REPUBLICAN PRESIDENTIAL NOMINEE MITT ROMNEY acknowledges delegates before speaking Thursday at the Republican National Convention in Tampa, Fla. Romney stressed economic themes and shared stories showing his personal side in his speech Thursday.
Romney makes case for jobs, jobs, jobs create 12 million of them in perilous economic times. “Now is the time to restore the promise of America,” Romney declared to a nation struggling with 8.3 percent unemployment and the slowest economic recovery in decades.

By David Espo and Robert Furlow Associated Press
TAMPA, FLA. — Mitt Romney launched his fall campaign for the White House on Thursday night with a rousing, remarkably personal speech to the Republican National convention and a prime-time TV audience, proclaiming that America needs “jobs, lots of jobs” and promising to
with dozens of delegates. The hall erupted in cheers when he reached the stage and waved to his shouting, chanting supporters before beginning to speak. “I accept your nomination for president,” he said, to a roar of approval. Then he pivoted into personal details of family life, recounting his youth as a Mormon, the son of parents devoted to one another, then a married man with
five rambunctious sons. He choked up at least twice, including when he recalled how he and wife Ann would awake to find “a pile of kids asleep in our room.” He was unstinting in his criticism of President Barack Obama, his Democratic quarry in a close and uncertain race for the White House, and drew Please see ROMNEY, page 6A
Blue moon to grace tonight’s sky, sort of By Sara Shepherd firstname.lastname@example.org
When it comes to blue moons, one thing is certain: No matter which definition you’re using, they don’t happen very often. Now, about that definition. If you’re content with the increasingly accepted modern definition, there’s a blue moon tonight. It’s the second full moon in a month. It isn’t blue.
And it looks and acts just like any other full moon. It just happens to fall on a certain calendar day. The last such blue moon was New Year’s Eve 2009, and the next will be July 2015, according to Sky and Telescope magazine.
But count Sky and Telescope among entities not content with the aforementioned definition. “ I t ’ s wrong!” cries an article on the magazine’s website. “At least if you’re a stickler about these things.”
The colorful term is actually a “calendrical goof” that worked its way into the magazine back in 1946, then ballooned, senior contributing editor Kelly Beatty writes. A contributor made an incorrect assumption about the Maine Farmers’ Almanac definition, which used “Blue Moon” to describe the third full moon in a season containing four. By that definition, there’s Please see MOON, page 2A
In the hopes of freeing up more work time for Kansas University’s leader, KU has hired a part-time driver for Chancellor Bernadette Gray-Little to take her to and from some out-of-town appointments. The university hired Robin Moore, a retired Douglas County Sheriff’s deputy with 32 years of law enforcement experience, to serve as her driver, said Mary Burg, executive assistant to the chancellor. He will make $20 per hour start Sept. 10, and will Gray-Little serve on an as-needed basis. Burg said the university said the times the chancellor would need a driver could vary widely, but the university was preliminarily estimating that he would work 15 hours per week. “We’re trying this out. We’ve never done this before, so we don’t know how many hours this will end up being,” she said. Please see DRIVER, page 2A
Census: Number of uninsured Kansans rising WICHITA (AP) — The percentage of Kansans under the age of 65 who are living without health insurance increased in 2010, and some health care providers expect that percentage to rise yet more unless the economy improves. The U.S. Census Bureau reported Wednesday that 15.8 percent of Kansas residents under age 65 — 380,000 people — did not have health insurance in 2010, compared with 14.6 percent in 2009. The census also reported for the first time on health HEALTH insurance coverage for those between 50 and 64, a group more likely to use health insurance than younger age groups. In 2010, about 60,800 people ages 50 to 64, or 11.4 percent of that group, did not have health insurance. The findings didn’t surprise Susette Schwartz, CEO of Hunter Health Clinic in Please see UNINSURED, page 2A

Wichita, which serves uninsured and underinsured people along with those with insurance. “It’s just horrendous,” Schwartz said. “Our number of patients has gone up, and keeps going up, and we just can’t keep doing this.” The report found that more than 17 percent of Sedgwick County residents under 65 — nearly 75,000 — did not have health insurance in 2010. That’s 10,000 more uninsured people than the previous year and nearly 30,000 more than in 2005, according to the report. “I think we all know, with the economic downturn, that a lot of folks that did have employment are now unemployed or underemployed,” said Dave Sanford, CEO of GraceMed, another health safety net clinic. “We saw our demand increase several years ago, and it really hasn’t stopped. One of the challenges we have is continuing to keep up with the demand for care.” Schwartz said the Hunter Health Clinic has seen more than 41,000 people at its five sites this year, with about 70 percent uninsured.

no blue moon tonight. The last one was in November 2010, and the next one will be August 2013. But even the almanac’s definition is questionable. “What’s interesting is that we use it as if it was longstanding folklore, and it’s really not,” said Barbara Anthony-Twarog, Kansas University professor of physics and astronomy. “Only in the last half-century or so have people decided to give that the title of a blue moon.” Once upon a time, once in a blue moon simply referred to something that happened extremely rarely. We’ve got a hunch that usage came from a phenomenon that actually
Locally There were 16,404 Douglas County residents under age 65 who did not have health insurance in 2010, or 17.7 percent of that population, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. That compares with 14,668 in 2009, or 14.3 percent. The census also reported for the first time on health insurance coverage for those between ages 50 and 64, a group more likely to use health insurance. In Douglas County, 1,888 people in that age group, or 11.2 percent, did not have health insurance. care law takes effect — particularly expanding Medicaid for low-income Americans — about 20,000 of Hunter Health Clinic’s patients would have insurance, Schwartz said. Those patients would get more regular care that could keep them out of more costly emergency rooms. “When we have this many people uninsured, we’re not saving money, we’re spending it,” Schwartz said. “If they’re not getting the prevention they need, they’re going to be in the hospitals, and that is so much more expensive.”
made the moon appear blue: volcanic eruptions violent enough to shoot plumes of ash to the top of Earth’s atmosphere. One such instance was the 1883 eruption of the Indonesian volcano Krakatoa, according to NASA Science News. The moon, full crescent or otherwise, appeared blue for years. Less forceful eruptions, such as Mount St. Helens in 1980, spawned reports of blue moons, too. If thinking about astronomy happens once in a blue moon for you, folks who study it for a living will take multiple definitions in stride. “I think anything that encourages people to actually pay attention to the sky is probably a plus,” Anthony-Twarog said. — Features reporter Sara Shepherd can be reached at 832-7187.

Eudora police chief resigns By Shaun Hittle email@example.com
Eudora Police Chief Grady Walker resigned Thursday, said John Harrenstein, Eudora city administrator. Walker’s resignation is effective Sept. 7, though Harrenstein said Walker has been out of the office on medical leave. Eudora Police Sgt. Chris Casagrande has been named acting police chief until an interim chief is named,
Harrenstein said. “We look to begin the search process very soon,” Harrenstein said. Because it was a personnel matter, Harrenstein said he could not comment further on Walker’s resignation. Attempts to reach Walker on Thursday were unsuccessful. Walker was named police chief in April 2010,
after 32 years in law enforcement. Walker worked for the Douglas County Sheriff’s office and jail right out of high school, and after 10 years joined Douglas County Youth Services, where he served as assistant director for 12 years. In 2007, Walker returned to the streets, working full time for the Eudora Police Department. — Reporter Shaun Hittle can be reached at 832-7173.
Music site hopes to rock industry Town Talk
Editor’s note: These are excerpts from Chad Lawhorn’s enormously popular Town Talk column that appears on LJWorld. com daily, Monday through Friday. The print edition of Town Talk appears frequently.
If you are like me and have had a broken radio in your F-150 for about the last two years, you may be a little behind on the music scene. But even I know you have to be a chump to actually pay for music these days. There’s YouTube, where you can find almost any song on the planet, although it does come with occasional surprises. (Wait a second, that’s not Garth Brooks. That’s my Uncle Larry in a cowboy hat.) A more ethical way to get your music for free is through streaming music sites like Pandora and Spotify. While those sites have big fan bases, they aren’t making big money. That is kind of the story of the entire music industry these days. Several reports estimate the music industry has shrunk from about a $14 billion-a-year industry a few years ago to about a $6 billion-ayear industry today. Enter a Lawrence startup company that hopes to change the trend. Back in March, we reported on Audio Anywhere and its founder, Kyle Johnson. The company was developing a new streaming music site that uses a technology that it says will make online advertising much more relevant to consumers. In other words, the company thinks it has figured out a way that online advertising can actually support a free music site. Well, the great experiment has begun. Audio Anywhere, which is based out of downtown in a second-floor office space, has launched its beta version of the streaming music site, audioanywhere.com. If you are an independent band, there are all types of freebies for you. The site is looking for independent bands to sign up and make their music available on the site. Eventually, those bands will get paid based on how often

The driver will be primarily for trips to and from Kansas City, where the chancellor spends at least one day each week at KU Medical Center. This week, however, Burg said Gray-Little has spent more time in Kansas City interviewing executive vice chancellor candidates for KUMC. The chancellor will still drive herself to and from all appointments in Lawrence. Not all trips to Kansas City will require a driver, and he will be used primarily when the chancellor has more than one appointment in a day, said Jack Martin, a KU spokesman. Regent Ed McKechnie, of Arcadia, said regents have been working with university CEOs on timemanagement strategies that can help them be more productive. With KUMC and KU’s

talk with are optimistic. Sales were up 40 percent in July. It will be interesting to see if home-building activity starts to pick up at that type of pace. There are still quite a few new homes on the market, so home building may lag home sales for a bit. It used to be that 300 to 400 new single-family and duplex permits a year constituted a good year in Lawrence. Forget about those numbers. They’re as dead as the F-150’s radio. But if builders could hit the 125 mark in new single-family homes, that would be a positive sign.
If dog houses interest you more than people houses, there’s a relatively new business right up your alley. Lucky Dog Outfitters has opened in the former George’s Hobby House space at 1411 W. 23rd St. Co-owner Jennifer Ybarra describes the place as a “specialty dog boutique.” So, what special things does a dog need these days? Well, there’s specialty food, specialty training leashes, specialty beds, handmade collars, and — get this — there are little charms that go on the collars. “People like to spoil their pets here, but we also have a lot of practical items that people have been coming in for,” she said. It helps that the store is right next to another dogoriented business, Wagmore Canine Enrichment, which is a training school for dogs. Wagmore previously was located near 25th and Iowa but made the move to 1411 W. 23rd St. awhile back. The result is the area has become a bit of a canine center. It also has become the place to go if you want one other type of specialty dog product: a dog water bottle. I’m told it looks like a human water bottle, but it has a special ball-bearing nozzle that allows the dog to easily drink from it, and then has another nozzle that allows you to drink from it. My dog had better be charmed if I’m doing that.
their songs are listened to. My understanding is that’s how the big streaming music sites work now, but Johnson is betting that his new advertising technology is going to make his site so much more profitable that he’ll be able to pay the bands about five times what they would make on Pandora or Spotify. Johnson, a KU engineering graduate, earlier this year was named the “Innovator of the Year” by the Pipeline entrepreneurship program, which honors the top inventors of middle America. Johnson’s board also includes a couple of former vice presidents from the major record labels — Sony and Universal, I believe — along with some other industry types. In addition, the company has been getting assistance from the KU Bioscience and Technology Business Center.
Local builders are starting to pick up their hammers and saws with a little more frequency, according to new numbers out of City Hall. Through June, Lawrence builders had pulled permits for 67 single-family and duplex homes in the city. That’s up from 63 during the first half of 2011. (By the way, I recognize we are a bit past June. The city has installed new software for its building permits, and I believe it took a bit longer to get the monthly report out this first time, but I’m confident we’ll get caught up.) The numbers showed home-building activity in June was the best it had been since at least 2008. The city issued permits for 16 new homes in June, up from nine in June 2011. — City reporter Chad Lawhorn can be As we have reported, home sales in Lawrence reached at 832-6362. Look for his entire Town Talk blog on LJWorld.com daily, have picked up this sumMonday through Friday. mer, and the Realtors I Edwards Campus in the Kansas City area, he said, the regents suggested Gray-Little hire a driver so she could work while in the car. “We’re not paying (the chancellor) to circle the block 20 times looking for a parking spot,” he said. He said regents do encourage Kansas State President Kirk Schulz and Fort Hays State President Ed Hammond to make use of university aircraft to cut down on travel time, though neither has a driver. KU’s chancellor has been working long hours since taking the job in 2009, he said. “I think the chancellor inherited more opportunities for improvement than Kirk Schulz inherited,” McKechnie said. Officials at KU’s regional peers in the Association of American Universities — the University of Iowa, the University of Missouri and Iowa State University — all said that they do not employ drivers for their university leaders. But Martin said Gray-
Little had heard from peers at the University of Texas-Austin and the University of Virginia who did use drivers. A UT spokesman said an employee of the president’s office had job duties that included, but were not limited to, driving the president to some meetings and events. Burg said the university hired Moore without posting the job, something that the university’s human resources department allows, she said. She said the university was looking for a person with a certain maturity level, someone that the university felt comfortable overhearing confidential conversations and someone with law enforcement experience. For some trips to the airport in Kansas City, KU had been hiring a car service for the chancellor at $100 per hour. “At least for the airport travel, that’s going to save some money,” Burg said. — Higher education reporter Andy Hyland can be reached at 832-6388.

Jenkins’ remark about unemployment rankles By Scott Rothschild firstname.lastname@example.org
TOPEKA — U.S. Rep. Lynn Jenkins, R-Kan., said some people “are happy” to stay unemployed to collect benefits rather than work. Jenkins’ Democratic opponent, Tobias Schlingensiepen, criticized her remark. Jenkins’ statement about the unemployed came during a meeting on Wednesday in Columbus, which is in Cherokee County in southeast Kansas. According to The Joplin Globe, Lori Johnson, chairwoman of the Cherokee County Republican Party, said some residents remain on unemployment rather than taking a low-paying job, then they claim a deduction on their taxes. The Globe reported that Jenkins responded by saying, “Right now we

Tree pest appears in Kansas Staff Report
The U.S. Department of Agriculture reports that the emerald ash borer is now in Kansas with a case confirmed Wednesday in Wyandotte County. In a news release, state officials said the discovery of the destructive pest was made by Kansas Department of Agriculture and USDA staff during a survey being conducted as a result of the July 2012 confirmation of emerald ash borer Please see BORER, page 4A
What is emerald ash borer? All ash trees are susceptible to infestation by the emerald ash borer. Trees become infested when adult beetles lay eggs on the bark. The eggs hatch into larvae that bore into the tree. They tunnel between the bark and wood and disrupt water and nutrient movement, eventually killing the tree. Emerald ash borer appears to prefer trees under stress
but is capable of killing perfectly healthy trees. Adult emerald ash borers are about onehalf inch long and they emerge in late spring. Trees infested with emerald ash borer will have canopy dieback, water sprouts, bark splitting, serpentine-like galleries and D-shaped exit holes.

Cherokee County, which borders both Schlingensiepen M i s s o u r i and Oklahoma, had an 8.6 percent jobless rate in July compared with 6.7 percent statewide. Cherokee County also has a higher rate of people living below the poverty line: 17.5 percent compared with 12.4 percent statewide, according to U.S. Census Bureau data. Bill Roe, who is campaign manager for Jenkins, said that Jenkins recently met with a small businessman who said that when he tried to make a hire, the applicant said he couldn’t start for a few weeks because that is when his unemployment Please see JENKINS, page 4A

Panel raises issue of public defender funding
TOPEKA — A group of senators used a confirmation hearing as a chance to raise their concerns about the level of support for funding the Kansas public defender system. Questions were raised Wednesday during hearings to confirm appointments by Gov.

Tim Owens, an Overland Park Republican, asked the pair if they would be willing to press Brownback
At the bridge being replaced on 23rd Street, the construction zone says 25 mph and then it goes down to 20 mph at the bottom of the hill. Is that enforced after hours when there are no workers, or is that just the expectation when workers are there?
Speeds in posted work zones are enforced continuously, in part, because of altered traffic patterns, lane closings, reduction of lane width and changes in lighting, according to Meagan Gilliland, the city’s communications manager.

for funding to keep the public defenders’ office functioning. “Will you be willing to go to the governor and go to the Legislature and say we need more money for this?” asked Owens, a lawyer and chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee. Beck and Smith indicated they would push for funds to ensure defendants have access to competent legal counsel. Owens, who lost a GOP primary Aug. 7 and won’t be back in Topeka next year, said the state should be concerned that a lack of adequate legal support could lead to lawsuits against the state.

BRIEFLY Shooting suspect may have called doc CENTENNIAL, COLO. — The suspect in the Colorado shooting rampage tried unsuccessfully to call his university psychiatrist 9 minutes before he opened fire during a Batman movie premiere, defense attorneys revealed in court Thursday. James Holmes placed the call to an after-hours number at a hospital at the University of Colorado, Anschutz campus, where Holmes psychiatrist Lynne Fenton could be reached, defense attorney Tamara Brady said. It wasn’t clear why he called Fenton, and she wasn’t immediately available to talk to him. Holmes, 24, is accused of opening fire during a midnight showing of “The Dark Knight Rises,” killing 12 people and injuring 58 others. The detail about the call came out during a hearing about his relationship with Fenton, to whom he mailed a package containing a notebook that reportedly contained violent descriptions of an attack. Prosecutors asked the judge to let them review the notebook as part of their investigation, while defense attorneys argued it was inadmissible because it was protected by doctor-patient privacy laws. Judge William B. Sylvester ruled that an ongoing doctor-patient relationship did exist between Fenton and Holmes, but he scheduled a Sept. 20 hearing to revisit the notebook issue.
Ex-SEAL author may face legal action WASHINGTON — The Pentagon’s top lawyer on Thursday informed the former Navy SEAL who wrote a forthcoming book describing details of the raid that killed Osama bin Laden that he violated agreements to not divulge military secrets and that as a result the Pentagon is considering taking legal action against him. The general counsel of the Defense Department, Jeh Johnson, wrote in a letter transmitted to the author that he had signed two nondisclosure agreements with the Navy in 2007 that obliged him to “never divulge” classified information. “This commitment remains in force even after you left the active duty Navy,” Johnson wrote. He said Matt Bissonnette left active duty “on or about April 20, 2012,” which was nearly one year after the May 2011 raid. By signing the agreements, Bissonnette acknowledged his awareness, Johnson wrote, that “disclosure of classified information constitutes a violation of federal criminal law.” He said it also obliged the author to submit his manuscript for a security review by the government before it was published.

Weakening Isaac hovers over Drought-weary farmers await waterlogged Louisiana storm’s remnants
By Cain Burdeau and Michael Kunzelman
By Jim Suhr
NEW ORLEANS — Isaac hovered over Louisiana for a third day Thursday, shedding more than a foot of additional rain that forced authorities to hurriedly evacuate areas ahead of the storm and rescue hundreds of people who could not escape as the rapidly rising waters swallowed entire neighborhoods. The huge spiral weather system weakened to a tropical depression as it crawled inland, but it caught many places off guard by following a meandering, unpredictable path. The storm’s excruciatingly slow movement meant that Isaac practically parked over low-lying towns and threw off great sheets of water for hours. “I was blindsided. Nobody expected this,” said Richard Musatchia, who fled his water-filled home in LaPlace, northwest of New Orleans. Inside the fortified levees that protected New Orleans, bursts of sunshine streamed through the thick clouds, and life began to return to normal. But beyond the city, people got their first good look at Isaac’s damage: Hundreds of homes were underwater. Half the state was without power at the one point. Thousands were staying at shelters. And the damage may not be done. Even more rain was expected in Louisiana before the storm finally drifts into
ST. LOUIS — Indiana farmer John Kolb normally would welcome storms that could provide his crops with badly needed water in this summer of drought. Instead, he and other Corn Belt farmers are nervously watching the forecast as Hurricane Isaac’s remnants slog their direction, concerned they could end up getting too much of a good thing. The reason for their worry: Strong winds could topple corn stalks already severely weakened by the nation’s worst drought in two generations, and a possible deluge could muddy the fields and slow bringing in whatever crop is still salvageable. “We could really use the moisture, but I don’t want wind,” Kolb, 41, said from the 2,000 acres of corn and soybeans he farms with his dad and uncle in southeastern Indiana’s Franklin County and the adjacent Butler County in Ohio. “The corn is just so weak. It’s been so dry that it kind of cannibalized itself. It fed off itself to try to stay alive and it wouldn’t take a whole lot to blow it down. “That would make it a tangled mess, and that’s pretty hard to harvest.” Isaac has lost strength since coming ashore late Tuesday as a Category 1 hurricane, with 80 mph winds near the mouth of the Mississippi River. But it’s still expected to provide a dousing for much of the nation’s midsection — from Arkansas north to Missouri and into a corner of Iowa, then east through Illinois and Indiana to

PEOPLE RESCUE COWS FROM FLOODWATERS after Isaac passed through the region Thursday in Plaquemines Parish, La. Isaac staggered toward central Louisiana early Thursday, its weakening winds still potent enough to drive storm surge into portions of the coast and the river parishes between New Orleans and Baton Rouge. Arkansas and Missouri. Isaac dumped as much as 16 inches in some areas, and about 500 people had to be rescued by boat or high-water vehicles. At least two deaths were reported. Five feet of water poured into Musatchia’s home before a neighbor passed by with a boat and evacuated him and his 6-year-old boxer, Renny. He piled two suitcases, a backpack and a few smaller bags onto the boat and said that was all he had left. He abandoned a brand-new Cadillac and a Harley-Davidson. “People have their generators, because they thought the power would go out, but no one expected” so much water,
Musatchia said. Other evacuees were picked up by National Guard vehicles, school buses and pickup trucks. Daphine and David Newman fled their newly decorated home with two trash bags of clothing. They have lived in their subdivision since 1992 and never had water in their home from previous storms, not even Hurricane Katrina. Crews intentionally breached a levee that was strained by Isaac’s floodwaters in southeast Louisiana’s Plaquemines Parish, which is outside the federal levee system. At the same time, water at a dam farther north in Mississippi was released in an effort to prevent flooding there.
Ohio — in coming days. Rainfall totals could reach up to 7 inches, according to a U.S. Drought Monitor weekly update Thursday. In Arkansas, farmers scrambled to bring in as much of their corn and rice as they could before Isaac’s wind and rain reached the state. With the storm blowing Thursday into southeast Arkansas, growers had to leave their fields and begin the wait to see what the storm will do to their crops. Isaac’s encroachment came as the latest weekly update by a droughttracking effort credited recent rains in the central U.S. with easing the dryness, even if it was far too late for some corn crops. The newest U.S. Drought Monitor map from the University of Nebraska’s National Drought Mitigation Center showed that the section of the continental U.S. in the worst two categories of drought — extreme and exceptional — remained relatively unchanged at 23.2 percent as of Tuesday. But thanks to rains last weekend, the amount of Iowa — the nation’s biggest corn producer — in the two worst drought classifications slid by 9 percentage points to 58.3 percent. Illinois saw a 7 percentage point drop-off to 69.6 percent as Kansas’ numbers fell 6 points to 90.1 percent. Missouri’s status improved nominally, slipping nearly 2 percentage points to 97.4 percent. Indiana’s portion in the two highest drought conditions rose, up 2.1 percentage points to 39.22 percent. Still, the rains may not be enough to help the corn crop.

cheers when he vowed to repeal Obama’s signature health care law. “This president can tell us it was someone else’s fault. This president can tell us that the next four years he’ll get it right. But this president cannot tell us that you are better off today than when he took office,” Romney declared. Clint Eastwood, legendary Hollywood tough guy, put the case for ousting Obama plainly moments before Romney made his entrance. “When somebody does not do the job, you’ve got to let ’em go,” he said to the cheers of thousands in the packed convention hall. The speech over, Romney was joined by running mate Paul Ryan, then their wives, and finally a stage full of their children and grandchildren. Confetti and thousands of red, white and blue balloons floated down from the rafters.

FROM LEFT, REPUBLICAN VICE PRESIDENTIAL NOMINEE Rep. Paul Ryan, Janna Ryan, Ann Romney and Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney wave to the delegates Thursday during the Republican National Convention in Tampa, Fla. most gentle in his criticism of Obama. “I wish President Obama had succeeded because I want America to succeed,” he said. “But his promises gave way to disappointment and division.” “This isn’t something we have to accept ,” he said, appealing to millions of voters who say they are disappointed in the president yet haven’t yet decided to cast their votes for his Republican challenger. “Now is the moment when we can stand up and say, ‘I’m an American. I make my destiny. And we deserve better! My children deserve better! My family deserves better! My country deserves better!” About Obama, Romney said, “Many Americans have given up on this president, but they haven’t ever thought about giving up. Not on themselves, Not on each other. And not on America.”
It’s the economy The economy is issue No. 1 in the race for the White House, and Romney presented his credentials as the man better equipped than the president to help create jobs. Speaker after speaker testified to the help their received from Bain Capital, the private equity firm that he created — and that Democrats argue often took over companies, loaded them down with debt and then walked away with huge fees as bankruptcy approached.
Romney offered no new information on what has so far been a short-ondetails pledge to reduce federal deficits and create 12 million jobs in a country where unemployment stands at 8.3 percent. Romney would have to nearly double the current, anemic pace of job growth to achieve 12 million jobs over four years. That’s conceivable in a healthy economy. Moody’s Analytics, a financial research operation, expects nearly that many jobs to return in four years no matter who occupies the White House, absent further economic setbacks. Romney’s steps for achieving the employment growth include deficit cuts that he has not spelled out and a march toward energy independence that past presidents have promised but never delivered. He has called for extension of tax cuts due to expire at all income levels at the end of the year, and an additional 20 percent across the board cut in rates. But he has yet to sketch which tax breaks he will eliminate or cut to prevent deficits from rising. Nor has he been forthcoming about where to make the trillions in spending cuts needed to redeem his pledge of major deficit reduction, or about his promise to rein in Medicare or other government benefit programs before they go broke.

BRIEFLY Man, 74, faces child sex charges Lawrence police arrested a 74-year-old Lawrence man Thursday morning on two child sex crime charges. Sgt. Trent McKinley, a police spokesman, said officers arrested the suspect following a recent investigation of sexual abuse of a female child. He was booked into Douglas County Jail on two counts of aggravated indecent liberties with a child. McKinley said officers believed the alleged abused occurred over a period of several months at a residence in east Lawrence. The alleged victim knew the suspect, he said. Investigators were forwarding information to Douglas County prosecutors to review for a decision about formal charges, which could come today. The Journal-World generally does not identify sex crime suspects unless they are convicted.
Tongie student hit by SUV A Tonganoxie Middle School student was taken to an area hospital after being hit by a vehicle after school Thursday. Tonganoxie police Chief Jeff Brandau said Allyson Sparks, a TMS fifth-grader, was struck by a sport-utility vehicle about 3:15 p.m. The girl was crossing Washington Street and headed north on East Street, Brandau said. There is not a crosswalk at the intersection. She was taken to Children’s Mercy Hospital in Kansas City, Mo., by Leavenworth County Emergency Medical Services, Brandau said. She suffered a broken femur in the accident, Brandau said. The accident still is under investigation, but no citations currently are planned to be issued, Brandau said.
County clerk offers voter assistance A voter identification and registration drive is scheduled from 3 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. Sept. 13 at Lawrence Presbyterian Manor, 1429 Kasold Drive.

To get such a card, a voter must be registered. A utility bill, bank statement, government check or other government-issued document with name or address can be used to obtain a photo ID card. The public is invited to participate.

After losing to a team of firefighters the first two years in an annual flag football game, a team of Lawrence and Douglas County law enforcement officers hope this year’s game will turn out differently. “We have put some practice time in,” said Kansas University police Officer Damon Tucker, who helps organize the team of cops. “We definitely want to pull it out this year. We need to win.” For Lawrence-Douglas County Fire Medical Capt. Justin Temple, his side would be fine with another victory and a chance to get in some good-natured ribbing throughout the year. “There’s a little bit of pride in trying to keep winning,” said Temple, who helps organize the
organization’s operations, but she said the exposure it brings to the mission of pairing mentors with youths is important, too. “We want to grow it every year,” Brashler said. The game is also special for Tucker, the KU officer, who originally was instrumental in getting it started in 2010. Tucker had a big brother, or a “big,” when he was a boy growing up in Topeka. “When I was a ‘little’ I took a lot away from it, and I gained a lot of friends and contacts and a had a lot of good experiences,” Tucker said. “I think when I became an adult I knew that I wanted to be able to give back to the program.” And Temple, the fire captain, said he hoped the game could become a major tradition as well. “It’s pretty good when some of the kids,” he said, “get to come out and see us having fun out there.”
Eisenhower Memorial to have high-tech side WASHINGTON (AP) — Despite ongoing disagreement over designs for a national memorial honoring President Dwight D. Eisenhower in the nation’s capital, planners are creating a high-tech virtual memorial to accompany the future monument. Development of the memorial has been delayed for months amid objections from Eisenhower’s family over famed architect Frank Gehry’s design. Gehry’s plan calls for a memorial park with statues of the president and World War II hero framed by large metal tapestries depicting Eisenhower’s boyhood home in Kansas. Now a congressional commission working to build the memorial has quietly launched a preview of an “e-memorial” being developed online to show how multimedia features would complement Gehry’s design for a site near the National Mall. The e-memorial will in-
clude a mobile app using “augmented reality” technology to superimpose historic images and recordings onto Gehry’s memorial scene and tapestries. The memorial park, though, will remain a contemplative space for visitors who want a quieter experience. One key focus point will be Eisenhower’s leadership on D-Day in World War II. As visitors walk through the memorial, they can look at the scene through a smartphone camera. Pictures from D-Day will appear as Eisenhower addressed his troops. Later visitors can hear his voice through a radio address as he spoke to the world at that moment. Eisenhower’s family has called for a simple memorial to reflect Ike’s modesty. Susan Eisenhower, one of the president’s granddaughters, has said broader storytelling from history should be left to museums, not monuments.

Court Republicans ignoring signs Crash involving rejects of some economic gains 100-year-old driver rekindles age debate Texas Man struck 11 people backing voter ID out of grocery store parking lot law By Tom Raum
By Will Weissert Associated Press
AUSTIN, TEXAS — A tough Texas law requiring voters to show photo identification at the polls discriminates against low-income blacks and Hispanics, a federal court ruled Thursday, wiping out for the November election a measure championed by conservatives and setting up a potential U.S. Supreme Court showdown. In Washington, a threejudge panel unanimously ruled that the 2011 law imposes “strict, unforgiving burdens on the poor” and noted that Texas’ racial minorities are more likely to live in poverty. It was the state’s second major loss in court in three days, coming after a separate federal panel ruled Tuesday that Texas’ Republican-dominated Legislature failed to avoid “discriminatory purposes” when drawing new maps for congressional districts and both houses of the state Legislature to reflect the Texas’ booming population. “In a matter of two days, the state of Texas has had its dirty laundry aired out across the national stage,” said Democratic state Rep. Trey Martinez Fischer, chairman of the Mexican American Legislative Conference. “This deals with the despicable issues of discrimination, voter suppression, these are things that we’re not proud of.” The voter ID decision could set a precedent for upcoming legal challenges to similar laws in other states. South Carolina’s strict photo ID law is on trial this week in front of another three-judge panel in the same federal courthouse It also underscores a widespread push, largely by Republican-controlled legislatures and governors’ offices, to impose strict identification requirements on voters. But Democrats say fraud at the polls is largely nonexistent and that Republicans are trying to disenfranchise minorities, poor people and college students — all groups that tend to vote Democratic. State Attorney General Greg Abbott said he will appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court, “where we are confident we will prevail.” He also told the Associated Press late Thursday that there is now definitely not enough time to salvage the law for the November election. Republican Gov. Rick Perry said, “Chalk up another victory for fraud.” “Today, federal judges subverted the will of the people of Texas,” Perry said. Election administrators and academics who study the issue generally say in-person fraud is rare because someone would have to impersonate a registered voter and risk arrest. “The law was so broad and unreasonable that clearly its goal was to suppress minority votes and thereby change the nature of the Texas electorate,” said Gary Bledsoe, president of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People in Texas. In 2011, new voter ID laws passed in Kansas, Mississippi, Rhode Island and Wisconsin, while Alabama and Tennessee tightened existing voter ID laws to require photo ID. Governors in Minnesota, Missouri, Montana, New Hampshire and North Carolina vetoed such laws.
WASHINGTON — You wouldn’t know it from listening to the Republican National Convention, but the nation’s economic picture seems to be slowly getting a little brighter. Not a lot, and not very fast. Yet there are some glimmers. But a steady drumbeat of gloom and doom is predictably being sounded at the GOP gathering in Tampa, Fla. — even by Republican governors who are quick to tout economic improvements in their own states. Nationally, the recent gains are modest and won’t do much to push the unemployment rate down much below its present 8.3 percent level before the Nov. 6 presidential election. But economists cite some encouraging new data:
The government reported Thursday that Americans spent at the fastest pace in five months in July, and personal income rose as well.
Home prices rose in the first half of 2012 for the first time in nearly two years. Sales of both new and previously occupied homes also are up.
Employers added 163,000 jobs in July, the most since February.
U.S. exports, retail spending and factory production are all up. Yet phrases such as “catastrophic debt,” “stifling the American dream,” “the tide of decline” and “an all-out assault on free enterprise” fill the air in the convention arena. The rhetoric fits the GOP strategy of portraying President Barack Obama as out of touch and pursuing policies that have made the economy worse, not better,

REPUBLICAN NATIONAL COMMITTEE RNC CHAIRMAN Reince Priebus announces the display of the debt ticker Monday during the Republican National Convention in Tampa, Fla. You wouldn’t know it from listening to the Republican National Convention, but the nation’s economic picture seems to be slowly getting a little brighter. while Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney is presented as the one with the business experience and savvy to turn things around. Of course, Democrats get their turn for rebuttal next week at their own convention in Charlotte, N.C. But there are risks to sounding too optimistic on the economy. Obama has been relatively cautious — welcoming recent positive reports but warning there’s still a long road to a full recovery. To be more upbeat might play into GOP efforts to cast him as insensitive to the millions of Americans who remain jobless or are otherwise economically challenged. Also, on Sept. 7, the morning after Obama accepts the Democratic nomination for a second term, the government releases unemployment figures for August. No one expects stellar figures. Indeed, the economic recovery in the U.S. is the weakest of any since the Great Depression. Eco-
nomic growth has never been feebler in a postwar recovery, consumer spending has never been so slack and only once before has job growth been slower, according to an Associated Press analysis this month. A report released Tuesday showed the U.S. economy grew at a 1.7 percent annual rate from April to June — an upward revision from the initial 1.5 percent estimate but still signaling continued sluggishness. Gasoline prices have been rising again toward $4 a gallon. Concerns remain over debt problems in Europe and a slowdown in China. And despite improving U.S. job and housing markets, consumer confidence is at its lowest level since November 2011. Nigel Gault, chief U.S. economist at IHS Global Insight, said “housing is the area where you’ve got the most positives,” and that’s extremely important since housing weaknesses were a central cause of the downturn.
BUSINESS AT A GLANCE
Notable Americans spent at the fastest pace in five months in July after earning a little more. The increase in income and consumer spending could help boost an economy mired in subpar growth. Consumer spending rose 0.4 percent in July from June, the Commerce Department said Thursday. That followed no change in June and a slight decline in May. Income grew 0.3 percent, matching the gains from May and June. Americans also earned 0.3 percent more after paying taxes.

Retailers see best sales growth since March By Anne D’innocenzio Associated Press
NEW YORK — This summer, Americans were walking contradictions: They opened their wallets despite escalating fears about the slow economic recovery and surging gas prices. A group of 18 retailers ranging from discounter Target to departmentstore chain Macy’s reported August sales on Thursday that rose 6 percent — the industry’s best performance since March — according to trade group International Council of Shopping Centers. At the same time, the government released numbers showing that Americans spent in July at the fastest clip in five months. The news appears to show that what Americans say and do are two different things: The reports come two days after a private research firm said consumer confidence in August fell to its lowest level since November 2011 as Americans grew more concerned about the job market, business conditions and the overall economy. “This is bit of a head scratcher,” said Mark Vitner, a Wells Fargo Securities senior economist. “This runs counter to most of the other data related to the consumer.” But Roxane Battle Morrison, 50, said there’s a logical explanation for the
paradox. The Plymouth, Minn., resident said she is more worried about the economy, but she spent in August for one reason: she needed to help her 18-yearold son Jared get ready for college. So, Morrison, who produces videos for a nondenominational church, has stashed money away every month over the past year to save nearly $1,300 to buy him books, sheets, a futon bed, and other dorm room accessories. “I was counting every nickel, looking at every price tag,” she said. That consumers like Morrison are spending is an encouraging sign, but that they are doing so hesitantly is something retailers and economists will be watching closely. Consumer spending accounts for 70 percent of economic activity. And while only a small group of merchants representing roughly 13 percent of the $2.4 trillion U.S. retail industry report monthly revenue figures, the August numbers still offer a glimpse at how Americans are spending. The revenue gains in August, which only factor in stores that were open at least a year, are better than the 4- to 5 percent increase Wall Street predicted at the beginning of the month. And it was the industry’s best performance since March, when stores collectively posted a gain of 6.8 percent.
LOS ANGELES — Jack Wyard is 92 and sees no reason to surrender his car keys, not to mention the freedom they give him to get up and go anywhere he wants, whenever he wants. After all, he said, two years ago he got a perfect score on his written test to renew his license. “I don’t know what to suggest for anyone else, but I’m still comfortable on the highway and I enjoy driving,” the retired sales manager from Los Angeles said Thursday. A day earlier, a 100-year-old man who was attempting to back his Cadillac out of a grocery store parking lot struck and injured 11 people, nine of them children. The accident in front of a South Los Angeles elementary school where children had lined up to buy afterschool treats brought to the forefront again a debate over how old is too old to keep driving. Is it 80? Or 90? And should anyone past 100 be allowed behind the wheel? With the American Automobile Association reporting that 10,000 Americans are turning 65 every day, it’s a debate that will only intensify in coming years. “I don’t think there should be a set age because people age differently,” said Ruth Nadel, 98, who was in her mid80s when she decided it was time to hand over the keys to someone else. After her vehicle was in a
head-on collision, her children convinced her that, while she wasn’t to blame, her inability to get out of the way of an oncoming car indicated her reflexes might have slowed. They told her it wasn’t worth risking another wreck and hurting herself or someone else. She said she has no regrets, although she believes she could have driven for a few more years. While there should be no age limit, the Washington, D.C., woman said, a driving test would be good. She suggested 80 as a reasonable age for that, adding that a person could be retested every five years. “But that’s as far as I’d go with it,” she added. Indeed, many states do. California is one of 28 states that have special requirements for older people renewing driver’s licenses. While younger California drivers with good driving records may automatically be granted two five-year license renewals, anyone over 70 must come to a DMV office and take a written test and eye exam. The notion that older drivers are more likely to get in crashes is not borne out by the statistics. On average, drivers in their mid- to late-80s have lower crash rates per mile driven than those in their early 20s, said Jake Nelson, AAA’s director of traffic safety advocacy and research. And still, none of those groups drive as bad as teenagers — the nation’s riskiest drivers, he said.

Egypt leader in Iran: World must back Syrian rebels By Brian Murphy and Nasser Karimi Associated Press

THAI MASSEUSES PERFORM MASS MASSAGING Thursday at a sport arena on the outskirts of Bangkok, Thailand. Thailand has long been known as the massage capital of the world. Now, it has a Guinness World Record to prove it when some 641 massage therapists mass-massaged 641 people simultaneously for 12 minutes to win the honor Thursday at an indoor arena in Bangkok. The event was organized by the Health Ministry to promote the Southeast Asian nation’s massage and spa industry.
Message in bottle sets world record LONDON — It was scooped up from the sea after 98 years, and now officials say a message in a bottle discovered in Scotland has set a world record. Fisherman Andrew Leaper found the bottle— released in 1914 — in his nets in April while sailing east of the Shetland Islands, which lie off Scotland’s northern coast. Guinness World Records confirmed Thursday the find is the oldest message in a bottle ever recovered, beating a previous record by five years. It was released in a batch of 1,890 bottles in a government experiment to map the undercurrents of the seas around Scotland. Inside each bottle, a postcard asks the finder to record details of the discovery and promises a reward of a sixpence. Unfortunately for Leaper, the coin no longer exists.
Cooking oil fumes lead to jet landing VIENNA — An investigation into why a Lufthansa commercial jet made an unscheduled stop at an Austrian airport last week has arrived at its conclusion: smelly cooking oil. Boris Ogorski, a spokesman for the German carrier, says fumes and smoke from the cooking oil in the jet’s kitchen spread throughout the plane as meals were being warmed, creating a “penetrating odor” and sickening some of the passengers. The aircraft — an Embraer 195 with 115 passengers on board — broke off its scheduled flight from Sofia, Bulgaria, to Munich Thursday, landing smoothly instead in the Austrian city of Linz. Passengers then boarded other flights for their destination. Ogorski said Thursday the reason for the unscheduled landing is unusual, “but the crew did the right thing.”
Rowling to build tree houses LONDON — J.K. Rowling is building two tree houses fit for a wizard. Despite some complaints from neighbors, the City of Edinburgh Council said Thursday it has approved the Harry Potter author’s application to create the large tree houses in her garden for her children. The structures, each about 40 feet high, feature tall conical roofs and turreted windows in the style of Hogwarts Castle in the Harry Potter movies. Artist impressions submitted to the council show that they will be built on wooden stilts and are connected by a rope bridge. Other features included are lanterns above the doors, a spiral staircase, balconies, a trap door, and a steel slide. Several neighbors had written to object, saying the tree-houses may be visible from the road through a gap in the conifers that shield the development and could affect the area’s landscape.
U.N. nuke agency: Iran ‘significantly’ hampers probe “
By George Jahn
VIENNA — Iran has effectively shut down a probe of a site suspected of being used for work on nuclear weapons development while doubling the number of machines it could use to make the core of nuclear warheads at an underground bunker safe from airborne attack, the U.N. nuclear agency said in a report Thursday. Senior diplomats familiar with the International Atomic Energy Agency’s latest report called both developments troubling, while cautioning that it was unclear how many of the more than 2,000 centrifuges now installed at the Fordo site were operational. They noted that agency inspectors did not have access to check their inner workings. They also said it was unclear what the ultimate use of the machines would be, if and when they are turned on. Iran is enriching uranium at a level that could be used for reactor fuel as well as grades closer to the level used for nuclear warheads, and the officials said Iranian officials had not said what level the centrifuges now installed but not working would be used for. The two diplomats, who are familiar with the IAEA’s Iran investigation, demanded anonymity because they were not authorized to comment on the confidential report. Importantly, the report noted that Iran had not significantly increased the pace of either low or higher-level uranium enrichment. It noted that less than 700 of the machines — all producing higher level material at 20 percent — were operating at Fordo, and about 10,000 were turning out lower-level enriched uranium at another site. Those are approximately the same numbers as mentioned in the agency’s last report in May. The report also noted that Iran has turned much of the uranium that was enriched to the higher, 20-percent levels into reactor fuel plates that are difficult to retool into fissile warhead material. As a result, it is still far short of the amount of higher enriched uranium it would need to quickly enrich the element further
The window of opportunity to resolve this diplomatically remains open but it will not remain open indefinitely.” — White House spokesman Jay Carney
to weapons-grade levels. While Iran already has enough low-grade enriched uranium to make several nuclear weapons, that process would take long enough to send alarm signals to the outside world. Tom Z. Collina and Daryl Kimball of the Washington-based Arms Control Association said the common assumption is “that if Tehran were to decide to ‘break out’ and race to build a bomb, it would try to do so by using its still small stock of 20-percent enriched uranium.” They called the IAEA report “another troubling reminder of Iran’s proliferation potential,” while describing it as “not a ‘game-changer’ in terms of Tehran’s capability to build a nuclear arsenal if it were to decide to do so.” Iran denies any interest in nuclear arms, insisting it is enriching uranium only to make reactor fuel and medical isotopes, and for scientific research. Still, concerns have grown about its ultimate aims because it has refused to stop enriching uranium despite increasingly severe international sanctions and outside offers of enriched material for its stated needs. As signs grow that international efforts are failing to engage Iran diplomatically on its nuclear program, so are threats of attack from Israel, which says it will not tolerate an Iran armed with nuclear weapons. Asked about the latest report, White House spokesman Jay Carney told reporters that President Barack Obama “has made clear frequently that he is determined to prevent Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon and he has led an unprecedented effort to pressure Iran to live up to its obligations.” “The window of opportunity to resolve this diplomatically remains open but it will not remain open indefinitely,” he said.
TEHRAN, IRAN — In a sweeping message that Iran is on the wrong side of Syria’s civil war, Egypt’s new president urged the world Thursday to support the rebels seeking to topple Bashar Assad and suggested that Tehran could risk a deepening confrontation with regional powers over the fate of the regime in Damascus. The stinging comments by President Mohammed Morsi — making his first visit to Iran by an Egyptian leader since the 1979 Islamic Revolution — was another blindside blow for Iran as host of an international gathering of socalled nonaligned nations. His speech, delivered while seated next to Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, prompted Syria’s delegation to walk out of the gathering. Iran’s leaders have claimed that the weeklong meeting, which wraps up today, displayed the futility of Western attempts to isolate the country over its nuclear program. But Iran also was forced to endure criticism from Morsi and another highprofile guest, U.N. Secretary-General Ban Kimoon, who cited concerns about Iran’s human rights record and called its condemnations of Israel unacceptable. It’s highly unlikely that Iran would abandon Assad as long as there is a chance for him — or at least the core of his regime — to hang on. Iran counts on Syria as a strategic outlet to the Mediterranean and a conduit to its anti-Israeli proxy Hezbollah in Lebanon. But the meeting highlighted how much Iran is out of step with the rest of the region over Syria. Other major rebel backers at the conference included Gulf states led by Iran rival Saudi Arabia. “The bloodshed in Syria is the responsibility of all of us and will not stop until there is real intervention to stop it. The Syrian crisis is bleeding our hearts,” Morsi told delegates at the 120-nation Nonaligned Movement, a Cold War-era group of mostly developing nations that Tehran seeks to transform into a powerful

A major effort by Iran has been trying to showcase its nuclear narrative and cementing oil deals and trade with Asia and Africa to offset the hits from Western sanctions. But some critics question whether the group — promoted as a third way for developing nations during the decades of Washington-Moscow brinksmanship — is too diverse and splintered by too many divisions, such as Syria, to find any common policies. “Morsi’s comments violated the traditions of the summit and are considered interference in Syrian internal affairs,” said Syrian Foreign Minister Walid al-Moallem, who headed the Syrian delegation. He also accused Morsi of “instigating bloodshed in Syria,” according to quotes reported by the state-owned Al-Ikhbariya TV. He didn’t elaborate. Morsi’s address pushed Iran further into a corner. In effect, he demanded Iran join the growing anti-Assad consensus or risk deeper estrangement from Egypt and other regional heavyweights such as Turkey and Saudi Arabia. State Department spokesman Patrick Ventrell welcomed Morsi’s comments on Syria as “very clear and very strong,” particularly as they were made in Tehran “to some people who need to hear it there.” “We share Egypt’s goal to see an end to the Assad regime, and an end to the bloodshed, and a transition to a democratic Syria that respects human rights,”
Ventrell told a news conference in Washington. Ahram Online, a stateowned news website in Egypt, said Morsi “all but equated the Assad regime with the Israeli occupation of Palestine when he referred to the struggle for freedom by the Palestinian and Syrian peoples.” Morsi has proposed that Iran take part in a four-nation contact group that would include Egypt, Turkey and Saudi Arabia to mediate an end to the Syrian crisis. Ban also said Iran has a key role to play in finding a solution to end Syria’s civil war, which activists say has claimed at least 20,000 lives. But Syrian rebels say they reject Iran’s participation in any peace efforts. Morsi reiterated his position against any kind of foreign military intervention in Syria, but is working closely with countries such as Turkey and Saudi Arabia that have openly backed the rebel forces. Morsi held talks on Syria with Ahmadinejad in a closed-door meeting that lasted 40 minutes in the same conference center where the summit was taking place, diplomats said. He told Ahmadinejad that Tehran must end its support for Assad in order prevent any chance of Western intervention, according to the diplomats who spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to talk to reporters.

Oread plan The strength of design guidelines being developed for the Oread neighborhood is that they recognize the varied needs of a diverse area.
plan to create design guidelines for the Oread neighborhood east and north of the Kansas University campus is a positive step because it recognizes that various parts of the neighborhood serve different purposes and have different needs. The Oread neighborhood wraps around campus on the north and east from Ninth to 17th streets and from Michigan Street to downtown. While areas adjacent to campus are heavily populated by students living in multi-family housing, other parts of the neighborhood still include more single-family homes, some of which have a historical character worth preserving. There always has been a certain amount of tension in Oread between single-family property owners and multi-family landlords. Recognizing and formalizing some natural divisions within the area is a valid way to stabilize the neighborhood and allow various uses to happily coexist. Although details of the plan still are being fleshed out, the basis of the new design guidelines is to separate the neighborhood into distinct areas. Most of the area just east of campus from 10th Street to 16th Street would be designated as a high-density district to accommodate the many multi-family uses that already exist in that area. An area that’s generally just east and north of the highdensity district would be designated as medium-density, and several blocks just north of Memorial Stadium would be low density. The maps currently under discussion also recognize to two historic districts: the Hancock Historic District, which covers a small area where 12th Street dead-ends west of Indiana Street; and the Oread Historic District, which covers a considerably larger area and includes a number of notable structures just north, east and south of KU’s GSP-Corbin residence hall complex. Although the plan may include some architectural guidelines, protection for mature trees and other measures to protect the character of the neighborhood, much of the document will focus on building sizes, how buildings are positioned on lots and how to incorporate parking for residents — a perennial bone of contention among Oread residents. The goal is not to downzone or reduce multi-family housing in the neighborhood, but to set standards that will allow the different uses in the neighborhood to exist in harmony. One of the signs that the city is on the right track with this plan is that both owners who occupy houses in the neighborhood and owners of rental property there seem satisfied with the direction the city is heading. Oread is an important part of the Lawrence and the Kansas University community and both entities should take an active interest in maintaining it as an attractive and active neighborhood.

Election a test for conservatives WASHINGTON — Now begins the final phase of this cognitive dissonance campaign. America’s 57th presidential election is the first devoted to calling the nation’s bluff. When Mitt Romney selected Paul Ryan, Republicans undertook the perilous but commendable project of forcing voters to face the fact that they fervently hold flatly incompatible beliefs. Twice as many Americans identify themselves as conservative as opposed to liberal. Nov. 6, we will know if they mean it. If they are ideologically conservative but operationally liberal. If they talk like Jeffersonians but want to be governed by Hamiltonians. If their commitment to limited government is rhetorical or actual. If it is, as Daniel Patrick Moynihan suspected, a “civic religion, avowed but not constraining.” This is the problem for uneasy Republicans. The Democrats’ problem is worse because they are not uneasy about their dissonance, being blissfully unaware of it. In “Spoiled Rotten: How the Politics of Patronage Corrupted the Once Noble Democratic Party and Now Threatens the American Republic” — a book more measured and scholarly than its overwrought title — Jay Cost of The Weekly Standard says the party has succumbed to “clientelism,” the process of purchasing cohorts of voters with federal favors. This has turned the party
Twice as many Americans identify themselves as conservative as opposed to liberal. Nov. 6, we will know if they mean it. If they are ideologically conservative but operationally liberal.” into the servant of the strong. Before Franklin Roosevelt, “liberal” described policies emphasizing liberty and individual rights. He, however, pioneered the politics of collective rights — of group entitlements. And his liberalism systematically developed policies not just to buy the allegiance of existing groups but to create groups that henceforth would be dependent on government. Under FDR, liberalism became the politics of creating an electoral majority from a mosaic of client groups. Labor unions got special legal standing, farmers got crop supports, business people
got tariff protection and other subsidies, the elderly got pensions, and so on and on. Government no longer existed to protect natural rights but to confer special rights on favored cohorts. In the 1960s, public-employee unions were expanded to feast from quantitative liberalism (favors measured in quantities of money). And qualitative liberalism was born as environmentalists, feminists and others got government to regulate behavior in the service of social “diversity,” “meaningful” work, etc. Cost notes that with the 1982 amendments to the Voting Rights Act, a few government-approved minorities were given an entitlement to public offices: About 40 “majority-minority” congressional districts would henceforth be guaranteed to elect minority members. Republicans also practice clientelism, but with a (sometimes) uneasy conscience. Both parties have narrowed their appeals as they have broadened their search for clients to cosset. Today’s Democratic Party does not understand what one of its saints understood — that big government is generally a patron of the privileged, a partner of rent-seekers. When vetoing the 1832 bill to recharter the Second Bank of the United States, Andrew Jackson said, “It is to be regretted that the rich and powerful too often bend the acts
of government to their selfish purposes.” When government goes beyond equal protection by law and undertakes to allocate wealth and opportunity, “the humble members of society — the farmers, mechanics and laborers — who have neither the time nor the means of securing like favors to themselves, have a right to complain of the injustice of their government.” As Cost rightly says, “With the exception of the tea party, there is no real faction out there making the Jacksonian case for an end to special privilege.” Human beings, said one of the wisest of them — Aristotle — are political animals and language-using animals. Americans, as you do not need to be Aristotle to know, are complaining animals. They use language to complain about politics. Mitt Romney should remind them that one function of elections is to force most voters — the winning majorities — to forfeit the fun of complaining. For example, if the swing state of Nevada, which has the nation’s highest unemployment rate (12 percent), votes for four more years of current policies, it must henceforth suffer in silence. Actually, all those who vote to continue Barack Obama’s distinctive brand of clientelism — crony capitalism — must, if he wins, become political Trappists, taking a vow to keep quiet. — George Will is a columnist for Washington Post Writers Group.
OLD HOME TOWN
From the Lawrence Daily Journal-World for Aug. 31, 1912: YEARS “Fred Laptad. AGO living north of IN 1912 Lawrence, is a firm believer in the anti-hog cholera serum as it is being prepared at the State Agricultural college and is urging all hog raisers of the county to use it at once and even before there are signs of the disease among their hogs and thus check the disease which is showing signs of breaking out here. Mr. Laptad has used the serum with wonderful success with his own hogs and recommends it unhesitatingly to other raisers and breeders of the county.” — Compiled by Sarah St. John

Air-conditioned Robinson is rec answer By Jerry Harper
For the price of an air conditioner, Lawrence can accomplish about everything it proposes to do with the Schwada-Fritzel “sports village.” At the initial sports village promotional meeting, Bob Sanner of the Lawrence Sports Corporation said that his main basketball tournament problem was the summer season because KU’s Robinson Center wasn’t air-conditioned. With that inexpensive fix, Lawrence can offer the tournament world eight basketball courts (two at Robinson, six at Ambler) within the shadow of fabled Allen Fieldhouse. Need more courts? Use the recreation centers’ six courts and another dozen or so at Haskell and the public schools. If you can’t sell tournaments with an offering like that, then you’re in the wrong business. Whether you buy an air conditioner or build a sports village, NCAA Bylaw 184.108.40.206 may be a problem. KU can’t host tournaments where prospective boy-basketballrecruits participate “on its campus or at an off-campus facility regularly used by the institution for practice and/ or competition by any of the institution’s sport programs.” It’s a transparent “fig leaf” to argue that KU isn’t “hosting” tournaments ostensibly sponsored by others, whether
YOUR TURN on campus or at the sports village, given the fact that:
The June 19 letter from a city-hired consulting firm says, “It is our understanding that the City of Lawrence is contemplating a public-private partnership to develop a youth sports complex with potential partners including the City, the University of Kansas, Harper the Assists Foundation (Bill and Cindy Self) and others.”
The city manager says, “We think the fact Lawrence and college basketball are thought of together by so many people across the country will be a marketing advantage.” (Journal-World, Aug. 3)
Roger Morningstar, former KU star and tournament expert, says, for the sports village to succeed “you have to have a tremendous amount of cooperation among the organizations that may use it. I think that is what makes Lawrence’s proposal unique. The city and the university could really work together to make this something more than a place with just a few gyms.” (Journal-World, Aug. 3)
Since the Schwada-Fritzel scheme isn’t necessary, the real quandary is what to do with all of that extra sales tax/ infrastructure money. Here are some ideas (in no particular order of preference):
Repeal all or most of the 1994 voter-approved sales tax and reduce local sales taxes. (Lawrence presently has the highest sales tax rate of any of the “old” Big 12 cities and one of the highest in Kansas. Purchases in the sports village and adjoining commercial space would have a sales tax rate of nearly 11 percent.)
Use the sales tax money to eliminate the need for a city property tax mill levy increase.
Use it to hire additional police officers. The 2010 Benchmark City Survey, which included Lawrence and 27 other cities, ranked Lawrence second highest in rates of crime. (Is it more important to be No. 1 in crime or in basketball courts?)
Use it to build an actual recreation center with two full-size courts and a walking track on the 37 acres the city already owns next to Free State High School. (It is more centrally located. It doesn’t require $6 million-plus in infrastructure improvements. It is far more consistent with the promised use of the 1994 sales tax, i.e. for parks and recreation projects and not economic development. It allows
the Schwada property way out west to develop as non-subsidized market forces dictate.)
Build a recreation center for northwest Lawrence, but also add a second full-size court to the Holcom and East Lawrence centers. (This provides equitable and conveniently located space throughout Lawrence. KU can locate its track south of the fieldhouse as previously proposed. Keeps it close to the Horejsi Center, which allows it to make use of adequate, existing parking for the KU Relays. Maybe even throw in flush toilets for the baseball stadium.) Instead of just suiting up for whichever team currently fields the most energetic cheerleaders, the city ought to think things through — especially now when scarce tax dollars are needed for a $40 million law enforcement center, $50 million sewage plant, and a school bond issue. In addition, the Brownback tax cuts are projected to significantly increase local sales and property taxes. As near as I can tell, there really has been no objective effort to compare the sports village to far less-expensive options, or to rank it in importance against other important projects. Instead, the city has paid for a report confirming what it has apparently already decided to do. — Jerry Harper is a Lawrence resident and a semi-retired attorney.

Coveted ‘Cat’ ‘difference-maker’ By Gary Bedore email@example.com
One of the top high school basketball point guards in the Class of 2013 will make an official recruiting visit to Kansas University this weekend. Anthony “Cat” Barber, a 6-foot-2, 165-pound senior from Hampton (Va.) High School who is ranked No. 9 overall by Rivals.com, will be on campus today through Sunday morning. He’s Virginia’s reigning Group AAA player of the year after averaging 21.3 points a game for the Crabbers, who went 27-5 and won the school’s first state championship in 15 years. “He’s a McDonald’s AllAmerica-type player, a difference-maker,” said Shay Wildeboor, analyst for Rivals.com. “He’s probably the fastest point guard in the class in terms of getting the ball up and down the court. He’s a playmaker and a scorer, a guy the staff identified early. His AAU coach (Boo Williams) has known coach Dooley (Joe, KU assistant) for 30 years and knows everything there is to know about KU’s program.” Barber has one of the most colorful nicknames of anybody in the recruiting class. “When I was little, my sister said I used to run around and climb on stuff,” Barber told NBCSports.com, in explaining the moniker. “I guess she said I was like a cat, so they just started calling me that.” Apparently, it had nothing to do with being as quick as a cat. “That could be too,” he told NBCsports.com, “but I just used to move a lot, so she called me that.” Barber has a final list of KU, Alabama, Louisville and North Carolina State. “Kansas has great tradition, and coach (Bill) Self does a great job,” AAU coach Williams told jayhawkslant. com. “Everybody knows that Kansas is a great program, but Anthony wants to make sure he’s comfortable and he wants to see how he interacts with the team.” O

The program is designed to address the needs of families and equip them to move into permanent housing as quickly as possible.”

Firebirds go 2-0 in debut By Benton Smith
A lot of times you’ve just got to dig down deep On the brink of seeing her and get that one good team lose a match in its season-opening home triangular play.” email@example.com
Thursday night, Free State High volleyball coach Nancy Hopkins needed a way to get the Firebirds’ attention. FSHS had already swept Lansing, and Hopkins didn’t want to see a potentially good night ruined by Topeka Seaman, which led by as many as five points roughly midway through the third and final game. So the 16th-year Firebirds coach changed her tone in a huddle. “Sometimes you’ve got to get brutally honest with them and say what they may not want to hear,” Hopkins said. With that, Free State battled back to knock off the Vikings, 25-18, 19-25 and 25-22. Seaman held a 17-14 advantage when the Firebirds (2-
— Free State senior Molly Ryan 0) began stringing together plays. Senior Bailey Harrell scored a point with a tip to key a 5-0 run. Later, junior Grace Miller tied the deciding game at 20 with a kill. Then senior Faythe Brungardt served an ace, and Ashley Powers set up Miller for another huge kill. Though the Vikings regrouped and tied the game at 22, back-to-back Seaman mistakes, as well as a flying dig by senior Katy Davis, set the table for the match point, a Kylie Dever assist to Miller for one last kill. Senior Molly Ryan, who had three kills and a block in the fi-
nal game of the night, said the match was intense. “A lot of times you’ve just got to dig down deep and get that one good play,” Ryan said, “and usually that one play makes you able to push through.” Hopkins said improved passing keyed Free State’s turnaround versus Seaman after it handled Lansing, 25-22, 25-22. She said the Firebirds showed they have a lot of talent in their opener. “It’s nice to know they can come back from a deficit, I’ll put it that way,” she said. “But I’d rather they not build that hole to start with.” Junior Morgan Knapp said the Firebirds didn’t mind being challenged after having an easier time against Lansing. “Seaman fought back a lot more and gave us a more competitive game to go off of,” Knapp said. On Sept. 6, FSHS will play at Olathe South’s quadrangular.
On the day before his team’s first game, Free State coach Kelly Barah had his players work on their corner-kick sets. It ended up paying off just 14 minutes into the season. Firebirds junior Alex Trent knocked in a header off a corner-kick feed from senior Evan Smith, starting the scoring in the Firebirds’ 6-0, season-opening victory over Bonner Springs on Thursday at Free State. “That’s a perfect start,” Smith said of the goal. “It’s exactly what we were looking for.” Smith delivered his higharching pass to the far post, where Trent charged in uncovered. At first, the midfielder thought he might have started his run a second too late. “I knew where I was supposed to go. It was a good ball; it was perfect — right to me,” Trent said. “I just went up and got it.” The ball didn’t hit the turf again until it was in the right side of the net. It was the first goal of Trent’s Free State career. “I was a little surprised, because the angle wasn’t the best angle,” Smith said. “But (Alex) is a beast.” Junior A.J. Ware added a goal in the 21st minute off a feed from Trent before Free State expanded its lead in the second half. Smith contributed his second assist in the 45th minute, sending a cross to Caleb Francis, who knocked it in to make it 3-0. “We have a couple of players now that can really find targets, be it short or long, and he’s one of the better ones that we have right now,” Barah said of Smith.

It’s go time: Prep football kicks off tonight Free State takes to road for opener with familiar Ravens By Benton Smith firstname.lastname@example.org
As thrilling as it is to start the season, Week 1 has the power to make some football coaches lose sleep for other reasons. “You’re always concerned with whoever you open with,” Free State High coach Bob Lisher said, “because there’s a lot of unknowns going into that first game.” The Firebirds actually know a few things about tonight’s opponent, Olathe Northwest. While the Ravens lost a killer combina-
tion of skill players, their offensive and defensive linemen have been around. Lisher said FSHS must control the line of scrimmage in its season opener (7 p.m., at College Boulevard Activity Center). “Last year we struggled,” Lisher said of a 20-14 Free State victory over ONW. “We won the game, but we struggled against them up front.” The Firebirds, senior receiver and linebacker Tye Hughes said, need to prove Please see FSHS, page 5B

Visiting SM West has Lions wary of speed, air attack By Benton Smith email@example.com
The way Lawrence High football coach Dirk Wedd sees it, his team has spent its preseason practices cramming for a test. Tonight at 7 on their home field, the Lions will find out if they aced it or bombed it against Shawnee Mission West. The Vikings have athletic receivers with size, Wedd pointed out, and won a couple of seven-on-seven tournaments this past summer. Because SMW is capable of attacking through
the air, Wedd said the Lions must get to the quarterback to help out their corners, 5-foot-10 Erick Mayo and 5-9 Will Thompson. “They’ll be giving up, five, six, seven inches to those guys,” the coach said. West’s passing game isn’t the end of Wedd’s concerns, either. “Their speed scares me to death,” he said. “If we don’t control their little running back (senior Brett Sterbach), he could have 200 yards on us.” Please see LHS, page 5B

No. 9 South Carolina survives scare NASHVILLE, TENN. (AP) — No. 9 South Carolina and coach Steve Spurrier got a big scare to open the season. Marcus Lattimore and Connor Shaw helped the Gamecocks grind their way past plucky Vanderbilt.

Jaguars 24, Falcons 14 JACKSONVILLE, FLA. — Kevin Elliott had a 77-yard touchdown reception, likely solidifying his spot on the regular-season roster, and Jacksonville won on Thursday night. The teams took vastly different approaches to the game. The Jaguars played their offensive starters into the second quarter; the Falcons played just two regulars: linebacker Akeem Dent and defensive tackle Peria Jerry. Eagles 28, Jets 10 PHILADELPHIA — Greg McElroy became the first quarterback to lead New York into the end zone this preseason in a loss to Philadelphia. Mark Sanchez, Tim Tebow and most of the Jets starters didn’t play in this battle between backups and guys fighting for roster spots. Michael Vick and all of Philadelphia’s starters watched from the sideline. Titans 10, Saints 6 NASHVILLE, TENN. — New Orleans rested all starters in a loss to Tennessee. The Saints now prepare to return home to storm-ravaged Louisiana and put a scandal-ridden offseason behind them. Steelers 17, Panthers 16 PITTSBURGH — Charlie Batch completed 11 of 14 passes for 102 yards and a touchdown to bolster his hopes of playing a 15th NFL season, and Pittsburgh beat Carolina. Batch hit Emmanuel Sanders for a 37-yard play on Pittsburgh’s first drive and later found Will Johnson for a 27yard gain to set up a field goal as the Steelers (3-1) won a battle of the backups against the Panthers (2-2). Rams 31, Ravens 17 ST. LOUIS — Sam Bradford threw three touchdown passes in 11⁄2 quarters, giving St. Louis a win over Baltimore. Rams coach Jeff Fisher, taking over a franchise that has totaled 15 wins in the past five seasons, used virtually all of his starters until the score was 21-0 on a 9-yard catch by Mike Hoomanawanui with 6:59 to go in the half. Bradford threw five touchdown passes in the preseason, all of them at home for the Rams (2-2). Lions 38, Bills 32 DETROIT — Matthew Stafford threw a 24-yard touchdown pass to Calvin Johnson, and Detroit went on to beat Buffalo. Stafford and Johnson went to the sideline healthy after their only drive to make the Lions happy that their dynamic duo avoided injuries in the fourth and final preseason game. Texans 28, Vikings 24 HOUSTON — Trindon Holliday had his third kick return for a touchdown of the preseason, and Justin Forsett rushed for 114 yards and two more scores in Houston’s victory over Minnesota. Colts 20, Bengals 16 INDIANAPOLIS — Chandler Harnish threw a 42-yard touchdown pass to tight end Dominique Jones, leading Indianapolis over Cincinnati. Bears 28, Browns 20 CLEVELAND — Quarterback Colt McCoy did little to solidify winning Cleveland’s backup job — or impress any other NFL team — and Chicago’s Josh McCown threw two touchdown passes in the first half.

NEW YORK — Andy Roddick is ready to walk away from tennis whenever his U.S. Open ends. The 2003 U.S. Open champion and former No. 1-ranked player surprisingly announced his plans to retire at a news conference at Flushing Meadows on Thursday, his 30th birthday. “I’ll make this short and sweet: I’ve decided that this is going to be my last tournament,” said Roddick, wearing a black T-shirt and baseball cap with his clothing sponsor’s logos. “I just feel like it’s time. I don’t know that I’m healthy enough or committed enough to go another year,” he said. “I’ve always wanted to, in a perfect world, finish at this event.” The 20th-seeded Roddick is scheduled to play 19-year-old Bernard Tomic of Australia in the second round tonight at Arthur Ashe Stadium. “I think I wanted an opportunity to say goodbye to people, as well. I don’t know how tomorrow’s going to go, and I hope it goes well, and I’m sticking around,” Roddick said. He was, by turns, in reflective and joking moods while speaking to reporters about his decision. “If I do run into some emotions tomorrow or in four days, I don’t want people to think I’m a little unstable. Or more unstable,” Roddick said with a chuckle. “So that’s why I came to this decision.”
Tsonga falls at U.S. Open NEW YORK — After three days of the top players not only winning but winning decisively at the U.S. Open, fifth-seeded Jo-Wilfried Tsonga was defeated by Martin Klizan of Slovakia in the second round. The 52nd-ranked Klizan won, 6-4, 1-6, 6-1, 6-3, on Thursday. Before Tsonga’s loss, top-five seeds on the men’s and women’s sides had played 14 matches — and won all 14 in straight sets. Tsonga was the runner-up at the 2008 Australian Open and a semifinalist at Wimbledon this year. He had reached at least the third round in 18 straight Grand Slam trips. American Mardy Fish rallied to beat Nikolay Davydenko, 4-6, 6-7 (4), 6-2, 6-1, 6-2, the 10th
time in this tournament a man has won after losing the first two sets — already an Open record. The 30-year-old Fish, seeded 23rd, missed two months this season because of an accelerated heartbeat but showed few signs of fatigue in playing nearly 31⁄2 hours.

Armstrong accused in book AUSTIN, TEXAS — Tyler Hamilton says Lance Armstrong gave him an illegal blood booster at his house before the 1999 Tour de France, and the two teammates compared notes on using performance-enhancing drugs as far back as 1998. Hamilton makes the allegations in his book, “The Secret Race. Inside the Hidden World of the Tour de France, Doping, Cover-ups and Winning at All Costs,” set to be published Sept. 5. The Associated Press purchased a copy Thursday. Hamilton and Armstrong rode together on the U.S. Postal Service team.
Union approves IR rule change NEW YORK — The players’ union has approved a rule change that will allow one designated player to return from injured reserve and play this season. The NFL Players Association also agreed to move the league’s trading deadline back two weeks to after games in Week 8. NFL owners voted for both changes in May. But the union had to sign off on them and did so Thursday, six days before the regular season kicks off.

Royals complete sweep The Associated Press
American League Royals 2, Tigers 1 KANSAS CITY, MO. — Jeremy Guthrie pitched effectively into the eighth inning, and Alex Gordon homered to lead Kansas City over Detroit, 2-1, on Thursday night for a three-game sweep. Prince Fielder had three hits for the slumping Tigers, who remained three games behind the firstplace Chicago White Sox in the AL Central. The teams begin an important three-game series Friday night in Detroit. Royals rookie Kelvin Herrera worked around a walk and a single in the ninth to earn his first career save, coaxing slugger Miguel Cabrera to ground into a game-ending double play. Guthrie (3-3), who did not give up a hit to the White Sox until the eighth inning on Aug. 19 in his previous Kauffman Stadium start, held Detroit to one run on 10 hits — nine of them singles. He walked none and struck out three. Guthrie has made eight starts for the Royals since they acquired him in a July 20 trade with Colorado for left-hander Jonathan Sanchez. He is 6-12 overall. Gordon hit his 10th homer leading off the sixth and extended his hitting streak to eight games. The Royals loaded the bases with none out in the fifth, but converted that into just one run. Mike Moustakas doubled to start the inning and Jeff Francoeur singled on the 10th pitch to snap an 0-for-19 streak. After Eric Hosmer walked to load the bases, Johnny Giavotella’s groundout to shortstop Jhonny Peralta scored Moustakas. Rick Porcello (9-10) lost his fourth straight start, giving up two runs and eight hits in five-plus innings. He struck out four and walked two. The Tigers snapped a 17-inning scoreless drought with a run in the eighth when one-out singles by Fielder and Delmon Young chased Guthrie. After reliever Tim Collins struck out pinch-hitter Jeff Baker on three pitches, Peralta delivered a runscoring single. Detroit

they are a better team than they were a year ago. “Hopefully we can show them that we have a really strong defense and that we play really hard every play, and we don’t really take any plays off,” Hughes said. With eight of their 11 defenders having played significant snaps last season, senior lineman Riley Buller said the Firebirds hope to show outsiders something else about this year’s team. “I think they’re gonna notice we’re quite a bit bigger, more experienced than last year,” Buller said. And with so much unknown about this year’s version of the Ravens, Buller added, Free State can’t be overly concerned about that.

The Lions, of course, have heard all of this from the coaching staff. Senior receiver Drake Hofer said the Lions know their season opener won’t be easy, but they feel they have some strengths of their own, particularly in their senior backfield, with quarterback Brad Strauss and running back Tyrone Jenkins. “Tyrone’s been doing real well,” Hofer said of practices, “so I think he’ll have a big day.” Two-way senior lineman Kharon Brown said LHS should be ready for the opener. “I think our skill positions have a little bit more experience overall,” Brown said. “Our line … we’ve really been working on improving,”

The FSHS defense as a unit, Lisher said, will be challenged by the ONW offense, which likes to spread the ball around the field. “In the first game, that’s a tough situation to go into,” Lisher said, “but we like to spread it out, too, so it’s not something our guys haven’t seen.” The Ravens attack the perimeter, the coach added, not only by throwing the ball, but also by running off the edges. “If we can shut those things down, we’re gonna have an opportunity for success,” Lisher said. “If we struggle with those, it’s gonna be a long night.” Considering tonight marks the beginning of the end of their careers, Buller said the seniors plan to make the most of their remaining Friday nights. “We’re really excited,” he said, “especially after three weeks of knocking the crap out of each other.”
“They’re gonna have a lot of energy coming in,” the lineman said. Most of Lawrence’s Oline doesn’t have Brown’s experience, which concerns Wedd. Still, the coach thinks his team’s crop of three-year starters should be able to settle down the new linemen and get everyone on the same page. Hofer said those seniors who have been playing since they were sophomores are eager to begin their senior campaign, which they hope will include a lengthy postseason run. “We feel like we’ve got a lot of hype to live up to, a lot of pressure on our shoulders,” Hofer said, “but we’re ready to go out there and actually play a game.” The anticipation, Brown added, has been killing him. “It’s pretty bad,” he said. “This has been a really slow week.”

“He’s worked really hard.” Ware added his second goal off a feed from freshman Will Laufer in the 65th minute. Chaska Rocha assisted Briceson Junge in the 71st minute, while Kyle Freese added Free State’s final goal one minute later. “I thought we possessed really well,” Trent said. “We’re trying to focus on being a possession team first and then working off that. We’re just putting everything together at this point.” Bonner Springs’ best chance to score came in the 44th minute, when a deflected shot by junior Robbie Glenn ricocheted to a few feet in front of the goal line before getting cleared by a Free State defender. Senior goalkeeper Luke Lesslie posted the shutout for the Firebirds. “Everything we’ve been working on in practice has been coming together pretty quick,” Trent said. “I feel like we’re definitely headed in the right direction.”

After a loss to Louisburg, Baldwin recovered to avenge its prior defeat to De Soto, winning 2-1 (25-17, 18-25, 25-21) behind the leadership of players like Katie Pattrick and Morgan Lober. The Bulldogs were 4-5 after Tuesday’s 1-2 showing in Bonner Springs against the Braves, BasehorLinwood and Eudora.

Harrell, Packers hammer Chiefs, 24-3 GREEN BAY, WIS. (AP) — Graham Harrell finally showed why the Green Bay Packers believed he could be Aaron Rodgers’ primary backup. Brushing off a shaky preseason, Harrell drove the offense for touchdowns on all three of his possessions and the Packers beat the Kansas City Chiefs, 24-3, Thursday night. Harrell completed 13 of 15 passes for 223 yards with two touchdowns in both teams’ final preseason tuneup. “It was just doing what we’ve done all year, just more consistently,” Harrell said. “When things are going well, I think all of the guys start to feel it — you get some momentum, you get more emotion — and I thought the tempo was up just a little bit. When things are going well, you kind of start rolling.” Harrell’s play has been scrutinized by fans and the media, and Packers coach Mike McCarthy said han-

KANSAS CITY’S EDGAR JONES (71) PRESSURES GREEN BAY QUARTERBACK GRAHAM HARRELL during the second half. The Packers routed the Chiefs, 24-3, on Thursday in Green Bay, Wis. dling that was part of his maturation process. “We talk about it all the time: It’s nice when people say nice things about you and it’s not so nice when they don’t,” McCarthy
said. “And it’s one extreme to the other, particularly at that position. That’s part of the deal. I think he handled it very well.” But with the final round of roster decisions looming
Friday, McCarthy stopped short of making a definitive declaration when asked if he was comfortable going into the season with Harrell as the backup. “I think he definitely
grew through the preseason, topped it off with an excellent performance tonight,” McCarthy said. “But we’re not going to make any roster selections here tonight.” Second-year running back Alex Green had touchdowns rushing and receiving, and Jarrett Boykin caught a touchdown for the Packers. Rookie running back Nate Eachus had 21 carries for 99 yards and the Chiefs rushed for 247 yards. “It was effective, I thought,” coach Romeo Crennel said of the Chiefs’ running game. “I wanted to reinforce what happened in practice. It was successful in the game, so that was good.” Peyton Hillis had 46 yards on six carries, and said the line showed improvement from last week. “It was a great job up front,” Hillis said. “That’s where we found the holes. I think as far as coming out and trying to work the running game and try to get that accomplished, I believe we did that.”

Dear Annie: We are three daughters who need help. Our parents’ home seems unhappy and full of bitterness. Mom and Dad have been married for 59 years, but Mom doesn’t seem to enjoy life. Dad is not perfect, but we really don’t know their past personal stories and relationship. They seem to have led separate lives: Mom at home with six kids to raise, and Dad working long hours at his business. Since Dad’s retirement, they have settled into a routine of doctor appointments and staying home. Dad no longer wants to do anything, because Mom is constantly telling him that he doesn’t do things correctly. Dad has no interest in going places due to his health issues, and Mom doesn’t want him driving much or staying home alone. The constant nagging has created an unhealthy environment. It is difficult to visit because we don’t like to see and hear

them like this. Counseling is not an option, as Mom seems overly concerned with what others know about her or will think of her. Dad doesn’t seem to be concerned about anything. Any suggestions? — The Girls Dear Girls: When couples retire, they can fall into the trap of doing nothing and getting on each other’s nerves. Mom resents Dad invading her domestic domain, and Dad is depressed because his identity was tied up in his job. And if they have
YouTube offers first scripted series The evolution of television and soap operas continues. The old daytime serials may have gone the way of “Guiding Light,” but they’re finding new places to attract viewers, particularly younger ones. Nickelodeon has experimented with nightly soaps, including the supernaturally inclined “House of Anubis” and the music-business melodrama “Hollywood Heights.” Beginning tonight, YouTube launches its first scripted series, “Runaways,” available on the website’s “AwesomenessTV” channel. It’s a tale of murder and mystery at a posh prep school. The prettiest and most popular couple has gone missing on the very day that another student was found murdered. Are they also victims? Will they be implicated in the crime? Are they merely on the lam for romantic reasons? YouTube will make another 35-minute episode of “Runaways” available every day over the next seven days. The series features the kind of performances you would expect from model-perfect teens all decked out in prep school suits and ties. It claims to be “Pretty Little Liars” meets “Gossip Girl,” but it reminds me of every other show that’s been on the WB and CW since “Dawson’s Creek” debuted in 1998, roughly the same time when most of the intended audience for “Runaways” was born. ‘‘Runaways” was created by Brian Robbins and Joe Davola, whose credits include “Smallville “and “One Tree Hill.” It’s clearly a television show for people who no longer watch television. At least on television.
Fans of more traditional teen tantrums can return to “Mean Girls” (6 p.m. and 8 p.m., ABC Family). “Girls” features an engaging performance from Lindsay Lohan that reminds us of what she was capable of before getting lost in a parallel tabloid dimension.
Tonight’s other highlights
U.S. Open Tennis continues (6 p.m., ESPN 2).
A male would-be singer has a Cinder-fella story come true in the 2012 musical “Rags” (7 p.m., Nickelodeon).
“Dark Secrets of the Lusitania” (8 p.m., National Geographic) recalls the sinking of the passenger liner by a German submarine in 1915.
Kane finds it hard to control his feelings for his new aide on “Boss” (8 p.m., Starz).
“Deadly Women” (9 p.m., ID) profiles killers inspired by greed.
Baseball Hall-of-Famer Frank Robinson is 77. Violinist Itzhak Perlman is 67. Singer Van Morrison is 67. Actor Richard Gere is 63. Olympic gold medal track and field athlete Edwin Moses is 57. Rock musician Gina Schock (The Go-Go’s) is 55. Singer Tony DeFranco (The DeFranco Family) is 53. Singer-composer Deborah Gibson is 42. Golfer Padraig Harrington is 41. Actor Chris Tucker is 40.
health issues, it can exacerbate the problem because getting out of the house can be problematic or exhausting. We recommend you find ways to get them out of the house, together or separately. Take them out for dinner. Invite Mom to a play. Encourage Dad to attend a ballgame with you. Look into senior programs in their area, and perhaps offer to go with them until they become interested enough to go on their own and, hopefully, make friends. Please don’t give up on them. They need you. Dear Annie: I’m 13 and live with my mom. She always overreacts when my room is not absolutely spotless, which leaves me wondering whether she has OCD. She doesn’t seem to care that the rest of the house is a mess. She seems to magnify the messiness of my room only. When I confront her
JACQUELINE BIGAR’S STARS
For Friday, Aug. 31: This year you have a frenetic element in your life. Your classic organizational skills might be overwhelmed by everything that could fall on your plate. If you are single, your attractiveness to the opposite sex cannot be denied. If you are attached, the two of you sometimes feel out of sync. The Stars Show the Kind of Day You’ll Have: 5-Dynamic; 4-Positive; 3-Average; 2-So-so; 1-Difficult Aries (March 21-April 19) Today’s Full Moon throws you into a tizzy of sorts. You might choose not to share what is going on. Tonight: Hang out your “Not Available” sign. Taurus (April 20-May 20) You could encounter strong reactions from others. As you witness a lot of changes, you’ll feel at peace. Tonight: Where people are. Gemini (May 21-June 20) You want to help people, but in order for that to happen, they need to listen to your ideas. You are not in the mood to debate. Tonight: To the wee hours. Cancer (June 21-July 22) Reach out for someone and understand where he or she is coming from. If this person becomes difficult, do not push. Tonight: Hang out. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) Today’s Full Moon is far more challenging than you realize, especially concerning others and anything involving finances. Be direct in your dealings. Tonight: Dance away your problems. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Your energy could determine the near future in certain
relationships. The good news is that generally you’ll err on the side of caution. Tonight: Out with that favorite person. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) You might be struggling with all the demands of your daily life and the added high-voltage energy of today’s Full Moon. Know that this, too, will pass. Tonight: Easy works. Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) You enjoy living to the utmost and seeing what will happen. The Full Moon emphasizes this gregarious quality and your love for life. Tonight: Live it up. Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) You could see this moment as critical. Understand that the Full Moon is adding to the sense that this moment might be more important than it really is. Tonight: Make a favorite meal. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) You know what you want to do, and the Full Moon cheers you on. Do what you feel is needed, but save part of the day for you. Tonight: At a favorite spot. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) Observe what is happening with others. You do not need to play into the commotion; you actually might want to distance yourself. Tonight: Join friends. Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) The Full Moon in your sign throws certain opportunities and people in your direction. Even something that might feel problematic could work out fine. Tonight: Zero in on what you want. — The astrological forecast should be read for entertainment only.

about this, she gets mad and sends me to my room. I think she wants me to be holed up in there so I’ll see how messy it is. But I don’t. Does she have OCD? How would I know? Help me. — My Room Is Clean Dear Room: If your mom is only concerned with the mess in your room, it’s probably not OCD. It’s more likely your room is a little messy. Mom sounds stressed. If you find yourself arguing with her a lot, please consider that the two of you may be pushing each other’s buttons more than you intend. Try talking to her when you are both calm. Explain that you don’t want to fight. Ask how to make things better. If it doesn’t help, please discuss it with your school counselor.
