CHARLOTTE, N.C. — In an impassioned speech that rocked the Democratic National Convention, former President Bill Clinton proclaimed Wednesday night,

“I know we’re coming back” from the worst economic mess in generations and appealed to hard-pressed Americans to stick with Barack Obama for a second term in the White House. Obama strode onstage as Clinton wound up his

speech, and the former president bowed. Obama pulled him into an embrace as thousands of delegates jammed into the convention hall roared their approval. Conceding that many struggling in a slow-recovery economy don’t yet feel

improvement, Clinton said circumstances are indeed getting better, “and if you’ll renew the president’s contract you will feel it.” To the cheers of thousands of Democrats packed Please see CLINTON, page 7A

SEVEN TIBETAN MONKS FROM INDIA are at KU’s Spencer Museum of Art painstakingly constructing a sand painting known as the Interfaith World Peace mandala. It has symbols signifying the world’s 12 major religions, the four elements and the four seasons. The mandala will be dismantled Friday, and the sand will be deposited in Potter Lake.


Monks create, then dismantle, sand painting By Sara Shepherd

Yes, Tenzin Dekyong confirms, creating sand paintings is as difficult as it looks. Monks’ necks and backs hurt from hunching over their work, faces just inches from the sand. And, yes, sometimes they make mistakes, which must be mended just as carefully — if not more so — as the purposeful details are created. On Tuesday, De-

kyong and six other Buddhist monks from the Drepung Gomang Monastery in India began a four-day process of creating a 5-by-5-foot mandala out of millions of grains of colored sand, painstakingly funneled into intricate designs on a platform in the Spencer Museum of Art Central Court, 1301 Miss. On Friday, they will sweep up their entire project and pour the

Panel OKs raises for public employees TOPEKA (AP) — A committee overseeing state employee pay is recommending about $11.4 million in raises for underpaid state workers, with corrections officers at Kansas prisons among the groups benefiting most. The Joint Committee on Employee Pay Plan Oversight on Tuesday recommended 7.5 per-

The funds were appropriated during the 2012 legislative session. Corrections Secretary Ray Roberts told the

He wrote of an “unquenchable curiosity” and owned a long list of academic accomplishments to back up his stated lifelong goal “to increase the efficiency of how human beings learn and remember.” But before Kansas University could interview James E. Holmes for a possible slot in the neuroscience graduate program, Holmes withdrew his application. That was in February 2011. A little over a year later — this past July — police say Holmes, 24, entered a movie theater in Aurora, Colo., during a midnight showing of “The Dark Knight Rises” and started shooting, killing 12 people and injuring 58 others. In 2011, Holmes, carrying a 3.94 grade-point average from the University of California, Riverside, applied to six graduate schools before being accepted to the neuroscience program at the University of Colorado, Denver.

County supports cheaper towing charges

Casting a wide net

61 violations found at restaurants in August In August, the Kansas Department of Agriculture’s food inspectors conducted 37 inspections of Lawrence restaurants, finding 61 critical violations, which are violations of the food code that could cause a foodborne illness. As part of a continuing Journal-World project, we’re collecting data from all Lawrence restaurant inspections and entering it into a searchable database and online map, which can be found at LJWorld. com/restaurantinspections/.

The Douglas County Commission on Wednesday unanimously agreed in principle to a resolution limiting how much towing companies on the county’s nonpreference towing list can charge consumers. “I’m convinced we came up with a good product that’s fair,” said Douglas County Commissioner Jim Flory. Flory headed an advisory panel formed in April to study towing charges after local residents, towing company owners and COUNTY the Doug- COMMISSION las County district attorney urged the commission to do something about the over-the-top prices some tow companies are charging motorists. The resolution outlines maximum charges for basic towing services, such as a $150 towing rate for smaller vehicles and $250 for larger trucks. Towing companies would also be limited

BRIEFLY Attempted robbery reported at Dillons Lawrence police say a man attempted to rob the Dillons at 1015 W. 23rd St. early Wednesday morning. The man, with his face covered by a hooded jacket, demanded money from a clerk in the store about 4:30 a.m. The clerk declined the request and told the man to leave, which he did, said Lawrence Police Sgt. Trent McKinley. No weapon was displayed during the incident. The suspect was described as a white man, in his 20s or 30s, about 6 feet tall with a thin build, wearing a black jacket and blue jeans.

100 chickens stolen in unusual livestock theft By Shaun Hittle

Authorities are investigating a cut fence and 100 missing chickens from a property in Ottawa. “We have no idea what happened,” said Franklin County Sheriff Jeffry Curry. “But they’re missing.” The missing birds, along with a missing four-wheel ATV and $1,000 mower were reported to police Saturday, Curry said. The

owner, from Leawood, doesn’t live on the property, which is on the southeast edge of Ottawa, so it’s not exactly clear when the theft occurred. A padlock to the property was undamaged, and it appeared the thieves gained access by cutting the fence. Curry said it’s not unusual to field reports of livestock thefts in the county, but it’s gen-

erally for theft of larger animals, such as cattle or horses. Could the birds have sneaked off through the empty fence? Curry said that’s unlikely, as they haven’t had any reports of loose fowl in the area. Curry said they’ll follow up on the case like any other property theft. “We absolutely take it seriously,” Curry said. “For the victim,

it’s a pretty big deal.” Curry estimates the chickens’ value at $600. Police are hoping that a tip helps crack the case, but there are “no leads as of yet,” Curry said. Because chickens aren’t tagged or branded, the sheriff says he’s not sure how they’ll be identified. — Reporter Shaun Hittle can be reached at 832-7173.

Band Day to draw about 3,000 student musicians ————

High schoolers to perform at Saturday’s KU football game By Sara Shepherd

Roughly 3,000 high school students in about 30 different marching bands taking to a football field and playing music simultaneously is a sight — and sound — to behold. When it comes to pulling off Kansas University’s annual Band Day feat, keeping it simple is the key. A few KU fight songs and the popular show tune “Seventy Six Trombones” from “The Music Man” will have been learned and practiced ahead of time, so when students arrive for the 65th annual Band Day on Saturday, they’ll need just an hour of rehearsal to solidify their field position. “We don’t do any movement,” said KU assistant band director Sharon Toulouse, who is in charge of this year’s Band Day. “It’s pretty much just get on, play and get off.” High school marching bands from across Kansas, plus a few from Missouri, will team up to perform with KU’s band during halftime of the KU-Rice

BAND DAY A parade through downtown Lawrence will kick off Kansas University’s 65th annual Band Day on Saturday. Beginning at 9 a.m., high school marching bands from across the region will march down Massachusetts Street from Seventh to 11th streets. Bands also will perform during halftime of the KU football game against Rice University, which kicks off at 2:30 p.m. in Memorial Stadium. football game. The bands also start the day with a parade down Massachusetts Street. Perry-Lecompton High School band director Mike Maloun has been bringing students to KU Band Day for most of the past 20 years. His students always want to come back, he said. The event is fun for them because “it’s just all about the band.” While he’s taken bands to a couple of Kansas State University band days, Maloun said his school usually sticks with KU. After

all, it’s in a neighboring town. “We’re close to Lawrence, and our parents enjoy seeing us locally there,” he said, also disclosing that he attended KU. Toulouse said Band Day gives students a chance to get on campus and be exposed to KU’s music program and traditions. “It’s a great opportunity for high school bands to experience what it’s like to be on a college-level football field, and to play next to a college-level band,” she said. “It’s a great recruiting tool.” While “Seventy Six Trombones” doesn’t actually require 76 trombones (KU’s band, incidentally, has 28), the jubilant “Music Man” song fits the goal of keeping things simple. “It’s just a great, fun arrangement that’s wellknown by many people,” Toulouse said. “It’s easy to put together with the thousands of high school students that will be participating.” — Features reporter Sara Shepherd can be reached at 832-7187.

Emergency communications upgrades moving ahead By Alex Garrison

A roughly $6.6 million project to replace the emergency communications system in Douglas County will go forward, but a proposal to revamp the communications’ and emergency management department’s office space will not, at least for now. After nearly two hours of discussion on Wednesday, the Douglas County Commission approved COUNTY the pro- COMMISSION posed overhaul of the radio system. The money for it will come from issuing bonds and an interlocal agreement with the city of Lawrence. Scott Ruf, emergency communications director, asked for more than $400,000 in addition for renovation of the offices the two county depart-


to a $3-per-towing-mile charge, and $30 per day for vehicle storage. Flory said the panel received input from several towing companies and their attorneys, and looked at similar policies in several Kansas cities that set maximum rates for nonpreference tow charges. No one from the public spoke about the resolution at Wednesday’s meeting. At an accident scene, motorists can choose whatever towing company they want to haul their vehicle. But if the owner doesn’t have a preference, the county’s emergency dispatch will choose a company based on a rotating list of about 10 area towing companies. The Lawrence JournalWorld reported earlier this year about one Douglas County resident who paid $1,110 for a minivan to be towed six miles after an accident. Under the proposed resolution, such service could have cost as little as $200. Under the resolution, tow companies on the nonpreference towing list

ments work in. The commission eventually agreed that, though the time for improvement would be during the radio revamp, more study was needed. Ruf will meet further with assistant county administrator Sarah Plinsky and others with the aim of readdressing the commission within 30 to 60 days. Commissioners Jim Flory and Nancy Thellman expressed concern over paying for this portion of the project given other upcoming capital improvement projects. Ruf did get approval of $375,000 to buy a new generator for the Judicial and Law Enforcement Center, 111 E. 11th St. In other County Commission news from Wednesday:

The commissioners approved extending the burn ban that’s been in effect since July 25 for two more weeks. Commissioner Mike Gaughan can cancel it early or allow it to run until Sept. 19. At Flory’s proposal, the will need to sign a contract agreeing to the pricing guidelines. Commissioners proposed a Nov. 1 start date for the policy. A final resolution is expected to be presented, and approved, at the Sept. 19 County Commission meeting. — Reporter Shaun Hittle can be reached at 832-7173. Follow him at

commission also added language to the county code preventing fireworks at all times during a burn ban — in a technical loophole, they were previously only banned near July 4 under a burn ban.

By proclamation, Sept. 7 will be “International Literacy Day” and the week of Sept. 16 to Sept. 22 “Fight Hunger Week.”

The EMS station in Baldwin City will get a structural boost after a proposal passed to spend between $10,000 and $20,000 to repair a heavily damaged outside wall. The next County Commission meeting will be 4 p.m. Sept. 19 on the second floor of the Douglas County Courthouse, 1100 Mass. — Reporter Alex Garrison can be reached at 832-6314.

More common are worms making their way to Kansas from other areas of the U.S., as well as Europe, he said.

Praeger urges state work on health reform —————

Governor wants to wait until after election before taking action By Scott Rothschild

TOPEKA — Health care officials on Wednesday discussed what should be included in insurance policies under the Affordable Care Act. But, as in most efforts related to federal health reform in Kansas, the proposal is in limbo. “All of this really hinges on the election on Nov. 6,” said Kansas Insurance Commissioner Sandy Praeger, one of the few Repub- Praeger licans in the country who has voiced support of the ACA. President Barack Obama signed the ACA into law, and Republican presidential challenger Mitt Romney has vowed to repeal it. Gov. Sam Brownback, a Republican, voted against the ACA while a U.S. senator, and is a frequent critic of the legislation. Last year, he sent back a $31.5 million federal grant intended to

Agency finds raise in Kan. job vacancies TOPEKA (AP) — Job vacancies increased in Kansas during the second quarter of 2012 compared to a year earlier, according to a report Wednesday from the state Department of Labor. The report found an estimated 36,000 vacancies from April to June, a 17.3 percent increase over the second quarter of 2011. During the quarter, Kansas averaged 88,739 unemployed workers. That meant about 2.5 workers for every job vacancy, which was an improvement from 2011, when there were 3.2 unemployed workers for every job opening. By comparison, there were 1.3 unemployed persons for every job vacancy for the second quarter of 2008. Labor Secretary Karin Brownlee said the survey shows positive movement for unemployed workers who are looking for work. “Fortunately, more jobs are available now than a year ago to meet the needs of the unemployed,” Brownlee said. The Kansas unemployment rate was a seasonally adjusted 6.3 percent in July, the most recent figure available. It was 6.1 percent from April to June, while the rate was 6.7 percent in April and May 2011 and 6.8 percent in June 2011. The most vacancies were in the education and health services, followed by leisure and hospitality. Food preparation and serving workers were the two most vacant jobs in the state at the time of the survey. Jennifer Garrett, supervisor of the survey for the Department of Labor, said the survey is a good resource for determining the educational and training needs of workers and the needs of employers. The survey found that 71.4 percent of the job vacancies had no educational requirement or only required a high school diploma. Those needing a bachelor’s or advanced degree were 13.7 percent. The average wage for the vacancies was $11.73 an hour, ranging from $9.29 for those with no education requirements to $29.85 an hour for advanced degrees.

help set up a Kansas health insurance exchange under the law. Now an ACA deadline is approaching that requires health insurance plans offered on the exchange to include a comprehensive package of services, called essential health benefits. States have the opportunity to decide what benefits will be included. Praeger will submit recommendations to Brownback. Although she said he needs to make a decision by Sept. 30, the governor has said he wants to see who wins the presidential race before he takes any further action on ACA requirements. Praeger said not deciding on essential health benefits now could limit Kansas’ options in the future, should the ACA remain law. If Kansas doesn’t pick its plan, she said, then the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services will. Dr. Pam Shaw, a pediatrician and professor at Kansas University Medical Center, said pediatric care had to be included in insurance plans. Because chil-

dren are developing, their health conditions “must be continuously monitored and reassessed,” said Shaw, who was representing the American Academy of Pediatrics. As a parent of an autistic child, Shaw said having that coverage under her state plan has been essential. She was joined by other advocate groups, such as Kansas Action for Children. But Eric Stafford, a lobbyist with the Kansas Chamber of Commerce, said he was concerned that too many mandates could increase the cost of insurance and cause some business owners to stop offering coverage to their employees. He said many businesses were already “at the tipping point.” Praeger said, “We want good coverage, but we want these products to be affordable. So, it’s balancing the coverage versus the cost.” She said the overall goal is to reduce health care costs by providing the kind of services that can avoid more costly medical care later on.

Anna Lambertson, the head of the Kansas Health Consumer Coalition, said the essential health benefits will help the 15 percent of Kansans who are uninsured, and those who are underinsured, by making sure there is adequate coverage. “We can really close that gap,” she said. Praeger said the Insurance Department will accept public comment on the issue through 5 p.m. Sept. 12 by email to Linda. Sheppard@ksinsurance. org. Meanwhile, the Catholic Church submitted testimony urging the state not to require coverage for contraceptive services. The ACA requires employer provided health insurance to provide contraception coverage. Obama has instituted a policy that says religious institutions such as Catholic universities don’t have to provide contraception, but the health insurance companies they use must offer it directly to employees.

Santa Fe Trail Festival next weekend To celebrate the history of the area, Overbrook Pride is sponsoring the sixth annual Santa Fe Trail Festival on Sept. 15 at the Overbrook Fairgrounds. The festival will begin with a 5K race, a one-mile fun run, biscuits and gravy and the start of the chili cook-off at 8 a.m. Other events scheduled throughout the day include Santa Fe Trail history lessons, bingo, a petting zoo, horse-drawn

wagon rides, live entertainment and historical demonstrations. Demonstrations will include spinning, rope-making and corn-grinding. Musical performances will be at the festival as well. Dan Rukes is scheduled for 1 p.m., and The Tone Brothers will perform in the Saloon at 6:30 p.m. For more information on the festival, contact Pat Martin at 785-665-7754.

How weak is U.S. job market? Depends on your numbers By Christopher S. Rugaber Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Is the U.S. job market dismal as Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney says? Or is it steadily improving as President Barack Obama contends? Not to dodge the question, but both men are correct. It’s all about how you slice the data. Romney and his Republican allies like to point to the unemployment rate. It’s stuck at 8.3 percent, compared with 7.8 percent when Obama took office. Most economists say “normal” unemployment is 6 percent or less. Obama naturally prefers to stress the more than 4 million jobs the economy has added in the past 2 and a half years. Neither figure fully illustrates the state of the job market — the pivotal issue for many voters in the final stretch of the election season. You have to consider other numbers, too. Here’s an overview of key numbers and the varying stories they tell:

Unemployment Romney and other Republicans have stressed that the unemployment rate has topped 8 percent for 42 straight months. That’s the longest such stretch since government record-keeping began in 1948. For Obama, this is probably the most threatening statistic. No president since World War II has won re-election with such a high rate. President Gerald Ford lost to Jimmy Carter in 1976, when the rate was 7.8 percent. President Carter was unseated by Ronald Reagan in 1980, when it was 7.5 percent. Reagan managed to win a landslide re-election in 1984, when unemployment was a still-lofty 7.2 percent.

But the rate had tumbled from a peak of 10.8 percent in December 1982. A similar trend could benefit Obama. True, unemployment is historically high. But it’s down from a peak of 10 percent in October 2009.

Jobs Obama and other Democrats point out that the private sector has added jobs for 29 straight months. And over that time, 4.5 million jobs have been added. By contrast, over roughly the same period after the first year of President George W. Bush’s first term, only 1.3 million private-sector jobs were added. But the positive trend for Obama depends on a carefully selected time frame. It counts job gains dating from February 2010. It ignores Obama’s first year in office, when employers shed an average of 357,000 jobs a month. And by counting only privatesector jobs, Obama’s claim excludes hundreds of thousands of layoffs by local and state governments. Since Obama took office, the overall economy — including the public sector — has lost 316,000 jobs. Private employers have added only 332,000 jobs. Put all that together, and you’re a long way from 4.5 million. The underemployed Many analysts point out that the unemployment rate would be even higher if it included millions of Americans who have given up looking for work. (The government counts people as unemployed only if they’re looking for a job.) Nearly 12.8 million people were unemployed in July. But Romney and his running mate, Rep. Paul Ryan, prefer to cite a different figure: one that also includes people no longer

looking for a job and people working part time who would prefer full-time work. When you add up those groups, plus the unemployed, you end up with 23.5 million. That produces an “under-employment” rate of 15 percent. The trend is especially stark among younger Americans. An Associated Press analysis earlier this year found that roughly half of college graduates under age 25 are unemployed or underemployed.

Layoffs There’s one clear area of improvement since Obama was inaugurated: Layoffs have plunged. As Obama has often pointed out, more than 800,000 Americans lost their jobs in January 2009, the month he took office. That was the largest onemonth drop in more than 60 years. The pain persisted for months: The economy shed 600,000 or more jobs each month from November 2008 through April 2009. A total of 4.5 million jobs were lost. The number of people seeking unemployment benefits soared. In January 2009, so many people sought unemployment aid that they swamped the phone lines of some state unemployment offices. Some offices’ websites crashed. In the last week of March, 667,000 Americans applied for unemployment benefits, the most in more than 26 years. Since then, layoffs have dwindled. The economy is steadily adding jobs, however modestly. And the number of people seeking unemployment benefits each week is averaging about 370,000. Still, most economists say that in a healthy economy, applications for unemployment aid would fall to roughly 325,000.

into their convention hall, he said of Obama, “I want to nominate a man who is cool on the outside but who burns for America on the inside.” Not long afterward, the delegates formally awarded Obama their nomination to a second term in a post-midnight roll call of the states. Clinton spoke as Obama’s high command worked to control the political fallout from an embarrassing retreat on the party platform, just two months from Election Day in the tight race with Republican challenger Mitt Romney. Under criticism from Romney, the Obama camp abruptly rewrote the day-old document to insert a reference to God and to declare that Jerusalem “is and will remain the capital of Israel.” Some delegates objected loudly, but Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, presiding in the largely-empty hall, ruled them outvoted. White House aides said Obama had personally ordered the changes, but they did not disclose whether he had approved the earlier version. The convention concludes today with Obama’s acceptance speech before a prime- time national TV audience. Aides announced he would speak in the convention hall rather than a nearby 74,000-seat football stadium as originally planned. They cited weather concerns as the reason for the switch in a city that has been hit by heavy rains in recent days. Romney, nominated at his own convention last week, spent his second straight day in Ver-

FORMER PRESIDENT BILL CLINTON SPEAKS to delegates at the Democratic National Convention on Wednesday in Charlotte, N.C. mont preparing for next month’s debates with Obama. Clinton’s speech was deemed so important by Obama’s campaign aides that they delayed the president’s formal nomination to a second term until it was over. The familiar roll call of the states began well after television prime time in the eastern part of the country, and the hall was emptying out rapidly as it dragged on past midnight. Obama’s campaign hoped the former president would prove especially persuasive in an era of sluggish economic growth and 8.3 percent unemployment. Clinton is exceptionally popular 12 years after he left office, particularly among white men, a group among whom Obama polls poorly. The speech was vintage Clinton, overlong for sure, insults delivered with a folksy grin, references to his own time in office and his wife Hillary, all designed to improve Obama’s shaky re-election prospects. The convention hall rocked with delegates’ applause and cheers the former president strode onstage to sounds of “Don’t Stop Thinking About Tomorrow,” his 1992 cam-

paign theme song. He sought to rebut every major criticism Republicans leveled against the president at their own convention last week in Tampa, and said that in fact, since 1961, far more jobs have been created under Democratic presidents than when Republicans sat in the White House, by a margin of 42 million to 24 million. Clinton accused Republicans of proposing “the same old policies that got us into trouble in the first place” and led to a near financial meltdown. Those, he said, include efforts to provide “tax cuts for higher-income Americans, more money for defense than the Pentagon wants and ... deep cuts on programs that help the middle class and poor children.” “As another president once said, ‘There they go again,’” he said, quoting Ronald Reagan, who often uttered the remark as a rebuke to Democrats. There was another reference to Reagan, whom Democrats routinely accused of advocating “trickle down economics” that favored the rich. “ We simply cannot afford to turn the reins of government over to someone who will double down on trickle-down,” Clinton said.

LAWRENCE JOURNAL-WORLD Thursday, September 6, 2012



Positive step State funding approved earlier this year and salary recommendations announced Tuesday are an important recognition of the need to make state employee salaries competitive with those in the private sector.


ven when the budget is tight, state officials in Kansas recognized a real need. On Tuesday, a committee overseeing state employee pay recommended about $11.4 million in raises for underpaid state workers. The recommendation from the Joint Committee on Employee Pay Plan Oversight will result in raises ranging from 5 percent to 12.5 percent for a total of 4,296 state employees. The goal of the increases is to get pay levels for those employees closer to wages in the private sector. Funding for the raises was approved by the Kansas Legislature earlier this year, and the pay increases must get final approval from the State Finance Council. Key among the workers who will benefit are corrections officers who work in Kansas prisons. More than a thousand corrections officers will receive raises of about 7.5 percent under the plan. A 7.5 percent raise is more than most employees in either the public or private sector can expect this year, but the raises were desperately needed to try to lower the turnover rate and raise the level of professionalism among the state’s corrections workforce. The officers haven’t received a pay raise since 2009, according to Corrections Secretary Ray Roberts, and a survey of seven states indicated that only Oklahoma paid its corrections officers less than Kansas. In addition to officers at the state’s correctional facilities, the pay increases also will benefit 161 employees at the Kansas Juvenile Corrections Complex in Topeka, which is operated by the state’s Juvenile Justice Authority. The need for that funding was dramatically illustrated by a state audit report released in July that found the Topeka facility had a turnover rate of 32 percent over the last five years. That circumstance was seen as a key contributing factor to serious security and safety issues at the complex. State officials hope that pay increases will make the jobs more attractive and, therefore, make it easier to hire and maintain qualified staff members. Another expected benefit is a reduction of overtime hours, which would save money and put less stress on staff. There are a couple of important reasons for the state to try to get its salaries closer to those in the private sector. As the state has trimmed its workforce in recent years, employees are being asked to do more, often at the same pay. Changes to the Kansas Public Employees Retirement System also may make the state’s retirement plan less attractive for some new hires. Some state employees say they have been willing to work for salaries less than they could make in the private sector because of promised KPERS benefits, but that may no longer be the case. Even if the state’s goal is a smaller government, it needs to be able to hire good people to perform important state jobs. The pay raises recommended on Tuesday are a step in that direction.

Obama spurs Wilson comparison CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Four years ago, Barack Obama was America’s Rorschach test upon whom voters could project their disparate yearnings. To govern, however, is to choose, and now his choices have clarified him. He is a conviction politician determined to complete the progressive project of emancipating government from the Founders’ constraining premises, a project Woodrow Wilson embarked on 100 Novembers ago. As such, Obama has earned what he now receives, the tribute of a serious intellectual exegesis by a distinguished political philosopher. In “I Am the Change: Barack Obama and the Crisis of Liberalism,” Charles Kesler of Claremont McKenna College rightly says Obama is “playing a long, high-stakes game.” Concerning the stakes, Obama practices prudent reticence, not specifying America’s displeasing features that are fundamental. Shortly before the 2008 election, he said only: “We are five days away from fundamentally transforming” America. Tonight, consider Obama’s acceptance speech in the context that Kesler gives it in the American political tradition. Progress, as progressives understand it, means advancing away from, up from, something. But from what? From the Constitution’s constricting anachronisms. In 1912, Wilson said, “The history of liberty is the history of the limi-

George Will

In 2012, Americans want from government not such flights of fancy but sobriety; not ecstatic evocations of dreamlike tomorrows but a tolerably functioning today…” tation of governmental power.” But as Kesler notes, Wilson never said the future of liberty consisted of such limitation. Instead, he said, “every means ... by which society may be perfected through the instrumentality of government” should be used so that “individual rights can be fitly adjusted and harmonized with public duties.” Rights “adjusted and harmonized” by government necessarily are defined and apportioned by it. Wilson, the first transformative progressive, called this the “New Freedom.” The old kind was the Founders’ kind — government existing to “secure” natural rights (see the Declaration) that pre-exist government. Wilson thought this had become an impediment to progress. The pedigree of

Obama’s thought runs straight to Wilson. And through the second transformative progressive, Franklin Roosevelt, who counseled against the Founders’ sober practicality and fear of government power: “We are beginning to wipe out the line that divides the practical from the ideal” and are making government “an instrument of unimagined power” for social improvement. The only thing we have to fear is fear of a government of unimagined power: “Government is a relation of give and take.” The “rulers” — FDR’s word — take power from the people, who in turn are given “certain rights.” This, says Kesler, is “the First Law of Big Government: the more power we give the government, the more rights it will give us.” It also is the ultimate American radicalism, striking at the roots of the American regime, the doctrine of natural rights. Remember this when next — perhaps tonight — Obama discourses on the radicalism of Paul Ryan. As Kesler says, the logic of progressivism is: “Since our rights are dependent on government, why shouldn’t we be?” This is the real meaning of Obama’s most characteristic rhetorical trope, his incessant warning that Americans should be terrified of being “on your own.” Obama, the fourth transformative progressive, had a chief of staff who said “you

never want a serious crisis to go to waste.” More than a century before that, a man who would become the first such progressive said a crisis is a terrible thing not to create. Crises, said Wilson, are periods of “unusual opportunity” for gaining “a controlling and guiding influence.” So, he said, leaders should maintain a crisis atmosphere “at all times.” Campaigning in 1964, Lyndon Johnson, the third consequential progressive, exclaimed through a bull horn: “I just want to tell you this — we’re in favor of a lot of things and we’re against mighty few.” He learned this progressive vernacular from his patron, FDR, who envisioned “an unlimited civilization capable of infinite progress.” In 2012, Americans want from government not such flights of fancy but sobriety; not ecstatic evocations of dreamlike tomorrows but a tolerably functioning today; not fantasies about a world without scarcities and therefore without choices among our desires and appetites but a mature understanding of the limits to government’s proper scope and actual competence. Tonight’s speech is Obama’s last chance to take a first step toward accommodation with a country increasingly concerned about his unmasked determination to “transform” what the Founders considered “fundamentals.” — George Will is a columnist for Washington Post Writers Group.

Prof adds to teacher bullying response By Robert Harrington

In the Aug. 27 Double Take column published in the Journal-World entitled, “When teachers bully,” Wes Crenshaw and Katie Guyot provided some sage advice on a situation in which a classroom teacher was depicted as bullying her student by yelling at her in front of the class. If this behavior actually happened as described and was the teacher’s usual mode of interaction with this student, this situation would certainly qualify as teacher bullying. Bullying teachers have been defined as those teachers who use their power to punish, manipulate, or disparage a student beyond what other professionals in the field would describe as a reasonable disciplinary procedure. So, persistent yelling, name-calling, public humiliation, regular exclusion from class, applying class rules unfairly, physical punishment, intimidation, threats, refusing to call on a student, using the student as a bad example, sharing personal information about a student and manipulating earned course grades to gain control of a student’s behavior are all potential examples of teacher bullying. While an apology from the teacher described above might help assuage hurt feelings on the part of the student and while a report by the parent to the principal might get the teacher in some hot water, the problem may likely remain

YOUR TURN unsolved as Crenshaw insinuated in his column. In fact, the student-teacher relationship could be soured entirely. Furthermore, moving a student to another class or section may not be an option. Teacher bullying is just as important a problem to solve as student bullying even if it occurs less often. I would like to add some more options to the very good ideas provided so that other Harrington parents might learn something from this example and have a range of response options. First, the underlying cause for this situation is classroom management. Teachers need training and continuing education in classroom management. Classroom management is the main reason why teachers quit the profession. Managing a classroom of up to 30 or more students can be very stressful. This means that school districts must be committed to training their teachers in classroom management and bullying prevention and intervention. Second, only authoritative teachers are successful in the classroom. These are teachers who are flexible, democratic,

fair and most of all respectful in their approach to students. Some classroom managers believe that the only way to manage a class is to get control, not smile for the first few weeks of school and have strict rules with lots of punishment. This approach does not lead to a “classroom learning community” or a sense of “belongingness” wherein students support each other in learning. Third, most schools do not have bullying policies that include teachers. When schools have such inclusive policies it means that they recognize that not only can teachers be bullies but teachers can be bullied, too. Fourth, the best approach a parent can take is to advocate for his or her student and avoid becoming an adversary with the teacher. Mutual respect that includes positive communication is key. Talk with the teacher, seek a solution, support the teacher, find something positive to say about what the teacher is doing, rebuild your relationship. The same ideas work well when teachers apply them to their interactions with parents and their students. Fifth, when it is difficult to know how the bullying situation started a problemsolving conflict resolution approach would be recommended. Avoid blame. Try to find common ground and work toward a resolution that is mutually acceptable. In most cases of bullying there are two sides to the sto-

ry, even when the teacher is involved. Listen and be empathic to the other’s position. Sixth, in my 33 years as a professor in the School of Education at Kansas University, I have found, by far, that most teachers want to treat their students respectfully and fairly. It sounds like this student wanted to treat this teacher with respect in return. Something went wrong. Clear communication, untainted by angry accusations, and focusing on solving the problem most likely would improve the situation. In the end schools need to help students, teachers, parents and administrators understand that anyone can be a bully, a victim or a bystander and that it is the responsibility of everyone to prevent and intervene in cases of bullying by repairing relationships and teaching new and better social skills, and in the case of teachers, better skills in classroom management. Most teachers appreciate learning new skills that lead to personal success, and they want their students to be successful too. — Robert Harrington is a professor in the department of psychology and research in the Kansas University School of Education. He teaches courses in classroom management, as well as a graduate course in bullying prevention and intervention. He is creating an online instructional outreach program for teachers around Kansas who want to learn more about classroom management and bullying.

LAWRENCE JOURNAL-WORLD OThursday, September 6, 2012


Tom Keegan

Safety gets message His wise-guy Jersey delivery might mislead some to believe that Kansas University football coach Charlie Weis is capable of talking without first thinking of the impact of his words, such as when he called Bradley McDougald, “as good a player as we have on the team, maybe the best,” after Saturday’s game. Consider the impact those words had on McDougald before determining whether Weis wanted him to hear them. “It’s definitely an honor, especially coming from coach Weis,” McDougald said after Wednesday’s practice. “Obviously, when something like that is said, a lot of your teammates around you are looking at you.” For what? Leadership. “I tried to tell coaches I wasn’t a vocal leader, but they didn’t want to hear me,” McDougald said. “They told me I’m the safety, and I’m a chirper back there. I have to get the calls in. I have to communicate with different guys, so there is no way I couldn’t be vocal. Then when you have coach giving me compliments the way he did, that kind of adds another inch of leadership to me.” Weis added responsibility to McDougald by saying what he said, and the senior from Dublin, Ohio, will try harder to live up to expectations because Weis called him out as “maybe the best” player on the team. Weis knew he didn’t have to worry about the compliment turning McDougald conceited because that’s not the safety’s personality. McDougald knows where the praise starts for his two interceptions. “Most definitely the credit belongs to what’s going on up front,” McDougald said. “The interception I caught on the sidelines, Keba (Agostinho) forces pressure up the middle, makes the quarterback roll out to my direction. The second one, the quarterback has to get the ball out fast. It was his first throw since he came back into the game. He had some pressure in his face, threw it a little too high, was hit, it was tipped, and I caught it.” Weis singled out McDougald, and McDougald singled out Agostinho. “Keba’s definitely a problem for the offensive lineman,” McDougald said. “From spring to camp, he’s just been getting better. He’s bigger, stronger. Keba’s grown immensely, not only body size, but mentally as well. I think Keba’s starting to get his groove.” He meant as a football player, not a singer of the alma mater. The players earned an “A” for effort but not for performance in enacting their coach’s new postgame orders, to head to the sideline and sing the alma mater to the student section. “We all can’t sing,” McDougald said. “Nobody can sing. We butchered that. We butchered that song. I’m not going to lie to you.” As long as Agostinho and friends can apply the pressure and McDougald and mates can capitalize on the mistakes of hurried quarterbacks, nobody will care to grade their singing.

KANSAS DEFENSIVE LINEMAN JOSH WILLIAMS CELEBRATES after recovering a fumble by South Dakota State in the second quarter. The takeaway was one of five KU recorded Saturday in its opening victory over the Jackrabbits.

Emphasis on takeaways pays off By Matt Tait

For a defense that recorded just 18 turnovers during the entire 2011 season, picking up five takeaways in one game, as Kansas University did in its season-opening victory Saturday, may seem a little bit like magic. It wasn’t. “I think that’s a direct result of what we’ve talked about all along,” defensive coordinator Dave Campo said, “getting to the football and making sure we’re around it because you never know.” During the 31-17 victory against South Dakota State, the Jayhawks hauled in four interceptions — two by senior safety Bradley McDougald — and a fumble. While the turn-

No joke: Rangers hold off Royals KANSAS CITY, MO. (AP) — The Texas Rangers figure they’ll be just fine if they keep focusing on themselves. That’s why the AL West leaders were lounging on black leather sofas in the visiting clubhouse at Kauffman Stadium on Wednesday afternoon, hours before playing Kansas City, and stifling laughter as they watched comedian Robin Williams do a stand-up routine on television. Rather than watching, say, second-place Oakland’s game against the Los Angeles Angels. “Those guys aren’t worrying about that,” Rangers manager Ron Washington said after a 7-6 victory Wednesday evening. “If we take care Please see ROYALS, page 3B

Aldrich reflects on trip ————

Former Jayhawk center moved by visit to Johannesburg By Gary Bedore

FORMER KANSAS UNIVERSITY CENTER COLE ALDRICH SPEAKS during a one-day visit Wednesday to Allen Fieldhouse.

Cole Aldrich couldn’t stop smiling on Tuesday’s 16-hour flight from Johannesburg back to the United States as he reflected on a rewarding 12-day NBA-sponsored Basketball Without Borders excursion to that impoverished land. “The biggest thing I noticed while we were there was the joy — the tears from the people knowing that we cared about them,” former Kansas University center Aldrich said Wednesday from Allen Fieldhouse. “They are in townships surrounded by all this poverty and tough things. You don’t always see people coming in wanting to give their time and showing care and affection and love toward them.” Aldrich and Oklahoma City Thunder teammates Nick Collison, Thabo Sefolosha and Serge Ibaka joined fellow NBA players Luol Deng, Luc Mbah and C.J. Watson as instructors in youth basketball camps in the Johannesburg area. They also helped build a house for

Habitat For Humanity and dedicated a huge basketball complex. “The biggest thing is there are so many things people need there, starting with the bare essentials like food and clothing,” Aldrich said. “The house we replaced was 500 square feet maybe, basically an oversized shed. You walk in, and there’s dirt floors, no electricity, nothing. You have a lot of poverty, and it’s eye-opening to see that.” Aldrich, 23, said he’d love to return someday to reconnect with the individuals he met on the trip. He also would encourage others to travel to Africa at some point and/or donate funds to help those in need. “The purpose at least for me in going into it was to help other people out, and also when you are helping other people out, you really enrich your own life,” Aldrich said. “You see how truly blessed you are to be living in the U.S. and have the things and opportunities we have.” Please see ALDRICH, page 3B

Another Late Night visitor is Chris Jones, a 5-10 sophomore point guard from Northwest Florida State College ...

of our business, it doesn’t matter what they do.” Well, the Rangers certainly took care of their business. Adrian Beltre hit a three-run homer, Michael Young also went deep and Texas held on against the Royals to open a five-game lead in the division after the A’s lost their matinee. Ryan Dempster (5-1) gave up RBI doubles to Billy Butler in the first inning and Salvador Perez in the sixth, but was otherwise stingy for the Rangers. He only allowed two other hits in six sharp innings, striking out eight to win his fourth consecutive game. “You know, I was in a situation where I was pitching for pride,” said Dempster, acquired in a July 31 trade with the Chicago Cubs. “Now I’m just trying to do my best every fifth day.” Beltre’s homer came off Everett Teaford (1-4), who was making his fifth start of the year. Young’s solo shot came off Vin Mazzaro during a three-run seventh. The runs proved handy when Kansas City mounted a late comeback. Alcides Escobar’s RBI single off Joe Nathan put the potential tying run on first with two outs in the ninth, but Alex Gordon flied out to end the game. It was Nathan’s 27th consecutive save. Ian Kinsler, Elvis Andrus and Nelson Cruz also drove in runs to help the Rangers (81-55) move a season-high 26 games above .500, and assure a club-record fourth straight season of .500 or better. The 28-year-old Teaford was called upon to make his first start for Kansas City since July 8, when he allowed five runs in 41⁄3 innings at Detroit. He’s been exemplary in long relief —

OVERLAND PARK — Lawrence High’s Whitney Simons won in singles and doubles in the Lions’ 6-2 loss to Blue Valley Northwest on Wednesday in a girls tennis dual. Simons defeated BVNW’s Nikki Oast, 8-6, and teamed with Kendall Pritchard for an 8-2 doubles victory.

Ashe Stadium in the closing moments of his career, the 2003 U.S. Open champion headed into retirement with a 6-7 (1), 7-6 (4), 6-2, 6-4 loss to 2009 champion Juan Martin del Potro of Argentina in the fourth round at Flushing Meadows on Wednesday. “If we do badly, then it costs us something; if we do well, we get great things. This was about something bigger. It wasn’t about ranking points or paychecks or anything else,” Roddick said. “This week I felt like I was 12 years old, playing in a park. It was extremely innocent. That was fun. I enjoyed it.” His defeat was significant, if not as unexpected as top-seeded Roger Federer’s 7-6 (1), 6-4, 3-6, 6-3 quarterfinal loss was

KU’s scout team offensive player of the week last week but does not figure to win the award again. “I said, ‘If you don’t go down there and be the best player on scout team, then you and I are gonna have a problem,’” Weis said. “So I told him he only gets it once, and he got it the first week.” Freshman defensive end Tyler Holmes was named the defensive scout team player of the opening week.

Another KU connection While it has been well detailed how many former Jayhawks are on the coaching staff at Rice, there exists another KURice connection that extends to the playing field. Senior linebacker Kyle Prater is the son of a Jayhawk. Prater’s father, John, was an offensive lineman at KU from 1980-81.

Roddick’s career ends; Federer out of U.S. Open NEW YORK (AP) — More than an hour after hitting one last shot as a professional tennis player, then delivering one last, voicewavering speech to an adoring U.S. Open audience, Andy Roddick exited the locker room one last time. Accompanied by his wife and other family members, a black baseball cap tugged low over his eyes, Roddick slung a racket bag off his aching right shoulder — the one responsible for so many high-speed aces, violent forehands and the most recent Grand Slam title by an American man — and tossed the equipment in the back of a waiting van. Won’t need that any longer. Serenaded by choruses of “Let’s go, Andy!” that rang through Arthur


several hours later against No. 6 Tomas Berdych of the Czech Republic. Federer won five of his record 17 Grand Slam championships at the U.S. Open and was bidding to reach the semifinals in New York for the ninth consecutive year. But Federer’s famous forehand was way off most of the evening, while the 6-foot-5 Berdych kept pounding fast serves and dangerous groundstrokes right where he wanted them. It was Berdych’s fourth victory in his last seven meetings against Federer, including in the 2010 Wimbledon quarterfinals en route to a runner-up finish there. Now Berdych will play Olympic champion Andy Murray for a berth in the U.S. Open final.

for a 1-2 pitch from Teaford and sent it soaring over the left-field wall for a three-run homer, his 29th of the season. The ball landed just shy of the fountains. “That’s what I’m supposed to be doing,” Beltre said demurely. The slugging third baseman also tripled and scored in the eighth, giving him 10 homers, seven doubles and two triples since Aug. 20. Beltre has scored 15 runs and driven in 20 in that stretch. “I saw his charts yesterday and the whole chart was like, red against lefties. It’s basically a heat map. Red would describe Kansas City in July, that kind of hot,” Teaford said. “If you make a bad pitch, he hits it real well. He’s tough. You’ve just got to hope to make good pitches.” The Royals clawed back with runs in the first and sixth, but Texas added three in the seventh, the homer by Young starting things off. Kansas City added two more runs in the bottom half to keep it close, and the teams traded runs in the eighth before Nathan held on through a shaky ninth.

Aldrich, who was in his old college town just a day, played pick-up basketball with various current and former Jayhawks on Wednesday. Also on hand was Sacramento Kings rookie Thomas Robinson, the No. 5 overall pick in the 2012 NBA Draft following his junior year at KU. Former KU guard Xavier Henry of the New Orleans Hornets was in town last weekend. “He definitely has the work ethic,” Aldrich said of Robinson. “He I think will learn a this year few things on the court is big for this season me obviand things like that. ously.” He’s going to be a good — Cole Aldrich, (pro) play- on his third er.” year with the A l d r i c h , Thunder meanwhile, is in the final year of his rookie contract that will pay him $2,445,480 this season. He’ll make $3,245,151 in 2013-14 if the team picks up his option. If not, he’d be a free agent. “I think this year is big for me obviously,” the 6-foot-11, 245-pound, thirdyear pro said. He’s received precious little playing time his first two years in the pros. “Nazr Mohammed signed with the Bulls. It opens a lot of opportunity for me to earn that backup (center) spot. I had a good summer, worked hard. I’ll go in there with the same work ethic I’ve had since high school, and things will take care of itself. I’m excited for the opportunity.” On a personal note, Bloomington, Minn., native Aldrich reported that he will marry KU graduate Britt Claflin next summer in a ceremony back in Minnesota.

The Lions will compete in a tournament Saturday in Emporia.

Wife’s Internet flirting must cease

Dear Confused: Some women (and men) enjoy flirting online with anonymous strangers.

Annie’s Mailbox

to stop contacting this man in order to regain your trust. If she refuses, hedges or indicates that there are problems in your marriage, ask her to go with you for counseling.

Marcy Sugar and Kathy Mitchell

Dear Annie: My nephew and his bride planned a small wedding ceremony with only the parents and siblings present. They made no secret of their plans. They also invited the rest of their family and friends to a big celebration a few weeks after. Imagine their surprise when a cousin and her daughter showed up at the ceremony uninvited. This was not a spur-ofthe-moment thing. It involved time off of work and getting on a plane. She left right after, saying she had other plans. How can the bride and groom get over the trauma of an uninvited guest? She ruined the

It’s playacting and fantasy, and they don’t believe these relationships will threaten their marriages. But even if your wife is not looking for real-life excitement, you should not ignore this. Please don’t jump to conclusions. A crucial part of marriage is good communication. Tell your wife you saw her chats with this man. Don’t be accusatory or angry. Simply say that you love her and this makes you sad and worried. Ask her what’s going on. She also needs

Names could be picked from a hat Some decades back, professional wit and Random House cofounder Bennett Cerf was asked if he had an idea for the title of a surefire best-seller. To his interviewer’s surprise, he took no time to reply and said, “Lincoln’s Doctor’s Dog.” As a publisher, he knew that books on any of those subjects were always popular, so combining the three was a nobrainer. I think cable television broadcasters have cottoned to the same philosophy. Certain words in any show’s title just seem to attract viewers. “Cajun,” ‘‘Storage,” ‘‘Ghost,” ‘‘Hunter,” ‘‘War,” ‘‘Car,” “Jersey,” ‘‘Dress, “Texas,” ‘‘Bride” and “House” show up repeatedly. Sometimes in odd combinations. Can “Cajun Bride Hunters” be far behind? How about “Jersey Ghost Storage Auction Kings”? The possibilities are endless. And they include the real, or at least reality, series “Texas Car Wars” (9 p.m., Discovery). Set in Austin, “Wars” follows some furious bidding between auto body shops in the Lone Star State as they compete with each other to see who can turn an apparent pile of rust and junk into a gleaming gem that they can resell. Make that “flip” — another word to add to our list.

Comedian Kevin Hart hosts the 2012 MTV Video Music Awards (7 p.m., MTV, VH1). The preshow and its attendant poses and interviews (6 p.m.) will be accompanied by electronica DJ Calvin Harris. New award categories include the “Most Share-Worthy Video,” described by the network as among “the most impactful music videos of the year.”

Tonight’s other highlights

Having just guaranteed Charlie Sheen 90 episodes, FX offers a five-hour marathon of “Anger Management” (5 p.m. to 10 p.m., FX). “Louie” is pre-empted.

Coverage of the Democratic National Convention (6 p.m., CNN, Current; 7 p.m., PBS, MSNBC; 8 p.m., NBC and Fox News; and 9 p.m., ABC, CBS) continues. Live feeds of the gathering can be found on Internet sites maintained by YouTube and C-SPAN. Highlights include speeches by Vice President Joe Biden and President Barack Obama.

The top six emerge on “America’s Got Talent” (7 p.m., NBC).

Graduation finally arrives on the season finale of “Glee” (8 p.m., Fox).

A pedophile escapes and kidnaps a minor on the summer season finale of “Rookie Blue” (8 p.m., ABC).


Comedian JoAnne Worley is 75. Rock singer-musician Roger Waters (Pink Floyd) is 69. Actress Swoosie Kurtz is 68. Comedianactress Jane Curtin is 65. Actorcomedian Jeff Foxworthy is 54. Country singer Mark Chesnutt is 49. Actress Rosie Perez is 48. Rhythm and blues singer Macy Gray is 45. Singer CeCe Peniston is 43. Actor Idris Elba is 40.


For Thursday, Sept. 6: This year you naturally give an excellent impression that radiates positive energy. You are more verbal and caring than in past years. If you are single, you might attract someone emotionally unavailable. If you are attached, the two of you gain by planning a special trip together. The Stars Show the Kind of Day You’ll Have: 5-Dynamic; 4-Positive; 3-Average; 2-So-so; 1-Difficult Aries (March 21-April 19)  You might be enthusiastic, but curb any impulsiveness until you know that a key person agrees with you. He or she responds to compassion, not aggressive behavior. Tonight: Indulge a friend. Taurus (April 20-May 20)  Much that occurs gives you a new appreciation for someone very close to you. In fact, in some manner, you might feel inspired by this person. Tonight: Out and about. Gemini (May 21-June 20)  Maintain a low profile, but at the same time, be aware of what is happening around you. You could be oversensitive to a comment. Tonight: Nap, then decide. Cancer (June 21-July 22)  You seem less burdened by a quandary than in the recent past. Focus on a goal, which might involve meeting with someone or having a discussion you have been putting off. Tonight: Already in weekend mode. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)  You cannot underestimate the innate charisma you exude. You discover that a partner, friend or potential sweetie feels as if he or she cannot do enough for you. Tonight: You might be calling off of work tomorrow.

WELCOME! By Mark Hooper


wedding. What does one say to a wedding crasher who feels no shame, but wants to keep it a secret from other family members? — She Ruined the Wedding Dear She: Please try not to be so overwrought. This cousin’s behavior was extremely rude, but unless she got drunk, knocked over the bride and jumped into all the photos, she did not ruin the wedding. If it was that important for the ceremony to be private (after broadcasting all the details), the couple could have hired someone to stand at the door and turn away uninvited guests.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)  Continue to assume the very powerful role of observer. You might be surprised by what comes up out of the blue. Tonight: Allow your imagination to make plans. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)  You discover the power of speaking your mind and understanding what is happening. With this knowledge, you can evolve to another level of caring or interacting. Tonight: Togetherness works. Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)  Others do not mean to be so challenging or aggravating. Could you be making more out of a difficult situation than need be? Tonight: Go along with a suggestion. Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)  Pace yourself, and you will not be upset. Express your deep feelings without expectations of a certain response. Tonight: Out with friends and/or a loved one. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)  Your creativity remains high, and your ability to move past an issue soars. Someone you interact with on a daily basis lets you know the depth of respect he or she has for you. Tonight: Be a wild thing. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)  You are a sign that normally has no problem with taking risks; however, you suddenly could feel uncomfortable. Know that the way you presently feel is the way the majority of people feel all the time. Tonight: Nap. Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)  Stay grounded. You understand where someone is coming from, which makes it easy to pitch in and help. Tonight: Hang out. — The astrological forecast should be read for entertainment only.

Dear Annie: My wife and I have been married for 18 years, and we have three children. I always thought we got along great. Over the past few years, we have not been as intimate as we once were, and I attributed it to busy schedules, children, etc. However, recently I discovered that my wife has been having Internet chats with a particular gentleman, and these chats get rather steamy. Annie, I cannot even get my wife to hug me without resistance, but yet she can talk to a stranger like this. She doesn’t know that I have seen these conversations. Is the handwriting on the wall? Should I prepare myself for her to leave? — Confused in Virginia
