DOWNTOWN

Merchants asked to fund library garage expansion Added floor would provide 75 parking spaces

By Chad Lawhorn clawhorn@ljworld.com

When it comes to prevailing opinions of downtown Lawrence property owners, there have been two that have stood the test of time: the need for

more public parking and fewer property taxes. Soon, city commissioners may arrange for those two ideas to collide. City Manager David Corliss’

office is proposing that nearly every downtown property owner would pay a special tax to add an extra level and about 75 additional parking spaces

for a public parking garage that will be built next the Lawrence Public Library. “We get very few opportunities to add a significant number of parking spaces

downtown,” Corliss said. “We do it about once a decade. It seems to me that now is the time to ask the question of whether we want to add more parking spaces.”

TOPEKA — Westar Energy is seeking 1,000 customers to participate in a pilot project that utility officials said could provide savings on electric bills. The voluntary program provides what are called

Time of Use rates to encourage customers to shift their electric usage to off-peak periods when demand is lower. “This gives an opportunity for customers who think they can do this to get on board, maybe save some money in the process, and it helps us manage the total load on the

system,” said Hal Jensen, director of customer service and programs at Westar. In the summer, peak energy usage times during weekdays are from 1 p.m. to 8 p.m. Under the Time of Use pilot program, the cost for energy during that period would be approximately 13.5

cents per kilowatt hour, while using energy during off-peak times would be approximately 5.5 cents per kilowatt hour. In winter, the peak energy usage is from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Under the Time of Use program, energy costs at that time would be nearly 8 cents per kilowatt hour while energy

used during the off-peak period would cost nearly 5 cents per kilowatt hour. Jensen said a household that could shift discretionary usage, such as doing laundry, to off-peak periods would benefit from the program. Westar officials said Lawrence customers are Please see WESTAR, page 2A

Lawrence city commissioners are being presented with a new set of scenarios — all of them involving new sales taxes — to fund a multimillion-dollar effort to boost the city’s police force. At their afternoon budget study session today, commissioners will hear staff proposals to fund major improvements to the Lawrence Police Department, which include CITY building a new headquarters COMMISSION building and adding more than 40 new positions to the force. The proposals differ from a $42 million plan presented earlier this summer. None of the new proposals includes property tax increases, and some of the plans call for a smaller police headquarters facility and propose to add new police positions at slower rate. Here’s a look at the latest proposals:

A $30 million police headquarters building and 46 police positions all added over a four-year period. That’s all unchanged from the proposal made earlier this summer. What’s

In the middle of tough budget decisions, the governments of Douglas County and Lawrence are at a bit of a loggerheads. Both the county and the city are discussing their respective proposed budgets for 2013. Those are two independent processes, but many departments and agencies depend on funding from both bodies. In this disagreement, the conflict is over Sheriff Ken McGovern’s request for four additional full-time emergency dispatchers (the people who answer calls to 911 and send out firefighters, medics and police). County Administrator Craig Weinaug included $68,202, or 34 percent of the total cost, in his recommended budget, but City Manager David Corliss didn’t add the city’s proposed $132,393 share. The County Commission heard several funding requests from area agencies in a meeting Monday morning. The commissioners didn’t vote on anything — it’s rare even for them to express opinion on budget matters at this point in the process — but they did ask Commission Chairman Mike Gaughan to

The next question, though, may be tougher: Who ought to pay for the $1.2 million project? Corliss is proposing that downtown property owners would pay a special

46 police positions over 10 years. This scenario would also require a 0.35 percent sales tax for at least 20 years. Staff members also note that all the above mentioned sales taxes could be decreased by 0.1 percent, if the city is willing to use a portion of its share of the countywide 1-cent sales tax to fund the police project. Any new sales tax to pay for the police project would require a public election. City commissioners aren’t scheduled to make any decisions about the police project at their meeting today, but they are expected to give staff members feedback on the latest proposals.

Graveside inurnment with Military Honors will follow at Memorial Park Mausoleum in Lawrence, KS. He died on Monday, July 9, 2012 at Medicalodges of Eudora. Armin was born on October 6, 1919 in rural Douglas County, KS the son of Virgil and Osa (Churchbaugh) Landis. He attended High Prairie Elementary School south of Lawrence. He graduated from Liberty Memorial High School in 1938. He enrolled at KU in 1939 and joined the Navy ROTC program. He graduated in 1943 with a BS in Business. As a Navy ensign he attended Notre Dame University at South Bend, IN and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. His duty assignment in 1944 was on-board the US Navy’s LCI 955. His tour of duty took him throughout the south Pacific and included a number of troop landings. As the war ended he was given command of his own LCI. After leaving the Navy in 1946 his first civilian job was with Trans-World Airlines in Kansas City where he first met his supervisor and future wife, Louise Steele. They

ELIZABETH JULIA GALAS Julia Galas, 92, died on July 8, 2012, at Lawrence Memorial Hospital. A Mass of Christian Burial will be held at St. John the Evangelist Catholic Church, on July 13, at 10 a.m. Visitation with the family will begin at 9 a.m. at the church. Inurnment will follow later in July at St. Casimir’s Catholic Cemetery in Chicago. Julia was born Sept. 11, 1919, in Springfield, Ill., to Elizabeth Bendziuas and Clemence Banaitis, both immigrants from Lithuania. She lived in the Chicago area from 1922 until 1991, when she moved to Lawrence. She is survived by two daughters, Judith Galas (Cindy West) and Peg Sampson (Blaine), both of Lawrence; a granddaughter Amy Owings (Curtis) and great-grandson Gabriel Owings, of Wellington, New Zealand, and two step great-grandchildren, Sabrina and Chandler Owings, Greenwood, Mo.; six nieces and nephews, in Chicago, and one in Detroit, and many great and great-great nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her parents, her sisters Helen McDonald, Clara Banaitis, and Mary Sarpalius and brother Clemens Banaitis, all of Chicago, and sister Anne Lannoo and a niece, both of Detroit. In addition to being a homemaker while raising her children, she also worked in several Chicagoarea factories before retiring in 1991. After her move to Lawrence, she

was active in the Douglas County Senior Center, where she taught chair exercises for many years, and in the social life of Vermont Towers, where she lived for almost eight years. She was a member of St. John the Evangelist Catholic Church. Julia loved rock -‘n-roll music, and especially Elvis Presley; opera; and all things Hawaiian. She also loved live theater and movies, especially Bruce Willis action films. An avid reader, she went through three books a week and read through most of the library’s largeprint editions. All her life, she loved to dance, and when she no longer could, she imagined herself still on the dance floor. Because of her lifelong concern for the well being of animals, Julia hoped that in lieu of flowers, any memorials may be sent to the Lawrence Humane Society in care of WarrenMcElwain Mortuary.

send a letter to Mayor Bob Schumm recommending that city commissioners talk about the proposal in their budget study session at 4 p.m. today. In the letter, Gaughan stresses that the county commissioners and the 911 Advisory Board “feel strongly” that emergency communications “has been understaffed for years.” At the Monday meeting, McGovern said that the four new jobs were an “immediate need critical to public safety.” “It’s not a want; it’s a need,” he said. The sheriff can’t directly request funds from the city, but the two other public safety departments that can — Lawrence-Douglas County Fire Medical and Lawrence police — didn’t mention any dispatchers in their funding requests. Corliss’ recommended budget does include $3 million over three years for the emergency communication center, but that’s for an upgrade to the 911 radio system, not more staff. When it comes to public safety, that’s the higher priority, said Casey Toomay, budget manager for the city.

assessment on their property taxes — for up to 10 years — to pay for the additional parking. That’s the part of the plan downtown property owners will have to do some thinking about. “Does more parking hold appeal? No doubt,” said Mark Swanson, a property owner who runs Hobbs and Spectators in downtown Lawrence. “Does another bang on property taxes hold any appeal? No, but I understand somebody has to pay for it. It is a tough one. I’m scratching my head on this one.” As estimated by the city, property owners along much of Massachusetts, Vermont, New Hampshire and parts of Kentucky streets would pay 47 cents for every square foot of land they own in the downtown district. For a typical 25-foot-wide retail lot on Massachusetts Street, that would amount to about $140 a year for 10 years. Mayor Bob Schumm, who owns property and a operates a restaurant in downtown, supports the proposal. “I’m at all times in favor of finding more parking for downtown,” he said. “On the north end of downtown,

in a good position to take advantage of the program because they already have access to their personal, detailed energy usage information through Westar’s deployment of “smart” meters throughout the city. To sign up for the Time of Use pilot program, call Westar’s customer service center at 1-855-StarOne (1855-782-7663). The program is a three-year pilot that is restricted to 1,000 people per year. Westar will accept applications on a first-come, first-served basis. David Springe, consumer counsel for the Citizens’ Utility Ratepayer Board, said the results of the pilot program should be interesting. However, he added, “But ask yourself, who is going to sign up? People who are pretty motivated to start with and are not extremely dependent on mid-day power. I’m not sure the results will tell us anything on a broader scale,” Springe said. He pointed to a program in Chicago that showed only a small percentage of participants changed their behavior. — Statehouse reporter Scott Rothschild can be reached at 785-423-0668.

“Our resources are limited, and we just don’t have the money,” Toomay said of the budget as it stands, which does increase property taxes slightly. The request for more dispatchers is included in a memo on several, but not all, unfunded requests included in the city meeting info packet, but the City Commission hasn’t discussed it before, at least not publicly. It’s up to the five city commissioners if they talk about it today. Meanwhile, the county commissioners talked about several others issues at their Monday morning meeting. They’ll “digest,” as Commissioner Jim Flory put it, and then give Weinaug their input before reconvening next Monday. The other topics discussed included:

Representatives from the Lawrence Community Shelter asked for $50,000 to help them get through this year, when they plan to open a new location at 3701 Franklin Park Circle. Loring Henderson and Joe Baker also asked for $100,000 in renewable funding to help “serve an increasing volume of needs,” Henderson said. LCS has about $900,000 in its budget for 2013, one-third of which comes from government sources. Baker said he ex-

pected to make it through the year with $40,000 in reserves, at best. The recommended county budget already includes $15,000 for the shelter.

The Lawrence Humane Society asked for $7,000 on top of the $28,000 it gets annually, as well as $15,000 to repair its epoxy floors. Flory asked Humane Society Executive Director Dori Villalon which request was more important. She said fixing the floors was, because smooth floors are healthier for animals.

Sarah Plinsky, assistant county administrator, led the talk about pay raises for county employees. She asked the commissioners to decide on a 1 to 3 percent increase, either in a lump sum — which is cheaper for the county but worse for staff retention and incentives, she said — or in base pay. County Clerk Jamie Shew offered public comment in support of some kind of base pay increase, saying employees had “lived with only 1 percent (increase) for two years, but they read in the paper that projects get funding and they internalize it,” leading to lower morale and a less competitive staff.

we are particularly short of parking. It will be about $12 a month for most property owners. If it creates more opportunity for your commercial district, that’s a pretty good bang for your buck.” City Commissioner Mike Amyx, who owns property and operates a barber shop in downtown, said property owners will have to make a decision about how much they’ll benefit from the new garage. “A whole lot of us are going to have to make a decision about whether it is a reasonable investment to make,” Amyx said. “In today’s time, everybody is trying to make sure they understand where every dime goes. Nobody wants to see a tax increase of any kind.” Downtown property owners do have the option to file a protest petition to stop the special assessment. To do so, more than half the district will have to object to the proposal. Some downtown property owners aren’t sure how much they’ll benefit from a new parking garage that will be located between the Lawrence Public Library and the Douglas County Senior Services building in the 700 block of Vermont Street. “It is not going to help the customer parking issue,”

said Rod Ernst, who owns several downtown buildings and operates Ernst & Son Hardware in downtown. “Customers want to park at your front door.” But Schumm said he thinks the new parking garage will be an attractive place for downtown employees to park, which will free up more spaces closer to Massachusetts Street. Plus, he said during the summer, parking for the swimming pool often spills into spaces that really ought to be utilized by shoppers. As proposed, the city has enough money to build about a 250-space parking garage at the same time it expands the Lawrence Public Library. The city included funding for the garage in the $18 million bond issue approved by voters. The additional $1.2 million that would be funded by the downtown tax would pay to add another level to the garage, which would bring the total spaces up to about 325. Commissioners will discuss the parking garage issue at a budget study session at 4 p.m. today at City Hall. City officials hope to begin construction work on the library and parking garage this fall.

Legislators honored for transportation work TOPEKA — Economic Lifelines on Monday honored several legislators for their support of state transportation funding. “Transportation is critical to the economic future of communities like Lawrence and Topeka, which is why having the support and leadership of these legislators in the Statehouse is so important,” said Julie Lorenz, chief executive of Economic Lifelines, a coalition that pushed for development of the state’s comprehensive transportation plan. Local state senators recognized by the group included Marci Francisco, D-Lawrence, Tom Holland, D-Baldwin City, and Anthony Hensley, DTopeka. Local House members recognized were Barbara Ballard, D-Lawrence, Paul Davis, D-Lawrence, Ramon Gonzalez, R-Perry, Ann Mah, D-Topeka, and Tom Sloan, R-Lawrence. The legislators were honored for voting for funding of the transportation plan and against efforts to take funding away from it. The 10-year transportation plan includes numerous projects in northeast Kansas, including the proposed South Lawrence Trafficway.

Heat causes fish kill in Kanza pond By Shaun Hittle sdhittle@ljworld.com

It’s a case of murder most foul at the Kanza Southwind Nature Preserve, as hundreds of dead carp — and the associated rotting fish smell — line the banks of a pond on the preserve, near 27th Street and the South Lawrence Trafficway in southwest Lawrence. “It’s a smelly affair,” said Chuck

Bever, regional fisheries supervisor with the Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks and Tourism. But it’s a whodunit easily solved, Bever said. “Generally speaking, they’re heat-related,” Bever said, explaining that the warm temperatures suck oxygen from the water, leaving little for fish. Add in decaying plant material that isn’t surviving the heat, which in turn sucks out more oxygen, and it

Lawrence student wins IIYM piano competition By Meagan Thomas mthomas@ljworld.com

Fourteen-year-old Chaeyoung Park has spent most of her summer playing the piano. Since school finished at the end of May, the soon-to-be sophomore at Bishop Seabury Academy has practiced nine hours a day to prepare for the International Institute for Young Musicians 2012 International Piano Competition. The annual competition is an international contest open to pianists ages 12-19. The contestants first submitted an audition DVD, and from the 35 submissions, 12 semifinalists were chosen. The semifinalists competed Saturday, each playing for 25 minutes, and then six finalists were selected. On Monday night the finalists each played for 35 minutes.

Nick Krug/Journal-World File Photo

CHAEYOUNG PARK, 14, LAWRENCE, earned first place in the 2012 International Piano Competition Finals, part of the International Institute for Young Musicians, on Monday. Park, pictured here in 2011, was also a finalist last year. The contest was judged by five piano professionals from around the world, including Steven Spooner, associate professor of piano at Kansas University. Following the competition, the students, as well

as other international pianists, attend a piano camp. The camp is taught by both KU faculty as well as international piano experts. All 65 students had to apply to attend the camp. “These are very dedicated students,” Charles Hung, IIYM advisory committee member, said. “They spend their spare time on the piano; for fun, they’re on the piano.” Park isn’t new to IIYM or its annual piano competition. In 2011, Park was the youngest pianist to make both the semifinals and finals, and this year she competed in the finals with hopes of winning the $8,000 first place prize. “Overall it was good,” Park said. “I could’ve done better, but I feel like it was still good.” Park may feel like she could’ve done better, but

she still outplayed the five other pianists in the competition, not only taking first place but also winning the vote for audience favorite, which carries another $1,000 prize. Second place, which has a prize of $5,000, was awarded to Evan Lin, and third place, along with $3,000, went to Rieko Tsuchida. The other three finalists, Alice Zhu, Evelyn Mo and Trenton Takaki, will receive finalist prizes of $500 each. The prize money and trophies will be awarded to the finalists at the Winners Concert at 3 p.m. Saturday in the Lied Center Pavilion. Admission is $10, and children ages 11 and younger get in for free. — Staff intern Meagan Thomas can be reached at 832-6342.

Board OKs calendar with weekday graduations By Andy Hyland ahyland@ljworld.com

Members of the Lawrence school board approved an academic calendar for the 2013-14 school year on Monday that placed high school graduations on a Tuesday and Wednesday. The graduations will also be on weekdays for the upcoming school year. Board member Shannon Kimball said she had heard some complaints from parents about having graduation ceremonies in the middle of the week.

“I’m a little concerned about approving that change for the following year until we’ve had a chance to see how it works,” Kimball said. Rick Doll, superintendent, said if the graduations in the middle of the week “just flat don’t work,” and the community decides it doesn’t like them, there would still be time to change them for 2013-14. Jeanne Fridell, principal of Woodlawn School, served as a co-chairwoman for the calendar committee. She said the committee moved the graduations be-

cause Kansas University’s May 18, 2014, commencement ceremony conflicted with a rain date for the high school graduations. Lawrence High School’s graduation ceremony would be on Tuesday, May 20, and Free State’s ceremony would be on Wednesday, May 21. The calendar committee also moved the district’s inclement weather day to April 18 to coincide with the KU Relays. If the district does not have a snow day, students would not attend classes on that day.

department $2 million. Thomas Blubaugh pleaded guilty last year to conspiracy to defraud the United States through wire fraud, tax obstruction and interstate transportation of stolen property. He is seeking to reduce his 46-month prison sentence to 33 months. Blubaugh claims the court improperly considered the value of so-called deadwood tickets he had hidden in a storage facility. He also contends he had ineffective counsel and says he was promised probation in return for helping the government. Prosecutors have urged the court to deny the request and enforce a plea agreement that prohibits Blubaugh from appealing his conviction and sentence. The government also argued against Blubaugh’s claim that he got a longer sentence than most other defendants, calling him the “right hand helper to his wife who is arguably the most culpable and placed the ball in play that started this criminal enterprise.” Belot took over the case from U.S. District Judge Wesley Brown, who sentenced Blubaugh just months before he died. Belot said in a one-

page order that unless the motion and records of the case conclusively show a defendant is entitled to no relief, he is entitled to a prompt hearing. The former ticket consultant claims the court erred in allowing the government to use information he provided, the so-called deadwood tickets, to help determine the sentence recommended for him. The government, however, contends authorities already knew about the tickets. Assistant U.S. Attorney Richard Hathaway

cited a May 2010 investigative report by university, which said Charlette Blubaugh told other defendants that basketball ticket sales could not be reconciled and those records should be moved to the football stadium. The records would then be destroyed, and conspirators would blame their loss on construction at the stadium. Prosecutors said the only significant revelation from Thomas Blubaugh was that the tickets had been stored in a private storage facility instead of being destroyed.

LAW ENFORCEMENT REPORT

• Jefferson County Sheriff’s officers Monday were still investigating an incident from Saturday in which a 49-yearold Oskaloosa man was run over with a vehicle driven by a 24-year-old woman early Saturday morning in the 1100 block of Union Street in Oskaloosa. Capt. Randy Carreno said about 4 a.m. Saturday officers believe the woman backed out the vehicle and ran over the man as she was trying to drive her boyfriend away from a physical altercation involving three of her brothers. Investigators believe the woman was not aware she had struck the man and pulled forward, running over him again. The 49-year-old man was trying to intervene in the dis-

turbance, and he was injured and taken to a Topeka-area hospital, Carreno said. A Stormont-Vail Regional Health Center spokeswoman said Monday evening the man was treated and released. Carreno said the woman had left the scene and was later arrested on a DUI charge, but officers on Monday were still trying to determine circumstances surrounding the incident. • Ottawa police on Sunday arrested a Lawrence man on dozens of counts related to theft of a debit and credit card from an acquaintance in Franklin County. The suspect is accused of using the card at multiple locations in Ottawa and elsewhere over several weeks, said Capt. Adam Weingartner, an Ottawa police spokesman.

Man accused of explosives use

Police arrested a 20-year-old Lawrence man, Dakota Jackson Kunkle, Sunday morning on suspicion of criminal use of explosives at an apartment in the 700 block of West 25th Street. Douglas County prosecutors on Monday filed two counts of criminal use of an explosive against Kunkle. In one of the counts, prosecutors accuse him of placing a public safety officer “at risk to defuse” it. The second count is related to an alleged incident on July 4, 2011, according to the charges. Kim Murphree, a Lawrence police spokeswoman, said officers were called about 11:30 p.m. Saturday to assist firefighters with items found at the scene during a fire call. Other officers and firefighters had been sent to the same residence an hour earlier to a report of gunfire. Police later determined the sounds involved firework ignition powder. According to court records, the Leavenworth Fire Department responded, and the agency has a bomb squad. “An investigation determined the occupants of the residence had been making homemade explosives with at least one possible detonation inside the residence,” Murphree said. A judge Monday set Kunkle’s bond at $20,000 and scheduled his next hearing for Wednesday.

The event is open to the public. Heartland provides primary care for those who are uninsured and those who have Medicaid, Medicare or private insurance. Its fees are based on a person’s ability to pay. In June, HHS announced that Heartland had been designated a Federally Qualified Health Center, or FQHC, which means it will receive a renewable annual grant award of $650,000. It also will receive enhanced Medicaid and Medicare reimbursement and at-cost prescription drug pricing.

KBA panel backs Tough ID laws may funding to support deter many voters research on virus By Mike Baker

By Andy Hyland

Associated Press

ahyland@ljworld.com

When Edward and Mary Weidenbener went to vote in Indiana’s primary in May, they didn’t realize that state law required them to bring government photo IDs such as a driver’s license or passport. The husband and wife, both approaching 90 years old, had to use a temporary ballot that would be verified later, even though they knew the people working the polling site that day. Unaware that Indiana law obligated them to follow up with the county election board, the Weidenbeners ultimately had their votes rejected — news to them until informed recently by an Associated Press reporter. Edward Weidenbener, a World War II veteran who had voted for Mitt Romney in the Republican presidential contest, said he was surprised by the rules and the consequences. “A lot of people don’t have a photo ID. They’ll be automatically disenfranchised,” he said.

OLATHE — The Kansas Bioscience Authority’s Investment Committee on Monday supported an effort that would provide more than $868,000 to help support new research at Kansas State University’s future National Bio and Agro-Defense Facility. The funds would support a project studying Schmallenberg virus, said Tony Simpson, the KBA’s director of commercialization for bioenergy. “I think (the project) really fits in, and I think it makes a real selling point for the need for NBAF in Kansas,” said Dan Watkins, a Lawrence attorney and investment committee member. The virus is now only found in Europe, having been first discovered in September 2011, Simpson said. It infects sheep, goats and cattle, and leads to decreased milk production, fever, general malaise, and malformation and stillbirth of a mother’s young. Biting insects are believed to spread the disease from animal to animal, and it is not known to spread to humans, Simpson said. There is no known treatment, and current diagnostic tools don’t differentiate among animals infected with the disease and animals who have been effectively vaccinated from the disease, Simpson said. The research project, which would involve a collaboration among Kansas State, the federal Agriculture Department and other agencies, would focus on finding a faster diagnosis and rapid development of a better vaccine. The funds would come out of a previous $35 million commitment that the state-supported KBA made to NBAF to help expedite the movement of research projects to Manhattan from the federal government’s Plum Island Animal Disease Center in New York. All the committee’s actions are still subject to approval from the KBA’s full board of directors, which meets July 23-24. The committee voted to recommend approval for two other grants:

A $400,000 grant to Parnell, an Australian veterinary pharmaceutical company, contingent

Tossed votes As more states put in place strict voter ID rules, an AP review of temporary ballots from Indiana and Georgia, which first adopted the most stringent standards, found that more than 1,200 such votes were tossed during the 2008 general election. During sparsely attended primaries this year in Georgia, Indiana and Tennessee, the states implementing the toughest laws, hundreds more ballots were blocked. The numbers suggest that the legitimate votes rejected by the laws are far more numerous than are the cases of fraud that advocates of the rules say they are trying to prevent. Thousands more votes could be in jeopardy for this November, when more states with larger populations are looking to have similar rules in place. More than two dozen states have some form of ID requirement, and 11 of those passed new rules over the past two years largely at the urging of Republicans who say they want to prevent fraud. Democrats and votingrights groups fear that ID laws could suppress votes among people who may not typically have a driver’s license, and disproportionately affect the elderly, poor and minorities. While the number of votes is a small percentage of the overall

ELECTION OFFICIALS CHECK the photo identification card of a voter in Cimarron, Kan., in this Jan. 10 photo. As more states put in place strict voter ID rules, an AP review of temporary ballots from Indiana and Georgia, which first adopted the most stringent standards, found that more than 1,200 such votes were tossed during the 2008 general election. total, they have the potential to sway a close election. Remember that the 2000 presidential race was decided by a 537-vote margin in Florida. A Republican leader in Pennsylvania said recently that the state’s new ID law would allow Romney to win the state over President Barack Obama.

Election fraud Supporters of the laws cite anecdotal cases of fraud as a reason that states need to do more to secure elections, but fraud appears to be rare. As part of its effort to build support for voter ID laws, the Republican National Lawyers Association last year published a report that identified some 400 election fraud prosecutions over a decade across the entire country. That’s not even one per state per year. ID laws would not have prevented many of those cases because they involved vote-buying schemes in local elections or people who falsified voter registrations. Election administrators and academics who monitor the issue said in-person fraud is rare because someone would have to impersonate a registered voter and risk arrest. A 2008 Supreme Court case drew detailed briefs from the federal government, 10 states and other groups that identified only nine potential impersonation cases over the span of several years, according to a tally by the Brennan Center at New York University.

on the company locating its North American headquarters in Kansas, in the Kansas City metropolitan area. The grant would help support the company’s hiring of 14 new employees.

A $750,000 grant to Bayer Health Care, of Shawnee. The grant would support the expansion of the company’s existing North American headquarters in Shawnee and would support the hiring of 58 new people over three years at an average salary of $83,000. — Higher education reporter Andy Hyland can be reached at 832-6388.

has named Overland Park attorney Nancy Anstaett, retired Kansas Court of Appeals judge J. Patrick Brazil and Wichita attorney Mikel Stout to hear the complaint filed by Keen Umbehr in May against state disciplinary administrator Stanton Hazlett, of Lawrence.

Umbehr accuses Hazlett of falsely telling him that an ethics review panel made a finding of probable cause against Umbehr in a dispute with the Kansas Department of Corrections. Umbehr was cleared of any wrongdoing. Hazlett denies any misconduct and says he welcomes an investigation.

Kansas to review acquisition of contractor

PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA calls on Congress to pass a temporary, one-year extension of the Bush-era tax cuts for people who make less than $250,000 a year, during a statement in the East Room of the White House in Washington on Monday.

Obama turns election focus to taxes By Julie Pace and Kasie Hunt Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Facing sagging jobs numbers, President Barack Obama sought to recast the November election as a fight over tax fairness on Monday, urging tax cut extensions for all families earning less than $250,000 but denying them to households making more than that. The president’s pitch was aimed at painting Republican rival Mitt Romney as a protector of the rich at a time of economic unease, as Democrats intensify efforts to raise questions about the Romney’s own wealth and offshore bank accounts. Romney supports extending the federal tax cuts, first signed by George W. Bush, for all income earners. Obama said if Congress passes a one-year extension for those making less than $250,000, voters can use the November election to decide the fate of the cuts for higher income earners. “My opponent will fight to keep them in place. I will fight to end them,” said Obama, flanked by a dozen people the White House said would benefit from the tax cut extension. The president has long supported ending the Bushera tax cuts for those making more than $250,000. The White House and the president’s re-election team are reviving his arguments now as a way to suggest that the push by Romney and congressional Republicans for an acrossthe-board extension of the tax cuts could put America’s middle class at risk. The president’s sudden focus on the tax fairness debate was also an attempt to change the election subject after yet another lackluster jobs report. New numbers released Friday showed the nation’s unemployment rate stuck at 8.2 percent, giving Romney fresh grounds to attack Obama as unfit to steer the U.S. economy.

Romney bests Obama donations WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama on Monday said he raised $71 million in June for his re-election campaign, after Republican Romney candidate Mitt Romney reported $106 million during the same period. It was the second consecutive month that Romney collected more cash and underscores the challenge for Obama ahead of November. The grim news for Obama came as his campaign officials have publicly worried they were on track to lose the money race.

TOPEKA — Kansas will review plans announced Monday by the nation’s second-largest health insurance company to buy another firm recently awarded a contract to help manage the state’s Medicaid program. WellPoint Inc., based in Indianapolis, said it will acquire Amerigroup Corp., headquartered in Virginia Beach, Va., for about $4.46 billion. WellPoint expects to close the transaction by the end of March 2013 if Amerigroup stockholders approve. The purchase comes as Gov. Sam Brownback’s administration is overhauling the state’s $2.9 billiona-year Medicaid program, which provides health

coverage to the poor, disabled and elderly. The state expects to turn the program’s management over to three private companies in January. The state awarded one of its contracts two weeks ago to an Amerigroup subsidiary, Amerigroup Kansas Inc. Because the subsidiary is a Kansas company, the WellPoint acquisition must be reviewed by Insurance Commissioner Sandy Praeger’s office, spokesman Bob Hanson said. Hanson said that once WellPoint files an application with Praeger’s office, a review should take about two months. He said Kansas is among 15 states that must review the transaction.

Crisis looms in Egypt over legislature’s fate CAIRO — A new showdown loomed in Egypt on Monday as the country’s highest court stood by its ruling that dissolved parliament last month, challenging the new Islamist president’s plans to reconvene the lower chamber in defiance of the military. If he goes ahead, Mohammed Morsi would be taking a dramatic step away from the outreach that characterized his first days in office. It’s a tough fight, though, and the president could lose it along with more of his already diminished powers. The military, which handed power to Morsi on June 30 after ruling the country for 16 months, delivered a thinly veiled warning to the presi-

dent, saying it would continue to support the country’s “legitimacy, constitution and law” — language that means it will not stand by and watch the rulings of the country’s top court ignored or breached. At the same time, the Supreme Constitutional Court sent out a clear signal that it will not bow to Morsi’s wish, saying in a statement after an emergency meeting on Monday that its June 14 ruling to invalidate the Islamist-dominated parliament was final and binding. Morsi, through his spokesman Yasser Ali, insisted his decision to reconvene the 508-seat chamber today was an “assertion of the popular will.”

Prepare to vote Local voters need to do a little extra work this year to be sure they are ready to cast their ballots.

N

ew district lines and new voting regulations mean that voters planning to participate in upcoming elections need to make some additional preparation. Those who want to vote in the Aug. 7 primary have until July 17 to register. That can be accomplished by visiting the Douglas County Clerk’s office in the courthouse, 1100 Mass., or online through the Kansas Department of Revenue. People registering online must have a valid Kansas driver’s license or state-issued identification card. Voters must show a valid photo ID before casting their ballots this year. State election officials are encouraging voters with any questions to confirm their registration status now, before the books close next Tuesday. Even if their registration still is valid, many voters will be in different U.S. House and Kansas legislative districts. The districts redrawn only about a month ago by a panel of federal judges are significantly different from the previous districts. All of Douglas County now is in the 2nd Congressional District, and many changes were made in Kansas House and Senate districts. Some voters also will find that their polling places have changed since the last election. Maps showing the new precinct lines and legislative districts are available on the Douglas County Clerk’s website. Even if you think you know what races will be on your ballot on Aug. 7, it would be worth a look to confirm what districts you currently live in. If you have questions, it’s worth a phone call to get the answers. Because of the late redistricting action and the scramble to field candidates in the newly drawn districts, the Aug. 7 ballot will include more than the usual number of primary contests. All three Kansas Senate seats that cover Douglas County will have contested races on the Republican ballot — although one candidate in the 2nd Senate District has suspended his campaign and is supporting the other Republican in the race. There also is a three-way race for the Democratic nomination for the state’s 2nd District seat in the U.S. Congress. Redistricting, which drew a number of incumbent legislators out of their existing districts, guarantees there will be some new faces in the Kansas Legislature next January. It’s an opportunity for both the candidates and the voters. Make sure you’re registered and know which candidates will be on your ballot.

Telstar anniversary spurs reflection ANDOVER, MAINE — It was the largest air-inflated structure in the world, 161 feet high and 210 feet wide, constructed of polyester and synthetic rubber. Inside the balloon was a 177-foot-long horn-shaped antenna that weighed 380 tons. Not a trace of it remains. But here in a tiny rural town nestled in a valley that provided natural shielding from radio interference, a revolution was born 50 years ago today. That revolution doesn’t seem remarkable today, but a half-century ago the notion of sending a television signal from North America to Europe shook the world. A generation remembers the first transmitted image vividly — a fuzzy shot of an American flag fluttering in a Maine village — but millions more have been affected by the telecasts that have become unremarkable as a result of what happened here — by the televised coverage of Olympic violence, royal weddings, airplane hijackings, the fall of Hosni Mubarak and Moammar Gadhafi.

Maine town changed Settled in 1789, the year the Constitution took effect, Andover for nearly two centuries was a tranquil outpost near the Canadian and New Hampshire borders, midway between Boston and Montreal but resolutely nowhere. Its citizens ran small farms and worked in the forests, always showing themselves, as a resolution by the state legislature noted, as “very resilient, resourceful and independent.” But people didn’t move too quickly here, toward the future or anyplace else; if you drove your horse over the covered bridge faster than a walk, you were vulnerable to a $3 fine. Until Telstar — a 3-footdiameter sphere weighing 170 pounds with 1,064 transistors and 1,464 diodes — was sent aloft by a Boeing Thor Delta booster that split the skies and opened the age

Today’s communications-driven world was unimaginable in Telstar’s time, but it would have been unattainable without it.” of satellite communications. The iconic black-and-white image was so stunning a breakthrough that President John F. Kennedy predicted it would “throw open to us the vision of an era of international communications.” Now the future has left Andover behind, though Verizon Wireless still runs a satellite communications operation amid the white pine, elm and birch copse that once changed the Earth. A few abandoned foundations remain at the site, which you access by passing a sign with the words painted out, but no physical evidence hints that an era began here that rendered undersea cable and radio transmissions relics of a fast-receding past. “No one incident in history has meant as much to the Town of Andover,” the Rumford Falls Times wrote in 1962, “as has the decision of the American Telegraph and Telephone Co. to erect the satellite ground station in that town.” Only memories remain. Even Telstar High School is somewhere else, in Bethel, down Route 5, more than a half-hour south. “Some people were apprehensive,” recalls Trudy Akers, secretary of the Andover Historical Society. “They

were worried that if there was a war the Russians would bomb us. But it was great for a small town. Lots of new people moved in. Some of them stayed for many years. It was a window on the world for all of us here.”

Future of communications Telstar I operated for less than a year — eventually its command decoders wouldn’t accept instructions from Andover — and it was followed by a second Telstar, 4 1/2 pounds heavier, positioned farther out in space and better situated for communications with Asia. But the telephone call between AT&T’s chairman and Vice President Lyndon Johnson 15 hours after blastoff, followed by the shaky image of the flag, carved a new future in communications. “Very-high-frequency radio and TV stations, which are limited to line-of-sight range, suddenly saw their future reach out beyond the horizon, around the curve of the Earth,” bellowed Time magazine. Today’s communicationsdriven world was unimaginable in Telstar’s time, but it would have been unattainable without it. “Telstar opened up an area of activity that has transformed the world,” says John M. Logsdon of George Washington University, perhaps the leading historian of the space program. “It has made instantaneous global communication possible. Before Telstar and what followed Telstar, you had to book ahead to make an international telephone call. There was very limited capability and it was very expensive. Now we have Skype.” For all its achievements, Telstar was a product of the wrong technology. It depended on movable antennae — Andover’s rotated every which way to capture Telstar’s signals — and a truly global network based on the Telstar model would have

Giant leap forward But Telstar was a giant leap forward, one of the wonders of the world, or at least of that world. “Telstar involved problems of a scope and magnitude far beyond any we had faced (before),” according to the late John R. Pierce, a Bell Labs engineer and author who wrote a history of Telstar. “The transistor and the traveling-wave tube were key components, but they had to survive a rocket launch and survive for a long time in space.” Those elements seem antiquarian today, when the word “transistor” seldom passes the lips, and that achievement seems modest given last summer’s conclusion of the Space Shuttle era. While Telstar was a precursor to dramatic and significant breakthroughs in telecommunications, it also spawned an important cultural marker — the Tornados’ hit instrumental “Telstar,” which remains familiar and irritating, and was the first single by a British group to reach No. 1 on both the American and British pop charts. Like the satellite whose bleeps it was intended to imitate, the song paved the way for even greater cultural developments. The second single by a British group to achieve those ratings was called “I Want to Hold Your Hand.” — David M. Shribman is executive editor of the Pittsburgh PostGazette.

From the Lawrence Daily Journal-World for July 10, 1912: “The secYEARS ond wing of the AGO new administration IN 1912 building at the University is to be built soon. The board of regents at their last meeting asked for bids for the work and will award the contract some time soon. This is to be the central portion of the building. According to the plans the completed building will be composed of three separate wings. The first is now completed, and the third is to be just like it, and built west of the present wing.”

required a long string of satellites, almost certainly at a higher orbit. That’s because in the early days of satellite communications, scientists didn’t think they could launch geosynchronous satellites, manmade space objects whose orbital period and pattern matched that of Earth, keeping them stationary over a particular location. It turned out that that ability was only a few years off.

Government costs To the editor: A recent study showed that it costs a private employer around $28/hour on average for each employee and around $42/hour for the government (not counting federal employees). Approximately one-third of this is for benefit packages. Wisconsin, San Diego and San Jose have voted in overwhelming numbers to change the entitlement culture of public employee unions after seeing their benefit costs rise three to five times and finding that their budgets could no longer support the basic infrastructure needs of their cities. Stockton, Calif., files for bankruptcy. They realized that retiring at age 50 (with 90 percent of your last salary), paying 1 percent into your retirement fund and contributing a fraction of the costs of your health care are not sustainable work practices. Kansans know that KPERS has a multi-billion dollar shortfall. Yet, over the past six years, the fastest growing segment of the Kansas economy was government. Some folks are upset with what they see as the undue influence that the Koch brothers may have on the electoral process, but they fail to

recognize the same level of influence that comes from groups like the Service Employees International Union, who back candidates, and then extract lucrative contracts from the very politicians they helped elect (buy). Where do our local public entities stand with the ever-burgeoning costs of public employees? Are they providing benefits above that of the private employer? If the private sector can hire qualified personnel and keep them at rates that are two-thirds of those in the public sector while employees pay substantially more into their retirement and health-care packages, why can’t government agencies? Ken Meyer, Lawrence

Bus debacle To the editor: All taxpaying residents must demand that City Hall and high-salaried city employees cease to rob our public treasury in the name of special interest and against the majority opinion of the electorate. The T bus is a prime example of City Hall’s loose fiscal policy that results in higher taxes.

The Republic of Lawrence obtained three diesel/electric hybrid buses through the 2009 so-called federal stimulus bill at a cost of $1.8 million. This bill was financed with new debt. Therefore, our children and grandchildren will be left with our generation’s debts long after the buses have been salvaged for scrap metal. Our T bus operating cost per passenger mile is already the most inefficient on planet Earth. Our city manager is now proposing a $250,000 budget expense to study the merits of extended hours for the T bus. Why do we need a city manager? The T bus should be allowed to suffer the same fate as Tyrannosaurus rex: extinction. No one ever rode T rex and very few ride the T bus. The electorate is paying an enormous price for allowing incumbents to remain in office. The one and only solution coming out of City Hall is, “We will have to raise taxes.” This is not leadership but rather a dereliction of fiduciary responsibility. Each of us has a duty to participate in the political process or we face the consequences of being ruled by our inferiors. J. Joe Herynk, Lawrence

Dynamic duo big All-Star draw Tom Keegan tkeegan@ljworld.com

Traylor crucial newbie Thomas Robinson doesn’t become the nation’s only first-team All-American and finish second in the Player of the Year voting without having the perfect complement to him doing all the things that brought out the best in him. Jeff Withey’s remarkable shot-blocking ability enabled Robinson to play less aggressively on defense to stay out of foul trouble and conserve energy for crashing the glass and scoring. Withey’s ability to catch the ball and either throw down dunks or knock down free throws gave foes reason not to run the entire defense at Robinson. Withey enabled Robinson to be what he was, the second-best college basketball player in the nation. Now someone needs to emerge as the perfect complement to Withey to enable him to be who he is, a great shot-blocker and a potential go-to scorer, a 7-footer blessed with a soft touch and deft footwork. Strange as it sounds considering how overmatched he looked at times as recently as his sophomore year, he has developed into a darkhorse candidate for firstteam All-American honors, a guy with a good shot at becoming an NBA lottery pick. But he won’t get there without relentless help in the paint. A banger Withey is not, so the guy playing alongside him needs to be a physical presence, and he needs to be a swift athlete who can sky for boards and run the floor like a guard in both directions. Perry Ellis has so much talent, such a good aptitude, he’ll find a way onto the court for a ton of minutes as a freshman, but he doesn’t qualify as the perfect complement to Withey in terms of a basketball bodyguard. Wiry Kevin Young’s energy comes in handy off the bench. Zach Peters, a high school football player, has the profile, but he’s a freshman. Landen Lucas plays with confidence and aggressiveness, but he’ll likely need time to develop. Jamari Traylor, a 6-foot-8, 215-pound red-shirt freshman from Chicago, hits the boards and anybody in his way hard. He’s explosive, runs the floor well and has the look of a guy who will play with a mean streak. Practices are closed to the media, so his game remains a mystery, but those who played against him and with him in practice raved about his explosiveness and strength. Traylor and Ben McLemore, the 6-5, 185 shooting guard from St. Louis, were restricted by the NCAA to practicing and even at that just for the second semester because of academic concerns. McLemore has generated more excitement because he was rated much higher in high school (34th, compared to 141st by Rivals.com) and mixes fancy jams with a feathery three-point touch. But it’s conceivable Traylor could have the biggest impact of the eight newcomers, even though five of the others were ranked higher in their high school classes than Traylor was in his.

KANSAS CITY, MO. (AP) — Bryce Harper remembered back to Oct. 27, when just 414 fans were at Scottsdale Stadium to watch his Scorpions play the Mesa Solar Sox in the Arizona Fall League. Down 7-5, Harper vowed to teammate Brandon Crawford to hit a game-winning home run. “I’ll drop a bomb and walk off the field, tell them we own this place,” Harper said.

“I promise you I’m going to hit a jack right here. I swear on everything.” “Yeah, OK,” Mike Trout told him in disbelief. Trout led off with a single, Scottsdale got another hit with one out, and Harper followed with a home run to right-center off Jeff Inman. “Everybody ran inside the clubhouse,” Harper said. “It was a great moment.” Still tied together, base-

ball’s youthful dynamic duo will be watched by millions tonight as the All-Star game returns to Kansas City and beautiful Kauffman Stadium for the first time since 1973. Just 19, Harper is the youngest position player in All-Star history and a key part of the Washington Nationals’ emergence as a firstplace team. Trout, a year older, is leading the American League in hitting and helping

the Los Angeles Angels turn around their season after a sloppy start. Coincidentally, both came up to the majors leagues on April 28, Harper for his debut and Trout for his return following a pair of stints last year. They are among a record five rookie All-Stars, joined by Texas pitcher Yu Darvish, Oakland closer

Staff picks for ultimate scramble J-W Staff Reports

From Tiger’s resurgence on the PGA Tour to the heatsoaked rounds of local golfers at Alvamar, Eagle Bend and Lawrence Country Club, golf often dominates so many summertime conversations in Lawrence. The past couple of weeks have added to the list of topics, as Kansas University announced Jamie Bermel as its new men’s golf coach, and former Jayhawk Conrad Roberts won his sixth Lawrence Amateur Golf Association city championship in the past seven seasons last weekend. The only thing that prevented the Welshman from winning during that stretch

was a scheduling snafu that forced him to miss last year’s event. But forget about the bigtime events for a minute. For the rest of us, one of the most popular events of the summer golf season is the scramble. Four guys get together for a few laughs, a couple of beverages and a fun round. It’s the perfect set-up for any golfer, from awful to average, and it allows for players of all skill levels to compete on an even playing field. Such a setting is the scene for the fourth installment of our summer series, which looks back at some of the biggest and best names to come through KU. It surely won’t take long to

see which of us was going for the win and which was looking to have a good time with good company when putting together our teams.

ity and potential to act like a clown. I think we’d have a good shot to win, and I know we’d have a round full of laughs.

Matt Tait Conrad Roberts — Conrad and I go way back, so I’ve had the pleasure to play golf with him dozens of times. Each time, I play better just by being out there with him. Gary Woodland — If it’s a scramble, I’m guessing we’ll use his tee shot a lot. Kit Grove — Kit’s exactly the kind of guy you want on your squad when you’re looking to have a fun round. Chris Thompson — He mixes well with the other three, both in terms of golf abil-

Andrew Hartsock Marilynn Smith — The Topeka native — nicknamed “Miss Personality” — was one of the 13 founders of the LPGA and won 21 events on tour, including two majors. Surely the Hall of Famer could help carry my sorry behind. Roy Williams — Everybody knows golf is Williams’ second love. No, wait, Kansas is his second love, behind North Carolina. No, wait, Carolina is second behind wife Wanda. Please see SCRAMBLE, page 3B

Pistorius a pioneer at Olympics LONDON (AP) — Is manmade material superior to muscle? Are those blades better than real legs? Oscar Pistorius, the doubleamputee runner, is taking the issue of disabled vs. able-bodied competition into new territory as he prepares for the London Olympics. His inclusion on South Africa’s team clears the way for him to become the first amputee runner to compete in the Olympics. And because it’s the sporting world’s biggest stage, his participation is likely to fire up the long-running debate over whether his flexible, carbonfiber blades give him an unfair advantage. Pistorius, 25, runs on Cheetah Flex-Foot blades, J-shaped limbs that are 16 inches (41 centimeters) long and weigh a little over a pound each. Pistorius, whose lower legs were amputated when he was a baby after he was born without the fibula bones in his shins, has a personal best in the 400 meters of 45.07 seconds — almost two seconds off Michael Johnson’s world record — and ran a 45.20 this year, both inside the top Olympic qualifying time. Never before has a disabled person been such a threat to the able-bodied in a sports event. “There are tens of thousands of people with the same pros-

IN THIS FILE PHOTO FROM JULY 7, SOUTH AFRICA’S OSCAR PISTORIUS COMPETES during the 400-meter men’s event at the KBC Night of Athletics in Heusden, Belgium. The double amputee is going to the London 2012 Olympics, re-igniting the fierce debate over the carbon fiber blades he runs on and his right to compete alongside able-bodied athletes. thetics I use, but there’s no one running the same times,� Pistorius wrote in a column in a British newspaper last week after he was chosen to run both the individual 400 meters and the 4x400 relay in London. “You’ll always get people who have their opinions on whether I

should be competing in London, but they can’t explain my times.� The Blade Runner doesn’t just want to show up at the London Games, flash his photogenic smile and wave, and then retire graciously and let the top runners get on with it. Pistorius wants to be on the track among the eight finest runners in the world when the gold medal is decided on Aug. 6. “It’s a personal dream of his to run in the final at the Olympic Games,� Pistorius’ coach for all his career, Ampie Louw, told The Associated Press. “It’s not qualifying only.� Pistorius told the AP: “My goals are just to be able to look back at my career and know that I didn’t let my talent go to waste. I’m just trying to prove to myself that I can be the best that I want to be.� Sports engineer David James, a senior lecturer at England’s Sheffield Hallam University, disagrees with Pistorius’ inclusion in the Olympics on both scientific and ethical grounds. “Sport is hard-nosed and brutal and bloody and has no place for sob stories. People want Oscar to run and do well. However, will they think the same if he wins?� James said. “I predict a backlash if he wins anything. They will attribute that performance to the blades. I think

there would be real implications if he won.� Pistorius’ case was settled — legally anyway — in 2008 when sports’ highest court lifted the ban from able-bodied events imposed on him by the International Association of Athletics Federations. The Court of Arbitration for Sport said that Pistorius probably gets some advantages from the springy, curved blades, but also suffers some disadvantages, and they even out in the end. Hugh Herr, an associate professor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and an expert in biomechanics and bionics who has conducted studies on Pistorius, agreed with the decision to reinstate Pistorius, saying there is no evidence the blades give Pistorius an edge. In terms of the energy he uses and the way he tires, there is, crucially, no difference, Herr said. Pistorius is probably at a disadvantage because he cannot hit the ground as hard as other athletes, the professor said. Sports ethicist and philosopher Ivo van Hilvoorde of Free University in Amsterdam said the South African athlete represents the shifting boundaries between able and disabled sport. “We are used to thinking of disabled as less,� Van Hilvoorde said, “but it could be the other way round. Oscar Pistorius is a nice example of this.�

Talk of Howard to Nets picks up By Al Iannazzone Newsday

LAS VEGAS — Deron Williams and Dwight Howard first started talking about joining forces — in Orlando — when they were Olympic teammates in 2008. Four years later, it appears closer to becoming a reality, but in Brooklyn. The Nets and Magic were engaged in talks on a complicated deal that could include four teams, at least a dozen players, several draft picks and ultimately Howard ending up in Brooklyn. Williams likes the sound of that and the Nets’ fu- Howard ture if the trade pans out. “I think we’ll be good,� Williams said after the 2012 Olympic team practiced Monday. “I think we’ll be one of the top teams in the Williams East for sure, top teams in the NBA.� If the Nets can complete this complex deal that would feature Brook Lopez going to Orlando and Kris Humphries to Cleveland in sign-and-trades, they would have their own Big Three of Williams, Howard and Joe Johnson to match superteams like Miami. In one reported trade scenario, the Nets also would receive Jason Richardson and Earl Clark from the Magic and send Damion James, Shelden Williams and Armon Johnson to Orlando. They were looking for a fourth team to take MarShon Brooks. Although the talks seemed to be picking up steam, Williams tempered his enthusiasm. But it’s clear he hopes it goes through. He said potentially building a championship-caliber team in Brooklyn is what’s appealing to both of them. Williams has envisioned many times what it would be like playing with Howard, a six-time All-Star. “It would be great,� Williams said. “He’s one of the top five players in the world and there’s nobody like him in the NBA.�

Judge dismisses Armstrong’s legal challenge AUSTIN, TEXAS — A federal judge has dismissed Lance Armstrong’s lawsuit against the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency, but says the cyclist can refile it within 20 days. The seven-time Tour de France champion sued USADA on Monday in an attempt to prevent it from moving forward with charges that he used performance-enhancing drugs throughout much of his career. U.S. District Judge Sam Sparks ruled just hours later. He criticized Armstrong’s attorneys for filing an 80-page complaint the judge says seems more intended to whip up public opinion for his case than focus on the legal argument. Sparks, however, did not decide on the merits of Armstrong’s case and said he can refile the suit. Armstrong wanted Sparks to rule in his favor by Saturday, the deadline he faces to either accept sanctions from USADA or go to arbitration.

Attorney: Peterson charge a lie MINNEAPOLIS — Minnesota Vikings star Adrian Peterson was a victim, not the aggressor, during an altercation with authorities that led to his arrest at a Houston night club over the weekend, his attorney said Monday. Peterson, a Texas native who makes his offseason home in Houston, was arrested and taken to jail early Saturday morning and charged with resisting arrest, a misdemeanor. Police said he pushed an off-duty police officer who was working security at the club. An initial court appearance is set for Friday. Peterson’s attorney, Rusty Hardin, called the charge and the allegation that he shoved the officer “a total fabrication.� “He, in fact, was struck at least twice in the face for absolutely no legitimate reason, and when all the evidence is impartially reviewed, it will clearly show Adrian was the victim, not the aggressor,� Hardin said in a statement. Hardin represented Roger Clemens in his recent perjury case. Clemens was charged with lying to Congress when he denied using performance-enhancing drugs. He was retried this year and found not guilty on all counts.

He beat runner-up Christopher Froome of Britain by 35 seconds.

Aldrich MIA at camp ————

Ex-KU big man still playing By Matt Tait mtait@ljworld.com

OLATHE — For reasons he could not have expected when he made the schedule, former Kansas University center Cole Aldrich missed the opening day of his basketball camp Monday at Olathe Northwest High. But while the third-year pro was busy playing for Oklahoma City’s summer league squad in Orlando, Fla., a handful of current and former Jayhawks were in Olathe holding down the camp. Senior-to-be Travis Releford teamed with former Jayhawks Mark Randall and Jeff Gueldner to run more than 100 campers through a day of drills, instructions and various camp games. For Randall, a former first-round pick of the Chicago Bulls, helping Aldrich out was a nobrainer. “He gave us the headsup that he wasn’t gonna be here today, and that’s just how it works,” said Randall, recalling his days a pro. “If they say you’re gonna be in camp, you’re gonna be in camp. He’s not playing a ton with Oklahoma City, and he has to be able to show them that he’s worth investing in. And if it doesn’t work out in Oklahoma City, he’s gotta show someone else that he can play. So it’s a necessity for him. It’s horrible timing. But he could never have known this was gonna happen.” Camp officials said Aldrich was bummed about missing opening day of the camp that bears his name and was still holding out hope that he could get back to town at some point before camp closed Thursday. During Monday’s summer league opener, Aldrich started and played 31 minutes in the Thunder’s 73-65 loss to the Celtics. He scored one point, grabbed seven rebounds and blocked a shot. In the meantime, Aldrich lined up a pretty stellar lineup to fill the void. Randall and Gueldner are scheduled to be at camp every day, and former Jayhawks Brady Morningstar and Tyrel Reed are expected to pop in as often as possible. In addition, one member of KU’s current roster will be on site each day. “We do these camps all summer, so it’s a lot of fun,” Releford said. “I enjoy doing this.” Freshman Perry Ellis will be in the gym today, senior center Jeff Withey will take his turn Wednesday, and sophomore point

No … oh, never mind. Williams loves his golf, and I’d love to hear one more time his trusty line about only having had one wife and one putter his entire life. Lew Perkins — I’m an awful golfer. Awful. Perkins should be more than capable of helping manage — and maybe even massage — the big numbers I’d be sure to put up. Bob Frederick — Golf is a gentleman’s game, and Frederick was the consummate gentleman. He’d make everybody want to play the right way.

Tom Keegan Bill Lienhard — And if he wants to invite his beautiful wife and three gorgeous daughters to join us for drinks after the round, who am I to tell him he can’t? Played one of the most enjoyable nine holes of golf of my life with the forward from the ’52 national champs.

Ted Owens — The golf-addicted former KU basketall coach has been ducking me for too long. It’s time for a match. Doc Sadler — The highly competitive director of basketball operations won 48 games in two seasons as UTEP’s head coach. It would be interesting to see how he coaches himself through 18 holes worth of challenges. Can he turn his high-on-the-dial intensity into more of a positive than a negative in a game that rewards those who know how to relax? Bill Self — Cross-handed putter has an aggressive, inside-out swing with a wide arc, hits the ball a mile and draws it. With the restrictions the NCAA places on when coaches can evaluate and/ or talk to recruits, there is no reason Self shouldn’t play twice as much golf as he does. If he did, he would cut his 10.8 handicap index in half.

enough NFL experience to keep the funny tales going for a couple hours. Dave Campo — Campo is another gifted storyteller, and I’m sure his years with the Dallas Cowboys could make for some interesting chatter. Scot Pollard — He’s so zany that I’m not sure what would happen, but it would probably be funny.

Gary Bedore Glen Mason — I picture him as being a fierce competitor on the course. He had little bit of a temper. I always liked him, though. Bill Self — I’ve seen him hit the ball. Far. Roy Williams — I’ve seen him putt and also hit some bombs off the tee. Gary Schwartz — Any friend of the media can play in my group any time. Schwartz is probably the first KU coach in the modern era actually to phone the Journal-World with meet results and ask if we needed any information Jesse Newell from him. That’s expected Bill Self — He tells great of high school coaches, stories once he gets going. but a rarity at the college Charlie Weis — He has level.

Fielder wins Home Run Derby title again

Charlie Riedel/AP Photo

THE AMERICAN LEAGUE’S PRINCE FIELDER, OF THE DETROIT TIGERS, SWINGS during the second round of the MLB All-Star Home Run Derby on Monday in Kansas City, Mo. Fielder, who took the crown in 2009, beat out Toronto’s Jose Bautista, 12-7, in this year’s final.

KANSAS CITY, MO. (AP) — Prince Fielder made a splash at the All-Star Home Run Derby. Eight of them. The Detroit slugger joined Ken Griffey Jr. as the only players to win multiple titles, thrilling the crowd at Kauffman Stadium with several shots into the right-field fountain and beating Toronto’s Jose Bautista 12-7 in the final Monday night. “Just being mentioned with him is real special,” said Fielder, who spent time at Griffey’s house when he was a kid. “My dad would let me go over and play video games all day. He always took care of me when I was a kid.” On a night when the Yankees’ Robinson Cano was repeatedly booed and went homerless, Fielder put on the most powerful display among baseball’s

big boppers. Winner at St. Louis’ Busch Stadium three years ago, Fielder had a total of 28 home runs over three rounds to cap the main event on the eve of the All-Star game. He hit the four longest drives of the night, including a pair at 476 feet. “They were far,” he said. “That’s not easy to hit it out there.” While the ball stayed out of McCovey Cove during the 2007 Derby at San Francisco’s AT&T Park and the right-field swimming pool last year at Chase Field in Phoenix, there was plenty of aquatic activity in Kansas City, second only to Rome for most fountains in cities around the world. After three splash shots among his five homers in the first round, Fielder started off the second round as the setting sun lit

up clouds in a pretty pink behind the left-field wall. His mop of dreadlocks visible as he hit without a helmet, Fielder deposited four more balls into the 322-foot-wide water spectacular, which by then was illuminated in the twilight. He added another water drive in the final round, then leaned against one of his sons while he watched Bautista swing. “I’m a little disappointed,” Bautista said. “I’m capable of doing more. I had a lot of fun doing it.” When he won three years ago in St. Louis, Fielder’s 23 homers included a 503-foot drive that disappeared between two sections of bleachers in right-center. Griffey won titles in 1994 at Pittsburgh’s Three Rivers Stadium, 1998 at Denver’s Coors Field and 1999 at Boston’s Fenway Park.

Cano set a final-round record of 12 en route to last year’s title in Phoenix, where he hit 32 overall. This year he was the object of loud booing throughout by fans upset he didn’t select the Royals’ Billy Butler after promising to take a hometown player for his derby team. Carlos Gonzalez and Andrew McCutchen (four each) and Matt Kemp (one) also were dropped after the first round. Carlos Beltran (12) was dropped after the second round, when Mark Trumbo and Bautista were tied with 13 apiece, leading to a swingoff won by Bautista 2-1. Trumbo and Bautista each managed to put a drive into the small fountain beyond the left-field wall. Trumbo also hit a pair of shots over the Royals Hall of Fame in left, toward Interstate 70.

Yankees’ Cano gets earful from vengeful Royals fans By Erik Boland Newsday

KANSAS CITY, MO. — The boos rang down loud and lustily from the start. Not when Robinson Cano stepped into the batter’s box for the first time, his father, Jose, on the mound as he was last year in Phoenix. No, a full two hours earlier when Cano Cano, the defending Home Run Derby champion, appeared during batting practice on the big

screen for a live in-stadium interview Monday. Eyes closed, the response of the Kauffman Stadium crowd could have been mistaken for nearby Arrowhead Stadium with the hated Raiders in town. Only after Cano went 0-for-10 in his turn during the competition — he was the only one of the eight competitors to go homerless — did the crowd cheer. “I (won’t) say it was low-class,” Cano said. “This is for the fans, and that’s what they felt like. It didn’t bother me at all.” What spawned this normally docile Midwest town coming down full force on the Yankees sec-

ond baseman as if he was Al Davis? What fans of its baseball team saw as an unacceptable slight after what they understood as a promise made. One of their own, first baseman Billy Butler, with 16 home runs, surely would represent the hometown Royals in the Derby. But Cano, who more than a month earlier hinted that the 26-year-old would be one of his picks, chose elsewhere. And so the Kauffman Stadium crowd unleashed its fury on Cano, not letting up even after he was long gone from the competition, booing him at

each cutaway on the big screen. “It’s not like I didn’t pick him because I didn’t like him,” Cano said afterward. “Just a tough decision. I didn’t pick Adam Dunn, who had (25) bombs. You had Edwin Encarnacion, who had 23. The thing is you get to pick three guys. It’s a tough decision.” Butler said he wasn’t upset with Cano. “Robinson is a great player, he’s a great guy,” Butler said. “He’s one of the best players in the league. You can’t dislike the guy.” And though the Royals rooters didn’t want to hear it, it’s not as if Cano

hit the wall three times in his round. Cano had a built-in excuse for not performing at his disposal. He, along with fellow Yankees All-Stars Derek Jeter, Curtis Granderson and CC Sabathia, didn’t arrive in their rooms in Kansas City until around 5 a.m. Monday. That was because the Yankees finished an exhausting fourgames-in-three-days series in Fenway Park just after midnight Monday. “I feel a little bit tired but it’s not an excuse,” said Cano, who added that he would definitely participate in the Derby again. He said: “I still enjoyed it.”

Kansas City celebrates moment in spotlight

All-Star CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1B

Ryan Cook and Arizona pitcher Wade Miley. In a room full of baseball’s best, even the veterans are taking notice of Harper and Trout. “Speed. Power. Excitement. Youth. Energy,” Yankees center fielder Curtis Granderson said. “If they are able to stay healthy, they can completely transform the game as they get, five, 10, 15 years of big league time.” For now, both will start tonight’s game on the bench. With the result determining home-field advantage in the World Series for the 10th straight year, the AL manager Ron Washington will start reigning MVP and Cy Young Award winner Justin Verlander. The NL’s Tony La Russa, the first inactive All-Star manager since the AL’s Bob Lemon in 1979, chose San Francisco’s Matt Cain — coming off a perfect game last month — over knuckleballer R.A. Dickey of the New York Mets. While Trout was an AllStar shoo-in, La Russa appeared reluctant to select Harper and added him on Saturday as a replacement when Miami’s Giancarlo Stanton got hurt. Even the 67-year-old La Russa, who managed his first World Series champions before they were born, appreciates the focus on the new stars. “It would be nice to put the National League phenom against the American League phenom,” he said. When discussing Trout, Harper sounds like a fan. “He’s fun to watch. I get pumped to watch him,” Harper said. They hope this is just the first of many All-Star appearances. Harper and Trout know what they can become. They are the next generation, playing alongside the present.

went with a handful of Omar Vizquels. Joining Cano, who had 20 homers in the first half, on the AL team was Jose Bautista (27 homers), Mark Trumbo (22 homers) and Prince Fielder (15 homers). Fielder ended up beating Bautista in the final, very much in Cano’s eyes validating his choices. “I picked the right team, we won, American League ended up winning the trophy,” he said. Bautista hit 11 bombs in Monday’s first round, with Trumbo hitting seven and Fielder five. Cano, serenaded with a “Billy Butler! Billy Butler!” chant as he stepped to the plate,

No knuckleballer: La Russa picks Cain over Dickey for N.L. starter KANSAS CITY, MO. (AP) — Owner of the best record in baseball, R.A. Dickey was hoping to become the first knuckleballer to start an All-Star game since Dutch Leonard in 1943. A 12-1 record wasn’t good enough. Tony La Russa picked San Francisco’s Matt Cain to start for the National League tonight. “I’m not going to break down in tears over it, but at the same time I’m a competitor. I want to pitch. I want to start,” Dickey said Monday. “I feel like I had a good enough first half that I should be considered. But I’m not the boss. I don’t necessarily have to agree with him, but I have to respect it. That’s just the way it is.” Detroit’s Justin Verlander will start for the American League. La Russa, who retired after leading the St. Louis Cardinals to last year’s World Series title, made the decision after consulting with his longtime pitching coach, Dave Duncan.

Cain had the advantage of pitching a perfect game against Houston on June 13. “We wanted to reward Matt Cain for a career of excellence that’s getting better and better,” La Russa said. “And he had a great example of that during the summer on one of his pitching days.” Cain also will be pitching to his regular catcher, Buster Posey. La Russa said Dickey likely will enter the game sometime in the first five innings. Dickey hopes he wasn’t denied the start just because he throws knuckleballs. “You’re talking about the best players in the world, and you’re asking about a pitch that’s too nasty to handle?” Dickey said. “I hope that’s not it. If that’s the reason, that’s a poor reason.” Cain is 9-3 with a 2.62 ERA. Dickey, a first-time All-Star at age 37, became the first major leaguer in 24 years to throw consecutive one-hitters.

KANSAS CITY, MO. (AP) — It’s been 19 years since George Brett retired, and he remains the face of the Royals. The George Brett Bridge gets you across Interstate 70 and into Kauffman Stadium, where you pass by his statue as you head through Gate B. Men far too old to be asking for autographs cry out for his signature, and children stare in awe at someone they’re far too young to have seen play. It makes sense, too, when you consider the Royals have been baseball’s laughingstock the past two decades. They haven’t made the playoffs since winning the 1985 World Series, and haven’t had a winning season since 2003. Their fans have had little to cheer about during the summer heat. Until this year, and this moment, when the best of Major League Baseball has converged on Kansas City for the All-Star game, and all those fans finally have reason to celebrate. “I love this town. This town adopted me when I first came here in 1973,” said Brett, who has worked tirelessly the past 18 months as the All-Star game’s official ambassador. “I’m extremely honored that they named me ambassador,” he added, the strain of long days and sleepless nights evident in his voice. “I didn’t realize how much work was involved. But it’s been a lot of fun to show off the city.” To a nation that has rarely had an opportunity to see it. The product on the field has been so miserable over the years, the losing so common, that all those outsiders rarely have had a chance to appreciate what Midwesterners have come to adore. During one five-year stretch, the franchise lost 100 games four times. Players such as Carlos Beltran and Johnny Damon sparked hope, then were traded away. Pros-

Kansas City is a small market, we all know that. But they love their baseball here just as much, if not more.” — Royals designated hitter Billy Butler pects flamed out, youth movements fizzled, veterans got hurt. Guys such as Mark Redman wound up representing the club in the All-Star game. So of course Kansas City has been ignored by the baseball establishment. Fox, which will broadcast tonight’s All-Star game, has had the rights to MLB’s game of the week since 1996. But who would want to see the Royals over the Yankees anywhere but Kansas City? In the past three years, Fox has aired just one game nationally from Kauffman Stadium — earlier this year, in part to drum up interest in the Midsummer Classic. “Kansas City is a small market, we all know that. But they love their baseball here just as much, if not more,” Royals designated hitter Billy Butler said. “There will be a time we’re going to be a force in the American League, and where you’re going to have to talk about us a lot more.” For now, though, the city is content with people talking about the All-Star game. “Kansas City is a great city. It’s nostalgic. It’s a baseball town,” Padres reliever Huston Street said. “It’s one of those middleof-the-country baseball towns where it means a lot. You come here and you know you’re going to see plenty of fountains. You know you’re going to meet friendly people and eat some great barbecue. Kauffman Stadium is a really cool, special place. “It’s a great place for me to experience my first AllStar game.”

The ideal candidate will have solid news judgment, demonstrated business acumen and strong ethics and integrity. The right candidate will have the leadership skills necessary to implement initiatives quickly and efficiently and sustain those initiatives long term. He or she must be able to motivate our news team and hold team members accountable for high performance standards and work collaboratively with the other members of our highly effective and aggressive leadership team. Tell us about your education. It’s important. Tell us about your experience. It’s important. Do you have a history of success as a digital or multi-platform editor? Tell us about your knowledge and experience with social media. Tell us about your work as a journalist covering breaking news and developing enterprise stories. Tell us why you’re the person we want to build a team and manage projects. Tell us how you’ve had a lasting impact on the careers of seasoned journalists and newcomers alike.

PUBLIC NOTICE CONTINUED ON 10B


Dear Annie: My husband, “Kevin,” and I have been together for nine years. Every summer, Kevin used to go to the beach for a week’s vacation with a family he was close to. The entire group numbered about 15 people. Three years ago, Kevin told me he wanted to start taking vacations with them again. I was not invited. Kevin said there wasn’t enough room, and he’d have to sleep on the floor, which wouldn’t work for his chronic back problems. This year, I insisted on being included, so he grudgingly asked if I could come, but it is a sore spot now. I have spoken to Kevin multiple times about my feelings of abandonment stemming from his preference to exclude me from these vacations, and I never get a direct answer as to why he doesn’t want me to come. All he says is that he’s afraid I’ll somehow insult them. An-

nie, I had nothing against these people until my husband started ditching me to be with them. Worse, the 34-year-old daughter has come to our house twice and made herself right at home, taking food from the fridge and glasses from the cabinet. She’s had drug problems and recently was arrested for breaking and entering. This makes me uneasy, particularly since Kevin takes a lot of prescription medications. I get angry whenever I hear one of them talking about the next beach

Summer series are nothing new Summer replacement series could allow viewers to watch something they’ve never seen. But just as often they recycle the familiar — make that very familiar. Last night, NBC exhumed “Fear Factor,” a show kicking around since 2001. ABC’s new series “Trust Us With Your Life” (8 p.m. and 8:30 p.m.) combines elements of a traditional talk show with improvisational comedy. Celebrity guests arrive to discuss their childhood and career milestones and then have those just-described scenes acted out by a comedy ensemble troupe that includes Wayne Brady, Colin Mochrie and Jonathan Mangum. Brady and Mochrie were the core of “Whose Line Is it Anyway?” This Americanized version of the British comedy hit ran on ABC from 1998 to 2004.

Also “new” tonight is “NY Med” (9 p.m., ABC), an eight-part series offering a documentarystyle look at doctors, nurses and patients in busy New York City hospitals. The action ranges from life-and-death cases to scenes of mere social mortification, as in the case of a man who was admitted after taking a pill for erectile dysfunction. The pill worked a tad too well and its lingering effects long outlived its welcome. ‘‘NY Med” is similar to ABC series from previous summers, including “Hopkins 24/7” (2000), “Hopkins” (2008) and “Boston Med” (2010). All four shows were produced by Terence Wrong.

“Frontline” (8 p.m., PBS, check local listings) presents “Endgame: AIDS in Black America.” ‘‘Endgame” explores how prevailing attitudes in the black community, particularly in the African-American church, have prevented early detection and treatment of the disease, resulting in a grim public health disaster for a community already beset by social and economic crises.

Tonight’s other highlights

trip, and I start criticizing them to Kevin because I can’t seem to get through to him how this makes me feel. What can I do? — Sad, Hurt and Confused Dear Sad: The fact that your husband wants to take his summer vacation without his wife and in the company of a drug abuser is suspicious and worrisome. Frankly, we think this environment is unhealthy for Kevin, and that’s why he doesn’t want you around. Stop criticizing this family and work on Kevin. He’s not being honest with you. Dear Annie: My 33-year-old daughter is expecting my first grandchild soon. Her friends are giving her a baby shower in two weeks. My son, who lives near his sister, has a “surprise” new wife who has not been invited. My daughter thinks it would be too stressful to meet her new sister-in-law for the first time at her shower. I think

JACQUELINE BIGAR’S STARS

For Tuesday, July 10: This year, just when you think you are on cruise control, the unexpected hits. What occurs will point to what is frivolous in your life. If you are single, relationships formed this year will not be stable for at least a year. If you are attached, you could feel waves of excitement but might not always love the form they take. 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)  The unexpected occurs, but others respond in a caring, distinct manner and want to be included. You might feel tense as a result of this surprise. Tonight: Beam in what you want. Taurus (April 20-May 20)  You look at a situation much differently than others do. You gain sudden insight and, as a result, can move forward with a personal matter very quickly. Tonight: Take a night off just for you. Gemini (May 21-June 20)  You could be taken aback by someone you care a lot about. You will discover just how unpredictable this person might be. Tonight: At a game, or anywhere people are. Cancer (June 21-July 22)  You could be stunned by someone’s ideas. You clearly care about this person, but you might not agree with his or her style. Tonight: Throw yourself in the whirlwind of living. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)  Look at the big picture. You might feel much better and more empowered after you express the bottom line. Tonight: Follow the music. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)  You might want to rethink

all the female members of the family should be invited, even new ones. I will be flying in to attend the shower and want to visit my son and his new bride. This means he will wonder why I’m in town. I don’t want his new wife to feel slighted that she wasn’t invited to the shower. I realize I can’t tell my 33-year-old daughter what to do. I just don’t know whether to tell my son that we are coming. — Don’t Like Secrets Dear Secrets: It is not a lie to tell your son that you are in town to meet his new wife, because that is part of your trip. However, if your daughter truly wanted to include her new sister-inlaw at the shower, she could easily make her acquaintance within the next two weeks. She is being unkind, and this could lead to future problems. Please do your best to encourage her to invite her brother’s new wife.

someone’s comments. You could be oversensitive and take something the wrong way. Tonight: Find your favorite person. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)  Others seem to be “hunting” you down. Enjoy the popularity, and do not make a big deal out of changing your plans. Tonight: Out with your pals. Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)  Others appear to be flaky, and no matter what stage of life you currently are in, you are left holding the bag. Detach from not-so-friendly feelings, and get done what you must. Tonight: Could go late. Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)  Your sense of humor helps loosen others up. Be open about your feelings — you will appreciate the response you receive. Tonight: Be careful not to start a problem with a loved one. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)  You cannot get away from a domestic concern, at least until it has been appropriately handled. You know when enough is enough and set boundaries as a result. Tonight: Head on home. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)  Keep a conversation moving. If you or the other person overthinks, you could become far more closed off. Tonight: Out to a favorite place. Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)  Be aware of your spending and allow greater emotional sharing to occur. You can give in ways that are more meaningful if you stop and think about it. Tonight: Keep to your budget! — The astrological forecast should be read for entertainment only.
