INTERNATIONAL STUDENT EVALUATOR JON K. MURPHY, RIGHT, works with Sasha Givotovsky, 11, left, and his sister Nina, 13, with some English as a Second Language screening tests Tuesday at the Lawrence school district’s Welcome and Enrollment Center.
Center helps parents enroll new students in district smoothly A
fter living in Connecticut, working in New York and adopting children from Russia, Laura Kirk is feeling right at home as she signs up her kids for classes this fall in Lawrence. Thank you, Welcome and Enrollment Center. “They’ve been fantastic,” said Kirk, an actress, director and producer who just moved to Lawrence last month, after having grown up herself in nearby Lecompton. “They obviously have a process here that works really well.” Kirk’s kids, Nina and Sasha Givotovsky, are among more than 200 students new to the Lawrence school district who already have visited the center to enroll for the 2011-12 year.
Dozens more are on the way. With classes set to begin Aug. 17, district administrators plan to be plenty busy during the coming weeks at the center, entering its second year of providing consolidated enrollment services. The center, at 110 McDonald Drive, aims to provide a smooth, easy-to-understand system for students and families as they enter the district: one place to fill out forms, provide immunization records, take assessment tests and pay fees. One place to get things done. “It’s like one-stop shopping,” said Rick Gammill, the district’s director for special operations, safety and transportation, who
Time to enroll Any students entering the Lawrence school district for the first time, or after a break of at least one year, must enroll at the district’s Welcome and Enrollment Center. How: Make an appointment by calling 330-1921. When: The center is open from 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. weekdays throughout the school year, but be aware: Slots fill up fast as the start of school approaches Aug. 17. “If you have a third- through 12th-grader, plan on an hour,” says Kim Young, who runs the center. For K-2, figure 20 to 30 minutes. Some evening appointments also are available. Where: Southeast corner of the district’s headquarters complex, 110 McDonald Drive. What to bring: Student’s birth certificate, immunization record, proof of residency in the district (such as a recent utility bill that includes a parent’s or guardian’s name and address). “We do not accept a driver’s license,” Young says. Children ages 5-9 who are entering a Kansas school for the first time also must have documentation of a health physical. And don’t forget the kids: They’ll need to complete enrollment screening. Fees: Fee payments also are due, and can be paid in cash, by check or using a credit card. Overall enrollment fees are unchanged from last year.

Traffic calming devices not at top of city’s roadwork priorities list By Chad Lawhorn email@example.com
Traffic Safety Commissioner Jim Woods knows better than most how emotional residents can get when it comes to motorists speeding through their neighborhoods. T h e c i t y a dv i s o r y b o a rd h e serves on is the front line for battles about everything from traffic circles, speed humps and other devices meant to “calm” traffic and reduce the likelihood that pedestri-
an versus vehicle accidents will occur. Usually the arguments involve some common elements: children, pedestrians, oftentimes a school and always lead-footed drivers. “Neighborhoods are always wanting things to slow down traffic,” Woods said. And oftentimes they get it. Well, they get it approved anyway. The Traffic Safety Commission — and ultimately the Lawrence City Commission — have approved 18 traffic
calming projects since early 2004. But as neighbors are learning, getting a project approved and getting it built are two different things. “A lot of times,” Woods said, “we’ll tell them that we’ll approve what they want, but then we will tell them we don’t know when it will get done. It might be a year, or it might be five years. Then their faces get kind of long.” Please see TRAFFIC, page 2A
Several police agencies on the East Coast had been frustrated for years, unable to catch a serial rapist wanted in four states. Just like the suspected serial rapist in the Lawrence and Manhattan areas, an unknown assailant had sexually assaulted numerous women, but had eluded authorities for more than a decade. But last March, authorities in Connecticut finally caught up with Aaron Thomas, suspected of being the “East Coast Rapist.” Police have connected Thomas to at least a dozen sexual assaults since 1997 in four states: Virginia, Connecticut, Rhode Island and Maryland. A law enforcement task force relied on an unlikely tool to catch Thomas: an intensive media campaign. While police had DNA, a physical description and other specific details about the rapist, the case languished. In 2010, the task force began looking for new ideas to aid their efforts, said Detective John Kelly of the Fairfax County Police in Virginia. The first step was releasing more information to the public. Kelly and the task force began working more closely with media outlets, taking reporters to the scenes of the crimes and releasing information that often is not shared in ongoing investigations. “We gave them full access to the case,” Kelly said. Police hoped that one of the details released would encourage someone with information to come Please see RAPIST, page 2A
CASE FACTS What’s known about the serial rapist in Lawrence and Manhattan: ● Sometimes a knife or gun is used during the attacks. ● At least the first five crimes in Manhattan occurred in second-floor apartments. ● Victims’ ages ranged from late teens to late 20s. ● Some victims were college students. ● The first three crimes occurred at the same apartment complex in Manhattan. ● All crimes occurred during some sort of college break. ● All of the crimes — except one — occurred between the hours of 2 a.m. and 5 a.m. ● One incident involved two victims. ● No information has been provided by police about any forensic evidence left at crime scenes. ● The last known connected assault occurred in Lawrence in November 2008.
Blue-green algae causes unsafe conditions at Perry Lake By Shaun Hittle firstname.lastname@example.org
Energy smart: The Journal-World makes the most of renewable resources. www.b-e-f.org
Ken Wade, operations project manager with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Kansas City district, has spent the week warning the public about high levels of blue-green algae at Perry Lake. Wade and other officials have put up posters, sent press releases and even went on Facebook reminding people about the unsafe water conditions at the lake. After testing last week by the Kansas Department of Health and Environment, the two swimming beaches at the lake — the Perry Park Corps of Engineers Swim Beach and
the Perry State Park Beach — have been closed. The Rock Creek Arm and the Old Town Public Use Area are also under a warning issued by the KDHE. Under the warning, visitors to these sections of the lake: ● Shouldn’t drink the water and should avoid wading, swimming or other activities where the body comes into contact with the water. ● Should clean fish well and eat only the fillet. The rest should be discarded. ● Keep pets from having contact with the water or from drinking it. Dogs seem particularly sensitive to blue-green algae and could even die from it.
When high levels of blue-green toxins are swallowed, come in contact with the skin or airborne droplets are inhaled, people can have intestinal, respiratory or skin irritation problems. In animals, symptoms include lethargy, vomiting, diarrhea, convulsions, difficulty breathing and general weakness. The KDHE noted that while two swimming beaches are closed, the park’s marinas and businesses around the lakeside remain open. Other recreational activities, such as camping, are still available at the lake. Also, the drinking water and shower facilities at the lake are safe and not affected by the algae.
Wade said the algae situation has caused decreased attendance at the lake this weekend. The KDHE will test the water again today, he said, because weather conditions can affect the bluegreen algae levels. Blue-green algae levels occasionally spike, aided by hot weather and low winds. In addition, less water is being released from the lake because of flooding concerns, which creates the “ideal situation for the bluegreen algae,” Wade said. — Reporter Shaun Hittle can be reached at 832-7173. — Reporter Christine Metz contributed to this report.

microsurfacing to the area. Speed humps on Carmel Drive near 18th Street in west Lawrence also will be done as the road receives a new microsurface. David Woosley, the city’s traffic engineer, said that’s the city current plan of attack to address the backlog of projects. When the city has a construction crew already in the area for a major maintenance project, it will try to complete the traffic calming project as well. “But if traffic calming is the only work that would be under way in the area, that is what we have a real hard time funding right now,” Woosley said.
CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1A
Playing ‘catch-up’ Five years have come and gone for several of the projects. The city’s top-ranked traffic calming project, a plan for five traffic-calming circles for the University Place neighborhood north and west of 19th and Louisiana streets, was approved in June 2004 after neighbors fought hard for the project. It remains uncompleted. In fact, of the top-f ive ranked projects — the city scores them based on speeds, crashes and other factors — four of them have been on the list for five or more years. Two of them, the University Place project and one on East 13th Street, have had some work done, but none of them has been completed. Mayor Aron Cromwell said there is a pretty simple reason: If forced to choose, the majority of residents would rather have their streets smoother than slower. That’s not to say that the city still doesn’t hear from neighbors urging more traffic calming devices. But they hear from a lot of resident urging fewer potholes. “We haven’t decided to make those traffic calming projects a priority yet,” Cromwell said. “One of the big reasons is because we have been playing catch-up for the last couple of years on just routine street maintenance. In past years, we didn’t do some of that maintenance when we needed to, and now we feel like we have to play catch-up. “We need to put every dime we can into that effort.” Understanding neighbors But here’s something as surprising as motorists obeying a yellow light in Lawrence: Neighbors seem to be understanding. “I really haven’t heard any complaints at all about it,” said Gwen Klingenberg, president of the Lawrence Association of Neighborhoods, and also a resident of a neighborhood that has an uncompleted traffic calming project. “The city is trying. They are doing it slowly, but we understand that.” The city is doing some work on the projects. Of the 18 projects on the list, two are expected to be completed by the end of the summer. In North Lawrence, work to add speed humps on North Ninth Street between Walnut and Locust streets was done while crews were doing

oversees the center. “We try to provide a resource so that parents don’t have to enroll three different students in three different schools. Instead, they go to one place.” In opening the center last year, district officials aimed to create a “revenue-neutral” operation designed to boost services for parents, ease administrative pressures at individual schools, and — perhaps most of all — make things easier for kids as they enter new schools for the first time. “The principals, all they have to do is worry about welcoming the students,” said Vanessa Sanburn, a member of the Lawrence school board who approved creation of the
Funding it all The city doesn’t have an official cost estimate for completing all of the projects on the list. But Woosley said most traffic calming projects are tens of thousands of dollars, not hundreds of thousands. “If we had $30,000 to $50,000 a year for a few years, we could come up with a plan to get through the list,” Woosley said. Another way to get a traffic calming project done is to pay for it yourself. Kansas University recently won approval for several new traffic calming devices near campus by agreeing to provide the $60,000 in funding. The project expected to be completed before KU’s fall semester begins will build two speed cushions near West Campus and Stratford roads and two more near 11th Street and West Campus Road. So far, neighborhoods haven’t started to band together to offer the city funding for their projects. Woods doesn’t expect that to happen, and he also said he can understand how it has been difficult for the city to provide funding for the projects too. But he said the Traffic Safety Commission still gets requests for traffic calming projects, and it can be a little frustrating to deal with them. “I’ll be listening to parents talk about a project that is needed by a school, and I know that a lot of them won’t see this project built until their kids are out school,” Woods said. City commissioners are set to complete their 2012 budget deliberations in 2012. So far, there has been no serious discussion of providing funding for the backlog of traff ic calming projects. — City reporter Chad Lawhorn can be reached at 832-6362.

center. “When the students come to the school for the first time, it’s really focused on the kids. And that sets up a good start for the experience that the children have at that school.” At the center last week, Kirk applauded the professionalism and support she’d already received: paperwork provided ahead of time so that she could turn it in upon arrival; clear explanations of expectations and services; and helpful insights about academics and sports and activities and everything else available in the district so that Nina and Sasha can get excited about all the opportunities they have to look forward to.

OFFICERS AND EMERGENCY WORKERS from Lawrence Police Department, Lawrence-Douglas County Fire Medical, and Douglas and Jefferson counties conducted a search for a group of people along the Kansas River from Lawrence to Lecompton on Sunday evening. A concerned parent alerted Douglas County dispatchers about 7:30 p.m. after the group, which was comprised of mostly teenagers believed to be from the Perry area, had not contacted them and was not responding to cellphone calls. Emergency crews sent a search boat upstream from Lawrence at 8:45 p.m. and located the group, which was on a float trip. Crews removed fifteen people safely from the water at Riverfront Park by 10:30 p.m. None were injured or appeared to be in any danger.
Revenues short of ed board request By John Milburn Associated Press Writer
TOPEKA — Kansas policymakers are expected to learn in the coming days just how well they did at cutting government spending and collecting revenue in the last fiscal year. Preliminary numbers from legislative staff suggest the figure could have as much as $175 million in the bank as Kansas enters fiscal year 2012. That’s a far cry from where the state was just six months ago when Gov. Sam Brownback and the Republican-controlled Legislature was staring at a deficit that approached $500 million. Brownback and legislators trimmed spending by close to $800 million in the state’s overall $14 billion budget from the previous year, including reducing funds for public schools by $232 per student. The cuts made dent in the extra money legislators had agreed to spend on public education in response to a 2006 Kansas Supreme Court ruling that the state’s system for funding schools was out of whack and needed fixed. Now, with revenues improving, the State Board of Education is asking that those funds be restored. But members know that’s a tall order given the atmosphere in the Statehouse firmly in

forward, Kelly said. Maybe a neighbor would recognize the police sketch of the suspect, or someone would remember a co-worker with the rapist’s characteristic chipped tooth. A website, eastcoastrapist.com, also helped spread the word, detailing the case details, providing contact information for tips and offering a $25,000 reward. In less than 48 hours of going online, the site received more than 54,000 visits. “The response was tremendous,” Kelly said. In cooperation with the FBI, a highway billboard provided motorists driving from Virginia to Rhode Island with a police sketch of the rapist and directed them to the website for more information. The media campaign paid off. Aided by a tip from an acquaintance who’d seen the extensive coverage of the case, police arrested Thomas in New Haven, Conn. In police custody, Thomas
the austere mode. “We can recommend until the cows come home and advocate for funding the law, but it’s not going to happen,” she said. “We can take this moral position, but they’re not going to listen to us anyway,” said board member Sue Storm, a former legislator from Overland Park. Brownback has said he wants to lower taxes in Kansas to encourage business growth, suggesting cuts in the income tax rates to spur growth. “To grow the state longterm we need a fundamentally new tax code that rewards investment and makes us more competitive globally for entrepreneurs and capital. That’s how we’ll grow and keep jobs for generations to come,” he said recently. There have been recent employment gains with announcement of a new candy factory, information technology and wind energy companies coming to Kansas, bringing more than 1,000 direct and indirect jobs. Revenue Secretary Nick Jordan, a former state senator, will be leading a study committee looking at tax reform ahead of the 2012 legislative session. Legislators had proposals of their own this past session to eliminate the corporate income tax, which generates an average of close to
$200 million annually. Some state board members said asking for a smaller amount equal to inflation, or about $85 million, was more realistic and would improve relations with legislators. “The reality is that our economy is in recession,” said Walt Chappell of Wichita. “If we send over another budget that says fund the law, it’s going to be dead on arrival.” Kansas spends roughly half of its budget on K-12 schools, more than $3.1 billion in the current fiscal year out of $6 billion in state general tax revenues. However, declining state revenues caused by the Great Recession forced legislators to trim education spending to make ends meet. Federal stimulus dollars allowed the state to reduce the state’s share of school spending in fiscal year 2010 and 2011, freeing close to $200 million that was able to go to other government programs. Those federal funds expired on June 30, meaning legislators and Brownback had the choice of either raising new revenues to replace the federal money or cut school spending. The decision was to cut the base perstudent rate by $232 per pupil, going from $4,012 to $3,780. Other programs, such as $35,000 to support teaching agriculture in the classroom, also went by the wayside.
spoke of the increasing pressure he felt from the media scrutiny and police marketing campaign. Using a media campaign to catch fugitives has also been successful in generating tips that have lead to the capture of 40 fugitives wanted by the FBI, said Lindsay Godwin, agency spokeswoman. “This has worked for us,” said Godwin. The FBI has utilized digital billboards, Facebook and Twitter to help spread the word about a fugitive. Godwin said that such a campaign led to the recent capture of James “Whitey” Bulger, who’d been wanted on murder and organized crime charges for 16 years. Those intense media campaign tactics differ sharply from those employed by authorities trying to catch the northeast Kansas serial rapist. Lawrence and Riley County Police have released few details about the basics of each sexual assault connected to the local serial rapist. When contacted for this article, representatives from both the Lawrence and the Riley County Police said they
could not release any other details about the case or comment on investigative tactics. In addition, the Attorney General’s Office, which is coordinating the investigation, has declined the Journal-World’s repeated interview requests. Lucy Caldwell, spokeswoman for the Fairfax, Va., County Police, cautioned that decisions about what information to release to the public and the media should be made on a case-by-case basis, and authorities must be careful not to jeopardize future prosecution efforts. The basics of the East Coast Rapist and the local serial rapist are similar — more than a dozen rapes over several years in multiple locations. But police can’t necessarily use the same marketing tactics her department used to catch the East Coast Rapist, said Caldwell, who reserved comment on the tactics or strategy of police in Kansas. “Every case is so individual,” Caldwell said. — Reporter Shaun Hittle can be reached at 832-7173.

Killing of adviser another blow to leader Gunmen strapped with explosives killed a close adviser to President Hamid Karzai and a member of parliament Sunday in another insurgent strike against the Afghan leader’s inner circle. Jan Mohammed Khan was an adviser to Karzai on tribal issues and was close to the president, a fellow Pashtun. His killing, which the Taliban claimed responsibility for, came less than a week after the assassination of Ahmed Wali Karzai, the president’s half brother and one of the most powerful men in southern Afghanistan. Two men wearing suicide bomb vests and armed with guns attacked Khan’s home in the western Kabul district of Karti Char, said Defense Ministry official Gen. Zahir Wardak. Khan, who was governor of the Pashtun-dominated Uruzgan province in the south from 2002 until March 2006, was shot along with Uruzgan lawmaker Mohammed Ashim Watanwal, the official said.
Brownback wants to change tax structure By Scott Rothschild firstname.lastname@example.org
TOPEKA — Gov. Sam Brownback says he wants to change the state’s tax system, and he has tasked Kansas Department of Revenue Secretary Nick Jordan to come up with some recommendations. “The bottom line is, how do we grow the economy?” Jordan said. Asked what he is looking at, Jordan said, “It’s all on the table.” So far, Jordan has formed a group that has met a couple of times. The group includes Richard Cram, head of policy
and research at the Revenue Department; Steve Stotts, director of taxation; the leaders of the House and Senate tax commitBrownback tees; and various state agency heads, according to revenue public information officer Jeannine Koranda. More people will be pulled into the discussion as talks continue, Jordan said. Jordan said he hopes to present several tax-change options to
Brownback this fall, which would give the governor time to have a plan ready for the 2012 legislative session that starts in January. Brownback, a Republican, is champing at the bit, mentioning several times the need for changing the state structure, specifically to reduce the state income tax. Brownback also has noted in speeches that Kansas is losing population to states such as Texas, which has no state income tax. But several tax studies note that Kansas’ income tax is the most progressive portion of its tax structure. During the last legislative ses-
sion, House Republicans passed a plan to make permanent reductions in income taxes when state revenues grow. But critics of the plan in the Senate said it would have crippled needed services that have already been hurt by recent budget cuts. Meanwhile, Democrats, who are in the minority in the House and Senate, have argued for fairer taxes by closing sales tax exemptions. But attempts to shut down these exemptions have failed to gain any traction. — Statehouse reporter Scott Rothschild can be reached at 785-423-0668.

Egypt PM names new ministers
Educators brush up on research
Egypt’s prime minister named 12 new Cabinet members Sunday in a reshuffle under pressure from protesters demanding a purge of remnants of the former regime, state television reported. A lawyer for Hosni Mubarak, meanwhile, said the ousted president had suffered a stroke and was in a coma — a claim that was quickly denied by Mubarak’s lead doctor. The former president is set to face trial in about two weeks on charges he ordered the killings of protesters during the 18-day uprising that ousted him on Feb. 11. A conviction could carry the death penalty and activists suspect his lawyer may be using health problems as a ruse to sway public opinion and perhaps even win amnesty. State TV dubbed the new government lineup the “Revolution Cabinet.” Most of the ministers were relative newcomers, clearly a way to avoid further criticism by the protesters.

Pres. candidate: Banning mosques OK Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain said Sunday that communities have a right to ban Islamic mosques. Appearing on “Fox News Sunday,” the former Godfather’s Pizza CEO said protests and legal challenges to a planned mosque in a Tennessee city are an example of local residents pushing back. Cain said his view doesn’t amount to religious discrimination because he says Muslims are trying to inject Shariah law into the U.S. Shariah is a set of core principles that most Muslims recognize and a series of rulings from religious scholars. It covers many areas of life and different sects have different versions and interpretations of the code. Asked if his view could lead any community to stand up in opposition to a proposed mosque, Cain replied, “They could say that.” He pointed to opposition to the planned mosque in Murfreesboro, Tenn., as an example.

Rice Foundation continues legacy of ‘bettering community’ By Chris Hong email@example.com
Raymond Rice left a lasting legacy on the Lawrence and Douglas County community. He helped found Douglas County Bank. He preserved part of the Baldwin Woods, a section of virgin forest in Baldwin City, purchasing the land to prevent a development project. When City Hall relocated from the Watkins Building, 1047 Mass., Rice used his legal acumen to secure the site for the Douglas County Historical Society . Today, 37 years after his death, he is still contributing to the community through the Ethel and Raymond F. Rice Foundation, which has donated more than $14 million to charitable organizations. Rice formed the foundation after

his wife, Ethel, died in 1972 to extend his philanthropic interests past his lifetime. “His parents were always interested in bettering the community in which they lived, and Mr. Rice carried on that tradition, as did Mrs. Rice,” said James Paddock, an original trustee and president of the Rice Foundation. Paddock said the foundation focuses on donating to organizations that assist the Douglas Coun-

ty community. Last year, the foundation donated $586,000 to 27 local g roups, including Lawrence Humane Society, Lawrence Memorial Hospital and Douglas County Historical Society. Steve Nowak, director of the historical society, said the foundation donated $15,000 to the historical society last year. The donations are used to prepare materials for exhibition. “It’s a tremendous benefit for us,” Nowak said. “It allows us to do the type of work we need to develop material as an educational tool.” The foundation funds 14 scholarships for law students at Kansas University. The scholarships, established in 1979, are awarded to Kansas residents with promising academic and leadership abilities. Alyssa Boone, a scholarship recipient from Wichita, said the burden of paying off student loans would have
limited what she could do during and after school. “It let’s you pursue anything you want,” Boone said. The Rice Foundation also provides scholarships at Baker University, Kansas State University and Oberlin College, the Ohio school where Rice received his undergraduate degree. Rice, who was born in Cortland, Ohio, moved to Lawrence in 1907 to attend the KU law school and established a law practice in town after graduation.

Kansas University Hospital, KU Medical Center and KU Physicians are preparing to begin negotiations on a new affiliation agreement, a process that hospital and university leaders say should go much more smoothly than the last time. The groups’ first affiliation discussions became bitter and contentious at times over issues such as how other hospitals in Kansas City would be able to use the “KU Cancer Center” brand. KU Hospital provides clinical services and patient care and is affiliated with KU Medical Center, which provides research and education for physicians, nurses and allied health professionals. KU Physicians is the group of doctors that practice at KU Hospital and belong to the KUMC faculty. After the groups’ last negotiations in late 2007, the parties had agreed on a number of issues. For example, they agreed that the amount of money paid by the hospital to KUMC and KU Physicians would increase from $31 million per year to $46 million per year. The parties have some time before the current agreement expires on Sept. 30, 2012. The sides will likely begin meeting later this year, said Bob Page, CEO of KU Hospital. Hospital leaders, fresh off a newly minted merger with the Kansas City Cancer Center, haven’t had much time yet to devote to thinking about what kinds of issues might arise in the new negotiations. “It’s a good question,” Page said. “I don’t know yet.” He said that given the existing good relationship between KUMC and the hospital, he didn’t expect discussions to be contentious this time around. Barbara Atkinson, executive vice chancellor of KUMC, agreed. “We’ve worked with this partnership, and as you can see, we’ve made huge progress,” she said. “We now have a track record of really working together, which didn’t exist before.” — Higher education reporter Andy Hyland can be reached at 832-6388.

A few years ago, there was talk about moving the train route out past the airport. What ever happened to that? And I thought there was going to be a “quiet zone” in North Lawrence so the trains wouldn’t blast their horns all night long. What happened to that initiative?
As far the train route goes, Public Works Director Chuck Soules said the issue was initiated by the railroad and not the city. There has been no discussion on this topic for several years. The “quiet zone” in North Lawrence was in a proposal the city submitted to the Kansas Department of Transportation, and KDOT did not fund the proposal. The city does not have funding to proceed with the proposal, according city spokeswoman Megan Gilliland.

Kansas commemorates its Ice Age heritage By Jan Biles The Topeka Capital-Journal
B L U E R A P I D S — Several months ago, Colorado resident and Blue Rapids native George Callison received a phone call from Pat Osborne, a member of the Blue Rapids Historical Society. She told Callison about the Kansas Sampler Foundation’s project to identify the Eight Wonders of Kansas Geography and asked him for suggestions in the Blue Rapids area. It didn’t take long for Callison, a zoologist, paleontologist and geologist, to name his pick: the gigantic glaciers that formed the area’s landscape more than 1.5 billion years ago. Today, the town of 1,022 about 40 miles north of Manhattan has embraced its Ice Age heritage and is raising money to erect a monument designed by Callison that will celebrate the glaciers that formed the rivers and rocky landscape of the area and ultimately contributed to the state’s economy. A former resident has already earmarked $10,000 for the monument. An additional $40,000 is needed to complete the project. Callison, 71, who lives in Grand Junction, Colo., said Blue Rapids and northeast Kansas were ravaged twice by gigantic glaciers in the past several thousands of years. “As the last of the glaciers melted and retreated, it left a landscape denuded of vege-
tation but covered with boulders, gravel, sand and mud brought down 300 miles from the southern Minnesota area,” he explained in an email. “These boulders are the oldest rocks in Kansas. ... The gravel and sand form the basis for many aggregate mining companies, and the mud made wonderfully rich soils for productive farming. Meltwater from the glaciers carved the basic patterns for the local rivers.” Callison was a natural choice to design the Ice Age monument. He earned a bachelor’s degree in zoology from Kansas State University in 1962 and a master’s degree in zoology in 1965 and doctorate degree in zoology in 1969, both from Kansas University. He taught and conducted field research in vertebrate paleontology for 33 years and helped design nature parks and touring natural history exhibitions throughout the world for 12 years. His “Dinosaurs Alive and In Color” exhibition drew the most visitors for an exhibit at the Smithsonian. The 15-foot-high monument — which will be erected in Fountain Park in Blue Rapids’ public square — will focus on three concrete pylons that emerge from a circular concrete platform with exposed aggregate of sand and gravel. “It’s reminiscent of the front of glaciers,” Callison said, adding the monument also will include boulders that appear to be “eroding out
of the concrete platform.” Interpretative signs will be affixed to the pylons. Coolblue and white up-lighting will dramatize the monument’s appearance at night, and a sound playback system with a narrative and sound effects of the Ice Age will be available to visitors. Callison said the monument will require little maintenance and be durable enough to resist ordinary vandalism and skateboarders. “We hope to begin (construction) in July or August,” he said, adding a dedication ceremony is planned once the monument is completed. Mike Bailey, of Bailey Construction, is the contractor for the project, he said. Blue Rapids resident Phillip Osborne will oversee the project. The boulders — about 4 to 5 feet in diameter and weighing 160 pounds per cubic foot — will come from a pasture owned by Joe Warders. Callison said he hopes the monument will instill more pride in the community and “start a cascade of events that would be positive” for Blue Rapids. Pat Osborne said she hopes the monument, coupled with the Blue Rapids Museum, will attract more visitors to the small town. The museum, which is undergoing a $20,000 remodeling project, displays memorabilia unique to the area’s heritage. “I think it will help us keep at the forefront of the tourism business,” she said.
Bennington man uses encyclopedic knowledge to write books By Gary Demuth The Salina Journal
BENNINGTON — A voracious reader from childhood, Rod Beemer remembered the day in 1960 when he purchased an entire set of the Encyclopedia Britannica with his own money. It was a proud moment until his mother, a teacher, found out how much her 18year-old son had spent on the multivolume set — nearly $700. “My mom told me she could have bought the books for half the price,” he said. Beemer wanted to be a writer, so he considered the encyclopedias to be a good investment. Now, more than 50 years later, the longtime Bennington resident has used his encyclopedic knowledge to write and publish a number of books, ranging from short story collections to histories of collectible tractors to an epic historical nonfiction look at how extreme weather affected 19th century prairies and pioneers. His latest book project? General George Armstrong Custer. “It’ll deal with his entire career after the Civil War on the prairies and Plains,” said Beemer, 69. To research a chapter in his book, Beemer went to Oklahoma in 2009 and traced the route that Custer and his 7th Cavalry took from Fort Sill west to the Texas Panhandle in 1869 to fight the Southern Cheyenne and ultimately rescue two Kansas women who had been captured by the
Indian warriors. “I tried to follow his route 140 years after he left Fort Sill,” Beemer said. “I wanted to find out about his rescue of those women, who had been taken in 1868 at the Solomon River and at the Republican River.” Beemer was a guest speaker June 18 at the Little Big Horn Associates annual conference in Oklahoma City. His presentation, “Chasing Custer,” described Custer’s 1869 campaign, which Beemer said was a success despite his troops enduring hardships that included dying horses and depleted rations. “He was a fighter, and so many of the officers then were timid,” he said. “If they sent him in to fight, he would fight. He had tremendous mental facilities.” Beemer said his book is nearly finished and has publication interest, although no publishing date has yet been scheduled. Born and raised south of Abilene and a graduate of Chapman High School, Beemer knew he wanted to be a writer from an early age. After attending Ambassador College near Dallas, Beemer was hired in 1969 by a magazine called Plain Truth and moved to Los Angeles, where he wrote about the police and the highway patrol issues. After a year in California, Beemer, his wife, Dawn, and their infant son moved first to Springfield, Mo., and then Salina, where in the mid1970s Beemer started his own custom furniture and custom
wood product business, which he ran for 30 years. He and his wife had two more sons. Fifteen years ago, Beemer moved his family and business to Bennington, where he has lived ever since. In 1991, Beemer took a fiction-writing workshop through Salina Arts and Humanities given by Leonard Bishop, a New York-based novelist, scriptwriter and creative writing teacher. Bishop’s class led to the formation of a local writing group, Southwind Writers. The group was composed of seven of Beemer’s fellow classmates. Together, the group critiqued each others’ works and published three collections of short stories. They since have disbanded. At the same time, Beemer began to write about collectible tractors, collaborating with photographer Chet Peterson on eight vintage tractor books ranging from Ford to John Deere. “Collectible tractors was a real phenomenon at one time,” he said. In 1996, after picking up an historical pamphlet in a St. Louis bookstore that described one of the deadliest tornados to touch down on U.S. soil — a tornado that hit St. Louis in 1896 and killed nearly 250 people — Beemer had found the subject for his next book. “Books had been written about hurricanes or tornadoes, but nobody I know of ever put all of them together before,” he said.

Anti-abortion groups urge Research more Kansas restrictions CONTINUED FROM PAGE 3A
TOPEKA (AP) — Buoyed by spring victories in the Kansas Capital, anti-abortion groups are planning to push for more restrictive measures, including one that would ban abortions when a fetal heartbeat is detected. A petition being circulated by Mark Gietzen, board chairman of the Kansas Coalition for Life, calls for Gov. Sam Brownback, an antiabortion Republican, to convene a special session this fall to consider the so-called “heartbeat bill.” The Wichita Eagle reported that another group plans to introduce a bill calling for a state constitutional amendment guaranteeing the rights of personhood to every human being from the beginning of biological development, including fertilization. The measures, which have been considered in other states but never passed into law, could spark a challenge to Roe v. Wade. The 1973 U.S. Supreme Court ruling upheld a woman’s right to an abortion until fetal viability. A fetus is usually considered viable at 22 to 24 weeks. Fetal heartbeats can be detected as early as six weeks. “It is the same as all of the other anti-reproductive rights legislation,” said Julie Burkhart, founder and director of Trust Women, which hopes to open a clinic offering first-trimester abortions and other women’s health services in Wichita in about a year. “It’s about denying access to pregnant women
Just because you have a governor that might sign it should it pass both bodies, there’s lots to be considered. Is it right for the long run? It’s going to be sued, so where are you going? You end up in the U.S. Supreme Court, where you’re still short a vote.” — Mary Kay Culp, executive director of the anti-abortion organization Kansans for Life, on anti-abortion groups’ push for more restrictive measures who are in need of reproductive health care. It’s a further step toward the re-criminalization of abortion services for women.” Even some factions of the anti-abortion movement said the measures go too far. “We want change to be lasting change, not try to throw the Hail Mary passes,” said Mary Kay Culp, executive director of the anti-abortion organization Kansans for Life, which has offices in Overland Park, Wichita and Topeka. The group urges incremental action, such as education and working to elect lawmakers who oppose abortion. “Just because you have a governor that might sign it should it pass both bodies, there’s lots to be considered,” she said. “Is it right for the long run? It’s going to be sued, so where are you going? You end up in the U.S. Supreme Court, where you’re still short a vote.” But Gietzen, who is pushing for the “heartbeat bill,” cited the numerous antiabortion measures that Brownback recently signed into law and said, “What else
can we do? We’ve got just about everything else covered.” Bills that have won passage set new licensing requirements for medical facilities that provide abortions; banned abortions after 21 weeks; required minors seeking an abortion to obtain the notarized written consent of both parents or a legal guardian; restricted private insurance coverage for abortions; and redirected federal family planning funds from Planned Parenthood to other health care agencies. The new licensing requirements and the stripping of federal funds from Planned Parenthood already are in the courts. Rep. Randy Garber, a Republican from Sabetha who is sponsoring the personhood legislation, isn’t sure how that vote will turn out. “Some strong pro-life people think it’s the wrong way to go,” he said. “I think it’ll be a very close vote.” He said that he tells critics, “This is why God put me in the Legislature. I really prayed about it.”
Missouri biofuels ethanol company wins $48.4M verdict CLAYTON, MO. (AP) — A suburban St. Louis biofuels ethanol company has won a $48.4 million judgment against a title company whose 2006 mistake caused it to bypass building a plant outside Wichita, Kan., and instead build one in Illinois. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported that a jury returned the verdict this past week in St. Louis County Circuit Court, ending a trial that lasted about two weeks. The verdict was one of the largest ever in the county. Abengoa Bioenergy alleged in the suit filed in
2008 that Chicago Title Insurance Co. was supposed to notify property owners near the site of the proposed Colwich, Kan., plant so the company could acquire the proper zoning to build it. But Jim Dowd, an attorney for Abengoa, said the title company left seven property owners off the list. Property owners learned about the plant after zoning was granted and sued. Dowd said the company built a plant in Granite City, Ill., in 2010 but that the Kansas plant could have opened 15 months earlier,
The program, which is funded for three years through a $500,000 National Science Foundation grant, focuses specifically on biofuels and is centered on research being conducted with the Center for Environmentally Beneficial Catalysis and the Transportation Research Institute. Partnering with a broad spectrum of KU scientists, the teachers are researching ways to maximize the growth of algae so it can be more affordable to convert to biofuels, how to extract oil from algae, how to turn oil into biofuels, what to do with the byproducts and how biofuels work in engines. “We are getting to have an authentic research experience,” Sharp said.
New lessons As other teachers are researching ways to create fuels and burn them, Lawrence High School physics teacher Alan Gleue is at the other end of the spectrum. He’s spent the summer studying ways to reduce energy consumption. With a device that measures energy usage, Gleue created lesson plans that will have students look at the difference in cost, energy use and carbon emissions for running a traditional incandescent light bulb, compact fluorescent bulb and LED light. “I think it could really hit home for them,” Gleue said of how he hopes his students will receive the lesson. He’s also collected household appliances for students to measure their energy usage, has a mini solar panel that can charge a cellphone and a radio that runs off a hand crank generator. “We have the opportunity to really think about and develop new lesson plans over the summer. And we have the time and we have the resources,” Gleue said.
would have been less expenEngaging students sive to build and more profGleue not only anticipates itable. He said the company eventually got the go-ahead for the Kansas plant and may still build there. Grant L. Davis, another attorney for Abengoa, said Chicago Title wouldn’t admit it had made a mistake. “All this time, and they haven’t done anything to make it right,” he told the Post-Dispatch. Chicago Title didn’t immediately respond to an email request for comment Sunday from The Associated Press.

SCOTT SHARP, A DE SOTO HIGH SCHOOL BIOLOGY AND NATURAL HISTORY TEACHER, LEFT, and Drew Ising, a Junction City high school biology and environmental science teacher, work on Wednesday on planning science experiments for their students involving algae as a fuel source. The two are doing research as part of the Research Experiences for Teachers program at Kansas University. taking those lesson plans into his classroom — the Webbased program is intended to be used by other teachers. As part of the program, the group of teachers spent two days at the Southeast Kansas Education Service Center in Greenbush to pass on their lesson plans to other Kansas high school science teachers. “Rather than a straight lab activity with a cookbook recipe, these guys are trying to create something that is engaging for students so they are doing more research in the high school setting,” said Claudia Bode, the education director for the Center for Environmentally Beneficial Catalysis. For the seminar in Greenbush, each of the teachers who attended received took kits worth about $100 that would help them implement the experiments in the classroom. In the case of Sharp and Ising, their kits included clear long plastic tubes that can be used to help determine how much algae is in water. They also are handing out small aquariums for growing algae. Ising plans to use the setup for students to study what happens to algae when fertilizer and other chemicals are added to water. “They are going to be held more accountable to actually

NASA’s corps of astronauts shrinks down to 60 as shuttles stop Associated Press Writer
C APE C A N A V E R A L , F LA . — NASA’s mighty astronaut corps has become a shadow of what it once was. And it’s only going to get smaller. It’s down to 60 from an alltime high of 149 just a decade ago, with more departures coming once Atlantis returns this week from the very last space shuttle voyage. With no replacement on the horizon for the shuttle, astronauts are bailing fast, even though the International Space Station will need crews for at least another decade. The commander of Discovery’s last flight back in March, Steven Lindsey? Gone to a company whose proposed commercial spacecraft resembles a mini-shuttle; his last day at NASA was Friday. The skipper of Endeavour’s last mission in May, Mark Kelly? Retiring in another few months to write a memoir with his wounded congresswoman wife, Gabrielle Giffords. The captain of Atlantis, Christopher Ferguson, assured The Associated Press from orbit late last week that he’ll be sticking around after this final shuttle journey of them all. At least one of his crew, though, isn’t so sure. After spending her childhood wanting to be an astronaut — and achieving that goal in 1996 — Atlantis astronaut Sandra Magnus now has
to figure out what the next chapter holds. “Now that I’m an astronaut, the whole idea of what I want to do when I grow up comes back full circle,” said Magnus, a scientist and former space station resident who’s flown in space three times. What a difference a decade makes.
Down from the biggest group ever NASA’s fabled astronaut corps numbered 149 in 20002001, the biggest group ever. Then shuttles were zooming back and forth building the space station, and a crew was being groomed to fly aboard Columbia to the Hubble Space Telescope. Now the space station is finished, Columbia is gone and the 30year shuttle program is ending. These days, chief astronaut Peggy Whitson finds herself on overdrive, working hard to keep up the morale at Houston’s Johnson Space Center, astronaut headquarters, while trying to convince outsiders that America still needs a robust astronaut corps in the shuttle-less era. After all, she’s got a space station to staff. Two Americans usually are among the six people living on the orbiting lab at any given time, hitching rides up and down on Russian Soyuz capsules. Private U.S. companies hope to take over this taxi job in three to five years,

answer questions. A lot of times we as teachers are in such a hurry to get through an activity so we can go to the next one that we don’t let our students go further to elaborate on another question,” Ising said. “A good science experiment creates just as many questions as it answers.” And soon, the teachers will get the chance to take those lessons for a dry run at KU’s engineering camp. Along with the opportunity to do research, the program includes a $8,000 stipend for participating high school teachers and another $1,000 to spend on equipment for the classroom. But the extra cash isn’t the only benefit to the program. “I’m a scientist too now. … I’m not just a teacher,” Ising said. “I’m now much more confident and comfortable acting as this expert to my students. You don’t have to know everything, you just have to have the experience.”
freeing NASA up to explore true outer space. First the goal was the moon, now it’s an asteroid and Mars. “It’s a very dynamic time, and a lot of folks aren’t real comfortable with all the uncertainties,” Whitson said. “None of us are.”
Not such a surprise Ferguson observed from space Friday that former military pilots make up about one-third of the astronaut corps, so he’s not surprised so many commander types are departing. “Pilots like to do what pilots like to do, and that’s fly airplanes,” the retired Navy captain told the AP. Whitson — herself a twotime space station resident — figures she needs 55 to 60 active astronauts “at a bare minimum and for pretty much the duration.” She said she has to account for absences due to injury, illness, pregnancy, even maxedout exposure to cosmic radiation. The National Research Council is evaluating just how many astronauts America really needs. A report by a committee of retired NASA leaders, ex-astronauts and others is expected next month. Depending on the findings, NASA may start taking applications soon for a new, albeit small, astronaut class. No matter the size, there will be plenty of applicants, all eager to join this exclusive club.

Tea party takes a whack at devising plan By Andrew Taylor Associated Press Writer
W A S H I N G T O N — The next step in the weeks-long saga over how to increase the government’s borrowing cap is to let House tea party forces try it their way. A Republican “cut, cap and balance” plan set for a House vote Tuesday would condition a $2.4 trillion increase in the so-called debt limit on an immediate $100 billion-plus cut from next year’s budget and adoption by Congress of a constitutional amendment to require a balanced budget. “Let’s let the American people decide,” said Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, on “Fox News Sunday.” “Do they want something common sense as cutting spending, capping the growth in government and requiring a balanced budget amendment to the Constitution?” The idea appears to be to
allow tea party-backed GOP lawmakers to have the run of Congress this week in hopes that they’ll ultimately be able to stomach a plan emerging in the Senate to give President Barack Obama sweeping power to order a $2.5 trillion increase in the debt limit without approval by Congress. The cut, cap and balance plan, however, is a dead letter with Obama and in the Democratic-controlled Senate — as is a separate effort by Republicans in that chamber to adopt a balanced budget amendment. Amending the Constitution requires a twothirds vote of both Houses, including 67 votes in the Senate, where Republicans control just 47. “No one believes there are 67 votes for any version of that,” said Dick Durbin of Illinois, the No. 2 Senate Democrat, on CBS’ “Face The Nation.”
Public opinion polls show that voters like the idea of a balanced budget, but the government faces such massive budget gaps — it now borrows more than 40 cents of every dollar it spends — that the cuts required to eliminate the deficit were too draconian for even the GOP-dominated House to endorse balancing the budget anytime soon. The House Republican budget still leaves deficits in the $400 billion range after 10 years. The immediate issue is allowing the government to continue to borrow from investors and foreign countries like China to pay its bills, which include a $23 billion batch of Social Security checks set to go out the day after an Aug. 2 deadline to avoid default. With the deadline just more than two weeks away and with a recent round of White House talks failing to
generate a breakthrough, Sen. Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., the cagey leader of his party in the Senate, has proposed a plan that would allow Obama to automatically win a large enough increase in the debt to keep the government afloat until 2013 unless both House and Senate override him by veto-proof margins. McConnell’s plan has political advantages but has come under assault from many conservatives eager to take advantage of the current opportunity to use the need to lift the debt ceiling to force deficit cuts now. But Republicans refuse to consider any tax revenue increases demanded by Obama and Democrats to balance any budget package, and Democrats won’t go along with significant cuts to benefits programs like Medicare and Medicaid unless tax increases on the wealthy are a part of the package.
Voters letting lawmakers know debt concerns By Shannon McCaffrey Associated Press Writer
ATLANTA — For Rep. Tim Scott the debt ceiling is not only the top issue voters in his South Carolina district want to talk about these days, it seems to be the only issue. The office of the freshman Republican has been logging dozens of calls and emails every day about the debt ceiling, and it’s the No. 1 topic of discussion at town hall-style meetings with voters. “Tons of phone calls, lots of emails, and the closer we get to Aug. 2, the more we’re hearing,” Scott said. With the deadline looming to raise the $14.3 trillion debt ceiling, voters are tuning in, worried by the prospect of a financial meltdown if the nation defaults and concerned that elected officials in Washington are playing politics with an issue that could have far-reaching consequences.
Tons of phone calls, lots of emails, and the closer we get to Aug. 2, the more we’re hearing.” — U.S. Rep. Tim Scott, South Carolina Republican If the United States falls into default, the result could be higher interest rates on mortgages, car loans and credit cards as well as a stop to Social Security checks for the elderly. In its simplest form, the debt ceiling fight crystallizes party orthodoxy: Republicans staking out a hard line against raising taxes and Democrats standing firm against deep cuts to government services. President Barack Obama supports a blend of spending cuts and tax increases, a position that has backing of 69 percent of Americans, according to a recent Gallup poll. And among those who aren’t wed to an entrenched party view, pragmatism
seems to be gaining traction over ideology. A poll from the Pew Research Center found that among independent voters — coveted by both political parties — concern has shifted from fear that raising the debt ceiling would increase government spending to worry about the impact of the failure to raise the debt ceiling. Two months ago Pew found that independents, by 49 percent to 34 percent margin, were more concerned that raising the debt ceiling would lead to higher government spending, as opposed to chiefly fearing the harmful effects of keeping the ceiling unchanged. This month, independents split evenly on the question.
“It’s going to be calamitous if we don’t raise our debt ceiling,” worried Ralph Leezenbaum of Mount Kisco, N.Y., who said he thought it would be raised in the end. Among some voters, there is suspicion that the talks in Washington are infused with the politics of the 2012 election. “I’m probably most frustrated for all the talk of bipartisanship,” said 60-year-old Mary Larson of Palatine, Ill. “It’s not happening. I don’t see compromise right now.” A San Francisco resident, Brian Fuller, said he believes that the debt ceiling should be raised given the country’s fragile economic health, but he also worries about the growth of government. “We need to use this time to evolve government so that it’s not quite so huge,” said Fuller, 50. “How we do that and not hurt the truly unfortunate is a very difficult question.”
Military gay couples won’t enjoy benefits By Julie Watson Associated Press Writer
SAN DIEGO — Gay service members from Army soldiers to Air Force officers are planning to celebrate the official end of the military’s 17-year policy that forced them to hide their sexual orientation with another official act — marriage. A 27-year-old Air Force officer from Ohio said he can’t wait to wed his partner of two years and slip on a ring that he won’t have to take off or lie about when he goes to work each day once “don’t ask, don’t tell” is repealed. He plans to wed his boyfriend, a federal employee, in Washington where same-sex marriages are legal. He asked not to be identified, following the advice of the Servicemembers Legal Defense Network, a national organization representing gay troops, including the Air Force officer, that has cautioned those on active duty from coming out until the ban is off the books. “I owe it to him and myself,” the officer said of getting married. “I don’t want to do it in the dark. I think that taints what it’s supposed to be about — which is us, our families, and our government.” But in the eyes of the military the marriage will not be recognized, and the couple will still be denied most of the benefits the Defense Department gives to heterosexual couples to ease the costs of medical care, travel, housing and other living expenses. The Pentagon says the 1996 federal Defense of Marriage Act, which defines marriage for federal program purposes as a legal union between a man and woman, prohibits the Defense Department from extending those benefits to gay couples, even if they are married legally in certain states.
That means housing allowances and off-base living space for gay service members with partners could be decided as if they were living alone. Base transfers would not take into account their spouses. If two gay service members are married to each other they may be transferred to two different states or regions of the world. For heterosexual couples, the military tries to avoid that happening. Gay activists and even some commanders say the discrepancy will create a twotier system in an institution built on uniformity. “It’s not going to work,” said Army Reserve Capt. R. Clarke Cooper, who heads up the Log Cabin Republicans, a gay rights group that sued the Justice Department to stop the enforcement of the “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy. “Taking care of our soldiers is necessary to ensure morale and unit cohesion. This creates a glaring stratification in the disbursement of support services and benefits.” Cooper said he also plans to marry his boyfriend, a former Navy officer, in a postrepeal era. The Obama administration has said it believes the ban could be fully lifted within weeks. A federal appeals court ruling July 6 ordered the government to immediately cease its enforcement. After the Department of Justice f iled an emergency motion asking the court to reconsider its order, the court on Friday reinstated the law but with a caveat that prevents the government from investigating or penalizing anyone who is openly gay. The Justice Department in its motion argued ending the ban abruptly now would preempt the “orderly process” for rolling back the policy as outlined in the law passed and signed by the president in December.

DR. FRED HENRETIG, an emergency medicine specialist, is the lead author of a study that says that children may be safest in cars when grandparents are driving instead of mom or dad.
Study: Grandparents may be safer drivers than parents By Lindsey Tanner Associated Press Writer
C H I C A G O — Kids may be safest in cars when grandma or g randpa are driving instead of mom or dad, according to study results that even made the researchers do a doubletake. “We were surprised to discover that the injury rate was considerably lower in crashes where grandparents were the drivers,” said Dr. Fred Henretig, an emergency medicine specialist at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia and the study’s lead author. Previous evidence indicates that car crashes are more common in older drivers, mostly those beyond age 65. The study looked at injuries rather than who had more crashes and found that children’s risk for injury was 50 percent lower when riding with grandparents than with parents. The results are from an analysis of State Farm insurance claims for 2003-07 car crashes in 15 states, and interviews with the drivers. The data involved nearly 12,000 children up to age 15. Henretig, 64, said the study was prompted by his own experiences when his first grandchild was born three years ago. “I found myself being very
nervous on the occasions that we drove our granddaughter around and really wondered if anyone had ever looked at this before,” he said. Reasons for the unexpected findings are uncertain, but the researchers have a theory. “Perhaps grandparents are made more nervous about the task of driving with the ‘precious cargo’ of their grandchildren and establish more cautious driving habits” to compensate for any age-related challenges, they wrote. The study was released online today in the journal Pediatrics. Northwestern University Professor Joseph Schofer, a transportation expert not involved in the research, noted that the average age of grandparents studied was 58. “Grandparents today are not that old” and don’t fit the image of an impaired older driver, he said. “None of us should represent grandparents as kind of hobbling to the car on a walker.” Grandparents did flub one safety measure. Nearly all the kids were in car seats or seat belts, but grandparents were slightly less likely to follow recommended practices, which include rear-facing backseat car seats for infants and no front-seats. But that didn’t seem to affect injury rates.
Ex-Murdoch exec arrested; London police chief resigns By Jill Lawless Associated Press Writer
LONDON — An intensifying voicemail hacking and police bribery scandal cut closer than ever to Rupert Murdoch and Scotland Yard on Sunday with the arrest of the media magnate’s former British newspaper chief and the resignation of London’s police commissioner. Though the former executive, Rebekah Brooks, and the police chief, Paul Stephenson, have denied wrongdoing, both developments are ominous not only for Murdoch’s News Corp., but for a British power structure that nurtured a cozy relationship with his papers for years. Brooks, the ultimate social and political insider, dined at Christmas with Prime Minister David Cameron. His Conservative-led government is now facing increasing questions about its relationship with Murdoch’s media empire. The arrest of the 43-yearold Brooks, often described as a surrogate daughter to the 80-year-old Murdoch, brought the British police investigations into the media baron’s inner circle for the f irst time. She was questioned and released on bail some 12 hours later, Scotland Yard announced early today. It raises the possibility that Murdoch’s old friend Les Hinton, who resigned Friday as publisher of The Wall Street Journal, or his 38-yearold son and heir apparent, James, could be next. Until her resignation Friday, Brooks was the defiant chief executive of News International, Murdoch’s British newspaper arm, whose News of the World tabloid stands accused of hacking into the phones of celebrities, politicians, other journalists and even murder victims. In the tumultuous last two weeks, she had kept her job even as Murdoch shut down the 168-year-old News of the World and tossed 200 other journalists out of work. On Sunday she showed up for a prearranged meeting with London police investigating the hacking and was arrested. She was questioned on suspicion of conspiring to intercept communications — phone hacking — and on suspicion of corruption, which relates to bribing police for information. Brooks’ spokesman, David Wilson, said police contacted her Friday to arrange a meeting and she voluntarily went “to assist with their ongoing investigation.” He claimed that Brooks did not know she was going to be arrested. Hours after Brooks’ arrest, Stephenson said he was resigning as commissioner of Lon-

don’s force because of “speculation and accusations” about his links to Neil Wallis, a former News of the World executive editor who was arrested last week in the scandal. Wallis worked for the London police as a part-time PR consultant for a year until September 2010. Stephenson said he did not make the decision to hire Wallis and had no knowledge of allegations that he was linked to phone hacking, but he wanted his police force to focus on preparing for the 2012 London Olympics instead of wondering about a possible leadership change. “I had no knowledge of the extent of this disgraceful practice and the repugnant nature of the selection of victims that is now emerging,” Stephenson said. “I will not lose any sleep over my personal integrity.” Brooks’ arrest was the latest blow for Murdoch, the once all-powerful figure courted by British politicians of all stripes. Now Murdoch is struggling to tame a scandal that has already destroyed News of the World, cost the jobs of Brooks and Hinton and sunk the media baron’s dream of taking full control of a lucrative satellite broadcaster, British Sky Broadcasting. Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg said Murdoch “needs to come absolutely clean about what he knew, about what his senior executives knew, and why this culture of industrial-scale corruption — so it is alleged — appeared to have grown up without anyone higher up in the food chain taking any real responsibility for it.” Rupert and James Murdoch are to be grilled by U.K. lawmakers Tuesday over the scandal.

Obama should lead, not just react
Tax break? While considering how to spend down their reserve fund, school district officials should keep local taxpayers in mind.
he Lawrence school district recently received a financial surprise. The district dutifully had been contributing to a contingency fund — think of it as a savings account — in hopes of softening the impact of future state cuts in school aid. Local school officials had built up a stack of dollars — about six million of them. Now, however, the district’s been reminded by the state that there was a limit to how long they could hold onto at least some of that money. Facing a deadline to pare that savings account, school officials must find ways to spend $3 million during the next 12 months. It wouldn’t be prudent for the money to be used to finance ongoing costs. So, for example, it wouldn’t make sense to devote the money to raises. There are, however, lots of good ideas being suggested. Give teachers a one-time bonus. Purchase large volumes of supplies, from canned tomatoes to copy paper. Rehire staffers for a year who had been laid off. Buy textbooks, computers, upgrade equipment. And catch up on some deferred building maintenance. Maybe the district could add one more item to that list for consideration: property tax relief. After all, it’s taxpayers’ money that is in that contingency fund, and there’s no doubt that many property taxpayers in the Lawrence school district are suffering themselves, from job cuts, salary cuts and higher prices. It would be only a temporary cut, but that’s OK. So as school board members and district administrators ponder how to spend their nest egg during the next year, giving taxpayers a little break would be at least worth considering.
W A S H I N G T O N — A prominent Bush administration official was talking privately about Barack Obama last week: He’s probably going to win in 2012, this Republican said. He deserves credit for “going big” in the budget talks and capturing the center of the debate. But why isn’t he projecting his goals and philosophy more clearly to the country? Why does he so often seem to react, rather than lead? Given Obama’s strengths, this Republican observer continued, his White House advisers should already be thinking about what Obama can achieve in a second term. They should begin drafting plans and policies, but even more, they should be communicating the president’s vision. Instead, every day at this White House seems like “The Perils of Pauline,” with one cliffhanger after another. The debt-limit crisis is a scary example of this tendency to follow, rather than lead. Through 2010, the Obama White House kept its distance from deficitreduction proposals, and when it finally entered the fray, it was in the person of Vice President Biden. One official told me bluntly last year that floating proposals too early was a loser, politically. So Obama waited. His policy ideas, now that they’re public, look pretty solid. But rather than uniting the country behind a vision for reforming entitlements and taxes, he looks like a man being dragged into church
David Ignatius firstname.lastname@example.org
The debt-limit crisis is a scary example of this tendency to follow, rather than lead.” by a firebrand preacher named Eric Cantor. The Republicans look bad, but so does Obama. This communications gap is apparent in foreign policy, too. Obama may have a vision for why American troops should remain in Afghanistan until 2014, but he doesn’t convey it forcefully. This is his war, but he embraces it reluctantly and without clear definition. He places equal emphasis on withdrawing troops and staying the course, which confuses people. The same is true for the Arab Spring. Obama has had it about right, in policy terms. U.S. strategy is a sensible mix of pragmatism and principle. America supports the movements for democratic change in the autocratic republics, such as Tunisia, Egypt, Yemen and Syria. It respects the more conservative traditions of
the pro-Western monarchies and sheikdoms, such as Jordan, Saudi Arabia, the U.A.E., Bahrain, Morocco and Kuwait. This distinction isn’t complicated, it just needs to be explained. The administration’s caution on Syria makes sense, too. The goal is a transition to a new, democratic Syria without a sectarian war that would be worse than Iraq’s. The administration raised the pressure by sending Ambassador Robert Ford to Hama, scene of the horrific 1982 massacre. The message: This time, the world is watching. Arguments that Ford should be pulled, or that Obama should throw some fiery rhetoric at the Syrian dynamite keg, strike me as very wrong. That said, Obama needs to explain his vision of democratic transition, and work with the Syrian opposition to achieve it, peacefully. The world looks to America in times like this. Governments and business leaders want a basic framework, so they can make decisions. What they get from the Obama White House, too often, is silence. “Just tell us what you want,” an influential foreign visitor said last week of the Obama administration. It’s a comment you would hear in most capitals of Europe and Asia. Global leaders are accustomed, after Reagan, Clinton and the two Bushes, to U.S. presidents who have a few basic themes and repeat them, several
times a week. From this White House they get a big speech every six months. I had a chance last week to watch two world-class communicators, television megastar Oprah Winfrey and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie. It’s hard to think of two more different people, but they share a common ability to connect with an audience. Their comments at an Allen & Co. conference in Sun Valley, Idaho, were off the record. But both express an up-by-your-bootstraps philosophy, and an optimism about America that’s infectious. Christie is an especially intriguing figure. He’s the antiObama: overweight and seemingly unworried about it, where the president is lean and fastidious; disarmingly frank, where Obama is cautious. Christie is a favorite of tea party Republicans, but I heard enthusiastic comments about him from a halfdozen Democrats. Christie will be a formidable candidate if he runs for president one day. The Obama White House is blessed, if that’s the right word, in having such an irresponsible Republican opposition in Congress. As the debt-limit day of reckoning approaches, the GOP will pay for its reckless, roundhouse swings. But the president needs to start acting like a fighter and a leader, rather than a punching bag. — David Ignatius is a columnist for Washington Post Writers Group.
Positive training To the editor: It is truly exciting to hear that the nationally acclaimed Crisis Intervention Team training is being brought to Lawrence. Police Chief Tarik Khatib made a brilliant decision to bring organizations and individuals in Lawrence together to make this training possible. First responders will now be better equipped and able to deal with people who are facing personal crisis situations and those with mental health issues in a more effective manner. An already awesome police department is headed in a very favorable direction under its new leadership. Thank you to the National Alliance on Mental IllnessKansas for all their efforts in bringing CIT to Kansas and to Recovery and Hope Network for making that very helpful suggestion.

C O L U M B U S , O HIO — He was a hero in two of America’s wars, then a fabled test pilot, a fourterm senator, a presidential candidate, finally a party elder. But in the mind’s eye and in history, John Herschel Glenn Jr. is frozen in time. His boyhood friends, his wartime comrades and his Senate colleagues have grown old, and some have died. His political causes are yesterday’s, their urgency gone, the stuff of the past rather than the right stuff of today. But John Glenn remains what he was when he became a staple of black-and-white television and the color pictures of Life magazine, two media themselves both gone: An American phenomenon — forever young, forever clad in the silvery Project Mercury space suit he wore when he sat above a smoking Atlas booster, forever the commander of Friendship 7, forever the first American to orbit the Earth. So today brings an important, sobering, even jarring landmark — for him and to some extent for the country. Today, Glenn, who for a generation represented an American future as shiny as his silver space suit, turns 90 years old. He was born in a country that, in the years just after World War I, was self-conscious about its strength, nervous about its role, reluctant to confront either. He grew up in an innocent time (the 1920s) in an innocent place (New Concord, Ohio) and volunteered to confront evil (World War II) and aggression (Korea). He caught the excitement of the new technology, and then, as one of

the Original Seven astronauts, spawned excitement among millions who turned their eyes skyward to the boundless expanses of space and to the boundless opportunities it seemed to offer. Today Glenn isn’t so much a shadow of himself — so many men at 90 are — as he is a mirror of himself. The face still as round as the sun, the smile still as broad as his Midwest accent, Glenn still walks briskly, still exudes an infectious optimism from behind gold aviator glasses. Last month he flew his Beechcraft Baron between Washington and Columbus. Next winter his wife, Annie, 91 and recovering from knee replacement surgery, plans to ski. The couple looks forward to driving across the country in the fall. “I’d rather burn out,” he says in his office in the John Glenn School of Public Affairs at Ohio
State University here, “than rust out.” He’s not likely to do either. Glenn always seemed the personification of old American virtues — hardworking, daring, forward-looking, sensible, unpretentious — even when he was young. For four hours and 56 minutes in 1962, a period of Cold War tension and Kennedy idealism, he circled the Earth, then returned to a world that made of him a hero. Glenn exuded the upbeat spirit of an era he helped define. From Iowa and New Hampshire to states across the country during his disappointing 1984 presidential campaign, he trumpeted a can-do utilitarianism and a sense that all things were possible. One reason he did not prevail that year is that he still believed, while the rest of the Democratic Party of the time did not. Glenn read science fiction as a boy, then lived it as a man. He and his father flew in the front of an open-cockpit biplane harnessed by a mere leather strap. He later left Earth’s orbit on Friendship 7 protected from what he feared was sure incineration by the straps of his retrorockets. He built model airplanes, the old-fashioned kind made from balsa, not plastic, then lived to see the old Mercury spacecraft models by Revell selling as antiques or maybe keepsakes for $85. He returned to space in 1998 for a nine-day mission on the shuttle Discovery. He was 77. That space mission was 45 times longer than his first one 36 years earlier, and about 1/45th as exciting for the nation. In a wheelchair at Cape Canaveral the morning of
his launch was his Korean War wingman, a shrunken residue of a wild specimen whom Annie Glenn remembers as the most profane man she ever met. We remember him as greatest hitter who ever lived, Ted Williams. But his closest associates came from the Original Seven. “We were bonded for a long time,” Scott Carpenter, 86, the only other survivor from that group, said in a recent telephone interview. “I admire John enormously. This is a Mercury friendship.” Glenn and his six colleagues were reared in a world without the word “astronauts,” but everything about their selection, and then their training, signaled that the nation was embarking on an epic undertaking that melded teamwork and individuality. World War II was won by as many as 16 million Americans (and that’s not counting the British, Soviet and other combatants). Space would be won by seven Americans, or so the fable said. Now Glenn is 90, still transfixed by the future but knowing it is a future he will not shape. “We’re a nation that more than any other country has stressed research,” he said the other day. “We’re accustomed to the new and the unknown. It’s the way we grew up.” So many of us grew up in a world molded not only by what Glenn did, but also by the way he thought. And by the words Carpenter uttered as his friend’s rocket prepared to lift into the Florida sky: Godspeed, John Glenn. — David M. Shribman is executive editor of the Post-Gazette.

The Rackatees Tonight’s Jackpot show is a great way to kick-start the rest of the working week. The Fordists, a high-energy punk group, headline tonight’s show and bring with them plenty of aggression and anger to go around. They’re sloppy, they’re loud, and they’re a perfect fit for Monday night show. They are joined by another, similarly punchy Lawrence band, The Rackatees, who sound far more akin to the west coast punk acts that sprang up in the mid-1990s. The show is capped with Baby Boomers.

Heat wave in central U.S. shows no signs of ending By Murray Evans Associated Press Writer
OKLAHOMA CITY — As temperatures climbed into the 90s Sunday in Steele, N.D., a small window air conditioner in Paul and Betty Smokov’s ranch home just couldn’t keep up. “It’s 82 in the house,” Betty Smokov said. “The heat is really oppressive and sticky.” That observation could be made anywhere in the central U.S. Heat advisories and warnings were in place in 17 states, from Texas to Michigan, as temperatures and humidity combined to make being outside uncomfortable for millions. One National Weather Service forecaster called the heat wave “unrelenting” and said sweaty residents shouldn’t expect any relief soon: A so-called “heat dome” over the region isn’t moving much. “The trend is not our friend right now,” said Daryl Williams, a forecaster in Norman. In Oklahoma City, forecasters expected another day of 100-degree heat Sunday,

which would be the 27th day this year the city has reached 100 or above. The city is on pace to break its record for such days — 50 set in 1980 — with triple-digit heat possible through September. It’s even worse in western Oklahoma, where temperatures at 110 or above have been common in recent weeks. In Enid, asphalt at a major intersection along U.S.
Highway 412 buckled Saturday night from the intense heat. Justin Tinder of Weatherford and his family visited the Oklahoma City Zoo on Sunday, arriving at 9 a.m. “By noon, we were headed out,” Tinder said. “It was too hot for us to stand much longer. We decided to check it in and go find some air conditioning.”
In Chicago, city officials said a half-dozen cooling centers would remain open this week, as temperatures as high as 105 were forecast in Illinois. Cooling centers also were open in Detroit to help residents who don’t have air conditioning at home. Others were heading toward water for relief, including 65-yearold welder Marcellus Washington, who wore a floppy cloth fishing hat and sunglasses as he walked through a park on the Detroit River that marks the border with Canada. “A day like this, you can’t beat it,” Washington said. “It’s a heavenly day. It’s God’s weather.” Others who had to be outside in the heat took precautions. North Dakota National Guard Capt. Dan Murphy said several hundred soldiers deployed for flood-fighting efforts in the Dakotas were required to take mandatory rest breaks in the shade. “It’s hot in those vests and uniforms,” Murphy said. “These are soldiers. They can’t just strip down to Tshirts and shorts.”

Soph Frankamp commits to KU hoops By Gary Bedore email@example.com
Tom Keegan firstname.lastname@example.org
Woodland majorly consistent In that window after the British Open ended and before the gripping women’s World Cup title game kicked off, Chris Lazzarino, associate editor of the Kansas Alumni magazine, wondered aloud how many American golfers can claim top30 finishes this year in all three (of the four) major golf tournaments. The answer is three. Not the injured Tiger Woods, who finished fifth at The Masters and missed the U.S. Open and British Open. Not Phil Mickelson, whose U.S. Open was spoiled by a third-round 77. Not Dustin Johnson or Zach Johnson. Neither Rickie Fowler nor Bubba Watson. Not Nick Watney. Not Anthony Kim. Not Jim Furyk. Not Stuart Cink. Steve Stricker and Ryan Palmer. Guess the third. Hint No. 1: As many athletes who both played basketball for Washburn and golfed for Kansas University have finished in the top 30 in all three majors as have all the European professional golfers combined. Hint No. 2: Why would an associate editor of the Kansas Alumni magazine wonder aloud how many American golfers have done so? Give up? The answer is Gary Woodland, who played in even more miserable conditions than most because of his unlucky tee times at Royal St. George’s in Sandwich, England. He shot a 72 in Sunday’s final round to finish tied for 30th. Woodland tied for 24th in the Masters and tied for 23rd in the U.S. Open. The PGA, the final major on the calendar and the only one Woodland never has played, is scheduled for Aug. 11-14 at the Atlanta Athletic Club. Woodland will gun for first, not the top 30. Still, his consistent performance in the majors puts him in rare air. Young players who do well in majors tend to add season over the years and eventually win one. The length of Augusta National suits Woodland well and so do the bright lights. Big stages tend to bring out the best in the former Washburn University basketball player. Believing Woodland one day will have the Green Jacket slipped onto him in Butler Cabin is not a stretch. His obsession with improving as a golfer didn’t come to him as early as most tour players because he spent so much of his youth on baseball diamonds and basketball courts. Six players from three continents can boast top-30 finishes in each of the majors so far this year. The world’s most underrated golfer, reigning Masters champion Charl Schwartzel of South Africa; Y.E. Yang of South Korea, who tied for third in the U.S. Open; and U.S. Open champion Rory McIlroy of Northern Ireland also have done it. From youngest to oldest: McIlroy, 22, Schwartzel, 26, Woodland, 27, Palmer, 34, Yang, 39, and Stricker, 44. Woodland never contended in a British Open during which five of the world’s top 10-ranked golfers missed the cut, but he did make news Friday when he drove the 419-yard fifth hole and shot 68, the same day Tom Watson, 61, aced a hole for the 15th time on his way to a tie for 22nd place. Watson has won eight majors: five British Opens, two Masters and one U.S. Open. Woodland has won one PGA Tour event, the Transitions in Orlando in March. Strong signs suggest it will be neither his last nor biggest victory.
Wichita North junior-to-be Conner Frankamp’s 16th birthday celebration Saturday night consisted of ... ● attending “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2” with parents, Karen and Marty; ● dining with his loved ones at “Freddy’s Frozen Custard and Steakburgers;” ● and, oh, yes, orally committing to play basketball at Kansas University.
“It was probably my best birthday ever,” said Frankamp, a 6foot-1, 160-pound point guard. He received a scholarship offer from Jayhawk coach Bill Self at the conclusion of his June 30 unofficial visit to KU. “It’s crazy. It really is a dream come true. I am a pretty big Kansas fan. I have been my whole life. I’m just really excited to be going there,” added Frankamp, who averaged 27.2 points, 4.2 rebounds, 3.2 assists and 1.8 steals per game his sophomore season at North.
Frankamp phoned Self with the good news Saturday night while KU’s ninth-year coach was attending a surprise 50th-wedding anniversary party for Self’s parents in Oklahoma. “Coach Self said he’s really happy to have me and said I’ve been playing really well,” said Frankamp, who has had a stellar summer for KC Pump N Run after averaging 8.6 points and 3.6 assists for the gold-medal-winning United States team at the FIBA Americas U16 Championships in Cancun.
Frankamp — he scored a Wichita City League-record 52 points last season in an 87-81 double-overtime loss to Wichita Northwest — chose KU over Oklahoma, Texas, UCLA, Boston College, Kansas State, Missouri, Wichita State and others. It’s believed Rivals.com’s No. 65-rated player in the Class of 2013 would have received many offers in the months to come. “It’s been my dream my whole life. I might as well get it over

JAPAN’S SAKI KUMAGAI, BACKGROUND, SCORES THE DECISIVE GOAL past United States goalkeeper Hope Solo during the penalty shootout of the Women’s World Cup championship on Sunday in Frankfurt, Germany.
Japan ends U.S. Cup quest in shootout FRANKFURT, GERMANY (AP) — Amid the sorrow that lingers throughout Japan, perhaps a little joy — courtesy of the determined women on its World Cup team. They beat the Americans for the title in a riveting final Sunday night, 3-1 on penalty kicks, after coming from behind twice in a 2-2 tie. The star of the shootout was feisty goalkeeper Ayumi Kaihori, who made two brilliant saves in the shootout. All tournament long the teammates poignantly reminded the world they were playing for their battered country, still reeling from the devastation of the March 11 earthquake and tsunami.
Did they ever. They held the gleaming trophy high above their smiling faces as confetti swirled around the podium, flecking their hair with gold. “Before we went to the match tonight we had some commentary on television and we heard comments on the situation in Japan,” coach Norio Sasaki said. “We wanted to use this opportunity to thank the people back home for the support that has been given.” This was Japan’s first appearance in the final of a major tournament, and they had not beaten the Americans in their first 25 meetings, including a pair of 2-0 losses in warm-up games a month before
the World Cup. But the Nadeshiko pushed ahead, playing inspired soccer and hoping their success could provide even a small emotional lift to their nation, where nearly 23,000 people died or were reported missing. After each game, the team unfurled a banner saying, “To our Friends Around the World — Thank You for Your Support.” On Sunday, they did it before the match and afterward they had a new sign to display: Champion — the first Asian country to win this title. The Americans found it all too hard to grasp. They believed they were meant to be World Cup champions after their rocky year
— needing a playoff to qualify, a loss in group play to Sweden, the epic comeback against Brazil. They simply couldn’t pull off one last thriller. “The players were patient. They wanted to win this game,” Sasaki said. “I think it’s because of that the Americans scored only two goals.” While the Japanese celebrated at midfield, the Americans stood as a group and watched. “There are really no words,” Abby Wambach said. “We were so close.” Minutes, actually.

NORTHERN IRELAND’S DARREN CLARKE REACTS on the 18th green after winning the British Open on Sunday at Royal St George’s golf course in Sandwich, England.
SANDWICH, ENGLAND — No matter how long it grows or even how quickly, the list of major champions from the tiny country of Northern Ireland just wouldn’t feel complete without Darren Clarke. He doesn’t have the majestic swing of Rory McIlroy or the putting prowess of Graeme McDowell, the last two U.S. Open champions. He hasn’t contended in a major for the last 10 years, wasn’t even eligible for the last three majors and was no longer among the top 100 in the world.

SANDWICH, ENGLAND — Gary Woodland picked up a few pounds during his first trip to the British Open. Woodland, a Topeka native and former Kansas University
golfer, tied for 30th place at the Open on Sunday and earned 29,270 pounds, or about $47,126 in his first appearance in the venerable event. Woodland shot 75-68-7472—289, 14 strokes behind winner Darren Clarke.

SANDWICH, ENGLAND — On an exposed corner of Royal St. George’s golf course, close by the English Channel, Phil Mickelson was in a place he’d never been Sunday afternoon. He had a share of the final-round lead in the Open Championship, tied with Darren Clarke, as he leaned into his familiar crouch over a 10-foot birdie putt that would give him a 29 on the front side and a one-stroke lead in the major that has most mystified him. Through eight holes, Mickelson had been brilliant, the way the great ones sometimes are on a championship Sunday. He looked like the old Mickelson, using his clubs like wands, crafting his own magic. The Claret Jug, as elusive as recapturing a dream, was right there. Watching Mickelson settle over the putt, a man in the gallery said, “It’s great to finally see Phil at his best.” Then a sudden cold rain, whipped sideways by the relentless wind, began to fall. And Mickelson began to melt. He missed the birdie putt at the ninth and, an instant later, a roar erupted from behind a nearby dune, signalling Clarke had taken control of the championship with an eagle at the short, par-5 seventh. Mickelson would birdie the 10th, a counterpunch that kept him close, but then he missed a short one at the 11th, no more than 30 inches, and he, like the other American challengers, was in retreat. It ended with Mickelson shouting “Fore, right!” as his approach shot to the final green dive-bombed into the enormous greenside grandstand at the 18th. Mickelson briefly bowed his head but came up smiling again. All week he had tried to kill his Open hex with kindness and optimism and it very nearly worked. Ultimately, Clarke played the best in winning a championship that doubled as a lifetime achievement award for the man who carried Northern Ireland golf before Graeme McDowell and Rory McIlroy. He caught a couple of good breaks Sunday, two shots bouncing over snake-pit bunkers that could have changed the momentum, but Clarke also made a huge 12-foot par putt on the first hole that seemed to cement his nerves. As Clarke played the final hole, Mickelson, who tied for second with his practiceround buddy Dustin Johnson, waited greenside to congratulate him. When news broke about Mickelson’s wife, Amy, being diagnosed with breast cancer two years ago, Clarke was among the first people to call. He’d lost his wife, Heather, to the disease in 2006 and he talked Mickelson through his early emotions. It was a gracious move by Mickelson, who chose not to wallow in his own disappointment. He talked afterward about finding his old self recently, putting an element of joy back into his game that had gone missing while he coped with his wife and mother’s cancer battles and his own diagnosis of psoriatic arthritis last year. Nothing could be better than Mickelson being Mickelson again. “I haven’t been myself the last couple of years,” he said, cracking the door on his psyche. “I feel I’m getting back to playing the way I can.” Sunday was filled with classic Mickelson, both the brilliant Phil and the frustrating Phil. He wound up three behind Clarke and tied for second with Johnson, his best finish in 19 Open starts. Northern Ireland has won three majors — by three different Ulstermen—since Mickelson captured the 2010 Masters. It was Mickelson who pushed the fight Sunday, a welcome sight regardless of how it ended. Standing beside Clarke as the new champion waited to receive the Claret Jug early Sunday evening, Mickelson had an arm on his friend’s shoulder. And a smile on his face.

THOMAS VOECKLER WEARS THE LEADER’S YELLOW JERSEY and reads a newspaper prior to the 15th stage of the Tour de France on Sunday in Montpellier, France.
Voeckler keeps Tour lead but doubts chances MONTPELLIER, FRANCE — Thomas Voeckler stayed with the big Tour de France favorites in the mountains. He’s had the lead for six days. And no less a cycling connoisseur than Lance Armstrong thinks the Frenchman could be wearing the yellow jersey when the race ends July 24 in Paris. The biggest doubter is Voeckler himself. “I will fight, of course, but I mustn’t be dishonest,” Voeckler said after Sunday’s flat Stage 15, won by British sprint star Mark Cavendish. “I consider that I have zero percent chance of winning the Tour de France.” For many French fans, Voeckler has rekindled cautious optimism that cycling’s greatest prize could return home for the first time since 1985, the last of Bernard Hinault’s five victories. Voeckler’s retort: Don’t expect me to do it. “I don’t want to lie to the public,” he said. “Maybe it would make for good publicity, I don’t know, but it doesn’t interest me. ... I’m not going to announce to the French people that ‘I’m in yellow, I have a chance to win.’” Such humility has been virtually unheard of at cycling’s premier event in recent years. Riders like Armstrong or three-time champion Alberto Contador of Spain unabashedly bared their ambition from the outset. “It’s not a question of wanting. Everybody would like to win the Tour,” Voeckler said. “It’s true that since Bernard Hinault, the French people want a winner. I really sense it well.” Voeckler leads Frank Schleck of Luxembourg by 1 minute, 49 seconds, and Cadel Evans of Australia is third, 2:06 back. Schleck’s younger brother, Andy, is 2:15 behind in fourth, and Ivan Basso of Italy is fifth — 3:16 off the pace. Contador is seventh, four minutes behind.
NFL Judge expected in NY for talks Talks to end the NFL lockout will resume with the court-appointed mediator in New York today and could continue through Thursday, a person familiar with the negotiations told the Associated Press. The person spoke to the AP on Sunday on condition of anonymity, because the discussions are supposed to remain confidential. The mediator, U.S. Magistrate Judge Arthur Boylan, originally had ordered representatives of the league’s owners and players to meet with him Tuesday in Minneapolis. Now Boylan is expected to arrive in New York today to oversee talks aimed at ending the NFL’s first work stoppage since 1987. The owners have a special meeting set for Thursday in Atlanta, where they potentially could ratify a new deal — if one is reached by then.
Bengals RB Cedric Benson arrested AUSTIN, TEXAS — Running back Cedric Benson was released from jail Sunday following an arrest on an assault charge, the second year in a row he has gotten into trouble in his home state. Benson was a free agent after leading the Cincinnati Bengals in rushing each of the last three seasons. He hoped to stay with the Bengals and worked out with players in Cincinnati during the NFL’s lockout. Travis County sheriff’s spokesman Roger Wade said Benson was arrested in downtown Austin on a misdemeanor count of assault with bodily injury with family violence. Wade said Benson posted a $10,000 bond and was released just before 2 p.m.
MLB Mets’ Jose Reyes to make rehab start NEW YORK — Mets shortstop Jose Reyes will make a rehabilitation start for Class-A Brooklyn today before he is activated from the disabled list, possibly a day later. Reyes tested his strained left hamstring by running the bases Sunday before New York lost to the Philadelphia Phillies, 8-5. Manager Terry Collins announced the decision after the game. “I anticipate one rehab game,” Collins said. “Hopefully he’ll come out of it feeling good.” With general manager Sandy Alderson and Reyes’ agent, Peter Greenberg, looking on, the All-Star ran from home to first three times, first to third, second to home and home to second. Fans who arrived early chanted Reyes’ name as he ran all out, a big grin on his face. “I think we did enough running,” Reyes said. “I tested my legs in a lot of different ways. It is a relief. In the past I’ve had setbacks. I didn’t expect to run this quickly, but I’ve been working hard and doing treatment.” Leading the majors with a .354 batting average, Reyes has been out since July 3 and is eligible to come off the disabled list today — but the Mets want him to test his leg in a game. Collins apparently wanted Reyes to skip the rehab game but was overruled. The Mets are being extremely cautious with their electrifying leadoff hitter because he has a history of leg injuries.
GOLF Kirk gets first PGA Tour victory MADISON, MISS. — After a tap-in putt for a one-stroke victory at the Viking Classic, Chris Kirk picked up his ball, gave a nearly indiscernible fist pump and strode off the course like a man who’s done it a hundred times. Not exactly what you’d expect from a firsttime PGA Tour winner. “I gave a little bit of a fist pump, I think, didn’t I?” Kirk said grinning. “I don’t know. I made a three-inch putt to win. That’s not exactly an accomplishment. All the other shots I hit were pretty good, though.” They certainly were. Kirk, a 26-year-old rookie, shot a 4-under 68 to beat Tom Pernice Jr. and George McNeill by one stroke at Annandale Golf Club. It ended an impressive week for the Georgia graduate, who tied the tournament record with a 22-under performance over four rounds. Kirk had a one-stroke lead going into the final round and rarely flinched. He never trailed, breaking a tie with McNeill on No. 17 by hitting a 140-yard approach over water to within five feet of the hole for an easy birdie putt.
Knox shoots 66 to earn 1st win MAINEVILLE, OHIO — Russell Knox shot a 6under 66 to earn his first Nationwide Tour victory Sunday, beating Billy Hurley by three strokes at the Chiquita Classic. The Scot began the day with a one-stroke lead and was never challenged at TPC River’s Bend, finishing at 25-under 263. He moved from No. 27 to No. 5 on the season money list. The 25 top money-winners will earn PGA Tour cards for 2012. Hurley closed with six birdies on the back nine for a 64 and a career best finish. Brian Stuard (65) and Greg Owen (67) tied for third at 20 under. Chris Nallen posted the day’s best score, a 63 that moved him to 19 under and a tie for fifth with Josh Broadaway (69) and B.J. Staten (71).

Thome homer lifts Twins M I N N E A P O L I S ( A P ) — Jim Thome has been plagued by aches and pains for the better part of a decade. They just seem to be coming around a little more often in his 19th season. A strained oblique and bothersome toe injury on his left foot have slowed his chase of 600 career homers, but the Minnesota Twins are sticking with him for moments like the sixth inning on Sunday against Kansas City. With the game tied and his team in desperate need of a jolt, Thome hit his 596th home run to lift the Twins to a 4-3 victory over the Royals. Thome’s tiebreaking threerun drive off Felipe Paulino soared into the upper deck in right-center field, leaving him four shy of becoming the eighth player to hit 600 home runs. “It’s always special,” Thome said. “That feeling you want to kind of last forever. It went out, it put us ahead. And that’s No. 1.”

Jeff Francoeur homered and Melky Cabrera added two hits for the Royals. Paulino (13) struck out eight in seven innings, yielding four runs and seven hits.
Brian Duensing (7-7) gave up three runs and seven hits in 61⁄3 innings for the Twins, who started a crucial 12-game homestand by taking three of four from the Royals. After a relatively healthy season last year in which he hit 25 homers in 108 games, this one has been a tough one. He will turn 41 in August, and it’s getting tougher and tougher to get his body ready to grind out each at-bat. On a sweltering day where the heat index climbed past 110 degrees, Thome looked plenty loose when he sent a 32 pitch from Paulino an estimated 490 feet into the stands for a 4-1 lead. He also became the 11th player to hit 500 homers in the American League, according to STATS, LLC. “He’s had some injuries and we know we have to limit what you can do with him to keep him healthy,” Twins manager Ron Gardenhire said. “That was a big at-bat and it was one

with, go ahead and do it,” Frankamp said of his reason for committing halfway through his high school career. “I used to follow (former KU/current NBA guard) Kirk Hinrich a lot. He was probably one of my favorite players. I’ve always liked the team in general, the players and coaches.” At this stage of his development, Frankamp is best known for his ability to shoot — and score. The slender guard, who, at the age of 5 scored 18 points in his first-ever Biddy Basketball League game, scored 25 points as a high school freshman in his Wichita City League debut (against state champion Heights). As a sophomore, North’s leading scorer hit 52 percent of his two-point tries, 46 percent of his threes and 89 percent of his free throws. “He was playing — and shooting — when he was 2, 3 years old,” said Frankamp’s

Clarke “I’m a bit of a normal bloke, aren’t I?” Clarke said, the claret jug at his side. “I like to go to the pub and have a pint, fly home, buy everybody a drink, just normal. There’s not many airs and graces about me. I was a little bit more difficult to deal with in my earlier years, and I’ve mellowed some. Just a little bit. But I’m just a normal guy playing golf, having a bit of fun.” He was extraordinary at Royal St. George’s. A cigarette curled under his fingers as he barreled down the fairways, Clarke held off brief challenges from Phil Mickelson and Dustin Johnson and held up under the pressure until no one could catch him. Mickelson, who needed only seven holes to made up a f ive-shot def icit, stepped aside by missing too many short putts. Johnson, in the final group of a major for the third time in the last six, made another blunder with a major at stake. This time, he was two shots behind on the par-5 14th, tried to lay up with a 2-iron and hit it out-of-bounds to make double bogey. They shared second place, stretching the American drought to six straight majors without winning. Despite meaningless bogeys on the last two holes, Clarke closed with an evenpar 70. “Pretty amazing right now,” Clarke said. “It’s been a dream since I’ve been a kid to win the Open, like any kid’s dream is, and I’m able to do it, which just feels incredible.” Northern Ireland had gone 63 years — since Fred Daly in the 1947 British Open — without winning a major. Now it has three of the last six.

UNITED STATES PLAYERS REACT after their Women’s World Cup final loss to Japan on Sunday in Frankfurt, Germany.
Cup CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1B
104th minute of overtime to give the Americans a 2-1 lead, Homare Sawa flicked in a corner kick in the 117th to tie it. It was the fifth goal of the tournament for Sawa, who was playing in her fifth World Cup. “We ran and ran,” Sawa said. “We were exhausted, but we kept running.” The Americans had beaten Brazil on penalty kicks in a quarterfinal, but they didn’t have the same touch Sunday. Give Kaihori credit for some of that. Shannon Boxx took the f irst U.S. shot, and it banged off Kaihori’s right leg as she dove. After Aya Miyama made her penalty, Carli Lloyd stepped up and sent her shot soaring over the crossbar. As the crowd gasped, Lloyd covered her mouth in dismay. Solo saved Japan’s next
shot, but Kaihori made an impressive two-handed save on a shot by Tobin Heath. “This is a team effort,” Kaihori said. “In the penalty shootout I just had to believe in myself and I was very confident.” Solo came up with a save, and Wambach buried her penalty kick. But Japan need to make just one more, and Saki Kumagai did. “It’s tough to do two rounds of penalties,” Wambach said. “The keeper knows in a lot of ways where we’re going to go. She made some great saves.” It’s been 12 years since the United States has won the World Cup, and this team was certain they were the ones to break the drought. They’d needed to beat Italy in a twogame playoff just to get into the World Cup, then lost two games in a three-month span, an unusual “bad streak” for the defending Olympic champions. After easy wins in their first two games in Germany, the
Self, Kruger to attend Illini alumni event CHAMPAIGN, ILL. — Kansas University basketball coach Bill Self and Oklahoma coach Lon Kruger will attend University of Illinois hoops alumni weekend events in early August, the university has dad, Marty, who is Wichita North’s junior varsity coach. “I think he’s obviously a really good shooter. He can get his shot any time he wants. He’s getting better on defense. As he gets stronger, he gets better. “I think he’s actually a better passer than scorer, (but) he has to score so much for us, that’s what people know him as. I think he’s an all-around guard who can play the 1 or the 2. He obviously has to get bigger and stronger and work on his defense. Most kids that are younger need to work on that.” Frankamp works with a personal strength and conditioning coach — Marty’s former basketball teammate at Coffeyville Community College, Roy Birch. Marty, meanwhile, is Con-

Former Illini coach Kruger will attend an alumni game on Aug. 6. ner’s personal hoops coach in the gym. On most days, the goal is for Conner to make between 300 and 400 shots before hitting the showers. “I think to be as good as you can be, you have to put in extra work,” Conner Frankamp said. “I have a lot to improve on. I have to keep working hard on everything.” He’s happy to do that while hoping to lead North to a state title or two the next two seasons. Then it’s off to his favorite university. “This is a relief to have a dream come true and just happiness that it is actually happening,” Frankamp said. ●

Americans lost to Sweden — their first loss ever in World Cup group play. But they rallied with one of the most riveting finishes ever in a World Cup game — men’s or women’s — against Brazil in the quarterfinals. Down a player for almost an hour and on the verge of making their earliest exit ever from a major tournament, Wambach’s magnif icent, leaping header in the 122nd minute tied the game. The Americans beat Brazil on penalty kicks and, just like that, a nation was hooked. Hollywood celebrities, pro athletes, even folks who don’t know a bicycle kick from a Schwinn were captivated by the U.S. women and charmed by their grit and can-do attitude that is uniquely — proudly — American. Even President Barack Obama was a fan, taking to Twitter himself on Sunday morning to wish the team well.

Dear Desperate: They already know that. They simply don’t like it. You might be able to change them with a great deal of patience and behavior modification. Otherwise, learn how to deal with them in the way that annoys you least. Switching seats with Dad at a restaurant would have been gracious of you and not a big deal. But there is no reason your inlaws have to be the first to see all potential purchases. Take
‘Mann’ chronicles toxic behavior Like the best mysteries, the documentary “Mann v. Ford” (8 p.m., HBO) not only presents evidence of a heinous crime but opens a curtain on a very particular corner of the world. Located some 40 miles from Manhattan, Upper Ringwood, N.J., could be a thousand miles away. It’s forested and isolated, and its population, known as the “Ramapough Mountain People” to some and as “The Jackson Whites” to others, has lived among themselves for hundreds of years. Like many clannish mountain people, they have been met with suspicion and prejudice by outsiders. In the 1960s, the Ford Motor Co. opened a car plant in nearby Mahwah, N.J., and began dumping paint and industrial solvents in the nearby abandoned mines. People began to get sick and cancer became epidemic. As one Ramapough explains it, “There are no elders here.” “Mann” interviews lawyers and journalists out to prove that Ford deliberately ignored the plight of the Ramapough because they were so isolated and powerless, and that later efforts by the Environmental Protection Agency to clean up the toxic mess were hampered by corporate interference. Don’t go looking for Ford commercials on HBO anytime soon. Of course, HBO is a commercial-free network. And perhaps that is what has allowed it to air a series of provocative documentaries, from “Gasland,” to “Hot Coffee” to “Mann v. Ford” that show a pattern of predatory corporate behavior. ● Poppy Montgomery stars in the madefor-cable biography “Magic Beyond Words: The J.K. Rowling Story” (7 p.m., Lifetime), a profile of the author of the “Harry Potter” series. On a very basic level, this is a perfect subject for a Lifetime movie. As a young girl, Rowling feels like an outsider. Nobody thinks like she does or reads the books that she likes, and she worries about fitting in. Then, by following her dream and singular vision, she conquers the world. But first we must go beyond the boring bits. Which is most of this movie. “Magic” is not the first film to prove that there are few interesting ways to show a person thinking or a writer writing. Or an unpublished author awaiting her agent’s call. And it doesn’t help that the story’s structure is almost laughably cliche. You can see the flashbacks coming a mile away. Even the flashbacks within the flashbacks!

JACQUELINE BIGAR’S STARS For Monday, July 18: This year, you have a tendency to dream about what could be and then want to make it a reality. How you get your ideas doesn’t make a difference. If you are single, you could meet someone very different and exciting. Try it! You might like it. If you are attached, the two of you benefit from not triggering as much and staying centered. Pisces understands you. The Stars Show the Kind of Day You’ll Have: 5Dynamic; 4-Positive; 3Average; 2-So-so; 1-Difficult Aries (March 21-April 19) ★★★ Honor your feelings and/or intuition more than usual. A boss will be more responsive if approached in this manner. Tonight: You have a lot of thinking to do. Taurus (April 20-May 20) ★★★★★ Zero in on what you want. It is too easy to forget plans because of everything that is going on around you. Tonight: Where people are. Gemini (May 21-June 20) ★★★ A boss or an authority figure could be pushing, and you just
might say “enough.” Tonight: Burning the midnight oil. Cancer (June 21-July 22) ★★★★ People, quite a few of them, could impact your plans and day. You might have several meetings to attend, one after the other. Tonight: Put some music on. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) ★★★★ One-on-one relating becomes increasingly important. Your effort — whether at work or within your home — counts. Tonight: Walk in someone else’s shoes. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) ★★★★★ Defer to others, knowing that it is not your place or the time to make a decision. Others always want the laurels for leadership and choices. Tonight: Share your time with a partner. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) ★★★★ Pace yourself and understand what others expect. You also have your own expectations, which need to be met in order to make you happy. Tonight: Accept an offer. Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) ★★★★★ If you are to get anything done, your imagination needs to be harnessed. You have many great ideas. Tonight: Just
be yourself. Sagittarius (Nov. 22Dec. 21) ★★★ Stay centered, and you will cruise through a money matter. The problem is that you cannot get a handle on the situation, as it is constantly transforming. Tonight: At home. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) ★★★★★ Keep communication flowing. You have changed in the past year, and people are trying to adjust, whether it is conscious or not. Tonight: Hanging out with a friend. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) ★★★ Be aware of a need to stay connected to your desires yet at the same time not overdo it. Listen to your inner voice. Tonight: Your treat. Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) ★★★★★ Stay on top of what is happening. Friends and/or associates give you heavy feedback. Absorb the information, understanding you will know when it is time to make the right decision. Tonight: Whatever puts a smile on your face. — The astrological forecast should be read for entertainment only.

Dear Annie: My husband and I have been happily married for 10 years. Two years ago, we both lost our jobs, so we moved in with his parents. The problem is, my inlaws are so used to getting their way that they become ang ry when they don’t. Friends and family members usually give in to avoid a fight. My husband and I, on the other hand, stand our ground. Last week, we went to dinner at a new restaurant. When the hostess seated us, my father-in-law became upset and quite loud when he did not get a seat with his back against the wall. He demanded that I switch seats with him. When I refused, he yelled and cussed at me. He is like this every time we go out, regardless of the circumstances. He finds fault with everything. I understand my in-laws are up in age, but I think they go overboard. My husband and I found employment six months ago and are now looking to f ind our own space. My in-laws get upset every time we look at a house without taking them along. They say they want to be the first ones to see the place. I bought a new car last month, and they were angry because my parents saw the car before they did. They said it
