Felon in KU tickets case has already repaid $63K By Mark Fagan mfagan@ljworld.com

be, as they say, up to the judge. Ben Kirtland, former associate athletics director for development, entered into a private civil settlement with the department in October, less than a month before his indictment by a federal grand jury in a conspiracy to steal, sell and otherwise illegally distribute thousands of

football and basketball tickets for personal gain. Kirtland, who awaits sentencing Thursday in Wichita, paid Kansas Athletics the $63,000 — an amount reached through negotiations initiated by Kirtland — by the end of last year. The payment came at least eight weeks before he pleaded guilty

to conspiracy to commit wire fraud, a felony punishable by up to 20 years in prison and a $250,000 fine. Since then his fellow co-conspirators have been sentenced to anywhere from 37 months to 57 months in prison, and ordered to be responsible for more than $2 million in restitu-

Al-Qaida vows to avenge bin Laden PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA greets military personnel who recently returned from Afghanistan Friday at Fort Campbell, Ky.

By Maggie Michael Associated Press Writer

CAIRO — Al-Qaida vowed to keep fighting the United States and avenge the death of Osama bin Laden, which it acknowledged for the first time Friday in an Internet statement apparently designed to convince followers that it will remain vigorous and intact even after its founder’s demise. Al-Qaida’s plots are usually large-scale and involve planning over months or even years. But Western intelligence officials say they are seeing increased chatter about cheap, smallscale attacks — perhaps by individuals or small extremist groups inspired to take revenge for the killing. “USA, you will pay!” chanted more than 100 par-

ticipants in a pro-bin Laden protest outside the U.S. Embassy in London on Friday. A Western intelligence official said no concrete threat has emerged so far that authorities considered credible. “There have been mentions of shootings, bombings and random violence, though it is not surprising, given bin Laden’s death,” the official said, speaking on condition of

anonymity. Authorities in the U.S. and Europe chose not to elevate threat levels. Interpol has asked law enforcement agencies in 188 countries to be on alert for retaliatory attacks. Communities have been warned to report anything suspicious. Embassies and some American businesses have added new security measures. Despite the Internet chatter, reaction in the Islamic

world to bin Laden’s death has been relatively muted compared with the rage that he long inspired, raising questions about his relevance in the Middle East — a region that has been changed by a wave of prodemocracy uprisings. The al-Qaida statement, entitled “You lived as a good man, you died as a martyr,” did not name a successor to bin Laden. His deputy, Ayman al-Zawahri, is now the most prominent figure in the group and a likely contender to take his place. “The blood of the holy warrior sheik, Osama bin Laden, God bless him, is too precious to us and to all Muslims to go in vain,” the statement said. “We will remain, God willing, a curse Please see AL-QAIDA, page 2A

The smells of impending summer wafted over Broken Arrow Park at 31st and Louisiana streets on Friday as some of the Midwest’s best grill masters fired up their smokers in preparation for the Lawrence Sertoma 48 BBQ Cookoff. The 13th annual event, sponsored by Lawrence Sertoma Club, pits 48 teams of barbecue professionals and amateurs against one another in a battle for the title of grand champion. Dee Bisel, publicity chair for the sponsoring organization, said she was ready for the festivities but knew full well it’d be a hectic few hours. “We’re working so hard all day that we rarely get the chance to eat,” she said, chuckling. Bisel will most likely be in

CONTESTANTS JON STAMBAUGH, front, Sean Roberts, left, and Corey Johnson work to prepare a pork shoulder with seasoning for the 13th annual Lawrence Sertoma 48 BBQ Cookoff on Friday at Broken Arrow Park. Today, members of the public are invited to sample meats prepared by the contestants as a part of the “People’s Choice” portion from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. the minority from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m. today, when the event opens to the public and barbecue chicken, pork, ribs and brisket are made available to the masses.

Amid the cooking and consuming will also be judging, both by local residents and officials from the Kansas City Barbeque Society. While the judging and

prize money might be serious motivation for some, others simply enjoy the experience. Jeremiah Donnelly of Lawrence has competed in the competition for three years and admits his team’s results have not been stellar. “We don’t plan on ever winning or even finishing top 10,” Donnelly said. “We just come here to have a good time.” Other teams do expect to finish near the top. Chris Crockett and Rick Bull comprise team Crock and Bull and already have a grand champion title. They’ll compete in the local event for the first time today. “It’s expensive and completely labor intensive,” Crockett said of barbecue competitions. “But it is fun.” All proceeds collected from the event will benefit local organizations. — Reporter Joe Preiner can be reached at 832-6314.

Kansas Highway Patrol investigators focused on 24-year-old Ryan Pittman’s use of marijuana, anxiety medication and methadone as a contributing factor to a deadly April 16 crash on Kansas Highway 10 near Eudora. “The combination of drugs in (Pittman’s) system would cause response time to be very slow,” Trooper Casey Simoneau wrote in his accident report completed this week. Pittman and 5-year-old Cainan Shutt, of Eudora, died in the crash. Troopers said Pittman’s eastbound Toyota Camry drifted across the median near the Church Street interchange and struck head-on the westbound minivan that Cainan’s stepgrandfather, Danny Basel, was driving. Five-year-old Simoneau told the Jour- Cainan Shutt, of nal-World earli- Eudora, died in er in the week the crash. that drug use and driver inattention would be listed as contributing factors to the crash but that troopers wouldn’t know a specific cause for Pittman’s car drifting across the median. A preliminary autopsy report indicated Pittman had marijuana, benzodiazepine and methadone in his system, but the full autopsy is not yet complete. Simoneau’s written report obtained by the Journal-World lists more details about what troopers discovered, mostly through interviews, in their investigation: ● Pittman was attending a methadone clinic, and his last known payment to the clinic was March 25. ● He would also take Xanax, a type of benzodiazepine used to treat anxiety, without a prescription once or twice a day if he had the pills. ● Pittman also would smoke marijuana two or three times a day when he had it. ● The highway patrol initially identified Pittman as a Eudora resident, but the report lists a Lawrence apartment as his address. Eudora Mayor Scott Hopson has said Pittman’s family has longtime ties to Eudora. ● Troopers found no evidence that Basel, a Eudora man who is a city of Lawrence public works employee, was impaired or that he was using his cell Please see K-10, page 2A

for the judge to consider,” said Jim Cross, a spokesman for the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Wichita. “He will have to decide whether that private agreement does or does not figure into what he’s doing.” In the settlement agreement, Kansas Athletics has agreed to advise the court that Kirtland already has paid $63,000 — a fact to be provided “for such use as the court deems appropriate.” The information has been forwarded to U.S. Probation Office officials, who compiled a presentence report for use by Brown in determining Kirtland’s sentence. For the record, Kansas Athletics doesn’t intend to seek any additional money from Kirtland, off icials said, although the department

chasing the Americans and their agents, following them outside and inside their countries.” “Soon, God willing, their happiness will turn to sadness,” it said, “their blood will be mingled with their tears.” Although the statement’s authenticity could not be independently confirmed, it was considered to be authentic. It was posted on militant websites Friday by the al-Fajr Center, al-Qaida’s online media distribution network, and the writing style was typical for alQaida. The statement was issued in the name of the organization’s General Command and dated Tuesday, the day after bin Laden’s death. White House press secretary Jay Carney said U.S. officials are aware of the statement and the threat. “What it does obviously is acknowledge the obvious, which is that Osama bin Laden was killed,” said Carney. “We’re quite aware of the potential for (terrorist) activity and are highly vigilant on that matter for that reason.” Despite the new threats against the United States, the overall theme of the al-Qaida statement was that of continuity for the organization. Much of the 11-paragraph statement was dedicated to underlining that al-Qaida would live on, depicting him as another in a line of “mar-

would pursue collecting more if the judge so ordered. “Nothing precludes us from going after any additional amounts the judge orders,” said Judy Pottorff, the department’s corporate counsel. No other defendants in the case have entered into such settlements with the department, although at least one has tried. Rodney Jones, former assistant athletics director for the Williams Fund, had proposed such an arrangement but was rebuffed by Kansas Athletics, according to a motion filed by Jones’ attorney. Jones, who is in custody at a federal prison camp in Oklahoma, is required to pay at least 10 percent of any money deposited in his inmate trust fund toward restitution: nearly $1.2 million to Kansas Athletics, and another $114,000 to the IRS. Upon his release from prison, Jones then must contribute at

tyrs” from the group. “Sheik Osama didn’t build an organization to die when he dies,” the statement read. “The university of faith, Quran and jihad from which bin Laden graduated will not close its doors,” it added. “The soldiers of Islam will continue in groups and united, plotting and planning without getting bored, tired, with determination, without giving up until striking a blow,” the statement said. The acknowledgment by al-Qaida should remove doubt among all but the most die-hard conspiracy theorists that bin Laden is in fact dead. Meanwhile, the wealth of information pulled from bin Laden’s compound has reinforced the belief that he played a strong role in planning and directing attacks by al-Qaida and its affiliates in Yemen and Somalia, senior U.S. officials said Friday. And the data further demonstrates to the U.S. that top al-Qaida commanders and other key insurgents are scattered throughout Pakistan, not just in the rugged border areas, and are being supported and given sanctuary by Pakistanis, a senior defense official said. U.S. counterterrorism officials have debated how big a role bin Laden and core alQaida leaders were playing in the attacks launched by affiliated terror groups, particularly al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula, which is based in Yemen, and al-Shabab in Somalia.

least 5 percent of his gross monthly income toward restitution during three years of supervised release. Pottorff declined to discuss Jones’ settlement attempt, other than to acknowledge that it came sometime after Jones had been indicted. Kirtland’s settlement — approved by both Jerry Bailey, a KU professor and chairman of the department’s board, and KU Chancellor Bernadette Gray-Little — required Kirtland to pay half the money by Nov. 19 and then the rest by the end of January. Less than a month later, on Feb. 24, Kirtland had pleaded guilty to his role in the conspiracy. His written plea included Kirtland’s own estimate that he’d sold $120,000 of tickets illegally, keeping a share of the proceeds and concealing the transactions from his bosses and the IRS. Such information had not

been available to the department when officials entered into the settlement. “He came to us,” Pottorff said. “We didn’t know where the court was going to be. We didn’t know if he was going to be indicted. At that point, when somebody offered us money and who indicated that there was some involvement in the theft of tickets, we decided to accept it.” And the agreement does not prevent the department from receiving additional compensation if so ordered by the court, said Jim Marchiony, an associate athletics director. “It would have been irresponsible not to take it,” Marchiony said. Kirtland’s attorney, Robin Fowler, declined to discuss the agreement or its implications, pending Thursday’s sentencing hearing. — Schools reporter Mark Fagan can be reached at 832-7188.

Chancellor’s assistant taking phased retirement By Andy Hyland ahyland@ljworld.com

An assistant to the chancellor who has worked at Kansas University for more than 40 years will enter phased retirement during the next school year. Jeff Weinberg, who moved from KU’s financial aid office to become an associate vice chancellor of student affairs, was hired by then-Chancellor Robert Hemenway to serve as one of his assistants shortly after Hemenway’s arrival in 1996. He has worked in the chancellor’s office under Hemenway and for Chancellor Bernadette Gray-Little. “I think phased retirement offers a wonderful opportunity for us to continue to make a contribution to the university and to engage in other interests we might have,” Weinberg said. Phased retirement is a program under which faculty and staff can continue to receive full benef its — including a contribution to their retirement program at their full salary — while working at a reduced rate. Weinberg will take two years of phased retirement. Next academic year, he

will work half-time in the chancellor’s office, and then in the 2012-13 year he will work half-time in the KU Honors Program where he will be doing some teaching and advising. He said he intended to continue to work with the variety of community organizations with which he is involved. “Jeff is the kind of guy who can put the finesse on a project and put the spit and shine on a program,” said David Ambler, a retired vice chancellor for student affairs who hired Weinberg to work in his office. Weinberg said he will pursue other interests, like painting and writing, during the time he won’t be working at KU. “I’ll miss the full-time rigor, but it’ll be replaced for me with something that’s very exciting,” he said. He said he did not know what would happen to his position in the chancellor’s office in the long term, but some of his duties would be absorbed by Tim Caboni, the incoming vice chancellor for public affairs. — Higher education reporter Andy Hyland can be reached at 832-6388.

Bert Nash program ‘life changing’ for participants By Karrey Britt kbritt@ljworld.com

Ron Fowler wrote a poem about how Bert Nash Community Health Center had changed his life. As he read the poem Friday, there was hardly a dry eye in the room. “It’s been a rough five years since I became ill Though time kept rolling, my life came to a standstill The bills kept coming, there seemed to be no end Until I came to Bert Nash, where I found a good friend.” Fowler spoke during a recognition luncheon given by Bert Nash at Maceli’s in downtown Lawrence. About 80 people attended the event that honored those involved with its Supported Employment Education Development program. The program helps individuals with mental health challenges obtain or maintain employment or achieve a higher education. The program has about 100 individuals who are helped through 60 Douglas County businesses and colleges, including Kansas University. Bert Nash employee Heidi Pritchard helped Fowler get a

job at KU’s department of student housing about six weeks ago. He’s a general maintenance repair technician. Fowler He said he fixes faucets, showers, fans — just about anything — and he enjoys it. “I was talked to and asked, what things I might need I didn’t have a real clue, so Heidi took the lead She looked and worked, hoping to find me a place To help me feel again like part of the human race The time we spent looking for a place I would fit Filling out apps., waiting for the right place to submit On my first interview, my life started taking a turn I was given a job, which really helped all my concerns Now I can say that my life is better and I won’t crash Yes, I am working full-time, thanks to Heidi and Bert Nash.”

phone during the crash. Ali Shutt, Cainan’s mother, has said her children were with their grandparents for an Easter egg hunt that afternoon. Cainan’s sister, Courtlynn Shutt, 2, suffered a broken vertebra but is expected to make a full recovery, and his grandmother Ann Basel was also injured and later released from the hospital. ● Cainan was secured by a seat belt and booster seat, and Courtlynn was secured in a child-restraint seat with a harness. The Basels wore seat belts, but Pittman did not. ● According to Danny Basel’s written statement to troopers, his wife grabbed his arm when she saw the car coming across the median. He immediately put his foot on the brake to slow down to 60 mph, and he tried to move into the inside westbound lane to avoid the Camry. But a car in that lane was too close for him to move over. “At that time I looked to see where the car was, and he was about eight feet from us,” according to Basel’s statement. “I decided to change lanes and at that instant he turned into us and hit us head-on.” ● Troopers said the speedometer on the Camry stopped at about 45 mph and the van’s speedometer was stopped at about 65 mph. ● The report also notes Pittman’s license was suspended at the time. According to state records, the suspension took effect Jan. 25 for failing to maintain continuous liability insurance or file evidence of insurance. His state driving record listed zero prior accidents. After the crash, Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback directed the Kansas Department of Transportation to reopen a study about whether a cable barrier should be installed in the median along K-10 east of Lawrence to stop vehicles from drifting into the wrong lanes of traffic. KDOT officials are scheduled to meet with city officials, including those from Lawrence and Eudora, on Thursday. — Reporter George Diepenbrock can be reached at 832-7144.

Brownback doubles wind-turbine-free zone

Gas price to drop for summer

By Scott Rothschild

Investors finally hit the brakes on oil, gold, silver and food prices. This week’s sharp sell-off doesn’t mean commodity prices’ stunning rise over the last several months is over, but it is good news for anyone planning a road trip this summer. Oil prices fell 15 percent this week, the steepest decline in two and a half years, just as average U.S. pump prices were approaching $4 a gallon. Gasoline prices fell imperceptibly to consumers’ eyes Friday — one-tenth of a penny to just over $3.98 per gallon — but that ended a 44-day streak of rising prices. Prices will soon drop noticeably, and some analysts said they could hit $3.50 by summer. Analysts say investors got nervous that oil, metals and grains had risen over the past few months to unrealistic heights. Their rush to sell also knocked silver prices down 28 percent, sugar down 13 percent and natural gas down 10 percent. The most common reason given by analysts for the sell-off was the strengthening U.S. dollar.

TOPEKA — Gov. Sam Brownback on Friday announced a plan that he said would protect the tallgrass prairie by preventing further development of commercial wind farms in the Flint Hills. Brownback said he has reached an agreement with a coalition of ranchers, preservationists, wind developers, power companies and government officials to keep the area free of

CEO pay exceeds pre-recession levels In the boardroom, it’s as if the Great Recession never happened. CEOs at the nation’s largest companies were paid better last year than they were in 2007, when the economy was booming, the stock market set a record high and unemployment was roughly half what it is today. The typical pay package for the head of a company in the Standard & Poor’s 500 was $9 million in 2010, according to an analysis by The Associated Press using data provided by Equilar, an executive compensation research firm. That was 24 percent higher than a year earlier, reversing two years of declines. Executives were showered with more pay of all types — salaries, bonuses, stock, options and perks. The biggest gains came in cash bonuses: Two-thirds of executives got a bigger one than they had in 2009, some more than three times as big. 2 | WASHINGTON, D.C.

Hiring at fastest pace since 2006 American companies are on a hiring spree. Businesses delivered a jolt of strength to the economy by creating 268,000 jobs in April, the biggest monthly total in more than five years. The gains were solid across an array of industries, even beleaguered construction. It was the third month in a row of at least 200,000 new jobs. The private sector has added jobs for 14 consecutive months. Even a slight rise in the unemployment rate to 9 percent appears to be a quirk. The job growth was better than economists expected and perhaps the strongest sign yet that what they call a “virtuous cycle” has taken hold: When people spend more, corporate earnings rise, leading to more hiring and then more spending.

wind turbines. The designated “Tallgrass Heartland” area covers nearly 11,000 square miles running from Riley and Pottawatomie counties in the north to the state’s southern border. In 2004, then-Gov. Kathleen Sebelius issued a plan discouraging wind development in a portion of the Flint Hills. Brownback’s proposal doubles that area. Brownback said his administration will work with wind

developers to build in other parts of the state. And, he said, the Tallgrass Heartland designation will not prohibit construction of electric transmission lines. Wind farms currently under power-purchase agreements within the protected area will continue, he said, but will not be expanded. The tallgrass prairie once covered 400,000 square miles of North America. Now, less than 1 percent remains, with most of that in Kansas.

Designating the area as the Tallgrass Heartland, Brownback said, would protect the ecosystem and increase tourism. Allan Pollom, state director of The Nature Conservancy, commended Brownback for “his thoughtful and balanced approach. He has reminded us all, as Kansans, of the honor we share as stewards of the last great stand of tallgrass prairie.” — Statehouse reporter Scott Rothschild can be reached at 785-423-0668.

“We don’t want to forget people who have made that sacrifice — officers Allen Moore, Wilson Pringle and Melvin Howe,” Police Chief Tarik Khatib said. “That was a long time ago, but certainly those aren’t forgotten, and we don’t want to have that happen again.” The annual ceremony honored the officers and Lawrence firefighter Mark Blair, who died in a 1986 arson fire, as part of Kansas Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Day.

SATURDAY COLUMN

Republicans must not forget Congress in 2012 elections By Dolph C. Simons Jr.

Regardless of the national debt, the price of gasoline, unemployment numbers, illegal immigration, the economy and other negative situations, President Obama will be a tough incumbent to defeat in the upcoming 2012 presidential election. This week’s daring and successful raid on Osama bin Laden’s hideaway will certainly give the president a boost in public popularity numbers, although this groundswell of favorable thoughts about the president probably will be temporary and fade from the public’s mind before November 2012. Nevertheless, Obama promoters will work hard to keep it in the forefront in his presidential campaign. Some Republican strategists have suggested Obama will be easier to defeat in the 2012 election than he was in 2008. This writer believes he will be just as tough, or tougher. His handlers, and the president himself, could be likened to extremely tough, skilled and experienced street fighters, using every possible

trick to nail down another four years in the White House. His campaign leading up to his 2008 victory should offer ample proof of the challenges faced by his GOP challenger. Various senior political observers were quick to give the Obama team high marks for planning and executing an almost perfect campaign. It’s likely, rather it’s “guaranteed,” Obama will have a record-breaking war chest to fund his campaign. Various reports indicate he raised close to $800 million in his first bid for the presidency, and he and party leaders hope to top the $1 billion mark before November 2012. This will dwarf whatever the GOP is able to raise. Likewise, he will have the services of record numbers of volunteers who will commit substantial time and effort to campaign and bring out the voters to support the Obama candidacy. He did this in his first campaign, and the 2012 effort will be even more sophisticated. Thousands of these volunteers did far more than just put up yard signs and knock on doors. They committed weeks to go

wherever they were needed throughout the country. The names of these volunteers were added to vast computer information banks, so they can be retrieved and returned to active duty in the upcoming months. Like-

COMMENTARY wise, the names, addresses and other pertinent information of all financial contributors were stored away, and these individuals are sure to be solicited again in the coming months. An added plus for Obama is what he has accomplished in his two-plus years as president in using federal assistance programs to ingratiate himself to millions of Americans. He and his aides will claim that if Obama is not re-elected millions of dollars in federal assistance will be reduced or eliminated. That’s a strong and powerful argument. As several top Demo strategists noted prior to the 2008 campaign, fear is the most powerful campaign

tactic. Another plus is the massive support he will be receiving from organized labor. Potential Republican candidates surely are aware of the odds stacked against them in their efforts to defeat incumbent Obama, even if the national debt situation worsens, there are new troubles in Iraq, North Africa, Afghanistan, Iran, North Korea, Pakistan or other trouble spots, or if unemployment numbers should remain high or even grow to greater numbers. This being the situation, it seems the best plan for Republicans would be to select their best and strongest candidate to take on Obama, but at the same time give the U.S. Senate and House races equal priority. There is ample evidence of how Obama wants to change this country. He said as much in his first presidential campaign when he told supporters they were only days away from being able to bring about a fundamental change in this country. He has followed through on this pledge in many ways and if he should be re-elected, there’s no limit to what he may try to do to this country.

The only way to stunt or stop these radical changes is if the GOP can maintain and/or strengthen its majority in the U.S. House and win enough seats in the Senate races to control that legislative body. Otherwise Obama would be free to impose his welfare, socialistic blueprint on America. As election time draws nearer, Obama is sure to try to present himself as moving from his far Left political philosophy to a more moderate or central position, but such actions will be purely to better his re-election chances. The best advice for those watching the Obama campaign is to not pay attention to what he says, but what he has done. For example, his pledges for transparency in government actions and ample time for lawmakers to examine proposed legislation and how this compares to what actually happened with the Obama medical care plan and other executive actions. It’s likely to be a very mean, tough presidential campaign with Obama forces pulling out all stops. That’s why the House and Senate elections will be so critical.

Budget CONTINUED FROM PAGE 3A

Hensley of Topeka. “It’s important the governor show some leadership.” Both Hensley and House Democratic Leader Paul Davis of Lawrence also complained that Brownback has shut out Democrats from budget negotiations. Brownback’s office did not respond to the comment. Early Friday, Ways and Means Chairwoman Carolyn McGinn, R-Sedgwick, told House budget negotiators that the last two budget offers from the House had gone backward and the two sides were “growing further apart.” House Appropriations Chairman Marc Rhoades, RNewton, said, “I think the House feels we have done most of the giving.” The two sides agreed to meet again Monday but set no time. McGinn said she wanted the House to produce another offer. After 13 rounds of meetings, the House and Senate remain far apart on all major budget items, including funding of public schools and social services. Essentially, the House wants to cut more spending in order to build up a larger ending balance for the next fiscal year, which starts July 1. House Speaker Mike O’Neal, R-Hutchinson, said a larger ending balance helps the state maintain cash flow in the event that revenue collections fall below projections. “Your revenues don’t come in as estimated, you go under water and everyone gets cut,” O’Neal said. He said the ending balance should be in the $50 million range. Senate leaders said they don’t want to build an ending

balance at the expense of funding needed services. The state budget has already been cut by more than $1 billion over the past two years. The Senate’s ending balance proposal is around $26 million, which includes $22 million in revenue that came in above the estimate for last month. “We’d all like a healthy ending balance in this budget,” said Senate President Steve Morris, R-Hugoton. “But we’d also like to make sure our local schools stay open, our senior citizens are cared for, and our economy remains on track for recovery. We have the ability to do both.” On school funding, the Senate proposal would cut base state aid to schools by $226 per student, or 5.6 percent. The House plan cuts it by $250 per student, and Brownback had proposed a $232per-student cut. Any of the plans would drop school funding to its lowest level in a decade. And, as in all legislative sessions, there are several policy issues unrelated to the budget that are coming into play in the negotiations. When legislators return Monday, it will be the 87th day out of a scheduled 90-day session. McGinn has filed a bill that would cut off legislative pay after Thursday if the session goes into overtime. O’Neal described the bill as “window dressing.” He said it would be impossible to put it into effect in a timely manner, but he said he agreed with the sentiment and would urge all legislators to forgo their pay if the session goes beyond Thursday.

FIREFIGHTERS RESPOND FRIDAY to a call at Gaslight Tavern in North Lawrence. The fire, which started just before 6 p.m., was confined to a small utility room in the rear of the building. The structure was unoccupied at the time of the incident and no one was injured. There were no damage estimates Friday, and the cause of the fire was unknown. See the video at LJWorld.com.

Of the three Lawrence officers, Moore died from a gunshot wound from his own weapon May 22, 1901, at the Union Pacific train depot in North Lawrence; Pringle was shot Oct. 11, 1909, while investigating a robbery and died five days later; and Howe was shot and killed April 24, 1931, after making a vehicle stop on a robbery suspect. Several retired officers and city and other public safety officials with Lawrence-Douglas County Fire Medical, the Douglas County Sheriff ’s Office and Kansas University Public Safety Office attended the Friday morning ceremony in west Lawrence.

He said that nationally the fatality statistics for officers bears watching after 117 officers died in 2009 and then spiked to 162 officers in 2010. Khatib said most of the deaths appear to be due to traff ic accidents and decreased staffing levels for budgetary reasons. Mayor Aron Cromwell said even though it had been decades since a Lawrence police officer died in the line of duty, it’s important to focus on what public safety officers and their families face daily. “I stand here on behalf of myself, on behalf of the city, on behalf of the City Commission, humbled by your willingness to take that sacrifice upon yourself to make this a better place,” Cromwell said. “I appreciate that from the bottom of my heart.” — Reporter George Diepenbrock can be reached at 832-7144.

ROSS

With a sweet face to go along with this name, you know what’s a-comin’ … better pucker up for a kiss! I’m about a year old with a sleek black coat, and my white chest uniquely flecked with black makes for one striking Lab mix, I must say. I really enjoy people and I’m looking for someone with an active lifestyle. With a little training, I could be a great jogging partner. And, regardless, I KNOW I’ll be a great companion.

Want something out of the ordinary? I’m the one for you. A Catahoula Leopard Dog mix, my neat coat – mostly black with a white merle pattern (leopard spots) – really turns heads. My breed is known for loyalty, intelligence, and a loving disposition. I’m only 1-2 years old, and athletic as all getout. I’ll need daily exercise and would make for a perfect walking or jogging partner. I also enjoy attention, which you’ll see plenty of with me at your side!

“Darius the daring” is my nickname because I’m a live wire! I’m a fun, fast, and vivacious boy, but I’ll slow down for people affection. I’m quite the looker too — white with yellow ears, a few spots, and a wild ringed tail! I’ve been at the shelter since I was 6 weeks old. It’s 7 months later and I’m still here longing to find out what “home” is all about. My age qualifies me for the “kitteen” adoption fee: just $20!

At 11 months of age, I’m a “kitteen,” meaning I’m a teenager in cat years. And right now, the adoption fee for all “kit-teens” is only $20! I’m a very sweet boy with a shiny black coat and bright green eyes. But sadly, I’ve spent most of my life at the shelter. I long for a new start in a real home where love and affection are always on tap. Will you give me the chance I need?

With a name like mine, you have to have all the charm in the world just to get by. Don’t worry, I’ve got what it takes. I’m about a year old, coal black with bright green eyes. I’m an alert and curious fellow, and all the noise at the shelter makes me wonder. But give me a safe home and watch the charm start rolling.

Man pleads guilty for ON THE RECORD LJWORLD.COM/BLOTTER part in cockfighting ring LAW ENFORCEMENT REPORT juvenile as suspects. Fellers said officers believe the adult susA 45-year-old Douglas County man Friday pleaded guilty to a felony charge in connection with operating a cockfighting ring south of Eudora. According to Douglas County District Attorney Charles Branson’s office, Ezequiel Olivas entered the plea to unlawful conduct of cockfighting. Douglas County Sheriff’s officers began investigating Olivas and another man, Jose Guerrero, in April 2007, and officers obtained a search warrant in November 2009 on Olivas’ rural residence about seven miles south of Eudora, in which officers seized 118 gamecocks, 48 hens and three chicks, according to Branson’s office. The Kansas Legislature enacted tougher legislation in 2009 that made the crime a felony, and Olivas’ case was believed to be the first charged under the new law. Guerrero was also charged, but as both men were free on bond he failed to show up for court in 2009. According to court records, his $5,000 bond was forfeited because the bondsman was unable to locate Guerrero, and his case is still listed as pending. District Judge Kay Huff is scheduled to sentence Olivas on June 7, and prosecutors said Olivas likely faces a probation sentence because he lacks a significant criminal history to be sentenced to prison. Paul Morrison, a former Kansas attorney general now in private practice, defended Olivas in the case.

• A Craigslist posting advertising a baby for sale in Lawrence has been determined to be a hoax. According to Lawrence Police Sgt. Troy Squire, emergency dispatchers received calls shortly after 5 p.m. Friday from area residents concerned about a posting on the classifieds website regarding a baby for sale. Squire said detectives were contacted about the situation and were able to identify where the posting had originated. The suspect was contacted and the posting was determined to be a hoax. The investigation of the incident is ongoing. No charges have been filed against the suspect at this point. • Lawrence police early Friday morning arrested a 22year-old Richmond man in Ottawa as a suspect in connection with two robberies that occurred in central Lawrence earlier this year. A Lawrence man reported March 20 to police two separate alleged robberies that occurred in February and March at his residence in the 800 block of Hilltop Drive, near Ninth and Iowa streets, Capt. Paul Fellers said. The victim alleged in February an acquaintance of his and another person armed with a gun tied him up and stole money and other property from his residence. He also alleged a second armed robbery involving several individuals occurred there in mid-March, Fellers said, when a pistol, computer, a video game system and cell phone were taken. The alleged victim said he was struck in the face and received treatment a few days later at Lawrence Memorial Hospital for a facial injury. Detectives served a search warrant at a Franklin County residence and eventually arrested the 22-year-old man and a

According to Megan Gilliland, communications manager for the city, the Standard Traff ic Ordinance for Kansas Cities states that when a vehicle bears a special license plate or placard, the vehicle is being operated by or used for the transportation of a person with a disability, these vehicles are exempt from any parking fees of the state of any city, county or other agency. On Kansas University’s campus, people who want to park in handicapped parking regularly must register their placards. Donna Hultine, director of parking at KU, said the policy was relatively new to help prevent people from using placards they found or got from a relative.

pect was involved in both alleged robberies. He was arrested on two counts of aggravated robbery, one count of aggravated battery and one count of aggravated burglary. Douglas County prosecutors did not file formal charges against the adult suspect Friday. Cheryl Wright, a district attorney’s office spokeswoman, said the man likely would appear today before a judge who would set his bond, meaning formal charges wouldn’t need to be filed until Monday. The Journal-World generally does not identify suspects unless they are formally charged. • A small electrical fire Friday afternoon damaged siding and insulation but didn’t cause any major problems to a house just south of the Kansas University campus. Lawrence-Douglas County Fire Medical Division Chief Joe Hoelscher said insulation was smoldering in a box that supplies electricity to the house at 1301 W. 19th Terrace. Firefighters tore away siding from the back of the house and were able to extinguish the insulation fire, Hoelscher said. Fire crews were called at 2:20 p.m. Friday. A fire investigator was working with a Westar Energy crew as firefighters were leaving the scene. Hoelscher said the fire did not cause major damage inside the house. 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.

L AWRENCE J OURNAL -WORLD

7th-grader taken to K.C.-area hospital after fall during field trip By George Diepenbrock gdiepenbrock@ljworld.com

A Southwest Junior High School student was unconscious for a short time Friday morning after falling near the Clinton Lake dam, school and fire officials said. The student was alert and conscious once firefighters rescued her, but she was taken to a Kansas City-area hospital via helicopter ambulance as a precaution, said Division Chief Joe Hoelscher of Lawrence-Douglas County Fire Medical. Julie Boyle, a Lawrence public schools spokeswoman, said the seventhgrade female student fell while on a walking field trip in southwestern Lawrence. School and Douglas County Sheriff’s officials said the girl tumbled down in a hilly area that faces south near the intersection of a bike path and East 900 Road. Boyle said the students

were taken by bus to the Youth Sports Complex southwest of Wakarusa Drive and the South Lawrence Trafficway. The students then walked along the bike path west toward the dam to search for rocks and fossils. She said that before the girl fell, several students and teachers were walking down that portion of the hill. Douglas County Undersheriff Steve Hornberger said the girl apparently tumbled an undetermined distance in the area near the spillway after she lost her footing. The girl was flown via a LifeStar helicopter ambulance to Children’s Mercy Hospital in Kansas City, Mo., for treatment of her injuries, and her parents accompanied her, Boyle said. She was released from the hospital Friday night. “I was told she was alert and conscious at the scene,” Hornberger said. Hoelscher said a fire crew performed a “low-angle res-

cue” during which they tied a rope to a tree and pulled themselves down to the student to get her into the ambulance. He said the girl fell from a “steep slope” in the area that had been carved out for the spillway near the dam. Hoelscher said the hill has points that drop off from five feet to 15 feet, but crews were not sure how far the girl fell. “District administrators are at Southwest Junior High and (the fields) assisting school staff in supporting students,” Boyle said Friday afternoon. “Of course, our thoughts and concerns are with the injured student and her family. Southwest Junior High plans to continue its regular school day.” The school district also sent out an automated call about the incident to Southwest parents Friday. — Reporter George Diepenbrock can be reached at 832-7144.

senior Alex Earles. “The pain of having heels on for four laps is nothing compared to what someone has to go through when it comes to domestic violence.” Zachary Clark, a KU junior, was slowly making his way around the track in red pumps. He estimated it was taking about 5 minutes per lap. “It’s unpleasant to say the least, but it’s worth it,” he said. Clark is a volunteer at The Willow Center. At first, he worked in the shelter and provided resources for victims. Now he helps raise awareness about the cause and center. He applauded the other men’s efforts.

“They put me to shame. I am by far the worst one here when it comes to walking in heels,” he said. “Shade Little is a beast. He’s very good at it.” Little is pictured wearing red heels in The Willow Center’s 2011 Red Shoe Calendar, and he just happens to be featured this month. “It’s all for a good cause,” he said. The Willow Center provides safe shelter, peer counseling, advocacy and other services to survivors of domestic violence in Douglas, Franklin and southern Jefferson counties. It serves about 1,500 survivors each year. — Health reporter Karrey Britt can be reached at 832-7190. Read her health blog at WellCommons.com, and follow her at Twitter.com.

Wearing red pumps, Shade Little, husband of Kansas University Chancellor Bernadette Gray-Little, and Hank Booth, longtime Lawrence radio personality, made their way onto the track at Haskell Indian Nations University Stadium. They led Lawrence’s first “Walk a Mile in Her Shoes: Red Shoe Walk” event Friday evening. The event, which also included a 5K run, was held to raise awareness about domestic violence and to support The Willow Domestic Violence Center in Lawrence. It was the center’s first major fundraiser in 34 years. About 100 people participated, and several hundred cheered them on. The mile-long walk drew about 30 participants, and the men who were brave enough to sport heels received the most attention. Five members of KU’s Delta Lambda Phi fraternity showed up in heels and made their way around the track. One toted a purse and a couple wore “Real Men Wear Heels” T-shirts. During their final lap, they said their toes were hurting and they learned how easily heels sink into the wet ground. “We are happy to wear heels for 20 minutes and help raise awareness,” said KU

Evil does not die of natural causes WASHINGTON — Two months and a day before 9/11, terrorism expert Larry C. Johnson published “The Declining Terrorist Threat,” a New York Times op-ed decrying the fact that “Americans are bedeviled by fantasies about terrorism,” when, in reality, “the decade beginning in 2000 will continue the downward trend” in lethal terrorism. Not quite. A decade later, Osama bin Laden is dead and the old chorus of pre-9/11 complacency has returned. The war on terror is over — yet again, it seems. Bin Laden was but “a distraction,” writes Peter Beinart, and the war on terror “a mistake from the start.” 9/11 was nothing more than “an isolated case,” argues Ross Douthat. And “ bin Laden was always the weak horse.” The new post-bin Laden dispensation is that the entire decade-long war on terror was an overreaction — as shown by the bin Laden operation itself, which, noted one critic, looks a lot like police work, the kind of law enforcement John Kerry insisted in 2004 was the proper prism through which to address the terror threat. On the contrary. The bin Laden operation is the perfect vindication of the war on terror. It was made possible precisely by the vast, war-like infrastructure that the Bush administration created post-

Charles Krauthammer

letters@charleskrauthammer.com

9/11, a fierce regime of capture and interrogation, of dropped bombs and commando strikes. That regime, of course, followed the more conventional war that brought down the Taliban, scattered and decimated alQaida and made bin Laden a fugitive. Without all of this, the bin Laden operation could never have happened. Whence came the intelligence that led to Abbottabad? Many places, including from secret prisons in Romania and Poland; from terrorists seized and kidnapped, then subjected to interrogations, sometimes “harsh” or “enhanced”; from Gitmo detainees; from a huge bureaucratic apparatus of surveillance and eavesdropping. In other words, from a Global War on Terror infrastructure that critics, including Barack Obama himself, deplored as a tragic detour from American rectitude. It was all not just un-American, now say the revisionists, but also unnecessary.

Really? We could never have pulled off the bin Laden raid without a major military presence in Afghanistan. The choppers came from our massive base at Bagram. The jump-off point was Jalalabad. The intelligence-gathering drones fly over Pakistan by grace of an alliance (unreliable but indispensable) forged with the U.S. to fight the war in Afghanistan. Even the war in Iraq played an (unintended) role. After its rout from Afghanistan, alQaida chose the troubled waters of Iraq as the central front in its war on America — and suffered a stunning defeat, made particularly humiliating when its fellow Sunni Arabs rose up to join the infidel Americans in subduing it. Bin Laden declared war on us in 1998. But it was not until 9/11 that we took him seriously. At which point, we answered with a declaration of war of our own, offering the brutal, unrelenting and ferocious response that war demands and that police work prohibits. Including, bin Laden’s execution. It’s clear there was no intention of capturing him. And for good reason. Doing so would have been insane, gratuitously granting him a second life of immense publicity on a worldwide stage from which to propagandize. We came to kill. That is

From the Lawrence Daily Journal-World for May 7, 1911: YEARS “‘Less Food and AGO Better Cooking’ is a IN 1911 reform which the chemistry department of K.U. hopes to make as popular in Kansas as any economy in living is sure to be in these days of trusts and monopoly. Prof. E. S. H .Bailey is issuing this week little pamphlets containing nine suggestions intended to scientifically contribute towards a greater economy of food. They include: Stop eating more than is needed; do not waste good food by throwing it away; remember that food bought in small packages often costs more than it is worth; contradict the fallacy that ‘the most expensive food is best;’ do not purchase food out of season; remember that the best of food may be spoiled by bad cooking.”

what you do in war. Do that in police work — and you’ve committed murder. The Navy SEALs who pulled the fateful trigger would be facing charges, not receiving medals. You want to say we’ve now won the war? Fine. It’s at least an arguable proposition. After all, the war on terror will end one day and we will return to policing the odd terrorist nutcase. I would argue, however, that while bin Laden’s death marks an extremely important inflection point in the fight against jihadism, it’s far too early to declare victory. Now, it is one thing to have an argument about whether it’s over. It’s quite another to claim that our reaching this happy day — during which we can even be debating whether victory has been achieved — has nothing to do with the war on terror of the previous decade. AlQaida is not subsiding on its own. It is not retiring from the field, having seen the error of its ways. It is not disappearing because of some inexorable law of history or nature. It is in retreat because of the terrible defeats it suffered once America decided to take up arms against it, a campaign known as the war on terror.

PUBLIC FORUM

Rising values To the editor: Homeowners DO notice how the property tax values continue to go up while property sale values go down in a recession. The problem is, the county compares your property to five houses that the computer picks out, not necessarily in the same area, but the same square feet and style. The reason owners do not appeal is because of the cost for an independent appraisal, court and attorney fees, time and stress. All this will probably cost more than the extra taxes. Homeowners insurance goes up too, not because of the inflated appraisals exactly but of the replacement value. Meanwhile seniors are living on a fixed income with no cost of living adjustment like Congress has. Maybe a class action lawsuit for honest appraisals is necessary. Mary Ann Kieffer, Lawrence

American dream To the editor: Diminish the American dream? (“U.S. must adjust expectations,” Journal-World, May 1). Wake up, Mr. Gurley! Didn’t we just eliminate the No. 1 plague of American happiness? Turn on the sunshine music. It’s still morning in America, and our best days are just over the horizon. Fall of Rome? What are you talking about? Nero never possessed 10 aircraft carrier groups, Caligula never commanded thousands of manned aircraft and ballistic missiles, and Maximus never owned tanks, attack helicopters or armed drones. We may be indebted up to our necks, and addicted to cheap energy and promises, but fed by the 24/7 bread and circus industry, the American people are not about to give up their pleasures or delusions without a fight. Ray Finch, Lawrence

Pakistan puzzle To the editor: We are all trying to decide whether or not we should support Pakistan, or if Pakistan is a friend or foe. The reality is that Pakistan is on the verge of becoming a theocratic state controlled by right-wing Muslims. Those presently in control are caught between a rock and a hard spot as they attempt to placate the Muslim extremists, maintain a democracy, and stay friendly with other civilized nations. Every time our state department or military attempts to influence this delicate balance we seem to create more problems for those we are trying to support. But the fact is we cannot influence or control Pakistan’s destiny. The people of that nation must determine their own future. If they want to lose their freedom and slink back to a primitive theocratic state, there is nothing we can do to prevent it. If you want to envision how complicated this is, try to imagine what it would be like to maintain a responsible, democratic nation if the rightwing Christian Conservatives and the Tea Party gang actually controlled more than 50 percent of our government. Freedom as we know it would become a fond memory. The fact is we do not have the money, power or right to dictate values. We obviously want the people in Pakistan to continue their democratic state, but it is their state and their struggle. E. Kent Hayes, Lawrence

Leopard mauls child at Wichita zoo WICHITA — A first-grader on a school field trip to a zoo was mauled by an Amur leopard Friday after the boy scaled a railing and approached the animal’s cage, a zoo spokesman said. The Wichita Eagle reported on its website that the boy received lacerations to his head and neck after the cat stuck a paw through its cage and grabbed the boy by the side of the head. He was taken to a hospital, where he was listed in fair condition. Jim Marlett, spokesman for the Sedgwick County Zoo in Wichita, said the boy climbed the 4- to 5-foot railing surrounding the leopard exhibit, crossed an 8-foot gap and stood next to the metal mesh fence of the animal’s cage. The boy began screaming as soon as the leopard grabbed him. A man and woman nearby jumped over the railing and ran to help him, and the cat let loose of the boy when the man kicked it in the head. School district spokeswoman Susan Arensman said that counselors were sent to the zoo to talk with children who saw the attack. The boy’s age wasn’t released, but Arensman said first-graders are generally 7 or 8 years old.

Kevin Barnes and company stop by Liberty Hall, 644 Mass., tonight for what promises to be an over-the-top carnival of the absurd complete with costume changes, wardrobe malfunctions and, at its core, really, really good music. The band is touring in support of last year’s “False Priest,” which expanded on the band’s already weighty psychedelic and ‘80s synth pop influences that they’ve embraced more and more through the years.

HIGH SCHOOL TRACK AND FIELD

Tom Keegan tkeegan@ljworld.com

Horse, hoops musings That poor horse Dewey Bunnell, a band member of America, rode through the desert in 1971. It had no name. Makes me sad to think that horse is dead now with no name engraved on its tombstone. Thankfully, every horse ever to run in the Kentucky Derby had a name, and the best was Secretariat, supposedly named for Elizabeth Ham, the executive secretary of Meadow Stable owner Christopher Chenery. Good thing it wasn’t named today or it would have been called “Administrative Assistantat.” A stab at how some of today’s Kentucky Derby horses might have gotten their handles: 1. Archarcharch: Named in honor of a former baseball player known for checking his swing. He checked his sneeze three times and keeled over before the “oo” ever came out. 3. Twice The Appeal: Named after the Morris twins, Marcus and Markieff. 5. Decisive Moment: Named at the last minute to capture the key to Kansas having the final piece it needs to hunt the Final Four. If visiting Trevor Lacey, the shooting guard from Alabama, has a moment today in which he decides he wants to be on the receiving end of Tyshawn Taylor’s assists as 16,300 basketball-crazed spectators roar their approval, rack up another Big 12 title for the Jayhawks. A 6-foot-3 shooter with deep, deep range, Lacey is a perfect fit for Kansas, provided he feels comfortable instantly becoming a high-volume shooter, a 30minutes-per game performer and isn’t afraid to let it fly from really, really deep. The departures of Tyrel Reed and Brady Morningstar will make it too tempting for opposing defenses to collapse on the post players and block the path of perimeter players slashing to the hoop. If Lacey would rather ease into his college career as a secondary player, he’s not the man for the job. Kansas needs a shooter ready to star right out of the gate. 7. Pants on Fire: Red-headed Rosie Napravnik will try to become the first female jockey to win the Kentucky Derby. Those who insist she is a look-alike to siren Julianne Moore need a new prescription, but Napravnik does bring a great deal Napravnik more glamour to the job than the average jockey. As for how Pants on Fire, the horse she’ll ride in today’s Derby, was given its handle, that’s a tough one. The only thing I can think of is the horse named itself. 8. Dialed In: Named after former Oklahoma basketball coach Kelvin Sampson. 13. Mucho Macho Man: It’s fun to stay at the Y-M-C-A. Hey! 18. Uncle Mo: Inspired by the Kansas basketball team’s performance in the final 2 minutes and 12 seconds of regulation, during which KU overcame a nine-point deficit and left nobody doubting which team would defeat Memphis in overtime. 20. Watch Me Go: Named in honor of all the golfers on Lawrence’s five courses who think they are hidden from view when they stand behind a tree. Little do they know everyone can see them, whether they want to or not. In most cases it’s the latter, Mr. Weak Bladder.

A real long shot

LAWRENCE HIGH JUNIOR BLAKE HOCKING prepares for a throw during the finals of the boys shot put event of the Kansas Relays on April 22 by Memorial Stadium. In his next meet, Hocking set the 59-year-old school record.

Lions’ Hocking learned from the best By Tom Keegan tkeegan@ljworld.com

The world’s biggest sponge — measured at 6-foot-3, weighing 260 pounds and made of rocksolid muscle — can be found at Lawrence High. Blake Hocking, a junior who recently broke a school record set before Bill Walton was born, did so with the help of the man whose mark stood for 59 years. Bill Nieder, who would go on to win a silver medal in the 1956 Olympic Games in Melbourne, Australia, and a gold in the 1960 Games in Rome, Italy, was more than happy to help via telephone from his California home when Hocking sought pointers last summer. “I talked to him probably for 45 minutes,” Hocking said. “He asked me how my training was going, how far I threw at the time and talked about one day getting his

record, but at that time it was not of finger-tip pushups, but I never thought they were that great until as realistic.” Not long after that conversation, he stressed them.” Hocking said Nieder told him, Hocking began to draw steadily closer to the record until breaking “The record stood for too long and it April 29 with a mark of 62 feet, 9 he hoped someone would break it before he died. He inches, beating was real down-toNieder’s record of 3 He was real downearth. He didn’t talk 60 feet, 9 ⁄8 inches set in 1952. Hocking to-earth.

FSHS, LHS 1-2 at regional By Clark Goble Journal-World Sports Writer

It’s only fitting that one of the four Class 6A tennis regionals was held Friday in Lawrence. The city schools, Free State and Lawrence High, shined. The Firebirds won the team regional championship with 16 team points, and the Lions finished right behind them with 12. Lawrence High freshman Thomas Irick secured the regional singles championship with a tense 6-4, 7-6 (7-4) victory over Free State junior Andrew Craig. “It’s been a really, really great day,” FSHS coach Oather Strawderman said after posing with his team and the championship plaque for pictures. The Firebirds qualified five players for state, the most in school history. Seniors Chris Helt and Patrick Carttar finished placed second, and the No. 2 doubles team of seniors Jack Hearnen and Luke Cortese took fourth. Helt, Carttar, Hearnen and

Naturally, he was there as more than just another spectator having a good time in the sun. The world’s biggest sponge was there as a student of the shot put. He said he asked for their best marks as high school shot putters and was told by Hoffa that his was 58-8, and Nelson said his was “55 or 56.” Hocking’s first teacher was his Please see HOCKING, page 4B

Cortese made it to the state tournament for the first time. Craig also will represent Free State in Topeka next weekend. The Lions will send four representatives to state: Irick and senior Ilan Rosen in singles, and the pair of senior Connor Schmidt and Matt Groh in doubles.

Rosen was seeded eighth out of 16 players at the beginning of the day. Schmidt and Groh were seeded 11th. The top six qualified for state. “It’s all we’ve been gearing up for all season,” LHS coach Chris Marshall said. “This is the one Please see TENNIS, page 4B

He scored 40 or more points in 10 games. “I think he is the best player to come out of Alabama in 25 years, maybe since (former Philadelphia 76er) Andrew Toney,” said Lacey’s former AAU coach, Mark Komara of Southeast Elite. “There’ve been some good ones from Alabama — Gerald Wallace, Marvin Stone, Charles Barkley way before him, DeMarcus Cousins, (Eric) Bledsoe.

COMMENTARY

Wanting a Derby pick? Take Nehro By Ed McNamara Newsday

LOUISVILLE, KY. — Amid the semi-controlled chaos of 19 thoroughbreds thundering toward the first turn, today’s Kentucky Derby will take shape like an amoeba devouring itself. Traffic problems will eliminate many in the quarter-mile rodeo drive before a screaming mob of 150,000 or so. In the next seven-eighths of a mile, others will fade because they lack speed and/or stamina. At the eighth pole, only a few contenders will remain. So, can you guess who they will be? Bear with me. I’m as confused as everybody else. But my Derby record in Newsday the past five years has been pretty good. I selected winners Street Sense ($11.80) and Big Brown ($6.20) in 2007 and 2008, and two horses I picked for second also won — Barbaro ($14) in 2006 and Super Saver ($18) last year. As for 50-1 Mine That Bird (2009), I dismissed him as an automatic throwout. Unfortunately, there haven’t been many Derby fields as confusing as this year’s. Don’t make the Derby more complicated than it already is. Start by weeding out horses you think have no chance: Brilliant Speed, Twice the Appeal, Decisive Moment, Derby Kitten, Twinspired, Santiva or Watch Me Go make any impact. In the unknown zone are Animal Kingdom and Master of Hounds, who have potential but have never run on conventional dirt. Stay Thirsty plodded home seventh in the Florida Derby, and not since Iron Liege in 1957 has a Derby winner been worse than fifth in his final prep. That leaves nine horses, many of them speed types likely to be cooked by what projects as a strong, crowded pace. Soldat, Comma To The Top, Pants On Fire, Shackleford and Mucho Macho Man should be near the front and may be drained before the real running begins on the far turn. Now we’re down to four horses, and I think the winner will come from this group: Three-time Derby hero Bob Baffert trains Midnight Interlude, who makes his fifth start after making his career debut Jan. 29. That’s a lot of racing in three-plus months, and every Derby winner since 1882 raced as a 2-year-old. Deep closer Dialed In is the 4-1 morning-line favorite by default, mainly because he was the only well-bet winner of the final nine Derby preps. Going from last to first always is a tricky business, especially when you have to weave past 18 rivals. If he pulls it off, hurray for him, but at that price, I can’t take Dialed In. My gut feeling is the Arkansas Derby was the best prep. Before its 1-2 finishers, Archarcharch and Nehro, drew post 1 and 19, respectively, I loved their chances. No horse has won from the rail since 1986, and no winner has come from there in a field this big since 1937. With Uncle Mo scratching, Nehro now moves to post 18, which is 1-for-29, still no bargain. Well, you could argue that maybe they’re due. Well, I say they’re overdue. I’ll pick Nehro first, Archarcharch second, with Mucho Macho Man taking third and Irish invader Master of Hounds completing a five-figure superfecta. If I’m wrong, as I assume I will be, I’m battle-hardened when it comes to public humiliation. After 31 years as a horseplayer and 11 as the former Gridiron Guide, I know there’s no future in the prediction business.

any admission of liability. The school said it incurred outside legal fees during the process of $395,000. The school said the money will be paid from conference and NCAA revenue and not from individual donations or ticket sales. Bill Snyder has since taken over for Prince. Snyder is 13-12 the past two seasons with an appearance in the Pinstripe Bowl this past season.

GOLF Ballesteros’ condition worsens MADRID — Golf great Seve Ballesteros suffered “severe deterioration” in his recovery from a cancerous brain tumor, a development that brought some players to tears as they considered his massive effect on golf in Europe and around the world. The 54-year-old Ballesteros was resting at home in the northern Spanish town of Pedrena, where he has mostly been since undergoing four operations in late 2008, his family said Friday.

At least this time, everyone wanted to talk to him about his golf. Four shots behind as he stood on the 13th tee on Friday at the Wells Fargo Championship, he ran off five birdies over the last six holes for a 6-under 65 and a two-shot lead going into the weekend.

Uncle Mo scratched from today’s Derby LOUISVILLE, KY. — The pockmarked road to the Kentucky Derby claimed another victim Friday when Uncle Mo was scratched due to a mysterious stomach ailment, further dimming a race already short on star power and speed. Uncle Mo’s defection also threw the Derby wide-open. “You’re never safe until you put that saddle on because anything can happen,” Hall of Fame trainer Bob Baffert said. Owner Mike Repole announced the decision to scratch second favorite Uncle Mo about 40 minutes before wagering opened for the 137th Derby, set for 5:24 p.m. CDT today. The colt has been bothered by a stomach problem, but vets couldn’t find a reason for his decreased appetite, energy and poorlooking coat. “I’m actually relieved and now I’m really concerned and worried about Uncle Mo,” Repole said. “My hope is Uncle Mo gets healthy. He is a superstar.” Uncle Mo’s absence reduced the already less-than-dazzling field to 19 horses, with Dialed In as the 4-1 favorite for two time-winning trainer Nick Zito. Already lost in one of the flukiest Triple Crown seasons in memory were Premier Pegasus, The Factor, Jaycito, To Honor and Serve and Toby’s Corner, among others. Today marks the 20th anniversary of Zito’s first Derby victory, when Strike the Gold came from off the pace in 1991.

KANSAS CITY, MO. (AP) — Eric Hosmer did not see pitchers like this in the minors. Hosmer made his heralded major-league debut Friday night, but it failed to produce a Kansas City Royals victory as Oakland left-hander Gio Gonzalez and two relievers allowed just five hits in a 3-2 Athletics victory.

Lacey, Rivals.com’s No. 24rated player, is so skilled, “If he goes to Kansas, he will be the leading scorer on that team as a freshman,” Komara said. “I know what he does. He’ll average 18-20 a game.” Lacey is a “natural leader,” Komara said. “He has no fear. If there are three or four minutes to go, you give him the ball to win the game. You want him to have the ball down the stretch. He knows the game. I’ve coached six McDonald’s All-Americans. His basketball IQ is way above any of them,” Komara added. Lacey is at his best in the open floor.

ed to get out there and put on a Royals uniform in front of these fans in Kansas City. It was awesome. “I got here around noon today, so it felt like I was here all day. It seemed like the game went by real fast. I’m glad I can get that debut out of the way and move on from this. I’m def initely never going to forget this day.” Sean O’Sullivan (1-2) went a career-high eight innings, holding the A’s to five hits, but four of the five came right after one another in a threerun fifth inning. “That’s a tough one to lose,

a tough one to swallow,” O’Sullivan said. “If we get one of those ground balls to go right at somebody in the fifth, it’s a different ball game. If a ball goes a foot to the left or a foot to the right it’s a different game.” O’Sullivan had retired 11 in a row entering the fifth. He also retired nine straight after the fifth. “The fifth inning was kind of a hiccup for him, gave up four straight hits,” Royals manager Ned Yost said. “Outside of that, he had some quick innings and could have gone back out in the ninth.” His pitch count (88) was where he could afford it.” Gonzalez (4-2) settled down after allowing Alex Gordon’s homer in the first, holding Kansas City to two runs and four hits. He lasted at least six innings for the sixth time in seven starts. Grant Balfour pitched a hitless eighth and Brian Fuentes finished for his eighth save in 10 opportunities. With two out, Wilson Betemit singled and pinch-runner Jarrod Dyson stole second. But Matt Treanor grounded out to end the game, sending first baseman Conor Jackson to the ground when appeared to run into his arm.

“Say Markieff (Morris) or Thomas Robinson grabbed a rebound and threw it to him ... if Trevor gets it, somebody will have an easy layup or easy shot. There will be no mistakes on that break. The right person will get the ball on that break,” Komara said. “He’s like a smaller version of Magic Johnson. He makes basketball look so simple. Kentucky ... (coach John) Calipari thinks he’s the biggest secret in the class (of 2011).” Alabama and Auburn are working as hard as possible to keep the standout in state. “Trevor Lacey is a great kid.

City squads roll into league swim finals By Ben Ward Journal-World Sports Writer

OLATHE — The Free State High and Lawrence High swim teams had plenty of solid times Friday evening at the preliminary round of the Sunflower League meet. But when the lanes were cleared and many swimmers still lingered about the pool, it was evident that while Friday was important, it’s all about the finals, which start at 1 p.m. today at California Trail Middle School. “I just wanted to get today over with, to be honest,” said FSHS senior Reilly Moore, who easily qualified first in the 100 breaststroke at 1:11.09

for a slot in the championship onds and also dropped three seconds in the 100 backstroke finals today. “(Finals) are really when I to notch a state-qualifying get that fire in my belly and time. “Hopefully you can see get to race the girls I’ve (opposing wanted to race swimmers) the whole sea(Finals) are really arms,” son.” when I get that fire in Odrowski said Annie of h e r v i ew Odrowski had my belly … ” during the a stellar day for backstroke. the Lions, fin- — Free State’s Reilly Moore “ Yo u d o n’ t ishing third in wa n t to s e e the 500 freestyle (5:28.44) and sixth in their feet.” Odrowski also anchored the 100 backstroke (1:03.64) — both of which earned her a two of Lawrence’s relay teams, the fifth-place qualifyslot in today’s finals. Odrowski, who already had ing 200 medley relay team qualified for state in the 500 (with Rachel Buchner, Mallofreestyle, still cut her time in ry Neet and Miranda Rohn), the event by nearly six sec- and the sixth-place 400 free

relay team (with Rohn, Buchner and Neet). Rohn earned two spots in the finals after qualifying third in the 100 backstroke (1:02.50) and sixth in the 200 IM (2:23.45). Moore also qualified fourth in the 50 freestyle at 25.47 for FSHS, and Kara Mishler qualified fourth in the 100 fly at 1:01.86. Only one of the FSHS relay teams reached the finals — the No. 5-qualifying 400 free relay team (Misher, Moore, Morgan Miller and Caroline King) — though the Firebirds’ 200 medley relay team and 200 free relay team each made the consolation finals by qualifying seventh.

father. Michael Hocking put the shot 56 feet, according to his son, as a high school athlete in St. Joseph, Mo., and competed for one year at Missouri State, then known as Southwest Missouri State. Hocking, 17, surpassed his father’s mark for the first time when he pulled off an upset and won the AAU Nationals in Norfolk, Va., last summer. Having a father knowledgeable in his passion was Hocking’s first break. His second: Lawrence High track and field coach Jack Hood’s area of expertise happens to be the throwing events.

“That’s very helpful,” Hocking said. “He’s a great technician.” Hood also has helped Hocking fortify his academic transcript by convincing him to take an advanced-placement history class he teaches, which Hocking said requires at least one hour of studying, seven nights a week. Former LHS thrower Scott Penny, now a medical student throwing the hammer for Kansas University after a three-year career at Oregon, also took the class. Said Hood: “I told them both, ‘You’re big-time athletes who are going to be recruited by big-time schools, and you better be prepared when you get there.’ It’s the hardest class I’ve ever had to prepare for, and for the

students it’s as challenging as anything they’ll do in high school.” During the summer, Hocking and his father traveled as far east as Virginia, as far west as Washington, plus to nearby states Oklahoma, Missouri and Iowa during a summer devoted to weight training, attending clinics and meets, all for the purpose of becoming a better shot putter. Predicted to finish second in the state meet last year, he placed sixth. “That’s been a huge motivator,” he said. The first thing he did was switch his technique from gliding, a more forgiving method, to spinning, which allows for a higher ceiling but is more difficult to execute consistently.

He hit the weights harder than ever. “A lot of the season is already won based on the offseason,” Hocking said. He also knows college coaches dangling scholarships look at more than results: “Do kids look at how they did last year and think they’re going to do better just by sitting around the couch, or do they work hard and get in the weight room when everybody else is at movies or living the good life?” Hocking’s version of living the good life is setting the goal of competing in the Olympics, a la Nieder, and doing everything within his power to make that goal seem more realistic all the time.

securing the regional singles championship in his first season of high school tennis. “It feels awesome,” Irick said. Craig said his ground strokes weren’t sharp enough to win and that he let the wind affect him too much. “That’s the one thing that gets in my head,” Craig said. With the first-place finish, Irick will earn a top seed at the state tournament. He said that didn’t really matter, though. “Anybody can beat anybody at any one time,” Irick said. “I feel as though it’s a great accomplishment, but I don’t mind playing whoever shows up.” The state tournament starts Friday in Topeka at the Kossover Tennis Facility.

day we can go to state, which it what it’s all about.” Schmidt said he was elated that he finally qualified for state. “For a little bit there, I was thinking, ‘Hey, this could be the last time I’ll ever play tennis,’” Schmidt said. Marshall was also proud of the way Irick played. In the singles championship, Irick jumped to an early lead and held on to win the first set. He took a 5-1 lead in the second set, but Craig stormed back to force a tiebreaker. Irick pushed past Craig, ● Results on page 8B

Ethier extends hit streak to 30 The Associated Press

Mets 6, Dodgers 3 NEW YORK — Andre Ethier extended his hitting streak to 30 games, but Jason Pridie’s threerun homer in the sixth inning carried New Ethier York past Los Angeles on Friday. Ethier singled on a 3-0 pitch in the first inning, lining the ball to center to become the first major-league player with a 30-game hitting streak since Washington’s Ryan Zimmerman from April 8 to May 12, 2009. The 29-year-old Ethier was scratched from the starting lineup Wednesday due to an inflamed left elbow. Ethier has the 45th singleseason streak of 30 or more games, the 38th from 1900 on, according to STATS LLC. He is one game shy of the Dodgers record, set by Willie Davis from Aug. 1 to Sept. 3, 1969. Ethier went 3-for-5 and is hitting .397 (46 for 116) during the streak. He has a hit in 31 of 32 games he’s played this season.

The San Francisco Giants honored Willie Mays on his 80th birthday Friday night with a ceremony befitting a baseball legend, complete with a celebratory letter from President Barack Obama and a video tribute that included everyone from Commissioner Bud Selig to singer Tony Bennett. Mays was driven on a golf cart from center field to the mound and received a roaring standing ovation from a sellout crowd of more than 42,000 at AT&T Park. At one point during the montage, Mays was wiping his face and pulling down his old Giants cap.

CHICAGO GUARD DERRICK ROSE (1) GOES TO THE BASKET as Atlanta forward Damien Wilkins, left, Josh Smith, center, and Zaza Pachulia defend. Rose went off for 44 points, and the Bulls beat the Hawks, 99-82, on Friday in Atlanta.

Rose erupts for 44 in Bulls’ win A T L A N T A ( A P ) — Derrick Rose shook off the sore ankle and that shocking loss at home. With his team scuffling through the playoffs, he decided it was time to take matters in his own hands. The Atlanta Hawks never had a chance. Looking every bit like the MVP, Rose sliced up Atlanta for a career-high 44 points as the Bulls seized control of the Eastern Conference semifinals with their best performance of the postseason, romping to a 99-82 victory over the Hawks in Game 3 Friday night. “Derrick was in attack mode, obviously,” coach Tom Thibodeau said. “He was attacking from the start. We needed it to set the tone. When he’s not dancing with the ball and he’s attacking, he’s impossible to stop.” You’ll get no argument from the Hawks. “He’s tough to cover anyway,” said Jeff Teague, who had the futile task of trying to guard Rose much of the night. “But when his jump shot is falling, he’s the MVP.”

The Bulls lead the series 21, putting Atlanta in must-win position heading into Game 4 Sunday night. Rose was dominant from the opening tip, slashing into the lane for a basket that prompted Atlanta to call a timeout before game was a minute old. He finished off the Hawks midway through the fourth with back-to-back three-pointers, hopping down the court, serenaded by chants of “MVP! MVP!” from

a hefty contingent of Bulls fans. “Just attacking the whole game,” Rose said. “That was my whole thought process.” Teague was about the only highlight for Atlanta, scoring 21 points. That wasn’t nearly enough against the D-Rose onslaught. He made 16 of 27 shots from the field, including four threes. He dished out seven assists, grabbed five rebounds, came up with a steal — heck, he even blocked a shot. He was moving so fast, the Hawks seemed to be standing still at times. MVP, indeed. “Of course, I love the award,” Rose said. “But I’m glad to get that over with and just focus on basketball.” “They beat us up,” Atlanta coach Larry Drew said. “They completely beat us up.”

DALLAS (AP) — Dirk Nowitzki scored 32 points, Jason Terry had 23, and Peja Stojakovic scored 11 of his 15 in the fourth quarter, rallying the Dallas Mavericks to a 98-92 victory over the Los Angeles Lakers on Friday night that puts the two-time defending champions on the brink of elimination. Dallas trailed by seven points with 5:05 left and was getting shredded inside by a new-look Lakers lineup featuring three big men. The Mavs hadn’t led since late in the second quarter and a record crowd was turning silent. Then Nowitzki hit a three-pointer and Stojakovic followed with another, bringing the team and the crowd to life. An 18-6 rally followed, turning around the game and possibly sealing the series. The Mavericks lead 3-0, and no team in NBA history has ever lost after taking such a lead. Dallas will go for the sweep at home Sunday. It’s hard to count out a group that includes Kobe Bryant and is coached by Phil Jackson, the winner of a record 11 titles, especially with Los Angeles having won the last two championships and with the added incentive of Jackson headed to retirement. Yet the Lakers have only themselves to blame. They blew a 16-point lead in the opener, got routed at home the next game and now have this flop at the finish. The meltdown included a play where Bryant threw a pass to Pau Gasol, but Gasol expected him to shoot and was looking at the rim. The ball hit him in the back, creating a turnover plucked by Dallas. On the Lakers’ next possession, Bryant came up short on a long jumper to beat the shot clock, leading to a pair of free throws by Nowitzki that put the Mavericks ahead for the first time since the final minutes of the first half. Dallas simply played better — and smarter — down the stretch. When Los Angeles

DALLAS FORWARD DIRK NOWITZKI THROWS DOWN a dunk against Los Angeles in the first half. The Mavericks defeated the Lakers, 98-92, on Friday in Dallas. regained the lead at 89-88, the Mavericks worked the ball to Terry in the corner for a goahead three-pointer. Lamar Odom answered with a flick shot over Stojakovic to tie it at 91 with 1:39 left, but that would be it for the Lakers. Nowitzki made a tough, left-handed hook shot over two defenders, then ran back up the court snarling and with the lead. Odom missed another flick shot over Stojakovic, with defensive help from Tyson Chandler, and Dallas got an extended possession when Chandler reached between two Lakers to knock a rebound to Terry in the corner. The Lakers resorted to fouls and wild shots to try coming back, an ugly way for a team that’s been so good for so long to go out — or, at least, get really close to starting its summer vacation. With Ron Artest suspended, Jackson started the 6-foot10 Odom at small forward. He and Andrew Bynum dominated inside, setting a tone that served Los Angeles well. The Lakers used an 11-2 stretch just before halftime to take a lead at the break that it would hold

Hannah because she gave her greatest gift back to God she gave birth to a boy she named Samuel. Hannah kept Samuel at home until he was fully weaned then delivered Samuel to the priest in keeping with her promise. (1 Samuel 1) Samuel grew up serving God and went on to become both a mighty prophet and the last judge of the nation of Israel. He played a pivotal role in all the spiritual and political events of that nation. Before his Taylor death, he anointed the boy David who would someday be the greatest Old Testament King of Israel.

The relationship between Hannah and Samuel stands out the most honors her promises to God, even after knowing what childlessness feels like, by giving Samuel up to God. This task, often forgotten or glossed over, is one of the most difficult in the Bible. Hannah offers a place for many women to see their own stories played out, mothers or not. She highlights the awesome power and responsibility in motherhood and the mixture of joy and pain that is ever-present. Her story can Newberg Gale assure us that we are not alone, that a long line of women surrounds us during our difficulties. Around the

world this day there are women struggling with issues of barrenness, facing difficult choices, or waiting for someone to answer their prayers. Mothers are not just the people who give birth to a child. They are the ones who make incredibly diff icult decisions, even agreeing to let children go, in the best interests of the child. They are the ones who open their hearts and arms to become family for children who have none. They are the people who love and care for the children in their classrooms, their after school programs, their churches and their communities.

It all started with a woman who wanted desperately to become a mother. Eventually she realized that the only way this was going to happen was for God to do a miracle in her life. But it didn’t end there. Because she was given the desire of her heart, she demonstrated her gratefulness by giving her son back to God. Was she a bad mother? I don’t believe so. She simply gave her greatest gift back to the one she loved the most.

The Rev. Mary Newberg Gale, associate pastor, First Presbyterian Church, 2415 Clinton Parkway: How can one choose a single parent-child relationship from the wealth of human experience depicted in the Bible? That is a difficult task. For me, the relationship between Hannah and Samuel stands out the most. Hannah, one of many women in scripture who struggles with childlessness, faces the shame and ridicule, the sadness and isolation that women around the world feel at this moment. After a long struggle, including prayers and bargainings with God, Hannah receives the very thing her heart longs for — a son. She names him Samuel, which means, “I have asked him of the Lord.” Hannah

MEETINGS AND GATHERINGS

What mother-child relationship in the Bible stands out most to you besides the relationship of Jesus and Mary? The Rev. Paul Taylor, associate pastor, Mustard Seed Church, 700 Wakarusa Road: The story of a Jewish woman named Hannah and her son Samuel is compelling. For years, Hannah had been unable to become pregnant. It tormented her to the point where she couldn’t eat and was beside herself with grief. She went to the temple to pray and tearfully poured out her deep longing to God. She vowed that if God would give her a son, she would dedicate him to God for lifelong service. The priest on duty was watching her pray and initially misinterpreted her sorrow for drunkenness and scolded her. But after Hannah explained the situation, he blessed her and, sure enough,

Essay stresses safe driving for teenagers

“Dead at Seventeen” by John Berrio

Agony claws my mind. I am a statistic. When I first got here I felt very much alone. I was overwhelmed by grief, and I expected to find sympathy. I found no sympathy. I saw only thousands of others whose bodies were as badly mangled as mine. I was given a number and placed in a category. The category was called “Traffic Fatalities.” The day I died was an ordinary school day. How I wish I had taken the bus! But I was too cool for the bus. I remember how I wheedled the car out of Mom. “Special favor,” I pleaded. “All the kids drive.” When the 2:50 p.m. bell rang, I threw my books in the locker ... free until tomorrow morning! I ran to the parking lot, excited at the thought of driving a car and being my own boss.

Why did they have to see me like this? Why did I have to look at Mom’s eyes when she faced the most terrible ordeal of her life? Dad suddenly looked very old. He told the man in charge, “Yes, he’s our son.” The funeral was weird. I saw all my relatives and friends walk toward the casket. They looked at me with the saddest eyes I’ve ever seen. Some of my buddies were crying. A few of the girls anniesmailbox@comcast.net touched my hand and sobbed as they walked by. Please, someIt doesn’t matter how the acci- body — wake me up! Get me out dent happened. I was goofing off of here. I can’t bear to see Mom — going too fast, taking crazy and Dad in such pain. My grandchances. But I was enjoying my parents are so weak from grief freedom and having fun. The last thing I remember was passing an old lady who seemed to be going awfully slow. I heard a crash and felt a terrific jolt. Glass and steel flew everywhere. My whole body seemed to be turning inside out. I heard myself scream. Suddenly, I awakened. It was very quiet. A police officer was standing over me. I saw a doctor. My body was mangled. I was saturated with blood. Pieces of jagged glass were sticking out all over. Strange that I couldn’t feel anything. Hey, don’t pull that sheet over my head. I can’t be dead. I’m only 17. I’ve got a date tonight. I’m supposed to have a wonderful life ahead of me. I haven’t lived yet. I can’t be dead. Later I was placed in a drawer. My folks came to identify me.

Free spirit meets three kids in Hallmark’s ‘3 weeks’ As I like to remind myself, I am the luckiest man alive. I have a wife who thinks Valentine’s Day is insufferably lame and a mother who hates Mother’s Day. The battle-tested matriarch of a family of seven children and a battalion of grand and great-grandchildren, she always dismissed the holiday as a phony corporate shill, a racket run by greetingcard companies. Happy Mother’s Day, Mom! Speaking of greeting-card companies, the Hallmark Channel celebrates Mother’s Day a night early with “3 Weeks, 3 Kids” (8 p.m., Hallmark). Anna Chlumsky stars as Jennifer, a spunky designer too footloose to commit to a boyfriend, a job or adulthood. Her free spirit is tested when circumstances conspire to have her take care of three children for a few weeks while her over-responsible sister and her husband enjoy a long-postponed honeymoon. True to formula, Jennifer’s sojourn in suburbia is enhanced by the presence of a hunky new neighbor, sent by the script-writing gods to convey the message that life as a soccer mom, even a surrogate soccer mom, isn’t all hardship. ● Confronted with the concert documentary “Lady Gaga Presents the Monster Ball Tour: At Madison Garden” (8 p.m., HBO) I took solace in the fact that I am not a music critic. As spectacles go, this seems like creative leftovers that have been moldering in Madonna’s refrigerator for a decade or three. ● On that note, let us consider “My Cat From Hell” (8 p.m., Animal Planet). Behaviorist Jackson Galaxy (I’m not making that up!) hosts a three-part lesson in understanding the problems and motivations of difficult kitties, the kind that drive away friends and boyfriends. Tonight’s other highlights ● NASCAR action (6 p.m., Fox). ● Daisy’s dangerous past resurfaces on “Chase” (7 p.m., NBC). ● The Celtics host the Heat in NBA playoff action (7:15 p.m., ABC). ● The TARDIS is marooned at sea in the 17th century on “Doctor Who” (7 p.m., BBC America). ● Richard Grieco stars in the can’t-myth knock-off “Almighty Thor” (8 p.m., ScFy, TV-14). ● Angelina Jolie stars in the 2010 thriller “Salt” (8 p.m., Starz). ● Scheduled on “48 Hours Mystery” (9 p.m., CBS): Detectives comb a social network in search of a killer. ● Tina Fey hosts “Saturday Night Live” (10:30 p.m., NBC), featuring musical guest Ellie Goulding. Cult choice Jack Nicholson departs from many of his usual tricks to powerfully portray a visionary and corrupt union boss in the 1992 biopic “Hoffa” (7 p.m., Fox Movie Channel).

they can barely walk. My brother and sister are like zombies. They move like robots. In a daze. Everybody. No one can believe this. I can’t believe it, either. Please, don’t bury me! I’m not dead! I have a lot of living to do! I want to laugh and run again. I want to sing and dance. Please don’t put me in the ground! I promise if you give me just one more chance, God, I’ll be the most careful driver in the whole world. All I want is one more chance. Please, God, I’m only 17.

Dear Annie: You recently printed a “Contract for Drivers,” by John Violette. It requires teenage drivers to maintain decent grades, follow all traffic laws and never drive impaired or get in the car with a driver who is. It reminded me of the essay “Dead at 17,” which relates what happens when kids don’t follow those rules. Every year there are new teenage drivers who haven’t seen it. Please print it again. — Chicago Mom of Three
