Lawrence not alone when it comes to special taxes ———

GEORGIA CLARK, OF AUBURN, feeds a parking meter Wednesday afternoon along Massachusetts Street.

Day of week, weather factor into tickets 149 — and much higher on Saturdays — 366. And you also might have better odds if you pay attention to the weather. When it’s really hot, or really cold, fewer tickets are handed out, on average. For instance: ! When the temperature hits 100 degrees, the average tickets per day dips to 122. When it’s above 90 degrees, the average is 183. ! When the low temperature is under 10 degrees, the average daily tickets given is 210. The reason for the ticket fluctuations are not that com-

Like to keep your spare change and roll the dice against the odds of getting a $3 parking ticket in downtown Lawrence? A Journal-World review of daily parking tickets handed out by the city between January and July 25 of this year looked at the best days to make that bet. While the daily average of parking tickets given — excluding holidays and Sundays — is about 275, the number is much lower on Mondays —

plicated, said Teri Pierce, Parking Control Unit manager. The day of week variations are probably based on general traffic, as some days — like Saturdays — see more downtown visitors, said Pierce, whose department is part of the Information Services Division of the Lawrence Police Department. In addition, daily staffing factors — such as vacations and illness — probably play some part. When it comes to the weather factor, it’s based on safety, said Lawrence Police Sgt. Matt Sarna. “We do not want our parking control officers out in

weather, whether hot or cold, that is too extreme for their safety and health,” Sarna said. So far this year, no tickets were given on 12 days because on wintry conditions, he said. The city doesn’t have a rule, Sarna said, but cited instances where roads were impassable, or heat indices hit the 110s. On those days, parking control officers are assigned other duties, he said.

Lawrence shouldn’t have all the fun when it comes to signs and special sales taxes. Lawrence city commissioners at their Tuesday meeting directed staff members to draft an ordinance that would require all special sales tax districts in Lawrence to post signs notifying shoppers of the higher sales tax rates. But the signs shouldn’t stop there, Lawrence leaders said. “We need signage, but so does the state,” said Mayor Aron Cromwell. “It is unfair to our citizens. That is something we need to put a call out on at the state level.” The state has more than 40 disCITY tricts that charge a special sales tax that is over-and-above the COMMISSION common rate charged in their communities. That has created situations where similar merchants on different sides of the street are charging significantly different sales taxes for the same goods. City commissioners have heard multiple complaints from the public about the special taxes not being transparent enough, but commissioners said they’re not sure Lawrence shoppers understand they’re being hit with special taxes when they shop at many places in Kansas City. “When you look at the list of places that have Please see TAX, page 2A

Lawrence high school freshmen line up for sports By Mark Fagan mfagan@ljworld.com

Athletics rosters are expanding with young talent at Free State and Lawrence high schools, now that freshmen are enrolled for the first time as full-fledged high schoolers. As both schools open their athletics seasons this week — the Lions fielded their Fall Sports Jamboree on Wednesday night, while the Firebirds line up this evening — administrators and coaches are counting on additional participation from ninth-graders this season and in the years ahead. “Our goal is to get as many kids involved in co- and extracurriculars as possible,” said Mike Hill, Free State athletic director and baseball coach. “It’s very clear what the academic benefit is for those who par-

We these (special taxes), they are a lot of the same places we’re need to find another losing sales to,” Cromwell way.” said. Among the locations that shoppers will pay a special tax — they vary in their amount but can be up to 2 percent — include: !" In Kansas City, Kan., at numerous locations around the Kansas Speedway and as part of the Village West and Legends developments. ! In Leawood at various locations along Nall Avenue and 119th Street. ! In Lenexa at various locations along Quivira Road. ! In Olathe at various locations along South Renner Road, 119th Street, Blackbob Road, and at locations near the Great Mall of the Great Plains. ! In Overland Park along parts of Metcalf Avenue, West 135th Street, West 95th Street and along Quivira Road near the Oak Park Mall. A change in state law requiring all special taxing districts to post signs alerting shoppers to the higher tax would help level the playing field, Cromwell said. But such a change might be tough to come by. Legislation was introduced last session, said Sen. Tom Holland, D-Baldwin City, that would have required every retailer, regardless of whether they were in a special taxing district, to post a sign stating their sales tax rate. Holland, who supported the legislation, said the bill had momentum in the Senate but struggled in the House. Rep. Richard Carlson, chairman of the House’s taxation committee, said there was concern that the signs could serve as a punishment for businesses who are doing the state’s work by collecting sales taxes. Carlson said not all businesses who are in a special taxing district support the extra taxes. He said some merchants are renters, who have very little ability to protest the special taxing districts. It is property owners who can request the special taxing districts and also can protest against their creation. “I believe in transparency for the taxpayer, but I also believe in not punishing a re-

Orthopedic surgeon starting his own practice after 32 years By Karrey Britt kbritt@ljworld.com

Dr. Ken Wertzberger, a Lawrence native, has left OrthoKansas after 32 years to start his own practice in Lawrence and to provide care at Cushing Memorial Hospital in Leavenworth. “It was just time. I’ve always admired people who have changed their careers and I’ve never had the gumption to do that, but I’ve decided to now in the twilight of my career,” he said. At age 63, Wertzberger has started a new corporation called OrthoWertz. He said he hoped to start a Lawrence practice sooner rather than later, so it wouldn’t affect his patients. At OrthoKansas, he saw about 30 patients per day and performed about 400 surgeries a year. He specializes in knee and shoulder problems. Over the years, he has developed close relationships with his many patients. “I don’t like the lurch that

I’ve put some people in because I don’t have an office here in Lawrence and I can’t really see anybody, so that’s kind of cut those Wertzberger ties in a way that I hadn’t anticipated,” he said. “But those can always be started back up.” Wertzberger said he didn’t realize that he would have to get re-certification from the insurance companies with a new business — a process that will take about 120 days. So he can’t accept insurance until then. “I was very surprised how little I know about business side,” he said. “So I’m getting an awakening as far as some of those details.” He hasn’t found a location for his business yet. He plans to start small with just a few employees, including Shane Alford, who has been his

physician’s assistant for two years. In September, he will begin practicing twice a week at Cushing Memorial Hospital. Wertzberger said the hospital has sought his services for about 15 years. He also said that about 10 percent of his OrthoKansas patients were from the Leavenworth area. Wertzberger said his main goal is to scale back on work. “For the first time, I’ve been home for more than one week in 32 years, so it’s kind of been refreshing to kind of start exercising again and revitalize,” he said, adding, “I am not retiring, just downshifting.” — Health reporter Karrey Britt can be reached at 832-7190.

tailer,” said Carlson, who said he doesn’t support the idea of special taxing districts to begin with. “We need to find another way.” The League of Kansas Municipalities — whose leaders lobby at the Statehouse on behalf of cities — also hasn’t been a supporter of the idea of requiring signs to be posted at special taxing districts. Kimberly Winn, deputy director of the organization, said her group generally believes in letting each city make its own decision about the matter. Wichita is the only city in the state that has adopted an ordinance that requires signs in the special taxing districts. Merchants there must post at least a 24-inch square sign that reads, “This project made possible by Community Improvement District Financing. For more information go to www.wichita.gov/ cid.” Lawrence City Commissioner Bob Schumm said he envisions Lawrence sign regulation being more specific. “So what, before you go in the store, you’re going to turn on your computer?” Schumm said of the Wichita sign. Schumm said he wants a sign that specifically says how much higher the sales tax is in the district than compared with the citywide sales tax rate. He also said he would want the districts to post signs that look similar to parking signs so that motorists can be alerted to the sales tax rate before deciding whether to pull into a merchant’s parking lot. “I want the signs to be useful to people before they make a decision to shop there,” Schumm said.

Lawrence Memorial Hospital plans to start a pulmonary practice next year and is recruiting pulmonologists who will serve as intensivists. Intensivists are doctors who provide care for hospitalized people who need critical care or intensive care.

There is just one pulmonologist, Dr. Lida Osbern of Reed Medical Group, in Lawrence.

County to purchase additional property

No formal offer to purchase that property has been made by the county.

Man accused of inhaling toxic fumes Lawrence police on Monday arrested a 25-year-old Lawrence man, accusing him of inhaling toxic fumes out of a can in a vehicle. Sgt. Matt Sarna, a police spokesman, said officers were called around 4:45 p.m. about a driver who was driving recklessly in the area of the 2400 block of West 25th Street, just west of 25th and Iowa streets. Sarna said an officer found the vehicle in a parking lot and discovered the 25-year-old man inside with cans of toxic chemicals. He was arrested on one count of abusing toxic vapors, according to Douglas County Jail records. The man posted $500 bond Monday evening and was given a summons to appear in Douglas County District Court on Sept. 6, meaning Douglas County prosecutors can wait until later to make a decision about filing formal charges. The Journal-World generally does not identify suspects unless they are formally charged.

Lawrence Paper Co. buys Lenexa firm A Lawrence-based manufacturer of cardboard boxes has purchased a Lenexa-based competitor in an effort to boost business. Lawrence Paper Co. announced Tuesday that it has reached a deal to buy the Kansas City division of Liberty Carton Co. The deal calls for all of Liberty Carton’s operations to be transferred to Lawrence. “It is a rough market out there, and we have the capacity at our plant to do more business,” said Justin Hill, president of the Lawrence Paper Co. “This will help us put more business through our plant.” Liberty’s Kansas City division had about 15 employees. Hill said the workforce at the Lawrence paper plant will grow as a result of the deal, but he said by how much had not yet been determined. Lawrence Paper Co., which has its offices and production plant at 2801 Lakeview Road, currently employs about 200 people. The deal marks the first acquisition in several years for the company, which has been based in Lawrence since 1882.

Douglas County commissioners Wednesday authorized County Administrator Craig Weinaug to send an offer to Printing Solutions for a parcel of land in the Franklin Business Park. The offer to the company is one of two potential property acquisitions the county included as part of a plan to build COUNTY a new Public COMMISSION Works facility near Douglas County Jail, 3601 E. 25th St. The original property to be purchased by the county covers approximately 34 acres. The two additional purchase offers would serve to give the future facility more room to expand and grow, though a timeline for the process has not been set. The land addition gives the county control of the Board of Trustees of the covenants, which ultimately will provide the downtown homeless shelter with the ability to relocate. As laid out in the proposed agreement in late July, the county will offer Printing Solutions the 2011 county-appraised price of $250,000 for the property, which includes Hillcrest Wrecker.

These doctors would provide inpatient and outpatient care from a new office located in the Fourth Street Health Plaza, which is connected to LMH. Meanwhile, LMH has contracted with a handful of pulmonologists in a Topekabased Cotton-O’Neil group to help provide care. “Now that we are keeping more and more patients here as a result of our hospitalist program and providing care so people don’t have to go elsewhere, having additional coverage with pulmonary is absolutely necessary,” Meyer said.

Nature uncooperative with sunflower plantings 1 | LIBYA

Rebels hunt Gadhafi Libyans hunting Moammar Gadhafi offered a $2 million bounty on the fallen dictator’s head and amnesty for anyone who kills or captures him as rebels battled Wednesday to clear the last pockets of resistance from the capital Tripoli. While some die-hard loyalists kept up the fight to defend Gadhafi, his support was crumbling by the hour. His deputy intelligence chief defected, and even his foreign minister said his 42-year rule was over. A defiant Gadhafi vowed from hiding to fight on “until victory or martyrdom,” in an audio message early Wednesday. He may have little choice. Asked by the British broadcaster Channel 4 if a negotiated settlement or safe passage for Gadhafi from Libya was still possible, Foreign Minister Abdul Ati al-Obeidi said: “It looks like things have passed this kind of solution.” Rebel leaders were beginning to set up a new government in the capital.

Quake damage closes monument

Richard Gwin/ Journal-World Photo

TED GRINTER, WHO LIVES BETWEEN LAWRENCE AND TONGONOXIE, works on his 27 acres of sunflowers Wednesday. Grinter said some of the sunflowers are up but some were washed away or didn’t come up, so some will be in bloom and others will be up to three weeks late this season.

There were cracks in the Washington Monument and broken capstones at the National Cathedral. In the District of Columbia suburbs, some people stayed in shelters because of structural concerns at their apartment buildings. A day after the East Coast’s strongest earthquake in 67 years, inspectors assessed the damage and found that most problems were minor. But the shaking raised questions about whether this part of the country, with its older architecture and inexperience with seismic activity, is prepared for a truly powerful quake. The 5.8 magnitude quake felt from Georgia north to Canada prompted swift inspections of many structures Wednesday, including bridges and nuclear plants. An accurate damage estimate could take weeks, if not longer. And many people will not be covered by insurance. In a small Virginia city near the epicenter, the entire downtown business district was closed. School was canceled for two weeks to give engineers time to check out cracks in several buildings. At the 555-foot Washington Monument, inspectors found several cracks in the pyramidion — the section at the top of the obelisk where it begins narrowing to a point. The monument was to remain closed indefinitely, and Johnson said the additional cracks mean repairs are likely to take longer.

Fields in staggered bloom after struggling through rain, heat By Shawn Linenberger slinenberger@theworldco.info

TONGANOXIE — Ted Grinter’s sunflower crop had a slight Goldilocks complex this summer — but he hopes his bounty of the state flower now has found that everything is just right. When Grinter and his wife, Kris, planted 27 acres of sunflowers on the family’s southwest Leavenworth County farmland, 3 1/2 inches of rain fell the next day, providing too much rain for the fledgling crop. After his second planting came a dry spell and a streak of triple-digit temperatures. Sunflowers can handle some dry weather, but it wasn’t ideal for normal growth. “Dry seed setting in dry ground, they just did not like that,” Grinter said. He replanted five of the 27 acres a third time and, slowly but surely, the entire crop continues to grow.

Hurricane Irene lashes island chain A large and powerful Hurricane Irene was roaring its way Wednesday across the entire Bahamas archipelago, knocking down trees and tearing up roofs and posing the most severe threat to the smallest and least populated islands, officials said. Bahamian Prime Minister Hubert Ingraham said there have been no major injuries or deaths according to preliminary reports he has been receiving from throughout the widely scattered islands. But he added that they would not know the full extent of damage from the Category 3 storm until it is clear of the country on Friday. Ingraham said the latest storm data seemed to indicate that lightly populated Cat Island, as well as the even smaller Rum Cay, were in particular danger because the storm was expected to pass over the entire length of both islands. Bahamian forecasters said New Providence, the largest and most populated island, would see tropical-storm-force winds starting late Wednesday. 4 | FLORIDA

Space station supply ship crashes A Russian space station supply ship crashed with a thunderous boom into Siberia minutes after launch Wednesday, rattling NASA and others in this new era without any shuttles to bail out the orbiting outpost. The rocket failed barely a month after NASA’s final space shuttle flight. While the International Space Station has more than enough supplies, the accident threatens to delay the launch of the next crew, just one month away. That’s because the upper stage of the unmanned Soyuz rocket that failed is similar to the ones used to launch astronauts to the station. In addition, three of the six space station residents who are due to return to Earth in two weeks might end up staying longer. NASA wants a full staff to keep research going. The astronauts were just beginning to spend more time on scientific experiments, now that the station is complete.

Take a left on 243rd Street and then a right on Stillwell Road. ! You also can take a left onto County Road 27/Stillwell Road from U.S. 24-40 if you go past 243rd Street. ! If you reach the unincorporated town of Reno, you’ve gone too far. ! The sunflower field is near the Grinter home at 24154 Stillwell Road. “I’m hoping they’ll turn yellow and at least be pretty to look at,” Grinter said. This year’s crop is near 24154 Stillwell Road, a rural Lawrence address. Jim Grinter, Ted’s father, started planting sunflowers nearly 40 years ago in hopes

of using the sunflower oil for fuel, but there was nowhere in the area in which to process it. Now, the family harvests and sells the seeds and opens the field up to visitors. Jane Blocher, executive director of the Douglas County chapter of the American Red Cross, said she and fellow northwest Lawrence neighbors take a pilgrimage to the sunflower field each year. “We always look forward to this time of year,” Blocher said. “And it is, I think, the most wonderful photo opportunity in northeast Kansas.” Ted said he’s had inquiries from as far away as Michigan and Texas about visiting the sunflower field. For more information about the sunflower field’s progress, see Kris’ blog, krisgrinter. blogspot.com. — Shawn Linenberger, news editor of The Mirror of Tonganoxie, can be reached at 913845-2222.

Recent problems on Sprint network attributed to return of KU students By Andy Hyland ahyland@ljworld.com

Trish Jess said on Tuesday it was something like a kind of Twilight Zone. While working at the Kansas Union, her Sprint mobile phone was displaying the time one hour behind schedule. She first noticed that last Friday, she said. “At home, it’s correct,” said Jess, who lives west of Monterey Way. It wasn’t just her, either. Student employees at the KU Bookstore were going on break at the wrong times, she said. Other coworkers also complained. Amanda Davis, who lives

near Ninth and New York streets, said that while at home, she experienced the issue, too, and had text messages delayed for hours at a time. At work in Overland Park, everything was normal. On Twitter, several Lawrence residents reported having issues with Sprint phones going back to last week, saying they displayed the wrong times and were delivering text messages hours past the time they were sent. “It delivers them kind of sporadically,” Davis said. “You can tell they’ve been backed up.” Her husband, who works in social media from home, and

Melinda Tiemeyer, a Sprint spokeswoman, said she couldn’t say for sure why the issues were occurring. “The best guess is that it was related to all of the KU students coming back and starting class,” Tiemeyer said. “We had to reallocate network resources to increase the capacity.” Some phone users reported that the issues seemed to be mostly resolved by Wednesday afternoon. — Higher education reporter Andy Hyland can be reached at 832-6388.

A committee working on establishing a health insurance exchange in Kansas decided on Wednesday to continue its efforts even though Gov. Sam Brownback rejected a $31.5 million federal grant to set up the exchange, and many in the Legislature want nothing to do with it. Kansas Insurance Commissioner Sandy Praeger said that under federal health reform, Kansas will have to implement an exchange by 2014. The question is whether Kansas will have one that is developed by the state or the federal government, she “I still think the said. best course of Praeger ar- action is trying to gued that plan- be ready.” ning should continue de- — Kansas Insurance spite BrownCommissioner back’s deciSandy Praeger sion. “I still think the best course of action is trying to be ready,” she said. Kansas had received an “early innovator” grant from the federal government to work on putting in place the exchange, which is designed to help consumers access health insurance, and will be key in providing subsidies for people to buy coverage. Most of the work in developing the health exchange, Praeger said, is overhauling the state’s Medicaid enrollment system. The health insurance exchange is major part of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act signed into law by President Barack Obama. Praeger, a Republican, had argued that Kansas could use the federal grant to put in place an exchange better suited to Kansas needs. Brownback, also a Republican, signed off on Kansas’ grant application earlier this year, but two weeks ago he announced that he was rejecting the grant, saying there were too many strings attached and there was too much uncertainty about future federal funding.

BUSINESS AT A GLANCE

Notable ! After months of unrelieved gloom and discord, Congress and President Barack Obama are starting to make a dent in the federal budget deficit. It’s projected to shrink slightly to $1.28 trillion this year, and bigger savings from this month’s debt ceiling deal are forecast over the next decade. No one’s celebrating. There will be plenty of red ink for years to come. The nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office projected Wednesday that annual budget deficits will be reduced by a total of $3.3 trillion over the next decade, largely because of the deficit reduction package passed by Congress earlier this month.

Steve Jobs, Apple CEO and creative force, resigns By Jordan Robertson and Rachel Metz Associated Press

SAN FRANCISCO — Steve Jobs, the mind behind the iPhone, iPad and other devices that turned Apple Inc. into one of the world’s most powerful companies, resigned as CEO on Wednesday, saying he can no longer handle the job but will continue to play a leadership role. The move appears to be the result of an unspecified medical condition for which Jobs took a leave from his post in January. Apple’s chief operating officer, Tim Cook, was quickly named CEO of the company Jobs co-founded 35 years ago in his garage. In a letter addressed to Apple’s board and the “Apple community,” Jobs said he “always said if there ever came a day when I could no longer meet my duties and expectations as Apple’s CEO, I would be the first to let you know. Unfortunately, that day has come.” The company said Jobs gave the board his resignation Wednesday and suggested Cook be named the company’s new leader. Apple said Jobs was elected board chairman and Cook is becoming a member of its board. Genentech Inc. Chairman Art Levinson, in a statement issued on behalf of Apple’s

board, said Jobs’ “extraordinary vision and leadership saved Apple and guided it to its position as the world’s most innovative and valuable technology company.” He said that Jobs will continue to provide “his unique insights, creativity and inspiration,” and that the board has “complete confidence” that Cook is the right person to replace him. “Tim’s 13 years of service to Apple have been marked by outstanding performance, and he has demonstrated remarkable talent and sound judgment in everything he does,” Levinson said. Jobs’ health has long been a concern for Apple investors who see him as an industry oracle who seems to know what consumers want long before they do. After his announcement, Apple stock quickly fell 5.4 percent in after-hours trading. Jeff Gamet, managing editor of The Mac Observer online news site focused on Apple, said Jobs’ departure has more sentimental than practical significance. “All Apple really has done is made official what they’ve been doing administratively for a while now, which is Tim runs the show and Steve gets to do his part to make sure the products come out to meet the Apple standard,” he said.

of the federal health reform law, which many consider Obama’s signature piece of legislation. In a meeting Wednesday of the health benefit exchange steering committee, Kansas insurers, health care providers and others argued that the committee should continue working on the initiative. Some expressed frustration with Brownback’s actions. Brenda Sharpe, president and chief executive officer of Merriam-based REACH Healthcare Foundation, said Brownback’s refusal of federal funds was disappointing. HEALTH Sharpe rejected the idea that health care foundations may be able to help fund the state’s effort to set up an exchange, saying foundations were stretched thin trying to patch budget shortfalls for safety net clinics and mental health centers. “We are not going to supplant dollars that were accepted and then rejected,” she said. Sheldon Weisgrau, director of the Health Reform Resource Project, said while the federal reform law comes under constant attack, many forget why it was approved. “We have serious problems in our health system,” he said. He said critics of the bill seldom come up with a viable alternative. In Kansas, more than 300,000 people are uninsured. More than 500,000 Kansans are expected to ben-

Attempted copper theft causes church to lose air conditioning By George Diepenbrock gdiepenbrock@ljworld.com

Who is your current cellphone provider, and what grade would you give its overall service?

An attempted copper theft damaged an air-conditioning unit at First Presbyterian Church of Lawrence and left the church and preschool Asked on Massachusetts Street without cool air for most of Wednesday as the area was under a heat advisory. “We’ve got fans running all over the building. As long as the air is moving it’s not very bad,” associate pastor Mary Newberg Gale said at 10:45 a.m. “This afternoon’s going to be a different story.” She said staff members and teachers gave parents a choice Wednesday morning to pick their children up early from the preschool that ends normally at 11:30 a.m. Bruce Boyer, at the church, 2415 Clinton self-employed, Lawrence “AT&T and probably a B.

Parkway. Only church staff members and possibly some teachers were scheduled to be in the building in the afternoon. The church made a report with Lawrence police Tuesday evening after discovering $1,500 in damage. Staff members noticed Tuesday afternoon how hot the building was getting. Newberg Gale said church leaders believe someone broke into an outside area either Sunday night or Monday morning where the chillers are kept and tried to steal copper piping. But church members believe when the apparent thief cut through two 3-inch pressurized pipes, Freon began leaking, and the suspect ran away. The system was large enough to keep working un-

til it ran out of coolant some time Tuesday, Newberg Gale said. A church staff member at 4:15 p.m. Wednesday said half of the system had been repaired, meaning preschool today would continue as normal. A crew would then continue trying to make repairs to the rest of the system this afternoon, she said. “It’s frustrating that we are dealing with this, and it’s also frustrating that someone thought this was what they needed to do,” Newberg Gale said Wednesday morning. “It’s sad that they felt this was their only option and that this was an option.”

SOUND OFF

Q:

After reading about the Washington, D.C., earthquake, I am wondering about the risk in Lawrence. Are we on a fault? I found a FEMA report from 2000 that suggests we are at low risk, but so was D.C.

A:

Earthquakes are rare in Kansas, but not impossible, and quakes in neighboring states have been felt throughout Kansas in the past. All have been minor. The Humboldt Fault Zone runs north-south through the state near Manhattan. Don Steeples, professor of geology at Kansas University, said that this fault may be capable of producing a quake of magnitude-6, which could cause minor property damage but would be un-

likely to majorly affect northeast Kansas residents. “An earthquake of that size could happen in this area any old day,” he said Wednesday, of Tuesday’s East Coast quake. According to the U.S. Geological Service’s website, the earthquake risk for the state of Kansas is even lower than that of the Washington, D.C., area. The quake felt there on Tuesday was a magnitude-5.8, according to the USGS. Steeples said that the largest he’s recorded in the Humboldt Fault Zone was an almostnegligible magnitude-2.7.

Coroner leaving Shawnee County office but still serving Douglas County

By George Diepenbrock gdiepenbrock@ljworld.com

Coroner Dr. Erik Mitchell said Douglas County should not notice a change in service from his office even though he resigned Wednesday morning as Shawnee County’s coroner, effective at the end of the year. After failing to reach an agreement with Shawnee Samantha Reid, County commissioners about student, funding his office in the Chicago, Ill. 2012 budget, Mitchell said “I have AT&T. I’d give them he would begin moving his a B because sometimes you Frontier Forensics P.A. praccan’t find signal anywhere tice from Topeka to an office and the Internet can be really he has in Kansas City, Kan. slow, but most of the time So autopsies from Douglas it works fine and the phone County will be conducted itself doesn’t seem to have there instead of in Topeka. any issues.” Mitchell has served as Douglas County’s coroner

since the mid-1990s and is a part-owner of Frontier Forensics in Topeka. His office also operates coroner services for Lyon, Chase, Allen, Neosho, Wilson and Woodson counties and provides deputy coroner services in several others, including Osage, Franklin and Jefferson counties. Dr. Donald Pojman, also a part-owner of Frontier Forensics, and Dr. Altaf Hossain are physicians in Mitchell’s office and serve as deputy Douglas County coroners. Mitchell did confirm he told Shawnee County commissioners Wednesday morning that he had been offered a position in New York and intended to accept it. Wednesday afternoon he said he was “certainly going to look at” taking the position.

BRIEFLY Attorneys question competence in trial

Brie Stewart, student, Florida “I have Verizon. I’d say a B because a lot of their phones now, you don’t even have an option — you have to have the data plan. So if you can’t afford that, you’re pretty much screwed.”

Charlie Huggard-Lee, software engineer, Lawrence “AT&T and probably a B because sometimes it’s great, other times it’s just terrible. Also when I travel it’s kind of spotty.”

ON THE RECORD

Attorneys for both sides are asking a federal judge to declare Guy Neighbors, an owner of the former Yellow House Store in Lawrence, mentally competent to stand trial in the three cases he faces. According to a joint motion filed by the prosecution and defense, the request comes after a second psychiatrist, Dr. John H. Wisner at Kansas University Hospital, evaluated Neighbors and “took exception” to findings by Dr. Robert Lucking, a psychiatrist at the Bureau of Prisons Federal Medical Center in Butner, N.C., that Neighbors was not competent to stand trial. Wisner found that Neighbors does not suffer from a mental disease or defect which affects or diminishes his ability to understand charges against him or to assist in his own defense. Neighbors, 53, earlier this year won an appeal over a similar issue when a 10th Circuit Court of Appeals panel sent his case back to U.S. District Judge Carlos Murguia’s court and ruled Murguia needed to hold a formal hearing supported by U.S. Supreme Court precedent to be able to give an order to involuntarily medicate Neighbors. In the main case against Neighbors, federal prosecutors accuse him of selling stolen goods, mostly on eBay, from the former secondhand store, 1904 Mass. His wife, Carrie

Neighbors, 50, in January was sentenced to serve eight years in prison after a jury in 2010 convicted her in the case. She is appealing that verdict. Attorneys now are asking Murguia on Monday to instead schedule a trial for Guy Neighbors in the case.

Man accused of stalking KU student A Kansas University Public Safety officer arrested a 25-year-old Lawrence man Wednesday accused of stalking a 19-year-old female KU student, Capt. Schuyler Bailey said. Bailey said the alleged stalking had been ongoing since July, and it involved sending email messages and other forms of contact. The suspect had been warned to stop, but he was arrested after the woman reported the stalking continued. Bailey said the two had no past relationship. According to Douglas County Jail records, the man was arrested about 11:30 p.m. in the 1700 block of Anna Drive, which is in the Stouffer Place apartment complex on campus. Bailey said both the suspect and alleged victim are KU students. The man was still in jail held on the stalking charge Wednesday as Douglas County prosecutors said they likely would file formal charges today. The Journal-World generally does not identify suspects unless they are formally charged.

SURVEY

Health

overhaul may push benefits shift By Tom Murphy Associated Press

INDIANAPOLIS — Nearly one of every 10 midsized or big employers expects to stop offering health coverage to workers after insurance exchanges begin operating in 2014 as part of President Barack Obama’s health care overhaul, according to a survey by a major benefits consultant. Towers Watson also found in its July survey that another one in five companies are unsure about what they will do after 2014. Another big benefits consultant, Mercer, found in a June survey of large and smaller employers that 8 percent are either “likely” or “very likely” to end health benefits after the exchanges start. The surveys, which involved more than 1,200 companies, suggest that some businesses feel they will be better off dropping health insurance coverage once the exchanges start, even though they could face fines and tax headaches. The percentage of companies that are already saying they expect to do this surprised some experts, and if they follow through, it could start a trend that chips away at employer-sponsored health coverage, a long-standing pillar of the nation’s health system. “If one employer does it, others likely will follow,” said Paul Fronstin of the Employee Benefit Research Institute. “You would see this playing out over the course of years, not months.” A large majority of employers in both studies said they expect to continue offering benefits after these exchanges start. But former insurance executive Bob Laszewski said he was surprised that as many as 8 or 9 percent of companies already expect to drop coverage a couple of years before the exchanges start. Such a move could lead to more taxes for both companies and employees, since health benefits currently are not taxed, and companies could be fined for dropping coverage. It also would give their employees a steep compensation cut if they don’t receive a pay raise, too. “Dropping coverage is going to be very difficult for these (companies) to do,” said Laszewski, a consultant. Towers Watson’s Randall Abbott said the survey results should be seen as a snapshot of how companies are thinking now, not as a final decision, because there still are many unresolved variables. Companies may change their thinking once they learn more about how the exchanges will work or whether employees will accept them. The health care overhaul also faces court challenges, and President Obama is up for re-election next year, two more variables that could shape what happens in 2014 and afterward. The Obama administration took issue with the Towers Watson survey, pointing out that studies by the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office and nonprofits like Urban Institute reached different conclusions. An Urban Institute study projected that the overhaul will have little effect on employer-sponsored insurance. When lawmakers debated the legislation, the CBO projected it would only have minimal impact on employer plans. About 3 million fewer people would be covered through work, but they’d be able to get insurance elsewhere. Health and Human Services spokesman Richard Sorian said the administration expects to see a rise in employer-sponsored health insurance, not a decline. “History has shown that reform motivates more businesses to offer insurance,” said Sorian. “Health reform in Massachusetts uses a similar structure, and the number of people with employersponsored insurance in Massachusetts has increased.”

With CIA help, NYPD moves covertly in Muslim areas By Adam Goldman and Matt Apuzzo Associated Press

NEW YORK — Since the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, the New York Police Department has become one of the nation’s most aggressive domestic intelligence agencies, targeting ethnic communities in ways that would run afoul of civil liberties rules if practiced by the federal government, an Associated Press investigation has found. The operations have benefited from unprecedented help from the CIA, a partnership that has blurred the line between foreign and domestic spying. The department has dispatched undercover officers, known as “rakers,” into minority neighborhoods as part of a human mapping program, according to officials directly involved in the program. They’ve monitored daily life in bookstores, bars, cafes and nightclubs. Police have also used informants,

known as “mosque crawlers,” to monitor sermons, even when there’s no evidence of wrongdoing. Neither the city council, which finances the department, nor the federal government, which has given NYPD more than $1.6 billion since 9/11, is told exactly what’s going on. Many of these operations were built with help from the CIA, which is prohibited from spying on Americans but was instrumental in transforming the NYPD’s intelligence unit. A veteran CIA officer, while still on the agency’s payroll, was the architect of the NYPD’s intelligence programs. The CIA trained a police detective at the Farm, the agency’s spy school in Virginia, then returned him to New York, where he put his new espionage skills to work inside the United States. And just last month, the CIA sent a senior officer to work as a clandestine operative inside police headquarters. The NYPD denied that it

trolls ethnic neighborhoods and said it only follows leads. Police operations have disrupted terrorist plots and put several would-be killers in prison. “The New York Police Department is doing everything it can to make sure there’s not another 9/11 here and that more innocent New Yorkers are not killed by terrorists,” NYPD spokesman Paul Browne said. “And we have nothing to apologize for in that regard.” AP’s investigation is based on documents and interviews with more than 40 current and former New York Police Department and federal officials. Many were directly involved in planning and carrying out these secret operations for the department. Though most said the tactics were appropriate and made the city safer, many insisted on anonymity, because they were not authorized to speak with reporters about security matters. In response to the story, the Council on American-

Islamic Relations, a leading Muslim civil rights organization, called on the Justice Department to investigate. The Justice Department said Wednesday night it would review the request. “This is potentially illegal what they’re doing,” said Gadeir Abbas, a staff attorney with the organization. After the terrorist attacks, New York hired retired CIA official David Cohen to transform its intelligence division. Among Cohen’s earliest moves at the NYPD was asking for help from his old CIA colleagues. He needed someone who had access to the latest intelligence so the NYPD wouldn’t have to rely on the FBI to dole out information. CIA Director George Tenet dispatched Larry Sanchez, a respected CIA veteran, to New York while Sanchez was still on the CIA payroll, three former intelligence officials said. Sanchez directed and mentored officers, schooling them in the art of gathering information, officials said.

There had never been an arrangement like it, and some senior CIA officials soon began questioning whether Tenet was allowing Sanchez to operate on both sides of the wall that’s supposed to keep the CIA out of the domestic intelligence business. “It should not be a surprise to anyone that, after 9/11, the Central Intelligence Agency stepped up its cooperation with law enforcement on counterterrorism issues or that some of that increased cooperation was in New York, the site of ground zero,” CIA spokeswoman Jennifer Youngblood said. Cohen also persuaded a federal judge to loosen rules and allow police to open investigations before there’s any indication a crime has been committed. With that newfound authority, Cohen created a secret squad that would soon infiltrate Muslim neighborhoods, according to several current and former officials directly involved in the program.

Slow to realize Why has the obvious notion that Regents, lawmakers should be better acquainted not been heeded until now?

A

recent Journal-World report of actions and activities at last week’s Kansas Board of Regents meeting told of the suggestion by several Regents that it would be wise for board members to become better acquainted with state legislators and the governor. Why has it taken so long for common sense to be considered at a Regents meeting? Year after year, there are complaints state lawmakers do not understand or appreciate the fiscal needs of higher education. The governor is criticized for not being in tune with the needs at the various Regents schools. Do the Regents realize the importance of doing a better job of telling their story, and of developing friendship and respect among the Legislature? Strong support for higher education will help the economic development of the state which, in turn, is likely to bring about better results in the funding exercise. Regent Tim Emert of Independence, a former legislator who served as Senate majority leader, said making contacts with those who control the purse strings and those who help form public opinion is paramount in advancing higher education initiatives in Kansas. Kenny Wilk of Lansing, a newly appointed Regent and a former state legislator, said Regents should make sure they establish relationships with the new crop of legislators, who in several years will be holding leadership positions. Gov. Sam Brownback also stressed the importance of Regents doing a better job of telling the story of the fiscal needs of higher education. He said the best way to get on the good side of lawmakers, as well as the governor, is to set measurable targets for the universities that will produce results. Otherwise, Brownback said, the only message that is heard is: “We want more money.” Those appointed to the Board of Regents are expected to be knowledgeable and “street smart.” Why haven’t they had the smarts to realize the importance of developing closer, more respectful and more understanding relationships with lawmakers? Former lawmakers have served as Regents in past years, but apparently it wasn’t until Kenny Wilk joined the board, and last week was his first meeting, that his common-sense message got the attention of his fellow Regents. Wilk’s presence on the board is sure to make it a far more effective body in telling the story and needs of higher education. He also is sure to make it clear to senior university leaders as to what will be expected from them.

Moving forward after an ouster As Libyan rebels seize Tripoli, it’s a ripe moment to reconsider the mythology of the Arab Spring. The Libyan rebels, like those in Tunisia and Egypt, have shown that the rule of Mideast despots will no longer go uncontested. But this cri de coeur by discontented youth doesn’t guarantee that new democracies will emerge. The springtime burst of optimism after the fall of autocrats in Cairo and Tunis was followed by a bloody summer in Libya and Syria. Despite the contagious explosion of popular frustration that swept most Arab nations, their prospects for positive change in the short term are slim. For most, full blown democracy will take years, or decades, to achieve. Judging from developments in Tunisia, Egypt, Syria, and Libya, most Arab revolts share one thing in common. Those Arabs with the most open-minded, tolerant vision of change are having difficulty forming cohesive political movements. Islamists and remnants of the old guard seem better able to organize and have greater financial resources. Libya — a country with almost no functioning institutions after 42 years of Moammar Gadhafi’s bizarre rule — will have a hard time bucking that trend. At this point, we know very little about who will wind up governing Libya. The Benghazibased opposition leadership known as the National Transitional Council has been recog-

nized by the United States and many other governments as Libya’s ruling body; it is composed of exiled technocrats and former Gadhafi officials. But rebels from other areas of Libya are wary of the NTC, and there are sharp divisions within it. It will have to add representatives from different regions and multiple tribes if it wants to unite the country behind it. It must also figure out how to incorporate former Gadhafi loyalists into the new system, lest they turn into armed insurgents, as happened with former Saddam loyalists in Iraq.

The challenge is mind-boggling. The NTC must rebuild the Libyan state from the bottom. NATO countries, in particular Britain and France, stand ready to help. But they, and the United States, have to be wary of undercutting the new government’s legitimacy. Already, NATO’s military support for the rebels — so crucial to their victory — has caused Arab Islamists to label them as puppets. This raises another crucial unknown: what role Islamists will play in Libya’s fate. Some years ago, Gadhafi crushed Libyan jihadists from the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group, who had been affiliated with al-Qaeda. But last year, as part of a government rehabilitation program, he released many of these fighters, who have taken an active role in the rebellion. One Islamist rebel leader is blamed for the recent assassination of Abdel-Fatah Younis, the former rebel military commander. If a new Libyan government alienates tribes or regional factions, Islamists will profit from their anger. On the plus side, Libya has huge oil resources and a small population, so even a weak or ineffectual government may be able to buy off the discontented. Or it may not. In Tunisia and Egypt, Libya’s two neighbors, governments don’t have such oil resources. Hit by a postrevolution collapse of tourism and trade, they suffer from high unemployment. The Arab Spring generated huge hopes among youth that their

To the editor: I say “NO” to special taxing districts. The companies will eventually more than make up for the expenses that are created when they build any establishment. The city population should not be required to help them maintain a zero balance at a quicker rate. Every business should take on an equal percentage for success or failure. I will not shop at those special taxing districts. I believe Lawrence citizens should help prove a point against this type of incentive by letting the city commissioners know we don’t approve of special tax areas and we should refuse to do business at locations that have the special tax incentive. Putting up signs after giving special benefits isn’t the answer. NOT giving them in the first place is. Roger Powell, Lawrence

lives would get better. These hopes are, as yet, unmet. If Libya’s economy rebounds, one million Egyptians and 400,000 Tunisians who worked in Libya before its revolution may regain their jobs. That would help tamp down economic frustrations, but not enough to appease rising expectations. Islamic political parties, with their many social-service programs, stand ready to capitalize on this discontent, even as a multitude of liberal parties in Tunis and Cairo fail to gain traction. The youthful Facebook organizers who proved so adept at rallying crowds to oppose their rulers have yet to figure out how to rally voters to their views. In Syria, too, the brave rebels confronting the regime’s bullets have no broad organization. Many are secular, but Syrian President Bashar al-Assad long ago squashed all secular opposition groups and their leaders. This guarantees that the strongest organized opposition on the ground will originate in the mosque. The victory of the Libyan opposition may reinvigorate the morale of many Arab rebels (although it’s likely to persuade Syria’s Assad to crack down even harder). Yet this victory shouldn’t delude us. We must recognize that those who struggle for Arab democracy will face a chilly fall and winter before they reach spring.

Yes, Virginia, there really is a surplus! While the federal government continues to drown in a sea of debt, several states are reporting surpluses, thanks to policies Washington would do well to emulate. Nowhere has the economic turnaround been more immediate than in Virginia. When Governor Bob McDonnell took office in January 2010, he was faced with a $2.2 billion shortfall bequeathed to him by outgoing Democratic governor (and now Senate candidate) Tim Kaine. In less than two years, McDonnell has delivered two budget surpluses without raising taxes or causing harm to the “most vulnerable.” Instead, he has judiciously cut spending. Last week, the governor’s office announced a surplus of $544.8 million. That is $234.1 million more than McDonnell told the legislature on June 30 he has saved state taxpayers. Call it compound savings. According to the Pollina Corporate Real Estate Study: “Pollina Corporate Top 10 Pro-Business States for 2011,” “Virginia is the unquestionable brightest star on the American flag when it comes to pro-business. ... Virginia is truly in a class by itself.” Nine other states made Pollina’s list. Republican governors lead eight of them. Anyone else see a pattern? Compared to the federal eco-

Cal Thomas tmseditors@tribune.com

nomic picture, Virginia’s statistics are astounding: In less than two years, McDonnell’s administration reports that it has added 48,200 net new jobs. As recently as 2009, Virginia ranked 35th nationally in jobs created. Significantly, “only 8 percent of net new jobs are government positions.” Virginia’s “6.0 percent unemployment rate is tied for eighth lowest in the nation,” though the Washington Times reports, “the state will likely have to borrow an additional $251 million ... to pay back the federal government for loans to its unemployment insurance trust fund.” The loans were necessary because of the economic recession and the aftermath of the Kaine administration, which ran out of money in 2009 and had to visit the federal trough. Last month, CNBC named Virginia the “Best State for Business.” In May, a Washington Post poll found that while only 31 percent of Virginians believe the

country is on the right track, 52 percent think their state is headed in the right direction. The Pollina study, according to the McDonnell administration, is “the gold standard for evaluating and ranking states based on 32 factors controlled by state government, including taxes, human resources, education, right-towork legislation” (this one is key because it reduces union power to strangle businesses with evergrowing demands for benefits), “energy costs, infrastructure spending, workers compensation laws, economic incentive programs and state economic development efforts. Two new factors — state budget deficit and state property tax index — along with a comprehensive State Report Card are new to this year’s study.” Gov. McDonnell has plans for the surplus: “We will deposit another $132.7 million into the state’s Rainy Day Fund. And we will ask the general assembly to create a ‘Federal Action Contingency Trust’ Fund that will help increase our ability to handle the impact of likely future federal reductions. I am recommending that $30 million from the surplus be used to initiate this fund.” At least a small portion of the surplus should go to state taxpayers who earn the money, which would be “stimulus” of a different sort.

The reason Washington — and especially the Obama administration — has difficulty replicating what is occurring in Virginia and those nine other states is because it’s incapable of abandoning a failed ideology. When old ideologies have proven bankrupt, they are mostly discarded and replaced with something new that has a better chance of working. But the liberal ideology that government can better care for you than you can care for yourself remains on life support, though clearly it, too, has failed. An old Virginia slogan says, “Virginia is for Lovers.” A new one might say, “Virginia is for business.” Jobs created in Texas during Governor Rick Perry’s terms are receiving national attention, but Texas didn’t make Pollina’s list. Perhaps that’s because, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, in Texas jobs in the private sector declined 0.6 percent while those in government increased 6.4 percent. Should our nation’s capital be moved to Richmond? Perhaps electing a Republican president in 2012 who thinks like Bob McDonnell would be easier and more practical. — Cal Thomas is a columnist for Tribune Media Services.

The Cool Kids at The Granada It’s a long, complicated journey that got The Cool Kids’ first album, “When Fish Ride Bicycles,” released, but rather than focus on an album that has been three years in the making, let’s instead focus on the subsequent tour, which brings the Chicago group here tonight to The Granada, 1020 Mass. The group’s approach to hip-hop is extremely traditional, with no gimmicks, voice effects or excess synthbeats. The group’s flow is methodical, and their lyrics are cohesive and intelligible. They’re joined by Lawrence’s Ebony Tusks, Kansas City’s Greg Enemy and Atilla & Gee Watts. The show is a must-stop for anyone who is a fan of quality independent hip-hop. Tickets are $20 at the door, and said door is open at 8:30 p.m.

KINGMAN — Sen. Pat Roberts and Kansas farm leaders toured drought-ravaged Kansas on Wednesday, witnessing firsthand the toll this summer’s unrelenting tripledigit temperatures have taken on portions of the state: Irrigated corn growing under the center pivot that’s fared so poorly it was good only to cut for silage, and dryland corn left to decompose in the field. The drought tour also revealed struggling crops in Reno County, where an alfalfa field yielded only one cutting with two or three bales, rather than the a typical three to four cuttings with dozens of bales. Outside the tour bus where the Republican senator from Kansas rode along with state officials and reporters, the temperature had already reached 106 degrees. It was a far cry from the air-conditioned comfort of the Hilton Wichita Airport Hotel where today Roberts and other members of the U.S. Senate Committee on Agriculture, Nutrition and Forestry will meet to hear testimony from

Kansans about the 2012 Farm Bill. Roberts, the ranking member of that committee, was joined on the drought Roberts tour by representatives of the Kansas Water Office, the state Department of Agriculture and the state climatologist. His tour guide, farmer Chad Basinger, pointed out the Conservation Reserve Program fields that had been baled or grazed — a welcomed addition at a time of tight hay supplies amid the drought. So far, the drought has cost Kansas $1.6 billion dollars in lost revenue, Roberts said. “If there is anything we want to preserve and strengthen, it is crop insurance,” Roberts said, adding that the tour demonstrates why farmers need a farm safety net. State climatologist Mary Knapp told people on the tour that September through October is winter wheat planting time in Kansas, and if the state

does not get any precipitation there is no residual moisture left to plant wheat this fall. Today, Roberts will be in Wichita with other members of the Senate agriculture committee for a morning hearing that has been dubbed “Look-

ing Ahead: Kansas and the 2012 Farm Bill.” The hearing is one of several field hearings held by the committee to hear testimony across the country as it drafts new farm legislation amid a cost-cutting mood in Washington, D.C.

Snyder, Haskell bonding It’s tough to show Gary Tanner something he hasn’t seen in his 29 years as a coach at Haskell Indian Nations University. “I think this is the only time I’ve seen a football coach get this far into practice and not have one player quit on him,” Tanner said. “He’s bonding with the kids. Not one has quit. I couldn’t do it. Any coach that I’ve ever known couldn’t do it. He’s just doing something right.” By “he,” Tanner meant long-time Haskell assistant coach Jimmy Snyder, promoted this season to head coach. Maybe the bonding comes in part Snyder from Snyder’s deep love of Haskell. Maybe it’s partly because of his knowledge of the history of Native Americans feeling like such outsiders in public education. Maybe he knows how to keep two-a-day football practices enjoyable. Whatever, Snyder is off to a good start with his players, who are psyched for Saturday’s season-opener against Trinity Bible College in Ellendale, N.D. at 1 p.m. The team leaves Haskell’s campus Friday morning for the 10-hour bus ride. Some day, Snyder will lack back on some of the boys on that bus the way Tanner reflects on Snyder’s arrival 19 years ago at Haskell, then a junior college, from Ed White High in Jacksonville, Fla., where he played for first-year Southern Miss defensive coordinator Dan Disch. “He had his big letter jacket on, looked good and I thought, ‘OK, he’s just a looker.’ But boy he put those pads on and he was a strapping linebacker,” Tanner said, his eyes on fire from the memory. “In fact, he knocked himself out hitting, he was so hard-hitting. I’m telling him, ‘Good job’ and he’s looking right through me. He had knocked himself out and he was standing right in front of me. When we got him to come around, he wanted to go back in there but we wouldn’t let him. He was back out there the next day.” A member of the Kickapoo Tribe in Kansas, Snyder received an associate’s degree from Haskell, an undergraduate degree from Kansas and his Master’s degree in education from the University of Oregon. He has a way of turning an issue from a negative to a positive, such as when asked about Haskell’s long history of excessive roster turnover on the school’s athletic rosters. “I don’t look at it as it’s unique to Haskell,” Snyder said. “Socially, there’s a trend.” Snyder stays on top of research on Native American education and speaks frankly about it. “The latest statistic I read is that 6 percent of Indian males go to four-year institutions out of high school, 46 percent go to unemployment, 30-something percent go to unemployment,” Snyder said. “We have the 6 percent, and they’re at a high risk of making it, even the better kids. Whenever we do turn that trend around here on campus, we’re doing something ground-breaking.” To reverse the negative trend, Snyder said, one must first understand the source of negative classroom vibes. “This is as told by Jim Snyder,

QUARTERBACK BRAD STRAUSS RUNS THE FOOTBALL during the Lawrence High fall sports jamboree on Wednesday at LHS.

Lawrence High jamboree kicks off fall sports season By Kyle Davis Special to the Journal-World

Lawrence High junior quarterback Brad Strauss contributed to every scoring play for the Lions’ varsity football team in Wednesday’s annual LHS Fall Sports Jamboree scrimmage, both through the air and on the ground. After Wednesday’s scrimmage, LHS head coach Dirk Wedd was most focused on Strauss’ uncharacteristic fumble on the second possession of the game, but still liked what he saw of his team. “He didn’t play at the level that he is capable of playing, but you

know what, our kids will rally around him and he’s not going to be perfect every snap,” Wedd said. “So we’re excited about the level that we’re at right now ... and we’ve got a chance to be a pretty good football team.” Strauss opened the game hooking up with junior Erick Mayo on a 59-yard touchdown pass before

turning the ball over on the next possession. Strauss recorded two more touchdowns, rushing for one and connecting with Drake Hofer in the back of the endzone for the other, and even got his hands on an interception in the 21-0 victory for the varsity team over the junior varsity. Wedd said his players would learn from the scrimmage. “We’re at a point where our goal is to get better every day and I think we got better tonight,” Wedd said. “And if we keep getting better, then nine days from now, we’ve got a shot. The wins and losses will take care of them-

selves if we work hard and get better every practice.” The LHS volleyball team kicked off the jamboree festivities with a scrimmage of its own, and after the Lions were one game away from the state tournament last season, Wednesday could not have come soon enough for senior captain Kelsey Kilburn. “I was ready for the year to start like in December when I was playing club volleyball,” Kilburn said. “I was just excited and my whole goal over the winter was to get better so we can make it to state this year.” Please see LIONS, page 3B

KANSAS FOOTBALL

Senior Rell Lewis working to stay in mix at RB By Matt Tait mtait@ljworld.com

The last time Kansas University running back Rell Lewis was on a football field during a live game came in the 2009 season finale, when he picked up 54 yards on three carries and one reception during a heartbreaking, season-ending loss to Missouri at Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City, Mo. Lewis, a senior from Muskogee, Okla., has been through a lot since then. In addition to adjusting to a new coaching staff

and enduring the pain of a 3-9 record a season ago, Lewis has dealt with a little physical pain, as well. Sidelined for the entire 2010

season because of a knee injury that hit him last August, Lewis said the time between that Missouri game and now seemed to crawl by. “It feels like a long time ago,” he said, adding that he wasn’t too impressed with his play that November day against the Tigers. “You sit a season out and it seems like a few years.” While Lewis rehabbed, the coaching staff brought in more players at his position. As camp opened, Lewis found himself in the presence of some of the best young backs the program

has ever seen. Instead of sulking and looking at that as a sign that he’s been passed by, Lewis went to work. “It don’t bother me,” he said. “I haven’t been seen on the field for a long time so I just gotta roll with the punches. I’m just glad that we’ve got a lot of competition at the running back position because it makes everybody compete and it brings out the best in everybody.” While most of the preseason talk is focused on sophomore

Mizzou sticks by coach as NCAA digs By Alan Scher Zagier Associated Press

COLUMBIA, MO. (AP) — Missouri athletic director Mike Alden is standing behind the school’s embattled men’s basketball coach — to a point. Frank Haith’s future has come into question after Yahoo Sports reported last week that a former University of Miami booster said he paid then-Hurricanes recruit DeQuan Jones $10,000 to attend the school with Haith’s approval. Haith spent seven years at Miami before Alden hired him in April. It was a decision that surprised and disappointed many Missouri fans, given Haith’s relatively low coaching profile and his 43-69 record in the Atlantic Coast Conference. Alden discussed Haith for the first time Wednesday at a kickoff party for Missouri football boosters. Asked by The Associated Press if he supports Haith, Alden replied, “We support the NCAA process.� The NCAA has asked Missouri

to not undertake its own inquiry but instead await the results of its broader investigation into the sweeping allegations by disgraced Miami booster Nevin Shapiro. Shapiro, who is in federal prison after being convicted of running a massive Ponzi scheme, claims to have provided cash, cars, prostitutes and other impermissible benefits to 72 Miami football players and other athletes between 2002 and 2010 with the knowledge of at least six coaches and as many as 10 athletic deHaith partment employees overall. Alden briefly touched upon the situation in his remarks to boosters, noting that Haith met with the Missouri basketball team several days ago to discuss the matter. But he also emphasized that the alleged violations occurred at another school, and singled out the returning basketball players

as “a great group of guys.� “He’s our coach,� Alden told the AP. “There’s a process that he’s involved with — that we’re not involved with — so we’re just going to let that play out.� Local radio ads promoting the Tiger Quarterback Club rally touted Haith’s appearance at the event as recently as Monday. But the coach decided not to attend to minimize any potential distractions, said team spokesman Dave Reiter. “He wanted the focus to be on football,� Reiter said. Alden said he remains in regular contact with Haith. The two even plan to attend a St. Louis Cardinals’ game together — a two-hour drive from Columbia — on Thursday night. The extensive report by Yahoo Sports on Shapiro’s claims includes two photographs of the booster with Haith — one at a swanky Miami Beach restaurant and the other showing the pair with Miami president Donna Shalala at a bowling alley accepting what Shapiro said was a $50,000

COMMENTARY

Punishing Miami should be about a fix, not famine By Greg Cote McClatchy Newspapers

MIAMI — Ever since Hurricane Nevin slammed into the University of Miami and wrought its damage, searchers have picked through rubble for signs of hope. Well, I found some Wednesday even as Sports Illustrated — delighting to play judge, jury and executioner despite the minor matter of the trial not being over — again called for the abolishment of the Hurricanes football program. That first happened in 1995, when SI’s memorably stark cover story declared, “Why the University of Miami should drop football,� the accompaniment an attention-grabbing though failed case put forth by senior writer Alexander Wolff. This week, the same Mr. Wolff, now presumably a super-senior writer, pens an open letter to Miami president Donna Shalala under the softer headline, “16 Years Later, It’s Time To Get Real.� The writer tells Shalala to “drop football, at least temporarily.� The story doesn’t rate the cover, bumped by the apparently red-hot Milwaukee Brewers. I call that progress, this weakening of SI’s periodic cry for the death penalty. Can we all just breathe deeply and wait for this thing to play itself out, please? Media brethren and enemy fans, set aside the collective gavel and wait to see how many of dirty booster Nevin Shapiro’s allegations are verifiably true. Does it look bad for the Hurricanes? Yeah. It does. But does it look death-penalty bad? Drop-the-program bad? No, at least not yet, despite the national rush to judgment that finds its new leader in the latest SI. I’m not being an apologist for Miami here. I have gotten more emails accusing me of an anti-Miami tone than of being a homer in the week-plus since Yahoo! Sports’ investigation found years of improper benefits to players. The university should move quickly, and transparently. Shalala and athletic director Shawn Eichorst owe fans and alumni more than prepared statements issued in a void. They should hold a joint news conference and face questions. Immediately, new coach Al Golden — faultless but finding this mess in his lap — deserves to be told whether at least a dozen implicated current players will be on the team or suspended, with the season opener at Maryland in a mere 11 days. Miami faces a fallout of likely penalties, and should if even a small chunk of the allegations prove true. But a death penalty by NCAA decree or self-imposed? Nope. It is pragmatically unrealistic for the financial damage it would wreak within the ACC. It would be unfair to the majority of current players who are not implicated in the scandal. And it would not be justified, based on what has been proved. The punishment Miami is more likely to receive will be enough. A probationary period that likely would include reductions in scholarships and a ban from bowl-game participation would decimate the program plenty and have a long-range effect. The Miami football program’s strong record in recent years in academics and in keeping its players out of police reports must count for something and be weighed against the rule breaking and damage one man wrought in the shadows. “We’re going to get this fixed,� Golden said the other day. Give Shalala and Miami, shamed to action, that chance.

donation to the school’s basketball program. The website also obtained telephone records showing 85 calls or text messages between the two over a five-year period Before the story broke, basketball spokesman Reiter told Yahoo Sports that Haith assured him “he’s had no involvement with this Mr. Shapiro guy. There’s nothing.� The website subsequently pulled that quote and replaced it with a school-issued written statement in which Haith pledged to cooperate with the NCAA but said was “instructed ...not to comment further.� “The reports questioning my personal interactions with Mr. Shapiro are not an accurate portrayal of my character,� Haith said in the statement. Missouri Chancellor Brady Deaton said last week that Missouri’s coaching search turned up no evidence of any potential wrongdoing at Miami by Haith, whose high character was highlighted by both Deaton and Alden when the new coach was introduced in Columbia.

Danica Patrick to announce move to NASCAR SCOTTSDALE, ARIZ. — Danica Patrick will hold a news conference today and is expected to announce her 2012 move to NASCAR. The Associated Press reported earlier this month that Patrick was finalizing a deal to drive fulltime for JR Motorsports in the second-tier Nationwide Series. She was also working on a limited schedule of elite Sprint Cup Series races for Stewart-Haas Racing. Patrick and GoDaddy.com chairman Bob Parsons will be at Thursday’s announcement at company headquarters in Scottsdale, Ariz. An advisory said Patrick will announce her 2012 plans while “putting the rumors to rest with the ‘real story in her own words.’� She has refused each Patrick week to discuss her plans as speculation has mounted she’s leaving the IndyCar Series. Patrick has driven 20 Nationwide races for JR Motorsports over the last two seasons and has five more scheduled this year. She finished third in the 2009 Indy 500, the highest finish for a woman in open-wheel’s most prestigious race. She has one career victory in IndyCar and currently is ranked 12th in the series standings. In 110 career starts, she has three poles and 20 top-5s. Although she’s winless in the Nationwide series, she flirted with victory last month at Daytona, leading 13 laps before the last-lap chaos dropped her to a 10th-place finish. “She’s way ahead of the curve,� Dale Earnhardt Jr., one of the owners of JR Motorsports, has said. “We’ve had the opportunity to put several drivers in that car, and her performance is right on par with all those drivers. We started out struggling and she had a steep, steep climb to go and she’s really come a long way. I’m excited about what the potential is with her going forward.�

Former Oriole found dead BALTIMORE — Former Cy Young winner Mike Flanagan, who won 167 games over 18 seasons with Baltimore and the Toronto Blue Jays, has died. Authorities found a body outside Flanagan’s home on Wednesday afternoon, and it was later determined to be the former left-handed pitcher. Flanagan was 59. The Orioles confirmed Flanagan’s death Wednesday night. Flanagan won the Cy Young Award with the Orioles in 1979 when he went 23-9 with a 3.08 ERA and five shutouts. He also played for Baltimore’s 1983 world championship team, Flanagan going 12-4 despite missing nearly three months with ligament damage in his left knee. He finished 167-143 with a 3.90 ERA, including 141-116 with Baltimore. After his playing career, he worked in the Orioles’ front office and did color commentary for the team’s TV network.

Padres’ Bell claimed by Giants SAN FRANCISCO — San Diego Padres closer Heath Bell has confirmed that he has been claimed off waivers by the San Francisco Giants, although even he is skeptical about whether he will actually end up with the defending World Series champions. “I feel pretty honored. They’re the world champs, they want me to be part of their organization,� Bell said. “But nothing has happened right now. I’m a Padre, and I’m pretty happy about that.�

San Diego has 48 hours from the time Bell was claimed to decide whether to trade the three-time All-Star, allow him to be claimed or pull him back from waivers. The Giants are beat up in the bullpen, with closer Brian Wilson and reliever Sergio Romo on the disabled list.

NFL

CB Talib meets with Goodell TAMPA, FLA. — Cornerback Aqib Talib has rejoined the Tampa Bay Buccaneers after missing one day of practice to meet with NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell about the player’s role in an offseason shooting in Texas. The fourth-year pro from Kansas University who’s arguably the team’s best defensive player is facing a charge of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon following an incident in March in which police in the Dallas suburb of Garland say they believe the 25-year-old player and his mother shot at a man. It’s not the first time Talib has gone before Goodell, who a year ago suspended the cornerback without pay for the 2010 regular season opener for violating the league’s personal conduct policy. Talib also was fined one additional game stemming from an altercation with a cab driver in August 2009.

MEN’S TENNIS

Djokovic No. 1 at US Open NEW YORK — Top-ranked Novak Djokovic is seeded No. 1 at the U.S. Open for the first time, followed by defending champion Rafael Nadal and five-time winner Roger Federer. Djokovic is having one of the best seasons in tennis history: 57-2 with nine titles, including at Wimbledon and the Australian Open. He’s seeking his first championship at Flushing Meadows, where he was runner-up to Nadal in 2010 and to Federer in 2007. The draw is Thursday. Play starts Monday.

COLLEGE FOOTBALL

Police search LSU QB’s home BATON ROUGE, LA. — Authorities searched LSU starting quarterback Jordan Jefferson’s apartment on Wednesday and collected a swab of his DNA in connection with a bar fight last week that injured four people. Jefferson was home at the time of the search. “He gave us 100 percent cooperation,� Baton Rouge police Sgt. Don Stone said, adding that Jefferson’s attorney also showed up and that authorities didn’t ask Jefferson any questions. There have been no arrests and no charges have been filed. If arrests are made, charges could range from misdemeanor simple battery to felony second-degree battery, Stone said.

COLLEGE GOLF

Team in trouble over nude pic LINDSBORG — Bethany College golf team members were awaiting word Wednesday on whether nearly half of their fall season would be wiped out because a nude photo of the team went viral on the Internet. Edward Leonard III, president of the small, private central Kansas college, announced Monday the team would not be allowed to compete in its first three meets in September. There are only seven meets, including the Kansas Collegiate Athletic Conference tournament, on the Swedes’ fall schedule. Norrie Steyn, a junior co-captain from South Africa, said team members had fun doing the impromptu shoot, which features 14 team members standing side-by-side, completely nude other than shorts around their ankles and strategically placed golf clubs hiding their genitalia.

KANSAS FOOTBALL NOTEBOOK

DEs Opurum, Agostinho emerging along line By Matt Tait mtait@ljworld.com

It’s still a little too early to predict how well Kansas University’s defensive line will perform this fall. Injuries to key players and the grind of switching over to the 3-4 defense have contributed to the uncertainty surrounding KU’s defensive linemen. But while it might be difficult to gauge the unit as a whole, defensive line coach Buddy Wyatt said it had become easier to identify the top individuals as fall camp progressed. One of the players at the top of the list is junior defensive end Toben Opurum, a former running back, who has emerged as one of the Opurum leaders up front. In addition to fine-tuning his leadership skills, Opurum continues to chisel his body into a pass-rushing weapon. Tuesday, defensive coordinator Vic Shealy said Opu-

Lewis CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1B

James Sims, red-shirt freshman Brandon Bourbon and true freshmen Darrian Miller and Tony Pierson, Lewis has not been ruled out yet. Last week, offensive coordinator Chuck Long said it would be unwise to count Lewis out because of his experience. Sims, the team’s leading rusher as a true

rum weighed in at 248-249 pounds — up from 240 last year — and was growing stronger by the day. While Opurum, who technically will play outside linebacker in the Jayhawks’ 3-4 defense, is one of the most visible members of the DLine, several others have started to make names for themselves, as well. One of them, sophomore defensive end Keba Agostinho, has even earned a nickname. “I call him ‘The Technician,’” Wyatt said. “You know he’s gonna be in the right spot, doing the right thing and with the right technique. He’s been very consistent but our goal for him is to be more productive.” Agostinho was one of the few freshmen who played meaningful snaps last season, though his season totals might not show it. While appearing in 12 games, the 6-foot-3, 253-pound lineman from Katy, Texas, finished with seven tackles — two unassisted — and was credited with one QB hurry and a half-tackle for a loss. Like Agostinho, Wyatt said the defensive line was starting to develop an identity.

“It’s still a work in progress,” he said. “We’re still trying to piece everything together. But I’ve been pleased with how hard they’ve been working.”

freshman in 2010, echoed Long’s thoughts. “Rell Lewis brings a lot to the table,” Sims said. “He has a burst to him, he can cut and read the holes and also pass protect because he has been here for a while so he already knows the game.” While Sims currently sits atop KU’s depth chart at tailback, the sophomore from Irving, Texas, emphasized Tuesday that he wasn’t keeping an eye solely on what Bourbon, Miller and Pier-

son were up to as the season opener creeps closer. “I respect Rell a lot,” Sims said. “Even though he hasn’t always been practicing, he’s helped me a lot, especially with pass protection. He gets me in the right spots and tells me what I need to do more and he helps me prepare for a game because he’s already been through that longer than I have.” With just 12 more college football games guaranteed to him provided he stays

Sack race One area of emphasis for the KU defense this August has been the importance of putting pressure on opposing quarterbacks. Last season, the Jayhawks recorded just 14 sacks compared to 37 by their opponents. In a 12-game season, that boils down to barely one per game and that, according to the coaches, was unacceptable. Beginning in the spring, and continuing into preseason camp, the coaches began keeping track of sacks and posting them for everyone to see. As was the case with KU’s wide receivers and knockdowns, the public grading lit a fire under the D-Linemen and the Jayhawks have been battling for as many sacks as possible ever since. “That’s a big one,” Wyatt said. “You get what you emphasize, and our goal is to get a sack one out of every 10 pass attempts.”

Head coach Stephanie Magnuson liked the communication, hustle and potential she saw in her team when the Lions put on their uniforms for the first time. The first thing Magnuson said to the team before the scrimmage was a reminder of last year and what needs to be different this year. “Last year we were so close to state and it still hurts to this day and we’re

NBA game for the Sacramento Kings in 1999-2000, and also played in Holland, Greece and France before retiring after the 2004-05 season, said he’s not planning on playing in the game. “I’ve not played professionally for seven years. I can’t compete against the guys coming to that game,” said Robertson, 34-year-old regional sales director for Goldman Sachs in St. Louis. “If they need me to step in, it’d be an honor, a pleasure to play. It’s summer. It’s golf season. Coach (Bill) Self understands that. I’m a golfer,” added Robertson, who is a 3-handicap. Ryan on Wednesday had news to report on his wife,

not going to feel that way,” Magnuson said. “So starting today, every time we put on that uniform, it’s 100 percent every time they step on the court and play with a lot of pride and practice with a lot of pride.” All LHS fall sports teams had a chance to be in the spotlight at Wednesday’s jamboree, being recognized for the first time in the new school year. Along with volleyball and football scrimmages, the boys soccer team and freshman and sophomore football players had their chance to scrimmage

on the field. The evening also included a performance from the marching band, introductions for the cheer and pom squad and girls golf and tennis teams and a one-mile run by the cross country teams during halftime of the football scrimmage. “We’ve got the fans coming out to watch all of the sports,” Magnuson said. “It’s not just us, it’s not just football, there’s cross country and soccer and cheerleading and everybody gets to participate so, you really get that feel of the Lion pride. It’s my favorite day of the year.”

Andrea, who won the 2010 Mrs. America contest and was first runnerup at the Mrs. World pageant. She won last weekend’s Lake Saint Louis triathlon and, in fact, is a nationally-ranked triathlete competing for Team USA. “She’s the athlete of the family,” Robertson said.

... Gooden and Hinrich likely will not be on hand. Gooden is celebrating his 30th birthday on the day of the game. Also, Hinrich’s wife is due to deliver a baby that weekend. ... No word on whether any of the former Jayhawks now coaching at North Carolina, including Roy Williams, will be on hand. ... Former KU coaches Larry Brown and Ted Owens, who are currently not in coaching, will serve as the honorary coaches ... Ticket sales continue today for KU students and the top levels of the Williams Fund. All remaining Williams Fund membership levels may order tickets starting Aug. 29. The public may purchase tickets starting Sept. 6. Tickets may be ordered via the KU Tickets Office online or by calling 800-34-HAWKS. Parking is free.

Notes: Most of KU’s current NBA players are expected to attend — and compete in the Sept. 24 game. KU’s current pros are: Pierce, Cole Aldrich (Oklahoma City), Darrell Arthur (Memphis), Mario Chalmers (Miami), Nick Collison (OKC), Drew Gooden (Milwaukee), Xavier Henry (Memphis), Kirk Hinrich (Atlanta), Darnell Jackson (Sacramento), Marcus Morris (Houston), Markieff Morris (Phoenix), Brandon Rush (Indiana), Josh Selby (Memphis) and Julian Wright (Toronto).

Depth chart delay? With a little more than a week remaining before KU’s season opener against McNeese State — 6 p.m. Sept. 3 at Memorial Stadium — and the promise of an updated depth chart coming early next week, Wyatt cautioned against getting too excited about what shows up in the early versions of KU’s twodeep look at defensive line. “We still haven’t solidified it yet,” he said. “We’re still trying to get everybody back and get the kinks worked out. They’re still learning and I think it’s gonna be maybe a couple games into the season

Lewandowski a D-End Wyatt said Wednesday that red-shirt freshman Pat Lewandowski, a defensive end from Blue Valley West High who returned from injury Tuesday, was working at his original position of defensive end. Moved to defensive tackle this spring because of a lack of bodies at the position, Lewandowski performed great inside despite

having little experience on the interior. “He really showed up well and it seemed like a natural position for him,” Wyatt said. “He does things really well instinctively inside.” At the end of spring drills, head coach Turner Gill announced that Lewandowski was moving back to defensive end. Wednesday, Wyatt explained why in greater detail. “Size and strength-wise, he’s still not where you want an inside guy to be,” Wyatt said. “And so that’s probably more the case than anything else for moving him back outside.” As for the idea of Lewandowski adding weight to his 6-6, 265-pound frame, Wyatt said the coaching staff would take a wait-and-see approach. “I tell him just let nature take it’s course,” Wyatt said. “Just make sure you’re eating properly, working out hard and you’re running hard. If you’re gonna be a 270-pound kid, then you’re gonna be a 270-pound kid. If you’re gonna be a 290-pound kid, then you’re gonna be a 290-pound kid. So we’ll let nature take its course and if he gets big then we know he can play inside.”

healthy, Lewis isn’t worried much about what could have been or never was. If he plays a little in every game this season and serves as the wise old veteran at the position, he’ll take it. If he gets just a couple of carries and goes in mostly on passing downs to help keep KU’s quarterbacks safe, he’ll take that, too. “That’s fine with me,” he said. “It’s my senior season and I’m just trying to do whatever I can do to help

my team succeed. If that’s my role, then I gotta do it.” Although most of the reps during fall camp have gone to the backs ahead of him on the depth chart, Lewis, 5-foot-9, 205 pounds, who paints himself in the Michael Turner or Maurice Jones-Drew bowling ball mold, said he enjoyed watching what the young guys could do. “I can’t really talk about each one of them individually,” he said. “But I like the way we have bonded together

as a crew. I think it’s helped all of us, and we all kind of know our different skill sets. We know who’s the most elusive, who’s more of a powerful back and who’s a switch-it-up back. With us all competing, it just makes you add a little more to your game.” When asked if he thought he still could earn a few carries before he calls it a career, Lewis chose an answer that resembled his frame — small, compact and to the point. “Yeah,” he said.

The Jayhawks achieved that goal in each of their first two fall scrimmages but fell short last weekend. As for the race for the title of sack master, that’s come down to a battle between Opurum and junior-college transfer Malcolm Walker. Both play the same position, and Wyatt said Walker was by far the loudest sack advocate and that he always was trying to make sure the coaches didn’t short him. He currently leads Opurum by a sack or two, Wyatt said.

before anybody really solidifies a starting role or a backup role or whatever. Guys have just missed a whole lot of time.” Defensive linemen Patrick Dorsey, Pat Lewandowski, John Williams and Kevin Young all have missed time because of injuries this month. All except Dorsey are back practicing now, though, something that Wyatt said was a case of good timing. “It’s been kind of frustrating because of the injuries and not having them there the whole time,” he said. “But we’re getting most of them back now and from the rest of this week into next week, we should be able to get ’em caught up.”

Kansas City took a 2-0 lead through three innings against Toronto ace Ricky Romero but couldn’t manage another hit with runners in scoring position the rest of the way. “When you jump out in front like we did, you want to win that game,” Royals designated hitter Billy Butler said. Still, against the red-hot Romero, any offense was welcomed. The lefty came in with a 5-0 record and 0.89 ERA since July 27, tied for the most wins in the majors while compiling the best ERA in that span. “We put three runs up on one of the best lefties in the game,” Butler said. “You can’t really say we didn’t try to capitalize on his mistakes.

Berkman wants to stay in St. Louis ST. LOUIS (AP) — Lance Berkman would like to stay in St. Louis, regardless of where the Cardinals finish in the standings. “I’m sure next year I’ll play somewhere,” Berkman said Wednesday. “Hopefully it’ll be here, but part of that’s not up to me.” If general manager John Mozeliak called Berkman’s agent to make a deal now, Berkman said he’d be all for it. “Oh yeah, absolutely,” he added. “This would be my first choice. The Cardinals signed Berkman to a one-year, $8 million free agent contract last December and he’s having a big comeback year with 29 homers, 78 RBIs and a .290 average. He’s been healthy, too, appearing in 114 games and making the routine plays in right field. Berkman’s future is among the big decisions facing the Cardinals in the offseason

and could hinge on whether Albert Pujols leaves in free agency. St. Louis also has a contract option on pitcher Chris Carpenter, who has made a strong rebound after starting the season 1-7 and is 8-8 with a 3.57 ERA. Although the Cardinals are fast running out of time this year, Berkman believes the Cardinals are not far away from being contenders. The Cardinals are 10-13 since acquiring Edwin Jackson and Rafael Furcal at the trade deadline and are 10 games behind the Milwaukee Brewers, who are on a 24-5 tear even after losing in Pittsburgh Wednesday. “Like I’ve said, this is a great group of guys,” Berkman said. “I think it has a lot of potential even if things don’t go like we want to, like we want them to this year. “I still feel like this is not a team that is rebuilding, it’s not a team that’s very far from away from being right

where it needs to be.” Berkman has enjoyed playing for manager Tony La Russa and disagrees with those who believe the manager’s intensity can make a team play tight. Instead, he said La Russa keeps players on task. “I think his intensity is only beneficial to us,” Berkman said. “It’s hard over the course of a long season to maintain focus and intensity like you need to be successful, and he supplies a lot of that. “The rest of it’s up to us.” Though the Cardinals have foundered, Berkman said it’s not a tight clubhouse. “I think you go around and even at this low ebb of the season we’re ready to come back and play tomorrow,” Berkman said. “Nobody’s going on suicide watch or anything. “We just know we have to start winning games in bunches.”

NCAA hits Bruce Pearl with 3-year penalty By Beth Rucker Associated Press Sports Writer

KNOXVILLE, TENN. — The NCAA said it wanted to send a clear message by slapping Bruce Pearl with a three-year show-cause penalty: Coaches are responsible for their programs. The sanctions announced Wednesday make it harder for the former Tennessee

men’s basketball coach to get another college job anytime soon. Pearl is prohibited from recruiting during the next three Pearl years, and a school would have to convince the

NCAA to change its mind if it wanted to hire him during that time. “As these allegations are becoming more and more regular, it’s very clear that a head coach is being held responsible for his program,” said Britton Banowsky, Conference USA commissioner and vice-chair of the NCAA’s Committee on Infractions. The NCAA said Wednes-

day it had punished Pearl for lying to investigators about improperly hosting recruits at his home and urging others to do the same. Former Pearl assistants Tony Jones, Jason Shay and Steve Forbes face the same sanctions, except they were only given one-year show-cause penalties for their own roles in misleading the NCAA. “Those who are not forth-

coming and not cooperative and unethical in their responses, the committee takes that very seriously, and they will be punished appropriately,” said Dennis Thomas, MidEastern Athletic Conference commissioner and chair of the Committee on Infractions. Pearl did not immediately respond to a call by The Associated Press seeking comment.

The Committee on Infractions was impressed with the level of cooperation it got from Tennessee during the two-year investigation into recruiting by Pearl’s program and the football program under then-coach Lane Kiffin. It chose not to punish the university beyond its selfimposed sanctions, which include two years of probation beginning Wednesday.

Cassel making the most of his chances By Dave Skretta Associated Press Sports Writer

KANSAS CITY, MO. — Trent Green knows about paying dues. He was hardly recruited out of high school. He threw more interceptions than touchdowns in college. He was drafted by the San Diego Chargers in the eighth round, which doesn’t even exist now, and couldn’t make it in the CFL, where he was cut after one season as a backup. It all makes him appreciate the path Matt Cassel has walked. “ M y big thing CHIEFS was, and it was the VS. RAMS same with Matt, you When: Friday, may only 7 p.m. get once chance,” Where: said Green, Arrowhead w h o TV: CBS emerged as (chs. 5, 205) a Pro Bowl quarterback in Kansas City. He sees a lot of himself in Cassel, who likewise has gone from a backup biding his time to a Pro Bowl member of the Chiefs. “It’s not like you’re a highround draft pick and you’re going to get lots of chances,” Green said this week. “You may only get one chance you’d better make the most of it.” Cassel certainly has. He spent his entire college career backing up Heisman Trophy winners Carson Palmer and Matt Leinart at Southern Cal, and then was drafted in the seventh round by the Patriots, where he found himself third on the depth chart behind superstar Tom Brady and veteran Doug Flutie.

Associated Press Sports Writer

KANSAS CITY, MO. — Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Brandon Siler tore an Achilles tendon during practice this week and is the latest to join a growing list of NFL players to sustain the seasonending injury. Siler’s agent, David Canter, confirmed the injury in a text message to The Associated Press Wednesday. He didn’t know which Achilles was hurt, but said Siler already had surgery to repair it.

Cassel worked his way from a backup to a starter in the NFL, something teammates said they respect. It wasn’t until the 2008 season opener — against the Chiefs, ironically — that Cassel finally got his shot. Brady tore knee ligaments getting sacked in the first quarter and Cassel came in to lead the Patriots to a 17-10 victory. He wound up showing enough that Kansas City traded for him in the offseason, and immediately gave him the starting job on a rebuilding team. Just like Green, Cassel had weathered every roadblock put in his way. Longtime center Casey Wiegmann worked with Green in Kansas City before spending time with the Denver Broncos, and is back with the Chiefs this season. He said there’s something special about a quarterback who pays his dues, something he couldn’t quite put his finger

“We’re both beside ourselves upset,” Canter said. Siler was competing for the middle linebacker spot alongside Derrick Johnson after signing with the Chiefs as a free agent. Siler had looked g o o d Siler throughout fall camp after picking up 44 tackles, one sack and one in-

Titans, Johnson closer to resolving holdout By Teresa M. Walker Associated Press Sports Writer

NASHVILLE, TENN. — Tennessee general manager Mike Reinfeldt said Wednesday’s meeting with Chris Johnson was beneficial even though no deal was reached to end the running back’s holdout. The GM expects to talk with the running back’s agent again in the “next day or so.” Reinfeldt and Vin Marino, the Titans’ vice president of football administration, met Wednesday morning with Johnson and his agent Joel Segal. Reinfeldt said in a statement he felt it was important to meet face to face. “I’m not sure there was any progress made, but I do think it was beneficial to meet. We were able to discuss several different elements of a potential contract, but there was no agreement on those topics,” Reinfeldt said. “I do expect to have another conversation with Joel in the next day or so to discuss things further.” Neither Johnson nor his agent immediately responded to messages from The Associated Press. But The Tennessean reported Johnson flew home to Orlando.

on but that differentiates those kinds of players from those simply handed a starting job. “Trent was a guy who had to work his way up, and when he finally got here, it didn’t change him,” Wiegmann said. “He kept working hard and trying to get to the top. And I played with Jay Cutler in Denver, where he was a firstround pick, and basically it was his job to lose. “Don’t get me wrong, I like what Jay does as a quarterback,” Wiegmann said, “but you just get a different feel from guys who had to work their way up.” Call it unwavering leadership, call it unquestioned respect, call it whatever you want. But Cassel developed it to the point where the rest of the Chiefs were willing to follow.

They went 4-11 in games he started his first season in Kansas City, double the win total of the previous year. Then the breakthrough in 2010, when Cassel threw for 3,116 yards and 27 touchdowns with only seven picks, leading the Chiefs to a surprising AFC West title. Now, the Chiefs will be counting on Cassel to exhibit even more improvement. Their schedule has been beefed up dramatically after the rousing success of 2010, and the growth of their 28-year-old quarterback will be the biggest reason that success is short-lived or sustained. “He knows a lot about football,” said wide receiver Steve Breaston. “In meetings and on the field, he’s really coaching me up. Getting on the same page and

things like that, that’s big for a quarterback, pointing out the defense and showing you want you want. You don’t just see what’s on paper, you see what the quarterback is thinking, and you can be really dangerous like that.” Todd Haley called Cassel “an extension of me as the head coach,” the guy on the field who runs the show. He’s been impressed by the way his quarterback has taken over the team. “Matt is passionate about being part of and helping take this team to high places,” Haley said in a slow, thoughtful tone. “He’s not a guy who is content too often regardless of how he does, so you know, he’s getting better every day. ... That’s what he’s doing, and that’s why I’m excited.”

Newly signed Chiefs linebacker Brandon Siler tears Achilles tendon By Dave Skretta

The Titans and Johnson have been far apart on an extension, even though Tennessee officials have said they are ready to make the three-time Pro Bowler the highest paid running back in NFL history. Segal was the first person Tennessee called when the lockout ended. Johnson has said he will not report until he gets a new deal — even with two years left on his contract — and missed all of the Titans’ camp, which wrapped Monday. The running back leads the NFL in yards rushing over the past three seasons and has said he wants at least $30 million in guaranteed money. Each time a free agent has signed a high-priced contract since the end of the NFL lockout only seems to bolster his pay demands. “CJ’s the best back in the game,” fullback Ahmard Hall said. “He makes everybody’s job that much more easier. You go out there, you just have to get in front of your guy, get a good connection with your guy, and he’s gone. Everybody’s seen it around the nation.” Coach Mike Munchak said the fact Johnson came to town is a good sign that they’re at least headed in the right direction.

terception in 12 games with the San Diego Chargers last season. “I don’t really know what happened,” said Demorrio Williams, who has been competing with Siler for playing time. “I just saw him land on the ground.” The Chiefs’ policy is to not discuss injuries, although they’re quickly stacking up. First-round draft pick Jonathan Baldwin hurt his right thumb in a reported locker room altercation with running back Thomas Jones. Fellow wide receiver Steve

Breaston also has missed some practice time, along with offensive linemen Jared Gaither, Ryan O’Callaghan and Darryl Harris, cornerback Brandon Flowers and linebackers Gabe Miller and Eric Bakhtiari. The Chiefs should be able to withstand the loss of Siler, who could also have contributed to special teams. Jovan Belcher has made 131 tackles while playing significant snaps the past two seasons, and Williams and Cory Greenwood are in the mix. “I think we have good

depth,” Johnson said. “It’s always tough to lose a linebacker, and it’s hard. It’s hard. But this is a violent sport.” Siler’s injury is the first significant one for the Chiefs, though hardly the first round the league, where some believe the NFL lockout has contributed to more seasonending injuries. The lockout wiped out organized team activities and the ability for players to use team facilities during the summer months, which some argue resulted in players arriving at camp out of shape.

Colts sign Collins as a backup By Michael Marot Associated Press Sports Writer

INDIANAPOLIS — The Indianapolis Colts are bringing one veteran quarterback out of retirement. No, not Brett Favre. The Colts agreed to terms Wednesday with Kerry Collins, making him the likely starter in case Peyton Manning hasn’t completely recovered from offseason neck surgery when the season opens Sept. 11. Collins said he has been given no indication that Manning won’t play at Houston. “Hopefully, Peyton will be back, but if he’s not maybe I can be one of the guys that can help this ball club,” Collins said in a conference call with reporters Wednesday night. “The biggest draw for me coming here was just being with a team that I have a lot of respect for and a lot of history with, and really to be with a great team and play with one of the greatest quarterbacks of all-time.” Collins agreed to a oneyear contract and acknowledged he could be talked into staying longer than 2011. Not everyone in the Colts locker room is enamored with the move. “We don’t even know him, we ain’t vanilla, man, we ain’t no simple offense,” receiver Reggie Wayne said. “So for him to come in here

TENNESSEE TITANS QUARTERBACK KERRY COLLINS PASSES last December against the Houston Texans. The Indianapolis Colts hope to bring Collins on to back up injured quarterback Peyton Manning. and be the starter, I don’t see it. I think that’s a step back.” Colts coach Jim Caldwell wasn’t available to talk with reporters about Collins, a player he coached at Penn State, because the official announcement didn’t come until after practice. Caldwell spoke with reporters before practice. But he struck a calm tone in a statement released by the team. “He is a veteran quarterback who has started many games and he brings dimen-

sion and depth to the quarterback position, which will be helpful,” Caldwell said. “He is familiar with our division and will make a great addition to our roster.” The move is another indication that Manning’s streak of 227 consecutive starts, including playoff games, is in serious jeopardy for the first time since 2008. Manning had surgery May 23 to repair a nerve in his neck, and the recovery has gone slower than expected.

ENGLEWOOD, COLO. — Nobody’s questioning Tim Tebow’s character or work ethic, just his readiness. The Denver Broncos have concluded he’s not set to start in the NFL, but that doesn’t mean they’re ready to cut ties with him. The latest twist in Denver’s summer soap opera is rampant speculation that the Broncos will try to trade or even waive the second-year pro from Florida whose popularity still trumps his polish. That makes little football or financial sense. He’s the only quarterback on the roster who’s under contract after this season. Earlier this month he received a $6.275 million bonus and his salaries through 2014 are very palatable. So, the Broncos can continue to have patience and see if this project that former coach Josh McDaniels Tebow thrust upon them might eventually pan out. Some of Tebow’s supporters are starting to see the Broncos as the bad guys in all this. Because the Broncos don’t share his rabid fans’ unbridled enthusiasm and blind faith in the quarterback’s ability to win right away, the feeling among his staunchest supporters is that the Broncos must have a problem with Tebow’s personality, not his play. Why else would they refuse to anoint Tebow, one of the most accomplished and beloved players in the history of college football, as the starter over Kyle Orton and Brady Quinn, two quarterbacks with losing career records who don’t share Tebow’s winning pedigree? Because Orton is better, by any meaningful measure, right now. And it looks like Quinn is, too. The standard response to criticism of Tebow’s game — or praise of Orton’s or Quinn’s — is to declare that Tebow is a hard worker and a great guy and those attributes should trump all this talk about messy mechanics and flawed footwork. Tebow has had a bad training camp. He never came close to challenging Orton for the starting job and appears to have slipped behind Quinn on the depth chart although he has two preseason games left to win the backup job. Even Adam Weber, an undrafted rookie from Minnesota, shows more smoothness in his throws sometimes than the former national champion and Heisman Trophy winner; like Wednesday, when he dropped a 40-yard touchdown toss into the arms of D’Andre Goodwin in double coverage during drills. There was even a Yahoo Sports report this week suggesting “some people in the organization believe that Tim Tebow is the fourth-best quarterback on the roster.” “Maybe they heard it from the cook, I’m not sure,” coach John Fox cracked after practice Wednesday. “We hold Tim in high regard. I think he’s got a bright future in this game. He’s playing maybe the hardest position I know in the NFL there is to play, and maybe in all of sport. He’s progressing fine.” Tebow only had two passes in the second preseason game last week. “He’ll get more opportunities in games as we go,” Fox said. “... Everybody in this building has high regard for Tim Tebow, and he’s doing just fine.” At any rate, Tebow’s the only quarterback who’s under contract after this season and he is signed through 2014. The Broncos are willing to give the experiment some time.

Advisory Committee taking shape at KAI have a major impact on the way KAI conducts its business, but one of the biggest changes comes in the department formerly known as the Chancellor’s Advisory Committee. At the final meeting of 2010-11, the board elected to rename the committee to better illustrate its purpose, which now that the chancellor serves on the board, is to work more closely with the athletic director. That name, the Athletics’ Advisory Committee, was unveiled Wednesday and board member Jerry Bailey, the director of educational leadership and policy studies in KU’s school of education, was appointed as its chair for the upcoming year. After the board voted to accept Bailey’s nomination, chancellor Bernadette GrayLittle thanked Bailey for his willingness to chair such an important committee. Bailey then requested that KU athletic director Sheahon Zenger reveal his likes and dislikes about the committee. “I had a similar committee at (Illinois State),” Zenger said. “And I think it’s one that will continue to evolve over time. But I like the make-up of the group and their enthusiasm.” Gray-Little whole-heartedly agreed.

“I don’t know if I know of any other group where people are as happy to be involved,” she said. In other news at Tuesday’s meeting:

I’m taking from personal experience. My grandfather went to Haskell in the 1920s and 30s.” That was a much different Haskell. “Haskell, it’s remarkable where we’re at today,” Snyder said. “It’s amazing when you look at the history.” Haskell’s lucky to have a guy like Snyder, a man who understands history and knows how to connect it to the present in a way that makes learning enjoyable.

Wednesday marked the first meeting of the new school year for the Kansas Athletics, Inc. Board of Directors. Fittingly, it was not unlike the first day of classes. The meeting began with board members introducing themselves to the rest of the group, even though all but one served on the board last year. Even the newcomer, student body president Libby Johnson, was a familiar face, as she sat in on the final quarterly meeting of the 2010-11 school year. Once introductions were made, Judy Pottorff, corporate counsel, handed out the board’s version of a syllabus. In this case, the packet of paperwork included general annual housekeeping items such as conflict of interest forms required by the IRS and the code of ethical conduct forms required by NCAA certification. At that point, the meeting began to more resemble what these things are all about. Policies were discussed, plans were formulated and agenda items were voted upon. Few of the things discussed on Wednesday will

! Zenger updated the board on the status of the Big 12 Conference, which, once again, is in limbo while waiting to see what action, if any, Texas A&M takes regarding its flirtation with the SEC. Zenger, who met with the other eight Big 12 ADs in Dallas on Monday, said the league remained strong and was waiting on the Aggies to make their move. “The nine schools remain committed to this conference,” Zenger said. “And one school has some decisions to make. We continue to meet and discuss things, both in person and by telephone ! The board approved a name change for the facility that houses the KU tennis programs. Previously known as the Jayhawk Tennis Facility, the venue now will be known as the Jayhawk Tennis Center, a move that already is reflected on the sign. “They just thought that ‘Center’ was more reflective of what they’re trying to do down there,” Pottorff said.

Purdue quarterback Henry tears ACL WEST LAFAYETTE, IND. (AP) — The Cradle of Quarterbacks is looking for reinforcements. Again. Purdue announced Wednesday that quarterback Rob Henry had torn the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee during practice a day earlier. School officials did not say how much time they expect

Henry to miss pending more tests. Just last fall, Henry took over the offense when starting quarterback Robert Marve tore the ACL in his left knee. Henry was listed as the No. 1 quarterback on Purdue’s depth chart since practice opened earlier this month. His absence could open the

BRIEFLY Vols dismiss DB KNOXVILLE, TENN. — Tennessee junior defensive back Janzen Jackson has been dismissed from the team. The player from Lake Charles, La., withdrew from school in February, citing personal problems. When he re-enrolled last month, Jackson declined to discuss the issues he was dealing with.

door for Marve, the transfer from Miami, to reclaim the starting job. But it’s unclear whether Marve is 100 percent just yet. Marve bruised his left knee Sept. 18 against Ball State, was cleared to play and then tore his ACL the following week against Toledo. Henry replaced Marve the next week.

USC’s Tyler returns LOS ANGELES — Suspended USC tailback Marc Tyler returned to practice Wednesday. Tyler participated in his first practice of the season on Wednesday morning, working with the Trojans’ scout team. Coach Lane Kiffin suspended the senior from all team activities and the Trojans’ first game last month after Tyler implied that USC pays its players during an interview with TMZ outside a nightclub. Kiffin says Tyler is still suspended from the Trojans’ season opener against Minnesota next weekend.

With the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 terror attacks scant weeks away, a slate of retrospective specials and documentaries awaits us. Discovery leads the way with “Rising: Rebuilding Ground Zero” (7 p.m.) airing in three- hour installments tonight and next Thursday. The Science Network will replay it in marathon fashion on Sunday, Sept. 11. ‘‘Rising” documents the rebuilding project at and near the old World Trade Center site, featuring a massive office complex of four buildings, a museum and a memorial featuring the world’s largest manmade waterfalls. It shows how artifacts from the destroyed structure have been incorporated into the new site and explores the stories of ironworkers, firemen, policemen and family members associated with these relics. Like anything to do with 9/11, “Rising” is filled with emotionally loaded memories, images and language. Such efforts are generally critic-proof, but it should be noted how the film’s narrative often seems overly laden with hyperbole and hackneyed phrases that have attended all discussion of that dark day for the past 10 years. Perhaps it’s time to find new ways to discuss these events. Films like “Rising” show us that we still have a long way to go.

Dear Annie: I had a fabulous time in college. I was president of my sorority, a peer mentor at our advising center and active in many organizations. I also was granted many awards and honors. I loved rushing around with little sleep and juggling many things on my plate. Now my life is a different story. I struggle with severe clinical depression and debilitating anxiety. After graduating, I took a job that pays well and I met a great guy. On paper, my life sounds pretty good. But my job makes me miserable, and I dread going into work. There are few compliments and a ton of complaints. We work six days a week, which leaves little time to maintain friendships. When I get home at the end of the day, I feel like a failure, and all I want to do is curl up in bed. Downtime creates anxiety, which triggers my depression and leaves me crying all day. I realize I cannot go back to the halcyon days of college and that it is unhealthy to keep looking backward. But I feel as if I am grieving for the life I used to have. How do I move on? I am on antidepressants and am seeing a counselor, so I am working on treating my depression and anxiety, but I still feel hopeless. — Wish There Was
