Official: Fewer police additions would lower mill levy By Chad Lawhorn firstname.lastname@example.org
The dickering is not done yet. Lawrence city commissioners are set to finalize their 2012 budget today. But commissioners are indicating there will be a last-minute proposal to cut
ommended by City Manager David Corliss. By cutting back on the police expansion, Schumm said, the city could drop the proposed mill levy increase from 1.88 mills to 1.7 mills. The 1.7 mills was approved by voters to fund an expansion of the Lawrence Public Library.
“This will get us to an amount that is no more than the voters approved,” Schumm said. The proposal will draw debate. City Commissioner Hugh Carter said he was still learning about details in the proposal, but didn’t like the sound of it.

‘Desert heat’ to envelop us today

Few would confuse Massachusetts Street for Las Vegas Boulevard, but forecasters are laying odds that the Lawrence area will be shedding its usual conditions for those more typical of the Sin City come this afternoon. Go ahead and bet the house. “It’ll give us a hot, dry punch,” said Jared Leighton, a meteorologist for the National Weather Service in Topeka. “It’ll feel more like a desert heat — a dry heat.” Expect an “atmospheric mix” not seen all that often in these parts to push the temperature to a record 110 degrees this afternoon, Leighton said. Air from more than a mile above will press down over northeast Kansas, simultaneously drawing in dry air from New Mexico and the Texas panhandle. The resulting slight decline in humidity normally would be cause for celebration, but the accompanying rise in temperatures essentially should cancel out any benefit, Leighton said. If the temperature hits 110 degrees — surpassing the record 106 degrees in the area last year, which had topped the 105 degrees
6TH HOTTEST JULY Last month ended up as the sixth hottest July on record in east-central Kansas, the region that includes Douglas County, according to Mary Knapp, state climatologist. Here are the region’s top 10 since 1895, expressed as the mean average daily temperature: 1. 87.3 degrees, in 1980. 2. 86.7 degrees, in 1936. 3. 86.6 degrees, in 1934. 4. 86.1 degrees, in 1954. 5. 85.4 degrees, in 1901. 6. 85.2 degrees, in 2011. 7. 84.1 degrees, in 1939. 8. 83.6 degrees, in 1935. 9. 82.8 degrees, in 1955. 10. 82.7 degrees, in 1974. recorded in both 1964 and 1935 — the heat index likely won’t rise above 112 degrees.

Dozens of heat-related injuries treated Three people were treated for heat-related symptoms Monday at Lawrence Memorial Hospital as temperatures soared above 100 degrees, said Belinda Rehmer, an LMH spokeswoman. Rehmer said the hospital in all of July saw 31 patients because of heatrelated issues and six of them had to be admitted for observation.

The National Weather Service has issued an excessive heat warning until 7 p.m. Wednesday with near-record temperatures expected today with highs in the range of 103 to 110 degrees in the area. The NWS advises residents to take extra precautions by limiting time spent outside, rescheduling strenuous activities to early morning or evening hours, wearing lightweight and loose-fitting clothing when possible, and drinking plenty of water. said. Overall, three people would arrive in the emergency room Monday for heat-related issues, hospital officials said, after 31 people had checked in there during July.

The agreement, crafted by President Barack Obama and congressional leaders after weeks of often intensely personal negotiations, aims to slash deficits by at least $2.1 trillion over the next 10 years.

It must be increased by today or the government would be at risk of default, possibly panicking financial markets and sending the economy reeling back into recession.

Judge blocks Kansas law defunding Planned Parenthood By Roxana Hegeman Associated Press Writer
WICHITA — An incredulous federal judge on Monday rejected the state’s claim that a new Kansas statute that denied Planned Parenthood federal funding did not target the group, ruling that the law unconstitu-
tionally intended to punish Planned Parenthood for advocating for abortion rights and would likely be overturned. U.S. District Judge J. Thomas Marten granted the request from Planned Parenthood of Kansas and Mid-Missouri for a temporary injunction blocking enforcement of the law, which
would require the state to allocate federal family planning dollars first to public health departments and hospitals, and leave no money for Planned Parenthood or similar groups. Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt said the state will appeal the ruling, which orders Kansas to continue pro-
viding the federal Title X grant funding to Planned Parenthood. Marten’s order handed the state its second major setback after abortion foes succeeded in pushing through the Republican-controlled Legislature a slew of anti-abortion legislation, Please see JUDGE, page 6A

veto. The f inal debt-limit increase of at least $1.2 trillion would take effect next year, after further deficit reduction went into effect. Obama announced the agreement Sunday night, and the mood in Congress on Monday was feisty and frustrated. Lawmakers on the left and right were angry. On the left, Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif., called the agreement “a slow walk to total disaster.” Rep. Steve Cohen, D-Tenn., branded it “evil and more evil.” Waters and other liberals warned that Obama could pay a political price. “The progressive element of this country will be so disappointed with this administration if this bill passes. It translates into people staying home. I absolutely believe that,” she said, referring to voters in November 2012. On the right, some thought the agreement didn’t go far enough. “This plan does not solve our problem,” said Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky. “Not even close. I cannot abide the destruction of our economy, therefore I vigorously oppose this deal and I urge my colleagues and the American people to do the same.” But most lawmakers were reluctant supporters, though House Democrats split their votes evenly. “Everyone had to give something up. People on the right are upset. People on the left are upset. It was a compromise,” said Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev. Broken down by party, 174
Stages of cuts The agreement would cut deficits by $917 billion over 10 years, according to an analysis by the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office. Those reductions would allow the debt limit to be raised by $900 billion, which is expected to be enough to last through early next year. About $350 billion would come from defense spending. The rest would come from cuts to a variety of domestic programs, such as education, housing and transportation. Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security wouldn’t be cut. A second series of reductions, totaling as much as $1.5 trillion, would be subject to a vote by late December. A special bipartisan joint congressional committee will recommend specifics. The committee would have to make recommendations by Nov. 23, and Congress would have to vote by Dec. 23. If those recommendations aren’t approved on up-ordown, non-amendable votes in Congress, programs would be cut automatically across the board — half from defense, half from nondefense — starting in 2013. Social Security, Medicaid, military and civilian retirement, and most lowincome programs would be exempt. Medicare cuts would be restricted to payments to providers, and limited. Once the reductions are made, the debt limit would go up by at least another $1.2 trillion, which is expected to allow the government sufficient borrowing authority through 2012.

Police CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1A
But Schumm said he will propose that the city plan to add two new officers per year until staffing reaches an adequate level. New Police Chief Tarik Khatib has said the department could use 10 or more officers to get to adequate levels. “Two is a good number to start with, and if we keep doing that, we’ll have several new officers in a few years,” Schumm said. Commissioners, though, can’t formally commit today to hire new police officers in future years. A current commission can’t bind a future commission, so any new hiring will have to win at least three votes each year. Mayor Aron Cromwell said he was leaning toward supporting Schumm’s proposal, but does have some concerns. “I definitely think we do need more police officers,” Cromwell said. “But I see some logic in trying to maintain the mill levy where it is at. I think what is important is that we make a commitment to continue adding in the future.” Carter said the amount of savings in Schumm’s plan is minimal. It would reduce the mill levy increase by 0.18 of a mill, which would reduce the property tax bill on a $200,000 home by $4.14 per year. “I know we can find that
Bipartisan dislike Supporters of the deal focused most of their attention on the House, where winning passage was more of a struggle. Unlike senators, who serve six-year terms and represent more diverse constituencies, every lawmaker in the House faces re-election next year, and many represent districts that were carefully drawn to make them politically homogenous. Mo s t o f t h e 8 7 Ho u s e Republican freshmen were elected with the backing of the grass-roots tea party movement, which has been adamant that deep spending cuts are needed and allowing debt to rise is forbidden. Many frown on compromise. They noted that the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office estimated that the deficit would be reduced by only $21 billion in fiscal 2012 and $42 billion the following year, a schedule designed to permit the private economy to strengthen before federal spending is ratcheted back sharply. Many conservatives viewed that as weak. Dismay was rampant on the other side of the political spectrum. Liberals were upset that no tax revenues were included in the agreement, and that the spending cuts would decimate popular social programs. Rep. Yvette Clarke, D-N.Y., said she would vote no because she couldn’t sell the deal in her district. “ ‘ Yo u k n ow wh a t , t h e wealthiest people in this nation don’t have to sacrif i ce a ny t h i n g , b ut we’ re going to take another pound of flesh from you.’ There’s no way I can do that,” she said.
savings elsewhere,” Carter said. Both Schumm’s plan and Corliss’ recommendation would continue to fund an existing detective position that currently is funded with a federal grant, which is expiring.
Fee increases In other city budget news, commissioners are expected to debate some fee increases. Carter said he is opposed to a staff recommendation to increase a system development fee that is charged on new construction that connects to city water and sewer service. The fee has been in place since the 1990s, and is designed to help the city pay for infrastructure projects that are caused by new growth. For 2012, the city is proposing to increase the one-time fee by 11 percent, or an additional $340. Carter said such an increase would be sending the wrong message as builders in the community already have been hit hard by the economy. “Housing is such a critical element to our economy,” Carter said. “As a government, there is a not a lot we can do to create jobs, but we can help create an environment to support economic development.” Cromwell said he’s reluctant to go against staff’s recommendation on the system development charges. He said the city’s analysis shows

the fees really ought to be higher than what’s being proposed. He said that if the city doesn’t keep the fees at an appropriate level, it could make it more difficult for the city to start new infrastructure projects once the economy does pick back up. The biggest project on the horizon is a new sewage treatment plant south of the Wakarusa River. “The builders who are impacted by the increase in this fee right now will be the ones who scream the loudest if that plant isn’t built on time,” Cromwell said. Commissioners haven’t yet committed to a date to build the multimillion-dollar plant, but rather have said they want to wait until the city’s population growth rebounds. Commissioners also are set to approve several other fee increases, including: ● A 2 percent increase in water rates and a 2 percent increase in sewer rates. ● A 2.7 percent increase, or about 40 cents per month, for residential trash service. ● A $7 increase in the city’s Municipal Court fee. The new fee, which represents the court costs that are added onto a ticket, will total $60, if approved. The new court fee would go into effect Sept. 1. City commissioners will meet at 6:30 p.m. today at City Hall. — City reporter Chad Lawhorn can be reached at 832-6362. Follow him at Twitter.com/clawhorn_ljw

Giffords makes surprise appearance for vote By David Lightman McClatchy Newspapers
WASHINGTON — Rep. Gabrielle Giffords returned to the Capitol on Monday, her first appearance there since she was shot in the head in January, to cast an emotionally charged vote in favor of the debt-reduction deal. The Arizona Democrat walked quietly into the House of Representatives chamber through a side door, and the tension that was dominating the voting on the controversial deal suddenly dissipated. Instead of watching the votes go up on the electronic boards above, members of the House — Democrats and Republicans alike — burst into applause as Giffords, her hair cropped short and wearing glasses, stepped inside. It was an emotional moment rarely seen in the chamber. Lawmakers surrounded her, hugged her, and watched her smile broadly and finally take a seat in the back. Giffords’ surprise appear-

In June, she made her first public appearance since the shooting at a Houston event honoring her husband, Mark Kelly, an astronaut. But it was uncertain when, if ever, she’d return to the Capitol, and there had been no hint she would be back Monday. Until she suddenly appeared. At that point, the debt deal had about 200 votes, and it needed 16 more to pass. The vote count instantly soared, finally reaching 269. Shortly afterward, Giffords tweeted: “The Capitol looks beautiful, and I am honored to be at work tonight.”

Brownback cancels SRS meeting with Davis

Syrian troops attack Hama for 2nd day Anti-government protesters in the Syrian city of Hama set up barricades and took up sticks and stones to defend themselves Monday after one of the bloodiest days so far in the regime’s campaign to quell an uprising now in its fifth month. The protesters vowed not to allow a repeat of 1982, when thousands of people were killed in Hama after President Bashar Assad’s father ordered a massacre. As evening fell, residents said Syrian tanks resumed intense shelling of the restive city and troops fired machine guns at worshippers about to head to mosques for special nighttime prayers on the first day of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan. Residents had just broken their daily dawn-to-dusk fast, and the shelling appeared aimed at preventing the mosque gatherings, fearing they would trigger large anti-government protests. It was the second day of shelling of Hama and other cities. In attacks earlier in the day, four people were killed in Hama and three more were killed in other parts of the country, residents and rights groups said. 2 | CAIRO
Egyptian forces clear activists Egyptian forces swinging electrified batons and shouting the battle cry “God is great” swiftly chased off dozens of activists Monday who had refused to end four weeks of renewed protests at Tahrir Square to pressure the country’s transitional military rulers. Hundreds of riot police backed by armored vehicles and soldiers moved in to tear down the camp of dozens of tents after a group of holdout activists — some of them relatives of people killed in the uprising that toppled Hosni Mubarak in February — refused pleas over loudspeakers to go home. Some in the crowd hurled stones at the police. Firing shots in the air and using clubs, Egyptian forces cleared the square within minutes. With Mubarak’s trial on charges he ordered the killing of protesters due to start Wednesday, the ruling military council appeared to run out of patience with the protesters, whose key demand is to see the former president and other members of his regime face justice.
House minority leader, governor will talk when ideas to save office become more concrete By Scott Rothschild and Mark Fagan email@example.com; firstname.lastname@example.org
TOPEKA — Gov. Sam Brownback has canceled a meeting scheduled with House Minority Leader Paul Davis, D-Lawrence, to discuss the planned closure of
the Lawrence off ice of the Kansas Department of Social and Rehabilitation Services. The meeting was supposed to start at 9 a.m. today, and Davis was going to appeal to Brownback to keep the office open. But Davis’ office got word from Brownback’s office Monday afternoon that the meeting was off.
Davis said the governor’s office said they would reschedule the meeting when there were more concrete ideas about ways to keep the office in operation. “I’m still encouraged they are talking with us and seem to be open to some alternatives,” Davis said. “It’s just going to take some sorting through.”

The body of an 11-year-old girl who disappeared almost a week ago was discovered Monday in a river less than half a mile from her home, and authorities said they considered her death suspicious. Celina Cass was reported missing July 26. New Hampshire Fish and Game Department divers found her body late Monday morning near a hydroelectric dam that spans the Connecticut River between her hometown, Stewartstown, and Canaan, Vt., ending a massive search, Senior Assistant Attorney General Jane Young said. The body was recovered from the river Monday evening, she said. “We have brought Celina home, obviously not the way we wanted to bring her home,” said Young, her voice breaking with emotion. Authorities had said that Celina, who lived with her older sister, mother and stepfather a mile from the Canadian border, was last seen at her home computer around 9 p.m. on July 25 and was gone the next morning. Police said there was no sign of a struggle and there was no indication she ran away or someone took her. Young declined to say whether there were any suspects in the girl’s death.

LAWRENCE MEMORIAL HOSPITAL registered nurse Holly Soetaert, left, and Dana Hale, vice president of nursing, have a laugh as they go through the line for the salad bar Monday at the temporary cafeteria setup in the atrium of the hospital.
The new vice president of sales and marketing for The World Company’s media division is ready to grow the marketability of the Lawrence company’s newspapers and websites. Susan Cantrell, a Kansas University journalism graduate, now oversees advertising and marketing for the Journal-World, area weekly newspapers and websites including LJWorld.com, KUSports.com, Lawrence.com, Cantrell WellCommons.com and SunflowerHorizons.com. She returns to the area after f ive years in Tucson, Ariz., where she had served as vice president of advertising for The Arizona Daily Star, including three websites. Before that she had worked in various management capacities during 23 years at The Kansas City Star, with oversight of several suburban newspapers, the company’s magazine division and, during her last two years, as the newspaper’s vice president of sales and marketing. “I’m excited to come back to my roots, in terms of revisiting Lawrence and the University of Kansas and the suburban properties in Kansas City,” said Cantrell, who grew up in Kansas City, Kan. “They’re all very familiar territory. And yet, today, I think they have more promise than ever.” Suzanne Schlicht, chief operating officer for The World Company, described Cantrell as a talented and innovative leader, and as one committed to the longterm success of the media industry. “Her track record in sales management, online advertising and marketing, coupled with her knowledge of northeast Kansas and strong area ties, make her uniquely qualified to lead our sales efforts,” Schlicht said.

Douglas County Sheriff’s officers are investigating the death of an adult male camper who was found Monday morning in a mobile home in a campground near Clinton Lake. Sgt. Steve Lewis, a sheriff’s spokesman, said deputies and Lawrence-Douglas County Fire Medical workers found the man after they were called at 10:10 a.m. Monday. Lewis said the man had been dead “for some time” but that the cause of death was still pending as part of the autopsy. “Investigators found no evidence of wrongdoing in the camper,” Lewis said. The sheriff’s office did not identify the man.

Forgery investigation leads to man’s arrest By George Diepenbrock email@example.com
Lawrence police officers Monday morning arrested a 36-year-old Lawrence man on outstanding warrants after a forgery investigation Monday morning at a Lawrence hotel, said Sgt. Matt Sarna, a police spokesman. According to jail records, police arrested the Lawrence man, Geoffry S. Beers, on two outstanding municipal court warrants and a state warrant in which he’s accused of absconding from his parole related to a 2007 robbery at Kwik Shop, 845 Miss. Sarna said Beers was arrested at the hotel after an employee at Walgreen’s, 3421 W. Sixth St., alleged a man had passed counterfeit bills to make a purchase at 5:30 a.m. Monday. Based on a description, officers located a truck in the parking lot at Holiday Inn Lawrence, 200 McDonald Drive, and police later found
Beers and a 42-year-old Lawrence woman in a room at the hotel, Sarna said. An officer placed a woman in handcuffs about 10:30 a.m. and drove her from the hotel in a patrol car. But the woman later was released, Sarna said. He said the investigation into the use of counterfeit money was ongoing. At times Monday morning, four patrol cars were in the hotel’s parking lot. Officers could also be seen collecting evidence from inside and examining an older-model pickup truck in the hotel’s parking lot east of the building.

Gay rights advocates slam Brownback ————
Governor criticized for plans to attend prayer event organized by anti-gay groups By Scott Rothschild firstname.lastname@example.org
TOPEKA — The leader of a Kansas gay rights group on Monday expressed outrage that Gov. Sam Brownback was going to a highly publicized prayer event put on by anti-gay groups. Thomas Witt, chairman of the Kansas Equality Coalition, said organizers of “The Response” at Reliant Stadium in Houston on Saturday are beyond extremists when it comes to anti-homosexual rhetoric, and Brownback should not be associating with them. “These aren’t groups who just don’t want gays to get married,” Witt said. “Everyone knows where Sam Brownback stands on that; he doesn’t like it. But this is about showing support for organizations that would rather see us dead.” In June, Brownback’s office said the Republican governor had accepted an invitation from Texas Gov. Rick Perry, also a Republican and possible presidential candidate, to attend the event that is being dubbed “a call to prayer for a nation in crisis.” Brownback’s office said he would be going at his own expense. Since then, however, Brownback’s office has been quiet on the subject. In recent days, the governor’s office would not confirm his plans, only to say that Brownback would be on vacation during
I don’t know if extremist is a strong enough word. Supporting the death penalty for gays, that’s not extreme; it’s inhumane.” — Thomas Witt, chairman of the Kansas Equality Coalition that time. Several groups that have leadership roles in the event have gained national attention. The American Family Association is listed as a host of the event, and several of its leaders are involved in putting it on. Mississippi-based AFA describes itself as a profamily group that opposes abortion and homosexuality. It is currently calling for a boycott of Home Depot because AFA says the company has sponsored and participated in gay pride parades. The Southern Poverty Law Center has designated AFA as a hate group, citing statements about homosexuality, such as a direct mail fundraising appeal that said, “For the sake of our children and society, we must oppose the spread of homosexual activity! Just as we must oppose murder, stealing and adultery!” In 2010, Bryan Fischer, director of issue analysis for government and public poli-
cy at AFA, said, “Homosexuality gave us Adolf Hitler, and homosexuals in the military gave us the Brown Shirts, the Nazi war machine and 6 million dead Jews.” “The Response” leadership team also includes several members of the International House of Prayer in Kansas City, Mo., and TheCall.
Beyond ‘extreme’ Anti-homosexual minister Lou Engle is a leader with the International House of Prayer, co-founder of TheCall, and has had a long association with Brownback. Engle and other anti-gay ministers from the United States have been accused by gay rights and religious groups of attempting to increase anti-gay sentiment in Uganda, where officials have been considering legislation that would criminalize homosexuality up to the point of including the death penalty for gays and lesbians. A video of Engle speaking against the “homosexual agenda” at a rally in Uganda has been widely viewed. Engle has said his comments were misunderstood. “I don’t know if extremist is a strong enough word,” Witt said of some involved in the prayer event in Houston. “Supporting the death penalty for gays, that’s not extreme; it’s inhumane.” Brownback and Engle have known each other for years and for a seven-month peri-
od shared a condo in Washington, D.C., when Brownback was a U.S. senator. Engle said he had dreamed that Brownback would be president of the United States. Brownback ran for the Republican Party nomination for president in 2007 but was unsuccessful. In 2009, Brownback participated with Engle in a “PrayerCast” in which participants prayed against the passage of federal health care reform. Brownback has also spoken at rallies with Engle. But last year, Brownback’s relationship with Engle became an issue during the governor’s race when the Democratic candidate, state Sen. Tom Holland of Baldwin City, called on Brownback to denounce Engle. At the time, Brownback said he disagreed with some of Engle’s statements and that he hadn’t spoken to Engle for several months. Brownback said in the past he worked with Engle on measures that called for apologies for the treatment of American Indians and blacks. Witt said that even though Brownback is going to “The Response” on his own time, that doesn’t matter. “He’s the governor, fulltime. And he’s everybody’s governor, not just the governor of the right-wing base,” he said.
SRS CONTINUED FROM PAGE 3A
Kansas City. The proposal has caused widespread opposition. Local leaders say closing the Lawrence office will disrupt services to thousands of vulnerable Kansans. Siedlecki has said the office closure will save about $400,000 per year, mostly in rent. But recently it was revealed that half of that amount Davis is paid by the federal government. Davis said local units of government in Lawrence are discussing how they might be able to help keep the office open. “We just need to have more conversations about that and try to get an understanding of where people are before we talk to the governor,” Davis said. Talks have been going on concerning how local government could offset the state’s
rent costs for the SRS building. Douglas County commissioners have held two closeddoor sessions on the SRS issue — one Monday and one Friday — but they have remained tight-lipped about their deliberations. “We’re continuing to work on this issue,” said Jim Flory, commission chairman, after adjourning Monday’s special meeting without any formal action. “We’re continuing to work on it, which says something in and of itself.” Added Commissioner Mike Gaughan: “As a commission, we’re very concerned about making sure that we look out for the community and we continue to look forward to resolving this. We continue to look at every option we can think of, with our attorneys.” Gaughan declined to say whether the commission would be coming up with a plan, or plans, for Davis to take to Brownback. “We’re looking at every option that we can think of,” Gaughan said. — Statehouse reporter Scott Rothschild can be reached at 785-423-0668.

Man’s 2nd trial set to begin in 2006 shooting death of hip-hop artist By George Diepenbrock email@example.com
A Kansas City, Kan., man could be the biggest beneficiary in a Douglas County murder case after his co-defendant’s unsuccessful attempt to withdraw a guilty plea in the case. Durrell Jones, 24, is scheduled to face his second trial next Monday as prosecutors accuse him of killing Lawrence hip-hop artist Anthony Vital, whose body was found in 2006 west of Lawrence. A jury in March was unable to reach a unanimous verdict in Jones’ case. Co-defendant Major Edwards Jr., 31, of Lawrence, testified at the first trial that he saw Jones shoot Vital to collect on a drug debt. But Edwards’ attorney, Napoleon Crews, said in open court two weeks ago that prosecutors had provided him with allegations from a fellow jail mate, Joe Hunter, who claims Edwards told him he murdered Vital. Edwards in hand-written letters to Chief District Judge Robert Fairchild insists he has not talked to anyone in jail about his case. “To(o) many people have lied on me to get a time cut,” Edwards wrote in the letter to Fairchild dated June 30. “The latest person to lie on me was Joe Hunter. The D.A. and you will get a letter once a week saying that I didn’t talk to anyone about my case.”
According to the Kansas Department of Corrections, Hunter was taken July 21 to the El Dorado Correctional Facility for a 2011 Douglas County theft conviction on top of sentences for forgery and theft in 2009. Edwards pleaded guilty to voluntary manslaughter in March 2010, and he testified at Jones’ March trial that he felt remorse for leading Jones to Vital that night but said he didn’t shoot Vital. According to court records, prosecutors agreed to ask Fairchild to reduce Edwards’ sentence by four years in exchange for Edwards’ cooperation against Jones. Edwards faces 18 years in prison for the voluntary manslaughter conviction. But after the mistrial, Edwards filed a motion seeking to withdraw his plea in the case alleging he was misled into pleading guilty and promised a seven- to eightyear sentence. However, a retired judge at the July 18 hearing denied Edwards’ motion. Crews, who had also brought up the allegations Hunter made against Edwards during the same hearing, said afterward he did not expect Edwards to testify at Jones’ trial as fallout. But Edwards filed his own hand-written motion July 21 asking Fairchild to remove Crews as his appointed attorney from the case saying they have had a “complete breakdown in communication.”

“Defendant wishes to cooperate right now at this moment with the D.A. against Durrell Jones,” Edwards wrote and also alleged Crews the day after the July 18 hearing recommended he “play hard ball” against prosecutors and not testify until he could get a better deal. Crews has also f iled a motion asking to withdraw from representing Edwards also citing a breakdown in communication with his client. Crews is the fourth attorney to represent Edwards in the case. Although Edwards testified he saw Jones shoot Vital, Jones’ defense attorney John Kerns in the March trial questioned Edwards’ credibility and said there was evidence Edwards had bragged about killing Vital in prison and even wrote rap lyrics about it. Douglas County District Attorney Charles Branson declined comment about Jones’ case Monday. Edwards in 2008 was sentenced to serve five years in federal prison for unlawful possession of a sawed-off shotgun, and Jones was also sentenced to serve six years in prison for a federal drug conviction. Jones’ projected release date in the federal case is March 31, 2012, according to the Federal Bureau of Prisons. — Reporter George Diepenbrock can be reached at 832-7144.

Coverage with no copay extended to birth control WASHINGTON — A half-century after the advent of the pill, the Obama administration on Monday ushered in a change in women’s health care potentially as transformative: coverage of birth control as prevention, with no copays. Services ranging from breast pumps for new mothers to counseling on domestic violence were also included in the broad expansion of women’s preventive care under President Barack Obama’s health care overhaul. Since birth control is the most common drug prescribed to women, health plans should make sure it’s readily available, said Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius. “Not doing it would be like not covering flu shots,” she said. Officials said the women’s prevention package will be available Jan. 1, 2013, in most cases, resulting in a slight overall increase in premiums. Tens of millions of women are expected to benefit initially, a number that is likely to grow with time. At first, some plans may be exempt due to an arcane provision of the health care law known as the “grandfather” clause. But those plans could face pressure from their members to include the new
coverage. Earlier requirements under the health care law improved preventive coverage Sebelius generally for people of both sexes. Social and religious and religious conservatives objected to the birth control mandate, saying a conscience exception unveiled by the administration is insufficient. Sebelius acted after a nearunanimous recommendation last month from a panel of experts at the prestigious Institute of Medicine, which advises the government. Panel chairwoman Linda Rosenstock, dean of public health at the University of California, Los Angeles, said that prevention of unintended pregnancies is essential for the psychological, emotional and physical health of women. “Over a span of generations from grandmothers to granddaughters, we have come from birth control being a hope and a wish — and almost luck — to being recognized as a part of health care that improves women’s health,” said Cynthia Pearson of the National Women’s Health Network, an advocacy

only to see federal judges quickly block their enforcement. Last month in a separate lawsuit, a federal judge in Kansas City, Kan., also temporarily blocked stringent new abortion clinic regulations. Planned Parenthood argued the Kansas statute is part of a national campaign to cut off the entity’s federal family planning money because of its advocacy of abortion rights. A federal judge in late June put on hold on a similar law in Indiana. Similar actions to partially or fully defund Planned Parenthood were taken by state legislatures in New Hampshire, North Carolina, Tennessee, Texas and Wisconsin. Marten agreed with Planned Parenthood’s argument that the Kansas law is unconstitutional because it would impose additional restrictions on a federally funded program, thereby violating the Supremacy Clause. He also agreed with the group’s contention that the law was intended to punish Planned Parenthood for advocating abortion rights and therefore infringes on its rights of association guaranteed by the First and Fourteenth amendments. “The purpose of the statute was to single out, punish and exclude Planned Parenthood,” Marten said. Planned Parenthood had argued that that several lawmakers boasted on the floor,
The purpose of the statute was to single out, punish and exclude Planned Parenthood.” — U.S. District Judge J. Thomas Marten in news releases and in Twitter posts about defunding the group and touted the law as a victory for the anti-abortion movement. Marten, who was nominated to the federal bench by former President Bill Clinton in 1995, specifically noted in handing down his decision the floor statement referring to Planned Parenthood by the legislator who proposed the language at issue. The judge also noted that Republican Gov. Sam Brownback reportedly told to the state GOP caucus before the vote that Kansas would become only the second state in the nation, after Indiana, to “zero out funding of Planned Parenthood.” Planned Parenthood had argued that without the injunction, it would have lost $330,000 a year in federal funding and been forced to close its clinic in the western Kansas city of Hays. It contended its 5,700 patients
group supporting the change. Some public health experts predicted the change will promote the use of costlier long-acting contraceptives, such as hormonal implants. More reliable than the pill, they are gaining popularity in other economically advanced countries. As recently as the 1990s, many health insurance plans didn’t even cover birth control. Protests, court cases, and new state laws led to dramatic changes. Today, almost all plans cover prescription contraceptives — with varying copays. Medicaid, the health care program for lowincome people, also covers birth control. A government study last summer found that birth control use is virtually universal in the United States. Still, about half of all pregnancies are unplanned. Many are among women using some form of contraception, and forgetting to take the pill is a major reason. Preventing unwanted pregnancies is only one goal of the new requirement. Contraception can help make a woman’s next pregnancy healthier by spacing births far enough apart, generally 18 months to two years. Research links closely spaced births to a risk of such problems as prematurity, low birth
would face higher costs, longer wait or travel times for appointments and have less access to services. Planned Parenthood has sued to overturn the law, and Marten’s order was to remain in effect until the case is resolved. The Title X funding at issue targets low income individuals and helps pay for reproductive health care services such as contraception, cancer screenings and testing for sexually transmitted diseases. No federal funds are used for abortions. Planned Parenthood offers abortion services in Kansas only at its clinic in Overland Park, a Kansas City suburb, but it also has clinics in Wichita and Hays. The state contended the injunction was unnecessary because other entities could provide the same services Planned Parenthood offers in Wichita and Hays.
State sovereignty issue? Monday’s hearing was the first legal test of the statute. Planned Parenthood is challenging its constitutionality based in part on the Supremacy Clause, which prohibits states from imposing conditions of eligibility on federal programs that are not required by federal law. Kansas has defended the
weight, even autism. Other research has shown that even modest copays for medical care can discourage use. In a nod to social and religious conservatives, the rules issued Monday by Sebelius include a provision that would allow religious institutions to opt out of offering birth control coverage. However, many conservatives are supporting legislation by Rep. Jeff Fortenberry, R-Neb., that would codify a range of exceptions to the new health care law on religious and conscience grounds. “It’s a step in the right direction, but it’s not enough,” said Jeanne Monahan, a policy expert for the conservative Family Research Council. As it now stands, the conscience clause offers only a “fig leaf” of protection, she added, because it may not cover all faith-based organizations. Although the new women’s preventive services will be free of any additional charge to patients, somebody will have to pay. The cost will be spread among other people with health insurance, resulting in slightly higher premiums. That may be offset to some degree with savings from diseases prevented, or pregnancies that are planned to minimize any potential ill effects to the mother and baby.

before — is so vast it could hold everything else in the solar system, minus the sun. Scientists hope to learn more about planetary origins through Juno’s exploration of the giant gasfilled planet, a body far different from rocky Earth and Mars. “Look at it this way — it is a new era,” said Jim Green, NASA’s director of planetary science. “Humans plan to go beyond low-Earth orbit. When we do that, it’s not like ‘Star Trek.’ It’s not ‘go where no man has gone before.”’ Plunging deeper into space will require robotic scouts first, he said. Southwest Research Institute astrophysicist Scott Bolton, Juno’s principal investigator, said it’s also important for people to realize “NASA’s not going out of business.” “If we’re going to learn who we are and where we came from, and how the Earth works, we’ve got to keep doing these science missions, not just Juno,” Bolton said.
C APE C A N A V E R A L , F LA . — NASA’s upcoming mission to Jupiter can’t get much greener than this: a solar-powered, windmill-shaped spacecraft. The robotic explorer Juno is set to become the most distant probe ever powered by the sun. Juno is equipped with three tractor-trailer-size solar panels for its 2 billion-mile journey into the outer solar system. It will be launched Friday morning aboard an unmanned Atlas V rocket — barely two weeks after NASA’s final space shuttle flight. The shuttle’s demise is giving extra oomph to the $1.1 billion voyage to the largest and probably oldest planet in the solar system. It’s the first of three high-profile astronomy missions coming up for NASA in the next four months.

Quadriplegic man dies in skydiving accident KALISPELL, MONT. — A quadriplegic man with five years of skydiving experience died in a weekend skydiving accident in northwestern Montana, Flathead County officials said Monday. Sheriff Chuck Curry said Zack Fogle, 27, of Kingston, Wash., died Saturday afternoon when his parachute did not open during a jump at the 44th annual Lost Prairie Boogie, a 10-day skydiving event near Marion that typically draws hundreds of participants. Fogle had limited mobility in his extremities after being struck by a car in high school, but had a custom-built parachute with handles that were located where he could operate them with his hands, Undersheriff Jordan White said. Fogle had completed more than 125 jumps and had participated in the Lost Prairie Boogie before.

A CHILD REACTS AS SHE RECEIVES an immunization Monday at a food distribution center as she and others wait to be registered as refugees in Dadaab, Kenya. Dadaab, a camp designed for 90,000 people now houses around 440,000 refugees.
Somali refugees: No food to break Ramadan fast DADAAB, KENYA (AP) — As the Islamic holy month of Ramadan begins, Faduma Aden is fasting all day even though she doesn’t have enough food to celebrate with a sundown feast. The Somali mother of three, who fled starvation in her homeland, says she fasts because she fears God. Muslims around the world mark sundown during Ramadan with extravagant dinners after not eating from sunrise to sundown. That kind of nighttime celebration is unthinkable this year for most Somalis, who are enduring the worst famine in a generation. And even though Islam allows the ailing to eat, for many Somalis it’s a matter of faith to participate in Ramadan’s fast. “It hard for me to fast, but I did fast for fear of God,” said Aden, who is among tens of thousands who have made the arduous journey, often on foot, to this refugee camp in neighboring Kenya. Others, like Mohamed Mohamud Abdulle, are ashamed they don’t have food “to console the soul” at sundown after fasting all day. “How will I fast when I don’t have something to break it?” asked Abdulle. “All my family are hungry and I have nothing to feed them. I feel the hunger that forced me from my home has doubled here.” For much of the Muslim world, Ramadan this year falls at a time of political upheaval. Food prices typically spike during the Muslim religious month, and the elaborate dinners many in the Middle East put on to break
the daily fast drive a deep hole in household budgets. Fleeing Somalis say they have already been forced by famine to fast for weeks or months, without the end-ofday meal to regain their strength. “I cannot fast because I cannot get food to break it and eat before the morning,” said Nur Ahmed, a father of six at a camp for displaced people in the Somali capital, Mogadishu, whose wife died last year during childbirth. Sheik Ali Sheik Hussein, a mosque leader in Mogadishu, called it “worrying” that many Somalis cannot fast because they are already weak from hunger and don’t have food to regain their strength after sundown. “We have asked all Muslims to donate to help those dying from hunger,” he said. “Muslims should not be silent on this situation, so we shall help if Allah wills.” At a hospital run by the International Committee of the Red Cross in the Dadaab camp, clinician Muhammed Hussein breaks away from examining a patient to note that his Ramadan fast gives him greater understanding of the suffering of famine victims. “It gives you a lot of sympathy when you yourself feel hungry, you will understand the pain of someone who has not eaten... With this kind of severe malnutrition, people have no energy to walk, they have been walking from Kismayo in Somalia to this place. It gives you that heart to feel mercy for the people who are suffering.”
‘Credible lead’ surfaces in D.B. Cooper case By Pete Yost and MIke Baker Associated Press Writers
WASHINGTON — The FBI is investigating whether a dead man in the Pacific Northwest is D.B. Cooper, who hijacked a passenger jet in 1971 over Washington state and parachuted with $200,000 in ransom. Cooper has never been found. FBI agent Fred Gutt said Monday the bureau is following up a “credible” lead in the unsolved case and is focused on a suspect who died more than 10 years ago. Gutt said the bureau received a tip from a retired law enforcement source about the dead man possibly being Cooper. FBI agents requested personal effects of the possible suspect, who died of natural causes. The FBI is trying to find fingerprints or DNA on the dead man’s effects to compare with items the hijacker left behind. The FBI said three years ago that it found DNA evidence on the clip-on tie Cooper left on the plane before he jumped. Gutt said the FBI has already tested one item of the dead man’s belongings for fingerprints. It was not conclusive. They are now working with surviving family members to gather other items for further testing. The suspect is someone who has not been previously investigated, and Gutt said initial vetting supported the belief of the tipster. But he cautioned that the new lead
may not pan out and that investigators were still pursuing other possibilities. “Maybe this is just someone else who just happened to look like him and whose life story just kind of paralleled,” Gutt said. Gutt said the new lead is also promising because of the way it came to the FBI. The tipster initially discussed the case with a retired law enforcement off icer who then contacted the FBI. Only after the FBI contacted the witness directly did the person discuss the Cooper case with investigators. “They’re not seeking attention,” Gutt said. “To the contrary, they’re looking to avoid it.” Federal investigators have checked more than 1,000 leads since the suspect bailed out on Nov. 24, 1971, over the Pacific Northwest. The man who jumped gave his name as Dan Cooper and claimed shortly after takeoff in Portland, Ore., that he had a bomb, leading the flight crew to land the plane in Seattle, where passengers were exchanged for parachutes and ransom money. The flight then took off for Mexico with the suspect and flight crew on board. The hijacker parachuted from the plane after dark as it flew south, apparently over a rugged, wooded region of the Pacific Northwest. In 1980, a boy found several thousand dollars in $20 bills from the ransom decomposing along the Columbia River.
Leave it to the economy to stop a stock market rally. The Dow started the day up nearly 140 points after President Barack Obama and congressional leaders said Sunday that a deal had been reached to raise the nation’s borrowing limit and avoid a possible debt default. But another sign that the economy has slowed erased those early gains and took the Dow down as many as 145 points by midday. The Dow Jones industrial average ended the day with a loss of 10.75 points. It was the seventh day of declines for the blue-chip index.
Debt deal would have little effect on economy until 2014
By Christopher S. Rugaber Associated Press Writer
W A S H I N G T O N — The deal reached by Congress to raise the debt ceiling and cut more than $2 trillion in public spending should have only a minor impact on the economy for the next two years. Almost all the cuts would be made in 2014 or beyond.

Companies that work on Defense Department contracts could suffer, too. The stocks of Lockheed Martin Corp., General Dynamics Corp. and Raytheon Co. all sank about 1 percent Monday. If lawmakers fail to reach a deal on a second round of cuts, the Pentagon’s budget would be cut automatically by about $500 billion. That measure is designed as a threat, to make sure congressional negotiators have strong incentives to compromise. Delaying the deepest cuts buys time for the economy to recover. Right now, it can’t absorb shocks very well: Unemployment is still 9.2 percent, people are spending less, worker pay has stagnated, and economic growth is the slowest since the end of the recession in June 2009. Worries about the economy, including the weakest manufacturing in two years, were one reason the stock market couldn’t sustain a rally after the debt deal was struck. The market was flat Monday. The Federal Reserve meets next week. Economists will watch for any signals that the Fed is considering new steps to help the economy, such as re-investing its government bond holdings indefinitely to keep interest rates down. The debt deal could restore some confidence among individuals and businesses by removing the fear that the U.S. government would default on its debt for the first time, says Troy Davig, an economist at Barclays Capital. Overall, the deal could subtract about 0.2 percentage point from economic growth in 2012, Davig estimates. While that is a relatively light blow, the economy only grew at an annual rate of 1.3 percent in April, May and June.
Recognizing voices harder for dyslexics WASHINGTON — Pick up the phone and hear, “Hey, what’s up?” Chances are, those few words are enough to recognize who’s speaking — perhaps unless you have dyslexia. In a surprise discovery, researchers found adults with that reading disorder also have a hard time recognizing voices. The work isn’t just a curiosity. It fits with research to uncover the building blocks of literacy and how they can go wrong. The HEALTH eventual goal: To spot at-risk youngsters even before they open “Go, Dog, Go!” in kindergarten — instead of diagnosing dyslexia in a struggling second-grader. “Everybody is interested in understanding the root cause of dyslexia, so we can intervene early and do something about it,” says Massachusetts Institute of Technology cognitive neuroscientist John Gabrieli, senior author of the study published last week in the journal Science. Dyslexia is thought to affect 8 percent to 15 percent of Americans, who can have great difficulty reading and writing.

Parking perceptions Discussions about expanded downtown parking should include ways to change the area’s perception problem.
ometimes we wonder whether downtown parking was an issue even in the days when Massachusetts Street was lined with hitching posts instead of sawtooth parking spaces. It certainly seems it has been drawing concern for that long. Now, Lawrence city commissioners have another opportunity to address the issue. In the coming weeks, city commissioners are expected to discuss whether to add another level of parking to a planned garage that will be part of the Lawrence Public Library expansion. We hope that issue sparks a broader discussion about downtown parking. In particular, city leaders need to consider whether they are doing all they can to encourage motorists to use the parking that already exists in downtown. At the moment, studies indicate that downtown’s parking problem is mostly a perception problem. A parking spot along Massachusetts Street can be difficult to find on many days. The library parking garage won’t alleviate that shortage. But, as many frequent downtown visitors will tell you, there is ample parking at almost any time just one to two blocks off of Massachusetts Street. A Journal-World reporter recently found that even on Downtown Lawrence Sidewalk Sale Day, it was not difficult to find a parking spot within a 5-minute walk of nearly any destination in downtown. The city should do more to promote the fact that it is easy to park and walk in downtown Lawrence. Many times, the walk is less than a shopper would make in a mall. The city could do more with signs. Perhaps signs could be placed at the various city parking lots telling motorists that, “from here,” they are only about a 5-minute walk from the shops in the 800 block of Massachusetts Street, or whatever their destination may be. We have heard that when people are told how many minutes a walk may take, it is more palatable than being told how many blocks. None of this is to say that the city shouldn’t have a discussion about adding more parking to the library project. It may be good long-range planning to maximize parking in that area. More discussion and many more details are needed on that subject. It is disappointing that the discussion was not had during the broader 2012 city budget process. It would have been appropriate for downtown’s parking needs to have been ranked against other community needs. What will be even more disappointing is if the city moves ahead with the library parking garage issue without having a good discussion about how it can better use the parking it has. After all, the city garage at Ninth and New Hampshire streets is still underutilized. If the city doesn’t do something to change the perception that the only convenient parking in downtown is along Massachusetts Street, we can build all the garages we want and still never solve the perception problem.
Hispanic group urges immigration action When President Barack Obama spoke to a major U.S. Hispanic group last week about his unsuccessful efforts to change this country’s outdated immigration rules, many in the crowd broke out in a spontaneous chant: “Yes you can!” The chant at the annual convention of the National Council of La Raza in Washington, a mocking reminder of the president’s 2008 campaign slogan, marked a rare moment of confrontation between Obama and his Hispanic constituents. Obama got 67 percent of the Hispanic vote in 2008, and used to get warm welcomes from U.S. Hispanic audiences. Hispanic leaders are not happy with the Obama administration’s nearly 1 million deportations over the past three years, which they say is more than took place during former President George W. Bush’s eight years in office. And they are not buying the president’s line that he cannot do anything to change immigration rules because of the Republican Party’s hard-line anti-immigrant stands. According to Hispanic leaders, there are many things the president could do using his executive authority, like granting temporary immigration benefits to good students or army volunteers who were brought to the country when they were children. The Dream Act bill, which would grant a path to legalization to these students, has been blocked by Republicans in the Senate.
According to Hispanic “leaders, there are many
things the president could do using his executive authority, like granting temporary immigration benefits to good students or army volunteers who were brought to the country when they were children.” “We are disappointed that we have not seen the president do more to address the high level of deportations,” NCLR President Janet Murguia told me after the meeting. “We all agree that violent criminals should be deported, but we take issue with the fact that people who make real contributions to this country are being deported. We don’t think they should be the enforcement priority right now.” On the very day Obama was talking to the NCLR, I got a call from the Argentine consul in
Miami, who brought to my attention the case of an Argentine student facing imminent deportation. When I later talked to 23-yearold Miyen Spinelli, I couldn’t help wondering why the financially strapped U.S. government is spending time and money to deport young college graduates like him. Spinelli told me he has no criminal record, graduated high school in the top 15 percent of his class, got his B.A. degree in sports administration at St. Thomas University, and is preparing to do his master’s degree in international business. He paid for his studies with about $8,000 a year from his family’s savings, plus a soccer scholarship from his school. Shortly before graduation, during a trip to Maine for a soccer tournament, the car in which he was traveling — driven by a friend — was stopped by police. They were not speeding, nor had they violated any traffic law. The policeman said he had stopped them to check on the car’s Florida license plate. “He asked me for my papers, and then called the border patrol,” Spinelli told me. “They kept me six days in jail, and then gave me a deportation order for August 15, and put an electronic bracelet on my right ankle.” When his story appeared in The Miami Herald on July 26, immigration off icials gave Spinelli a one-year extension on his deportation order.

The developer of a proposed ski resort at Mont Bleu was seeking YEARS approval from the AGO Kansas Water IN 1986 Resources Division to use water from the Wakarusa River for the resort’s snow-making machines.

now hopes that, in the meantime, the Dream Act will pass. There are an estimated 825,000 foreign students in the United States who could benefit from the Dream Act. Most of them came to the country at a very young age. Some are top students in sciences and engineering, whose skills the U.S. badly needs. Other countries, such as Canada, France, Britain, Germany and Singapore, go out of their way to give legal visas to their best foreign students, or workers whose skills are needed. In Canada, about 36 percent of immigrant visas are given out annually in the “skilled visa” category, as opposed to only 6.5 percent in the United States, according to a recent Brookings Institution study. My opinion: Deporting qualified students and military volunteers is a waste of government time and money, goes against the U.S. tradition of being a country of immigrants, and slows down America’s creative energies at a time when other countries are benefitting from “brain gain” immigration strategies. Republican anti-immigration zealots are hurting America by opposing the Dream Act. But, until they come to their senses, Obama should use his executive powers to delay deportations of qualified foreign students. As the NCLR audience told him last week, Yes, he can!
Early retirement To the editor: So, once again we have the proposal to have an early retirement for state employees which will help reduce the work force by attrition or allow the filling of positions by those making a much lower rate. This also shifts the state’s responsibility to pay from the financially burdened state to the currently underfunded Kansas Public Employees Retirement system. During the Bennett and Carlin administrations, the budget got balanced by withholding the “employer’s contribution” and promising to make it up later. The withheld contributions were never replaced — to do so now will cost more. While the early retirement proposals may help some in the short run, it is highly questionable whether it is a good solution in the long term. Ultimately, it will be the Legislature rather than the governor, budget division or any negotiating team that will have to make the decision. Earl Haehl, Lawrence
lowered public revenues is what those of us who do have discretionary income are going to do with it. Are we going to buy a new iPad or decide whether to make the second car a Corolla or a Camry or instead kick in a little more for the public education fund or add a few extra bucks to the envelope going around for cousin Sally who’s going to retire. I’m personally getting a little tired of Papa Brownback, the current patriarch of Kansas. This “no money for pictures on the walls” schtick is wearing thin. Do the rest of us who don’t share this stingy vision of the world have a say in this family or not? I say we put someone in charge who will ask for a little more from those of us who can afford it. Educating our kids so they can tell the difference between us and those poor folks in Greece might even be worth more to me in the long run than upgrading my Smartphone. But the main thing is, I liked things better when we were all in this together and we knew how good we had it. I say it’s time for a family meeting. Bert Haverkate-Ens, Lawrence
Out of balance
To the editor: If you’re going to compare our government’s budget to a household, then Uncle Fox is blowing smoke. Yes, he hates Uncle Obama. But however Uncle Obama wants to spend the family’s money, we’re not broke. Some of us are overextended. Some of us have lost their jobs. But most of us are working, and many of us are doing very well by comparison with folks in other families in the neighborhood. The only relevant question in this time of
To the editor: Steve Six was seen as the right man for the judgeship, including among those so judging, many Republicans. Now he is seen as too far left for our far right senators to do the job in the right manner. Judges are supposed to be near the center, but the far right senators of Kansas cannot find a way to stop putting a spin to the right on all they do and want judged. It is time to stop spinning to the right in righteousness and look straight ahead and maybe see that, in the peripheral vision on
your left side, there is some truth and honesty there, even if your own sense of balance between right and left is not there. Leo T. Bistak, Lawrence
Stirring performance To the editor: Once again, the Lawrence Arts Center and the Summer Youth Theater directed by Ric Averill in their masterful production of Leonard Bernstein’s “West Side Story” of the middle of the 20th century have brought us to consider universal thoughts in our century. We were swept away by the entire cast performing as an ensemble, now acting, now dancing, now singing, now quickening in each member of the audience now this, now that memory that brought tears to our eyes and chuckles in our chests. Our enthusiastic standing ovation was an embrace to you all. “West Side Story” is one more wrenching story of our collective inhumanity one to another, perhaps even back to prehistoric times. How not to think of the senseless oppositions of Jets and Sharks, Donkeys and Elephants, and yet a strong Maria rising out of the shambles brought about by the clash between “opposing houses.” How not to experience, through your beautiful and moving performances, what folks felt in our sister city in Greece several thousand years ago in a large stone theater under the constant blaze of the sun and saw through tears what Aristotle calls a cleansing of the soul or “catharsis.” We will remember you and we look forward to what you will become.

Mary Magdalan Los Angeles musician Mary Magdalan swings by The Bottleneck, 737 N.H., tonight, bringing with her the kind of tortured soul back story that makes it a wonder that the performer is making music at all. Wisely, Magdalan has woven her story of addiction, abuse and familial instability into her music and persona, as it would have likely consumed her otherwise. What remains is a dark, dirty electronic music that sounds like Paul Oakenfeld and Lady Sovereign with guest spots from Deadmau5 and Lady Gaga. She is joined by Freesol, a much lighter counter to Magdalan. Freesol is far more traditional, in terms of both song structure and delivery, blending electronic elements, hip-hop lyricism and samples with live instrumentation.

Royals, Jayhawks Tight end similar hopes to brew The Kansas City Royals are 46-62, in last place in the AL Central and are once again in line to have a top-five pick in next year’s MLB Draft. But look a little deeper, and you’ll see K.C. might not be as far from respectability as it appears. As of Monday, the Royals had only been outscored by 47 runs. Last year on Aug. 1, K.C.’s run differential was minus-109. In fact, there have been only two times in the last 10 years that K.C.’s run differential was better on Aug. 1 than it is this year. The average differential during that time span was minus-96. The point? It’s not easy for teams to make a monumental leap in one season. The Royals have improved by 62 runs this season. If they make a similar improvement next season (which is possible with the young players who are developing), their run differential would be about even. And if that happened, the Royals would have a legitimate shot at a .500 record — something that hasn’t happened since 2003. It’s the same type of analysis that makes me nervous for the Kansas football team in 2011. Though the Jayhawks went 39 last year, what had to be more discouraging for coaches was how bad their losses were. If you take out the miracle victory against Colorado — remember, KU was down 28 in the fourth quarter — the Jayhawks had no Big 12 games they kept within single digits. KU’s closest losses were against Iowa State (28-16) and Nebraska (20-3). Other games were out of reach in a hurry. In half of their Big 12 games, the Jayhawks were beaten by 34 points or more. Against Kansas State and Baylor, KU lost by a combined 100 points. It all made for an unsightly point differential at the end of the season. In Big 12 play, KU was outscored by 219 (335-116) — the worst conference point differential since Baylor in 2007. To compare, Texas Tech had the second-worst Big 12 point differential in 2010, and the Red Raiders were only outscored by 80 (279-199). The Jayhawks have a lot of ground to make up, and that’s even if they get significant contribution from their newcomers. Only eight teams in Big 12 history had a worse point differential than KU did last season. Those teams combined to go 12-52 in conference play during their next year. Add in the fact that KU’s conference schedule gets tougher — dropping Nebraska and Colorado from last year’s slate to add Texas Tech, Texas and Oklahoma — and it’s hard to envision KU improving its record from 2010, even with what should be an improved team. It’s worth noting KU has bucked this statistical trend before. Back in 2002, KU was outscored by 255 (380-125) in conference play during coach Mark Mangino’s first season. In his second year — sound familiar? — KU showed significant improvement, going 3-5 in Big 12 play while only getting outscored by 38 in conference games (247-209). The Jayhawks made a bowl game that year, losing, 56-26, to N.C. State to finish 6-7 overall. It’s more likely that we see the 2011 Jayhawks improve incrementally — much like the Royals are doing this year. Before KU can hope to win Big 12 games, it has to show it can stay close in them.

By now, Kansas University football fans are well aware of how to pronounce senior tight end Tim Biere’s last name. It’s “BEER-ee,” of course, but for the first couple of years the Omaha, Neb., native was in Lawrence, he heard a handful of mispronounced versions. Beer, BEER-ray and be-YEAR-ee were tossed out as possible pronunciations until Biere’s play on the field inspired people to learn how to say it correctly. The interesting thing about those mispronunciations, especially the first one, is that Biere’s name actually means beer in some languages. “I’m not really sure of the history,” said Biere, who admits he’s no brewmaster. “I know it means ‘beer,’ and I’ve known people who’ve studied abroad and come back and said they’ve seen it everywhere. People say He’s good at they’ve seen it in France, but I blocking and don’t think I have any French in my background.” catching the According to ancestry.com, football, and he is the name Biere is a variant of the playing with passion. German surname Bier, meanThat is really what I ing ale. Back home in Omaha, like to see.” Biere’s mom has a handful of beer posters hanging in the — KU coach Turner Gill, family’s basement, each of on tight end Tim Biere which has the word/surname on it to celebrate their heritage. While Biere was exposed to the meaning of his last name at an early age, he said recently that he’d still like to do some digging into the family tree to learn a little more about its history. Learning more about Biere’s game is not necessary for those who have followed KU football for the past few years. Pegged as an athletic and reliable pass-catching tight end when he arrived in 2008, Biere has done nothing but back that claim up during his Kansas career. He arrived as the 19th-best tight end prospect in the nation, choosing KU over offers from Nebraska, Colorado State, Kansas State and Ohio. Although the statistics he has racked up during his first three seasons at KU — 476 yards and four TDs on 39 receptions in 35 games — have not brought to mind names such as Shannon Sharpe or Tony Gonzalez, Biere’s production has been notable and his improvement steady in all areas. While the coach who recruited him proved he understood that by putting Biere on the field as a true freshman, the coach who inherited him has done so with words. “Tim Biere has stood out from a consistency standpoint,” KU coach Turner Gill said in April. “He’s good at blocking and catching the football, and he is playing with passion. That is really what I like to see.” Three years ago, Biere arrived in Lawrence during one of the highest points in KU football history. The Jayhawks were coming off of a 12-1 season and an Orange Bowl-championship run, and Biere expected similar results throughout his career. During his first season, in which he played in 12 games and caught six passes for 65 yards from Todd Reesing, arguably the greatest QB in KU history, the Jayhawks advanced to the Insight Bowl and pounded Minnesota for their second bowl victory in two seasons.

Big 12 hooks ’Horns’ prep plans OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Big 12 Conference athletic directors voted Monday to prohibit the broadcast of any high school sporting events on the newly created Longhorn Network for at least the next year. The conference announced that the ADs voted unanimously to forbid such content on any medium branded as a conference or member institution platform. Controversy had been stirred up at the suggestion that Texas could show games featuring players it was recruiting on its network set to launch this month. The athletic directors instituted a one-year moratorium and decided that it would not be lifted unless the NCAA rules that such content would be permissible. The ADs also suggested that the Big 12’s board of directors should encourage the NCAA to impose a similar one-year moratorium across the country. The ADs also decided that any conference game aired on the Longhorn Network would require approval of the conference and the opposing school. “As we’ve said, we recognize the need for ongoing discussion to properly address the questions raised by the conference. Longhorn Network will televise unprecedented coverage of more than 200 UT athletics events annually plus a variety of dynamic, relevant programming,” ESPN spokeswoman Keri Potts said in a statement. Texas is the only Big 12 school with a network that qualifies so far, although Texas A&M and Oklahoma have discussed putting one together. The Longhorn Network — created through a 20-year, $300 million deal with ESPN — is set to launch Aug. 26. Last week at Pinkel Big 12 media days, Missouri coach Gary Pinkel said it was “a lack of common sense there to think that the network, the university network, can have high school games.” “I think that all the NCAA recruiting rules are really directed toward unfair advantage, and I think being able to broadcast high school games on my branded network probably creates an advantage for me over others,” Oklahoma State University President Burns Hargis said last week. “So, I don’t think that’s in the best interests of the conference to do that.” Texas athletic director DeLoss Dodds has also raised the possibility that the network could air games on the channel, but remove the Longhorn brand to limit the impact on recruiting. The ability to start its own network helped keep Texas in the Big 12 after being courted by the Pac10 last summer. The expanded Pac12 announced its own nationwide network last week, along with six regional networks that will be shared by two schools apiece.
Chiefs’ training-camp roster shaping up ST. J OSEPH , M O. (AP) — Barry Richardson signed his restricted free-agent tender with the Kansas City Chiefs on Monday, while the team added free-agent linebacker Brandon Siler to help shore up the defense. Bit by bit, general manager Scott Pioli is putting the finishing touches on his training-camp roster. Still missing after Day Four of practice were outside linebacker Tamba Hali, the Chiefs’ top pass rusher from a year ago, and third-
round draft pick Justin Houston, who is expected to compete with Andy Studebaker for the other outside spot. There was no word when either would arrive, though the coaching staff seemed unconcerned. “I feel like we are gaining a little traction here,” coach Todd Haley said before an afternoon practice at Missouri Western State University, where temperatures Mon-
day afternoon climbed into the triple digits. The team spent about 75 minutes in shoulder pads before f inishing their afternoon work in only helmets. “Get those first couple of days out of the way,” Haley added in the cool confines of the indoor training center. “Not that we’re changing a whole bunch, or a whole lot has changed, but we’re gaining a little traction here.”
It’ll help when Haley has his full squad on the field. The Chiefs have today off from practice before an evening workout Wednesday.

• Royals return home, play host to Orioles
Agent: WR Moss retiring from NFL M A N K A T O , M INN . (AP ) — Randy Moss dominated when he wanted to dominate. He scored when he wanted to score, cooperated when he wanted to cooperate and acted out when he wanted to act out. Moss spent 13 seasons doing things on his own terms, which is why perhaps the loudest career the NFL has ever seen — both in terms of the roars he induced on the field and the aggravation he caused off it — ended so quietly on Monday. No farewell speech from maybe the most physically gifted receiver to don a helmet. No tearful goodbye from a record-setting per-
former who changed the way defense is played in the NFL. Just a one-sentence statement from his agent saying one of the most colorful careers in league history was over. “Randy has weighed his options and conMoss sidered the offers and has decided to retire,” Joel Segal said on Monday. It was vintage Moss, a revolutionary talent who was never very much interested in doing things the conventional way.
Ten storylines as college football nears opening day By Chris Dufresne Los Angeles Times
Ten things you may, or may not, know in advance of the 2011 college football season: 1. A “Whoa Nellie” rule change takes effect this year that could take away a game-winning touchdown by your favorite player. Excessive celebrations by players before they reach the end zone will be ruled “unsportsmanlike conduct” and marked from the spot of infraction, negating the points. “Well,” Arizona State coach Dennis Erickson said, “If they want to stop the excessive celebration, this is the rule that will do it. I guarantee you that.” 2. Boise State can no longer wear allblue uniforms for conference home games. It’s the initiation fee Boise State paid for leaving the Western Athletic Conference for the Mountain West Conference. Coaches complained the blue uniforms on Boise State’s blue field made it difficult to watch film. Last year, to prove it was the football more than the uniforms, Boise State donned an orange combination for Fresno State and won, 51-0. 3. Arkansas last year became the first Southeastern Conference team to lose to Ohio State in a bowl game. Because of self-imposed sanctions, the Buckeyes later vacated their Sugar Bowl victory over the Razorbacks. Arkansas coach Bobby Petrino, however, believes you can’t erase history. “We had every chance to win that game,” he said of the 31-26 loss. “We got beat on the field.” 4. Colorado has lost 18 consecutive games outside the state. The Buffaloes’ last border-cross victory was a 31-26 win over Texas Tech on Oct. 27, 2007. Colorado will be favored to lose its 19th consecutive in the season opener at Hawaii. 5. Don’t bother gathering around your mobile device to watch college ball Jan.1 because there are no games. The bowls have moved off their traditional hub date because the NFL has a full slate of Sunday games. The Rose Bowl, historically, has always played Jan. 2 when Jan. 1 falls on a Sunday. 6. Arizona State’s projected starting linebacker unit — Vontaze Burfict, Brandon Magee and Shelly Lyons — all attended Southern California’s Corona Centennial High. 7. Take that, Texas Christian. The Horned Frogs were supposed to play host to Mountain West newcomer Boise State on Nov. 12, but the game was switched to Boise after Texas Christian announced it was leaving next year for the Big East Conference. Why do the Texas Christian turncoats any favors? 8. What’s the problem? Utah, which joins the Pacific 12 Conference this year, owns a 7-3 record against the Pac-10 since 2003. Those games, though, were spread out over years. Let’s see how the Utes handle the week-to-week grind of playing in a major Bowl Championship Series conference. 9. Buy better binoculars. The view from “Tightwad Hill” in Berkeley will be worse than ever for California fans this season because the Golden Bears have moved home games to San Francisco’s AT&T Park while Memorial Stadium undergoes major renovations. 10. Penn State coach Joe Paterno, who turns 85 in December, recently said he’d like to coach another four years. What’s the rush? On Sept. 16, 1960, Amos Alonzo Stagg announced he was retiring as coach at Stockton Junior College. Stagg was 98.
Fans were awed by his once-ina-generation blend of size, speed and intelligence. Teammates were charmed by the charisma he showed behind closed doors and coaches were often infuriated by his boorish antics and lack of respect for authority. “I don’t know if anybody can totally pin down who Randy Moss is,” Tim DiPiero, one of Moss’ first agents, said last year. If this indeed is the end for Moss, he leaves the game with some of the gaudiest statistics posted by a receiver. His 153 touchdowns are tied with Terrell Owens for second on the career list, and he’s also fifth in yards (14,858) and
tied with Hines Ward for eighth in receptions (954). “In a lot of ways, he was the Michael Jordan of offenses in our league,” Vikings coach Leslie Frazier said. “He was a special player for a long, long time.” Those numbers, and his status as perhaps the best deep threat in NFL history, will make him a strong candidate for the Hall of Fame. But voters will also be weighing those achievements and his six Pro Bowl seasons against a history of mailing in performances and a reputation as a coach killer. As Moss himself famously said: “I play when I want to play.”

Stern: Nothing encouraging in talks NEW YORK — David Stern returned to the bargaining table Monday and said “nothing” gave him reason for encouragement. And for that, the NBA Commissioner pointed the blame in one place. “I don’t feel optimistic about the players’ willingness to engage in a serious way,” Stern said. So the first meeting to include leadership from owners and players since the lockout began exactly a month ago produced nothing new — except blame. A downcast Stern, who long maintained he was optimistic during this collective bargaining process, said that was no longer the case. He added nothing had changed since the last meeting on June 30, hours before the old deal expired, and said he doesn’t feel players are bargaining in good faith. Players contend that although owners insist they are committed to making a deal, their proposals say otherwise. Neither side offered a new one Monday, exactly three months before the Nov. 1 scheduled opening of the regular season that seems more in doubt than ever.
In an email to the Associated Press on Monday, Umenyiora says he is frustrated some people are criticizing him because he wants the team to rework a contract that will pay him slightly more than $7 million over the next two seasons. The Giants have refused to redo Umenyiora’s deal. They have given his agents permission to work out a trade for the 29-year-old who tied for the team high with 111⁄2 sacks and had a league-high 10 forced fumbles last year.
Raiders sign Wimbley for $48M NAPA, CALIF. — The Oakland Raiders spent big to lock up one of their own key players, signing a five-year, $48 million contract with linebacker Kamerion Wimbley on Monday that gives the team more room under the salary cap and Wimbley $29 million in guarantees.

DE Taylor rejoins Dolphins MIAMI — At the start of a news conference hailing Jason Taylor’s return to the Miami Dolphins, he introduced himself as a third-round draft pick from Akron — which he was in 1997. Fourteen years later, Taylor seeks a few more sacks and that elusive first Super Bowl ring. He’ll try for them in the uniform he has worn most of his career. The NFL’s active career sacks leader, who became a free agent when the New York Jets released him in March, signed Monday to rejoin the Dolphins.
Big Ben to restructure contract PITTSBURGH — Ben Roethlisberger is doing his part to help the Pittsburgh Steelers get under the salary cap. The veteran quarterback has agreed to restructure his contract to help the defending AFC champions get under the $120.4 million cap. Ryan Tollner, Roethlisberger’s agent, said the team approached the two-time Super Bowl winner about the deal, but added it would not affect the length or the money involved in the eight-year, $102 million deal the quarterback signed in 2008.
Giants refuse to rework DE’s deal EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — Still hoping there’s a chance he will play for the New York Giants, two-time Pro Bowl defensive end Osi Umenyiora is annoyed he is being portrayed as a bad guy for asking the team to renegotiate his contract.
Giants place Zito back on DL SAN FRANCISCO — Barry Zito is headed back to the disabled list. Giants manager Bruce Bochy told the Associated Press of the decision before his NL West-leading San Francisco team opened a 10-game homestand Monday night with the first of three games against second-place Arizona.
Jimenez to join Tribe Wednesday BOSTON — Cleveland manager Manny Acta said Monday that Ubaldo Jimenez is scheduled to join the team Wednesday in Boston and make his first start two days later. Jimenez, one of the top acquisitions at the non-waiver trade deadline, was acquired Saturday from Colorado for four minor-leaguers, including two highly touted pitching prospects.
Carrasco suspended six games CLEVELAND — Cleveland Indians pitcher Carlos Carrasco has been suspended six games and fined for throwing at Kansas City’s Billy Butler. Carrasco was ejected in the fourth inning of Friday night’s game after he threw a ball at Butler’s head. Carrasco had just given up a grand slam to Melky Cabrera and took out his frustration on Butler, who managed to avoid the rising fastball. The Indians said Monday that Carrasco will appeal his suspension and undisclosed fine and plans to start Wednesday night in Boston. Carrasco said he was upset that Cabrera stood at home plate and admired his homer, but denied the pitch to Butler was intentional.

THE QUOTE “His career obituary is a complicated one because of the many layers and tentacles. He was a superstar who was both loved and loathed, often simultaneously.” — Chip Scoggins, in the Minneapolis Tribune, on Randy Moss
TODAY IN SPORTS 1996 — Down to her final long jump attempt and fighting an injured hamstring, Jackie Joyner-Kersee leaps out of sixth place and ends her Olympic career with a bronze medal. Joyner Kersee jumps 22 feet, 113⁄4 inches for her sixth Olympic medal. 1998 — Brandie Burton closes with an even-par 72 for a tournament-record 18under 270 and holds on to win the du Maurier Classic by one stroke over Annika Sorenstam. It’s the lowest score in relation to par at a women’s major, breaking Betsy King’s 17-under 267 in the 1992 LPGA Championship.

KU offers Texas prep ————
Forte’s father former football Jayhawk J-W Staff Report
Kansas University’s basketball team has offered a scholarship to Phil Forte, a 5-foot11, 180-pound senior-to-be from Marcus High in Flower Mound, Texas, jayhawkslant.com reported Monday. Forte, who is the son of former KU football lineman Phil Forte, averaged 16.8 points, 3.2 rebounds and 1.7 assists per game last season. He hit 3.7 threes per game.
Currently unranked, Forte is being recruited by KU, Iowa, USC, Kansas State, Villanova, Oklahoma State, SMU, TCU, Texas Tech and others. “Kansas has been my dream school since I was little,” Forte told Rivals.com. He indicated he will visit KU and four other schools this fall. “Both of my parents went to Kansas and my dad played football at Kansas, so I grew up a huge Kansas fan.” Forte’s Texas Assault and high school teammate, No. 24-
rated Marcus Smart, also has KU on his list. Smart, a 6-4 combo guard, and Forte recently helped Texas Assault to a 93-78 victory over Shabazz Muhammad’s Dream Vision team in the finals of the adidas Super 64 tournament. Smart had 28 points and 18 boards in that game. “Forte, a tough combo guard, knocked down shots from all over and played tough defense,” Rivals.com analyst Eric Bossi wrote after that game.

CHIEFS WIDE RECEIVER DWAYNE BOWE, RIGHT, gets hydrated with help from a trainer during training camp Monday in St. Joseph, Mo.
Chiefs “I’m really anxious, and I know they are, to get out there and get with their teammates on the field, and I know that will be a boost for everyone,” Haley said. “We’re really kind of short everywhere right now because of the guys we have sitting on the side.” Siler spent the past four seasons with the AFC Westrival San Diego Chargers, where he played 63 games and made 13 starts during the regular season and playoffs. He’s
known for his ability to stuff the run, something that the Chiefs struggled to do early last season, and could pair well with Derrick Johnson on the inside. The 6-foot-2, 239-pound Siler, a former seventh-round draft pick out of Florida, also had two interceptions and three sacks during his time with the Chargers. “We’ve seen him for a couple years and he’s a guy who was an active part of San Diego,” Haley said. “I know everybody was excited about bringing him in here. He will add to the competition at the insider ‘backer spot. “He’s a guy who under-

With just one season — 12 guaranteed games, if anything in college football can be guaranteed — remaining in his career, Biere wants one more run at the postseason more than anything else. “Honestly, going to a bowl game would end it on a good note,” Biere said last week at Big 12 media days in Dallas. “We went to the Insight Bowl my freshman year, and bowl games are an awesome experience. “The last couple years have been pretty tough. Last year, we won one game in the conference. The year before that we won one game (in Big 12 play). So to be competitive

But he’s not worrying about what anyone else thinks and, true to his team’s slogan, he believes that capping his career in a bowl game is within reach. “I definitely think it’s possible,” Biere said. “Especially when you look at how spring ball went this year
stands the division, what’s going on,” Haley said. “He’s a big, good-looking guy.” Richardson is coming off a breakthrough season in which he started 16 games between the two tackle spots because of injuries. He filled in on the right side when Ryan O’Callaghan hurt his groin in the preseason and also started once at left tackle in place of an injured Branden Albert. The Chiefs had placed a second-round tender on Richardson. His signing leaves cornerback Brandon Carr as the only restricted free agent without a contract. Kansas City placed a firstround tender on him.

Kansas rowing assistant promoted J-W Staff Reports
Former Kansas University rower Emily Martin was named assistant coach/recruiting coordinator for the Jayhawks’ rowing team on Monday. The Wellington native spent the last two years as a
graduate assistant after competing for the Jayhawks from 2006-2009. She served as a team captain during her senior year. During her junior and senior years, Martin was a member of the first varsity eight boat for every race, including the South-Central regionals
where the team set a school record for 2000 meters (6:26.2). Following the 2008 season, Martin was named the team’s most improved oarswoman. She also was named to the Big 12 commissioner’s and athletic director’s honor rolls.

offensive. But I hate feeling I have to hang out with guys when I know their intentions, and I end up miserable waiting for them to make a move, knowing I’ll have to shut them down. Lately, when a guy asks me to hang out with him, I claim to be busy. How do I make it obvious that I’m not interested? I don’t flirt. I don’t wear low-cut shirts or draw attention to myself that way.

However, she may be unwilling to leave him, regardless of his faults, because she doesn’t want to be alone. Right now, the situation seems unpleasant, but not threatening. Jenny needs her family close by to keep an eye on things and intercede if the relationship deteriorates. Dear Annie: I am a 16-yearold girl and a junior in high school. I get great grades and am athletic and friendly. I have a lot of guy friends. They are funny and relaxed and don’t gossip as much as the girls.

Skip ‘Money’ and run to another show The new hybrid drama/reality series “Take the Money and Run” (8 p.m., ABC) must have seemed like a good idea to somebody when it was dreamed up. Jerry Bruckheimer and company, the producers of “The Amazing Race” and “CSI,” mangle genres here. Two brothers are given a briefcase filled with cash and told they have 60 minutes to hide it. If nobody can find it in 48 hours, the loot is theirs to keep. At the end of their hour, they’re taken to what looks like a jail, locked up and told they have to face a team of interrogators. They’re obviously not in a real prison, or facing a real police grilling, so the decision to make it look “real” is a curious one. Viewers are willing to suspend disbelief and assign real dramatic tension to shows like “The Closer” or “Law & Order,” made-up stories featuring good acting. And we’re willing to give ourselves over to the high stakes of “Survivor” or an NFL game. But in blending a game-like scenario with a realistic- looking cops-and-robbers setting, “Take” makes everything look fake and robs the situation of any actual stakes. As a television critic and as a viewer, I have a fairly sensitive “Why Should I Care?” alarm. In this case, it started ringing right away. ● People love lists and apparently enjoy being told the things they should do before they die. So the new weekly series “50 Documentaries To See Before You Die” (8 p.m., Current) should be a favorite. Over five weeks, Morgan Spurlock (“Super Size Me”) reviews the best nonfiction movies of the modern era, from “Hoop Dreams” to “Paris Is Burning” to “Brother’s Keeper” and “Dogtown and ZBoys.” ● Some of the films celebrated by Spurlock probably first appeared on television on “POV” (9 p.m., PBS). Tonight that documentary series offers “Steam of Life,” an exploration of the special relationship between Scandinavians and their saunas. Both haunting and melancholy (these are Scandinavians after all!) and often amusingly quirky, “Steam” is a decidedly Finnish take on “Men of a Certain Age,” a look at the ways men converse, or fail to communicate, while sitting naked together in extreme heat.
Tonight’s other highlights ● If you confuse “Hell’s Kitchen” (7 p.m., Fox) and “MasterChef” (8 p.m., Fox), you’re not alone. ● “Live From Lincoln Center” (7 p.m., PBS, check local listings) attends the opening night of the Mostly Mozart Festival. ● Live performances on “America’s Got Talent” (8 p.m., NBC). ● “Billy the Exterminator” (8 p.m., A&E) enters a new season. ● Local bank customers held hostage on “Memphis Beat” (8 p.m., TNT). ● Undercover with a fetching Egyptologist on “White Collar” (8 p.m., USA). ● Rebecca’s rash decision has consequences on “Combat Hospital” (9 p.m., ABC). ● A rat cleanup leads to even dirtier work on “True Grime” (9 p.m., ID). ● A professor’s life as a spy emerges on “Covert Affairs” (9 p.m., USA).

attracted to you, it helps to decide which ones are worth your time and how to gracefully extricate yourself from the others. It is generally safer to hang out in groups of both males and females. If you don’t wish to spend time with a particular guy, it’s OK to say you are busy or, “Thanks, but no.” And it is not offensive to tell a persistent suitor that you just want to be friends.
JACQUELINE BIGAR’S STARS For Tuesday, Aug. 2: This year, work on clarity and direction. Misunderstandings seem to happen often. You will become an expert at preventing them from happening.

Dear Annie: A year ago, my 73-year-old sister, “Jenny,” married a man she barely knew. He had been married three times before, and she was aware that he had problems. Being a nurturing person, she thought she could help him. They live off of his Social Security and my sister’s pension checks. They are now buying a house, and her husband has some medical expenses, so things are tight. In addition, Jenny cannot sleep with him because he has apnea and won’t do anything about it. He also has an anger problem and has yelled at Jenny a couple of times. He has a sexual addiction and has made passes at three people I know of, including Jenny’s granddaughter. We haven’t told Jenny about that, but her children are encouraging their mother to leave this man. Jenny is diabetic and has some short-term memory loss. We are concerned about her future. Her husband shows signs of wanting to isolate her from her family and friends. She told me she would like to get out of this marriage, but he has attempted suicide in the past, and she feels responsible for his safety. Should we tell Jenny about his infidelities? We don’t really see much hope in his changing. — Worried Sister in Memphis Dear Memphis: We doubt

Indians 9, Red Sox 6 BOSTON — Cleveland manager Manny Acta’s pregame lesson about Fenway Park’s quirky angles and dimensions certainly couldn’t cover what Asdrubal Cabrera’s homer did. Cabrera’s second two-run homer of the game, originally ruled a single off the short wall in right field and overturned by replay review, broke an eighth-inning tie and lifted the Indians to a victory over Boston on Monday night. “It might be the only park,” Cabrera said when asked if he thought his homer would have been out in any other ballpark. Travis Hafner homered after Cabrera’s first of the game as the Indians won for just the third time in their last 11 games.

CLEVELAND’S ASDURBAL CABRERA, RIGHT, CELEBRATES his two-run home run with Jason Kipnis in the eighth inning against Boston. Umpires reviewed the drive to right field on video replay to confirm it was a home run, and the Indians beat the Red Sox, 9-6, on Monday in Boston. Yankees 3, White Sox 2 C H I C A G O — CC Sabathia pitched eight strong innings to earn his major-league-best 16th victory, and New York beat Chicago for its fourth consecutive victory. Sabathia allowed two runs and 10 hits, matching a season high, but managed to wiggle out of trouble all night as the White Sox struggled to score without injured slugger Paul Konerko. They put the tying
run in scoring position in the fifth, sixth and seventh and came away with nothing each time. Sabathia (16-5) improved to 9-1 with a 1.76 ERA in his last 10 starts, burnishing his credentials for a second AL Cy Young Award. The big lefthander has pitched at least six innings in each of his last 21 outings. Mariano Rivera pitched a perfect ninth for his 28th save.
