‘The Varsity House is coming back’

City helps resolve shooting dispute ——

CONSTRUCTION ON A 50-PLUS UNIT APARTMENT COMPLEX continues in the 1000 block of Indiana Street. Also planned for the site, closer to the corner of 11th and Indiana, off camera at left, will be the former Varsity House, which was dismantled to make way for the apartment complex. Once reassembled, the structure will serve as a boarding house next to the new apartment development.

— Dennis Brown, president of the Lawrence Preservation Alliance there doesn’t look like there will be the space, but there will be,” said Lawrence architect Paul Werner. “The Varsity House is coming back.” The future of the Varsity House, an early

1900s home that once served as a boarding house for members of the varsity football team at KU, was a hot topic when the city was considering plans for the new 53-unit apartment building.

The house, while under the ownership of Kansas University, deteriorated. Developers of the apartment complex originally had proposed demolishing the structure. But a deal was struck between the developers, City Hall and the Lawrence Preservation Alliance that the home would be moved to a corner of the property, which would still allow the apartment project to move forward.

KU program would help curb bullying By Andy Hyland

A Kansas University professor hopes to start a new certificate program at KU’s School of Education to help K-12 educators identify and respond to incidents of bullying. Robert Harrington, a professor in the department of psychology and research in education, has taught at KU for 33 years. A paper he presented on the topic to the Irish International Conference on Education in April has been accepted

for publication in the Literacy Education and Computer Education Journal. The Harrington research is based on surveys sent to school districts in Kansas. “You can’t really address bullying unless you can know what it is and you have a policy and a plan in place to deal with it,” he said.

The third way, to report the action, is the only one that really works, he said. A statewide anonymous hotline (1-800-CHILDREN) recently set up by the Kansas Children’s Service League and the Kansas Department of Education is a step in the right direction, he said.

For a dispute that centered on a man shooting a gun, this one ended without much drama. Lawrence city commissioners on Tuesday stepped in to settle a dispute involving city residents who live next to a rural property owner who was frequently conducting target practice with a .22 rifle on his property. A group of about 30 residents who live in the River Bend Court and the Sunchase Drive area in northern Lawrence had petitioned to have the rural home of Alan Cobb, 1742 E. 1350 Road, annexed into the city in order to make firing of a firearm illegal. But commissioners instead received assurances Please see SHOOTING, page 2A

Facebook page concerns parents By Alex Garrison

As the school year kicked off last week, several parents expressed concern about a new Facebook page set up, apparently, to help spread gossip within Lawrence High School. Some concerned members of the public notified the school administration and the Journal-World of “Lawrence HS Halls,” a page that’s anonymously set up to emulate a per-

son with the stated mission “if something is g o i n g on, it’ll SCHOOLS be soon posted on here so you don’t have to waste your time going around trying to find everything out.” It started on Aug. 12 and has 164 friends but, so far, no posts — at least not Please see FACEBOOK, page 2A

Roger died on Monday, Aug. 20, 2012, at Brandon Woods at Alvamar. He was a longtime resident of Lawrence, Kansas, and a Hallmark retiree. Roger was born Dec. 14, 1932, in Waverly, Kansas, and attended school in Waverly. After high school, he went into the U.S. Army and was a Korean War veteran.

Some framing?” Most of the details related to the move and the storage of the house have been under the supervision of Fritzel. An attempt to reach Fritzel for comment was unsuccessful. But Werner said the pieces of the house have been securely stored inside a metal building in Douglas County. Werner said plans call for as much of the original house to be reused as possible, but he said it will require a new roof, siding, windows and other materials that had deteriorated too badly to be saved. As for where the house will go, the project will follow through on the agreement to place the house at the far southeast corner of the site. The house will sit very near the corner of 11th and Indiana streets, Werner said. That portion of the site currently is a concrete pad being used as a construction staging area.

Now that I’ve seen the construction process on that site, I understand why Thomas chose to dismantle and move the house. We would have had to move it at least twice to build the garage.” — Paul Werner, Lawrence architect underground parking garage. The entire site for the apartment building has a 114-space belowground garage beneath it. “Now that I’ve seen the construction process on that site, I understand why Thomas chose to dismantle and move the house,” Werner said. “We would have had to move it at least twice to build the garage.” Once reassembled, the Varsity House will serve as a six-bedroom boarding house. Werner said he doesn’t have a timeline for when the Varsity House will return to the site, but he said the entire project is scheduled to be done by early December. The apartments currently are being leased for the next KU semester. “My understanding is the pre-leasing is going great,” Werner said. “We think it is going to be a really cool project.”



from Cobb that he would stop firing on his property, and that the city would send a letter to the Douglas County Commission asking it to place an abatement on the property making it illegal to shoot there because of its proximity to multiple homes. “I basically have given up my right in order to appease everybody because I’m not trying to start any trouble,” Cobb said. Residents of the neighborhood said they would drop their request for annexation if the County Commission would take formal action to place an order on the property making it clear that target shooting wasn’t allowed. A letter from the Douglas County Sheriff’s office indicated such an abatement could be placed on

the property using a county nuisance ordinance that is on the books. The sheriff’s department notified Cobb of the nuisance law about a week ago, and the department said it appears Cobb has not conducted target practice on the property since then. Neighbors in the area said they just wanted the shooting to stop. “I have no problem with Mr. Cobb shooting a gun,” said John Barnett, a neighbor to the property. “But when I shoot a gun, I shoot it at a range or at a place where there is no one around. We’re not angry; we just want something resolved.” The area where Cobb was shooting targets is a little less than 100 yards away from other residences, according to information from the sheriff’s department. Cobb was using hay bales as a backstop for the makeshift range, and the area also has a tree line that separates the houses.

CITY COMMISSION NOTEBOOK Recreation center debate postponed

City OKs new fund transfer policy

Lawrence city commissioners went into a 45-minute executive session with city attorneys at their Tuesday evening meeting, and then emerged to announce they were delaying plans to debate a proposed recreation center for at least a week. Commissioners announced that they were now scheduled to hear a rezoning request and other issues related to a proposed youth fieldhouse/recreation complex at Sixth Street and the South Lawrence Trafficway at their Sept. 4 meeting. Previously commissioners had planned to hear the recreation center items at their Aug. 28 meeting. Commissioners did not provide any details about what they discussed in the executive session or why they decided to delay the recreation center items.

Commissioners unanimously agreed to a new policy that spells out how the city can transfer funds by city ratepayers into the city’s general operating account. In 2012, the city is scheduled to transfer more than $3 million from its water/sewer, trash and storm water utility funds into the city’s general operating fund. The transfer is meant to account for costs other city departments incur while assisting the various city utilities. The new policy, among other items, allows the city to charge the city utilities an amount that is equal to what they would pay in property taxes if they were a private, forprofit utility. Members of the Lawrence Home Builders Association and the Lawrence

Board of Realtors objected to the policy. Both groups asked the city to do more detailed cost accounting to show how much other city departments are spending on matters related to the utility departments. But commissioners said such an accounting process likely would be complicated and costly in itself. Instead, commissioners indicated they would have the city auditor periodically audit the amount of transfers being made from ratepayer funds to the city’s general fund.

$75,000 for library art project approved Commissioners unanimously agreed to accept proposals for $75,000 worth of public art for the Lawrence Public Library expansion. A city-appointed group is scheduled to review the proposals in early October.

LAWRENCE JOURNAL-WORLD Wednesday, August 22, 2012 3A Grass fire destroys mobile home Grass fires led to the loss of a mobile home in Tonganoxie and roughly 40 acres east of the city Tuesday. Firefighters were called to a fire about 1 p.m. Tuesday in the 19500 block of U.S. Highway 24-40. Stranger Township Fire Chief Mark Billquist said the fire started when someone was mowing grass in the field and the lawn mower blade struck a rock. Billquist said Stranger Township firefighters, with the help of Tonganoxie City and Fairmount Township firefighters, were able to get the fire under control and prevent it from spreading to a nearby home. In Tonganoxie, another grass fire broke out north of U.S. Highway 24-40 near Smiley Road. That fire started from a flicked cigarette butt from the owner of a mobile home, according to the Tonganoxie City Fire Department. The fire destroyed the mobile home and between 5 and 10 acres of grass, reports said. Billquist said it was “incredible” how easily fires are starting this summer. “In my 25 years in fire service, I’ve never seen a summer like this that it’s this dry,” Billquist said.

No decrease seen in state’s meth production cases By Shaun Hittle

Last week, the Crawford County Sheriff’s Office raided a home in the small town of Mulberry, population about 500, arresting two people on suspicion of methamphetamine manufacturing and possession. The raid also resulted in the removal of two children from the home. That’s nothing new in small towns across southeast Kansas, as midway through 2012 authori-

ties continue to report their fair share of meth production, according to statistics from the Kansas Bureau of Investigation. “We’re not seeing a letdown,” said Crawford County Sheriff Sandy Horton, whose county led the state in the first six months of 2012 with 18 meth lab incidents. A February Journal-World feature on meth in southeast Kansas highlighted the growing problem with meth production in the area, mainly the rise in the “onepot” method, which requires less

pseudoephedrine than previous methods. “It just started really exploding,” Horton said of the one-pot method, which has accounted for the majority of his county’s cases this year. Four of the five top counties for meth lab incidents are in the southeast corner of the state, including Cowley, Montgomery and Cherokee counties. Two meth lab incidents were reported in Douglas County in 2011 but none through the first half

of 2012. But in July, a city parks and recreation worker found a mobile meth lab in a cooler near Burroughs Creek Trail. Meth lab incidents in Kansas had declined for years but have risen from 121 in 2009 to 204 in 2011. Through the first six months of 2012, the state had recorded 83 meth lab incidents. But those numbers are preliminary and tend to increase over time as final reports from law enforcement come in.

TOPEKA — A prosecutor publicly scolded Kansas legislators Tuesday for being reckless and uninformed about the state’s open meetings rules but said he only could prove they committed technical violations of the law during private dinners Gov. Sam Brownback hosted at his official residence. Shawnee County District Attorney Chad Taylor said he didn’t have enough evidence to show that Taylor substantial violations of the Kansas Open Meetings Act occurred during the seven gatherings in January at Cedar Crest. Taylor said the dozens of lawmakers interviewed by his office couldn’t remember enough details about the events collectively for him to build a case for further legal action.

— Shawnee County District Attorney Chad Taylor lations are involved. And, he said, gathering a majority of a legislative body in one place isn’t a violation unless they interact and discuss business. The Kansas Open Meetings Act generally prohibits a majority of legislative bodies from discussing government business without public notice or access to the meetings. Taylor acknowledged from the outset of his investigation that Brownback, as an individual, couldn’t violate the law, even though he set up the gatherings. Also, violations are civil, not criminal, matters, and officials who knowingly break the law can be fined up to $500 per incident. Prosecutors also can seek a court order or an agreement spelling out the steps officials will take to avoid future violations, without pursuing fines. But Doug Anstaett, the Press Association’s executive director, said it has become most likely for officials to be told they need to improve their training or procedures and receive an admonition “to go and sin no more” after being warned that they’ve committed technical violations of the open meetings law. Taylor’s office issued such a warning in June to the Topeka Metropolitan Transit Authority for failing to notify news or-


ganizations about a meeting at which it approved a separation agreement with its former chief executive officer. In 2005, Taylor’s predecessor as district attorney said no violations occurred when the Kansas attorney general met privately with small groups of State Board of Education members about issues. “This decision is the kind of hollow victory those of us who fight for open government have come to expect,” Anstaett said. Many of the legislators who were invited to the dinners described them as social gatherings heavy on small talk, and Brownback and his aides repeatedly said they were comfortable that no laws were violated. However, the governor also acknowledged that he called the meetings to discuss his legislative agenda and took some questions. The report from Taylor’s office said Brownback and his staff were aware of the risks of violating the open meetings law and “made some attempts” to avoid them. Brownback spokeswoman Sherriene JonesSontag said, “The district attorney now has confirmed there were no substantive KOMA violations and that the governor and his staff clearly understood KOMA and took the appropriate precautions.” But Taylor’s report said legislators who participated in the events “recklessly danced” close to violating the open meetings law, and the violations that did occur were technical “by the slimmest margin.” During his news conference, he said he was troubled — as someone who has to enforce laws passed by lawmakers — about their collective inability to recall specific details.

Julie Boyle, director of communications for the district, said that there are no anonymous reporting systems in place in the district. If someone believes there may be violence involved within a school, the Kansas Department of Education and the Kansas Highway Patrol run an anonymous tip line at 1-800-626-8203. The KHP’s Salina dispatch center takes calls directed

there and notifies appropriate local law enforcement. All of the schools in the district have confidential reporting systems. These include boxes in which students can leave paper notes and online information submission forms, said Kevin Harrell, division director for student intervention services. A statewide anonymous hotline (1-800-CHILDREN) has also recently been set up by the Kansas Children’s Service League and the Kansas Department of Education.

According to an accident report, Gregory Rankin, 63, was found Friday morning several hours after the motorcycle crash on U.S. Highway 59 south of Oskaloosa. Sheriff’s officers don’t know the exact time of the crash, other than it occurred in the earlymorning hours. Rankin was headed south on the highway in a 1982 Honda motorcycle. He went off the road into the right ditch. Rankin died from his injuries. According to the report, he was not wearing a helmet.



• Ashley C. R. Johnson, 22, of Mission, was brought to the Douglas County Jail on Tuesday on a bench warrant after she was accused of violating terms of her probation in connection with a 2010 Lawrence crime spree. According to an affidavit in the case, Johnson is accused of failing to report to her probation officer, misusing a prescription for hydrocodone and drinking alcohol, all of which are terms of her probation. A probation officer also alleges she had not been reporting for substance abuse treatment. Johnson was sentenced to serve two years on probation last September. She had pleaded no contest to conspiracy to commit robbery and misdemeanor theft in September as prosecutors alleged she drove a vehicle the night of Dec. 28 as two co-defendants committed

robberies in Lawrence. They also accused Johnson of stealing a Lawrence woman’s bank card. District Judge Michael Malone had issued a bench warrant for her arrest in May for the alleged probation violation. • Lawrence police issued 58 citations or arrests last weekend for alcohol-related violations as part of a special patrol in Oread neighborhood and areas near downtown. “These enforcement efforts help set the tone for those new to the community and establish boundaries for accepted and lawful behavior,” said Sgt. Trent McKinley, a Lawrence police spokesman. Eight officers patrolled the area Friday night, and 11 did so Saturday. They focused on alcohol violations and preventing fights, assaults, property crimes and trafficrelated issues. The effort included uniformed officers in marked and unmarked

cars and on foot patrols. Citations were issued for minors possessing alcohol, DUI, consuming alcohol in public, and using fake or false identification. Officers also discovered other violations, including littering, public urination and theft. One man suspected of an alcohol violation was apprehended after running from officers, McKinley said. He said the department plans to conduct similar patrols in the future.

CONDITION UPDATE • Stephanie Alderson, 41, of rural Baldwin City, was listed in fair condition Tuesday at Kansas University Hospital in Kansas City, Kan., a hospital spokesman said. Alderson was transferred there after she was initially taken to Lawrence Memorial Hospital following a wreck last Friday afternoon in Douglas County. The Journal-World does not print accounts of all police reports filed. The newspaper generally reports: • Burglaries, only with a loss of $1,000 or more, unless there are unusual circumstances. To protect victims, we generally don’t identify them by name. • The names and circumstances of people arrested, only after they are charged. • Assaults and batteries, only if major injuries are reported. • Holdups and robberies.

Trial ordered in home burglary case By George Diepenbrock

A Douglas County judge Tuesday ordered a 31-year-old Lawrence man to face a trial for a June 31 aggravated burglary on Northwood Lane in northern Lawrence. District Judge Kay Huff said she wanted to make a decision later today after reviewing her notes more thoroughly about whether to bound over Ronald Kenneth Brooks in connection with a second burglary in the same neighborhood that morning. Huff told prosecutors Tuesday that evidence in the Woodlawn Drive bur-

glary appeared to be the “weaker count” compared with the first burglary. During a preliminary hearing Tuesday, Shawn Brockaway identified Brooks as a man he saw about 4 a.m. in his dining room in his house on Northwood Lane. Brockaway testified that Brooks apologized and said he thought he was in his friend’s house before Brooks shook his hand and walked out the back door. Brockaway then called police. A woman also testified she saw a man standing over her in her bedroom on Woodlawn Drive about two hours later that morning. The suspect ran away,

and she called 911. Lawrence police officers and detectives testified they linked Brooks to the burglaries based on a clothing description he was wearing that morning. An officer saw him walking in the area just after 6 a.m. and later arrested Brooks. Defense attorney Clinton Lee argued there were issues with the alleged victims being able to positively identify Brooks. Brooks claimed he was walking to work at a fast food restaurant that morning when police stopped him near Deerfield School, which is in the area of the two burglaries. Prosecutor

Eve Kemple, an assistant district attorney, said police on Tuesday were still waiting on test results for DNA samples trying to tie Brooks to both burglaries. Huff also ordered Brooks to face a trial on charges of felony obstruction, obstruction for attempting to run from a Lawrence officer that morning, a misdemeanor attempted theft count, and possession of methamphetamine or possession of ecstasy, due to a plastic bag he had in his pocket. His trial is scheduled for November.

BRIEFLY Burglary suspect Federal prosecutors argued Brune was required arrested after chase to register as a sex offender

A Lawrence police officer conducting a burglary investigation Tuesday afternoon arrested a Lawrence man after a foot chase near Kasold Drive and Clinton Parkway. Sgt. Trent McKinley, a police spokesman, said the suspect also had an outstanding municipal court warrant for his arrest, a warrant from the Kansas Department of Corrections, a pending domestic battery charge and two pending misdemeanor theft charges. The officer at 1:20 p.m. was seeking to talk to the man as part of the burglary investigation when the suspect, Geoffry Scott Beers, 37, ran from him. Officers set up a perimeter and eventually found the suspect hiding under a deck a few blocks south of Kasold Drive and Clinton Parkway, McKinley said. Officers also recovered other items the suspect had discarded during the incident, and believed they were stolen property. Beers was taken to the Douglas County Jail.

Sex offender pleads guilty to 2 charges A 32-year-old Douglas County man pleaded guilty Tuesday to failing to register as a sex offender and viewing child pornography, according to federal court records. Gustav Wilhelm Brune pleaded guilty to the two charges, and prosecutors agreed to dismiss a weapons charge at his sentencing in COURTS November. Prosecutors earlier this year accused Brune, of rural Eudora, of viewing a website containing child pornography and possessing firearm ammunition as a convicted felon. He was initially arrested by federal authorities last December as they accused him of failing to register and keep his registration up-todate over a two-year period from 2009 to 2011.

after he was convicted of a federal charge in 2011 of possession of child pornography. Earlier, Brune’s defense attorney had argued that Brune did register with the Douglas County Sheriff’s office in August of 2011 and that he was not in violation of federal registration laws. U.S. District Judge Carlos Murguia is scheduled to sentence Brune on Nov. 26. Initially he faced a maximum of 10 years in prison on each count.

Fire weather watch issued for today The National Weather Service in Topeka has issued a fire weather watch for all of northeast, eastcentral and north-central Kansas for today. The watch is based on expected low relative humidity, high temperatures and gusty winds. These conditions on top of the drought-stricken vegetation in the area mean that fires, once started, would be extremely hard to control, the NWS says. Teri Smith, director of Douglas County emergency management, explained that, although the county is already under a burn ban, residents need to show even more caution during the fire weather watch. “It’s important to understand that even throwing a cigarette out of a window could start a large fire,” she said. Under the burn ban, smoking and grilling materials must be properly disposed of; failure to comply can result in misdemeanor charges. Also banned are:

Building, maintaining or using any open fire or camp fire “except in permanent stoves or fireplaces.”

Burning fields, wild lands or trash.

Court overturns border-crossing pollution rule WASHINGTON (AP) — A divided federal appeals court Tuesday overturned a regulation clamping down on power plant pollution that contributes to unhealthy air in neighboring states. In a 2-1 decision, a panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit said the Environmental Protection Agency’s cross-state air pollution rule exceeded the agency’s statutory authority. The court faulted the EPA for imposing “massive emissions reduction requirements” on upwind states without regard to limits imposed by law. In adopting the regulation a year ago, the EPA sought to reduce downwind pollution from power plants in more than two-dozen states. The rule was scheduled to go into effect in January, but several large power companies and some states sued to stop it. The appeals court agreed last December to suspend the rule pending its review. “Our decision today should not be interpreted as a comment on the wisdom or policy merits of” the EPA rule, wrote Judge Brett Kavanaugh, in a decision joined by Judge Thomas Griffith —

both appointees of Republican President George W. Bush. “It is not our job to set environmental policy. Our limited but important role is to independently ensure that the agency stays within the boundaries Congress has set. EPA did not do so here.” In a dissent, Judge Judith Rogers, an appointee of Democratic President Bill Clinton, said that the court had disregarded “limits Congress placed on its jurisdiction, the plain text of the Clean Air Act, and this court’s settled precedent interpreting the same statutory provisions at issue today. Any one of these obstacles should have given the court pause; none did.” Sulfur dioxide and nitrogen oxide pollution from power plants can be carried long distances and the pollutants react with other substances to form smog and soot, which have been linked to illnesses. The cross-border pollution has prevented many cities from complying with healthbased standards set by law. EPA spokeswoman Alisha Johnson said the agency is reviewing the decision, and will determine what steps to take after the review is complete.

Man arrested in alleged Obama threat FEDERAL WAY, WASH. — Authorities have arrested a Washington state man after he allegedly made emailed threats against President Barack Obama. Secret Service spokesman Brian Leary identified the man as 31-year-old Anton Caluori. He was arrested Tuesday afternoon in suburban Federal Way for investigation of making threats against the president and

assault on a federal officer. Federal Way police spokeswoman Cathy Schrock said a Secret Service agent and a Federal Way officer went to an apartment after the FBI alerted the Secret Service to the threats. Schrock said they found a man who pointed a shotgun at them, and officers disarmed and arrested him. She said no explosives were found in the area.


Akin defies GOP leaders to stay in race By David A. Lieb Associated Press

JEFFERSON CITY, MO. — Rep. Todd Akin defied the nation’s top Republicans Tuesday and forged ahead with his besieged Senate bid, declaring the party was overreacting to his comments that women’s bodies can prevent pregnancies in cases of “legitimate rape” and by insisting he abandon his campaign. Akin pledged to carry on with his quest to unseat Democrat Sen. Claire McCaskill of Missouri. But his bid faced tall obstacles: a lack of money, a lack of party support and no assurance that his apologies would be enough to heal a self-inflicted political wound. “I misspoke one word in one sentence on one day, and all of a sudden, overnight, everybody decides, ‘Well, Akin can’t possibly win,’” he said on a national radio show hosted by former Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee. “Well, I don’t agree with that.” Akin predicted he would bounce back from the political crisis threatening his campaign, including a call from presumptive presidential nominee Mitt Romney to leave the race, and capture a seat that is pivotal to Republican hopes of regaining control of the Senate. “I’m in this race for the long haul, and we’re going to win it,” he told radio host Dana Loesch in St. Louis. If he stays on the ballot, Akin will have to rebuild without any money from the national party and with new misgivings among rank-and-file Republican voters who just two weeks ago propelled him to a comfortable victory in a hotly contested three-way primary. In a potential sign of his

I misspoke one word in one sentence on one day, and all of a sudden, overnight, everybody decides, ‘Well, Akin can’t possibly win.’ Well, I don’t agree with that.” — Missouri Rep. Todd Akin strategy, Akin appealed Tuesday to Christian evangelicals, anti-abortion activists and anti-establishment Republicans. He said he remains the best messenger to highlight respect for life and liberty that he contends are crumbling under the biggovernment policies of President Barack Obama. Akin appealed to that audience directly during his interview with Huckabee, making allusions to the 9/11 terrorist attacks and focusing on the idea

he had only misplaced a single word during a Sunday interview with St. Louis television station KTVI. But Akin has been roundly criticized both for using the words “legitimate rape” and saying a woman’s body has the ability to prevent conception after such an attack. Hours earlier, Akin posted an online video in which he apologized again for his remarks. Campaign spokesman Ryan Hite said the apology was intended

to cover both the reference to “legitimate rape” and Akin’s assertion that rape victims have a natural defense against pregnancy. The video will run as a 30-second ad on TV stations statewide for several days, Hite said. Tuesday was the final day in which Akin could withdraw from the race without a court order. As the 5 p.m. deadline to withdraw neared, Republican leaders intensified their pressure on Akin to exit. Sen. Roy Blunt issued a joint statement Tuesday with all four of Missouri’s living former Republican senators — John Ashcroft, Kit Bond, Jim Talent and John Danforth — saying “it serves the national interest” for Akin to step aside. Pointing to the group, Romney said the congressman should “accept their counsel.”

Notable Americans plan to hit the road this Labor Day weekend despite rising gas prices. Thirty three million people will travel 50 miles or more, a 2.9 percent increase from last year, according to AAA, a federation of auto clubs that sells vacations, insurance and lobby on behalf of car owners. That’s the highest level of travel for Labor Day since the start of the recession in late 2007. A gallon of gas now costs an average of $3.72. That’s up about 40 cents from July 1, although still down 22 cents from the peak reached in early April. Experts say gas could rise to around $3.75 per gallon by the holiday weekend.

Europe’s leaders face post-holiday blues By Barry Hatton Associated Press

After their holidays spent soaking up the August sun, Europe’s political leaders are bracing themselves for storm clouds this fall. The latest economic figures show that Europe is edging closer to recession, dragged down by the crippling debt problems of the 17 countries that use the euro. These debt troubles have tormented the eurozone for close to three years and so far have defied leaders’ efforts to fix them. And the longer they take to resolve, the bigger they get. Leaders from France, Germany and Greece all meet later on this week in the latest round of shuttle diplomacy to attempt to put a lid on the eurozone’s debt crisis. Six eurozone countries — Greece, Spain, Italy, Cyprus, Portugal and Malta — are already in recession and others look feeble. Europe’s stumbling economy is hurting recovery in other parts of the world. The European Union recorded a gross domestic product last year of $15.5 trillion — slightly more than the U.S.’s output. It is also a major source of sales for the world’s leading companies. Any further economic problems would be felt in order books back in the U.S. and China. Forty percent of Mc-

September is going to be extremely busy. The potential for negative news is definitely there.” — Antonio Barroso, an analyst with the Eurasia Group political risk consultancy Donald’s global revenue comes from Europe — more than it generates in the U.S. The company reported a 0.6 percent slump in meals served in Europe last month. Ford Motor Co. warned last week that auto industry sales in the region through July were the lowest in 17 years. The eurozone has already provided billion in loans and financial aid to keep Greece, Ireland and Portugal from defaulting on their debts. And now markets are worried that recession-hit Spain and Italy could soon be asking for assistance. Meanwhile, public anger over austerity measures and unemployment is spreading, and a key court ruling on the eurozone’s crucial new bailout fund is due in Germany. “September is going to be extremely busy,” said Antonio Barroso, an analyst with the Eurasia Group political risk consultancy. “The potential for negative news is definitely there.”

Americans tune out Afghan War as fighting rages on By Deb Riechmann Associated Press

KABUL, AFGHANISTAN — It was once President Barack Obama’s “war of necessity.” Now, it’s America’s forgotten war. The Afghan conflict generates barely a whisper on the U.S. presidential campaign trail. It’s not a hot topic at the office water cooler or in the halls of Congress — even though more than 80,000 American troops are still fighting here and dying at a rate of one a day. Americans show more interest in the economy and taxes than the latest suicide bombings in a different, distant land. They’re more tuned in to the political ad war playing out on television than the deadly fight still raging against the Taliban. Earlier this month, protesters at the Iowa State Fair chanted “Stop the war!” They were referring to one purportedly being waged against the middle class. By the time voters go to the polls Nov. 6 to choose between Obama and presumptive Republican nominee Mitt Romney, the war will be in its 12th

For most Americans, that’s long enough. Public opinion remains largely negative toward the war, with 66 percent opposed to it and just 27 percent in favor in a May AP-GfK poll. More recently, a Quinnipiac University poll found that 60 percent

of registered voters felt the U.S. should no longer be involved in Afghanistan. Just 31 percent said the U.S. is doing the right thing by fighting there now. Not since the Korean War of the early 1950s — a much shorter but more intense fight — has an

armed conflict involving America’s sons and daughters captured so little public attention. “We’re bored with it,” said Matthew Farwell, who served in the U.S. Army for five years including 16 months in eastern Afghanistan, where

he sometimes received letters from grade school students addressed to the brave Marines in Iraq — the wrong war. “We all laugh about how no one really cares,” he said. “All the ‘support the troops’ stuff is bumper sticker deep.” Farwell, 29, who is now studying at the University of Virginia, said the war is rarely a topic of conversation on campus — and he isn’t surprised that it’s not discussed much on the campaign trail. “No one understands how to extricate ourselves from the mess we have made there,” he said. “So from a purely political point of view, I wouldn’t be talking about it if I were Barack Obama or Mitt Romney either.” Ignoring the Afghan War, though, doesn’t make it go away. More than 1,950 Americans have died in Afghanistan and thousands more have been wounded since President George W. Bush launched attacks on Oct. 7, 2001, to rout al-Qaida after it used Afghanistan to train recruits and plot the Sept. 11 attacks that killed nearly 3,000 Americans.

ACT scores steady Romney opening up — a little — about his religion in campaign but show signs of small progress By Rachel Zoll

Associated Press

By Justin Pope Associated Press

Average scores on the ACT exam held steady for the high school class of 2012 but the results show modest progress in the number of students who appear ready for college-level work in math and science. The scores, being released today, cover the first-ever class in which more than half of graduates nationally took the ACT. Traditionally the ACT has been a rival college entrance exam to the SAT, but it is now taken by almost all students in nine states, and by at least 60 percent of graduates in 26 states. The average national composite score was 21.1 (on a scale of 1 to 36), unchanged from the class of 2011. The percentage who earned scores that ACT calculates indicate they’re ready for college in all four subjects — English, reading, math and science — was also unchanged at 25 percent. But the percentage earning scores indicating readiness for college in science has increased from 28 percent to 31 percent since 2009, and in math from 42 percent to 46 percent. Such numbers still aren’t great — 28 percent of ACTtested graduates failed to meet the college readiness benchmark in any of the

four subjects. But the fact that overall scores have held steady even as the test-taking pool widens, and that math and science marks have improved, is considered positive. “There’s just all these countertrends that would typically pull scores down,” said Jon Erickson, education president of ACT, an Iowa City, Iowa-based nonprofit. “To hold scores is a good sign. To see science and math increasing the last five years — not rapidly but positively and steadily — those are two really good signs.” Erickson credited an aggressive push to improve teaching in the so-called “STEM” fields — science, technology, engineering and math — by states such as North Carolina, Ohio, Texas, Tennessee, Massachusetts and Iowa. The scores could also reveal some early fruits of states moving toward the adoption of a common core curriculum. Still, overall readiness scores remain much lower in science and math compared to English and reading. Nationally, just 46 percent of students of the record 1.66 million who took the exam met the national benchmark in math, as did 31 percent in science, compared with 67 percent in English and 52 percent in reading.

NEW YORK — Mitt Romney is starting to open up a bit more about his lifelong commitment to Mormonism and his lay leadership in the church, following pleas from backers who say that talking about his faith could help him overcome his struggles to connect with voters. “Who shares your values?” a recent Romney ad asked — suggesting that the Republican presidential candidate was the answer. “When religious freedom is threatened, who do you want to stand with?” The commercial was the start of a broader Romney effort to emphasize values and religion as he courts undecided voters — in a nation where most people say they want a president with strong religious beliefs — to compete with President Barack Obama in a race that polls show is close. Romney invited reporters to Mormon chapel services with his family last Sunday in New Hampshire. And he has asked a fellow Mormon to give an invocation before he addresses the Republican National Convention next week. Romney is the first Mormon presidential nominee of a major political party, and highlighting his faith carries risks, given that many Americans view Mormonism skeptically. Even so, a small group of supporters and Republicans have long said the benefits

could outweigh the drawbacks. They contend that Romney, whose attempts to reach voters on a personal level often fall flat, could help people get to know him better by highlighting this core part of his life. Michael Gerson, who was a speechwriter for President George W. Bush, wrote that Romney could “inRomney is the ject some authenticfirst Mormon ity — or at presidential least some nominee of a major political personality — into his party. campaign” by talking about his faith. A recent poll by the Pew Research Center found that a majority of people who know that Romney is Mormon are comfortable with his religion or don’t consider it a concern. Philip Barlow, a Mormon historian at Utah State University who worked alongside Romney when he was bishop in Belmont, Mass., said that trying to understand Romney without Mormonism would be like “watching a football game with half the players invisible.” Religion — and specifically his decades of involvement in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latterday Saints — has shaped every aspect of Romney’s life, from his family to his decades in private business and his political career.

The former Massachusetts governor is from a prominent Mormon family, has donated millions to his church and its charities, and has volunteered countless hours to the Mormon community and others.

Syria warns U.S. against intervention MOSCOW — President Barack Obama’s warning over chemical weapons in Syria indicates the West is looking for a pretext for military intervention, a senior Syrian government official said Tuesday following talks in Moscow. Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov, meanwhile, warned the West against circumventing the U.N. Security Council to take action in Syria. Obama said Monday the U.S. would reconsider its opposition to military involvement in Syria if President Bashar Assad’s regime deployed or used chemical or biological weapons. The U.S. president called a turn toward such weapons of mass destruction a “red line” for America. Syrian Deputy Prime Minister Qadri Jamil described Obama’s statements as “propagandistic threats” connected with the U.S. presidential election.

Storms, stings end Cuba-to-Fla. swim KEY WEST, FLA. — Diana Nyad ended her fourth attempt to swim across the Straits of Florida on Tuesday, her decades-old dream thwarted, more than anything else, by jellyfish. Storms brewing around her and repeated jellyfish stings forced her out of the water at 12:55 a.m., her crew said. She traveled by boat close to a rocky shoreline in Key West on Tuesday afternoon, just over 72 hours after setting out from Cuba. She made a final short swim to a waiting crowd. Nyad turns 63 today and, all told, logged 41 hours and 45 minutes of swim time. Her team acknowledged at 8 a.m. that she had to be pulled from the water.

Voting options Recent news about U.S. Rep. Kevin Yoder is unfortunate, but it’s not likely to impact his chances of being re-elected.


howing up as the topic of David Letterman’s Top 10 list usually isn’t a good thing. Unfortunately, that’s where U.S. Rep. Kevin Yoder, R-Kan., found himself Monday night. Becoming the butt of the talk show host’s barbs was just one example of the unwanted attention that rained down on Yoder and Kansas Monday after news broke about Yoder’s decision to swim naked in the Sea of Galilee last August when he was on a official congressional fact-finding mission to Israel. It seems more like the kind of incident that would have been reported when Yoder was the Kansas University student body president than when he was a member of the U.S. Congress. The skinny dipping reportedly lasted about 10 seconds, but the fallout is likely to last considerably longer. Interestingly, though, it is unlikely to seriously endanger Yoder’s chances of being re-elected in the 3rd Congressional District. That’s because voters don’t have a lot of options in that race. Yoder’s sole opponent is Libertarian Joel Balam of Overland Park. There is no Democrat in the race. On Monday, Kansas Democratic Party Chairwoman Joan Wagnon decried Yoder’s behavior as “inexcusable,” and issued a statement calling for him to step down. She also promised that Democrats would field a strong candidate against Yoder in 2014 and would remind voters of the incident. Good luck with that. Yoder’s behavior might or might not have become a significant campaign issue this year, but it is unlikely to resonate with voters two years from now if no new incidents occur. Wagnon acknowledged that it was too bad there was no Democrat in the race this year but added, “it isn’t for lack of trying.” Granted, the last-minute redistricting decision handed down by a panel of federal judges made this an unusually difficult year for party operatives, Republicans and Democrats, to make sure their slates were filled. However, it was unlikely that Johnson County would have been drawn out of the 3rd District, which meant the Democrats had a pretty large population base to mine. Johnson County also is a center of conservative Republican power, which would have been daunting to a potential Democratic challenger, but the news of this week is an important reminder of why it is so important for both parties to field viable candidates in races as important as those for the U.S. House. Even when a candidate looks like a shoo-in, things can change. Both Yoder and 1st District Congressman Tim Huelskamp have no major party opposition this year, which is too bad, because it leads not only to less choice for voters but also to a campaign that may not include a vigorous discussion of key issues facing the nation. Maybe Yoder will be able to get back to some of those issues before the Nov. 6 election, but it will take some time for him and the state to get past the recent unflattering and embarrassing news coverage.

Uruguay ponders marijuana plan Judging from what Uruguay’s President Jose Mujica recently told me in an extended interview, there is a real possibility that people in his country will soon be able to buy marijuana legally from a state-regulated company that will be in charge of marketing and selling the drug. Mujica, 78, earlier this month submitted a bill to congress that may be the boldest marijuana legalization proposal anywhere in the world. It calls for the state to “take over the control and regulation of activities related to the importation, production, acquisition, storage, marketing and distribution of marijuana.” This would go way beyond what countries such as the Netherlands and Portugal have done in recent decades to in effect decriminalize marijuana use. It also dwarfs recent proposals by Guatemalan President Otto Perez Molina — and milder versions by the leaders of Colombia and Mexico — to start an open debate over legalization of drugs. Are you proposing that the state start selling marijuana? I asked Mujica. “It’s a little bit more profound than that,” he answered. “The idea is to take away the market from drug traffickers.” Mujica explained that, nowadays, drug traffickers who sell marijuana in Uruguay often induce young people to consume heavier drugs, such as cocaine paste. That has caused, among other things, a major rise in violent crime in the country.

This would go way beyond what countries such as the Netherlands and Portugal have done in recent decades to in effect decriminalize marijuana use.” “We prefer that this market of bland drugs no longer be used as a gateway for the sale of the so-called harddrugs,” Mujica said. By regulating Uruguay’s estimated $40 million-a-year marijuana business, the state will take it away from drug traffickers and weaken the drug cartels, he said. In addition, the state would be able to keep track of all marijuana consumers in the country and provide treatment to the most serious abusers, much like is being done today with alcoholics, he said. Asked whether under his proposal people would buy marijuana in street cafes or kiosks, Mujica said it will be up to the Uruguayan congress

to decide that. He added that his bill has a “50-50 chance of passing,” but that he is hopeful that a public discussion of it will lead to some variation of it being approved soon. What about the criticism that a state-run marijuana company would become an inefficient bureaucracy, with high chances of becoming corrupted by the drug trade? I asked. Mujica, who until now has refused to reveal whether he supports a state or private firm to run the proposed marijuana enterprise, said that “a private company will sell it” under strict government control, much like what happens today with alcohol sales. In other words, the state would hire a private firm to manage the business. And what about the argument that if this law passes, Uruguay will become a marijuana tourism destination? I asked. “This will be a mechanism for Uruguayans, who will be registered, and who will have a monthly ration” of the drug, he said, adding that foreigners will not qualify to buy marijuana. Wouldn’t lower marijuana prices lead to an increase in consumption, much like happened with alcohol at the end of the U.S. prohibition era in the 1930s? I asked. Mujica responded that it’s a risk worth taking. When the United States lifted its ban on alcohol, “people at first drank a little bit more,

but the fact is that life went on in the United States, and today it’s a pretty prosperous nation, isn’t it?” he said. “What we can’t afford doing is continuing to play the fools, to look the other way” while consumption of harder drugs and drug-related violence continues, Mujica concluded. “We must try other weapons.” My opinion: When I first read Mujica’s proposal to have the state “take over” control of marijuana sales, my first reaction was to fear that Uruguay will create one more inept, state-run bureaucracy filled with government cronies, who will probably end up smoking up the company’s income or — worse — selling harder drugs on the side. But if Mujica’s plan is to subcontract a reputable private firm to run the business under state regulations — much like is done with scotch or beer companies — as he said in the interview, the idea may not be that crazy. Its income may help fund education, prevention and treatment programs for harder drugs. What’s clear is that the four-decade-old U.S.-backed war on drugs is not working, and that it’s producing tens of thousands of dead across the hemisphere, without significant gains in reducing consumption. Experimenting with new weapons to weaken the cartels may be better than doing nothing. — Andres Oppenheimer is a Latin America correspondent for the Miami Herald.


City debt

‘Debate’ format needs work defines a “debate” as: “A formal contest in which the affirmative and negative sides of a proposition are advocated by opposing speakers.” That is not what will take place during three exchanges between President Obama and Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney or the one vice-presidential exchange between Joe Biden and Paul Ryan. The selection of liberal “moderators” for these sessions by the nonpartisan Commission on Presidential Debates is, as Joe Biden might say, a 20th-century model for the 20th century. Has anyone come up with a statement of purpose for these sessions? It seems less about getting information useful to the public and more about showcasing TV anchors and reporters who mostly ask questions through the liberal prism of their own biases, hoping to produce “gaffes” by at least the Republican candidate. “Diversity” is the stated reason for the selection of two female moderators — Candy Crowley of CNN, who said of Romney’s vice-presidential pick, that it “looks a little bit like some sort of ticket death wish.” Question: What is the difference between a male liberal and a female liberal? Answer: There is none. That would also be true for any minority the commission might have selected as mod-

erator, if that person were also a liberal. Debates should not be about gender or racial diversity; they should be about ideological diversity. During the Republican primaries, Newt Gingrich proposed a series of LincolnDouglas-style debates with no moderator, just the two candidates having a conversation about how they would lead the country. But because we live in a television age, which has conditioned us to brief sound bites, that kind of lengthy conversation might cause most eyes to glaze over. Here are some better alternatives. 1) Let the country vote on moderators and any panel members like baseball fans do for the annual AllStar game. Since one of these men for the next four years will be spending our money,

starting or ending wars, and regulating or de-regulating businesses we either did or did not build ourselves, the public has a vested interest in who wins the election. 2) Allow each candidate to pick one panelist to question the other candidate. President Obama might pick Rachel Maddow or someone else from liberal land to question Mitt Romney. Romney might select Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Mark Levin, or someone from Fox News to ask questions of President Obama. Any of these would generate interest and boost ratings. 3) Have the candidates question each other. This has been tried on occasion in various races for other offices, but never consistently in presidential debates. 4) Put a former president on the panel. These men have had the rare experience of being president and know the challenges and unexpected events that often arise during a presidency. 5) Put a “loser” on the panel. Let Ron Paul, Newt Gingrich or Rick Santorum ask questions. Losers in previous Democratic primaries might be selected, too. Hillary Clinton would be fun. The tired “debate” format devised in 1960 for the televised Nixon-Kennedy meeting and made worse in the ‘70s needs serious updating. Everything else has advanced. So should these political face-offs. — Cal Thomas is a columnist for Tribune Media Services.

To the editor: While our national discourse is about nastiness and the federal debt, our city is seemingly going the other way debt-wise. I refer, of course, to the recent library bond issue, the rec center and other expenditures.. Does anyone really believe the future of reading is in hard-cover books? We have unlimited information on the Internet, and have computers, Apples, iPads. telephones, cameras, Blackberries, electronic readers, audio books and, for all I know, blueberries, peaches and bananas available at our fingertips to replace the library. Why are we spending millions of dollars on a new building to add more meeting rooms and computers? Use existing office space, or, instead of renting Borders, buy it, and remodel it for this and other office space the City says it needs. This week we learned of the decision to change garbage pickup, with the main reason seemingly to reduce workers’ compensation costs. We are told that the trucks have the hydraulics necessary. While they do have hydraulics, they are not the ones specifically required to side-load/dump containers as the current recycling collector uses. What will the retrofit or new units cost? If we are going to do this, shouldn’t we also consider doing city-run recycling now? The procedure is the same, and, if our present collector is making a profit, which I must assume he is, wouldn’t the city do so also? And how about our 90 miles of deteriorating roads? H.

KU golf has Rio hopeful in Gautier The excitement that has swept across Kansas University generated by Diamond Dixon’s Olympic gold medal in the 4x400 relay inspires the question who else on campus might participate in the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio De Janeiro? An early prediction: Stan Gautier. Who? If Gautier recaptures the magic he had working for him four years ago, the day soon will arrive when nobody will be asking that question. A native of Paris, France, Gautier Gautier is a sophomore transfer from Arizona State, where he played for Tim Mickelson, Phil’s brother. At the age of 15, he won the French national amateur championship, the same year he won the Under-16 European championship. He was on the European Junior Ryder Cup team. Gautier started attending the Hank Haney Academy in Hilton Head, S.C., at the age of “11 or 12,” making annual trips for lengthy stays at the academy. That’s where he met his swing coach of the last seven years, Josh Nahm, formerly a top instructor of Haney’s. Hired by former long-time Alvamar pro Randy Towner, Nahm now instructs at Firekeeper, the beautiful nature hike of a golf experience in Mayetta, across the street from the Prairie Band Casino. New KU golf coach Jamie Bermel can thank the school’s women’s coach, Erin O’Neil for having Gautier, all 5-feet-9 inches and 132 pounds of him, on his team. O’Neil hired Gautier’s swing coach’s wife, Katy Nahm, to be her assistant. Having the chance to work with his personal swing coach was what motivated Gautier to transfer to KU. “He was probably the No. 1 junior in the world,” Josh Nahm said. “They have a federation so it’s not like here where golf is basically individual. They moved him into the adult federation and had him traveling all over the world at the age of 15, 16 and basically just burned him out.” His mother noticed her son’s passion for his passion had left him, so she decided to have him spend a year at the Hank Haney Academy, where he had spent monthlong stretches a few times a year. Nahm called him the “hardest worker I’ve ever seen.” “I met him seven years ago and I did not like him at all at the beginning,” Gautier said. “I hated him. I had another coach and I liked him and he showed up and

KANSAS UNIVERSITY FRESHMAN WIDE RECEIVER TRE’ PARMALEE LEAPS over teammate Andrew Turzilli during drills with the receivers unit on Tuesday at the practice fields near Memorial Stadium.

Almost every time Kansas University football coach Charlie Weis addresses the media, wide receiver Tre’ Parmalee’s name comes up. There’s a reason for that, Weis said Tuesday during his regular weekly news conference. “He’s just made too many plays,” Weis said. “He’s made ’em in the return game, he’s made ’em at receiver, and he makes ’em every day.” Parmalee, a 5-foot-10, 168-pound freshman from Bishop Miege High in Kansas City, was one of six wide receivers whom Weis singled out Tuesday for positive production in camp. KU’s three seniors — Kale Pick, Daymond Patterson and D.J. Beshears — have been atop the depth chart since spring practice, but there has been some shifting behind them. Of the five other wideouts whose names appeared on KU’s Aug. 1 depth chart, only two were mentioned by Weis on Tuesday — junior Chris Omigie and sophomore Andrew Turzilli. Josh Ford, Christian Matthews and JaCorey Shepherd were the others on KU’s initial depth chart, but it certainly seems possible that their names will not be included on the updated two-deep when it’s released next Tuesday. In fact, Shepherd, a sophomore who was KU’s fourthleading receiver and tied for the team lead with three Please see FOOTBALL, page 4B

As far as Lawrence High athletic director Ron Commons is concerned, tonight will be a dress rehearsal. This evening’s Lawrence High Fall Sports Jamboree will double as a practice for everyone involved — not just players and coaches, but also ticket sellers, public address announcers and anybody else with game night responsibilities. It’s one last chance for LHS to make sure it is ready to put on a big event. “They’re anxious to get their season started,” Commons said of the Lions’ teams. The LHS volleyball program will be the first in action at the jamboree, with its scrimmages running from 4 p.m. to 5:30 in the main gym.

MLB union chief treated for brain tumor NEW YORK (AP) — Michael Weiner, who succeeded Donald Fehr as head of the baseball players’ union three years ago and negotiated a labor deal last fall in a seamless transition, is undergoing treatment for a brain tumor. The union said Tuesday that he began treatments on Monday and that they are expected to last about one month. The

union said it anticipates he will continue to work from its New York office on a daily basis during the treatments. “It’s shocking,� Toronto pitcher Carlos Villaneuva said. “We told him, take care of himself first, which is the most important part of it all. I know he’s going to want to go into the office every day and keep track of everything.

“It’s just the way his brain is wired. He was more concerned about us when we had our discussion about it. There were maybe 100 players on that phone call, and nobody said a word. We were all shocked. But he never buries the lead. He came right out with it.� The 50-year-old Weiner succeeded Fehr in December 2009 to become just the fourth head

of the union since 1966. He is widely liked and respected among players and management, and he has been credited for an improved relationship between sides. “I have great respect and admiration for Michael, with whom we have had a very constructive relationship both professionally and personally,� Commissioner Bud Selig said.

Bowlsby bullish on future of Big 12 AMES, IOWA (AP) — New Big 12 commissioner Bob Bowlsby views the league as healthy and stable, with its 10 members committed to each other. Now he’s trying to get everyone else to see it that way too. Bowlsby said Tuesday that one of the Big 12’s biggest immediate challenges is in changing the minds of those who saw the league brought to the brink of extinction more than once and still look at it as a shaky alliance of disjointed institutions. Bowlsby acknowledged during a visit to Iowa State that even he was Bowlsby skeptical of how dedicated the Big 12’s members were to each other. But Bowlsby said those concerns were alleviated by the leadership of the member institutions, and he left one of the nation’s top athletic director jobs, Stanford, for the Big 12 in May. “The private reality is much more stable and much more strong and much more forward-looking than the public perception is. I think we’re still recovering from some of the tumultuous times over the last two years,� Bowlsby said. “We’re still moving in the direction that we’d like to eventually reside, but I feel very good about the reality of the conference at the present time.� The league still has some work to do to prove its stability. But Bowlsby said the Big 12 is in the “late stages� of solving the final issues with a lucrative new, multi-year TV contract. That, in turn, will allow the member institutions to officially sign a grant of media rights deal that would essentially make their commitment to each other iron-clad. The Big 12 will also take on a new look this fall with the departures of Missouri and Texas A&M to the SEC and the additions of West Virginia and TCU. Bowlsby isn’t anticipating a drop-off after losing the Tigers and Aggies and is confident the league has a chance to end the SEC’s stranglehold on the national championship in football. “I like the dog we have in the fight. I think the top of our league is competitive with any in the country. There’s no doubt about that. We add two good football schools in West Virginia and TCU, and I think our league top to bottom in our major flagship sports are better.� For now, Bowlsby said that although the conference realignment madness that nearly wrecked the Big 12 will always be on the league’s radar, the majority of its presidents are happy with the current 10-team model. Bowlsby said the best way to ensure the league’s long-term stability is to make the Big 12 into a conference so strong no school would ever want to leave. “What we have to do is incentivizing people staying rather than penalize them leaving,� Bowlsby said.

ROGER CLEMENS SHOWS OFF HIS NEW UNIFORM DURING A NEWS CONFERENCE officially announcing his signing with the Sugar Land Skeeters on Tuesday in Sugar Land, Texas. Clemens is expected to start at home Saturday against Bridgeport.

Clemens says return to pitching is just for fun SUGAR LAND, TEXAS — Hours after Roger Clemens agreed to join the Sugar Land Skeeters, he was back on the field playing in an over50 softball league. And the ultra-competitive Clemens, now a half-century old, was quick to point out just how well he did against that group of geezers. “I hit two homers, by the way,� he said. Things will be a bit tougher on Saturday when he is scheduled to start for the independent Atlantic League team at home against Bridgeport. The right-hander agreed to play for the team on Monday and was introduced on Tuesday. Whether this all leads to Clemens pitching in the major leagues — the seven-time Cy Young Award winner played that down, conceding he’s nowhere near big-league pitching shape. “I’m 50 years old. We’re just going to go out and have fun with this and make it fun for the fans,� said Clemens, who has a touch of gray stubble on his chin but still sports a shock of blond highlights in his hair. Some believe his return to the minor leagues is the first step to another comeback in the major leagues, where he last pitched for the New York Yankees in 2007 at age 45. Clemens is set to appear on the Hall of Fame ballot going to voters late this year. If he plays in a major league game this year, his Hall consideration would be pushed back five years.


Cabrera associate banned NEW YORK — Major League Baseball has banned Melky Cabrera associate Juan Nunez from all team clubhouses. MLB executive vice president Rob Manfred notified teams of the action Tuesday in a memorandum to club presidents, chief executive officers and general managers.

Reds prospect set SB record PENSACOLA, FLA. — Cincinnati Reds minor leaguer Billy Hamilton bolted to his record 146th stolen base of the season and kept running Tuesday night, swiping four in the first game of Double-A doubleheader. Hamilton added his 147th steal in the final inning of Pensacola’s 4-2 loss to Montgomery. Hamilton stole 104 in the first half of the season with Class A Bakersfield, then was promoted to the Southern League. Hamilton broke the record for steals by minor league teams affiliated with big league organizations set by Vince Coleman in 1983 with 145 for Macon in the Class A South Atlantic League. The modern major league record was set by Rickey Henderson with 130 in 1982.


Paul undergoes thumb surgery LOS ANGELES — Los Angeles Clippers point guard Chris Paul underwent surgery to repair a torn ligament in his right thumb, an injury that occurred last month before he played for the U.S. in the London Olympics. The team said Paul had the surgery Tuesday and he is expected to be sidelined for eight weeks. That means the All-Star guard wouldn’t resume basketball activities until mid-October.


Mankato coach arrested EAGLE LAKE, MINN. — The head football coach at Minnesota State, Mankato, was arrested Tuesday on suspicion of child pornography, sheriff’s officials said. Todd Hoffner, 46, was in custody on suspicion of using underage people in a sexual performance and possession of child pornography, Blue Earth County Sheriff’s Capt. Rich Murry told the Mankato Free Press. Hoffner had not been formally charged by Tuesday evening, and it was not immediately clear whether he had an attorney. Hoffner was escorted off the football practice field Friday and has been on leave from his coaching position since then, the university said in a statement. Spokesman Dan Benson added that a university investigation is pending. Hoffner is in his fifth year as Minnesota State, Mankato’s head football coach. He led the team to the playoffs in 2008 and 2009, and a share of the Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference title in 2011. He is married and has three children.

Iowa loses two freshmen IOWA CITY, IOWA — Iowa freshmen Barkley Hill and Ruben Lile will redshirt the 2012 season because of injuries. Hawkeyes coach Kirk Ferentz says Hill, a running back, tore the ACL in his left knee during practice on Saturday and will have surgery later this week. Ferentz says that Lile, a freshman defensive back from Detroit, suffered a similar injury to Hill’s without getting into further details.

MINNESOTA RUNNING BACK ADRIAN PETERSON prays with players from both the Vikings and Buffalo Bills after a preseason game Friday in Minneapolis.

Peterson OK with plan ————

Vikings running back likely to sit for preseason EDEN PRAIRIE, MINN. (AP) — The Minnesota Vikings have a better idea about how to finish preparing Adrian Peterson and his surgically repaired left knee for the season. The plan, simply, is more practice. Coach Leslie Frazier revealed Tuesday his change of mind about handing the ball to his recovering standout running back in a preseason game. Frazier originally said he wanted Peterson to experience the full contact of such a setting before the real season begins, but he has backed off. Peterson agreed this time. “My goals are still the game,” Peterson said. “I look forward to being back the first week” of the regular season. That Peterson, a fierce, relentless competitor who has lobbied for more playing time seemingly since the day he was drafted, was satisfied with the decision was as sure a sign as any the Vikings are making a wise move.

“There are no setbacks. That’s not the reason we’re doing it,” Frazier said. “We just feel like more time with him in practice with some of the things that we’re doing and the progression of getting him ready for the season, it’s the right thing to do.” The opener is Sept. 9 against Jacksonville, and Frazier again declined to guarantee that Peterson will be cleared to play that afternoon. But there is little benefit to the team to assure that at this point, unless the goal was to assuage the anxieties of fantasy football league owners. Frazier instead sounded intent on tempering expectations and reiterating the importance of caution, even if the 27-year-old’s participation against the Jaguars has carried almost an air of inevitability throughout his rehabilitation work this summer. “Everything has gone better than can be expected up to this point.

But this is a decision we made. We talked with him about it. And for the first time in our conversations, he kind of seemed like he understood,” Frazier said. “He even used the word ‘patience.’ And I was like, ‘Wow. Finally. It’s clicking.’ He’s on board.” Frazier also said Peterson’s father, Nelson, has encouraged him to listen to the coaches and trainers as the end of the recovery comes closer. And Peterson himself has been perhaps his best adviser. “I’ve been preaching to myself. I’ve been repeating it and trying to brainwash myself, teaching patience, patience, patience,” Peterson said. “Because the last couple weeks I really haven’t been hearing the things I wanted to hear, so I have to be patient. Patient. But I’m understanding it, man, and we’re on the same page.” Peterson had surgery Dec. 30 to fix tears in his anterior cruciate ligament and medial collateral ligament.

Jets tackle Ellis avoids suspension NEW YORK — Jets nose tackle Kenrick Ellis will not be suspended by the NFL after the league completed its review of his legal situation following his guilty plea to misdemeanor assault and battery. Ellis was sentenced to 45 days in a Virginia prison in May after a fight while in college at Hampton University in 2010. By entering an Alford plea, he didn’t admit guilt but acknowledged that prosecutors could prove the case against him. Under an agreement, the 2011 third-round draft pick was granted a split-sentence.

son at least piqued interest in what he could do with the starting offense for the Seahawks. He’s completed 22 of 33 passes for 279 yards, three touchdowns and one interception. Wilson has also run for 92 yards and a touchdown. His passer rating of 110.5 ranks third among all qualifying QBs in the preseason behind Philadelphia rookie Nick Foles and Atlanta starter Matt Ryan. Of course, that’s just the preseason. And Friday against a good Kansas City defense will give the first indication of whether Wil-

son might be able to carry his efforts into the regular season and increase the debate over whether he or Matt Flynn should be the starter for the opener Sept. 9 at Arizona. “We’re going to wait after the game and see what happened and see what it feels like and talk it all out and see everything you can possibly see in analyzing it and move ahead with confidence,” Carroll said. Carroll finally shed a little light on what his plans were for the quarterback competition. He said the original plan was to have Flynn start the preseason opener against Tennessee and then give Wilson the start last Saturday in Denver. But after Flynn’s start against the Titans, the plan changed and Carroll decided he wanted to see the free agent start one more time.

2013 Texas center has KU on short list By Gary Bedore

Karviar Shepherd, a 6-foot-10, 225-pound senior basketball center from Grace Prep High in Arlington, Texas, has narrowed his list of prospective colleges to eight — including Kansas University — reports. S h e p - Shepherd herd, who is ranked No. 34 nationally in the recruiting Class of 2013, lists KU, Texas, TCU, Texas A&M, Oklahoma, SMU, Marquette and LSU. “Kansas is a great school,” Shepherd told “I took a visit to Kansas last summer and it’s a great campus ... my relationship with the coaching staff is good. I know that I’ll get back to Kansas for a visit. I do plan to take some visits and I’ll know more about those visits next week.” Shepherd plays for coach Jazzy Hartwell’s Urban DFW team — traveling team of former KU forward Darrell Arthur. “I’m probably going to try and sign in the fall. For right now that’s the plan;

it could change,” Shepherd told He played well on the AAU circuit this past spring and summer. “I think my offense was a little better. I still have a ways to go with that and my court awareness. I also tried to block more shots and take some pressure off of Jordan (Mickey) because he’s our shot blocker,” Shepherd said. Mickey, a 6-7 senior forward from Grace Prep, also has KU on his long list of schools. He’s ranked No. 51 nationally by O Williams update: Troy Williams, a 6-6 forward from Oak Hill Academy in Mouth of Wilson, Va., is considering KU, Kentucky, North Carolina, Alabama, Louisville, Georgetown, South Carolina, Ohio State, Arkansas and Memphis. reports that UK and Carolina have “not been as active in his recruitment as they once were.” No. 41-ranked Williams recently visited Alabama, which is a major player for his AAU teammate and good buddy, Anthony “Cat” Barber. Barber, a 6-2 point guard from Hampton (Va.) High, who is’s No. 9-rated player, lists KU, Alabama, N.C. State and Louisville.

“The Alabama visit was good,” Williams’ uncle, Boo Williams, told SNY. tv. “They did a good job showing him the campus and showing him all the things he needed to see.” O More recruiting: No. 2-ranked Julius Randle, a 6-9 senior from Prestonwood Christian Academy in Plano, Texas, and former high school teammate of KU’s Zach Peters, visited Oklahoma State last weekend. Currently, KU, Duke, Kentucky and North Carolina appear to be his leaders. ... No. 33-ranked Marcus Lee, a 6-9 power forward from Deer Valley High in Antioch, Calif., visited UCLA unofficially last weekend, reports. Lee will have an in-home visit with KU’s coaches on Oct. 6. He will visit Louisville on Sept. 7, Kentucky on Oct. 12 and Indiana on Oct. 20. He’s also considering Duke. O Goodrich honored: KU senior Angel Goodrich received an award Tuesday from the NCAA for leading women’s college basketball in assists per game during the 2011-12 season (7.4 per game). The Tahlequah, Okla., native broke a KU and Big 12 Conference record in totaling 250 assists.

KANSAS UNIVERSITY RUNNING BACK TAYLOR COX STRETCHES with the offense during practice on Aug. 14 near Memorial Stadium. Cox is currently competing with Brandon Bourbon to back up KU starter Tony Pierson.


There’s a little juggling, but I’d say over 90 percent of CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1B the depth (chart) that touchdowns as a true (the media are) getfreshman in 2011, spent ting next Tuesday is Tuesday’s practice work- already done.” ing as a defensive back. “There’s a lot of candidates,” said Weis when asked to size up his receiving corps. “And some of them have been a bit of a surprise, moving up or moving down.” Beshears, who said he and Patterson had made it a priority to help Parmalee adjust to college football, said Parmalee had surprised a lot of people with both his ability and his consistency. “Coming in as a freshman, people just expect you just to go through the motions,” Beshears said. “But he’s improved every day, he’s making great strides and I think he’s gonna be a good player here.” Beshears said Parmalee’s physical skills were only part of the package. “He’s a pretty smart kid,” Beshears said. “Intelligent. He’s really focused in the meeting rooms and he’s producing on and off the field.” Added Weis: “He’s played himself into contention to legitimately be playing. When I brought him in here, I looked at him in his house and said, ‘Well, there’s a redshirt.’ But you go out there to practice, that’s not the way he’s played. And everyone will tell you the same thing, from the starting quarterback right on through. All he’s done is made plays all the time.”

McKinney still coming The question took a little more than 10 minutes to get to during Tuesday’s news conference — the delay designed to disguise overkill — and the answer was pretty much the same it had been all month. Yes, junior-college transfer Ty McKinney is still coming and, no, Weis does not know when. “We’re in any-day mode,” Weis said. “It could be today. It could be tomorrow.” Originally slated to compete for a starting spot along KU’s defensive line, the 6-3, 310-pound junior’s arrival has been delayed because he has not been able to finish his final junior-college class. According to Weis, McKinney completed all of the course work some time ago, but the school through which McKinney is taking the class has a rule that says the work must be graded before the final exam can be taken. Although frustrating for both the Jayhawks and McKinney, Weis said everyone was keeping a cool head. “The dean of the school has been very helpful in encouraging the professor of the one class that we’re waiting on to finish grading the material so he can take the exam so he can come,” Weis said. The good news, Weis said, is that now that KU has started classes, McKinney would be eligible to jump right into practice without having to go through the acclimatization process required in the summer. In addition, the NCAA offers a grace period for situations such as these. So, as soon as McKinney takes the exam, he will be able to report to campus without having

— Kansas University football coach Charlie Weis to wait for the exam to be graded. Although Weis would love to have the big Dlineman plugging up the middle of his defense, he said football was not the only thing he was concerned about. “We’ve started school,” he said. “We’re in class now. What we can’t do is let one of our young men come in and get behind academically. Forget about football for a second. Let’s let him get settled into his class schedule.”

Depth chart nearly set With just 10 days remaining before the first game of the Weis era, a handful of position battles remain unsettled. But Weis said Tuesday that most had been settled. “There’s a little juggling,” he said. “But I’d say over 90 percent of the depth (chart) that you’re getting next Tuesday is already done.” Asked if the players who had won their battles had been informed, Weis grinned. “No,” he said. “We can’t tell them. Here’s what they know; they know if they’re still fighting, they know how close it is. They’re not blind. They can watch the tape and see who’s playing better than the others and who’s getting more reps because of it.” Of the spots up for grabs, only two were for first-string positions, with Tunde Bakare and Prinz Kande battling at Sam linebacker and Aslam Sterling and Riley Spencer competing for the final starting spot on the offensive line. The rest of the battles were for second-string roles. Among the leaders in those spots were junior running back Taylor Cox, who currently sits just ahead of sophomore Brandon Bourbon and behind starter Tony Pierson, and red-shirt freshman quarterback Michael Cummings, whom, Weis said, had a slight edge of sophomore transfer Turner Baty for the No. 2 QB spot behind Dayne Crist. Spencer returns Speaking of Spencer, the 6-6, 305-pound junior who missed the past two weeks because of a knee injury returned to practice Tuesday. Asked how Spencer’s presence changed the flow, junior Randall Dent said it did not alter things very much. With Spencer sidelined, Sterling and junior Gavin Howard have handled the right tackle spot. When Howard, who is listed as KU’s starting right guard, has been at tackle, Dent has worked with the first team at right guard. When asked Tuesday night if his starting line had been established, Oline coach Tim Grunhard did not spoil the surprise. “That’s a question for (Coach Weis),” Grunhard said. “I think you guys can see what’s going on.” Surprise scholarships Four former walk-ons received the surprise of a lifetime last Saturday,

as long snapper Justin Carnes, defensive lineman Shane Smith, reserve running back Ryan Burton and safety Brandon Hawks all received word that they would be on scholarship for the 2012 season. Weis said the opportunity to award the four scholarships came because KU had not reached its maximum of 85 scholarships. He added, however, that the effort turned in by all four players throughout the offseason made it an easy decision to make. “Justin Carnes is our long snapper, he’s been our long snapper and he and Shane Smith are two guys who play on special teams,” Weis said. “And then Ryan Burton and Brandon Hawks don’t really play too much but they typify what a walk-on should be: A great student, (who) goes and busts (his) butt every day for multiple years. “As the head coach, together with the administration, watching the team’s reaction to those guys, it was pretty good stuff,” Weis said. Weis was not the only one who appreciated the moment. Several Jayhawks said Tuesday that they were thrilled for those four guys, including newcomer Mike Ragone, who has known them for just a few months. “The guys that were chosen, 100 percent they were deserving of it,” Ragone said. “I was just as excited for them as they were for themselves. It was awesome. They work hard every day, they come to work and it’s very, very hard for a walk-on, at the Div. I level, to be a part of the team, and these guys are very deserving.”

Defense progressing Several KU coaches said Tuesday that the defense has made great progress during the past couple of weeks, but only one seemed less than thrilled about it. “It’s been a pain in the butt as the offensive coordinator,” Weis joked. “It’s gotten tougher as the camp’s gone on because they’ve gotten better and better.” Weis followed that comment by quickly changing hats. “As the head coach, that’s a wonderful thing.” With 12 newcomers on KU’s defensive two-deep, Weis said the upgrade in talent has done wonders for a defense that ranked among the worst in college football the past two seasons. But simply upgrading the talent has not accounted for all of the upward movement. “Not only has the competition gotten much, much, much greater on defense,” Weis said. “But the pace of practice has picked up considerably — the tempo which they’re practicing at, because coach (Dave) Campo has been emphasizing running to the ball, showing effort and all that other stuff.” Grunhard, whose offensive linemen are forced to face the defense every day in practice, said he had noticed great improvement, as well. “Just as a group, they have really started to do some great things in practice,” Grunhard said. “They’re coming off the ball, they’re playing physical, they’re playing low, they’re starting to get a little swagger. I really think that group is gonna surprise a lot of people this year.”

Snyder, KSU caution against complacency MANHATTAN (AP) — Kansas State didn’t have much trouble dealing with complacency last season. Just about every week the Wildcats were the underdogs. That won’t be the case after a masterful job by coach Bill Snyder resulted in a season that far exceeded expectations — 10 regularseason wins, a surprising trip to the Cotton Bowl and the emergence of quarterback Collin Klein as a Heisman Trophy candidate. Now, pundits are expecting No. 22 Kansas State to succeed, and for the first time since Snyder returned to the sideline, complacency could become an issue. “The consequences sometimes are pretty astonishing,” Snyder said recently. “It’s kind of a bad habit to get into because it’s a bad habit to break once you have gotten into it. There’s a lot of trouble. As far as on the football field is concerned, we’ve got a lot of examples.” Start with the 2000 season. Kansas State was coming off an 11-3 season capped by a 35-21 victory over Tennessee in the Cotton Bowl. The Wildcats scuffled to six wins the following season. Or look at the 2004 season. The Wildcats were coming off another 11-win season, which included a stunning upset of heavy favorite Oklahoma in the Big 12 title game. They went 4-7 the next year. The case that might resonate most with this group, however, occurred much more recently — last season’s opener against Eastern Kentucky. It’s the kind of game scheduled to provide your team

Last year people really just started tightening down their defense ... because they weren’t as concerned about our passing. Now we’re hoping that with the way (Klein) has improved his passing, it will create a lot more problems for people defensively.” — Kansas State offensive coordinator Dana Dimel with an easy, confidencebuilding win, and it would have turned into a brutal, confidence-sapping loss for Kansas State if not for a 33-yard touchdown pass with 1:33 left in the game. “We called it taking your performance level for granted,” Snyder said, “and we did that, as you recall. It was obvious.” The Wildcats learned from the scare, putting together a season that left most outside observers scratching their heads. But the Wildcats still have room for improvement. Kansas State was outgained by an average of 106.8 yards in Big 12 play, and ranked sixth in the league in pass defense, allowing more than 263 yards through the air. Those are the kinds of numbers that a 10-win team isn’t supposed to yield. The Wildcats probably won’t be outscoring everyone this season, either, but Kansas State does intend to employ a more diverse offense. Last season it was a steady dose of Klein on the ground, with a few pass plays thrown in to keep defenses off balance.

Using a deep stable of running backs should help take the load off Klein, who had more rush attempts than pass attempts last season — and nearly as many yards, 1,141 on the ground to 1,918 through the air. And it should also open up the pass, particularly down the field. “Last year people really just started tightening down their defense, giving us some very unusual looks because they weren’t as concerned about our passing,” co-offensive coordinator Dana Dimel said. “Now we’re hoping that with the way (Klein) has improved his passing, it will create a lot more problems for people defensively.” The Wildcats return more starters this season than any since 2006, but Snyder is quick to warn that nothing should be taken for granted — remember that whole complacency issue? It appears that the veteran team has taken Snyder’s preaching to heart, too. “Just because we finished in some close games doesn’t mean we’re there,” Klein said. “We were a better team at the end of last season than we were at the beginning, a better team at the end of spring than we were at the beginning of spring, and we’ve just got to make sure we’re a better team at the end of camp than we were at the beginning of camp.” Still, the Wildcats know that talk is cheap, and it won’t be until they play Missouri State in their season opener Sept. 1 that people will start to draw conclusions about the team. “We can all talk about it,” Snyder said. “It’s what we do about it that makes a difference.”

Ex-Hutch star Grissom moves end to end for OU NORMAN, OKLA. (AP) — After spending his first two years at Oklahoma trying to chase down quarterbacks and make tackles in the backfield, Geneo Grissom has earned a nickname from defensive tackle C a s e y Walker this year: Traitor. Grissom is making the move from def e n s i v e Grissom end to tight end this season for the fourthranked Sooners, and now spends practices figuring out ways to neutralize his old linemen friends in the run game and get around them to catch passes. When he lines up against Walker, David King, R.J. Washington or one of the other guys he used to attend meetings with and compete against for playing time, there’s no holding back. “It’s all about competition. For me, I was trying to make a name for myself so I could play. On the field, we’re not friends anymore,” said Grissom, who pronounces his first name “jee-no.” “We can be friends in the locker room.”

Grissom is making the most of an opportunity he sensed after spring practice. The Sooners lost seniors Trent Ratterree and James Hanna after last season, and the gaping hole at tight end got even bigger when up-and-coming prospect Austin Haywood decided to transfer. Oklahoma added three tight ends in this year’s recruiting class — Taylor McNamara, Brannon Green and Sam Grant — but still was basically starting over at the position heading into this season. With his work during summer 7-on-7 drills and through the meat of training camp, Grissom has positioned himself to be a potential starter for the season opener Sept. 1 at UTEP. “He is extremely athletic and very explosive, so if we can channel all that in the right ways, he has an opportunity to help us quite a bit,” his position coach, Bruce Kittle, said. Kittle is keeping the competition open and holding out hope that more than one of the new tight ends will turn into contributors for the Sooners this season. Each one has established strengths so far, but he calls Gris-

som the best “hybrid” of the bunch for his ability in the run and pass game. “I love catching the ball. I mean, who doesn’t like to score touchdowns?” Grissom said. The run blocking has been the toughest to grasp so far, he said. “I’m still learning and I’ve got a lot to learn. I’m trying to get better,” Grissom said. “I’m trying to perfect my craft.” At times, Grissom earned high praise for his development at a young age at defensive end. But his career so far has been sidetracked by injuries, as he has suffered stress fractures in both feet. He’s had surgery and is healthy now, hoping for the best. Grissom played tight end sparingly at Hutchinson High School, and he remembers drawing a pass interference penalty on one play when he was too rough going up against a defender. But he was a fan of former NFL-bound Oklahoma tight end Jermaine Gresham even then. After spring ball was finished, he talked to his father about the opportunity he saw at tight end and the possibility of making a switch. Eventually, he convinced his dad it was a good idea and decided to approach coach Bob Stoops about it.

BIG 12 BRIEFLY QB Jantz to start for Iowa State AMES, IOWA — Iowa State senior quarterback Steele Jantz will open the season as the Cyclones starter. Coach Paul Rhoads announced Tuesday that Jantz will start for Iowa State against Tulsa on Sept. 1, ending the competition between Jantz and sophomore Jared Barnett. Jantz started seven games for Iowa State in

2011, but he was pulled in favor of Barnett after a foot injury and increasing ineffectiveness. Barnett led the Cyclones past then-No. 2 Oklahoma State in late November, but he struggled in a 27-13 loss to Rutgers in the Pinstripe Bowl. Jantz threw 10 touchdown passes and was picked off 11 times last season. Still, Rhoads says Jantz’s skill set is ideal for Iowa State’s spread offense.

Texas Tech LB thrown off team LUBBOCK, TEXAS — Texas Tech has dismissed linebacker Daniel Cobb from the team after he was arrested and charged with felony burglary. Red Raiders spokesman Blayne Beal said Tuesday that Cobb was dismissed for violating unspecified team rules. Cobb started seven games last season.

Scherzer propels Tigers filling in for the injured Alejandro De Aza. It was Youkilis’ second grand slam this season at U.S. Cellular Field.

The Associated Press

Tigers 5, Blue Jays 3 DETROIT — Max Scherzer struck out eight in seven impressive innings, and Detroit took advantage of Ricky Romero’s wildness in a victory over Toronto on Tuesday night. Romero (8-11) lost his 10th straight decision, allowing five runs, seven hits and eight walks in 5 1/3 innings. He didn’t strike out a batter. Austin Jackson had three hits, and Scherzer (13-6) was sharp for the Tigers. Scherzer allowed five hits, including Edwin Encarnacion’s solo homer. He walked two. Detroit needed three relievers to get through the eighth, when the Blue Jays scored two runs. Jose Valverde then pitched the ninth for his 24th save in 28 chances. Valverde allowed two baserunners but eventually struck out Encarnacion to end it. Romero walked six in the first two innings. Toronto

Nats’ Strasburg wins 15th The Associated Press

Nationals 4, Braves 1 WASHINGTON — Stephen Strasburg struck out 10 batters and allowed one run in six innings for his 15th win in one of his final starts of the season as Washington beat Atlanta on Tuesday night. For weeks, the impending shutdown of Strasburg has been the talk of baseball and though the Nationals haven’t said exactly what their limit for the star right-hander is, it’s thought to be between 160 and 180 innings. After this start, his fourth straight win, when he allowed four hits and walked one, he has thrown 145 1/3 innings. Talk of his innings limit overshadowed discussion of the NL East race. Washington’s win gave the Nationals a seven-game lead over second-place Atlanta, their largest of the season. The Braves have lost four straight. Strasburg weathered a 51-minute rain delay in the third inning. He struck out Michael Bourn to begin the game and struck out two in the second. After he struck out Atlanta starter Paul Maholm and Bourn flied to left, the rain came. When the game resumed, Strasburg (15-5) caught Prado looking to end the third inning. Strasburg struck out two more in the fourth, and in the fifth, fanned Juan Francisco, Paul Janish and Maholm to give him 10. It was the fifth time this season Strasburg had struck out 10 or more. His career high is 14, which came in his debut on June 8, 2010.

Rockies 6, Mets 2 NEW YORK — Jhoulys Chacin made an impressive return from an extended absence, and Colorado defeated New York Mets 6-2 Tuesday night. Chacin had not pitched in the majors since May 1 because of inflammation in his right shoulder. He came off the disabled list earlier in the day and held the Mets to one run and four hits in six innings, ending his sevengame losing streak that began last September.

Don’t wait for fall to reap benefits of early apple crop By Sara Shepherd

Apples may be early this year, but there’s no reason to rush these fall favorites into their signature cool-weather dishes quite yet. Better to make the most of summertime food before summer slips away. We sifted through typical apple recipes featuring cranberries, fall squash or winter spices to find these fit-for-summer ideas. Chilled desserts and bright ingredients — think lime juice, lemon grass, fresh basil and other seasonal produce — help bring apples out of autumn and into the light lunches, cookouts and 90-degree days of August.

Ham, Brie and Apple Triple-Decker Sandwich This satisfying sandwich has creamy, crispy, savory and sweet in every bite. Servings: 1 Brie cheese, sliced Tart apple, sliced 3 slices pumpernickel bread Ham, thinly sliced Fruit chutney (such as mango) Layer cheese and apple onto one slice toasted bread. Top with another toasted slice, then ham. Spread chutney on a third toasted slice and place on top. — Recipe from

Chicken Salad with Apple and Basil Lime juice, mint and roasted peanuts give an Asian twist to this fresh no-mayonnaise chicken and apple salad. Start to finish: 25 minutes (20 active) Servings: 4 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts 4 teaspoons kosher salt 1 teaspoon black pepper 1/4 cup fresh lime juice (from 2 to 3 limes) 1 tablespoon white wine or rice vinegar 2 tablespoons light brown sugar 4 scallions (white and light green parts), thinly sliced 2 Granny Smith apples (peeled, if desired), diced 1/3 cup roasted peanuts, roughly chopped 2 tablespoons thinly sliced fresh mint 1/2 cup thinly sliced fresh basil Rinse the chicken and pat it dry with paper towels. Pound it to an even thinness. Place the chicken in a large saucepan and add enough water to cover by 1/2 inch. Add 3 teaspoons of the salt and 1/2 teaspoon of the pepper and bring to a gentle simmer. Cook until no trace of pink remains, 8 to 10 minutes. Transfer the chicken to a bowl of ice water for 5 minutes. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine the lime juice, vinegar and sugar, stirring until the sugar dissolves. Add the scallions and apples and toss. Drain the chicken and pat it dry. Dice the chicken and add it to the apple mixture along with the peanuts, mint, basil and the remaining salt and pepper. Toss and divide among individual plates.

TART APPLES ARE THE BEST CHOICE for this Ham, Brie and Apple Triple-Decker Sandwich, which combines creamy, crispy, savory and sweet in every bite. peeled and cut into julienne strips, stems discarded and the leaves reserved for another use 1 Granny Smith apple In a bowl, whisk the cream until it holds soft peaks and whisk in the lemon juice, the mustard, the parsley, the sugar and salt and pepper to taste. Stir in the kohlrabi strips and the apple, peeled, cored and diced, and combine the salad well. — Recipe from October 1992 issue of Gourmet, as listed at

Asian Apple Marinade A bright, summery marinade for beef — save the red wine, Worcestershire sauce and whole peppercorns for winter. Find lemon grass at Asian markets. Servings: Makes enough for 2 to 3 pounds of beef 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil 1 Granny Smith apple, cored and cubed 1/4 cup chopped lemon grass (from 3 stalks) 3 garlic cloves, minced 1 piece (1 inch) fresh ginger, sliced 1 fresh red finger chile, thinly sliced 3 whole star anise 1/2 cup water 1/4 cup tamari or regular soy sauce 3 tablespoons apple juice 1 tablespoon unseasoned rice-wine vinegar 1 tablespoon light-brown sugar Heat oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add apple, lemon grass, garlic, ginger, chile and star anise. Cook, stirring, for 5 minutes. Add the remaining ingredients, and bring to a simmer. Remove from heat, and let cool for 5 minutes. This marinade works best with skirt, flank, or hanger steaks. Marinate the skirt for 4 hours, the flank and hanger overnight, and then grill over medium-high heat to desired doneness.

Start to finish: 3 1/2 to 4 1/2 hours (30 minutes active) Servings: 8 1 cup water 2 cups sugar Juice of 3 limes 5 Granny Smith apples, about 2 pounds, peeled, cored and cut into medium dice 1/2 cup apple liqueur, such as Apple Pucker In a large pot over medium heat, combine the water and sugar. Cook and stir until the sugar has dissolved and the syrup looks clear, about 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and cool the syrup by pouring it into a bowl and putting it in the refrigerator or in an ice bath. Put the lime juice into a large bowl. Add the apples to the lime juice, and toss as you go so they don’t turn brown. Put the apples and lime juice, sugar syrup, and apple liqueur in a blender; puree until completely smooth. Pour the apple mixture into a shallow baking pan and freeze for one hour. Using a fork or a couple of chopsticks, break up all the ice crystals on the bottom and sides of the pan. This incorporates air so the final product literally melts in your mouth. Freeze for 3 to 4 hours, until the mixture has reached a frozen granular consistency. You can serve it two ways: Either rake the granita with the tines of a fork for a snow cone-like product or run an ice cream scoop down the length for a smooth Italianice-like result. Spoon it into wine or martini glasses. — Recipe from tylerflorence. com.

Gather up the dough and do this once or twice more, just until it comes together and you can see streaks of butter throughout. Divide the dough in half and form into two loose balls. Wrap them in plastic wrap and press down to flatten the dough into two 1/2-inch thick disks. Refrigerate for a couple of hours or overnight, until well chilled. Preheat the over to 400 F. Remove dough from the refrigerator and allow to sit at room temperature for 10 to 15 minutes. Combine all filling ingredients in a bowl and let sit while you roll out your pie crust. Using a rolling pin on a lightly floured surface, roll each disk to 1/8-inch thickness. Line a 9-inch

pie tin with one round of dough, add the filling and cover with the other round of dough. Crimp the edges with a fork or pinch them with your fingers to seal, removing any excess dough. Cut about five vents around the top of the pie to allow the steam to escape. Bake the pie in the lower third of the oven for 30 minutes. Then reduce the oven temperature to 350F, slip a baking sheet under the pie to catch any bubbling juices, and bake for another 30 to 45 minutes. The pie crust should be nice and browned, and the juices should be bubbling through the vents. Pull the pie out and let it cool before cutting. — Recipe from Andrea Reusing’s “Cooking in the Moment,” Clarkson Potter/Publishers, 2011, as listed at

Town Talk Restaurant Roundup ————

Word on the street from the past week of our city reporter’s blog Lawrence soon will get its first drive-thru Starbucks. As we reported in January, Starbucks reached a deal to build its first Lawrence drive-thru store at the northwest corner of Sixth Street and Champion Lane, which is just west of the new Burger King. Well, construction work finally has started on the project. Dirt is being moved at the corner. A representative with the development group told me the building is scheduled to be completed in December, which means Starbucks could be up and operating by late 2012 or early 2013. Starbucks will be the anchor of a 4,600-squarefoot retail building that will have room for two other retailers. Bill Fleming, a representative for the development group, said tenants for the other

Cooks warming to garam masala By J.M. Hirsch AP Food Editor

First lesson of Indian cooking — not all brown powders are curry powder. Second lesson — don’t confuse heat and warmth. Especially in Indian cuisine, they are wildly different concepts. Third lesson — Indian cooking is a deliciously inexact science. Embrace its freewheeling approach and all of your cooking, Indian and otherwise, will be better. And all of that is why I want to introduce you to garam masala, a widely available, yet little used (in the U.S.) seasoning blend from northern India. Like so many Indian spice blends, there is no set recipe for garam masala. The ingredients can vary tremendously by region and cook. But in general, it usually contains a mix of spices that are at once sweet and warming — coriander, cardamom, cinnamon, cloves, cumin and black pepper. By warming, I mean the flavor has a fullness without acidity or sharp flavors. Think spice cookies and gingerbread minus the sugar. This is different than the spicy heat we associate with chili peppers. That’s a flavor profile not common to American cooking, but the wonders it works on roasted meats and vegetables make it worth changing that. Garam masala differs from many spice blends in that the whole spices are toasted before being ground together. Why do you care? Most spice blends, especially from India, are intended to be heated before use

ERNEST AND CLARA RICHARDSON started an apple orchard in the early 1990s and it’s grown into a busy hobby. This year their trees have yielded a bumper crop.


City, Kan., called this year the worst he’s experienced in his 40 years at Turner’s Orchard. Without expensive irrigation, blossoms withered and dropped off. Many apples that did make it burned in the intense sun. Turner has been selling the apples he has at his home and at a swap meet in Kansas City, Kan. “This has just been a mixed-up year,” he said. “We have to take what we’ve got and be happy we’ve got it.” Mother Nature — with help from a conscientious watering effort — looked more favorably upon Richardson, who lives in Lawrence and has an orchard northeast of town. His early crop was strong — “It’s by far the biggest I’ve ever had,” he said — and he expects the same from later varieties. Richardson said he doesn’t have an irrigation system but he started watering early and did so

regularly. “It was hot out there,” he said. While overall quality hasn’t been as high as it usually is later in the season, the quantity of early apples has been almost too much for the Lawrence Farmers’ Market to handle, said market coordinator Pam Bramlett. “We’re seeing apples a lot earlier than we expected, it’s given us a really full market right now,” she said, explaining it’s atypical to have so many apple vendors overlapping the usual late-summer produce vendors. “We’ve been sticking them everywhere we can stick ’em.” Applooza at the Saturday Lawrence Farmers Market is set for Oct. 13. Even with apple harvest starting early, Bramlett said farmers don’t expect it to end so soon that they won’t have apples for the annual event. “They’re still saying they’ll be fine,” Bramlett said. — Features reporter Sara Shepherd can be reached at 832-7187.

Pour the rest of the batter over the top, and arrange the rest of the peach slices in a pretty pattern on the top. Or, if you are like me, just toss them on willy-nilly. Sprinkle with the remaining tablespoon of sugar. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes, until a toothpick comes out clean. Serve with vanilla ice cream for a lovely summer treat. This also makes an excellent breakfast cake. Trust me, I verified it this morning. — Read more of Megan Stuke’s Flying Fork blog at

Tortellini masquerade as croutons in a robust Caesar salad By J.M. Hirsch AP Food Editor

My 7-year-old son has made me an expert at Caesar salad. Though to be fair, some credit goes to April Bloomfield, too. After several years of “green is evil” behavior by my son, I recently — finally! — managed to persuade him to try Caesar salad. The kid loves savory, umami-rich foods, and I have the receipts from the butcher and cheese shops to prove it. So despite his reluctance to embrace romaine lettuce, I knew an anchovy, egg and Parmesan-rich Caesar dressing could win his heart. I had tried any number of times, but the sight of the lettuce always had him running. Until a few weeks ago. On a whim, I opened one of my new favorite cookbooks, “A Girl and Her Pig” by Bloomfield. If

CHEESE TORTELLINI add substance to a Caesar salad. you don’t know her, you should. She is the culinary force behind some of New York’s top spots at the moment, including The Spotted Pig and The John Dory Oyster Bar. Her food smacks of big, bold, slapyou-silly flavor. And her unpretentious cookbook of totally accessible recipes brings this into your home. All of which is to say

that when I saw her recipe for Caesar salad — she insists the dressing is best applied by gently tossing it onto the lettuce with your hands — I knew I had to try it. I fell in love. More importantly, so did my son. And it was no fluke. I’ve since made the salad for him about a dozen times and he still devours his greens with glee.

Trouble is, Caesar salad alone does not make a healthy diet, and certainly not a substantial meal. So I have experimented with how to bulk up this simple, delicious salad. Chicken was an obvious (if not all that original) choice. But rotisserie chicken is simply too easy to pass up for a summer salad-as-meal. I could have stopped there, but I wanted to play around with the starch. Traditionally, honking big croutons play that role. But I liked the idea of something that is both crunchy and cheesy-soft. Pan-crisped cheese tortellini were the perfect choice. Most people don’t realize it, but fresh pasta (the variety sold in the refrigerator case) can be cooked without water. Just give a spritz of cooking spray to a non-stick skillet, then add the pasta and saute until lightly browned and crisp.

Weather creates unusual pattern of early bumper crops, stunted crops By Sara Shepherd

This has just been a mixed-up year. We have to ONLINE: See the video at take what we’ve got and be happy we’ve got it.” With many buyers just

ning to realize it’s apple time, Ernie Richardson’s Gala crop has already come and gone. Normally, Richardson said, his Gala trees would be just ready for harvest. But the early variety showed up at least three weeks ahead of schedule, and now, “they’re done.” Following the lead of early summer stone fruits and most other produce this year, north-

— Donald Turner, of Turner’s Orchard in Kansas City, Kan. east Kansas apples are arriving one to four weeks early. The size and quality of early crops also varies. For that, growers blame the drought. “Everything is early, but it’s not uniformly early,” said Bruce

Curtis, who owns Fieldstone Orchard in Overbrook. “Some individual trees are earlier than others in the same variety. You’ve got to stay in tune with everything ... test and sample and make sure you’re getting them when they’re ripe.” Curtis, who bought the orchard and converted to organic practices a year ago, has had apples at the Merc and Cottin’s Hardware Farmers’ Market for weeks and hopes to get into the Saturday Lawrence Farmers’ Market soon. There’s a marked difference in the trees he irrigated and

the trees he didn’t, Curtis said. With the worst of the drought hopefully over, he’s optimistic his later varieties will come on strong before the season’s end, which he guesses will be late October for him. Walt Stephen, who owns Stephen’s Orchard in Bonner Springs, also hopes his late apples will be better than the ones he has now, which he said taste good but are small and few. “We’re not going to have a big crop, but at least we’re going to have a crop,” he said. Last year, a frost in late

spring decimated Stephen’s apples. This year, he lost about a third of his crop to “sunburn” in the heat that persisted from late June through July. Even though they taste fine, he has to sell those apples as seconds — which people snap up for drying or applesauce — because they don’t look good. “Mother Nature kind of takes care of what we get,” Stephen said. “You know, if we don’t get any rain, our apples suffer.” Donald Turner of Kansas Please see APPLES, page 9B


A peach cake just for grown-ups THE FLYING FORK M

y neighbor brought me some little peaches the other day. They were the cutest little things, grown by a co-worker of hers on a tree in his yard. Sweet and juicy, they needed an appropriate application. I was tempted just to eat them all up from hand to face, but I figured my family (read: almost 3-yearold) doesn’t appreciate the fuzzy skin so I’d be hoarding them all to myself, so that wasn’t the best plan, tempting as it was. I decided to bake them into a cake. That way, I was pretty sure everyone in my house would get a

a blog by Megan Stuke bite of them and I would have something to offer any guests who popped by this week for a treat on the patio while we enjoy this AMAZING weather. Peach cake is guilt-free, right? RIGHT? I mean, THERE IS FRUIT IN

THERE. Never mind the stick of butter or the sugar. THERE ARE PEACHES IN THAT CAKE. Therefore, it is health food. Or, at least, it’s better than cake sans peaches with tons of buttercream frosting, like the ones I made for my son’s birthday party last weekend. Some friends with kids were over this weekend, and one of them was hankering for something sweet, and I said, “Well, I have cake up there, but it’s not the kind of cake you get at Dillons with all the frosting. It has peaches in it.” And his mom said, “It’s grown-up cake. You

can’t have any.” So, forevermore, this cake shall be called Megan’s Grown Up Peach Cake.

Grown Up Peach Cake 2 pounds peaches, peeled and sliced 1/4 inch thick 1 teaspoon raspberry extract 1 teaspoon almond extract 1/3 teaspoon cinnamon 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice 1 stick butter (8 tablespoons), melted 1/2 teaspoon vanilla 1 cup Please see PEACH, page 9B

them is not your decision. Inform Harry that you will keep quiet, but that eventually, his kids will find out, and it would be best if it came directly from him, with Mom by his side, and not from, say, the Other Woman or her child. Urge him to consult a counselor who can help him find the best way to do this. Dear Annie: We have a daughter-in-law whom we love very much. Our problem is, when we are out in public, she wears blouses that are so low I am afraid her breasts will fall out. It is tremendously embarrassing for my husband and me. Should I ask her not to wear those blouses when we are out with her? Or do I just look the other way? — Nancy in Nantucket

Dear Stuck: Please respect Harry’s choices, even though you disagree. Depending on the ages of these children, telling them could be complicated and confusing. Yes, we agree that they should know they have a sibling, Dear Nancy: Criticizbut how and when to tell ing your daughter-in-

Shows about stuff pile up in TV lineup Stuff, it seems, is the stuff of cable programming. Millions of people watch other people appraise stuff, pawn stuff, pick stuff and sell stuff. There are entirely too many shows about storage lockers filled with unseen stuff that people bid on as if they were on some trashy version of “Let’s Make a Deal,” guessing the value of stuff behind Door No. 3. Tonight on A&E, you can watch an hour of “Storage Wars” reruns (7 and 7:30 p.m.) and then move on to “Storage Wars Texas” (8 and 8:30 p.m.). Presumably, after that you’ll be stuffed to the gills and ready for two helpings of “American Hoggers” (9 and 9:30 p.m.). As Ron Burgundy would say, “You stay classy, A&E.” W h i l e we’re on that subject, the History Channel offers four repeat helpings of “Cajun Pawn Stars” (7 through 9 p.m.), followed by two reruns of “American Restoration” (9 and 9:30 p.m.), where the search for stuff takes on a vintage feel. Looking for stuff with something extra? “Haunted Collector” (7 p.m. and 8 p.m., Syfy) looks for (and presumably exorcises) items whose departed owners may not subscribe to the adage “you can’t take it with you.” Of course, some people actually grow up before they die. But not the folks featured on “Toy Hunter” (8 and 8:30 p.m., Travel), people (sadly, mostly men my age) who never learned that the expression “toys in the attic” was not a compliment. All these shows about stuff talk a lot about the price of things but say little about their true value — particularly when you add up the time spent in their pursuit. Into this mix comes “Abandoned” (8 and 8:30 p.m., National Geographic), a 12-part series that follows urban scavengers as they explore and evaluate derelict buildings before the bulldozers arrive.

Tonight’s other highlights

The last 10 face two eliminations on “So You Think You Can Dance” (7 p.m., Fox).

“NOVA” (8 p.m., PBS) ventures into the realm of dreams.

A polo star perseveres on “Royal Pains” (8 p.m., USA).

Nail-biting in the waiting room on the season finale of “NY Med” (9 p.m., ABC).

Tennis stars share anything but love on “Necessary Roughness” (9 p.m., USA).

Mike takes on venomous critters in Australia on “Dirty Jobs” (9 p.m., Discovery).

The gang finds the Robot Mafia’s secret stash on “Futurama” (9 p.m., Comedy Central).

For Wednesday, Aug. 22: You will approach life with far greater intensity than in the past. A key partnership plays a much stronger role in looking at some of life’s basic issues. The superficial has no role in your life. Scorpio might have deep thoughts but could be hard to deal with. The Stars Show the Kind of Day You’ll Have: 5-Dynamic; 4-Positive; 3-Average; 2-So-so; 1-Difficult Aries (March 21-April 19)  You have a lot of panache, and you do not hesitate to display your passion and core feelings. By midday, you might decide to focus on a project, even if you are by yourself. Tonight: Return calls and emails. Taurus (April 20-May 20)  You easily get sidetracked, no matter what you are doing. Honor your priorities despite others inadvertently breaking into your plans, in need of your help. Tonight: Be responsive to a friend or family member. Gemini (May 21-June 20)  Focus on completion and getting the job done. When you become inspired, you feel like anything is possible; however, it will be your tremendous effort that makes a difference. Tonight: Relax. Cancer (June 21-July 22)  Understanding comes from getting past a self-imposed restraint. Also, be willing to verbalize your goals and desires. Tonight: Express your naughty side. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)  You could be far more possessive than you think you are. Try to be more self-aware, and listen to a partner’s feedback. Tonight: Curb a desire to go on a spending spree, if possible. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)  You have a strong reaction,

law’s clothing is never a good idea. If you can tolerate her decolletage, please do so. Otherwise, ask your son how he feels about this, and let him handle it. You also could buy her a lovely, demure new top for her birthday and hope that she will wear it the next time she sees you.

which is unlike your normally logical stance. Someone close to you might not be sure of what is going on, and could test this newfound assertiveness. Tonight: The world is your oyster. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)  You definitely know what you want, but getting someone to respond as you’d like could be a different story. Remain diplomatic yet clear. Tonight: Go shopping for that special item. Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)  You seem to be in your element; however, someone else might not be on the same mental plane as you. Tonight: Choose a high-energy activity. Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)  Understand that you are in a reflective stage right now that will not last much longer. Gather all the information you need in order to make a solid decision about a project. Tonight: Do not swallow your anger. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)  Aim for more of what you want, and focus on the more social aspects of your life. Be willing to verbalize more of what you desire, and you will manifest just that even more easily. Tonight: A friend could be too assertive. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)  When you take charge, others step back. You are fiery and direct in your word choice. Tonight: A must appearance. Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)  Your ability to incorporate many different perspectives to resolve a problem comes forward right now. Listen to your sixth sense about a misunderstanding. Tonight: How about some blues?

Dear Annie: Years ago, my brother, “Harry,” cheated on his wife. She forgave him, and they got back together. They seem very happy. A few years after his affair, the other woman had him served with paternity papers. Harry pays child support, but he has never met the child and says he doesn’t plan to. He doesn’t feel he can give that child the kind of relationship he has with his other children. He also doesn’t want his kids to find out that he cheated on their mother. Harry has asked that I keep this news private, but I feel he needs to play some part in this child’s life. I’ve tried talking to him, but he says it’s not my business. I also feel his children have the right to know, and that as the aunt to all of these children, I should tell them they have a sibling. Harry told me this is not
