Brownback standing by tax-cutting proposal By Scott Rothschild srothschild@ljworld.com

TOPEKA — Unhappy with projections of budget shortfalls caused by the proposed tax cut, Gov. Sam Brownback’s administration is preparing rosier numbers.

Sunny

During a meeting of the House Republican caucus, Majority Leader Arlen Siegfreid, R-Olathe, said Brownback’s budget director, Steve Anderson, would soon release a “dynamic scoring model” that Siegfreid said would show the positive ef-

fect of tax cuts cycling back through the economy. The financial projections produced by the nonpartisan Kansas Legislative Research Department show the tax cuts will start producing a revenue shortfall in July 2014, increasing to an estimated

$2.5 billion to $3 billion shortfall in 2018. The current annual state budget is about $6.2 billion in tax funds. Moderate Republicans and Democrats have said a tax cut of that size will mean Brownback and the Legislature will have to make dras-

tic cuts to schools, social services and public safety. The tax-cutting plan headed to Brownback’s desk Please see TAX, page 2A

A DREDGING OPERATION sits east of downtown Lawrence along the Kansas River. Environmentalists say proposals to expand dredging of the river would degrade the river bed and bank, as well as stir up pollutants that have settled at the bottom of the river.

Proposals to expand dredging cited as peril to the Kaw By Christine Metz cmetz@ljworld.com

A proposal to increase sand and gravel dredging along the Kansas River has placed the body of water on a list of the most endangered rivers in the country. Each year, American Rivers, a river preservation organization, names the nation’s 10 most endangered rivers. This year’s list is led by the Potomac River, where clean water and public health are threatened by pollution, the organization said. The Missouri River also made the list because of what the organization called outdated flood management. The Kansas River, which has

A 37-year-old Basehor man who has Douglas County ties is in federal custody, accused of hiring a man to kill his wife. According to an affidavit filed in federal court in Missouri, investigators accuse Lee D. Smith of agreeing to pay a man $1,800 to murder Smith’s wife. The man whom Smith asked to commit the murder was a confidential informant to law enforcement, the affidavit said. Federal prosecutors in Missouri filed a complaint Friday alleging that Smith met the informant in Kansas City, Mo., on May 9 and drove the man to the parking lot outside his wife’s job at 7400 College Blvd. in Overland Park to show him where he could kidnap her. According to the affidavit, a federal task force officer with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives alleges that on May 11 the informant placed a recorded call to Smith telling him he had his wife and Smith’s daughter in his custody. “Smith requested that he let his daughter go and to continue as planned with killing his wife,” according Please see MURDER, page 2A

Missouri lawmakers rally against KU license plate “Missouri happens to be a state where we’ve got a lot of graduates that would love a license plate,” he said. “It has nothing to do with the University of Missouri.” Two state senators, Kurt U. Schaefer, R-Columbia, and Bill Stouffer, RNapton, issued a press release Monday declaring their intentions to block the measure. Stouffer is a co-chairman of the Joint Committee on Transportation Oversight and the chairman of the Senate Trans-

portation Committee. He said he thought it was “pretty reasonable” to assume that the proposal wouldn’t make it out of the transportation oversight committee. After the news that KU was pursuing a Missouri license plate, Stouffer said his email hadn’t lit up like that since the Missouri House speaker announced plans to honor political commentator Rush Limbaugh in the state’s Hall of Famous Missourians.

other universities’ license plates — Pittsburg State University and the University of Arkansas are two examples — Stouffer said KU was a special case. “We can’t sell our souls,” Stouffer said. But wouldn’t that mean Missouri is losing out on a new revenue source? “KU’s turning down a lot of revenue by not playing MU in football,” Stouffer said. He said he wouldn’t be able to look his grandchildren in the eyes if he allowed the KU license plate to go forward. “My goal is just to save the world from a mythical bird invasion in the state of Missouri,” Stouffer said.

School board favors tweaking middle school boundary line By Christine Metz cmetz@ljworld.com

For years, students in the north-central part of the Lawrence school district have been bused across the city to attend Liberty Memorial Central Middle School. On Monday night, parents asked the school board to change the boundary so their children could attend West Middle School. The Peterson Road neighborhood, which is north of Peterson Road and east of Kasold Drive and extends to the Kansas River, is within a boundary that funnels students to Deerfield School and then Liberty Memorial Central. West Middle School is several miles closer, and students from the neighborhood pass through the school’s boundary to get to Liberty Memorial Central. The great majority of Deerfield students go on to West, and students from the Peterson Road neighborhood could walk home from school if they went there.

“We have been asking for years,” said Melissa Jakmouj, who lives within the neighborhood and has one child who transferred to West and two others in Deerfield. “It is just so much closer to West.” The boundary was put in place decades ago to relieve overcrowding at West. However, that problem ended when Southwest Middle School was built in 1994. Back then, there wasn’t much more than a farm house in that section of town, Jakmouj said. At Monday’s meeting, the district’s chief operations officer, Kyle Hayden, said the boundary was essentially a false one, since many parents were already transferring their students to West. Those transfers have been granted because West isn’t at capacity. During this school year, 60 percent of the sixth- and seventh-grade students in the neighborhood, a total of 28, transferred to West. “The impact currently is not much at all. They

are already choosing to go to West,” Hayden said. If the boundary shifted, the biggest change would be who would cover transportation cost. Currently, the state of Kansas pays to bus students who live 2.5 miles or more from school. Currently all the students attending Liberty Memorial Central qualify for transportation, but not all of them would at West. If the boundary changed and students wanted to continue attending Liberty Memorial Central, they could request a transfer. But the district would no longer bus them to the school. By district policy, it’s too late to make any changes for next school year. The earliest the boundary could change is at the start of the 2013 school year. The board agreed to vote on the issue at an upcoming meeting, which would be open for public comment. — Reporter Christine Metz can be reached at 832-6352.

K-State hires top scientist to head food safety center MANHATTAN (AP) — Kansas State University has hired a renowned North Carolina State University pharmacology expert to head its animal health and food safety center. Jim Riviere, director of the Center for Chemical Toxicology Research and Pharmacokinetics at North Carolina State, will head the Manhattan school’s Institute of Computational Comparable Medicine, which uses mathematical modeling to try to improve animal health and food safety. Riviere, who will also be a distinguished professor in the university’s College of Veterinary Medicine, is the first member of the National Academy of Sci-

ence to join the Kansas State faculty. He begins Aug. 1 at an annual salary of $260,000, The Topeka Capital-Journal reported. Ron Trewyn, vice president of research at Kansas State, said the National Academy “is the highest recognition in scientific ranks” and the university also hopes to get current faculty elected to the National Academy. “It’s great for the institution, it’s great for Manhattan and it’s great for the state of Kansas,” Trewyn said. “It brings an excitement and knowledge that the university can leverage.” Riviere said he was attracted to K-State in part by its reputation as a lead-

officers told Smith they found his daughter and asked him to go to police headquarters. There, officers questioned Smith about the alleged arrangement to have his wife murdered, according to acting U.S. Attorney David Ketchmark’s office.

ment throughout. According to federal and Douglas County court ljworld.com records, the couple filed for bankruptcy in 2003, 609 N.H. (offices) • 645 N.H.

mesh,” Calwell said. As for the health of the river, Calwell said studies show that dredging degrades the river bed and bank. And it stirs up pollutants that have settled at the bottom of the river, harming the native plants and wildlife, she said. The five businesses that are filing for dredging permits were contacted for this story. They did not immediately return phone calls or answer the phone. American Rivers has requested that the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers

complete a new environmental impact study on dredging, deny all new permits and tonnage requests and end dredging on the river by 2017. Calwell said they don’t want to put the companies out of business but would like to see them move to mining operations in the Kansas River Valley over the next five years. “We don’t think it is appropriate to expand dredging on the Kaw,” Calwell said.

On Monday, the Legislature, having already broken the 90-day mark in the session on Friday, lurched in fits and starts with no noticeable progress on tax cuts, the budget or redistricting. Sen. Les Donovan, RWichita, and a leader on the House-Senate tax conference committee announced that the committee would start negotiating again after last week’s legislative blow up over the issue. Then he said the meeting was canceled. Then he said there would be a meeting Tuesday. “I want to get something out of committee, on the floor (of the Senate), so we can vote,” Donovan said. While conservatives

have embraced larger tax cuts, moderate Republicans and Democrats are pushing for a smaller plan. They are urging Brownback to veto the larger cut. The Kansas NAACP called on Brownback to veto the measure, saying the legislation would “bankrupt our state.” The group added, “While the people who feel the adverse cuts of these programs will see their tax burden increase, the wealthiest among us may actually see their fiscal contribution to society lessen. This hardly resembles economic justice.”

BRIEFLY Prairie Moon gets grants for garden Prairie Moon Waldorf School recently was selected to receive a $2,000 grant to support its garden and the teaching of gardening to elementary-level students. The grant is from the Whole Kids Foundation, the charitable affiliate of Whole Foods Market, and is in partnership with the Food, Family, Farming Foundation which supports sustainable agricultural practices, and FoodCorps Inc., which combats childhood obesity and diet-related disease. Prairie Moon, the state’s only Waldorf school, opened in 2003 and is located on seven acres of land just northeast of Lawrence Municipal Airport. It has about 60 children, ranging from preschoolers to fifth-graders. Rick Mitchell, a school founder, said gardening is traditional in Waldorf schools. “We will focus on deepening our curriculum in the subject, and use the funds to further develop the garden and the teaching of gardening to our elementary school students,” said Mitchell, who teaches the gardening class. The school also received a $5,000 grant from the Elizabeth Schultz Environmental Fund of the Douglas County Community Foundation to construct a greenhouse. Mitchell expects the work to begin this summer.

BRIEFLY Funding urged for anti-violence services TOPEKA — Advocates for victims of domestic violence on Monday urged legislators to approve $1 million for services, saying that assaults are increasing. “Victims’ needs are more acute; their situations more lethal; and their lives much more complicated,” said the Kansas Coalition Against Sexual and Domestic Violence. Several legislators LEGISLATURE are pushing for $1 million in funding to help provide personal, medical and legal assistance to victims. The coalition recently announced it was parting ways with the Kansas Department of Social and Rehabilitation Services, saying that the state agency was putting new requirements into a contract that would be harmful to victims. As a result of that controversy, several legislators are proposing an alternative funding source as a way to bypass those requirements. That proposal is among numerous issues being worked on by a House-Senate budget committee.

EAST LAWRENCE

Recycling center owner seeks to move business ———

Plan contingent on land use approvals By Chad Lawhorn clawhorn@ljworld.com

A battle over the future of an east Lawrence recycling center that has drawn the ire of neighbors may be averted. The owner of the 12th and Haskell Recycling Center has finalized a deal to purchase two pieces of industrial property that will allow him by this fall to move the recycling center about a block north, if city officials give the project the necessary land use approvals. “The owner thinks it will be a much better situation for everyone involved,” said Brad Finkeldei, a Lawrence attorney who represents the 12th and Haskell center and its owner Bo Killough. Killough last week finalized a deal to purchase a vacant industrial building at 1050 E. 11th St. and a 5-acre outdoor storage area that previously served the Schmidt Builders Supply store at 1000 E. 11th St. Both pieces of property are just northeast of the 11th and Haskell intersection. The location is only a block away from the recycling center’s current site, but it is much farther removed from neighbors, who have complained the operation’s salvageyardlike noises and smells aren’t conducive to a residential area. The new location borders the railroad tracks to the north, city’s trash truck lot on the south, and other industrial buildings on the east and the west. The current site for the center is across the street from a residential neighborhood. One of the chief opponents of the center’s current location, though, said her group was still trying to figure out what it thought of the new proposal. “We really have a mixed reaction to this,” said Andrea Repinsky. “It sounds like a good change, but we’re still worried about how this will work out for other residents in Brook Creek and East Lawrence.” The project now will hinge on city actions. The

We really have a mixed reaction to this. It sounds like a good change, but we’re still worried about how this will work out for other residents in Brook Creek and East Lawrence.” — Andrea Repinsky, opponent of the 12th and Haskell Recycling Center’s current location project will need several land use approvals from City Hall, including approvals of a site plan and a special use permit. Finkeldei said the city will receive those applications by May 21, which would put the project on track to be heard by the City Commission in August or September. Finkeldei said the plans will show many parts of the operation will occur inside, such as the salvaging of copper and many types of scrap metal. But the project will seek to have outdoor storage, and also will propose reopening an area where the public can drive up to recycle paper, plastic, glass and other such materials. The center had offered that service for a number of years but closed that portion of the business in December when tensions between the city and the center grew. City inspectors have found the current site at 12th and Haskell to be out of compliance with the city’s land use code. Finkeldei previously had said his client was considering appealing that ruling to Douglas County District Court. Now, Finkeldei is asking the city to simply delay any enforcement action at the 12th and Haskell site in order to give Killough time to get the business moved. “He definitely wants to be in a position to move the business this fall,” Finkeldei said.

Budget CONTINUED FROM PAGE 3A

on how to reverse that trend. “The way we are framing it is we realize our expenditures are growing at a faster rate than our revenues, and we know that is not sustainable,” said Casey Toomay, budget manager for the city. The numbers put into perspective the key question city commissioners likely will grapple with this budget session: Can more expenses be cut without sacrificing city services, or is it time for the city to increase its revenue through higher taxes and fees? City commissioners won’t be eager to either cut services or raise taxes. A third option also may emerge: wait and hope that an economic recovery takes hold by 2013, which could allow the city’s tax collections to grow without an increase in tax rates. Toomay said the outlook for such a boost in revenue currently is mixed. The city is projecting sales tax revenue to grow by 3.5 percent in 2013. But there are signs thus far that an even larger increase is possible. Through the first quarter of 2012, sales tax collections are up about 4 percent for the year. But Toomay said the city is forecasting a 1 percent decline in the city’s assessed valuation, meaning the city will be slated to collect less in property taxes in 2013.

As far as further cuts to expenses, Toomay said it is getting more challenging to make cuts that don’t affect service levels, especially as fuel, utilities and health care costs continue to rise at rates far greater than inflation. “We try to pride ourselves on making cuts in ways that the public doesn’t see them, but that is getting harder,” Toomay said. Here’s a look at several budget-related issues that will be presented to commissioners at today’s meeting:

The city collected $15.45 million in property taxes in 2011, up from $14.97 million 2010. That’s an increase of 3.2 percent. Sales tax revenues increased at an even greater rate. Sales tax collections were up 4.5 percent to $30.83 million.

 The city’s payroll expenses for the general fund, which covers most city employees but not those in utilities, solid waste and other departments largely supported by fees, increased by $987,000 in 2011, or 2.6 percent. The bulk of the increase, though, didn’t go to higher wages but rather funded larger contributions to the pension systems the city participates in. The city in 2011 saw its pension requirements to KPERS and KP&F funds increase by about $450,000. Toomay said she’s forecasting a similar increase for 2013. City officials don’t set those contribution levels. Instead cities must pay at the rates established by the public

pension funds if they want to continue to participate in the pension systems.

Commissioners will be presented with a request to help the county fund about $7 million worth of upgrades to the city-county emergency dispatch center. Toomay said city officials hope to develop a multiyear funding plan for the upgrades, and to better understand how the costs would be split between the city and the county.

Continued funding of the city-county sustainability coordinator position will be up for consideration as part of the 2013 budget. The position originally was funded through a grant from federal stimulus funds. Once that grant expired the city and county reached a funding agreement that split costs 60 percent from the county and 40 percent from the city. The original agreement has expired, and the city and county will have

to determine whether to continue funding the position. City commissioners will meet throughout the summer to craft the 2013 budget, which is slated to receive final approval in early August. — City reporter Chad Lawhorn can be reached at 832-6362. Follow him at Twitter.com/clawhorn_ljw.

34, of Kansas City, Kan., after he was accused of causing a disturbance early Monday at Motel 6, 1130 N. Third St. Sgt. Trent McKinley, a police spokesman, said a motel clerk reported at 2:20 a.m. the man had pulled fire alarms, turned off power breakers and destroyed a wireless router in the hallway. He was also accused of entering another guest’s room without authority and throwing two oranges at the clerk, striking her twice. Police believe the man was under the influence of drugs. He was taken to the Douglas County Jail on charges of battery, criminal damage, trespassing and a false fire alarm. He posted $400 cash bond and was given notice to appear in Lawrence Municipal Court. • Police are investigating an incident from early Saturday morning in which a woman was found injured in the hallway of an apartment in the 1700 block of West 24th Street. Sgt. Trent McKinley, a Lawrence police spokesman, said the call at 5:35 a.m. Saturday was initially reported as a rape. The woman was very intoxicated and not cooperative with officers or

hospital staff, which made it difficult to ascertain what had happened, he said. The woman’s injuries were not believed to be lifethreatening, McKinley said. • A 44-year-old Lawrence woman was arrested on an aggravated battery charge early Monday after she was accused of cutting a man’s hand with a steak knife during a domestic disturbance in the 2500 block of Redbud Lane. Sgt. Trent McKinley, a Lawrence police spokesman, said paramedics treated the victim at the scene before 1 a.m., but he declined to go to the hospital for further treatment. Douglas County prosecutors filed an aggravated battery charge against Marjorie Anne Freeman, and a judge set her bond at $15,000.

which initially sent four people to area hospitals. According to a Kansas Highway Patrol report, Amy J. Blacketer, 34, Leavenworth, was driving a 1994 Ford car north to cross U.S. Highway 24 onto Ferguson Road when she failed to yield to a westbound 1997 Dodge Caravan and the two collided. Blacketer was treated and later released at StormontVail Regional Health Center, Topeka. Her passenger, Joshua D. Goff, 26, Leavenworth, was taken to Kansas University Hospital in Kansas City, Kan., where spokesman Bob Hallinan said on Monday a condition update was not available. The occupants of the Caravan, Gary W. Kraus, 66, and Susan L. Kraus, 67, both of Grantville, also were taken to Stormont-Vail. Gary Kraus was released, and Susan Kraus was in fair condition Monday, a hospital spokeswoman said. All four people involved wore seat belts.

FIRE CALL UPDATE • Fire investigators have determined a fire early Saturday caused $75,000 worth of damage to a home at 1730 Lake Alvamar Drive. “The dwelling was occupied at the time of the fire,” said Chief Mark Bradford of Lawrence-Douglas County Fire Medical. “It is important

to note that the occupants were awakened by smoke alarms, and the ability to vacate and quickly notify the fire department resulted in no civilian injuries and reduced property damage.” Bradford said investigators determined the fire was an accident caused by landscape mulch covering an in-ground lighting source. The fire extended to inside the house. When fire crews arrived at 4:08 a.m., they found the fire in an interior utility and storage area on the home’s lower level. Bradford said the fire was under control at 5 a.m. Saturday. According to Douglas County records, the property is appraised at $725,000.

Brownback signs anti-abortion bill

TOPEKA — Gov. Sam Brownback has signed legislation giving more legal protection to Kansas health care providers who refuse to participate in abortions. Brownback’s office announced the signing Monday, although it took place last week. The governor is a strong abortion opponent and had been expected to sign the measure, which takes effect in July. Kansas law already protects doctors and hospitals from being forced to participate in abortions. This year’s measure extends the socalled “conscience” protection to other health care facilities. The legislation also says no individuals are required to refer patients for abortion services, or to participate in administering any drug they believe terminates a pregnancy. Abortion opponents say the measure simply updates existing law. Supporters of abortion rights predict it will restrict access to birth control.

Lawrence keeps ‘Bicycle Friendly’ title, but group says work remains By Karrey Britt

is one, too. They were among a list of award winners released Monday by the League of American Bicyclists. “I think the competition is on,” said Bill Nesper, vice president of programs for the League of American Bicyclists. “Who’s going to be the best? Who’s going to set the standard for the state?” There’s only one other bicycle-friendly community in Kansas and that’s Shawnee, and the three are among only 214 communities nationwide. While Manhattan just earned its designation, Lawrence has been dubbed bicycle friendly by the organization since 2004, reearning the title in 2008 and this year. The League of State closer to using American Bicyclists began handing out the awards in casinos for KPERS 2003, and there are four levTOPEKA — Kansas legislaels: bronze, silver, gold and tors moved closer Monday platinum.

Education. Nesper said Lawrence needs to improve its outreach to children by providing more education in schools. He said some communities are part of a national Safe Routes to School program. He said the community needs to do a better job of educating adults, too.

Ridership. If Lawrence improves its infrastructure and education, then maybe more people will ride their bicycles. He said Lawrence’s bicycle ridership is below the norm for a college town. “You have a new bike plan, which is really encouraging. You have a new Complete Streets Policy,” Nesper said. “I think you are right on the cusp of something really great in Lawrence.” Among other accomplishments in the past four years:

Lawrence Central Rotary launched a website called RideLawrence.com which promotes bicycling and adding bicycle parking.

Burroughs Creek Trail, which runs from 11th to 23rd streets, was completed. The 1.7-mile-long trail can be used for bicycling and other activities.

A bicycle rideability map has been created and is available on the city of Lawrence’s website. The map assists riders in choosing routes most applicable to their skill level.

The first Community

Bike Ride was held July 2011 and it drew 125 participants. This year’s event will be July 21 at the Lawrence Rotary Arboretum. Jessica Mortinger, transportation planner for Lawrence-Douglas County Planning and Development Services, said while the city has made progress, there’s plenty of work ahead. She said the LawrenceDouglas County Metropolitan Planning Organization has received $100,000 from the Kansas Department of Transportation to conduct a countywide bicycle study. The study will start in late summer or early fall and take about one year. It will help guide future plans on improving and expanding bicycle routes. Lisa Hallberg, a bicycling enthusiast, said she wouldn’t have considered the town bicycle-friendly until two years ago when she began serving as chairwoman of the Lawrence-Douglas County Bicycle Advisory Committee. Now, she’s more aware of the efforts being made and the time it takes to complete each one. “I have a very different view about how the city is really trying to put in place better accessibility for all users in transportation,” she said. “It’s an evolving process. That car-centric way of thinking is pretty entrenched but they are doing the best that they can and they’ve accomplished a lot in the last four or five years.” Her goal is to become the first Kansas community to earn the silver-level award. Falling behind Manhattan is not an option, she said.

Obama ads target Romney’s record on jobs Government adopts By Ken Thomas Associated Press

WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama tried Monday to tarnish Mitt Romney as a corporate titan who got rich by cutting rather than c r e a t i n g Obama jobs, opening a new effort to undercut the Republican’s claims that his background of business success is Romney just what America needs in a time of deep economic uncertainty. At the center of the Obama campaign effort are a new website, TV ad and online video including interviews with onetime workers at a Kansas City, Mo., steel mill that Romney’s former private equity firm failed to successfully

restructure. Workers lost jobs and health care benefits. Pensions were reduced. “It was like a vampire. They came in and sucked the life out of us,” says steelworker Jack Cobb. Add John Wiseman: “Bain Capital walked away with a lot of money that they made off this plant. We view Mitt Romney as a job destroyer.” Countering the criticism, Romney’s campaign said the former Massachusetts governor welcomes an election-season conversation with Obama about jobs. Romney’s campaign has argued that he helped spur tens of thousands of jobs in the public and private sectors and pointed to a net job loss during Obama’s presidency, most of which occurred during the first few months of his administration. Obama has touted the creation of 4.2 million new jobs over the last 26 months as his policies took hold. Both candidates are seeking to pivot to voters’ No. 1 issue, the economy, and away from the social

WASHINGTON — Ron Paul, the congressman from Texas and a favorite of tea partyers, effectively ended his presidential campaign Monday but Paul urged his fervent supporters to continue working at the state party level to cause havoc for presumptive Republican nominee Mitt Romney. In an email to supporters, Paul urged his liberissues that dominated after the president announced his support for gay marriage last week. Obama steered clear of criticizing Romney during a commencement speech at Barnard College in New York, though he included a passing reference to nearby Wall Street, saying: “Some folks in the

tarian-leaning backers to remain involved in politics and champion his causes despite the apparent end of his presidential aspirations. Paul has found success in wrecking the selection process for delegates to the party’s late-summer nominating convention in Tampa, Fla., and trumpeted that he has delayed Romney’s expected nomination. “Moving forward, however, we will no longer spend resources campaigning in primaries in states that have not yet voted,” Paul said in his statement. financial world have not exactly been model corporate citizens.” He left the more direct skewering to surrogates and dispatched Vice President Joe Biden to Ohio to castigate Romney over his record at Bain. Romney, meanwhile, prepared to deliver a speech today in Iowa on reducing the huge federal debt.

Pakistani suggests reopening border to NATO By Sebastian Abbot Associated Press

ISLAMABAD — Pakistan’s foreign minister suggested Monday that the country should reopen its Afghan border to NATO troop supplies, saying the government has made its point by closing the route for nearly six months in retaliation for U.S. airstrikes that killed 24 Pakistani troops. Reopening the border risks a domestic backlash in Pakistan given Washington’s refusal to apologize for last year’s attack, which it says was an accident. But it could help ensure Pakistan has a role in the future of Afghanistan as NATO prepares to retool its strategy there during a major conference that starts Sunday in Chicago.

Pakistan’s presence would benefit the U.S.-led coalition as well, since the country is seen as key to striking a peace deal with the Taliban and their allies in Afghanistan that would allow foreign troops to withdraw without the nation descending into further chaos. The supply line running through Pakistan to landlocked Afghanistan will be key to that withdrawal as NATO pulls out more than a decade’s worth of equipment. It has been critical for shipping in supplies as well, although the U.S. has reduced its reliance on Pakistan in recent years by using a more costly route through Central Asia. Shams Shahwani, a senior official in Pakistan’s Petroleum Tanker Owners Association, said he

By Lauran Neergaard Associated Press

WASHINGTON — The Obama administration adopts a landmark national strategy to fight Alzheimer’s today, setting the clock ticking toward a deadline of 2025 to finally find effective ways to treat, or at least stall, the mind-destroying disease. But work is beginning right away: Starting today, embattled families and caregivers can check a new one-stop website, www.alzheimers.gov, for easy-to-understand information about dementia and where to get help. The National Institutes of Health is giving the green light to some major new studies of possible therapies, including a form of insulin that’s squirted into the nose. And the world’s top Alzheimer’s scientists gathered this week to decide what other research should take place next in order to meet that ambitious 2025 deadline. “These actions are the cornerstones of an historic effort to fight Alzheimer’s disease,” Health and

The maker of the beef product dubbed “pink slime” by critics said Monday it was laying off 86 employees from its corporate office in South Dakota, citing what it calls a misinformation campaign about a product that food-industry experts agree is safe. Beef Products Inc. executives said this is the second round of layoffs resulting from the intense negative publicity about the company’s lean, finely textured beef. BPI has said it took a “substantial” financial hit after social media exploded with worry over the product and an online petition sought its ouster from schools.

No sign of shareholder revolt against Dimon By Pallavi Gogoi Associated Press

NEW YORK — JPMorgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon owned up to stock analysts and went on TV to accept blame for a $2 billion trading mistake. Next he faces shareholders, who are considerably less wealthy since the blunder was disclosed. While Dimon may be greeted by colorful protesters and tough questions at the JPMorgan annual meeting in Tampa, Fla., on Tuesday, shareholders are unlikely to call for his head. For them, facing the crisis without Dimon might be a bigger nightmare than the trading loss itself. “When a bank is dealing with this sort of a challenge, you want someone of his caliber to shepherd it through,” said longtime JPMorgan shareholder Michael Holland, chairman and founder of money manager Holland & Co. That has not been a universal opinion since Thursday, when Dimon disclosed to analysts that the bank had lost $2 billion by making a bad bet with so-called credit derivatives. Investors lopped almost 10 percent off JPMorgan’s stock price the next day, and 3 percent more on Monday. Since Dimon made the announcement, almost $20 billion in market value has evaporated. Over the weekend, Elizabeth Warren, architect of

But researchers are pushing for a big change in how potential therapies are tested, by trying them in people who don’t yet have full-blown Alzheimer’s symptoms, when it may be too late to help. “There’s a sense of optimism” thanks to some new discoveries, Dr. Francis Collins, director of the National Institutes of Health, told scientists at the Alzheimer’s Research Summit on Monday. But, “we need to figure out exactly where is the best window of opportunity” to battle back Alzheimer’s, Collins added.

Rec questions It might be better to get a number of questions about a proposed recreation complex answered before moving ahead with actions that will commit taxpayer dollars.

A

t tonight’s meeting, Lawrence city commissioners are scheduled to consider the first formal action on a proposed super-large recreation complex at the northeast corner of the intersection of Sixth Street and the South Lawrence Trafficway. The site, approximately 150 acres, is to be annexed into the city and given the appropriate zoning to accommodate various athletic and commercial activities. The project is on a fast-track schedule even though there are many aspects of the development that deserve public scrutiny, perhaps before the acreage is taken into the city and assigned specific zoning. For example, what will be the cost of extending city services to the city, and who will pay these costs: the city, the developers or the users? Then there’s the matter of who will be in charge of the proposed development and facilities: the public, city recreation officials, university athletic department officials or coaches, the developer or one or two large athletic companies such as Nike or Adidas? One of the features of the proposed recreation center is an outdoor running track. It is reported one of the parties pushing for the development claimed he could deliver the Kansas University track, now in Memorial Stadium to the development. Another individual associated with the track has proposed an AAU track. What’s the difference and why should it matter? The big question is who could use the track. KU does not allow the general public to use its track. Would it change policies and allow the public to use its track if it is part of the northwest development? It is believed an AAU track would be open for the public’s use. Which would Lawrence residents prefer? Another major question is who would control and schedule events at the center. The major feature of the development is said to be a massive indoor arena that could house eight or more full-sized basketball courts. Who has dibs on using these courts, and who will pay for their use? It would seem these and many other matters should be discussed by city and university officials, maybe even county officials, before the project is set in motion and taxpayers are asked to pay the bills. A first-class, world-class recreation development would be a tremendous asset for Lawrence, KU and a large area of northeast Kansas. It could be a winner in every respect. However, the cozy relationship of the developers, university officials and City Hall people and the almost-record pace with which this project is being packaged and advanced, raises the question of whether an expensive and fully loaded cart is being approved before the horse (the public and its tax dollars) is in place and ready to deliver the goods.

So in the end he was found wanting. Not partisan enough. Not conservative enough. Not humble enough. Not local enough. Ultimately, Richard G. Lugar, elected to the Senate during America’s bicentennial celebration — a very long time ago — was not modern enough. Lugar just turned 80. He long ago abandoned his Indiana home if not his Indiana roots. He was that rare lawmaker living in a rarefied world, representing not only his state, not only his country, but also the public interest. In our politics there is a fine line between representing the broader interests and sowing resentment. Lugar did the first for a long while, then the second overtook him. This is not to say Republicans with a moderate impulse are somehow more patriotic, or more selfless, or more valuable than Republicans of a more caffeinated conservatism. This is merely to say that, when it came to international affairs, especially nuclear proliferation, Lugar thought himself a citizen of the world — not in a haughty way, but in a high-minded way. That was bred in him — in the study hideaways of Denison University, where he was a standout student, and then in the hushed, elitist halls of Oxford, where he was a Rhodes scholar and schooled in the Oxbridge ethos of service and serene dispassion. He, more than the more famous Rhodes scholar of later years, Bill Clinton, personified the perspective of the middle common room. Lugar worked to become elite in the days when the word, not always a synonym for snobby, was an object of reverence rather than oppro-

It wasn’t, however, a time of purity; Lugar was elected in a decade despoiled by Vietnam and Watergate, when men of elite background were derided for being the best and the brightest (and earned that derision), and when most of the experts, particularly in foreign affairs, were wrong. In that time and in decades to follow — he now is the longest-serving Republican in the Senate — Lugar wasn’t so much the senior senator from Indiana as the senior spokesman for stability. When he entered the Senate, the highest compliment in the Capitol and the fondest measure of conservatism was to say of a lawmaker that he was sound — that he had sound principles, that he had a sound perspective. But, again, that was a long time ago. Lugar moved from Indianapolis to Washington in 1977 with a heavy burden. He had defeated Sen. Vance Hartke at a time when conservative-oriented Indiana incongruously had two liberal Democratic senators,

but he carried an inevitable and unenviable sobriquet in the angry aftertaste of Watergate. He was Richard Nixon’s favorite mayor. But Nixon was gone by then, and soon that description faded away. Sen. Lugar defied expectations. He wasn’t so much bipartisan as above partisanship. He’d gone to Oxford, but his college there was Pembroke, known for its informality, and his wife, Charlene, known universally as Char, had no patience for the formalities of Senate wives, preserving as inviolate her weekly bowling night. Lugar had a sunny disposition — no man in either caucus had a smile so permanent as Dick Lugar’s — but he knew deep disappointment. The world didn’t behave with Midwestern rationality. George H.W. Bush inexplicably chose his junior colleague, Dan Quayle, much underestimated but not as estimable as Lugar, for vice president in 1988. Lugar’s presidential race was regarded as one of those worthy exercises, like Bruce Babbitt’s, that might have prevailed in a more sober era but not in our own. He finished seventh in Iowa in 1996. Lugar’s rejection last week in a state that voted for Barack Obama for president four years ago is a variation of an oft-told tale. Some lawmakers go to Washington and adopt its warm colorations, thriving in the policy debates, coming to believe that the whole country is as riveted as they are by the votes of an obscure subcommittee, that it is watching as carefully as they are the feints in the cloakroom and the maneuvers on the floor, that it is as committed as they are to issues beyond their ken, or county.

Sen. J. William Fulbright of Arkansas, another Rhodes scholar and Pembroke man, was deceived that way and was defeated that way, too — beaten in 1974 as Lugar was, in a bruising primary. Rep. Al Ullman of Oregon, so powerful as chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee that he was one of the men to see in Washington, was upended in 1980. Speaker of the House Thomas Foley of Washington lost his bid for a 16th term in 1994. Then there was Sen. Albert Gore Sr. He was a lion of the Senate, thinking himself more a national politician than a lawmaker from Carthage, Tenn. He was defeated in 1970 by GOP Rep. Bill Brock, a loss that devastated him and left an indelible impression on his son, who was for a time repelled by politics, offended by its ungracious caprice. All committed the crime of going native in the capital. Lugar will leave the Senate in January with garlands of praise from both sides of the aisle; the man, after all, lived in the aisle, then paid for it. He will be regarded as a symbol of old virtues, and lawmakers with highly paid speechwriters almost certainly will find themselves uttering the old Hamlet chestnut that they will not see his like again. Maybe in a brighter time they will. Maybe Richard Mourdock, now Indiana’s Republican nominee for Senate, will emerge as a lawmaker of stature and soundness, much like the man who sent Fulbright unceremoniously into retirement. His name was Dale Bumpers, and he was admired by Republicans and Democrats alike. It can happen. — David M. Shribman is executive editor of the Pittsburgh PostGazette.

Unwise cuts To the editor: Why would Gov. Brownback and Mike O’Neal and radical right-wing Republicans force through a budget bill that calls for a huge deficit by 2017? Their theory may be that leaving more money for the rich will stimulate job growth and general prosperity, but this has been thoroughly disproved. Why would they continue down this dead-end path? I believe we saw their intent here at home with the plan to close our SRS office. They didn’t want to close the office, they assured us; there just wasn’t enough money in the budget — the budget they created. That was small potatoes compared with the cuts needed with the new budget. The cuts again will be made with the excuse that there just isn’t enough money to go around. Again state hospital staffs will be decimated, funds for general health and mental health will be cut, services to the unemployed, the elderly and the disabled will be slashed. School funding will be cut again. The governor simply wants less government, regardless of the effects. You get a sense

Suicide focus

Backup careers

All of the above ultimately translates into millions of U.S. job losses. Big-time layoffs are the end result. These jobs go abroad with tax codes that prevent taxation on profits made abroad from U.S. bigname corporations. There was a time when becoming employed by corporate America came with long-term employment, fine wages and dependable retirement benefits. Those days are gone. After a four-year degree, one might consider a vocational-technical institute to become a highly skilled technician in some field. This will make any college grad more marketable and perhaps open doors to self-employment. Or, if one has the dollars, becoming a career student is as respectable as any other job.

Chicago prep guard pays KU a visit By Gary Bedore gbedore@ljworld.com

Tom Keegan tkeegan@ljworld.com

New York state of mind Free State High senior Lee York’s driver carves a wide arc through the air and even can call to mind the swing of young PGA touring professional Dustin Johnson. “My dad and I, we both know my physical swing has never been the problem,” the long and lean York said after firing a 1-over-par 73 Monday at Eagle Bend, good for third place in the regional. The problem, Lee has come to realize, has been the longest six inches in sports, that minefield between the left and right ears. York and his father, Todd, play together often at Lawrence Country Club. Todd’s talented, but his confidence trumps his talent, which makes him a better golfer. Lee’s more talented, but negative thoughts have haunted him, keeping him from reaching his potential. When Lee hits a bad shot, his father tells him he still can win the hole by holing out. “No, York I can’t,” the son tells him. “The hole’s over.” “No, it’s not.” “Yes, it is.” And so it goes. The relentless father’s persistence paid off with one more conversation that seemed to have gotten through to the son on the eve of the regional, one year after Lee melted down with a 94 and didn’t qualify for a state tournament. Lee York didn’t hole out from the fairway Monday, but he nearly did so on backto-back holes in the midst of a stretch of four consecutive birdies (11, 12, 13, 14), leaving himself six-inch tap-ins. “My dad and I did a lot of talking,” said York, who plans to golf at Colorado Mesa University next season. “He said, ‘Lee, everyone at LCC knows what you’re capable of, and everyone knows what your mental game is.’” After they talked, Lee read. And read. And read. “I sat outside on our porch, just relaxed and read for a good hour and a half,” York said. “It was getting dark.” He re-read Dr. Bob Rotella’s, “Golf is Not a Game of Perfect.” “Today, every single shot, I erased it from my mind, good or bad,” York said. “Between shots, I was listening to the birds, smelling the grass, talking to the competitors.” Just as important was what he didn’t do. “No thrown clubs,” he said. “No kicking and stomping. I might have cursed a little, but no temper tantrums. Very mature round. “I got up a little bit. I got down a little bit. But it was no extreme on either side. I just stayed very confident, steady, stayed in the present. That’s the big thing the book kept talking about, staying in the present.” Same swing as a year ago and 21 strokes better. One more competitor proving golf indeed is a game of inches, none more important than those between the ears.

Kansas University may soon be adding a reinforcement to its backcourt for the 2012-13 men’s basketball season. Milton Doyle, a 6-foot4, 185-pound senior combo guard out of Chicago’s Marshall High, arrived on KU’s campus Monday for an offi-

cial recruiting visit. The firstteam Chicago Sun Times AllPublic League selection and third-team Chicago Tribune all-stater recently decommitted from Florida International following the firing of coach Isiah Thomas. Doyle, who averaged 19 points, seven rebounds and just under five assists per game his senior season, also has Nebraska and Colo-

rado State on his list and recently made a recruiting trip to Bradley, which has since filled its allotment of scholarships. His mom, Lisa Green, tells Rivals.com that KU is her son’s “No. 1 dream school” and, while nothing is official yet, he doesn’t plan to make any other campus visits. “I call him the quiet assassin,” Marshall coach Henry

Cotton told the Chicago Sun Times. “He just goes about his job relentlessly. If he had waited (until second semester), he could have gone anywhere he wanted to, but he was loyal to the people who showed him interest (FIU) when no one else did. That’s Milton Doyle the way he is.” averaged Cotton said the lanky 19 points, 7 rebounds last Please see HOOPS, page 3B season

FREE STATE’S LEE YORK TEES OFF during a regional golf meet Monday at Eagle Bend. The entire FSHS team qualified for state.

FSHS team, four Lions earn trip By Benton Smith basmith@ljworld.com

Free State High junior golfer Alex Green stood about 30 yards across from fellow junior Wilson Hack in the fairway of hole No. 2 Monday afternoon at Eagle Bend Golf Course. Going head-to-head in a Class 6A regional suddendeath playoff, Green watched Hack’s approach drop softly onto the green, about three feet from the hole. “God-dang it, Wilson,” Green yelled across the fairway. Typical golf decorum wasn’t much of a concern at that point for the Firebirds, who already knew their whole team had qualified for state by finishing second at the regional, with a season-best team score of 300 — seven shots behind champion Shawnee Mission East.

Green and Hack each shot 75, which tied Shawnee Mission Northwest’s Collin Weems, forcing a playoff. Weems birdied the first hole to take sixth. Hack’s second shot on the second playoff hole set him up for birdie, and he beat Green for seventh. “I figured I might as well go for it,” Hack said, “because he’s gonna make at least par.” Green had a 15-foot putt that could’ve tied Hack, but he missed it about an inch to the right. “I had putts like that all day,” Green said, “that I just couldn’t make.” There wasn’t much else for the Firebirds to gripe about following their best round of the year. With Hack, Green, Lee York (73, third) Colin Becker (77, tied for 10th), Max Soto (87, 23rd) and Hunter

REGIONAL ROUNDUP

City baseball teams meet for third time By Benton Smith and Matt Tait basmith@ljworld.com, mtait@ljworld.com

There is a sports theory that gets tossed around often about the difficulty of beating the same team three times. The baseball teams from Lawrence and Free State high schools are about to play — at 4:30 p.m. today at College Boulevard Activity Center in Olathe — for the third time in eight days, this time in a Class 6A regional semifinal. After his Lions beat the Firebirds, 3-1 and 7-4, LHS coach Brad Stoll wasn’t giving that three-win philosophy much credit. “That’s an age-old sports cliche, and I think is only

Dedloff (89, tied for 26th), FSHS coach Matt Gudenkauf said the team performed better than it had in the regular season. That allowed FSHS to earn a trip to Monday’s Class 6A state tournament, at Garden City. “That was pretty much our goal the entire year,” Gudenkauf said. “The four guys that scored well today, at one (regular-season) tournament or another, scored well … but I couldn’t get all four of them at the same time.” As regional hosts, Hack said the Firebirds wanted to play significantly better than they did the last time they hosted a tournament. They finished sixth on March 28 at the Free State Invitational. “I think we all knew we were capable of shooting what we did,” Hack said following the regional, “and I think we

really showed that we are a team that can contend with Shawnee Mission Northwest (305, third) and teams like that.” Green said qualifying for state and having four top-10 finishers was an awesome accomplishment. “Our score has shown that we have the talent to compete really well as a team,” the junior said.

LHS sends four to state Lawrence High didn’t crack the top three in the team standings, which kept the Lions from sending their entire team to state. Despite their fourth-place finish (329), four LHS golfers had one of the topfive lowest individual scores among non-qualifying teams. With golfers from SME, Please see GOLF, page 3B

Stoll knows the Firebirds (8-12) would love to win this playoff game, regardless of who beat whom or how many times they’ve played. FSHS coach Mike Hill agreed. “This is do-or-die.

Big 12 has pros, cons

The Associated Press

The president of Florida State University says moving the athletic program from the Atlantic Coast Conference to the Big 12 has several drawbacks to be considered. FSU president Eric Barron sent an email to those who have asked him about the possibility of the Seminoles switching conferences. The email was obtained by the Associated Press and several other news organizations. He writes that negotiations between the school and the conference are not taking place. While he lays out both possible pros and cons for a move, he makes a strong case for staying in the Please see FSU, page 2B

K.C.’s Duffy faces elbow surgery ARLINGTON, TEXAS (AP) — Kansas City Royals left-hander Danny Duffy is facing the likelihood of Tommy John surgery after being diagnosed Monday with a torn ulnar collateral ligament in his pitching elbow. Duffy was put on the 15-day disabled list the same day an MRI revealed the seriousness of the injury, and the Royals said he is expected to get a second opinion from Dr. Lewis Yocum in Los Angeles. Duffy is the second Royals starter to go on the disabled list in less than a week. Right-hander Jonathan Sanchez was put on the 15-day DL last week because of left biceps tendinitis. The 23-year-old Duffy (2-2, 3.90 ERA) faced only three batters in Sunday’s 9-1 win over the Chicago White Sox. After catcher Humberto Quintero saw Duffy shake his arm after a throw, manager Ned Yost and a trainer visited the mound. Duffy was pulled when he said his elbow was the problem. Duffy also experienced tightness in his elbow last month,

ACC, where the Seminoles have competed since 1992. The ACC currently has 12 members and will be adding Pittsburgh and Syracuse as soon as 2013. The Big 12 has 10 members after it replaced Texas A&M and Missouri, which are headed to the Southeastern Conference next season, with West Virginia and TCU. “I want to assure you that any decision made about FSU athletics will be reasoned and thoughtful and based on athletics, finances and academics,� Barron wrote. “Allow me to provide you with some of the issues we are facing:� Barron outlined four points made by those who support a move: Q The ACC is more of a basketball conference than a football league. Q The ACC is too North Carolina centric and the conference’s TV contract gives the stronger basketball schools an advantage. Q The Big 12’s powerful football schools are a better match for Florida State. Q The Big 12’s impending new TV contract might make Florida State $2.9 million more per year than the ACC’s new deal and Florida State needs the money. Barron countered that the ACC shares its football and basketball revenue equally. The only revenue that is not shared equally is certain media rights for women’s basketball and Olympic sports, and that is to Florida State’s benefit. He also points out that Colorado, Missouri, Nebraska and Texas A&M have left the Big 12 over the past two years because the conference does not share revenue equally. Barron wrote the Big 12 is at least as Texas centered as the ACC is North Carolina centered and that the Texas schools are expected to play each other. He wrote that the “most likely scenario� leaves Florida State playing Kansas State, Kansas, Iowa State and West Virginia. Florida State already has problems selling out its home games. Barron wrote that playing those schools would not cure that problem. He also writes that the possible financial gains the school could make under the Big 12 TV contract might not be enough to make up for the cost of competing in that league. Other FSU sports teams would have to make longer road trips and that could eat away any of the financial benefits of a better TV contract in the Big 12. Barron also stated a move to the Big 12 could cost the school its rivalry game against Miami. Plus, “It will cost between $20$25 million to leave the ACC — we have no idea where that money could come from.� Lastly, he added: “The faculty are adamantly opposed to joining a league that is academically weaker ... �

The Duke coach was brought in before the 2008 Games to revive a struggling Olympic team, which had finished a disappointing third in Athens. Krzyzewski and USA Basketball chairman Jerry Colangelo established a player pool to help give the program structure, and the result has been a return to the top of the international game. The Americans won the gold medal in Beijing behind Krzyzewski Kobe Bryant, Dwyane Wade and LeBron James. Two years later, they won the world title with a completely different roster. Krzyzewski says coaching the U.S. team has been “the ultimate honor,� and he’ll continue to be involved with USA Basketball after stepping down. Colangelo, meanwhile, said Monday he would stick around after London to provide the continuity that’s been so key to the Americans’ resurgence.

MLB drops Alfonzo’s ban NEW YORK — Major League Baseball and the players’ union have agreed to drop the 100game suspension imposed on Colorado Rockies catcher Eliezer Alfonzo for a positive drug test because of the same procedural issues that came up in the Ryan Braun case. Alfonzo missed 48 games — the final 15 of last season and the first 33 of this year.

Jay Rodgers was promoted from defensive assistant to replace Nunnely, who coached for 36 years. The 60-year-old Nunnely also coached defensive linemen with the San Diego Chargers (19972008) and the New Orleans Saints (1995-96) after 18 years at the college level, including four as head coach at UNLV.

Union challenge heard today NEW YORK — The NFL players’ union grievance against the league in the Saints bounties scandal will be heard Wednesday. The union claims NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell doesn’t have the authority to hand out discipline for player conduct that occurred before the current collective bargaining agreement was finalized last August. The players argue that a CBA arbitrator, and not Goodell, has the right to decide player punishment under such circumstances, as well as rule on any appeals. Goodell suspended four players, including linebacker Jonathan Vilma for the 2012 season, after a league investigation uncovered a payfor-hits program at New Orleans that ran from 2009-11. Also suspended were Saints defensive end Will Smith for four games; linebacker Scott Fujita, now with Cleveland, for three games; and DE Anthony Hargrove, now with Green Bay, for eight games.

Punishment puzzles brothers By Tom Keegan tkeegan@ljworld.com

Lawrence High senior Logan Henrichs sounded Monday as if he’ll never understand why he was suspended from school for giving his brother Connor a horizontal-mohawk haircut in a private home, a disciplinary action that prevented him from playing the final two legs of the Sunflower League championship. Many have had a difficult time understanding why Henrichs and others were suspended. “I don’t understand, either,” Logan said. “We’ve had countless conversations with everybody, so I don’t know.” This much Logan Henrichs had no trouble understanding about his kid brother Monday: “I’m very proud of him, and I’m proud of the team.” Connor, a sophomore, shot an 80, and Logan, a senior, an 81 at Eagle Bend in the regional, joining teammates Brett Van Blaricum

pitcher Garrett Cleavinger, who struck out nine and allowed three hits in Lawrence’s 3-1 victory on May 7. “They’re gonna make adjustments,” Stoll said. “They saw Cleavinger, and they kind of know what to expect.” What LHS should expect from Free State’s starting pitcher is another matter. Hill said Monday night the Firebirds had not yet named a starter. “You can expect to see multiple people on the mound,” Hill said. That has been the strategy in the other two rivalry games. JD Prochaska, Jacob Caldwell or Ryan Cantrell could start, and Sam Hearnen almost always throws relief.

Softball Lawrence Although they did not meet during the regular season, there is plenty of history surrounding today’s 4:45 p.m. first-round regional softball game between sixth-seeded Lawrence High (5-15) and thirdseeded Topeka High (14-6) at Olathe’s College Boulevard Activity Center. One year ago, these teams squared off for the regional championship in Topeka, where LHS claimed a wild, 12-10 victory and earned a spot in the 2011 state tournament. Although the stakes won’t be quite as high when the two meet today, the goal is the same. “We’re hoping some of

Doyle, who is known for his slashing ability, “is a great player. If had played a little bit more and been out on the circuit a little bit more, he definitely could have played in the McDonald’s All-American game. He’s got natural talent. There is nothing that he can’t do on the floor. He can defend, he can pass, he can shoot it, he can drive to the basket and he can create for others, he can make people around him better and he can make himself better.” Doyle, who last month scored 20 points in the Chicago Public League allstar game, is unranked nationally by Rivals.com. He missed his entire junior season after transferring from Chicago Tilden to Chicago Marshall because of a broken wrist. He did not play AAU ball in July last year, instead concentrating on his academic work.

He carded just two pars, none on a back side that included three birdies, four bogeys and two double-bogeys. Logan wouldn’t accept an excuse offered him. Could it be, he was asked, the suspension rattled him? “I got out and played a good amount,” he said. “I

that carries over,” LHS coach Nick Wood said. “We want the handful of girls who played in that game to show up this year with confidence and help us get it done again.” Doing so won’t be easy, but you would never know it from talking to the LHS players. “We definitely have a good chance,” said Lions third baseman Lauren Byrn, one of four LHS seniors. “We’ve played great defense all year, and our hitting has really come around. If we play clean D and can score some runs, I think we’ll have a good shot.” Freshman pitcher Megan Sumonja (2-5) will start on the mound for the Lions. “We play in a really good conference,” Wood said. “There’s nothing that we’re going to see today that we haven’t seen all year.

Courtney Parker, Sam O’Brien and A’Liyah Rogers have been Free State’s most consistent threats at the plate — each has 29 hits. They are just three of the six Firebirds hitting above .300. Parker leads with a robust .468, O’Brien isn’t far behind at .408, Rogers has

“Doyle is the ultimate sleeper, an underrated talent who fits the cliché ‘his best basketball is ahead of him’ perfectly. It’s true,” wrote Joe Henricksen of the Chicago Sun Times. “Doyle is just scratching the surface. He’s long, wiry, active, extremely athletic and his skill level has improved the more he plays. “Doyle remained a rather unknown (his senior year). Florida International snuck in and nabbed a commitment from Doyle last fall before the kid’s talent blew the top off and he became a hot commodity. Thomas, however, was fired following the season and Doyle was back on the open market. ... You just don’t typically find a talent this late in the recruiting game like Doyle, who has tremendous upside and untapped potential,” Henricksen added. Noted ILprepbullseye. com: “(He is) a stellar athlete who was among top five players in Chicago Public League based on performance this past

season. Excels at slashing and has a tremendous mid-range game.” His mom figures KU will land a commitment. “I would say that it’s his choice. Kansas has already offered a scholarship, but he wanted to go see the school and see how things are at Kansas,” she said. “Milton just wants to spend a little time at Kansas and see what it’s all about. Kansas will be his third official visit (besides FIU, Bradley), so he’s got two visits left. My guess is he’s going to be sold on Kansas, so I don’t think he’ll use his final two visits, but I don’t know for sure.” KU is also awaiting word from University of South Carolina sophomore Damontre Harris, a 6-9 forward who is down to KU and Florida. Anrio Adams, a 6-3 senior combo guard from Seattle’s Rainier Beach High, said again this week he plans to arrive at KU in June for summer school.

played nine on Saturday and 18 on Sunday. There was just something about my drives today, and I couldn’t really figure it out.” Hazing — defined by the school district as an act that “recklessly or intentionally endangers the mental health, physical health or safety of a student” — was the official explanation for the suspension that lasted three days out of school and one day in school. Connor didn’t look as if he his mental or physical health or his safety had been endangered. He looked like a teenager with a new haircut — the horizontal mohawk gave way to an even buzz cut — happy to have played such a fine round of golf on such a big stage. As for the hazing ruling leveled on his brother, he didn’t understand it either. “Freshman year for soccer I had a mohawk,” Connor said. “Someone else shaved my head that year. Not my brother. Nobody got suspended.”

FSHS and SMNW occupying the top 14 slots, Connor Henrichs (80, 15th), Logan Henrichs (tied for 16th, 81) and Brett Van Blaricum and Narito Mendez (84, tied for 19th) were able to punch their tickets to state. “We’re excited,” Mendez said. “We were hoping for a little better individual scores, though. We played all right, not really our best, though, for as much as we play out here.” Van Blaricum and Mendez had the highest scores among state qualifiers at the regional.

“I was right on the line,” Mendez said of making the cut. “I got nervous when I saw the other scores.” An improved back nine salvaged Van Blaricum’s round. “I felt a lot of pressure today,” the senior said, “especially after my horrible front nine (45). I was really mad at myself.” He was 13-over par heading into the 17th hole. Van Blaricum birdied the par-3 and figured he would still be in line to make the state cut if he bogeyed 18. Though he began the 18th with a bad drive, he got back into the fairway and finished with a par 4. That’s when someone told him 84 was the number he needed. “I was so relieved,” Van Blaricum said.

Soccer Free State Throughout this season, Free State’s girls soccer team has been recognized by the Kansas Soccer Coaches Association as one of the best teams in the state. Though the Firebirds (10-4-2) lost three of their last four regular-season games, two of those came against highly rated foes Olathe East and Blue Valley Southwest. FSHS will play host to Gardner-Edgerton (5-11) at 6 tonight. Free State defeated the Trailblazers, 2-0, earlier this season, but played much better than a twogoal advantage would suggest. The Firebirds outshot GEHS, 30-1. Maddie Dieker scored both goals, but Amber Hicks, Kylee Loneker, Chelsea Casady, Regan Keasling, Margaux Gill, Abbey Casady, Hadyn Hutchison and Allix Ice had shots as well. Lawrence Lawrence High’s girls soccer team has experienced plenty of challenges in 2012. After going 3-13 in the regular season, the next test comes at 6 tonight, when the Lions play at Manhattan (13-2-1). The Lions closed their season by defeating Topeka and also recorded victories over Baldwin and Shawnee Mission North. Manhattan is the top seed in the Class 6A Regional No. 2.

Chen, Royals win again

ARLINGTON, TEXAS (AP) — Kansas City starter Bruce Chen was changing speeds, moving pitches inside and outside. Chen kept Josh Hamilton and the Texas Rangers off balance while pitching into the seventh inning for the Royals to win his second start in a row, 3-1 over the AL West leaders Monday night. “Against that lineup, he was unbelievable,” Royals catcher Brayan Pena said. “He kept the ball down, mixed pretty good trying to make sure that the big boys didn’t hurt us. ... He did a great job with the hottest hitter on the planet.” The Rangers were the

top hitting team in the majors, and had 19 hits the previous night. Hamilton, named earlier Monday the AL player of the week for his nine homers and 18 RBIs last week, extended his hitting streak to 14 games with a single and Nelson Cruz hit a massive homer. But Hamilton, the slugger who is hitting .400 and leads the majors with 18 homers and 44 RBIs, didn’t hurt the Royals. He even lost the grip of two bats that flew into the stands while swinging against Chen (2-4). “I think Bruce Chen faced Josh Hamilton about as good as you can face him. Two souvenirs in the

Bruce was just superb,” he said. “He made one mistake, and the pitch wasn’t that bad a pitch, but it was a 2-0 cutter right into Cruz’s hot zone. Besides that, he was spectacular.” Scott Feldman (0-1) allowed two unearned runs over 42⁄3 innings in his second spot start this season. “He certainly gave us a lot more than we expected,” Texas manager Ron Washington said. “Unfortunately, the guy who made the mistake is one who doesn’t make many.”

MAJOR-LEAGUE ROUNDUP

Harper homers; Nats win, 8-5 The Associated Press

National League Nationals 8, Padres 5 WASHINGTON — Bryce Harper hit his first bigleague home run, and Chad Tracy and Xavier Nady each connected in the eighth inning, leading Washington over San Diego on Monday night. Harper became the youngest major leaguer to homer since 1998, going deep on a solo shot to straightaway center field in the third inning off righthander Tim Stauffer. The home run came in the outfielder’s 15th game and 54th at-bat with the Nationals. Washington also lost another player to injury in a season that has been filled with them. Catcher Sandy Leon — making his major league debut — left the game in the fourth inning after spraining his right ankle in a collision at home plate. San Diego

Mets 3, Brewers 1 NEW YORK — Miguel Batista pitched seven shutout innings of four-hit ball, and Daniel Murphy supplied the offense, sending surprising New York past Milwaukee.

PHILADELPHIA SHOOTING GUARD EVAN TURNER (12) GETS PAST Boston forward Kevin Garnett, left, small forward Paul Pierce (34) and guard Rajon Rondo to score the go-ahead basket in the final minute of Game 2 in their NBA Eastern Conference semifinal playoff series on Monday in Boston. The 76ers won 82-81.

76ers 82, Celtics 81 BOSTON — Not this time, Celtics. After letting another fourth-quarter lead slip away in Boston, Philadelphia took it right back and held on to it, fighting off every run the Celtics made down the stretch for a victory Monday night to even the Eastern Conference second-round series at one game apiece. “We knew to expect the same type of game,” said Evan Turner, whose layup with 40.4 seconds to play put Philadelphia ahead to stay. “We did what we needed to do to win this game, just like we didn’t the first time around.” Turner’s layup gave the Sixers a 76-75 lead and Philadelphia clinched it by going 6-for-6 from the free throw line over the final 12 seconds. “We just found a way,” Philadelphia coach Doug Collins said. “All season long we couldn’t win these games and now our guys are believing they can do it. And it is pretty special to watch.” Turner finished with 10 points, Jrue Holiday scored 18 and Andre Iguodala added 13 points, seven assists and six rebounds for the Sixers, who blew a 10-point fourth quarter lead as the Celtics won Game 1. Philadelphia failed to hang on to the lead again, but this time the Sixers outplayed the Celtics down the stretch. Game 3 is Wednesday in Philadelphia. Philadelphia won its first playoff game in Boston since 1982 despite committing a playoff-high 19 turnovers and getting outrebounded 47-36. Every time the Celtics appeared to have regained the momentum, the Sixers came up with an answer. After trailing by eight points entering the fourth quarter, Boston’s Kevin Garnett tied it at 65-all on a turnaround jumper with 4:33 to play. The Celtics had the Sixers on the verge of a turnover when Paul Pierce blocked Lou Williams and the ball went out of bounds with just .9 seconds left on the shot clock. No problem. Lavoy Allen got the inbounds pass and banked in a shot from 22 feet and the Sixers were back in the lead. Garnett scored 11 of his 15 points in the fourth quarter and finished with 12 rebounds. Ray Allen scored 17 points for Boston.

Brandon Bass had 12 points for the Celtics, who couldn’t quite repeat their comeback in the seriesopening 92-91 victory. Philadelphia led 57-49 entering the fourth, but Boston tied it twice before going up 72-71 on Avery Bradley’s three-pointer, setting off a series of shots from beyond the arc. Holiday answered with a 3 for the Sixers, then Ray Allen got the lead right back for the Celtics on a three-pointer with 1:40 left. The Celtics had a chance to extend the lead after forcing the Sixers into a 24-second shot clock violation, but Rajon Rondo missed a shot and Iguodala got the rebound, leading to Turner’s layup to put the Sixers up 76-75 with 40.4 seconds to go. Rondo and Ray Allen both missed shots that would have put Boston ahead, then Rondo fouled Turner with 14.4 seconds left. The Celtics fouled Turner again with 12 seconds and he hit both free throws to extend the lead to 78-76. Fans grew restless as the second half opened with sloppy, choppy play by both teams. Boston led 38-36 at halftime and nearly 7 minutes into the third quarter the score was just 43-41 with the Celtics still ahead.

Thunder 119, Lakers 90 OKLAHOMA CITY — Russell Westbrook had 27 points and nine assists, Kevin Durant added 25 points, and Oklahoma City blasted the weary Lakers in the opening game of the Western Conference semifinals. The Thunder took a 15-point halftime lead, then opened the third quarter with a 15-2 blitz filled with crowd-pleasing three-pointers and dunks. Oklahoma City led by as many as 35 points, getting a measure of vengeance for the elbow Metta World Peace delivered to the head of the Thunder’s James Harden three weeks earlier — and without needing dirty tactics to do it. Thunder starting center Kendrick Perkins limped off after aggravating a hip injury from the first round. Kobe Bryant and Andrew Bynum scored 20 points each for the Lakers and Bynum had 14 rebounds.

Dear Annie: My brother-in-law, “Travis,” has been in a relationship with his girlfriend, “Kristin,” for eight years. They now have two young children. Kristin has cheated on him too many times to count and continues to do so. They fight about it constantly. The problem is that Travis is so wrapped up in what Kristin is doing with various other men that both of them have put their children on the back burner. At the moment, the kids are living with Kristin’s parents. Kristin says the kids are the most important thing to her, but she definitely doesn’t show it. She’s only a mom when it’s convenient for her. Travis is being treated for depression due to his relationship, but, Annie, he is never going to change her into the woman he wants. He refuses to leave her, saying he wants to keep his

Annie’s Mailbox

“family” together, but they are hardly together as it is. I don’t see how this is good for the kids. Travis isn’t innocent, either. He can’t keep a job because he would rather “babysit” Kristin. He is lazy and thinks the world owes him something. As a family, we don’t know what to do. Why can’t he see that this is a toxic relationship? How do we get him to care more about his children instead of their poor excuse for a mother? — Worried Family Dear Worried: Travis

and Kristin have a co-dependent relationship that is going nowhere. And it will continue until one of them decides he or she has had enough. You cannot make this happen. Instead, please concentrate on those kids. Neither parent is fit to raise them. Are Kristin’s parents providing a stable home life? Can you spend more time with the children, taking them out on weekends? Your goal should not be to provide Travis with a better marriage. It should be to help care for those children so they can grow up to be more mature than their parents. Dear Annie: My sister and I are estranged. Our father is in his 80s, and although I have no need to be friends with my sister, I would like us to be able to sit in the same room together for my father’s sake. I do not understand why we have never gelled. My sister says it’s

TBS picks up ‘Cougar Town’ “Cougar Town” (7 p.m. and 7:30 p.m., ABC) will be returning for a fourth season. But not on ABC. Last week, TBS announced it would be airing 15 original episodes of the comedy starring Courteney Cox, as well as repeating the first 61 episodes from its stint on ABC. TBS has rebranded itself as a comedy network with both original shows (including Tyler Perry’s “House of Payne”), Conan O’Brien’s talk show and endless repeats of network fare. Tonight’s TBS lineup consists of six opportunities to watch “The Big Bang Theory.” Other nights offer “Family Guy” marathons. This hardly surprising move marks yet another step toward the rough equivalency of network and cable sitcoms — both in terms of audience size and overall quality. I was struck earlier this year that Nancy Travis’ role in the ABC series “Last Man Standing” seemed just as dated and laugh-track-driven as her turn on TBS’ “The Bill Engvall Show.” So it doesn’t surprise me that the two networks have met somewhere in the middle and are now swapping shows.

Tonight’s season finales

A terrorist threatens to detonate a bomb on “NCIS” (7 p.m., CBS).

Teddy’s big surprise on “90210” (7 p.m., CW).

The Chameleon ensnares the team on a two-hour “NCIS: Los Angeles” (8 p.m., CBS).

The top three thrash it out on “Fashion Star” (9 p.m., NBC).

Amelia enters labor surrounded by friends, or at least colleagues, on “Private Practice” (9 p.m., ABC). Tonight’s other highlights

Two hours of auditions on “America’s Got Talent” (7 p.m., NBC).

Lindsay Lohan guest-stars on a two-hour “Glee” (7 p.m., Fox).

A repeat “American Experience” (7 p.m., PBS, check local listings) profiles Bill Clinton.

Grim conditions take a toll on “Deadliest Catch” (8 p.m., Discovery). Cult Choice After muggers attack his loved ones, a thoughtful architect (Charles Bronson) turns into a violent vigilante in the 1974 shocker “Death Wish” (8 p.m., AMC). Look for a young Jeff Goldblum in his first screen credit, as “Freak No. 1.”

For Tuesday, May 15: This year you have two different themes running through your life. The first few months, you focus on expanding your horizons and realizing an important goal. The second period will start in the summer. You will tend to go within more to process your thoughts. If you are single, you meet people whom you carefully want to check out. If you are attached, the two of you will want more time alone as a couple. 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)  Much more can be accomplished when you are upbeat. Others tend to work with you, with the exception of a key person. Tonight: Hang with a friend. Taurus (April 20-May 20)  You have an enormous wealth of information and a well of creativity. Mix these traits together, and you’ll seem unstoppable. Tonight: Do for you. Gemini (May 21-June 20)  Handle a personal or domestic matter first. Make sure you do not overspend. Tonight: Act like a kid again. Cancer (June 21-July 22)  You are likely to speak your mind, and you’ll be heard, up to a point. Someone makes an implicit demand that you play his or her game. Tonight: Mosey on home. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)  You recently have been skimming through your life when dealing with various people. Somehow you manage to get your message across, but at what cost? Tonight: Allow your mind to drift. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)  Others recently have

because I am jealous of her. I feel we are on different planets. And if her expectation of our relationship is not met, she thinks we cannot have any relationship at all. I wish only the best for my sister, but whenever we get together, it is ugly. Should I continue to push for family time even though I don’t want to be alone with her? My father seems OK with things as they are. — No Family Time Dear Family: We think your father would rather see you individually than watch things get “ugly” in front of him. Would you and your sister consider counseling together? Unless the two of you can work out some kind of detente for Dad’s sake, it might be best to leave ACROSS things as they are. 1 6 — Send questions to 10 anniesmailbox@comcast.net, 14 or Annie’s Mailbox, P.O.

played a dominant role in your life. You wonder when you need to say “enough.” Tonight: Dinner for two. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)  Plunge into each task at hand. You might note that someone or something could be pulling you back. Tonight: Visit with a favorite person. Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)  Enjoy the people you encounter. Though you might not want to start a new relationship, a proclivity to revamp a current one or to work through a problem emerges. Tonight: Let the fun begin. Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)  You move from a place of concern or feeling a bit off to a great sense of self and a source of creativity. A meeting might appear to be going in one direction, but it actually could flip and point to a new path. Tonight: Act like it is the weekend. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)  Sometimes you feel as if you must make the first move. Clearly this activity brings you some happiness, or the result makes it worthwhile. Tonight: Get some quiet time. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)  You might want to indulge someone but feel like you can’t because you will want to go overboard. Know that you can stay within your budget — you just have to be creative. Tonight: Out and about. Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)  Your magnetism attracts many people and results in odd reactions. Do not be surprised if you suddenly have difficulty relating to a loved one. Tonight: Your treat. — The astrological forecast should be read for entertainment only.
