Voters going to polls today urged to bring photo ID By Scott Rothschild firstname.lastname@example.org
Voters going to the polls today to participate in either the Republican or Democratic primary must bring one item with them to allow them to cast their
ballots: a photo ID. For many Kansans, this will be the first election under a new requirement that voters present a government-issued photo ID, and Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach is urging voters to remember.
But election officials say people who don’t have the required ID or forgot to bring it with them can cast provisional ballots. They would then have seven days to present proper ID to have their vote counted. Officials are predicting
a low turnout at the polls, which will be open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. In the Republican primary, Gov. Sam Brownback, the Kansas Chamber of Commerce, the billionaire Koch brothers, and Kansans for Life have been working to
defeat a group of Republican senators who they say have been obstacles to their agenda. Brownback said he got involved “because of the alliance in the state Senate between Democrats and some Please see VOTERS, page 2A

The thrill of entering a home while residents slept or just plain cowardice are likely motives in a recent string of Lawrence aggravated burglaries, a psychologist said. Lawrence police last week arrested 31-yearold Ronald Kenneth Brooks Jr., and he was charged with entering two northern Lawrence homes while residents were sleeping between 4 a.m. and 6 a.m. July 31. Officers caught him near the two homes. But for weeks, dozens of Lawrence residents had reported similar crimes to police. They said they had awakened in their homes and discovered a burglar inside. Or they’d awakened and discovered that items were missing. Often, police said, the burglar would enter the homes through an unlocked door or an open garage. The crimes were dif-
ferent from a common night auto or garage burglary or breaking into an empBrooks ty residence. Brian Russell, a Lawrence psychologist and attorney, said the suspect or suspects may not so much have been after valuable items but may have wanted to experience entering someone else’s home with people inside. “There are certain people who do crime primarily for the thrill, at least the act itself,” he said. The suspect also might have only needed a small amount of money to support a drug habit and worked to try to steal a small amount at a time. “It’s important to keep in mind: Criminals are almost always cowards,” Russell said. “You can have somebody who went
in there to steal something. Then they get in there and somebody detects their presence, and they immediately turn tail and run because they want to be able to do this again tomorrow.” There was one report of a suspect breaking out the rear glass door of an east Lawrence residence and stealing a TV inside. But typically in the recent burglaries only smaller items that could fit into a backpack or bag were stolen, if anything at all. About $1,900 worth of electronics were stolen in one July burglary, and other times a suspect ran before taking anything, often when residents awoke inside. Russell said one danger is that some criminals start with more petty acts like shoplifting before working their ways to more dangerous crimes. No assaults were reported in the recent string of aggravated burglaries. “It could be that our police did a nice job of
catching somebody who was on the upswing of an escalating thing,” Russell said. “You get away with something enough times, you start to get bold.” Brooks had a 2004 drug conviction and spent time in federal prison for assaulting a mail carrier in Topeka in 2008. Another man, William D. Washington III, 32, of Lawrence, was arrested June 9 after a similar home burglary was reported in west Lawrence, but he has not been charged with any other burglaries. The aggravated burglaries also did not stop after Washington was arrested, so police said there could be more than one suspect involved. None has been reported since Brooks’ arrest. Sgt. Trent McKinley, a Lawrence police spokesman, said detectives were still following leads in the case and trying to determine if either Washington or Brooks could be tied to any of the other burglaries.

missing at the fairgrounds. “It did qualify him for a State Fair entry,” his mother, Joyce Miles, said, “so he won’t be able to do that. We are asking that it be returned anonymously.” Adam’s project wasn’t the only one missing or apparently stolen from the displays in Buildings 1 and 2 at the fairgrounds, said Margaret Kalb, executive secretary of the Douglas County Fair Board. She said fair officials did notify the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office after they noticed a few projects by 4-H members and others apparently were taken. The fair book has a liability section that states exhibitors enter and display items at their own risk, but Kalb said the apparent thefts were still disappointing. “We hope that somebody would be honest enough that they would
consider returning the items,” she said. “The fair board is very concerned. We do our best to find volunteers to watch those buildings. I’m sure sometimes you can’t see everything in any type of business. I’m so sorry for the loss of those types of items, and so is the whole fair board.” Joyce Miles said her son, who will attend South Middle School this year, had planned to give the project as a gift to his father, Mark Leonard. The family is asking anyone who has the wall hanging to return it anonymously to his mother’s employer, Housekeeping Unlimited, 1611 St. Andrew’s Drive, which is west of Bob Billings Parkway and Kasold Drive. “I think he’s just more shocked than anything that it was taken,” she said. “And if they really liked it that much, he probably would have made them one.” —Reporter George Diepenbrock can be reached at 832-7144.

State resubmits KanCare application By Scott Rothschild firstname.lastname@example.org
TOPEKA — Gov. Sam Brownback’s administration announced Monday it had resubmitted to the federal government its proposal to overhaul the Kansas Medicaid program. Under the proposal, more than 350,000 Kansans will receive health care services through managed care plans run by private insurance companies. Lt. Gov. Jeff Colyer said KanCare will provide better health outcomes and save approximately $1 billion in five years. “Compared to old Medicaid, KanCare will offer needy Kansans three vibrant options for integrated care and value-added services,” said Colyer, who is a plastic surgeon. “KanCare will provide expanded coverage for dental care, heart trans-
plants and bariatric services. With KanCare, members will be able to choose the plan that works best for their families. We’re able to make these improvements without cutting provider rates or changing eligibility requirements,” Colyer said. Some health care advocates have been skeptical of the claims made by the Brownback administration. The administration had submitted its proposal to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services in April. But it withdrew the application to consult with two Native American health centers. Last week, state officials held meetings on the KanCare plan in eight cities. Colyer said the administration still hopes to implement KanCare by Jan. 1. — Statehouse reporter Scott Rothschild can be reached at 785-423-0668.

TOPEKA — Moderate Republicans who are trying to retain control of the Kansas Senate are likely to get help from Democrats who’ve temporarily switched parties to vote against conservative challengers in GOP primary races, the state Democratic Party’s leader said Monday. State Chairwoman Joan Wagnon said Kansas Democratic Party officials have seen hundreds of people change their party affiliations to the GOP in counties with contested Senate races on today’s primary ballot. The state GOP allows only registered Republicans to vote in its primaries. Wagnon said Democrats were trying to pin down firm figures on the party switchers, but she believes it’s a significant number. Voter registration numbers from Secretary of State Kris Kobach’s office also suggested such a trend is possible. The number of registered Republicans, unaffiliated and total voters is higher than at the same point in 2010, but the number of registered Democrats has declined. A majority of the state Senate’s 40 districts and the House’s 125 districts had contested primaries, but the hottest races in Kansas were a dozen contests in which a moderate GOP senator faced a more conservative challenger. Conservatives hoped to oust the incumbents and end moderate Senate leaders’ ability to stymie moves to the right in fiscal and social policy. “All kinds of people see that there’s a huge threat with the loss of the Senate, so they’re switching over,” Wagnon said. Kansas has about 1.7 million registered voters and when registration for the primary closed in mid-July, the number was

Republicans that join together to promote a Democrat agenda.” House Minority Leader Paul Davis, D-Lawrence, said when he read that statement from Brownback he thought it was peculiar. “Do the people of Kansas want their representatives to work with each other or not? I believe the answer is a clear yes.” Meanwhile, those Republican incumbents were battling back with the support of teachers, bipartisan union PACs and gaming interests. “The moderates have really fought back in a more aggressive fashion than I think some of us who have been watching Kansas politics had anticipated,” said Burdett Loomis, a political science professor at Kansas University. “The moderates aren’t going down without a fight,” said Washburn University political science professor Bob Beatty. “It’s a true battle. It’s not like the U.S. men playing Nigeria in basketball.” While GOP state legislative races have dominated politics in much of Kansas, Douglas County is part of a Democratic primary for the 2nd Congres-
Republican PACs spend more than half-million dollars in final days TOPEKA (AP) — The political action committee of the Kansas Chamber of Commerce has spent more than $394,000 on legislative races in the final days before today’s party primaries. Campaign finance reports filed through Monday show most of the money went for mailings and radio spots for conservative Republicans running for state Senate. The chamber’s PAC reported spending nearly $307,000 on Sunday alone, but chamber vice president Jeff Glendening said $45,000 of the spending also was listed in an earlier report. The chamber is backing efforts by GOP conservatives to oust a dozen moderate Republican senators in primary races. But the chamber also is helping conservative candidates seeking open seats. According to other campaign finance reports filed through Monday,
political action committees backing moderate Republicans in Kansas Senate races have spent at least $178,000 in the final days before the party primaries. A PAC for Kansas real estate agents reported spending more than $58,000 on mailings and online advertising in the week before today’s primary. Other groups backing moderate Republicans for Senate also report spending more than $30,000 each in recent days. They include the Kansas Traditional Republican Majority PAC, the Kansas Jobs PAC and the Kansas Values PAC. The Kansas Jobs PAC received a $15,000 contribution from the state’s largest public employees union. Kansas allows PACs to spend unlimited amounts on ads promoting candidates if those activities aren’t coordinated with the candidates.
seven-tenths of 1 percent higher than in mid-July 2010. Republican registrations were up 2.3 percent and unaffiliated registrations up 3.7 percent. But Democratic registrations were 5 percent lower in mid-July than in mid-July 2010. And figures from Kobach’s office showed that Democratic registrations dropped after July 1. Moderate GOP senators joined Democrats in resisting Gov. Sam Brownback’s successful push to cut state income taxes this year. The bipartisan coalition in the Senate has prevented Brownback’s fellow conservatives from going as far as they’d like toward lessening the political influence of labor unions, remaking the appellate courts and mov-
ing new public employees into a 401(k)-style pension plan. The state’s largest teachers’ union and other labor groups were working with GOP moderates, and some Democrats said their party’s members were switching their voter registrations to influence Republican races. The powerful Kansas Chamber of Commerce and the anti-tax, small-government group Americans for Prosperity were backing conservatives’ efforts to remake the Senate. Still, Kobach was predicting that only 18 percent of the state’s 1.7 million registered voters — about 310,000 — would cast ballots. Republicans generally believe a low turnout favors conservatives.
sional District. Lawrence and Douglas County have been split for 10 years between the 2nd and 3rd districts, but court-ordered redistricting brought the county entirely into the 2nd. The newly aligned districts were ordered by a panel of three federal judges in June after the Legislature failed to approve a plan. Scott Barnhart, Robert Eye and Tobias Schlingensiepen are vying for the Democratic nomination to face U.S. Rep. Lynn Jenkins, R-Topeka, who is seeking her third two-year term. Barnhart is a farmer from Ottawa; Eye, an attorney from Lawrence; and Schlingensiepen, a pastor from Topeka. Eye and Schlingensiepen have had the most active campaigns. Back on the legislative side, two Republicans are vying for their party’s nod in the 3rd Senate District. James C. “J.C.” Tellefson, a former Leavenworth County commissioner, faces Anthony Brown, a state representative from Eudora. The winner will go against incumbent state Sen. Tom Holland, D-Baldwin City, in the November general election. The newly drawn 3rd Senate District covers parts of Leavenworth and Douglas counties, including Basehor, Tonganoxie, Eudora, Baldwin City and about one-third of Law-
rence’s population. In the GOP primary in Senate District 19, two newcomers face off: Matthew Windheuser of Lawrence and Casey Moore of Topeka. The winner will face state Sen. Anthony Hensley, D-Topeka, in the district that covers western Douglas County, east Topeka and all of Osage County. In Senate District 2, Ronald Ellis of Meriden faces Jeremy Pierce of Lawrence, but Pierce ended his campaign and threw his support behind Ellis, who is expected to challenge state Sen. Marci Francisco, D-Lawrence. Lawrence state Reps. Barbara Ballard and Paul Davis, both Democrats, and Tom Sloan, a Republican, face no primary opponents. Republican primaries are being held in two House districts that include portions of Douglas County. State Rep. Connie O’Brien, of Tonganoxie, faces Sandra Bohne of Leavenworth in the 42nd House District; and Debra “Debbi” Childers of Auburn, Ken Corbet of Topeka, and Dana Webber of Scranton are running in the 54th House District. The winner in that race will face state Rep. Ann Mah, D-Topeka. — Statehouse reporter Scott Rothschild can be reached at 785-423-0668.

More hybrid courses offered at KU
Vinland’s fair this weekend
By Adam Strunk
Anyone looking to take a brief step back in time may want to make their way down to the Vinland Community Fair this weekend. The fair, held in the fairgrounds north of Vinland, Thursday through Saturday, will feature live music, games, animal shows and even a turtle race. “It’s an old-fashioned country fair,” Nora Cleland, fair organizer, said. “People are struck by the fact that it is so laid-back and kind of homespun.” This will be the 105th consecutive Vinland Community Fair. Organizers have kept the fair free of carnivals, as well as most technology, in hopes of preserving a sense of community and a way of life. Most of the food and desserts served at the event will be homemade.
Notable fair events Thursday 6 p.m., talent show 7 p.m., Baldwin High School Band performance 7:30 p.m., Alferd Packer Memorial String Band performance Friday 10 a.m., stock bicycle races 7 p.m., antique tractor pull 7:30 p.m., Rural Harmony Band performance Saturday 11 a.m., pet parade/ turtle race 3:30 p.m., watermelon seed spiting contest 5 p.m., lawn mower driving competition followed by homemade ice cream contest 7:30 p.m., The Witness Band performance

As Kansas University continues to build its online course offerings, many faculty members are moving toward more “hybrid” courses, combining online and inclass work. While entire online degree options are still few and far between at KU, Julie Loats, director of KU’s Center for Online and Distance Learning, said those options are expanding. The College of Liberal Arts KANSAS and Sciences UNIVERSITY is working on new undergraduate degree programs, and the education and business schools are working on possible options, including graduate degrees and certificates. Meanwhile, more classes at KU are headed to the hybrid format, adding online components to complement class time, which is more devoted to discussion and indepth problem-solving. “This type of collaboration with faculty helps build familiarity and comfort with online concepts and options

KU Cancer Center director discusses upcoming challenges By Karrey Britt email@example.com
Dr. Roy Jensen, director of Kansas University Cancer Center, said doctors are able to save the lives of about two-thirds of patients who are diagnosed with cancers, but for one out three, there is no treatment. “We’ve got to have better drugs. We’ve got to have drugs that take new approaches against this disease,” Jensen said Tuesday during a Lawrence Noon Rotary Club meeting at the
Holiday Inn Lawrence. “Our university is one of the leading centers across this nation for drug discovery and development and that has been and will continue to be a critical aspect of what we are as a cancer center.” Jensen said while KU Cancer Center recently earned the coveted National Cancer Institute designation, its work is far from over. In four years, it plans to ap-
ply for NCI’s Comprehensive Care Center designation, which is the highest level given. To achieve such status, Jensen said the center will work closely with its 18 partners in the Midwest Cancer Alliance, including Lawrence Memorial Hospital’s Oncology Center, to grow its research, education and outreach. “It’s really demonstrating to the NCI that we’ve taken the cancer center and really want to get the benefits out

from the 15-minute interview: Q: What does NCI designation mean? A: NCI-designated cancer centers are really the crucible from which all therapeutic advances of the last 40 years have sprung from, and it involves the application of basic science research to understanding cancer and then translating that information into new therapeutic advances.
Q: What is the Midwest Cancer Alliance that Lawrence Memorial Hospital recently became a part of? A: It has really brought together cancer professionals from all across the state into what we refer to as a community of care in that it helps them understand all of the institutions throughout this entire area and what the different options are for patients as they start on their individual cancer journeys. helps us really provide child sex crime case It the infrastructure to enEudora police early Satur- sure that every patient, day arrested a 36-year-old no matter where they are man on child sex crime or where they are treated, charges after officers inter- gets the best possible care viewed the man late Friday. and has access to cuttingPolice began investigatedge clinical trials. ing the case after receiving a report of an alleged Q: What have been the incident involving a 15-year- keys to getting NCI desold child. ignation? “We conducted a prelimiA: We grew our cannary interview of everybody cer research funding over involved, and an arrest was the last few years and made,” said Sgt.

program, and a Phase 1 program is primarily intended for patients that have exhausted all therapeutic approaches and they are looking for new drugs that may have an effect on their particular cancer. I think leveraging all of the expertise that we have around drug discovery and development makes it logical to focus in that area. We have a lot of other clinical strengths particularly breast cancer, bone marrow transplantation, prostate cancer, head and neck cancer that are extremely strong and I think we will be able to attract patients from all over.
are set for one of the most exciting times in the history of medicine as far as I’m concerned. That’s the good side. The bad side is the discretionary funding of the federal budget is under greater pressure right now. So, there may not be funding to explore the knowledge and advance medicine.
Q: What are your thoughts on the Affordable Care Act? A: It actually has a big effect on cancer patients. If you look at people who are diagnosed with cancer, particularly those who have health insurance at that time or don’t have health insurance at that time, those that don’t have health insurance have a 50 percent lower five-year survival rate. That’s a stunning difference. It points out the fact that you can not get comprehensive, coordinated cancer care in your local ER. So, I think being able to insure somewhere in the neighborhood of 30 million additional Americans absolutely will save lives particularly for the cancer patients.
Q: It seems like everybody knows someone with cancer. Why is it so prevalent? A: There’s a lot of things that come into play. Demographically, our country is getting older, and older individuals are much more likely to get cancer. As we move toward 2030, it’s likely that we will see a doubling of cancer patients in this country. We have got to get the infrastructure in place to deal with this and we can’t just accept that fate. We’ve got to work toward making that better and turning the needle so that we decrease the number of cancer cases and we give hope to folks who wind up getting cancer.

• A woman reported to Lawrence police just before noon Saturday that she came home to her residence in the 1800 block of Louisiana Street and observed the door was open. She heard rustling downstairs and called police who searched the residence, said Sgt. Trent McKinley, a police spokesman. Officers did not find anyone inside, but they believe the woman interrupted the burglary in progress. Officers canvassed the area but did not find a suspect. • A Lawrence police officer at 2 a.m. Sunday pursued two juvenile suspects in the 1500 block of Wakarusa Drive who allegedly fired paintballs at Brandon Woods at Alvamar. Sgt. Trent McKinley, a police spokesman, said the two suspects, who were described as wearing masks, fled on foot. The original reporting party also believed the two suspects had exited a business on Wakarusa Drive through a back door, but officers found no evidence of entry into the business, McKinley said. • A 23-year-old Chicago resident reported the theft of a moped, a grill and propane tanks from the 900 block of Ohio Street, according to a

police report. The theft was alleged to have occurred between Wednesday and Saturday, and the total value of the items taken was $2,240. • A 38-year-old Lawrence man reported the theft of a 2009 Chrysler Town and Country valued at $15,000 from the 1300 block of Prospect Avenue. The theft was alleged to have occurred on Sunday.
INJURY ACCIDENT • Douglas County Sheriff’s officials identified a 22-yearold Lawrence man as the driver injured Saturday evening in a one-vehicle crash near Clinton Lake. Sgt. Steve Lewis, a sheriff’s spokesman, said Cody Bruce was headed south on North 1150 Road at 6:20 p.m. when he lost control on a curve and eventually rolled into a ditch in the 2007 Chevrolet pickup truck he was driving. Bruce was flown to Kansas University Hospital in Kansas City, Kan., via LifeStar helicopter ambulance. Tests are being performed to determine whether alcohol was a contributing factor. The Journal-World does not print accounts of all police reports filed. The newspaper generally reports: • Burglaries, only with a loss of $1,000 or more, unless there are unusual circumstances. To protect victims, we generally don’t identify them by name. • The names and circumstances of people arrested, only after they are charged. • Assaults and batteries, only if major injuries are reported. • Holdups and robberies.

Students want credentials. Just offering a random sampling of courses doesn’t meet the needs of today’s students. Degree programs are essential.
You have to provide the same services for online students as you do for on-campus students. That means library access, access to tutoring services and financial aid support, among others, Hammond said.
Training faculty is key. A good classroom teacher might not be a good online course teacher. The university monitors how frequently online teachers reply to students and other metrics, too. Proper assessment continues to be a challenge, Hammond said. Many faculty members conduct oral exams using Skype to ensure the student is actually the one doing the work. The future is bright for online education, as people continue to change careers several times in their lives, Hammond said. “We’re going to need to service them three or four times in their lifetime if we’re going to be in a competitive state,” he said.

Notable Kansas Agricultural Statistics Service says the state’s corn and soybean crops are in the worst condition since the agency began keeping records in 1985. In its weekly update, the agency said Monday that 69 percent of the corn crop was in poor to very poor condition. About 22 percent was in fair condition, with just 8 percent rated good and only 1 percent rated excellent. About 7 percent of the state’s corn acreage had been harvested for grain by Sunday. The hot, dry weather is also hurting soybeans, with 67 percent in poor to very poor condition.

Are you happy? Ben Bernanke wants to know By Christopher S. Rugaber Associated Press
WASHINGTON — Ben Bernanke wants to know if you are happy. The Federal Reserve chairman said Monday that gauging happiness can be as important for meas u r i n g economic progress as determining whether inflation Bernanke is low or unemployment high. Economics isn’t just about money and material benefits, Bernanke said. It is also about understanding and promoting “the enhancement of well-being.” Bernanke and Fed policymakers rely on reports on hiring, consumer spending and other economic data when making highstakes decisions about the $15 trillion U.S. economy. The Fed’s dual mandate is to maintain low inflation and full employment. “We should seek better and more-direct measurements of economic wellbeing,” Bernanke said Monday in a video-taped speech shown to a conference of economists and statisticians in Cambridge, Mass. After all, promoting well-being is “the ultimate objective of our policy decisions.” Bernanke acknowledged
that many people aren’t too happy right now. Unemployment rose in July to 8.3 percent, and economic growth has slowed sharply from the start of the year. He called the recovery “frustratingly slow” when he testified to Congress on July 17. Aggregate statistics can mask important information about how individual Americans are faring, Bernanke says. His speech Monday was the latest foray into a relatively new specialty in economics known as “happiness studies.” Bernanke attracted widespread notice when he spoke about the economics of happiness in a May 2010 commencement address at the University of South Carolina. In that speech, he said research has found that once basic material needs are met, more wealth doesn’t necessarily make people happier. “Or, as your parents always said, money doesn’t buy happiness,” Bernanke said then. “Well, an economist might reply, at least not by itself.” In his remarks Monday, Bernanke turned to the more practical — and difficult — task of measuring a subjective emotion. So far, most efforts have involved surveys in which people are asked about whether they are happy and what contributes to their happiness.

MEMBERS OF THE SIKH TEMPLE OF WISCONSIN LISTEN to FBI Special Agent in Charge, Teresa Carlson, during a news conference in a municipal building in Oak Creek, Wis., on Monday. A gunman killed six people at their temple on Sunday before being shot and killed by police.
Sikh temple shooter was Army veteran, had white supremacist ties By John Diedrich, Don Walker, Mike Johnson and Erin Richards Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
OAK CREEK, WIS. — The shooter who opened fire before worship services Sunday at the Sikh Temple of Wisconsin in Oak Creek and killed six people before he was killed by police is Wade Michael Page, a 40-year-old Army veteran, U.S. Attorney James A. Santelle said Monday. He said officials believe he purchased the 9mm handgun legally in Wisconsin. Page, 40, served in the miliPage tary approximately between 1992 and 1998, Santelle said. Other sources familiar with the investigation said Page was assigned to psychological operations, or PsyOps. He apparently was last stationed at Fort Bragg, N.C. As members of the Sikh community in Milwaukee and worldwide mourned the dead, details of Page’s background — his time in Colorado and North Carolina before his recent arrival at a duplex in Cudahy, Wis. — began to emerge, including ties to white supremacist groups. A statement Monday afternoon from Page’s family, texted to a Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reporter, said the family was “devastated by the horrific events” and asked for privacy. At a 10 a.m. news briefing in Oak Creek, officials identified the Oak Creek police officer who was shot when he responded to the temple as Lt. Brian Murphy, 51, an experienced member of the department’s tactical unit. Murphy was a finalist for the Oak Creek police chief post in 2010 and has 21 years with the department Satwant Singh Kaleka, 65, the temple president, was killed Sunday after attempting to tackle the gunman. Oak Creek police identified the other victims Monday as Sita Singh, 41; Ranjit Singh, 49; Prakash
U.S. Attorney James A. Santelle said officials believe the shooter, identified as Wade Michael Page, purchased the 9mm handgun legally in Wisconsin. Singh, 39; Paramjit Kaur, 41; and Suveg Singh, 84. Oak Creek Police Chief John Edwards said during the news conference that Murphy was the first officer on the scene and came upon a victim in the temple parking lot. As Murphy was going to assist the victim, who is among the dead, he was ambushed by the gunman. Murphy was shot eight to nine times at “very close range” with a handgun, one of the shots striking his neck area, Edwards said. Other officers arriving on the scene heard shots but did not know Murphy had been wounded, Edwards said. They saw the gunman, ordered him to drop his weapon and put his hands up, but he did not, Edwards said. The gunman fired at officers, and the bullets struck squad cars. At that point, an officer with a rifle shot and killed the suspect, Edwards said. Jim Palmer, executive director of the Wisconsin Professional Police Association, confirmed Monday that the officer who killed the shooter is Sam Lenda, a 32-year veteran police officer. Murphy is in critical condition but is expected to survive, Edwards said. In addition to Murphy, three others who were at the temple were injured. Two are at Froedtert in critical condition. The third was treated and released, Edwards said. In remarks before Edwards spoke, Mayor Steve Scaffidi said there is “no doubt in my mind the heroic actions of our police officers prevented a greater tragedy.” The Southern Poverty Law Center, a group that has studied hate crimes for decades, reported Monday that Page was a frustrated neo-Nazi who had been the leader of a racist white-power band known as End Apathy.
WASHINGTON — Republican governors who’ve balked at creating new private insurance markets under President Barack Obama’s health care overhaul may end up getting stuck with the very thing they’re trying to avoid. Unless Mitt Romney wins in November, states that haven’t set up the required markets could find Washington calling the shots on some insurance issues the states traditionally manage, from handling consumer complaints to regulating plans that will serve many citizens. It could turn into a political debacle for those who dug in to fight what they decry as “Obamacare.” “You’re kind of rolling the dice if you think ( O b a m a ’ s Praeger health care law) will go away,” said Kansas Insurance Commissioner Sandy Praeger, a Republican. If Romney can’t make good on his vow to repeal the overhaul, “you are just giving up a lot of authority.” The law envisioned that states would run the new markets, called exchanges, with federal control as a fallback only. But the fallback now looks as if it will become the standard option in about half the states — at least initially. It would happen through something called the federal exchange, humming along largely under the radar on a tight development schedule overseen by the Health and Human Services Department in Washington.
Exchanges are new online markets in which individual consumers and small businesses will shop for health insurance among competing private plans. The Supreme Court’s health care decision left both state exchanges and the federal option in place. The exchanges are supposed to demystify the process of buying health insurance, allowing consumers to make apples-toapples comparisons. Consumers will also be able to find out if they’re eligible for new federal subsidies to help pay premiums, or if they qualify for expanded Medicaid. It’s all supposed to work in real time, or close to it, like online travel services. Open enrollment would start a little over a year from now, on Oct. 1, 2013, with coverage kicking in the following Jan. 1. Eventually more than 25 million people are expected to get coverage through exchanges, including many who were previously uninsured. As exchanges get more customers, competition among insurance plans could help keep costs in check. But only 14 states and Washington, D.C., have adopted plans for their own exchanges: California, Colorado, Connecticut, Hawaii, Maryland, Massachusetts, Nevada, New York, Oregon, Rhode Island, Utah, Vermont, Washington and West Virginia. Some could still backtrack. Kentucky and Minnesota are pushing forward with their own exchanges, and others may be able to partner with the federal government. States face a Jan. 1, 2013 deadline for Washington to sign off on their plans.

Joplin mosque razed in 2nd blaze this summer JOPLIN, MO. — Investigators say it will take a few days to determine if the fire that destroyed a southwest Missouri mosque was arson. Michael Kaste, special agent in charge of the FBI’s Kansas City office, said Monday that the agency is taking the investigation into the fire at the Islamic Society of Joplin very seriously. He says the FBI and the Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco and Fire-
arms together have about 30 investigators working to determine the cause. No injuries were reported. Jasper County officials say patrols at the mosque had been stepped up since a July 4 fire at the mosque was determined to be arson. The FBI has released a video of a man appearing to set the July 4 fire and is offering a $15,000 reward in that case.

Important vote Primary elections traditionally draw a low turnout, but this year should be an exception to that rule in Kansas.
on’t let the new voter identification law or any other excuse keep you away from the polls today. Secretary of State Kris Kobach has predicted a dismal 18 percent statewide turnout for today’s primary election. That’s well below the turnout in two previous presidential election years: 30 percent in 2004 and 22.45 in 2008. The low turnout isn’t related to the new requirement that voters show a photo ID at the polls today, according to Kobach, who vigorously supported that legislation to address voter fraud in Kansas. Rather, he said, it’s because there aren’t enough interesting, competitive races on the ballot. On the contrary, the decisions made by voters in today’s primary election could determine the course of state government for a generation. Although Kobach said Kansas House and Senate races don’t usually drive voters to the polls, this year should be an exception to that rule. In many areas, Republican voters will face clear choices between moderate and conservative candidates who have pledged to take the state in significantly different directions. Of particular focus are seats in the Kansas Senate, which are being hotly contested across the state because a shift of three to four seats could end the majority coalition of moderate Republicans and Democrats and turn that majority over to conservative Republican legislators who will align themselves with like-minded officials in the Kansas House and the governor’s office. All three Kansas Senate seats that reach into Lawrence have contested Republican primaries. In all three districts, the winners will face incumbent Democratic senators in the general election. Democrats also have an interesting primary contest for the 2nd Congressional District, which, after redistricting, includes all of Douglas County. It’s true that most voters in Lawrence will only have one contested race on their election ballots, but that doesn’t mean those races aren’t important. Today’s election is a great opportunity to see how the new voter ID requirement at the polls is working and clear up any questions about ID or in what legislative district you live after redistricting. As County Clerk Jamie Shew pointed out, even people who are uncertain about the kind of ID they need or where they should vote should head to the polls anyway. At worst, he said, voters will be required to cast provisional ballots and present additional information later. Like all elections, today’s primary is an important vote, and, like always, our right to vote is both a blessing and a civic duty. Perhaps the best reason to go to the polls today? Because we can.

Saudis appear to be preparing for war WASHINGTON — By appointing Prince Bandar bin Sultan as its new intelligence chief, Saudi Arabia has installed what looks like a war Cabinet at a time of rising tensions with Iran and growing internal dissent from its Shiite minority. The Saudis have also heightened their alert level in other ways to prepare for possible regional conflict. Some Saudi military and security personnel were mobilized last month — called back from summer leave or told to cancel planned vacations. One explanation of the mobilization making the rounds in Riyadh is that the Saudis expected that Turkey might retaliate against Syria for the shoot-down of one of its fighters in late June. The installation of a new intelligence chief came as Saudi Arabia was stepping up its support for insurgents in Syria seeking to topple the regime of President Bashar al-Assad. In this covert effort, the Saudis are working with the U.S., France, Turkey, Jordan and other nations that want Assad out. Bandar will succeed Prince Muqrin bin Abdul Aziz, who was barely visible in the West during his years as Saudi intelligence chief. This led to widespread comment that Muqrin had been fired, but he is said to retain the confidence of King Abdullah, who will use him as a special emissary to Pakistan and other Muslim nations where
The Saudis have also heightened their alert level in other ways to prepare for possible regional conflict. Muqrin’s traditional Saudi demeanor will be useful. Bandar, the flamboyant former ambassador to Washington, had appeared to be sidelined in the past several years because of poor health and personal issues. His appointment now as intelligence chief probably signals the desire of both King Abdullah and the new Crown Prince Salman to have an experienced covert operator to handle sensitive foreign contacts at a time of sharply rising tensions. Bandar would be a useful intermediary, for example, if Saudi Arabia sought nuclear weapons or ballistic missile technology from China to defend against such threats from Iran. Bandar was the go-between in a secret 1987 missile deal with China, known as “East Wind.” Bandar has also been active in
secret missions with Syria and Lebanon for decades, and The Wall Street Journal reported that he helped arrange a recent visit to Saudi Arabia by Gen. Manaf Tlass, the highest-ranking Syrian defector. Bandar is especially wellplaced to manage intelligence liaison with the United States, given his several decades here as ambassador. Bandar maintained close relations with the CIA during Ronald Reagan’s presidency, and was said to have helped organize secret funding for joint Saudi-American covert actions in the Middle East. During the run-up to the 1991 Gulf War, Bandar was so close to President George H.W. Bush that he became known as “Bandar Bush,” a moniker that continued under President George W. Bush. Bandar continued to play a behind-the scenes role even after he left Washington in 2005. He was said, for example, to support Vice President Dick Cheney’s confrontational policy against Iran, to the consternation of Prince Turki alFaisal, his successor as ambassador, who was working with less hawkish members of the Bush administration. Interestingly, Bandar has been a special target for Iranian media attacks in recent days. Iran’s Press TV on Aug. 2 described him as “the linchpin in the ‘dastardly subterfuges’ of the CIA and Mossad against Syria.” Press TV also carried an uncorroborated report early last week (July
31) claiming that Bandar had been assassinated; Saudi and U.S. officials didn’t comment and there is no independent evidence to support the claim. At home, the Saudis have been struggling to contain Shiite protests in Al-Qatif, in the kingdom’s oil-rich eastern province. Those protests, which the Saudis believe are Iran-inspired, led to two deaths in early July, according to a July 9 BBC report. The demonstrations continued last week and there were reports of more casualties. The Saudis haven’t been able to stop the insurgency in Al-Qatif; indeed, it appears to be worsening. The protesters may hope to provoke the Saudis into a bloody crackdown, which would leave scores dead and encourage much wider demonstrations and international outcry. So far, the Saudis have avoided such an escalation through relatively restrained tactics. Saudi reformers argue that the best way to quell Shiite protests is to give them the full economic and political rights of citizenship. Iran’s Press TV on July 27 featured an interview with an analyst headlined: “Collapse of al-Saud regime becomes more realistic than before.” The information may have been Tehran’s propaganda, but it helps explain why the Saudi monarchy is going to battle stations. — David Ignatius is a columnist for Washington Post Writers Group.
Poehler story To the editor: The Journal-World provided good coverage of the progress on the renovation of the Theodore Poehler Wholesale Grocery Building in recent months with articles and photographs. The crowning event for the building was a ribboncutting ceremony on July 27. Many local business and government officials attended the event as well as two great-grandsons and two great-great-grandsons of Theodore Poehler. I am one of those greatgrandsons and was honored by Tony Krsnich, the developer of the building, to assist in the ribbon-cutting ceremony. After that momentous day in the history of the building, I have seen nothing more about it in your newspaper. Perhaps a final article about it would be newsworthy, as well as a brief history of Theodore Poehler’s life. He participated in civic affairs and was the mayor of Lawrence in 1885 and also held a county office at one time. The business had branches in Topeka, Emporia, and McPherson and had approximately 400 employees. William B. Pendleton, Lawrence
OLD HOME TOWN
A 61-year-old man had experienced a close encounter with a flying dart while driving along YEARS the 1000 block of East AGO 23rd Street. Police beIN 1987 lieved the 4 1/2-inch metal dart that struck Richard C. Schaumburg Sr. in the nose, was shot from a blow gun. Schaumburg and a passenger had been driving west on a recent afternoon when the dart passed through the open car window. Schaumburg had been able to stop the car and remove the dart, but he did not see where it came from
Plastic bag ban?
Four men were reported to have held up the American State Bank in downtown OsawatoYEARS mie today, escaping with AGO the cash from two tellers’ IN 1972 stations. Roadblocks had been set up in an attempt to catch the robbers.
To the editor: Plastic bags litter the landscape and end up in landfills where they take up to 1,000 years to degrade. They are also a threat to birds who ingest them and die by the thousands. Of course, it takes millions of barrels of oil annually to produce them. Due to these environmental problems, cities such as Austin, Texas, and Bellingham, Wash., are requiring retailers to stop furnishing plastic bags to consumers. Will Lawrence be the first city in Kansas to protect the environment by implementing a plastic bag ban? Clark H. Coan, Lawrence
From the Lawrence Daily Journal-World for Aug. 7, 1912: “Mrs. Laura Shrout, YEARS who lives on the upAGO land reached by Rural IN 1912 Route 3, sent to the Journal-World yesterday five tomatoes picked from a single vine which weighed over six pounds. The tomatoes were round and smooth and first class in quality. They were of the Ponderosa variety.” “The Lawrence tailors will have their annual picnic Wednesday of this week. The local makers of men’s wearing apparel haven’t completed their plans yet but it is a sure thing that they will have a big day of it. A large number of tailors will come up from Kansas City to join the locals on their picnic.”

KANSAS MEN’S BASKETBALL FANS HUDDLE during a guided tour of Zurich on Monday afternoon.
Travel woes make Jayhawks miss Swiss festivities By Jesse Newell firstname.lastname@example.org
ZURICH — About 100 Kansas University men’s basketball fans gathered at the second floor ballroom of the Marriott Zurich on Monday night, enjoying a four-course meal while overlooking a Switzerland sunset through ceiling-high panoramic windows. Only one thing was missing: the guests of honor everyone came to see.
The KU players and coaches were absent for the first full day of festivities in Europe after weather-related flight problems kept the team in Washington, D.C., overnight Sunday. “Everybody I think is excited to meet the new players on the team.

Ex-Husker Williams hopes to make most of final season By Matt Tait email@example.com

DEFENSIVE END JOSH WILLIAMS, A FIFTH-YEAR SENIOR who played three years at Nebraska, takes a break during practice Monday at the KU practice fields.
When Josh Williams reached the end of his rope with the Nebraska football program, he had no idea what was next. “Disturbing” is the word Kansas University’s fifthyear senior transfer used to describe the feeling of uncertainty that came after his dismissal from the Cornhuskers last January. But while trying times tested his mental toughness, Williams said he never worried about getting another chance. The opportunity that followed was better than anything he imagined. “I figured I would go somewhere and play,” he said. “But
I didn’t know that it would be under coach (Charlie) Weis and coach (Dave) Campo here at Kansas.” Once KU became involved, things moved quickly. Weis was brutally honest with Williams when the two first talked. The first-year KU coach explained to Williams there were guidelines and insisted there would be rules but added that, if Williams toed the line, the reward could be great, and he could once again be on the path to realizing his goal of playing in the NFL. “That’s a big positive,” Williams said. “But more than their connections and experience, I think the knowledge they can teach me was big, as well.”
When the time to say yes to Kansas presented itself, Williams said he went for it immediately and did not consider the make-up of KU’s roster or the situation he was leaping into. “That wasn’t really much of a thought of mine,” Williams said. “Wherever I was gonna go, I knew I was gonna give it my all and do my best. When I talked to them, the coaches said I had an opportunity to come in and help this team, so I jumped on that ship.” Since then, it has been smooth sailing for the 6-foot4, 255-pound defensive end originally from Shreveport, La., who starred at Ryan High in Denton, Texas.

U.S. women win soccer thriller in OT LONDON (AP) —Alex Morgan’s looping header gave the U.S. women’s soccer team a dramatic 4-3 overtime victory against Canada on Monday night. And this physical classic was only the semifinal. Morgan put the U.S. in front for the first time in the third minute of injury time at Old Trafford. Megan Rapinoe scored in the 54th and 70th minutes, and Abby Wambach in the 80th on a penalty for the U.S. Morgan’s 6-yard header, on a long cross from Heather O’Reilly, went high into the net over goalkeeper Erin McLeod for the winning score. The Americans overcame a hat trick from Christine
Sinclair, who scored in the 22nd, 67th and 73rd minutes for Canada. Next comes the game the U.S. players have been eyeing for more than a year, a rematch with Japan on Thursday at Wembley Stadium with gold on the line. The top-ranked Americans lost to Japan on penalty kicks in the World Cup final last summer. “This is redemption for us,” midfielder Carli Lloyd said. “We know how hard it was for us after that game. It hurt us for a really long time.” Japan advanced with a 2-1 victory over France, getting goals from Yuki Ogimi and Mizuho Sakaguchi.

Chiefs working on new offense ST. JOSEPH, MO. (AP) — Slapping labels on Kansas City’s new offense seems to raise the ire of the head coach. “Everybody always wants to put an identity on an offense,” Romeo Crennel said. “What kind of offense is it? Well, hopefully it will be a winning offense.” Brian Daboll, young but quite well traveled, checked in last winter as the fifth offensive coordinator in four years for the team that finished nextto-last in the league in scoring last season. Only St. Louis produced fewer points than the injury-filled Chiefs (No. 18 in the AP Pro32), who lost tight end Tony Moeaki and most importantly, Pro Bowl running back Jamaal Charles before the season had barely started. In addition, quarterback Matt Cassel injured his hand and was sidelined most of the second half. But all the injured players are back now. Cassel has looked good in early camp. Coaches are understandably taking a cautious approach to Charles, who underwent ACL surgery on his left knee. If he retains the potent

First woman set to ref NFL game By Sam Farmer Los Angeles Times
Although thereâ€™s no resolution in sight to the NFLâ€™s lockout of officials, a historic moment for the league is just around the corner. Shannon Eastin is on the verge of becoming the first woman to work as an on-field official in a game, as she has been assigned as a line judge for Green Bayâ€™s exhibition game Thursday at San Diego. Eastin has been a referee for high school games in Arizona as well as in the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference, which includes Bethune-Cookman, Coppin State and Howard University.
Eastin could not be reached for comment, and the league declined Monday to talk about the replacements or any negotiations with locked-out officials. Officials were locked out beginning in June because of a dispute over pay and benefits, and with training camps under way, there are no future negotiations scheduled. NFL officials who moonlight as supervisors for major college conferences â€” such as longtime referee Tony Corrente, who oversees the Pac-12 â€” have discouraged those college officials from working as pro replacements. Therefore, the league has had to tap into the high school, junior college and small-college
ranks to assemble the requisite 17 crews. â€œThatâ€™s why weâ€™ve been training them for the last two months and why theyâ€™re on the field now, is to make sure theyâ€™re prepared, they understand the rules,â€? NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said last week of the replacements. Goodell told reporters he hopes there will be more discussions with the regular officials in the near future, â€œbut as you can see, weâ€™re preparing for the season and we will have officials on the field. We hope that the officials from last season will be on the field again this year but to date, we havenâ€™t been able to get an agreement that makes sense for both parties.â€?
In recent years, the NFL has kept tabs on the most promising female officials, ones with the potential to work at the highest level. According to locked-out referee Ed Hochuli, Eastin was not in that pool of top candidates. â€œThere certainly is no reason that women canâ€™t work as officials in the NFL,â€? said Hochuli, a NFL referee for two decades. â€œBut the league scouts and trains officials for years before they ever bring them in as a rookie in the NFL. â€œWhile itâ€™s great to see the NFL take that step, itâ€™s unfortunate that itâ€™s not one of the qualified prospects that they had previously been considering before the lockout.â€?

MANCHESTER, ENGLAND â€” Amid the chaos at the bottom of a mound of joy that formed after Alex Morganâ€™s goal in the 123rd minute gave the U.S. womenâ€™s soccer team an epic 4-3 Olympic semifinal victory Monday night over Canada at Old Trafford, Abby Wambach found clarity. â€œI told her in the dog pile after the match, â€˜I love you, (and) I think Iâ€™m in love with you in this moment because you just sent us to the gold-medal match,â€™â€? Wambach said. Morgan made America fall just as hard for her by converting a perfect cross from Heather Oâ€™Reilly with a midair header just under the crossbar for the game-winner. Watch Morganâ€™s trademark pink headbands fly off the shelves now. Move over, Hope Solo and Wambach. Team USAâ€™s new â€œItâ€? girl just arrived. The shot that led every highlight show back home gave Team USAâ€™s youngest starter a goal for the ages and sent the Americans into Thursdayâ€™s final against Japan. Morgan, the emerging fresh face of U.S. womenâ€™s soccer at 23, managed a relieved smile while walking out of the locker room post-game. Asked to explain the final sequence, Morgan looked as dumbfounded as everyone who watched her shot. â€œI donâ€™t remember what happened before Heather got the ball, but I knew sheâ€™d get that ball into the box and I just tried to get my head on it,â€? Morgan said. â€œThen I remember wanting to laugh and cry at the same time and just being so proud of the team coming back so many times.â€? In the Yankee Stadium of soccer, Morgan enhanced her growing reputation as one of the worldâ€™s elite goal-scorers. â€œSome players have a gift (for) scoring goals when itâ€™s most needed,â€? U.S. coach Pia Sundhage said. Morgan scored in the clutch to help Team USA avoid a nightmare. Canada had no business taking the gold-medal favorites into overtime; it now has played the U.S. 27 times since 2001 without winning. The U.S. leads the series 443-5. Olympic historians would have called a Canadian win the Miracle on Grass. Indeed, this was Team USA surviving sloppy defense and benefiting from a generous judgment call. This was an escape. But it was also a young player seizing the day, her day. â€œPia came up to me before the game and said, â€˜Promise yourself one thing: Enjoy the momentâ€™ ... and thatâ€™s what I did today,â€? Morgan said. â€œI canâ€™t remember ever feeling this way after a goal.â€? She can thank a goal nobody will soon forget.

RUSSIAâ€™S SASHA KAUN (8) LOOKS TO SCORE as Australiaâ€™s Joe Ingles leaps to defend Monday at the 2012 Summer Olympics in London. Kaun led Russia with 18 points and six rebounds, but Australia won, 82-80, on a last-second three-pointer.
NFL denies report of settlement with Saintsâ€™ Vilma NEW YORK â€” The NFL calls a report it has offered a settlement and reduced suspension to Saints linebacker Jonathan Vilma â€œcompletely inaccurate.â€? Vilma has been suspended for the 2012 season for his role in the Saints bounty program, which he adamantly has claimed did not exist. Citing anonymous sources, ESPN.com reported the league offered Vilma an eight-game suspension if he would drop his defamation lawsuit against NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell. â€œNo such settlement offer has been made,â€? NFL spokesman Greg Aiello said Monday. â€œWe will continue to respect the court proceedings on this matter and have no further comment at this time.â€? A judge has ordered the league and Vilmaâ€™s representatives to hold confidential settlement talks. A person familiar with those talks told the Associated Press he had â€œnot heard anything that concrete from anyone at the NFLâ€? regarding cutting Vilmaâ€™s suspension to eight games. The person, who spoke anonymously because the talks are private, added that he was aware of no offers from the league at all. It is uncertain if Vilma would consider such a reduction in the suspension as he fights to have it overturned completely. Vilma is one of four players suspended in the bounty scandal. Teammate Will Smith, a defensive end, got four games, while DE Anthony Hargrove, now with Green Bay, was docked eight games. Linebacker Scott Fujita, now with Cleveland, was suspended for three games. Saints coach Sean Payton, like Vilma, was suspended for the entire season.
Owens then had surgery on his left knee and didnâ€™t receive any offers to play last season. He had 35 catches for 420 yards and 10 TDs in eight games with the Allen Wranglers of the Indoor Football League. Owens was released and lost an ownership stake in the team in May. Owens, a third-round draft choice by San Francisco in 1996, has 1,078 receptions for 15,934 yards and 153 touchdowns â€” the second most in NFL history.
Calhoun: Hip wonâ€™t affect plans HARTFORD, CONN. â€” Connecticut coach Jim Calhounâ€™s hip fracture could be a factor at the start of his 41st season on the bench, but likely wouldnâ€™t prevent him from a return to coaching, a prominent orthopedic surgeon said Monday. Calhoun was recovering Monday at the UConn Health Center after undergoing surgery Saturday for a left hip fracture sustained in a fall during a bicycle ride near his beach home in Madison. â€œNothing has changed really,â€? Calhoun told ajerseyguy.com on Monday when asked if the injury had changed his long-term plans. â€œIâ€™m just going to go about my business.â€? The 70-year-old Hall-of-Fame coach went down Saturday afternoon after his bike hit a patch of sand.

KU HOOPS NOTEBOOK
Withey finds goaltending rule ‘weird’ By Jesse Newell email@example.com
ZURICH — Kansas University senior center Jeff Withey wasn’t a fan of the international basketball rules regarding goaltending when he played in Europe last summer during an exhibition tour with Athletes in Action. “For a big, I think that’s a little weird. If it’s hanging on the rim, you can knock it off or dunk it,” Withey said. “(I’m) just trying to make that a conscious effort to remember, if it is hanging on the rim, to go up and get it.” Try as he might,

be very amazed and pleased. I know I would be if I was a player ... 100 people to help cheer us on, that would be great.”
7-footer Withey said he never interfered with a ball above the basket last year during eight games overseas. “When you’re playing, you’re so used to these rules,” Withey said. “But I’ve definitely seen a lot of Europeans do it. It definitely makes you mad, because you’re like, ‘Come on.’” Sophomore point guard Naadir Tharpe agreed that the goaltending rule would be the most significant change KU would face during the Jayhawks’ four exhibition games. KU opens with a noon (U.S. Central time) game
against the Swiss National Team today in Fribourg. “Everybody’s going to be looking like, ‘What the heck is going on?’” Tharpe said. “But that’s the way it’s played. “It’s regular basketball. It’s still the same game. You’ve still got to put the ball in the hoop. We all know what to do.” The Jayhawks also scrimmaged with an international basketball Saturday to try to get used to it prior to its tour. “If it’s brand new, it’s very slippery and it’s really hard to play with. The one we were playing with (Saturday) was broken in.
Those feel like normal,” Withey said. “If they’re broken in, they’re fine.” KU freshman guard Andrew White said he’d been shooting with the new ball over the last week. “No excuses,” White said. “We’re going to get out there, and we’re going to play with whatever they give us. It’s a little different, but we’ll adjust to it.” A few of the trip’s other rules changes include: 10-minute quarters; 24-second shot clocks; eight-second half-court violations; five-second allowance for free throws; and extended trapezoid lanes.
Travel talk: Before his team left for Europe, Withey said he was looking forward to experiencing different cultures. “I’ve been over to Europe a couple of times, but every time I’ve been, I’ve been stuck in a hotel and just playing basketball,” Withey said. “Coach (Self) has told us we’re going to be able to go out and sightsee, experience everything. I’m definitely looking forward to that. I’m going with all my best friends, so that’s going to be a good time.” Withey mentioned the Eiffel Tower in Paris as
Puett, a 1972 grad, had never been to Europe before Monday. A longtime KU fan, she met her late husband, Eldon, when he performed as the mascot Big Jay in the early ’70s. After receiving an email about the tour, she ran the idea by her son,
Jason, and daughter, Lindsay, before making her final decision to take the trip by herself. Puett shared Monday’s dinner table with five other women she’d just met. “My son said, ‘What could be better than to go to Europe and get to watch KU basketball?’”
Puett said. “It’s like a winwin situation.” Topekans Clyde and Janis Holiwell, who have been married for 20 years, saw the same sort of opportunity with this year’s exhibition trip. “We would have never come to Europe by ourself,” Janis said. “This is a really
neat opportunity to come with a group like this.” The Holiwells, who also made trips to Maui and the Final Four in New Orleans with KU basketball in the last year, said they weren’t expecting perfection from the Jayhawks — especially with the travel delays. “However the guys play
here is OK,” Clyde said. “I think with this particular team, with so many freshmen … I think it’s just a jelling-and-trying-to-getthem-chemistry kind of thing. That’s the main thing we’re looking forward to. “We want to win the games, of course, but if we don’t, it’s not a big deal.”
end back in middle school and has loved every snap since a little more, credits the KU players for making the transition so painless. “I think I did need a change of scenery,” he said. “And it’s helped out a lot. It’s been great being with these guys. They’ve accepted me and taken me in, and I really just want to be there as a leader for them.” That’s the area in which Williams has focused much of his time so far in preseason camp. After playing in 26 games — including two starts — with Nebraska during the past two seasons, the former Husker believes he has something to offer the KU program. And even though he will only be here for one year, Williams said he already feels like a part of something special. “It’s my senior year, it’s my last year, and this senior class wants to go off with a bang,” he said. “We’ll be the start to that build-up.” As for his own personal goals this year, Williams said he would let his play speak for him.
“I just want to go out and have a big year,” he said, “just go out with a bang and have the best year that I can have.”
four down linemen. “In this league … we want to be able to use several different looks up front, but right now we’ve only been practicing our four-down stuff.” How’s it coming? “We look pretty good,” Wyatt said. “We’re starting to get an idea of how we need to play, techniques and things, to go with a four-man front.”

ability that propelled him to a 1,467-yard season in 2010, the offense should make a huge leap. Free agent right tackle Eric Winston could shore up what had been a gaping need. In addition, tight end Kevin Boss was signed in the offseason along with running back Peyton Hillis. Putting it all together is Daboll, whose Miami offense last season gutted the Chiefs defense in a 31-3 blowout. Crennel, a defensive specialist, has happily turned the offense over to his 37-year-old coordinator. Enthusiastic, animated and hands-on, he’s all over the practice field. Since 2006, he’s also coached for the Patriots, Jets, Browns and Dolphins. “I’ve been a few different places and I’ve taken bits and pieces probably from all the offenses,” he said. “At the end of the day, you have to do what suits your players and you have to use the plays that they’re good at.” With Daboll as his offensive coordinator in 2010, the 250-pound Hillis became the first player in Browns history to rush for 1,000 yards, catch 50 passes and score 10 touchdowns. “He knows how to create mismatches and stuff like that and he’s always done a great job,” said Hillis. “He’s a big players’ coach. We always know he is going to put us in the right position. When I see him travel around from New England to Cleveland to Miami, I see he got a lot out of players. That’s just because he’s such a smart coach and knows how to connect with players.” As Daboll sets about polishing the finer points of his system, not everything is brand new. Most of the line, except center and right tackle, is back. So is second-year wide receiver Jon Baldwin, who seems to be atoning for a tough rookie season with
flash and dash that’s made him the story of early camp. Baldwin may also be seizing a big opportunity. In the only negative of an otherwise stable and welloiled camp, wide receiver Dwayne Bowe continues sitting out because he has not gotten a long-term contract. No one expects Bowe to pass up a $9.5 million guarantee and stay out all year. But almost everything else is upbeat offensively for Kansas City. Cassel seems more relaxed, which may have something to do with the departure of Todd Haley, who was fired as head coach with four games left last season. “He’s dramatically improved,” quarterbacks coach Jim Zorn said. “I really feel that he is farther along than he was last year. He’s really taken charge.” Key to meaningful improvement will be the return of Charles. Charles shot to stardom in 2010 while averaging 6.4 yards per carry. The first look at Charles in post-surgical action will come on Tuesday when the Chiefs practice against the Arizona Cardinals. If all goes well, he and Moeaki will see more action on Friday night when the Chiefs host the Cardinals in their first preseason game. One potential trouble spot is center. Rodney Hudson, a guard since his junior year in college, is taking over for the retired Casey Wiegmann. Veteran guard Ryan Lilja has been taking snaps at the position, though Crennel insists it’s only for purposes of depth. In addition, rookies Jeff Allen and Donald Stephenson figure to see time on the offensive line. “I think Brian has done a good job of installing his offense and getting the players to understand and buy into his philosophy,” Crennel said. “Like I said earlier, the thing I was going to be concerned about would be the young guys, to see how quickly they would pick up things. I think that will be critical as we go down the line.”
He is listed as a starter on KU’s most recent depth chart and has become a leader in practice. “What I’ve seen so far, I’ve liked,” said KU defensive line coach Buddy Wyatt, who recruited Williams to Nebraska out of high school and was instrumental in making the connection this time around. “I think he brings some experience and some confidence to our meeting room. And when we go out there on the field you can hear him making some comments about, ‘Watch this,’ and, ‘Look out for this,’ and those things really have helped our unit become better.” Added Campo: “I know he’s a good football player. I’m happy he’s here. You can tell he’s a fifth-year senior that has aspirations of playing beyond here.” Williams, who played his first snap at defensive
Toben the talker KU D-line coach Buddy Wyatt said Monday that co-captain Toben Opurum so far had been a lot louder in this year’s camp than during previous seasons. “Toben’s a good leader, but I think (senior transfer) Josh (Williams) has helped him as well,” Wyatt said. “Toben has been more vocal this camp. The team voting him a captain has made him step up and say, ‘Hey, my teammates are counting on me so I need to do what I need to do to help them be as good as we can be.’” 4-3 fun Asked what the ideal scheme for KU’s defense would be, Wyatt said the early part of preseason camp had been spent on one style. “We’ve been playing a four-down (system) so far,” Wyatt said of the defensive set that utilizes
one of the sites he most wanted to visit. The Jayhawks will head from Zurich to Paris on Thursday courtesy of high-speed rail. “I heard the food is a little weird,” Withey said of France, “but I might try a snail or something like that.”
Today’s game: Today’s KU-Swiss National team game will not be televised. It is not available on radio. The Journal-World will have a live blog of the game available at kusports.com. The game is supposed to tip off at noon Central time. That’s 7 p.m. in Switzerland.
Stowers shining While a lot of the offseason attention has been on the two defensive linemen who have not yet made it to campus — Wyatt had no update on the arrival dates for Ty McKinney or Jordan Tavai — KU’s defensive-line leader shifted his focus to one who had — juco defensive tackle Keon Stowers. “He comes to play in practice every play,” Wyatt said. “I just love being around him. You can look in his eyes, and when I’m up there talking to the group, I can just feel him burning a hole in the back of my head. He just takes everything in, he’s soaking everything up.”
White Sox hold off Royals, 4-2 CHICAGO (AP) — Chris Sale had time to catch his breath. Now, maybe, he’s locked in. Sale pitched eight solid innings, Paul Konerko and Gordon Beckham homered late, and the Chicago White Sox beat the Kansas City Royals 4-2 on Monday night. “I went through a little dead arm period, but it’s par for the course,” Sale said. “It’s all behind us now. We’ve got a couple months left and we’re going to have to make a push and it’s not going to be easy.” The margin for error is slim, with a 11⁄2-game lead over Detroit for the AL Central lead. The Tigers are playing well, but so are the White Sox. And they pulled this one out thanks to a strong start by their pitcher and some big hits toward the end. Konerko tied it leading off the seventh and Beckham gave the White Sox a 3-2 lead with a solo shot in the eighth off Luis Mendoza. Kevin Youkilis added an RBI double in the inning, and the White Sox won for the 10th time in 13 games. A.J. Pierzynski added two hits, and although he didn’t go deep after tying a club record with homers in five straight games, he did drive in the first run with a double in the second. Sale (13-3), meanwhile, looked sharp on nine days’ rest, allowing two runs and eight hits while

WHITE SOX STARTING PITCHER CHRIS SALE PUTS HIS HAND on Paul Konerko’s shoulder in the dugout after Konerko’s home run in the seventh inning. The White Sox beat the Royals, 4-2, on Monday in Chicago. striking out seven without a walk. He gave up solo homers to Jeff Francoeur and Billy Butler, but otherwise kept the Royals off-balance, with his fastball consistently in the mid-90s mph. Sale was passed over during the last time through the rotation. The White Sox wanted to give him more rest in his first year as a starter. “It gives you a little bit more time to recover and catch your breath, I guess you could say, but you’ve still got a couple of months left,” Sale said. “You’ve just got to keep going with it.”
The Royals were impressed. “If he stays healthy he has a chance to win a bunch of ballgames in his career,” Francoeur said. Addison Reed worked the ninth for his 20th save in 23 chances, retiring Eric Hosmer on a double-play grounder with runners on first and second to end the game. Mendoza (5-8) gave up seven hits and four runs in 71⁄3 innings. Butler made it 2-1 in the seventh with his 21st homer. Konerko tied it in the bottom half with a line drive to left that just cleared the wall and landed in the bullpen.

Verlander (12-7) threw 132 pitches, his most in a regular-season game, and sent the Tigers to their fifth straight win. Verlander gave up two unearned runs after his fielding error extended the fifth inning. Ivan Nova (10-6) was roughed up for seven runs and 11 hits — matching a career high — in 51⁄3 innings.

Twins 14, Indians 3 CLEVELAND — Justin Morneau homered twice and drove in four runs, Joe Mauer had three RBIs, and Ryan Doumit hit a threerun homer to lead Minnesota to a victory over Cleveland on Monday night, the Indians’ 10th straight loss. Ben Revere had four of the Twins’ 14 hits and extended his hitting streak to 20 games while Josh Willingham hit his 29th homer, matching his career-high. The Twins, who homered three times in their 10-run second, fell one run shy of their biggest inning in franchise history. Minnesota has scored 11 runs in an inning four times. Scott Diamond (10-5) allowed three runs in seven innings as the Twins beat the Indians for the sixth straight time this season. Minnesota swept a threegame series at Target Field in late July. The Indians went 0-9 on a road trip that ended Sunday. Before Monday’s game, general manager Chris Antonetti expressed his support for manager Manny Acta and the coaching staff even though the team was coming off the least successful trip in the franchise’s 112year history. The trip ended in shocking fashion when All-Star closer Chris Perez allowed five runs with two outs in the 10th in a 10-8 loss to Detroit. The Indians never had a chance Monday and are two losses from the longest losing streak in franchise history, a 12game skid in 1931. Cleveland lost 11 straight in 2009.

The Americans (5-0) will play Australia (3-2) in a quarterfinal game Wednesday. Also Monday, American judo fighter Nick Delpopolo apologized after he was expelled from the Olympics for doping, blaming the disqualification on his unintentional consumption of something baked with marijuana. Delpopolo is the first of the 10,500 London Games athletes to fail an in-competition doping test. The International Olympic Committee said it disqualified him from the 73-kilogram class, where he placed seventh. He beat opponents from Hong Kong and Belgium, then lost to fighters from South Korea and Mongolia. The IOC added that he tested positive for metabolites of cannabis after competing on July 30, the day of his event. The judoka from Westfield, N.J., said his positive test was “caused by my inadvertent consumption of food that I did not realize had been baked with marijuana” before he left for the Olympics. “I apologize to U.S. Olympic Committee, to my teammates, and to my fans, and I am embarrassed by this mistake,” he said in a statement released by the USOC. “I look forward to representing my country in the future, and will rededicate myself to being the best judo athlete that I can be.” Defending Olympic 50K race walk champion Alex Schwazer also tested positive for doping, and the Italian Olympic Committee said he had been removed from the team. Schwazer was scheduled to compete on Saturday. Jenn Suhr has been America’s best female pole vaulter for a while. Now she’s the best in the world. Suhr rounded out her

would talk about how humans are destroying the planet with wacky insane human behavior such as burning fuel. Then she would shout “SCUTTLE!” again, and off we would go. At one point I lost the herd. I came scuttling around a corner, and I saw no cockroach shells, only civilians. Two women were staring at me. I said — this is a direct quote — “Do you know which way the cockroaches went?” One of them pointed to some stairs, and I scuttled that way. I quickly rejoined the herd, but I will not soon forget the feeling of panic I had when I was separated from it. The next time I see a cockroach running around my kitchen floor, alone and vulnerable, I will not stomp on it with cruel indifference, as I have done so often in the past. I will stomp on it with heartfelt sympathy. We scuttled around the museum for 45 minutes, ending up on a balcony looking down on the museum crowd. There, under Kate’s direction, we waved our antennae goodbye to the human race, which — this was the Subtle Educational Message of the tour — is doomed.

Dear Annie: For the past seven years, I’ve worked for “Joe” and his assistant, “Nancy.” Nancy recently took a four-month leave due to stress and anxiety. During her absence, Joe and I went to lunch a few times and dinner on one occasion. Nothing romantic happened. I planned to let Nancy know at the time, but didn’t think it was important enough to send an email. I left her a voicemail to call me and hoped we’d get together during her leave. Unfortunately, I didn’t get the chance. When she came back, Nancy accused me of “swooping in” and taking over Joe. I have tried talking to her, but she’s angry that I didn’t tell her during her leave. I explained that I tried, but she never called me back. I also suspect that she is spreading rumors about me, saying I want

to sleep with Joe. That’s not true. It is extremely uncomfortable in the office now. Although I love my work, I may need to look for a new job. It upsets me that someone could be so cruel, even though I tried my best to be supportive during her leave. Any suggestions for coping with Nancy? — Co-worker Dear Co-worker: Nancy seems very proprietary toward Joe, and unless they are a romantic couple, he should set her straight. Her behav-
NFL may take ‘Knocks’ It’s hard to launch a new series in the face of Olympics ratings domination, but try launching a whole new football season. A preseason NFL tradition since 2001, “Hard Knocks” (9 p.m., HBO) returns to cover the training camp of the Miami Dolphins. Although this affords Dolphins fans and others an inside look at their team’s preparations and roster cuts, television expose has not always been a blessing for sports franchises. The Dolphins don’t have to go far to ask Miami Marlins fans if the decision for the baseball team (most notably, manager Ozzie Guillen) to appear on the Showtime series “The Franchise” has been fruitful. Chosen by many preseason prognosticators to dominate their National League division, the Marlins have been a bitter disappointment. Like many reality shows, “Hard Knocks” has to emphasize “drama,” and that may not be entirely good for the team. Due to a labor dispute, there was no “Hard Knocks” last summer. In 2010, “Hard Knocks” offered New York Jets coach Rex Ryan plenty of chances to make wild statements and predictions and put himself forward as either a leader or a distraction, depending on your point of view. After his team’s disappointing 2011 season, Ryan promised to be more buttoned-up. Such behavior could work out better for his team, but it would make him a dull presence on “Hard Knocks.” Over the years, the show has made stars of some players willing to act up for the cameras. In 2009, Bengals star Chad Ochocinco entered several catchphrases and sound bites into the pop culture lexicon. And some characters have even gone on to other reality shows. Emmitt Smith prepped for his last season on the Dallas Cowboys during the 2002 installment of “Hard Knocks.” He went on to win “Dancing With the Stars” four years later.

ior is unprofessional and disruptive. But you are not entirely blameless. Having lunch and dinner with your boss could be misconstrued, and you were well aware that this would bother Nancy. You should have made a greater effort to speak to her during her absence. Apologize sincerely for unintentionally stepping on her toes, reassure her that you have no interest in Joe, and then let her make the next move. If time does not alleviate the situation, you may opt to take it up with human resources. Dear Annie: My husband is retired, while I still work four days a week. He hires someone to cut the grass, but I trim the bushes, pull the weeds, wash the windows and do all the housecleaning and laundry. He will help cook because I don’t have time and he likes to eat.
JACQUELINE BIGAR’S STARS
For Tuesday, Aug. 7: This year you are full of energy and easily could become frustrated. Be verbal, and ask for more feedback. If you are single, you find yourself drawn to a suitor who might be emotionally unavailable. If you are attached, the two of you would enjoy scheduling a longdesired trip. The Stars Show the Kind of Day You’ll Have: 5-Dynamic; 4-Positive; 3-Average; 2-So-so; 1-Difficult Aries (March 21-April 19) Once more, you are nearly unstoppable with your high energy. In fact, if someone stands in your way, you might feel like a freight train about to run him or her over. Tonight: Whatever is your pleasure. Taurus (April 20-May 20) You can express your feelings in a manner that lets you be heard. However, only someone who really cares about you might listen intently. Tonight: Not to be found. Gemini (May 21-June 20) You might want to look at a friendship in a new light. Somehow, others are not coming from the same place as you. Tonight: Where the action is. Cancer (June 21-July 22) Venus moves into your sign today, adding extra allure and desirability. You find that others keep asking you to assume more responsibility in their lives. Tonight: Till the wee hours. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) Your fiery ways make a big difference with many people. Some people are intimidated by your energy, yet others find it to be contagious. Tonight: Try something totally new.
So what does he do all day? He hangs out with his friends, goes for a walk or to the gym, attends Bible study classes and visits the sick. I think maybe I should get sick and see if he will visit me. — Overworked in Ohio Dear Ohio: While it’s admirable that your husband visits the sick, he apparently believes that retirement means he is free from all obligations except those he willingly chooses. This is unfair to you. First try talking to him about it, explaining that you see no reason to have two jobs while he has none. Tell him that pitching in and doing his share will help your marriage. But you also are taking on more than you need to. If you can afford it, hire someone to do the more difficult, time-consuming chores. Leave his laundry where it falls, and let him handle it. You can make choices, too.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) You could be encouraged to deal with one individual directly. A sense of insecurity marks your interactions. Tonight: Keep togetherness in mind. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) You know what is going on, but you can’t isolate yourself from dealing with the matter at hand. A situation could become increasingly difficult to handle. Tonight: Sort through ideas. Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) Realize that you are limited when it comes to how much you can accomplish. Understand what is happening with an associate or acquaintance you deal with on a daily basis. Tonight: Easy works. Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) A child or new friend pulls you into a fun situation. Go along for the ride. Tonight: Let off some steam. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) You could be directly impacted by another’s energy. He or she could be very pushy. Tonight: Happy to head home. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) Your words have punch to them — much more than you think. Turn around and observe the reactions around you, then you will realize your power. Tonight: Share dinner with a pal. Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) Someone you care about might be unusually affectionate. Nevertheless, dealing with an associate or partner tests your limits and helps you stay grounded. Tonight: Treat yourself well.
