Measles case reported at Quail Run By Karrey Britt

Lawrence-Douglas County Health Department reported Tuesday that there has been one case of measles in an unvaccinated child at Quail Run School. The child is isolated and recovering from the illness. Measles is a highly contagious respiratory disease. It causes fever, runny nose, cough and a rash all over the body. Potential complications include pneumonia, ear infections, diarrhea and brain inflammation.

With the creation and use of the MMR (Measles, Mumps, Rubella) vaccine, measles cases are rare in the United States. This is the first case the Douglas County health department has investigated since the mid1990s. The disease is spread through the air by breathing, coughing or sneezing. It can be spread to others from four days before to four days after the rash appears.

Vaccination is the best protection against the disease. Children need to receive the MMR vaccine when they are between 12 and 15 months old and again before they enter kindergarten. State regulations require up-to-date immunizations before a child enters school. A couple of exceptions are allowed: a family’s religious beliefs or a doctor’s signature that it would endanger the child’s life. Lisa Horn, health department communications coordinator, said the child who is sick

is the only Quail Run student who had not received any vaccination. Four other students had only received the first dose. The health department notified their families, and they are taking appropriate action. For more information, call the health department at 8430721 and ask for a communicable disease nurse, or visit its website at — Health reporter Karrey Britt can be reached at 832-7190.

Tour offers ‘crash course’ in trash collection By Chad Lawhorn

The downtown alleys about 6:45 a.m. on Tuesday were filled with the unmistakable sounds of beer bottles clanging together in a trash bin about to be emptied and taken to the landfill. That’s nothing new. But what was new was that members of the city’s Solid Waste Task Force were there to hear it and wonder why it happens. “That was a real sign to me that we’re not doing enough to promote glass recycling in this town,” said Suzi Cammon, a member of the task force studying possible changes for the city’s trash and recycling systems. “I’m out here looking for areas that we can create incentives for people to produce less trash.”

ELMDALE — On a picture-perfect day, Gov. Sam Brownback stood in the middle of the Flint Hills and said that Kansas needs to do a better job of luring tourists to the area. “It’s a beautiful thing that exists and is now being discovered by the rest of the world,” Brownback said Tuesday to more than 100 people who gathered at the governor’s Flint Hills Visioning Summit. Outside the Ritchie Lodge at Camp Wood YMCA, a brilliant sun shone on a bright green rolling landscape. “There is no better view than outside that window right now,” Brownback said state Sen. Jeff Longbine, REmporia. “We need to share the view with people across the United States.” Those gathered have succeeded in making the Flint Hills a tourist destination for thousands, but they said more needs to be done.

Brownback defends wind-free zone By Scott Rothschild

ELMDALE — Gov. Sam Brownback on Tuesday defended his decision to expand an area designed to keep commercial wind farms out of the Flint Hills. Brownback has been criticized by officials from several southeastern counties who said the governor acted without consulting them when he doubled the size of an area to prevent further wind development. And those officials said his action may have killed a BP wind energy project in their area that had been in the planning stages for years. Brownback said his decision was based on tourism opportunities by protecting the tallgrass prairie in the Flint Hills. “We are focused on longterm economic growth. And I believe this opportunity for us in the Flint Hills and tourism represents significant near-term and long-term economic growth,” he said. Brownback this month designated the “Tallgrass Heartland” area, covering 11,000 square miles from Riley and Pottawatomie counties in the north to the state’s southern border. In 2004, then-Gov. Kathleen Sebelius discouraged wind development in a portion of the Flint Hills; Brownback’s designation doubled that area.


The appeal of the hills, the last remnants of the tallgrass prairie and a cowboy culture can be the anchor to developing more hiking, bicycling and horse riding opportunities, Kansas Wildlife and Parks Secretary Robin Jennison said. “Combine this resource with the history and heritage of the area, and we have something that is truly marketable,” Jennison said. The Flint Hills stretch across most of eastern Kansas, from Marshall County in the north to the KansasOklahoma border. It is home to the largest remaining area of tallgrass prairie. One of the challenges in developing tourism in the region is the lack of public access since there are few public lands in Kansas, Jennison said. He and Brownback said that will require working with private landowners to purchase easements for increased


Cowley County commissioners had been working with BP Wind Energy for years to build a wind farm in the northeast corner of the county, which now falls in the Tallgrass Heartland. Three state legislators — two Republicans and one Democrat — sent a letter of protest to Brownback, who is a Republican. They said that excluding them from his decision “appears to fly in the face of the concept of open and transparent government.” Cowley County Administrator Leroy Alsup was at the Flint Hills Visioning Summit on Tuesday where Brownback spoke. Alsup said he didn’t want to confront the governor about the issue, but hoped in the future “we won’t see that closed process used on other items.” Brownback noted that BP had publicly stated that it was already considering pulling out of the proposed project in Cowley County before Brownback announced his plan. BP was having trouble finding a power purchaser, a company official had said. Brownback said he would “continue to work with Cowley County in any way” and that he hoped to announce soon a potential expansion of BP operations elsewhere in Kansas.


KU med school ranked most popular By Karrey Britt

of Medicine is the nation’s most popular medical school, according to an analysis released Tuesday by U.S. News and World Report. The report ranked the percentage of students admitted to medical schools who opted to enroll in the program. At KU, 176, or 82 percent, of the 214 accepted students chose to attend the school in the academic year beginning in 2010, which was tops among the 121 U.S. medical schools that were included in the report. “I am just really proud of the school and the people who made it so popular with the students,” said Barbara Atkinson, executive vice chancellor at KU Medical Center and executive dean at the KU School of Medicine. Others in the Top 5: University of Nevada-Reno, University of New Mexico, University of Washington and University of North Dakota. Every school on the list is a state institution, which likely

are also among the top medical schools in the country when it comes to training primary care physicians. KU’s primary care program is ranked 41st. To address the need for more primary care and rural physicians, the KU School of Medicine is adding a fouryear program in Salina and expanding its Wichita campus to a full, four-year program in the fall. “The primary care piece and practicing in underserved, rural areas is a really important mission of our school, so we were pleased with that ranking as well, Atkinson said. — Health reporter Karrey Britt can be reached at 832-7190.

Suspect confesses at hearing to innappropriately touching girl

A 38-year-old Wichita man who was charged with inappropriately touching a 10-yearold Lawrence girl told a judge he was guilty during his Tuesday afternoon first appearance. The man through a Spanish language interpreter in court told Judge Pro Tem James George he was guilty of the charge and said he had made a mistake. But George quickly cut the man off and told him the hearing was not to determine his guilt or innocence. Lawrence police arrested the man Monday evening after the girl’s mother had alleged to officers that the suspect, her — Statehouse reporter Scott Rothschild can boyfriend, had molested her

daughter at a residence Sunday. The girl, who was not injured, had talked to her mother after the COURTS alleged incident occurred, police said. Assistant Douglas County District Attorney James McCabria said the alleged offense occurred at the Easy Living Mobile Home Park, in the 3300 block of Iowa Street. Prosecutors filed one count of aggravated indecent liberties with a child against the man Tuesday.

George appointed an attorney for the man and set his bond at $150,000 cash or surety. The man said in court he had been given a place to stay while working in Lawrence. McCabria also said U.S. Immigration and Customs has a hold on the man’s immigration status. George ordered the man to not have contact with the girl or any other witnesses if he posts bond, and he set a hearing for 2 p.m. May 24.

tourism opportunities. Brownback said he hoped the summit would produce specific projects that the group could pursue. He is holding a series of summits on key areas of the Kansas economy. Last month, the first summit took place in Wichita on the aviation industry. Future ones will deal with biosciences, the military and renewable energy. Brownback stated the obvious — Kansas lacks beaches and mountains — but he said the authentic nature of the prairie is something that appeals to people. Leroy Alsup, county administrator of Cowley County, said he attended the summit to find out “how we can use this asset to improve the economy in our area.” Darla Stewart, with the El Dorado Convention and Visitors Bureau, said she was there to listen and learn. “We’ve been pleased with efforts so far” to promote the area, she said.


Task force members loaded into a city bus Tuesday morning and followed around a city trash truck crew while it emptied alleys in downtown, in the Oread neighborhood and in a more traditional suburban neighborhood. The tour was part of what Mayor Aron Cromwell said is a “crash course” in how the city currently operates its trash and recycling businesses. Understanding how the system works will be critical when it comes to make recommendations on how the system should change. For example, buying more fullyautomated trucks that use smaller crews is an idea that is expected to get discussion by the task force. But Tuesday’s tour showed how such trucks may struggle in the alleys and the densely populated student districts where parked cars and over— Statehouse reporter Scott Rothschild can head power lines could inter-

— Barbara Atkinson, executive vice chancellor at Kansas University Medical Center and executive dean at the KU School of Medicine contributed to the rankings, since tuition for in-state students at public medical schools is significantly lower than tuition for out-of-state students or at private schools. At KU, annual medical school tuition is $28,084 for a Kansas resident and $48,504 for a nonresident. Atkinson said there were 100 Kansas students who qualif ied and could have been accepted into the school this year, but KU didn’t have enough spots available. “I think students know that when it’s that competitive and if they’ve been offered a spot, this is a good place to be,” she said. “But, we really need to be able to find a way to increase even more.” The report highlighted that the five most popular schools

SOLID WASTE TALKS Next up for the city’s Solid Waste Task Force is a “public listening session.” The task force will host a public meeting at 6 p.m. June 8 at City Hall. The meeting will include a presentation about the city’s trash and

recycling system, but it mainly will be an “open mic” opportunity for the public to tell the task force what changes it wants the task force to consider, or what it does not want changed with the current system.

fere with the trucks’ roboticlike arms. The tour also highlighted how much faster crews can operate in a typical suburban neighborhood when residents use wheeled trash carts instead of the standard trash cans. The task force is expected to discuss the idea of requiring residents to use the trash carts that can be emptied with mechanical lifts. “I think we’re seeing there are areas that automation will work pretty well, and there are areas where it won’t work,” Cromwell said. As for recycling, Cromwell said he will push for some improvements in that area even before the task force finishes its report, which likely will be in about 10 months. Cromwell said he

will lobby to have money for an improved glass recycling system included in the 2012 budget. He said glass collection containers need to be placed near bars, and he said he is continuing to work with Kansas City-based Ripple Glass to take glass collected by the city. The company uses the glass to make insulation. “We want to do a lot better at recycling,” Cromwell said. “We’re above average nationally, but we’re the type of community that we should be way above average. People should be looking to us to see what is possible in this area.”

Using incentives for retail expansion debated


Bill repealing oil tax breaks blocked The Senate blocked a bill Tuesday that would repeal about $2 billion a year in tax breaks for the five biggest oil companies, a Democratic response to $4-a-gallon gasoline that might fare better when Congress and the White House negotiate a deal later this year to increase the government’s ability to borrow. The bill was defeated on a procedural vote. But Democrats hope to build their case to include the measure in a deficit-reduction package being negotiated by key lawmakers and the Obama administration. Lawmakers from both parties are demanding deficit reduction as part of deal to increase the government’s ability to borrow and avoid an unprecedented default on U.S. Treasury bonds. “This bill says that even the most rich and powerful among us must do their fair share to help us reduce the deficit,” said Sen. Robert Menendez, D-N.J., the bill’s sponsor. “Their high-priced lobbyists cannot stop us from doing what is fair and what is right.”

Coast Guard reopens part of river The Coast Guard reopened the swollen Mississippi River north of New Orleans on Tuesday, allowing cargo vessels on the nation’s busiest waterway to pass slowly, one at a time in the latest effort to reduce pressure from rising floodwaters. A 15-mile stretch at Natchez, Miss., was closed entirely earlier in the day, blocking vessels heading toward the Gulf of Mexico and others trying to return north after dropping off their freight. Had the channel remained closed, it could’ve brought traffic to a standstill up and down the river, which moves about 500 million tons of cargo each year. That sort of interruption could’ve cost the U.S. economy hundreds of millions of dollars for every day of idled barges carrying coal, timber, iron, steel and more than half of America’s grain exports. Coast Guard officials said wakes generated by passing barge traffic could increase the strain on levees designed to hold back the river. Authorities were also concerned that barges could not operate safely in the flooded river, which has risen to the level of some docks and submerged others. 3 | LOS ANGELES

Ex-gov. tells of reason for split from wife He’s one of the most famous people on the planet, a two-term governor of California, a movie star and a former world champion bodybuilder with a profile so huge that just one name, Arnold, instantly identifies him to almost everyone. Yet somehow, for more than a decade, Arnold Schwarzenegger managed to keep an incredible secret from the public and his wife, prominent former TV journalist and Kennedy heiress Maria Shriver: that he fathered a child with a woman on his household staff more than a decade ago. The revelation came Tuesday, just a week after Schwarzenegger and Shriver announced they had separated. “I understand and deserve the feelings of anger and disappointment among my friends and family,” Schwarzenegger wrote in a statement. “There are no excuses and I take full responsibility for the hurt I have caused. I have apologized to Maria, my children and my family. I am truly sorry.” 4 | NEW YORK CITY

IMF chief under suicide watch at jail IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn was placed under a suicide watch in jail, while pressure mounted on him to resign Tuesday and the hotel maid who accused him of attempted rape said through her lawyer that she had no idea who he was when she reported him to the police. Law enforcement officials emphasized that Strauss-Kahn had not tried to harm himself but that guards were keeping a close watch on him just in case. Meanwhile, details began to emerge about his accuser, a 32-year-old immigrant from the West African nation of Guinea with a 15-year-old daughter. “There is no way in which there is any aspect of this event which could be construed consensual in any manner. This is nothing other than a physical, sexual assault by this man on this young woman,” her attorney, Jeffrey Shapiro, told The Associated Press. He added: “She did not know who this man was until a day or two after this took place.” 5 | DUBLIN

British queen makes historic peace trip Sometimes words aren’t necessary. That was the case Tuesday when Queen Elizabeth II placed a wreath in Dublin’s Garden of Remembrance to honor the Irish rebels who lost their lives fighting for freedom — from Britain. The queen became the first British monarch to set foot in Dublin for a century. Her four-day visit is designed to show that the bitter enmity of Ireland’s war of independence 90 years ago has been replaced by Anglo-Irish friendship and that peace has become irreversible in the neighboring British territory of Northern Ireland. The ceremony under threatening steel-gray skies was simple and direct, its meaning clear. There were no apologies, no acknowledgment of misdeeds, but the presence of the British monarch on ground that is sacred to many Irish was a powerful statement of a desire to start anew.

THE FORMER FARMLAND INDUSTRIES SITE on the eastern edge of Lawrence is shown in an aerial photo taken Monday. The cleanup of the property is on schedule to be completed by the end of the summer so that the city can begin converting the site into a new industrial and business park.

City mulls future of former Farmland Industries site —————

New business park may feature renewable energy projects By Chad Lawhorn

The tearing down continues at the former Farmland Industries fertilizer site, but now City Hall leaders are starting to spend more time considering how to build up the 467-acre property on the eastern edge of Lawrence. “We have been pleased with how it is going out there,” said Matt Bond, a city engineer who is overseeing cleanup of the site. “We haven’t run into any issues that we haven’t expected yet.” Bond said Lawrence-based R.D. Johnson Excavating is on schedule to complete the cleanup of the property by the end of the summer, which will clear the way for the city to begin converting the site into a new industrial and business park. City commissioners at their Tuesday evening meeting unanimously agreed to apply for a federal grant that could make the future business park

a unique renewable energy attraction. Commissioners are hoping to use the grant to receive $50,000 in consulting services to determine whether portions of the Farmland site can be used for renewable energy projects such as wind, solar and geothermal energy production. “I think it will be surprising to a lot of people how feasible alternative energy is in our area,” said Mayor Aron Cromwell, who sells and designs solar systems in his private business. “There are some definite possibilities out there.” City officials said they aren’t necessarily expecting the Farmland property to become the site of a major renewable energy center. Instead, they think the site may have potential for smaller-scale projects that could be used to provide power to businesses that locate in the business park. “It could be a great selling point to businesses,” Bond said.

He said a layman’s analysis suggests wind energy could be generated on the large hill on the site, and that a series of ponds along 15th Street could house solar panels once they are capped. The EPA program would provide the city with technical experts to evaluate the site and explain what steps would need to be taken to add renewable energy projects to the property. Commissioners also are expected to soon begin discussing potential projects to extend infrastructure to the Farmland site. That could include an extension of 19th Street, an extension of Franklin Road and a new traffic signal to provide better access to the property, and perhaps a new road to connect the Farmland property with the adjacent East Hills Business Park. — City reporter Chad Lawhorn can be reached at 832-6362.

The idea of special taxes needs some special attention at City Hall. City commissioners at a Tuesday afternoon study session agreed that they need to have a conversation sooner rather than later about just how much they are going to use incentives — like Community Improvement Districts — to attract new retail development. Commissioners broached the topic as part of a discussion of City Commission goals for the year. Some commissioners said the current city goals may be sending the wrong message about how CITY much the city COMMISSION intends to use retail incentives, especially the creation of districts that allow retailers to charge a special sales tax to pay for both public and private development expenses. “If we’re really not going to use them, let’s not put them on our list and have everybody go through all the effort,” City Commissioner Mike Amyx said. The idea of retailers charging a special tax — currently two do, The Oread hotel near Kansas University and the Bauer Farm development near Sixth Street and Wakarusa Drive — became a hot topic during April’s City Commission election.

Cordley students get taste of local Woman farm, school produce for lunch

“Sweet.” That’s how 7-year-old Reed Parker-Timms described the strawberries that he ate for lunch Tuesday at Cordley School. They were the first item to disappear from his tray. He helped pick them the day before at a farm just southeast of town. “I put my fingers on the green part and then pulled a little and the strawberry came off,” he said. He estimated he picked 50. There was a lot of enthusiasm about the day’s lunch. That’s because it contained more local produce than usual, and the 310 students — kindergarten through sixth grade — had learned about the health and environment benefits. In fact, 30 percent more students chose to eat the cafeteria lunch instead of bringing their own. Students loaded up on local produce at the salad bar: eggs, radishes, lettuce and strawberries. The cookies were made with local sunflowers and flour,


and 715 restaurant provided a salad dressing made with local ingredients. “It’s really good. It’s a lot better than our regular lunches,” said Lourdes Kalusha, a sixthgrader. The “Farm-to-School” lunch was coordinated by Linda Cottin of Cottin’s Hardware, a local-food enthusiast, and Kelly Jones, a parent. It was the second year for the project. Last year, the entire meal was local, and this year, it was a scaleddown version. The lunch project cost $365, which were donations collected through the PTA. It paid the West Junior High School student gardeners $90 for 15 pounds of lettuce, washed. Jones said they plan to serve a full-scale local meal this fall and already have started working with farmers and restaurants. “We want the kids to be excited about healthy foods and to try new foods that are grown in Kansas,” she said.

How many fire poles are there in Lawrence fire stations?


There are four, according to Bill Stark, administrative division chief for Douglas County Fire Medical. Three are made of brass. Station No. 1, 746 Ky., has two poles so firefighters can come down on either side of the engine. Another is at the investigation center, 1839 Mass., and the fourth is at a former f ire station on Lawrence Avenue. Stark said they were planning to remove that pole and install it at the administration office in a display.

County Commission to consider industrial expansion Douglas County commissioners will consider today a site plan for the construction of a 24,000-square-foot industrial building east of town near North 1700 and East 1700 roads. The building would serve as an extension to the McFarlane Aviation Products facilities. Commissioners will also consider a project agreement with the Kansas Department of Transportation concerning funding for Route 438 improvements. The currently proposed improvements include extending turn lanes and applying new pavement markings to existing asphalt in association with the Berry Plastics facility. Under the agreement, KDOT would reimburse Douglas County for 85 percent of all construction costs not in excess of $300,000. The 6:35 p.m. commission meeting is open to the public and will be at the Douglas County Courthouse, 1100 Mass.

Warning issued on ‘shopper’ scam Douglas County District Attorney Charles Branson on Tuesday warned residents about an “investigative shopper or mystery shopper” scam after a Douglas County woman was scammed out of several thousand dollars. Branson said the woman responded to an email from an out-of-state company offering

to compensate her and instructed her to go to several area businesses that performed money wire transfers. The email claimed the companies were suspected of fraudulent practices, and the woman was scheduled to return to the businesses the next day to ask for a refund from the companies. The investigative shopper company had given her a $4,000 check to deposit into her bank account to use for the transfers. The check was later returned for being fictitious, Branson said. The woman learned the $4,000 was not deposited into her account and she lost her own funds for the wire transfers she placed. “These offerings are never legitimate. They are always a scam,” Branson said. “Never spend money from a deposited check from a questionable source until you verify with your financial institution the check has cleared.” Branson said the rule applies to money orders and cashier’s checks as well.

The town has been called the “Birthplace of the Civil War — Where Slavery Began to Die.” The pro-slavery Lecompton Constitution was rejected by


Congress and led to a split in the Democratic Party, which allowed Republican Abraham Lincoln to win the presidency with 39 percent of the vote. Paul Bahnmaier, president of the Lecompton Historical Society, has been pushing for recognition of the town as part of Kansas’ 150th anniversary of statehood.

Lawrence High to add assistant principal Welcoming ninth-graders next year will mean hiring an additional administrator at Lawrence High School and restoring hours for another at Free State High School. Members of the Lawrence school board will gather for a special meeting at 5:30 p.m. Thursday at district headquarters, 110 McDonald Drive, to approve several personnel moves, including these two related to reconfiguration of schools: ● Felton Avery, a full-time assistant principal at Lawrence High, is resigning to become a half-time assistant principal. ● Mike Hill, a half-time assistant principal at Free State, will move back to fulltime status. Hill, who will remain the school’s athletic director and baseball coach, had been full time until this school year, when budget cuts reduced his position to halftime; the other half of Hill’s time this year has been spent as a teacher. Each school is gaining administrative resources to help handle the addition of about 380 ninth-graders at each campus.

Obama seeks to make imprint amid chaos By Ben Feller Associated Press Writer

W A S H I N G T O N — President Barack Obama is confronting the wrenching change in the Middle East in a burst of diplomacy, hoping to save a crumbling peace process and addressing the Arab revolt country-by-country in a world now free of the menace of Osama bin Laden. Opening a week-long focus on the Mideast, Obama on Tuesday urged Israelis and Palestinians back to the bargaining table against growing odds. His broader narrative will be delivered in a speech Thursday, when he will make his pitch that a region long defined by division now has its moment of opportunity because its people are rising up and risking their lives for change. Speaking alongside Jordan’s King Abdullah II on Tuesday, Obama declared, “We both share the view that despite the many changes — or perhaps because of the many changes — that are taking place in the region, it’s more vital than ever that both Israelis and Palestinians find a way to get back to the table and begin negotiating a process whereby they can create two states that are living side by side in peace and security.“ Yet his upbeat approach is being undermined by daily violence and by hardened positions that, in many ways, seem as unmovable as ever. For the first time since uprisings began roaring across North Africa and the Middle East months ago,


Prosecutors alleged the crimes started in 1999 — when Becker was president and CEO of Countrywide Bank, formerly Meriden State Bank — and he tried to hide assets in 2003 after he was fired. Brenda Schmitt Becker admitted in her plea that her husband devised a scheme to make it appear she was indigent once he learned the FBI was investigating him. She helped him liquidate, transfer


campaign that opposed the districts. Mayor Aron Cromwell said he thought the commission informally had sent a message about its thoughts on the use of special taxing districts but supported taking more formal action. “I think we have said before that almost never is when we are going to use that particular tool,” Cromwell said. “But we can’t foresee every project that may be out there.” Commissioners Hugh Carter and Mike Dever both said they supported having a commission discussion on the topic but wanted to be more open to possibly using the districts for some retail development in the city. “I think we do need to establish what some of the characteristics of a project are before we would consider a district, but I absolutely think we still need to consider them and remain open to them,” Carter said. Amyx said if the commission is going to hear more requests for special taxing districts in the future, the commission needs to decide whether it will require businesses who charge the special sales tax to post a sign notifying customers of the tax’s existence. The previous City Commission had indicated it was leaning in that direction but never formalized such a policy. In other news from the city’s goal-setting and budget study session, commissioners: ● Asked City Manager David Corliss to get a firm update from the Lawrence Community Shelter on its efforts to find a location for the homeless shelter.

PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA MEETS with Jordan's King Abdullah II in the Oval Office at the White House in Washington on Tuesday. Obama will try to thread them together in way that’s relevant at home and supportive of those seeking freedom abroad. He will do so amid questions about his consistency toward brutally repressive governments. P ut together, Obama’s events this week show a president seeking to seize command of a Mideast agenda. He met with Abdullah on Tuesday, readied for Thursday’s Mideast speech, looked to host Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu Friday and planned to address a prominent pro-Israel group on Sunday. The speech will present Obama’s impressions of changes that, as his spokesman Jay Carney put it, have been more remarkable in the past five months than the past 50 years. Egypt and Tunisia overturned their leaders. Bahrain and Syria have

used overwhelming force to crush protesters. Libya’s move to destroy a rebel movement has drawn the United States into a conflict with no clear end in sight. And in the midst of it all, the U.S. launched a mission in Pakistan to take down bin Laden, the man behind the worst terrorist attacks on U.S. soil. Yet the timing for the speech is problematic. Even though the tracking down and killing of bin Laden offers context — the president is likely to frame al-Qaida ideology as the bankrupt past and the Arab push for rights as the future — the latest reality is a Mideast peace process in deep trouble. In a dramatic new expression of frustration on Sunday, Palestinians marched and tried to breach Israel’s borders from the West Bank, Gaza, Syria, Lebanon and Jordan on Sunday, leading to

and conceal his assets to keep the government from taking them to collect on fines, forfeitures and restitution, Grissom’s office said. In her plea she admitted to: ● Creating a f ictitious mortgage falsely claiming she had loaned her husband more than $1 million. ● Selling more than $422,000 worth of property in Finney County in western Kansas, liquidating a firearms collection for more than $425,000 and selling mineral rights in Finney County for more than $78,000. ● Purchasing a 1997 Jeantot Marine 42-foot Privilege Catamaran yacht named

“Pearls and Boots” and buying a corporation in Panama for the purpose of liquidating and transferring assets. ● Forming a Nevada corporation to act as a holding company where the couple could park real estate and personal property until they could be sold and the proceeds moved offshore. Her sentencing is scheduled for Aug. 29, and the parties have agreed to a sentence of one year plus one day, Grissom’s office said. Assistant U.S. attorneys Richard Hathaway and Christine Kenny, a former Douglas County district attorney, prosecuted the case.

have a broader discussion about the community plans to serve the homeless after a new shelter opens. Carter said he believes there are many homeless people who currently use the existing shelter’s drop-in center who will be left downtown without a place to go once a new shelter opens. The new shelter, as currently planned, won’t have a drop-in center. Only people who are part of a broader program will be

allowed to stay at the new shelter. ● Agreed to hold a study session at 4 p.m. June 14 at City Hall to discuss the Lawrence Police Department and its future needs. New Chief Tarik Khatib has asked for $1.2 million in funding to add 14 new positions to the police force. — City reporter Chad Lawhorn can be reached at 832-6362. Follow him at

deadly clashes. The White House singled out Syria, where a government crackdown on protesters is growing ever more dire. It was Obama who had declared that Palestinians and Israelis could reach a peace deal by September. Instead, negotiations have stalled again, and Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas is pushing for the United Nations to recognize an independent Palestinian state over U.S. and Israeli objections. Further complicating the situation are plans for a unity Palestinian government between Hamas in Gaza and a Fatah-dominated administration in the West Bank. Hamas is considered a terrorist organization by the U.S., and its charter calls for the destruction of Israel.

Arbitrary move Protecting the Kansas Flint Hills is important, but last week’s move to ban wind-farm development in an 11,000square-mile area raises some questions.


any business and civic leaders in south-central Kansas are understandably upset with the way Gov. Sam Brownback moved forward with a plan to more than double the area that will be off limits to further wind energy development. Last week, Brownback announced that he had decided to set aside nearly 11,000 square miles of land in eastern Kansas to create what he called the “Tallgrass Heartland.” The area expands the region designated by former Gov. Kathleen Sebelius as the “Heart of the Flint Hills.” The entire area now will be free from further commercial wind farm development. The press release making the announcement noted that plan was supported by a “broad-based coalition of Flint Hills ranchers, preservationists, wind developers, power companies and government officials.” Unfortunately, that coalition didn’t include officials in some Kansas communities who had been working for years to attract wind farm developments in their areas. Officials in Cowley County said this week that BP Wind Energy was only a step away from starting construction on a wind farm in the northeast corner of the county. The site would have been in close proximity to the Elk River Wind Facility that went into operation in 2005 and the Caney River Wind Project that is under construction and expected to go on line in January. Now, Cowley County officials say, years of work have been wasted. Even as they praised efforts to protect the native grassland of the Flint Hills, editorial writers at the Winfield Courier, published in the Cowley County seat, raised ethical questions about the deal Brownback struck with energy producers. The governor, they said, apparently “dickered with BP Wind Energy to drop its project” without consulting any officials, legislators or landowners from Cowley County. The editorial also questioned whether political favoritism was involved in the decision to allow the other wind farms in the area while pulling the plug on the Cowley County project. In his statement, Brownback said his administration would continue to vigorously support wind power development in other parts of the state. Nonetheless, the decision to simply remove such a large part of the state from any consideration for such projects seems a bit arbitrary. Protecting what remains of the tallgrass prairie that once covered a vast portion of our region is a good goal, but it seems there may have been some room for wind development compromise on a case-by-case basis. If all wind-power projects are to be banned in this area, it’s only fair that the state apply tough restrictions on all other business or industrial ventures that might harm the pristine prairie. The Flint Hills often are mentioned as a prime attraction for Kansas tourism. That’s great, but it’s highly doubtful that tourism will provide an economic boom for this region great enough to offset what may be lost in terms of business and industrial development.

Politicians and political activists frequently declare the end of the world will occur if their candidate isn’t elected, or if the debt ceiling isn’t raised. Some conservative Christians think the end is on the way because of behavior and practices they judge immoral. Somehow the country, not to mention the planet, survives and when “doomsday” passes, the prognosticators live to predict Armageddon on another day. Now comes radio preacher Harold Camping, the nearly 90year-old owner of a network of stations he calls “Family Radio.” Camping once belonged to a traditional church. He then decided all churches are corrupt and people should leave whatever congregation they’re in and listen only to him because only his interpretation of Scripture is true. I believe that is one characteristic of a cult. Camping paid for a full-page color ad in USA Today, proclaiming May 21 as the day the world will end. According to the biblical standard, a prophet must always be right to be a spokesman for God. Camping falls considerably short of that standard because he has previously declared the world would end on other days, though the last time he left the door open, saying, “I could be wrong.” At least that “prophecy” came true. The late Jeane Dixon fancied herself a psychic. She made many predictions that went unfulfilled. The one prediction that did come true was President John F. Kennedy’s assassination and that lucky “prophecy” made her an international celebrity. It doesn’t take much to get attention these days. The earliest recorded dooms-

Camping and his “acolytes ignore what the

Jesus they claim to represent said about such things.” day forecaster, according to Isaac Asimov’s “Book of Facts” (1979), wrote on an Assyrian clay tablet circa 2800 BC. It bore the words “Our earth is degenerate in these latter days. There are signs that the world is speedily coming to an end. Bribery and corruption are common.” That guy should have lived to see modern-day Washington, D.C.! Down through the ages, many people have made predictions that the world would end — in 70 AD (a group of Jewish ascetics with apocalyptic beliefs, wgbh/pages/frontline/shows/ap ocalypse/), the year 365 (credit that one to Hilary of Poitiers), and 500, the year Roman theologian Sextus Julius Africanus calculated the End would come, 6,000 years after his dating of Creation. There are many more of these characters — all of them wrong. A prominent contemporary “prophet” is Iran’s president, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. He claims he got word from Allah

that he — Ahmadinejad — has been chosen to help end the world by making war on Israel at which time the 12th imam will reveal himself and create a worldwide caliphate. He also claims there are no homosexuals in Iran. Judge the validity of his prophetic voice for yourself. Google “A Brief History of the Apocalypse” and be entertained by the many false prophets through the ages. Camping and his acolytes ignore what the Jesus they claim to represent said about such things. When asked about the end of the age (see Matthew 24), Jesus said wars and rumors of wars, earthquakes, famines, nation rising against nation and a lot of other bad stuff would come first. All of these are part of the daily news. But then he said these things are just “the beginning.” Jesus then said His followers would be afflicted, even killed; they will betray and hate one another, many false prophets will arise and the “Gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness to all nations; and then shall the end come.” That last part hasn’t yet occurred, though people who study such things say they see signs of it approaching. Consider the futuristic book, Revelation. I’m not expecting the end on May 21. That’s because of something else Jesus said. He said he would return when people “least expect it” (Luke 12:40). By that standard, Mr. Camping is wrong because he expects the end to come this Saturday. And so it won’t.

Retirement needs To the editor: It’s no news that middleincome seniors depend on Social Security and Medicare. It’s also no news that Republicans seem to want to privatize both Social Security and Medicare in the guise of giving seniors better choices and cutting the federal budget and the deficit. Since when does profit-taking in the health care industry save the customer money? How has competition cut costs? Private health care has never cost more than it does now for pre-retirement folks. Furthermore, a more recent tactic is to attempt to vote into law spending caps that will, in the future, require more and more federal and state cuts resulting in the elimination of important programs that seniors and the uninsured depend on. We are not all millionaires! We are, however, taxpayers who live frugally, who have saved for our retirement pretty vigorously but are now being told it will not be enough for us to survive without Social Security and Medicare. I worry that our safety nets may not be available to our children and grandchildren. Legislators, pay attention! Don’t let your ideologies stand in the way of considering the needs of all of us today and in the future. Carol Abrahamson, Lawrence

Stop the killing

To the editor: Anyone who knows the history of Afghanistan for the past 300 years knows that their religion and the rules that govern their — Cal Thomas is a columnist for Tri- lives are one and the same. Even bune Media Services. those who have co-operated with us consider us infidels at best. No invaders have ever succeeded in bringing meaningful change to the basic way of life in Afghanistan and no one ever will unless they kill, at minimum, 27 million of their people. Certainly the 500,000 Russian troops proved inadequate as did the British before them. We violate every principle they live by and attempt to rally support for a totally corrupt central power that is viewed as our puppet. Our true enemies are in Pakistan, but we invade the homes in Afghanistan and kill their men, women and children and those we do not kill we maim. We blame the Taliban and say they are part of a conspiracy. Yet the Afghans welcome them as protectors fighting an occupying force. One thing everyone concedes is that 100 years with half a million troops would bring about no lasting change when we leave. So stop the killing now and save a lot of lives. Everett G. Hickam, Lawrence

Infrastructure needs attention



Saturday won’t be the end


Sunday’s power outage in Lawrence is one more reminder among many that America’s basic infrastructure — roads, bridges, sewers, the electrical grid — are all getting old. As anyone over the age of 50 will tell you, as you get older things start to break down, and constant maintenance and replacement become necessary. What’s true for the human body is equally true for the wonders of 20th century engineering (and, in some case, 19th century). The lessons to be learned from our increasing utilities failures are very much the same as lessons to be learned from the Fukushima nuclear disaster. All around the world we depend upon aging systems and structures that are beginning to fall apart. If one looks at the basic technologies upon which our daily lives depend, it is clear that many are quite old. Much of the Interstate highway system was built more than half a century ago. The electrical grid, from the huge power transmission lines to the conduits that run underground, overground, and in many of our houses, are of equal or greater age. A few years ago I read a fascinating book about how long it

Mike Hoeflich around the world “weAlldepend upon aging

systems and structures that are beginning to fall apart.”

would take for our built environment to crumble and disappear without human presence. The answer was, for the most part, shockingly short. The destructive powers of weather, corrosion, and age are well known to civil engineers, but most of us take our basic services for granted. When we flip the light switch we expect the lights to go on. When we turn a tap we expect water to flow. When we go onto the highway, we expect the roads to be passable. But this requires a huge human effort and a massive financial investment.

In the current economy, with gasoline around $4 a gallon, few people are willing to talk about the need for infrastructure replacement. As we cut back on education and essential human services, infrastructure replacement and repair is not a popular subject. And yet we continue to expect everything to work and work properly and consistently. I think that many Americans are in a state of denial about the terrible condition of our infrastructure. Instead of mobilizing to repair and replace we simply deny the problem. We grumble at the folks in charge of infrastructure, government, utilities, private corporations, and yet we do not recognize the impending crisis, a crisis which worsens day by day. In spite of our economic woes, it is time that common sense prevails. America’s states and municipalities, along with the federal government, need to survey our infrastructure and find ways to finance its repair and replacement. Otherwise, at some point, the lights are going to go out and stay out. — Mike Hoeflich, a distinguished professor in the Kansas University School of Law, writes a regular column for the Journal-World.

From the Lawrence Daily Journal-World for May 18, 1911: "A string of farm YEARS horses, drivers, bronAGO chos, draft animals, and IN 1911 all other breeds of equines standing in double line extending from the Kaw bridge to Haskell, with a side string from Massachusetts to McCook field and once around the track, would just about equal the horsepower contained in the Lawrence battery of automobiles. According to the recent census Lawrence has a motor population of 135 cars. These chug-chug wagons average just slightly less than 30 horsepower each, which is equivalent to a double row of horses extending over forty blocks. The Ford seems to be the most popular car in Lawrence, according to the records of the city clerk's books. … The motor population of Lawrence includes everything from a single cylinder Brush 'peanut' to seven passenger touring cars, and the elegantly silent running Packards." — Compiled by Sarah St. John

Kansas tornado-free for May — so far HUTCHINSON — Severe weather that has battered much of the U.S. has largely bypassed Kansas this spring, but a meteorologist said residents shouldn’t get complacent about preparing for tornadoes. For the first time in nearly 30 years, Kansas experienced no tornadoes during the first two weeks of May. The last time that happened was in 1984. “It’s extremely unusual,” said Chance Hayes, meteorologist from the National Weather Service in Wichita. “It’s something that Kansans are definitely not accustomed to, especially since May has a lot of tornadoes.” Kansas typically sees an average of more than 15 tornadoes in the first two weeks of May, The Hutchinson News reported Tuesday. From January to May, it averages 43, but this year, it recorded only two in February and six in April. While many people suggest the calm weather is the result of the La Niña weather pattern, Hayes said that isn’t entirely accurate. “We’re simply in an atmospheric pattern where strong storms haven’t materialized,” he said.

Goal achieved

Tom Keegan

Woodland returns to roots A silver-haired gentleman who has made his name in business never could win a dunk contest against Blake Griffin, but he could, for one hole at least, be twice as good as a young man who ranks 11th on the 2011 PGA Tour money list ($2,047,660) and sixth in average driving distance (301.9 yards). Just such a scenario played out Tuesday afternoon at Lawrence Country Club on an oh-so sunny, perfect day. Therein lies one of the beauties of golf. Greatness, however fleeting, can be achieved by anybody, any time. Laird Noller, playing with friends Bob Stephens, Bob Shmalberg and Frank Becker, pulled a 4hybrid out of his bag and holed out from 168 yards away for an eagle on No. 18. Playing one foursome Woodland in back of them with Kansas University golf coach Kit Grove and fellow former KU golfers Jason Seeman and Jay Hepler, Gary Woodland lipped out a short chip shot and settled for a par on a hole that started with a drive of longer than 300 yards. Woodland was happy for Noller, who plays to a respectable 15.6 handicap index, not envious of him. After all, he stayed with Noller and wife Karleen in Palm Desert in January when he played in the Bob Hope Classic and was edged by Jhonattan Vegas in a playoff. That’s when Woodland put himself high on the radar of golf analysts and companies looking to sponsor players they project to hog air time. He won the Transitions in Orlando, Fla., in March and has a fifth-place and sixth-place finish to his name. In April, he finished The Masters at two-under par, good for 24th. “Completely different game from three years ago,” Grove said after finishing his round with Woodland. “So in control with every shot.” Five of Woodland’s last eight tournament rounds were played with Phil Mickelson. He played two rounds with Tiger Woods. Tom Watson joined him for his practice round at Augusta National. And here was Woodland playing with his buddies at LCC during his week off. He will resume his tour schedule next week at the Byron Nelson Classic in Irving, Texas, but first he’ll play another round today at LCC with KU basketball coach Bill Self, assistant athletic director Sean Lester and Seeman. Woodland took the time Tuesday to sit down and talk about the future of KU’s golf program, what playing at Kansas did for his game, how Augusta National suits his game and what he has gotten out of playing with golf’s biggest names. “Phil’s been great,” Woodland said of Mickelson. “He’s given me a lot of confidence, talking about certain aspects of my game that he’s in love with. That’s great to hear from guys like that. You learn a lot playing with him. He doesn’t always do it pretty, but he knows what he’s doing out there and I think that’s the main deal.” Woodland learns just from watching Mickelson think his way through a round. “He knows the golf course,” Woodland said. “He’s got so much knowledge out there it’s unbelievable. He gets it up and down as well as anybody.” Receiving a short-game compliment from Mickelson would Please see WOODLAND, page 5B

LHS advances to state after beating Free State, Topeka By Clark Goble Journal-World Sports Writer

TOPEKA — Lawrence High senior catcher Kristen Bell needed a little help after helping her team defeat Topeka High in a wild regional championship on Tuesday. S h e d i d n’ t k n ow t h e f i n a l score. But after hoisting the regional plaque and knowing that her team would be playing in the state tournament at Kansas University’s Arrocha Ballpark next weekend,

Bell didn’t really care about the score, 12-10. She just knew that four years of hard work had finally paid off. Big time. “I can’t believe it,” Bell said. “I’m just in shock.” The Lions beat Free State, 4-2, to earn the opportunity to play for the regional championship. The championship was far from a sure thing, despite coach Reenie Stogsdill feeling more confident about her team’s chances than ever before.

The Lions (14-8) fell into a 5-0 hole after three innings, but stormed back to put up six runs in the top of the fourth. Bell said the team used a photo in the dugout for inspiration. It’s a picture of the team, adorned with the words “One Team, One Goal.” That goal was qualifying for the state tournament. “When we got down five, they came in and I said ‘No excuses, no blaming anybody, we need to get this done,’” Stogsdill said. “And then they come out and get them

all back that inning. It was awesome.” The Trojans didn’t relent, though, scoring three runs in the bottom of the fourth to pull back ahead, 8-6. In the fifth inning, freshman Kristen Gile, who picked up a start in the second game at the designated player position, drove in Bell from third base to bring the Lions within a run. Gile added three RBIs in the victory. Please see SOFTBALL, page 5B

FREE STATE SOPHOMORE MARGAUX GILL HUGS teammate Madeline Dieker (11) following Dieker’s goal against Junction City. The Firebirds rolled, 9-1, on Tuesday at FSHS.

After Free State High’s soccer team rolled 9-1 over Junction City in a 6A regional playoff game, it was unclear which aspect of the win was sweeter — simply notching the program’s first-ever playoff victory or the dominance the Firebirds displayed in doing so. Either way, it was the best kind of problem for coach Kelly Barah and the Firebirds to have following their resounding victory on Tuesday night at FSHS. “I think just getting the win is probably better,” Barah said. “Because the girls have worked so hard … from conditioning to two-a-days, everything. So to see it all come down to this victory, and with the style of play that we’ve been preaching all

a l o n g i s j u s t b e a ut i f u l to watch.” “It’s amazing,” Abbey Casady said. “We all just can’t stop smiling.” Barely more than a minute into the game, Maddie Dieker put the Firebirds (10-6-1) on top, 1-0, but the post-goal celebration was temporarily put on hold. “Play like it’s zero-zero, white,” one FSHS player bellowed to her teammates. Point taken. The Firebirds relentlessly attacked for the entire first half, crisply executing passes and possessing the ball while barely allowing Junction City (6-10-1) to get past midfield. Abbey Casady netted the second goal for FSHS halfway into the period, and only a minute later, Rylee Fuerst banged home a loose ball to give FSHS a commanding 3-0 lead.

And only a few minutes into the second half, Chelsea Casady found a wide-open Kylee Loneker, who buried a shot past the Blue Jays’ keeper Erika Goodwin. Loneker scored again only two minutes later, barely redirecting a perfect cross from Abbey Casady with a header, which clanged off the far post and in. “The past few weeks we’ve had really good practice sessions where the girls really are executing and going back to the fundamentals in the passing game,” Barah said. “It really showed tonight, and I hope we keep rolling like this.” FSHS’s offensive display was far from finished. Margaux Gill soon found Hillary Yoder on a run, who streaked alone into the box and drilled one past GoodPlease see SOCCER, page 5B

Nowitzki torches OKC; Mavs take Game 1 D A L L A S (AP ) — Dirk Nowitzki showed no rust from a long layoff, making 10 of his first 11 shots and an NBA playoff-record 24 straight free throws on the way to 48 points, leading the Dallas Mavericks to a 121-112 victory over the Oklahoma City Thunder in Game 1 of the Western Conference finals on Tuesday night. Jason Terry scored 24 points and J.J. Barea added 21 points as the Mavericks picked up where they left off in a sweep of the Lakers nine days before. They broke open a tight game with a 13-0 run late in the second quarter and never trailed again, stretching their franchise-record postseason winning streak to seven games. Game 2 is Thursday night in Dallas, where the Mavs are 6-0 this postseason. The Thunder — fresh off a seven-game series against Memphis that included a total of four overtimes — led by nine early in the second quarter, then went 6:28 between baskets. They missed 10 shots during that drought and were down by 11 when it ended. They eventually trailed by 16 before clawing within five points with 3:42 left, and six with 48.5 seconds to play. Kevin Durant followed his 39 points in Game 7 of the previous round by scoring 40. While Nowitzki dominated, Durant’s scoring binge merely helped his team stay close.

Technicals—Oklahoma City Coach Brooks, Perkins, Oklahoma City defensive three second 2, Dallas Coach Carlisle, Chandler, Terry. A—20,911 (19,200).

The Thunder’s big problem, though, was Nowitzki. Six guys tried stopping him, and the big German either shot over them or put them in foul trouble. He made 13 free throws in the third quarter alone. And when Oklahoma City sent a second defender at him, Nowitzki usually passed to the teammate left open. Nowitzki finished 12-of-15 and a perfect 24-of-24 at the line. It was the most by anyone this postseason and two points shy of his most ever in a playoff game. He also had six rebounds, four assists and four blocks. On the series when Nowitzki missed for the first time, a teammate got the ball back to him, and he found Tyson Chandler for two.

“I was really looking to shoot early and was able to get my rhythm after the first couple of shots,” Nowitzki said. “I kept attacking and my teammates kept feeding me and feeding me and I was able to take advantage over some smaller players.” The Thunder came into the series unsure how it would handle Nowitzki because their usual defender, Jeff Green, was traded in February. Serge Ibaka went at him first, then got two quick fouls, turning things over to Nick Collison. Kendrick Perkins, Durant, Thabo Sefolosha and James Harden all took turns with little success. When things tightened up in the final minutes, Nowitzki helped protect Dallas’ lead with two jumpers over the outstretched arms of 6-foot-10 Serge Ibaka, and an assist on a three-pointer by Terry with 28.9 seconds left. Chants of “M-V-P!” echoed almost every time he went to the foul line in the fourth quarter. Oklahoma City coach Scott Brooks is going to have to figure something out quick. The good news for Brooks is that his youngsters kept scrapping all the way to the end. Down a lot on the road to a well-rested veteran team, they could have considered this game a lost cause and saved energy for the next game. “It was closer than we wanted in the fourth quarter, but we came through,” Nowitzki said.

Cavs win NBA lottery, top pick SECAUCUS, N.J. (AP) — The Cleveland Cavaliers got a huge jump on their post-LeBron James rebuilding process Tuesday night, winning the lottery and the No. 1 selection in next month’s NBA Draft. Turning a pick they acquired from the Los Angeles Clippers into the No. 1 selection, the Cavs will pick first for the first time since 2003, when they drafted James out of high school. He left for Miami last summer and the Cavs tumbled to the second-worst record in the league, but they will have two top-four picks next month as they try to back owner Dan Gilbert's boast that they would win a title before James. They already had their own pick and acquired another at the trade deadline from the Clippers in the deal for Baron Davis. Gilbert sent his son and “hero,” 14-yearold Nick Gilbert, to the podium and the kid came up with a stunning victory, as the Clippers’ pick, originally No. 8, had only a 2.8 percent chance of landing at the top. Nick Gilbert was born with Neurofibromatosis (NF), a nerve disorder that causes tumors to grow anywhere in the body at any time. He was wearing black-rimmed glasses and a bow tie and looked serious until he showed a keen sense of humor in a television interview. His father called him his “hero” for the way he has fought the disease. “It’s sort of Nick fashion. He has been doing it his whole life to some degree. I’m proud of him. I proud of the way he carried himself and I am very excited for the fans of Cleveland, Ohio, who have been through a very, very rough year,” Dan Gilbert said. “They deserve it more than anybody.” Minnesota will select second and Utah turned New Jersey’s pick from the Deron Williams trade into the No. 3 selection. The Timberwolves continued their unbelievable lottery losing streak, falling to 0-for-14 and dropping for the eighth time. They had a 25 percent chance of winning after finishing with a league-worst 17-65 record. The Cavs will likely decide between point guard Kyrie Irving of Duke or Arizona forward Derrick Williams as the top pick. With the NBA down to its final four teams, 14 at the bottom of the standings made the trip to NBA Entertainment studios in northern New Jersey for what Commissioner David Stern called the league’s “annual rite of renewal.” “There are a lot of teams who think they are one player away and this may be the player,” Stern said during a news conference before the lottery. And it was an important year to finish near the top. In part because of the league’s uncertain labor situation, the draft is not considered particularly deep. North Carolina’s Harrison Barnes and Ohio State’s Jared Sullinger were among the expected lottery picks who decided to return to school. Toronto and Washington dropped to Nos. 5 and 6 and Sacramento, represented by Mayor Kevin Johnson, fell to No. 7.

Hall of Famer Harmon Killebrew dies of cancer MINNEAPOLIS — Harmon Killebrew, the affable, big-swinging Hall of Famer whose tapemeasure home runs made him the cornerstone of the Minnesota Twins and perhaps the most popular player in the team’s 51-year history, died Tuesday after battling esophageal cancer. He was 74. The Twins said Killebrew passed away peacefully at his home in Scottsdale, Killebrew Ariz., with his wife, Nita, and their family at his side. He announced his diagnosis just six months ago, and last week Killebrew said he was settling in for the final days of his life after doctors deemed the “awful disease” incurable. Killebrew is 11th on baseball’s all-time home run list after an exceptional 22-year career. His eight seasons with 40 or more homers still is tied for second in league history to Babe Ruth, and his uppercut swing formed the silhouette that inspired Major League Baseball’s official logo. At Target Field, where the video board showed a picture of Killebrew, members of the Twins’ ground crew slowly lifted home plate and slipped under it a plastic-encased, blackand-white photo of Killebrew winding up for a swing. The picture, believed to be from the 1960s, will stay beneath the plate the rest of the season. Twins catcher Joe Mauer said he felt like he had lost a family member. “He has treated me like one of his own,” Mauer said in a statement issued by the team. “It’s hard to put into words what Harmon has meant to me. He first welcomed me into the Twins family as an 18-year-old kid and has continued to influence my life in many ways. He is someone I will never forget and will always treasure the time we spent together.” Former Twins pitcher Jack Morris, who grew up in Minnesota watching Killebrew play, was choked up and teary-eyed at a news conference to talk about the slugger’s death. “I lost a hero today,” Morris said.

NFL Talks end without agreement MINNEAPOLIS — The NFL and its locked-out players wrapped up another round of courtordered mediation Tuesday without any signs of a new agreement and the clock ticking on the 2011 season. Officials and attorneys for both sides said they will return for more closed-door talks with U.S. Magistrate Judge Arthur Boylan on June 7, four days after a key appeals court hearing in St. Louis on the legality of the lockout.

COLLEGE FOOTBALL Fiesta Bowl seeks cash return PHOENIX — The Fiesta Bowl is seeking the return of thousands of dollars in campaign contributions made to U.S. Sens. John McCain and Jon Kyl and other Arizona politicians, according to documents obtained Tuesday by The Associated Press.

The contributions were made by bowl employees and their families that the bowl then reimbursed between 2000 and 2009. In all, the bowl wants $48,225.17 returned.

Latest Hall class loaded on D-line NEW YORK — The latest class of College Football Hall of Famers is loaded on the defensive line. Defensive tackles Marty Lyons of Alabama, Russell Maryland of Miami, Doug English of Texas and Rob Waldrop of Arizona were among the 14 players chosen for induction. Also headed for the Hall are Deion Sanders, who turned cornerback into a glamour position at Florida State from 1985-88, and former Michigan coach Lloyd Carr, who won 75 percent of his games and the 1997 national championship in 13 seasons leading the Wolverines.

Next Drew takes over at Valpo VALPARAISO, IND. — Valparaiso is keeping its basketball coaches all in the family. Longtime Crusaders coach Homer Drew announced Tuesday that he was retiring for a second time and again turning over the reins to one of his sons.

NHL Boogaard family asks for donations NEW YORK — The family of Derek Boogaard, the New York Rangers forward who died last week in Minnesota, is asking for donations to be made to Defending the Blue Line in his memory, in lieu of flowers. The Rangers said Tuesday that the family “would like to see Derek’s legacy live on by supporting military kids and the game he loved.” Defending the Blue Line is a nonprofit organization created by soldiers with the spirit of keeping hockey alive for the children of the nation’s military heroes. The 28-year-old Boogaard was found dead Friday at his Minneapolis apartment. A cause of death has not yet been determined.

Men’s hoops, CC teams score perfect on APR being a perennial Final Four contender, was one of three KU programs (along with men’s and women’s cross country) to hold down a perfect score in the multiyear category, which tracks a team’s academic progress from the past four seasons, in this case, 2006-07 through 2009-10. “It’s just a measure of how much men’s basketball and these other staffs pay attention and concentrate and prioritize these factors,” associate athletic director Jim Marchiony said. “We aim to be the best on the field and in the classroom and, in that case, we are.” Many have wondered whether Josh Selby’s departure from the men’s basketball program — the freshman

guard declared for the NBA Draft last month — would hurt the team’s academic status. KU’s associate athletic director for student support, Paul Buskirk, said the NCAA, which introduced the APR system in 2003-04 as a way to enhance each institution’s measure of academic success, provides universities with a list of scenarios that are exempt from harming the score. Medical hardship and extreme family circumstances are a couple of things on the list and advancing to play professional sports is another. The APR numbers, which are based on a 50 percent retention and 50 percent eligibility scale, are not impacted negatively when a student-

Alvamar that keep the players’ swings in shape during the winter, gives Kansas an advantage it didn’t used to have. “We were hitting balls in the indoor football facility when I was here,” he said. “And to be able to come over here and play this course, and to be able to play Alvamar. With Kansas City being so close and Topeka having some good golf courses and they allow the Kansas team to come out. I think that’s huge. Some of these programs you’re kind of in the middle of nowhere and you’re kind of stuck. You don’t have anywhere to go. You have to stay at the same place all the time.” The program won’t improve greatly overnight, but Woodland’s bullish on its chances for steady growth. “You’ve got a great school and I don’t think there’s a better college town than this,” he said. “Obviously, it’s a great basketball school. It’s fun. It’s a great town. From that standpoint, I think it recruits itself, but obviously, we’ve got to put up the numbers to get the top kids in the country to realize what’s going on and realize they need to come here.” The Kansas climate, not as ideally suited for golf as many schools, toughened Woodland for the brutal golf tests he has negotiated so well this spring. “The wind’s always blowing,” he said. “I think that’s an advantage when you get out there. You know how to play in tough conditions. You know it’s not going to be easy out there. Obviously, Tom Watson has done well with it and we’re all trying to follow in his footsteps.” The footsteps of two-time Kansas Amateur champion Woodland grow louder by the week, which will grow golf throughout the state, especially at KU.

Already known for its place at the top of the school’s athletic mountain, the Kansas University men’s basketball program continues to carry the torch for the university’s academic side of things, as well. Tuesday morning, the NCAA and KU released the results of the most recent Academic Progress Rate numbers and they revealed that head coach Bill Self ’s squad was one of six programs at KU that delivered a perfect APR score of 1,000 during the 2009-10 school year. What’s more, the men’s basketball program, known for



Garrett did join the KU program as a walk-on. However Daniels returned to IMG to complete his senior year. He’s said very little during the recruiting process. Others, however, have gushed about his game. “DeAndre Daniels can fill it up from the outside and with his size, can also score down low,” analyst Shay Wildeboor said Tuesday. “He is a proven three-point shooter, who has aspirations of playing the 3 (small forward), but he’s a 3-4 (power forward) right now. He’d be a huge addition — an immediate impact player at KU.” Lacey: Lacey, who has a final list of KU, Kentucky, Alabama and Auburn, made a campus visit to KU on May 7-9. The long-range bomber, who averaged 31 points a game his senior season, was considered a heavy Alabama lean, until his stock soared second semester. Lacey’s dad, William Pride, told the Huntsville Times on Tuesday that his son is “just confused. He got to see these universities with big-time basketball, and it just kind of blew him away. This is lifechanging, and he’s just really confused.”

On Tuesday night, Pride said his son was in good spirits while working on his homework and said the news conference would be held as scheduled. Lacey would provide instant offense to KU’s team. “We have him listed as the No. 5 shooter in high school basketball,” Wildeboor said. “He can fill it up. He can stretch a defense and score in a lot of ways.” Traylor: Traylor, who has a final list of KU, Oklahoma State, Indiana and Texas Tech, visited KU on April 22-24, a week after visiting OSU. Traylor, who attended Chicago’s Julian High until his senior year, would add some depth to KU’s front line. “He rebounds the ball extremely well,” Wildeboor said. “He is a hustle guy. He reminds me of Darnell Jackson in that he has a motor that never stops. He’ll fight for rebounds and loose balls and steal you extra possessions.” The Jayhawks, who have four scholarships left to give, have already inked guards Ben McLemore and Naadir Tharpe and forward Braeden Anderson. ●

Not interested now: KU coach Bill Self was asked about possibly coaching in the NBA someday in an interview Tuesday with 610 sports radio.

“I think I’ve got a better job than two-thirds of the NBA jobs right where I’m at, at Kansas. I don’t see myself being a pro guy,” Self said. “I don’t want to say never, but right now, I feel I’m a college guy. I’ve got such a great gig. The last two years, we’ve been good. We’ve been real good, but we haven’t done it (won NCAA title). There’s something inside, ‘We’ve got to do it again.’ That’s my total motivation right now.” Of college coaches moving to the NBA, Self said: “I think it’s a great game and I think fans miss it sometimes when they think there’s not as much strategy, because I think there’s probably more strategy in an NBA game than there ever would be in a college game because they have a short clock. You’ve got to get a shot every 24 instead of 35 seconds. “It is intriguing for many, but, to me, I feel like there’s several good NBA jobs out there and there are many that aren’t great NBA jobs. You wonder why college coaches aren’t as successful when they go, well they take over bad jobs. If a college coach was to take over the (Miami) Heat right now, there is a chance he could win. Or if a college coach was to take over the (Chicago) Bulls right now, there’s a chance he could win, but college coaches don’t get that.”

athlete leaves an institution because of one of those factors. Therefore, as long as Selby remained eligible in his classes while enrolled at KU, which, according to Buskirk and Self, he did, then the men’s basketball program’s APR number would not suffer because of his departure. “The NCAA will only forgive that loss if, had the student-athlete stayed at the institution, he would’ve been eligible to compete,” Buskirk said. “That’s where coach Self has been extraordinarily consistent in his message to the students of, ‘We’ll support you in what you want to do, but you will take care of business while you’re here.’ And Josh has taken care of business while he’s been here.”

BRIEFLY Seabury soccer falls BONNER SPRINGS — Seabury Academy’s girls soccer team fell to Bonner Springs, 4-2, on Tuesday in a regional playoff game. Jordan Lutz and Lexi Brady scored, while Hannah Spomer had an assist for Seabury. Goalkeeper Raquel Dominguez had at least 15 saves. Seabury finished the season with a 3-3 record.

KU women to travel to Italy this summer The Kansas University women’s basketball team will spend 10 days playing games in and traveling around Italy this summer. The trip, which will be Aug. 9-19, will give the team an opportunity to play against competitive international teams while providing an incredible cultural experience. “This trip is valuable not only from a basketball standpoint, but from a team-bonding and educational perspective as well,” said KU coach Bonnie Henrickson. “This is a tremendous opportunity to get the team together and train and get to know each other a lot better before the season starts. With the new rule change, we are now allowed to take our incoming freshmen on the tour, which is beneficial in their transition to playing at the college level.”

KU track moves up Both of Kansas University’s track and field teams jumped several spots in this week’s U.S. Track and Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) rankings that were released Tuesday. The KU women made a significant move up the poll from No. 25 last week to No. 18 this week, while the Jayhawk men elevated two spots from No. 17 last week to No. 15 this week.

In addition to cross country and men’s basketball holding down perfect fouryear scores, three other programs, women’s basketball, softball and women’s tennis, registered a perfect score during the 2009-10 school year. “It’s just a reflection of how hard the coaches work,” Marchiony said. “It’s the coaches, it’s the kids themselves, it’s the academic counselors, it’s the faculty and it’s the tutors. Everybody shares in this success.” Buskirk said the easiest way to make sense of the APR system is by looking at it as a batting average. A score of 1,000 represents perfect performance and the degrees of success trickle down from there.

According to the NCAA, a score of 925 or higher puts a program in good standing. The latest multiyear numbers illustrate that all 18 athletic programs at KU are well above the 925 mark. In fact, the program with the number nearest to 925 was men’s outdoor track, which had a multiyear score of 940. Of the 36 APR scores handed out this year — 18 for the multiyear score and 18 for the 2009-10 school year — only two fell below 925. Men’s indoor track earned a 924 during the 200910 year and men’s outdoor track earned a 917 during the same period. However, both had multiyear scores above 925. “The short version is we are in great shape,” Buskirk said.

Jelniker leaving KU women’s team J-W Staff Reports

Freshman guard Brooke Jelniker has left the Kansas women’s basketball program and will be transferring to the University of San Diego. The 6-foot-1 Jelniker, from Thunder Ridge High School in Highlands Ranch, Colo., played in 17 games for KU last season, averaging 1.1 points and 1.4 rebounds. “I have enjoyed the KU campus and the Lawrence community, but have decided that the KU women’s basketball program was not right for me as a person or a player,” Jelniker said. “I have chosen to continue to play basketball at the University of San Diego.

I look forward to my time at USD and feel that I have found the right home for me as a student athlete.” After being given her transfer release on April 1, Jelniker decided on San Diego after considering Colorado State and Gonzaga. “Brooke is an amazing athlete and a very versatile basketball player,” San Diego coach Cindy Fisher said. “She will make us better everyday in practice during her redshirt year, and at the same time, improve her game and take it to another level. Brooke is an incredible student and a person of high character and we can’t wait for her to join our USD family.”

Kansas softball’s Maggie Hull honored J-W Staff Reports

Kansas softball’s Maggie Hull was named to the All-Big 12 second team on Tuesday. The teams were voted on by the league’s coaches, who were not allowed to vote for their own players. The Free State graduate led the Jayhawks with a .346 batting average this season, while her 49 RBIs were the secondmost in KU history. She batted in 19 runs during Big 12 Conference play to lead the league. Hull also ranked in the

KU baseball honored Six Kansas University baseball players were named to academic All-Big 12 teams, which were announced Tuesday. Seniors Casey Lytle and T.J. Walz, junior Zac Elgie and sophomores Jake Marasco and Tanner Poppe were all selected to the first team, while junior Jordan Jakubov earned second team honors.

“More than Shirts”

top 10 of KU’s single-season record lists for doubles (14— tied for sixth) and slugging percentage (.611—fifth). Hull, a sophomore outfielder who started all 53 games, hit four grand slams for the Jayhawks in 2011 , which tied a national high. She also hit two game-winning home runs — versus Georgia Tech on March 19 and again the next day at Coastal Carolina. Kansas finished its 2011 season with a 31-22 overall record.

Orioles’ game at Red Sox washed out BOSTON — Baltimore’s game at Boston has been postponed because of rain. The Red Sox made the announcement shortly before the game was scheduled to start as rain created puddles on the tarp covering the infield. Temperatures were in the high 40s and dropping. No makeup date was immediately announced. White Sox 4, Rangers 3 C HICAGO — Gordon Beckham scampered home on Cody Eppley’s wild pitch in the eighth inning. Beckham began the inning with a walk and made it all the way to third on pinch-hitter Dallas McPherson’s single to center. McPherson, who was promoted when Mark Teahen went on the disabled list earlier in the day, picked up his first hit since Sept. 10, 2008, for Florida at Philadelphia. Eppley (1-1) then bounced his f irst pitch to Alexei Ramirez, and Beckham rushed home to give Chicago a 4-3 lead. Texas

Yankees 6, Rays 2 ST. PETERSBURG, FLA. — Alex Rodriguez homered twice, Jorge Posada had two hits and New York stopped a six-game losing streak. With Yankees managing general partner Hal Steinbrenner in attendance, New York ended its longest skid since dropping seven in a row from April 20-27, 2007. Posada doubled and singled while batting seventh as the designated hitter. It was his first start since he pulled himself out of the lineup Saturday soon after he was set to bat ninth.

Blue Jays-Tigers rained out D E T R O I T — The game between Toronto and Detroit was postponed because of rain. The game never started and was called after a wait of nearly two hours. Toronto and Detroit will make it up with a night game on June 27. Twins 2, Mariners 1 SEATTLE — Francisco Liriano outdueled Felix Hernandez and Minnesota ended a nine-game losing streak with a victory over Seattle. Liriano (3-5), who threw a no-hitter May 3 at the Chicago White Sox, was nearly as stingy. He allowed three singles, walked one and had a season-high nine strikeouts. Matt Capps got the final three outs for his sixth save in eight opportunities. Minnesota

Reds 7, Cubs 5 CINCINNATI — Reliever Kerry Wood’s throwing error let two runs score and Chris Heisey followed with a tiebreaking sacrifice fly in the eighth inning that sent Cincinnati over the sloppy Chicago Cubs on a wet night. The Cubs self-destructed with four errors in a steady rain. All seven of Cincinnati’s runs were unearned. Wood (1-3) threw wide of third while trying to get a forceout on Ryan Hanigan’s sacrifice bunt, allowing the catcher to go all the way to third base while the tying runs scored. Heisey put the Reds ahead and Joey Votto added an RBI double. The Reds won for the 11th time in 13 games, sweeping the two-game series.

Pirates-Nationals postponed because of rain W A S H I N G T O N — Washington’s game against Pittsburgh has been postponed by rain. The Nationals announced the postponement more than three hours before Tuesday’s scheduled first pitch. The team said a makeup date will be announced in the coming days. Tuesday’s game was supposed to be the second of a two-game series. Washington is scheduled to play at New York today, while Pittsburgh is at Cincinnati. Cardinals 2, Phillies 1 ST. LOUIS — Lance Berkman lined a bases-loaded single over a drawn-in outfield with one out in the ninth inning, giving St. Louis a victory over a run-starved Philadelphia team. Jaime Garcia allowed five hits and an unearned run in eight innings for the Cardinals, but gave up a 1-0 lead in the eighth — enabled when second baseman Tyler Greene dropped Jimmy Rollins’ routine pop fly with one out. Rollins eventually scored on a sacrifice fly by Placido Polanco. Fernando Salas (2-0) had a s t r i ke o u t i n a p e rfe c t ninth. The Phillies’ Roy Oswalt worked five efficient innings in his first start off the 15-day disabled list for lower back inflammation. Danys Baez (12) took the loss in relief.

Baseball teams ready to go By Clark Goble Journal-World Sports Writer

To rejuvenate his baseball team leading up to its regional semifinal this afternoon, Lawrence High coach Brad Stoll allowed players from past teams to offer some words of wisdom in practices over the last week. Members of the 2009 state championship team and 2008 regional championship team talked about their experiences for the current batch of Lions. “The energy level has been rekindled, I think,” Stoll said. The fifth-seeded Lions (119) take on fourth-seeded Washburn Rural (13-7) at 2 p.m. today in Manhattan. Free State (15-5), the second seed, will host seventh-seeded Junction City (7-13) at 4:30 p.m. today at FSHS. If either team wins, they will advance to the regional

championship for the right to go to the state tournament. The Lions will send Alex Laughlin to the mound in the first game. Garrett Cleavinger will take the ball if the Lions make it to the championship. Both pitchers were a part of the Lions’ gut-wrenching regional championship loss to Manhattan last season. “They’re both hungry, and they want a little redemption from what happened last year,” Stoll said. Free State coach Mike Hill has tabbed the combination of J.D. Prochaska and Colin Toalson for the first game. Hill said the Firebirds would pitch whomever they need to for the second game. He was pleased with the way the Firebirds were able to end the season, sweeping Lawrence High in their final two games. “We’ve looked good over

LHS falls Softball

the past week and a half, not just during games, but in practice, which is indicative of our improvement,” Hill said. Hill is a little worried about the one-week layoff from games, but he realizes that every other team has to deal with a similar situation heading into the single-elimination postseason. “It’s one-and-done, and if you don’t play well, you’re out,” Hill said. “In the end, we have to worry about ourselves and take care of what we can control.” Stoll said his team is ready for its matchup with the Junior Blues. “I think we’re a better team,” Stoll said. “I think we’re the best team in the regional. We feel confident about our matchup.” If the city schools are able to advance, the championship games will start at 7 p.m.

State tournament play starts May 27 at Arrocha Ballpark.

J-W Staff Reports


T O P E K A — The Lawrence High girls soccer team was shut out by Washburn Rural, 2-0, on Tuesday in a Class 6A regional first-round game. LHS finished the season with a 4-13 record.

“All I have to say is thank God that (Gile) was in the lineup,” Stogsdill said. Topeka High responded yet again, tallying two runs in the bottom of the fifth after a single with a runner on first bounced by centerf ielder Bailie Richards and trickled to the wall. Both runners scored on the play, giving Topeka High a 10-7 lead. And then, the Lions struck the final blow. With two runners on, Bell lifted a pitch high into centerfield and looped wide around first base. It fell for a hit, and Bell sprinted all the way home for a three-run, inside-thepark home run. “I was not stopping even if (Stogsdill) told me to,” Bell said. “I just tried to run as fast as I could.” Senior Lauren Massey, who pitched all 14 innings for the Lions on Tuesday, put the Lions ahead with a two-out RBI double, and Gile drove Massey in with a double. Topeka High earned baserunners in the sixth and seventh innings, but the Lions held them off for a wild victory. “That was the craziest Lawrence High 4, Free State 2 001 001 0 —291 game I’ve ever played in,” Bell FLarewereSntacteeHigh 102 010 X —472 said.

win — who was peppered with shots all night, but still managed to make 18 saves. Though the game was well in hand, the Firebirds continued to push the pace and the goals followed. Freshman Alexa HarmonThomas — returning to the field after sitting out the past few games with an injury — used a few nifty moves to juke around defenders and netted three goals in less than eight minutes to balloon the lead to 9-0. With such a strong attack and defense in front of her, Elena Auer only needed to make a few saves for FSHS, though the Blue Jays scored their only goal with 90-seconds left after a weird hop left Jamee Gray alone in the box. The Firebirds, whose 10 wins mark the highest total in program history, will head to Manhattan to face No. 1 seed Manhattan at 6 p.m. Thursday. “We’re confident, but Barah says we’re a still blue collar team,” Loneker said. “We come out and play hard every single time. We don’t think of ourselves as the top dogs, we’re still the underdogs. We want to show people that we are something to believe in.”

Lawrence 4, Free State 2 In the regional semifinal, the Firebirds outhit the Lions, 9-7, but simply couldn’t convert run-scoring opportunities. FSHS coach Lee Ice said that was partly his team’s fault, but also a product of the Lions’ senior leadership and relentless attitude. “You gotta respect them,” Ice said. “They’re something to deal with.” The Lions scored a run in the first inning to take an early lead, but the Firebirds’ Christy Wagner scored a run on an error in the third inning to tie the game. Massey and Kasey Waite picked up RBIs in the bottom of the third, and the Lions added a run in the fifth for a 4-1 lead. Freshman Remington Samuels drove in freshman Whitney Rothwell for the Firebirds’ second run, but a rally just wasn’t to be. Most of the Firebirds (9-12) return next season, so Ice is hopeful that his players use the loss as motivation to work hard in the offseason. “I don’t know what I’m going to do tomorrow,” Ice said.

Study places beverages into six levels for optimal nutrition Q:

Cooking Q&A

With so many choices available today — and that list continues to grow at a rapid rate — it’s easy to be confused. Because of this, a group of six nutrition experts from across the United States formed an independent Beverage Guidance Panel. They reviewed the evidence of beverages and health and ranked categories of beverages into six levels, based on caloric content, contribution to intake of energy and essential nutrients, and evidence for positive and negative effects on health. In the March 2006 issue of the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, the group published its recommendations using a six-level pitcher to illustrate them. The panel suggests getting less than 10 percent of our daily calories from beverages. Here is a description of each level: Level 1 — Water: At least half your daily fluid intake should come from water. The total amount of water needed depends on how much you eat, what the weather is and how active you are. Water provides everything the body needs to restore fluids lost through metabolism, breathing,

sweating and the removal of waste. It’s the perfect beverage for quenching thirst and rehydrating your system. Level 2 — Tea and coffee: About one-third can come from unsweetened coffee or tea. These calorie-free beverages are brimming with antioxidants, flavonoids and other biologically active substances that may be good for health. Up to three or four cups of coffee or tea a day appear to be fine. Green tea, especially the strong variety, has received attention for its potential role in protecting against heart disease, while coffee may help protect against type 2 diabetes. More research on the health benefits of tea and coffee is needed, but one thing is for certain — the addition of cream, sugar, whipped cream and flavorings can turn coffee or tea from a healthful beverage into a not-so-healthful one. If you choose to pass on coffee or tea, select water instead. For pregnant women, the panel states that it is prudent to limit caffeinated beverages to one cup per day. Level 3 — Low-fat and skim milk and soy beverages: Low-fat milk can make up another 20 percent, or about two 8-ounce glasses per day. Fortified soy milk is a good alternative source of calcium and vitamin D for those who prefer not to drink cow’s milk. Both are also good


To me, the joy of this fish taco is to get all those good Caribbean flavors without glopping it up with a bunch of heavy sauce or cheese.”

There are so many beverages out on the market today, I’m confused about which ones are the best ones to choose for our health. Can you help?

sources of protein and other essential micronutrients. Low-fat milk, sold as 1 percent or 1.5 percent milk, or skim milk, which is virtually fat-free, are the best choices because they contain much less saturated fat than reduced-fat milk or whole milk, which contain 2 percent and 4 percent milk fat, respectively. Level 4 — Noncalorically sweetened beverages: Ideally, the recommendation is zero “diet” drinks made with artificial sweeteners, but no more than one to two cups (8 to 16 ounces) a day. Socalled diet sodas and other diet drinks are sweetened with calorie-free artificial sweeteners such as aspartame, saccharin, acesulfame potassium, sucralose, stevia or neotame. Although they are lower in calories than sugar-sweetened soft drinks, there is a possibility that they may contribute to weight gain. Therefore, they should not be considered an alternative to water and should be enjoyed as an


and butter is. Plus, it made a really stinking good batter. Frothy beer equals good batter. The goal with the batter is to get it fairly thin and not lumpy, so keep adding beer in small increments and stirring with a fork until it’s about the consistency of pancake batter. I gave the fish one last sprinkle with kosher salt, then dropped the hunks in the batter. Next, I heated some canola in a saucepan. You need enough oil that your fish will be completely covered. If you have a deep-fat fryer, of course, this is a good application for it, but I have no such appliance. I probably poured two or three cups of oil into that pan and turned it on high. If you have a thermometer, stick it in there. Between 350 and 400 degrees is your ideal temperature. Remember that once you plop the first fish in there your oil will cool significantly. With a fork, I lifted (don’t stab) pieces of fish from the

batter and dropped them in the hot oil. DO IT CAREFULLY. About six pieces at a time seemed to be the right number. I let them cook for about 30 seconds before I used a slotted spoon to turn them over and ensure even browning and cooking. If your oil is hot, the fish should only take about two minutes at most to cook. When the batter is golden, remove to a plate lined with paper towels and do the next batch. From there, it’s a matter of assembly and taste. I chopped up a little bit of serrano pepper, an avocado, some red onion and a tomato. To me, the joy of this fish taco is to get all those good Caribbean flavors without glopping it up with a bunch of heavy sauce or cheese. The real show-stopper of this meal was the Dynamite Sauce, which I spread on the bottom of a warmed flour tortilla, and then built the taco up from there. On the fish, I plopped a little of the slaw, some tomato, serrano pepper,

onion and avocado. But really, the choices are limitless. I thought of cutting some fresh corn off the cob, or chopping up a mango, but I was getting out of control. Mr. Meat and Potatoes likes things hotter than I do, so he added pickled jalapenos and some extra Chiliracha to the top of his. Next time, though, I think I’ll go for a little sweet heat with some pineapple relish and pickled jalapenos. The world is my fish taco, so to speak. I have to tell you, I think I won this one. Mr. Meat and Potatoes was duly impressed with this creation, and we might be saying goodbye to ground beef, at least some of the time. He gave it rave reviews, and I’ll admit it was my favorite meal I’ve made in a good long while. I’m still thinking about it today — and kicking myself that I didn’t bring some leftovers for lunch. — Read more of Megan Stuke’s Flying Fork at

Think outside the box for rice pilaf By J.M. Hirsch

Salt, to taste 2 scallions, finely chopped

Associated Press Writer

Most people know rice pilaf as a side dish that comes from a box. But it can be so much more. This simple and speedy recipe for cranberry almond rice pilaf can be on the table in about 25 minutes, only about 10 minutes of which you’ll need to actually do anything. The flavor is so much better than packaged pilafs, and the recipe is totally versatile. Don’t like almonds? Use chopped cashews or pistachios. Dried currants, cherries, golden raisins or sliced dried apricots can sub in for the cranberries. And while we keep the seasonings simple with just a bit of cinnamon, cumin and black pepper, feel free to take this in any direction you like (curry powder wouldn’t be a bad way to go). To make a meal of this, serve it topped with grilled herbed chicken breasts. Also consider doubling the recipe to allow for leftovers. Then drizzle the chilled leftover pilaf with a bit of vinaigrette, toss with arugula and sliced cherry tomatoes, and call it a salad.

CRANBERRY ALMOND RICE PILAF 1 cup basmati rice 1/4 cup orzo pasta 2 3/4 cups chicken broth 1/3 cup dried cranberries 3 tablespoons butter 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin Ground black pepper 1 medium yellow onion, diced 1/3 cup sliced almonds 1/2 cup grated carrots

In a medium saucepan over high heat, combine the rice, orzo and broth. Bring to a boil, then cover, reduce heat to simmer and cook for 10 minutes. Once the rice has cooked, quickly stir in the cranberries, then cover and set aside for another 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. While the rice and cranberries sit off the heat, prepare the rest of the pilaf. In a large skillet over medium heat, melt the butter. Add the cinnamon, cumin and 1/4 teaspoon black pepper, then cook for 30 seconds. Add the onion and saute until it begins to soften, about 4 minutes. Add the almonds and carrots, then cook for another 2 minutes. Add the rice and cranberries to the skillet, toss well. Season with salt and pepper, then mix in the scallions. Serve immediately. Serves 4. Nutrition information per serving (values are rounded to the nearest whole number): 383 calories; 123 calories from fat (32 percent of total calories); 14 grams fat (6 grams saturated; zero trans fats); 23 milligrams cholesterol; 58 grams carbohydrate; 8 grams protein; 4 grams fiber; 715 milligrams sodium.

occasional treat rather than as a daily beverage. Level 5 — Caloric beverages with some nutrients: This category includes fruit juice, vegetable juice, whole milk, sports drinks, vitaminenhanced waters and alcoholic beverages. Each has its pluses and minuses. Onehundred-percent fruit juice has most of the nutrients of the fruit itself, but it usually delivers more calories. No more than one serving (4 ounces) of 100 percent fruit juice is recommended as part of the daily fruit intake. Fruit smoothies are usually very high in calories, so aren’t recommended as daily beverages. Vegetable juice is a lower-calorie alternative to fruit juice but may contain a lot of sodium. Whole milk is a good source of calcium and vitamin D but has nearly twice the calories as skim milk, as well as a significant source of saturated fat. Sports drinks have fewer calories than soft drinks and

offer small amounts of sodium, chloride and potassium. They aren’t needed by casual athletes or daily walkers. The only people who really need them are endurance athletes who exercise for more than an hour at a time and who sweat a lot. Vitamin-enhanced waters, meanwhile, are not necessary for anyone who takes a daily multivitamin, and adding vitamins to a sugary drink does not make it a healthy choice. Alcohol may have benefits for some but may be hazardous for others. Regardless, no more than one to two alcoholic drinks for men or no more than one for women is recommended. Level 6 — Calorically sweetened beverages: The Beverage Guidance Panel gave its “least recommended” designation to beverages that are sweetened with sugar, high-fructose corn syrup or other high-calorie sweeteners and that have

few other nutrients. These include carbonated and noncarbonated soft drinks, fruit drinks, lemonade and other “ades.” They get the thumbs-down as a daily beverage because they provide so many calories and virtually no other nutrients. Routinely drinking these beverages can lead to weight gain and increase the risk of type-2 diabetes. Fruit smoothies, many flavored coffee and tea drinks, and some so-called energy drinks also fall into this category.

Tips on tofu and more McClatchy Newspapers

The Department of Agriculture’s dietary guidelines now includes soy products and soy beverages, but the recommendation can leave some home cooks quivering like a block of silken tofu at the thought of trying to incorporate soy in daily life. But soy — and what to do with it — has come a long way in the past 20 years. And given the health benefits — the plant protein is low in fat, high in calcium and rich in vitamins — we might want to give it the old college try. No better time than the present, The Soyfoods Association of North America is lobbying. Patricia Greenberg, a nutritionist and chef who serves as spokeswomen for the association, relayed some advice for soy virgins and aficionados alike. Rule No. 1: Just try it. Pick your favorite recipe and try swapping in tofu for half the protein, Greenberg said. Spaghetti and meatballs? Proceed as usual, but sub in “ground round” soy substitute for half the ground meat. Rule No. 2: Think sweet, think soy. If you’re making a pudding, smoothie or milkshake and you want to eliminate some of the milk, yogurt or ice cream, puree some tofu in the blender first and then add the additional ingredients. But choose which style of tofu you use carefully. “When you’re doing sweet desserts, custards, desserts, use silken tofu,” Greenberg said. “It whips up easily and you don’t

Baking is difficult with soy, since soy flour doesn’t rise as much as white or whole wheat flour. Instead, use soymilk or soy sour cream in the milk portion of the recipe. want to have that beany aftertaste.” Rule No. 3: When baking with soy, proceed carefully. Baking is extremely difficult with soy, since soy flour doesn’t rise as much as white or whole wheat flour, she said. Instead, use soymilk or soy sour cream it in the milk portion of the recipe. Rule No. 4: Tofu isn’t the terrible, unappetizing block of soy some think it is. Many people think tofu tastes bad and that its texture is unappealing, Greenberg said. But if you work with it — taking care to season it — you’ll have much more success. Rule No. 5: Kids won’t eat soy. They will if you use the aforementioned rules, with a little twist. Edamame are a great soy snack, but if your kids are averse to eating anything green, try incorporating soy in sneakier ways. Macaroni and cheese can get a protein boost if you swap in soy cheese for half the amount of cheddar called for in the recipe. Substitute soy milk for regular milk in waffles or French toast. Use soy cheese mozzarella sticks stuffed in manicotti shells and covered in marinara for a quick weeknight dinner.

Want to try a little soy this week? Here’s a favorite recipe among folks at the Soyfoods Association.

TOFU & VEGETABLE ENCHILADAS 1/2 package (7ounces) House Foods premium tofu (firm or extra firm), drained 2 tablespoons vegetable oil 1 teaspoon salt or more to taste 1/2 cup white mushrooms, thinly sliced 1/2 cup red onion, thinly sliced 1/2 cup fresh spinach, roughly chopped 8 corn tortillas One 19-ounce can enchilada sauce 1/4 white onion, thinly sliced Queso Fresco for garnish, crumbled

Directions: Wrap tofu in paper towels and press to remove excess water and crumble. Cook mushrooms with 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil in a large skillet medium-high heat until browned. Add red onion and cook until translucent. Add tofu and cook until browned. Add spinach and 1 teaspoon of salt. Stir until spinach wilts. Remove from heat. In a large skillet on medium heat, place tortillas and cook for 1 minute on each side. Put 1/2 cup of mixture on tortilla and roll up to form the enchilada. In a large skillet over medium heat, saute white onion until brown, using 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil. Add enchilada sauce and salt to taste. Bring it to a boil. Dip the enchiladas into the hot sauce and place on a plate. Pour the remaining sauce over enchiladas and top with cheese.

Patricia Wells: A salad with it all ... but fruit By J.M. Hirsch Associated Press Writer

Patricia Wells wants her salads to have it all — fresh seasonal ingredients, bright colors, crunch and a bit of lean protein. Well, almost all. “I generally do not like fruit in my salads, though I do enjoy cantaloupe or watermelon from time to time,” Wells, author of numerous cookbooks, including the just-released “Salad as a Meal” (William Morrow, 2011), said in an email interview. And for Wells, salads don’t just make the meal, they can make it memorable. “Any lobster or crab salad is delightfully memorable. I remember the first time I sampled the combination of crab and avocado at L’Astrance restaurant in Paris. I thought I had died and gone to heaven,” she said. “To this day, it remains one of the greatest salad combinations I know.” For AP’s 20 Salads of Summer series, Wells offered a recipe for ginger-sesame chicken salad with glass noodles. “Ginger, sesame and glass noodles are a classic Asian combination, and the addition of chicken puts it in the healthy, lean protein category for me,” she said. “The bright, intense flavor of a good quality sesame oil makes this an

port Orchards and Winery in Eudora. “I was consistently afraid to go in there because it’s Davenport Orchards and I couldn’t imagine what his wines might be like,” he says with a wry smile about owner and friend Greg Shipe. “He had a dry red wine that was just excellent — as good as anything I had on the West Coast.” Somewhere between finishing that last drop of wine and doing an inventory of his family’s needs, SolbergSelvan bought acreage near Lawrence and began to set up shop. In Kansas, he says he found great soil, a great wine community but few initial resources. “I think we have a doubleedge sword where we are. Kansas used to be a great wine-producing state, and then (with) Prohibition, it pretty much went away. But in recent years, we don’t have a lot of people in the state with vineyard and oenology, or wine-making skills,” he says, demonstrating Kansas’s relative slow start by comparing it with to our much more experienced neighbor, Missouri. “I think (there are) about 25 winery licenses in Kansas right now, Missouri has over 100. And when Prohibition shut down the industry, Missouri came back immediately, where Kansas didn’t do that. So, they’ve had 150 years of virtually continuous experience. We are gaining credibility.” But credibility doesn’t have to mean being expensive — most of BlueJacket’s wine are in the $10 to $12 range. Visitors to BlueJacket Crossing, 1969 N. 1250 Road, or to Lawrence’s On The Rocks, 1818 Mass., can buy that gold medal Vignoles for $13. The silver medal winner goes for $14, and the bronze winner, $18. Heck, you can even get the wine that won a prestigious Jefferson Cup award in 2010 — the Seyval — for $11. Bottle-for-bottle, BlueJacket sells 98 percent of its wine out of its on-farm tasting room because Kansas laws do not allow it to tastetest wines at liquor stores —

an important caveat for a product as oft-disparaged as Kansas wine. (In 2007, Gov. Kathleen Sebelius got in hot water for a joke at a fundraiser in Washington State where she said, “You should be thankful we don’t make wine in Kansas. If you ever see Kansas wine, don’t drink it.”) But Solberg-Selvan is OK with those rules for now because it gives him the joy of watching surprise cross his customers’ faces. “You can stand behind the counter, and do a wine tasting for your customer, and just by the look on their face, you can see whether it’s within their comfort zone or whether they’re pleased with it or whether they share your belief that it’s something special,” he says. “So, when our customers have been drinking this for six or eight months, and then we win the award, they feel it’s part of their success, too.” And they do think it’s something special, too. “I was amazed at the complexity of flavors that Pep was able to achieve in his wines when I first came in for a tasting,” says Simone Cahoj, a Kansas University senior who says she plans to take a case or two of wine with her when she leaves town this summer. “Prior to experiencing Bluejacket wine, I’d only had wine from big companies like E&J Gallo and Yellowtail. While their wine is enjoyable, they are unable to get such the depth of flavors that Bluejacket can. This obviously comes from the fact (that) those companies are in business for quantity. Bluejacket’s biggest advantage is the high quality of their wines.” Even another Northeast Kansas vintner, Rick Hird of Wild Hare Vineyard near Pleasant Grove, was eager to sing BlueJacket’s praises. His favorite? The Jefferson Cupwinning Seyval — though he hasn’t tried the Vignoles yet. “I’ve been to most of the Kansas wineries and many of the Missouri wineries, and it is readily apparent that Bluejacket Crossing makes superior wine,” he says. “Their Seyval is outstanding.” — Staff writer Sarah Henning can be reached at 832-7187.

Grape stomp Vineyard’s prestigious award pairs with state’s growing reputation for wines

By Sarah Henning

A gold medal is vernacular in any competition for the best of the best. And bringing home Douglas County’s most recent golden hardware is Eudora’s BlueJacket Crossing Vineyard and Winery, which won a gold medal for its 2009 vintage of Off-Dry Vignoles at the Finger Lakes International Wine Competition on May 7. Even better, the winery won a medal for each of the three wines it entered, taking home a silver for its 2010 Melody and a bronze for its 2008 Norton. It’s an impressive showing for a 10-year-old vineyard that was competing against winemakers of all stripes in the competition, which included wineries from all 50 states, four provinces in Canada and 18 other countries. Out of the 3,279 entries, only 261 gold medals were awarded. In fact, the only medal the winery didn’t win was the double gold — which was awarded to just 76 wines — a rare award indeed. “The medal for us isn’t for the prize itself,” says owner Pep Solberg-Selvan, “it’s a validation that peo-

Perfect spicy fish tacos mastered at home


ver the years, I have mentioned making fish tacos to Mr. Meat and Potatoes several times. And every time, he says, “I’ll just have ground beef, please.” Fish, he thinks, does not belong in tacos. In response, I have chosen to order fish tacos on every possible occasion. First, because I don’t make them at home for just me, I have to take the opportunity when it arises. Second, to prove to Mr. Meat and Potatoes that they are not only a good idea, but that they are ubiquitous and really not weird at all. But I will say, I’ve had some fish tacos in my day that I regretted.


Celebrate Great Food

Here’s the thing. I just don’t think I like ‘em unless the fish is battered and fried. I know, I know. A fish taco could be a really healthy taco alternative, full of good veggies and light fish, if I’d skip the fryer. But really, I just can’t get into it. I need that crispy texture, that extra kick of flavor. Recently at The Merc, local entrepreneur Michele Berendsen was handing out samples of Fusion World Gourmet sauces, which inspired me. I was going to win over Mr. Meat and Potatoes. I was going to make a fish taco packed with spicy goodness that even the staunchest nay-sayer couldn’t argue with. “If he loves sriracha,” I


a blog by Megan Stuke thought, “he’s gonna love this.” And he loves sushi, which often comes draped in a sauce very similar to the Dynamite Sauce. And I planned to fry the fish in a beer batter. BEER. I mean, what could he argue with? I had four tilapia filets, which I

marinated for several hours in olive oil, lime juice, salt and a mix of equal parts cumin, chili powder and white pepper. I also threw in a dash of red pepper flakes and some of the Chiliracha for firepower. To start, I made a little slaw for topping the tacos. I thinly sliced about 2 cups of cabbage off the head and gave it a rough chop. In a bowl, I poured on a tablespoon of Chiliracha and 2 tablespoons of Mexican crema (which is similar to sour cream, but runnier and less tangy). I threw in a dash of salt and pepper, the zest of one lime and the juice of one lime. Then I put it in the fridge to chill.

Next, I cut the tilapia into large, bite-sized hunks and mixed up the batter. People, beer batter is my new bestie. I had no idea that it would make such a difference, but the beer makes a batter that is light, bubbly, tasty and perfect. I’m never looking back. I just used about a cup and a half of flour, a dash of salt and pepper, and I poured in about 3/4 of a can of Budweiser. I mean, you can use any light-colored pilsner-ish beer you want, but since my husband works for the Bud folks, I really recommend you go with the King of Beers.

Nervous neighbor may need dose of reality Annie’s Mailbox

Dear Annie: I live in a semirural area where people tend to “drop off” unwanted pets. I hope you can find room in your column for my message. To the person who left three small dogs on a hilly road near my home late last fall, here’s what happened: One of the dogs disappeared, probably prey for a coyote. The remaining two survived the winter without starving to death. We often saw them near the road where you left them, watching drugs that made him nauseat- the cars and waiting for you to come back. When we tried to ed and confused. Edwin’s stepson refuses to catch them, they ran off. This help, and his ex-wife lives in another state. If I were to tell Edwin that he’s suffering from severe paranoia, he’d think I joined the ranks of his tormentors. Please tell me how to help. — Want To Make Things Right

Another season concludes for “America’s Next Top Model” (8 p.m., CW), a mainstay of the UPN and then CW network lineup since 2003. A repeat of last week’s elimination (7 p.m.) precedes the big announcement. I’m the last guy to weigh in on fashion issues, but this is the 16th season of “Model,” so I’m presuming there are 15, going on 16, women out there who consider themselves the “Top” of the mannequin market. Is there room for so many superlatives on America’s runways? Have any of the winners really reached the pinnacle of their field? If they have, I didn’t get the memo. Apparently, I’m not entirely clueless. In 2008, Allure magazine pointed out the fact that “Model” hasn’t turned out any supermodels. But that hasn’t stopped the show. It has been picked up for at least two more seasons, and one of them will be an “All-Star” edition, recycling 14 familiar faces from seasons past. If life beyond “Model” isn’t exactly the “Top,” why not return to the cocoon? ● A witness in a rape case is murdered before she can testify on “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit” (9 p.m., NBC). This marks the finale of the 12th season of the only drama NBC has still capable of landing in the top 40. ● A familiar face returns on the sixthseason finale of “Criminal Minds” (8 p.m., CBS). Not to give away too much (or more than the network has already revealed): It’s J.J. (A.J. Cook). ● As a firm believer that the anticipation of Christmas Eve always outshines the anticlimax of the Big Day, I’ve always preferred the second-to-last episode of “American Idol” (7 p.m., Fox) to the overstuffed and overlong finale. Things boil down to the country throwback Scotty McCreery, teen talent Lauren Alaina and the soulful if thin-skinned Haley Reinhart. I think Alaina will go home tonight, but not before allowing the hair and makeup people to transform the 16-year-old into a middle-aged hotel lounge singer one final time. I’m not alone in thinking this is McCreery’s race to lose. And the singer showed a trace of overconfidence last week, rolling his eyes during a throwaway performance of the Coaster’s “Young Blood,” a song requiring multiple voices that did little to showcase his singular talent. For her part, Reinhart made the most of Jennifer Lopez and Randy Jackson’s brief spasm of criticism. Were they showing “tough love” or just being “mean”? For his part, Steven Tyler used Reinhart as a verb, proving that the old rocker has a few synapses firing yet.

Tonight’s other highlights ● Jay tries to save face on “Modern Family” (8 p.m., ABC). ● Time for snow and a friendly rivalry on “MythBusters” (8 p.m., Discovery). ● Cameron finds himself back on campus on the series finale of the just-canceled “Breaking In” (8:30 p.m., Fox). ● A sicko mutilates his victim’s faces on “Criminal Minds: Suspect Behavior” (9 p.m., CBS). ● “Filthy Cities” (9 p.m., Discovery) sets out to prove that revolutionary had more than blood flowing in the streets.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) ★★★★ You wake up ready to pursue a particular goal or project. A serious conversation with a relative or neighbor might cause you to think too much. Tonight: Play away. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) ★★★★ Consider how you feel when pushed to your limit, especially at home or in a personal situation. You could be far more exhausted and reactive than you realize.

In your present mood, you might not know when you are pushing too much. Tonight: Only what makes you happy. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) ★★★★★ Use your instincts and follow through on what you deem important. You might not be the lead player, but you certainly are instrumental. Tonight: Get a good night's sleep. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) ★★★★★ Zero in on what you want. A goal or simply a whim has been on the back burner for too long. Make it happen now. Open doors by sharing more of your plans. Tonight: Where the fun is. Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) ★★★★ You might feel exposed when expressing your strong feelings and pointing in a new direction. The real issue is determining at what point to defer. Tonight: Till the wee hours. — The astrological forecast should be read for entertainment only.

Dear Want: Start from a place of reality. Edwin has abdominal pains. Regardless of the cause, he should seek medical attention. Call the National Alliance on Mental Illness ( at 1-800950-NAMI (1-800-950-6264) and ask for a referral. Perhaps you could offer to go with him to see a doctor. And it is possible there is some environmental contamination that is causing Edwin’s problems. Try the Environmental Protection Agency (

Dear Annie: How can I help a friend who is convinced his neighbors are bombarding his house with rays that have affected his health and caused the death of one of his dogs? “Edwin” is a retired engineer in his early 70s, divorced for 10 years. When my husband was ill, Edwin was the only co-worker who bothered to visit. In the 15 years since my husband passed away, I’d lost track of Edwin until he showed up at my door six months ago, haggard and disheveled. He then told me of all the strange things that had been happening — the rays that caused him to suffer abdominal pain and drove his dogs to whimper and hide under tables. He said the dogs refuse to drink the tap water, and when he showers, his skin burns and tingles. In an effort to protect himself and his dogs, he has papered his walls with aluminum foil and put plastic and newspaper on the carpet so the dogs can relieve themselves indoors. Edwin has called the police a number of times, asking them to check for rays emanating from neighboring homes, but of course, they labeled him a crank. The last time he called, he was put in handcuffs and taken to a mental health facility for two weeks. He said they gave him
