KU gets National Cancer Institute designation By George Diepenbrock and Andy Hyland,

Kansas University’s Cancer Center will receive its long-sought Na-

tional Cancer Institute designation, with a formal announcement expected in mid-July, sources said Thursday night. The news was first released by U.S. Sen. Pat Roberts, R-Kan., on his

Facebook page. “I am pleased that The University of Kansas has been given a green light and I look forward to a formal announcement of their National Cancer Institute designation,” Rob-

erts posted. KU applied for the designation in September, after working for seven years and investing more than $350 million toward the effort that would be a boon for the local econo-

my and offer promising new treatments to cancer patients in the region. Last September, KU officials said the effort had already created 1,123 jobs and contributed $453 million to the region’s economy.

“The announcement’s on its way, and I’m excited,” Ed McKechnie, chairman of the Kansas Board of Regents, said Thursday evening. More details would be Please see KU, page 2A

Historic health care law upheld What does it mean, exactly?

Local reaction mostly positive ——

LMH CEO fears increased demand will strain system

What does the court’s ruling mean for me? The Supreme Court decision upholding President Barack Obama’s health care law affects nearly every American. The law tells almost e v e r y one they must have Obama h e a l t h coverage and guarantees it will be available to them even if they are already ill or need hugely expensive care. It helps the poor and many middle-class people afford coverage. What the justices said The high court upheld almost all of the law, including the most disputed part: the mandate that virtually all Americans have health insurance or pay a fine. The court said that fine is essentially a tax, and that’s why the government has the power to impose it. The ruling limited the law’s plan to expand the Medicaid insurance program for the poor, a joint effort of the federal government and states. It says the U.S. government cannot withhold a state’s entire Medicaid allotment if it doesn’t participate in the expansion. Chief Justice John Roberts sided with the court’s Please see OVERVIEW, page 2A

Brownback favors a wait-and-see approach By John Hanna Associated Press

TOPEKA — Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback said Thursday he wants to wait until after the presidential election to comply with a key provision of the federal health care overhaul upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court, but the state’s Republican insurance commissioner objected. Brownback, also a Republican, told reporters that putting the 2010 health care law into effect in Kansas and other states is a political issue to be resolved by voters in November. “If the American people don’t want Obamacare, it’s a political issue, and it’s about this fall presidential race,

A look at where Kansas stands on implementing President Barack Obama’s federal health care overhaul, which the Supreme Court ruled Thursday can go forward: Number of uninsured: 350,000 state residents are uninsured, or about 13 percent. Where the state stands: The Republican-dominated state government has been hostile to the 2010 federal law and hasn’t moved to set up an online health insurance marketplace. Last year, GOP Gov. Sam Brownback’s administration returned a $31.5 million federal grant given to help set up an exchange. What happens now: Brownback wants to wait until after the November presidential election to decide what to do about the online marketplace and whether the state will expand its Medicaid program. He predicts that if GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney is elected, states won’t have to put either in effect.

whether or not you want to implement it,” Brownback said. “I want to see what happens in the fall.” Brownback Brownback said that if GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney unseats Democratic President Barack Obama, who championed the law, states are no longer likely to face a requirement to set up exchanges to help consumers buy health insurance. Exchanges would be online marketplaces for health insurance, allowing consumers to comparison Please see BROWNBACK, page 6A

A handful of state and Lawrence health leaders said Thursday that they believe President Barack Obama’s health care plan is a step in the right direction when it comes to filling the gaps in the health care system, and they were relieved that the Supreme Court upheld the law. While it’s not perfect, it’s better Praeger than the status quo, they said. Kansas Insurance Commissioner Sandy Praeger said, “This is a first step in creating a health care system that works for all of our citizens. The law will be refined as we go forward, just as many laws are, but it establishes as public policy the importance of everyone in this country having access to affordable health care.” An estimated 350,000 Kansans, including 14,000 in Douglas County, don’t have insurance coverage, and even more have insurance that is inadequate to cover them if they get sick or have an accident. “I think it’s a step toward more people having

The taxing truth When the law was before Congress, Obama and Democrats avoided calling its penalty for going uninsured a “tax.” But the administration argued before the Supreme Court that the law was constitutional as a federal tax. The court rejected two other Obama administration arguments for the law but accepted the tax one. In 2016, after the law is fully in place, about 4 million people will pay the penalty to the Internal Revenue Service for being uninsured, the Congressional Budget Office has estimated. They would pay $695 per uninsured adult or 2.5 percent of family income, up to $12,500 per year. The IRS can’t prosecute violators or place liens against them, however. Its only enforcement option may be withholding money from refunds. What are Republicans saying? “Obamacare was bad law yesterday. It’s bad law today,” Romney said after the ruling. The Republican-led House already has voted for repeal but can’t push it forward so long as Obama’s in the White House and Democrats lead the Senate — making the November elections crucial. Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell called the court decision “a fresh start on the road to repeal.” Obama’s reaction Obama says the decision upholds the fundamental principle that in the wealthiest nation on earth, no one should be ruined financially by an illness or accident. He called it “a victory for people all over this country whose lives will be more secure because of this law.” About that mandate Many parts of the law have proven popular. But the insurance mandate is widely disliked. Each time AP has asked in polls, more than 8 in 10 Americans have said the government should not have the right to require everyone to buy health insurance. The public also has tilted against the law as a whole over the two years since it was passed. About half opposed it and a third were in favor in an APGfK poll shortly before the Supreme Court ruled.



forthcoming later, he said. Tim Caboni, KU’s vice chancellor for public affairs, would not comment beyond a brief statement Thursday night. “On the 12th of July, we will make a formal announcement regarding NCI,” he said. Roy Jensen, director of the KU Cancer Center, on Thursday said only that KU still had yet to receive official word on its NCI designation. Officials have said the prestigious designation would mean more federal research dollars and the high-paying jobs that come with them. Cancer patients would have access to clinical trials open only to patients at NCIdesignated centers. “All I can say is that we think some good news is headed toward KU,” Sarah Little, a Roberts spokeswoman, said Thursday night. “We received some positive correspondence but understand an official notice is coming.” McKechnie said the successful effort reflected the hard work and vision of many people along the way, including university leaders in Lawrence and at KU Medical Center, hospital leaders across the state in the Midwest Cancer Alliance, and outside agencies like the Kansas Bioscience Authority. “The list is longer than that,” he said of people who played a big role in the designation. Still, he said, the work was not complete. “This is but a waypoint of what the real goal is, and that is to become a comprehensive cancer center,” McKechnie said. Becoming a comprehensive cancer center would require an additional designation from the NCI that is the highest designation an academic cancer center can receive. Jensen told the Journal-World last week that KU and state officials were optimistic about the chances to receive the NCI designation based on the score the center received after a review process. NCI reviewers on Feb. 22 visited the KU Medical Center Campus in Kansas City, Kan. But Jensen said a key factor in the decision would hinge on the amount of federal funding available for a new cancer center. The final hurdle was the president’s National Cancer Advisory Board, which considers NCI grant applications, including those for cancer center designations, in closed session. That board met Monday in Bethesda, Md., but KU did not hear after the meeting whether its application was approved. NCI press officials said the board forwards its decisions back to a grants review committee that would notify applicants, but word got out Thursday night. Leaders at KU in 2005 made pursuit of NCI designation the university’s top research priority. A fundraising council in Kansas City helped generate $62 million for the effort, and the Hall Family Foundation separately contributed a $10.5 million gift.

No relief in sight from heat days. Highs reached 115 Wednesday in Hill City. On Thursday, temperatures in Hill City were expected to top out at only 108 degrees — but Thursday’s official high was 111. So far this month, nearly 40 people in Kansas have gone to hospitals across the state suffering from heat stroke or heat exhaustion, said Miranda Steele, spokeswoman for the Kansas Department of Health and Environment. Heat also contributed to two deaths in May, she said.

No corner of Kansas has been spared. Of the 23 cities whose high temperatures are reported each evening by the National Weather Service, 22 had highs in triple digits Thursday, including Russell at 110 degrees, Hays at 109, and Dodge City, Liberal and Salina all at 108. Chanute was the least scorching — at 99 degrees. Jakub said the heat is the result of an upperlevel high pressure zone sitting over the Central Plains that is refusing to break down or move out of the area. 609 N.H. (offices) • 645 N.H.

‘Day After’ cast, crew celebrate 30-year reunion

Staging a classic

Lawrence likely to challenge Census numbers

By Chansi Long

By Chad Lawhorn

New numbers from the U.S. Census Bureau on Thursday did nothing to clear up a mystery surrounding just how many people live inside the Lawrence city limits. The Census’ latest report estimates Lawrence had a population of 88,727 people on July 1, 2011 — or about 4,000 fewer people than city planners estimate live in the city. Thursday’s report wasn’t expected to solve the mystery. To do that, city leaders will have to formally challenge the Census Bureau’s count taken in 2010. City planning director Scott McCullough said his office likely will file an appeal by late August, but the process is complicated. “We can’t just tell them that we’ve counted more people than they did,” McCullough said. Instead, city planners are basing their appeal on the idea that Census Bureau officials did not have an accurate listing of all the housing units in the city limits. The issue has become about more than just a number. Census totals are used in drawing federal and state boundaries for congressional and legislative districts. The totals also are important in distributing federal dollars

SUMMER DANCE THEATRE at the Lawrence Arts Center is putting on “The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe” at 7 p.m. today. The cast held a dress rehearsal Thursday, featuring, in top photo, center, Lauren Eichler; in left photo, Clara Ketchell, right, and Maya Sabatini; and, in bottom photo, Francesca Dessert. The performance is adapted from C.S. Lewis’ “The Chronicles of Narnia.”

On a Saturday morning 30 years ago, Dennis Constance left home early. Wearing a tattered T-shirt and jeans, Constance was going to be in “The Day After,” the made-for-TV film about nuclear fallout. The movie was being filmed in Lawrence and ABC was in need of actors. Extras, mainly, that would play bit parts, looking scruffy and in some cases sick and horrified. On Thursday evening, Constance and other former cast and crew members gathered at Watkins Museum for a 30th reunion. About 50 people popped into the museum to view an exhibit and swap stories. Thirty years ago in August, production for “The Day After” began. Most extras were Lawrence residents. Their instructions were simple: look dirty. Constance listened well. When he arrived, a crew inspected him, approved his appearance and gestured him to the set. Those who weren’t mussed enough were told to roll in the dirt. Others were doctored with movie makeup, given scars and burns and, in some cases, asked to shave their heads. The batch of extras who transformed their appearance fetched $40 to $75.

Hearing set in child abuse case By George Diepenbrock

A Douglas County judge Thursday scheduled an Aug. 10 preliminary hearing for two suburban Chicago parents whose children were found bound and blindfolded earlier this month outside the Walmart in west Lawrence. At that hearing District Judge Paula Martin will hear evidence and decide whether Adolfo Gomez Jr., 52, and Deborah Gomez, 43, both of Northlake, Ill., should

BRIEFLY Football player’s DUI charge dismissed Douglas County prosecutors Thursday dismissed a DUI charge against former Kansas University and NFL football player Elvis Patterson related to a June 4, 2011, traffic stop east of Lawrence. Patterson, 51, Lenexa, pleaded guilty to two traffic infractions, refusing a preliminary breath test and speeding for going 12 mph over the speed limit on Kansas Highway 10. District Judge Michael Malone ordered Patterson to pay $260 in fines and court costs. Assistant District Attorney Greg Benefiel said prosecutors agreed to dismiss the DUI count after reviewing a video of the stop. Patterson had communicated to Douglas County Sheriff’s officers he had a medical condition that affected his ability to perform field sobriety tests. “We determined that the case could not be proven beyond a reasonable doubt,” Benefiel said.

Senior Services providing free fans Douglas County Senior Services Inc., 745 Vt., has 35 fans available for free for people 60 and older. Westar Energy employees donated the fans. “As long as we have (the fans) we want to make them available to people who need them,” said Janet Ikenberry, community services manager at Douglas County Senior Services. It is important for the elderly to take precautions during times of excessive heat because they are at a greater risk of injury and illness caused by heat. Ikenberry said that if seniors need a cool place to stay out of the heat, the Lawrence Senior Center is open 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.

Applications sought for school supplies The Douglas County East Central Kansas Economic

Opportunity Corporation, or ECKAN, has begun accepting applications for its annual program that provides school supplies to children in need. The agency provides school supplies to Douglas County public school children whose household incomes fall at or below 185 percent of federal poverty guidelines. A family of two earning $27,990.50 would qualify, as would a family of three earning $35,316.50 and a family of four earning $42,642.50. Applications will be accepted through July 31 at the ECKAN center’s office, 2518 Ridge Court, Suite 104. The program is also accepting donations of school supplies or money; financial contributions can be mailed to ECKAN of Douglas County, 2518 Ridge Court, Suite 104, Lawrence, KS 66046, and should be clearly marked for the school supplies program.

CASA tries new fundraising approach Douglas County CASA will host a new fundraiser, CASABlanca, at 7 p.m. July 28 at Maceli’s, 1031 N.H. The event will include live music and casino games. Tickets, $40 in advance and $50 at the door, will include drinks, appetizers and desserts. The organization is deviating this year from its annual Casa for CASA Playhouse raffle, but the new event will include a People’s Choice Award honoring 20 years of the CASA playhouses. “With funding challenges and an increase in child abuse and neglect cases in our community, we’re hoping that a new approach will yield positive results at a critical time,” said Douglas County CASA director Diana Frederick. CASA trains volunteers who serve as advocates for abused and neglected children who are under the care of the court system in Douglas County.

to communities. Increasingly, they’ve also become important for local planning efforts. Here’s perhaps the largest example: City commissioners are studying when to build a $54 million sewer treatment plant south of the Wakarusa River. A new City Hall report says the plant needs to be online by the time the city’s population reaches 105,000 people. But counted by whom? Using the city’s estimates, Lawrence will reach the 105,000 population mark in six years, meaning the city needs to begin design work right away. But if the city continues growing at the pace the Census Bureau reports, it will take 18 years for the city to hit the 105,000 mark. City Manager David Corliss said figuring out the population total is a priority. He said if the city waits too long to build the sewer plant it could slow future growth by creating a time period when the city doesn’t have the capacity to add new homes or businesses. But if the city builds the plant too soon, it would have an expensive piece of infrastructure in place well before there are enough ratepayers to pay for it. “It is important for us to

Megan Gilliland, the city’s communications manager, provided this information: This is a form of bike infrastructure called a “sharrow” or shared-use lane because the road width does not allow enough room for a dedicated bike lane. The markings are appropriate for a shared-use lane and are meant to notify the driver and cyclist that the road is shared.

A 36-year-old man pleaded no contest Thursday to making a criminal threat for a February incident in which a woman said she was threatened with a tree branch while downtown. Prosecutors said they believed Corey M. Martin faces probation in the case because his past criminal history likely only includes misdemeanor convictions. Lawrence police arrested Martin, who had a Kansas City, Mo., address then but is now staying in Lawrence, after he was accused of speaking aggressively to a woman about 5:20 a.m. Feb. 21 in the 1000 block of Massachusetts Street while he held a large tree branch in a threatening manner. He was originally charged with aggravated assault. During a March hearing, Martin refuted the charges and said he had picked up the branch for protection because he had been the victim of an assault earlier. He was later sent to Larned State Hospital for an evaluation. District Judge Paula Martin scheduled Corey

Lawrence police arrested a 27-year-old Lawrence woman about 1 a.m. Thursday on Kansas Highway 10 after she fled from an attempted traffic stop near 23rd Street and Haskell Avenue. Sgt. Trent McKinley, a police spokesman, said the driver failed to yield to an officer and continued driving east, stopping east of East 1650 Road outside Lawrence. She was booked into jail on charges of reckless driving, DUI, fleeing or attempting to elude police and misdemeanor battery on a law enforcement officer. “Once arrested, the driver became combative and resisted the officer and jail personnel,” he said. “The driver spat on the officer and jail personnel.” According to court records, Douglas County prosecutors Thursday charged the woman, Jamie L. Eisenbarger, with DUI, misdemeanor battery on a law enforcement officer, fleeing or attempting to elude police and speeding. In other incidents overnight, Lawrence police were notified at 12:10 a.m. about a report of a strongarmed robbery at a parking lot of an apartment complex near Sixth and Michigan streets, McKinley said. The victim alleged three people she knew took her property, and McKinley said the incident was still under investigation after officers spoke with two witnesses and attempted to locate the suspects. Police also conducted a traffic stop after receiving a call at 1:48 a.m. about a vehicle driving the wrong way on Tennessee Street, which is a one-way southbound street. Police issued several citations to the driver after the stop, McKinley said. Around 2:50 a.m., officers took a man suspected of hallucinating after inhaling bath salts into custody without incident in the 2100 block of West 26th Street. McKinley said a witness called officers and reported the man was wearing only a tank top and making suicidal and homicidal comments. Lawrence-Douglas County Fire Medical workers took the man to Lawrence Memorial Hospital. — Reporter George Diepenbrock can be reached at 832-7144. Follow him at

• Lawrence police on Thursday morning arrested a 34-year-old Lawrence man who was accused of stealing numerous meat and seafood items from the Dillons at 4701 W. Sixth St., and then trying to steal a cart full of the same items at 8 a.m. from another Dillons store, 3000 W. Sixth St., before a manager stopped him. Sgt. Trent McKinley, a police spokesman, said the manager provided the man’s description to officers, who found the suspect, Jeremy Ray Kriner, in the 3000 block of Bainbridge Circle. Police arrested him after officers found numerous meat and seafood items in the back seat of the vehicle. Kriner posted $400 bond about noon Thursday and was given notice to appear in Lawrence Municipal Court July 17 on charges of theft and interference with duties of an officer. • Lawrence police just before noon Friday arrested an 18-year-old Lawrence man accused of attempting to commit an auto burglary in the 800 block of Maine Street, said Sgt. Trent McKinley, a police spokesman.

McKinley said the victim observed a man inside his 2007 Dodge Ram pickup truck and in possession of a purse that belonged to the victim’s wife. The victim and his son confronted the suspect, chased him and later captured him near Eighth and Alabama streets. A second suspect was not located. Douglas County prosecutors will make a decision about filing formal charges for the man arrested. • Crown Toyota, 3430 Iowa, reported that a 2005 Dodge Ram worth $7,307 was stolen from its lot some time between 6 p.m. Tuesday and 3 p.m. Wednesday, according to police reports.

coverage, which is a good thing,” said Nikki White, executive director of Health Care Access, a medical clinic in Lawrence that provides care for lowincome, uninsured residents in Douglas County. “All indicators show that those without coverage prolong seeking care or treatment for a condition, which will probably make that condition worse and more expensive to treat in the long haul.” Health Care Access provides about 10,000 appointments for roughly 3,000 patients annually. The clinic’s goal is to provide care for those who have no place to turn, but still many seek care in Lawrence Memorial Hospital’s emergency room across the street. Between June 1, 2011, and May 31, 2012, there were 5,357 ER visits by uninsured patients. LMH President and CEO Gene Meyer said he hopes the Affordable Care Act will help residents gain access to medical care, but he is concerned there won’t be enough health care providers, especially ones that take Medicaid or accept insurance from the new insurance exchange. “If we don’t have enough providers, then unfortunately the continued inappropriate use of the emergency room for primary care will continue,” he said. Fortunately, he said, Lawrence safety net clinic Heartland Community Health Center was designated last week as a Federally Qualified Health Center, or FQHC. That means the clinic will receive a renewable annual grant award of $650,000 and enhanced Medicaid and Medicare reimbursement. The grant will help the clinic greatly expand its services and provide more care. It expects to be able to take care of twice as many patients in the first year, increasing from 5,000 to 10,000. Heartland CEO Jon Stewart said the funding came through the Affordable Care Act, which expanded its community health centers program. Heartland would have received the money whether the court had upheld the decision or not. “I am very supportive of elements of the Affordable Care Act that provide care for people that otherwise don’t have it. I think it’s an imperfect plan, but I haven’t seen a better alternative,” Stewart said.


Lawrence resident Larry A. Franklin Sr. is looking forward to turning 65 in August because he will have health insurance for the first time in more than 20 years. That’s because he will be on Medicare, a government-run program. “Finally, I will have in-


shop, and are sometimes described as the health coverage equivalent of websites such as Travelocity. The federal law requires each state to operate an exchange by 2014, and plans must be submitted by Nov. 16 to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. Kansas hasn’t started to set one up because Brownback and Republicans who control the Legislature oppose the entire law.

Praeger’s stance Insurance Commissioner Sandy Praeger said the state has an obligation to move forward now that the law has been upheld. She said the state still has a chance to have some say in how an insurance exchange is run in Kansas — power it’s likely to forfeit if it delays decisions. “I think there is still a belief that somehow if we have a new administration, that this potentially could

surance,” he said. Franklin said he has looked into buying health insurance many times, but the premiums were more than he could afford because he has a pre-existing condition: Type 2 diabetes. Some insurance plans, he said, were about $2,000 per month. “The premiums were so outlandish that it was more than I made per month,” he said. Franklin said he received treatment at Health Care Access for a while, but then earned too much to qualify for services. About five years ago, he started going to Heartland, which provides primary care for those who are uninsured and for those who have Medicaid, Medicare or private insurance. The fees are based on a person’s ability to pay. “They offered people like myself an opportunity to have health care,” Franklin said. “Otherwise, I may have been dead years ago. I certainly appreciate their work.” Franklin said he’s glad the Supreme Court upheld the federal health care law because he believes it will help people who are in a Catch-22 where they make too much to qualify for government programs but not enough to afford insurance. More importantly, insurance companies will no longer be able to deny coverage because of pre-existing conditions or charge more. Meanwhile, his son Larry “L.J.” Franklin Jr., 40, of Topeka, is a little more skeptical of the benefits of the federal legislation. He, too, is uninsured and has been for his entire adult life. He took over his dad’s downtown Lawrence barber shop, where his dad works part-time now. “I have been very fortunate to have good health for most of my life,” he said. L.J. said if he feels sick or needs medical attention, he finds a doctor and all go away,” Praeger said during a news conference. “What’s the harm in preparing for the eventuality that things don’t change? I think Kansans are still better off if we try to keep all of our options open.” Praeger said it’s too late for Kansas to develop its own exchange, but it still could seek a partnership with the federal government or have the federal government run the exchange. She said that would allow Kansas to determine which companies can sell coverage and to handle consumer complaints.

Stark differences The Supreme Court decision is likely to frustrate and anger many Kansas Republicans. Freshman U.S. Rep. Tim Huelskamp, a GOP conservative, promised to work for the law’s repeal and called Thursday “a definitive date in the advance of government tyranny.” Other members of the state’s all-Republican delegation in Congress promised to work to repeal the law. Brownback said if Rom-

L AWRENCE J OURNAL -W ORLD works out a payment plan. He realizes that he has been rolling the dice and that he may need more medical care as he grows older, but he falls into the Catch-22 area, like his father. He said he hopes the federal law will provide moreaffordable insurance, but he believes the prices will increase because insurance companies will be covering more people. “I think it will work the same as minimum wage,” he said. “The federal government will raise it and then everybody makes more, but then everything else goes up. It’s a wash. You are right back where you started.” He said he will weigh his options when it comes time to decide whether to buy insurance or pay the penalty for not getting coverage.


Anna Lambertson, executive director of the Kansas Health Consumer Coalition, was on the steps of the U.S. Supreme Court when the ruling was made and was thrilled with the decision. “We have so many people in Kansas who have waited for a long time to be able to afford health insurance,” she said. “For me, the need is just so great. So I think it’s a big law speaking to a really big need.” Lambertson said the coalition has an advocate who is a brain cancer survivor and he struggled for years to get insurance coverage because he had cancer. She said he recently gained insurance because he became a state employee. “We all are literally a day away from losing a job or losing our insurance coverage, so even for people who have coverage today, if we lost our job tomorrow, we would be stuck out there and that’s not fair,” she said. “Everybody should be able to get coverage even if they have a pre-existing condition.” She said the Affordable Care Act has been helping Kansas in many ways, including keeping young adults on their parents’ insurance and helping seniors who are on Medicare with their prescription drug costs. She described the individual insurance mandate as the glue that helps make the legislation work. “If you don’t have everybody covered, you end up with only people who have chronic conditions and are very sick in the insurance market, and that drives up premiums. You need to keep the healthy people insured as well so premiums can stay low for everybody,” she said. She said the individual mandate also is about personal responsibility. She said every American will use the health care system at some point. “It’s about everybody being in the system. So when it comes time to use the system, which we all do, we’ve contributed,” she said. — Health reporter Karrey Britt can be reached at 832-7190.

ney is elected, states are likely to get a blanket waiver from the requirement to have exchanges. Kansas House Insurance Committee Chairman Clark Shultz, a Lindsborg Republican, said state officials ought to at least discuss what options Kansas has should an exchange be required. “It seems that we should at least have something in mind on how we go forward if we need to,” Shultz said. Kansas House Minority Leader Paul Davis, a Lawrence Democrat, predicted that even if Romney is elected, he’ll have to consider creating exchanges as part of any plan for reforming the health care system. “He is going to have to deal with the rising cost of health care and the limited options that consumers have in the marketplace,” Davis said. “I have really yet to hear the governor or anybody in the Republican Party articulate what the problem with a health insurance exchange is. Until they do that, we’re not having much of a meaningful dialogue here.”

Colorado wildfire destroys 346 homes, worst in state’s history By P. Solomon Banda and Thomas Peipert Associated Press

COLORADO SPRINGS, COLO. — A raging Colorado wildfire that forced tens of thousands to flee destroyed an estimated 346 homes this week, making it the most destructive fire in the state’s history, officials said Thursday. From above, the destruction becomes painfully clear: Rows and rows of houses were reduced to smoldering ashes even as some homes just feet away survived largely intact. On one street, all but three houses had burned to their foundations, said Ryan Schneider, whose home is still standing in a neighborhood where 51 others were destroyed. “I was real happy at first. My wife was happy,” he said. “The emotion of seeing the other homes, though, was instant sadness.” The aerial photos showing the scope of one of the worst fires to hit the American West in decades did little to help ease the concerns of many residents who still did not know the fate of homes. Amid the devastation in the foothills of Colorado Springs, there were hopeful signs. Flames advancing on the U.S. Air Force Academy were stopped and cooler conditions could help slow the fire. The fire was 15 percent contained Thursday night. The cost of fighting the

THIS AERIAL PHOTO SHOWS BURNED HOMES Wednesday in the Mountain Shadows residential area of Colorado Springs, Colo., that were destroyed by the Waldo Canyon wildfire. More than 30,000 people have been displaced by the fire, which destroyed an estimated 346 homes this week, making it the most destructive fire in the state’s history, officials said Thursday blaze had already reached $3.2 million. Colorado Springs Mayor Steve Bach said the 346 estimate could change. A fire in northern Colorado, which is still burning, destroyed 257 homes and until Thursday was the most destructive in state history. For now, Bach said, the news of the destruction would make it very difficult for the city about 60 miles south of Denver. “This is going to be a tough evening, but we’re going to get through it,” Bach said. “This community is going to surround them with love and encouragement ... We will move forward as a community.” More than 30,000 people frantically packed up belongings Tuesday night as the flames swept

through their neighborhoods. While there’s no indication yet the blaze claimed any lives, fire officials said they would search each home looking for possible remains. Community officials were planning to begin the process of notifying residents Thursday that their homes were destroyed. For many residents, the official notification was a formality. Colorado Springs, the state’s second-largest city, is home to the U.S. Olympic Training Center, NORAD and the Air Force Space Command, which operates military satellites. They were not threatened. President Barack Obama was to tour firestricken areas today.

House holds A.G. in contempt By Larry Margasak Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Attorney General Eric Holder on Thursday became the first Cabinet member held in contempt of Congress, a rebuke pushed by Republicans seeking to unearth the facts behind a bungled gun-tracking operation and dismissed by most Democrats as a political stunt. The vote was 255-67, with more than 100 Democrats boycotting. African-American lawmakers led the walkout as members filed up the aisle and out of the chamber to protest the action against Holder, who is the nation’s first black attorney general. Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi of California joined the boycott, saying Republicans had

gone “over the edge” in their partisanship. S e v e n t e e n Democrats voted with R e p u b l i - Holder cans in favor of the contempt vote, while two Republicans — Reps. Scott Rigell of Virginia and Steven LaTourette of Ohio — joined other Democrats in voting against it. The National Rifle Association pressed hard for the contempt resolution, leaning on members of both parties who want to stay in the NRA’s good graces. Andrew Arulanandam, an NRA spokesman, said all 17 Democrats who voted for criminal contempt had previously received

an “A’’ grade from the organization. Holder said afterward that the vote was merely a politically motivated act in an election year “Today’s vote may make for good political theater in the minds of some, but it is — at base — both a crass effort and a grave disservice to the American people. They expect — and they deserve — far better,” Holder said in New Orleans. The attorney general said the House vote would result in an unnecessary court fight. Republicans “were not interested in bringing an end to this dispute or even obtaining the information they say they wanted,” he said. “Ultimately, their goal was the vote that — with the help of special interests — they now have engineered.”

News Corp. approves plan to split company LOS ANGELES — Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp. said Thursday that its board has approved a plan to split into two companies, one containing struggling newspaper and book publishing businesses and the other comprising faster-growing entertainment operations. Murdoch will serve as chairman of both new companies and CEO of the entertainment company. The Murdoch family, which controls nearly 40 percent of the voting shares in News Corp., is expected to maintain control of both companies. News Corp.’s board unanimously approved the split in principle. It will take a more formal look at the plan’s details in coming months. The separation is also subject to regulatory approval and

is expected to take about a year. The split of News Corp. is a symbolic turning point for Murdoch, the company’s 81-year-old CEO. Through the years, Murdoch maintained a fondness for newspapers even as he purchased entertainment companies and built a media conglomerate with a market value of $53 billion. In hearings last summer before U.K. lawmakers, he conceded that he regularly called newspaper editors under his employ with the greeting: “What’s doing?” Investors have already applauded the change. Since news of the split broke early Tuesday, News Corp. shares are up 9 percent. They slipped 32 cents, or 1.4 percent, to $21.99 on Thursday. @ljwmarketplace (Follow us for the latest special promotions from your favorite local businesses.)

Registration kinks Douglas County residents have been able to avoid many of the vehicle registration delays that have occurred in other Kansas counties.


eople registering vehicles in Douglas County are facing far fewer problems and delays than people in some other parts of the state, including our neighbors to the east and west: Johnson and Shawnee counties. The Shawnee County Treasurer’s Office closed its motor vehicle divisions Tuesday so it could try to catch up on a three-week backlog that has resulted from the state Department of Motor Vehicles’ switch to a new computer software system. According to news reports, waits at the Shawnee office continue to be up to eight hours and offices in both Shawnee and Johnson counties continue to close around noon to try to keep up. By contrast, customers at the Douglas County Treasurer’s Office are experiencing relatively short waits to renew tags and register vehicles. Treasurer Paula Gilchrist said Wednesday that the office continues to experience a few problems, especially with internal reporting procedures, but is able to keep up pretty well with its online and mail renewals, as well as with customers who come to the office. Gilchrist said Douglas County’s lower volume of business probably helped it avoid some of the problems in Johnson and Shawnee counties, but she also said her staff was working at full speed and logging significant overtime to keep up with the changes. Whatever the reason, Douglas County residents should be grateful for the service they are receiving as the state works through this troublesome computer issue.

Greece hasn’t hit bottom yet KIFISIA, GREECE — This upscale suburb of Athens offers a snapshot of a country sliding toward bankruptcy. It’s an ugly picture, as expectations of prosperity and stability vanish, and fear begins to take over. The trendy shops in the town center looked empty during a visit this week; many stylish restaurants were said to be closed or open only on weekends; banks here, as everywhere in Greece, have been depleted over the past month by a riptide of withdrawals. I’m here visiting Yannos Papantoniou, an old friend from graduate school who served as Greece’s minister of economy and finance from 1994 to 2001. Those were the years when everything seemed to be going Greece’s way. The deficit fell sharply, inflation declined, and real incomes and investment increased. Greece was struggling (maybe too hard) to make the numbers for inclusion in the European common currency. Next came the euro in 2002, the 2004 Olympic celebration — and then eventual disaster as Greece had to pay its debts. Greece is a morality play in the usual telling of the European economic crisis: It’s seen as a country that elbowed its way into the eurozone and treated the new currency as a German-backed credit card. After living so far beyond their means, the Greeks are getting what they deserve, it’s

Even the off-books ‘black economy’ is in trouble. With so little work, the illegal immigrants who once rushed to Greece are going home.” argued. Even those who scold Germany’s Chancellor Angela Merkel for recommending austerity therapy have little sympathy for the Greeks. The country seems almost like a debtor’s prison, with angry creditors jeering at its demise. This day of reckoning for Greece may be necessary, in economic terms. But it doesn’t take account of the social cost of the unraveling here and in other distressed European nations. The norms of middle-class life that people here took for granted are beginning to come unstuck. I gathered some loose anecdotal examples of what the recent upheaval feels like in Kifisia and, presumably, a hundred other places like it. Burglary is said to be on the rise, so many residents are

adding new security to their homes. Some have purchased guns to protect their property — quite unusual in this cosmopolitan suburb. Local firms are shrinking amid the double-digit economic downturn. Construction companies are concentrating on overseas jobs and laying off domestic workers. The tourist industry has suffered this summer as vacationers canceled plans because of fears of disruption and unrest if Greece abandoned the euro. It’s a classic Keynesian downturn, says Papantoniou. “Failure breeds more failure.” With less money to spend, many Greeks are delaying paying their bills or simply defaulting. And because everyone is angry with the government, Greece’s already egregious problem of tax evasion is getting worse. At a local doctor’s office, it’s said that an embarrassed physician’s assistant tells patients there is a dual system: If the patient wants a receipt, the fee is 150 euros; if it’s a cash transaction without documentation, the visit will cost just 100 euros. Even the off-books “black economy” is in trouble. With so little work, the illegal immigrants who once rushed to Greece are going home. The traffic is all outward bound, including money. According to Papantoniou, bank withdrawals were running an estimated 500 million euros a day in late May and early


From the Lawrence Daily Journal-World for June 29, 1912: YEARS “Some one stole AGO a quantity of copIN 1912 per wire from the rear of the Home Telephone building some time yesterday. The theft was reported to the police and shortly afterward the stolen property was located by Officer Daily. The suspected thief could not be located at that time but later in the evening he was found by Officer Smith and placed under arrest.”

Hot competition

t sort of goes without saying that participants in the annual Tour of Lawrence bicycling event will be getting a warm welcome this weekend. High temperatures hovering around 100 degrees will provide some challenges for both cyclists and spectators, but it doesn’t lessen the community’s enthusiasm for what has become a popular annual event. About 600 cyclists are expected in Lawrence today through Sunday to participate in a full schedule of race events downtown and on the Kansas University campus, including street sprints, a circuit race and a criterium race in downtown. A beer garden with live music on Eighth Street between Massachusetts and New Hampshire should be a popular spot this evening, and children’s activities will be set up near Ninth and Massachusetts streets on Sunday. The Tour of Lawrence has become a true community event, and is one of several efforts to promote the city as a hub for athletic competition. A number of local businesses have stepped up to help sponsor various events, and all proceeds will benefit the Heartland Community Health Center. It may be hot enough to melt a few tires this weekend, but we hope both racers and spectators have a safe and fun outing at the Tour of Lawrence.

June, rising to 1 billion a day immediately before the June 17 parliamentary election. The pro-euro party won, but this hasn’t done much to restore confidence that Greece can avoid default. What went wrong? Papantoniou offered this diagnosis in a recent economics paper: “Selfish interest prevailed. Business groups attempted to capture specific markets. Public-sector trade unions fought for preserving privileges. Tax discipline was further weakened. The welfare state was transformed into a system of endemic waste.” As the economy went haywire, support for the two major political parties collapsed. Eerily, when I hear people describe the downward spiral, it reminds me of descriptions of Germany at the end of the Weimar Republic, on the eve of the Nazi rise to power. The European parties that seem to be benefiting most from the current turmoil are those on the extreme right and left. That’s not a prediction, mind you, just the observation of a worried traveler who likes Greece and wants to see it get healthy again, but can’t yet see a cure. This patient is going to get sicker for a while longer, and it’s hard to know whether the acute stage of the crisis that precedes recovery will be economic, or political, or both.

Mexico may return to authoritarian party MEXICO CITY — With virtually all polls showing that soap opera star-looking candidate Enrique Peña Nieto, 45, is likely to win the July 1 elections, the big question is whether his victory would mean a return to Mexico’s corruption-ridden, authoritarian ways of the past. Although times have changed, that may very well happen. Peña Nieto’s candidacy for the Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI) — the party that ruled this country for seven decades until it was voted out of office in a 2000 election that was heralded as Latin America’s equivalent to the fall of the Berlin Wall — is leading by about 15 percentage points over its closest rival in most polls. According to the latest Mitofsky poll released last week, Peña Nieto has 44.4 percent of voter support, followed by leftist candidate Andrés Manuel Lopez Obrador with 28.7 percent, and center-right candidate Josefina Vazquez Mota with 24.6 percent. The poll doesn’t count non-responses. Granted, there could be last-minute surprises. A growing everybody-againstPeña Nieto student movement known as “Yo soy 132” has emerged in recent weeks, accusing Mexico’s two major television networks of promoting Peña Nieto’s candidacy. The student protest movement has spread like wildfire in social media, and has helped Lopez Obrador climb in the polls.

Andres Oppenheimer

But while there are 14 million Mexicans under 23 who will be eligible to vote for the first time in a presidential election, and many of them may back Lopez Obrador, most political insiders doubt that the student movement will have any major impact on election day because about 75 percent of Mexico’s youth don’t vote. Lopez Obrador has gone out of his way to distance himself from Chavez, and — despite campaigning on the same vague anti-corruption theme that helped Chavez win his first election — has repeatedly assured Mexicans that he would not lead a revolution that would polarize society, scare away investments, and trigger capital flight. But unlike President Ollanta Humala of Perú, a former antiestablishment leftist candidate who won the 2011 election thanks to the crucial support of Peru’s Nobel Laureate Mario Vargas Llosa, Mexico’s Lopez Obrador doesn’t have a similar public figure to help

him alleviate voters’ anxieties. Lopez Obrador badly needs his Vargas Llosa, but barring big surprises — such as if Mexico’s billionaire Carlos Slim, the richest man on earth, were to give him his seal of approval — he won’t get one in time to win the election. Peña Nieto aides reject the notion that his government would be authoritarian, because much of the presidency’s powers have shifted to the states in recent years, and because they say he is by nature a consensusseeking politician. Peña Nieto says that his top priorities would be to carry out long-delayed health care, labor, tax and energy reforms, including a greater opening of the state-owned Pemex oil monopoly to the private sector, as well as to reduce the drug-related violence that has left about 50,000 dead over the past five years. He says that he would double the size of Mexico’s Federal Police’s elite units and — without abandoning the war on drugs — focus on homicides, kidnappings and human trafficking. Peña Nieto’s aides hope that, if wins by a landslide, his job would be made much easier because he would be the first Mexican president in more than a decade to enjoy a majority in Congress. But critics point out that a PRI government would not pass any significant reforms, because it would not risk its alliances with the country’s

biggest and best-organized labor unions. What’s worst, old habits never die, and that PRI would not be able to shed its penchant for corruption, critics say. For nearly a century, the PRI has been the champion of “crony capitalism” — its sweet deals with friendly business barons were the source of most of today’s biggest Mexican fortunes — vote-buying, electoral fraud, and a combination of bribery and intimidation schemes to control the media, they say. My opinion: While the election will be much closer than the polls suggest, Peña Nieto is likely to win. His PRI party is the best organized, he has poured many times more money than his rivals into television ads, and many Mexicans seem willing to live with tolerable levels of corruption in exchange for less violence and the promise of greater prosperity. It’s a dangerous bargain, because in the long run corruption breeds instability and paves the way for messianic leaders. But elections are not about the long run. A Peña Nieto victory would probably not turn Mexico into the “perfect dictatorship” that it was during much of the 20th century, but it could turn it into a more imperfect democracy than it has been over the past decade. — Andres Oppenheimer is a Latin America correspondent for the Miami Herald.

To stick, Taylor must defend Wayne Simien, Julian Wright, Brandon Rush, Darrell Arthur, Xavier Henry, Cole Aldrich, Marcus and Markieff Morris, and Thomas Robinson. Two centers, five power forwards and two small forwards out of Kansas University have been chosen in the first round of the NBA draft since the last guard, Kirk Hinrich in 2003, earned the honor. Mario Chalmers didn’t go until the second round, 34th overall, with the Miami Heat in 2008, Sherron Collins not at all in 2010. NBA teams don’t worry as much about finding guards to fill out their rosters, so it should not have startled anyone that blurry quick Tyshawn Taylor lasted until the 41st pick by the Brooklyn Nets on Thursday night. Taylor plays with passion, has the length and quickness to defend both guard positions and blow by defenders, but as a prospect, he doesn’t bring as much as Chalmers did. He’s not as complete a player, doesn’t have as reliable a jumper and isn’t as creative a passer. To stick in the NBA and play in front of Brooklyn crowds that will include family members and high school friends and opponents, Taylor will need to embrace the role of becoming a defensive pest in the NBA the way Brady Morningstar did as his teammate in college. He’ll need to be the guy who, when his coach scans the bench in search of a guy to give an opposing point guard or shooting guard a different look, settles on him. Taylor needs to become the defender who slows down guys that on paper shouldn’t have any trouble scoring on him, the way Morningstar consistently did as a big-time Big 12 defender. “I think so,” Taylor said of defending both guard spots being his meal ticket. “I think that’s what’s going to get me my minutes early on, going out there and defending.” Taylor didn’t hesitate when asked which NBA player he looks forward to defending more than any other. “Rondo,” he said of the Boston Celtics’ point guard, first name Rajon. “I want to play against Rondo because I love his game and think he’s the best point guard in the league. I’m competitive and I look forward to playing against the best.” If watching Meyers Leonard, a 7-foot-1 project from Illinois, go to Portland with the 11th pick might have given KU center Jeff Withey reason to pause and contemplate his decision to come back for his senior year, watching Taylor tumble into the second round should have confirmed to Elijah Johnson that he made the right call. Johnson brings more savvy to the court than Taylor, has a thicker build, potentially a better jump shot and is a more natural point guard, but he needed another season to prove he has the game to break KU’s first-round guard drought. Withey, too, could improve his stock by adding muscle and range on his jumper. It’s possible KU could have multiple first-round picks for what would be the fourth time in six years in 2013.

FORMER KANSAS UNIVERSITY FORWARD THOMAS ROBINSON POSES with NBA commissioner David Stern after the Sacramento Kings selected Robinson with the fifth overall pick in the 2012 NBA draft on Thursday in Newark, N.J.

Robinson drafted fifth by Sacramento By Matt Tait

NEWARK, N.J. — Even though his name was called a couple of spots lower than he expected, the dip from No. 2 to No. 5 in Thursday’s NBA draft at the Prudential Center did nothing to spoil the moment for former Kansas University forward Thomas Robinson. Moments after hearing the Sacramento Kings make him their choice in the first round of this year’s draft, the former KU All-American turned to his 9-year-old sister Jayla and paused. Words were not needed for the exchange between them. And words were not used. “She just hugged me,” Robinson said. “And it was the best hug in the world.” From that moment on, Robinson fought off the tears that he knew would come. At times, he stopped and let his emotions flow. Not even that

I was just drafted into the NBA.” Joining the Kings caught Robinson by surprise. Throughout the week, he believed he would go a couple of picks higher — perhaps to Charlotte at No. 2 or his hometown Washington Wizards at No. 3 — and also had no idea he was even on Sacramento’s radar. “I really didn’t know where I was going to end up,” Robinson said. “I didn’t work out for Sacramento at all. I probably talked to them once. But I’m here, so I’m meant to be here.” As for the fit, Robinson said he liked the landing spot Matt Tait/Journal-World Photo because it would give him a THOMAS ROBINSON HUGS 9-YEAR- chance to play next to Kings OLD SISTER JAYLA before the start center DeMarcus Cousins, of the NBA draft on Thursday in who, much like Jeff Withey at Newark, N.J.

That should free up Robinson “I made it,” said Robinson, to do at least some of what he exhaling between sentences. did with the Jayhawks. “I mean, I made it through Please see ROBINSON, page 3B what everybody threw at me.

Tyshawn Taylor had heard all sorts of things from people once his name wasn’t called in the first round of Thursday’s NBA draft. So it came as a relief when he was finally taken with the 41st pick by the Portland Trail Blazers, who traded his rights to the Brooklyn Nets. “I was just staying ready, being alert, and just being happy, looking forward to the opportunity,” Taylor said. “I knew that any team that was going to take me was go- Taylor ing to want to play me right away.” Taylor was sitting on steps inside the Room 84 nightclub in Hoboken, N.J., shaking his head in disgust at the previous selection when he learned that he had been picked at No. 41. An report earlier in the day had even indicated that the Chicago Bulls were likely to take him with pick No. 29. “It’s weird, because I thought to myself at the beginning of the draft that I probably would get drafted by a team that I didn’t work out for. And that’s exactly the case with Brooklyn,” Taylor said. “I met with them at Chicago. I sat down and spoke to their GM (Billy King), but of course, I don’t think they figured I would be there when they picked. So, the fact that they picked me is great.” The selection means that Taylor will be playing about 10 miles from his hometown of Hoboken. “It’s not that far,” Taylor said. “It’s over one of those bridges over there.” KU coach Bill Self was asked what advice he’d give to Taylor, who started all four years as a Jayhawk. “Be who he is, and don’t forget who he is. And don’t get caught up in thinking he’s done anything, because he hasn’t yet,” Self said. “And just to work. ... His athletic ability and his talent will win out over time, because all he has to do is just be who he is and just do what he knows he can do. Please see TAYLOR, page 3B

KENTUCKY HEAD COACH JOHN CALIPARI, CENTER, STANDS with former players Anthony Davis, left, and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, right, before the NBA draft on Thursday in Newark, N.J. Davis was selected the No. 1 overall pick by the New Orleans Hornets, and Kidd-Gilchrist was selected No. 2 by the Charlotte Bobcats.

NEWARK, N.J. — Best in the country and No. 1 and 2 in the NBA draft. The celebration goes on for Kentucky’s kids. The Wildcats became the first school to have the top two picks and tied a record with six players taken overall Thursday night. After the New Orleans Hornets made the long-expected selection of forward Anthony Davis with the first pick, Charlotte followed by taking fellow freshman Michael Kidd-Gilchrist. “It’s crazy,” Davis said. “Michael is a great player. We have two down and four more to go. Hopefully, all of them will go in the first round.”

They didn’t, the only disappointment for the Wildcats. They settled for four in the first round and a tie with North Carolina, which won the race to four picks — all in the top 17 selections. Harrison Barnes (No. 7, Golden State), Kendall Marshall (No. 13, Phoenix), John Henson (No. 14, Milwaukee) and Tyler Zeller (No. 17, Dallas) all went between KiddGilchrist and the next Kentucky player, Terrence Jones at No. 18 to Houston. Zeller’s rights were later traded to Cleveland for a package that included No. 24 pick Jared Cunningham of Oregon State. Otherwise, it was the Wildcats’ night, starting with Please see DRAFT, page 3B

NFL tweaks late starting times NEW YORK (AP) — Tim Tebow was leading the Broncos on yet another improbable last-minute comeback, and fans in New York, Dallas and other footballmad markets didn’t get to see the end. The NFL announced a scheduling change Thursday aimed at preventing such moments. The league is shifting the start time of the second game of its Sunday TV doubleheaders by 10 minutes to ensure fewer fans

miss any of the action on the field. The late afternoon matchups on CBS and Fox will kick off at 3:25 p.m. CT instead of 3:15. Late games not on that week’s doubleheader network will still start at 3:05. Because of the networks’ contractual obligations, fans in the past would sometimes miss the end of the early telecast or the beginning of the late one if the noon game ran long. The broadcasters must switch to the start

of the second game in the home teams’ cities even if the day’s first televised contest is still going on. For fans in other markets, that overlap means they don’t get to see the opening of the late game. During the 2009-11 seasons, 44 games lasted long enough to require part of the audience to be switched. Under the 3:25 kickoff, that number would have been reduced to 15. On Dec. 4, Denver beat the

Minnesota Vikings on a field goal as time expired on Fox, the Broncos’ fifth straight win as Tebow-mania swept the country. The game ended at 3:19 p.m. CT, so hometown fans of the Packers, Giants, Cowboys, Cardinals, Rams and 49ers — whose teams played in the 3:15 game — missed the final seconds. NBC said it would not change the way it produces its Sunday night pregame show, which starts at 6 p.m.

What’s wrong with the new college football playoff plan? Nothing. In fact, the four-team tournament is an eruption of reason, and a rare victory for patience, common sense and change. As Winston Churchill said, Americans can be counted upon to do the right thing after they’ve tried everything else. We just never dreamed he was talking about university presidents and conference commissioners. The only real problem, in a world that has lost its attention span tweet-by-tweet, is that we must actually wait for it. That means two years of celebrating the death of the wicked witch known as the BCS. But, by the time we get to New Year’s Eve 2014 and the first final Four — an event that will stir up a $6 billion wagering tsunami, according to Las Vegas sources — we must realize that the BCS was the clunky vehicle that got us from there to here. This is a society of increments. Most ideas are derided at first, then seep into our lives, intravenously. Cigarette commercials would never leave the airwaves, we never would squirm our way into shoulder harnesses while driving, and nobody would make a custom out of gathering up old newspapers and milk cartons and using a separate recycling bin. And smog would be an enduring staple of Los Angeles life. All of those things became routine, so gradually. So it is with football’s playoff, a preposterous impossibility 30 years ago that was only kept alive by Joe Paterno and daydreaming columnists. The BCS, in all its clumsiness, made it happen. What the BCS gave us was a national championship game, a destination beyond the disjointed bowls and wire-service polls that only identified a clear No. 1 team by accident. Before that we had odious split championships: Colorado and Georgia Tech, Washington and Miami. It was like keeping the AFC and NFC champions from playing a Super Bowl. Yet college football’s establishment pretended it was fine and, in fact, was necessary to hold off various corrupting forces. The playoff would mean too many games! The playoff would be too much of an academic burden for our studentathletes! The playoff would — horrors — devalue our beloved bowl system! And who really cares who’s No. 1 anyway! Well, thanks to the BCS and conference title games, we have several teams that play 14 times. The extra games are generally played between semesters, when there is no class, uh, school. The bowl system already has devolved into a programming factory for ESPN, sometimes to comical effect. Last year, UCLA played Illinois in San Francisco after each school had fired its coach. UCLA lost and finished its season 6-8.

RAFAEL NADAL, LEFT, CONGRATULATES LUKAS ROSOL after Rosol’s second-round victory Thursday at Wimbledon, England.

Rosol sends Nadal home early at Wimbledon WIMBLEDON, ENGLAND — First Rafael Nadal took a tumble into the net. Then he began complaining to the umpire. Then he bumped his opponent, Lukas Rosol, during a changeover. Rosol thought the contact was intentional. “I was surprised he could do it on the Centre Court at Wimbledon,� Rosol said. But the obscure Czech was not to be rattled. Nadal made his earliest Grand Slam exit since 2005, losing in the second round Thursday, 6-7 (9), 6-4, 6-4, 2-6, 6-4. “In the fifth set he played more than unbelievable,� Nadal said. “Before, first three sets, I didn’t play well.� Nadal’s demeanor grew glum as the match progressed, and in the third set, he bumped into Rosol as they crossed to reach their chairs for a break. “He wanted to take my concentration,� Rosol said. “That’s OK. I knew he would try something, but I was concentrating.� The 26-year-old Rosol remained focused to the finish, earning the biggest win of his career while playing in Wimbledon’s main draw for the first time. He lost each of the past five years in the first round of qualifying. At No. 100, Rosol is the lowest-ranked player to beat Nadal in a Grand Slam tournament. It was a good day for Americans — Serena Williams, Andy Roddick, Mardy Fish and 126th-ranked Brian Baker advanced, as did No. 28-seeded Christina McHale and Varvara Lepchenko. Maria Sharapova’s old serving problems resurfaced, costing her the second set before she recovered to beat dangerous Tsvetana Pironkova, 7-6 (3), 6-7 (3), 6-0.

Ex-Irish aide pleads guilty SOUTH BEND, IND. — Former Notre Dame assistant football coach Corwin Brown, who is accused of striking his wife and holding her hostage, has pleaded guilty but mentally ill to confinement and domestic battery charges. Prosecutors agreed to drop a more serious confinement charge. St. Joseph County Judge Jane Woodward Miller said Thursday she will decide Aug. 21 whether to accept the deal, which recommends a four-year prison sentence.


Phelps wins 200 butterfly OMAHA, NEB. — Michael Phelps stayed on course to swim eight events at the London Olympics with a dominating win in the 200-meter butterfly at the U.S. swimming trials Thursday night. He trailed Davis Tarwater at the first and second turns, but there was never any doubt that Phelps would pull ahead in his signature stroke. He surged ahead on the third leg and was a body-length ahead of the field when he touched in 1 minute, 53.65 seconds. The real race was for second place — and a spot on the Olympic team. Tyler Clary, who lost out to Phelps in the 400 individual medley, rallied from behind for a time of 1:55.12, edging Bouiller’s time of 1:55.79.


Van Pelt tops at AT&T

U.S. blanks Puerto Rico

BETHESDA, MD. — Bo Van Pelt holed out from the fairway for eagle and kept bogeys off his card for a 4-under 67. It gave him a one-shot lead Thursday in the AT&T National, which felt more like a U.S. Open than Congressional did last year. Only seven players managed to post scores in the 60s, and the average score was about 73.5. Tiger Woods didn’t play the U.S. Open last year. Even so, the course was far stronger than when he last won here in 2009. Woods was never under par in the opening round and had to settle for a 72. Former Kansas University golfer Gary Woodland opened with a 72.

OKLAHOMA CITY — Chelsea Thomas struck out six in 3 2/3 innings, Christie Orgeron had a pair of doubles and two RBIs, and the United States beat Puerto Rico, 8-0, in five innings on Thursday on the first day of the World Cup of Softball.

Vaughan leads Senior Players PITTSBURGH — Bruce Vaughan shot a 6-under 64 on Thursday to take a one-stroke lead over Fred Funk in the Senior Players Championship, the third of five Champions Tour majors. The 55-year-old Vaughan matched the lowest round of his career and tied the first-round


Buescher wins truck race SPARTA, KY. — James Buescher held the lead for most of the way in temperatures approaching 100 degrees, fending off challengers to win the NASCAR Truck Series race Thursday night at Kentucky Speedway. Buescher, who started the night fourth in the series driver standings, took the lead for the first time just 27 laps into the 150-circuit race and dominated the rest of the way. Pole-sitter Matt Crafton led before Buescher took over and didn’t let go. Sprint Cup driver Brad Keselowski started 17th but climbed back to finish second. Ty Dillon was third.

Kings could use T-Rob’s help SACRAMENTO, CALIF. (AP) — Kansas University’s Thomas Robinson was considered perhaps the most NBA-ready player in the draft and the Sacramento Kings need plenty of immediate help after missing the playoffs for a sixth straight season. While Anthony Davis was the expected No. 1 pick, Robinson was in the running to go as high as second, but the Kings were fortunate he fell to their spot at the fifth pick. “It kind of went based on team needs,” Robinson said. “The teams that

skipped me didn’t need me at that position. The Kings took a chance on me and took me at five. I’m going to make the best of it.” The Kings are coming off another disappointing season, finishing the shortened campaign 2244 to miss the postseason once again. Coach Paul Westphal was fired after just seven games and replaced by Keith Smart, who will be back for his first full season next year. With a run of high draft picks, the Kings have some pieces already in

place, most notably center DeMarcus Cousins, who averaged 18.1 points and 11 rebounds per game in his second season. Tyreke Evans, the 2010 Rookie of the Year, had career lows with 16.5 points, 4.6 rebounds and 4.5 assists per game, and ended the season as a small forward after playing point guard for his first two seasons. Isaiah Thomas, the final pick of last year’s draft, took over the starting point guard role and averaged 11.5 points per game. He was much more effec-

tive than first-round pick Jimmer Fredette, who averaged 7.6 points per game and shot 39 percent from the field. Robinson will provide a big boost defensively to the team that allowed the most points per game in the NBA last season. “They’re a talented team with Tyreke at the guard spot and DeMarcus down low,” Robinson said. “I’ll try to build them up with rebounding and energy.” Sacramento later sold its second-round pick to Indiana.


There was more than the on-the-court aspect of Robinson’s fit in Sacramento that made his night, though. The Kings and Jayla share a favorite color. “She likes purple,” said Robinson, his signature smile outshining the tracks of his tears. “And now I love it.” As for Jayla, she now has a new team to root for and was not afraid to show it. With a brand new Kings hat on top of her freshly done hair, the only little girl in the green room made her allegiances known. “I love the Sacramento Kings,” she said. Asked for her feelings about the huge hug she shared with her brother, Jayla approved of that, too. “It was goooooood,” she said with an endless smile. In being selected fifth, Robinson joined Wayne Hightower (also fifth, in 1961) as the fourthhighest KU draft pick of all-time. Danny Manning was taken No. 1 overall by the Los Angeles Clippers in 1988. A decade later, Raef LaFrentz went third to Denver. And, in 2002, Memphis took Drew Gooden at No. 4. The Washington, D.C. native, became the 10th Jayhawk drafted in the lottery since 2000, which leads the nation. “To think where he was when he came, and all the


a hug between Davis and Kidd-Gilchrist after the first selection. “My arm was shaking and my hands were sweaty. Got up and hugged Michael, my best friend, wanted to hug him for a minute,” Davis said. “When my name got called, wanted to make sure he stayed close.” He did — following Davis as the next player to climb onto the stage and shake Commissioner David Stern’s hand. Kentucky got its fourth first-round pick at No. 29 with Marquis Teague, another freshman, who is headed to Chicago as a possible replacement for the injured Derrick Rose. Doron Lamb went 42nd to Milwaukee and Darius Miller was 46th to New Orleans. Davis will begin his pro career in the same city where he ended it with a national title. College basketball’s player of the year as a freshman was the Most Outstanding Player of the Final Four despite shooting just 1 for 10 from the field in the championship game, grabbing 16 rebounds and blocking six shots in the victory over Kansas. Davis slipped on a blue and purple Hornets hat above a conservative gray suit that took no attention away from basketball’s most famous eyebrow. Davis even attempted to capitalize on the attention his unibrow gets, trademarking “Fear The Brow”

“Don’t try to be great or do anything exceptional. Just go be who you are. Because who he is is plenty good enough to make that team.” Taylor called the opportunity to go to the Nets “a blessing.” “I feel like I have the opportunity anyway because of what I can bring for a team. I can defend,” Taylor said. “Being a fouryear player at a university like Kansas, I think, gives me a step up in competition of coming into the league ready — ready to play right now.” Brooklyn general manager King said the Nets had targeted Taylor for a while before buying the pick from Portland. “We had him on our board pretty high,” King said. “We were trying to get a young point guard that we could groom. We liked his pedigree and his ability to play in big games. Once we started to slide, we made the move to get him. We liked his overall play as a point guard and we think his best basketball is ahead of him. We like his decision making and his size. He knows what it takes to be successful. “He’s played with a lot of talented players in the past and that makes you a better player.” Self admitted to being proud when both Taylor and Thomas Robinson were drafted Thursday

We liked his overall play as a point guard and we think his best basketball is ahead of him. We like his decision making and his size. He knows what it takes to be successful.” — Brooklyn Nets general manager Billy King on newly drafted point guard Tyshawn Taylor because of both players’ circumstances. Both, he said, had persevered through rough times. “Tyshawn goes from being the most criticized guy that I’ve coached — period — to now, ‘How in the world can we play without him?’ and every fan feels the same way,” Self said. “Thomas basically having no one in his life and having to be a man on his own and that kind of stuff to maturing and being an unbelievable ambassador for our university. It’s really cool how both of them handled their situations.” Self said both players ended up in good locations. “I know what drives them both: It drives them nuts to think that somebody thinks that somebody’s better than them,” Self said. “So I don’t think the draft could have gone much better for either one of them from a script standpoint.”

BOSTON CELTICS HEAD COACH DOC RIVERS, LEFT, GREETS former Kansas University forward Thomas Robinson, who was selected by the Sacramento Kings with the fifth overall pick in the NBA draft on Thursday in Newark, N.J. things he’s been through, and to see that he is going to be able to provide for his family in ways he could only dream of going into this season is remarkable,” KU coach Bill Self said. “I’m so happy for him, and I’m happy for Jayla.” Later in the draft, former KU guard Tyshawn Taylor was picked 41st by the Brooklyn Nets, by way of the Portland Trail Blazers, giving the Jayhawks 14 total selections under Self and seven total draft picks in the past three years. Two of those sev-

en, twins Markieff (13th in 2011) and Marcus Morris (14th in 2011), were in the Prudential Center stands supporting their former teammate on Thursday night. “I’m basically just real happy for him,” Markieff said of Robinson. “He was texting me the whole time telling me he was nervous and I just kept telling him to stay calm and trust that he would be picked where he was supposed to be picked.” If that didn’t work, the Morris twins had a little

extra help from a woman very familiar with the arena’s green room. Angel Morris, who vowed to look after Robinson and Jayla after the passing of Robinson’s mother, Lisa, in early 2011, sat proudly at Robinson’s table, just as she did a year ago with her own sons. “It’s special, man,” Marcus said. “She’s a strong lady, and she’s been that way my whole life. She’s always taken people in and tried to make their lives better. She’s a mother — a great mother.”

Bucs’ Burnett baffles Phillies The Associated Press

Pirates 5, Phillies 4 PHILADELPHIA — A.J. Burnett threw 6 2/3 sharp innings to win his eighth straight start, Casey McGehee hit a three-run homer, and Pittsburgh beat Philadelphia. Pedro Alvarez also went deep for Pittsburgh, which split the four-game set in Philadelphia by winning the last two. The surprising Pirates, seeking their first winning season since 1992, are 40-35 and second in the NL central. Burnett (9-2) allowed three runs and six hits, striking out seven. The winning streak is his longest, and it’s the first time a Pirates pitcher has won eight in a row since Dock Ellis in 1974. Joel Hanrahan tossed a scoreless ninth for his 20th save in 22 tries. He retired Hunter Pence on a shallow fly with the tying run on third to end it. Eric Kratz and Pence hit homers for the Phillies. The Pirates jumped on Kyle Kendrick (2-8) for five runs before he recorded a second out in the first.

Rockies 11, Nationals 10, 11 innings DENVER — Marco Scutaro’s RBI single in the 11th inning gave Colorado a victory over Washington after the Rockies squandered a seven-run lead. Jonathan Herrera doubled with one out off Craig Stammen (3-1). After pinch-hitter Jason Giambi walked, Dexter Fowler hit a fly ball to deep center that was caught by Bryce Harper. Herrera tagged up and took third on the play with pinch-runner Christian Friedrich advancing

to second. Scutaro, who was 13 for 68 with runners in scoring position, then completed a seven-pitch at-bat with a single to right-center. Washington

Diamondbacks 3, Braves 2 ATLANTA — Chris Young hit a tiebreaking homer against Atlanta closer Craig Kimbrel in the ninth inning, lifting Arizona over the Braves. Jason Kubel had a tworun double in the sixth to tie the score for the Diamondbacks. Trevor Bauer, the No. 3 overall draft pick in 2011, did not receive a decision in his major-league debut for Arizona after he was called up from Triple-A Reno earlier in the day.

Dear Annie: I have been with “Jim” for eight years. We are in our 40s and have been through a lot together. When I moved in with him three years ago, two of his kids lived with their mother, and the older boy was in prison. I was supportive of Jim’s visits to “Lloyd” and also wrote letters myself. Lloyd got out of prison 18 months ago and was paroled to our home. He is not supposed to frequent bars, but his drinking has increased, and he constantly violates the terms of his parole. Lloyd refuses to abide by our curfew. Twice he left the refrigerator open and let the food spoil. He has kicked in our front door and broken numerous things, and now items have been disappearing. We’ve given Lloyd chance after chance. We pay all of his bills, including the one for his cellphone service. I’ve told

Annie’s Mailbox

Marcy Sugar and Kathy Mitchell

Jim that Lloyd needs to respect our rules or find somewhere else to live. Jim keeps telling Lloyd to straighten up, but there are never any repercussions, so it never happens. How do I proceed from here? — Lost in Love Dear Lost: Jim thinks he is protecting his son, but unfortunately, he is only reinforcing Lloyd’s irresponsible behavior. The best thing for Lloyd would be to get a job (try the Safer Foundation at and move into his own place. However, you won’t be

UFO chase finds nothing intelligent “Chasing UFOs” (7 p.m., National Geographic) promises to do just that. But it’s so numbing in its repetitive nature and similar to a thousand other programs that by the time I was finished screening it, I was convinced that aliens had indeed arrived and destroyed all signs of intelligent life in the National Geographic organization. There was a time when the words National Geographic stood for something: science, research and a commitment to discovery. For National Geographic to lend its name and logo to something so tawdry, unoriginal and dull deeply saddens me. For the record, “Chasing UFOs” sends a team of photogenic experts to locations known for strange sightings and phenomenon. There is a lot of Mulder-and-Scully-type chitchat about believing versus skepticism. We meet locals who speak in varying degrees of inarticulate wonder. We meet a grizzled “expert” whose revelation is “dramatic” and meaningless. There is shaky footage. We spend a lot of time looking at monotonous nonaction through night-vision goggles. Our hosts shout out vague, bleeped-out obscenities as they wonder, “Did you see/hear/feel THAT?” Again, “Chasing UFOs” is not the worst program ever, nor the stupidest. And if it were part of some “Ghost Hunters” nonsense on Syfy, it would seem perfectly normal. But to associate an organization known for science with a program promoting superstition and popular gullibility is profane. Sure, it’s disappointing to see the History Channel churn out vulgar anti-intellectual programming that has nothing to do with the study of the past. And let’s not even think about how Lifetime has morphed from vague feminism to shows celebrating spunky hookers in massage parlors. But those are mere cable outlets. National Geographic has been around for more than a century. The desecration of its “brand” is corporate vandalism at its thoughtless, shortsighted worst.

Tonight’s other highlights

U.S. Swimming Olympic Trials (7 p.m., NBC). Gymnastics (8 p.m.) follow.

Crises abound on “Whale Wars” (8 p.m., Animal Planet).

Therapy calls for role-play on “Common Law” (9 p.m., USA).

An abandoned New Mexico prison offers bumps in the night on “The Dead Files” (9 p.m., Travel).

able to encourage Lloyd’s independence without Jim’s support, so joint counseling is a good place to start. Also try Al-Anon ( for additional help. Dear Annie: I’m a 62-year-old widow and have no children. In the past three years, five people close to me died, leaving me alone except for two nieces and one nephew, and none of them is speaking to me. When my husband passed, we had no money due to longstanding financial problems. Before my sister died, we were trying to work through her feelings about me. She never liked me and had a great deal of anger toward me. At the time, I was still having financial difficulties and could not attend her funeral or send flowers. My nephew offered to pay for the trip, but I didn’t feel comfortable accepting. I know I should have called, but I


For Friday, June 29: This year, curb “It’s my way or the highway” type of thinking. Move away from it, and you will gain. Understand that no one likes to be controlled. If you are single, do not fall for how someone seems to be. You are likely to attract someone who’s emotionally unavailable. If you are attached, schedule a couple of special weekends away together. The Stars Show the Kind of Day You’ll Have: 5-Dynamic; 4-Positive; 3-Average; 2-So-so; 1-Difficult Aries (March 21-April 19)  Close one-on-one conversations seem inevitable. You’ll get to root out several problems, as long as you do not trigger anyone in the process. Tonight: TGIF. Taurus (April 20-May 20)  You could feel challenged when others are simply presenting a different perspective or opinion. Try not to react, and stay centered. Tonight: Sort through invitations. Gemini (May 21-June 20)  You cannot continue with such a heavy pace, because you are only human. Remember that. Tonight: Try to make it an early night. Cancer (June 21-July 22)  You want to make a difference. Tap into your imagination. Tonight: Head home. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)  If you really want to stay home, do so. You will flourish in this environment. Tonight: Invite friends over. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)  Your inquiries and overtures initially are met with a positive response, yet beneath the surface you could sense a resistance. You want what you want. Tonight: Visit with a loved one.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)  You have a way about you that makes all the difference. Listen to someone’s feedback, even if this person doesn’t come from the same mind-set as you. Tonight: Your treat. Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)  You smile, and someone responds. Your ability to understand others intellectually does not compare to your empathetic abilities. Tonight: It’s your night to howl. Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)  Be aware that you might be more out of sorts than you realize. It is better to say less than to develop foot-in-mouth disease. Tonight: Head home. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)  A friendship means a lot to you, and despite some unanticipated developments, you will have an opportunity to show your caring. Take news with a grain of salt. Tonight: Find your friends. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)  You are full of smiles, as you attempt to see life differently. A boss or higher-up clearly is impressed with your ability to lead and with your diligence. Tonight: A must appearance. Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)  You want to move forward with a particular idea, but you must look at this concept more completely and be honest with yourself as to any problems with it. Tone down the idealism. Tonight: Reach out for someone at a distance.

didn’t know what to say. By the time my mother died, my sister’s kids had pretty much ruled me out. I have written letters to them explaining the problems in our family. I have sent handmade presents to my nephew’s two little girls and mailed cheerful Christmas greetings, all to no avail. No thank-you notes. Nothing. I’m at the point where I’m ready to give up all contact.
