Another spirited debate on evolution expected By Scott Rothschild firstname.lastname@example.org
TOPEKA — A State Board of Education member who is troubled by science standards being developed that treat evolution as a core concept said Tuesday that he expected a vigorous de-
bate on the issue again. Just not yet. Kenneth Willard, a Republican from Hutchinson, earlier this month questioned proposed Next Generation Science standards. During the board’s update Tuesday on those standards,
Willard said those comments were blown out of proportion and he was hammered for being a “crackpot” or “kook.” But, he said, he also heard from many people who also are troubled by teaching evolution.
“It’s not a bunch of Kansas crazies that has brought this up,” Willard said. “It’s broader.” To his critics, Willard said, “Many are worried Kansas will be embarrassed” by another debate over evolution. He said he couldn’t imagine
why anyone would be embarrassed “by trying to get to the truth.” From 1999 to 2007, evolution was almost a constant source of contention on the 10-member board until standards were adopted that Please see BOARD, page 2A Willard

twisting balloons into animals for events during his college years, the artwork he creates is larger and more abstract than any balloon creatures requested at children’s parties. As a physics and economics major at the University of Chicago, Chyr was a member of Le Vorris & Vox Circus, the university’s student circus. He was a juggler, magician and unicyclist. He received an email asking for a balloon twister, and, although he didn’t know how, he replied yes. From then on, he began working part time as a balloon twister at parties and other events. After learning about an architect who uses science to create images in buildings based on where the sun is, Chyr realized

Willy Chyr puts plugs in his ears and covers his fingers with Band-Aids. “They keep my fingers from wearing from tying the balloons,” Chyr said. He opens a suitcase filled with bags of different-colored balloons, chooses a bag of blue and begins to fill them with air. His fingers intricately twist and tie the latex together, creating a big balloon ball. The ball isn’t the finished product, though; it is just a small part of a large aerial installation that will be on display at the Lawrence Arts Center by Thursday. Chyr is a balloon artist, and although he began his career
he, too, could combine art and science. He began creating balloon sculptures using lights to mimic bioluminescence, which is the biochemical emission of light by living organisms. “I thought, maybe I can try to merge these two, and after a while the balloon aspect of the idea took off,” Chyr said. After being featured in an article on the university’s website in spring 2009, Chyr’s art career expanded. He was commissioned to create a balloon sculpture for the Chicago’s Museum of Science and Industry’s LabFest! finale at Millennium Park that summer. He has since been sought after for exhibits, commissions and Please see ARTIST, page 2A

Doctors see increase in hand, foot and mouth disease By Karrey Britt email@example.com
Pediatric and Adolescent Medicine in Lawrence has seen more than 125 cases of hand, foot and mouth disease since May 1. Dr. Charles Loveland, a pediatrician in the clinic, said doctors were seeing slightly more cases than usual, and the season is just getting started. Outbreaks most often occur in summer and fall. Hand, foot and mouth disease
is a common viral illness that usually affects infants and children younger than 5, but it can occur in adults. It has no relationship to foot-and-mouth disease, which affects hoofed animals. Loveland said the disease is contagious and it’s difficult to prevent spread of infection because it can take three to six days for symptoms to appear. Symp-
toms can include:
Small sores in the mouth that often become ulcers. They tend to be in the back of the mouth.
Rash on palms of hands, soles of feet and on the webs between fingers and toes. The rash has flat or raised red spots sometimes with blisters. The rash also can appear on knees, elbows and buttocks. Loveland said fever and discomfort are usually gone in three or four days. It takes the mouth ulcers about one week to heal

Maybe a trash cart will be the newest look for Halloween in Lawrence. City commissioners on Tuesday took their largest step yet to create a trash system that mandates the use of city-issued carts instead of standard trash cans or bags. Commissioners unanimously agreed to seek bids to purchase more than 20,000 trash carts, and said that if all goes well, the CITY carts could be COMMISSION in place by the end of October. But commissioners still have one major issue left to answer before finalizing the program: cost. City staff members are recommending a system where trash rates stay the same for most residents and are reduced slightly for about 7,000 other households. But commissioners said they wanted to be presented with an option that would reduce rates for a larger number of customers, especially those customers who generate very little trash. “I think we want to encourage smaller amounts of trash to be put out,” said City Commissioner Mike Amyx. “But I think we really have to create an incentive to do that.” Commissioners at their weekly meeting said the cart system may allow them to create such an incentive. As proposed the cart system would offer three sizes

and the rash about 10 days. There is no vaccine or specific treatment for hand, foot and mouth disease, but there are some things that can be done to relieve symptoms, such as:
Taking over-the-counter medications, such as acetaminophen or ibuprofen, to relieve pain and fever.
Consuming a soft diet and avoiding citrus, salty or spicy foods. Please see DISEASE, page 6A

BRIEFLY Whooping cough cases on the rise The Kansas Department of Health and Environment on Tuesday reported a significant increase in whooping cough cases this year, and it currently is investigating an outbreak in Johnson County. As of Monday, 56 cases had been confirmed in Kansas, surpassing the total for all of 2011 of 52. Two cases have been confirmed in Douglas County during the past week. Whooping cough, or pertussis, is a contagious, bacterial, respiratory disease spread by coughing or sneezing in close contact with others. Symptoms include runny nose or congestion, sneezing, cough and fever. KDHE urges everyone, including adults, to get vaccinated because it is the best protection against the illness. The vaccine is available at the Lawrence-Douglas County Health Department’s clinic, 200 Maine. If you have any questions about vaccination or if you or your child is experiencing pertussis symptoms, contact your physician or the local health department at 8430721 and ask for a communicable disease nurse.
Obama chooses LHS grad for court

Lawrence’s drinking supply still safe, city officials say
President Barack Obama has nominated 1985 Lawrence High School graduate Sri Srinivasan to serve on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit. Srinivasan is currently the principal deputy solicitor general of the United States and has argued many cases in both private practice and for the government before the U.S. Supreme C o u r t and U.S. Courts of Appeals.

holding steady. The city hopes the taste and odor issues soon will become less noticeable, but said it was difficult to predict future levels because they fluctuate with the weather. Klamm said the city is working to remove the taste and odor by adding more carbon to the city’s water treatment process. “But it is one of those things where at a certain point, the carbon just doesn’t do it anymore,” Klamm said. Klamm, however, said the city doesn’t have alternative treatment options, such as an ozone process, because of cost constraints.

Laboratory tests have confirmed that a byproduct of dead algae is producing the odd tastes and odors in the city’s water supply. Jeanette Klamm, a spokeswoman for the city’s Utilities Department, said test results found elevated geosmin levels in the raw water coming out of Clinton Lake. Geosmin, a compound produced when algae die, can cause an earthy and musty taste and odor to drinking water. But city officials said the geosmin poses no health risks to people or pets who consume the water. Klamm said the geosmin levels currently are

A 33-year-old employee of El Potro Mexican Cafe, 2351 W. 31st St., was ticketed for reckless driving after he crashed his truck into the restaurant Tuesday afternoon. Sgt. Trent McKinley, a Lawrence police spokesman, said no one was injured but the building sustained damage. An employee said the restaurant remained open. Police determined Marcos Guevara Hernandez, of Lawrence, was traveling at a high rate of speed through the parking lot about 2 p.m. when he lost control on a patch of sand and debris and crashed into the west side of the building. An off-duty police officer was in a booth at the restaurant during the crash. McKinley said Hernandez told officers he was arriving for work when he lost control of the vehicle. He also said he had consumed a small amount of alcohol prior to the crash, but police were not able to determine he had consumed more than the legal limit to drive, McKinley said. Police also cited Hernandez for not having a valid driver’s license, and he has a notice to appear in municipal court July 11.

KU television station to be available throughout state By Andy Hyland firstname.lastname@example.org
A Kansas University television station is now available to AT&T UVerse subscribers in the Kansas City area, and plans call for KUJH-TV to expand to other U-verse customers across the state in the coming months. KUJH-TV is operated by the KU School of Journalism and Mass Communications. The station airs several student programs in addition to other university videos, Dole Institute programs and the university’s commencement ceremonies. Knology cable subscribers in Lawrence can find it on channel 31. Terry Bryant, the station’s general manager, said though much of the content on the station is produced by students, they do not make pro-
gramming decisions for the station. Planning to expand the station’s reach through the AT&T service started early last semester. “We’re really excited about it,” Bryant said. On U-verse in the Kansas City area (which includes Lawrence), subscribers can find the station on channel 99. When U-verse viewers tune to KANSAS station, UNIVERSITY that they get a menu allowing them to select from several public access and educational programs. KUJH was added to the list in Kansas City last week, Bryant said. Steve Lambert, manager of installation and maintenance for KU Information Services, said he helped install and upgrade KU’s
infrastructure to help the university transmit the signal to AT&T. As a result, the channel will now be available in high definition for oncampus cable subscribers, he said. Using several existing pieces of equipment, the cost of the necessary upgrades was about $4,000 or so, Lambert said. Lambert said current plans call for U-verse subscribers in the Topeka and Wichita markets to receive the channel in the coming months. Combined with the Kansas City market, those areas cover much of the state, Bryant said. “Families can watch when the students are doing the news,” Lambert said. “It’s kind of fun.” — Higher education reporter Andy Hyland can be reached at 832-6388.

Ex-public works director sentenced to 14 months
WICHITA (AP) — The former public works director for a south-central Kansas county has been sentenced to 14 months in prison for thefts that a federal judge said violated the public trust. Steven E. Collier, 49, appeared crestfallen Tuesday as U.S. District Judge Eric Melgren not only rejected his plea for leniency, but imposed a longer sentence than the one-year imprisonment the government had recommended. He was also ordered to pay more than $116,000 in restitution and serve three years of probation after his release. “He was in a position of trust — not just to a business, but to the citizens at large of Barber County,” Melgren said Melgren also noted that he was not obligated to follow the government recommendation. For the court to give probation would be like saying “the punishment for theft is to give it back,” the judge said. The defense lost its argument that the thefts were an abhorrent occurrence in an otherwise law-abiding life. The judge also rejected defense claims that head injury in a traffic accident years ago was responsible for his mental problems that caused him to steal. And Melgren gave little,
This is an offense in which a public employee — who was a department head — deceived his employers, deceived the public.” — Assistant U.S. Attorney Allan Metzger if any, weight to Colliers’ testimony at sentencing that he stole equipment from Barber County to pay for a so-called toxic affair and with that relationship over, he needs to remain free to provide for his disabled wife and repay taxpayers. “This is an offense in which a public employee — who was a department head — deceived his employers, deceived the public,” Assistant U.S. Attorney Allan Metzger argued in court. Metzger told the judge that the sentence of probation that Collier sought would provide no deterrence for another director of a government department not to steal — someone who might be tempted to risk probation for $116,000. Collier, who is now working as a pipeline operator for Enogex in Oklahoma City, pleaded guilty in March to two counts of theft from a Barber County program receiving fed-

a hit, since Ottawa police say they submitted the evidence to the Kansas Bureau of Investigation in 2002. According to court records, Corey’s court-appointed attorney, John Boyd, has been attempting to obtain gasoline card records from the trucking company — RAKAB Transportation Inc., based in Waterloo, Iowa — that Corey worked for in 2000. Such records could possibly show Corey was not in the Ottawa area when the crime occurred, but the defense was not able to produce such records at a preliminary hearing in November. Boyd, Franklin County Attorney Stephen Hunting and Ottawa police have declined further comment on the case, citing the pending trial. Corey’s charges include aggravated kidnapping, aggravated sexual battery and criminal threat.

He urged the judge to make Collier pay back the amount he stole from the county. “Mr. Collier is a con artist — he used people,” Harbaugh said, adding the defendant was now trying to con the court.

McKinley said the suspects drove toward an officer, who later got into his patrol car to pursue the car. A Douglas County Sheriff’s officer later spotted the vehicle along East 23rd Street and attempted to stop it. A short pursuit was later called off.

Homeless shelter proposes ‘challenge grant’ Disease
CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1A
City leaders listen to public input about budget at hearing By Chad Lawhorn firstname.lastname@example.org
Leaders of the Lawrence Community Shelter are seeking a $45,000 increase in city funding for 2013, but they told city commissioners Tuesday they’re willing to match the city’s contributions dollar for dollar. Officials with the homeless shelter proposed that the city participate in a “challenge grant” with the shelter. The program would involve the shelter starting a new fundraising campaign later this year. The city would agree to match private donations dollar for dollar, up to a maximum of $45,000. Shelter leaders

of carts for households. A 65-gallon cart would be the standard size, a 90-gallon cart would be issued for larger producers, and a 35-gallon cart would be available for generators of small amounts of trash. But under the current proposal, households that sign up for the 35-gallon cart will pay the same price as someone who has the 65-gallon cart. Several residents told commissioners on Tuesday such an arrangement wasn’t fair. “A reduced rate for reduced trash would be a useful slogan for the city to adopt,” said Bill Mitchell, a Lawrence resident who estimated his household sets out only about 5 gallons of trash per week. Commissioners said they wanted to see a financial analysis of how the city could issue a discount for residents who
made the request as part of a public hearing where commisCITY sioners solicited COMMISSION input on the 2013 budget. Commissioners took no action on the request but said they would consider it as part of their budget process, which will conclude in August. A preliminary draft of the 2013 budget has the shelter receiving $55,000 in city funding. The $45,000 challenge grant would be in addition to the $55,000 allocation. Several other residents use the smaller cart. Staff members said they would produce the analysis within the next two weeks, but also expressed concern about offering an immediate discount for the 35-gallon cart. Tammy Bennett, assistant director of public works, told commissioners a discount may cause many people to choose the 35-gallon cart when the amount of trash they generate is more suitable for a 65- or 90-gallon cart. The result could be, she said, large numbers of trash bags left beside the new carts. The city is trying to eliminate people using cans or bags for their trash because it makes it difficult for the city to use automated trucks, which the city says will reduce worker compensation costs and make the system more efficient. Under the staff-recommended plan, about 7,000 households that currently rent a cart from the city would see their monthly trash rate decline. Here’s how:
also presented budget requests to commissioners. They included:
Supporters of the Lawrence Children’s Choir asked for $14,000 in funding to make up for a loss in state funding. The organization is losing about $14,000 it previously received from the Kansas Arts Commission.
Alan Cowles of the West Lawrence Neighborhood Association asked for funding to add traffic-calming devices to Harvard Road west of Wakarusa Drive. Traffic-calming devices for the neighborhood already have been approved by city commissioners, but funds have never been allocated for the project.
A reduced rate for reduced trash would be a useful slogan for the city to adopt.” — Bill Mitchell, a Lawrence resident
Households that currently rent a 65-gallon cart from the city pay a $1.50-per-month fee for the cart. Under the proposed system that monthly fee would be eliminated.
Households that currently rent a 90-gallon cart from the city pay a $2-per-month fee for the cart. Under the proposed system that fee would be reduced to $1 per month. Commissioners did hear from one member of the public who urged the city to put the cart plan on hold and instead study whether the city ought to turn the trash system over to a private operator. “I think you are getting the cart before the horse here,” said Jim Mullins, a
Jeanne Pees with the Sunset Hills Neighborhood Association asked commissioners to consider funding for curb and gutter and sidewalk repairs in her neighborhood.
Jim Mullins, a field representative for Americans for Prosperity, asked commissioners to not fund the city’s sustainability coordinator position. He pointed to Johnson County, which has defunded a similar position as part of a budget cutting strategy. He said the city could reallocate the work to other departments. — City reporter Chad Lawhorn can be reached at 832-6362. Follow him at Twitter.com/clawhorn_ljw
Lawrence resident and a field director for Americans for Prosperity. Commissioners on Tuesday did not have any discussion about privatizing the city trash service. In other news, commissioners did discuss creating a curbside recycling system. Commissioners on a 5-0 vote approved a “resolution of intent” that formally declares the city will study options for a citywide curbside recycling program. But commissioners did not discuss any of the major details related to a curbside program, and also noted the resolution does not commit the city to start a curbside program. But the resolution does give staff members the authority to spend the next 90 days working on a request for proposals that could be sent to private companies interested in operating a citywide curbside recycling system.
Using mouthwashes or sprays that numb mouth pain. Kendra Metz, of Eudora, is just recovering from hand, foot and mouth disease along with her husband and their 17-monthold son, Owen. She said Owen had a fever of 102 degrees, blisters in his mouth and a rash on his legs. “He didn’t want to eat or drink much of anything so it was hard to keep him hydrated,” she said. As Owen started to heal, his parents caught the illness and they had the classic symptoms: fever, blisters in the mouth, and a rash on their hands and feet. She said the blisters on the palms of her hands and on the bottoms of her feet were the most painful. It was hard for her to do simple tasks like pick up her son and drive. She said she couldn’t go barefoot; she had to wear socks and shoes for cushioning. “For about three days, it felt like I was walking on little pieces of glass everywhere,” she said. “It was painful.” Metz said her son goes to a child-care provider who has just two other children and they had the illness about six months ago. She’s not sure where they picked it up, but said she’s heard from other mothers that it’s pretty prevalent. “There’s a lot of hype about it among mothers groups,” she said.
Shirley Grubbs, nurse and communicable disease team leader for the Lawrence-Douglas County Health Department, said the hand, foot, and mouth disease can be spread by coming in contact with saliva, nasal mucus, fluid in blisters, and feces from an infected person. It also may be spread when infected persons touch objects, like toys, that are then touched by others. Grubbs said infected people are most contagious during the first week of illness. But the viruses that cause the disease can remain in the body for several weeks after symptoms are gone, which means infected people can still pass the infection to others even though they may appear well. She said there’s no definitive answer on when it’s OK for children to return to day care or to participate in public activities like swimming. She recommends that children stay home if they have a fever or if they are drooling. Pediatric and Adolescent Medicine doctors say it’s OK to return to day care once the fever is gone. The most common complication of the disease is dehydration because it may hurt for children to swallow with the blisters. In very rare cases, it can lead to viral meningitis or inflammation of the brain. — Health reporter Karrey Britt can be reached at 832-7190.

U.N. observers attacked near besieged town BEIRUT (AP) — The U.S. accused Russia of escalating the Syrian conflict by sending attack helicopters to President Bashar Assad’s regime, and U.N. observers were attacked Tuesday with stones, metal rods and gunfire that blocked them from a besieged rebel-held town where civilians were feared trapped by government shelling. The accusation by U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton that Moscow was arming the Assad regime came as the top U.N. peacekeeping official said Syria was already in a state of civil war. “We are concerned about the latest information we have that there are attack helicopters on the way from Russia to Syria, which will escalate the conflict quite dramatically,” Clinton said in Washington. There was no immediate reaction from the Russian Foreign Ministry. Moscow insists that any arms it supplies to its Damascus ally are not being used against anti-government protesters in the 15-month-old uprising. The U.N. observers
were not hurt as they were turned back by the assault on their vehicles by an angry crowd near the town of Haffa, the U.N. said. The source of the gunfire was not clear. Activists blamed regime loyalists for the attack. The violence raised questions about the ability of about 300 unarmed monitors to provide a useful assessment of a country that is spiraling toward civil war. “All U.N. observers are now back at their bases and are secure,” said Sausan Ghosheh, a spokeswoman for U.N. observers in Syria. She said monitors have been trying to reach Haffa since June 7. Meanwhile, the U.N.’s peacekeeping chief, Herve Ladsous, said the Syrian conflict had escalated into civil war. “Yes, I think one can say that,” Ladsous told Reuters and Agence FrancePresse in an interview, his spokesman confirmed. U.N. observers have seen a steep rise in violence and a dangerous shift in tactics by both sides in Syria in the last five days, the spokesman, Kieran Dwyer said.

BRIEFLY Deficit $844.5B through 8 months WASHINGTON — The federal budget deficit is approaching $1 trillion for a fourth straight year even though the government is collecting more tax revenue than last year. The Treasury Department said Tuesday that the deficit grew by $124.6 billion in May. That put the deficit through the first eight months of the budget year at $844.5 billion, or 8.9 percent below last year’s imbalance for the same period.
MIAMI — A homeless man whose face was mostly chewed off in a bizarre attack alongside a busy South Florida highway is in good spirits, talking and walking with the help of hospital staff, doctors said Tuesday. Ronald Poppo’s left eye was removed, but doctors are trying to find a way to restore vision in his right eye. He will likely remain at Jackson Memorial Hospital’s Ryder Trauma Center for several more weeks and will need more surgeries before he can explore the options for reconstructing his face.

WASHINGTON rite of passage to adulthood, summer jobs for teens are disappearing. Fewer than three in 10 American teenagers now hold jobs such as running cash registers, mowing lawns or busing restaurant tables from June to August. The decline has been particularly sharp since 2000, with employment for 16-to-19-year olds falling to the lowest level since World War II. And teen employment may never return to prerecession levels, suggests a projection by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. The drop in teen employment, steeper than for other age groups, is partly a cultural shift. More youths are spending summer months in school, at music or learning camps or in other activities geared for college. But the decline is especially troubling for teens for whom college may be out of reach, leaving them increasingly idle and with few options to earn wages

Older workers, immigrants and debt-laden college graduates are taking away lower-skill work as they struggle to find their own jobs in the weak economy. Upper-income white teens are three times as likely to have summer jobs as poor black teens, sometimes capitalizing on their parents’ social networks for help. Overall, more than 44 percent of teens who want summer jobs don’t get them or work fewer hours than they prefer. Economists say teens who aren’t getting jobs are often those who could use them the most. Many are not moving on to more education. “I have big concerns about this generation of

He said the income gap between rich and poor is exacerbated when lower-income youths who are less likely to enroll in college are unable to get skills and training. “For young high school graduates or dropouts, their early work experience is more closely tied to their success in the labor market,” he said. Washington, D.C., was the jurisdiction most likely to have teens wanting summer work but unable to get it or working fewer hours than desired, with more than three in five in that situation. It was followed by Arizona, California, Washington state, Florida, Tennessee, North Carolina and Nevada. On the other end of the scale, Wyoming, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Nebraska, South Dakota and Kansas had teens who were more often able to find work. All those states have fewer immigrant workers.

Notable Verizon Wireless, the nation’s largest cellphone company, is phasing out nearly all of its existing phone plans and replacing them with pricing schemes that encourage customers to connect their nonphone devices, like tablets and PCs, to the Verizon network. The revamped plans let families and other subscribers share a monthly data allowance over as many as 10 devices — the biggest overhaul in the price of wireless service since the cellphone became a mainstream device. The idea is likely to be copied quickly, at least by AT&T Inc., which has already said it is considering introducing shared-data plans soon.

Face-chewing victim ‘awake and alert’
The government is sticking with its earlier forecast on the projected size of the Kansas winter wheat harvest. The Kansas Agricultural Service on Tuesday projected Kansas farmers would harvest 387 million bushels. That estimate is unchanged from last month’s report. If the agency is right, that would make it the highest wheat production since 2003 in Kansas. This year’s crop is expected to be 40 percent bigger than the drought-devastated 2011 harvest. The service predicted yields will average about 43 bushels per acre, also unchanged from a month ago.

A glimmer of hope in Iran talks
Fresh air The situation was a little chaotic, but the outcome of the recent redistricting scramble is a breath of fresh air for Kansas voters.
he speed with which candidates had to respond to new legislative and congressional district lines handed down late Thursday made the process a little chaotic, but the end result wasn’t all bad for the state and its residents. The new lines drawn by three federal judges after legislators deadlocked on the process was the political equivalent of that old children’s game, Fruit Basket Upset. After setting political considerations aside, judges produced legislative and congressional districts for the state that were far different from the districts that had been engineered for decades to protect incumbent officeholders, particularly those in the majority party. Just like that, dozens of state legislators found they were no longer living in their districts or that one or two other incumbents had joined them in those districts. In 25 House and four Senate districts, there were no incumbents. Political leaders described the new district maps in a number of ways: disruptive, confusing and simply “a mess.” Yet, for Kansas voters, the events of the last few days also have been a democratic breath of fresh air. The judges’ maps stirred up Kansas politics in an arguably positive way. The shake-up opened the door to dozens of candidates who may not otherwise have run because they saw little chance of winning against an incumbent officeholder. It forced many incumbents to reevaluate their constituencies and rethink their political futures. Some changed residences to stick with old constituencies or seek out new ones; others decided it was simply time to step down. Those who decided to make the race will have to prove their worth to a new voter base rather than riding their incumbent record and name recognition to an easy victory. In recent years, dozens of Kansas legislators were elected without opposition even from the other parties. A few incumbents — including two from Lawrence, Rep. Paul Davis and Rep. Tom Sloan — have that luxury this year, but far more — including Rep. Barbara Ballard and Sen Marci Francisco — have competition from the opposing party, their own party, or both. Voters will have many reasons to vote in the Aug. 7 primary, which will narrow the field in dozens of legislative races. As often has been noted in this space, contested elections force candidates to articulate and clarify their positions on many issues and allow voters to become better informed about the people they elect to represent them. They allow constituents to have a real choice. The Legislature’s failure to complete its redistricting duties this year certainly was deplorable, and in some ways, many of those legislators now are paying the price. Rather than predictable, uncompetitive races that return most incumbents to office, the state is getting an election season filled with interesting contests and meaningful choices. That’s a big win for Kansas voters. LAWRENCE

CAIRO — The Iran nuclear negotiations may not be headed toward a dead end in Moscow next week, as feared. Iran’s top negotiator has said he is ready to “engage on the proposal” from Western nations for Iran to export its supply of 20 percent-enriched uranium as a first step toward a broader nuclear deal. Saeed Jalili, the Iranian chief representative in the talks, made the comment in a phone conversation Monday night with Catherine Ashton, the chief European Union diplomat who heads the “P5+1” negotiating group of major powers. Jalili also dropped Iran’s call for another preliminary meeting to prepare for the Moscow session, which is set for next Monday and Tuesday. “They backed down,” a European diplomat who is involved in the talks told me Monday. “They had been setting up a failure in Moscow and preparing to blame us for it,” he said, arguing that the renewed agreement to engage, after several weeks of foot-dragging, was “a small diplomatic victory” for Ashton. “The formula we have agreed is that they will engage in the substance of our proposal,” the diplomat said. “In turn we will think a bit about their ideas.” He added that the Western powers have not yet offered to halt the economic sanctions that
The possible linkage of the nuclear issue to Iran’s broader diplomatic agenda is bound to be controversial.” will take effect June 28 and July 1, though they have said that Iran’s “steps will be met by reciprocal steps.” The Iran talks have been a roller coaster of speculation, with hopes rising and falling as each side plays out the game of expectations. The opening meeting in Istanbul, in April, produced a surge of optimism, which plunged to foreboding after the meeting in Baghdad last month. Some have predicted that the talks might collapse altogether after next week’s meetings, given Iran’s behavior in Baghdad and since. Is this just Tehran’s way of stringing along the talks, while it continues to push ahead with enrichment of uranium that could eventually be used to make a bomb? That’s precisely what some analysts predicted the Irani-
ans would do — show just enough progress at each session to keep the negotiations going, without ever actually getting to yes. The counterargument is that time is actually working against the Iranians, because the P5+1 have made no promise that they would remove major sanctions if Iran agreed to export its existing stockpile of uranium enriched to 20 percent. Iranian officials have yet to make their own formal proposal on the nuclear issue, even though Ashton presented them with a written plan in Baghdad. But intriguingly, the Iranians are said to have “left behind” in Baghdad some documents outlining their positions on Syria and Bahrain, two regional issues where Tehran has major interests. The possible linkage of the nuclear issue to Iran’s broader diplomatic agenda is bound to be controversial. The United States and its allies have wanted to limit conversations to nuclear matters; Iran evidently seeks a diplomatic engagement that addresses a much wider range of security matters in the region. The encouraging exchange between Ashton and Jalili comes after several weeks of growing pessimism about the negotiations. At the disappointing session in Baghdad late last month, Jalili said that Ashton and her team “must
have been mistaken” if they thought the Iranian deputy negotiator, Ali Bagheri, had agreed to discuss details on exporting enriched uranium. In conversations since Baghdad, Bagheri is said to have been less cooperative, sending what the European diplomat described to me as “increasingly acerbic letters” to Ashton’s deputy, Helga Schmid. A skeptic would caution that the Iranians, for all the hints and suggestions about exporting their stock of 20 percent-enriched uranium, haven’t yet put a word on paper. In contrast, Ashton’s Baghdad proposal was reiterated in letters sent by her deputy June 4 and June 11. In terms of the choreography of the talks, the Western powers appear to be chasing after Iran, which is never a good sign in negotiations. In the background, as ever, remain the drivers for diplomacy: Economic sanctions have already damaged the Iranian economy and are soon going to get considerably worse; Iran also faces the threat of possible Israeli military action, and the nowconfirmed U.S. use of cyberweapons to disrupt the nuclear program. There’s a lot of theater here, to be sure, but also a danger of significant conflict if progress isn’t made soon. — David Ignatius is a columnist for Washington Post Writers Group.

From the Lawrence Daily Journal-World for June 13, 1912: YEARS “Commodore AGO Robert E. Peary, IN 1912 Arctic explorer and United States Naval officer, may be in Lawrence this summer and tell of some of his expeditions into the frozen northland. Peary is booked with the White Chautauqua Company and this company is making an effort to arrange for a nine-days program in Lawrence in August. If the date is made Peary will be one of the men on the program.” — Compiled by Sarah St. John

Voters avoiding political affiliations In his 2007 book, “The Great Upheaval: America and the Birth of the Modern World, 1788-1800,” historian Jay Winik writes that among Thomas Jefferson, Alexander Hamilton and James Madison, none “believed in political parties, which they feared would lead to ‘rage,’ ‘dissolution,’ and eventual ‘ruin’ of the republic...” The latest poll from the Pew Research Center, “Partisan Polarization Surges in Bush, Obama Years,” seems to indicate that the American people have come around to their way of thinking. The poll, writes The New York Times, found that “the share of self-identified Republicans has declined over the last two decades to about 24 percent of the country, from about 31 percent. The share of Democrats has stayed about steady — to 32 percent, from 33 percent — while the share of independents has risen to 38 percent, from 29 percent.” And while “Americans of different races are no more polarized in their political views than they were 25 years ago,” suggests the Times, the poll indicates that “Republicans have moved farther to the right — on economic issues, at least — than Democrats have move to the left” and the parties “appear to have lost some of the people who were closer to the middle of the political spectrum and retained those closer to
What appears to frustrate voters is that not enough members of either party seem capable, or interested, in solving our problems.”
the extremes.” In short, more Americans are ditching the big two political parties, leaving hardliners behind. The result? Political stagnation. So much for well-reasoned debate and consensus. So much for moving the country forward. What appears to frustrate voters is that not enough members of either party seem capable, or interested, in solving our problems. Instead, their primary concern appears to be achieving and holding onto power and the perks of office. Democrats answer the problem of increasing debt with more debt. Republicans want to reduce the size and cost of government, but won’t make meaningful cuts. The media play a major role in perpetuating the gridlock by mostly ignoring solutions, focusing
instead on the political horse race and the names politicians call each other. The response from Democrats to a serious proposal for repairing health care as proposed by House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan, R-Wis., was a TV ad in which an actor portraying Ryan tossed an elderly woman in a wheelchair over a cliff. This is not a serious response to a serious proposal. It is street theater. A major reason for government’s inability — even unwillingness — to repair its own dysfunction is that we are still living off the inertia of government’s central role during the Great Depression, and later “The Great Society” in which government presented itself as everyone’s savior. Personal responsibility for one’s life and accountability for wrong decisions took a back seat. “A Time for Governing: Policy Solutions from the Pages of National Affairs,” a new book compiled by the quarterly journal, National Affairs, contains essays that address credible solutions to our major economic problems that nearly everyone, regardless of party affiliation, acknowledges must be solved for a stable American future. In his essay “Beyond the Welfare State,” National Affairs editor Yuval Levin addresses the heart of the problem: “Human societies do not work by obeying orderly com-
mands from central managers, however well-meaning; they work through the erratic interplay of individual and, even more, of familial and communal decisions answering locally felt desires and needs.” Levin adds, “In our everyday experience, the bureaucratic state presents itself not as a benevolent provider and protector, but as a corpulent behemoth — flabby, slow and expressionless, unmoved by our concerns, demanding compliance with arcane and seemingly meaningless rules as it breathes musty air in our faces and sends us to the back of the line. “Unresponsive ineptitude is not merely an annoyance. The sluggishness of the welfare state drains it of its moral force. The crushing weight of bureaucracy permits neither efficiency nor idealism. It thus robs us of a good part of the energy of democratic capitalism and encourages a corrosive cynicism that cannot help but undermine the moral aims of the socialdemocratic vision.” Is it any wonder the public decreasingly identifies with either party and that a growing majority wishes to be “independent” of both? It will take more than the election of a new president and Congress to fix this. It will require a new way of thinking — which is really an old way of thinking — by “we the people.” — Cal Thomas is a columnist for Tribune Media Services.

Why not bring back Greinke? KANSAS CITY, MO. — Elite major league pitchers who enter free agency, such as, oh, Zack Greinke for example, amount to high-stakes poker games. Throwing a baseball, such a violent, unnatural action, makes every pitcher a risk to break down physically. Guaranteeing Greinke $100 million or so over five years requires more than money. It requires guts. Kansas City Royals owner David Glass has the money, but does he have the stomach? Does he care enough about the public-trust aspect of Greinke owning one of just 30 Major League Baseball franchises to buy Kansas City a winner? Glass could come up with 100 million reasons not to risk so much and his reasons too easily would be accepted by a fan base hypnotized into a state of indifference by years of substandard baseball played at poorly located, yet beautiful Kauffman Stadium. One counter argument trumps all: Greinke would have more value to the Royals than to any other franchise. He turns 29 in October, which means he would be just 33 at the end of a five-year deal. He would draw big crowds every fifth day. A maturing lineup dotted with potential All-Stars armed with lethal bats and sound gloves won’t leave any mark in Royals history if they don’t have a serious starting rotation. No better place to start in building that than to put a dominant, experienced ace such as Greinke at the front of it. It’s what the majority of the Royals’ fan base wants. Hearing that made Greinke feel good Tuesday night after he allowed a leadoff home run to Alex Gordon in the first and then shut out the Royals the rest of his stay on the mound. He pitched seven innings, allowed five hits, struck out eight (seven in the first four innings) and didn’t get a decision in the Royals’ 2-1 victory against the Brewers. “I mean, it’s nice because I was pretty rude on the way out,” he said of the fans’ desire to have him come home. “I felt like I had to in order to get out. I didn’t want to have to be the bad guy, but I felt like I had to be. But I liked it here. Like I said, the fans are great. I don’t know how so many of them come to the games when they’ve been bad for so long, but it’s pretty impressive.” Greinke didn’t sell his Kansas City home, which has created hope that he intends to return. Sorry, it had nothing to do with anything, Greinke said. “I got a two-year lease, so I was like, ‘All right, might as well rent it out.’ We like it. When we got married, it was our first home, so my wife really doesn’t want to get rid of it either.” If Greinke returns to Kansas City via free agency, it won’t be at a discount price. Nor should it be. The only way to convince one of the game’s best pitchers that the organization has changed is for the Royals to outbid the competition for him, just in time for the lease on his house to expire, just in time to surround him with enough talent to contend.

FORMER KANSAS UNIVERSITY BASKETBALL STANDOUT JULIAN WRIGHT talks at the Bill Self basketball camp Tuesday at Horejsi Center. Wright is hoping for a return to the NBA after a strong showing in the NBA Developmental League.
Wright confident NBA is in his future By Gary Bedore firstname.lastname@example.org
Julian Wright believes an ultra-successful season in the NBA Developmental League has resurrected his basketball career. The No. 13 overall pick in the 2007 NBA Draft — who played sparingly for New Orleans and Toronto during his first four seasons in the NBA — averaged 15.1 points and 8.0 rebounds a game for the 2012 NBADL champion Austin (Texas) Toros. More importantly, the 25-year-old former Kansas University forward was the team’s leading scorer in the playoffs. Wright averaged 19.8 points (off 60.5 percent shooting) and 7.8 boards while logging 31.7 minutes a game in nine playoff games. “For myself, it was comforting to know I have skills and have what it takes. It’s all about hopefully getting in the right situation to show it,” said the

6-foot-8, 240-pounder, who has accepted an invitation to play for the NBA’s Brooklyn Nets in the Orlando Summer League in early July. “It was my first time in a while just being aggressive while scoring and being a guy they could count on. “I was hoping for a call-up (to the Toros’ affiliate, the San Antonio Spurs), but in hindsight I was glad I was able to get those minutes rather than getting called up and not playing as much.” Wright — he is in town for this week’s Bill Self basketball camp — said his confidence is at an all-time high after playing for what he called “a great organization, one affiliated with the Spurs, who are topnotch. It was great to develop,
get a lot of repetitions and just play.” Wright’s first NBA contract expired at an inopportune time — the year of the NBA lockout. He was not invited to Toronto Raptors’ training camp, leaving him as a free agent with limited interest from other NBA teams. “There was a risk in staying (in U.S.) because of the lockout,” said Wright, who played at KU two seasons before turning pro. “Not knowing what was going on ... I felt I had a duty to be a representative of the Toronto Raptors at the time of the lockout, going to meetings and traveling back and forth. Overseas didn’t seem like the best idea with me having to go midseason. “I took it in stride. There were other guys with NBA talents that were not able to stick with a team or get on a team. I went to the developmental league and it was great for me. Please see WRIGHT, page 5B
Royals, Mendoza baffle Brewers KANSAS CITY, MO. (AP) — Much of the crowd at Kauffman Stadium on Tuesday night had no doubt turned out to see the Brewers’ Zack Greinke face his former team for the first time. By the sixth inning, their attention had shifted squarely to the Royals’ Luis Mendoza. He carried a no-hit bid into the seventh inning before the Kansas City bullpen bailed him out of trouble, and Billy Butler’s go-ahead single in the eighth inning gave all those fans reason to celebrate with a 2-1 victory over Milwaukee. “Every inning it’s like, ‘OK, no hits this inning.’ Of course I knew it was a nohitter,” said Mendoza, who has shuffled between the bullpen and rotation much of the season. “You have to keep it a close game,” he said, “because Greinke’s a great pitcher.” The only real mistake Greinke made was to Alex Gordon leading off the game. He sent a pitch soaring over the right-field wall to give Kansas City the early lead. Gordon came through again when he faced Francisco Rodriguez (0-4) leading off the eighth. His double put him in scoring position, and a sacrifice bunt by Chris Getz moved him to third, giving Butler the chance to bring him home with a base hit to center field. Jonathan Broxton came in for the ninth inning and put runners on the corners with one out, but struck out pinch hitter George Kottaras and got fellow pinch-hitter Brooks Conrad to ground out to shortstop, ending the game and wrapping up his 15th save of the season. “Some closers are like that,” Royals manager Ned Yost said. “They come into the game and at the end of the day, he gets the job done.” Mendoza certainly got the job done. He didn’t allow a hit until Ryan Braun singled leading off the seventh, and then he walked Aramis Ramirez. Aaron Crow came in and limited the damage to Rickie Weeks’ tying single, and Greg Holland (2-2) survived a shaky eighth inning to get the game to Broxton. Please see ROYALS, page 7B
Thunder defeat Heat in Game 1 OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Kevin Durant showed LeBron James how to play the fourth quarter in the NBA Finals. Durant scored 17 of his 36 points in another nightmarish final period for James and his team, leading a Thunder storm that overwhelmed the Heat and gave Oklahoma City a 105-94 victory over Miami in Game 1 on Tuesday night. Teaming with Russell Westbrook to outscore the Heat in the second half by themselves, Durant struck first in his head-to-head matchup with James, who had seven points in the final quarter and was helpless to stop the league’s three-time scoring champion. Westbrook turned around a poor shooting start to finish with 27 points, 11 assists and eight rebounds for the Thunder, keying a strong finish to the third period that gave the Thunder the lead for good. Durant took over from there. Scoring in nearly every
way possible, Durant finished 12 of 20 from the field and added eight rebounds. He and Westbrook outscored the Heat 41-40 over the final two periods, showing that maybe this time it will be offense that wins championships. James finished with 30 points, his most in any of his 11 finals games, but had only one basket over the first 8:15 of the fourth, when the Thunder seized control of a game they trailed for all but the final few seconds of the first three quarters. James averaged just three points in the fourth quarters of the Heat’s six-game loss to Dallas last year, taking almost all the heat for Miami’s finals failure. He was good in this one, Durant was just better. And when fans chanted “MVP! MVP!” late in the game, they weren’t talking about James, the guy who won the regular-season award. They meant Durant, who is in a race with James for his first ring — and maybe the ti-
tle of best player in the game. Game 2 is Thursday night in Oklahoma City. Dwyane Wade had 19 points but shot just 7 of 19 for the Heat, while Shane Battier provided some rare offense by scoring 17 points, his high this postseason. Turning to a small lineup late in the third quarter, the Thunder improved to 9-0 at home in the postseason. Defensive ace Thabo Sefolosha helped defend James during the Thunder’s comeback, relieving Durant of the burden so he could focus on his scoring. And right now, nobody does it better. Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said his team, pushed to seven games against Boston in a grueling conference finals the Heat finally won Saturday, preferred this quick turnaround. But perhaps they ran out of gas against the young Thunder, whose core players are all 23 and younger and look as if they could keep playing all night.

Elite tennis rivalry just beginning PARIS (AP) â€” After all those Grand Slam finals between Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal, a record eight in all, thereâ€™s a new tantalizing tennis rivalry. This one, between Nadal and Novak Djokovic, offers the added benefit of being more competitive. And given the participantsâ€™ ages, it should last awhile. Nadal and Djokovic played each other to decide the titles at each of the past four Grand Slam tournaments, most recently the French Open, where Nadal won a two-day, rain-interrupted final 6-4, 6-3, 2-6, 7-5. No one should be surprised if they make that five in a row in less than a month at Wimbledon. Which would be remarkable, considering that before these two came along, no pair of men had met in more than two consecutive major finals since the start of the Open era in 1968. Not Borg and McEnroe. Not Sampras and Agassi. Not even Federer and Nadal. â€œWe are very young, and we played over 30 times against each other,â€? said Djokovic, who trails 19-14 overall in their se-
ries, â€œand hopefully we can have many more battles in the next years.â€? The No. 1-ranked Djokovic turned 25 last month; No. 2 Nadal is barely a week past his 26th birthday. Theyâ€™ve already accumulated more head-to-head meetings than Nadal and the 30-year-old Federer (Nadal leads 18-10), and are gaining in the Grand Slam final department (Nadal leads Federer 6-2; Djokovic leads Nadal 3-2). If they do meet again at Wimbledon next month or the U.S. Open in September, there will be those who will wonder whether Nadalâ€™s current threematch winning streak against Djokovic â€” at Monte Carlo, Rome and Paris, all on red clay
â€” says much about who has the upper hand in general at the moment. It might just reflect superiority on one particular surface. â€œI donâ€™t think (Nadal) necessarily still has the answers. I think he fights through this match, and itâ€™s clay, and heâ€™s confident, and he wins the key points there toward the end,â€? seven-time major champion Mats Wilander said after presenting Nadal with the trophy at Roland Garros on Monday. Right now, thereâ€™s such a tiny sliver separating Djokovic and Nadal. Theyâ€™re probably the sportâ€™s two best returners of serve, two best movers and two best retrievers of opponentsâ€™ shots. Theyâ€™re also capable of switching from defense to offense in a blink as well or better than anyone. In the French Open final, they played more than 60 points that lasted 10 strokes or more â€” long, complicated exchanges that resulted not from conservative, keep-the-ball-in-play tennis, but rather an extraordinary ability to force the other to come up with the goods over
and over â€” and each won more than 30. Wilander pointed to the puzzle of the top three men in the sport, Djokovic, Nadal and the No. 3-ranked Federer, a trio that has combined to win 28 of the past 29 Grand Slam titles dating to 2005. (The exception: Juan Martin del Potro beat Federer in the 2009 U.S. Open final.) Nadal always seems to have the edge over Federer. Until recently, Federer had the edge over Djokovic, who beat the Swiss star in the U.S. Open semifinals in September and the French Open semifinals last week. And for a stretch of seven consecutive wins that began in 2011 and was capped by the 2012 Australian Open final â€” a 5-hour, 53-minute epic â€” Djokovic had the edge over Nadal. Nadal already owns 11 Grand Slam titles, Djokovic five. Put those numbers together, and you get Federerâ€™s 16, the record. The question isnâ€™t whether Nadal and Djokovic will continue to add to their totals. The question is how many more times they will do it at the otherâ€™s expense.

SAN FRANCISCO â€” If nothing else, this will make one heck of a composition if the assignment is, â€œWhat I Did on My EighthGrade Summer Vacation.â€? Andy Zhang, 14, will play in a U.S. Open before he ever takes one of his online classes as a freshman. It is lucky for him that, when the U.S. Golf Association called him Monday evening and told him he had been promoted from alternate because Paul Casey withdrew, he was free this week. â€œIâ€™m in summer break right now,â€? Zhang (Class of 2016) said Tuesday after his first practice round at the Olympic Club. â€œNo school for me.â€? He played with Masters champion Bubba Watson. He signed autographs for people more than four times his age. He was surrounded by reporters as soon as he finished his round. It was the kind of thing he probably envisioned when he moved from China to Florida at the age of 10 to pursue golf. He just didnâ€™t see it coming while he still was in braces (both top and bottom teeth). Along with studying history, he is making it. Zhang will be the youngest golfer ever in the U.S. Open. â€œHeâ€™s a big boy for 14, and he can hit it good,â€? Watson said of the youngster who is six feet, 174 pounds. â€œObviously he can play. Itâ€™s not like it just luckily happened. He can play, to get here.â€? The question is, when is it too early? Ty Tryon was a phenom who earned his PGA Tour card at 17, then bombed out. He now grinds it out in minitour events in Florida, and has frequently played with Zhang. Are Zhang, his parents, his manager (yes, minitour pro Chris Gold is his manager) and his golf teacher (Andrew Park, in the David Leadbetter stable) pushing it? No, says one reasonably well informed source. â€œHe qualified. He earned a spot,â€? Tiger Woods said. â€œI tried it when I was 15. â€œHe went out there and went through both stages and did it. Itâ€™s not â€˜too youngâ€™ if you can do it,â€? Woods said. â€œJust think about the experience heâ€™s going to gain, playing in this event ...â€? Who knows if Zhang will ever become a star? Tuesday he was one excited kid. â€œThis morning,â€? the 14-year-old said, â€œI said, â€˜Wow. I just shook Tigerâ€™s hand.â€™â€?

Pacquiao-Bradley promoter asks for fight inquiry LAS VEGAS â€” The promoter for Manny Pacquiao and Timothy Bradley is asking Nevada officials for a full investigation into the controversial scoring of their championship fight in Las Vegas last weekend. Top Rank CEO Bob Arum says he submitted a formal request for an inquiry to the Nevada attorney generalâ€™s office on Monday. Bradley took the welterweight title from defending champion Pacquiao on Saturday night, ending the Filipino fighterâ€™s remarkable sevenyear unbeaten run. Bradley won 115-113 on two scorecards, while losing by the same margin on the third. The decision was roundly booed by the crowd at the MGM Grand arena. Arum says the only way to restore fansâ€™ confidence in boxing is to have an independent investigation.
Lawyers: Boxer, jail donâ€™t mix LAS VEGAS â€” A judge in Las Vegas said sheâ€™ll decide later this week whether to ease jail conditions for Floyd Mayweather Jr., after his lawyers argued that the undefeated champion is getting out of shape in solitary confinement and may never fight again. Mayweatherâ€™s camp asked the court to move the boxer into the general jail population â€” something that jail officials had avoided out of fear for the celebrityâ€™s safety â€” or put him in house arrest for the rest of his three-month sentence. Mayweather pleaded guilty in December to misdemeanor domestic battery and no contest to two harassment charges that stemmed from an attack on his ex-girlfriend while two of their children watched. He was sentenced to three months and entered the jail June 1. Mayweatherâ€™s lawyers argue that his cell, no larger than 7-by-12 feet, has barely enough floor space for pushups and situps. But prosecutors argued heâ€™s â€œdeconditioningâ€? by choice, and declining much of his food. â€œHe has the ability to exercise, he just chooses not to,â€? prosecutor Lisa Luzaich said. â€œItâ€™s jail. Where did he think he was going? The Four Seasons?â€?

Clemens fate now up to jurors
WASHINGTON â€” The dozen Washingtonians who will decide Roger Clemensâ€™ fate heard a day of closing arguments stuffed with attentiongetting sound bites. The eight women and four men who mostly care little about baseball then began deliberations Tuesday that will impact one of the most successful pitchers of his generation â€” and, in a way, the criminal pursuit of athletes accused of illegal doping. â€œYou,â€? prosecutor Gil Guerrero told the jurors, â€œare the final umpires here.â€? Having digested the competing spins on 26 days of testimony by 46 witnesses, the jury met for some 15 minutes before being excused for the day at 5 p.m. They will reconvene this afternoon, then unless they reach a quick verdict, take off until Monday because of a long-scheduled out-of-town business trip by the judge. Clemens is charged with perjury, making false PRO FOOTBALL statements and obstructing Congress when he testified at a deposition and at a nationally-teleChiefs to try out LB Banks vised hearing in February 2008. The heart of the KANSAS CITY, MO. â€” Linebacker Brian Banks charges center on his repeated denials that he is getting a tryout with the Kansas City Chiefs used steroids and human growth hormone.

Weis seeking solutions, not silver linings at KU By Matt Tait email@example.com

LAWRENCE RAIDERS PITCHER JD PROCHASKA DELIVERS against the Topeka Capitals. The Raiders lost, 4-3, on Tuesday night at Free State High.
Raiders stumble ————
Topeka Capitals prevail, 4-3 Chris Duderstadt firstname.lastname@example.org
The Lawrence Raiders of the American Legion Baseball League fell to the Topeka Capitals, 4-3, Tuesday at Lawrence Free State High School. Raiders starting pitcher JD Prochaska was in control in the early innings as he struck out the side in the first. The Raiders’ offense threatened in the first two innings and loaded the bases in the second, but was unable to push any runners across the plate. Cam Solko picked up right where Prochaska left off as he pitched another scoreless inning, but the Raiders appeared to be in trouble when Topeka’s Jordon Haugen led off the top of the fourth with a triple. Raiders reliever Trent Johnson proceeded to strike out Jaren Kutzke followed by catcher Landon Hay picking off Haugen at third base. Johnson then retired Macke to end the inning. In the Raiders’ half of the fourth, Landon Hay legged out an infield sin-
gle to open the inning. Corbin Francisco went on to drive Hay in with an RBI double down the third base line to give the Raiders a 1-0 lead. The Capitals answered in the top of the fifth to tie the game at 1-1. Johnson walked the first two batters he faced, and then Dawson Pomeroy laid down a sacrifice bunt to move the runners into scoring position with one out. Vince Ramos knocked Will Edwards in with an infield single, but Johnson retired the next to batters to escape further damage. CJ Roush put the Raiders back on top with a leadoff triple, and he came into score on throwing error to give Lawrence a 2-1 advantage. “Coach (Brad Romme) just told me to get out in front of it because the first two at-bats I just kind of popped up, so I just made an adjustment and hit the ball hard,” Roush said. The Raiders’ lead did not last for long, however, as Topeka’s Zach Macke hit a two-RBI double to allow the Capitals to retake the
lead. Topeka added another run on a fielder’s choice to take a 4-2 lead going into the bottom of the sixth. After each team was unable to score in their next half inning, the Raiders needed two runs in the bottom of the seventh to force extra innings. Roush got things started for the Raiders with a one-out triple and then came in to score on Aaron Gile’s RBI single. That was all Lawrence would get and Topeka was able to hold on for a 4-3 victory. Lawrence will be back in action in a tournament Thursday in Topeka at Shawnee County Amateur Baseball Assn. “From what I have seen so far is a lot of good teams in this tournament,” Romme said. “They will be much better teams than what we saw in the Mid America tournament so we’re going to have to be locked in.” Capitals 000 013 0 — 4 3 1 Raiders 000 110 1 — 3 10 1 W — Foerg.

Eight DVL schools to form new Northeast Kansas League By Justin Nutter email@example.com
For the last 31 years, the Delaware Valley League has been a staple of high school athletics in northeast Kansas. However, the league’s 32nd year will also be its last. Before the end of the 2011-12 academic year, representatives from eight DVL member schools met and agreed to break away from the existing league. They’ll form an entirely new league, which will begin competition in the fall of 2013. The new league, which will be known as the Northeast Kansas League, will consist of four Jefferson County high schools — McLouth, Jefferson County North, Oskaloosa and Valley Falls — as well as Easton-Pleasant Ridge, Maur Hill-Mount Academy, Jackson Heights and Leavenworth Immaculata. The six remaining league schools — Troy, Highland-Doniphan West, Wathena-Riverside, Kansas City Christian, Horton and Effingham-Atchison County Community High School — have decided to apply to other conferences, effectively ending the DVL era. “Eight schools basically had talks during the last year and we decided the 14-team league had just gotten too big,” DVL president Andy Metsker said. “Unlike college football where they want to have mega-conferences, we want to go the other way.” The Delaware Valley League, as we know it with 14 schools, will exist for the next school year. But
come June 1, 2013, there will be no more DVL. There’s been a longstanding history between several of the eight schools forming the new league. Before joining the DVL, Pleasant Ridge and the four Jefferson County schools were all members of the now-defunct Jefferson County League. The existing relationships between those schools, as well as locations and rivalries with other DVL opponents, were just a few of several factors considered when deciding who would be invited into the new league. “I think that core has always had a good relationship and has always competed well with each other,” said Metsker, who is also the principal at Pleasant Ridge. “The other schools were appealing because of travel and how we compete with each other. Jackson Heights makes for a little bit farther drive, but we have very good relations with those people, so we wanted to include them as well.” Members from all eight schools met Tuesday in Oskaloosa to discuss specifics of the NEKL. League officers were elected and progress was made on constructing a league constitution. “I felt really positive when I walked out of there,” Metsker said. Metsker added league officials will try to meet four times during the 2012-13 academic year to continue preparations for the NEKL’s inaugural season. Four of the remaining
six schools have already received invitations to join other conferences. Riverside, ACCHS and Horton applied for admission into the Big Seven Conference. The league voted June 5 to accept Riverside and ACCHS, but Horton did not receive enough votes for admission. “Admission takes a twothirds vote. That’s what the constitution requires to get into the league,” said Andrew Gaddis, Hiawatha High School athletic director and Big Seven secretary/treasurer. “Effingham (ACCHS) was a longstanding member of the Big Seven, so everybody kind of knew what they were getting. With Riverside, we’re excited to develop some rivalries with them all across the league.” The Twin Valley League extended invitations to Troy and Doniphan West before the end of the school year. Both schools tabled the decision Monday at their respective board meetings, but must have a decision to the TVL by Friday. Horton officials discussed other options at its Monday board meeting, with the top priority being to apply to the NEKL. “That would be our best option for the kids,” Horton principal David Norman said. Other options included applying to the Twin Valley League or re-applying to the Big Seven. Plans for KC Christian were not immediately known. Athletic director Alan Chugg was not available for comment.
Last Sunday, as part of KSHB 41 Action News’ weekly Sunday Night Sports Report series, Kansas University football coach Charlie Weis sat down with Jack Harry and talked about all things Jayhawks. From the reasons he took the job to how far the Jayhawks have to go, Weis offered a candid look at both himself and the program during the brief interview. Although Weis and Harry shared a few laughs and tackled some lighter topics, one theme stood out and provided further proof that Weis came to KU to work hard and get things headed in the right direction. “When you walk into a place that’s 2-10, you’re not looking for a silver lining,” Weis told Harry. “You’re looking, ‘OK, what are the problems, how are we gonna fix ’em?’ You really just gotta take a grind mentality, a workmanlike approach and say, ‘OK, what do we have to do, on and off the field, to fix the problems?’ And you just start fixing the problems.” In a little more than six months, Weis has done a lot of that. From weeding out guys who did not fit his philosophies to dramatic improvements in the classroom, Weis has made his presence felt at KU. He also has made quite an impact with KU fans and done more than his share of the meet-andgreet type of stuff in communities large and small. “Whether you like it or not, I think it’s a necessity. I really do,” he said. “Especially in a program that’s been down here for the last few years. Your
fans are hungry for change and they want to see the change in a positive direction. (The fans) recognize who Charlie Weis is but they don’t know who Charlie Weis is. They’re two different things. So I think that going out there and them getting to know you and what you stand for and what your Weis beliefs are kind of energizes them.” Although Weis has admitted multiple times that there remains a long way to go, he reminded Harry last Sunday that there was concrete evidence out there that you can win at KU. “It wasn’t like it was 20 years ago that this program won now,” Weis said. “It was a short time ago when they were winning back-to-back bowl games.” Here are a few other highlights from the show: Weis on KC quarterback Matt Cassel: “They got Matt Cassel and they got my boy Brady Quinn, too, now. Forget about (second-year pro Ricky) Stanzi for a second, because I don’t really know him, but two of my favorite quarterbacks are on the Chiefs. I’m a big fan of Matt Cassel. ... We won plenty of games with Matt at quarterback, and I believe the Chiefs can win plenty of games with Matt at quarterback again.”
done too well against (Chiefs coach) Romeo (Crennel) now. I’m just saying. If there’s one guy in this league, other than Bill Belichick, who’s really done a nice job against Peyton Manning, it’s that Crennel guy.” On hearing from KU athletic director Sheahon Zenger last December about the KU opening: “My wife and son and I kind of had the same reaction that everyone else had when you got that phone call from Dr. Zenger — ‘Kansas?’ It’s just like when I call a recruit and they say, ‘Where are you coach,’ and I say, ‘Kansas.’ (They go), ‘Kansas?’” On where his largely negative national public image comes from: “It came from being from New Jersey. I blame everything on my parents. You know, you’re brought up in a certain spot and you get (stereotyped). But it’s not really important where it came from. The fact is, it is what it is. And I think that when (people) get to know you a little different, it really kind of opens their eyes, saying, ‘Hey, maybe we got something here.’”
On his health, after a long recovery from an incident that took place in September of 2008, when Weis was wiped out on the Notre Dame sideline during a game against Michigan: “I’ve never watched it, but I lost both my knees and my left hip. Now, I’m the bionic man; I’ve got all On new Denver Bron- metal in me, but I haven’t cos QB Peyton Manning: felt this good in a long, “Peyton Manning hasn’t long time.”

OKLAHOMA CITY THUNDER POINT GUARD RUSSELL WESTBROOK (0) CELEBRATES after a made basket as Miami Heat small forward Shane Battier looks on in Game 1 of the NBA finals on Tuesday in Oklahoma City.
Former University of Nebraska basketball coach Doc Sadler is expected to soon be named director of basketball operations at Kansas University. Sources told the Journal-World on Tuesday that Sadler, who has been on campus this week to interview with KU coach Bill Self, has been offered the job. It’s believed he has accepted or will accept and replace Barry Hinson as KU’s director of basketball operations. Hinson in March was named head coach at
Southern Illinois University. Sadler, 52, is a long-time friend of KU coach Self. He received his undergraduate degree from the University of Arkansas, where he was a student manager under coach Eddie Sutton, who is one of Self’s mentors. Sadler was an assistant at Arkansas (1982-85), Lamar (1985–86), Houston (1986), Chicago State (1987–88), Texas Tech (1991–94) and Arizona State (1994–97). He compiled a 101-89 record at Nebraska the past six years, including a 3463 conference mark. Prior to that, he was head coach
at UTEP, where he went 47–16 in his two seasons. At UTEP he took over for Texas Tech coach Billy Gillispie after working on Gillipie’s UTEP staff. Gillispie is another close friend of KU’s Self. He also was a head coach at Arkansas-Fort Smith. Sadler on Tuesday morning told the Omaha World-Herald he indeed was in Lawrence and there could be discussion with Self about a job. Sadler told the paper it was unlikely anything in the way of any new job would happen before July. He said he has other situations to explore, including TV and the NBA.

where James struggled so badly when it mattered most. He admitted letting his team down, vowing he would have no regrets about his performance this time around. Unfortunately, the result was all too familiar to the Heat. James quickly answered after Oklahoma City tied the game for the first time at 60-all midway through the third, banking in a shot
he said. “I want to be a songwriter and producer first and foremost — artistry is just for fun.” In the music world, he’s known as Jay Midi. “It’s a stage name, something I had since I was a little kid, actually,” Wright said. “I kept it on low. It has nothing to do when I’m in my jersey playing basketball. It’s a whole different persona when I’m on the court.” Why Jay Midi? “I like Jay-Z (rap legend) a lot. The Midi? I have to get my nerd face on (to explain it). It means ‘Musical Instrumental Digital Interface.’ It had a ring to it. I like it,” Wright said. He also likes being back at KU. “I’m going back to school,” he said. “I need about 50 hours to graduate. I’ll take online courses, correspondence to earn my degree in the summer of 2013 probably.

Thunder James and Wade both were bent over, hands on knees, during one stoppage with about 7 minutes remaining. Durant kept pouring it on, racing down the court to throw down a fast-break dunk and later adding a three-pointer that pushed it to 87-81 with 6 1/2 minutes remaining. The Heat got within four points, but Durant hit two quick baskets and Westbrook added another for a 10-point lead with 3:35 to go. It’s been a rapid rise toward the top for the Thunder, who started 3-29 in 2008-09, their first season here after moving from Seattle. Fans were clearly embracing the finals’ arrival in Oklahoma City, where cars, buildings and even fans’ hair seemed to be painted some form or orange or blue. Fans standing until the Thunder’s first basket didn’t have to wait long, Durant knocking down a baseline jumper 70 seconds in. He made his first three shots, including two 3-pointers, but his teammates missed their first six attempts in falling into an early hole. Durant made sure they were fine at the end. Both superstars tried to downplay their individual matchup, Durant insisting it was about the team and James adamant that he didn’t care about the best player in the game argument. It was James’ supporting cast that stepped up bigger to start, the Heat hitting five of their six three-point attempts in jumping to a 29-22 lead after one quarter. Spoelstra kept Chris Bosh as a reserve, the role he has played since returning from a nine-game absence with a strained lower abdominal muscle. Smart decision, as Battier hit his first three three-point attempts in the opening minutes to spark Miami’s strong start. Durant took only one shot in the second quarter, and it wasn’t until 9 minutes had passed. By then, the Heat had built a lead as large as 13 points, keeping it in or near double digits most of the period before the Thunder sliced it to 54-47 at halftime. Seemingly every fan was wearing the blue shirts hung on their chairs before the game — an exception being rapper Lil Wayne, who caused a stir during the Western Conference finals when he posted on Twitter that the Thunder wouldn’t let him into their arena, with the team saying simply that he needed to buy tickets if he wanted to come. He did, he and his guest both wearing black. The sea of blue around the court looked like the scene last year in Dallas,

and powering in for a layup and a quick four-point lead. The Heat pushed the lead back to five but the Thunder kept coming, finally pulling ahead for the first time when Westbrook darted into the lane and was fouled while scoring with 16.4 seconds remaining, the free throw making it 74-73.

U.S. OPEN GOLF
Watson wary of Olympic SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Bubba Watson is a Masters champion. Yet this big hitter with an imaginative swing is wary of what awaits at the U.S. Open. So much so that he’s warning fans to beware of wild drives this week at The Olympic Club. “Hopefully I don’t hit too many people,” Watson said after playing 10 holes Tuesday morning on the tight, twisting fairways. “Hopefully they forgive me if I do.” Winning a major hasn’t changed Watson, the self-taught player who still tells it like it is. His unorthodox approach to golf and distance off the tee endears him to fans, who greeted him Tuesday with shouts of “champion Bubba” and “Master Watson.” While he obliged autograph seekers, and even shared laughs with a reporter between holes, he wasn’t laughing when asked about a demanding layout that he said could make top players look silly. “I don’t want to come out here and shoot 80,” he said. “As of right now, I don’t like it. There’s an 80 lurking. After four days of golf, if there’s not an 80, then I like it all right.” Watson has had extra time to prepare for Olympic. He missed the cut at the Memorial, and went to Scottsdale to practice. He arrived in California on Saturday night and played 18 holes Sunday, 10 Monday and 10 again Tuesday. After finishing Tuesday, he went right to the practice green, where he worked for 90 minutes. Watson, who entered the week ranked 99th on the PGA Tour in driving

BUBBA WATSON TOSSES A BALL DURING a practice round of the U.S. Open golf tournament Tuesday at The Olympic Club in San Francisco. accuracy, insisted he can win despite that. “Yes, I believe I can the way I hit it,” said Watson, who vowed to use driver on nine holes. “Obviously this week everybody is going to have trouble hitting fairways and out of the rough. I think with my length, with my socalled strength, I can hit irons out of the rough that people can’t hit as far. If I can just putt. It comes down to putting and chipping.” Watson, 33, is playing in his sixth U.S. Open but first as a major champion, having pulled off an astounding shot from the pine straw to win the
Masters in April. His best finish in a U.S. Open was 2007 when he tied for fifth at Oakmont at 9 over. “Oakmont was probably the toughest course I’ve ever seen, the way it was set up,” he said. Olympic may match it this week, or play even tougher. He’s not sure — he’s still trying to figure out how to play several holes. Watson was particularly critical of the par-3 No. 13, where the left side has been shaved so tight it’s possible to land on the green and still end up in the hazard. And he said he had to slice a 9-iron about 40 yards on No. 14 Tues-
day just to hit the green from the middle of the fairway. “It just doesn’t make sense,” Watson said. Even a guy leading the tour in driving distance can’t reach the 670-yard par-5 No. 16 in two. “You can’t reach that hole in two from the forward tee,” Watson said. “I hit driver, driver today and still had 60 yards from the middle of the fairway.” He predicted those who hit it in the rough won’t get there in three shots. “The other parts of the golf course are just tough,” he said, predicting 5-over-par may have a shot at winning. While Watson was uneasy about Olympic, he wasn’t fretting being paired with Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson the first two days, even if he called them “legends of the game” and predicted big galleries. “I’ve played with those guys before. Know them. Good friends. Obviously you step up your game. Intimidation, no,” Watson said. Woods has lauded past Open champs at Olympic as great shot-shapers, and put the other lefty up there “as the best in this generation of players.” Shaping shots is one thing, Watson said. Keeping balls in the fairway or on the green another at Olympic. Still, no matter what happens Watson wouldn’t trade where he is right now — a major winner and father of a baby boy. Both were life-changing events, and they happened within weeks of each other as he and wife Angie adopted Caleb on March 26.

KANSAS CITY’S ALEX GORDON CONNECTS for a firstinning home run off Milwaukee’s Zack Greinke. The Royals defeated the Brewers, 2-1, on Tuesday night in Kansas City, Mo.
The Royals picked up their starting shortstop, Alcides Escobar, along with outfielder Lorenzo Cain and minor league pitcher Jake Odorizzi in the deal. Yet many still wonder whether they were wrong to trade away one of their best homegrown pitchers.
CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1B
The victory snapped the Royals’ four-game losing streak. “We ran into one of the better pitchers in baseball, if not the best on any given night,” Butler said. “You can argue Mendoza out-pitched him.” Greinke was chosen by the Royals in the first round of the 2002 draft, and they stuck by him through the well-documented personal issues that forced him to leave the game for a while. He returned to become one of baseball’s best pitchers, going 16-8 with a 2.16 ERA in 2009 to win the American League Cy Young Award. He regressed only slightly the following year, and was eventually dealt to Milwaukee after the 2010 season.

PHIL MICKELSON LOOKS OVER A SHOT ON THE SEVENTH HOLE during a practice round for the U.S. Open golf tournament Tuesday at The Olympic Club in San Francisco.
Lefty pleased to be paired with Tiger “
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Phil Mickelson decided not to leave the driver at home for the U.S. Open this time. At Olympic Club this week, he might just leave it in the bag. “Well, I’m not going to take the driver out of my bag entirely like I tried at one Open,” Mickelson said Tuesday. “There are a couple of holes that you can hit driver, but very few.” For a player who never has won a U.S. Open, Lefty still hasn’t lost his sense of humor. The 41-year-old American was poking fun at himself for his infamous decision not to bring a driver to Torrey Pines in 2008. Olympic’s unleveled Lake Course is considered short — but with narrow fairways and small greens — by most U.S. Open standards, so perhaps Mickelson might get away with irons and hybrids all week. Then again, this is the one time of year that never has been kind to Mick-
First of all, I get excited to play with Tiger. I think we all do. He gets the best out of me. I think when it’s time to tee off on Thursday I’ll be ready to play.” — Professional golfer Phil Mickelson elson’s game — no matter where he is. The five-time runnerup for golf’s national championship has been on the wrong side of records at this major. Mickelson is paired with Tiger Woods and Masters champion Bubba Watson in the first two rounds beginning Thursday. It will be the first time Woods and Mickelson have been paired in the U.S. Open since the USGA grouped players off the world ranking in 2008. “It’s fabulous,” Mickelson said. “First of all, I get excited to play with Tiger, I love it. I think we all do. He gets the best out of me. I think when it’s time to tee off on Thursday I’ll be ready to play. “One of the issues I’ve
had this year (is) I’ve been a little mentally lethargic on Thursday and Friday. I won’t be this week. Second is the one player I’m most concerned about if I play my best golf that may have a chance to beat me is Tiger. And the fact that we are on the same wavelength, I’m always in favor of. Sometimes we’ll get a huge advantage in tee times, based on weather conditions or whatnot. If we’re in the same wavelength, neither of us will have a distinct advantage.” The two last played together in the final round this year at Pebble Beach, which just so happened to be Mickelson’s last victory. The rest of his season has been rather ordinary. That is, with one exception.
Mickelson played in the last group of the Masters and fell out of contention when he hit consecutive shots from the right side. The green jacket went to another lefty, Watson, a big hitter who shapes shots with the best of them — and, at times, the worst of them — on the PGA Tour. So standing alongside both Woods and Watson when the group tees off on No. 10 early Thursday morning should provide all the motivation Mickelson needs. “I think it helps me because this is a tournament where, if you look at my game from 20,000 feet, you’d say, ‘Well, that’s probably not the best setup for the way he likes to play,” Mickelson said. “And yet five times I’ve had opportunities, I’ve come close,” he said. “Could have, should have won a few of those. “And it gives me the belief that I can compete and be in contention on Sunday in this tournament.”

Ag research funding — and influence? — shifts to corporations “In our experience, there is no correlation between naming rights and university research,” Monsanto spokeswoman Sara Miller said. Another Monsanto spokeswoman, Kelli Powers, said the company “is proud of its contributions to land-grant universities and support of university agricultural research,” whether through naming rights or student scholarships.
By Alan Scher Zagier Associated Press
COLUMBIA, MO. — The gap between federal support for agricultural research at large public universities and private investment continues to grow — and the divide comes with increased threats to academic freedom and more instances of meddling in the lab, a new research report suggests. A recent study by Food and Water Watch, a Washington-based environmental group, shows that nearly one-quarter of the money spent on agricultural research at landgrant universities comes from corporations, trade associations and foundations, an all-time high. Financial support from the U.S. Department of Agriculture accounts for less than 15 percent, the lowest level in nearly two decades. The consumer advocacy group’s report is rife with what it calls examples of how corporate money “corrupts” the public research mission at land-grant schools, which were created by the Morrill Act of 1862. The law provided federal land for states to establish agriculture and engineering colleges. The examples range from a University of Georgia food safety program that allows industry groups to join an advisory board in exchange for annual $20,000 donations, to an Ohio State University professor whose research on genetically modified sunflowers was blocked by two seed companies after the initial results suggested the biotech sunflowers fostered the growth of weeds. The report, entitled “Public Research, Private Gain,” also explores the blurry lines created when universities and industry work hand-in-hand, such as when South Dakota State University sued farmers over wheat seed patents as part of a publicprivate coalition formed with a Monsanto Co. subsidiary. The Missouribased company is known for aggressive litigation against what it calls seed piracy. Kansas State University, Colorado State and Texas A&M have pursued similar lawsuits.

THE LIFE SCIENCE BUSINESS INCUBATOR on the University of Missouri Campus in Columbia is shown in this June 4, 2012, photo. Monsanto plays a prominent role on the Missouri campus, where science students attend lectures in Monsanto Auditorium and professors spin their university research off into private companies at the Monsanto Place “Life Science Business Incubator,” which was built with the help of a $2 million corporate grant. Such alliances are a far cry from land-grant universities’ historic role in promoting public knowledge and freely sharing the fruits of their research, said Patty Lovera, Food and Water Watch’s assistant director. The report notes that publicly funded university research led to the domestication of blueberries, early varieties of high-yield hybrid corn and common tools to fight soil erosion. “There’s a real sense in agriculture of what these schools used to be,” Lovera said. “There was much more trust in what they put out. This is not the same research system of decades ago, and we’re acting like it is.”
Influence not bought Deans at several agricultural schools singled out for criticism in the report maintained that while corporate support is vital, it’s unlikely to sway research results or even influence what research gets done. “We’re kind of caught between a rock and a hard place,” said Thomas Payne, dean of the College of Agriculture, Food and Natural Resources at the University of Missouri. “In order for research to continue, we have to have support from a variety of sources.” Payne said industry support accounts for just 5 percent of the agricultural research budget at Missouri — though the Food and Water Watch report notes that the percentages were significantly
higher in the university’s plant sciences department (42 percent from 2007 to 2010) and its College of Veterinary Medicine (63 percent from 2004 to 2010). Monsanto plays a prominent role on the Missouri campus, where science students attend lectures in Monsanto Auditorium — built in part with a $950,000 grant from the St. Louis company — and professors spin their university research off into private companies at the Monsanto Place “life sciences business incubator,” which was built with the help of a $2 million corporate grant. The company and others in food and agriculture production have given substantial sums to other universities as well. There’s a $1 million Monsanto Student Services Wing at Iowa State University’s College of Agriculture and Life Sciences, and a $250,000 endowed Monsanto chair in agricultural communications at the University of Illinois. Cargill Inc. donated $10 million more than a decade ago for naming rights on a plant genomics building at the University of Minnesota, while two sensory labs at Purdue carry the imprimaturs of the Kroger Co. and ConAgra Foods Inc. While the Food and Water Watch report suggests spending millions of dollars on building naming rights may also buy access to key decision makers, the donors and university officials say that’s not true.
Lemon, herbs perfect fit for chicken By Susan M. Selasky The Detroit Free Press
Readers often call me, looking for ideas to feed a crowd or unexpected guests. One of my standards is Chicken with Lemon and Herbs. I like it because it’s super easy. Take chicken thighs, brine them if you like and bake with lemon and herbs. That’s it. Add a mixed vegetable and salad, and it’s a complete meal. This dish also is relatively inexpensive to make for a crowd. For quick cooking, remove the bones. Allow extra baking time if you leave the bones in. Also, leave the skin on the chicken. It makes the meat more flavorful, and it gives your guests the option of removing it or not. Beyond the ease of making it, this dish has great flavor. You can’t go wrong with lemons and fresh herbs — they’re a natural match. This recipe calls for thyme and rosemary, but you can use other herbs, such as parsley or basil. If using rosemary, don’t worry that it will be too strong. It won’t be. And roasting the lemons mellows out the tartness.
Chicken With Lemon And Herbs Makes: 24 pieces / Preparation time: 20 minutes (plus optional brining time) / Total time: 1 hour, 20 minutes For brine (optional)
2 gallons water 1 1/2 cups kosher salt, plus additional for rub for chicken 1/2 cup sugar 24 boneless chicken thighs or small chicken breasts, with skin For chicken 4 large cloves garlic, peeled and minced, with a large pinch of kosher salt 1/4 cup olive oil 4 large lemons, each cut into six 1/4 -inch rounds 1 small bunch fresh rosemary, cut into 24 two-inch pieces 1 small bunch fresh thyme, cut into 24 two-inch pieces Shallots, cut into 1/4-inch slices (for each lemon slice) Italian seasoning to taste Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste For sauce 1 cup chicken broth 1/2 cup sherry If desired, make a brine by mixing water with salt and sugar, stirring to dissolve. Place chicken in brine and refrigerate at least 3 hours. Remove chicken and rinse very well under cold water. If not brining, begin by mashing the garlic in a small bowl with about 1/2 teaspoon of kosher salt to create a coarse paste. Add olive oil slowly in drops while pounding and grinding the paste, continuing until the mixture is thick, creamy and emulsified. Put chicken in a bowl. Rub the garlic mixture all over the chicken, including under the skin. Cover and
refrigerate at least 2 hours or overnight. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. On the bottoms of two shallow roasting pans or a baking sheet with sides, arrange lemon slices in one layer. Top each slice with a piece of rosemary, thyme and shallot slice. Set chicken breasts or thighs — skin side up — on lemon slices and sprinkle them generously with Italian seasoning, salt and pepper. Bake until the skin is golden and juices are clear, about 40 to 50 minutes. Transfer chicken, with herbs, shallots and lemon slices underneath, to a plate. Cover loosely with foil. To make the pan sauce, tilt the pans to pool the juices in one corner. Spoon off the fat that rises to the top. Set the pans over medium heat; if the pan isn’t flameproof, pour the juices into a small skillet. Add 1 cup chicken broth and 1/2 cup sherry (or wine or more broth) to the pans. Warm over medium-high heat and bring to a boil, scraping up any brown bits on the bottom of the pan. Boil the liquid until it is reduced to a sauce consistency. Season sauce with salt and pepper to taste. Drizzle the sauce around, not on, the chicken so the skin stays crisp.

Safer food is goal Michael Doyle, a professor of food microbiology at Georgia and director of its Center for Food Safety, rejected the notion that companies such as Cargill, ConAgra and the Coca-Cola Co. unduly influence the center’s research agenda when they buy seats on the Board of Advisors. “Industry does not tell
me how to spend that money,” he said, noting that corporate support accounts for just 10 percent of the program’s research budget. “But I ask the industry, ‘What are the areas you are interested in?’” Those interests range from pathogen control to insider access to scientists and regulators from the Atlanta-based Centers for Disease Control. Corporate partners are promised “special consideration” by Center for Food Safety faculty members, and the center’s website reassures industry members that a prying press isn’t allowed to attend those discussions. “What we’re trying to do is come up with practical ways the industry can make our food safer,” Doyle added. “It’s not specific to a company ... Sometimes the research doesn’t work out the way the industry wants. We don’t hold back.”
With the current fiveyear farm bill set to expire at the end of September, Food and Water Watch wants Congress to boost the federal investment in campus agricultural research, with more resources steered toward sustainable methods, organic farming and reduced use of pesticides. The group also is calling for land-grant universities to more fully disclose gifts by private donors and wants agricultural research journals to adopt more stringent conflictof-interest rules, similar to the recent crackdown by medical journals. “This is a conversation that needs to be had about how we support this research,” Lovera said. “There are a lot of consequences of land grant-funding of industry research that haven’t been examined.”

New wine-tasting event features Kansas products By Sara Shepherd firstname.lastname@example.org
If you’re heading to the new wine-tasting event Saturday in De Soto, you won’t find wines that taste exactly like your favorite Napa Valley cabernet or Argentinian malbec. But organizers say that isn’t a bad thing. The event, called Winesong at Riverfest, will feature only Kansas wines — with 14, or more than half, of the state’s 23 vineyards expected to be represented. Instead of the typical liquor-store best-sellers, you’ll find grape varietals such as Seyval, Vignole, Chambourcin, Cynthiana and Concord. “Don’t try and compare it, they’re not the same,” said Michelle Meyer, who, along with her father, Les Meyer, owns Basehor’s Holy-Field Vineyard and Winery. “You can’t compare apples to oranges. We are growing different kinds of grapes in this region.” Do expect quality, though, Meyer said. Most Kansas vineyards grow French-hybrid grapes, and a number of the represented wineries, including hers, have won national awards for their products. Tony Kugler, who owns Kugler’s Vineyard in rural Lawrence, earned a bronze medal at the National Norton Wine Festival in St. Louis for his Cynthiana a few years ago. Being small can be an advantage when it comes to making wine, Kugler said. It’s easier to monitor and control the qualities that make good wine, such as sugar and pH levels. Winesong at Riverfest attendees will be able to try multiple wineries’ versions of the same varietal, which can be a way to narrow your focus at an event that includes too many choices to try in a day. And unlike many mainstream tasting events where large wineries send representatives across the country, the people filling your glass during Winesong at Riverfest may well be the people who grew

Somerset Ridge is one of the vineyards that will be featured at Winesong at Riverfest this Saturday in De Soto. the grapes and created the wine themselves. “You will learn a lot, especially if you’ve never patronized or visited regional wineries,” Meyer said. “They (winemakers) want you to be as excited about it as we all are.” The city of De Soto is organizing the event, with profits going to the De Soto Rotary Club. City Administrator Patrick Guilfoyle, himself a wine-lover, said he envisioned the event to attract outsiders to De Soto’s relatively new Riverfest Park — a regional park overlooking the Kansas River that features, among other things, a natural amphitheater for concerts — and to help boost business for Kansas wineries. A new law should make the event more worth winemakers’ time, too, Guilfoyle said. As he laid plans for Winesong at Riv-
erfest, Guilfoyle worked with area legislators to pass a new law allowing the wineries to sell wine by the bottle at the event and future events like it. Until now, they might travel hundreds of miles for such an event with no way to sell any wine to festival-goers. Guilfoyle said he hoped the event would help more people share his appreciation of Kansas wine, which he began to hone a few years ago after his first visit to a Kansas winery. “I have to admit, I went into the winery with a little bit of an ignorant, snobby attitude,” he said. “I was blown away by what I experienced.” Guilfoyle said comparing mainstream wines to Kansas wines is kind of like comparing cola to Dr Pepper. “It’s different, but it is

Burger King bets on bacon sundae NEW YORK (AP) — Burger King wants to lure customers this summer with a barbecue party — and a bacon sundae. The world’s second biggest hamburger chain on Thursday is launching several pork, beef and chicken sandwiches as limited time offers. And for a sweet ending, the company is also offering a bacon sundae — vanilla soft serve with fudge, caramel, bacon crumbles and a piece of bacon — that started in Nashville, Tenn. earlier this year. The salty-sweet dessert clocks in at 510 calories, 18 grams of fat and 61 grams of sugar. The limited-time items are Burger King’s latest push to win back customers with a revived menu and reverse sliding market share, an effort that started soon after the company was taken private by the private equity firm 3G Capital in late 2010. Earlier this year, Burger King launched its biggestever menu expansion including fruit smoothies, snack wraps and new salads.
Also, Alvarez suggested, instead of clear tequila, choose reposado for margaritas — it’s oak barrel-aged, resulting in a golden color and smoother, richer flavor. Mariscos, 4821 W. Sixth St., shared one of their signature “skinny” cocktails — the Colada Lite. Bar manager Lisa Wall described the drink, in which cream is optional, as a fresh, lighter take on a summertime favorite. Plus, she said, you don’t even need a blender. “This is just a twist on a classic piña colada that will be very easy to make at home, and it’s under 100 calories,” she said, noting that’s even with a splash of half-and-half if you prefer your coladas creamy. Cheers to summertime, and the drinks that come with it.

“whack” the pit — just get the blade into the pit and pull — the pit should come right out. Carefully remove (I use an oven mitt) the pit from the knife and discard. Then slice the avocado while it’s still inside the shell into a grid, and use a large spoon to scoop it out. Done. Do you know how to cut up a fresh pineapple? The Pioneer Woman blog has a good tutorial at ljw.bz/ L36Tdz. Don’t be afraid to cut deeply enough to remove all of the outside. No one likes fresh pineapple with brown rind bits still attached to it. Trust me on this. Get fresh pineapple. The canned stuff doesn’t even come close. My two-yearold agrees with me: fresh pineapple is nature’s candy. Chop up your cilantro (remove the stems — they’re icky) and dice up your onion, and toss it all in the dish with the spices. Add a bit of olive oil (the remaining 1/2 tablespoon) and the lime zest and juice. Stir it up, and voila. This thing is full of bright flavors and is a major crowd-pleaser. Summer in a bowl. Goes great with margaritas. Not that I know anything about that. You want to make this just before you serve it, because the avocados, as we all know, have a tendency to get not-so-attractive if they’re left too long. The lime juice helps (and a firm covering with plastic wrap), but for best results, make and serve immediately. Get yours fast, because I promise it will be gone in a flash.

A BLUEBERRY GIN RICKEY can be a cool summertime patio sipper that uses fruit for this time of year.
It’s summertime, which means it’s also patio-drinking time. This week, we asked a handful of Lawrence bartenders to concoct a few cold libations perfect for outdoor summer sipping. Of course, fresh fruit was the key ingredient of choice. At Pachamama’s, 800 N.H., manager Kenny Pingleton said staffers took advantage of in-season berries to create the Blueberry Gin Rickey, a light, crisp drink with just the right hint of blueberry flavor.
Bartender Paige Ensminger said she was looking for something simple, without too many ingredients. The Blueberry Gin Rickey, she said, is a “classic cocktail with a little twist.” Spiked Lemonade came from bartender Lindsay White at Esquina, 801 Mass. The drink not only tastes good, it looks especially pretty in a clear glass or a pitcher, thanks to the addition of fresh fruit and herbs. Any fruit you have on hand would work, White said. You could even switch it up by adding a splash of fruit juice or flavored vodka. “It could change every time,” she said.
“It turns a regular lemonade into a patio drink.” Tortas Jalisco, 534 Frontier Road, turned out the Guavarita. Restaurant owner Angel Alvarez lived in Jalisco, Mexico, until he was 17. There, he said, he remembers picking and eating guavas straight from the trees. He said the juicy, pink-fleshed fruit is the perfect addition to make a traditional margarita into something new, and perfect for the patio. “Guava is one of our favorite fruits,” Alvarez said.

a blog by Megan Stuke some baby screw it all up for me. Of course, it is more important than ever that I eat healthy foods and plenty of them, so I’m still going to be very mindful of my choices. This does not mean that chips and Ro-tel dip are going back into regular rotation. But, I do get to eat more. I get to loosen the reins a little on my diet. Out goes the alcohol, in comes the FOOD.
This summer, I’ve been really into shrimp, avocados and pineapple. I’m putting them in everything. Don’t be surprised if you see several recipes in coming weeks all featuring those three main components. And because all three are supergood for me (avocado and shrimp, of course, in proper moderation and portion), I’ll be continuing the trend until I am sick to death of the combination. I made this little salad for Pints for Pets, a fundraiser for the Humane Society that some friends of mine throw every May.

TNT offers ‘Dallas’ 2.0 Is America ready for a new “Dallas” (8 p.m., TNT)? Does it want one? The original debuted in 1978 and all but defined an era of prime-time soap operas that featured over-the-top stories of family betrayal and celebrated conspicuous wealth. And with its “Who Shot J.R.?” story line, “Dallas” went into the TV record books for having one of the most anticipated cliffhanger episodes in network TV history. At the time, it was the most watched episode of any show, winning a whopping 76 percent of the TV audience in the spring of 1980. But that, as they say, was a long time ago. Proof that remakes can be sad affairs arrives early in this new “Dallas.” Stars and characters from the old series appear, if only to pass the torch to the next generation of troublemakers. Bobby Ewing (Patrick Duffy) gets a cancer diagnosis. J.R. Ewing (Larry Hagman) sits silently in a wheelchair in a nursing home, unresponsive and depressed. Maybe he’s bummed that his son, John Ross Ewing III (Josh Henderson), is such a meager chip off the old block. He’s first seen operating an oil rig on the Southfork Ranch. (As if nobody would notice.) John Ross seems more impulsive than smart. Good thing he’s got Elena Ramos (Jordana Brewster) around to help. She’s the daughter of a Southfork maid and the former fiancee of John Ross’ cousin and rival, Christopher Ewing (Jesse Metcalfe), Bobby’s adopted son. Elena’s also a geological genius, having taught the aggressive John Ross that there could be “billions” of gallons of oil underneath the family compound. Isn’t that convenient? The first “Dallas” was hardly a novel idea. In many ways it was a prime-time version of a daytime soap, lifting story lines from 1950s movies such as “Giant” and “Written on the Wind.” Bobby and J.R. were originals, in an obvious, cheesy way. Let them (and “Dallas” viewers) live with their memories. This new version is not so much terrible as forgettable.

JACQUELINE BIGAR’S STARS
For Wednesday, June 13: This year you might rely more on your creativity than you normally do. The results will be excellent, though you often might be challenged by a partner or loved one. If you are single, you meet people with ease, but often discover that they are difficult, withdrawn or depressed. If you are attached, avoid nitpicking over money with a partner. 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) A serious edge to your communication style could color an important relationship. Consider moving in a new direction, which would allow more of your ingenuity and humor to emerge. Tonight: All smiles. Taurus (April 20-May 20) You might want to play a passive or laid-back role in what is happening. You also might not have much of a choice, considering your obligations and energy level. Tonight: Check that your budget is in order. Gemini (May 21-June 20) Keep your long-term goals in mind. You could be concerned by a loved one and his or her attitude. Tonight: Chat away. Cancer (June 21-July 22) You often are sought out to handle difficult situations or to give advice. Such is the case today, but you also are juggling your own needs. Tonight: Indulge yourself for a change. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) You could opt to detach from what is occurring at the moment, and you might be a lot happier as a result. Conversations could

get to eat where I like. I think we should rotate choosing restaurants so we each get a turn to select the one we want. What do you think is fair? — California Dear California: Taking turns is fair, but it will only work if the others agree. So, by all means, ask them. But as uncomfortable as you are indoors, you can put on a sweater or jacket to stay warm. Those who have a problem with heat, wind or bugs can do nothing about it. If your golfing buddies prefer not to change the current set-up, we recommend you save your outdoor dining for other occasions.

be unduly heavy or serious. Tonight: Get together with friends. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Deal with a partner directly. Hopefully this person can identify what is causing a sense of tension or concern with your budget. Tonight: Out to dinner with a loved one. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) You might feel overwhelmed. Your best bet is to just energize and get done what you must. Tonight: Stay sensitive to a loved one. Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) Remain even when dealing with an associate.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) Much is happening around you. Choose your battles wisely. Tonight: Already in weekend mode. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) You are well-grounded on the basics of life, and know how to encourage others. Someone around you could feel quite dejected, but you’ll help this person get through it. Tonight: A must event. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) Keep communication flowing. News or a call from a friend at a distance might put you off. Tonight: Become a creature of the night. Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) Your ability to move past a restriction is admirable, but a partner keeps blocking the path. Detach as much as you can to gain understanding. Tonight: Dinner for two. — The astrological forecast should be read for entertainment only.

Dear Annie: I had several surgeries during the past year and needed help from friends during my recovery. They have been generous with their time, caring for me and my three boys so my husband could work. They even helped with meals and chores. I have paid them in cash and gifts to show my gratitude. The problem is, I caught two of my friends stealing my pain medications. The first incident was so blatant that I immediately ended our relationship. I then caught the second friend skimming a few pills every visit. There is no mistake. After the first incident, I began keeping track, and it was clear that two pills were missing every time this particular friend visited. I know if I confronted him, he would deny it or blame someone else, so I haven’t bothered.
