Abortion clinics worried about possible shutdowns By John Hanna Associated Press Writer


T O P E K A — Kansas officials have taken only a few weeks to draft new abortion clinic regulations and plan to decide by July whether to give the state’s three existing clinics the licenses they

need to continue operating, according to documents released Tuesday. The top executive for Planned Parenthood of Kansas and Mid Missouri said he’s concerned imposing the new regulations so quickly will force all three clinics to shut down. The Planned

Parenthood chapter operates one of the three clinics, all of which are in the Kansas City area. Kansas Department of Health and Environment is imposing the rules under Republicanbacked legislation that was signed into law last month by

GOP Gov. Sam Brownback, a strong abortion opponent. The department sent Planned Parenthood a letter earlier this month saying its clinic would be inspected and notified by July 1 whether it would have a license. The other clinics received similar letters.

The Associated Press filed an open records request last week, seeking copies of the department’s correspondence with the clinics. Planned Parenthood provided its copies of the letters shortly before the agency Please see CLINICS, page 2A

T O P E K A — Travelers in Kansas will get to their destinations faster as the state increases the speed limit on most freeways from 70 mph to 75 mph. The change, announced Tuesday by the Kansas Department of Transportation, will take place July 1 just as the roads start filling up with motorists for the July 4 holiday weekend. Almost all of the Kansas Turnpike — from the Kansas-Oklahoma border to K-7 in Wyandotte County — will be 75 mph as will most of interstates 70 and 35; and U.S. highways 69 and 81. In all, 807 miles of roadway will graduate from 70 mph to 75 mph. All are freeways, which have controlled access and interchanges. No expressways, which have cross traffic, were selected for the increased speed limit. The routes were picked by a task force made up of KDOT representatives, the Kansas Highway Patrol and Kansas Turnpike Authority. “We considered a number of factors, such as traffic volumes, crash history and roadway geometrics, to determine where to raise the limit,” said Chris Herrick, director of KDOT’s Division of Planning and Development. “We will continue to monitor these routes under the new speed limit and consider whether it makes sense to increase the maximum speed on other highways.”

TRUCKS PASS A SPEED LIMIT SIGN Tuesday in the westbound lane of Interstate 70 just west of Lawrence. Beginning July 1, the speed limit on the Kansas Turnpike from the Oklahoma border to Kansas Highway 7 in Wyandotte County will increase to 75 mph from 70 mph, the Kansas Department of Transportation announced Tuesday. Not on the increased speed limit list was Kansas Highway 10. Steve Swartz, a spokesman for KDOT, said K-10 was too heavily traveled for 75 mph. “It’s such a heavy commuter route,” he said. The changes were prompted by legislation approved in the recently completed legislative session and signed into law by Gov. Sam Brownback. Rep. Marvin Kleeb, ROverland Park, drove the bill through the Legislature, hitting few bumps along the way. Kleeb argued the increased limit would help the economy by making Kansas more attractive to vacation travelers and truckers. Most western states have already adopted 75 mph. No groups opposed the measure. Jim Hanni, a spokesman for AAA in

Kansas, said the bill seemed like a “done deal.” Although he added, “There is nothing positive about it from a safety standpoint, and there is nothing positive about it from a fuel efficiency standpoint.” The website fuelecon, run by the U.S. Department of Energy, states each 5 mph over 60 mph is the equivalent of paying an additional 30 cents per gallon of gas. And the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety cites studies that show states that increased speed limits saw an increase in traffic fatalities. “For practical reasons, there are limits to the amount of crash energy that can be managed by vehicles, restraint systems, and roadway hardware such as barriers and crash cushions. The higher the

Commissioners serious about likely tax increase ———

Money sought to add more police officers By Chad Lawhorn

A property tax rate increase came a little closer to reality at Lawrence City Hall as commissioners did nothing to rebuff the idea at a Tuesday budget study session. In fact, one more commissioner said strong consideration would have to be given to a rate hike, especially to address concerns he has about a shortage of police officers in the city. “I think there is only so much time you can put off expenditures and reduce overhead, especially when you do have inflation to deal with,” said City Commissioner Mike Dever, who has lobbied against raising property taxes in the past. “At this point, it is hard to see how we’re going to find the revenue if we don’t raise taxes.”

Dever’s comments come one day after Mayor Aron Cromwell said he thought it would be difficult for the city to avoid a mill levy increase. At Tuesday’s session, City Manager David Corliss essentially told commissioners that he plans to recommend a mill levy increase as part of his recommended budget, which will be released in early July. “Raising the mill levy is never my first option,” Corliss told commissioners. “Cutting expenditures is what we look to do first, but I’m looking and not seeing anything significant that I can recommend.” Commissioners didn’t give any indication of how large of a mill levy increase may be in store. A 1.7 mill increase is assumed to fund an expansion of the Lawrence Public Library, which previously was approved by voters. But Please see TAXES, page 2A

Corliss has presented scenarios that have included a mill levy increase of more than four mills to fund additional police off icers, employee wages and other city items. Dever said he would be most likely to increase the mill levy in order to fund additional police off icers. Those plans have called for anywhere from a 2.8 mill to a 3.6 Corliss mill increase to add from five to 14 additional police positions. Those mill levy totals also include the 1.7 mills for the library. A mill is $1 in taxes for every $1,000 in assessed valuation. In other budget news, commissioners: ● Were presented a plan to use $1 million in infrastructure sales tax money to buy new radios for the city’s police, fire, public works and utilities departments. The new radios are required under federal regulations that require public agencies to switch to new frequencies by the end of 2012. The radios will cost about $2 million. The remaining million would come from a variety of city reserve funds. The infrastructure sales tax was approved by voters in 2008, with the idea that it would be used primarily for streets, but it also included a provision about improving public safety infrastructure, such as fire engines. The city has interpreted the ballot language to allow for the sales tax dollars to be used for the radios. Corliss said the unscheduled purchase won’t require other sales tax projects to be pushed back because the city had been conservative in estimating the revenue the sales tax would generate. “We didn’t want to overpromise in the beginning,” Corliss said. ● Debated how much of a $7.6 million reserve fund the city should use to help fund the city’s health insurance program.

Peter Brownlie, the Planned Parenthood chapter’s president and chief executive officer, said the organization is consulting with its attorneys about filing a lawsuit over the regulations and the process used to impose them. “Certainly, it’s unfair,” Brownlie said. “It is rushed. It is disorderly. It is confused.” The new law requires annual inspections of abortion clinics and gives the department the power to issue fines or go to court to shut clinics down for violating the new standards.

rules. A state board must sign off on the temporary rules, but that’s expected next week. Joseph Kroll, director of the bureau that drafted the rules, said his staff did research as lawmakers discussed the legislation and reviewed standards from other states and the American Institute of Architects. The new rules tell clinics how much space they must have for various areas and what equipment and drugs must be on hand. Kroll said the new law required the department to impose regulations quickly because the clinics can’t operate without a license after July 1. “It’s our intent to comply with the law to prevent an interruption in services at these facilities,” he told The Associated Press. “We followed the process we always do, but it was compressed.” Abortion rights supporters are skeptical. Julie Burkhart, founder of the political action committee Trust Women, called the regulations “a fullon assault” on abortion rights. “This really does nothing but harm the women of the state of Kansas,” she said. But Mary Kay Culp, executive director of the anti-abortion group Kansans for Life, said the regulations require providers to make good on their decades-old promise that procedures would be safe when legal. “They were going to whine no matter what,” Culp said. The health department regulates 158 hospitals and 74 surgical centers, which include the Planned Parenthood clinic in Overland Park. Dozens of other offices and

clinics do surgeries under rules imposed by the State Board of Healing Arts, which regulates physicians. The board can revoke a doctor’s license over unsafe conditions or practices, but abortion opponents have long accused it of being slow to act. The new law creates a separate licensing system for any clinic or hospital performing five or more abortions not resulting from medical emergencies. The other clinics falling under the law are the Center for Women’s Health, also in Overland Park, and the Aid for Women clinic in Kansas City, Kan. Brownlie said three state inspectors planned to arrive Wednesday for a two-day review of the Planned Parenthood clinic. He said he believes the clinic can meet the new regulations but isn’t sure what issues will arise and whether it will have adequate time to address perceived deficiencies. Center for Women’s Health officials didn’t return a telephone message seeking comment. Jeff Pederson, administrator at Aid for Women, said his clinic’s inspection hadn’t been scheduled as of Tuesday, but he considers the $500 licensing fee it paid “wasted.” “They have a mandate from God, and they need to make political hay while they have control of the House and Senate and they have the governor’s mansion,” he said. Kroll said he can’t predict what will happen after the inspections. He said the letters to the clinics were designed to be helpful. “Everything had to happen in a very quick period,” he said.

and tenants to sign a notarized “disclosure statement” at the time of the lease or sale of the property that spells out how many unrelated people legally can live at a location. ● A provision that would allow the city to revoke the rental license of a landlord who habitually violates the occupancy provisions. Currently, landlords who rent homes in single-family neighborhoods are required to register the properties and undergo a periodic inspection. ● Adding language to the

code that more clearly defines what constitutes a resident. Some commissioners suggested that resident be defined as anyone who lives at a location for 30 or more days. Adding a more specific definition could help the city prosecute cases in the future.

asked the city to change the policy after it was learned city code prohibited the practice. The city’s Parks and Recreation Department said it didn’t object to the change, as long as it was not the beginning of an effort to get the city to plant more fruit trees. The department said fruit trees could create maintenance and sanitary concerns, especially if large amounts of fruit went unpicked and was allowed to rot on the ground. Currently, the city has only a limited number of fruit-producing plants in its parks.

Rental registration program to be audited The city’s rental registration program will be studied

by the city’s auditor as part of his work plan for the next year. Commissioners chose four topics for City Auditor Michael Eglinski to audit during the next 12 months. Looking at how the city’s rental registration program functions was near the top of the list. The program currently requires landlords who rent single-family properties to register, but landlords of multifamily properties are not required to register. Other topics that Eglinski will study include: ● A review of several financial indicators for the city; ● The financial and operational relationship between the city and the county; ● A review of the city’s cash handling procedures.

Graphic cigarette labels announced Rotting teeth and gums. Diseased lungs. A sewnup corpse of a smoker. Cigarette smoke coming out of the tracheotomy hole in a man’s neck. Cigarette packs in the U.S. will have to carry these macabre images in nine new warning labels that are part of a campaign by the Food and Drug Administration to use fear and disgust to discourage Americans from lighting up. The labels, announced on Tuesday, represent the biggest change in cigarette packs in the U.S. in 25 years. At a time when the drop in the nation’s smoking rate has come to a standstill, the government is hoping the in-your-face labels will go further than the current surgeon general warnings toward curbing tobacco use, which is responsible for about 443,000 deaths a year in the U.S. “These labels are frank, honest and powerful depictions of the health risks of smoking,” Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius said in a statement.

Pharmacy school gets $1.2M gift in a statement that KU was important to his parents, particularly his father. “He relished his time at KU,” Davis said. “My father credited KU for how his life turned out. If it wasn’t for the university, he wouldn’t have had the education to bring forth all that he accomplished during his lifetime.” Ken Audus, dean of KU’s pharmacy school, said that the gift was a “wonderful way to secure the future” of the school, which is expanding to a class of 170 students this fall with the addition of 20 new students at an expanded campus in Wichita.

A $1.2 million estate gift for Kansas University will create scholarships at the university’s School of Pharmacy. The gift is from the estate of William and Virginia Davis.

The couple spent their retirement years in Boynton Beach, Fla. Their son, Stephen Davis, said

Senate OKs Panetta as Pentagon chief The Senate on Tuesday unanimously approved the nomination of Leon Panetta to be the next Pentagon chief, handing him a crowded agenda of overseeing the drawdown of U.S. troops in Iraq and Afghanistan, tamping down congressional unrest over the Libyan conflict and cutting the budget. Panetta will replace Defense Secretary Robert Gates, who is retiring June 30 after 4 1/2 years on the job through the administrations of Republican George W. Bush and Democrat Barack Obama. Panetta, the CIA director during the successful operation to kill terrorist leader Osama bin Laden, received strong bipartisan praise as well as a 100-0 vote. In a statement, Panetta thanked the Senate for its strong vote of confidence and promised to ensure that the U.S. maintains the strongest military in the world.

National Cancer Institute designation, officials said. The completed deal was announced Tuesday. The addition of the Kansas City Cancer Center brings on 10 patient care locations throughout the Kansas City region. “What we’re doing now is merging these two organizations that have put the patient at the forefront,” said Bob Page, president and CEO of KU Hospital. The combined outpatient operation will offer 52 hematologists, oncologists and radiation oncologists. KCCC will add 21 hematologist/oncologists, six radiation oncologists and a pathologist. Before the merger, a reasonable criticism could have been made that the KU Cancer Center lacked a sufficient number of patients enrolled in Phase I clinical trials to become a nationally recognized cancer center, said Roy Jensen, director of the KU Cancer Center. “This helps solidify that critical mass for us,” Jensen said. The KU Cancer Center already had 143 clinical trials

Obama likely to withdraw 10K troops Facing a war-weary public, President Barack Obama is expected to call for a major withdrawal of American troops from Afghanistan tonight, with roughly 10,000 coming home to the U.S. in less than a year. The phased drawdown is likely to start with 5,000 troops recalled this summer and an additional 5,000 by winter or spring 2012, according to a senior U.S. defense official. Obama is also weighing a timetable for bringing home the 20,000 other troops he ordered to Afghanistan as part of his December 2009 decision to send reinforcements to reverse the Taliban’s battlefield momentum. The withdrawals would put the U.S. on a path toward giving Afghans control of their security by 2014 and ultimately shifting the U.S. military from a combat role to a mission focused on training and supporting Afghan forces. Obama is to address the nation from the White House at 7 p.m. tonight.

Newt Gingrich’s top two fundraising advisers resigned Tuesday, and officials said the Republican candidate’s hobbling presidential campaign carried more than $1 million in debt. The departures of fundraising director Jody Thomas and fundraising consultant Mary Heitman were the latest blow for the former House speaker who watched 16 top advisers abandon his campaign en masse earlier this month, partly because of what people familiar with the campaign spending described as a dire financial situation. These people, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the campaign’s inner workings, said the former Georgia lawmaker racked up massive travel bills but money had only trickled in since he got into the race earlier this spring. These officials said that he is at least $1 million in debt. The current fundraising quarter ends June 30, and Gingrich will have to disclose his campaign finances by July 15. He is personally wealthy and could fund his campaign out of his own pocket, at least in the short term, to keep his campaign afloat.

between $275,000 and $300,000 in scholarship funds, he said. The gift would add $48,000 per year, and the school would contribute another $20,000 or so per year in matching funds, Audus said. With the new funds, Audus said he expected about 70 percent of the school’s students would receive scholarships in some amount next year. “It really helps students out,” he said. “It’s a great gift.”

Construction on the new facility is expected to take 20 to 24 months to complete. Once built, the new plant will produce enough electricity to power about 3,300 homes per year.

— Bob Page, president and CEO of KU Hospital under way before the merger, and the Kansas City Cancer Center will add 73 new trials to the effort. “We’re excited about the opportunity to expand our clinical trial program,” to more than 250 trials, said Mark Myron, president of the Kansas City Cancer Center. No jobs will be lost as part of the merger. The 27 physicians from KCCC will become members of the KU School of Medicine’s faculty and will eventually become involved in clinical education of students and residents. The nonphysician staff of KCCC will become employees of KU Hospital. Both parties declined to discuss financial details of the merger Tuesday, but Page said no state funds were used to complete the deal. — Higher education reporter Andy Hyland can be reached at 832-6388.

Topeka man to serve 17 years for 2009 robbery By George Diepenbrock

A Douglas County judge on Tuesday morning sentenced a 22-year-old Topeka man to 17 years in prison for a 2009 robbery of a Lawrence convenience store. “The departure evidence shows a man who is immature, but it also shows that he committed three identical crimes to three separate persons for the purpose of obtaining money,” District Judge Michael Malone said. Malone denied Sedryck Welch’s request for a seven-year sentence, but he allowed him to serve the 17 years at the same time that he’s serving nearly

five years for robbery convictions in Shawnee County. A jury in January convicted Welch of aggravated robbery after prosecuWelch tors accused him of using a shotgun to rob a clerk on Aug. 3, 2009, at Conoco, 2447 W. Sixth St. Welch has already been sentenced to serve 59 months in prison after he pleaded guilty to two counts of aggravated robbery in Shawnee County related to a 2009 robbery of two people at a Topeka convenience store.

For the Douglas County conviction, under state sentencing guidelines Welch faced 17 to 19 years in prison. His attorney, Sarah Swain, and family members asked Malone to give him a lesser prison sentence, mainly based on his age and testimony from a psychologist who said Welch had a low IQ and did not meet the profile of a career criminal. Welch said he would accept Malone’s punishment. He will get credit for already serving more than one year in the Douglas County Jail. “I’m willing to make good choices,” he said “And I’m willing to surround myself with positive people.”

Lawrence-Douglas County Housing Authority

Swain asked for an 84-month prison sentence to run concurrently with his Shawnee County sentence and said the Topeka and Lawrence crimes were committed over a short period of time. Swain said no one was hurt in the robberies but that he still deserved to be punished because a firearm was used. “This is not a kid who exhibits pro-criminal behavior,” Swain said. “This is a young, immature guy who is low-functioning, who can barely read or write, whose means of getting attention was at times these types of things.” Please see ROBBERY, page 4A

Brownback wants Robbery Greek PM survives to match prisoners confidence vote with mentors


Notable ● President Barack Obama’s health care law would let several million middle-class people get nearly free insurance meant for the poor, a twist government number crunchers discovered only after the complex bill was signed. The change would affect early retirees: A married couple could have an annual income of about $64,000 and still get Medicaid, said officials who make long-range cost estimates for the Health and Human Services department. After initially downplaying any concern, the Obama administration said late Tuesday it would look for a fix. Up to 3 million more people could qualify for Medicaid in 2014 as a result. That’s because, in a change from today, most of their Social Security benefits would no longer be counted as income for determining eligibility.

ATHENS, GREECE — The Greek prime minister survived a crucial confidence vote early Wednesday, keeping alive a government dedicated to averting a debt default that could spark a financial maelstrom around the world. Lawmakers voted 155 to 143 along party lines to back Prime Minister George Papandreou, who now faces a critical vote next week on a massive austerity package that Greece’s international creditors have said must pass by the end of June. He is seeking 28 billion euros, or $40.24 billion, in budget cuts and new taxes and 50 billion euros worth of privatization of public assets. Unless the new measures pass, Greece will not receive the next batch of bailout funds, worth 12 billion euros and will face a disastrous default in July when it runs out of money. A default by Greece could drag down Greek and European banks and renew fears over the finances of other eurozone countries such as Portugal, Ireland and Spain. Papandreou must still convince all the lawmakers from his Socialist party to support the austerity bill, which has provoked strikes, riots and a slump in his popularity.

While all 155 Socialists voted in favor of the confidence motion, several have publicly criticized the austerity measures and at least one has said he will not back them. After the vote, riot police f ired tear gas and stun grenades to push back a group of about 200 protesters who had broken off from a main rally of several thousand to throw bottles and other objects at the police lines guarding Parliament. “We will do everything in our power to end the state of insecurity Greek families face and exit this crisis in a safe way. We have a plan, we have prospects,” Papandreou said during a debate before his victory. “Regardless of the panic caused by some, we are on an organized course, helped by the international community with massive loans — the largest every given in the history of our planet.” Papandreou’s government came to the brink of collapse last week as protesters rioted on the streets of Athens, two party rebels resigned their parliamentary seats and talks with the opposition conservatives over forming a pro-austerity coalition government fell apart. In response, he reshuffled his Cabinet, replaced his increasingly unpopular finance minister with a party heavyweight — his main internal rival — and called for the confidence vote.

TOPEKA — Gov. Sam Brownback on Tuesday announced an expansion of his faithbased initiative, saying that he wants to match state prisoners with faith-based mentors. Brownback has already given the green light to a new faith-based division in the state’s welfare agency. Now, the Kansas Department Brownback of Corrections is ready to roll out Mentoring 4 Success, he said. The state prison system will work with Prison Fellowship Ministries, Reaching Out From Within and the ecumenical Spiritual Advisors to help inmates succeed when they are released from prison, he said. “I know firsthand, as we all do, the importance and the power that a mentor has in our lives,” Brownback said.

Brownback’s Corrections Secretary Ray Roberts said of the 5,000 inmates released from the Kansas prison system last year, approximately 1,100 came back to prison for violations. The goal is to reduce that number, Roberts said. He said the prison system has been working since March on developing a plan of action to launch the initiative and recruit mentors, who will work on a voluntary basis. The state will be divided into six regions and each region will have a lead mentoring organization. “We are looking for good, solid people interested in making a difference in the lives of others,” Roberts said. He said he has a lot of interest from religious groups and community organizations. Roberts said the state will not be pushing any religion and will not be assigning mentors based on religion. The funding for the initiatives will be within existing agency revenues, he said. — Statehouse reporter Scott Rothschild can be reached at 785-423-0668.

During the January trial Douglas County prosecutors presented surveillance photos of a man with a gun that night, and the clerk and two other witnesses who knew Welch in 2009 testified and said they believed he was the man in the video. Prosecutors asked Malone to sentence him to 18 years in prison after serving five years for his Shawnee County conviction. They questioned how Welch COURTS presented himself to the psychologist and submitted testimony earlier this month of a jailer who said Welch talked to him about a possible escape from the Douglas County Jail earlier this year. Welch denied that he mentioned that to the jailer when he testified at a prior hearing and accused another inmate of trying to use him. “In some ways the departure gives him an incentive to reaffirm for himself that he’s not really as responsible as the law says he is for what he did,” Assistant District Attorney James McCabria said while asking Malone to deny Swain’s request. — Reporter George Diepenbrock can be reached at 832-7144.

Missing Baldwin City man found and OK A 79-year-old Baldwin City man who was reported missing earlier in the day was found Monday night west of Clinton Lake and taken to Lawrence Memorial Hospital for treatment. Sgt. Steve Lewis, a Douglas County Sheriff’s spokesman, said that about 11 a.m. Monday, the man went to the Woodridge Park area on the northwest side of the lake for a hike with his dog. Family members reported him missing Monday evening, and deputies began searching at 7 p.m., Lewis said. Staff members with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and Clinton Township Fire Department assisted. Lewis said as a thunderstorm was approaching, officers were preparing to suspend the search, but Clinton Township firefighters found the man at 9:30 p.m., before the storm hit. The man, whose name was not released, was taken by ambulance to Lawrence Memorial Hospital where he was treated for exhaustion and dehydration, Lewis said. “The Sheriff's Office appreciated the assistance of the Corps of Engineers and Clinton Township Fire Department,” he said. “It was invaluable in our efforts to locate the missing individual.” Deputies had found the dog, a collie, with the man’s vehicle when they initially arrived at the park. An officer took the dog to the hospital to be reunited with the family. A hospital spokeswoman said Tuesday afternoon the man was in good condition at LMH.

It was at the dawn of the Internet age, back around 1995 or so, when he created his “Bugs in the News” website all about microorganisms. The website got a mention in The Atlantic this month as one of its senior editors, Alexis Madrigal, remembered finding the site as a boy while looking up a question on an early version of the Yahoo search engine. The pair struck up a relationship, even though Madrigal was far away from Lawrence in rural Washington state. Brown said the site attracted attention from all over the world.

Weekly newspaper vows to continue after fire ELLSWORTH — Readers of the weekly Ellsworth County Independent-Reporter will get their newspaper this week even though a fire destroyed the paper’s offices, editor and publisher Linda Mowery-Denning said. No injuries were reported in the fire Sunday, and the building’s owners were able to escape safely. An investigation into the cause continues. The roof collapsed Sunday night on the nearly 100-year-old building, and officials declared it a total loss. The newspaper’s seven-person staff is putting together Wednesday’s edition on computers in the Ellsworth High School journalism department. Mowery-Denning had her laptop, which contained page templates, at home at the time of the fire, and the high school computers use the same software that the weekly uses, she told The Salina Journal. “Some people have acted surprised, but it was never a question,” Mowery-Denning said Monday. “It never even occurred to us that we wouldn’t get a paper out this week.” Several hundred firefighters from the area responded and worked until 1:30 a.m. Monday to keep the fire from spreading to adjoining downtown buildings, said Rod Job, interim director of Ellsworth County Emergency Management.

Russian environmentalists take note of city’s sustainability efforts By Christine Metz

It’s a safe bet that the city of Lawrence’s composting facility isn’t usually on anyone’s must-see list while traveling in the United States or even in Kansas. But that’s exactly where a group of six Russians were touring Tuesday morning. As they walked by long piles of yard debris, they snapped photos and asked questions. Most of them were either environmental administrators or advocates and came from all over Russia. They were in Lawrence as part of the Open World Program Delegations, which is funded almost entirely by Congress and is intended to foster relationships with the United States and countries of Europe and Asia.

The group will be visiting Lawrence until Sunday and is being officially hosted by the Kansas University Center for Russian, East European and Eurasian Studies. The group spent a few days in Washington, D.C., before coming to Lawrence. Along with the city’s composting facility, they had plans to see the Bowersock Dam; the city of Greensburg, which became a model for building a green community after a devastating tornado; and a building constructed by a group of KU architecture students that has a wind turbine, rain garden, green roof and an electric vehicle charging station. Roman Romashin, a deputy director for a utility company in the southwestern part of Russia, said through an inter-

preter that he has seen areas where Russia could learn from what the United States is doing and the United States could benefit from what Russia is doing. “What has become readily apparent in our two days is the fact that both countries face the same problems,” Romashin said and noted that he would like to better understand the American approach to solving those problems. Maria Zhevlakova, who works with an environmental education organization in St. Petersburg, said environmental problems tend to be international in scope. “With all the environmental issues, especially now with globalization, you can’t f ind where one problem starts and where it finishes because they cover continents,” she said. — Reporter Christine Metz can be reached at 832-6352.

1st Medicaid overhaul forum today By John Hanna Associated Press Writer

TOPEKA — Gov. Sam Brownback’s administration prepared Tuesday to kick off public forums on reforming the Medicaid program in Kansas, part of a review that’s supposed to result in proposals later this year for controlling the state’s costs in providing health care to the needy. The first of four planned forums was scheduled for this afternoon in Topeka, and Lt. Gov. Jeff Colyer, a surgeon who’s leading the administration’s Medicaid team, said at least several hundred people will be attending the event. Both Brownback and Colyer are expected to participate. “We’re trying to tackle the overall structure, also how it serves patients, how we deal with costs and quality,” Colyer said. The Medicaid team also has scheduled forums for July 7 in Wichita and July 8 in Dodge City. Colyer said it will have another in late summer in the Kansas City area and expects to draft its proposals by early fall. The Republican administration’s efforts are likely to be closely watched by legislators and advocates for the poor, elderly and disabled. Those groups have medical services covered by the program, which is administered by the state under rules set by the federal government, which picks up about 60 percent of the program’s costs. Kansas Democratic Party Chairwoman Joan Wagnon, a former legislator and state revenue secretary, promised that she’ll attend the first forum. She said she’s concerned that the Brownback administration’s focus is cutting Medicaid spending. “This is supposed to be a listening tour to find out what people think, and I want to tell them what I think,” Wagnon said. “Kansans need to get out of their chairs and go to these meetings.” The state’s budget, now

$13.8 billion, has long been under pressure from rising Medicaid costs, which tend to spike during economic downturns. Kansas’ total Medicaid spending is expected to reach $2.8 billion during the fiscal year that begins July 1. An average of 344,000 Kansans are participating in the program each month, up 8 percent from a year ago. The state’s total Medicaid spending has increased 48 percent in the past eight years, according to legislative researchers. “I’m sure cutting costs is one of their highest priorities, but my hope is that we end up

with a system that takes care of those individuals who need Medicaid,” said Senate Ways and Means Committee Chairwoman Carolyn McGinn, a Sedgwick Republican. Brownback has said repeatedly that he wants to rein in costs and improve the delivery of services. Colyer’s team already has taken dozens of suggestions from groups and individuals, ideas that include increased use of managed care, changes in how prescription drugs are covered, more aggressive pursuit of fraud and even an end to Medicaid coverage of circumcision.

School priorities When making budget cuts, Wichita officials chose C-team sports over librarians for their city’s high schools. Is that the right priority?


awrence school board members already have signed off on about $3 million in cuts and savings for next year, but more cuts may be needed in the years to come. With that in mind, it can be instructive to look at some of the decisions being made in other districts across the state. Faced with some difficult choices, the Wichita school district made some interesting decisions Monday night. Wichita board members had earlier considered eliminating C-team and sophomore sports in the city’s high schools, but when push came to shove, funding was found for those programs, according to a Wichita newspaper report. However, although Wichita’s high schools will have C-team sports, they will not have librarians. Certified high school librarians will be replaced by library clerks in order to cut funds. The fine arts also took a major hit in Wichita schools. Although half of the middle school band and orchestra teaching positions were reinstated in the final budget, the elementary orchestra program was not. Although several board members expressed frustration with the budget compromises proposed by their superintendent, only one member voted against the plan. That member said she was disappointed that athletics programs had been restored while the librarians and elementary orchestra programs had not. If, as seems likely, difficult school budget issues persist into the foreseeable future, that is a question many districts may have to ask. Athletic programs have become an integral part of the high school experience, but are they more important than teaching fine arts or providing certified librarians? In Wichita, the library clerks will not be allowed to supervise students so teachers will be required to stay with students during library time, adding yet another task to their school day. Wichita Superintendent John Allison said “it’s going to be different” not to have certified librarians in the library, but when he asked high school principals to “look at where their priorities fell … librarians weren’t in that top tier.” The Internet has had a significant impact on how students do research, but it’s still hard to think that librarians aren’t a “top tier” position for Kansas high schools. Wichita officials obviously thought otherwise. We’re sure it was a tough decision — one of many that school officials across the state will be facing this year.


U.S., Pakistan working on relationship W A S H I N G T O N — It’s always painful to watch a love affair go sour, as the unrealistic expectations and secret betrayals come crashing down in a chorus of recrimination. That’s what’s happening now between the United States and Pakistan, and it has a soap-operatic quality, in Washington and Islamabad alike. “How could they treat us so badly?” is the tone of political debate in both capitals. If this were a feuding couple, you’d counsel a cooling-off period, as they recover their wounded pride and balance. And that’s probably the right advice for America and Pakistan, too. These two countries have been bitterly disappointed in the relationship — with each seemingly incapable of understanding what upsets the other — but they have overriding common interests, too. “There are points of friction, but there is no breakdown,” says Husain Haqqani, Pakistan’s ambassador to Washington who has worked hard to avert a crackup, even when that has meant challenging his own military. Most senior U.S. policymakers would agree with his assessment. After the cooling-off period, the relationship will be different — with a greater show of respect for Pakistani independence. That’s a good thing, even from the standpoint of U.S. interests. The old embrace had become suffocating, with the Pakistani military looking to its public like a lackey of the United States. This was producing growing

will be different — with a greater show of respect for Pakistani independence. That’s a good thing, even from the standpoint of U.S. interests.”

national shame and indignation, similar to the anger that toppled Egypt’s Hosni Mubarak. When looking at recent events in Pakistan, it’s important to remind yourself of some basic realities: ● It’s not surprising that the Pakistanis arrested people suspected as CIA informants on the Osama bin Laden raid and other operations. Working with a foreign intelligence service (even a “friendly” one with good motives) is a no-no in any country. Just ask Jonathan Pollard, who spied for Israel and is still in a U.S. prison more than two decades later. I’m told that four of the five informants arrested in

Pakistan have now been released. ● It’s not bad that Pakistani corps commanders (and some leading Pakistani journalists and politicians) are questioning the army chief of staff, Gen. Ashfaq Parvez Kayani. This dissent frightens Americans who worry about proto-jihadists in the army, but that fear is overdone. Pushback against the military leadership is healthy, and Pakistan needs more of it, not less. ● It’s not wrong for Pakistanis to bristle over what they see as threats to their sovereignty. In any nation, the military is a symbol of independence and national pride. When national sovereignty is seen to be compromised — as by the raid on bin Laden’s compound and regular Predator drone attacks — people get upset. The U.S. should continue to take unilateral military action against threats (we have our sovereign interests, too). But secrecy in such matters is important to avoid humiliating our partner. What should we expect from the “odd couple,” going forward? First, the two countries this month created what they’re calling a “joint counterterrorism task force” to oversee operations. One goal will be quicker action to avoid tipping off the enemy — as seemed to happen between the May 19 delivery of CIA intelligence about two Taliban bomb factories in the tribal areas and the June 4 Pakistani assault. This joint group is intended to satisfy Pakistani demands that the U.S. curb its unilateral intelligence

operations. Second, the Pakistanis plan to end the CIA’s use of the Shamsi air base in southwest Pakistan as a staging area for Predator drone attacks. But they can’t (and won’t) stop Predator missions that originate in Afghanistan. Meanwhile, the U.S. will keep supplying F-16s and may replace two P-3 Orion surveillance planes destroyed in a terrorist attack in Karachi last month. Third, Pakistani cooperation with U.S. Special Forces will continue but on a less visible scale. The Pakistanis will take over what had been a joint training mission for the Frontier Corps at Warsak, northwest of Peshawar. But over the next few months, the overall U.S. Special Forces presence will probably return to roughly what it was before the recent flap. Fourth, the U.S. will consult Pakistan as it seeks a political settlement in Afghanistan. A team working for Marc Grossman, the U.S. special representative overseeing those negotiations, recently visited Islamabad to brief officials there. These arrangements aren’t ideal from the U.S. standpoint, but they should allow continued cooperation against a terrorist adversary that threatens both countries. And over the long run, this new framework is better than a domineering U.S. approach that has the effect of blowing up Pakistan. — David Ignatius is a columnist for Washington Post Writers Group.



The impending renovation of the 62-year-old Eldridge House YEARS from apartment AGO house to hotel was IN 1986 welcome news for many in Lawrence, but for the current residents of the apartments, it was just another move. Tenants had until June 30 to find a new home, but all but five had pulled up stakes and said good-bye.


From the Lawrence Daily Journal-World for June 22, 1911: YEARS "Mrs. Ida GrifAGO fith, wife of Prof. W. IN 1911 A. Griffith of the art department of the state university, and Miss Charline Smith are the beneficiaries of the will of their uncle, Sylvester T. Smith, which was filed in Chicago today. The estate is to be divided between the five nieces of the deceased and this will make a handsome fortune to each one.” — Compiled by Sarah St. John

A politician who lies is hardly unique In the aftermath of the exposure and resignation of Rep. Anthony Weiner, D-N.Y., from Congress, his colleagues, some journalists, ethicists and pundits are trying to sort out what it means. Has a new standard been created in Washington? How can Rep. Charles Rangel, D-N.Y., remain in office under an ethical cloud about money and Weiner be forced to resign because he had fantasy sex? It wasn't even “real” sex, like Bill Clinton had. Clinton also lied about sex and was impeached for lying (but not for the sex because as actress Janeane Garofalo told Bill Maher recently, “everyone lies about sex”). Some wondered then if standards had fallen for occupants of the Oval Office, or whether the behavior of Clinton and some Republicans mirror a national moral decline? The Washington Post ran a front-page story last Friday, the subheadline of which said, “Had congressman not lied, colleague says, ‘it could have ended differently.’” So it isn’t what used to be called moral turpitude that did Weiner in, but lying about it? If he had not been exposed, would he have been any less morally guilty? Who decides? Not the voters. Democratic Party leaders forced Weiner out. They were embarrassed by his behavior and

they wished to discuss other things. A University of Maryland student friend of mine tells me one of her classes last semester discussed “the normalization of deviance.” In an age when what is normal is determined by culture and opinion polls and when “orthodoxy” is regarded as something to be avoided, deviance has ceased to have meaning. That’s because there is now no nationally accepted standard by which it can be measured and, thus, be used to hold people, even members of Con-

gress, accountable. If lying is now the unpardonable political sin, we may at last have found a way to limit congressional terms. If lying is sufficient reason to expel a member, then the halls of Congress may soon be vacant of all but the janitorial crew who empty the trash and mop the floors at night. All politicians lie at some level, even Jimmy Carter, who promised during the 1976 campaign and in the aftermath of Watergate, “I’ll never lie to you.” He did though. Google “Jimmy Carter lies” and read for yourself. According to the list, he’s still telling lies, 30 years after leaving office. George H.W. Bush promised, “Read my lips. No new taxes.” We read his lips, but were they lying lips? He caved into Congress, which raised taxes during his single term. Bush signed the legislation. In 1963, before cynicism replaced skepticism in the press, Pentagon spokesman Arthur Sylvester spoke about government’s “inherent right to lie.” Granted, it was in the context of “to save itself when facing a nuclear disaster...” but as we know from the Pentagon Papers, lies from government became commonplace during the Vietnam War. More than 58,000 Americans, whose names appear

on the Vietnam Memorial Wall in Washington, are victims of those lies. President Obama’s lies about many things are catalogued on various websites and increasingly in mainstream newspapers. Some who led cheers for him in 2008 are now finding his lies difficult to ignore. Glenn Kessler, who writes the Fact Checker column for the Washington Post, recently awarded the president “three Pinocchios” (out of four) for his claim that “Chrysler has repaid every dime and more of what it owes American taxpayers for their support during my presidency.” There are many, more examples (http://www.obamalies. net/list-of-lies). Sure, Republicans lie, too, but if lying about something, rather than bad ideas or bad behavior, is the new standard in Washington, D.C., someone had better tell the politicians. Thomas Jefferson did in an Aug. 19, 1785 letter to Peter Carr: “he who permits himself to tell a lie once, finds it much easier to do it a second and third time, till at length it becomes habitual; he tells lies without attending to it, and truths without the world’s believing him. This falsehood of the tongue leads to that of the heart, and in time depraves all its good dispositions.” — Cal Thomas is a columnist for Tribune Media Services.

Vince Ellis of The Detroit Free Press posted on his Twitter account that Markieff had the best workout of all six players. The Huff ington Post’s Jordan Schultz also seemed to hint that Detroit was a possibility for Markieff in a story Tuesday, saying, “Morris is the longshot here (for Detroit at No. 8), but GM Joe Dumars loves his toughness, something the Pistons have sorely lacked since Ben Wallace’s first stint with the Pistons.” The NBA draft will take place Thursday in Newark, N.J.

Kansas University forward Markieff Morris appears to have boosted his NBA draft stock after working out Tuesday with the Detroit Pistons.

rent NBA players make mock picks for their own teams. Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry selected KU’s Marcus Morris with the 11th pick. “A guy who plays hard, can shoot a 15- to 20-footer off pick-and-rolls and rebounds well can play for any team. We need workhorses like that,” Curry said in the article. Houston Rockets guard Kyle Lowry took Markieff Morris with the mock draft’s 14th pick. “I want Markieff,” Lowry said. “He can play with Patrick Patterson on the second unit, at the 4 or the 5. He’s a rugged banger, but he also has the finesse game and the ability to handle the ball well ... And I’m a little biased, because we’re both from Philly.”

Serena emotional after Wimbledon win WIMBLEDON, ENGLAND (AP) — The 352 days Serena Williams lived through between Grand Slam appearances were f illed with health problems and hospitalizations, doubts and depression. Cuts from glass on both feet. One subsequent operation on her right foot, then a second. Clots in her lungs. Surgery to remove a pool of blood under her skin. On and on it went.

Finally healthy, and finally back at a major tournament, Williams was simply overwhelmed by it all at the conclusion of her match at Wimbledon on Tuesday. As soon as she snapped off her 13th ace of the afternoon to close an uneven performance in a 6-3, 3-6, 6-1 victory over Aravane Rezai of France in the first round, Williams placed her right palm on her chest. Her eyes welled with tears.


Reality of trip to Dodger Stadium surreal By Bill Plaschke Los Angeles Times

LOS ANGELES — “Two dollars and fiftyfive cents!” The price was giddily shouted by my son as he scanned the computer, and I quickly scolded him for joking. I wasn’t trying to buy a six-pack of soda. I wasn’t trying to buy a bowl of soup. I was trying to buy a reserved-level Dodgers ticket for last Wednesday’s afternoon game against the Cincinnati Reds. “Be serious!” I told him. “Two dollars and fifty-five cents!” he shouted again. I questioned him further. He wasn’t kidding. He had found three Dodgers tickets on the StubHub resale website for $2.55 each. The typeface was small. The message was giant. Admission to one of baseball’s most venerable stadiums for a game involving one of baseball’s most enduring franchises was being sold for the price of a pack of hair clips. I didn’t think it was real. Even when my son had clicked the mouse and the printer had spit out three tickets for less than $20 including fees, I still didn’t think it was real. Twelve hours later, on a sunny and cool June afternoon, three Plaschkes were sprawled out high above the enduring beauty of a major-league game, laughing out loud over the incredulity of it all. Turns out, the $2.55 ticket was the only real part of a surreal afternoon in Frank McCourt’s Ghost Town. When you use pocket change for a baseball ticket, you usually don’t feel much pressure to arrive at the game on time. So, with my son and daughter in tow, we pulled off the freeway at Dodger Stadium about noon for the 12:10 p.m. start, which would have normally put us in our seats by the bottom of the first inning. Moments later, we were reminded that things around here are anything but normal. Because moments later we were pulling into the actual stadium after navigating roads so empty, my daughter actually wanted to confirm that there was a game. In Frank McCourt’s Ghost Town, there is no traffic. There is no buzz. Driving through the Chavez Ravine parking lot is like driving through a spring training parking lot. Folks leisurely strolling across vast expanses of empty. Nobody in a hurry because everyone figuring they would be on time. Which, we were. There were no lines to enter the parking lot, no lines to enter the stadium, and nobody clogging the concourses as we walked to our seats just in time to watch the first of many lousy pitches from Chad Billingsley. Actually, I don’t think those were our seats. Because our section was virtually empty, we could pick any seat we wanted, so we pulled into a middle row and spread out like three people sitting in an empty theater before a bad movie. We put our feet up on the seat in front of us. We spread our arms across the seats between us. There were no heads to block our view. There was little sound to distract our attention. Down below, the Dodgers and Reds battled each other as if they were little leaguers playing for a handful of parents. It was actually pretty cool. Life in Frank McCourt’s Ghost Town is eerie, but it has its advantages. There is the Nap Factor. It was so quiet, for the first time ever in a ballpark I actually fell asleep. It happened in the second inning, and again in the sixth inning, leading to a true seventh-inning stretch. There is the Food Factor. Even though the unconscionably slow Dodger Stadium concession lines still exist, a full inning has been cut off the usual wait for a hot dog. Despite this being a half-priced food game, my daughter was able to make the run and return to our seats within a span of three outs. Incidentally, the Dodgers average attendance is officially ranked 10th in the baseball at 35,675 per game but, as a general rule, cut that in half. For day games in the middle of the week, cut it in half again. For this game, I would have listed the attendance as Huge Swatches of Empty Surrounded by Small Huddles of Few.

By the time she walked to the net to shake hands with Rezai, Williams was crying. She sat in her sideline chair, covered her face with a tournament towel and sobbed. And she kept right on bawling through a postmatch TV interview with the BBC. “It definitely was so emotional for me because, you know, throughout the last 12 months, I’ve been through a lot of things that’s

not normal; things you guys don’t even know about,” the 29-year-old American said at her news conference. “So it’s just been a long, arduous road. To stand up, still, is pretty awesome.” There was none of that sort of drama on the day’s later matches on Centre Court, which included straight-set victories for Roger Federer, Novak Djokovic and Maria Sharapova.


Source: NFL owners, players to meet again ROSEMONT, ILL. — The next time NFL owners meet over labor, there is hope it will be to ratify a new collective bargaining agreement with the players. Don’t get carried away thinking a deal is imminent. Optimism is in the air, for sure. That doesn’t mean the end of the lockout is at hand. Owners were briefed Tuesday on discussions for a new CBA that would net the players just under 50 percent of total revenues. Next up: more talks with the players in the Boston area. Several people with knowledge of the negotiations told The Associated Press that Commissioner Roger Goodell and his labor committee will meet with players association chief DeMaurice Smith today and Thursday. The owners spent five hours Tuesday getting updated on various CBA issues. The people spoke on condition of anonymity because the negotiations are supposed to be confidential. “We’re going to meet with them soon and we’re eager to accelerate the pace of the negotiations,” said Jeff Pash, the league’s chief negotiator. “We have a lot of work to do and we’ve got to do it right,” Goodell added. “The agreement has to focus on several issues and the issues are complex. It must be done in a way that is fair to the players and a way that is fair to the clubs.”

NBA Owners, players swap proposals NEW YORK — Commissioner David Stern said Tuesday that NBA owners have proposed a “flex cap” system, but players still insist its a hard cap which they won’t agree to. 1 Both sides made new proposals in a 3 ⁄2hour meeting on what Stern said was an important day in the league’s labor talks. The collective bargaining agreement is set to expire June 30. Calling the league’s offer “virtually the best shot we think we have” to avoid a work stoppage, Stern said the owners’ proposal would ensure players’ total compensation would never fall below $2 billion per year in a 10-year contract, just slightly less than the league paid out this season. Though Stern refused to call this his last offer, he said the “cupboard is getting barer and barer.” “It’s all out there,” he said. “The owners to a person feel that this is what we have to give.” The union made what Stern called a “directionally better” proposal than its previous ones and asked for another meeting Friday.

OSU to start building practice site STILLWATER, OKLA. — Oklahoma State plans to start construction this summer on a new $16 million indoor practice facility that has been in the works for years. Athletic director Mike Holder announced Tuesday that construction of the Sherman E. Smith Training Center will begin around Aug. 1. The Cowboys will become the last Big 12 team to have an indoor practice site for football. Sherman E. Smith donated $20 million toward what was intended to be a $50 million facility when the gift was announced in January 2007, but construction was repeatedly delayed.

UNC receives notice of allegations North Carolina has received a notice of allegations from the NCAA outlining numerous “potential major violations” in the football program, including unethical conduct by a former assistant coach as well as failure to adequately monitor the conduct of a former and current players. The notice, released Tuesday evening, accuses former associate head coach John Blake of providing “false and misleading information” to both NCAA investigators and the school regarding his relationship with late NFL agent Gary Wichard. That included a failure to report $31,500 in outside income from Wichard’s firm, Pro Tect Management LLC, from May 2007 to October 2009.

MLS Smith leaving Sporting KC KANSAS CITY, KAN. — Sporting Kansas City says Ryan Smith is leaving the MLS team for family reasons and will not be back this season. The 24-year-old Smith was signed before the 2010 season and appeared in 26 games, recording three goals and seven assists. He missed the first four games of this season after offseason knee surgery and the past three games with a groin strain. He had one goal in six games. Manager Peter Vermes says it’s not easy for international players to live in the U.S. and that was the case with Smith, who is from England. He says Smith needed to be closer to home.

Brewers 5, Rays 1 MILWAUKEE — Zack Greinke struck out 10 over seven effective innings and Milwaukee got back to its winning ways at home with a victory over Tampa Bay. Greinke (7-2) provided his best performance so far with the Brewers as Milwaukee came into play a 1⁄2-game behind St. Louis in the NL Central.

Twins 9, Giants 2 S A N F R A N C I S C O — Ben Revere had two hits and two RBIs to highlight an eight-run first inning, and a surging Minnesota team tied a major league record by opening with eight consecutive hits against Madison Bumgarner. Luke Hughes had a two-run single and four others had an RBI in the first to chase Bumgarner (3-9) before some fans even found their seats at cozy AT&T Park. The only out the left-hander recorded came when he struck out pitcher Carl Pavano swinging. Minnesota

4B Wednesday, June 22, 2011


Cavs mulling draft decisions closed player workouts to the media. Nearly one year after LeBron James stripped them of their identity, the Cavs have all the power — and they’re using it. Aside from the record rainfall, it’s been an otherwise joyous spring in Cleveland, a city not accustomed to feeling too good about its sports teams. The Cavaliers, who lost 63 games and were out of the playoff hunt by January in their first season without James, won the draft lottery in May. Then James, whose tortuous departure last summer left scars, lost to Dallas in the NBA finals, giving Cleveland fans a chance to gloat over someone else’s misery for a change. But this draft has spawned optimism and is giving the Cavaliers a chance to accelerate their post-LeBron recovery. As the first team with two picks in the top four since Houston in 1983, Cleveland is confident it will come away climbing a few rungs up the ladder back to contention. Trouble is, experts have labeled this draft as one of the weakest in recent memory. Several top players, including lottery locks Harrison Barnes and Jared Sullinger, decided to stay in college perhaps because of concerns about a possible labor lockout. What’s left are players laden with question marks and only Irving and Williams viewed as potential perennial All-Stars. If there’s a year when hav-

ing the No. 1 and No. 4 picks is not ideal, this would be it. Sorry, Cleveland. And although the Cavs have not publicly committed to settling on Irving, he appears to be their top choice. In the point-guard-driven NBA, where backcourt players like Derrick Rose, Deron Williams, Chris Paul, Rajon Rondo and John Wall are obscuring their taller teammates as stars, the 6-foot-4 Irving has all the tools — size, speed, ballhandling — to make an immediate impact for the Cavs. At times, Cleveland’s Princeton offense barely performed up to Ivy League levels last season, frustrating first-year coach Byron Scott. Irving’s not without flaws, however. The major knock on the 19-year-old is that he only played 11 games for the Blue Devils because of a toe injury and there are some who wonder if he needs more grooming. If the Cavs do take him first, Irving will be the third point guard in four years to go No. 1, joining Wall, who went to Washington last year and Rose, picked by Chicago in 2008. He’s a safe, if not sure, pick. “He’s a terrific young point guard, and he’s a true point guard,” ESPN analyst Jay Bilas, a fellow Dookie, said in a conference call. “I do liken him to Chris Paul. But he’s not quite as good as Paul. But if you had taken Chris Paul out his freshman year, you might say the same thing. Iving, what he lacks, that a Wall or a

Rose or guys like that have, he’s not as explosive an athlete. He’s not in that class athletically.” Williams, on the other hand, has off-the-charts athleticism. The 6-foot-8 forward wowed the Cavs during his individual workout last week, when he did all he could to convince them that he can play small forward and not power forward, the position most league insiders believe he’s best suited for. Williams’ visit on Monday was somewhat of a surprise. It’s not clear if the team asked him back or if he requested a second look, which is not uncommon for players slotted to go in the top 10. He averaged 19. 5 points and 8. 3 rebounds last season, but wasn’t considered a lottery pick until he scored 32 in Arizona’s NCAA Tournament win over Duke. The Cavs have toyed with moving up to No. 2, so they could land both Irving and Williams — a two-handed slam dunk in this class. But that seems unlikely unless they can strike a deal with Minnesota, which has entertained offers but seems reluctant to give up the highest pick in franchise history. If Cleveland does pick Williams, Irving won’t fall far. “We’ll take him,” said Timberwolves president David Kahn. “He’s not moving past two.” Williams campaigned to be No. 1, but now seems resigned to the Cavs choosing Irving. “I wouldn’t doubt it,” he said last week. “He’s great.”

Darrell Arthur runs faster, is quicker, more explosive and three inches taller than Xavier Henry and Arthur CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1B lasts until the 27th pick of the 2008 draft and two years proceeded to list red flag later Henry gets chosen with after red flag: He puts way the 12th pick?

A in recent years when drafting long-armed guard deft at finJayhawks. ishing at the rim, shooting

three-pointers and prowling the passing lanes, Chalmers lit up Texas with 30 points in the Big 12 conference tournament title game and he lasted all the way into the second round, the 34th pick? Why Arthur and Chalmers lasted so long and Aldrich and Henry were swept up so early — sure, it was a weaker draft, but still — remains a mystery. So does Brandon Rush. Nothing strange about where Rush was selected, 13th in the 2008 draft. That seemed about right. He’s an enigma in that he hasn’t established himself as a player capable of earning a permanent spot in the starting lineup. He moves his feet so well and has such long arms, he projected as a

stellar NBA defender, but until he learns to use his hands to play more physical defense in the manner Brady Morningstar did at Kansas, he won’t reach his defensive potential. His jumper looks like those in instruction manuals and his touch is so pure. He shot .417 on threes this past season, but that translated to just 9.1 points in 26.2 minutes a game. Mysteries abound in the pool of draft prospects, which makes it logical that the Morris twins keep soaring and Selby appears to be plummeting. The twins have proven so much, Selby so little.

CLEVELAND (AP) — They’re done measuring, timing and talking to prospective draft picks. It’s time for the Cleveland Cavaliers to choose a few. Empowered with the Nos. 1 and 4 picks in Thursday’s NBA draft, the Cavs will spend the next 48 hours deciding who to add to their roster. While all signs indicate they will select Duke point guard Kyrie Irving first overall, the Cavs have not yet made any final decisions. They’ll spend Tuesday and today setting their board and debating their many options, which could include a trade — or two. The Cavs also have two second-round picks (Nos. 32 and 54) and a $14.5 million trade exception, assets they may package with players or owner Dan Gilbert’s cash to make deals. On Monday, the team held its last round of workouts by hosting Arizona forward Derrick Williams, Turkish center Enes Kanter and Kentucky guard Brandon Knight at their suburban training facility. Williams and Kanter were in for their second visits, and the pair also met with Gilbert and some of his kids, adding another layer of mystery to the team’s true intentions. The Cavs have treated this draft with air-tight security, throwing up an impenetrable defense around their plans. Other than a few random tweets on his Twitter account, Gilbert has been out of sight; general manager Chris Grant has made no public comments in weeks and the club



Husband of softball coach Smith dies

Patterson on special teams watch list

The husband of Kansas University softball coach Megan Smith has died. Paul Buske died Tuesday after a bout with cancer, according to KU. He was 40. “The Kansas Athletics family is deeply saddened by Paul’s passing,” said KU athletics director Sheahon Zenger. “He was a terrific husband to Megan and father to Cooper, and was a spirited, supportive fan of Kansas softball. Our thoughts and prayers are with Megan and Cooper during this most difficult time.” Smith has coached the Jayhawks since 2009.

Kansas senior wide receiver/kick returner Daymond Patterson was named to the 2011 College Football Performance Awards (CFPA) specials teams watch list on Monday. Patterson, a senior from Mesquite, Texas, was listed as one of the top punt returners in college football. Patterson has amassed 460 yards on 56 career punt returns through his first three seasons.

ARIZONA DIAMONDBACKS’ KELLY JOHNSON SLIDES PAST Kansas City Royals catcher Matt Treanor as he scores on a double by Justin Upton during the sixth inning. The Royals lost, 7-2, Tuesday in Kansas City, Mo. Diamondbacks’ lead with his 15th home run in the eighth after Stephen Drew walked. The Diamondbacks scored three runs in the seventh. Gerardo Parra stroked a two-run triple to right and scored on Ryan Roberts’ ground out. The Diamondbacks took the lead in the sixth when Justin Upton’s double scored Kelly Johnson, who had a bunt single. Alex Gordon led the Royals with three hits, needing only a single for the cycle, and drove in both runs. He led off the game with a home run and his

triple in the seventh scored Alcides Escobar, who had walked. ●

Notes: OF Jarrod Dyson, who was used primarily as a pinch runner and stole nine bases in as many attempts to start the season for Kansas City, was recalled from Triple-A Omaha, where he hit .288 with 14 stolen bases in 29 games. Manager Ned Yost said Dyson would probably return to the minors Friday when LHP Bruce Chen is reinstated from the disabled list to start that night against

six-inning pitcher,” Yost said. “I want to give him a chance to get through this. But you can only give that opportunity for so long and then you have to make an adjustment.” Hochevar (4-8) is 1-5 in his past eight starts. Hochevar, the first pick in the 2006 draft, yielded five runs on eight hits. He struck out six and walked one in seven innings, with his earned run average climbing to 4.97. “I thought I was pitching pretty well until the seventh and I gave up a couple of hits down the line,” Hochevar said. “Whatever it is, I need to figure it out. I’m going to sit down and watch some video and try to see where it is, if I’m throwing the same in that part of the game as I was in the first part. Whatever it is, we need to figure it out. “It’s really frustrating when a 2-1 game goes to 5-1. I need to find a way to keep things rolling.” Pena, just promoted from Triple-A Reno where he topped the Pacif ic Coast League with 21 home runs, hit a towering shot to right-center with two out in the fifth to tie the score 1-1. Pena’s previous home run was June 24, 2008, while with the Washington Nationals. Joe Saunders (4-7), who s t a r t e d t h e s e a s o n 0 -5, picked up his fourth victory in six starts.

Watermelon good source of lycopene, vitamins

Q: A:

Is watermelon good for you?

Yes, it is. Watermelon is low in calories (46 calories for a one-cup serving, diced) and nutritious, too. In particular, watermelon is an excellent source of the powerful antioxidant lycopene, a red pigment. In fact, watermelon has more lycopene than tomatoes. Watermelon also is low or free of cholesterol, fat and sodium. They are also high in vitamin C, vitamin A and potassium. Also, evidence from a pilot study led by food scientists at Florida State University suggests that watermelon may be an effective natural weapon against prehypertension, a precursor to cardiovascular disease. It is the first investigation of its kind in humans. FSU Assistant Professor Arturo Figueroa and Professor Bahram H. Arjmandi found that when 6 grams of the amino acids L-citrulline/Larginine from watermelon extract were administered daily for six weeks, there was improved arterial function and consequently lowered aortic blood pressure in all nine of their prehypertensive subjects. Q: I’ve heard that thumping a watermelon is a good way of telling if a watermelon is ripe. Is that true? A: Despite common practice, no amount of thumping, tapping, sniffing or shaking can actually give a clue to ripeness. Many watermelons do not emit the proverbial “dull thud” when ripe. For these, the dull thud may

indicate an over-ripe, mushy melon. Better indicators when checking for ripeness are: 1.) If it doesn’t have a well-defined yellow side, it may have been harvested too soon. The bottom of the melon (where it lies on the soil) turns from light green to a yellowish color when ripe 2.) If the curly tendril on the stem is still attached, it should be brown and dry. 3.) The surface color of the fruit should be dull — so pick dull versus shiny watermelon. Q: What’s the best way to store and prepare a watermelon? A: Uncut melon will keep in a cool place for up to two weeks. To prepare, wash the outside of the melon under clean running water before cutting into it, use a clean knife on a clean cutting surface and wash your own hands with soap and water before cutting the melon. Once melon is cut, it should be stored and covered in the refrigerator for two or three days. Don’t leave cut melon at room temperature longer than two hours total time. Check the National

Watermelon Promotion Board Web site for recipes and wonderful carving ideas using watermelon. Here’s some recipes that I’ve recently used. The Watermelon Salad was shared by a former Extension Master Food Volunteer, Eileen Rogers, at a summer gathering. It’s wonderful!

WATERMELON SALAD 1 (5-pound) seedless watermelon 1 vidalia or other sweet onion 1/4 cup red wine vinegar* Salt and pepper 1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil 2 tablespoons chopped fresh mint 4 ounces feta cheese, crumbled Mint sprigs (optional)

Cut the flesh from the melon and cut it into bite-size pieces. Then, set aside. Peel and slice the onion into rings. In a bowl, combine the vinegar, salt, pepper and whisk until salt is dissolved. Slowly whisk in the olive oil, a few drops at a time. Add the chopped mint, adjust to taste. In a large bowl, combine the melon, onion and cheese.

This apple pie treat works on the go By Alison Ladman For The Associated Press

Hand pies with apple filling provide the all-American comfort of apple pie, minus the need for fork and plate. While not a new concept, hand pies turn apple pie into a convenient, easy and messfree treat for Fourth of July celebrations. The term hand pie has been around for a long time; farming cultures used to make them for workers to eat in the field. And they’re different from tarts, which lack top crusts and are cooked in a shallow pan. If apple pie isn’t your favorite, you can make a filling from fresh berries instead. You will need to increase the amount of cornstarch, depending on how juicy your berries are. You want the filling to be thick so it doesn’t ooze out. To add visual appeal, small cookie cutters can be used to create the steam vents in the top rounds of dough. Be sure to do so before placing the dough over the filling.

APPLE HAND PIES 2/3 cup sugar 2 teaspoons cinnamon 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg 1 tablespoon butter 3 small baking apples, such as Granny Smith, peeled, cored and diced (about 2 cups) 2 teaspoons cornstarch 1 teaspoon lemon juice 1 tablespoon water Two 14.1-ounce packages refrigerated pie dough (each package contains

2 rounds of dough) 1 egg 1 tablespoon milk

In a small bowl, combine the sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg. Set aside. In a deep skillet over medium-high heat, melt the butter. Add the apples and 1/3 cup of the sugar mixture. Saute for 3 to 4 minutes, or until just tender. In a small bowl, stir together the cornstarch, lemon juice and water, then add to the apples and stir. Cook until the juices thicken and bubble, about 1 minute. Set the filling aside to cool. Heat the oven to 350 F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper. One at a time, on a lightly floured surface unroll each of the 4 rounds of pie dough. Using a 3-inch circular cookie cutter, cut out 9 rounds from each piece of dough for a total of 36 rounds. In a small bowl, beat together the egg and the milk. To assemble the hand pies, place 1 dough round in front of you. Lightly brush around the

edges of the round with the egg mixture. Place 2 teaspoons of apple filling in the center of the dough. Top with a second round of dough. Gently press down so that the filling is enclosed and the edges of the top round meet the edges of the bottom round. Use a fork to crimp and seal all around the edges. Brush the top with more of the egg mixture and sprinkle with the reserved cinnamon sugar. Use a paring knife to poke a hole in the top to vent steam. Repeat with the remaining dough rounds and filling. Place the hand pies on the baking sheets, leaving 1 inch between them. Bake for 18 to 20 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown. Let cool for 5 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to finish cooling. Makes 18 hand pies.

One of the great things about these beans is that you can basically throw them in the oven and forget about them until you’re hungry. Tonight, I plan to eat the tiny dab that was left over and do it prison-style, so no one else can have them. The only concern on my menu was the slaw. A.) I have a suspicion that most people hate cole slaw. B.) I kind of hate it myself. So I wanted to find a way to make it enjoyable for those of us who are generally “meh” (or worse) on the stuff. I took it to the streets and asked people on The Flying Fork Facebook Page what they do to make their slaw a little more special. I got all manner of awesome responses, ranging from “add wing sauce” to “fruit and nuts” to “go Asian.” And because I cannot resist Asian food ever, I decided to go that direction. First I used the handy dandy (I do watch too much “Blues Clues”) Cuisinart to shred a head of green cabbage. Then I poured in about half a bag of already julienned carrots that I think are from the Baby Jesus. Then I cut very thin slices of half a large red bell pepper and chopped up a whole bundle of green onions, up to the part where they get dark green (and I threw the tops out). That is it for the vegetable part of the show.

GROWING SEASON SALAD 2 cups vegetables (blanched asparagus, beans, chopped cucumbers or zucchini) 1 1/2 cups coarsely chopped tomatoes 1/2 cup diced cheese (or shredded or crumbled) 1/4 cup sweet onions, thin-sliced 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil 3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar Chopped fresh herbs to taste (dill, basil, mint, cilantro or parsley) 2 teaspoons minced, mashed garlic Salt and pepper to taste 5-6 cups bread cubes (stale, but not hard)

Toss all ingredients except bread in large bowl. If time permits, let the mixture stand at room temperature to develop flavor, tossing occasionally, for about 1/2 hour. Toss in bread and serve immediately. Makes 4 servings.

SPINACH SALAD WITH PLUMS AND GOAT CHEESE 2 tablespoons sherry vinegar 1/8 teaspoon sea salt 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil 1 (5-ounce) package baby spinach 3 plums, pitted and thinly sliced 3 ounces Humboldt Fog or other fresh goat cheese, crumbled 2 shallots, thinly sliced 1/2 cup toasted sliced almonds

In a large serving bowl, whisk together vinegar, salt and pepper. Gradually whisk in oil until vinaigrette thickens. Add spinach, plums, cheese, shallots and almonds and toss gently until evenly coated. — Recipe from www.

1/4 cup soy sauce 2 tablespoons sugar 1 tablespoon ginger root, grated 1 teaspoon minced garlic 1 tablespoon sesame seeds, toasted 2 tablespoons cilantro, chopped 6 ounces vegetable oil 3 tablespoons sesame oil 1 pinch salt and pepper

For The Associated Press

Summer grilling season is a great excuse to give the pizza delivery guy a break. Grilling infuses pizza with a wonderful smoky flavor and a crisp, chewy crust. But you need to know a few basics. First, your toppings need to be precooked because the pizza won’t be on the grill long enough to cook them there. Second, it’s important to start with clean, well-oiled grates. The dough will stick to any charred bits of food left on the grates. Finally, start by grilling the dough plain until the bottom is lightly browned. Then oil the top, flip and add your sauce and other toppings, then finish cooking. We’ve opted for a slightly unusual combination of sausage and sweet potato. Classic sliced tomatoes and mozzarella (with fresh basil thrown on after it comes off the grill) or sauteed peppers, onions and zucchini topped with pepper jack cheese also would be great summery options.

It’s likely you are using too much soap. A full cap is only needed for heavily soiled clothes. ● About 90 percent of the energy used for washing clothes is for heating the water. For heavily soiled or greasy clothing, try warm rather than hot - water first. ● Choose the right size load to avoid wasting water, energy and detergent. Try to have a full load every time. ● Hang clothes outside to dry, then finish up in the dryer so clothes aren’t stiff. Outdoor drying is also less stress on your clothes. Fabric, buttons and seams can be damaged from tossing and tumbling in a dryer. ● Maintain your dryer, both for safety and efficiency purposes. Check the lint trap after every load.

Bring a medium saucepan of water to a boil. Peel the sweet potato and slice it into 1/8-inch slices. Drop the slices into the boiling water and boil until just tender, but not falling apart, about 5 to 7 minutes. Drain the sweet potatoes, then set aside. Heat the grill to mediumhigh.

Shake or whisk vigorously and then pour it over the slaw. I did it just a couple of hours in advance so it would have time to soak in a bit but not get soggy. ●

This was seriously awesome and has cured my aversion to slaw, possibly permanently. I think the trick for me is to stay away from creamy and always stick to vinegar-y, which is basically the same policy I have for potato salad as well. I can’t believe it took me well over 30 years to figure this out. Johnny sure seemed to think the eats were OK, particularly the ice cream and cupcakes. — Read more Flying Fork at

build up on the mesh and air won’t circulate properly. Rinse the filter with dish detergent and water every few weeks to make sure the filter is working effectively. Let it dry completely before returning to dryer. ● Every few weeks, unplug your dryer and use your vacuum attachments to clean under and inside. Be sure the exhaust hood on the outside of the home is clear of debris. ● If shopping for a new washer and dryer, buy Energy Star appliances. Energy Star washers use at least 40 percent less energy and up to 65 percent less water than a standard washer. Energy Star dryers spin the water from the clothes better, resulting in less drying time. ● When selecting a dryer, try to find one with a moisture sensor so you will not waste money over-drying clothes.

GRILLED SWEET POTATO AND SAUSAGE PIZZA Grill the sausage slices until charred and cooked through, about 3 minutes per side. Remove from the grill and set aside. Clean the grill grates and brush with oil. Stretch the pizza dough into a rough circle, about 14 inches in diameter. Lower the grill to medium heat, then set the dough on the grate. Close the lid and grill for 5 to 7 minutes, or until the bottom is toasted and golden. Brush the top of the pizza crust with half of the olive oil and flip over. Brush again with the remaining oil. Top with the sweet potato slices, the cooked sausage pieces and the mozzarella slices. Close the grill and cook for 7 to 8 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and the bottom of the crust is golden and crispy. Remove from the grill and sprinkle with salt, pepper and thyme.

SUMMER SALADS don’t just have to be lettuce, tomato and carrot. Try Spinach Salad with Plums and Goat Cheese (left) or Big Beautiful Salad with Lemon-Miso dressing (right and in the smaller bowl, shown at bottom right.)


Spice up the summer favorite with new flavor combinations By Sarah Henning

Salad should be a summer staple in every household, given the abundance of seasonal faves for the salad bowl, including tomatoes, carrots and cucumbers. But there’s more to the summer salad’s DNA than just the obvious. With a few adjustments, you can chow down on a salad with an Asian flair. Work in cooked summer treats like green beans and zucchini. Or add a tangy goat cheese or sweet seasonal berries.

Whatever the case or your tastes, we are in prime salad-eating time. Don’t spend it with the same-old, same-old of lettuce, carrots, tomatoes, cheese and croutons.

BIG BEAUTIFUL SALAD WITH LEMON-MISO DRESSING 4 ounces (about 8 cups) mixed baby lettuces 1/2 small head radicchio, chopped 1 (15-ounce) can no-salt-added garbanzo beans, rinsed and drained 1 1/2 cups cooked and cooled wheat berries or barley 1 bunch radishes, whole, halved or quartered

1 cucumber, thinly sliced 3 tablespoons lemon juice 3 tablespoons apple juice 3 tablespoons white miso paste 1 shallot, finely chopped

In a very large bowl, combine lettuce, radicchio, garbanzos, wheat berries, radishes and cucumber. In a small bowl, whisk together lemon juice, apple juice, miso, shallot and 1 tablespoon water. Drizzle dressing over the salad and toss. Serves 8. — Recipe from Please see SALAD, page 7B

Famous beans and spicy Asian slaw please party crowd “THE FLYING FORK” “ J une 19th, also known as Juneteenth, is the celebration day of emancipation in Texas, which is a pretty neat holiday by my count. But it’s also my friend Trina’s birthday, and this year it also fell on Father’s Day, and we couldn’t think of three better reasons to throw a pool party than those. Also, it’s a Sunday in mid-June. And the pool? It has water in it. Two more good reasons. Additionally, all that old dilapidated lawn furniture we owned? I painted it all and brought it back to life. Yet another really good reason. So, we invited some people over who might be interested in celebrating Father’s Day or Trina Day

... We invited some people over who might be interested in celebrating Father’s Day or Trina Day or Juneteenth or There’s Water in the Pool Day.”

or Juneteenth or There’s Water in the Pool Day. Lindsey and I told everyone we’d make the sides if they’d bring their own meat for the grill and got to work planning our part of the menu. We decided on the classics: baked beans, potato salad, bean and corn salsa, cole slaw, cru-

dites, spinach salad, homemade ice cream and cupcakes. I was tasked with potato salad, cole slaw, crudites/dip, Rotel cheese dip (birthday girl’s request), caesar spread, watermelon, cupcakes (yellow cake with sticky chocolate icing — the best), and chocolate ice cream. Lindsey did baked beans, spinach salad, corn and bean salsa, Blue Moon cupcakes and vanilla ice cream. Plus she manned the grill ALL. DAY. LONG. And cooked up a bajillion hot dogs, burgers, pieces of chicken and giant manly steaks for the dads. Whew. Talk about overkill. Overkill,


a blog by Megan Stuke however, is how we roll. Is there another way? The crowd favorite of the day was definitely Lindsey’s beans and had I been able to pry my toddler out of the pool I’d have taken a picture of them, but you’ll just have to trust me on this one: They were FANTASTIC.

4 cans of pork and beans, drained 2 cans of Great Northern beans, drained 1/4 cup jarred jalapenos (less if using fresh) 2 cups dark brown sugar 1 1/4 cup ketchup 4 tablespoon Dijon mustard 3 tablespoon cider vinegar 6 slices of bacon, cooked and crumbled A couple good shakes of Worcestershire

Pour beans into a 9-by-13-inch baking dish and add all ingredients. Mix well. Cook uncovered at 300 degrees for an hour, longer if dinner isn’t ready or you’re enjoying your cocktail. Please see FORK, page 7B

Eating disorder an unhealthy way to keep weight off

Dear E.D.: The binge-andpurge cycle of eating disorders is extremely harmful to the body. It can cause dehydration, fatigue, ulcers, tooth decay, ruptured stomach, swelling, a weakened heart muscle and more. We understand the pressure you are under to maintain the weight you have lost, and you are smart to recognize that this is not a healthy way to do it. Please don’t keep your eating disorder a secret.

to visit. Maybe tomorrow.” And then close the door. Be polite and friendly, but don’t let her inside, even if she tries to bribe you with a homemade pie. But we hope you won’t shut her out completely. She is desperate for company, and you might visit on occasion and encourage her to participate in community activities. In the meantime, it’s OK to set boundaries and be firm about them.

Dear Annie: A few weeks ago, my husband and I moved into a lovely apartment in a quiet neighborhood. Shortly after, an older next-door neighbor knocked on our door with a homemade pie and introduced herself. Naturally, we were pleased at her kindness and invited her in to visit. Since then, however, “Doris” has been knocking on our door at all hours of the day with food or “just to chat.” My husband and I both work and do not have a lot of time to ourselves. Doris is apparently home all day, because the minute she hears or sees one of us, she pops in. When she does this at dinner, we feel obligated to invite her to join us. She also has been very inquisitive about our personal lives, asking ques-

‘Life on a Wire’ shows tension in acrobatic family You can defy death, but don't cross Dad. That's the lesson of "Life on a Wire" (9 p.m., Discovery), a new series set in the high-stakes world of acrobatics as practiced by the Wallenda family for seven generations. In the pilot episode, young Nik plans to shatter several records by riding a bicycle and walking a remarkable distance between resort hotels — all on a high wire without a net. Most of "Wire" consists of the meticulous detail involved in planning these events. As we're shown, repeatedly, Nik's Great-Grandfather Karl was killed in a similar stunt in 1978. This sad memory and natural generational tension lead Nik to spar frequently with his father, Terry. Nobody can doubt that the Wallendas are true originals. But "Life on a Wire" borrows from many other reality series and echoes familiar themes and lessons. The science-based prep work is not unlike "MythBusters." The battles between Nik and Terry would not be unfamiliar to fans of the Teutuls. At least pre-lawsuit. "Wire" continues reality TV's focus on tight, supportive and slightly suffocating families. The genre has seen its share of families crack under the pressure and glare of production and publicity. The above-mentioned Teutuls, the Hogans, the Gosselins and any number of "Real Housewife" siblings no longer on speaking terms are among the more notable casualties. This theme of family as fate is not limited to reality fare. Scripted melodramas aimed at teens and tweens put great emphasis on secret, inescapable futures preordained by blood. In shows like "Vampire Diaries" and "The Nine Lives of Chloe King," characters submit to dark destinies not of their choosing. Is this teenage fatalism? Or a generation's painful adjustment to lowered expectations? In an earlier television age, even familyfriendly Christmas stories celebrated the individual and free will. In "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer," Rudolph's jock dad hated his son's blinking crimson defect and wanted him to conform to the reindeer standard. But he soon learned that the kid's very difference was key to his heroics. Even Rudolph's pal Hermey the Elf got to abandon generations of toy-making and follow his dream to become a dentist. It's a good thing he wasn't born a Wallenda. ● Cat Deeley hosts the Critics' Choice Television Awards (7 p.m., Reelz). As if anybody cares what critics think! ● Teams of familiar faces from "Real World" and other reality series compete on "The Challenge: Rivals" (9 p.m., MTV). Think of it as Battle of the NonNetwork Stars!

Tonight’s other highlights ● The "MythBusters" (8 p.m., Discovery) put the realism of Hollywood fight scenes to the test. ● Two hours of competition on "America's Got Talent" (8 p.m, NBC). ● "Primetime” (9 p.m., ABC) explores the remarkable connection between twins. ● Car dealers are observed on "Men of a Certain Age" (9 p.m., TNT). ● Host Matt Iseman recalls the 10 filthiest home visits on "Clean House: Best of the Worst Messiest Home Moments" (9:30 p.m., Style).

JACQUELINE BIGAR’S STARS For Wednesday, June 22: This year, your ability to visualize and create pinnacles. You can see and imagine things, objects and situations that to many people are not even conceivable. If you are single, you might be drawn to someone who is emotionally unavailable. If you are attached, the two of you benefit from frequent downtime together. Pisces draws you in close. The Stars Show the Kind of Day You'll Have: 5Dynamic; 4-Positive; 3Average; 2-So-so; 1-Difficult Aries (March 21-April 19) ★★★ You might want to understand more of what motivates you. What you see as a possibility, though not verbalized, probably needs to be jumped on. Tonight: Get some extra R and R. Taurus (April 20-May 20) ★★★★★ A meeting could prove to be instrumental and moves your mind in a new direction. You might wonder what is best to do under the circumstances. Tonight: Brainstorm away till the wee hours. Gemini (May 21-June 20) ★★★★ A statement goes far, but there is an intrinsic rebellion within you. The issue is determin-

ing the best way to handle this situation. Tonight: Work as late as need be. Cancer (June 21-July 22) ★★★★★ A situation invites you to stretch beyond your comfort level. Knowing how to break past self-imposed rigidity might be more important than you realize. Tonight: Relax ... choose a fun mental diversion. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) ★★★★ Work directly with a partner or associate whom you find unusually inspiring. Be aware of the demands around you to take a more active role. Tonight: Allow someone else to make the first move. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) ★★★★ Recognize that the smart move is often to let someone have his or her way. Finding agreement could be difficult, and you tumble back and forth as far as finding a resolution. Tonight: Go with a dinner invitation. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) ★★★★ The only answer is "yes." Be willing to take on a situation that could be difficult. Tonight: Manifesting an idea will take time. Expect to work late. Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) ★★★★★ Your playfulness might be intriguing, but what really sets others back is your ability to move

on a very strong, intuitive, gut level. Tonight: Go with the moment. Sagittarius (Nov. 22Dec. 21) ★★★★ Deal with a partner directly. You might be prone to calling it a day early, as other matters seem to float into your mind from out of nowhere. Tonight: Out and about — invite a key person. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) ★★★★ You might assume that there is another way or approach that might be better. Listen to what a partner or several people share. Tonight: Hanging out. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) ★★★ Your nurturing approach draws many people in. How you deal with a situation could change radically if you remain open and coherent. Tonight: Relax with the moment. Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) ★★★★ Your playfulness takes you to a new level and helps a child or new friend relax. Don't hesitate to explore a newfound creativity. Tonight: Just make it fun. — The astrological forecast should be read for entertainment only.

Dear Annie: I am a 20-yearold male who recently developed an eating disorder. I’ve lost almost 50 pounds from restricting, purging and overexercising. Even though I get a lot of compliments on my weight loss, I am nowhere near where I’d like to be. My parents notice that I don’t eat very much, but as soon as I eat a little more, my mother makes comments on how I’m going to gain the weight back. Even my doctor thinks I should lose a bit more. Honestly, I’m at my limit here. I’m afraid to stop purging because I’ll just binge and put the weight back on. I realize I have a distorted body image and recently started causing external harm to my body because I’m not happy with what I see. How can I be satisfied and not end up seriously hurt? — E.D.
