Funding new police facility and staffing could require sales AND property tax increases
By Scott Rothschild email@example.com
TOPEKA — Kansas University would become pricier and more particular under proposals before the Kansas Board of Regents. During its monthly meeting starting Wednesday, the board will take up tuition increase requests from the six regents universities and a plan by KU to put in place tougher admission standards.
“I think we will have to start looking at what type of services in the department we want to say no to in the future, if we aren’t able to add resources.” — City Manager David Corliss
“The need is there regardless of what we end up doing. The need isn’t going to go away just because we wait.” — City Commissioner Hugh Carter
City could also decide on other financing options

City budget officials have prepared a projection that shows it could take both a sales tax and property tax increase to fund a list of Lawrence Police Department facility and staffing needs that have grown to $42 million. Now, we’ll see if the idea sets off any red lights and sirens with city commissioners who are working to put together a 2013 city budget. “I sure would like to see us do this in a way that is less impactful to the taxpayers rather than doing this all at once,” Mayor Bob Schumm said. But last month city commissioners asked staff members to produce a report that estimated how much the Police Department would need to meet its most pressing facility and staffing needs. A new report by City Hall budget officials does that, and presents at least one funding scenario. Here’s a look:
A previously discussed police headquarters building is still anticipated to cost about $30 million, but now staff members have included an additional $12 million Please see POLICE, page 2A

Kansas University students who live and eat on campus will be seeing some upgrades to the menu in the coming years. As Gertrude Sellards Pearson Hall reopens in the fall after a $13.1 million renovation, it will have a revamped food service area with new dining options. The dining area was designed with the assistance of a food service consultant and follows a planned renovation for Mrs. E’s, the larger dining facility in Lewis Hall that serves KU’s Daisy Hill residence halls. Sheryl Kidwell, KU Dining Services’ assistant director for residential dining, said the newly named North College Cafe would be open to all students with a dining plan.

Under that compact, incoming KU freshmen who are Kansas residents would pay an additional 4.9 percent KANSAS in tuition and fees, bringing UNIVERSITY the cost of a 15 credit hour semester to $4,839. Tuition and fees for nonresident freshmen would increase by 5 percent, to $11,874. Transfer students and students who stay longer than four years pay a different standard tuition rate. That rate, combined with fees, is also proposed to increase by 4.9 percent for residents to $4,444, and 6.7 percent

to add 46 positions to the city’s police force over the next four years.
To pay for the $42 million price tag, the city report says a new 1 percent sales tax may be needed. The tax, which would require voter approval, would sunset after it collects about $32 million. City officials estimate the tax would be in place for about 14 months.
In addition to the sales tax, a property tax rate increase of nearly five mills would need to be implemented to pay for the additional police officers. The current scenario pegs the increase at 4.7 mills and estimates it could be phased in over a fouryear period. A mill is $1 in property tax for every $1,000 in assessed valua-
tion. A 4.7 mill increase on a $200,000 house would amount to an extra $108 a year in property taxes. City commissioners are scheduled to hear more details about funding issues related to the possible project at an afternoon study session today. But commissioners are not scheduled to take any action today to move the project forward. “It took us a lot of years to get in this position in terms of not keeping up with Police Department needs,” Schumm said. “To do this all at once may be difficult for the public to handle. This is going to need a lot of study and discussion.” But City Commissioner Hugh Carter said he doesn’t want the city to put off the issue. He brought up the need for more resources devoted to the Police Department nearly two years ago when he began cam-

GSP consisted mostly of a self-service buffet in the dining room, Kidwell said. Before the renovations, it was open only to residents of GSP and Corbin halls, which share a residential complex at 500 W. 11th St. The new area will pick up on campus dining trends across the country, featuring cook-to-order setups, where students can choose their own ingredients at stations featuring Italian food, ramen noodles and a pizza oven. “Everything in there is brand new, ceiling to floor,” Kidwell said. The new renovations were paid for by KU Dining Services and KU’s Department of Student Housing, which are both funded by fees collected from students. The Mrs. E’s renovations start next summer, and while plans are still being formed, the Kansas Board of Regents has approved the renovation for a cost of just under $3 million, Kidwell said. The same food service consultant will participate in the planning for those renovations. One idea for Mrs. E’s involves adding a barbecue smoker. “That’s one thing we don’t offer a lot of,” Kidwell said, even though the dining areas do offer the occasional pulled pork sandwich or other barbecue item. “We thought of it as the whole idea of doing barbecue right.” Addison Polk, a senior from Wichita, lived in Corbin three years ago and remembered the food as being “decent for cafeteria food,” though she and her friends would occasionally go to Mrs. E’s across campus for a better selection. “More healthier options,” she said when asked if she would recommend any improvements to the food. “I feel like the healthier options weren’t as preferable, so it was easy to eat the pizza or a hamburger.” — Higher education reporter Andy Hyland can be reached at 832-6388.

State wheat harvest 80 percent finished WICHITA — Kansas farmers have now cut all but 20 percent of the state’s winter wheat crop, with most of the fields left to be harvested located in western Kansas. Kansas Agricultural Statistics Service reported Monday in its weekly update that the harvest was more than two weeks ahead of last year. Usually just 7 percent of the Kansas crop is cut by this time in the year. Northwest Kansas had cut only a quarter of its wheat acreage as of Sunday, but wheat harvest across most of the state was better than 90 percent finished.

One option could include the city taking out more traditional bonds to finance the facility over a 20-year period.

KUMC Acrobats entertain at Liberty Hall bus route could fall victim to budget By Andy Hyland firstname.lastname@example.org
Proposed public transportation cuts in Johnson County would shut down the county’s only route that serves Kansas University Medical Center. Alice Amrein, director of transportation for Johnson County, said budgetary constraints were causing The JO bus service to look at eliminating eight routes and modifying service for nine others. One of the routes proposed for elimination runs from 107th Street and Nall Avenue in Overland Park to 10th and Locust streets in downtown Kansas City, Mo. That route serves about 11,000 rides a year and includes a stop at KUMC. While it is The JO’s only bus route that serves KUMC, Amrein said the campus is served by other area transportation routes in Kansas City, Kan. “It’s not an ideal situation for us,” she said. The cuts are not final, and the public can comment on the proposed changes by sending email to email@example.com, by sending mail to Johnson County Transit, 1701 W. 56 Highway, Olathe KS 66061, or by leaving a phone message at 913-715-8255. Public hearings are scheduled from 6:30 a.m. to 8:30 a.m. on July 9 and from 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. on July 11 at the Sylvester Powell Community Center, 6200 Martway St., in Mission. Amrein said the comments are taken seriously. “We do have to do some service elimination, but this process gives us some idea about how we might do something different,” she said.

One man stands on another’s shoulders. On his shoulders stands a third man, his arms stretched high, reaching for the rafters of the stage at Liberty Hall. The man on the bottom tier dances around, the other two keeping their balance on one another. But then — in an instant — there appears to be an elongated, angular fall from the top. The gasp is audible from the crowd, filled with young and old alike. With not even a second to spare, the top two men go into a mid-air roll, landing on the stage floor on their feet. The audience, now, claps with joy. A 20-person acrobat troupe from China, called
simply the Fabulous Chinese Acrobats, came through Lawrence on Monday night in a benefit for the Lawrence Community Shelter. About 250 people came to the show. Marcelino Chavez, 9, said that the event was a lot of fun when it came through last year and that he was particularly excited this time around for the spinning plates. A.J. Chavez, 7, said his favorite part to see was the juggling.

Law enforcement officers say they continue to see prescription drugs as a valuable commodity in the criminal world. “It’s a growing problem. It’s the biggest growing problem,” said Tonganoxie Police Chief Jeff Brandau, a former Kansas Bureau of Investigation administrator. The abuse of certain medications can also result in serious injury or death. In a 2010 Lawrence case, 26-year-old Jack O’Bryon was found dead at home after a nighttime party. According to the autopsy, Douglas County Coroner Dr. Erik Mitchell detected fentanyl, an extremely powerful opioid analgesic used to treat severe pain, in O’Bryon’s system in a range where “deaths are expected in persons with inadequate accommodation to the central nervous system depressive effects of the drug.” Mitchell listed fentanyl toxicity as Please see FENTANYL, page 4A

as he approached a stop sign, but his truck’s brakes failed. Powell said the brake pedal was “mushy” and he was unable to stop at the intersection while headed west on North 1000 Road. His semitrailer hauling dry concrete mix collided with a northbound semitrailer driven by David L. Guenther, 60, of rural Baldwin City. Powell, who wore a lap belt, was not injured, but Guenther, who did not wear a seat belt, was ejected through the windshield of his truck, which was hauling farm supplies. Guenther was taken to Kansas University Hospital in Kansas City, Kan., where he was released last week, said Jill Chadwick, a KU Hospital spokeswoman. The crash occurred about 3 p.m. in the intersection near a major construction zone about two miles south of Lawrence.

It’s very potent, and it works well,” Parker said of fentanyl, which is often used on cancer patients. “But like other potent drugs, it’s a dangerous drug. When it’s administered in doses that are too high, people can literally stop breathing.” Brandau said another key tool would be how extensively doctors when writing outpatient prescriptions screen patients to check for past abuse of medications or illegal drugs.

Michael Hu is an interpreter and driver for the acrobats, and said they appreciated the experience of the tour, which has traveled throughout the country. “We get to learn another culture, get to taste different food and meet people at over 300 schools,” Hu said. “It’s a once- or twicein-a-lifetime opportunity.” — Reporter Alex Garrison can be reached at 832-7261.

Funeral held for Bramlage family
BRIEFLY Trial under way in child sex case Douglas County prosecutors in a Eudora sex crime case plan to show jurors video of the suspect’s interview with police that includes statements he might not have had control of his mental capacities during the alleged acts. Prosecutors accuse the 27-year-old man of raping and molesting a 5-year-old girl over a period from Aug. 1, 2010, to May 31, 2011. He faces one count of child rape and two counts of aggravated criminal sodomy. Attorneys spent most of Monday selecting the jury before chief assistant district attorney Amy McGowan gave her opening statement. McGowan said last July the suspect told Eudora police it was possible he could have molested the girl but said he did not remember it. “Other than someone making her full of drugs and making her think it was me, my only other option was to think it was myself, not really there. I don’t know how to explain it,” the man said, according to a Power Point presentation McGowan showed to jurors. A family member had called police after the girl had made allegations against the man. McGowan said the girl had recanted the allegations in 2010. The prosecutor said a child abuse investigator who interviewed the girl is expected to testify.

Admission standards KU also will be asking the regents for the green light on increasing the school’s admission standards. If new regulations supporting the request are approved by December, then KU will start using the new standards in August 2016. KU officials have said the goal is to raise the profile of the university by getting better students who have a greater chance of being successful at KU and then staying in Kansas to pursue their careers. Currently, admission criteria are the same for all six regents universities. A Kansas high school graduate can be admitted if he or she:
Has an ACT score of at least 21 or SAT score of at least 980 or
Ranks in the top onethird of the high school class or
Has a 2.0 GPA on a 4.0 scale in the Kansas Qualified Precollege Admissions curriculum. Under the proposed standards, to be automatically admitted to KU, graduating high school students would have to complete the pre-college curriculum with a GPA of 2.5 or higher, along with one of the following:

Students who don’t meet the criteria will have their applications reviewed by a committee that will look at numerous considerations, including whether the applying student would be a first generation college student, or is the child or grandchild of KU graduates, and has the potential to succeed academically. Approximately 65 percent of the most recent class at KU would have cleared the proposed standards and been admitted, according to Jack Martin, a spokesman for KU. He said the remaining 35 percent would have had their applications reviewed by the admissions committee and a majority of those would have been admitted. Martin added, “ … and the plan is to use that application review process to link up students with first-year experiences and academic services that will help them be successful.” KU also wants to set the deadline at Feb. 1 for applications for automatic admission. Research shows that students who apply by Feb. 1 have a better chance of succeeding, and this will also allow the admissions committee to examine later applications more thoroughly, the school said.

Over the long term, the task force says Kansas needs to establish a Kansas dental school.

KU also is seeking a recurring annual appropriation of $2.5 million to support a Kansas Institute for Translatational Chemical Biology to help in drug discovery efforts.

The National Transportation Safety Board is investigating the crash, which officials said left wreckage scattered over a wide area. The deaths stunned people in Junction City, a town of about 23,000 where Rebecca Bramlage served on the school board and the Bramlages were known for their generous and cheerful support of public education and community activities. “We think about the love they shared, the energizing presence that they always had,” the Rev. Al Brungardt, pastor of St. Francis Xavier, told the assembly Monday. Brungardt shared a letter he received from Roxanne right after her first Communion last month. “Dear Father Al,” the girl wrote, “I liked first Communion but the chips
taste like cardboard. The wine was okay but not my favorite.” Outside the school Monday, residents held up handmade signs reading “R.I.P Bramlage family” and “Signs of Community.” Kris Williston said she never met the Bramlages, but her son benefited from a scholarship they funded. She and her son wanted to come out and express their thanks, she said. Ron and Rebecca Bramlage were Kansas State graduates and active members of its Alumni Association, President’s Club and other groups. Ron Bramlage had ties to the Lawrence area, attending Lawrence High School in the mid-1980s. His stepfather, the late John Wertzberger, was an orthopedic surgeon at several area hospitals and worked for the Kansas University athletic department as a team physician. Wertzberger’s brother, Ken, still lives in Lawrence.

Obama, Putin find commonalities on Syria By Anne Gearan Associated Press
LOS CABOS, MEXICO — President Barack Obama and Russian President Vladimir Putin agreed Monday that Syrians should choose their own next government, marking a subtle shift for both the United States and Russia as they confront the prospect that Russia’s main ally in the Mideast could slide into civil war. Sharing pledges of common ground, yet hardly much eye contact or obvious kinship in front of reporters, Obama and Putin met for the first time since the Russian leader returned to the presidency last month. Obama spoke at greater length, emphasizing several areas of cooperation between the onetime Cold War enemies, but the unending bloodshed in Syria hung over the talks. The two leaders “agreed that we need to see a cessation of the violence, that a political process has to be created to prevent civil war and the kind of horrific events that we’ve seen over the last several weeks,” Obama said. Putin, seated next to Obama following the private meeting, said: “We’ve been able to find many commonalities” on Syria. But he offered no specifics on what those were, and it was unclear how much the closed two-hour talk did to close strategic gaps about how to end the violence. Russia has refused to call for the ouster of Syrian President Bashar Assad, an ally, and neither leader mentioned him by name Monday. In a departure from previous statements, Obama called for a “political pro-
BRIEFLY Nominee withdraws bid for Iraq envoy WASHINGTON — The Obama administration’s pick to be the next ambassador to Iraq withdrew from consideration Monday as Senate Republicans suggested his confirmation was endangered because of his behavior and judgment while working at the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad in 2008. Brett McGurk’s nomination, which was scheduled for a vote today by the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, became endangered after the release on the Internet of sometimes racy emails he sent to journalist Gina Chon while he was married and was negotiating a security agreement with the Iraqi government during President George W. Bush’s administration. The emails indicated McGurk had an intimate relationship with Chon. McGurk has since married Chon, who resigned from The Wall Street Journal last week after acknowledging that she violated in-house rules by showing McGurk unpublished stories.
At least 189 homes destroyed in wildfire LOVELAND, COLO. — Firefighters faced dangerous conditions across much of the Rocky Mountain region Monday, as they toiled in hot, dry weather to battle a wildfire that has charred nearly 91 square miles in northern Colorado. Authorities said they determined eight more homes have burned in the fire near Fort Collins. The blaze started June 9 and now has destroyed at least 189 homes — the most in the state’s history. Crews continue to cut and dig lines around the flames, but containment has stayed at 45 percent since Saturday. Other wildfires were burning in warm, arid weather from Wyoming to Arizona to Southern California, where a blaze that prompted the evacuation of at least 150 homes was 30 percent contained Monday.
cess,” that would end horrific violence in Syria, but he did not say Assad must go. Obama’s careful language appeared designed to give the Russian some elbow room. In other settings, he and other White House officials have been forceful in insisting that Assad must step aside. The United States and Russia share a goal of a “political transition to a democratic, pluralistic political system that would be implemented by the Syrians themselves,” a joint statement issued on the sidelines of the Group of 20 economic summit said.

BUSINESS AT A GLANCE Europe’s relief from Greek vote likely fleeting ATHENS, GREECE — Greece’s election result has eased fears of imminent financial disaster for Europe, but the continent’s leaders are still searching for a way to contain a debt crisis that threatens the global economy. A narrow victory for the New Democracy party in Greece means that the country is more likely to stick to the harsh austerity terms of its $300 billion bailout and not face a chaotic exit from the euro in the very near future — an event many fear would destabilize Europe and send shockwaves through the world. The country’s economy is still in a very vulnerable state, however. It is in a fifth
straight year of recession and could easily deteriorate to a point where a default and euro exit are inevitable. Europe is struggling to put out several fires, not just the one in Greece. Heavily indebted Spain and Italy saw their borrowing costs rise Monday, increasing pressure on their government finances and keeping alive fears that another big bailout might be needed. That would considerably strain the eurozone’s ability to protect its members and keep the currency union together. “The crisis is far from over,” Commerzbank analyst Christoph Weil said in a note to investors. “A sovereign default by Greece
and the country’s exit from the monetary union have probably been avoided for the time being. “ The eurozone’s challenges run deep. The economy is expected to shrink this year, with the so-called peripheral countries like Greece and Spain in painful recession. Many of its banks remain on life support, propped up by emergency credit from the European Central Bank. Europe is a substantial trading partner with the rest of the world. If it falls into a deep recession sparked by a default in Greece or a massive bailout for Spain, orders for goods made in the U.S. and China are going to start falling off.

Is election a referendum or a choice? By Doyle McManus Los Angeles Times
The KU Medical Center professor censured last week for his behavior nonetheless played an important role in pushing for change in KUMC’s leadership.
riday’s Journal-World carried a story about Kansas University distinguished professor Curtis Klaassen receiving a censure from senior KU Medical Center officials for conduct considered “unprofessional, abusive, disruptive and unacceptable.” Dr. Klaassen is one of the more distinguished professors at the medical center and he has been the center of an investigation related to his behavior, loud voice and expectations for students, other faculty members and those in the school’s administration. The doctor’s closest friends and admirers acknowledge he has, on occasion, not behaved in an appropriate manner, but they also agree the investigation has gone on far too long, with many saying it was unwarranted. Klaassen has issued an apology, saying, “It was never my intention to bring dishonor or disrespect to the university.” The internationally noted researcher may have been disruptive at times, but he played a significant and positive role in calling attention to problems in the school’s leadership. His censure also should send a strong signal to university employees of the danger of being a whistle-blower. About two years ago Klaassen, along with several other KU School of Medicine faculty members, made a trip to Lawrence to visit with Chancellor Bernadette Gray-Little to tell her of their concerns about the leadership of Dr. Barbara Atkinson, who was both executive vice chancellor of the medical center and executive dean of the medical school. Later, he had another visit with the chancellor about Atkinson. Dr. Steve Stites, now the acting executive vice chancellor of KUMC after Atkinson’s resignation, informed the medical center community of the actions against Klaassen, but he also pointed out that the censure brings closure to a situation that had gone on for far too long. Medical center personnel, he said, now should be able to operate in an environment free of fear. In recent years, KUMC staff members talked about Atkinson managing the school through fear, intimidation and retaliation, and no one dared cross her or question her actions. One senior KUMC employee said the environment with Atkinson was “unimaginably awful.” Klaassen had the commitment to the welfare of the school to speak up about Atkinson, and he paid the price, but he also started the action that eventually forced Atkinson to seek the required selfevaluation of her leadership from her faculty. She had refused to initiate such an examination, which, it is believed, Gray-Little made it clear she wanted. It is reported the survey came back with “shockingly bad” reviews. The current environment within the medical school is totally different, with staff members eagerly awaiting the naming of a new dean and/or executive vice chancellor. Klaassen paid a high price for being a whistle-blower, but he, along with the others who visited with GrayLittle about conditions at the school are to be thanked and congratulated for having the courage to speak up. Better days are ahead for the medical center, and there will be a much better, more cooperative and mutually beneficial relationship with KU Hospital. LAWRENCE

Is November’s presidential election a referendum on President Obama’s record or a choice between two different approaches to government? How voters answer that question could well determine the outcome. If voters think their job is to pass judgment on Obama’s performance during his first four years, the president is in trouble. Polls show his job approval rating stuck at a notch below 50 percent, and for good reason. Unemployment is still high, the economy is struggling and Congress remains gridlocked. But if voters view the election instead as a choice between two sharply different
…what we face is a long, slow grind of a campaign that will focus mostly on each side’s warnings about the other, a negative campaign focused more on energizing partisans than persuading independents in the middle.” strategies for fixing the economy, the president has a better chance of being re-elected. Americans may not like Obama’s economic proposals much, but they haven’t embraced Mitt Romney’s either. That’s why last week’s mini-debate between the two candidates, who gave colliding speeches the same afternoon in Ohio, was important. Neither Obama nor Romney unveiled any new positions, but that shouldn’t have been a surprise. Instead, they concentrated on persuading voters to focus on what each campaign thinks the election ought to be about — on what campaign professionals call “framing.” Obama’s plea was that voters think about the election as a choice between two strategies for fixing the economy, not a referendum on his first term. He warned of the dire consequences of electing a Republican, charging it would mean more tax cuts for the rich, budget cuts for the poor and a voucher sys-
tem for Medicare. His core message boiled down to: You may not be happy with my record, but you’ll be even less happy with the other side. Romney, on the other hand, spent the week urging voters to see the election as a referendum. The former Massachusetts governor isn’t always faithful to the facts — he charged that Obama’s stimulus spending produced no private sector jobs at all, a wild exaggeration — but he’s become concise at attacking Obama’s economic record, and in politics that’s a cardinal virtue. “He’s been president for 3 1/2 years,” Romney said in his “prebuttal” speech Thursday. “If you want to see the results of his economic policies, look around … and you’ll see a lot of people are hurting.” Romney’s prescription is simple: Unleash private enterprise through lower taxes and less regulation. It’s a kind of free-market fundamentalism. If you want to know whether bank regulations are a good idea, he suggested, just ask a banker; for advice on energy policy, ask a coal mine operator. Anyone who expected a more moderate Massachusetts version of Romney to emerge once the general election campaign was under way is still waiting. After the primary season controversies over the
inconstant positions of his early career, the one thing Romney can’t afford is another flip-flop. Romney’s job is easier than Obama’s. All he needs to do is to ask voters whether they feel better off today than they did four years ago. The incumbent has to find a way to acknowledge voters’ pain and explain why he hasn’t banished it yet. That was a missing element in Obama’s speech: the explanation of what, if anything, went wrong over the last three years. The president argued, in effect, that his policies had worked as well as could be expected. “We acted fast,” he said. “Our economy started growing again six months after I took office.... Of course, we have a lot more work to do.” But that was a roadblock Obama sought to step over quickly on his way to his main message: “This election presents a choice between two fundamentally different visions of how to create strong, sustained growth, how to pay down our long-term debt and, most of all, how to generate good middle-class jobs.” Obama’s right about that. The question is whether he can get enough voters to take his advice to overlook the disappointing results of his first three years. The “focus groups” that
pollsters conduct — group interviews among preselected citizens — suggest that many voters are disappointed in Obama but still skeptical of Romney. “President Obama is in trouble,” pollster Peter D. Hart concluded after one such session among voters in Denver last week. Many of the voters who supported Obama in 2008, he said, “are philosophically in his corner but disappointed in his leadership.” In that environment, there’s no silver bullet for either candidate, no killer argument that’s going to sway millions of voters from one side to the other. Instead, what we face is a long, slow grind of a campaign that will focus mostly on each side’s warnings about the other, a negative campaign focused more on energizing partisans than persuading independents in the middle. And the economy is still likely to be a deciding factor — even on the way voters approach their decision. If growth stalls further, we may well see the “referendum election” Obama hopes to avoid. If not, the president still has a chance to make his case for a “choice election” that could yet swing his way. — Doyle McManus is a columnist for The Los Angeles Times.

Wreck center To the editor: The regional recreation center seems like a super good deal for the developer but not such a good one for the taxpayer. The developers, Fritzel Construction Co., will get: a) a no-bid job to construct the stadium, b) gas, water and sewer lines out to the stadium and shopping center paid by the taxpayers, c) roads out to the stadium and shopping center paid for by the taxpayers, and, d) automatic zoning approval for a 100-acre shopping center, without consideration of its impact on the neighborhoods or the rest of city retail. The residents of Lawrence will get for their payment to Fritzel Construction Co. of $100,000 a MONTH: a) a large track and field stadium and soccer field shared with Kansas University and national youth tournaments, but no provisions about when it will be available to local people or how it will be available to be used by individuals, small groups and clubs, b) the cost of maintenance and security, c) increased sales tax on users of the facility and for purchases at the shopping center, d) bonds will be retired but replaced by monthly payments that will prevent lowering the mill levy, e) a shopping center so far at the edge of the city that there is no public transport and therefore is unavailable to many people, and, f) more struggling retail in their neighborhoods. Sounds like a “wreck center” indeed. Pat Kehde, Lawrence
Noise pollution To the editor: Every day as I travel around this great city, I am accosted by the sounds
coming from beat-up or souped-up vehicles. These boom basses stimulate the ire of everyone aboard the bus I drive and causes them all to respond in a very negative way. The worst part is that as cool as the teen (or an adult acting like a teen) thinks he is, he is destroying his hearing, a sense that needs to be protected not made to suffer. Of course I am talking about our ears that need the quiet of the streets. The boom basses shake the windows in the bus and therefore shake the very body of each and every person there. Isn’t there a law against the disturbing of the peace or a noise pollution ordinance? What right does a person have to destroy the sounds in my car, bus, truck or whatever for the sounds of their horrible “music”? Don’t I have rights too? Can’t I enjoy what I am listening to without being interrupted by these loud, annoying and disruptive missiles of sound? If there isn’t, there ought to be a law!! David L. Omar, Lawrence
developments it will generate. Consider what the Strong Towns organization (http://www.strongtowns. org) has shown: “What we have found is that the underlying financing mechanisms of the suburban era — our post-World War II pattern of development — operates like a classic Ponzi scheme, with everincreasing rates of growth necessary to sustain long-term liabilities... “In each of these mechanisms, the local unit of government benefits from the enhanced revenues associated with new growth. But it also typically assumes the long-term liability for maintaining the new infrastructure. This exchange — a near-term cash advantage for a long-term financial obligation — is one element of a Ponzi scheme. “The other is the realization that the revenue collected does not come near to covering the costs of maintaining the infrastructure. In America, we have a ticking time bomb of unfunded liability for infrastructure maintenance. The American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) estimates the cost at $5 trillion — but that’s just for major infrastructure, not the minor streets, curbs, walks, and pipes To the editor: that serve our homes.” Is the rec complex and the developEric Kirkendall, ment it will foster financially prudent?

Mario big plus for Heat In general, new-fangled sports statistics rank right down there with sore throats, airplane seats next to compulsive talkers, extremely deliberate amblers negotiating crosswalks, golfers who take more than one practice swing, snakes, spiders and litterbugs. The migration of the hockey plus-minus statistic to the NBA seven years ago qualifies as a delightful exception. The statistic reflects how well a team performs when an individual is on the court. Interestingly, a player who seems to get chewed out by teammates more often than anybody in the NBA Finals had the third-best plus-minus ranking in the league during the regular season. It’s been quite a year for Mario Chalmers. Not only did he hire an image consultant, his older sister, Roneka, according to an ESPN the Magazine story on him, but he also ranked behind only Miami Heat teammate LeBron James and San Antonio Spurs guard Tony Parker in the plus-minus stat available on NBA.com. Oklahoma City Thunder reserve forward Nick Collison, ranked 25th in the league, is the only other former Jayhawk to make the top 50, although Paul Pierce of the Boston Celtics just missed. That doesn’t make Chalmers the league’s third-best player, but it does demonstrate he’s on the perfect team for him. LeBron James and Dwyane Wade drive and collapse the defense, leaving Chalmers open. His skill at stealing the ball and pitching it ahead to the game’s best finishers comes in handy, too. So why is everybody always yelling at him on TV during the most compelling NBA Finals in decades, and is there anything his image consultant can do about it? First it was Chris Bosh repeatedly getting in his face. Then the camera and its microphone picked up Wade, who looked perplexed and even a little hurt when he crinkled his face, cocked his head and told Chalmers, “I’m not like that. Come on, now.” And then there’s Collison, who plays like a robot programmed to appear in the right place at the perfect time. He takes charges, sets hard picks and rolls efficiently to the hoop on the NBA’s No. 1 bread-andbutter play. His help defense arrives consistently on time. Jeff Van Gundy, the best NBA color commentator ever because of his candor, humor, knowledge and disdain for the whole concept of image consultants, seems to like the way Chalmers and Collison play. A look at how KU players — injured Darrell Arthur missed all season — fared in plus-minus points, keeping in mind that it’s easier to be on the plus side when playing for a good team: 1. Chalmers (+390), 2. Collison (+267), 3. Pierce (+191), 4. Kirk Hinrich (+55), 5. Marcus Morris (-29), 6. Xavier Henry (-31), 7. Cole Aldrich (-33), 8. Josh Selby (-39), 9. Markieff Morris (-73), 10. Brandon Rush (-78), 11. Drew Gooden (-151).

Doyle officially joins Kansas ——
KU announces guard’s signing By Gary Bedore email@example.com
Lanky Milton Doyle, the latest addition to Kansas University’s basketball team, exhibited a soft shooting touch from beyond the three-point arc during a high-energy drill Monday at Bill Self’s basketball camp in Horejsi Center. “He’s got length and reminds me so much of Tyshawn He’s (Taylor), including re- got a lot cruiting in of upside. that he committed to … I think FIU (Florida he’ll give Internation- us great al), and they had a coach- depth in ing change, our backand we were court.” fortunate enough to recruit him af- — KU coach Bill ter that,” KU Self, on Milton coach Self Doyle said, officially announcing the 6-foot-4, 175-pound Chicagoan’s signing of a grant-in-aid agreement. Taylor, who committed to Marquette before a coaching change then switched to KU where he was a four-year starter, had a similar 6-3, 185 pound frame. “He’s got a lot of upside,” Self said of Doyle, who averaged 19.0 points, 7.0 rebounds, 5.0 assists and 5.0 steals per game his senior season at Chicago’s Marshall High. “He’s a combo guard that can certainly play on the ball. He’s also big enough and skilled enough to play off the ball and a very good athlete. I think he’ll give us great depth in our backcourt.” Doyle becomes the fifth Jayhawk from Chicago signed by Self at KU. Those include 2010 All-American Sherron Collins, Julian Wright, Mario Little and current freshman Jamari Traylor. “I’m so appreciative of his family trusting us throughout the recruiting process because it was so quick after the situation at Florida International,” Self said. Doyle decommitted after coach Isiah Thomas’ firing at FIU in April.

BARRY WATTS, LEFT, AND BRANDON URBAN, BOTH OF LAWRENCE, WALK TO THE GREEN on the 18th hole during a round Saturday at Lawrence Country Club in preparation for the Hundred Hole Hike later this month.
‘Hike’ a charity fundraiser Chris Duderstadt firstname.lastname@example.org
Barry Watts and Brandon Urban have scheduled June 25 as a day off from their jobs to go out to Lawrence Country Club, but they plan to play much more than the standard 18 holes of golf. Watts and Urban will be participating in the Hundred Hole Hike along with 57 others nationwide to raise awareness and money for different charities. “It is just a wonderful chance to support charities,” Watts said. “It is really the game we love, but at the same time, each of us have a cause that is special to it.” Watts serves as the youth and children’s minister at Lawrence Heights Christian Church, and he found out in December that Kelly Latham, a former member of his youth group, was officially diagnosed with Stage IV Hodgkin’s lymphoma. “Even though she is now in college, I have had the chance to really help and support her through this tough time,”
It is just a wonderful chance to support charities. It is really the game we love, but at the same time, each of us have a cause that is special to it.” — Lawrence golfer Barry Watts Watts said. “We actually just got a report (June 8) that she is in remission. The chemotherapy worked, and things are going well.” Latham said her battle with cancer was easier with people like Watts helping her and that she is now a cancer survivor instead of a cancer patient. “(Watts) was really supportive because I could talk to him about a lot of different emotions, and he also knows a lot of my friends, so I could talk to him about how me having cancer was affecting them,” Latham said. “He was just a positive influence and was there when I needed him.” Watts is raising money for The John & Michael Neal
Foundation for Cancer Research, which was founded by John Neal in 2005 to support cancer research worldwide. “It’s a wonderful foundation,” Watts said. “One hundred percent of the funds go to cancer research, and they split it among two or three different charities, but all of the money goes to that.” Watts and Urban have set a goal to play and walk 108 holes, and Urban knows that will be no easy feat even with the training he has done. “I’ve been walking a ton,” Urban said. “I’ve been playing a lot of golf, which has been great ... I play in an outdoor soccer league, and I play pick-up basketball, so those both kind of help a little bit. You know, it’s funny because I think probably regardless of what (Barry and I) do, nothing will prepare us for that day. I imagine it is going to be grueling but a lot of fun at the same time.” Urban will raise money for tiny-k Early Intervention of Douglas County.

Talib charges dismissed By Matt Tait email@example.com

HOUSTON’S JUSTIN MAXWELL, REAR, BEATS THE THROW to Kansas City catcher Humberto Quintero to score in the first inning of an eventual 9-7 Astros victory on Monday in Houston. Story on page 3B.
Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times reported Monday that the case against former Kansas University cornerback Aqib Talib had been dropped. Talib, an all-pro with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers whose status with the team has been uncertain throughout the offseason, was scheduled to stand trial on charges of assault with a deadly weapon June 25 in Dallas County, Texas. According to police, Talib allegedly pistol-whipped and fired shots at Shannon Billings, the live-in boyfriend of Talib’s sister, who resides in Garland, Texas. However, Billings’ history of run-ins with the law might have helped Talib in this case. “I guess the district attor-
ney, in preparing for trial, had a chance to evaluate the case,” Talib’s attorney, Frank Perez, told the Times Monday. “The bottom line is that the complainant is sitting in jail as a repeat child molester and has prior cases of the same nature.” Perez later released the following statement on Talib’s behalf: “ T o d a y , Talib the District Attorney for Dallas County, Texas, dismissed all of the charges that were filed against Aqib Talib in March, 2011. We appreciate the District Attorney’s thorough review of this case. Aqib is appreciative of the support that he received from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers or-
ganization, his teammates, Buccaneers fans and his friends and family during this difficult period. With this matter now successfully behind him, Aqib’s sole focus is on contributing to a successful 2012 season with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.” With the second-degree felony charge out of the way, Talib can turn his attention to his future with the Bucs and new head coach Greg Schiano instead of a possible jail sentence of 2-20 years. Thursday, Schiano addressed the media on a variety of topics, including Talib. “Well, anytime you have a guy where there’s an offthe-field situation that could affect his on-the-field situation, you’re concerned,” Schiano said. “The thing that I can tell you is, since I arrived here Jan. 26, he’s Please see JOHNSON, page 3B

Clemens acquitted on all charges WASHINGTON (AP) â€” Roger Clemens was acquitted Monday on all charges that he obstructed and lied to Congress in denying he used performance-enhancing drugs to extend his long career as one of the greatest and mostdecorated pitchers in baseball history. Fierce on the pitching mound in his playing days, Clemens was quietly emotional after the verdict was announced. â€œIâ€™m very thankful,â€? he said, choking up as he spoke. â€œItâ€™s been a hard five years,â€? said the pitcher, who was retried after an earlier prosecution ended in a mistrial. This case was lengthy, but the deliberations were relatively brief. Jurors returned their verdict after less than 10 hours over several days. The outcome end-

The verdict was the latest blow to the governmentâ€™s legal pursuit of athletes accused of illicit drug use.

LeBron, and Heat, proving themselves
Bobcats to hire St. Johnâ€™s assistant Dunlap
By Greg Cote McClatchy Newspapers
The LeBron James Haters Association would like to announce it is disbanding. There will be a going-out-of-business sale on old cardboard signs that no longer are usable, the ones that read â€œLeChoke!â€? and reference fourth-quarter failures. One stubborn outpost of the group remains, but that Cleveland chapter has seen such a sharp drop in members and enthusiasm that it no longer can afford rent for meeting space and will be merging with the Flat Earth Society. The extreme makeover is almost complete. Two victories away. For LeBron and the Miami Heat, two summers ago and the national animus it caused are fading by degrees, replaced not just by a success that is vindicating the whole idea of the Big 3, but by a work ethic and businesslike humility that are making life a lot harder for the straggling, stubborn haters who remain. Forget what first made â€œLeBronâ€? and â€œMiamiâ€? expletives to basketball fans â€” The Decision by James, the arena celebration that followed, the presumptiveness in the dynasty talk. It is time to let those things go and move on, isnâ€™t it? And anyone who is able to wipe that slate clean and judge by only what they are seeing now might arrive at a rather startling conclusion: This Heat team has earned your admiration. This is more than an easy team to appreciate; it has become an easy team to like. And all of that starts with James, who has evolved and seen his reputation follow. In the summer of 2010 he was the blindly unaware, towering ego who put himself in the middle of a national freeagency circus, callously walking out on his hometown team â€” or so his reputation formed. In the summer of 2011 James, still vilified for the above, failed for the first time with a basketball in his hands, inexplicably and mysteriously withering late in games as Miami lost to Dallas in the NBA Finals. The villain was a choker now, too â€” or so his reputation hardened. Now, in the summer of 2012, James has been a combination of two things that might seem at odds but are not: The very best there is, and sacrificing humbly in a way that is disarming even to his noisiest critics. What Heat fans have known since around midseason is an epiphany this week to many in the national media â€” that this is LeBronâ€™s team now, handed to him by Dwyane Wadeâ€™s own acknowledgement. We have seen it in this postseason, and in the Finals Miami leads 2-1 over Oklahoma City entering Game 4 tonight.
The Charlotte Bobcats have hired St. Johnâ€™s assistant Mike Dunlap to be their new head coach, two people familiar with the decision said. The people spoke on condition of anonymity Monday because an official announcement was still being planned for the next two days. The Charlotte Observer first reported the news. The choice comes as a bit of a surprise because Dunlap was not one of the teamâ€™s three finalists and rejoined the picture late. He was originally one of the 10 candidates to interview for the job, but the team trimmed the list to former Utah coach Jerry Sloan, Indiana assistant Dunlap coach Brian Shaw and Los Angeles Lakers assistant coach Quin Snyder last week. At some point Dunlap re-entered the picture and was offered and accepted the job Monday night. A text message sent to Dunlap was not immediately returned. Dunlap, 54, will replace Paul Silas, whose contract was not renewed after Charlotte finished with the worst winning percentage in NBA history this past season. The Bobcats were 7-59. Dunlap has spent most of his career at the college level and has worked under Lute Olson in Arizona.
League reveals bounty evidence NEW YORK â€” The NFL went public Monday with some of its evidence against the four players suspended for their roles in the New Orleans Saints bounty program. Among the things the league revealed: a prize of $35,000 for knocking Brett Favre out of the NFC championship game in January 2010. The league also displayed a computer slide it obtained from the Saints, dating from before a playoff game against Seattle the following season, showing photos of three Seahawks with â€œNow itâ€™s time to do our job. Collect bounty $$$!. No apologies. Letâ€™s go huntingâ€? printed on it. The evidence included hand-written notes, documents from the Saintsâ€™ computer system and witness testimony. The initial complaint that sparked the investigation back in 2010 came from then-Minnesota coach Brad Childress, who heard of a bounty on Favre in the championship game from a player. NFL lead counsel Jeff Pash showed reporters the material at the end of a day when the suspended players â€” Will Smith, Anthony Hargrove, Scott Fujita and Jonathan Vilma â€” each attended appeals hearings with Commissioner Roger Goodell at NFL headquarters in Manhattan. The players and their union objected to the process, saying it was unfair.
Tomlinson retires with Bolts SAN DIEGO â€” LaDainian Tomlinson was in the midst of saying goodbye to the NFL when his young son, Daylen, wandered across the dais and tugged on his pant leg, wanting a little attention. Tomlinson reached down and lifted him up, holding him as carefully as he used to carry the football. Joined by his family and several former teammates, Tomlinson ended his brilliant 11-year NFL career the same way he started it â€” with the San Diego Chargers. Tomlinson signed a one-day contract with the Chargers on Monday and then announced his retirement. â€œIt wasnâ€™t because I didnâ€™t want to play anymore. It was simply time to move on,â€? Tomlinson said.
Meyerâ€™s deal: $4M per year Ohio State is paying football coach Urban Meyer a minimum of $4 million annually â€” more money than his predecessor â€” and detailing in the contract what heâ€™s required to do if an NCAA rules violation occurs under his watch.
The university completed details of Meyerâ€™s contract and released it on Monday. The schoolâ€™s board of trustees is expected to approve it later in the week. The deal runs through the 2017 season and keeps the Buckeyes football coach among the top five nationally in compensation. Meyer was hired last November to rebuild the program, which got a one-year bowl ban for NCAA rules violations under former coach Jim Tressel.
â€˜Moneyâ€™ tops money list The worldâ€™s highest-paid athlete is in jail. The guy in second place just lost a title fight, and the man who held the distinction for a decade is now third. Forbes has released its list of the 100 highest paid athletes, and boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr., nicknamed â€œMoney,â€? is No. 1. Mayweather, who made $85 million for two fights last year, is currently serving a threemonth jail sentence in Las Vegas for domestic battery. Boxer Manny Pacquiao is second on the magazineâ€™s list at $62 million from earnings and endorsements. Pacquiao lost his WBO welterweight title to Timothy Bradley earlier this month. Tiger Woods, No. 1 on the list since 2001, made $59.4 million to place third. LeBron James of the Miami Heat is fourth ($53 million). He is one of 13 basketball players on the list. Tennis star Roger Federer is fifth at $52.7 million. Thirty football players made the top 100, with Peyton Manning tops among them at No. 10. The Denver Broncosâ€™ new quarterback made $42.4 million during his last season with the Indianapolis Colts, even though he sat out the entire season while recovering from a neck injury. David Beckham of the Los Angeles Galaxy was No. 8 overall and the highest ranked soccer player at $46 million. New York Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez was tops among baseball players and No. 18 overall with $33 million. Two women, both tennis players, made the list. Maria Sharapova ($27.9 million) comes in at No. 26, and Li Na ($18.4 million).
UM â€Ś THEATER?
Tyson in Broadway show NEW YORK â€” Mike Tyson wants his next knockout to be on Broadway. The former boxer announced Monday that he will team up with director Spike Lee to bring his one-man show, â€œMike Tyson: Undisputed Truth,â€? to the Longacre Theatre for six nights only, July 31 to Aug. 5. The show, a raw confessional on the highs and lows of the life of the retired heavyweight and tabloid target, will mark both Tysonâ€™s and Leeâ€™s debut on Broadway. It made its debut in April for a weeklong run at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.
Toronto FC players arrested HOUSTON â€” Three Toronto FC players have been charged with public intoxication after police said they got in a fight outside a Houston nightclub and then argued with officers. Police spokeswoman Jodi Silva says Miguel Aceval, Nick Soolsma and Luis Silva were jailed after the incident early Monday in the parking lot of the Club Escobar. Toronto FC plays the Houston Dynamo here Wednesday night.
U.S. women rout Japan HALMSTAD, SWEDEN â€” Abby Wambach and Alex Morgan each scored twice to give the United States a 4-1 win over Japan in its penultimate tuneup for the Olympics. Morgan put the U.S. ahead in the third minute and Wambach made it 2-0 in the 10th in the third rematch of 2011 World Cup finalists this year. Yuki Nagasato got a goal back for Japan in the 28th minute on a diving header to finish Aya Miyamaâ€™s pinpoint cross.

Bixler, Astros tip K.C. HOUSTON (AP) — Brian Bixler drove in a careerhigh three runs on three hits, including his first career homer, and Justin Maxwell and Brian Bogusevic also homered as the Houston Astros held off the Kansas City Royals for a 9-7 victory Monday night. J.A. Happ (5-7) yielded four hits and two runs in 6-plus innings to break a four-game losing streak. It was his first start since allowing 11 hits and eight runs — both career highs — in Houston’s 10-0 loss to San Francisco in which Matt Cain threw a perfect game. Maxwell hit a two-run homer after Bogusevic’s solo shot in Houston’s five-run eighth inning. Jonathan Sanchez (13) allowed six hits and four runs in six innings in his second start since a month-long stint on the disabled list with tendinitis in his left biceps. Things got dicey for the Astros in the ninth with a tough outing by closer Brett Myers, who allowed four consecutive singles

with one out to make it 9-3. The Royals got another run on a sacrifice fly by pinch-hitter Mitch Maier and Yuniesky Betancourt’s bases-loaded single scored two more. Billy Butler had an RBI
single to get Kansas City within 9-7 and bring loud boos from the crowd. The eighth hit of the inning, a single by Jeff Francoeur, chased Myers, bringing in Xavier Cedeno, who retired Mike Moustakas to get his first save. Bixler’s solo homer came on a shot to the Crawford Boxes in left field that tied it 1-1 in the first. Maxwell walked and later scored from first on an error by Sanchez when he badly missed a throw to first base on a pickoff attempt to make it 2-1. Sanchez plunked Chris Johnson to start Houston’s fourth inning. Sanchez’s second botched pickoff attempt of the game allowed Johnson to advance to third, and he scored on a one-out single by Chris Snyder to make it 3-1. Betancourt tripled with one out in the first and scored on a two-out single by Francoeur to put Kansas City up 1-0. Happ retired 13 of the next 14 batters before Alex Gordon doubled to start the sixth.

“I have known coach (Henry) Cotton (at Marshall) for a long, long time, and he sings Milton’s praises on his talent. Milton would have been a very highly recruited kid had he played AAU last summer, but he didn’t because he was injured (wrist), and a lot of people didn’t have the opportunity to see him.” O
Another Chicago prospect: KU is one of 14 schools in the hunt for Chicagoan Jabari Parker, the No. 1-rated player in the recruiting class of 2013. Parker, 6-7, 215 from Simeon High, told zagsblog.com he has a list of KU, Duke, Michigan State, Kentucky, North Carolina, Ohio State, Illinois, DePaul, Louisville, North-
western, Missouri, BYU, UConn and Washington. Some believe Duke, Michigan State and Kentucky are the heavy favorites. Parker said he will cut the list to “about eight” sometime this summer. He plans to make campus visits in the fall and sign with a school in November. “I’m on a setback not making as much progress as I should be (cutting his list), but I’m looking to making my choice in November.

Young leaves Puerto Rico camp: KU senior forward Kevin Young will not be playing for Puerto Rico’s national team in the Olympics. Young, who has been at
tryouts in Puerto Rico the past several weeks, was one of 12 players invited to compete in a tourney in Puerto Rico this week. However, he was told he was not yet guaranteed a spot on the national team because several pro players are expected to report to tryout camp soon. “It was a fun experience, and I gained a lot from it, but I’d rather focus on summer school and Kansas basketball,” Young said Monday. He plans to return to Lawrence this week.

Johnson, who was signed by the Broncos immediately following the NFL Draft in April, showcased his passion for the game and relentless attitude while attempting to join former teammate and fellow-KU alumnus Chris Harris in making the Broncos’ roster as an undrafted rookie. Jeff Legwold, of The Denver Post, recently was asked about Johnson in a Q&A, and the answers he provided indicate that Johnson has a legitimate shot at making Denver’s 53-man roster. Here are a couple of snippets from Legwold’s analysis of the former Jayhawk. Q “Johnson’s challenge will be to show quality play speed and to add some strength. He had good numbers in his workouts to measure explosiveness as well as a good showing in agility drills at his pro day. But his strength numbers were below average, so these offseason workouts are important for him. Once training camp opens, he’ll have to show he can shed blockers and keep his feet on the way to the ball.... Johnson will also have to show some impact on special teams, the fast track for any player hoping to make it as an undrafted player.” Q “Though he played in one of the worst defenses in the nation, for a team that went 5-19 in his last two years and surrendered 678 yards alone in an October loss to Baylor, Johnson still was noticed by NFL scouts by how he played through those struggles.” Q “If Johnson had been a tick or two faster on the stopwatch or a few pounds bigger, he certainly would have found himself drafted. At least two teams I spoke to before the draft had a borderline late seventh/priority free agent grade on him. Still, he’s in a good place to have a chance to make it … .”

Another 1-hitter for Dickey ————
Aaron Hill cycles for Diamondbacks The Associated Press
Mets 5, Orioles 0 NEW YORK — R.A. Dickey became the first majorleague pitcher in 24 years to throw consecutive onehitters, and Ike Davis hit a grand slam to lead the Mets past Baltimore on Monday night. Coming off a one-hit gem at Tampa Bay last Wednesday, the knuckleballer struck out a careerhigh 13 and allowed only Wilson Betemit’s clean single in the fifth inning. The previous pitcher to throw consecutive onehitters was Dave Stieb for Toronto in September 1988, according to STATS LLC. The Mets said the last to do it in the National League was Jim Tobin with the Boston Braves in 1944, according to research by the Elias Sports Bureau. The 37-year-old Dickey (11-1) walked two and became the first 11-game winner in the majors. Baltimore

D’backs 7, Mariners 1 PHOENIX — Aaron Hill hit a solo homer in the seventh inning to become the fifth Arizona player to hit for the cycle, lifting the Diamondbacks over Seattle. Hill hit a single in the first inning off Hector Noesi (2-8), added a triple in the third and a double off the Mariners starter in the fifth. He finished it off in style, hitting a one-out, solo homer off Shawn Kelley in the seventh for the majors’ second cycle this season. New York Mets outfielder Scott Hairston had the other one, against the Colorado Rockies on April 27. It was the first cycle by a Diamondbacks player since Kelly Johnson did it against San Francisco on July 23, 2010. Stephen Drew (2008), Greg Colbrunn (2002) and Luis Gonzalez (2000) also hit for the cycle with the Diamondbacks. Seattle hadn’t allowed a player to hit for the cycle since Oakland’s Miguel Tejada did it on Sept. 29, 2001, at Seattle. Arizona also tied a team record with four sacrifice flies, giving Wade Miley (8-3) more than enough run support. Seattle

Brewers 7, Blue Jays 6 MILWAUKEE — Aramis Ramirez’s liner down the left-field line was ruled a home run after umpires reversed a foul ball call using video replay in the seventh inning that snapped a tie and lifted the Brewers to a victory over the Blue Jays. Ramirez hit a 1-2 pitch off rookie Robert Coello (0-1) that hit the outside corner of a yellow pad below the foul pole. Third base umpire Paul Nauert ruled it a foul ball. He agreed to check video replay after discussing the play with Milwaukee manager Ron Roenicke and third base coach Ed Sedar while watching a fan dramatically pound the pad in question. Umpires spent about 90 seconds checking the replay, before returning and signaling a home run for Ramirez, his eighth of the year. Kameron Loe (4-2) was

Yankees 6, Braves 2 NEW YORK — CC Sabathia struck out 10, Derek Jeter drove in three runs, and the Yankees won their 10th straight game, beating the Braves. Mark Teixeira and Robinson Cano hit solo home runs as the Yankees matched their longest winning streak since May 2005. The team with the AL’s best record kept rampaging in interleague play — all 10 of these triumphs have come against NL teams with winning records, including a sweep at Turner Field last week. Michael Bourn led off the game with a triple and scored when Martin Prado followed with a groundout, ending Atlanta’s 20-inning shutout string. But the Braves’ first game at the new Yankee Stadium and first trip to the Bronx since 2006 still resulted in their seventh loss in eight tries. Sabathia (9-3) gave up seven hits in his 34th career complete game, and first since last July. He walked one, and fanned Chipper Jones and Jason Heyward to finish it. Mike Minor (3-5) took

Cubs 12, White Sox 3 CHICAGO — Bryan LaHair and Alfonso Soriano homered to lead the Cubs to a victory over the White Sox in the opener of the crosstown, interleague series. With winds gusting to 41 mph the Cubs had season highs of five home runs, 15 hits and 12 runs. Starlin Castro and Luis Valbuena homered and had three hits apiece for the Cubs and Geovany Soto added a solo shot in his first game back from the 15-day disabled list. Matt Garza (3-5) allowed home runs to Paul Konerko and A.J. Pierzynski, but limited the damage to three runs over six innings to earn the win. Zack Stewart (1-2) was tagged for six runs and nine hits, including four homers, over 52⁄3 innings. Chicago (N)

MIAMI FORWARD LEBRON JAMES TAKES A BREAK on the scorer’s table during practice Monday in Miami. The Heat will play the Oklahoma City Thunder in Game 4 of the NBA finals tonight.
Heat on familiar ground — up 2-1 in Finals MIAMI (AP) — LeBron James arrived for practice Monday wearing limegreen sneakers, a highly fluorescent shade. It was the fashion statement du jour for the league’s three-time MVP, much like the eyeglass frames he’s been sporting after games throughout this postseason. But those sneakers probably would have remained tucked away in the drawer beneath his locker during last year’s NBA Finals, since very little about James’ game would be considered glowing or luminous during those two weeks. Different year, different story. For the second straight season, the Miami Heat hold a 2-1 lead in the NBA Finals. There’s a glaring difference this time around — that being James is playing at the top of his game. And he’ll try to help the Heat move within one win of a championship tonight, when Miami plays host to the Oklahoma City Thunder in Game 4 of this title series. “We’re a totally different team than we was last year when we was up 2-1,” James said Monday. “We’re a totally different team. We understand what it takes to win, we’ve used that motivation, and we will continue to use that motivation. But last year is last year, and we’re not going into a Game 4 on someone else’s floor. We’re going into a Game 4 on our floor with a lot of experience in this type of situation. We’ll be ready. We love the challenge.” Miami lost Game 4 in Dallas last year, the start of a three-game slide that ended with the Mavericks hoisting the title trophy. So the Thunder know a 2-1 deficit in a series is hardly insurmountable, even though the homecourt roles are reversed this time around. And if Oklahoma City needed more proof, all the Thunder need do is remember the Western Conference finals when they lost the first two games to San Antonio, becoming the 19th and 20th entries on the Spurs’ incredible winning streak. The Spurs didn’t win another game the rest of the way. “We were down 2-0 against San Antonio and everybody thought the series was over,” Thunder coach Scott Brooks said. “But I know our guys, they’re very competitive, they’re very resilient. They’ve always showed
SCHEDULE (x-if necessary) Miami 2, Oklahoma City 1 Tuesday, June 12: Oklahoma City 105, Miami 94 Thursday, June 14: Miami 100, Oklahoma City 96 Sunday: Miami 91, Oklahoma City 85 Today: Oklahoma City at Miami, 8 p.m. Thursday: Oklahoma City at Miami, 8 p.m. x-Sunday, June 24: Miami at Oklahoma City, 7 p.m. x-Tuesday, June 26: Miami at Oklahoma City, 8 p.m. that type of effort every game, and we’ve always been a great bounce-back team. I thought last night was a great bounce-back last night. It’s unfortunate we didn’t make a couple plays, and uncharacteristic, also.” Uncharacteristic. That would also be a fine word to describe how James played in the finals last season. He freely acknowledges that he “didn’t make enough plays” against the Mavericks a year ago, and the numbers — 17.8 points, 7.2 rebounds and 6.8 assists per game — back that up, as do his well-chronicled fourth quarter struggles in that series. So far in this year’s finals, James is averaging 30.3 points, 10.3 rebounds and 4 assists, and in the final minutes of Miami’s two wins in the series he’s done his part to slam the door on the Thunder. “He’s been aggressive. He’s an aggressive player,” Thunder guard James Harden said. “He’s been aggressive all year, all postseason. He’s tall, strong, and physical. He’s a tough matchup. It takes five guys to really lock down on their offense because they’re a very offensive team especially with LeBron and (Dwyane) Wade.” James is shooting 46 percent in the series, not even close to the 57 percent clip Kevin Durant is putting up for Oklahoma City. But here’s maybe one piece of proof to support that aggression notion Harden was speaking of — James is 25 for 29 from the foul line in the three games, while Durant is just 14 for 19 so far in the series. James has done much of his work near the rim in these finals. But while it wasn’t his most memorable shot, perhaps the biggest one he hit all night
in Miami’s Game 3 victory was a 3-pointer late in the third quarter, one of just five shots that the Heat made from outside the paint in that game. That shot put Miami up entering the fourth, and seemed to extend the Thunder defense just enough to allow James, Wade and Chris Bosh to create more in the lane late. “The biggest evolution of great players is they always stay in constant state of being uncomfortable,” Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said. “They don’t stay satisfied. And LeBron every summer has added something to his game. I’ve seen it when I’ve followed him from afar, and now that I’ve gotten to know him he’s added two, three, four different elements now to his game, the welldocumented one of the post-up game, which we needed. But he continues to try to improve and stay uncomfortable. I think that’s a sign of greatness.” Another sign of greatness? Rings. James’ first is just two wins away, again. And yes, the memories of what went wrong in 2011 still drive Miami now. “Experience don’t guarantee you anything,” Wade said. “It just lets you know I’ve been here before. That doesn’t mean it’s going to be successful for you. So for us we’ve got to continue ... to make the game that we’re in, the moment that we’re in the biggest moment and the biggest game and not look back and not look forward too much. Obviously the team that was here that lost the championship last year, that burning sensation is going to be inside of us until we change that.” A year ago, the talk was how James shied away from the biggest moments, the brightest moments. It’s not happening now. Miami overcame a 10-point deficit in the third quarter of Game 3, becoming the first team in these playoffs to dig out of that large a second-half hole against the Thunder. James had eight points and four rebounds in the fourth quarter — no Thunder player had more than four points or two rebounds in those last 12 minutes. Not pretty, but more than good enough to put the Heat back in the spot where last year’s finals went awry. “I don’t give a damn how we get four,” James said. “We can win 32-31. It doesn’t matter to me.”

Dear Annie: I married at the age of 18. Shortly before my wedding, both of my parents died, leaving me with no other relatives. I looked forward to sharing life with my husband’s large, closeknit family. But the day after the ceremony, my new mother-in-law began a crusade to divorce me. She went to each family member with horrible lies about me, and they believed her. I never got the chance to know them. The worst lie was telling my husband that I was unfaithful. The whole family condemned me without a shred of evidence. Fortunately, my husband knew better. My mother-in-law banned me from all family functions and forbade everyone from having contact with me. She insisted that we move far away to a rural area, isolated from everyone. Before every holiday and family event for the past 25 years, I
Marcy Sugar and Kathy Mitchell email@example.com
have cried watching my husband drive off for a day of fun and memories with his family, leaving me all alone. He says that he cannot disobey his mother, especially now that she is terminally ill. After she dies, I am hoping that things will change and that I finally will be allowed to join the clan, but I’m unsure how to do this. My husband feels things should continue as they are. He seems to relish the role of martyr at the hands of a horrible wife. It is difficult to discuss this
Lifetime gives Bristol Palin own series Reality television reduces everything it touches to reality TV. The “star” (and the mother of the “star”) of “Bristol Palin: Life’s a Tripp” (9 p.m., Lifetime) may have wanted a showcase about the burdens and rewards of single motherhood, but ultimately this genre drags everyone down to the level of a Kardashian. “Life’s a Tripp” is mostly about shopping and talking and talking about shopping. You can at least cut the Kardashians some slack for not pretending to be role models. Sarah Palin — former Alaska governor, former vice presidential candidate and former “star” of “Sarah Palin’s Alaska” on TLC — makes several appearances on daughter Bristol’s show. Any thinking person would have concluded long ago that allowing Sarah Palin to rattle on unscripted in front of cameras does not reflect her in the strongest light. But it’s never been clear that Palin’s appeal extends to thinking people. Like “Alaska,” this series is filled with the Palins making pronouncements and then behaving in ways completely at odds with their stated philosophies. On “Alaska,” the former governor complained about people invading her privacy, while opening up her family’s life to the scrutiny of a camera crew. On “Life’s a Tripp,” Bristol Palin extols the beauties and virtues of Alaska in one scene and then decides to move to Beverly Hills in the next. Mother Palin talks about the vital sacrifice of motherhood one moment and then encourages her daughter to have an adventure in a posh Hollywood mansion. She also encourages Bristol to take her younger sister, Willow, with her. Isn’t Willow still in high school? Bristol continually tells us that her son, Tripp, is the center of her life, yet she spends most of the time shopping, cavorting and clubbing, all the while condemning the shallowness of the LA lifestyle. Bristol has found one appropriate outlet for her “do as I say, not as I do” behavior. She’s going on the lecture circuit to promote sexual abstinence. And “Life’s a Tripp” will be there to follow her.

with him, as he has an uncontrollable temper and sometimes resorts to physical violence. Should I simply accept that I never will be able to call anyone family? Sadly, divorce is out of the question for many reasons. — Alone in Minnesota Dear Alone: Your husband is a coward, as well as an abuser. After 25 years, we wouldn’t count on his family being more accepting, particularly if your husband discourages it. Instead, please consider “family” those people who care about you. If you have children, they, their spouses and their inlaws are your family. If you don’t have children, your friends can become the family you need. Since divorce is not an option, we recommend counseling on your own to help you cope better with the hand you’ve been dealt. Dear Annie: My wife

READY, WILLING AND NOT ABEL By Rob Lee
and I own a place in a resort community where golfing greens fees at a public course are included in our annual charges. We are not sure how to handle it when guests visit and want to play golf with us. It feels awkward when they pay the full amount while we appear to be getting in for free. Should we subsidize our friends even though we’ve already paid our fees as part of our yearly dues? — Paul Dear Paul: You should treat this as you would if taking your friends to a museum, concert or out for dinner. If you’ve invited them to golf with you, you should pay the greens fees. However, if they invite themselves, they should handle their own costs. What you and your wife pay is irrelevant, although you could explain the circumstances if it would make you feel better.

Whether you’re involved with a creative project or just coming up with a dynamic idea, you will be busy this afternoon. Tonight: Enjoy what you are doing.
