Lawrence at disadvantage when it comes to redistricting By Scott Rothschild


TOPEKA — A unique provision in the Kansas Constitution puts Lawrence, and Manhattan for that matter, at a disadvantage in the process of redrawing boundaries for legislative districts. The reason? Lawrence and

Manhattan are home to large regents schools: Kansas University and Kansas State University, respectively. The Kansas Constitution and state law require that when the Legislature redraws state district boundaries, it exclude nonresident college students and nonresident military personnel.

It also must include resident college students and resident military personnel in the district of their permanent residence. So while Lawrence has a population of 87,643 people — as counted by the 2010 U.S. Census — it has a population of 75,731, according to the state-required adjustment that was conducted

by the Kansas Secretary of State’s office. That means there are 11,912 people living in Lawrence, who for district mapping purposes are considered living somewhere else even though they may be voting in Lawrence. Where students declare their permanent residence is unrelat-

Smart meter program delayed for six weeks By Christine Metz

Lawrence residents will have to wait a little longer for smart meters as Westar Energy continues to toil with the technology meant to support them. The schedule for deploying the smart meters has been pushed back six weeks to mid or late September, said Hal Jensen, director of Westar’s SmartStar program. When the program was announced in 2010, Westar had originally set late spring as the date to install more than 44,000 meters to all Westar customers in Lawrence. In May, the installation date was moved back to late July. “What we are finding, we didn’t allow enough time to work through all the testing and quality assurance and integration type of efforts that

Open house on outages, upgrades Westar Energy will hold an open house from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. today at Spring Hill Suites, 1 Riverfront Plaza. The event will focus on the upgrades Westar Energy is making at its had to happen,” Jensen said. The $39 million SmartStar program that will bring the meters to Lawrence also includes an upgrade in computer and software technology needed to support Westar’s entire customer base. And the technology is intended to integrate data so it can flow between the company departments, such as billing and customer service. When the meters are installed in Lawrence, Jensen said, the company wants to

The project, which costs more than $1 million, will replace eight cables from the substation and should improve the reliability of the system. make sure customers have access to the online information the next day. With the smart meters, customers will be able to go online and track their energy usage by the hour. The idea is that the information can help customers make better decisions on energy consumption. One day, the meter could provide the data needed to establish a new pricing structure in which energy is most expensive when demand is at its highest.

There are some folks in Lawrence who already have the smart meters. In bone-chilling temperatures last January, Westar began installing smart meters in a pilot project area of the Deerfield Neighborhood. By the beginning of June, customers in that neighborhood could go online and find detailed information on their energy usage. So far, Jensen said “there have been no issues with the meters” in the pilot project. However, Westar is still reading the meters manually for billing. As of now, Westar hasn’t determined what neighborhoods will be the next to get meters. But Jensen said he’s confident that by the end of the year the vast majority will be installed. — Reporter Christine Metz can be reached at 832-6352.

Douglas County’s top prosecutor says law enforcement has seen an increase in the past two years in the number of robberies of suspected drug dealers in Lawrence. “These crimes are very dangerous. You risk a chance of serious bodily harm and death every time one of these occurs,” District Attorney Charles Branson said. Branson called it a “dramatic rise” in these types of Branson crimes occurring in the city but said his office has had success in prosecuting the cases that become some of Lawrence’s more high-pro- Khatib f ile robberies because they often involve people being held at gunpoint and include other physical violence. Suspects believe they can steal money and drugs, usually from a low-level marijuana dealer, who likely won’t make a report to police to hide his own illegal activity. “When drugs are involved, there‘s usually either a large quantity of drugs or quantities of money,” said Lawrence Police Chief Tarik Khatib, who previously supervised a countywide drug-investigation unit. “Both things are commodities in the criminal world.”

Lawrence cases In several recent cases suspects were caught because the victims did call police — or the suspects were mistaken and robbed people who had nothing to do with dealing drugs. Prosecutors have been able to convict multiple people in six drug-related robbery cases since May 2010, including: ● Two former Kansas University football players, Vernon Brooks, 24, and Jamal Greene, 23, who received 60 days in jail and two years on probation for holding four Kansas University students, including two women, at gunpoint May 14, 2010, at Tuckaway Apartments, 2600 W. Sixth St. Prosecutors said they thought they could steal drugs and money from a back bedroom. ● Three Lawrence men, Joshua Self, 18, Christopher Self, and Douglas Bittinger, both 20, who received more than three years in prison for using a BB gun to rob two men at The Exchange, 3100 Ousdahl Road, because they thought the men had high-grade marijuana. One victim was knocked unconscious and another victim was also struck. ● Several people in connection Please see DEALERS, page 4A

By John Milburn Associated Press Writer

TOPEKA — Kansas Democrats raised concerns Wednesday about how the Republican-controlled Legislature will redraw the state’s political maps to solidify the GOP’s hold on the state’s four U.S. House seats. Senate Minority Leader Anthony Hensley, a Topeka Democrat, presented a map during public hearings Tuesday and Wednesday that would extend the 1st District from the Colorado line east to the Missouri border, taking in Atchison, Leavenworth and Wyandotte counties. Atchison and Leavenworth counties currently are in the 2nd District represented by Republican Lynn Jenkins, while Republican Rep. Kevin Yoder represents Wyandotte County in the 3rd District. “There will be all kinds of variations, but I felt compelled to discuss this map early on,” Hensley said. “If it’s not true, let (House Speaker) Mike O’Neal make me a liar.” Hensley said Republicans would be able to dilute the effect of Democratic votes in congressional elections for the next 10 years by keeping Shawnee, Douglas and Wyandotte counties in separate districts. Douglas is presently split between the 2nd and 3rd districts, with Shawnee and Topeka in the 2nd District. O’Neal, a Hutchinson Republican and chairman of the House committee, said Hensley’s concerns amount to

a “conspiracy theory.” O’Neal said moving Wyandotte County to the 1st District would be difficult to justify and that any speculation is a premature effort to make the process more partisan than necessary. “That’s a lot of geography involved. It’s all about maps that make sense and do not overtly politicize the situation,” he said. “There’s no need for that. Republicans are in the majority now and will be after.” O’Neal said the goal is to maintain the one person, one vote principle to stay within the numerical guidelines. Each congressional district is required to have an equal population, which means current boundaries will change to reflect the continued growth in Johnson County and declining populations in rural counties. “The 1st has to get bigger. The question is who has to give up area and how do they feel about that,” O’Neal said. Sen. Tim Owens, an Overland Park Republican and chairman of the Senate redistricting committee, said he had no intention of gerrymandering districts to benefit one party in the next elections. He likens the early sparring over potential maps to a roller derby, where competitors start bumping early in the event, eventually turning into a free-for-all rumble. “I’m not sure something like that would pass muster with the courts if it were challenged,” Owens said. States adjust their political Davis said. “Unfortunately, it will require a constitutional amendment.” That would require approval from two-thirds of the Legislature and approval by Kansas voters. The issue came up during the last round of redistricting, but that recount was not nearly as drastic as the new one. Lawrence lost 5 percent in the recount in 2001, compared with 13.6 percent under the new one. Davis said some complained 10 years ago that KU did not do enough to get students to declare where they wanted to be counted. This time, he said, KU was aggres-

boundaries every 10 years to reflect population changes based on the census. A provision in the Kansas Constitution also requires it to account for military personnel and students from other states attending college in Kansas. The secretary of state released revised figures earlier this week, showing the Kansas population at 2,839,445 residents, or 13,673 fewer than the Census figure released earlier in 2011. Most of those revisions affect Douglas, Riley and Geary counties, which are home to Kansas University, Kansas State University and Fort Riley’s 1st Infantry Division respectively. Legislators are holding public hearings around the state, gathering opinions about which areas should remain in certain political districts based on common economic, geographic and population traits. House Minority Leader Paul Davis of Lawrence said Wyandotte and Johnson counties share much more in common with each other and neighboring counties in Missouri that comprise the Kansas City metropolitan area. Aligning Kansas City, Kan., a manufacturing community with urban needs, with predominantly rural, agriculture counties in the 1st District, would make little sense, he said. “I hope people are going to reject these kinds of efforts to gerrymander these districts for political gains,” Davis said. sive about it — and more of them said they wanted to be counted in their hometowns. New boundaries for congressional, legislative and State Board of Education districts are currently being worked on by legislators and will be finalized during the 2012 legislative session before undergoing judicial scrutiny.

“That is what I’m focused on. We are looking at what we can and what we need to do to really cut down on and anticipate far fewer dollars, because that is what will actually happen to the states,” Brownback said. “The bonds will get paid first because it will be a higher priority by the government, but they will then stop making transfer payments to the states.” The governor also says his office is not planning for across-the-board program cuts because the federally funded programs that would be cut will be determined in Washington. “But we may look at saying, ‘OK, we want to backfill this piece of this program because it is critically important to us, but there are others that we just don’t have the resources,”’ Brownback said. “And we don’t have resources as a state to do a complete backfill at the federal level — it is a far larger number than we can possibly reach.” The governor didn’t specify which state services he thought would the most vulnerable in the event of the loss of federal monies. Kansas Senate Majority Leader Jay Emler, a Lindsborg Republican, said his contacts with officials in various state agencies over the past month indicate that they’re drafting proposals to deal with cuts of up to 50 percent in their federal funds in the future. The Kansas Department of

Transportation, which has relied on bonds to finance highway projects, doesn’t expect to see a short-term effect on its borrowing. Spokesman Steve Swartz noted that KDOT issued $350 million in bonds in September 2010, with an interest rate of just under 3 percent, and doesn’t anticipate having to issue more bonds for another year. Deputy Secretary Jerry Younger said KDOT doesn’t expect to stop or slow down highway projects currently under construction. However, he said, it might have to reconsider whether to commit immediately to projects that have been planned but not started. At the state Department of Social and Rehabilitation Services, officials are considering whether they’ll have to draw down some of their federal funds in advance. Spokeswoman Angela de Rocha said SRS normally draws those dollars down daily, as needed. The state Department of Education expects to distribute about $7 million in funds on Monday, said Deputy Commissioner Dale Dennis. The state probably can cover other small payments normally made from federal funds during the first 10 days of August, he said. But, he added, the department distributes federal funds each month and, “If it isn’t solved by the end of August, we’re in trouble.”

County OKs parcel annexation by city

Hangin’ on a hot day 1 | NORWAY

Prime minister: Make country more open Norway will never be the same after last week’s bombing and mass shooting but it shouldn’t change the way the suspect wants it to, the prime minister said Wednesday. He called on his country to react by more tightly embracing, rather than abandoning, the culture of tolerance that Anders Behring Breivik said he was trying to destroy. “The Norwegian response to violence is more democracy, more openness and greater political participation,” Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg insisted at a news conference. Friday’s bombing outside Stoltenberg’s offices in Oslo and the shooting that followed at a camp organized by the youth wing of his Labor Party killed 76 people and battered the psyche of a nation that prides itself on openness. Breivik confessed but has pleaded not guilty, claiming the attacks were necessary to fight what he called Muslim colonization and multiculturalism.

Charmin ‘Squeeze’ campaign creator dies John Chervokas, an advertising man and wordsmith who was credited with introducing a toilet paper slogan into popular culture with his “Please Don’t Squeeze the Charmin” campaign, has died at age 74. Chervokas, who lived in Briarcliff Manor, died Saturday of a stroke at a Manhattan hospital, said his son, journalist Jason Chervokas. He had battled Parkinson’s disease for five years. Chervokas was a junior copywriter at Benton & Bowles in 1964 when, he said, the image of housewives squeezing fruit in a supermarket inspired the toilet tissue campaign. “What does mom do in the super-market? She squeezes the melons,” he wrote years later in Advertising Age. “And the tomatoes. And the bread. To see if they’re soft. ... Why not use the same test for Charmin?”

Douglas County commissioners Wednesday reached a 2-1 decision to move forward with a plan to annex about 67 acres of property at the northwestern edge of Lawrence into the city. The issue, which garnered a good deal of public opinion one week ago, was whether the annexation and probable rezoning of the land for industrial use would hinder the proper growth and development of the area. Commissioners Mike Gaughan and Jim Flory both voted in favor of the plan while Commissioner Nancy Thellman was opposed. “I’m not convinced this property needs to be annexed into the city to be marketable,” Thellman said, visibly disappointed by the decision. “I think these neighbors have reason to be concerned.” Thellman voiced her own concerns that the move to annex the property may be premature, as an interim plan for land use from the city contains no promises of city services. The decision follows in the footsteps of others from the past several years, the most recent of which passed 2-1 last year, with Thellman alone in opposition. That decision concerned more than 50 acres directly east of the current property being considered. Concerns regarding drainage issues and other developmental hurdles were addressed by the commissioners in favor, who said those items were related to pre-development and not pre-annexation. The land, which sits between the Kansas Turnpike and the Farmers’ Turnpike just east of the Kansas Turnpike’s Lecompton interchange, has already been identified for industrial uses in a sector plan in Horizon 2020. The commission approved drafting a resolution consistent with the commissioners’ majority decision. — Reporter Joe Preiner can be reached at 832-6314.

with two incidents on backto-back nights last December at a Louisiana Street apartment. In court documents, prosecutors accuse three Wichita men, who have not yet been convicted, of acting under the recruitment and direction of Michael Hammond, 20, who wanted to rob someone in the building believed to be a drug dealer. But the suspects burst into the wrong apartment on Dec. 2 and held three female KU students at gunpoint. Hammond eventually pleaded no contest to two conspiracy counts after prosecutors accused him and three friends of trying to take the job into their own hands the next night. Police foiled that attempt.

Prevention Branson said most victims in the recent cases are typically younger, college-age people who begin selling drugs on a small scale. “These cases just run such a high risk of personal injury and bodily harm for these folks — all over supporting their own habit or trying to make a few extra bucks,” he said. Prosecutors typically have to offer immunity to victims in the case on drug charges related to the robbery incident, although they can prosecute them for anything that occurred before or after, Branson said. Also, the victims might contaminate a crime scene in their efforts to hide certain things, Khatib said. Prosecutors and police in these cases want to target the robbery suspects because they have the potential to turn deadly. Kellam D. Jones, 20, of Lawrence, is serving a 14-year sentence for his role in a June 2008 double homicide in the 1300 block of Delaware Street.


LAW ENFORCEMENT REPORT • A 37-year-old Lawrence man reported to Lawrence police July 18 that someone had stolen a 2005 Chevrolet pickup truck at 6 a.m. that day from the 200 block of Elm Street in North Lawrence. • A 37-year-old Lawrence man reported to police that someone had stolen two Kenmore refrigerators and a wine refrigerator in total valued at $1,700 on July 24 from the 3300 block of Ranier Drive.

The Journal-World does not print accounts of all police reports filed. The newspaper generally reports: • Burglaries, only with a loss of $1,000 or more, unless there are unusual circumstances. To protect victims, we generally don’t identify them by name. • The names and circumstances of people arrested, only after they are charged. • Assaults and batteries, only if major injuries are reported. • Holdups and robberies.

Jones and his friend, Gage Hauk, 18, of McLouth, had attempted to rob 20-year-old Roland Klundt at his home of drugs and money. Branson said Klundt had armed himself after a burglary a week earlier, so Klundt shot and killed Hauk who was armed with an air pistol, and Jones then shot and killed Klundt with a semi-automatic rifle. Khatib said dealers who are robbed should call police because they could be helping another future victim, including themselves. “Anybody who has the ability to go in and rob someone at gunpoint also has the ability to do something else as well,” he said. Two men, Timothy Hays and Louis Galloway Jr., were shot in August 2009 while trying to rob a suspected drug dealer at Easy Living Mobile Home Park, 3323 Iowa. Prosecutors charged both Galloway and Hays, who recovered from their injuries, but they had to drop the case later when the robbery victim refused to testify. Both Galloway and Hays are now serving prison sentences for subsequent crimes. Hays robbed the KU Credit Union, 3400 W. Sixth St., and received a federal prison sentence. Galloway, 21, last week received more than five years in prison for punching and injuring a Lawrence officer during a February car stop. Branson said his off ice works to prosecute drug sale and distribution cases apart from these robberies, but prosecutors also work to get the word out about other consequences for dealing drugs. “They have to understand that if they’re going to participate in illegal drug activity, that it’s inherently dangerous,” he said. “And there is a good likelihood they will be the target of a violent crime.” — Reporter George Diepenbrock can be reached at 832-7144.

Woman pleads guilty in robbery scheme

Cindy Fritschen, dental assistant, Lawrence “I would say around 65.”

Joe Fritschen, seventh-grader, Lawrence “Probably 70.”

A 21-year-old woman pleaded guilty on Wednesday morning to three misdemeanor counts in connection with a December burglary near the Kansas University campus. Shelby Sprauer pleaded guilty to two counts of criminal restraint and one count of conspiracy to commit criminal restraint. District Judge Kay Huff sentenced her to serve one year on probation and 28 days in the Douglas County Jail. Prosecutors accused Sprauer of participating in a Dec. 3 scheme with three other people to rob an apartment resident in the 1100 block of Louisiana Street. She initially was charged with conspiracy to commit burglary

and aggravated burglary. Huff declared a mistrial June 1 because Sprauer’s defense attorney, Tom Bath, asked for more time to review phone records that Lawrence police detectives had collected. Three other co-defendants have entered pleas in the case. Kyle Peterson, 21, received a two-year probation term last week, and Kayla Kling, 20, and Michael Hammond, 21, will be sentenced in August. Prosecutors accuse Hammond of recruiting three Wichita men one night earlier to rob the same target — a suspected drug dealer — in the same apartment building, but the suspects burst into the wrong apartment. The Wichita men’s robbery cases are pending.

Brownback taps economic advisers group By Roxana Hegeman Associated Press Writer

WICHITA — A group of economic advisers assembled by Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback will operate as a board of directors for economic development in the state, the Republican said during a news conference Wednesday. Brownback signed an executive order in Wichita establishing the council, which he will chair. “The economic future of Kansas depends on the growth of existing businesses and the development of new industries,” Brownback said. “Economic competitiveness requires a detailed understanding of regional, national and international conditions and trends.” The governor said the group will work closely with him to assure strategy integration, coordination and accountability across all of the state’s economic development entities and agencies. Those would include the ones for commerce, agriculture, transportation, revenue, labor and the Bioscience Authority, he said. The council will be asked

to coordinate strategic planning and economic development. It also is expected to evaluate state policies and agency performance as well as conduct research on topics such as tax competitiveness and regulations. Brownback said his new council is the successor to Kansas Inc., an independent economic development research agency that was abolished in the reorganization after he took off ice. Unlike Kansas Inc., the new economic council will work in conjunction with the administration rather than separately from it. The former independent group did good economic work, but nobody picked it up, Brownback said. The council will put socalled benchmarks for the various entities it oversees. It will have up to 20 members from the various industries in the state. Brownback announced the first 16 members at a news conference: Patti Bossert, Key Staffing, Topeka; Ivan Crossland, Crossland Construction, Columbus; Jody Horner, Cargill Meat Solutions, Wichita; Cliff Illig, Cerner,

Kansas City, Mo.; Garry O’Shaunghnessay, Lario Enterprises, Wichita; Larry Jones, J O Cattle Co., Holcomb; Patty Koehler, JR Custom Metals, Wichita; Jim Lewis, Lewis Automotive Group, Hays; and Jan Lyons, National Cattlemen’s Beef Association, Manhattan. Also named to the council were David Murfin, Murfin Drilling, Wichita; Steve Ortiz, Prairie Band Potawatomi Nation, Mayetta; Bob Page, Kansas University Medical Center; Larry Sevier, NexTech Wireless, Lenora; Dan Tasset, Nueterra, Leawood; Bob Wheeler, Hills Pet Nutrition; and Jeff Turner, Spirit AeroSystems, Wichita.

Early retirement options on the table By Scott Rothschild

TOPEKA — State officials are considering an early retirement incentive proposal for state employees. The Kansas Organization of State Employees is surveying its members to get feedback regarding any early retirement incentive. Jane Carter, executive director of KOSE, said Wednesday that rules stipu-

late that negotiations with the state are closed. “There is not an agreement yet, so I cannot comment on support or disagreement. When we have a tentative agreement and the members ratify the agreement, then I can comment,” she said. The governor’s office has not responded to questions about an early retirement plan. Early retirement plans are usually established to reduce

payroll. Typically they offer incentives to older, more highly paid employees to retire. Those incentives could include one-time bonuses or extension of health insurance coverage. The Kansas Legislative Division of Post Audit is studying whether offering an early retirement incentive program would save state government any money. Kansas spent nearly $2.5 bil-

lion in 2010 on state employee salaries and fringe benefits, according to a statement by Post Audit. — Statehouse reporter Scott Rothschild can be reached at 785-423-0668.

A unanimous decision by Douglas County commissioners Wednesday will authorize the execution of an offer to purchase land for the future home of a P ublic Works facility. The property acquisition, which could eventually open the door for the Lawrence Community Shelter to relocate near the Douglas County Jail, 3601 E. 25th St., will provide the county with approximately 34 acres for new facilities. The county plan also includes offers to purchase two pieces of property adjacent to the proposed future public works location. The few residents who attended Wednesday night’s meeting and spoke their

minds held varying opinions of the proposed move, voicing concerns for children in the area and potential future zoning restrictions as well as lauding the commission for its planning and direction. Commissioner Jim Flory said the commission’s main goal with plans to purchase the land was to aid public works, disCOUNTY cussions for COMMISSION which began more than a year ago. “I felt convinced and comfortable that it was an offer to extend the complex out there in a meaningful way,” Flory said. Resident Greg Robinson said he felt the decisions regarding the land acquisi-

tion and its relation to the future of the homeless shelter had been made behind closed doors. “I’m dismayed by this, quite frankly,” he said. Flory reminded those in attendance that the county’s plan to purchase the land does not guarantee the shelter will be able to relocate, as it still has its own hoops to jump through, including negotiating a contract for the purchase of its property. The county also does not assume ownership, financial or management responsibility for the shelter. The issue will be brought back before the county commission if or when a contract for purchase of the public works property is reached.

SW Kansas to grow biofuel crops By Christine Metz

More than 20,000 acres in southwest Kansas and a small piece of Oklahoma will be set aside for growing crops that will be turned into biofuels. Kansas was among the six states the U.S. Department of Agriculture named in the latest round of Biomass Crop Assistance Program projects. The four projects announced Tuesday total more than $45 million and are intended to create 3,400 jobs and produce more than 2 million gallons of biofuels annually. In Kansas and Oklahoma, 20,000 acres of switchgrass will be grown around a biomass conversion facility in Hugoton, which is in the southwest corner of Kansas.

The plant is owned by Abengoa Biofuels. For farmers who volunteer to enroll in the program, the contract with the USDA would cover 75 percent of startup costs and five years of annual maintenance payments. The facility will be operating in 2013, according to an Abengoa news release. The company plans to begin harvesting biomass in the fall of this year. The plant will be able to convert 315,000 dry tons of crops into 25 million gallons of ethanol and generate 25 megawatts of electricity. The Biomass Crop Assistance Program was part of the 2008 Farm Bill and is intended to reduce the country’s reliance on foreign oil,

improve domestic security, reduce carbon pollution and spur economic development and job growth in rural areas. Earlier this year, Kansas and Missouri were part of the first project area for the Biomass Crop Assistance Program. In that project, farmers are being asked to grow native grasses, forbs and legumes on 50,000 acres in western Missouri and eastern Kansas. Douglas County is among the 39 counties in the two-state region where farmers would be eligible for the program. Once harvested, those plants can be sold to any qualified biomass conversion facility. — Reporter Christine Metz can be reached at 832-6352.

available in the Wichita metropolitan area. The company Ethanol Products will partner with QuikTrip to convert all of the Wichita area’s 38 QuikTrip retail gas stations so they can carry ethanol gasoline for flex-fuel vehicles. These vehicles can run on gasoline or a blend of up to 85 percent ethanol. Next year, 50 percent of Chrysler, Ford and GM’s models will be flex-fuel vehicles, according to the application.


students often hang out there. Bendapudi has a few other issues to tackle, too. She said she’ll be continuing to work on raising funds for a new building for the school. KU is preparing for a public launch of a new fundraising campaign, and the provost and chancellor have backed the effort, she said. A potential site for the building has been identified northeast of the Chi Omega Fountain, near Potter Lake and Carruth-O’Leary Hall. “I want the building to be a reflection of the greatness that’s already here,” she said. Still, it’s not the walls that

The project has the potential of displacing 15 million gallons of gasoline. The governor’s administration directed the Kansas Corporation Commission to work with the Department of Commerce to find ways to reallocate the money when it became clear that the Efficiency Kansas program wasn’t going to spend the full amount of stimulus money by the DOE’s April 1 deadline. As for the Eff iciency Kansas program, KCC spokeswoman Cara SloanRamos said the Kansas Energy Office has been working around the clock to process the loan applications that

have come in since home energy auditors were notified about the redirection of funds last week. Despite repeated requests, the KCC, which oversees the Kansas Energy Office, has yet to release the number of loan applications that have been submitted since the announcement or how much money is left in the program. Sloan-Ramos said the office continues to look for other funding alternatives to support the loan program, and the $100 home energy audit program will remain in place.

make a place, she said, and the school will continue to move forward. During her first few days on campus, she’s been meeting with professors and staff members and using Twitter to send out updates on the professors’ research and other projects. It’s a way to combat an old joke about being a professor, she said. Someone asks about the three best things about being a professor. “June, July and August,” she answered, adding that she hoped to dispel that perception as much as possible. She’s also met with people outside the school, taking time to eat lunch with all the assistants to deans across the Lawrence campus, who meet a few times a year. There, attendees of the

lunch said, she spent an hour with the group, and was interested in both their personal lives and advice she could pick up from how their respective deans did business. “She really, sincerely wanted our input,” said Anne Sawyer, assistant to the dean of the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. “She was very open and approachable. I think the business school has just scored a coup.” Bendapudi said she’s eager for the full complement of students to arrive next month. “I feel like I’m ready to throw a party and I’m waiting for my guests to arrive,” she said.

Somali militants block famine refugees from aid By Jason Straziuso Associated Press Writer

MOGADISHU, SOMALIA — In a squalid refugee camp beside Mogadishu’s airport, some 2,000 desperately hungry women and children await help, many of them weak and dying in tents made of sticks and cloth. Missing from the camp, however, are large numbers of Somali men. The militants of al-Shabab are trying to stop men from joining the tens of thousands of people who are fleeing the parched regions of southcentral Somalia that the fighters control, refugees told The Associated Press. In many cases, the alQaida-linked militants are succeeding in intercepting the men, with some even being killed by the Islamists, the witnesses said Wednesday. The devastating famine in the Horn of Africa threatens al-Shabab’s hold on areas under its control, with the militants fearing that the disaster will drive away the people they tax and conscript into military service. “They’re godless. They have no heart. They want people to die of hunger,” said one refugee, Fatima Mohammed, who traveled to the impromptu camp near the airport with five children but had to leave two weaker ones with her husband. She told the AP that she and her family tried to walk at night to avoid al-Shabab checkpoints.

FARHIYA ABDULKADIR, 5, from southern Somalia and suffering from malnutrition, lies on a bed Wednesday at Banadir hospital in Mogadishu, Somalia. More than 11 million people are estimated to need help in East Africa’s worst drought in 60 years, in Kenya, Ethiopia, Somalia, Eritrea and South Sudan. In the past, the militants have blocked aid workers from helping those in need in Somalia, fearing that foreign assistance would undermine their control. Mohammed said the militants even told the refugees: “It’s better to die of hunger than to accept the West.” There are indications, however, that the militant leaders are bickering about whether to let aid in during the latest crisis. A Somali official says 50 al-Shabab fighters have defected and joined the government in recent weeks. A force of African Union peacekeepers is based down the road from the airport refugee camp. They have delivered water to those

inside the camp, which has no toilets, and have treated more than 50 cases of measles. A World Food Program plane with 10 tons of peanutbutter paste landed Wednesday in Mogadishu, the first of several planned airlifts in coming weeks. That will help, but Lt. Col. Kuamurari Katwekyeire, the civil-military coordination chief for the African Union Mission in Somalia, known as AMISOM, said the U.N. and other aid groups need to do more. Those efforts by the AMISOM troops are helping to win over Somalis and counter the al-Shabab message, although there are no aid groups working inside the camp. The refugees have no

way to get food, and many lie motionless inside the flimsy tents, too thin and weak to move. One young child waved briefly at a reporter but soon lay his fly-covered head back down. Older, stick-thin refugees appeared on the edge of death. Camp resident Hassan Ibrahim said one of his grandchildren — a 4-year-old girl — died and was one of 12 children buried Wednesday in the camp. Ibrahim, 52, is one of the few men at the camp. He said he was one of the first arrivals from the famine-hit Bakool region, but that only days after he left, al-Shabab fighters arrested hundreds of men, beat them and forced them to stay behind. At another refugee camp in Mogadishu, Ambiyo Isee said she fled the Bay region when her 50 goats died. She walked four days with three malnourished children and ended up in an al-Shabab-run refugee camp. She eventually fled toward Mogadishu. “Al-Shabab forced us to either go back to our homes we left because of hunger or to stay in a fenced-in and empty camp,” Isee said. “There was no food or water and the place was thorny, with small insects that gave our children rashes. ... In Mogadishu we get a little food, but it’s rare and not enough. And our children are unfed. No one notices our pathetic condition.”

Rural U.S. disappearing? Population share hits low By Hope Yen

Kansas University this month opened a new medical Associated Press Writer school with a class of eight in Salina, a regional hub WASHINGTON — Rural Amer- of nearly 50,000 people, in hopes of supporting ica now accounts for just 16 nearby rural communities that have no doctors at all. percent of the nation’s population, the lowest ever. The latest 2010 census numbers hint at an emerging America where, by midcentury, city boundaries become indistinct and rural areas grow ever less relevant. Many communities could shrink to virtual ghost towns as they shutter businesses and close down schools, demographers say. More metro areas are booming into sprawling megalopolises. Barring fresh investment that could bring jobs, however, large swaths of the Great Plains and Appalachia, along with parts of Arkansas, Mississippi and North Texas, could face significant population declines. These places posted some of the biggest losses over the past decade as young adults left and the people who stayed got older, moving past childbearing years. For instance in West Virginia, now with a median age of 41.3, the share of Americans 65 and older is now

nearly double that of young adults 18-24 — 16 percent compared to 9 percent, according to census figures released Thursday. In 1970, the shares of the two groups were roughly equal at 12 percent. “This place ain’t dead yet, but it’s got about half a foot in the grave,” said Bob Frees, 61, of Moundsville, W.Va., which now has a population of just over 9,000. “The big-money jobs are all gone. We used to have the big mills and the rolling plants and stuff like that, and you could walk out of high school when you were 16 or 17 and get a $15-an-hour job.” Demographers put it a bit more formally. “Some of the most isolated rural areas face a major uphill battle, with a broad area of the country emptying out,” said Mark Mather, associate vice president of the Population Reference Bureau, a research group in Washing-

ton, D.C. “Many rural areas can’t attract workers because there aren’t any jobs, and businesses won’t relocate there because there aren’t enough qualified workers. So they are caught in a downward spiral.” Rural towns are scrambling to attract new residents and stave off heavy funding cuts from f inancially strapped federal and state governments. Delta Air Lines recently announced it would end flight service to 24 small airports, several of them in the Great Plains, and the U.S. Postal Service is mulling plans to close thousands of branches in mostly rural areas of the country. Kansas University this month opened a new medical school with a class of eight in Salina, a regional hub of nearly 50,000 people, in hopes of supporting nearby rural communities that have no doctors at all.

In North Dakota, colleges are seeking to draw in young adults by charging low tuition and fees. It’s part of a broader trend in which many slow-growing rural states are touting recreational scenic landscapes or extending tuition breaks to out-of-state residents who typically are charged more. Many rural areas, the Great Plains in particular, have been steadily losing population since the 1930s with few signs of the trend slowing in coming decades, according to census figures. The share of people in rural areas over the past decade fell to 16 percent, passing the previous low of 20 percent in 2000. The rural share is expected to drop further as the U.S. population balloons from 309 million to 400 million by midcentury, leading people to crowd cities and suburbs and fill in the open spaces around them. In 1910, the population share of rural America was 72 percent. Such areas remained home to a majority of Americans until 1950, amid postWorld War II economic expansion and the baby boom.

BRIEFLY Armed man reason for I-70 closure The Kansas Highway Patrol closed Interstate 70 west of Topeka on Wednesday until they took into custody a man who had barricaded himself in a vehicle. The highway was closed about seven hours. Wednesday was the second day this week that law officers detoured traffic around a 25mile stretch of I-70 west of Topeka. The highway was closed from Auburn Road in Shawnee County west to Kansas Highway 99 in Wabaunsee County, said Kim Qualls, a Kansas Department of Transportation spokeswoman. A highway patrol spokesman said an armed man, 45-year-old Paul R. Berry of Canton, Mich., had barricaded himself inside a motor home near Maple Hill, said he had a weapon and made suicidal threats after a traffic stop for driving erratically a little after 8 a.m. Troopers forcibly entered the mobile home around 3:30 p.m. and arrested Berry, who was combative, suffered minor injuries and was taken to a Topeka hospital, a KHP spokesman said. Troopers also recovered a weapon in the RV.

On Monday, the same portion of I-70 was closed for nine hours due to a bomb threat at a Junction City hotel and a subsequent investigation of a vehicle on the highway. Federal and state officials didn’t find any explosives on Monday, and an Arkansas man was arrested.

Lawrence safe centers receive grants Gov. Sam Brownback recently announced more than $5.7 million in state and federal funding for agencies that help victims of crime, child abuse, domestic violence and sexual assault. Among the recipients were two Lawrence safe centers: ● The Willow Domestic Violence Center — $210,297. ● GaDuGi SafeCenter — $43,647. These funds are used as matching funds for federal formula grant requirements to support sexual and domestic violence services and to enhance services to underserved areas of the state. The Willow Center also received a $56,687 grant through the Federal Family Violence Prevention and Services Act Grant Program. The program pays for support group activities for women

and children, child care, prevention education in schools and communities, information and referral services, advocacy in obtaining protection from abuse and stalking orders, court accompaniment and outreach into rural counties.

South student’s team 4th at international bee Stefan Petrovic and his fellow teammates representing the United States tied for fourth place at the National Geographic World Championship, an international geography bee in San Francisco. Petrovic, who will be an eighth-grader at South Middle School, and two others equaled Australia’s combined score of 96 points during early rounds of the three-day competition, which ended Wednesday at Google’s world headquarters in Mountain View, Calif. Petrovic said he was proud to represent the United States, but sad his team just missed the finals — a disappointment he attributed to the team having “overthought” bar graphs and charts on a written exam regarding urbanization and city growth rates. “That’s the danger of knowing a lot,” he said, with a laugh. In Wednesday’s finals, Russia finished first, followed by

Canada and Chinese Taipei. The competition drew 17 teams from around the world. Petrovic was chosen for the U.S. team after finishing third and winning a $10,000 college scholarship in the National Geographic Bee, a competition that started with more than 5 million students. Petrovic, whose parents are Uros and Zina Petrovic, had finished fourth in the national bee a year earlier.

Scientists: It’s not a bird, not a plane; it’s a dino By Malcolm Ritter Associated Press Writer

N E W Y O R K — One of the world’s most famous fossil creatures, widely considered the earliest known bird, is getting a rude present on the 150th birthday of its discovery: A new analysis suggests it isn’t a bird at all. Chinese scientists are proposing a change to the evolutionary family tree that boots Archaeopteryx off the “bird” branch and onto a closely related branch of birdlike dinosaurs. Archaeopteryx (ahr-keeAHP’-teh-rihx) was a crowsized creature that lived about 150 million years ago. It had wings and feathers, but also quite un-birdlike traits like teeth and a bony tail. Discovered in 1861 in Germany, two years after Charles Darwin published “On the Origin of Species,” it quickly became an icon for evolution and has remained popular since. The Chinese scientists acknowledge they have only weak evidence to support their proposal, which hinges on including a newly recognized dinosaur. Other experts say the change could easily be reversed by further discoveries. And while it might shake scientif ic understanding within the bird lineage, they said, it doesn’t make much difference for some other evolutionary questions. Archaeopteryx dwells in a section of the family tree that’s been reshuffled repeat-

Artist’s rendering released by the journal Nature edly over the past 15 or 20 years and still remains murky. It contains the small, twolegged dinosaurs that took the first steps toward flight. Fossil discoveries have blurred the distinction between dinosaurlike birds and birdlike dinosaurs, with traits such as feathers and wishbones no longer seen as reliable guides. “Birds have been so embedded within this group of small dinosaurs … it’s very difficult to tell who is who,” said Lawrence Witmer of Ohio University, who studies early bird evolution but didn’t participate in the new study. The proposed reclassification of Archaeopteryx wouldn’t change the idea that birds arose from this part of the tree, he said, but it could make scientists reevaluate what they think about evolution within the bird lineage itself. “Much of what we’ve known about the early evolution of birds has in a sense been f iltered through Archaeopteryx,” Witmer said. “Archaeopteryx has been the touchstone. … (Now) the centerpiece for many of those hypotheses may or may not be part of that lineage.”

The government takes on debt stability to our financial markets.” two ways: It borrows money from investors by issuing Treasury bonds, and it borrows from itself, mostly from the Social Security trust fund, which comes from payroll taxes. Congress created the debt limit in 1917. It’s unique to the United States. Most countries let their debts rise automatically when government spending outpaces Dow Industrials tax revenue. Congress has —198.75, 12,302.55 increased the debt limit 10 Nasdaq times since 2001.

Q: What is the federal deficit, and how does it differ from the debt? A: The deficit is how much government spending exceeds tax revenue during a year. Last year, the deficit was $1.29 trillion. The debt is the sum of deficits past and present. Right now, the national debt totals $14.3 trillion — a ceiling set in 2010. Q: Why is the prospect of not raising the debt ceiling so worrisome? A: The government now borrows more than 40 cents of each dollar it spends. If the debt ceiling does not rise, the government would need to choose what to pay and what not, including benefits like Social Security, wages for the military or other bills. It also might delay interest payments on Treasury bonds. Any default could lead to financial panic weakening the country’s credit rating, the dollar and the already hobbled economy. Interest rates would likely rise, increasing the cost of borrowing for the government and ordinary Americans.

Anxiety about a deadline to raise the nation’s debt ceiling swept across Wall Street on Wednesday and drove the Dow Jones industrial average down almost 200 points. With Washington showing no sign it will find a solution, financial planners around the country said their clients were increasingly worried. The Dow took a sharp drop during the last two hours of trading and closed down for the fourth session in a row. The declines have grown each day. The market turmoil was a sign that consequences of the debt fight were beginning to materialize in earnest. With six days to go until the Treasury Department’s Tuesday deadline — raise the national borrowing limit or face an unprecedented federal default and unpredictable fallout in the economy — analysts suggested the market would only grow more volatile. “The longer we go without any type of hope or concrete plans for resolution, the more concerned investors are going to become,” said Channing Smith, a managing director at the financial firm Capital Advisors Inc. While no one was panicking, financial professionals who handle the investment accounts of everyday Americans — college funds, retirement accounts and other nesteggs — said their customers were growing more worried by the day. One said he had not seen this level of anxiety since the 2008 financial crisis. “We’re getting a ton of calls,” said Bob Glovsky, president of Mintz Levin Financial Advisors in Boston. “It’s all ‘What happens if the U.S. defaults? What’s going to happen to me?”’ The Dow finished the day down 198.75 points, at 12,302.55. About half of the decline came between 2 and 4 p.m., when the market closes for the day. It was the worst fall for the Dow since June 1, with 28 of the 30 component stocks losing value.

While the decline was not close to the stomach-churning days of the fall of 2008, when the Dow lurched lower and higher by 700 points some days, there were signs that fear on Wall Street was growing. The Dow fell 43 points Friday, 88 points Monday and 91 points Tuesday, then more than twice that on Wednesday. “Right now the clouds are gathering,” said Chris Long, a financial planner in Chicago. Without a deal by Tuesday, the Obama administration has said the government will be unable to pay all its bills, and could miss checks to Social Security recipients, veterans and others who depend on public help. In addition, credit rating agencies could downgrade their assessment of the government’s f inances, further unnerving financial markets and perhaps causing interest rates to rise for everyone. Already, some investors are taking precautions. Richard Shortt, 66, of Somerville, Mass., worries that a default, or even just a downgrade of U.S. debt, could cause bond and stock markets to tumble. Last week he sold about 10 percent of his stock holdings and put the proceeds into a money-market mutual fund. “It might just be a short-term decline in the markets, but it could last a week or two while this gets resolved,” said Shortt, a semi-retired small business consultant. “If we do get any sort of debt downgrade, even if we avoid a default, that will change the game a bit.” Financial advisers typically tell their clients not to tinker with their portfolios or try to play a short-term move in the market to their advantage. Of course, leaving investments alone could be a test of patience for the rest of this week. Investors who rode out the financial turbulence in 2008 without rejiggering their portfolios have made up most of their losses. The stock market has almost doubled since its post-meltdown low in March 2009.

KANSAS CITY , M O. — States are bracing for plummeting high school graduation rates as districts nationwide dump flawed measurement formulas that often undercounted dropouts and produced inflated results. Education wonks long have suspected the statistics used by some people to determine how their neighborhood high school is faring — or even where to buy a house — can be figured using various formulas that produce wildly different results. Now, many states are facing a sobering reset: Some could see numbers fall by as many as 20 percentage points. Liz Utrup, a spokeswoman for the U.S. Education Department, said graduation rate numbers will soon appear to decrease “across the board” as states move to a uniform calculation that requires them to track each student individually, giving a more accurate count of how many actually finish high school. “Through this uniform method, states are raising the bar on data standards, and simply being more honest,” U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan said. Most states are required to convert to the new calculation this year, but the number won’t count as part of federal No Child Left Behind benchmarks until the 2012-13 school year. Schools that consistently miss those measures face sanctions. All but two states — Idaho and Kentucky, which need more time to develop student tracking systems — will start submitting the new numbers to the federal government starting late this summer. States that converted to the new formula already have seen drops ranging from modest to massive. Michigan had a nearly 10 percentage point fall when it made the switch in 2007. About half of states are not yet using the new calculation. Florida’s graduation rate remained about stable, at 79 percent, when it adopted the


3401 W. 6th

Changes in the way districts and states can calculate graduation rates in high schools have led to a decline in such rates for the Lawrence school district and its two public high schools. The rates for the 2009-2010 school year, as calculated using the new model, compared with the previous model: ● District: 82.1 percent, down from 90.3 percent. ● Free State High School: 84.7 percent, down from 90.8 percent. ● Lawrence High School: 81.6 percent, down from 89.8 percent. The new model requires that certain students be counted against the graduation rate, including: district students who transfer to schools such as Bishop Seabury Academy or Veritas Christian School; special-education students who may remain in school past age 18; students who choose to pursue a GED; and others with other special circumstances. No matter what the count, district officials say, their goal remains to see that each individual student has the best chance to graduate high school, on time. “The formula doesn’t change what we’re doing with kids,” said Kim Bodensteiner, the district’s chief academic officer. “It just changes the measuring stick.” new graduation rate in the 2009-10 school year. It would have been nearly two points higher if it had continued under the old calculation. States making the switch this year are offering estimates of expected dips and discussing the change in school board meetings. In Kansas, the graduation rate is expected to tumble from 89 percent to 80 percent, with one district in the state anticipating a 20-point drop. Georgia said its overall rate — now at 80 percent — could plummet about 15 percentage points. “We’re certainly concerned no matter what with that number under 100 percent,” said Kelly Smith, superintendent of Belle Plaine schools in Minnesota, which is transitioning to the new formula this year. “The new system isn’t changing what we’re doing in our schools, and we need to get that point across.”

States brace for grad rate dips as formula changes

by Scott Adams


Q: Who holds the $14.3 trillion in outstanding U.S. debt? A: The U.S. government owes itself $4.6 trillion, mostly borrowed from Social Security revenues. The remaining $9.7 trillion is owed to investors in Treasury securities — banks, pension funds, individual investors, state and local governments and foreign investors and governments. Nearly half of that — $4.5 trillion — is held by foreigners including China with $1.15 trillion and Japan with $907 billion. Q: How did the debt grow from $5.8 trillion in 2001 to its current $14.3 trillion? A: The biggest contributors to the nearly $9 trillion increase over a decade were: ● 2001 and 2003 tax cuts under President George W. Bush: $1.6 trillion. ● Additional interest costs: $1.4 trillion. ● Wars in Iraq and Afghanistan: $1.3 trillion. ● Economic stimulus package under Obama: $800 billion. ● 2010 tax cuts, a compromise by Obama and Republicans that extended jobless benefits and cut payroll taxes: $400 billion. ● 2003 creation of Medicare’s prescription drug benefit: $300 billion. ● 2008 financial industry bailout: $200 billion. ● Hundreds of billions less in revenue than expected since the Great Recession began in December 2007. ● Other spending increases in domestic, farm and defense programs, adding lesser amounts.

Cheers, jeers

Another try City officials should work with a major national retailer on what seems like a reasonable compromise to locate a new store in Lawrence.


awrence is fortunate to have another chance to attract a Lowe’s home improvement store to the city. The fact that developers for the project also indicate that Lowe’s doesn’t plan to seek any special taxing districts or other public incentives makes the project that much better. In October, Lawrence city commissioners rejected a plan to build a Lowe’s store near Sixth Street and Folks Road, saying the property wasn’t an appropriate location for a big box store. They were concerned with how close the store would be to Free State High School and that the project was a major departure from the original pedestrian-friendly plans for the Bauer Farm development at that location. At that time, commissioners suggested Lowe’s consider locating its store on property already zoned for retail development at Sixth Street and the South Lawrence Trafficway. Lowe’s continues to contend that property is too far away from residential development and now is seeking approval of a compromise site near the intersection of Sixth Street and Congressional Drive. Like the earlier site, the new location would need to be rezoned to accommodate the store. It currently is zoned for apartments and would need zoning for commercial retail. About five acres of the 17-acre site would be reserved for future apartment development. The loss of apartment land isn’t significant for Lawrence, which many would argue already has more apartment developments than it can support. The new location isn’t as far west as city commissioners and planners might prefer, but it is adjacent to another big-box retailer, Walmart, and has existing streets and other infrastructure to support such a development. It’s the city’s responsibility to carefully review the physical impacts of this project, but officials shouldn’t venture too far into a guessing game about what the Lawrence retail market will bear. During discussions last year, members of the city planning staff cited some figures that indicated retail space in Lawrence was growing faster than the city’s population and per capita incomes. An attorney supporting the earlier Lowe’s proposal, however, also pointed out the decline in retail sales in Lawrence, presumably because local shoppers are traveling to Topeka or the Kansas City area to visit stores, perhaps including Lowe’s, that aren’t available here. Other local government and business leaders also have expressed concern about the loss of retail sales in Lawrence and how the city might attract new retailers. The bottom line is that Lowe’s believes it can be successful in Lawrence or it wouldn’t be working this hard to locate here. It’s true that it will provide some added competition for similar stores, but that isn’t necessarily a bad thing for local consumers. City officials shouldn’t rubber stamp the new Lowe’s proposal, but they should take reasonable steps to try to help this popular retailer bring its store, jobs and tax revenue to Lawrence.

Extremism has grip on globe “Cry ‘Havoc!’ and let slip the dogs of war.” — Julius Caesar, Act 3 Scene 1 The dogs of war are snarling. They strain forward, slavering, growling, pawing the air, eager to get at one another, to rend and tear and wet their lips with blood. As strangers in a dog park would, we try to pull them back, to exert control. But you feel your feet sliding beneath you, feel yourself carried, helpless and unwilling, into this fight they mean to have. It strikes you how poor a leash is reason. Which brings us to Anders Behring Breivik, who allegedly bombed a government building and shot up a youth camp last week in peaceful, far away Norway. Dozens of people are dead. Breivik is reported to have seen himself as a Christian conservative crusader defending the faith against the evils of multiculturalism. Read: Muslims. And you wonder: Did this begin on Sept. 11, 2001, when putative Muslims crashed four planes full of innocent people? Did it begin on Nov. 5, 2009, when a putative Muslim shot fellow soldiers at an Army base in Texas? Did it begin when Cain slew Abel? Does it matter? The dogs of war are spoiling for this fight. So a putative Christian burns a Quran in Florida while others use arson to stop construction of a mosque in Tennessee. And now, there is this. Maybe it makes you want to scream the obvious to those who have grown besotted with conflating extremism and Islam: Extremism has no faith. But they

Aviation rhetoric is misguided By U.S. Sen. Pat Roberts Republican of Kansas


Leonard Pitts Jr.

It is difficult not to shudder with foreboding, to sense history turning as if on a great hinge, as you wonder without knowing just what it is turning to. This is, perhaps, what Stephen Stills felt 45 years ago when a street fight between cops and kids set him to pondering where all of this — the ’60s — was leading to. You probably know the first line of the very famous song he wrote: “There’s something happening here. What it is ain’t exactly clear.” But there is more in that song that seems oddly apropos to this moment: “There’s battle lines being drawn. Nobody’s right if everybody’s wrong.” And ... “Paranoia strikes deep. Into your life it will creep. It starts when you’re always afraid.” All of it framed by a guitar slowly chiming two notes like yellow caution lights on a rainslicked road. The songwriter felt a dread he could not name yet could not ignore. One feels fresh echo of that dread in an era where a man commits mass slaughter in defense of faith and the surprising thing is how unsurprised you are, because extremism is now the norm. Jaws open and eyes livid, the dogs of war leap. And what can you do, except strain to hold them back? Reason is a flimsy leash, but it is the only leash we’ve got.

With all of the flak general aviation is taking during the debt ceiling battle, it might be a good thing if President Obama Googled the World War II song, “Comin’ In On a Wing and A Prayer,” the tale of a plane struggling back to base after a bombing raid. General aviation is certainly struggling under the war of words against a major American employer. Despite the inaccurate claims by my friends on the left that general aviation only serves millionaires and billionaires, these aircraft serve as essential business tools. Understanding that managers, sales teams and technical experts Roberts are often required to visit numerous offices in a short amount of time, and in regions of the United States that aren’t served by large airports, general aviation is often their only option. In fact, 90 percent of our country’s airports aren’t accessible by commercial aircraft. General aviation employs more than 1.2 million workers, and annually contributes $150 billion to the U.S. economy. In 2010, general aviation delivered 1,334 planes valued at $7.9 billion, with well over half attributed to exports — a number that supports President Obama’s goal of doubling U.S. exports over the

next five years. General aviation has struggled during the recession, resulting in layoffs among the many highskill, high-paying jobs in this industry. Many hard working manufacturers have been forced to find work elsewhere or seek unemployment benefits. That is precisely why President Obama himself, along with Democratic members of Congress, included a provision in the stimulus bill to accelerate the depreciation schedules for general aviation aircraft. Well, what the left hand giveth, the class warfare hand taketh away. In a surprise attack on general aviation during several press conferences on how to achieve debt reduction, President Obama targeted tax breaks for “corporate jets” no less than six times. Likewise, budget negotiators are considering implementing onerous user fees on general aviation as a way to generate revenue,

which would further cripple the industry. Tom Buffenbarger, president of the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers, said it best in a joint letter he sent to President Obama with other aviation manufacturer associations, “Words have consequences and, in this industry, a few misguided words can put at risk even the ever-so-modest recovery we have experienced. What this industry and its workforce requires is more time to recover, a chance to book more orders and the opportunity to recall more workers.” The need to get serious about spending and our deficit is obvious, but it makes sense to only consider those provisions that would actually have a measurable impact on reducing our more than $14 trillion national debt. The Democrats proposal to change the depreciation schedules for corporate jets would only contribute $3 billion of revenue over 10 years. Considering that the United States borrows approximately $40 billion every 10 days, repealing this tax provision would close our national budget deficit for one hour. This is in addition to user fees, which could very well spell the end of the U.S. general aviation industry as we know it. The general aviation industry has come through some rough times this past decade. We will persevere and do so again — “Comin’ in on a wing and a prayer.” Our task would be a lot easier without so much class warfare flak from the White House.

To the editor: Some downtown comments: Weaver’s, way to go! Twice recently you have coated your sidewalk to cover up that minefield of discarded gum. Classy. Sidewalk gum downtown is a disgrace. Good job, Anglers Seafood. By installing that relatively inexpensive netting at the bottom of your awnings, you’ve eliminated the mess caused by bird roosting. Thank you, M&M Office Supply, for allowing downtown patrons to use your parking lot after hours. Jeers to Allen Press. By far the most unsightly parcel on Mass. St. is the northeast corner of 11th and Mass. Picture yourself, like most people coming to downtown Lawrence for the first time, cruising up Mass. St., taking in the beauty of South Park, then the historic courthouse, and then you see — that? Come on, Allen Press, please display some civic pride and spend a few dollars and dress up those buildings and parking lots. And jeers to the Doug Compton group for the continued desecration of the iconic Masonic Temple by leaving that boarding up for so long. Meant to be temporary, it was placed to discourage “inappropriate activity.” In practice, it actually provides screening for said activity, it attracts graffiti to itself and the rest of the building and is just shabby. With the current requests for development incentives, it gives the appearance that the group is deliberately blighting the property to leverage its position. Please, regardless of how the property is ultimately developed, do what it takes to quickly return that classy facade to downtown Lawrence. Thanks to all who make going downtown an enjoyable experience. Paul Veerkamp, Lawrence

Financial crisis To the editor: I listened to President Obama, with incredulity, as he lectured the American people on the spending habits of the last administration and his own efforts to revive a struggling economy. This president rescued nothing and, if anything, has led this nation to the precipice of financial disaster. Everything he or his administration has proposed, economically speaking, is a failure. It is all based in academia and nothing from the world of reality. The major bond rating companies of the world are considering downgrading the credit of the United States. Does the term “full faith and credit” mean anything to anybody? This is what our currency is based on. These rating companies are not looking at the debt ceiling; they are looking at our out-of-control spending. Has anyone considered what would happen if our currency is devalued? Rep. Boehner’s proposal of over $1 trillion in cuts, to match a debt limit increase, is over a 10year period. This is like bringing a squirt gun to a brush fire. It won’t work. Future congressional bodies are not obligated to honor these cuts. A balanced budget amendment must be put into place immediately. Congress must take definitive steps to restrict its own spending ability. The American people deserve better than this because we are better than this. The federal government needs to get out of the way and allow the engine of the free market to once again drive the prosperity of our great country. Scott Burkhart, Lawrence

water from January through June, said Larry Ruthi, with the National Weather Service’s Dodge City office. It also has been the driest July so far on record for Dodge City, with about 8 inches of rain falling during the period, Ruthi said. And temperatures have reached past 100 degrees more than 30 days in a row for much of southern Kansas, with no significant rain forecast for the near future. Cattle pens have been packed at Winter Livestock in Dodge City, said Brian Winter, who owns several sale barns. Last week, about 5,500 head sold at the Wednesday sale. In July 2010, market receipts for the month totaled 6,000. “That’s pretty telling,” Winter said. “Some of these guys wouldn’t sell until the fall, but it’s just been so dry they can’t maintain their herd.” The good news is that prices, for the most part, have stayed high, Winter said, because supplies haven’t rebuilt from the past decade’s droughts, demand for beef remains high and there’s a good export market.

The EP, titled “(Small Town) Rock N’ Roll Kids,” is a light-hearted romp that shimmers. “Tight Rope Walker,” the first track released from the EP, uses plenty of overdubbed harmonies for Elizabeth Goss, but is a simple, bouncy song about (what else) balance. The band is joined by Lawrence favorites Cowboy Indian Bear and Cloud Dog. If that’s not enough, tonight’s show will be the last time Mammoth Life performs in Lawrence during 2011.

Ranchers selling cattle because of drought PRATT (AP) — Ranchers in parts of Kansas are hauling their spring cattle to auction barns because a drought and the brutal heat have made it difficult to provide the water and hay needed to keep the animals healthy, according to a state agency. Some auction markets are seeing more than triple the number of cattle at weekly sales than they typically have at this time of year, the Kansas Agricultural Statistics Service said. For example, 14,500 head of cattle were taken to sale rings at Pratt, Salina and Dodge City last week. Last year, those auction markets sold just 4,300 head. The sales are necessary because the hot, dry weather has dried up ponds and pastures, The Hutchinson News reported Wednesday. The statistics service said more than half of the range and pasture conditions are in poor or very poor condition. Some areas of southwest Kansas haven’t received a good rain for more than a year. Large cattle-producing areas like Comanche County had just 1.49 inches at Cold-

Traylor learning from twins, Aldrich By Gary Bedore

Traylor has been compared to Thomas Robinson by Robinson and KU coach Bill Self

Kansas University freshman basketball power forward Jamari Traylor has found a way to beat the heat during a brutally-hot July in his new college hometown. The 6-foot-8, 216–pounder from IMG Academies in Bradenton, Fla., has been splitting his time taking summer school classes in air-conditioned classrooms on campus and working

out in the Jayhawks’ climate-controlled practice facility. “For the most part, I’m in the gym with the twins. They are here all the time,” Traylor said Wednesday in Allen Fieldhouse. He was referring to Marcus and Markieff Morris, who have been in Lawrence off and on since the June 23 NBA Draft. “Thomas (Robinson) is in here all the time. Cole (Aldrich) is in here, too. Anytime I get a chance to watch them, I will try to steal a couple moves here and there.

“It is really helpful playing against guys who have accomplished things like Cole and the twins,” Traylor added. “Those guys really made a name for themselves in the Big 12. I look forward to playing here and hopefully I can do the same as well.” Traylor — who has attended the second session of summer school after working out at IMG Academies in June — has been impressed with KU junior-to-be Robinson.

“Thomas is a freak athlete. He is super strong,” Traylor said of the 6-10, 240-pound Washington, D.C., native. “When we play against each other, he’s not movable. He is a beast.” Traylor, who averaged 20 points, 12 rebounds and three blocks a game last year at IMG, “is physical,” Robinson noted. “He plays hard. I kind of want to say he’s similar to me. He’s high energy. He’s trying to dunk all the time.” Traylor is known as a guy who hustles all the time.

“His motor is similar to Thomas Robinson,” KU coach Bill Self said. “He’s an inner-city, tough Chicago kid that has bounce. He wants to be good. We think he’ll be an immediate and major contributor for us.” Traylor flashed an infectious smile when asked about his rugged style of play. “I played football growing up (in Chicago). It’s probably why I got so tough,” Traylor said. “I get Please see TRAYLOR, page 3B


Sooners united by grief

By Matt Tait

Earlier this summer, Kansas University recruiting coordinator and running backs coach Reggie Mitchell said the one position KU would try to sign in every class no matter how big or small was quarterback. He wasn’t kidding. Wednesday, the Jayhawks picked up a pair of oral commitments from Class of 2012 quarterbacks Seth Russell, of Garland (Texas) High, and Bilal Marshall, of Dade Chrisitian High in Hialeah, Fla. The pickups hammer home a couple of different points. First, there are no guarantees at quarterback, and it’s worth adding a couple every year because you never know which ones are going to become Todd Reesings and which ones are going to become Mario Kinseys. Second, Turner Gill’s offense will be built around QBs who can move.

it would require an evaluation to know. Since Jim is unwilling to see a therapist, try encouraging him to get a physical to rule out a medical problem.

“Jean,” informing me that the full name is “not a real name.” I don’t get it. When a coworker asked others to call her “Susan” instead of “Sue,” there was no objection, and everyone respected her preference. But not mine. I’ve tried many polite approaches, but can’t seem to get the point across. When people ask, “Do you mind if I call you Jean?” I smile and reply, “Actually, it’s Jean-Marie.” The usual response is, “That’s OK. I’ll just call you Jean.” Frankly, I find this dismissive and disrespectful, and I am fed up. Do

The news media have a short attention span. Even a story as dramatic and longlasting as the 2010 Gulf oil spill has faded from the scene, giving viewers a sense that things have gone back to normal. They haven’t. And the two-hour documentary “Black Tide: Voices From the Gulf” (8 p.m., Animal Planet) offers ample proof. Don’t go looking for an indictment or a black-and-white case. “Black Tide” offers overlapping and contradictory takes on events. We hear from Gulf oystermen who have not shucked a single shell since the spill and who face the daunting prospect of shutting down a business that has been in the family for 134 years. A spokesman for BP argues that the unprecedented nature of the disaster has been matched by a response every bit as ambitious and oversized. He talks of assembling thousands of boats and tens of thousands of workers and coordinating a worldwide effort to stem the spill, not to mention creating a multibillion-dollar fund to make things right for fishermen and other businesses on the Gulf. But the closer one gets to the details, the more clear it becomes that nobody can write a check big enough to repair the destruction of Louisiana’s coasts and waterways, a source for a third of the nation’s seafood. We also see that as important as Louisiana’s seafood is to its unique culture and to America’s food supply, it is dwarfed by the oil and natural gas industry. As industry spokespeople explain, many of the state’s fishermen also work for the oil industry. Was this a delicate balance, or a case of having it both ways? One fact remains: An oil spill exceeding 200 million gallons has dire consequences and changes every equation. ● Can “Project Runway” (8 p.m., Lifetime) really be in its ninth season? Familiar faces return, including Heidi Klum, Tim Gunn, Michael Kors and Nina Garcia. But the real stars are the 20 aspiring designers. “Make it work, people.” ● Forest Whitaker narrates “Serving Life” (8 p.m., OWN) a look at Louisiana’s Angola prison, where the average sentence exceeds 90 years. ● “Titans” (9 p.m., CNBC) profiles Milton S. Hershey, whose relentless pursuit of the perfect confection resulted in the massive corporation that bears his name.

Dear D.C.: You are entitled to be called what you prefer, although people tend to shorten everyone’s name unless taught to do otherwise. So be more assertive. The first time you are addressed as “Jean,” reply, “Sorry, but I prefer Jean-Marie.” After that, if someone insists on calling you by a nickname, pretend you do not hear them. It will take time, and you should always be polite and friendly, but don’t give in.

JACQUELINE BIGAR’S STARS For Thursday, July 28: This year, you'll see a big difference if you relax and just go with the flow. Know that you don't always have to have the answers, nor will you. Expect positive events at work or with a public commitment. You might see a pay raise or promotion. If you are single, you could hook up with a very different person. If you are attached, share more of your public life.

Dear Annie: I am really frustrated and would like some advice. I have a double first name (“Jean-Marie”) with no middle name or initial. It’s a bit unusual, but not terribly so, and it’s easy to pronounce. I always identify myself with my entire name, but for some reason, people insist on shortening it. My full first name is on my nameplate at work, and I use it for all correspondence. Yet many people insist on using only

Dear Annie: I have been married to “Jim” for three years, and we lived together for seven years before that. We had a rocky relationship until we had our daughter, who is now 4. Jim has always been an angry, controlling, emotional person. He managed to get the anger under control for a few years, but now it’s back. He will no longer sleep in the same room that I’m in and told me we have an unhappy marriage and it’s all my fault. Beyond that, he completely ignores me. Tell me, Annie, how did my husband go from being a loving man, telling me I am the best thing that ever happened to him, to hating me? When I asked him what happened, he replied, “Just fix yourself,” and I have no idea what that means. He won’t talk about it. I asked Jim to go for marriage counseling, but the therapist said Jim needs individual help, and he won’t see us as a couple until then. Jim refuses to go. Please help. — Confused in Kentucky
