Former associate A.D. seeks 57 months in prison Kirtland is highest ranking official convicted in tickets scam By Mark Fagan firstname.lastname@example.org
Ben Kirtland wants to be sentenced to 57 months in prison, asks to be held responsible for paying $1.2 million in restitution to his former employer and sup-
ports being ordered to pay another $85,090 to the IRS for unpaid taxes on ill-gotten gains from a ticket-stealing-and-selling conspiracy conducted from within Kansas Athletics Inc. Later this week, he’ll find out if U.S. District Judge Wesley
Brown agrees. Kirtland, former associate athletic director for development, is asking Brown to impose the penalties outlined in a presentence report, a report that Kirtland and his attorney, Robin Fowler, have noted that prosecu-
tors also have agreed to support. Kirtland’s sentencing is set for 10 a.m. Thursday in Wichita. “Ben Kirtland understands that all of the harsh consequences described above are self-inflicted, and the fault of no one other than himself,” Fowler wrote in a sentencing memo. “He has looked in the mirror and

A MOTHER FOX AND HER KITS, three of whom are seen here, recently made a home near the Lecompton Historical Society.
Mom makes den in heart of town By Brenna Hawley email@example.com
A new family of seven has taken up residence near the Lecompton Historical Society. Their home is made of stone, which provides comfortable shelter. Most evenings, the children come out to play. The family of red foxes was first spotted Easter weekend playing by large slabs of rock
next to a building. Since then, Lecompton residents have seen them out both morning and evening. Paul Bahnmaier, president of the Lecompton Historical Society, said the mother fox will lie on one of the slabs and watch as her kits play. “What I find odd is it’s an area that’s mowed and well-kept,” he said. The foxes don’t seem bothered by loud noises and barely flinch when
cars go by on the nearby road. But there is concern for people’s safety, so it’s best not to approach the den. Tim Rues, administrator at Constitution Hall, said third- and seventhgraders from Mater Dei Catholic School in Topeka visited Lecompton last week and discovered feathers around the den. On closer investigation, they found a turkey claw, indicating the foxes had likely had a
feast that day. “The students really liked seeing where the foxes lived,” Rues said. If the foxes are disturbed too often, the mother fox will likely move the den. But for at least a few weeks, the family made its home in historic Lecompton under some historic 1880s limestone curbs.

Concerns arise about China’s crackdown President Barack Obama and top members of his administration raised pointed concerns Monday about Beijing’s recent security crackdown on democracy advocates during the first day of high-level talks between the two nations. Obama, meeting with the leaders of a large official Chinese delegation, voiced his concerns about the situation in China, the White House said in a statement. The president “underscored his support for the universal human rights of freedom of expression and worship and of access to information and political participation,” the White House said in a statement after Obama’s meeting with Vice Premier Wang Qishan and State Councilor Dai Bingguo. 1 | WASHINGTON, D.C.
Lawrence native helps restrain man on flight By Tom Keegan email@example.com
Bill Nieder, Olympic gold medalist in the shot put, Lawrence native and graduate of Kansas University, told the Journal-World on Monday that he was on a Sunday night flight from Chicago to San Francisco on which a man caused an uproar, screaming “God is Great!” in Arabic and pounding on the cockpit door. Nieder said he helped to bring down the man, later identified
as Rageh Almurisi of Vallejo, Calif., who spread terror on the American Airlines flight. “I was one of three guys who threw him down, but I’ve had problems with my hip, so I wasn’t one of the ones holding him down,” Nieder said. “Three guys were holding him down until the flight landed. He was well taken care of. I went back to my seat to sit down and his head was under my seat.” Nieder, 77, and his wife, Sharon, were returning from a four-month cruise around the

FDIC chairwoman to leave position Sheila Bair is stepping down as chairwoman of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. this summer, ending a five-year term in which she helped craft the government’s response to the 2008 financial crisis. Bair, a Kansas University alumna, will leave her post as one of the top banking regulators on July 8, the FDIC said Monday. She was among the first officials to raise concerns about the explosion of high-risk lending to borrowers with bad credit. Under her tenure, the agency closed the most banks since the savings and loan crisis. That included Washington Mutual, the nation’s largest bank failure.

Gingrich joins 2012 presidential race Newt Gingrich, the House speaker who led a national GOP resurgence in the 1990s before facing ethics questions and resigning, is running for president. Gingrich’s announcement, made on social networking websites Monday, came after months of public flirting with a bid. He enters a slow-to-form GOP presidential field that has left some Republicans craving more options as they search for a nominee strong enough to credibly challenge President Barack Obama.

Combat stirs deadlocked front line Rebels battled Moammar Gadhafi’s forces on a deadlocked front line in eastern Libya and welcomed the first supply ship in five days to reach the besieged western port city of Misrata. Overnight, at least five NATO air strikes targeted Tripoli, sending plumes of smoke over the Libyan capital, and several sharp explosions could be heard. One strike targeted a government building, but it was not immediately clear what the other four strikes hit. On the front line, heavy fighting was reported south of Ajdabiya, a rebel-held town about 90 miles south of Benghazi, the rebel headquarters in the east.

Samoa planning to shift date line Samoa plans to leap 24 hours into the future, erasing a day and putting a new kink in the Pacific’s jagged international date line so that it can be on the same weekday as Australia, New Zealand and eastern Asia. It’ll be back to the future for the island nation, offsetting a decision it made 119 years ago to stay behind a day and align itself with U.S. traders based in California. Samoa has found its interests lying more with the Asia-Pacific region and now wants to switch back to the west side of the line, which separates one calendar day from the next and runs roughly north-tosouth through the middle of the Pacific Ocean.

Man shot last week faces Babcock Place without air conditioning robbery, burglary charges Pipes in new system not expected to cool down until Wednesday ——————
By Shawn Linenberger email@example.com
A Leavenworth County man who suffered a gunshot wound last week now faces robbery and burglary charges in Wyandotte County. Lt. George Collins with the Bonner Springs Police Department said Monday that the wounded man was one of four facing charges stemming from an attempted burglary about 10 p.m. last Tuesday near the Wyandotte-Leavenworth county line. The homeowner shot at one of the four men who allegedly attempted to break into his home, Collins said. Collins declined to specify which of the four men allegedly involved in the incident was shot. Three of the men, Dustin M.
Coleman, 18, Bonner Springs, and Jeremiah L. Smith, 22, and Dennis R. Musick, 23, both of Tonganoxie, were not listed as patients at Kansas University Hospital on Monday. A hospital official said he could neither confirm nor deny that the fourth man — Jason A. Marks, 24, Tonganoxie — was a patient. All four men are charged with conspiracy to commit robbery, attempted aggravated robbery and aggravated burglary. An investigation into the shooting began after a wounded man was dropped off at his father’s Tonganoxie home by three other men. The father took his son to a Tonganoxie ambulance station, and he then was taken to KU Hospital.

Virginia McClelland sat in the shade outside Babcock Place on a windy Monday afternoon as the temperature rose above 90 degrees, Lawrence’s hottest day in 2011. Monday’s distinction may end today with 93 degrees in the forecast, according to the National Weather Service. And apartment residents at Babcock Place, 1700 Mass., aren’t expected to have air conditioning until Wednesday at the earliest. McClelland said the warmer temperatures don’t bother her much because she’s usually cold, but it seemed to be the talk of the building on Monday. “Everybody’s been hollering, ‘it’s hot,’” said McClelland, who has lived in the Lawrence Douglas County Housing Authority apartment build— Tonganoxie Mirror news editor Shawn ing for about a year.

Everybody’s been hollering, ‘it’s hot.’” — Babcock Place resident Virginia McClelland subsidized housing to elderly and lowincome people. Executive Director Shannon Oury said the building recently had a new chiller and boiler system installed as part of a energy performance contract as a way to make the building more energy-efficient. But it will take 48 hours for the water in the pipes to cool. Oury said they had the heat on in the building last week when temperatures were in the 40s, and they appeared to be at the mercy of fluctuating Kansas temperatures. Oury said Babcock staff members did go door-to-door Monday trying to encourage residents to turn on the fan systems in their rooms and open balcony windows to get increased air flow.
Housing authority officials were also working with the new system’s contractor Monday. Belinda Rehmer, a Lawrence Memorial Hospital spokeswoman, said Monday evening the LMH emergency department didn’t have to handle any heat-related patients in Lawrence during the day. Jacquie Higuera, a Babcock resident for more than a year, left her apartment late Monday afternoon to seek the comfort of air conditioning at her daughter’s house. Higuera said she didn’t remember hot temperatures approaching as abruptly last year. “The weather’s very unpredictable,” she said. McClelland said while several residents were complaining she was trying to stay positive. “We’ll get some cold water,” McClelland said, “and put our feet in it.” — Reporter George Diepenbrock can be reached at 8327144.

I noticed on Friday the U.S. flag wasn’t flying at the post office at Seventh and Vermont streets, so I went in and told them. They said they would do something about it but never did. There also wasn’t a flag flying Saturday. Has the post office stopped or is there some other reason the flag hasn’t been flying?
According to Judy Raney, postmaster, it was an oversight, likely because some employees were covering for others and didn’t realize it was part of their duties. Raney said the post office would check on the flag each morning. Any problems should be reported to her.

Alcohol and inattentive driving are listed as contributing factors in a one-vehicle accident that injured a 61-year-old Baldwin City man late Saturday night north of Baldwin City, according to an accident report. According to the Douglas County Sheriff’s office, Claude Chappelle was injured when his southbound Mazda pickup truck struck a ditch at 11:40 p.m. Saturday in the 500 block of County Road 1055, north of Baldwin City. Chappelle, the driver and only occupant of the Mazda pickup truck, was listed in serious condition Monday at Kansas University Hospital in Kansas City, Kan., a hospital spokesman said. He was flown there via a LifeStar helicopter ambulance from the Vinland airport. Sgt. Steve Lewis, a sheriff’s spokesman, said witnesses who stopped to assist Chappelle saw a northbound Cadillac strike the truck near the back bumper because the bed of the truck was in the road after the initial crash. Witnesses said the driver stopped, assessed the damage to his vehicle and then drive away to the north. Officers have not located the Cadillac or its driver, Lewis said. • Derek J.

Kansas Senate approves STREET compromise pension bill ON THE By Nick Nelson

How often do you buy organic groceries?
TOPEKA — The Kansas Senate approved a proposal on Monday for attacking the long-term funding problems facing the state pension system without starting a 401(k)style plan for new teachers and government workers. The 31-7 vote sent the bill to the House, where a vote was expected today. The House’s approval would send the measure to Gov. Sam Brownback. But legislative leaders weren’t sure the House would approve the compromise proposal, because most members of its Republican majority favor moving the state toward a 401(k)-style retirement plan for public employees. The House’s rejection would require it to reopen negotiations with the GOP-controlled Senate over pensions legislation. The Kansas P ublic Employees Retirement System projects a gap of $7.7 billion between its anticipated revenues and benefits promised to teachers, judges, police, fire fighters and other government workers through 2033. The compromise bill boosts the state’s annual contributions to the Kansas Public Employees Retirement System, starting in July 2013, phasing in a $28 million annual increase over four years. It requires public employees to choose between paying a higher percentage of their salaries toward their retirement benefits and having their future benefits cut. It sets up a commission to study whether the state should move toward a 401(k)-style plan. “This is only a partial solution to the problem plaguing KPERS, but it is a vital partial solution,” said Sen. Jeff King, an Independence Republican who was his chamber’s lead negotiator on pension legislation.

Associated Press Writer
Reaching compromise The House had approved a
bill that would have mandated a new 401(k)-style plan for teachers and government workers hired after June 2013. Other employees could have joined the new plan or faced a cut in their future benefits. The Senate approved a plan to set up the study commission, with legislators voting next year on the panel’s recommendations. The compromise — preserving the study commission — emerged from negotiations between three senators and three House members, and it had bipartisan support in the Senate. But some Republicans argued that the state should be more aggressive about moving toward a 401(k)-style plan for public employees. House GOP leaders didn’t know going into today’s vote whether such sentiments would doom the compromise plan. House Pensions and Benefits Committee Chairman Mitch Holmes said he’s heard some grumbling but can’t say how widespread it is. Supporters of moving to a 401(k)-style plan contend the state can’t sustain traditional KPERS plans, which guarantee benefits up front based on a worker’s salary and years of service. They argue that until benefits are based on investment earnings, as they are in a 401(k) plan, each new employee adds to the pension system’s long-term funding problem. Sen. Dick Kelsey, a Goddard Republican, called the traditional plans “dinosaurs.” “We’re not stepping up to the plate and facing the real issue,” Kelsey said.
Strong opposition But public employee groups and Democrats strongly oppose such a move, fearing it will make retirement benefits less lucrative and less secure. They argue that the retirement system has problems because the state has shorted its annual contributions for too many years. Senate GOP leaders argued
Charges filed against 2 Franklin County men Douglas County prosecutors Monday alleged two Franklin County men were armed with an Uzi during a February robbery of a Lawrence resident. Prosecutors filed aggravated robbery and kidnapping charges against Trenton T. Rowsey, 19, of Ottawa, and Mikael D. Englund, 22, of Richmond, in connection with a Feb. 4 incident in which a Lawrence man alleged two people held him at gunpoint at his residence in the 800 block of Hilltop Drive and stole marijuana, cash and an iPod from the residence. Prosecutors also charged Englund in connection to a March 14 incident in which the same victim alleged several people robbed him with a handgun at the residence and stole a laptop computer and Xbox video game system.
Prosecutors also accused Englund of striking the victim in the face and threatening the man against telling police about it. Englund faces charges of aggravated robbery, aggravated burglary, aggravated battery and aggravated intimidation of a victim in connection with that case. Rowsey and Englund were scheduled to appear before a judge Monday afternoon. Englund was arrested Friday in Ottawa, and Rowsey was arrested there later and brought to Douglas County Saturday. Lawrence police have said a juvenile is also in custody as a suspect. A judge Monday kept bond for both men at $75,000, cash or surety. Both men are scheduled to appear in court again May 19.
that a study is prudent and will allow legislators to pull public employee representatives and business leaders with expertise in pensions into the debate. Also, a recent KPERS report said a 401(k)-style plan would have startup costs, slowing efforts to close the long-term funding gap and costing the state and local governments an additional $1.2 billion in contributions to KPERS through 2033. “I think we get out with the least damage possible,” said Rep. Louis Ruiz, a Kansas City Democrat who helped negotiate the compromise. Brownback, a Republican who took office in January, favors moving toward a 401(k)-style plan for new public employees, and he’s expressed confidence that it will happen. He said in an April 21st interview with The Associated Press that he expects any study to recommend at least a new “hybrid” plan giving new hires the option of joining a 401(k)style plan. Brownback would appoint five of the study commission’s 13 members, and legislative leaders, the other eight. House Speaker Mike O’Neal, a Hutchinson Republican, would have two appointees — giving him and Brownback a majority of the appointments. Senate Minority Leader Anthony Hensley, a Topeka Democrat, said supporters of a 401(k)-style plan should take comfort in the makeup of the commission. Yet he voted for the compromise bill, calling it reasonable.

KCC taking comments on Westar rate increase Staff Reports
The Kansas Corporation Commission is holding a public hearing today for people with comments or questions on a proposal to increase electricity bills to pay for upgrades to a Kansas power plant. To meet current and pending environmental regulations, Kansas City Power & Light has to make $1.23 billion in upgrades to two of its coalfired units in La Cygne. While the billion-dollar price tag is enough to grab your attention, Westar customers should take particular note because they will help pay for it. Westar has a 50 percent share in the La Cygne power plant, which means it will be responsible for footing half of the bill. To recover the cost of the upgrades, Westar predicts that the average residential customer’s bill will increase by almost $4 a month by the years 2017 and 2018. It will then gradually decrease to $1.50 a month over a 20-year period. Before electric bills go up, the Kansas Corporation Commission must f irst
approve the rate changes. KCP&L already has filed a petition to boost rates and Westar has filed testimony in support of KCP&L’s request. Westar customers will have the chance to hear KCP&L and Westar’s proposal, ask questions and make comments from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. today at the Kansas Corporation Commission, 1500 SW Arrowhead Road, Topeka. The public hearing will also be accessible by video conference in Wichita and Salina. For more information on KCP&L’s petition, go to the KCC’s website, kcc.state.ks.us. And for those who can’t attend today’s hearing, public comments can still be made by email, at email@example.com; by phone, 1-800-662-0027; or by mail at: Kansas Corporation Commission Office of Public Affairs and Consumer Protection 1500 SW Arrowhead Road Topeka, KS 66604-4027. Comments will be accepted through June 8, and KCC will make a decision on or before Aug. 22.

He described the arch as an architectural “tip of the hat” to the Lions’ decades of gridiron dominance at Haskell Stadium in southeast Lawrence, where the Lions walked through the iconic Haskell arch for home games on their way to league and state titles. Now, two years after opening their own on-campus stadium, a new arch is set to take shape. The booster group has contracted with B.A. Green Construction, of Lawrence, to build the arch, include a ticket booth and enhance the scoreboard — complete with a full-color Chesty Lion carved into stone and facing 19th Street — at the stadium used for football and track. B.A. Green also will add ticket booths and stone signs at soccer, baseball and softball fields, all as the company is busy installing districtfinanced spectator seating. Work is set to begin soon after Lawrence High’s graduation May 29 and be completed by the time school starts again in the fall. “We’re touching all of the outdoor facilities — all of the venues,” Gaston told board members. Scott Morgan, whose children have attended Lawrence High, described the effort to bring LHS Building on Traditions to fruition as “a struggle,” but a worthwhile one. That’s because the fields aren’t about “glorifying the star” of athletics. Instead, he said, the fields and the overall context they represent indicate a community commitment to students of all abilities. “It’s showing respect for our kids,” Morgan said. On-campus football stadiums were opened in the fall of 2009 at both Lawrence and Free State high schools, using

DISTRICT LEASES WAREHOUSE Members of the Lawrence school board agreed Monday to lease a 12,000-square-foot warehouse near Walmart and Home Depot, a move to help the district save at least $100,000 in annual expenses by purchasing canned fruits, cleaning supplies and copy paper by the truckload instead of smaller quantities. The district will pay $4.20 per square foot, or $4,200 a month, to lease the building at 1811 W. 31st St. The lease rate is nearly 30 percent less than the rate that had been advertised by the building’s owner. While the lease will be paid money left over from a bond issue. A planned $400,000 concessions/locker rooms/restrooms building at Free State ultimately was augmented by donations totaling $600,000, paying for expansion, landscaping and upgraded materials. Lawrence High donors soon went to work, and in September 2009 formed LHS Building on Traditions. Since then they have raised nearly $300,000, including at least $1,000 from each of 48 donors whose names will grace a plaque to be affixed to the new arch. The list could expand up until and including June 30, the deadline for $1,000 donations, said Judy Keller, a lead
through the district’s Food Services Department, the ability to buy items in bulk will allow the district to save money on other items as well, including those assigned to the district’s General Fund.

Keith Wilson as principal for the Lawrence Virtual School. ● Agreed to buy two delivery trucks and two pickup trucks (which also are used for plowing snow), from Laird Noller Automotive, for a total of $102,508.

Multiple agencies were searching Monday afternoon for a suspect in a car chase in southwestern Leavenworth County. Officers from Tonganoxie police, Leavenworth County and the Kansas Highway Patrol were searching, and a Kansas Highway Patrol helicopter circled the area, which is covered with dense woods and has few roads. The site is northeast of 262nd Street and Loring Road. According to Leavenworth County Undersheriff Ron Cranor, officers pursued a suspect in a car to the area. The suspect later ditched the car.

Officers questioned neighbors and searched at least one property in the area. Gaston said that the donors’ efforts would help “put a great face on Lawrence High,” both by using materials that fit with the stadium’s new press box and by drawing a cohesive link to the school itself. Past decades of Lions’ pride — whether it came at Haskell Stadium, or inside 1901 La. — promise to endure anew, thanks to donors using tradition as their foundation. “These aren’t inexpensive structures,” Gaston said. “They are going to be built to last.” — Schools reporter Mark Fagan can be reached at 832-7188.
BRIEFLY Wren lawsuit against fraternity dismissed A Douglas County judge on Friday formally dismissed a 2009 lawsuit over the alcohol poisoning death of a Kansas University Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity pledge after the parties reached a confidential settlement last month. According to court records, District Judge Michael Malone dismissed Jay COURTS Wren’s lawsuit against the Sigma Alpha Epsilon chapter, its national association, the local housing corporation and its president and some chapter members. Wren’s son, Jason, a 19-yearold freshman from Littleton, Colo., was found dead March 8, 2009, at the Sigma Alpha Epsilon chapter house, 1301 West Campus Road, after a night of heavy drinking. On April 5 the parties in a statement said the case had been resolved to the satisfaction of all sides without providing any specific details about the resolution. The parties did acknowledge that the Jason Wren Initiative, an annual seminar on the KU campus aimed at providing education about underage drinking, would continue. Court personnel said that Malone dismissed the case at the request of the parties but that no other details were filed.

Free State senior is Presidential Scholar A senior at Free State High School is among 141 students
nationwide and abroad to earn designation as a U.S. Presidential Scholar for 2011. Victoria Gilman earned the honor that goes to students who have “demonstrated outstanding academic achievement, artistic excellence, leadership, citizenship, service, and contribution to school and community,” according to the U.S. Department of Education. The selections are made by the White House Commission on Presidential Scholars, a group appointed by the president. Gilman and her fellow 140 scholars were identified from among 3 million students expected to graduate this year from U.S. high schools. Gilman will be honored June 18-21 in Washington. One of her teachers — Andrew Nussbaum, who teaches social studies — also will be expected to make the trip, to receive a Teacher Recognition Award.
KU student reports battery in dorm room A Kansas University student at McCollum Hall was treated at the hospital early Sunday with minor injuries after a battery incident in the student’s dorm room, according to the KU Public Safety Office. Capt. Schuyler Bailey, a public safety spokesman, said that the student suffered a “puncture wound” made by an unknown object and that officers were still investigating the incident, which occurred about 5 a.m. Sunday in the student’s fifth-floor room. The student let an unknown man into his room, and during an altercation the victim received the wound in his left bicep. The suspect was described as a white man, 6 feet tall, wearing a blue hooded sweatshirt and a dark-colored baseball cap. The incident was initially classified as an aggravated burglary and aggravated battery, but a KU crime alert sent out Monday classified it as an aggravated battery. In a crime alert, KU officers advised students to lock their doors even when they’re inside their rooms, to not allow any unidentified people into residence halls and to be responsible for guests brought into the residence hall. Anyone with information about the case is asked to call the public safety office at 785-
864-5900 or KU Crime Stoppers at 864-8888. McCollum Hall is KU’s largest dormitory on Daisy Hill near 15th and Iowa streets.
Sprint Foundation gives $1M to Cancer Center A $1 million gift from the Sprint Foundation will establish a professorship in bloodrelated cancers at the Kansas University Cancer Center.

The cancer center hopes to raise an additional $9 million before it applies for the designation in September. The Sprint Foundation hematology/oncology professor will lead a team of physician scientists in cancer research and patient care.
Bob Billings Parkway to be repaved Bob Billings Parkway is on the list of major city streets that will be under construction this summer. The city is set to bid a reconstruction of the portion of Bob Billings Parkway from Kasold Drive to Crestline Drive. The city only will rebuild the westbound lanes this summer. The project will consist of ripping out all the pavement — the sidewalks and curb and gutter will stay — and replacing it with a new road base and 12 inches of asphalt. Construction is expected to begin in June and to last through early August.

Remains found of boy killed in December accident City pool gets ready B U R L I N G T O N ( AP ) — After more than five months of waiting, the mother of an 11year-old boy who disappeared after a boating accident on an eastern Kansas reservoir said she is relieved and grateful that her son’s body has been found. The remains of Jeremy Jenkins were found Saturday near John Redmond Reservoir. After dental records were used to positively identify him, Coffey County authorities notified his mother, Shelly Jenkins. Jeremy had been missing since Dec. 4, when the bodies
of his father, Jason Jenkins, and uncle, Clint Yeager, were found near a capsized boat on the reservoir, where the three had been duck hunting. They were all from the Neosho Rapids area. “I got the best Mother’s Day gift anybody could get,” Shelley Jenkins told The Emporia Gazette. “I guess the hard part was going through the steps of them telling you they have to identify your kid through dental records.” Several searches for the boy were conducted, and the U.S. Army Corps of Engi-
neers lowered the water level on the reservoir in January. But it wasn’t until Saturday when people riding ATVs who had known Jeremy all his life found the remains. “I’m sure it’s very hard for them, but I’m so thankful they were there and called it in and did what they had to do,” Jenkins said. “I would like to thank everybody who took their own precious time, the volunteers who searched and was dedicated to make sure we brought him home. It’s just amazing what the community has done to step
up to make sure he was found.” One of the most dedicated searchers was Scott Thomas, a close friend of the Jenkins and Yeager families, who said Clint Yeager was like a son to him. He went to the reservoir nearly every day for more than five months to search for Jeremy. “We just weren’t going to give up,” Thomas said. “Whatever it took. I really felt somebody had to keep looking for him.” Jenkins said she wasn’t sure if services would be held for Jeremy.

Ex-KU leader earns honorary doctorate Staff Reports
Gene Budig, former Kansas University chancellor, was awarded an honorary doctorate from The Citadel, the military college of South Carolina, this past weekend. Budig gave the commencement address at the university, which is in Charleston, S.C.
“It’s a big deal for a retired two-star,” said Budig, who is a retired major general of the Air National Guard/U.S. Air Force. Budig is a graduate of the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and former president o f ba s e ba l l ’s A m e r i c a n League. He presently is a distinguished professor at
the College Board in New York City. In addition to having been KU chancellor from 1980 to 1984, Budig also led Illinois State University and West Virginia University. He and his wife, Gretchen, reside in Charleston. He is co-owner of the Charleston RiverDogs, the Class A base-
ball farm team of the New York Yankees. Budig writes a column that appears periodically in the Jour- Budig nal-World.
Officials investigate flight disturbance suspect By Terry Collins and Marcus Wohlsen Associated Press Writers
SAN FRANCISCO — The passengers sat stunned as they watched a man walk quickly toward the front of American Airlines Flight 1561 as it was descending toward San Francisco. He was screaming and then began pounding on the cockpit door. “I kept saying to myself: ’What’s he doing? Does he have a bomb? Is he armed?’” passenger Angelina Marty said. Another shocked passenger, Andrew Wai, thought, “Could this be it? Are we going down?” Within moments Sunday, Rageh Almurisi was tackled. Authorities do not yet have a motive. While Almurisi, 28, of Vallejo, Calif., has no clear or known ties to terrorism, authorities say, the incident underscored fears that
extremists may try to mount attacks to retaliate for the death of al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden last week. Federal agents are investigating Almurisi’s background. He was carrying a Yemeni passport and a California identification card, authorities said. Yemen, a nation at the southern tip of the Arabian peninsula, has been a focus of U.S. officials because one of the most active branches of al-Qaida operates in the remote part of the country. A cousin of the suspect described him as an educated, easygoing person who had arrived in Northern California a year and a half ago from Yemen in search of better opportunities. He was unable to find work in Vallejo, a town of 100,000 across the bay from San Francisco hit hard by the real estate bust, and recently moved to New York where
his brother lived in search of better luck, said Rageh Almoraissi, 29, of Vallejo. Almurisi had not told his extended family in California that he was returning to the area, Almoraissi said. “He’s very laid back, he’s always smiling, he’s always laughing. He’s not an angry person,” Almoraissi said. “Everybody’s worried about him. It’s not typical of him.” Almoraissi said he could not imagine what may have caused his cousin to act as authorities allege he did on the plane, but said he was certain Almurisi was not a terrorist. He said his cousin did not show an interest in politics and was not intensely religious. “He might have seriously mistaken the cockpit for the bathroom,” Almoraissi said. “He’s only been on three planes in his whole life.” Almurisi was taking classes in California to learn English
but was not happy with his progress, his cousin said. Almurisi went toward the cockpit door 30 minutes before the flight from Chicago was supposed to land on Sunday night, San Francisco airport police Sgt. Michael Rodriguez said. Almurisi was yelling unintelligibly as he brushed past a flight attendant. Marty, 35, recalled Monday that she and other passengers on the plane were stunned when they saw Almurisi walking down the aisle. She said a woman in a row across from her who speaks Arabic translated that Almurisi said “God is Great!” in Arabic. Wai, 27, also remembered on Monday that the wife of one of the men who took Almurisi down later said Almurisi was yelling “Allahu Akbar.” “There was no question in everybody’s mind that he was going to do something,” Marty said.

Mississippi River flooding approaches record levels By Adrian Sainz and Matt Sedensky Associated Press Writers
MEMPHIS, TENN. — The Mississippi River rose Monday to levels not seen in Memphis since the 1930s, swamping homes in low-lying neighborhoods and driving hundreds of people from their homes. But officials were confident the levees would protect the city’s world-famous musical landmarks, including Graceland and Beale Street, and that no new areas would have any serious flooding. As residents in the Home of the Blues waited for the river to crest as early as Monday night at a projected mark just inches short of the record set in 1937, officials downstream in Louisiana began evacuating prisoners from the state’s toughest penitentiary and opened floodgates to relieve pressure on levees outside of New Orleans. In Memphis, authorities have gone door-to-door to 1,300 homes over the past few days to warn people to clear out, but they were already starting to talk about a laborintensive clean up, signaling the worst was likely over. “Where the water is today, is where the water is going to be,” Cory Williams, chief of geotechnical engineering for the Army Corps of Engineers in Memphis, told The Associated Press. Exactly how many people heeded the warnings was not immediately clear, but more than 300 people were staying in shelters, and police stepped up patrols in evacuated areas to prevent looting. Aurelio Flores, 36, his pregnant wife and their three children were among 175 people staying in a gymnasium at the Hope Presbyterian Church in Shelby County. His mobile home had about 4 feet of

HANGARS AT GENERAL DEWITT SPAIN AIRPORT ARE FLOODED by water from the Mississippi River in Memphis, Tenn., on Monday. Federal officials say that Memphis is seeing the worst of the Mississippi River disaster and that no new areas are expected to see any serious flooding. water when he last visited the trailer park on Wednesday. “I imagine that my trailer, if it’s not covered, it’s close,” said Flores, an unemployed construction worker. “If I think about it too much, and get angry about it, it will mean the end of me.” Sun Studio, where Elvis Presley made some of the recordings that helped him become king of rock ‘n’ roll, was not in harm’s way. Nor was Stax Records, which launched the careers of Otis Redding and the Staple Singers. Sun Studio still does some recording, while Stax is now a museum. Graceland, Presley’s former estate several miles south of downtown, was in no danger either. “I want to say this: Graceland is safe. And we would charge hell with a water pistol to keep it that way and I’d be willing to lead the charge,” said Bob Nations Jr., director of the Shelby County Emergency Management Agency.
Talking about the river levels, he later added: “They’re going to recede slowly, it’s going to be rather putrid, it’s going to be expensive to clean up, it’s going to be labor-intensive.” The main Memphis airport was not threatened, nor was FedEx, which has a sorting hub at the airport that handles up to 2 million packages per day. An NBA playoff game Monday night featuring the Memphis Grizzlies at the FedEx Forum downtown was not affected, and a barbecue contest this weekend was moved to higher ground. “The country thinks were in lifeboats and we are underwater. For visitors, its business as usual,” said Kevin Kane, president and chief executive of the Memphis Convention and Visitors Bureau. Sandbags were put up in front of the 32-story tall Pyramid Arena, which was once used for college and pro bas-
ketball but is now being turned into a fishing and sporting goods store. Forecasters said it appeared that the river was starting to level out and could crest as soon as Monday night at or near 48 feet, just shy of the all-time high of 48.7 feet. Forecasters had previously predicted the crest would come as late as Wednesday. The river was moving twice as much water downstream as it normally does, and the Army Corps of Engineers said homes in most danger of flooding are in places not protected by levees or floodwalls, including areas near Nonconnah Creek and the Wolf and Loosahatchie rivers. About 150 Corps workers were walking along levees and monitoring the performance of pumping stations. Levees in the Memphis area are 58 feet high on average, and the floodwalls downtown are 54 feet.

Chile OKs dam project in Patagonia By Michael Warren and Eva Vergara Associated Press Writers
SANTIAGO, CHILE — A $7 billion project to dam two of the world’s wildest rivers for electricity has won environmental approval Monday from a Chilean government commission despite a groundswell of opposition. The commissioners — all political appointees in President Sebastian Pinera’s government — concluded a three-year environmental review by approving five dams on the Baker and Pascua rivers in Aysen, a mostly roadless region of remote southern Patagonia where rainfall is nearly constant and rivers plunge from Andean glaciers to the Pacific Ocean through green valleys and fjords. Monday’s vote — 11 in favor and one abstention — could prove to be pivotal for the future of Chile, which has a booming economy, vast mineral wealth and a determination to join the elite group of first-world nations. With its energy-intensive mining industry clamoring for more power and living standards improving, some analysts say Chile must triple its capacity in just 15 years, despite having no domestic oil or natural gas. Chile imports 97 percent of its fossil fuels and depends largely on hydropower for electricity, creating a crisis when droughts drain reservoirs or faraway disputes affect energy imports. Supporters say the economic benefits of the dam project justify carving roads
Pakistan suspected of leaking CIA name By Sebastion Abbot Associated Press Writer
ISLAMABAD — Suspicion rose Monday that Pakistan’s intelligence service leaked the name of the CIA chief in Islamabad to local media in anger over the raid that killed Osama bin Laden — the second outing of an American covert operative here in six months. The U.S. said it has no plans to pull the spy chief, but the incident is likely to exacerbate an already troubled relationship between the two countries a week after Navy SEALs in helicopters swooped down on bin Laden’s compound without f irst telling the Pakistanis. The CIA and Pakistan’s spy agency have long viewed each other with suspicion, which the death of the terror leader has laid bare. The Pakistani military and intelligence services have suffered withering criticism at home for failing to stop the U.S. operation. Many Pakistanis view the raid as a violation of their sovereignty — even if they were pleased that bin Laden was killed. U.S. officials have said they didn’t tell Pakistanis in advance because they were worried someone might tip off bin Laden. American forces also used helicopters with radarevading technology so the Pakistanis couldn’t track them. Pakistani Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani defended the military and intelligence services Monday, telling parliament it was “disingenuous for anyone to blame Pakistan ... for being in cahoots with al-Qaida.” He acknowledged his nation’s failure to track bin Laden but said the failure wasn’t Pakistan’s alone. “Yes, there has been an intelligence failure,” Gilani said. “It is not only ours but of all the intelligence agencies of the world.” U.S. officials have said they see no evidence that anyone in the upper echelons of Pakistan’s military and intelligence establishment was complicit in hiding bin Laden in Abbottabad, an army town only 35 miles from the capital. But suspicions remain, and members of Congress have threatened to cut off U.S. aid if evidence is found.

THIS PHOTO TAKEN JAN. 20, 2008, SHOWS A VIEW of the confluence of the Baker and Chacabuco rivers on the outskirts of Cochrane in Chile's Aysen region. The proposal of the multinational consortium HidroAysen to build five hydroelectric megadams in this remote Patagonian region was approved Monday by Aysen Environmental Evaluation Service, SEA in Spanish. through the heart of Chile’s remaining wilderness and running a thousand miles of transmission lines to power the capital, Santiago. The dams together could generate 2.75 gigawatts, nearly a third of central Chile’s current capacity, within 12 years. The Aysen region will receive less expensive energy, jobs, scholarships and $350 million in infrastructure, including seaports and airports, said HidroAysen’s executive vice president, Daniel Fernandez. But people in the sparsely populated area are divided. Only three dozen families would be relocated, but the dams would drown 14,000 acres, require carving clearcuts through forests and eliminate whitewater rapids and waterfalls that attract eco-
tourism. They also would destroy habitat for the endangered Southern Huemul deer: Fewer than 1,000 of the diminutive animals, a national symbol, are believed to exist. “They are all sell-outs,” rancher Elisabeth “Lilli” Schindele said of the commissioners. She lives with her husband and two young children in the Nadis, a sector that would be inundated. Their neighbors have agreed to relocation, but she doesn’t want to leave the 1,235 acres where they raise cattle and sheep. “There is no land like ours,” she told The Associated Press by phone. Robert F. Kennedy Jr., a lawyer for the U.S.-based National Resources Defense Council, appealed to Pinera
to call off the project. “It’s the most beautiful place, I believe, on the planet,” said Kennedy, who kayaks there every year. “I don’t know any place like Patagonia.” Investors have spent $220 million on the project so far, but opposition has grown to 61 percent of Chileans according to the latest Ipsos Public Affairs poll, and the government is concerned about a backlash. More than 1,000 people gathered outside the hearing in the regional hub of Coyhaique, chanting and carrying signs. Some threw rocks at the cars of commissioners, and clashed afterward with hundreds of police, who responded with a water cannon and tear gas. Several protesters were bloodied in the melee, and the commissioners were kept inside for their safety. In downtown Santiago, several thousand people blocking a main avenue in protest also encountered tear gas and police water cannons. Mining and Energy Minister Laurence Golborne had urged opponents to turn to the courts, and they did vow to appeal. “We’re going to keep fighting until this project is unviable,” said Patricio Rodrigo, a spokesman for the Patagonia Without Dams coalition. “This project robs us of our sovereignty.” But Interior Minister Rodrigo Hinzpeter, who sent police to contain the protests, said that “the most important thing is that our country needs to grow, to progress, and for this we need energy.”

Obama, GOP both want Medicare limits By Ricardo Alonso-Zaldivar Associated Press Writer
WASHINGTON — Unlikely as it may seem, President Barack Obama and Republicans in Congress actually share some common ground on the need to curb Medicare costs to fight the spiraling federal debt. Although the House GOP plan to replace Medicare with a voucher-like system got shunted aside last week, that may not be the end of the story. Embedded in both the Republican plan and in Obama’s counter-proposal is the idea of putting limits on the growth of the halftrillion-dollar-a-year program — and then enforcing them. High-level deficit negotiations resume today under the stewardship of Vice President Joe Biden, and tackling health care spending is critical to what could become the year’s most important legislation. The two sides differ sharply on how that should be done. Obama says the GOP would leave frail seniors at the mercy of profit-driven insurance companies. Republicans say the president would empower unaccountable bureaucrats to ration care. If they can meet in the middle on the idea of an enforceable limit, it could open the door for major changes. Over time, that could mean less money for hospitals, doctors, drug companies and other providers and higher out-ofpocket expenses for many retirees. Health care costs of an aging American population are the biggest challenge facing Biden and the deficit negotiators. Tiptoeing around the politically volatile issue won’t impress financial markets that are nervous over the $14 trillion national debt.
Red ink ballooned as a consequence of two wars, tax cuts and the recession, and the government now is borrowing about 40 cents of every dollar it spends. Medicare is the largest single bill payer in the $2.5 trillion U.S. health care system. The way it works now, annual increases in the cost of care for 47 million elderly and disabled people basically get passed on to taxpayers. If spending surges in one part of the program, officials try to tamp it down in future years, like budgetary whacka-mole. Obama’s approach and the House GOP budget by Rep. Paul Ryan of Wisconsin would both try to limit the amount of taxpayer money going into Medicare. It’s a tricky thing. If the limit is too tight, the welfare of millions of people could be jeopardized, to say nothing of the political careers of proponents. Too loose, and it’s meaningless. “They are both saying Medicare has to be on a budget,” said economist Eugene Steuerle of the Urban Institute think tank. “But each of them is also saying it has to be my type of system on a budget, and not your type of system.” Ryan’s plan would provide a fixed payment for everyone now 54 or younger to purchase a private insurance plan once they hit 65 and become eligible for Medicare. After getting an earful from constituents, GOP leaders backed away from pushing for Ryan’s overhaul, but still left it on the table. Obama would keep Medicare a government program but give a panel of experts the power to force cuts if spending exceeded a certain target. His latest proposal would strengthen cost curbs that are already in the new health care overhaul.

Drought hits Texas, surrounding states By Betsy Blaney Associated Press Writer
L U B B O C K , T E X A S — With much of the nation focused on a spring marked by historic floods and deadly tornadoes, Texas and parts of several surrounding states are suffering through a drought nearly as punishing as some of the world’s driest deserts. Some parts of the Lone Star State have not seen any significant precipitation since August. Bayous, cattle ponds and farm fields are drying up, and residents are living under constant threat of wildfires, which have already burned across thousands of square miles. Much of Texas is bone dry, with scarcely any moisture to be found in the top layers of soil. Grass is so dry it crunches underfoot in many places. The nation’s leading cattle-producing state just endured its driest seven-month span on record, and some ranchers are culling their herds to avoid paying supplemental feed costs. May is typically the wettest month in Texas, and farmers planting on nonirrigated acres are clinging to hope that relief arrives in the next few weeks. That the drought is looming over the Southwest while floodwaters rise in the Midwest and South reflects a classic signature of the La Niña weather oscillation, a cooling of the central Pacific Ocean. This year’s La Niña is the sixth-strongest in records dating back to 1949. “It’s a shift of the jet stream, providing all that moisture
and shifting it away from the south, so you’ve seen a lot of drought in Texas,” Mike Halpert, deputy director of the federal government’s Climate Prediction Center in Silver Spring, Md. He said the pattern is “kind of on its last legs,” and he expects a neutral condition for much of the summer. Texas is now drier than in 1951, the first year of a six-year drought. But it’s not nearly as dry as 1956. The parched landscape means the threat of fire is never far away. On Monday, the National Weather Service issued “red flag warnings” — meaning conditions are ripe for fires in portions of Arizona, Colorado, Kansas, Nebraska, New Mexico, Oklahoma and Texas. In Kansas, firefighters have managed to keep a grass fire within the boundaries of the Cimarron National Grassland. The flames have been fanned by winds up to 40 mph and have consumed about 30 square miles since Sunday. “We recommend everyone be extremely cautious,” Kansas Division of Emergency Management spokeswoman Sharon Watson said Monday. “Wind conditions can make things extremely dangerous given the drought.” In addition to numerous small blazes handled by local firefighters, the state in the past couple of months has battled several large grassf ires in parched western Kansas that have charred more than 118 square miles.

Income concern Lawrence can’t use its high student population as an excuse for sluggish growth in its per capita income.
he per capita income figures released by the federal government recently probably weren’t a big surprise to Lawrence officials, but that doesn’t mean they shouldn’t be cause for continuing concern. According to the U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis, the average Douglas County resident earned about $7,000 a year less in 2009 than the average Kansan. Although the county’s per capita income had dropped slightly from 2008, it had declined less than the statewide average. However, from 2004 to 2009, the stateside average grew 22.7 percent, while Douglas County’s average grew by only 18.5 percent. Lawrence and Douglas County having a lower-than-average per capita income isn’t unusual. The primary reason for the discrepancy is the high number of Kansas University students who claim Lawrence Manhattan has some as a residence special circumstances but earn little or but that doesn’t mean no salary. That’s why a Lawrence officials comparison with should dismiss the per other university capita figures. communities is perhaps the Whether or not greatest cause Lawrence experiences for concern. an economic boost When compared anywhere close to that with the 11 other in Manhattan, the city communities in the Big 12 Conneeds to focus on ference, efforts for steady Lawrence had growth in per capita the ninth lowest income. per capita income. All the communities are different, but they all have a large number of students who pull down their average per capita income. Of course, sometimes it’s not all about the students. That’s the case when comparing the per capita income growth in Lawrence to that in Manhattan, home of Kansas State University. In 2004, per capita income in the two cities was about the same, roughly $27,000 a year. By 2009, that figure had grown to $32,000 in Lawrence but soared to $40,358 in Manhattan. K-State hasn’t grown dramatically, but there has been a major troop buildup in neighboring Fort Riley. The early stages of developing the National Bio and Agro-Defense Facility in Manhattan also may have had some impact. Manhattan has some special circumstances but that doesn’t mean Lawrence officials should dismiss the per capita f igures. Whether or not Lawrence experiences an economic boost anywhere close to that in Manhattan, the city needs to focus on efforts for steady growth in per capita income. That means attracting businesses that supply wellpaying jobs for Lawrence residents. As Lawrence Chamber of Commerce President Tom Kern pointed out, it’s unlikely Lawrence will recruit a 1,000-employee company, but it can work on new or expanding companies that create 20 or 100 jobs at a time. With the former Farmland property being reclaimed to the east and activity in the new bioscience and technology incubator to the west, it seems Lawrence may be poised for some important employment gains. Slow and steady may take the day, but only if officials continue to focus on and support business activity that will add jobs to the local economy. LAWRENCE

Really? Pakistan officials didn’t know? There is something surreal about Pakistani officials’ reaction to the killing of Osama bin Laden. Their focus has been wholly on the violation of Pakistan’s sovereignty by the U.S. raid, rather than the fact that bin Laden was living well in their country. The army chief, Gen. Ashfaq Parvez Kayani, warned he would not tolerate any repeat of such covert action; the country’s foreign secretary, Salman Bashir, said any similar attack could lead to “terrible consequences.” “No self-respecting nation would compromise or allow others to compromise its sovereignty,” Bashir insisted. But how could any self-respecting nation allow the world’s top terrorist — a foreigner — to operate out of its heartland? How could any selfrespecting state permit the leader of al-Qaida — a group composed of Arabs, Uzbeks, and Chechens — to base in their country? Unless Pakistani off icials address these questions head-on, they are heading for terrible consequences. They are risking not just their relationship with the United States but their country’s future existence as well. No one believes the civilian government of President Asif Ali Zardari knew bin Laden was hiding in Abbottabad. And most experts doubt that Gen. Kayani, a square shooter, was aware of bin Laden’s location. But few security experts familiar with Pakistan doubt that some agents in Pakistan’s Interservice Intelligence Agency (ISI) knew of bin Laden’s hideout. How could they not? He was living practically next door to Pakistan’s equivalent of West Point, in a city filled with serving and

Few security experts familiar with Pakistan doubt that some agents in Pakistan’s Interservice Intelligence Agency (ISI) knew of bin Laden’s hideout. How could they not? He was living practically next door to Pakistan’s equivalent of West Point.” retired military personnel - a city where other top al-Qaida operatives had been captured. If the fix wasn’t in, wouldn’t the ISI have been watching for unusual activities, especially since the mansion where bin Laden lived had already attracted attention? Wouldn’t ISI agents have checked out who lived there? “Did they know he was here? Surely, they knew he was here,” writes the astute Pakistani columnist Cyril Almeida, in Dawn newspaper. “Maybe they’re so daft they didn’t really take this whole business of alQaida seriously. Maybe they just didn’t think it was their problem. “If we didn’t know, we are a failed state,” Almeida adds. “If we did know, we are a rogue state.
But does anybody really believe they didn’t know?” Upon the answer to this question will depend the future of U.S.-Pakistani relations. This administration, particularly Adm. Mike Mullen, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs, has tried hard to build bonds of trust with Pakistani counterparts, including Kayani and ISI chief Ahmed Shuja Pasha. But unless the ISI comes clean on bin Laden, it will be hard to deflect congressional pressure to cut military and civilian aid to Islamabad. It may become impossible for the two countries to cooperate on a political endgame for the Afghan war that will stabilize that country, as U.S. troops exit. Without such cooperation, Afghanistan faces renewed civil war that will spill across the AfPak border. This would be a self-inflicted tragedy for Pakistan. The U.S.-Pakistani relationship was already on a downhill slide because of Pakistani ire over an expanded CIA presence in their country. But this presence — which Pakistan wants to slash — would be unnecessary if the ISI was in vigorous pursuit of the leaders of al-Qaida and other hard-line terrorists on their soil. Pakistani officials have taken on their own Taliban who threaten them. But they won’t confront Afghan Taliban or terrorist groups such as Lashkar-e-Taiba, whom they view as useful tools in their struggle with India. And they failed to find bin Laden. Assume they didn’t know where he was, that they were just incompetent (after all, the CIA has had big lapses). Why didn’t they try harder? “Maybe they just didn’t think it was their prob-
lem,” Almeida surmised in his column. Too true. The Pakistani army and ISI are so obsessed with India that they can’t grasp the bigger threat within their own borders. Their distinction between “good” terrorists who fight India and the West and bad ones who attack Pakistanis is reckless; these terrorists have links to each other, and allowing them to flourish in Pakistan eats at the core of the state. And what if — as most believe — some ISI agents were helping bin Laden. Why would they do it? As Almeida points out, “Pakistan has nothing in common with alQaida. They serve no purpose to us. “Did we think we could produce him like a rabbit out of the hat when we needed to?” the columnist asks in frustration. “Or, assured in our assumptions about the world around us, did we simply think we could get away with it?” These are the questions Americans are asking, and Pakistanis should be asking, too. We need the answers quickly. “The best way to confront the situation is to come clean and tell people what is really happening,” I was told by retired Pakistani Gen. Talat Masood, by phone from Islamabad. Instead, Pakistani officials are “posturing,” doing damage control at home by focusing on the American incursion. “This is a very dangerous way of deflecting the public’s attitude from the real problem,” Masood said. “Are they proposing to face the problem or not? We need to know.” — Trudy Rubin is a columnist and editorial board member for the Philadelphia Inquirer.
OLD HOME TOWN
From the Lawrence Daily Journal-World for May 10, 1911: YEARS “‘Among men it AGO is considered a disIN 1911 grace to be deprived of their elective franchise,’ said Mrs. W. A. Johnston, wife of the chief justice of the supreme court, in talking to a group of suffrage advocates at the court house yesterday afternoon. ‘Jeff Davis, for whom hanging was considered too good, was punished by disfranchisement. Even the convict is frequently pardoned before the expiration of his term in order that he may retain his elective privileges. Only women are denied this right. No other class of people have begged and prayed for suffrage like women. The ballot was freely granted to the negro. It is bestowed without question on foreign immigrants. Only the women have been deemed incapable of exercising their franchise.’”
A solution to the looming debt menace Here’s a safe prediction: The “bipartisan” group of congressmen led by Vice President Joe Biden will fail to solve the $14 trillion debt crisis. Here’s another prediction: The Heritage Foundation (www.heritage.org/) has developed a formula, made possible by a grant from The Peterson Foundation (www.pgpf.org/), that could balance the budget in 10 years, reduce the debt to 30 percent of gross domestic product within 25 years, cut the size of the federal government in half by 2036, reform the tax code, restructure Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid, while protecting the most vulnerable, and not increasing taxes if — and it is a very big if — politicians prefer the solution to continued bickering. Social Security: The plan’s centerpiece foresees “a gradual transition over many years to a flat benefit system ($1,200 per month in 2010 dollars that would be indexed in future years) to protect seniors from the risk of living in poverty.” Higher income seniors would see gradual reductions in their benefits, based on their non-Social Security income. Benefits for single seniors earning $100,000 and couples earning $165,000 would be phased out. The minimum retirement age would increase to 68, reflecting

today’s longer life expectancy. “Those who work past their full retirement age would receive a special annual tax deduction of $10,000, regardless of income level.” The tax on retirement income would be eliminated. The plan would make seniors less dependent on income from Social Security by offering them savings options. “A new savings plan would automatically place 6 percent of a worker’s income in a savings plan they own and control, unless they voluntarily opt out of enrollment. This money would not be double-taxed, unlike today’s Social Security payments and other savings options.” Medicare: “Transformed from its current unsustainable and open-ended system into a defined contribution that helps those who need it most.” Medicare eligibility would be determined on non-Social Security income, with a similar means testing of allotments. It would be completely phased out “for sen-
iors receiving $110,000 (single) and $165,000 (married).” The program would be put on a longterm budget. All seniors would be allowed to choose from traditional Medicare fee-for-service coverage, as well as expanded options in private plans, ensuring competition and controlling costs. Unlike the current program, the reform would offer catastrophic health coverage as a standard feature in both Medicare and private plans. All of this is linked to full repeal of the euphemistically titled “Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act,” which, says the Heritage proposal, “centralizes decision-making over health care services within the federal government, thereby limiting choice and options for affordable care.” The Heritage plan proposes to create a health care system driven by consumers, not managed by government. Medicaid: Tailored to focus on the disabled and vulnerable elderly. “States would be given greater flexibility to experiment with health programs” and would “cap Medicaid spending at 2007 levels.” Tax reform: A single, flat tax for individuals, lowered overall rates, elimination of taxes on gifts and transfers. All deductions would be eliminated, except for mort-
gage interest, charitable contributions and education. Federal spending: Nondefense discretionary items would revert to 2008 levels. Federal spending has jumped 21 percent faster than inflation in just the last three years. What’s the difference between the Heritage Foundation plan and the one proposed by House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan? Stuart Butler, who headed the team that drew up the Heritage proposal, tells me the Ryan plan “can’t balance the budget any time soon. Ours does.” Heritage President Ed Feulner says, “We have come to a time of decision. For too long, Congress has been on an unsustainable binge of spending, taxing and borrowing. Our nation is going broke, and we are passing the costs of these misguided politics to our children and their children. America is on the verge of decline — economically stagnant and permanently debt-bound, heavily regulated and bureaucratic, less self-governing and less free.” Knowing what must be done and not doing it is not just irresponsible, but deplorable. The Heritage plan offers a way out if politicians put the welfare of their country ahead of their own. — Cal Thomas is a columnist for Tribune Media Services.

Time capsules to record Flint Hills life COUNCIL GROVE (AP) — If everything goes as planned, people living in Kansas 50 years from now will have a way to understand what life was like in the Flint Hills in 2011. A Flint Hills Discovery Center under construction in Manhattan is asking people in 21 Flint Hills counties to put together time capsules containing information and insights into their lives, The Hutchinson News reported Monday. Bob Workman, director of the discovery center, said the time capsules will be installed in a special wall inside the science and history learning center, which is expected to open on the southern edge of downtown Manhattan next April. The plan is to have the time capsules opened during the 2061 Kansas bicentennial. The discovery center staff will work with the Flint Hills Tourism Coalition to find people in each county to coordinate the project. The capsules are due by the end of August. The center — made of limestone layered in striated patterns that resemble the Flint Hills — will have more than 10,000 square feet of interactive exhibits, multimedia programming, classrooms, gardens, a cafe and a store.

Hell Hath No Fury Tour Women are no strangers to rock ‘n’ roll, but metal is a different story (and no, before we go any further, Evanescence does not count). Tonight’s show at the Bottleneck, 737 N.H., is out to change that. All of the bands on the Hell Hath No Fury tour feature at least one female musician. The resultant music features all of the thunder, bombast and heavy metal crunch we associate with the genre, but with an added sense of harmony. Headliner In This Moment, above, exemplifies this perfectly as lead singer Maria Brink trades lines with her bandmates, using her dynamic range to propel songs forward, kicking and screaming. Likewise, bands like Straight Line Stitch forego harmony in favor of a more traditional, direct approach.

Support par for course Every once in a while, a parent whose rationality takes a temporary leave of absence that coincides with the high school sports career of said parent’s son or daughter, becomes convinced the local paper “favors” the other school in town. You don’t hear such charges from the young athletes because they don’t have anything personal against their cross-town rivals. Don’t tell some of the parents this, but most of the athletes actually like their foes. This truth never was more evident than one day last week when golfers from Free State and Lawrence played nine-hole practice rounds together at Alvamar public and then continued the fun with a cookout at the home of Kyle and Renee Green, colorblind parents of Firebirds sophomore Alex Green. It seemed as good a time as any to find out which of the city’s prep golfers had the best skills, according to their peers, so we all will know where to go for pointers. Best driver of the golf ball: Split decision. Lawrence High junior Logan Henrichs and Green drew equal support. Firebirds junior Lee York also was mentioned. “Alex hits a 3-wood as far as I hit my driver,” Firebirds junior Colin Becker said of Green, who once this season reached a par-5 with a driver followed by a gap wedge. “I’ve seen Logan reach a 620-yard par-5 in two using an iron on his second shot.” Green proves spending big bucks on equipment isn’t necessary to hit the long ball. His driver is a Bazooka Tour Edge, his ball of preference a Precept Laddie. Top putter: Free State sophomore Wilson Hack barely edged senior teammate Jake Sakumura. Henrichs and Lawrence High freshman Jesse Ohtake also were mentioned more than once, and Becker and Lions sophomore Brett Van Blaricum drew a vote apiece. Asked to offer a putting tip, Sakumura said, “A lot of people get really wristy with their putter. I’d say pendulum from shoulders down. Also, accelerate through the ball. A lot of people decelerate, and that throws it off line. Less of a backswing, more of a followthrough usually works.” Max Soto said of Hack, his classmate: “Deep into the summer it gets to the point where anything inside 15 feet is automatic, it seems like. He doesn’t miss.” Most skilled sand player: Free State junior Levi Baker. “The other day at Eagle Bend, he dropped three balls in the sand and got up and down on all of them,” York said. Becker and Freshman Narito Mendez of LHS also received votes. Best short game: No consensus of opinion here, but Becker, Henrichs, Van Blaricum and York all draw mentions. The skills of the city’s best golfers will be on display Wednesday at Alvamar public in the final leg of the threeround Sunflower League tournament. The majority of Lawrence parents there will encourage players from both city teams.

LAWRENCE HIGH’S KRISTEN BELL (22) GETS HIGH-FIVES from teammates and coaches after hitting her second home run of the night. Bell drove in five runs in the Lions’ 6-5 victory over Free State in the City Showdown on Monday at Arrocha Ballpark.
Bell powers Lions to 6-5 softball victory By Clark Goble Journal-World Sports Writer
Just about everything went right for Lawrence High senior catcher Kristen Bell in Monday’s game against Free State.

Firebirds dominate LHS in baseball Senior lefty Kukuk fans 11 in Firebirds’ 12-1 rout of Lawrence By Ben Ward Journal-World Sports Writer
Seemingly every time Cody Kukuk takes the mound, he dazzles the array of scouts lined up behind the backstop, baffles opposing hitters and helps guide Free State High’s baseball team to a victory. And all indications are, this is only the beginning for the Firebirds’ senior lefty. Kukuk struck out 11, and Free State collected 11 hits in a 12-1 thumping of Lawrence High in five innings on a gorgeous Monday evening at FSHS. “He can be better,” FSHS coach Mike Hill said. “I don’t want to
sound displeased, because that’s not the case, but he can be better than he was today, and I still think we’re going to see that.” Hill was referring to Kukuk’s five walks and handful of wild pitches, one of which allowed the Lions to score their only run, but aside from that, Kukuk was good as can be as he shut down the Lions. His curveball and slider were sharp, but his fastball — which was clocked as high as 94 mph — was his primary out pitch and continually crashed into catcher Lee McMahon’s mitt after an LHS whiff. “I felt like I had good stuff, maybe not my best, but we just kept working and kept at what we
do,” said Kukuk, who recorded swinging strikes on 35 of his 93 pitches. Whether Kukuk was at his best provided little solace to the Lions (11-8), who fell behind 3-0 in the first inning after Kukuk struck out the side on nine swings-and-misses. “You can’t give someone like Cody Kukuk one run, let alone three, let alone 12,” LHS coach Brad Stoll said. “He’s an amazing player, and to give him that threeRichard Gwin/Journal-World Photo spot certainly set the tone.” For LHS designated hitter Matt FREE STATE’S CODY KUKUK DELIVERS Sutliffe, one of two Lions to single, to Lawrence High.

Heat win in OT to take 3-1 lead The Associated Press
B OSTON — Miami’s Big Three was assembled for just this purpose: to dominate the bullies from Boston who knocked them from the playoffs so many times before. LeBron James scored 35 points, Dwyane Wade had 28, and Chris Bosh had 20 on Monday night to give the Heat a 98-90 overtime victory over the Celtics and move Miami within one game of the Eastern Conference finals. The Heat lead the best-of-seven East semifinals 3-1, with a chance to close out the series in Miami on Wednesday. “Wednesday night will be our greatest challenge that we’ve had with this group so far,” Miami coach Erik Spoelstra said. “We’ll get their best games on Wednesday. And we have to be better. If we’re real about what we want to do, we have to beat the Boston Celtics at their best.” One game after their worst performance as a threesome, James, Wade and Bosh had 83 of Miami’s 98 points and 35 of its 45 rebounds. They scored all 12 of Miami’s points in overtime; Bosh and Wade had five apiece after James’ fallaway jumper on the Heat’s first possession of the

The Celtics would need to win the next three games — two in Miami — to have a chance to defend their Eastern Conference championship. “These are those moments. I look forward to it,” Allen said. “Everybody on this team, we know

It just makes it that much more special if we’re able to do it.” Boston took an 84-81 lead with 2:28 left after back-to-back threepointers by Delonte West and Allen, but James hit a three to tie it and then made a left-handed layin with 48 seconds to play to give Miami an 86-84 lead. Pierce drove to the basket to tie it, but James lost control of the ball while he was dribbling down the clock. Allen went for it and was bumped by James Jones, giving Boston the ball out of bounds with 19.5 seconds left and the game tied at 86. Pierce got the ball, waited out the clock and then took a higharcing fallaway jumper in the final seconds that bounced off the rim as time expired. The Celtics scored just four

Turgeon leaving Texas A&M and Big 12 to coach at Maryland
COLLEGE BASKETBALL Iowa State dismisses forward DES MOINES, IOWA — Iowa State forward Calvin Godfrey has been dismissed from the team after the school said he was arrested for marijuana possession. Godfrey averaged 5.7 points and 5.4 rebounds in a promising freshman season in 2010-11. But Iowa State coach Fred Hoiberg said in a statement on Monday night that Godfrey violated team rules on multiple occasions and that his arrest on Saturday night was the final straw.
Texas players stay in NBA Draft AUSTIN, TEXAS — Texas standouts Tristan Thompson and Cory Joseph are staying in the NBA Draft and won’t be back for the Longhorns. Thompson and Joseph were freshmen last season. They join teammate Jordan Hamilton in leaving the Longhorns early for the NBA.
NBA Hinrich: Hamstring getting better ATLANTA — Atlanta Hawks guard Kirk Hinrich says his ailing right hamstring is finally starting to show some improvement. Hinrich was hurt in the closing minutes of a series-clinching win over Orlando. Secondyear player Jeff Teague has filled in admirably, averaging 16 points a game against the Bulls with only five turnovers. He’s a major reason the Eastern Conference semifinal is tied 2-2 heading into Game 5 tonight at Chicago. Hinrich says he’s only doing “very simple” exercises but feels his hamstring is getting better. When asked if he could possibly return in this series, he says, “I don’t want to rule anything out.” But coach Larry Drew doesn’t expect Hinrich to play against Chicago, even if the series goes to a seventh game Sunday.
Garnett, Bryant on defensive team NEW YORK — Celtics forward Kevin Garnett and Lakers guard Kobe Bryant have been selected to the NBA all-defensive first team for a record-tying ninth time. Garnett and Bryant were joined by Magic center Dwight Howard, who has won the past three Defensive Player of the Year awards and received the most points Monday. Also selected for the first team were Heat forward LeBron James and Celtics guard Rajon Rondo.
BOXING Kansas Senate honors Ortiz TOPEKA — The Kansas Senate has honored the World Boxing Council’s new welterweight champion, who grew up in Garden City. Senators unanimously adopted a resolution Monday praising Victor Ortiz, who captured the WBC title in a unanimous decision last month over previously undefeated Andre Berto. Ortiz, nicknamed “Vicious” for his boxing style, has compiled a 29-2-2 record. Ortiz was born in Liberal but raised by foster parents in Garden City. He was a seventime national amateur boxing champion before winning the WBC title. The Senate resolution commends him for serving as a role model “exemplifying hard work and commitment.” After its adoption, Ortiz posed for photos with senators and showed off his championship belt.
COLLEGE FOOTBALL Missouri backup QB to transfer COLUMBIA, MO. — The battle to replace Blaine Gabbert as Missouri’s starting quarterback is over. His younger brother, Tyler, has decided to transfer.

Garnett started things off by throwing the ball away, and then James made a fallaway jumper as the shot clock expired to give Miami an 88-86 lead. Allen missed, Bosh dunked at the other end, West missed a three-pointer, and then James drew a charging foul on Pierce. After another Boston turnover, Wade made a two-pointer with his foot on the three-point arc to give Miami a 92-86 lead with two minutes left in overtime. “We just had poor execution down the stretch,” Pierce said. “It just carried into overtime, it seemed like. We feel like tonight we beat ourselves.”

As the new basketball coach at the University of Maryland, Mark Turgeon hopes to experience the same kind of success he enjoyed at Texas A&M. The Terrapins are counting on him to do just that. Turgeon was hired Monday night to succeed Gary Williams, who retired last week after a 22-year run at Maryland. The 46-yearold Turgeon leaves the Aggies after making four consecutive appearances in the NCAA Tournament and going 97-40 in his four-year stay at College Station. "It was just too good an offer for me to pass on," Turgeon said in a release. "The thing that made it the most difficult was the players. Those guys have done everything I've asked for four years and we've had a great ride." Maryland athletic director Kevin Anderson believes Turgeon has the ability to extend the winning tradition built by Williams, who won the national championship in 2002 and reached the NCAA Tournament 14 times. Just as important, Williams ran a clean program and maintained tight control over his players. "We're thrilled to bring Mark to the University, where I'm sure he will continue to build on the great legacy and success of Maryland Basketball," Anderson said. "In Mark, we have brought one of the outstanding young coaches in the country, and one who has a proven record of achievement on and off the court. We couldn't be more excited." Turgeon will be introduced at news conference Wednesday afternoon at the Comcast Center, where Williams formally stepped down in an emotional ceremony on Friday. Turgeon joins the Terrapins and the Atlantic Coast Conference after earning Big 12 coach of the year honors with A&M in 2010 and 2011. He is the only coach in Big 12 history with at least 24 victories in each of his four seasons. Turgeon is 250-159 after 13 seasons overall as a head coach, including seven with Wichita State. He went 128-99 with the Shockers and reached the round of 16 in 2006. He began his head-coaching career at Jacksonville State, going 17-11 in his final season there (1999-2000) after going 8-18 in his first year. Turgeon was an assistant at Kansas for five seasons. He also played guard for the Jayhawks from 1984-87. He said leaving Texas A&M was one of the most difficult decisions he's ever had to make. "Marriage was easy for me. I knew I was in love. Going to KU was easy, that's where I always wanted to play college basketball," he said. "Going to Wichita State was easy. Going to Texas A&M was an easy choice. Today was one of the hardest choices I've had to make because of the young men in that locker room."

Firebird Newsome picks TCU By Ben Ward Journal-World Sports Writer
Kevin Anderson/Journal-World Photo
FREE STATE SENIOR PRESTON NEWSOME (1330) COMPETES in the boys 1,600-meter run at the Kansas Relays in this file photo from April 23.
The Free State High library was decked out in purple to celebrate senior P reston Newsome, who signed his national letter of intent to run track at Texas Christian University on Monday afternoon. In addition to the balloons and a couple of TCU T-shirts were a few platters stacked with purple-iced cupcakes, which many of his friends and supporters were enjoying after Newsome inked his letter and posed for a few photos. Newsome, on the other hand, wasn’t reaching for any baked goods.
“I have a big workout after this, so I don’t want to be throwing up,” said Newsome, who will begin running cross country for TCU in the fall as an invited walk-on. Newsome admitted he might eat one later on, but offered a few healthier alternatives suitable for a prepractice snack. “Some celery, some apples, some bananas,” Newsome said with a laugh. “We’d probably have a bunch left over, though.” Levity aside, Newsome’s decision to pass up a cupcake was far easier than choosing where to attend college. Newsome, also a standout on the soccer field, was leaning toward attending TCU

cism impressed coach Steve Heffernan, who said he shared with Newsome that if he felt like focusing on track, he could do some special things. Newsome, a distance specialist with a mile time in the mid-four-minute range, sure has done some nice things for the FSHS team at this point, though his high school career isn’t over yet. He and his Firebird teammates are gunning for a strong showing at the Sunflower League championships — which start at 3 p.m. Friday at Shawnee Mission North — and the state championships down the road. “The top end for him is going to be really high,” Heffernan said.

Trevor Lacey, a 6-foot-3 senior combo guard from Huntsville (Ala.)

He had considered visiting UConn and/or North Carolina State. “The visit was unbelievable and we had a great time. The thing that stood out most about the visit is how comfortable Trevor is with the players.

I’m very proud of my time there.”

KU’s Davis to try out for USA hoops team Kansas University sophomore forward Carolyn Davis is one of 34 players who will participate in the USA Basketball Women’s World University Games Team Trials, which run May 22-25 at the U.S. Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs, Colo. Invitations to the trials Davis were issued by the USA Basketball Women’s Junior National Team Committee, chaired by Sue Donohoe, NCAA vice president for Div. I women’s basketball. An All-Big 12 selection, Davis led the Jayhawks with 19.0 points, 7.4 rebounds and 1.4 blocks per game in 2010-11. “I feel honored to be categorized as one of the best players in the country,” Davis said. “To possibly represent my country at the World University Games would be a huge accomplishment for me.” She is the second Jayhawk in the last three years to earn an invitation to the tryouts. Former Jayhawk Danielle McCray (2006-09) was a member of the 2009 USA World University Games team that took gold in Belgrade, Serbia. Following the selection of the team and/or finalists on May 25, the athletes will return home. Training will resume at the USOTC July 31-Aug. 8, prior to the team’s departure for Shenzhen, China, and the 2011 World University Games.
KU golfer Gilbert invited to regional Kansas University golfer Chris Gilbert was selected to compete in the NCAA Arizona Regional, it was announced Monday night. Gilbert, a sophomore from Simi Valley, Calif., was one of

The low five teams and low individual not on those teams from each of six regionals will advance to the NCAA Championships May 31-June 5 at Stillwater, Okla. Gilbert’s selection marks the second straight season a Jayhawk was picked to play in the regional. Nate Barbee competed last year. Barbee tied for 39th. The last time a Jayhawk, playing as an individual, qualified for the NCAA Championship was Andy Stewart, who tied for 53rd at the NCAA finals in 2001. Gilbert led the Jayhawks with a 73.65 scoring average this season.

Rockies 2, Mets 1 D E N V E R — Chris Iannetta broke a seventh-inning tie with a homer that barely cleared the left-field wall and Colorado snapped its fourgame skid. Iannetta, who stretched out a double that led to Colorado's first run two innings earlier, sent an 81 mph slider from lefty Chris Capuano into the tunnel down the left-field line for his fifth home run with one out in the seventh. Matt Belisle (3-2) got two outs for the win, Colorado's fifth in five games against the Mets this season. They swept a four-game series at Citi Field in April. Rafael Betancourt pitched a perfect eighth and Huston Street worked the ninth for his 12th save in 13 chances. Pinch-hitter Willie Harris led off with a check-swing single but was thrown out by Iannetta trying to steal second base after Jose Reyes capped an 0for-5 night with a flyout to left. Daniel Murphy grounded out to a diving Troy Tulowitzki at shortstop on the ninth pitch of his at-bat for the final out. New York left the bases loaded twice and stranded 10,
finishing 0-for-7 with runners in scoring position. New York

Brewers 4, Padres 3 MILWAUKEE — Zack Greinke struck out nine over six effective innings in his home debut, and Rickie Weeks homered, lifting Milwaukee over San Diego. Greinke (1-1) bounced back from a disappointing start Wednesday for his first win with the Brewers by allowing five hits to the struggling Padres, who came in with a major league-worst .215 batting average. Milwaukee's bullpen held on, thanks to a key double play turned by shortstop Yuniesky Betancourt and Weeks in the eighth. John Axford pitched the ninth for his sixth save. Weeks also drove in a run with a single in the second inning and then homered in the fifth off Padres starter Mat Latos (0-5) that handed the right-hander his 10th loss in his past 10 decisions.

ing it because it's so painful — not the cleaning, the yakking hygienist. The woman is quite nice and gentle. I would love to get the cleaning done, but she talks with her hands. The dental tools become an extension of her hands, so as she talks about her family, she's not working on my mouth. I really love my dentist and the staff. How do I get this lovely lady to simply clean my teeth and not talk so much? — Michigan

instrumental to your success. Tonight: Catch up on a friend's news. Cancer (June 21-July 22) ★★★ A fundamental disagreement might stem from a very different perspective and background. Though at the moment it might seem futile to try to come to an agreement, space will illuminate the path. Tonight: Run errands on the way home. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) ★★★★ Realize what you are asking. If you hit a brick wall or a lack of understanding, the request itself might be a little off. Tonight: Where you can relax. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) ★★★★ Relate to individuals. Your instinct right now might be to cloister. Though you certainly have a lot on your plate and a lot to digest, different people want to access your ability to see a problem from all sides. Tonight: Get some much-needed rest. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) ★★★★ You could be looking at a changeable issue. A meeting sheds light on the fact that some people are more stuck than others. Tonight: Brainstorm with a resourceful friend. Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) ★★★ Stay on top of a

Dear Annie: My six-month dental checkup is fast approaching, and I'm dread-
Documentaries don’t come much more timely than “Bhutto” on “Independent Lens” (9 p.m., PBS, check local listings). Following last week’s raid on the bin Laden compound, the U.S. relationship with Pakistan, and particularly its military and intelligence forces, has descended to a weird new level of absurd denial. Viewers looking for a cogent history of Muslim extremism in Pakistan and of that nation’s struggle to balance democracy and religion should not miss this film. “Bhutto” is, of course, a biography of Benazir Bhutto, the first female leader of Pakistan, who was the daughter of another leader of Pakistan. Both father and daughter were killed decades apart at the hands of extremist factions. Benazir’s father, Zulfikar Ali Bhutto, had a dashing reputation and contributed to the family’s aura as “The Kennedys of Pakistan.” He would be overthrown in a military coup and later hanged. The United States would support and embrace his rival and murderer after Pakistan became central to efforts to combat the Soviets, who invaded Afghanistan in late 1978. Under presidents Carter and Reagan, the United States lavished billions on Pakistan only to see it go into the hands of some who would later constitute the Taliban and al-Qaida. Then, as now, we paid off the Pakistani government to be our “friend,” only to discover that it either turned a blind eye, or actively supported, our enemies. ● “Becoming Chaz” (8 p.m., OWN) chronicles the gender transformation of Chaz Bono. Chaz was formerly known as Chastity, Sonny and Cher’s cute-as-a-button daughter who appeared on most episodes of their popular variety show. Filled with interviews of Chaz and her girlfriend, Jennifer, old clips, and numerous shots of a household filled with cats and dogs, “Becoming” follows Chaz throughout gender-reassignment surgery. Once you get beyond the celebrity voyeurism aspect, this is a rather long film about a not-so-happy person enduring an uncomfortable procedure. Clearly intended to be “empowering,” “Becoming Chaz” is frequently dull.

Dear Frustrated: More time isn't going to help unless Theo addresses the underlying problem. We think he's depressed and is deliberately sabotaging his job efforts. In fact, Theo's drug use may have camouflaged depression if it was a form of self-medication. Ask him to discuss this with his doctor and pastor and get an appropriate, lowcost referral.
For Tuesday, May 10: This year, you have getup-and-go. You are entering a new cycle, where the first year is very lucky. Note a difference between what you project and what you want on a deeper level. Avoid mixed signals. If you are single, this schism could also affect your choices. If you are attached, you will tend to emphasize your family life more. Leo serves as an anchor.

Perhaps stopping and looking at the similarities in each idea could put you on the path toward mutual success. Tonight: Use creativity in your evening plans. Taurus (April 20-May 20) ★★★ You hit a brick wall. Just jump over it. Eliminate the hassles. The untested thought could work. Tonight: Happily mosey on home.

please focus more on your teeth because your time is limited. If that doesn't work, you can register a complaint with the dentist. Or invest in a set of headphones. When you see the hygienist, stick them in your ears, close your eyes and say the music helps you relax. She'll stop talking if she has no audience.
I am fed up. Am I wrong to Dear Michigan: You can lose patience? Theo did manage to get clean and start sweetly ask the hygienist to attending church. Maybe I need to give him more time. But, Annie, I can't do this by myself. I have been considering a divorce, but it's not what I want. What do I do next? — Frustrated Christian

Dear Annie: I married "Theo" three years ago. The marriage started out OK, but then I discovered he had a drug addiction. After a great deal of pushing from me, Theo finally got clean two years ago. The problem is, he has not held down a job since he moved in with me six years ago, while I have worked a full-time third shift to support my children and household. It's not enough to make ends meet. Our utilities have been turned off, we have had multiple vehicles repossessed, and we have been evicted more than once. We recently began sharing living space with my sister and her two kids, but lately, we've had difficulty paying our portion of the rent. I have screamed, begged, pleaded, cried and even cussed him out, telling him to get a job, to no avail. He uses the excuse that he doesn't have a GED and can't get a job that will pay him what he "deserves." I don't care if he takes a minimum-wage job as long as he contributes enough so we don't keep losing our home. We have been through marriage counseling, and even our pastor told Theo to get a job. He tried, briefly, but was fired after two days because he insisted on telling his supervisor what to do.
