JESSE CRIST, OF OVERBROOK, has the dock all to himself Tuesday as he fishes for crappie at Lone Star Lake. The lake, about 12 miles southwest of Lawrence, is owned by the county. The Public Works Department, after a review following two recent drowning deaths, doesn’t plan to seek any major changes to lake regulations.

to pursue adding signs that would warn swimmers that the depth of the lake can increase quickly. But Keith Browning, director of the Public Works Department, said his office doesn’t plan to seek significant changes to the countyowned lake’s swimming regulations. The county undertook a review of regulations at the lake after James Nichols Owens, 30, of Tonganoxie, drowned Aug. 13 while swimming at Lone Star, and a 7-year-old Kansas City, Mo., boy, Osiris M. Lumanyika, drowned July 2 near the swimming dock. “It is not clear that additional regulations would have prevented the two tragic drowning accidents

— Keith Browning, director of the Public Works Department at Lone Star Lake this summer,” Browning said. “Lone Star Lake has existed since the 1930s with very few drowning incidents over the life of the lake. It has a good safety record. “Implementing regulations that may severely limit swimming would greatly affect the lake experience many people now safely enjoy, perhaps without alleviating the risk of another tragic accident.” The lake, which is about 12 miles southwest of Lawrence, has never had lifeguards, and Browning said

the two recent drownings are the fifth and sixth that workers in his department can recall in the lake’s history. This summer’s drownings were the first in many years. The department is also asking Douglas County commissioners to prohibit swimming beneath the swimming dock because Browning said it can be dangerous, especially for children. Sheriff’s officers and park maintenance personnel patrol the lake periodically. “We are pursuing getting

other signs up there to let people know that the water does deepen fairly quickly there,” Browning said. Commissioners will consider several changes to regulations at the lake and campground as part of their meeting at 4 p.m. today at the Douglas County Courthouse, 1100 Mass. Two other major proposed regulation changes include prohibiting shooting fireworks in the lake’s park. Currently it’s allowed on days surrounding the Fourth of July, but Browning said the county spends significant time and money monitoring and cleaning up fireworks each year. Campsite fees would also increase $4 a day to $11 for a site without electricity and to $16 for one with electricity. — Reporter George Diepenbrock can be reached at 832-7144. Follow him at

TOPEKA — Gov. Sam Brownback’s administration on Tuesday said Kansas would not implement a health insurance exchange until the U.S. Supreme Court decides whether the federal health reform law is constitutional. The statement was made by Lt. Gov. Jeff Colyer as he and other Cabinet officials announced the award of a $135 million contract with Accenture of Austin, Texas, to put in Colyer place a computerized system that they said will make it easier for people to apply for social services and also increase identification of fraud in Medicaid and other programs. The Brownback administration went out of its way to say that although 90 percent of the funding for the planned Kansas Eligibility Enforcement System, or KEES, would come from the federal government, it will not come from the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act and it does not commit the state to develop an exchange. The exchanges are required under the health reform law and are designed to help determine eligibility for people to get subsidies to purchase insurance. Kansas had won a $31.5 million federal grant to implement the exchange. Brownback had initially supported the grant but then reversed field and rejected the funding. He said there were too many strings attached, but critics said he bowed to pressure within the Republican Party to fight the federal Please see HEALTH, page 2A

Surplus growth leads to call for restoration of arts funding By Scott Rothschild

TOPEKA — With the state surplus growing, and because Gov. Sam Brownback wrongly predicted Kansas would continue to receive federal arts funding, supporters of the arts on Tuesday called on the governor to restore state assistance to the Kansas Arts Commission. But Brownback’s office said that wasn’t going to happen. His spokeswoman, Sherriene Jones-Sontag, reiterated Brownback’s statement that arts funding was not a core function of government and that the governor wants to

“right-size” state government during tough economic times. “You don’t go out and buy art for the house when you are behind on the mortgage,” Jones-Sontag said. But several arts officials and House Democratic Leader Paul Davis of Lawrence said economic concerns are precisely why Brownback should restore the $689,000 to the Kansas Arts Commission that he vetoed. “This decision by Gov. Brownback was penny-wise and pound-foolish,” Davis said. Since Brownback’s veto, the National Endowment for the Arts and the MidAmerica Arts Alliance have

declared that Kansas is ineligible for $1.3 million in federal matching grants. Brownback and his administration Davis had earlier told legislators that the federal funding would continue to flow to Kansas. And Davis said that since the state’s current reserve fund totals $180 million and is growing, the state could afford to fund the Arts Commission. Several artists and arts officials from towns across the

state also urged Brownback to reverse his decision in his next budget proposal, saying the lack of state funding would result in lost jobs and arts projects, especially in rural areas. Louis Copt, a Lecompton artist who was designated earlier this year by the Kansas Arts Commission as the 2011 Governor’s Artist, said he was concerned about how Kansas would be portrayed outside the state, and how Kansas children would view the arts. “We have to show them the arts are alive in Kansas,” he said. Gail Parsons, executive director of the Junction City Arts Council, said the group has lost

both state and city funding, which affects the organization’s ability to raise private dollars. “When we lose public funding, it sends the message that this is not so important. People start backing off,” she said. Melissa Windsor, executive director of the Emporia Arts Council, said public assistance was crucial to operate the town’s new arts center that took years to plan and build. “Today it remains understaffed and underutilized due to a lack of public funding,” she said. — Statehouse reporter Scott Rothschild can be reached at 785-423-0668.

Book store owner declares bankruptcy Nebraska Book Co., which owns two Lawrence textbook retail stores, has declared for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in Delaware. The company owns Jayhawk Bookstore, 1420 Crescent Road, and University Book Shop, 1116 W. 23rd St. Both stores, along with the rest of the company’s more than 280 stores across the country, will continue operating as usual, said Alex Griffin, a spokeswoman for the company. “We’re not expecting anything to change operationally” at the retail level, Griffin said. “Our stores are extremely busy right now due to the start of the school year.” The company is undergoing a restructuring of its finances and looking to eliminate its debt, she said. and said the company ought to at least look at a new incubator facility that had been built on West Campus. Johnson said company leaders ended up spending more than two hours touring the facility and began thinking that a close connection to pharmaceutical researchers at KU may be more beneficial than having a close physical presence to a veterinary school. Johnson said connecting KU pharmaceutical research with the animal health industry could pay more dividends in the future. “We’re seeing an increasing number of animal health science companies looking to this region of the country,” Johnson said. “This will help get Lawrence more into that game.” State and regional economic development leaders also were hailing the decision. Bob Marcusse, president and CEO of the Kansas City Area Development Council, said the announcement brings more “credibility and prestige” to the area’s efforts to attract animal health companies. Marcusse said that in the last six years, 21 new animal health companies have located in the corridor between

Gift will fund grain bin rescue training Three Kansas grain industry organizations have awarded a $90,000 gift to the Kansas Fire and Rescue Training Institute in Lawrence for equipment to train Kansas firefighters and grain handlers for people trapped in grain bins and hoppers. The institute is part of Kansas University Continuing Education. “This gift gives us the resources to provide training that will undoubtedly save lives,” said institute director Glenn Pribbenow said. “We have an important responsibility to ensure that Kansas firefighters are prepared to meet these types of emergencies, and this training will help us continue to meet those needs.” The donation comes from the Kansas Grain and Feed Association, the Kansas Cooperative Council and the Kansas Farmers Service Association. “Safety is of primary concern to the grain industry,” said Tom R. Tunnell, the grain and feed association’s president and CEO. “First and foremost is training to prevent entrapments. But it is important that grain handlers and local firefighters be prepared to respond if ever the need arises.”

Columbia and Manhattan, and the companies have pledged to create more than 1,300 jobs and make about $900 million in capital investments. The deal also is expected to provide a boost to the West Campus incubator facility. The building now is at about 75 percent occupancy, and leaders of the center have begun planning for an expansion that would double space of the incubator facility, which originally was built with a combination of public funding from the city, the county, KU and the state’s bioscience authority. City commissioners have budgeted $500,000 in their 2012 budget to serve as seed money for what likely would be a $7 million to $8 million expansion project. “We’re about four years ahead of where we thought we would be at,” Johnson said of the incubator’s progress. “We thought it would take some time to develop, but it really hasn’t. The market has told us that there is a need for space that allows companies to easily collaborate with the university.” — City reporter Chad Lawhorn can be reached at 832-6362.

WikiLeaks site attacked The WikiLeaks website crashed Tuesday in an apparent cyberattack after the accelerated publication of tens of thousands of once-secret State Department cables by the anti-secrecy organization raised new concerns about the exposure of confidential U.S. embassy sources. “ is presently under attack,” the group said on Twitter late Tuesday. One hour later, the site and the cables posted there were inaccessible. WikiLeaks updated its Twitter account to say that it was “still under a cyberattack” and directed followers to search for cables on a mirror site or a separate search system, cablegatesearch. net. The apparent cyberattack comes after current and former American officials said the recently released cables — and concerns over the protection of sources — are creating a fresh source of diplomatic setbacks and embarrassment for the Obama administration. It was not immediately clear who was behind the attack. 2 | LIBYA

Rebels give Gadhafi ultimatum Libyan rebels say they’re closing in on Moammar Gadhafi and issued an ultimatum Tuesday to regime loyalists in the fugitive dictator’s hometown of Sirte, his main remaining bastion: surrender this weekend or face an attack. “We have a good idea where he is,” a top rebel leader said. The rebels, tightening their grip on Libya after a military blitz, also demanded that Algeria return Gadhafi’s wife and three of his children who fled there Monday. Granting asylum to his family, including daughter Aisha who gave birth in Algeria on Tuesday, was an “enemy act,” said Ahmed al-Darrad, the rebels’ interior minister. Rebel leaders insisted they are slowly restoring order in the war-scarred capital of Tripoli after a week of fighting, including deploying police and collecting garbage. Reporters touring Tripoli still saw chaotic scenes, including desperate motorists stealing fuel from a gas station. 3 | WYOMING

Blast at oil production site kills 3 An explosion has killed three workers who had been laying a fuel line at a Wyoming oil storage site, an oil company spokesman said. The blast at about 10 a.m. Monday near Glenrock, in a remote region of eastern Wyoming, sparked a 10-acre fire before it was brought under control, Samson Resources Co. spokesman Dennis Neill said. The fuel line where the blast victims had been working was intended to supply a heater treatment facility that separates oil from water as they’re pumped out of the ground. The workers were employed by a contractor that the Tulsa, Okla.-based Samson had been hired to bring an oil well back into production at the site, Neill said. The well wasn’t involved in the explosion and fire, which happened on the Hornbuckle Ranch, about 50 miles northeast of Casper. Neill declined to name the company that employed the workers. Samson officials were traveling to the area, and state and federal investigators were on the scene, he said. 4 | AFGHANISTAN

August deadliest for U.S. in war August has become the deadliest month yet for U.S. forces in the nearly 10-year-old war in Afghanistan, increasing pressure on the Obama administration to bring troops home sooner rather than later. The 66 U.S. service members killed this month eclipses the previous record of 65 killed in July 2010, according to an Associated Press tally. Nearly half the August deaths occurred when insurgents shot down a Chinook helicopter Aug. 6, killing 30 American troops, mostly elite Navy SEALs. Violence is being reported across Afghanistan despite the U.S.-led coalition’s drive to rout insurgents from their strongholds in the south. Though American military officials predicted high casualties this summer as the Taliban try to come back after recent offensives, the grim milestone increases pressure on the Obama administration to withdraw U.S. forces quickly.

Lawmaker tours safety net clinic, discusses health system By Karrey Britt

A handful of patients were waiting in the lobby of Health Care Access on Tuesday as Congressman Kevin Yoder toured the safety net clinic. The patients were low-income Douglas County residents who didn’t have insurance through an employer and couldn’t afford it on their own. “Safety net clinics provide a critical component to individuals who fall through the cracks, who don’t have a traditional form of insurance,” Yoder said. It was Yoder’s first visit to Health Care Access, 330 Maine. The clinic provided care for 1,200 patients through 3,213 appointments last year. The clinic receives no federal funding. About one-fourth of its funding comes through the city, county, United Way of Douglas County, grants and fundraisers. The bulk — $3.5 million annually — comes through donated services and time. After the tour, Yoder praised the clinic’s volunteers and staff.

missioner Bob Schumm, County Commissioner Nancy Thellman and Cathy Harding, executive director of the Kansas Association for the Medically Underserved. Harding asked about the Affordable Care Act and its chances of being fully implemented. Yoder said it is being debated with the court system and Congress. He thinks if the provision that requires all Americans to purchase insurance is deemed unconstitutional, then the chances of it surviving are slim.

TOPEKA — Kansas could be forced to halt, delay or cancel transportation projects if Congress doesn’t reauthorize a federal gasoline tax for highways, a state transportation official said Tuesday. The 18.3 cent federal gasoline tax is set to expire on Sept. 30 unless Congress votes to renew it. The money is the main federal revenue source given to states to help pay for transportation projects. Deputy Secretary Jerry Younger said Kansas has enough cash on hand in its highway program to keep existing projects going for 16 to 24 weeks. After that, the state would be forced to halt work on projects, delay awarding bids for new projects or cancel them. Many of the projects were part of a 10-year program that started in 2010. “If funding doesn’t get authorized then there’s really no mechanism for the Federal Highway Administration to make disbursements to the states,” Younger said. “We’ve kind of had this on our radar screen for some time and have made contingency plans.” There is no real sense of when — or if — Congress will vote on the tax once recess ends after Labor Day. Fiscal conservatives including Grover Norquist,

Fraud suspected by health contractor

Gas tax

and state officials investigate whether he embezzled as much as $1 million in Medicaid funding, authorities said. The official with Kansas Health Solutions was either fired or resigned after the nonprofit began an internal investigation following questions about the possible embezzlement arose two weeks ago, The ToHEALTH peka CapitalJournal reported Tuesday. The nonprofit’s chief executive officer, Michael Goldberg, confirmed the ouster and said it was unclear if the man had accomplices. He also said the exact amount of money missing from the organization has not been determined. “We were recently made aware of suspicious activity involving our accounts,” Goldberg told the newspaper. “It’s very disturbing. It is clearly in our interest to cooperate with any investigation.” Goldberg said in an interview Tuesday he could offer only limited comments because of the ongoing investigation and could not discuss the departure of the suspect, whom The Associated Press is not naming because no charges have been filed.

pressure for the levy to be dropped altogether. Younger said Kansas historically has paid about $8 million per week on ongoing projects. State taxes collected on the sale of gasoline in Kansas and registration fees provide funds for the state’s share. Kansas has enough funds to get through the next 16 to 24 weeks before having to make decisions on halting projects or delaying the start of others. Most of the new projects in the 2010 transportation program were designed to preserve the state’s road system, Younger said. If the federal money dries up, Kansas would scale back expansion or new construction projects and focus dollars on preserving other roads and bridges. Younger said the state has already made changes in

It’s our hope and belief that something will be done. We can’t see CONTINUED FROM PAGE 3A TOPEKA — A top executive of a Kansas nonprofit corporaanyone letting sometion that provides mental health thing this important gopresident of Americans for services for thousands of KanTax Reform, have increased ing by the wayside.” sans has lost his job as federal — Deputy Secretary Jerry Younger, on Congress voting to reauthorize a federal gasoline tax for highways policies regarding snow removal and mowing, looking to change practices to save money. But he said those changes didn’t save the state enough money to complete all the projects scheduled over the next several years. Proposals in Congress range from shifting a greater share of the burden to states for road projects to keeping revenues for the national highway trust fund flat. “Obviously, Congress has its work cut out and not a whole lot of time,” Younger said. “It’s our hope and belief that something will be done. We can’t see anyone letting something this important going by the wayside.”

“I believe if that provision were to be knocked down that the entire bill would be unworkable because that provision is one of the components that allowed some of the changes to be paid for by pushing everyone into the health system,” Yoder said. In the meantime, the executive branch, including Human and Health Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, is moving toward implementation of the new law. The House has passed a bill to repeal the law, but the Senate likely will not, Yoder said. “Everybody’s kind of in limbo right now and watching the courts, and we are watching the implementation of the bill on the executive side and I think everyone is taking a wait-and-see approach,” he said. Yoder voted to repeal the federal legislation. “I’m concerned that the bill that passed ultimately will not reduce the costs, but just really shift the burden of paying for it to other people and really not solve the long-term underlying problems that our health care system in this country faces,” he said. Two huge problems, he said, are the high costs of regulating drugs and malpractice insurance. He hopes there’s a continued push to get patients to focus on getting preventive services instead of emergency room care, like Health Care Access does. The clinic’s wellness services have grown during the past couple of years to include mental health care, social services and legal services — all of which can affect a person’s overall physical health. It also provides classes on topics such as budgeting and eating healthy. Scott Swedlund, vice president of the clinic, said, “Somebody’s going to get care somewhere, either the emergency room or jail. A budget cut doesn’t make it go away,” he said. Concerning federal funding for Medicaid and Medicare, Yoder said there’s a bipartisan effort in Washington to preserve both programs. But there’s a lot of debate in how that’s going to happen, especially as more and more people qualify for Medicare. Yoder said there’s “no silver bullet” in fixing the health care system. It’s going to take an effort from the community, state and national level. “We’ve all got to all work together,” he said. — Health reporter Karrey Britt can be reached at 832-7190.

Reid said he hoped that the more than six-feet-tall kiosks will serve as a place for students to obtain information. They will provide content from University Relations’ news feeds and social media accounts, he said. Terry said the kiosks may also feature games. The unions did place a

few restrictions on the kinds of advertising that could be used in the kiosks, according to the terms of the contract setting up the program. Axon Displays will sell the advertising, but can’t feature some kinds of ads, including ones for alcohol, tobacco, unlawful substances or any ads that compete with CocaCola, the exclusive beverage provider for the KU campus.

years in prison

A federal judge Tuesday ordered a Lawrence man to serve 10 years in prison for his role in a methamphetamine trafficking conspiracy, according to court records. And U.S. District Judge John W. Lungstrum ordered Anthony Wayne Sims to serve 10 years under post-release supervision after his prison term ends. Sims pleaded guilty in October 2010 to conspiracy

to manufacture, distribute and possess with intent to distribute more than 50 grams of methamphetamine. In his plea agreement Sims, who was 57 when he was convicted, admitted he provided an undercover officer with chemicals commonly used to manufacture methamphetamine. Beginning in December 2009, officers conducted a three-month investigation of five people involved in a drug and counterfeit money ring in Lawrence and Topeka. In February 2010, authorities raided the residence of Donald Milton Steele, 52, at 1706 N. 1500 Road east of Lawrence. A jury in July convicted Steele and Randy J. Dyke, 51, of Lawrence, of six counts, including possession with intent to distribute more than 50 grams of methamphetamine. Two other people, Robert D. Billinger, 35, of Missouri, and Kimberly M. Cline, 44, of Lawrence, have also pleaded guilty in connection with the case.

Resurfacing to begin on U.S. 24-40 A resurfacing project along a 10-mile stretch of U.S. Highway 24-40 is expected to begin Thursday. Work will be done on both directions of the highway, from just west of the Kansas Highway 16 intersection in Leavenworth County to the Kansas Highway 32 intersection in Douglas County. The road work will take place during daylight hours Monday through Saturday, and workers will guide traffic through the work zone. Delays are expected to be as long as 15 minutes, and the $825,000 project is expected to be completed in mid-October.

Notable ! Some Federal Reserve

officials pushed in August for a more aggressive response to the economy’s slowdown. They settled for a plan to keep rates near zero for another two years and won agreement to discuss more options at an extended meeting in September. Minutes of the Aug. 9 policy meeting released Tuesday show that Fed officials discussed a range of actions, including another round of Treasury bond purchases. Some Fed officials said a weaker economy called for such a step. Fed officials in the end said they planned to keep rates low until at least mid-2013, assuming the economy remained weak. They also added a second day to their September meeting. That raised speculation that the Fed would announce some further action after that meeting.

Consumers gloomy, but spending says otherwise By Anne D’Innocenzio and Christopher S. Rugaber Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Economists have advice for anyone worried that consumers are too fearful to keep spending: Look at what they’re doing, not what they’re saying. A survey of consumer confidence shows that Americans were spooked early this month by the standoff over the debt ceiling, a downgrade of U.S. long-term debt and a swoon in stock prices. But maybe only temporarily. If stock prices stay steady, consumers will likely keep spending, and the economy should improve modestly in the months ahead, economists say. Most downplayed the results of a Conference Board survey released Tuesday that showed consumers were in a gloomy mood in early August. “They tend to register their anxiety about the future in these surveys ... without actually curtailing their spending,” said Chris Rupkey, chief financial economist at Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi UFJ. The board said its consumer confidence index sank to 44.5 in August, a 15-point drop from July. That was a much sharper fall than expected. And it brought the index to its lowest point since April 2009. A reading above 90 would show the economy was on solid footing. The report coincided with similarly glum results from a survey of business and con-

sumer sentiment in Europe. In that poll, European retailers were pessimistic about the future, and consumers were fearful of losing their jobs. A major factor was Europe’s debt crisis. For August, economists don’t expect Americans to cut their spending sharply, if at all. Most foresee consumer spending, which drives about 70 percent of the economy, rising faster in the July-September period than in the preceding three months. Ken Perkins of Retail Metrics Inc., a research firm, noted that the mood of consumers has been downbeat all year. Yet sales at retail chains have remained relatively healthy. “There’s been a little bit of a disconnect,” Perkins said. “Consumers say one thing and do another.” Ken Mayland, president of ClearView Economics, said he doesn’t even pay attention to the Conference Board’s survey or a similar one issued by Thomson Reuters and the University of Michigan. “These confidence indicators can lead you astray,” he said. Mayland looks instead at the savings rate, which reflects consumers’ actual behavior. On Monday, the government said the household savings rate dipped to a fourmonth low of 5 percent in July. Consumers spent money a bit faster than they earned it. “The tempo of the economy seems like it’s picking up a bit,” Mayland said.

Obama looks to spur private sector hiring By Jim Kuhnhenn Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Limited in his ability to create jobs through direct spending, President Barack Obama is considering measures to encourage the private sector to free up its cash reserves and hire more workers to Obama ease the nation’s unemployment crush. As Obama prepares to unveil a new jobs agenda next week, his aides are reviewing options that would provide tax incentives to employers who expand their payrolls. That approach is a more indirect effort to spur the economy and relies less on government intervention and massive public works projects.

Among the proposals circulating in the White House is a $33 billion tax credit that Obama first proposed early last year but that Congress whittled into a smaller oneyear package. Under one version of the plan, employers would receive a tax credit of up to $5,000, subtracted from their share of federal payroll taxes, for every net new hire. White House officials caution that the overall jobs plan is still subject to change. The tax credit, however, is a relatively untested idea. Congress passed a version in March 2010, known as the HIRE Act, which provided $13 billion in tax credits to qualified employers who hired new workers. But there is no government data to track its success. “The HIRE Act was very small,” said Mark Zandi, chief economist at Moody’s Analytics and an occasional adviser to Democrats and

Republicans. “It really didn’t add to payrolls.” “It would have to be bigger,” he added. “Something more along the lines that the Obama administration proposed in 2010.” While promising a major jobs package, Obama is hamstrung by budget cuts and a tight debt ceiling that he had a hand in negotiating. As a result, economists predict that while the president’s initiatives could eliminate some drag on the economy and maintain the status quo, they won’t be enough to propel it to new heights. Obama’s jobs package is designed to supplement other proposals already in the pipeline, including free trade agreements with South Korea, Colombia and Panama and the renewal of a highway construction bill. Today, Obama will call on Congress to pass federal highway legislation before the current law expires Sept. 30.

Food, water rushed to cutoff towns By John Curran Associated Press

NEWFANE, VT. — National Guard helicopters rushed food and water Tuesday to a dozen cut-off Vermont towns after the rainy remnants of Hurricane Irene washed out roads and bridges in a deluge that took many people in the landlocked New England state by surprise. “As soon as we can get help, we need help,” Liam McKinley said by cellphone from a mountain above floodstricken Rochester, Vt. Up to 11 inches of rain from the weekend storm turned placid streams into churning, brown torrents that knocked homes off their foundations, flattened trees and took giant bites out of the asphalt across the countryside. At least three people died in Vermont. “I think that people are still a little shell-shocked right now. There’s just a lot of disbelief on people’s faces. It came through so quickly, and there’s so much damage,” Gail Devine, director of the Woodstock Recreation Center, said as volunteers moved furniture out of the flooded basement and shoveled out thick mud that filled the center’s two swimming pools. As crews raced to repair the roads, the National Guard began flying in supplies to the towns of Cavendish, Granville, Hancock, Killington-Mendon, Marlboro, Pittsfield, Plymouth, Rochester, Stockbridge, Strafford, Stratton and Wardsboro. The Guard also used heavy-duty vehicles to bring relief to flood-stricken communities still reachable by road. The cut-off towns ranged in population from under 200 (Stratton) to nearly 1,400 (Cavendish).

Disaster aid account faces shortfall WASHINGTON (AP) — The government’s main disaster aid account is running woefully short of money as the Obama administration confronts damages from Hurricane Irene that could run into billions of dollars. With less than $800 million in its disaster aid coffers, the Federal Emergency Management Agency has been forced to freeze rebuilding projects from disasters dating to Hurricane Katrina to conserve money for emergency needs in the wake of Irene. Lawmakers from states ravaged by tornadoes this spring, like Missouri and Alabama, are especially furious. “If it’s a life-and-death situation, where someone needs to be Medevac-ed or taken to a hospital, we would get a helicopter there to airlift them out, if we could get close to them. A lot of these areas are mountainous areas where there may not be a place to land,” said Mark Bosma, a spokesman for Vermont Emergency Management. There were no immediate reports of anyone in dire condition being rescued by helicopter. But it took a relay operation involving two ambulances and an all-terrain vehicle to take a Killington woman in respiratory distress to a hospital in Rutland, about 13 miles away, after floodwaters severed the road between the two communities, Rutland Regional Medical Center President Tom Hubner said. The patient, whose name was not released, was doing fine, he said. In Rochester, where telephones were out and damage

The shortfalls in FEMA’s disaster aid account have been obvious to lawmakers on Capitol Hill for months — and privately acknowledged to them by FEMA — but the White House has opted against asking for more money, riling many lawmakers. “Despite the fact that the need ... is well known,” Reps. Robert Aderholt, R-Ala., and David Price, D-N.C., wrote the administration last month, “it unfortunately appears that no action is being taken by the administration.” The lawmakers chair the panel responsible for FEMA’s budget. was severe, people could be seen from helicopters standing in line outside a grocery store. McKinley said the town’s restaurants and a supermarket were giving food away rather than let it spoil, and townspeople were helping each other. “We’ve been fine so far. The worst part is not being able to communicate with the rest of the state and know when people are coming in,” he said. He said government agencies did a good job of warning people about the storm. “But here in Vermont, I think we just didn’t expect it and didn’t prepare for it,” he said. “I thought, how could it happen here?” All together, the storm has been blamed for at least 42 deaths in 12 states. More than 2.5 million people from North Carolina to Maine were still without electricity Tuesday, three days after the hurricane churned up the Eastern Seaboard.

Justice replaces 3 officials over law enforcement operation gone awry By Pete Yost Associated Press

WASHINGTON — The Justice Department replaced three officials Tuesday who played critical roles in a flawed law enforcement operation aimed at major gun-trafficking networks on the Southwest border. The department announced that the acting director of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and the U.S. attorney in Arizona had resigned and an administration official said a prosecutor who Melson worked on the operation was reassigned to civil cases. The operation, known as Fast and Furious, was Burke designed to track small-time gun buyers at several Phoenix-area gun shops up the chain to make cases against major weapons traffickers. It was a response to longstanding criticism of ATF for concentrating on small-time gun violations and failing to attack the kingpins of weapons trafficking. A congressional investigation of the program has turned up evidence that ATF lost track of many of the more than 2,000 guns linked to the operation. The Justice Department inspector general also is looking into the operation at the request of Attorney General Eric Holder. The operation has resulted in charges against 20 people and more may be charged. Kenneth Melson will be replaced as ATF’s acting chief by B. Todd Jones, the U.S. attorney in Minnesota. With Republicans in Congress and the department bickering over the investigation, Melson finally testified recently to Hill investigators in private. He said his department superiors “were doing more damage control than anything” and trying to keep the controversy away from top officials.

Also leaving was Dennis Burke, U.S. attorney in Arizona, whose office was deeply involved in Operation Fast and Furious. Burke will be replaced on an acting basis by his first assistant, Ann Scheel. In a related change, the line prosecutor in the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Phoenix who worked on the Fast and Furious investigation, Emory Hurley, was reassigned from

criminal cases to civil case work, according to an administration official, who spoke on condition of anonymity about the personnel matter. The moves are the latest and most significant effort by the Justice Department to address the controversy. In earlier personnel changes, three ATF agents were laterally transferred starting in May from operational positions to administrative roles.

K-10 corridor Kansas Highway 10 might a good candidate to be designated as a safety corridor.


t’s no coincidence that when Kansas lawmakers increased the speed limit on most major four-lane highways and interstates from 70 mph to 75 mph on July 1, they left Kansas Highway 10 off the list. The commuter highway linking Johnson County to Lawrence is a dangerous, and too often deadly, stretch of roadway. The Kansas Highway 10 safety committee was shown statistics last week that 15 percent of K-10 drivers travel faster than 77 mph within the 70 mph speed limit zones. There is also concern about the number of drivers sending text messages as they travel, frequently taking their eyes off the road to look at their phones. As the first recommendation from the group — made up of Douglas and Johnson county officials and residents and formed by Gov. Sam Brownback to study whether the state should put cable median barriers along the highway — it will ask the Legislature to designate the stretch of K-10 as a highway safety corridor. State transportation officials in Washington, New Mexico and Virginia said highway safety corridors have helped reduce crashes and save lives along dangerous stretches. In New Mexico, department of transportation spokeswoman Megan Arredondo said the state saw 275 fewer crashes, or a 28 percent reduction, from 2001 to 2008 in its 12 safety corridors for areas that have a high number of injuries and deaths. Law enforcement has the authority to double fines on drivers who speed in the areas. Highway safety officials in other states urged Kansas to get input from the community and law enforcement agencies before setting up a highway safety corridor that could include more signs warning drivers, extra traffic patrols and increased fines. Still, when he heard a description of K-10 between Lawrence and the suburban Kansas City area, the head of a safety corridor in Virginia said he thought it could be a good candidate to become a safety corridor. Sen. Tom Holland, D-Baldwin City, said at last week’s K-10 safety committee meeting he intends to propose legislation in January and seek bipartisan support for creating a K-10 safety corridor. A danger persists along K-10 and perhaps such a safety corridor can help address the problem. It should at least be considered.

Death a blow to al-Qaida WASHINGTON — The death of Atiyah Abd al-Rahman in an Aug. 22 drone attack in Pakistan may appear to be just another in the revolving-door fatalities among al-Qaida’s operations chiefs. But it was a crucial blow to the core group that once surrounded Osama bin Laden. Atiyah, as he was known to analysts, was bin Laden’s channel to the world. Their correspondence was the most important prize taken from bin Laden’s compound when he was killed May 2. They talked about everything: strategy, personnel, operations, political setbacks. Whatever thread still held al-Qaida together passed from bin Laden through to Atiyah. The Libyan-born Atiyah’s death blunts al-Qaida’s ability to stage a new mega-attack against America; it brings the top leadership of the group closer to extinction; and it increases the likelihood that the organization’s center of gravity will shift from Pakistan’s tribal areas to one of the affiliates, such as the robust al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula, based in Yemen. Asked recently to name the most important remaining leader in al-Qaida, a senior U.S. official had said it was Atiyah. He explained that the nominal successor to bin Laden, Ayman alZawahiri, was actually a secondary figure — more a leader of the group’s Egyptian wing than of al-Qaida as a whole. It would be

Atiyah’s death is especially important as the 10th anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks on the United States approaches — and not just for symbolic reasons.

in America’s interest if Zawahiri rather than Atiyah were dominant, this official said, because Zawahiri was a divisive figure whose ad-hoc tactics were less threatening to America. One of the subjects discussed frequently between Atiyah and bin Laden was whether al-Qaida’s ferociously violent tactics were alienating Muslims in the countries where it operated. That led to a fascinating 2005 missive from Atiyah to Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, the head of al-Qaida in Iraq, chiding him for targeting Shiite Muslims in his scorched-earth campaign in Iraq against America and its allies. And in more recent years,

the two discussed the danger of seeking an Islamic “caliphate” in areas where al-Qaida appeared strong, since that extremist move would likely alienate other Muslims. Better, they reasoned, to keep assaulting America. Atiyah’s death is especially important as the 10th anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks on the United States approaches — and not just for symbolic reasons. Bin Laden had been working with Atiyah to plan a spectacular strike against a U.S. target, pegged to the 9/11 anniversary. It’s not clear how far that planning had progressed, but whatever its level, it will be hampered, maybe even disrupted, by the death of the man whom bin Laden charged with organizing the details of the plot. Atiyah fell to a Predator drone attack, the weapon that he and bin Laden had complained about so bitterly in their correspondence. Atiyah had told his boss that this U.S. “intelligence war,” as bin Laden had called it, had made it nearly impossible for al-Qaida to move, communicate, recruit or train in the tribal areas of Pakistan. They had discussed whether al-Qaida should move its headquarters to someplace safer. That relocation seems more likely, now that the man who anchored the group’s presence in Pakistan is dead.

Big oil gamble

To the editor: The Aug. 27 article “Kansans Upset about TransCanada pipeline” needs correction or clarification on several points. First, it is not quite the case that oil is being supplied “to the U.S.” If that were the case, why construct such a long pipeline? Why not just build refineries in North Dakota? The pipeline is headed to “the refineries on the Gulf Coast” because the refined oil can then be loaded on barges and sent anywhere in the world, to the highest bidder, just like any oil produced from American wells. Obviously if there are any long-term job effects from this process they will benefit Texas, exclusively. The article later refers to “Nebraska’s Ogallala Aquifer,” which of course is also our own Ogallala Aquifer. The increasing salinity of the water in this formation is bad enough without the additional pollution of oil spills. Even small cracks in the line will create air and water pollution. And how many hundred thousand gallons of water will be required to move this oil shale (not “oil sands”) through the pipeline? The state of Nebraska has been putting up a fight on this despite energy interests there. Texas and Oklahoma are always ready to let big oil gamble with — David Ignatius is a columnist for people’s health and safety. PresWashington Post Writers Group. ident Obama, it appears, is our last hope. Richard Hardin, Lawrence


“Now is the season of the year when the sportsman spends his evenings oiling and polishing up his trusty double barrel, patching up his hunting clothes, YEARS and preparing to pitch his camp out AGO the ducks and the geese along IN 1911 among some stream, there to lay in wait for them. But he must wait until the first of September to take his first shot. Tomorrow is that date. However, there will be little hunting yet, as it is still too warm for the ducks to fly but some of the most ardent of the huntsmen have already seen a couple of the flock.”


Rubio may be a rising star In my high school days before sex and environmental education and the general dumbing down of the population, memorization of some Shakespeare was expected in Miss Kauffman’s 12th grade English class. A favorite I still recall is this line spoken by Brutus in “Julius Caesar”: “There is a tide in the affairs of men, which, taken at the flood, leads on to fortune; omitted, all the voyage of their life is bound in shallows and in miseries...” Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., repeatedly says in various ways it is too soon, or he isn’t ready, for higher office, such as vice president. He’s been in the Senate for a little more than seven months and has delivered only two major speeches — his maiden speech on the Senate floor and one last week at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in Simi Valley, Calif. In the Reagan Library speech, Rubio laid out his philosophical foundation, something that must be at the heart of any policy. Defining the proper role of government ought to be the central issue in the coming presidential campaign. Indeed, it should occupy our thoughts between campaigns because those of us who pay income tax are not getting a good return on our investment. Here’s Rubio: “We have the opportunity — within our lifetimes — to actually craft a proper role for government in our nation that will allow us to come closer than any Americans have ever come to our collective vision of a nation where both prosperity and compassion exist side by side.” That takes the “compassionate conservatism” of George W.

Cal Thomas

Bush to a different level. To Rubio, prosperity is not the opposite of compassion. Rather, the two are — or should be — joined. Prosperity provides the means by which people can be compassionate to those truly in need, such as the disabled and elderly. It is also the ticket out of dependency for people who can work but have been robbed of their dignity by addiction to a government check. Dignity leads to many other character qualities, which advance the true welfare of an individual, benefiting society. Someone with dignity, self-regard and respect for others is unlikely to take part in a flash mob attack. Rubio points to a path beyond the familiar “either-or” debate; beyond envy of the wealthy and multiple and ineffective programs to liberate the “poor.” This repetitive scenario has produced, said Rubio, “a government that not even the richest and most prosperous nation on the face of the Earth can fund or afford to pay for. An extraordinary tragic accomplishment, if you can call it that.” Rubio went further than what might be expected of a Republican, acknowledging his party is partly responsible for the growth of gov-

ernment: “I know that it is popular in my party to blame the president, the current president. But the truth is the only thing this president has done is accelerate policies that were already in place and were doomed to fail. All he is doing through his policies is making the day of reckoning come faster, but it was coming nonetheless.” And then there is this, which shatters the left’s stereotype about the right: “Conservatism is not about leaving people behind. Conservatism is about empowering people to catch up, to give them the tools ... that make it possible for them to access all the hope, all the promise, all the opportunity that America offers. And our programs to help them should reflect that.” If this is not a speech that lays the foundation for a Rubio run for higher office, it is a speech that ought to begin a major transition from costly and ineffective government programs to a renewed empowerment of individuals. No one, perhaps not even Rubio, can know for certain whether he is “ready” for higher office. President Obama has proven he wasn’t ready. Some leaders don’t know they can lead until leadership is thrust upon them. The right philosophy is key and the Reagan Library speech proves that Rubio has the most important ingredient of any leader: vision. Read it, be inspired and then consider whether Rubio’s tide is rising (http://www. rubio-emphasizes-prosperityand-compassion-speech-reaganpresidential-library_591327.html.) — Cal Thomas is a columnist for Tribune Media Services.

To the editor: Recently, I queried Rep. Lynn Jenkins regarding the chaotic situation with the deficit. In her response, Jenkins stated the following: “It took us more than 230 years to get into our current fiscal mess and with a Democrat Senate and President Obama in the White House it is an important step as we continue to fight to reform Washington and get our nation on a course toward financial accountability.” This statement is inaccurate and disproved by these historical facts, as cited in an article by Robert J. Elisberg in a Huffington Post article in February 2011. 1) During the Reagan and George H.W. Bush administrations the national debt increased a combined whopping 35.6 percent. It was the largest debt in that time in U.S. history. Mr. Reagan alone tripled the national debt from $997 billion to $2.6 trillion. 2) Under President George W. Bush the national debt increased by a combined 21.7 percent. The budget went from a $128 billion surplus to a $482 billion deficit. The national debt during this administration doubled from $5.7 trillion to $10.7 trillion. Vice President Dick Cheney was quoted as saying, “Reagan proved deficits don’t matter.” 3) In Bill Clinton’s administration, the national debt decreased. It went down by a combined 9.7 percent. Further, he balanced the U.S. budget. 4) In every Republican administration since Nixon-Ford in 1973, the national debt increased in America. Every reduction of national debt has occurred during a Democratic administration. Republicans slam the Jimmy Carter presidency for incompetence. The national debt went down 3.3 percent during the Carter administration. Those are the facts. Patrick Pritchard, Lawrence

‘Fake Beard Bandit’ suspect arrested OKLAHOMA CITY — The FBI in Oklahoma says a man suspected of being the socalled ‘Fake Beard Bandit’ who robbed eight banks in four states has been arrested in Tulsa. Special Agent Clay Simmonds in Oklahoma City says 39-year-old Jason Andrew Day was arrested at his home in Tulsa last Friday by agents acting on a tip. Simmonds says Day is suspected of bank robberies in Oklahoma, Arkansas, Kansas and Missouri in which the robber wore a fake beard. He was originally arrested as a suspect in an attempted robbery and the robbery of banks in Fort Smith, Ark. The Tulsa County Jail website shows Day is being held without bond. An attorney was not listed for Day.

LAWRENCE JOURNAL-WORLD ! !"Wednesday, August 31, 2011


Tom Keegan

Opurum decision pays off It seemed like such a gross miscalculation and nothing that happened in the North Dakota State game changed that perception. One year later, it’s not too soon to hand down a verdict: Turner Gill’s decision to move Toben Opurum, the team’s leading rusher as a true freshman, to defense made Kansas University a better football team and Opurum a better NFL prospect. KU would have defeated North Dakota State, instead of losing 6-3, had Opurum been the starting running back. But would the Jayhawks have upset Georgia Tech the next week without James Sims rushing for 101 yards, Georgia Tech coming into the game flat in light of KU’s first-week flop and Kansas on fire emotionally looking to erase the season-opening embarrassment? Probably not. Either way, this is the season the position switch will begin to pay off in a big way for Kansas and Opurum. It was difficult for Opurum to see that when he practiced with the defense for the first time Aug. 19, 2010. Naturally, he gave thought to transferring. “I talked to my family about it,” he said. “Really, we just tried to come up with the best decision for me academically and football-wise. When I started to get a chance to play more on defense and get more comfortable with what I was doing, I decided to stay, and I’m glad I did.” He said all the right things at the time, but his body language revealed his spirit had been challenged. “It was a tough thing really for me and my family and a lot of people wanted to question coach Gill and bash him about it, but the coaches watch our every move on the football field, they evaluate talent and they know what they want to accomplish,” said Opurum, the only non-senior among the four co-captains. “They want to win just as much as anyone else. For me it was a humbling experience. I had to humble myself and realize I could help the team on the other side of the ball and so far it’s a move that’s helped.” Opurum looks a lot bigger but he said he weighs just 245 pounds, roughly five more than as a freshman running back. He definitely looks more sculpted. He said his body fat has been trimmed “4 or 5 percent” since the beginning of summer conditioning and he’s “in better shape and faster” than at any point in his life. As a hybrid outside linebacker/defensive end, Opurum will be moved around in defensive coordinator Vic Shealy’s 3-4 defense in a way to give him the edge in hunting the quarterback. Opurum said he has a sacks goal. “In my head I do,” Opurum said. “It’s like they say, if you don’t talk up your dreams, they can’t shoot them down, so that’s something I’ll hold onto myself.” If he reaches that number, he’ll thank defensive line coach Buddy Wyatt and D-line graduate assistant Kevin Carberry the way he singled them out Tuesday, when talking about how much he learns when they show him film of NFL passrushers. A Cowboys fan from Plano, Texas, Opurum, 6-foot-2, 245 pounds, enjoys watching outside linebacker DeMarcus Ware, 6-4, 257, rush the passer. Opurum has a better chance of one day wearing the super-cool Dallas blue star on his helmet playing Ware’s position than the position played by Felix Jones.

KANSAS UNIVERSITY TIGHT END TIM BIERE (86) ATTEMPTS TO MAKE A CATCH as he’s covered by North Dakota State defenders Chad Wilson (45) and Cyrus Lemon in this Sept. 4, 2010 file photo at Memorial Stadium. The Jayhawks lost the infamous game, 6-3, in their season opener last season. The stunning defeat is still fresh on the minds of many current KU players.

NDSU debacle still fresh in mind of many players By Matt Tait

It’s been 361 days since the Kansas University football team opened the Turner Gill era with a loss to North Dakota State in front of a stunned Memorial Stadium crowd. To many, the memory of the 6-3 setback remains fresh. To the players who were there that night — in uniform, on the field — just talking about the game is tough to do in specific terms. Senior tight end Tim Biere, who played what he called one of the worst games of his life in the loss, refers to it only vaguely. “I had a heck of a game that game,” said Biere, never men-

MORE INSIDE Matt Tait’s football notebook includes: # Turner Gill looks to guide Jayhawks to fast start Saturday # Three Jayhawks suspended # Four captains announced Notebook on page 3B. tioning the name of the opponent. “We’ll be sure to remember that game from last year. It’s kind of the same situation to an extent.” The it, in this case, is KU’s season opener against McNeese State, slated for 6 p.m. Saturday at the same stadium where the Jayhawks were the victims of one of the worst losses in pro-

gram history. The reason Biere referenced North Dakota State when looking ahead to Saturday’s matchup with McNeese State was because, like the Bison, the Cowboys come to Lawrence wearing the label of FCS opponent, one of the most dangerous tags any FBS program can see early in the season. It’s not that the Jayhawks, or any other BCS conference squad, should be worried that they can’t compete with teams from the division formerly known as I-AA. It’s that playing those teams presents a lose-lose scenario just about every time. Win and it’s no big deal. You did what you were supposed to. But lose? Well, then people will be talking about that game for years to come.

In the days since the loss to NDSU, Gill and the Jayhawks have talked very little about it. The key, Gill has said all along, is that the team learned from the deflating feeling and pressed on, determined not to let it take place again. “They know what has happened in the past,” Gill said Tuesday at his first weekly news conference of the season. “We talk about what you can learn from last year and how you are going to change that. More importantly, we’re talking about how we already have changed it.” The approach appears to have worked. Please see FOOTBALL, page 3B


Arkansas prospect to visit KU on Sept. 24 By Gary Bedore

Archie Goodwin, the No. 12-rated prospect in the college basketball recruiting class of 2012, told on Tuesday he will attend Kansas University’s Sept. 24 Legends of the Phog alumni game as part of an Goodwin has official campus visit. a final list of Goodwin, a 6-foot-4, Kansas University 180-pound senior shooting and seven other guard from Sylvan High in Little schools

Rock, Ark., said he would visit Kentucky for its Midnight Madness event in mid-October. The No. 2-rated shooting guard in the class (behind Ricardo Ledo, 6-5, Notre Dame High, Fitchburg, Mass.) has a final list of KU, Arkansas, Kentucky, Baylor, Florida, Memphis, Georgetown and Missouri. The country’s top prospect, Shabazz Muhammad, a 6-6 senior from Bishop Gorman High in Las Vegas, also will visit UK for

Midnight Madness, according to Muhammad has also said he plans on visiting KU at a yet-to-be-determined date. He has set an in-home visit with KU coach Bill Self for Sept. 14. Goodwin and Muhammad are both expected to wait until April to sign with a school. ESPN’s Paul Biancardi this summer had this to say about Goodwin after watching him at the AAU Super Showcase in

Florida: “He continues to score at a rapid pace and help his team win games. Contact doesn’t faze him as he constantly attacks the basket off the bounce and often finds himself at the free-throw line. He is like a freight train in transition using his strength, power and dribble to get wherever he wants. He dominates with the dribble drive, but must continue to work on his jumper Please see HOOPS, page 3B


Group to discuss replacements if A&M leaves By Kristie Rieken Associated Press Sports Writer

The Big 12 Conference board of directors has formed a committee to look at possible replacements for Texas A&M if the Aggies leave the league as expected. Missouri Chancellor Brady Deaton, who serves as the board chairman, said Tuesday

that the committee could also address the possibility of expanding the conference even if Texas A&M stays put. He said the committee is looking at expansion in the “broadest context” and will make a recommendation to the board concerning whether expanding the conference “by one or more members” is beneficial.

Deaton said the Big 12 board has not received notification that the Aggies plan to leave. The Aggies have said they are interested in joining the Southeastern Conference and they received a letter from Big 12 Commissioner Dan Beebe on Monday outlining the withdrawal procedure — including “financial provisions,” presumably exit fees — if they go.

Texas A&M spokesman Jason Cook would not provide any other details of the letter or comment on what A&M’s next step might be. Texas A&M President R. Bowen Loftin sent a letter to the Big 12 last week formally telling Beebe they are exploring their options. The league’s board of directors

The Aggies have expressed interest in leaving the Big 12 for the SEC. When that will happen is Please see A&M, page 3B anyone’s guess

Nadal wins messy match at U.S. Open By Howard Fendrich Associated Press Tennis Writer

NEW YORK â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Rafael Nadalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first match as defending U.S. Open champ was hardly a tour de force. He would fall behind in a set, then come back. Fall behind, then come back. His serve was broken six times; that happened a total of five times in seven matches during his 2010 run to the Open title. His shots didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have their normal depth. He needed to save seven set points during the second set. Locked in a struggle for nearly three hours, the second-seeded Nadal eventually got past 98thranked Andrey Golubev of Kazakhstan 6-3, 7-6 (1), 7-5 on Tuesday night to reach the second round of the U.S. Open.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Well,â&#x20AC;? Nadal conceded, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was a little bit lucky to win today in straight sets.â&#x20AC;? Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s for sure. And Nadal expended a lot more energy Tuesday than Novak Djokovic, who overtook the Spaniard at No. 1 in the rankings last month. Indeed, it didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t take too long to see that Djokovicâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s right shoulder is feeling fine. He began his firstround match with a 121 mph service winner. Four points later, he closed that game with a 120 mph ace. He whipped forehands exactly where he wanted them. He returned well, too. Playing his first match since Aug. 21, when he quit because of a sore and tired shoulder, the topseeded Djokovic began setting aside any questions about his fitness for Flushing Meadows, build-

NCAA issues suspensions for Miami players By Tim Reynolds Associated Press Sports Writer

CORAL GABLES, FLA. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Quarterback Jacory Harris and 11 other Miami players who accepted extra benefits from former booster Nevin Shapiro will be allowed by the NCAA to play again, the first sanctions in a scandal that continues to overshadow the Hurricanes. In all, 12 players must pay at least some restitution. Of those, eight will miss at least one game. The harshest penalties handed down Tuesday were reserved for those who took gifts from Shapiro while being recruited. Defensive lineman Olivier Vernon will sit out six games, while Ray Ray Armstrong â&#x20AC;&#x201D; considered among the nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s top safeties â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and tight end Dyron Dye will miss four games apiece. They are three of eight players, including Harris, who must sit out games and make restitution before they can be reinstated. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think it was probably fair,â&#x20AC;? Miami coach Al Golden told The Associated Press Tuesday night. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Clearly, whatever transpired, it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t as over-the-top as everybody was initially reporting and all of those things. The NCAA and the university felt there was mistakes made ... and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve accepted that. And now weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re moving forward.â&#x20AC;? Miami opens its season at Maryland on Monday night. The Hurricanes still might face many more sanctions as the NCAAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s investigation into Miamiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s compliance practices continues. And with Tuesdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ruling, the school has joined a growing list of schools with major football programs to be investigated by the NCAA for rule-breaking in the past 18 months. Others include Southern California, Ohio State, Auburn, Oregon, Michigan, North Carolina, Georgia Tech and LSU. Harris, Sean Spence, Travis Benjamin, Marcus Forston and Adewale Ojomo â&#x20AC;&#x201D; all of whom were likely starters â&#x20AC;&#x201D; must sit out one game and make restitution for accepting benefits after enrolling at the school. Four other players must repay small amounts, all under $100, but will not miss any games.

ing a 6-0, 5-1 lead before 197thranked qualifier Conor Niland of Ireland stopped after 44 minutes. Niland had food poisoning. The 24-year-old Serb improved to 58-2 with nine titles in 2011, including at Wimbledon and the Australian Open. Djokovic is on his way to compiling one of the greatest seasons in tennis history, particularly if he can earn his first championship at the U.S. Open, where in the past four years heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lost twice in the final and twice in the semifinals. Day 2 of the tournament also included a second consecutive firstround departure from the U.S. Open by the sixth-seeded French Open champion Li Na. Since becoming Chinaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first major singles champion at Paris in June, Li has gone 5-6, exiting in the second

round at Wimbledon, then losing 6-2, 7-5 to 53rd-ranked Simona Halep of Romania on Tuesday. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the first time in 40 years that none of the womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s champions at a seasonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first three Grand Slam tournaments reached the second round at the U.S. Open. Wimbledon champion Petra Kvitova lost her first-round match Monday, while Australian Open champion Kim Clijsters withdrew because of a stomach muscle injury. The active leader for womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Grand Slam titles, Serena Williams, followed Nadal in Arthur Ashe Stadium on Tuesday night. Earlier, top-seeded Caroline Wozniacki â&#x20AC;&#x201D; ranked No. 1 for most of the past year but still in search of Grand Slam trophy No. 1 â&#x20AC;&#x201D; defeated 125th-ranked Nuria Llagostera Vives of Spain 6-3, 6-1.



Nats set Strasburgâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s return ATLANTA â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Washington manager Davey Johnson has confirmed plans for Stephen Strasburg to make his first 2011 start for the Nationals on Sept. 6. Strasburg will start for Double-A Harrisburg on Thursday. It is expected to be his final rehab appearance in his comeback from Tommy John surgery to repair a torn ulnar collateral ligament in his pitching elbow.


2012 Games will be online too


Ex-player was out for revenge ATLANTA â&#x20AC;&#x201D; New details are emerging about an NBA player charged in the shooting death of an Atlanta woman. A report obtained Tuesday by The Associated Press said Javaris Crittenton was robbed of $55,000 worth of jewelry in April. Authorities say Crittenton was retaliating when he shot Jullian Jones on Aug. 19, but they say she was not the intended target. Police have not said who they think Crittenton was after. Jonesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; neighbor Trontavious Stephens says he was with Jones when she was shot, but he doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know why they were targeted. Crittenton was arrested Monday at a Southern California airport. Crittentonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s attorney says his client will be exonerated. In April, Crittenton told police he was leaving a barber shop when he was robbed of his diamond necklace and watch.

Vick signs $100M contract PHILADELPHIA â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Just more than two years after being released from prison, out of work, mired in bankruptcy and facing an uncertain future, Michael Vick is again on top of the world. Vick, who served 19 months at federal penitentiary at Leavenworth on felony dogfighting charges before joining the Philadelphia Eagles as a third-string quarterback two years ago, signed one of the richest contracts in NFL history on Tuesday. Vickâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s six-year, $100 million deal makes him the third-highest-paid player in the NFL, behind only Patriots quarterback Tom Brady and Colts quarterback Peyton Manning. Vick became the first player in NFL history to sign more than one $100 million contract in his career.

Pearl passes on coaching, accepts grocery job KNOXVILLE, TENN. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Former Tennessee basketball coach Bruce Pearl accepted a job as vice president of marketing with a Knoxville-based wholesale grocery company, bypassing the chance to coach the Texas Legends of the NBAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s developmental league. He will begin working at H.T. Hackney on Thursday. The company is led by Chairman and CEO Bill Sansom, a former University of Tennessee trustee. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really an answer to prayer,â&#x20AC;? Pearl told The Associated Press on Tuesday. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is where my family is. Pearl This is where I want to be. Everybody looks at me as a coach, but Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m a father and a husband, and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got to provide for my family.â&#x20AC;? Pearl was fired in March after six seasons at Tennessee in the wake of a two-year NCAA investigation that culminated Wednesday with a three-year show-cause penalty against the coach. The sanction makes it nearly impossible for another school to hire him during that time. Pearl majored in marketing and economics at Boston College. He said he would have pursued a career in marketing had he not gotten into coaching in 1982.

felt the sting, those who didn’t were equally affected. That includes junior Toben Opurum, a former running back who suited up but did not play in last year’s opener. “That loss, I kind of took it to heart more than anybody else because I didn’t get a chance to step on the field and play,” said Opurum, who revealed Tuesday that he considered transferring after being moved to defense. “They were back and forth on whether to red-shirt me.” Darius Willis, a transfer from Buffalo who sat out all of 2010 in accordance with NCAA transfer rules but was able to practice, remembers well the feeling the Jayhawks had heading into the North Dakota State game. He said the vibe is completely different this season. “You can tell there’s more focus,” he said. “Everybody is driving to be where they need to be and doing the right things at the right time. No one is letting distractions come into play.”

!’s Chad Ford ranked KU junior Thomas Robinson No. 10 in his list of the top 100 prospects for the 2012 NBA Draft. Kentucky’s Anthony Davis is No. 1, North Carolina’s Harrison Barnes No. 2, followed by UConn’s Andre Drummond, UNC’s James McAdoo, Baylor’s Perry Jones, Florida’s Brad Beal, Baylor’s Quincy Miller, Ohio State’s Jared Sullinger and Kentucky’s Michael Kidd-Gilchrist. KU senior Tyshawn Taylor is No. 54.

By all accounts, McNeese State has more talent, speed and big-game experience than North Dakota State brought to Lawrence a year ago. “I can’t speak for their defense,” said KU defensive coordinator Vic Shealy. “But their offense looks more like a Div. I, major conference athletic talent.” Combine the painful memories of last year’s devastation with the utmost respect for a quality opponent and it’s easy to see why the Jayhawks have put so much emphasis on this year’s opener. “Nobody wants a repeat of the failures we had last season,” Opurum said. “We want to go out there aggressive and with confidence. We gotta hit ’em first.” Added senior cornerback Isiah Barfield: “(Falling to NDSU) was a huge setback on our season, losing the first game of the year and we gotta come out more focused and ready to play so we can get the first ‘W’ right away.”

Seabury volleyball sweeps J-W Staff Reports

OLATHE — Courtney Hoag had 11 kills and nine digs to lead Seabury Academy’s volleyball team to an openingseason sweep on Tuesday against Kansas School for the Deaf. The Seahawks defeated KSD by scores of 25-14, 25-14, 25-13. Charlotte Burch contributed eight aces, while Alyson Oliver had 19 assists. Alexa Gaumer pitched in seven kills for the Seahawks (1-0). Seabury will travel on Thursday to the Jackson Heights Triangular.

to assure a strong Big 12 for the future.” So far, the only school to publicly express interest in moving to the Big 12 is SMU, now in Conference USA. Athletic director Steve Orsini said he has had informal talks with Big 12 officials for some time to inform them of the school’s improvements and growth. The Big 12 agreed to a 13-year television deal with Fox Sports in April worth more than $1 billion. There is a chance the contract could be voided if the Aggies leave the conference, which could lead to legal issues for Texas A&M and its new league. “The Big 12 remains a strong conference with a very effective media contract in place,” Deaton said in the statement Tuesday.

Royals stumble late on the road, lose 2-1 to Tigers By Noah Trister Associated Press Sports Writer

DETROIT — Ramon Santiago is one of the smallest players on the Detroit Tigers — a smooth fielder and fast runner, but nobody’s idea of a slugger. For the second time in less than three months, the 5-foot11 backup infielder gave the Tigers a victory with a big hit in extra innings. Santiago’s solo homer in the bottom of the 10th on Tuesday night lifted When: 12:05 Detroit to a p.m. today 2-1 victory Where: Detroit over Kansas City. Pitchers: On June F.Paulino (26) vs. Porcello 13, Santiago hit an RBI (12-8) triple in the 10th to give the Tigers a 2-1 victory over Tampa Bay in a game he entered as a defensive replacement. He came in as a pinchrunner in the eighth Tuesday but made his biggest contribution two innings later.


“I knew I hit it hard, but I was running as fast as I could because I wasn’t sure where it was going to end up,” Santiago said. “Once I saw it go out, I wanted to enjoy it, because you don’t get to do that very often.” Santiago’s homer off Aaron Crow (3-4) was only his fourth of the year. It enabled the first-place Tigers to stay five games ahead of the Chicago White Sox in the AL Central. Joaquin Benoit (4-3) pitched two innings for the Tigers, matching his longest outing of the season. Crow struck out Wilson Betemit with the bases loaded to end the ninth, but he got only one out in the 10th before allowing Santiago’s surprising homer over the right-field wall. “You like to see someone like Santi get a turn in front of the cameras. He’s the underdog on a team with guys like (Miguel) Cabrera and (Victor) Martinez,” Detroit manager Jim Leyland said. “He ran into a fastball and he hit it well. That wasn’t a paint scraper.” Detroit starter Doug Fister

Chiefs feeling good (despite preseason woes) as training camp wraps up By Dave Skretta Associated Press Sports Writer

KANSAS CITY, MO. — The Kansas City Chiefs were working on special teams Tuesday morning, specifically the field goal units, when Todd Haley’s voice cut through the air like a foghorn. Rookie linebacker Justin Houston was late getting on the field with the first team kick block unit, and Haley let him know it. Forget about the content of the message — the volume of his voice alone was enough to convey a sense of urgency as the Chiefs prepare for their final preseason game. “I felt like we’ve made improvements all along through training camp and

the preseason,” Haley said, “and I feel like we’re doing that again. And if we make improvements, then I’ll feel good.” Haley said the Chiefs have had perhaps their best week of training camp, even though it was a short one. After losing to St. Louis last Haley Friday, they had heavy practices Sunday and Monday and worked out again Tuesday. They’ll take today off except for a walk through, and then head to Green Bay to face the defending Super

Bowl champions on Thursday night. Along the way, Kansas City was forced to cut its roster to 80 players by Tuesday afternoon. After releasing seven Monday, the Chiefs reached their limit by putting offensive tackle Ryan O’Callaghan on injured reserve and waiving kicker Todd Carter. More decisions will have to be made soon. Haley and his staff will be able to evaluate the Packers game Friday before making final roster decisions. Teams must cut to 53 players by Saturday. Then it’s on to game week, with the Buffalo Bills coming to town for the season opener Sept. 11 at Arrowhead Stadium. “I really feel like we’ve

been able to stay on schedule as far as how we want to do things,” Haley said. “I’ve fought the urge to be reactionary and do things we hadn’t really planned on doing.” That’s taken some pretty solid self-control considering how poorly the Chiefs have performed in their first three preseason games. They were wiped out, 25-0, by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in their opener, were trounced 31-13 by the Baltimore Ravens a week later, then watched the Governor’s Cup head back across the state when the Rams held on for a 14-10 victory last week. The Chiefs have played their starters sparingly with quarterback Matt Cassel

throwing all of 27 passes — and completing just 12. Running backs Jamaal Charles and Thomas Jones have combined for 15 carries and 60 yards, and top wide receiver Dwayne Bowe has four catches for 54 yards. Cassel said he’s bought into Haley’s deliberate approach to the preseason, which was thrown in flux by the NFL lockout. But even he acknowledged it would be nice to throw a few more passes Thursday night before the games start to count. “We’ve had three preseason games and you’re trying different stuff and all that,” Cassel said, “and we haven’t exactly pounded the rock like we did last year, and we’re still at this time trying

to get used to some new players that we have and go forward from there. “We’ll see,” he said. “Again, it comes down to game plan and what the coaches put together.” Haley wouldn’t reveal exactly how much he plans to play his first-string units at Lambeau Field, but he did say “our core guys will have a good amount of playing time.” That’s a departure from most Week 4 preseason games, when teams try to protect their starters from injuries. Haley also said he feels comfortable with the players currently on the roster, despite several apparent holes that could be addressed as other teams make their cuts.



6B Wednesday, August 31, 2011


Game week: Top questions facing each Big 12 squad Iowa State Week 1: Saturday vs. Northern Iowa, 6 p.m. Biggest question: How much early success will quarterback Steele Jantz have in the Cyclones’ system? Jantz, a junior college transfer, recently won the starting quarterback job over Jerome Tiller, who was declared academically ineligible and won’t play in 2011. Jantz is coming off a season in which he accumulated 3,676 total yards and 37 total touchdowns at City College of San Francisco. Of course, the competition will be just a bit more fierce in the Big 12. Iowa State’s non-conference schedule won’t offer much down time for Jantz, either. After opening at home to Northern Iowa, ISU will play host to Iowa on Sept. 10 and travel to Connecticut on Sept. 16. Welcome to Div. I, Mr. Jantz.

Eric Sorrentino

Editor’s note: The following is an entry from Eric Sorrentino’s Conference Chatter blog, which follows features and trends in the Big 12, on This time of year — more specifically this week — holds a certain amount of special sports significance across the country. Perhaps you’ll feel an added jolt of enthusiasm this week as you go about your daily routine. College football is upon us. The seven-month drought is over, and thankfully, we’re pretty much done hearing about fall practices and anything pertaining to the offseason. Yes, we’ve officially hit game week. The Big 12 will take part in its first game Friday, when Baylor plays host to No. 14 TCU, one year after the Horned Frogs destroyed the Bears, 45-10, in Fort Worth, Texas. Eight conference teams will jump into action Saturday, while Texas A&M will open its season Sunday. In the meantime, here are my top questions facing each Big 12 team before the season starts.

No. 1 Oklahoma Week 1: Saturday vs. Tulsa, 7 p.m. Biggest question: How will the absence of Travis Lewis, chosen as preseason Big 12 defensive player of the year, affect the Sooners and their quest for a national championship? Lewis, who broke his toe on Aug. 8, is expected to miss eight weeks. If that timetable holds, eight weeks from the time of injury would be Oct. 3. The good news: OU faces archrival Texas on Oct. 10 in Dallas. The bad news: The Sooners have a front-heavy schedule, with games at No. 6 Florida State on Sept. 17, and a home tilt against No. 21 Missouri on Sept. 24. Can OU remain undefeated in the time Lewis misses? Oklahoma is a factory for producing above-average Big 12 players at virtually every position on the field, but this injury came at an inopportune time. The Sooners are still trying to cope with losing senior linebacker Austin Box, who died in May because of a toxic mix of pain pills. No. 8 Texas A&M Week 1: Sunday vs. SMU, 6:30 p.m. Biggest question: How many games would the Aggies win in the SEC this season? Texas A&M reportedly notified the Big 12 late Monday night its intentions of withdrawing from the conference. Tuesday, Texas A&M denied that it sent the withdrawal letter. This will be a long, dragged-out process that should still result in A&M bolting. In a similar manner to Nebraska (Big Ten) and

Texas Week 1: Saturday vs. Rice, 7 p.m. Biggest question: The Longhorns’ record should be better than their abominable 5-7 showing from last year. But how many more victories will that equal? UT has new offensive coordinators (Bryan Harsin, previously at Boise State, Associated Press, John Young/Journal-World File Photos and Major Applewhite will CLOCKWISE, STARTING AT TOP LEFT, OKLAHOMA LINEBACKER TRAVIS LEWIS, OKLAHOMA STATE WIDE RECEIVER JUSTIN take over for Greg Davis), BLACKMON, KANSAS UNIVERSITY QUARTERBACK JORDAN WEBB and Missouri quarterback James Franklin will lead their Big 12 and a new defensive cosquads into action this season.

No. 1 Oklahoma working toward own TV network By Jeff Latzke Associated Press Football Writer

NORMAN, OKLA. — While rival Texas has been rolling out its Longhorn Network, top-ranked Oklahoma has been working to expand its television capabilities, too. Reporters were given a tour Tuesday of the university’s SoonerVision HD production rooms that have been expanded through $5 million in improvements in recent years. With fiberoptic cables connecting the school’s athletic venues to side-by-side control rooms, Oklahoma plans to broadcast and webcast dozens more sporting events this year in high definition. “It allows us to do broad-

cast quality. That’s the thing I don’t think a lot of people realize is that five years ago our webcasts were one camera at a game, at a volleyball match, and we’re still doing some of that,” said Brandon Meier, the executive director of video production. “Now more of our webcasts are going to look like broadcasts that you’re going to see at home with all of the bells and whistles and the replays and the score bug. We’ve gone from the one-camera setup to the 32-person broadcast setup to make that happen.” The expansion is another

step toward the school’s ultimate goal of launching its own around-theclock network in a quickly expanding television marketplace for college sports. The Big Ten’s lucrative network is being joined by a series of Pac-12 channels and the Longhorn Network, created through a $300 million deal between Texas and ESPN. As compared to those endeavors, Oklahoma has a part-time network. It produces and broadcasts dozens of live basketball games and events from Olympic sports on television, and offers

other live sporting events through an online All-Access package that charges subscribers about $10 a month or $100 a year. Spokesman Kenny Mossman said eventually the university hopes to “dovetail” its online offerings into its own TV channel. Kansas State became the latest Big 12 school to launch a similar package Tuesday with the creation of its KStateHD.TV online channel. “I think every school is investigating an Internet distribution system,” Oklahoma State University President Burns Hargis said in a recent interview. “With the emergence and evolution of Internet television now, it probably behooves us all to

get very serious about an Internet network.” There’s still another big step from webcast of live events and on-demand content to the Longhorn Network’s offerings. “I think there’s a lot of programming that would have to be done to support a 24-hour channel, and it’s been nice for us to kind of grow in steps. So, this year we’ll focus on producing really quality TV broadcasts,” Meier said. “If next year whatever happens or years in the future, if there does happen to be a channel or a media partner, we have the ability to do the same thing — push them good content, whether it be in the studio shows or live games.”

Meier said Oklahoma’s facilities are up to date with advanced equipment. “If we were to someday launch a network like the Longhorn Network, there would still need to be a network hub,” Meier said. “This is really just for production of games and that sort of things. There is nothing that’s a master control for a TV station. While they aren’t bringing in $15 million per year like the Longhorn Network contract, the upgraded production facilities are a money maker for the Sooners. Just one example is that instead of paying an outside firm more than $100,000 to create a video for pregame football introductions, Oklahoma can now do it on its own.

Veritas ready to defend state football crown By Nick Nelson

Veritas Christian’s football team is coming off its most successful season in the school’s history, but you wouldn’t know in talking to coach Doug Bennett. Bennett, who led the Eagles to an undefeated season and the Kansas Christian Athletic Association state championship last year, enters this season with the same mind-set as his previous 10 seasons as coach. “It’s a great memory, but they don’t give us any points for last season,” Bennett said. After losing 11 of 16 starters, including first-team all-state running back Nate Scott and first-team all-state receivers Ethan Kay and Ethan Scott, Bennett said Veritas would need to rely less on big plays and more on driving the ball down the field. “Last year we had such a potent offense and such speed that ... we probably averaged three or four plays a drive and we were in the end zone just because we had some big playmakers,” Bennett said. That’s not to say the Eagles don’t have a few big playmakers returning — emphasis on “big.” Bennett said his team’s strengths would be size and power, both on the front line and in the backfield. Right guard Bryce Boland, a junior, is 6-foot-3, 241 pounds, and received all-state honorable mention for his work on the defensive line last year. Newcomer Chris Bolinger is

6-2, 229 at left guard. They intend to protect two other big-time guys — seniors Nick Bennett, a second-team all-state quarterback and coach Bennett’s son, running back Preston Randall, who collected honorable mention all-state linebacker accolades last year. Both are around 6-1, 190. “I think there is a lot of excitement for this senior class,” Bennett said. “They’ve proven that they can have success with last year’s great class. I don’t think they necessarily feel pressure as much as they are just excited to go out and prove themselves and what they’re capable of doing.” While Bennett is approaching Friday’s opening matchup against non-conference foe Steelville (Mo.) the same as any other during his tenure, there is at least one difference — it will be the last season opener in which he will coach his son.

“I’m trying to savor every moment. I was going into this week realizing there was just nine weeks plus the postseason left to be that close to him on the football field,” Bennett said. When asked if another championship was too much to ask for after losing so much talent, Bennett said that was the goal, but there’s plenty of work left. “The schedule is a little tougher this year ... our non-league opponents. That should be a lot of fun for these guys to find out how good we might be able to be, but try not to put too much focus on winning another state championship, although it’s definitely on our mind,” Bennett said. “I think we have a lot of things we have to get better at to even have a chance to repeat as state champion.” Veritas will travel to Steelville, Mo., to take on the Cardinals at 7 p.m. Friday.

Fighting cooking myths with cold, hard facts

September is National Food Safety Education Month and we’re joining with the nonprofit Partnership for Food Safety Education to share “Food Safety Mythbusters.” Here are some myths with the facts to help you know how to help reduce your risk of foodborne illness: Myth: Freezing foods kills harmful bacteria that can cause foodborne illness. Fact: Bacteria can survive freezing temperatures. Freezing is not a method for making foods safe to eat. When food is thawed, bacteria can still be present and may begin to multiply. Cooking food to the proper internal temperature is the best way to kill harmful bacteria. Use a thermometer to measure the temperature of cooked foods. Myth: I don’t need to wash my produce if I am going to peel it. Fact: You should wash fresh fruits and vegetables, including those with skins and rinds that are not eaten, under running tap water just before eating, cutting or cooking. Harmful bacteria could be on the outside of the produce. If you peel or cut it without first washing it, the bacteria could be transferred to the part you eat. Wash delicate produce such as grapes or lettuce under cool running water. Blot dry with a clean cloth towel or paper towel. Rub firmskin fruits and vegetables under running tap water or scrub with a clean produce brush. Never use detergent or bleach to wash fresh fruits or vegetables. Packaged fruits and vegetables labeled “ready-to-eat” or “washed” do not need to be re-washed. Myth: Plastic or glass cutting boards don’t hold harmful bacteria on their surfaces like wooden cutting boards do. Fact: Any type of cutting board can hold harmful bacteria on its surface. Regardless of the type of cutting board you use, it should be washed and sanitized after each use. Solid plastic, tempered glass, sealed granite, and hardwood cutting boards are dishwasher safe. However, wood laminates don’t hold up well in the dishwasher. Once cutting boards of any type become excessively worn or develop hard-to-clean grooves, they should be discarded. Myth: Locally-grown, organic foods will never give me foodborne illness. Fact: Any food, whether organic or conventional, could become unsafe with illnesscausing foodborne bacteria at any point during the chain from the farm to the table. Myth: Leftovers are safe to eat until they smell bad. Fact: Most people would not choose to eat spoiled, smelly food. However, if they did, they would not necessarily get sick. This is because there are different types of bacteria, some of which cause illness in people and others that don’t. The types of bacteria that do cause illness do not affect the taste, smell or appearance of food. For this reason it is important to freeze or toss refrigerated leftovers within 3-4 days. If you are unsure of how long your leftovers have been sitting in the refrigerator, don’t take the risk — when in doubt, throw it out. Myth: Lemon juice and salt will clean and sanitize a cutting board. Fact: Sanitizing is the process of reducing the number of microorganisms that are on a properly cleaned surface to a safe level to reduce risk of foodborne illness. Lemon juice and salt will not do this. To clean your cutting board, first wash it with hot water and soap. Then follow the recommendations above for sanitizing and drying. It is important to clean and disinfect — just because a surface looks clean, doesn’t mean it is free of diseasecausing bacteria. lander and rinsing it with water will remove bacteria like Salmonella. Fact: Rinsing chicken in a colander will not remove bacteria. In fact, it can spread raw juices around your sink, onto your countertops, and onto

ready-to-eat foods. Bacteria in raw meat and poultry can only be killed when cooked to a safe minimum internal temperature, which for poultry is 165 degrees F, as measured by a food thermometer. Save yourself the messiness of rinsing raw poultry. It is not a safety step and can cause cross-contamination. Myth: You should not put hot food in the refrigerator. Fact: Hot foods can be placed directly in the refrigerator. A large pot of food like soup or stew should be divided into small portions and put in shallow containers for quicker cooling in the refrigerator. If you leave food out to cool and forget about it, then toss it! Food is not safe to eat after sitting out at room temperature for more than two hours. Bacteria grow rapidly in the “danger zone” between 40 degrees and 135 degrees. Always follow the “twohour rule” — eat perishable foods or refrigerate them within two hours at a refrigerator

temperature of 40 degrees or below. And, if perishable food is left out in a room or outdoors where the temperature is 90 degrees or higher, food should be refrigerated or eaten within just one hour — or discarded after one hour has passed. — Susan Krumm is an Extension agent in family and consumer sciences with K-State Research and Extension-Douglas County, 2110 Harper St. She can be reached at 843-7058.




load it up on Friday, except for some of the perishable items,” says Hawley, who uses his truck as his official tailgate vehicle. “I’ll load those up on Saturday morning and go out.” As for the food, Flory says that if barbecue competitions have taught him anything, it’s to do the work early so you’re not scrambling. “I think preparation on tailgating is key. You can do it two or three days ahead of time,” Flory says. “Hell, the longer something marinates, the better it’s going to taste. I’ve never tasted something and gone, ‘Damn, I marinated it too long.’” Don’t do it all yourself. Even if you’re a control freak, you’re going to need someone’s help with something. Whether that’s setting up, food prep, food purchasing, or offsetting the cost. Make sure everyone who is coming has a role, a side dish, a few dollars to spare, so that it doesn’t become overwhelming. Hawley says he usually brings enough meat, alcohol and other basics that tailgaters are covered if someone forgets one thing or another, but he says his group still sets up a loose system of give and take with guests bringing food to share and beer to go in a communal cooler. What isn’t taken from the beer cooler just gets brought back the next week. Langford says the group also started a tip jar last year to make it easier on everyone involved. “A lot of times it seemed like Theron was the one getting most of the food products, and so we would just throw money in a jar then,” Langford says.

Perfect execution Pre-game eating is just


able bread or baked good. You can pick from a myriad of fresh cheeses, a seafood counter to rival Pike’s and a produce section that brings me to tears. Once, I think I counted more than 20 different varieties of apple alone. And there are tasting stations everywhere. Central Market also boasts a deli of inventive food made to order. There is a giant counter of prepared foods, or “home meal replacements,” as I like to call them. You can buy fresh ingredients already chopped and measured in “kits” so you can just go home and throw them in the pot for soup. Gelato, homemade pizza, several aisles of bulk grains, candy and — get this — salts are among the offerings. Oh, and there’s a liquor store in there, with experts standing by to help you select the right wine or beer for the meal you’re preparing to prepare. It’s dizzying. And I want each thing more than I wanted the last thing we saw. I’m sure it has nothing to do with their fabulous signage. On this particular trip, I’d been lollygagging through the produce, popping bites of pineapple and fresh orange into Johnny’s mouth, and then I rounded the corner to the fish counter. The Market happened to be celebrating its annual Hatch Chili Festival, so behind me was a woman handing out samples of pork with hatch chili stuffing and hatch chili crab cakes. Yes, please. Oh, and some of that dip, too. Meanwhile, Amy was standing at the fish counter, wide-eyed over the bargain price of a whole red snapper. She pointed at the prices. “Wha?” “Well,” I said, “It won’t be filleted or cleaned or anything. You just get that giant fish.” I figured we’d have to take it home and have our brother clean it, but just then this man, I’ll call him a fish monger, because I can, said “No, no. I’ll do it for you.” “Wha??” So Amy selected a fish, and this nice man deboned it (no extra charge), and cut it just right so that we could fill it full of herbs and whatnot, and roast that sucker for dinner. We were planning on beef fajitas, and we figured it wouldn’t be bad to add a little fish to the mix. Red snapper fajita? Yes, please.

like a running game clock. If time runs out and you haven’t scored your entree, you’re in trouble. Our experts break down how to attack each sort of game worth tailgating. The morning game: Games with 11 a.m. kickoffs can be tricky for tailgating. It’s easy to do breakfast treats like sausage/egg/cheese/veggie biscuit sandwiches, breakfast burritos and griddle-friendly pancakes, french toast and eggs. But the trick is making sure that the whole crew is actually getting up that early and will be ready to eat. Hawley suggests being ready for more than just breakfast, so you don’t have hungry nonbreakfast eaters showing up at halftime or after the game looking for food that’s not there. “We do a lot of breakfasttype stuff and we’ll usually get there and set up, and do a breakfast before the game and then come out at halftime and do a quick lunch with hot dogs or hamburgers or something quick that we can cook,” Hawley says. “And then sometimes we’ll hang out and cook after the game, too.” The early afternoon game: These are a staple for football lovers. And they also make it a bit easier to plan for than games before noon. Flory suggests that if you don’t have a ton of time to smoke meat, just take anything and wrap it in bacon. Seriously. He says the most popular tailgate bites he makes are bacon-wrapped cheesy peppers and baconwrapped shrimp. “Cut a jalapeño in half, put some cheese in it, wrap bacon around it — it doesn’t take long,” Flory says. “Another great one is, and this is always a crowd pleaser, is baconwrapped shrimp. You want to talk about easy. Go to the store, buy yourself already peeled and deveined shrimp. Wrap a

The fish dude had explained to us not to lop off the head and throw it away, since the best meat of all is in the cheeks.

piece of bacon around it and everybody’s like, ‘Oh my God, what did you do?’” The night game: This game time gives the tailgater the most menu options, but it can also be a bit stressful if you have other weekend duties like yard-work or errands before game time. If you don’t? This would be the time to do something big like roast a pig on a spit. “It seems like the first couple of nonconference games are usually those late games, we’ll try to do something bigger, something a little more timeconsuming,” says Hawley, who is planning on doing an 80-pound pig this year. “We’ll smoke meat — something that can sit there the whole day.” The weeknight game: Depending on the work schedules of those tailgating, these can either be about as normal as any weekend game or they can be much more condensed. Hawley says that if he’s off from his job as a firefighter the day of a weeknight game, he’ll just prepare everything as normal. If he’s not, the group will just do something simple and quick like hotdogs on the grill. If you’re unsure what to make or are even just overwhelmed by the whole idea of tailgating, just go with your gut and keep it simple, says Hawley. “Start small. Get out there, get your tent and your chairs, just get set up, maybe don’t try to do too much,” Hawley says. “For a while I think we were doing maybe too much, and I wouldn’t say that we’ve scaled back, but some things aren’t quite as complicated as before. We were doing frozen drinks and things like that out there and sometimes that’s just a lot of work to do all that.” — Staff writer Sarah Henning can be reached at 832-7187.

Fajita Fish Rub 4 tablespoons chili powder 2 tablespoons cumin 2 teaspoons salt 1 teaspoons cracked black pepper a pinch of cayenne pepper Then, I squeeze some lime juice over the whole thing, and popped him in a 325 degree oven for about an hour. The fish dude had explained to us not to lop off the head and throw it away, since the best meat of all is in the cheeks, so when the fish came out of the oven, we just sort of attacked him and pulled the fish like you would pork, head and all. You’re not going to get a nice giant steak off of a fish cleaned this way. But since we were wrapping it in a fajita tortilla, that was just fine. I tried to pay my nephew $10 bucks to eat the eye, but alas, he’s smarter than all that nonsense. — Read more Flying Fork at

When I grew up, my grandma cooked sweet corn in a pot of boiling water on the stove. I always thought it was delicious, but I’m thankful that when it comes to cooking sweet corn now, there are other flavorful techniques.

Pork and Pineapple Kabobs 1/2 cup barbecue sauce 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh rosemary 1 pound boneless pork chops, cut into 1-inch pieces 1 cup fresh pineapple chunks (1 inch) 1 cup green pepper squares (1 inch) 1/2 cup red onion chunks (1 inch) Mix first 3 ingredients. Reserve 1/4 cup sauce for later use. Pour remaining sauce over chops in shallow dish. Turn chops over to coat both sides of each. Refrigerate 15 min. to marinate. Heat barbecue to medium-high heat. Remove meat from marinade. Discard marinade. Thread meat onto 8 skewers alternately with pineapple, peppers and onions. Grill 12 to 14 min. or until meat is done, turning occasionally and brushing with reserved sauce. — Recipe from www.

Sliders 1 1/2 to 2 pounds ground round Salt and pepper to taste 8 small buns Extra virgin olive oil 4 leaves romaine or green leaf lettuce 1 large tomato, sliced 1/4 small red onion, thinly sliced Preheat the grill. Divide and gently shape the meat into 8 small patties. Season liberally with salt and pepper. Grill meat to desired doneness, about 4 minutes

Out of the husk: Pull away all husks and de-silk each ear as directed above with a damp cloth. Grill for 15-20 minutes or until kernels are nicely charred. Better Buttering: My family discovered that placing a big pat of butter on a slice of bread is the way to go. Simply run the ear of corn up and down the bread works like a charm because the bread holds the butter in place and by the time you’ve buttered all your ears of corn, that pat of butter is softened and ready to spread. For added fun this summer, try a flavored butter. Below is one of my all-time favorites. Enjoy!

Microwave This is my favorite fast option, if we need just a few ears of corn for a quick meal. A single ear in the microwave requires a zap on full power for 4 minutes. For each additional ear, add 1 minute of cooking time. The key here is not to overload the microwave by cooking more than three to four ears at a time. Be sure to turn the ears over half-way through Chef Alli’s Lime the cooking time. It’s important to micro- and Curry Butter wave your corn in the husk. 1/2 teaspoon chicken base This ensures those kerpaste nels will be moist and ten1/2 cup unsalted butter der.

Lay the ears of corn, in the husks, across a baking sheet. Go ahead and make a couple layers, it works fine. Just remember to rotate the ears from top to bottom, turning each one over as well, halfway through the cooking time. Place the loaded baking sheet into an oven, preheated 350 degrees for 35-40 minutes. On the grill This way is the most fun, and definitely the most flavorful because of the delicious, smoky, charring. No matter which way you grill the corn (in the husk or with it removed) preheat your grill to medium-high heat. In the husk: Peel the husks back, but leave intact. De-silk each ear by using a clean, moist cloth, gently rubbing the length of each ear. Spread butter over each ear, then pull the husks back up and over. Grill the corn, uncovered, for 25-30 minutes, turning every once in awhile.

Enjoy sweet corn in a variety of ways By Alli Winter

I managed to get out of there this time without any baggies of salt infused with chilies, or any little pots of jam or even a jar of Texas salsa. I was too busy staring at the fish package, and shooting photos to bother with actually making a purchase. You see, that’s the thing about Central Market. Yes, you can make fabulous things at home with the wares you purchase, but 90 percent of the draw is the experience of being there. It’s electrifying, at least, if you are a dork like me and you’d rather pick out a snapper than a new dress. We came home and dressed that fish. It’s easy, as it turns out. The fish monger had pulled out the skeleton, which my sister said looked just like in the cartoons, and he’d made deep cuts horizontally along both sides. On the advice of the fish monger, we laid the fish out on a cookie sheet with a lip (the only thing big enough to hold him), and stuffed all those slashes with garlic cloves, shallots and slices of limes. Then I made a rub, and generously covered the beast first with olive oil, then the spice rub. It was a 6 pound fish, so I needed quite a bit of volume.

TAILGATING By Sarah Henning


The basics Stake out your spot and know your timeline. The first rule of tailgating: Find your spot. If you’re doing the KU games, know that if you don’t have a parking pass, you’ll have to get there extra early to find a worthy patch of grass or blacktop near Memorial Stadium. Tim Flory, a pro barbecue competitor with Lawrence’s Crimson and Blue BBQ team, has tailgated at KU games, Chiefs and Royals games, and even at a NASCAR race. He says there’s no point in tailgating if you get there close to game time, can’t get a spot or feel stressed and rushed because you pulled in late. “Don’t get there 45 minutes before the game and try to get your grill going,” Flory says. “Make sure you give yourself plenty of time to have fun and enjoy the atmosphere and people walking by saying, ‘Hey, what are you cooking?’” Prep ahead of time. This goes for both food and supplies. Before going to bed on Friday night, Hawley does his rounds to make sure his tailgating supplies — tent, chairs, grill, gear — are ready to go. “I usually have everything in my garage and just kind of

y sister, Amy, and I thought that I should come and visit her in Dallas before my baby turned two, since kids under 2 can fly free. Plus, she dangled a “my husband has some points to burn on American” carrot, and I decided, possibly against my better judgement, to brave the airport alone with my toddler. It would be worth it, of course, for many reasons. Actually, I could count about 5 million reasons, and they’re all lining the shelves of my place of worship: Central Market. (And seeing family and loved ones, that would be nice too.) When I visit my sister, she asks what I want to do, but always adds “... besides go to Cen- I’d say that tral Market, Central Market that is.” Be- is a grocery cause, really, that is all store, but that I want to do. would be the I go to her grossest unhouse to do derstatement four things: chat and of my life. catch up Yes, you can with her and buy groceries her family; loll about; there, but they go to Cen- aren’t your tral Market; run-of-the-mill eat.

You see, Central Market is (and as much as I abhor this phrase, I’m going to use it in this one instance) a foodie’s paradise. Central Market has eight locations, all in Texas (dang it). The stores are huge. Each one is over 75,000 square feet. That, my friends, is big. I’d say that Central Market is a grocery store, but that would be the grossest understatement of my life. Yes, you can buy groceries there, but they aren’t your run-of-the-mill groceries. The items on their shelves are specialties. I’m pretty sure you cannot purchase a Coke at Central Market.

heron Hawley and Justin Langford go whole-hog when they tailgate at Kansas University football games. The Lawrence buddies and their friends have the requisite tent and grill, plus a fire pit, propane heaters for those chilly games, a giant blow-up Jayhawk, buckets of beer and more than enough food. They do night games, day games, morning games, weekday games, the annual spring game. Heck, they even spent 12 hours before a night game last year roasting a pig — head and all — on a spit. “Pretty awesome,” Langford says of the 110-pound pig. “But kind of disturbing at the same time. And we’re planning on doing it again this year.” These people are serious. It’s helpful to learn from them and other masters of tailgating, whether you plan to be at one pro or college game this year or for every single kickoff. There’s most certainly an art to tailgating. It’s party planning for the sports enthusiast, to be exact. So here are some tips and tricks for a winning tailgate, even if your team loses the game.

Dear Annie: I’m recovering from cancer. To thank my husband for being so helpful, caring and patient during my treatment, I want to give him a nice party for his 30th birthday. He liked the idea and put together a guest list. I mentioned this to my inlaws, and they offered to help. The next thing I know, they’ve insisted on paying for the entire party and having it at their house. They also wanted me to invite some of their friends. I told them my husband is not close to these people and I did not intend to invite them. They became upset, saying I was putting them in an awkward situation and they would never be able to explain why these friends weren’t included in this big party. That annoyed me, and I decided to change our plans. I told my in-laws we would now have a much smaller party at my house. It seemed to me that they were making this about them and not about my husband. Now there is tension between us. What should I do? — Stuck in the Middle Dear Stuck: Your in-laws overstepped by co-opting your party, and it was perfectly reasonable for you to back out and start over. But it would be a good idea to mend fences. Please tell your in-laws that you greatly ap-
