigers took advantage of some sloppy fielding to beat the New York Yankees for the third straight time. Derek Jeter didn’t play for the Yankees, given the day off after leaving the previous night’s game with a right hip problem. His replacement, Eduardo Nunez, made two errors, including a high throw in the seventh that gave the Tigers two runs.

COLLEGE PARK, MD. — After sweating through crisp white shirts and expensive suits for more than three decades, Maryland basketball coach Gary Williams is finally ready to take it easy. Williams announced his retirement Thursday, saying “it’s the right time” for him to end a career in which he led his alma mater to the 2002 national championship. Williams coached for 33 years, the last 22 at Maryland, where he played as a guard from 1964-67.

Royals pound Baltimore, 9-1 SCOREBOARD ————
K.C. calls up top prospect Hosmer, demotes Ka’aihue BOX SCORE
By Doug Tucker Associated Press Sports Writer
KANSAS CITY, MO. — Finding themselves competing for the first time in years, the Kansas City Royals have decided to hurry their top prospect to the big leagues ahead of schedule. Minutes after beating Baltimore, 9-1, on Thursday behind Melky Cabrera’s four RBIs and Bruce Chen’s strong pitching, the Royals announced Eric Hosmer was being called up from Triple-A Omaha and would start tonight against Oak- Hosmer land. Struggling Kila Ka’aihue goes back to Omaha. The announcement is certain to boost attendance tonight. The 21-year-old Hosmer is Kansas City’s most heralded prospect since Alex Gordon was the overall No. 2 pick in 2005. He’s also one of many

Julius Randle (15.0 ppg, 9.8 rpg), helped Prestonwood to a runnerup finish in the state tourney this past season. “Zach works extremely hard. He’s one of the hardest workers we’ve got definitely,” Prestonwood coach Brad Freeman said. “He is really big, strong. He’s so big that right now the main thing is not getting too big. “I don’t know of many kids who have that problem,” Freeman added, referring to high schoolers already having bodies suitable for the college game. “You don’t want to be too heavy. It’ll slow you down. Some kids just have it naturally.” Peters has needed a durable body to fend off opposing teams who have double- and triple-teamed him. “He plays well (with his) back to the basket, but we pop him out some,” said Freeman, who will not be returning as coach for Peters’ senior sea-

KANSAS CITY RELIEVER JEREMY JEFFRESS (41) IS CONGRATULATED by catcher Brayan Pena after the Royals blasted the Orioles, 9-1, on Thursday in Kansas City, Mo. young players that have made the Royals’ minor league system the envy of most major league organizations. “We wanted to wait and give him about 200 at-bats and let him get his feet on the ground,” manager Ned Yost said. “But we’re playing pretty good baseball and we need some production out of that first-base spot.”
son. “He can handle the ball out on the court as well. At 69 ... in high school you will play inside. Coach Self told him, ‘Play where your team needs you.’’’ Peters acknowledged that when three opposing players are on him, “it is tough getting position and stuff. I’m starting to learn how to do some different things. I had to step out a bit. I actually shot a lot of jump shots.” He’ll likely have to deal with just as much attention from foes his senior year. “They send two to three guys inside. It makes it tough,” Freeman said. “He will not see that on the college level. You do that and those other Div. I athletes will tear you up.” Peters, who orally committed to KU on April 21, 2010, will sign his letter of intent with KU in November. KU coach Bill Self cannot comment on prospective players until the school receives the signed letter of intent. Peters, who f irst started being recruited by schools when he was in seventh grade, had North Carolina, Kentucky and Texas on his original list.
At Omaha, Hosmer was batting .439 with three homers and 15 RBIs. He was K.C.’s first-round pick in 2008 and has overmatched the pitching at every minor league level. Yost agreed that one reason the Royals are bringing Hosmer up sooner than planned was because the Royals, 17-14 and second in the AL Central behind Cleveland, are con-
He said no schools have tried to recruit him since he orally committed to KU. “They (college coaches) come to see Julius,” he said of the 6-8, 235-pound Randle, the No. 3-ranked player in the Class of 2013, “but they know where I am going and have not tried to recruit me.” Randle, who already has been compared to Chris Webber, recently told tarheelillustrated.com that he has a list of KU, Texas, Oklahoma, Missouri, North Carolina, North Carolina State, Ohio State, Duke and Kentucky. “That’s all I can think of right now,” Randle told the website. “I have a lot of respect for every school. All of those schools are big-time programs. They’re all on the rise or at the top right now. It’s just a great honor to be offered by those schools, and having other schools recruiting me, it doesn’t really matter,” he added. ●
Peters’ new coach: Prestonwood’s new basketball coach is Chris Mayberry, who coached the past nine years at the First Academy in Orlando,

“He’s the kind of guy you want on the mound in a game like that, when you need strikeouts or you need an out,” Stoll said said. “I can’t say enough about Alex Laughlin. He’s an absolute battler.” Stoll said his team will take the ugly win after playing three home games in three days. “That was kind of one of those wins where you feel a little dirty walking out of here,” Stoll said. Thursday’s game was originally meant to be played at Leavenworth, but the school’s field wasn’t in game condition. Next up for the Lions is a City Showdown matchup at 5:30 p.m. on Monday at Free State. Three days later, the Lions play host to the Firebirds at Kansas University’s Hoglund Ballpark. “We’re looking to win the big kahuna,” Vinoverski said. “We’re looking to win state.”
with a single, scored on an error to cut the lead to 6-4. To lead off the fifth, junior Samantha O’Brien blasted a 32 pitch over the left field fence to make it 6-5. “I felt it right off the bat,” O’Brien said with a smile. “It was great.” Later in the fifth, Whitney Rothwell reached and scored on an error after hits by Davis and A’Liyah Rogers. The Firebirds scored their first four runs off of SM North errors. FSHS will play at Shawnee Mission Northwest in a makeup doubleheader at 10 a.m. on Saturday.

Journal-World Sports Writer
Lawrence High senior pitcher Lauren Massey has thrown her share of quality outings in her career. So following her complete game, 10-strikeout effort in LHS’s 3-2 victory over Shawnee Mission North on Thursday evening at FSHS, she was a bit more excited about another aspect of her game — her first home run. “Finally,” Massey said. “I always miss it by a little bit off the fence. It felt good.” “She was great (in the circle),” LHS coach Reenie Stogsdill said. “And I think that home run she hit got her adrenaline going, too.” Th e n o - d o u b t b l a s t to left field put the Lions on t o p , 1- 0 , a l e a d w h i c h Massey easily protected, as she quickly mowed down the Indians in nearly every inning.
She fanned one in the first, one in the second, and two more in the third before striking out the side in the fifth and two more in the sixth. “A lot of it is mound presence,” Massey explained. “If you’re in control and you’re confident then you’ll pitch confidently.” Massey helped her own cause again in the fifth with a single that set up LHS’ second run, after Lauren Byrn — who was 3-for-3 — smashed an RBI triple to right field. Kristen Bell went 1-for-2 and was hit by a pitch for the Lions (9-8). Massey only relented three hits and gave up an unearned run in the seventh after an error and a single. “Everyone makes errors; I make errors,” Massey said. “It’s about moving past that and getting the next batter.” SM North Lawrence High

I felt I wasn’t deserving. Now all my income goes toward housing, clothing and feeding my children. There’s not much left over to repair my deteriorating mouth. My kids have dental coverage, thanks to their father, but I do not. I’d love to have a bright smile and beautiful teeth. Is there any way to get help? — Hidden Smile

Turner Classic Movies honors TV luminary Cloris Leachman Turner Classic Movies offers a three-film festival of thrillers featuring hard-boiled detective Mike Hammer, beginning with “Kiss Me Deadly” (7 p.m., TCM) starring Ralph Meeker. Cloris Leachman appears in a supporting role in this movie from 1955. Just how long has Cloris Leachman been acting? Her remarkable career includes an Oscar for the drama “Last Picture Show” (1971) and unforgettable roles in Mel Brooks comedies, most notably “Young Frankenstein” (1974). But television has been where Leachman has been working. And working. Even more than the beloved Betty White, Leachman has been an essential part of television throughout the medium’s entire history. A cursory glance at her list of credits presents a snapshot history of the small screen. Years before most Americans even owned a set, Leachman appeared on “The Ford Theatre Hour” in 1948! She’d go on to star on dozens of shows — many now forgotten — during television’s first decade. She’d make only one appearance on “The Twilight Zone,” but it was an indelible one, as the terrified mother of an all-powerful destructive brat (Billy Mumy) in the 1961 episode “It’s a Good Life.” Throughout the 1960s, she’d make single or multiple appearances on “The Untouchables,” “Route 66,” “Wagon Train,” “Alfred Hitchcock Presents,” “77 Sunset Strip,” “The Defenders,” “Dr. Kildare,” Perry Mason,” “Run for Your Life,” “Adam-12,” ”The Name of the Game,“ and “Ironside.” And those are only the wellknown series! It’s a long, long time from the period of Uncle Miltie and Sid Caesar’s “Your Show of Shows” to “American Idol.” But Cloris Leachman has been a part of television through every decade and every era. And she’s not just a novelty act or a comeback kid. She’s an essential part of the chemistry of “Raising Hope.” No one person could ever embody the vast scope and history of television entertainment. But if I had to choose just one, It would have to be Cloris Leachman. ● ”Flashpoint“ (7 p.m., CBS), the competently made Canadian drama about a special unit devoted to handle hostage and sniper crises, returns for a new summer season.
Tonight’s other highlights ● Coach mediates a locker room brawl and Luke fields offers on ”Friday Night Lights“ (7 p.m., NBC). ● An Italian restaurant seems caught between Avanti! and Basta! on ”Kitchen Nightmares“ (7 p.m., Fox). ● Almost a bridge too far on ”American Loggers“ (7 p.m., Discovery). ● A crime lab becomes a crime scene on ”CSI:NY“ (8 p.m., CBS). Peter Fonda guest stars. ● Peter looks destiny in the eye on the third season finale of ”Fringe“ (8 p.m., Fox). ● Suspicion falls on a son after family friends of the Reagans are slain on ”Blue Bloods“ (9 p.m., CBS). ● Craig Morgan and Brett James guest judge on ”CMT’s Next Superstar“ (9 p.m., CMT). ● Guinevere takes a trip ”Camelot“ (9 p.m., Starz).
JACQUELINE BIGAR’S STARS For Friday, May 6: This year, be more aware of your finances, the stress around them and the potential for changing that situation. As you look to a new type of interaction, you will feel good and much more valued. If you are single, you could meet someone in your day-today travels. If you are attached, the two of you will tumble into one of your more romantic periods. Cancer draws you out. The Stars Show the Kind of Day You’ll Have: 5Dynamic; 4-Positive; 3Average; 2-So-so; 1-Difficult Aries (March 21-April 19) ★★★★★ Keep talks moving. You might not be comfortable with everything you are hearing. Realize what is going on with others before you make a financial decision. Tonight: Hang out with a friend, but make it an easy night. Taurus (April 20-May 20) ★★★★ Be aware of where you are coming from financially. You might be overly tired and withdrawn. Be willing to say “no” to a money offer. Tonight: Your treat. Let the good times roll. Gemini (May 21-June 20) ★★★★ You are all smiles and take a leap of faith. Nevertheless, a
meeting defines your decisions. You now know which way to go. Tonight: Living in the moment. Cancer (June 21-July 22) ★★ Know that you are best off holding your opinions back. Words come forward that might be irritating but force some type of internalization. Tonight: Know what you want. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) ★★★★ You might be a lot happier with a personal matter than you originally thought you’d be. Making a decision could lead to substantial discomfort. Tonight: Lots of fun early on. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) ★★★ Tension builds, whether you’re conscious of it or not. This situation could change radically if you relax and try another approach. Tonight: A late meeting could dissolve into a fun happening. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) ★★★★★ Your mind is everywhere but present in the moment. Strange things happen when you become too lodged in reverie. Optimism seems to surround you, encouraging you to clear out a problem with a key person. Tonight: Split from the tried-and-true as soon as you can.

Dear Annie: I am a white male and have fallen in love with an African-American woman who is 12 years older. I have never met such a wonderful, kind, sweet, caring and loving woman. She makes me laugh. She is my soul mate. I want to spend the rest of my life with her. At the moment, we aren’t dating. We are just friends, but I’d like more than that. The problem is my family. They don’t approve of interracial relationships. My parents are old school. They believe you should stay with your own race. If I brought this woman home, my family would disown me. They are very difficult people. My family is important to me. I don’t make enough money to be on my own. My parents are getting older, and they need my help, and I need theirs. I don’t know what to do. I don’t want to lose my family or this wonderful woman. Forget about counseling. My family would never go for that. — Interracial Couple
