PAUL BAHNMAIER, LECOMPTON, CENTER, TALKS about moving the state capital back to Lecompton as Kansas House Speaker Mike O’Neal, R-Hutchinson, left, and Gov. Sam Brownback listen on Friday in Constitution Hall. Kansas lawmakers were on hand to help celebrate 150 years of Kansas statehood.

Lawmakers mark Civil War’s beginnings at Constitution Hall By Scott Rothschild

LECOMPTON — In a celebration of Kansas’ past and future, state leaders gathered Friday to commemorate where many say the Civil War started: Constitution Hall. “The fight starts here,” Gov. Sam Brownback said of the upstairs room where the Kansas territorial legislature approved a pro-slavery constitution, which then started a historic chain of events. “You can almost feel the history and feel the bloodshed,” Brownback said to the more than 50 people who gathered at what Brownback called a “solemn” event. Passage of the Lecompton Constitution ignited blowback from anti-slavery forces, led to a brawl in

Lincoln would not have been elected if not for the Lecompton Constitution.” — Paul Bahnmaier, president of the Lecompton Historical Society the U.S. House, split the national Democratic Party and allowed Abraham Lincoln to win the 1860 presidential election with only 39 percent of the vote. Paul Bahnmaier, president of the Lecompton Historical Society, coordinated Friday’s event to help the state recognize Lecompton’s historical role in both Kansas and U.S. history. “Lincoln would not have been elected if not for the Lecompton

Constitution,” Bahnmaier said. Brownback said the Lecompton Constitution galvanized average Kansans to reject “an institution that was an abomination. We started the fight to end slavery.” Kansas entered the Union in 1861 as a free state, less than three months before the Civil War started. Both events are being recognized on the 150th anniversary. Brownback spoke about battles during the “Bleeding Kansas” period and mentioned that his mother grew up on property in Osawatomie where abolitionist John Brown had stayed. Bahnmaier said Lecompton, located in Douglas County between Lawrence and Topeka, is as historically significant as any major Civil Please see LECOMPTON, page 2A

BALDWIN CITY — Baker University senior Justin Morello was not accustomed to a smallschool or small-town atmosphere. Morello spent nine years in Cologne, Germany, which is home to nearly 1 million people, and graduated from Blue Valley North High School in Overland Park. While also considering attending the University of Florida, which would seem to fit the large-school trend, Morello chose Baker. He was the only one from his high school to do so. This week, as he awaited graduation from the small, private Methodist school, Morello credited Baker with opening up doors that might have stayed closed had he gone to a bigger school. “I wanted to be more in the small-school atmosphere,” Morello said. “I think that really, really, helped me out, and I don’t think I would be as successful if I chose to go to a university Please see BAKER, page 2A

HAVING SPENT HIS CHILDHOOD IN LARGE CITIES and schools, Justin Morello opted four years ago to enroll at Baker University because of the small-school, small-town atmosphere the campus offered. He now credits that atmosphere for a successful undergraduate career, which included an internship at Los Alamos National Laboratories. laboratories’ own special forces units patrolling the outside of the base. “It’s an incredible place and a lot of groundbreaking research is done at this institution,” Morello said. The scientist Morello worked for even offered him a full-time job doing research for her for a year. Morello credits Baker for giving him that opportunity. “I would not have been able to do that. I couldn’t even have dreamed of being able to go out there and having the opportunity to do that, but Baker allowed me to do it,” Morello said. Still somewhat undecided on his future, Morello turned down the job and instead is setting his sights on medical school. He plans to take the MCAT this summer and

enter medical school in the fall. “He’s a hard worker. He’s very dedicated,” Blake said. “He’ll be successful no matter what he does.” As Morello prepares for graduation Sunday in the Collins Center — and then the next step in his life — he does not regret his decision to attend Baker and would choose to be a Wildcat all over again. “I think I’ve made some great choices and I’ve made some mistakes, but I think everyone’s done that and it’s all part of the experience,” Morello said. “I think that’s the best way to put it. You take the ups with the downs and you just run with it.” — Baldwin City Signal intern Kyle Davis can be reached at 785-594-7080.

Netanyahu rejects Obama on borders In a blunt display of differences, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu rejected the idea of using his country’s 1967 boundaries as the basis for a neighboring Palestinian state on Friday, declaring his objections face-to-face to President Barack Obama who had raised the idea just 24 hours earlier in an effort to revive stalled Mideast peace talks. Though the two leaders, meeting in the Oval Office, found cordial and predictable agreement on the other central element that Obama outlined in his Mideast address Thursday — ironclad Israeli security alongside a Palestinian nation — progress on the bedrock issue of borders seemed as elusive as ever. 2 | NEW YORK CITY

IMF chief under house arrest Former IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn was released from jail Friday and will be held under house arrest near ground zero after the luxury apartment where he had arranged to stay fell through because the neighbors objected to the media frenzy. Prosecutors said he will be temporarily housed in a building on a small street in lower Manhattan within the Police Department’s “Ring of Steel” — a network of private and police cameras near where the World Trade Center stood. While he is there, his family and lawyers will look for a more permanent place for him to await trial on charges he tried to rape a hotel maid. 3 | BEIRUT

27 killed; conflict hitting stalemate Thousands of Syrians flooded the streets across the country Friday, defying an unrelenting government crackdown that has failed to crush a two-month uprising against the country’s authoritarian regime. Human rights activists said security forces opened fire, killing at least 27 people, including a 10-year-old boy. Friday’s turnout — and the now-familiar, deadly response by the regime — was the latest sign the conflict could be moving toward a dangerous stalemate with neither side able to tip the scales. President Bashar Assad’s forces have unleashed tanks and snipers and made thousands of arrests to break the revolt, but protesters continue to face down security forces. Protesters insisted their movement was growing and they would not be bowed.

Officer battery trial ends in man’s conviction

Move-out week big for ReStore collections By Christine Metz

A Douglas County jury Friday convicted a 20-year-old Lawrence man of intentional aggravated battery of a law enforcement officer for punching and injuring a Lawrence police officer in February. Prosecutors and District Judge Kay Huff said they expect Louis Galloway Jr. to spend some time in prison for the felony conviction. Huff revoked Galloway’s bond after the verdict was read at 12:15 p.m. Friday. “Our law enforcement officers put their lives on the line every single day to ensure our safety,” District Attorney Charles Branson said. “When someone is not only disrespectful to them but goes so far as to injure them, I believe it demonstrates how truly dangerous that individual is to our entire community.”

Brownback given opportunity to make statement on higher ed By Dolph C. Simons Jr.

Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback has been presented a unique opportunity to demonstrate the degree of importance he places on excellence in higher education. Earlier this week, former Kansas Lt. Gov. and Kansas Regents Chairman Gary Sherrer shocked his fellow regents by announcing he was resigning and immediately walked out of the Regents meeting. Whether or not this action was totally unexpected and a shock to the other regents is questionable, as relations among the nine-member board — all but two (Ed McKechnie and Tim Emert) appointed by former Gov. Kathleen Sebelius — has not been smooth. In response to Sherrer’s sudden resignation, some regents expressed surprise and tried to present a picture of everyone getting along fairly well. McKechnie and Emert were appointed by former Gov. Mark Parkinson. Sherrer acknowledged he was disappointed he was not selected to be on the search committee to find a new president for Emporia State University. Sherrer is a graduate of the university, and he said how much it would mean to him if he had the opportunity to play a role in the selection. However, his fellow

regents said no. According to sources close to the regents, it has not been a happy family, at least as far as Sherrer viewed the situation. An observer said “everything seemed a battle, there were some regents who hadn’t had an original idea for four or five years.” He added that some regents have the idea of let the university chancellor and presidents bring their issues to us and we’ll act and vote on the matter rather than the regents taking a pro-active role and knowing more about what is going on at the various schools they have the responsibility of overseeing. “Too many are too quick to accept what they are told by the university representatives, rather than making the effort to find out for themselves the actual situation. There is far too little verification,” the observer noted. All of this offers ample evidence the Kansas Board of Regents is not measuring up to its tremendously important responsibility. A truly excellent system of higher education is critical if Kansas and its citizens are to be competitive with the rest of the country. Settling for mediocrity, or what is easy, is not going to get the job done, and one of the essential parts in achieving this

goal is to have a superior, highly respected and committed Board of Regents. This is not accomplished by filling the nine regents chairs with friends, I-owe-yous and political payoffs. Such actions shortchange

COMMENTARY the state and its citizens as well as students, their parents and faculty. Unfortunately, this has been the pattern too long. Brownback now has the opportunity to select three new regents, the vacancy created by Sherrer’s resignation and the option of reappointing or dismissing Jarold Boettcher and Richard Hedges, both of whom are finishing their first term as regents. Politics has played too much of a role in the selection process and how the regents handle matters that come before the board. With Sherrer’s resignation, Vice Chairman Ed McKechnie is likely to move into the chairmanship. For whatever reason, right or wrong, the former Kansas state representative earned the nickname of “Slick Eddie” among his fellow lawmakers. The observer mentioned above said

McKechnie “is very political” in his actions and decisions. Is this what the state wants in the leader of the regents? Again, Gov. Brownback has the opportunity to make a powerful statement relative to how he looks upon the importance of higher education in Kansas. Will he nominate individuals to the board who are smart, talented, successful in their respective fields; respected by their peers for their honesty and deep interest in higher education; knowledgeable about fiscal affairs; and individuals who merit respect and attention of state lawmakers? Also, do the regents have the courage to do what is necessary when such action may not be the most popular or comfortable course of action? Brownback’s appointments will send a clear message, and hopefully the regents will hear this message loud and clear. ●●●

A bit more about former Kansas Bioscience Authority president and CEO Tom Thornton, who recently resigned his position and accepted a job at the Cleveland Clinic. According to a Kansas Watchdog report, Thornton had a sweet financial package. Thornton’s total pay, bonus and benefit package poten-

tially was worth more than $463,000 for fiscal year 2010, four times what Gov. Brownback makes and $63,000 more than President Obama’s salary. Thornton’s compensation included a $265,000 base; an annual performance bonus (42 percent of base), $111,300; an additional incentive opportunity (up to 18 percent of base), $47,700; a retirement plan (8 percent of base), $21,100; heath insurance (estimated at $750 a month), $9,000; car allowance ($625 a month), $7,500; and life and longterm disability insurance, $1,500. Securing funding for the NBAF facility in Manhattan would be a part of Thornton’s bonus package based on various levels of construction funding for NBAF, as would getting Kansas listed as a “bioscience powerhouse” in Business Facilities Magazine rankings. It’s questionable if this kind of pay and bonuses was what members of the Kansas Legislature had in mind when they set up the unique, visionary Kansas Bioscience Authority. Thornton, with the support and cooperation of the KBA board, put together a very attractive package for himself. It will be interesting to learn what the new KBA president and CEO will be paid.

HABITAT FOR HUMANITY STAFF MEMBER CASS FRAGA holds on to a piece of carpet as the organization’s truck drives away from behind Ellsworth Hall on the Kansas University campus Friday. Habitat ReStore collected unwanted items from KU residence halls to recycle or sell.


The one behind Ellsworth contained mostly plastic shelving units, rugs and lamps. So far this week, ReStore recycled about 540 pounds of scrap metal from the broken refrigerators and microwaves they received. And they collected bookshelves, futons and rugs they can sell. “This is our most overwhelming collection,” Fraga said.

Outside Ellsworth Hall, students were busy carrying armfuls of boxes, suitcases and electronics. As Maddy Finch was packing, she recycled old cans, clothes and, best of all, paper from no-longer-needed homework assignments and notes. While Finch didn’t have any problem recycling those unused items, she wasn’t ready to leave her first year of college behind. “This is sad and depressing,” she said. — Reporter Christine Metz can be reached at 832-6352.

BRIEFLY Lincoln Flag to go on display Friday A 34-star Civil War-era American flag will be on display at the Eldridge hotel this Friday in honor of the upcoming Memorial Day weekend. The flag, on loan from Kansas

University professor Dennis Dailey’s personal collection, boasts one star for each state in the Union at the time. Known as the Lincoln Flag because of the famed president’s use of it as the national flag, it will be displayed from 5 p.m. until 8 p.m. at 701 Mass. along with several additional Civil War items.

The display will run as part of Final Fridays in Lawrence and is free and open to the public.

KU steam whistle silenced after lightning The Kansas University steam whistle malfunctioned Friday,

possibly due to lightning. KU spokeswoman Jill Jess said the whistle sounded around 9:30 a.m. and wouldn’t shut off. It happened right after lightning flashed nearby, she said. Jess said the whistle was turned off and workers planned to inspect it once the weather cleared.

Galloway was convicted of punching and injuring Officer Jonathon Evinger in a Feb. 26 confrontation near 26th and Iowa streets. According to testimony at the two-day trial, Evinger and another officer, Stephen Ramsdell, were trying to arrest Galloway for driving on a suspended license. Galloway disputed that he was driving. Evinger has not been able to return to regular patrol duty because of the injury affecting his vision. Jurors didn’t convict Galloway of the most severe count of intentional aggravated battery that prosecutors sought. Instead of finding that Galloway caused great bodily harm to Evinger, they reached a verdict that found his actions could have resulted in great bodily harm to the officer. Both charges carry presumptive prison sentences, although Galloway likely faces about two years less than he could have been eligible to receive. Now he faces a sentence in a range of 38 months to 172 months in prison, depending on his criminal history. “Regardless, he’s going to be held accountable for what he did to Officer Evinger,” said David Melton, a chief

assistant district attorney who prosecuted the case. Galloway was also convicted of three misdemeanor charges of assault and battery of Ramsdell and obstruction. Jurors deliberated for about one hour Thursday evening and three hours Friday before reaching a verdict. Melton on Thursday played a grainy and dark video recorded from Ramsdell’s dashboard camera in which an officer identified as Evinger can be seen falling down briefly and then later getting up to help Ramsdell try to subdue Galloway and his brother, whom Evinger sprayed with pepper spray. Later in the video Evinger falls to the ground again while trying to lean against Ramsdell’s patrol car. Doctors said Evinger suffered a concussion as well. Before he was injured, an altercation ensued, and at one point Galloway knocked Evinger to the ground with a punch to his left eye, prosecutors said. Jurors watched the video at least twice in the courtroom Friday during deliberations. Defense attorney Michael Clarke argued to jurors there was not enough evidence for them to determine that Galloway intentionally struck Evinger. Huff is scheduled to sentence Galloway June 27.

Brownback starts review of tax code LECOMPTON (AP) — Gov. Sam Brownback signaled Friday that he expects a plan for overhauling the Kansas tax system — and cutting income taxes — to emerge from his administration by the end of the year. Brownback said that his administration has started studying tax proposals and said a plan would be finished this year. The timing would allow legislators to consider a plan during their next annual session. The Republican governor has said repeatedly that he thinks reducing income taxes will spark economic growth, keep residents from leaving and lure people from outside the state. “I think there’s a combination of things that need to be looked at, but to me the tax that’s one of the most sensitive for economic growth is the state income tax,” Brownback said after an event in Lecompton, about 20 miles east of Topeka. “To look at the total picture is what we want to do, with an eye toward getting the state income tax down.” The Legislature has large Republican majorities in both chambers, but GOP leaders disagree about how quickly to move on cutting taxes. House Republican leaders are eager to lower income taxes, but

their less conservative Senate counterparts are wary because of the state’s ongoing budget problems. Brownback Democratic leaders argue that the state needs to overhaul its tax system to make it fairer, but their concerns have focused on closing exemptions to the state’s sales tax and reconsidering past business tax cuts to bolster state revenues — and government programs. The budget approved by legislators this year cuts general state aid to public schools by 5.6 percent, or $232 per student, as Brownback had proposed. Also, the state cut its overall spending about 6 percent for the fiscal year that begins July 1. “We need to look at restoring some of the very, deep painful cuts we have made,” said House Minority Leader Paul Davis, D-Lawrence. Brownback acknowledged that move toward overhauling the tax system and cutting income taxes will be tempered by budget concerns. But he added, “We’ve got to ge t a b e tte r g row t h

atmosphere.” Brownback said Revenue Secretary Nick Jordan and Commerce Secretary Pat George, both former legislators, are involved in the discussion, but he said he’s going to bring “leading thinkers” on tax issues from both Kansas and around nation into it. He said he’s not sure whether he’ll establish a formal study commission, and he encouraged legislative leaders to consider their own study this summer and fall. The governor said state officials see Kansas residents migrating to states with lower income taxes or, like Texas, no income tax, and Kansas gains residents from higher-tax states. This year, lawmakers approved Brownback’s plan to declare 50 of the state’s 105 counties “Rural Enterprise Zones” and exempt anyone who moves into them from outside Kansas from state income taxes from 2012 through 2016. Brownback also persuaded legislators to rewrite income tax laws to help corporations after they buy new machinery. The legislation boosted the deduction that companies and partnerships can take each year for the decline in the value of their machinery.

KU grad nontraditional in ‘every sense of the definition’ By Christine Metz

In the years between high school and college graduation, Chris Martin has transitioned from framing houses to the prospect of helping frame national and international policy on sustainability and the environment. On Sunday, Martin will graduate from Kansas University with a degree in architectural engineering and then move onto the University of Pennsylvania’s School of Law. The path leading the 29-yearold Martin there is anything but typical. Martin describes himself as a nontraditional student in “every sense of the definition.” Graduating from high school as a National Merit Scholar, Martin was unsure of what he wanted to do but knew college was expected of him. He enrolled at the University of Alabama. After a year, he realized college wasn’t for him. At least not yet. He went on to enlist in the Marine Corps in 2000, where he served as a company clerk at Camp Lejeune, N.C. After two heat strokes, Martin was given a medical discharge. As his fellow Marines were heading to Iraq, Martin began framing housing and working construction. It was work that suited him. His parents moved to Dodge City. It was there that he met his wife, Lindsay. The couple moved to Lawrence so she could attend school at KU. For Chris, being back around academic life, the idea of going college was no longer one of obligation. In 2007, he began attending KU as an architectural engineering student. “I enjoy construction, but I was leaving construction to go to something I would enjoy more,” Martin said. Thomas Glavinich, an associate professor of civil, environmental and architectural engineering, said it took just a few conversations before he knew Martin had a broader interest in sustainability. So the professor steered his student toward pursuing a career in environmental law, an unusual next step for an architectural engineer. “We really need technical people, we need engineers and scientists involved in the policy at the national and international level,” Glavinich said. Last summer, Martin’s interest in sustainability

CHRIS MARTIN WILL GRADUATE from Kansas University this weekend and then head to the University of Pennsylvania to study law.

went to a new level when he moved to London as an intern in British Parliament. It was a slow political season, so Martin spent days in the Westminster Reference Library studying the European Union’s environmental policies. He came to the realization that the United States was lagging behind other countries. He returned to KU energized. “It just seems to be such a evolving and growing topic that it stays interesting. Legislative acts and technology continues to change and develop,” Martin said. “Plus it’s the gravity of it. Something has to be done.” Martin’s passion for sustainability will leave a legacy at KU. He has served on the KU Student Senate and was appointed to serve on the Student Environmental Advisory Board, both of which have taken on environmentally minded policies and projects.

He was one of three students appointed to the Chancellor’s Sustainability Advisory Council. “I see him as a leader,” Glavinich said. “I think KU will be very proud of him and his career.” This semester Martin worked on a project that looked at ways to make the Kansas Union more sustainable by incorporating solar panels and wind turbines to lower the building’s energy load. Wayne Pearse, director of building services for the Kansas Memorial Unions, said it was Martin who wrote the scope of work for the project and was in the union taking measurements. “He has never lost sight of the goal,” Pearse said. Pearse said Martin’s realworld experience has given his work a sense of practicality not often found among students. “When you have gone out there and you have gotten your hands dirty, you sure look at things from a different prospective,” Pearse said. “You know how to get it done.” — Reporter Christine Metz can be reached at 832-6352.

Mississippi dangerous to navigate By Mary Foster and Alan Sayre Associated Press Writers

BATON ROUGE, LA. — Travis Morace has been running boats on the Mississippi for two decades, witnessing all of the mighty river’s many moods. He’s seen it calm and smooth as a newly paved road and endured jarring rides filled with treacherous twists and bumps. But even experienced river pilots have never seen anything like the roiling current now racing to the Gulf of Mexico. Since spring floods pushed the Mississippi to historic heights, America’s busiest inland waterway has become one of its most challenging to navigate. “If you’re not scared of it, you should be, because it has a lot of ways of hurting you,” Morace said this week as he slowly nudged his tugboat, the Bettye M. Jenkins, along the river bank near Vidalia, La. The high water brings with it a host of hazards. Debris is everywhere, and the unusually swift current makes it difficult for pilots to go upstream. Good luck stopping if you’re headed downstream. For those who make their living on the water, the river is a respected adversary in the best of times. Now it just plain frightens them. On Friday, the Mississippi at Vidalia looked more like a stormy ocean than a river. Whitecaps frothed under the bridge that connects the city to Natchez, Miss., and whirlpools churned across the channel. In many places, obstacles were hiding just beneath the surface. Some trees in Natchez were nearly submerged. A basketball hoop protruded about 2 feet above the water at a flooded-out court. The current was filled with flotsam of every sort, including whole trees and long, green ribbons of vegetation. A nearby alligator struggled against the water’s pull, finally finding refuge on the porch of a building partly concealed by the rising water. The high water and rapid current caused at least two barges to break loose from a towboat Friday and hit a bridge. Three barges of corn sank, the towboat’s owner said. No one was hurt. The barges went down near Baton Rouge, prompting the Coast Guard to close a fivemile stretch of the river. Officials did not know when it would reopen. “You ask me, they should close it down altogether,” said Jerry Batson, captain of the tug Gladys Batson. “It’s awful risky for any vessel.”

FISHMONGER PAT O’CONNELL SHOWS HIS WARES to Britain’s Queen Elizabeth II during a visit Friday to the English Market in Cork, Ireland, on the fourth and final day of her first-ever state visit to Ireland. The ambitious trip has been hailed by many as consolidating a new era of cooperation between England and Ireland.

Queen’s historic Ireland trip ends on high note By Gregory Katz Associated Press Writer

C O R K , I R E L A N D — Queen Elizabeth II left Ireland on a triumphant note Friday, finally getting a chance to mingle with cheering crowds despite the security concerns that kept her slightly isolated on the first three days of her visit. Adults and schoolchildren roared their delight as the queen walked out of the English Market and chatted with onlookers who had waited patiently for a glimpse of her during her brief trip to Cork. A party atmosphere prevailed as school bands serenaded the queen. “She’s a very nice lady and she told me she had a very nice time in Ireland,” said Adam Ryan, 12. “I never expected her to come talk to us. You can tell she’s kind.” The atmosphere in Cork was much more relaxed and jubilant than it had been in Dublin, where a bomb was discovered on a suburban bus hours before her arrival, ratcheting up fears of a dissident attack as the queen made the first visit of a British monarch to the Republic of Ireland. Numerous threats had prompted the largest security operation in Ireland’s modern history, shutting down city centers and keeping crowds away from the queen until Friday afternoon in Cork. The queen made only one public speech during her journey, at a state dinner Wednesday night, but it had an impact throughout Ireland. She won rave reviews for directly addressing the tense relations that had often left these two neighbors wary, despite strong cultural, family and business ties. The queen did not apologize for English actions, but expressed sympathy and regret for those who had suffered under them, striking a

chord with many Irish listeners who said they were moved by her sincere and dignified approach. “It’s the best thing that’s happened in Ireland in 20 years,” said baker Joe Hagerty, who runs Heaven’s Cakes in the English Market, the queen’s first stop in Cork. “She’s been very sweet and very direct and kept it very short. She said the right things. It was absolutely sincere. Everybody on our side of the world was really happy with it.” Pat O’Connell, who showed the queen and her husband Prince Philip his vast supply of fresh fish — including the wild salmon the queen favors — said the monarch had accomplished her goals for the ambitious trip. “We are absolutely thrilled, it has been the most wonderful trip,” he said. “The woman has just shown such dignity, such grace. You can say 99.99 percent of the people are thrilled.” His views were echoed by other shopkeepers. Some said they were nationalists who wanted a united Ireland but had still been charmed by the queen. “I’m certainly a nationalist, don’t get me wrong, I’d love to see a united Ireland,” said Michael Corrigan, who showed the queen produce from his Superfruit stand. “But I’m quite happy for her to come. We must never forget our history, but we must always forgive. If you don’t forgive, well, you spend your life in bitterness. I’m ready to forgive and move on.” He said the attitude toward the queen is positive but added “you’ll always have a few” who oppose her. Radio talk shows were f illed with praise for the queen, and TV commentators hailed her visit as a watershed event. Some even joked that maybe independence hadn’t been a good thing.

Obama embraces Bush’s Mideast doctrine WASHINGTON — Herewith President Obama’s May 19 Middle East speech, annotated: “It will be the policy of the United States to promote reform across the region, and to support transitions to democracy.” With this, Barack Obama openly, unreservedly and without a trace of irony or self-reflection adopts the Bush Doctrine, which made the spread of democracy the key U.S. objective in the Middle East. “Too many leaders in the region tried to direct their people’s grievances elsewhere. The West was blamed as the source of all ills.” Note how even Obama’s rationale matches Bush’s. Bush argued that because the roots of 9/11 were to be found in the deflected anger of repressed Middle Eastern peoples, our response would require a democratic transformation of the region. “We have a stake not just in the stability of nations, but in the self-determination of individuals.” A fine critique of exactly the kind of “realism” the Obama administration prided itself for having practiced in its first two years. How far did this concession to Bush go? Note Obama’s example of the democratization we’re aiming for. He actually said: “In Iraq, we see the promise of a multiethnic, multisectarian democracy. There, the Iraqi people have rejected the perils of political violence for a

democratic process ... Iraq is poised to play a key role in the region.” Hail the Bush-Obama doctrine. “President Assad now has a choice: he can lead that transition (to democracy), or get out of the way.” The only jarring note in an otherwise interesting, if convoluted, attempt to unite all current “Arab Spring” policies under one philosophical rubric. Convoluted because the Bahrain part was unconvincing and the omission of Saudi Arabia was unmistakable. Syria’s Assad leading a transition to democracy? This is bizarre and appalling. Assad has made all-out war on his people — shooting, arresting,

executing, even using artillery against cities. Yet Obama is still holding out the olive branch when, if anything, he should be declaring Assad as illegitimate as Gadhafi. Clearly, some habits of engagement/appeasement die hard. “A lasting peace will involve ... Israel as a Jewish state and the homeland for the Jewish people, and the state of Palestine as the homeland for the Palestinian people.” Meant to reassure Israelis that the administration rejects the so-called right of return of Palestinian refugees. They would return to Palestine, not Israel — Palestine being their homeland, and Israel (which would cease to be Jewish if flooded with refugees) being a Jewish state. But why use code for an issue on which depends Israel’s existence? “The borders of Israel and Palestine should be based on the 1967 lines with mutually agreed swaps.” A new formulation favorable to maximal Arab demands. True, that idea has been the working premise for negotiations since 2000. But no president had ever before publicly and explicitly endorsed the 1967 lines. Even more alarming to Israel is Obama’s omission of previous American assurances to recognize “realities on the ground” in adjusting the 1967 border, meaning U.S. agreement that Israel would incorporate the thickly populated, close-in settlements in any land swap. By omitting this, Obama leaves the impression of indifference

Rich Minder, president, 760-3791 (H) 1218 Del. No. 3, 66044

To the editor: There is a plan brewing in the United Nations to unilaterally give Palestinian refugees their own state, with complete disregard for the state of Israel. This state would include the terrorist group Hamas in its government, an Iranbacked, U.S. State Department-designated foreign terrorist organization that is responsible for firing thousands of rockets at civilian targets in Israel. Palestinian leaders refuse to recognize Israel’s right to exist as a homeland for the Jewish people and have stated that they wish to drive all the Jews into the sea. Israel has

to the fate of these settlements. This would be a significant change in U.S. policy and a heavy blow to the Israeli national consensus. “The Palestinian people must have the right to govern themselves ... in a sovereign and contiguous state.” Normal U.S. boilerplate except for one thing: Obama refers to Palestinian borders with Egypt, Jordan and Israel. But the only Palestinian territory bordering Egypt is Gaza. How do you get contiguity with Gaza? Does Obama’s map force Israel to give up a corridor of territory connecting the West Bank and Gaza? This is an old Palestinian demand which would cut Israel in two. Is this simply an oversight? Or a new slicing up of Israel? Finally, in calling for both parties to “come back to the table,” the Palestinians have to explain “the recent announcement of an agreement between Fatah and Hamas. ... How can one negotiate with a party that has shown itself unwilling to recognize your right to exist?” Not a strong statement about Washington rejecting any talks involving Hamas. A mere placeholder. On the other hand, Obama made no mention here of Israeli settlements. A mere oversight? Or has Obama finally realized that his making a settlement freeze a precondition for negotiations — something never demanded before he took office — was a disastrous unforced error? One can only hope.

given many concessions and much land (Gaza, the Sinai) in a desire for peace, but in return has experienced deadly violence and bombings from terrorist groups such as Hamas. In fact, the destruction of Israel is a central tenet of Hamas’ mission statement. The Palestinians have yet to prove themselves capable of self-government without corruption and continue to spread antiSemitic propaganda to their children. I hope that our country will stand strong in the face of this terrible plan and support one of our closest and most dependable allies in the world: Israel. Estra Grant, Lawrence



After a lonely day at the polls with a turnout of only 21 percent, election YEARS officials were able AGO to announce the IN 1986 results. The $8.6 million school bond issue, slated to pay for a new elementary school and the expansion of three other schools, had passed by only 504 votes.

Horse virus postpones event HUTCHINSON (AP) — A dangerous virus that’s been diagnosed among horses in the western U.S. hasn’t reached Kansas, but organizers of a major team roping event in Hutchinson are taking no chances. The United States Team Roping Championships had been scheduled Friday through Sunday at the Kansas State Fairgrounds. But the event has been postponed indefinitely. Organizer Jeff Smith told KWCH-TV a lot of owners don’t want to put their horses at risk of contracting Equine Herpes Virus-1, a contagious and potentially fatal disease. The outbreak was traced to a cutting horse championship held April 30 to May 8 in Odgen, Utah. EHV-1 has been reported in 17 horses in at least nine states and Canada, and three have died. Smith says the roping competition draws several hundred horses and teams from throughout the U.S.

Recruit Daniels remains quiet


Tom Keegan

Francis puts on a show The two-mile run isn’t as physically taxing as, say, the 400 meters. It’s not as likely as the quarter mile to leave runners hyperventilating and heaving on the infield turf alongside the track. But it is the longest and because of that the most mentally taxing. When most talk of the race requiring great endurance, they mean physically, yet mental endurance is the true key. It can break even elite milers, send them walking away swearing it off for life. Good luck trying to break Free State High senior Hayley Francis, so much tougher than her gentle smile suggests. Running the 3,200 meters for what she said was just the fourth time Friday night on her home track in the regional meet, Francis appeared to be struggling most of the way, running from the second lane instead of settling into a spot on the inside of the track, her head bobbing too much. She hung in there near the front, but exerted so much effort an obvious question hung in the air throughout the race: Would she have enough strength left to kick past the competition and win? She took the lead during the final of the eight laps, and with 200 meters left, something inside her triggered, and as she kicked down the home stretch, her lead widening with every stride — a bit like Secretariat in the Belmont, not quite, but a bit — more than just Free State backers in the crowd erupted. The ovation grew out of respect for a little girl showing such a big heart in what qualified as a moment as special as any in a night packed with them. Francis shattered her personal best with a time of 11:37.83, a remarkable performance sandwiched between running legs of the 4X800 and 4X400 relays. “To be honest, I was kind of done on the third lap,” Francis said of her two-mile run. Feeling done physically, she was far from finished competing. “With 200 to go, I was like, ‘All right, let’s just do this.’ I figured the faster I run, the faster it would be over with,” she said. “It was a pleasant surprise.” She said she didn’t recall just what it was that triggered her kick. “I’m guessing someone was standing there and told me to sprint, so I just did,” Francis said. “It was probably my crazy mother.” Francis spent most of her career as a half-miler and miler and didn’t find out the two mile suited her so well until Firebirds coach Steve Heffernan put her in the race five weeks ago in Wichita in the K.T. Woodman Track Classic. “I find it’s easier to focus on a longer race because I like to pace,” Francis said. “Honestly, I have no idea what I’m doing, so it’s just fun to just go and do my thing. I don’t really have a strategy with it. I think that’s why I like it.” Francis said she has no clue who will be the runners to beat in the two mile. She was enjoying the moment, made all the richer because it happened at home, too much to look that far ahead. “So nice,” she said of Friday’s meet taking place at Free State. “It was a really good treat and made us all feel a lot more comfortable and just really proud and really got us to do our best because we wanted to show off on our home track and show everyone what we’ve got.” Mission accomplished.


Win … or else


No telling when saga with prep will end By Gary Bedore

No. 10-rated basketball prospect DeAndre Daniels will sign a financial-aid agreement with a college at some point. Which college and when that will happen are anybody’s guess. Daniels, a 6-foot-8 senior forward from Florida’s IMG Academies who was expected to announce his college choice Wednesday, then Thursday, did not choose between Kansas, Texas and Oregon as the school week came to a close Friday. IMG officials said they will let reporters know if and I firmly when a new decision day is believe it’s planned. Kansas or “I know that a few tentative Texas.” announcement dates had been — anaset, but until lyst Shay Wildeboor everybody (in Daniels camp) is on the same page, I don’t anticipate an announcement,” said analyst Shay Wildeboor. “I firmly believe it’s Kansas or Texas, but at this point, DeAndre needs to talk with his father and get everything figured out.” It has been speculated that Daniels’ dad, who is in California, favors KU. Some have said DeAndre, who is in Florida, favors UT. Nobody knows for sure because both family members have been reluctant to speak to reporters. Daniels has let the spring signing period elapse, meaning he can only sign a financial-aid agreement, not a letter of intent. The agreement binds the school to the player, but not the player to the school. Daniels in theory would be free to attend any school two or three weeks into first semester of the 2011-12 school year. “This has definitely been one of the more heavily followed recruitments with very little information,” Wildeboor said. “The media have been left in the dark. DeAndre is the one who put in the work to get himself in this position. He deserves the right to take as much time to make the best decision for himself.”

KANSAS STATE’S JASON KING CELEBRATES in front of his teammates after scoring a run in the Wildcats’ 11-10 victory over Kansas University. K-State put KU in a must-win situation with the outcome Friday in Manhattan.

KU must win out to reach OKC By Matt Tait

MANHATTAN — The task of qualifying for the postseason just became a lot tougher. Needing two or more victories in its three-game series against Kansas State this weekend to advance to the Big 12 tournament, Kansas University’s baseball team dropped a heartbreaker, 11-10 in 10 innings, Friday night, blowing leads of 3-2, 7-4, 9-7 and 10-9 in the process. Now the Jayhawks (26-28 overall, 9-16 Big 12) must win both remaining games with KSU (32-21,

10-14) to slide into the No. 8 seed in next week’s conference tourney. “In reality, that could’ve been an incredible win for us,” KU coach Ritch Price said. “Instead, it’s a devastating loss.” The teams combined for 20 runs on 30 hits K-State’s Ross Kivett ended the slugfest by singling off Alex Cox in the bottom of the 10th inning to drive in Tanner Witt with the winning run. Not only was Friday’s game the longest of the season for KU — the final out was recorded 4:14 after the first pitch — it also was one of the wildest.

“There’s no question,” Price said. “It was a very, very unique game. You just don’t play many games over four hours in college baseball these days.” Seven batters were hit by pitches, six of them Wildcats. The pitching staffs combined to throw seven wild pitches. And the teams worked through 10 different pitchers. But even with all of those wild and wacky stats to digest, it went down as the sixth walk-off loss in conference play this season for the Jayhawks.

FREE STATE SOPHOMORE DEMARCO BOBO crashes into the sandpit during the Boys Long Jump event. Bobo qualified for state based on his regional performance Friday at FSHS.

For some athletes from Lawrence and Free State high schools, Friday’s regional track meet at FSHS marked the end of their track careers. But for the ones who were able to place in the top four in their events Friday, the fun is just beginning. Fourteen athletes from Free State and 11 from Lawrence High qualified for the state meet, which will be held next weekend at Wichita State University. The Free State girls team finished in third out of eight teams, and the Lawrence High girls

team finished in sixth. The Firebirds’ boys team finished fifth, and the Lions boys team finished seventh. FSHS coach Steve Heffernan said he hoped his teams could place higher in the team standings but was pleased with the individual results. “I really do think there was a big homefield advantage,” Heffernan said. FSHS freshman Alexa Har1 mon-Thomas cleared 5 feet, 7 ⁄2 inches in the high jump, setting her fourth school record of the season. Free State senior Austin Hoag also set a school record in the high jump, clearing 6-5. Harmon-Thomas also won the

100-meter hurdles (14.64 seconds), the 300-meter hurdles (45.45) and the long jump (17-91⁄2). She has changed her 300 hurdle technique recently. Instead of starting slowly and trying to finish the race strong, HarmonThomas is focusing on starting fast and holding on until the finish line. “There’s a lot of different ways to run it, but I think I found my way now,” Harmon-Thomas said. Lawrence High’s Blake Hocking is also working on his technique in the shot put and discus. He won the shot put with 1 throw of 58-10 ⁄ 2 inches, but Please see TRACK, page 3B

Francis gets first win; Royals blank Cards, 3-0 By Doug Tucker Associated Press Sports Writer

KANSAS CITY , M O. — Breaking through for his first victory since July 30 put a smile on Jeff Francis’ face, not a bounce in his step. “I mean, I’m still 1-5,” the righthander said Friday night after

combining with two relievers in Kansas City’s 3-0 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals. “As much relief as there may be, it’s a long year.” Francis threw 72⁄3 innings, outdueling Chris Carpenter, and leading the Royals to their first shutout in 61 interleague games

against their state rival. Since coming over from Colorado, he had pitched well at times but failed to get a win in 10 starts. He gave up six and two runs, walked two and struck out six while raising his career record over the Cardinals to 5-1. “He changed speeds, kept the

Boogaard died of alcohol, oxycodone MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The death of Rangers enforcer Derek Boogaard was an accident, due to a toxic mix of alcohol and the powerful painkiller oxycodone. The Hennepin County Medical Examiner announced Boogaard’s cause of death Friday, saying it was unclear exactly when the 28-yearold died. Boogaard was found dead in his Minneapolis apartment last Friday, five months after he sus-

tained a season-ending concussion with the New York Rangers. The medical examiner said no private data on Boogaard would be released, but a statement his family issued through the National Hockey League Players’ Association indicated the 6-foot-7 Boogaard had been struggling with pain and addiction. “After repeated courageous attempts at rehabilitation and

with the full support of the New York Rangers, the NHLPA and the NHL, Derek had been showing tremendous improvement but was ultimately unable to beat this opponent,” the family said. “While he played and lived with pain for many years, his passion for the game, his teammates, and his community work was unstoppable.” Experts say mixing alcohol and

By Kate Hairopoulos The Dallas Morning News

OKLAHOMA CITY — Thunder coach Scott Brooks seems as down-to-earth as an NBA coach can be. He chirps good mornings to reporters. He’s practically cheerful. When he’s referred to as Scotty, it just seems right. But somewhere inside the undersized former NBA point guard is a no-nonsense, size-it-up nerve that he trusts — even in the Western Conference finals. Brooks said he “went with my gut,” when he stuck with an unorthodox lineup of reserves, plus Kevin Durant, of course, in the fourth quarter of the Game 2 victory Thursday over the Mavericks. “And it worked,” he said. But how the third-year coach manages the ensuing fallout could influence if the Thunder is to take its first lead of the series after today’s Game 3. Dealing with Dirk Nowitzki is one thing. But Brooks’ lineup dallying is potentially polarizing on his own team. Among the starters who didn’t play in the final quarter: point guard Russell Westbrook, the much analyzed, puzzling, picked-on Thunder player who was a second-team All-NBA selection. Westbrook said all the right things — really by sticking to his company line — after the game and again Friday, and refused to ignite scrutiny into controversy. “He’s the head coach and he makes the decisions ... and he made the best one,” Westbrook said. “I’m just sticking behind my team.” His play has been publicly dissected throughout the postseason. Does he shoot too much, take bad shots, not pass enough? “Regardless of what I do, it doesn’t matter,” he said. “I can’t do no right.” Westbrook said the media should focus on the Thunder winning, not on his play, which resulted in 18 points on 7-of-15 shooting in Game 2. He was 3-of-15 in Game 1 but still had 20 points thanks to free throws. But he has seven assists to eight turnovers in this series, and he’d just lost the ball, then fouled Mavs guard Jason Kidd to make it worse, when Brooks took him out with 28.9 seconds left in the third quarter Thursday. Westbrook appeared upset and admitted to being “frustrated.” But Brooks went out of his way Friday to smooth things over. He claimed he sat Westbrook because he always does late in the third, as the stress on a point guard requires rest. He didn’t put him back in, Brooks said, because Eric Maynor, James Harden and Co. undeniably had it going. “He’s competitive, and that’s what makes Russell good,” Brooks said. “If he didn’t feel a little frustrated in the fourth quarter, then I would have a problem.” Durant praised Westbrook as a teammate and said the criticism on him is too much. Center Kendrick Perkins, who also sat in the final quarter, said being a spectator will motivate Westbrook. “He always plays with a chip on his shoulder,” Perkins said. “Prepare to see a different Russ Westbrook in Game 3.” And prepare to see Brooks go with his gut, even if unexpected.

medicines can cause dangerous reactions. Drinking alcohol while taking strong painkillers like oxycodone can result in breathing problems and increase the risk of an overdose, according to the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism. Boogaard was the older brother of Kansas University women’s basketball senior Krysten Boogaard.

‘Macho Man’ Savage dies in car crash Randy “Macho Man” Savage, the professional wrestler known for his raspy voice, the sunglasses and bandanas he wore in the ring and the young woman named Miss Elizabeth who often accompanied him, died in a car crash Friday in Florida. He was 58. A Florida Highway Patrol crash report said the former wrestler — whose legal name was Randy Mario Poffo — was driving a Jeep Wrangler when he lost control in Pinellas County around 9:25 a.m. The Jeep veered over the raised concrete median divider, Savage crossed over the eastbound lanes and crashed head-on into a tree. Police said he may have suffered a “medical event” before the accident, but the report did not elaborate, and it said officials would need to perform an autopsy to know for sure. The report said a woman in the vehicle, identified as Barbara L. Poffo, 56, suffered minor injuries. A statement from Stamford, Conn.-based World Wrestling Entertainment said the passenger was the wrestler’s current wife.

FREE STATE’S KARA MISHLER COMPETES in the 200-yard medley relay. Mishler and teammates qualified sixth in the event at state Friday at Hummer Park.

19-3) at 10 a.m. Saturday, May 28 in a semifinal. Friday’s loser is eliminated. Semifinal winners will meet in the championship game at 4 p.m. Saturday. The 6A state baseball bracket won’t be released until all regionals are complete.

KU golfer Gilbert falls to tie for 53rd TUCSON, ARIZ. — Kansas University sophomore Chris

“On a couple of my turns, I just miscounted my strokes, so I’ll have to fix that for (today),” Moore said. Mishler, Miller, Moore and Kate McCurdy dropped almost two seconds to qualify seventh in the 400 free relay (3:54.83), also good for a spot in today’s finals. Free State’s Annie Soderberg, the lone city diver competing, placed ninth in the dive finals with a cumulative score of 321.10. Annie Odrowski and Miranda Rohn were the top standouts for Lawrence High, as they each qualified for the

championship heat in one individual event. Odrowski qualified fifth in the 500 free (5:29.92), and Rohn qualified eighth in the 100 back (1:01.84). Both Lions also reached the consolation f inals in one other event each; Odrowski qualified 14th in the 100 back (1:04.28), and Rohn qualified 13th in the 200 IM (2:21.60). “I feel OK about (my time),” said Odrowski, who barely had enough time to rest after the 500. “I definitely wish the 100 back was before the 500, or at least I wish I had a few more minutes to rest between them.” Two of Lawrence’s relay teams — Rachel Buchner, Mallory Neet, Odrowski and Rohn — also reached the consolation finals: the 200 medley team qualified 12th at 2:01.32, and the 400 free team qualified 15th at 4:07.06. McCurdy qualified 16th in the 200 free (2:08.46) and 500 free (5:48.36), and Miller qualif ied 13th in the 500 free (5:45.80) to reach the consolation finals for the Firebirds Free State’s 200 free relay team (Rosemary Black, Caroline King, Katie Kimbrough, Kate McCurdy) also reached the consolation finals with a 16th-place finish at 1:51.26.

three years, Mishler and Moore showed up in a big way at state, leading FSHS to what was an outstanding first day. In the first event of the afternoon, Moore and Mishler teamed with Hana Arch and Morgan Miller to qualify the 200 medley relay team for finals after a sixth-place qualifying finish at 1:55.56 — nearly five seconds better than their previous best this season. And that was only the beginning. Mishler qualified for the finals in her two individual events, qualifying eighth in

the 200 IM (2:18.03) and third in the 100 fly (59.65). “I had so much excitement and adrenaline,” Mishler said. “(The 100 fly) should’ve hurt way more than it did, but you just don’t think about it.” Moore also reached the championship heat in each of her two individual events, qualifying sixth in the 50 free (25.18) and second in the 100 breaststroke after swimming a season-best 1:08.08. And Moore, still looking to top her personal best in the 100 breaststroke (1:06.29), wants to swim even faster today.

Red Sox, Nationals win big The Associated Press

Interleague Red Sox 15, Cubs 5 BOSTON — Adrian Gonzalez had four of Boston’s 19 hits, adding four RBIs on Friday night as the Red Sox welcomed Chicago back to Fenway Park for the first time since 1918 by beating them. Kevin Youkilis had two doubles and a two-run homer, and Jacoby Ellsbury also had three hits for Boston, which won its seventh consecutive game. The Red Sox are 22-10 since losing 10 of their first 12 games; they have passed the New York Yankees for the first time this season, and now trail the AL East-leading Tampa Bay Rays by just a halfgame.

Mets 2, Yankees 1 N EW Y ORK — R.A. Dickey regained command of his knuckleball and confounded the Yankees for six innings, Daniel Murphy homered, and a youthful Mets lineup won the Subway Series opener Friday night in front of a surprisingly lackluster New York crowd. Justin Turner had three hits, including a tying double off Freddy Garcia (2-4) to give him an RBI in six straight games. Jose Reyes made a runsaving play at shortstop, and Francisco Rodriguez converted his 15th straight save for the resurgent Mets, winners of 10 of 14.

DALLAS PLAYERS DIRK NOWITZKI (41), TYSON CHANDLER (6) AND DESHAWN STEVENSON WALK OFF THE COURT after a timeout was called in the second half of Thursday’s 106-100 loss to Oklahoma City in Dallas. The Mavericks and Thunder will collide in Game 3 at 8 tonight in Oklahoma City. their court for Game 3 at 8 tonight. Provided, that is, that Westbrook is OK with having had to watch. Although he was agitated immediately after being pulled late in the third quarter, he said all the right things after the game, and continued to try to douse any controversy on Friday. “My main focus is we got this far because the team is

doing well, not if I’m doing good or bad,” Westbrook said. Asked specifically about coach Scott Brooks opting to stick with backup Eric Maynor, Westbrook said: “He’s the head coach and he makes the decisions on the floor, and he made the best one yesterday.” Westbrook made seven of 15 shots in Game 2, up from 3of-15 in Game 1. And that was in only three quarters. He said

Friday he “thought I could’ve done a better job when I was in there.” Brooks remained highly complimentary of his starter, calling him “a tremendous player for us.” Yet that tremendous, improving player was on the bench in crunch time of the biggest game since the franchise moved to Oklahoma City, left to watch Kevin Durant, Maynor and reserves

James Harden, Nick Collison and Daequan Cook. “The group was playing good basketball,” Brooks said. “I felt last night in my heart, in my gut, that that team was deserving to finish up the game.” Harden is usually among the Thunder’s closers, and he showed why in Game 2. He scored 10 of his 23 points in the f inal quarter. Durant scored 24, down from 40 in the opener. Oklahoma City has had its way with a Dallas defense that kept the Lakers and Trail Blazers consistently scoring in the 80s, with a high of 97 points. The Thunder scored 112 in the opener. Taking fewer free throws, they scored “only” 106 in Game 2, but made 55.7 percent of their shots, matching the second-best anyone’s done against the Mavericks all season. Dallas coach Rick Carlisle said Oklahoma City also has been more opportunistic over the two games, getting to 23 loose balls and turning them into 32 points. The Mavs have snagged only 17 and turned them into only 13 points. Part of it is that the Thunder are younger and more athletic, but part of it is effort and intensity. “We won Game 1 here not playing great defense and we felt like we could just come out and outscore them and beat them,” Chandler said. “Regardless of whether we can or not, that’s not the kind of habits we need to create.”

Potential rookies bracing for lockout Leonard and Singleton are among 54 potential draftees participating in two days of pre-draft evaluations in Chicago. The last lockout occurred in 1998-99. When the two sides signed a six-year collective bargaining agreement, the NBA staged a shortened 50-game regular season that began in February 1999. Florida forward Chandler Parsons, who graduated earlier this month with a degree in telecommunications, isn’t sure what he’d do. “Right now you’re just thinking about getting drafted and getting on a team.” said Parsons, projected as a second-round pick. “It all depends on what situation you’re in — when you get picked, where you get picked, what that organization wants you to do and what your agent wants you to do. I’m going to have to sit down with my agent and decide what to do — where to work out, where to live ... It’s going to be a different experience.”

He pitched very well,” Cardinals manager Tony La Russa said. “We messed up a couple of situations on offense and couldn’t get him the lead. It could have been a different game. We just couldn’t break through. When they had a chance to have something to swing at, they made it happen.” Escobar’s hit gave the Royals 24 singles in their last 25 hits, dating to Eric Hosmer’s ninth-inning home run Wednesday night. “I don’t care,” Yost said. “As long as we’re winning.” Hosmer singled in the

fourth but was doubled off first when Jeff Francoeur flied out to right, becoming the eighth Royal in three games to make an out on the basepaths. Albert Pujols doubled with one out in the sixth and has reached base with either a hit or a walk in 45 of the 46 games he’s played against his hometown team. The Royals then intentionally walked Matt Holliday, who came in with a National League-leading .357 average. The strategy worked perfectly when Allen Craig bounced into a 6-4-3 double play on the very next pitch. “It was key right there but those decisions really are easy,” Yost said. “When you’ve got Matt Holliday — you just can’t let Matt Holliday beat you in that situation. Pujols hits a double, a base is open, that’s kind of a no-brainer. If the next guy steps up and hits a double, so be it.” Notes Royals SS Escobar made a terrific play on Pete Kozma leading off the eighth. Kozma grounded a ball to third baseman Betemit, who fumbled it, and Escobar made a barehanded pickup and an off-balance throw to get the runner at first. ... Until their 10-inning 3-2 victory over Texas on Thursday night, the Royals had not had 14 or more hits in a game without an extra base hit since Aug. 31, 2004, against Detroit. ... Carpenter retired the side on six pitches in the second inning. ... Pujols has reached safely in all 31 games he’s played in Kansas City. ... The attendance of 26,816 was probably a disappointment to the Royals, who are used to drawing more than 30,000 when they host their state rivals.

The weekend was highlighted with a ceremony opening a new 2.2 mile hiking trail around the perimeter of the camp dedicated to the memory of Arthur A. “Tripp” Anderson, a local Scout leader from Troop 59 who volunteered for many years with the Bromelsick Foundation and the annual Bromelsick Christmas Party. Anderson died in April 2010. Mike Riling, Bromelsick Foundation board member and an Eagle Scout from Troop 60, was master of ceremonies for the dedication of the new trail. Local sculptor Keith Middlemas created a large engraved limestone marker in honor of Anderson. A large metal frame gate has also been installed at the start of the trail with a sign created by Assistant Scoutmaster Jim Peterson of Troop 55, identifying the Anderson Trail. Present for the ceremonies were members of Anderson’s family, including his wife

Mary, his son John, his mother-in-law Olive Stanford, and his father, Andy Anderson. Pelathe District chairman Frank Wright and district committee member Rich Bailey also spoke to the assembled Scouts, leaders, and family at the event. The first camping use of the property was on the weekend April 9, 1961, 50 years to the day of the anniversary ceremony. The Bromelsick Foundation purchased the property to provide a camping location for Pelathe District Boy Scouts that includes troops and Cub packs in Lawrence, Eudora, Lecompton and Baldwin City. Alfred Bromelsick, a local businessman, left his entire estate to the children of Douglas County through the Boys Scouts, the Girl Scouts and the 4-H programs. The Boy Scouts used some of their estate share to purchase this property and develop it for camping. The Bromelsick property was originally a working farm dating back at least to 1859. A five-acre lake was added in 1963 and named Wertz Lake after Melvon Wertzberger, a

local conservation agent and Scout leader who helped develop the camp. Some other key leaders in the development of the property included Lowell Risk whose daughter, Janice Scribner, also spoke on Saturday, Dean Milroy, Alton Thomas, Richard Davis, Paul Hilpman, Gene Blitch, Clinton Daniels, Dr. Frank Cross, Richard Rundquist, Bob Ridgway and Austin Stedham. The Bromelsick Committee has named some of the camp areas in honor of Scout leaders who have given many years of service to the local program. Campsites have been named for Ralph Clement, George McCleary and the late Casey Jones. Other features such as roads, parking areas, open meadows and woodlands have been named for Bill Anderson, Rich Bailey, Dan Palmquist, Harrison Traul, Hans Fischer, Raymond Nichols, Keith Wood and others. As part of the new trail, the Bromelsick Committee invited Scout troops to submit names of leaders who over the years had provided significant service to Scouting, that they might also be recog-

Seventeen young men were recognized Feb. 17 for achieving the rank of Eagle Scout in 2010 and early 2011. Three other Eagle Scouts were not able to attend. The recognition was part of the 25th annual Pelathe District Eagle Scout banquet also held Feb. 17 at the Lawrence Country Club. Eagle Scouts, their families and Scout leaders enjoyed a presentation by Heart of America council executive Kenn Miller. Miller, also an Eagle Scout and an experienced life-long Scouting professional, introduced the new Eagle Scouts to some of the benefits of being an Eagle Scout. Troop 158 provided the Color Guard. The event featured guest speaker Claudine “Scottie” Lingelbach, who told stories as a young Women Available for Emergency Service (WAVE) and as the wife of

2nd Lt. Dale Lingelbach. She also talked about remembering exactly where she was on the morning of Dec. 7, the day the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor. She shared her story of carrying top secret dispatches between the Pentagon and the White House and of being in the Oval Office when President Franklin D. Roosevelt spoke to the nation on D-Day informing the country about the invasion of Normandy. She also brought Dale’s Eagle Sash, Eagle Pin and merit badge cards to share with the Eagle Scouts and their families. Eagle Scouts recognized at the event were Eric Long (Troop 52); Justin Saathoff, Connor Chestnut, William Hambleton, Ryan Schulteis and Zachary Chumbley (Troop 53); Jacob Pfeifer (Troop 55); Eric Yowell, Connor Caldwell, James Windholz, Trevor Leslie, Alex Kong, Samuel Corkins, Harrison Helmick and Colin Phillips (Troop 59); Thomas Stanley (Troop 64); Colby Soden, Brandon Baltzell and Thomas Bollig (Troop 65); and Alec Smith (Troop 158).

Inspiring words for those who lost loved ones

Dear Norbert: We think you have put some wise thoughts down on paper, and we know they will bring comfort to many. Thank you. A Time To Grieve What could have been is gone. What was is still in your memories. You’ll always think there must have been more you could have done, more times you could have said, “I love you.” Times you think, “Why didn’t I hold him more? Why didn’t I do this or that?” You did all those things. You just need to remember them. Remember the times when you held hands as you walked, when you held one another and kissed, when you shared a sunset or a walk through a garden. Remember that great vacation you had together. Remember when you made love and shared that special time. Remember how your love never dimmed but got stronger over the years.

do things, no matter how small. Don’t feel sorry for yourself — you have much to offer to others and your fellowship will give back twice as much to you. There is nothing wrong with crying. It’s part of the loss. It’s part of the grief. Accept the aching need to have him back, the need to hold him and tell him you love him. But always remember to say, “What a good life we had.” He knew you loved him and Remember when you first cared about him. Just as you met and fell in love. Then go know he loved you and cared through your life remembering the special moments, one after another. When you had children. When you laughed or cried. That trip to get away. Visiting friends. A party. Going to church. When you redecorated the house. Little things only you and he shared. Push out of your mind the memories that make you sad, and replace them immediately with good memories. Something that makes you smile. In the weeks after his passing, the relatives go on with their lives, your friends don’t call as often and you’re left alone. This is the time to be more involved with your favorite organizations, your church, your friends. In other words, keep busy. Be with other people. Push yourself to

about you. Remember, he is watching over you. He doesn’t want you to suffer. He wants you to be happy for all the time you had together. God bless you.

Weekend traditions wither away If watching network television is a habit (and it is), the networks have given folks plenty of chances to end their addiction on Saturday night. With few exceptions, including “48 Hours,” Saturday nights have become a revolving door of repeat dramas. Of all of the networks, Fox was an island of stability, airing the same police reality series for more than two decades running. All of that came to an end last Monday, when the network announced the cancellation of “America’s Most Wanted” after 23 years on the air. The series has contributed to the capture of 1,151 criminals as it became a mainstay of weekend viewing. Fox will air four “Most Wanted” specials over the course of the 20112012 season. Neither “Cops” nor “Most Wanted” will air tonight, as Fox is airing a Major League Baseball game (6 p.m., Fox). Teams vary by region, so check local listings. “Cops” will return next year, making it one of the handful of original shows left on Saturdays. In addition to “48 Hours,” CBS will move “Rules of Engagement” to Saturdays and team it up with repeat helpings of other CBS comedies. ● Despite its 23 years, “Most Wanted” is not the longest running Saturday feature. That status belongs to “Saturday Night Live” (10:30 p.m., NBC) that has endured through seasons good, bad and very bad since 1975. This season ends with Justin Timberlake hosting the show for the fourth time. Lady Gaga appears as musical guest. ● As network dominance declined on Saturday, Cable networks filled the void with marathon helpings of their reality fare. Daylong dollops of “The Real World,” “Trading Spaces” and “Project Runway” helped familiarize millions with those series, turning casual viewers into habitual abusers through sheer saturation programming. This weekend Hallmark offers a variation on the cable marathon, not with a reality show, but with a staple of family viewing from a generation ago. Catch 24 hours of “Little House on the Prairie” (5 a.m. Saturday to 5 a.m. Sunday). This series’ uplifting tales about responsibility, respect, family and community gained it fans the world over. It also featured a who’s who of actors during its run between 1974 and 1983. During the first season, director Leo Penn helmed one episode and cast his young son, giving Sean Penn his very first screen role.

Tonight’s other highlights ● Tobey Maguire, Kirsten Dunst and James Franco star in the 2007 comic book sequel “Spider-Man 3” (7 p.m., ABC). ● “Special When Lit” (7 p.m., Documentary Channel) celebrates the bygone popularity of pinball machines. ● Doppelgangers on the loose bring double trouble on “Doctor Who” (8 p.m., BBC America). ● Manu Bennett stars in the 2011 mythical fantasy “Sinbad and the Minotaur” (8 p.m., Syfy, TV-14). ● Scheduled on “48 Hours Mystery” (9 p.m., CBS): an alleged real estate swindler winds up in a morgue. ● Bill Bailey and Jennifer Hudson appear on “Graham Norton Show” (9 p.m., BBC America).

Al-Qaida eyed oil tankers as bombing targets By Eileen Sullivan and Matt Apuzzo Associated Press Writers

WASHINGTON — Osama bin Laden’s personal f iles revealed a brazen idea to hijack oil tankers and blow them up at sea last summer, creating explosions he hoped would rattle the world’s economy and send oil prices skyrocketing, the U.S. said Friday. The newly disclosed plot showed that while bin Laden was always scheming for the next big strike that would kill thousands of Americans, he also believed a relatively simpler attack on the oil industry could create a worldwide panic that would hurt Westerners every time they gassed up their cars. U.S. off icials said the tanker idea, included in documents found in the com-

pound where bin Laden was killed nearly three weeks ago, was little more than an alQaida fantasy. But the FBI and Department of Homeland Security issued a confidential warning to police and the energy industry Friday. The alert, obtained by The Associated Press, said that alQaida had sought information on the size and construction of oil tankers, had decided that spring and summer provided the best weather to approach the ships, had determined that blowing them up would be easiest from the inside and believed an explosion would create an “extreme economic crisis.” “We are not aware of indications of any specific or imminent terrorist attack plotting against the oil and natural gas sector overseas or in the United States,” Home-

land Security spokesman Matthew Chandler said in a statement Friday. “However, in 2010 there was continuing interest by members of alQaida in targeting oil tankers and commercial oil infrastructure at sea.” With about half the world’s oil supply moving on the water, industry and security experts have warned for years that such an attack would be a jolt to global markets. That’s particularly true if terrorists carried it out in one of the narrow waterways that serve as shipping chokepoints. “You start blowing up oil tankers at sea and you’re going to start closing down shipping lanes,” said Don Borelli, senior vice president of the Sufan Group security firm and a former FBI counterterrorism agent in New

York. “It’s going to cause this huge ripple through the economy.” Still, even if al-Qaida were able to blow up one of the supertankers that move oil around the globe, it would barely dent the world’s oil supply, said Jim Ritterbusch, president of Ritterbusch and Associates, who has been trading oil contracts since the futures market opened on the Nymex in 1983. A tanker holds about 2 million barrels, or enough to supply world demand for about a half hour. The terrorist threat to oil infrastructure is nothing new. Members of a British terror cell that hoped to hijack trans-Atlantic airplanes in 2006 had also made plans to attack oil and gas targets in Britain. And al-Qaida’s franchise in Yemen has attacked pipelines.

Friday’s alert was significant mostly because it linked the scheme directly to bin Laden, meaning the idea probably has circulated among al-Qaida’s most senior leaders. The government encouraged companies to continue random screening, to warn employees about possible threats and to establish procedures for reporting suspicious activity. But there was no immediate effect on oil markets, and both shippers and security officials said it was business as usual on the water. “This has been a possibility on everyone’s minds for some time now,” said Bill Box a spokesman for the International Association of Independent Tanker Owners. “Everyone is aware of what might happen.”

Prices at gas pump painful for 4 in 10 Americans By Jennifer C. Kerr and Jennifer Agiesta

Jessica Hill/AP File Photo

JOHN MAGEL PUMPS GAS at a station in Wethersfield, Conn., in this April 28 file photo. As $4 a gallon gasoline becomes commonplace, drivers have made tough choices: scaling back vacations, driving less or ditching the car altogether. And a new Associated Press-GfK poll shows the impact of sustained high prices is spreading among seniors and higher-income Americans. “You have to do what you have to do.” The public’s coping strategies are largely unchanged from March, with 72 percent having cut back on other expenses, 66 percent saying they’ve reduced the amount of driving they do and 48 percent changing vacation plans. Since January, gas prices have shot up about 90 cents, with the national average for a gallon of regular this week at $3.96. Financial analyst Nicole Polite in Baltimore sold her Nissan Altima recently and is

taking public transportation, opting for the bus, rails and walking to get to work. Gas prices were just too high, she says, so she and her boyfriend downsized to a one-car household. She says they kept their Lexus sedan, which requires pricey premium gas. “It’s definitely a financial strain because now you have to reassess everything,” said Polite, 32. “We don’t go out as much. That $20 that we could have used to go to a movie — now that money has been absorbed by the gas tank.”

But analysts say relief is coming. Fred Rozell, retail pricing director at the Oil Price Information Service, expects the price at the pump to drop as much as 40 ce n t s i n t h e n ex t fo u r weeks. Until that happens, Ross Cobb in Boerne, Texas, will still try to keep his highway miles down. Cobb says he and his wife have been driving less and curbing trips into the city for their children’s clothing and other supplies. “We coordinate all of our

trips into San Antonio,” said Cobb, an associate athletic director at the University of Texas at San Antonio. “We don’t ever go in anymore just for one particular errand. We wait until we’ve got two or three things to do.” The Associated Press-GfK Poll was conducted May 5-9 by GfK Roper Public Affairs and Corporate Communications. It involved landline and cellphone interviews with 1,001 adults nationwide and has a margin of sampling error of plus or minus 4.2 percentage points.

CDC’s ’zombie apocalypse’ preparedness advice a hit A SCREEN GRAB from the Centers for Disease Control’s Emergency Preparedness and Response social media blog webpage is shown. A public health doctor tried a zombie attack as a way to spark interest in emergency preparedness.

By Mike Stobbe Associated Press Writer

ATLANTA — “Zombie apocalypse.” That blog posting headline is all it took for a behind-the-scenes public health doctor to set off an Internet frenzy over tired old advice about keeping water and flashlights on hand in case of a hurricane. “You may laugh now, but when it happens you’ll be happy you read this, and hey, maybe you’ll even learn a thing or two about how to prepare for a real emergency,” wrote Dr. Ali Khan on the emergency preparedness blog of the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Above the post is a photo of what appears to be a dirtyfingered female zombie. Khan’s postings usually draw 1,000 to 3,000 hits in a week. This one — posted Monday — got 30,000 within a day. By Friday, it had gotten 963,000 page views and was the top item viewed on the agency’s Web site, thanks in part to media coverage that began mid-week. As of Friday morning, the traffic showed no signs of abating. “The response has been

Pope sculpture called ’ugly’ By Frances d’Emilio and Alba Tobella Associated Press Writers

Associated Press Writer

WASHINGTON — As $4 a gallon gasoline becomes commonplace, drivers have made tough choices: scaling back vacations, driving less or ditching the car altogether. And a new Associated PressGfK poll shows the impact of sustained high prices is spreading among seniors and higher-income Americans. According to the poll, the share of all Americans who say increases in the price of gasoline will cause serious financial hardship for them or their families in the next six months now tops 4 in 10. Overall, 71 percent said rising prices will cause some hardship for them and their families, including 41 percent who called it a “serious” hardship. Just 29 percent said rising prices are not causing a negative impact on their finances. While those with household incomes under $50,000 were already feeling strained in March, the new poll shows financial pain is increasingly spreading to those with higher incomes. Among those with annual household incomes over $50,000, 63 percent now say rising prices are causing them financial hardship, up from 55 percent in March. For older Americans, it’s worse. The share of seniors expressing financial hardship over gas prices hit 76 percent; it was 68 percent in March. Nettie Cash, 65, of Dallas, Ga., is cutting back on her medicine because of the cost of fueling up her Buick. Cash is still taking her heart pills but is forgoing her inhaler and ulcer medicine for now. “It’s not easy,” she said.

absolutely excellent. Most people have gotten the fact that this is tongue-andcheek,” Khan said. More important, CDC officials said, it is drawing interest from teens and young adults who otherwise would not have read a federal agency’s guidance on the importance of planning an evacuation route or how much water and what tools to store in case a major storm rolls in. The idea evolved from a CDC Twitter session with the public earlier this year about planning for disasters. Activity spiked when dozens of tweets came in from people saying they were concerned

about zombies. Dave Daigle, a veteran communications specialist, proposed the idea of using a zombie hook to spice up the hurricane message. Khan, director of emergency preparedness, approved it immediately and wrote it himself. “Most directors would have thrown me out of their office,” Daigle laughed. “Ali has a good sense of humor.” In the blog, Khan discussed what fiction has said about flesh-eating zombies and the various infectious agents that different movies have fingered as the cause. His favorite zombie flick is “Resident Evil,” but his inter-

est in unpredictable terrors is driven more by his decades of work tracking real-life infections like Ebola hemorrhagic fever, bird flu and SARS. CDC off icials said the feedback they’ve gotten is almost completely positive, including a nice note from the boss, Dr. Tom Frieden. Almost as rewarding was a nice comment Daigle said he received from his 14-year-old daughter, who has shown little interest in her dad’s work but saw the zombie post and said, “This is cool!” There have been few comments asking whether this is the best way for the government to spend tax dollars.

The agency is under a tight budget review at the moment and facing potentially serious budget cuts. But the zombie post involved no extra time or expenditure, CDC officials said. “We have a critical message to get out and that is CDC saves lives while saving money. If it takes zombies to help us get that message out, then so be it,” said agency spokesman Tom Skinner. Whether the message sticks still has to be determined. The agency is planning a follow-up survey to see if people actually did prepare emergency kits or follow Khan’s other advice. CDC deserves credit for trying something like this, said Bill Gentry, director of the community preparedness and disaster management program at the University of North Carolina’s school of public health. But that doesn’t mean the agency should start using vampires to promote vaccinations or space aliens to warn about the dangers of smoking. “The CDC is the most credible source out there for public health information,” he said. “You don’t want to risk demeaning that.”

ROME — A new, modernist sculpture of Pope John Paul II is turning into a monumental bust. The Vatican on Friday slammed the giant artwork outside Rome’s Termini Train Station, saying it doesn’t even resemble the late pontiff. Some Romans and tourists say the bronze statue looks more like Italy’s wartime dictator Benito Mussolini than the widely beloved pope. “How could they have given such a kind pope the head of a Fascist?” said 71year-old Antonio Lamonica. As he pondered the statue in the bustling square, his wife muttered: “It’s ugly. Really ugly. Very ugly.” The artist, Oliviero Rainaldi, depicted the pontiff as if he is opening his cloak to embrace the faithful. But the Vatican newspaper L’Osservatore Romano said the effect of the nearly 16-foot statue bears “only a distant resemblance to the pope.” Artistic intent aside, “we find ourselves in the piazza before a violent gash, like a bomb, that ends up assimilating a cloak that almost looks like a sentry box, topped by a head of a pope which comes off too roundish,” critic Sandro Barbagallo wrote in Friday’s L’Osservatore. “Altogether, the result doesn’t seem to reach the intent,” the newspaper said, noting that it wasn’t alone in its criticism. Rome Mayor Gianni Alemanno, asked by APTN in an exclusive interview if the city might take down the statue, said public opinion would be considered. “There’s an ancient saying: ‘Vox populi, vox dei,’” Alemanno said, using the Latin for “Voice of the people, voice of God.” “And from this point of view, we cannot help but take into consideration the opinion of the public,” he added. “If public opinion consolidates around a negative opinion, we’ll have to take that into consideration.” L’Osservatore Romano acknowledged that the statue is a modern work and called the city’s initiative to erect it “praiseworthy,” but added that “the statue’s sin” is that it is “hardly able to be recognized.” Rainaldi, in comments reported by the newspaper La Repubblica, said he was sorry his work had been misunderstood. “I wasn’t thinking about resemblance, but rather a work that was able to synthesize, in the posture of the head and body and in the draping of the cloak, the way the pope went out into the world,” Rainaldi was quoted as saying. The statue, paid for by a foundation at no cost to the city of Rome, was erected a few days ago to mark what would have been John Paul’s 91st birthday on May 18. Pope Benedict XVI beatified John Paul, the last formal step before sainthood, on May 1 at a ceremony that drew about 1.5 million admirers to Rome. The city noted that Vatican culture officials had seen a sketch of the work and approved it.
