Khatib: ‘We’re not really staffed appropriately to get ahead of crime’
City opens budget study today ——
Significant increases in property tax, water/sewage rates are expected By Chad Lawhorn email@example.com
many in the downtown area, said Leonard Allen, a Westar spokesman. The damaged lines are associated with the Westar substation at Sixth and Tennessee streets, the same place where similar lines led to a similar problem back on Dec. 6. That outage was said to have knocked off about 8,000 customers — including the Douglas County
It is budget season at Lawrence City Hall, which means it also is a season full of questions that often have dollar signs attached to them. Commissioners at an afternoon study session today will begin crafting a budget for 2012, and they’ll do so with what has become a standard warning from the city manager. “It will be very challenging,” City Manager David Corliss said. “I think it will be difficult to cut more personnel and equipment expenses without impacting service delivery.” In other words, cuts that may come to the 2012 budget are more likely to be noticed by residents than those that have been made in past budget years. How much residents will notice likely will depend on how city commissioners answer the questions. Here is a look at several questions that commissioners will face this summer: ● How much will your property tax rate go up? There will be a significant property tax rate increase at City Hall for the first time since 2003. Voters last year approved a 1.5 mill levy increase to fund an $18 million expansion of the Lawrence Public Library. That increase will begin showing up in the 2012 budget. But a bigger question is how this City Commission elected last month feels about property taxes. The last City Commission was loath to raise the mill levy, but two new faces have joined the group. They’ll get a test right away as new police Chief Tarik Khatib is asking for $1.2 million in new funding to add police officers to the force. Funding that request likely would either take a brand new sales tax or an increase in the property tax rate. Add the police request and the alreadyapproved library project together, and that would be about a 3

LAWRENCE POLICE OFFICER LAURIE SCOTT, center, takes information from Haskell Indian Nations University student Joelle Mansfield while investigating a report on a possible stolen bike last month. Police Chief Tarik Khatib is asking the city for a budget increase to add several new officers and detectives; the size of the city’s police force has not increased since 1999.
Police chief seeks to beef up force By George Diepenbrock firstname.lastname@example.org
In the three months since he was tapped to lead the Lawrence Police Department, Chief Tarik Khatib has often mentioned one statistic. In 1999 the department had 79 patrol positions — the same number it is allotted today. The other point he mentions is that Lawrence’s crime rate is higher than that in Overland Park, Olathe and Lenexa in Johnson
County and university communities, such as Norman, Okla., and Boulder, Colo. Khatib said those numbers are keys in a recent request Khatib to city leaders for $1.2 million to add 10 patrol officers, a detective and three sergeants. In a memo, Khatib highlighted targeting certain
crimes such as fraud and property crimes and repeat offenders who have multiple arrest warrants. A $1.2 million increase in funding — to the department’s approximately $14 million budget — would amount to an increase of 1.4 mills to the city’s property tax rate, or $32 per year more annually for a $200,000 home. “The bottom line is, I would like to identify a long-term plan for law enforcement in the community,” Khatib said.
The city in the last decade has added certain officer positions through grants and other means, like school and neighborhood resource officers, without beefing up regular patrol numbers, city officials said. Lawrence Mayor Aron Cromwell said commissioners have also asked the department to do more in recent years without adding positions — like a request for officers be assigned Please see POLICE, page 2A
Outages blamed on power lines weakened by age By Mark Fagan email@example.com
No cinnamon rolls. No croissants. No coffee. And Chuck Magerl, proprietor of WheatFields Bakery, considers himself lucky that the power went off when it did — warming his refrigerators, cooling his ovens and otherwise fouling batches upon batches of baked goods on Sunday morning.
Disaster averted, at least for now. “We’re grateful that it happened this Sunday and hopeful that it won’t happen next Sunday,” Magerl said, of the blackout that lasted from 6 a.m. to about 8:15 a.m. “The idea of thousands of people in here for (Kansas University) graduation in the morning, and trying to figure out where to go, and what to do, and where to eat ... ” A chuckle finished the
thought, but the prospect isn’t funny. The upcoming KU commencement is big business for retailers, for hoteliers, for restaurateurs and everyone else along and astride Massachusetts Street, not to mention seemingly everywhere else in town. And now that the central business district has endured four power outages in a little more than a year, concerns are mounting that
plugging in and turning on might not always produce the desired result. Officials at Westar Energy say Sunday’s outage occurred because a splice failed in underground lines that run through the same manhole. The failure produced a “violent discharge of energy,” enough to damage other lines in the manhole and knock out power to a wider area: nearly 5,000 customers at the outage’s peak,
Brownback signs measure tightening abortion clinic regulations By John Hanna Associated Press Writer
TOPEKA — Kansas will require annual, unannounced inspections of abortion clinics, impose new health and safety rules specifically for them and prevent them from using telemedicine systems to dispense preg-
nancy-terminating drugs under legislation signed Monday by Gov. Sam Brownback. The new law takes effect July 1. Abortion opponents said the changes will protect patients, but abortion rights supporters fear they will drive one or more of Kansas’ three abortion clinics out of business.

Pauline Ikenberry Riley Pauline Ikenberry Riley, 95, passed away on April 2, 2011, in Denver, Colorado. She was born in Overbrook, Kansas, on September 22, 1915, the daughter of Jesse and Leah Ikenberry. She was their last surviving child. She married John L. (Jack) Riley in 1936. They lived in Lawrence, Kansas. In 1969 they moved to Longmont, Colorado, and then later to Golden, Colorado. She was an Avon Representative and a homemaker. Pauline was preceded in death by her husband of 67 years, Jack Riley, in 2004, and her 8 siblings, Lola, Rova, Ora, Ira, Josephine, Pearl, Merle and Hazel. She is survived by her 2 sons, Jim Riley of Houston, Texas, and Mike Riley of Arvada, Colorado; 6 grandchildren, David Riley, Jason

doing abortions, they have to do a lot of them. Medical regulations slow them down,” said Mary Kay Culp, executive director of the anti-abortion group Kansans for Life. “Anything we could do to require the clinics to care more about women than about their profit margins is a good thing.” Kansas’ three abortion clinics are in the Kansas City metropolitan area. A Planned Parenthood of Kansas and Mid-Missouri clinic and the Center for Women’s Health are both in Overland Park, and the Aid for Women clinic is in Kansas City, Kan. The late Dr. George Tiller’s clinic in Wichita was among a few in the U.S. known to perform late-term abortions, but it has been closed since he was shot to death in May 2009 by an anti-abortion activist.
Clinic responses Center for Women’s Health employees declined
comment, but Peter Brownlie, president and chief executive officer of Planned Parenthood of Kansas and MidMissouri, said the goal of the abortion opponents who pushed the legislation was limiting access to such procedures. Jeff Pederson, the Aid for Women clinic’s administrator, said it will be forced to spend $10,000 immediately on a new exit mandated by the law. He said a requirement that physicians at a clinic have privileges with a hospital within 30 miles is problematic because anti-abortion groups pressure hospitals into revoking or not granting such privileges. “It may cause some sort of a lawsuit if it becomes unreasonable,” he said of the new law. So-called telemedicine abortions are an issue because of the increased use RU-486, which accounted for 26 percent of the abortions in Kansas in 2010. That’s about 2,200 abortions, more than double the number in 2005. A Planned Parenthood aff iliate in Iowa uses a telemedicine system to dis-

to foot patrols downtown. Cromwell said that seems to have paid off for downtown safety, but he acknowledged those officers could also be doing something else. “If we were to come up with additional resources for any department, I would at this particular point be most interested in looking at putting those toward the police,” Cromwell said.
Comparisons The new chief, who has spent 19 years as a Lawrence police off icer, said the department generally gets high marks for its interactions with the public, including 80 percent of respondents to a recent city survey indicating they were satisfied with police services. But he said that Lawrence officers tend to be busier than ones in comparable cities and that the crime rate is still a major concern. “We’re not being very effective at reducing crime, but we are good at interacting with people and talking to them,” Khatib said. By plugging the department’s numbers into a 2009 Benchmark City Survey, all Lawrence officers — including detectives — handled, on average, about 400 residentinitiated calls, which was above the average of 337 calls per off icer among the 26 other cities that participated. Olathe averaged 264 calls per officer, and 250 for Overland Park. Boulder had a higher average than Lawrence at 455, and Norman was lower with 368. The 2010 Benchmark City Survey, which will include Lawrence, has not been made public yet. In 2010, Lawrence police off icers handled 115,000 total calls, which include all requests from the public and officer-initiated calls.
pense RU-486 through 16 clinics, and legislators there and in Nebraska have attacked the practice. Abortion opponents worry that the Kansas Planned Parenthood affiliate plans a similar program. “There’s some concern about abortions occurring without face-to-face consultations or close supervision by physicians,” said Rep. Jan Pauls, a Hutchinson Democrat who opposes abortion. Brownlie said his Planned Parenthood affiliate has no such plans but added the new Kansas law will make using RU-486 more difficult by requiring patients to make several trips to a clinic.
Maze of regulations The new law’s enactment ends years of frustration for abortion opponents, who’ve argued the state was lax in regulating the abortion clinics. Gov. Kathleen Sebelius, an abortion rights Democrat, vetoed similar regulations in 2003 and 2005. The health department regulates 158 hospitals and 72 surgical centers, which include the Planned Parent-
CITY TO DISCUSS POLICE FACILITIES NEEDS Lawrence city commissioners are scheduled to discuss the budget during a study session at 3 p.m. today at City Hall, but Mayor Aron Cromwell said the commission likely will have a separate study session later just about long-term goals and plans for the Lawrence Police Department. Police Chief Tarik Khatib’s memo on the department’s issues includes requests for equipment and brings up a desire to have the department housed in one facility — even mentioning approaching the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office and Kansas University Public Safe-
ty Office about a possible shared building. Khatib also called it “extremely beneficial” to include other departments in the discussion, such as Douglas County Emergency Management and Lawrence Municipal Court. The police department is now split, largely with the patrol division downtown — in the same building with the district court, district attorney’s office and sheriff’s office — and the investigations division and most administration near Bob Billings Parkway and Wakarusa Drive in west Lawrence.
Department leaders have said they are playing catchup on staffing due to attrition and other factors, because it takes months to get new off icers through training to where they can work on the streets on their own. Right now six patrol officers, who were hired in January, are partnered with an experienced officer in the field, and two others are on temporary military leave. The department is also recruiting a new class to hire this summer.
staffed appropriately to get ahead of crime. What we need to do is make a choice as to whether we’re going to start to do some of that stuff,” he said. “Or perhaps take a look at what are some things we should probably stop doing?” Cromwell said the department generally does a good job at responding and focusing on major and violent crimes, but he said with more off icers the department could likely address solving other cases, like nonviolent crimes. “It’s just a matter that at a point here we’re going to have to address some of those equipment needs as well as off icers,” Cromwell said. “One of the things we’re lacking is in the area of property crimes.” City commissioners have a budget and goal-setting study session at 3 p.m. today at city hall. “I’m pleased with what our police department has been able to do with the resources that they have, but I don’t know that that’s sustainable,” Cromwell said. “And I do think that we need to take a real hard look at putting some additional resources into their hands.”
Workload Khatib said in a university community officers are kept busy at all hours, particularly on nights and weekends, for noise complaints and other calls. He said officers helped with 51 special events last year, like traffic control for Kansas University football and basketball games, and they respond to medical calls and traffic accidents on private property, like in parking lots, something that’s not necessarily done in every city. Khatib often talks about crime prevention through community policing by allowing officers to return to the old “ beat cop” approach to interact with residents as a way to exchange information in conversation instead of the duress of a service call. “But we’re not really
hood clinic and previously included Tiller’s clinic. But dozens of other offices and clinics do surgeries under rules imposed by the State Board of Healing Arts, which regulates physicians. The board can suspend or revoke a doctor’s license over unsafe conditions or practices, but abortion opponents have long accused it of being slow to act. In 2005, the board forced a physician to close a Kansas City, Kan., abortion clinic, but two years after complaints surfaced. “We plead guilty to trying to stop access to negligent and just plain bad medicine,” Culp said, arguing that abortion providers aren’t likely to face malpractice lawsuits because women feel ashamed about their unwanted pregnancies. Abortion rights supporters said it’s hypocritical to target abortion without addressing other office surgeries with higher risks of complications. “The only effect is to make the services more expensive and more difficult to obtain, or more difficult to provide,” Brownlie said.

No trade deals without workers’ aid The White House is threatening to hold up final passage of three coveted free trade agreements unless lawmakers agree to expand retraining assistance for American workers who lose their jobs because of foreign competition. The move comes as administration officials begin talks on Capitol Hill to finalize the agreements the White House reached to expand trade with South Korea, Panama and Colombia. President Barack Obama has said the deals are an integral part of his economic agenda, and the pacts have broad Republican support. While administration officials have long said they supported expanding the Trade Adjustment Assistance Program, or TAA, Monday’s announcement was the first time aides said they would be willing to delay the deals without it.

Blast kills 4 U.S. soldiers Four American soldiers serving with NATO forces in Afghanistan died Monday in an explosion in the country’s south, NATO and a defense department official said, bringing home the human cost of the U.S.-led push into Taliban strongholds. The official said they were hit by an improvised explosive device. He spoke on condition of anonymity because relatives of those killed were still being notified. The latest deaths make a total of 16 NATO service members killed so far this month, and 167 so far this year. The latest casualties came as the second-ranking U.S. general in Afghanistan said Monday it was too early to tell if the killing of al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden in neighboring Pakistan will have an impact on the Afghan war effort. 4 | LIBYA
Prosecutor seeks arrest of Gadhafi The International Criminal Court’s chief prosecutor sought arrest warrants Monday for Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi, his son and the country’s intelligence chief for authorizing the killing of civilians in a crackdown on anti-government rebels. Gadhafi’s government denied the allegations. The call for the inquest was the first such action in the Netherlands-based court linked to the Arab uprisings. It opened another potential front against Gadhafi’s regime even as the autocratic leader stands firm against widening NATO airstrikes and rebels with growing international backing.

Next comes a big hole and hopes for a dry summer. Members of the Lawrencebased Bowersock Mills & Power Company off icially broke ground Monday on a $25 million project to build a new hydroelectric power plant on the north bank of the Kansas River. Construction is expected to take the next 20 to 24 months to complete. “This process has been fraught with difficulties and frustration,” said Stephen Hill, an owner of the local power company. “Sleepless nights and endless meetings were the norm for us. The fact that we are gathered here today is something like a miracle.” City and state leaders praised the project Monday afternoon at a ceremonial groundbreaking. Gov.

Expanded protection area stifles hope for wind farm WINFIELD (AP) — Local officials who worked for years to get a wind farm in a southeast Kansas county are angry they weren’t consulted before Gov. Sam Brownback entered into an agreement with wind-energy companies to expand the area of the Flint Hills where new wind turbines are off-limits. Cowley County commissioners had been working with a company, BP Wind Energy, to build a wind farm in the northeast corner of the county. That area now falls within the Tallgrass Heartland, an 11 ,000square-mile chunk of I can’t Kansas now believe the protected from wind governor farm growth, would do the Wichita that.

More than 400,000 acres of tallgrass prairie once covered North America, but only about 4 percent of that is left, most of it in the Flint Hills of Kansas.

Cost of moving utility line could be millions Grass fire sparks barn blaze —————
Supporters want to redirect route to protect lesser prairie chickens T O P E K A ( A P ) — A state agency charged with deciding whether to move a wind energy power line in western Kansas will consider the financial cost and the potential impact on the lesser prairie chickens that breed in the area and the whooping cranes that migrate through it. The Kansas Corporation Commission began hearing testimony on Monday from opponents and supporters of a proposal to move a wind energy power line from a route near Dodge City in order to protect the habitat of about 140 lesser prairie chickens. Supporters of the change, including Westar Energy, Kansas wildlife officials and environmental groups, said the proposed route would disrupt the habitat where the birds breed. An Oklahoma-based utility that hoped to connect to the original route estimates the alternate route could increase the cost by hundreds of millions of dollars. Those costs would be passed on to customers in several states, including Kansas, Missouri and
Chermac President Jaime McAlpine said that new line would increase the company’s cost by $93 million to an estimated $200 million. Oklahoma. Chermac Energy also contends that the new route would interfere with the migration of whooping cranes, a federally endangered species, The Kansas City Star reported. “This case cries out for reasonable consideration of all the issues,” said James Zakoura, an attorney representing Chermac. The original route began in Clark County, west of Pratt and southeast of Dodge City, and went south into Oklahoma to hook into another power line. The new route would shift the line east by about 30 miles, beginning at Medicine Lodge before going south to Oklahoma. The KCC, whose approval is need-
ed for the project to proceed, is expected to make a decision by June 28. Westar Energy, Kansas’ largest utility, is part of partnership building the line. It filed written testimony favoring the revised route. Chermac, which has proposed building 1,170 megawatts of wind capacity in Kansas, would have to build a separate 29-mile line to connect to the new route. Chermac President Jaime McAlpine said that new line would increase the company’s cost by $93 million to an estimated $200 million.

FIREFIGHTERS FROM SEVERAL DOUGLAS COUNTY TOWNSHIPS were called to a fire in a barn in the 1700 section of County Road 1023 near Big Springs, about 7 miles west of Lawrence, about 4:30 p.m. Monday. What started as a grass fire “kind of got away from (those lighting it),” and extended into the barn, said Kanwaka Township Fire Chief Chris Lesser. An estimate of the damage was not available Monday night, but Lesser said there was only hay in the barn. No injuries were reported and crews cleared the scene about 7:30 p.m. Firefighters from Lecompton Fire/EMS and Wakarusa Township Please see LINE, page 5A assisted on the scene, which is just south of U.S. Highway 40.

FIRE CALL Lawrence Douglas-County Fire Medical workers responded to an apartment fire in the 2500 block of West 25th Street around noon Monday. The fire, which was on the first floor of the two-story building, was contained inside a wall, according to Division Chief Lyle Schwartz. Firefighters opened up the wall and extinguished the fire, which never extended to the outside wall. Schwartz said the cause of the fire was still under investigation, but estimated the damLAWRENCE age at around $1,000. The building was evacuated, but Schwartz said there were no injuries and nobody was displaced.

employees? It seems city employees may get some news they won’t like to hear about their health insurance plan. Corliss wants the commission to at least have a discussion about making city employees pay more for their health insurance and increasing their deductibles and out-of-pocket expenses. The commission is expected to consider a proposal that would require city employees to pay $11 every pay period (biweekly) for their health insurance. Now, city employees don’t pay any premiums for their insurance, although they do pay to have a spouse or their family on the city’s plan. But the commission also will consider changing the city’s health insurance system to a high deductible plan that will increase the amount of out-of-pocket expenses employees have to pay. If the city doesn’t make any changes to the health care plan, the city’s health care expenses are expected to rise by about $1.2 million in 2012. ● How long will it take to reach a deal with the city’s
police and fire unions? The city’s police and fire unions have contracts that expire at the end of 2011. It is a good bet that health insurance issue will be discussed as part of the negotiations for a new deal. But in addition to that, the city last year implemented a new overtime policy that cuts back on the amount of overtime the city pays. The city wasn’t able to apply that new policy to police and fire unions because they were under contract. Already, the City Commission has had two lengthy executive sessions to discuss Fire Medical negotiations. Today’s budget study session, which begins at 3 p.m. at City Hall, will be just the first of many discussions this summer. Commissioners will have a better picture of the city’s revenue situation by June, Corliss will present a recommended budget by early July, and commissioners will approve a budget in August.

Post office closings loom over small towns ————
11 Kansas offices may shut down By Amy Bickel The Hutchinson News
H U D S O N — Although its population is small with just 125 people, this Stafford County town boasts the county’s largest private business and a cafe that fills its tables every Sunday. Hudson even has a bank. So, it doesn’t sit well with locals that their post office, which has been open since 1887, could be closing in coming months. “We’re anticipating the worst but hoping for the best,” said Hudson Mayor Pete Witt, who said he wrote a letter urging U.S. Postal Service officials to rethink the proposal. “We’re a little town, and we don’t want to lose anything — especially a post office.” Hudson isn’t the only community, however, on the government’s potential chopping block. Of the state’s 600 post offices, USPS officials are looking at 11 for closure, said Brian Sperry, regional spokesman for the U.S. Postal Service based in Colorado. That includes a post office in the town of Summerfield, in Marshall County, which has as many as 160 residents, and the state’s smallest incorporated city, Freeport, population 5. The reason is a decline in mail volume and increasing competition, Sperry said. Thanks to electronic billing, email, the Internet and texting, mail volume has dropped 20 percent nationwide — or the equivalent of 43 billion pieces of mail. In the past decade, first-class stamped mail has fallen 50 percent. Thus, he said, the USPS is suffering financially. The postal service loses $23 million a day and ended fiscal year 2010 with an $8.5 billion shortfall. Moreover, the USPS is a self-supporting agency and is not financed by taxpayer dollars. “Business as usual is not an option for us,” Sperry said. “In response to those challenges, we’re reviewing our facilities to identify inefficiencies and savings.” In all, the Postal Service is looking at potentially closing 2,000 locations across the United States, he said. Post offices targeted have a declining workload and customer
demand, as well as a vacant postmaster position. “I can tell you the daily retail transactions of many of these locations have fallen into the single digits,” he said. The study does take into account the effect on the community served, impact to employees, economic savings and service alternatives. He said it could be months before communities know their final fate. If a community’s post office closes, residents would receive their mail through a rural carrier and would be able to keep their ZIP code. Sperry didn’t know the exact savings closing Kansas’ 11 post offices would have on the budget, but added the Postal Service was doing everything it could to keep expenses down. “Like any company whose revenue would drop 20 percent, we have to reduce costs to remain in business,” he said. These facts don’t surprise Elaine Fischer, who for 30 years helped run Hudson’s post office and served for several years as a postmaster. There have been three meetings in the past few decades regarding the post office’s fate. One took away Hudson’s rural postal route. Another reduced the office’s hours to half days. The latest meeting came last month with government officials announcing its closure plans. Few attended, she said. “I told them when we had the second meeting that everyone knows when they take your rural route the next is the post office,” Fischer said of the potential closing. “I think (our fate) is cut and dry. If we had a postmaster, I think we could save it, but I think that is really hurting us.” The thought of losing the post office concerns Brenda Grabast, who works at Hudson’s Stafford County Flour Mills Co., one of the county’s largest employers. She said the mill uses the post office daily to ship flour to clients all over the United States, including a large customer base along the East Coast. If the post office closes, the company would have to use UPS, which has higher shipping rates.

A 22-year-old Tonganoxie man has been charged with fleeing and attempting to elude after he allegedly led police on a chase May 9 and then abandoned his pickup. Officials have not found Nicholas Dean Meyer, who last was seen where the chase ended, near 262nd Street and Loring Road, northeast of Lawrence, said police Chief Jeff Brandau. Brandau gave this account: About 2 p.m. May 9, a woman went to Tonganoxie police station and said two armed men had tried to restrain her in Lawrence. The woman and a friend drove to Tonganoxie, and the woman said the two men followed. She told officers the men were outside the police station. A 22-year-old Baldwin City man was questioned by police and released. The Tonganoxie man, however, took off at a high rate of speed.

Fire investigators have determined a May 6 fire at a North Lawrence bar was an accident. Fire marshal James King, a Lawrence Douglas County Fire and Medical division chief, said Monday the fire in a utility closet at the former Gaslight Tavern, 317 N. Second St., was caused by discarded smoking materials. It caused an estimated $50,000 in damages— mostly in smoke damage — to the business. When fire crews arrived about 6 p.m. May 6, the building was unoccupied.
The bar is near the Kansas River bridge that leads to downtown Lawrence, just south of Johnny’s Tavern.

7 Midwestern feedlots get warning from EPA for waste discharge OMAHA, NEB. (AP) — Operators of seven feedlots in Nebraska, Kansas and Iowa have been told to stop violating federal rules on animal waste discharges, the Environmental Protection Agency said Monday. The EPA’s Region 7 office in Kansas City, Kan., said in a statement that four feedlots in Iowa, two in Kansas and one in Nebraska had violated various provisions of the federal Clean Water Act. It said the violations could lead to contamination of nearby bodies of water, including streams, creeks and wetlands. The EPA said it has issued administrative compliance orders to the feedlots, which range in capacity from 800 cattle up to 13,000 cattle. In a phone call, EPA spokesman Chris Whitley said the compliance orders were the first step in a potential series of regulatory actions. If the feedlots fail to comply, civil penalties could follow. Those penalties would vary, Whitley said, depending on the severity of the violations and other factors. The EPA issued the orders to the following four feedlots in Iowa: ● Crossroads Cattle Co. in Woodbine. The EPA said the
feedlot didn’t have enough storage capacity in its waste lagoons and that some cattle were kept in areas that lacked adequate controls to prevent unauthorized waste discharges. Crossroads Cattle Co. did not immediately return a call from The Associated Press. ● Feedlot Services Co., Neola. The EPA said the operation doesn’t have a discharge permit. John Roane, part-owner of Feedlot Services, said Monday that he just got the letter from the EPA. He said his outfit has been working with the Iowa Department of Natural Resources for years to ensure the feedlot followed environmental regulations. “We thought we were in compliance, and we were, until the EPA showed up,” Roane said. He said he’s having an expert look at the EPA letter to see what his company needs to do. ● Harlan Northrup Feedlot, Griswold. The EPA said the operation doesn’t have a discharge permit. The company did not immediately return a phone call from the AP on Monday. ● Petersen-Bubke LLP, Mapleton. The EPA said the operation doesn’t have a discharge permit. There was no
answer at a phone number for feedlot co-owner Norman Petersen. Co-owner Joel Bubke declined to comment on Monday. The EPA said two Kansas feedlots were in violation: ● KM Feeders, in Lyons. The EPA said the feedlot doesn’t have enough storage capacity in its waste lagoons. KM Feeders off icials declined to comment. ● McPherson County Feeders, Marquette. The EPA said the feedlot doesn’t have enough storage capacity in its waste lagoons. Officials at McPherson County Feeders declined to comment. In Nebraska, the EPA said, Knox County Feeders in Bloomfield had failed to follow terms of its discharge permit and couldn’t provide key data. Don Stange, owner of Knox County Feeders, said Monday that his operation’s problem was related to paperwork, and there weren’t any improper waste discharges. “It was just record-keeping more than anything,” Stange said. “We’ll be in compliance in 30 days.“ Stange said he has hired a new firm to maintain his feedlot’s records to make sure his operation will be in compliance.

Bowersock the Bowersock Dam, immediately east of the downtown Kansas River bridges. When completed, the new power plant will be just a bit taller than the bridges and will create a new landmark for motorists entering and leaving downtown. The plant will operate in conjunction with the 1800sera plant that Bowersock owns on the south bank of the Kansas River. The new
plant will produce enough electricity to power about 3,300 homes per year. The Kansas City, Kan., Board of Public Utilities has signed a 25-year agreement to purchase all the power produced at the plant, which will be used to power homes and businesses in Wyandotte County. The construction project will be a unique one for Lawrence since a significant portion of the work will occur in the river.

The lesser prairie chicken, a smaller version of the greater prairie chicken, lives in five states, with between 20,000 and 40,000 estimated to live in western Kansas.

would not impact them. But the agency opposes the original route of the transmission line because it would destroy breeding habitat, which would have a lasting impact. “I don’t think it’s an inconsistent message,” he said. Paul Kerlinger, former director of the New Jersey Audubon Society’s Cape May Bird Observatory, studied both routes for Chermac. He concluded that the route favored by Chermac would disturb the lesser prairie chicken and mitigation efforts such as restoring habitat would be needed. But he said the revised route was worse for more bird species and noted that the route is in the migratory path of the endangered whooping crane.

prosecutor Christina Giffin got into evidence several immigration documents that Kandagaye acknowledged his father signed to bring other family members into the United States, including two grandchildren whom he claimed as his own children. Kandagaye said his father adopted them, but acknowledged they were not identified as such in a question that specifically asked if they were related by adoption. Earlier in the day, prosecutors rested their case after putting on the stand as their last witness the immigration off icial who interviewed Kobagaya during his citizenship application in April 2006. Adjudication officer Jeryl Bean testified that Kobagaya responded no when asked whether he had ever persecuted anyone or ever committed any crimes for which he was not convicted. Kobagaya also denied ever giving false information to immigration officials or lying to them to gain entry into the United States, she testified. Prosecutors used Bean to attack Kobagaya’s claim that he did not purposefully misrepresent to immigration officials that he was not living in Rwanda during the 1994 genocide because he was unfamiliar with the English language and may have misunderstood that question on the immigration paperwork.

Property rights and the potential loss of economic development opportunities are among the biggest issues for them. Three state legislators who live in the county — two Republicans and one Democrat — sent a joint letter of protest to Brownback. Cowley County Commission Chairman Gary Wilson sent two emails to President Barack Obama, but Wilson doesn’t think that will do any good.

Cowley County commissioners said BP Wind Energy needed only to obtain a power purchase agreement with a utility before it could start building. But company off icials said they were already considering pulling out of the project for other reasons, before Brownback announced his plan. “I think there were probably already a few nails in that coffin,” said Karl Pierce, BP’s business development director who oversaw the Cowley County project. He said BP had been trying to get a power-purchase agreement since 2006, but wasn’t close to getting one. Also, two of the larger leases on the 30,000-acre project expired in December and January.
“We were trying to decide what to do about the leases,” Pierce said. “We were in that decision mode, anyway. Then this (expanded restricted area) came up and helped us make our decision.” In addition to Cowley County, officials in Morris, Marion, Elk, Butler and Chautauqua counties also said they weren’t consulted about Brownback’s deal. Nor were the three members of the county’s legislative delegation, who said they heard about the plan after the fact. That prompted Sen. Steve Abrams, R-Arkansas City, and Reps. Kasha Kelley, RArkansas City, and Ed Trimmer, D-Winfield, to send a letter to the governor arguing that excluding county officials “appears to fly in the face of the concept of open and transparent government.”

Head of IMF jailed without bail Other sex assault allegations surface By Jennifer Peltz
Associated Press Writer

DOMINIQUE STRAUSS-KAHN, RIGHT, HEAD OF THE INTERNATIONAL MONETARY FUND, with his attorney Benjamin Brafman, is arraigned Monday in Manhattan Criminal Court for the alleged attack Saturday on a maid who went into his penthouse suite at a hotel near Times Square to clean it, in New York. Strauss-Kahn must remain jailed at least until his next court hearing for attempted rape and other charges, a judge said Monday. and put himself beyond the reach of U.S. law like the filmmaker Roman Polanski. “This battle has just begun,” defense attorney Benjamin Brafman told scores of reporters outside the courthouse, adding that Strauss-Kahn might appeal the bail denial. Strauss-Kahn is accused of attacking a maid who had gone in to clean his penthouse suite Saturday afternoon at a luxury hotel near Times Square. He is charged with attempted rape, sex abuse, a criminal sex act, unlawful imprisonment and forcible touching. The most serious charge carries five to 25 years in prison. Strauss-Kahn, who has
headed the international lending agency since 2007, was in New York on personal business and was paying his own way, so he cannot claim diplomatic immunity, the IMF said. He could seek that protection only if he were conducting official business, spokesman William Murray said. The agency’s executive board met informally Monday for a report on the charges against StraussKahn, its managing director. The French newspaper Le Monde, citing people close to Strauss-Kahn, said he had reserved the $3,000-a-night suite at the Sofitel hotel for one night for a quick trip to have lunch with his daughter, who is studying in New York.
The 32-year-old maid told authorities that she thought the suite was empty but that Strauss-Kahn emerged from the bathroom naked, chased her down a hallway, pulled her into a bedroom and dragged her into a bathroom, police said. He seized her breasts, t r i e d to p u l l d ow n h e r pantyhose, grabbed at her crotch and forced her to perform oral sex on him during the encounter at about noon, according to a court complaint. She ultimately broke free, escaped the room and told hotel staffers what had happened, authorities said. She was treated at a hospital for minor injuries.
Eurozone split over approach to Greek debt By Gabriele Steinhauser and David McHugh Associated Press Writers
BRUSSELS — Top eurozone off icials disagreed over whether to consider changing the debt repayment terms for Greek bonds, a move some experts say is inevitable and others deem too risky for Europe’s broader financial stability. Jean-Claude Juncker, chairman of the group of 17 eurozone finance ministers, said Monday he “wouldn’t exclude” a voluntary delay to repayments on Greek gov-
ernment debt that would give the struggling country more time to fix its economy and regain market trust. But he was immediately contradicted by France’s Finance Minister Christine Lagarde, who ruled the step out, a sign that European officials are still wrestling over what to do about Greece’s debt crisis. Juncker said the group’s adamant stance against restructuring — or giving creditors less than full value of their bond holding — did not extend to what he and others have called “reprofil-
ing,” or a voluntary offer from bondholders to accept repayment over a longer period. However, he warned that Greece wasn’t ready yet to reprofile its debt, which would only come into play after Greece makes more efforts to raise money from privatization and budget cutting. Juncker made his remarks as the group signed off on a 78 billion ($110 billion) package of rescue loans from the EU and the International Monetary Fund and wrestled with what further to do with Greece, which has received a 82 billion bailout but appears
unable to get back on its feet financially without more help. The whole topic of altering the repayment terms of Greek bonds is an explosive one, with officials from the European Central Bank warning a restructuring — making creditors take less than 100 cents on the euro — could spread the debt crisis beyond Greece. Juncker said Monday that all political parties in Greece needed to endorse further austerity and reform measures as well as further privatization of national assets.
WASHINGTON — The nation’s push to computerize medical records has failed to fully address longstanding security gaps that expose patients’ most sensitive information to hackers and snoops, government investigators warn. Two reports released today by the inspector general of the Health and Human Services Department find that the drive to connect hospitals and doctors so they can share patient data electronically is being layered on a system that already has glaring privacy problems. Connecting it up could open new pathways for hackers, investigators say. The market for illicit health care information is booming. In recent years, the case of a former UCLA Medical Center worker who sold details from the files of actress Farah Fawcett, singer Britney Spears and others to the National Enquirer gained notoriety. Most cases don’t involve celebrities or get much attention. Yet fraudsters covet health care records, since they contain identifiers such as names, birth dates and Social Security numbers that can be used to construct a false identity or send Medicare bogus bills. The shortcomings in the system “need to be addressed to ensure a secure environment for health data,” said the main report, adding that the f indings “raise concern” about the effectiveness of security safeguards for personal health care information. President Barack Obama has set a goal for every American to have a secure electronic health record by 2014. Eventually, hospitals and doctors would be able to share instantly patients’ clinical information online. That could prevent life-threatening medical mistakes like giving a patient unconscious in the emergency room a drug to which he’s allergic. It could also save money by cutting duplicative lab tests and scans. Auditors for the inspector general did find that the government agency leading the push for electronic records has put in place some requirements for safely transmitting computerized medical data.
Obama tries to encourage frustrated supporters at campaign fundraiser By Darlene Superville Associated Press Writer
WASHINGTON — Angling for a second term, President Barack Obama tried to fire up supporters Monday night, saying failure to get everything they want as fast as they want should motivate and not dissuade them. Liberals and other key Obama supporters have voiced frustration with the president on a number of issues, from his compromise with Republicans on tax cuts to failure to deliver a promised overhaul of the immigration system. Obama acknowledged the lengthy to-do list ahead, but he said his accomplishments to date show that change is possible. The message to supporters: Don’t give up just yet. “When you think back to these last two and a half years, I want you to do so not with complacency, not with full satisfaction, but I want it to motivate you,” Obama told about 600 supporters at a campaign fundraiser at the Capital Hilton. “Don’t let people tell you that we can’t bring about change. We have already brought about change.” Obama also spoke at a dinner with about 60 high-dollar donors at the St. Regis hotel. Recalling his electionnight speech in Chicago’s Grant Park in 2008, Obama
When you think back to these last two and a half years, I want you to do so not with complacency, not with full satisfaction, but I want it to motivate you.” — President Barack Obama said he told everyone at the time that his winning the presidency wasn’t the end but the beginning. He said he wants to leave behind for future generations an America that is strong and vibrant, yet compassionate and capable of doing big things. “We’re just a quarter of the way through,” Obama said, sounding almost as if he was assured of a second term. “We’ve got to finish our task.” Obama was introduced at the second event by Little Rock Nine member Ernie Green, one of the first black students to attend racially segregated Central High School in Little Rock, Ark., in 1957. Green enthusiastically praised Obama for his leadership on the economy, health care and foreign policy. “I don’t know any American who didn’t stand a little taller on May 1 as you led us through a successful mission,” Green said, referring to the U.S. military raid in Pakistan that ended with the death of Osama bin Laden. Today is the 57th anniversary of the landmark Brown v.
Board of Education ruling in which the Supreme Court found that state laws that created separate schools for blacks and whites were unconstitutional. Three years later, in 1957, President Dwight D. Eisenhower ordered the Army and the Arkansas National Guard to protect Green and eight classmates as they entered Central High. Arkansas Gov. Orval Fabus had refused to comply with the Supreme Court decision. Tickets for both campaign events ranged from $44 to the maximum legal limit of $35,800.
Report reveals vulnerability of electronic records By Ricardo Alonso-Zaldivar
Associated Press Writer
NEW YORK — Haggard and unshaven after a weekend in jail, the chief of the International Monetary Fund was denied release on bail Monday on charges of trying to rape a hotel maid as allegations of other, similar attacks by Dominique Strauss-Kahn began to emerge. In France, a lawyer for a novelist said the writer is likely to file a criminal complaint accusing Strauss-Kahn of sexually assaulting her nine years ago. A French lawmaker accused him of attacking other maids in previous stays at the same luxury hotel. And in New York, prosecutors said they are working to verify reports of at least one other case, which they suggested was overseas. Strauss-Kahn’s weekend arrest rocked the financial world as the IMF grapples with the European debt crisis, and upended French presidential politics. StraussKahn, a member of France’s Socialist party, was widely considered the strongest potential challenger next year to President Nicolas Sarkozy. Making his first appearance on the sex charges, a grim-looking Strauss-Kahn stood slumped before a judge in a dark raincoat and opencollared shirt. The 62-yearold, silver-haired StraussKahn said nothing as a lawyer professed his innocence and strove in vain to get him released on bail. The judge ruled against him after prosecutors warned that the wealthy banker might flee to France

However, that same agency has not issued general security requirements for the computer systems at hospitals and doctors’ offices, systems on which the information would be created, shared and stored. It’s a little like putting a big lock on the front door of the house, but leaving the garage door open. To underscore the point, the second audit examined computer security at seven large hospitals in different states and found 151 security vulnerabilities, from ineffective wireless encryption to a taped-over door lock on a room used for data storage. The auditors classified 4 out of 5 of the weaknesses uncovered as “high impact,” meaning they could result in costly losses, even injury and death. The government is offering rewards and penalties to encourage hospitals and doctors’ offices to adopt electronic medical records. Incentive payments could total as much as $27 billion over 10 years. Providers who insist on clinging to paper records will eventually face cuts in Medicare payments.

Giffords watches husband’s liftoff Obama to Memphis students: ‘You inspire me’ for next-to-last shuttle flight By Jim Kuhnhenn
SPACE SHUTTLE ENDEAVOUR FLIES past the U.S. and mission flags after launch at Cape Canaveral, Fla., on Monday.
By Marcia Dunn and Seth Borenstein Associated Press Writers
CAPE CANAVERAL , F LA . — A space shuttle took flight for the next-to-last time Monday as Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, still recovering from a gunshot wound and hidden from public view, watched her astronaut husband rocket through the clouds in a deafening roar. Giffords and the other crew families were described as awe-struck and silent on the rooftop of the launch control center. “Good stuff, good stuff,” she said from her wheelchair when Giffords it was quiet again, according to a congressional aide. Giffords joined the other five astronauts’ wives and children on top of the Kennedy Space Center building to watch Endeavour’s last voyage as NASA winds down the 30-year-old shuttle program. After liftoff, there were hugs all around, the aide said. Endeavour disappeared so quickly into the clouds that the launch manager apologized later to the hundreds of thousands who jammed nearby roads and towns. Giffords’ husband, Mark Kelly, is Endeavour’s commander and his twin astronaut brother, Scott, gave red tulips to Giffords once he safely reached orbit. Kelly carried her wedding ring into space, which he has done in the past. This time, she wanted something back: his ring to stay on Earth. She had it around her neck on a silver chain from a funky Arizona jewelry store that included a heart and an Arizona map.
Giffords has diff iculty speaking, but Carusone said Giffords’ comment after the launch was one of the congresswoman’s oft-used expressions. That Giffords would watch the shuttle launch seemed improbable a little more than four months ago. The wouldbe assassin shot her in the head, critically wounding her, killing six people and injuring 12 others at a political event in her hometown of Tucson, Ariz. The bullet pierced the left side of Giffords’ brain, affecting speech and movement on her right side. Her doctors have said she has made remarkable progress in what will be a long recovery. Monday’s 8:56 a.m. liftoff generated the kind of excitement seldom seen on Florida’s Space Coast on such a grand scale — despite a delay of more than two weeks from the original launch date because of an electrical problem.

MEMPHIS, TENN. — Offering a lift to a flood beleaguered city, President Barack Obama hailed the transformation of a once struggling but venerable Memphis high school Monday, telling its graduates, “You inspire me, that’s why I’m here.” With the Mississippi River still lapping near the top of the city’s protective levees, Obama also used the trip to meet privately with families, emergency personnel and volunteers confronting the highest floodwaters in generations. For the president, the trip was a chance to promote his education agenda while also attending to the latest natural disaster — the snow melt and rain that has sent a torrent of water down the Mississippi, topping earthworks and forcing flooding along its path.

You’ve always been underdogs. Nobody’s handed you a thing. But that also means that whatever you accomplish in your life, you’ll have earned it.”
— President Barack Obama in his commencement address to Booker T. Washington High School students from a high school in a poor, crime-ridden neighborhood where graduation rates have risen impressively in just three years. “You’ve always been underdogs,” the president told the cheering Booker T. Washington High School graduates, arrayed in bright green and yellow mortar boards and gowns. “Nobody’s handed you a thing. But that also means that whatever you accomplish in your life, you’ll have earned it.“
Inside the convention center, his commencement audience extended well beyond the 150 graduating students and their families, attracting some of the city’s and Tennessee’s top political leadership. Borrowing the refrain from his own 2008 presidential campaign, Obama said: “Well, we are here today because every single one of you stood up and said, ’Yes we can.’ Yes we can learn. Yes we can succeed.” The school won a national competition to secure a graduation address from the president by illustrating how it overcame a history of disciplinary problems and high dropout rates and graduated 82 percent of its students, turning into a sanctuary for troubled kids. Innovative changes included separate freshmen academies for boys and girls and a greater choice not only of advanced placement classes, but vocational studies as well.
Florida imam will fight terror charges their arrests on charges of conspiracy and providing material support to terrorists. They are among six people who allegedly worked to funnel at least $50,000 to the Pakistani Taliban, which violently opposes Pakistan’s government and the U.S., prosecutors said. Hafiz Khan, with a long, white beard and thick, blackframed glasses, appeared frail as he slowly trudged in handcuffs and chains to the court podium. Khan suffers from a heart condition and other ailments, and will not do well in strict solitary conf inement at a downtown Miami detention center, his attorney said. He also speaks very little English, mainly Urdu and Pashto. “We’re very concerned about his health,” Wahid said.
The younger Khan, also an imam at a mosque in suburban Margate, was given a week to hire a lawyer after a judge decided he didn’t qualify for a public defender. A hearing was set for May 23 on whether either man will be released on bail. The U.S. wants them kept in custody until trial because they are a danger to the community and a flight risk, prosecutor John Shipley said. Another son, 37-year-old Irfan Khan, was arrested in Los Angeles and was scheduled to appear in court there later Monday. He will eventually be transferred to Miami to stand trial. The three other people indicted in the case, including two other Khan relatives, are believed to be in Pakistan.

U.S. government hits debt ceiling; lawmakers given 11-week deadline By Kevin G. Hall McClatchy Newspapers
W A S H I N G T O N — Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner informed Congress on Monday that the United States has reached its legal debt limit, setting off a ticking time bomb that could explode in less than three months if lawmakers can’t bridge differences and allow more government borrowing. In hitting the $14.3 trillion debt ceiling — the limit on how much the government can borrow — the Obama administration on Monday began temporarily halting payments to the retirement and federal pension accounts of federal workers and started borrowing from those funds, to be restored later. Geithner sent a letter to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., warning that the government can move money around for about 11 weeks but if a new debt ceiling isn’t agreed to by Aug. 2, the U.S. government could effectively default on its obligations to its creditors. He warned of “catastrophic economic consequences for citizens” unless Congress raises the debt ceiling. An increase of about $2 trillion is expected, enough to get the issue past the 2012 elections before Congress would have to lift it again. Republicans who control the House of Representatives
vow to link raising the debt ceiling to cuts in government spending of at least equal measure. In a combative statement Monday, House Speaker John Boehner, ROhio, upped the ante. “As I have said numerous times, there will be no debt limit increase without serious budget reforms and significant spending cuts, cuts that are greater than any increase in the debt limit.” Boehner has called previously for $2 trillion in spending cuts as part of any deal to raise the debt ceiling. Wisconsin Republican U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan, the chairman of the House Budget Committee, repeated the linkage in a speech Monday in Obama’s adopted hometown. “For every dollar the president wants to raise the debt ceiling, we can show him plenty of ways to cut far more than a dollar of spending,” Ryan told the Economic Club of Chicago. “Given the magnitude of our debt burden, the size of the spending cuts should exceed the size of the president’s debt limit increase.” Republicans rule out tax increases and any significant cuts in defense spending. The United States continues to f ight wars in Iraq and Afghanistan paid for with borrowing, the only time in U.S. history that wars weren’t offset at least partially with some sort of tax.

If Congress fails to raise the debt ceiling by Aug. 2, it would force the Obama administration to choose between paying creditors or paying for military operations, Social Security and Medicare payments, and other commitments. A government default on debts surely would trigger a harsh reaction from investors and could panic global financial markets, jeopardizing the U.S. and global economies. It would mean that the world’s largest economy was governing its finances as if it were a basket-case economy such as Greece.

Former White House chief of staff sworn in as new mayor
Utah facility to destroy last of mustard gas SALT LAKE CITY — A U.S. Army facility in Utah that once stored more chemical weapons than any other site in the country on Monday began destroying what’s left of its stockpile by incinerating the last container of liquid mustard agent. The Army’s Deseret Chemical Depot at one time stored 43 percent of the country’s chemical weapons. Since 2006, it has destroyed 12.3 million pounds of mustard agent, a chemical weapon first used by Germany during World War I to disable opposing armies by causing severe, painful but nonfatal blistering. The gas also can cause cancer, and even low levels of exposure can threaten workers and the public. The Army said all of its disposal techniques are safe. Lesser amounts of mustard gas remain at Army facilities in Alabama, Colorado, Kentucky and Oregon, where incineration of 1,000, one-ton containers of mustard agent at the Umatilla Chemical Depot is under way.
Jerry Lewis to retire from MDA telethon LAS VEGAS — After 45 years promoting treatment and a cure for children he calls “my kids,” comedian Jerry Lewis announced Monday he is retiring as host of the Labor Day Muscular Dystrophy Lewis Association telethon that has become synonymous with his name. Lewis, 85, issued a statement through the association calling it “time for an all new Telethon era.” “As a labor of love, I’ve hosted the annual Telethon since 1966 and I’ll be making my final appearance on the show this year by performing my signature song, ‘You’ll Never Walk Alone,’“ Lewis said of a shortened six-hour primetime broadcast scheduled for Sept. 4. Lewis, a Las Vegas resident, has in recent years battled a debilitating back condition, heart issues and the crippling lung disease pulmonary fibrosis. He said he’ll continue serving as national Muscular Dystrophy Association chairman, as he’s done since the early 1950s.

AN ISRAELI SOLDIER COVERED IN A PRAYER SHAWL PRAYS as Israeli troops gather near the border fence between Israel and Syria near the village of Majdal Shams in the Golan Heights on Monday. Mobilized by calls on Facebook, thousands of Arab protesters marched on Israel’s borders with Syria, Lebanon and Gaza on Sunday in an unprecedented wave of demonstrations, sparking clashes that left people dead in an annual Palestinian mourning ritual marking the anniversary of Israel’s birth.

RAMALLAH , W EST BANK Palestinian activists are calling it a preview of new tactics to pressure Israel and win world support for statehood: Masses of marchers, galvanized by the Arab Spring and brought together by Facebook, descending on borders and military posts — and daring Israeli soldiers to shoot. It could prove more problematic for Israel than the suicide bombings and other deadly violence of the past, which the current Palestinian Authority leadership feels only tainted their cause. After attempted border breaches from Syria, Lebanon, Jordan and Gaza left 15 Palestinians dead Sunday, Israeli officials openly puzzled over how to handle an unfamiliar new phase. “The Palestinians’ transition from terrorism and suicide bombings to deliberately unarmed mass demonstrations is a transition that will present us with difficult challenges,” said Defense MinisEhud Barak. Fox cancels ‘America’s terSunday’s protests were Most Wanted’ driven by renewed hopes that Palestinian statehood — at NEW YORK— You didn’t have least as an internationally to watch “America’s Most Wantapproved idea within specifed” to be grateful it’s there.

— Hanan Ashrawi, a former Palestinian negotiator among Palestinians, who had been dejected after two failed uprisings against Israeli rule and fruitless peace talks over the past 20 years. Meanwhile, the Facebook generation is increasingly taking a lead in the Palestinian arena, at times sidelining political veterans stuck to more traditional ways. “There is a new energy, a new dynamism,” said Hanan Ashrawi, a former Palestinian negotiator. “The Palestinians feel they have put themselves on the map again.” Sunday’s marches occurred on the day Palestinians mourn Israel’s 1948 creation, when hundreds of thousands of their people were uprooted and scattered throughout the region. Marking the anniversary, called the “nakba,” Arabic for “catastrophe,” Palestinian organizers bused hundreds to Lebanon’s border with Israel and to the Syrian frontier in the Israeli-held Golan Heights. Surprised and overwhelmed, Israeli troops fired to keep the crowds from breaching the borders. Four Palestinians were killed in the Golan and 10 in Lebanon, while a 15th was fatally shot as dozens rushed Israel’s border wall with the Gaza Strip. It’s unclear whether future calls for more mass marches will produce a similar turnout since Sunday’s casualties underscored the heavy risks. However, Palestinian activists in recent months have spoken of employing such tactics throughout the West Bank, the core of a hoped-for future Palestinian state. Some in Israel suspected
that allies of arch-foe Iran, including the Lebanese Hezbollah militia, had a hand in the border breaches or that Syria helped instigate them to divert attention from its brutal crackdown on domestic unrest. In Lebanon’s border area, Hezbollah activists with walkie-talkies directed buses and handed out Palestinian flags. However, the Palestinians say it was purely their initiative, launched on Facebook several months ago, with heavy involvement by expatriates. “No one expected it to work, and it did work,” said Hazem Abu Hilal, a Palestinian organizer. Palestinian officials quickly embraced the campaign as a boost for their threepronged strategy — seeking U.N. recognition, building a state from the ground up and fostering nonviolent protests. Abbas declared a three-day mourning period for Sunday’s dead, and flags were lowered to half-staff. “You assert to everyone that ... peoples’ wills are stronger than their oppressors,” he said in a televised speech, addressing the protesters. Nabil Shaath, a Palestinian negotiator, said he believes Sunday’s marches were just a hint of what’s to come. “These people are motivated now by the revolutions that succeeded in the Arab world, and I don’t think anybody can stop them,” said Shaath, speaking from Slovenia, where he was trying to add one more country to the list of dozens who have already recognized a Palestinian state in principle.
Israel’s Netanyahu takes aim at Hamas
Customer satisfaction with AT&T, T-Mobile falls NEW YORK — Sprint Nextel Corp., once dead last in customer satisfaction among the Big 4 national wireless carriers, now has the happiest subscribers, along with long-time leader Verizon Wireless, according to a survey released Tuesday. The American Customer Satisfaction Index also shows tentative declines in customer satisfaction at the other two big carriers, AT&T Inc. and T-Mobile USA. That comes as AT&T has agreed to buy T-Mobile USA for $39 billion in a deal that could close next year. The acquisition could make AT&T and T-Mobile customers even less happy. Claes Fornell, professor of Business Administration at the University of Michigan and the designer of the ACSI survey, said it is common to find that customer satisfaction drops after a merger.

JERUSALEM — Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Monday took a tough line toward an emerging Palestinian government ahead of a high-profile trip to Washington, saying “those that want to destroy us are not partners in peace.” Netanyahu reiterated a willingness to agree to a Palestinian state under certain conditions but made clear he did not believe it was possible if the Islamic militant group Hamas, which is set to join a Palestinian unity government with the Western-leaning Fatah movement, does not recognize Israel. “I want to make peace with a Palestinian state that wants to end the conflict. I am not willing to accept a Palestinian state that wants to continue it,” he said in comments that came a day after a series of deadly clashes with Palestini-
ans demanding that refugees from the time of Israel’s creation in 1948 and their descendants be allowed to return to their lost homes. Netanyahu questioned the Palestinian commitment to peace after Sunday’s confrontations along Israel’s borders with Syria, Lebanon and Gaza. He also noted Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh’s calls for the end of the “Zionist enterprise.” “A Palestinian government, of which half declares daily that it is intent on annihilating Israel, is not a partner for peace,” Netanyahu told his parliament Monday. Hamas, a violent Iranianbacked group, is considered a terrorist organization by the U.S, EU and others because it has killed hundreds of Israelis in suicide bombings and other attacks. Hamas’ official charter calls for the destruction of Israel. Fatah and Hamas agreed last week to form a unity gov-
ernment to end a four-year rift that has left them with rival governments: a Hamas regime in Gaza and a Fatahdominated administration in the West Bank. The Palestinians, who hope to establish a state in the two territories, say the new government will fill a caretaker role until new elections can be held next year. Aides to Netanyahu described Monday’s speech as a taste of the message Netanyahu will deliver at the White House on Friday. President Barack Obama is expected to deliver a Mideast policy speech Thursday, a day before his meeting with Netanyahu. In his speech Monday, Netanyahu reiterated a longstanding list of demands from the Palestinians. Among them: recognition of Israel as the Jewish homeland, retaining major Jewish settlements in the West Bank and keeping all of Jerusalem under Israel control.
CHICAGO — Former White House chief of staff Rahm Emanuel was sworn in Monday as Chicago’s first new mayor in two decades, a historic power shift for a city where the retiring Richard M. Daley was the only leader a whole generation had ever known. Emanuel took the oath of office at the popular downtown Millennium Park, one of the signature accomplishments in Daley’s efforts to transform the city. Emanuel planned later to head over to City Hall and, for the first time since he was elected in February, walk into the fifthfloor office that was Daley’s lair for 22 years. “We must face the truth,” Emanuel said in his inaugural speech. “It is time to take on the challenges that threaten the very future of our city: the quality of our schools, the safety of our streets, the cost and effectiveness of city gov-
ernment, and the urgent need to create the jobs of the future right here in Chicago.” “The decisions we make in the next two or three years will determine what Chicago will look like in the next 20 or 30.” Emanuel inherits a city with big financial problems. His transition team predicted a $700 million budget shortfall next year, but because of some controversial decisions by Daley — most notably the push to privatize parking meters — he has limited ways to pay for school improvements or repair the city’s aging infrastructure. In his speech, Emanuel thanked Daley for his service to the city, noting how the “world class” park where he was speaking had once been an abandoned rail yard and “nagging urban eyesore.” When Daley took office in 1989, “he challenged all of us to lower our voices and raise our sights. Chicago is a different city today than the one Mayor Daley inherited, thanks to all he did,” Emanuel said.
Vatican orders bishops to set up guidelines against child sex abuse LOS ANGELES (MCT) — After months of anticipation, the Vatican issued a letter Monday that gives Roman Catholic bishops worldwide a year to come up with national guidelines on how to deal with the problem of child sexual abuse by priests. The letter was the latest indication that Pope Benedict XVI has recognized sexual abuse as a global scourge, not an American aberration. Although the Vatican document was immediately castigated by church critics as toothless and vague, it was welcomed by others as a harbinger of progress. “I think it’s a step forward,” said Nicholas Cafardi, dean emeritus of the Duquesne Law School in Pittsburgh and former chairman of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops’ panel on child protection. “It’s good to see the church requiring every bishops conference in the world to deal with what we now know is a worldwide problem.” The letter, issued by Cardinal William J. Levada, the chief
doctrinal officer of the Vatican, is not expected to have any effect on the Catholic Church in the United States because U.S. bishops adopted their own rules in 2002 for dealing with sexual abuse cases. Those “zero-tolerance” norms called for notifying civil authorities of abuse cases, removing abusive priests from ministry (but not necessarily the priesthood) and creating programs to safeguard young people and educate them about sexual predators. Father Federico Lombardi, the chief Vatican spokesman, said in a telephone interview that the Vatican letter was intended to establish “a certain homogeneity, a certain coherence” in the way the church deals with sexual abuse worldwide, while recognizing that bishops face very different political and legal climates in different parts of the world. Levada gave the bishops until May 2012 to respond and may reject some guidelines if he believes they are inadequate, Lombardi said.

Painful chapter Westar Energy now is being forced to negotiate huge compensation packages for the former leaders that drove the company into financial ruin.
e share Westar’s pain. Westar Energy has repeatedly said that none of its financial dealings with former CEO David Wittig and his cronies will impact the company’s utility customers. Nonetheless, we can only imagine the company’s pain at having to pay huge salary benefits and legal fees to the men who escaped conviction on charges related to looting millions of dollars from the state’s largest utility. On Friday, it was announced that Westar had reached a settlement to pay former top strategy officer Douglas Lake $21 million in unpaid compensation and $5.3 million for attorney fees. The company still is in arbitration concerning a similar payment to Wittig. What a bitter end to this Westar chapter. Lake and Wittig were forced out of their jobs in 2002 and indicted by a federal grand jury in 2003 for conspiring to inflate their compensation at Westar, along with wire fraud and money laundering. The first trial ended in a hung jury and their convictions in a second trial were thrown out by the U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, which said prosecutors didn’t adequately prove the charges. The two were awaiting a third trial when federal prosecutors decided last August to drop the case. So, despite the fact that Westar stock plummeted from about $44 per share to less that $9 per share and its debt grew to more than $3 billion under the leadership of Wittig and Lake, it’s now come down to how much Westar owes Wittig and Lake rather than the other way around. During the trial, prosecutors showed that while Westar was laying off hundreds of employees, Wittig spent more than $6.5 million to renovate the company’s executive suites, including $29,000 for a custombuilt television wall unit. At the same time, Wittig was spending millions of dollars to renovate his own home grand style. The news of Lake’s settlement came to light Friday when the Kansas Corporation Commission sent out a news release promising that Westar customers wouldn’t pay any of the compensation or legal expenses called for in Lake’s settlement. That amount will be paid entirely by Westar shareholders, according to the KCC. Westar officials have continued to assure their customers of that fact throughout the Wittig scandal. It’s difficult to imagine how the damage done to Westar won’t trickle down in some way to its customers, but those of us paying our monthly bills have little choice but to take state regulators and company officials at their word. Even if it doesn’t affect our personal pocketbooks, this case certainly leaves a sour taste in all of our mouths. The idea of the former Westar executives now claiming tens of millions of dollars in restitution is the ultimate insult.
What will change game in Afghanistan? Will the killing of Osama bin Laden really be “a game-changer” in the Afghan war? Defense Secretary Robert Gates said it may be. And this is the big question I’ll be exploring on a trip to Afghanistan and Pakistan, starting this week. Will bin Laden’s demise speed the U.S. troop exit? My gut tells me it will make a difference, but not as big as Congress and a warweary public would like. The state of play in Afghanistan was already shifting before the Navy SEALs found bin Laden. President Obama had announced he would start withdrawing U.S. soldiers in July (after temporarily surging troop levels last year), with a goal of removing combat forces by 2014. And Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton made a landmark speech in February stating that the United States is now actively seeking a political solution to the conflict. She said that, in 2011, “we are launching a diplomatic surge to move this conflict toward a political outcome.” She also indicated the White House is now feeling out whether senior Taliban leaders are willing to enter a negotiating process. Even before bin Laden’s death, the 2011 and 2014 target dates had focused the attention of countries in the area on the need to prepare for a U.S. drawdown. All of Afghanistan’s neighbors, including Iran, China, Russia, India, and especially Pakistan, had begun jockeying for position and influence in Kabul. Transition had become a nervous-making buzzword in Kabul, as Afghan leaders sought commitments from Washington to continue aid and training after most troops leave. Yet I was a doubter on the tim-

Pakistan will have to recognize that the biggest threat to its survival is not India, but its foolhardy support of radical Islamists.” ing of a peace process. There was no sign yet that top Taliban leaders were willing to give up their ideology and accept less than full power in Kabul. President Hamid Karzai’s efforts to reach out to Taliban leaders didn’t appear fruitful. Nor was it clear who could speak for their several factions: A Taliban impostor made it all the way to a meeting with Karzai. And the U.S. military, under Gen. David Petraeus, was holding out for the most minimal drawdown in July in hopes of further degrading the Taliban’s leadership, mostly by drones and the work of Special Forces. The time for peace talks didn’t seem ripe. Meantime, Pakistani leaders had made clear they wanted to dominate any peace process, and to ensure that their proteges, the Afghan Taliban, got a lion’s share of power. When Pakistani Prime Minister Yusuf Gilani recently visited Karzai, he demanded that the Afghan leader ensure that India be cut out of any role in Afghanistan’s future.
The whole notion of a peace process seemed rooted in dreamland. Then came the raid on Abbottabad. And now suddenly everything is in motion. In rapid motion. The drama will be in full play in the coming weeks. So I am arriving in the region at a fascinating moment. After bin Laden’s death, Taliban leaders based in Pakistan have to feel more vulnerable. Obama has made clear the United States will go after Islamists there who threaten us — even if Pakistan won’t. Pakistan’s military — despite its defensive bluster over the Navy SEAL raid — may even have to reconsider whether its pro-Taliban, anti-India policy really advances its security interests. (This would be the real game changer, though I know chances are slim.) And India’s prime minister, very shrewdly, has used this moment to suggest that bin Laden’s death can be an opportunity to finally bury regional rivalries and work for peace. Last week, on his f irst visit to Afghanistan in six years, Manmohan Singh tried to assuage paranoid Pakistani fears that India wants to use Afghanistan as a base from which to work to dismember Pakistan. He stressed, pointedly, that India’s interest in Afghanistan lay with stability and development, not anti-Pakistani machinations. Will Pakistan respond by loosening its hold on and support for the Afghan Taliban? Is the Taliban now willing to enter a serious peace process? Or, even after bin Laden’s death, is the Taliban ready to wait out the Americans? Does it still expect that a U.S. exit will permit it to take over, as the population
rejects greedy local leaders imposed by a corrupt Karzai government in Kabul? I will be asking Afghans, Pakistanis — and U.S. civilian and military officials — about their expectations for the transition and for possible peace talks. I will travel to Kandahar, Afghanistan, the birthplace of the Taliban and its leader Mullah Omar, to see whether the U.S. troop surge there has made Afghans any more secure. And if the Taliban has been cleared out, are the Afghans capable of holding the turf when U.S. troops leave? I will talk to Afghan opposition leaders, and leaders of civil society, including women, about whether they want the return of the Taliban in any form. If a majority of the population opposes such an outcome, it will lead to renewed civil war and chaos — a climate in which radical Islamists can flourish. And such chaos on Pakistan’s border will strengthen the Pakistani Taliban forces, who seek to take control of their nuclear-armed state. The sad truth is, in order for bin Laden’s death to resonate, a lot of actors in the Afghan conflict will have to choose reason over emotion. Pakistan will have to recognize that the biggest threat to its survival is not India, but its foolhardy support of radical Islamists. Karzai will have to recognize his regime’s corruption plays into the hands of the Taliban. And the Taliban will have to recognize it can’t again rule Kabul. So is bin Laden’s death a “game-changer”? No one knows yet, but I will be asking everyone I meet that question and writing what I find along the way. — Trudy Rubin is a columnist and editorial board member for the Philadelphia Inquirer.

It is not what it should be but it is along the right lines. The next legislature will strengthen it. Workmen’s compensation is so new that it is hard to get in shape at the first trial.

To the editor: Congressman Paul Ryan’s plan to replace Medicare with medical vouchers will hurt today’s seniors who remain on Medicare, not just those under 55 who will be forced to accept the vouchers. As the number of seniors on Medicare would shrink, doctors and hospitals would feel less pressure to accept Medicare’s discounted payments. Seniors like me would find it increasingly difficult to find a doctor or hospital that accepts Medicare. Ryan’s plan puts all the burden on seniors when there are fairer ways to ensure its continued success. Joyce Jackson, Lawrence
AmeriCorps aid To the editor: Earlier this year, Congress voted to cut $22.5 million from AmeriCorps, our nation’s service program. As a result, more than 2,000 men and women committed to serving our country will be laid off, and local organizations will no longer benefit from these young, energetic and inexpensive employees. For example, I work as part of a
team of six AmeriCorps members at Heartland Community Health Center (HCHC) in Lawrence. Together, we provide a support system for both the patients and staff of HCHC. The clinic’s diabetes care and prevention, wellness and women’s health programs provide free education and support to patients wanting to improve their health through meaningful lifestyle changes. All three programs are run entirely by AmeriCorps members and would no longer be available to the community should these positions be cut. Besides HCHC, AmeriCorps members also serve at Centro Hispano, Boys & Girls Club and the United Way’s Roger Hill Volunteer Center in Lawrence. AmeriCorps members serve in our schools, parks and wildlife refuges as well as local nonprofit and charity organizations. This week is National AmeriCorps Week. Our representatives in Congress need to know how important this program is to Lawrence. Together, we can keep AmeriCorps alive in our community and country, and can continue to transform peoples’ lives through the work AmeriCorps members do. Ali Edwards, Lawrence
Spending choices To the editor: Recent cuts in funding of the Kansas Arts Commission and Planned Parenthood have led to some very impassioned but misguided letters of recent. By eliminating the Arts Commission we would be led to believe that there will no longer be art in Kansas. By eliminating funding to Planned Parenthood we would be led to believe that women will no longer get health care in Kansas. Supporters of these organizations need to find another way to fund them. The government can no longer bilk the taxpayer for these programs and support basic safety like firefighters and law enforcement at the same time. Folks, let’s talk common sense for a moment. The taxpayers of this state and country cannot continue to pay for every feel-good program in existence. We have spent like a drunken sailor, both parties guilty, to the point of insolvency. Some will scream, “Tax the rich fat cats!” We could confiscate every thing they own and not have enough to balance our state and federal budgets. We could just tax them until it really hurts, you say? They pick up and leave the state or country and then you have no tax base. There are hard choices to be
made if we are to move forward as a nation. Stopping unnecessary spending, by making hard choices that we as citizens make in our homes, around our dining table, every day, is just a first step. Scott Burkhart, Lawrence

Wheat condition continues to decline WICHITA (AP) — Kansas Agricultural Statistics Service says it hasn’t seen a winter wheat crop this bad in the state since June 1996. The agency reported Monday that 55 percent of the wheat is in poor to very poor condition. About 30 percent is in fair condition with only 14 percent rated as good and 1 percent excellent. Lack of moisture is the big problem. The report says last week’s rain in parts of Kansas was too scant to reverse the slow decline of the crop. About 64 percent of the wheat has now headed. Meanwhile, spring planting is well under way. About 84 percent of the corn and 30 percent of the planned soybean crop have been seeded, as have 9 percent of the sorghum and 10 percent of the cotton crop.

True Widow’s sophomore record was reviewed by Pitchfork, earning a respectable 7.4. The band’s songs all lurch forward at a similar methodic pace, but as the Pitchfork review notes, they are certainly in control of their sound and capable of introducing different moods, despite staying within a relatively confined soundscape.

6A REGIONAL GOLF
Johnson critical for LHS They have a couple of legitimate pitching arms, three or four hitters capable of launching any pitch out of the yard and a handful of guys who, through osmosis, gained the experience of winning it all by hanging out in the dugout in 2009, when Lawrence High won the Class 6A state title. But the main reason the LHS baseball team will be a contender this postseason is because of their most unassuming player. His name is Ross Johnson. He’s the Lions’ senior leadoff hitter and center fielder. He’s the most experienced player on the field and the most accomplished off it. Johnson A 4.0 student with as many academic awards as athletic, Johnson brings a bevy of things with him to the ballpark every night. The most notable is his unflappable attitude. “He clears his head pretty well out here and just plays his game,” senior teammate Aaron Gile said. “He shows us what we’re supposed to do and how it’s supposed to be done. He’ll be one of the guys they bring back to give a speech or something.” Definitely. But don’t expect to hear many of those while he’s still playing. Running his mouth is just not Johnson’s style. Wednesday, Johnson will lead the Lions into regional play in Manhattan, where they will face Washburn Rural at 2 p.m. Two victories — the title game is at 7 p.m. — would put LHS in the state tournament next week. A loss will end the dream shared by seven LHS seniors — Johnson, Gile, Jake Johnson, Jon Pederson, Alex Laughlin, Trent Sheppard and Corbin Francisco — many of whom were there to witness the elation in 2009. The stakes are high. These guys have been talking about this opportunity since watching those who came before them hoist the trophy in 2009. Ross Johnson, a junior varsity player that season, wasn’t in uniform that day. But he was in the dogpile. Being left off the postseason roster didn’t stop him from joining the fun. One morning, he called LHS coach Brad Stoll and asked to join the team breakfast. The next day, he asked to ride in the van. The Lions kept winning. So Stoll made it mandatory that Johnson be there. “We gave him some kind of job to do,” Stoll said. “We had to. He was our good-luck charm.” Today, Johnson represents more than that. He’s a big part of Lawrence’s chances, which is good news for the Lions because he’s the kind of player who will do anything for his team. Nothing is beneath him. He’ll work an at-bat for a walk or smile as he’s plunked in the back by a pitch. At the same time, you can’t ask too much of him. He’s as good as it gets on the basepaths and routinely delivers diving grabs or clutch base hits. “The great thing about Ross is, he does it when you need it most,” Stoll said. That time is now, though you’d never know it from talking to him. Johnson doesn’t show pressure, and he rarely feels it. “I know all these guys want it, too,” said Johnson of his teammates. “You can’t put too much pressure on yourself or you won’t be able to do anything. We’re just trying to have fun with it.”

FREE STATE’S ALEX GREEN CHIPS OUT OF THE ROUGH on the first hole at the regional golf tournament. Green, along with one other Firebird and three Lawrence Lions, qualified for the state tournament from their rounds on Monday at the St. Andrews Golf Club in Overland Park.
Three Lions, two Firebirds qualify as individuals By Ben Ward Journal-World Sports Writer
OVERLAND PARK — After a practice round Friday at St. Andrews Golf Club, members of Lawrence High’s boys golf team returned to the bus, where they shared a few thoughts on their first look at the course with coach Dirk Wedd. “They told me, ‘Coach, we can score well here,’” Wedd said. The Lions did Wedd proud Monday afternoon at the regional golf tournament, qualifying three individuals for the Class 6A state tournament despite missing the cut as a team by a mere three strokes. Bolstered by Logan Henrichs’ 78, Brett Van Blaricum’s 80 and Jesse Ohtake’s 86, LHS finished fourth as a team at 335, just behind Olathe South’s 332. The top three teams qualify for state, scheduled for May 23 in Wichita. “It was fun to watch these kids grow up over the course of this sea-
some, we had a shot, and that’s all you can ask for.” Free State was also close to making state, finishing one stroke behind LHS at 336. Olathe East (305) and Olathe Northwest (328) were the other teams to qualify after finishing first and second. Alex Green (78) and Wilson Hack (80) both qualified individually for the state tournament for the Firebirds. Colin Becker fell just shy after firing an 87. “It’s hard to see some of us barely miss the cut and barely miss it as a team,” Green said. “But Wilson and I are going, and that should be Kevin Anderson/Journal-World Photo fun.” LAWRENCE HIGH’S JESSE OHTAKE Ohtake, a freshman from Japan, WATCHES HIS DRIVE on the 16th tee. drew the loudest cheers from Lions The freshman qualified for state as an and Firebirds alike after finding out individual with an 86. his 86 was good enough to make it.

Kansas University basketball players Jeff Withey and Jordan Juenemann will play for Athletes in Action during a two-week trip to Europe from May 19 through June 3. During that time, Athletes in Action will face local European teams, including clubs from Greece, Hungary, Poland and also the Kosovo national team. Athletes in Action is a global ministry that uses sports to help people deal with questions of faith. “This will be my first time overseas,” said Juenemann, a 6-foot-3 senior-to-be from Hays. “It will be great to experience that and get to know guys from other Juenemann teams. I think it will be really enjoyable.” Juenemann wanted to travel with Athletes in Action the last few summers, but plans had never worked out. He called the director of Athletes in Action to tell him he was interested this year, and a week later, Juenemann was informed that he made the team. Because the team needed post players, Juenemann then started to recruit his roommate, Withey, a 7-foot junior to be from San Diego. At first, Withey declined. “I haven’t been home for a year, so I wanted to go back home,” Withey said. “Coach (Kurtis) Townsend and coach (Bill) Self heard about it, and they told me it Withey would be a good opportunity for me because I haven’t played a real basketball game in such a long time and it would also help me with my Christian faith.” It won’t be Withey’s first time in Europe, as he played in basketball tournaments in France and Germany during high school. “I’m looking forward to going to that part of the world because there is so much history there. Playing the national team and being able to share my faith will be awesome,” Withey said. Juenemann is also appreciative of all of the individuals who donated to Athletes in Action to help the team travel to Europe. “We’ll be doing Bible studies, lots of prayers and growing in our faith together. I really believe God has something for Jeff and me over there to bring back to the states and KU,” Juenemann said. “We want to come back and be leaders on the team from what we learn in Europe. We want to thank all of the people who support Athletes in Action to make this trip possible. We’ll be growing in our basketball skills and growing in our faith, so to be involved with Athletes in Action Please see HOOPS DUO, page 3B
Massey, Bell propel LHS softball By Clark Goble Journal-World Sports Writer
There are bad starts, and then there’s the way Lawrence High softball pitcher Lauren Massey started her high school career. Just a freshman, Massey earned the varsity start against reigning state champions Olathe East. Stellar shortstop Laura Vickers, now playing at Kansas University, stood at the plate, awaiting Massey’s first high school pitch. The ball left Massey’s hand and soared directly into Vickers’ back, right in front of then-freshman-now-senior catcher Kristen Bell. Massey worried that she was-
n’t ready to play for coach Reenie Stogsdill. “I looked at (her), and I’m like, ‘I know, I swear I can pitch,’” Massey said. Bell was just scared. “And then after that, it got a lot better,” Bell said, smiling. Massey and Bell have been battery-mates since that first pitch. After a rough first two seasons, including a 1-20 campaign in 2009, the two have helped build the Lawrence High program from the ground up. They led their team to a 12-8 record in the regular season, and they hope their hard work over the past four years continues to Please see LHS SOFTBALL, page 3B
RESTED FSHS READY Toward the end of the season, the young Free State High softball team started to gather some momentum. Batters starting stringing together hits. Pitchers started attacking hitters. Fielders stopped making careless errors. But after an eight-day layoff before today’s regional semifinal at 4:45 p.m. against Lawrence High at Topeka’s Hummer Sports Park, coach Lee Ice doesn’t know if his team is still riding that wave of energy.

Royals broadcaster being treated for cancer KANSAS CITY, MO. (AP) — The family of Paul Splittorff, the winningest pitcher in Kansas City Royals history and a popular television announcer for the team, announced Monday he has entered an area hospital for treatment of oral cancer and melanoma. Splittorff, 64, worked the Royals’ last homestand the first week in May. He had kept working Royals
games the past two seasons even though he sometimes had difficulty speaking distinctly. A left-hander, Splittorff won 166 games in a 15-year career and in 1973 became the first Royals pitcher to win 20 games. He retired in 1984 when the Royals brought up several young pitchers, including Bret Saberhagen, who led them to the 1985 World Series title.
Splittorff was entering his 24th season as a Royals broadcaster. A member of the Royals’ hall of fame, Splittorff was known for a determined work ethic as both a player and a broadcaster. Often, before games when other pitchers would be playing cards in the clubhouse, Splittorff would be jogging laps around the field. “He was always a hard worker

But if he thinks he’s made some culturechanging announcement, he hasn’t. “This is one of the last industries where the subject is off-limits,” Welts told the New York Times. “Nobody’s comfortable in engaging in a conversation.” And Welts’ revelation won’t change that. Welts is thought to be the first man holding a high position in men’s sports to say he is gay. But he is not the only one. Despite his position of authority with the Suns, unless you are a fan of the franchise, you probably had little idea of who he was until the story came out that he is gay. This is not to diminish Welts’ bravery, but a chief executive officer or a team president is not a player or coach. And in the grand scheme of things in the sports world, his coming out will have about as much impact as if I were gay and came out. We’re just periphery players. We don’t matter. Nothing will move this conversation substantially forward until an active player on one of our popular professional sports teams has the courage to step forward. And it can’t just be any level of player. Monday, it was revealed that former Villanova basketball player Will Sheridan is gay. We’ve had retired NBA player John Amechi announce he is gay. Former major leaguers Billy Bean and Glenn Burke came out, as did former NFL players Roy Simmons, Dave Kopay and Esera Tuaolo. None of them said he was gay while he was an active player, so it is difficult to ascertain what the true sporting public’s reaction was to their homosexuality. To engage in this debate fully, an active player with All-Star level skill and popularity, not the guy at the end of the bench, would have to come forward as being gay. We could not ignore that discussion. If an NBA, NFL, MLB, NHL or MLS player, who has all of the attributes in skills and personality to lift him to the top of his sport, suddenly announces he is gay, we would get an honest debate. If a championship-caliber player, who is in his prime and is a fan favorite, tells us he is gay, we’ll find out what people truly think. It is easy to say it doesn’t matter if we’re talking about a faceless executive or former player of modest impact. It’s easy for me to write that I slant to the left and could not care less about the sexual orientation of any athlete, and that I am concerned only about his or her playing abilities. But until we are actually faced with it, how do we really know what anyone truly thinks? Until the choice presented to us is that this player could help us win a championship but we have to accept he is gay, we can’t know for sure where this issue will take us. This debate is not simple. There are issues layered upon other issues to be considered. My thought right now is that the conversation at times would be ugly. At times, it would be divisive. At times, it would be enlightening and simultaneously repulsive. But it would be brutally honest, and it would move the issue forward. It would be a struggle in the beginning, and the first few athletes could suffer great losses for their courage. But in the end, gay athletes would be accepted. We might not know who they are, but we know gay athletes play every night in the NBA, MLB, NFL, NHL and MLS. It is safe to assume several of them are probably some of the top performers in their respective leagues. Maybe I’m just being naive, but I think the desire for a championship would ultimately trump the ignorance of intolerance. But we won’t know for sure until a top player in one of our favorite sports comes out and the issue of gay athletes can be discussed realistically.
with a great attitude and great mental toughness,” said Denny Matthews, the Royals’ hall of fame radio broadcaster who called every game Splittorff pitched. “Splitt has always been a fierce competitor. And he’s always taken care of himself. If anybody can battle this and fight his way through it, he’d be the guy. He’s got a lot of mental toughness.”
Kennedy introduced at Texas A&M COLLEGE STATION, TEXAS — Billy Kennedy donned a maroon jacket Monday and officially became Texas A&M’s basketball coach. He succeeds Mark Turgeon, who resigned a week ago to take over at Maryland following Gary Williams’ abrupt retirement. “This is a destination job for me,” said Kennedy, who is from Louisiana but spent the past five seasons at Murray State. About 150 fans were at Reed Arena’s basketball complex for Kennedy’s introduction. Texas A&M athletic director Bill Byrne says he was seeking someone “who understands our culture here at Texas A&M.” “When you start looking around, this man fits the bill,” Byrne said. Most of the players whom Kennedy inherited attended the news conference, despite school not being in session, and afterward spoke of their support for him. So did touted 2011 signees Jamal Branch and Jordan Green, who also came out to support the new coach. The 47-year-old Kennedy compiled a 107-53 record at Murray State. He led the Racers to the round of 32 of the NCAA Tournament in 2010, where they lost by two points to eventual national runner-up Butler.
COLLEGE ATHLETICS Coach K paid $4.7M in 2009-10 RALEIGH, N.C. — Mike Krzyzewski is once again Duke’s highest-paid employee. The Associated Press on Monday obtained the university’s most recent IRS documents for the fiscal year that ended June 30, 2010. Krzyzewski’s total compensation for that year was listed as nearly $4.7 million. That includes a base salary of $2 million, more than $2.2 million in bonuses and incentives and $420,000 in retirement and other deferred compensation. Duke’s IRS Form 990 also shows football coach David Cutcliffe made $1.7 million. That included a base salary of nearly $1.4 million and $300,000 in incentives. Athletic director Kevin White’s total compensation was listed at $908,000, including a base salary of more than $775,000.
Illinois AD Guenther retiring CHAMPAIGN, ILL. — Illinois athletic director Ron Guenther said Monday he will retire this summer, almost two decades after he was hired to stabilize an ethically and financially troubled sports program. The move creates potential uncertainty for football coach Ron Zook and men’s basketball coach Bruce Weber, both of whom have weathered storms at least in part because Guenther continued to support them.
Heisman winner George selected NEW YORK — Heisman Trophy winner Eddie George has been selected for induction into College Football Hall of Fame. George’s selection was announced Monday on ESPN’s “College Football Live.” The rest of the class of 14 former players and two former coaches will be announced today at a news conferences at the NASDAQ MarketSite.
GOLF Tiger aiming to be at U.S. Open PONTE VEDRA BEACH, FLA. — Tiger Woods says he did not do any more damage to his left knee and Achilles last week and expects to play in the U.S. Open. Woods withdrew from The Players Championship after only nine holes because of pain in his left leg. He was 6-over par at the time, the shortest tournament of his career. On his website Monday, Woods says he irritated his knee and Achilles and that there is no time frame for when it will heal. He said on Twitter that he expects to be at the U.S. Open on June 16-19 and “will do all I can to get there.”
The appellate court said it believes the NFL has proven it “likely will suffer some degree of irreparable harm without a stay.” The court also cast doubt on the conclusions of U.S. District Judge Susan Richard Nelson, who ruled April 25 that the lockout should be lifted to save the players from irreversible damage. The 8th Circuit panel put her decision on hold four days later. “The league has made a strong showing that it is likely to succeed on the merits,” the appellate court majority wrote.
MLB Indians’ Sizemore back on DL CLEVELAND — Grady Sizemore’s comeback has changed directions. He’s back on the disabled list. Sizemore was placed on the 15-day disabled list Monday due to a bruised right knee, an injury he sustained on a hard slide into second base last week. In Kansas City, where the Indians began a two-game series Monday night, trainer Lonnie Soloff said the team hoped the three-time AllStar would not be out long. “The good news is the extent of it is extremely mild,” Solooff said. “So we’re hopeful the amount of time disabled is on the short end of 15 days.” Healing of such bruises, he added, “can take 48 hours (or) 15 days.”
Mets’ Wright has stress fracture NEW YORK — Mets third baseman David Wright has a stress fracture in his lower back that is expected to keep him out a couple weeks, though the team is awaiting a second opinion before deciding whether to put him on the disabled list. Mets general manager Sandy Alderson said Monday that Wright had an MRI exam at the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York to check on his back, which has been bothering him since he made a diving tag on Houston’s Carlos Lee during a game April 19 at Citi Field.
Astros sold for $680M HOUSTON — Jim Crane learned persistence playing baseball in his youth. Turns out, he needed it. The Houston businessman failed three times to realize his dream of buying a major-league baseball team. On Monday, his attitude paid off when Houston Astros owner Drayton McLane announced that he had agreed to sell the team to a group led by Crane for $680 million — the second-highest price in major-league history if it is approved. “Each time we tried it was a little difficult,” Crane said of his efforts to buy the Texas Rangers, Chicago Cubs and, yes, the Astros. “I’m accustomed to winning. So we set our sights on winning and we never gave up.”
Phillies activate Oswalt ST. LOUIS — The Philadelphia Phillies activated pitcher Roy Oswalt from the 15-day disabled list, and the right-hander is scheduled to start tonight against the St. Louis Cardinals. Oswalt, who is 3-1 with a 3.33 ERA in five starts, had been on the DL due to lower back inflammation.
Beaten Giants fan moved SAN FRANCISCO — Nearly seven weeks after a brutal beating outside Dodger Stadium, a San Francisco Giants fan still in critical condition with brain injuries was jetted Monday to Northern California for more medical care and to be closer to his loved ones. The attack on Bryan Stow by two drunken Dodgers fans who remain at large saddened and shamed many Los Angeles residents who donated tens of thousands of dollars to his care.

Kansas track suits Firebirds’ Sloan By Ben Ward Journal-World Sports Writer
Kansas University was simply the right fit for Free State High senior Logan Sloan. Sloan signed his letter of intent to run track at KU in a celebration at FSHS on Monday afternoon after debating between staying in Lawrence or heading west to run at the University of Sloan Oregon, where he has run in camps for the past four summers. “I’m really excited that he’s chosen to and has had the opportunity to continue on (with his career),” FSHS coach Steve Heffernan said. “His last few seasons have been filled with a few injuries, which happens, but often in high school can drive kids away. “Credit to him is, he didn’t want to stop. He wants to move on, and I think once he gets there and gets a few seasons of solid, consistent running in, they’ll be really excited with what they have, and he’ll be glad he decided to stick with it.” Sloan is guaranteed a spot on the team, though no scholarship for now. Though Sloan’s parents said they were happy simply to see him continue running competitively, Sloan hopes he can continue improving his times and eventually earn a scholarship. “The coaches are great, and I have three or four friends on the team already,” Sloan said. “They said you get treated right. I just want to be a part of that program and be the best runner I can.” Sloan has been battling a stress reaction in his foot, which has left him at less than full speed for a few weeks, but hopes to run well to help the Firebirds this weekend at regionals, which begin at 3 p.m. Friday at FSHS.

Royals annihilated by Tribe, 19-1 BOX SCORE
By Doug Tucker Associated Press Sports Writer
KANSAS CITY, MO. — Pounding out 20 hits and walking eight times, the rested Cleveland Indians belted Kansas City and put Vin Mazzaro in the record book as pitching the worst game in Royals history. Mazzaro gave up 10 runs in the fourth inning and became the third pitcher since 1947 to allow 14 runs in a game, according to STATS LLC. He also became the newest addition to the Triple-A staff in Omaha, where he was demoted to immediately following the 19-1 loss by the Royals on Monday night. “It’s tough. It was a tough game,” said Mazzaro, whose earned-run average skied to 22.74. “Some of the plays didn’t go my way. It’s a funny game. You’ve just got to keep battling and attack the zone.” After the brutal fourth inning, Mazzaro allowed four more in the fifth before he was removed. “We do have a few guys who see a lot of pitches,” said Cleveland manager Manny Acta. “On those days when the pitchers are not on top of

The 25-year-old righthander was charged with 14 runs on 11 hits in 21⁄3 innings and erased the Royals’ record of 11 runs allowed in a game, which had been done three times. Michael Brantley and Matt LaPorta each had four RBIs in
the Indians’ biggest offensive outburst since scoring 22 runs at New York on April 18, 2009. Hafner and Orlando Cabrera each had three RBIs.

That sophomore season — when the Lions scored just 1.14 runs per game to support Massey in the circle — was the tipping point. At first, Bell said the Lions couldn’t figure out why all the losses were happening. “We weren’t happy with our 1-20 season at all,” Bell said. “We knew we would have to do something to change that.” “That sophomore year was a major, major blow,” Massey said. “But that kind of gave us the fire.” Bell and Massey started to work hard on their own games and encouraged teammates to start playing in the summer and hitting in the batting cages during the winter.

They then will fly to Frankfurt, Germany, before taking a bus to Macedonia to start training. The KU roommates will return to Kansas on June 3, a few days before summer classes begin. Juenemann and Withey will be joined on the team by three other Big 12 players: Cory Jefferson (Baylor); A.J. Walton (Baylor); and Will Spradling (Kansas State).

Soccer squads to start regionals By Ben Ward Journal-World Sports Writer
The sun was shining, and the mood, as it always seems to be at Free State High’s soccer practices, was light and fun on Monday afternoon. Such is the way coach Kelly Barah likes to keep things, even leading up to today’s regional playoff game, in which FSHS will play host to Junction City at 6:30 p.m. “We don’t think of this as work,” Barah said. “We take every practice seriously, but we always emphasize the importance of hav6A SOCCER ing fun.” Barah also REGIONALS suggested that the Who: Free State fourth-seed- vs. Junction City ed Firebirds When: 6:30 p.m. (9-6-1) will today pay no mind Where: Free State to Junction City’s 6-9-1 record. “We have one premise, which is, we don’t worry about the other team, we don’t worry about the referee — we worry about what we’re doing,” Barah said. “So we don’t really care who we’re playing or what their record is, but any information we may have (about their style) never hurts.” This season’s strong performance is not the only reason to be bullish on the future of the FSHS soccer program. The junior varsity dominated, outscoring opponents 726 on the way to an 11-1-3 record. Those who contributed to the memorable JV season: Marti Belot, Ciara Carey, Kaithlin Dunbar, Tanna Fanshier, Liza Farr, Jessica Ferguson, Jenna Giele, Victoria Gilman, Hanna Heline, Annie Hierl, Maren Kahler, Paige Kallenberger, Rachel Longren, Rosemary Newsome, Amanda Schaller and Sunina Upshaw.

Aging Dallas vs. maturing OKC DALLAS (AP) — Kobe Bryant and Tim Duncan have been through so many playoff series, they would be good sources to discuss the prevailing themes in the Western Conference finals, like how valuable experience is at this stage and whether there’s such thing as too much rest between rounds. Only, Bryant and Duncan aren’t around. For just the second time since 1998, neither the Lakers nor the Spurs will represent the West in the NBA finals. Instead, it’ll either be Dirk Nowitzki, Jason Kidd and the aging-but-rested Dallas Mavericks, or Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook and the rapidly maturing Oklahoma City Thunder. The Mavericks are a collection of 30-somethings bonded by a collective pursuit of their f irst championship. They have plenty of guys who’ve come close to a title, including a few holdovers from the 2006 team that interrupted the collection of conference titles piled up by the Spurs and Lakers. With strong defense and so many scoring options they never know who’ll share top billing with Nowitzki, Dallas swept the two-time defending champion Lakers in the second round. The reward was a nine-day wait for Game 1 tonight. Or maybe that was a punishment.

“That’s a looong layoff,” Mavs center Tyson Chandler said Monday. “Yesterday, the scrimmage got a little chippy, so it was obvious we were ready to play somebody else.” Dallas had to keep waiting because the Thunder had its hands full with the Memphis Grizzlies. Oklahoma City went the full seven games and then some, playing three overtimes in one game and one extra period in another. While most clubs would’ve wanted some down time, the Thunder might be the exception. With their age and exuberance, a lone day off between series may have felt like an eternity. “We have a young, ener-
getic, athletic team that loves to play and wants to play every night,” coach Scott Brooks said. “We’re excited about being in the position that we are in. We’re not ’just happy to be here’ and just ‘whatever happens happens.”’ Without the Lakers, and with the Eastern Conference finals featuring the newly crowned MVP and newly crowned Coach of the Year against the glitzy guys from South Beach, this series could be considered the undercard. Having clubs located 200 miles apart in the south, central part of the country certainly doesn’t bode well for television ratings.
Deng-James matchup key ————
LeBron neutralized as Heat lose opener with Chicago DEERFIELD , I LL . (AP) — The Chicago Bulls saw it all year from Luol Deng, so what he did against LeBron James and the Miami Heat in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference finals hardly shocked them. Hit big shots? Hit the boards? Limit the game’s most talented player? Check, check and huge check. The Bulls lead the Heat 1-0 after a 103-82 victory on Sunday, and a big reason for that is Deng. All he did was score 21 points, grab seven rebounds and contribute four steals while neutralizing James in an all-around performance that helped lift Chicago to an impressive victory. Yes, Derrick Rose was up to his usual MVP tricks, scoring 28 points, but it was Deng providing a big assist whether he was scoring or clamping down on The King. “That’s Luol Deng,” Chicago’s Carlos Boozer said. “He’s an unsung hero for us. He should have been an All-Star
this season. It’s a normal game for Lu. He plays most of the other teams’ best player — or second-best player, whatever the case may be. He scores for us, hits big shots in the clutch for us, rebounds the ball, is a great leader out there, always inspiring us. Luol needs to get more love.” If he keeps this up, that won’t be a problem. Game 2 is Wednesday at the United Center, but the Bulls are certainly not writing off Miami. “They’ve lost big games and come out aggressive the next day,” Deng said. It might help if the Heat moved the ball rather than try to beat the Bulls off the dribble, an approach that did not work. They also got hammered on the glass, with Chicago outrebounding them 45-33 and outscoring them 318 on second-chance points. Now, they’re in a hole. “Everybody understands that we are disappointed about last night’s game, and we still have an opportunity

and sometimes you have to have amnesia going into Game 2,” coach Erik Spoelstra said. “You can’t just let it go, the next 2 1⁄2 days we’re going to work to fix some of these challenges that we had last night. But we still have to understand Wednesday is a golden opportunity for us. It doesn’t matter. Sometimes there are good performances, bad performances in the playoffs. That’s really irrelevant, it really just comes down to a win and a loss.” Their chances would certainly be better if James performed like, well, James. He scored just 15 points on 5-of-15 shooting. Whether it was Deng sticking to him or the big men helping out, he simply had no room to operate and was basically a nonfactor in the game. Deng is also a big reason why the Bulls led the league with 62 wins and matched their best record since the 1997-98 championship season.

other day that a group of kids thinks I am bisexual or a lesbian. When I was younger, I had issues with girls calling me a boy because of the way I dressed, so stuff like this really hurts. In fact, I started cutting myself with pen caps. I know this gossip should not affect me so much. Am I overly sensitive, or is there something wrong with me? — Not Bi, Not Emo
Dear Not Bi: If these kids are teasing you about your empowerment? — Worried in looks or sexuality, it is bullyFlorida ing and should be reported. email@example.com
It has taken the better part of two seasons of “Fabulous Beekman Boys” (9 p.m., Planet Green) for the perfectionist Brent to finally remember that, yes, he is a doctor, and that maybe practicing his respected and highly paid profession could bring in a few extra dollars. On the other hand, this head-slapping “Duh!” moment is not so obvious. Or likely. On scripted shows like “Body of Proof,” practicing medicine (or something like it) allows Dana Delany to chew scenery, wear inappropriate clothing, and deliver preposterous dialogue. But on reality TV, being a doctor involves that certain fourletter word called “work.” And as we know, nobody actually works on reality TV. And it’s about more than shirking gainful employment. On reality TV, nobody ever reads or goes to school, either. On reality TV, graduating from high school to “stardom” is considered a career path. That’s why it’s such a welcoming place for folks from “The Hills” or “Jersey Shore” or Bristol Palin. Reality TV conveys the message that education and degrees are worthless impediments to a good tan. So imagine Brent’s reluctance to admit that he actually has an advanced degree! That’s positively subversive for this TV genre. Everyone knows that running a fancy gift shop and selling scented soap made out of goat’s milk is so much more rewarding than saving people’s lives. Or at least it makes for better (reality) television. ● “The Good Wife” (9 p.m., CBS) wraps up its second season with Alicia (Julianna Margulies) attending to a high-powered murder case (as she does nearly every week) and evaluating two of the more important ties in her life. As we’ve come to expect, things are still on the simmer stage with Will (Josh Charles). But more important to viewers is her tattered working relationship with Kalinda (Archie Panjabi). ● The Port-to-Port killer is unmasked on the season finale of “NCIS” (7 p.m., CBS), and Hetty (Linda Hunt) leaves and many want to know why on the season ender for “NCIS: Los Angeles” (8 p.m., CBS).

Dear Florida: Abusive relationships are complicated. Expecting the victim to simply walk out of a long-term marriage is often unrealistic and can be dangerous, especially if the partner is physically abusive. Please understand that the strength to leave must come from her, and you are not responsible for her choices. But your encouragement and support can be enormously helpful. The best resource is the National Domestic Violence Hotline (ndvh.org) at 1-800799-SAFE (1-800-799-7233).

Dear Annie: I have a dear friend who has been in an abusive relationship for many years. The abuse is mostly verbal, but occasionally physical. Apparently, this has been going on for their entire 23year relationship. When she would temporarily leave him, I would be very supportive, cheering her on when she took his name off of titles and deeds. When she bailed him out of jail and paid his medical bills, I tsk-tsked. I have stood by her, but have always spoken my piece. However, a recent incident was the straw that broke the camel’s back. Visiting friends saw the estranged husband come by and push and shove my friend to the ground. She was screaming. She managed to get him out of the house, and there were six witnesses to this abuse. Now, a week later, he’s back home. How can I help her? I’ve told her to file a restraining order. I’ve told her to put her foot down. I’ve given her many positive suggestions that she knows she must do but hasn’t. In my last conversation with her, I said, “If he kills you, you don’t get another chance. Get RID of him.” If I can’t help her, can I do something else? Are there support groups for friends like me who want to help and could use some resources for
