LAWRENCE ARTIST LORI NORWOOD CREATED A STEEL AND GLASS SCULPTURE OF PENTATHLON ATHLETES that is going to be on display at the 2012 Summer Olympics in London. Norwood is a former pentathlon world champion.

Pentathlete-turned-artist captures spirit of multifaceted sport in sculpture By Shaun Hittle sdhittle@ljworld.com

If the pentathlon sounds like a difficult event — athletes compete in five separate events: running, swimming, fencing, shooting and horseback riding — try turning it into art. “It’s definitely a challenge,” said Lawrence artist Lori Norwood, who showed off a sculpture depicting the sport recently in her North Lawrence studio. “How do you represent all five?” Norwood’s piece, titled “The All-

Around Athlete,” will be sent to the London Olympics and displayed at the Olympic headquarters this summer. If anyone was suited to create a sculpture honoring the century-old pentathlon, it’s Norwood. Still the only American woman to win a world championship in the event, in 1989, Norwood took up the sport — designed to encompass the skills needed to be a successful 19th-century soldier — when she was 15. An “Army brat,” Norwood was involved THE SCULPTURE REPRESENTS THE MODERN PENTATHLON EVENTS, from left, of pistol shooting, show jumping on Please see PENTATHLON, page 2A a horse, running, fencing and swimming.

TOPEKA — Like schools across the nation, Kansas University is facing flat or reduced state and national funding, and pressure to stop increasing tuition. To help address those concerns, KU is now increasing its emphasis on building partnerships with the private sector. “There is a limit on how much we can increase tuition,” Chancellor Bernadette Gray-Little said at a recent budget workshop with the Kansas Board of Regents. “Our fundraising from corporations has been very KANSAS minimal,” she UNIVERSITY said, adding that KU is making a concerted effort to increase the amount it raises from corporations and foundations. In the last fiscal year, KU had $346.7 million in research funding. Of that amount, $195.7 million came from the federal government; $116 million came from institutional, state and local sources; $25.4 million from nonprofits; and $9.6 million from the private sector. Provost Jeff Vitter said KU has a lot of room to increase that share of private sector research dollars. “It’s a very exciting opportunity,” Vitter said. Julie Nagel, director of industrial partnerships, has been tasked with putting Please see KU, page 2A

But Koranda said the design of the plate wasn’t finalized until recently. Then, she said, 50 plates were distributed earlier this month, but it was discovered that the plates did not have the correct sequential numbers required by law enforcement. “The plate has to match what is in the system,” she said.

So, she said, the corrections are being made. “No way are we dragging our feet,” she said.

in numerous sports all her life. One day, someone saw her swimming at a pool and suggested the pentathlon. For the next few years, training and competing were her life. A Google search of Norwood’s name pulls up several features, including a 1990 Sports Illustrated article calling Norwood a “Renaissance Woman.” Norwood retired from the pentathlon in 1991, years before it became a women’s Olympic sport in 2000. After retiring, Norwood went to the University of Texas, earned an art degree and found her second career love: sculpting. Norwood and her husband, local orthopedic surgeon Doug Stull, moved to Lawrence in 2007 with their two daughters, Isabella, 10, and Evie, 7. She worked with local sculptor Jim Brothers

Associated Press

KANSAS CITY, MO. — Law enforcement agencies across Kansas are looking for a man posing as a Highway Patrol trooper and driving a white Crown Victoria after a driver reported being pulled over and handcuffed this week. Officials said they also are investigating whether the traffic stop last Monday on Kansas 14, two miles northwest of Nashville in southern Kansas, is related to an incident earlier this month in Miami County, in which someone posing as an officer pulled a woman over and sexually assaulted her. In both cases, the suspect was described as a white man, around 5 feet 10 inches tall, with facial hair and driving a white Crown Victoria. In last Monday’s incident, the victim reported being pulled over around 2:30 p.m. by a car with a light bar on top and the words “Highway State Trooper” on the driver’s side door. The Kansas Highway Patrol said the alleged trooper didn’t tell the man why he pulled him over, instead placing him in handcuffs and searching his car for 10 to 15 minutes before releasing him. Kingman County Sheriff Randy Hill said the sus-

and painter Louis Copt, to hone her craft, working on commissioned pieces as well as her own artistic creations, displayed at various art events. When she got the call from the Olympic committee, Norwood said she was given wide latitude to create the sculpture. “They said, ‘Here’s the Fed Ex number; send it,’” she said. Norwood settled on a sculpture she describes as “flowing” and “linear.” It started with miniature clay figurines before Norwood began the furious and intense twomonth task of actually creating the sculpture. The piece is complete, and the crate’s ready for shipping, Norwood said with relief. She wasn’t able to give an estimate of how many hours it took to complete the work. “I’ve been thinking about it for a long time,” she said.

This is a very high priority for us. Because this person was seen with a sidearm, we do consider him dangerous. We don’t know what his thoughts or intentions are in these things.” — Kingman County Sheriff Randy Hill pect is 20 to 30 years old, weighs about 210 pounds and had a black mustache. He was wearing a dark blue uniform with a hat, handcuffs and a duty belt with a sidearm, Hill said, noting the car has emergency lights on the roof and a spotlight on the driver’s side. “This is a very high priority for us,” the sheriff said. “Because this person was seen with a sidearm, we do consider him dangerous. We don’t know what his thoughts or intentions are in these things.” Hill said he has been in contact with the Osawatomie Police Department, which continues to look for an apparent impostor who stopped a woman around 10 p.m. July 2. The 18-year-old woman said she was sexually assaulted by the man, who was driving a white Crown Victoria with lights on the

front dash and a siren. She described the man as being in his early to mid-20s, with a mustache and goatee and had a law enforcement badge sewn onto his shirt. He also had a gun and a badge on his belt. Osawatomie police detective Donnie Basore said it’s too early to tell whether the two cases are related. He said officers have been urged to be patient if someone they’re pulling over doesn’t stop immediately because they aren’t sure that the patrol car is real. The Highway Patrol also has reminded its troopers that motorists might be afraid to pull over because of the reported impostor, so they need to keep that in mind when making a traffic stop. “Someone is preying on individuals because of the credibility we have, and the trust people have that when our lights are activated, they’ll be dealt with by a professional law enforcement officer,” said Gary Warner, a Highway Patrol spokesman in Wichita. He said the patrol urges anyone who isn’t sure they’re being pulled over by a real law enforcement officer to either call 911 or *47, which puts them straight to the state patrol. Drivers on the Kansas Turnpike should dial *582.

TOPEKA — Four Kansas Republicans seeking reelection to the U.S. House raised significantly more money than their wouldbe Democratic challengers in the reporting period that ended June 30. Two of the four Republicans have no major party opposition in the primary or general election, though one faces a Libertarian candidate in November. The numbers were reported to the Federal Election Commission for the period from April 1 through June 30. Former Kansas Republican National Committeeman and 4th District Rep. Mike Pompeo of Wichita finished the reporting period with $1 million in cash on hand. He raised more than $138,500 in individual contributions and $123,000 in PAC money. The district envelops Wichita and surrounding counties — a mix of aviation, manufacturing and agriculture industries. Pompeo is unopposed in August but will face the winner between Democrats Robert Tillman and Esau Freeman. Tillman reported raising $252 during the reporting period and loaning his campaign $25,000. Freeman didn’t report raising any money during the reporting period. Republican Lynn Jenkins, who is seeking her

The former state legislator and state treasurer took in nearly $140,000 from individuals and another $210,000 from political action committees. The 2nd District covers the majority of eastern Kansas, from the Nebraska border south, and includes the cities of Topeka, Lawrence and Pittsburg, as well as Fort Leavenworth. Jenkins’ fundraising exceeded that of her three Democratic challengers, who reported raising a combined $52,000. Lawrence attorney Bob Eye raised $14,200 during the quarter, while Tobias Schlingensiepen, a Topeka pastor, raised $37,100. The third, Ottawa farmer Scott Barnhart, reported that he didn’t raise anything during the period. State Democratic officials said candidates were hampered in fundraising because of the delay in redrawing the state’s political boundaries. A three-judge federal panel decided on the new lines for the Kansas House, Senate and four congressional districts after legislators failed to do so during the 2012 session. Rep.

Lawrence mom launches community diaper drive ———

Program to benefit low-income families By Karrey Britt kbritt@ljworld.com

New Lawrence mom Julie Fugett was searching online to save money on disposable diapers when she came across a charity effort called “Every Little Bottom” that intrigued her. She did a little digging about the charity and came across a 2010 study on the use of diapers a m o n g low-income families. The report found that families would reuse diapers or leave their children in diapers longer when they couldn’t afford to buy enough. That leads to diaper rash and fussier babies, and can even result in cases of child abuse. “I was kind of horrified. I haven’t even thought about that,” she said.

Fugett, who has an 11-week-old daughter, knows firsthand the cost of diapers and how many a baby goes through. “Holy smokes. A lot and a lot,” she said. A baby usually needs 10 to 12 diapers a day, which typically costs between $100 and $120 per month. There aren’t many programs that provide such a necessity to low-income families. While on maternity leave, Fugett called her Kansas University colleague Thelma Simons, who serves on the board at Douglas County’s Just Food food program, to see whether they could organize a diaper drive at their workplace. They ended up taking it a step further and organized a communitywide, monthlong diaper drive. So far, they’ve collect-

Invention may change tune of leaders in piano industry KANSAS CITY, MO. (AP) — Don Gilmore, a Kansas City mechanical engineer, has invented a self-tuning piano kit that could revolutionize — if not destroy — an industry headquartered in his hometown. The computerized device, which could sell for as little as $300, could be retrofitted for older pianos, doing much of the job of a piano tuner. On the other hand, the kit would add one more layer of complexity to an instrument that already has thousands of moving parts. Whether that means less work — or more — for members of the Piano Technicians Guild based in Kansas City, Kan., is anybody’s guess. Gilmore, who works for the Lake City Army Ammunition Plant in Independence, is both a piano player and an inventor with notebooks full of ideas. The owner of three piano-tuning patents (and two more for a self-playing guitar), Gilmore once belonged to the guild. Earlier this month Popular Science featured his invention in a multipage spread. Don Mannino, director of field services for Kawai America, one of the largest piano makers in the

Nebraska mom who married at 14 tries to regain custody FALLS CITY, NEB. (AP) — A Nebraska mom whose marriage at age 14 generated headlines is trying — along with her husband — to regain custody of their children. The Lincoln Journal Star reported Sunday that 21-year-old Crystal Koso and 29-year-old Matthew Koso were in court last week, listening as a lawyer explained why the state wants to terminate their parental rights. The couple’s three children and a child fathered by Dominic Pagnano Jr. while Matthew Koso was in prison for impregnating Crystal Koso at age 13 have been in state custody since 2010. Court documents seeking to terminate their rights argue that Matthew Koso should lose his parental rights because he neglected his children, failed to give them the care and protection necessary for their health, education and morals. It also said he is unfit as a parent, due to debauchery, use of alcohol or drugs or repeated lewd and lascivious behavior. Crystal Koso is accused of neglecting her children and being an unfit mother. And the petition says Pagnano neglected and abandoned his child. The three parents all denied the allegations. The Kosos drew national attention in 2005. Then 14-year-old Crystal Koso became pregnant and married Matthew Koso in Hiawatha, Kan., with her mother’s permission. At that time, their marriage was allowed with parental consent, but the case led Kansas lawmakers to set a minimum marriage pianist is one of the only exceptions, and it’s a pain to get your piano tuned. It’s like a hundred bucks.”

Doubts linger Guild vice president Dave Tabachnick of East Northport, N.Y., who has worked for Ray Charles, Billy Joel and Marvin Hamlisch, is dubious. “I don’t think this is ever going to happen,” he said. Even if it does, said Milton Horne, president of the guild’s local chapter, tuning is only one thing techs do to maintain a piano. “We also must make sure a piano is well-regulated,” he said. “How does it feel when it plays? Does it play smoothly? How do the hammers hit? Then there’s the tone quality, which a tech can adjust.” The inventor has always had his share of detractors. “I’ve been defending this thing for years,” Gilmore said. “With any invention people try to shoot it down — especially piano tuners.” Others worry the heat will damage the piano. “The keys in your pocket are warmer than these strings,” Gilmore said. “No metallurgical effects take place at such minuscule temperatures. There are a lot of nonscientific people in the music industry (who can be) afraid of the technology.” Kent Swafford, a piano technician with the UMKC Conservatory of Music and Dance, and president of the guild from 2005 to 2007, isn’t afraid. And he’s not a critic. “I know Donald, and I’m not about to dismiss his efforts,” he said. “He’s been persistent, but he’s demonstrated that it could work.” Gilmore said he’s just trying to innovate, not put piano techs out of business. “Nobody would ever invent anything if you were afraid of making old technology obsolete,” he said. “Because basically all inventions do that.”

The Kosos drew national attention in 2005. Then 14-yearold Crystal Koso became pregnant and married Matthew Koso in Hiawatha, Kan., with her mother’s permission. age of 15. Nebraska allows people as young as 17 to marry with parental consent. Because of Crystal Koso’s pregnancy, Matthew Koso served 15 months in prison and had to register as a sex offender. Pagnano fathered a child with Crystal Koso that was born while her husband was in prison. Pagnano is now serving a prison sentence for sexual assault of a child and possession of child pornography. The Kosos argue that state officials and case workers have the wrong idea, saying that, initially, someone reported that they had a dirty house, and that police or social workers checked on that report at inopportune times. The Kosos deny that any abuse occurred and say they have completed the required parenting classes. Neither is employed, but Matthew Koso collects a military pension from an injury he sustained shortly after joining the Marines. The Kosos say they have done what they can to improve their house, but they can’t afford to do everything officials asked them to do. “We want the kids to come home, but we’re not totally sure that that’s what we’re gonna get,” Matthew Koso said.

also are limited resources for providing diapers. She said the Just Food partner agencies will provide them when they have them, so she was happy to hear they may soon be stocked. “I think families are struggling a lot. I think they are struggling to meet their basic needs, and if they have an infant in the family, diapers are a basic need,” she said. Simons, one of the Lawrence organizers, describes herself as a treehugger and said that at first, she didn’t like the idea of collecting disposable diapers. She did some research, however, and found there are many reasons that low-income families can’t use cloth diapers. Among them: they often don’t have access to a washer and dryer, most laundromats prohibit the washing of cloth diapers for sanitary reasons, and many child care providers won’t deal with cloth diapers. “It was just kind of an aha! moment for me,” she said.

Just Food staff and volunteers will collect the donations and distribute them to partner agencies like Ballard Community Services and First Christian Church. “This goes to show the power that each individual has to make a difference in the lives of thousands of people in their community,” said Jeremy Farmer, executive director of Just Food. The food program served a monthly record 7,047 people in June; 12 percent of them were children 5 and under. “There’s obviously a huge need,” Farmer said. “People are faced with tough choices.” MariaAna Garza is a registered nurse and case manager with Healthy Families Douglas County, which works to prevent child abuse and neglect. “I see a lot of need for diapers because they are very expensive,” she said. — Health reporter Karrey Britt can be “It’s especially hard for reached at 832-7190.

SOUND OFF

Q:

I keep seeing people walking their dogs in the hottest part of the day on days that are 100 degrees or hotter, out in the full sun, on burning sidewalks. I can’t help but wonder if that isn’t dangerous for most dogs, considering that dogs are covered in fur coats and can only “sweat” through their tongues.

A:

Dori Villalon, Lawrence Humane Society executive director, said walking dogs in the heat of the day can definitely be dangerous, especially for a dog’s paws on hot cement and for dogs that are old, have medical conditions or that have a short-muzzled face. Villalon suggests people alter their routine and start taking their animals out to exercise either early in the morning or later in the evening to prevent paw burns and heat exhaustion.

LAW ENFORCEMENT REPORT

• Lawrence police arrested one Lawrence man for aggravated assault, aggravated battery and criminal property damage, and another Lawrence man for aggravated assault and battery after an altercation with Lawrence construction workers about 12:30 p.m. Sunday at the intersection of Sixth Street and Kasold Drive. Lawrence police Sgt. Randy Roberts said that construction workers at the intersection had turned off the area’s water after damaging or breaking a water line. The two men, one of whom owned a business affected by the shutdown, approached the construction workers with a hammer and a board with nails sticking out of it. Roberts said the suspects, 35 and 40 years old, were either angry for having their water shut off, or were trying to threaten the construction workers in order to get the water turned back on. Late Sunday night, Roberts said he did not have exact details on the altercation.

Climbers rise to challenge of scaling concrete walls By Rick Plumlee The Wichita Eagle

WICHITA — Saturday’s midmorning sun and temperatures, already in the mid-90s, didn’t discourage these folks from plastering themselves against a hot concrete wall and climbing. They were smiling as they scaled a 100-foot wall of an abandoned concrete plant, which serves as cliffs for members of the Kansas Cliff Club, near 47th Street South and K-15. “It’s a good place to train,” said club member J.D. Ratts, a 56-year-old pilot. “We don’t exactly have rocks and mountains around here.” The nonprofit, grassroots club was established in 1998 shortly after avid climbers J.F. Dumont and his wife, Chantale Kirouac, moved to Wichita from Montreal when he took a job at Boeing. They saw the old plant as the perfect spot to establish walls that simulate the cliffs and obstacles encountered on the real stuff in such places as the Wichita Mountains in Oklahoma and Horseshoe Canyon or Sam’s Throne in Arkansas. From a handful of members, the club has grown to about 125 — ranging in age from 8 to 80.

“Some members in their 20s and 30s really get after it,” Ratts said. “I do it for the exercise and love of the outdoors.” Even when it’s hot. So while others tried to stay cool in a pool, inside by the air conditioner or under a shade tree, a handful of members were putting on harnesses and climbing the walls, which have more than 300 routes. Most members climb at the club’s walls two or three times a week so they’ll be sharp and in shape for destination cliffs and rocks. “You get a good workout,” said member Jason Kruse, a 41-year-old physician’s assistant. “It’s good to get well-hydrated before coming out here.” There are two exterior walls with routes that are 85 and 65 feet. Four inside chambers have walls ranging from 16 feet to 35 feet with varying degrees of difficulty and obstacles. The routes on the inside walls are changed once a year. “It’s a challenge for the best climbers,” member Dean Mehler said during a break after a climb. To help cover basic costs, including lease payments and liability insurance, the club has membership fees that range from $225 for an individual to $175 for a student.

Before becoming a member, a person must demonstrate basic climbing skills and agree to a number of conditions, such as no horseplay or alcohol and to always put safety first. No one climbs alone. “It’s not just show up and have a good day,” Mehler said. “It’s a serious sport.” Shanna Matthews, a 28-year-old registered nurse, was out Saturday as a prospective member and climbed a wall. She and her husband, Josh, had done rock climbing when they were in college. After climbing last week during a trip to Vail, Colo., she said, “Our interest is piqued. It’s a good exercise for the whole body.” Club members include lawyers, doctors, teachers and engineers. “This sport isn’t like it used to be a long time ago, when it was kind of an outlaw sport and attracted people who took chances in life,” said Mehler, an electrical engineer. “Now they are people who like to solve problems, push the limits. The difference is back then they took chances for the sake of taking risks. “Now climbers are more about risk management, solving problems. They want to get home.”

TOPEKA (AP) — The Wabaunsee County town of Harveyville is firming up plans to rebuild after its historic church building was destroyed in a killer tornado. The Topeka Capital-Journal reported that plans call for a one-story structure to be built on the same land where the former building stood for more than 100 years. It was leveled nearly five months ago in an EF2 tornado packing winds of 120 to 130 mph. One person was killed in the tornado, and about a dozen others

were injured. The Rev. Dennis Irwin calls the reconstruction “very exciting.” One goal is to have a dedicated space in the new building for a food pantry.

EPA reviews part of power plant pollution rule By Matthew Daly Associated Press

WASHINGTON — The Environmental Protection Agency is reviewing part of a controversial rule that sets the first federal standards to reduce toxic air pollution from power plants. The rule, issued in December, is aimed at curbing mercury and other toxic pollutants from coaland oil-fired power plants. The Obama administration calls the rule a sensible step to reduce pollution, but Republicans have denounced it as a part of a “war on coal.” The rule could force hundreds of the nation’s oldest and dirtiest power plants to clean up or shut down. The review, announced Friday, focuses on an aspect of the rule that applies to future power plants. The technical review is intended to clarify how the new standards would apply to five plants proposed in Kansas, Texas, Georgia and Utah. EPA officials called the review a routine step that will have no impact on standards already set for existing power plants. Those rules will protect millions of families from air pollution, the agency said. The review was prompted by criticism from power plant operators who said the rule as drafted was confusing for new plants. A spokesman for the American Lung Association, which pushed for the power plant rule, called the review “narrowly crafted.” While the group is not happy with the change, “it is not a significant deal,” said spokesman Paul Billings. An official for one of the power companies that sought the review said the EPA’s decision to reconsider standards for new plants was an acknowledgment by the agency that its standards are unachievable. Ken Anderson, executive vice president of Colorado-based Tri-State Generation and Transmission Association, said the

EPA should review the overall rule “and come back with a regulatory standard that has a proper timeframe and is rooted in the realities of science and engineering.” Tri-State has proposed a coal-fired power plant in Kansas. The EPA rule is intended to slash mercury and other toxic emissions from the oldest and most polluting oil- and coal-fired power plants. The EPA has had authority to set such rules since 1990, but did not impose them until late last year, after a court threw out an attempt by the Bush administration to exempt power plants from such controls. Power plants are the largest remaining source of man-made mercury in the environment. Mercury is a toxic metal that’s known to impair brain development in children, including those exposed in the womb. When fully implemented in 2016, the standards will slash mercury pollution from burning coal by 90 percent, lungdamaging acid gases by 88 percent and sootproducing sulfur dioxide by 41 percent. Environmental groups and public health advocates say the rule will prevent

thousands of premature deaths and avoid millions of dollars in health care costs for asthma and other illnesses. Republicans and some industry groups say the benefits of the regulation do not outweigh rising electricity bills, jobs lost from shuttered power plants and the nearly $10 billion per year cost. They have portrayed the regulation as an effort by the EPA to kill coal, which is responsible for more than 40 percent of U.S. electricity production. Changing economics, such as low natural gas prices and reduced electricity demand, are major factors in older coal-fired power plants shutting down. The review of standards for new plants is due to be completed next March.

PENN STATE OFFICE OF PHYSICAL PLANT WORKERS COVER the statue of former football coach Joe Paterno near Beaver Stadium on Penn State’s campus in State College, Pa., on Sunday. The university on Sunday took down the monument in the wake of an investigative report that found the late coach and three other top Penn State administrators concealed sex abuse claims against retired assistant coach Jerry Sandusky.

NCAA to punish Penn State; Paterno statue removed By Marc Levy and Michael Rubinkam Associated Press

STATE COLLEGE, PA. — Shortly after Penn State tore down its famed statue of coach Joe Paterno, the NCAA announced Sunday it would impose “corrective and punitive” sanctions against the university in the wake of a devastating report that asserted top university officials buried child sex abuse allegations against a retired assistant coach more than a decade ago. The NCAA, acting with rare speed, said it will spell out the penalties today. The governing body did not disclose further details. If precedent holds from recent cases, Penn State will face a loss of scholarships and a multiyear ban from bowl games — and with it, the financial windfall and showcase that comes with postseason play. Yet NCAA President Mark Emmert cautioned last week that he hasn’t ruled out the possibility of shutting down the Penn State football program altogether, saying he had “never seen anything as egregious” as the Jerry Sandusky sex abuse scandal. A harsh penalty would have repercussions well beyond football, whose large profits — more than $50 million, according to the U.S. Department of Education — subsidize dozens of other sports programs at the school. The potential for a historic NCAA penalty also worries a region whose economy is built at least partially on the strength and popularity of the football program. “It’s going to kill our town,” said Derek Leonard, 31, a university construction project coordinator who grew up in the area. Emmert has seemingly put the Penn State matter on the fast track. Other cases that were strictly about violating the NCAA rulebook have dragged on for months and even years. As Penn State awaited its fate, construction workers took down the

larger-than-life monument to its Hall of Fame coach — on the six-month anniversary of his death from lung cancer at age 85. The Paterno family released a statement criticizing Penn State’s decision to remove the statue, saying it was made in haste and before all the facts about Paterno’s role in the Sandusky scandal were known. “Tearing down the statue of Joe Paterno does not serve the victims of Jerry Sandusky’s horrible crimes or help heal the Penn State community. We believe the only way to help the Sandusky victims is to uncover the full truth,” said the family, which has vowed its own investigation following the release of an investigative report by former FBI Director Louis Freeh that found that Paterno and three other top Penn State administrators concealed sex abuse claims against Sandusky. “Despite (Freeh’s) obviously flawed and onesided presentation, the university believes it must acquiesce and accept that Joe Paterno has been given a fair and complete hearing,” the statement said. The bronze statue, weighing more than 900 pounds, was erected in 2001 in honor of Paterno’s record-setting 324th Division I coaching victory and his “contributions to the university.” Students chanted, “We are Penn State” as it came down Sunday morning. Penn State President Rodney Erickson said he decided the sculpture had to go because it “has become a source of division and an obstacle to healing.” In Washington, the White House said President Barack Obama believed “it was the right decision.”

AURORA, COLO. — University of Colorado officials were looking Sunday into whether James Holmes used his position in a graduate program to collect hazardous materials, but school officials weren’t saying whether they knew the suspect in a movie theater massacre was anything more than a hard-working student. Law enforcement officials also revealed that Holmes, 24, has not been cooperating with them and that it could take months to learn what prompted the attack early Friday on a packed theater of moviegoers watching the premiere of the latest Batman movie. The assault killed 12 and left 58 wounded. Investigators found a Batman mask inside Holmes’ apartment after they finished clearing the home of booby traps and ammunition, a law enforcement official close to the investigation said Sunday on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak to the news media. Meanwhile, President Barack Obama flew to Colorado for a few hours to comfort residents in a state that’s critical to the November election. He began his visit with the family members of the victims at the University of Colorado Hospital, which treated 23 of the people injured; 10 remain there, seven hurt critically. The hospital is a short drive from the site of the shooting. After meeting with the families, he said that he was there “not as president but as a father and a husband.” He said that “we can all understand what it would be to have someone taken from us in this fashion.”

More on suspect’s background Holmes was being held in solitary confinement at a Denver-area county detention facility, Aurora Police Chief Dan Oates said, and is “lawyered up.” “He’s not talking to us,” the chief said. He is scheduled for an initial hearing today at 10:30 a.m. and has been assigned a public defender. Police have said that Holmes began buying guns at Denver-area stores nearly two months before Friday’s shooting and that he received at least 50 packages in four

months at his home and at school. Also on Sunday, a gun range owner east of Denver said he recently rejected a membership application from Holmes in part because of a bizarre voice mail greeting on Holmes’ phone. While the University of Colorado disclosed that it was cooperating with police in the case, that disclosure was one of the few the university has made three days after the massacre. It remained unclear whether Holmes’ professors and other Holmes students at his 35-student Ph.D. program noticed anything unusual about his behavior. His reasons for quitting the program in June, just a year into the five- to seven-year program, also remained a mystery. Holmes recently took an intense, three-part oral exam that marks the end of the first year. Those who do well continue with their studies and shift to full-time research, while

those who don’t do well meet with advisers and discuss their options, including retaking the exam. University officials would not say if he passed, citing privacy concerns. The university said Holmes gave no reason for his withdrawal, a decision he made in June. Jacque Montgomery, a spokeswoman for the University of Colorado medical school, said that police have told the school to not talk about Holmes. The university also took down the website for its graduate neuroscience program on Saturday. Dan Keeney, president of DPK Public Relations in Dallas, said asking for silence from university employees because of a police investigation was appropriate, but taking down the website was “indefensible” for a publicly funded university unless the school believed it contained inaccurate information relating to the program. “It’s an indefensible action,” he said. “It’s disappointing to hear that they would take that action because it suggests that it’s

not in the public’s interest to have access to that information and I think it is in the public’s interest.”

Day of remembrance Amid the continuing investigation of Holmes and his background, Sunday was a day for healing and remembrance in Aurora, with Obama arriving to visit with families of the victims and a vigil that began in the early evening. Obama said he told the families of the victims of Friday’s massacre that “all of America and much of the world is thinking about them.” Congregations across Colorado prayed for the shooting victims and their relatives. Churches sent out social-media appeals for neighbors who wanted to join in remembrance. Elderly churchgoers at a Presbyterian church within walking distance of Holmes’ apartment joined in prayer, though none had ever met him. Hundreds gathered for prayers and healing at the vigil Sunday night, where a banner said, “Angels Walk With Those Who Grieve.”

Poverty on track to rise to highest level since 1960s By Hope Yen Associated Press

WASHINGTON — The ranks of America’s poor are on track to climb to levels unseen in nearly half a century, erasing gains from the war on poverty in the 1960s amid a weak economy and fraying government safety net. Census figures for 2011 will be released this fall in the critical weeks ahead of the November elections. The Associated Press surveyed more than a dozen economists, think tanks and academics, both nonpartisan and those with known liberal or conservative leanings, and found a broad consensus: The official poverty rate will rise from 15.1 percent in 2010, climbing as high as 15.7 percent. Several predicted a more modest gain, but even a 0.1 percentage point increase would put poverty at the highest level since 1965.

Medicaid, welfare and food stamps diminishes. “The issues aren’t just with public benefits.

U.S. withdrawal halfway done By Deb Riechmann Associated Press

KABUL, AFGHANISTAN — This year’s pullout of 23,000 American troops from Afghanistan is at the halfway mark, U.S. Gen. John Allen, the top commander of U.S. and N A T O forces, said Allen Sunday in an interview with The Associated Press. It’s a kind of milestone toward wrapping up the U.S. and NATO combat role after a decade in the war-torn nation — but Allen cautioned against putting too much emphasis on the U.S. troop drawdown, because the U.S.led coalition’s campaign is continuing. Still, Allen said that he knows the clock is ticking on the NATO coalition’s combat mission, which is to end at the close of 2014 — just 29 months from now. In a wide-ranging interview in his office at NATO headquarters in Kabul, Allen also said that while Afghan security forces were increasingly taking the lead, more work needs to be done to shore up their confidence in planning and executing operations. He said this summer’s coalition operations were aimed at pushing insurgents farther from population centers, expanding

the security zone around the capital, Kabul, and getting more Afghan forces into the lead in the east, which borders Pakistan. The Afghan army and police force are battling low levels of literacy, corruption within their ranks and lack of equipment and experience, but Allen said they were showing themselves to be increasingly capable on the battlefield. Getting them into the lead is an essential goal of the next 29 months, he said. “We haven’t even recruited the whole Afghan national security force. That’s not going to happen for another couple months, but by Oct. 1, we hope to be at 352,000,” he said. “We don’t finish completely fielding the Afghan forces until December 2013. So just at that level alone there is significant work remaining to be done.” About 90 percent of coalition operations now are partnered with Afghan forces, and Afghan forces are in the lead more than 40 percent of the time, he said. “We want to get that number higher, and that will come from battalion and higher units being able to take the lead with respect to planning,” he said. “Planning is really the hallmark of any large military formation, and it’s typically a weakness in new formations and new armies. So we are putting a lot of effort into teaching them how to plan, ex-

ecute, recover from the mission and then re-cock and go back out again.” By the end of this year and into next year, Allen would like to see 5,500 personnel working in police and army advisory teams, but now the mission has 20 percent fewer advisers than it seeks. “I don’t know if we will make up all of that,” he said, “but it’s an ongoing request, and I don’t miss an opportunity to emphasize that we really do need these folks.” As the Afghan forces gear up, the exit of foreign troops continues. The drawdown of 23,000 U.S. troops this year, now slightly more than half completed, will accelerate in the coming few months, he said. “August will be the heaviest month,” Allen said. “A lot is coming out now, and a great deal will come out in August and early September. We’ll be done probably around mid-September or so.”

NATO troops killed in attack KABUL, AFGHANISTAN — A person wearing an Afghan national security force uniform turned his weapon Sunday against civilian contractors with the U.S.-led military coalition, killing three. In other incidents, five NATO service members were killed in roadside bombings over the past two days. NATO said the attack on the civilian coalition workers occurred in western Afghanistan but disclosed few other details. The gunman was killed during the incident, which is still being investigated. No further information about the civilians who died was released. Afghan security forces or militants dressed in their uniforms have been killing a rising number of coalition forces, but they have not been specifically targeting contractors working for the coalition. So far this year, 26 foreign troops have been killed in this type of attack.

Doctors debate kids’ cholesterol screening By Lindsey Tanner Associated Press

CHICAGO — Should all U.S. children get tested for high cholesterol? Doctors are still debating that question months after a government-appointed panel recommended widespread screening that would lead to prescribing medicine for some kids. Fresh criticism was published online today in Pediatrics by researchers at one university who say the guidelines are too aggressive and were influenced by panel members’ financial ties to drugmakers. Eight of the 14 guidelines panel members reported industry ties and disclosed that when their advice was published in December. They contend in a rebuttal article in Pediatrics that company payments covered costs of evaluating whether the drugs are safe and effective but did not influence the recommendations. The ties pose a conflict of interest that “undermines the credibility of both the guidelines and the process through which they were produced,” says the commentary by researchers at the University of California at San Francisco. The authors are Dr. Thomas Newman, a researcher and for-

mer member of a Food and Drug Administration pediatrics advisory committee, and two heart disease researchers, Drs. Mark Pletcher and Stephen Hulley. Pletcher has received research funding from drug and device makers; the other authors said they had no relevant industry ties. Other criticism was published earlier this year in the Journal of the American Medical Association. That critique raised concerns about putting children on choHEALTH lesterol drugs called statins, noting the medicine has been linked with a rare muscle-damaging condition in adults. The guidelines are endorsed by the Academy of Pediatrics, which publishes the journal that carried the critical commentary today. The panel recommends that all U.S. children should get blood tests for high cholesterol as early as age 9 and that testing should begin much earlier for kids at risk of future heart disease, including those with diabetes or a family history of heart problems. Treatment should generally begin with lifestyle changes including diet and exercise, the guidelines say.

A year later, Norway remembers victims of tragedy OSLO, NORWAY — Norway on Sunday paused to commemorate the 77 victims of a bomb and gun massacre that shocked the peaceful nation one year ago, a tragedy that the prime minister said had brought Norwegians together in defense of democracy and tolerance. Anders Behring Breivik, a 33-year-old far-right fanatic, has admitted to the July 22, 2011, attacks: a bombing of the government district in Oslo, killing eight, and a shooting rampage that left 69 dead at the left-wing Labor Party’s youth camp on Utoya island. In a wreath-laying ceremony at the bomb site, Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg said Breivik had

“The bomb and the gunshots were meant to change Norway,” Stoltenberg told a somber crowd of a few hundred people at

the ceremony. “The Norwegian people answered by embracing our values. The perpetrator lost. The people won.” Tarps are still covering the windows of bombdamaged buildings on the plaza, and large cement road blocks stop all but pedestrian traffic. Mounted police and officers with bomb-sniffing dogs were on the site Sunday, but the security was not overbearing, as if to show that Norway was still an open society. Survivors and families of victims gathered for a private ceremony on the island. Eskil Pedersen, a survivor of the massacre and the head of the Labor Party’s youth chapter, urged the crowd to renew their commitment to a diverse and egalitarian society.

ID attention Kansas election officials should give special attention to helping voters obtain the identification they will need at the polls this year.

W

hile many Kansans believe it is reasonable to require voters to show photo identification at the polls, special circumstances may make it difficult for some Kansans to obtain the necessary IDs. At least for the first elections that require photo ID, state and county election officials should make an extra effort to inform voters and make the process easier. Nursing homes, for instance, have expressed concern that many of their residents may not have appropriate IDs even though they are registered to vote. Some no longer drive, so they don’t have a driver’s license, and they may not have taken the trouble to obtain a nondriver’s identification card. It may require a little extra effort, but obtaining an ID won’t be that difficult for most voters. However, for some, the process may pose obstacles that are hard to clear. Registered Kansas voters can request a free photo ID, but they still must go to a driver’s license station to obtain the ID. If they don’t drive, getting to the station and enduring the long waits currently being reported at many Kansas Division of Motor Vehicle offices might be a problem. To obtain an ID, people must present other forms of identification. That may be fairly easy for someone born in Kansas, but it gets more complicated if you were born in another state. Kansans can obtain a free copy of their birth certificates to facilitate the ID process, but people born elsewhere would need to contact their native state and probably pay a fee to obtain a birth certificate. If women have changed their names as a result of marriage or divorce, they also would have to document that change with a marriage certificate or divorce decree. None of these obstacles is insurmountable, but it takes time and effort. The Kansas Secretary of State’s office and county election officials are trying to deal with various voter concerns, including those expressed by nursing home officials. Hopefully, their efforts will be successful. The Aug. 7 primary will be the first statewide election at which photo IDs will be required. Although participation in primary elections usually is low, this primary involves more than the usual number of contested races, and it should offer at least some indication of how big an issue or problem the new voter ID law will pose for voters and election officials.

Fed, ECB are pursuing risky strategy WASHINGTON — Because of the breakdown of political decision-making in the United States and Europe during the Great Recession, the burden of response has fallen largely on two big central banks: the Federal Reserve and the European Central Bank. And down the road, they are going to pay for it. The balance sheets of these institutions have ballooned as they’ve pumped out cash — adding so many new obligations that some economists worry the central banks may be sowing the seeds of the next financial crisis. And there’s a policy mismatch: Using the finely tuned monetary system in a blunt-force effort to bolster the global economy has been a bit like using a gold watch to pound a nail. The ECB in particular has added assets over the past year, expanding its portfolio by more than 1.1 trillion euros since July 2011. This explosion of assets makes the ECB’s balance sheet (totaling about 3.1 trillion euros, or $3.8 trillion) considerably larger than the Fed’s (about $2.8 trillion). Alan Greenspan, the former Fed chairman, finds the eurozone’s problems deeply worrying. “The trend is unrelenting,” says Greenspan, noting that the ECB has been adding more than $100 billion a month to its ledger over the past year after a prolonged period of stability. Greenspan likens the eurozone financial system to a rowboat that’s leaking water through big holes in its bot-

The global system needs growth, but through reforms that open markets and encourage new investment and jobs, rather than from a monetary system on steroids.” tom (representing the combined budget deficits of the eurozone). European leaders keep bailing the dingy out — but the problem keeps getting worse because they don’t fill the holes. Greenspan argues that the task is not funding the budget deficits but eliminating them — a politically daunting task. What the ECB is essentially doing is lending to eurozone banks (to fund sovereign bondholdings) and paying with checks written on the ECB. That puts euros into the system and eases the shortterm crisis. But at some point, when the economy begins to pick up, the ECB (and the Fed, too) will have to tighten monetary policy quickly, which could mean a very sharp rise in interest rates and/or inflation. Compared to the feck-

less politicians in Europe and America, the central bankers have been heroes during the financial crisis: Ben Bernanke at the Fed and Mario Draghi at the ECB have found creative ways to prop up sagging commercial banks, provide liquidity for markets and keep interest rates low through their very large purchases of debt, a process known as “quantitative easing.” But skeptics argue that central bankers can’t be “lone rangers” riding to the rescue of nations held hostage by the economic downturn. Their policy instruments are limited, and can’t mandate the kind of investment that’s needed to bring recovery. Here’s how the Bank for International Settlements, the normally cautious clearinghouse for central banks, stated it in an unusually frank annual report issued last month: “Simply put, central banks are being cornered into prolonging monetary stimulus as governments drag their feet and adjustment is delayed.” The report warned of “wasteful support of effectively insolvent borrowers and banks.” The BIS admonished: “Central banks face the risk that, once the time comes to tighten monetary policy, the sheer size and scale of their unconventional measures will prevent a timely exit from monetary stimulus, thereby jeopardizing price stability. The result would be a decisive loss of central bank credibility and possibly even independence.”

The credibility issue is important because the Fed and ECB have been the most reliable policy anchors since the global financial crisis began in October 2008. Because of political paralysis in both the U.S. Congress and the leading European governments, the burden of adjustment has fallen largely to the central banks, whose leaders are professional economists and, hopefully, outside politics. But even Bernanke, in congressional testimony last week, appeared wary of adding to the Fed’s portfolio with another round of quantitative easing. And House Republicans cautioned that, as Rep. Jeb Hensarling of Texas put it, “there are limits to what monetary policy can achieve.” The global system needs growth, but through reforms that open markets and encourage new investment and jobs, rather than from a monetary system on steroids. And enough talk about “austerity,” with its implicit moral tone of repentance. What’s needed is solvency. Financial traders sometimes caution each other that during a downturn in the market, “don’t try to be a hero.” Central bankers have waived that rule over the past four years in trying to rescue the system when other policymakers failed to act. But heroism can become a liability, as the ballooning balance sheets show. — David Ignatius is a columnist for Washington Post Writers Group.

PUBLIC FORUM

Earth still evolving Offensive effect To the editor: I enjoyed Carl Burkhead’s letter in your July 12 edition in which he quoted scripture regarding the origin of life, but I am writing to express a different point of view. Most humans have never heard of the Bible or Jesus Christ. They feel secure in their beliefs in other creation stories that their cultures provide. In the United States today many, if not most, practicing Christians understand that the universe was created about 13.4 billion years ago and that our Earth came along about 4.5 billion years ago. BUT, these Christians believe that God was still the creator. This understanding of the physical world in no way diminishes their faith. And, some surveys show that those Christians have a greater reverence for and desire to protect, reclaim and restore the earth, God’s gift to all living creatures. Most of these Christians understand and believe in evolution. As the anti-evolution minority may again attempt to make it an issue in the coming election, it is important to realize that any God with enough magic to create the world in seven days, could just as easily have done it in six hours. Besides, the earth isn’t finished being made yet. Volcanoes, earthquakes and floods are constantly remaking the face of the globe, as geology proves. The story of evolution is a beautiful, awe-inspiring story of creation that is appreciated by Christians everywhere. It’s wrong to discredit their beliefs and claim they have no faith. Graham Kreicker, Lawrence

To the editor: What a joy, earlier this summer, for my lady love and me to take our baby for his first concert, to hear the City Band at South Park. That night, during the band’s grand finale rendition of “Stars and Stripes,” that joy was juxtaposed to seething anger at the sonic battery by a National Guard-fired Howitzer. Fireworks go great with music. The Howitzer has a low, concussive blast that can damage even covered young ears. In the grand scheme of things, I should expect this irresponsible stance towards the safety of children. Our so-called wars feature the “collateral” destruction of young lives in many ways. From Pakistani wedding parties transformed by remote hellfire into terrorism for the lucky children to remember, to Howitzer-fired, depleted uranium munitions toxifying the genetic environment for Iraqi generations and the future offspring of exposed U.S. soldiers, our “foreign policy” has a habit of mass child abuse. Maybe next year the children of Lawrence will be treated, like the children of Gaza, to a Howitzer-fired white phosphorous show to go along with a non-emphasis on universal, inherent rights. If, by the subsequent year, we still haven’t figured out our patriotic moral duties, we should display some honest self-consciousness by taking the Stars and Stripes themselves, waved by local children, and fire live Howitzers at them. Then we could put on display habitual domains in which we seem to casually dwell — holier and holier symbols we use to justify blowing things and people up in the presence of children.

the ball from the hole after one last birdie and heaved it into the grandstand. At the time, it looked like nothing more than a classy gesture by a former British Open champion — not the next one. The name on the claret jug was supposed to be Adam Scott, who had a four-shot lead with four holes to play. But in a shocking turnaround Sunday, Els returned to the 18th green less than an hour later to claim the oldest trophy in golf. Scott joined a list of players who threw away a major. That was not lost on Els, whose heart sank when he looked over at the 32-yearold Australian. “Sorry,” Els told him.

Scott had one last chance when he stood over a 7-foot par putt to force a playoff. It stayed left of the cup, and Scott dropped Woodland partially offset into a crouch. Standing off to two bogeys on the front nine the side, his chin quivered as with a birdie on No. 5 and the magnitude of the meltmade the turn at 1 over. He down hit him.

LYTHAM ST. ANNES, ENGLAND — Former Kansas University golfer Gary Woodland moved up nine more spots during the final round Sunday to tie for 34th place at the British Open. Woodland shot a 1-over 71 on Sunday, running his fourround total to 284 (4 over) to tie him with John Senden, Jim Furyk, Paul Lawrie and Keegan Bradley. Each earned $40,615. “You’re a great player, a great friend of mine. I feel very fortunate. You’re going to win many of these.”

Gators win out over KU, others By Gary Bedore gbedore@ljworld.com

Chris Walker, the No. 6-rated player in the recruiting Class of 2013 according to Rivals.com, on Sunday orally committed to the University of Florida. He chose Billy Donovan’s Gators over Kansas University, Louisville, Kentucky, Ohio State, Syracuse and Baylor. Walker, a 6-foot-9, 220-pounder from Holmes County High in Bonifay, Fla., made his announcement Sunday morning via a prefilmed mixtape at hthoops. com. “I will be playing college basketball for the University of Florida,” Walker said on the tape. “I will be teaming with (Florida Elite teammate) Kasey Hill, and together we will be the best duo in college, and we will win a national championship.” Hill, who is rated No. 7 nationally, committed to Florida last New Year’s Eve. He is a 6-1 point guard from Montverde Academy in Clermont, Fla. “Given his size, athleticism and skill set, Walker has tremendous potential. He can run the floor extremely well, and loves to finish in transition,” writes Jeff Borzello of CBSsports.com. “In a halfcourt set, Walker can faceup and knock down jumpers or post up down low. Defensively, he is one of the better shot blockers in the class and he can rebound as well.

Vaughn to Magic?: Former KU guard Jacque Vaughn remains frontrunner to be named head coach of the NBA’s Orlando Magic, the Orlando Sentinel reported Sunday. The Sentinel says San Antonio assistant Vaughn met with Magic CEO Alex Martins on Friday in Las Vegas for a second-round interview. Magic general manager Rob Hennigan interviewed six candidates and cut the field to three: Vaughn, Philadelphia 76ers associate head coach Michael Curry and Phoenix Suns playerdevelopment coach Lindsey Hunter. Vaughn, 37, played for the Spurs when GM Hennigan worked in that team’s front office. TNT analyst Shaquille O’Neal apparently does not approve of the possible Vaughn hire.

Staff picks for most overlooked Jayhawks J-W Staff Reports

The question regarding what makes an athlete underrated brings different answers from different people. For some, it can refer to a player who contributed a lot but was lost in the shadows

of bigger names. For others, it can refer to a player who achieved a certain degree of notoriety but never got the full credit he or she deserved. And for others, it can refer to players whom people rarely talk about, athletes who achieve great-

ness behind the veil of near anonymity. Many of the names on the lists below won championships, went pro or remain talked about to this day. But, at least for our staff, all of the following athletes were underrated in one way or another.

He also helped Sky teammate Mark Cavendish earn his fourth straight sprint victory on the Champs-Elysees. Wiggins secured his win with a dominating performance in

Saturdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s final time trial to extend his already commanding lead. Fellow Briton and Sky teammate Christopher Froome finished second, 3 minutes, 21 seconds behind overall. Vincenzo Nibali of Italy finished third, 6:19 off the pace. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been a magical couple of weeks for the team and for British cycling,â&#x20AC;?

Larkin, Santo enter hall of fame COOPERSTOWN, N.Y. (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Barry Larkin lost it before he even started. Vicki Santo never wavered as she honored her late husband, Ron. Baseballâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s highest honor always seems to leave a special impression on those directly involved. Larkin, the former star shortstop for the Cincinnati Reds, and Ron Santo, a standout third baseman for the Chicago Cubs and later a beloved broadcaster for the team, were inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum. After wiping away tears as his teenage daughter sang the national anthem, Larkin began a litany of thank-yous to the important people who helped him along his journey, none more important than his mom, Shirley, and father, Robert, who were seated in the first row. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If we were going to do something, we were going to do it right,â&#x20AC;? Larkin said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Growing up, you challenged me. That was so instrumental.â&#x20AC;? Drafted fourth by the Reds in 1985, despite playing just 41 games his first year Larkin finished seventh in the National League Rookie of the Year voting in 1986. Two years later, Larkin was an All-Star with a .296 average, 91 runs scored, 32 doubles and 40 stolen bases. And with a host of older players to guide him â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Eric Davis, Ron Oester, Buddy Bell, player-manager Pete Rose, a Cincinnati native, slugger Tony Perez, and even star shortstop Dave Concepcion, the man he would replace â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Larkinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s major league career quickly took off. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I played with some monumental figures in the game,â&#x20AC;? said Larkin, who was introduced to baseball by his dad at the age of 5. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They helped me through some very rough times as a player.â&#x20AC;? Larkin, who played his entire 19-year career with the Reds, retired after the 2004 season with a .295 career average, 2,340 hits, 1,329 runs scored and 379 stolen bases. Ron Santo didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t live to experience the day he always dreamed of. Plagued by health problems, he died Dec. 3, 2010, at the age of 70. His long battle with diabetes cost him both legs below the knees, but he ultimately died of complications from bladder cancer. A member of the Chicago Cubs organization for the better part of five decades as a player (1960-74) and then beloved broadcaster (1990-2010), Santo was selected by the Veterans Committee in December, exactly one year after his death. Vicki Santo said she cried a lot while practicing her speech. Her poise was remarkable when it counted most. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It just feels right, a perfect ending to a remarkable journey,â&#x20AC;? Vicki Santo said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ron left an awful hole for many of us today. This is not a sad day. This is a great day. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m certain that Ronnie is celebrating right now.â&#x20AC;? So, too, were his beloved Cubs. They paid a tribute of their own to Santo, clicking their heels as they jumped over the third-base line to start the bottom of the first inning at St. Louis. In 15 major league seasons, all but one with the Cubs, Santo was one of the top third basemen in major league history. He compiled a .277 batting average, had 2,254 hits, 1,331 RBIs and 365 doubles in 2,243 games.

ELLIOTT SADLER (2) DRIVES PAST COLE WHITT during the NASCAR Nationwide Series auto race Sunday at Chicagoland Speedway in Joliet, Ill.

Sadler victorious at Chicagoland Nationwide race JOLIET, ILL. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Elliott Sadler held off a charge by Ricky Stenhouse Jr. on a green-white-checker finish to win the NASCAR Nationwide Series race at Chicagoland Speedway on Sunday. Stenhouse appeared to have the stronger car and was chasing down Sadler in the closing laps of the race. But a late caution bunched up the field for NASCARâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s version of overtime, Sadler got a push from Justin Allgaier on the restart and pulled away. Stenhouse finished second, followed by Allgaier, Kenny Wallace and Michael Annett. Sadlerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s win came after he spent most of the week battling a stomach virus. Danica Patrick finished 14th. Track officials held a moment of silence before the race and the No. 24 car driven by Benny Gordon carried the message â&#x20AC;&#x153;Remember Aurora Coloradoâ&#x20AC;? on its rear fender. It was the third win of the season for Sadler, who has eight Nationwide victories in his career. Sadler won at Phoenix and Bristol earlier this season. He leads the series standings by 11 points over Austin Dillon, who finished sixth. Sundayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s race drew a sparse crowd, although no official attendance figure was immediately released. The Sprint Cup Series was off this weekend and will resume racing at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway next week.

GOLF

Stallings wins in Mississippi MADISON, MISS. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Scott Stallings strolled down the fairway on the 18th hole of the True South Classic, smiling and waving to a few fans like he didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have a care in the world. There would be no final-hole drama at Annandale Golf Club. He had this one all wrapped up. Stallings shot a 4-under 68 in the final round on Sunday to beat Jason Bohn by two strokes. It was his first Tour victory of the year and the second of his career. He finished with a 24-under 264, which is a tournament record at Annandale. With a few holes remaining, it looked as if the True South Classic would host a tight finish. But Stallings made back-to-back birdies on 16 and 17 to suck all the suspense right out of the final hole. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It made that tee shot on 18 a lot easier,â&#x20AC;? Stallings said with a grin. Bohn shot a 5-under 67 on Sunday. Billy Horschel was alone in third, four strokes back. The 27-year-old Stallings raced up the leaderboard after shooting back-to-back 64s in the second and third rounds. That gave him a one-stroke lead over Horschel heading into the final day. Stallings wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t quite as spectacular on Sunday, but didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need to be. Instead, he was steady, methodically working his way around the course, avoiding major trouble and picking up occasional birdies.

BASEBALL

Quentin re-ups with Padres SAN DIEGO â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Carlos Quentin has agreed to a $27 million, three-year contract with the San Diego Padres that includes a no-trade clause. The outfielder, making $7,025,000 this year under his current deal, gets $9.5 million in each of the next two seasons and $8 million in 2015. The contract includes a $10 million mutual option for 2016 which would have a $3 million buyout if he has 320 starts or more from 2013-15.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is an amazing opportunity for me to stay and play in the city I grew up in,â&#x20AC;? Quentin said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I believe in this organization and what theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re doing and I think they believe in me and I wanted to be a part of it.â&#x20AC;? The 29-year-old Quentin had arthroscopic right knee surgery during spring training and missed the first 49 games of the season. But he homered five times in his first six games for the Padres after being activated from the disabled list on May 28. He began the day with a .273 batting average, nine homers and 22 RBIs in 40 games.

PRO FOOTBALL

Lionsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Berry arrested (again) DETROIT â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Detroit Lions cornerback Aaron Berry has been arrested in Pennsylvania for the second time this offseason. Cpl. Kyle Gautsch of the Harrisburg Police Department says Berry was taken into custody early Saturday morning on three charges of simple assault. Gautsch said there â&#x20AC;&#x153;was a weapon allegedly brandished during the incident.â&#x20AC;? Berry, who is from Harrisburg, was also arrested in that area June 23 on suspicion of DUI, failure to stop and render aid from an accident and other counts. He was set to enter a diversionary program in that case. His second arrest was the latest bit of bad publicity during a troubled offseason for the Lions. Running back Mikel Leshoure will miss the first two games this season without pay and will have to give up two more game checks for violating the NFLâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s substance-abuse policy. Defensive tackle Nick Fairley was arrested twice in two months.

Eaglesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Patterson out for camp BETHLEHEM, PA. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The Philadelphia Eagles have ruled out defensive tackle Mike Patterson for their entire training camp and possibly more because the incision where he had brain surgery in January hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t fully healed. Patterson was diagnosed with a brain malformation last August after suffering a seizure during a training camp practice at Lehigh University. Eagles head trainer Rick Burkholder said Sunday that a piece of Pattersonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cranium was taken off in January so neurosurgeon Dr. Robert Spetzler could remove the arteriovenous malformation (AVM), a tangle of veins and arteries that doctors determined caused the seizure.

COLLEGE FOOTBALL

Former coach Carlen dies COLUMBIA, S.C. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Jim Carlen, who coached South Carolinaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s only Heisman Trophy winner and also led West Virginia and Texas Tech to success, died Sunday. He was 79. Carlen died in Columbia, according to Dale Morton at Dunbar Funeral Home. He did not know the cause of death. Carlen was 107-69-6 in his 16-year coaching career and had just three losing seasons. He led his teams to eight bowl games. Carlen was a punter and linebacker for Georgia Tech and was an assistant for the Yellow Jackets before he got his first head coaching job in West Virginia in 1966. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s credited with bringing West Virginia football to the big stage, convincing the schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s leaders to leave the Southern Conference and become an independent.

to recruit Todd Reesing. Beyond that, Whittemore often is credited for kickstarting KU’s resurgence under Mangino and is one of the most down-to-earth dudes you’ll ever meet. Kevin Pritchard — The former KU point guard never really received much fanfare, but he played a huge role on KU’s 1988 national championship team and provided stability, scoring and leadership on Roy Williams’ first couple of KU teams. Isaac Byrd — An incredible athlete with blazing speed and great natural instincts. Those traits not only helped make Byrd a threat on the gridiron, but also from his spot in center field with the KU baseball team. Drafted out of high school by the San Diego Padres (and again after his junior year of college by the St. Louis Cardinals), Byrd turned down the offer to play pro baseball and, four years later, was drafted in the sixth round of the NFL Draft by the Tennessee Titans. He played six seasons in the NFL and was in the starting lineup for Super Bowl XXXIV. At KU, he earned MVP honors on both squads and was a first-team All-Big 8 pick in baseball and a secondteam All-Big 8 selection in football. Chris Harris — Let’s see, as a true freshman, Harris started on an Orange Bowl championship team and, after his college career ended, he became a starter in the Denver Broncos’ secondary as a rookie. During each of the seasons in between, many people thought Harris was nothing more than a decent player. Turns out Harris’ freshman year was more indicative of the likable defensive back’s true talent.

Andrew Hartsock Mark Williams — Quick history lesson: Back in 1994, Asheiki Preston was KU’s staring QB. He was hurt, and, after being told Preston was out for the season, coach Glen Mason yanked Williams’ red shirt. Preston quickly returned, and Williams hardly played the rest of the year. Then in 1995,

Williams completed 61.7 percent of his passes for 1,957 yards — in a running offense — and led KU to a 10-2 year. There’s no telling what this guy would have done in two full seasons. June Henley — He wasn’t KU’s best running back, but he still holds the school records for career (823) and season (302) rushing attempts, season (17) and career (41) rushing TDs and, oh yeah, career rushing yards (3,841). Ron Warner — I remember the knocks on Warner, primarily that he wasn’t great against the run, but off the corner he was a beast. He might have been a one-trick pony, but at that one trick — making life difficult for opposing quarterbacks — he was one of the best. His 14.5 sacks in 1997 are still the school record. Mario Kinsey — OK, I know the critics might accuse me of smoking some of the substance Kinsey was busted for possession of in the offseason, but Kinsey was talented enough to earn the starting quarterback job as a freshman and land a walk-on invitation from then-coach Roy Williams to the men’s basketball team. He never did much in either sport (though his 1,215 passing yards as a red-shirt freshman in 2001 wasn’t too shabby), but he obviously was a wicked athlete. After departing KU, Kinsey went on to play hoops at two other colleges and had a short career in the American Basketball Association.

Tom Keegan Jim Bausch — A relative novice to the decathlon, he won the Olympic gold medal in the event in 1932, was a two-time All-American in football and also lettered in basketball. Bob Allison — If you’re scratching your head saying, “The NASCAR legend went to Kansas, and isn’t he known as Bobby, not Bob?” you’re proof of the extent of just how underrated the former Jayhawks slugger remains. Allison, who died in 1995 at the age of 60, was American League Rookie of the Year in 1959 and was an All-Star that year and in 1963 and 1964. OPS (on-base plus slugging) rates as the single most revealing statistic for a hitter, and Allison led the American League in it in ’63 and ranked in

playoffs. In 2006, O’Neal’s Miami Heat beat Vaughn’s New Jersey Nets in the playoffs. !

the top 10 five times. He ranked in the top 10 in home runs in eight of his 13 seasons. At Kansas, Allison also played fullback for the football team. Angel Goodrich — Anyone who hasn’t seen this basketball magician play needs to do so during her senior year or live to regret it forever. She deserves to play in front of huge crowds every night. Marilynn Smith — One of the original 13 LPGA tour players in 1950, Smith won 21 LPGA tournaments, including two majors, and finished in the top 10 on the money list nine times. As a teenager, she won three consecutive state amateur championships.

Jesse Newell Xavier Henry — He is often lumped with Josh Selby as a one-and-done disappointment, but the truth is, Henry was spectacular offensively in his one year and gets overlooked because of the Northern Iowa loss. Eric Chenowith — Most KU fans were so focused on what Chenowith wasn’t that they didn’t appreciate what he was: a top-five rebounder and a top-three shot-blocker in KU history. Wayne Simien — Simien’s senior season in 2005 was one the best offensive seasons for a KU player in the last decade, but he’s not often mentioned with the greats because of a short NBA career and missed final shot against Bucknell. Gabe Toomey — I loved watching Gabe Toomey’s aggressiveness on the KU football team, but injuries and perhaps some misuse of him by the KU football coaching staff shut down his KU career too soon. Gary Bedore Scott Huffman — Olympic track pole vaulter whose Huffman Roll revolutionized the sport. An outgoing guy, Huffman should have received even more publicity than he did during his KU days. Milt Newton — Was very important piece of the 1988 national title team. Michael Center — Great tennis player and coach. Willie Pless — Linebacker got some attention, but was lost in the shuffle a bit in the CFL, where he was one of the league’s alltime greats.

MINNESOTA CATCHER DREW BUTERA WAITS FOR A THROW while Kansas City’s Mike Moustakas (8) slides home during the fourth inning. Moustakas was safe, but the Royals fell, 7-5, on Sunday in Kansas City, Mo.

Doumit’s homers lift Twins past K.C. KANSAS CITY, MO. (AP) — Ryan Doumit put his name in the Twins’ record book Sunday, accomplishing something no Minnesota player had done in 20 years. Doumit homered from both sides of the plate and drove in four runs to lead the Twins to a 7-5 victory over the Kansas City Royals on Sunday. Doumit became the third Twins player to go deep from both sides in a game. The others were Chili Davis (1992) and Roy Smalley (1986). “That’s great company,” Doumit said. And the home runs were no-doubters. “I had a pretty good idea” that both were out, Doumit said. Doumit homered to lead off the second inning swinging left-handed. He opened the sixth with his ninth home run, batting right-handed against reliever Tim Collins. It was Doumit’s sixth career multihomer game, the second this season. Hitting .354 in his past 26 games, Doumit also had a two-run single with two outs in a four-run third to match his career high for RBIs. “Home runs are always great, but with the bases loaded, him driving it the other way was huge,” Twins manager Ron Gardenhire said. “I thought that was an impressive atbat. It was a fastball away and he stayed on it and didn’t try to do too much with it and shot it the other way. That was a big hit for us. It was a big day for him and for us.” The Twins signed Doumit to a $3 million, oneyear contract as a free agent in the offseason. “We’re really happy we

“I know I let a really great chance slip through my fingers today,” Scott said. On a wind-swept afternoon at Royal Lytham & St. Annes that blew away the hopes of Tiger Woods and a handful of others, Scott looked steady as ever by going eight straight holes without making bogey. And that’s when it came undone. “I had it in my hands with four to go,” Scott said. A bogey from the bunker on the 15th cut the lead to three. That was followed by a three-putt bogey on the 16th, where his 3-foot par putt spun in and out of the cup and made the gallery gasp. From the middle of the 17th fairway, he hit a 6-iron that turned left, ran down the slope and took one last bounce in shin-high grass. “I thought, ‘Hold on. We’ve got a problem here,’” said Graeme Mc-

ERNIE ELS CELEBRATES AFTER PUTTING ON THE 18TH GREEN with his caddie Ricky Roberts on Sunday at the British Open at Royal Lytham & St Annes. Dowell, playing with Scott in the final group. By then, Els had posted a 2-under 68 with a 15-foot birdie putt on the final hole, a cheer that Scott recognized while playing the 17th. Scott failed to get up-anddown for par from the rough and suddenly was tied.

Els headed to the practice green, where it rarely works out for him. In perhaps the most crushing defeat in a career filled with them, Els was on the putting green at Augusta National in 2004 when Phil Mickelson made an 18-foot birdie putt to win the Masters.

“I just thought, ‘I’ll probably be disappointed again,’ “ Els said. “You’re not really hoping the guy is going to make a mistake, but you’re hoping you don’t have to go a playoff, you can win outright. This one was different, because I feel for Adam.”

got a chance to get this guy,” Gardenhire said. “It’s paying dividends for us. He’s a force in the middle of our lineup. He can do a lot of things — outfield, catch, DH, first base a little. And he can swing the bat. “I knew we had to get him in there today some way or another. We were looking at lot of different routes. I wanted to keep Doumit’s bat in there and it worked out pretty good.” Samuel Deduno (1-0), who made six relief appearances the past two years with San Diego and Colorado, picked up his first big league victory. He limited the Royals to one run and six singles over 61⁄3 innings. Lorenzo Cain’s sacrifice fly in the fourth scored Mike Moustakas with the only run off Deduno, who was making his third major league start. “His ball-to-strike ratio was a lot better,” Gardenhire said. “He threw the ball over a lot more. He

was very effective and got us deep into the game.” Doumit’s big day spoiled the Royals debut of right-hander Jeremy Guthrie, acquired Friday in a trade with the Rockies for Jonathan Sanchez. Guthrie (3-10) yielded four runs on five hits and three walks in five innings. “I thought he threw the ball OK,” Royals manager Ned Yost said. “He had a rough third inning, but I didn’t think he made a horrible pitch. He kept the ball down in the zone and I don’t think he elevated all day. He made good pitches and I thought they hit good pitches. I was impressed.” Guthrie, who led the National League in home runs allowed with 21, hung a breaking ball on a 1-1 count to Doumit, who hit it out to right. The Twins bunched three hits and two walks off Guthrie in a four-run third. Jamey Carroll led off the inning with a single and, with one out, Ben Revere and Joe Mauer walked. It appeared Guthrie might escape unscathed after Josh Willingham’s infield popup for the second out, but Doumit delivered a two-run single. Brian Dozier doubled off the left-field wall to drive in two more runs. Kansas City’s rotation had a 7.38 ERA during a 3-7 homestand. The Royals have lost 15 of 20 and are only a half-game in front of the Twins for last place in the AL Central. Billy Butler homered, his 19th, with Moustakas aboard in the eighth against Twins reliever Anthony Swarzak. Pinchhitter Yuniesky Betancourt also connected in the Royals’ two-run ninth.

Els, who started the final round six shots behind, wound up with his second British Open — the other one was 10 years ago at Muirfield — and fourth major championship at a stage in his career when it looked as if his best golf was behind him. “Amazing,” Els said. “I’m still numb. It still hasn’t set in. It will probably take quite a few days because I haven’t been in this position for 10 years, obviously. So it’s just crazy, crazy, crazy getting here.” The celebration was muted, unlike his other three majors. “First of all, I feel for Adam Scott. He’s a great friend of mine,” Els said. “Obviously, we both wanted to win very badly. But you know, that’s the nature of the beast. That’s why we’re out here. You win. You lose. It was my time for some reason.” The wind finally arrived off the Irish Sea and ushered in pure chaos — a mental blunder by Woods that led to triple bogey on the sixth hole, a lost ball by Brandt Snedeker that took him out

of contention and a topped shot that made McDowell, a former U.S. Open champion, look like an amateur. “I guess my disappointment kind of seems relatively stupid in relation to the guy ... I’ve just seen a guy lose The Open Championship,” said McDowell, who played in the final group of a major for the second straight time. Nothing was more stunning than what happened to Scott, who closed with a 75. “I managed to hit a poor shot on each of the closing four holes,” Scott said. “Look, I played so beautifully for most of the week. I shouldn’t let this bring me down.” Even so, it added another chapter to Australian heartbreak, most of that belonging to his idol, Greg Norman. Scott was the fourth Australian since the 2007 Masters to lead going into the final round of a major, yet the proud land Down Under remains without a major since Geoff Ogilvy won the U.S. Open at Winged Foot in 2006.

A’s walk off with sweep The Associated Press

Athletics 5, Yankees 4, 12 innings OAKLAND, CALIF. — Seth Smith hit a tying homer in the ninth inning, Coco Crisp singled home the winning run in the 12th, and surging Oakland rallied from four runs down to stun New York on Sunday and complete a fourgame sweep. Smith homered to center with one out in the ninth off closer Rafael Soriano to help the A’s sweep the Yankees in a fourgame series at the Oakland Coliseum for the first time. The Athletics improved to 14-2 in July, the best record in the majors. The AL East-leading Yankees had not been swept in a four-game series since May 2003 against Toronto. New York

KOBE BRYANT OF THE U.S. MEN’S SENIOR NATIONAL TEAM sports the team’s retro uniforms on Sunday against Argentina at the Palau Sant Jordi in Barcelona, Spain.

U.S. men go retro, slip past Argentina BARCELONA, SPAIN (AP) — Dressed like the Dream Team, tested like its predecessor never was. The U.S. Olympic men’s basketball team held on for an 86-80 exhibition victory over Argentina on Sunday, insisting it didn’t expect an easy game and not believing there’s benefit to one, anyway. “I love it. You hate to breeze through exhibition games and then you get into London, and then you start getting competitive,” U.S. forward LeBron James said. “So we have a very good team. It doesn’t matter about how many points you win by, you just want to play well and get better that night, and I feel like we got better tonight.” Kevin Durant scored 27 points for the Americans, who wore the throwback uniforms of the 1992 Dream Team for their return to Barcelona. They looked like the Hall of Fame squad during a superb opening 10 minutes, but their lead was down to four with 2:50 left after Manu Ginobili’s threepoint play. Durant and Chris Paul then hit big 3-pointers as the Americans won after being pushed for the second time in their four exhibition games. Kobe Bryant added 18 points and James had 15 for the U.S., which beat Brazil 80-69 in a similarly rugged game last week in Washington. “It’s tough. Argentina’s a very good team, very tough-minded,” Bryant said. “They continue to play hard and for us it was a big challenge to try to put the game away, we could just never do it.” Ginobili scored 23 points, Carlos Delfino had

15 and Luis Scola 14 for Argentina. Back in Barcelona, where the Dream Team won gold 20 years earlier in historic and overwhelmingly easy fashion, the U.S. players wore that team’s throwback uniforms. The white uniforms with red and blue along the side and USA in the middle also had the letters “CD” in gold on the left shoulder in honor of Chuck Daly, the Dream Team coach who died in 2009. “Those uniforms was nice,” said Carmelo Anthony, wearing the No. 15 of Magic Johnson. “In the locker room, everybody was taking pictures with the uniforms. It just brings back so many memories from back then in ’92.” Otherwise, the Americans are more interested in building for London than reflecting too much on the past. Coach Mike Krzyzewski, a Dream Team assistant, made that clear Saturday at practice when he was asked about the old days. “I’m not here to sight see ... this isn’t me doing a reminisce tour in my retirement,” he said. The two games here should certainly help them get ready. The Americans play Spain on Tuesday, a rematch of their 118-107 win in the gold-medal game four years ago. First was Argentina, which won the 2004 Olympic gold medal, beating the U.S. in the semifinals. The Americans returned the favor four years later in the same round before recapturing the gold. Krzyzewski unveiled another starting lineup, with James, Durant, Bryant, Paul and Tyson Chandler. He has alternated

the Durant- Anthony and Paul-Deron Williams combination, with the other three spots set. The first group got off to a sensational start, Durant opening with two 3-pointers before Bryant’s basket made it 8-0. Scola made a free throw before Bryant and Durant nailed 3s and Bryant dunked to make it 16-1 not even three minutes into the game. The lead grew to 19-3 on Bryant’s 3-pointer, and Durant and Williams each hit one in the final minute as the Americans led 31-16 on the strength of seven 3-pointers. “They’re immensely talented,” Scola said. “They’ve got a lot of players in every position. They’re too athletic, they’re too talented. I think they’re going to be OK.” The Americans led by 20 early in the second, but like in their 101-81 victory in the Beijing semifinals, they began fouling too much and let Argentina get back into it with its feisty, physical play. This “friendly” — Scola and Kevin Love even appeared together at midcourt before the game to address the crowd, after Love was suspended two games during the NBA season for stepping on him — didn’t stay that way. Paul fouled guard Facundo Campazzo, who fell to the court after Paul appeared to hold onto him too long, with 5:33 left in the half and the U.S. up 14. Some words and light pushes were exchanged, Scola and Andres Nocioni involved along with Anthony and Durant. Argentina kept fighting, cutting it all the way to 4540 in the last minute of the half.

U.S. women rip Turkey ISTANBUL (AP) — After breezing through its first few exhibition games, Geno Auriemma was happy that his team was tested. Seimone Augustus and Diana Taurasi each scored 16 points to lead the U.S. women’s basketball team to an 80-61 victory over Turkey on Sunday. Where the first three exhibitions were pretty much over in the first quarter, Turkey hung tough for 30 minutes before the U.S. slowly started to pull away. “I think it’s better for us,” Auriemma said. “We had to make plays, we had to get stops and they are a really, really good team. We gave them a lot of life. We missed a lot of opportunities that would have made it much easier for us. Maybe in the long run that’s better, too. “It’s easy to win when you shoot 70 percent, another thing when you shoot 35 percent in the first half and are able to beat a really good team by 19.” It was the final tuneup

for the Americans before the Olympics start next weekend. The U.S. will train for two more days in Istanbul before heading to London on Wednesday. “They exposed some of our flaws and weaknesses and we have four more practices to fix them and then we’re on the big stage,” Auriemma said. The U.S. struggled against its hosts, who were buoyed by a spirited crowd which booed and whistled every time the Americans touched the ball. Turkey hung tough with the top-ranked team in the world in the first meeting between the countries. “Turkey’s a really good team. A lot of us have played here, played against them,” Taurasi said. “They don’t fear anyone. They went into the game with a really good game plan. They’ll be a tough team in London. For us it was good to be tested like that and see some of the resolve we have.” Taurasi was one of six American players who have played in Turkey

and she knows all about the fierce rivalry between teams Fenerbahce and Galatasaray. She started with Fenerbahce before switching over to Galatasaray. Taurasi was playing for Fenerbahce in 2010 when she was provisional suspended for using a banned substance. The suspension was lifted nearly two months later when the lab that returned the positive test retracted its report. When she returned to Turkey last season, she changed to rival Galatasaray. Augustus, Tina Charles, Sylvia Fowles and Tamika Catchings have played for Galatasaray, while Angel McCoughtry suited up for rival Fenerbahce. Think ConnecticutTennessee and magnify that by 100, according to Tamika Catchings, who received a stuffed bear from one of the Gala fans Saturday night before the Americans’ rout of Croatia. “It’s a different level,” said Catchings, who turned 33 on Saturday.

Steer clear of romantically inclined ‘friend’ Annie’s Mailbox

widowed. We get together once a month to dine out and catch up on news. We always looked forward to our girls’ night out. Last year, “Agnes” remarried, and she has been bringing the new husband along to our meetings. Everyone was patient at first because we didn’t think she would keep it up, but it’s been 10 months, and her husband has settled in as “one of the girls.” We have discussed the problem, and no one wants to address it because we are afraid Agnes will quit the group. But it is causing a strain and some resentment each time he shows up. We long for the way our group used to be. What do you suggest? — Disappointed in Ohio

Agnes should not have brought her husband to begin with, but now he believes you have accepted him and enjoy his company. Removing him will necessitate hurting his feelings and risking Agnes’ displeasure. A couple of you can talk to Agnes privately and explain that you think her husband is a great guy, but you miss the comfort and casual ease of a girls-only gathering. Ask her to please leave him at home next time.

Dear Annie: I’ve been Dear Disappointed: Dear Hurt: You can- friends for years with a This is one of those not control how Daniel lovely group of women, things that ought to have and Jordan act around divorced, married and been nipped in the bud.

— Send questions to anniesmailbox@comcast.net, or Annie’s Mailbox, P.O. Box 118190 Chicago, IL 60611.

Marcy Sugar and Kathy Mitchell anniesmailbox@comcast.net

each other, but you can help by making your feelings clear, especially to Jordan, that there is nothing romantic between you. Don’t play them against each other. You may need to back away from the friendship in order to allow Jordan time to get over you. However, if Daniel is so jealous that he doesn’t trust you, that is a different problem.

‘Bachelor Pad’ gets new guests It’s that time of the summer doldrums when “The Bachelorette” gives way to “Bachelor Pad” (7 p.m., ABC). And if you can explain or care to understand the differences, you’re a bigger fan of this genre than I am and in serious need of better things to do with your time. For the record, “Pad” reunites some of the most memorable and controversial veterans of “The Bachelor.” This offers proof of the enduring truth that once you appear on a reality show, you’re eminently qualified and all but destined to appear (or want to appear) on another. And speaking of wanting to appear on a reality show, “Pad” also features five “Super Fans” who were discovered through the miracle of an open casting call. If you weren’t chosen, take heart: You’re still a “Bachelor” fan; you’re just not “Super” enough. This group heads to the fake mansion to share space, hot tub time and connive to backstab each other in the quest for a $250,000 prize. As if chained to the mast of a shipwreck of tedium, Chris Harrison returns as your host.

“Alphas” (9 p.m., Syfy) returns for a second season, starring David Strathairn as the scientist den mother for a pack of seemingly ordinary folk with super-amazing powers. This season promises a raft of new guest stars. Look for Sean Astin (“The Lord of the Rings” series), C. Thomas Howell (“Southland”), Lauren Holly (“NCIS”), Steve Byers (“Total Recall”), Kandyse McClure (“Battlestar Galactica”) and Noah Reid (“Rookie Blue”). “Warehouse 13” (8 p.m., Syfy) also returns. Brent Spiner (“Star Trek: The Next Generation”) joins the fun as Brother Adrian, the leader of a furtive cult not unlike the Knights Templar. This is the fourth season of “13,” and it picks up from a season-three cliffhanger involving the destruction of the warehouse and the loss of several series favorites.

Tonight’s other highlights

The documentary “Vito” (8 p.m., HBO) profiles Vito Russo, a pioneering activist for gay rights.

“Unsung” (8 p.m., TV One) profiles the Motown group the Marvelettes, who never attained the fame of the Supremes or Martha and the Vandellas, in spite of hits like “Please Mr. Postman,” “Too Many Fish in the Sea” and “Don’t Mess With Bill.”

The oddly named “Market Warriors” (8 p.m., PBS, check local listings) goes in search of antiques in Philadelphia.

JACQUELINE BIGAR’S STARS

For Monday, July 23: Do not make your life any more complicated than it is. In fact, this year you have an opportunity to add clarity to your life and ideals. If you are single, you attract a host of people. If you are attached, the two of you need to go out more as a couple and enjoy each other’s company. The Stars Show the Kind of Day You’ll Have: 5-Dynamic; 4-Positive; 3-Average; 2-So-so; 1-Difficult Aries (March 21-April 19)  Others seem to fall in line and do what you want. You might not even need to say anything. Tonight: Sort through offers. Taurus (April 20-May 20)  Play it relaxed, and you’ll notice that others center themselves as well. You come up with some wild ideas in a discussion. Maintain a sense of humor. Tonight: Relax. Gemini (May 21-June 20)  You cannot help but express your feelings, especially about a child or potential loved one. You might be worried about being so vulnerable. Tonight: Act like it is Friday night. Cancer (June 21-July 22)  Many of you could choose to stay home and relax. You have pushed hard and now are experiencing more fatigue than usual. Tonight: Order in. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)  You do not have to push hard if you ask the right questions. Wherever you are, others seem to want to get feedback from you. Tonight: Meet a friend for munchies, and catch up on news. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)  Work on gaining a realistic

attitude about money in your life. Do not go to extremes, as that perspective could be your downfall when handling a touchy situation. Tonight: Treat yourself on the way home. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)  You beam and draw others in. If ever there was a time where your actions count, it is now. Tonight: Dream up what you want. Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)  Step back some from your life, and enjoy being an observer rather than a player. You might need some time to regroup, think over recent events and consider alternatives. Tonight: Make it a personal night. Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)  Zero in on what is important. Your ability to take in the whole picture without projecting too much ego marks your interactions. Tonight: Where the fun is. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)  You are an old hand at accepting responsibility and managing situations that many other people would flee from. Just because you have these skills does not mean you always need to step up to the plate and help. Tonight: In the limelight. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)  Your mind keeps drifting to distant lands and other people. You might not be able to center yourself with your mind wandering. Tonight: Put on a favorite music track. Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)  Relate on a one-on-one level, especially if you want to accomplish something. People are highly responsive to your attention and caring. Tonight: Dinner with a favorite person. — The astrological forecast should be read for entertainment only.

Dear Annie: “Daniel” and I have been going out for six months. We really connect and feel as if we are meant to be together. There is only one problem. One of our best friends, “Jordan,” has developed strong feelings for me. I found out he’s felt this way since before I began dating Daniel. When Daniel found out, he was outraged and felt betrayed by Jordan. Whenever I’m with Daniel, I can see that Jordan is jealous and angry. Now the two of them can’t even be in the same room without arguing. Daniel is fed up and doesn’t want me near Jordan anymore. How can I save two friendships without losing the love of my life? — Hurt and Lost

Cat toy encourages playtime

A

s we talked about the issue of overweight pets, which is the topic of our Go! cover story, I wondered how a cat owner could entice their cat to be more active. From my observations, many cats seem to do a lot of sitting. And lying. How do you change that? One Journal-World reporter says he’s seen a cat being walked on a leash, but certainly that’s not common.

Remnant

REHAB

KATIE BEAN The answer veterinarians and trainers gave was to play with cats. Playing is their exercise. With that mystery solved, I made a toy for a lazy cat I know. Because catnip gets her riled up, I put some inside so the toy would get her attention. SUPPLIES

3 fabric scraps of similar size

fabric marker

scissors

1/2 teaspoon to 1 teaspoon dried catnip

batting

thread

sewing machine

hand-sewing needle

INSTRUCTIONS 1. Trim the fabric scraps to the same size, if needed. I used three coordinating and sturdy fabrics (to withstand the cat’s claws and teeth), sized 5 inches by 4 inch-

KITTY NEEDS SOME TIME to warm up to her new toy. Perhaps it’s the idea of moving around that has her perplexed. es. It made a pretty big toy, so feel free to go smaller. 2. Fold the first scrap in quarters. Draw a curve between two opposite corners, bowing away from the folded edges. Cut along the curve. You should be cutting off the open sides, not the folded sides. 3. Keep the first scrap folded. Fold the next scrap into quarters and, lining up the folded edges with the folded edges of the first scrap. Use the first scrap as a template and cut the second scrap. Repeat with the third scrap. 4. Unfold each scrap. You should have three football-shaped pieces. Take the first two and lay them right sides together. Sew along one curve with about a 3/8-inch seam, backstitching at each end. Lay the third scrap against one of the other two pieces, right sides together, and sew along the curve.

5. For the last seam, match up the open sides and sew most of the curve, leaving a 2-inch to 3-inch opening for turning, and backstitching at the end of the seam. 6. Turn the toy right-side out. Add some of the catnip, then batting. When the toy is mostly stuffed, add the rest of the catnip. You want the catnip to be against the fabric so the cat can smell it. Stuff the toy with batting until full. 7. Fold the raw edges of the turning hole in and close the seam with a slip stitch or whipstitch. I recommend small, tight stitches so it will hold up against chewing and clawing. It’s playtime … if you can convince the cat. — Go! editor Katie Bean can be reached at go@ljworld.com.

Veterinarian takes holistic approach to healing pets BY CHANSI LONG

C

athy King, a holistic veterinarian, sometimes jokes about what she calls a “case dispensary in the sky.” That omnipotent being that determines what sort of animals will walk into her office. And in some cases, those animals are carried. That was the case a couple years back when a woman brought in a small poodle who had blown a disc and could not walk. “We were well beyond (a surgical) window, and that was not an option. I said, well, you leave him with me for 2 weeks. I’m going to give him acupuncture every day and we’ll see what happens,” King said. “Two weeks later, he walked out. To me, the lesson was, this is what’s possible. And then (the owner’s) biggest problem was she couldn’t keep him from dancing on his back feet.” King is a veterinarian who specializes in natural pet care: acupuncture, Chinese herbal medicine, food therapy and  Tui-Na (massage). King has been a veterinarian since 1984, but shifted her practice to focus on natural health in 2000. Originally she worked house calls. But business bloomed so much that she opened her current office, Kaw Valley Natural Pet Care, 514 E. Ninth St., which has been open since 2004. As a holistic veterinarian, King

uses all the tools a veterinarian normally does — stethoscope, otoscope, ophthalmoscope — but she also uses pulse and tongue diagnostics. When she examines an animal, she looks for imbalances. “Your diagnosis in Chinese medicine is, what is the imbalance?” King said. “I do a lot of nutritional guidance, offering suggestions that would create balance and harmony.” When King locates a problem, she uses a number of methods to treat it. Among them is Tui-Na, a form of massage that involves pressing the body at acupuncture points. King teaches pet owners how to do it to hasten recovery. King also uses acupuncture. Using her hands, needles or a laser, King has helped debilitated dogs recover from paralysis. Like Astra, a whippet, who had two neck vertebrae that looked like moth-eaten hunks on her Xray, damage from possible trauma. Astra couldn’t walk, but after 3 months of acupuncture, she is tramping about energetically. In recent years, King is seeing healthy pets. “More and more I’m seeing well patients, people who want to … avoid going through the chronic illnesses that we see in our pets, just like we see in ourselves,” she said. “We’re starting to see more interest in the preventive aspect and wellness building, which is so exciting.”

BREAKING BAD PET HABITS BY ERIN HEGER

MORE ON PET BEHAVIOR

W

hen Tanya Walsh brought home her Great Pyrenees puppy, she was surprised at how easily she was house trained and how well the puppy got along with her four cats. “In a lot of ways, she was a dream puppy,” Walsh said. But there was one obstacle Walsh wasn’t sure how to overcome: Her puppy, Beckett, was terrified of the car. Knowing she wanted to seek professional help training her puppy, Walsh took her vet’s advice and contacted Wagmore Canine Enrichment. The trainers at Wagmore helped Walsh and Beckett master the basics of obedience — how to sit, stay and walk on a leash. But they also helped Walsh with the biggest behavioral problem she faced with Beckett. “She just would not get in the car,” Walsh said. Using positive training techniques, Walsh and her trainers helped Beckett become comfortable with the car by first putting treats in the driveway and letting the puppy become familiar with the environment on her own terms. Slowly they worked up to putting treats on the floor of the car, then on the seats in the car. After a couple of months Beckett was jumping in the vehicle with no signs of fear.

pounds, page 8. Coles said. “Tired dogs tend to have fewer behavioral problems.” Chewing is most prevalent when puppies are young and teething, but it is a natural behavior for dogs and something they don’t grow out of, Johnson said. The best thing to do is have plenty of chew toys, and redirect the dog’s chewing to appropriate items. “Humans tend to think that dogs think like we do,” Johnson said. “We tend to want to believe that dogs do things out of resentment or jealousy or things dogs aren’t even capable of, instead of really looking at the dog’s behavior and thinking in terms of how dogs think and why they are doing this or that.” CAT PROBLEMS

DOG PROBLEMS While fear of cars is a behavioral problem that might only affect some dogs, most pets form other habits, such as chewing, scratching, digging or jumping. These behaviors can frustrate owners, but the right training and environment can often alleviate these problems. One of the most common problems pet owners face with dogs is jumping on people. This is especially true with puppies. “Jumping is commonly reinforced by owners,” said Jerri Johnson, a dog trainer, animal behavior expert and CPDT-KA with Wagmore Canine Enrichment. When puppies jump, people usually don’t mind because they are 0small. In fact, humans reinforce the behavior by thinking it’s cute and reaching down to pet the puppy. Then as the dog grows older and bigger, jumping becomes a problem. “It’s not a problem when they’re puppies,” Johnson said. “We don’t realize

Positive training can help a dog change an undesirable behavior, such as jumping, to a preferred behavior, such as sitting. we’re doing so, but it’s reinforcing to the puppy.” The most important part of changing unwanted behavior is to reward alternate behavior, Johnson said. For example, with jumping, the owner should teach the dog to sit instead. If the dog jumps, the owner should turn away and not give it attention until it calms down. Then when the dog is calm and sitting, praise it. “Any behavior that is reinforced is more likely to be repeated,” Johnson said. “If we continually reinforce good behaviors, those behaviors are more

likely to repeat themselves.” With other problems such as chewing and digging, the cause can often be boredom, said Matthew Coles, Doctor of Veterinary Medicine with the Animal Hospital of Lawrence. “If our lives get kind of busy and we’re not taking them on as many walks, perhaps, or not playing with them as much, they will look for other things to do,” Coles said. Dogs with a lot of energy can benefit from doggy day care or long runs in the mornings and evenings. “It really helps to keep them active,”

With cats, a common problem is urinating outside the litter box. While there can be medical reasons associated with urinary problems, causes can also be behavioral, Coles said. Some cats become bored with their environments, which causes stress and anxiety. Therefore, it is important to enrich the cat’s environment by giving it things to climb, scratching posts and fostering the cat’s hunting instincts by hiding its food. Ultimately, a cat’s mind needs to be stimulated, just as a dog’s does. “The biggest challenge is getting people to realize that a cat just sitting inside day after day, year after year really isn’t enjoyable,” Coles said. “Giving the cat things to do keeps the cat happy, and happier cats have fewer urinary issues.” Ultimately, providing a stimulating and engaging environment, combined with positive training techniques result in happy and well-behaved pets, Johnson said. Positive training methods don’t involve punishment but instead create a positive association and bond between owner and pet. “I can’t be a bigger advocate for positive training,” Walsh said. “It just works.”

MANY EXPERTS SAY the most effective training programs are based on operant conditioning, which focuses on positive reinforcement. PetSmart Photo

Effective practices for dog training FAMILY FEATURES

L

eash pulling, potty training issues, pet anxiety — these are just a few everyday challenges that trouble many pet parents. In fact, behavioral problems are cited in the list of top reasons dogs are put in shelters, according to the American Humane Association. Dogs are always learning, whether you’re intentionally teaching them or not. Teaching pets rules and using proper training techniques will prevent them from making up their own house rules and creating frustrating situations. In order to help pets learn appropriate behavior, pet parents need to take an active role in canine education. Some of that learning can be accomplished at home, but many pet parents have found working with a professional dog trainer is much more effective — for them as well as their dogs. “The goal of a good training program is to teach pet parents how to communicate effectively with their dogs,” said Debbie McKnight, training expert with PetSmart. “Positive, consistent communication helps create better relationships between dogs and their pet parents.” McKnight said that professional training is not an alternative to training your dog at home — it complements it. “Pet training works a lot like education for children,” she said. “A teacher provides her students with basic knowledge, and

then the student does homework to further learn the materials.” While a number of different training methods are available, McKnight recommends training classes based on the effective principles of operant conditioning, which concentrate on positive reinforcement. In the simplest terms, positive reinforcement means rewarding the dog for doing the behaviors you want in order to get him to do those behaviors more often: “Not only is it the most effective way to train, but positive reinforcement is also the most humane and fun for both you and your pet.” When you begin a training program, the Association of Pet Dog Trainers recommends:

Having your dog wear the type of collar and leash specified by the trainer.

Using high-quality training treats.

Wearing comfortable, flat, close-toed shoes and comfortable clothes allowing you to move easily.

Making sure your pet relieves itself before class so he won’t need to go during the training session.

Forgo feeding or only feed a very light meal before training so the treats will be desired by the dog. “Proper pet training is key to your dog becoming a socially well-adjusted family member,” McKnight said. “Whether you have a new puppy or an adult dog, you and your pet can both learn some new tricks that will ensure a happy, healthy relationship.”

Parents of girl sending sexts should be told Dear Dr. Wes and Miranda: My 14-yearold son texted some pictures to his girlfriend of him not wearing a shirt. She sent some back in just a camisole. Neither one was completely nude, so we know this isn’t as bad as what some kids are doing nowadays. We’ve talked to him about this being inappropriate, but now we are wondering whether we should alert the girl’s parents. Obviously our son doesn’t want us to. Dr. Wes: We always get good calls on KCUR’s Up To Date. This was an especially tough question from our last show, and one many parents are facing now. On one hand, the listener is correct — this is pretty mild compared to a lot of things kids put out into cyberspace these days. In general, I’d like to see teenagers become more conservative in their press releases (yes, that’s really what they are), but I find most to be rather deaf to my well-reasoned arguments. I wouldn’t hesitate to have the listener call the girl’s parents if the pictures were nudes or clearly sexual in nature. As we’ve discussed many times, that’s making and distributing child pornography. Parents keeping that to themselves would be enabling a very bad choice. But this is more complicated because neither picture constitutes a sexually explicit image. Boys run without shirts all the time, and girls wear skimpy clothing all summer long and even in school. So it depends on her outfit as to the propriety of the photo. In the end, however, I advised the listener to contact the girl’s parents. Based on hundreds of these situations, my educated guess is that these two teens are in the early and experimental stages of sexting and that as they grow more comfortable with the medium, more clothes will start coming off. Now is the time to intervene. That doesn’t mean I’d suggest a harsh punishment … yet. Every point of contact on teen

Double TAKE DR. WES CRENSHAW AND MIRANDA DAVIS technology is a teachable moment, and hopefully these kids will be just embarrassed enough to listen up. Unfortunately, such photos are so common now that many teens are desensitized to them, so parents may have to push a little harder if the kids don’t get the point. Just remember to keep a measured response in such matters so you’ll have room to escalate things later. In the end, you can’t stop teens from doing things like this. You have to offer them the values you believe in and then influence them to see the wisdom in, for example, NOT posting your body all over the Internet. In this case, I’d take the opportunity to open a dialogue and get ready to raise the stakes if things don’t improve. Miranda: What strikes me most in this listener’s question is how young these teens are. If they are doing this at 14, what will they do at 16 or 18? Your job is to try to reduce the chances that this will turn into a pattern of behavior that could get both kids in trouble. It sounds like you’ve talked to your son,

which is a good start, but your job isn’t done. I think telling the other set of parents is instrumental in resolving the problem. By getting the other parents involved, you can create a unified game plan so one set of parents won’t come across as the bad guys. In my house, we had one golden rule — treat others as you want to be treated. I’d slightly revise this for your situation: Treat other parents as you want to be treated. If the roles were reversed, would you want to know this about your son? The decision should be pretty easy when you look at it that way. This may not be as big deal now as it has been for other, more adventurous kids, but if the girl has not spoken with her parents as you have with your son, then there could be problems for both families later on. — Wes Crenshaw, Ph.D., ABPP, is author of “Dear Dr. Wes: Real Life Advice for Teens” and “Real Life Advice for Parents of Teens.” Learn about his new practice Family Psychological Services at dr-wes.com.

When pets are overweight, they’re more likely to develop joint problems, heart disease and even diabetes. Meppen recalled working with a table-scrap-loving bulldog that weighed about 75 pounds when he should have been closer to 45. He had knee and hip problems, as well as respiratory issues — a problem bulldogs already have by nature. “If you compound that with weight, you’re making that even harder for them,” Meppen said.

The most common culprits of overweight pets aren’t surprising. “It can be over-feeding, it can be treats … a lot of times we see it from being fed people-food,” Berg said. “Sometimes it’s just inactivity. We have more and more dogs that are becoming couch potatoes.” When prescribing a pet weightloss regimen, correctly measuring food is one of the vet’s first orders of business. Asked how much they’re feeding Fluffy, pet owners often respond with, “Well, I don’t know. I just fill the bowl.” Or, “I only feed one cup a day” — which turns out to be a big soda cup from the convenience store, Berg said. Berg said she’s seen more than one owners’ eyes open wide in disbelief when she presents them with a true 1-cup container. Simply keeping a pet’s food bowl full is popular, especially with cats, because it’s easy, Meppen said. But it also enables bad habits. “Some pets are good at self-control, but in general I’d say that they’re not,” she said. Vets may also suggest changing the type of food you’re feeding your pet.

and nutrients, low in calories and, believe it or not, a lot of dogs love them. Another idea is holding back some of the pet’s measured amount of dog food each morning, Berg said, saving the extra kibbles to give as treats throughout the day. When it comes to exercising pets, dogs are simple. Play with them in the yard or take them on a long walk. Cats aren’t always as easily amused, but Berg suggested working with them to figure out what makes them play. Laser pointers are a good toy to try, she said. Berg said that instead of leaving their cat’s food bowl full, owners could dole out small portions throughout the day, or put bowls throughout the house to make the cat hunt.

A lot of pet food is high in calories but low in nutritional value. Quality, high-nutrient, high-fiber food helps pets feel full without taking in as many calories, Berg said. Vets may also prescribe special weight-control food, which follows the same principle. Most people pass off pre-sliced carrot discs in the produce section as a salad topping, but not Meppen. “When I see them, I always think of them as a bag of dog treats,” she said. “They’re the perfect size.” Vets often suggest replacing traditional, high-calorie dog treats with veggies, either as rewards or snacks. Fresh or canned green beans, carrot pieces, peas — they’re full of fiber

After a couple of years of yo-yoing, Minnie’s weight has stabilized at about 15 1/2 pounds. Long reduced Minnie’s food portions and switched to diet food. At night before bed, she treats Minnie with a few no-salt-added canned green beans. “She loves them,” Long said. “That’s her late-night snack.” The pair also walks about a mile together almost every day, and Long has eschewed eating at the coffee table, where it’s easier to give in to slipping Minnie scraps, for more meals at the table. Long said Minnie’s body contours have reappeared, and her energy level is up. “It’s awesome to see the results,” she said.

Plank to perfection L

ately I’ve been fielding questions from friends and clients that revolve around time. They want to know how they can get maximum results in as little time as possible. What magic series of exercises must they do to drop 10 pounds and unveil a perfectly sculpted six-pack? Ah, if only it were that easy! The truth of the matter is, we have got to get over using time, or the lack thereof, as an excuse and an obstacle. I know that this is not easy, and I feel constantly timecrunched as well. But in order to really begin making strides to address our health and wellness issues, we must change our perspective in regard to the way that we view exercise and the manner in which we incorporate it into our lives. I think we are conditioned to believe that we must fit in an hour or more workout in order to make it count. And yes, in a perfect world, that would be ideal. But let’s face it, that is simply not always possible. And we will set ourselves up for failure if we try to hold ourselves to that “hour or nothing” mentality. We have time to exercise. We have time to actively engage in a fit and healthy lifestyle. We just need to look at the clock a little differently and break down strong and effective exercises in an efficient way. “I don’t have time” is an excuse. It’s a crutch. It’s procrastination, pure and simple. Because there is time. There is time for 20 squats at some point in your day. Or 20 jumping jacks. For 20 of something. And that counts. It counts because although you may not have had the time for a full-blown workout, you have achieved more than you thought you would, and you did something. And if you are still trying to find the time and motivation to take that first step, I guarantee that by starting with a simple exercise and a number of repetitions, it will start to become a habit. You will feel better about yourself and suddenly you will “find” more time for another set. Or you will add in another exercise. You’ll do it because the energy boost you get will make you feel so much better. You’ll do it because you know you should, to set an example for yourself and others. And you’ll do it because true health and

New tools used to keep pets out of hot cars BY SUE MANNING, ASSOCIATED PRESS

L

ANGELES — Good Samaritans, temperature guns and tougher laws are the newest tools in the campaign to keep animals out of hot cars, where just minutes can mean death. More calls are coming in about overheated dogs — and officials say that’s a good thing, because more people are aware of the problem and calling before it’s too late. Still, despite annual warnings, pets continue to die or suffer serious injury in hot cars. Before summer was even two days old this year, The Associated Press reported the deaths of five dogs in hot cars in Oregon, Massachusetts and New Hampshire. No one keeps tabs on annual deaths or injuries because so many different agencies handle calls. But agencies say calls have increased to 911, police departments, fire departments, animal control officers, shelters or veterinarians. The Los Angeles Police Department’s Animal Cruelty Task Force has been swamped with calls about pets in unattended cars since summer started and already has seven cases pending prosecution, said task force member Tami Shepphird, an animal control officer with Los Angeles Animal Services. People running errands are the most common offenders, but they aren’t the only ones, said LAPD Officer Jim Cherrette, also a task force member. The homeless will keep pets in cars, he said. Sometimes people will have to move into an apartment where they can’t have a pet, so they will keep it in a car, Shepphird said. “It’s more a crime of negligence than malice,” Cherrette said. Studies show that the temperature in a car — even on a mild day — can go up 34 degrees in just 30 minutes. Heatstroke affects every organ in the body, said Dr. Ben Brainard, an associate professor of critical care who helps run the emergency room for the University of Georgia’s College of Veterinary Medicine. As a dog begins to get hot, it will become anxious, agitated and start pacing, Brainard said, which heats the dog even more. Then the dog will start drooling, maybe frothing at the mouth, vomiting and defecating, the veterinarian said. As the heat starts to affect the dog’s brain, it will stumble, lose its balance and have trouble standing. It will then collapse, and finally lose consciousness, Brainard said. Fourteen states as of 2010 had laws that OS

More calls are coming in about overheated dogs — and officials say that’s a good thing because more people are aware of the problem and are calling before it’s too late.

specifically prohibit leaving an animal in a confined vehicle if it endangers an animal’s life, according to the Animal Legal and Historical Center at Michigan State University College of Law. Other states handle deaths and injury under animal cruelty statutes, the college said. A few years ago, California made it illegal to leave animals unattended in a motor vehicle if serious harm is possible. “It’s not a crime to have a dog in a car,” Shepphird said. But if gross neglect is involved and the pet dies or is injured, it can be a felony. Confronting an animal owner can be dangerous, so a bystander should call police, contact a security guard or mall manager or some second party, said Yvette Smith, an animal control officer and another member of the task force. If you are able to reach an overheated dog, use water to cool it off. “If the dog is non-responsive, get it wet and head to the vet,” Brainard said. Police and animal control officers in California can treat hot cars like crime scenes. That means taking photos, collecting evidence and all the paperwork. One of the best tools to come along is the temperature gun, which can measure the temperature from outside the car. In Los Angeles, animal control officers use them and police hope to get them soon to help prosecute dog owners when the cops or animal control arrive too late. Depending on the dog’s condition, police can break the window, wait for a tow truck driver to do it, seize the pet, write a citation or issue a warning if the owner shows up. It can cost hundreds of dollars to get an animal back, Shepphird said. If criminal charges are filed and the owners convicted, they may not get the dog back at all. “Our goal isn’t to put people in jail but to keep animals from dying in cars,” Shepphird said.

There’s something about a large-faced watch or a huge, stacked necklace that can take an outfit from a titch too scanty to a lovely summer uniform.

WATCHES: Spotted, below, boyfriend watch; found, at right, Weavers for $29.99.

Spotted it, found it: Summer accessories

O

n the off chance I decide to venture out of my dark, air-conditioned basement into the blistering heat, I try to wear as few clothes as possible without looking like I’m trying to wear as few clothes as possible. It’s a tricky thing to remain modestly dressed when every part of my body is sweating saline tears, but I like to tell myself that the short skirt and tank top I’m wearing are balanced nicely by the jewelry I paired with my outfit. There’s something about a large-faced watch or a huge, stacked necklace that can take an outfit from a titch too scanty to a lovely summer uniform. Here are three of the coolest pieces of jewelry I’ve seen Lawrencians wearing this summer as well as some similar pieces I’ve found in local shops. WATCH Watches went “out” for a while when cellphones took over the planet, but just as vinyl records are climbing back into popularity despite changes in technology, so are watches. There’s been a movement over the past

KNOTTED RINGS: Spotted, left, a handcrafted wedding band; found, right, a female version at Phoenix Gallery for $29. couple years to re-establish watches as an everyday accessory, and an even more interesting shift in trend from dainty, feminine watches to large-faced, thick-banded watches. There’s a small, quality selection of these “boyfriend watches” at Weaver’s, 901 Mass. The one I found is BlacLabel Pink brand for $29.99. STACKED NECKLACE In the interest of covering up a bare neckline, a large, stacked necklace like the one I spotted on a woman on Mass. Street works brilliantly. In summer, we’re forced into wearing relatively simple outfits without layers or interesting textures. Instead of creating complex ensembles,

we get to use accessories to add depth and variety to the clothes we wear. In lieu of a scarf or sweater, creative jewelry is a great alternative. The stacked necklace I found at Wild Man Vintage, 939 Mass., for a breezy $8 is enough to dress up any summer outfit without being too overbearingly obnoxious for the wearer. KNOTTED RING There’s nothing like a handcrafted, oneof-a-kind piece of jewelry that can make me swoon. I just happened to be talking to the man wearing this unique wedding ring when I looked down at his hand and exclaimed, “I have to take a picture of that!” He happily agreed to let me and explained that it had been made by one of his good friends. I didn’t think I would be able to find a similar ring in a local store, but I walked into Phoenix Gallery, 825 Mass., for a separate errand and stumbled upon a ring that is just about as awesome. This female version of the knotted ring is $29. — Ali Edwards can be reached at go@ljworld.com.

Vacation rental bad luck

Summer Sale Starts Now

just made our final payment on a rental for our late, late summer vacation to North Carolina. While I feel good about where we’re going, I have learned the hard way that what you see online is not always what you get. Four years ago, we took the kids to Colorado for a week of good, clean mountain air. But two hours before check-in at our paradise by the river in Estes Park, the owner, Mavis, called with news. “My water heater overflowed, and there are two dehumidifiers in the house,” she chirped with the same tone normally used for telling someone a stranger had just anonymously paid for his meal. That pleasant demeanor lured us naively to her front door, where we walked into the scene from “E.T.” where government scientists take over Drew Barrymore’s home. There were two big, whirring machines blocking the kitchen and bathroom and hoses strung all over the house. Mavis assured me that everything would be fine; in fact, the last family to stay there had had a great time. Granted, and I am not making this up, that family had also survived Hurricane Katrina. Exhausted from a long journey and knowing there wouldn’t be a place within 20 miles able to take in a family of six for a week with no reservation, we decided to stay, trusting Mavis when she told us the machines would be gone in the morning. We settled into bed (first I removed the remote control from between the sheets where Mavis had, undoubtedly, left it after washing and changing the bedding) the best we could without touching anything. For the next two days, the six of us tried to ignore the large industrial blowers and accompanying hoses. But that inner voice Oprah always talks about was telling me

something was wrong. As always, Oprah was right. On the third morning, we were greeted by Mavis’ clean-up crew who, I had hoped, was there to remove the equipment while my husband took Luke fly fishing and I took the girls horseback riding (a whole different story I titled “Raw Hide”). When I hobbled back in after an hour on the horse, I found the workers hadn’t removed the fans after all. But they HAD removed the entire kitchen floor and replaced it with biohazard plastic to keep the mold spores they’d found from becoming airborne. At this point I did what any other concerned suburban mom would do — I headed up and moved us out. My husband returned from fishing with Luke to find our bags packed, reservations made and paid (not by a stranger) at a cabin across the street and a refund from Mavis already in the mail. He was not at all surprised by the move, just the fact that I let three days go by before we made it. No plans to evacuate halfway through this time, though. As usual, we Jayhawks can handle whatever North Carolina brings; I just hope North Carolina can handle us.

If your bathroom toilet keeps randomly turning on and off … it is probably time to replace the fill valve seal located under the fill valve cap. LINDA COTTIN

REPLACE A FILL VALVE SEAL

*

f your bathroom toilet keeps randomly turning on and off at irregular intervals and you have a newer style valve without a float arm and ball, it is probably time to replace the fill valve seal located under the fill valve cap. Step 1: Purchase a new fill valve seal from your local hardware store. The Fluidmaster brand seal is perhaps the most common one and will fit most newer style fill valves. Step 2: Use the shut-off valve to turn off the water supply to the toilet; then remove the tank lid and set it in a safe place. Step 3: Flush the toilet to remove most of the water in the tank. Step 4: Firmly grasp the shaft of the fill valve with one hand and grasp

the cap at the top of the fill valve with the other hand. Step 5: Use a finger or thumb to lift the short fill valve arm all the way up and turn the fill valve cap clockwise, about 1/8 of a turn. Step 6: Release the fill valve arm and lift the cap up and off the fill valve. Step 7: Remove the old seal from underside of the fill valve cap. If you have trouble getting the seal out, use a flathead screwdriver or a dental pick to pry the seal out. Step 8: Once the seal has been removed, turn the cap over and hold it slightly above the top of the fill valve. Step 9: With your free hand, reach below the stool and turn the water on for 2-3 seconds. The water

should come squirting up out of the top of the fill valve and into the bottom of the cap. This will dislodge any sediment that may be stuck in the fill valve. Step 10: Turn the water off, remove the fill valve cap and install the new seal into the bottom of the fill valve cap. Step 11: Place the cap back on top of the fill valve and turn it counterclockwise until it snaps into place. Step 12: Turn the water back on, replace the tank lid and flush the stool for good measure before heading off to more challenging tasks around the house. — Linda Cottin can be reached at go@ljworld.com.

3 Canadian elephants flying to California BY SUE MANNING, ASSOCIATED PRESS

L

OS ANGELES — For elephants to fly, you have to do more than load trunks on a plane. Pat Derby, co-founder of the Performing Animal Welfare Society, has been working for two years to get three 10,000-pound elephants in the air. The elephants are scheduled to take off on Aug. 2 in what could be a million-dollar move. The African elephants, Iringa, 42, Toka, 41, and Thika, 31, are being retired from the Toronto Zoo and moved to PAWS’ 2,300-acre sanctuary in San Andreas. To get the elephants ready to fly, the animals had to undergo crate and noise training. A Russian cargo jet and two fleets of trucks had to be rented; pilots, drivers and crews hired; crates

built and fitted for each elephant; hydraulic gates reinstalled at the sanctuary; and barn space cleared. The amount of red tape rivaled only the green involved, but former game show host and animal activist Bob Barker is paying the bill, expected to be between $750,000 and $1 million. Zookeepers have been teaching the animals to walk in and out of their travel crates, finished in January. “We rattle the crates and make all kinds of sounds so they are used to noise,” Derby said, because “there are no test flights.” Iringa and Toka do have past plane experience — they were flown to Toronto from Mozambique 37 years ago. Would an elephant forget? “It would be the way we remember some gut feelings,” Joyce Poole, an elephant behaviorist and co-founder of

ElephantVoices, said in a phone interview from Norway. “They are used to going in and out of cages and being in small confined spaces. Otherwise, getting back into a truck could bring back some scary feelings. Obviously, they were captured and taken from their families and had some pretty terrifying experiences, but they’ve been captive for a long time. I think they’ll be fine with it.” The elephants fit snugly in their crates and will be tethered so they don’t get hurt if they hit ruts in the road or turbulence in the air, Derby said. The Russian cargo plane is bigger than a C-17 so will fit all three elephants easily, along with keepers from Toronto and crews from PAWS. There may not be on-board movies for the pachyderms, but there will be carrots and other treats in case they get the munchies.

See answer next Monday!
