Kobach: Photo ID law likely to boost voter turnout By Scott Rothschild

TOPEKA — Critics of requiring photo ID to vote say such laws suppress voting, especially among the elderly and people with low incomes.


But Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach said Thursday the Kansas photo ID law that he shepherded through the Legislature may increase voter participation in next Tuesday’s Republican and Democratic primaries.

That is because, he said, his office’s photo ID campaign to educate voters about the law has raised the visibility of the election, which will be the first statewide test of the law. He added, “You probably have some voters who are

anxious to see how the new law works and maybe some voters who actually are excited about the new law and want to participate. So, I think the photo ID law is probably elevating turnout, slightly.” But Ernestine Krehbiel,

president of the League of Women Voters-Kansas, disagreed. Krehbiel said she is concerned that elderly voters who don’t have driver’s licenses or other forms of Please see KOBACH, page 2A

As they say in the sports world: Game on. If Lawrence indeed does build a nearly 180,000-square-foot fieldhouse facility to attract big-dollar youth sports, be assured it will need to lace up its shoelaces tight to take on the competition. Prosperous Johnson County already has two large, multicourt facilities, and the developers of the Legends shopping area in Wyandotte County have proposed building a youth fieldhouse in Wichita as part of a 400-acre retail complex. In addition to the competition, Lawrence also may have to face a harsh reality in the business: On-court success doesn’t always equate to direct financial success. Fieldhouse USA in Frisco, Texas — believed to be the largest youth fieldhouse in the country — has attracted large crowds, but by late 2011 its private operator had fallen nearly $1 million behind in lease payments to the city of Frisco because of unexpected operational costs. In other words, if the city is looking for a riskfree venture, this isn’t it, said Roger Morningstar, who used to own a private Lawrence-based sports fieldhouse — Sport-2-Sport — and is the organizer of one of the largest youth basketball tournaments in the

THE CITY HAS PLACED this new donation meter in the 800 block of Massachusetts Street for charitable contributions.

The idea of trying to persuade downtown pedestrians to feed special “donation meters” instead of giving spare change to panhandlers is now up and running in downtown Lawrence. Thus far, early results suggest the city and downtown leaders still have some work to do in spreading the word. In mid-June, city crews installed six donation meters at the mid-block crossings along Massachusetts Street between Seventh and 10th streets. During the most recent 30-day collection period, the city collected $51.59 from the meters, which was donated to the Lawrence Community Shelter.

Whatever the financial totals are, leaders at the Lawrence Community Shelter are pleased with the effort. “The idea is to give people an alternative,” said Loring Henderson, director of the shelter. “It is a positive way to try to help out with the issue of homelessness.” It also sends a message, Henderson said, that many leaders believe supporting panhandling is an unwise use of people’s funds. The donation meters — which are just used parking meters that have a special paint scheme — ensure that when people give their spare change, the money is going to programs to fight homelessness. “We don’t support the idea of Please see METERS, page 2A

26 charges against Planned Parenthood dropped By John Hanna Associated Press

TOPEKA — A Kansas judge on Thursday dismissed 26 misdemeanor charges against a Kansas City-area Planned Parenthood clinic, honoring a prosecutor’s request to further narrow a criminal case over allegations the clinic performed illegal late-term abortions. Johnson County District Attorney Steve Howe confirmed Thursday night that District Judge Stephen Tatum signed an order in the afternoon at Howe’s request. Tatum’s action is noted in online court records, but without details. Attorneys for the Planned Parenthood clinic in Overland Park had requested in March to have the same charges dismissed. The clinic’s attorneys argued that the charges — covering 13 abortions in 2003 — were filed beyond a two-year deadline for pursuing charges in effect when the pregnancies were terminated. “Basically, we don’t dispute their contention,” Howe told The Associated Press. Howe’s predecessor as district attorney, Phill Kline, filed 107 criminal charges against the clinic in October 2007, including 23 felonies alleging that the clinic also falsified records to help cover up illegal late-term abortions. Groups on both sides of the debate described the case as the first one known in the nation in which a Planned Parenthood clinic faced criminal charges. But in November, Tatum dismissed the 49 most serious charges, including the felonies, also at Howe’s request. Thirty-two misdemeanor charges remain, covering 16 abortions the clinic performed, also in 2003, but starting in July, when a state law took effect extending the deadline for pursuing charges to five years after an incident. Legal disputes surrounding the case have delayed even a preliminary hearing to determine whether there’s enough evidence against the clinic to warrant a trial. The clinic still is accused of violating a Kansas law that in 2003 restricted abortions at or after the 22nd week of pregnancy if a doctor determined the fetus was viable, or could survive outside the womb. In such instances, abortions were limited to saving a woman’s life or preventing “substantial and irreversible harm” to “a major bodily function,” which could include mental health. Legislators rewrote the law last year. For the 16 abortions covered by the remaining charges, the clinic faces one misdemeanor count each of not properly examining whether the fetus was viable and one misdemeanor count of performing an illegal late-term abortion. The clinic’s attorneys have said repeatedly it violated no laws. The charges dismissed Thursday were 13 counts of each misdemeanor, covering abortions occurring before the change in the deadline for pursuing charges. “It is inconceivable to me to understand how such a high-profile case could be so incompetently handled,” said Pedro Irigonegaray, a Topeka attorney representing the clinic. Kline, now a visiting assistant professor of law at Liberty University in Lynchburg, Va., did not return a telephone message and email late Thursday night seeking comment. Howe declined to comment further. 609 N.H. (offices) • 645 N.H. (News Center) Lawrence, KS 66044 (785) 843-1000 • (800) 578-8748

Library looking to move to Borders

‘We are trying to keep the feeling authentic’

Museum still closed after water damage Kansas University officials said the Spencer Museum of Art will remain closed through Monday after a water line broke early Wednesday on Mississippi Street and leaked water into the bottom two floors of the building. A majority of the damage was in the museum’s bottom floor, which houses the Murphy Art and Architecture Library, but the museum’s artwork, which is on higher floors, was intact, said Joe Monaco, a KU spokesman. Monaco said Thursday that water damaged between 15,000 and 20,000 books, which is roughly 10 percent of the library’s 170,000 volumes. He said about half of the items have been boxed and loaded into a freeze unit inside a semitrailer parked outside the museum. The remaining half have been boxed and were to be loaded onto a second trailer Thursday afternoon. Both trailers will be taken to a Chicago facility where they will be vacuum-freeze dried, evaluated and treated, Monaco said. About 90 volunteer students and staff members Wednesday night and Thursday morning helped box and load the volumes. “They were outstanding, and they’re a huge reason we were able to get all the volumes boxed and loaded so quickly,” he said. KU officials have not yet estimated a damage amount for the books or the museum itself. The Spencer gallery is always closed on Mondays, and Monaco said KU planned to announce Monday afternoon when the museum will reopen. The library is closed indefinitely.

Man cited for spitting at, punching women Lawrence police cited a 20-year-old Shawnee man for battery after he was accused of spitting in a woman’s face and punching her and her friend early Thursday morning. Sgt. Trent McKinley, a police spokesman, said the incident led to a large fight involving more than a dozen people about 1:40 a.m. in the 1300 block of Ohio Street. McKinley said the two victims, both 19-year-old KU students, told officers they had been standing outside The Hawk, 1340 Ohio, when a man touched one of the women inappropriately from behind. The woman said she did not know the man. “She stated she turned around and told him not to do that,” McKinley said. “The suspect then spit in her face, pushed her and punched her in the eye.” When the woman’s friend confronted the man, the suspect punched her in the forehead and injured her. That led to the larger fight, and McKinley said that when officers arrived they located the male suspect and ticketed him. Other people involved ran from the area, he said.

Lawrence native using city as backdrop for indie film By Adam Strunk

The film “Open Mic Night” is a love letter of sorts. That’s how Lawrence native, musician and director Matt Toplikar described the independent movie he has spent the last week filming in Lawrence. “I’ve been away from Lawrence for four or five years,” he said. “It’s

like my love letter to a certain music scene in this town.” Toplikar now works in Albuquerque, N.M., as a location coordinator for the hit AMC show “Breaking Bad.” With the show on a mid-season break, Toplikar has some time to film the movie he has been developing for about six months. Toplikar said “Open Mic Night” will have

a much different tone than the show. It’s basically a love story, about one musician’s search for a fellow musician he met at an open mic night. Toplikar and his crew have been frequenting bars like the Jazzhaus, Eighth Street Taproom, the Bottleneck and Jackpot to make the film. “We are trying to keep the feeling authentic, using natural light-

ing and using friends and local musicians,” Toplikar said. “It’s turned out really well.” Friends are also helping Toplikar, who graduated from Kansas University with a film degree, make the film and save money. He is funding the film himself, and most of those working on the film are volunteer crew members from Please see FILM, page 4A

Leaders of the Lawrence Public Library have reached a preliminary deal to open a temporary location in the former downtown Borders bookstore while a $19 million expansion of the library at Seventh and Vermont takes place during parts of the next two years. The move — which is still subject to City Commission approval — would allow the library to entirely vacate its current space during the construction project. “This will allow us to provide so much better customer service than if we tried to stay and work through the construction,” said Library Director Brad Allen. City commissioners at their Aug. 14 meeting likely will be asked to approve the approximately $240,000 lease for the vacant Borders building at Seventh and New Hampshire streets. As proposed, the library would be able to make the move and still stay within the $19 million budget for the expansion, which was approved by voters in November 2010. Please see LIBRARY, page 4A

Chefs compete using local fare at the fair By Karrey Britt

Dozens of people gathered under the shade of a huge white tent Thursday evening at the Douglas County Fairgrounds to watch three Lawrence chefs create dishes filled with locally grown or locally produced fare. As the chefs grilled and mixed, they talked about where they got their ingredients and how to prepare them. They were participating in the second annual Chefs’ Challenge, which was part of the Farmers’ Market at the Douglas County Fair. While the chefs put on a cooking demonstration, nearly 30 vendors were selling a variety of produce, meats and homemade goodies nearby. The event was organized by a broad coalition of organizations

that seek to support local growers and businesses. “It’s really to celebrate our creative chefs and the delicious local produce that’s available right now,” said Eileen Horn, sustainability coordinator for Douglas County and the city of Lawrence. The competitors in the challenge were: Dave Nigro, of Clinton Parkway’s Hy-Vee Food Store; Wallace Cochran, of The Merc; and last year’s champion, Russell Iverson, of Free State Brewery. Each year, the champion receives the opportunity to defend his or her title against two new contestants. Please see CHEFS, page 4A

Library leaders believe moving into the temporary location will actually reduce the total moving expenses budgeted for the project. That is because if the library stayed at it current location during the project, there would be at least eight moves taking place within the building. Architects also are estimating the project’s contingency line item can be reduced by about $70,000 to help cover the cost of the Borders lease. Allen said if city commissioners approve the lease, the temporary space could be open by early January. He said current plans call for all of the library’s public computers to be moved to the new location and about half of the library’s collection. But Allen said the rest of the collection will be stored in a readily accessible off-site location, and that patrons could request any item in the library’s collection and likely receive it within a day. Allen, however, said the Borders space will not leave much room for meeting or programming space. He said the library would work to create partnerships with other venues around town to hold traditional library programming during the construction. “We’re looking at it as a really good outreach opportunity that will allow us to take library programming out to some other locations in the community,” Allen said. How long the library may be located in the Borders spot isn’t yet known. Allen said the proposed lease is for 20 months. Architects are estimating it will take 18 to 22 months for the library project — which also includes construction of a parking garage — to be completed. As proposed, the city will pay a lease rate of about $7 per square foot for the Borders building, which has been vacant since early 2011.



Bond in child manslaughter case reduced By George Diepenbrock

A Douglas County judge has reduced bond for a 25-year-old Lawrence woman who was charged with manslaughter after prosecutors said her 5-year-old son died earlier this year after he ingested opiates at home. J.C. Gilroy, a defense attorney for Rebecca Lynne Wynne, said that during a hearing Thursday afternoon District Judge Paula Martin agreed to lower Wynne’s bond from $25,000 to $15,000, cash or surety. Gilroy said Martin ordered Wynne to live with her father if she gets out of jail because she is barred from returning to the home where the alleged incident occurred in the 1500 block of Delaware Street. Prosecutors last week charged Wynne with reckless involuntary manslaughter for the death of her son, who Lawrence police have identified as Joseph Michael Beanblossom, and two counts of aggravated child endangerment with her two oth-


er children, ages 6 and 4, listed as the victims. District Attorney Charles Branson said prosecutors accuse Wynne of stashing an illegal controlled substance in the house. He said the children discovered the pills the evening of April 27 and played some type of counting game with them. “We believe all three kids were exposed to the pills,” Branson said. “The 5-year-old boy died as a result of ingesting the pills that were discovered.” Prosecutors filed the charges after an autopsy was conducted. Family members last week defended Wynne and said she would not intentionally harm her children. Wynne was still listed in custody at the Douglas County Jail late Thursday afternoon. Martin has scheduled an Aug. 22 preliminary hearing in the case. — Reporter George Diepenbrock can be reached at 832-7144. Follow him at

a cold tomato melon salad. “It was fun and I really enjoyed it,” said Cochran, who has been a chef for about 20 years. He said there was a bounty of local produce to work with despite the area’s drought and tripledigit temperatures. Cochran used produce from a variety of local farms, including a school garden and Maggie’s Farm. The owner of Maggie’s Farm, Barbara Clark, served as one of the judges along with Douglas County Commissioner Nancy Thellman and Michael Beard, chef at 715 restaurant. “It was an extremely difficult job,” Clark said laughing. “Having to sit in the shade and eat fine food. I mean it’s not too bad. It was great.” She said the hardest part was voting on a winner. “They were all wonderful dishes, and everybody was great with using local produce. It was a tough decision.”

The champion was named by a panel of three judges and from those in the audience who sampled the dishes. Sadie Keller, who will be a sophomore at Lawrence High School, said she liked Nigro’s dish the best.

Megabus crashes on way to K.C.; 1 dead, 3 dozen hurt By Jim Salter Associated Press

LITCHFIELD, ILL. — A packed double-decker Megabus slammed into an Illinois interstate bridge support pillar Thursday, hurtling screaming passengers from their seats and leaving at least one person dead and more than three dozen injured, officials said. Illinois State Police Trooper Doug Francis said the passenger who died was female, but he would not disclose her name or age. He did not know where she was seated on the bus, which was traveling between Chicago and Kansas City. Francis said 38 people were taken to hospitals for injuries from the crash, which left the bus sitting with its crumpled front end smashed up against the bridge support. Rescue crews climbed ladders to reach those trapped inside, while others tended to injuries along the side of Interstate 55. “There was a lot of screaming and crying,” said 16-year-old passenger Baysha Collins, of Minneapolis, who was traveling to St. Louis to visit relatives. “There was blood everywhere. I was just in shock.” Megabus spokeswoman Amanda Byers said the bus was at full capacity, carrying 81 passengers, when it crashed near Litchfield, about 55 miles northeast of St. Louis. It left from Chicago and was to stop in St. Louis and Columbia, Mo., before arriving in Kansas City. “We don’t know what happened,” Francis said. “Somebody reported to us it was a blown tire, but we haven’t confirmed that yet.” The trooper said 33

people were taken by ambulance to hospitals, two were flown by helicopter to St. Louis hospitals and three were flown by helicopter to a hospital in Springfield, Ill. He did not know their conditions. Memorial Medical Center spokesman Michael Leathers said late Thursday that seven people were being treated at the hospital, but he declined to reveal their conditions. Paula Endress, spokeswoman for St. Francis Hospital in Litchfield, said

22 people were brought to the hospital for treatment, with two of them admitted due to bone fractures. She said none of the injuries were life-threatening. In St. Louis, Barnes Jewish Hospital spokeswoman Liz Kalicak said two patients, one in serious, the other in fair condition, were being treated. A 24-year-old man was being treated for multiple fractures at Saint Louis University Hospital. The hospital spokeswoman would not release his condition.

I have an apple tree with tons of apples weighing down the limbs. When will those be ready to pick? Not until fall? This apple tree hasn’t produced in years past.


Knowing whether the apple is ripe depends on the variety of the apple. Douglas County horticulture extension agent Jennifer Smith said if the variety is unknown, you should pick an apple and taste it. If it is sour and doesn’t taste good, then it isn’t ripe yet.

What do you think of the city’s donation meters designated to help the homeless? Asked on Massachusetts Street

See story, page 1A

Henry Johnson, retired veterinarian, Topeka “I think it’s a great idea, especially since places (that help the homeless) might be experiencing cuts right now; if it’s visible and I saw it here, I would be inclined to put my change in there rather than take it home.”

Jacob Skalko, manager of Walmart, Ottawa “I think it’s great because the more convenient it is for people to donate the more likely it is they’ll do it.”

Roger Steele, graphic designer, Topeka “It’s a great idea as long as it’s secure and someone doesn’t rip it off. It would be great for loose change, especially if it had a coin sorter (for pennies).”

Rick Berger-Munson, Free State Brewery employee, Lawrence “I think that’s a good idea as long it’s going to help the homeless community. There should be some kind of sign that makes it clear who and what the money is for.”



Lawrence police Thursday afternoon arrested a man accused of displaying a handgun and threatening a juvenile as part of a domestic dispute in the 1600 block of Haskell Avenue, said Sgt. Trent McKinley, a Lawrence police spokesman. McKinley said police were called about 3:10 p.m. to an apartment in the area about a disturbance. Officers determined a domestic dispute occurred between a man and woman at the apartment. The juvenile tried to intervene and assist the female when the adult male suspect allegedly threatened him with the weapon. McKinley said police have arrested the man suspect on charges of domestic battery and aggravated assault. He also had municipal court warrants out for his arrest.

A driver fleeing officers in central Lawrence on Wednesday night struck a Dumpster and a parked vehicle before running away. Sgt. Trent McKinley, a Lawrence police spokesman, said an officer attempted to stop the vehicle at 11:20 p.m. for a traffic violation near 24th Street and Murphy Drive, but the suspect drove west on 24th Street and north onto Iowa Street before cutting through the CVS Pharmacy parking lot and the lot of a nearby apartment complex. “The driver was driving very recklessly, endangering a number of people in the parking lot,” McKinley said. “Because of danger to pedestrians and others in the area, the officer slowed down and lost sight of the suspect.” It appeared the suspect’s car struck a Dumpster near Hobby Lobby before the officer found it following a collision with a parked car in the parking lot of Hampton Court Apartments, 1704 W. 24th.

Midwest. But Morningstar will be rooting for the Lawrence project to succeed. “I just want everybody to understand that it will take a tremendous amount of effort to make it work in Lawrence,” said Morningstar. “But if they somehow can figure out how to make it work, what a wonderful benefit it will be for the community.”

The competition Lawrence city commissioners haven’t yet made any decisions about whether this is a game they’re ready to enter. But they certainly are doing all the pre-game calisthenics. City commissioners are deep into negotiations with two private developers and Kansas University about building a youth fieldhouse/recreation center on the northwest corner of Sixth Street and the South Lawrence Trafficway. As proposed, the project could be as large as 180,000 square feet and include eight basketball courts that could double as 16 volleyball courts. It also would include a walking track, fitness room, indoor turf field and other amenities. The city also is working with Lawrence developer Thomas Fritzel and Kansas University to allow KU to build a track and field stadium and competition soccer field on the city’s 50-acre site. Now, city commissioners must decide whether they want to throw the public’s checkbook onto the playing field. The latest proposal calls for the city to pay $24 million over a 20-year period to Fritzel as part of a lease-purchase agreement, plus the city would pay to operate the fieldhouse facility. Officials then hope the city would become a major destination for youth sporting events that would attract thousands of athletes and their par-

houses across the country — including the one in Wichita. He said figuring out the right size for a facility is a key equation in these projects. “We have found there is a real balance in terms of what you can spend on one of these facilities versus what it will produce in terms of economic benefit for a community,” Good said. “That plan in Lawrence is a pretty large undertaking for a population of 100,000 people, but I would assume the university is going to be a big supporter of the efforts.”

The numbers Indeed, Lawrence leaders believe Kansas University will give the project a significant advantage over other competitors. The university will not contribute any money toward construction or operation of the fieldhouse, but city leaders believe the university’s track and field stadium and soccer field will be available to host youth sports tournaments. Kansas University men’s basketball coach Bill Self and his non-profit Assists Foundation also have expressed interest in the fieldhouse. City leaders are hopeful Self’s involvement will help attract the attention of youth tournament organizers from across the country. “We think the fact Lawrence and college basketball are thought of together by so many people across the country will be a marketing advantage,” said City Manager David Corliss. But city officials said they still have some research to do on the project. Corliss has estimated the city will have to subsidize the operation of the facility by about $300,000 a year, but he said that number is subject to change as he gets more information about operational costs. Operation costs ended up being an issue in Frisco, Texas, which operates a $15.2 million, 142,000-square-foot center with 12 gyms. Between the time the center opened in March 2009 and

L AWRENCE J OURNAL -W ORLD late 2011, the fieldhouse — which is in the Dallas metro area — fell about $1 million behind in lease payments and had to seek new terms from the city. Lawrence officials also are working to determine how many tournaments a Lawrence fieldhouse could attract. In the Kansas City area the demand for youth tournaments is strong. The Fieldhouse of Kansas City, which has been open since April, just recently hosted a 165-team tournament. It expects to host basketball tournaments about 24 weekends out of the year. A partnership it has with a local volleyball academy is expected to fill the courts the remaining weekends. The New Century Fieldhouse expects to host 29 tournaments during 2012, Geller said. For the first six months of the year, the facility has hosted about 132,000 participants and spectators. She also said the financial performance of the facility has been good. Revenues from the fieldhouse are on track to total about $980,000, while operating expenses are budgeted to total about $950,000. The New Century facility — which has four fulltime staff members — is about half the size of the proposed Lawrence fieldhouse. But it isn’t yet clear whether Lawrence’s operating expenses would be roughly double those of the Johnson County facility. Corliss said he didn’t want to speculate yet on how much it may cost to run the Lawrence fieldhouse. The city is expecting a report next week that details some of the potential economic impacts of a new fieldhouse that Corliss expects to help him better understand potential operating expenses. City commissioners are scheduled to discuss that report and other fieldhouse issues at their Aug. 7 commission meeting.

Ex-KU student’s probation revoked

A Douglas County judge recently revoked the probation of a 20-year-old former Kansas University student convicted of aggravated battery in connection with a sexual assault at a KU fraternity in 2010. Andrew J. Hansen initially was charged with one count of rape, but he pleaded guilty to aggravated battery, served more than three months in jail, participated in a sex offender evaluation and agreed to perform 100 hours of community service. As a condition of his probation, he was barred from drinking alcohol. According to an affidavit filed in Douglas County District Court, Hansen was arrested on DUI and minor in possession of alcohol charges COURTS in April in Maryville, Mo., and registered a bloodalcohol level of .279. The legal limit to drive is .08. He also tested positive for alcohol in a urine test shortly after his arrest, according to the affidavit. According to Douglas County District Attorney Charles Branson’s office, District Judge Peggy Kittel last Friday ordered Hansen to serve his original sentence in the Kansas case, which is 32 months in a Kansas Department of Corrections prison. Hansen was taken into custody and to the Douglas County Jail on Friday. As of Thursday, he had not been transported to state custody. Kittel gave Hansen credit for 109 days he had already served in jail as part of the plea agreement. In the plea, Hansen admitted he had touched a female KU student, an acquaintance, in her vaginal area after she had fallen asleep in a room at the Delta Chi fraternity house, 1245 West Campus Road, the night of Aug. 21, 2010. Attorneys said — City reporter Chad Lawhorn can be Hansen and the woman reached at 832-6362. Follow him at had consumed alcohol that night.

Annan quits as Syrian envoy, blames lack of unity By Elizabeth A. Kennedy and John Heilprin Associated Press

BEIRUT — Kofi Annan announced his resignation Thursday as peace envoy to Syria and issued a blistering critique of world powers, bringing to a dramatic end a frustrating sixmonth effort that failed to achieve even a temporary cease-fire as the country plunged into civil war. Annan also had harsh words for the Syrian regime, saying it was clear President Bashar Assad “must leave office.” As the violence escalated on the ground, rebels used a captured tank to shell a military air base near Aleppo — one of the first known uses of heavy weapons by the insurgents. Speaking to reporters in Geneva, Annan blamed the Syrian government’s intransigence, the growing militancy of Syrian

KOFI ANNAN, JOINT SPECIAL ENVOY of the United Nations and the Arab League for Syria, speaks during a press briefing Thursday at the European headquarters of the United Nations in Geneva, Switzerland. Annan is stepping down as U.N. Arab League mediator in the 17-month-old Syria conflict at the end of the month, U.N. chief Ban Ki-moon said Thursday. rebels and a divided Security Council that failed to forcefully back his effort. Since he took on the job, Russia and China have twice used their veto power to block strong West-

ern- and Arab-backed action against President Bashar Assad’s regime. The White House said Annan’s resignation highlighted the failure of Russia and China to support

action against Assad and called the regime’s continued violence against its own people “disgusting.” “It is impossible for me or anyone to compel the Syrian government and also the opposition to take the steps to bring about the political process,” said Annan, a Nobel Peace Prize laureate and former U.N. secretary general. “You have to understand: As an envoy, I can’t want peace more than the protagonists, more than the Security Council or the international community for that matter.” Annan singled out the regime for blame for the violence. But he also said the opposition’s increasing militarization had contributed to dooming his six-point peace plan, which included a cease-fire and a Syrian-led political process to end the crisis. “The bloodshed continues, most of all because of

the Syrian government’s intransigence, and continuing refusal to implement the six-point plan, and also because of the escalating military campaign of the opposition — all of which is compounded by the disunity of the international community,” he said. “At a time when we need — when the Syrian people desperately need action — there continues to be finger-pointing and name-calling in the Security Council.” U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said he accepted the resignation with deep regret, adding that the search was under way for a successor to Annan, who will stay on until Aug. 31.

Undecideds tough for Obama, Romney PURCELLVILLE, VA. (AP) — Undecided voters in swing states hold the key to the presidential election, but neither Mitt Romney nor Barack Obama has an easy recipe for winning them over. Today’s new jobs report, even if dismal for incumbent President Obama, might do little to help challenger Romney with this group. Undecided voters interviewed this week said they place little importance on such statistics, even though both cam-

Video teaches how to handle shooting HOUSTON (AP) — Ominous music plays as a man in dark clothing, sunglasses and a backpack walks toward people working in a high-rise building. The narrator’s voice warns: “It may feel like just another day at the office, but occasionally life feels more like an action movie.” Moments later, the man opens fire on a security guard near an elevator. It’s the beginning of a nearly 6-minute video created by the City of Houston in an effort to teach residents what to do during a shooting. Local Homeland Security officials said they realized during training exercises that first responders knew how to react but citizens were far less knowledgeable. The video emphasizes a short mantra — run, hide, fight — to help people remember their options. The video was made using $200,000 from a federal grant, and its release was expedited following last month’s movie theater shooting in Aurora, Colo. “As children we’re all taught by the fire department to stop, drop and roll if you’re on fire,” said Richard Retz, who works for the Mayor’s Office of Public Safety and Homeland Security and helped produce the video. “Unfortunately, with our society the way it is today, we felt that there had to be a new one.” Several countries and other U.S. cities have done educational campaigns on similar topics, including a long-running one in Israel that tells people what to do if they see an unattended package. Such campaigns can be effective because they bring incidents people see on television closer to home, said Danny Davis, director of a homeland security graduate program at Texas A&M University.

paigns mine them for every possible advantage. Instead, these voters want more details about Romney’s economic proposals and Bain Capital record, less bickering between the parties and a greater sense of inspiration and leadership from both candidates. Some of them acknowledge that’s a vague wish list. But with less than a dozen states in play, and polls showing that about 10 percent of the electorate remains undecided, this sliver of hard-to-

please Americans could decide the Nov. 6 election. Scott Davison, who works at a bicycle shop in Purcellville, Va., is typical of on-the-fence voters interviewed this week in Virginia, Ohio and Florida. Romney has a chance to dissuade him from his inclination toward Obama, Davison said, but the former Massachusetts governor must offer more details about how he would improve the economy. “I’m not seeing anything substantial that Romney

has to offer,” said Davison, 40, who lives in politically competitive Loudoun County. “I’m just seeing superficial stuff.” Davison, who studied economics at Colorado State University and weighs his words before speaking, said he puts little campaign stock in monthly employment reports. Elected officials, he said, “can help steer policy. But it’s like the QE2. If you make a change up at the bow, it’s going to take miles and miles to turn it around.”

Notable The European Central Bank is preparing to unleash its financial might and buy government bonds to help drive down borrowing costs in debt-ridden countries like Spain and Italy, caught in the grip of what president Mario Draghi called a “worsening crisis.” Draghi urged leaders of the 17 countries that use the euro to use their bailout fund to take the same action, sending a clear message: Europe’s financial crisis requires more forceful remedies than leaders have so far been able to muster. The move toward bond buying came a day after the Federal Reserve hinted it was leaning toward further action to stimulate U.S. growth, highlighting the growing pressure on central bankers to rescue weak economies across the globe.

Crop-withering drought intensifies By Jim Suhr Associated Press

ST. LOUIS — Drought conditions have worsened in several parched Plains states, further punishing withering corn and soybean crops and devastating the pastureland that ranchers depend on, according to the latest U.S. drought map. Thursday’s release of the weekly U.S. Drought Monitor map came as the House extended disaster-relief legislation meant to help livestock producers who have seen feed prices soar due to what for many is the worst drought in decades. That legislation, opposed by conservation and anti-tax groups who see it as another government bailout, was unlikely to receive Senate consideration before Congress adjourns for its August recess. According to the latest Drought Monitor update, based on conditions as of Tuesday morning, the area of the lower 48 states experiencing extreme drought — the second-highest classification behind exceptional drought — rose nearly 2 percentage points from the previous week, to 22.3 percent. This was due largely to a worsening of conditions in parts of Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska and Oklahoma. The area facing exceptional drought increased from 2.38 percent to about 3 percent. While nearly two-thirds of the lower 48 states still is experiencing some drought, recent storms pushed the percentage down to 62.91, from last

week’s 63.86. Brian Fuchs, a climatologist with the National Drought Mitigation Center, said the improvement isn’t much of a silver lining, because the rains did little more than “settle the dust.” “There are rain events that did take place, but we didn’t see any widespread improvement to the core drought areas,” Fuchs said by phone from the University of Nebraska in Lincoln, where the drought report is released. Such precipitation “probably held off the intensification for a week or so. But the heat is going kick back in, and we’re going be in the same situation. “The heat kicks in and the dryness returns. To say that we’ve seen good widespread rain throughout the drought regions of the county, we just haven’t. It’s beneficial in some aspects, but in agricultural aspects it’s too late.” As of this week, nearly half of the nation’s corn crop was rated poor to very poor, according to the USDA’s National Agricultural Statistics Service. About 37 percent of the U.S. soybeans were lumped into that category, while nearly three-quarters of U.S. cattle acreage is in drought-affected areas, the survey showed. The drought has intensified in key farm states. Roughly 31 percent of Iowa — the nation’s biggest corn and soybean producer — was in extreme or exceptional drought, up 3 percent from the previous week in a state completely covered by some form of drought.

Saga continues A former Lawrence police officer’s decision to fight his dismissal feeds continuing questions about whether police involvement in the KU ticket scandal was properly handled.


he fallout from the Kansas University basketball ticket scandal continues to hang over the city almost as oppressively as this summer’s temperatures. The public is just as much the loser in the ticket ordeal as local lawns are in the run of 100-degree days. Next up: a threatened lawsuit against the city by one of two former police officers dismissed in the side-scandal in which traffic violations disappeared in some form of exchange for KU basketball tickets. In the wider scandal, a conspiracy to steal and sell basketball tickets sent seven KU Athletics employees to prison. One of those is the individual who provided tickets to police officers and had traffic citations fixed in return. Ultimately, two officers were dismissed over violations of the city’s gratuity policy, although many in the public continue to believe the circumstances involved something as serious as bribery. Former Police Sgt. Michael Monroe now is saying he’s going to court to protest his firing. His dismissal was upheld by the city manager, who overruled a city employee grievance review board determination that Monroe should be reinstated with a demotion. The city continues basically to stand mute. Now, instead of relying on “personnel issues,” the decision not to release substantive information in the case is attributed to “pending litigation.” That stance might be tolerable in some situations, but this involves the city’s police department, and Lawrence residents need to have confidence in the officers on the street, the organization and its leadership, and the governing body behind it. The continued lack of a clear presentation of what happened, who knew and did what, and why matters were handled as they (apparently) were continues to cause public skepticism that the issue was identified properly, that the investigation was fair and complete, and that the discipline was reasonable. And that the story is over. One next step in this saga is for the city manager’s decision to be forwarded to the city commission, which can only determine whether a policy change should be made. It’s time for a complete revelation. Perhaps the commission discussion could provide that. Unfortunately, it seems we may instead get whatever partial information comes eventually from a lawsuit that will dredge up the topic and renew public speculation and concern.

Tea party should note 1912 struggle WASHINGTON — Ted Cruz’s victory in Tuesday’s Texas Republican runoff for the U.S. Senate nomination is the most impressive triumph yet for the still-strengthening tea party impulse. And Cruz’s victory coincides with something conservatives should celebrate, the centennial of the 20th century’s most important intraparty struggle. By preventing former President Theodore Roosevelt from capturing the 1912 Republican presidential nomination from President William Howard Taft, the GOP deliberately doomed its chances for holding the presidency but kept its commitment to the Constitution. Before Cruz, now 41, earned a Harvard law degree magna cum laude, he wrote his Princeton senior thesis on the Constitution’s Ninth and 10th Amendments, which if taken seriously would revitalize two bulwarks of liberty — the ideas that the federal government’s powers are limited because they are enumerated, and that the enumeration of certain rights does not “deny or disparage others retained by the people.” Both ideas are repudiated by today’s progressives, as they were by TR, whose Bull Moose Party, the result of his bolt from the GOP, convened in Chicago 100 years ago Sunday — Aug. 5, 1912. After leaving the presidency in 1909, TR went haywire. He had always chafed under constitutional restraints, but he had remained a Hamiltonian, construing the Constitution expansively but respectfully. By 1912, however, he had become what the Democratic

Both thought the Constitution — the enumeration and separation of powers — intolerably crippled government. Espousing unconstrained majoritarianism, TR disdained Madison’s belief that the ultimate danger is wherever ultimate power resides, which in a democracy is with the majority. He endorsed the recall of state judicial decisions and by September 1912 favored the power to recall all public officials, including the president. TR’s anti-constitutional excesses moved two political heroes to subordinate personal affection to the pub-

lic interest. New York Sen. Elihu Root had served TR as secretary of war and secretary of state, and was Roosevelt’s first choice to succeed him in 1908. Massachusetts Sen. Henry Cabot Lodge had long been one of TR’s closest friends. Both sided with Taft. As the Hudson Institute’s William Schambra says (in “The Saviors of the Constitution,” National Affairs, Winter 2012, and elsewhere), by their “lonely, principled” stand, Root and Lodge, along with Taft, “denied TR the powerful electoral machinery of the Republican Party, which would almost surely have elected him, and then been turned to securing sweeping alterations” of the Constitution. Wilson won with 41.8 percent of the vote (to TR’s 27.4 percent). Taft won 23.2 percent, carrying only Vermont and Utah, but achieved something far grander than a second term — the preservation of the GOP as an intellectual counterbalance to the Democrats’ thorough embrace of progressivism and the “living” — actually, disappearing — Constitution. Today, many of the tea party’s academic despisers portray it as anti-democratic and anti-intellectual. Actually, it stands, as the forgotten heroes of 1912 did, with Madison, the most intellectually formidable Founder. He created, and the tea party defends, a constitutional architecture that does not thwart democracy but refines it, on the fact that in a republic, which is defined by the principle of representation, the people do not directly decide issues, they decide who will

Lawrence Fire Chief Jim McSwain said today that he was conYEARS cerned over a AGO series of fires in IN 1987 abandoned buildings. The most recent blaze had been “the third fire like this we have had in that area in the last several months,” said McSwain. “All three times people were there saying there could be people in there because it was used by transienttype people. It is not only dangerous for them, but obviously those structures are dangerous to firefighters who are trying not only to fight the fire, but protect lives.”



decide. And the things representatives are permitted to decide are strictly circumscribed by constitutional limits on federal power. TR sought to make these limits few — and as flimsy as cobwebs when the people chose to amend them by plebiscitary methods. The New Republic, then a voice of progressivism, ridiculed Root for being “committed to the theory of government, based upon natural rights” — the Declaration of Independence’s theory of pre-political rights. Schambra, however, argues that for Root and Lodge, as for today’s tea party, the rights proclaimed in the Declaration and the restrictions the Constitution imposes on government are inseparably linked, as Root said, to “the end that individual liberty might be preserved.” The GOP’s defeat in 1912 — like that in 1964 under Barry Goldwater, whose spirit infuses the tea party — was profoundly constructive. By rejecting TR, it preserved the Constitution from capricious majorities. When Cruz comes to the Senate, he and like-minded Republicans — Utah’s Mike Lee, Kentucky’s Rand Paul, South Carolina’s Jim DeMint, Wisconsin’s Ron Johnson, Pennsylvania’s Pat Toomey, Florida’s Marco Rubio, and, if they win, Indiana’s Richard Mourdock, Arizona’s Jeff Flake and perhaps some others — can honor two exemplary senatorial predecessors by forming the small but distinguished RootLodge Caucus.

Sustainability support

Campaign truth

To the editor: The Lawrence/Douglas County League of Women Voters (LWV) commends the City Commission for ignoring calls from a national pressure group opposed to environmental sustainability (Journal-World, July 20). In particular, Jim Mullins, spokesperson for Americans For Prosperity, asked the commission to:

defund our sustainability program

fire its coordinator

withdraw from an organization of local governments pledged to work for sustainability (the International Council for Local Environmental Initiatives) and

promise not to follow any recommendations resulting from a United Nations statement on sustainability (Agenda 21). The LWV and many other local citizens helped put our sustainability program in place. We want it supported and expanded, not abolished. Sustainability means leaving the world’s environment to our children in better shape than we found it. AFP says that’s a bad idea because it might violate someone’s property rights. The LWV is also concerned with protecting property rights. We are especially concerned about our rights to use our property and our bodies in a safe environment and not be subjected to pollution. In addition, the AFP may have a hidden agenda in all this. The AFP was founded and funded by the Koch brothers of Wichita and by other petroleum interests, among the largest sources of carbon dioxide pollution worldwide. Combating climate change may not be their primary concern. As all Kansans experience this summer’s record breaking temperatures, we thank the commissioners, city and county, for their continued support for environmental sustainability. Carrie Lindsey, president, League of Women Voters

To the editor: As elections approach we should remember that truth in advertising laws do NOT apply to political campaigns. Imagine what it would be like if they did. Lawsuits would be everywhere. Candidates are allowed to say whatever they want, regardless whether what they claim is based on fact. A possible example of this is the tactic of using the unpopularity of the Affordable Care Act and the common theme of “job killing laws.” What evidence exists that this law would kill jobs? Wouldn’t this act create jobs, particularly in the health field, as millions more Americans will have health care? If this law might kill jobs shouldn’t they explain how? Candidates for offices from county sheriff to mayors to lieutenant governors are claiming that they will end Obamacare. None of these offices can overturn an act of Congress. Are there no other issues that are important? Candidates for state and local offices should campaign explaining how they would execute the office for which they are running, what their qualifications for that office are and what changes they would make.

An article today described the misconceptions concerning YEARS public and private AGO responsibilities IN 1972 for trees growing in the right-ofway areas of Lawrence streets. Contrary to popular belief, the property owner was legally responsible for trees growing in the strip between the property line and the street. Misunderstandings about this had arisen in the past because of the longstanding city policy of regular tree trimming and occasional tree removal, such as in the case of diseased elms, hundreds of which had been removed by the city since 1963.


From the Lawrence Daily Journal-World for Aug. 3, 1912: YEARS “Accused of arAGO son, Calmer RidIN 1912 dle is being held in the county jail today. He was taken into custody this morning following the rumors that he had started the fire in his home at 625 Vermont street last night. A charge of arson probably will be preferred against the man if the investigation offers sufficient evidence of his having started the blaze.... It is alleged that in the closet where the fire was found, rags saturated in coal oil were lying on the floor. This led to the suspicion that the fire had been set and an investigation followed.... Just what the outcome of this case will be is rather uncertain. Arson cases are very infrequent in Lawrence.” — Compiled by Sarah St. John

Withey’s Euro trek caps busy summer


Worked out well

By Gary Bedore

Jeff Withey, who traveled to Greece, Germany and Macedonia last summer as a member of Athletes in Action’s all-star basketball team, now gears for an equally exciting adventure — a Sunday through Aug. 14 journey to Switzerland and Paris with Kansas University’s hoops squad. “It’s something we will remember forever,” said 7-foot senior center Withey, who is somewhat of an international travel expert at the age of 22 — he also trekked to France during his high school days at San Diego’s Horizon High. “Not too many times do people get to go to Europe paid for. It’ll be fun to be able to walk around and see everything. We’re going Withey with people we like. We’re all good friends, so it’s pretty much going on a trip with all your friends to a new place.” Withey is the right guy to ask about the differences in culture — and basketball — in Europe versus the U.S. “You’ve got to get used to the bigger key,” he said of the international lane of 16 feet wide, compared to the collegiate lane of 12 feet wide. “Everybody likes to shoot jumpers and it’s a really physical way to play basketball so it’ll be good for us to see the different way to play.” KU will play the Swiss National Team on Tuesday and Wednesday in Fribourg, Switzerland and French Club Teams on Aug. 11-12 in Paris. “It’s going to expand our game and just going out there and experiencing the different food, the different culture, it’s always fun to do that, walking around. The cities are all historic, so it’ll just be a good time,” Withey said. This trip figures to be a bonding experience for the Jayhawks, who have eight true freshmen on the roster to go with two red-shirt frosh. “We lose our two best players in Tyshawn (Taylor) and T-Rob (Thomas Robinson) and so we’re going to be a new, completely different team,” Withey said. “We have eight freshmen, and they each bring something

KU’s offseason conditioning shows at first fall practice By Matt Tait

Of all the events that go into offseason conditioning, Kansas University co-captains Dayne Crist and Toben Opurum zeroed in on one number. Forget faster sprint times, bigger biceps muscles or even added stamina. Crist and Opurum’s main focus this summer was to slice into their body fat percentage. Boy, did it work. When the summer conditioning program began, both Jayhawks had a body fat count of 13-14 percent. Thursday morning, when the team kicked off the 2012 season with a back-breaking conditioning test, both players registered right around 10 percent. “I was mad that I didn’t crack nine,” said Crist, who added that the drop was the best of his life. “I got right to 10.2, or something like that. I said I wanted to come back in a couple days and do it, but they wouldn’t let me.” Though generally pleased, Opurum also was a little disappointed by the number.



“I wanted to get down to single digits,” Opurum said. “I was single digits when I was about 235 (pounds). It’s kind of tough to be 245, 250 (and have) single-digit body fat. But that’s what I wanted to drop back down to.” With poor conditioning plaguing the Jayhawks during the past couple of years, starting the season off in “fourthquarter shape” provided a lift for this year’s new-look squad. The general vibe was summed up best by defensive coordinator Dave Campo, who Thursday, got his first extended look at his new team since the end of spring practice. “I think this football team is in shape,” Campo said. “And that’s all you can ask at this point.”

Added Opurum, when asked what it was like to hear that kind of talk from his coaches: “Well, that’s a start. The strength and conditioning staff, that’s the backbone of our team. The fact that our coaches are noticing it on the first day, I think that says a lot.” Perhaps the most encouraging part about the current make-up of the Jayhawks’ roster is that these guys are not finished. Far from it, in fact. The work they put into the offseason not only toned muscles, shed fat and built confidence, but also became contagious. One by one, nearly all of the players who were in Lawrence this offseason replaced remote controls and fast-food runs with extra reps and unyielding effort. “It started kind of slow,” Opurum said. “But you have to kind of show other guys and convince them that if one hour on these one or two extra days can help us become a better team, why would you not want to do it? After hearing and seeing that, we started filling up the weight room.”

What they did there was the more impressive part. “There really were no gray areas,” senior offensive lineman Tanner Hawkinson said. “It was all black and white. We knew that if we bought in and did we were supposed to do we were going to put ourselves in position to win some games and surprise some people. So, really, it was just the motivation of knowing what could happen if we all gave 100 percent throughout the training process.” It was, of course, a lot more detailed than that. Buying in helped, but so did the insanely meticulous workout plans and the head-to-toe emphasis on improving each day. “I’d say it’s just different because we did a lot of workouts that I haven’t done before,” Opurum said. “We really focused on different parts of the body that we haven’t done before. Everything from ankle workouts and shin workouts; we literally would do small stuff like different shoulder circuits to work different parts Please see FOOTBALL, page 3B

Douglas earns U.S. three-peat in gymnastics’ top title LONDON (AP) — Now this is fierce. Gabby Douglas became the third straight American to win gymnastics’ biggest prize when she won the all-around Olympic title on Thursday. She finished with a score of 62.232, about three-tenths ahead of Viktoria Komova of Russia. It’s her second gold medal of the London Games, coming two nights after she and her “Fierce Five” teammates gave the United States its first Olympic team title since 1996. Douglas brought the house down with her energetic floor routine, and U.S. pals Jordyn Wieber, McKayla Maroney and Kyla Ross jumped to their feet and cheered when she finished. Douglas flashed a smile and coach Liang Chow lifted her off the podium.

Michael Phelps also had a smile on his face after he added to his medal collection with his first individual gold medal of the London Games. The U.S. star set the tone right from the start to become the first male swimmer to win the same individual event at three straight Olympics, capturing the 200-meter

individual medley for his 20th career medal — and 16th gold. Teammate Ryan Lochte settled for silver and Hungary’s Laszlo Cseh took the bronze. Americans Rebecca Soni (200 breaststroke) and Tyler Clary (200 backstroke) also won. Soni lowered her own world record with a time of 2 minutes, 19.59 seconds in the final. Ranomi Kromowidjojo of the Netherlands took the 100 freestyle, clocking 53.00 to improve on her own Olympic record.

The underground — The London Underground was built by the Romans in 410 A.D. to keep the Picts from being able to invade the city without having to change trains at least three times. It is an efficient way to get around when the lines are all working (April 3 through 6, 1954). Getting Olympic tickets — This is tricky. At first the Olympic organizers said there were no tickets left, but a big scandal erupted when the Brits saw lots of empty seats on TV. The organizers then scrambled to get tickets to the public, and even started filling empty seats with British Army troops. So your best bet, when you get over here, is to join the British Army, and they might order you to watch an Olympic event. Of course they also might send you to Afghanistan.

AKRON, OHIO — Jim Furyk made a detour to Florida to sit on his back porch and hang out with his kids as he tried to figure out why decent golf was producing ordinary scores. The short break appeared to do him a world of good Thursday in the Bridgestone Invitational. With seven birdies and a 30-foot eagle putt, Furyk had a 7-under 63 for his best score ever at Firestone and a two-shot lead over Lee Slattery of England. The conditions could not have been more ideal with sunshine, heat and very little wind, along with carpet for fairways and smooth greens. It showed in some of the tee shots on the South Course — 58 drives of at least 350 yards, and a 427-yarder by Branden Grace of South Africa — and mostly in the scoring. Luke Donald, the world’s No. 1 player, and Masters champion Bubba Watson were among those at 66. Thirty players in the 78-man field at this World Golf Championship managed to break par. Tiger Woods was not among them. He was 3 under after back-to-back birdies to start the back nine, but had to lay up with his third shot on the par-5 16th after driving into the trees and ended his round with a three-putt bogey from 25 feet for a 70. It was his second-worst start at Firestone, a course where he has won seven times. The other was a 74 in 2010, his last week without a swing coach.

PSU kicker headed to Texas STATE COLLEGE, PA. — Kicker-punter Anthony Fera is bolting Penn State for Texas, the second starter to depart Happy Valley this week following harsh NCAA sanctions against the program for the Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse scandal.

NCAA endorses new policy INDIANAPOLIS — Nearly a year after promising to impose harsher sanctions on the most egregious rule-breakers, NCAA leaders endorsed a proposal Thursday that would make schools subject to the same crippling penalties handed to Penn State. The measure includes postseason bans of up to four years, fines that could stretch into the millions and suspensions for head coaches. A final vote on the sweeping overhaul won’t occur before the board of directors’ October meeting. The plan calls for changing the current two-tiered penalty structure of major and secondary violations to a four-tiered concept, increasing the size of the infractions committee from 10 up to 24 in an effort to speed up the enforcement process and holding coaches individually accountable for any violations that occur in their program. But it’s the penalties that will make school leaders take notice. A program found to have made a “serious breach of conduct� with aggravating circumstances could face postseason bans of two to four years.

1949 — The National Basketball Association is formed by the merger of the National Basketball League and the Basketball Association of America. 1996 — Andre Agassi, the Dream Team and the U.S. women’s 400-meter relay team win Olympic gold medals, while the American men’s 400 relay settles for silver. With Carl Lewis idled by a coach’s decision and Leroy Burrell injured, the men’s 400 team is shocked by Canada — the first time the U.S. lost the event at the Olympics.

USA zone meet comes to town By Chris Duderstadt

With the 2012 Olympic Games under way, young swimmers across the nation have been fixated on their television sets while American phenoms Michael Phelps and Ryan Lochte battle it out in the London Aquatics Centre. Some of the best high school swimmers still in the States will also get a chance to showcase their talents during the USA Swimming Senior Central Zone Championships, today through Sunday in the Lawrence Indoor Aquatic Center at Free State High School. The city of Lawrence and the Lawrence Aquahawks swim team will co-host the central zone championships, which will feature swimmers from 13 different states and more than 30 different teams. The participants might not be the

Sloan is one of several Lawrence-area swimmers who will be competing at this weekend’s USA Swimming Senior Central Zone Championships at FSHS. future stars of the 2016 Summer Games in Rio de Janeiro — those potential qualifiers swim a tier or two above at senior and junior nationals — but meet director Ed Sloan still expects plenty of high-level competition.

“All of these swimmers have the potential to swim in college at some level,” Sloan said. “It may not be (NCAA Division I), but at some level, if that is what they choose to pursue.” One of the Lawrencearea swimmers will be

Sloan’s son, Free State High senior Ben Sloan, who will compete as a member of the Aquahawks. “It’s really cool that our town got chosen — and our pool — for this meet,” Ben said. “It’s a pretty big deal, and I’m excited to swim in it and be able to represent the Aquahawks.” Aquahawks coach and Kansas University alumnus Justin Clossen said that Sloan would be one of six or seven members of the Lawrence team who would be competing in the central zone championships — all of the swimmers must hit qualifying times to be entered. Clossen has 11 years of coaching experience but just took over as head coach of the Aquahawks in April. Clossen acknowledged there were numerous people and sponsors who made it possible to hold the meet in Lawrence, but he specifically

credited Lawrence Indoor Aquatic Center manager Jimmy Gibbs and his staff for making the venue worthy of hosting the competition. “They’ve hosted four meets in five weeks,” Clossen said. “So for them to get the pool ready and get the staff ready and all that kind of stuff, Jimmy (Gibbs), Lori (Madaus) and Becky (Childers) go above and beyond. I was not around when the pool was built, but they built — in swim coaches’ terms — they built a fantastic tank.” Swimmers will have two hours to warm up before preliminaries start at 9 a.m. each day. Warmups for finals will begin at 4 p.m. and then the final heats will begin at 5:30 p.m. The central zone championships are open to the public, and spectators may purchase a one-session pass for $5 or an allsession pass for $25.

The Indians rallied from a six-run first-inning deficit, but lost their sixth straight, their longest losing streak since dropping seven in a row from June 19-26, 2010. Aaron Crow (2-1), the sixth Royals pitcher, worked a spotless 11th inning to pick up the victory. Reliever Esmil Rogers (1-1), the fifth of six Indians pitchers, took the loss.

of your shoulders. It just was a whole lot of work.” And, even though Opurum said the summer sessions had an almost mandatory feel to them, most of their time in the weight room was voluntary. “I feel like there’s so much more opportunity to do extra,” Crist said. “Not to say that guys I have played with in the past weren’t passionate and didn’t care, because that’s not at all the case. But there was just so much more opportunity to clock hours, fine-tune what you wanted to do. That was new to me.” The whole thing is new to the Jayhawks, many of whom were still sitting the bench playing junior varsity football in high school the last time the

Jayhawks started a season on such a high note. While the early reports about Thursday’s conditioning tests seemed favorable — Damon Martin, Daymond Patterson, Tony Pierson, Tyler Patmon, D.J. Beshears, Victor Simmons and Chris Omigie all received praise for their performance from the team’s captains — Crist said he got the sense that the summer success was just the beginning and that the entire team recognized that it was now time to elevate yet again. “It’s real,” Crist said. “This is the start of the season. It’s all business and it’s what you work all year for. All the outside stuff that you’re doing all year, it all leads to the football season. And it’s all irrelevant if you’re not taking care of business and winning games. We’re in season. It’s the most exciting time of the year.”

Dear Annie: Many years ago, I suspected my ex-husband of sexually abusing our daughter, “Mary.” There was opportunity and some evidence. I didn’t actually see anything. In and out of denial, I didn’t know what to do, and so I didn’t do anything. But it’s tormented me. Several years ago, Mary told me she believed she was sexually abused as a child, but didn’t know exactly who the perpetrator was. Her details were hazy, but the statements she made confirmed my suspicion. Because she was going through a difficult time, I decided to hold off on telling her. Since then, she has read a book on sexual abuse and is trying to fill in the blanks. At her request, I also read the book. Now she feels she knows who it was, but the person she holds responsible could not pos-

sibly be the right one. I believe she is having false memories. But she feels she has worked through it and at times seems to be doing well. Other times, she still seems fragile. My question is: Should I tell her the truth about her father or let her continue to believe it was the other guy? I have prayed about this. I believe the right thing to do is to tell her the truth, but I don’t want to hurt her more. We live in different cities, so getting together with her has

Olympics are gold for NBC Given NBC’s long history of low ratings, you have to imagine there are times when network executives wished they could broadcast football every night. For at least two years now, NFL coverage has offered the Peacock Network its only consistent chance to be on top. So far, NBC’s Olympics coverage has allowed them to live that dream. Over the first three nights of the Games, the networked averaged 35.8 million viewers per night. That’s the biggest average audience for an opening weekend since they started measuring such things. The numbers are even larger than the audience for the 1996 Olympic Games in Atlanta. In entertainment terms, that’s like airing “The American Idol” finale every night for two weeks. M a n y have criticized the network for airing events on a “tape delay.” And many have used NBC’s own Twitter site to vent their frustrations. But thus far, television watchers don’t seem to mind. Given the fact that the Olympic broadcasts are defying a decades-long trend of shrinking network audiences, somebody at NBC Sports is doing something right. Gosh, has it really been a whole week since the hallucinatory opening ceremony of the London Games? Who knew the Industrial Revolution, William Blake, National Health and Mary Poppins could be shoehorned into a spectacle ending with a “hooray for digital technology” finale? The kindest thing I can say about director Danny Boyle’s “Isles of Wonder” vision is that it reminded me of something from “The Simpsons.” Tonight’s scheduled events at the XXX Summer Olympics (7 p.m., NBC) include swimming events, most notably, the men’s 100-meter butterfly; diving, women’s volleyball, men’s trampoline and the opening night of track and field.

Tonight’s other highlights

A coed army tangles with intergalactic insects in the 1997 satire “Starship Troopers” (6 p.m., Bravo).

Despite its theme of leaving childhood keepsakes behind, the 2010 Pixar fantasy “Toy Story 3” (7 p.m., Disney) attracted droves of viewers who were just toddlers when the first “Story” debuted in 1995.

Kevin Costner stars in the 1987 update of Prohibition-era gangster drama “The Untouchables” (7 p.m., AMC).

Wayward rattlesnakes on “Swamp Wars” (8 p.m., Animal Planet).

Wes has disturbing dreams on “Common Law” (9 p.m., USA).

Advice? — Anonymous Dear Anonymous: We recognize that some parents, when faced with the possibility that a spouse is abusing their child, become paralyzed with denial. But this was a terrible betrayal of your daughter. You were supposed to protect her. Please don’t compound your culpability by withholding information because you can’t seem to find the right moment to tell her. Since you aren’t sure how to approach this, please contact RAINN ( at 1-800-656HOPE (1-800-656-4673), and ask for help. Today.

For Friday, Aug. 3: This year great events occur because of your ability to relate intimately with others. You also seem to know what others aspire to achieve and are able to pave the way. If you are single, you enjoy relating on an individual level. If you are attached, you have great hope for your relationship. The Stars Show the Kind of Day You’ll Have: 5-Dynamic; 4-Positive; 3-Average; 2-So-so; 1-Difficult Aries (March 21-April 19)  You naturally slow down as the weekend approaches. Discussions surround a very unusual idea, so be sure to brainstorm with respected associates and friends. Tonight: Get home early. Relax. Taurus (April 20-May 20)  A friendship becomes even more important than you thought. This person is a source of remarkable ideas and solutions. Tonight: Where people are. Gemini (May 21-June 20)  A take-charge attitude is not your style, but it serves you well. If an idea is to be implemented as you would like, you must carry it out yourself. Tonight: Into the wee hours. Cancer (June 21-July 22)  Detach from an immediate situation, especially if it seems like a maze. Find an expert, or seek out different ideas. Tonight: Make music a requirement. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)  Others have a lot to share. You might prefer to relate directly to a key person. Tonight: Say “yes” to an offer. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)  An early invitation could make it close to impossible

ago, he finally proposed, and she said yes. Two weeks ago, she was invited to go overseas on a special program. Her fiance doesn’t want her to be away for six months. I suggested she postpone the wedding. I said, “People who love and care about each other trust each other. Since he’s been postponing the marriage for two years, I doubt another six months would hurt.” My sister was silent, but my mother got mad at me. I think everything I said made sense. Am I wrong? — New York Brother Dear Brother: Your comments were valid, but that’s irrelevant. This isn’t your decision, and apparently, both your mother and sister think it’s not your business. Your suggestions have been noted. Now, we strongly urge you to stay out of it for your own health and safety.

to say “no.” In fact, after accepting, you might have a difficult time remaining focused. Tonight: Go along with someone’s suggestion. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)  You look around and see everything you need to do. Don’t think about it, just do it. Tonight: Squeeze in something fun. Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)  You are drawn in by adventure and a desire to understand more of what is happening with an interesting loved one or friend. As a result, you’ll make an adjustment to your plans and be much more content. Tonight: Flex with a loved one or new friend. Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)  If you are in the mood to stay home, why not indulge that desire? Others might choose to take a relaxing walk by water at some point. Tonight: Play it low-key. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)  Keep talking and working through an issue. By the end of the day, you might see eye-to-eye with someone. What you might be inspired to do is much different than what can be accomplished. Tonight: Go to a favorite spot. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)  You could feel more polarized and opinionated than in the past. Relax a little, and absorb others’ views — there might be some validity to be found. Tonight: Clear your thoughts; share with a wise friend. Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)  Your essence and higher self come out. You can inspire others at best. Tonight: As you like. — The astrological forecast should be read for entertainment only.
