State’s dental checkup shows no gains

RESIDENTS SALVAGE ITEMS from their home that was severely damaged by a tornado in Joplin, Mo., as a thunderstorm passes overhead Monday. The tornado that hit Sunday was the deadliest in nearly 60 years and destroyed a large part of the city of 50,000 in southwest Missouri.

Emergency personnel, Westar crews head to Reading; Red Cross collects for Joplin Staff Reports

A handful of Douglas County residents already have deployed to help with recovery in Reading, devastated by a tornado Saturday night. Teri Smith, Douglas County Emergency Management director, said two Lawrence-Douglas County Fire Medical division chiefs, Bill Stark and Sean Coffey, have been sent to Reading as part of the Northeast Kansas incident management team. Stark is the team’s incident commander, and Coffey is the planning chief. Smith said both men have been deployed several times to help in emergencies,

HOW TO HELP If you’d like to help victims of last weekend’s tornadoes, the American Red Cross is accepting donations. Jane Blocher, executive director of the Douglas County chapter, emphasizes that money is the best answer — not “stuff.” She said donations other than money actually impede disaster relief efforts. Blocher says this is how to help: ● Text REDCROSS to 90999 to make a $10 donation. A charge will appear on your cellphone bill the following month. ● Make an online donation at ● Call the local office with credit card donations. The number is 843-3550. ● Mail checks to the local office earmarked Joplin Tornado or Reading Tornado. The address is 2518 Ridge Court, Lawrence, KS 66046. Trained Red Cross volunteers from Douglas County are on standby for deployment to Reading and to Joplin, Mo.

Twenty-two states improved their grades in dental care for children over last year, but Kansas wasn’t one of them. For the second year, the Pew Charitable Trusts’ Children’s Dental Campaign rated all 50 states and the District of Columbia, and found that 27 states earned an “A” or “B”, but 23 states had a C or lower. Kansas’ “C” grade remained unchanged. “I know our grade didn’t change,” Kathy Weno, the director of the Bureau of Oral Health in the Kansas Department of Health and Environment, said Monday. She’d been informed of the state’s grade last week. Rated on eight benchmarks, Kansas met the standards on four: 1. Allowing a hygienist to apply sealants on kids’ teeth without a dentist doing an exam first. 2. Exceeding the 2007 national average of 38 percent of Medicaid-enrolled children receiving dental services. In Kansas, it was 45 percent. 3. Reimbursing providers through the state Medicaid program for preventive dental health services. 4. Tracking data on children’s dental health. But it failed on four others: 1. Dental sealant programs in at least 25 percent of high-risk schools. (Sealants prevent 60 to 70 percent of cavities.) 2. At least 75 percent of the state’s residents on community water systems with fluoridated water. Kansas dropped from 65 to 45 percent. Lawrence fluoridates its water.

At unexpected time, place, triplets arrive Delivery is first of its kind at LMH in at least 25 years By Chad Lawhorn

When you’re the mother of three babies, you had better get used to changing plans. Johanna Thomas found that out from the very beginning. The plan all along had been for Thomas to deliver her triplets at the Kansas University Hospital, which is one of the area hospitals specially equipped to deal with triplet births. But then she woke up early Monday morning with labor pains. She called her nurse at KU Med, who said it would be best to get a quick checkup at the Lawrence Memorial Hospital emergency room before trying to travel to Kansas City.

The LMH diagnosis was clear. “They said we were going to have a lot of babies in a little bit of time,” Thomas recalled from her hospital room Monday afternoon. Thomas arrived at LMH at 1:30 a.m. and by 4:30 a.m. had been prepped and taken to a Caserean section operating room. All three babies were brought into the world before 4:40 a.m. With them came a little bit of LMH history. The delivery marked the first time in at least 25 years that the hospital had delivered triplets, Belinda Rehmer, a spokeswoman for the hospital, said. Thomas said it was quite a scene from her vantage point as well. She Please see TRIPLETS, page 2A

Walter, a loving father and special friend, will be greatly missed. Walter was born July 17, 1921 in East Providence, Rhode Island, the son of Alfred H. and Mary E. (Whitehead) Lister.

said she was told that there were 14 staff members in the room to attend to all the specialized procedures required for multiple births. The three babies — two girls and a boy — were born with healthy birth weights ranging from 5 pounds, 15 ounces to 6 pounds, 1 ounce. The boy was breathing with the help of oxygen on Monday, but Thomas said he was no longer expected to need that by today. The biggest issue, perhaps, was that Thomas and the babies’ father, Jason Whitewater, hadn’t yet figured out what to name all of them. Thomas admitted that she did feel uneasy about the change of delivery plans at first. “I was unsure in the beginning, but the doctor made me comfortable with everything,” Thomas said. “They were great, and they seemed really excited to do it.” And now, it seems appropriate that this new chapter in Thomas’ life started with a change. After all, she went from being a mother of two to being a mother of five in a matter of moments. “When we first learned we were having triplets, it was scary,” said Thomas, who said the triplets weren’t the result of fertility drugs or any similar efforts. “But we always say everything happens for a reason. “Now it is so exciting. When I saw them this morning, I fell in love all over again.” — City reporter Chad Lawhorn can be reached at 832-6362. Follow him at

She has been teaching since 1998. “It’s awesome,” said Jennifer Day, a Title I reading paraeducator, who was standing next to Babin as the winner’s name was announced. “She deserves it completely.” Jared Comfort, Schwegler principal, said that Babin had played a “critical role” in several initiatives: developing a plan for implementation of a student data warehouse, helping provide professional development to teachers, and supporting teachers in the review and analysis of student data to gauge instructional impact on a regular basis. “Her instruction is always data-based, and she monitors student progress frequently to ensure instruction is meet-

state’s big outlier. 3. Paying dentists who treat Medicaid-enrolled children the 2008 national average of 60.5 percent of dentists’ median retail fees. Kansas pays 55 percent. 4. Dental therapists who could treat people in the 91 Kansas counties that don’t have enough dentists, and the 14 that don’t have dentists at all, much the same as nurse practitioners do in medical practice. Kansas has not passed a law that allows this. “There are a lot of things that we are working on,” said Weno, who expects to see a higher grade for Kansas in next year’s assessment. The state, she says, has had some serious catching up to do. Despite a law enacted in 1912 that requires every school child to have a dental screening every year, Kansas at some point forgot about it. In 2005, the Bureau of Oral Health was resurrected, and Weno and her staff have been busy setting up a statewide system to provide dental health screenings. She estimates that 120,000 children will have screenings this year. — Jane Stevens, director of media strategies, can be reached at 832-7215.

U.S. senator calls for action to fix deficit 1 | CALIFORNIA

California ordered to cut prison inmates The U.S. Supreme Court ruled Monday that California must drastically reduce its prison population to relieve severe overcrowding that has exposed inmates to increased violence, disease and death. The decision, however, doesn’t mean the prison gates will swing open in an uncontrolled release. The high court’s decision calls on the state to cut the population to no more than 110,000 inmates, meaning California will have to shed some 33,000 inmates to comply over the next two years. State officials can accomplish that by transferring inmates to local jails or releasing them. The court order came in a 5-4 ruling. 2 | NEW YORK CITY

DNA in sex attack matches IMF chief Test results returned Monday found that DNA from former International Monetary Fund leader Dominique Strauss-Kahn matched material on the work clothes of a Manhattan hotel maid who says he attacked her, two people familiar with the investigation told The Associated Press. The two people would not describe the material found on the shirt, but said DNA matched a sample from Strauss-Kahn, who submitted to testing after his arrest more than a week ago. He denies the charges. The two people said additional testing was being performed on other items. They were not authorized to speak publicly about the matter and spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity. During their investigation, authorities cut out a piece of carpet and swabbed sinks and other surfaces in his hotel room. Investigators told the AP they believed the carpet in the hotel room may contain Strauss-Kahn’s semen, spat out after an episode of forced oral sex by the maid. 3 | PAKISTAN

Troops retake naval base from militants Pakistani commandos recaptured a major naval base from Taliban attackers after a bloody and humiliating 18-hour standoff that raised questions about militant infiltration in the security services and the safety of the volatile country’s nuclear warheads. The unusually brazen assault, which the Taliban said was to avenge the killing of Osama bin Laden, was a reminder that the Pakistanis are catching blame from both sides in the aftermath of the May 2 raid by U.S. commandos. While Americans have accused elements in the Pakistani security services of having sheltered bin Laden in the military town of Abbottabad, the Taliban and al-Qaida fault the army for its level of cooperation with the Americans. It was the third purported revenge strike in Pakistan since bin Laden’s death. 4 | WEST BANK

Palestinian U.N. bid thrown a twist President Barack Obama threw down a gauntlet this weekend: no vote at the United Nations, he asserted, would ever create a Palestinian state. The Palestinians hope to prove him wrong. But their planned bid for U.N. recognition this fall of a state in the West Bank, Gaza and east Jerusalem — territories occupied by Israel since the 1967 Mideast war — enters largely unknown legal ground, and the Palestinians are still trying to work out how best to work the U.N. labyrinth. By a strict reading of U.N rules, an American veto at the Security Council — which appears likely — would seem to derail any attempt to win recognition of Palestine as a U.N. member from the General Assembly, where there is widespread sympathy for the Palestinian cause. Never before has the assembly taken on a new member state without a nod from the council. 5 | DUBLIN

Obama begins Europe trip in Ireland He downed a pint of Guinness with a distant cousin and checked out centuries-old parish records tracing his family to Ireland. From the tiny village of Moneygall to a huge, cheering crowd in Dublin, President Barack Obama opened his four-nation trip through Europe on Monday with an unlikely homecoming far removed from the grinding politics of Washington and the world. Obama’s feel-good indulgence in Ireland came at the start of a four-country, six-day trip that is bound to get into stickier matters as he goes. The only hitch on day one was the threat of a volcanic ash cloud from Iceland that led the president to leave Ireland without even a night’s stay and land in England on Monday night. His high point in Ireland was a helicopter jaunt to Moneygall, where the president’s great-great-great grandfather, Falmouth Kearney, was born and where thousands congregated to welcome the United States’ first black president home.


Officials: Cuts will threaten students’ success By Scott Rothschild

U.S. SEN. JERRY MORAN LAUGHS DURING A MEETING with Lawrence residents, hosted by the Lawrence Chamber of Commerce at the Lawrence Public Library. Moran came to Lawrence to talk about his opinions on various issues including health care, immigration and conflicts overseas, in addition to taking questions.

hour before heading back to Washington. He had come to Lawrence directly from surveying tornado damage in Reading in Lyon County. The senator told the Lawrence crowd, which included KU Chancellor Bernadette Gray-Little, it was easier to explain to them why he was in boots and jeans than it would have been to tell Reading residents why he was wearing a KU tie with a suit. In response to a question about the extension of the Bush tax cuts contributing to the deficit, Moran said that he would be in favor of an overhaul to simplify the tax code, and that he feared any increase in taxes would lead to higher spending. “My guess is you would not see a reduction in the deficit that corresponded with that increase in taxes,” Moran said.

T O P E K A — While Gov. Sam Brownback and other Republicans praised the state budget, education officials say the $100 million in cuts to schools will jeopardize student performance. “It is important for school leaders, parents, patrons and state officials to understand the impact of the downward spiral in education funding,” John Heim, executive director of the Kansas Association of School Boards, said recently. “There is no way to avoid the fact this budget will damage the programs that have helped more students reach higher levels of achievement, and create the need for significant reductions in staff.” Under the budget proposal approved by the Legislature this month and on Brownback’s desk, base state aid will be cut $232 per student to a 10-year low of $3,780 per student. That is 5.8 percent lower than last year and 14 percent below 2008-09 when cutting started as the recession unfolded. General funding per pupil, which includes additional funds for special education, bilingual, vocational programs and transportation, will be $6,474 per pupil, which is 11 percent less than four years ago. Heim said school boards across the state will be forced to cut more personnel, close schools, raise fees and use

Moran talks spending cuts on Lawrence visit “

By George Diepenbrock

If we don’t do something now, our country really will be broke, and so there are dire consequences to not doing something in regards to spending and in regards to the deficit.”

U.S. Sen. Jerry Moran said Monday that spending cuts needed to be part of a congressional deal to increase the country’s debt ceiling in coming months. “If we don’t do something now, our country really will be broke, and so there are dire consequences to not doing something in regards to spending and in regards to the deficit,” Moran said after talking to a group of about 80 people at Lawrence Chamber of Commerce event at the Lawrence Public Library, 707 Vt. The U.S. Treasury Department has given Congress an Aug. 2 deadline to raise the federal government’s debt ceiling without risking a default, and Obama administration officials

— U.S. Sen. Jerry Moran are involved with trying to work out a deal with Congress. Moran, a Kansas University graduate who is serving his first term in the Senate after seven terms in the House, said during his town hall meetings in 56 counties he has heard concerns from Kansans about government spending plus other economic issues like high gasoline prices and jobs. Moran wore a plaid shirt, jeans and boots in Lawrence as he took questions for nearly an


Light bulb switches give Lawrence lead in contest By Christine Metz

The light bulb is starting to go off for residents across Lawrence. In this case, incandescent light bulbs are literally being turned off and replaced by compact fluorescent lights. Since January, Lawrence residents have switched close to 13,500 light bulbs to compact fluorescent ones. The number is enough to put Lawrence ahead of Manhattan in the Take Charge Challenge for the first time since the friendly competition started at the beginning of the year. Manhattan has changed 7,545 light bulbs to CFLs. “We’ve been progressive in

this area for a while. And now it shows,” said Margaret Tran, who is the coordinator for Take Charge Challenge in Lawrence. The winner of the competition, which ends in September and is sponsored by the Kansas Energy Office, receives $100,000 to spend on an energy-efficiency or renewable energy project. Changing light bulbs is one of several steps that residents are being asked to take to make their homes more energy efficient. As of now, Lawrence leads in

two of the three categories: ● One measures changes made to the whole house. ● The other focuses on lighting efficiencies. ● The city still lags behind in the third category of community participation. In recent months, those on Lawrence’s Take Charge Challenge leadership team have made several efforts to help nudge residents to switch their light bulbs. They have handed out free CFL bulbs at community events, such as the Lawrence Earth Day celebration. On Saturday, the Take Charge Challenge leadership team will be at two events: ● The Downtown Lawrence Farmers’ Market, 800 block of

New Hampshire Street, between 7 a.m. and 11 a.m. ● The Art Tougeau Block Party, 900 block of New Hampshire, from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m. The leadership team also has worked with local retailers to offer deals on CFL light bulbs. For the month of April, ES Lighting offered a four pack of 60-watt equivalent CFL bulbs for $4, which was more than half-off the normal cost. Until the end of September, Cottin’s Hardware will take 10 percent off all CFL lights. Tran said more deals are in the works.

LAW ENFORCEMENT REPORT • Douglas County prosecutors Monday charged a 27-year-old Lawrence man with one count of being a felon in possession of a firearm related to an incident early Saturday near 19th Street and Ousdahl Road. The defendant, Dennis S. Nazarenko, was charged because prosecutors alleged that he possessed a gun during an altercation and that Nazarenko had a past felony drug possession conviction in the last 10 years, which made it illegal for him to possess the gun. Police have said Nazarenko and another man got into an verbal altercation with an acquaintance around 2:30 a.m. A gun was fired at one point, but no one was injured. A judge Monday set Nazarenko’s bond at $5,000, cash or surety, and he remained at the Douglas County Jail Monday evening. His co-defendant posted $5,000 bond Saturday after his arrest on an aggravated assault charge. He was given notice to appear in court June 3, and prosecutors have not yet filed official charges in that case. The Journal-World generally does not identify suspects unless they are officially charged.

• A city employee made a police report for a parking meter valued at $1,000 that was stolen between 5 p.m. Thursday and 11 a.m. Saturday from 11 E. Eighth St. • A 33-year-old Lawrence woman reported someone had stolen her 2008 Yamaha motorcycle valued at $7,000 and damaged the ignition lock on the motorcycle. The theft occurred between 11 p.m. Saturday and 11 a.m. Sunday in the 2400 block of West 24th Terrace.

The Journal-World does not print accounts of all police reports filed. The newspaper generally reports: • Burglaries, only with a loss of $1,000 or more, unless there are unusual circumstances. To protect victims, we generally don’t identify them by name. • The names and circumstances of people arrested, only after they are charged. • Assaults and batteries, only if major injuries are reported. • Holdups and robberies.

Board OKs $250K outlay for school resources By Mark Fagan

The Lawrence school district will spend nearly $250,000 for new books and other materials, as the district moves forward with its plans for creating middle schools and four-year high schools. Monday night, members of the Lawrence school board approved spending $249,767 on textbooks and other resources entering the 2011-12 school year. The district typically wouldn’t spend that much on such resources, but the coming year is considered unusual because of the district’s implementation of its Redesigning for Student Success plan, said Kim Bodensteiner, chief academic officer. Under the plan, elementary schools will be for grades K-5; middle schools will be for grades 6-8; and high schools will be for grades 912. Then again, the district spent even more for the past academic year, as it implemented its new Math Expres-

sions curriculum in all elementary schools. “These purchases will be viable resources for many years,” Bodensteiner said. In other action, board members agreed to: ● Hire contractors to add doors in the cafeteria at Free State High School, for $22,620; add a wall separating what had been this year’s sixth-grade pod into two classrooms for the next school year at Broken Arrow School, for $12,087; and knock down a wall to expand the computer lab at Langston Hughes School, for $3,473. ● Buy new cafeteria equipment, for $109,870, for use at both high schools. ● Buy new lockers, for $58,107, at Lawrence High School: 252 for use in hallways and another 414 for use in physical education classes. New lockers for Free State already have been approved and are on order: $45,408 for 288 additional hall lockers. — Schools reporter Mark Fagan can be reached at 832-7188. Follow him at

State pays $219K defending Kline in discrimination lawsuits

By Nick Nelson

Tara Kraft, graduate student, clinical psychology, North Dakota “Warm, chocolate, melting cake.”


W A S H I N G T O N — A dispute over a plan to send oil from western Canada to the Texas Gulf Coast moved to Capitol Hill on Monday, where a House panel debated whether to speed a decision by the Obama administration. Republicans on the House Energy and Commerce Committee are backing a bill that would set a Nov. 1 deadline for the State Department to decide on the $7 billion project. A Canadian company wants to build a 1,900-mile pipeline to carry crude oil extracted from tar sands in Alberta, Canada, to refineries in Texas. Rep. Fred Upton, R-Mich., who chairs the energy panel, said it makes sense to pursue reliable and affordable energy in North America. The proposed Keystone XL pipeline would create thousands of jobs and help cut $4a-gallon prices at the pump, Upton said. “We need to act soon as China is very interested in pursuing the same resources,” Upton said. “If we don’t say yes soon, China will lock it up.” But environmental groups say the pipeline would bring “dirty oil” that requires huge amounts of energy to extract and could cause an ecological disaster in the event of a spill. The pipeline planned by Calgary-based TransCanada would travel through five U.S. states — Montana, South Dakota, Nebraska, Kansas and Oklahoma — before reaching refineries in Houston and Port Arthur, Texas. The project would double the capacity of an existing pipeline from Canada, and

supporters say it could significantly reduce U.S. dependence on Middle Eastern oil.

Ogallala Aquifer concerns The State Department said last month that a new environmental study on the pipeline revealed no new issues since a similar report was issued last year. The State Department has authority over the pipeline because it crosses an international boundary. Off icials have pledged to decide on the project by the end of the year. Environmental groups said the State Department report glossed over crucial issues such as pipeline safety and the risks posed by the proposed route over the massive Ogallala Aquifer, which supplies drinking water to people in eight U.S. states. The environmental group Friends of the Earth filed suit against the State Department last week, seeking details of any communications between a TransCanada lobbyist and the Obama administration. The lobbyist, Paul Elliott, was a top aide in the 2008 presidential campaign of Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton. Friends of the Earth said it wants to learn whether Elliott’s role in the project has resulted in a possible conflict

of interest at the State Department.

Koch Industries link Democrats on the energy panel, meanwhile, questioned whether energy giant Koch Industries could profit from the pipeline’s approval. The Kansas-based company, owned by billionaire brothers David and Charles Koch, has said it has no financial interest in the pipeline. But Reps. Henry Waxman of California and Bobby Rush of Illinois said news reports indicate that the company is developing projects to refine oil produced from the pipeline and would be a potential buyer for crude shipped through the pipeline. Liberal groups have targeted the Koch brothers because of their prominent support of conservative political causes, including fights against legislation that targets industrial emissions blamed for global warming. Republicans called Democratic claims about the Koch brothers a sideshow. “This is not about personalities,” said Rep. Ed Whitfield, R-Ky., chairman of the energy and power subcommittee. “This is about the project and its benefit or lack of benefit to the American people.”

T O P E K A ( AP ) — Lawsuits filed against the administrations of Phill Kline while he served as attorney general and Johnson County district attorney have cost the state of Kansas $748,659 in legal fees and expenses. The Topeka Capital Journal reported Monday that the total includes nearly $220,000 through mid-February to defend Kline’s Johnson County District Attorney’s administration from a lawsuit alleging sexual discrimination. Senior prosecutor Jacqie Spradling alleged that she was fired from the office in retaliation for her complaints of sexual discrimination. The Spradling case cost the $219,172 in fees and expenses, according to records from the attorney general’s off ice obtained by the Capital-Journal through an open records request. Other legal fees paid by the state to defend Kline administrations include $403,528 in an ongoing ethics case before the Board for Discipline of Attorneys and $125,959 to defend Kline aides Eric Rucker and Stephen Maxwell in their ethics cases. Rucker and Maxwell worked in the Kline administrations while he was attorney general and district attorney. In the Spradling case, attorneys hired by the state have denied any sexual discrimination or retaliation against Spradling. Her dismissal was a “legitimate business decision” according to attorneys with Holbrook and Osborn in Overland Park. That firm also is representing Kline in the ethics case. Kansas law requires the attorney general to provide a defense and the state to pay legal fees for state officials and employees who are defendants in lawsuits based on the Kansas Tort Claims

Act. Employees who lose lawsuits don’t have to pay back the attorney fees to the state. Spradling Kline is represented by private attorneys is “not under the provisions of the Kansas Tort Claims Act,” assistant attorney general Lisa A. Mendoza said in response to a Capital-Journal request for how much the state might have paid to represent Spradling. Spradling now is the Shawnee County chief deputy district attorney prosecuting homicides and other serious offenses. A disciplinary panel heard testimony for eight days in February and March tied to Kline’s handling of investigations of abortion providers in Kansas. A four-day hearing will start on July 19 on the second count, in which the disciplinary administrator’s office alleges Kline misled a Johnson County grand jury investigating an abortion clinic. The ethics panel won’t decide either allegation until the entire case is over. Kline currently is a visiting professor of law at the Liberty University law school in Lynchburg, Va.

Federal judicial nomination hearing for former state A.G. set for today By George Diepenbrock

Lawrence attorney and former Kansas Attorney General Steve Six is scheduled to face questions from Senate Judiciary Committee members this afternoon in Washington about his nomination to the federal appellate bench. According to the committee’s confirmation hearing schedule, Six’s hearing is scheduled to begin at 1:30 p.m. central time today in the Dirksen Senate Office Building. The committee has a webcast of its hearings available on its website at President Barack Obama nominated Six, a Democrat, in March to serve on the U.S. 10th Circuit Court of Appeals to replace another Lawrence resident, Judge Deanell Reece Tacha, who was named Pepperdine University’s law school dean and is scheduled to start at the California school June 1. Six would need to be confirmed by the U.S. Senate. Six, who grew up in Lawrence and earned a Kansas University law degree, last November lost his attorney general election bid to Derek Schmidt, and he has been working since Janu-

ary as a partner at the Lawrence firm Stevens & Brand. Then-Gov. Kathleen Sebelius appointed Six Six in January 2008 to serve as the state’s attorney general after Paul Morrison resigned amid a sex scandal. Before that Six, 45, was a Douglas County District Court judge from 2005 to 2008. Neither of Kansas’ two U.S. senators, Republicans Pat Roberts and Jerry Moran, serve on the judiciary committee, and neither have taken a public stance on Six’s nomination. But today’s hearing would not have been scheduled had there been active opposition from the nominee’s home state senators, a committee spokeswoman and experts said Monday. Carl Tobias, a University of Richmond law professor who follows the federal judiciary, said the senators may be waiting to see what kinds of questions come up during the hearing. “It would certainly help if he did have their endorsement,” Tobias. “Maybe they

are being cautious and wanting to see what turns up in the hearing. I don’t think he is particularly controversial.” The anti-abortion group Operation Rescue issued a statement Monday opposing Six’s nomination, calling him a “Sebelius puppet” though other opposition hasn’t been apparent. Six has been praised by attorneys who cite his integrity and legal abilities. An American Bar Association committee has rated Six as “well qualified” for the position. Moran, also a KU law school graduate, said Monday the hearing is the first step in the nomination process. The senator, who was in Lawrence for a talk with constituents, said he hadn’t decided whether to support Six’s nomination. “I assume at some point in time Judge Six and I will have a conversation,” Moran said. The U.S. 10th Circuit Court of Appeals is based in Denver, and its judges hear appeals in federal cases that originate in Kansas, Colorado, Oklahoma, New Mexico, Utah and Wyoming. — Reporter George Diepenbrock can be reached at 832-7144.

The Lawrence school district is looking at cuts of $3 million in the coming school year, compared with CONTINUED FROM PAGE 3A $4.6 million this year, and $3 million in the previous emergency reserves. Since year. the 2008-09 school year, districts have cut 2,295 positions, about 3 percent of the total. In addition, the budget will cut Kan-Ed, the program that provides Internet connectivity and technology support for schools, colleges, libraries and hospitals, from $10 million per year to $6 million per year. Brownback, a Republican, is expected to sign the budget into law. The measure was passed earlier this month with only Republican support, and the base state aid per pupil level is what


Moran also addressed questions on: ● Libya and presidential military powers: “My general belief is that Congress ought to have a significant say unless it’s a defensive action before our military is engaged,” he said. Earlier Moran had said that the executive branch had assumed too much power

Brownback had proposed at the state of the legislative session. Supporters of the budget plan said it was the best that could be done with the state facing a projected $500 million revenue shortfall in the fiscal year that starts July 1. “We got right to work on balancing the state budget and in conjunction with the Kansas Legislature, took the more than $500 million deficit and turned it into a $50 million ending balance that prioritizes the core functions

of government,” Brownback said after the budget was approved. The Lawrence school district is looking at cuts of $3 million in the coming school year, compared with $4.6 million this year, and $3 million in the previous year. Planned cuts in Lawrence include closing Wakarusa Valley School, eliminating two teaching positions and using contingency funds.

related to military action and that Congress needed to assert itself more, especially with a debate over a resolution about whether it was “the proper course for our country or not” to be militarily involved in Libya. ● Health care: He did not support the Democratic health care overhaul in 2010 and said he didn’t believe it was working at reducing health care costs. But Moran did say Congress should address things like medical malpractice lawsuits and

more effective medical records technology. “There’s an election in 2012 that determines the outcome of health care reform,” he said. ● Alternative energy: “We need to be thinking about this long term, as opposed to a sound bite for the next election,” Moran said.

City to hear Lawrence Freenet proposal on new fiber optic cable By Chad Lawhorn

City commissioners tonight will consider a $30,000 offer from the operators of Lawrence Freenet that could shake up the competitive landscape among area Internet service providers. Commissioners will consider a deal with Lawrencebased Community Wireless Corp. to allow the company access to a new fiber optic cable that the city will install along 23rd Street. Community Wireless is proposing to pay the city $30,000 to use about 10 percent of the capacity of a new fiber optic cable that will be installed as part of a project to synchronize 23rd Street traffic signals. The city is set to receive a $150,000 state grant for the project, but it must come up with $30,000 in local funding to match the grant. “We feel like we can save the city some money,” said Joshua Montgomery, founder of Community Wireless. “And this project would allow us to expand dramatically and increase competition in the Internet service market, which we think will benefit consumers.” Lawrence Freenet primarily provides service to apartment complexes, fraternity and sorority houses, and other group living areas. Montgomery said access to the new fiber optic cable would be the “backbone” for a multiyear expansion that would allow the company to be more competitive in providing service to single-family homes. Community Wireless also is proposing to pay the city 5

Attorney for ex-youth minister to ask judge to dismiss indecent liberties case Staff Reports

An attorney for a former Lawrence church youth leader who was awarded a new trial by an appellate court plans to ask a Douglas County judge to dismiss the case entirely. Hatem Chahine, appointed counsel for Christopher Cormack, told District Judge Robert Fairchild in court Monday he was working on a motion for dismissal based on the state’s statute of limitations. A jury in 2008 convicted Cormack, a one-time youth ministry coordinator at Trinity Lutheran Church, on one

count of aggravated indecent liberties with a child for having a sexual relationship with an underage girl. The girl testified the relationship lasted for more than two years beginning in 1999 when she was 15 and Cormack was 28. A Kansas Court of Appeals panel earlier this year ruled Cormack deserved a new trial because the jury instructions did not require jurors to unanimously agree on a specific instance when Cormack may have had sexual intercourse with the girl when she was still 15. Chahine said Monday that he was still doing research but he believed the charges

should have been filed in the case by 2006 or within five years of when the last alleged criminal act occurred. At trial, Cormack admitting to having intercourse with the girl but said all the acts occurred after she was 16. The girl came forward with allegations several years later when she heard Cormack was returning to Kansas to become a pastor. Prosecutors filed charges in 2008. The two sides are expected to argue the motion June 28, and Fairchild also scheduled a new trial date for Sept. 6. Cormack remains free on bond.

Joplin death toll rises to 116 as rescuers dig for survivors By Alan Scher Zagier and Jim Salter Associated Press Writer

JOPLIN, MO. — Rescue crews dug through piles of splintered houses and crushed cars Monday in a search for victims of a half-mile-wide tornado that killed at least 116 people when it blasted much of this Missouri town off the map and slammed straight into its hospital. It was the nation’s deadliest single twister in nearly 60 years and the second major tornado disaster in less than a month. Authorities feared the toll could rise as the full scope of the destruction comes into view: house after house reduced to slabs, cars crushed like soda cans, shaken residents roaming streets in search of missing family members. And the danger was by no means over. Fires from gas leaks burned across town, and more violent weather loomed, including the threat of hail, high winds and even more tornadoes. At daybreak, the city’s south side emerged from darkness as a barren, smoky wasteland. “I’ve never seen such devastation — just block upon block upon block of homes just completely gone,” said former state legislator Gary Burton who showed up to help at a volunteer center at

Missouri Southern State University. Unlike the multiple storms that killed more than 300 people last month across the South, Joplin was smashed by just one exceptionally powerful tornado. Not since a June 1953 tornado in Flint, Mich., had a single twister been so deadly. That storm also killed 116, according to the National Weather Service. Authorities were prepared to find more bodies in the rubble throughout this gritty, blue-collar town of 50,000 people about 160 miles south of Kansas City. Gov. Jay Nixon told The Associated Press he did not want to guess how high the death toll would eventually climb. But he said: “Clearly, it’s on its way up.” Seventeen people were pulled alive from the rubble. An unknown number of people were hurt. While many residents had up to 17 minutes of warning, rain and hail may have drowned out the sirens. Larry Bruffy said he heard the first warning but looked out from his garage and saw nothing. “Five minutes later, the second warning went off,” he said. “By the time we tried to get under the house, it already went over us.” As rescuers toiled in the debris, a strong thunderstorm lashed the crippled

city. Rescue crews had to move gingerly around downed power lines and jagged chunks of debris as they hunted for victims and hoped for survivors. Fires, gas fumes and unstable buildings posed constant threats. Teams of searchers fanned out in waves across several square miles. The groups went door to door, making quick checks of property that in many places had been stripped to their foundations or had walls collapse. National Weather Service Director Jack Hayes said the storm was given a preliminary label as an EF4 — the second-highest rating assigned to twisters based on the damage they cause. Hayes said the storm had winds of 190 to 198 mph. At times, it was three-quarters of a mile wide. Some of the most startling damage was at St. John’s Regional Medical Center, where staff had only moments to hustle their patients into the hallway. Six people died there, five of them patients, plus one visitor. The storm blew out hundreds of windows and caused damage so extensive that doctors had to abandon the hospital soon after the twister passed. A crumpled helicopter lay on its side in the parking lot near a single twisted mass of metal that used to be cars.

Brownback tours damage in Reading By John Milburn Associated Press Writer

T O P E K A — Utility crews were working Monday to restore power to the small town of Reading after it was struck over the weekend by a tornado with estimated winds of up to 165 mph. The storm claimed one life as it moved through a corridor of northeast Kansas, causing extensive damage to Reading, a town of about 250 residents some 50 miles south of Topeka. Sharon Watson, spokeswoman for the Kansas Division of Emergency Management, said crews from Westar Energy hoped to have electricity restored by the end of the day to 30 percent of the residents. Water and sewer service was out for all residents and no timetable was set for getting the functions restored. Authorities have identified the person killed as 53-yearold Don Chesmore, who was in a mobile home that flipped over. He was taken to a hospital in Emporia, where he was pronounced dead. The storm system brought tornadoes, hail, wind and rain. Watson said damage assessment teams concluded that 110 residences and other private buildings were damaged, with 26 being destroyed and 30 uninhabitable. Some 21 commercial buildings, including the school, were damaged, with 10 destroyed and four deemed uninhabitable. A preliminary damage assessment placed the destruction at more than $2.2 million. Watson said residents are

It was one of those deals where you didn’t know what the person on the other end was going to say,” Lee said. A little relief was on the other end of that call. His sister’s shift at the hospital had ended just an hour before the tornado hit. Lee, a program director and operations manager for 92.9 The Bull in Lawrence, worked in Joplin for six years as a radio DJ and had both of her kids there. She was able to contact just about all of her friends in the city and reported they were all OK. “When you’re talking to them yesterday ... they were

receiving plenty of assistance from around the region and asked that volunteers call 211, a hot line established through the United Way, so the assistance can be coordinated. “There have been a large number of volunteers. We really appreciate the support from Kansans,” she said. “Cleanup is certainly the biggest job ahead for residents and the community as a whole.” A center in Emporia processed between 90 and 100 volunteers, and some had to be turned away. Mike Dorcey, chairman of the group managing the volunteer effort, acknowledged that the Kansas disaster quickly became overshadowed by the storm that hit Joplin, Mo., and killed at least 116 people. “But we’re not jealous,” he said. “This is one battle we’ll lose.” State and local officials, including Gov. Sam Brownback and Lt. Gov. Jeff Colyer, toured the Reading area by ground and air Monday to see

the damage. Brownback had flown to California on Saturday to participate in a national wind energy conference, where he planned to give a speech. But he flew back Sunday because of the tornado in Reading. He issued a disaster declaration on Sunday for 16 counties seeking federal assistance dealing with tornado and severe thunderstorm damage. U.S. Rep. Tim Huelskamp, who represents the 1st District in Congress, says Monday that volunteers are helping residents clean up and begin recovering from the storm. Huelskamp’s district staff was also surveying the damage. Watson said a damage figure hadn’t been determined Monday. It was unclear if the storm would meet the $3 million threshold level that could trigger federal assistance. However, Brownback said he would seek emergency loans through the Small Business Administration to assist residents.

You just say ‘Oh God, oh God, oh God’ and ‘are you sure soand-so’s OK? Are you sure so-and-so’s OK?’ Undescribable.” Jerry Banks, a Kansas University junior from Toronto, Kan., has two aunts and several cousins who live in Joplin. Banks first saw the news of the storm on Twitter and called his parents to let them know. His father was able to reach the rest of the family to confirm their safety and said one aunt’s house was one of two in its neighborhood that was not destroyed. Despite Banks’ profession-

al interests — he’s an atmospheric science major — his thoughts on the disaster are like anyone else’s. “I hate seeing devastation like I’ve been seeing down there and Tuscaloosa (Ala.),” said Banks. For those in Lawrence who want to help, Lee is collecting items to haul down to Joplin. Donations, including bottled water, extension cords, clothing, blankets, towels and other items, can be dropped off at the radio station, 3125 W. Sixth St., before Thursday. Zarco 66 has donated the use of a semi-truck to haul everything, which will leave the Zarco station at 1500 E. 23rd St. on Thursday.

Eudora Police Chief Grady Walker said his department would be sending one officer to assist in Reading, but the officer’s visit had not yet been scheduled on Monday. Nick Bundy, a Westar Energy spokesman, said a Lawrencebased crew was in Reading

helping repair damage. Smith said Douglas County residents who want to help tornado victims in Reading or Joplin, Mo., should donate to the American Red Cross instead of trying to ship donations, such as food and clothing directly. “Cash donations are really truly the best way because (emergency management leaders) are able to purchase what they need,” Smith said.

Poll: Most think Medicare doesn’t need to be cut By Ricardo Alonso-Zaldivar and Stephen Ohlemacher Associated Press Writers

WASHINGTON — They’re not buying it. Most Americans say they don’t believe Medicare has to be cut to balance the federal budget, and ditto for Social Security, a new poll shows. The Associated Press-GfK poll suggests that arguments for overhauling the massive benefit programs to pare government debt have failed to sway the public. The debate is unlikely to be resolved before next year’s elections for president and Congress. Americans worry about the future of the retirement safety net, the poll found, and 3 out of 5 say the two programs are vital to their basic financial security as they age. That helps explain why the Republican Medicare privatization plan flopped, and why President Barack Obama’s Medicare cuts to finance his health care law contributed to Democrats losing control of the House in last year’s elections. Medicare seems to be turning into the new third rail of politics. “I’m pretty conf ident Medicare will be there, because there would be a rebellion among voters,” said Nicholas Read, 67, a retired teacher who lives near Buffalo, N.Y. “Republicans only got a hint of that this year. They got burned. They touched the hot stove.” Combined, Social Security and Medicare account for about a third of government spending, a share that will only grow. Economic experts say the cost of retirement programs for an aging society is the most serious budget problem facing the nation. The trustees who oversee Social

Security and Medicare recently warned the programs are “not sustainable” over the long run under current financing. Nearly every solution for Social Security is politically toxic because the choices involve cutting benefits or raising taxes. Medicare is even harder to fix because the cost of modern medicine is going up faster than the overall cost of living, outpacing economic growth as well as tax revenues. “Medicare is an incredibly complex area,” said former Sen. Judd Gregg, R-N.H., who used to chair the Budget Committee. “It’s a matrix that is almost incomprehensible. Unlike Social Security, which has four or five moving parts, Medicare has hundreds of thousands. There is no single approach to Medicare, whereas with Social Security everyone knows where the problem is.” That’s not what the public sees, however. “It’s more a matter of bungling, and lack of oversight, and waste and fraud, and padding of the bureaucracy,” said Carolyn Rodgers, who lives near Memphis, Tenn., and is still working as a legal assistant at 74. “There is no reason why even Medicare, if it had been handled right, couldn’t have been solvent.” In the poll, 54 percent said it’s possible to balance the budget without cutting spending for Medicare, and 59 percent said the same about Social Security. Taking both programs together, 48 percent said the government could balance the budget without cutting either one. Democrats and political independents were far more likely than Republicans to say that neither program will have to be cut.

Storm warning Modern storm warning systems only work if the public also does its part.


he rising death toll from a tornado that struck Joplin, Mo., Sunday evening should be a timely reminder for any area residents who have grown blasé about the devastating potential of such storms. As of Monday evening, 116 people were confirmed dead, and the number could yet rise. It was the nation’s deadliest single twister in nearly 60 years and the second major tornado disaster in less than a month. Although tornadoes can be devastating, modern storm tracking systems that provide more advanced warning of such storms probably have helped keep the death tolls down in recent years. However, the Joplin tornado, as well as the Alabama tornadoes that killed 295 people last month, are reminders that tornado warning systems don’t always eliminate fatalities — especially when they don’t get the attention they deserve from the public they are designed to protect. How many people in Lawrence actually took cover after storm sirens were sounded shortly after 6 p.m. Saturday? Emergency officials said all of the sirens functioned properly when they were activated after funnel clouds were spotted in the area. Some people went to their basements, but how many others immediately went outside to look at the weather? Douglas County Emergency Management Director Teri Smith also pointed out the importance of people having more than one way to track dangerous weather. People who are inside with the air conditioner running and television playing may not hear the sirens, which are primarily designed to warn people who are outdoors. Monitoring a storm on television or a NOAA radio is a good backup plan. Those backups become even more important at night, when it’s more difficult to confirm a tornado visually. That was the situation later Saturday night, Smith said. Radar was tracking the storms, but the only way to see a tornado was when it was illuminated by lightning in the area. We count on our dedicated storm spotters and emergency personnel to keep us informed about deadly weather, but we also need to take some personal responsibility. The storm that hit Joplin reportedly came up quickly, but the Joplin city manager indicated that tornado sirens warned residents about 20 minutes before the tornado touched down. That’s not a long time, but it’s enough time to save many lives if people know where they will seek shelter and move quickly to get there. When to sound storm sirens is a matter of continuing debate. If they are activated too often and when there isn’t an imminent threat, it can encourage people to take them too casually. Sirens don’t sound that often in Douglas County, which is good. When they do, it’s probably a good idea for residents to at least get inside and monitor the weather situation. Modern storm tracking and warning systems are great, but they only work if the public does its part by being aware of threatening weather and diligent in protecting themselves. Massive storms like the one that hit Joplin still are likely to produce some fatalities, but public awareness can play a major role in minimizing storm deaths.

Slow campaign start may favor Romney CONWAY, N.H. — Four years ago this week, the old Kennett High School gym was rocking. The place was jammed, the crowd was on its feet, and all the way down Main Street, well past the Conway Cafe, the cars lined Route 16. Sen. Barack Obama brought out one of the largest political gatherings in the history of Carroll County — and then his entourage moved west, to Hanover, where thousands of Dartmouth students filled the space between Rockefeller Center and Hitchcock Hall. Something big was happening. Last week, the main thing in presidential politics here in New Hampshire, site of the first primary, was the meet-and-greet for-

David Shribman The effects of this late “public start are clear.

mer Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman held at Jesse’s Restaurant in Lebanon, a log cabin-style steakhouse holding its popular crab fest this month. No presidential candidate at the Merrimack Republican Town Committee meeting, no White House wannabe at the Atkinson Republican Committee meeting. In any other political season could the New Hampshire Federation of Republican Women hold a lilac luncheon — this year’s event was scheduled for this weekend in Concord — without a presidential candidate showing up?

A few stirrings There will be a few stirrings this week — Huntsman at a house party in Durham, and former House Speaker Newt Gingrich of Georgia at the Seacoast Republican Women’s breakfast Thursday. But that’s about it — nothing compared to the level of activity four years ago, when the campaign was raging like a North Country fireplace on a cold night. The story of the struggle for the Republican presidential nomination in 2012 is the story of the dog that isn’t barking — not here, nor in Iowa, site of the first presidential caucuses and where the Republican governor, Terry

Branstad, last week all but begged GOP candidates to come to his state, build organizations ... and spend money. Just how slowly is this campaign opening? Former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty, who announced his candidacy on Sunday, formed an exploratory committee on March 21. At that point in the 2008 election cycle, 20 candidates of both parties had done so or had made clear they would. The biggest news so far this year has been about candidates dropping out: Gov. Haley Barbour of Mississippi, former Gov. Mike Huckabee of Arkansas and Donald Trump.

Short is better? Not that we should be complaining. For years, Americans considered their campaign seasons too long and believed that money and attention spent a year before an election were money and attention wasted. Look a few miles north to Canada, where the election season began March 26 and ended May 2 — and in that period an entire G-8 nation came to a decisive resolution of its political future. Maybe we should just enjoy the silence, pack up the fishing gear, repair to Big Diamond Pond for lake trout or the First and Second Connecticut Lakes for landlocked salmon and look skyward to watch Saturn move through Virgo as Gemini sinks below the western horizon. There are lots of reasons the public part of this year’s campaign — quiet organizing has been going

on for some time — is starting late. One of them is Fox News, which employed f ive of the potential contenders, none of whom was particularly eager to relinquish the pay that went with being a network commentator. Another is voter fatigue, a national malady particularly virulent here. In New Hampshire, voters felt the energy of the Obama campaign and gave him a plurality of 10 percentage points, then two years later decisively swung the other way, electing a Republican senator and Republicans to both House seats while putting Republicans in charge of both chambers of the state legislature by substantial margins. The most active candidate so far may be former Gov. Mitt Romney of Massachusetts, who has the advantage of familiarity from the 2008 campaign and of his status as a Massachusetts neighbor, three of whom (John F. Kennedy in 1960, Michael S. Dukakis in 1988 and John F. Kerry in 2004) won Democratic nominations. Romney has made few campaign appearances, but he did deliver a health care speech and has been building a campaign team and financial base — raising an astonishing $10.25 million in a single day last week.

Donors hold back The effects of this late public start are clear. Many of the bigmoney people in the GOP are holding back. Ordinarily donors wait to see how a race develops — who’s hot, who’s not, and who

is talking their language — but right now nobody’s hot and, from the point of view at least of conventional Republicans, nobody’s talking their language. The danger, of course, is that the Republicans are unilaterally disarmed while Democrats talk of raising as much as $1 billion for Obama’s re-election campaign. But if Romney raises $40 million in this quarter alone, as his team suggests he could, he would put enormous financial pressure on late entrants, such as Gov. Mitch Daniels of Indiana, who might need to raise $1 million a week. That kind of prodigious financial power assured Gov. George W. Bush of Texas the Republican nomination in 2000. His only real competition came from Sen. John McCain of Arizona, who won the New Hampshire primary but lost his momentum in South Carolina. The question is whether the financial dominance of Romney and the relative weakness of the other contenders — not counting Daniels, who might yet enter the fray — combined with the slow start, might amplify the Republicans’ tendency to nominate someone who, like Richard M. Nixon in 1968, George H.W. Bush in 1988, Bob Dole in 1996 and McCain in 2008, is an established party figure and has run before. For Romney, a late-starting campaign might not be merely a characteristic of the race. It may be a key strategic element of it.


Israel interests To the editor: “Independent Arab and Jewish States and the Special International Regime for the City of Jerusalem … shall come into existence in Palestine … not later than 1 October 1948,” — UN General Assembly Resolution 18, Nov. 29, 1947. Eva Grant’s Saturday letter in the Journal-World expressed dismay that the United Nations may be going forward with what was promised 65 years ago in the resolution that established modern Israel. Although the boundaries of the lands were established by that resolution, Ms. Grant says Israel gave the Palestinians land — “gave” the land in the same sense that the United States gave our Native peoples Oklahoma. In her mind, the Palestinians have forfeited the right to a state because, among other reasons, they cannot have a state “without corruption.” Neither Israel nor the U.S. is without corruption. True, according Transparency International, the two sections of Palestine are tied with eight other countries for 107th place in corruption. However, they are far out of the bottom 10 But does anyone say that Chad, ranking 159th, the world’s most corrupt, ought not to exist? Grant writes of our long friendship with Israel. Maj.

A team of downtown revitalization authorities had reported to city YEARS officials that neiAGO ther a downtown IN 1986 mall nor a “suburban” mall would be appropriate for Lawrence. The team had concluded that an enclosed shopping mall in downtown Lawrence would “destroy much of that which now makes downtown Lawrence a unique shopping area.” Several city commissioners disagreed, saying that a carefully integrated mall could blend in and enhance the area rather than be a monolithic structure that overwhelms the "human scale" and design of downtown.

BRIEFLY Crackdown begins on seat belt use

Downtown fire destroys 2 Pittsburg businesses

TOPEKA (AP) — Law enforcement officers across Kansas will be cracking down on motorists not wearing their seat belts in the next two weeks. The “Click It Or Ticket” campaign began Monday and lasts through June 5. Nearly 150 Kansas law enforcement agencies are participating in the annual campaign. The Kansas Department of Transportation says more than two-thirds of the 388 people who died in traffic crashes in 2009 were not wearing seat belts. It says 89 percent of those who escaped injury were belted in. The transportation department’s website says 428 people died in traffic accidents in Kansas last year, and 102 have been killed so far this year.

PITTSBURG (AP) — Two businesses that operated in downtown Pittsburg for decades are gone, and the owners are uncertain whether they’ll try to rebuilding. A massive fire on Saturday destroyed Beitzinger’s Hardware and Benelli’s Jewelry. The hardware store had been in business since 1934, and the jewelry store since 1947. The cause of the blaze remains under investigation. The owners of both stores told The Morning Sun newspaper they have fire insurance, but they were not sure whether they’ll rebuild. Pittsburg firefighters battled the flames on their new, 100feet aerial truck. Fire Chief Scott Crain says crews had installed hoses on the vehicle just one day earlier.

Downright scary

Matt Tait

Hile stoked for pros Last weekend, while dozens of friends and teammates walked down the hill and crept closer to life after college, Kansas University softball senior Brittany Hile calmly clapped and grinned. Hers wasn’t exactly the face of a fellow graduate freaking out over the future. There’s a reason for that. In March, Hile, a two-year starter at catcher for KU, was drafted by the National Professional Fastpitch Diamonds, one of four squads that make up the NPF pro league. Yep, pro softball does exist, and, just like that, Hile, who planned to continue her job in seasonal sales at The Buckle this summer, was cleaning up her cleats and packing her bags for Orlan- Hile do. She and her mom will hit the road later this week, and the former Blue Valley West High standout will begin a life she never imagined possible. “A couple weeks before I got word that I was going to play professionally, the stress was starting to sneak in,” Hile said. “I was thinking, ‘What am I going to do? I have to find a job, I have to market myself.’ And then this showed up, and it took a lot of weight off of my shoulders. I still have more time, and hopefully this will lead to something.” In many ways, it already has. When Hile heard her named called as the 15th pick of the 2011 NPF Senior Draft on March 18, she became the second Jayhawk ever to be drafted to play pro softball. Serena Settlemier, the 2006 Big 12 Player of the Year, was the other. Talk about good company. “Even though I didn’t know her personally, I think this kind of ties us together,” Hile said. “And hopefully we’ll make it so more and more Jayhawks get drafted in the future.” For nine weeks this summer, Hile will do nothing but play softball. There will be no classes, tutoring sessions, family obligations or untimely distractions. Just a ball, a bat and other highly skilled players being paid for their abilities. NPF contracts won’t make anyone think of Alex Rodriguez, but, the way Hile sees it, making even just a penny to play is the equivalent of striking it rich. “It’s pretty neat to know that you’re gonna make money, and all you have to do is softball,” said Hile of the salary that’s on par with any good-paying job. “It’s literally like your job.” Growing up, Hile spent countless hours playing ball in the park with her parents and older brother. “I was always around it,” she said. “Even before I started playing.” Unlike the vast majority of college seniors in her sport, Hile will remain connected to the game beyond KU. It was an opportunity she said yes to immediately, and one she’s looking forward to immensely. “Definitely,” she said. “Who wouldn’t want to continue playing after college and call yourself a professional athlete?”

BUSINESSES NEAR ST. JOHN’S REGIONAL MEDICAL CENTER SHOW DAMAGE on Monday from the tornado that hit Joplin, Mo., on Sunday, killing at least 116 people. Former Kansas University guard Jeff Boschee, an assistant coach at Missouri Southern State University in Joplin, was not caught in the path of the tornado and sought shelter at his wife’s parents’ house in nearby Columbus (Kan.).

Former KU guard Boschee safe from tornado’s destruction By Gary Bedore

Former Kansas University basketball player Jeff Boschee, his wife, Jamie, and daughter, Mary Rose, were not caught in the path of Sunday afternoon’s deadly tornado in Joplin, Mo. Safe and sound at Jamie’s parents’ house in nearby Columbus (Kan.), Boschee, an assistant coach at Joplin’s Missouri Southern State University, and his loved ones watched TV for live updates on the twister. It’s a storm that claimed more than 100 lives and flattened neighborhoods, but did not hit Boschee’s house a mile north of Joplin in Webb City and did not harm Jamie’s salon and day spa

business on South Main Street in Joplin. The tornado also did not strike any buildings on the MSSU campus where Boschee has worked the past two seasons. “It’s a huge relief to know your family is safe, but it’s terrible that so many other people out there are affected in so many ways,” Boschee said Monday afternoon, an hour after his cell Boschee phone service resumed after being knocked out for about 20 hours. “The people that passed away ... lots of prayers go out to each and

every one of those people,” Boschee added. With heavy hearts, he, Jamie and Mary Rose returned to their Webb City home about 9:30 p.m. on Sunday. “Our neighborhood is f ine. We’ve got a lot of friends and family that were hit pretty hard, especially in the area by St. John’s Hospital where the houses are completely gone. It’s pretty crazy stuff to have this hit home, not necessarily directly, but have friends and family hit directly by this,” Boschee said of some acquaintances incurring severe property damage. The tornado hit the hospital head on and splintered buildings such as the local Dillons and Walmart and sporting goods store.

Actually, thousands of buildings were damaged or destroyed. “T.J. Williams, who is a player on our team … the house he rents is gone. He’s the only player on our team that was really affected,” Boschee said, indicating school let out a week ago. “Skyler Bowlin (player) was at a movie theater when it hit. When he got back out he saw devastation everywhere. “My sister-in-law and brotherin-law work for my father-in-law’s electrical company. They are out right now assessing the damage out in the worst part. They said you don’t even know where you are at. It’s unrecognizable. Jamie’s uncle’s son-in-law has four rental properties. They were out driving around Please see JOPLIN, page 3B


Jayhawks hot on recruiting trail for 2012 By Matt Tait

I had a big Kool-Aid smile on my face when I heard it.” — Wide receiver recruit Dontonio Jordan, on his reaction to KU coach Turner Gill offering him a scholarship

With an impressive 2011 recruiting class already signed, Kansas University’s football program has not let off the gas pedal with regard to chasing down talent in the Class of 2012. Last February, KU coach Turner Gill and his staff signed 27 new players, mostly high school seniors with speed who figure to make an impact right away. As they hit the recruiting trail for 2012, the KU coaches weren’t equipped with the same number of scholarships — about half as many, in fact — but that hasn’t stopped them from going after guys who fit what the program needs. Already, Gill and company have handed out more than four times as many scholarship offers as they have scholarships to give.

So far, no 2012 recruits have committed to KU, but, as we learned last year, that could change at any moment. One of KU’s first targets in the Class of 2012, wide receiver Dontonio Jordan, of Lake Dallas High in Corinth, Texas, is expected to announce his decision Friday. Jordan, 5-foot-11, 185 pounds, has been clocked at 4.5 seconds in the 40-yard dash and was in town for KU’s spring game. He also recently visited Stanford, and many believe both KU and Stanford are among his finalists. Aaron Stamn is listed as the lead recruiter for Jordan, and the scholarship offer came directly from Gill, something that made a big impact on the speedy wideout. “I had a big Kool-Aid smile on my face when I heard it,” Jordan told about receiving the offer.

Fla. connection still in play The KU coaching staff’s connection to Florida continues to drum up interest from some of the top players in that area. Last week, the Jayhawks offered a scholarship to Duaron Williams, a 6-4, 292-pound offensive guard from Jones High in Orlando. Williams’ offer list already is long and includes Kentucky, Louisville, Ole Williams Miss, Rutgers, South Florida and UCF, among others. Another Florida player with interest in KU is wide receiver Daniel Braverman, of University High in Fort Lauderdale. Braverman, 6-foot, 175, was one of the

first players in his class to receive an offer from Kansas, and his recent comments indicate that KU’s early interest carried weight. “I would be open to visiting Kansas because the Big 12 is a really good conference,” Braverman told Rivals. “They were one of the first schools to contact my coaches at the start of the recruiting process.” Braverman’s offer list includes: Duke, Eastern Michigan, Miami (Ohio), South Florida and Toledo. A big reason for KU’s recent success in Florida is assistant coach Robert Wimberly, a native of Miami who coaches KU’s safeties. Wimberly made a huge impression with Felix Varela High wide receiver Jordan Armstrong, of Miami. Please see FOOTBALL, page 3B

Noah wrong, but fans not blameless



By David Haugh


Chicago Tribune

MIAMI — A contrite Joakim Noah showed up for his national apology Monday afternoon at the Bulls team hotel wearing redstriped pajama bottoms with a white Tshirt. And it worked for him. The odd getup was more functional but less flamboyant than the seersucker suit and bow tie Noah made famous at the 2007 NBA Draft. On a day Noah repeated he was sorry for directing an anti-gay slur toward a fan during Game 3 of the Eastern Conference finals Sunday, it was worth remembering how unapologetic Noah always has been about free expression. This is a biracial player with long hair worn in a ponytail or bun and a face in need of a razor. He grew up the son of an artist and international tennis star, shuttling between New York and France, and owns a home in his grandfather’s native country, Africa. To say Noah is an eclectic mix of cultures is as obvious as saying the South Florida sky tends to be blue. You don’t live or look like Noah without believing in tolerance. “People who know me know I’m an open-minded guy,” Noah said before the league justifiably fined him $50,000 for his comments. “I let my emotions get the best of me. It’s not what I’m about. I’m not here to hurt anybody’s feelings. I’m just here to win a basketball game.” Oh, yeah, the basketball game. For the Bulls to beat the Heat in Game 4 today at AmericanAirlines Arena, for starters, Noah will have to defend Chris Bosh as tenaciously as coach Tom Thibodeau and teammates defended his character. But whatever comes in the fallout from this, it shouldn’t be just about the league punishing Noah for a heat-of-the-moment outburst. He is a good man who made a bad mistake caught on national TV. It’s more about the league fighting intolerance harder than ever, especially in light of Suns team President Rick Welts coming out last week. And what’s wrong with that? There’s nothing wrong with treating the anti-gay slur Noah invoked with the same zero-tolerance mind-set as racial epithets directed at African-Americans. Heck, I would have been fine if NBA Commissioner David Stern had fined LeBron James earlier this month for referring to a reporter’s questions at a news conference as “retarded,” a term potentially as offensive to those with developmentally disabled friends or family members. There’s nothing wrong with wanting to clean up the lexicon of sports culture, one hateful word at a time. The price of doing nothing is potentially much more than $50,000. “It’s a teachable moment in that it is generating more intelligent dialogue on this topic that is overdue in men’s team sports,” Welts said in an email to the Tribune. “I’m proud that the NBA has made it clear that outbursts like this have no place in our game. I had the pleasure of having dinner with Joakim Noah during his predraft interview with the Suns, and think he’s an outstanding young man who sincerely regrets what happened.” What also is regrettable is more players don’t comprehend the reach they have. They should thank the league for trying to improve the way the public sees them, the way they represent their brand before, during and after games. Consider how much discipline it requires to be a pro athlete. Why can’t more take the same rigid approach to language? If they can pay such close attention to what goes into their bodies, they can do a better job of watching what comes out of their mouths. Those who don’t simply lapse into lazy speech reinforced by years of stereotypes and often inspired by rage. Whether it’s directed at a drunk fan or bad driver, insult by insult, it erodes the way we communicate. Of course, Stern can follow up his tough stance on slurs by beefing up security around team benches to combat unruly fans who get personal like Noah’s obnoxious instigator. “I know Jo and I know he didn’t mean what he said at all,” Luol Deng said without totally absolving Noah. “At the same time, there are times when a fan like that — honestly, I felt like jumping in the crowd and hitting him. We’re humans.” Deng and every player deserve human decency from fans. Just as there’s a difference between Noah calling the fan an idiot and the word he used, criticizing a player for his play pales in comparison to insulting his mother, as Noah claimed. The high price of a ticket doesn’t buy the right to be as rude face-to-face with a player as someone might be on a Facebook page. No, Noah has no excuse for reacting offcolor and out of character. But it takes two.

THIS YEAR’S NASCAR HALL OF FAME INDUCTEES, FROM RIGHT, Bobby Allison, Ned Jarrett, David Pearson and Bud Moore, plus Maurice, left, and Richard Petty, second from left, representing their father, Lee Petty, pose during a ceremony Monday in Charlotte, N.C.

Pearson headlines second NASCAR Hall class CHARLOTTE, N.C. — There was shock, maybe even outrage, when David Pearson didn’t make the inaugural class of the NASCAR Hall of Fame. If Pearson felt slighted, he never said. Pearson made the wait worth it Monday night, headlining the inauguration of the fivemember second class. As he did last year, when he was passed over for induction, Pearson called on the voting panel to elect NASCAR’s pioneers before anyone else. “I’m being honest, none of us should be in it,” Pearson said, throwing his support behind the likes of Cotton Owens, Raymond Parks and Ray Fox. “I keep going back to the ones that really started it. The older guys ought to go in first, the ones that really started it and even me, I don’t deserve to go in now.” But Pearson, winner of three championships and 105 races, understood why he was selected. He was introduced by longtime rival Richard Petty and inducted by car owner Leonard Wood, who called Pearson “the greatest driver in the history of NASCAR.” Pearson was inducted along with 84-race winner Bobby Allison, Petty Enterprises patriarch and three-time Cup champion Lee Petty, Bud Moore, a decorated World War II veteran and two-time Cup championship team owner, and two-time champion and noted broadcaster Ned Jarrett. The first class, inducted last May, included seven-time Cup champions Richard Petty and Dale Earnhardt, former driver and car owner Junior Johnson.

AUTO RACING Raikkonen to race in Charlotte CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Former Formula One world champion Kimi Raikkonen will make his Nationwide Series debut on Saturday at Charlotte Motor Speedway. Raikkonen was listed on the entry release that came out Monday as driver for the No. 87 Toyota for NEMCO Motorsports. The car is owned by Joe Nemechek, but he made a deal with Kyle Busch to let Raikkonen drive Saturday. Raikkonen made his NASCAR debut Friday night with a 15th-place finish in the Trucks Series race driving for Kyle Busch Motorsports.

Hurting driver to race Indy BOSTON — Simona de Silvestro’s hands are wrapped in thick gauze and tape from her wrists to fingertips, protecting the raw tissue beneath from exposure as it heals from the burns caused by a horrific crash during practice for the Indianapolis 500. She jokingly called them her “Mickey Mouse” gloves and is planning to wear a much more streamlined version Sunday under her protective driving gloves. This is Indy. As long as she can grip the wheel, the 22-year-old Swiss driver plans to be racing at The Brickyard. “I’m going to try. You never know,” de Silvestro said. “Sometimes, it’s too risky. But I’m going to try as much as I can to stay out there.” De Silvestro is actually thankful her hands, which are healing from second- and some third-degree burns, were the only casualty in the crash that could have easily killed her Thursday. “Just coming out with a couple burns, I think it’s not so bad,” she said.

Hunter-Reay gets Indy ride INDIANAPOLIS — An Andretti and a Foyt are teaming up to put Ryan Hunter-Reay back in the Indianapolis 500. After a disastrous weekend for Michael Andretti’s team, the owner and his father’s old rival have reached a deal to get Hunter-Reay, the only American to win an IndyCar race since April 2008, into A.J. Foyt’s No. 41 car for Sunday’s race.

Details of the arrangement weren’t immediately available, but it may have come down to cold, hard cash. “We’ve been competitors for many years, but it’s still the kind of relationship when someone is really down and out, you don’t turn your back on them — at least I can’t,” Foyt said in a statement. “This is going back to the way racing used to be, where if people were in a lot of trouble, you tried to help each other.”

COLLEGE BASKETBALL DeChellis leaves PSU for Navy STATE COLLEGE, PA. — Coach Ed DeChellis, who led Penn State to the NCAA Tournament this year, resigned Monday to take the vacant job at Navy. The move comes as a surprise, after DeChellis orchestrated his alma mater’s first NCAA bid in a decade. The Nittany Lions lost to Temple, 66-64, in the second round of the tourney. “It’s been a very, very difficult weekend for me and my family. If I break down, there’s good reason for that,” DeChellis said during a 20-minute news conference at the Jordan Center. “Penn State is a special place for me and my family, but I found another special place in the U.S. Naval Academy.” DeChellis finished with a 114-138 record at Penn State, but was 41-95 in the regular season in the Big Ten. Counting a previous seven-year stint at East Tennessee State, DeChellis has a career coaching record of 219-231.

Murray State hires Prohm MURRAY, KY. — Steve Prohm has been named the new men’s head basketball coach at Murray State, taking over for his former boss, Billy Kennedy. Murray State athletics director Allen Ward said Monday that Prohm is the right choice to build on the success the Ohio Valley Conference school has had in the past few years. Prohm has spent five years at Murray as an assistant to Kennedy, who was named head coach recently at Texas A&M.

SOCCER Adu gets US call-up for exhibition CHICAGO — Freddy Adu is getting another chance. The former phenom was selected to the U.S. roster for next month’s Gold Cup on Monday, the first time in almost two years he’s been included in coach Bob Bradley’s plans. Adu has been playing at Rizespor in Turkey’s second division since January. “Freddy is a player that, in the past, has shown us soccer qualities that we think help our team,” Bradley said. “It hasn’t always added up enough yet with the full national team, but it seems like a good opportunity to get him back in with us when we have a good month together, and challenge him and hope that he has continued to grow and mature.”

CYCLING Police search RadioShack hotel FALCADE, ITALY — Giro d’Italia director Angelo Zomegnan says police carried out a search at the RadioShack team hotel on Monday. Zomegnan told the Associated Press the search was conducted by officers of Italy’s elite NAS police unit during Monday’s rest day. He had no other details. It was unclear if the search was related to the ongoing investigation into Michele Ferrari, a banned Italian physician who was once Lance Armstrong’s training adviser. RadioShack team physician Nino Danieli told the Cycling News website that police questioned him and searched the team vehicles but found nothing.

Will anyone challenge KU hoops in 2011-12? Editor’s note: The following is an entry from Eric Sorrentino’s Conference Chatter blog, which follows features and trends in the Big 12, on It doesn’t require much of a memory to recall the last seven regular-season Big 12 men’s basketball champions. Kansas, Kansas, Kansas, Kansas, Kansas, Kansas, Kansas. (Note: Three of those years, KU shared the regularseason title with Oklahoma [2005] and Texas [2006, 2008], but you get the point. It’s a heck of an accomplishment). With Marcus Morris, Markieff Morris and Josh Selby seeking NBA riches, the success of next year’s team will be largely connected to the on-court maturation of Tyshawn Taylor and Thomas Robinson. Bill Self, who has won an absurd 83.7 percent of his games in eight years in Lawrence, will be gunning for an eighth straight Big 12 title in 2011-2012. Will anyone from the recently trimmed Big 12 legitimately challenge KU? The Jayhawks have never finished worse than 124 in the league during their seven-year reign as conference champs. The NBA Draft early eligibility deadline passed on April 24, so we have a better idea of how Big 12 rosters will be constructed next season. Note that players who have not signed with agents can withdraw from the draft up until June 13, so this is not an exact analysis. Here’s how I’d rank the 10 Big 12 teams (still have to get used to that) right now, looking ahead to next season:

1. Kansas (35-3 overall, 14-2 Big 12) With the Morris twins declaring for the draft, Kansas will lose its top two scorers and rebounders from a year ago, when the Jayhawks went 35-3 and lost to VCU in the Elite Eight. KU’s third-leading scorer, Tyrel Reed, is also gone, along with Brady Morningstar and Mario Little. That said ... not picking KU to win the Big 12 next season would be a bigger

mistake than a pitcher grooving Jose Bautista a fastball in the middle of the strike zone (only shameless plug of my fantasy baseball team in this entry, I promise). We’ve seen this episode before. KU was supposed to take a step back in the league standings last year after the departures of Cole Aldrich, Sherron Collins and Xavier Henry. How did that turn out? Until the Jayhawks are knocked off their throne, they deserve the top spot on everyone’s preseason ballot. And there’s a good chance KU will live up to the expectations. Taylor and Robinson return, along with Jeff Withey, Elijah Johnson and Travis Releford. Ben McLemore, an incoming freshman from St. Louis and’s No. 34-rated player nationally, should challenge for a starting spot immediately. Furthermore, KU fans are hitting the refresh button 50100 times per minute awaiting the decision of recruit DeAndre Daniels (No. 10 nationally). Kansas is probably a top 15-20 team without Daniels, and a top 5-10 team with him.

2. Baylor (18-13, 7-9) The Bears, after a disastrous 18-13 season (considering the talent), and a seventh-place finish in the league standings, will be loaded next season. Perry Jones surprisingly turned down millions of dollars and a potential top-five spot in the NBA Draft to return to Baylor for his sophomore season. He’ll be joined by incoming 6-8, 193pound freshman Quincy Miller, ranked No. 7 overall by Another Quincy (Acy) also will return, giving the Bears one of the most feared front lines in the country. If Baylor receives production from its backcourt

TEXAS GUARD J’COVAN BROWN (14) MAKES A MOVE past Kansas University’s Tyrel Reed on Jan. 22 at Allen Fieldhouse. Brown will be one of the few returning players with experience next season for the Longhorns. (incoming freshman Deuce Bello and a slew of transfers should help), the Bears could make a run at the Big 12 title.

3. Missouri (23-11, 8-8) New coach Frank Haith will inherit an immensely talented group. The Tigers only lose Justin Safford from last year, and he only started 12 of 34 games. MU’s top six scorers return, including Marcus Denmon (16.9 ppg), one of the best guards in the league. Mizzou is deep at guard with the Pressey brothers (Phil, Matt) back, along with Michael Dixon. Laurence Bowers and Ricardo Ratliffe will form a solid frontcourt. Expecting Haith to win the league in his first year is unrealistic, but a top-three finish is not far-fetched. 4. Texas A&M (24-9, 10-6) Murray State coach Billy Kennedy recently accepted

Henrichs 24th at 6A golf Football J-W Staff Reports

WICHITA — Lawrence High golfer Logan Henrichs fired a 79 to finish in 24th place individually Monday at the Class 6A state golf tournament at Reflection Ridge Golf Club. “He played really well after a shaky start,” Lawrence High coach Dirk Wedd said. Henrichs bogeyed the first four holes, but finished with

three birdies in the final 14 holes. Sophomore Brett Van Blaricum carded a 95, while freshman Jesse Ohtake shot a 100 for the Lions. “It’s exciting,” Wedd said. “We have some young kids. They’ll all be back next year.” Free State’s Alex Green (80) and Wilson Hack (85) also competed at state as individuals.

Armstrong, 5-11, 175, said he plans to visit KU this fall. His other offers have come from: Auburn, Louisville, Maryland, Minnesota, South Carolina, Virginia Tech and Wake Forest. Despite many of those schools having better football pedigrees than Kansas, Armstrong said the Jayhawks had been able to hang with the big boys. “Kansas is recruiting me the hardest,” Armstrong told Rivals. “We keep in touch more than the other schools. “He f inished strong,” They talk to my coach a lot, Seabury coach Eric Edwards too.” said. “He definitely felt like he left a few strokes on the Waco CB a hot commodity Despite not yet receiving an course on the front nine. But he finished out his senior year official offer from the Jayhawks, Waco (Texas) High going out in the top 10.” Grabill said his most mem- cornerback Will Hines conorable shot came on the par-3 tinues to keep Kansas on his 13th hole, where he drilled a radar. Hines, 6-1, 175, told Rivals 15-foot putt for birdie. “I hit a little 7-iron from 165 earlier this week that Stamn (yards) out, and stuck it pin- had been working hard to find high, about 15 feet,” Grabill a time for him to take an offisaid. “I felt good about the cial visit to Kansas. Hines has no shortage of read and drilled the putt in the back of the cup. It was right interest from colleges when I really needed to turn throughout the country. Included on his offer list are on my game.” Grabill will attend Wash- schools such as Arkansas, ington and Lee (Va.) Univer- Baylor, Cal, Michigan, Notre sity next year and intends to Dame, Oklahoma State and Texas Tech. walk on to the golf team.

Seabury’s Grabill 9th at 1A state J-W Staff Reports

EMPORIA — Seabury Academy senior Reed Grabill carded an 81 to finish in ninth place individually on Monday at the Class 1A state golf tournament at the Emporia Municipal Golf Course. Grabill took second place as an individual at state last year in McPherson. “I felt like I could have thrown out a mid-70’s score and probably should have,” Grabill said. “But I let it get away from me early and kind of had to salvage a round.” Grabill struggled to a 43 on the front nine, but fired a 38 on the back nine. The 38 was the second-best back-nine total of the day.

the Texas A&M head coaching job, taking over for Mark Turgeon, who left for Maryland. Kennedy will take over a solid group, led by Khris Middleton and David Loubeau, A&M’s top two scorers last season.

5. Texas (28-8, 13-3) Texas was the lone threat to Kansas last season in the league race, but the Longhorns should take a step back next year with the losses of Jordan Hamilton, Tristan Thompson and Cory Joseph to the NBA. Add seniors Gary Johnson, Dogus Balbay and Jai Lucas to the departure list, and that’s six of UT’s seven leading scorers who will be gone. Five-star incoming freshman point guard Myck Kabongo (No. 26 overall) will run the show for UT next season, and J’Covan Brown will join him in what should be a solid backcourt.

Despite the long and evergrowing list, Hines told Rivals he’d likely visit KU if he got an offer.

Tight end receives offer Last week, KU dished out a scholarship offer to tight end, Jordan Smith, a 6-5, 220pound two-way player from Reicher High in Waco, Texas. So far, Smith’s only other reported offer is from Air Force, but several other Big 12 schools are showing interest, including Baylor, Kansas State, Texas A&M and Texas Tech. DE does double duty Late last month, Wichita defensive end Trace Clark made visits to Kansas and Kansas State on back-to-back days. The 6-5, 240-pound weakside D-end visited Lawrence for KU’s final practice of the spring and then went to Manhattan the following day to attend K-State’s spring game. Clark, who has been clocked at 4. 57 in the 40, already has more than a dozen offers from BCS schools but said he was in no hurry to pick a place to play. “I really don’t know when I will make my decision,” he told Rivals. “I want to use the summer to get out and see who has offered me. I want to meet with all of the coaches and see the campuses at each school.”

KANSAS FORWARD THOMAS ROBINSON FINISHES a put-back dunk against Missouri on March 5 in Columbia, Mo. With Marcus and Markieff Morris leaving for the NBA, Robinson will be counted on for heavy minutes next season. 6. Oklahoma State (20-14, 6-10) The Cowboys will be somewhat of a wild card, with their success likely tied to the effectiveness of incoming five-star freshman recruit LeBryan Nash (6-7, 230 pounds, No. 6 nationally). Coach Travis Ford also will bring in point guard Cezar Guerrero (four stars, No. 71 nationally) to go along with returners Keiton Page and J.P. Olukemi. OSU will be a scary team loaded with sleeper potential. 7. Kansas State (23-11, 10-6) The Wildcats return Rodney McGruder, Jamar Samuels and Jordan Henriquez-Roberts, but they shouldn’t contend for the league crown without Jacob Pullen and Curtis Kelly. 8. Iowa State (16-16, 3-13) The Cyclones were com-


looking for the properties. They couldn’t even find them. They didn’t know where they were at (with street signs down and neighborhoods razed).” The 31-year-old Boschee — who stayed out of Joplin Monday morning to let emergency workers be able to do their jobs — finally drove to work Monday afternoon. But not to his office. “There’s a shelter at the university. I’ll try to help out there,” Boschee said. As far as the town’s rebuilding ... he’s hoping for the best. “It looks terrible, something you’ve never seen before,” Boschee said of

petitive last season, despite finishing last in the Big 12. Coach Fred Hoiberg will enter his second season with quite a few transfers (mainly Chris Allen from Michigan State, and Royce White from Minnesota) looking to make up for the loss of seniors Diante Garrett and Jamie Vanderbeken.

9. Oklahoma (14-18, 5-11) New coach Lon Kruger signed a seven-year, $16.6 million contract to leave UNLV and head to Norman. He has quite the rebuilding project ahead of him. 10. Texas Tech (13-19, 5-11) Billy Gillispie will receive another chance to prove himself in the Big 12. The former Texas A&M coach will have to deal with the departures of John Roberson, Mike Singletary, David Tairu, D’walyn Roberts and Brad Reese.

Joplin. “Joplin High School is totaled. They’ll have to rebuild it. “Other towns have had the ability to rebuild. At a time like this, you don’t know how. You don’t know where to start. It’s kind of spooky. It’s kind of scary, but things will be rebuilt I’m sure. Things will be brighter a month or two down the road, but just looking at it now, you don’t understand how (this happened) and where you are going to start.” The important thing, of course, is Boschee and family members are safe. “I’ve heard from some of our KU guys — Nick Bradford, Brett Ballard. The guys texted and stuff to see if we were all right. I was able to text last night but not able to talk to anybody on my phone until today. It’s been crazy.”

Baker hires women’s coach J-W Staff Reports

Phillies unload on Reds, 10-3 The Associated Press

Phillies 10, Reds 3 P H I L A D E L P H I A — Jimmy Rollins, Placido Polanco and Raul Ibanez homered to back Cole Hamels, and Philadelphia handed Cincinnati its sixth straight loss, on Monday night. Chase Utley returned to Philadelphia’s lineup after missing the first 46 games due to a right knee injury. The f ive-time All-Star second baseman was 0-for-5, the only starter without a hit. His teammates did all the damage. A struggling offense that had nine runs combined in the previous six games scored nine by the third inning.

Brewers 11, Nationals 3 MILWAUKEE — Corey Hart hit his first three home runs this season and drove in seven to tie both club records, lifting surging Milwaukee. Hitless in his previous 11 atbats, Hart smacked two-run shots in the first and fifth innings off Tom Gorzelanny (2-4) to reach 100 homers for his career. He finished with a three-run homer off Doug Slaten with two outs in the eighth. Prince Fielder also homered for Milwaukee, which has won seven straight games at home and 11 of the last 14 overall.

Astros 4, Dodgers 3 HOUSTON — Hunter Pence’s two-out RBI single in the ninth inning lifted Houston to a victory over Los Angeles. The Astros trailed, 3-1, entering the ninth inning before Michael Bourn tied it with his two-out, full-count double down the right-field line that scored two against Kenley Jansen (1-1). Bill Hall started the rally with a one-out single and Angel Sanchez walked with two outs. Hall and Sanchez advanced on a double steal to put the tying runs in scoring position for Bourn.

Cardinals 3, Padres 1 SAN DIEGO — Albert Pujols hit his first homer in 106 atbats to end the longest drought of his career, and St. Louis scored two runs off Heath Bell in the ninth to beat struggling San Diego. The NL Central-leading Cardinals won for the seventh time in eight games. The Padres have lost six of seven, and their 8-19 home record is the worst in the NL. Daniel Descalso’s RBI single to right off Bell (2-1) broke a 1-1 tie. Ryan Theriot hit a two-out single to bring in Descalso. Kyle Lohse (6-2) held the Padres to one run and five hits in eight innings, struck out five and walked one. Fernando Salas got the final two outs for his eighth save in eight chances. St. Louis

Davies would be good for Royals. Really

Orlin Wagner/AP File Photo

KANSAS CITY STARTING PITCHER KYLE DAVIES delivers to Cleveland’s Michael Brantley in this photo from May 16 in Kansas City, Mo.

The Kansas City Royals could sure use Kyle Davies back in their starting rotation. Yes, I understand how crazy that sounds. After all, Davies has a 7.46 earned-run average, which is second-worst in the majors among pitchers with seven or more starts this year. And, yes, the blog Royals Authority did some research earlier in the year that showed, going back to 1901, Davies had the worst career ERA of a starter who has pitched at least 700 innings (5.54). Still, I don’t think Royals fans should be wanting to send the 27-year-old Davies — who went on the disabled list May 18 due to anterior shoulder soreness — on the next bus out of town. The reason? He’s one of the only starters on the Royals staff who can get swings and misses. Among the five Royals pitchers that have made more than one start this sea-

Jesse Newell

son, Davies has the highest strikeout rate per nine innings (6.37 K/9), well ahead of second-place Bruce Chen (5.06). Jeff Francis (4.82), Luke Hochevar (4.64) and Sean O’Sullivan (3.29) lag well behind. O’Sullivan has been especially hittable; in his last four games, he has faced 104 batters and struck out only two (1.9 percent) — a remarkable feat considering MLB hitters strike out, on average, about 20 percent of the time. The Royals’ starters as a whole have combined to strike out just 4.92 batters per nine innings this season. That’s worst in the majors by

Vogelsong emerging star ————

Giants reliever followed long route, but now, at 33, he has been ‘incredible’ in majors SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Ryan Vogelsong was still soaking in his first major-league victory in almost five years, humbled and overwhelmed after what felt like a lifetime of trying to recreate the moment. San Francisco Giants teammate Aubrey Huff was standing a few lockers over and asked him what all the fuss was about. “I’m thinking, ‘My gosh, time flies doesn’t it?”’ Huff said. “Cause it seems like I just faced you in Pittsburgh. Vogelsong said, ‘Well, maybe for you time flew. Not for me.’” Certainly not. Vogelsong’s pitching career had come close to ending countless times. He was a promising prospect with the Pirates more than a decade ago, he had elbow ligament replacement surgery, failed in the big leagues, bounced out of the minors, struggled in Japan and at age 33 figured his career might be over. “I never thought of quitting,” he said. “Just the thoughts going through my head, ‘Is this it?’ I wasn’t sure I pitched well enough to get another opportunity.” One last chance came this season from the most unlikely team: the defending World Series champions Giants. Vogelsong didn’t make the club out of spring training, and how could he? Not with Tim Lincecum, Matt Cain, Jonathan Sanchez, Madison Bumgarner and Barry Zito filling out one of the best rotations in baseball. So he went back to riding buses and staying in motels for Triple-A Fresno, not an easy decision with his wife, Nicole, and son, Ryder, now 20 months old, left to share the burden. He was in the stands at a game in Las Vegas charting pitches for his next s t a r t wh e n t h e m a n a ge r asked for his cell phone number, informing him that Zito was placed on the disabled list with a sprained right foot and the Giants were looking for a replacement. Sure enough, just before Vogelsong boarded the bus, his phone rang. Giants Vice President Bobby Evans was on the other end. Vogelsong was heading back to the big leagues to make a fill-in start

SAN FRANCISCO RELIEF PITCHER RYAN VOGELSONG throws against the A’s during their game Friday in Oakland. for San Francisco against — who else? — the Pirates. All he has done since has been spectacular. At a time when most pitchers are in the twilight of their career, Vogelsong is 3-0 with a 1.93 ERA since replacing Zito — who’s in the fifth year of his $126 million, seven-year deal and could lose his spot in the rotation to a red-hot pitcher for the second straight season — and the Giants have won all f ive times Vogelsong has started. “He has really done an incredible job,” Giants manager Bruce Bochy said. “The long road he’s been through, he’s a better pitcher and player because of it. It’s a great story, isn’t it?” There was a time not so long ago when Vogelsong’s journey didn’t seem headed for a happy ending.

Vogelsong went 6-13 with a 6.50 ERA in 2004 with the Pirates and was moved to the bullpen the next season. By 2006, he was back in the minors. Then Japan. Life was a whole lot different across the Pacific, where starting pitchers often travel ahead of the team and don’t stay for games. There was a language barrier and a complete culture shock, especially for a guy who makes his offseason home just outside Philadelphia. One night some Japanese teammates asked Vogelsong to join them for dinner at a sushi bar. Somebody ordered fish guts for the table. Vogelsong was stunned. “I asked, ’What’s that?’ They said, ’Don’t worry about it,”’ Vogelsong recalled, chuckling. “Their whole thing is everything is good for you.

It will give you power. That’s what they say. I didn’t want to disrespect them and not try it. I tried it. It wasn’t very good at all.” Quite frankly, neither was his pitching. After going 11-14 in three years in Japan, Vogelsong spent last season playing for minor league teams of the Los Angeles Angels and Philadelphia Phillies. Then he was cut from the roster again. In what figured to be his last chance at the big leagues, he was invited to camp with the Giants, who had f irst drafted him in 1998 before sending him to Pittsburgh. Suddenly, Vogelsong began to put it all together. Giants pitching coach Dave Righetti believes Vogelsong’s turnaround is in large part because the right-hander learned to be more of a pitcher than a thrower, able to locate strikes and outthink hitters instead of simply trying to overpower them. Vogelsong agreed and offered even further explanation. “I just have a better understanding of myself now. I can slow the game down and feel my body out there,” he said. “In the past, I could always figure out what I was doing wrong. But it was always an inning late, a hitter late, now I’m always able to make adjustments out there.” Vogelsong has already collected his share of highlights this season: getting his first major league victory since 2006 in Pittsburgh, taking a perfect game into the sixth against Colorado and receiving a standing ovation as he walked off the mound, calling it “the best experience I ever had in baseball.” Vogelsong’s addition has helped the Giants begin Mon1 day with a 3 ⁄2-game lead over the Rockies for first place in the NL West, and there might not be anybody on San Francisco’s roster relishing the moment more than Vogelsong. “To go through what I went through and get back, it’s definitely much more appreciated,” he said. “I always realized how great it was to be a big league baseball player. But once you’re gone and you’re away from it, to be back in the big league life, it’s definitely much more appreciated.”

a huge margin; the Pittsburgh Pirates are second-tolast, and they’ve struck out 5.74 batters per nine innings. If the current pace keeps up, K.C.’s starters will have the lowest K/9 rate since 2006, when (you guessed it) the Royals’ starters struck out just 4.91 batters per nine innings. No team other than K.C. has had a starting rotation K/9 rate below 4.92 since 2003. So why are strikeouts so important? It sounds simple, but they’re the easiest way to get an out in baseball. If the ball is put in play, even weakly, there’s always the chance for the hitter to get lucky. Last year, the MLB average for fly balls was about .140, ground balls was about .240 and line drives was about .720. With a strikeout, the batter’s only hope is to advance to first on a wild pitch — something that just doesn’t happen that often. The Royals have some

help coming. Rookie Danny Duffy struck out four batters in four innings during his MLB debut last week against Texas. Mike Montgomery will be promoted soon, and he has struck out 7.3 batters per nine innings in AAA this year. Davies isn’t a fan favorite, but his ability to get strikeouts makes him a better option in the rotation than O’Sullivan. Though Davies still walks too many guys (3.73 per nine innings), he’s been unlucky in that 36 percent of the balls put in play against him this year have gone for hits, whereas 29-31 percent is about the league average. When that number comes down, Davies’ numbers will look a lot better. Davies’ ERA might be ugly, but Royals fans shouldn’t cringe when he comes off the DL. Strikeouts are valuable, and Davies can provide them on a staff that desperately needs them.

Police press ahead in search for other suspects in beating By Joel Rubin and Andrew Blankstein Los Angeles Times

LOS ANGELES — A day after they arrested a suspect in the near fatal beating of a San Francisco Giants fan at Dodger Stadium, Los Angeles police detectives pressed ahead Monday with the search for two outstanding suspects, while senior LAPD officials scrambled to mitigate the potential damage done to the investigation by a news leak. Early Sunday police took Giovanni Ramirez into custody. Ramirez, 31, a documented gang member, is accused of being one of two men who attacked Bryan Stow on March 31 in the stadium parking lot after the rival teams played. Stow, 42, suffered brain damage in the attack and remains hospitalized in critical condition. Ramirez is being held on $1 million bail. Prosecutors have not formally charged him. Still at large is the second assailant and a woman who police said drove the men away from the stadium. Police largely remained silent on the status of the hunt, saying only that detectives continued to pursue solid leads on the pair.

Detectives were also preparing to conduct lineups later in the week with multiple witnesses to the attack. The lineups, during which witnesses are asked if they recognized anyone in the group as the attacker, are generally considered stronger evidence than when a witness picks a suspect out of a series of photographs. But those plans hit a snag late Monday afternoon when some news media outlets published on their websites a leaked mugshot of Ramirez that is part of the file kept on him by parole agents. The leak infuriated senior police officials, who worried it would compromise their case if any of the witnesses saw the image before attending the lineup. In an attempt to minimize the chances that witnesses would see the photo, the department rushed to contact news outlets, asking those that had posted the image to remove it and requesting others to refrain from doing so until after the lineups. Chris Little, news director at radio station KFI AM 640, said his station took the photo off its website once it learned of the LAPD’s concerns. The photo was viewable for several minutes.

Mets owner Wilpon tears into team to ‘New Yorker’ NEW YORK (AP) — Jose Reyes isn’t worth all the money he wants. Carlos Beltran is no longer a top-tier player. David Wright isn’t a superstar. Those aren’t merely the opinions of some disgruntled New York Mets fan. Those thoughts come straight from the owner of the team. Fred Wilpon had sharp words for the All-Stars and his teetering team in a newly released profile in “The New

Yorker.” He made the comments during the Mets’ 4-3 loss to Houston on April 20. “Lousy clubs, that’s what happens,” Wilpon remarked after the Mets missed an early chance to score, then gave up some runs. “We’re snake-bitten, baby.” Reyes can become a free agent at the end of the season. There’s been speculation the shortstop wants a contract similar to the $142 million, seven-

year deal that Carl Crawford signed in the offseason. “He’s a racehorse,” Wilpon said of the often-injured speedster. “He thinks he’s going to get Carl Crawford money,” he said. “He’s had everything wrong with him. He won’t get it.” Beltran is finishing up a $119 million, seven-year contract the outfielder signed with the Mets after his monster 2004 postseason for Houston,

when he hit eight homers and scored 21 runs in 12 playoff games. “We had some schmuck in New York who paid him based on that one series,” Wilpon said, referring to himself. “He’s 65 to 70 percent of what he was.” As for Wright, Wilpon said the third baseman is “a really good kid. A very good player.” “Not a superstar,” Wilpon said.

In a statement released by his agent, Wright said: “Fred is a good man and is obviously going through some difficult times. There is nothing more productive that I can say at this time.” The Mets are 22-24 and were off Monday. They start a series tonight against the Chicago Cubs at Wrigley Field. In a statement, the team said: “We are handling the matter internally.”

Much of the magazine story focuses on Wilpon and his Mets getting caught in Bernard Madoff ’s Ponzi scheme. Madoff told “The New Yorker” that Wilpon “must feel that I betrayed him, as do most of my friends who were involved.” “I don’t think Fred could be a nicer guy than he is,” Madoff said. “He obviously loves baseball and loves the team.”

Mavs’ huge rally stuns Thunder in OT OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Trailing by 15 points with only 5 minutes to play in one of the NBA’s rowdiest arenas, the Dallas Mavericks were just wishing and hoping for the best. Dirk Nowitzki and Jason Kidd delivered, and the Mavs suddenly find themselves only one win away from the NBA finals. Nowitzki scored 40 points, Kidd hit the go-ahead threepointer with 40 seconds left in overtime, and the Mavericks staged an improbable rally to stun the Oklahoma City Thunder, 112-105, on Monday night and take a 3-1 lead in the Western Conference finals. “You’re lying if you’re not surprised. Down 15 with five minutes to play you’re thinking hopefully something can happen,” Dallas center Brendan Haywood said. “You’re just kind of wishing.” Dallas didn’t lead until Nowitzki hit two free throws 16 seconds into overtime, needing to rally from a 99-84 deficit in the final five minutes of regulation. The Mavericks never let the Thunder — who were one win shy of tying an NBA record with eight OT wins in the regular season — go ahead in the extra period. “There’s times and situations where they are going to test the courage and the mental inner strength of your

Durant finished with 29 points and 15 rebounds, and Serge Ibaka had 18 points and 10 boards for Oklahoma City. Russell Westbrook added 19 points, eight rebounds and eight assists.

How former Jayhawks fared Cole Aldrich, Oklahoma City Did not play (coach’s decision) Nick Collison, Oklahoma City Pts: 12. FGs: 5-7. FTs: 2-2.

The Thunder suffered their first consecutive losses of the postseason and first back-toback home losses in six months. Only two teams have come back from 3-1 deficits in NBA history without the benefit of home-court advantage in Game 7 — Houston in the 1995 West semifinals and Boston in the 1968 East finals. “There’s no doubt it was a tough loss,” Oklahoma City coach Scott Brooks said. “If this loss did not hurt, there’s no such thing as a loss that can hurt you.” Game 5 is Wednesday night in Dallas. “We worked really hard these two games to win, and none of that guarantees anything for Game 5. We know that,” said coach Rick Carlisle, whose Mavs have won at least 50 games in 11 straight seasons with no titles and only one trip to the NBA finals to show for it. “All of us involved with this team have been through a lot of these wars. We understand

our position that we’re in. We respect it. We’re very humble about it. We’ve got to get ourselves revved up and ready for Wednesday, because that’s an opportunity.” Durant had nine of the Thunder’s 26 turnovers, including the one that led to the big shot by the 38-year-old Kidd. Kidd stripped him as he went up for a shot with just over a minute left in overtime, then took a pass from Nowitzki, pump-faked to get Westbrook in the air and stepped up to drill a three-pointer to put Dallas up 108-105 with 40.3 seconds left. Kidd scored 17 to go with seven assists, five rebounds and four steals. “Everybody asks questions about the age and all that other stuff,” Carlisle said, “but the thing I’d say to anybody is, ‘Never underestimate greatness.”’ Westbrook missed on a drive on Oklahoma City’s next possession, and Terry hit two free throws with 13 seconds left to give the Mavs a two-possession lead. Durant finally got another shot off, squatting with his head hanging down as Kidd walked up for two free throws to provide the final margin. “We kept believing,” Nowitzki said. “I think finally we got some rebounds. I think that was killing us all night long.”

CHICAGO’S JOAKIM NOAH sits on the bench during the Bulls’ meeting with the Heat in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference finals on Sunday in Miami.

MIAMI (AP) — Chicago Bulls center Joakim Noah was fined $50,000 on Monday for directing an anti-gay slur at a fan during Game 3 of the Eastern Conference finals, and vowed to learn from the incident. The NBA released its decision hours after speaking with Noah, saying the fine was “for using a derogatory and offensive term from the bench.” The fine is only half of what Los Angeles Lakers’ star Kobe Bryant was assessed for shouting the same slur toward a referee last month, and the league said the discrepancy was because the sanction against Bryant was based on both what he said — and who he said it to. “Kobe’s fine included discipline for verbal abuse of a game official,” NBA spokesman Mark Broussard said.

Bulls’ goal: Just win ————

Chicago needs victory tonight at Miami to reclaim upper hand MIAMI (AP) — All the Chicago Bulls say they need to do now is something they’ve already managed 71 times this season, more than any other team in the league. Win a game. It’s that simple. No need for cluttered thinking now. Even after everything that has gone wrong in the last two games of the Eastern Conference finals against the Miami Heat — who have handed the Bulls their first two-game losing streak since February — Chicago knows it can reclaim the upper hand in the series by winning Game 4 in Miami tonight. Thing is, the Heat know that sort of thinking as well, since they had the same thoughts after a Game 1 blowout loss in Chicago. “All we’ve done to this point is do exactly what they did at home,” Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said Monday as practice wound down. “They won the first game at home and we have to find a way in a possession game to come out ahead again tomorrow night. There is not going to be one easy possession in this series.” Chicago can attest to that. Defense was clearly going to be the norm in this series, with the Bulls and Heat ranking 1-2 in field-goal percentage defense. Chicago has managed 160 points in Games 2 and 3, its lowest two-game total of the season, and keying on reigning NBA MVP Derrick Rose has been the biggest — and most obvious — key. Rose is 15 for 42 from the floor in Chicago’s last two losses.

PLAYOFFS AT A GLANCE CONFERENCE FINALS Sunday Miami 96, Chicago 85, Miami leads series 2-1 Monday Dallas 112, Oklahoma City 105, OT, Dallas leads series 3-1 Today Chicago at Miami, 7:30 p.m. Wednesday Oklahoma City at Dallas, 8 p.m. Thursday Miami at Chicago, 7:30 p.m. Friday x-Dallas at Oklahoma City, 8 p.m. Saturday x-Chicago at Miami, 7:30 p.m. Sunday, May 29 x-Oklahoma City at Dallas, 8 p.m. Monday, May 30 x-Miami at Chicago, 7:30 p.m.

The Heat want Rose to try to do it alone. After all, not wanting to have one star option — and only one star option — is why Dwyane Wade, LeBron James and Chris Bosh came together in the first place. “There’s a reason why we’re playing together,” Wade said. “After so many years of that, you want to do something else. That’s the reason we’re playing together. But he has a good team. ... He’s in a little different world than we were in.” But to hear the Bulls tell it, defense let them down more than offense. “We have to bring more intensity to the game,” Rose said Monday, after the Bulls met at their downtown hotel and took a break from the practice grind. “We have to be

the first to the floor, first on the rebounding side. Guards still have to get in and rebound and help the bigs. And we have to play more aggressive on both ends. Way more.” In short, the Bulls will be desperate. James says there’s only one way he and the Heat can answer that. “We’re playing desperate too,” James said. “Both teams are playing hard. We’re just as desperate as they are to win another game at home.” Sunday was an emotional grind for the Bulls, for so many reasons. It started with questions about an interview Rose gave in which he allegedly said NBA players use performance-enhancing drugs — something he emphatically denied later in the day. Then Joakim Noah used an anti-gay slur in an exchange with a fan during the first quarter, and didn’t score another point the rest of the night. Noah met with NBA officials on Monday, after which he again apologized for his remark. Oh, on top of it all, the Bulls lost 96-85, which left Noah pointing toward a line Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau has used often this season. “Thibs always talks about walking through a fire together,” Noah said. “That’s what it’s all about. You win Game 1, there is a lot of love after the game. You lose two, it’s like the end of the world. But if we can get this one on Tuesday tied up going home, that would be a good position to be in.”

Noah and NBA officials met Monday morning. Noah said he emerged from that talk prepared to “pay the price” for what happened when he returned to the bench with two fouls midway through the first quarter of Sunday night’s game against the Miami Heat. That price turned out to be 1.6 percent of his roughly $3.1 million salary this season. Noah agreed to an extension last year, worth about $60 million through the 2015-16 season. Meanwhile, two major advocacy groups quickly called upon the league to both sanction Noah and help further educate players on the topic. “The fan said something that was disrespectful towards me,” Noah said, about five hours before the fine was

announced. “And I went back at him. Got it on camera. I don’t want to hurt anybody’s feelings. Anybody who knows me knows that I’m not like that. I’m an open-minded guy. I said the wrong thing and I’m going to pay the consequences — deal with the consequences — like a man. I don’t want to be a distraction to the team right now.” Television cameras captured Noah saying an expletive, followed by the slur. Noah said he did not realize the gravity of the situation until he was questioned by reporters after the game Sunday, adding that he meant “no disrespect” to anyone. Bryant was fined $100,000 last month, and just last week, Phoenix Suns president and CEO Rick Welts revealed he was gay, a rare acknowledge-

ment for someone holding a prominent position in men’s sports. “We know what business we are in,” Heat forward LeBron James said Monday. “Emotions get played. ... I don’t think it was right what he said. But emotions do get said over the course of the game. We know there’s going to be microphones. We know there’s going to be cameras around. You just have to be cautious about what you say and just try to control your emotions as much as possible.” The Heat won Sunday’s game 96-85, taking a 2-1 lead in the best-of-seven series. Game 4 is tonight in Miami. The Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation, or GLAAD, said it reached out to the NBA and the Bulls on Monday “to discuss next steps.”

Djokovic, 38-0 in 2011, wins first match in Paris P A R I S ( A P ) — Shhhhhh! Don’t say a word. Novak Djokovic is perfect so far in 2011 , and superstition demands silence, lest he be jinxed. Djokovic himself insists he isn’t keeping tabs on his unbeaten run, which reached 38-0 this season — and 40 consecutive victories dating to December — thanks to a 62, 6-1, 6-3 victory over Thiemo de Bakker of the Netherlands in the f irst round of the French Open on Monday. “I’m not counting,” the second-seeded Djokovic said with a smile. “I’m not trying to think about the streak that I have,” he added, “even though it’s definitely something that makes me proud.” Others certainly are thinking about it. Indeed, it’s the talk of the year’s second Grand Slam tournament. Straight-set victories Monday

at Roland Garros by other top players such as Roger Federer, top-seeded Caroline Wozniacki or defending champion Francesca Schiavone — and even 2010 semifinalist Tomas Berdych’s surprising five-set loss to a French qualifier — didn’t merit as much attention as Djokovic did. The Serb, who won his second Australian Open title in January, is closing in on the Open era record for best start to a tennis season by a man, John McEnroe’s 42-0 in 1984. He’s also only the sixth man in the Open era to win 40 matches in a row; Guillermo Vilas set the high of 46 in 1977. But Djokovic’s pals on tour aren’t exactly making a big deal about it at the moment. “In the beginning — I know him very well — I’d kind of joke, ‘Hey, let someone else win.’ ... Now you almost stay away. It’s almost like a pitcher going for a no-hitter,” said the

highest-seeded American, No. 10 Mardy Fish, who beat Ricardo Mello of Brazil 6-2, 67 (11), 6-2, 6-4. “I don’t want to be the guy that says, ‘Hey, by the way, you’re 38-0, or whatever he is. Don’t lose.’ I don’t want to be that guy, and then have him lose,” Fish said. Back on April 1, Djokovic moved to 23-0 this season by beating Fish in the semifinals in Key Biscayne, Fla. Djokovic then defeated No. 1-ranked Rafael Nadal in the final there, part of a 7-0 mark against him and Federer in 2011. Victories over Nadal — who begins his bid for a record-tying sixth title at Roland Garros today — on clay at Madrid and Rome this month have many believing Djokovic could become the first man to win the Australian Open and French Open in the same year since Jim Courier in 1992.

Armstrong backed by UCI over doping claims LONDON (AP) — In the wake of fresh doping allegations against Lance Armstrong, cycling’s world governing body and one of his former teammates came to the defense of the seven-time Tour de France champion on Monday. Tyler Hamilton, another ex-teammate of Armstrong, says he witnessed the American take performanceenhancing drugs before or during the 1999, 2000 and 2001 Tours while with the U.S. Postal team. However, team rider Viatcheslav Ekimov says he never saw Armstrong do any of the things Hamilton described. The International Cycling Union also denied claims from Hamilton that it helped cover up a positive sample submitted by Armstrong at the Tour de Suisse in 2001. “The UCI is deeply shocked by the seriousness of the allegations made on the ‘60 Minutes’ program aired by U.S. television network CBS,”

the organization said in a statement. “The allegations of Mr. Tyler Hamilton are completely unfounded.” Ekimov, who rode with Armstrong as he won the Tour from 2000-05 and is now RadioShack’s team manager, referred to Hamilton as a “liar” and suggested he has ulterior motives in making his revelations now. “Behind his story is something,” Ekimov said. “First of all, it’s untrue. And behind his story is some money or some stimulation. Because why did this guy just crack now? Why didn’t he do it in 2005? ... I call these guys liars. First they lie about the innocence, now they lie about something else. “I think it’s just money. It seems to me like somebody really wants to kill Lance and put him down. There’s all this interest to find people who will say something.” Hamilton twice has been banned for doping. Armstrong has denied doping and has never tested positive.

Hamilton said Armstrong told him of a positive sample he submitted in 2001, claiming the Texan made a deal with the UCI and they “figured out a way for it to go away.” But the UCI “categorically rejected” the accusation, insisting it had “never altered or hidden the results of a positive test.” The organization also said Armstrong had never been notified of a positive finding. “The UCI can only express its indignation at this latest attempt to damage the image of cycling by a cyclist who has not hesitated to abuse the trust of all followers of cycling on several occasions in the past,” the statement said. “The UCI can only confirm that Lance Armstrong has never been notified of a positive test result by any antidoping laboratory. ... Once again, the UCI wishes to state that no manipulation or cover up has occurred in respect of its anti-doping procedures.”

Annie’s Mailbox

Marcy Sugar and Kathy Mitchell

Dear Desperate: Parents should avoid getting too involved in their child’s marital issues. If you didn’t want your daughter driving late at night, you should have discussed it with her instead of getting into a fight with your son-in-law. But it doesn’t surprise us that he broadcast your argument on Facebook. Sharing such private, nasty details with the world is a sign of immaturity. Still, for your daughter’s sake, please work on improving your

Moody turns crabby on ‘Deadliest Catch’ “Deadliest Catch” (8 p.m., Discovery) explores a tale of a captain at war with his crew, a theme much explored in films like “Mr. Roberts,” “Mutiny on the Bounty” and “The Caine Mutiny.” Beset with a meager crab harvest, Capt. Derek Ray is rather fed up with the hands on the Cornelia Marie. As replacement for the late Phil Harris, he has run up against the attitudes of his men, including the sons of the late skipper who also have an ownership stake in the Cornelia Marie. Convinced that Jake Harris has been furtively smoking marijuana below deck, Capt. Ray takes the extreme, but apparently all but mandated, step of calling the Dutch Harbor cops on the disgruntled youth. It would be giving away too much to reveal the fates of Harris the Younger or the wrapped-tootight Capt. Ray. Suffice it to say, the crab haul is the last thing on their minds when they hit the harbor. ● A season of competition concludes on “Dancing with the Stars” (8 p.m., ABC) on the same night that the two last contestants sing to survive on “American Idol” (7 p.m., Fox). Those fretful that such showcases are ending can take solace in the fact that “The Voice” (8 p.m., NBC) — guest-starring Reba tonight — is still in full swing. And “So You Think You Can Dance” begins its summer season on Thursday. ● “Frontline” (8 p.m., PBS, check local listings) presents “Wikisecrets,” exploring the largest leak of classified documents in American history. It profiles Wikileaks founder Julian Assange and Army intelligence analyst Bradley E. Manning, who is currently charged with funneling secret documents to Assange’s site. ● DVDs available today include the fiveDVD set “The Unknown War,” a 20episode 1978 documentary series about the epic World War II battles between Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union. Burt Lancaster hosts and narrates. Also available today is “The Best of the Dean Martin Variety Show,” a time capsule of topical comedy from talent ranging from Rodney Dangerf ield, Dom DeLuise and Nipsey Russell to Woody Allen and Orson Welles. Martin’s show ran from 1965 to 1974 and featured hundreds of comics, musicians and dancers from that period.

Tonight’s other highlights ● “Glee” fans can anticipate the seasonender with the 1963 musical “Bye Bye Birdie” (3:30 p.m., TCM). ● A winner of sorts emerges on “Biggest Loser” (7 p.m., NBC). ● “Craft in America” (7 p.m., PBS, check local listings) explores various local styles. ● Poppy Montgomery stars in the 2005 true-life tabloid tale “Murder in the Hamptons” (7 p.m., Lifetime Movie Network). Good trashy fun. ● The Nationals bring the gang to New York City on the season finale of “Glee” (8 p.m., Fox). ● A sergeant’s murder resonates on “NCIS: Los Angeles” (8 p.m., CBS). ● A Tennessee town adjusts to rapid changes in population due to immigration and other demographic shifts on “Welcome to Shelbyville” on “Independent Lens” (9 p.m., PBS, check local listings).

Dear Annie: My daughter recently married and had a baby. The problem is my sonin-law. I have tried to like him, but it’s hard. He is in the military in another state, and my daughter lives at home in order to finish college. It was his idea to save money by having her live here instead of renting an apartment. When the baby was born, my son-in-law was very affectionate with his child. After six weeks, however, he changed and wouldn’t hold the baby anymore. Then he stopped coming by and wouldn’t even call my daughter to see how she was doing. Eventually, he asked for a separation, blaming my daughter for their problems. My daughter decided to visit him and left the baby with me. They reconciled, and she called to say they were going to take their child and leave town together. Fine. But my daughter drove her husband back to base and arrived here in the middle of the night. She then left immediately with the baby. I was angry. Why didn’t her husband tell her to spend the night instead of waking the baby and risking their lives by driving when she was so tired? I know I shouldn’t have, but I told him off in a text message. I couldn’t help myself. I said he was
