Sunflower Girls State now in session


Budget pressure takes toll on faculty By Andy Hyland

FREE STATE SENIOR-TO-BE KERRIE LEINMILLER-RENICK, center, shares a laugh with members of her city while they decide which governmental positions each will take as they participate in Sunflower Girls State on Sunday at Kansas University’s Ellsworth Hall.

Weeklong event gives participants experience in governmental functions By Shaun Hittle

The 250 or so girls were there to form governments, vote for leaders and create laws. But the chatter in the early stages of the 73rd annual Sunflower Girls State hinted that the civic-minded teens would also be having some fun during the six-day event. “OK, we need a mischiefmaker,” said one member of the fictional city of Kaskakia, meeting on the seventh floor of Ellsworth Hall on the Kansas University campus. For pranks, of course. “I had no idea at first what this was,” said Kerrie Leinmiller-Renick, who just finished up her junior year at Free State High School. “I expect a lot of fun.”

The event invites girls from the across the state who have finished their junior year of high school to gather for a wide variety of government-related activities. It would be a chance to learn about state politics and add another line on the resume and college applications, said Ashyln Evans, also a Free State senior-to-be. Evans has been involved in a Model United Nations program through her school for years, and was encouraged by her mom, who also attended Girls State, to sign up. Evans and the other girls will vie for a wide variety of elected positions through the week. She’s considering a run for lieutenant governor.

Raquel Dominquez, a Bishop Seabury Academy student, was thinking about running for one of the supreme court justice positions. Today, she’ll be taking a bar exam of sorts to make sure she’ll qualify. It fits in line with her career goal of becoming a lawyer. Dominquez said she expects a tough race for the position, but “it’ll be a great experience either way.” Dominquez decided to attend Girls State after a recommendation from a friend who attended the program a couple years ago. “It opened a lot of doors for her,” Dominquez said. — Reporter Shaun Hittle can be reached at 832-7173.

As budget cuts become a more frequent part of life for university leaders, decisions dealing with them are landing in the laps of people who haven’t been formally trained on how to handle those “financial tsunamis,” Kansas University research has shown. And that has had an adverse effect on the leaders’ health, department morale and accomplishing the goals of higher education, according to the researchers, Rick Ginsberg, dean of KU’s School of Education, and Karen Multon, chairwoman and professor of research and psychology in education. Multon said the researchers questioned 56 deans and 45 department chairs around the country as part of their research. “The cuts created some very serious challenges in their work,” she said. Leaders found themselves making decisions about what to cut and which positions to keep open after someone leaves. While there are some books on how to be a better department chair, they mainly focus on conflict resolution and managing people, Multon said. Dealing with budgets isn’t typically covered. Leaders reported they had to do “more with less” and with larger class sizes, fewer faculty and smaller travel budgets becoming “the new normal” after years of declining resources. “You have very little training in that sort of thing,” Multon said. “I was trained as a faculty member: teaching, research, service.” The researchers found that being transparent helps in dealing with difficult budgetary situations.

Toy story delves into history of World War I By Caroline Boyer

At first glance, it might look like Bonner Springs resident Steve Allen gets to play with toys all day. But his home-based business, Timewalker Toys & Collectibles, is a very serious undertaking. For one thing, business is booming for the online retailer of one-sixth-scale figures, largely consisting of World War II military figures and

movie characters. Allen said the company has been virtually untouched by a downtrodden economy. “We’ve never really seen a period of stagnation, even through the worst of the recession,” he says. For another, Allen and his wife, Margaret, have taken on the significant task of introducing a new era to the market, producing a prototype for a World War I line of figures. Already, a copycat figure is being produced by another

Not just a G.I. Joe Allen got into the one-

sixth-scale industry a decade ago as a collector, shortly after it started to grow when a company called Dragon Models started producing fully articulated, historically accurate World War II figures. “A lot of people will look at it superficially and think back to the days of the old G.I. Joes that are 12-inch,” Allen said. “But they’ve come so far Special to the Journal-World now, that the representation STEVE AND MARGARET ALLEN, owners of of a soldier in one-sixth-scale Timewalker Toys & Collectibles, hope to have their first World War I toy available this fall.

manufacturer that caught wind of the Allens’ line, but the Allens hope it is clear their toy is of a higher quality. “They have produced a similar product; ours is distinguished in the fact that it is much more historically accurate,” Steve Allen said. “It’s not to say that their figure is bad, but it’s more of the common kind of output you get from the industry.”

Funeral services for Jesse Herman Hess, 86, Lawrence, will be at 2 p.m. Tuesday at Clinton Presbyterian Church. Burial will follow in Clinton Cemetery. Mr. Hess died Friday, June 1, 2012, at Lawrence Memorial Hospital. He was born Feb. 7, 1926, in Le Loup, Kan., the son of Jesse and Clara Hess. He graduated from Wellsville High School. Mr. Hess worked for KDOT, and retired in 1991 after 30 years of service. He previously worked at Sunflower Ordnance Works. He was a member of Clinton Presbyterian Church, and enjoyed gardening. He married Martina Pugh Hodges on Jan. 21, 1956, and together enjoyed 51 years of marriage. She died May 8, 2007. He was also preceded in death by five sisters, Marie Caruthers, Edna Mae Williams, Erma Giffin, Gladys Turner, and Ruth Lenhart. Survivors include a step son, Charles Hodges and wife Margaret, Lawrence; a step daughter, Janet Mills and husband Charles,


“The more transparent you are, the more understanding you get, the more buy-in that you have on any decisions that you do make,” Multon said. Also, leaders have to take time to take care of themselves physically and mentally, as many of the leaders reported higher blood pressure, weight gain and loss of sleep as a result of decisions they had to make. “Living through all of this and having to make the decisions you have to make, it’s really awful,” Ginsberg said. Those kinds of difficulties had an impact on universities’ ability to innovate and reform, and led to what Ginsberg called “tornadoes of misunderstanding,” among faculty members in the departments and other groups of people. In many cases, turning to other leaders, friends and spouses can help leaders work through difficult decisions. “Leaders don’t have to do it alone,” Ginsberg said. The existing literature in crisis management and what Ginsberg called “cutback management” makes one thing very apparent, Ginsberg said. “What’s crystal clear is nobody’s prepared for dealing with this,” he said. Their research has not yet been published, but it was presented at the annual conference of the American Educational Research Association.

BRIEFLY Google cameras gather more photos

Sedgwick Co. may close juvenile site

HUTCHINSON (AP) — Google Street View cars have been seen moving around Kansas this week taking photos. The Hutchinson News reported that cars in Google’s Street View fleet have 15 lenses taking 360 degrees of photos. Motion sensors track the camera’s position, a hard drive stores the data, a small computer runs the system and lasers capture 3D data to determine distances within Street View imagery. Google’s cars have been mapping Reno, Harvey, Sedgwick and Wyandotte counties recently. The cars started driving in the southern states and move north as it gets warmer. When data goes back to Google, signals from several sensors in the car, like GPS, determine the car’s exact locations. When the signal is blocked by a tall building, data from other sensors help fill in the gaps.

WICHITA (AP) — Sedgwick County officials have been considering closing a facility for juvenile offenders in order to address budget constraints. The Wichita Eagle reported that the Sedgwick County Commission has been weighing the possibility of closing the Judge Riddel Boys Ranch to help deal with the county’s $9.5 million deficit. Closing the ranch would save the county between $1 million and $2 million a year. The county’s 2012 budget was $412 million. The facility, which opened in 1961, has been considered a model program for helping prevent seriously troubled juveniles from committing more crimes. The ranch offers a temporary home for boys and young men, who live there, take classes and learn job skills. About 40 people live there, ranging in age from 14 to 20, with an average stay of about 150 days.

THIS UNDATED PHOTO PROVIDED BY THE GRASSROOTS ART CENTER shows the entrance to the Bowl Plaza, a giant toilet-shaped building in Lucas. The town has been working on its $100,000 public restroom project for the past four years, and it officially opened with much fanfare on Saturday.

SATURDAY’S POWERBALL 9 10 17 29 45 (33)

Excitement swirls around Lucas’ new public restroom LUCAS (AP) — Hundreds of people gathered in the central Kansas town of Lucas this weekend for the grand opening of the town’s quirky new public restroom, the culmination of a four-year effort to make a bathroom stop something of an experience. The rectangular men’s and women’s building at the town’s new Bowl Plaza is shaped like a toilet tank, and the oval-painted entrance resembles an upraised toilet seat lid, The Salina Journal reported Sunday. The walkway to and from the restrooms is shaped like an unfurling toilet paper roll. The daylong Bowl Plaza Grand Opening on Saturday included a toilet seat toss and Tubular Olympics with empty toilet paper rolls in Lucas, a town of about 400 residents 65 miles northwest of Salina. Residents of Lucas and visitors from as far away as Pennsylvania and Washington, D.C., gathered on the street leading from the Lucas Community Theater to Bowl Plaza. They held toilet plungers, scrub brushes and tissue rolls while the four people who won an auction to be first flushers at the facility proceeded across the street, dressed in capes and paper crowns.

Peter Robinson and his wife, Theresa, were among the spectators. The Robinsons, who moved from England four years ago and live in Kansas City, Mo., found the event oddly familiar. “I have concluded all the eccentric people moved out of England and came to Lucas,” Peter Robinson said. Plans for the Bowl Plaza took shape in 2008 when Eric Abraham, a ceramic and porcelain artist who owns a studio in Lucas, and Rosslyn Schultz, director of Lucas’ Grassroots Art Center, received an attraction development grant from the Kansas Department of Commerce to build Bowl Plaza.

Home donated to help families in transition

Kline’s lawyers seek another recusal TOPEKA — Lawyers for former Attorney General Phill Kline suggest in a court filing that one of two remaining Kansas Supreme Court justices recuse himself from hearing Kline’s disciplinary case. The ethics Kline violation allegations stem from an investigation of abortion providers that Kline began when he was attorney general from 2003-2007. The state Board for Discipline of Attorneys said Kline misled officials or allowed subordinates to mislead others. Kline has disputed the allegations. Five of the seven justices recused themselves May 18 from the Kline case. The Topeka Capital-Journal reported Sunday that Kline’s lawyers filed the “Suggestion for Recusal of Justice Dan Biles” May 30. The filing said in part that Biles and Kline clashed over education financing. Court spokesman Ron Keefover said as of Friday, Biles hadn’t recused himself.

Johnson County lake has blue-green algae OVERLAND PARK — Kansas health officials have issued an advisory about blue-green algae at a Johnson County lake. WDAF-TV reports that the Kansas Department of Health and Environment has posted advisory signs at South Lake Park in Overland Park warning people about the dangers of the algae. The department says people and pets should not drink the water at the lake. Ingesting the infected water can cause diarrhea and vomiting, and animals can die from drinking too much water affected by the blooms. Blooms of blue-green algae sickened more than a dozen people in Kansas last year and killed at least five dogs.

JAKE HOWARD OF ECKAN, LEFT, and Bob Marsh, of the Franklin County Emergency Temporary Shelter Association, give a tour of an Ottawa house, pictured at left, that was donated for the homeless in Franklin County. One family will live in the home for up to 90 days as a transition from homelessness.


a three-bedroom home on Oak Street anonymously donated. The level of homelessness in rural Franklin County surprises some, Howard said. “It looks different than an urban homelessness,” Howard said. “It’s out of sight.” Homeless shelters and nonprofits in Lawrence and across Kansas have reported a rise in families falling into homelessness. In the Ottawa school district, the number of homeless students has increased from 51 in the 2008-2009 school year to 131 this past year, according to Teresa Powers, the district’s homeless liaison. The transitional house

in Ottawa has been several years in the making, said Bob Marsh, member of the Franklin County Emergency Temporary Shelter Association, which is helping coordinate the program. Providers discussed a larger shelter in the area but lacked funding for a building. Then the home was donated a couple months ago, and it steered the group toward the transitional housing program. Howard said the home should be ready for the first family within a month, and they’d like to see the program grow, possibly with the assistance of others with a house to spare. “One goal is to inspire others to donate property,” he said. “There are a lot of vacant homes out there.” — Reporter Shaun Hittle can be reached at 832-7173.

Health leader: Info ‘more secure’ under network By Phil Cauthon KHI News Service

Laura McCrary said some people are wary of having their records available on a network because they worry the information might be shared or used inappropriately. But patient privacy would be better protected with the new system, said McCrary, chief executive of Kansas Health Information Network, or KHIN, which is part of the technical backbone of the new statewide health information network. “This is a much more secure way for records to be shared between providers than what we currently have with faxing. Faxes never arrive, faxes are picked up by the wrong person, faxes are collated incorrectly, parts of faxes are missing — those are part of the reason that medical care is not as safe as it could be,” she said.


Leaders say the event is expected to improve patient care and help cut medical costs by avoiding redundant and ineffective treatments. It’s also expected to reduce errors. The statewide health information exchange is scheduled to go live July 1, allowing medical providers registered with the network to share and search for patient records. Dr. Robert Moser, secretary of the Kansas Dep a r t m e nt Moser of Health and Environment, said the exchange would safeguard patient privacy. “We can assure patients that this information will be secure and safe and only available to those providers that need it, and at the time they need it,” he said. Patient information available on the network at first will be limited to demographics, medications, allergies, lab results and medical history, including diagnoses, procedures, surgeries and immunizations. But officials at the Kansas Health Information Exchange Inc. predict the system will grow to include more kinds of information, such as a doctor’s notes or dictation recordings. Substance-abuse data will not be available on the network unless explicitly authorized by a patient. About a third of Kansas patients receive care from a provider who is or will be connected to the exchange in the near future, officials said.

Benefits of exchange As it is more widely adopted, health information exchange, or HIE, will take the place of paper records, which are typically transferred via fax, discs, mail or by patients themselves. And quicker access to more complete patient information should translate into benefits for patients. “Right now we wait sometimes a month or more to get records,” Brull said. “That time delay certainly impacts how you provide care to that patient.” She said the current paper system relies heavily on the patient to relay information from one care provider to the next. But too often, patients don’t know exactly what was done or learned by another provider. “If you know real information, you’re a lot less likely to order another test,” Brull said. “That’s what the free exchange of information gets you — you’ve helped the patient and eliminated costs.” Less paperwork also will mean less administrative cost, she said. “I hope people look back 20 years from now

Health information networks are not immune to breaches, said Dr. Joe Davison, the Kansas Health Information Exchange b o a r d c h a i r man and a doctor with West Wichita Family Practice. “As you Davison can imagine, when records are on paper and there are breaches or lost records, they tend to be small losses. Unfortunately, what health information technology will allow is huge amounts of data loss,” Davison said. “In this country we have a pretty good record for keeping other big data systems safe, such as our financial data. But even with that we have seen some breaches. So this is one of those cost-benefit analyses that everyone

needs to make,” Davison said. “If you add up all the factors, I think you’ll find that the benefits far outweigh the negatives.” Since 2009, federal law has required that all breaches of health records affecting 500 or more patients be reported for posting on a website maintained by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. Of the 435 breaches listed on, 40 involved hacking or other unauthorized access of a network server. The largest one exposed the information of 780,000 patients of the Utah Department of Health sometime between March 10 and April 2. The rest of the breaches since 2009 affected patient information not on a network. Theft, improper disposal and other unauthorized access have led to 109 breaches of paperbased health information.

The largest one occurred Jan. 1, 2011, and affected 175,350 patients of Accendo in Arizona. The remaining 286 breaches involved some other storage media, such as desktop computers, laptops, external hard drives or other portable storage devices. The largest one of those occurred Sept. 13, 2011, when TRICARE Management Activity in Virginia lost backup tapes that included information on 4.9 million patients. Three breaches have happened in Kansas, all involving stolen laptops. On Jan. 11, the Kansas Department on Aging had information on about 7,757 patients exposed via a stolen laptop. The other breaches were in 2010 and affected 1,105 patients of Occupational Health Partners in Salina and 1,200 patients of Dr. Matthew Conrad, a Wichita plastic surgeon.


a major challenge to realizing the full benefits of digital health records. “They are just now beginning to tackle standardized interfaces at the national level,” Slaughter said. “July 1 is not an end, it’s just the beginning.”

Kansas Health Information Network, or KHIN, and the Missouri-based LACIE. Other networks may apply to join the exchange, but so far none have expressed intention do so, KHIE officials said.

Starting June 1, patients of Kansas health care providers who are connected to the new statewide network will receive privacy notices telling them that their health records may be shared electronically, under the same legal protection that currently applies to their paper-based health records. People who don’t want their records to be available on the network must mail in an “optout” form, which is available at the website or 50 years from now and say, ‘This was when health care in the United States changed. There’s way less cost and better health care,’” Brull said.

From paper to iPad The conversion from paper to electronic records will take years to be fully realized, experts say. At the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, regional health information exchange began around 2002. Only recently have all of the VA’s 153 medical facilities nationwide become fully connected on a secure network, said Jim Gleisberg, a spokesman for the VA’s Eastern Kansas Health Care System. “Now we can have a veteran from Kansas go on vacation in Florida, and if he has a problem and goes to the VA in Florida, they can pull up his health records,” Gleisberg said. “But it took a while to get where we are today. It took at least 10 years to get fully there.” Most states have at least some regional exchange of medical information. But only about six states have attempted a full statewide exchange like Kansas, according to KDHE’s Aaron Dunkel, who is the state’s liaison with the federal health information exchange agency. Jerry Slaughter, executive director of the Kansas Medical Society, said the further step of interconnecting state networks is

Can you tell me what the eligibility requirements are for the food pantry? Also wondering how many people are using it.


Jeremy Farmer, executive director of Douglas County’s program Just Food, said it serves about 8,000 people per month. It helps 5,000 at the main food pantry, 1000 E. 11th St., and an additional 3,000 through its partner agencies like Ballard Community Services. To access the Just Food pantry, you need to be a Douglas County resident and within 185 percent of the federal poverty level. That’s an annual income of $20,147 for a single person or $41,348 for a family of four. Clients will receive assistance once a month, but can access fresh bread and produce every day.

STEVE AND MARGARET ALLEN OF BONNER SPRINGS spent hundreds of hours researching to create this prototype one-sixth-scale “toy” figure of a World War I Battle of Liege German infantryman. The prototype is the first the Allens’ plan for a line of World War I figures. but when you’re not able to do all the things you would prefer to do in the summer time, this is a good thing to occupy your leisure time with,” Steve Allen said.

Uncharted territory Just as Allen began working full time on Timewalker, he and Margaret decided to see whether they could fill a void they had noticed in the industry. Both lovers of history, they had been volunteering at the National World War I Museum in Kansas City, Mo., since its 2006 opening. But the onesixth-scale industry didn’t reflect figures from The Great War. “With the centennial approaching it’s time — it’s getting closer to time to have them out,” Margaret Allen said. They started petitioning manufacturers in the industry to look at World War I as an option for a toy line. “Nobody really had an interest at the time, but we finally got in contact with a company that was willing to take a look at it and look at our proposal,” Steve Allen said. The Allens went to California a year ago to pitch a World War I product line of figures to that company, CalTek. The time since has been spent determining just how to approach the line and the first prototype: an early war imperial German infantry soldier, wearing a spiked helmet and intricate tunic. “We decided on that figure because it is kind of the iconic look of the war, at least where the German Empire is concerned,” Steve Allen said. “It has a little bit of flash to it, and we want to make a big impression with the first one.” Developing a prototype The Allens have spent months working with World War I museum experts to ensure their prototype is historically accurate, at a level of research Steve Allen says goes beyond the norm in the industry. They have gone back to the original source material, taking photographs and

measurements to make sure the manufacturers in China make the most accurate World War I figure possible. But the back-and-forth communication has been difficult. For example, they sent a photo of a helmet cover to the manufacturers, who sent back a one-sixth-scale helmet cover, including the holes from age and wear and tear shown in the photo. “That wasn’t meant to be reproduced, but they took it literally,” Steve Allen said. Altogether, they created 38 different panels with historical details and descriptions of each item on the toy. “It’s quite a laborious process to put all these things together, but it’s important because what we’re ultimately working toward is a highly realistic product line,” Steve Allen said. Doran Cart, senior curator of the World War I Museum, said he has appreciated the Allens’ use of the museum as a research facility, and that the toy line may help revive people’s interest in the history of the war. Cart said the museum gets requests for research assistance from all over the world, from documentaries to graduate students research projects, but the Allens’ project was unique. “I have to admit, the project with Steve and Margaret, that’s a first, for us to do that on that type of scale,” he said. “As far as a whole detailed uniform and equipment for a 1914 German infantry soldier, that’s a whole different kind of project.” While the competitor’s copycat doll has a specific name and will hit the market in the next few months, the Allens are simply calling theirs the Battle of Liege German Infantry soldier, and they hope it will be available in the fall. The couple will continue with more World War I figures in the future, though they say it will be hard to research some soldiers, like Belgian and Russian troops, as original items are harder to find. They think the line will cause their business to finally expand beyond the capacity of their home, as well. “It’s quite a project, and it’s been a lot of fun to put together,” Steve Allen said.

Defense: Zimmerman in police custody By Jennifer Kay Associated Press

MIAMI — George Zimmerman, the neighborhood watch volunteer charged with murder in the killing of Trayvon Martin, surrendered to police Sunday and was booked into jail after having his bail revoked two days earlier. Zimmerman Zimmerman’s legal team said in a tweet that he was in police custody. Zimmerman’s bail was revoked because the judge said he and his wife lied to the court about their finances so he could obtain a lower bond. On Sunday afternoon, about 40 minutes before the

Assad likens bloody crackdown to surgery

2:30 p.m. deadline to surrender, Zimmerman was listed as an inmate on the jail website. He was listed as being held without bail and having $500 in his jail account. Seminole County Sheriff Donald Eslinger said Zimmerman turned himself in to two sheriff’s office employees about 1:25 p.m. near the jail, and was then driven to the jail. Zimmerman arrived in a white minivan and did not respond to questions from reporters as he walked inside, handcuffed and wearing blue jeans, sneakers and a button-down shirt. “He is quiet and cooperative,” Eslinger said at a news conference after Zimmerman’s surrender. The Seminole County Sheriff’s Office said Zimmerman would be in a cell by himself, separated from the general population, be-

cause the case is so highprofile. The 67-square-foot cell is equipped with a toilet, two beds, a mattress, pillow, blanket and bed sheets. Zimmerman will not have access to a TV. Prosecutors had said Zimmerman and his wife told the judge at a bond hearing in April that they had limited money, even though he had raised about $135,000 through a website. Defense attorneys said the matter was a misunderstanding. Attorney Mark O’Mara announced earlier Sunday on his website that Zimmerman had arrived in Florida late Saturday evening ahead of his surrender. Zimmerman, who is charged with second-degree murder in the fatal shooting of the 17-year-old Martin, was ordered by a judge Friday to

return to jail. Zimmerman’s legal team said Sunday that they will ask for a new bond hearing to address those concerns, and that they hope Zimmerman’s voluntary surrender will show he is not a flight risk. Furthermore, the money Zimmerman has raised is in an independent trust and cannot be directly accessed by Zimmerman or his attorneys, according to the press release. Zimmerman has pleaded not guilty to the seconddegree murder charge. He maintains he shot Martin in self-defense under Florida’s so-called “stand your ground” law because the teen, who was unarmed, was beating him up after confronting Zimmerman about following him in a gated community outside Orlando.

BEIRUT — Syrian President Bashar Assad defended his government’s crackdown on opponents Sunday, saying a doctor performing messy emergency surgery does not have blood on his hands if he is trying to save a patient. In his first speech since January, Assad appeared unmoved by scathing international criticism of his ferocious response to the 15-month-old revolt against his rule, which has killed up to 13,000 people, according to activist groups. He also denied responsibility for last week’s Assad Houla massacre of more than 100 people, saying not even “monsters” would carry out such an ugly crime. He said terrorists have pushed his country into war. “When a surgeon in an operating room ... cuts and cleans and amputates, and the wound bleeds, do we say to him your hands are stained with blood?” Assad said in a televised speech to parliament. “Or do we thank him for saving the patient?” Assad insisted the revolt was the work of foreignbacked extremists — not reformers seeking change. Although the country has faced widespread international condemnation since Syrian troops unleashed a relentless crackdown on protesters last year, a massacre last week in the central region of Houla has brought fresh urgency to solving the crisis. The opposition and the government have exchanged accusations over the Houla killings, each blaming the other for the house-to-house killings of more than 100 people, many of them small children. U.N. investigators have said there are strong suspicions that pro-regime gunmen are responsible for at least some of the killings. Assad denied his forces had anything to do with Houla. “Not even monsters would carry out (the crimes) that we have seen, especially the Houla massacre. ... There are no Arabic or even human words to describe it,” he said in his first public comments about the mass killing. Assad did acknowledge the toll the crisis has taken on the country, suggesting all the blood that has been spilled is necessary to root out the forces working to drive him from power.

PEOPLE STAND ON A WING OF A WRECKED PASSENGER PLANE in Lagos, Nigeria, on Sunday. All 153 people on board the plane were killed. The plane crashed in a densely populated neighborhood near the airport. A spokesman for Nigeria’s national emergency management agency said there were likely more casualties on the ground, but the number was unknown.

Nigerian airplane crashes, killing all 153 onboard By Jon Gambrell Associated Press

LAGOS, NIGERIA — A commercial airliner crashed into a densely populated neighborhood in Nigeria’s largest city on Sunday, killing all 153 people on board and others on the ground in the worst air disaster in nearly two decades for the troubled nation. The cause of the Dana Air crash remained unknown Sunday night, as firefighters and police struggled to put out the flames around the wreckage of the Boeing MD83 aircraft. Authorities could not control the crowd of thousands gathered around to see the crash site, with some crawling over the plane’s broken wings and standing on a still-smoldering landing gear. Harold Demuren, the director-general of Nigeria’s Civil Aviation Authority, said all on board the flight were killed in the crash. Lagos state government said in a statement that 153 people were on the flight traveling from Nigeria’s central capital of Abuja to Lagos in the nation’s southwest.

Rescue officials feared many others were killed or injured on the ground, but no casualty figures were immediately available. Firefighters and locals were seen carrying the corpse of a man from one building, its walls still crumbling and flames shooting from its roof more than an hour after the crash. President Goodluck Jonathan later declared three days of national mourning in Africa’s most populous nation. Jonathan “prays that God Almighty will grant the families of the victims of the plane crash the courage and fortitude to bear their irreparable loss,” a statement from his office read. The aircraft appeared to have landed on its belly into the dense neighborhood that sits along the typical approach path taken by aircraft heading into Lagos’ Murtala Muhammed International Airport. The plane tore through roofs, sheared a mango tree and rammed into a woodworking studio, a printing press and at least two large apartment buildings in the neighborhood before stopping.

SRS concern New language in contracts with agencies that provide key social services in Kansas needs to be cleared up.


ome new language in contracts between service providers and the Kansas Department of Social and Rehabilitation Services is raising questions that need to be addressed — sooner rather than later. SRS officials say the new language is intended to tighten existing restrictions against contractors using state or federal funds in lobbying efforts. However, a number of agencies that contract with SRS to provide various services are so concerned about how the policy is stated that they say they will not sign the contracts until the matter is resolved. In their minds, the contract goes far beyond the usual restrictions on lobbying. The language is so vague and inclusive, they say, that it raises many questions about activities in which agencies routinely engage. The new contracts state, “No funds allowed under this agreement may be expended by the recipient of the grant to pay directly or indirectly, any person for influencing or attempting to influence an officer or employee of any agency, a member or employee of a member of the United States Congress or the Kansas Legislature.” Contractors already are barred from spending government dollars to lobby for or against a specific bill or policy, but the new language seems more far-reaching and has organizations asking questions. Does paying dues to an association that is active in the legislative process constitute “indirect” attempts to influence legislation? Are agency employees barred from legislative involvement if all or part of their salaries are paid with state money — even if their lobbying efforts are paid for with private dollars? According to some national nonprofit officials, the language is so vague and overly broad that it is unlikely to stand up in court because it infringes on providers’ constitutional rights. The agencies that contract with SRS provide a host of important services to some of the state’s most vulnerable residents. Although SRS hasn’t had a good record recently of listening and responding to the concerns of agencies with which it works, state officials need to revisit this policy and make sure that any restrictions it places on lobbying and education efforts are both constitutional and not overly burdensome to the contractors on which the state depends.

Wisconsin recall serves little purpose I’ll never grow up, never grow up, never grow up. No sir, Not I, Not me, So there! — “Peter Pan” the musical, 1954 WAUWATOSA, WIS. — This state, the first to let government employees unionize, was an incubator of progressivism and gave birth (in 1932 in Madison, the precursor of the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees) to its emblematic institution, the government employees union — government organized as a special interest to lobby itself to expand itself. But Wisconsin progressivism is in a dark Peter Pan phase; it is childish without being winsome. Wisconsin has produced populists of the left (Robert La Follette) and right (Joe McCarthy). On Tuesday, in this year’s second-most important election, voters will judge the attempt by a populism of the privileged — white-collar labor unions whose members live comfortably above the American median — to recall Republican Gov. Scott Walker. In this Milwaukee suburb, a pro-Walker phone bank is conducting mobilization, not persuasion. Is any voter undecided? For 16 months, Wisconsin, normally a paragon of Midwestern neighborliness, has been riven by furious attempts to punish Walker for keeping his campaign promise to change the state’s unsustainable fiscal trajectory driven by the perquisites of government employees. His

George Will

A January poll found that even 17 percent of Democrats think recalls are justified only by criminal behavior, not policy differences.” progressive adversaries have, however, retreated from their original pretext for attempting to overturn the election Walker won handily just 19 months ago. He defeated Mayor Tom Barrett of Milwaukee. A recall is a gubernatorial election, and the Democrats’ May primary was won by ... Barrett. In 2010, government employees unions campaigned against Walker’s “5 and 12” plan. It requires government employees to contribute 5.8 percent of their pay to their pension plans. (Most were paying less than 1 percent. Most private-sector workers have no pensions; those who do pay, on average, much more than 5.8 percent.) Walker’s reform requires government employees to pay 12.6 percent of their health care premiums (up from 6 percent but still less than the 21 percent privatesector average). Defeated in 2010, the unions now are de-

manding, as frustrated children do after losing a game, “Let’s start over!” Like children throwing a tantrum against the rules of a game going badly, in 2011 petulant Wisconsin Democratic legislators fled to Illinois to disrupt the Legislature. Walker’s reforms included restricting the issues subject to collective bargaining. This emancipated school districts from buying teachers’ health insurance from a provider entity associated with the teachers union. Barrett used Walker’s reform to save Milwaukee $19 million. In justifying a raucous resistance to, and then this recall of, Walker, the government employees unions stressed his restriction of collective bargaining rights. But in the May primary, these unions backed the candidate trounced by Barrett, who is largely ignoring the collective bargaining issue, perhaps partly because most worker protections are embedded in Wisconsin’s uniquely strong civil service law. Besides, what really motivates the unions and elected Democrats is that Walker ended the automatic deduction of union dues from government employees’ pay. The experience in Colorado, Indiana, Utah and Washington state is that when dues become voluntary, they become elusive. So, Barrett is essentially running another general election campaign, not unlike that of 2010 — except that the $3.6 billion deficit Walker inherited has disappeared and property taxes have declined. By re-posing the 2010 choice, Wisconsin progressives’ one-word plat-

form becomes: “Mulligan!” The emblem displayed at some anti-Walker centers is an outline of Wisconsin rendered as a clenched fist, with a red star on the heel of the hand. Walker’s disproportionately middle-aged adversaries know the red star symbolized murderous totalitarianism, yet they flaunt it as a progressive ornament. Why? Because it satisfies the sandbox socialists’ childish pleasure in naughtiness, as does their playground namecalling (Walker is a “Midwest Mussolini”) and infantile point-scoring: When the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel endorsed Walker, Wisconsin’s Democratic Party chair fulminated that six decades ago the Sentinel (which merged with the Journal in 1995) supported McCarthy. Also, many backward-looking baby boomers want to recapture their youthful fun of waving clenched fists in the face of privilege. Now, embarrassingly, they are privileged. A January poll found that even 17 percent of Democrats think recalls are justified only by criminal behavior, not policy differences. If, however, Walker loses, regular Wisconsin elections will henceforth confer only evanescent legitimacy. If he wins, progressives will have inadvertently demonstrated that entrenched privilege can be challenged, and they will have squandered huge sums that cannot finance progressive causes elsewhere. So, for a change, progressives will have served progress. — George Will is a columnist for Washington Post Writers Group.

Campo can see beyond numbers “Moneyball” would have us believe that any skilled researcher can predict the future success of an athlete making a big step up in competition primarily by studying his statistical past. Nonsense. It takes trained sports professionals to make projections that can’t be backed up statistically and aren’t obvious to most of us. Kansas University defensive coordinator Dave Campo’s evaluation of Arizona State’s Darren Woodson, selected in the second round of the 1992 draft by the Dallas Cowboys, illustrates one way in which figures lie. Campo was one of many who attended Arizona State’s pro day. “I’m sitting in the room watching tape, and I see this guy flashing across the field, but he’s not making any tackles,” Campo recalled. “He’s a weak-side linebacker, they’re running the ball away from him all the time. They’re not running at him. They’re running away from him. He’s running over there. Well, Arizona State had such a good team that guys were getting tackled before he had a chance. But he’s right there.” Campo heard others saying things such as, “You know that Woodson kid, I don’t know if he’ll hit anybody. He’s running all around, but I don’t ever see him doing anything. He doesn’t have any statistics.” Woodson had stats as a sophomore, before foes knew the value of running on the opposite side from which he played. “I’m watching the tape, and my eyes are lighting up,” Campo said. “And then I’m watching him on the special teams. He’s the first one down.” Jimmy Johnson, then the Cowboy’s head coach and Campo’s boss, had emphasized the need for a big strong safety because the NFC East was loaded with teams that thrived on power football. The Cowboys worked out Woodson as a defensive back. “Here’s this guy, 218 pounds and 6-2, and he runs a 4.38 (seconds),” Campo said. “So I watched him work out and went back to Jimmy and said, ‘Look, I don’t know if this kid will be a great ball hawk because he’s never been in the secondary. He’s been close to the line of scrimmage all the time.’ But I said he’s got the feet to play in the secondary.” After his rookie season, Johnson told Campo that Woodson would start at safety the next year, and Campo wasn’t so sure he was ready. Johnson wasn’t swayed, and Woodson retired as the Cowboys’ career leader in tackles. Campo stressed Johnson deserves the credit because he was the one who pulled the trigger on making Woodson a starter so soon, but the truth is, without Campo, Woodson never would have been a Cowboy. When a KU defense short on speed, size, Division I experience and hard hitters gets abused this fall, remember Campo can project talent, and that should pay dividends in time.

Buddy Wyatt how his wife was handling his crazy travel schedule. The Kansas University defensive-line coach just smiled. “I don’t know,” he said. “She’s not talking to me right now.” He was joking, of course. But during that time in early December 2011, when KU athletic director Sheahon Zenger was still looking for a head football coach, the truth was that Wyatt had little time to be a family man. He had to try to help keep some semblance of a KU recruiting class intact. Wyatt was in a different city each day, selling a program without a coach, trying to do

At the time, KU had only three assistant coaches left on the staff to recruit — Wyatt, running backs coach Reggie Mitchell and former receivers coach David Beaty — and that was at a point in the calendar when college football teams typically have seven assistant coaches out recruiting. Mitchell, KU’s recruiting coordinator at the time, came up with a plan. He split up the country, deciding it would be best for Wyatt to visit primar-

That was one week. “It’s kind of the nature of the beast,” Wyatt said. “You’ve got to go where the kids are.” Mitchell’s travels were similar. One day he started in Chicago and ended up in Atlanta before heading to Florida the next day. Making it even more difficult was the fact that the assistants couldn’t take commitments without a head coach. Not only that, the assistants Please see WYATT, page 3B

Future Kansas University point guard Conner Frankamp, who earned first-team all-state honors after averaging 32.3 points a game last season for Wichita North High, continues to emerge as a major player nationally on the spring/summer AAU scene. Frankamp,’s No. 42-ranked player, was named tri-MVP of the Pangos All-America Camp’s “Top 30 Cream of the Crop Showcase” on Sunday in Long Beach, Calif. The 6-foot-1, 160-pound senior shared the award with Stanley Johnson, 6-6, junior, Mater Dei High, Frankamp Santa Ana, Calif., who is ranked 18th in the Class of 2014, and unranked Zena Edosomwan, 6-8, senior, Harvard Westlake High, North Hollywood, Calif. “He’s a tremendous threepoint shooter who plays with savvy and great confidence. He was one of the top five guards here, if not top three,” tourney organizer Dinos Trigonis said Sunday night, referring to Frankamp. “I’d say he reminds me a little bit of (Jeff) Boschee, a little bit of (Kirk) Hinrich. He can shoot threes and is good off the bounce. He’s good at creating separation. He worked hard in the drills. A lot of teams would have interest in him (if KU hadn’t landed a commitment last July 17).” Here’s what others had to say about Frankamps’s performance at Pangos. Jason Hickman, of MaxPreps, added: “It’s tough to circulate around the gym for even a couple of minutes without hearing a fellow camper or observer mention his name.” Ryan Silver, coach of Los Angeles Pump N Run Elite, on Twitter, commented: “Kansas commit Conner Frankamp is much better than I thought. He makes everyone better and is a great kid. He was impressive.” Dave Telep, ESPN, on Twitter: “Conner Frankamp won me over as PG not just shooter.

Mazzaro blanks Athletics ————

Royals claim 2-0 victory over offensively challenged Oakland KANSAS CITY, MO. (AP) — Alex Gordon and Brayan Pena combined on a play at the plate to preserve a shutout for Vin Mazzaro and three Royals relievers. Mazzaro pitched six innings to help the Royals beat up on punchless Oakland again, 2-0 Sunday. The Athletics are hitting .209 on the season and have been shut out in three of their past four games. The Royals sent the A’s to their 10th loss in 11 games. In the fifth inning, Josh Reddick hit a foul fly ball that Gordon caught near the seats. Adam Rosales tagged up at third, as Gordon let fly.

The throw beat Rosales, who tried but failed to jar the ball loose from catcher Brayan Pena. No luck. “It was just a reaction play,” Gordon said. “I thought it was in the stands when he hit it. It kind of crossed my mind should I catch it or let it drop. It was just one of those bang-bang plays. I caught it, bobbled it and just tried to chuck it over (Rosales’) head a little bit. I put it right there. It was definitely a good time of the game for that to happen. It gave us some momentum.” Gordon, who moved from third base to the outfield

only two years ago, won a Gold Glove last year. “I thought that was a phenomenal play,” Royals manager Ned Yost said. “I thought the ball was going to be in the stands. The thing that was impressive was Alex didn’t give up on it. He caught the ball on the dead run and made a tremendous throw to the plate over the runner. That was a good hit Pena took. The runner had time to plow into him.” Charlie Riedel/AP Photo Eric Hosmer homered and Mazzaro (2-0), who pitched OAKLAND’S ADAM ROSALES (17) PLOWS for the A’s from 2009-10 into Royals catcher Brayan Pena for the before being traded to the second out of a double play during the fifth inning of the Royals’ 2-0 victory on Please see ROYALS, page 3B Sunday in Kansas City, Mo.

Johnson wins seventh at Dover DOVER, DEL. (AP) — Jimmie Johnson was the mane man at Dover. Wearing an afro clown wig — tufts of green, red, yellow and blue could be spotted from the stands — Johnson had to admit it was hard to take him seriously while he played the role of race jester. Some guys just have all the fun. That especially includes on this track. Johnson romped again at Dover International Speedway, racing his way into the track’s history books on Sunday with his seventh win on the concrete, matching the mark held by Hall of Fame drivers Richard Petty and Bobby Allison. No active driver owns the track like the five-time Sprint Cup champion. Johnson led 289 of the 400 laps and looked every bit like the driver who swept the two Cup races at Dover in 2002 and 2009. Johnson last won at Dover on Sept. 26, 2010. He also won the September 2005 race. “God, I love this place,� Johnson said as he took a victory spin.

No clear top picks in MLB draft NEW YORK (AP) — Most majorleague teams agree that there’s no Stephen Strasburg or Bryce Harper in this year’s baseball draft. There’s not even a Gerrit Cole or Danny Hultzen, last year’s first two picks, at the top of the class. So, without a clear-cut No. 1 prospect and several significant rule changes in place, teams face some intriguing decisions and an unpredictable first round in this year’s draft that starts tonight with the Houston Astros leading things off. “It’s a below-average draft as far as drafts go, and it’s certainly down from last year as far as depth and premium players in the first round,� said Sean Johnson, Minnesota’s West Coast scouting supervisor. “It’s lean in certain spots.� Allotted spending caps based on the number and placement of team’s picks, and an earlier signing deadline are among the changes clubs will navigate this year. The draft also is shorter now, pared down from 50 to 40 rounds. “I’m old school,� said Seattle scouting director Tom McNamara, whose team picks third. “I wish it was 70 rounds. You may find a guy in the 55th round. I was an undrafted free agent as a player, so maybe I would have been drafted if there were 100 rounds.� The Astros have the No. 1 pick for the first time since taking Phil Nevin in 1992 — one of five teams to pass on a young shortstop named Derek Jeter, selected sixth overall by the New York Yankees. Stanford right-hander Mark Appel, Florida catcher Mike Zunino, LSU righty Kevin Gausman and Georgia high school outfielder Byron Buxton are expected to be among the players picked early. Appel is considered the likely No. 1, which would mark the first time that the top draft picks in MLB and the NFL (Andrew Luck, Indianapolis Colts) have come from the same school. Appel has a mid-90s fastball and is 10-1 with 2.27 ERA for the Cardinal. The first and supplemental rounds are held tonight at MLB Network Studios in Secaucus, N.J., with the remaining rounds completed via conference calls among the teams over the next two days.

JIMMIE JOHNSON (48) CELEBRATES IN VICTORY LANE after winning the FedEx 400 at Dover International Speedway on Sunday in Dover, Del. Then it was off to goof around in Victory Lane. Johnson, crew chief Chad Knaus and other Hendrick Motorsports crew members wore the wacky wig seen in the talking-animal movie, “Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted.� They had good reason to clown around. Throw in the

All-Star race, and that’s a sweet four-race winning streak for NASCAR’s top organization. Johnson won at Darlington Raceway and Kasey Kahne won the Coca Cola 600. Johnson also won the non-points All-Star race during that span as the No. 48 Chevrolet is heat-

ing up as he chases a sixth Cup championship. “I’ve never been one to pay attention to stats,� Johnson said. “I just truthfully never thought I’d be the guy who’d build up any cool stats. Here I am with some pretty cool stats with legends of our sport and guys that I’ve looked up to.� Johnson won his second race of the season — and first where he celebrated with a rainbow circus wig. “I’m just proud of this hair,� Johnson said. “The hair brought some speed to the team.� Petty needed 46 races to win seven times, and Allison had 35 races. Johnson got to seven in his 21st start at the track known as the Monster Mile. “You whipped ’em today,� Knaus said over the radio. Kevin Harvick, Matt Kenseth, Dale Earnhardt Jr., and Clint Bowyer rounded out the top five. Johnson’s win came about 390 miles after a massive 13-car accident ended weeks of mostly accident-free races and took out defending Cup champion Tony Stewart. Stewart eventually returned and finished 25th.


Djokovic mounts comeback to advance in France PARIS — Novak Djokovic won even though he felt like nothing was working. A much less-known player named David Goffin lost, but he walked out of Roland Garros feeling like the luckiest guy in the world. It was a strange, gray Sunday at the French Open that didn’t always fit the script — and even included an early exit by the top-seeded woman, Victoria Azarenka. The top-seeded man, Djokovic, punctuated the weirdness, in need of his third career comeback from two sets down to post a fourth-round victory over 22nd-seeded Andreas Seppi of Italy, 4-6, 6-7 (5), 6-3, 7-5, 6-3. “Today, I played a very poor match,� Djokovic said. Goffin, in the draw as a “lucky loser� after falling in qualifying, found himself with a one-set lead against none other than his childhood favorite, Roger Federer, before falling 5-7, 7-5, 6-2, 6-4. At the end, the 21-year-old, 109th-ranked Goffin got a hug from the 16-time major champion that left him smiling. “I’ve had an extraordinary week,� he said. “I went through the quallies with a bit of luck. Then I played my best tennis. I played three great matches. The icing on the cake was to play here with Roger. “I won’t hide from you that I had photos of Roger everywhere in my room� growing up, Goffin said. Goffin’s mood was quite different from that of Djokovic, who felt like he got away with one on a sleepy, quiet and cool day in Paris. Across the way from Djokovic, at Court Suzanne Lenglen, Azarenka got off to a similarly bad start, except she never recovered — and wound up with a 6-2, 7-6 (4) loss to No. 15 Dominika Cibulkova that made her grumpy. Azarenka bashed her racket into the ground during a second-set changeover and received a warning for racket abuse. For a while, it looked like both top seeds would be out on the middle Sunday, but Djokovic refused to let the weather, his own problems or his surprisingly game opponent keep him down. Djokovic made it to his 12th straight Grand Slam quarterfinal and added this two-set comeback to a list that includes last year’s comeback against Federer in the semifinals at the U.S. Open, when he saved two match points before escaping. Federer will play the winner of a match between Tomas Berdych and Juan Martin del Potro. Djokovic will go against Stanislas Wawrinka or Jo-Wilfried Tsonga. Nobody on that half of the draw will be seeded worse than 18th — a much different picture from the women’s bracket, which is as wide-open as ever. Azarenka found company on the sideline with former French Open champion Svetlana Kuznetsova, a 6-0, 7-5 loser to 21st-seeded Sara Errani of Italy. The Williams sisters, former No. 1 Caroline Wozniacki and former champions Ana Ivanovic and Francesca Schiavone are among the others already gone with the second week just getting under way. Li Na is the only former French Open champion still in the draw.


Olympian Johnson calls it quits Shawn Johnson is calling it a career, ending her attempts at making a second Olympic team because of a lingering knee injury. The 20-year-old Olympic gold medalist and 2007 world champion announced her retirement Sunday, four days before the start of the U.S. gymnastics championships. Johnson says her left knee, injured in a January 2010 ski accident, continued to slow her down, and she worried about the long-term damage if she kept competing.

Bruins’ Thomas to sit out year BOSTON — Boston Bruins goaltender Tim Thomas says he’ll sit out next season. “At the age of 38, I believe it is time to put my time and energies into those areas and relationships that I have neglected,� Thomas said on his Facebook page Sunday. “That is why at this time I feel the most important thing I can do in my life is to reconnect with the three F’s. Friends, Family, and Faith.� A late bloomer who played in Finland before finally breaking into an NHL lineup at the age of 32, Thomas emerged as one of the league’s top goalies when he won the Vezina Trophy in 2009. He won it again along with the playoff MVP in 2011 while leading Boston to the Stanley Cup championship.

Ordonez retires after 15 years DETROIT — Magglio Ordonez made his retirement official Sunday, ending a stellar career in which the outfielder hit .309 in 15 seasons with the Detroit Tigers and Chicago White Sox. Ordonez’s homer to win Game 4 of the 2006 AL championship series against Oakland sent Detroit to the World Series and remains one of the most memorable moments in Tigers history. Ordonez also won the American League batting title in 2007, hitting .363 with 28 home runs, 54 doubles and 139 RBIs. He was bothered by ankle problems the last two seasons and said he didn’t receive any satisfactory offers to play in the majors in 2012.

Raiders take title J-W Staff Reports

SHAWNEE — After suffering a run-rule loss in their Mid-America Tournament opener, the Lawrence Raiders rebounded quite nicely. Two days after that ignominious debut, the city’s Legion baseball team won two games — including a revenge game against that first-round foe — to win the tournament title Sunday. The Raiders beat Natural Baseball, 8-3, in the semifinal to avenge that opening loss and the Kansas City Bombers, 6-3, in the title game. “All these guys were coming off the high school season, and most of them


couldn’t even be assured of their own job security, since the new coach could choose not to retain them. Mitchell remembers times when players asked what he was doing there, and he’d tell them that he was recruiting. Then they’d ask him if he had a job, and he’d tell them he did ... sort of. “It’s like selling ice to an Eskimo. You’re trying to sell them something they don’t need,” Mitchell said. “What you’re trying to do is basically go in and say, ‘Hey, listen. We want you. You have a scholarship here. We’re going to hire a good coach. When we hire a guy, give us an opportunity to come to your home.’” Wyatt said for most of the two weeks before Charlie Weis was hired, Wyatt was on auto-pilot, cramming his tall body into small jet seats while also perfecting his skills in cell-phone solitaire at airports. In the end, his relationship-building was rewarded, as KU was able to pick up commitments from four defensive linemen, including three defensive tackles. “It didn’t take a rocket scientist to see that we had to improve at that area,” Wyatt said. “That was an area of need that we had been saying we needed to address, even from a year ago.”

were coming off emotional state tournaments,” Raiders coach Brad Romme said. “I thought it would take them awhile to adjust, but after that first game, they were locked in.” Especially on the mound. Though Lawrence banged out 20 hits in the two games Sunday, the bigger story was pitching. Loaded with position players but short on arms, Romme needed his starters to last, and they delivered. Trent Johnson (1-0) threw a complete-game six hitter in the semifinal, and Corbin Francisco (10) threw a complete-game seven hitter in the championship. In five tournament

There were a few reasons for KU’s futility at that position in 2011. For one, the Jayhawks were hampered by injuries. Defensive tackle Pat Dorsey missed the first two months because of a broken foot, and he still wasn’t 100 percent when he returned. John Williams — probably the most productive player at defensive tackle — suffered a torn ACL two weeks into the season. Kevin Young played in nine games, but he did so with a torn labrum in his shoulder. He had surgery at the end of the year. “We didn’t have that explosion, that punch in the middle, that quicktwitch that you need to be productive,” Wyatt said. “You don’t just want to be there taking up space. To be productive, you’ve got to be able to get off blocks and then explode to the ball.” Wyatt believes his entire defensive line will have a different look in 2012 with the arrival of the new recruits. That includes Ty McKinney, a 6-foot-3, 297-pound defensive tackle from Trinity Valley Community College in Athens, Texas. KU basketball fans might become familiar with Ty’s brother, Adrick, who will be a senior forward for TCU next season. “(Ty) was a basketball kid growing up, but he got too big to play basketball, so he went the football

games, the Raiders had four complete-game performances. “I never had to go to the bullpen,” Romme said. “That was incredibly impressive.” The Raiders (4-1) will host Kansas City Millhouse at 6 p.m. Tuesday at the Lawrence High stadium.

route,” Wyatt said after signing day in early February. “So he’s very athletic. We’re very excited about him.” Keon Stowers, a 6-3, 273-pound defensive lineman, comes to KU from Georgia Military College in Milledgeville, Ga. “He can play a lot of different positions because he’s athletic enough,” Wyatt said. “But he’s extremely strong.” Jordan Tavai —at 6-3, 280 — transfers from El Camino C.C. in Torrance, Calif. “He’s been well coached at his junior college, because he really understands the game,” Wyatt said. “He’s very athletic. He’s going to bring us that pass rush from the interior that we haven’t had since I’ve been here.” KU also picked up a commitment from 6-3 Tyler Holmes — the only high-school defensive lineman in the class. “He’s already up to 280 pounds, and he looks like he’s a junior in college right now,” Wyatt said. “And so we’ve definitely beefed up the interior with size, and I think we’ve added athleticism as well.” If KU’s defensive line is improved in 2012, Wyatt knows he’ll most likely think back to those crazy days in December when his travel schedule had double the stops of a normal year. “It was worth it,” Wyatt said, “because I thought the class turned out to be pretty good.”

To be a part of that team was something I’ll never forget.” Of his play at Pangos, Frankamp told MaxPreps: “I just wanted to try and get better and play against the best competition. I wanted to get ready for USA Basketball, too. I figured this would be a good tournament for that. I just want to get my game up as much as I can.” !

BOSTON FORWARD PAUL PIERCE, CENTER, LOSES HIS HEADBAND as he is flanked by Miami guard Dwyane Wade, left, and forward Shane Battier on a drive to the basket during the fourth quarter. Pierce fouled out, but the Celtics managed a 93-91 victory in overtime on Sunday in Boston to even their series 2-all.

Celtics get even ————

Rondo backs up talk, 93-91 BOSTON (AP) — Rajon Rondo delivered the trash talk at halftime and the big plays in overtime. And after one final defensive stand, the Boston Celtics were two wins away from an improbable chance to play for another championship. Rondo had 15 points and 15 assists, and scored the final three points of the Celtics’ 93-91 overtime victory over the Heat on Sunday night that evened the Eastern Conference finals at two games apiece. Getting a huge break when LeBron James fouled out for the first time since moving to Miami, the Celtics recovered after blowing an 18-point lead in regulation and moved two games away from a third trip to the NBA finals in five years. Kevin Garnett added 17 points and 14 rebounds for the Celtics, while Paul Pierce scored 23 points before fouling out. Ray Allen finished with 16 points. “Stops,” Rondo said when asked what was the difference in the tight game. “I think we executed offensively, came up with some lucky plays and we got stops at the end.” James had 29 points and Dwyane Wade scored 20 after another dismal start for the Heat, who host Game 5 on Tuesday. “Not stressed the series is tied 2-2,” James said. “It’s great basketball, great competition. We wanted to get one up here and we didn’t.” In a game that started as a Celtics blowout and turned into a foul- and tension-filled fourth quarter,

followed by the second overtime in this series, the Celtics held on when Wade missed a potential winning three-pointer on the last possession. “We knew they were going to Wade. I wanted to check him,” Rondo said. “They set a great pick. ... We’re lucky we got a stop.” Mickael Pietrus drew James’ sixth foul and grabbed two huge offensive rebounds that extended consecutive possessions for the Celtics, who lost Game 4 in overtime in a second-round series against the Heat last year with a chance to tie the series. This time, they overcame their second-half stall on the offensive end by limiting the Heat to just one basket in overtime, by Udonis Haslem. “At the end you have a chance to win after 50plus minutes and losing the MVP. Hey, you’ll take that,” Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said. Rondo’s layup gave

the Celtics a 92-91 lead with 2:34 left, and neither team scored again until he made a free throw with 21 seconds to play. Wade, already finding it tough to locate any room with Chris Bosh out and then having to do it James also on the sideline, saw his potential winning attempt bounce off the rim as time expired. In what could have been the final Beantown game for the Celtics’ Big Three, Boston scored 61 points in a sensational first half that concluded with some televised trash talk from Rondo. But the Celtics managed only 12 points in the third quarter, and Wade finally got going after managing just eight points on 2-of-11 shooting in the first half. “Our execution in the first half was flawless,” Celtics coach Doc Rivers said. “It was as good as maybe we’ve had. And then we just got away from it.” With the Celtics down by two, Pierce and Rondo made consecutive layups for an 85-83 edge with 3:08 to go in regulation. But with the Celtics up three, they lost James, who was wide open with plenty of time to set himself for a three-pointer that evened it at 89 with 37.5 seconds left.

to complete the Royals’ fifth shutout of the year. Broxton got his 13th save in 15 opportunities. Hosmer homered to center field leading off the second against Milone (65). It was Hosmer’s first home run of the season off a left-handed pitcher. The Royals got another run in the fifth when Johnny Giavotella’s single scored Jarrod Dyson, who started the inning with a single and stole second. Milone gave up eight hits in seven innings and matched his career high with six strikeouts. He tossed eight scoreless innings and allowed three hits to beat the Royals 1-0 on April 9 in his A’s debut. Oakland’s Cliff Pennington went 0-for-3 with a sacrifice bunt and is hitless in his past 29 at-bats, the longest drought of his career.

Braves’ Hanson tops Nats The Associated Press

Braves 3, Nationals 2 WASHINGTON — Tommy Hanson shook off an agonizing start to outpitch Gio Gonzalez, and Atlanta beat Washington Sunday to end a six-game skid against their NL East rivals. Hanson (6-4) gave up homers to the first two batters he faced, with Steve Lombardozzi and Bryce Harper connecting on consecutive pitches. They became the first pair of rookies in modern baseball history to homer in succession leading off a game, the Nationals said in citing the Elias Sports Bureau. Atlanta

The Memorial

JACK NICKLAUS, LEFT, TALKS WITH TIGER WOODS after Woods won the Memorial at the Muirfield Village Golf Club on Sunday in Dublin, Ohio.

Woods ties Nicklaus with vintage victory The Associated Press

DUBLIN, OHIO — Tiger Woods was at his best Sunday at the Memorial. He hit nearly every shot just the way he wanted, worked the gallery into a frenzy with one last charge over the final hour and left everyone buzzing — especially Jack Nicklaus — with a shot they will talk about for years. Better yet was the timing of his 73rd win. Woods tied Nicklaus for career PGA Tour victories at the tournament that Jack built. And the 14-time major champion suddenly looks equipped to resume his chase of another Nicklaus mark that is more significant — 18 major championships. The U.S. Open starts in 11 days. With a chip-in that even Woods called one of the toughest shots he ever made, he birdied three of his last four holes to close with a 5-under 67 and turn a two-shot deficit into a two-shot victory over Rory Sabbatini and fastclosing Andres Romero. Coming off a two-putt birdie on the 15th, Woods hit 8-iron over the green at the par-3 16th and into an impossible lie. It was buried in deep rough, the pin 50 feet away along a ridge. Woods hit a full flop shot, hopeful to give himself a reasonable putt for par. Far more likely was the ball going short and down a slope away from the pin, or coming out too strong and rolling into the water. No one was thinking birdie, not even Woods, until he took two steps and delivered an uppercut when the ball fell in the right side of the cup. Nicklaus was gushing from the broadcast booth. “The most unbelievable, gutsy shot I’ve ever seen,” he said. “Under the circumstances — the circumstances being Tiger has been struggling — it was either fish or cut bait,” Nicklaus said later. “He had one place to land the ball. He’s playing a shot that if he leaves it short, he’s going to leave himself again a very difficult shot. If he hits it long, he’s going to probably lose the tournament. He lands the ball exactly where it has to land. Going in the hole was a bonus. But what a shot! “I don’t think under the circumstances I’ve ever seen a better shot.” Woods, who finished at 9-under 279, won the Memorial for the fifth time. At age 36, he is 10 years younger than Nicklaus when the Golden Bear won his 73rd tournament at the 1986 Masters. Sam Snead holds the PGA Tour record with 82 wins.

I don’t think under the circumstances I’ve ever seen a better shot.” — Jack Nicklaus on Tiger Woods’ chip-in on the 16th hole on Sunday at the Memorial It was vintage Woods at Muirfield Village, the fifth course where he has won at least five times. And it was the perfect way for him to end his worst stretch as a pro. After winning at Bay Hill in March, he tied for 40th in the Masters, missed the cut at Quail Hollow and tied for 40th at The Players Championship. Asked about the endless chatter about whether his game is back, Woods eventually sighed and said, “I’ll let you guys figure that out.” Woods won for the second time this year and moved to No. 4 in the world. This was more impressive than his five-shot win in the Arnold Palmer Invitational at Bay Hill in March, when he had a one-shot lead going into the final round on a course where he could get by with par. The Memorial required much more work, especially when he had to go after birdies on the back nine. And that’s what he did. Woods reached the par-5 15th into the wind in two shots to set up a twoputt birdie and get within one shot of Sabbatini. But just like that, it looked as if his chances were over when his 8-iron bounded through the green and into a tough lie behind the green. “I had to take a cut at it because the lie wasn’t as great,” he said. “I went for it. I pulled it off. And for it to land as soft as it did was kind of a surprise, because it was baked out and it was also running away from me. It just fell in. I didn’t think it was going to get there at one point.” Sabbatini didn’t need to see it. He was on the 15th green, scrambling for par, when Muirfield Village shook with the loudest roar of the day. “I knew something was going on up in front,” said Sabbatini, who shot 72. “I was really just trying to focus on my own game, and the only thing I could do was control what I was doing. I knew that I was going to have to put a good number up there.” The South African hit his tee shot into the right bunker on the 16th, the third-hardest hole Sunday that yielded only four birdies, and then blasted out to just inside 15 feet

Dear Annie: My husband’s sister-in-law is not only annoying. She is frustrating. We were friends once and lived together in my in-laws’ house. She has a son, and I have a daughter who is younger. The first time we fought, she began shouting at me, saying that my daughter is the favorite grandchild. She moved out and, after a while, apologized. I forgave her. We became work colleagues when I recommended her for a position. I don’t know how it started, but she began making snide comments, saying that I brag about being smart, etc., and that I was badmouthing her. One of our coworkers pointed out that she’s the one backstabbing me and not the other way around. She then told my husband that we were ganging up on her. After that, we didn’t speak for a long time.

Annie’s Mailbox

Marcy Sugar and Kathy Mitchell

She apologized again and said we should put everything behind us. I am a forgiving person, so I befriended her. Again. Then one day, I found out she was up to her old tricks, saying nasty things about me and spreading rumors to my husband’s relatives. I can’t avoid her because of family get-togethers. What should I do? — Had Enough in Tennessee Dear Had Enough: We suspect others are aware of your sister-in-law’s emotional instability,

Show pushes boundaries They’re young. They’re sexy. And they’re disabled! If you find that tasteless, then perhaps you’re not the audience for “Push Girls” (8 p.m., Sundance), a new documentary series from the makers of “Ruby” and “Little People, Big World.” ‘‘Push Girls” follows four beautiful women who require wheelchairs for mobility. One woman was paralyzed by a rare medical condition; the other three were involved in horrible car accidents. Two barely survived. They’re all attractive with good figures. One woman is a model who married a former TV star, but has since separated from him. Another is a terrific flirt who is frank about her desire and ability to have sex. Another ponders maternity, worrying more about her age (42) than her paraplegic status. A fourth “Push Girl” has had a string of fully able boyfriends and has one now who wants to get married. But she’s not sure if she’s ready to settle down. On the surface, “Push Girls” is nothing like the acclaimed documentary “Murderball” that followed men in a wheelchair rugby league. But both efforts emphasize exaggerated gender roles. The guys in “Murderball” were hyperadrenalized macho jocks. And it seems you have to be a girlie girl to be one of the “Push Girls.” What if your idea of freedom is just reading a book — without resorting to a hair salon, makeup and jewelry? There’s clearly no place for such outrageous behavior on television! ‘‘Push Girls” has a message with a capital M: that living with a disability is not an impediment to a full, interesting life. But around the time the quartet gathered for a “girls night out” and raised glasses to each other “Sex and the City” style, I gave myself permission to lunge for the remote. With its theme of “you go, girl” empowerment, the “Push Girls” can soar as high as their spirits will take them, so long as they never shed the straitjacket of reality television’s stifling cliches.

 At the risk of confusing everybody, Fox foists new seasons of “Hell’s Kitchen” (7 p.m.) and “MasterChef” (8 p.m.) upon us back to back. Over the course of two hours, several dozen contestants concoct their “signature dish.” Try to keep them straight.

Tonight’s other highlights

 The competition moves to Austin, Texas, on “America’s Got Talent” (7 p.m., NBC).

 Tony samples Malaysian cuisine in Penang on “Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations” (8 p.m., Travel).

 Almost 15 years after the series went off the air, much of the cast gathers for “A Walton Wedding” (8 p.m., GMC) in this 1995 made-for-television movie.


Actor Bruce Dern is 76. Actress-singer Michelle Phillips is 68. Actor Parker Stevenson is 60. Actor Keith David is 56. Singermusician El DeBarge is 51. Actress Julie White is 51.

which will make it easier for you to be in her presence at family gatherings. You don’t need to be chummy toward her. All that is required is that you be consistently civil and polite. Your husband will appreciate it, and you will score points with the rest of the relatives. Dear Annie: My husband’s mother recently died, and his sister is very upset with him because he listed her in the death notice as “Miss Jane Doe” instead of “Dr. Jane Doe.” (His sister has a Ph.D.) When my husband apologized, she stated that we always have been disrespectful of her title. Apparently, she is still upset that when she was in our bridal party, she was listed in the wedding program as “Miss Jane Doe.” I told her it never occurred to me that she would want to be listed any other way. After all, my brother, an attorney, didn’t have a J.D. after his


For Monday, June 4: This year you often feel as if you are combustible, but you need to remember to stay calm and easy. People, including you, are impulsive and could have short fuses. If you are single, you will be unusually popular this year. If you are attached, focus on working with your sweetie in disagreements. The Stars Show the Kind of Day You’ll Have: 5-Dynamic; 4-Positive; 3-Average; 2-So-so; 1-Difficult Aries (March 21-April 19)  Misplaced frustration or anger, when coupled with a lunar eclipse, could cause a problem to amplify. If you find that you become irritated, choose to say little and work through it within. Tonight: Listen to friends’ war stories of the day. Taurus (April 20-May 20)  You are a sign known to handle money well, and usually you do. Now, you need to be very careful with your personal funds. Tonight: Note the hectic pace around you. Gemini (May 21-June 20)  With the lunar eclipse directly impacting your sign, stay level when dealing with others. Play it cool, and you will be a lot happier. Tonight: Once more, you are in a social whirlwind. Cancer (June 21-July 22)  Stay focused, whether you are doing something difficult or very simple. As a child of the Moon, lunar eclipses can hit you very hard. Tonight: Vanish while you can. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)  Despite the eclipse, you are on a roll and have no intention of stopping. Your sense of humor emerges in situations involving confusion. Tonight: Use your creativity when making plans.

name. She was also angry that our invitation to our daughter’s christening said “Miss Jane Doe.” I was taught that for social invitations, one doesn’t use professional titles. Am I wrong? My husband feels that our apology should suffice, but Jane is still angry. What else can we do? — Frustrated Sister-in-Law Dear Frustrated: Generally, one doesn’t use professional titles for social events, but the overriding etiquette rule is not to offend. Your sister-in-law wants her title used at all times, so please use it. Her mistake was allowing this to continue without registering her resentment the first time, which didn’t permit you to correct it. Please tell her again that you are sincerely sorry, that it was completely unintentional, and that you promise to use her well-earned Ph.D. from now on.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)  Pressure builds and forces you to do something in order to let off some steam. The biggest mistake would be doing nothing and holding everything in. Tonight: Lock the door and screen your calls. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)  No one can predict when his or her popularity or insecurity will soar; however, today you will experience one or the other. You might be juggling more than you would like. Tonight: Say “yes” to the right offer. Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)  You could be so overwhelmed that you might not be sure of your decisions. You find the behavior of key people in your life to be confusing. Tonight: Balance your checkbook first. Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)  You could get hot under the collar when dealing with someone you need to answer to. You might be acting out in response to this person’s feelings. Tonight: Beam in your desires. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)  Take your time handling a personal matter. You might be picking up on something, or realize that some fact is out of sync. Tonight: Play it low-key. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)  You mean well, but no matter what you do, you seem to be out of sync. Your feelings are intense. Tonight: Only where the gang is. Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)  Somehow, no matter which way you turn, you encounter a problem. Be clear about what you want from a child or loved one. Tonight: A late night. — The astrological forecast should be read for entertainment only.

Pressure cooker worth investment


his is what I remembered about the pressure cooker: I remembered the hissing dial on top, its menacing rattle. I remember my mother warning my sisters and me not to go anywhere near it or we would make the top blow off and scald ourselves beyond recognition. Several years ago during Nancy O’Connor’s Bean Cooking Basics class at the Merc, I expressed this fear. Other class members’ mothers had scared them of the pressure cooker, too. O’Connor said that for cooking beans — and many other things, it turns out — the pressure cooker would become essential, our best friend. She reassured us that the appliance has come a long way since our childhoods. Seals are stronger. Safety mechanisms let you know when it’s safe to remove the lid. After tasting the difference from the sad canned beans I’d been eating and the meaty tasting ones she prepared that night, I conquered my fear and went right down to Weaver’s the next day to buy my own 8-quart pressure cooker. Yes, the initial investment of between $75 and $200 can be daunting, but mine has more than paid for itself. For some of the most economical, practical and the greenest cookware around, you needn’t look any farther than the pressure cooker.

Go GREEN KELLY BARTH Following are some reasons to add one to your kitchen.

They conserve energy. In 15 minutes, you can cook most things including beans, root vegetables, the hardest squash imaginable, brown rice and even meat. Less cooking time truly does add up to lower electric bills. Also, in the heat of the summer, you can have a meal ready in less than 30 minutes, and you’ll keep the heat of the cooking process inside the pot so you don’t put a strain on the air conditioner — simply

put the cooker outside to release steam. Even with a small, 8-quart cooker like mine, you can easily can small batches of the summer’s windfall of fruit and vegetables without heating up the house.

Pressure cookers save money. As you probably already know, bulk dried items like beans are far cheaper than the canned variety. Without a pressure cooker, dried beans take almost forever to cook. The pressure cooker can also make tender, delicious work of tougher but less expensive cuts of meat like brisket and stew meat.

They decrease packaging. Buying food in bulk eliminates the waste of raw materials used for cans and other packaging.

You can’t beat the taste. You’ll be eating food with far more flavor than processed foods that lose taste, texture and body during the long journey from harvest to packaging. Unless you know someone with a pressure cooker who will invite you over for a taste test, you’ll just have to trust me on this. At the bean class, O’Connor told us two pieces of cookware she wouldn’t want to live without: a cast-iron skillet and a pressure cooker. Mother knew best, after all. — Kelly Barth can be reached at

Cookie war: Two bakers compete for Girl Scout business


OLLEGE PARK, MD. (MCT) — For more than 50 years, people in eastern Missouri waited every spring for boxes of Trefoils, Samoas and Do-SiDos from local Girl Scouts. But now, when they order those cookies, they come in packages with unfamiliar names like Shortbread, Caramel deLites, and Peanut Butter Sandwiches. The reason for the change: an enduring cookie turf war between the only two companies licensed by the Girl Scouts to produce the famous cookies, Little Brownie Bakers and ABC Smart Cookie. When council cookie contracts with one company expire after three years, the other company makes a strong pitch to win the council’s business. But convincing councils to switch can be difficult, in part because local cookie

consumers would be confused by new brand names, said Julie Carson, director of sales for the Girl Scout Council of the Nation’s Capital, which covers the entire metropolitan area and counties in Northern Virginia, Maryland, and West Virginia. “Our council has been a (Little Brownie) council for 36 years, and (switching) would mean a lot in the area because the consumer would have to get used to a new vendor,” Carlson said. “I don’t know if we would go through the trauma of introducing a new cookie.” The two bakers use different names and similar but not identical recipes for each of the eight cookie varieties. While Little Brownie produces the caramel and coconut-studded Samoa, ABC’s version — Caramel deLite — uses lighter chocolate and less coconut.

To overcome the difficulty of a name change, Little Brownie, owned by Kellogg’s, and ABC, owned by Interbake Food in Richmond, Va., offer competitive pricing and customer service to sway councils. Price swayed the Girl Scouts of Eastern Missouri Inc. After 20 years with Little Brownie, they switched to ABC in 2011. But some customers weren’t happy with the change, said Patrice Miller, director of sales for the Girl Scouts of Eastern Missouri. “It was confusing for customers seeing new names, and if you become accustomed to how one company’s Thin Mint tastes, the other is going to taste different,” Miller said. “But if we pay less for the cookies, that’s more programs we could do for the girls.”

Not the average 9-to-5

After 29 years, cemetery caretaker at peace with macabre aspects of job BY CHANSI LONG


even years ago, the city of Lawrence took possession of Memorial Park Cemetery, 1517 E. 15th

St. A judge ordered the change when relatives lambasted the former owner for failing to keep the cemetery in decent shape: They complained that Memorial Park was seldom mowed, the roads were shoddy, the trees were overgrown and some graves were even left unmarked, the company having neglected to place tombstones in a timely manner. The cemetery has come a long way since, says Frank Demby, city Parks and Recreation employee and cemetery caretaker. “It was a war story,” Demby says. “It was so close to Memorial Day, and it had tall grass, trees and the roads were all jacked. That weekend the city took (Memorial Park) over, it was great. “There was not one department that didn’t have a hand in transforming the cemetery. We had street department out here, we had forestry, we had water boys, we had everybody out here. It was like you couldn’t hardly move, there were so many people. … For three days, there was dust in the air, but when that dust settled it was like boom, like somebody had just said ‘abracadabra’ and changed the cemetery. I was so happy about that.” Demby is a caretaker for Oak Hill, Memorial Park and Maple Grove cemeteries. He has worked for the city for nearly 30 years: mowing, extracting tree stumps, digging graves. Demby started as a seasonal employee in 1983, having taken the job for the summer when he was laid off. He assumed the work would be temporary, that his old employer would ask him back. Instead, the city decided to hold onto him. It was a decision Demby appreciated — he loves his job. “I like being outdoors,” he said. “I like the freedom that comes with it.” But the love for the job came reluctantly. “When I first started working here, I was scared to death of death,” Dem-

by said. “I had to deal with that. The hardest part was not what was going on in the cemetery but what was going on in my mind. Life, everything, is all mental. … You can psych yourself out real easily out here, if you allow yourself to. But in time you find out that this is one of the safest places to be, the cemetery. “Death has never harmed any living thing. It’s always living and living that’s harming each other.” In some ways, the death-centric job has benefited Demby: Years of working around death have sloughed away Demby’s fear of dying. But time has not improved everything. “The hardest part of the job for me is baby funerals,” said Demby. “No matter who — the funeral directors, the vault people, everybody — you can always tell a baby service. There’s a totally different air. That’s probably the hardest part on everybody.” And working with grieving families is always hard. When Demby talks about relatives of the dead, his voice exudes empathy, compassion and an honest concern for the bereaved. On a warm day in May, Demby cruised through Oak Hill Cemetery in a work truck. Wearing a floppy straw hat, he pointed to notable landmarks. At one point, he pointed to an old holding vault: a place where cemetery workers would hold bodies when severe weather prevented burial. The bodies would remain in the vault until the storms subsided: hours, days, even weeks. Demby gestured to an empty field tucked in the east side of Oak Hill — a potter’s field. “That field is actually full of people,” he said. “You (only) see a few stones, but that’s filled. Nobody had any money, so they just buried them.” Next to the potter’s, or pauper’s, field, is the Demby family plot. Demby’s brother was buried in Oak Hill in 2005. And someday, Demby will be buried there as well. “I love all this cemetery,” he said. “It’s peaceful. This is my favorite spot. This is where our family is. … I just like it so much.”

“When I first started working here, I was scared to death of death. I had to deal with that. The hardest part was not what was going on in the cemetery but what was going on in my mind.” — Frank Demby

More than looks to consider when getting pierced BY JENNIFER SALVA


ydney Lopez, a Lawrence High School sophomore, got her navel pierced when she was only 16. “My mom was okay with it as long as I wasn’t flaunting it and as long as I took care of it and made sure it was clean,” Lopez said. With a wide range of locations to place body jewelry, and adornments that fall in and out of style, piercings can be a source of conflict between parents and teens. Middle school and high school youths are experiencing rapid changes and challenges that lead to self-awareness and growth. Teens begin to come into their own, experimenting with self-expression, which can lead to an interest in piercings. In the state of Kansas, no individual under the age of 18 may receive any type of body piercing without written and notarized consent of a parent or guardian. Before the parent gives formal approval of their teen’s new piercing, it is important to know what to expect from your piercing technician.

Twitter both a gold mine for teen insights and a land mine of potential faux pas Dr. Wes: I’ll bet when you first heard about Twitter, you thought “Seriously? Do I care that someone is getting a Big Mac right now in Alabama?” I didn’t. But as I’ve given myself over to the Twitosphere, I’ve found that in addition to helping Middle Eastern rebels overthrow despotic regimes, Twitter offers some great teen writing. Hard to believe in such short form, but I actually find myself returning again and again to substantial work from kids across the globe. I try to retweet many of these thoughts, and I keep a list of my favorite feeds. You can catch them by following me @wescrenshawphd. Fair warning: While my retweets are pretty clean, most teenagers on Twitter speak just as they do to each other, so it’s often profane. But, if you can handle the topics and language, you’ll learn almost as much about today’s teens as you would sitting in my chair. Some of their words are silly, others beautiful, others quite ugly, and, as Miranda notes, some are downright mean. But you’ll also find profound advice passed from one teen to the next in a real spirit of social support. Around here that’s worth something. All of those words are there for the taking, as few teens keep their feed set to “private,” which brings me to this: Think before you tweet. Many users routinely post how much they hate their [insert explicative] jobs, school, parents, friends, etc. Twitter is many things, but it is NOT shouting into your pillow, where such sentiments are best shared. Instead, think

Seventeenyear-old Sandra from Canada is a poet. I’m not sure she knows that, but members of my Kansas City Writers Group voted her one. Right after sharing that she went jogging and never liked Vitamin Water, she wrote a series of responses to the hashtag #BestThingInLife. I’ve previously cut and pasted her work into little poems and blogged them. Today I’ll share her latest with our Double Take readers, edited only by deleting all but the first tag. Not everything on Twitter is this good, but when you find the posts that are, it’s like finding a treasure.

Miranda: Like any technology, Twitter has its good side and its bad side. As always, make sure to set specific guidelines for your child or teen’s use and keep communication open. Remember once you click send, it’s permanent. Even if you delete the tweet, it may be too late. Someone may have retweeted it, or copied and saved it. With those guidelines in mind, Wes is right — Twitter can be a very useful tool for teens. Our generation will find that being familiar with social networking and how to use it in a commercial and business enterprise will be necessary in the job market. Twitter can also be used to find people

Expanding your horizons is very easy with the help of Twitter. And now for the dark side. “Twitter drama” and confrontation between two people is very common. This is typically immature and should be avoided. “Twitter bullying” is committed by those too cowardly to say something faceto-face, who instead hide behind their computers to make their feelings known. The “subtweet” involves making a statement directed at one single person, personal enough that all of the person’s followers know who it’s about, which makes it even easier to be the mean kid on Twitter. Avoiding these pitfalls, as well as keeping personal information private, is essential. By making smart decisions as a teen and as a parent, you can ensure a safe, intelligent social networking experience that doesn’t haunt you down the road.

IN THIS IMAGE TAKEN IN MARCH 2012 by Jessa Decker-Smith, her 7-monthold daughter, Hazel DeckerSmith, right, wears a pacifier with a felt mustache attached to it as her brother Eli, 4, wears his own, pacifier not included. “It was so funny and so easy to make,” says DeckerSmith. “It really brings a snicker to your face.”


ere’s what passes for funny in the crafting world: putting a big, bushy mustache on nearly anything — pillows, glassware, jewelry, even knitted coffee-cup cozies and baby pacifiers. A mustached baby? That’s a giggle. The mustache motif — with handlebars or without — has been around for several years in the crafting world, and its popularity remains steady. “I remember some of the first mustaches cropping up ... in 2007,” in jewelry, recalls Emily Bidwell, merchandising specialist and In-house Style Expert for the online crafts site What began as a practical joke, she says, endured because of the mustache’s simple, strong and universally recognizable shape. Some images become popular then fizzle out — the space alien is one — but the humble mustache endures. “Over the years we’ve just seen more and more mustaches,” at Etsy, says Bidwell. “It’s ever popular.” A recent search of the online, handmade marketplace found more than 14,000 mustached crafts for sale. Among those is the black, acrylic ‘stache necklace crafted by jewelry designer Ran Milstein of Ramat-Hasharon, Israel. He sells it from his Etsy shop, Milkool. “I see the mustache piece as something silly, and wore it myself a few times when costumes were required,” Milstein says. “I know that it brings smiles to people’s faces, and that’s all that matters.” His customers include a teacher who used her laser-cut mustache necklace to quiet a rowdy classroom, and a woman who bought several for family members to wear to her father’s funeral. “He had a glorious mustache and (she) hoped these would help to lighten the mood,” Milstein says. Jessa Decker-Smith of Denver saw a mustached pacifier on Pinterest, the online “pin board” where people share favorite photos and ideas, and decided to make a few for her baby daughter, Hazel, and mustaches for her two older sons. “It was so funny and so easy to make,” says Decker-Smith. “It really brings a snicker to your face.” Decker-Smith has been to parties at which paper mustaches attached to chopsticks were handed out as silly photo props. They’ve become a popular party favor at weddings, appearing in Etsy’s wedding

décor listing. The online site also features more than 200 generic “party packs,” from wearable mustaches to cupcake toppers. Mustaches come in many shapes and sizes, but two of the more popular styles used in crafts are the handlebar, with its curly ends, and the droopy horseshoe. Their simple, strong lines are easy to cut out of paper, felt or fabric. Amy Anderson of Seattle is a crafts blogger who painted a handlebar mustache onto a small wooden stool two years ago, and still fancies that piece. “I like funny crafts or unexpected things,” she says. Lawrence Rubin, a Fort Lauderdale, Fla., psychologist and “pop culture fancier,” suggests that the mustache in crafts may represent “women’s attempt to recreate the male image in their liking.” A well-coifed mustache, he says, “might be a way to take the harsh edge off the masculinity through a more humorous depiction of a man.” The mustache also harkens to the 19th century, he says, when it represented masculine charm and confidence. Bidwell thinks that’s the secret to the mustache’s staying power. She’s seen a growing interest in 19th-century styles and values in her Brooklyn, N.Y., neighborhood. “I can only speak for Brooklyn, although I’ve seen it in a lot of places — this return to urban farming and more Victorian styles, doing things in an old-fashioned way,” says Bidwell. “People who are crafting can find so many ways to use the motif,” she adds.

BIKING ACROSS KANSAS Area residents ready for 475-mile trek BY SARA SHEPHERD


n a nice day a few years ago, as his wife headed out on an errand, David Brown made a decision on a whim: He’d just hop on his bike and meet her over at the shopping center. Easy, right? “I thought I was going to die,” Brown said. Later, he learned how far he’d ridden — less than a mile. Brown has since bicycled across Kansas and is preparing for his second attempt. He’s one of more than a dozen Lawrence residents signed up for this year’s Biking Across Kansas ride, a 475-mile trek from Colorado to Missouri starting Saturday and finishing June 16. The annual ride draws up to 800 participants of all ages and ability levels, and reasons for signing up run the gamut. Lawrence participants include less-than-avid cyclists as well as longtime veterans of the ride. For Brown, health was a factor. He isn’t a smoker and said he’s never had weight problems despite leading a “very sedentary” life. As a busy attorney, he said, there may be weeks where the only exercise he gets is climbing the stairs to the clerk’s office at court. “When that’s all you do,” he said, “you don’t notice whether you’re fit or not.” After his ride to the shopping center, Brown realized he most certainly was not. But he’s always hated exercise. Loathed it. Those endorphin rushes everyone talks about? “That never happens for me,” Brown said.

FORMER LAWRENCE MAYOR JOHN NALBANDIAN stands next to a field en route to Colby during his previous trip with Biking Across Kansas in 2010. He plans to take part in the ride again this summer. He knew he’d need a goal in order to stick to a regimen, and at the suggestion of his masseuse, Biking Across Kansas became that goal. Before the 2008 ride, which he completed with his teenage son, Brown trained for more than a year, supplementing bike rides with personal training sessions in the gym. Though his son, now a Marine stationed in California, can’t join him this year, Brown is tackling the ride again. His upcoming 60th birthday ties into his inspiration. “My brain seems to be working just fine,”

DAVID BROWN, LAWRENCE, plans to participate in Biking Across Kansas this month. Brown, an attorney with offices at 1040 Vt., says riding to work and home helps him squeeze workouts into his busy schedule. He’s doing the ride to improve his health and to celebrate his 60th birthday, also in June. Brown said. “I want the rest of my body to keep up with that.” Brown knows Biking Across Kansas was good for him, but, honestly, he found the experience exhausting and not particularly pleasant. Lawrence resident Lisa Rasor, on the other hand, finds Biking Across Kansas a fantastic vacation. Rasor, 46, a legal assistant at a law firm, has done the ride 14 times and plans to participate again this month. “For a whole week, I don’t know what’s going on in the world, and I don’t care. All you do is bike, and you

eat, and you sleep, and it’s relaxing,” she said. “I know people don’t believe that because it’s very physically taxing, but it is relaxing.” Rasor has been bicycling since 1995, when a friend talked her into joining her MS150 team. As long as you enjoy bicycling and train to where you can ride at least 50 miles at a time, you can do Biking Across Kansas, she said. Having a friend or two on the ride helps, too, she said. John Nalbandian, 68, completed his first Biking Across Kansas in 2010 with friend Ray Hummert. The Lawrence residents work together at Kansas University’s department of public administration.

Getting too arthritic for much running anymore, and I am not going to swim competitively. I can play golf and still get better, but I am looking for something more physical — requiring endurance. This is it. We will see.” It took mounds of ibuprofen, Nalbandian wrote. And he and the other riders endured rain, hail, knotted muscles and saddle-soreness no strategy could cure. But through the huffing and puffing, they saw a lot of scenery. Stately old homes in Minneapolis. Live music and a performance by the high school cheer squad in Herrington. The town of Hoxie, where Nalbandian surmised the local Chinese restaurant had never been as busy as the Sunday that Biking Across Kansas rolled through town. And Hunter, where probably 100 of the town’s 400 people volunteered to serve lunch and homemade pie to the cyclists. “In some cases, you’re going through towns that have fewer people than on the bike ride,” Nalbandian said. “And everybody is so nice.” This year, Nalbandian looks forward to finishing again and seeing new places along the way. “It was hard when we were doing it,” he said. “It’s a lot of fun when you look back on it.”

Program ‘life GPS’ to know when you’re off track


hile driving, if we make a turn that takes us in the wrong direction, our GPS reminds us with the words, “You are now off track.” After one of these events, we were musing how nice it would be if we had a GPS for our lives — maybe a software program that you input your life destination, and it lets you know when a decision you are about to make may take you off track. Of course, for many of us this could be a pretty constant annoyance. However, the idea of creating a GPS system for your life may not be a bad idea. And it doesn’t require that you have computer programming capability. Let’s see what we would need. First, we need to agree on one important concept: Life has no known destination, unless of course we view death as a destination. However, for the purpose of this discussion, we are not interested in guiding ourselves toward an end point to our life travels. Instead, we are looking for intentional pathways that lead to unknown destinations. An intentional pathway is one that we find ourselves on when we make conscious decisions based on our values and needs. Think about your own process. How many conscious decisions do you make in your life? For most of us the number is small. Most of us make decisions unconsciously, reactively rather than responsibly, and the impact on our lives is tremendous.


JENA AND ED BLOCH Ask yourself: If you made conscious decisions, would you eat how you eat? Be with whom you are with? Work where you work? Would you make decisions based on fear? Would you have regrets? Would you harbor resentments? Living unconsciously forces us to live in the past and the future; two places we cannot control and yet we let control us. We make decisions based on what happened to us yesterday and on what might happen to us tomorrow. We are slaves to our past and our future. On the other hand, when we live consciously, we are not concerned about yesterday or tomorrow. Ironically, when we are responsible to our present moment we

are actually acting responsibly toward our future. Imagine for a moment how freeing it would be to make decisions about the moment based on this moment rather than moments from past or the future. Living consciously, or what Michael Brown in his book “The Presence Process” calls “present moment awareness,” is a capacity that resides in each and every one of us; however, it is so unnurtured and suppressed in modern life that it has become a virtually lost piece of our humanness. In terms of our life’s path, we have lost our direction and no longer operate with intent. What road signs would help you stay on an intentional path? Here are some steps to take to program your life GPS:

Make a list of your intentions and what is required to meet those intentions. You will create lists under four sections: spiritual; social/relational; physical; emotional/psychological.

Under each section make a list of those things that you intend to occur. For example, in the spiritual section you might have “develop a deeper spiritual connection.” Try to limit each section to no more than four intentions. Prioritize each intention in each section.

Now make a list under each intention of those things that you need to attend to (needs) in order to realize your intentions. For example: For the intention of “develop a deeper spiritual connection” you might need to “attend to spiritual practice

at least 30 minutes per day.”

 If necessary, break down your needs into smaller action statements. For example: Under the need “attend to spiritual practice at least 30 minutes per day” you might list “read spiritual books” and/or “meditate.” For some it is helpful to have a variety of action options. These action items help build the pathways that lead you to an intentional, conscious life.

Look at your action items. Which ones will you need to schedule into your day to make sure you attend to them? Although scheduling has a future orientation, staying intentional and being conscious requires practice and indeed some integration with our modern ways.

Now the hardest part: recognizing and acknowledging consciously when “you are now off track.” Throughout the day (until you get good at this, it may be just an end-of-day activity), you will need to review your activities to ensure that you are placing your attention in the places that serve your intentions. Where you find activities that are “off track,” you will need to evaluate their usefulness in your life, eliminate or reduce their presence in your life. The consistent conscious evaluation of your actions in relation to your intentions will help you in constructing a life that is driven by conscious intent rather than unconscious reaction. — Jena and Ed Bloch can be reached at

Review: ‘Peculiars’ an unusual historical-fantasy story BY NAOMI GRANT


he Peculiars” by Maureen Doyle McQuerry is a slightly … peculiar book, for lack of a better term. Peculiars are essentially goblins, but they look very similar to humans. The government in this alternative 1800s novel is in the midst of a huge crackdown on Peculiars, just like every government worth its salt has done in the past. The government believes that Peculiars have violent tendencies and no soul, and are just an overall bad influence on society. Lena Mattacascar, our lovely protagonist, has an extra joint in her unusually long hands and feet. Her father was a Pe-

culiar, which leads Lena to believe that she is half Peculiar. When Lena turns 18, she goes to Scree, where all the people suspected of being Peculiar are sent, to find her father. On train to Scree, she meets a young man named Jimson Quiggley, who is going to work as a librarian for Mr. Beasley, an inventor, in the town of Knoster, which borders Scree. In addition to Jimson, Lena also meets some unsavory characters, such as the marshal Thomas Saltre, who wants Lena to work as a sort of double agent for him. Lena does as she’s expected for a while, but as she learns what a great person Mr. Beasley is, she starts to feel guilty. After an unfortunate turn of events, Lena, Jimson, Mr. Beasley and his house-

keeper’s daughter Merilee must escape Knoster, and the only place for fugitives from “justice” to go is Scree. By now, the reader has reached the climax, at which point things start to get very interesting. Before the climax, I guess I liked “The Peculiars” once I cajoled myself into picking up the book, but it was a little hard. By the time the characters decided they were going to Scree, I actually wanted to read, and the further along I got, the more I enjoyed this book. Lena gets herself into quite a bit of trouble in Scree because she makes some impetuous decisions. I found the ending pretty interesting — it’s not happy per se, but it is very optimistic and hints that good things happen after the book ends. My opinion on this book was very

mercurial while I was reading. I could be negative and say that the beginning wasn’t very good — the good parts aren’t until later on — or I could be optimistic and say that it gets better and better with every chapter! I’m also not much for fantasy — except for Harry Potter, of course! — so maybe I can’t write a fully impartial review. However, this book was set in the late 1800s. There aren’t tons of historical references, but I found the few that were there to be interesting. If you like both fantasy and history, “The Peculiars” is definitely the book for you — especially if you are age 12 or older. — Naomi Grant just finished her freshman year at Free State High School.

Use PLAY for safe biking BY BECKY MCCLURE


he days are getting longer, and it is the time of the year when people spend more time outside. Recreational and commuter bikers alike start to increase mileage, enjoying the fresh air filling their lungs and the sun shining on their faces. It is also when riders tend to ride too much too soon. Most cycling injuries are due to overuse, rather than trauma. It is no fun to be sidelined by an injury, especially when it can be prevented. Here are a few tips to avoid injury and make the bike ride more comfortable and enjoyable. Think about biking as a form of play. Play it safe! PLAY is where… O “P” stands for POSITIONING: Think of the bike as a fine piece of clothing. The clothing should fit perfectly so it is comfortable. This goes for the bike as well! If the bike fit is off, it makes pedaling unnatural and inefficient. You can adjust your own bike or take it to a trained professional. To find someone who can help you with fit, ask the staff at a bike shop for reference. Many experts disagree about adjustment rules, so you don’t have to be wedded to the fit. Feel free to experiment to customize your bike to the perfect fit. A good fit should not cause any knee, back, neck or shoulder pain. O “L” stands for LEG strength: The distance from your saddle to pedal will depend on your leg length. If the seat is too high, your bottom will shift side to

side and may end up with the back of your knee hurting. If your seat is too low, you will lose a lot of power, not to mention the risk of causing pain over the front of your knee. The saddle should be set so there is a slight amount of knee bend at the bottom of each pedal stroke. Stand occasionally to stretch and also develop a consistent ride schedule to decrease soreness. O “A” stands for ARM strength and core: While your legs have to deal with fatigue from producing the power to pedal, your arms and core have to stabilize the bike and provide a base for the legs to work from. Keep your arms and grip relaxed, not tense, to avoid arm fatigue and absorb road shock. Keep your elbows slightly bent. Avoid hunching your shoulders up to your ears. Occasionally you may need to loosen the upper body by placing one hand behind your back for short periods of time. If your neck gets tired, try getting a lightweight helmet and tilt your head side to side. This will also reduce arm and shoulder soreness. O“Y” stands for YOU: Ultimately only you can determine what feels most comfortable, so go outside and PLAY! — Becky McClure is a sports physical therapist at Lawrence Memorial Hospital South Therapy Services.

STYLE off the cuff DAVID HALL


Oftentimes the brands that are making the best stuff today have been doing it for decades. There are lots of great pieces out there with plenty of miles left on them.


s I got into the clothing industry, both as a consumer and on the retail and manufacturing sides, it took a serious toll on my fi-

nances. I am very interested in quality-fitting and qualitymade (particularly USA-made) clothing that is going to last a long time. There are plenty of retailers out there offering toptier pieces that are either classic or on the cutting edge of each season’s trend. As I have said before, I always suggest erring on the side of the classics, as spending more money makes more sense if you are going to wear it for a decade as opposed to a few months. This is the best way to save your money, because in the long run you are simply going to buy less. But what about the here and now? I often need a second coat as winter approaches, or a solid pair of alternate shoes to wear to work so I don’t destroy one pair in a year or two. Sometimes it is nice to be able to pick up a few nice items without having to break the bank or wait and hope for off-season sales to come around. This is why I spend a lot of my time in vintage (or secondhand) and thrift stores. Lawrence has a good amount of both kinds of stores that special-

ize in lightly worn clothing and also in donations. Among the Antique Mall, Arizona Trading Company and Wild Man Vintage, Mass. Street has three really great options for slightly-better-curated secondhand stores where oftentimes you can find a great pair of shoes or, as in my last trip to Wild Man, a great short-sleeve button-down for the summer months. These pieces will cost more at these stores than if you found them at Goodwill or The Salvation Army; however, it is nice not having to sift through piles and piles of heavily worn or altogether unwanted stuff. And even at $15, a vintage short-sleeve button down that is more or less one-of-a-kind (nowadays at least) is far more valuable than having to wait until sale season to buy something that several other people around town have already been wearing for months. The drawback to such stores, however, is that you are at the mercy of their current inventory, which often will not include anything you are looking for. There are few people who can successfully build a reasonable wardrobe from entirely secondhand and thrift store items, and I would say it is going to be the most rewarding if you use vintage and thrift store finds as supplements to an otherwise thoughtfullyput-together wardrobe.

I have put together a set of guidelines that will help keep thrifting fun and fruitful:

Always be willing to walk away empty-handed. As I said before, three out of four times you go to these shops, they won’t have what you are looking for, so don’t be tempted to pick up something just for the sake of bringing something home. That’s the quickest way to deplete your budget and fill up your closet with stuff you’ll never wear.

Know your brands. When you are shopping vintage clothing, it is best to do your research. Oftentimes the brands that are making the best stuff today have been doing it for decades. There are lots of great Gant, Polo, Levi’s, Eastland, Florsheim, etc. pieces out there with plenty of miles left on them.

Just because it is cheap doesn’t mean you should sacrifice other aspects of a piece of clothing. Even though it is cheap, a garment should still fit right and look good before you buy it. There is no sense in lowering your standards just to find something cheap. Like I said earlier, if you don’t really like it, you’ll never wear it — no matter how good of a deal you get on it.

Life mirrors ‘Hunger Games’

River City Jules


t the urging of my husband, I recently caught up with America and read Suzanne Collins’ “Hunger Games” series. Like a citizen to the reaping, I approached the first book with trepidation. My husband and kids had zipped through them without any problem, but everyone else I knew used words like “addictive” and “obsessive” and “I didn’t even notice when the kids shaved our dog” to describe the experience. Chapter One ended with Katniss and me on our way to the Capitol, she with the baker’s kind son and I with just enough clean laundry to get through the next three days. While Katniss dined on lavish meals prepared with the finest ingredients the Capitol could manifest, my family was lucky to see any food on the table at all. Katniss and I entered the arena late during my second night. We quickly formed an alliance where she climbed trees and fought to stay alive, and I climbed into bed and fought to keep from waking my husband. When sleep finally overtook me, I dreamed about hiding from the Careers in a cave with Peeta (played by George Clooney) and wishing I had paid more attention during archery at Cub Scout camp last summer. Like Katniss, I tried to move on with life after the “Hunger Games” ended. But Suzanne Collins had other plans … I brought “Catching Fire” everywhere with me. While Gale suffered watching the Quarter Quell, so did my personal hygiene suffer as I, too, became yet another helpless victim in the Capitol’s plans. Katniss and I quickly resumed our familiar positions, her dodging death with every tick of the clock and me questioning my limited set of lifepreserving skills. Could I outrun fire?

Would I recognize a force field? In her mind, Katniss found herself torn between two would-be lovers. In my dreams, Clooney and I formed an alliance with Don Cheadle and Brad Pitt to break our way out of the Belagio vault, a welcome change from being chased by Andy Garcia monkey muttations. “Catching Fire” ended with me tearing my son’s room apart looking for the next book, only to find my sister had borrowed it. I spent the next few days readying my home for one final battle before ripping the book out of Kari’s hands like the desperate tribute I had become. Everything fell apart before coming back together for both me and Katniss. While my new favorite heroine realized her whole world had been destroyed, I realized I had never made it to the county treasurer’s office to renew my license plate before the month ended. (Real.) Both of us now wanted by our governments, we had no choice but to plot in hiding and then bravely march to our respective government agencies and demand justice. (Not real; I just paid a late fee.) In the end, we both got our lives back. Katniss with the one I’d hoped she would pick, and I with the one who had insisted I read the series in the first place. — Julie Dunlap can be reached at

Fix-It Chick


Make sure the hose end is cut flush or you will likely be plagued by leaks even after the repair is completed. LINDA COTTIN

Fix a leaky hose end <YU`h\WUfYXcbYUBYikUm"

hether you grow grass, garden or just like to run through the sprinkler every now and then, chances are you will encounter a leaky garden hose end at some point in your life. A quick trip to your local hardware store can save the leaky hose and your money in one fell swoop. Step 1: If the garden hose is leaking between the outdoor spigot and the hose end, or between the sprinkler and the hose end, replacing the existing hose washer with a new rubber hose washer should solve the problem. Remove all remnants of the old washer before pressing the new washer into place. Step 2: If the hose continues to leak or if it is leaking from the underside of the hose end, replace the hose end with a new hose fitting. Use a good pair of kitchen shears or a sharp knife to cut off the offending end of the hose. Make sure the hose end is cut flush or you will likely be plagued by leaks even after the repair is completed. Step 3: Use the severed end as a guide for purchasing a replacement end. Most garden hoses have a 5/8-inch inside diameter, but some are 3/4-inch or 1/2-inch. Select the correct size and choose a style that suits your budget. Choices include

plastic or metal barb fittings secured with regular hose clamps or two-piece collars, and most recently, self-sealing push-on hose ends. Step 4: Soak the end of the cut hose in a bucket of hot soapy water to make it easier to install the barb fitting. Otherwise, use a drop of dish soap to lubricate the hose before installation. Step 5: When using a barb fitting and hose clamp combination, slip the clamp onto the hose before inserting the barb fitting. Step 6: Insert the barb fitting into the hose completely. Make sure the hose end butts up against the underside of the fitting end to assure a leak-proof repair. For newer self-sealing push-on hose ends, push the cut hose up into the fitting to complete the repair. Step 7: Install the hose clamp about 1/2 inch below the hose end or install the twopiece clamp so it is touching the underside of the fitting end. Step 8: Tighten the screws, put away your tools and enjoy a new and improved leak-free hose! â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Linda Cottin can be reached at

Leading insurer pays $109M for dog bite claims


ANGELES (AP) — Dog bites man does not get a lot of attention in the news, but it costs insurance companies hundreds of millions in claims every year. State Farm Insurance, one of the nation’s largest home insurers, paid more than $109 million on about 3,800 dog bite claims nationwide last year, spokesman Eddie Martinez said Wednesday. In 2010, there were about 3,500 claims and $90 million in payouts. The Insurance Information Institute estimated that nearly $479 million in dog OS

bite claims were paid by all insurance companies in 2011, spokeswoman Loretta Worters said. In 2010, it was $413 million. It’s no surprise that California — home to more dogs and people than any other state — led the way in 2011. Martinez says 527 claims were filed in California and victims received $20.3 million, a jump of 31 percent over 2010. State Farm is still working to determine reasons for the spike, Martinez said. About 4.7 million people are bitten by dogs each year and more than half of the

victims are children, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said. About 800,000 people seek medical attention for the bites. Less than half of those people require treatment and about 16 die, the agency said. After children ages 5 to 9 years old, the agency said that seniors represent the largest group at risk, followed by letter carriers. Nationally, about 5,600 U.S. Postal Service letter carriers were attacked by dogs each of the last two years, said Los Angeles spokesman Richard Maher.

OS ANGELES — Summer television used to mean reruns. This year it’s gone to the dogs. Several new shows star dogs and their owners in need of help. CBS has the lone network show in “Dogs in the City,” starring comic, dog trainer and businessman Justin Silver. It’s joined by documentaries on PBS and HBO and a series in the works for the Disney Channel, among others. Each Wednesday at 8 p.m., beginning May 30, Silver will try to help hound and human tackle unsettling problems like joint custody after divorce or dealing with significant others who just moved in. Is man or mutt usually to blame for problems? It’s 50-50, he said, but “a dog’s behavior is shaped by the people in its life.” Silver says he won’t be the one solving problems, even though he jokes that he speaks dog. Instead he will provide techniques and experiences so owners can fix their own problems. “It’s that old adage: Give a man a fish and you’ll fill his belly. Teach him how to fish and he’ll never starve. I am teaching you how to fish. But no one learns how to fish perfectly in one hour. It takes constant practice.” If intervention is needed, he will call on his own pit bulls, Chiquita and Pacino. “I use my dogs as much as possible because the thing that influences dogs most is other balanced dogs,” he said. A documentary airing on public television explores the rewards and redemption of shelter dogs. The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals says between 5 million and 7 million companion animals enter shelters every year and between 3 million and 4 million of them are euthanized. “Shelter Me,” a PBS documentary, is narrated by actress Katherine Heigl and is sponsored by the pet food company coowned by Ellen DeGeneres. The Disney Channel also has a new dog show in the works for the fall and while it does involve a rescue dog, that’s where reality ends. The live-action, multi-camera series called “Dog With A Blog” and revolves around a dog named Stan (who is really a 4-year-old named Kuma). In the show, he is adopted to tame a pair of feuding stepbrothers. Turns out Stan can read, write and blog.
