Lawmaker suggests victims ‘plan ahead’ for being raped By Scott Rothschild email@example.com

TOPEKA — Without comment, Gov. Sam Brownback has signed into law a bill that critics say will hurt women who get impregnated after being raped. They criticized the House sponsor of the measure, Rep. Pete DeGraaf, R-Mulvane, for comments he made during debate, which opponents said trivialized the horror of rape. “This attack DeGraaf on women’s rights has to stop,” Amber Versola, lobbyist for Kansas NOW, said Thursday. Brownback, an anti-abortion Republican, has already signed

ome are in plain view — such as the Memorial Campanile honoring Kansas University students who died in World War II. Others are less prominent and much smaller. Regardless of size or visibility, Douglas County features many memorials honoring people who served in wars dating back to the Bleeding Kansas days leading up to the Civil War. “I think it’s really great that this community recognizes those folks who have given their lives on our behalf,” said
Judy Billings, president of Destination Management Inc. in Lawrence. Jerry Karr, a Vietnam veteran and post commander of the Lawrence Veterans of Foreign Wars post, says it’s not surprising Douglas County has several memorials because of the area’s history with the Battle of Black Jack east of Baldwin City, Quantrill’s Raid in Lawrence and the number of residents who served in World War II and other 20th century wars. “When people lose loved ones, feelings run high and they want to have a memorial Please see MEMORIALS, page 2A

Kansas nuclear power plant not fully twister-proof By Dina Cappielo and Matthew Daly Associated Press Writers
WASHINGTON — The closest nuclear power plant to tornado-ravaged Joplin, Mo., was singled out weeks before the storm for being vulnerable to twisters. Inspections triggered by Japan’s nuclear crisis found that some emergency equipment and storage sites at the Wolf Creek nuclear plant in southeastern Kansas might not survive a tornado. Specifically, plant operators and federal inspectors said Wolf Creek did not secure equipment and vehicles needed to fight fires,
retrieve fuel for emergency generators and resupply water to keep nuclear fuel cool as it’s being moved. Despite these findings, the Nuclear Regulatory Commission concluded that the plan met requirements put in place after the Sept. 11 attacks that are designed to keep the nuclear fuel cool and containment structures intact during an emergency. Wolf Creek Nuclear Operating Corp., which runs the facility about 150 miles northwest of Joplin, said it would take action to correct the problems. “The issues affected only one of several (emergency) procedures, so we continue

to conclude Wolf Creek meets requirements, the same conclusion we’ve reached for every U.S. plant,” said Scott Burnell, a NRC spokesman. Wolf Creek, until recently, was one of three nuclear plants placed on a federal watch list in March for safety-related issues. David Lochbaum, a former nuclear plant engineer who now works on nuclear safety for the advocacy group Union of Concerned Scientists, said the equipment that a tornado could disable is the “backup of backups,” but that potential should raise

There may be light at the end of this tunnel, but it doesn’t produce much optimism. When it comes to the pedestrian tunnel that travels beneath Sixth Street near Pinckney School, the smell usually overshadows everything else. “On certain days it is scary,” said Thomas Huang, an Old West Lawrence resident who has two children who use the tunnel to walk to school. “There are days where there’s standing water and you can still smell the urine.” Then, there is the reading material. It is scrawled on the walls in the form of graffiti, and most certainly isn’t on the suggested reading list for elementary students. “I’ve continually described the area as depressed, at best,” Please see TUNNEL, page 2A

Huang said. But Huang, who also is an associate professor of industrial design at Kansas University, thinks the tunnel could be turned around. A group of his students has put together a plan that would line the tunnel with LED tiles that would create a bit of a light show as pedestrians walk through the tunnel. The current plan calls for the tunnel to emit a blue glow during the day — and then when a pedestrian passes through, an orange shadow would appear on the wall. At night, the color scheme would be flip-flopped. But there is a part of the project that may scare City Hall leaders: its cost. Public Works Director Chuck Soules estimates the improvements would cost about $600,000. “It sounds like a cool project, but on the list of priorities it may be tough to find funding for because we have all types of infrastructure and sidewalk issues,” Soules said. But Huang said he’s not expecting the city to come up with the full funding. Instead, he hopes that city commissioners will be open to the idea and allow staff members to apply for state or federal transportation grants to fund the project. But if the project won federal or state funding, the city likely would have to provide matching funds, perhaps up to 20 percent of the project’s
Blind teacher seeks Braille machine By Andy Hyland email@example.com
Christopher Tuu had some diff iculty navigating the Internet when he came to Kansas University in 2009 from his native Ghana. Now 46, Tuu just graduated from KU with a master’s degree in special education. But the technology nearly made him fail his courses, he said. While finding out how to navigate the Internet and computers could be a challenge for many who hadn’t experienced them before, Tuu has an extra hurdle: He’s blind. In Ghana, he’s a teacher at a school for the blind, and he will return to that position when he goes back next week. Members of Tuu’s church in Lawrence have been rais-

cost. Huang, though, said the city should consider it. He said the tunnel is an important piece of infrastructure that allows not only students but also adults to cross Sixth Street safely. He and his group of four students have discussed the idea with Pinckney PTO, and the Old West Lawrence and Pinckney neighborhood associations. Huang said the reception has been good, and he thinks the project could be a community-building exercise because it involves several aspects valued in the city: pedestrian-friendly design, art and education. Plus, he thinks the project would be effective in cutting down on the inappropriate activity that happens in the tunnel. “If you look at the murals around town, people tend not to mess with those,” he said. “I’m an idealist. I believe that if people think there is something beautiful worth appreciating, they are not going to mess with it.” City commissioners are tentatively scheduled to hear a presentation from Huang and his students at the June 14 City Commission meeting. — City reporter Chad Lawhorn can be reached at 832-6362.

for those people,” said Karr, a retired Lawrence-Douglas County Fire Medical division chief. Those feelings run even higher on Memorial Day weekend, as veterans, family members and the public visit memorials. Here’s a look at the wellknown (and not-so-wellknown) memorials in Douglas County:
KU Campus ● World War II Memorial Carillon and Campanile: It’s perhaps the most recognized — and most heard — memorial in Lawrence. It was built in 1950 and dedicated in 1951 to honor the 277 KU faculty, students and staff members who died in World War II. KU is in the process of cleaning it, said Jeff Weinberg, assistant to Chancellor Bernadette Gray-Little. “What I would hope that most people would know in addition to this being, ‘oh, that’s KU,” would be for them to understand why that was built, and that it memorializes those students, faculty and staff who gave their lives for their country,” said Weinberg, who has worked at KU for more than 40 years. ● Memorial Stadium and Kansas Memorial Union: It might be news to some people that these two campus landmarks were constructed as World War I memorials. ● Memorial Drive: The Wshaped drive connects the World War I memorials from Mississippi Street with the Campanile and the Korean War and Vietnam War memorials near West Campus Road. ● Korean War Memorial: On Memorial Drive behind Snow Hall, the memorial dedicated in 2005 honors 44 KU community members who died in Korea. ● Vietnam War Memorial: The 65-foot L-shaped limestone wall honors the 57 students and alumni who died or are missing in Vietnam. It was dedicated in 1986 in the first on-campus commemoration

HOW TO HELP Anyone interested in contributing to the fund for a Braille writing machine may write a check to Peace Mennonite Church, 615 Lincoln St., with “Christopher Tuu” in the memo line. ing money for a Braille writing machine for Tuu that translates the words on a computer screen into readable Braille and also will read them aloud. Thomas Heilke, a KU political science professor who attends Peace Mennonite Church, said church members and other friends had raised all but about $1,650 necessary for the machine. Fundraising continues. Church members saw it not just as a way of helping Christopher, Heilke said, but
as something Tuu could use as a teaching tool in the school in Ghana. “If they had the same experiences as me, they would not have to go through the same hell,” Tuu said. Tuu, who came to KU on a Ford Foundation fellowship, became blind after a bout with measles as a child. He later decided he needed to help others like himself. “When I was in high school, all my hope was to become a teacher,” he said. “I saw the need to advocate for other people with disabilities.” He hopes to be able to share the Braille machine with his students someday soon. — Higher education reporter Andy Hyland can be reached at 832-6388.

The ceremony will include a rifle volley, the playing of taps and a two-bell ceremony, said Ed Mount, the legion’s post commander. ● Fort Leavenworth National in the nation of the controversial war. ● Pioneer Cemetery: Some of the earliest victims of Bleeding Kansas border violence were buried at the cemetery just west of Iowa Street and south of Irving Hill Road. Most Bleeding Kansas victims were reburied later at Oak Hill Cemetery, according to KU, but there is a monument to Thomas K. Barber who was murdered by proslavery partisans in 1855.
Memorials elsewhere in Douglas County and Lawrence ● Veterans Park: The city park at 19th and Louisiana streets was at one time the site of barracks for military students and trainees before it became a park in 1947 in honor of veterans of all wars. ● Oak Hill Cemetery: The cemetery at 1605 Oak Hill Ave. in east Lawrence, includes a Union soldier memorial in Section 7 and a large marker in Section 3 that honors the victims of Quantrill’s Raid on Aug. 21, 1863, in Lawrence. ● Eldridge Hotel: A plaque at the entrance to the historic hotel, 701 Mass., commemorates the site of the Free State Hotel that was burned to the ground during Quantrill’s Raid. ● Liberty Memorial Central Middle School: The school at 1400 Mass. recently was renamed to restore part
Cemetery: The annual Memorial Day ceremony will be at 11:40 a.m. Monday at the cemetery. In case of inclement weather, it will be moved to the Frontier Conference Center next to the cemetery.

Also, a monument at Baldwin City’s Oakwood Cemetery honors Union soldiers who died in the Civil War. ● Constitution Hall in Lecompton: The site today is celebrated for the passage of a pro-slavery constitution, which led to a split in the national Democratic Party. Historians credit the development for allowing Abraham Lincoln to be elected president with only 39 percent of the vote in 1860. ● Robinson Park: The small park just west of Lawrence City Hall, south of the Kansas River Bridge, includes a rock monument honoring Lawrence’s founders. — Reporter George Diepenbrock can be reached at 832-7144.

Obama signs Patriot Act extension Minutes before a midnight deadline Thursday, the White House said President Barack Obama had signed a bill that extends post-Sept. 11 powers to search records and conduct roving wiretaps in pursuit of terrorists. The law adds four years to the legal life of roving wiretaps — those authorized for a person rather than a communications line or device — of courtordered searches of business records and of surveillance of non-American “lone wolf” suspects without confirmed ties to terrorist groups. Earlier Thursday, Congress passed the measure with votes taken in rapid succession in the Senate and House that came after lawmakers rejected attempts to temper the law enforcement powers to ensure that individual liberties are not abused. With Obama currently in France, the White House said the president used an autopen machine that holds a pen and signs his actual signature. It is only used with proper authorization of the president.
Woman sentenced to 8 years in prison for locking son in attic By Laura Herring firstname.lastname@example.org
OLATHE — A woman charged with locking her malnourished son in the attic of her De Soto home was sentenced to more than eight years in prison Thursday morning. Johnson County District Judge Peter Ruddick gave Rachel Perez the maximum sentence for each of these counts: ● Attempted second-degree murder, 61 months. ● Child abuse, 34 months.
● Aggravated child endangerment, seven months. Perez pleaded guilty to all three charges March 18. Perez’s 6- Perez year-old son was found Aug. 19 by Johnson County Sheriff’s deputies who came to the home at the request of Perez’s grandmother, Patricia Moran.
The sentence that Ruddick handed down is significantly more than the 60 to 61 months Perez’s attorney, Jason Billiam, asked for in light of the lateadded charge of attempted murder. “This case began with just the charges of child abuse and aggravated child endangerment and that’s truly what this case is about,” Billiam said before the court. “The charge of attempted murder was just added to Please see MOTHER, page 5A

White House wants to curb regulations Oil spill prevention requirements will no longer apply to spilled milk. Gasoline pumps wouldn’t need devices for trapping vapor pollutants, and there would be fewer bureaucratic hurdles for doctors who want to dispense medical advice to a distant patient. These were among hundreds of existing regulations that the Obama administration said Thursday it wants to revamp or eliminate in a government-wide effort to ease burdens on business. Overall, the drive would save hundreds of millions of dollars annually for companies, governments and individuals and eliminate millions of hours of paperwork while maintaining health and safety protections for Americans, White House officials said. “The president believes we need to be very careful to make sure small businesses have room to grow,” said Cass Sunstein, President Barack Obama’s regulatory chief, who described the plans in a speech to the conservative American Enterprise Institute.

Siesta Beach named best in nation After years as a head-turning bridesmaid in the best-beach rankings, Sarasota’s Siesta Beach is finally the bride. The wide slice of brilliant white sand and warm, emerald water on Florida’s southwest Gulf coast was named the best beach in the United States Friday in an annual survey by Florida International University professor Steven Leatherman, who is also known by the friendly nickname “Dr. Beach.” Siesta Beach, 40 acres of almost pure quartz crystal sand on the Siesta Key barrier island, was runnerup in Leatherman’s rankings the past two years and was third in 2008. “The sand is like sugar,” said Leatherman, director of FIU’s Laboratory for Coastal Research. “Some people can’t believe it. You have to bring sunglasses because it’s so bright. It’s super soft, super fine. They claim to have the finest, whitest sand in the world, and I can’t argue with that.”

Clyde Peacock, Haskell’s vice president for university services, is serving as interim president. The presidential search began after Linda Warner resigned Nov. 1 after having been sent to handle other duties off campus since September 2009.

War-weary Republicans and Democrats on Thursday sent the strongest message yet to President Barack Obama to end the war in Afghanistan as the commander in chief decides how many U.S. troops to withdraw this summer. A measure requiring an accelerated timetable for pulling out the 100,000 troops from Afghanistan and an exit strategy for the nearly 10-year-old conflict secured 204 votes in the House, falling just short of passage but boosting the hopes of its surprised proponents. “It sends a strong signal to the president that the U.S. House of Representatives and the American people want change,” Rep. Jim McGovern, D-Mass., said shortly after the vote. Obama will begin drawing down some of the troops in July, with all combat forces due out by 2014. McGovern and others fear that the initial reduction will be a token cut of some 5,000, numbers they argue fail to reflect that Osama bin Laden is gone and the United States can’t afford spending $10 billion a month on the war.

Patients at Kansas University Hospital are enrolling in a clinical trial that will test a new treatment for a kind of heart disease. The study is testing the Medtronic CoreValve System, a procedure that uses a catheter to guide a prosthetic device to a patient’s diseased aortic valve. The device then expands and replaces the valve. HEALTH “This is a technology that’s allowing us to help people who previously didn’t have any other option,” said Susie Page, a registered nurse and research coordinator for the clinical trial. The treatment will be used for patients with severe aortic stenosis, Page said. That disease affects the aortic valve of the heart, and prevents it from properly opening and closing.

The 2011 NBA Draft will take place at 6 p.m. CDT June 23 at the Prudential Center in Newark, N.J. For the past several years, the draft has been at Madison Square Garden in New York City. However, renovations to the Garden forced the NBA to relocate for the 2011 draft. The Kansas University men’s program is likely to have three former players drafted in this year’s event. Twins Marcus and Markieff Morris are regarded as early-to-mid firstround selections, and Josh Selby also is expected to be picked in the first or second round.

LAWRENCE ON THE RECORD
LAW ENFORCEMENT REPORT • Douglas County prosecutors Thursday filed a misdemeanor battery charge against a 26year-old Lawrence man who was accused of punching his roommate in the mouth during a fight Tuesday evening at their apartment in the 2400 block of Alabama Street. Chad Kasey Kidd appeared in front of a judge Thursday afternoon on the charge. Sgt. Matt Sarna, a Lawrence police spokesman, said Kidd was arrested Thursday evening after his roommate, a 32-year-old Lawrence man, alleged Kidd injured him during an argument about living arrangements. The roommate was treated for an injury at Lawrence Memorial Hospital, Sarna said. • Douglas County Sheriff’s officers arrested a 26-year-old Lawrence man Thursday afternoon as a suspect in connection with a fight that occurred at Wells Overlook Park on County Road 458 south of Lawrence. Sgt. Steve Lewis, a sheriff’s spokesman, said no one was hospitalized in connection with the incident reported at 12:45 p.m. Thursday. The suspect was arrested on an aggravated battery charge. The Journal-World generally does not identify suspects unless they are formally charged. • A 47-year-old Lawrence woman reported to police that someone burglarized her residence in the 4800 block of West
24th Street taking $3,890 worth of mostly jewelry. The burglary occurred between May 4 and May 13. • A 31-year-old Spring Hill woman was taken to Olathe Medical Center on Thursday morning after her vehicle struck a deer on Kansas Highway 10 east of De Soto, according to the Kansas Highway Patrol. Jolene A. Kingston suffered a possible injury in the crash that occurred about 7:30 a.m. in the westbound lanes of K-10 just east of Cedar Creek Parkway, according to the accident report. A deer ran across the highway from south to north and collided with the 2010 Chevrolet car Kingston was driving. Kingston and her passenger, 37year-old Kevin Kingston of Spring Hill who was not injured, both wore seat belts. A hospital spokesman said Thursday morning Kingston was LAWRENCE treated and released. 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.

increase my client’s potential time. It doesn’t make sense.” As he had in Perez’s earlier court appearances, Billiam argued that Perez never showed intent to kill her son, who has Down syndrome and weighed less than 20 pounds when he was rescued from her attic. “I love my son, he’s my baby,” said Perez in her final plea to the court. “I don’t know why I did what I did, I just panicked at the thought of losing him (to social services).” Perez presented photos of her son and two daughters taken before her arrest and the boy’s hospitalization, stating they showed proof of her love for her children. The foster mother for the children, Stacy Eastwood, the children’s great-aunt, also spoke before the court, asking that Perez receive the maximum sentence. She testified about the boy demonstrating the abuse he claims to have received from Perez, hands around his throat and punches being thrown at him, and spoke about the confusion experienced by Perez’s daughters. “These girls have overwhelming feelings of guilt and helplessness, (the boy)

One member has seen Shepherd’s work up close. Guy Presser remembers driving Shepherd back to work from a Kiwanis meeting in the 1980s after he had recruited her to speak at the day’s meeting. She persuaded him to participate in the Citizen Review Board of Douglas County, a court-based child advocacy. He’s now the board’s longestserving volunteer. “Judge Shepherd has devoted her judgeship to helping kids, and that’s been her focus,” Presser said after the award presentation. Shepherd received a plaque and had three guests surprise her: her former court administrative assistant Debbie Hart; Douglas County CASA executive director Diana Frederick; and Heather Krase-Minnick, director of the Citizen Review Board. Shepherd started both programs to help advocate for children. “I’m honored to have my name put with all of these wonderful, fabulous people,” she said. — Reporter George Diepenbrock can be reached at 832-7144.

suffers from PTSD (posttraumatic stress disorder), we try to help them heal from their past but we can’t know what they went through,” Eastwood said. “For Rachel Perez to receive a sentence that would be less than how long her son has been alive would be a great injustice in my eyes.” Ruddick agreed with Eastwood, handing down the maximum sentence. COURTS “Ms. Perez and her attorney keep trying to make a logical explanation for her actions, but I f ind them unfathomable regardless,” he said. “The maximum sentence in this case is still not terribly long, given what happened to her son.” The boy is recovering well, and Moran estimated he weighs at least 45 pounds. Perez’s youngest child, a boy born while she was in custody, is also in foster care but it is unknown where. “All three of the kids are doing great, they’re with fantastic foster parents,” Moran said. “We (Moran and Perez’s father, Martin Foster) still get to see them and they’re in good hands.”

The treatment does not require open-heart surgery, which many patients with aortic stenosis are unable to withstand. The minimally invasive treatment is in use in Europe, and is now approved in more than 35 countries. KU Hospital is one of 40 clinical sites for the trial across the country. Page said evaluators hope to enroll 1,300 patients in the study nationwide. Hospital spokesman Bob Hallinan said similar trials where the hospital partners with an outside company are common. Page said KU Hospital was chosen because of its dedication to higher-risk patients and because of its facilities and modern technology.
Special Olympians and law enforcement officers will carry the torch for the first mile of the run from Lawrence, said Sgt. Steve Lewis, a sheriff’s spokesman. Last year local participants in the Torch Run raised more than $3,500 for the Special Olympics.

Douglas County law enforcement officers and prosecutors are gearing up for next week’s run from Lawrence to Ottawa as part of the 30th annual Law Enforcement Torch Run to benefit Kansas Special Olympics. The Lawrence-to-Ottawa 20-mile leg will begin after 8 a.m. Tuesday at Crown Toyota Scion, 3430 Iowa, and runners will head south on U.S. High-
way 59 carrying the Special Olympics torch — eventually handing it off to Franklin County officers and prosecutors in Ottawa. The leg will be split among 35 runners representing the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office, Lawrence Police Department, Douglas County District Attorney’s Office and Kansas Highway Patrol. The Torch of Hope will arrive June 3 in Wichita after being carried across the state for the start of the Special Olympics.

TOPEKA — Insured property damage in April hit $502.5 million, a Kansas record for one month. “The wind and hailstorms of April 3 and April 8 accounted for the majority of the claims reported for the property damage losses,” said Kansas Insurance Commissioner Sandy Praeger. The April 3 storms were concentrated in northeast Kansas, and the April 8 wind and hailstorms hit Wichita and other parts of south-central Kansas. The previous one-month record was $337.5 million in June 2008. Including the April damage, 2011 losses stand at $531.5 million for the year, which is already the fourthhighest annual total since the state started keeping records in the early 1990s, Praeger said. Praeger said the record losses in April have been partly driven by higher material and labor costs. “Our department will continue to monitor the property insurance companies in Kansas to make sure policyholders are treated fairly, and companies maintain financial — De Soto Explorer reporter Laura Herring resources to pay claims,” she can be reached at 913-585-1616. said.

Geocaching search begins By Christine Metz email@example.com
HOW IT WORKS
Most of us like to leave technology behind when we venture into nature. But the Kansas Department of Wildlife and Parks hopes the appeal of technology will draw more visitors into the wild, or at least to state parks. Today, KDWP will launch its fourth annual geocaching contest. Geocaching is a kind of modern-day hide-and-seek game where enthusiasts can track down hidden caches using coordinates entered into GPS devices, navigation systems or smartphones. This year, two caches are hidden in each of the KDWP’s 26 state parks, four wildlife areas and at its headquarters. They are hidden in Army surplus ammo boxes. At noon today, the KDWP will release the coordinates for the first geocache on each of the 31 sites. Inside the first geocache at each site will be the coordinates for the second one. Prizes are given to those who find the geocaches in all 31 sites. “It was conceived as a way to give people something else to do and encourage them to look at parks they don’t normally go to,” said Kathy Pritchett, program services manager at KDWP. In the past, the program hasn’t gotten a lot of participation. Typically between 20 to 30 people submit entry forms for the competition. But Pritchett estimates that far more actually search for geocaches at individual parks and don’t register. Because of the low participation level, the KDWP considered doing away with the competition. “It’s a lot more work than people may realize,” Pritchett said. “But we heard from people who wanted us to do it no matter how much work it was.” Last year, six people actually made it to each of the geocache spots scattered throughout the state. The grand prize winners, who receive an annual camping permit, did it in a 10-day period. “It’s a neat way to make an excuse for people that need an excuse to go visit more parks,” Pritchett said. Geocaches are placed in areas that will introduce visitors to often overlooked features of the park, such as a nice view, historical marker or a new park development. In the past few years, Clinton
How the Kansas Department of Wildlife and Parks geocaching contest works: ● Anyone who has a hand-held GPS device or GPS-enabled cellphone can geocache. ● To access the GPS coordinates for the state geocaching competition, go to KDWP’s Web page on geocaching: kdwp.state.ks.us/news/Other-Services/Outdoor-Activities/Geocaching. The link to the GPS coordinates and entry form are near the bottom of the page. ● The KDWP has placed two geocaches at 31 sites across the state. At noon today, the KDWP will release the coordinates for the first geocaches in the state’s 31 parks, wildlife areas and state headquarters. ● Using these coordinates, participants have to find and open the first cache and sign and date the log sheet before receiving coordinates for the second cache site. ● Once participants find the second cache site and sign and date the log sheet, they should take a cache site certificate, which shows proof of finding the cache site. ● If the participant shows the certificate at the local KDWP office, they will receive a site-specific ink pen. ● Entry forms, which can be found at the website listed above, and geocache certificates must be sent to the Pratt KDWP office by Nov. 1. The forms and certificates should be mailed to Attn: 2011 Geocache, KDWP Pratt Office, 512 SE 25th Ave., Pratt, KS 67124. ● The first person to earn certificates from all 31 sites and send in those certificates will win. The first-place prize is a 2012 annual camping permit. ● The second- and third-place winners receive 14-day camping permits for 2012. ● Other geocache participants who earn all of the 31 points and turn in forms by Nov. 1 will receive a 2012 vehicle permit.
in life?” Bollier then asked, “And so, women need to plan ahead for issues that they have no control over with pregnancy?” DeGraaf then said, “I have a spare tire in my car. I also have life insurance. I have a lot of things that I plan ahead for.” Kansas NOW has put out this statement: “We have asked women across the nation to join us in telling Rep. DeGraaf that women are ‘Tired’ of legislators who trivialize the horrifying reality of rape.” Group members say they will send DeGraaf a modelsized spare tire for every $5 donation it receives. The Lawrence JournalWorld on Thursday attempted to reach DeGraaf by telephone and email. He did not respond.

into law several anti-abortion measures passed this year. The measure he approved Wednesday prohibits insurance companies from offering abortion coverage as part of their general health plans unless the procedure is necessary to save the woman’s life. Starting in July, individuals and employers who want abortion coverage would have to buy additional policies that cover only abortion. In addition, the law also states that no state or federally administered health-insurance exchange in Kansas established under the federal health care overhaul law can offer coverage for abortions, other than to save a woman’s life. The law’s supporters say it will protect employers who oppose abortion rights from having to pay for policies that cover the procedures. Versola said women who become pregnant from rape or incest and who want an abortion won’t be able to get one unless they can afford the procedure themselves or have had purchased the additional insurance. “Women cannot plan to be victims of rape and incest,” she said. Kansas NOW and other groups also are criticizing comments made by Rep. DeGraaf. During debate on May 13, an opponent of the bill, Rep. Barbara Bollier, R-Mission Hills, noted that abortions would not be covered for cases of rape and incest. According to a report by The Associated Press, DeGraaf responded, “We do need to plan ahead, don’t we,

Towns hit by twisters offer road map for rebuilding By Jim Suhr and Jim Salter
A SWATH OF DESTRUCTION in the community of Greensburg, which was ravaged by a F5 tornado in early May 2007, is seen in this June 4, 2007, file photo.
Associated Press Writers
JOPLIN , M O. — Less than a week after one of the nation’s deadliest tornadoes wiped a big chunk of Joplin off the map, the city is beginning to shift its focus toward the next challenge: rising from the ruins. And the town that gained fame as a stop along Route 66 can use the road maps drawn by other storm-savaged communities that have endured the same long journey. Not far from Joplin, tiny Pierce City and Stockton rebuilt piece by piece after tornadoes reduced much of their prized downtowns to rubble, killing four. Greensburg, Kan., did the same, starting over after a 2007 twister leveled the town and killed 11. The rebirths took years of hard work, partnerships and plain old stubborn faith. Some of the projects are still unfolding. Yet they offer a hopeful testament about beginning anew after a disaster, even if the other towns didn’t face the scale of death and decimation rendered by Sunday’s tornado that killed at least 126 people and by some estimates injured more than 900. Joplin’s half-mile-wide twister took out the city’s main hospital, the high school and possibly thousands of homes. The Walmart was flattened, along with the Home Depot. Hundreds of businesses and industrial buildings were lost. And an untold number of vehicles — from cars to tractortrailers, even the hospital helicopter — were mangled. City Manager Mark Rohr said planners are already plotting a comeback, vowing Joplin “will recover stronger than when we began.” Federal aid will help. President Barack Obama has declared disasters in Jasper and Newton counties, and a key House panel has approved a $1 billion aid package to make sure federal

concern nonetheless. “It’s kind of nuclear safety 101,” Lochbaum said. “It’s kind of stupid for it to be there, where it could help with a tornado, and a tornado takes it out.” Already this year, tornadoes have knocked out power to nuclear power plants in Alabama and Virginia, exposing vulnerabilities. At Browns Ferry in Alabama, storms disabled sirens, meaning that police and emergency personnel would have had to use telephones and loudspeakers in a crisis. At the Surry Power Station in Virginia, documents obtained by The Associated Press show that a tornado destroyed a fuel tanker used to refuel backup generator. Those instances, along with the situation at Wolf Creek, highlight a larger problem at the nation’s 104 nuclear reactors: While reactors and safety systems are designed to withstand a worst-case earthquake, flood, or tornado, that doesn’t necessarily mean all emergency equipment or the buildings that house such equipment are disaster proof. Wolf Creek’s location in Tornado Alley means that it was designed to handle the maximum tornadoes possible for the United States, with wind speeds up to 360 miles per hour and a maximum rotational speed of 290 miles per hour. But its fire truck is parked in a sheet-metal building “not protected from seismic or severe weather events,” according to the NRC inspection conducted after the Japanese disaster. Jenny Hageman, a spokeswoman for the plant, said there are other options besides on-site equipment for dealing with fires. “We are absolutely protected from a tornado,” Hageman said. “Is everything protected from a tornado on this job site? No. But we protect the critical elements.”

disaster-relief accounts don’t run out before the end of the budget year in September. Rep. Robert Aderholt, an Alabama Republican, said the move would ensure there’s enough money for victims of the Joplin tornado, as well as those suffering from flooding along the Mississippi River and last month’s twisters that swept across Alabama. A day after Joplin was crippled, Republican House Majority Leader Eric Cantor told reporters any federal aid to disaster areas may need to be offset by spending cuts. But Sen. Roy Blunt, a Missouri Republican, vowed to make sure Joplin gets all it needs. Funding questions aside, former Joplin Mayor Ron Richard, now a state senator, was a bit more cautious than Rohr in his vision for the immediate future. “I wouldn’t consider this an economic-development opportunity. This is just survival,” Richard said. “We’re just going to have to get back to where we were — as close as we can would be the goal. I’m not sure how much time it’s going to take.”
Greensburg rebuilding In southern Kansas, Greensburg was a town of about 1,500 with a declining population before a tornado roared through in May 2007, destroying 90 percent of the town in winds topping 200 mph. At the time, Steve Hewitt was a 33-year-old, first-time city manager on the job for
The NRC’s post-Japan inspections found numerous other instances where U.S. nuclear plants kept equipment needed to fight fires or to cope with a loss of electrical power in places that a flood could overwhelm or an earthquake could damage. What sets Wolf Creek apart is that it is at much greater risk of being struck by a tornado than other plants are from natural disasters. Since 1985, when the Wolf Creek plant came on line, six tornadoes have touched down in Coffey County, where the plane is located, according to the National Climatic Data Center. All of those twisters were minor, and caused no injuries or deaths. Over that same time period, the National Weather Service issued 23 tornado warnings in the county. “Before Joplin, we had a tornado in the county next to us that ripped up the city of Redding,” said Coffey County emergency management coordinator Russel Stukey. Stukey expressed skepticism about the NRC’s findings, but acknowledged that “a nuclear plant in Kansas should be prepared for a tornado. I wouldn’t go as far to say Wolf Creek is not.” Despite the close calls, including the recent series of deadly tornadoes in the South and Midwest, a twister never has struck Wolf Creek, Stukey said. NRC records show that those nuclear plants hit by a tornado have emerged largely unscathed: ● In June 2010, a tornado ripped off siding off a building housing emergency equipment and knocked out one of two power sources at the Fermi nuclear plant in Michigan. An alert was declared, and the plant was stabilized. ● Tornadoes struck the Quad Cities nuclear power plant in northwestern Illinois in 1990 and 1996. In 1990, the plant’s security fence was damaged and the roof of one building blew onto a duct that connects the radioactive waste processing area to a venting stack. No radioactive gas was released. Six years later, a tornado damaged one

only a year. He said the town approached rebuilding as an opportunity and took some time to think about it. Greensburg brought in planning consultants from a big city, held community meetings, reworked some zoning ordinances and literally shuffled the town. The school was rebuilt at a different site. City Hall was rebuilt on land that once was a car dealership, which relocated to a highertraffic spot. And Greensburg rose up as a model green community — more environmentally friendly than it ever had been, including a $50 million school with geothermal systems that rely on the Earth’s heat for warmth in the winter and cooling in the summer. Even so, the recovery is far from total. According to the 2010 census, Greenburg’s population of nearly 800 is barely half of what it was a decade ago, as is the number of businesses. Yet to be rebuilt are the town’s pharmacy, variety store and movie theater. Hewitt, who left Greensburg a few months ago to become the city manager of Clinton, Okla., knows Joplin can follow a similar path to get back on its feet. “The next weeks and months (in Joplin) will be very dark and grim,” Hewitt said. “But in that tragedy, there will be some unique bright spots, because you start to see the future develop. You’ll see a sense of community unlike they’ve probably ever witnessed.”
Some missing in Joplin turn up alive JOPLIN, MO. — As emergency workers in Joplin searched Thursday for more than 230 people listed as missing after a tornado tore through the city, one was sitting on a wooden chair outside the wreckage of her home, cuddling her cat. Sally Adams, 75, said neighbors rescued her Sunday after the storm destroyed her house and took her to a friend’s home. When The Associated Press told her she was on the missing list, Adams laughed and said “Get me off of there!” Missouri officials had said they believed many of the missing were alive and safe but simply hadn’t been in touch with friends and family, in part because cell phone service has been spotty. The AP found that was the case with at least a dozen of the 232 still unaccounted for Thursday. They included two survivors staying at a hotel, six that a relative said were staying with friends and one that a former employee said had been moved from his nursing home.

Serbia arrests war crimes suspect Mladic By Dusan Stojanovic Associated Press Writer
BELGRADE, SERBIA — After 16 years on the run, a frail and haggard Ratko Mladic was hauled before a judge Thursday — the first step in facing charges for international war crimes, including the slaughter of 8,000 Muslim men and boys in the Bosnian town of Srebrenica in 1995. No longer the fearsome, bull-necked military commander, Mladic was arrested by intelligence agents in a raid before dawn at a relative’s house in a village in northern Serbia. The act was trumpeted by the government as a victory for a country worthy of European Union membership and Western embrace. Mladic, 69, was one of the world’s most-wanted fugitives. He was the top commander of the Bosnian Serb army during Bosnia’s 1992-95
war, which killed more than 100,000 people and drove another 1.8 million from their homes. Thousands of Muslims and Croats were killed, tortured or driven out in a campaign to purge the region of non-Serbs. He was accused by the U.N. International Criminal Tribunal in The Hague, Netherlands, of genocide, crimes against humanity and war crimes for the massacre of Muslims by Bosnian Serb forces in eastern Bosnia and the relentless four-year siege of Sarajevo. On Thursday evening, Mladic walked haltingly into a closed-door extradition hearing in Belgrade, where he asserted through his attorney that he will not answer to the authority of the U.N. tribunal. The former military commander wore a navy blue jacket and a baseball hat — his gray hair sticking out of the sides —
and carried what appeared to be a towel in his left hand. He could be heard on state TV saying “good day” to someone in the courtroom, and a guard told him, “Let’s go, general.” Mladic’s lawyer, Milos Saljic, said the judge cut short the questioning because his client’s “poor physical state” left him unable to communicate. “He is aware that he is under arrest, he knows where he is, and he said he does not recognize The Hague tribunal,” Saljic said, adding that Mladic needs medical care and “should not be moved in such a state.” Belgrade B-92 radio said one of Mladic’s arms was paralyzed — probably the result of a stroke. Deputy war crimes prosecutor Bruno Vekaric said that Mladic is taking a lot of medicine, but “responds very rationally to everything that
is going on.” Extradition proceedings could take a week or more before Mladic’s expected transfer to The Hague, where he faces life imprisonment. The U.N. court has no death penalty. Judge Fouad Riad of the U.N. tribunal said there was evidence against Mladic of “unimaginable savagery.” “Thousands of men executed and buried in mass graves, hundreds of men buried alive, men and women mutilated and slaughtered, children killed before their mothers’ eyes, a grandfather forced to eat the liver of his own grandson,” Riad said during Mladic’s 1995 indictment in absentia. International law experts hope the arrest will send a message to f igures like Libya’s Moammar Gadhafi that no leader charged with a war crime can expect to escape justice forever.
Critics: Military should cover abortion after rape By David Crary Associated Press Writer
NEW YORK — Though rape is a problem of deep concern to the U.S. military, its health plan doesn’t cover abortions for victims who become pregnant — a policy that indignant critics are now pushing to change. The campaigners include members of Congress, the American Civil Liberties Union, and veterans such as Jessica Kenyon, who says her Army career derailed after she was raped and impregnated by a fellow soldier while serving in South Korea in 2006. Kenyon, who remembered herself as a gung-ho private hoping to advance through the ranks, said the incident led to her discharge, and she miscarried after flying back to the U.S. “Military health insurance doesn’t allow abortion coverage in cases of rape, and I was unable to have a safe abortion off-base, so I was stuck,” she said. “If I’d had that option, I would have had a chance to keep my career in the Army.” For decades, policies enacted by Congress have prohibited the use of federal funds for abortions — but generally these policies make
The current policy is shameful.” — Dr. Katherine Scheirman, who served as an Air Force physician for 20 years exceptions for cases of rape and incest. The policy set by Congress for the armed forces in 1981, and still in effect, does not allow the military health care plan to make this exception. It’s this discrepancy — putting servicewomen on a different plane than federal employees, federal prisoners and Medicaid recipients, for example — that fuels much of the anger among those trying to change the policy. “The current policy is shameful,” said Dr. Katherine Scheirman, who served as an Air Force physician for 20 years. “Our military women, who serve and sacrifice for their country, should not have worse health care benefits than civilians who rely on the government for their insurance coverage.” This week, Rep. Susan Davis, D-Calif., and five Democratic colleagues introduced an amendment to the National Defense Authorization Act
that would have changed the policy to allow abortion coverage in cases of rape. The Republican-controlled House Rules Committee, as it sifted through scores of proposed amendments to the act, did not allow the Davis measure to advance to a stage where it could be debated. It issued no public explanation for the decision. Davis, in a telephone interview, said the current policy was a particular burden to young, lowly paid servicewomen on duty in war zones such as Iraq and Afghanistan where abortions are not available in civilian hospitals. She cited one case of a soldier in Afghanistan who had to spend several weeks raising funds to pay for her abortion while soldier who allegedly raped her was awaiting trial. “These women are risking their lives for us — and we abandon them,” Davis said. ACLU legislative counsel Vania Leveille said the effort to change the policy would now shift to the Democraticcontrolled Senate, with Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y., offering to work on the issue. Leveille also said the Obama administration would be asked to engage more actively in trying to make the change.

Global economy growing more slowly
WASHINGTON (AP) — From the United States to Europe and even to booming China, the global economy is showing signs of strain. Most major economies are expected to keep growing. But evidence is mounting that many around the world are struggling to expand as fast as they did last year. European governments are struggling with debts and squeezed budgets. Britain’s economy scarcely grew at the start of the year. Even Europe’s strongest economy, Germany, may face a slowdown. High unemployment, depressed real estate and still-high oil prices are slowing the U.S. economy, which grew at a scant 1.8 percent annual rate from January through March. And after its earthquake and nuclear crisis, Japan has sunk back into a recession. In China, interest-rate hikes designed to reduce inflation are slowing growth. Overall, the world economy will likely grow just 3.5 percent this year, down from 4.1 percent in 2010, according
The current policy is explicit, prohibiting payment for abortions “with one single exception — where the life of the mother would be endangered if the fetus were carried to term.” Abortions in cases of rape, fetal abnormality or for mental health reasons are not covered. Debate over the abortion policy comes against a backdrop of widespread concern over the risk of sexual assault faced by the more than 400,000 women serving in the military. The Defense Department said there were 3,158 reports of sexual assault involving service members last year. A pending federal lawsuit filed on behalf of victims contends sexual assaults are nearly twice as common within the military as in civilian society, and cites data suggesting that nearly one in three women reports being sexually assaulted during their military service.

As leaders of the Group of Eight rich democracies meet in Paris, slowing global growth is on an agenda already packed with concerns about instability in the Middle East, Greece’s debt crisis and who will be the next head of the International Monetary Fund. It isn’t a priority item at the meeting, though. “The eurozone is a big mess, and the Europeans don’t want to talk about it,” said Simon Johnson, a former chief economist of the IMF. The most serious such problems exist in Greece, Spain, Portugal and Ireland, which are overwhelmed with debts run up during the financial crisis and the recession that followed.

ongratulations to the Kansas University groups and the local organizations who teamed up this month to facilitate collection of items that students moving out of KU residence halls might otherwise have tossed in the trash. KU’s Environmental Stewardship Program and the Department of Student Housing teamed up with local social service agencies that could make use of those items. Students who wanted to lighten their load could put nonperishable food and clothing in boxes provided in the lobbies of every KU residence hall.

The effort could put them collected 4,700 back in service.” pounds of clothing that went to Planet Aid, and 1,500 pounds of nonperishable food items for the local Just Food pantry. The Lawrence Humane Society took 100 pounds of towels, and the Lawrence Habitat for Humanity ReStore took about everything else, including microwaves, mini refrigerators, cinder blocks, carpet and furniture. In the rush to finish classes and get moved, students often don’t have the time and energy to seek out places to donate items they don’t want, but this year’s effort made the process quick and easy. Trash and recycling also are perennial issues in Lawrence at the end of July, when most apartment leases run out and students and other residents again are on the move. Organizing a citywide recycling effort during that time obviously is a bigger challenge than the residence hall program, but perhaps the recent success story will inspire local social service agencies or environmental groups to give it another try. It’s a shame to see usable items heading for the landfill instead of to an agency that could put them back in service. Everyone involved in the recent residence hall project should be proud of their work and energized to expand their efforts in the years to come.
Some hopeful signs in Afghanistan WASHINGTON — The “fighting season” has started in Afghanistan, with deadly attacks almost every day. But at the same time, diplomats see what one calls “hopeful signs” that a regional framework for peace talks with the Taliban may slowly be emerging. The most important development is that Germany has been mediating secret talks between the U.S. government and Tayyab Agha, a Taliban official who in the past has had close links with the group’s leader, Mohammad Omar. The German-sponsored talks were disclosed Tuesday in Der Spiegel and confirmed to me by a well-informed U.S. source. Agha is described in Der Spiegel as “Mullah Omar’s personal spokesman.” U.S. officials aren’t certain of that, and they are trying to establish whether Agha speaks for Omar and his Quetta Shura, or for a faction of it, or whether he is a lone wolf. In any event, he could be the most credible Taliban official to surface so far in outreach efforts over the past two years by U.S., European and regional governments. The German mediation has been guided over the past year by Michael Steiner, a veteran diplomat who is Germany’s special representative for Afghanistan and Pakistan. The effort was begun by his predecessor, Bernd Mutzelburg. The Germans hope their diplomatic contacts will ripen in time for a major conference on Afghanistan scheduled

for December in Bonn. A second positive trend is that India and Pakistan are speaking in similar language about their support for an Afghan-led negotiated settlement. An important signal came from Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh in a May 13 speech in Kabul. He endorsed President Hamid Karzai’s “process of national reconciliation” and said India “will respect the choices you make.” Pakistan’s Foreign Secretary Salman Bashir used similar language Monday when he backed an “Afghan-led and Afghanowned” peace process. He was echoing comments made in Kabul in April by Pakistani Prime Minister Yousaf Raza Gilani and Gen. Ashfaq Kayani, the army chief. Indeed, on paper, there’s little difference between the
Indian, Pakistani and American positions supporting a negotiation that concludes with a Taliban agreement to renounce violence, reject al-Qaida and support the Afghan constitution. Friction between India and Pakistan has been a major obstacle to an Afghan settlement in the past. So it’s interesting that the new diplomatic efforts come as “a dialogue process is on” between New Delhi and Islamabad, according to one Indian source. This dialogue has included recent meetings between the two nations’ secretaries for foreign affairs, home affairs, commerce and water resources. Indian officials caution that Pakistan must also crack down on the Islamic militants responsible for the 2008 Mumbai attack. Singh’s speech in Kabul got relatively little attention in the Western press. But diplomats noted this passage: “We hope that Afghanistan will be able to build a framework of regional cooperation that will help its nation-building efforts.” That hope is shared by Marc Grossman, the new U.S. special representative for Afghanistan and Pakistan, who has been pushing for a “diplomatic surge” on various fronts. A third positive trend is on the battlefield itself. The U.S.-led coalition entered this fighting season having cleared several major Taliban strongholds in Kandahar and Helmand provinces, providing more leverage. There’s some independent
evidence that the Taliban is feeling the pressure. Interviews done in April with 1,400 Afghan men by the independent International Council on Security and Development showed that respondents in nine of 14 districts surveyed believed the U.S.-led coalition is winning the war. In the southern battleground provinces of Kandahar and Helmand, 61 percent of those surveyed favored negotiations with the Taliban. ICOS surveyed a smaller sample after Osama bin Laden’s death May 2, and 68 percent said it was good news, according to Norine MacDonald, head of the group. The Afghanistan battle turns on a dirty war of night raids against Taliban leaders by U.S.led Special Forces and a counteroffensive of Taliban fighters assassinating Afghan officials working with the U.S. It’s hard to judge where the balance lies in this fight, but it’s a grinding war that may make both sides more ready for a diplomatic outcome. The death of bin Laden created an opening to resolve a conflict whose triggering personality is now gone. What’s encouraging is that other positive signs are pointing in the same direction, toward an Afghan peace process that has regional support. Grossman is a quieter diplomat than his predecessor, Richard Holbrooke, but he seems to be making some progress. — David Ignatius is a columnist for Washington Post Writers Group.

From the Lawrence Daily Journal-World for May 27, 1911: YEARS “Wholesale AGO arrests among the IN 1911 fishermen along the Kaw disclosed the fact that practically every clause of the new fish law was being violated at Lawrence. The raid into the fisherman’s territory was so wholly unexpected and was so sudden that none of them had time to remove their nets and seines from the water. The arrests were made upon warrants sworn out by Game Warden Dyche. … He found that practically every fisherman along the stream at this point, was catching fish illegally. Dip-nets, seines, tramel nets, hoop-nets, fish boxes and half a dozen methods of catching fish were being resorted to illegally by a gang of professional river men who ply their trade below the bridge.” — Compiled by Sarah St. John

Out of balance To the editor: The laws of nature teach us that there is a delicate balance that must be obeyed in order that all species can prosper and survive. The parasite and the host have a symbiotic relationship whereby they each depend on one another for survival. Once the population of parasites exceeds what the population of hosts can supply, both will die. The growth and decline of a city are governed by the same laws of nature. Government and taxpayers must remain in proper balance in order that they both survive. An imbalance occurs when governments take more than the taxpayers can provide. Proper balance must be restored or the governments will destroy the taxpayers and neither will survive. City Hall has breached their fiduciary duties far too long by grading their own tests using fuzzy math to justify favoring city employees and developer elites at the expense of the taxpayer. There is no greater philanthropist than a feel-good politician spending other people’s money for all the wrong reasons. Current statistics suggest that our city is in a downward spiral due to our high cost of living compared to per capital incomes that are well below the state average. Our city’s taxpayers are on life support, and we have a City Hall whose answer to everything is
higher taxes. Wrong answer. Correct answer is to cut spending and taxes. This old hippie is ready to march on the establishment and force change by launching “Operation Pull Your Heads Out.” Are there any other old hippies ready to march and relive the ’60s? J. Joe Herynk, Lawrence
Traditional day To the editor: As we mark the 150th anniversary of the Civil War. It is particularly important to pay attention this Memorial Day. While we remember all who gave “their last full measure” in the defense and service of our country, we should also remember the origin of Memorial Day. Gen. John A. Logan, commander in chief of the Grand Army of the Republic (made up of Union veterans of the Civil War) issued General Order 11 on May 5, 1868. In it he stated, “The 30th day of May, 1868, is designated for the purpose of strewing with flowers or otherwise decorating the graves of comrades who died in defense of their country during the late rebellion, and whose bodies now lie in almost every city, village, and hamlet churchyard in the land.” It is especially fitting that this year, marking the start of the 150th remembrance of the Civil War, that Memorial Day as origi-
nally intended falls on the last Monday of May, which was created to make a three-day weekend. Brian Van Schmus, Lawrence
LHS thanks To the editor: I have always taken great pride and felt such fortune to have been raised, educated and, in addition, experienced a wonderful career in Lawrence. As a Lawrence High School alumnus, it does my heart good to see the community benef it from the first class athletic venues at LHS. If you haven’t visited LHS recently, I encourage you to take a trip to Lawrence High School any evening to see the campus improvements and witness the community benefiting from the new fields and track. In this regard, I would like to thank USD 497 leadership and the board of education for their vision and the many local donors who shared a dream to complete this project with dedication and excellence. Larry A. Hatfield, Lawrence
Power strategy To the editor: A proposal to end subsidies for coal and big oil is being opposed by the fossil fuel industry that says the proposal is misinformed and discriminatory
and counterproductive in that it would undermine U.S. competitiveness and discourage future investment in renewable and alternative energy projects in the United States and therefore undercut job creation and economic growth. It seems that the best way to turn the U.S. economy and all this climate change and fouled air nastiness from fossil fuels around would be to dedicate the increased revenues that would result from ending the dirty coal and petroleum oil subsides to developing substitutes for fossilfuel power generation and petroleum-based transportation fuels with innovative repowering technologies and products that could be manufactured in the United States. This would encourage investment in more clean-distributed energy projects in the U.S. and therefore lead to more job creation and economic growth sooner, as well as increase U.S. competitiveness through exports of those same technologies that would lower the demand for oil and thus lower or help restrain the rising price of transport fuels. A multi-tech pathway for such projects that offers CHP (combined heat and power) plus fuels derived from diverse biomass and wastes is the pathway that would amount to an Apollo program to reach for the moon in repowering this nation and the world.

18-year sentence given for murder TOPEKA — A Topeka man who admitted hanging a woman who owed him money for crack cocaine is going to prison for nearly 18 years. Forty-six-year-old Ernest Arceneaux pleaded guilty last month to first-degree murder in the death of Joanne M. Ahern. The 36-year-old victim was killed in her apartment last Nov. 2 when Arceneaux strung her up to a ceiling fan, then kicked a chair out from under her. The Topeka Capital-Journal reported that Arceneaux was sentenced Wednesday to 17 years and 10 months in prison. A witness testified that Arceneaux was angry because Ahern hadn’t paid him $40 for some crack cocaine. The witness was wearing a concealed wire when she and Arceneaux talked about the killing.

Final Friday at the Arts Center There are plenty of happenings on May’s Final Friday Art Walk (for a full list, visit Lawrence.com/finalfridays), but if you’re out and about tonight, taking in both the visiting and local talent our fair city has to offer, your night’s not complete without stopping by the Lawrence Arts Center, 940 N.H. In addition to “The New Old San Antonio: Tales From Little Big Town” we featured last month, there are new exhibits from Margo Kren and Prairie Print Makers, as well as an outdoor exhibit, above, by Pat Bourchier, a visiting graffiti artist from Melbourne, Australia. But even beyond this is the Final Friday Street P’Arty held in conjunction with Art Tougeau. The p’arty features car-art projects for children, live music from Chris Hanneman, the chance to decorate cars, bicycles, skateboards or anything else with wheels on it, but most important of all ice cream. There’s something here for any age group and as a result, you shouldn’t miss it. The whole thing starts at 5 p.m. and is free to the public.

protects Shane’s left hand will be removed this morning and replaced with a soft cast, which would allow more flexibility. That, doctors tell him, would make pinch-running in the state tournament a possibility. “It makes me want to listen to what the doctor says so I can be ready to do that,” Shane said. “I’ve thought about taking this thing off. Sometimes, when it gets wet, it just slides down. But I’ve just done whatever he says so I can get back as soon as I can.” Added LHS coach Brad Stoll: “It’s worth keeping him on the roster just in case he can do that. He’s so freakin’ athletic and such a good base-runner. He does a lot of things that most kids can’t do.” The fact that it’s even possible for Shane to get back onto the field has helped Troy, a junior, deal with seeing his younger brother miss time.

The 4x800 relay is by far one of the most demanding track and field events. Each two-lap, 800meter leg takes considerable stamina, but requires an almost sprint-like pace to achieve a solid time. After running in coach Steve Heffernan’s grueling “six-fourtwo” workout, though, the Free State High runners consider the 4x800 relay a breeze. In fact, it’s the unanimous favorite among the eight Firebirds who will run it at the state track and field championships Please see TRACK, page 3B this weekend at Wichita State University’s Cessna Stadium.

Quite a fuss was made about the high number of offensive linemen the Kansas University football team signed last February. But recent developments have made adding the extra bodies look like a good move. Thursday, Bishop Miege offensive lineman and KU signee Phil Ford confirmed to the JournalWorld that he did not qualify academically and, therefore, would not join the Jayhawks this summer. “My ACT wasn’t high enough, and I was disappointed at first,” Ford told the Journal-World. “But the coaches at KU told me to look at it as more of a temporary setback. It may not be in God’s plan for me to go there right now, but I’m just gonna go to junior college, do my thing and maybe I can end up back at KU in the future.” It didn’t take long for Ford, 6foot-6, 345 pounds, to find a new landing place. Ford said he would enroll at Iowa Western Community College and report to camp in late June. “They said I’d probably be the biggest kid on the roster and that I could come in and start right away,” he said. Ford’s future at Iowa Western marks the third time in the past six months that a connection between KU and IWCC has popped up. Before signing prep QB Brock Berglund, the KU coaching staff heavily recruited Iowa Western QB Zach Stoudt, now at Mississippi. Around the same time, Bo Adams, an offensive lineman at IWCC, committed to walk on at KU but later turned elsewhere after a couple of class credits didn’t transfer. Ford was one of the most boisterous KU supporters in the Class of 2011, attending as many games and events as he could and even going as far as to recruit other prep players to come to Kansas with him. The loss of the versatile tackle leaves KU with five offensive linemen in the Class of 2011, including Dylan Admire, who graduated high school early and already is on campus. Other O-linemen expected to join the Jayhawks next week are: Travis Bodenstein, 6-5, 295; Luke Luhrsen, 6-5, 275; Damon Martin, 6-5, 265; and Bryan Peters, 6-5, 305. It remains to be seen if Ford will resurface at Kansas down the road, but, for now, that’s his goal. “That’s definitely a possibility,” Ford said. Asked if returning to KU was his desired outcome, Ford said, “Yes.”

Twins say final farewell to Killebrew MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — For 14 seasons, Harmon Killebrew was the cleanup hitter for the Minnesota Twins, the ferocious slugger who used his incredible strength to knock baseballs out of the park. At a memorial service on Thursday night for the Hall of Famer, who died last week at the age of 74 after a bout with esophageal cancer, Killebrew’s shy, quiet wife, Nita, exhibited an entirely different, and perhaps even more impressive, kind of strength. After heavy hitters like Rod Carew, Paul Molitor and Justin Morneau set the table with touching remarks, Nita took over the cleanup duties, delivering a powerful, tearjerking thank you to about 4,000 fans, 45 relatives and dozens of former teammates and current Twins at Target Field. “Thank you for loving my husband,” said Nita, who detailed her husband’s previous health problems that nearly claimed his life 20 years ago. “Thank you for healing his heart and his soul. Thank you for sharing him with me and giving so much to him so he had so much to give back to all of us. “His body is at rest at his home in Payette. His soul is at peace in that big ballpark in the sky. But his heart will always be in Minnesota here with you.” Killebrew died on May 17, just a few days after issuing an incredible public statement acknowledging that he had lost his battle with cancer and was entering hospice care. He hit 573 home runs in his career, but was remembered as much for his gentlemanly nature off of the baseball diamond on Thursday night. “Harmon had I don’t know how many home runs,” former home run king Hank Aaron said. “In his case, really, in all fairness to him, he was No. 1 really. He hit 1,000 home runs because he did so many great things off the field. That’s what counts, it’s not how you play the game, it’s how you play it afterward.” Commissioner Bud Selig, Jim Kaat and Jim “Mudcat” Grant were among the dignitaries who made the trip to pay tribute to one of the most beloved players in Twins history, with Grant singing a stirring rendition of “What A Wonderful World.” “Harmon was as tough and feared a competitor on the field as the game has ever known. ... He was the dominant slugger of the 1960s,” Selig said. “In this region of the country, Harmon Killebrew was the face of baseball and the game could not have been blessed with a better ambassador. “Yet we all know the irony of his nickname, ‘The Killer,’ because as a human being he was just the opposite.” Michael Cuddyer and Morneau both spoke of Killebrew the mentor, telling funny stories about being chastised for their sloppy autographs early in their careers. “Now write it so I can read it,” Morneau remembered Killebrew telling him during their first meeting. “After a few hundred tries, he finally gave me the OK.”
that won more games than any other, that boasted the league’s MVP in Rose and sent expectations soaring around Chicago in a way not seen since Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen were racking up championships. Rose led Chicago with 25 points but hit just 9 of 29 shots. He fouled Wade on a key four-point play and missed a tying free throw with 26.7 seconds left. “At the end, it’s all me,” Rose said. “Turnovers, missed shots, fouls. The series is over.” James had 11 rebounds and six

assists. Wade’s late surge helped negate his nine turnovers. Bosh added 20 points and 10 rebounds as the Heat pulled out a dramatic win. “We had to go through a lot of adversity,” coach Erik Spoelstra said. “That struggle that we went through in March, where we lost five straight — all of them close games, where we didn’t execute down the stretch and weren’t able to close games out — that helped us.”

SAN FRANCISCO — Buster Posey was carted through a tunnel at AT&T Park on Thursday, a makeshift cast covering his left ankle and no emotion on his face. Not exactly the exit the cornerstone of the World Series champion Giants wanted this season. A night after Florida’s Scott Cousins crashed into him at home plate, San Francisco’s star catcher was put on the disabled list because of a fractured bone in his lower left leg and three torn ligaments in his ankle, likely ending his season and putting a major dent in the Giants’ chances of repeating.

LOS ANGELES — Southern California acknowledges its football program committed NCAA violations while building a West Coast dynasty over the past decade. The Trojans simply believe last year’s nearly unprecedented punishment didn’t fit the crime. Athletic director Pat Haden wasn’t surprised to learn Thursday that the NCAA disagrees. The NCAA flatly rejected USC’s appeal to reduce sanctions imposed on its storied football program, keeping in place the harshest penalties leveled against a school in a quarter-century. USC must serve the second year of its twoyear postseason ban this fall, making the Trojans ineligible for the first Pac-12 title game or a bowl game. USC also will lose 30 scholarships over the next three years, giving them just 15 available scholarships per season — 10 below the normal yearly limit — until 2015. Haden led a chorus of exasperated resignation at Heritage Hall after the NCAA’s final ruling on its punitive sanctions for a variety of misdeeds surrounding Heisman Trophy-winning tailback Reggie Bush. BCS executive director Bill Hancock said in an email Thursday that the presidential oversight committee and conference commissioners will consider whether to strip USC of the 2004 BCS title it won by beating Oklahoma 55-19 in the Orange Bowl. He said there is no timetable set for that decision to come down. The Associated Press will not vacate the championship it awarded USC in 2004.

“It’s definitely a big blow for us,” said Troy, who has filled in for Shane at third base. “He’s a good player, and him not being out there is a big loss for us. It’s been a lot different. I definitely hurt for him a little bit, but I know that I’m going to have other opportunities to play with him.

compared to running the “sixfour-two” workout — runs of 600, 400 and 200 meters, followed immediately by a 200, 400 and 600 — in preparation for state. “It’s pretty awful,” said Robinson, who will also compete in the 800 and 1,600. “It might be one of the hardest workouts I’ve ever done.” “I think we need ‘We survived the six-four-two’ Tshirts or something,” Francis quipped. While the girls called the brutal track workout coach Heffernan’s “specialty,” Heffernan himself called it a vital part of the process to running the 4x800. “It helps the kids understand the kind of pace and effort they can give,” Heffernan said. While seniors Sloan and Newsome on the boys side said their only objective is to win the state championship, the girls — led by seniors Francis and Schaffer — were hoping to improve on last year’s second-place finish. Both teams will rely on talented freshmen, Sullivan and Skwarlo, running the leadoff leg of the relay. That’s not to say the upperclassmen are shouldering the entire load, though, as both Sullivan and Skwarlo will also compete in the 800 as individuals.

leadoff leg is often the most important, because a good time there gives the remaining three runners enough space and distance required to run their race and trust Free State’s strategy. “We can’t wait for the relay,” Sloan said. “We love it.”
Firebird excels at high jump ———
Free State senior Hoag seeded second at state meet By Ben Ward Journal-World Sports Writer
As a member of Free State High’s basketball team, Austin Hoag was merely one of a handful of Firebirds with enough hops to dunk. Out on the track, though, Hoag is on his own when it comes to the leaping ability required to excel in the high jump. Hoag — who will jump at 8 a.m. Saturday at WSU’s Cessna Stadium — is seeded second heading into the state track and f ield championships with a season-best and school-record jump of 6 feet, 5 inches. The senior heads to state one inch shy of Wichita Southeast’s Dexter Hayes mark of 6 feet, 6 inches. “I don’t think there’s much difference (from basketball),” Hoag said. “Except you’re jumping off of one foot instead of two.” After taking seventh in the high jump at state last year, Hoag set the school record at Free State’s opening track meet this season and has been topping his own mark in nearly every meet since.

Aside from owning the FSHS record, Hoag admitted feeling a bit of pride knowing that also means he has outleaped his older brother, Chase, who was also a standout in the high jump. FSHS coach Steve Heffernan said the biggest difference for Hoag — who has been competing in the high jump since he was in seventh
grade — has been his persistence and commitment to perfecting his technique. “We’ve had many kids with great vertical jumps,” Heffernan said. “(Here) it’s about who can sprint on a curve and have the courage go for the big jump at the last seconds. “That’s what separates great high jumpers from just guys who can jump.”
X Friday, May 27, 2011 met in the state title game, which LHS won, 3-2. A handful of LHS’s key contributors this year were there that day — some in the dugout and others in the stands — which Stoll was thrilled about because it fit right into his motivational tools for Round 1. The message? SM West wants revenge, Stoll says, and, because of that, the Vikings are going to bring more intensity to the field than any team the Lions have faced all season. The veteran LHS coach is confident that will be enough to keep his team sharp and focused on the biggest game of its season. Good thing, too, because, back in league play, the Lions topped SM West, 92, en route to winning the Sunflower League title. Today, that game means noth-
ing, and Stoll said he made sure to hammer that home to his guys. “They didn’t throw their guy, and we didn’t throw ours,” said Stoll of the starting pitching match-up from the first meeting. “So you never know what can happen. But I know our guys will be focused and ready to go.” Senior Alex Laughlin (4-3, 2.11 ERA, 60 strikeouts, 20 walks) will start on the mound tonight for LHS. Should the Lions advance, they’d play at 12:30 p.m. Saturday against the winner of the 2-7 match-up between Haysville-Campus (18-4) and Blue Valley West (13-9). A win there would put the Lions back in the state title game at 5:30 p.m. Saturday. A loss would drop them to the thirdplace game at 3 p.m.
BRIEFLY Four KU athletes advance to NCAAs EUGENE, ORE. — In less than ideal weather conditions, the Kansas University track and field team got off to a solid start on the first day of the NCAA Outdoor Championships West Preliminary on Thursday afternoon at Hayward Field on the University of Oregon campus. Four Jayhawk athletes punched their ticket to the NCAA Championships, which will be held June 8-11 at Drake University in Des Moines, Iowa. Despite competing in temperatures in the mid-50s and a steady rain, KU sophomore thrower Mason Finley continued his dominance as he captured the shot put title with his throw of 19.70 meters (6407.75 feet).
“It was pretty good performance,” Finley said. “I haven’t thrown 70 (meters) in a while, so it was pretty nice I did that especially with it being in the rain. I didn’t throw my last three because I got a good mark out, and I didn’t want to pull my groin or do anything dumb.” Kansas sophomore thrower Heather Bergmann also advances, finishing fifth in the javelin with her mark of 49.94 meters (163-10 feet) in the opening event of the meet. KU sophomore long jumper Andrea Geubelle’s 13th-place finish qualifies her for the NCAA meet. Her jump was 6.18 meters (20-03.50 feet). Jayhawk freshman Johann Swanepoel was the fourth Kansas athlete to make it to Des Moines as he took home a ninth-place finish in the men’s
javelin with a throw of 69.36 meters (227-06 feet). Senior pole vaulter Jordan Scott was a victim of the rainy weather conditions and did not advance after finishing in a tie for 14th place. Scott, the defending NCAA champion in the pole vault, passed on the first two heights before entering with the bar at 5.15 meters (16-10.75 feet). Scott missed on his first two attempts at the height before clearing the bar on his third attempt. After multiple rain delays in the event over the next hour, Scott was unable to clear the bar at 5.20 meters, resulting in the end of his KU career. In addition to winning an NCAA title, Scott also was a seven-time Big 12 champion in the event and earned All-America honors on four occasions.

The Associated Press
Orioles 6, Royals 5, 12 innings B A L T I M O R E — Vladimir Guerrero drove in Robert Andino with a single in the 12th inning, allowing Baltimore to beat Kansas City on Thursday for its season-high fifth straight victory. Nolan Reimold had four hits, including two homers, and four RBIs for the Orioles, who squandered a basesloaded, no-out situation in the 11th before coming through in the 12th. Andino led off the inning with a single off Louis Coleman (0-2), the sixth Kansas City pitcher. Adam Jones popped out, and Nick Markakis was intentionally walked before Guerrero hit a bouncing single up the middle to score the decisive run. The Royals took a 4-0 lead in the second, sending nine to the plate against Jeremy Guthrie. Jeff Francoeur led off with a single, went to third on Wilson Betemit’s single and scored on Mike Aviles’ grounder. After a single by Brayan Pena, Getz lined an RBI single to left, Alex Gordon reached on catcher’s interference, and Melky Cabrera hit a two-run single to center. Reimold hit an 0-1 changeup off Jeff Francis in the second for his second homer of the year. The shot ended Francis’ scoreless streak at 16 innings. A four-run third put the Orioles ahead. Andino and Jones singled, Mark Reynolds hit a two-out RBI single, and Reimold launched an 0-2 pitch into the left-field stands for a three-run home run and the first multiple-homer game of his career. Since being recalled from Triple-A on May 20, Reimold is 6-for-11 with three home runs. Consecutive two-out doubles by Getz and Alex Gordon tied the score in the fourth, and it remained that way until the game went to extra innings. Chris Getz had three hits for Royals, who dropped their fifth game in a row. Francis worked six innings, allowing five runs on nine hits. Guthrie yielded five runs — four earned — on nine hits in seven innings.

Red Sox 14, Tigers 1, 8 innings DETROIT — Jacoby Ellsbury hit a three-run homer in a five-run second inning, and a hot-hitting Boston team went on to rout Detroit in an eightinning, rain-shortened game. The Red Sox, who beat Cleveland 14-2 on Wednesday, scored at least 14 runs in backto-back games for the first time since 1998. Boston has won 11 of 13 and trails the AL East-leading New York Yankees by percentage points. Carl Crawford’s two-run triple gave the Red Sox a seven-run lead and chased Max Scherzer. Alfredo Aceves (2-0) allowed a run on five hits and struck out six over six innings. Aceves made his second start with Boston and the seventh of his career.

Athletics 4, Angels 3 A N A H E I M , C A L I F . — Brett Anderson tossed three-hit ball over eight scoreless innings, and Adam LaRoche drove in three runs to help a last-place Oakland team beat Los Angeles. The A’s split their fourgame series with the secondplace Angels, who fell to 4-7 in their past 11 games. Anderson (3-4) struck out four and walked three to beat the Angels for the first time in six career starts. The left-hander had been 0-3 in his previous f ive starts. Anderson finally got some run support from his teammates, who had supplied two runs or less in seven of his previous 10 starts this season. Grant Balfour gave up a three-run homer to Mark Trumbo with two outs in the ninth. The Angels’ Torii Hunter, who had a hit and an RBI in

White Sox 3, Blue Jays 1 T O R O N T O — Juan Pierre’s ninth-inning infield single drove in the tiebreaking run. The White Sox, who had won just two of their previous 12 games in Toronto, posted their 13th victory in the last 19 overall. Pierre went 2-for-4 with two RBIs and extended his hitting streak to 11 games. Jesse Crain (2-1) pitched one-third of an inning for the win, and Sergio Santos finished the ninth for his eighth save in nine opportunities. Marc Rzepczynski (2-1) allowed two runs, none earned, in one inning for his first loss of the season.

Phillies topple Reds, 10-4 The Associated Press
Phillies 10, Reds 4 P H I L A D E L P H I A — Cliff Lee drove in three runs and worked eight effective innings, leading Philadelphia to a win over Cincinnati. Raul Ibanez hit a three-run homer for the Phillies, who took three of four from the Reds. Both teams were playing with little rest following Wednesday’s 19-inning marathon ended at 12:19 a.m., after 6 hours, 11 minutes and 600 total pitches. Every Phillie had at least one hit on Thursday, including Chase Utley, who is 2-for14 since returning from the disabled list earlier this week.

Cubs 9, Mets 3 CHICAGO — Carlos Zambrano pitched six strong innings, was 3-for-3 at the plate and drove in a run to help Chicago. Zambrano (5-2) allowed two runs — one earned — on six hits and two walks while picking up his first win at Wrigley Field since Sept. 4. He doubled and scored a run at the plate and now has four hits in his last four at-bats to raise his average to .375 on the season. Carlos Pena stayed hot for Chicago, lacing a two-run homer in the fourth. It was Pena’s sixth of the year, all of them since May 3. Pena has reached base in 19 of his last 20 games. The Mets lost starter R.A. Dickey to a heel injury in the third when he fell trying to cover first base. New York’s bullpen allowed eight hits and seven runs after Dickey departed.

Marlins 1, Giants 0 S A N F R A N C I S C O — Anibal Sanchez threw a five-hitter for another complete game in San Francisco, leading Florida to a win over a team still stunned by the loss of Buster Posey. A day after the star catcher sustained a broken lower left leg when Scott Cousins crashed into him at the plate — likely ending Posey’s season — the Marlins finished a three-game sweep. Sanchez (4-1) struck out eight and walked two for his fifth career complete game and second this season. He pitched a one-hitter against the Giants last July 29 in his previous appearance at AT&T Park. Florida

KU BASKETBALL NOTEBOOK
Selby seeks to prove he ‘deserves’ shot ————
Former Kansas guard proves he’s healthy with 42-inch vertical leap By Gary Bedore firstname.lastname@example.org
Former Kansas University combo guard Josh Selby, who worked out for the Minnesota Timberwolves on Tuesday and Indiana Pacers on Thursday, has taken a humble, lowkey approach into a month’s worth of individual drills with NBA teams. “The biggest thing I need to show is I deserve to be here like everyone else,” Selby told nba.com after Thursday’s workout with Purdue’s JaJuan Johnson, Villanova’s Corey Fisher, Richmond’s Justin Harper, Michigan’s Darius Morris and Georgetown’s Chris Wright in Indianapolis. “People were questioning me because of what happened at Kansas. I need to show what happened at Kansas wasn’t the real me. I was going
through things, of course the injury (to foot) and suspension (nine games to start season). I’m just trying to showcase my game.” Selby, who averaged 7.9 points, 2.2 assists and 2.2 rebounds a game during his freshman season, is completely healthy now. He showed that by recording an amazing vertical leap of 42 inches at last week’s NBA combine. “At Kansas I was about 75, 80 percent. Now I’m 110 percent. It’s a big difference. I didn’t know I’d be suspended nine games. My first game was a great game,” Selby said of a 21-point outing versus USC. “After that, I didn’t know I’d have an injury. It pushed me back farther than I wanted to be. I’m just glad to be back.” ESPN.com’s Chad Ford believes Selby will be selected No. 17 overall by the New York Knicks in the June 23
Draft. Draftexpress.com has Selby as the the first pick of the second round by Miami. The Pacers have the No. 15 pick in Round One, the Timberwolves Nos. 2 and 20. “I can score. I will compete. I will play hard. No matter if I am shooting bad or shooting good, I will compete the same,” Selby said. “I am never going to lower my level of competitiveness.” He said he isn’t quite sure where he’s projected to play in the NBA. “I don’t know what they are thinking,” he said of NBA officials who grouped him with shooting guards at the NBA combine. “They ask me what I think my position is. I tell them right now I’m a combo guard and I just go from there.”
eff Morris worked out for the Houston Rockets on Tuesday. The Rockets pick at Nos. 14 and 23 of Round One, meaning they could wind up with both of the twins. “Yeah, I hope so,” Marcus Morris told myfoxhouston.com. “But I don’t see either one of us falling that late.” Interviewed before the workout, they listed their goals for the day. “Show them I’m a hard worker, versatile like everyone else knows, and I would love to be in Houston,” Marcus Morris said. “Just be able to score the basketball more. I was a defender and a rebounder at Kansas, and I’ll continue to do that in the league,” Markieff said.

Marcy Sugar and Kathy Mitchell
With sweeps over, a British chef gets a second crack at the obesity epidemic at a Los Angeles high school. Yanked for poor ratings “Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution” (7 p.m. and 8 p.m., ABC) returns with backto-back repeats tonight. Oliver, whose “Revolution” was set in West Virginia last season, moves to the City of Angels to help change the attitude and the menu at the schools in LA’s Unified School District. But the school bureaucracy shows him the door. He tries to go around the school’s board and win parents and students over by opening a kitchen in Westwood to provide healthy meals and plenty of information about healthier diets. In a second episode, he goes to greater lengths, even disguising himself as a tomato, to get his message across. Oliver’s onscreen difficulties and the failure of “Revolution” to find an audience demonstrate just how unreceptive folks can be to an “eat-your-vegetables” approach to diet and nutrition. And while Bravo viewers in search of consumer glamour have been suckers for experts with British accents (“Zoey 101,” “Pregnant in Heels”), Oliver’s message and approach has not yet found a network audience. ● Now in its final season, “Friday Night Lights” (7 p.m., NBC) continues to remind us why it’s one of the best network dramas to come along in many years. Things get hairy when coach Taylor’s (Kyle Chandler) East Dillon Lions take on his old team and crosstown rivals, the Dillon Panthers. Tensions rise when Taylor suspects that somebody from the richer and more suburban Dillon school staff has leaked ugly information to a blog dedicated to insulting the East Dillon players, kids from the wrong side of the tracks. And Taylor’s role as a mentor to his team of trouble teens is challenged when his star quarterback Vince (Michael B. Jordan) finds himself under pressure from his formerly estranged dad Ornette (Cress Williams) to hotdog it in front of college scouts. The episode does a good job of conveying Taylor’s plight and his difficulty in determining the boundaries between coach and father, team and family. And it doesn’t exactly help that his own daughter (Aimee Teegarden) finds herself in a crisis of her own. No other show has so brilliantly blended sports and soap opera. And while that hasn’t exactly resulted in a big audience, “Friday Night Lights” will be remembered (or watched on DVD or streamed on the Internet) long after it’s gone from NBC’s schedule.
Tonight’s other highlights ● A kidnapper of two young women becomes a target on “Flashpoint” (7 p.m., CBS) ● Three finalists compete on “CMT’s Next Superstar” (8 p.m., CMT). ● A wedding party becomes a crime scene on “Blue Bloods” (9 p.m., CBS). ● An ailing camel requires a New Age healer on “Swamp Brothers” (9 p.m., Discovery). ● Arthur establishes a court of justice as Morgan schemes a comeback on “Camelot” (9 p.m., Starz) ● Death Cab for Cutie explains it all on “Storytellers” (10 p.m., VH1).

cons of doing this or that. Cancer (June 21-July 22) ★★★ You would be well advised to sit down and relax in a tense situation. Your response to pressure will only add to the difficulty and unpredictability of the present situation. Tonight: Out late. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) ★★★★ You might be much more adventuresome than many of your friends. Part of this willingness comes from the possibility of a mini trip or vacation on the horizon.

Tonight: Make choices for you. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) ★★★★ You might feel that you must take a stand, but do it only for you, not others. People could be more quirky and unpredictable than usual. Tonight: Celebrate with a friend. Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) ★★★★ You can do only so much. In many ways, you are the workhorse of the zodiac. Recognize when enough is enough and there is no other path than the present one.

JACQUELINE BIGAR’S STARS For Friday, May 27: This year, you face challenges head-on. Continue to process. Today's choices will be very different in a year. Often you become overly serious with loved ones. If you are single, the person you might choose to relate to could be hard on you. You also can choose not to relate. If you are attached, the two of you need special time together as a couple. Aries is always a friend.

Dear Annie: I am in need of wedding etiquette advice. Both my f iance and I are entering the Army after we marry, although we aren't sure exactly when. We do not wish to receive gifts because neither of us has storage space, nor can we afford to rent it. When we enter the military, we will be gone for six weeks of basic training and another six months for advanced individual training. Obviously, we would find it much more practical to receive money. Is there any way to ask our guests for cash instead of
