Report: Kansas prison violates inmates’ rights By John Hanna Associated Press

TOPEKA — Sexual misconduct and abuse of inmates at Kansas’ prison for women is “rampant throughout the facility” and persisted even as federal offi-

cials investigated problems at the facility, according to a U.S. Justice Department report released Thursday. The department’s Civil Rights Division concluded that Kansas failed to adequately deal with problems at the Topeka Correctional Facility after the National

PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA ADDRESSES the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, N.C., on Thursday. Obama is seeking re-election in a tight race against Republican nominee Mitt Romney.

Obama pledges recovery in 2nd term By David Espo and Robert Furlow Associated Press

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — His re-election in doubt, President Barack Obama conceded only halting progress Thursday night toward fixing the nation’s stubborn economic woes, but vowed in a Democratic National Convention finale, “Our problems can be solved, our challenges can be met.” “Yes, our path is harder — but it leads to a better place,” he declared in a prime-time speech to convention delegates and the nation, blending resolve about rescuing the nation from near economic catastrophe with stinging criticism

of Republican rival Mitt Romney’s own proposals. Widely viewed as reserved, even aloof, Obama acknowledged “my own failings” as he asked for a second term, four years after taking office as the nation’s first black president. Citing progress toward recovery, he said, “After a decade that was defined by what we bought and borrowed, we’re getting back to basics and doing what America has always done best: We’re making things again.” “Four more years,” delegates chanted over and over as the 51-yearold Obama stepped to the podium, noticeably grayer than he was as

a history-making candidate for the White House in 2008. First Lady Michelle Obama and the couple’s daughters, Malia and Sasha, joined the president on stage in the moments after the speech, followed by other family members and Vice President Joe Biden and his wife. Strains of “Only in America” filled the hall as confetti filled the air.

Tight race Obama’s speech was the final act of a pair of highly scripted national political conventions in as many weeks, and the opening salvo of a twomonth drive toward Election Day that pits Obama against Romney, the former governor of

Massachusetts. The contest is ever tighter for the White House in a dreary season of economic struggle for millions. Biden preceded Obama at the convention podium and proclaimed, “America has turned the corner” after experiencing the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression. Obama didn’t go that far in his own remarks, but he said firmly, “We are not going back, we are moving forward, America.” With unemployment at 8.3 percent, the president said the task of recovering from the economic disaster of 2008 Please see OBAMA, page 6A

National commitment needed on obesity, officials say reverse this epidemic,” said Dr. William Dietz, past director of the division of nutrition, physical activity and HEALTH obesity at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Speaking to about 200 people

at the Kansas Summit on Obesity at the Ramada Inn, Dietz said many fail to see obesity as a threat or they consider it as someone else’s problem. He said the country needs an “emotional engagement” to fight obesity, similar to the struggle for civil rights and the efforts by Mothers Against Drunk Driving.

The leader of the Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks and Tourism has begun exploring the feasibility of a resort development at Clinton Lake. “We’re still in the beginning stages, but I can tell you that it is an idea that is very important to me,” said Robin Jennison, KDWPT secretary. Jennison confirmed he has met with state Rep. Tom Sloan, Sloan R-Lawrence, state Sen. Marci Francisco, D-Lawrence, and various city leaders about the idea of a major lodging and resort development Francisco located inside Clinton Lake State Park, which is just west of Lawrence. “With K-10 (the South Lawrence Trafficway) on track to be completed, that really adds to the potential of Clinton,” Jennison said. “Clinton is one of our great lakes. It may have one of the nicest marinas in the state, it has a stable water source, and it is close to a vibrant community. It has a lot going for it that would be attractive for a resort.”

“We need that passion,” he said. In Kansas, nearly two-thirds of adults and a fourth of adolescents were classified as overweight or obese. Nationally in 1991, no state had an obese population of more than 19 percent. Now, no state has less than 20 Please see OBESITY, page 2A

Jennison, however, said it likely would be at least another year before the state is ready to begin accepting proposals from private developers interested in building a resort. He said the next step in the process is having more detailed discussions with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. Jennison said he is optimistic the corps will be open to a longterm lease for a resort on federal land at the lake. The last time a resort project was seriously considered at Clinton was in 2001, and the issue of a long-term lease was a stumbling block, Jennison said. The cost to extend city water and sewer service to Clinton State Park also was a concern. But Jennison thinks new corps policies will help with the lease issue, and he said the Lawrence city limit is significantly closer to the state park than it was in 2001. “Plus, I think our timing may be right,” Jennison said. “The potential growth the city is talking about with a new sports complex could tie in very well with what we want to do.” Jennison said the state likely will be willing to consider a variety of ideas from private developers about what type of resort would be appropriate for the lake. In 2001, a development group had proposed a 150-room hotel with a conference center. Jennison said that type of development is still what he has in mind, but he’ll be interested to see other proposals too. Megan Hiebert, owner of Clinton Lake Marina, said she’ll also be interested in seeing how the process progresses. “They will have a lot of things to look at,” Hiebert said. “They’ll have to select an environmentally appropriate site for sure.” Jennison said there were about four locations in the state park that could be considered. Previously, developers had focused on a wooded point near the marina, but Jennison said it is recognized that site could create some ecological concerns. Hiebert, who has met briefly with Jennison about the resort idea, said she’s ready to hear more about what the state has in mind. “I definitely like the idea of additional tourism at the lake,” Hiebert said. “I think it could create a really positive economic impact for the whole area.” Jennison said he anticipates having a public meeting to discuss the resort idea early next year, if the process remains on track. — City reporter Chad Lawhorn can be reached at 832-6362.

percent obese, Dietz said. Gov. Sam Brownback encouraged people trying to lose weight: “Don’t give up.” “You don’t have to be in bondage to your obesity. It’s going to be a struggle,” Brownback said. He recommended that individual Kansans figure out what strategy works best. Brownback said that during meals he stops eating when he is still “just a little bit hungry.” He also said that sometimes when he and his family go out to eat, he splits an order with his wife, or doesn’t order but eats off his children’s plates. “They don’t like it, but I’m paying,” he quipped. When he first went to college at Kansas State University, Brownback said he gained 15 pounds in one month and quickly

had to adjust his eating habits. Dietz said that, nationally, healthy foods have to be more readily available, and people need to reduce screen time, replace sugary drinks with water and exercise more. “Physical activity is a magic drug that we should employ for everyone,” he said. Obesity is shortening lives and driving up health care costs for increased treatment of high blood pressure, Type 2 diabetes, heart disease and numerous other ailments, officials said. Dietz said he believed the U.S. would soon show progress in reducing obesity, but that it will take more awareness, much like what happened when attitudes changed about smoking. In addition to Brownback, Lt. Gov. Jeff Colyer, Kansas Department of Health and Environment Secretary Robert Moser, who are both physicians, and other Cabinet

members participated in the function, which was put together with grants and donations from the American Heart Association, Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Kansas, Kansas Health Foundation, Sunflower Foundation and the United Methodist Health Ministry Fund. — Statehouse reporter Scott Rothschild can be reached at 785-423-0668. 609 N.H.

Kindergarten teacher takes prize Educator at Kennedy School wins local Horizon Award

2 additional home burglaries reported ———

Incidents are latest in string of dozens this summer

Second-year kindergarten teacher Lauren Mitchell got a surprise from her colleagues, students and family Thursday afternoon. Her reaction, to everyone packed into the Kennedy School gym, was short and sweet: “Wow, I feel like I’m at the Academy Awards!” she said. “Thank you.” Mitchell was this year’s Lawrence Horizon Award winner. It’s a prize given to young teachers who show a lot of promise. Lawrence public schools Superintendent Rick Doll presented the award, which came with $250 from KU Credit Union. Describing Mitchell, he said to the assembled elementary students: “She’s extraordinary; that means some-

Insurance company accuses apartment owners of fraud By George Diepenbrock

Richard Gwin/Journal-World Photo

LANCE ROBINSON, of Export, Pa., is in Kansas, after traveling through dozens of states to promote the creation of “Brother to Brother Day,” which would be a national day of recognition for military, police, fire and medical emergency personnel.

An insurance company alleges the owners of the former Boardwalk Apartments committed fraud in claims they submitted after a deadly 2005 fire destroyed one building at the west Lawrence complex. The allegations from State Auto Property and Casualty Insurance Com-

pany of Ohio come as part of a lawsuit the Boardwalk owners filed in January claiming State Auto should have paid an additional $1 million in claims to cover business income losses due to the fire. But attorneys for State Auto allege Boardwalk owners “purposefully delayed” rebuilding the Please see LAWSUIT, page 4A

In the days following 9/11, tributes were common for military members, police, fire and emergency medical personnel across the country. But now, 11 years later, Lance Robinson can tell you how the attitude has changed. “There is a lot of apathy because the war on terror has drug on for so long,” Robinson said. “There are still a lot of patriots and a lot of Americans who care, but there are some people who are really tired of hearing about it, too.” Robinson ought to know. Robinson has traveled to 25 states since September of 2010 to raise awareness for a new day of remembrance he hopes to establish: Brother to Brother Day. “There have been various people who have tried to raise awareness or tried to raise money, but nobody actually has tried to create a day to honor all the people who serve us.” Robinson, who hails from Export, Pa., has been in Lawrence since last week to drum up attention for the Brother to Brother Day. He received a proclamation from the Lawrence City Commission on Tuesday, and recently rode his bicycle from Lawrence to the Capitol in Topeka to gain attention for the event. Robinson will be hosting an event at 2 p.m. Monday at the Lawrence Visitors Center, 402 N. Second St., to briefly honor uniformed personnel.

Sept. 10 is the day Robinson hopes Congress eventually will declare as a national day of recognition for military, police, fire and medical emergency personnel. Robinson said he’s not looking for the day to become a national holiday. He said people shouldn’t get the day off, but rather ought to go about their daily routines, with one exception. “My goal is that when we see someone in uniform that day, we’ll stop and give each other a handshake of honor,” Robinson said. Robinson began his quest by walking from his Pennsylvania home to the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in Arlington National Cemetery in 2010. But the 54-year-old machinist, who served as a Marine in the 1970s, said he had a calling to do more. “It started out as something I just wanted to do privately,” Robinson said. “But I felt like the mission needed to continue.” Robinson proceeded to walk to 18 state capitals in the eastern United States. After taking a brief break, Robinson started back up in March, this time using a combination of a car and a bicycle to travel to state capitals. He said traveling through some of the larger cities on foot or bicycle became too dangerous, so he began driving. But he said he generally stops quite a few miles away from a capital city and Please see BROTHER, page 4A

Isaac’s remnants relieves some drought-hit states By Jim Suhr Associated Press

ST. LOUIS — Hurricane Isaac’s remnants dumped heavy rain on some key Midwest farming states, dramatically lessening the drought there while corn-producing heavyweights Iowa and Nebraska missed out on that moisture and saw their conditions worsen badly, according to a drought report released Thursday. The U.S. Drought Monitor’s weekly report came as federal forecasters separately warned that the worst drought in decades could persist for months in a large swath of the central and southern Plains, portions of the Rockies and much of California. “Most of these areas are moving toward a climatologically drier time of year, and there is no compelling indication that substantially above-normal precipitation will fall during the next three months,” according to the National Weather Service’s Seasonal Drought Outlook. That would be bad news for Nebraska, which paid an especially high price for losing out on Isaac’s rainfall as the storm moved northward through the central U.S. The area of that state deemed to be in exceptional drought — the highest classification — ballooned 47 percent, to 71 percent, in the seven-day period ending Tuesday, the latest Drought Monitor update showed. In Iowa, the nation’s biggest corn producer, the area of land deemed to be in exceptional or extreme drought rose 4 percentage points, to 62 percent. When it comes to states getting moisture during this worst drought in two generations, “it’s just like it’s been all summer — there are the haves and the have-nots,” said Brian

A COMBINE IS SURROUNDED BY DUST at it finishes harvesting a row of corn Thursday near Bennington, Neb. The remnants of Hurricane Isaac dumped heavy rain on some key Midwest farming states and dramatically lessened the drought there, but Iowa and Nebraska missed out. Fuchs, a National Drought Mitigation Center climatologist who authored Thursday’s update. Even in states that got rain from Isaac — in some cases as much as 10 inches — the relief came far too late in the growing season to offer much help to withered corn crops, which already are being harvested. But there was reason to cheer, as other crops such as soybeans still are maturing. Southeast of St. Louis near Coulterville, Ill., Dean Campbell concedes “Isaac blessed us with some water,” by some accounts several inches. But that won’t save his 900acre corn crop bound for being a bust. With about 40 percent of his harvest done, Campbell says he’s averaging a “very, very poor” 14 bushels per acre — a snippet of the 130 bushels he’s normally get. “We’re not anticipating a bumper crop by any means,” said Campbell, 60, who was more optimistic about his stillmaturing 1,100 acres of soybeans, which can still make use of the rain. He won’t know what that outcome will be until reaping that crop several weeks from now.

“We have potential in the bean field,” he said. “We won’t have a record crop, but we’ll have a reasonable crop. That’s the typical response from anyone in the Midwest.” Missouri, which in some places got as much as 6 inches of rainfall from Isaac, saw the area of land in exceptional drought plummet from 35 percent last week, to just 3 percent of the state. The area in extreme or exceptional drought plunged a whopping 66 percentage points, to 32 percent of the state. In neighboring Illinois, the extent of the two worst classifications of drought spiraled from roughly 70 percent to about 7 percent, with Isaac’s rainfall erasing the exceptional drought that had gripped nearly 8 percent of the state. None of Indiana is now in exceptional or extreme drought, when 39 percent of the state was deemed as such the week before. More than 10 inches of rain fell in parts of Arkansas, which sat squarely in Isaac’s path, helping cut the amount of state in exceptional drought to 12 percent, down 33 percentage points from a week ago. Half of the state still remains in extreme drought.


to stop for the winter, and then visit the remaining states in the western United States next year. By then, he hopes, momentum will have built for Congress to officially declare Sept. 10 as Brother to Brother Day. After that, he hopes to go back to Pennsylvania where he has a wife and a 13-year old daughter. “When I’m totally done, I hope to go back to my life,” Robinson said. “But not yet.”

burned building. “Specifically, State Auto alleges Boardwalk razed its entire apartment complex, including buildings unaffected by the fire, and constructed a new and different apartment complex,” Robert Cockerham, a State Auto attorney wrote in a motion. “While Boardwalk is free to do with its apartment complex what it wants, it is fraud for Boardwalk to claim losses connected with its business decision to build an entirely new apartment complex as losses connected with the fire damage to (one building).” A new complex, Tuckaway Apartments at Frontier, in 2010 and 2011 replaced the former Boardwalk complex, which is north of Sixth Street and Lawrence Avenue. Three Boardwalk residents, Nichole Bingham, Yolanda Riddle and Jose Gonzalez, died in the Oct. 7, 2005, early morning fire, and a jury later convicted another resident, Jason Allen Rose, who is now 26, of aggravated arson, three counts of involuntary manslaughter and other charges. Rose is serving a 10-year sentence in prison. Boardwalk’s attorneys have said State Auto’s fraud claims are baseless, as attorney Stacey M. Bowman argued in a motion earlier this month that Boardwalk’s owners rebuilt the building destroyed in the fire within a time frame the parties agreed upon. “Boardwalk alleged that it timely notified State Auto of its election to rebuild and that State Auto led Boardwalk to believe it was evaluating the business income and replacement cost claims by asking Boardwalk to provide information and documents related to the claims,” Bowman wrote. U.S. District Judge Julie Robinson is handling the lawsuit. A trial is currently scheduled for August 2013.

Bishop convicted for failing to report priest KANSAS CITY, MO. — The first American bishop criminally charged in the clergy sex abuse scandal was found guilty Thursday of a misdemeanor count of failing to report suspected child abuse, a conviction that extends the struggle of Roman Catholic leaders to restore trust in the church. Bishop Robert Finn was acquitted on a second count. He received two years of probation, but that sentence was suspended and will be wiped from his record if he adheres to a set of conditions that include mandatory abuse reporting training, setting aside $10,000 in diocese money for abuse victim counseling, and instructing all diocesan agents to report suspected criminal activity involving minors. The charges stemmed from the child pornography case of the Rev. Shawn

Ratigan, in which Finn and other church officials knew about photos on the priest’s computer but didn’t turn him in for six months. Finn initially was charged with one misdemeanor count, but a second was added to acknowledge two separate time periods in which he failed to report suspected abuse. On Thursday, the bishop was acquitted of a charge spanning Dec. 17, 2010, to Feb. 10, 2011, because Jackson County Judge John M. Torrence said there was no evidence beyond a reasonable doubt that Finn knew about the pornographic photos. The charge on which Finn was convicted involved a period from Feb. 11 to May 11, 2011. Finn sent Ratigan to stay at a convent in Independence, Mo., during that time and ordered him to stay away from children and avoid

TOPEKA (AP) — A Kansas doctor is likely to face a lengthy court battle in trying to regain her medical license after state regulators sanctioned her over referrals of young patients to Dr. George Tiller for late-term abortions, her attorney said Thursday. Kelly Kauffman, a Topeka attorney who represents Dr. Ann Kristin Neuhaus, said Kansas courts probably will take two years or longer to settle Neuhaus’ challenge of a State Board of Healing Arts order revoking her license. Neuhaus rejects the board’s finding that she didn’t perform adequate mental health exams on 11 patients, aged

10 to 18, before referring them in 2003 to Tiller’s clinic in Wichita. Neuhaus operated an abortion clinic from 1997 to 2002 at 205 W. Eighth St. in Lawrence. Tiller was one of a few U.S. physicians known to perform abortions in the final weeks of pregnancy, and he was shot to death in May 2009 by a man professing strong antiabortion views. Neuhaus provided second medical opinions required by Kansas law for the late-term abortions to go forward. The board in June ratified an administrative judge’s earlier findings against Neuhaus and revoked her license


in the Brownback administration.” Potential problems at the prison — including sexual misconduct by staff — were highlighted by the Topeka Capital-Journal in a series of stories starting in October 2009, though allegations dated from the Sebelius administration. The newspaper reported that inmates and staff said as many as one-third of its 250 employees had been involved with an illegal black market that included exchanging drugs for sex with female inmates. At the time, state corrections officials said the extent of the potential problems had been exaggerated. But Perez’s letter said the state and the prison have failed to remedy “the myriad systemic causes of harm to the women prisoners” despite “well-documented” investigations and audits. As of Wednesday, the prison housed 684 inmates. “They live in a highly charged sexual environment with repeated and open sexual behavior, including sexual relations between staff and prisoners and non-consensual sexual conduct between the female prisoners, open and notorious sex parties, and public nudity,” Perez said in his letter. Much of the inappropriate behavior remains unreported because of insufficient staffing, inadequate policies, a fear of retaliation and “a dysfunc-


April 2011. The findings were reported to Brownback in a letter Thursday from Thomas Perez, the assistant U.S. attorney general for civil rights. The letter warned that U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder could file a lawsuit if the department does not believe Kansas is properly resolving the problems by late October. “We conclude that TCF fails to protect women prisoners from harm due to sexual abuse and misconduct from correctional staff and other prisoners in violation of their constitutional rights,” Perez said in his letter. “The women at TCF universally fear for their own safety.”

Security upgrades Jones-Sontag noted the 17-month lag between the start of the Justice Department’s investigation and Perez’s letter, and said the Brownback administration “moved aggressively to make changes” that included new policies and the installation of 100 new cameras at the prison. She said that as the Justice Department gains “a more complete picture” of conditions at the prison, “it will become clear that the constitutional rights of TCF inmates are protected by the State of Kansas

Man gets 71 months in prison for shooting A 27-year-old Lawrence man was sentenced to 71 months in prison Thursday for his role in an April 1 shooting outside an apartment complex in the 1300 block of Michigan Way. Douglas County District Court Judge Michael Malone sentenced William Verner, 27, Thursday after Verner pleaded no contest to aggravated battery and criminal possession of a firearm charges as part of a plea agreement reached in July. Verner had been facing two attempted murder charges in the case after he was accused of shooting Chebon Chibitty, 22, in the leg and missing another man, Ryan Harjo, after an altercation earlier that day. Verner received a 71-month sentence on the aggravated battery conviction and eight months on the firearm conviction; the sentences will run concurrently. Harjo testified at a preliminary hearing that before the shooting he chased Verner away from the area that night with an ax and after accusing Verner of stealing $50 from his wife weeks earlier. Prosecutors said that Verner returned to the area later in a car and fired into a crowd, missing Harjo and hitting Chibitty.

Man charged with robbery, battery A 23-year-old Russell man has been charged with aggravated robbery and battery stemming from a May 13 incident in which prosecutors allege the man used a handgun during a robbery.

The jail booking log indicates Smith was previously being held at the Ellis County Jail. He is being held on a $20,000 bond.

tional grievance system,” according to the letter, which noted that 68 percent of the prison’s staff is male.

Problems persist In 2010, during the tenure of Democratic Gov. Mark Parkinson, the state increased the penalties for staff having sex with inmates, requiring prison time. After Brownback took office and appointed him, Corrections Secretary Ray Roberts conducted an internal investigation, leading to more announced changes. Yet the Justice Department’s letter said the Department of Corrections and the prison “still have failed to adequately address the deficiencies.” In June, Brownback and legislative leaders agreed to have the state pay $30,000 to a former Topeka Correctional Facility inmate who was forced by an officer into having sex in 2008. The officer had pleaded guilty to unlawful sexual relations and was placed on probation.The Justice Department letter lists 21 steps it expects the Department of Corrections and the prison to take to remedy the problems. They included enforcing a “zero tolerance” policy against sexual abuse and a policy to prevent any employee, contractor or volunteer suspected of sexual misconduct from having contact with inmates until an investigation is completed.

Jury convicts Drew Peterson of 3rd wife’s death By Don Babwin and Michael Tarm Associated Press

JOLIET, ILL. — Drew Peterson, the former Illinois police officer who gained notoriety after his muchyounger wife vanished in 2007, was convicted Thursday of murdering a previous wife in a case centered on secondhand hearsay statements from both women. Peterson, 58, sat stoically looking straight ahead and did not react as the judge announced jurors had found him guilty of first-degree murder in the death of his third wife,

Kathleen Savio. Her relatives gasped, then hugged each other as they cried quietly. Illinois has no death Peterson penalty, and Peterson now faces a maximum 60-year prison term when sentenced Nov. 26. The trial was the first of its kind in Illinois history, with prosecutors building their case largely on hearsay thanks to a new law, dubbed “Drew’s Law,” tailored to Peterson’s case. That hearsay, prosecu-

tors had said, would let his third and fourth wives “speak from their graves” through family and friends to convict Peterson. Hearsay is any information reported by a witness that is not based on the witness’ direct knowledge. Defense attorneys said its use at the trial would be central to their appeal. Savio’s family members were emotional as they left the courtroom. Her sister, Susan Doman, threw herself into the arms of her husband, Mitch Doman. “Finally, finally, finally. ... We finally got that murdering bastard,” Savio’s brotherin-law, Mitch Doman, said.

Peterson’s personality loomed over the trial, and bystanders gathered outside the courthouse began chanting, “Loser. Loser. Loser,” as reporters interviewed his attorneys. Before his 2009 arrest, the glib, cocky Peterson seemed to taunt authorities, joking on talk shows and even suggesting a “Win a Date With Drew” contest. His notoriety inspired a TV movie starring Rob Lowe. “The whole world has been waiting for Drew Peterson to be convicted. They hate him. ... They passed a law to get this individual,” said defense attorney Joe Lopez.

The verdict was a vindication for Will County State’s Attorney James Glasgow and his team, who gambled by putting on a case they conceded was filled with holes. Glasgow drew cheers from the crowd gathered outside the courthouse. “He was a thug,” Glasgow said of Peterson. “He would threaten people because he had a gun and a badge. Nobody would take him on, but we took him on and he lost.” A neighbor came across Savio’s body on March 1, 2004. She was face down her dry bathtub, her thick, black hair soaked in blood

and a 2-inch gash was on the back of her head. The drowning death of the 40-year-old aspiring nurse was initially deemed an accident — a freak slip in the tub. After Peterson’s fourth wife, 23-year-old Stacy Peterson, vanished in 2007, Savio’s body was exhumed, re-examined and her death reclassified as a homicide. Drew Peterson had divorced Savio a year before her death. His motive for killing her, prosecutors said, was fear that a pending settlement, which included their $300,000 home, would wipe him out financially.

PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA and first lady Michelle Obama wave to delegates as their daughters Malia and Sasha join them Thursday at the Democratic National Convention.

paign begins in earnest even though Obama and Romney have been pointing toward a Nov. 6 showdown for months. To the cheers of delegates, Obama retraced his steps to halt the economic slide, including the auto bailout that Romney opposed. “After a decade of decline, this country created over a half million manufacturing jobs in the last two and a half years,” he said. Turning to national security, he said he had promised to end the war in Iraq, and had done so. “We’ve blunted the Taliban’s momentum in Afghanistan, and in 2014 our longest war will be over,” he said. “A new tower rises above the New York skyline, al-Qaida is on the path to defeat and Osama bin Laden is dead,” he declared, one of the night’s repeated references to the special operations forces raid that resulted in the terrorist mastermind’s de-

mise more than a year ago. He lampooned Romney’s own economic proposals. “Have a surplus? Try a tax cut. Deficit too high? Try another. Feel a cold coming on? Take two tax cuts, roll back some regulations and call us in the morning,” he said. Mocking Romney for his overseas trip earlier this summer, Obama said, “You might not be ready for diplomacy with Beijing if you can’t visit the Olympics without insulting our closest ally.” That was a reference to a verbal gaffe the former Massachusetts governor committed while visiting London. The hall was filled to capacity long before Obama stepped to the podium, and officials shut off the entrances because of a fear of overcrowding for a speech that the campaign had originally slated for the 74,000seat football stadium nearby. Aides said weather concerns prompted the move to the convention arena, capacity 15,000 or so.

WASHINGTON — The U.S. health care system squanders $750 billion a year — roughly 30 cents of every medical dollar — through unneeded care, byzantine paperwork, fraud and other waste, the influential Institute of Medicine said Thursday in a report that ties directly into the presidential campaign. President Barack Obama and Republican Mitt Romney are accusing each other of trying to slash Medicare and put seniors at risk. But the counter-intuitive finding from the report is that deep cuts are possible without rationing, and a leaner system may even produce better quality. “Health care in America presents a fundamental paradox,” said the report from an 18-member panel of prominent experts, including doctors, business people, and public officials. “The past 50 years have seen an explosion in biomedical knowledge, dramatic innovation in therapies and surgical procedures, and management of conditions that previously were fatal ... “Yet, American health care is falling short on basic dimensions of quality, outcomes, costs and equity,” the report concluded. If banking worked like health care, ATM transactions would take days, the report said. If home building were like health care, carpenters, electricians and plumbers would work from different blueprints and hardly talk to each other. If shopping were like health care, prices would not be posted and could vary widely within the same store, depending on who was paying. If airline travel were like health care, individual pilots would be free to design their own preflight safety checks — or not perform one at all. How much is $750 billion? The one-year estimate of health care waste is equal to more than 10 years of Medicare cuts in Obama’s health care law. It’s more than the Pentagon budget. It’s more than enough to care for the uninsured. Getting health care costs better controlled is one of the keys to reducing the deficit, the biggest domestic challenge facing the next president. The report did not lay out a policy prescription for Medicare and Medicaid but suggested there’s plenty of room for lawmakers to find a path. Both Obama and Romney agree there has to be a limit to Medicare spending, but they differ on how to get that done.

is exceeded in American history only by the challenge Franklin Delano Roosevelt faced when he took office in 1933. “It will require common effort, shared responsibility and the kind of bold persistent experimentation” that FDR employed, Obama said. In an appeal to independent voters who might be considering a vote for Romney, he added that those who carry on Roosevelt’s legacy “should remember that not every problem can be remedied with another government program or dictate from Washington. He said, “The truth is, it will take more than a few years for us to solve challenges that have built up over the decades.” In the run-up to Obama’s speech, delegates erupted in tumultuous cheers when former Ari-

the president would ask the country to rally around a “real achievable plan that will create jobs, expand opportunity and ensure an economy built to last.” He added, “The truth is it will take more than a few years for us to solve challenges that have built up over a decade.” In convention parlance, both Obama and Biden were delivering acceptance speeches before delegates who nominated them for new terms in office. But the political significance went far beyond Jobs top concern that — the moment when Obama’s campaign said the general election cam-

zona Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, grievously wounded in a 2011 assassination attempt, walked onstage to lead the Pledge of Allegiance. The hall grew louder when she blew kisses to the crowd. And louder still when huge video screens inside the hall showed the face of Osama bin Laden, the terrorist mastermind killed in a daring raid on his Pakistani hideout by U.S. special operations forces — on a mission approved by the current commander in chief.

U.S. jobs outlook brightens a little By Christopher S. Rugaber Associated Press

WASHINGTON — The jobs outlook in the U.S. brightened a bit Thursday just before President Barack Obama was to make his case for reelection to the American people. Fewer people applied for unemployment benefits last week, the government reported. And companies boosted hiring in August, according to a private survey. A far more consequential report politically — the government’s unemployment and hiring figures for August — will come out today, just as the presidential race enters its stretch run. Jobs are the core issue in the race, and that report could sway some undecided voters. There will be two additional employment reports before Election Day. But by then, more Americans will have made up their minds. “It’s the most important economic data point we have between now and Election Day,” said Tony Fratto, a White House spokesman under President George W. Bush. Today’s jobs data is unlikely to signal significant improvement in the stillsluggish economy. Economists’ consensus forecast is that employers added 135,000 jobs

last month, according to a survey by FactSet. That’s below July’s gain of 163,000. And it’s probably not enough to bring down the unemployment rate, which is forecast to remain at 8.3 percent. That would let Republican nominee Mitt Romney point to 43 straight months in which unemployment has exceeded 8 percent. At the same time, today’s report will almost surely mark a 30th straight month of private-sector job gains, a point Obama and his allies are certain to spotlight. “The president’s supporters will say, ‘See, it’s improving,’ and the supporters of Gov. Romney will say, ‘See, it’s not improving fast enough,’” said Robert Shapiro, an economist and former trade official under President Bill Clinton. The biggest threat to Obama would be a rise in the unemployment rate, the most visible economic statistic for most voters. The rate declined slightly in the spring but is now back where it was in January. For the White House, higher unemployment would offset any political benefit from slow but consistent job creation. Voters are likely to ask, “If you’re creating jobs every month, why is the rate going in the wrong way?” Fratto said.

Police in legal minefield on Ariz. law By Jacques Billeaud and Nicholas Riccardi Associated Press

PHOENIX — More than two years after it was signed into law, the most contentious part of Arizona’s landmark immigration legislation is expected to go into effect following a federal court ruling issue late Wednesday. But the U.S. Supreme Court laid a legal minefield that Arizona now must navigate when the critical provision takes effect. The clause, one of the few significant ones that the high court left standing in a June ruling, requires all Arizona police officers to check the immigration status of people they stop while enforcing other laws and suspect are in the country illegally. While preserving that requirement, however, the Supreme Court explicitly left the door open to arguments that the law leads to civil rights violations. Attorneys would need actual victims to make that case. Civil rights activists are preparing to scour the state for such victims. Lydia Guzman, who runs Respect/Respeto, a Phoenix group that tracks racial profiling, said volunteers at the organization’s call center have already been told to listen for new complaints when the requirement goes into effect. “We’re watching and we’re looking for cases,” she said. Barring a successful, emergency challenge of Wednesday’s ruling to an appeals court — an outcome that legal observers believe is unlikely — the requirement is expected to go into effect in the next several days. U.S. District Judge Susan Bolton rejected arguments by civil rights attorneys that she should prevent the requirement from kicking in, noting that the Supreme Court had specifically found that the provision should be allowed to become law. Arizona police were formally trained on how to implement the law shortly after Gov. Jan Brewer signed it in 2010. The heads of some of the state’s biggest law enforcement agencies — the Phoenix and Tucson police departments and the Pima County sheriff’s office — were critical of it but ultimately said they would obey whatever parts the courts found to be constitutional. “We enforce laws passed by our legislators,” Sgt. Tommy Thompson, a Phoenix Police spokesman, said Wednesday night, noting the requirement still has not gone into effect. Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, who has been the most publicly aggressive in pursuing illegal immigrants, said in an interview Wednesday that his deputies already check the immigration status of people they encounter. Arpaio, a supporter of the law, said he expects no differences other than an increased number of lawsuits. The law’s author, former state Sen. Russell Pearce, said he does not expect sweeping changes in the way local police will conduct themselves once the requirement kicks in. “I’m not asking for roundups, I’m not asking for anything but paying attention and doing your job,” he said. “It’s not that we want people in jail. We want compliance.”

BRIEFLY Hungry households at record high WASHINGTON — Record numbers of U.S. households struggled at times to feed their families last year, according to a report Wednesday from the U.S. Department of Agriculture on the state of hunger in America. A lack of resources forced others to cut back on meals and disrupt their usual eating patterns, it says. A record 17.9 million U.S. households — 700,000 more than in 2010 — didn’t have enough food at all times last year to sustain active, healthy lives for all family members, according to the USDA. This “food insecurity” affected a record 14.9 percent of U.S. households and more than 50 million people, about one in six U.S. residents. Moreover, more than one in three “food insecure” households — 6.8 million — had “very low food security,” meaning that one or more family members

The added radiation from mammograms and other types of tests with chest radiation might be especially harmful to them and an MRI is probably a safer method of screening women under 30 who are at high risk because of gene mutations, the authors conclude. The study HEALTH can’t prove a link between the radiation and breast cancer, but is one of the biggest ever to look at the issue. The research was published Thursday in the journal BMJ. “This will raise questions and caution flags about how we treat women with (gene) mutations,” said Radiation may up Dr. Len Lichtenfeld, deputy chief medical officer of the breast cancer risk American Cancer Society.

After falling to 5.4 percent in 2010, the percentage of households with very low food security jumped to 5.7 percent last year, matching the record levels in 2008 and 2009 at the height of the economic collapse, the USDA reported.

Government warns of ‘zombie apocalypse’ WASHINGTON — “The zombies are coming!” the Homeland Security Department says. Tongue firmly in cheek, the government urged citizens Thursday to prepare for a zombie apocalypse, part of a public health campaign to encourage better preparation for genuine disasters and emergencies. The theory: If you’re prepared for a zombie attack, the same preparations will help during a hurricane, pandemic, earthquake or terrorist attack. The Federal Emergency Management Agency hosted an online seminar for its Citizen Corps organization

to help emergency planners better prepare their communities for disaster. The federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention last year first launched a zombie apocalypse social media campaign for the same purposes. Emergency planners were encouraged to use the threat of zombies — the flesh-hungry, walking dead — to encourage citizens to prepare for disasters. Organizers also noted the relative proximity to Halloween. Among the government’s recommendations were having an emergency evacuation plan and a change of clothes, plus keeping on hand fresh water, extra medications and emergency flashlights.

Kansas plan Kansas has nothing to lose and much to gain by moving forward on basic decisions related to national health care.


t’s no secret that Gov. Sam Brownback doesn’t support the federal Affordable Care Act. The question is whether he will risk handicapping his state by refusing to move forward on decisions that will guide, and likely improve, the implementation of national health care in Kansas. Kansas Insurance Commissioner Sandy Praeger and her staff are working to formulate a recommendation on a basic health insurance plan that should be available to Kansans who purchase insurance through a new online “exchange” or marketplace that federal officials say will be in operation in about 16 months. Kansas has until Sept. 30 to submit a “benchmark” plan that would meet the essential health benefits enumerated in the Affordable Care Act. If the state doesn’t submit a plan, the choice of benefits for Kansas residents would be left to federal health officials. Praeger and others see a number of advantages to Kansas formulating its own benchmark plan. Insurance officials who testified at a meeting in Topeka on Wednesday also urged the state to move quickly on settling the benchmark issue so that insurance companies will have time to implement new policies. To that end Praeger says she will submit a recommendation to Brownback within about a week. Unfortunately, indications are that the governor’s desk may be as far as the recommendation goes. On Wednesday, Brownback’s spokeswoman Sherriene Jones-Sontag reiterated the governor’s position that he would make no decisions “relating to the implementation of Obamacare” until after the November elections. The governor, who also returned a $31.5 million federal grant aimed at helping the state set up its health exchanges, is waiting to see whether Republican Mitt Romney is elected president and makes good on his promise to repeal the Affordable Care Act. Repeal could happen, but even if Romney is elected, there is no guarantee that the care act, or at least key provisions of it, won’t be implemented. If the plan moves forward either under Romney or Obama, Kansas needs to be ready. It needs to have had a say in how it wants this plan implemented so it provides the best benefit to Kansas residents. Ignoring the fact that this law could be implemented may make a political point, but it’s a poor strategy for the state. It will cost the state nothing to forward a benchmark plan to the federal government. If the Affordable Care Act eventually is repealed, the state will have lost nothing. However, if the act, indeed, moves forward, the state, by submitting a plan, will have gained a measure of control over how its provisions are implemented in Kansas, for Kansans. Brownback’s first responsibility is to the people of this state. The choice should be clear. LAWRENCE

Syria has parallels to Afghanistan WASHINGTON — The U.S. and its allies are moving in Syria toward a program of covert support for the rebels that, for better or worse, looks very much like what America and its friends did in Afghanistan in the 1980s. The parallels are spooky, if you’ll forgive the pun. In Syria, as in Afghanistan, CIA officers are operating at the borders (in this case mostly in Jordan and Turkey) helping Sunni insurgents improve their command and control, plus other activities. Weapons are coming from third parties (in Afghanistan, they came mostly from China and Egypt; in Syria, they’re mainly bought on the black market). And finally, a major financier for both insurgencies has been Saudi Arabia. There’s even a colorful figure who links the two campaigns: Prince Bandar bin Sultan, who as Saudi ambassador to Washington in the 1980s worked to finance and support the CIA in Afghanistan and who now, as chief of Saudi intelligence, is encouraging operations in Syria. What does this historical comparison suggest? On the positive side, the Afghan mujahedeen won their war and eventually ousted the Russian-backed government. (Yes, that’s another eerie parallel.) On the negative, this CIA-backed victory opened the way for decades of chaos and jihadist extremism that are still menacing Afghanistan, its neighbors

The Obama administration, to its credit, recognizes the dangers ahead. That’s one reason Obama’s approach to this war has been cautious and, according to critics, half-hearted and ineffective.” and even the United States. The Obama administration, to its credit, recognizes the dangers ahead. That’s one reason Obama’s approach to this war has been cautious and, according to critics, half-hearted and ineffective. Because the way forward is so uncertain, the administration has been taking baby steps. But it’s the nature of these wars that a little involvement leads to more, and still more. What does history teach us about such interventions that may be useful in the Syrian case? Here are several points to keep in mind as the covert war against Syrian President Bashar al-Assad ripens:

The U.S. should be wary

of supporting a Saudi strategy that inevitably is self-interested. The Saudis understandably would prefer that Sunnis who oppose autocratic rule should wage their fight far from the kingdom; Damascus is a far safer venue than Riyadh.

 The U.S. should be cautious about embracing the Sunni versus Shiite dynamic of the Syrian war. Rage against Shiites and their Iranian patrons has been a useful prop for the U.S. and Israel in mobilizing Sunni opposition against Assad, who as an Alawite is seen as part of the Shiite crescent. But this is a poisonous and potentially ruinous sectarian battle, the kind that nearly destroyed Iraq and Lebanon and is now plunging Syria into the inferno. The Saudis want to fight Shiites, yes, and further from home than Bahrain, or Al-Qatif in the kingdom’s eastern province. The U.S. should not endorse the sectarian element of this conflict.

 The U.S. should work hard (if secretly) to help the more sensible elements of the Syrian opposition, and limit the influence of extremists. This policy was ignored in Afghanistan, where the U.S. allowed Pakistan (aided by Saudi money) to back the fighters it liked — who turned out to be among the most extreme and dangerous. America is still trying to undo the mess caused by that exercise in realpolitik. Don’t do it again.

 Finally, the U.S. should subtly play the tribal card, which may be as crucial in Syria as it was in Iraq. The leaders of many Syrian tribes have sworn a blood oath of vengeance against Assad and their power is one reason why the engine of this insurgency is rural, conservative and Sunni. But Iraq showed that the tribal leaders can be the best bulwark against the growth of al-Qaida and other extremists. What’s scary about Syria is that al-Qaida is already fighting there, in the hundreds. Cells in Mosul and other parts of northern Iraq are sending fighters across the Syria-Iraq border, with the jihadist pipeline now operating in reverse. Arab intelligence sources tell me the Syrian opposition is laudably battling al-Qaida’s influence: The opposition killed an alQaida fighter named Walid Boustani, who tried to declare an “emirate” in a town near the Lebanese border; they also demolished a cell that raised al-Qaida’s black flag near Bab al-Salameh, along the Turkish border. Sunni opposition fighters aren’t necessarily al-Qaida fanatics, in other words. The rebels fighting Assad deserve limited U.S. support, just as the anti-Soviet mujahedeen did. But be careful: This way lies chaos and extremism that can take a generation to undo if the U.S. and its allies aren’t prudent. — David Ignatius is a columnist for Washington Post Writers Group.

Media bias To the editor: Scott Rothschild’s story, “Jenkins’ remark about unemployment rankles” showcases some of the reasons for rankle: biased reporting, fallacious reasoning that panders to the bias and indiscreet thinking. Congresswoman Jenkins’ comment on the face is true. “Right now we have people who are happy to collect unemployment and not work. We have a problem with people working the system.” Of course that is true! Change starts by facing the facts; fraud is a fact that can only be rooted out by exposing the abuse, telling the truth. Thank you, Lynn. I am sickened by the typical smug deflection Tobias Schlingensiepen expressed, “Nobody is happy to be unemployed.” And then the inference that to think so is to be disconnected and devoid of a compassionate nature that only the liberals (with other people’s money) exhibit. My hope is that, over the past four years, the American public has wised up and is able to discern fact from fairy tale. I hope we can hear the falsity in words like these. This election season, logic is sorely needed to recognize the blatant bias of our media and to see who is trying to have a serious conversation about serious issues that face us all. Waste and abuse

Home schoolers get shot Back when he was a student at Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah, Lawrence resident Ric Mitchell was feeling a little cooped up by his job. “I worked at the BYU poultry lab, cleaning chicken coops and picking up eggs,” Mitchell remembered. “I told myself I needed to find something better, something I wanted to do.” He wanted to coach basketball, so when he heard about a brand-new school in Provo with a nice gymnasium and no plans to play varsity basketball for the first five years, he approached the principal. “I told him: ‘You don’t have a team, and I don’t have a team, so why don’t we make it work? I’ll coach for the first year for free, and if you don’t like me, I’ll just walk away, no hassles.’ I thought he’d send me on my way,” Mitchell said. Instead, the principal eventually relented, and within five years, Mitchell said, the school had won two small-schools state championships. “To coach the way I want to coach takes too much time, so I got out of it for family reasons,” Mitchell said. “Now I’m getting back into it for family reasons.” Ric and Christy Mitchell home-school their seven children. “We don’t believe in isolating our children, but we do believe in insulating them,” Mitchell said. “Nothing against public schools, it’s just that some of our children’s educational needs can’t be met in public schools.” Their athletic needs — and the social benefits that accompany sports — couldn’t be met without a high school affiliation. Christy suggested Ric could start an athletic program for high school home-schoolers. The Independence Home School Lions, an approved school by the Kansas State High School Activities Association, played their first eight-man football game Friday and defeated the Olathe School for the Deaf, 36-34, in overtime, in what Mitchell called, “the most exciting game I’ve ever seen.” His son, freshman Juan Mitchell, ran for the winning touchdown and two-point conversion, aided by a punishing block from junior Marshall Bennett. Ric Mitchell said one 55-second stretch included five changes in possession, two fumbles, two interceptions and a blocked punt crammed into the minute. The team, coached by volunteer Reggie Leuthen and four assistants, practices at the 20-acre home of the Mitchells, a Lawrence address that borders Tonganoxie. A practice field was born when a bulldozer moved dirt. A game field on their property is in the works. All the games, including tonight’s at St. Mary’s, are on the road. Nine of the 12 players are from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, but Mitchell, an educator for the church, said, “Religion is not a factor. We’re open to anybody.” Home-school boys looking for a football or basketball team can contact Mitchell, the basketball coach, at 760-3700 or ric@ihssports. org. Girls sports are a year away, he said.

LAWRENCE HIGH’S CAROLINE DYKES GETS UP FOR A SPIKE against Shawnee Mission West in a quadrangular Thursday at LHS.

Lions win 2, run out of gas By Benton Smith

For a while, not much could curtail Lawrence High’s volleyball attack Thursday night at its home quadrangular. The Lions had swept Shawnee Mission West and Shawnee Mission South to set up a showdown with Olathe Northwest, one of the top teams in Class 6A. Even the Ravens fell victim to Lawrence’s stellar defense,

passing and overall athleticism in the first game of their match at LHS. But somewhere in the midst of the excitement surrounding the skillful show the Lions were determined to put on, they hit a wall, and ONW disposed of the Lions, 19-25, 25-19, 25-13. From the bench, LHS coach Stephanie Magnuson could plainly see a difference in her players. “We lost our physical energy,” she said.

Magnuson detected a little less bounce in her Lions (22), a little less oomph in their swings, feet not as quick to shuffle or slide. And on the other side of the net stood the Ravens (6-1, receiving votes in the latest Kansas Volleyball Association’s top-five rankings), conditioned and ready to take advantage. Admitted LHS senior setter Brealynn May: “I think we got Please see VOLLEYBALL, page 3B

Though Kansas University receiver Josh Ford was happy with his blocked punt in Saturday’s 31-17 victory over South Dakota State, he says it’s not his best one. Not even close. Last year, while at Arizona Western CC, Ford says best special-teams play came against New Mexico Military Institute on Oct. 8. “You know, in front of the punter, there’s always three big dudes?” Ford said. “I was coming straight up the middle.” When one of the personal protectors started to block Ford high, the receiver decided to dive over him. Ford was somersaulted in mid-air, but he also stuck a hand out to block the punt ... which was scooped up by a teammate for a touchdown. “I was scared as hell to do it, but my coach in practice kept telling me, ‘Man, you might have to go over these dudes. They’re really big guys,’” Ford said. “I was like, ‘I’m not about to kill myself.’ “But I just didn’t even think about it, and it just happened.” Though Ford was recruited to KU as a receiver, he certainly came with the reputation of a punt blocker as well. Ford said he first discovered the talent in high school when, after being added to the unit, he blocked six punts in one practice. “I don’t even think I had a backup,” Ford said with a laugh. “It was like, ‘You’re here regardless. You’re going to block the punt.’” After watching film of Ford, who blocked seven punts his senior year at Coolidge High in Landover, Md,. coaches at Arizona Western started him on the Please see FORD, page 3B

LHS, FSHS football hit road for Week 2 Haunted by opening woes, Lions travel to SMNW By Benton Smith

The past few days at Lawrence High football practices haven’t been easy, and that wasn’t the result of the hightempo format nor the late afternoon heat. The Lions, senior quarterback Brad Strauss said, have been beating themselves up over the mistakes that cost them in their 20-14 home loss to Shawnee Mission West last Friday. “We just had a bunch of little things — a couple missed assignments, the ball

slipped out of our hands, a couple drops — just things like that added up, and we couldn’t get it done in the end,” Strauss said. What troubled coach Dirk Wedd and his staff was that even Lawrence’s best players were culprits in some of the miscues, which seemed small in the moment. “It may start off as a snowball,” Wedd said, “but it ends up being an avalanche.” LHS (0-1) doesn’t want to get buried in its own snafus again today in its 7 p.m. road

After shutout victory, Firebirds gear for Vikings By Benton Smith

Free State High football coach Bob Lisher hasn’t had to worry about his players’ heads getting too big following their season-opening 37-0 victory at Olathe Northwest last week. “The heat itself has brought them back down to earth,” Lisher said, referring to boiling practices on the FSHS football stadium turf this week. “I think they understand our schedule, that each week it’s gonna get tougher and tougher.”

Next up for the Firebirds — 7 tonight at Shawnee Mission South District Stadium in Overland Park — is Shawnee Mission West, which won, 20-14, at Lawrence High in Week 1. As hot as it’s been, junior lineman Fred Wyatt said the momentum of a shutout win at least has the Firebirds hyped. “It makes practice a lot easier,” Wyatt said. Lisher knows tonight’s game won’t be easy, though, because the Vikings (1-0) Please see FSHS, page 3B

Djokovic reaches U.S. Open semis NEW YORK (AP) — Locked in a taut, thrill-a-minute second set, Novak Djokovic and Juan Martin del Potro headed to a tiebreaker and promptly produced a 20-stroke masterpiece of a point befitting a pair of past U.S. Open champions. More than a dozen shots in, defending champion Djokovic tossed up a lob. Del Potro, the 2009 champion, sprinted with his back to the court, got to the ball and lofted a lob the other way. Djokovic slammed an overhead. Del Potro somehow kept the ball in play. Djokovic laced a drop shot. Again, del

Potro got there, attempting another lob. It landed long. A point from a two-set lead, Djokovic threw his head back, roared “Come on!” and pumped his arms. Del Potro leaned his elbows atop the net, hunched over and rested his head on his arms. Close and compelling as their quarterfinal was, it might as well have been over. Djokovic’s down-the-line backhand winner moments later ended the tiebreaker, gave him a commanding lead, and sent him on the way to a 6-2, 7-6 (3), 6-4 victory Thursday night that put him

in his 10th consecutive Grand Slam semifinal. “We played some incredible rallies and incredible points,” Djokovic said. “It’s always entertaining, always so much fun, playing in these night sessions.” The second-seeded Serb will face fourth-seeded David Ferrer of Spain on Saturday, with a spot in Sunday’s final at stake. Ferrer advanced to his fourth career major semifinal by using his high-energy brand of legchurning, ball-chasing tennis to outlast eighth-seeded Janko Tipsarevic of Serbia 6-3, 6-7 (5),

2-6, 6-3, 7-6 (4) in 4 hours, 31 minutes. Under the lights at night in Arthur Ashe Stadium, the showcase matchup of Djokovic’s squeaky-sneaker defense, reflex returns and line-catching groundstrokes against the seventh-seeded del Potro’s big-ascan-be forehands topping 100 mph lasted a few minutes past three hours. But it was tremendously good every step of the way, and the second set alone was 84 minutes long — 11 minutes more than Djokovic’s entire firstround match last week

Proof that the NFL really does care about the health of its players was offered up Wednesday by commissioner Roger Goodell with the announcement of a $30 million grant to study brain injuries. Proof that the NFL really doesn’t care about its players is spelled out in recent court filings arguing against compensation for thousands of former players suffering from dementia and other issues after years of absorbing blows to the head on the field. Take your pick. If there’s one thing Goodell and NFL owners have shown in recent years is that they’re not afraid to use the power of America’s favorite sports league to do pretty much what they want no matter the issue. That’s not always a bad thing for fans, at least those whose taxes aren’t subsidizing their local NFL stadium. Opening week alone offers a smorgasbord of football delights with the promise of much more to come. America can’t get enough of the NFL, and the league is doing its best to reward the country’s insatiable appetite for its game. It started with the Super Bowl champion New York Giants against traditional rival Dallas. Then Peyton Manning makes his return on Sunday, while Andrew Luck debuts in his place in Indianapolis. There’s new hope in the nation’s capital with Robert Griffin III, and great expectations in New York with Tim Tebow. Mostly, though, there’s the simple giddiness of knowing the NFL is just a click away on the remote at least three nights a week for the rest of the year. Baseball may be America’s pastime, but football is America’s sport. The NFL can do no wrong, which makes it somewhat surprising that the league doesn’t try to do more things right. Last year it locked out players, intent on making its billiondollar franchises even more valuable. It worked. The Dallas Cowboys topped the $2 billion mark in the latest valuations by Forbes magazine. Other franchises’ worth also increased, with the average NFL team carrying a pricetag of $1.11 billion. Now a new season begins with field officials more accustomed to working small-time college games than being on the big stage. Determined to teach its referees a lesson about contract negotiations, the NFL is willing to risk the integrity of the game and safety of its players by using replacements who aren’t quite ready for prime time. The usual crews, of course, eventually will come back, hopefully before a game is compromised or a player gets hurt. But they — like the players last year — will do it under terms favorable to the NFL because the league holds the big stick. It’s the same kind of attitude that for years permeated the NFL when it came to concussions. It wasn’t until recently that the NFL even acknowledged a link between concussions and serious head injuries, much less offer up $30 million for medical research to the Foundation for the National Institutes of Health.

TIGER WOODS, LEFT, AND RORY MCILROY SHAKE HANDS after the first round of the BMW Championship on Thursday in Carmel, Ind. McIlroy shot an 8-under 64 for a share of the lead, and Woods opened with a 65.

McIlroy leads at BMW; Woods one shot back CARMEL, IND. — Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy seem to be spending a lot of time together lately. That includes the leaderboard at the BMW Championship. The biggest star in golf and his heir apparent put on a dazzling show Thursday at Crooked Stick, where the gallery caught a glimpse of the best players in the world for the first time since the 1991 PGA Championship. McIlroy, flawless with his irons, birdied his last two holes for an 8-under 64 and was part of a four-way tie for the lead with Indiana native Bo Van Pelt, U.S. Open champion Webb Simpson and Graham DeLaet, the Canadian who is quietly becoming the Cinderella of these FedEx Cup playoffs. Woods, who finished two shots behind Monday in Boston, isn’t going away quietly. He was only sharp when it came to scoring, making enough birdies to stay in the game, including a 30-foot chip-in on his last hole for a 65. Sixty players in the 70-man field were at par or better. Forty players were in the 60s. All but five holes played under par, and the average score was 69.47. “I think we all knew it was there for the taking today,” said Justin Rose, who opened with a 67 and was tied for 10th. Vijay Singh had a chance to join the leaders until he drove into the water on the 18th hole, though he escaped with par and was at 65. Luke Donald was in the group at 66. Phil Mickelson was at 69.


McCarthy stable after surgery OAKLAND, CALIF. — Oakland Athletics pitcher Brandon McCarthy was in stable condition in the critical care unit of a Bay Area hospital on Thursday, a day after having surgery for a skull

fracture and brain contusion caused by a line drive. McCarthy was hit in the right side of the head Wednesday by a line drive off the bat of Erick Aybar of the Los Angeles Angels. He was knocked down by the shot and hit his head on the ground.


Ex-Ravens owner Modell dies BALTIMORE — Former Baltimore Ravens owner Art Modell has died. He was 87. The team said Modell died early Thursday at Johns Hopkins Hospital, where he had been admitted Wednesday. A cause of death was not given. Modell was among the most important figures in the NFL as owner of the Cleveland Browns, which became the Ravens after he took the team to Baltimore in 1996 in a move that tarnished his reputation as one of the league’s most innovative and influential owners.

COLLEGE BASKETBALL Gillispie leaves hospital LUBBOCK, TEXAS — Texas Tech coach Billy Gillispie was discharged from the hospital on Thursday after a six-day stay amid an investigation into alleged player mistreatment. University Medical Center spokesman Eric Finley said Gillispie left the hospital sometime after 3 p.m. Thursday. Athletic director Kirby Hocutt has said the university is investigating allegations that Gillispie mistreated players. Gillispie called 911 on Friday morning, just hours before he was set to meet with Hocutt to discuss what the AD had heard from players Aug. 29.

Simien proud of fundraising work By Gary Bedore

Former Kansas University All-America basketball power forward Wayne Simien and Cindy Self, wife of KU coach Bill Self, are fourth-year co-chairs of Sunday and Monday fundraisers for Lawrence’s Family Promise. “I’d like to say how pleased we are at the support from the community that we are continuing to get,” Simien said Thursday, referring to Monday’s scramble golf tournament at Alvamar and Sunday’s auction party at Maceli’s. “More and more people are getting involved,


game against Shawnee Mission Northwest (1-0) at SM North District Stadium. Senior receiver and defensive back Will Thompson said a big night from the Lions’ offensive line would help their rushing game, which produced just 2.7 yards a carry in the opener. Strauss rushed for 45 yards and Tyrone Jenkins accounted for 35, while no one else broke into double digits. “Odds are it’s gonna be raining again,” Thompson said, “and those guys (the O-line) have got to step up with their blocking, and us as receivers, we’ve got to work on our blocking even more with it being slippery out.” More than that, Strauss said each LHS player can take it upon himself to make sure things go more smoothly against SMNW, which beat Olathe North, 25-14, last week. “Every person on the team doing their job every single play … if we can


have 6-foot-5, 290-pound junior Austin Chambers at right tackle and senior Brett Sterback at running back. “They get off the football and move it,” the coach said of the SMW line, adding it can look immovable at times. What makes Sterback effective, Lisher added, is his balance and ability to cut. He rushed for 115 yards and three touchdowns against LHS, so Free State’s defense understands just how good the Vikings back can be. “We’ve got to do a great job of squeezing gaps and shutting down gaps before he gets started,” Lisher said. Senior linebacker and running back TJ Cobbs said West’s running attack has been the focus at practices this week, but Free State (1-0) also has learned a lot about itself. “Our offense was really good,” Cobbs said of the Firebirds’ Week 1 victory. “We just need to keep pushing forward and get to the next level.”

which allows us to help more and more families. In the community where your time, attention and resources can be directed to a lot of things, whether it’s KU sports or shopping or entertainment, we’ve got a great opportunity to help serve a lot of families in need right here in our community,” Simien added. Proceeds go to Family Promise, whose mission is to “transform the lives of homeless children and their families by providing safe shelter, food, counseling, and training in partnership with local communities of faith through hospitality and daily living support in a compassion-

PRAIRIE VILLAGE — Free State High’s Jacqueline Zaitz took the all-around and the Firebirds won the team title Thursday at the Shawnee Mission East quadrangular gymnastics meet. Free State totaled 102.5 points and LHS 94.55. Scores for SM East and North were not available. Zaitz scored 34.05 in the all-around. Teammate Grace Bartle was second in 34.0.

the last 10 years they’ve been here. It’s meant a lot to these families. “They are doing more than just helping win basketball games. They are helping serve a lot of people in need.” For information on the golf tournament and party at Maceli’s, check out the website or call Joe Reitz at 785-331-5024. O

do that, then we can win some games,” the senior QB and free safety said. Thompson said the Lions aren’t as good as they want to be yet, particularly on offense. “We can’t get down in the red zone and not get a touchdown,” Thompson said, referring to three such occasions in the final five minutes against SMW. “It killed us on Friday night.” Obviously, the blown chances and the loss disappointed Wedd, but he said Strauss’s 195 passing yards in the pouring rain impressed him, and the Lions have responded at practices, demonstrating their character. “We’ve got a pretty high ceiling,” Wedd said.

Wyatt agreed: “People are expecting more from us now that they’ve seen what we’ve done.” What Lisher saw on tape was execution in the rain and mud by Free State’s offense last week. He admitted learning little about the passing game — senior quarterback Kyle McFarland completed one of his three attempts as FSHS protected the ball — but neither defense nor the running game (219 rushing yards between Cobbs, McFarland, Joe Dineen, Demarko Bobo and Stan Skwarlo) was an issue. “I thought we played pretty physical,” Lisher said, “and that’s what we’re gonna have to do this week with Shawnee Mission West.”

a little tired from being out of shape a little bit.” While Lawrence had played just one match (an Aug. 28 dual loss at Blue Valley Northwest) prior to the quad, ONW came in with a 3-1 mark (its only loss coming to 5A’s top team, Bishop Miege). As good as Lawrence looked in its 25-15, 25-9 victory over Shawnee Mission West and a 25-19, 25-19 sweep of Shawnee Mission South, the Lions weren’t exactly in midseason form as far as fitness goes. “It takes a lot of energy to play three matches in a row, and we’re not used to that very much yet,” May said after distributing 34 assists in three matches. Still, the Lions nearly stormed back to take Game 2 against ONW after seven Caitlin Broadwell kills, aces from May, Monica Howard and Caroline Dykes and blocks from Brianna Anderson, Howard and Dykes helped them take the first game. They cut a six-point deficit to 21-19, thanks in large part to relentless digging from libero Zoe Reed, Broadwell, May and Howard. But ONW scored four quick points to finish the second game and put LHS away in the third. Broadwell, a junior out-

side hitter who had 27 kills on the evening, said Northwest was strong enough to counter Lawrence’s fight. “They’re huge. They put up a great block,” she said. “There were times that we couldn’t get around them, and I think that’s what hurt us the most.” Still, Lawrence’s effort pleased Magnuson, who said every player helped out on the 2-1 night. “I just think it was good competition,” the coach said. “It was a great game, an intense game, and the girls played extremely hard. We didn’t come out on top, but that’s OK. They played well.” After the Lions’ first Sunflower League matches of the season, Broadwell expected she and her teammates won’t slow down as easily as the season goes on. “I’m really excited because we have so much potential and so much to work on that we’re gonna be getting better,” the junior said. Magnuson said the LHS players are smart and determined, and if they get another chance to play top teams at the end of the season, their early-season issues will be long gone. “When we get down to that third game,” she said, “we’re gonna have a lot more gas in the tank.” LHS will play Saturday at the Shawnee Mission South tournament.

OLATHE — Free State High’s volleyball team ran its record to 5-0 with three victories Thursday night at Olathe South. The Firebirds defeated Olathe North, 25-16, 25-12; Olathe South, 18-25, 25-13, 25-23; and Shawnee Mission North, 25-10, 25-9. FSHS coach Nancy Hopkins said she was particularly impressed with the Firebirds’ comeback victory against Olathe South. Hopkins cited junior


punt-block team during his first practice as a freshman. Though Ford was a backup receiver during his first game at Arizona Western, he still was able to block a punt. Now, his KU career has started the same way. “To me, I take it as just as good of a reward as it would be as making a game-winning catch, a game-winning touchdown if I were to be playing receiver,” Ford said. “It’s still a game-changing play, regardless of what position you’re in.” Ford says one of the key for him is paying attention to the long snapper. Just before a punt, the snapper typically raises his hands high before releasing the ball, and Ford tries to time his rush accordingly. The receiver started working with the first unit on special teams during the third day of practices at KU. “On his recruiting trip, Morgan Knapp for her I think he told me he has play in the quadrangular. eight blocked punts in junior college, so he made sure I knew that,” KU Seabury sweeps special teams coordinator Bowen said with a Wathena Riverside Clint smile. “He actually is pretWATHENA — Seabury ty good at it.

The Ty McKinney Watch is over. Kansas University football coach Charlie Weis announced Thursday afternoon that McKinney, the 6-foot-3, 310-pound junior-college defensive tackle from Trinity Valley CC in Texas who was expected to report to campus today, would wait until January to enroll at KU. “After discussing this matter with Ty McKinney, he has decided to wait,” Weis said in a release. “He will take his last final exam (today) and believes that any attempt to catch up academically at KU would be futile.” Originally slated to report to KU in early June, McKinney’s arrival was pushed back, first to July 1 and later to early August because of a snag in

the grading system for the summer class he was taking. “Ty has three years to play two, which means when he enrolls in January, he would then have two years of eligibility to be played in two years,” Weis said. “Ty intends to take extra classes at a junior college in preparation for January. Per Ty’s request, I will not respond to questions on this matter moving forward.” Although McKinney likely would have battled for playing time immediately, the Jayhawks appear to have quality depth and talent on the D-Line without him. During last week’s victory against South Dakota State, KU used nine different players on the defensive line, including five who played on the interior. KU (1-0) will play host to Rice (0-1) at 2:30 p.m. Saturday at Memorial Stadium.

wide, SDSU punter Ethan Sawyer was forced to move a step closer to Ford. That also changed Ford’s angle to the football. “In practice, we work on the aiming points: where (the punter) would kick the ball from,” Ford said. “I was going there, and I got off low, so my eyes didn’t come up until a little bit late. “When I realized he was a little bit left of where he usually is, I kind of went past him a little bit.” Ford was still able to reach back with his left arm to block the punt. He also has developed a bruise this week near his left ribcage, most likely left from Sawyer’s kicking foot. After scooping up the ball, Ford was denied a touchdown by two SDSU players, who tackled him at the SDSU seven-yard line. Bowen was pumped after the deflection. “When I ran to the sideline, he was just cheering me on,” Ford said. “I can’t say exactly what he said on tape, but it was great.” KU’s two blocked punts Saturday were more than the Jayhawks have had in the last three seasons combined. KU blocked one punt last year and failed to block a kick or punt in both 2009 and 2010. During a team meeting on Sunday, KU coach Charlie Weis told his players that when teams block two punts in a game, they win 80 percent of the time. “He’s been coaching for 33 years, and he’s been at the highest level,” Ford said. “Anything he says about football and statistics, I have no choice but to believe.”

Texas rallies from three-run deficit for 5-4 victory KANSAS CITY, MO. (AP) — Ian Kinsler hit a leadoff triple in the 10th inning and scored on Michael Young’s single to lift the Texas Rangers over the Kansas City Royals, 5-4, on Thursday night. Josh Hamilton and Adrian Beltre hit back-toback homers in the fourth to help the AL West leaders overcome a 3-0 deficit. The Rangers (82-55) moved a season-high 27 games above .500 and own the best record in franchise history after 137 games. They won their sixth straight series and upped their division lead to 51⁄2 games over idle Oakland. Mike Adams (4-3) allowed one hit in a scoreless ninth. Joe Nathan earned his 30th save in 31 tries, converting his 28th consecutive opportunity since a blown save on April 11. It was the righthander’s 39th career save against Kansas City. Greg Holland (6-4) took the loss. Royals starter Luke Hochevar took a 3-0 lead into the fourth and retired his first 10 batters before Young’s single. Four pitches later the score was tied after Hamilton and Beltre hit consecutive home runs for the fourth time this season and second on this road trip. Hamilton tops the majors with 39 homers and is tied with Detroit’s Miguel Cabrera for the RBI lead with 116. Beltre, who has 30 home runs, has been the hottest hitter in the majors over the past 17 games with 11 homers, 21 RBIs, 16 runs and a .435 batting average. Hochevar, who is 0-4 with a 5.74 ERA in seven starts since a July 31 victory, was pulled with one out in the seventh when the Rangers went ahead 4-3. Geovany Soto’s double scored David Murphy, who had singled. Kelvin Herrera replaced

TEXAS’ JOSH HAMILTON, RIGHT, CELEBRATES WITH THIRD-BASE COACH Dave Anderson after hitting a two-run home run against Kansas City. The Rangers defeated the Royals, 5-4 in 10 innings, Thursday night at Kauffman Stadium in Kansas City, Mo. Hochevar and on the next pitch induced Craig Gentry to ground into an inning-ending double play. Scott Feldman, who is 0-5 in his past six starts, left with a 4-3 lead, but the Texas bullpen failed to hold it for even one batter. After Feldman retired the leadoff hitter in the seventh, manager Ron Washington summoned left-hander Michael Kirkman to face Eric Hosmer, who homered on a 3-1 pitch. Jeff Francoeur, who entered batting just .128 with no extra-base hits and one RBI in 14 games, homered in the second inning off Feldman. Alex Gordon stroked a run-scoring triple in the third and scored on Salvador Perez’s single. Perez extended his hitting streak

to 11 games, matching his BOX SCORE career best.

Baltimore back in tie with Yanks The Associated Press

American League Orioles 10, Yankees 6 BALTIMORE — Mark Reynolds hit two of Baltimore’s season-high six home runs, and the Orioles climbed back into a first-place tie with the Yankees in the AL East by defeating New York on Thursday night before a euphoric sellout crowd at Camden Yards. Adam Jones’ leadoff homer in the eighth inning off David Robertson (1-6) put Baltimore ahead 7-6 after the Yankees rallied from a five-run deficit in the top half. Matt Wieters followed with a single and Reynolds hit a drive into the left-field seats. New York

National League Braves 1, Rockies 0 ATLANTA — Tim Hudson pitched seven scoreless innings, and Atlanta posted its second straight 1-0 victory over Colorado, winning both times with an unearned run. This was an especially galling loss for the Rockies. Juan Francisco raced home with the lone run when Rockies starter Jhoulys Chacin (2-5) dropped a routine throw back to the mound from his catcher. Chacin glanced over toward third before making the catch, the ball bouncing off the side of his glove and winding up between the mound and second base. Francisco alertly spotted the miscue and took off for the plate, making it with a headfirst slide. Colorado

Nationals 9, Cubs 2 WASHINGTON — Adam LaRoche added to his home run tear with a tworun shot, and Washington beat Chicago in a fightfilled game to finish a lopsided four-game sweep. The trouble started with a testy exchange between Cubs bench coach Jamie Quirk and Nationals third base coach Bo Porter in the fifth inning. Quirk shouted from the dugout toward third base and Porter walked over to the railing, jawing and pointing his finger. The benches and bullpens emptied, but there was no pushing or shoving. Quirk was ejected before play resumed. Chicago

Dear Annie: My older sister, “Susie,” is 33 and has been receiving financial support from my parents for more than a decade. They give her money outright and also pay her car insurance, health insurance and other bills. Susie does not work. She’s in a master’s program, but it is unclear whether she will finish. My mother believes she needs to help Susie, as she has had mental illness issues throughout her adulthood. I am not upset that Susie is receiving money from my parents. It also doesn’t bother me that I am not likely to receive similar assistance. But I worry that my parents are giving Susie no reason to finish her degree or pursue a job. I consider it enabling. On several occasions, Susie has maxed out her credit cards, and my mother paid those off. My parents do not have

the money to continue doing this. Is it appropriate to speak with them about this? — A Sister Who Doesn’t Know What To Do Dear Sister: We don’t know the extent of Susie’s “mental illness issues” and whether or not she is capable of holding down a job or finishing her degree. Your parents believe they need to help her until she can support herself, and that pursuing a master’s degree will allow her to find gainful employment. We hope they

Networks join in cancer fight Networks cast aside competition for an hour to co-broadcast the annual special “Stand Up to Cancer ’12” (7 p.m., ABC, CBS, Fox, NBC, HBO, ION, LMN, Showtime, Starz, TBS, VH1). Look for speeches, anecdotes and pleas for contributions and action from celebrity presenters, including show producer Gwyneth Paltrow, Julia Roberts, Samuel L. Jackson, Jeremy Renner and Seth Rogen. Musical guests include Alicia Keys, Taylor Swift, Tim McGraw and Coldplay (via remote from Sweden). The “Stand Up” charity promises that 100 percent of all public donations will go directly to cancer research.

“Great Performances” (8 p.m., PBS, check local listings) presents “Paul McCartney’s Live Kisses,” a documentary look at the former Beatle’s visit to the Capitol Records building in Los Angeles, where he recorded an album of musical standards from the first half of the 20th century. The “Live Kisses” concert captures McCartney singing such chestnuts as “Home,” ‘‘More I Cannot Wish You,” ‘‘Always,” ‘‘Bye Bye Blackbird” and “I’m Gonna Sit Right Down and Write Myself a Letter.” McCartney’s return to Capitol is both fitting and ironic. When Capitol Records distributed the Beatles’ records in the United States, the band’s unprecedented popularity all but eclipsed the label’s roster of more established artists, including Nat King Cole, who recorded American standards. Furthermore, the success of singer-songwriters like McCartney, John Lennon and Bob Dylan ushered in an era when it became all but mandatory for popular artists to sing their own material instead of interpreting the work of professional lyricists and composers, as did Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett, Ella Fitzgerald and other artists in the pre-Beatles era. That said, McCartney’s “Kisses” is hardly the first album of old standards by a once popular rock, pop or country star. In fact, these efforts have become a common midcareer or late-career pit stop, just one step removed from recording a Christmas album.

Tonight’s other highlights

Kane purges his political machine on “Boss” (8 p.m., Starz).

A grandmother has a black widow’s touch on “Deadly Women” (10 p.m., ID).

“Lewis Black: In God We Rust” (11 p.m., Comedy Central) presents the “Daily Show” contributor’s caustic take on social and political matters.

BIRTHDAYS Singer Gloria Gaynor is 63. Rock singer Chrissie Hynde (The Pretenders) is 61. Actress Julie Kavner is 61. Actor Corbin Bernsen is 58. Actor Michael Emerson is 58.

are right. While you do not get to decide how your parents spend their money, you can bring up this subject and ask whether they have made arrangements for Susie’s care after they are gone. Dear Annie: I have been married for 20 years to the youngest of seven siblings. Whenever a niece or nephew has married or had children, the aunts (myself included) have given a shower. The problem is, I’m never asked. I’m just told. Once, I didn’t even know until I received an invitation with my name listed. Am I crazy to think that my husband’s sisters should ask whether I’m interested in hosting a shower? I’m expected to make food, clean up and share expenses, but never given the opportunity to give any input. The few times I tried, I was completely ignored. To make matters worse, my husband’s family be-

lieves they need to invite a huge number of people, which means a hall must be rented and the total cost becomes prohibitive. We have a congenial but not close relationship with his siblings. How do I get the point across that I don’t want to be a hostess without completely offending the family? — Unwilling in Nebraska Dear Nebraska: We won’t get into the etiquette of family members hosting a shower or having one so large that you must rent a hall. They aren’t likely to pay attention to those things. Find a time when there are no upcoming events scheduled to talk to the sister-in-law with whom you are closest. Ask them sweetly to please consult you before assuming you will take on these responsibilities. (You may need to remind them more than once.)

could have difficulty staying on task, especially if it has to do with anything except the upcoming weekend. You need time off from your routine to continue being creative and vibrant. Tonight: Be a wild thing. Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)  If you can stay close to home and do what you enjoy, most certainly make those plans. An offer comes to you as a result of your own positive attitude. Tonight: Order in. Get cozy. — The astrological forecast should be read for entertainment only.
