Heat doesn’t squelch Party in the Park

City mulls on-call T bus service

By Chad Lawhorn

By Chansi Long

Carrie Daly and Mike Lawson didn’t let the oppressive heat keep them at home this Fourth of July. With temperatures reaching the triple digits, the couple decided to bring their daughter, Verona, to Watson Park, Seventh and Kentucky streets, for the Lawrence Originals Party in the Park. “It was an effort to get out of the house, for sure, but we wanted to stop by,” Lawson said. Daly is nine and a half months pregnant, but wanted to let Verona, 1, experience the live music and Fourth of July fun. Verona tottered about on the grass as the couple gazed at the thousands of people coursing through the park: there were people slurping snow cones, munching on local food and sitting on blankets as they tried to find refuge in the shade. Kami Wisdom found relief from the heat by plunging into a vat of water over and over again. Wisdom was one of several servers from Johnny’s

Tim Utter can tell you that it takes about an hour to walk from the Santa Fe Industrial Park near the Kansas Turnpike to east Lawrence. He knows because he made the walk several times when he unexpectedly was moved to the third shift by his industrial employer. Utter relies on public transportation to get to and from work, and the city’s fixedroute bus system runs only from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. “You really are at the mercy of getting someone Corliss to give you a ride, or else you just walk,” Utter said. “I walked several times because that is what you do when you need the job.” Soon, though, you may pick up the phone and call for a city bus. City Manager David Corliss’ recommended budget calls for $250,000 to fund a pilot program that would extend the hours of the city’s public transit system to cover the time period from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. Monday through Saturday. City officials still are developing plans for the service, but they’ve said it would operate significantly different than the daytime routes. Robert Nugent, the city’s public transit administrator, said the plan is to operate only two 18-passenger buses to cover the entire city during the nighttime Please see TRANSIT, page 2A

Middle schooler incentivizes good deeds By Adam Strunk

Last school year, a superhero walked the halls of West Middle School. True, she can’t leap buildings in a single bound, and feats of strength are out of the question — she’s 5 feet 2 inches tall and looks all of 90 pounds. But her goal of spreading kindness is worthy of any masked crusader. And she does have a secret identity — that is, until now. Her name is Mary Krieger, a soonto-be-freshman at Free State High School next year. When you see her, she looks like a normal teenager, with blue eyes and a shy smile. What makes Mary heroic is the program she created and funded

in her last semester at West, called Kindness Counts. The program provided awards and $10 gift certificates through Downtown Lawrence Inc. for teachers to hand out to students they saw doing acts of kindness. The idea was simple: give students incentive to do good and they will do it. “I was hoping, if I did this, then when I did see the change kids, would start doing nicer things,” Mary said. “I did get to see that a couple of times and see the smile on the kids’ faces when they got one of the awards.” To fund the program, Mary told her mother, Jackie Millin, she didn’t Richard Gwin/Journal-World Photo want presents on her birthday. She just wanted to put whatever money MARY KRIEGER has taken it upon herself to do good to her mother would have spent on her others. She started a program at West Middle School this spring to give $10 gift certificates to students who were Please see KINDNESS, page 2A caught doing acts of kindness.

Police say soldier’s tale shows dangers of bath salts MANHATTAN (AP) — Riley County police are using an incident this week involving a Fort Riley soldier as a warning to those who might think “bath salts” aren’t dangerous. The Topeka CapitalJournal reported Tuesday that police were called around 8 a.m. Monday by someone claiming a friend was behaving strangely. Department spokesman Lt. Josh Kyle said officers found the 22-year-old active-duty military man in Manhattan exhibiting odd behavior. Police aren’t releasing the exact location or the man’s name. Kyle said the soldier initially responded with slow, slurred speech, as if he were drunk, before becoming excitable and paranoid. Then, the man

started making bizarre religious statements and stopped making sense, he said. “It progressed from there,” Kyle said. The soldier was taken into protective custody and transported to a hospital for treatment. “Bath salts” is a generic term for many kinds of substances, legal and otherwise, that have been in the headlines because of the strange behavior exhibited by people who use them to get high. Kyle said bath salts are especially dangerous because they are chemical concoctions and those who use them have no idea what they are ingesting. “Bath salts are an evergrowing risk and some-

Mary is the youngest of six siblings. Millin also emailed friends and family about the program, and soon, after a $5 donation here and a $10 donation there, they had raised $600. Mary then took the idea and proposed it to her principal. “It was really a neat idea,” said West Principal Myron Melton. “She did a really nice presentation and was also very formal.” Melton said Mary stressed the kindness she saw within the student body and how she wanted to reward such kindness instead of focusing on students’ negative behavior. But the program had a catch — not only was


hours. Instead of the buses running regular routes, they would only be on the streets when riders call to schedule a pickup. The city now uses such a “demand response” system during portions of the daytime hours on Route No. 3, which runs from downtown to Lawrence Memorial Hospital and the industrial area along North Iowa Street. Come Aug. 1, the entire route will operate on the demand-response system all day long. Under the system, riders call a number staffed by transit employees to book a ride on the bus — much like they would call for a taxi but at a fraction of the price. The service charges the standard $1 one-way transit fare. With the nighttime service, Nugent said the city is still trying to determine how far in advance a rider would need to schedule a ride. Nugent said there is some concern that if a ride could be requested with only an hour’s notice, for

— Jackie Millin, mother of Mary Krieger Mary using her own money to fund it, but she didn’t want any recognition for the idea and wished to remain anonymous. The situation surprised her principal. “I said, ‘Are you sure you want to do this?’ and she said, ‘Yes this is what I want to do.’” Mary said she wished to remain anonymous because she didn’t want to ruin the program by having others think it was for attention. So the program began in March, and Melton and Mary kept their secret. It wasn’t always easy. She had to keep quiet when friends won — she even won an award herself — but secrecy is what she wanted. Mary’s wish made it hard to track her down for this story. The Journal-World received a tip from a neighbor that mentioned the program. After a short conversaexample, that the system could become overloaded by college students looking for rides home from drinking establishments. Nugent said Kansas University operates a robust safe-ride program, and the city wants its new service to focus on serving workers who don’t have other options to get to work. “We definitely don’t want somebody on Mass. Street calling at 3 in the morning taking away from somebody else who needs the system to get to work,” said Nugent, who also said workers likely would be able to make a standing appointment if they knew they would need the bus on a regular basis. Morris Harding, a frequent rider of the T, said the focus on serving latenight and early-morning workers was appropriate. “I know there are people out there who pass up jobs, even though they have the experience, because they just don’t have viable transportation,” Harding said. “This is one of those things that could really make a difference in some people’s lives.” Utter said he thinks the new service also could be beneficial, but he’s not

thing to watch out for,” he said. Symptoms of use include blood pressure issues, excitability, paranoia and eventually delusions and hallucinations. Kyle said the police department’s drug unit has seen people distributing “bath salts” around the Manhattan area. Kyle didn’t think the man would face criminal charges, and added that officers’ priority was to get the man medical assistance. He said the Police Department is using the incident to alert others about the dangers of the concoctions and the severe reactions they can cause. “It can very easily create a medical emergency,” Kyle said. tion, Melton agreed to call Mary’s mother, and Millin agreed to talk to her daughter about it. Mary agreed to the article, again with a condition — that it stress she didn’t want the recognition. After a 30-minute conversation with Mary, it’s easy to see that the recognition didn’t matter. She said she had seen bullying going on at the school and had been bullied herself. Her reward was seeing good behavior improve the school. “It’s been a huge morale boost,” Melton said. “We are just so proud of her.” Added Mary, “When I did get to see the change, it was probably the best feeling that I ever had. Because that was one of the things I wanted for my birthday, and I would actually get to see the difference and see the kids with the smiles on their faces. It just put a smile on my face.” She said she hopes the program will continue at West. Mary might not have wanted recognition, but she has earned it from Mom. “I don’t know that you can put that in words to have a daughter that is that amazing,” Millin said. sure it ought to be the first priority for transit improvements in Lawrence. He said he wants the city to improve the efficiency of existing routes, noting he often has to wait for 30 minutes or more on a transfer to get from his east Lawrence home to Checkers grocery store in central Lawrence. But Nugent said the request for extended hours is a frequent one. “People talk about how they want later hours and how they want service on Sundays,” Nugent said. “You basically hear those requests at every public hearing we have.” If approved by city commissioners, the $250,000 would come from a portion of the two sales taxes voters approved for transit operations in 2008. Specifically, the money would come from a 0.05 percent sales tax that is set aside to provide “enhancements” to the city’s public transit service. The tax generated about $645,000 in 2011. City commissioners will discuss the bus proposal and other budget-related items at a 4 p.m. study session Tuesday at City Hall. — City reporter Chad Lawhorn can be reached at 832-6362.

Throwing a strike against cancer Women team up to start bowling fundraiser

By Dawne Leiker

By Karrey Britt

The Hays Daily News

Two Lawrence women have teamed up to organize a bowling event July 21 that will benefit the organizations they are passionate about: Livestrong and Catch a Break. Both organizations help patients and their families in the fight against cancer. Earlier this year, Michelle Derusseau, 48, became a Douglas County leader for The Lance Armstrong Foundation and its Livestrong campaign. As a leader, she helps educate the community about the free resources that the foundation provides and its mission. “Livestrong fights to improve the lives of people affected by cancer, and that’s not just the person who has been diagnosed but it’s everybody affected by that diagnosis,” she said. Derusseau said the foundation provides a navigation center where anyone can call and ask about topics such as clinical trials, finances, employee rights and insurance. The foundation also offers a free 198-page guidebook, planner and journal. She said the foundation helped provided guidance for her family members as they battled cancer. Her aunt was diagnosed with lung cancer in January 2011, and she died six weeks later. This year, her

HAYS — With only rodents and pigeons attending the final performance, the last curtain likely will soon be lowered for the downtown landmark commonly known as the Opera House. Built by Henry Krueger in the 1870s, the history of the Opera House or Krueger Building can differ greatly depending on who’s telling it. “It’s called the Opera House,” said local historian Pete Felten. “But it was never an opera house. “There was another building in town just across the railroad tracks. It was the Star Theater. ... That was the opera house.” Newspaper articles and advertisements from the 1910s and 1920s describe entertainment events at an opera house in Hays. Without addresses included in the articles, Felten surmised that readers decades later likely assumed the building referenced was the structure at 811 Fort St. “Why would they go to the Krueger building, a dry goods store, with an opera, when the opera house was across the street?” Felten asked. “It doesn’t make sense. “It’s one of these myths you can’t change.” The Star Theater, located at 10th and Fort, served as an opera house at the turn of the century

and was renovated into a movie theater in the 1930s. The Krueger Building became commonly known as the Opera House, according to Hays City Commissioner Henry Schwaller IV, because transient performers sometimes put on impromptu performances there. However, he said, the building’s other uses included being a makeshift courthouse after the Ellis County Courthouse burned down. Visually, the building “always surprised” Felten, who said he’s often wondered why Krueger built a three-story stone building in a small town such as Hays. A rather ambitious undertaking, he said the structure was built with limestone from a quarry on what is now Fort Hays State University property. During the building boom of the 1870s, the county courthouse, churches and many other local buildings were constructed of the native limestone. Its north side, facing the railroad tracks, created a Please see OPERA, page 4A

State board urged to seek millions in school funding By John Milburn Associated Press

TOPEKA — Education advocates are urging the State Board of Education to request millions more in state tax dollars to fund public schools in Kansas, arguing that the money is needed to maintain recent achievement gains and a trained workforce. Representatives of the Kansas National Education Association and Kansas Association of School Boards sent letters to the state Department of Education saying the funding request is in keeping with the 10-member state board’s duty to children. Claudette Jones, executive director of the KNEA, which represents teachers statewide, advocated for full funding as called for in state law — which would mean more than $440 million alone in base aid to districts. “Funding for schools must be both adequate and equitable,” Jones wrote in her organization’s letter. “The future of our state and our ability to attract and retain business investment is dependent on a well-educated, well-trained workforce.” Staff presented the 10-member board with a list of budget ideas during its June meeting, including increases in base state aid per student, enhanced support systems and funding for teacher development. Board members haven’t discussed the proposals in public, though a public meeting is scheduled for Tuesday of next week. Last year, the board


fine impression for folks traveling by train. The smooth stones reserved for that side, which bore the Krueger Dry Goods sign, contrasted with the rough stones used for the building’s other three sides. The mortar, which has somehow held together the Krueger building for more than a century, likely was made locally of a lye product consisting of burnt limestone, Felten said. Attractive stones were placed on the outside of the building during the construction process, and debris resulting from cutting the stones was used as filler behind them. “And after years, it just turned into dust,” Felten said. “It would just crumble.” With a lack of maintenance throughout the years, the weathering of the building’s stucco, stone and mortar through freezing, thawing and rain led to cracking and falling of stones. During the last month, the falling stones prompted the city of Hays to move forward with the condemnation process for the building, as city staff became increasingly concerned about public safety for pedestrians and automobiles traveling near Eighth and Fort.

‘The place to go’ In 1909, local businessmen purchased the building for $12,000 to create the Essex House, a place for meals and gatherings. “My mother was a teenager,” Felten said. “And she always wanted to go to the Essex Club. “It was the place to go.” Felten’s grandfather, Harry, and Schwaller’s great-grandfather, Henry, both were members of the Essex Club. Thereafter the building sold to the Wolf and Rupp families in the early 1920s, and was home to a variety of family businesses, including Wolf/Rupp Motor.

Funding for schools must be both adequate and equitable. The future of our state and our ability to attract and retain business investment is dependent on a well-educated, welltrained workforce.” — Claudette Jones, executive director of the KNEA sought hundreds of millions in additional spending for schools. Board Chairman David Dennis said at the time that members had an obligation to advocate for students and that nothing less than funding the state law would suffice. A phone call to his home Tuesday rang unanswered. Decisions made at the July 10 board meeting will be forwarded in the fall to Republican Gov. Sam Brownback’s administration for inclusion in the 2014 budget request that will be presented to legislators in January. Legislators approved about $40 million in increases in education spending in the budget that took effect July 1. It increased the base state aid per student by $58 to $3,838. That was the first increase in per-student spending since the 2008-2009 school year and reversed a string of reductions brought about by the state’s financial struggles during the recession that began in late 2007. However, additional increases could be difficult based on new changes to the Kansas income tax code signed into law by Brownback in May. Coupled with a previously scheduled sales tax decrease, the income tax reductions will

provide $231 million in tax relief during the fiscal year beginning July 1, with the annual figure growing to $934 million after six years. That means less money coming into state government coffers. Mark Tallman, lobbyist for the school board association, said the state board has advocated for full funding of schools in the past and should at the least seek an increase in base aid for schools in the coming year. But, he said, the tax changes can’t be ignored — and what could happen to recent gains in student achievement. “KASB urges the state board to determine the potential impact of this bill on school finance and on educational outcomes in Kansas and take a leadership role of working with the governor and Legislature to minimize harmful results,” Tallman said. The funding discussion comes as a trial is under way for a lawsuit filed on behalf of 54 school districts. Their attorneys argued during a three-week hearing before a three-judge panel in Shawnee County District Court that current education spending levels are unconstitutional and that the state is in violation of a 2006 Kansas Supreme Court ruling.

From 1954-2001 E.J. Dreiling housed his businesses, Midwest Candy & Tobacco Co. and Midwest Distributors/Budweiser, in the building. Ornate details of the original building, such as dormers and wrought iron work were removed but left inside the building when it was covered in yellow brick in the 1950s. The building’s distinctive Mansard roof is the last remaining example in Ellis County of Rural Second Empire Design. The Krueger Building sold for the last time to the Liberty Group in 2001.

Liberty Group made the decision to proceed with the demolition process, Hansen said, documenting the historic and architectural elements of the building in the hope of recreating “bits and pieces in the Chestnut Street District. “We also have hopes that much of the limestone from the building can be saved in order to be used elsewhere throughout the district as a reminder of Hays’ rich history and heritage that the Opera House embodied.” Although the building has historic significance for Hays and has served as a window into the imagination of Hays’ founders, Felten is resigned to the fact that the building should be demolished. “It was an overly ambitious building, and it got used a lot,” he said. “It did its job for a long time. “Times change, and you have to go along with what you need and what you want to get rid of.” Although demolition of the building likely is the only pragmatic option for its future, the thought of seeing open air where the once grand structure now stands might fill many residents with disappointment. Schwaller said he has heard from Hays residents upset at the likelihood the building will be demolished, but said he believes most of them, although not happy about the situation, have come to understand the physical deterioration of the building is so extreme that demolition is inevitable. “I’m going to miss the building,” Schwaller said. “It was so exciting to see the brick come off in 2003, and it was so promising.”

‘It did its job’ In 2002-2003, in an effort to document the historic nature of the building, the brick facade was removed so the building could be placed on the National Register of Historic Places, and thereby be eligible for grant funding. Although a grant was received to help with restoration of the roof and third floor windows, it was determined that the foundation required repair, funds for which were “very sparse,” according to Kelli Hansen of Liberty Group. “With the current buildings in progress on Main Street and the dollars committed to those properties, coupled with the downturn in the economy, we decided for the good of the entire district, our focus needed to remain on completing that area rather than putting those dollars into the foundation of a building where no physical changes would be seen or realized and would still require millions of dollars to turn that structure into a usable property,” she said in an emailed statement. With reluctance, the

She also decided it would be better to have a partner. As she was doing her research, she came across the website for Catch a Break, a Lawrencebased nonprofit that was founded by 49-year-old Cindy Sargent, a breast cancer survivor. Sargent said it started in 2007 when she was contacted by a Kansas University fraternity housemother who was looking to help someone with cancer during the holidays. The housemother knew Sargent was a cancer survivor and belonged to a support group at Lawrence Memorial Hospital and thought she might have some connections. Sargent said she would be happy to help and sent an email to the 20 or so people in her group. “I thought I might get one person to respond, but six people did and so I’m thinking I want to help them all,” she said. She started calling friends, family and colleagues to adopt the other families during the holi-

— Cindy Sargent, a breast cancer survivor and founder of Catch a Break days, and they did. Then it became an annual event, and it grew each year. Soon after she was helping 24 families, and it because too much for her to manage on her own, so she met with the LMH Endowment Association, which helped her set up a fund. Now it helps cancer patients year-round. She calls it the Catch a Break foundation because it’s meant to help cancer patients immediately with needs such as groceries, car repairs, medicine or utility bills. “Nobody gets a lot of money out of this,” she said. “It’s just enough to catch a break. It’s enough to help get something paid.” So far, it has raised $25,000 through a fall letter campaign and word of mouth. She won’t soon forget

helping one man pay all of his utility bill before he died of cancer one month later. For the first time, his amount was zero and he would call the company every day just to hear that recording that said his balance was zero. “It was during the winter, and his bill was pretty stout, as I recall, but it gave him great joy and helped his family through the holiday season,” she said. “That’s the kind of stuff that makes it worthwhile.” When she was approached by Derusseau to start a fundraiser, she thought it was the perfect marriage. Not only will the event help raise awareness about cancer and the work of both organizations, but, more importantly, it will raise money to help those fighting cancer. Half of the money will go to Livestrong and half to Catch a Break. “Cancer is a horrible thing to go through, but for me, a lot of good things came out of it,” Sargent said. — Health reporter Karrey Britt can be reached at 832-7190.

Many Americans have throwback Fourth of July without power By Matthew Barakat Associated Press

MOUNT VERNON, VA. — George Washington never had air conditioning, but he knew how to keep cool: a mansion with lots of windows elevated on the banks of a wide, rolling river and lots of ice cream, maybe with a little brandy. It was a little like the old days without electricity Wednesday, as the nation’s capital region celebrated Independence Day the better part of a week into a widespread blackout that left millions of residents sweltering in 90-plus degree heat without air conditioning. Utilities have slowly been restoring service knocked out by a freak storm Friday from the Midwest to the Mid-Atlantic, and at least 26 people have died in the storm or its aftermath. At George Washington’s Mount Vernon estate, one of the most popular Fourth of July attractions was a demonstration of 18th-century ice cream making, one of Washington’s favorite desserts. Historical interpreters Gail Cassidy and Anette Ahrens showed the crowds how cocoa beans were roasted and ground into a paste for chocolate ice cream, made using ice hauled up in massive blocks from the Potomac River and stored underground to last as long into the summer as possible. As for beverages, Washington was no stranger to alcohol, enjoying imported Madeira wine from Portugal, distilling his own whiskey and enjoying a fruity brandy cocktail called Cherry Bounce. Washington was his own architect at Mount

Vernon, “and he was very good at it,” said Dennis Pogue, associate director for preservation at Mount Vernon. The piazza, which runs the length of the mansion, is “kind of California living in the 18th century,” Pogue said. The location, atop a sloping hill along the Potomac, catches cool breezes. Lots of windows and shutters allow for the regulation of sun and wind. And the distinctive cupola on the mansion roof serves as the mansion’s air conditioning unit, funneling hot air out the top and drawing cooler air in at the ground level. Visitors on Wednesday gathered on the mansion’s back porch, a piazza overlooking the Potomac where breezes rolled through. “It feels good out here. It’s the same thing we do in Texas,” said Chris Moore of Austin, Texas, sitting with his wife, Dina. The two had come to Virginia to see their son graduate from officer training at The

Basic School at Quantico Marine Corps Base. Moore said he opted for the smaller crowds at Mount Vernon as opposed to the massive Fourth of July Celebration on the National Mall because it afforded a better place to relax and contemplate the founding of the nation, especially since Mount Vernon on Wednesday hosted a naturalization ceremony for 100 new citizens from 47 different countries. “This place is incredible. It’s just the kind of place that people need to see,” he said, noting the divided nature of the country’s current politics. “We all need to step back and look at where we started.” Up the river in Washington, President Barack Obama also attended a naturalization ceremony at the White House, this one for active service members from 17 countries. Military families were invited for a barbecue and to watch fireworks on the South Lawn. Obama said the varied backgrounds of those taking the oath typified America’s long tradition of welcoming immigrants from around the world to its shores. “Unless you are one of the first Americans, a native American, we are all descended from folks who came from somewhere else,” he said. “The story of immigrants in America isn’t a story of them. It’s a story of us.” Presumptive GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney has spent most of the week off the campaign trail with his family in Wolfeboro, N.H., but took time Wednesday to march in the town’s Fourth of July parade.


Scalia critics say Supreme Court justice too political last term By Mark Sherman Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Justice Antonin Scalia drew unusually critical attention during this past Supreme Court term for comments he made in court and in his writing that seemed to some more political than judicial. His dissent in the Arizona immigration case contained a harsh assessment of the Obama administration’s immigration policy and prompted a public rebuke from a fellow Republican-appointed judge. Scalia’s aggressive demeanor during argument sessions even earned him some gentle teasing from his closest personal friend on the court. Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, speaking at a Washington convention, said the term’s highprofile cases may explain why Scalia “called counsel’s argument ‘extraordinary’ no fewer than 10 times.” The 76-year-old Scalia is a gifted writer with a razor wit and willingness to do battle with those on the other side of an issue. Those qualities have made him a powerful voice, an entertaining presence and a magnet for criticism on the court for more than 25 years. Even with that vivid background, some of Scalia’s recent remarks stood out in the eyes of court observers. Ten lawyers who appear regularly before the Supreme Court, including two former Scalia law clerks, were interviewed for this story and said they too had taken note of Scalia’s recent comments. But mindful that they might appear before the high court or be in a position to submit legal briefs, they all declined to be identified by name. Measured by wins and losses, the court term did not end well for Scalia. He was on the losing end of the court’s biggest cases involving health care, immigration,

lying about military medals and prison sentences, both for crack cocaine offenders and juvenile killers. Scalia The last words Scalia uttered in court this term dealt with his disagreement with the court’s majority in a decision that watered down Arizona’s crackdown on illegal immigrants. Summarizing his views in court, Scalia commented on President Barack Obama’s recent announcement changing the deportation rules for some children of illegal immigrants. And in his written opinion, he referenced anti-freeblack laws of slave states as a precedent for state action on immigration. Both drew critical notice. “The president said at a news conference that the new program is ‘the right thing to do’ in light of Congress’ failure to pass the administration’s

proposed revision of the Immigration Act. Perhaps it is, though Arizona may not think so. But to say, as the court does, that Arizona contradicts federal law by enforcing applications of the Immigration Act that the president declines to enforce boggles the mind,” Scalia said. The outcry over his reference to Obama’s announcement was immediate and included a call by liberal Washington Post columnist E.J. Dionne for Scalia to resign. Scalia’s defenders say the criticism is misplaced. They say the justice was doing something much more familiar and common, attacking the majority opinion by Justice Anthony Kennedy. “He really wasn’t criticizing the Obama administration’s position. He was just using it as a timely example of why he thought his position was the better one in the Arizona case,” said Brian Fitzpatrick, a Vanderbilt University law professor who once served as a law clerk to Scalia.

Eating machine: Chestnut wins 6th straight hot dog title By Colleen Long Associated Press

NEW YORK — Joey Chestnut won his sixth straight Fourth of July hot dog-eating contest at Coney Island, downing 68 dogs and buns on Wednesday to tie his personal best in a sweaty, gag-inducing spectacle. Last year, the 28-yearold San Jose, Calif., man nicknamed “Jaws” won with 62 hot dogs. He bested his main rival this year by 16 dogs, scarfing down all 68 in 10 minutes in the sweltering summer heat to take home $10,000 and the mustard yellow belt. “I feel good, it was a great win,” Chestnut said after the contest, adding he wished he could have eaten a record number of hot dogs for the audience. “I tried my best. I’m looking forward to next year already.” Second place went to Tim Janus of New York with 52 hot dogs, who received $5,000. Third place went to Patrick Bertoletti of Chicago with 51, who won $2,500. Chestnut was neckand-neck with competitors during the first half of the contest, but he pulled ahead in the remaining minutes, choking down dog after dog, while other competitors slowed as the clock wound down. Sonya Thomas, of Alexandria, Va., downed 45 hot dogs to win the women’s competition. She reached her goal of eating 45 in the time limit — her age — and took home her own pink champion’s belt and $10,000. Thomas, known as the “Black Widow” of competitive eating, won last year as well, the first time a separate contest was held for women. Juliet Lee, of Germantown, Md., took second place with 33

FIVE-TIME REIGNING CHAMPION JOEY CHESTNUT CELEBRATES after winning his sixth Nathan’s Famous Hot Dog Eating World Championship with a total of 68 hot dogs and buns Wednesday at Coney Island, in the Brooklyn borough of New York. and won $5,000. Lee also won second place last year. Third place went to Michelle Lesco, of Tuscon, Ariz., who received $2,500 for downing 25 and a half. Thomas said she started to feel sick while eating but kept pushing so she could win the title. “There is a limit so I have to fight,” she said. Thomas said next year she’s going to beat her record again and eat 46. “Because I’m going to be 46 next year,” she said. The Nathan’s Famous Fourth of July International Hot Dog Eating Contest has been a city tradition for 97 years. Tens of thousands of spectators gather to gawk as contestants shimmy, slither and

bounce as they dip hot dogs in water and cram them down their throats. For some, it’s a painful reminder of excess — especially as the U.S. battles a growing obesity problem. The American Medical Association opposes competitive eating, saying it’s harmful to the human body. But the competitive eaters are quite trim. Chestnut is more than 6 feet tall and a muscly 210 pounds, and Thomas, who is 5-foot-5, weighed in at barely 100 pounds. Hot dogs, though, aren’t the healthiest of choices. In addition to beef, they include salt and various food additives. Chestnut’s total dog count was equal to more than 20,000 calories.

Physicists say they’ve found ‘God particle’ By John Heilprin Associated Press

GENEVA — Scientists at the world’s biggest atom smasher hailed the discovery of “the missing cornerstone of physics” Wednesday, cheering the apparent end of a decades-long quest for a new subatomic particle called the Higgs boson, or “God particle,” which could help explain why all matter has mass and crack open a new realm of subatomic science. First proposed as a theory in the 1960s, the maddeningly elusive Higgs had been hunted by at least two generations of physicists who believed it would help shape our understanding of how the universe began and how its most elemental pieces fit together. As the highly technical findings were announced by two independent teams involving more than 5,000 researchers, the usually sedate corridors of the European Center for Nuclear Research, or CERN, erupted in frequent applause and standing ovations. Physicists who spent their careers in pursuit of the particle shed tears. The new particle appears to share many of the same qualities as the one predicted by Scottish physicist Peter Higgs and others and is perhaps the biggest accomplishment at CERN since its founding in 1954 outside Geneva along the Swiss-French border. Rolf Heuer, director of CERN, said the newly discovered particle is a boson, but he stopped just shy of claiming outright that it is the Higgs boson itself — an extremely fine distinction. “As a layman, I think we did it,” he told the elated

FABIOLA GIANOTTI, ATLAS EXPERIMENT SPOKESPERSON, LEFT, and Joe Incandela, CMS experiment spokesman, look at a screen during a scientific seminar to deliver the latest update in the search for the Higgs boson Wednesday at the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) in Meyrin near Geneva, Switzerland. The head of the world’s biggest atom smasher is claiming discovery of a new particle that he says is consistent with the long-sought Higgs boson known popularly as the “God particle,” which is believed to give all matter in the universe size and shape. crowd. “We have a discovery. We have observed a new particle that is consistent with a Higgs boson.” The Higgs, which until now had been purely theoretical, is regarded as key to understanding why matter has mass, which combines with gravity to give all objects weight. The idea is much like gravity and Isaac Newton’s early theories. Gravity was there all the time before Newton explained it. The Higgs boson was believed to be there, too. And now that scientists have actually seen something much like it, they can put that knowledge to further use. The center’s atom smasher, the $10 billion Large Hadron Collider, sends protons whizzing

around a circular 17-mile underground tunnel at nearly the speed of light to create high-energy collisions. The aftermath of those impacts can offer clues about dark matter, antimatter and the creation of the universe, which many theorize occurred in a massive explosion known as the Big Bang. Most of the particles that result from the collisions exist for only the smallest fractions of a second. But finding a Higgs-like boson was one of the biggest challenges in physics: Out of some 500 trillion collisions, just several dozen produced “events” with significant data, said Joe Incandela of the University of Califor-

New tests revive debate over Arafat death JERUSALEM — The discovery of traces of a radioactive agent on clothing reportedly worn by Yasser Arafat in his final days reignited a cauldron of conspiracy theories Wednesday about the mysterious death of the longtime Palestinian leader. Arafat’s widow, who ordered the tests by a Swiss lab, called for her husband’s body to be exhumed, and Arafat’s successor gave tentative approval for an autopsy. But experts warned that even after the detection of polonium-210, getting answers on the cause of death

will be tough. Arafat was 75 when he died Nov. 11, 2004, in a French military hospital. He had been airlifted to the facility just weeks earlier with a mysterious illness, after being confined by Israel for three years to his West Bank headquarters. At the time, French doctors said Arafat died of a massive stroke. According to French medical records, he had suffered inflammation, jaundice and a blood condition known as disseminated intravascular coagulation, or DIC.

Heuer said the discovery was “most probably a Higgs boson, but we have to find out what kind of Higgs boson it is.” He referred to the discovery as a missing cornerstone of science.

WASHINGTON — A majority of economists in the latest Associated Press Economy Survey expect the national unemployment rate to stay above 6 percent — the upper bounds of what’s considered healthy — for at least four more years. If the economists are correct, the job market will still be unhealthy seven years after the Great Recession officially ended in June 2009. That would be the longest stretch of high unemployment since the end of World War II. And it means the job market and the economy — President Barack Obama’s main political threats — would remain big challenges in either a second Obama term or President Mitt Romney’s first term. “The election isn’t going to be a miracle cure for the unemployment rate — that’s for sure,” says Sean Snaith, an economics professor at the University of Central Florida. He thinks unemployment, which is 8.2 percent now, won’t drop back to 6 percent until after 2016. Economists consider a “normal” level to be between 5 percent and 6 percent. The economists surveyed by the AP foresee an unemployment rate of 8 percent on Election

ASHLEY PERKINS, OF FORT LAUDERDALE, FLA., STANDS IN LINE at a job fair June 26 in Detroit. High unemployment threatens not only President Barack Obama’s re-election prospects. It will also bedevil whoever occupies the White House for the next four years. Day. That would be the highest rate any postwar president running for reelection has faced. The survey results come before the government reports Friday on hiring during June. Fears about the economy escalated after U.S. employers added just 69,000 jobs in May, the fewest in a year and the third straight month of weak job growth. The AP survey collected the views late last month from 32 private, corporate and academic economists on a range of issues. Among their views:

The economy will continue to grow, only slowly. The average forecast for the April-June period is that GDP grew

at an annual rate of 2 percent. That’s down from a 2.4 percent forecast in April. The economists think the rate in the final six months of the year will be just 2.3 percent. That’s too weak to bring the unemployment rate down.

Monthly job gains will average 139,000 the rest of this year — barely enough to keep up with population growth and prevent unemployment from worsening. In their forecast in April, the economists predicted average monthly job gains of 189,000.

The one step Europe could take that would boost confidence in its financial system quickly would be a bailout pro-

gram like the Troubled Asset Relief Program, or TARP, that Congress approved in 2008 to rescue U.S. banks after the financial crisis hit.

The biggest threat to the U.S. economy is the tax increases and spending cuts that will take effect Jan. 1 unless Congress reaches an agreement. Many economists and the International Monetary Fund have warned that these measures would push the economy off a “fiscal cliff” and back into recession. An unemployment rate of 5 percent to 6 percent is typical of a healthy economy. The rate usually doesn’t fall much lower, in part because many people who leave a job or start looking for one after finishing school don’t get one right away. Most economists also say that if the Federal Reserve sought to lower unemployment much further, the economy could overheat and ignite inflation.

Reasonable plan Budgeting for three new officers for the Lawrence Police Department is a reasonable step for next year.


awrence City Manager David Corliss was right to take a moderate approach to expanded police department spending in the budget plan he presented last week. Rather than recommending that the city move forward on a new $30 million police facility and staff increases geared to adding 46 new officers in the next four years, Corliss put together a budget that calls for the city to hire three new police officers in the coming year. That obviously is far less than police officials were hoping for, but it’s a reasonable approach. Corliss pointed out that he didn’t consider three officers to be sufficient to meet the department’s needs, but added, “I think it may be as much as the community and commissioners are willing to do next year. If they want to do more, that would be appropriate.” Final budget decisions are, of course, up to the elected officials, and the large police funding request hadn’t garnered overwhelming support on the commission. With the number of other major projects currently on the city’s plate, it is prudent to take more time to consider major police expenditures. As previously noted in this space, $42 million in staff and facility improvements for the Lawrence police would seem to indicate that the department is in dire condition, which it is not. City and police officials should step back and take a look at how these requests could be trimmed or staged to minimize their impact on the city budget. As also noted previously, the city owes it to taxpayers to fully explore the possibility of a consolidated city-county law enforcement agency before building a facility that essentially would close the door on that possibility for several decades. Both city commissioners and the community fully support efforts to ensure that Lawrence has an effective and efficient police force. Adding three officers, as Corliss has recommended, is a step in that direction that can be followed up with additional study of how best to address the city’s future law enforcement needs.

Greatness is achieved, not declared Can you say why America is the greatest country in the world? The question proceeds of course, from an assumption, i.e., that America is, indeed, the greatest nation on Earth. When it is posed by a chipper college student to Will McAvoy, the dyspeptic cable news anchor played by Jeff Daniels in the new HBO series “The Newsroom,” he gores that assumption with acid glee. By no standard — or at least, no standard he cares to acknowledge — does McAvoy believe America is still the world’s greatest nation. Freedom? That’s hardly unique, he says, noting that Canada, the United Kingdom, France, Germany and Japan are all free. And he ticks off a number of other measures — literacy, life expectancy, math, exports, infant mortality — by which, he says, America now lags much of the world. Therefore, he says, America is, in fact, not the greatest nation on the planet. There is something telling and true in the crestfallen expressions with which the audience greets that declaration. It’s as if someone has switched off the sun. America believes in nothing quite so deeply as its own greatness. There is something quint-

The Japanese, we may presume, love Japan. Surely the Canadians feel a swelling pride at the sight of their flag and the Spanish stand a little straighter at the playing of their national anthem. But does any other nation feel the need to so routinely assure itself and remind others that it is the most excellent of them all? “America,” says Sean Hannity with numbing regularity, is “the best, greatest nation God has ever given man on the face of the Earth.” It might be said, that the seed of American greatness lies in the very

need to be great, to raise the foam index finger and chant “USA! USA!” — to live up to our own self-image. Unfortunately, the seed of American self-delusion lies in the same place. To read the test scores, to watch the clown show that passes for TV news, to walk the boarded up streets of downtown Wherever, USA, to talk to a father about his kids’ future, is to take the fictional news anchor’s point: Namely, that there is something sad about yelling, “We’re No. 1!” when you are, in fact, not. But — and a character on the show reminds McAvoy of this — we can be, always. The potential of it lies in America’s endless capacity for reinvention, the path to it in America’s matchless sense of mission. The nation has always risen to the challenge of greatness when it had a goal, a purpose to unite behind, a thing to get done. That is the story of the Revolution, the Union victory, the Great Depression, the Second World War, the Marshall Plan, the Berlin airlift, the Civil Rights Movement, the moon landing. So what is our mission now? What is the goal toward which we strive in 2012? And therein lies the problem: you don’t know either, do you?

Bill Clinton did mention something about a bridge to somewhere or other. George W. Bush was handed a mission — fighting terrorism — on a golden tray and bungled it. President Obama, unlike candidate Obama, has yet to articulate a goal that excites and unites. Like a knife’s blade, greatness requires a whetstone to sharpen itself against. No whetstone presents itself in a nation where, as McAvoy notes, people define themselves by who they voted for in the last election, a nation whose depth of division and lack of unifying principle now poison the very air, a nation where, to speak of greatness is, increasingly, to speak of history. But what of the future? That will require mission and purpose, the realization that who we are is bound up in the things — audacious and spectacular things — we come together to get done. We ought to spend more time deciding what those things will be, and less reassuring ourselves of our own wonderfulness. True greatness, after all, is not declared. It is achieved. — Leonard Pitts Jr. is a columnist for the Miami Herald. He chats with readers from noon to 1 p.m. CDT each Wednesday on

Iran draws ‘red lines’ on nuclear talks WASHINGTON — The text of Iran’s negotiation proposal to the “P5+1” group last month makes clear what Iran’s “red lines” are in the nuclear talks, and where it might be willing to compromise. The Iranian PowerPoint presentation, obtained from a source close to the talks, stresses Iran’s status as a signatory of the Non-Proliferation Treaty, including the right to enrich uranium. Iranian negotiators devoted the first part of their presentation in Moscow to this topic, under the title: “Why enrichment is an inalienable and chartered right under the NPT.” To buttress their argument on enrichment, the Iranians cite several passages in the treaty, plus references in other international documents. Some U.S. and Israeli experts question this claim, given what they say is the vagueness of the treaty. But it’s clear that Iran sees recognition as the cornerstone of any deal. Enrichment has always been the decisive issue in nuclear talks. The P5+1 demands that Iran stop enrichment until it’s in full compliance with all U.N. resolutions. Iran insists on its NPT rights. Some Iranian officials have indicated that Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei might accept a deal in which Iran is allowed some modest enrichment activity, but agrees to limit production below the level of roughly 800 kilograms needed to make a

bomb — exporting, say, 400 kilograms each time it nears that threshold. But there’s no hint of any such “win-win” formula in the negotiating documents. The Iranian document does signal some flexibility on the P5+1’s “confidencebuilding” demand that Iran stop enriching to 20 percent and export its existing stockpile of such fuel. The hint comes in a vaguely worded offer to “cooperate with 5+1 to provide enriched fuel needed for TRR,” a reference to the Tehran Research Reactor that uses 20 percent fuel. Iranian sources say this opens the door for agreement to “stop and ship” production of the 20 percent fuel. But even if a formula could be negotiated on the 20 percent issue, two big problems would remain. First, the Iranians emphatically reject the P5+1 demand that they close the enrichment facility at

Fordow, buried deep under a mountain near Qom. Explaining why this facility is so heavily fortified, the document states: “Facing constant threats, we need a back-up facility to safeguard our enrichment activities.” This is precisely what worries the United States and Israel. A deeper problem is that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu views the 20 percent issue as a diversion. Israeli officials see Iran’s estimated 140 kilograms of 20 percent fuel as the “cherry” on top of its stockpile of about 6,000 kilograms of 3.5 percent enriched uranium that could be pumped up within a year to make a half-dozen nuclear bombs. Netanyahu argues it would be a mistake to accept the cherry but leave Iran with the cake. Much of the Iranian document summarizes their wellknown positions. In a section titled “a framework for comprehensive and targeted dialogue for long-term cooperation,” Tehran proposes the basic trade-off: Iran “emphasizes ... its opposition to nuclear weapons based on the Supreme Leader’s fatwa against such weapons.” In return, the United States, Britain, China, France, Germany and Russia would recognize Iran’s rights under the NPT, “particularly its enrichment activities.” Iran also proposes “transparency measures” that would include cooperation with the International Atom-

ic Energy Agency on what the IAEA said in March are “possible military dimensions” of Iran’s avowedly peaceful program. In exchange, the United States and its allies would halt their unilateral sanctions outside the United Nations framework. Complicating matters further, the Iranians also propose cooperation on “regional issues, especially Syria and Bahrain,” in exchange for their help “combating piracy and counter-narcotic activities.” This linkage of non-nuclear with nuclear issues probably won’t fly with Washington. If the experts’ talks break down, the question will be whether negotiations might resume on another track. Some Iranians have signaled that Tehran might be ready for secret bilateral talks with the United States, but time is short, and election-year pressures will make real bargaining difficult. Meanwhile, sanctions squeeze tighter and the threat of Israeli military action looms. One final item in the 48page document caught my eye — a warning that Iran may need even more 20 percent fuel than anticipated because of plans for “at least four other research reactors” and for exporting enriched fuel “to other countries.” Maybe that’s a bargaining chip, or maybe it’s a sign these negotiations really are headed into the ditch. — David Ignatius is a columnist for Washington Post Writers Group.

Mendoza stays up; Jays drop Royals ——

High pitches by K.C. lead to sac-fly runs, 4-1 loss to Toronto

The Associated Press

TORONTO — When Luis Mendoza couldn’t keep his sinker down, the Toronto Blue Jays took advantage. Carlos Villanueva pitched six shutout innings, Yunel Escobar drove in two runs and the Blue Jays beat the Kansas City Royals, 4-1, Wednesday night. Three of Toronto’s four runs came on sacrifice flies, leaving Royals manager Ned Yost frustrated that Mendoza was unable to get ground balls. “The only thing was he couldn’t get the ball down in crucial situations,” Yost said. “All three runs came on sac flies on pitches that were up.” Every Blue Jays starter had at least one hit as Toronto won for the fourth time in six games. The Blue Jays are 6-1 against Kansas City this season and have won nine off the past 12 meetings dating to 2011. Jeff Francoeur’s RBI triple in the seventh provided the only run of the game for the Royals, who have lost five off six. “You give (Villanueva) credit for doing what he did but our offense just didn’t do it today,” Kansas City’s Alex Gordon said. Toronto opened the scoring in the second when Rajai Davis tripled and scored on Kelly Johnson’s sacrifice fly. The Blue Jays added two more in the third. Edwin Encarnacion led off with a ground ball to second and was safe when Mendoza and Eric Hosmer got tangled up at first, with Mendoza catching the throw by failing to step on the base. “I was kind of late getting over to the bag,” Hosmer said. “Me and Mendy kind of called it at the same time. I think I just broke too late and probably should have let Mendy take care of that right there.” Yost saw it differently from the dugout. “Mendoza has got to get out of the way,” Yost said. “I could hear (Hosmer) screaming ‘I got it, I got it,’ and if I

KANSAS UNIVERSITY ASSISTANT COACHES TIM GRUNHARD, LEFT, AND CLINT BOWEN will be responsible for leading KU’s recruitment of Kansas prospects under head coach Charlie Weis. Weis believes Grunhard and Bowen’s local connections will help lock up talent in the Sunflower State.

Grunhard,, Bowen to lead wayy in recruitingg Kansas By Matt Tait

For the past few decades Kansas University football coaches have approached recruiting the state in a variety of ways. From splitting Kansas into thirds to handing out a section of the state to each assistant coach on staff and everything in between, KU’s recent head coaches have attacked the home state with varying degrees of commitment and success. For new coach Charlie Weis, the Sunflower State seems to be as important as anything in his recruiting philosophy, and his early emphasis on landing athletes from the area certainly has shown that. “I think you better start winning on more of your local guys and not just concede ‘em to Missouri and Kansas State,” Weis said. “You just can’t do that. Now, are they gonna win their fair share? Yep, they’re they re

I think you better start winning on more of your local guys and not just concede ‘em to Missouri and Kansas State. You just can’t do that.” — Kansas University coach Charlie Weis on his recruiting philosophy gonna win their fair share. But we’re gonna win our fair share, too.” The way Weis sees it, signing local talent early only can mean good things in the future. “What happens is, when you start winning some of them, then you start winning more of them because those guys talk to the other guys about the experiences they’re having,” Weis said. “It’s all about word of mouth for the players.” For Weis, it’s all about two guys. Although the majority of his coaching staff will have

some kind of role in recruiting Kansas, Weis is basing his approach around special teams coordinator Clint Bowen and offensive line coach Tim Grunhard. “Let’s realize what we’ve got here,” Weis said. “We’ve got two guys that know Kansas that have big names in Kansas.” Weis is counting on Grunhard to deliver in the Kansas City area. Not only does his experience playing for the Kansas City Chiefs give him an automatic in, but his time as the head coach at Bishop Miege High in Roeland Park also figures to give KU an advantage. Since Weis hired Grunhard back in December, two players from Miege already have committed to Kansas. One, freshman-to-be Tre Parmalee, will be here this fall. The other, quarterback Montell Cozart, will come in with the Class of 2013. “No one’s more known in Kansas City than Tim Grunhard, hard,” Weis said. “There There

might be guys that might have been better players, but no one’s more known.” It’s not just name recognition that Weis is expecting to make Grunhard a successful recruiter in the state. “His personality’s infectious,” Weis said. “He’s hardworking, he’s diligent, he’s easy to talk to, he’s smart. So what kid in Kansas wouldn’t know Grunhard?” As for Bowen, he’s the Lawrence equivalent of Grunhard. Well known by many around town, the Lawrence native has spent his life dedicated to the city he was raised in and has worked under three different head coaches at KU, where he played defensive back from 1992-93. “There’s no one any more loyal to this school than Clint Bowen,” Weis said. “He might be the leader of the pack. Lawrence guy. Dad, brother, him, all went to this school. He’s come here three times. I told Please see RECRUITING, page 3B

Firebirds carry winning winter culture to summer By Benton Smith

John Young/Journal-World File Photo

FREE STATE SENIORS-TO-BE, FROM LEFT, CHELSEA CASADY, A’Liyah Rogers, Abbey Casady, and Kennedy Kirkpatrick walk down the court during a game against Blue Valley West on Jan. 26 at FSHS. The Firebirds girls baskett ball team finished 8-2 in its recent summer league schedule.

Following a season in which the Free State High girls basketball team set a program record with 16 wins, coach Bryan Duncan knew this summer would be crucial if the Firebirds wanted to carry that success over into 2012-13. With an upperclassmanheavy roster, FSHS finished its summer league schedule 8-2, with victories over a couple of the Sunflower League’s better teams, Olathe Northwest and Shawnee Mission Northwest. What made that possible, Duncan said, was an understanding on the part of Free State’s players that if basketball is a year-round commitment, victories come easier in December through March. Returning seniors such as Kennedy Kirkpatrick, Abbey and Chelsea Casady, A’Liyah Rogers and Ariana and Summer Frantz, like many of

their younger teammates, had plenty of obligations but made sure to commit time to the basketball program. “I was impressed from Day One in camp to our Wednesday workouts throughout our summer,” Duncan said, “with all of our players and all the maturity they showed.” Having years of experience on their side, the coach added, helped the players understand their roles. Kirkpatrick led the team of guards with her scoring, while others ran in transition, moved the ball and rebounded. Duncan said Rogers stood out with the jump she has made from the end of last season, showing a greater ability to attack the basket and defend. “Everybody has really bought into winning,” Duncan said, “and being the best team we can possibly be.” From Firebirds who have varsity experience, such as Scout Wiebe, Courtney Parker and Milly Shade, to younger

players such as Ciara Carey, Adriana Jadlow and Lily Ross, FSHS got plenty of contributions this summer. Madison Piper, a future Firebird who will be in the eighth grade this coming school year, even played with Free State. Said Kirkpatrick: “We’ve definitely had people step up and realize that they need to take bigger roles.” But the style of play hasn’t changed with the departure of starting guards Lynn Robinson and Jackie Garcia. Summer Frantz said FSHS looked the same in its June outings as it did last season, with a lack of post players and a lot of running. For league games on Monday nights, Duncan always had the sense that the Firebirds were excited to play and determined to win. As he put it, there weren’t a lot of nonchalant moments. “It makes my job easy,” he joked. Please see FSHS, page 3B

Lakers land two-time MVP Nash PHOENIX (AP) — Steve Nash is going to the Los Angeles Lakers, a Pacific Division rival the twotime MVP point guard tried so hard to beat, with little success, in his eight seasons with the Phoenix Suns. At Nash’s request, the Lakers and Suns reached a sign-andtrade deal, with Los Angeles using the trade exception it got when it sent Lamar Odom to Dallas to facilitate the transaction. The 38-year-old Nash, who spent the past eight seasons with the Suns, was a free agent but a sign-and-trade agreement

was necessary for the Lakers to afford him. He agreed to a three-year, $27 million contract. In return, the Suns get four draft picks — first rounders in 2013 and 2015 and second rounders in 2013 and 2014. Nash Nash’s agent Bill Duffy said the deal was finalized about 8 p.m. CDT Wednesday. In a statement released by

the agent, Nash said that after he and the Suns agreed to part ways, he re-approached them to ask to pursue a sign-and-trade deal with Los Angeles “because it is very important to me to stay near my children and family,� who live in Phoenix. “They were very apprehensive and didn’t want to do it,� Nash said. “Fortunately for me, they reconsidered. They saw that they were able to get assets for their team that will make them better, assets they would not have otherwise had and it made sense for them to do a

deal that helps their team get better.� There had been sign-andtrade talks with New York and a lucrative free agent offer from Toronto. The deal will put Nash on the floor with the team he tried so hard to unseat as a Western Conference power, teaming him with Kobe Bryant, Andrew Bynum and at least for now, Pau Gasol. The Suns at least get something in the loss of their longtime leader and one of the city’s most popular athletes.

All-Star format not quite perfect By Neil Best Newsday

There are people old enough to vote who barely recall a time predating “This Time It Counts,� that dark, pre-2003 epoch before MLB and Fox sought to revive the All-Star Game by tying it to home field in the World Series. A decade later, here we are, with the concept well established and managers and players indeed seeming to take the game a bit more seriously than they had around the turn of the century. Fox’s Joe Buck cited the classic, 15-inning Midsummer Classic of 2008 at Yankee Stadium as an example. “A lot of the starters were still in the dugout at the end of that long night, cheering on their teammates, and that was a huge change from before ‘This Time It Counts,�’ he said on a call Monday to promote next Tuesday’s game. “I think it’s brought a competitive fire back to this game that for a while was lacking.� Commissioner Bud Selig said, “I think it’s worked well, and it worked well right from the beginning.� Let’s concede that the added stakes have fostered at least some sense of significance. The problem is baseball and Fox want to have it both ways. The game counts, but the fans still vote for starters, meaning the count can be as fickle and arbitrary as ever. Speaking of which ... a wave of late ballot-stuffing by Giants fans — following a wave of late promotion by the Giants — caused vote totals of their players to skyrocket, and lifted Pablo Sandoval over David Wright as the starter at third base. “Our fans are crazy,� first baseman Brandon Belt told the San Francisco Chronicle after getting 3.9 million votes, second only to Joey Votto. “We now officially have the best fans in baseball. If they can put me second, that is unbelievable.� Whether or not they are the best fans in baseball, apparently their proximity to Silicon Valley has taught them how to expose flaws in an Internetbased voting system. At least Belt finished second. Not so Sandoval. He pushed out the more deserving Wright, who made the team as a reserve. When I asked Selig on Monday whether he feared such results de-legitimize the game, he recalled the case of the 1957 Reds, whose fans stuffed the ballot box so shamelessly that commissioner Ford Frick had to step in to add Willie Mays and Hank Aaron — and fans lost the right to vote for more than a decade. Selig said no such action is required now because of “safeguards� that were not in place in the past, such as fans, players and managers all having a hand in the roster. He also cited the voting as a function of the Giants’ consistent sellout crowds, and of excitement over the process in general.

ROGER FEDERER PLAYS A RETURN TO MIKHAIL YOUZHNY during his quarterfinal victory Wednesday at Wimbledon.

Federer awaits Djokovic in Wimbledon semis WIMBLEDON, ENGLAND — Novak Djokovic closed out his latest Wimbledon win with an ace, then threw a fist and let loose a primal scream. Bring on Roger Federer. They’ll meet at Wimbledon for the first time Friday. Federer earned a record 32nd Grand Slam semifinal berth and moved closer to a recordtying seventh Wimbledon title Wednesday, beating Mikhail Youzhny, 6-1, 6-2, 6-2. Minutes later on an adjacent court, defending champion Djokovic finished off Florian Mayer, 6-4, 6-1, 6-4. Federer has a 14-12 edge against the topranked Djokovic. They’ve met in Grand Slam semifinals five times the past two years, with Djokovic winning four of those matches. They’ve never played each other on grass. “A nice matchup,� Federer said. “Obviously I’m aware that Novak is the defending champion and the world No. 1. That’s not going to make it easy.� “It’s always a pleasure playing against Roger,� Djokovic said. “Obviously he’s a great champion. He has been so dominant and consistent in these Grand Slams, and he’s really an ultimate challenge on grass courts.� The other semifinal will match No. 4-seeded Andy Murray against No. 5 Jo-Wilfried Tsonga. Murray, seeking to become the first British man since 1938 to reach the Wimbledon final, needed nearly four hours to defeat No. 7 David Ferrer, 6-7 (5), 7-6 (6), 6-4, 7-6 (4). Tsonga advanced to the semifinals for the second year in a row by beating first-time Grand Slam quarterfinalist Philipp Kohlschreiber, 7-6 (6), 4-6, 7-6 (3), 6-2. Murray and Tsonga are both seeking their first major title. With two-time champion Rafael Nadal eliminated last week from one half of the draw, the Federer-Djokovic winner will be a big favorite Sunday against a first-time Wimbledon finalist.


Suns, Beasley agree on deal PHOENIX — A person familiar with the situation says free agent forward Michael Beasley has agreed to a two-year, $18 million deal with the Phoenix Suns. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because deals can’t be announced until July 11. Beasley, the second overall pick in the 2008 draft out of Kansas State, averaged 15.1 points per game in his four NBA seasons, two with Miami and the past two with Minnesota. His best season was 2010-11, when he averaged 19.2 points with the Timberwolves. It has been a busy 24 hours for the Suns, who agreed to an offer sheet with restricted free agent guard Eric Gordon on Tuesday, then agreed to a sign-and-trade deal that sends Steve Nash to the Los Angeles Lakers on Wednesday night.


Marlins acquire Astros’ Lee PITTSBURGH — The Houston Astros traded slugger Carlos Lee to the Miami Marlins on Wednesday in exchange for a pair of prospects.

The Astros acquired third baseman Matt Dominguez and left-handed pitcher Rob Rasmussen in the deal. The 36-year-old Lee spent five-plus seasons with the Astros and is hitting .287 with five homers and 29 RBIs in 65 games this year.

Dodgers place Ethier on DL LOS ANGELES — Andre Ethier went on the 15-day disabled list Wednesday because of a strained left oblique, leaving the struggling Los Angeles Dodgers without two of their All-Star outfielders. Matt Kemp has been out since May 30. Ethier’s move was retroactive to June 28.

Sporting K.C. tops Montreal MONTREAL — Kai Kamara and Graham Zusi scored on penalty kicks in the second half Wednesday night, lifting Sporting Kansas City to a 3-1 victory over the Montreal Impact. Fans booed through much of the second half after referee Sorin Stoica called Montreal’s Patrice Bernier for an accidental hand ball in the area for one penalty and then awarded another after what looked like incidental contact by captain Davy Arnaud. After Kamara and Zusi converted from the spot to erase a 1-0 deficit, substitute Jacob Peterson put the match away for Kansas City (10-5-2) with a goal from the right side in the 82nd minute as Sporting ended a two-game losing streak.


German wins Tour stage 4 ROUEN, FRANCE — Germany’s Andre Greipel led a bunch sprint to win the fourth stage of the Tour de France on Wednesday, after several riders — including world champion Mark Cavendish of Britain — were involved in a late crash.

Greipel With less than 2 miles left, Cavendish went down in a crash — scraping up his rainbow-colored jersey of world champion. He got back on his bicycle and rode gingerly to finish the stage. With Cavendish out of the picture, Greipel burst out of the depleted group of sprinters, and sped to the straightaway finish, a split second ahead of Italy’s Alessandro Petacchi and Dutch rider Tom Veelers. “This is what we wanted. It’s a good victory,� said Greipel after his 14th victory in all competitions this year. He said he didn’t pay much attention to the late crash. “I heard something behind me ... but 60 kilometers per hour, you don’t worry about what happened behind,� the Lotto-Belisol rider said in an interview with France-2 TV.

Frankamp scores 17 for U.S. at worlds By Gary Bedore

Future Kansas University basketball guard Conner Frankamp scored 17 points in the United States’ 116-47 rout of China on Wednesday in the final preliminaryr o u n d game of the FIBA Under-17 w o r l d championships in Frankamp Lithuania. Frankamp, a 6-1 senior from Wichita North, hit seven of 15 shots, including three of seven threepointers. He added three rebounds with two assists and a turnover in 23 minutes. “It’s really nice to have our depth,” Frankamp said of the (5-0) U.S., which had seven players score in double figures. “You can

work as hard as you can out there and then somebody will come in for you and do the same thing you did. There’s no letup.” Stephen Domingo had 16 points, followed by Stanley Johnson (15), BeeJay Anya, Kendrick Nunn and Jahlil Okafor (13) and Justise Winslow (12). Tyus Jones had 11 assists. “I think both of those things were why we played so well,” Frankamp said of being fired up on the Fourth of July as well as wanting to make a statement heading into the medal round. The U.S. will meet Canada (2-3) in Friday’s quarterfinals. The game, to start at 7:45 a.m., Central time, is available online at “Our offense will come. We just have to keep playing hard on defense,” Frankamp said after holding China, a team that was averaging 66.2 points a game, to under 50.

Lions and Firebirds never faced off, each Wednesday a few teams, including LHS, would get together with FSHS to scrimmage in a practice-like setting. Score wasn’t kept, there were no officials and coaches could stop play at any time to address whatever issues came up. A number of schools from the Topeka area, as well as Holton and Blue Valley Southwest, participated at one point or another.

O Adams in town: Anrio Adams, a 6-3 combo guard from Seattle’s Rainier Beach High, did indeed arrive Wednesday for the second session of summer school. All six of KU’s incoming scholarship players are now in town attending class while preparing for the Aug. 6-14 trip to Switzerland and France. O Kaun’s team 2-0: Former KU center Sasha Kaun, a starter on Russia’s national team, scored 10 points and grabbed seven rebounds in an 84-69 win over Dominican Republic Wednesday at the Olympic qualifying tournament. Russia, 2-0, is trying to finish in the top three of 12 teams to advance to the 2012 London Olympics.

Frantz said the players appreciated the unique format. “When we go in we don’t know anything about the other teams,” she said. “We just have to try to come together right there.” Plus, Duncan said the coaches loved it because they could work on so many different aspects of the game. “I believe it may be the best thing we’ve done this summer,” he said.

involved with somebody, the coaches get apologetic to Clint.” Although just one member of Weis’ first class — offensive lineman Brian Beckman, of Blue Valley West — lists Kansas as his home state, the early returns on Class No. 2 have shown an increase in commitments from the state. Cozart, tight end Ben Johnson, of BasehorLinwood, and quarterback Jordan Darling, of Shawnee Mission East, were among the first players in the Class of 2013 to commit to KU, and Grunhard was the lead recruiter on two of the three. “We’ll sprinkle everyone else in,” said Weis,

emphasizing that his entire staff would have a hand in recruiting Kansas. “But it all starts with those two.” For Bowen, taking on such a responsibility has been a breeze. “If you are a Kansas guy, you should have some state pride,” the former Lawrence High Lion said. “If you are from the Kansas City area, you should have some pride in your area and want to come help the local university.” Added Grunhard: “We’re all on the same page and there are a lot of good guys here working hard to make this program the best that it possibly can be.”

Phils’ Lee records first victory The Associated Press

Phillies 9, Mets 2 NEW YORK — Cliff Lee finally posted his first win of the season, and Philadelphia hit three late homers, breaking past New York and stopping a sixgame losing streak. Chase Utley and Carlos Ruiz hit consecutive home runs in the seventh inning as the Phillies rallied from a 2-0 deficit. Ty Wigginton’s two-run homer in the ninth capped the surge. Lee (1-5) had gone a puzzling 13 starts this year without a victory, a big reason the five-time NL East champions have fallen far behind. The lefty ace hadn’t been awful, nor had he been consistently good. Philadelphia

Nationals 9, Giants 4 WASHINGTON — Ryan Zimmerman’s line drive to right-center kept going — and going and going — until it landed in the first row, highlighting another big Fourth of July for the resurgent third baseman, and NL Eastleading Washington beat San Francisco. Zimmerman missed another home run by inches — he had to settle for an RBI double — on a humid day when the ball carried well at Nationals Park. He is 10 for 20 with four hom-

ers and 13 RBIs in six Independence Day games. Undeterred by an 11:08 a.m. holiday start time that followed a late-finishing game, Washington rallied from an early deficit to move 15 games above .500, matching its season-high. San Francisco

parents were glad their daughter wasn’t living on the streets. Debbie will be 18 in four months, but isn’t this still against the law? I can’t believe her parents are so nonchalant about it. My parents live out of state and know nothing about it. Should I tell them?

‘Louie’ may be future of TV comedy The much anticipated return of Charlie Sheen to prime time lived up to expectations. “Anger Management” (8:30 p.m., FX) attracted over 5 million total viewers for the cable network and was easily the most watched program of the night in the 18-49 audience, the demographic of choice for advertisers. Somewhat overlooked in the “Anger” hoopla has been the return of “Louie” (9:30 p.m., FX) for its third season. If television comedy is becoming a hybrid of short, cheaply made “webisodes,” then “Louie” is the best of that new breed. The show has a deceptively deliberate, homemade quality to it. It’s like a grittier version of “Seinfeld,” with a series of short vignettes bookended by star and writer/ creator Louis C.K.’s stand-up appearances at a comedy club. And as on “Seinfeld,” ‘‘Louie” often seems to be about nothing at all. But at the same time, these short collections of disparate scenes can leave audiences with a great deal to ponder. I find myself a late convert to “Louie.” I was initially put off by C.K.’s angry stand-up persona. I’m also not a fan of comedians talking about the “craft” of comedy, or the difficulty of the process. A story in season two about a feud between C.K. and Dane Cook left me with a profound feeling of “who cares?” But compared to Sheen’s delivering punch lines to a laugh track, or George Lopez’s Neolithic pattering as he hosts “Take Me Out” (7 p.m., Fox), “Louie” is nothing short of breathtaking. Its New York locations and hand-held camera work make it much like an independent film or foreign movie. On tonight’s “Louie,” look for Oscar-winning actress Melissa Leo as an unlikely date for the misanthropic comedian. Their bracing banter is well beyond the bounds of traditional sitcoms, and certainly earns tonight’s episode its TV-MA rating.

Tonight’s other highlights

The remaining talent takes on American standards on “Duets” (7 p.m., ABC).

Alex shows her mettle during two difficult procedures on “Saving Hope” (8 p.m., NBC).

The troupe rallies around Rex on the season finale of “Breaking Pointe” (7 p.m., CW). This short-lived series deserves points for letting the dance and its performers emerge on their own, while avoiding fake drama and cliches.

Domestic violence on “Rookie Blue” (9 p.m., ABC).

BIRTHDAYS Actress Katherine Helmond is 83. Singer-musician Robbie Robertson is 69. Julie Nixon Eisenhower is 64. Rock star Huey Lewis is 62. Singer-songwriter Marc Cohn is 53. Actress Edie Falco is 49.

variations on the severity of the punishment. But we agree that if this is illegal in your state, Gary could be in a world of trouble.

Dear Annie: My husband is a chain cigar smoker. He refuses to acknowledge that the secondhand smoke is hazardous to my son and me, not to mention to his own health. Somewhere along the way, he was convinced that cigars aren’t as bad as cigarettes. However, I think the secondhand smoke is heavier and therefore more dangerous to those around him. Any information you can provide on the dangers would be appreciated. — Frustrated Nonsmoker Dear Frustrated: Insist that your husband smoke

outside. According to the American Cancer Society, cigars give off more secondhand smoke than cigarettes because they contain more tobacco and often burn longer. One large cigar can contain as much tobacco as a pack of cigarettes. All tobacco smoke, regardless of the source, is known to cause cancer. Secondhand smoke from cigars contains toxins and carcinogens, just like cigarettes. Regular cigar smokers are four to 10 times more likely to die from cancers of the lung, lip, oral cavity, esophagus and larynx than nonsmokers. For those who inhale, cigar smoke appears to be linked to death from Universal Crossword cancer of the pancreas Edited by Timothy E.
