U.S. News: KU Hospital No. 1 in state

By Andy Hyland

The magazine U.S. News and World Report gave high marks to Kansas University Hospital in its latest “Best Hospital” rankings, which were released late Monday night. The hospital was ranked in 10 of 12 medical and surgical specialty areas ranked by the magazine. The hospital was ranked on six lists for the past two years. KU Hospital was the only hospital in Kansas or the Kansas City area to be ranked on any of the U.S. News lists. In a written statement, Bob Page, president and CEO of KU Hospital, said the rankings were based on quality of care and patient outcomes. “This is a tribute to the partnership between our physicians, nurses and other health care providers,” he said. “You cannot get these results without all parties united in Please see KU HOSPITAL, page 5A Nick Krug/Journal-World Photo

IT HAS BEEN ALMOST THREE YEARS SINCE Lawrence resident Joel Hernandez, while driving drunk, struck and killed Rachel Leek, 20, as she was riding her bicycle near 10th and Tennessee streets on Oct. 16, 2009. Hernandez, who is preparing for his senior year at Haskell Indian Nations University, says he is comforted by knowing he has been forgiven by some members of the Leek family.


For a grieving father whose daughter died too soon and for the man responsible for her death, it was a private moment of grace. Joel C. Hernandez, then 22, waited in a small room at the Douglas County Courthouse on May 20, 2010. Minutes

After about two hours of discussion Monday morning, the Douglas County Commission advanced a budget that will require no increase or decrease in property taxes for next year. Much of the discussion was a rehash of previous differences in funding priorities among the threemember commission. Commissioner Jim Flory, a Republican, wanted to cut the Heritage ConservaCOUNTY tion Fund by $250,000 and COMMISSION the economic development fund by $100,000. That would have allowed the county to maintain funding for social service agencies and add new jobs in the Please see COUNTY, page 5A

‘I think I hit something’ Hernandez, now 24, emerges from an SUV and hobbles out on crutches. Sprained knee, he says, from a slip. He’ll have to call his mom to be picked back up, he explains. He doesn’t drive anymore. In his only media interview, Hernandez spoke at length about the accident that killed Rachel Leek, a former Kansas University student who worked at WheatFields Bakery. Hernandez admits to driving drunk after an evening at a downtown Lawrence bar on Oct. 16, 2009. The two women he was with were much drunker, Hernandez said, so he drove the women home in one of their cars. Leek, meanwhile, was riding her bicycle down the 1000 block of Tennessee Street around 2:15 a.m., on her way to visit her boyfriend, Sam Goodell, who was one of the first people on scene after hearing ambulance sirens. Hernandez said he never saw Leek, as he looked to the side before changing lanes on Tennessee

Instead, Jim Leek gave Hernandez a card from his daughter’s funeral that included her picture. Leek said a few words to Hernandez, then gave the young man a hug. And with that, forgiveness.


— Joel Hernandez Street. When he looked back, there was a handsized crack in the windshield. “I’ve gone over it in my head so many times,” Hernandez said. “There was no sound.” As they continued, Hernandez said, “I think I hit something.” The passengers said they didn’t see or hear anything, according to Hernandez. They didn’t look or turn back either. It took police several weeks before they announced a suspect in the fatal hit-and-run case, and several more before they named Hernandez. Hernandez said that led some people to think he was hiding out or on the run. But police knew the identity of the driver and brought Hernandez in for questioning the morning after the accident, Hernandez said. After seeing news of the accident, one of the women in the car the night before called Hernandez and told him she thought they hit Leek. Hernandez agreed to go to the police, but as he pulled out of his dorm parking lot at Haskell, he was quickly surrounded by unmarked police cars and taken in for questioning.

of the story, that he didn’t know he hit Leek, is difficult for people to accept. “I’m already set on the fact that people won’t believe me,” he said. After getting out of jail, Hernandez re-enrolled at Haskell and was elected Student Senate president. He’ll enter his senior year in the fall, finishing up a business administration degree. After graduation, he talks about getting his MBA, possibly at Gonzaga University in Spokane, Wash., near where his brother lives. He credits the friends and family who stood by him with getting his life back on track. “I could be at home, just hating myself for what I’ve done,” he said. Instead, he’s tried to move forward, distancing himself from the partying and careless living that was part of his life a few years ago. “I surround myself ‘They’ll look right with people who want to through you’ do something with their Hernandez, a Lawrence lives,” he said.

He knows his version Does he believe HerHernandez asked for a lawyer after waiting at the police station most of the day. An officer drove him back to his mother’s house. Hernandez had not seen the news coverage and didn’t know Leek died later that day at a Topeka hospital. He found out from the officer who dropped him off. “He said, ‘She’s dead. You killed her,’” Hernandez said. In the intervening months, Hernandez’s attorney, Al Lopes, worked with prosecutors on a plea agreement. Because there was no way to prove whether Hernandez was over the legal drinking limit, prosecutors didn’t opt for a more serious manslaughter charge. The two sides settled on a driving under the influence charge, and Malone imposed the maximum jail sentence for a first-time offense.

nandez’s version of events? “Who knows?” Leek said. But how the accident happened isn’t really relevant to him at this point, and it never played into his decision to forgive Hernandez, he said. “I try to listen to my heart,” he said. “We understood it was an accident.” Leek hadn’t heard anything about Hernandez’s life following his release from jail. He said he’s glad to hear Hernandez is moving forward and taking positive steps. “Rachel was not a grudge-holding person,” he said. “Rachel would’ve wanted him to go on.” For two years, the family has been running an organic gardening business, Rachel’s Gardens, in honor of Rachel, who was one of 11 Leek children. Leek motions to the backyard, where the top of a greenhouse used for the business is visible through the trees. “As human beings, we don’t often learn the easy way,” Leek said. Leek doesn’t remember exactly what he said to Hernandez in that courthouse meeting. He remembers the card and the hug. But that moment of forgiveness is crystal clear for Hernandez. “That’s all I needed,” Hernandez said. “I know that the family doesn’t hate me. That’s one of the things that gets me through it.” — Reporter Shaun Hittle can be reached at 832-7173. Follow him at 609 N.H. (offices) • 645 N.H.

BRIEFLY Train track reopens after derailment


Kansas wants to fight lawsuit

Union Pacific Railroad officials have reopened tracks west of Perry after seven cars hauling coal derailed late Sunday morning, said Mark Davis, a railroad spokesman. Davis said the 135-car train was traveling from Wyoming to Kentucky. Crews are still trying to determine the cause of the incident, which occurred at 11:40 a.m. Sunday. There are two main tracks in the area. One was closed as a precaution, but it sustained no damage. UP officials reopened it about 2:45 p.m. Sunday. Davis said crews did have to replace about 500 feet of track on the line where the derailment occurred. It reopened about 1 a.m. Monday.


State’s AG seeks voice in ‘dead zone’ claims By Scott Rothschild

Woman charged in stabbing case Police on Sunday arrested a 32-year-old Lawrence woman who is a suspect in a stabbing related to a domestic disturbance reported last week. Sgt. Trent McKinley, a Lawrence police spokesman, said officers located the woman, Matilda Ornelas, about 4 p.m. Sunday in the 1100 block of Tennessee Street. Police said last Thursday that a COURTS 37-yearold Lawrence man was taken to Lawrence Memorial Hospital with two stab wounds to his torso. Officers thought he was stabbed in connection with an earlier disturbance in the 1100 block of Tennessee Street. McKinley said Monday he did not have an update on the victim’s condition but that the man’s injuries did require surgery. Douglas County prosecutors later Monday filed an aggravated battery charge against Ornelas. A judge set her bond at $10,000, and she is next scheduled to appear in court Thursday in front of District Judge Paula Martin.

New librarian hired for Eudora ————

Community discussion about public facility’s future likely on the horizon By Chad Lawhorn

Lawrence may not be the only Douglas County community that decides to invest in new library space even as the book world makes a dramatic turn into the digital age. Leaders with the Eudora Public Library announced on Monday they have hired a new library director who comes to Eudora after having successfully led an effort to build a $1.3 million library in Andover. Carol Wohlford, who has served as the director of the Andover Public Library for the last nine years, will take over in early September as the director of the Eudora Public Library. She said she expects issues surrounding Eudora’s nearly 40-year-old, 2,500 square-

foot library building to be a major topic. “I have done this once, and if Eudora is ready to build a new library, I’m ready to do it again,” Wohlford said. Eudora officials haven’t yet made any decisions about whether to seek public approval for a new library, but Wohlford’s hiring makes it clear a community discussion about the future of the library is on the horizon, said Kenny Massey, chair of the library’s board of directors. “The board hasn’t officially started to talk about a new library yet, but the patrons who use the library regularly and the board realize the time is quickly approaching that we’re going to have to talk about the subject,” Massey said. “Carol has

been through the growing pains of a library, which is where we’re at right now.” Eudora library leaders, however, did secure property for a new library as part of an interlocal agreement when a vacant Eudora school building was razed last year. The library now owns a portion of the former Eudora school site near Ninth and Main streets in downtown.

The new job represents a bit of a homecoming for Wohlford. She grew up in East Lawrence and attended Kansas University. She married KU football player Bill Wohlford, who later went on to become a top aide to U.S. Sen. Bob Dole.

World Company announces Gulf pending sale of software firm


J-W Staff Reports

A Lawrence-based software firm that provides services for online news sites across the country has reached a preliminary deal to be purchased by a Chicago e-publishing company. Leaders with Lawrence’s The World Company have announced that a letter of intent has been signed to sell the company’s Ellington CMS and Marketplace software to ePublishing Inc. The pending deal comes after The World Company announced a structured reduction of operations in June. The pending sale will allow ePublishing Inc. to begin serving the clients who use the Ellington software system for their

websites. ePublishing plans to continue to support, develop and sell both Ellington CMS and Marketplace as distinct stateof-the-art products in the ePublishing portfolio. The World Company, which is the parent company of the Journal-World and, announced in June that it was phasing out its work with Ellington as part of a corporate strategy to reemphasize a digital and local focus. “Online and mobile technologies are accelerating in sophistication and play an increasingly key role for media companies, who as a group have the absolute highest requirements,” said Bill Fowle, director of digital operations for The World Company. “Ellington has been a leader for over a decade,

and transitioning our clients to the best possible service, technology, infrastructure and expertise was paramount. We found that in ePublishing.” Ellington staff members are being retained and are available to clients for implementations and ongoing support. Ellington was launched in 2000 as a business venture of the Lawrence Journal-World. Ellington’s feature-rich Web content management system and local business search service Marketplace have grown to serve more than 300 websites in North America. ePublishing is a cloud-based SaaS provider of integrated content management, eCommerce, and customer relationship management solutions serving publishers since 1997.

Sprint fires up 4G network By Peter Svensson Associated Press

NEW YORK — Sprint Nextel Corp. said Monday that it has turned on its new wireless data network, providing a muchneeded boost to the carrier, whose data speeds lag those of its largest competitors. Sprint fired up the fourth-generation, or 4G, network in Atlanta, Dallas, Houston, Kansas City, San Antonio and some smaller surrounding cities on Sunday. It uses LTE, or Long-Term Evolution, technology already in use by Verizon Wireless and AT&T Inc.

Inmates face new charges related to escape By John Milburn Associated Press

TOPEKA — Three of the four inmates who broke out of a north-central Kansas jail in April face new charges related to their escape. Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt has charged Santos M. Carrera-Morales, 22, Drew Edward Wade, 23, and Alberto Jon Barraza-Lujan, 23, with aggravated escape from custody and aggravated battery of a law COURTS enforcement officer in connection from their April escape from the Ottawa County Jail in Minneapolis, about 120 miles west of Topeka. The three have court dates scheduled in August and September to hear the new charges. Schmidt’s spokesman, Jeff Wagaman, said Monday that charges are still being reviewed for a fourth inmate, Eric James, 22. The inmates were among 22 from the Ellsworth Correctional Facility who were being housed at the county jail in an effort to relieve overcrowding at the state prison. The arrangement was part of a contract the Department of Corrections had with a handful of county facilities. Since the escape, state prison officials have purchased a former youth home in Ellsworth that will be renovated to house minimum security inmates to give additional bed space and prevent the need to outsource inmates to counties.

Four smartphones and one mobile-hotspot device are capable of using the network. PC Magazine got early access to the network a month ago, and found that it’s not quite as fast as Verizon’s and AT&T’s equivalents, but a big step up from Sprint’s older 3G, or third-generation, network and the 4G access it rents from Clearwire Corp. Sprint, the third-largest U.S. cellphone carrier, doesn’t have as much available spectrum, or space on the airwaves, as the larger carriers do. That holds back its LTE speeds somewhat.

Verizon and AT&T also have much wider coverage on their LTE networks. Verizon covers 304 markets, or two-thirds of the U.S. population. Sprint, which is based in Overland Park, Kan., is planning to expand LTE coverage this year and largely complete the network buildout next year. It’s planning to supplement its own LTE network with that of Clearwire, which has yet to fire up. Sprint had said that Baltimore would also be among the first cities to get LTE, but it was missing from the initial lineup.

BRIEFLY Woman implicated in child driver crash Lawrence police plan to forward information to prosecutors about a Saturday evening crash in North Lawrence after they said a 49-year-old woman let a 13-year-old child drive a car that struck a telephone pole. Sgt. Trent McKinley, a police spokesman, said officers were called to a crash about 5 p.m. Saturday near North Second and Lyon streets. Police determined the occupants of the car were a woman who had a suspended driver’s license, the child she apparently allowed to drive, and a 7-year-old child, he said. McKinley said officers determined the group had left a home in northwestern Jefferson County. The woman allegedly offered to let the older child begin driving the car near Perry in order to “learn how to drive,” he said. As they entered Lawrence, the plan was to switch back so the adult could drive in town, but as they were pulling into a parking lot the car struck the pole. All three occupants in the vehicle were taken to Lawrence Memorial Hospital by ambulance with injuries that were not life-threatening, McKinley said. The vehicle also did not have current registration and insurance. A copy of the accident report was not yet posted on the department’s website Monday. Police did not issue any citations, and were to send information about the case to the Douglas County District Attorney’s Office for possible child endangerment charges, McKinley said.

Exercise to test disaster response Douglas County Emergency Management will direct a hazardous materials exercise today, and agencies in 19 counties will participate. Bob Newton, an emergency management spokesman, said it is part of a grant that involves a full-scale exercise in Douglas County during which law enforcement, fire and medical units will respond. Lawrence Memorial Hospital also will practice patient decontamination. Other functional exercises will occur in Geary, Franklin and Jefferson counties. Tabletop exercise will take place in 15 other northeast Kansas counties. The exercise, “Operation Luminous Sunflower,” will give agencies an opportunity to respond and coordinate on issues to practice for a real incident, Newton said.

Objection to Hawker Beechcraft deal filed WICHITA (AP) — The machinists union is opposing Hawker Beechcraft’s efforts to enter into exclusive talks with a Chinese firm for the sale of its civilian aircraft operations.

Superior has agreed to pay $50 million during the exclusivity period to cover operating costs for the business jet company while the deal is finalized.

interest in the outcome of this case, so we’re asking to be at the table to defend Kansas’ interests when the issues are presented and decided,” he said. Environmental groups, including the Gulf Restoration Network and Sierra Club, want the Environmental Protection Agency to impose new regulations on nitrogen and phosphorous pollution, much of which comes from fertilizers. The nutrients stimulate algae growth, depleting oxygen levels in the water. The dead zone, or low oxygen area, that forms in the Gulf of Mexico along the coast of Louisiana and Texas has ranged from 5,000 to 8,000 square miles and has an adverse effect on the $2.8 billion commercial and recreational fishing industry, according to the lawsuit. The lawsuit seeks to force the EPA to set numeric standards for nitrogen and phosphorous pollution. Currently, nutrient standards have been left to the states. Kansas and many use what is called a narrative criteria where bodies of water are classified as to what they should be able to maintain and what they shouldn’t have. Schmidt said that system works. “State governments and agricultural producers in the Mississippi River Basin have worked successfully for years to minimize nutrient runoff and will continue to do so,” Schmidt said. “Discarding state efforts in favor of a one-sizefits-all federal standard imposed by the EPA is unnecessary and would hurt Kansas agriculture and our state’s economy,” he said. In addition to Kansas, the states seeking to join

in the Louisiana litigation are Alabama, Arkansas, Iowa, Kentucky, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, Oklahoma and South Dakota. A number of agriculture groups also have intervened in the lawsuit. Laura Calwell, Kansas riverkeeper for Friends of the Kaw, said, “Nutrients are becoming a bigger and bigger problem,” and she noted that Milford Reservoir was closed to recreation during the Labor Day weekend last year because of an algae bloom. In 2010, Friends of the Kaw — Kaw is the nickname of the 173-mile Kansas River — notified the EPA that it intended to sue for tougher water quality standards. But then the organization decided not to pursue litigation because of the political climate, Calwell said, citing the recession and the 2010 elections, which produced a more conservative U.S. Congress and Kansas Legislature. Calwell disagreed with Schmidt’s statement that the states can handle the issue and supports the lawsuit filed in Louisiana. — Statehouse reporter Scott Rothschild can be reached at 785-423-0668.


D.C., Wohlford worked as a librarian at the Smithsonian. In Andover, Wohlford led a campaign to build a new 15,000 square-foot library to replace the community’s aging 2,500 square-foot building. The new building allowed the library to add a computer lab, art gallery, meeting rooms, an expanded children’s section, a genealogy department and other features. But Wohlford said she doesn’t know what could be in store for Eudora until she hears from patrons and leaders in the community. “But I do believe that a good library has to become a community hub,” Wohlford said. “The director has to reach out to the community and develop a place where people of all ages want to come.” Wohlford replaces Marlene Evinger, who retired at the end of 2011 after 27 years with the Eudora Public Library. — City reporter Chad Lawhorn can be reached at 832-6362.

nal use of explosives after an incident last week at a Lawrence apartment. According to Douglas County Jail records, a sheriff’s officer arrested Adam Bennett Dale, 20, on a warrant in the case late Monday morning. He’s charged with two counts of criminal use of an explosive in connection with a July 9 incident in the 700 block of West 25th Street. Prosecutors filed two counts of criminal use of an explosive last week against Dakota Jackson Kunkle, also 20, of Lawrence, after officers late on July 7 were sent to an apartment in the 700 block of West 25th Street. Police said officers later determined residents there had been making homemade explosives involving firework ignition powder. Kunkle was also charged with a separate incident involving explosives in July 2011. Dale posted $3,000 bond later Monday and was given notice to appear in court July 30. • Douglas County prosecutors Monday charged James Edward Jackson, a 21-year-old Kansas City, Mo., man, with felony theft and not having a valid driver’s license after he was accused of stealing a vehicle from a party in the 2500 block of West 31st Street early Saturday. The victim reported at 1:50 a.m. Saturday that someone stole his keys out of his back pocket, and he alleged he and friends saw the suspect drive away with his vehicle. Sgt. Trent McKinley, a Lawrence police spokesman, said officers caught up with the vehicle near Kansas Highway 10 and U.S. Highway 40 west of Lawrence, and a pursuit began. Douglas County Sheriff’s officers also assisted, and a deputy deployed spikes in the highway near K-10 and Kasold Drive. Jackson eventually lost a front tire on the vehicle and stopped in the 3200 block of Iowa Street, where he was later apprehended on foot, McKinley said. A judge set Jackson’s bond at $5,000 on Monday. Prosecutors on Monday did not charge him with reckless driving or fleeing and eluding police, even though he was originally arrested on those charges. • A woman reported to Lawrence police early Sunday she awoke to finding a man inside her house in the 3500 block of West 10th Place. Sgt. Trent McKinley, a police spokesman, said the woman heard footsteps inside her home at 4:45 a.m. and later encountered a man carrying a flashlight inside. The suspect fled on foot, and the woman reported about $1,900 worth of cash and electronics was taken. Police believe the suspect entered the house through an open garage door, and officers do not have a

County Administrator Craig Weinaug recommended a higher capital improvement fund for next year to give the commissioners a “safety net” in the event of state funding shortfalls or possible declines in the county’s property valuation. Weinaug’s recommended budget included $4.32 million for capital improvements, up from about $4 million last year. In the compromise passed Wednesday, the commission cut $244,730 from Weinaug’s recommendation. All three commissioners agreed to add $46,924 for a new job in the appraiser’s office as well as $55,636 for one new road and bridge employee.

Gaughan, the commission chairman, said this year’s process was much like previous years’ in the dispute over the heritage fund and a few other issues. “But the difference about this year is that we came out with a compromise for action,” he said. The budget will now go to a public hearing at 6:35 p.m. Aug. 8 on the second floor of the County Courthouse, 1100 Mass. Other changes to the recommended budget passed Monday include:

Sgt.

The motorcycle left the road to the north, injuring Pringle and his passenger, Kathy Brown, 40. Brown was flown by a LifeStar helicopter ambulance to Stormont-Vail Regional Health Center in Topeka. Pringle was taken there via ground ambulance, where he was listed in satisfactory condition, a hospital spokeswoman said Monday morning. Information about Brown’s condition was not available.

Drought now grips more than half of the nation By Jim Suhr and Steve Karnowski

Majority of Kansas corn crop in poor condition

Associated Press

WALTONVILLE, ILL. — The nation’s widest drought in decades is spreading, with more than half of the continental United States now in some stage of drought and most of the rest enduring abnormally dry conditions. Only in the 1930s and the 1950s has a drought covered more land, according to federal figures released Monday. So far, there’s little risk of a Dust Bowltype catastrophe, but crop losses could mount if rain doesn’t come soon. In its monthly drought report, the National Climatic Data Center in Asheville, N.C., announced that 55 percent of the country was in a moderate to extreme drought at the end of June. The parched conditions expanded last month in the West, the Great Plains and the Midwest, fueled by the 14th warmest and 10th driest June on record, the report said.

Crops damaged Topsoil has turned dry while “crops, pastures and rangeland have deteriorated at a rate rarely seen in the last 18 years,” the report said. The percentage of affected land is the largest since December 1956, when 58 percent of the country was covered by drought, and it rivals even some years in the Dust Bowl era of the 1930s, though experts point out that this year’s weather has been milder than that period, and farming practices have been vastly improved since then. In southern Illinois, Kenny Brummer has lost 800 acres of corn that he grows

WICHITA — A new government report is painting a grim snapshot of the drought’s effects on farms across Kansas. Kansas Agricultural Statistics Service reported Monday that more than half of the state’s corn crop is in poor to very poor condition.

Soybean and sorghum crops are faring only slightly better with more than 40 percent of both those Kansas crops also in poor to very poor condition. The misery extends beyond the field crops as livestock producers struggle with dried up pastures

and shrinking hay and stock water supplies. The agency estimates 78 percent of the range and pasture land in Kansas is in poor to very poor shape. Hay and forage supplies are 57 percent short. Stock water is short to very short across 55 percent of Kansas.

A FIELD OF CORN WITHERS UNDER TRIPLE-DIGIT HEAT north of Wichita in Sedgwick County on Monday. The drought gripping the United States is the widest since 1956, according to new data released Monday by the National Climatic Data Center. to feed his 400 head of cattle and 30,000 hogs. Now he’s scrambling to find hundreds of thousands of bushels of replacement feed. “Where am I going to get that from? You have concerns about it every morning when you wake up,” said Brummer, who farms near Waltonville. “The drought is bad, but that’s just half of the problem on this farm.” Around a third of the nation’s corn crop has been hurt, with some of it so badly damaged that farmers have already cut down their withered plants to feed to cattle. As of Sunday, the U.S. Department of Agriculture said, 38 percent of the corn crop was in poor or very poor condition, compared with 30 percent a week earlier. “This is definitely the epicenter — right in the heart of the Midwest,” said climatologist Mark Svoboda with the Nebraskabased National Drought Mitigation Center. It’s all a huge comedown for farmers who had expected a record year when they sowed 96.4 million

acres in corn, the most since 1937. The Department of Agriculture initially predicted national average corn yields of 166 bushels per acre this year. The agency has revised that projection down to 146, and more reductions are possible if conditions don’t improve. The lower projection is still an improvement over the average yields of around 129 bushels a decade ago. But already tight supplies and fears that the drought will get worse before it gets better have been pushing up grain prices, which are likely to translate into higher food prices for consumers, particularly for meat and poultry.

‘History in the making’ Monday’s report was based on data going back to 1895 called the Palmer Drought Index. It feeds into the widely watched and more detailed U.S. Drought Monitor, which reported last week that 61 percent of the continental U.S. was in a moderate to exceptional drought. How-

ever, the weekly Drought Monitor goes back only 12 years, so climatologists use the Palmer Drought Index for comparing droughts before 2000. Climatologists have labeled this year’s dry spell a “flash drought” because it developed in a matter of months, not over multiple seasons or years. The current drought is similar to the droughts of the 1950s, which weren’t as intense as those of the 1930s, said Jake Crouch, a climatologist with the National Climatic Data Center. And farming has changed a lot since the Dust Bowl era. Better soil conservation has reduced erosion, and modern hybrids are much more resistant to drought. But Crouch said it’s important to understand that this drought is still unfolding. In northwest Kansas, Brian Baalman’s cattle pastures have dried up, along with probably half of his corn crop. He desperately needs some rain to save the rest of it, and he’s worried what will happen if the drought lingers into next year. “I have never seen this type of weather before like this. A lot of old timers haven’t either,” Baalman said. “I just think we are seeing history in the making.”

Feds Candidates to expand data access for voter purging CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1A

By Mike Baker Associated Press

OLYMPIA, WASH. — The federal government is expanding access to an immigration database so that several states can use it to cleanse voter rolls, officials said Monday. Homeland Security Department representatives first notified Florida officials last week that they could check to see if registered voters are actually noncitizens who should not be eligible to cast a ballot. State officials said Monday that the department is now offering similar access to other states who had been requesting the information. “I’m pleased that DHS has agreed to work with states to verify the citizenship of people on the voter rolls and help reduce our vulnerability,” said Colorado Secretary of State Scott Gessler, who had renewed his request for the data last week, writing a letter with the support of several other states. Elections leaders in Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Georgia, Iowa, Kansas, Michigan, New Mexico, Ohio and Utah had signed onto Gessler’s request. Five of the states — Colorado, Iowa, Michigan, New Mexico and Ohio — are expected to be competitive in the 2012 presidential race. Each of the election chiefs in those states is Republican. The data work is supposed to help states identify people who may be legal residents but not citizens.

Barnhart, a farmer, also spoke against corporate influence of politics, saying he wanted to pursue policies that benefited the middle class “instead of the millionaires on one side and billionaires on the other side.” All three said they supported President Barack Obama’s Affordable Care Act, which Republicans have vowed to repeal. Barnhart criticized the numerous votes by Republicans in the House to repeal the ACA, saying, “But they don’t bother to have one vote on what they would replace it with.” Schlingensiepen said the ACA didn’t solve all health care issues, but added, “We need to build on what’s good and solve the problem of rising health care costs.” Eye called the ACA a “step in the right direction.” He said he met a woman in Fort Scott whose great-grandchild was diagnosed with a tumor. The child’s treatment cost $1.8 million, and insurance covered most of that, but the middle class family faced a 20 percent co-pay. “They had to choose between bankruptcy or health care, and that is not a choice that any family should have to make,” he said. Eye and Schlingensiepen said they would try to improve the economy by focusing on infrastructure improvement and renewable energy. Barnhart said the government should help small farmers.

Mideast peace Romney tries to switch campaign focus slips to second billing for U.S. By Charles Babington and Steve Peoples

Associated Press

CINCINNATI — Using unusually vivid language, Mitt Romney tried to take the political offensive against President Barack Obama on Monday, accusing Obama of cronyism that “stinks” in steering federal contracts to supporters. He also dropped hints through a spokesman that a vice presidential pick could come any day. Unfazed, Obama needled his Republican rival for finally having a job-creation plan — for people overseas. At the same time, though Romney endeavored to switch the campaign focus, questions about his tenure at Bain Capital, a venture capital company, seemed

By Bradley Klapper and Josef Federman Associated Press

JERUSALEM — Mideast peace, America’s defining issue for decades of dealings with Israel and its Arab neighbors, was just a postscript Monday as Hillary Rodham Clinton made perhaps her final visit to the region as secretary of state. Three years after President Barack Obama declared the plight of the Palestinians “intolerable,” his administration no longer sees the failing Arab-Israeli peace efforts with the same immediacy. U.S. interests are focused now on Iran and Syria, though the deep differences between Israel and the Palestinians are not ignored. “Peace among Israel, the Palestinian people and all of Israel’s Arab neighbors is crucial for Israel’s longterm progress and prosperity,” Clinton said following discussions with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and the country’s president, foreign minister and defense minister. Clinton also met Palestinian Prime Minister Salam Fayyad, but she couldn’t report any progress toward an accord that might secure an independent Palestine and an Israel at peace with its neighbors. In a departure from the usual pattern for top U.S. diplomats, she did not travel to the Palestinian Authority’s West Bank seat of government in Ramallah. The Palestinians said a visit was unnecessary because Clinton had met with the Palestinian president, Mahmoud Abbas, just a few days earlier in Paris. Israel has defied

ISRAEL’S PRESIDENT SHIMON PERES, and U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton are seen during a media briefing following their meeting at the president’s residence in Jerusalem on Monday. Clinton met Peres for about an hour as part of what is perhaps her final visit to Israel as secretary of state. Obama’s call to halt settlement construction in occupied lands, and the Palestinian leadership in the West Bank has refused to resume negotiations, leaving peace hopes in a tense status quo with no breakthrough in sight. Both Israelis and Palestinians are frustrated with one another and with Obama’s peace efforts so far. Palestinian spokeswoman Hanan Ashrawi said Obama’s Mideast policy has been a “disaster.” Obama acknowledged frustrations in an interview Sunday, but in many ways, the region’s crises and Washington’s priorities have moved on. Syria’s civil war, Egypt’s political instability and the Iranian nuclear program have all overshadowed the moribund peace process.

destined to shape the conversation at least a while longer. On a day devoted mainly to raising Romney money, Romney went on Fox News to complain that all Obama can do “is attack me” on Bain and other subjects rather than taking useful steps to improve the economy. Sure enough, the Democratic incumbent showed no sign of letting up. Rallying for support in crucial Ohio, Obama said Romney’s proposal to free companies from taxes on their foreign holdings would displace American workers. The president cited a study

he said concluded that “Gov. Romney’s economic plan would in fact create 800,000 j o b s . Obama There’s only one problem, the jobs wouldn’t be in America.” Romney’s campaign, itself moving to the attack, contended that Obama’s Energy Department has steered loans and grants to several companies connected to the president’s political supporters. Romney, speaking to donors in Baton Rouge, La., said Obama had a policy of “taking your tax dollars and putting it in businesses owned by contributors to

his campaign. And that is smelly at best. It stinks.” Romney aides cited some well-known cases, such as Solyndra, a California solar energy company that went bankrupt, and some less-publicized cases. They include Westly Group, a venture capital firm whose affiliated companies have received federal loans and grants. Steve Westly, the company’s founder, is a major Obama campaign fundraiser. Obama campaign spokeswoman Jen Psaki said the Energy Department’s decisions “were made without regard to political connections.” She said some grants have gone to projects with “just as robust connections to Republican campaigns and donors.”

FDA approves first pill to help prevent HIV By Matthew Perrone Associated Press

WASHINGTON — The Food and Drug Administration on Monday approved the first drug shown to reduce the risk of HIV infection, the latest milestone in the 30-year battle against the virus that causes AIDS. The agency approved Gilead Sciences’ pill Truvada as a preventive measure for HEALTH healthy people who are at high risk of acquiring HIV through sexual activity, such as those who have HIV-infected partners. The decision comes less than two weeks after the agency approved another landmark product: the first overthe-counter HIV test that Americans can use in the privacy of their homes. The two developments are seen as the biggest steps in years toward curbing the spread of HIV in the U.S., which has held steady at about 50,000 new infections

per year for the last 15 years. An estimated 1.2 million Americans have HIV, which develops into AIDS unless treated with antiviral drugs. And it’s estimated that onefifth, or about 240,000 people, are unaware that they are infected. “I think the combination of self-testing and a medicine that you can take at home to prevent infection could mean a whole new approach to HIV prevention that is a bit more realistic,” said Dr. Demetre Daskalakis of New York University’s Langone Medical Center, who served on the FDA panel that recommended approving Truvada. While a positive step forward, Daskalakis added that Truvada would likely be unavailable for many people without health insurance, who often face the greatest risk of acquiring HIV. Researchers had long sought to create a pill that could help stem the epidemic. Public health advocates said Monday that

Truvada represents a major breakthrough, both as a medical therapy and as a means of expanding other preventive measures. Patients who get a prescrip-

tion for Truvada will be expected to take part in a comprehensive HIV prevention plan, which experts say will enhance the drug’s impact.

Retail sales slump weighs on economy By Anne D’Innocenzio and Martin Crutsinger Associated Press

WASHINGTON — The outlook for the U.S. economy appeared dimmer Monday after a report that Americans spent less at retail businesses for a third straight month in June. The report led some economists to downgrade their estimates for economic growth in the AprilJune quarter. Many now think the economy grew even less than in the first quarter of the year, when it expanded at a sluggish 1.9 percent annual rate. Spending in June fell in nearly every major category — from autos, furniture and appliances to building, garden supplies and department stores. Overall, retail sales slid 0.5 percent from May to June, the Commerce Department said. Retail sales hadn’t fallen for three straight months since the fall of 2008, at the height of the financial crisis. The weak U.S. spending figures were released on the same day that the International Monetary Fund slightly lowered its outlook for global growth over the next two years. Stocks fell after the Commerce report was issued. The Dow Jones industrial average sank 74 points in

early trading. Broader indexes also declined. Later in the day, stocks regained some of their losses. “However hard you look, there’s just no good news in this report,” said Paul Ashworth, chief U.S. economist at Capital Economics. Weakening retail spending could make the Federal Reserve more likely to act further to try to encourage more borrowing and spending by lowering long-term interest rates. The Fed’s policy committee will meet at the end of this month. Most economists don’t expect new Fed action after that meeting. But some said Monday’s Commerce report, coming after three straight months of tepid hiring, makes some Fed action more likely by year’s end. Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke will testify to Congress about the economy today and Wednesday. Despite the lackluster spending in April through June, retail sales were still 4.7 percent higher in the second quarter than in the same period in 2011. And the figures don’t include spending on services, which makes up about two-thirds of consumer purchases. Services range from doctor’s visits and plane tickets to rent payments and utility bills.

Helping village The same kind of village that helps ‘raise a child’ also can benefit residents in their later years.


uring her husband’s presidency Hillary Clinton helped popularize the slogan “It takes a village to raise a child.” The idea is that it takes many people — parents, teachers, churches, neighbors, etc. — to provide all the safety, guidance, supervision, activity and inspiration that goes into raising a healthy child. As it turns out, the same kind of village can be key to supporting people at the other end of their life. Villages that have been created in some other parts of the country — and that a group of local residents would like to see in Lawrence — would provide the kind of help that older people need to safely and happily continue to live in their own homes. A meeting has been set for 7 p.m. Thursday at the East Lawrence Recreation Center to discuss the possibility of working with the Village to Village Network to create a support system for people who need a little help with yard work, transportation or other aspects of maintaining a home. The idea is to pair such residents with volunteers or affordable workers who can help them perform tasks they can’t handle on their own. Although the villages vary widely according to the individual needs of their members, most have executive directors and charge membership fees to finance their operation. The villages oversee volunteer helpers, as well as a network of plumbers, electricians and other workers who are recommended after being prescreened to make sure their services are reliable and reasonably priced. Thursday’s meeting is intended to gauge the interest in forming a village east of Massachusetts in Lawrence, including North Lawrence. It’s an interesting and challenging concept, although it’s too bad this kind of neighbors-helping-neighbors model doesn’t just evolve naturally in a place like Lawrence. While the efforts of local residents to establish a new “village” are laudable, we also wonder whether organizers might be able to work with an existing social service agency, such as the Roger Hill Volunteer Center or Douglas County Senior Services, rather than creating a new agency with its own expenses. Whatever form this idea eventually takes, we wish these residents well. Most people are happier staying in their own homes, and it is far less expensive than more structured settings that often involve government subsidies. These residents deserve applause for their efforts to plan ahead and create a system that will allow them to have greater control over their own living situation as they age.

Romney emphasizes Michigan roots DETROIT — Is Michigan about to flip for Mitt? Let’s stipulate that by the word flip we are not talking about heedless somersaults of ecstasy. This is not that kind of place, and Mitt Romney is not that kind of candidate. Michigan is not particularly flighty. Up north they take their fishing so seriously they pursue it in forbidding wintry conditions. In Ann Arbor and East Lansing, the gridiron game is played with stern, nearly religious devotion. No one doubts that, despite its resurgence, there aren’t many laughs in the auto industry these days, and the state of Detroit is no laughing matter. But suddenly Republicans are feeling good about Michigan. Not giddy, mind you. Just a bit optimistic. It now seems clear that if the GOP wins Michigan, it won’t necessarily win the fall election — but if Romney wins the election, he will very likely win Michigan. That makes for difficult political choices for campaign strategists.

Loyalty creates opening This state is, above all, a place of great loyalty and consistency, and herein lies the Romney opening for 2012. Consider this: For the last five elections, Michigan voted for the Democratic presidential nominee. For the five elections prior to that, Michigan voted for the Republican nominee. Go back three more, and all the elections went to the Democrat. Go back another three, and they’re all Republican years. Connecticut used to be considered the state of steady habits. It turns out that in the last 16 elections, the Nutmeg state voted exactly the way Michigan did: in a 5-5-3-3 pattern that sounds a lot like the 1922 Washington Naval Treaty ratios that limited the capital ships great powers could deploy. Connecticut is reliably Democratic this political season, but not so Michigan.

The Romney name still resonates here, and, if you mention it, many will think you’re referring to the father. George W. Romney still is revered by those of a certain age. Mitt Romney may be the beneficiary.” Politics is not prescriptive, of course, so this doesn’t mean that a big switch (which is to say a pigment change to Republican red in November) is inevitable here. It just means that Michigan almost certainly is more in play this year than it was in 2008, when the economy was crashing, the auto industry was on life support and Barack Obama won the state by about 824,000 votes. Now, to the loyalty element. Romney may have been governor of Massachusetts and a principal figure in salvaging the 2002 Winter Olympic Games in Utah, but his inner compass points to Michigan, where he was reared and where his father was the chief of American Motors and a successful governor.

Family resemblance? The Romney name still resonates here, and, if you mention it, many will think you’re referring to the father. George W. Romney still is revered by those of a certain age. Mitt Romney may be the beneficiary. That is not without precedent in presidential politics, and the evidence can be summed up with two names: Franklin Roosevelt and George W. Bush.

Like so many places, the economy is the major issue here. Only 11 states have a higher unemployment rate than Michigan, where it remains stubbornly at 8.5 percent. In the classic battleground state, Ohio, unemployment is substantially lower, at 7.3 percent. These are not the kind of political entrails that give comfort to an incumbent party. Obama’s camp believes the president’s auto bailout will help bail him out here in November. His supporters happily point out that General Motors and Chrysler have defied the naysayers and enjoyed a robust rebound — and they pound home the point that Romney opposed Obama’s intervention.

Autoworkers less powerful Autoworkers have legendary long memories and strong loyalties, but there are fewer of them than there once were. One consequence of the decadeslong crisis of the carmakers is that unionized workers in automobile plants and related industries constitute a smaller part of the voting base than they did when the great labor leader Walter Reuther ruled Detroit, was a major figure in Democratic politics and for a time met weekly with President Lyndon B. Johnson. That was long ago. Beginning in 1972, the Republicans, assisted by the prominence of Gerald R. Ford of Grand Rapids, began their two-decade dominance of the state. There’s ample evidence to suggest that Michigan’s recent dalliance with the Democrats is ending and that a Republican resurgence is nigh. Rural Republicans are angrier (very) than urban Democrats are content (hardly). The balance of power for the state’s 16 electoral votes is in the suburbs, which this year may not be where the Obama team would like to fight for survival, particularly given the success there of GOP Gov. Rick Snyder in his election battle two years ago.

Today all three branches of state government are firmly in Republican hands. The Real Clear Politics poll average that for weeks gave Obama a lead of 14 percentage points in Michigan now shows him hanging on to a lead of less than 2 percentage points. If an $85 billion auto bailout was worth a measly 2-point advantage, then what can a president with less than four months before Election Day do to save himself here and in places like it, such as Wisconsin and Minnesota? Romney, who once said, inscrutably, that he liked Michigan because its trees are “the right height,” hasn’t always emphasized his roots. But since competing here in the primaries — he defeated former Sen. Rick Santorum of Pennsylvania by 3 percentage points — he has repeatedly reminded voters of his Michigan childhood. “I grew up in Michigan, as you know, born and raised here,” he said in the tourist town of Frankenmuth a month ago, “and if I’m lucky enough to become president, I’ll be the first president in American history to be born in Michigan.” (Gerald Ford, generally regarded as the first Michigan president, was born in Nebraska.)

Days gone by But measuring the impact of Romney’s Michigan roots isn’t easy. Nearly three-fifths of the state’s population has no real memory of the gubernatorial years of Romney’s father. But they may know the elder Romney was perhaps the dominant Republican of the postwar era and the spiritual father of the Rambler automobile. Even so, the election here may come down to this unlikely question, dangerous to Democrats, alluring to Republicans: Is being the son of the man behind the 1963 Motor Trend Car of the Year enough to win the White House? —David M. Shribman is executive editor of the Pittsburgh PostGazette.


Religious justice To the editor: One of the freedoms protected by the First Amendment is the free practice of religion. Before Columbus, there were at least 700 indigenous nations in North America. People had places they considered sacred where they worshiped for the safety of their people and the bounty of agriculture. The Troyville mound where I grew up in Joneville, La., was such a place. It was massive and it was destroyed in 1931 to build a bridge over the Ouachita/Black River. In recent times, people there have tried to re-create the mound realizing the mistakes their forebears made. Such isn’t the case for the Spiro Mound, where many Caddoan artifacts were stolen and are now in museums. Why is it that social justice only exists for Euro-American people and Christian churches? Why is it that federal laws like the Native American Religious Freedom Act of 1978 are gutted by Republicans and highway interests? Don’t think we don’t worship. I participate in pre-Christian Stomp Dances that Christian missionaries tried to wipe out that wouldn’t have been allowed anywhere in the vicinity of the Haskell campus except the wetlands back then, which is the point that the Euro-American academics and courts ignored. There are many other practices that are tribe-specific. Also remember your laws banned our religions in public until the 1970s. I find it troubling that the United Methodist Church who ran Haskell at the beginning has meaningless reconciliation ceremonies for affected Kansas tribes on the Baker campus and is not putting pressure on Baker to not infringe on indigenous first amendment rights.

Who is justice for? Mike Ford, Baldwin City

Repeal hype To the editor: As a small business owner, I worry about the cost of insurance. Recently, much to my surprise, a letter arrived from my health insurance company with a refund for 2011. Why? The Affordable Care Act requires that the company (United Healthcare) refund me a percentage of my cost if it does not spend at least 80 percent of the premiums on health care services. (They spent 74.8 percent) Now, without the Affordable Care Act, I would stupidly pay the premiums and never receive this benefit. Before everyone judges the Act, let’s understand all the benefits to the small business owner struggling to make it in this world. I would never have had this refund and imagine millions of others like myself are receiving checks that must be refunded by Aug. 1. I imagine there are many other aspects we do not understand, and the hype to repeal — without understanding the benefits and changes — is, in my mind, irresponsible. Make decisions on objective fact and stop the hype. I, for one, am very turned off by the so-called repealers who say repeal but offer no alternative. I will vote my stance on this issue. In the mean time, I have an extra $500 to put toward the extra taxes the city will charge me for being a homeowner (sigh) so it can to fund some wreck center or some such. Can’t win for losing. I urge others to understand the facts before judging — not the hype. And enjoy your refund. Denise DeTommaso, Lawrence

Ex-KU assistant Long taking year off By Matt Tait

Kansas University senior center Jeff Withey, who worked the invitation-only Amar’e Stoudemire and LeBron James camps in Chicago and Las Vegas earlier this summer, may respectfully decline an offer to attend the seasonending Adidas Nations camp, Aug. 3-6 in Orange County, CaWithey lif. “I know I’ve been invited, but I do not know if I’m going to go yet because of the European trip,” Withey said of the Jayhawks’ Aug. 6-14 excursion to Switzerland and Paris. “Obviously, I can’t go if we are going to be in Europe.” Withey, a 7-footer from San Diego, said he benefited not only from individual drills but playing in pick-up games at the James (July 6-8) and Stoudemire camps (June 21-24). “I went against Tony Mitchell from North Texas and Mason Plumlee from Duke a lot,” Withey said of the centers. “Both (camps) were beneficial for my development. Amar’e was more drills. LeBron was more going up and down playing. Both of them together I feel was a complete camp.” Withey, as reported recently in the Journal-World, has been working on his outside shot. “One thing I got out of it,” he said of the James camp, “was my 15-foot jumper. I’ve been practicing that. I was able to apply that to the scrimmages, and I felt pretty comfortable with it.” Since returning to Lawrence, Withey has returned to playing regular pick-up games with members of the 2012-13 KU team. Also, the Jayhawks have held their first two (of 10) practices for the upcoming European tour. He has been impressed with the play of KU’s frontcourt newcomers. “Definitely they are strong. They are a lot more physical than I was when I was a freshman, which is great,” Withey said of Perry Ellis, Landen Lucas and Zach Peters. “They are going to have to learn coach Self’s system. Right now, they are starting to get it. That’s the most important thing. They will all be helping us out a lot.” He continued ... “I think Landen is ahead right now. He is kind of getting it faster than everybody else with the

BODYBUILDER TINA HAWKINS LIFTS WEIGHTS TO STRENGTHEN BACK MUSCLES during training on Friday at the Lawrence Athletic Club. Hawkins will compete in a national competition at the end of August in Pittsburgh.

Bodybuilder eyes pro career By Chris Duderstadt

All Tina Hawkins needed were some people to give her confidence. Hawkins attended a national bodybuilding competition as a spectator and was told by a group of International Federation of Body Builders and Fitness judges that she would make a great bodybuilder.

She entered her first competition just six months later. Since then, Hawkins won 2008 Kansas State Championships, placed 16th in her class at the 2010 IFBB North American Championships in Cleveland and won her class at the 2012 Iowa State & Midwest competition. Hawkins is now gearing up for the 2012 IFBB North American Championships, Aug. 31

in Pittsburgh, with the goal of winning her class and, as a result, obtaining her pro card. As Hawkins has progressed with her performances at different competitions since she started bodybuilding in 2008, her training has changed as well. “When I first started, (training was) a lot more extensive,” Please see BODYBUILDER, page 3B

Three years removed from sitting on the sidelines for a season after being fired by San Diego State, former Kansas University offensive coordinator Chuck Long plans to take another year off from coaching. “I’m telling people this is my red-shirt year,” Long told Steve Batterson of the QuadCity Times during a recent interview in Bettendorf, Iowa, at the Legends of Iowa Football Camp. “I never had one in college, but I’m enjoying one now.” Long, the former Heisman Trophy runner-up who served as the leader of KU’s offense for two seasons under former head coach Turner Gill, said he was looking forward to spending the fall watching his son, Zach — also a quarterback — play his senior year of high school ball in Norman, Okla. Although Long coached at two different schools since his days as an offensive assistant at Oklahoma, his family returned to Norman when Long took the job at KU. “I’ll probably help out a bit with the team there,” Long told the paper. “I’m looking forward to that. When you coach, family time is tough to come by. That is one of the reasons this fall will be special.’’ Sources told the JournalWorld that Long also had agreed to a deal with the Big Ten Network to serve as an unpaid, part-time broadcaster for the network this fall. Long will continue to draw his $350,000 annual salary from KU until next summer. Attempts to reach the network for this story were unsuccessful. In addition to spending time back where he starred as a college QB and enjoying extended time with his family, Long made visits to a handful of college and professional programs this offseason. “I’ve had a chance to go out and view a lot of practices and watch how people do things differently from one place to another, picking up things along the way,” Long said. “That’s been good for me. This year is giving me a chance to recharge a little bit and look forward to the future. By the end of the year, I’m sure I’ll be ready to get back at it.”

Big 12 media days nearing Next week will be a week of firsts for new Kansas coach Charlie Weis and new conference schools TCU and West Virginia at the annual Big 12 Conference media days in Dallas. Weis, along with the head Please see FOOTBALL, page 3B

Mariners pound Sanchez, Royals

Orlin Wagner/AP Photo

SEATTLE’S DUSTIN ACKLEY, LEFT, IS CONGRATULATED by Jesus Montero, right, after his solo home run in the sixth inning. The Mariners beat the Royals, 9-4, on Monday in Kansas City, Mo.

KANSAS CITY, MO. (AP) — Casper Wells walked back to the dugout after belting a three-run homer in the first inning and a two-run triple in the second and was already hearing it from his Seattle teammates. The toughest two legs of the cycle were in the books. Piece of cake from here, right? “It was like, geez, thanks guys,” said Wells, whose five RBIs in the first two innings

of the Mariners’ 9-4 victory over the Kansas City Royals on Monday night were a career high. “Do you tell a pitcher when they’re throwing perfect game, ‘Hey, you’re throwing a perfect game?’” Wells said with a smile. “It’s like, ‘Hey, thanks.’” Wells couldn’t manage a hit in his next three at-bats, though the Mariners hardly needed any more offense. They had already battered

Royals starter Jonathan Sanchez for seven runs in 1 1/3 innings and were on their way to their best output since June 20. Justin Smoak also had a two-run homer off Sanchez (1-6), Ichiro Suzuki added an RBI triple and Dustin Ackley homered to pace one of the worst offenses in the American League. “I loved the way they turned around some fastballs,” Seattle manager Eric

Wedge said. “If you want to be a good big league hitter, you have to turn around some fastballs.” Or whatever else Sanchez was throwing. Jason Vargas (9-7) took advantage of Seattle’s instant offense, giving up homers to Salvador Perez and Billy Butler but still lasting six shaky innings to win his second straight game.

LeBron rallies U.S. men past Brazil WASHINGTON (AP) — LeBron James scored 30 points, and the U.S. men’s Olympic basketball team rallied from an early 10-point deficit to beat Brazil, 80-69, on Monday night. President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden watched the Americans get off to a dismal start, then turn it around by holding the Brazilians to two baskets in the second quarter. James helped the U.S. pull away in the final four minutes after they led by only seven, getting his final point on a free throw with 31 seconds left as Obama departed. Kevin Durant added 11 in his hometown for the Americans, who will leave today for Europe to complete their Olympic preparations. They face Britain in Manchester, England, on Thursday before traveling to Barcelona to play Argentina and Spain. It’s a solid exhibition schedule, and this game showed the Americans have some work to do before they get to London. They were just 1-of-12 from three-point range in the first half and struggled offensively when forced to play in the halfcourt. The president met with the men’s and women’s teams, who

Forte, Rice score big, long-term contracts The Associated Press

Ray Rice and Matt Forte got what they wanted Monday: long-term contracts that sometimes elude NFL running backs. Neither Rice nor Forte was enamored of playing under the franchise tag tender in 2012, and negotiations went down to the wire. Then Rice scored big with the Baltimore Ravens, getting $40 million for five years, while Forte took a four-year, $32 million deal with the Chicago Bears. Also getting a longer contract just before the deadline was Jacksonville placekicker Josh Scobee, who will stay with the Jaguars for four years and Rice $13.8 million. Rice led the NFL with 2,068 yards from scrimmage in making his second Pro Bowl. He helped the Ravens to their second AFC title game in his four Forte pro seasons. Although his numbers aren’t quite at Rice’s level, Forte is just as significant a contributor in Chicago’s offense. Had he stayed healthy in 2011, he might have matched Rice, too. Forte made the Pro Bowl for the first time, finishing with 1,487 yards from scrimmage, 997 rushing. He missed the final four games after spraining his knee in a loss to Kansas City. The Bears lost all but one of those games, falling out of playoff contention. Each of them would have played for the $7.74 million franchise tag — the average of the five highest-paid players at running back — had they not gotten the new contracts. Players who are stuck with their one-year tenders are Lions defensive end Cliff Avril, $10.6 million tender; Falcons cornerback Brent Grimes, $10.2 million; Patriots wide receiver Wes Welker and Chiefs receiver Dwayne Bowe, $9.5 million; Cowboys linebacker Anthony Spencer, $8.8 million; 49ers safety Dashon Goldson, $6.2 million; Redskins tight end Fred Davis, $5.446 million; Browns placekicker Phil Dawson, $3.8 million; and Bengals PK Mike Nugent, one year, $2.6 million.

swept the doubleheader from Brazil. He received a loud cheer when he arrived but like the U.S. players got off to a slow start; he needed a second chance before First Lady Michelle Obama would grant him a kiss on the “Kiss Cam� segment. Players were just walking onto the floor for the jump ball when Obama and Biden emerged from the tunnel to take their seats. The start was delayed while they greeted fans, and perhaps the break had the U.S. players out of rhythm at the beginning of the game. James hit two free throws to open the scoring, but the Ameri-

cans didn’t make their first basket until more than 21⠄2 minutes in after falling behind 7-2. Brazil then pushed the lead to 17-7 barely five minutes into the game. Indicative of the way things were going for the Americans, Russell Westbrook came up with a steal near midcourt and was all alone for a layup that he somehow botched. The Brazilians scored the final four points of the period, taking a 27-17 lead with 15.5 seconds left. But the Americans got the tempo they wanted in the second, simply wrestling the ball out of Brazilian hands to create turnovers and fast breaks. A 12-0 run fueled by steals and layups turned an eight-point deficit into a 33-29 lead, and James powered to the basket for the last two baskets of the half as the Americans went into the break with a 37-32 lead. The Americans expected and got a much tougher game than their exhibition opener, a 113-59 rout of the Dominican Republic last Thursday in Las Vegas. Brazil has loads of NBA size to exploit the Americans’ biggest weakness, with Nene of the Washington Wizards, Anderson Varejao of the Cleveland Cavaliers and Tiago Splitter of San Antonio, plus experienced guard play.

Wiggins retains lead after 15th PAU, FRANCE — Pierrick Fedrigo of France won the 15th stage of the Tour de France on Monday while Bradley Wiggins kept the overall lead by staying with his rivals in the main pack far behind. The 99-mile route from Samatan to Pau was mostly flat. But, with fatigue kicking in, the teams with strong sprinters didn’t try to chase down Fedrigo and Christian Vande Velde of the U.S. in the final breakaway. Fedrigo, of the FDJ-BigMat team, captured a Tour stage for the fourth time in his career. He left a group of six riders with about four miles to go. Vande Velde, who rides for Garmin-Sharp, was the only one able to stay close. Vande Velde tried to outsprint Fedrigo in the last 200 yards, but his rival accelerated to the line to become the fourth French rider to win a stage this Tour. Wiggins said he and other riders were looking forward to today’s rest day. “A lot of people are tired now — mentally more than physically,� he told French TV. “It was hard today nonetheless. It was quite hot. And the road was hilly.� Tour organizers completed their tally from Sunday when tacks were thrown on the course. Race director Jean-Francois Pescheux said the 30 top riders had a total of 61 flat tires because of the small nails. Also, hundreds of cars, bikes and motorcycles in the race convoy were affected. He said police are investigating. The rest day comes before two punishing days in the Pyrenees. Those rides, along with a time trial in the next-to-last stage, are likely to determine the winner of the three-week race, which ends July 22 in Paris.


Jays’ Perez sidelined for year NEW YORK — Blue Jays left-hander Luis Perez is going have reconstructive elbow surgery today, an operation that could sideline him for over a year. It’s the second bit of bad news for the Blue Jays’ bullpen in two days. On Sunday, Toronto said closer Sergio Santos needs shoulder surgery. Out since April 21, Santos tried to avoid an operation by rehabbing his shoulder but he felt pain while throwing Saturday.

Big East, Syracuse cut deal for 2013 exit to ACC



San Francisco v. Atlanta 6 p.m. MLB Seattle v. Kansas City 7 p.m. FSN


SYRACUSE, N.Y. — The Big East has reached an agreement with Syracuse University, allowing the Orange to leave the league a year early for the Atlantic Coast Conference. Syracuse announced last year its intention to join the ACC, but under Big East bylaws, the school needed to serve a 27-month exit period. Instead, the Orange now will be allowed to leave on July 1, 2013, and also pay a fee of $7.5 million to depart. “This closes a chapter and opens a new one filled with exciting possibilities for the Big East’s future,� interim commissioner Joe Bailey said. “With the recent addition of eight schools to the Big East, the future for the conference has never been brighter.� Pitt will also leave the Big East for the ACC, but its departure date is uncertain. “We look forward to the new academic and athletic partnerships and the extraordinary competitive opportunities that membership in the ACC offers,� Syracuse athletic director Daryl Gross said. “We are excited about both our final season in the Big East and our long-term future with the ACC.�

Reds’ Votto has torn cartilage CINCINNATI — Reds first baseman Joey Votto will have surgery to repair torn cartilage in his left knee, sidelining him for three to four weeks. The 2010 National League MVP hurt the knee in late June but kept playing. He had a medical exam Monday evening that detected the injury. Votto was out of the starting lineup against Arizona on Monday night, getting a day of rest and a chance to have the knee checked. He went hitless in his first two games back from another All-Star appearance, then had a single and a double during a 4-2 win over St. Louis on Sunday night that pushed the Reds into sole possession of first place in the NL Central. Votto leads the NL in doubles, walks and extra-base hits, batting .342.


‘Paternoville’ name changed STATE COLLEGE, PA. — The Penn State student group that manages the area outside Beaver stadium where students camp out for prime football tickets has changed the name of the makeshift campground from “Paternoville� to “Nittanyville.� The also-renamed Nittanyville Coordination Committee said Monday that student officers decided that the name change would “return the focus to the overall team and the thousands of students who support it.� President Troy Weller said it was a “new era� of Nittany Lion football. On its website, the organization said that “since it was unlikely another coach would stay as long as Coach (Joe) Paterno had, changing the name for each new coach would be impractical.� Students at this year’s encampment plan to donate some fundraising proceeds to a childabuse prevention and treatment center.


Cowboys WR Bryant arrested DALLAS — Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant is free on bond after he was arrested on a misdemeanor family-violence charge. Bryant turned himself in Monday afternoon to police in the southern Dallas suburb of DeSoto. His attorney, Royce West, says Bryant posted $1,500 bond after learning a warrant had been issued for his arrest.


Hawks trade for Bulls’ Korver ATLANTA — The Atlanta Hawks have acquired small forward Kyle Korver from the Chicago Bulls for a trade exception and cash. The 6-foot-7 Korver averaged 8.1 points for the Bulls in 65 games, including seven starts, last season. He ranked 10th in the NBA by making 43.5 percent of his three-pointers.

Kings add point guard Brooks SACRAMENTO, CALIF. — The Sacramento Kings have signed point guard Aaron Brooks. The Kings also waived center Hassan Whiteside on Monday to clear space for Brooks. Phoenix withdrew its qualifying offer to Brooks on July 7, making him an unrestricted free agent. Brooks was acquired from Houston at the 2011 trade deadline and appeared in 25 games with the Suns, averaging 9.6 points and 4.2 assists in 18.9 minutes. He played in China last season.

Vargas went the distance in beating Oakland just before the All-Star break. “When your offense comes out like that,” he said, “you shouldn’t blow the lead.” Acquired this past offseason for outfielder Melky Cabrera, the MVP of the All-Star game at Kauffman Stadium just last week, Sanchez has been nothing short of abysmal all year. He hasn’t gone past the sixth inning since May 28, 2011, and hasn’t allowed fewer than four runs since early June. His alreadybloated ERA rose to 7.76, and he’s drawn the ire of Kansas City fans for his almost nonchalant attitude during and after his outings. “When you work four days in a row to make a start and it doesn’t work, it’s kind of frustrating,” Sanchez said. “What can I say? I’ve got to look forward and see what happens.” Sanchez didn’t even give fans a chance to get comfy Monday night. He walked Ackley on five pitches to start the game, and then watched Suzuki dump a single into


Hawkins said. “I was trying to get the muscle mass I needed for the sport. But like now, I’ll go in in the mornings, and I’ll do 45 minutes to a hour of hard, heavy lifting, and then I go in at nighttime and do currently 45 minutes, which is being bumped up to a hour, which will be bumped up to a hour-anda-half of actual StairMaster and cardio. I’ll do (abdominal work) as well.” While Hawkins focuses on paying attention to how her body feels in relation to her training schedule, she also closely monitors how much and what she eats. “I’ll go from a maintenance-and-building-phase diet to a contest diet, and depending on where I’m


way we play our offense,” Withey said of Lucas, 6-10, 240 from Portland, Ore. “Perry (6-8, 220, Wichita) is doing great right now. Zach can shoot. Perry can shoot. Landen can shoot. Landen has been knocking down 15-foot jump shots. I like them a lot. It’s going to be a fun year. I can’t wait to play with them.” As far as 6-8, 220-pound Chicagoan Jamari Traylor, Withey said, “I don’t consider him a freshman. He’s been here a year. He goes after the balls with a lot of aggression. He’s a miniature T-Rob.” Kevin Young (6-8, 185 senior) can play both small forward and power

left field before Wells belted a three-run homer to left. Jesus Montero added a single and Smoak hit his two-run shot, giving the Mariners a 5-0 lead after just five batters. Sanchez retired the next batter to get through the inning, but gave up another base hit to Brendan Ryan leading off the second. Ackley added a sin-

gle and Wells a two-run triple, giving Seattle a 7-0 lead and sending Sanchez on the slow trudge back to the dugout. He still hasn’t won since his Royals debut on April 8. “They jumped on a couple of high fastballs for home runs in the first,” Royals manager Ned Yost said. “It’s one of those games where they were

on him, put seven runs up early and there’s not much we could do.” All that offense came from a Seattle lineup that came into the night second-to-last in the AL in homers, runs and team batting average (.229), and last in OBP and RBIs. Perez homered to help Kansas City crack the scoreboard in the third inning, and Butler’s two-run shot with two outs gave the Royals’ sullen fanbase reason to hope — at least for the precious few minutes before Seattle came to the plate in the fourth inning.

at as to how many weeks out I am from contest, my diet will change,” Hawkins said. “Like right now, I’m going through seven days of ketosis, which means I can take protein only, and then on Sunday I’ll get to have two cheat meals, at which I can eat anything that I want, and then I’ll go back to a carb cycle, which means I’ll go three days at a time with absolutely no carbs, and then I’ll add in a carbohydrate to my diet, and that will go on until contest.” Strict training and dietary schedules are common among male and female bodybuilders, but in order to get the build of a bodybuilder, Hawkins says there is more pressure on women to take performance-enhancing drugs. Although Hawkins said a number of the women she competes against use some form of testosterone, she maintains that staying clean gives her

more a natural feminine physique. “That’s why I have a lot of people that will comment to me, ‘Wow, you look amazing, and you are very pretty for being a bodybuilder,’” Hawkins said. “I get that a lot, and I do think that it’s because so many women turn and their trainers have them turn to the (Human Growth Hormones) and testosterone to where it does change their look, so it really makes me stand out more being that I am a natural and that I do have that feminine look. That is something that I will never give up. That is one thing to this day that if I can’t do it on my own, I won’t do it.” While Hawkins has no intentions of giving up bodybuilding any time soon, she almost passed up on pursuing a career in bodybuilding, when she was also a player in the Leather and Lace Football League. “I was playing for the

KC Tease,” Hawkins said. “I signed a contract with them, and they actually made me captain of the team, and because of my competing and what went into it, it kind of came down to the deal where it was one or the other. I couldn’t do both, so I quit the KC Tease and just went strictly to bodybuilding.” Now, as Hawkins prepares to compete at the IFBB North American Championships, she says she’d like to motivate others the way she was motivated. “My goal as a bodybuilder is to get my pro card and to basically travel and let people know that (bodybuilding) doesn’t always have to be what (they) think it is,” Hawkins said. “A lot of people feel like a lot of things that I do are out of reach for them, and I just want them to know that they are really not.”

forward, while 6-9, 220 junior Justin Wesley is primarily an inside presence. “Justin is an athlete, a freak athlete. I think Justin right now is one of the favorites to take on that starting role, I think personally,” Withey said. “I don’t know what coach (Bill Self) is thinking. He is an athlete. He goes after the ball. If he keeps progressing like this, I think Justin will be a great asset.”

done. He doesn’t know how to play yet. I saw something where they had Jeff Withey going really high (No. 18 by Goodman; No. 19; No. 30 If Ben and Jeff both go in the lottery next year, I predict we win a lot of games.” Self added of McLemore: “Ben should be as good as anybody we’ve ever had at stealing us extra possessions. I think he’ll be the best defender we’ve ever had. I also think he’s as athletic as anybody we’ve ever had, and he can shoot. Fitting in the pieces and getting him to understand how to play, he’s not quite there, obviously. If he keeps improving at the same rate, he’ll make a lot of money.”

BoSox spoil Youk’s return ————

Boston welcomes star back, slams door late Indians 3, Rays 2 ST. PETERSBURG, FLA. — Zach McAllister shrugged off being struck in his pitching arm by a line drive to finish six solid innings, and Cleveland held on to beat Tampa Bay.

The Associated Press

Red Sox 5, White Sox 1 BOSTON — Adrian Gonzalez spoiled Kevin Youkilis’ return to Fenway Park, hitting a tiebreaking, three-run homer in the eighth inning to lift the Red Sox to a victory over the White Sox on Monday night. Boston traded Youkilis on June 24, sending the three-time All-Star and cash to Chicago for utilityman Brent Lillibridge and a minor-league pitcher. Youkilis went 3-for-4 with two doubles in his first game back at his longtime home. Carl Crawford returned to Boston’s lineup after missing the first 89 games this season because of left elbow and wrist injuries, going 1-for-3 with a walk. Crawford and David Ortiz opened the eighth with consecutive walks against Leyson Septimo (0-1). Gonzalez then hit a drive into the seats above the Green Monster for his seventh homer of the season. Vicente Padilla (3-0) worked one inning for the win. Chicago

CHICAGO THIRD BASEMAN KEVIN YOUKILIS TIPS HIS BATTING HELMET TO FANS as he receives a standing ovation during the first inning against the Red Sox on Monday at Fenway Park in Boston. Youkilis returned to Fenway, where he was a member of the 2004 and 2007 World Series Champion teams, for the first time since being traded. Ibanez connected on a 3-1 pitch from Jason Frasor for a no-doubt drive into the first row of the second deck in right field to snap a 2-all tie. Toronto

Slumping D’backs off Votto-less Reds The Associated Press

Diamondbacks 5, Reds 3 CINCINNATI — Miguel Montero drove in four runs with a bases-loaded double and a solo homer Monday night, leading the Diamondbacks to a win shortly after Cincinnati learned it will have to try to hold onto first place in the NL Central without Joey Votto. An MRI found the AllStar first baseman has torn cartilage in his left knee that will require surgery and sideline him for three to four weeks. The slumping Diamondbacks scored four runs in the first off Bronson Arroyo (4-6), who lasted a season-low three innings. The Reds had gotten impressive starts during a sixgame winning streak that boosted them into first. All-Star Wade Miley (10-5) gave up three runs in 52⁄3 innings for Arizona. J.J. Putz got his 17th save in 20 chances. Arizona Drew ss Blmqst 3b A.Hill 2b MMntr c J.Upton rf Overay 1b CYoung cf GParra lf Miley p Ziegler p Blum ph DHrndz p Putz p Totals

Cardinals 3, Brewers 2 MILWAUKEE — Allen Craig hit a bloop RBI single off Brewers closer John Axford to take the lead, and the Cardinals rallied to beat Milwaukee. Milwaukee was leading 2-0 going into the ninth, but Axford struggled with his control right away, eventually loading the bases with two outs and giving up a game-tying, two-run single to Matt Holliday. Axford (2-6) then was lifted after giving up the single to Craig, which dropped softly into shallow left field. Axford left the game to a steady stream of boos from the crowd. St. Louis

Rockies 5, Pirates 4 DENVER — Dexter Fowler hit a sacrifice fly in the bottom of the ninth inning, and Colorado overcame a tying, three-run homer by Pedro Alvarez to beat the Pirates in a rain-delayed game. Wilin Rosario had two hits and scored the winning run for the Rockies. Rosario led off the ninth with a single against reliever Jason Grilli (1-3) and moved to third on a oneout single by pinch-hitter Jason Giambi. Fowler hit a deep fly to Andrew McCutchen in center field, and Rosario slid home ahead of the throw. Pittsburgh

Explanation of relationship not needed Annie’s Mailbox

Marcy Sugar and Kathy Mitchell

Dear Need: It depends on what they are asking. If they want to know how she’s doing, any variation on “fine” or “same as always” is sufficient. If they want to know more, you can simply say, “You should ask Lena.” You don’t want to create a scene or invite a flurry of follow-up questions, so be vague and noncommittal. You don’t owe people an explanation of your relationship or the details of an estrangement. Dear Annie: My hus-

Turning back the clock on rock ’n’ roll “History Detectives” (8 p.m., PBS, check local listings) enters its 10th season with its 100th episode. That milestone makes a few of its starring sleuths feel a little like relics themselves. The season kicks off with three artifacts linked to rock ‘n’ roll history. As on “Antiques Roadshow,” the experts seem torn between the desire to say, “That’s cool!” a few too many times and the sobering realization that the keepsakes of their groovy youth have been transformed into museum pieces. In tonight’s first segment, historians Elyse Luray and Wes Cowan meet a woman who claims that her father was a private pilot for Bob Dylan; Peter, Paul and Mary; and the Band, back when Dylan changed from acoustic folk to electric blues. Moreover, she claims that Dylan left a guitar in her father’s plane. And that instrument may be the very electric guitar he plugged in at the 1965 Newport Folk Festival, much to the consternation of singer Pete Seeger and other folk purists. In another segment, Tukufu Zuberi investigates a family heirloom that purports to include signed autographs by Beatles John Lennon and Ringo Starr. And Gwendolyn Wright sets out to prove or disprove that a painting/collage purchased for $5 at a thrift store is the work of musical iconoclast Frank Zappa. For the record (and not the kind that spins at 33 1/3), this last segment is the most rewarding. Frank Zappa’s widow, Gail, graciously appears to appraise the artwork and adds some biographical details that provide personal context to the treasure hunt.

Tonight’s other highlights

New clues on “Pretty Little Liars” (7 p.m., ABC Family).

Mark Cuban and Ricky Gervais appear in back-to-back episodes of “Trust Us With Your Life” (8 p.m. and 8:30 p.m., ABC).

Kaldrick wants to make things right with Tariq on the second-season premiere of “The L.A. Complex” (8 p.m., CW).

“Frontline” (9 p.m., PBS, check local listings) visits a Philadelphia public high school where students defy expectations.

Two brothers share a familiar sinking feeling on “Deadliest Catch” (8 p.m., Discovery).

Teri Hatcher guest-stars on “Jane by Design” (8 p.m., ABC Family).

The murders of two therapists defy analysis on “Rizzoli & Isles” (8 p.m., TNT).

Hospital drama on “NY Med” (9 p.m., ABC).

“Real Sports With Bryant Gumbel” (9 p.m., HBO) profiles the Dodgers’ Matt Kemp.

band, “Mark,” and I have been together for 12 years. It’s a second marriage for both of us. His ex embezzled $30,000 and forged Mark’s name on her credit cards, which she maxed out and he paid for. Their daughter, now 35, calls her father only when she wants money. Last year, after a health scare, we made our funeral arrangements. Mark’s son died 20 years ago, and at that time, he bought three adjoining cemetery plots. When his ex divorced him, she got the house, car and everything else, but Mark got the burial plots. When his ex and his daughter saw our prepared headstone next to his son’s grave, they became hysterical. Annie, I am being cremated, and my ashes are being put in Mark’s headstone. The third cemetery plot is for any family member who


For Tuesday, July 17, 2012: This year you would express your innate caring if you could move past a relationship or a person who can be very controlling. You might express your anger at times, but your best bet is simply not to engage. If you are single, you attract your share of admirers. If you are attached, try not to put the blame on the other person. 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)  Tap into your subconscious and listen to your dreams. A partner could be much sourer than you think. Tonight: Head home. Order in. Taurus (April 20-May 20)  You could be wondering why others are so reactive right now. Many people are stressed out. Tonight: Hang out with friends. Gemini (May 21-June 20)  Be aware of a possessiveness stemming from your insecurity. You might want to rethink your choices. Tonight: Do errands on the way home. Cancer (June 21-July 22)  Your mood could change radically before you find the right one. Perhaps you need to express your hurt before it builds to this point. Tonight: All smiles. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)  You might want to play the role of recluse for a bit. You don’t need to explain to everyone the “who, what, where and why” of a situation. Tonight: Enjoy the benefits of this vanishing act. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)  You see an opportunity that you decide to jump on. You cannot be too sure of yourself, as you will get enough flak and

might want it. They are solely in Mark’s name. Apparently, the ex wanted to be buried next to their son and doesn’t want me in the picture at all. Now Mark’s daughter barely has anything to do with her father. We feel bad about this, but don’t believe we did anything wrong. Any suggestions, or do we just ignore all the drama? — A Grave Situation Dear Grave Situation: Ignore it. Unless Mark is willing to sell the adjacent plot to his ex-wife, she has no claim on it. If she wants to be buried near her son, she should look at nearby plots and see what she can arrange.

questioning to make even the most confident people back off. Tonight: Zero in on your friends. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)  Take charge of a situation. It appears that if you don’t, no one else will. Tonight: Could go into the wee hours. Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)  Imagine what could be possible if you were to become willing to break a pattern. Someone might be taken aback by your decisions. Tonight: Let your imagination rock and roll. Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)  Interact with each individual directly. You might need to relax in a meeting if you really want an important idea to go through. Too much pushing could bring a negative reaction. Tonight: Let go of a problem. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)  You could be challenged by many people today, but others’ attitudes come from the fact that you can be quite sassy. Let others have their way, and you will note a trend toward more positive interactions. Tonight: So many people, so many choices. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)  Pace yourself, as you have a lot of ground to cover. You could be overwhelmed by the options that appear. Tonight: Squeeze in a visit to the gym and some exercise. Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)  Your sense of humor and delightful manner appeal to nearly everyone. While some people might be testy and difficult, you’ll walk away from the hassles. Tonight: Live it up. — The astrological forecast should be read for entertainment only.

Dear Annie: My sister, “Lena,” has been a problem for decades. She abused her children physically and continues to abuse the rest of the family emotionally. She is haughty and manipulative and lies to everyone. Her own kids want nothing to do with her. I am the last person left in the family who talks to Lena. She constantly expects me to run errands for her, loan her money and take care of her when she is sick, which is always. She never reciprocates. This is now affecting my blood pressure, and my children want me to cut her off. I’m ready. But if I do this, it will make certain social situations awkward. We move in the same circles. It would make it easier to walk away if I had some tools to use. What do I say when people ask about Lena? — Need the Break
