‘You can say the word: Alzheimer’s’ Deborah Gomez

Kevin Anderson Photos/Special to the Journal-World

FORMER REP. DENNIS MOORE AND HIS WIFE, STEPHENE MOORE, make a batch of brownies together recently at their Lenexa home. Moore, a six-term congressman, announced earlier this year that he had been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease.

After his own diagnosis, former politician seeks to help others with memory disease By Caroline Boyer

5.4 million Americans have it

Former Congressman Dennis Moore and his wife, Stephene, each now have a permanent piece of jewelry: a purple Alzheimer’s Awareness wristband. Since the six-term congressman announced earlier this year that he was diagnosed with the disease in 2011, the Lenexa couple have been taking steps to turn a negative into a positive: to promote awareness of Alzheimer’s and the growing number of people affected by it. Their wristbands serve as a daily

The Alzheimer’s Association reports that 5.4 million Americans have the disease, and that number is expected to grow to 13 million by 2025. Alzheimer’s is now the sixth-leading cause of death in the country, and the direct costs of caring for those with Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia are projected to total $200 billion in 2012. In Kansas, the number of those with the disease is expected to increase from 53,000 in 2010 to 62,000 in 2025.

NOW RETIRED FROM POLITICS, former Rep. Dennis Moore faces a new challenge in his life as he copes with the early stages of Alzheimer’s disease. reminder to share the message with others. “It’s really to help the community understand that you can say the word ‘Alzheimer’s.’ You can talk

about it with your family,” Stephene Moore said. “Very sadly, we know people, one family in particular, … they are not allowed to talk about it. The

husband … thinks he’s going to snap (his wife) out of it. That’s a bad attitude to have; that’s exactly what

Police: Parents believed kids were possessed By George Diepenbrock

Lawrence police officers testified Tuesday that they were told Adolfo and Deborah Gomez tied up and blindfolded their 5- and 7-year-old children in a Walmart parking lot in June because they believed the kids were possessed by demons. Douglas County District Judge Paula Martin ruled at the conclusion of a preliminary hearing that the suburban Chicago couple should face a trial on two counts each of child abuse for the incident. “This is not the type of punishment that a parent disciplines a child with,” Assistant Douglas County District Attorney Deborah Moody said in a closing argument accusing the couple of conducting inhumane corporal punishment. The family was traveling from their home in Northlake, Ill., with their two younger children and three older ones — ages 12, 15 and 16 — to see a relative in Arizona before their Chevrolet Suburban broke down on Interstate 70, causing the couple and their five children to stop in Lawrence. Two days later, police were called when a shopper, Linda

City approves purchasing trash carts, cheaper rate By Chad Lawhorn

Lawrence residents, start measuring your trash. City commissioners on Tuesday agreed to spend $885,490 to order enough trash carts to outfit every

single-family home in the city with a plastic cart. But commissioners also agreed to a new rate plan that will cut the trash bills of households that can routinely fit their trash into a small, 35-gallon cart. “It seems to me we want

we don’t want.” The Moores say they are approached more and more often by others who have questions about the disease. “That’s why we want to raise public awareness and encourage people if they think there is a concern, to maybe get a diagnosis or get a medical examination, find out if there’s a real problem,” Dennis Moore said. When Dennis, 66, began to exhibit some signs of memory loss, the first doctor the Moores saw blamed it on stress. But that didn’t ring true for them, so they visited another doctor at St. Luke’s Hospital in February of last year. The official diagnosis came four months later. Dennis Moore’s father had the disease, so Dennis said it wasn’t totally unexpected. But before his father’s death in 2005, the Moores had experienced the discomfort of not knowing how to help his parents, escalated by the fact that they lived hours away in Wichita. “It was hard to watch; you didn’t know what to do,” Stephene Moore said. “You didn’t know what was going on, and we were at a loss for how we could really help, aside from being there for (Dennis’) mom.” The Moores won’t be facing those problems this time. They are taking advantage of services offered through the Alzheimer’s Association’s Heart of America chapter in Prairie Village, including support groups, which they attend twice monthly. Dennis attends a group for those with the disease, while Stephene attends a group for caregivers,

which she says has helped her deal with the daily frustrations that come from the short-term memory loss Dennis has been experiencing. “I would encourage people who have received the diagnosis to get involved with a group like we are,” Dennis said. “I think that really does help the family; it helps understanding — the people involved understand what they can do to better deal with the situation.” The Moores recently have made greater advocacy efforts, going to Washington, D.C., in April to speak at the National Alzheimer’s Association Advocacy Forum. In June, they spearheaded a fundraiser for an education and awareness initiative, now named in their honor, at the Alzheimer Association’s Heart of America chapter. Dennis is currently taking just one medication for his Alzheimer’s and has tolerated it well. A challenge for many is finding the right medication. He has adopted other healthy practices in the hope of slowing the disease’s progression, taking fish oil and multivitamins, as well as making a daily smoothie with coconut oil, which is purported to help Alzheimer’s patients, and walking daily. They have made basic plans for the care decisions they will have to make in the future, though they hope those decisions are far away. “We’re just dealing with it day by day,” Stephene Moore said. “We know what to expect, but of course we don’t know when to expect it. So between now and then, you just deal with it day to day and continually field questions ... we hope to continue to educate people and heighten the awareness because it’s not going to go away.”

mended. Commissioners then reduced the 35-gallon rate by $1 compared with what staff members had recommended. The city is still proposing that residents “occasionally” will be allowed to set out extra bags of trash that won’t fit into their wheeled carts. But commissioners said the city likely will have to be strict on the enforcement for those taking advantage of the reduced 35-gallon rate. “We need to write some type of policy that if this is abused, it will be taken away,” said City Commis-

sioner Aron Cromwell. In other news, commissioners agreed to a 20-month, $233,800 lease to move the Lawrence Public Library into the former Borders bookstore, 700 N.H., while the main library undergoes a $19 million expansion. The move is expected to happen by early January. Commissioners said they expect the move to help save on construction costs at the library.

the 12-year-old girl said Adolfo Gomez required the younger children to be tied up periodically to keep their hands and legs from making a V-shape, which the girl said was a sign of the devil. The children’s eyes also were covered, and the family covered windows of the vehicle “because demons were outside the Suburban,” Fowler said. The officer said the girl also mentioned an attempt by the parents “to cast out the demons” from the two younger children, but she did not elaborate. According to Fowler’s testimony, the 12-year-old girl had also said the family talked about not wanting to kill the demons because “if the demons were to die, then (the younger children) would die as well.”

their own religious beliefs, and he suggested the children even felt safe being blindfolded and bound based on the family’s beliefs. He said officers testified the children were calm when they arrived. “Whether you agree with that or not, families in the United States are afforded a very wide berth in how they deal with issues or religion, education and discipline,” Griffy said. “These parents were doing the best that they could do with the beliefs they had to protect these children. And these children knew they had loving and protected parents.” Martin did agree with defense attorneys on one issue: She found prosecutors did not present enough evidence to support five counts each of felony aggravated child endangerment. Witnesses had testified about the conditions inside the vehicle the family was living in. Police said they found rotting food, bottles of urine and trash inside the vehicle. “These children were living in deplorable conditions,” Moody said. But defense attorneys said the children had no physical injuries, and the couple did provide food and water for them. Martin said conditions in the vehicle were “not ideal.” “Certainly that’s an environment that may cause health problems, but the state presented no evidence as to what those health problems are,” Martin said. Moody said prosecutors would instead file five misdemeanor child endangerment charges each against Deborah and Adolfo Gomez to match the two felony child abuse counts. Adolfo Gomez also faces a felony obstruction charge for resisting officers when they approached the vehicle. Martin is scheduled to arraign the couple Thursday.

Mud forts: history’s dirty work

BRIEFLY Energy Conservation Fair set for Sept. 22 The city of Lawrence will host the Lawrence Energy Conservation Fair from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sept. 22 at Holcom Park Recreation Center at 2700 W. 27th Street. Local builders, architects, government agencies and others will present exhibits showing how to lower utility bills or increase energy efficiency. There will also be electric cars, either a Chevrolet Volt or Nissan LEAF, that adults can test-drive. The event is free to the public. In conjunction with the fair will be the Sustainable Homes Tour, which features homes constructed with renewableresource technologies or energy-efficient methods and appliances. Buses for the tour will leave at 10:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. from the Energy Conservation Fair.

Official predicts return of air service to Topeka TOPEKA (AP) — A Topeka official says commercial flights from the city’s regional airport could resume by next year thanks to $2.2 million in government incentives. Topeka Regional Airport, formerly called Forbes Field, hasn’t had commercial service since Allegiant Air halted its weekly round trips to Las Vegas in 2007. The Topeka Capital-Journal reports the Metropolitan Topeka Airport Authority learned Tuesday that it has secured $950,000 from the U.S. Department of Transportation. The state allocated $1 million earlier this year to lure commercial flights back to the airport, and the authority has set aside another $250,000. Authority president Eric Johnson said the incentives will let the agency begin negotiating with airlines to serve the city.

New ID law has little effect on provisional ballots By Alex Garrison

Nearly exactly the same number of voters were given provisional ballots in this year’s Aug. 7 primaries as last year’s. About 27 percent of the provisional ballots were cast because of Kansas’ voter identification law, new this year. Douglas County Clerk Jamie Shew said that voters cast 171 provisional ballots,

compared with 172 last year. Forty-six of the provisional ballots this year were given to voters who weren’t able to show suitable ID at the polls. The most common reason, other than ID, that voters get provisional ballots is because they show up to the wrong polling location. Voters have until 9 a.m. Thursday to send proof of identification to the county clerk’s office to have their vote

count in the canvass. Twenty-eight of the 46 have done this as of about 4 p.m. Tuesday, Shew said, leaving 18 that the office are still trying to reach. A few people they have contacted indicated that they don’t intend to turn in proof of ID as a “protest of the law,” Shew said. The 18 left can scan their IDs and email an image to elections@, fax it to 832-5192 or

bring it by the County Courthouse at 1100 Mass. Shew said that the unofficial total voter turnout last Tuesday was 10,086, or about 13.5 percent of the total number of registered voters as of June. About 19.2 percent of registered Democrats voted and about 23.1 percent of Republicans. — Reporter Alex Garrison can be reached at 832-6314. Follow her at

Student achievement to be measured differently under waiver By Scott Rothschild

TOPEKA — State education officials Tuesday said freedom from some of the requirements of the federal No Child Left Behind law will produce a better way to gauge student performance and get help to students who need it. Last month, Kansas received the NCLB waiver from federal education officials. “The waiver does not remove accountability” for measuring student achievement, said Judi Miller, assistant director of Title Programs and Services at the Kansas Department of Education. Miller said the waiver allows the state to implement an accountability system that will provide a more meaningful measure of students and schools. Instead of focusing on meeting Adequate Yearly Progress under NCLB, education officials will look at multiple mea-

The waiver also means that Kansas will implement a system that includes student achievement as a factor in teacher evaluations. sures, Miller said. The changes take effect in the 2012-13 school year. The waiver also means that Kansas will implement a system that includes student achievement as a factor in teacher evaluations. While statewide tests on math and reading will continue to be used, performance will also be measured by student achievement, student growth, decreasing the achievement gap and reducing the percent of students who are not proficient. Low-income schools and school districts will no longer face the possibility of being placed on the “on improvement” list, but will be identified as “reward schools,”

“priority schools” and “focus schools.” Reward schools will be recognized for high performance, priority schools are low performing, and focus schools have the largest achievement gap. Kansas submitted its waiver request in February after President Barack Obama’s administration announced that it would grant state waivers from some NCLB provisions provided that the states pursue education reforms. Several members of the State Board of Education said they were satisfied with the proposed changes. But Education Board member Walt Chappell of Wichita said he was concerned about the costs of future testing that will be based on new education standards. “I’m not sure what kind of bear trap we stepped into, but it may be very expensive,” he said.

State education board discusses home-schooling requirements By Scott Rothschild

TOPEKA — Several Kansas State Board of Education members on Tuesday said they are hearing reports of children being kept home to baby-sit younger siblings while their parents claim they are being home-schooled. Board chairman David Dennis of Wichita said the state needs more information on home schools to ensure that children are being taught. Dennis said there are examples of great home schools in Kansas, but he had heard from public school principals about instances where a parent will keep a teenager home “for day care for the other kids.” Then after a couple of years, the teen returns to public school, several years behind, Dennis said. Dennis suggested that perhaps the board should propose legislation to increase the state reporting requirements for homeschoolers. But board member

According to Lawrence police, two men went to the apartment shortly after midnight Monday and allegedly forced their way into the apartment, seeking money owed to one of the suspects. One of the suspects battered and threatened a victim with a knife. The suspects fled before police arrived. On Tuesday morning, police arrested a 21-yearold Lawrence man in connection with the case.

The board agreed to discuss the issue more at its next meeting in September. Kansas doesn’t specifically authorize home schooling, but it does recognize what are called “non-accredited private schools.” Nonaccredited schools are not required to employ teachers who are certified by the state, but their courses must be taught by competent instructors, and classes must be held for about the same number of days as public schools. The only requirement to have a non-accredited pri-

Some in poverty don’t qualify for Medicaid By Carla K. Johnson and Kelli Kennedy

You fall through the cracks and there’s nothAssociated Press ing you can do about it. It makes me feel like garbage, like the American dream, my dream in MIAMI — Sandra Pico is poor, but not poor enough. my homeland is not being accomplished.” She makes about $15,000 a year, supporting her daughter and unemployed husband. She thought she’d be able to get health insurance after the Supreme Court upheld President Barack Obama’s health care law. Then she heard that her own governor won’t agree to the federal plan to extend Medicaid coverage to people like her in two years. So she expects to remain uninsured, struggling to pay for her blood pressure medicine. “You fall through the cracks and there’s nothing you can do about it,” said the 52-year-old home health aide. “It makes me feel like garbage, like the American dream, my dream in my homeland is not being accomplished.” Many working parents like Pico are below the federal poverty line but don’t qualify for Medicaid, a decades-old statefederal insurance program. That’s especially true in states where conservative governors say they’ll reject the Medicaid expansion under Obama’s health law. In South Carolina, a yearly income of $16,900 is too much for Medicaid for a family of three. In

— Sandra Pico, 52-year-old home health aide Florida, $11,000 a year is too much. In Mississippi, $8,200 a year is too much. In Louisiana and Texas, earning more than just $5,000 a year makes you ineligible for Medicaid. Governors in those five states have said they’ll reject the Medicaid expansion underpinning Obama’s health law after the Supreme Court’s decision gave states that option. They favor small government and say they can’t afford the added cost to their states even if it’s delayed by several years. Some states estimate the expansion could ultimately cost them a billion dollars a year or more. Many of the people affected by the decision are working parents who are poor — but not poor enough — to qualify for Medicaid. Republican Mitt Romney’s new running mate, conservative Wisconsin congressman Paul Ryan, has a budget plan that would turn Medicaid over to the states and sharply limit federal dollars. Romney hasn’t specifically said where he stands on

Ryan’s idea but has expressed broad support for his vice presidential pick’s proposals. Medicaid now covers an estimated 70 million Americans and would cover an estimated 7 million more in 2014 under the Obama health law’s expansion. In contrast, Ryan’s plan could mean 14 million to 27 million Americans would ultimately lose coverage, even beyond the effect of a repeal of the health law, according to an analysis by the nonpartisan Kaiser Family Foundation of Ryan’s 2011 budget plan. For now, most states don’t cover childless adults, but all states cover some low-income parents. The income cutoff, however, varies widely from state to state. Most states cover children in low-income families. Manuel and Sandra Pico’s 15-year-old daughter is covered by Medicaid. But the suburban Miami couple can’t afford private insurance for themselves, and they make too much for Florida’s Medicaid.

In all but one of the states where governors are rejecting or leaning against the expansion, the income level that disqualifies a parent from Medicaid is below the federal poverty line. Only in New Jersey, where Gov. Chris Christie has said he’s leaning against the expansion, is Medicaid available to parents with incomes at the poverty line and slightly above. New Jersey will cover a parent making $24,645 in a family of three. Most states base Medicaid eligibility for parents on household income and how it compares to the federal poverty level, which was $18,530 for a family of three in 2011, the year being used for easier state-bystate comparisons. In Louisiana, the eligibility cutoff for a working parent is 25 percent of federal poverty, or $4,633 for a family of three. In Nevada, it’s 87 percent of the federal poverty level, or $16,121 for a family of three. That’s been the range in states where governors are likely saying no to expanded Medicaid. In contrast, states where governors have said they’ll expand Medicaid are more generous with working parents. The Medicaid eligibility cutoff ranges in those states from Washington’s $13,527 to Minnesota’s $39,840.

Ron Palillo, of ‘Welcome Back, Kotter,’ dies WEST PALM BEACH, FLA. — Ron Palillo, the actor best known as the nerdy high school student Arnold Horshack on the 1970s sitcom “Welcome Back, Kotter,” died Tuesday in Palm Beach Gardens, Fla. He was 63. Palillo suffered an apparent heart attack at his home about 4 a.m., said Karen Poindexter, a close friend of the actor. He was pronounced dead at Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center. Palillo was inextricably linked with the character he played from 1975 to 1979

on “Kotter,” the hit ABC sitcom, in which title character Gabe Kotter returns to his Brooklyn alma mater Palillo to teach a group of loveable wiseguys known as the Sweathogs. Horshack was the nasally teen who yelped, “Oooh, ooh,” and shot his hand skyward whenever Kotter posed a question.

Well users find faucets running dry By David Mercer Associated Press

CHAMPAIGN, ILL. — After months of record-breaking heat and drought, many rural Americans who rely on wells for water are getting an unwelcome surprise when they turn on their faucets: The tap has run dry. The lack of running water can range from a manageable nuisance to an expensive headache. Homeowners and businesses are being forced to buy thousands of gallons from private suppliers, to drill deeper or to dig entirely new wells. Mary Lakin’s family drained the last of its well water late last month in the small northern Indiana community of Parr. Since then, Lakin, her husband and two children have bathed and done laundry at relatives’ homes and filled buckets from their backyard pool every time they need to flush a toilet. Having water is “just something you take for granted,” she said. “It’s a big hassle, but we’re surviving.” No one tracks the number of wells that go dry, but state and local governments and well diggers

WATER HAULER CARL MARION, of Athens, Ill., pumps water from his 2,000 gallon water tank Aug. 5 on the back of his truck into a campground well in Petersburg, Ill. Across the Midwest the drought is leaving many rural homes and businesses that rely on water wells dry. and water haulers report many more dead wells than in a typical summer across a wide swath of the Midwest, from Nebraska to Indiana and Wisconsin to Missouri. It’s not unusual for rural wells to stop producing toward the end of a hot summer. But this year is different. Some of the same wells that are known to run dry in August or September instead ran out in June. Water suppliers and well drillers across the Midwest say they’re working long hours to

keep up with demand. “It’s seven days a week, man,” said Carl Marion, a water hauler in Athens, Ill., north of Springfield. “I work until 12 or 1 o’clock every single night.” Wells are typically drilled 30 or 50 feet down. Some go hundreds of feet before hitting water. And the deeper the well, the more expensive it is, with costs starting at several thousand dollars and climbing in extreme cases into tens of thousands. In the summer, when lawns, gardens, pools and livestock all drive up use,

water levels can drop below a well’s pump. If rain doesn’t replenish the supply, sometimes the only option is to drill deeper or dig an entirely new well. Older wells are particularly vulnerable because they may not hold water as efficiently or they may have been dug in places where most of the water is gone. “It’s sort of Darwinism,” said George Roadcap, a hydro-geologist with the Illinois Water Survey. “The weak wells get shaken out at a time like this. Many people are using wells that are a hundred years old.” In other cases, well owners have hurt themselves with careless water usage, said Richard Hubert, who owns Hubert Water Hauling Service in Smithville, Ill., about 20 miles southeast of St. Louis. “We’ve had a lot of people who were silly enough to take their water out of their well and put it into their pool. Or they ran around watering stuff when we’ve been dry for 10 weeks,” Hubert said. “I don’t know what you’re thinking when you’ve got a shallow well, and it hasn’t rained.”

Romney, Obama go at it over Medicare By David Espo Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Mitt Romney accused President Barack Obama in person and in TV advertising Tuesday of cutting Medicare “to pay for Obamacare,” launching a strong counterattack to Democratic charges that he and running mate Paul Ryan would radically remake the popular health care program that serves tens of millions of seniors. The charge drew a blistering response from Obama’s campaign, which labeled the ad dishonest and hypocritical. Obama “has taken $716 billion out of the Medicare trust fund. He’s raided that trust fund,” Romney said at a campaign stop in Beallsville, Ohio, as he neared the end of a multistate bus trip punctuated by his weekend selection of a ticket mate. “And you know what he did with it? He’s used it to pay for Obamacare, a risky, unproven, federal



takeover of health care. And If I’m president of the United States, we’re putting the $716 billion back,” he said. Aides said a commercial containing the same allegation would begin airing immediately in several battleground states, although they declined to provide details. In a campaign without summer doldrums, the rival sets of ticket mates campaigned in a half-dozen of the most hotly contested states, in settings as diverse as a coal mine in Ohio (Romney); a wind farm in Iowa (Obama) and a casino in Nevada (Ryan.) Vice President Joe Biden stirred controversy in Virginia when he said the Republicans would

favor the big banks over the interests of consumers. He said Romney has said he is “going to let the big banks once again write their own rules. Unchain Wall Street.” Hundreds of black voters were in the audience that Biden told, “They’re going to put y’all back in chains.” Romney’s campaign reacted strongly to that, saying the comments were “not acceptable in our political discourse and demonstrate yet again that the Obama campaign will say and do anything to win this election.” Biden later conceded using the wrong word but dismissed the Republican criticism and did not apologize. At a speech closing his bus tour, Romney delivered a sweeping indictment of Obama’s campaign. “Mr. President, take your campaign of division and anger and hate back to Chicago,” he said in Chillicothe, Ohio, insisting that Obama had abandoned his 2008 campaign’s mes-

sages of hope and change. The Obama campaign said Romney’s comments seemed “unhinged.” The tempest over Biden’s remark was modest compared to the building struggle over Medicare. Romney’s criticism on that subject appeared an attempt to gain some measure of control over an issue likely to play a significant role in the outcome of the election. Florida, Pennsylvania and Iowa are among the top five states in the country in the percentage of people 65 and over, and all three are battleground states. In a rebuttal issued shortly after the Romney TV ad was released, Obama spokeswoman Lis Smith said the president’s health care law did not “cut a single guaranteed Medicare benefit, and Mitt Romney embraced the very same savings when he promised he’d sign Paul Ryan’s budget. ...The truth is that the RomneyRyan budget would end Medicare as we know it.”

LAWRENCE JOURNAL-WORLD Wednesday, August 15, 2012



School caution In light of the uncertain state funding picture, local school officials need to be cautious in seeking new bond debt.


aution and vision should be the watchwords if the Lawrence school board proceeds with plans for an April bond issue. The board has hired a local architectural firm to lead it through the pre-bond planning process, hoping to gain public approval of funds to support elementary schools, especially those in east and central Lawrence, as well as to address technology needs and expansion of high school career and technical programs. Although the superintendent and the board have discussed a “no-tax-increase” bond and a “tax decrease” bond (meaning the new bond would be offset by expiring debt), it’s important for the district to realize it is not operating in a static environment. Unless district leaders have an accurate crystal ball, no one can make any optimistic assumptions about future state aid, the lack of which could trigger the need for more local funding. And the district’s surplus already has shrunk. Those are reasons for caution. A vision for the district also is needed. Perhaps the board members recognize this. They spent part of their time Monday night brainstorming how to engage and inform the public about the district’s needs, in order to build support for the April bond issue. However, it would be well to remember that not too long ago, the community was engaged in long and ultimately fruitless discussions about closing schools and building new schools. Now we apparently are planning to improve and enhance what we already have. The difficulties of dealing with a regularly changing, volunteer board underscore the need for a long-range vision of how to serve the district’s school-age population. Although the board and administration deserve thanks for acting Monday night to lower the district’s mill levy, the fact that no long-range vision has been articulated and presented to the community is surely what makes residents and voters leery of the proposal du jour for more money from local taxpayers. Caution. Vision.

Right-wing terrorists attacking U.S. Can we finally say the thing we have not said so far? Last week, a white supremacist shot up a Sikh temple near Milwaukee, killing six people and wounding three. It is considered likely that the shooter mistook the Sikhs, whose men wear beards and turbans, for Muslims. The massacre came a few weeks after a characteristically baseless charge by Michele Bachmann and several other conservative legislators that a Muslim aide to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has ties to Islamic extremism. The juxtaposition of those two events is emphatically not meant to suggest Bachmann somehow “caused” the Wisconsin rampage. No, the point is that we are looking for terror in all the wrong places. Or, perhaps more accurately, that we are not looking for it in all the right places. In the almost 20 years since the first attack by Muslim extremists on the World Trade Center, the following things have happened: the bombing of a federal building in Oklahoma City leaves 168 dead and 500 injured; one person is killed, over 100 wounded, in a bombing at the Olympics in Atlanta;

These criminals are fanatics, and fanaticism is restricted to no particular ideology.” seven people are arrested for plotting to attack U.S. military bases; Dr. Barnett Slepian is shot and killed in Amherst, N.Y.; five people die in a shooting spree near Pittsburgh; the FBI arrests a man who tried to buy ingredients for sarin, the deadly nerve gas, from an undercover agent; Dr. George Tiller is shot and killed in Wichita, Kan.; a man and his daughter are killed in their home in Arivaca, Ariz.; a man flies a small plane into a building in Austin, killing himself and one other. And now, this. These incidents and dozens more comprise a list maintained by the Southern Poverty Law Center. What they all have in common is

that they spring from motivations (i.e., opposition to taxation, government, immigrants, blacks, gays, abortion and Muslims) that more or less define modern, mainstream, conservatism. So yes, it is time to say the obvious thing no one seems to be saying: America is under attack by right-wing terrorists. And here, again, it is necessary to say what the point is not. Namely, it is not that conservatism equals terrorism. These criminals are fanatics, and fanaticism is restricted to no particular ideology. Ironically, that’s an argument to which conservatives often turn deaf ears when it is made on behalf of Muslims, but that doesn’t make it any less true — or applicable here That said, what’s telling is that we won’t even call this what it is. When the Symbionese Liberation Army and the Weather Underground were committing violence in the 1970s, we were not slow in decrying left-wing terrorism and requiring progressives to disown it. When alQaida kills and maims, we are not shy about branding it Islamic terrorism and requiring moderate Muslims to disown it. For some reason, though,

OLD HOME TOWN From the Lawrence Daily Journal-World for August 15, 1912: “Nearly all of the books that will be required in the rural YEARS schools during the coming school AGO year are to be new. … The classics IN 1912 to be studied this year are ‘The Great Stone Face,’ ‘Snowbound,’ and ‘The Christmas Carol.’ Classics are changed each year, the ones named alternating with ‘Evangeline,’ ‘Rip Van Winkle,’ and ‘The Legend of Sleepy Hollow.’ In daily recitations Kansas History and Civics will alternate, also Classics and Agriculture.”

we are reluctant to call rightwing terror by name. And you can forget requiring conservatives to distance themselves from it. Rather than see a pattern that grows more glaring every day, we see a series of discrete events — this individual tragedy here, that one there, regrettable certainly, but surely not suggestive of any larger picture. Maybe this is because the perpetrators of these crimes are overwhelmingly white Christian men and thus, invisible in a nation where danger is routinely defined as Them, not Us. Maybe it’s because media have become cowed and self-censoring, reflexively flinching from that which might bring accusations of anti-conservative bias. Either way, one wonders how we can confront what we won’t even name. These plots hatched in the fetid backwaters of conservative paranoia ought to be called what they are. The blood of victims demands an honest accounting. We have given them a dishonest silence instead.

Ryan pick refocuses campaign Last Thursday’s Wall Street Journal editorial “Why Not Paul Ryan?” made the case for his selection as the Republican vice-presidential nominee in this statement: “Romney can win a big election over big issues. He’ll lose a small one.” After Ryan’s serious proposal to restructure Medicare — which virtually everyone knows must be reformed — the response from Democrats was an unserious TV ad, which showed a Ryan lookalike pushing an old woman in a wheelchair over a cliff. If Ryan and Romney can effectively respond to such silliness, they will not only win the election; they will actually accomplish something that will benefit all Americans. Is America ready for a serious discussion of issues, rather than the superficial approach that has defined so much of modern politics? We’re about to find out. There may be a remnant, a Puritan ethic, still living within our collective DNA that can remind us about the evil of debt, living within one’s means and taking care of yourself first, rather than relying on inefficient and overreaching government. The Obama administration has done nothing to warrant a second term. If Ryan and Romney can force Americans to pay attention to the need for real change, instead of the unaffordable snake oil Obama has been selling, they will win handily and take back the Senate for Republicans. Anyone needing to be reminded of Ryan’s debating skills should re-visit his criticism of the president’s health-care mea-

It is a truism that a nominee’s pick of a running mate is his first big decision and reflects on what his approach to the presidency will be.” sure before it passed with most of Congress not knowing what was in it. It’s worth your time to watch this ( watch?v=zPxMZ1WdINs). Ryan will wipe the floor with Vice President Joe Biden in their one debate in October, but on the campaign trail he will remind Americans that this election is important. It’s not about race, class, or envy of Romney’s wealth. It is about America’s immediate and long-term future. Surgery is painful, but an ailing nation must have it or we will die financially and culturally. It’s as simple as that. It is a truism that a nominee’s pick of a running mate is his first big decision and reflects on what his approach to the presidency will be. Some other Republican nominees have chosen running mates for reasons other than their intellectual heft. Romney’s pick of Ryan shows he means business.

The Obama smear machine will attack Ryan in every conceivable way, but if Ryan does not allow himself to be distracted and frames the issues in the proper way (“under Obama why would you think you would be better off in four years when you’re worse off today than you were four years ago?”) he might force many Americans to stop being distracted by irrelevancies and start focusing on what matters most. Romney-Ryan must also re-tell America’s story. They should feature at every campaign stop someone who has succeeded without help from the federal government, including small business owners who did, in fact, build their businesses. Let’s see some Americans who overcame difficult circumstances by making right decisions. Inspiration and perspiration — not taxing and spending — built America and can rebuild it. This election isn’t about politicians; it’s about us. Clearing the debris caused by broken and dysfunctional government, while maintaining a safety net for the genuinely needy, will not only restore the economy, it will restore optimism. Ronald Reagan (RomneyRyan is another “RR”) ran for re-election in 1984 and inspired people to believe in themselves, not government. President Obama appears to want the opposite. Ancient cultures attached a lot of meaning to names. In Gaelic, Ryan means “king.” In a country without a monarch, a synonym might very well be “vice president.” — Cal Thomas is a columnist for Tribune Media Services.

To the editor: I always enjoy the Olympics, whether summer or winter. So much excitement, sportsmanship and hope for medals. The only thing that really bothers me happens when the athletes take their national flags and drape them over their shoulders or use them as capes. Each flag represents the history of a country and what it has gone through — years of struggle to be free, wars to help other nations, or even space exploration. A person should be proud of his or her country, not parade around wearing its flag. There are billions of people watching the Olympics on television and they should not see this kind of behavior. Chris Barteldes, Lawrence

Scrap ethanol To the editor: Now is the time to scrap the failed ethanol fuel experiment. Not only is it a fuel source that cannot exist in the marketplace without massive government subsidies, but it uses a resource (corn) that is in shorter supply than ever and has increased in price by 50 percent in the last six weeks. Last year, ethanol production used 40 percent of the available domestic supply and, this year, more corn was used for it than for feed. Yet, it provides less than 1 percent of fuel used worldwide and it is still less efficient than other fuels. Corn makes up a large portion of the 60 percent of our economy that relies on exports and, though the highest acreage since the 1930s was planted this year, the drought has severely impacted corn production. We may be beginning to feel it in the marketplace, but other countries will experience greater hunger and hunger-related diseases with the shortage. Many world organizations have called for the suspension, or repeal, of the EPA-mandated ethanol use rules. Even the “green” lobby decries the deforestation that goes with the push for ethanol. It would have been better if the government had hitched its wagon to natural gas vehicles than listening to the ethanol lobby. Change course now. Ken Meyer, Lawrence

KU HOOPS: Fresh from Europe, the Jayhawks look to the future. 3B POWERFUL PITCHING Jeremy Guthrie gave up just three singles as the Royals shut out the Athletics, 5-0 on Tuesday. Story on 3B



LAWRENCE JOURNAL-WORLD OWednesday, August 15, 2012

KU’s oftinvisible D-line solidifies A year ago, the pocket made the perfect environment for quarterbacks opposing Kansas University to study the defense, existentialism, rhetoric, physics, introduction to western civilization, thermal dynamics, anthropology and whatever other disciplines they might have been exploring in their classes that semester. The pocket made the library seem like an AC/ DC concert by comparison. Serene, unburdened by deadlines of any sort, time suspended. Just one team failed to reach double digits in sacks during the nine-game Big 12 schedule in 2011. That would be the same one that in all games ranked last in the nation in points and yards allowed, the same school that allowed a conference-worst 8.6 yards per pass play and a 67.6 completion percentage in Big 12 action. Clearly, the epic failure of the KU defense a year ago started up front, where the Jayhawks totaled just six sacks in conference play. Naturally, everyone in Camp Charlie insists things will be better this time around because that’s what training camps are all about, getting better, and if you don’t believe you’re going to improve, you’re defeated before you start. Sometimes, it’s not what people say that qualifies as the best indicator, rather how they say it. A year ago, defensive line coach Buddy Wyatt’s voice sounded heavy on hope. He sounds far more confident now. And he doesn’t have to dance around questions, doesn’t have to spin. He can give a straight answer because the truth isn’t as discouraging as in the recent past. “I think our production in the sack area will increase,” Wyatt said. “I still don’t think we’re a great passrushing football team, but I think we have improved.”

KANSAS UNIVERSITY LINEBACKER BEN HEENEY LAUGHS with graduate assistant Maurice Crum during practice, Tuesday near Memorial Stadium. Heeney, a sophomore, wants to start for the Jayhawks this year and might get the chance if he continues to impress coaches.

Speedy, energetic LB Heeney takes aim at starting job By Matt Tait

Kansas University linebacker Ben Heeney knows one way — and one way only — to play football, and, so far this fall, his style has led to good things and high praise for the sophomore from Hutchinson. “That dude is fast and reckless,” senior defensive end Josh Williams said. “He comes straight downhill. Being on the D-line and having a guy like that behind me, I like that a lot.” So do the KU coaches, who have seen enough from Heeney since December to give him regular work as the firstteam middle linebacker during fall camp. Heeney is not the only one who has worked at Mike linebacker. Fifth-year senior Anthony McDonald and true freshman Schyler Miles also are making their case for first-team reps, but an

injury to McDonald and the learning curve for Miles have led to more chances for Heeney. But the 6-foot, 225-pound ball of fury does not worry about the players around him. He never has. From the time he was a third-grader playing up with the fourth- and fifthgrade team back home to the time he became one of just 10 true freshmen to play at KU in 2011, Heeney has used emotion, energy and a no-fear attitude to stand out. “I was never afraid to hit anybody,” he said. “Even when I was just a little third-grader out there, I always kind of held my own. I definitely rang a couple bells and I don’t remember getting mine rung. I think it’s just an instinctual thing.” This season, Heeney has added a dose of IQ to his physical nature, and that, according to linebackers coach DeMontie Cross, has propelled him to improve.

“The kid just stays ready, and he has a really, really good motor,” Cross said. “That allows him to run around and make plays and show up on tape a lot. You can’t deny what the kid’s doing on the practice field.” Head coach Charlie Weis has noticed, too, and, Monday, Weis made sure everyone knew it. “He’s had a really nice camp,” Weis said. “Ben’s put himself in position to play a lot.” That has been Heeney’s goal from Day 1. And while playing in all 12 games a season ago was a good start, most of Heeney’s action came on special teams, where he was arguably KU’s top performer in 2011. Heeney said he loved playing special teams and still does. The all-or-nothing nature of kick coverage and return units suits his style and matches

his mentality. But Heeney said he gladly would abide by the new team rule that says starters can play on just two special teams units. “Right now, I’m just trying to focus on what I’m supposed to do on the field, and if I’m out there starting at middle linebacker on Sept. 1, that’s great,” he said. “I just want to do what’s best for the team and, personally, I think me starting is what’s best for the team.” Perhaps the most impressive thing about Heeney — other than his extreme confidence, of course — is the fact that this whole linebacker thing is relatively new. In high school, he was a record-setting running back on offense and a hard-hitting safety on defense. There are elements of both that translate well to his new position, Heeney said, Please see HEENEY, page 3B

Firebirds teammates linked by common present, past

They’re both playmakers. ... If they have that heritage in their background, it’s just gonna help make it that much easier for them to be players.”

By Benton Smith

They both play quarterback. Each has received allleague recognition as a defensive back. But Free State High teammates Joe Dineen and Kyle McFarland have even more in common. Football runs in their blood. Decades before they put on green and white and became Firebirds teammates, each had a grandfather in crimson and blue making plays on the gridiron for Kansas University. Kyle’s grandpa, John McFarland, played quarterback for the Jayhawks from 195355. From 1962-64, Dineen’s — Free State granddad, Ron Oelschlager, football coach played running back and deBob Lisher on fensive back for KU.

The two Firebirds also have a common link to the past — both their grandfathers played at Kansas University. days) put their grandfathers in select company. “Once I got older,” Kyle said, “I realized that it was pretty cool that he did.” John died of cancer in 2009, but his son Scott said before that John never

thought about pushing Kyle to follow in his footsteps. Once Kyle got involved in football, though, John loved keeping up with his grandson’s games, either watching them in person or seeing them on video.

“I think Dad took a lot of pride,” Scott said, “in watching him grow up and handle himself as far as being a quarterback.” Oelschlager has watched Dineen play football since he was very young, but admit-

ted it would be a fib for him to say he could see football in his grandson’s future from the beginning. “About his fifth- or sixthgrade year, he started making some plays,” Oelschlager said. “He was playing quarterback and all of the sudden you’re standing there and saying, ‘You know what? He can throw the ball a little bit.’ And he had some pretty good speed.” Dineen learned a lot of football intangibles from his grandfather — “You’ve gotta be tough, you’ve gotta be persistent, you’ve gotta stay at it,” he shared. While both are known for their speed (Oelschlager often tells Dineen he was faster), the grandfather claims his genes weren’t passed down to Dineen. “Heck, I’m 5-10 and he’s 6-2,” Oelschlager said, adding that Dineen’s mother, Jodi, who played volleyball at KU, probably had more of an impact in that regard.

A rep for the VH1 reality star confirmed reports that Lozada filed for divorce Tuesday. “Given the recent events that have taken place, Evelyn has decided to file for divorce and move on with her life,� Lozada’s lawyer, Michael B. Gilden, told the TV show “The Insider� in a statement.

Johnson released his own statement — the first since his arrest — on his official website, OCNN, and reaffirmed his love for Lozada. “I am going to let the legal process run its course. I wish Evelyn nothing but the best, I have no negative words to say about her, the only thing I can say is I love her very much,� said Johnson, who was dumped by the Miami Dolphins a day after the arrest. “I will continue to be positive and stay training hard for

another opportunity in the NFL. I appreciate all my fans and supporters and if I have disappointed you in any way, you have my sincerest apologies. Once again I will continue to stay positive and appreciate all the support during this tough period in my life.� The marriage imploded Saturday after an argument between the two ended with Lozada being treated at a hospital for lacerations to her head. According to Davie, Fla., police, Lozada found a receipt for

condoms and confronted Johnson about it at dinner. The argument continued during their drive home, and when they arrived at their driveway, he allegedly head-butted her. In a 911 call released by authorities, a neighbor told police that there was an incident involving a “high-profile person� and is heard telling Lozada to wipe the blood from her head. Lozada is heard saying that Johnson head-butted her, and the caller says Lozada will probably need stitches.

LONDON — With apologies to Olympic purists, that tacky and nationalistic medal count really is worth taking a look at. It may get too much attention in a jingoistic, we’re No. 1 sense, but it still matters. It matters because of the stories it tells about the state of the world’s competitive balance in sports and, by extension, the state of the world itself. The United States finished the London Games on top of the medal standings, with 46 gold medals, 29 silver, and 29 bronze. The total of 104 was 17 more than second-place China’s 87. China won 38 gold medals, eight fewer than the United States. That is a little bit of an upset. A lot of people who pay close attention to this stuff thought China would continue its rise as a power — in sports and in everything else — with a firstplace finish. And that’s how it looked for the first 10 days of the Games. But the Americans surged ahead with a big week in team sports and track and field. For decades, Team USA’s deepest rivalry was with the Soviet Union. Now it’s China. There is a pretty clear and obvious parallel between what’s going on in politics and economics and world events and what’s happening on the track, in the pool, and at the arenas. There is precious little actual rivalry between American and Chinese athletes. It is as if the two superpowers are compiling their medals in two separate Olympics. The Venn diagram would show China racking up medals in badminton (8), diving (10), table tennis (6), and weightlifting (7). The United States amassed a bunch in track and field (29), swimming (31), and tennis (4). There is an overlap with direct competition in gymnastics and shooting and, to a lesser degree, swimming. China won more medals (10) in the pool than in any other discipline, but the United States won three times as many. Follow the bouncing shot put, though, and you see what’s at work here. Simply put, the United States is being rewarded at the Olympics for being ahead of many nations on the fundamental issue of gender equity. That doesn’t mean we’re there, but in sports, at least, women earn the same gold medals as men. They’re just earning more of them. Female athletes won 29 of those 46 gold medals. The women’s soccer team won a gold medal; its male equivalent failed to qualify for the Games. Women won gold medals in judo and water polo and boxing. Men were shut out in all those sports. “We believe strongly that Title IX had a lot to do with it,� Scott Blackmun, the CEO of the U.S. Olympic Committee said. “If you look at the U.S. medal performance over the last 10 to 20 years, a lot of the success that we’ve had in comparison to other nations is from our women. Title IX gave us a head start.�

LSU COACH LES MILES TALKS WITH CORNERBACK TYRANN MATHIEU (7) during a 2011 game against Georgia in Atlanta.

LSU’s Miles won’t rule out Mathieu for 2013 BATON ROUGE, LA. — LSU coach Les Miles on Tuesday declined to close the door completely on the possibility, however remote, of Tyrann Mathieu playing football for the Tigers in 2013. “Tyrann can be a student at LSU,� Miles said after practice, adding that he is “not in any way speculating� about whether Mathieu could conceivably play for the Tigers again. “He will not be on this football team this year — I guarantee that’s a fact. So I have no idea beyond that.� Miles indicated he was ready to put his emphasis back on preparing the Tigers for the upcoming season. He stressed that it was time to be concerned about getting the Tigers ready for the season-opener against North Texas on Sept. 1. However, questions kept coming about the dismissal of Mathieu, an All-America cornerback and 2011 Heisman Trophy finalist. “I certainly am rooting for Tyrann and whatever his future is. But I’m not focused on that,� Miles said. “I’ve got games to play and I’ve got 104 guys I have to be ready for. I know that this is a very key time in his life and I hope the decisions that he makes are in his best interest for the long-term. So we’ll help in any way we can.� Mathieu was dismissed from the LSU team last Friday for what reportedly was the latest of several failed drug tests. At that time, LSU athletic director Joe Alleva said that Mathieu lost his scholarship and was not expected to remain enrolled in school. Miles also said last Friday that he could not foresee Mathieu choosing to pay to remain at LSU this academic year and not play football when scholarships were awaiting him at other schools. If Mathieu joined a program at the FCS level, the second tier of Division I, he could play this season before becoming eligible for the 2013 NFL draft. Mathieu already has visited McNeese State, an FCS school in Lake Charles, La., and is expected to make a decision by today. Mathieu also has the option of sitting out this season and transferring to another FBS school. But under NCAA rules, LSU will retain the right to refuse to grant Mathieu’s release if the coaching staff or administration does not approve of his choice.


Urlacher has knee surgery BOURBONNAIS, ILL. — Chicago Bears linebacker Brian Urlacher has undergone arthroscopic surgery on his left knee and still hopes to be ready for the season opener. The Bears said that Urlacher had an arthroscopic procedure on Tuesday morning to help relieve swelling in the knee and was back at training camp by 10 a.m. He missed the offseason training program after spraining the medial collateral ligament and partially spraining the posterior cruciate ligament in the final game last season against Minnesota. “The treatment that we were giving Brian, he didn’t respond as well as we wanted it to,� coach Lovie Smith said after Tuesday’s practice. “So we had it scoped this morning, a minor scope on his knee. Everything came out the way that we wanted it to.�

Saints owner, Goodell meet METAIRIE, LA. — New Orleans Saints owner Tom Benson met Tuesday with NFL commissioner Roger Goodell in New York to discuss matters concerning both the team and the league. The meeting came amid a backdrop of lawsuits filed by current and former Saints players who’ve challenged the findings of the NFL’s bounty investigation. Benson also has hired the firm of former FBI director Louis Freeh to investigate the accuracy of the league’s bounty probe.


Meeting surprises Valentine BALTIMORE — Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine expressed surprise over a report that several Boston players met with team owner John Henry and team president Larry Lucchino last month to complain about the manager’s handling of the team. According to Yahoo! Sports, Adrian Gonzalez and Dustin Pedroia were “the most vocal� at a July 27 meeting in New York. Asked about the meeting, Valentine said Tuesday, “I’m glad July is over because they are still playing for me. I don’t know what issues they might be referring to. Dustin and I talked. That’s a meeting I had. But I don’t know if it was in July.�

Andy Roddick falls in two sets MASON, OHIO — Andy Roddick developed back spasms during his opening match at the Western & Southern Open on Tuesday, setting up a two-set loss that left questions about his health heading into the U.S. Open. Wild card Venus Williams survived a threeset opening match, another encouraging win coming off her Olympic gold medal in doubles with sister Serena. Roddick, who has played through a sore shoulder this summer, developed a new concern as he lost to a player who was in the draw as an injury replacement. He got treatment for his back during the second set of his 7-6 (4), 6-3 loss to France’s Jeremy Chardy, who replaced injured No. 9 seed John Isner. Roddick had won all three of his career matches against Chardy. Williams beat 12th-seeded Maria Kirilenko of Russia, 6-3, 6-7 (5), 6-2, in a match that lasted 2 hours, 23 minutes, serving 11 aces.


Big East names commissioner The Big East has hired CBS executive vice president Mike Aresco to be commissioner of a conference now in rebuilding mode. Aresco has been a vice president in charge of programming for CBS since 1996. He’s handled the network’s contract negotiations with the NCAA for the rights to the men’s basketball tournament. He also negotiated CBS’s 15-year deal with the Southeastern Conference.

Europe behind, KU looks ahead By Gary Bedore

it was a good experience for us. We always want to win, but still it was a good experience for us.” “In the locker room, the players all talked about how this is a learning experience,” noted frosh forward Zach Peters, who averaged 5.0 points and 6.3 boards in 14.5 minutes a game. “We have a lot of guys rotating in and everybody is going to learn. What we talked about is how we are working toward March. It’s not about right now. We’ve still got to stay positive and play harder. We’re going to stay positive on it,” Peters added. Noted senior center Jeff Withey, who averaged 10 points and 8 rebounds while logging 22 minutes a game in three games, said: “We’re going to build off this. It’s only going to get better. It’s going to be a long time before we are all playing great together. It’s going to happen.” The Jayhawks’ next formal team activity will be Boot Camp conditioning near the end of September. Late Night in the Phog will be the official start of practice on Oct. 12 in Allen Fieldhouse. O Frankamp back: Future KU guard Conner Frankamp, a 6-1 senior from Wichita North, says he’s back on the court fully recovered from a left foot fracture that cut short his AAU season in mid-July. Frankamp said via text message he’ll definitely be able to play in the Under Armour Elite game Aug. 25 in Venice Beach, Calif.

O Barber, Williams update: Anthony “Cat” Barber, a 6-foot-2 senior point guard from Hampton (Va.) High, will visit North Carolina State on Sept. 1-3, TheWolfPacker. com reports.’s No. 9-rated player also is considering KU, Louisville and Alabama. No. 41-rated Troy Williams, a 6-6 senior small forward from Oak Hill Academy in Mouth of Wilson, Va., and Barber, are considering attending the same school. KU recently entered the mix for Williams. “We’re about 50/50 on it,” Williams told Zagsblog. com, referring to being a package deal. “We’re going to talk about it more. We’re going to try and either commit and sign in November. If not, we’re going to just wait until the spring.” Of KU, Williams said: “I’ve been keeping in touch with coach (Bill) Self and coach (Joe) Dooley a lot. They’re also recruiting Cat, too, so they’re looking to get us together.” Williams, who will visit Alabama this weekend, also is considering Indiana, South Carolina, Arkansas, Georgetown, Memphis and Ohio State. O Lee to visit UCLA: Marcus Lee, a 6-10 senior forward from Antioch (Calif.) Deer Valley High, will visit UCLA this weekend and Cal-Berkeley on Sept. 1, reports. The country’s No. 33-rated player also has KU, Duke, Kentucky, Louisville and Indiana on his list.

in meetings. He’s a good leader out there on the field with the guys. He’s blended in with our guys real fast. They like him and they really look up to him.” Head coach Charlie Weis said of Williams: “Nothing but the arrow up. He did great in the summer. He did great in his classes. He did great as a leader in the summertime. He gets it. I have nothing but encouraging things to say about Josh at this point.” Opurum and offensive line coach Tim Grunhard both cited Williams for practicing at a “high tempo.” “He’s been a great addition, if not one of the best additions on this team,” said Grunhard,

whose linemen have been charged with keeping Williams out of the backfield during practice. “He’s a guy who has got a lot of different skills. He’s got a lot of different talents that he can use. I’m really looking forward to seeing what he can do when the bullets are flying for real.” KU left tackle Tanner Hawkinson forecasts a better pass rush, based on working against the D-ends in practice. “When you bring a guy in like Josh, he’ll definitely be able to put some pressure on the quarterback and Toben, too,” Hawkinson said. “Toben, I think he’s improved every year. This obviously will be his best year.” Williams has made an impression on guard/tackle Gavin Howard as well. “He’s definitely a strong dude, for sure,” Howard said. “Good bull rusher on his pass rush, quick with his speed moves and real good about keeping his contain out there at the D-end. You can tell he’s defi-

nitely hit the weights and played a few downs.” Asked about KU’s lean pass rush in recent years, Williams said, “I was aware of that and I felt like there was opportunity for me to come in and help out at that spot. I take a lot of pride in that. I’m still taking pride in working that craft, as well as other guys on the Dline. There has been that talk that there hasn’t been great-pass rushing and we want to change that.” In one respect, pass rushers, more than any position, are eager for the season to start because the red shirt that quarterbacks wear in practice gives way to a jersey that looks like everybody else’s. “Coming around that corner and you see the quarterback, you want to hit him, want to try to get that sack-fumble, but you can’t touch him,” Williams said. Not until Sept. 1 at 6 p.m., when Kansas opens the season at Memorial Stadium against South Dakota State.

“Some of it’s gotta be coming from him,” Kyle said. FSHS football coach Bob Lisher thinks coming from a football family helped Dineen and McFarland. “They’re both playmakers,” Lisher said. “It’s like they’ve been around it, they’ve seen it, they know it, they’ve played it for a long time. If they have that heritage in their background, it’s just gonna help make it that much

easier for them to be players.” Both will start as defensive backs for Free State this season, and their coach said both could play quarterback, too. McFarland enters the year as the returning starter, and Lisher said Dineen will be used at different positions, including QB. You won’t hear McFarland complaining. “He’s definitely gonna be a starter next year,” the

senior said of Dineen, “so he’s gonna need reps in games. I mean, he could come in this year and do perfectly fine.” The Firebirds with KU bloodlines, Dineen added, are comparable signalcallers, too. “It’s a lot like last year. We’ll just see how it goes,” Dineen said. “It’s gonna be a fun year. He’s a good quarterback, and I feel like I’m doing pretty good this year, also.”

coaches and support staff members about one-third of the time to return from Europe as it took to get there. The Jayhawks — who flew commercial from Paris to Chicago at 11:30 a.m., (4:30 a.m., Central time) Tuesday, then caught a connecting flight to Kansas City, Mo., at 4 p.m. — touched down at KCI Airport about 5 p.m. That’s total travel time of 12.5 hours. On the way to Switzerland on Sunday, Aug. 5, weather-related problems on the East Coast forced the Jayhawks to miss a connecting flight to Zurich and spend the night in Washington, D.C. The Jayhawks finally made it to Switzerland after being re-routed to Germany at 10 a.m., Swiss time last Tuesday — travel time of about 38 hours. “It went very well,” KU associate athletic director Jim Marchiony said of Tuesday’s return. “Everybody’s a little tired, but it was a great trip.” Chicago freshmen Milt Doyle and Jamari Traylor remained in the Windy City to spend a few days with relatives before start of first-semester classes Monday. Senior Elijah Johnson and sophomore Naadir Tharpe caught flights in Chicago to Las Vegas and Boston, respectively. The Jayhawks, who did a lot of sightseeing on

— Kansas University freshman forward Zach Peters the just-completed trip, opened with two victories against the Swiss National Team before dropping two games to French pro teams. KU coach Bill Self called it an “unbelievable trip. It’s been a lot of fun. Paris is a great place to be. Switzerland was great. We didn’t practice (in Europe after 10 practices in U.S.) so there’s no way we could look good, but still we’re at Kansas, a place that never loses back-to-back games, so that shouldn’t happen either. We’ll take some good things from it. “I think if anything, it tells us how hard we need to work because we’re not very good right now. I’m not sure anybody’s any good in early August, but we’re certainly not. Our veterans need to really step up because there’s no reason why we should have lost back-to-back games,” Self added. Obviously the players had a blast on their European vacation. “Basketball-wise it meant a lot,” said freshman forward Perry Ellis, who averaged 10.3 points and 5.5 rebounds in 14.5 minutes per game over four games. “For a lot of us it was our first time coming overseas. Getting together and bonding ...


Toben Opurum, who had half the team’s Big 12 sacks in 2011, returns and has improved, according to Wyatt. If Opurum can double his sack total and rank second on the team, we’ll know KU’s pass rush has gone from invisible to legitimate. Transfer Josh Williams, who graduated last spring from Nebraska, ranks as the biggest igniter of Wyatt’s confidence. Wyatt has known Williams since the 6-foot-4, 255-pound defensive end played at Denton High in Texas and weighed 215 pounds. Nebraska changed coaches and Wyatt lost his job before he could finish recruiting Williams, but five years later he gets to coach him. “Josh is a pleasant surprise; he really is,” Wyatt said. “He’s a really smart football player. He really picks up things quickly. He asks great questions


Scott, on the other hand, has a different theory on Kyle’s lineage. Scott wrestled and swam in high school, and likes to joke that athleticism skips a generation in the McFarland clan. Considering Kyle (6foot-3) and John (6-4) both ended up playing QB, the grandson agrees.

OAKLAND ATHLETICS SECOND BASEMAN JEMILE WEEKS, LEFT, LOOKS TO MAKE A PLAY after his error on a ball hit by Kansas City Royals’ Alcides Escobar allowed Alex Gordon to advance to third base and Lorenzo Cain to score during the fifth inning on Tuesday at Kauffman Stadium in Kansas City, Mo.

Guthrie leads K.C. to shutout of A’s KANSAS CITY, MO. (AP) — Jeremy Guthrie allowed only three singles in seven innings, and the Kansas City Royals rolled to a 5-0 win over the Oakland Athletics on Tuesday night. Guthrie, who struck out a season-high eight, ran his scoreless streak to 15 innings. He has yielded eight hits and struck out 14 in his past two starts, victories over the A’s and the Chicago White Sox. Guthrie (5-12) is 2-3 in five starts with the Royals, who acquired him in a July 20 trade with Colorado for left-hander Jonathan Sanchez. Tim Collins and Greg Holland completed the shutout for Kansas City. Collins struck out all three batters he faced in the eighth inning, boosting his total to 77 — a Royals’ strikeout record for a lefthanded reliever.


but the mental component is completely different. That’s part of the reason he works so hard. And other than the blur on the screen during film sessions, that’s one of the main things his coaches have noticed. “I feel like he has just been mentally into it,” Cross said. “He’s been prepared, he asks good questions and he plays the game like he really enjoys it.” The first time Heeney met Cross, he stood in his office and told him he wanted to start for him. That conversation has driven him every day since, but it is not the only thing that’s important to Heeney. He also wants his team to succeed, and that’s why he also has become obsessed with the linebacker corps’ quest to create more turnovers in 2012. Throughout the offseason, the linebackers have kept track of the turnovers they’ve forced. During spring ball, they forced none. Through the same number of practices in fall camp, the number is up to nine. “It all starts with the Dline getting some pressure up there,” Heeney said. “All those new guys coming in and the old guys stepping up, that’s really helped us out.” The rest of the credit belongs to the relent-

less effort and contagious work ethic of all of KU’s linebackers. “Even if I get something wrong, I’m always just trying to go hard and fix my mistakes later on,” Heeney said. “If I don’t know what I’m doing, I’ll go hard to the ball and at least try to do something. ... The recognition’s cool and everything, but, whether I get recognized or not, I’m still gonna go hard.”

KU gets OL commitment The second best offensive lineman in Kentucky is coming to Kansas. Tuesday night, reported that Joey Bloomfield, a 6-foot-6, 305-pound tackle from Ballard High, in Louisville, had orally committed to the Jayhawks. The three-star prospect who is rated by as the seventh best player in the Bluegrass state, said his relationship with KU offensive line coach Tim Grunhard was key but added that he loved everything the school had to offer. “I was impressed with the whole aspect, from the people to the facilities and everything in between,” Bloomfield told Jon Kirby. “One thing that stood out is the type of kid they are recruiting and the direction of the program.” Bloomfield chose KU over Colorado, Houston, San Diego State and Wyoming. He becomes the seventh player in the Class of 2013 to commit to Kansas.

Orioles 7, Red Sox 1 BALTIMORE — Mark Reynolds homered twice and drove in four runs, Omar Quintanilla also went deep, and Baltimore beat Josh Beckett and Boston. Wei-Yin Chen (11-7) gave up one run, nine hits and a walk in six-plus innings for the Orioles, who moved 10 games over .500 (63-53) for the first time since June 24. Chen allowed at least one hit in each inning but was effective in minimizing the damage. Beckett (5-10) surrendered six runs and six hits, including two home runs, in 5 1/3 innings.

Tigers 8, Twins 4 MINNEAPOLIS — Miguel Cabrera became the first player to reach 100 RBIs this season with a runscoring single, and Doug Fister pitched eight strong innings for Detroit in a win over Minnesota. Fister (7-7) did not allow an earned run and struck out seven to win for the third time in four starts. The Tigers overcame a bad defensive inning to end a three-game slide. Detroit remains two games back of Chicago in the AL Central. Josh Willingham hit his career-high 30th home run for Minnesota.

Kids’ cholesterol is lower; fewer trans fats cited By Mike Stobbe Associated Press

ATLANTA — Finally some good news about cholesterol and kids: A big government study shows that in the past decade, the proportion of children who have high cholesterol has fallen. The results are surprising, given that the childhood obesity rate didn’t budge. How can that be? Some experts think that while most kids may not be eating less or exercising more, they may be getting fewer trans fats. That’s because the arteryclogging ingredient has been removed or reduced in many processed or fried foods such as doughnuts, cookies and french fries. “That’s my leading theory,” said Dr. Sarah de Ferranti, director of preventive cardiology at Boston Children’s Hospital. She wrote an editorial that accompanies the study. The study did not look at the reasons for the decline, but its lead author, Dr. Brian Kit of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, said the theory makes sense. The research, released online last week by the Journal of the American Medical Association, also showed that children’s average overall cholesterol levels declined slightly. Too much cholesterol in the blood raises the risk of heart disease. It isn’t usually an immediate threat for most children, but those who have the problem often grow into adults with a high risk. Kit and his colleagues drew data from an intensive national study that interviews people and does blood-cholesterol tests. They focused on more than 16,000 children and adolescents over three periods — 1988-94, 19992002 and 2007-10. During the most recent period studied, 1 in 12 children ages 6 through 19 had high cholesterol. That was down from 1 in 9 during each of the earlier periods — roughly a 28 percent decline. The average overall cholesterol level fell from 165 to 160. In children, 200 is considered too high. The study was the first in almost 20 years to show such a decline. Kids’ cholesterol levels also fell between the 1960s and the early 1990s, probably because people were eating less fat.

Other factors The researchers in the latest study detected modest improvements in children’s levels of so-called good cholesterol, which can protect the heart. That may be partly due to declines in teen smoking and childhood exposure to secondhand smoke over the last decade. Studies have found that chemicals in cigarette smoke can lower good cholesterol. The bigger news was what happened with bad cholesterol and triglycerides. They went down by small but significant amounts. Cholesterol levels have been declining in adults, too. The incidence of high cholesterol dropped about 27 percent in the last decade, from about 1 in 5 adults at the beginning of the period to 1 in 7 at the end. But cholesterol-lowering drugs known as statins were a big part of the reason for that decline — millions of adults take them. Children are rarely given statins. Last year, a government-appointed panel urged widespread cholesterol screening for children. It was controversial because of concerns it would lead to more kids being given medicine. Experts say statins should be used in only the worst cases — less than 1 percent. Labeling law Artificial trans fats are known to decrease good

cholesterol and increase bad cholesterol. In 2006, the federal government began requiring that packaged foods list the amount of trans fat per serving, a boon for careful shoppers. Meanwhile, a push to take trans fats out of foods gained momentum. New York City banned artificial trans fats in restaurant food in 2008. California in 2010 became the first state to adopt such a ban. Even Crisco, the goopy shortening that was trans fat incarnate, was reformulated to take it out. “I love the idea that reduced use of hydrogenated trans fats might be responsible” for the new study’s results, Marion Nestle, a New York University professor of nutrition, food studies and public health, said in an email. “If so — and as usual it’s clear that more research is needed — it would mean that public health measures like the trans fat ban in New York City are actually doing enough good to be measurable.”

This is not the first study to suggest a payoff in trans fat policy efforts. The U.S. Department of Agriculture found that from 2005 to 2010, the average trans fat content in bakery items and other foods declined steeply. A small, preliminary CDC study published earlier this year found significant drops in trans fats in white adults between 2000 and 2009. Despite the good news, experts remain worried. Seventeen percent of U.S. children are obese, perhaps because they are still eating lots of carbohydrates and sugar. That, along with little exercise, can lead to diabetes and heart disease. “We may have a small effect in the right direction from lower cholesterol, but I’m worried it will be overwhelmed by the earlier onset of obesity in younger and younger children,” de Ferranti said. “I’m still pretty worried about how many kids are going to wind up patients of adult cardiologists.”

Blueberry dessert omits guilt Child


By Sara Moulton For The Associated Press

Toward the end of every summer, my family and I abandon New York City for my parents’ Massachusetts farmhouse, where the fields out back are lined with blueberry bushes. Some years the crop is tiny. Other years it is so good we are overwhelmed, calling up visions of Lucille Ball wrapping chocolates in the candy factory. That presents the problem of what to do with all those blueberries! So I scrambled to dream up recipes such as this one, which is more about the berries than the crust. And that has an added benefit. Not only does a berry-centric dessert use up a berry abundance, it also produces a healthier dessert. In most pies and baked treats, the bulk of the fat and calories come from the crust or cake involved. Even when sweetened, the fruity filling tends to be pretty healthy. The “cake” in this case is minimal — just three layers of baked phyllo dough cut into squares. Phyllo is a paper-thin flour dough used to make pastries. It is extremely low in fat and even comes in whole-wheat varieties. It’s widely available at most grocers and typically is found in the freezer section near the fruit and pie crusts. As for the berries, I love them raw and cooked, which is why this recipe includes the title fruit in both of those states. I wanted to highlight a raw blueberry’s greatest charms, its deep juiciness

CRISP BLUEBERRY SHORTCAKES are prepared with three layers of baked phyllo dough. and the way it explodes in your mouth. To finish it off, I added lemon and cinnamon, both of which always play so nicely with blueberries. A few recipe notes for you:

You will use only three sheets of phyllo in this recipe. What to do with the remaining sheets? Roll them up, wrap them tightly in plastic, then in foil, and put them back in the freezer for another day.

I used a pizza wheel to cut the phyllo dough. It is the best tool for the job; it won’t pull at and tear the delicate phyllo the way a knife can.

I found that the best way to make sure the sugar is distributed evenly was to put it in my hand and sprinkle it over the dough.

Keep a close eye on the phyllo squares as they bake; they brown up very quickly.

This dessert is scrumptious, but it’s a little messy to eat. Serve it with a knife, fork and spoon.

Crisp Blueberry Shortcakes Start to finish: 30 minutes Servings: 6 1/3 cup plus 1 tablespoon sugar 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon 3 sheets phyllo dough, trimmed to 12-by-16 inches Cooking spray 1 tablespoon cornstarch Pinch table salt 1/3 cup water 2 cups fresh blueberries, divided 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice 1/2 teaspoon grated lemon zest Low-fat vanilla yogurt, to garnish, if desired Heat the oven to 400 F. In a small bowl, combine 1 tablespoon of the sugar with the cinnamon. Lay 1 phyllo sheet flat on a baking sheet, keeping the remaining phyllo sheets covered with plastic wrap and a damp kitchen towel. Spray the phyllo sheet lightly with the cooking spray, then sprinkle it with 1 teaspoon of the cinnamonsugar mixture. Layer a second sheet of phyllo over the first, coat it with cook-

ing spray and sprinkle with another teaspoon of the cinnamon-sugar mixture. Repeat with the final sheet of phyllo. Cut the stacked phyllo into twelve 4-inch squares, leaving them on the baking sheet. Bake until crisp and golden brown, about 8 minutes. Transfer to a rack and let cool. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan stir together the remaining 1/3 cup sugar, the cornstarch and salt. Whisk in the water. Add 1/2 cup of the blueberries and cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until the mixture comes to a full boil, the berries have popped, and the sauce has thickened. Remove from the heat and stir in the lemon juice and zest. In a medium bowl, combine the thickened sauce with the remaining blueberries. To serve, arrange 6 of the phyllo crisps on individual serving plates. Divide the blueberry mixture between them, spooning it over each. Top each with a second crisp. Serve topped with a spoonful of vanilla yogurt, if desired. They also can be sprinkled with powdered sugar or additional cinnamon.

carving). In fact, Child’s remarks about roasting a whole chicken are cemented in my mind. “A well-roasted chicken is the mark of a fine cook,” she wrote in “Julia and Jacques Cooking at Home” (Knopf, $40), a cookbook she coauthored with celebrity chef Jacques Pepin. Another favorite is Child’s advice on preparing the chicken. “I always give my bird a generous butter massage before I put it in the oven. Why? Because I think the chicken likes it — and, more important, I like to give it.” You gotta love it. I’ve also followed Child’s recipe for gravlax — raw salmon cured in sugar, salt and dill. The dish is not a huge undertaking, but delicious and divine. In honor of Child, I’ll probably watch the 2009 movie “Julie and Julia” and salivate over the sole meuniere that Child, played by Meryl Streep, gushes about. Most people I know who have seen the film said they came away hungry and wanting to cook. “Bon appetit!”

bit more at the end. Second, the strength of the ginger can vary widely by the piece. So if you’re looking for a serious hit of ginger, taste it before you add it. The best tool for preparing ginger, which does not need to be peeled, is a wand-style grater, such as a Microplane. These graters quickly reduce ginger root to fine shavings or pulp ideal for cooking. When shopping for fresh ginger, look for firm, tan roots with no signs of mold or shriveling. It can be stored in the refrigerator for several weeks. But I prefer to freeze my fresh ginger. Frozen ginger lasts for months and is easier to grate than fresh.

Most of us think of ginger as the powder in the spice cabinet and use it mostly for baking. In Asia, where ginger originated, it’s more a savory ingredient. That’s because fresh ginger packs tons of warm, pungent, peppery flavor that works so well with meats and vegetables. Though they can be used interchangeably, the flavor of fresh ginger is more pronounced than dried, sporting heavy citrus, even acidic notes. In Asia, fresh ginger is an essential part of numerous classic dishes, including stir-fries, soups, sauces and marinades, as well as Indian curries.

3-step pesto makes meal of grilled chicken By Susan M. Selasky Detroit Free Press

According to Weber’s GrillWatch survey, chicken is the second most popular grilling food — after hamburgers. But I often hear complaints about grilled chicken, mainly breasts, which can easily overcook and turn dry. Chicken breasts are very lean, and any lean cut of poultry or meat will tend to dry out during cooking. The darker meat in chicken drumsticks and thighs has more fat and tends to be more forgiving. So, the first recommendation is to have an instant-read thermometer handy. Chicken should be cooked to an internal temperature of 165 degrees. It also helps to brine or marinate chicken first and to grill it with the skin on. You can always remove the skin after grilling. When you’re ready to grill, prepare a two-zone fire or preheat for cooking over indirect heat, meaning that you will cook the

chicken away from the heat source. Today’s recipe is adapted from Cook’s Country magazine, the sister publication of Cook’s Illustrated magazine. It uses different versions of a pesto — without cheese for the marinade, with cheese for the stuffing and with more olive oil for the serving sauce. It’s a three-step process but takes little time.

Grilled Pesto Chicken Serves: 4 / Preparation time: 30 minutes (plus marinating time) Total time: 1 hour, 10 minutes 2 cups fresh basil leaves 1/2 cup flat-leaf parsley 1/2 cup olive oil, divided 4 garlic cloves, peeled 1 tablespoon lemon juice 1/2 teaspoon salt 1/3 cup Parmesan cheese, grated 2 large, about 1 1/4 pounds, (or 4 small) skin-on, boneless chicken breasts, trimmed of excess fat

One at a time, place the slices on the sheet; press to coat lightly with oil and turn them over. Arrange the slices, oiled side up, in a single layer and sprinkle them with 1/2 teaspoon each of herbes de Provence and salt. Bake for about 15 minutes, until the eggplant slices are soft and somewhat shriveled; allow to cool briefly. Leave the oven on if you will be baking the gratin right away. Meanwhile, trim the ends of the zucchini and cut them lengthwise into slices no more than 1/4-inch thick. Core the tomatoes and cut into slices 1/4-inch thick. Spread out the slices and sprinkle them lightly with 1/2 teaspoon of salt and 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper. To assemble the gratin: Coat a gratin or shallow baking dish with 1 teaspoon of olive oil and sprinkle a teaspoon of the herbes de Provence all over the bottom. Place one or two eggplant slices, lengthwise, against a narrow side of the dish. Arrange a long slice or two of zucchini in front of the eggplant, then place two or three tomato slices in front of the zucchini. Repeat the procedure to fill the pan with alternating rows of eggplant, zucchini and tomatoes. Arrange each new row of slices so the colorful top edges of the previous row are still visible. In a small bowl, mix together the bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese, 1/4 teaspoon black pepper and remaining herbes de Provence. Add a tablespoon of olive oil, then toss and rub it in with your fingers to coat the crumbs but keep them loose. Sprinkle the crumbs evenly over the vegetables and drizzle the rest of the oil over all. Place the dish in the center of the oven and bake for 40 minutes, or until the vegetables are soft, the juices are bubbling and the top is a deep golden brown. If the crumbs need more browning, put the dish under the broiler for a few moments. Serve hot, directly from the baking dish. Cook’s note: After the vegetables are assembled and topped with the crumbs, the gratin can be covered lightly and stored in the refrigerator for several hours. Preheat the oven and drizzle on the last olive oil just before baking.

large casserole dish, salt and pepper liberally, and sprinkle the cumin and chili powder over. Then cover everything with salsa and rotel. Bake for 30 minutes. When the chicken is sufficiently cooled, shred it. Now, you can do this with two forks, or scissors, but if you are me, you toss it all into your KitchenAid mixer bowl and use the paddle attachment to beat the heck out of it on medium speed. Perfect shred, every time. Sometimes I add a bit more salsa at the end, if I think the meat seems dry. You can also use a mix of white and dark meat if you so desire. Usually, I am a fan of dark meat, but somehow for this application I am always drawn to white meat only. It’s just a matter of preference. Do whatever makes your skirt fly up. Don’t forget to use lots of fresh ingredients for taco toppings. While this chicken is the heart and soul of the taco, the toppings are the song the taco really wants to sing. Fresh cilantro, a little red onion, and a little shredded lettuce, and you will forget those drive-thru tacos ever existed. — Read more of Megan Stuke’s Flying Fork blog at

Happy birthday, and bon appetit Celebrated chef Julia Child would have turned 100 today By Susan M. Selasky Detroit Free Press

Today would have been the 100th birthday of Julia Child, the doyenne of the culinary world who died in 2004. You could call her the original top chef — she not only deciphered French cooking techniques, but brought them to us through TV. Child didn’t find her calling until she was in her late 30s and living in Paris. There, she enrolled in the famed Le Cordon Bleu cooking school and later joined a cooking club, where

she met Louisette Bertholle and Simone Beck, Child’s co-authors of the groundbreaking “Mastering the Art of French Cooking” (Knopf, $40). Folks, including me, learned a lot from Child. She had a passion for cooking and good food — and that shows in many recipes. She was also a great teacher who made cooking look easy and explained everything to the very last detail. Child’s famed boeuf bourguignon, for example, covers nearly three pages in “Mastering the Art of French Cooking.”

From her cookbooks, I learned:

 How to make a stunning soufflé, including pinning together a parchment paper collar so it rises properly.

 That when making a beef stew-type dish, like boeuf bourguignon, pat the beef cubes dry with paper towel. This ensures you will get a nice sear. If the meat is too wet, it will steam. Also: Never crowd the beef in the pan.

Dear Annie: I left a relationship of six years when my boyfriend became physically and emotionally abusive. We have two children together. With my children’s well-being as my first priority, I decided to stay in the same town so they could have full access to their dad. Here’s the problem: My ex keeps trying to win me back, and I am not interested. Whenever I see him in order to drop off the kids for visitation, he always asks me to spend some time alone with him.

And if I have my new boyfriend (or anyone) with me when he comes to drop off the kids, he turns around and takes them back to his place. I don’t want him to ruin my new relationship, but I still have to find a way to get my children to my

The August silly season is upon us. The CW debuts “Oh Sit!” (7 p.m.), a new series based on the game musical chairs, a pastime most of us outgrow around fourth grade. Jamie Kennedy (“The Ghost Whisperer”) and Jessi Cruickshank (“MTV Live”) co-host. “Sit” invites a dozen adventureseekers to play the old gradeschool game at a furious pace, accompanied by live music. What other schoolyard antics can we expect if this succeeds? Celebrity double dutch? Hopscotch with the stars? Competitive duck-duck-goose between the Kardashians and the stars of “Jersey Shore”? Perhaps Ralph Lauren could sponsor a reality version of Marco Polo!

Speaking of arrested development, the Travel Channel debuts the new series “Toy Hunter” (9 p.m.). There’s a Bible verse (1 Corinthians 13:11), cited in many wedding ceremonies, that observes, “When I became a man, I put away childish things.” Obviously, St. Paul was never a serious collector or a programmer for reality television. Or a guy who wore a baseball hat backward well into his 40s. But I digress. ‘‘Hunter” shows Hembrough driving up and down the Garden State Parkway in search of childhood keepsakes he can buy and quickly flip. He and most of the collectors he meets are quasi-experts on their artifacts, which are mostly dolls and models licensed from popular entertainment franchises. A remarkable number of them were churned out in plastic factories in New Jersey during the 1950s and ’60s, the Golden Age of Creative Extrusion. The show is either a nostalgic delight or a nerdy paradise, depending on your point of view. We encounter a Cher doll, a set of Colorforms vinyl playthings based on the cast of “Welcome Back, Kotter,” a rideable Aston Martin promotional toy emblazoned with a license plate that reads “007-Up!” and far too many “Star Wars” items.

Tonight’s other highlights

Finalists perform on “So You Think You Can Dance” (7 p.m., Fox).

India’s rat problem on “NOVA” (8 p.m., PBS).

Undercover in the Hamptons on “Royal Pains” (8 p.m., USA).

Dani treats a professional gamer on “Necessary Roughness” (9 p.m., USA).

a mediator. And please keep your new boyfriend out of the picture during pick-up and drop-off times. His presence only makes a difficult situation worse. Dear Annie: I have been friends with “Sarah” for seven years, since we were in high school. After college, we continued to stay in touch, even after I married. Last summer, Sarah got a new boyfriend. Since then, she rarely returns my calls or answers my emails. She often promises to write more next time and asks me to be patient, saying she really wants to see me. I am surprised to find that Sarah has become such a fair-weather friend when I’ve gone out of my way to keep in touch. Recently, Sarah mentioned that she would be in my city and that she’d like to meet up for lunch. After a few days passed, I called to


For Wednesday, Aug. 15: This year you could feel everything intensely — more than you have in a long time. You also might tend to get angry far more easily. If you are single, screen the people you meet and take your time getting to know a potential suitor. If you are attached, the two of you need private time as a couple. 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)  Deal with a personal matter. You easily could be overwhelmed by what is on your plate. Tonight: Let your inner child out. Taurus (April 20-May 20)  Important communication needs to take place in the morning. In the afternoon, you’ll want to concentrate and could close the door if you are at the office. Tonight: Relax. Gemini (May 21-June 20)  Make sure you stay on top of your finances. They could go up and down rather quickly right now. Tonight: Hang out. Cancer (June 21-July 22)  You flourish in the morning. You might even want to take off in the afternoon and do some shopping. Tonight: Indulge a little. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)  You feel empowered by midafternoon, though you might have had several difficult and challenging people to deal with prior to that. Problems and hassles wash over you like water. Tonight: The world is your oyster. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)  Use the daylight hours to the max. Be careful with your anger — it could cause you to overspend

ask whether she was still interested, and she said she’d already come and gone. Is it time to cut off this friendship and explain my reasons? Maybe she’d shape up. Her infrequent emails and texts imply that she still considers me a friend, although apparently only when she feels like it. — Sad Sack Dear Sad: You can tell her why you’re unhappy if you like. But it is not uncommon for some women to be so enthralled by a current beau that they neglect their female friendships. Things may normalize in time, but it will require a lot of patience from you. We suggest you put Sarah on standby status for now. Continue to email and text occasionally in order to keep in touch, but don’t expect more. Either she will come around or the friendship will fade away naturally.

or overindulge right now. Tonight: Not to be found. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)  You could be oversensitive or difficult, even into the afternoon. You might not realize that you are testing your limits. Tonight: Where the action is. Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)  Make an important call in the morning. What you did not count on is a brainstorming session emerging from an obstacle you encounter. Tonight: Could go into the wee hours. Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)  A close friend, loved one or associate demands a lot of your time and attention. Curb an element of frustration that could mount when in a meeting or while dealing with someone whose issues are stopping you from getting to a key call or conversation. Tonight: Tap into your imagination. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)  Others seek you out in the morning. You might have a grumpy response like “I’m busy.” Tonight: Spend quality time with a loved one. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)  Throw yourself into your daily routine, and focus on clearing out as much as possible. By midday, others will seek you out, one after the other. Tonight: Break into more fun. Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)  Your imagination assumes the lead, no matter what you do this morning. Maintain a sense of humor. Tonight: Dinner with a favorite person.
