ALEX ROSS IS GRADUATING FROM KANSAS UNIVERSITY with a degree in communication studies. He started the Dance Marathon at KU, which benefits the Children’s Miracle Network, for which he has helped raise hundreds of thousands of dollars.
Senior leaving KU knowing that he made a big difference for kids By Andy Hyland firstname.lastname@example.org
Alex Ross figured he was doing pretty well right up until his sophomore year in high school. He had a great family, grew up in an affluent neighborhood, had a girlfriend and played every sport imaginable. “I had a picture-perfect life,” he said. But his life took a dark turn, and the graduating
Kansas University senior said it was a little girl with a big smile in a pink tutu that helped save his life. Ross said he was sexually abused his sophomore year and soon went into a deep depression. He initially hid the abuse from his family and friends, and several times he contemplated suicide and came close to going through with it. “I thought that nobody loved me,” he said. “That nobody wanted me.”
His family eventually hospitalized him. “I hated them at the moment, of course,” he said. “But if they hadn’t done it, I probably wouldn’t be here.” Still, he rebelled. Started hanging out with the wrong crowd. Got arrested. Began disagreeing with his parents on nearly everything. “I was an idiot,” he said. His life turned around after his sister invited him to a “Dance Marathon” at Vanderbilt University.
It turns out there’s not all that much dancing at a Dance Marathon event. It’s primarily geared toward children who are benefitted by the Children’s Miracle Network, an organization that helps children with debilitating diseases, birth defects, afflictions or handicaps. Please see GRADUATE, page 2A
The number of police calls at a handful of Lawrence drinking establishments in a recent 15-month period has drawn the city’s attention. Lawrence police and city attorneys have met with or plan to have conversations with owners of the five establishments with the highest number of calls — Abe and Jake’s Landing at 163; The Oread, which includes The Cave nightclub, 122; Tonic, 99; The Hawk, 93; and Cadillac Ranch, 91 — from January 2011 to April 1 this year. “It’s a serious issue. It’s serious for the patrons, serious for the employees and serious for the police officers that are called to respond to those situations,” City Manager David Corliss said. “We want to monitor it and respond accordingly. What comes of those meetings is the owner and operators indicate they have received the message and they’re going to work to try and respond. I’ve been pleased with the meetings and contacts to date. We’re going to continue to monitor it.” Abe and Jake’s owner Mike Elwell said

City leaders to share details of recreation complex plans By Chad Lawhorn email@example.com
City leaders are hoping to unveil detailed plans for a multimillion-dollar recreation complex in northwest Lawrence at a public meeting in the first week of June. “We do want to get people’s opinions on what this project should offer, how it should function and who should operate it,” said Mayor Bob Schumm, who said an exact date for the public meeting hasn’t been set yet.
But city commissioners are poised to take a major step on the proposed public-private project before it receives that public input. Schumm Commissioners on Tuesday will consider approving a request to annex 146 acres at the northwest corner of Sixth Street and the South Lawrence Traf-
ficway to house the recreation complex and supporting retail amenities that could range from restaurants to a hotel. The annexation process traditionally is the point where discussions about extending city infrastructure to a site take place. Schumm said he had not received a detailed estimate on the costs to extend water service, sewers and city streets to the site, but said it had been described as a cost of “several million dollars.” Schumm also confirmed that
the current working agreement with a private development group calls for the city to pay for those infrastructure costs. A development group led by Lawrence businessman Duane Schwada has offered to donate about 50 acres to the city to house the recreation complex. But a condition of the donation, Schumm said, is the city extend the infrastructure to the site. Extending infrastructure to the 50-acre site essentially will bring the infrastructure to the
remaining 100-plus acres that will continue to be owned by the Schwada group. Schumm said he believes the deal is reasonable. “I think it is a fair deal,” Schumm said. “It obviously creates a benefit for the other property, but if we were doing this on our own, we would have to bring the infrastructure to the site on our own and pay to acquire the property.” Please see CITY, page 2A
Legislative leaders tell Brownback to veto tax cut By Scott Rothschild firstname.lastname@example.org
TOPEKA — Republican and Democratic leaders Friday called on Gov. Sam Brownback to veto a deficit-producing tax cut as the legislative session hit overtime with numerous major issues unresolved. “That would be the appropriate action,” Senate Presi-
dent Steve Morris, R-Hugoton, said about a veto. Senate Democratic Leader Anthony Hensley of Topeka and House Democratic Leader Paul Davis of Lawrence said the proposed tax cut was reckless and would require deep funding reductions to schools, assistance for those with disabilities and highways. They also said it would benefit the wealthy at the

expense of the poor. Fiscal profiles of the tax cut by the Kansas Legislative Research Department projected budget shortfalls ranging from $242 million to $304 million by the time the Legislature meets next year, and $2.5 billion to $3 billion in 2018, which is an amount equal to nearly onehalf the current budget of $6.2 billion in state funds.

But Brownback, a Republican, disagreed with the assessment. “We can make this work,” Brownback said. “This is a progrowth tax cut.” Through economic growth and tight control of spending, the proposal would balance, he said. Brownback said he would prefer a smaller tax cut that was produced by a House-Senate conference committee, but
said if he doesn’t get that bill, he will sign the larger one. The measures would lower income tax rates and eliminate taxes on nonwage income for nearly 200,000 businesses.

versity. She said Ross’ charisma helped attract several people to the cause. “Almost everybody who was involved with Dance Marathon would say it was because Alex Ross asked me to,” Drazen said. She said he really connected with the children at the event. “I think the kids especially give him hope that whatever he’s going through, it can get better,” Drazen said. His sophomore year, he devoted even more time to the cause. About 12 hours a day, he said. “I didn’t really go to class,” he said. “If the class required attendance, I went. Otherwise, I didn’t.” His grades predictably suffered. After that, Ross scaled back his involvement. But they raised $37,000 the second year. By the end of this year, the organization will have donated more than $150,000 to Children’s Miracle Network and raised an additional $50,000 for an endowed fund that will permanently support the organization on campus. After he graduates, Ross said he hopes to make a difference on all seven continents of the world. He’ll start in Africa for four months working with a nonprofit organization, and then it’s on to southeast Asia. He said he’ll have to tell his mother that, though, before she reads it in the newspaper. And he traces it all back to the girl with the tutu and the great smile. “It reminded me that there are people in this world with far greater needs than I had,” he said.
There are games, food, prizes and children from the participating hospitals who enjoy spending time with college kids. He remembered seeing that girl with the tutu singing on stage. She got done and everyone clapped while the girl beamed. “This is the very moment that changed my life,” he said. He decided to pour everything he had into starting up something similar at KU. Ross already knew he was attending the school. A friend was coming along with him, and Ross loved the Jayhawk. “It’s a great logo,” he said. He told his parents about his plans at the Vanderbilt event. They laughed at him. He was less than pleased. But he began to work to realize his goal, calling people in charge of registering new student groups before he even set foot on campus. His first year, he worked hard (about 10 hours a day, he estimated), and was able to donate about $20,000 to the Children’s Miracle Network. “My goal was a million,” he said. Ross said he was a real jerk (he used another word) his first year, and spent too much time micromanaging. He spent the summer backpacking in Europe and reading leadership books. Think “The Tipping Point” and “Five Dysfunctions of a Team.” Colleen Drazen served as the staff adviser to KU — Higher education reporter Andy HyDance Marathon before land can be reached at 832-6388.

City commissioners are moving ahead with the annexation even though the necessary rezoning to allow the recreation complex is at least a month from reaching the city commission. Schumm said he wasn’t entirely certain why the two issues weren’t proceeding together. He also said he wanted to find out more information about what, if any, obligation the city would have to provide city infrastructure to the site, if the recreation complex deal fell apart. City Manager David Corliss
said if the recreation center project didn’t proceed, the city would not be obligated to pay for the extension of infrastructure to the site. Corliss said he’s recommending the annexation process continue on its current pace because it will keep the project on track, plus he said annexation at the location makes sense. “It is at the intersection of two state highways,” Corliss said. “It is a piece of property that needs to be in the city limits.” The annexation is not contingent upon the recreation complex moving forward. If approved, the property will become part of the city on June 4. Schumm, though, hopes the upcoming public

Though they began their journeys at different points across the world — 63 different countries in all — the international students graduating from Kansas University came together Friday to be recognized for their accomplishments. A total of 338 international students graduated with a degree from KU this year, about 60 KANSAS UNIVERSITY of whom were recognized during Friday’s ceremony. “No one in this room has followed an easy path to an advanced degree,” said Susan Gronbeck-Tedesco, KU’s associate vice provost for international programs. Rachel Magario said she lived “all over” Brazil before coming to KU in 1997. “I’m a fossil,” she said. She’s celebrating two master’s degrees: a master’s in business administration and another in interaction design. That’s to add to her two bachelor’s degrees in communication studies and geography that she earned in 2004. Magario, who is blind, was hit by a car and had to undergo a kidney transplant in 2006. She was one of the co-founders of AbleHawks, a student group that advocates for students with disabilities. She said that while the campus was frequently unforgiving for people with disabilities, she
Regent to speak at KU commencement Tim Emert, vice chairman of the Kansas Board of Regents from Independence, is scheduled to speak at Kansas University’s commencement ceremony Sunday at Memorial Stadium.

found the people of Lawrence and KU helped her have a great experience at the school. “In any other place, I might not have survived,” Magario said. Isaac Kanyama came to KU from the Democratic Republic of the Congo, and will be going home with a doctorate in economics. He plans to teach in Africa, and said that while teaching at KU he picked up all sorts of skills and other things to take back to his African students. A Fulbright scholar, Kanyama also earned his master’s degree from KU. He said he didn’t have a choice in what school he attended — the Fulbright program made that choice for him. “I would say they made a very wise choice,” he said. Sarah Puña Valencia, from La Paz, Bolivia, grad-
uated with a bachelor’s degree in chemistry and a minor in music. “I applied to many universities,” she said. “KU offered the best scholarship.” Unlike many of her classmates, she plans to stay in the United States. She’s applying to graduate schools (KU is on the list), and said she enjoyed her time at KU, and getting plugged into the Lied Center especially. “I just met the most wonderful artists there,” she said. KU Provost Jeff Vitter congratulated the graduates on their achievement and thanked them for coming to KU. “By choosing to study at KU, you have been a great gift to our students and our campus,” he said.

Earlier Friday, the House gave final approval on a 76-41 vote to a resolution that says the state House recognizes “the destructive and insidious nature of United Nations Agenda 21.” The measure criticizes U.N. Agenda 21 as a covert plot to destroy the American way of life through extreme environmentalism, social engineering and global political control. Critics of the resolution described it as a rightwing conspiracy theory. Asked if working on anti-Sharia legislation and the U.N. resolution was an appropriate expense of time when major issues weren’t resolved, Brownback said the Legislature has spent much more time on taxes and the budget.
meeting answers many questions about the vision for the new complex. Detailed plans haven’t been released to the public, but discussions have included a 300,000-square-foot indoor center that would have at least eight gyms, a walking track, wellness center, food court and other amenities. In addition, a 15,000-seat outdoor track and field stadium that could host the Kansas Relays and other events has been contemplated.

Lawrence police are warning residents to lock doors and secure windows at night after a man apparently entered two homes early Friday as residents slept inside. Sgt.

The first one was reported at 1:23 a.m. in the 4700 block of Ranch Court, west of Clinton Parkway and Inverness Drive. The second one was reported minutes later about a block and a half to the southwest in the 4800 block of West 25th Street, near 24th Street and Wakarusa Drive.

Friday’s Haskell Indian Nations University’s Spring Commencement was a family dream come true for graduate Lois Stevens. Both of Stevens’ parents, Ernie and Cheryl, graduated from Haskell, as did her two sisters and two brothers. All also played basketball for the school. When Stevens accepted her American
Indian Studies degree Friday morning at the Coffin Sports Complex, she became the latest in her family legacy at Haskell, which actually began with her grandmother, who attended in the 1930s. “Everyone was waiting for me,” Stevens joked. “It’s a huge load off my shoulders.” Stevens, who plans to take a little break and then look at graduate schools, was one of 81 Haskell students receiv-
ing bachelor degrees Friday, while 106 students received associate’s degrees. It was the most degrees awarded in the school’s 128-year history. Haskell President Chris Redman’s message to the graduating class was clear: Celebrate your accomplishments and reflect on your time at Haskell. But look ahead. “Indian country needs you,” said Redman to a full house at
Economic council sounds good on paper, but is it smart? By Dolph C. Simons Jr.
Generally speaking, one of the important ingredients of a growing, forward-looking, prosperous community, no matter what its size, is a solid chamber of commerce, or some organization with the mission of promoting and championing the economic development of the community. Over the years Lawrence has had a checkered history of various degrees of success in the leadership and success of its chamber of commerce. Sometimes it’s been a matter of the level of leadership and commitment of those who have served as members of the board of directors. Sometimes it’s been a matter of who has been the president or manager of the chamber and other times the level of success of the chamber has been determined by officials in City Hall and those serving as city commissioners. Lawrence seems to be continually involved in the growthno growth debate, the involvement of various neighborhood
groups, and now groups or individuals who grade the excellence of the soil adjacent to the city to determine whether industry or manufacturing should be allowed to build on specific sites. Now there is serious discussion about changing the historic role of the Lawrence Chamber of Commerce. Chamber officials have hired a new president and CEO. Greg Williams is a “certified economic developer” who has compiled an impressive record in Missouri and headed the Springfield Chamber for 15 years. This has prompted a small group of city, county and chamber officials to propose a significant change in the role of the chamber and creation of a new “Joint Economic Development Council.” The chamber would be relegated to taking care of the usual and/or traditional chamber functions such as ribbon-cutting ceremonies, membership drives and making sure Christmas season lights are on up and down Massachusetts Street.

heavy lifting would be placed in the hands of the new Economic Development Council — even more specifically in the hands of a three-person executive committee composed of the Lawrence city manager, the county administrator and the chamber CEO.
COMMENTARY They would be supported by an economic council to supervise a separate budget (from both private and public funds) to pay for Council efforts; make budget requests from both the city and county, and to recommend economic development policies. Those on this committee would include representatives from KU, the chair of the chamber, a city commissioner, a county commissioner, someone from the local bioscience and business technology program at KU, and three representatives from the business community appointed by the chamber CEO.

Administrators from Eudora and Baldwin City would serve as nonvoting members. Looks good, sounds good and appears to be politically correct and safe. But it obviously is designed to neuter the chamber of commerce and place the real power in the hands of the new council’s executive committee. And inasmuch as city managers and county administrators serve at the pleasure of city commissioners and county commissioners, it still will be members of the City Commission and County Commission who will be making the decisions. Also, it is interesting to note some of those in the proposed senior and power positions also played a significant role in past years in turning down major industries, companies and/or employers who wanted to come to Lawrence to provide jobs, attract retail customers to Lawrence and add to the city’s tax revenues. It is hoped the chamber’s new president and CEO is a great success and can play a signifi-
cant role in getting Lawrence back to its position of leadership in the state in attracting new business, new industry, new residents and re-energizing the city. But how will the new development council deal with the long-standing and obviously powerful neighborhood groups and others who have opposed healthy growth and development in past years? This is a particularly interesting question when some of those who will be serving in major positions in the new joint economic development structure have not been champions of past efforts to attract and bring solid retail and industry to the city. Have they changed their colors in order to assume an even more powerful position? Will politics at the city and county level continue to determine Lawrence’s future? Best wishes to Greg Williams. Lawrence needs to regain its position as a progressive, visionary leader and a great place to live, work and play.

• Lawrence police were investigating a burglary early Friday at Radio Shack, 711 W. 23rd St., after suspects shattered a front window and stole cash and a computer, valued at $700, said Sgt. Trent McKinley, a Lawrence police spokesman. Officers responded at 4:07 a.m. Friday to an intrusion alarm at the business. Damage to the window and a display case were listed at $1,700. • Two De Soto teenagers are accused of stealing a truck and trailer and committing burglaries at several De Soto businesses earlier this week, said Master Deputy Tom Erickson, a Johnson County Sheriff’s spokesman.

The truck and trailer were stolen late Monday or early Tuesday from De Soto Feed and Grain, 8155 Hadley Road.
INJURY ACCIDENT Mike Coons, planner, Kansas City, Kan. “You can never know too much.”
• A male Free State High School student was injured Friday afternoon in an accident after school, said Julie Boyle, a Lawrence public schools spokesman.

air flow,” McKinley said. “That always presents potential security issues and could allow easy access into someone’s home. We just want to stress that this is a serious situation, and we want to make sure everybody is taking the appropriate safety measures by locking doors and windows and using exterior lighting.” He said the department’s neighborhood resource officers can perform security surveys. To schedule one, send an email to NRO@lkpd.org or call 830-7408. Anyone with information about either burglary is asked to call police dispatchers at 832-7509 or Douglas County Crime Stoppers at 843-TIPS.
Undersheriff Steve Hornberger said Darrin Pease was not wearing a helmet when the crash occurred about 7:40 p.m. on an access road on the west side of the Douglas County State Fishing Lake just north of Baldwin City. Pease was flown by a LifeStar helicopter ambulance to Kansas University Hospital in Kansas City, Kan. Hornberger said a preliminary investigation indicates Pease was driving a 2005 Yamaha scooter on an access road adjacent to East 1814 Road when he struck the potholes and lost control of the scooter. Bob Hallinan, a KU Hospital spokesman, said information on Pease’s condition was not available Friday.
CONDITION UPDATE • Spencer Wilson, 17, a Free State High School junior, who was injured in an April 25 crash on North 1700 Road, which is an extension of Peterson Road, was released Monday from Kansas University Hospital in Kansas City, Kan., said Bob Hallinan, a hospital spokesman.

Kansas Supreme Court Haskell upholds shooting conviction
CONTINUED FROM PAGE 3A
By George Diepenbrock firstname.lastname@example.org
The Kansas Supreme Court upheld the second-degree murder conviction of a 25-year-old Topeka man for shooting and killing another Topeka man in January 2006 in downtown Lawrence. Justices found two legal errors occurred in his trial centering on how jurors were instructed to consider “the degree of certainty” in testimony by eyewitnesses and comments a prosecutor made in closing arguments. But the Supreme Court found that the jury could not have been misled by the instruction about eyewitness testimony and that prosecutor Amy McGowan’s comments were “harmless.” A Douglas County jury in 2007 convicted Rashawn T. Anderson of second-degree murder for shooting Robert Earl Williams, 46, five times and killing him. He was also convicted of aggravated battery for shooting and injuring another man, Pierre Burnette, of Kansas City, Kan. The shooting occurred early on Feb. 5, 2006, on a downtown sidewalk after a hip-hop concert at The Granada, 1020 Mass. Witnesses at the trial said Williams, who did have a knife with him, was involved in several arguments earlier that night, and prosecutors accused Anderson of shooting Williams to prove to his friends he was “a big man.” Anderson’s attorneys had argued eyewitnesses did not properly identify Anderson as the shooter. District Judge Paula Martin instructed jurors they could consider “the degree of certainty demonstrated”
by eyewitnesses at the time they identified a suspect. Anderson’s appellate attorneys argued the instruction was unfair because it prompts the jury “to conclude that eyewitness identification is more reliable when the witness expresses greater certainty.” In the opinion released on Friday, the Supreme Court found Martin should have omitted that instruction, but justices ruled there was “substantial additional evidence implicating Anderson as the shooter.” Prosecutors presented evidence that Anderson’s DNA was found on the murder weapon and Anderson’s ex-girlfriend testified that he confessed to shooting Williams. In the opinion, justices found that McGowan’s comments were improper in closing arguments about Williams being able to get “redemption” through a possible guilty verdict and that Anderson was a “little, little man.” “But there was substantial evidence of Anderson’s guilt, and it is unlikely these isolated comments, which were in rebuttal and not part of an obvious pattern of misconduct by the prosecution, would have affected the jury’s determination,” Justice Dan Biles wrote in the opinion. Douglas County District Attorney Charles Branson argued the case before the Supreme Court. Anderson is also serving a prison sentence for firstdegree murder in a separate shooting in Topeka that occurred in July 2005, months before the Lawrence shootings. His earliest possible date of release from prison is in 2033.

Graduates becoming teachers, heading to law school or graduate school, starting their own business or serving their tribe stepped up and received diplomas Friday. New graduate Joshua Woosypitti, from Anadarko, Okla., was still a little shaken up from the big event, hanging out with friends and family after the commencement. He was all nerves during the ceremony, he admits. “It feels good,” he said, then corrected himself. “It feels great.”

Eh, what’s up, doc? I’m a Jack Russell Terrier mix, about 20 pounds, and much like that wascally wabbit, I’ve got personality and spunk. You can see it in my eyes! My handsome face stands out against my all-white body, and I’m looking to join a new family today. The trainer here says I’d probably do well with children or other dogs in your home. I may be 11 years old, but I am a fun-loving fella who’s young at heart.
Excuse me, can I have your attention? For here I’d like to mention: the ladies say I’m a real fine fellow. Beautiful white coat, so come say “hello.” I’m a young Staffordshire Terrier. At home, I’ll make your place merrier. In foster care I’m doing great, in training. Now long-term love is where I’m aiming. You’ll find, in time, I’m perfect … plus I can rhyme!
Where it’s ALL for Play!!! 785-749-3222 5 minutes W. of Lawrence GARFIELD A handsome orange tabby, it’s easy to confuse me with my more popular cartoon namesake. But I promise I’m not lazy and won’t cause mischief if you take me home. I’m very friendly and happy. I’m simply looking for a loving family and a forever home. However, I do love eating and sleeping. I’m 12 years young and house-trained. Oh, and did I mention I LOVE lasagna?
BARBIE Just call me Barbie doll – I’m such a pretty little girl. And always curious – I love meeting people and learning what’s new! So what’s new with me? I’m 1 year old, love attention and get along great with cats; plus I’m an all-around sweetheart. My dark coat is sprinkled with honey and cream, making my yellow eyes dance.

My extra-soft orange ‘n cream coat and bright green eyes make me one special Pumpkin. I’m a bit round (plump, that is), so I’d be a choice pick in any pumpkin patch. At 7 years young, I long for a patch of my own where I can spread out, be a bit rowdy (just for fun!), and give lots of kisses. When you start petting, I start purring, and no boy is sweeter than this Pumpkin pie.
Currently in foster care, I long for a forever home of my own. I am a sweet and playful chocolate Labrador Mix, just over a year old, and would make the perfect family dog. And although I am really shy, I am finally starting to come out of my shell in my temporary home. Call ahead to make an appointment to see me, and I hope you will, because with the right attention I know I can grow into your wonderful companion.
I’m a handsome, brindle American Staffordshire Terrier with bright white markings. About 2 years old and 50 pounds, I’m full of energy, kind of a rough-and-tumble dude, so I’ll need an experienced owner to help me learn. I know I can do it! I’ll bring such fun into your life: romping, playing, jogging, hiking – we can do it all. If you’ve got the patience, I’ve got the will. Just let me be YOUR new Beau.

Wednesday that in the last six weeks he changed the venue, 8 E. Sixth St., to host only private events. For about two years, it had been open on Thursday nights to anyone 18 and older with a Kansas University ID. Elwell said a majority of the police calls were for alcohol violations on the property, and he said a significant number of the problems occurred in the parking lot, including at least one large disturbance, adjacent to the property. “There wasn’t any demand that we stop doing Thursday night or anything like that,” he said. “You could sense that we couldn’t monitor that parking lot.” Owners and managers of some establishments say they welcome the conversations to try to reduce the numbers, but they also contend the overall numbers don’t tell the whole story. “To me, they need to carefully weigh what these calls are to have a good understanding of why the calls were made,” said Nancy Longhurst, general manager of The Oread, a hotel and development at 1200 Oread Ave. that includes The Cave, a nightclub on the lower levels. “The reflection in that report is about bars and knowing that 70 percent come from the hotel is not a correct assessment of where the calls originated.” Longhurst said the total number of calls on the list for The Oread were skewed because it included everything that occurred on the hotel property, including medical responses, like for a woman who fainted in her room after a long flight or for an infant who had trouble breathing in a restaurant on the property.
Numbers The city released a list of the total number of calls for services to addresses at establishments with liquor licenses in Lawrence after city attorneys announced last week they were asking city commissioners to seek a suspension or revocation of the Taste Lounge, Bar and Grill, 804 W. 24th St., after three firearm-related incidents since October, including the March 17 shooting of a bouncer.

Taste problems Although five other establishments or bars had a higher number of overall calls, Sublet in a May 2 interview said law enforcement and city staff members believe Taste Lounge has presented greater public safety concerns and that the calls at Taste were more violent. In a memo to city commissioners, Sublet mentions the three firearm-related incidents since October. Suspects have been arrested and charged in all three of those cases. But he also mentions other allegations, including the alleged rape in 2011 of a woman who was younger than 21 by a Taste employee in a VIP room and another allegation earlier this year in which three male employees of Taste picked up a woman at another drinking establishment after Taste had closed, took her back to Taste at 2:30 a.m., served the woman liquor “and proceeded to allegedly forcibly rape her.” In a letter to Taste’s owner, Lee Riley of Topeka, City Attorney Toni Wheeler said Riley had indicated at an April meeting with the city he had planned to cease operations at Taste before May 15. City officials on Friday said they had not yet received notice Riley had surrendered his liquor license to the state, and Doug Jorgensen, director of the Kansas Department of Revenue’s Alcoholic Beverage Control division, said Taste still had a valid liquor license. Jorgensen said if a license holder surrenders or has a license revoked, the establishment still could operate as a restaurant, for example, as long as it didn’t serve alcohol. — Reporter George Diepenbrock can be reached at 832-7144.

LMH nurses honored
By Karrey Britt
Lawrence Memorial Hospital honored two nurses Thursday with its first DAISY awards for going above and beyond the call of duty in providing care for patients and their families. They were Cori Green and the late Debbie Toms. As the nomination letters were read, there were many tears among the dozens of staff and family members in attendance. Green’s nominee said: “She was so supportive during our father’s death and called me to encourage me to come in to be with my dad. She arranged my favorite beverage, iced tea, to be available in a pitcher in his room and she located some jazz CDs (my father’s favorite kind of music) and had it playing for my father when he died. “She gave my father excellent, proactive care and created a safe place for me during a scary time.” Green said she won’t soon forget her patient or his daughter. “I just kept encouraging her and telling her that she wouldn’t get this time ever again. I just tried to make the environment as comfortable as possible,” she said. She was humbled by the award because she knew there were a lot of nominations — 32 to be exact. “To think of everybody that was nominated and all of the people I have worked with, it just blows me away that I’ve been chosen,” she said. The other recipient was Toms, who died Aug. 12, 2011, from an aggressive brain tumor at age 58. She had worked at LMH for nearly 18 years, starting out in the intensive care unit. She worked as a clinical nurse for Cardiovascular Specialists of Lawrence when she received the devastating diagnosis. “We are better people because she inspired us. We watched the way that she was and we wanted to be like her,” said Sheryle D’Amico, vice president of the physician division. Toms was nominated by D’Amico and cardiologist Dr. Roger Dreiling. “It was Debbie’s nature to be compassionate and comforting with every patient and family she encountered,” they wrote. Toms’ mother, Nancy Boswell, and her older sister, Cindy Ford, accepted the award on her behalf along with her sons, Travis and Jarrod. Ford said her sister never complained or asked, “Why me?” “She just said, ‘God has his plan for me and I have to live it out,’” Ford said. “Debbie always had compassion for those suffering and wanted to make a difference.” The DAISY award is given in partnership with the DAISY Foundation, which was started in honor of J. Patrick Barnes, who died at age 33 of complications from an autoimmune disease. His family decided to honor him and the extraordinary nurses who cared for him by creating DAISY Foundation — DAISY is an acronym for Diseases Attacking the Immune System. The first DAISY award was given in 2001, and since then more than 1,000 hospitals and health care facilities in seven countries have adopted the program and recognized more than 8,000 nurses. — Health reporter Karrey Britt can be reached at 832-7190.

LHS students study energy consumption By Christine Metz email@example.com
Students don’t often get to use foot massagers or space heaters in school. But this week in Alan Gleue’s advanced physics class at Lawrence High School, that’s exactly what students were doing as they measured the energy consumption of all sorts of appliances. “When you are using stuff, you don’t actually think about its impact on the environment and how much it is actually costing,” junior Ella Magerl said. Because students don’t pay electric bills, they don’t often think about how much energy they are using. And that is one of the reasons Gleue ties energy consumption into the unit he teaches about electricity. Earlier in the year, Gleue brought in his home energy bill to show the students how electricity is paid for. And he also connected energy usage to

We talk a little bit about that,” Gleue said. For one lesson, Gleue shopped at second-hand stores buying small household appliances like a George Foreman grill, lamp, curling iron, toaster, space heater, hair dryer and iron.
For some of the high school girls, the biggest surprise was how much energy hair dryers consume. “The small things that you don’t think use a lot of energy actually can add up,” said Shelby Steichen, another junior who was working in a group with Magerl. Last summer Gleue was one of seven high school science teachers and one community college profes-
sor who spent six weeks at Kansas University as part of the Research Experiences for Teachers program. The program, which is funded for three years through a $500,000 National Science Foundation grant, focuses specifically on biofuels and is centered on research being conducted with the Center for Environmentally Beneficial Catalysis and the Transportation Research Institute. Gleue studied ways to reduce energy consumption. On Friday, Gleue’s firsthour class was plugging in different kinds of light bulbs — an incandescent bulb, compact fluorescent bulb and LED — to see which ones gave off the most heat and light. Using a device that measures energy usage and working with a formula, the group also figured how much it would cost to power those light bulbs for four hours every day for a year. Here are the calculations that Gleue’s students arrived at:
60 Watt incandescent light bulb Cost of a four-pack of bulbs: $1.33 Lifetime: 1,000 hours Cost to power for a year: 15 cents CFL Cost of light bulb: $2.24 Lifetime: 10,000 hours Cost to power for a year: 4 cents LED Cost of light bulb: $50 Lifetime: 30,000 hours or 10 years Cost to power for a year: 3 cents From those numbers, both Magerl and Steichen agreed CFLs were the way to go. In fact, Magerl said she might consider replacing some in her home. “For instance, there is a light fixture in my room. They burn out and don’t last long. I change it all the time,” Magerl said. And that’s exactly what Gleue recommends.

‘Finding Your Roots’ is must-see TV “Finding Your Roots with Henry Louis Gates Jr.” is another of the Harvard professor’s wonderful television series for PBS. This is “must-see TV” and a more than worthy sequel to three previous projects Gates has hosted about how some of us came to be what and who we are. In this latest 10-part series, Gates explores the genealogical and genetic history of a diverse group of people, from entertainer Harry Connick Jr. and Pastor Rick Warren to former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and Brown University President Ruth Simmons. There are less famous people, but the famous get you hooked for the rest. As I wrote about the earlier series, “African American Lives,” which traced the African and slave roots of celebrities, including Oprah Winfrey and Chris Rock, Gates eviscerates any excuse for racism when he explores the lineage of the African Americans he interviews. That’s because the whitest and blackest among us are actually a mix of genes formed out of a racial melting pot that includes ancestors who were both black and white. It would be easy for Gates, whose political sympathies align with the Democratic left, to make these programs a partisan rant
It is also something rare for television today: a program that helps you truly appreciate the value of your own life.”
against historical and cultural injustice and the Republican Party. He avoids that temptation, letting the facts he and his team unearth speak for themselves. Gates has become a modernday Ralph Edwards. Edwards hosted a TV show in the 1950s called “This is Your Life.” On the show, childhood friends and long-lost relatives would surprise a famous guest and regale the audience with funny and heart-warming stories from the celebrity’s past. On Gates’ program, those relatives are long dead. They are ghosts who have faded through generations of family history,
leaving only stories handed down by word of mouth. One of the most poignant moments in the current series is when Condoleezza Rice learns about her great-grandmother, Julia Head. Through stories told by her family, Rice learned that Head was the child of a slave and a white slave owner. After a search of courthouse records in Greene County, Ala., Gates discovers documents that reveal Julia Head was just 4 years old when she was sold for $450. Shown the record of the sale, Rice soberly responds, “My great-grandmother was worth $450 to Mr. Head. Yeah, dehumanization. Just property.” Conservatives should love this series because it shows that despite incredible odds that argued against success, the subjects Gates profiles overcame overwhelming obstacles to achieve something significant. Long before the birth of our entitlement generation, we held these kinds of role models up to young people. The message was, “If they could overcome, so can you.” That’s what Rice’s parents believed. On “Finding Your Roots,” Rice said her parents told her that even though she might not have been able to drink a soda at the local Woolworths segre-

gated lunch counter in 1963, she could be president of the United States if she wished. She came close. In an age when we change homes and jobs many times during our lifetimes and families are broken up because of divorce and other factors, finding one’s roots is an important component to filling in one’s family tree. Who am I? Why am I here? Where am I headed? These are all fundamental questions to which every human being, regardless of race, gender or background, wants answers. Professor Gates provides these answers to the people he profiles, but his programs also encourage viewers to explore their own family histories so they can know more about themselves.

For Israelis today, it feels like May 1967 again WASHINGTON — In May 1967, in brazen violation of previous truce agreements, Egypt ordered U.N. peacekeepers out of the Sinai, marched 120,000 troops to the Israeli border, blockaded Eilat (Israel’s southern outlet to the world’s oceans), abruptly signed a military pact with Jordan and, together with Syria, pledged war for the final destruction of Israel. May 1967 was Israel’s most fearful, desperate month. The country was surrounded and alone. Previous great-power guarantees proved worthless. A plan to test the blockade with a Western flotilla failed for lack of participants. Time was running out. Forced to protect against invasion by mass mobilization — and with a military consisting overwhelmingly of civilian reservists — life ground to a halt. The country was dying. On June 5, Israel launched a pre-emptive strike on the Egyptian air force, then proceeded to lightning victories on three fronts. The Six-Day War is legend, but less remembered is that on June 1, the nationalist opposition (Menachem Begin’s Likud precursor) was for the first time ever brought into the government, creating an emergency national-unity coalition. Everyone understood why. You do not undertake a supremely risky pre-emptive war
Charles Krauthammer firstname.lastname@example.org
without the full participation of a broad coalition representing a national consensus. Forty-five years later, in the middle of the night of May 7-8, 2012, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu shocked his country by bringing the main opposition party, Kadima, into a national unity government. Shocking because just hours earlier, the Knesset was expediting a bill to call early elections in September. Why did the high-flying Netanyahu call off elections he was sure to win? Because for Israelis today, it is May ’67. The dread is not quite as acute: The mood is not despair, just foreboding. Time is running out, but not quite as fast. War is not four days away, but it looms. Israelis today face the greatest threat to their existence — apocalyptic mullahs publicly pledged to Israel’s annihilation acquiring nuclear weapons
— since May ’67. The world is again telling Israelis to do nothing as it looks for a way out. But if such a way is not found — as in ’67 — Israelis know they will once again have to defend themselves, by themselves. Such a fateful decision demands a national consensus. By creating the largest coalition in nearly three decades, Netanyahu is establishing the political premise for a pre-emptive strike, should it come to that. The new government commands an astonishing 94 Knesset seats out of 120, described by one Israeli columnist as a “hundred tons of solid concrete.” So much for the recent media hype about some great domestic resistance to Netanyahu’s hard line on Iran. Two notable retired intelligence figures were widely covered here for coming out against him. Little noted was that one had been passed over by Netanyahu to be the head of Mossad, while the other had been fired by Netanyahu as Mossad chief (hence the job opening). For centrist Kadima (it pulled Israel out of Gaza) to join a Likud-led coalition whose defense minister is a former Labor prime minister (who once offered half of Jerusalem to Yasser Arafat) is the very definition of national unity — and refutes the popular “Israel is divided” meme. “Everyone is saying the

same thing,” explained one Knesset member, “though there may be a difference of tone.” To be sure, Netanyahu and Kadima’s Shaul Mofaz offered more prosaic reasons for their merger: national service laws, a new election law and negotiations with the Palestinians. But Netanyahu, the first Likud prime minister to recognize Palestinian statehood, did not need Kadima for him to enter peace talks. For two years he’s been waiting for Mahmoud Abbas to show up at the table. Abbas hasn’t. And won’t. Nothing will change on that front. What does change is Israel’s position vis-a-vis Iran. The wallto-wall coalition demonstrates Israel’spolitical readiness to attack, if necessary. (Its military readiness is not in doubt.) Those counseling Israeli submission, resignation or just endless patience can no longer dismiss Israel’s tough stance as the work of irredeemable rightwingers. Not with a government now representing 78 percent of the country. Netanyahu forfeited September elections that would have given him four more years in power. He chose instead to form a national coalition that guarantees 18 months of stability — 18 months during which, if the world does not act to stop Iran, Israel will.

3 dead in crash of small plane CHANUTE — The National Transportation Safety Board says three people have died in the crash of a small plane in southeastern Kansas. NTSB spokesman Peter Knudson says five people were aboard the twinengine Cessna 401 when it went down around 4:30 p.m. Friday northwest of Chanute. Knudson says the eightseat plane caught fire after the crash. The Federal Aviation Administration is also investigating and says the crash occurred about seven miles northwest of Chanute. That’s a generally rural area. Knudson says the plane was en route from Riverside to Council Bluffs, Iowa. He said the plane lost contact with air traffic control shortly after getting permission to descend to a lower altitude. Knudson says investigators were unaware of any distress call. No other information about the people on board was immediately available.

KU visit fires up incoming QB Baty
SUNFLOWER LEAGUE TRACK AND FIELD
Spin it to win it
By Matt Tait email@example.com
The announced attendance for this year’s Kansas University football spring game was 15,000 — one of the largest turnouts for the annual game in years and the fourth highest total in the Big 12 Conference this spring. But it was not just KU fans who came out in record numbers to watch the scrimmage on the last Saturday in April. Nearly half of the Jayhawks’ 27-man recruiting class, which is expected to arrive on campus next month, was on the sideline for the spring game. Many of those who made the trip said they felt a strong bond with their new teammates. “We were like a little family,” said City College of San Francisco quarterback Turner Baty. “It was really cool.” For Baty, who will be eligible to play in 2012 and is expected to challenge for the secondstring quarterback position behind Dayne Crist, the chance Baty Kevin Anderson/Journal-World Photo to make one LAWRENCE HIGH’S BLAKE HOCKING SPINS in the Sunflower League shot put competition on Friday at the Olathe District Activity final visit to Center.

Judge tosses suit against Boeheim SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) â€” A judge on Friday threw out a defamation lawsuit brought against Syracuse University and menâ€™s basketball coach Jim Boeheim by two men who said the Hall of Fame coach slandered them when he said their accusations of sexual abuse against former associate head coach Bernie Fine were driven by greed. Two former team ball boys, Bobby Davis and Michael Lang, accused Fine of sexually abusing them more than 20 years ago. When the allegations surfaced in November, Boeheim
vehemently supported Fine, a friend for more than 40 years and his assistant for 35-plus seasons. Boeheim told ESPN that Davis was telling â€œa bunch of a thousand liesâ€? and called him an opportunist looking to cash in on the publicity surrounding the Penn State sex-abuse scandal. Supreme Court Justice Brian DeJoseph, a graduate of Syracuse University and its law school, ruled Friday that Boeheimâ€™s comments were not statements of fact but were opinions that are protected from defamation suits. â€œThe content, tone and pur-

The people of greater San Diego, his people, were to join thousands of others Friday night to say goodbye to Junior Seau, filing into Qualcomm Stadium, his house, to tell stories and shed tears and try to wrap their minds around a single question. Why? Why would this beloved and widely admired former athlete, who made millions during an extraordinary 20-year NFL career, decide to end his life? Why would Seau, 43 years old, turn away from his family, his four children, to enter a spare bedroom of his oceanfront home, point a pistol at his chest and pull the trigger? Seauâ€™s family is asking. His fans are asking. His friends are asking. And because Seau was one of the most popular figures in NFL history â€” his jersey was a big seller, especially in Southern California â€” the worldâ€™s biggest sports machine not only must ask but also be compelled to act. More and more credible evaluations are taking football into profoundly uncomfortable territory, revealing the game we love often takes a terrible toll on its performers. They sometimes choose to die rather than endure more agony. Seauâ€™s death is the third apparent suicide by a retired NFL player in 15 months. None of us knows for certain the despair that drove Seau to take such extreme action, but we would be naive, or foolish, to dismiss a connection with football. We would be negligent if we did not consider that he was somehow damaged after 25 years of violent collisions, or that he struggled to cope without the game that consumed him. The league is being clobbered with staggering amounts of evidence regarding concussions and their long-term effects. Hundreds of retired players contend with financial problems, mood swings, depression and memory loss. Some of these woes have been attributed to Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (CTE). â€œIâ€™m no scientist, but I donâ€™t have to be,â€? ESPN analyst Lomas Brown, a seven-time Pro Bowl offensive lineman who spent 18 seasons in the NFL, tells the St. Louis PostDispatch. â€œSomethingâ€™s not right here. This canâ€™t be some random coincidence.â€? Well, no. Thatâ€™s why retired players are lining up to get their piece of the NFL. The league is facing lawsuits involving about 1,800 players (and some spouses and widows), bringing at least 70 complaints, charging the league misled players about the dangers of concussions. And those numbers are constantly changing because the list is constantly growing. The NFL is not exactly on the brink of demise, but it is being forced to seek solutions to what could be a very costly problem.
Allred and filed the lawsuit in late December. Late Friday, Allred vowed to appeal the ruling â€œWhen Bobby Davis came forward years ago and complained about sexual abuse he was ignored,â€? Allred said in an email statement. â€œWhen the allegations were made public he was attacked. It is difficult enough for victims of childhood sexual abuse to come forward. This decision sends the message that you can attack the alleged victim and call him a liar with impunity. It makes it even harder for victims to come forward.â€?

Three share Players lead; Tiger sticks around PONTE VEDRA BEACH, FLA. â€” The Players Championship still lacks some definition going into the weekend. At least it still has one of golfâ€™s star attractions. In what looks to be a neighborhood block party, Sea Island residents Matt Kuchar and Zach Johnson steered clear of trouble Friday and shared the 36-hole lead with Kevin Na. They had a one-shot lead over Harris English, a PGA Tour rookie who also lives 100 miles to the north at Sea Island. The attention shifted to Tiger Woods, who with one burst of birdies went from a guy struggling to make the cut to being on the periphery of contention. Woods missed the cut last week at Quail Hollow and never has missed consecutive cuts in his career. He said the thought never crossed his mind. â€œI was trying to shoot my number today,â€? Woods said after a 4-under 68, ending a streak of nine straight rounds without shooting in the 60s. â€œSixty-six was my number today. I figured that would have been a good way to go into the weekend, being probably four or five back. But Iâ€™m still with a good chance.â€? Johnson made five birdies on the back nine until a bogey on the 18th hole, though he matched the best score of the second round with a 66. Kuchar, who made a strong run at the Masters last month, played bogey-free over his last 13 holes for a 68. Na started the back nine with three straight birdies for a 69. They were at 8-under 136. â€œItâ€™s fun to be back in position with a chance to win again,â€? Kuchar said. English birdied the 17th and 18th for a 67, while the group at 6-under 138 included past champion Adam Scott (70). Rory McIlroy doesnâ€™t even get a chance to play. The U.S. Open champion, who only last week lost in a three-way playoff at Quail Hollow, opened with a birdie and didnâ€™t make another one the rest of the day. He shot 76 and missed the cut for the first time in more than a year, though it wasnâ€™t unusual at the TPC Sawgrass. In three appearances at The Players Championship, McIlroy has never broken par or made the cut. Former Kansas University golfer Gary Woodland also failed the make the cut after shooting a second-round 72 and a two-day total of 150.

Logano then shot past Joe Gibbs Racing teammate Denny Hamlin during NASCARâ€™s version of overtime and held on for his third series victory of the season. Hamlin finished second, giving him five toptwo placings in his seven Nationwide races here. Brad Keselowski was third followed by Sam Hornish Jr. and Austin Dillon.

wasn’t enough to help out the Kansas bats Friday night against Kansas State in a 2-0 loss at Tointon Family Stadium. A long rain delay forced the Wildcats to take out dominant starter Kayvon Bahramzadeh after 5 2/3 innings, but the Wildcats relievers — who entered with a 7.93 earned-run average in Big 12 play — held the Jayhawks scoreless the rest of the way. KU was shut out for the eighth time this season. “The whole focus of the series was to win it,” KU coach Ritch Price said. “Now we’re behind the eight-ball after dropping the first night on Friday. We’ve got to find a way to come back at it tomorrow.” Bahramzadeh was dominant from the start. The senior right-hander didn’t allow a hit until the

He wouldn’t leave too many fastballs over the plate.” Bahramzadeh was replaced by Matt Applegate following a one-hour, 34-minute rain and lightning delay in the top of the sixth. The righty allowed just one baserunner with two strikeouts in 1 1/3 innings, and Gerardo Esquivel protected a 2-0 lead for the save after pitching the final two innings. The ninth wasn’t easy.
Alex DeLeon led off with a double to right center, and Dreiling’s single to right put the tying run on first with no one out. The two runners wouldn’t move from there, as Jake Marasco and Michael Suiter both struck out before pinch-hitter Chris Manship lined to second base to end the game. KU’s hitters finished with 12 strikeouts in 34 plate appearances. Kansas State took the lead in the second. R.J. Santigate led off with a bloop single to center, and after a Matt Giller sacrifice bunt, KU starter Frank Duncan struggled to keep the ball down against the next two hitters. Blair DeBord lined a single to left to put runners at the corners, and nine-hole hitter Jake Brown followed with an RBI single to make it 1-0. The Wildcats tacked on another run in the bottom of the sixth after KU reliever Robert Kahana

spring game and I have friends who went to Cal’s spring game, and no one goes. No one cares. It was so cool just to see that amount of KU people there and see everyone into it. Just the excitement that’s surrounding the program is huge, and I think that will really help us.” Asked to recall the spring game plays that stood out most, Baty, like most, pointed to sophomore running back Tony Pierson’s big day. “Obviously, Tony Pierson had that break-away run,” Baty said of Pierson’s 88yard touchdown run. “That was sweet. Not only that, but (senior wide receiver) Kale Pick did an awesome job. He looked awesome. I’m a little bummed that he has my number and I have to wait a year to get number 7, but he’s a stud.”
Craig lost his opening singles match to Shawnee Mission East’s Brooks Kendall, 6-1, 6-1, then defeated Garden City’s Sebastian Kyaw, 9-0, in consolations, to conclude his action at state. The FSHS doubles team of Nick Pellett and Richard Lu lost in the opening round to Blue Valley Northwest, 6-0, 6-3, then defeated Washburn Rural, 9-3. Pellett and Lu are scheduled to play three matches today in the consolation round.
I’m counting down the days.

I’m a big LeBron (James) fan, too.”

going to get off my approach. I’m still trying to look for something to drive, whether it’s 2-0 or 0-2.” Floyd gave up five singles. The 6-foot-6 righthander has given up just four earned runs in his last 28 2-3 innings. “I’m really honestly just trying to be aggressive with whatever I’m throwing,” Floyd said. “Try to let the team field the ball.

3-2 and he still needed to make a pitch, kind of like Floyd did on Billy there. Floyd made it, Paulino didn’t.

What he saw at the spring game. “You can’t say a lot from the spring game because it was mostly ones against mostly twos,” he said. “But I think what you can say is that, just by watching it, you know we have talent. Whether that’s at O-Line, wide receiver, running back, on defense, whatever; I know we have the talent here to win.”

KANSAS CITY CHIEFS DEFENSIVE TACKLE DONTARI POE (92) RUNS between drills during a minicamp at the team’s practice facility on Friday in Kansas City, Mo.
Chiefs rookie Poe embraces pressure “
KANSAS CITY, MO. (AP) — It finally hit Dontari Poe that he is playing in the NFL when walked into the locker room at the Kansas City Chiefs practice facility. There were the helmets. Bright red with that arrowhead logo on the side, as shiny as a child’s new ball. “It was like, ‘Yeah,’” Poe said. “I’m here now.” Now it’s time to prove he belongs. The former Memphis tackle was picked with the No. 11 overall selection in last month’s draft, a 350-pound stopper expected to fill the biggest hole along the Chiefs’ defensive line. The pick was widely panned given Poe’s lack of production in college, but his impressive physical skill set means he may be the biggest boomor-bust prospect in years. “My point of view is, pressure is whatever you make it, so I’m just working my hardest and doing the best I can. That’s all I can do,” he said, sweat dribbling off his forehead on a warm afternoon in Kansas City. “Whether I’m the first pick or the last pick, I’m going to go in there and give it my all.” Poe spent most of the first day of the Chiefs’ three-day rookie minicamp Friday working with defensive line coach Anthony Pleasant, both of them in a far corner of an adjacent practice field to where the rest of the roughly three dozen players were going through drills. Poe worked mainly on getting off the ball quickly, often pushing his meaty paws into a blocking pad that Pleasant wore on his chest and sending the coach back on his heels. “People don’t know that there’s a big mental part to this game, and it’s a lot faster,” he said. “You really don’t do too much of this technique in college. Just trying to come in here and learn as much of the mental part as I can.” The technique he’s referring to is the two-gap, something he did occasionally at Memphis. The idea is that the defensive tackle takes on blockers head-on, and is responsible for the gap over each of their shoulders — thus, two gaps. The result is the defender spending most of his afternoon getting pounded by the opposing offensive line. “I sat right here and I looked him right in the eye and asked, ‘You know what kind of defense we play?’” said Chiefs coach Romeo Crennel, who doubles as the defensive coordinator. “I said that we’re going to be head-up on them and you’re going to get double-teamed and all those kind of good things,”
Every day I come out here, I know some people have said a lot of negatives about me, and it’s my job to prove them wrong.” — Kansas City Chiefs first-round draft pick Dontari Poe
Crennel said, “but if you just make the plays you’re supposed to make, you’ll make plenty of plays.” That was the biggest point of contention when Poe came out of college. He put up impressive numbers at the scouting combine in Indianapolis, clocking 4.98 seconds in the 40-yard dash — decent even by linebacker standards — before laying down at the bench press and pushing 225 pounds an astonishing 44 times. But when scouts went digging through scouting reports, and started review mountains of video, they quickly learned why Poe hadn’t been on everyone’s radar all along. He only made 33 tackles, eight tackles for loss and had one measly sack last season. Memphis won all of two games, and Poe was only voted secondteam all-Conference USA. There are reasons for the modest production, of course. Poe was asked to move around a lot on defense, and because his team was so miserable on both sides of the ball, he was the only player that the opposing team had to worry about — most either used quick passes or simply ran away from the big guy clogging up the middle. “It’s unbelievable what he’s had to play,” Chiefs general manager Scott Pioli said. “One of the things we’ve learned over time is for a defensive lineman to two-gap, it takes a certain type of mentality, not only to be a two-gap defensive lineman, but to be a nose. He has played some two-gap, not a whole lot of it, but he has that type of mentality. One of the things that we spend a lot of time on with this player and have a really good feel for is his mental and emotional endurance, in that position in particular.” Poe certainly sounds mature. He understands that Kansas City has been trying for the better part of a decade to find someone who can play defensive tackle. Guys such as Ryan Sims and Junior Siavii washed out, and guys such as Kelly Gregg were brought in past their prime to fill the hole. “Every day I come out here, I know some people have said a lot of negatives about me, and it’s my job to prove them wrong,” Poe said. “I’m trying to do that every day.”
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Marc Gasol scored 23 points, Zach Randolph had 18 points and 16 rebounds, and the Memphis Grizzles rallied in the fourth quarter to beat the Los Angeles Clippers 9088 Friday night, forcing a decisive seventh game in the series. Rudy Gay and Mike Conley added 13 points each to help the Grizzlies win for the first time in the Western Conference series at Staples Center. Blake Griffin scored 17 points despite a sprained left knee that limited his jumping ability, and Eric Bledoe added 14 off the bench to lead the Clippers, who blew an eight-point lead in the fourth along with a second consecutive chance to close out what would have been a landmark playoff victory for the beleaguered franchise. Chris Paul scored 11 points playing with a strained right hip flexor and a jammed right middle finger. The Clippers are seeking just the third playoff series win in franchise history. Game 7 will be Sunday in Memphis. Only eight teams in NBA history have come back from a 3-1 deficit to win a seven-game series. Top-seeded San Antonio awaits the winner in the conference semifinals. Tied 66-all starting the fourth, the Clippers scored 10 straight to take their first lead since the game’s opening minutes. Bledsoe scored six points. But the Grizzlies weren’t done. They went on a 17-4 run, including 10 straight points, to take an 85-80 lead. Gay scored five in a row as the Clippers missed and Randolph came up with a big block. Conley hit a 3-pointer and Randolph tipped in the ball to close out the spurt. Griffin made two free throws before Randolph scored for an 87-82 lead. Conley fouled Paul, and he missed the first and made the second to leave Los Angeles trailing 87-83 with 56 seconds left. The Clippers were forced to keep fouling, and the Grizzlies made 3 of 8 to stay alive. The

MEMPHIS GRIZZLIES FORWARD ZACH RANDOLPH, TOP, GRABS the headband of Los Angeles Clippers forward Reggie Evans as he goes up for a shot during Game 6 of their first-round NBA playoff series on Friday in Los Angeles. Clippers’ Caron Butler missed a 3-pointer with 14 seconds to go as red-clad fans headed for the exits before Randy Foye hit a 3 with 3 seconds left. Memphis opened the second half on a 12-8 run to extend its lead to 54-46, with Randolph having six points and Gasol four. Los Angeles answered right back, with Paul bookending a 14-6 spurt that tied the game at 60. Griffin and DeAndre Jordan got in two huge dunks before Paul’s jumper from the right corner brought the Clippers all the way back from an eight-point deficit earlier in the quarter. Butler’s 3-pointer gave the Clippers their first lead, 63-62, since the game’s opening minutes. Griffin took the ball away from Gasol and fed Bledsoe for a layup that tied
the game at 66 going into the fourth quarter. The Grizzlies led by nine points in the first half, when they outrebounded the Clippers. Paul twice drew the Clippers within one in the second quarter before Gasol’s three-point play extended Memphis’ lead to 42-38 at the break.

Source: James to nab third MVP award MIAMI (AP) — Heat forward LeBron James is the NBA’s MVP for a third time, putting him alongside some of the game’s all-time greats. A person familiar with the decision told The Associated Press that James will be announced today as this year’s winner of the league’s top individual honor, and that he’ll be formally presented with the trophy by Commissioner David Stern on Sunday afternoon before Miami hosts Indiana in Game 1 of an Eastern Conference semifinal series. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the league has not announced the results. James is winning the award for the third time in four seasons. Only seven other players — Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Michael Jordan, Bill Russell, Wilt Chamberlain, Larry Bird, Magic Johnson and Moses Malone — have at least three MVP trophies. James said last week that while another MVP award “would be amazing and would be humbling,” it’s not what drives him. In his ninth season, James still has not won an NBA title and it’s clear that, although he wanted to reclaim the MVP trophy, winning a championship is far and away his top basketball priority. “What I’m all about is team and ever since I was a kid, I was always taught it’s team first,” James told

MIAMI HEAT FORWARD LEBRON JAMES (6) DRIVES past New York Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony (7) in Game 3 of an NBA first-round playoff series on May 3 at Madison Square Garden in New York. the AP on Friday. “My first time playing basketball, we went undefeated and won a championship and Frank Walker Sr. gave everyone on the team a MVP trophy. Right then and there, I knew that this is what I wanted to do. I wanted to see my teammates reap the benefits as well.” Abdul-Jabbar won the MVP six times, Jordan and Russell five times each, Chamberlain four times. After this weekend, they’ll be the only players with more than James. “I think he’s probably as committed as he’s ever been in his career,” Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said this week, asked to summa-
rize James’ season. “And he’s always been committed. ... We all respond to his energy on the court.” James averaged 27.1 points, 7.9 rebounds and 6.2 assists — making him only the fourth player with those totals in at least two different seasons, according to STATS LLC, joining Oscar Robertson (five times), John Havlicek (twice) and Bird (twice). Add James’ 53 percent shooting and 1.9 steals per game into the mix, and the club gets even more exclusive. Only Jordan had a season with numbers exceeding what James did this season in those categories — 1988-89, when
he averaged 32.5 points, eight rebounds, eight assists and 2.9 steals on 54 percent shooting. And Jordan wasn’t even the MVP that year; the trophy went to Johnson. “I think LeBron is an MVP candidate every year,” Celtics coach Doc Rivers said last month. “It’s just who he is. He only does everything. So I don’t know what more you can ask from him. “LeBron, to me, is the favorite every year,” Rivers added. “The years he doesn’t win it, it’ll usually be because people are just tired of voting for him. Statistically, if you go all-around game, I don’t know how you don’t vote for him every year.” The MVP votes will be revealed today. Oklahoma City’s Kevin Durant was thought to be James’ top competition for the MVP, after winning the NBA scoring title for a third straight season. Chris Paul of the Los Angeles Clippers, Kobe Bryant of the Los Angeles Lakers and Tony Parker of the San Antonio Spurs also had seasons that generated some MVP buzz. Last season’s MVP, Derrick Rose of the Chicago Bulls, appeared in only 39 of 66 regular-season games this season because of a variety of injuries. His season ended in Game 1 of the Bulls’ first-round playoff series against Philadelphia, when he tore a knee ligament.

Nationals 7, Reds 3 CINCINNATI — Roger Bernadina and Danny Espinosa each hit a two-run homer in one of Washington’s biggest scoring splurges of the season, leading the light-hitting Nationals past Cincinnati. Washington matched its season high for runs by taking advantage of Mike Leake (0-5), who lasted three innings and remained winless in six starts. He gave up seven hits and six runs, including the homers by Bernadina and Espinosa. It’s the second time Leake has failed to last four innings this season. Left-hander Gio Gonzalez (4-1) struck out a season-high nine batters — including six in a row — but lasted only five innings because of a high pitch count. His performance came one day after Stephen Strasburg struck out 13 Pirates, including seven in a row, for a 4-2 win. Bernadina also had one of Washington’s three homers in the win in Pittsburgh. The Nationals are in first place in the NL East on the strength of their pitching, which had allowed only 93 runs heading into the Cincinnati series — fewest in the majors. Washington’s .237 team batting average
ranked near the bottom of the league. Washington got rolling right away against Leake, who gave up Bernadina’s homer and Adam LaRoche’s RBI double before getting an out. He threw 28 pitches before retiring a batter. Bernadina also singled home a run in the second. Espinosa hit his second homer in the third inning, forcing manager Dusty Baker to get his bullpen working. Washington

AMERICAN LEAGUE ROUNDUP
Orioles rally past Rays in East clash ————
Ibanez homer in ninth inning helps New York turn back Seattle Seattle
The Associated Press
Orioles 4, Rays 3 BALTIMORE — Nick Johnson’s first homer in two years gave Baltimore a seventh-inning lead, and the Orioles edged Tampa Bay on Friday night in a duel for first place in the AL East. Johnson’s two-run drive off Joel Peralta (02) put the Orioles in front 4-3, and the bullpen made the margin stand up. After spending last season in the minors, Johnson received an invite to spring training, made the team and was batting .143 before his game-changing home run. Adam Jones and Nick Markakis also connected for the Orioles, who lead the majors with 53 homers. Baltimore trailed 3-2 before Chris Davis hit a twoout single in the seventh off Tampa Bay starter Jeremy Hellickson. Peralta then served up a 3-2 pitch that Johnson deposited into the front row of the right-field bleachers for his first homer since May 5, 2010, with the New York Yankees. Darren O’Day (3-0) pitched the seventh, Pedro Strop worked a perfect eighth and Jim Johnson got three straight outs for his 10th save. The Rays and the surprising Orioles came into the game tied atop the division with 20-12 records. It was the first time since June 9, 1992, there was a two-way tie for first place in the AL East this late in the season didn’t involve either New York or Boston. Tampa Bay, which was hitless after the fifth inning, has lost five of six. Rays designated hitter Luke Scott, who played the previous four seasons with Baltimore, went 1 for

Dana Eveland walked six over six innings in his Orioles debut and gave up three runs and five hits. Obtained in a December trade with the Los Angeles Dodgers, Eveland toiled in the minors for Baltimore before being summoned for this game. The Rays loaded the bases with no outs in the second inning but got only one run, on a double-play grounder by Sean Rodriguez. Jones tied it in the bottom half with his 10th home run, a drive to deep into the left-field seats on a 3-2 pitch. Tampa Bay took a 3-1 lead in the fourth, but
might have had more if not for a gritty play by Orioles catcher Matt Wieters. With the bases loaded and one out, Elliot Johnson hit a liner off the rightfield wall that scored Matt Joyce and sent Rodriguez hustling from second to home. Markakis threw to second baseman Robert Andino, whose relay got to Wieters an instant before Rodriguez arrived. Rodriguez led with his left shoulder and barreled into Wieters, who made the tag and held onto the ball despite being thrust backward several feet. Eveland then issued an intentional walk to load the bases before hitting Carlos Pena with a pitch
to force in a run.

I think ly need. sometimes people equate

One possible tipping point of this rivalry, however, is the loss of Mariano Rivera, and it didn’t take very long for that to have an impact. The Rays rallied to beat David Robertson on Tuesday night — the loss that ultimately prevented a Yankees’ sweep — but Maddon refused to pin it on Rivera’s replacement. Tampa Bay is nothing if not resilient. The Rays have won four games when trailing after eight
innings, the most in the majors, and had outscored opponents 22-8 in the ninth. It’s reflective of a never-say-die mentality money can’t buy. “That’s the game we play,” Maddon said. They have no choice. That, along with a starting rotation whose 3.46 ERA is the second-best ERA in the AL, is what the Rays must rely on to level the playing field in a ferocious division. The Yankees showed this week it doesn’t always work, and last night they helped Sabathia beat David Price for the first time in six tries. But with the Rays still atop the AL East, it’s the Yankees that have some catching up to do.
Astros walking their way to improvement for a change HOUSTON (AP) — Last season, the Houston Astros had the fewest walks in the majors on their way to baseball’s worst record. Maybe the Astros have turned a corner: Entering Thursday, they were seventh in the National League in walks and sixth in on-base percentage, a change that suggests one of baseball’s youngest teams is maturing and has them believing they are much, much better than last season. Manager Brad Mills de-
cided to focus on improving this area at the start of spring training. “I think you hoped it would work. You never knew if it would,” he said. “(It’s about) how these guys are fitting in and what they do and realizing what they can do.” Patience at the plate isn’t something players gain overnight and it’s a constant battle for Mills to keep players from backsliding. Left fielder J.D. Martinez walked just 13 times
in 208 at-bats last season. This year, he already has a team-leading 19 walks in just 100 plate appearances. That has helped increase his on-base percentage from .319 last year to .353 now, despite a significantly lower batting average. The 24-year-old insists he wasn’t actively trying to walk more. The walks are simply a product of a better approach at the plate. “It wasn’t something that I really worked on,
I just really try to pick my pitches and if it’s not there, it’s not there and I’m not going to swing at it,” he said. Center fielder Jordan Schafer, who is in his first full season in Houston after a July trade from Atlanta, immediately reaped the benefits of embracing Mills’ philosophy. He tied a franchise record by reaching safely in his first 25 straight games to start the season. He’s second to Martinez in walks with 14 and
is already halfway to his walk total from last season when he played 82 games, which has significantly increased his on-base percentage. Schafer is still adjusting to the change despite the positive results. “I just try to go deeper in counts and take pitches,” he said. “It’s helped me walk more, but it’s also got me in a lot more twostrike counts where I’ve been behind a lot. Sometimes I don’t feel comfortable taking so many pitch-
es, but sometimes I need to, especially if the pitcher gets out in front of me.” Schafer prefers to be a more aggressive hitter, but knows that as the leadoff hitter and Houston’s best base stealer, getting on base is more important than being overly aggressive. “Anytime I can get on base it’s going to help us because the guys behind me are going to get better pitches to hit,” said Schafer, who leads the Astros with 11 stolen bases.

Beverly Hills Hotel marks 100 years of swank By Solvej Schou Associated Press
BEVERLY HILLS, CALIF. — Stand on the Beverly Hills Hotel’s red carpet, leading into its chandeliered lobby, and you can’t help but visualize a century’s worth of celebrities, royalty, politicians, musicians and actors who have stayed there, from Marilyn Monroe and Elizabeth Taylor to Madonna, Reese Witherspoon and Katy Perry. The luxury hotel on Sunset Boulevard marks 100 years since it opened May 12, 1912, two years before the city of Beverly Hills itself was built around it. It remains one of the swankiest destinations in Southern California, home to Oscar and Grammy parties and star-filled lunches. Its breezy, old Hollywood air comes from an incomparable list of superstar guests that has ranged over the decades from Charlie Chaplin, Cary Grant and Clark Gable, to John Lennon and Jack Nicholson, to the androgynously elegant Marlene Dietrich, who convinced the hotel’s Polo Lounge restaurant to change its “no slacks for women” dress code in the 1940s.
In his new book “The Beverly Hills Hotel and Bungalows — The First 100 Years,” Robert S. Anderson, the hotel’s official historian and great-grandson of its founder, tells the hotel’s story, from its beginnings amid acres of bean fields, to the present day, when celebs such as director Sofia Coppola stop by the coffee shop for a bite with friends. Anderson’s greatgrandmother Margaret Anderson — who managed a hotel on the site of what’s now the Hollywood & Highland Center, where the Academy Awards are held — built the Beverly Hills Hotel for $500,000 with architect Elmer Grey. “Elmer Grey designed the hotel in such a way so that every room got sunlight in one point of the day or another,” said Robert S. Anderson during lunch in late April in the Polo Lounge, beneath its green-and-white striped patio ceiling. “An acre of land was set aside for the guests to grow vegetables and flowers while staying here, so they would feel at home. That acre of land now is probably worth $25 million.”
Making its famous guests feel at home, and giving them privacy, have always been part of the hotel’s mission, beginning with silent film-era stars such as Chaplin and Buster Keaton, who shot movies at the hotel. The 1920s Hollywood power couple Mary Pickford and Douglas Fairbanks met at the hotel, then renovated a palatial house above the property. Liz Taylor honeymooned in the hotel’s lavish bungalows with six of her husbands, including Richard Burton. Bungalow Five was one of their favorite hangouts. Reclusive billionaire Howard Hughes not only lived in the bungalows on and off for 30 years, but starting in 1942, he parked his Cadillac in front of the hotel for so long that plants started growing out of it. He also had hotel staff leave late-night meals, including roast beef sandwiches, in a nearby tree. Monroe stayed in bungalows 20 and 21 in 1960 while reportedly having an affair with her “Let’s Make Love” co-star Yves Montand. Lennon and Yoko Ono stayed in bed for a week in another bungalow. “She was well-behaved, and he
wasn’t,” said Anderson, laughing. “Lennon would sing loud, Irish songs. One night Prince was up here singing to some girl in a suite upstairs, in the ’80s. People yelled to him, ‘Knock it off!’” The hotel remains a place where celebrities can let down their hair, attracting the East Coast elite as well as Hollywood locals. But paparazzi, beware. “Stars felt safe here, as they do today,” said Anderson. “For example, even getting through the front door. If you’re wielding a heavy-duty camera, they ask you what the hell you’re doing.” Four stories high, surrounded by acres of gardens and flowers, the hotel evokes a lush Mediterranean fantasy island, decorated with banana leaves, palm fronds and fuchsia azaleas. A celebration of the centennial is planned for June 15-17 to benefit the Motion Picture Television Fund, with a filmmaker panel, an evening party hosted by director Brett Ratner and a Polo Lounge brunch hosted by Warren Beatty and DreamWorks Animation CEO Jeffrey Katzenberg.

Dear Annie: Four months ago, my wife of 22 years left me. She moved in with her parents, filed for divorce and said she is going to find happiness. She had an affair, and we tried to work through it, but she wanted me to heal according to her timetable, not mine. I have custody of our children, and she rarely sees them. When she does, it is all fun and games and no responsibility. We both work professional jobs. I have been through all the hurts and emotions and everything that goes with a divorce. I keep hoping she will come to her senses and return home. Since she doesn’t pay any bills or child support, she left us in a difficult financial bind. I recently met someone who is a sweetheart. But I still have a few feelings for my soon-to-be ex. Do I move on or wait? — Advice Needed in Midwest
Marcy Sugar and Kathy Mitchell firstname.lastname@example.org
Dear Advice: See a lawyer and make sure your wife pays child support and has regular visitation with her children. They will need to see her, and you are entitled to the financial assistance. And while it’s possible that your wife’s desire to be irresponsible and immature will diminish in time, we see no reason for you to wait around unless she is willing to get into counseling and work on her marriage. It is natural for you to still have some feelings for her,
Hallmark greets Mother’s Day Happy Mother’s Day! Just in time for the holiday, “Notes From the Heart Healer” (8 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, Hallmark) reimagines the ancient fable of the foundling child in the safe and cozy confines of Hallmark movie conventions. Genie Francis reprises her role (“The Note” and “Taking a Chance on Love”) as advice columnist Peyton MacGruder. You know this is a fantasy when we learn that her compilation of old columns has been turned into a best-seller! She travels to a picture-postcard village to do a signing at a thriving independent bookstore (!) and is surprised by the appearance of her fabulously successful husband and columnist (Ted McGinley), a guy so perfect they called him King! After celebrating their first anniversary with Champagne toasts and engaging in yuppie banter about buying a sailboat, Peyton and King are surprised to find a baby at their front door. Little do they know it was abandoned by Violet (Laci Mailey), a fragile single mother inspired by words of affirmation that Peyton uttered during a local radio interview. Will the intrusion of a stranger’s infant rekindle a maternal instinct Peyton abandoned decades before when she was pressured to give up her own baby for adoption? And can a comfortably middle-aged advice-dispenser live up to her platitudes?
The one hour special “The Grammar of Happiness” (8 p.m., Smithsonian) profiles Daniel Everett, a missionary who moved his family to the Amazon rainforest to convert the Piraha people to Christianity. Instead, he was captivated by their culture and became an iconoclastic linguist, challenging prevailing theories about human language.
Saturday’s other highlights
NASCAR action (5:30 p.m., Fox).
Johnny Depp and Orlando Bloom star in the 2007 sequel “Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End” (7 p.m., ABC).
“Fish Tank Kings” (9 p.m., National Geographic Wild) profiles extreme aquarium builders.
Will Ferrell hosts “Saturday Night Live” (10:30 p.m., NBC), featuring musical guest Usher. Cult choice A wife (Simone Signoret) and mistress (Vera Clouzot) conspire to kill their tormentor in director Henri-Georges Clouzot’s 1955 shocker “Diabolique” (7 p.m., TCM).
Baseball Hall-of-Famer Yogi Berra is 87. Composer Burt Bacharach is 84. Country singer Billy Swan is 70. Singer-musician Steve Winwood is 64. Actor Gabriel Byrne is 62. Actor Bruce Boxleitner is 62. Singer Billy Squier is 62. Country singer Kix Brooks is 57. Actor Ving Rhames is 53. Actor Emilio Estevez is 50. Actor Stephen Baldwin is 46. Actress Kim Fields is 43.

but you should not be stuck pining away. Rest assured she won’t be doing the same. Dear Annie: I am the step-grandmother of a 7-year-old whom I consider my granddaughter. “Missy” does not have a relationship with her father (my husband’s son), although we have been actively involved with her since she was an infant. Missy’s mother subsequently had another child, now 3, with someone else. We recently were informed that Missy cannot visit us on weekends without her little brother. According to their mother, he “cries all weekend when his big sister is gone.” My husband and I feel this woman is simply seeking a baby sitter for the weekends. We have resorted to elaborate reasons why we cannot have both kids, but I’m afraid we’re running out
JACQUELINE BIGAR’S STARS
For Saturday, May 12: This year you often give off mixed vibes. You might say one thing but do another. Others might start reflecting this behavior, or at least talking about it. If you are single, you might enjoy several potential suitors; one in particular could be quite significant to your life history. If you are attached, your relationship is stable and extremely caring. Let in more fun. The stars show the kind of day you’ll have: 5-Dynamic; 4-Positive; 3-Average; 2-So-so; 1-Difficult Aries (March 21-April 19) You know exactly what to do. Find your friends, let your guard down and relax. Tonight: Go, do and be. Taurus (April 20-May 20) Clearly someone could be pushing your buttons. You might not be as free as you might like. Tonight: Don’t think you’re not noticed. Gemini (May 21-June 20) Keep reaching out for a friend or loved one at a distance. Even if you cannot see this person right away, it doesn’t mean that you do not want to in the near future. Tonight: Reach out for a loved one. Cancer (June 21-July 22) Deal directly with others. You know how to handle a personal matter better than a partner or friend, or so you think. Tonight: Where the gang is. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) Defer to others in order to have a happier day. It might be momentarily beneficial to be right or to have things go your way, but ultimately you are only hurting yourself. Tonight: Be with that special person. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
WEAR OUT? By Mark Hooper
of excuses. We have not seen Missy for weeks now, but my husband refuses to take the 3-yearold. What should we do? — Perplexed Dear Perplexed: You may be right that Missy’s mother is looking for free baby-sitting, but the price of saying no is rather steep. She seems perfectly willing to keep her away until you acquiesce, so you might reconsider and “adopt” the 3-year-old, as well. Missy might appreciate it. You also could try working out an arrangement that doesn’t involve weekends, perhaps taking Missy out for ice cream on Wednesdays or picking her up from school. It wouldn’t be the same, but at least you would remain in regular conACROSS tact. — Send questions to email@example.com, or Annie’s Mailbox, P.O. Box 118190 Chicago, IL 60611.
An even pace works, especially if you throw an unpleasant chore or two into the mix. You will maintain your budget, so worry less about joining in with a friend or two. Tonight: Put your feet up. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) How you handle a close friend or associate could change because of how you see this person at the moment. Are you being a little negative? Tonight: Go out and live it up. Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) Invite a friend or two over for a meal or a mutually enjoyable pastime. You might want to stay at home, yet you also want to see a loved one or friends. Tonight: Home is your castle. Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) Keep conversations moving. You could be stunned by a friend’s seriousness. Tonight: Catch up on a loved one’s news. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Be aware of what is happening behind the scenes. At the same time, you could be making plans for the near future. Tonight: Go over plans with a friend. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) Understand how difficult it can be to resist you when you are vulnerable. Someone might detach, partially out of envy. Tonight: Say “yes” to living. Decide where and with whom. Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) Keep the pace nice and easy. News surrounding your home or a family member could be very exciting. Tonight: Choose a quiet and cherished pastime with a special person. — The astrological forecast should be read for entertainment only.
