Stray-bullet victim’s mother speaks out ————

Recent fatal shooting prompts warnings on reckless firing, update on Linwood girl’s progress She spent weeks in a medically induced coma after being shot in the head by a stray bullet while playing outside her home. The bullet entered Katherine’s head just above her left eye, traveled through her brain and ricocheted off the back of her skull, before coming to rest toward the back of her head — where it remains today. Following this year’s July 4

stray bullet shooting death of Blair Shanahan Lane, an 11-yearold Kansas City, Mo., girl, Katherine’s mom, JoAnne, shared her daughter’s story to help highlight the consequences of recklessly shooting firearms. “We were never into retribution,” JoAnne said of her daughter’s case, which has never

As open as a book. Leaders of the Lawrence Public Library on Sunday evening unveiled a proposed design for a $19 million expansion of the library at Seventh and Vermont streets that replaces concrete with large windows and turns part of a parking lot into a new grassy public plaza. “Our eyes all just bugged out when we first saw this design,” said Bruce Flanders, director of the Lawrence Public Library. “We had been waiting for something inspirational like this.” All four sides of the 40-year old building will get a new look, with long horizontal windows framed by terracotta stone, giving the building a more open and natural feel. About 125 members of the public attended an unveiling event Sunday evening at the library. Among the

Angela Shuckahosee and Clenece Hills plan to meet up in a couple weeks at Free State Brewing Co. to unwind, laugh, grab a bite and enjoy a beverage. Nothing significant there, except that it’ll be just a couple weeks short of 20 years since Hills handed Shuckahosee some of the most important instructions of her young life. That’s because back then, Shuckahosee and her fellow students in Mrs. Hills’ ninth-grade Advanced English class at South Junior High School found themselves prohibited from using “is,” “are, “was,” “has,” “has” or other so-called “linking verbs” in any of their written assignments. “She was trying to make us better writers,” Shuckahosee recalls. “I’ve always remembered that.” Now they won’t let each other forget. The student and teacher are — OK, rank — among dozens of pupils and educators in Lawrence to reconnect on Facebook, the pervasive social-networking site that allows friends, family and acquaintances to keep up with one another through the Web. Facebook connections are nothing unusual, with more than 750 million people signed on as active users. But educators and former students alike credit the site with giving them a new way to stay in touch, offer thanks or even build strong friendships that would’ve been unlikely back in the day. David Reber recalls catching up with only a relative handful of former students over the years, usually when they’d stop by the school during winter break or check in during a 10-year high school reunion. “Unless I ran into them at the grocery store or something, it wouldn’t happen. It was the exception, rather than the norm,” said David Reber, a biology teacher at Free State High School, who counts a few dozens former students among his Facebook friends. “Now, you’re just kind of aware what they’re doing.” Please see SOCIAL, page 4A

Suspect’s manifesto called for campaign against Muslims By Henry Chu The Los Angeles Times

OSLO, NORWAY — He wanted to ignite “a revolution,” one that would upend contemporary Norwegian and European society. The goal: to purge the continent of Muslims and punish the “indigenous Europeans” who had failed to protect their nations

from “cultural suicide.” As Norway grieved for the 93 people cut down in twin terrorist attacks, the radical views Breivik of the accused killer came into clearer view Sunday, and

raised questions about the threat posed by far-right extremists in this country and the extent to which the authorities can control it. The threat reflects a bitter resentment toward demographic changes that reach beyond Norway to neighbors such as Sweden, Denmark, Finland and the Netherlands, where far-right and anti-

immigrant parties have made major political gains in recent years. Investigators here in the Norwegian capital continued to pore over a 1,500-page treatise that was apparently posted on the Internet by suspect Anders Behring Breivik shortly before a massive bomb exploded Friday in downtown Oslo, followed by

a shooting spree at a youth camp tied to the ruling Labor Party, which is relatively more tolerant toward immigration. The chilling manifesto advocates an armed campaign against the Muslims it says are overrunning Europe. A hate-filled brew of political, Please see NORWAY, page 2A

ideological and militaristic cant, the treatise denounces Europeans who support multiculturalism and argues for spectacular violence using tactics similar to those seen Friday, such as adopting a police disguise to fool victims before killing them. Breivik has admitted to the twin attacks, which left nearly 100 injured and at least four people still missing, without accepting criminal responsibility for them, police said. His lawyer, Geir Lippestad, told Norwegian public broadcaster NRK on Sunday that Breivik “wanted a change in society and, from his perspective, he needed to force through a revolution. He wished to attack society and the structure of society.” The 32-year-old is expected to appear at a court hearing today and wants to “explain himself,” Lippestad added. Authorities are now trying to determine the credibility of a claim in the manifesto that, in London nine years ago, Breivik attended a meeting of like-minded radicals calling themselves the Knights Templar.

Trouble long brewing Even before Friday’s attacks, right-wing fanatics had long been part of Norway’s social and political landscape. They were especially active throughout the 1980s and ’90s, in the form of skinhead gangs engaged in street violence. For many years, farright groups were considered the main source of concern in the Norwegian intelligence agency’s threat assessment. But their influence was muted after a young biracial man was knifed to death in 2001 by a right-wing extremist, a killing that shocked a country that prided itself on peaceful coexistence. “That caused such a popular uproar against these movements that it stopped recruitment to a certain extent,” said Tore Bjorgo, a professor at the Norwegian Police University College and an expert on violent subgroups. A crackdown by police and preventive work by social organizations succeeded in breaking up many of the groups in the last decade, enough that they were no longer seen as much of a threat. At the same time, immigra-

tion by Muslims — who still represent only a few percentage points of Norway’s population — and the Sept. 11 attacks turned authorities’ attention to radical Islam and stirred up a new set of fears. Polls show that as many as half of Norwegians oppose the government’s immigration policy, which they deem too liberal. Breivik’s own antiIslam obsession comes against a backdrop of a general hardening of sentiment toward immigrants, reflected in the rise of Norway’s rightwing populist Progress Party, which won more than 20 percent of the vote in an election two years ago. Breivik joined the Progress Party, but reportedly dropped out several years ago because he found its anti-immigrant stance too weak. He began nursing far more extreme views, some of which he appears to have expressed in Internet postings.

Loose organization Right-wing radicals like Breivik are now presenting authorities with a different kind of challenge from that posed by the skinhead groups of the ’80s and ’90s, experts say. They do not belong to organized groups but rather form loose networks, often in online communities, which are harder to track and infiltrate. “They are not street-oriented,” Bjorgo said. “They are more intellectual; their main arena is discussion forums and Internet debates. ... It’s a much more sophisticated kind of right-wing activism.” This has limited the authorities’ room for maneuver and may have caused them to underestimate the danger posed by such extremism, analysts say. In its most recent threat assessment, Norway’s intelligence service said that rightwing extremists have been only “slightly active” in recent years, but “an increased level of activity in 2010 is expected to continue in 2011.” Breivik does not appear to have been on anyone’s radar before Friday’s terrible events. “His statements were fiercely anti-Islam, but they were not pro-violence. He always argued in a political way, using political means, which is very typical for that movement,” Bjorgo said. “That is one of the reasons why he was never detected by the security service, because there was nothing apparently special about him.”

JOANNE COOK LEANS OVER to get a kiss from her daughter Katherine after the 8-year-old told her mom that she loved her on Thursday. In February of 2008, Katherine was shot in the head while playing in the backyard of her Linwood home. The bullet remains lodged in her head and will not be removed because of the potentially harmful risks of the procedure.

resulted in an arrest. “We want it to be a positive story for Katherine.” JoAnne also speaks out two years after another stray bullet incident killed 46-year-old Lawrence attorney Deanna Lieber, as she was driving home from the Starlight Theater in Kansas City, Mo., with her daughter. As the bubbly and sociable Katherine talks about her new kittens, JoAnne said she shares the pain with other families affected by such gun violence. “I guess we feel a lot the same as any of the families that have been shot by random bullets,” she said. “We wish something would change in the way laws were written that protected innocent victims a little differently.” Both Katherine’s and Lieber’s cases remain unsolved, and accountability for those who pull the trigger in stray bullet shootings is a difficult task for the criminal justice system. In Katherine’s case, there are suspects, JoAnne said, but a crucial piece of evidence — the bullet — remains lodged in Katherine’s head. Removing the bullet poses too large a medical risk. The Leavenworth County Sheriff ’s Office did not return calls for comment on Katherine’s case. In Lieber’s case, police never publicly identified a suspect, and a spokesman for the Kansas City Police Department said there have been no new developments. Statistics for stray bullet

design features highlighted, were: ● 20,000 square feet of new space will be added to the library. All existing spaces — about 47,000 square feet — also will be completely renovated. The new space will be built around the outside edges of the current building, meaning the library may end up being about 20 feet closer to the street. ● A 70-foot wide grassy plaza will stretch between the library and a new 250space parking garage that will be just south of the library. The space is expected to accommodate a crowd of 500 people, and it will include a series of terraces to give the area an amphitheater feel. ● Meeting room space will more than double at the new library. The main auditorium will grow from 100 seats to 200 seats, and the library will include three additional meeting rooms plus about a half-dozen study rooms that also could be used for small meetings. ● The children’s area in the library will double in size. It also will include a separate area for storytimes, which currently take place in meeting room space. ● A drive-thru book lane, where people can pick up or drop off items, will be located on the west side of the building. The pedestrian entrance to the building will

shootings are not kept nationally, but unsolved stray bullet cases stretch across the country, said Ladd Everitt, director of communications for the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence. Some are the consequence of random gang shootings, while others, such as Katherine’s case, result from apparently motiveless, reckless firearm usage, he said. Tracking who shot the gun, let alone identifying what gun the bullet came from, is an uphill battle, Everitt said. Blair’s July 4 shooting death is an exception, as a police investigation identified three people who were shooting a gun near the area. The owner of the gun has since been charged with manslaughter. Everitt said stray bullet shootings are a symptom of the larger problem of gun violence. More guns on the streets — in the hands of untrained or irresponsible people — creates the environment where stray bullet shootings can occur. “We live in a society where there is very little screening for buying guns,” he said. JoAnne, who said she is not necessarily an “anti-gun” person, agrees that people need better awareness and training in firearm use. “Let’s be educated about what weapons are capable of,” she said. “And be realistic about what happens when a bullet goes somewhere that doesn’t get caught by a backdrop.” JoAnne said she doesn’t know what the clear answer is, but would favor increasing penalties for people who discharge firearms recklessly. Arizona adopted “Shannon’s Law” in 2000, which

makes discharging a firearm — with exceptions — a felony. Legislators in Missouri have discussed adding a similar “Blair’s Law” in the city limits of Kansas City. Discharge of a firearm is prohibited by both Kansas statute and Lawrence city code, and both are misdemeanors. For the past few years, though, JoAnne and her family have focused on Katherine’s progress. Through years of therapy, Katherine has made large strides in improving her daily functioning and will be entering the second grade this fall at Linwood Elementary School. But the progress slows down some with time, JoAnne said. Katherine has very little use of her left arm, which makes many tasks — such as using scissors — difficult. Katherine asks the same questions repeatedly, displaying some of the cognitive and memory deficits that will most likely last a lifetime. The successes, while much smaller than when Katherine first was able to talk or walk again after the shooting, are celebrated, such as Katherine’s ability to understand math and improve her reading skills. And while personality changes are common in brain injuries, Katherine’s has never wavered from the inquisitive social butterfly who makes everyone at ease, JoAnne said. Before visitors leave Katherine’s home, she’ll probably have one last question for them: Can she have a hug?

be on the southeast corner of the building, facing Vermont Street. ● New energy efficiency components have architects hopeful that the new building — despite it being larger — will use about 50 percent of the energy that the library currently uses. Many of the major design features of the building, such as meeting rooms and additional space, were already known. But the public had been left waiting to see new exterior designs of the building. Lawrence-based Gould Evans architects had offered some preliminary designs during last year’s campaign for the project. But members of the public and some city commissioners asked for the building to be more prominent. Jane Huesemann, a principal with Gould Evans, said that was challenging since the existing building would not support a taller structure. “Making the building very transparent so you can really see into and out of it is how we’re trying to achieve that,” she said. The library plans to host several public forums on the design to get more feedback before taking the plans to the City Commission for approval in mid-August. Dates for the public sessions will be announced in the next few days, Flanders said. Construction is scheduled to start in the spring and is expected to last for 24 months. Reaction at Sunday’s event was generally positive.

Some onlookers said they wished there was more detail available about what the parking garage would look like. It will be situated so the long edges of the garage run east and west, which allows for the plaza area between the library and the garage. Huesemann said current plans call for the garage to be about 10 feet taller than the new library building. If city commissioners decide to add another level to the garage, that discrepancy will grow. But largely, members of the public were commenting about the possibilities of outdoor films and concerts at the plaza area and about how dramatically different the library will look from the concrete structure that is there today. “I do like the new style of it,” said Andrea Bowen, Lawrence. “It is very creative, and I think it will set the right mood for a library.”

ALEC has strong ties to Kansas Legislature

1 | NEW YORK CITY

Hotel maid in sex case breaks silence The hotel maid accusing Dominique Strauss-Kahn of sexually assaulting her in a Manhattan hotel room shattered her silence Sunday, saying in a published report that the former International Monetary Fund leader grabbed and attacked her as she implored him to stop. “I said, ‘Sir, stop this. I don’t want to lose my job.’ He said, ‘You’re not going to lose your job,”’ Nafissatou Diallo told Newsweek in a cover story posted online Sunday. ABC News said it will broadcast an interview with her on three of its programs today. “I push him. I get up. I wanted to scare him. I said, ‘Look, there is my supervisor right there,”’ she told Newsweek. But Strauss-Kahn said no one was there to hear, she said, and he went on to yank up her uniform dress, tear down her pantyhose, forcefully grab her crotch and then grip her head and force her to perform oral sex. Strauss-Kahn denies the attempted rape and other charges, and his lawyers called the interviews “an unseemly circus” designed to inflame public opinion.

Several state lawmakers have been involved with corporate-funded agency By Scott Rothschild srothschild@ljworld.com

TOPEKA — While the Kansas House was wrestling with a $500 million budget hole during the past legislative session, it also found time to pass a measure urging Congress “by any means necessary” to prohibit the EPA from regulating greenhouse gas emissions, including defunding the agency’s efforts.

ALEC describes its mission as promoting free markets, limited government, federalism and individual freedom “through a nonpartisan public-private partnership of America’s state legislators, members of the private sector, the federal government and general public.” Its reach into state legislatures, including in Kansas, is deep. Each year, nearly 1,000 bills based at least in part on ALEC “model legislation” are introduced in states. Of these, an average of 20 percent become law, according to ALEC.

The resolution “opposing the EPA’s regulatory train wreck” was taken almost word-forword from “model legislation” crafted by a little-known Washington, D.C., group called the American Legislative Exchange Council. In recent days, ALEC’s influence, and its corporate backing, have been the focus of reports by several groups and news organizations.

Insurgents hang 8-year-old boy Insurgents in southern Afghanistan hanged an 8year-old boy six days after they abducted him, the Afghan government said Sunday. The boy’s captors had demanded that his father, a police officer, supply them with a police vehicle and he refused, said a statement from President Hamid Karzai’s office. The militants hanged the boy Friday in Helmand province’s Gereshk district. “President Karzai both strongly condemns this act and rejects it as a brutal and cowardly crime that is not acceptable in any religion or culture,” the statement said. It referred to the killers as “terrorists,” but did not say if they belonged to the Taliban or another of the insurgent movements fighting foreign forces and their Afghan allies. Kidnappings have become increasingly common in Afghanistan, both by criminal groups looking for ransoms and insurgents making a political statement. Most abductions are settled out of the public eye, with negotiations and cash payments. Separately, Afghan officials said NATO forces battling insurgents along an eastern highway accidentally killed three civilians who were caught in the crossfire.

FBI Murdoch inquiry awaits British probe The FBI is just cranking up a preliminary review of whether alleged phone hacking and bribery by Rupert Murdoch’s media empire violated U.S. laws, but any resolution may well have to await the outcome of British investigations. The FBI’s early fact-gathering could turn into a long saga that tests or reinforces the long-standing cooperation between U.S. and British law enforcement. Most of the records and witnesses to prove or disprove the allegations are in the hands of British investigators. The problem for Murdoch is that his business, not just his now-shuttered British tabloid News of the World, faces investigations on two continents. That includes a nascent FBI probe. Depending upon what turns up, it could head in unexpected directions, perhaps threatening other Murdoch properties, which include the Fox television network.

Bennett, of Lawrence, heard about the pantry through a friend, and needed a little extra help this month with food for her family. But it was difficult to make the visit. “It was a little embarrassing,” Bennett said. Bennett is among the increasing number of area residents making that first trip to Just Food, said Jeremy Farmer, executive director. “We get phone calls all the time where people say ‘I’ve never had to do this before but I just lost my job ... and I don’t have food,’” Farmer said. The number of people the pantry has served this month has nearly doubled since February, from about 1,200 to more

than 2,000 served in June. On a given day, the pantry sees five to 10 new clients, Farmer said. The Ballard Center, 708 Elm St., which also operates a food pantry, likewise reported an increase in need. In the first six months of 2010 the agency provided food to about 2,400 people, compared with more than 3,000 this year, said Paul Youk, program director of Penn House, a satellite office of the Ballard Center. Both Youk and Farmer attribute the increased need to high unemployment and a poor economy. Despite the increase, both agencies have been receiving enough community support to meet the need, they say. Farmer talked about how people have stepped up — everyone from small farmers

Experts’ advice in shaky economy: Rethink spending habits By Shaun Hittle sdhittle@ljworld.com

High unemployment, government cutbacks and layoffs, and a national debate about raising the country’s debt limit have done little to reassure the average American about the economic future. “Absolutely, a lot of concern,” said Trish LaRue, financial adviser at Dan Cary and Associates. That means it’s a good time for individuals to focus on their own economic health, she said.

As music blared from Forum Roller World’s loudspeakers, children skated and adults mingled at an 11-year-old Texas boy’s birthday party — until his father suddenly pulled out a gun. Shouting at kids to leave the snack area, 35-yearold Tan Do opened fire on his estranged wife and her family — killing her, her teenage sister and three other adults before fatally shooting himself in a rampage that lasted just a few terrifying moments. “Kids were having fun and all of a sudden: ‘Bang! Bang! Bang!”’ said Walt Hedrick, owner the Grand Prairie roller rink about 20 miles west of Dallas. “It was out of the clear blue. ... I didn’t know what was going on.” Police said Do, of Grand Prairie, and his wife were estranged after ongoing marital problems and may have argued before the shooting. A public records search showed no criminal record for Do.

But the Center for Media and Democracy released a report that described ALEC, which enjoys tax-exempt status as a nonprofit, as a public policy front for corporate interests, including Kansas-based Koch Industries, which helps fund ALEC. The center has listed more than 800 bills crafted by ALEC at alecexposed.org. On its website, ALEC’s “Private Enterprise B oard” includes representation of

“That’s the only thing you can do,” LaRue said. Pete Knutson, a financial adviser with McDaniel Knutson Financial Partners, said the big challenge is convincing people to rethink personal spending and saving habits developed when the economy was strong. “Whatever it is, it’s going to be better tomorrow,” Knutson said of Americans who believe the future will always bring more money and promotions. But in an uncertain economic time, that’s not as true today as it was in previous decades, he said.

It doesn’t necessarily take guidance from a financial adviser, and Knutson offers the following tips to people concerned about their economic health: ● Find out what you’re spending and how that matches your income. Numerous websites, such as mint.com, offer free, personalized budgets that link directly to bank accounts. ● Look at areas where you can cut expenses. If that doesn’t bring you where you need to be, it may be time to focus on the larger, fixed expenses,

OUGLAS COUNTY Are teachers in D DISTRICT COURT Lawrence getting raisMARRIAGE LICENSES ISSUED es this year or not?

That remains to be seen. The Lawrence school board has offered to boost salaries for each of the Lawrence school district’s 926 licensed educators — teachers, guidance counselors, speech pathologists and others — by $250 for next year, plus give each of the educators a one-time payment of $1,000 in late December. The board also has offered additional raises for teachers who have received an additional college degree or earned additional credits during the past year. Such compensation would be included in a master agreement for the coming year, which is still being negotiated between the board and the Lawrence Education Association, which is the union representing teachers. Negotiators from both sides met Thursday, but have not set another date for negotiations.

ANALYSIS

Hutchinson pool closes early after near drowning HUTCHINSON — A near drowning has led to the early closure of a public swimming pool in Hutchinson. The Hutchinson News reported that a 2-year-old boy was found unconscious Saturday in a 3-foot-deep area at

the Salt City Splash Aquatic Center. A lifeguard and manager worked to resuscitate the boy until emergency workers arrived. The boy ultimately regained consciousness. He was taken to Promise Regional Medical Center

where he was in stable condition Saturday night. Ted Nelson, of the Hutchinson Recreation Commission, says the facility closed early because staff was shaken by what had happened. The pool was reopening Sunday.

ALEC

ALEC “is a secretive and powerful front group of corporations that are investing millions of dollars a year to write business-friendly legislation at the CONTINUED FROM PAGE 3A expense of the middle class,” Common Cause, a leading companies, including watchdog group, said. Koch, Wal-Mart Stores, Bayer Corp., AT&T, State Farm Insurance, ExxonMobil Corp. and others. Many of the companies that fund ALEC oppose new air quality regulations. ALEC proposes “model legislation” based on recommendations from task forces, which are composed of industry representatives, who pay fees to have a seat at the table, and legislators. The final say-so is done by a board composed of legislators only. In Kansas, a healthy contingent of legislators have been active in ALEC for years, going to its meetings, serving in leadership positions on its board and returning to Kansas with more model legislation that they then start pushing through the legislative process.

Kansas and ALEC Each year, a group of Kansas legislators goes to ALEC meetings. Sen. Susan Wagle, R-Wichita, served as the group’s national chair in 2006 and now serves on its board of directors. Sen. Ray Merrick, R-Stilwell, also serves on the group’s board and in 2010 was named legislator of the year by ALEC. Much of the legislators’ activity is paid through ALEC, but some Kansas taxpayer money is also expended. Last year, Kansas taxpayers were billed $9,132 to send legislators to ALEC meetings. Thirteen House members and four state senators in 2010 went to ALEC’s annual meeting in Atlanta, according to state records.

Birthday CONTINUED FROM PAGE 3A

The result: A festival in downtown Wichita that will feature a parade down Douglas Avenue, an encampment with food, art and historic reenactors, and an encore “Kansas: Home on the Range” concert, which will tell the story of Kansas in song, poetry and video. The October date coincides with a League of Kansas Municipalities conference and the Prairie Fire Marathon. Both take place in Wichita that weekend and likely will draw people from across the state. “I’m a lifelong Kansan. My great-great-grandmother came to Kansas in a covered wagon,” said Martha Slater Farrell, one of the co-producers of the “Home on the Range” concert. “So the opportunity to really celebrate the 150th anniversary of this state that I love so much ...

ALEC has approximately 2,000 legislative members and more than 300 corporate members. Common Cause has said 22 of ALEC’s corporate members contributed more than $317 million to state election campaigns over the past decade. Raegan Weber, a spokeswoman for ALEC, said about two-thirds of those members are Republicans and onethird Democrats. “We are a very upfront organization,” Weber said. “ALEC is a resource for legislators to give them policy options.” Should taxpayers be concerned if their legislator is sitting down with powerful, monied special interests to write bills that will then be taken to state capitals across the nation for consideration? Weber says no. She said legislators should listen to those they will regulate, but they also listen to other opinions. “We’re just one outlet they go to,” she said. Wagle said “ALEC has a free market mindset.” She said she doesn’t believe corporations have an undue influence on members. The bottom line is that legislators who are members of ALEC believe in less government, she said. Many legislators who attend ALEC meetings have their expenses paid through “scholarships,” which companies contribute to. Each state has a legislator who raises funds for these scholarships. In Kansas, legislators can solicit contributions for the benef it of any nonprof it organization established for the purpose of educating legislators. And there is no requirement to make these contributions public. The EPA “train wreck” resolution was crafted by ALEC’s Natural Resources task force in April 2010, according to minutes of the meeting that were obtained by Bloomberg news. The panel that put the resolution together included 13 legislators from several states, including Kansas, and 21 private sector members representing Koch, ExxonMobil, and oil and coal trade groups. A year later, the resolution “opposing the Environmental P rotection Agency’s regulatory train wreck” popped up in the Kansas House and was easily approved, 100-22. — Statehouse reporter Scott Rothschild can be reached at 785-423-0668.

nate that the state’s milestone birthday ran up against a bleak economy. But celebrating it is necessary and worthwhile, he said. “It’s like telling your wife, ‘We can’t celebrate our 50th anniversary, but maybe we’ll celebrate 51 or 52,’” Norton said. “That’s not the same. It might never happen. “A lot of people are working hard to make this happen because they said, ‘Why not here? Why not now?’ “I think it’s a great effort, and it’s something we, as a state, definitely need to get behind.” — Reporter Suzanne Perez Tobias can be reached at 316-268-6567 or stobias@wichitaeagle.com.

Associated Press Writer

TOPEKA — Hearings on an ethics complaint against former Kansas Attorney General Phill Kline rehashed past incidents from the state’s abortion debates, and those incidents sometimes felt as distant as the mock battles staged by Civil War re-enactors. This past is hardly so distant, of course. The complaint against Kline before a three-member panel of the state Board for the Discipline of Attorneys stems from actions by him and his subordinates when he was attorney general from 2003 to 2007 and Johnson County district attorney in 2007 and 2008. But the state’s altered political context makes the history seem ancient. Kline is no longer in the anti-abortion vanguard, not even in Kansas, thanks to last year’s election of Gov. Sam Brownback, a fellow anti-abortion Republican. Abortion providers and abortion rights advocates seem far less powerful politically, with a string of lopsided legislative losses on policy and new regulations for providers that briefly held the possibility of making Kansas the only state without an abortion clinic. The state is embroiled in legal disputes over policies enacted this year. And Kline’s case? “Here we are, again, for days on things that should have been disposed of long before this,” he told reporters during one break in the hearings.

About the case The complaint, filed by the attorney disciplinary administrator, accuses Kline and his subordinates of mishandling abortion patients’ medical records and misleading other public officials to further their investigations of abortion providers. The panel wrapped

up its hearings Friday and will recommend to the Kansas Supreme Court what sanctions, if any, Kline should face. The panel’s decision isn’t expected for at least several weeks. Kline strongly disputes the allegations, describes the complaint as politically motivated and doesn’t trust the disciplinary process. The Supreme Court already has criticized him in past decisions in abortion cases, and four of its even justices were appointed by former Gov. Kathleen Sebelius. The court could strip Kline of his license to practice law in Kansas, but it’s no longer active. He was voted out of both the attorney general’s and district attorney’s offices and is now a visiting assistant law professor at Liberty University in Lynchburg, Va., founded by evangelist Jerry Falwell.

Timeline Questions and allegations about Kline’s conduct go back to 2003 and his first months in office as attorney general, when he launched investigations of abortion providers, including a clinic operated by Planned Parenthood in the Kansas City suburb of Overland Park. The abortion rights Democrats who succeeded Kline after he lost the attorney general’s job have themselves left office, and Sebelius became U.S. health and human services secretary in 2009. Kline continued his investigation of the Planned Parenthood clinic as Johnson County district attorney and filed 107 criminal charges against it in October 2007. That case, delayed by legal disputes over patient records and Kline’s conduct, has a preliminary hearing set for Oct. 24-26 in Johnson County District Court to determine whether it will go to trial. Even as Kline filed his charges in 2007, anti-abortion groups were pushing successfully, through petitions, to force Johnson County to convene a grand jury to investigate the Planned Parenthood clinic.

The grand jury disbanded in 2008 without issuing any indictments, and its interactions with Kline and his staff were the focus of the last part of Kline’s ethics hearing.

Details The presiding grand juror, Stephanie Hensel, testified that Kline and his staff misled the group about what Kansas law required of Planned Parenthood when it came to reporting cases of possible sexual abuse of children — leading jurors to issue a subpoena for records. The grand jury retained its own attorneys, not wanting to rely exclusively on Kline and his staff for legal guidance. Abortion opponents have made much of negotiations involving Hensel, the grand jury’s attorneys and Planned Parenthood over documents after the subpoena was issued but never enforced. The negotiators even contemplated a deal that would have restricted the district attorney’s office, though the severity of the limits was disputed. But why do such details matter now? They don’t answer the specific question of whether Kline and his staff misled the grand jury. The Planned Parenthood clinic still faces criminal prosecution, and if anti-abortion groups want other matters investigated, they can, under Kansas law, force Johnson County to convene another grand jury. Yet Kline is defending his reputation as he defends his law license. Opponents have used his name as a codephrase for political extremism on the right, and he took time during his testimony to counter their presumption that going after abortion providers was an obsession.

PHYLLIS SIEGEL, 77, ARMS RAISED, and Connie Kopelov, 85, in wheelchair, both of New York, celebrate after becoming the first same-sex couple to get married at the Manhattan City Clerk’s office on Sunday in New York.

Hundreds of N.Y. couples wed on 1st day for gay marriage By Chris Hawley Associated Press Writer

NEW YORK — Hundreds of gay couples dressed in formal suits and striped trousers, gowns and T-shirts recited vows in emotion-choked voices and triumphantly hoisted their long-awaited marriage certificates on Sunday as New York became the sixth and largest state to recognize same-sex weddings. Couples began saying “I do” at midnight from Niagara Falls to Long Island, though New York City became the sometimes raucous center of action by daybreak Sunday as couples waited on a sweltering day for the chance to exchange vows at the city clerk’s office. Thousands of protesters rallied in several cities around the state, a signal that the long fight for recognition may not be over just yet. State Sen. Ruben Diaz, a minister who was the sole Democrat to vote against gay marriage when the Legislature approved it, told a crowd near the United Nations that he and other opponents would try to get Sunday’s marriages annulled, saying judges broke the law by waiving the 24-hour waiting period without a good reason. “We’re going to show them next week that everything they did today was illegal,” he said, speaking in Spanish. “Today we start the battle! Today we start the war!” But a party atmosphere reigned in the lobby of the Manhattan clerk’s office, with cheers and applause breaking out whenever a couple was handed their white-and-blue wedding certificate. Balloons floated overhead. One couple wore matching kilts; another wore sparkly crowns. Children scurried up and down the lobby; workers with bullhorns called out the numbers of each couple.

Poignant signs of pent-up emotion were common from couples who had in some cases waited for years to wed. Couples cried and voices quavered. Newlywed Douglas Robinson exclaimed, “You bet your life I do!” when asked if he would take Michael Elsasser as his spouse. The first couple to marry in Manhattan were Phyllis Siegel, 77, and Connie Kopelov, 85, who have been together for 23 years. Kopelov arrived in a wheelchair and stood with the assistance of a walker. During the service, Siegel wrapped her hand in Kopelov’s hand and they both grasped the walker. Witnesses cheered and wiped away tears after the two women vowed to honor and cherish each other as spouses and then kissed. “I am breathless. I almost couldn’t breathe,” Siegel said after the ceremony. “It’s mind-boggling. The fact that it’s happening to us — that we are finally legal and can do this like everyone else.” Outside afterward, Siegel raised her arms exultantly as Kopelov, in the wheelchair, held out a marriage certificate. New York’s adoption of legal same-sex marriage is viewed as a pivotal moment in the national gay rights movement and was expected to galvanize supporters and opponents alike. The state joined Connecticut, Iowa, Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Vermont, along with Washington, D.C., when it voted last month to legalize gay marriage. Protest rallies were carried out in Manhattan, Buffalo, Rochester and Albany on Sunday afternoon. Gay marriage opponents unhappy that Gov. Andrew Cuomo and lawmakers legalized samesex marriage last month are calling for a statewide referendum on the issue.

readied rival debt-limit emergency fallback plans in hopes of reassuring world financial markets today the U.S. government will avoid an unprecedented default in barely a week. House Speaker John Boehner summoned rank-and-file conservative lawmakers in a Sunday-afternoon conference call to be ready for compromise that is “going to require some of you to make some sacrifices.” He said the new legislation, expected to be unveiled as early as this morning, would cut federal spending, raise the government’s borrowing authority and be able to clear both houses of Congress, according to one official familiar with his remarks on the call. Officials said that plan was likely to provide for an immediate increase in the debt limit of $1 trillion, while making somewhat larger cuts in federal spending. Additional spending reductions and greater borrowing authority would depend on future action by Congress — a two-step process that Obama has ruled out. Across the Capitol, Senate Democratic leader Harry Reid worked on an alternative to cut spending by $2.7 trillion and increase the debt limit by $2.4 trillion — enough to satisfy Obama’s demand that the current crisis not recur before the 2012 elections. Reid said the plan “meets Republicans’ two main criteria” — spending cuts greater in size

— Speaker John Boehner in an interview on Fox than the increase in borrowing authority and no new revenue. The events unfolded in a crisis atmosphere — in a sweltering city swarming with summertime tourists — a little more than a week before an Aug. 2 deadline for action by Congress to raise the government’s $14.3 trillion debt limit. Without action by that date, the Treasury will be unable to pay all its bills, possibly triggering a default that could have severe consequences for the U.S. economy and the world’s, too. Officials — and many stockholders — were holding their breath to see how the uncertain situation would affect financial markets in the U.S. and around the world as they opened after the weekend of crisis negotiations. Early results from Asian markets showed no major swings. Obama spoke with Boehner by phone during the day, then met with Reid and House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi at the White House. At the same time, several officials said leadership aides spent Sunday trying to produce a compromise that could quickly clear both houses. One official, speaking on condition of anonymity, portrayed the Democrats’ White House meeting as an unsuc-

Expiring drug patents to bring drop in prices By Linda A. Johnson Associated Press Writer

The cost of prescription medicines used by millions of people every day is about to plummet. The next 14 months will bring generic versions of seven of the world’s 20 bestselling drugs, including the top two: cholesterol fighter Lipitor and blood thinner Plavix. The magnitude of this wave of expiring drugs patents is unprecedented. Between now and 2016, blockbusters with about $255 billion in global annual sales are set to go off patent, notes EvaluatePharma Ltd., a London research firm. Generic competition will decimate sales of the brand-name drugs and slash the cost to patients and companies that provide health benefits. Top drugs getting generic competition by September 2012 are taken by millions every day: Lipitor alone is taken by about 4.3 million Americans and Plavix by 1.4 million. Generic versions of big-selling drugs for blood pressure, asthma, diabetes, depression, high triglycerides, HIV and bipolar disorder also are coming by then.

The flood of generics will continue for the next decade or so, as about 120 brand-name prescription drugs lose market exclusivity, according to prescription benefit manager Medco Health Solutions Inc. “My estimation is at least 15 percent of the population is currently using one of the drugs whose patents will expire in 2011 or 2012,” says Joel Owerbach, chief pharmacy officer for Excellus Blue Cross Blue Shield, which serves most of upstate New York. Those patients, along with businesses and taxpayers who help pay for prescription drugs through corporate and government prescription plans, collectively will save a small fortune. That’s because generic drugs typically cost 20 percent to 80 percent less than the brand names. Doctors hope the lower prices will signif icantly reduce the number of people jeopardizing their health because they can’t afford medicines they need. Dr. Nieca Goldberg, director of The Women’s Heart Program at NYU Langone Medical Center in Manhattan, worries about patients who are skipping checkups and halving pills to pare costs. “You can pretty much tell by the numbers when I check the

BRIEFLY Ancient bell found in Jerusalem sewer JERUSALEM — A tiny golden bell pulled after 2,000 years from an ancient sewer beneath the Old City of Jerusalem was shown Sunday by Israeli archaeologists, who hailed it as a rare find. The orb half an inch in diameter has a small loop that appears to have been used to sew it as an ornament onto the clothes of a wealthy resident of the city two millennia ago, archaeologists said. When Eli Shukron of the Israel Antiquities Authority shook it Sunday, the faint metallic sound was something between a clink and a rattle. The bell’s owner likely “walked in the street, and somehow the golden bell fell from his garment into the drainage channel,” Shukron said. The relic was found last week. Shukron said it was the only such bell to be found in Jerusalem from the Second

Temple period, and as such was a “very rare” find. The Second Temple stood from about 515 B.C. until A.D. 70.

At least 4 dead in Wisconsin boat crash LAKE HALLIE, WIS. — Officials say a western Wisconsin boat crash killed four people and left a groom-to-be hospitalized. The Chippewa County Sheriff’s office says the bodies of two Minnesota men missing since the crash were found Sunday, bringing the death toll to four. A pontoon-like boat carrying six people as part of a prewedding celebration collided head-on with a speedboat carrying two people Friday night on the Chippewa River. The crash killed 28-year-old Matthew Overhulser and 50year-old Mark Michels, both of Eau Claire. Overhulser was part of the wedding party. Michels was driving the speedboat.

cessful attempt to persuade Obama to accept a two-step he has said he won’t agree to. There were numerous suggestions of progress — both Boehner and Reid now support plans without immediate increases in government revenue — but no announced compromise. Similarly, the precise elements of the rival fallback plans were sketchy. Boehner’s revised measure would fall far short of a Housepassed bill that was rejected in the Senate late last week. It had called for raising the debt limit on condition of $6 trillion in spending cuts and congressional approval of a constitutional balanced budget amendment for state ratification. Reid’s office declined to provide any details of his alternative, except to say it would cut $2.7 trillion in spending over a decade without any tax increases. Any sum that large would require either cuts to benefit programs that aides said Reid preferred to leave untouched, or savings from the Pentagon, possibly by assuming the end of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. It appeared the White House was largely consigned to a spectator’s role. Asked what the administra-

tion’s plan was to avoid default, Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner said, “Our plan is to get Congress to raise the debt ceiling on time.” The state of play veered between bipartisanship and brinkmanship on an issue of immense economic consequences. Despite hours of compromise talks in the Capitol, lawmakers’ aides had so far been unable to agree on a two-step plan that would satisfy Obama’s demand for a large enough increase in the debt limit to tide the Treasury over until after the 2012 elections. White House Chief of Staff Bill Daley said anything short of that would be a gimmick and prompt the world to say: “These people just can’t get their act together.” Interviewed on Fox, Boehner said, “I would prefer to have a bipartisan approach to solve this problem. If that is not possible, I and my Republican colleagues in the House are prepared to move on our own.” White House and congressional leaders talked past each other on the Sunday TV shows as negotiations unfolded in secrecy. “There will be a two-stage process. It’s just not physically possible to do all of this in one step,” Boehner said. “I know the president is worried about his next election. But, my God, shouldn’t he be worried about the country?” With an eye on the financial markets, Geithner insisted anew the United States would not default. “It’s just unthinkable,” Geithner said. “We never do that. It’s not going to happen.”

The bodies of 25-year-old Luke Pohl of Elk River, Minn., and 28-year-old Matthew Simonson of Brooklyn Park, Minn., were found Sunday. Leo Pohl of Buffalo, Minn., was to have been married Saturday. He remains hospitalized.

Ring peddled polar bear hides, walrus tusks ANCHORAGE, ALASKA — Eskimo hunters on an island in the Bering Sea were offered not only cash but firearms, ammunition, marijuana, cigarettes and snow machines for walrus ivory tusks and polar bear hides that were illegally sold, according to federal prosecutors. When investigators totaled the take, the marine mammal peddling ring was responsible for the illegal sale and transport of approximately 230 pounds of walrus tusks valued at about $22,000 and two polar bear hides for $2,700, not to mention the tusks, skulls, teeth, jaw bones and other animal parts found in the

home of the couple charged in the case. They also sold machine guns. “This case demonstrates that there is significant volume of illegally taken wildlife parts being transferred in violation of federal law,” said Kevin Feldis, chief of the criminal division of the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Anchorage. “Unfortunately that world wildlife problem is an issue for Alaska.” Federal law allows Indian, Aleut or Eskimos who reside in coastal Alaska to hunt and kill walrus and polar bears without a permit for subsistence purposes. But, they can’t turn around and sell the animal parts to non-Natives. They can make money by turning the parts into a Native handicraft to be sold.

Even people with private insurance or Medicare aren’t filling all their prescriptions, studies show, particularly for cancer drugs with copays of hundreds of dollars or more.

Feathers

The new generics will slice copayments of those with insurance. For the uninsured, who have been paying full price, the savings will be much bigger. Generic medicines are chemically equivalent to the original brand-name drugs and work just as well for nearly all patients. When a drug loses patent protection, often only one generic version is on sale for the first six months, so the price falls a little bit initially. Then, several other generic makers typically jump in, driving prices down dramatically.

Rural efforts Officials in some rural Kansas counties are leery of new state programs intended to stop the rural population drain.

A

couple of initiatives championed by Gov. Sam Brownback are getting mixed reviews in the rural counties they were intended to benefit. Only about half of the eligible counties have signed on to a program to help people who move to their counties pay their student loans, and a number of local officials are questioning whether an income tax break for new residents will do much to raise their populations or boost their local economies. The state approved a plan earlier this year that would allow counties to partner with the state to repay 20 percent or up to $3,000 of students loans for college graduates who move to one of 50 rural Kansas counties designated as “rural opportunity zones.” Counties must contribute half the money to pay for the loan program and, according to recent news reports, only 23 counties have agreed to participate. Some county officials simply think that if the college graduates are working, they should pay off their own loans, while other are hesitant to commit to an untested program. Their concern seems justified. The program might be a good incentive to help counties attract someone to fill an essential job, such as a teacher. However, because college graduates don’t have to move from out of state to get the benefit, it seems likely that it would attract students who simply move back in with their parents and perhaps work at a low-paying job while they search for better employment after graduation. State officials point out that counties wouldn’t get caught “holding the bag,” as one commissioner put it, if the scholarship payment program is discontinued in the state. That lack of commitment may be good news for counties, but it’s not such good news for college grads considering moving to one of the rural communities at least in part to take advantage of the loan repayment program. Concerning the income tax program, only people who move to Kansas from other states would be eligible for the five-year break. Kansans pay an average of $1,800 a year in income taxes, so it could be an attractive benefit. However, the costs of moving would be a factor, along with the availability of jobs that would allow new residents to earn a reasonable income on which they would pay taxes. In both incentives, jobs are the key. Without the jobs, it’s unlikely that either the income tax or student loan programs will have a significant impact on declining population in rural Kansas counties. In at least one Kansas county, the incentives don’t address the most urgent problem. An official in Washington County said jobs are available, but the county doesn’t have affordable housing for the people who would fill those jobs. More incentives for people to build middle-income housing might be more to the point in that county. Time will tell how beneficial the new programs will be. The income-tax program doesn’t go into effect until Jan. 1, and perhaps more rural counties will be convinced of the benefits of the loan-repayment program. The state deserves credit for recognizing the problems associated with declining population in rural parts of the state, but these initial efforts may miss the mark for addressing those problems.

When the middle wakes up, look out W A S H I N G T O N — It was Ed Miliband, the British Labor Party leader, who posed the haunting question in Wednesday’s parliamentary debate about the phonehacking scandal: “Why didn’t more of us speak out about this earlier?” Miliband blamed political intimidation by Rupert Murdoch’s press empire: “The answer is, of course, what we all know and used to be afraid to say: News International was too powerful.” But that doesn’t explain the sudden discontinuity — how a story went from inaction to outrage. The basic facts of the phonehacking scandal were hardly a secret. A parliamentary inquiry last year showed the extent of the snooping and suggested that there had been a cover-up by the police and News International. Yet British politicians didn’t take action until a sickening new fact was added to the mix: The hacking victims had included a 13-year-old murder victim named Milly Dowler. This was the tipping point. It was like the collapse of a bridge that had stood solid as millions of vehicles rumbled across, but ruptured with the addition of one more car. Just so, the tale of Milly Dowler produced a turn in public opinion, a galvanizing jolt to the politicians and a catastrophic event for Murdoch. Maybe it’s stretching things, but I see a similar inflection point in the American public’s attitude

lesson is that the “greatTheslumbering middle still makes the decisive difference in politics, when it pays attention.”

about the debt-limit extension. For months, President Obama has been warning that GOP brinksmanship was dangerous. Along with every responsible economist and business leader, the president said it was reckless to hold hostage the nation’s creditworthiness. Republicans kept barreling through this flashing yellow light. But all of a sudden, the light turned red. Polling by The Washington Post and other organizations showed a sharp increase in public worry about the potential cost of the debt-limit shenanigans. What is happening in these opinion swings that move an issue from the usual “ho-hum” to a level of concern that forces political action? I asked pollster

Andrew Kohut of the Pew Research Center, who has been sampling opinion in America and abroad for decades. Kohut calls it the “we’ve-hadenough factor.” He explains: “All of a sudden, people realize, Holy Moly, this is really bad! Prior to that, they had looked the other way.” The key change agents are the “independents” in the middle. Partisans on either side already know what they think — whether it’s a question in Britain about phone hacking or one in America about the debt limit. But folks in the middle take awhile to form their opinion; when they finally do, the balance tips decisively. Big political changes reflect breaks in the smooth contour of opinion, especially among these independents. Kohut cites the public’s slowly rising support since the mid-1990s for the federal government’s role in solving problems. But that support broke after Obama pushed so hard for health care legislation in 2009, without a national consensus. By the fall of 2010, among independents, there was an 11 percentage point increase in mistrust for Washington compared to 2006, and a 26-point increase in support for the GOP’s ability to reduce the budget deficit. This shift among independents was the sea change behind the 2010 congressional elections. Sometimes there is a galvaniz-

ing fact that drives the shift in opinion — a riveting new detail such as the phone hacking of a 13year-old girl that breaks through the fog and makes the general public pay attention. Most people don’t usually follow politics all that closely. But in such moments, says Jon Cohen, The Washington Post’s director of polling, “the reality becomes clear, and people react to facts on the ground.” This is what finally happened on the debt-limit debate, which initially was abstract and confusing but became more concrete. Cohen notes that as the Aug. 2 deadline approached, Americans began to focus on the potential costs of a default. A Post poll last week found that 80 percent of Republicans believed a default would cause “serious harm” to the economy. Public opinion data like these changed the Washington debate. The lesson is that the great slumbering middle still makes the decisive difference in politics, when it pays attention. Partisan voices may seem to dominate the debate. But the changes that matter — as when the British public decides it’s fed up with Rupert Murdoch’s brand of journalism, or when the American public demands that politicians stop playing games with the budget — happen because people in the center get angry and demand action. — David Ignatius is a columnist for Washington Post Writers Group.

PUBLIC FORUM

Godly nation

Scandal may spur news controls When I first read that media mogul Rupert Murdoch had closed down his sensationalist British tabloid News of the World, my first reaction was, “Good riddance!” But I’m no longer rejoicing — the scandal around the now defunct daily’s unscrupulous journalism will encourage government controls of the media worldwide. I can already see Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez, or Ecuador’s President Rafael Correa, or other demagogues in Latin America, the Middle East and other parts of the world saying, “If the British government is considering stronger mechanisms to control media excesses, why shouldn’t we?” In fact, since it was first reported that Murdoch’s News of the World had engaged in apparently illegal wiretaps, bribes and other shady tactics to beat its competitors, British Prime Minister David Cameron and other key opinion makers have called for new systems to control illegal activities by the media. Cameron said that Britain’s Press Complaints Commission, a self-regulatory body funded by media companies, “has failed” and “lacks public confidence.” The prime minister, who is under fire at home for his cozy ties with Murdoch’s media empire, is proposing to replace the PCC with an external commission that would be independent both from the media companies and the government. Janine Gibson, editor of The Guardian, the newspaper that led the investigation into News of the World’s dubious practices, wrote that the PCC failed largely because “its paymasters,” the newspaper publishers, didn’t demand that the commission hire a credible outside inquiry into the Murdoch newspaper.

“There is too large a concentration of power at the heart of the newspaper industry — and patently too weak a sense of purpose, for this (self-regulatory) system to work,” she wrote. Gibson proposed creation of “an independently licensed body ... funded, but not in any way answerable to government” to replace the PCC. Some U.S. media analysts, including Juan Cole of the University of Michigan, have been quoted as supporting a return to the fairness doctrine, a U.S. Federal Communications Commission policy that required radio and TV stations to present controversial issues in a manner the commission would view as honest and balanced. The 1949 policy was discontinued in 1987. In Latin America, in addition to Cuba, which makes no bones about state censorship of the media, Venezuela passed a media law in 2004 that allows the government to monitor the content of radio and television stations. Ecuador is about to pass a government-sponsored law that would create a regulatory commission to supervise both electronic and print media. The Ecuadorean press bill may be the worst in Latin America, with the exception of Cuba. Correa, Ecuador’s populist president, has repeatedly called for a new law “to

avoid excesses of the media,” after leading newspapers published documents showing that his brother, Fabricio Correa, had obtained contracts worth more than $300 million from his government. Correa held a wide-ranging national referendum May 7, and — by including his controversial media control proposal amid several other more popular plans — succeeded in winning a mandate to pass his media bill. Ricardo Trotti, head of the press freedom project of the Inter American Press Association, told me last week, that the bill is almost sure to become law shortly. It will create a seven-member media monitoring commission, most of whose members will be directly or indirectly appointed by the government, he said. “The danger is that this commission will be able to punish the media, and could allow the president to interfere with editorial content,” Trotti said. “We think that the best way to regulate the media is to make it subject to the same general laws that apply to all members of society.” My opinion: I agree. If Murdoch’s newspapers engaged in illegal wiretappings, bribery or other illegal activities, these actions should be punished with the same laws that criminalize such behavior by any other citizen. The alternative — creating special press regulatory commissions — may or may not work in Britain and a few other countries with strong democratic traditions, but will almost surely be used in the rest of the world to justify new — and more stringent — controls on the press. It’s a risky road that is likely to do more harm than good. — Andres Oppenheimer is a Latin America correspondent for the Miami Herald.

To the editor: America was founded as a democracy under God! In 1782, the United States voted to approve the Holy Bible for use in all schools. Harvard University was the first university established and was strictly Christian. The student handbook’s rule No. 1 was they had to know Latin and Greek to study the scriptures. To say our nation has not moved from its original foundation is to ignore reality. American people are demanding that we remove God from our government and businesses. Melinda Henderson, in her July 15 letter, called God in government a “theocratic oligarchy” and business “Biblical capitalism.” This type of thinking caused us to lose our spiritual equilibrium and reversed our values. We have ridiculed God’s word and called it pluralism. We worship other gods and call it multiculturalism. We endorse perversion and call it alternative lifestyles. We reward laziness and call it welfare. We kill unborn children and call it choice. We kill abortionists and call it justifiable. We don’t discipline our children and call it building self-esteem. We abuse power and call it political savvy. We create profanity and pornography and call it freedom of expression. As a whole, our nation is turning its back on God, but God has said in II Chronicles 7:14: “If my people, which are called by my name shall humble themselves and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways, they I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sins, and heal their land.” Are you seeking his face?

The Cast Pattern It’s metal Monday at the Jackpot Music Hall, 943 Mass., as The Cast Pattern, Bone Dance, Melting Point of Bronze and Canyons all play tonight, giving you the perfect outlet to channel your Monday rage into, even if prolonged exposure to these acts could make your ears bleed. The headliners play the kind of fast, tight, piercing metal that has become the industry standard in the last decade. Bone Dance, contrary to popular belief, doesn’t sing much about bones or dancing, but they do bring the doom and gloom in ample supply. Melting Point of Bronze provides a nice change of pace with some good, old-fashioned speed metal, and Canyons splits the difference, providing a faster pace and the throaty scream/singing we know and love.

BRIEFLY 2 people die in apartment fire

Amtrak to restore full service in Missouri

MISSION (AP) — A fire in a large apartment building in the Kansas City suburb of Mission has claimed two lives. The Kansas City Star reported that a man and a woman were found dead early Sunday in a bedroom. They were not immediately identified. Chief Phil Hodgdon, of Consolidated Fire District No. 2 in Johnson County, said the fire was reported at 4 a.m. at The Falls, a 400-unit building. He said flames burned six apartments and other units suffered smoke damage. Two other people were sent to a hospital — a resident who suffered smoke inhalation and a firefighter who had heat exhaustion.

KANSAS CITY, MO. (AP) — Amtrak plans to restore full train service Wednesday between Kansas City and St. Louis. Amtrak announced over the weekend that the Missouri River Runner will resume operating its morning westbound 311 train from St. Louis and the afternoon eastbound 316 train from Kansas City. Until that happens, chartered motor coaches will continue to be used. The disruptions started July 2 and have been the result of flooding. Freight trains unable to travel along their normal routes because of high waters had been using the tracks the passenger trains normally use.

Legacy recruit on KU’s radar ——

Guard Sanders’ dad a Jayhawk 1975-79 By Gary Bedore gbedore@ljworld.com

Somebody, somewhere, long, long ago came up with the idea of riding a horse to get someplace faster. Good idea. Car, even better. Radio, cool. Television, terrific upgrade, thanks largely to HBO’s “Curb Your Enthusiasm.” Bathing suit, nice. Bikini, really, really nice. Complacency, bad. Tinkering, good. A year ago, upon completion of the Lawrence Amateur Golf Association’s Big Event, also known as the city tournament, one of the area’s most accomplished senior golfers, local insurance man Mike Grosdidier, had an idea for how to improve it. He wanted the country clubs to get involved again. Thanks to Grosdidier and the cooperation of Lawrence Country Club, it happened. Unfortunately, Grosdidier didn’t compete because Tiger Woods isn’t the only strong stick whose knee has put him on the disabled list, but he enriched the experience for those who did. For some, Sunday represented the first opportunity to play LCC since its fabulous facelift. Friendly head pro Jon Zylstra was happy to have so many new eyes on the course, but a golfer, especially a pro, is nothing if not a tinkerer. So Zylstra shared his ambitious thoughts on how to jazz up the tournament. “Have it over two weekends at all four courses,” Zylstra said, meaning LCC, Eagle Bend and both Alvamar courses. “Throw out a number, let’s say, there are 150 participants. You play stroke-play the first weekend.” One course one day, another the next. “Have eight flights, and the top eight finishers in each flight in stroke play advance to match John Young/Journal-World Photo play the next weekend,” Zylstra SPENCER WILSON FOLLOWS THROUGH ON A SHOT ON THE FIRST HOLE at Lawrence Country Club.

Christian Sanders began to draw the attention of major-college basketball recruiters in March when the 6-foot-3, 180pound junior combo guard helped propel his Houston St. Thomas High team to a Texas state championship. The pursuit of Sanders, son of former Kansas University guard Brad Sanders, intensified in early June. That’s when Christian won the three-point shooting contest — and made the allstar team — at the Under Armour Best of the Best camp Christian Sanders in Atlanta. In a short span he has received offers from Stanford, Colorado, Texas, Maryland, Harvard and Oklahoma State and is also being recruited by Brad Sanders, KU and others. circa 1978 “It’s been a learning experience for the family. It’s been enjoyable in many ways, but also a pretty serious process,” former Leavenworth High standout Brad Sanders said Sunday in a phone conversation, indicating recruiting has changed a lot since his years (1975-79) at KU. “It’s clearly a business. It can be a bit overwhelming not only for a 17-, 18-year-old but an entire family.” Christian Sanders, who plans to make some official visits this fall before selecting a school, is currently playing for the Houston Defenders at an AAU tournament in Florida. “If you can imagine these kids playing during July and the outof-bounds is lined with head coaches from all over the country ... that (short recruiting) period makes a difference where you go and don’t go. It’s very, very nerve-wracking, certainly for dads and moms but also players,” Brad said. Christian, whose mom, dad and older brother attended Kansas, made an unofficial visit to KU on June 30, indicating at the time it was a “great” visit and he was looking forward to KU’s coaches evaluating him this summer. “From mom and dad’s perspective, we are Jayhawkers so we’ve got a loyalty for KU, but this is Christian’s decision,” Brad said, indicating KU’s staff is watching Christian seriously this summer for the first time. “Christian moved away from (Wichita) Kansas when he was in fifth, sixth grade. He’s had most of his influential years in Texas. Please see RECRUIT, page 3B

Rays rookie Cobb clobbers Kansas City, 5-0 Relievers Cesar Ramos, Joel Peralta and Jake McGee held the Royals to one hit the final two innings to finish off the Rays’ eighth shutout of the season. “It was a big disappointment,” Cobb said of the blister. “I wanted to throw at least eight innings, maybe nine.

Tour champ Evans keeps Australia up late PARIS (AP) — Cadel Evans has been keeping fans back home up all night watching him become the first Australian to win the Tour de France. It’s a victory that’s been a long time coming. Over the years, Evans has been better known for failing to live up to expectations than for overachieving. He finished second in the 2007 Tour and was expected to win the next year, but was runner-up again. Last year, he was leading the race but crashed and fractured his left elbow. The pain was too much, and he dropped out of contention in tears, ultimately finishing 50 minutes behind winner Alberto Contador. Laurent Cipriani/AP Photo This time, persistence, planning TOUR DE FRANCE WINNER CADEL — and a little good luck — paid off. EVANS OF AUSTRALIA WALKS from the “I hope I brought a great deal of podium after winning the Tour de joy to my countrymen, my counFrance on Sunday in Paris. try,” Evans said Sunday after

Storylines for Big 12’s new math By David Thomas McClatchy Newspapers

The Big 12’s annual Media Days gathering is today and Tuesday at the Westin Galleria in Dallas. The annual event serves as a kickoff to the coming football season, and there will be plenty of questions for coaches and invited players to answer in a season of big changes for the conference. Here are five storylines to follow for the Big 12: 1. The new Big 12 Gone are Colorado (Pac-12) and Nebraska (Big Ten). With a 10-team Big 12, the North-South divisions and the conference championship game are gone, too. Now teams will play a complete roundrobin schedule, which means one more conference game for each team and also eliminates teams from gaining a possible advantage based on the schedule rotation of games against the opposite division. 2. Is Oklahoma a national title contender? The large majority of preseason national rankings released thus far have the Sooners at either No. 1 or No. 2. Eight starters are back from an offense that averaged 37.2 points per game last year. Included are quarterback Landry Jones, who was second in the nation in passing yards and touchdowns, and receiver Ryan Broyles, who led the nation in receptions and was third in yards. Oklahoma has a 36-game home winning streak, so the Sooners’ road games are worth a look. And there are two big away games: a nonconference game at Florida State on Sept. 17 and at Oklahoma State to end the regular season. 3. If not Oklahoma ... The Sooners are the clear conference favorite, receiving 41 of 43 first-place votes in the preseason media poll. Texas A&M and Oklahoma State split the other two first-place votes. A&M was 9-4 last season, beat Oklahoma 33-19 in College Station and finished the season ranked in the Top 25 for the first time since 1999. Seventeen starters return, so expectations are high, but there is that Nov. 5 game at Oklahoma. Oklahoma State’s record has steadily improved in coach Mike Gundy’s six years. After an 11-2 record last season, a conference title is the next step. Nine offensive starters are back, including the big-play combination of quarterback Brandon Weeden and receiver Justin Blackmon. Schedule concern: Two of the Cowboys’ first three Big 12 games are at Texas A&M and Texas. They also must play at Missouri and Texas Tech. 4. Can Texas return to the top? The Longhorns went 5-7 last season and saw their 12-year bowl streak end. That led to big off-season changes in Austin, with some of the biggest coming in the coaching staff. Among the five new assistants: innovative co-offensive coordinator Bryan Harsin, who was hired from Boise State, and defensive coordinator Manny Diaz, hired from Mississippi State after Will Muschamp left to become head coach at Florida. With questions at quarterback, true freshman running back Malcolm Brown — one of the nation’s top recruits — needs to make the big and immediate impact expected of him. 5. Baylor’s Mr. Excitement Baylor’s rise in the Big 12 has, not coincidentally, been accompanied by the increased level of play from junior quarterback Robert Griffin III. Griffin came back from a 2009 knee injury to pass for a school-record 3,501 yards last year. He also accounted for 30 touchdowns (22 passing, eight rushing). Griffin has playmakers around him in the Bears’ offense, but there’s no doubt that he’s the centerpiece. Griffin is the conference’s most exciting player. If healthy for a full season, he is a Heisman Trophy candidate.

climbing onto the winner’s podium on the Champs-Elysees. “It’s been a pleasure and an honor to fly the flag over here.” The 34-year-old Evans, the oldest champion since before World War II, stood on the podium wrapped in his national flag, his eyes tearing up as he listened to the Australian national anthem. He then embraced Andy and Frank Schleck. The brothers from Luxembourg had pushed him all the way to the end, but were finally defeated by his solo strength in Saturday’s race against the clock. On the traditional Tour victory lap on Paris’ Champs-Elysees, champagne in hand, Evans seemed to stop to celebrate with just about every fan bearing an Australian flag. As he clambered into his BMC

team bus, hundreds of people shouted praise, one yelling, “Cadel, we love you!” and others chanting “Aussie, Aussie, Aussie — Oy, Oy, Oy!” This was a very different Tour from the ones of the recent past that have been dominated by a single rider — Lance Armstrong or Contador. At least seven riders could have won it with only a few days remaining. Contador, who is fighting a legal battle to hold on to last year’s victory after a positive drug test, faded away in the final stages and finished fifth. On Sunday’s largely ceremonial ride to Paris, Contador smiled and chatted with Evans, even patting the Australian on the back. Afterward, the three-time Tour champion said he told Evans “he was the strongest rider, and it’s normal that he won.”

Alomar, Blyleven, Gillick enter baseball HOF COOPERSTOWN, N.Y. — Roberto Alomar stared at the adoring crowd and was nearly rendered speechless, the tawdry episode of his stellar career long since forgotten. Bert Blyleven was more composed but moved nonetheless as he stared at his 85-year-old mother and reminisced about his late father. Both men were inducted Sunday into the Baseball Hall of Fame along with front-office guru Pat Gillick. Speaking first in his native Spanish, Alomar, the third Puerto Rican player to be enshrined, along with Orlando Cepeda and Roberto Clemente, said he felt proud to be a Puerto Rican. “I always played for my island,” Alomar said, dozens of Puerto Rican flags blowing in a gentle breeze on a sunny afternoon. “It is a true blessing to be able to share this moment with all of you. I have you in my heart. I am standing here today because of the fan support. “To my family, to my fans, to all the Puerto Rican people ... and the game of baseball, you are and will always be my life and my love.” The switch-hitting Alomar won a record 10 Gold Gloves at second base, was a 12-time AllStar and a career .300 hitter. Full of baseball smarts and grace, he’s also linked with one of the game’s most forgettable moments — he spit on umpire John Hirschbeck during an argument in 1996. The two have long since moved past that, and Hirschbeck was invited to come on Sunday. He had to decline because he’s working a game in St. Louis. Blyleven, the first Dutch-born player to be enshrined, thanked his parents for the drive and determination he needed to succeed. Drafted by Minnesota in the third round of the 1969 amateur draft, he became the youngest pitcher in the majors when the Twins called him up June 2, 1970, after just 21 minor-league starts. Blyleven, whose amazing curveball frustrated batters in his 22-year career, finished with 287 wins, 3,701 strikeouts, 60 shutouts and a pair of World Series rings — in 1979 with the Pittsburgh Pirates and 1987 in his second stint with the Twins.

GOLF Cochran holds on at Senior British WALTON ON THE HILL, ENGLAND — Russ Cochran won the Senior British Open by two shots Sunday, holding off the challenge of fellow Americans Mark Calcavecchia and the fast-finishing Tom Watson to capture his first major title. The 52-year-old Cochran claimed the winner’s check of $310,000 after making six birdies in a 5-under 67 in his final round at Walton Heath, closing at 12 under. The left-hander picked up all his shots in the first 10 holes, opening up a five-shot lead. He remained unruffled in the testing closing stretch despite a bogey on No. 14 that cut his advantage to two shots. Calcavecchia, who shared the overnight lead with Cochran and David Frost, was the runner-up. Watson was tied for third at 9 under.

Sparks wins Kansas Amateur LEAWOOD — Wichita State golfer Hunter Sparks beat Kansas State’s Kyle Smell, 2-and1, in the championship match of the Kansas Amateur Match Play Championship on Sunday at Hallbrook Country Club. “It means a lot, especially with my mom here … it’s the biggest tournament I’ve ever won,” said Sparks, a 20-year-old from Oklahoma City, Okla. Sparks battled Overland Park’s Smell to a draw through 33 holes in the finals, before a couple of errant tee shots cost the Wildcat senior. Sparks had a conceded birdie on Hallbrook’s par-4 16th hole (their 34th of the day) and then won No. 17 with a par to close out the match. Sparks, the 2010 Amateur medalist at Prairie Dunes Country Club in Hutchinson, was the third seed this year.

NBA Timberwolves to talk to Brown MINNEAPOLIS — After interviewing Rick Adelman and Don Nelson over the weekend, the Timberwolves intend to interview Larry Brown and possibly one or two others in this first phase to replace fired coach Kurt Rambis. When the Wolves will interview Brown, who has coached teams to both NBA and NCAA titles, is uncertain because of a recent death in his family, according to a league source with knowledge of the team’s search. League sources also told Yahoo! Sports that Brown has an interest in joining Doc Rivers’ Boston Celtics staff as an assistant coach, assuming Lawrence Frank accepts the Detroit Pistons’ head-coaching job.

NFL Players’ committee to meet today NEW YORK — A vote on a settlement to the lockout is what every NFL fan wants. Nobody is sure when that might happen. The players’ executive committee will meet today in Washington after lawyers worked through the weekend on issues that are holding up an agreement with the owners. Several people with knowledge of the meeting have told the Associated Press that no vote to recommend a deal is certain today. The people spoke on condition of anonymity because the players association has not revealed its plans.

SCOTT WARTMAN HITS FROM THE FAIRWAY on the first hole of the second round of the LAGA city tournament on Sunday at Lawrence Country Club. Wartman shot a two-day 160, 15 strokes behind open championship-flight winner Spencer Wilson.

LAGA CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1B

Roberts and talented golfer Tyler Cummins played in the Kansas Amateur this week and attended a friend’s wedding Sunday instead of playing in the tournament. “Without him, none of this could’ve been possible,” Wilson said, smiling.

He said he used to sit at his locker wondering whether he would be tapped on the shoulder and told to report to Maddon’s off ice for another trip to Triple-A Durham. “I’ll keep a lookout after every outing, but seven shutout innings never hurts your cause,” Cobb said. Cobb, a 2006 fourth-round pick, is unbeaten in his first seven major league starts, the first Rays pitcher to accomplish that. “This is why we went to a six-man (rotation),” Maddon said. “This is the exact reason. You can’t do it unless you have a pitcher that is that effective and big league-ready and Alex is. There’s no tapping on the shoulder.” When Cobb gave up two singles to leadoff the sixth and seventh innings, he quickly worked out of the jams. “No panic,” Maddon said. “He threw strikes, let the defense play. He made the hitters swing the bat, wasn’t walking people and getting into bad counts. That’s why he

How does our relaDear Nervous: Don doesn’t want you at the picnic because he wants to be with Lulu (assuming there actually is a picnic). You should insist on going with him. Whether this is an affair or just a flirtation, Don is showing appalling disregard for you. Out of respect for your marriage, he needs to stop all contact with Lulu immediately. Try not to bring the children into this mess. Your next step should be counseling. Tell Don the marriage is in serious trouble, and ask him to come with you. If he refuses, go without him and figure out what is best for you. Dear Annie: A few weeks ago, my older sister invited my children and me on a day trip. She also invited a bunch of other people and family members.

Documentary recalls mysteries of NY tragedy "There's Something Wrong With Aunt Diane" (8 p.m., HBO) recalls a local tragedy with universal implications and plumbs a mystery as deep and dark as the human heart. On July 26, 2009, a minivan speeding the wrong way on New York's busy Taconic Parkway collided with another vehicle, leaving eight people dead — one of the worst accidents in New York state history. The accident killed the driver of the minivan, Diane Schuler, 36; Schuler's daughter and three nieces; and three men in the other car. Schuler's son, Bryan, miraculously survived. The sensational coverage of the accident turned to vengeful hysteria when toxicology reports revealed high levels of alcohol and THC (marijuana) in Schuler's blood. One memorable tabloid headline screamed "Gin & Taconic." Schuler became a posthumous pariah. Her husband, family members, friends and co-workers did not recognize the monster portrayed in the press or the substance abuser who emerged from the autopsy. "Something Wrong" exhaustively examines the evidence and interviews eyewitnesses and acquaintances of Schuler, focusing on the sad and protracted efforts of her widower and sister-in-law to clear her name. We learn, slowly and painfully, that Diane Schuler was a woman who did not admit to physical or emotional pain, who was a perfectionist in the best and worst senses of the word and who was both the main provider and organizing force in her extended family. She was the kind of "superwoman" working mother who inspires envy in some and scorn in others. Just what made her drive off the highway, however, may never be known. The inner conflicts of a wife and mother have long been fodder for drama and melodrama, in works from "Madame Bovary" to "Desperate Housewives." This documentary does a credible job of handling its combustible and easily exploitable material until the very end, when it careens into tabloid territory, stripping its subject of the most basic level of privacy and dignity. This strange lurch toward the lurid lasts only seconds, but it taints the entire film and left me wondering about the motivations of its makers.

Tonight’s other highlights ● The 2010 documentary "Broad Street Bullies" (6 p.m., HBO) recalls the Philadelphia Flyers' Stanley Cup championship squads of the 1970s. ● Fifteen chefs compete on "Hell's Kitchen" (7 p.m., Fox). ● Only three remain on "The Bachelorette" (7 p.m., ABC). ● The prospect of a space voyage brings out a competitive streak on "Eureka" (7 p.m., Syfy). ● Only nine remain on "MasterChef" (8 p.m., Fox). ● Victims turn to clay on "Warehouse 13" (8 p.m., Syfy). ● A process server delivers murder on "The Closer" (8 p.m., TNT). ● "Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations" (8 p.m., Travel) visits Naples, Italy. ● A tsunami expert vanishes on "Hawaii Five-O" (9 p.m., CBS). ● Wrongly incarcerated on "Harry's Law" (9 p.m., NBC).

JACQUELINE BIGAR’S STARS For Monday, July 25: This year, an aura of confusion surrounds communication. You could be exhausted from having to clear up misunderstandings often. Learn techniques like echoing, confirming, etc. If you are single, your willingness to step up to the plate and assume responsibility catches someone's eye this year. If you are attached, the two of you will need to make time for each other, as work or another responsibility demands so much of your time.

Dear Annie: “Don” and I have been married for 43 years. I thought we had a good marriage, but my trust has been shaken recently. Don retired four years ago. He told me a former co-worker, “Lulu,” had emailed to ask to meet for lunch and catch up on the latest office gossip. It sounded pretty innocent to me, so I had no objection. Then my world turned upside down. Last week, I ran into another of Don’s ex-co-workers, who informed me that Don and Lulu had been having lunch together a few times a week for the past four years. He said their obvious attraction was well known at the office. Annie, Don never once mentioned these lunches to me. When I asked him point blank, he became quite upset and said there was nothing going on. I said I wanted the lunches and emails to end. He replied that he won’t initiate contact, but if Lulu emails him, he will respond. I find this unacceptable. Yesterday, Don said Lulu invited him to the office picnic. He plans to go, but said I shouldn’t attend because I’d be bored to tears. I told him if he attended this picnic without me, I would have to consider my next step. He thinks I’m bluffing. My best friend says I didn’t come down hard enough. She thinks I should move out and then tell our

Pirates down Cardinals in 10 The Associated Press

Pirates 4, Cardinals 3, 10 innings PITTSBURGH — Xavier Paul scored on Chase d’Arnaud’s sacrifice fly in the bottom of the 10th on Sunday. Paul legged out an infield hit with one out against St. Louis reliever Jason Motte (32), then stole second and advanced to third when catcher Gerald Laird’s throw rolled into center field. D’Arnaud lined to center, and the speedy Paul easily beat the throw from centerfielder Colby Rasmus as the Pirates snapped a three-game losing streak.

AMERICAN LEAGUE ROUNDUP

Red Sox keep Mariners reeling The Associated Press

Red Sox 12, Mariners 8 B O S T O N — Jarrod Saltalamacchia drove in four runs, Kevin Youkilis hit a two-run homer, and Boston extended the Mariners’ franchise-worst losing streak to 15 games on Sunday. Tim Wakefield (6-3) joined Roger Clemens as the only pitchers to strike out 2,000 batters with Boston and moved one win away from his 200th victory. But the 44-year-old knuckleballer left after giving up Brendan Ryan’s grand slam that cut the lead to 11-7 with one out in the seventh. Seattle
