KU tuition going up; so are admission standards By Scott Rothschild firstname.lastname@example.org
TOPEKA — Economically and academically, Kansas University is getting more expensive and selective. The Kansas Board of Regents on Wednesday approved tuition and fee increases and gave KU
Regent: ‘For the average Kansas family, this is going to be tough’
permission to go ahead with the process of putting in place tougher admission standards. The increased costs will take effect this fall. Most KU students pay tuition under a compact that guarantees their rate
for four years. Under that compact, incoming KU freshmen who are Kansas residents will pay an additional 4.9 percent in tuition and fees, bringing the cost of a 15-credit-hour semester to $4,839. Tuition and fees
for non-resident freshmen will increase 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 for non-residents, to $10,865. Board members lamented the increases requested by the regents schools, but unanimously Please see TUITION, page 7A

Here’s betting you haven’t lost this much money on a local golf course. City of Lawrence officials are contending a multi-year, meter-reading mix-up resulted in Alvamar Country Club and the Lawrence Country Club being underbilled for water usage to the tune of $325,000. City Manager David Corliss confirmed Wednesday the city has begun working to collect the amounts that the city did not properly bill to the golf courses. Corliss also confirmed the two country clubs disagree with the city’s new figures and the matter is in dispute. “We’re trying to get all the facts and be fair to everyone involved,” Corliss said. Attempts to reach repre- Corliss sentatives with the Alvamar Country Club and the Lawrence Country Club weren’t successful Wednesday afternoon. Corliss said city officials late last year began investigating what seemed like odd numbers being billed to Alvamar Country Club. The club in some cases was using water at a rate that was only half of its historical average, said Ed Mullins, the city’s director of finance who oversees utility billing.

KU officials optimistic about NCI designation By Andy Hyland and George Diepenbrock firstname.lastname@example.org; email@example.com
Kansas University leaders are optimistic their long quest for National Cancer Institute designation will be successful, but they are still awaiting word from one final panel that meets next week. Cancer center applications
are judged on a score from reviewers from the NCI but also must be approved by the National Cancer Advisory Board. Jensen Roy Jensen, director of the KU Cancer Center, said KU wouldn’t re-
KU applied for the designation in September, after working for seven years and investing more than $350 million toward the effort. At the time, university officials said the effort had already created 1,123 jobs and contributed $453 million to the region’s economy. “Obtaining NCI designation would dramatically

technology that transfers the information from the digital meter to the city’s billing software. Mullins said city officials determined the proper number of digits was not being transferred into the billing system. At that point, Corliss said, he ordered a review of the meter data for the city’s largest water customers, such as Kansas University, industrial users and wholesale customers such as Baldwin City and various rural water districts. During the course of that review, the city found a similar breakdown had occurred with the meter at the Lawrence Country Club. The city now contends Alvamar was underbilled by about $240,000 from September 2008 to October 2011. The Lawrence Country Club, the city contends, was underbilled by about $85,000 from January 2009 to September 2011. The meters in question were special digital meters that were read using radio frequencies. City employees could drive by the meter and have the data downloaded into the city system through a radio frequency. Of the 30,000 meters operated by the city, about 2,000 are of the radio variety, Mullins said. Mullins, though, said the two meters at the country clubs shared a similarity in that the meter and the

transmitter were made by two different companies. That’s not the case with most of the city’s radiooperated meters. The city didn’t have an estimate of how many meters fall into that category. Corliss said the city did not find any other meter discrepancies when it reviewed the readings from its largest customers. Mullins said the nature of the problem makes it unlikely meters of smaller users were read improperly. Corliss said the city would work with any customer who has a concern about the accuracy of a water meter, although the technological problem hasn’t been linked to any customers being overcharged for water. “We are more than happy to go out and talk to customers individually and show them how we can test the accuracy of their meters,” Corliss said. Corliss said the city investigated the matter to determine if there was any sign of fraud related to the string of incorrect meter readings. “We didn’t see anything other than it was just a technical error in the reading,” Corliss said. Corliss said the city will continue to engage the two country clubs in discussions and try to reach a negotiated settlement. He said he likely will refer the matter to the City Commission for a decision on what type of settlement commissioners believe would be appropriate.
Eudora school district officials said in March that once the allegations in Wichita surfaced, Brundage was placed on administrative leave. Kristin Magette, a Eudora schools spokeswoman, said Wednesday that Brundage was technically still on suspension of his current contract. Eudora board members in April voted not to renew Brundage’s teaching contract for the upcoming school year, she said. According to a Wichita police report, a woman on Feb. 29 made an allegation to police that her daughter was touched inappropriately between January 2010 and Feb. 1 of this year in Sedgwick County. Wichita police later arrested Brundage in the case.

It mainly serves Douglas, Jefferson and Franklin counties. “It’s just very surreal,” said Heartland CEO Jon Stewart. “It means a lot for us. It means we obviously are going to have more resources to do what we are here to do.” Stewart estimates the center’s annual budget will go from $500,000 to $1.5 million, which will allow it to spend more money on staff and equipment. “We are actually going to be able to make a dent in our wish list. That’s exciting,” he said. Currently, the center has about 15 full-time employees, and that will increase to 25 by year’s end. Stewart expects the center will be able to take care of twice as many patients in the first year, increasing from 5,000 to 10,000.

federal funding to achieve designation. “The KU Cancer Center is poised to deliver results that will significantly impact cancer research, drive economic development in our state now and well into the future and, most importantly, offer hope to thousands of patients in Kansas and across our country,” Moran said. The designation would mark the end of a long journey for KU. Former Chancellor Robert Hemenway made pursuit of NCI designation the university’s top research priority in 2005, and the effort has remained a top priority ever since. Leaders at KU have said if they achieve NCI designation they would begin working right away on the next goal: becoming designated as a comprehensive cancer center. That’s an additional designation from the NCI that is the highest designation that an academic cancer center can receive. The effort also has been a top priority for KU donors. A fundraising council in Kansas City helped generate $62 million for the cause, and more money has been contributed since the group concluded its work before the university applied for designation in September, including a $10.5 million gift from the Hall Family Foundation in February. — Reporter Andy Hyland can be reached at 832-6388.

January 2011 and was denied last summer, so the news was surprising but welcomed. Douglas County was the second largest county in Kansas without a FQHC designation, and now there are 17 statewide, including Heartland. The Lawrence safety net clinic was one of 219 centers that received a total $128.6 million in Wednesday’s announcement by Sebelius. Stewart said he’s toured other FQHCs and has seen firsthand the opportunities that exist. “I think this is going to be a pretty neat thing for Lawrence,” he said. “There are over 14,000 people in Lawrence for whom health care is financially out of reach, and we, as a community, have the opportunity change that.”

County leaders hear plan to spruce up fairgrounds By Alex Garrison email@example.com
A more than $3 million plan to renovate the Douglas County Fairgrounds has the County Commission’s “enthusiastic support” but won’t be going forward, at least not until further budget considerations are made and plan-supporters can provide more detailed information on maintenance and financing options as well as operational costs
if the plan were approved. The Fairgrounds Capital Improvement Project Committee presented the plan to the three commissioners Wednesday evening. It proposes razing two buildings currently on the site in favor of an open pavilion, park area and new meeting hall. It would cost somewhere between $3.3 million and $3.6 million. Several community members also spoke in favor of the improvements
and “were very persuasive,” commissioner Nancy Thellman said. Some of the speakers were concerned that the improvements would cause the county to raise the rental rates out of their price range. Currently, many of the restrooms at the site are not up to code. Commissioner Jim Flory said he saw the fairgrounds as “an investment in the community,” but Please see COUNTY, page 4A

VISUAL ARTIST JOHN SEBELIUS has made a documentary, “Searching At Sturgis,” about the famous motorcycle rally. He says he learned a lot from a national dust-up that followed a controversial board game he created when he was 21.
Former ‘first son’ Sebelius to debut motorcycle films By Terry Rombeck
John Sebelius starts the explanation with this: “I was 21 when I made the game.” It’s not an apology. It’s just a statement. The game was “Don’t Drop the Soap,” a prisonthemed, Monopoly-esque board game that earned Sebelius national publicity in 2008, with the game’s official release. But it also sparked controversy when a state representative called the game’s title inappropriate and called for an investigation into whether the governor’s mansion — where Sebelius’ mother, Kathleen, held the state’s top executive post — was
being used to market the creation. “I was pretty green to any backlash,” Sebelius says. “I learned a lot about business, the press and taxes, just like a lot of young artists.” At the time of the game’s wide release, Sebelius was 23 and had just completed a degree at the Rhode Island School of Design. His primary artistic medium was illustration. Fast-forward more than five years, and he has completed his Master’s of Fine Arts degree from Kansas University and has expanded his art to filmmaking and a clothing line. He’s looking to establish himself as a serious artist.
“I’m changing and growing as a person and an artist,” he says. Sebelius’ works — film, sculpture and 2-D art — will be featured during an event Saturday that also showcases the newly renovated Granada theater, 1020 Mass. Sebelius, now 28, will screen both his film debut, “Searching at Sturgis,” a personal-narrative documentary about his first experience at the famed motorcycle rally, as well as “71st Annual Rally,” his short film of vignettes featuring the most recent motorcycle event. He also will have art on display throughout the event. Please see SEBELIUS, page 4A
City unveils pickup truck as test vehicle for using natural gas By Chad Lawhorn firstname.lastname@example.org
A city experiment to test the efficiency of natural gas-powered vehicles is now under way. City officials on Wednesday unveiled a new F-150 pickup truck that will serve as a test vehicle to determine whether money could be saved by converting much of the city’s fleet of 500 vehicles to run on compressed natural gas. “I really want us to explore using natural gas for our trash trucks,” Mayor Bob Schumm said. “I think the payback can be very quick with today’s gasoline and natural gas prices.” The city, though, is starting with a standard pickup truck that is used by a city streets supervisor. Black Hills Energy, the city’s largest natural gas utility, and Missouri-
based Fuel Conversion Solutions donated the conversion kit that allows the truck to operate either Schumm with compressed natural gas or unleaded gasoline. City officials will begin collecting data on the truck, including:
Fuel mileage. The experts predict the truck will get the same fuel mileage with natural gas as it does with unleaded gasoline. If so, the city would be in line to save on fuel prices for the truck. Currently, it takes about $1.50 worth of compressed natural gas to equal one gallon of gasoline. It takes about $1.75 worth of natural gas to equal one gallon of diesel fuel.
Reliability. The conversion kit required several new pieces of equipment to be installed on the truck, including a pressurized fuel tank, regulators and fuel injectors. City maintenance crews want to see the reliability of those systems before committing to add more natural gas vehicles to the fleet. They also want to test claims that the engines burn cleaner, and even need to have oil changes performed about half as often as a traditional gasoline engine.
Fueling. The city will use a compressed natural gas fueling station located at Black Hills Energy’s maintenance shop in east Lawrence. The process to fuel the 20-gallon tank takes about 10 minutes, depending on how full the fueling station’s main

KBA approves $8.4M in investments County By Andy Hyland email@example.com
The Kansas Bioscience Authority’s board of directors approved $8.4 million in new investments Wednesday, including $4.9 million over five years for Kansas State University to recruit a distinguished professor of veterinary medicine. Jim Riviere, director for the Center of Chemical Toxicology Research and Pharmacokinetics at North Carolina State University, will become the
first member of the National Academy of Science to join Kansas State. Kansas State also hired his wife, Nancy MonteiroRiviere, who will serve as a Regents Distinguished Scholar. The KBA also approved a variety of other applications for funding Wednesday, according to a statement from the authority, including:
Two grants totaling $1.6 million for Epic Medical Concepts and Innovations, a Mission medical device company.
The grants will enable the company to perform development work on two new neurological devices and support the company’s plan to hire 137 people over the next five years.
A $1 million grant to Xenometrics, a Stilwell company, to retain the company’s offices and add 31 employees over five years.
A $500,000 grant to Creche Innovations, of Overland Park. The grant will offset the company’s costs for a larger manufacturing facility and support
its plans to hire 82 new employees.
A purchase of $300,000 in equity in Novita Therapeutics, an Olathe company that develops medical devices and pharmaceuticals for cardiovascular, renal and gastrointestinal diseases. The investment, made alongside private investors, will help the company develop three cardiovascular medical devices and test prototypes.

St. John’s Fiesta to celebrate Mexican flavor Popular annual fundraising event this weekend By Adam Strunk firstname.lastname@example.org
Just as hot weather and cicadas indicate the beginning of summer, the newly hung Mexican flags signal the coming of the St. John’s Mexican Fiesta. This weekend thousands of people are expected to descend upon St. John the Evangelist Catholic Church, 1234 Ky., drawn by the smell of homemade tamales and the sound of mariachi music. The event, from 6 p.m. to 11:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday, will serve as a fundraiser for the church, which will sell food and take donations. The fiesta will also feature the bands Steele Road and Grupo Picante, along with the St. John’s Fiesta Dancers. The money — they raise up to $40,000 annually — will go to St. John Catholic School and help provide a scholarship for parish students looking to attend college or a vocational school.

After beginning to draw bikers, Sebelius and a buddy decided to travel to the South Dakota town in the Black Hills that draws thousands of bikers and their motorcycles each year. The goal was to photograph bikers that later would be inspiration for drawings and paintings. He admits he was a little nervous about how two nonbikers would be treated.

MAYOR BOB SCHUMM fills up a city pickup truck that was recently converted to run on compressed natural gas Wednesday. but want to see it in action on the local level first. “We need something like this to get us started,” Zaremba said. In addition to the city truck, Black Hills Energy operates four vehicles powered by natural gas and has plans for more. Black Hills has had the Lawrence fueling station, which is not open to the public, for a little more than a year. Tim Hess, manager of gas marketing for Black Hills, said the station cost about $150,000.
“I was accepted by a community I wasn’t a part of,” Sebelius says. “I was met with kindness and compassion.” Not only did the experience lead to a documentary — and now a complementary short film — it also has inspired his visual art since then. “It was an opportunity to take some risks,” he says of his post-Sturgis liberation. “I could break out of my background of illustration.” Now, Sebelius has moved from mostly oil painting to working with spray paints, wood and found objects. He recently finished a sculpture out of old drawing boards — complete with paint, ink and perhaps tears of generations of students — that were being discarded by KU. He also continues to focus on portraiture,
les, tostadas, enchiladas, burritos, the list goes on — seems like a daunting task, but Schmeidler, who is now in his eighth year at the parish, said the women who cook all of the food make it look easy. “They have it down to a system,” Schmeidler said. This is the 31st annual St. John’s Fiesta, and some of the women have been cooking since the fiesta started. Back then it was called a mini-Fiesta. As the years passed, the event grew until there was nothing mini about it.
He said larger stations that allow for quicker fueling cost $600,000 to $1 million, depending on several factors. Zaremba said true retail fueling stations, which will allow motorists to fill their vehicles in about the same time as with a standard gasoline pump, can cost even more. But Zaremba thinks the city soon will be in a position to know whether it wants to add more natural gas vehicles to their fleet. “I think in the next year or less, they’ll have some good data,” Zaremba said. Lanny Wagoner, a vice president with Fuel Conversion Solutions, estimated the cost to convert the city pickup truck was about $9,500 to $11,000. He said at today’s prices, it takes about 45,000 miles of use before the fuel savings have paid for the cost to convert the vehicle to run on natural gas. — City reporter Chad Lawhorn can be reached at 832-6362.

only in a new medium. Used items are one theme in Sebelius’ art. His clothing line, Gillius, started with secondhand clothing on which he added his own drawings. Though he has scaled back mass-produced clothes, he still does special requests. As for the future of his art, Sebelius says bigger is better — he’s looking larger-scale, and to be more productive. He also is working on a documentary about Slab City, a community in California where Sebelius is helping to refurbish a 1976 Dodge RV and hopes to paint a mural on the side. “I think it’s best for me to stay busy,” Sebelius says of his variety of art. “If it’s something that intrigues me, I jump into it. I’m not one to be just into one thing — I get bored.”
didn’t prevent this, though the county would have to buy back the property to designate it for public use. The property will be platted with the idea it will be used for industrial, “primary job-creator” uses.

What is the city code regarding smoking outside of a restaurant? How far do smokers have to be from the door?
Megan Gilliland, the city’s communications manager, said: According to the Kansas law that was passed in July 2010, smoking is prohibited within 10 feet of any doorway, open window or air intake of an establishment where smoking is prohibited.

LMH mulls opening wellness space at proposed rec center By Karrey Britt email@example.com
Lawrence Memorial Hospital is considering opening a wellness center in northwest Lawrence that would be part of a proposed $24 million, 160,000-square-foot recreation center. President and CEO Gene Meyer told the board Wednesday that the hospital has been approached by city leaders and developer Thomas Fritzel about being involved in the project, which would be on the northwest corners of Sixth Street and the South Lawrence Trafficway. The project’s plans also call for an outdoor track and field stadium and a soccer field that would be operated by Kansas University. “We felt that if the facility was going to contain some sort of a commitment to wellness that we wanted to be the ones involved,” he said. Karen Shumate, chief operating officer, gave a preliminary report about what kinds of services the wellness center might offer if it were to move forward with a partnership. They included:
Physical, occupational and speech therapy services
Diet and exercise classes
One-on-one wellness coaching
Sports performance enhancement programs
Screenings Shumate said they would like to target two populations: older adults and pediatrics. With the older adults, they would focus on screenings such

“This is just a concept,” Schumate told the board. “It’s very preliminary. A few board members raised concerns and questions after hearing the report. Dr. Lee Reussner questioned whether the recreation center would be primarily used by athletes or for the general public. Rob Chestnut wondered if the location really served the populations the hospital was trying to reach with its wellness efforts. He asked hospital administrators to consider other locations for a wellness center as well. Meanwhile, others wondered if LMH didn’t provide a wellness center at the site, would the developers approach someone else? Meyer said the developers have not given him a deadline for committing to the project. He also was uncertain if the hospital would own or lease the space. The hospital is currently putting together a report that would look at the up-front and operational costs of the wellness center. In the meantime, the hospital will continue to gather input from the community, its employees and patients. A new report on the wellness center project will be presented during the next board meeting, which is scheduled for Aug. 15. “A partnership with the city and with the athletic department is something that we would always want to try to achieve if it makes strategic and financial sense for us,” Meyer said.

The report provided a look at how the hospital might use the proposed 7,000-square-foot space:

ON THE RECORD
LAW ENFORCEMENT REPORT • Johnson County Sheriff’s officers are looking for suspects who stole 1,000 pounds of copper pipe over the weekend at the construction site of an addition to De Soto High School, said Master Deputy Tom Erickson, a sheriff’s spokesman. The pieces of pipe were 20 feet long, and they are valued at $6,000 total. Alvie Cater, a De Soto school district spokesman, said the school would install video cameras in the construction area in hope it could deter future crimes. • Douglas County Sheriff’s officers about 3 a.m. Wednesday arrested a Topeka man and a Topeka woman accused of trespassing and damaging railroad property north of Lecompton, said Sgt. Steve Lewis, a sheriff’s spokesman. Prosecutors later Wednesday charged John David Helm, 30, and Rebecca Sue Jaap, 32, with misdemeanor possession of stolen property. They also filed one count of trespassing on a railroad right of way against Helm, according to court records. A judge set $1,500

House committee holds A.G. Holder in contempt ———
Obama uses executive privilege to withhold documents from panel By Pete Yost Associated Press
WASHINGTON — Setting up a potential constitutional confrontation, a Republican-controlled House panel voted Wednesday to cite Attorney General Eric Holder for contempt of Congress, just hours after President Barack Obama invoked executive privilege — for the first time — to withhold documents demanded by the committee. The party-line vote was 23-17 following hours of caustic debate. The controversy goes next to the full House, where Republican Speaker John Boehner said there would be a vote next week unless there was some resolution in the meantime. Committee Chairman Darrell Issa of California said that “more than eight months after a subpoena” for the documents — which concern how the Justice Department learned there were problems with an Arizona probe of gun-running into Mexico — Obama’s “untimely assertion” of executive privilege was no reason to delay the contempt vote. No, it was just political, said Rep. Elijah Cummings of Maryland, the committee’s ranking Democrat. He called the vote “an extreme, virtually unprecedented action based on election-year politics rather than fact.” The last Cabinet member to be cited by a congressional committee for contempt was Attorney General Janet Reno in President Bill Clinton’s administration. That was never brought to a follow-
up vote in the full House. Technically, if the full House approves the Holder contempt citation, there could be a federal criminal case against him, but history strongly suggests the matter won’t get that far. Whether Congress could force the Justice Department to turn over the documents is a basic question. In the Watergate case, the Supreme Court ordered President Richard Nixon to turn over taped conversations to a criminal prosecutor. But in the Nixon case, the justices also found a constitutional basis for claims of executive privilege, leaving the door open for presidents to cite it in future clashes with Congress. In the administration’s claim of executive privilege, Deputy Attorney General James Cole said in a letter to Issa, “We regret that we have arrived at this point, after the many steps we have taken to address the committee’s concerns and to accommodate the committee’s legitimate oversight interests.” As the day went on, comments rapidly grew more heated. A Boehner spokesman suggested administration officials had lied earlier or were now “bending the law.” Cummings said Issa “had no interest” in resolving the issue and was trying to pick a fight. The White House reacted sharply to the committee action. “Instead of creating jobs or strengthening the middle-class, congressional Republicans are spending their time on a politically motivated, taxpayer-funded election-year fishing expedition,” Communications Director Dan Pfeiffer said.

Poll: Just 1 in 3 in favor of health care overhaul WASHINGTON (AP) — Just a third of Americans back President Barack Obama’s health care overhaul on which the Supreme Court is about to pass judgment, a new poll finds. But there is overwhelming support among both supporters and opponents for Congress and the president to begin work on a new bill if the high court strikes down the two-year-old law. The overall level of support for the law is relatively unchanged in recent months, with 47 percent opposing it. But an Associated Press-GfK poll shows Obama that only 21 percent of independents approve of the law, a new low in AP-GfK polling. The Supreme Court is expected to rule on the 2010 law in the next week or so. Most of the law’s major changes aimed at extending health insurance to more than 30 million Americans who now lack coverage have yet to take effect, including the requirement that most people have health insurance or pay a penalty. But whatever people think of the law, they don’t want a Supreme Court ruling against it to be the last word on health care reform. More than threefourths of Americans want their political leaders to undertake a new effort, rather than leave the health care system alone if the court rules against the law, according to the poll.

BUSINESS AT A GLANCE
Notable The Senate voted Wednesday not to tamper with the Depression-era program that protects U.S. sugar growers as it sped toward completion of a $500 billion bill to operate farm and food programs over the next five years. The sugar program, which controls supply levels, sets prices and limits imports, has long been a target of those who say the government supports agribusiness over the interests of consumers. A final vote on the bill is expected this morning, sending it to the House where it could face an uphill battle.

Fed extends program to drive rates lower By Martin Crutsinger Associated Press
WASHINGTON — The Federal Reserve is trying again to jolt the American economy out of its stalled recovery. It’s extending a program that aims to encourage borrowing and spending by reducing long-term interest rates. Wednesday’s decision followed months of concern that the economy is being held back by a weakened job market. At the end of a two-day policy meeting, the Fed also sharply reduced its forecast for U.S. growth and said it’s prepared to take more action if necessary. It reiterated plans to keep short-term interest rates at record lows until at least late 2014. “If we’re not seeing a sustained improvement in the labor market, that would require additional action,” Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke said later in the day. Wall Street wasn’t impressed by the Fed’s limited response. Stock prices barely budged. And analysts questioned how much benefit the Fed’s latest economy-boosting effort would have, in part because interest rates are already near record lows. If the Fed’s more pessimistic outlook proves accurate, President Barack Obama’s chances in an election that will turn on
the economy would also likely suffer. Bernanke noted that the economy is under threat from Europe’s debt crisis and the prospect of sharp spending cuts and tax increases that would take effect at the end of the year unless Congress acts. European leaders will be seeking a breakthrough at a summit next week in Brussels. Bernanke said he’s in regular touch with the head of the European Central Bank. The Fed said it will continue a program called Operation Twist through year’s end. Under the program, the Fed has been selling $400 billion in short-term Treasurys since September and buying longer-term Treasurys. Operation Twist was to expire at the end of June. The Fed said it will extend it using $267 billion in securities. But extending Operation Twist might not provide much benefit. Businesses and consumers who aren’t borrowing now aren’t that likely to change their minds just because rates dropped a little more. “This move is largely symbolic,” said David Jones, chief economist at DMJ Advisors.

Funding shift at KU The graphic below, provided by Kansas University, shows the dramatic shift in funding of higher education over the past 20 years in Kansas. In 1991, nearly 69 percent of operating expenses at KU per student was funded through state tax dollars, while 31 percent was funded with tuition. Now, only 38 percent is funded by the state, while tuition has increased to 62 percent. y

supported them, saying they were necessary to maintain quality. The increases for resident students will be Kansas State, 5.1 percent; Emporia State, 6.5 percent; Pittsburg State, 6.4 percent, Fort Hays State, 3.7 percent, and Wichita State, 3.5 percent. Regent Dan Lykins of Topeka said the cost of higher education and health care continues to skyrocket while salaries for many working Kansans have decreased. “Wealthy families will be able to afford this,” Lykins said of the tuition and fee hikes. “Poor families, hopefully, will be able to get grants. For the average Kansas family, this is going to be tough. I am worried about the future because as we continue to raise tuition, some student is going to say ‘I can’t afford to go to school anymore.’” Over the past 20 years, there has been a dramatic shift of funding higher education from state appropriations to tuition, according to data provided by KU. In 1991, nearly 69 percent of per student operating expenses at KU was funded through state tax dollars, while 31 percent was funded with tuition.
Now, only 38 percent is funded by the state, while tuition has increased to 62 percent. Regent Fred Logan Jr., of Prairie Village, said even though the increased costs are a burden on students and families, getting a degree “is the best investment that anyone can make.” Hannah Bolton, KU student body president, said the increases will help maintain the quality of the schools. “You want to invest in excellence,” Bolton said. But she added the increases are making it more difficult for many students. Bolton said many students have two jobs during the week and sometimes a third job on the weekend, and the competition for scholarships is increasing. The tuition and fee increases at KU will generate about $14 million in additional revenue. Of that amount, $6 million will be used for salary increases to retain faculty and staff, $3.7 million will cover required costs, such as health insurance, and $1.1 million will be used to provide grants to students with financial needs, while the rest will cover numerous other operating expenses. On the issue of admissions standards, the board voted 8-1 to approve KU’s request to set the bar higher. If new regulations
supporting the request are approved by December, then KU will start using the new standards in August 2016. “We have an aspiration to increase the graduation rate. We have an aspiration to increase the retention rate,” said KU Chancellor Bernadette Gray-Little. But Gray-Little said the school wasn’t trying to discourage applicants. “I want every student who can come to KU and have a good experience, to be at KU,” she said. 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 grade point average on a 4.0 scale in the Kansas Qualified Precollege Admissions curriculum. Under the new standards, to be automatically admitted to KU, students would have to apply by Feb. 1 and complete the pre-college curriculum with a GPA of 2.5 or higher, along with one of the following:
A minimum 3.0 cumulative GPA and an ACT score of at least 24 or 1090 SAT, or
A minimum 3.25 cu-
mulative GPA and an ACT score of 21 or 980 SAT. Students who don’t meet the automatic admissions 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. KU Provost Jeff Vitter said the higher standards will allow KU to capture “the high achiever students who leave Kansas” under the current standards, he said. Regent Janie Perkins of Garden City was the lone dissenter, saying she was concerned the higher criteria, especially the Feb. 1 deadline for consideration of automatic admission, would be a roadblock to some students. Gray-Little said students applying to KU before Feb. 1 had a much higher incidence of advancing to their sophomore year than those who apply after Feb. 1 — 81 percent to 57 percent. She said the ability of a student to apply earlier in his or her senior year of high school probably indicates that the student has more organizational skills and home supports. — Statehouse reporter Scott Rothschild can be reached at 785-423-0668.
BRIEFLY and the commission Election winner won’t won, was supposed to declare be announced today the top vote-getter today. CAIRO — Officials postponed declaring a winner in Egypt’s disputed election on Wednesday, sending political tensions soaring as the country awaited its first new president in three decades. Adding to the confusion and uncertainty were reports about the health of Hosni Mubarak, who is serving a life sentence for failing to stop the killing of protesters in the uprising that ousted him last year. At one point Tuesday, he was said to be near death, while some believed the report was a pretext by sympathetic allies of Mubarak to transfer him out of prison to a more comfortable facility. The Election Commission did not say when it would announce the winner of the runoff between the Muslim Brotherhood’s candidate, Mohammed Morsi, and Mubarak’s former prime minister, Ahmed Shafiq. Both candidates claim they
Sandusky defense rests in abuse case BELLEFONTE, PA. — The defense in Jerry Sandusky’s child sex abuse trial rested on its third day Wednesday without calling the former Penn State assistant coach to dispute charges that he molested boys at his home and on campus over more than a decade. Closing arguments were set for today in the case that led to the dismissal of Hall of Fame football coach Joe Paterno, the ouster of the university president and a re-examination of college administrators’ role in reporting abuse charges. The defense’s case has consisted of character witnesses who defended Sandusky’s reputation, a psychologist who said Sandusky had a personality disorder and the ex-coach’s wife, who said she did
not see her husband do anything inappropriate with the accusers. His lawyers showed that an investigator had shared information with an accuser about other alleged victims’ stories and repeatedly suggested that accusers have financial motivations for their claims. LeRoy Neiman in 2007

Historic hall Liberty Hall’s 100-year history in Lawrence certainly is worthy of celebration.
he building now known as Liberty Hall has seen a lot of Lawrence history — 100 years of Lawrence history, to be exact. The celebration of that milestone is an appropriate time to reflect on the role a building, and the people who build and preserve it, can play in a community. Buildings at the corner of what now is Seventh and Massachusetts streets didn’t fare so well during Lawrence’s turbulent early days. A building that housed the Herald of Freedom newspaper was burned by Sheriff Jones in his 1856 raid, and its replacement was burned in Quantrill’s 1863 raid. The first Liberty Hall was dedicated on the site in 1870 and became a center of Lawrence social and civic activity. J.D. Bowersock furthered the hall’s history by demolishing that building and replacing it with the elegant Bowersock Opera House, which was destroyed by fire in 1911. Vowing that the building would never go up in flames again, Bowersock rebuilt the structure one more time, and the current concrete and brick building now is celebrating its 100th birthday, with performances of The Flaming Lips and a street party from 1 p.m. to midnight Friday in the 700 block of Massachusetts. Over the years, as the Bowersock Opera House, the Dickinson Theater, the Red Dog Inn, the Lawrence Opera House, the building that now houses the reincarnated Liberty Hall has continued to serve as a community focal point, drawing a diverse group of local residents and students, perhaps numbering in the millions, through its doors. It was an opera house, a movie theater, a rock ’n’ roll venue and a dinner theater. Throughout its history it also has been a popular gathering place that promoted artistic endeavors, political engagement and community interaction. The current facility continues to serve all of those roles. It is a movie theater and a performance venue that also is available for private and public functions of almost every description. The community owes a huge debt of gratitude to David and Susan Millstein, Liberty Hall’s current owners, for the role they and the late Charlie Oldfather played in returning this community landmark to its rightful role. The building was vacant and in disrepair when Oldfather and the Millsteins purchased it in 1985 and put significant resources into restoring some of its original grandeur and energy. It’s been an eventful century for a grand structure that holds a lot of memories for several generations of Lawrence residents and visitors. We share the hope of Liberty Hall’s owners that “we can get another 100 years” out of this landmark structure in the heart of Lawrence.

‘Beach Boys’ rode California wave COLUMBIA, MD. — Three hours before showtime, Brian Wilson says: “There is no Rhonda.” Sitting backstage, gathering strength for the evening’s 48-song, 150-minute concert, Wilson was not asked about her, he just volunteered this fact. The other members of the Beach Boys seem mildly surprised to learn that the 1965 song “Help Me, Rhonda” was about no one in particular. Not that it matters; the sound is everything. Attention must be paid to baby boomer music-cued nostalgia, and no one pays it better than the Beach Boys. They are current-
Given California’s dystopian present, it is difficult to recall that the Beach Boys’ appeal derived not just from their astonishing harmonies … but also from their embodiment of a happy Southern California that beckoned to the rest of the nation.” ly on a 50th-anniversary tour that has more than 60 concerts scheduled and others still being booked. Their new album, “That’s Why God Made the Radio,” debuted at No. 3 in Billboard’s listing, and with this the Beach Boys topped the Beatles for most weeks on Billboard’s top-10 album chart. Their band began in 1961 in Hawthorne, in Los Angeles County, when the parents of Brian, Dennis and Carl Wilson went away for a weekend, leaving the boys with meal money they used to rent instruments and record a song called “Surfin’.” They rode a wave of fascination with California to the top of pop music.
Given California’s dystopian present, it is difficult to recall that the Beach Boys’ appeal derived not just from their astonishing harmonies (which derived from the Four Freshmen) but also from their embodiment of a happy Southern California that beckoned to the rest of the nation. Political scientist James Q. Wilson grew up there and in 1967, the year after the Beach Boys’ “Good Vibrations,” he wrote a seminal essay on the political vibrations that produced California’s new governor: “A Guide to Reagan Country.” Wilson’s conclusion was that Ronald Reagan represented the political culture of a region where social structure nurtured individualism. Southern Californians had, Wilson wrote, “no identities except their personal identities, no obvious group affiliations to make possible any reference to them by collective nouns. I never heard the phrase ‘ethnic group’ until I was in graduate school.” Eastern teenagers had turf. Their Southern California counterparts had cars, the subject of so many Beach Boys songs (“Little Deuce Coupe,” “409,” “Shut Down,” etc.). They hung out in places reached by car and with lots of parking, particularly
drive-in restaurants. “The Eastern lifestyle,” Wilson wrote, “produced a feeling of territory, the Western lifestyle a feeling of property.” The East was defined less by cold weather than social congestion — apartments in ethnic neighborhoods. Southern Californians lived in singledwelling homes and had almost no public transportation, so their movements within the city were unconfined to set corridors. Houses and cars — the “Sunday afternoon drive” was often just to look at others’ homes — strengthened, Wilson wrote, “a very conventional and bourgeois sense of property and responsibility.” When James Watt, Reagan’s secretary of the interior, barred the Beach Boys from playing a Fourth of July concert on the National Mall in 1983 because he thought they attracted “the wrong element,” Reagan invited them to the White House. This was almost a generation after the Beach Boys were dethroned but invigorated by the challenge of the British Invasion, particularly the Beatles. Brian Wilson has long been troubled by mental illness, but he responded to the challenge of the Beatles album “Rubber Soul” with “Pet Sounds,” including “God Only Knows,”
King’s question not foolish There was always something hapless about Rodney King. He entered the nation’s consciousness — and its conscience — as a shambling drunk, an unemployed black construction worker who tried to outrun L.A. police rather than be arrested for drunken driving. The result was a police beating, surreptitiously captured on video, so profoundly vicious that the chief of police himself said it made him sick. In 1992, when a suburban jury, conspicuously bleached of black jurors, acquitted four white police officers of any crime, the City of Angels went to hell, erupting in one of the worst urban riots in modern American history. Haplessness thereafter attached to King like a stink, as he bounced in and out of the news for domestic violence, drunken run-ins with police, driving into a tree under the influence of PCP. Even the manner of his death Sunday has about it that familiar odor of haplessness. King is believed to have accidentally drowned in his backyard pool. If true, isn’t that about what you would have expected? Hapless could have been his middle name. But there was a moment, a signature moment, when Rodney Glen King was not hapless. You remember it, of course: Los Angeles is burning, the death toll is mounting, property damage is approaching $1 billion, the National Guard is trying to restore peace, the Red Cross is trying to help the stricken, and there comes King, shaken and uncertain, agony on his face and tears in his voice, pleading for peace and
Leonard Pitts Jr.
‘Can we all get along?’ There was something almost unforgivably earnest about that question, something guileless, naked, even innocent.” asking a question deceptive in its simplicity: “Can we all get along?” There was something almost unforgivably earnest about that question, something guileless, naked, even innocent. It came with no smirk of mocking subtext, no nudge of ironic knowing, no wink of post-modern detachment. It came from the heart, and some of us did not know how to process that. Perhaps that’s why they transfigured it, removed it from the realm of serious things, made it a catchphrase, a cliche, the punch line to a joke no one had told. As a rule, history has shown flawless judgment in picking icons for AfricanAmerica’s struggle for human rights. It chose quiet, dignified Rosa Parks as the emblem of the fight against segregation. It chose handsome, prankish Emmett Till as the face of racial violence. So perhaps King seems an odd choice as the symbol of police brutality. But there is a
reason Shakespeare put wisdom into the mouths of fools. The fool could get away with saying what others could not. No, King was not a fool. But he was a hapless guy, taken less than seriously — in part because he asked that question others would not. Yet that question, the one some of us tried to giggle into irrelevance, is the defining question of the American experiment. It follows us down 236 years of slavery, restrictive housing covenants, lynchings, suffragettes, Trails of Tears, English Only debates, No Irish Need Apply signs, Stonewall uprisings, sexism, anti-Semitism, racism, riot, wreck and ruin. Can we all get along? King, a more reflective man than stereotype — and his own behavior — would lead you to believe understood the unique symbolism his life and that question had conferred upon him. “I sometimes feel like I’m caught in a vise,” he told the Los Angeles Times earlier this year. “Some people feel like I’m some kind of hero. Others hate me. They say I deserved it. Other people, I can hear them mocking me for when I called for an end to the destruction, like I’m a fool for believing in peace.” It is telling that more of us seemed to deride his question than sought to answer it. Perhaps they feared what the answer would be. Perhaps they found it easier just to laugh it down. But if the man who believes we must all get along is a fool, then you really have to wonder: What word is left for the man who does not? — Leonard Pitts Jr. is a columnist for the Miami Herald.
which Paul McCartney called “the greatest song ever written.” The Beatles’ “Sgt. Pepper” was a response to “Pet Sounds.” Leonard Bernstein called Brian Wilson, the Beach Boys’ creative engine, “one of today’s most important musicians,” and the Joffrey Ballet danced to Wilson’s music. Dennis and Carl Wilson died long ago, but today’s band includes three original members — Brian, Al Jardine and Mike Love — plus David Marks, who grew up down the street from the Wilsons, and Bruce Johnston, “the new guy” who first joined the group in 1965. The Beatles dissolved in 1970; the Beach Boys are the first American band to enter a second half-century. Boomers must be served, so Mick Jagger, who long ago said, “I’d rather be dead than sing ‘Satisfaction’ when I’m 45,” is singing it at 68. In 1966, the 31-year-old Elvis Presley asked the Beach Boys for advice about touring; he has been dead for nearly 35 years but they play on, all of them approaching or past 70, singing “When I Grow Up (to Be a Man)” without a trace of irony. Southern California in their formative years was not zoned for irony. — George Will is a columnist for Washington Post Writers Group.

Against long odds and strong competition from other states, KanYEARS sas was hoping to AGO land a $4.4 billion IN 1987 federal superconducting supercollider project at a site surrounding Pomona Lake. The proposed supercollider, which was being wooed by about 25 states, was expected to bring about 3,000 new skilled jobs as well as 4,500 temporary construction jobs.
The intersection of Ninth and Massachusetts was the busy spot YEARS for construction AGO this week as the IN 1972 downtown beautification project continued. While installing new feeder lines from the water main along the west side of Mass, workers had discovered many rusting connections.
From the Lawrence Daily Journal-World for June 21, 1912: YEARS “Thirty-five acres AGO of Douglas county IN 1912 lands are devoted to public parks, according to the report of the county assessor. In addition to this there are private, ornamental grounds amounting to seventeen acres. There are ten ponds and lakes in the county which cover a total of 333 1/2 acres. There are sixty-four school houses in the county with a total of 77 acres of school grounds.... Wild timber, 6,922 acres; street trees, 10,394; vegetable gardens, 320 acres; fruit trees of fruit-bearing age, 159,971; cemeteries, 166 1/2 acres.” — Compiled by Sarah St. John

‘Water baby’ indeed Ann Reaney remembers well the day she took baby Emma home from the hospital. “I went to the sink to wash off her head because it was ick,” Ann said. “I held the back of her head and used the sprayer, and her head rolled back, and she was just happy as a clam. I knew right then she was going to be a water baby. She just loved it.” She didn’t know that as a teenager Emma would for the second time compete in the Olympic trials after a record-breaking freshman season at Notre Dame. Emma’s mom was no water baby. Her dad, Mark Reaney, a professor of in the department of Theater and Film and an award-winning scenic designer, figures out ways to incorporate computer graphics into theatre designs, not ways to Reaney program his daughter into an elite swimmer. “I’m so thankful they don’t really know swimming,” Emma said of her parents. “When I was younger, I would have an awful race, and they’d be right there saying, ‘Good job. That was great.’ Some other parents would yell at their kids.” Wait, hold on a minute. There are swim parents who get too wrapped up in the performance of their children? “It’s so sad,” said Emma, who competed as a sophomore at Lawrence High, broke records, but missed the state meet because of strep throat. “There are some crazy swim parents, kind of like dance moms.” You mean there are some mothers who pressure their daughters to try to become the next Shirley Temple, Ginger Rogers or Madonna? This all comes as such a shock. An honorable mention AllAmerican in the 200 individual medley, her best event, and the 100 and 200 breaststroke, Emma also qualified for the trials in the 400 IM. Notre Dame will have seven women and 12 men, by Reaney’s count, competing in the trials in Omaha, Neb. They leave Saturday, and Reaney’s first event is Monday. She competed four years ago in Omaha as well. “I was 15 and all alone,” she said. “I was like a lost puppy. Now I’ll have all my teammates with me, and we’re traveling with the guys’ team, too, so we’ll all be hanging out together. It will be really cool.” Swimmers can peak early. Reaney, during her final years of club swimming, had to be wondering when she stopped setting personal bests at a rapid rate. At ND, she rattled off several and attributed it partly to lifting weights for the first time. “And it helps training with girls who are focused and are my same speed,” she said. “In club swimming, there are a lot of younger kids, and some parents are making their kids be there. It’s so sad because it’s such a time- and money-consuming sport. If you don’t like it, why would you want to do it?” Because your mom and/or dad has intimidated you into thinking your role in life is to let them live vicariously through you. That’s why.

Bullpen saves K.C.’s 2-1 win HOUSTON (AP) — The Kansas City Royals figure their offense will come around sooner or later. Until then, they’re happy to rely on a bullpen that keeps helping them eke out close wins.

Manager Ned Yost smiled when asked what all these close games are doing to him. “I’m fine. Piece of cake. We had them all the way,” he said. Chen (6-6) struck out six in 52⁄3 innings and was charged with one run and five hits. Pitching on three days’ rest for the sixth time in his career, Chen bounced back from his last outing when he yielded six runs and seven hits in just 12⁄3 innings against St. Louis, but still received a no-decision in the Royals’ 10-7 loss. Houston put runners on the corners with one out in the ninth, but Jonathan Broxton struck out Brian Bixler and retired Jordan Schafer to earn his 18th save in 21 chances. “They’ve been doing it all year, and once again they came up big today,” Gordon said of the bullpen. “A 2-1 win, it feels like we’ve been doing that all year.

Collins relocating to town By Gary Bedore email@example.com
Former Kansas University point guard Sherron Collins, who has been rehabilitating a sprained knee that sidelined him at the end of the 2011-12 Turkish Basketball League season, has decided to relocate from Chicago to Lawrence to get in what he hopes will be the best shape of his life. “I’ll be here all summer,” the 5-foot-11, 220-or-so-pound Collins said with a smile after playing sparingly in the Red (alumni plus some current KU players) Team’s 64-57 loss
to the Blue squad (all current players) on Wednesday in front of 800 Bill Self campers in Horejsi Center. “There’s not a better place to work out — with people that love you and want you to succeed. Hudy (Andrea, KU trainer), coach (Bill) Self, coach (Joe) Dooley, coach T (Kurtis Townsend), the whole staff ... they help me. It’s something I need.” Collins, who missed five shots without a make, said Hudy is the key to his possible return to the NBA. Collins played sparingly for Charlotte two seasons ago before getting
cut and moving to Turkey, where he averaged 10.6 points a game for a team in Ankara. “Hudy is great for me, like a second mom. I always said that,” Collins said. “Anything I need from her, whatever time, Hudy has always been there for me. She’s the best at the college level. Every player she’s had from UConn to here ... her résumé speaks for herself. She’s great for me, man. I tell her all the time that she knows how to kick my butt and make me feel good about it.” Please see COLLINS, page 3B

LCC teaching pro Samp to coach LHS By Benton Smith firstname.lastname@example.org
Kristen Samp didn’t know it, but her time as a teaching professional at Lawrence Country Club is about to take her varied golf background in a new direction. Currently in her fourth year as a Class A teaching pro at LCC, Samp played collegiately at the University of
Missouri and professionally for 11 years before eventually settling in Lawrence in 2009. She has worked with countless golfers since joining the LCC staff. Among them were a couple of Lawrence High Lions, Quillen Eichhorn and Campbell Drake. When the two Lawrence teammates found out Mike Lewis would be stepping down as LHS girls golf
coach, they reached out to Samp and told her she should apply for the job. Not wanting to let the girls down, Samp said she would look into it, found an online application, filled it out and submitted it. It didn’t take LHS athletics director Ron Commons long to determine Samp was the obvious choice. “We feel her teaching
background, from LPGA players to junior programs at LCC, will be a great asset in helping our team reach the next level of play,” Commons said. “We are looking forward to having her as part of our coaching staff.” The new gig will be a fresh experience for Samp, who Kristen Samp has helped college teams in will coach the LHS girls golf Please see SAMP, page 3B team this fall

BCS bosses settle on playoff plan CHICAGO (AP) â€” The BCS commissioners are backing a playoff plan with the sites for the national semifinals rotating among the major bowl games and a selection committee picking the teams. The plan will be presented to university presidents next week for approval. Once the presidents sign off â€” and that seems likely â€” major-college footballâ€™s champion will be decided by a playoff for the first time come the 2014 season. â€œWe are excited to be on the threshold of creating a new postseason structure for college football that builds on the great popularity of our sport,â€? Notre Dame Athletic Director Jack Swarbrick said Wednesday. All 11 commissioners stood shoulder-to-shoulder behind Swarbrick, who read the BCS statement from a podium set up in a hotel conference room. â€œI think weâ€™re very unified,â€? Big Ten Commissioner Jim Delany said. â€œThere are issues that have yet to be finalized.â€? The commissioners have been working on reshaping college footballâ€™s postseason since January. The meeting Wednesday was the sixth formal get-togeth-
NCAA doles out tourney APR bans INDIANAPOLIS (AP) â€” The NCAAâ€™s new academic requirements could give new meaning to the madness of March. On Wednesday, three-time national champion Connecticut and nine other menâ€™s basketball teams were banned from the NCAA Tournament because of poor Academic Progress Rate scores. The penalties affect seven conferences, each of which must adapt to a new landscape for their league tournaments. Four conferences â€” the Big East, Big West, Ohio Valley, Southland and Southwest Athletic â€” said the banned teams cannot compete in their league tournaments. Joining the Huskies on the sideline next March will be Arkansas-Pine Bluff, CaliforniaRiverside, Cal State Bakersfield, Jacksonville State, Mississippi Valley State, North CarolinaWilmington, Texas A&M-Corpus Christi, Toledo and Towson. Cal State Bakersfield, which became a full-fledged Division I member in 2010-11 and doesnâ€™t have a conference affiliation in basketball, could still be removed from the banned list because some of the schoolâ€™s data is still being reviewed. Each of the record 10 schools fell below the mandated fouryear cutline of 900 or the twoyear cutline of 930 and will face additional sanctions. UConn, which had a four-year score of 889 and a two-year score of 902, must replace four hours of practice time with academic activities each week. The APR measures the classroom performance of every Division I team. This yearâ€™s data calculates rates from 2007-08 through 2010-11. Naturally, UConn drew the most attention as the first BCS school to face a postseason ban based solely on sub-par academics. The Huskies have been an NCAA Tourney regular since 1990, winning 48 postseason games and national titles in 1999, 2004 and 2011. Only three football teams received postseason bans â€” Hampton, North Carolina A&T and Texas Southern. All are members of the Football Championship Subdivision and are considered historically black colleges or universities. In all, 54 teams fell below the 900 mark with roughly 80 percent (43) of them coming from what the NCAA defines as limited-resource schools.

IN THIS JAN. 9 FILE PHOTO, THE COACHESâ€™ TROPHY IS DISPLAYED before the BCS National Championship game between LSU and Alabama in New Orleans. The BCS commissioners met Wednesday and committed to a playoff plan, which will be presented to university presidents next week. er of the year. They met for four hours and emerged with a commitment to stand behind a plan. They refrained from providing specifics of that new structure in their announcement. Pac-12 Commissioner Larry Scott did say the two semifinals would be worked into the existing major bowls and the site of the national championship game will be bid out similarly to the Super Bowl.
People with firsthand knowledge of the decision tell the Associated Press the semifinals of the proposed plan would rotate among the major bowls and not be tied to traditional conference relationships. They also said that under the plan a selection committee would choose the schools that play for the national title. The people spoke on condition of anonymity because the
commissioners did not want to reveal many details before talking to their bosses. There was some debate about whether to have semifinal sites rotate between the major bowls or link the sites of the games to traditional conference affiliations. By linking sites to leagues Southeastern Conference teams could host games at the Sugar Bowl in New Orleans and Pac12 and Big Ten teams could host games at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, Calif. But the logistical issues that come with not having the sites for the semifinals set in advance were too big a problem. Now it will be possible for Ohio State and Oregon to play a semifinal in Miami, the site of the Orange Bowl. How the teams will be selected has also been hotly debated; the current Bowl Championship Series uses a combination of polls and computer rankings. There are still major details to be worked out, such as who exactly makes up the selection committee, but college football will take a page from college basketball, which uses a committee of athletic directors and commissioners to pick the teams for its championship tournament.

Managers feud over pine tar WASHINGTON â€” Davey Johnson says Joe Maddon should â€œread the rulebook.â€? Maddon says the rulebook shouldnâ€™t always rule in the â€œself-policingâ€? world of major-league baseball. The managers of the Washington Nationals and Tampa Bay Rays still didnâ€™t see eye-to-eye Wednesday about Johnsonâ€™s decision to challenge Tampa Bay reliever Joel Peraltaâ€™s glove in Washingtonâ€™s 5-4 loss the night before. The umpires found pine tar on Peraltaâ€™s glove. He was ejected from the game and expects to be suspended by Major League Baseball. Peralta used to play for the Nationals, and Maddon doesnâ€™t like the fact that Johnson used â€œinsider informationâ€? to get the pitcher ejected. Maddon said baseball players police themselves and have essentially decided that using pine tar is OK, even if itâ€™s officially cheating.
Malkin wins NHLâ€™s MVP award Vikingsâ€™ Harvin asks for trade LAS VEGAS â€” Pittsburgh Penguins center Evgeni Malkin has won the Hart Trophy as the NHLâ€™s most valuable player. The Russian superstar and NHL scoring champion won the Hart for the first time Wednesday night at the NHL Awards ceremony at the Wynn Las Vegas casino. Malkin beat out Tampa Bay Lightning forward Steven Stamkos and New York Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist, who won the Vezina Trophy for the first time. Ottawaâ€™s Erik Karlsson won the Norris Trophy as the NHLâ€™s top defenseman, and Coloradoâ€™s Gabriel Landeskog won the Calder Trophy as the top rookie. Malkin had 50 goals and 59 assists while carrying the Penguins during Sidney Crosbyâ€™s extended injury absence. He won the Hart vote over Stamkos, who scored 60 goals to win the Richard Trophy.

Pacquiao wants rematch with Bradley to reclaim title MANILA, PHILIPPINES â€” Manny Pacquiao says he wants a rematch with Timothy Bradley after a five-judge panel assembled by the WBO championship committee unanimously favored the Filipino fighter in a video review. Pacquiao said Thursday he would prefer a rematch rather than Bradley giving up the WBO welterweight title that he won on a split decision because â€œpeople may think I just usurped it.â€? The five judges on the review panel all scored the fight in Pacquiaoâ€™s favor â€” 117-111, 117-111, 118-110, 116-112 and 115-113. At the June 9 bout in Las Vegas, judge Jerry Roth had it 115-113 for Pacquiao, and Duane Ford and C.J. Ross had it for Bradley by the same score.

Harvin did go through a light walk-through practice with the team Wednesday morning, but he wasnâ€™t present for the longer afternoon session that he participated in Tuesday. Harvin has requested a trade for unspecified reasons. Vikings GM Rick Spielman says the team has no interest in trading its star receiver.
DT Stroud retires as Jaguar JACKSONVILLE, FLA. â€” Three-time Pro Bowl defensive tackle Marcus Stroud is retiring after a decade in the NFL. Stroud plans to sign a one-day contract with the Jacksonville Jaguars today before calling it quits. A first-round draft pick from Georgia in 2001, Stroud spent seven years in Jacksonville. Teamed with John Henderson, Stroud gave the Jaguars one of the most formidable defensive fronts in football between 2002 and 2006.

Collins CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1B
The 25-year-old Collins said he’s going to play summer league basketball for a yet-to-be-determined NBA team this July. “The plan is go somewhere and make some money. The plan is the NBA. We’re on schedule for that, working up to that,” Collins said. “I have a chance to get there. If things don’t work out, we’ll find somewhere else to play and try again. It’s a process, always a process.” Of Turkey he said: “It was all right. It was a different chapter of basketball over there, not the same as the NBA, a little rougher, actually. I think it prepares people for the NBA. “My funniest story ever,” Collins added, “was my first night there. It’s a Muslim religious country. It was like 5 in the morning. ... I had jetlag and couldn’t sleep. That’s when this noise came. I called my coach. I said, ‘Am I all right? I’m scared.’ He said, ‘No, just pray. It (noise in the streets) is telling people to pray.’ He told me to pray, so every time it came on I just prayed. It was crazy.” Collins had discovered the “Call to Prayer,” which takes place several times a day in Turkey.
Langford scores 24: Former KU guard Keith Langford, who played for Israel Maccabi Tel Aviv last season, scored a game-high 24 points for the losing Red team. For part of the game, he guarded his brother Justin Wesley, who returned the favor and guarded Keith. “It was interesting. A couple times I had to do an ‘old man foul’ because he’s incredibly athletic,” the 6-4 Langford said of the 6-9 Wesley, who scored four points, including a vicious dunk off a pass from Naadir Tharpe that gave the Blue team a 60-54 lead in crunch time. “He’s a lot bigger than me. It’s interesting to see him grow and develop into what he’s become,” Langford added. At one point, Langford called for Wesley’s teammates to pass his brother the ball in the paint. “I knew he wasn’t going to hold me off and I was going to be able to get around and cheat and get a couple steals,” Langford said. “He has a

Tharpe hits for 10: KU sophomore point guard Naadir Tharpe scored 10 points for the winners. He drilled a clutch three that gave the Blues a 56-52 lead and fed Ben McLemore (16 points) for a vicious dunk that gave the Blues a 6254 advantage. McLemore scored what proved to be the winning bucket off a rebound, erasing a 52-51 deficit. “It was good. We wanted to beat those guys,” Tharpe said. “Russell (Robinson, two points), Sherron, all those guys that were here … we wanted to show them, ‘You know, you guys are the old dudes. We are the new young dudes in line right now.’ We were just stepping up to the challenge.” Of his big three late, Tharpe said: “I was trying to put ’em away. I said I was ready to close the curtain early.”
Doyle’s day: KU freshman Milt Doyle hit two threes and scored eight points for the winners. “It feels good to play with them, learn from their experience, get a good ‘learn’ in,” Doyle said with a smile, referring to the KU alumni players. He guarded Langford at times. “Man, it was hard. He didn’t really miss today,” Doyle said of Langford, who hit nine of 15 shots and swished three threes. Doyle impressed in front of 1,000 or so fans. “I knew Milton when
nobody knew Milton. I knew he was going to be good,” said Collins, who, like Doyle, is a Chicago native. “I knew him when he was at Tilden High School before he transferred to Marshall (two years ago). I think he’ll be a good player here. I think he needs to get a little bit stronger (he’s 6-4, 175). He’s a player who can do it all and help the team.” Doyle, by the way, said he prefers the name “Milt” to “Milton.”
This, that: McLemore opened the scoring with a vicious dunk after a drive down the lane ... Perry Ellis’ only bucket came off a spin move in the lane. ... Chicagoan Doyle hit Chicagoan Jamari Traylor with a pinpoint pass in the lane for a layup ... McLemore iced a three from the corner. ... Doyle had a steal and a dunk on the other end. ... Collins will sign autographs of the book “Beyond the Phog” from 3-5 p.m. Saturday at Dillons, 3000 W. 6th Street.

the past but has never had an official position with any program. She anticipates coaching a high school team will be a change of pace. “Certainly the level of play is different,” Samp said. “When you’re at a college, you’re pretty serious about it.” At the high school level, she pointed out, players have different motiva-
tions for competing. “Some of them are doing it because they love golf, and some are doing it because they need things to put on their résumé, which is a very acceptable, valid reason.” On the varsity level, LHS has an experienced group coming back. Eichhorn and Drake, as well as Attie Pennybaker, Anna Wright and Abigail Schmidtberger, helped the Lions finish ninth at the 2011 Class 6A state tournament. “There are some very talented players return-
ing,” Samp said, adding she would like Lawrence to return to state and contend this fall. The new coach hopes to impart much of her golf knowledge and said a lot of that will come by sharing her tournament experiences from her days in the LPGA and on the LPGA Futures tour, as well as the college level. “A lot of them have very good golf swings,” Samp said of the returning LHS players. “They just need to be able to keep those swings and improve at tournaments.”

Miami on brink ————
LeBron & Co. one win from title MIAMI (AP) — LeBron James has never been here before. He’s been in nearly every imaginable situation everything over his nine seasons marked by three MVP awards, three trips to the NBA Finals with two teams and one decision that changed everything. And now this: For the first time, he’s one win from a championship. “I have a job to do,” James said Wednesday. “And my job is not done.” The job might get done tonight, when the Miami Heat — up 3-1 in this title series — host the Oklahoma City Thunder in Game 5 of the finals. Even after leaving Game 4 late with a cramp, James is on the cusp of finally becoming a champ. He was swept in his first finals trip in 2007, then he and the Heat fell in the 2011 title series in six games. After countless ups and downs, the 804th game of his career may be the one that ends his title quest. “I have no idea what I’ll say before we go out there,” said James, who got treatment again Wednesday but said soreness that followed the cramps in his left leg was easing. “It kind of just comes to me when I’m getting ready to go out there and stand on the floor. But hopefully whatever I say will inspire our

guys to go out and give a good show.” James joined the Heat in 2010 after Miami convinced him that he would have enough help to win a championship — more specifically, that he wouldn’t have to carry the load by himself, like he did so many times in Cleveland over his first seven seasons. The Heat were keeping Dwyane Wade, adding Chris Bosh and filling out the roster with a mix that would be best described as unconventional. If that axiom — more options are better — actually needed to be proven, it was done in Game 4. James could not finish the game, though he returned after the first wave of cramps hit and delivered a key 3-pointer. With James watching the final minute, Wade and Mario Chalmers helped close out the Thunder,
Sounders settle for draw with K.C. SEATTLE (AP) — Jacob Peterson scored on a deflected shot in the eighth minute for Sporting Kansas City, and Patrick Ianni’s electrifying volley goal just a few minutes later was enough for the Seattle Sounders to earn a draw 1-1 on Wednesday night. Kansas City is unbeaten in its last four matches — two wins and two draws — and continues to inch toward the top of Major League Soccer’s Eastern Conference. Meanwhile, the Sounders are slumping, winless in their last six league matches and with a rivalry game at Portland Sunday. Seattle nearly pulled out the victory in the 88th minute when Fredy Montero’s shot beat goalkeeper Jimmy Nielsen, but deflected off both posts and stayed out of the net. The physical game took an ugly turn during secondhalf stoppage time when Seattle’s Alvaro Fernandez was given a red card for his retaliatory tackle on Roger Espinoza. There was pushing and shoving throughout the night and plenty of complaints for referee Jair Marrufo, but only a few cards shown.

We don’t feel like we’ve played our best game yet, and we feel that’s still to come.”

dren should be encouraged to support themselves as soon as they are finished with their education. Those who go on to obtain advanced degrees should find some type of part-time job or take out student loans. It is OK to help a child with temporary financial difficulties, but not to the extent that the child becomes dependent on the parents. Once you marry, decisions about money should be made jointly. If your future husband will not discuss these
Special night for Bieber Justin Bieber gets his first network special, “Justin Bieber: All Around the World” (7 p.m., NBC). The teenage Canadian singer, discovered on YouTube and mentored by Usher, will wear a special “Justin-cam” to reveal how life unfolds from his celebrated perspective. ‘‘World” will offer a behindthe-scenes look at his international tour, whisking the popular singer through seven countries in 12 days as he thrills fans with songs from his new album “Believe.” The latest in a decades-long succession of boyish, inoffensive pop stars sporting astoundingly similar hairdos, Bieber would not be out of place in the pop pantheon of his fans’ parents or even grandparents. In fact, when C h a r l e s Laufer, the founder and publisher of Tiger Beat magazine, died last year, one of his obituaries noted how the Tiger Beat stars of the 1960s and ‘70s — Bobby Sherman, David Cassidy and the Monkees — all bore striking resemblance to Justin Bieber, the Tiger Beat cover boy of the moment. Bieber will also be on “Late Show With David Letterman” (10:35 p.m., CBS) tonight, along with comedian Michael Ian Black.
Tattoos, once the province of sailors and itinerant carnival workers, have become ubiquitous means of self-expression. But unlike questionable hairdos or outrageous clothing, they are indelible and more painful to remove than apply. Anecdotal evidence also suggests that these “artistic” choices are often made under the influences of intoxicating spirits and peer pressure. Is it any wonder that “America’s Worst Tattoos” (9 p.m., TLC) has arrived with a pathetic parade of ludicrous skin art? One woman interviewed here passed out thinking she was having a glowing moon inscribed on her lower back, only to awaken sporting something that her friends described as a sad and angry version of the Cookie Monster. Apparently, her tattoo artist was a heroin addict between fixes. According to our unfortunate victim, the woman sporting the hot needle just wasn’t “high enough” to get the job done right. Others’ tattoos reflect perfectly executed versions of very dubious, and immediately regrettable, choices.
Tonight’s other highlights
Charlie’s chances improve on “Saving Hope” (8 p.m., NBC).
The Heat hosts the Thunder in the 2012 NBA Finals (8 p.m., ABC).
Michael takes on a drug cartel on “Burn Notice” (8 p.m., USA).

things with you now, he is not likely to consult you later. You are smart to recognize the problem. We recommend premarital counseling. Dear Annie: My granddaughter is getting married in September. After 31 years of marriage, her parents were divorced nine years ago (his infidelity) in a nasty battle over money. Her father, who remarried two years ago, insists that his new wife’s name be on the wedding invitation. This suggests she raised my granddaughter, which she didn’t. My granddaughter is distraught over this. I’ve checked the etiquette books, and in case of divorce, the bride’s mother’s name and father’s name should be on separate lines inviting guests to attend the wedding. The father’s new wife doesn’t appear anywhere. My daughter told my

For Thursday, June 21: This year you choose to walk away from negativity, as it could impact your personal or domestic life. If you are single, you might meet someone quite special in several months. If you are attached, spend more one-on-one time together. 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) You choose to weigh matters carefully without expounding or discussing the issues with others. You see the negatives and wonder if it is worth your effort to continue on this path. Tonight: Unwind with some fun. Taurus (April 20-May 20) You are open to conversations, but what happens when you hear something you don’t want to? Do you close down? You might want to nix that response. Tonight: Make it early. Gemini (May 21-June 20) You might be questioning whether the saying “Money is the root of all evil” could be true. Be careful if you are about to take a risk. Tonight: Head home. Return calls. Cancer (June 21-July 22) Your charisma and high energy attract many people, despite an underlying issue that you choose not to address. Make an important call with the full expectation of seeing results. Tonight: Be spontaneous. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) Stand back, and let others reveal their true colors. You could feel negatively about one person you do not see in his or her true

WHAT’S NEW WITH YOU? By Thomas Whittington
granddaughter that if Dad will not relent, she should have the invitations go out under the names of the bride and groom without mentioning the parents at all. What is the appropriate thing to do? Is the bride wrong to want only her mother’s and father’s names on the invitation? — Maria from Ohio Dear Maria: If Mom and Dad are sharing the costs of the wedding, both of their names and, yes, those of their spouses should appear on the invitation. If Dad is not contributing, his name need not appear at all. However, many brides want both parents’ names on the invitation regardless of who is hosting the event, in which case, the spouses of the parents ACROSS should be included. — Send questions to email@example.com, or Annie’s Mailbox, P.O.

light. Tonight: Rethink what you observed today. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) A meeting or get-together helps you zero in on what you want. Let a moment of insecurity be just that — fleeting. Tonight: Out with friends. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) Pressure builds, and you feel as if you cannot see the light of day. Don’t worry — you will. Tonight: Take a break. Visit with a friend. Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) Sometimes you see clearly, but other times a haze invades. Understand that you might need to detach more to understand a personal matter. Tonight: Choose something different. Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) You could be disappointed by a certain situation. Let go, and do not dwell on the negatives. Tonight: Start thinking “weekend.” Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Continue to defer to others, and allow them to do what they want. This attitude is not your normal approach. Tonight: Chat and visit over dinner. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) When you are focused, no one can complete a job as you can. A partner or dear friend really wants your attention. Tonight: Run errands first. Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) You are already thinking about a loved one and how you might like to spend some time with him or her. Sort through calls and make a point of listening to suggestions and invitations. Tonight: Enjoy the moment. — The astrological forecast should be read for entertainment only.

Dear Annie: I am engaged to a man who was divorced 20 years ago. He has three grown sons. The first two are doing well, but the third is still not financially responsible at the age of 30. His father has to pay off his automobile and credit cards. My fiance also helps out his siblings, who seem to be quite irresponsible and alcoholic. I come from a large family, and we each were told that at age 21, we were on our own. We all obtained professional degrees and now help our parents. At what age does a parent allow a child to grow up and become responsible? It appears to me that my future will be forever intertwined with relatives who are begging us for money. My fiance won’t discuss this matter with me. What should I do? — Engaged but Having Second Thoughts Dear Engaged: Chil-

is going to get rolling and we’re going to start giving the bullpen a rest. Hopefully it will come soon.” Yost was impressed with Broxton’s poise in the ninth. “The thing about him is he doesn’t panic,” Yost said. “He stays calm and continues to make pitches.” Kansas City’s pitchers have been particularly good late in games, posting a major league-best 1.31 ERA in the ninth inning or later. That performance has helped make up for an offense that has scored the second-fewest runs in the American League. “We’ll start putting some big numbers up, but these wins are important, too,” third baseman Mike Moustakas said. “These 2-1 wins, these nail-biters give us a lot of momentum going home.” Houston starter Jordan Lyles (1-4) gave up two runs and three hits in seven innings. He has bounced around between the Astros and Triple-A Oklahoma City this season. “I’ve been looking for an outing where I can just turn that corner,” Lyles said. “Hopefully, this was it and that’s what I’m striving for. It is big because I know I can pitch up here and get outs.” The Astros had eight hits, compared to just four for Kansas City, but they went 1-for-12 with runners in scoring position.
