It’s official: Romney is GOP nominee By David Espo Associated Press

TAMPA, FLA. — Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney swept to the Republican presidential nomination Tuesday night, praised lovingly by his wife from their national convention stage as the “man America

needs” and cheered by delegates eager to propel him into the fall campaign against President Barack Obama. The hall erupted in cheers when Romney strolled on stage and shared a hug and kiss with his wife of more than 40 years. “This man will not fail. This man will not let us

down,” Mrs. Romney said in a prime-time speech that sounded at times like a heart-to-heart talk among women and at times like a testimonial to her husband’s little-known softer side. “It’s the moms who always have to work harder, to make everything right,” she said. And she vouched

firmly for her husband, who lags behind Obama in surveys among women voters: “You can trust Mitt. He loves America.” Earlier, the Romneys watched on television at a Lynne Sladky/AP Photo hotel suite across the street from the convention hall as REPUBLICAN PRESIDENTIAL NOMINEE MITT ROMNEY and his wife, Ann, wave to delegates at Please see ROMNEY, page 6A the Republican National Convention on Tuesday.

U.S. 59 project almost done By Scott Rothschild srothschild@ljworld.com

TOPEKA — The nearly threeyear long U.S. Highway 59 realignment project is nearing the end of the road. “We’re hoping to open it the first week of October,” said Kim Qualls, a spokeswoman with the Kansas Department of Transportation.

There is still paving, striping and signage work going on, Qualls said. She said some folks may see a particular part of the project and believe that it’s finished now, but they aren’t seeing the whole thing. The first phase of the project, which began in January 2009, entailed earthwork and construction of bridges for an 11mile four-lane freeway between

Lawrence and Ottawa. That cost $57 million. The second phase is the surfacing and pavement work, totaling $24.7 million. Currently, that is happening on the north end of the project, which is close to the southern city limits of Lawrence. A 7.6-mile stretch of the freeway in Franklin County — costing $63.5 million — was completed and ready for use in 2010.

Read Across Lawrence events scheduled

SELECTIONS for the 10th annual Read Across Lawrence include a children’s book, “The Cabinet of Wonders” by Mary Rutkoski, and an adult book, “Winter’s Bone” by Kansas University alumnus Daniel Woodrell.

By Alex Garrison acgarrison@ljworld.com

This year’s Read Across Lawrence program — the 10th annual — kicks off on Friday. And this year, organizers and sponsors with the Lawrence Public Library and Kansas University libraries also have planned a separate read-

Starting on Oct. 15, Lawrence residents may come home to be greeted by a shiny new trash cart at their curb. City officials on Tuesday announced a De Soto-based vendor will start distributing approximately 21,000 trash carts to Lawrence residents on Oct. 15. The final carts are expected to arrive at residents’ homes by Nov. 9. The trash cart rollout is part of a program that will require residents of singlefamily homes in the city to start using city-issued trash carts instead of standard trash bags or cans. City officials are urging residents to keep an open mind about the new carts. “We have definitely heard from other communities that use the carts that at first there may be a little bit of hesitation because it is new,” said Kathy Richardson, operations supervisor for the city’s waste reduction and recycling division. “But we also hear that in a few months residents are giving feedback about how they love their carts. They really are easy to use.” Lawrence city officials will be working hard to convince Lawrence residents. The city has launched a website at lawrenceks.org/wrr/ carts to provide basic information about the program. City utility bills, beginning today, also will include an informational flier about the new carts. Here’s a look at some issues city officials are trying to address:

Trash CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1A

do anything to receive a 65-gallon, standard trash cart from the city. All residents who are required to use a cart will have a cart delivered to them. If a resident already rents a cart from the city, a new cart won’t be delivered to that house. The household is expected to keep using its existing cart. Households who pay to rent a cart from the city will have their rates adjusted downward. A 65-gallon cart will now be a part of the standard monthly trash rate charged to households.

 If residents want a cart that is either smaller or larger than the 65-gallon cart, there is an online form residents can complete at the lawrenceks.org/wrr/ carts website. The form can be found under the frequently asked questions portion of the website. The form also can be used to request additional trash carts, if a household believes one cart won’t meet their normal trash needs.

 For those wanting to plan ahead, the standard 65-gallon cart will be 40.5 inches tall, 28.1 inches deep, and 26.7 inches wide. The city estimates a 65-gallon cart will easily hold four standard, kitchen-size trash bags. Households with the standard 65-gallon cart will have a monthly trash bill of $14.94 per month, which is

the same rate the city currently charges households that don’t have a cart.

 A 95-gallon cart will be 45.1 inches tall, 33.7 inches deep and 28.7 inches wide. The city estimates a 95-gallon cart will hold six standard trash bags. The monthly rate for households using a 95-gallon cart will be $16.94 per month.

 A 35-gallon cart will be 39.1 inches tall, 22.9 inches deep and 20.2 inches wide. A 35-gallon cart is estimated to hold two standard-size trash bags. Households that use a 35-gallon cart will pay $13.44 per month. City officials note the 65-gallon cart won’t take up much more space than a 35-gallon cart. Richardson said her department is hoping most residents give the 65-gallon cart a try before requesting the smaller 35-gallon cart. Richardson said people who have concerns about where they will be able to store a cart can call her department at 832-3032 to request a staff member visit the house to help look at storage options. The city also has a special email address for cartrelated questions: carts@ lawrenceks.org.

 Residents will be allowed to occasionally set out extra bags of trash that won’t fit into their carts. But Richardson said city trash crews will be keeping track of the number of times households set out extra bags. If it happens frequently, the city can take the household’s small

L AWRENCE J OURNAL -W ORLD cart and provide it with a larger cart. The household’s monthly bill will be adjusted accordingly.

 The city is reminding residents the new carts are expected to improve the safety of Lawrence trash crews. The city estimates an average sanitation worker lifts about 7,500 pounds of trash each day. The new system will allow the carts to be lifted by hydraulic lifts on each truck.

 The city will recycle old, unwanted trash cans on two days following the launch of the cart program. On Nov. 9 and Nov. 16, city crews will pick up empty trash cans placed at the curb. The cans should be marked with an X to denote they are no longer wanted by the household. The De Soto-based manufacturer of the carts will recycle the trash cans. The city, however, is reminding residents that trash cans still can be used for the city’s lawn waste service on Mondays. The city’s lawn waste and grass clipping program will not change. Households still can use cans, carts or compostable bags.

The new carts will be delivered in phases across the city between Oct. 15 and Nov. 9. Households should look for their new carts either on the curb or along the alley, depending on where the household normally places its trash. — City reporter Chad Lawhorn can be reached at 832-6362.

Abortion clinic wants documents returned

Go long

By John Hanna Associated Press

TOPEKA — A Planned Parenthood clinic in Kansas is seeking to recover records gathered during a criminal investigation of the abortion provider now that all charges have been dropped, one of its attorneys said Tuesday. Pedro Irigonegaray said he’s contacted the offices of Attorney General Derek Schmidt, Johnson County District Attorney Steve Howe and Shawnee County District Judge Richard Anderson since the criminal

case ended earlier this month. Irigonegaray said he’s yet to receive replies to requests that documents in their possession be returned to the Planned Parenthood clinic in the Kansas City suburb of Overland Park. The documents gathered during the investigation include edited copies of records from 29 patients’ medical files, as well as copies of reports on individual abortions performed in 2003. Irigonegaray said the clinic’s biggest concern is protecting patients’ privacy. Please see CLINIC, page 4A

Kobach denies comparing homosexuality, drug use By Scott Rothschild srothschild@ljworld.com

A BLACK LAB NAMED JUNE TURNS SHARPLY to race down a Frisbee tossed by owner Nick Kurtz on Tuesday in east Lawrence.

TOPEKA — Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach said Tuesday that he didn’t compare homosexuality to criminal behavior during a discussion of a Republican Party platform committee. “I didn’t in any way equate homosexuality with drug use or polygamy,” Kobach said. Last week, at the Republican National Convention platform committee meeting in Tampa, Fla., Kobach argued against an amendment to the GOP’s party platform that would have backed same-sex civil unions. A part of the proposal Kobach said he was arguing against said that government shouldn’t criminalize some-

thing that doesn’t affect another person. Kobach said that isn’t true. For example, he noted, that government criminalizes drug use and polygamy. “We condemn those activities even though they are not hurting other people, at least directly. So this is worded way too broadly for inclusion in the platform,” Kobach had said. Kobach said he was arguing against how broad the proposal was. Several media outlets, including the Lawrence Journal-World, reported that Kobach had compared homosexuality to criminal behaviors. But Kobach said that was incorrect, and that he was not equating homosexuality with either drug use or polygamy.

County to mull building code change By Alex Garrison acgarrison@ljworld.com

The Douglas County Commission will hear a proposal to change the building code for unincorporated portions of the county during its meeting tonight. The adoption of the 2012 I-codes will help bring building in the county upto-date and compatible with most surrounding areas, said Linda Finger, the county’s director of zoning and codes. Johnson and Sedgwick counties both use the 2006 version of this set of regulations, and they plan to adopt the 2012 version. Lawrence is working under the 2008 version. Douglas County’s existing code was written in 1997. The switch to I-codes may reduce insurance rates for some homeowners, Finger said. Other issues in front of the commission this week:

Finger will present the cases for several temporary business permits including one for a flea market at 1809 E. 1450 Road.

An executive session in which the three commissioners will meet privately with the county’s lawyer to discuss a land-purchasing issue. This meeting is expected to take about 30 minutes, and Craig Weinaug, county administrator, said that it’s unlikely commissioners will take action following the executive session.

A request for a loan for the Kansas Dinner Train.

A request for partial funding for maintenance of North 900 Road east of U.S. Highway 59.

Group files complaint Clinic against school district over records request

CONTINUED FROM PAGE 3A

By Scott Rothschild srothschild@ljworld.com

TOPEKA — A group that criticizes school funding has filed a complaint with the Douglas County District Attorney’s Office against the Lawrence school district, saying that the school district has refused to comply with the Kansas Open Records Act. In response, the school district issued a statement Tuesday saying it has appropriately complied with the request for information. The Kansas Policy Institute said it requested, under the KORA, payroll and checkbook information in Excel format, but the school district provided it in the more cumbersome PDF format. “The expectation should be transparency and accountability, not obfuscation and red tape,” said KPI president Dave Trabert. “Why would a school district waste time and taxpayer money to make it difficult for taxpayers to see how their money is being spent?” KPI said receiving the information in Excel makes it easier to sort information while PDF makes it much more difficult. KPI noted that a 2009 update on KORA by the state attorney general’s office said computerized information must be provided in the form requested if the agency has the capability of providing it in that form. KPI said the Lawrence school district provided information last year in Excel. “We’re simply asking that government agencies be open with Kansans about how their money is being spent,” Trabert said. “There were over 33,000 entries in the Lawrence checkbook last year, and asking someone to search those individually is be-

The Kansas Policy Institute said it requested, under the Kansas Open Records Act, payroll and checkbook information in Excel format, but the school district provided it in the more cumbersome PDF format. ing deliberately opaque in the face of a clear requirement in Kansas law.” KPI, which describes itself as an independent group that advocates free markets and personal freedom, operates the KansasOpenGov.org website, which provides information on government spending. KPI is often critical of increases in public school spending and of school performance and has advocated for large tax cuts. Despite receiving information in a PDF format, KPI said it was able to convert and post Lawrence data on its website. Lawrence school district spokeswoman Julie Boyle defended the district’s handling of the records request. “The Lawrence school district provided the information the Kansas Policy Institute requested in what is widely considered a universal file format for sharing electronic information across technology platforms,” Boyle said. “Adobe Portable Document Files (PDF) can be viewed by anyone, whether they use a Macintosh or Windows-based computer, through the use of a free PDF reader. Portable Document Files also can be converted, and according to KPI’s own news release, KPI converted the file to meet its needs.” — Statehouse reporter Scott Rothschild can be reached at 785-423-0668.

Statewide campaign rewards drivers who buckle up rence Memorial Hospital, said the emergency room treats about 1,000 adults and about 30 children involved in motor vehicle crashes each year. “The children are all in their safety seats,” Drees said. “It works. You just have to apply it. “The bottom line is, there’s less suffering, less injury, less death and also less money spent on health care issues when you buckle up. It’s just the smart thing to do.” The “Bucks for Buckles” campaign is sponsored by Safe Kids Kansas, the Kansas Department of Transportation and State Farm insurance company.

Seat belts save lives. That’s the message of an annual statewide campaign that started this week, just before thousands of motorists hit the road during Labor Day weekend, and ends Sept. 8. As part of the campaign, volunteers will be handing out dollar bills to drivers who have all occupants buckled up securely in their vehicle. They will be handing out a total of $8,000 in 56 cities across Kansas, including Lawrence, Baldwin City and Eudora. Those riding unrestrained will receive educational materials about the effectiveness of seat belts and child safety seats

in saving lives and reducing injuries. Last year, 382 people died on Kansas roads, and 50 percent of them weren’t wearing seat belts. According to the 2011 Kansas Department of Transportation Safety Belt survey, 83 percent of those surveyed ages 14 and older were wearing their seat belts. This compares to the national average of 84 percent. In Douglas County, the survey found 81 percent of adults buckled up — a drop from 84 percent the year before. Meanwhile, 90 percent of children in Douglas County were ap— Health reporter Karrey Britt can be propriately buckled up. reached at 832-7190.

Hearing set for man charged in veteran’s death A Douglas County judge Tuesday scheduled a December preliminary hearing for a Mission man who faces an involuntary manslaughter charge in connection with the February death of a 27-year-old Lawrence man. Attorneys said in court Tuesday they expected the hearing for Justin Paul Gonzalez, 21, to take two days primarily because of the dozens of witnesses in the case. Gonzalez is charged in connection with the death of Nicholas J. Sardina, an Iraq War veteran and a former student at both Kansas University and Kansas

State University, following a fight near 14th and Kentucky streets. Defense attorney Sarah Swain said in court Tuesday that she was still reviewing evidence and that she expected to consult with expert witnesses as part of the defense’s investigation. Lawrence police said Sardina died at a residence in the 1500 block of Tennessee Street the afternoon of Feb. 25. Police determined he was involved in a fight hours earlier in the 300 block of West 14th Street. Sardina’s girlfriend, Darcy Singleton, said in February that she had received a text message from Sardina at

3:45 a.m. Feb. 25 that said he had been involved in a scuffle and had a bottle broken over his head. District Judge Peggy Kittel during the preliminary hearing will determine if there’s enough evidence for Gonzalez to face a trial on the charge. The hearing is set for 1:30 p.m. Dec. 18., and the judge said she hoped it would conclude by the afternoon of Dec. 20. Sardina was originally from Clarence, N.Y. He was a sergeant in the Kansas National Guard and had served three tours in Iraq in 2006 and 2007 with the Army’s 1st Infantry Division based at Fort Riley.

“It is our hope that there will be no additional difficulties, and we can put this matter to rest,” Irigonegaray told The Associated Press. “Our patients feel the safest with those records returned to the clinic.” A spokesman for Schmidt did not immediately return a phone message seeking comment, and Anderson declined to comment. Howe said it’s too early to say exactly how his files will be handled but promised to protect patients’ privacy. “We’ll work with all the parties to protect everybody’s rights,” Howe said. Abortion opponents object to returning the records. Mary Kay Culp, executive director of Kansans for Life, said she plans to research whether such a move can be stopped. “There’s something really sad, depressing and frustrating to handing it all back,” she said. The clinic had once faced 107 criminal charges, including 23 felonies, alleging that it falsified documents and performed illegal lateterm abortions. At the time the charges were filed in October 2007, advocates on both sides of the abortion debate believed it to be the first criminal prosecution of one of the group’s facilities. The charges were filed by Howe’s predecessor as district attorney, Phill Kline, an abortion opponent who began investigating abortion providers while serving as attorney general in 2003. Kline lost his race for re-election as attorney general in 2006 but then served as Johnson County’s district attorney starting in 2007. He lost the Republican primary to Howe, also an abortion opponent, in August 2008.

Q:

Who is responsible for establishing boundaries between school districts, and what is the process for trying to get those boundaries modified?

A:

School boards set district boundaries and accept or decline requests to move them, said Jamie Shew, Douglas County clerk. If two school boards agree to change their district boundaries, they can then appeal to the state, according to the office of the general counsel for the Kansas State Board of Education.

CITY COMMISSION NOTEBOOK Design guidelines for Zoning code change Oread move ahead targets truck stops Lawrence city commissioners agreed to keep moving forward on a process to create design guidelines for the Oread neighborhood. Commissioners on Tuesday agreed to have the Lawrence-Douglas County Planning Commission study proposed design guidelines for the neighborhood next to Kansas University. Commissioners at their weekly CITY meeting were COMMISSION told a draft copy of the design guidelines wasn’t yet completed, but a consultant for the city explained some of the details. Scott Day, with Urban Development Services, told commissioners the guidelines do not focus so much on architectural details, but rather on building sizes, positioning of buildings on lots and appropriate ways to incorporate parking into designs. The document also makes recommendations for items to preserve in the neighborhood, such as some of the mature trees that give the neighborhood character. “There aren’t a lot of neighborhoods in the U.S. that still have that cathedral-like tree canopy on their streets,” Day said while showing pictures of the area just north of Memorial Stadium. “It is really remarkable.” The design guidelines ultimately will come back to city commissioners for final approval but not likely until next year.

Commissioners started the process of making it more difficult to build a truck stop in Lawrence. Commissioners began the process of changing the city’s zoning code to require that any truck stop in the city be required to first get a special use permit. Under the current code, some industrial zoning categories would allow a truck stop to be built without any special approvals from the city. Some members of the Lawrence Association of Neighborhoods had expressed concern that trucks stops could be disruptive to nearby neighborhoods. City planners said they were aware of no plans to build a truck stop in the city, and said such a development, in fact, was probably unlikely given that a major service center is located on Interstate 70 just outside of Lawrence.

Hearing for 9th, N.H. project set for Oct. 2 Commissioners agreed to set Oct. 2 as the date for a public hearing for incentives related to a project to build a hotel/retail building at Ninth and New Hampshire streets. City commissioners previously have given preliminary approval to about $12 million worth of incentives for the project. But the incentives, which include tax increment financing and a transportation development district, require multiple hearings. The Oct. 2 meeting will serve as one of the staterequired public hearings on the project.

REPORT

• A Douglas County judge has dismissed one count of aggravated burglary against a 31-year-old Lawrence man who was originally accused of entering two homes while residents slept inside July 31. According to court records, District Judge Kay Huff has ruled there was not enough evidence for Ronald K. Brooks Jr. to face a trial in the burglary that occurred about 4 a.m. that day in the 300 block of Northwood Lane. Huff after a preliminary hearing last week did order Brooks to stand trial for a separate aggravated burglary count for a second burglary that occurred about two hours later nearby on Woodlawn Drive. The judge also ordered Brooks to face a trial on charges of felony obstruction for attempting to run from a Lawrence officer that morning, a misdemeanor attempted theft count, and possession of methamphetamine or possession of ecstasy. In the Northwood Lane burglary, a woman testified to waking up and finding a man in her room. The suspect then ran from the house, but after the hearing last week, Huff said she wanted to review her notes because she said the evidence about identifying Brooks as the suspect in the Northwood Lane burglary appeared to be weaker than evidence prosecutors had in Woodland Drive burglary. Brooks’ defense attorney in the hearing claimed he was walking to work when an officer stopped him that morning and later arrested him. • Douglas County District Judge Kay Huff ordered a 30-year-old Lawrence man to face a trial on two counts of aggravated burglary and one count of aggravated battery for a February incident in which he was accused of injuring a Lawrence woman

who was in a wheelchair, prosecutors said. The woman testified at a Tuesday preliminary hearing and accused Jacob Paul Forbes of attacking her at her home March 23 in the 2100 block of Rhode Island Street. The woman said had a disagreement with Forbes over her not selling marijuana fast enough he had supplied to her. She said he entered her house twice without her permission and eventually took her laptop computer from her. She called police after the incident. Forbes was initially charged with aggravated robbery, but the charges were amended. Forbes also faces federal charges with dozens of other defendants in a major drug-trafficking case. Huff scheduled an arraignment in Forbes’ Douglas County case for Sept. 23. Assistant Douglas County District Attorney Eve Kemple said during the hearing the woman was granted immunity in the local case.

Sheriff Tim Morse said Tuesday that Clinton Lee McKinney is wanted after McKinney he was charged in a Jackson County District Court warrant with two counts of rape, one count of kidnapping, one count of aggravated assault and one count of domestic battery in connection with two incidents that

occurred July 26 and July 28 in Jackson County. Morse said officers believed McKinney was either in the Mayetta, Topeka or Lawrence areas. Matt Cahill, a senior inspector with the U.S. Marshals Service, confirmed officers with the agency were in Lawrence on Monday looking for McKinney, but he referred further questions to Morse. Sheriff’s officers described McKinney as an American Indian, 5-foot-11, 200 pounds with brown hair and brown eyes. Morse asked anyone with information on McKinney’s whereabouts to call the Jackson County Sheriff’s Office, 785-364-2251.

Romney to outline ‘clear vision’ for presidency By Kasie Hunt and Steve Peoples Associated Press

TAMPA, FLA. — His convention speech finished, Republican Mitt Romney planned to outline a “clear vision of a Romney p r e s i d e ncy” in a Thursday night address that’s Romney likely to touch on the storm bearing down on the Gulf Coast. Strategists described the speech in broad terms Tuesday and said they had not discussed contingency plans for changing the timing or content of the prime-time address. Hurricane Isaac hit the Gulf Coast late Tuesday. Romney has largely completed work on the speech after months of preparation, according to senior aide Stuart Stevens, who worked closely with the presidential contender to craft what is likely the most important speech of his political career. “It’ll be a clear vision of a Romney presidency, and very much from his heart about America, and why he wants to be president and what his presidency would be like,” Stevens told

KU mourns death of Edith Evans, wife of athlete Ray Evans By Andy Hyland ahyland@ljworld.com

The daughter of former U.S. Sen. Harry Darby, R-Kan., she earned a bachelor’s degree in education from KU in 1947, and was a life member of both the KU Alumni Association and the KU Endowment Association’s Chancellor’s Club. She married her husband, Ray Evans, an AllAmerican football and basketball player, in 1949, and the two were married for 50 years until his death in 1999. She was also a member of Women Philanthropists for KU and a longtime member of the Williams Education Fund for Kansas Athletics. “The passing of Edith Evans is a great loss to the entire KU family,” said Kevin Corbett, president of the KU Alumni Association, in a written statement. “She, along with her late husband, Ray, will forever be counted as two of the strongest KU supporters in our rich history of alumni leadership.”

A dedicated and loyal Jayhawk supporter and the wife of former Kansas University athlete Ray Evans died early Tuesday morning at her Prairie Village home. Edith Darby Evans was 87 years old. Her son, Ray D. Evans, is the current chairman of the KU Alumni As- Evans sociation’s board of directors. He said she was one of “the most genuine and nicest people I’ve known,” and recalled how she always seemed to remember everyone’s name at any kind of social event. She enjoyed sports, too, traveling to Florida to watch the KU football team play in the Orange Bowl in 2008 at age 83. “Ninety days later she was in San Antonio (for the 2008 Final Four), — Higher education reporter Andy Hyscreaming for us to get out of the triangle-and-two,” land can be reached at 832-6388.

TEXAS DELEGATES CHEER AS MITT ROMNEY IS NOMINATED for the Office of the President of the United States at the Republican National Convention in Tampa, Fla., on Tuesday. reporters traveling on the plane that brought Romney and his wife, Ann, to Tampa on Tuesday. Stevens said the speech, about 40 minutes long, would also include some criticism of President Barack Obama. “Overwhelmingly, a majority of Americans don’t want to vote for this president. You see that over and over and over again,” Stevens said. “It’s still a choice. There will

be an element of that.” Asked whether Romney would address the hurricane in his speech, Stevens said: “I think he’ll speak to it, yeah.” Isaac, which delayed the start of the convention by a day, now threatens Louisiana and Alabama as Republicans are set to celebrate Romney’s nomination. Stevens acknowledged that the storm could affect whatever political boost Romney might get

from the convention. Candidates typically receive a boost of public support after their party conventions. Polls suggest the race between Obama and Romney is very close. “This convention’s different because of the hurricane,” Stevens said, adding that conventions are later in the year than they have been traditionally. “I think if the election were held tomorrow, we’d win and win pretty easily.”

Romney CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1A

delegates sealed his hardwon victories in the primaries and caucuses of last winter. They ended the evening together in a VIP box just above the convention floor. To send Romney and ticketmate Paul Ryan into the fall campaign, the convention quickly approved a conservative platform that calls for tax cuts — not government spending — to stimulate the economy at a time of sluggish growth and 8.3 percent unemployment. Republican mockery of Obama began almost instantly from the podium at a convention postponed once and dogged still by Hurricane Isaac. The Democratic president has “never run a company. He hasn’t even run a garage sale or seen the inside of a lemonade stand,” declared Reince Priebus, chairman of the Republican Party. More than eight hours in length, the session inside the Republicans’ redwhite-and-blue-themed convention hall passed up no opportunity to broaden Romney’s appeal. Speakers included Hispanic candidates for office; former Rep. Artur Davis, a one-time Democrat and member of the Congressional Black Caucus; businessmen and women and former Sen. Rick Santorum of Pennsylvania, Romney’s most persistent, conservative nemesis in the nominating campaign. “Leadership matters,” declared New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, keynote speaker and not coincidentally a Republican from a majority-Demo-

Well, in the storybooks I read, there were never long, long, rainy winter afternoons in a house with five boys screaming at once,” she said. “A storybook marriage? No, not at all. What Mitt Romney and I have is a real marriage,” she added in an appearance meant to cast her multimillionairebusinessman-turned politician in a softer, more likable light. While there was no doubt about Romney’s command over the convention, the residue of a heated campaign for the nomination was evident inside the hall. Texas Rep. Ron Paul, who never won a primary or caucus, drew several dozen delegate votes. Earlier, his supporters chanted and booed after the convention adopted rules they opposed, but were powerless to block, to prevent those votes from being officially registered.

Opinion polls made the race a close one as the Republicans’ days of pageantry and speechmaking began in earnest, and the man tapped to deliver the keynote address set the stakes. “Conventions are always huge for a challenger, because they’re the ones introducing themselves” to the voters, said New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie. Convention planners squeezed two days of speeches and other convention business into one after scrapping Monday’s scheduled opener because of fears that Isaac would make a direct hit on the Florida Gulf Coast. That threat fizzled, but it was instantly replaced by another — that Republicans would wind up holding a political celebration at the same time the storm turned its fury on New Orleans, devastated almost exactly seven years ago by Hurricane Katrina. Romney’s convention planners said they were in frequent contact with weather forecasters, but they declined to discuss what contingency plans, if

any, they had to accelerate plans for him to deliver a formal acceptance speech Thursday night.

Hurricane Isaac makes landfall in Louisiana By Michael Kunzelman and Stacey Plaisance Associated Press

NEW ORLEANS — Hurricane Isaac spun into the southern Louisiana coast late Tuesday, sending floodwaters surging and unleashing fierce winds as residents hunkered down behind boarded-up windows. New Orleans calmly waited out another storm on the eve of Hurricane Katrina’s seventh anniversary, hoping the city’s strengthened levees will hold. Isaac, a massive storm spanning nearly 200 miles from its center, made landfall at about 6:45 p.m. near the mouth of the Mississippi River. But it was zeroing in on New Orleans, about 75 miles to the northwest, turning streets famous for all-hours celebrations into ghost boulevards. The storm drew intense scrutiny because of its timing — just before the anniversary of the hurricane that devastated that city, while the first major speeches of the Republican National Convention went on in Tampa, Fla., already delayed and tempered by the storm. While many residents stayed put, evacuations were ordered in low-lying areas of Louisiana and Mississippi, where officials closed 12 shorefront casinos. By late Tuesday,

We don’t expect a Katrina-like event, but remember there are things about a Category 1 storm that can kill you.” — New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu more than 200,000 homes and businesses had lost power. Ed Rappaport, deputy director of the National Hurricane Center, said Isaac’s core would pass west of New Orleans with winds close to 80 mph and head for Baton Rouge. “On this course, the hurricane will gradually weaken,” Rappaport said Tuesday night from the Miami-based center. He said gusts could reach about 100 mph at times, especially at higher levels which could damage highrise buildings in New Orleans. As Isaac neared the city, there was little fear or panic. With New Orleans’ airport closed, tourists retreated to hotels and most denizens of a coastline that has witnessed countless hurricanes decided to ride out the storm. “Isaac is the son of Abraham,” said Margaret Thomas, who was trapped for a week in her home in New Orleans’ Broadmoor neighbor-

hood by Katrina’s floodwaters, yet chose to stay put this time. “It’s a special name that means ‘God will protect us’.” Officials, chastened by memories and experience, advised caution. “We don’t expect a Katrina-like event, but remember there are things about a Category 1 storm that can kill you,” New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu said, urging people to use common sense and to stay off any streets that may flood. Tens of thousands of people were told to leave low-lying areas, including 700 patients of Louisiana nursing homes, but officials decided not to call for mass evacuations like those that preceded Katrina, which packed 135 mph winds in 2005. Isaac also promised to test a New Orleans levee system bolstered after the catastrophic failures during Hurricane Katrina. But in a city that has already weathered Hurricane Gustav in 2008, calm prevailed. “I feel safe,” said Pamela Young, who settled in to her home in the Lower 9th Ward — a neighborhood devastated by Katrina — with dog Princess and her television. “Everybody’s talking ‘going, going,’ but the thing is, when you go, there’s no telling what will happen. The storm isn’t going to just hit here.”

BRIEFLY Court: Discrimination in Texas voting maps SAN ANTONIO — Texas Republican lawmakers discriminated against minority voters while drawing new political boundaries, a federal court ruled Tuesday, rejecting a plan pushed by the state’s GOP leaders in a decision that likely comes too COURTS late to affect the November elections but is set to reverberate to 2014. In some cases, black congressional members in Texas had economic drivers such as sporting arenas freshly carved out of their districts, though “no such surgery” was performed on any belonging to white incumbents, according to the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia. “Anglo district boundaries were redrawn to include particular country clubs and, in one case, the school belonging to the incumbent’s grandchildren,” said U.S. Circuit Judge Thomas Griffith, writing the 154-page opinion for the three-judge panel.

U.S. home prices are finally starting to increase consistently. A gauge of national home prices rose in June compared with the same month last year, according to the Standard & Poor’s/Case Shiller index released Tuesday. The yearover-year increase was the first since September 2010, a year when housing benefited temporarily from a federal home-buying tax credit. The report also noted that all 20 major metro areas tracked by the S&P/Case Shiller index posted gains in June from May. That’s the second straight month in which prices rose in every city measured. “I think we have turned the corner on prices,” said David Blitzer, chairman of the S&P’s index committee.

Lawsuit rejected in Israeli court HAIFA, ISRAEL — An Israeli court on Tuesday cleared the military of wrongdoing in the death of a young American activist who was crushed by an Israeli bulldozer during a protest in the Gaza Strip nearly a decade ago, rejecting claims by her parents that the driver acted recklessly. The verdict came after a seven-year legal battle waged by the family of Rachel Corrie, whose death remains a powerful symbol on both sides of the IsraeliPalestinian conflict. The family said it was considering an appeal to the Israeli Supreme Court but wanted to examine the full verdict before deciding. Corrie, who was 23, was crushed to death in March 2003 as she tried to block an Israeli military bulldozer in the southern Gaza town of Rafah. The incident occurred at the height of a Palestinian uprising, a time of heavy fighting between the military and Palestinian militants.

New mileage standards would double fuel efficiency By Matthew Daly and Tom Krisher Associated Press

WASHINGTON — The Obama administration has finalized regulations that will force automakers to nearly double the average gas mileage of all new cars and trucks they sell by 2025. The rules mean that all new vehicles would have to get an average of 54.5 miles per gallon in 13 years, up from 28.6 mpg at the end of last year. The requirements will be phased in gradually between now and then, and automakers could be fined if they don’t comply. The regulations, announced Tuesday, will change the cars and trucks sold in U.S. showrooms, with the goal of slashing greenhouse gas emissions and fuel consumption. Automakers will need to improve gasoline-powered engines, and sell more alternative fuel vehicles. Critics say the rules will make cars unaffordable by adding thousands of

DILBERT

dollars to the sticker price. T h e “Corporate Average Fuel Economy,” or CAFE, Obama standards will vary by automaker depending on the mix of models they sell. The requirements will be lower for companies such as General Motors, Ford and Chrysler, which offer more pickup trucks. The standards can be lowered by the government if people suddenly start buying less-efficient vehicles in the future, although few expect that to happen. The administration says the latest changes will save families up to $7,400 on fuel over the life of a vehicle. The standards also are the biggest step the U.S. government has ever taken toward cutting greenhouse gas emissions, Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Lisa Jackson said. Tailpipe emissions from cars and

light trucks will be halved by 2025. President Barack Obama said the new fuel standards “represent the single most important step” his administration has taken to reduce U.S. dependence on foreign oil. But Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney has opposed the standards, and his campaign on Tuesday said any savings at the pump would be wiped out by the rising cost of cars and trucks. Already, automakers have committed to an average of 35.5 mpg by model year 2016 under a deal reached with the Obama administration three years ago. In the arcane world of government regulations, the rules don’t mean that each new car or truck will get 54.5 mpg. The average vehicle will get closer to 40 mpg in real-world driving. Automakers will be able to sell pickup trucks and less-efficient vehicles as long as that’s offset somewhat by smaller vehicles that already can get upward of 40 mpg.

Space inspiration It’s hard to think of a modern-day achievement as inspiring as Neil Armstrong’s walk on the moon.

I

n 1969, America had no greater hero than astronaut Neil Armstrong. People got up in the middle of the night to watch blurry television transmissions from the moon, including Armstrong’s first steps on the moon. People remember where they were at that moment in the same way they remember where they were when they heard about airplanes crashing into the World Trade Center only it is a positive memory, filled with wonder instead of fear. We looked at the moon with different eyes, knowing that, as we gazed, there were real men hopping around on the lunar surface. It was surreal but inspiring. If we could do this, what other accomplishments would come next? Much has changed since that time. The space shuttles have taken their last flights, and although unmanned spacecraft still are setting scientific milestones, the nation’s space program has lost much of its ability to inspire. After years outside the public eye, Neil Armstrong resurfaced a couple of years to ago to decry the cancellation of NASA’s program to send astronauts back to the moon and express skepticism that relying on commercial companies would be a winning strategy. Last September, he told a U.S. House committee that NASA “must find ways of restoring hope and confidence to a confused and disconsolate work force.” Perhaps it isn’t a prudent choice right now for America to commit the financial resources necessary to renew manned spaceflight. It may not have been a practical choice in the 1960s, but the accomplishments of that era were a “giant leap for mankind” and an inspiration to the nation that seems to be sorely lacking today.

Errant alarm U.S. Bank’s experience with a fire alarm last weekend should act as a warning to other downtown businesses.

I

t’s good that entertainers taking part in last weekend’s Busker Festival helped turn a blaring fire alarm at U.S. Bank into part of the show, but Saturday’s incident points out the need for the bank and other local businesses to better prepare for such situations. A malfunctioning fire alarm at U.S. Bank’s central location, at Ninth and Massachusetts street, emitted a shrill alarm from about 9 a.m. to about 3:30 p.m. Saturday. This would have been a bad situation on any Saturday in downtown Lawrence, but it was especially problematic last Saturday because Busker Festival events were scheduled to take place in what has become a popular performance space directly in front of the bank. Bank officials said they were working hard to shut off the alarm, but the fact that it took more than six hours to accomplish that task confirms the need for action announced by a U.S. Bancorp official in Minneapolis, who said “We are strengthening our procedures.” This situation undoubtedly took U.S. Bank off-guard, and bank officials aren’t likely to allow a repeat of last Saturday’s incident. However, it’s a good reminder to other businesses, especially downtown businesses, to get to know their alarm systems and how to deal with similar malfunctions as quickly as possible.

Has Romney given up on Hispanics? One of the key things to watch in this week’s Republican national convention in Tampa is whether the Romney-Ryan ticket will be able to connect with Hispanics and improve its dismal approval ratings among Latino voters. There are some things they could do — but I doubt they will. According to an NBC News/ Wall Street Journal/Telemundo poll of Hispanic voters released last week, the first that was conducted after presumptive Republican candidate Mitt Romney picked Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wis., as his running mate, President Barack Obama leads Romney by a whopping

Andres Oppenheimer aoppenheimer@miamiherald.com

Most likely, the Romney team believes the nationwide Hispanic vote is irrelevant, since most Latinos live in states such as New York and California that will vote Democrat anyway.” 63 percent to 28 percent among Latino voters. To make things worse for Romney, the Republican platform scheduled to be approved at the convention has adopted a hard line on immigration, calling among other things for a fence along the entire U.S.-Mexico border, ending in-state tuition for undocumented immigrants, and prohibiting so-called sanctuary-cities that accept people without immigration papers. While the platform will include language supporting a guest-worker program, anti-immigration extremists persuaded the Platform Committee to use the term “illegal alien” instead of “illegal immigrant” throughout the document, according to

an Oct. 22 Tampa Bay Times article. “Illegal alien” is a term that many see as dehumanizing undocumented immigrants. In an effort to win over more Hispanics — and get closer to the 40 percent of the Hispanic vote that former President George W. Bush got in 2004, or the 31 percent that former Republican candidate Sen. John Mc Cain got in 2008 — the Republican campaign is scheduled to feature an impressive lineup of Latino politicians at the convention. (There will be not one single Latino performer, though, according to the convention’s entertainment lineup announced Friday.) Florida Sen. Marco Rubio is scheduled to introduce Romney on Thursday night, while Nevada Governor Brian Sandoval, Texas Senate candidate Ted Cruz, and Puerto Rico Gov. Luis Fortuno and his wife Luisa are scheduled to speak Monday night, and New Mexico Gov. Susana Martinez is to speak Tuesday night. The Latino speakers will try to project the image of the GOP as a party of diversity and economic opportunity, and they will seek to paint a picture of Romney as a friend of Hispanics, Republican officials say. Their main goal will be to counteract Romney’s image among many Hispanics as a multi-millionaire who

is a candidate of the rich, and whose anti-immigration rhetoric often comes across as hostile to all Latinos. Among the things that Romney could do:

 He could make headlines, and show some spine, by chastising anti-immigration extremists within his party who keep perpetuating the myth that we can deport up to 12 million undocumented residents, and by taking distance from his fellow Republicans who claim, among other things, that undocumented immigrants bring dangerous diseases to this country.

 He should acknowledge that many “illegal” immigrants enter this country illegally because, under the outdated current immigration rules, they can’t obtain a legal entry visa to work in jobs that Americans won’t take.

 He could state that, if elected, he would not rescind Obama’s recent executive action to grant a two-year temporary residency to up to 1.7 million undocumented Dream Act-eligible students who were brought to the country by their parents as infants.

 He could shift away from his previous calls for “self-deportation” of all undocumented immigrants — a plan that Latino leaders say would amount to making life impossible for undocumented residents until they leave the country voluntarily, and that would in effect hurt all

Court knowledge is lacking Last week a popular legal blog, Findlaw.com, released the results of a survey it had done designed to test the average American’s knowledge of the U.S. Supreme Court. Those findings were both remarkable and depressing. Findlaw.com took a random survey by telephone of 1,000 people about the Supreme Court. They discovered that the vast majority of Americans were unable to name the justices. Chief Justice Roberts was best known; 20 percent of the people surveyed knew his name. Justices Scalia and Thomas were known to 16 percent of those called; Justice Breyer was known to only 3 percent and the recognition percentage of the other justices fell in between. The U.S. Supreme Court plays a powerful role — some say too powerful — and the decisions of the justices affect virtually every aspect of our daily lives. We are in the midst of a presidential election in which one of the most important issues is the Affordable Care Act and last spring’s Supreme Court decision on the legality of the act. The election process itself has been massively influenced by an earlier Supreme Court decision on campaign finance: Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission. Perhaps, the most significant social issue in American politics today, abortion, centers on the Supreme Court’s decision in Roe v. Wade. There are few areas in American society and politics that have not been influenced by the U.S. Supreme Court. The nine justices of the

Supreme Court are, perhaps, the most powerful men and women in American government and, certainly, are the most powerful non-elected American officials, and yet, according to the Findlaw. com survey, most Americans don’t even know their names. If Americans cannot name the justices of the Supreme Court, one is forced to ask what else they don’t know about the court. To my mind this is ultimately an issue of insufficient education. When I was in school in New York in the 1950s and 1960s, every student was required to study what was then called “civics” both in elementary school and in high school. We studied the presidency, Congress and the Supreme Court. We were required to learn the names not only of the presidents but also the Supreme Court justices. We read the Constitution. In fact, I suspect that my fascination with law, a fascination that ultimately led to my becoming a lawyer and a law professor, began in those

civics classes. Every American citizen has an obligation to be informed about our political and legal system. Only in this way can we fully and appropriately exercise our political rights. An uninformed citizenry cannot vote intelligently or even participate effectively in political discourse. The whole purpose of the First Amendment is to foster the free flow of information so that citizens can be fully informed. The results of the Findlaw. com survey are shocking and depressing. To me they signal that we are not teaching our children adequately about the most important aspects of our national governance. Of course, this survey is not the first to point out how little the average American knows about his or her government, but the very fact that this public ignorance continues today is shocking in itself. I think that every teacher and educational administrator should look at their school curricula to see how they can better educate their students about our government. I think that every legislator should ask whether our educational standards are tough enough in these areas. I think that every parent should be sure that their children are learning the basic facts of American government. Let us hope that the next survey done by Findlaw.com or another group interested in Americans’ knowledge of government and law will show better results. — Mike Hoeflich, a distinguished professor in the Kansas University School of Law, writes a regular column for the Journal-World.

Hispanics regardless of their legal status. My opinion: The fact that Romney picked Ryan over several Spanish speakers — including Rubio and Ohio Sen. Rob Portman — as his running mate, that he made his pre-convention foreign policy tour to Europe and Israel without even stopping in Mexico, that he didn’t even mention Hispanic or Latin Americanrelated issues during a recent stop in Miami, make me think that his campaign has given up on the Hispanic vote. Most likely, the Romney team believes the nationwide Hispanic vote is irrelevant, since most Latinos live in states such as New York and California that will vote Democrat anyway. Romney will thus mostly target Hispanics in a handful of swing states, such as Florida, and launch a negative campaign blaming Obama for worsening unemployment among Hispanics in hopes that many Latinos will remain home on Election Day. Barring more economic bad news, I doubt this will work. Romney’s decision to bank his political future on his party’s anti-immigration right wing makes him come across as no friend of Latinos. It will cost him to lose the Hispanic vote — and perhaps the election, too. — Andres Oppenheimer is a Latin America correspondent for the Miami Herald.

PUBLIC FORUM

Pool complaint To the editor: I have lived in Lawrence for over 30 years and worked downtown for 20 years. I no longer work in town, but I continue to watch the downward spiral of businesses and poor decision-making by our wonderful City Commission. One of the most poorly run operations in town (if not the country) is the city’s swimming pool. I will never understand why a city pool does not open until 1 p.m. We spent millions of dollars renovating this facility and yet even in one of the hottest summers on record, the city does not provide a place to cool off or take our kids until 1 p.m.! I have heard the excuse that the mornings are reserved for swimming lessons, but this is ridiculous and could easily be scheduled to accommodate an earlier opening of, say, 11 a.m. Besides, last time I checked there are no lessons on the weekends when the pool is the busiest. Now the city wants to close the pool before Labor Day! There is not another pool in this country that closes before Labor Day. Yet another excuse provided for this brilliant idea is that there aren’t enough lifeguards. I personally know several lifeguards that would have loved the hours. I guess I will have to find something else to do Labor Day weekend, but at least the dogs in town will have a place to swim and that is way more important apparently. Somebody please wake up and let us use the pool we have spent all this money on. Wally Wondrack Lawrence

KANSAS FOOTBALL

Tom Keegan tkeegan@ljworld.com

Self’s test: Give KU guards options Interchangeable guards capable of initiating and leading the offense have been as much a part of Bill Self’s tenure as Kansas University basketball coach as sarcastic one-liners and 30-win seasons. Having Russell Robinson, Mario Chalmers and Sherron Collins on the same team meant Self always had two point guards on the floor on the 2008 nationalchampionship team. Tyshawn Taylor and Elijah Johnson, both hybrid guards, led Kansas all the way to the 2012 national-title game. Outlet passers didn’t have to search for just the right guy to lead the break. They had options. Self’s 10th Kansas team features a deep frontcourt stocked with skilled big men, athletic bodies, shot-blockers, bangers and shooters. It’s in the backcourt where this edition will have a different look than his last seven teams. “We’ve got some talented kids back there, but getting the pieces to fit, it’s a lot easier making the pieces fit if you’re playing with two point guards than it is when you’re playing maybe with half a point guard,” Self said. “To put our best team out there right now, you’re looking at a team that’s not a great ballhandling and passing team. There’s going to be some pressure on Elijah to play well this year.” It’s not too difficult to find reasons to believe Johnson will be up to the task. He’s a blur leading the break, has a good feel for where the ball should go, has a nice passing touch and limits careless turnovers. After that, when looking at the likely starting five of Johnson, Ben McLemore, Travis Releford, Perry Ellis and Jeff Withey, it’s a little unsettling to try to identify the second-best ballhandler. “It’s probably Travis,” Self said. “But Ben’s getting better. But that’s the whole thing, we’ve always had guys who can make plays out there. Even on our championship team, we had three point guards out of our four perimeter players.” Taylor had his wild moments, but he had Johnson’s steadying influence on which he banked. “Those two combined were terrific,” Self said. “When you’re taking Tyshawn out of the equation, and adding Ben as far as playing the majority of the minutes, you gain so much in maybe shooting and size and that kind of stuff, but you do lose that guy who can just break a defense down and go make a play. That’s why Elijah has to get better and I think he will.” Sophomore Naadir Tharpe and talented but wild freshman Anrio Adams will push for time backing up Johnson and at times playing alongside him. “Right now if I was nervous about a position, it would be our point-guard play, just because it’s not as natural for Elijah, Naadir’s unproven and Anrio’s never done it,” Self said. Naturally, Self’s everintense mind is pondering ways to maximize the

KANSAS UNIVERSITY NEWCOMERS JORDAN TAVAI (9) AND ASLAM STERLING (77) WILL START their first games at KU, coach Charlie Weis announced Tuesday. Tavai, a defensive tackle, and Sterling, an offensive guard, are just two of 14 new arrivals on the Jayhawks’ two-deep for Saturday’s game against South Dakota State.

Big linemen among new arrivals to earn starting jobs By Matt Tait mtait@ljworld.com

Two of Kansas University team’s most recent arrivals officially became starters on Tuesday, when KU football coach Charlie Weis released the first depth chart of the regular season. Offensive lineman Aslam Sterling was penciled in as the starter at right guard and defensive lineman Jordan Tavai was tapped as the top option at nose tackle. The question now is: Does the fact that both guys were able to work their way into the starting lineup in less than a month say more about their ability or the team they joined? “I think it says a lot about those guys,” senior offensive lineman Duane Zlatnik said. “I saw film on them both before

DEPTH CHART See KU football’s first depth chart of the regular season, including 14 new arrivals as starters or backups. Page 4B they came here and I knew they were gonna come in and compete right away. The best players are gonna play.” In the case of Tavai, a 6-foot-3, 290-pound juniorcollege transfer from El Camino, Calif., that was exactly the explanation Weis gave. “He’s been one of our best guys in his brief time here,” Weis said of Tavai. Not only is Tavai listed as the starting nose tackle, he also is listed as a potential back-up at both defensive end spots. The reason? Weis said he’s the one guy on the ros-

ter who could start inside and transition outside effortlessly. For Sterling, a 6-foot-5, 348-pound monster from Nassau Community College in New York, the move has been just the opposite. After spending most of his three weeks in town at tackle, Sterling began working at right guard early last week. “I didn’t really expect to go play right guard,” Sterling said. “But I’m starting, so I’m happy.” The move, though challenging, has not been that difficult for Sterling. For starters, he has previous experience at the position and also has a built-in advantage. “When you’re moving from right tackle to right guard, you know what the guy next to you is doing, so it’s not that bad,” he said. Both Weis and offensive

line coach Tim Grunhard said putting Sterling at guard and allowing junior Gavin Howard to play right tackle gives KU’s O-line the best shot for early success. “He’s a big road-grader, so we’re excited about seeing what he can do,” Grunhard said. Added Weis: “We’ve settled the offensive line down. Instead of there being roving parts, we’ve settled it down. Gavin and (junior) Riley (Spencer) have settled down at right tackle, and Aslam and (junior) Randall (Dent) at right guard. I think you should expect to see all four of those guys playing in the game.” While Sterling’s size — he’s down about 20 pounds from his reporting weight — is unmatched on the KU roster, his hard work is what earned him Please see FOOTBALL, page 4B

LAWRENCE HIGH DEFENDER DALEN REED BATTLES FOR THE BALL with Topeka High forward Garet Campion during the first half on Tuesday at LHS.

LHS soccer routs Topeka, 6-0 By Benton Smith basmith@ljworld.com

Nothing inspires change quite like falling victim to a shutout. After Lawrence High’s boys soccer team failed to score in its season-opening loss Friday, coach Mike Murphy and the Lions discussed the need for generating some offense. To foster those efforts, Murphy started three forwards in the Lions’ formation, instead of two. With seniors Gavin FischPlease see GUARDS, page 4B er, Robert Lyan and Luke

Matthews up top Tuesday night, LHS spread out Topeka’s defense and had no trouble forging a 6-0 home victory. Possession wasn’t necessarily an issue for Lawrence in its 1-0 loss to Manhattan four days earlier, but Matthews, who scored the game’s final goal in the 77th minute, said the change made an impact. “That gave us a lot more offense and made us able to play through the wings more and get the ball out wide,” Matthews said.

Murphy isn’t sure if the formation will stick, though, with teams better than THS (0-1) likely more capable of exploiting it. Still, it did the trick in the Lions’ first win of the year. That old cliche of the best defense being a good offense, Murphy said, applied for Lawrence (1-1). “If we control the ball, if we possess and we run the ball back on their half, that’s the best way to play defense,” the third-year LHS coach said, noting the Lions Please see LHS, page 4B

KANSAS CITY, MO. (AP) — Mike Moustakas had three hits and three RBIs and the Kansas City Royals roughed up Justin Verlander in a 9-8 victory over the Detroit Tigers on Tuesday night. Verlander, the reigning AL MVP and Cy Young Award winner, was charged with eight earned runs, matching his career high, in 5 2-3 innings. It was the third time in Verlander’s career he had surrendered eight earned runs and first since April 6, 2009, at Toronto. Jhonny Peralta hit a tying solo homer for Detroit in the eighth, but the Royals responded in the bottom half. Billy Butler hit a one-out single for his third hit of the game and was replaced by Lorenzo Cain, who swiped second. Salvador Perez then fouled out against Brayan Villarreal (3-4) and Phil Coke came in to face Moustakas, who doubled down the rightfield line to give the Royals a 9-8 lead. Aaron Crow (3-1) got the win despite allowing Peralta’s 10th homer and Greg Holland worked out of a jam to earn his eighth save in 10 opportunities.

Twins awarded 2014 All-Star game MINNEAPOLIS (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The Minnesota Twins will host the 2014 All-Star game at Target Field. A person with knowledge of the decision, speaking to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because neither the Twins nor Major League Baseball had announced it, confirmed the news on Tuesday. The Twins scheduled a news

The award of MLBâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 2014 midsummer showcase to Minnesota has been widely expected for years. Commissioner Bud Selig has all but declared it several times previously.

The 2013 All-Star game is set for Citi Field, home of the New York Mets. The Kansas City Royals hosted this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s game at Kauffman Stadium. Minnesota last hosted the All-Star game in 1985 at the Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome, where the Twins played for 28 seasons before moving into their open-air, limestone-and-glass ballpark on

COLUMBUS, OHIO â&#x20AC;&#x201D; At first glance, it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t appear to be a big deal. Particularly on the day Urban Meyer was holding his first weekly news conference as the new football coach at Ohio State. But the reason Meyer is here and Jim Tressel is not is that the fanatical, worshipping culture surrounding Ohio State football intoxicated school officials into believing they were bigger than the rules of society, that the Scarlet Steamroller was strong enough to flatten anything in its path. Now 17 months later, apparently nothing has really changed. Minutes before Meyer took to the podium Monday morning in the team meeting room, OSU spokesman Jerry Emig announced the dayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s agenda, which included a silly new rule banning reporters from using Twitter during Meyerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s news conferences. On the surface, it seems petty. But Ohio State officials have no legal standing to prevent reporters from sharing information that is given in a public setting. Nor do they have the authority to dictate when that information can be disseminated. Whether or not that was the intent, this reeks of a powerhungry program flexing a little muscle in a rare area where they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have any and searching for control in areas out of their domain. Want to ban your players from using Twitter? Fine. Want to keep the coaches off it? Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s their prerogative. But attempt to tell a room of reporters from around the state when theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re allowed to report news and problems are sure to ensue. It appears as if, at least for this week, everyone in the room abided by the request. I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t use my Twitter account during the news conference because I wanted to reserve judgment on the policy in hopes of hearing a better explanation. I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really get one. After speaking with a couple of the schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s media relations people, the reasoning ranged from the success they had banning Twitter during some closed practices over the summer to how reporters canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really listen to the news conference if theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re constantly tweeting what Meyer is saying. My job is to decipher what is worthy of reporting instantly on Twitter and what is worth saving for later. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need OSU officials to make the decision for me. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s common for teams to ban Twitter during closed practices and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s easy to see why. It isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a public venue and they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want reporters tweeting certain plays or injuries as theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re happening. Teams are well within their rights to make such a request. Southern California made its decision to embrace it by including playersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Twitter handles on their depth chart. Ohio State has gone in the other direction, trying to control when and how the news is distributed. By the end of our chat, I was left with the impression this rule could soon be changing. That would be a great idea. It doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t happen very often, but this is a contest the Buckeyes canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t win.

ANDY RODDICK RETURNS A SHOT TO RHYNE WILLIAMS during the first round of the U.S. Open. Roddick won, 6-3, 6-4, 6-4, on Tuesday in New York.

Roddick rolls to U.S. Open first-round victory NEW YORK â&#x20AC;&#x201D; That Andy Roddickâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s last match as a twentysomething would not be his last match at the 2012 U.S. Open was hardly in doubt Tuesday, especially whenever he was launching that intimidating, tough-to-handle serve of his. To close the first set: ace at 141 mph. To close the second: ace at 134 mph. To close the third: ace at 127 mph. Yes, even as Roddickâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 30th birthday approaches on Thursday, even as his body has succumbed to injury after injury, that serve is pretty much still the same as it ever was. Now that he more frequently faces opponents who grew up cheering for him â&#x20AC;&#x201D; such as 21-year-old qualifier Rhyne Williams of Knoxville, Tenn., the foil for Tuesdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 6-3, 6-4, 6-4 victory â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Roddick knows more than ever he needs to rely on the best thing heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s got, and 20 aces helped this time. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You really donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t see that shot,â&#x20AC;? Williams said glowingly about Roddickâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s serve. Following Roddick into Arthur Ashe Stadium was 32-year-old Venus Williams, playing her first U.S. Open match since she pulled out before the second round in 2011 and revealed she had been diagnosed with an autoimmune disease. After a shaky start, dropping the first two games â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and even seven points in a row in one stretch â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Williams used her own powerful serve to right herself and beat Bethanie MattekSands of the U.S., 6-3, 6-1.

RUSTON, LA. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Texas A&M and Louisiana Tech have decided to postpone Thursday nightâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s season opener in Shreveport because of Hurricane Isaacâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s forecasted path through Louisiana. The game has been rescheduled until Oct. 13, which had been an open date for both teams. Louisiana Tech athletic director Bruce Van de Velde says university officials, who announced the postponement on Tuesday, are concerned about the safety of the athletes and fans, and want to conscientious of the effect the storm could have on residents throughout the region. Tech now opens Sept. 8 at Houston, while A&M opens Sept. 8 at home against No. 23 Florida.

Wells wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be charged CINCINNATI â&#x20AC;&#x201D; A grand jury has declined to charge a former Xavier University basketball player, a week after his expulsion from school. Hamilton County Prosecutor Joe Deters says grand jurors heard allegations of sexual assault against Dez Wells but decided against criminal charges. Last week, the university expelled Wells for what it called a â&#x20AC;&#x153;serious violationâ&#x20AC;? of the schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s code of student conduct. At the time, the school gave no details of the violation but said a conduct board consisting of faculty, students and administrators made the decision.

A guide to college football season ————

Plenty of big games, big-game players to keep an eye on in 2012 By John Marshall AP College Football Writer

PHOENIX — College football is in for some big and, some say, much-needed changes with the switch to a four-team playoff. Before we get to that, there’s still a couple more seasons under the current system; the playoffs don’t begin until 2014. And this one will be worth watching. There’s plenty of interesting story lines, from Penn State trying to rebuild in the wake of the Jerry Sandusky child sexabuse scandal to Urban Meyer’s return to coaching with Ohio State. There’s no shortage of great players, either. Southern California quarterback Matt Barkley skipped the NFL for the chance at a national title, Michigan’s Denard Robinson is a blur even without his shoelaces tied and Wisconsin’s Montee Ball is like trying to tackle a wrecking ball. Great teams? Could be a few of those, too. USC, LSU, Alabama, Oklahoma, Oregon — the BCS could be under a lot of strain this season with those teams all bidding for No. 1. So to get you ready, we’ve got a rundown of some of the things to watch out for this season.

Top teams USC. Barkley is back. So is his top target, Robert Woods. Former Penn State running back Silas Redd was a nice addition. Postseason eligible again, the Trojans aren’t aiming for just any bowl; they want a trip to Miami and national championship.

Alabama. The Crimson Tide have won two of the past three national championships. They figure to be contenders for another. LSU. The Honey Badger is gone. All those other NFL prospects — such as defensive end Sam Montgomery and safety Eric Reid — should keep the Tigers from missing him. Oklahoma. The Sooners have a record-setting QB in Landry Jones, a brick wall of an offensive line and with the return of Mike Stoops, Bob’s feisty little brother, they should be good on defense, too. Oregon. LaMichael James and Darron ThomJack Dempsey/AP File Photo as are gone? Big deal. The SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA QUARTERBACK MATT Ducks have plenty of othBARKLEY scrambles in a November 2011 game er players who can fly in against Colorado in Boulder, Colo. Barkley skipped those new winged unis. the NFL for a shot a national title.

Keep an eye on Arkansas. QB Tyler Wilson and RB Knile Davis are back, coach John L. Smith has calmed the storm after Bobby Petrino’s motorcycle crash and subsequent firing. All Arkansas has to do now is get by Alabama and LSU — its only two losses a year ago — which isn’t as farfetched as you might think. Both visit the Natural state, one early (Alabama on Sept. 15) the other late (LSU the day after Thanksgiving) Florida State. The Seminoles’ return to prominence has been rumored for years. Under coach Jimbo Fisher, it may actually happen this season. Wisconsin. The Badgers are hungry after consecutive Rose Bowl losses and they have Ball, one of the nation’s best running backs.

Michigan State. Behind RB Le’Veon Bell, the Spartans could be on the verge of breaking a Rose Bowl drought that goes back to 1988. Texas. Mack Brown’s crew appears to be headed back to the big stage behind a helmet-rattling defense. West Virginia. The Mountaineers could make their first season in the Big 12 championship worthy.

Top players Barkley, USC. Projected as a high NFL draft pick, Barkley became an instant Heisman Trophy front-runner when he announced he was coming back for his senior season. Ball, Wisconsin. The Badgers’ star running back changed the pronunciation of his name from Mon-tee to Mon-tay.

will likely get more touches this season now that James is in the NFL. Marcus Lattimore, South Carolina. Back from a torn ACL last season, he should be one of the nation’s top running backs this year.

Big games Sept. 1, Michigan vs. Alabama at Cowboys Stadium, Arlington, Texas. The annual opener at Jerry Jones’ funhouse has had some great matchups in the past. This one could be the best of the bunch. Sept. 15, Alabama at Arkansas. Winner could get the inside track on a national-title run. Sept. 22, Michigan at Notre Dame. Last season’s epic finish makes this a must-watch. Oct. 13, Oklahoma vs. Texas in Dallas. The Red River rivalry continues after all the conference shuffling and could become epic again with these two teams on the rise. Oct. 27, Notre Dame at Oklahoma. A rare meeting between power programs. Nov. 3, Alabama at LSU. We may not get sucked into calling it the Game of the Century again, but it still figures to have national-title implications. Nov. 3, Oregon at USC. Triple digits in combined points is a possibility with all those playmakers on the field. Nov. 24, Michigan at Ohio State. Meyer is running the Buckeyes and Michigan appears to be back. This rivalry could be heating back up.

Whatever you call him, dude’s good. Robinson, Michigan. The Wolverines’ electric quarterback has churned out more than 8,000 yards in his career, most of those the past two seasons. Imagine what he could do if he tied his shoes. Geno Smith, West Virginia. The Mountaineers’ QB set multiple school records as a junior and more could be on the way in his final season in Charleston. Barkevious Mingo, LSU. Been known to train wreck offensive linemen. Jones, Oklahoma. He’s been around since Barry Switzer was coach. OK, maybe not that long, but the four-year starter will leave as the most prolific passer in OU history. De’Anthony Thomas, The new guys There was quite a bit Oregon. Spectacular as a freshman last season and of turnover in the coach-

ing ranks over the offseason, with some pretty big names landing in new places. Here’s a few: Bob Davie, New Mexico. Away from coaching for a decade, Davie tries to turn around a program plagued by embarrassments on and off the field under Mike Locksley. Todd Graham, Arizona State. The fast-talking Texan has done everything right in Tempe so far, soothing concerns about bouncing around while building excitement for the program. All that’s left is to win some games. Mike Leach, Washington State. His offenses are always entertaining. So’s his mouth. Meyer, Ohio State. Burned out no more, the two-time national champion coach returns to the sideline with one of the country’s premier programs — and too many references to an Urban renewal. Bill O’Brien, Penn State. The former o-coordinator of the New England Patriots might have the toughest job in the country. Rich Rodriguez, Arizona. RichRod’s three-year run at Michigan didn’t go so well, but he has Tucson buzzing about football again with his suped-up offense. Smith, Arkansas. The Razorbacks needed someone to smooth over the ugliness of Bobby Petrino’s firing. The even-keel Smith should be a good fit. Charlie Weis, Kansas. Weis’ first stint as a head coach petered out at Notre Dame. The Jayhawks are hoping he can turn around a program that languished under Turner Gill.

KSU’s Klein not typical ————

Quarterback named captain for third year in row MANHATTAN (AP) — The proclamation from coach Bill Snyder following No. 22 Kansas State’s annual spring game was hardly surprising, even though what it represented was downright historic. Senior quarterback Collin Klein would be one of four captains for the 2012 season. Klein ran for 27 touchdowns last season to break a school record set in 1969, and threw for 13 more while leading the Wildcats to a 10-3 record and a berth in the Cotton Bowl. He spent most of the season bloodied and battered, often missing every practice between games, yet never once complaining as he put together one of the finest seasons in school history. So everybody expected Klein to be a captain. But the fact that he was made a captain for the third straight year, something that had never before happened for an offensive player in school history, spoke volumes about how he’s viewed inside and outside the program. “I think the sky’s the limit for anybody. It’s just what you do with what you’ve got,” Snyder said. “He does a great deal with what he has.” More than anything, that’s why Snyder has such an appreciation for him. He doesn’t have the greatest throwing motion — wide receiver Chris Harper called it “jinky,” which he described as “not what everybody typically thinks is correct.” And he certainly prefers to scramble out of the pocket than settle back and search down field. But even though Klein is just about the furthest thing from the prototypi-

Sue Ogrocki/AP File Photo

KANSAS STATE QUARTERBACK COLLIN KLEIN carries the ball in a 2011 game against Oklahoma State in Stillwater, Okla. cal, 21st-century quarterback, he somehow makes it work in Snyder’s modern adaptation of the veer offense. Klein had the thirdmost rushing attempts last season in major college football, the 317 carries trailing only Bobby Rainey of Western Kentucky and Robbie Rouse of Fresno State — both of them running backs, guys who are supposed to be toting the ball. The quarterback with the next-most attempts was Tevin Washington of Georgia Tech, and he was 75 carries shy. It’s no wonder Klein took such a beating last season he often joked he was becoming best friends with the Kansas State training staff. Perhaps that’s the biggest reason why Klein spent so much of his offseason working with Harper and the rest of his veteran wide receivers. They toiled in the blistering, 100-degree heat of the Flint Hills, running endless routes and refining Klein’s mechanics to the point where maybe — just maybe — he’ll be able to air it out a bit more this season.

“The growth has been across the board, and it hasn’t just been focused in one area,” Snyder said. “He’s grown in regards to his game management. He’s grown in regards to his understanding of our offense and defensive football. He’s grown in terms of leadership, in terms of his confidence level, in just his overall presence on the field, as well as the physical things, the running game and passing game as well. I’ve seen some movement, positive movement, in all those areas.” The Wildcats started to move away from a onedimensional, run-first offense centered around their quarterback late last year, when teams began to stack the line to prevent the 6-foot-5, 226-pound wrecking ball from running right at them. Klein averaged 124 yards passing over the first eight games, but nearly 184 yards in the final four games against Oklahoma State, Texas A&M, Texas and Iowa State. The only loss was a 52-45 heartbreaker to the then-No. 3 Cowboys on the road.

KANSAS MEN’S BASKETBALL

Rivals moves KU commit Greene into top 25 By Gary Bedore gbedore@ljworld.com

Future Kansas University small forward Brannen Greene’s national recruiting ranking improved nine slots — from No. 31 to 22 overall — Rivals.com announced on Tuesday. The rise of Greene, a 6-foot-7, 200-pound senior from Tift County High in Forsyth, Ga., means KU and Florida currently are the only two schools in the country with at least two verbal commitments in the top 30 in the Class of 2013. Conner Frankamp, a 6-0 senior guard from Wichita North, remains at No. 28 overall entering his senior season. Florida has commitments from No. 6 Chris Walker and No. 7 Kasey Hill. As far as some other KU targets ... Forwards Julius Randle and Jabari Parker flipflopped their Nos. 1 and 2 national rankings. Randle, 6-9 from Prestonwood

Christian Academy in Plano, Texas, who is now ranked No. 1, lists KU, Baylor, Duke, Florida, Kentucky, North Carolina, N.C. State, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State and Texas. Parker, 6-8 from Chicago Simeon, who is No. 2, lists KU, BYU, DePaul, Duke, Florida, Georgetown, Kentucky, Michigan State, North Carolina, Stanford and Illinois. Parker’s dad and high school coach, Sonny Parker, was not pleased to hear the news. “My son fell because he was injured (and missed some AAU ball),” Sonny told the Chicago Sun Times. “He’s still ranked No. 1 everywhere else.

He’s national player of the year with two gold medals, three state championships. What more could he do? The rankings are overrated anyway. In that trophy cabinet at Simeon there are trophies that have nothing to do with rankings. “This stuff doesn’t mean anything to Jabari,” Sonny added. “He doesn’t get caught up in rankings and all that stuff.” Meanwhile, Randle told Rivals.com: “Sure it’s a goal. But I’ve become more mature in high school so I know that everybody is going to have their own opinion. My goal has become to win first and then try to establish myself as the best player on the court each time I’m out there.” Aaron Gordon, a 6-8 forward from Archbishop Mitty High in San Jose, Calif., who is considering KU, Arizona, Washington, Oregon, Kentucky and Cal, remained at No. 5.

attacked the ball to control the game. “In that sense it was a team defensive effort that keeps that back line from having to do a lot.” The Lions asserted themselves with a dominating first half, out-shooting visiting Topeka, 16-4. Lyan put Lawrence ahead permanently just 10 minutes in. He sprinted down the middle of the field, past Topeka’s defense for a quick touch and goal. “We got the first goal,” Lyan said, “and that was that.” Just more than five minutes later, senior midfielder Conner Murphy strategically trailed the action to set himself up for an easy score in the box, giving the Lions a 2-0 advantage. The goals kept coming in the 18th minute, when senior Nick Andrews flew into a crowd and converted on a header. Senior midfielder Justin Riley created Lawrence’s fourth and final goal of the first half in the 36th minute with a violent boot from more than 25 yards out. Riley’s shot rocketed into the upper right corner, giving Topeka goal-

keeper Cain Mathis zero chance of stopping it. The barrage continued in the second half, when Lawrence booted nine more shots to Topeka’s one. In the 55th minute, Fischer kicked the ball away from Mathis, who was playing up in the box, before the keeper could grasp it. With the goalie down on the turf, Fischer shot the ball into a wide open net for a 5-0 Lions lead. Matthews’ victory-capping goal came with less than four minutes remaining. Parker Davies sent a free kick at backup keeper James Lucatero (Mathis was injured on the previous goal), who punched it away. But Matthews took a few quick steps toward the rebound and headed the ball in on the right side. “We’re always supposed to crash the goal,” he said, “as soon as it’s shot.” While Lawrence’s offense did most of the damage, its senior goalie, Jeff Mekus, produced three big saves in the shutout win. Said Murphy: “We felt good about what we did tonight.” Next up for LHS is a Sept. 4 game at Blue Valley West.

the opportunity to start. From going all-out at practice every day to spending nearly an hour a night extra in his playbook, Sterling did all he could to make up for lost time. That included extra one-on-one sessions with strength coach Scott Holsopple, both in the mornings and after practices. “It’s not fun at all. Not for a guy my size,” he said. “But I’m getting through it, and my conditioning is getting better each week.” In other notable depth chart news: O Senior transfer Anthony McDonald, a linebacker from Notre Dame, was not listed. “Anthony could play,” Weis said. “But, right now, I don’t believe that Anthony could turn it loose. When he can turn it loose, the depth chart will change.” O Red-shirt freshman Michael Cummings continues to hold the lead over sophomore transfer Turner Baty in the race to back up starting quarterback Dayne Crist. At running back, juco transfer Taylor Cox edged out sophomore Brandon Bourbon for the No. 2 spot at running back — behind sophomore starter Tony Pierson — but Weis said all three backs should get carries on Saturday. O KU’s two-deep features 14 newcomers, including five who will enter the season as starters. O Tavai and freshman wide receiver Tre’ Parmalee were the two players whose names appeared three different times on the depth chart. While Tavai is listed in three spots on the defensive line, Parmalee was listed as a reserve at three different positions — wide receiver, punt returner and holder. O Although most of the battles for first- and second-string spots have been settled, a few instances of “OR” remain on the depth chart. Weis doesn’t mind. “Hopefully, they’ll never resolve themselves,” Weis said. “The reason you have those is because you like ’em both, not because you like neither. It’s a little tougher when the “or” is in the first position.”

Memphis, Michigan State, Notre Dame and Xavier. Tyler Roberson, a 6-8 forward from Roselle (N.J.) Catholic, improved from No. 53 to No. 29. He lists KU, Alabama, Florida, Kentucky, Rutgers, Seton Hall, South Carolina, SMU, Syracuse and Villanova. He has said he will visit KU the weekend of Sept. 7, but told Rivals. com on Tuesday he may yet change the date. Troy Williams, a 6-6 forward from Oak Hill Academy in Mouth of Wilson, Va., and good buddy of point guard Barber, improved from No. 41 to No. 35. He lists KU, Kentucky, North Carolina, Alabama, Louisville, Georgetown, South Carolina, Ohio State, Arkansas and Memphis. Karviar Shepherd, a 6-10 center from Prime Prep Academy in Dallas fell from No. 34 to No. 43. He lists KU, SMU, Texas, Texas A&M, LSU, Oklahoma, TCU and Marquette. His prep teammate, Jordan Mickey, a

6-7 forward who also lists KU, improved from No. 51 to No. 38. Allerik Freeman, a 6-4 guard from Findlay Prep in Henderson, Nev., fell from No. 39 to No. 52. He lists KU, Duke, Ohio State, UCLA and Villanova. As far as a pair of local products who at this time are not considering KU ... Raytown, Mo.’s Ishmail Wainright, 6-5 from Montrose Christian High in Maryland, fell from No. 32 to No. 49. Semi Ojeleye, 6-8 from Ottawa High, improved from No. 36 to 30.

“I think they’re well aware of that,” he said. “I think bringing back moments from the past, both good and bad, are good teaching points.” With that in mind, Weis said the least of his concerns was about his team looking past the Jackrabbits. “I don’t think we’re worried about being overconfident,” he said. “We just lost a hundred in a row.”

Hampton (Va) High, remained No. 9. He will visit KU this weekend. He also lists N.C. State, Alabama and Louisville. Marcus Lee, a 6-9 power forward from Deer Valley High in Antioch, Calif., improved from No. 33 to No. 15. He lists KU, Cal, Duke, Indiana, Kentucky, Louisville and UCLA. Jermaine Lawrence, a 6-9 power forward from Pope John XXIII in Sparta, N.J. improved from 19 to 18. He lists KU, Kentucky, UCLA, St. Johns, Cincinnati, Syracuse and UNLV. Wayne Selden, a 6-5 shooting guard from Tilton (N.H.) School, saw his ranking fall to 23 from No. 21. He lists KU, Florida, Missouri, UCLA, Syracuse and Ohio State. Demetrius Jackson, a 6-1 point guard from Marian High in Mishawaka, Ind., jumped from No. 70 to No. 27.

Preparation Ouch During Tuesday morning’s Missouri Valley Conference coaches teleconference South Dakota State coach John Stiegelmeier pointed out that preparing for the Jayhawks could be tough because they had no recent film to watch from Weis coaching the Jayhawks. “We don’t see anything because there’s no film on ’em, obviously,” Stiegelmeier said. “You can look at Florida, with coach Weis and his offense there but that’s a whole different level and different type of player.” Later in the day, Weis seemed genuinely confused when Stiegelmeier’s comments were brought to his attention. “No film on me? Take your pick,” he said. “Florida, Chiefs, Notre Dame. You get tons of film on me, what do you want to pick? Fortunately, I’ve done a lot of different things, so I think you have to decide what you’re gonna get ready for.” So much, in fact, that Weis said he was not concerned at all about the concept of spies observing practice from KU’s campus. “We’ve done so many things on offense that if you video-taped all we’ve done and tried to get ready for it, it would take

you about three years,” Weis said. “So, if they can figure that out, they’re a lot smarter than I am.”

think,” he said. “In the past, I didn’t care who fed the post. Now we might have to set it up where Elijah’s the one feeding the post, much like we did with Aaron Miles because we had a similar type situation with Aaron, Keith (Langford) and J.R. (Giddens). You know, it’s kind of similar.” Self will do more than reflect on those days. He

and assistants Joe Dooley, Norm Roberts, Kurtis Townsend and director of operations Doc Sadler will look closely at what worked well when having one primary ballhandler instead of two on the floor. “We’ll go back and look at some of that film to see how we utilized putting Aaron in as many positions as possible to finish

Snap judgment Last weekend’s suspension of starting long snapper Justin Carnes made the KU coaching staff adjust quickly. As it turns out, the bad news might have turned out to be a blessing, as senior center Trevor Marrongelli has taken over on short snaps and freshman Reilly Jeffers is listed as the firstteam deep snapper. “Trevor is actually a better short snapper, it’s just that you had an opportunity to take your starting center and not have to put him out there,” Weis said. “In reality, what we’re doing is we’re just forcing Trevor to do more work. But at the same time we actually get a very, very good short snapper.” Asked if Jeffers, a true freshman from South Bend, Ind., was ready for the load, Weis praised Marrongelli yet again. “If Reilly wasn’t good enough, he wouldn’t be doing it because Trevor’d be doing that, too,” he said. “Trevor could longsnap, too, but I don’t want to listen to him whine about having to run 45 yards down the field after he snaps the ball. I think we feel pretty good about it. You never going into a season just having one guy do it. You have other guys that are set and ready to go.”

QB update As for the health of SDSU quarterback, Austin Sumner, on whom there is plenty of film to watch, Stiegelmeier said the sophomore was “questionable” for Saturday’s 6:06 p.m. kickoff. “He had an injury in fall camp and, right now, he is more out than in,” Stiegelmeier said. “He’s doing everything he can, but it’s very doubtful that he’s gonna play.” If Sumner cannot play, red-shirt freshman Eric Kline would get the start, but Weis said the injury report would not change KU’s practice plans. “Sumner is who we’ll prepare for,” Weis said. “And if it ends up being Kline, we’ll be ready to Position changes go.” KU’s latest official Oh, those Dakotas roster revealed posiAll of the talk about tion changes for a couple playing South Dakota of Jayhawks not on this State in the opener has week’s depth chart. brought back plenty of Junior Darius Willis, memories of KU’s season- who started every game of opening embarrassment the 2011 season at middle at the hands of North Da- linebacker also has begun working as a defensive kota State in 2010.

KANSAS CITY CHIEFS QUARTERBACK MATT CASSEL (7) IS TACKLED by Seattle Seahawks defensive end Greg Scruggs (98) during the first half of an NFL preseason game on Friday in Kansas City, Mo.

Chiefs’ focus ahead, not on tuneup woes KANSAS CITY, MO. (AP) — Fans who say the preseason doesn’t count for anything probably tend not to congregate in Kansas City. For followers of the Chiefs, August augurs almost nothing but pain. At 1-2 going into Thursday’s final 2012 tuneup at Green Bay, Kansas City is a woebegone 7-28 in preseason games since 2004. In four of those supposedly meaningless preseasons, the Chiefs were 0-4. Meaningless? Their combined 6-26 exhibition record the past eight years has been followed by 53 wins and 75 losses in the regular season, one playoff appearance and no playoff wins. The Chiefs haven’t posted a winning preseason since 2003 when Dick Vermeil’s Chiefs won the Hall of Fame game to nudge past break-even at 3-2 — and then tore through the regular season 13-3. In their last two August games, a 31-17 setback to St. Louis and a 44-14 embarrassment against Seattle, the performance has been especially grim. For that reason, coach Romeo Crennel may use his starters against Green Bay much more than firstteamers normally play in a game that usually belongs to longshots and backups. “What I want to see is I want to see an efficient operation from all the units and particularly the starting unit,” Crennel said. “So, if they go out there and they operate efficiently, then I might be inclined to say, ‘Well, we’ve done something good,’ and if we don’t do anything good, I might say, ‘We need to do something good,’ to build up that confidence level.” Playing the regulars in the final preseason game is taking a chance that somebody might get hurt. Confidence is also an issue for a team as young as the Chiefs. They don’t have a

What I want to see is ... an efficient operation from all the units and particularly the starting unit.” — Kansas City Chiefs coach Romeo Crennel on his plans for the team’s final preseason game player older than 30, and the regular-season opener at home against Atlanta will only be 10 days away when the Chiefs’ latenight flight returns from Green Bay. “When you have good things happen, that’s a positive all the way around,” Crennel said. “I think that from a coaching standpoint, what you have to be careful about when you’re not playing well is that you don’t beat them up too much because now they lose all confidence. So you do have to point out the good things that they do. If you can do anything good and show that you can do some good things, then you try to build on that and then that confidence level that you’re talking about, then that can occur. But, if you never do anything good and you always get beat up, then you believe that.” As worrisome as any position, especially after the Seattle game, is quarterback. Matt Cassel was 19 for 34 for 168 yards and a TD against the Seahawks. But he was also sacked three times and threw a rookie-like interception off his back foot. Seahawks rookie Russell Wilson was clearly the best quarterback on the field that night. Cassel denies any special need to have a good game against the Packers. “I think there’s always a sense of urgency. It doesn’t matter how you play one game, there’s always a sense of urgency every game you go into,” he said “This week, obviously, we’re going in and we’re looking to have

Austin Jackson led off the Detroit ninth with a walk and advanced to third on a groundout and wild pitch. After Miguel Cabrera struck out and Prince Fielder was walked intentionally, Delmon Young hit Holland’s next pitch just outside the rightfield pole. Tigers manager Jim Leyland wanted it reviewed and after looking at replays, it was ruled a foul ball. Young lined out to left on the next pitch. Jackson went 3 for 3 and scored three times for the Tigers, who stayed 2 games back of the AL Central-leading White Sox. Fielder and Young each had two RBIs. After striking out his first two hitters, Verlander allowed seven runs on 10 hits to the next 13 batters, throwing 56 pitches in the first two innings. The Royals batted around in a four-run second. Alex Gordon doubled and scored in the first, then doubled home two runs in the second. It was his fifth consecutive multi-hit game and gave him a major league-leading 44 doubles. Perez’s second double in the sixth scored Jarrod Dyson and chased Verlander after the righthander yielded 12 hits, one shy of his career high set Aug. 11, 2006, against the Chicago White Sox in his rookie season. The Royals’ 2-through-6 hitters — Alcides Escobar, Gordon, Butler, Perez and Moustakas — combined for 12 hits and nine RBIs. Moustakas began the day mired in a 1-for-23 skid. Verlander entered with a 9-2 record and a 1.83 ERA in 13 career starts at Kauffman Stadium and a 14-2 overall record against the Royals. Detroit scored three times in the first. Andy Dirks doubled in Jackson and scored on Young’s two-out homer off Luis Mendoza. The Royals responded with three runs in the bottom half, capped by Moustakas’ two-run single. Mendoza gave up six runs and seven hits in five innings.

some production and go from there. But our ultimate goal is to get ready for Atlanta and week one.” Tamba Hali, the Chiefs’ best pass-rusher, will sit out the Atlanta game as the result of a one-game league suspension. Crennel, in something of a surprise, said instead of giving Hali’s backups a chance for extended playing time on Thursday night, he would have Hali make the start. “He’s a football player. He wants to play football, so we will let him play,” Crennel said. “I think that we’ll keep on the same schedule that we’re going to have the starters on and not give him any more or any less because he is a starter, I don’t think you want to expose him any more than you want to expose your other starters. We’ll deal with his circumstance next week.” Cornerback Brandon Flowers has not practiced all month because of a foot injury. He may not be ready for the Falcons and his backup, Jalil Brown, has not looked good. Plus, Brown missed another practice on Tuesday with a groin injury. If he doesn’t improve, starting against the Falcons could be Jacques Reeves, who broke his leg in 2009 and BOX SCORE sat out both 2010 and 2011. 9, Tigers 8 Also out for the Green Royals Detroit Kansas City ab r h bi ab r h bi Bay game is first-team nose AJcksn cf 3 3 3 0 JDyson cf 3 2 10 tackle Anthony Toribio, Dirks rf 5 1 1 1 AEscor ss 5 1 21 3b 5 1 2 1 AGordn lf 5 2 22 which give first-round pick MiCarr Fielder 1b 3 1 1 2 Butler dh 4 1 32 Dontari Poe his first start.

Orioles 6, White Sox 0 BALTIMORE — Chris Tillman allowed one hit over seven innings, Nick Markakis drove in three runs, and Baltimore defeated Chris Sale and Chicago on Tuesday night for its fourth straight win. Lew Ford homered for the second time in two nights and Adam Jones hit his 100th career home run for the Orioles, who moved a season-high 14 games over .500 (71-57) and remained atop the AL wild-card standings. The only hit against Tillman (7-2) was an infield dribbler by Dayan Viciedo in the fifth inning that shortstop J.J. Hardy couldn’t snag with an attempted barehanded pickup. Pitching on six days’ rest, Tillman walked four, struck out five and did not allow a runner past second. Chicago

Hughes (13-11) won his sixth consecutive decision at Yankee Stadium, giving up only Adeiny Hechavarria’s first major league homer in seven effective innings. He allowed four hits and walked three. Rafael Soriano bounced back from a blown save Monday night, when he gave up a go-ahead homer to Colby Rasmus with two outs in the ninth, by working a perfect inning to finish the four-hitter for his 34th save in 37 tries. Curtis Granderson hit a sacrifice fly to help the Yankees to their fifth win in 12 games. They beat Romero (8-12) for the third time during his winless skid.

Nori: Not just for sushi anymore

BRIEFLY Taste of Lawrence set for Sept. 12 The annual Taste of Lawrence Fall Mixer is set for 5-8 p.m. Sept. 12 on the lawn of Meadowbrook Apartments. The event is private, open only to Lawrence Chamber of Commerce members and Douglas County educators. Tickets are $25 for chamber members or $12.50 for educators and must be purchased through the chamber office, 785-865-4411. Taste of Lawrence is the chamber’s largest event of the year and features offerings from numerous local food and beverage vendors. For more information on the event, visit lawrencechamber.com.

Crimson delicacies fill ‘True Blood’ cookbook NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Cajun chef Marcelle Bienvenu has partnered with HBO to compile a collection of recipes inspired by the cable network’s hit vampire drama, “True Blood.” That means recipes for such delicacies as bloodred beet bisque and sweet tea “bloodied” with pureed strawberries and raspberries. “True Blood” is filmed partly in Louisiana and is set in the fictional Louisiana town of Bon Temps. The state’s cuisine is often referenced in the series, where vampires and mortals mingle over bowls of okra gumbo, jambalaya and red beans and rice. The cookbook, “True Blood: Eats, Drinks, and Bites from Bon Temps,” is being released in bookstores today.

Salmonella traced to Indiana cantaloupe OWENSVILLE, IND. (AP) — The Food and Drug Administration has identified a southern Indiana farm that produces cantaloupes linked to a deadly salmonella outbreak and says the operation has recalled its melons. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported last week that of 178 people infected in 21 states, two have died and 62 have been hospitalized. Chamberlain Farms of Owensville could be one source of contaminated fruit in the multistate outbreak, the FDA said. Attorney John Broadhead said Chamberlain Farms voluntarily withdrew its cantaloupes last week and that all its retail and wholesale purchasers complied with the recall. The farm about 20 miles north of Evansville sold cantaloupes to grocery stores in four southwestern Indiana counties and one in southeastern Illinois, Broadhead said in a statement. The fruit was also sold to wholesale purchasers in St. Louis; Owensboro, Ky.; Peru, Ill., and Durant, Iowa.

with sea salt, wasabi, even chipotle pepper. Most grocers sell packages of 10-inch sheets of nori, usually near the sushi or in the international aisle. It also is used in Japanese snack cracker mixes. Nori sheets usually are sold pre-toasted; use them as is for sushi. But when using the nori in other ways, toasting it briefly can improve the flavor and texture. To do this, simply use tongs to hold the sheets one at a time over a lit burner (or candle if you have an electric stove). About 10 to 15 seconds will suffice.

This burger is topped with cheddar cheese, bacon and peanut butter. Yes, peanut butter. It’s warm, melty, sticky and drips out the side of the bun when you bite into it, kind of like ketchup (but kind of not). Servers say the Goober is popular hangover food. Where to get it: Yacht Club Sports Bar and Grill, 530 Wis. What you’ll pay: $8.49 plus tax. Includes a side. Try it with: Pickles? Then again, maybe cheese, bacon and peanut butter is already enough things on one burger. If you’re with friends (and

If you’ve ever had a California roll, you’ve had nori. Now it’s time to learn what else you can do with this ubiquitous, yet always overlooked paper-like ingredient made from seaweed. Nori — also called laver — is a somewhat generic name for a variety of seaweeds cultivated for use mostly in Japanese cooking. I say mostly because the same varieties are added to oatmeal in Ireland.

Use paper towels to blot away as much moisture as possible from the red pepper. Cut it into small chunks. In a medium skillet over medium-high, melt the butter. Reduce the heat to medium and add the egg mixture. Cook until the bottom is firm, about 4 minutes. Scatter the red pepper and scallions evenly over half of the egg. Sprinkle the cheese over the vegetables. Use a spatula to carefully lift the other half of the omelet and gently flip it over onto the fillings. Cover the pan and cook for another 6 to 7 minutes. When the eggs are set at the center and the cheese has melted, cut the omelet in half and season with salt and pepper, as needed.

Town Talk Restaurant Roundup ————

Word on the street from the past week of our city reporter’s blog It would be a matter of great debate at my house whether trading chocolate for bourbon would be a good trade. (You can probably guess my position, and the chocolate smudge on my wife’s cheek may be giving hers away.) Well, you can now determine the issue for yourself in Downtown Lawrence. There’s been a change at 945 Mass., where I Bar — a unique establishment that combined fine desserts with an extensive wine bar — once was located. I Bar is out and it has been replaced by Five Bar and Tables. The bar has scrapped the fondue-style theme, and has replaced it with a full bar, an appetizer menu and is getting into the live music scene. Every Friday night will be jazz night at Five Bar and Tables. Thursday and Saturday nights also will have live music and it looks like Wednesdays may be a possibility too. Owner Nick Wysong told me that in addition to jazz, he plans on having a healthy dose of bluegrass and cover bands. Like I Bar was, Five Bar and Tables is connected to Ingredient restaurant,

hoping to attract all different kinds of guests.” And unlike I Bar, it is definitely adopting some bar-like hours. The establishment will stay open until 2 a.m. on Fridays and Saturdays, and will offer a late-night menu on those days. There also is one other twist to all this. Wysong said he plans to begin off fering a small breakfast clawhorn@ljworld.com menu on the Five side of the business on Friday, which is next door. But I’m Saturday and Sunday. not sure that you could re- That menu will be served ally get food service from from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m.

the “Best Locally Owned Restaurant” category. The headline over the story calls the contest The Best of Topeka, but if you read the story closely it also refers to it as the Best off Topeka and Northeast Kansas, so given that, it makes a little more sense why a Lawrence restaurant shows up on the list. We’ve rigged it so no Topeka restaurants can win our very own Best off Lawrence contest. You can fill out a ballot at Lawrence. com/BestofLawrence; voting lasts until Sept. 7 and winners will be announced in the Sept. 30 JournalWorld.

A follow-up to an item first reported earlier: An employee of Wyldewood Cellars, 835 Mass., along with other sources, has confirmed that the store is going out of business in Lawrence. The store’s last day is slated to be around Oct. 31. The employee told me business has been very slow for the store, which opened about a year ago. The shop’s lease is set to expire, so the owners decided to make a change. — Catch Chad Lawhorn’s Town Talk blog e e y weekday every ee day morning o g at ljworld.com. j o d.co .

Slushies have taken on a surprisingly critical role in my family’s summer. And it’s my 7-year-old’s fault. The summer camp he attended sold them at the camp store. I resisted at first, telling him he didn’t need the sugar and neon chemicals used to concoct the icy blends. But like all spineless parents, enough nagging and I eventually relented, giving him permission to cool off with one small slushie once a day. Then a 100-degree day hit. And while my son was off slurping his slushie at camp, I sat sweating in my home office. So I decided two could play at the slushie game. Not only could I whip up my own chilly drinks, I could do a better job, creating more interesting flavors and using far better ingredients. Sugar was certainly going to have to be part of the equation, but no neon chemicals were needed. The results were delicious and refreshing. And while I love the three flavor blends I came up with, it’s easy to create your own. Just keep a few guidelines in mind.

You will need a blender. With most models, you’ll need to stop it once or twice while blending to mix up the ice so that it doesn’t jam. The weaker your blender, the more times you’ll need to stop and mix.

Aim for a ratio of 3 cups of ice to 2 to 3 cups of liquid/other ingredients. This ensures you will get an icy, but smooth consistency. It also helps keep

Don’t be afraid to really let the blender go for a couple minutes. You want the mixture to be very smooth. There should be no discernible hunks of ice.

Sugar is important for consistency. While you could use stevia or another alternative sweetener to cut calories, the result will be watery. I liked using agave or honey, which have a pleasantly mild sweetness that won’t compete with the other flavors. Simple syrup (2-to-1 mixture of granulated sugar and water) also works.

high. High heat is KEY to good fried rice. Add the sesame oil and a couple more teaspoons of bacon grease back to the pan and wait for it all to get extremely hot. Add the rice, shrimp, vegetables and crumbled bacon to the pan and let it sit there. Resist the urge to mess with it for at least a minute. Then flip everything. It should be sizzling hot. Drizzle the rest of the soy sauce around the edges, stir gently and eat! A bowl of this and some egg drop soup or an egg roll and seriously, people, I don’t think I can be happier with a meal. — Read more of Megan Stuke’s Flying Fork blog at Lawrence.com.

The heat is on Truebud threw a party for more than 100 relatives and friends Friday night, but on Saturday there’s not a barbecue sauce splatter or beer can (other than the one Abts is sipping) in sight. Inside the prep trailer it’s no picnic — it’s a barbecue emergency room. With turn-in time closing in, Grant’s calmly calling for paper towels, scissors, knives, sauce. He’s trimming meat, poking thermometers in it and ripping through more sets of latex gloves than a scrub nurse. There’s packs of wet wipes in every corner, and disposable paper cutting boards are whisked into the trash after every operation. The trailer’s even airconditioned (though the air goes off while competition meat’s on the table, to help keep it hot for judging). The teams settles on its six best chicken thighs from the 16 it smoked, tucks them into a box in Truebud’s signature — and secret — pattern and rushes them to the judges. “We cook this many just so we can find the best ones,” Grant says. From five slabs of ribs, Grant and Abts are looking for the 10 best bones. “This one? Not so good,” Grant says while slicing into the first slab. “Questionable.” The next one? “Way better.” “We can pretty much tell if they’re going to be good by how easy it is to cut through ’em,” Abts says. “Every slab’s different.” The 10 straightest, meatiest, tenderest, most symmetrical ribs go into the next styrofoam box and off to the judges. Friends waiting outside pick over the pan of rejects in minutes. “A lot of our followers say we’ve ruined them on barbecue,” Grant laughs. “You can’t get anything fresher than fresh barbecue. If you go to a restaurant, they’re warming it up.” Next is pork, then the brisket — sliced to the width of a No. 2 pencil. Too thick or too thin slices don’t make it into the box.

TOP TEAMS

This week, Truebud BBQ is the only Kansas City-area team in the top 10 overall, and one of only two from Kansas, in the Kansas City Barbeque Society 2012 Team of the Year pointschase standings. The society updates standings each Monday at kcbs.us. 1. 3 Eyz BBQ — 2,790 2. TippyCanoe BBQ Crew — 2,783 3. Pig Skin BBQ — 2,781 4. Little Pig Town — 2,726 5. Swiggin’ Pig — 2,703 6. Big T’z Q Cru — 2,694 7. Truebud BBQ — 2,693 8. Quau — 2,679 9. J P Custom Smoke (Wichita) — 2,654 10. Parrothead Smokers — 2,628 In individual categories, Truebud is third in pork ribs, 14th in chicken, 18th in brisket and 25th in pork nationwide.

Boyd joined after Grant moved to Kansas. He and Grant are the main team members now, with Iowa friends, Grant’s 14-year-old son, Conner, and other family members joining when they can. Grant laughs when recounting the team’s first barbecue competition. “We had six guys in a pop-up tent,” Grant said. “We overloaded the smoker, nothing got done, the chicken was raw ... it was pretty comical.” The team usually packed up and left before awards ceremonies. When they won their first ribbon — in pork at the American Royal open competition — they weren’t even there when their names were called. “After that we were like, ‘Maybe we should take this a little more seriously, maybe we’re getting good at this?’” Grant said. Now, Grant and Abts cook to win. Last year Truebud won national Team of the Year in ribs, the team’s specialty. This year they’ve traveled to barbecue competitions nearly every weekend since February, hitting the road after finishing their day jobs for the week — Grant’s a network and telecommunications manager for Garmin and Abts has a guttering company — then tending to meat from 2 a.m. on each Saturday. Truebud plans to keep it up through December, when they hope to come out on top in the overall points chase. “Our goal is to be the Pulling it together best,” Grant said. “You Truebud wasn’t always can’t miss weekends and this serious. expect to earn those honGrant started the team ors.” for fun, a way to reunite with friends he grew up — Features reporter Sara Shepherd can with in Iowa — “truebe reached at 832-7187.

Quest for perfection propels barbecue team into national ranks By Sara Shepherd sshepherd@ljworld.com

Tim Grant hits the door of his trailer — styrofoam box of just-sliced hot brisket cradled in front of him — at 1:34:35 p.m. and high-tails it for the judges’ table. Doors for the 1:30 p.m. turn-in close at 1:35. Grant slips through and sets down his brisket at 1:34:47. He’s right on schedule. In a strategy that’s admittedly part superstition, Truebud BBQ likes to be the last team to turn in brisket — almost always the final entry — at every barbecue competition. An hour and a half earlier, the team was the first

to turn in chicken at Saturday’s Smokin’ on Oak barbecue competition in Bonner Springs. For Grant, of Tonganoxie, and Boyd Abts, Eudora, meticulousness is as much their signature as their secret rib seasoning, and it’s helped propel them to the elite ranks of the country’s top competition barbecue teams. “We’ve got it down to a science,” Grant said. Truebud has been a top-10 fixture in the Kansas City Barbeque Society’s 2012 Team of the Year points chase, including weeks at number one or two. Because points earned at every societysanctioned open competition

count, teams jockey for standings from week to week until the final cookoffs in December (usually happening in warmer states, like Arizona). In this sport, national champions often come down to who’s on top when the clock runs out. And of the 4,000-plus teams in the society, executive director Carolyn Wells said, the 10 or 15 in the “top echelon” are usually running neck-and-neck. “The competition is really intense,” Wells said. “It’s meant to be fun, but it is serious, and these are truly the best barbecue CHECKING OUT THE FINAL PRODUCT, Tim Grant, a pit mascooks in the world.” ter with Truebud BBQ, samples a piece of brisket at the Please see BBQ, page 9B Bonner Springs competition.

Takeout fake-out: Sizzlin’ fried rice

W

hen I order Chinese takeout, all I ever really want is the fried rice. I usually order some cashew chicken or something because they won’t deliver for an order under 10 bucks, but it’s just a sideshow to the main event: that gorgeous, salty, flavor-filled fried rice. Recently, though, I’ve decided that is a really foolish waste of my hardearned buck, so I just make my own fried rice and skip the takeout altogether. I didn’t want the cashew chicken anyway, and this way I don’t have to tip the driver. I usually whip up some egg drop

Dear Annie: I am married to a great guy, and we have two wonderful, intelligent teens. But my mother-in-law is causing great stress. ‘‘Mama” was diagnosed with borderline personality disorder 10 years ago and is prescribed a cocktail of drugs to help with a preponderance of violent mood swings, anger, resentment and occasional dissociation. She is a textbook narcissist who can only demand love for herself and is unable to give to others. Her family relationships and many of her friendships have taken a dive. It’s a wonder she can hold down a job. Her big trigger is perceived rejection. When she was in our home, she expected to be everyone’s entire focus. She demanded the full attention and affection of my husband and deeply resented his relationship with his own children. Needless to say, invitations to holi-

day gatherings dwindled over the years. Her grandchildren have grown up without her in their lives, although we have taken care not to poison them against her. Now, Mama has taken herself off all meds and declared herself cured. She has convinced herself that her diagnosis was wrong, and that her problem all along has been emotional abuse from others, including her children and grandchildren. In short, everyone else is to blame. The trouble now is that she is blogging on the In-

‘Roughness’ transcends star

“Necessary Roughness” (9 p.m., USA) wraps up its second season with a series of personal and professional crises. A casual observer of this melodrama, about sports therapist Dani Santino (Callie Thorne) and the athletes and teams that employ her, would have to remark how much the show has shifted the attention away from therapy — and even Dani — toward more colorful characters and situations. Tonight’s episode continues television’s recent fixation with group therapy. After a drug binge culminates in a near-disastrous car accident, football superstar Terrence “TK” King (Mehcad Brooks) is suspended from the Hawks and sent to a posh rehab center. There he encounters a slick music producer played with gusto by Michael Imperioli (“The Sopranos”). He’s now on his seventh or eighth stint at rehab and knows how to work the angles — knowledge he imparts to the arrogant wide receiver. This is a great role for Imperioli, and fans who miss Christopher Moltisanti should not miss it. Meanwhile, TK’s departure spells major trouble for his team on and off the field, a crisis compounded by at least two missing persons cases and a sports gambling disaster that hits close to home.

Meanwhile, on “Royal Pains” (8 p.m.), USA’s other popular series, a visiting pop star seeks treatment for “exhaustion,” but shows symptoms of a more urgent nature.

Coverage of the Republican National Convention (6 p.m., CNN, Current; 7 p.m., PBS, Fox News, MSNBC; 8 p.m., Bloomberg; and 9 p.m., ABC, CBS and NBC) continues.

Tonight’s other highlights

The remaining eight finalists perform on “So You Think You Can Dance” (7 p.m., Fox).

Male viewers in search of familiar comfort food can indulge in two helpings of “Caddyshack” (6:30 p.m. and 8:30 p.m., Golf).

A personal doctor (James McAvoy) offers a first-person account of the court of Ugandan dictator Idi Amin (Forest Whitaker) in the 2006 drama “The Last King of Scotland” (7 p.m., IFC).

A runaway train carries toxic cargo in the 2010 thriller “Unstoppable” (7:15 p.m., Cinemax), starring Denzel Washington and directed by the late Tony Scott.

Three acts move forward on “America’s Got Talent” (8 p.m., NBC).

Zach Braff guest-stars on “The Exes” (9:30 p.m., TV Land), starring fellow “Scrubs” alum Donald Faison.

Tonight: You know what works; follow that path. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)  Order might be nice in the face of the unpredictable. Your grounded nature allows you to accept a lot, but there is a point at which you can take no more. Tonight: Your treat. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)  You can’t help but smile at the excitement that occurs when you open up to others. You’ll see choices being made far more easily than in the past. Tonight: Whatever suits you. Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)  You might want to revamp your plans more than once. You could be overwhelmed by a personal matter, as positive as it might be. Tonight: Vanish early!
