KU will not pursue civil case against ticket felons By George Diepenbrock

Kansas University officials won’t file a civil lawsuit against former athletics department employees who stole $2 million in a football and basketball ticket scheme, a KU spokesman said Friday.

“The cost of pursuing civil litigation against the ticket conspirators really outweighs the benefits to the institution,” said Tim Caboni, KU’s vice chancellor for public affairs. “We checked with our outside counsel. They understood, and they agreed with us.” A federal judge has sentenced

four former Kansas Athletics Inc. employees — Ben Kirtland, Rodney Jones, Charlette Blubaugh and Kassie Liebsch — and one department consultant, Tom Blubaugh, to federal prison after their guilty pleas in the cash-for-tickets scam Please see TICKETS, page 2A C. Blubaugh

JEFF HAUT, LAWRENCE, LOOKS FOR A CAR TO SMASH during the annual demolition derby Friday at the Douglas County Fairgrounds, 2110 Harper St.

Drivers, spectators get dirty at derby

By Joe Preiner

ONLINE: Watch the video at

For the majority of people attending the demolition derby Friday night at the Douglas County Fair, the evening was spent dodging dirt clods and cheering. The packed grandstands surrounding the dirt arena moved with the moments, celebrating every crash and flame. The event, arguably the most popular of all the annual fair’s attractions, had something for everyone, including spectator fights, automobile carnage and a marriage proposal — she said yes. The big show took center stage at the fairgrounds, 2110 Harper St., with multiple heats of destruction that lasted more than three hours. Lawrence resident Wendy Laxton has been attending demo derbies for the better part of two decades. She watched it Friday with a smile on her face. “It’s just the excitement,” she said. “I like to see them crashing the cars.” The ramming wasn’t all chaotic though, as Topeka resident Mike Redman could tell you. A former derby driver himself, he said he enjoyed watching the different

TOPEKA (AP) — Former Westar Energy executive David Wittig will receive $36 million plus legal fees to settle a long-running dispute with the utility company. Wittig served prison time for a bank case before federal charges that he looted Westar were dropped. The Topeka Capital Journal reported Thursday that the settlement also will give Wittig $3.1 million in legal fees. The company also will release $2.7 million in stock compensation to Wittig. An arbitration settlement was completed in July, the utility said. Westar spokeswoman Gina Penzig said the sum will I knew be paid with money share- with him holders set basically aside, not by winning in ratepayers. “We believe court, I knew this closes the he was going chapter,” she to get a huge added.

They also were charged with wire fraud and money laundering. The first trial ended in mistrial when jurors couldn’t reach a verdict. Convictions stemming from a second federal trial were overturned by the 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Denver. Federal prosecutors filed new charges against Wittig and Lake, ultimately dropping the criminal case in August 2010. Wittig faced one count of conspiracy and 14 counts of circumvention of Westar’s internal financial controls. Lake, of New Canaan, Conn., faced one count of conspiracy and 13 counts of circumvention of internal financial controls.

strategies unfold. “It’s more about keeping your car running and moving,” he said. “That’s the stressful part.” And while hundreds of spectators cheered on the show, behind the scenes drivers and their friends worked to piece together the leftovers for the event’s final showdown. Among them were Lawrence residents D.J. Davis and friend John Green. The two worked alongside a slew of others with torches, sledgehammers and tools in what resembled a car graveyard.

Teachers union in Lawrence district OKs new master agreement Teachers and other licensed personnel in the Lawrence school district ratified a master agreement that includes pay raises of $1,250 for the coming year. In balloting that ended Friday, members of the bargaining unit — teachers, counselors, librarians and others — voted 458-7 to accept the

deal negotiated between the Lawrence Education Association and the district, through the Lawrence school board. The agreement now goes to the board for its ratification Monday night. The board meets at 7 p.m. at district headquarters, 110 McDonald Drive. “We did come to an agreement

that, for the most part, everybody could agree on,” said Beth Maloun, union vice president and a special educator at Prairie Park School. “The teachers are pretty satisfied.” The agreement also includes provisions regarding health insurance, working conditions and other matters for at least 880 licensed educators.

Local, SRS leaders meet behind closed doors ————

Officials discussing ways to keep Lawrence office open Two high-ranking officials with the Kansas Department of Social and Rehabilitation Services met Friday with local leaders behind closed doors to discuss ways to avoid closing the Lawrence SRS office. SRS Chief of Staff Jeff Kahrs and Director of Government Affairs Gary Haulmark left after about one-half hour. “We’re happy to meet with them,” Kahrs said, but declined to divulge any details about what was discussed. None of the participants in the meeting would talk about

what was said. Douglas County Commission Chairman Jim Flory said, “We’re continuing to work on it.” He said he wasn’t at liberty to provide any details about any proposals put forward. SRS Secretary Robert Siedlecki Jr. has announced the closure of nine offices, including the one in Lawrence. Gov. Sam Brownback and Siedlecki have said the closures are needed to save $1 million in administrative costs. Local officials have said SRS’ stated savings of $400,000 by closing the Lawrence office is overstated, and that the closure would cause many vulnera-

— Tim Caboni, KU vice chancellor for public affairs versity’s insurance policy for theft. KU has recovered about $180,000 from the former employees in connection with the judgment in the criminal cases. Included in that, the Journal-World reported in May that Kirtland, an associate athletic director under former Athletic Director Lew Perkins, had paid $64,500 as part of a civil settlement with the athletics department in 2010. U.S. District Judge Wesley Brown also ordered Kirtland to be responsible for paying up to $1.2 million to KU and another $85,000 to the IRS. Federal prosecutors said

said he was disappointed Westar’s board of directors didn’t take steps to control Wittig’s actions while he was running the company. The two former executives claimed the Topeka-based Westar owed them compensation because the utility ended their employment contracts early, as well as for legal fees incurred while defending themselves in federal court on Westar-related charges. Westar had set aside nearly $90 million to cover Wittig and Lake’s claims, according to the Kansas Corporation Commission, which regulates utilities.

ble Kansans to lose critical services. Brownback and Siedlecki have said Lawrence clients could access services online or travel to nearby cities, such as Topeka. Advocates say that is not plausible. “It’s extremely important the SRS office remains open in Lawrence,” said Lawrence City Commissioner Mike Amyx, who attended the meeting Friday. Amyx said he “felt very good about the meeting.” Others in attendance were City Commissioner Hugh Carter, City Manager David Corliss and County Administrator Craig Weinaug. — Statehouse reporter Scott Rothschild can be reached at 785-423-0668.

there was no evidence Perkins participated in the scheme. Perkins resigned from KU in September 2010, one year earlier than he initially planned. Caboni said KU will continue to garnishee property and wages as necessary based upon Brown’s restitution order in the criminal cases. KU had recovered less than $25,500 through May in payments and wage garnishments from Jason Jeffries and Brandon Simmons, two former lower-level department employees who pleaded guilty to not alerting authorities to the scheme. Both men are on probation. Gray-Little and new Athletic Director Sheahon Zenger, who was hired in January, have said that whatever funds KU recovers would be directed to the benefit of student-athletes just as the stolen ticket money would have been. — Reporter George Diepenbrock can be reached at 832-7144.

“Westar shareholders will pay the dollar amounts associated with this settlement, not customers,” KCC Chairman Mark Sievers said. “Not through increased electric rates or billing fees, or any other means, now or in the future.” Lykins said even though the settlement is paid by money the shareholders set aside, those funds are raised by utility bills paid by customers who purchase electricity, “so indirectly everyone’s paying.” Wittig served time in federal prison for an unrelated banking case not tied to his tenure at Westar.

Motion for new trial denied


Senate ends FAA shutdown With tens of thousands of jobs, more than $1 billion and their reputations on the line, Senate Democrats gave way Friday to a power play by House Republicans in order to end a partial two-week shutdown of the Federal Aviation Administration. With lawmakers scattered for Congress’ August recess, the consent of only two senators was required to pass a bill restoring the FAA’s operating authority through Sept. 16. President Barack Obama signed it into law hours later. But partisan differences remain, and a repeat performance of the legislative standoff could come next month. The impasse had left hundreds of airport construction projects in limbo and idled tens of thousands of construction industry workers as well as nearly 4,000 FAA employees. 1 | WASHINGTON, D.C.

Army to trim war tours to 9 months

By George Diepenbrock

A Douglas County judge Friday declined the request for a new trial from a rural Lawrence man who is serving a life sentence for molesting a 4-year-old girl at a day care center in 2009. Defense attorneys for Richard Gonzalez, 69, alleged Friday that the Kansas Bureau of Investigation tested swabs taken from the girl’s body after the January verdict in the case and determined Gonzalez’s DNA was not found on the swabs. Defense attorney Carl Folsom said they would have likely used it “forcefully” at trial.

A jury in January convicted Gonzalez of sexually abusing the girl at a rural Lawrence day care center. They found him guilty of Gonzalez aggravated criminal sodomy and aggravated indecent liberties with a child. Prosecutors had said the girl alleged the acts occurred several times over a six-week period. Pokorny sentenced Gonzalez in May to serve 25 years to life in prison. “This evidence tends to show

that this did not happen,” defense attorney Branden Bell said. But prosecutor Amy McGowan, a chief assistant district attorney, said the defense had information that the KBI had the swabs, even though they weren’t tested. McGowan also argued that on the day the first allegation was made to her mother, the girl had already changed her clothing and gone swimming. It was hours after she had left the day care center, and her mother then took her to the hospital where a nurse performed a sexual assault examination, McGowan said. Investigators also collected the girl’s under-

Aided by the shrinking troop requirements for the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, the Army is cutting the current yearlong deployment tours to nine months for most of its units beginning next January. The change will not affect any of the Army troops deploying this year, and some high-demand units — such as aviation and military police — will continue to serve 12-month tours. The move comes as the Iraq war continues to wind down and as the U.S. begins what is to be a slow, deliberate withdrawal from Afghanistan. And it reflects a reduced demand on the military as the Pentagon looks to shrink the size of the Army and Marine Corps and slash budgets in line with the administration’s attempt to rein in spending.

wear, and a KBI agent testified he could not exclude that Gonzalez’s DNA was found on the girl’s underwear. Pokorny in her decision on Friday to deny the defense request for a new trial also relied on the DNA found on the underwear. “I do not believe a reasonable jury would have reached a different result even if this evidence would have been presented,” she said. Gonzalez is still expected to appeal the verdict and sentence to the Kansas Court of Appeals. — Reporter George Diepenbrock can be reached at 832-7144. Follow him at

Concerns raised about Joplin waste ———

Galena landfill taking most debris left over from tornado By Christine Metz


5 convicted in post-Katrina shootings A federal jury on Friday convicted five current or former New Orleans police officers of civil rights violations in one of the lowest moments for city police in the chaotic aftermath of Hurricane Katrina: the shooting deaths of a teenager and a mentally disabled man as they crossed a bridge in search of food and help. The case was a high-stakes test of the Justice Department’s effort to rid the police department of corruption and brutality. A total of 20 current or former New Orleans police officers were charged last year in a series of federal probes. Most of the cases center on actions during the aftermath of the Aug. 29, 2005, storm, which plunged the flooded city into a state of lawlessness and desperation. 3 | NORWAY

British teen slain by polar bear A polar bear attacked a group of British students camping on a remote Arctic glacier as part of a highend adventure holiday, killing a 17-year-old boy and injuring four other young people Friday before a trip member fatally shot the bear. Two were hospitalized with severe injuries, according to the British Schools Exploring Society, the organizer of the trip. The attack took place on the Svalbard archipelago, which is home to about 2,400 people and 3,000 polar bears and attracts well-off and hardy tourists with stunning views of snow-covered mountains, fjords and glaciers.

ters developed a new bond: terminal cancer. “Don’t know if I have a few months or 20 years. I have someone good here to look up to and who has been through it,” Betty Jo said as she nodded to Linda, who was sitting across the conference room table in the Lawrence Oncology Center. “She’s a heck of a fighter, and us McNishes are that way.”

Two very different groups are concerned that efforts to clean up debris from the Joplin tornado could turn a natural disaster into an environmental one. Both the Kansas chapter of the Sierra Club and the National Solid Wastes Management Association have raised questions about the 350 truckloads of tornado wastes that are being dumped each day into a landfill in southeast Kansas. In the wake of the deadly tornado that tore through Joplin, Mo., on May 22, the Kansas Department of Health and Environment gave the go-ahead for several landfills in the state to receive massive amounts of tornado debris. The majority of that waste has gone to a landfill owned by the city of Galena, which under state regulations can only accept materials that are found on construction and demolition sites such as wood, bricks and other building materials. Hazardous wastes, appliances and electronics are not allowed in the landfill. Landfills that take such wastes have to have a protective synthetic liner and put in

Sisters with terminal cancer lean on each other for support By Karrey Britt

Sisters Linda McNish and Betty Jo Corel are just three years apart and are best friends. They like to bake and do crafty things together. They help each other with house projects, like painting a room. They share lots of laughs and like to be pranksters. Linda, 46, lives in Lawrence and is single with no children.

Plans may not meet goal of ‘signature’ library structure By Dolph C. Simons Jr.

Not long ago, a Lawrence city commissioner said he wanted a new or redesigned city library that would be looked upon as a “signature” building. This raises several questions. Does the current City Commission want a building that will be known for years to come as a credit to those at City Hall who gave their final OK to the structure? Do they want a building that will be known as a signature structure for the architects who designed it? Do they want the building to be remembered for its cost or possibly how much the costs exceeded original projections? Do they want it known and remembered as the project that forced a “temporary” library to be used for one, two or three years before the new, remodeled, renovated and expanded building was ready for public use? And are there other “signature” elements of this building, such as designing it for current library needs and uses rather than for what those using a

“library” 15 or 20 years from now will want in the way of location, services and facilities? One knowledgeable and experienced architect told this writer he was shocked at what has been proposed and apparently agreed upon by city commissioners. He said the public has been presented a pretty drawing but that it is an “unbelievable” bad solution for a new or expanded library. He said costs are likely to be awesome, probably more than an entirely new building would cost and more than the cost of two branch libraries on the east and west sides of town. He said the idea of expanding the current building on each side, rather than adding a major wing or extension to the south, causes all kinds of costs and troubles with new foundations, footings, new electrical, new rooflines, new mechanical, new exterior walls and a total disruption of the library. City commissioners have asked for public comments on the plan, and this writer has received many, apparently because some very

knowledgeable people, who don’t want their names to be known, are extremely disappointed with what the city and its residents are buying — or what they will get for the millions of dollars that will be spent and borrowed.

COMMENTARY Some commissioners have said the public has spoken and it is too late to make any changes. But is it? One critic said it is “incredible” what is being shoved down the throats of Lawrence residents and taxpayers. Others have said several city commissioners are “totally offbase” on this project, while others have said it is important the project be done as currently planned in order to support the downtown. There are many who continue to favor the idea of branch library facilities and question the City Commission argument that staffing expenses would be too great. Another comment: “They (city

It would be better to tear down the entire structure and build a new facility without all the constraints imposed by trying to work around the current facility, making additions on all sides, rather than to add one major expansion to the south of the building.” Another critic questioned whether this project has been driven by downtown developers rather than what is in the best interests of the city. What will the people of Lawrence want and need in the notso-distant future? A columnist for the St. Louis Post-Dispatch recently wrote, “In its heyday, Borders accounted for more than 12 percent of the books sold in America. Barnes and Noble (which now accounts for 30 percent of book sales) and independent book sellers (10 percent) will pick up some of the business. Amazon will pick up most of the rest, either in paper or Kindle versions, which now out-

sell physical books on its site.” The columnist, Kevin Horrigan, continues, “The scariest thing about all of this is how little it matters to an increasing number of people … nearly half of people ages 18 to 24 read no books for pleasure. Among college seniors, in 2005, 61 percent said they either don’t read for pleasure at all or did so for less than an hour a week.” What does this say about future libraries? What kind of library should city officials, architects and visionary and knowledgeable people in the library field be calling for in Lawrence? If Lawrence is to have a “signature” library, let’s make sure it gains that designation because of its innovations, location, design, cost and ability to meet the needs of patrons for years to come and not because it lacked vision and input from individuals respected for their knowledge of future trends in the library business. What’s the old saying about trying to make a silk purse out of a sow’s ear?

At age 29, Linda felt a lump in her left breast. She went to her primary care doctor, who said she was too young to have cancer and it didn’t run in her family. The doctor’s advice was to come back the next month. Linda got a second opinion, and a biopsy revealed she had breast cancer. She had surgery, chemotherapy and radiation. She was able to work at the Hallmark Cards plant through the treatments even though she had a catheter coming out of her chest. She remembers going through a cleansing routine at home. She also had to go out of town for care because oncology services were not available. “It has changed so much since 1994,” she said of cancer care. “It was back in the days when you didn’t talk a whole lot about cancer. So, I just kind of kept to myself and my


place a system to monitor whether the toxic chemicals are leaching into the air, soil or groundwater. In the case of debris from the EF5, mile-wide tornado, keeping the landfill wastes separated isn’t easy. “One can only imagine the debris,” said Peggy Macenas, manger of the Midwest region of the National Solid Wastes Management Association. “The breakdown of co-mingled materials is of concern.” The National Solid Wastes Management Association

family and did what I needed to do to get by.” For nine years, Linda was cancer-free. In 2003, she felt a lump on her right breast. It was cancer, and she would again undergo treatment. In 2006, she began having a hard time breathing. A doctor told her it was allergies, but she knew it had to be something else. “I was walking from the parking lot to the front desk at Hallmark and I couldn’t breathe. I would walk down the hallway and I couldn’t breathe.” Once again, she got a second opinion. The doctor found her lungs were full of fluid. She said they took two 2-liter bottles of fluid from her lungs. It was tested and they found lung cancer. Dr. Sherri Soule, of Lawrence Oncology Center, put her on two oral chemotherapy drugs that were part of a national clinical drug trial. The drugs were effective and her cancer disappeared, but she had to go on disability because of the drugs’ side effects: fatigue and

hand-foot syndrome where the toxicity causes burning, pain or peeling of her skin. In 2009, she started getting headaches, so Dr. Soule ran tests and discovered brain cancer. “They cut me from here — all the way up here,” Linda said, pointing to the scar. “They had to cut my skull. I have metal in my head because they couldn’t put the skull back because my bones are so brittle.” She won’t forget the day of her surgery: Aug. 25, 2009. It was the same day that U.S. Sen. Ted Kennedy died of brain cancer. Today, she’s still on the oral chemotherapy drugs and taking one day at a time. Whenever Linda’s tests come back negative, Betty Jo calls it “celebration time.” It’s time to go buy a new outfit, eat out or do something fun. “She gives me very encouraging words,” Linda said.

became interested in the situation because of members who own private landf ill operations in the region. Those landfills are licensed to take the hazardous wastes but are much farther from Joplin. “There are facilities in the area that should be able to take that kind of debris. They are environmentalists that see something happening in the area and question what regulations they have to or should follow,” Macenas said. Bill Bider, KDHE’s director of waste management, said six to eight people are carefully screening the 2,000 tons of debris coming from the tornado damage each day to ensure that hazardous materials don’t find their way into the landfill.

This month at the Lawrence Humane Society

L AWRENCE J OURNAL -WORLD of her brain. So now she’s undergoing radiation for brain and breast cancer. Betty Jo is on a leave of absence from her job and she’s doing just as her sister advised: Taking it one day at a time.

Last October, Linda’s phone rang about 10:30 p.m. “In our family, we say if the phone rings after 10, it’s not

good news,” Linda said. It wasn’t. Betty Jo has been diagnosed with breast cancer. She noticed something in her left chest just didn’t feel right. Several tests came back negative, but Linda still thought something was seriously wrong. Finally, an MRI-guided breast biopsy found the cancer that was close to her chest cavity. She had nine months of chemotherapy and a surgery in March. “In the beginning, it all seems really, really scary. You are overwhelmed,” she said. “There’s so many negative things.” Betty Jo was glad she had her sister to lean on and talk to. “Keep the faith. Keep going forward and just take one day at a time,” Linda advised. Just before starting six weeks of radiation therapy treatments, Betty Jo began getting headaches. At first, she blamed the chemo. She also was off balance, confused and “foggy.” She told Dr. Darren Klish, her radiation oncologist, and he ran some tests. He found five lesions on the right side

“The screening that takes place is probably the most extensive screening of disaster waste taking place in the whole country,” Bider said. A stray aerosol container or paint can that doesn’t get detected by screeners could leach chemicals, but Bider said the groundwater underneath the landfill has already been deemed undrinkable because of years of mining activity that occurred in the region. The water that residents use comes from an aquifer 1,200 to 1,300 feet deep that is separated geologically from the groundwater where any chemicals would leach. That logic is one that Yvonne Cather, chair of the Kansas chapter of the Sierra

Club, questions. “If it is already an impacted area, why put injury to it?” Cather asked. The Galena landfill was picked because it’s several miles from Joplin. The landfills that have the regulations in place to accept the hazardous wastes are about 50 miles away. Trucking all of the hazardous and nonhazardous debris to these landfills would add millions of miles to the cost of cleanup, contribute to carbon emissions and increase the risk of the trucks having accidents on the road. Currently, just hazardous wastes are being trucked these landfills. “So you got to ask yourself all those questions to deter-

mine the wisest thing to do,” Bider said. “We continue to strongly believe this is the best decision.” While the Sierra Club has concerns about the potential for contamination, they believe the landfill is making a “good faith effort” to keep hazardous wastes out of the landfill, and they understand the carbon footprints that trucking wastes 50 miles away would leave behind. Macenas wants the landfill to monitor its groundwater. Because it’s not required by state, Bider doesn’t foresee that happening. “We told (the landf ill) right from the beginning, as long as you’ve got good supportive evidence that screen-



The sisters have been tested for the breast cancer gene. Linda has the gene and Betty Jo does not. The negative test surprised Dr. Soule. “It is stunning and puzzling,” Soule said. “We ran it two or three times because we didn’t believe it.” The results mean that Betty’s four children do not have the gene. Both sisters know all too well how precious life can be. They lost a nephew, Blake McNish, to brain cancer in 2009 at age 11. “When we lost Blake it was devastating, but my God, he was a miracle. He truly was,” Betty Jo said. Blake was diagnosed with cancer when he was just 15 months old. Doctors said he would be in a wheelchair, but he rode a bicycle and went to school.

Linda has made homemade quilts, pillow cases and stocking caps and donated them to Children’s Mercy Hospital where Blake was treated. She also has made hats for the Lawrence Oncology Center. The sisters said their family, which includes four brothers and two other sisters, don’t avoid the c word — cancer— but they also don’t dwell on it. “It does take a lot away from you, but it gives back, too. I know that’s really weird and I should be in here cussing it, but I’m not,” Betty Jo said. The younger sister looks at her glass as half full and keeps a positive attitude. That’s much harder for Linda, who has been battling the disease for 17 years. She said the cancer has taken away so much: kids, strength, job, money, lifestyle, hair, fingernails and toenails. “It takes away everything except family, and that’s who you lean on,” she said. — Health reporter Karrey Britt can be reached at 832-7190.

ing took place as it should, you don’t need to do anything different since it is no different than any other (construction and demolition) landfill in the state of Kansas. It’s just bigger,” Bider said. While Cather doesn’t have much hope that the state will monitor the groundwater, she does think it should prompt an examination of the existing regulations for construction and demolition landfills. “Perhaps we should relook at what our rules are in light of the tornadoes and floods and natural disasters happening more often,” she said. — Reporter Christine Metz can be reached at 832-6352.



I love the staff here at the shelter, but I’ve been here since the cold, dark days of January and need someone to come take me home to join a family this summer. I’m a steady and mature American Staffordshire Terrier, and I have a splendid short brown coat with a little white for flair. I’m alert and a lot of fun to play with. I’ve been professionally trained by bully breed professionals, too!

With my cute floppy ears and darling tri-color coat, I put the “fox” in English Foxhound. I’m only about a year old, and I love to play around and go wherever my sniffer takes me. I need someone who will spend time to help me mature into a special companion. I’m about 50 pounds of pure fun and will need daily exercise to be happy. My breed is known for exceptional hunting skills, and I’m on the hunt for the right home today!

I’m an elegant black cat and a social butterfly. I’m around 4 years old and was taken to the shelter last November when they found me on the streets. Sadly, I’m still here so many months later. I’ve been here too long, and I hope a special someone will come visit me soon. You’ll find I’m calm and affectionate, and really enjoy interacting with people. I get along well with other cats, and right now you can adopt me for free!

I’m the ultimate exercise machine! In fact, I need someone committed to running with me regularly. Moreover, I’m a gorgeous boy: an American Staffordshire Terrier, 3 years old, and I’ve got a rich coat of brindle brown and bright white markings. I’m very energetic outdoors, but inside I’m a true gentleman, stately and steady. I’d prefer to be the only dog in the home — guess I want you all to myself.

I’m a plus-size lady with a marvelous short-haired black and white coat and an extra bunch of love to share. About 4 years old, my previous family dropped me off at the shelter during the cold days of January. Since then, I’ve made lots of friends here in our new colony housing arrangement known as “Catopia.” I get along well with other cats and, as a social butterfly, it fits me well. But I prefer the company of people in a permanent home.

With my distinguished coat of black and white, I’m a regal boy. At four years of age, I’m an experienced master of love and affection. So if you’ve grown tired of immature boys, give me a look. I’m always ready to flaunt my good looks, and I’m really into people. Pet me, play with me — I’m ready for all the affection we can muster up. To fully appreciate me, you have to see me. Oh yes, I’m for real — MicKinley is Mic-marvelous!

A was found as a stray last winter. The shelter has given me a place to stay with people who care, but I’ve been here long enough! I am about 3 years old and really love to be around people — so I’d be a heck of a lap cat. However, I like to be an “only child” when it comes to sharing a home with other pets. My lovely long-haired coat has a brownish cast that you’ll enjoy petting over and over.

Young activists honor civil rights movement ————

‘Food and Freedom’ tour making stop at Dole Institute of Politics By Christine Metz

In the spring and summer of 1961, black and white civil rights activists rode buses throughout the segregated South to challenge discrimination laws. Those riders were savagely beaten and arrested. But they also inspired many others to follow in their footsteps and become involved in the civil rights movement. Fifty years later, a group of young food activists are boarding a bus in Birmingham, Ala., where Ku Klux Klan members mercilessly attacked the Freedom Riders in 1961, and are riding it north to Detroit. Their mission is to raise awareness of the dispar-

ity in food access, an issue that they say has ties to the same social injustices the Freedom Riders were challenging. The group, which has dubbed the event the “Food and Freedom Ride,” will stop at the Dole Institute of Politics on Aug. 12 to share stories of their journey and how those lessons connect to the civil rights movement. Their visit coincides with the final day of the Dole Institute’s “Freedom Riders” photo exhibit. The riders are part of Live Real, an organization of young people from across the country who want to create a food system that makes “real food the norm — not the exception.” Among their chief con-

Man seriously hurt in downtown altercation A 22-year-old man suffered serious injuries early Friday morning following an altercation in the 800 block of Massachusetts Street. According to Lawrence police Sgt. Susan Hadl, witnesses said the 22-year-old man was walking south on Massachusetts Street when a vehicle rolled by and items were thrown at him. Hadl said the man and the occupants of the vehicle exchanged words. The driver of the vehicle then parked, exited the vehicle and punched the man, whose head struck the ground. Police were called about 1:45 a.m. Emergency crews on scene washed blood off the sidewalk while medics tended to the victim. The assailant fled north in a silver crossover vehicle, possibly a Dodge Journey. The suspect was described as a black man of average height and build with three-inch curly hair. Calls were made to determine the availability of a helicopter, but the victim was ultimately taken by ambulance to a Kansas City hospital. Hadl urged anyone with information about the incident to call police at 785-832-7650, or Crime Stoppers at 785-843TIPS. No additional information about the incident or condition of the victim was available Friday evening.

KANSAS CITY, MO. — Federal investigators are hoping electronic billboards along highways in Kansas, Missouri and Oklahoma will help them nab a suspect in seven robberies in those states.


The most recent heist tied to a man the FBI calls the “Fake Beard Bandit” happened Wednesday in Olathe, Kan. The suspect also is believed to have robbed four banks in Oklahoma between May 24 and June 29, one bank in Joplin, Mo., on July 13, and one in Shawnee, Kan., on July 25. He is described as being in his mid-20s to 30s, 5-foot-8 to 6 feet tall, weighing 150 to 180 pounds. In most cases the robber went inside the bank an hour or two before the robbery wearing sunglasses, then came back later wearing a fake beard and demanded money.

• A 28-year-old Lawrence resident reported to Lawrence police Thursday the theft of DJ equipment and other personal property from the 2500 block of Ponderosa Drive. According to a police report, the incident occurred between 5:40 a.m. and 6 a.m. Thursday. Among the items reported stolen were four laptop computers and two credit cards. The total estimated loss from the incident was $3,224. • Corpus Christi Catholic Church reported to Lawrence police Wednesday the theft of a John Deere Gator from the 6000 block of Bob Billings Parkway. According to a police report,


EL DORADO — Zebra mussels have returned in force to the El Dorado Reservoir this summer. Craig Johnson, a state fisheries biologist for the lake, says summer testing found 114 zebra mussel larvae per liter of lake water. Last year, the figure was 4.5 per liter. The Wichita Eagle reported Friday that the increase comes after three years of declines in zebra mussels at the reservoir. El Dorado was the first lake in Kansas infested with zebra mussels in 2003. The population peaked in 2006 before beginning to decline in 2007. Johnson said the population might have increased because almost no water was released from the reservoir this year. Zebra mussels clog intake structures at power and water plants and can crowd out native species.

the incident occurred between February and March of this year. The equipment was valued at $6,800.

It’s repairing the social infrastructure that led to the need,” said Brett Ramey, one of the founders of the group who is now a community health worker with the Center for American Indian Community Health at the Kansas University Medical Center.


ALEC, which includes legislators and representatives of corporate interests who write proposed legislation that is then introduced in state capitols nationwide, is holding its annual meeting in New Orleans from Wednesday through today. At least 19 Kansas legislators, all Republicans, are attending, according to the Kansas Division of Legislative Administrative Services. They include state Sens.

“Freedom Riders were all about increasing racial and social equality. The black and whites traveling around were fed up with the way they and their neighbors had been treated, whether formally or informally,” Ramey said. “We’re seeing the same parallels where we have the need to revitalize the food system.” Part of the organization’s goal is to raise awareness about projects that have increased access to healthy foods, such as programs in Detroit. On Aug. 12, the Dole Institute, 2350 Petefish Drive, will host the group for a brown bag lunch starting at noon.

Syria says revolt is Fight for food leaves 7 dead quelled SOMALIA

B E I R U T — Syria’s government showed off TV and still images of burned buildings and rubble-strewn streets empty of people in Hama, the epicenter of anti-regime protests, and claimed Friday it was putting an end to the rebellion in the besieged city. Under the suffocating clampdown, residents of the city warned that medical supplies were running out and food was rotting after six days without electricity. Across the country, tens of thousands of protesters marched, chanting their solidarity with Hama and demanding the ouster of President Bashar Assad. They were met by security forces who opened fire, killing at least 13 people, activists said. The U.S. State Department on Friday urged Americans to leave the country immediately. Government forces began their ferocious assault on Hama Sunday, cutting off electricity, phone services and Internet and blocking supplies into the city of 800,000 as they shelled neighborhoods and sent in tanks and ground raids. It appeared to be an all-out attempt to take back the city — which has a history of dissent — after residents all but took it over since June, barricading it against the regime. Rights group say at least 100 people have been killed, while some estimates put the number as high as 250. The tolls could not be verified because of the difficulty reaching residents and hospital officials in the city, where journalists are barred as they are throughout Syria. Tanks shelled residential districts of Hama starting around 4 a.m. Friday, just as people were beginning their daily fast for the Muslim holy month of Ramadan — mirroring a bombardment the evening before at sunset, when people were breaking the fast, one resident told The Associated Press. “If people get wounded, it is almost impossible to take them to hospital,” the resident said by telephone, speaking on condition of anonymity for fear of retaliation. Syrian state media on Friday proclaimed army units were “working to restore security, stability and normal life to Hama,” which it said had been taken over by “terrorists.” The message mirrored the regime’s claim that armed extremists seeking to destabilize the country are behind the unrest, as opposed to true reform-seekers. For the first time since the siege began, government-run TV and the state news agency aired images of the ravaged streets of Hama, strewn with debris, damaged vehicles and makeshift barricades. In one, a yellow taxi was shown with a dead man in the driver’s seat and bloodstains on the door. A tank cleared away a large cement barrier and a bus with shattered windows. There were no reports of protests in the city during the day Friday — a contrast to previous weeks when hundreds of thousands participated in the biggest marches in the country. A citizen journalist from Hama working with an online global activist group, Avaaz, told AP that people were now too afraid to go to the mosques, which were being targeted by the military. The man, who identified himself as Sami, described the humanitarian situation as “catastrophic.” Everything was closed, including bakeries and pharmacies, he said. “There are sick people, people with diabetes who have run out of insulin ... The food has spoiled because there’s no electricity,” he said. “You cannot imagine how tired and terrified people are.” Hama has seen government crackdowns before. In 1982, Assad’s father, Hafez Assad, ordered the military to quell a rebellion by Syrian members of the conservative Muslim Brotherhood movement there, sealing off the city in an assault that killed between 10,000 and 25,000 people.

MOGADISHU , S OMALIA — A World Food Program handout of corn rations to Somalis trying to survive a famine turned deadly Friday after government troops opened fire, killing at least seven, witnesses said. Residents of Mogadishu’s largest famine refugee camp accused government soldiers of starting the chaos by trying to steal some of the 290 tons of dry rations that aid workers were trying to distribute there. Then refugees joined in the scramble, prompting soldiers to open fire, the witnesses said. “They fired on us as if we were their enemy,” said refugee Abidyo Geddi. “When people started to take the food, then the gunfire started and everyone was being shot. We cannot stay here much longer. We don’t get much food and the rare food they bring causes death and torture.” The chaos underscores the dangers and challenges of getting help to a nation that has been essentially ungoverned for two decades and now has a severe famine sweeping through it. There are 9,000 African Union soldiers in the capital, but their main mission is to fight alQaida linked Islamists, not safeguard humanitarian aid. Aid workers are puzzling over how to help the starving without helping gunmen who either prey on the refugees, compete for security contracts to guard the food, or steal it and take a share of the profits when it’s sold at market. The situation echoes the 1992 famine that prompted deployment of a U.S.-led multinational force to safeguard the delivery of food to Somalia’s starving. That international intervention collapsed in 1993 after two U.S. Black Hawk helicopters

● Italy pledged on Friday

to work swiftly for a constitutional amendment requiring the government to balance its budget as Rome feverishly tried to assure domestic and foreign investors its finances are sound and calm nervous markets in Europe. Premier Silvio Berlusconi told a hastily convened evening news conference the government will “speed up measures” in its budget law approved last month by Parliament, “with the possibility of reaching a balanced budget by 2013 instead of 2014” as first planned. His conservative government, now more than three years into its five-year term, will also work to amend the Constitution to include a requirement for a balanced budget, Berlusconi said.

A DISPLACED SOMALI WOMAN CARRIES HER BELONGINGS on her back as she moves from Mogadishu’s Badbado camp, which many displaced families are deserting after a firefight between Somali government forces and militiamen looting food aid left at least seven people dead Friday. were shot down and 18 servicemen were killed in one single battle in Mogadishu. U.S. and U.N. off icials acknowledge that some aid in Somalia is bound to be stolen during delivery. “Will there be losses? Sure. Will there be some looting? Of course there will be. What we have to do is try to minimize it,” said WFP spokesman David Orr. “This is the highest risk environment in the world ... the safety of our staff and getting food into the right hands are our highest priorities.” Friday’s food distribution was organized by Mogadishu’s mayor and had been delayed two days as officials tried to shore up security arrangements. Orr told The Associated Press that the food distribution started smoothly at around 6 a.m. but degenerated a couple hours later. “We got reports of trouble, looting. The trucks were overwhelmed by a mob of people. There were reports of some shots fired,” said Orr, who said he could not confirm any death tolls. One of the camp’s refugees, Muse Sheik Ali, said soldiers

first tried to steal some of the food aid, and that other refugees began to take the food. “Then soldiers opened fire at them, and seven people, including elderly people, were killed on the spot. Then soldiers took the food and people fled from the camp,” he said. A Western official said the distribution went smoothly until more displaced families and gunmen arrived. The official could not be identified because he is not authorized by his employer to be quoted by the press. No details on which militia the gunmen may have belonged to were available. At least four militias prowl government-controlled areas of Mogadishu, their gunmen roaring around in pick-up trucks. Thousands of Somalis have flooded into Mogadishu from the drought-stricken south. Many have walked for hundreds of miles and buried family members along the way. The drought and famine in Somalia have killed more than 29,000 children under the age of 5 in the last 90 days in southern Somalia alone, according to U.S. estimates.




Jobs report good enough to calm Wall Street

By Christopher S. Rugaber Associated Press Writer

WASHINGTON — Better. The job market beat expectations, and the stock market managed a modest gain — not great, but good enough after a turbulent week. The nation added 117,000 jobs in July, the government said Friday — far from what happens in a healthy economy, and only good for a reduction of one notch in the unemployment rate, to 9.1 percent. But the jobs number beat the forecast of economists, who were expecting no more than 90,000. And it was an overwhelming relief for investors, who just lived through two of the most brutal weeks in Wall Street history. “Nothing to pop Champagne corks over,” said Diane Swonk, chief economist at Mesirow Financial, “but a much-needed shot in the arm for confidence at a time when we have so little.” But when they come back on Monday, investors will have to absorb another body blow: Late Friday, ratings agency Standard & Poor’s downgraded the United States’ debt for the first time, saying the government’s debt-reduction plans fall short. The downgrade could lead to higher interest rates and further hamper the economic recovery. The Dow Jones industrial average finished Friday with a gain of 60.93 points and closed at 11,444.61. It made up

only a small fraction of the losses from Thursday, when the Dow dropped 512, its worst since the financial crisis of 2008. Friday was not exactly quiet for the market, either. At the start of trading, investors were thrilled with the unemployment report, and the Dow rose 171. Ten minutes later, the gains were gone. Investors focused on Europe, which is struggling to keep Italy and Spain from being consumed by a growing financial crisis, and the Dow fell 243. “The fear was that they had no plan to deal with the situation,” said Randy Warren, chief investment officer at Warren Financial Service. The Dow’s gain was only its second in the past 11 trading sessions. The average has lost about 10 percent of its value in that time. The Standard & Poor’s 500, a broader measure of the market, finished just under 1,200, down a fraction of a point. It was the Dow’s worst week since March 2009, down 5.8 percent. The S&P, down 7.2 percent, and the Nasdaq composite index, down 8.1 percent, had their worst weeks since November of that year. The gain of 117,000 jobs for the U.S. economy looked even better considering that 37,000 public jobs disappeared during the month. Most of those were from a temporary government shutdown in Minnesota.

Lawrence-Douglas County planners have been working on the Northeast Sector plan since 2009. The plan is meant to serve as a future guide for development for all of Grant Township, which is north of North Lawrence and includes the area around the Lawrence Municipal Airport. Planning commissioners approved the plan in September on a narrow vote. But Douglas County commissioners rejected

the plan over concerns about stormwater drainage, commercial development and the loss of prime agricultural ground. The plan will be sent back to the Lawrence-Douglas County Planning Commission for further consideration. At Tuesday’s meeting, city commissioners will be asked to review the plan and provide any comments they want planning commissioners to consider.

Compromise possible for super-committee WASHINGTON — Conventional wisdom holds that the congressional super-committee established by the debt-ceiling deal to propose further deficit reduction will go nowhere. I’m not so sure. There is a grand compromise to be had. It does, however, require precise sequencing. To succeed it must proceed in three stages: 1. Tax reform. True tax reform that removes loopholes while lowering tax rates is the Holy Grail of social policy. It appeals equally to left and right because, almost uniquely, it promotes both economic efficiency and fairness. Economic eff iciency — because it removes tax dodges that distort capital flows (and thereby diminish productivity) while cutting marginal tax rates (thereby spurring growth). Fairness — because a corrupted tax code with myriad breaks grants deeply unfair advantage to the rich who buy the lobbyists who create the loopholes and buy the lawyers who exploit them. Which is why the 1986 ReaganBradley tax reform was such a historic success. It satisfied left and right, promoted efficiency and fairness, and helped launch two decades of almost uninterrupted economic expansion. But didn’t that agreement take years to hammer out? Yes. Today, however, the elements are already laid out by the Simpson-Bowles commission. The super-committee doesn’t have to reinvent the wheel. It simply has to make choices. 2. Revenue neutrality. Every dollar of revenue raised by

Charles Krauthammer

Once you have serious “revenue-neutral tax reform in place, the ideological horsetrading that is required for massive deficit reduction — tax hikes versus entitlement reform — can begin.”

stripping out a loophole is to be returned to the citizenry in the form of lower tax rates. Initial revenue neutrality avoids ideological gridlock over tax hikes and ensures perfect transparency during any later alterations of that formula. Start with the obvious boondoggles, from the $6 billion a year wasted on ethanol subsidies to your Democratic perennials — corporate jets, oil company breaks, etc. That’s the fun part. Unfortunately, whacking that pinata yields but pennies on the dollar. The real money is in the popular tax breaks: employer-provided health insurance, mortgage interest and charitable contributions. Altering some of these heretofore politically

untouchable tax breaks would alone be a singular achievement. I’d suggest abolishing the health care exclusion, which encourages wasteful medical spending. I would also gradually abolish the mortgageinterest deduction. Start by excluding second homes and mortgages greater than, say, $500,000. Lower that threshold by $100,000 chunks as the housing market meets certain threshold indexes of recovery. As for charitable contributions, here I go soft. I’d leave the deduction intact on the Madisonian grounds that subsidizing private charity — donations to institutions chosen by the citizens, not the state — disperses power and strengthens civil society, the principal bulwark against state domination. Your preferences will be different. So will the super-committee’s. It doesn’t matter. What’s important is to make choices that are deep, radical and revenue-neutral. But, you say, is not the committee’s mission to reduce debt? This, as yet, does nothing. Correct. But it’s the indispensable premise for achieving the ultimate in debt reduction: 3. The Grand Bargain. Once you have serious revenueneutral tax reform in place, the ideological horse-trading that is required for massive deficit reduction — tax hikes versus entitlement reform — can begin. Republicans will resist the former, Democrats the latter. But tax-reformfirst makes possible the compromise that eluded John Boehner and Barack

Lawrence School Board

Obama. Boehner was willing to increase revenues by $800 billion. Obama was reputedly ready to raise the Medicare age and change the Social Security cost-of-living formula. Remember: Tax reform will already have slashed rates radically. In one Simpson-Bowles scenario, the top rate plunges to 23 percent. Conservatives could at that point contemplate increasing net revenues by slightly tweaking these new low rates, say, back to Reagan’s 28 percent, still much lower than the current 35 percent and Obama’s devoutly desired 39.6 percent. The deviation from revenue neutrality would yield new tax receipts for the Treasury, in addition to those resulting from the economic growth stimulated by the lower rates. Democrats would have to respond by crossing their own red line on entitlements. That means real structural changes. That means raising the Medicare and Social Security ages, indexing them to longevity (until 70 becomes the new 65) and changing the inflation formula. Perhaps even means-testing Social Security (after one has recouped what one originally paid in). The result of such a grand bargain would be debt reduction on a scale never before seen. World confidence in the American economy would rise dramatically. Best of all, we would be back on the road to national solvency. It can be done. In three months. In three stages. — Charles Krauthammer is a columnist for Washington Post Writers Group.

From the Lawrence Daily Journal-World for Aug. 6, 1911: YEARS “A special elecAGO tion has been called IN 1911 by the mayor of Lecompton, Dr. C. C. Kerr, for the purpose of voting on the proposition of issuing bonds for the purchase of a municipal electric light plant. The election has been called for August 15 and the indications are that the bonds will carry and Lecompton will within a year be lighted by the most modern light system in use. [City officials] have estimated that a plant can be put in at a cost of $2,600 which would at present adequately supply electricity to the city. The capacity of such a plant would be about 7.5 Kilowatts and could easily light 30 60-watt Tungsten street lamps, leaving more than enough electricity to supply the customers. It would be run by a 10horse power engine and have modern adjustments which would demand a very small amount of work for running the plant.”

The Eff iciency Kansas home energy audit program is exactly the sort of public-private partnership that we should be pursuing as we look for ways to improve the economy in our state. It is not a handout. It is not an expansion of big government. Efficiency Kansas is a smart way to create jobs and promote small business while improving the lives, homes and limited budgets of Kansans across the state. With only a few public employees running the program, it has provided the opportunity for dozens of local energy auditors to Shrum grow their own small businesses. It has put contractors to work. It has provided the opportunity for hundreds of Kansans to make improvements on their homes that will help them reduce their monthly utility bills and increase the value and comfort of their homes. It reduces the need to build new coal plants to meet the demand for electricity. All the while, it reduces the pollution going into our local air and water and shrinks our carbon footprint. This program has been ramping up over the past year. Auditors have been hiring and training new employees to meet the demand they expected to see from the $32 million of federal stimulus funds for a revolving loan program to help residents make energy efficiency improvements on their homes. This loan fund would provide Kansans a renewable source of funding. As the efficiency loans are repaid with savings on cus-

tomers’ energy bills, they can be loaned out again to more households for decades to come. But the recent move by the Brownback administration to gut the loan fund has saddled a rising industry with major uncertainty. It has also left Kansans who have already had audits and were ready to make major improvements to reduce their energy consumption sorely disappointed. Even more, it will erase economic opportunity, energy efficiency and monetary savings now and long into the future. This move will reduce jobs, weaken small businesses, increase household living costs and generate more pollution for our air, lakes and rivers. The Brownback administration has diverted most of the money to the biofuel industry, a sector that has incredible levels of government support while providing little benefit for individuals or the environment. This is simply not the time to take money away from small businesses and homeowners in order to give even more subsidies to programs with questionable merit. This decision is one that should be condemned by liberals and conservatives alike. Efficiency Kansas exemplifies the pragmatic ideals that all Kansans can agree upon and should be hailed as a flagship model of public-private partnership, not gutted at the very moment it is taking off. — Trisha Shrum of Lawrence is a doctoral candidate at the Harvard Kennedy School of Government and has worked with Efficiency Kansas as part of her research on energyefficiency economics.

Vonnegut library supplies copies of banned book By Tom Lo Bianco Associated Press Writer

I N D I A N A P O L I S — The Kurt Vonnegut Memorial Library stepped into the fray after a Missouri high school banned one of the Indiana-born author’s best-known books. The Indianapolis library plans to ship copies of “Slaughterhouse-Five” to families in Republic, Mo., who ask for them, Library executive director Julia Whitehead said Friday. Republic’s school board last week banned the 1969 cult classic that portrays the cruel absurdity of war from Republic High School. The school board also banned Sarah Ockler’s “Twenty Boy Summer.” Whitehead says she’s been working with the Indiana and Missouri chapters of the American Civil Liberties Union to send up to 150 copies of “SlaughterhouseFive” to the Missouri town. Four families have requested copies of the book already, she said, and the library plans

to begin mailing them next week. Wesley Scroggins, a Missouri State University professor who home-schools his children, petitioned successfully to ban the books. Scroggins said previously that the books’ content is profane and violates teachings of the Bible. But Republic Superintendent Vern Minor said he suggested the school remove the books because they are better suited for college students. “Vonnegut always thought it was important for all Americans to be able to participate in the democratic process,” Whitehead said Friday. Students who are almost old enough to vote and fight in wars are responsible enough to handle Vonnegut’s classic novel about war, she said. Scroggins argued in a column in the Springfield (Mo.) News-Leader last year that Vonnegut’s book mocked Jesus Christ and was filled with enough profane language to “make a sailor blush with shame.”

Craft Spells Did the Jackpot travel back in time to summer 1987? Because the music coming from tonight’s band, Craft Spells, certainly sounds like it came from the closing credits of a John Hughes movie. The Stockton, Calif., band lovingly acknowledges the decade of decadence, deregulation and Reaganomics without becoming such a warped parody that its novelty caves in on itself (I’m looking at you, The Bravery). The band’s sound invokes several bands from the era, but New Order is definitely the most direct influence both in vocal presentation and production. They are joined by Kansas City’s Umberto, who similarly specializes in synth and layered production. And flying in the face of all of that is Major Games, who make straightforward, fist-pumping rock ‘n’ roll with distorted basslines, dueling guitars and driving percussion that moves the songs forward with reckless abandon. Tonight’s show starts at 10 p.m. and is for adults 18 and older.

Asia’s adversity

KANSAS UNIVERSITY NEWCOMER ASIA BOYD IS PICTURED on July 20. After a fire destroyed her Detroit home during her senior year of high school, Boyd spent her final semester living with her basketball coach.

Freshman Boyd had ‘rough’ run of luck By Jesse Newell

Two hours after she graduated on June 6, Asia Boyd’s journey from Detroit to Lawrence began on a Greyhound bus. The long trip wasn’t fun. Upon waking up, there were times the 6foot-1 Kansas University freshman guard noticed that a stranger would be staring at her. Boyd — the No. 39 player in the class of 2011, according to ESPN HoopGurlz — was originally going to drive down in a rental car with her mother, Alanna, but plans changed at the last minute. Alanna was between paychecks, and the cost became too expensive. Like it has so many times before, the Boyd family made the best of a tough financial situation. After borrowing some money, Alanna helped Asia book a $183 ticket to make it to college. “Through life experiences, I kept reminding (my children), ‘Do not forget what the hell we’ve been through. Please,’” Alanna said. “It’s been rough.” ❋❋❋

The Boyd family always has figured out a way to make it through tough times in Detroit, starting in 2003 when Alanna was involved in a car accident. Though she was experiencing pain, things turned worse late one night when one of the discs in her back popped out, paralyzing her temporarily from the waist down. Alanna was rushed to the hospital for emergency surgery.

Afterward, Asia wouldn’t let her take it easy. Following classes and workouts, she’d return home to make sure to get her mom moving at least a half hour a day. The training worked. Soon, Alanna strengthened herself to the point she was walking again. Another setback came in 2005. Asia’s father, Shawn Sr., who loaded trucks for Sysco, noticed after returning home one day that the right side of his back was out of alignment. The work-related injury — which involved four of the lower discs in his back — left him unable to work and forced him into disability. Even now, he has to take an extended break after staying on his feet too long. The family’s financial problems became worse two years ago, when Alanna was laid off from her medical-billing job. The family of six was forced to live off Shawn’s disability — which totaled $18,000 per year.

ASIA BOYD, CENTER, with parents Alanna, left, and Shawn Senior. The Boyds’ living situation became scrambled. After losing their home, they rented from three locations before eventually purchasing a land-contract house. When the family moved in, there were no pipes, sinks or toilets; they had to furnish it all themselves. When a brother-in-law lost a property, Shawn and Alanna moved quickly to grab the useful parts.

“The crackheads were breaking in and stripping his house. They were already taking pipes out,” Alanna said. “I had to go in faster than the crackheads to strip this house for what was in it.” Without a moving truck, the two loaded up a stove, refrigerator, toilets, sinks, faucets, mirrors and medicine cabinets and hauled them to their new home. Alanna also helped stock the house by dumpster-diving. When one woman moved out nearby, she told Alanna she was free to take anything that was put out by the trash. The family took in four couches, a bankers desk and lamps, among other things. It still was a struggle. There were multiple times when the family’s power would go out because they couldn’t keep up on payments. Whenever Asia needed to work on a computer for homework, she had to go to a friend’s house. There were times the family also relied upon church donations for food. When the gas was turned off, the family had to get creative. They’d eat hamburgers and hot dogs in the winter, because they’d be able to grill those foods on the barbecue outside. When they were without power, they’d also end up cooking food on their kerosene heater, which was warm enough to bake fish and vegetables like broccoli. “I’m not saying that any of this Please see BOYD, page 3B

Thursday’s first practice of the season marked the first time Kansas University offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach Chuck Long had the opportunity to work with freshmen QBs Brock Berglund and Michael Cummings. As much as he enjoyed the chance to see the two threestar prospects Berglund up close, Long said one day was not nearly enough time to make a true evaluation on either player. The most telling moments will come in the Cummings next few practices. “We’ll see how much they can comprehend, see how much they know, see how much they can consume and retain,” Long said. “Those are the big things with young quarterbacks. If they make a good throw, can they make the same throw or do they forget about it and misread it?” Thursday, teammates and coaches said both players did enough to show why they were ranked so high coming out of high school. At 6-foot-4, 205 pounds, Berglund is the bigger of the two, but Cummings, at 6-foot, 196, also possesses decent size. The biggest thing both players bring to the roster is the ability to make plays with their arm and their legs. A couple of Jayhawks said Berglund and Cummings showed that Thursday, but most of the day was spent throwing the ball and demonstrating how much of the playbook they had learned. With things only getting more intense in the coming weeks, Long cautioned about making a read too soon. “This (was) Day One and Base One defensively, too,” Long said. “They see very simple things for a while.” Because of the team’s overall experience and renewed focus, the simple stuff might not stick around as long as it did a season ago. Long said that would be by design. “We ran a lot of football plays today,” he said Thursday. “We taxed ’em really good. Our pace was good, much faster than the first day last year, and that’s gonna help us. Hey, it’s gonna be a tough camp. It really is. We’re giving them a lot. They gotta fight through it. There’s gonna be that mental strain. It’s coming.” So, too, is a heavy dose of the offense. “We’re gonna have a lot of our offense installed early,” Long said. “It’s the flood theory. Flood ’em early, and then repeat, repeat, repeat and see how much they can pick up.” ● KU football notebook on

Touted point guard Reese picks A&M over Jayhawks By Gary Bedore

One of the top point guards in the college basketball recruiting Class of 2012 on Friday orally committed to Texas A&M. J-Mychal Reese, a 6-foot-2, 170pound senior out of Bryan (Texas) High, chose Billy Kennedy’s Aggies over Kansas University, Louisville, Texas, Baylor, Memphis and others.

The Houston Chronicle reports that Reese’s dad, Bryan High coach John Reese, is expected to join Kennedy’s coaching staff as a full-time assistant. New NCAA rules forbid hiring relatives of players to positions such as director of basketball operations or video coordinator, only to full-time assistant-coaching posts. “(J-Mychal) knows some of

the key guys on the staff,” John Reese told’s Dave Telep on Friday. Former KU staff member Kyle Keller and former Memphis aide Glynn Cyprien are two members of Kennedy’s staff. The third slot is still open. “We've known coach Kennedy for years. I met him several years back when he was at Centenary. I think some of the things that really sold Mike was his style of play at Murray State. They play

up-tempo and play in attack mode,” John Reese added. Reese, who is ranked No. 59 nationally by, averaged 28 points a game his junior year. He said he plans to help turn A&M into a power by helping recruit other top players “I’ve got to bring Chris Washburn (Duncanville High), Prince Ibeh (Forest High, Garland, Texas) and try to get Marcus Smart (Marcus High, Flower Mound, Texas)

and try to talk to Shabazz MuhamI’ll look mad (Gorman High, Las Vegas) forward to and Winston Shepard (Findlay making Prep, Henderson, Nev.),” he told “I’ll look forward to history and making history and doing it in the doing it in the place where I’m from.” Reese’s home in Bryan is just place where 10 miles from A&M’s campus. I’m from.” “At the beginning of July, I didn’t know,” Reese said. “Then I — Guard J’Mychal Reese Please see RECRUIT, page 3B

NFL’s most polarizing figure? QB Tebow By Drew Sharp Detroit Free Press

DETROIT — Nobody should get this passionate over whether a quarterback succeeds in the NFL, but Tim Tebow has become football’s embodiment of the Red State-Blue State political divide. He’s a paragon of moral rectitude to one side — a positive example for a culture devoid of values and should be afforded every opportunity to succeed. Denver should play him right now. He will win, because that’s all he has done throughout his life. Who cares if everybody already knows he couldn’t accurately throw a ball into the water even if standing in a boat? He’s a product of wishful hype to the other side — built into something much bigger than he realistically could achieve given his obvious technical flaws. The worship builds to a point where the detractors fervently hope for his failure if for no other reason than to gleefully rub the opposition’s faces in the mud. By no fault of his own, Tebow has become a polarizing figure. His jersey ranks among the NFL’s top sellers, but it’s apparent that allegiance has little to do with how tall he stands on the field, but rather what he stands for off the field. All the second-year pro has done is to be honest with himself and his faith. He’s an unconventional quarterback and perhaps an even more unconventional person within today’s more loosely interpreted mores. He unapologetically lives a devoutly religious life. More power to him. But those who have de-emphasized Tebow as an actual person and turned him into a symbol have diminished themselves. And if you don’t agree with that particular point of view, no matter how rational and objective the argument, you’re branded a “hater.” That has become the ultimate buzzword in this anonymously written, Internetdriven communication structure. If you can’t logically argue against someone, just call him a hater. Somehow, that justifies a contrary opinion. I’m not wrong. THEY are. They’re why politics in this country reeks. The problem isn’t the politician. The fault lies in a process hijacked by the opposing sides of left-right extremism, both equally fluid in spewing incendiary rhetoric that effectively has killed the concept of governing. Sides are chosen and never crossed. The middle ground is the haven for the heretics. There is no consensus with Tebow. Either you love him or loathe him. How ridiculous is that? This is just the NFL. It’s mind-boggling how Tebow’s status with the Broncos even became an issue worth debating. Either he’s good enough or he isn’t. It’s pretty simple. The rest doesn’t matter. ESPN football analyst Merril Hoge — a former NFL player whose job description is to critique, not cheerlead — strongly expressed doubts that Tebow could succeed because of flaws in his throwing mechanics and his discomfort in operating out of a pro-style system. It’s a valid criticism. Tebow never has been an accurate passer. He never had to be at Florida. He’s a quarterback who functions best in crisis. But shouldn’t an NFL quarterback’s first priority be to avoid such crises in the first place? But you’d think Hoge thought Tebow was an al-Qaida operative considering the public reaction. Even LeBron James tweeted, ripping the messenger instead of listening to the message with an open mind. It shouldn’t surprise, though. There’s little room for listening when everybody’s too busy screaming.


Four share Firestone lead; Tiger falters AKRON, OHIO — Rickie Fowler had eight birdies and an eagle to give himself another shot at winning. Adam Scott did well enough to stay in the lead. PGA Tour rookie Keegan Bradley got in on the action late. It seemed as if everyone was in contention Friday at the Bridgestone Invitation- Fowler al. Except for the guy most everyone came to see. On another soft day that was ripe for low scores, Tiger Woods missed a twofoot putt and didn’t make enough birdies to atone for his short-game mistakes during a 1-over 71 that left him in the middle of the pack. He was only seven shots Woods behind, but had 35 players in front of him at Firestone. “Today was not very good,” Woods said. It was good enough for Scott, except for making the putts he holed in the opening round of this World Golf Championship. He had a 70, which is never bad at Firestone in any condition. After opening with a 62, Scott was at 8under 132 along with Ryan Moore (66), Fowler (64) and Bradley (65). Jason Day bogeyed his last hole for a 70 and was one shot behind with Martin Laird (67) and Robert Karlsson (65).

GOLF Two-time Reno winner Taylor leads RENO, NEV. — Vaughn Taylor’s only two career wins on the PGA tour have come at the Reno-Tahoe Open, where he’s making a bid to claim a third after a 6-under-par 66 on Friday gave him a one-shot lead over Will MacKenzie. Taylor had an eagle and four birdies, then parred the last five holes to move to 9-under 135 at Montreux Golf & Country Club, where his victories in 2004 and 2005 make him the 13-year-old tourney’s only two-time winner.

Haas, Huston share 3M lead BLAINE, MINN. — Jay Haas often looks at the scoreboard during his round. What he saw with four holes to play Friday wasn’t the most pleasing number. Coming off back-to-back bogeys after missing short putts, Haas birdied the final four holes en route to an 8-under 64 to share the lead with John Huston after the first round of the 3M Championship. Haas also recorded an ace during his round.

NFL Steelers sign Woodley to 6 years LATROBE, PA. — LaMarr Woodley didn’t groan when the Pittsburgh Steelers slapped him with a franchise tag. He didn’t panic, either. His goal was always to remain with the defending AFC champions, and the news of the contract that will keep him in black-and-gold was so good he couldn’t keep it to himself. Rather than get some extra rest entering the second week of training camp, Woodley took to Twitter around 6 a.m. Friday morning to break the news about his six-year, $61.5 million deal.

Jags, TE Lewis agree for $35M JACKSONVILLE, FLA. — Marcedes Lewis went through last season, the NFL lockout and the first week of training camp without a longterm contract. He always figured it would get done. It just took longer than expected. Lewis signed a five-year contract worth about $35 million with the Jaguars on Friday, locking up the Pro Bowl tight end for what both sides believes will be the prime of his career. Lewis will get nearly $17 million guaranteed.

Ex-Jets O-lineman Woody retires FLORHAM PARK, N.J. — Damien Woody was always there at his locker after games, ready to answer questions after a big win or even a disappointing loss. And most of the time, the big offensive lineman did it with a smile.

Woody officially announced his retirement from football after 12 seasons Friday and will join ESPN as an NFL studio analyst.

No timetable for Eagles’ Patterson BETHLEHEM, PA. — Mike Patterson returned to the Eagles’ camp Friday two days after his seizure at practice. There is no timetable for when the defensive tackle can return, and questions linger if his career can even resume. Patterson spoke to coach Andy Reid for a few minutes before the afternoon session. He walked into the building without answering questions. Patterson was scheduled to see a neurologist in the next few days, agent J.R. Rickert said.

Goodell, Smith sign 10-year deal CANTON, OHIO — NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell and NFLPA head DeMaurice Smith each grabbed a side of the massive 300-page collective bargaining agreement between the players and league owners and exchanged a relieved handshake while posing for the cameras. 1 And just like that, 4 ⁄2 months of acrimony, anger and posturing from both sides during the protracted NFL lockout was over. Smith and Goodell signed the new CBA on a makeshift stage on the steps of the Pro Football Hall of Fame Friday morning, a largely ceremonial gesture after the players agreed to ratify the 10-year agreement Thursday night.

Raiders nab tight end Boss NAPA, CALIF. — The Oakland Raiders have signed free agent tight end Kevin Boss. The team announced the signing Friday, three days after losing Pro Bowler Zach Miller to Seattle in free agency.

In the second half of a summer league game at Dyckman Park in Washington Heights, Beasley was jawing back and forth with a fan who was getting on his case. Then Beasley shoved the fan’s face, and security intervened. A guard and teammates led the former Kansas State star away from the fan, though Beasley later shook the fan’s hand.

COLLEGE BASKETBALL Woman files appeal in Pitino case LOUISVILLE, KY. — The woman convicted of trying to extort University of Louisville basketball coach Rick Pitino has asked a federal appeals court to overturn her conviction and seven-year prison sentence. Attorneys for 51-year-old Karen Cunagin Sypher filed a brief with the U.S. 6th Circuit Court of Appeals Thursday night, claiming a broad conspiracy involving Pitino, the federal trial judge and Sypher’s former attorney to ensure she would be found guilty.

Chiefs have options in return game for a change ST. JOSEPH, MO. (AP) — The Chiefs’ return game got off to a promising start last year when rookie Dexter McCluster took a punt 94 yards for a momentum-swinging touchdown in the opener. Kansas City couldn’t keep it up all season with McCluster and fellow second-round pick Javier Arenas. “They both got beat up in a number of different ways, which happens,” coach Todd

Haley said. “And it didn’t look so hot as we got through the season.” The Chiefs signed receiver Steve Breaston this offseason, adding even more depth and versatility to their return game. Kansas City ranked 28th in the NFL on kickoff returns last season and 17th on punt returns. McCluster’s score turned out to be its only touchdown from the return

game all season. The Chiefs did improve their average punt return by four yards from the previous year. In the 2010 Week one victory over the Chargers, Arenas had a pair of long punt returns in the first half. Then McCluster came in to field a secondquarter punt and went all the way to the end zone. Breaston returned punts and kicks in his first four seasons with Arizona. Haley


man’s jacket was black and needed dry-cleaning. A few pairs of jeans, a couple of tops and some basketball awards were about the only other items that were salvaged. Asia was most worried about her black, Nike basketball bag, which was smokedamaged and dirty. When they opened it, her basketball, equipment and two new high school jerseys — white and maroon — were spotless. Later that morning, Jones made a selfless offer: She volunteered to take Asia into her own home so she could remain focused on her schoolwork and basketball. Asia’s parents agreed, while the other three children moved in with Alanna’s sister. It wasn’t easy. “The rock bottom was, the kids couldn’t even live with me,” Alanna said. “That was something I was very proud of in a city where there’s highcrime, high this, that. ... I was very proud of the fact that we were a happy, whole family, no matter where we were at.” At first, it wasn’t a smooth transition for Asia. Though she had her own bedroom and bathroom at Jones’ house, the rules were much more strict. Jones told Asia she had to make her bed in the morning and clean her bathroom regularly — chores she wasn’t used to. Not only that, Asia had a curfew and also had to check in with Jones when she was going to different places with her friends. “Once we got it together, we pretty much gelled,” Asia said. “But in the beginning, it was tough.”

back and forth from sleeping in the house to sleeping in their car out front. They also stayed without electricity, gas or water. The two would take buckets from people they knew, fill them with water, then bring them into the house. They also relied on bottled and donated water. For showers, they’d go to Alanna’s sis1 ter’s house 2 ⁄2 miles away. There were times when Alanna’s car wasn’t working or didn’t have gas. Alanna would walk to the laundromat to do laundry, and also would sometimes walk to McDonald’s a mile away to use the bathroom or to charge her phone in an outlet. Through it all, Alanna said she’d call Asia for support. “I would be crying some days, and she’s always my calm person,” Alanna said. “‘Mom, it’s going to be OK. We can get through this, too.’” Slowly, the Boyds are rebuilding their home. The water is back on, and the family is hoping to have all the wiring for the lights and gas to be fully completed in the next few months. Their two youngest children also moved back into the house in June. “That’s the good thing about the citizens here in Detroit. They helped us out, because a lot of it was really unaffordable,” Shawn Sr. said. “We couldn’t have done it by ourselves.” Now, the family is ready to see what Asia can accomplish at KU.


is easy,” Alanna said. “But I am saying you can live through it. It’s not the end.” Just when they were finally starting to rebuild — and after Alanna started a new job with GM’s OnStar in-car communications — the family faced their toughest challenge yet. ❊❊❊

It sounded like the ruffling of papers. Alanna Boyd was sleeping next to her youngest daughter and son when the crackles in her bedroom finally woke her up. Her mind went to the candles, which were being used to light the house in the days after the electricity had been shut off. When she opened her eyes, it was too late: The wall, ceiling and dresser were in flames. Alanna woke up her children, then tried to figure a way out of the second-story room. The door was ablaze with no doorknob, while the burning of the TV in the room produced nasty fumes. With few other options, Alanna grabbed the burning door with her bare hands and tugged on it. It stuck for a while before swinging open. She threw a blanket over her 5-year-old son, Shawn Jr., and carried him out while also leading her 11-year-old daughter, Jada, through the smoke. Barefoot, Alanna made her way through the house and across the street with her two children. Four fire trucks arrived, putting out the flames and also the house’s windows in the process. With Alanna crying across the street, a couple of firefighters approached her. They’d noticed a familiar face in a picture on the mantle — the city’s recently crowned best high school basketball player. “Are you Asia Boyd’s mom?” ❊❊❊

Asia was at a friend’s house on the February night her mom called her to tell her about the house fire. She immediately dialed up Renaissance High coach Diane Jones, who drove across town to pick Asia up. The two entered the house by themselves to see what they could save. Asia’s burgundy letter-


Meanwhile, Asia’s parents continued to stay in their own house, which had smoke damage from the fire but hadn’t been harmed structurally. When they returned to the house after going to the American Red Cross, they’d noticed the front door was open, as contractors had come through to see the damage. After that, Alanna felt like she couldn’t leave her home. “What was left of it, I didn’t want to lose any more,” Alanna said. “So I told my husband, ‘I can do it if you can do it.’ I don’t give up.” The two remained in the house and began to clean up. Water damage had soaked to the basement of the three-story home. Because it was February, that water had frozen on the ceilings, light fixtures and floors by the next day. The fumes in the house were so bad the two would go


It’s been an adjustment for Asia during her first weeks in Lawrence. She said she isn’t used to so many meetings. Coach Bonnie Henrickson has teased her that she won’t be able to take as many naps here as she’s used to. Still, the coach has seen flashes of what Asia — who was at one time looked at by both UConn and Tennessee — can do during practices. “She’s made plays here, and she doesn’t even know what she’s doing,” Henrickson said, “because she’s just a big kid who can be aggressive.” On their official visit to campus with Asia, both parents told Henrickson to keep their daughter in line. Shawn even gave the coach permission to “scream, cuss or fuss” to make sure she was focused. Asia hasn’t let distractions get in her way so far. “I’m just staying grounded and humble, and now I’m here,” Asia said. “Hopefully, I can make something of this.”

believes the Chiefs won’t use one dedicated return man this season because of each player’s other abilities. “If that were his No. 1 job, then I would be all for that if he were a big-time returner, which they all have a chance to be,” Haley said. “As the situation looks right now, I don’t know if that’ll be the case. Those are guys that are contributing in other areas where we need them — all three of them.”

of the guys who stood out to him. “I saw a little move he put on somebody, and I was just, like, ‘Wow,’” Bourbon said. That notion is in line with what many around the program have said all summer as Shepherd already has established a reputation as a guy who’s tough to cover one-on-one.

A nickel back in his first season, Arenas should continue to see plenty of snaps on defense. McCluster said the mantra for the returners was to be prepared. “I’m just going to approach special teams like I do all the time: Be ready when my time is called, catch every ball, make all the right decisions and just try to make plays,” McCluster said.

Royals upended in 10 ————

Boesch’s RBI single lifts Tigers over Kansas City, 4-3 K A N S A S C I T Y , M O . ( AP ) — Brennan Boesch came through too late for Rick Porcello. His hit came just in time for the Detroit Tigers, though. Boesch hit a go-ahead RBI single in the 10th inning to give the Detroit Tigers a 4-3 victory over the Kansas City Royals on Friday night. “I just didn’t want to do too much,” Boesch said. “I just wanted to make sure I was under control and just try to play pepper back up the middle. I wanted to do that.” The Tigers extended their lead in the AL Central to four games over the Cleveland Indians, who lost in extra innings around the same time the Tigers were winning.

KANSAS CITY ROYALS FIRST BASEMAN ERIC HOSMER goes over the railing after a foul ball off the bat of Detroit’s Miguel Cabrera during the 10th inning. The Royals fell, 4-3, Friday in Kansas City, Mo.

“I feel bad for Rick,” Leyland said. “He deserved to get a win. He was fantastic. I’m sorry he didn’t get a win.” Austin Jackson and Boesch

opened the game with backto-back triples in the Tigers’ two-run first inning. Alex Avila tacked on a solo homer in the fifth. Johnny Giavotella made his debut for the Royals and hit an RBI single before scoring the tying run on Alcides Escobar’s single in the seventh. Royals starter Felipe Paulino gave up three runs and six 2 hits in 6 ⁄3 innings, striking out seven and walking two. Rick Porcello had a string of wins in five straight starts snapped. He left with one out in the seventh after giving up Giavotella’s RBI single. Phil Coke came on, gave up an RBI single to Mike Moustakas, and left. David Pauley gave up Escobar’s tying hit to center field. “The team got the win and that’s the biggest thing,” Porcello said. “Obviously, it’s nice for yourself personally to get a win, but we got the win and started the series off to a good start. That’s the bottom line, the most important thing.”

MANHATTAN (AP) — This wasn’t the rebuilding job Bill Snyder inherited the first time he arrived at Kansas State. Not by a long shot. The program back then was on the verge of extinction, its facilities on the level as some high school programs — and its performance on the field not much better. Instead, Snyder came back from a brief retirement three years ago to “calm the waters.” There was plenty of angst surrounding the program after the roller-coaster ride of Ron Prince, and Snyder understood that everything he had built the first time around was on the verge of coming undone. But there were pieces that he could work with and a blueprint some 20 years old that he could follow. Recruit the right players. Build depth. Instill a winning attitude. After a couple of tedious years, Snyder’s second rebuilding job is ready to pay off. The Wildcats are coming off their first bowl appearance since 2006, return 24 players who started at least one game and will suit up highly touted brothers Arthur and Bryce Brown after they sat out last season under NCAA transfer rules. “If there was a little disarray there, if I could, I wanted to bring people back into the same kind of environment they’ve become accustomed to,” the 71-year-old Snyder said Friday during the program’s annual media day, recalling his decision to return to the sidelines after three seasons away. “Maybe we’re beginning to turn the corner a little bit.” Expectations are certainly high again in Manhattan, just like they were during the 1990s, those heady days when the Wildcats were a fixture in the national polls. Kansas State opens its season against Eastern Kentucky on Sept. 3 before hosting Kent State two weeks later. That should give the Wildcats ample opportunity to work out any kinks before a visit to Miami on Sept. 24, their final nonconference game and one that could prove critical to any sustained success. The Wildcats, of course, will play the entire Big 12 gauntlet now that Colorado and Nebraska have left for other conferences. That includes a homecoming game against Oklahoma, one of the overwhelming favorites to win the national championship, and high-prof ile

KANSAS STATE FOOTBALL COACH BILL SNYDER ANSWERS QUESTIONS during Big 12 media days in this photo from July 26 in Dallas. match-ups against Missouri, Texas Tech and Texas A&M. Most of those teams are expected to be ranked when the AP preseason poll is released. “Knowing Coach Snyder, from the top to the bottom, every position across the board, it’s going to be competitive,” said Collin Klein, who is first in line to start at quarterback. “It’s that way on purpose. Everybody gets an opportunity to make plays. When you get that opportunity, you’d better make the most of it.” That’s because there’s somebody else waiting in line. Finally. Snyder believes the Wildcats have more depth across the board than each of the past two seasons, even though they are well under the NCAA scholarship limit. He also said several positions are up for grabs early in fall camp, particularly on defense, where Kansas State struggled mightily a year ago. If competition breeds competition, the Wildcats are on the right track. “With no depth chart, I think it’s really helping the team a lot,” wide receiver Broderick Smith said. “You have everyone out here working hard, because they’re thinking they have a chance.” One of the big reasons that Snyder has been able to rapidly rebuild the program is because he’s surrounded by many of the same coaches that helped establish Kansas State so many years ago.

Co-offensive coordinator Dana Dimel started off as a graduate assistant at Kansas State in 1987 and ‘88, prior to Snyder’s arrival from Iowa, back when the program was in the midst of a 30-game winless streak. His co-coordinator, Del Miller, is in his third stint on the Kansas State staff. Defensive ends coach Joe Bob Clements played for Snyder and got his start in coaching during the 1999 season, while Michael Smith followed a similar career trajectory. Defensive line coach Mo Latimore is starting his 28th year in Manhattan. And on and on it goes, all the way down to graduate assistants Jonathan Beasley and Blake Seiler, both former players who understand the Kansas State culture. “My first year here was ’94, so as a player there was never a year I didn’t go to a bowl game. But the guys who built the foundation, when they weren’t going to bowl games, they have seen some similarities in the rebuilding,” Clements said. “It feels like we’re progressing maybe a little faster than we did back then. “I would like to expect that we’d have a better record than we had last season,” he added. “I would like to expect there’s not a game we can’t walk in and win, and I don’t know if we could say that last couple seasons. So in that respect, maybe expectations have increased. We’ve certainly made progress.”

We should be ready to serve and give, wherever we are designed for open-handed living with our time, talent and treasure (yes, money.) Wherever we are, those who are there should be better off because Christians are there, found ready to serve and give. For example, during the Joplin disaster (and continuing recovery) we encouraged our smaller groups to be involved, whether donating items, money or taking their talents or time down to volunteer. This leads to the bigger question: Is service merely a project? Should we just wait around for the next global or national disaster to spur into action? With that mentality, we unfortunately treat serving others as a project to do once in awhile rather than a lifestyle to live. Although there is nothing inherently

wrong with creating a specific service project or program, they should be looked upon as opportunities that fit into our lifestyle of serving versus something to do once a year — before a holiday, if we have time, if we remember. Responding to disasters should be part of our DNA no doubt, but the local church’s heart of service should be consistently active in the local community. How are we taking steps forward with the poor, the homeless and the abused in Lawrence? If we claim Jesus is life and hope, we need to be active in being that very thing for the Lawrence that we say we love. — Send e-mail to Matt Cox at

God will reveal sovereign control and make things right in this world The Rev. Gary O’Flannagan, pastor, Cornerstone Southern Baptist Church, 802 W. 22nd St.: Some people have said that God causes natural disasters as a form of punishment. As a Christian I am careful about making these kinds of judgments. I certainly believe in a Creator, who might be responsible at times and Who has the ability to cause such O’Flannagan events but I also believe in “natural evil.” Natural evil is a partial explanation for why bad things like natural disasters happen. Natural disasters are a

result of what the Bible calls sin. When sin first took place with Adam and Eve, every aspect of the natural world was affected. The Bible says in Romans 8:22 “We know that the whole creation has been groaning as in the pains of childbirth right up to the present time,” NIV. This is the impact of sin on the world we live in, because of sin creation no longer operates as designed. There is another form of evil, “moral evil.” Moral evil occurs when a person does an action that we know is wrong. Murder, lying and stealing are some examples of moral evil. Sometimes disasters are caused by our choices. An example of this might be the Gulf of Mexico oil rig that spilled hundreds of thou-

sands of barrels of crude oil into the Gulf. It is believed that negligence was a real possibility as a cause; if so, whoever was in charge of the safety practices would have the cause, making this not a natural evil but a moral one. Either way, we live in a world where evil exists. As a Christian, I believe we are all personally responsible for our own choices and actions. And while natural disasters occur, I don’t blame God for them and I believe that God will reveal his sovereign control and make all things right in this world. Psalm 119:91: “Your laws endure to this day, for all things serve you,” NIV. — Send e-mail to Gary O’Flannagan at

Christopher and Catherine Post The bride is a 2006 graduate of Bishop Seabury Academy. She earned bachelor’s degrees in management and systems engineering from the United States Military Academy, West Point, N.Y., in 2010. She is currently an Army lieutenant stationed at Fort Carson, Colo. The groom is a 2004 graduate of Pine Forest High School in Pensacola. He earned bachelor’s degrees in literature and chemical engineering from West Point in May and is currently an Army lieutenant stationed at Fort Carson. The couple reside in Colorado Springs, Colo.



What should faithful people make of this summer's natural disasters: floods, tornadoes, heat deaths, etc.? The Rev. Matt Cox, pastor, EastLake Community Church, 2734 La. (South Junior High): Although I think there can be great discussion over the “Why does God allow these events to happen?” angle, I think as people of faith, we need to be more concerned with the “What now?” than Cox the “Why?” Among the worst circumstances we need to be the very hands and feet of Jesus when it’s certainly a temptation for us just to be the mouthpiece. I believe the church is specif ically called and

together. If we say no, she becomes so hurt that it causes more stress and puts a damper on the time with my husband. Mom is vibrant and healthy, has friends, exercises and does volunteer work. She has sisters who live close by and two dogs that she adores. She has a busy life, so it’s not like I am all she has to fill it. My husband and I work hard and deserve time alone without guilt. How can we get Mom to understand without hurting Counseling, hopefully, will her feelings? — Mama’s Girl Dear Mama’s Girl: Those help him understand what is at stake. Dear Annie: My husband and I have demanding careers. We work at least 60 hours per week and have little free time. The problem is my mother. I adore her, call her twice a week, email every day and see her every weekend. We never say no when she needs something. However, Mom expects us to spend every extra moment with her. I can’t see my friends because she becomes jealous and says, “Maybe next month you’ll have time for me.” Vacations are the biggest problem. We are paying off huge college loans, so we tend to take “staycations.” We ask her not to call unless it is an emergency, yet she calls constantly and wants to get

Hallmark celebrates Lucille Ball’s centennial What will people be watching in the year 2070? Will any programming being produced today hold up after six decades? The question arises because the Hallmark Channel will devote its entire weekend to celebrating Lucille Ball’s 100th birthday by airing 96 consecutive episodes of “I Love Lucy” (5 a.m., Saturday, through 5 a.m., Monday). “Lucy” was the first huge sitcom hit and attracted an astounding 67 percent audience share during the 1952-3 season. It was also the f irst to be shot with three cameras and among the f irst to be taped for later showing, virtually inventing the notion of the rerun. At a time when repeats of “Home Improvement” can seem fairly ancient, these old black-and-white comedies hold up. Much of that has to do with the cast and characters. And it’s fortunate that “Lucy” didn’t trade in topical humor. Many of its episodes were broadcast when Harry Truman was still president. ● Michael Ian Black has lived his entire life inside quotation marks. OK, make that his professional life. A veteran of TV shows “The State” and “Stella,” he’s earned a steady paycheck wrapping the ironic in the obvious. Or is that the other way around? Remember NBC’s cheap summer show “Spy TV”? He was the first host back in 2001. He’s done more installments of VH1’s “I Love the ...” franchise than I’ve ever watched, and he was a part of pop culture financial bubble history as the voice of the sock puppet! Fans can catch up on Black’s snarky take on things with “Michael Ian Black: Very Famous” (10 p.m., Saturday, Comedy Central).

Tonight’s other highlights ● A boy with glasses makes good the 2005 sequel “Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire” (7 p.m., ABC). ● A mom leads her family on a quest to find her missing husband in the 2011 drama “Who is Simon Miller?” (7 p.m., NBC). ● Desert mutants show little mercy in the 2007 sequel “The Hills Have Eyes 2” (8 p.m., Syfy). ● Liza Minnelli, Jack Deem and James McAvoy appear on “The Graham Norton Show” (9 p.m., BBC America). Cult choice Actresses share a boarding house as well as dreams in the 1937 melodrama “Stage Door” (7 p.m., TCM), featuring a who’s who of acting greats, including Katharine Hepburn, Ginger Rogers, Eve Arden, Ann Miller and today’s birthday girl, Lucille Ball.

apron strings are tied a little tight. Your first priority is to your husband and marriage. Don’t feel guilty or apologize for having a social life. When you take a staycation, tell Mom to call her sisters in case of emergency, and then turn off your phones. You are a good daughter. If Mom chooses to be hurt because you are not devoting all of your free time to her, so be it.

JACQUELINE BIGAR’S STARS For Saturday, Aug. 6: This year, you might believe you are being clear, but you will be giving mixed signals. Ask several respected and trusted friends or family members if perhaps your body language doesn't match your message. Some of you might opt to take a class in communication. If you are single, you could meet someone through family or close to your home. If you are attached, the two of you probably will see the communication issue just mentioned rear its ugly head.

Dear Annie: I have been married for 30 years and have three grown children. My husband served in the Navy and was away a lot of the time. Early in our marriage, he was gone for nine months, and during that time, he had an affair with a much younger girl. I found out about it and was heartbroken. But I forgave and forgot. Until recently. It seems that after 25 years, this woman looked him up on the Internet, and they have been corresponding. Annie, I am devastated. All I can think about is what happened long ago and how sick I was then — and now I am again. My husband sees nothing wrong with it, which drives me crazy. He lied and said he stopped contacting her, but I’ve seen texts, phone calls and emails. I don’t know what to do. Should I walk out? He says he loves only me, but how can I believe him when he continues doing this? — Sick in Salem, Ore. Dear Salem: Show your husband the evidence of his lies, and insist that he go with you for marriage counseling. He may not realize how serious a breach this is because it’s in cyberspace, but it is a major betrayal for him to continue a correspondence with a woman he had an affair with — no matter how long ago.
