City to consider ‘gender identity’ as protected class By Chad Lawhorn


Lawrence city commissioners now are ready to begin a debate about whether transsexuals and others who don’t identify with the gender of their birth deserve new protections from discrimination.

Commissioners at their Tuesday evening meeting are scheduled to consider adding “gender identity” as a protected class that can’t be discriminated against in matters of employment, housing and public accommodations. “Part of what we’re trying to do here is send a message of tolerance,” said Mayor Aron

Cromwell, who is supporting the ordinance. “Lawrence is a tolerant community, and here’s an example.” But expect a debate at City Hall about whether adding legal protections for transsexuals, transvestites, cross-dressers and others who consider themselves to be transgendered is an act of

tolerance or an overreaching regulation by government. James Dunn, a local landlord who also is a member of the city’s Human Relations Commission, said he has not seen strong evidence that transgendered individuals are being discriminated against in the city. “I heard people struggling with

their own internal self, but I didn’t hear discrimination,” Dunn said. “I just did not see anything that rose to the level that required us to put in a whole new ordinance, especially given the amount of education it would require and the confusion it may create.”

Officials happy Big 12 intact for now

By Scott Rothschild

TOPEKA — With the Big 12 realignment storm apparently subsiding, higher education officials in Kansas on Wednesday looked like folks climbing out of a cellar — relieved and happy, but wary of the possibility of more bad weather. “We’re glad the Big 12 is staying together and that KU and K-State stay together,” said Board of Regents Chairman Ed McKechnie. Texas A&M’s intention to leave for the Southeastern Conference led to weeks of speculation that Texas, Oklahoma, Texas Tech and Oklahoma State were going to join the Pac-12. But the Pac-12 announced late Tuesday it would stay at 12 members. And Texas started making sounds that it was willing to share some TV revenue with other conference members, although none from its new Longhorn Network deal with ESPN. During the realignmentrumor drama, Gov. Sam Brownback, McKechnie and university officials all publicly stated they wanted the remaining Big 12 schools to stay together, and for KU and KSU to stay together in the league. And that’s how it has apparently turned out, at least for the near term.

THE SKY FILLS WITH DUST AS CREWS cut late-season corn Tuesday in a field east of Lawrence, with Fraser Hall in the background. Some farmers, along with Sen. Pat Roberts, are concerned that the Environmental Protection Agency’s routine five-year review of the Clean Air Act may result in stricter standards on dust.

Senator says regulation unnecessary; agency says farmers needn’t worry By Christine Metz

From driving down rural roads to cattle stomping around the feedlot, dust is a common byproduct of farm life in Kansas. And that’s exactly why the state’s agricultural organizations are so concerned about the Environmental Protection Agency’s review of the Clean Air Act, which, among other things, stipulates how much coarse particulate matter (aka dust) can be in the air. Last week, U.S. Sen. Pat Roberts, R-Kan., cospon-

sored a bill that would prohibit the EPA from regulating farm dust. In a press release, Roberts said the regulation “defies common sense.” To be clear, the EPA hasn’t proposed any changes to the limits of coarse particulate matter that can be in the air. Right now the standard is set at 150 micrograms per cubic meter, which can’t be exceeded more than once a year over an average of three years. If it is exceeded, states have to submit an implementation plan that details what steps they will

take to reduce the pollutants. The Clean Air Act has been around for more than 40 years, and the 150 micrograms per cubic meter standard has been on the books since 1987. It’s a limit the state of Kansas has never exceeded. What has farmers and Roberts concerned is the EPA’s routine five-year re-

view of the Clean Air Act standards. The Clean Air Scientific Advisory Committee, an independent advisory board, recommended that the EPA revise its current coarse particulate matter standard to between 65 to 75 micrograms per cubic meter. And that’s a standard that just an average windy day in Dodge City could exceed, said Allie Devine, vice president of the Kansas Livestock Association. “We estimate most of the western United States would exceed (national air standards) if the new lower

standard for dust is adopted,” Devine said. The Kansas Livestock Association has joined a coalition of other industries in the western half of the country to study the implications of such a standard and the health effects of dust. “Here’s the kicker,” Devine said “The Clean Air Act requires there to be a health effect. And we don’t believe there is substantial data, or actually there is very little data, that supports the health effects of

Thieves are targeting catalytic converters, Lawrence police warn By George Diepenbrock

When Amber Seymour tried to leave work the evening of Aug. 11 at the Lawrence Cancer Center, the Tonganoxie resident turned on her car and noticed it sounded much louder than normal.

She got out and looked underneath her 2004 Chevrolet Cavalier. “My entire exhaust system was laying on the ground,” said the Tonganoxie resident who works for Dr. Darren Klish’s office at Lawrence Memorial Hospital. Someone had stolen the car’s catalytic converter

DEATHS EUGENE SIMS Funeral services for Eugene Sims, 43, Lawrence, are pending and will be announced by Warren-McElwain Mortuary.

He died Wednesday, Sept. 21, 2011, at Select Specialty Hospital in Kansas City, Kan.

KENNETH M. PETERSON Kenneth M. Peterson, age 64, of Manhattan, died September 19, 2011, at his residence. He was born July 22, 1947, in Colby, Kansas, the son of Ernest Milton and Doris Ruby (Marcuson) Peterson. Ken grew up in Atwood, Kansas on the family farm. He graduated from Kansas State University in 1969 with a degree in Biochemistry. He was a member of ROTC during college and served two years in the United States Army during the Vietnam Conflict and was discharged at the rank of Captain. Following his military service he returned to Atwood to farm with his family. He began working as a crop adjuster for Rain and Hail Crop Insurance Services and later became a Field Supervisor for the state of Kansas and moved to Manhattan in 1999. His job afforded him the opportunity to travel the state and enjoy the wide open spaces. In his youth, he was a member of the Kansas Young Farmers organization. He loved to fish, hunt, and spend time with his family. His greatest joy was taking his grandchildren fishing. On January 29, 1967, in Kansas City, Missouri,


The issue of a new law has been brewing in Lawrence for more than two years. But thus far it has met resistance. The city’s Human Relations Commission, which deals with matters of discrimination in the city, voted in May of 2009 that the city should not create a new ordinance. The Human Relations Commission’s vote, though, is just an advisory one, and city commissioners were left with the final decision. City commissioners, however, never took the issue up. Cromwell on Wednesday conceded that was because commissioners did not want the topic to become a major issue in City Commission campaigns, which began in early 2010. “It would have been a very poor topic to have right in front of an election,” Cromwell said. “In general, these sort of single-issue type of elections aren’t good for a town.” But Cromwell said now is the time to have the discussion. Kansas would be the only community in the state to have a local antidiscrimination law addressing gender identity. Manhattan briefly passed a law, but it was repealed earlier this year when a new slate of city commissioners took office. Other regional communities — Kansas City, Mo. and Boulder, Colo. are among the nearest — do have gender identity laws, in addition to multiple communities across the country. Cromwell said the law is needed because currently an employer or a landlord can take action against a person simply because they identify their gender in a way that is contrary to how they were born. “This is really more of a right to work issue for these people,” Cromwell said. “They just want to have the right to work and live in town like everybody else. As it stands right now, if you choose not to rent to someone, you can say ‘I don’t like the fact you’re transgendered so I’m not going to rent to you.’” The new law would make it illegal to discriminate in matters of employment,

Additional survivors include his two children: Shannon Kimball and her husband Jason of Lawrence, KS, and William Peterson and his wife Diane of Overland Park, KS; his mother, Doris of Atwood; two brothers: Wayne Peterson and his wife Ardis of Junction City, KS, and Gregory Peterson and his wife Brenda of Atwood, KS; and three grandchildren: Ian and Logan Kimball and Sydney Peterson. Ken was preceded in death by his father in 1989. Cremation is planned with memorial services to be held at 2:00 P.M. Saturday at the YorgensenMeloan-Londeen Funeral Chapel with Pastor Pat Weyrauch officiating. Online condolences may be left for the family through the funeral home website at www.yml Memorial Contributions may be made to the Tuttle Creek Lake Association Youth Fishing Clinic.

“That is ideal for us,” said KU Chancellor Bernadette Gray-Little. She said staying in the Big 12 was important because being in a less prominent league may have reduced KU’s visibility to some potential students. Resolution of the issue, McKechnie said, “lets us focus back on academics. I feel better today than I have in five weeks.” The regents went into a 30-minute closed session with Gray-Little, KU Athletic Director Sheahon Zenger, their counterparts at K-State, and attorneys from the two schools.


large particulate matter.” While the smaller particulate matter can more easily escape into the lungs, Devine said the larger stuff mainly stays in the nose. According to the EPA, scientific studies have linked exposure to coarse particles to increased respiratory symptoms in children and to hospital admissions or even premature death for people with heart or lung disease. Furthermore the EPA contends the monitoring requirements don’t target rural areas. In Kansas, 10 air monitors measure coarse particulate matter. Four of those monitors are in the Wichita area, another two are in the Kansas City metro area, and the rest are in Topeka, Dodge City, Goodland and Chanute. Kansas has never exceeded

Theft so many occur in a short period of time. The thieves also apparently were targeting Chevrolet Cavaliers because they were familiar with them, and they probably were looking for vehicles that were parked and left undisturbed for several hours. “We ask people to be vigilant in watching parking lots for any suspicious people walking around,” said Sarna, who also encouraged people to install vehicle security systems. He did say police were trying to determine if there is a

McKechnie said the schools are reviewing their contracts with the Big 12, but he wouldn’t elaborate any further. He also wouldn’t comment on whether Big 12 Commissioner Dan Beebe should keep his job. “I want people who solve problems,” he said. He said the Big 12 schools need to increase their commitments to each other, especially in building academic ties. He noted no Big 10 school thought about leaving that conference. “That’s what we need to get the Big 12 schools to be,” he said. “I realize that in this conversation, football is king, basketball matters, but most importantly what matters is the academics.”

And, he said, it wasn’t a fight that KU or K-State wanted. “The people who all were fighting are the people who have the revenue. The people who don’t have the revenue weren’t fighting,” he said. Libby Johnson, president of the KU student body, said the developments concerning the Big 12 have been a major topic of discussion on campus. “The student body is definitely concerned about it and paying attention,” Johnson said. Johnson said she hoped KU stayed in the Big 12. “The Big 12 has served KU students well,” she said.

the standard. And according to the EPA, the vast majority of states who do have to reduce their emissions focus on pollutants from industrial and construction settings. “There are no plans to regulate the dust from any farm,” said Kris Lancaster, an EPA Region 7 spokesman. “The focus is and consistently has been in urban areas where most of the air pollution is.” Steve Baccus, a farmer near Salina and president of the Kansas Farm Bureau, scoffs at some of the proposals he has heard for curbing the dust from farming. They include speed bumps in feedlots, watering country roads, putting a diaper-like contraption on combines, lowering the gears on farm equipment so they go slower and limiting how many times fields can be tilled. For Baccus they would all add more money and time to his farming operation. “For some of this, there is no common sense involved,” he said.

But Lancaster said he doesn’t know of any such recommendations that have come from the EPA. “We haven’t proposed any such ridiculous things,” he said. As for Roberts’ proposed bill, dubbed The Farm Dust Regulation Prevention Act, it would stop the EPA from imposing more stringent standards for one year. It would also give state and municipalities the ability to regulate the issue before the federal government. And before the EPA could impose stricter standards, it would have to prove there were substantial health effects from dust and that those concerns outweighed economic ones. “Our producers deserve respect and appreciation from the EPA, not costly and redundant regulation,” Roberts said in a press release.

Lenexa Public Information Officer Dan Friesen said so far the suspects were linked only to cases in Lenexa, and he said they were arrested more than a week before the most recent Lawrence thefts. Seymour said the crime hits victims hard because it damages vehicles and can be a hassle to fix. She estimated her family spent about $330 on a new converter that her husbanded welded onto the car. But she said most victims likely have to take their cars to a repair shop where it costs more. Rick Bellinger, owner of

housing, and public accommodations, which includes allowing people to be served at restaurants, hotels and other businesses open to the public. Cromwell expects significant opposition to the proposal. In April, about 50 people attended a meeting to express concerns about the gender identity proposal. Representatives from the Alliance Defense Fund, Concerned Women for America, and the Kansas Family Policy Council attended the meeting. Attempts on Wednesday to reach a local organizer of that meeting were unsuccessful. But Cromwell said he had received multiple emails from individuals who objected to the proposal on religious and moral grounds. Scott Criqui, chairman of the city’s Human Relations Commission and a supporter of the proposal, said he expects transgendered people who have suffered from discrimination to make their voices heard too. “Discrimination toward the transgendered community happens frequently, but most people are smart enough that they don’t say you can’t work here because you’re transgendered,” Criqui said. “But hopefully this ordinance would give people some leverage to say ‘I think the real reason you are firing me is this.’” City commissioners haven’t yet released a draft of any proposed ordinance. A draft is expected to be released by this afternoon. Commissioners meet at 6:35 p.m. Tuesday at City Hall.

Americans freed from Iran prison After more than two years in Iranian custody, two Americans convicted as spies took their first steps toward home Wednesday as they bounded down from a private jet and into the arms of family for a joyful reunion in the Gulf state of Oman. The families called this “the best day of our lives,” and President Barack Obama said their release — under a $1 million bail-for-freedom deal — “wonderful news.” The release capped complicated diplomatic maneuvers over a week of confusing signals by Iran’s leadership on the fate of Josh Fattal and Shane Bauer. Although the fate of the two gripped America, it was on the periphery of the larger showdowns between Washington and Tehran that include Iran’s nuclear program and its ambitions to widen military and political influence in the Middle East and beyond. But — for a moment at least — U.S. officials may be adding words of thanks in addition to their calls for alarm over Iran. 2 | GEORGIA

Regents question funding request KU seeks $5M per year for new med school building By Scott Rothschild

The Legislature and executive branch are looking to us to make a realistic reTOPEKA — Several members quest. I want to make sure that what we of the Kansas Board of Regents request, we get.” on Wednesday said they want

to reduce a proposed funding increase request for higher education before it gets to Gov. Sam Brownback’s desk. And that could affect two major initiatives sought by Kansas University. “The Legislature and executive branch are looking to us to make a realistic request,” said Regent Kenny Wilk of Lansing. “I want to make sure that what

— Regent Kenny Wilk of Lansing we request, we get.” The board had a wide-ranging discussion on finance issues in preparation for a vote today on a funding recommendation, which will then be forwarded to Brownback’s budget office. KU is seeking a new appropriation of $5 million per year from

the state to help build a $78 million medical education building at the KU School of Medicine. The current building, opening in 1976, is obsolete, decrepit and too small, officials said. This year, KU turned away 100 qualified Kansas applicants because it did not have enough space, of-

ficials said. The proposed building “is absolutely essential to us,” said Barbara Atkinson, the executive vice chancellor of the KU Medical Center. In addition to the proposed state appropriation, KU intends to pay for the building with private funds, tuition and other resources that will go toward retiring a 30-year bond.

Man executed after stay denied Georgia executed Troy Davis on Wednesday night for the murder of an off-duty police officer, a crime he denied committing right to the end as supporters around the world mourned and declared that an innocent man was put to death. Defiant to the end, he told relatives of Mark MacPhail that his 1989 slaying was not his fault. “I did not have a gun,” he insisted. “For those about to take my life,” he told prison officials, “may God have mercy on your souls. May God bless your souls.” Davis was declared dead at 11:08. The lethal injection began about 15 minutes earlier, after the Supreme Court rejected an 11th-hour request for a stay. The court did not comment on its order, which came about four hours after it received the request and more than three hours after the planned execution time. Though Davis’ attorneys said seven of nine key witnesses against him disputed all or parts of their testimony, state and federal judges repeatedly ruled against granting him a new trial. As the court losses piled up Wednesday, his offer to take a polygraph test was rejected and the pardons board refused to give him one more hearing. 3 | UNITED NATIONS

Palestinians pressed to drop bid Furiously scrambling to head off a U.N. showdown, the United States warned world leaders Wednesday that trying to create a Palestinian nation by simple decree instead of through hard negotiations was bound to fail as a shortcut to peace with Israel. Europeans worked to defuse the dispute, too, France urging new talks within a month. Undeterred, Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas pressed toward a formal bid for U.N. recognition that could bring the issue to a head on Friday. Addressing the U.N., President Barack Obama and French President Nicolas Sarkozy offered different solutions to defuse the diplomatic crisis. Sarkozy would have the Palestinians seek a lesser form of recognition at the U.N., while joining new talks with Israel. 4 | WASHINGTON, D.C.

Fed reveals $400B booster plan The Federal Reserve said Wednesday it will shuffle $400 billion of its portfolio to try to drive down long-term interest rates and get the economy going. But economists doubted it would do much good, the stock market sold off, and the Fed itself was unusually divided over the strategy. Lowering interest rates makes it cheaper for people and companies to borrow money and spend it throughout the economy, which has slowed sharply more than two years after the Great Recession. Consumer spending makes up most of the nation’s economic activity. But rates are already at historic lows. Americans, still feeling insecure about the future, might not be willing to take on more debt, even at lower rates. Others see no reason to jump into the housing market when prices are still falling. Others can’t get credit. “Frankly, I don’t see it having any meaningful impact on the economy,” said Bernard Baumohl, chief global economist with the Economic Outlook Group. “What the Fed did today was a distraction.”

On Sept. 30, Dr. Scott Solcher, the Kansas Dialysis Services Home Dialysis’ medical director as well as the medical director of the Lawrence KDS unit, and Stan Langhofer, administrator and CEO of KDS, will participate in the third Tour de Dialysis to raise money to benefit the Kansas Dialysis Patient Assistance Fund.

Lawrence doctor to bike 100 miles to raise money for kidney patients By Karrey Britt

Lawrence resident Bill James, 39, is hooked up to a machine three times a week for about four hours. He sits in a recliner while the machine filters his blood. He bides time by watching television, reading a book, listening to music or visiting with staff and other patients. He said those relationships have been invaluable during a difficult time. “Some days you feel better than others. Mentally, it has been tough,” he said. On Feb. 11, his life changed overnight. He went to sleep feeling fine and then his wife, Teddi, found him on the floor the next morning. “I just woke up in the emergency room and was pretty sick,” he said. Doctors told him that his kidneys were failing because

of diabetes and high blood pressure; he had only 25 percent kidney function. The illness left him so weak that he couldn’t pick up his 3-year-old daughter, Leatha, and so he had to quit his full-time job at a goat dairy farm. For the first time in 20 years, he wasn’t working. “I felt kind of useless,” he said. Within three months, he began dialysis at the Kansas Dialysis Services unit in Lawrence Memorial Hospital, and he’s slowly gaining his strength. He hopes to get his first disability check in October and he’s filling out paperwork to have a kidney-pancreas transplant. James said the bills began to stack up this summer, and he and his wife were having trouble making house and car payments. He was grateful to receive $500 from the Kansas Dialysis Patient Assistance Fund that was started three Please see RIDE, page 4A

Next week, Kansas University will celebrate homecoming for the 99th time with a wide variety of games, competitions and other events, culminating in the annual Homecoming Parade Oct. 1 before the 11 a.m. KU-Texas Tech football game. “The goal of homecoming is to welcome alumni back to campus and celebrate the university with the university community here in Lawrence, including students, alumni and fans,” said Stefani Gerson, who works at the KU Alumni Association and serves as an adviser to the Homecoming Steering Committee, which is composed of 16 KU students who plan the year’s events. The annual parade is scheduled to begin at 8 a.m. and will run from the Adams Alumni Center to the Chi Omega Fountain on Jayhawk Boulevard. Several new events are geared around this year’s theme, “From Lawrence With Love.” Andy Kriegh, a senior from Lawrence who serves as co-publicity chairman for the Homecoming Steering Committee, said that a day focusing on community service was scheduled for Sunday, featuring an event where community members can send a letter to troops serving overseas. Jayhawk postcards will be available at the event, Kriegh said. The event will be paired with a “Stuff the Bus” nonperishable food drive event at Dillons, 1015 W. 23rd St. “We just wanted to share our appreciation for the city of Lawrence also, which makes such a Please see HOMECOMING, page 4A

the day, said, “I’m not sure if we rolled this out the right way. I’m not sure yet if I want to send it up and have it shot at.” Vice Chairman Tim Emert of Independence said the governor’s office was interested in the project but wanted to explore a different financing proposal. He said that perhaps the project could be submitted to the budget office later in the year. KU also is seeking a new appropriation of $3 million per year to hire “foundation professors.” KU Provost Jeff Vitter said hiring the prestigious professors will help the university maintain its membership in the Association of American Universities. “We are competing with another 60 uni-


significant contribution to the experience of going to KU,” Kriegh said. On campus, organizations will be competing all week in a variety of events to earn points toward a final award, which will be recognized at the football game. Gerson said that the date for next year’s centennial homecoming celebration has already been set, for the week preceding the Oct. 27, 2012, football game against Texas, unless conference realignment causes a shift in the football schedule. — Higher education reporter Andy Hyland can be reached at 832-6388.

versities that want to join,” he said. On other funding fronts, Regent Fred Logan Jr. of Leawood said the board needed to scale back. Logan said the proposed inflationary increase request of 2.6 percent should be decreased to 1.8 percent, and a $20 million increase for technical schools reduced to $8 million. If the regents ask for the higher amounts, they will be rejected, he said. “I’m the hard-headed realist type,” Logan said. Board members also questioned a request from Kansas State University to expand the College of Veterinary Medicine. But Regent Dan Lykins of Topeka said the 2.6 percent increase for inflation was reasonable given the fact that higher education was cut $100 million two years ago during the recession.

The third annual ride is slated for Sept. 30.

Chapter 5 A Traveling Princess

Last Chapter:! Jack and Mollie’s special glasses enable them to escape an enemy attack on the Kansa village. Their next adventure finds them on a lonely road in the 1930s. They are rescued from a dust storm by the Claybergs, a couple traveling to California, and witness their generosity as they give food to a destitute family. This time the special glasses do nothing, and the twins fear they are stuck in time. Despite the warmth of the sun, Jack felt cold and so nervous that his hands trembled as he took their glasses out of the white cotton sack and handed Mollie her pair. The next instant, his heart leaped with joy as his eyes, looking through the glasses, saw Liberal morph into a modern town and the time machine materialize. They laughed when they stepped inside the time machine and saw flashing across the computer’s screen, the words, Mission delayed: Activation: 11:00 a.m. local time. Jack pointed to a small button, printed with the word delay. “I must have pushed that one, too. I…” “Oh, look!” Mollie interrupted as the now familiar ticking sound began.! “We’re about to go someplace else.”!! “Maybe home,” Jack said.! A wave of homesickness coloring Mollie’s words, she said, “I think it depends on how many more buttons you pushed.” Jack knew he had pushed a lot of buttons, so he wasn’t surprised when once again they were transported back in time. This time the twins stood in the middle of a large encampment of huge canvas-topped wagons stopped for the night.! The sun hung low in the sky and several men stood before cooking fires.! The twins saw no women or children until a merry voice hailed them and a

pretty, young woman came toward them. Beside her, as if serving as her bodyguard, was a big white dog with brown spots. “I didn’t know there were family wagons here,” she said. “Are you with a freight wagon?” “No.” Mollie was amazed that the words she needed came so easily.!! “We’re headed east. Pa’s seeing to our team.”! The woman grinned. “I thought for a moment I’d have to relinquish my title as the first white woman to travel the Santa Fe Trail.”! Mollie blushed and the woman laughed. “Well, maybe you’re not a woman yet, and I am barely so, being just 18.”! She turned to a small tent and said, still smiling, “This is my home away from home. Come, sit with me awhile for I’m quite starved for company.” She introduced herself as Mrs. Samuel Magoffin.! “But do call me Susan,” she said.!

Then she went on to tell Jack and Mollie that she had just come from seeing the quaintest, little post office ever. “See that big old oak tree over there? Well, there’s a small cache at the base of it where travelers can leave letters and other messages to be picked up by folks traveling east.” After discussing the post office tree, Jack asked about the small black carriage he saw behind her tent. “Oh, my wonderful husband has seen to my every need. Besides that carriage and this tent, I also have a driver, my maid and two servant boys. Now I ask you, could even a traveling princess wish for more?”

Mollie shook her head. “It looks so small beside these big freight wagons.” Susan laughed. “And much more comfortable, too.” “You don’t worry about Indians?” Jack asked. “No. In 1825 a council was held with them in that grove of trees over there and they promised to give safe passage for wagons traveling this Santa Fe trail.! This is 1846, so it was twenty-one years ago.” She grinned and added, “Before we three were even born.” Until her husband, who owned several of the freight wagons, returned to their tent for supper, Susan kept the twins entertained with stories of the trip so far and of her family. She was proud that her grandfather, Isaac Shelby, had been the first governor of Kentucky.! As they walked away after meeting Mr. Magoffin, Susan called after them, “I am keeping a diary of this journey and I shall write about meeting you both.” The twins waved, acknowledging her words, and Jack said, “How can we be in her diary, if we aren’t real in her time?” Mollie said, “So we’re real, but we’re not real. That’s weird.” With the coming of darkness, the twins came upon a small canvas-topped wagon. Finding their glasses inside, they knew they would spend the night there.! Curious to know more about this place and about Susan Magoffin, the twins put on the glasses and the lights of present day Council Grove twinkled in the darkness as the wagons vanished and the time machine came into view. From the computer, the twins learned that even though Council Grove wouldn’t become a town until its founder, Seth M. Hays, arrived the next spring, by 1846 it was already a major stopover on the Santa Fe trail.! Heavily traveled by wagons hauling freight, the road stretched from Independence, Missouri, to Santa Fe, New Mexico. They also read that Susan Magoffin had been the first white woman to travel the Santa Fe trail and her diary was considered an important document of that time and place. “Do you think it’s in the Hays library?” Mollie asked. Jack grinned. “I bet you think we’re in it, don’t you?” For an answer, Mollie showed him a sassy face and a quick dart of her tongue. The twins woke at dawn to the noise of men’s voices, horses nickering, and lowing oxen, now yoked to the freight wagons by twos in a team of six or eight pair. The men

walked beside their oxen as they started out, cracking their whips and shouting.!! “Catch up! Catch up!” The words rang through the fresh June morning as the caravan began forming two long lines, wagon wheels creaking and groaning.! Through the dust raised by the freight wagons and the heavy hooves of the ox teams, the twins saw Susan Magoffin’s small carriage traveling across the prairie.! As the last of the wagons rolled away, the twins put on their glasses and were once again back in their own time.! Jack and Mollie were shocked to find the once towering Post Office Oak was now just a very tall stump.! The twins read the history on a sign posted on a building beside it. “It says letters and notes reputedly were left at the base of the tree,” Mollie said. “Probably no one knows for absolute sure,” Jack said. Mollie grinned. “From oak tree to e-mail. I wonder what Susan would have said, if we’d told her about e-mail.” “She wouldn’t have believed us.”! When we get back, I’m going to ask Dad and Mom to add e-mail.” Mollie suddenly felt a shiver of fear.! “If we get back,” she said.

County pumps money into waterline for Berry Plastics warehouse

Is the Legends of the Phog game reserved seating, or first-come first-serve? My tickets have seat numbers printed on them, but I’ve seen them for sale on Craigslist, etc., listed By Mark Fagan as “GA.”


Thursday, September 22, 2011

Douglas County commissioners are ready to pump public money into installation of a new water pipe designed to enable construction and operation of a new warehouse for Berry Plastics northwest of Lawrence. Commissioners approved an agreement Wednesday to finance the installation of waterline along the Farmer’s Turnpike, between East 700 and East 800 roads. The pipe, to be 6 inches COUNTY COMMISSION in diameter, will replace one 4 inches in diameter and be about 5,000 feet long. The line will supply a warehouse now under construction for Berry Plastics, which has a manufacturing complex at the northern edge of Lawrence for making cups and other plastic products. The warehouse will be at 670 N. 1800 Road. Commissioners already had agreed in February to provide $431,000 in incen-

Masonic Temple tax rebate approved Douglas County commissioners agreed Wednesday to give owners of the former Masonic Temple in downtown Lawrence a rebate on their additional property taxes during the next decade, freeing up money to help make the building’s renovation a reality. The county still will receive its full share of the current property taxes paid on the building at 1001 Mass., payments that will not change for the next 10 years. But the property taxes produced by an estimated tives to the warehouse project, expected to result in an additional dozen jobs at Berry Plastics but also open up room for more employees within the main plant. That internal space, in turn, could provide enough room for another production line or other upgrades to keep the complex a major player in Lawrence-area employment for years to come, said Nancy Thellman, county commissioner. “It’ll keep them a viable


$800,000 in upgrades to the building will be rebated following a scheduled already endorsed by Lawrence city commissioners: Consolidated Properties would retain 95 percent of those taxes in the first year, then 90 percent in the second year and on down each year until the rebate was 50 percent in the 10th year. After that, payments on the entire property tax bill would go to local governments in full. The building is to be renovated for use by Maceli’s as a catering and events venue.

BRIEFLY Stabbing suspect misses appearance A 26-year-old Lawrence woman who is accused of stabbing her boyfriend last month failed to show up for court Wednesday and was later arrested in connection with a separate case. District Judge Sally Pokorny on Wednesday issued a bench warrant for Misty Durae Crook after Crook failed to appear in court for a preliminary hearing in her pending aggravated battery case. According to jail records, Lawrence police on Wednesday afternoon arrested Crook at her east Lawrence residence on charges of vehicle burglary and possession of stolen property. Sgt.

driver of a black 1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee, David V. Finlay, 49, swerved to avoid hitting a deer and lost control of the vehicle. Finlay was taken to Kansas University Hospital with what appeared to be head and ear lacerations, according to the officer.

Alcohol may have been a factor in the crash and test results are pending, according to the sheriff’s office.

The county’s investment in the line will come out of the $431,000, a fund also expected to finance road improvements associated with the project. A grant from the state also will help pay for the waterline, Thellman said.

Lawrence makes final press to win Take Charge Challenge Energy-saving contest to end next week By Christine Metz

on the number of changes per capita, which means Lawrence has to change far more than Manhattan to account for its larger population.

EcoKat, meet Change5. With the end of Take Charge Challenge approaching, Lawrence is launching a Hail Mary media blitz. Thanks in part to the (mostly bad) publicity of Kansas State University’s environmentally friendly mascot EcoKat, Manhattan is leading in the energy-saving competition. Manhattan’s narrow lead comes down to the number of light bulbs each of the city’s residents has switched from the energy-consuming incandescent bulbs to the more efficient compact fluorescent light bulbs. To pull ahead, Lawrence is making one last ditch effort to encourage/beg its residents to switch to CFL light bulbs and record them at That effort is called Change5 and here is what you need to know about it:

5 The number of light bulbs each Lawrence resident is being asked to change from incandescent to the energy efficient compact fluorescent ones.


$75 How much money the average household will save on its annual energy bill if the five most used bulbs in the home are switched to CFLs, according to the U.S. Department of Energy. 8 The number of coffee shops Take Charge Challenge representatives will be at Thursday morning to hand out free CFL bulbs with the purchase of coffee. Look for them between 7:30 a.m. and 9:30 a.m. at Starbucks, Dunn Brothers Coffee, Signs of Life, and multiple locations of Z’s Divine Espresso and Scooter’s Coffee House. 28,365 The number of lighting switches Lawrence has made to date, according to 31,132 The number of lighting switches Manhattan has made to date. The winner is based

9 days How much time is left in the Take Charge Challenge, which ends Sept. 30. Right now, Lawrence is lagging behind Manhattan in the university division of the challenge. Residents are being asked to register any light bulbs they have switched to CFLs in 2011 that haven’t already been recorded. To do so, go online to nFglUK. $100,000 How much Lawrence would receive if it won the Take Charge Challenge. 4 The number of projects that would receive funding if Lawrence won. Those projects include solar panels on Fire Station No. 5, a solar hot water heater at Prairie Park Nature Center, energy efficient fans at the East Lawrence Recreation Center and energy audits on city buildings.

University value A college or university — especially a major university like Kansas University — is a major economic and cultural asset to the city in which it is located.


ecent news reports paint a fairly discouraging picture of the Lawrence economy. By one measure, Lawrence’s overall economy grew by one of the slowest rates in the entire country in 2010. This being the case, consider how fortunate the city is to be home to Kansas University. What would Lawrence be like, what would its economic situation be without the university? It’s difficult to measure, but the presence of the university with its faculty, students, support staff, university-related activities, maintenance and building expenditures, research dollars, the money left in Lawrence by hundreds of thousands of visitors to KU each year, plus many other sources of money entering the Lawrence economy, all show how important the university is to the welfare of the community. Consider what a home football game at KU means to the Lawrence economy, particularly in times such as these when many merchants are struggling to stay afloat. Try to figure out how much KU students spend in Lawrence in addition to those expenses tied directly to their schooling at KU. “University cities” are blessed in many ways, and local residents should be quick to do whatever they can to help and strengthen the university. Kansas cities such as Lawrence, Manhattan, Wichita, Hays, Emporia, Pittsburg, Ottawa, Baldwin City, Topeka and others are fortunate to be the home of a university or college, no matter what its size. These schools are a great stimulus to each community, and the faculty and students at these schools bring vitality and enthusiasm to the host cities. As noted above, Lawrence residents should be strong, effective and positive spokespeople for the university, and university officials should be aware of the importance of helping the city when possible. It’s a two-way street. One hopes that KU and University of Missouri officials will keep that in mind when it comes time to sign contracts for the location of the annual KU-MU football game.

Recall limits help protect political class WASHINGTON — The pleasant sound you hear — the clatter of bad laws crumbling — is the edifice of campaign finance restrictions disintegrating. Washington state provides a fresh example of the exhaustion of the “campaign finance reform” project, which tries to empower government to restrict speech about the composition and conduct of government. The state law at issue is awful, but usefully awful: It perfectly illustrates how the political class crafts campaign regulations for the purpose of protecting the job security of members of that class — elected incumbents. Pierce County near Seattle has an assessor-treasurer, Dale Washam, whose comportment in office has offended Robin Farris and others. The details about what Washam has done to stir a recall clamor need not concern us; courts consider whether the details are sufficiently grave before allowing a recall election to proceed. For the record, the Tacoma News Tribune says Washam’s two-year tenure “has turned a minor government office into a fountain of perpetual controversy. ... Investigations state that Washam retaliated against his employees, wasted government resources, abused his power and hindered the inquiries. Costs of those investigations and other legal matters tied to Washam’s office now exceed $108,000. The four damage claims — preludes to lawsuits — seek a collective total of $4.25 million.”

George Will

What is, therefore, highly unreasonable — and unconstitutional — is the regime of restrictions on raising and spending money on recall campaigns.”

The right of the people to vote to recall elected officials is a legacy of Western populism. Farris, a retired naval officer who has never previously been politically active, and some kindred spirits have failed to gain enough signatures to force a vote to remove Washam — perhaps because of the impediments to signature gathering. Not unreasonably, Washington state law, in order to prevent attempts to overturn elections for frivolous reasons, requires a superior court judge to have a “sufficiency hearing” to determine whether the charges against an official attain a threshold of seriousness by involving “malfeasance or misfeasance.” This judge’s opinion can be appealed to the state Supreme

Court. So a recall campaign necessarily involves significant litigation expenses — even before beginning the efforts to collect sufficient signatures to get the recall question on the ballot. What is, therefore, highly unreasonable — and unconstitutional — is the regime of restrictions on raising and spending money on recall campaigns. So say Farris and the Oldfield & Helsdon law firm, which ran afoul of state law when it volunteered to do pro bono work on behalf of Farris and the Recall Dale Washam Committee she helped to organize. Farris and the firm are represented by the Institute for Justice — a public interest law firm based in Arlington, Va. State law restricts individual contributions to most recall campaigns to just $800. This low limit on the indispensable means of disseminating political speech is a huge impediment to buying newspaper advertising. Such advertising is necessary — see above — to collect the requisite 65,495 signatures in a county of 1,800 square miles. And the $800 limit has a wee constitutional defect: The U.S. Supreme Court has held that the only permissible reason for any limits on political contributions is to prevent corruption or the appearance thereof — basically, quid pro quo transactions between candidates and their supporters. But who exactly can be corrupted by the spending of persons supporting

the recall of an elected official? It gets worse. Washington state says that lawyers who do pro bono work on behalf of a recall effort — who volunteer their time to help with litigation the state makes mandatory — must count their time as a financial contribution subject to the $800 limit. This, too, has the effect, surely intended, of crippling recall efforts. You almost have to admire the audacity of Washington state’s political class in writing a law that constitutes such a comprehensive attack on citizens’ First Amendment rights of speech and of association — of assembling to petition for redress of grievances. The law provides a right of recall — and then vitiates that right. It turns a de jure right into a de facto nullity by mandating an expensive process, then arbitrarily limiting the ability of participants to meet those expenses. It does this by placing low limits on monetary contributions to recall campaigns and, even more insidiously, it compels volunteer lawyers to monetize the time they contribute to litigation the state requires. This rigging of a process threatening to the serenity of the political class is unambiguous proof that protection of that class is always a — in this case the — purpose of government regulation of politics in the name of “campaign finance reform.”

About 17 recipients of Aid to Dependent Children were in danYEARS ger of losing their AGO support. These IN 1971 parents had not signed complaints against their husbands for failure to pay child support. The prime objective of the plan had dicrous claim that the Founding been not only to prosecute faFathers worked “tirelessly” to thers who were unwilling to contribute to the support of their end slavery. As proof, she trotted out John children, but also to “eliminate a Quincy Adams who did, indeed, mother and father conspiring to work to abolish slavery. Too bad get ADC payments.”

Bachmann’s silence is golden Steven Miles and Arthur Caplan are my new heroes. They should be yours, too — if you hold the radical opinion that facts matter. Dr. Miles, a University of Minnesota bioethicist, offered $1,000 to a charity if Michele Bachmann could prove a link she suggested between vaccinations for human papilloma virus and intellectual disability. Dr. Caplan, director of the University of Pennsylvania’s Center for Bioethics, upped the ante on Miles’ offer, adding $10,000 of his own. Bachmann, the frequently facts-challenged Minnesota congresswoman who wants to be president, wandered into this thicket during a recent GOP debate in Tampa, Fla. She attacked Texas Gov. Rick Perry for an executive order requiring girls in that state to be vaccinated for HPV or, as Bachmann put it, to receive “a government injection.” It was an obvious attempt to tap that rich seam of anti-government ferment that runs through the body politic. Later, in interviews with Fox “News” and The Today Show, she spoke of a woman who came up to her crying after the debate. “She said her daughter was given that vaccine. She said her daughter suffered mental retardation as a result of that vaccine.” And how difficult is it to imagine a scenario where that irresponsible remark pays off in tragedy? HPV causes cervical cancer. If some child now dies of that disease because her parents were made paranoid of “government

injections,” much of the blame will lie with Bachmann. When she found herself pilloried by doctors, pundits and even her own ideological soulmates, Bachmann responded that she wasn’t speaking as a doctor or scientist, but only as a mother. It’s a remarkably disingenuous excuse, reminiscent of a statement from Sen. Jon Kyl’s office in April that an outlandish claim he made about Planned Parenthood “was not intended to be a factual statement.” Still, it beat the usual strategy of doubling down on stupid, seeking some loophole through which the incorrect can be proven correct. You saw this when Bachmann was hammered on her lu-

he was all of 8 years old when the nation began. He was a Founding Child, perhaps, but a Founding Father? No. But the fact is, facts don’t matter much to Bachmann. She is the avatar of a slimy ethos newly prominent in American politics and life. It is the elevation of end over means, the binding of conscience and the gagging of integrity. It is permission to say whatever outrageous thing will give you advantage, to lie your natural backside off if it will win the argument. Facts? True believers don’t need no stinking facts. Or, as Stephen Colbert famously observed, it is no longer necessary that a thing be true. It is enough that it be “truthy.” Except that it really isn’t enough. Facts don’t stop being facts just because you ignore them. So we are indebted to Miles and Caplan for putting their money where Bachmann’s mouth is, requiring her to put up or shut up. In failing to respond to their challenge, she has effectively chosen the latter. And she says more by her silence than ever she did with words. — Leonard Pitts Jr., winner of the 2004 Pulitzer Prize for commentary, is a columnist for the Miami Herald.

From the Lawrence Daily Journal-World for Sept. 22, 1911: YEARS “Colonel John AGO James McCook, a IN 1911 New York lawyer, died today from pneumonia at his summer home. He was 67 years old. The death of Colonel McCook is of more than passing interest in Lawrence for to this man this city and Kansas University is [indebted] for the present athletic grounds as he gave the money with which McCook Field was purchased. It chanced that in 1890, Col McCook, who was then an attorney for the Santa Fe railroad, came to Lawrence and attended a Baker — K.U. football game. It was played on the old university field on the 1400 block of Massachusetts street. It was only a vacant lot, and entirely inadequate for the needs of the university athletes. Col. McCook saw the game and became interested in Kansas University and her athletics immediately and offered to give the money for the purchase of a more suitable field on which the athletic events of the university might be held.” — Compiled by Sarah St. John

Ellis, at 2:45 p.m. sharp, simply acknowledged some important individuals in his life, then

told about 30 media members in a voice barely above a whisper he’d orally committed to play hoops at Kansas University. “I’d like to thank all the schools that recruited me over the past years, especially the last four schools. I really appreciate them,” Ellis said in an opening statement. “At this time I’d like to decide what school I will go to. It’s the University of Kansas. I knew for so long. “I’ve been there so many times. I felt so comfortable there,” added’s No.

24-rated player, who phoned coaches of his four finalists just before he met the press. “It (comfort level) made me realize that was the school. This has been in my mind awhile now. It wasn’t just a pop-up type thing. I wanted to do it today because I was ready.” Ellis said KU coach Bill Self “was real excited for me and happy,” upon receiving the oral commitment. Equally happy was KU big-man coach Danny Manning. Please see ELLIS, page 3B

Reports: Beebe could be ousted today J-W Staff Reports

Dan Beebe’s days as commissioner of the Big 12 Conference appear to be numbered. Sources within the league said Wednesday that conference officials are moving to replace Beebe, who could be fired or announce his resignation today. “I sense that he’s gonna be the scapegoat,” one source told the Journal-World.

The Tulsa World indicated former Big Eight commissioner Chuck Neinas would likely fill in as interim commissioner until a permanent replacement is hired. Neinas was the assistant executive director of the NCAA from 1961-1971 and Big Eight commissioner from 1971-1980. He currently runs Neinas Sports Services. speculated

official word on Beebe could come today when the Big 12 presidents hold a conference call. One source told that Beebe’s status was “tenuous at best.” There has been speculation Beebe may resign as early as today if a suitable buyout can be reached. Meanwhile, the Daily Oklahoman reported Wednesday that the Sooners, who committed to

ment wheels are still turning, especially with the Aggies planning to join the Southeastern Conference as soon as legal threats are out of the way. “Certainly the position of Oklahoma State and I think most of the schools, if not all, is that we want to add a 10th team,” said Oklahoma State president Burns Hargis, a member of the league’s expansion committee. He listed TCU, Houston, SMU, BYU, Utah and Air Force among the potential expansion targets before saying “we’ve talked about a lot of ideas.”

T-shirts don’t irk Jayhawks Early this week, the Georgia Tech athletic department printed T-shirts to commemorate the Yellow Jackets’ recordsetting performance in their 6624 victory against Kansas last week. Asked Wednesday if they had any reaction to the shirts, the Jayhawks seemed fine with Tech celebrating their school and national records. “I heard about it,” red-shirt freshman safety Keeston Terry said. “I saw a little link to it. But when you accomplish something like that, you gotta boast about it and be proud about what you did. It’s just unfortunate that we were on the opposite side of a record they set.” Added red-shirt freshman cornerback Dexter McDonald: “I haven’t seen the shirts, but I overhead something about them. After you lose, anything can be motivation. You’re gonna take it to heart if you care.” Although he didn’t know if the shirts would serve as extra motivation, Long said he learned a lesson about stuff like that a long time ago. “This football world is a small world,” Long said. “I had an old mentor tell me one time, ‘You’re gonna run into these people again.’ And, in my coaching career, I have. But those are things that you remember. I’m not for that, but those are things that happen.”

the Big 12 on Wednesday, were not all that serious about bolting to the Pac-12, which announced Tuesday the league would not be expanding at this time. The paper said: “A high-ranking OU official told The Oklahoman Wednesday that reforming the Big 12 was the plan all along and that rumors that the Sooners and Cowboys (Oklahoma State) were moving West were being used as leverage.”

Big 12, Big East start picking up pieces “

The most important goal for the University of Oklahoma is conference stability.” — OU president David Boren

By Jeff Latzke and Jim Vertuno Associated Press Sports Writers

Turned away by the Pac-12, the Big 12’s most powerful members are trying to find ways to live together again after weeks of hurtling toward a break-up. Texas President William Powers declared Wednesday that the Longhorns — who receive more media money than other members of the Big 12 — are open to a new revenue-sharing model and have already suggested that toplevel television and cable money be shared equally. What’s not on the table is the money from Texas’ 20-year,

FOLLOW ONLINE Need up-to-the-minute updates on the conference realignment madness? Matt Tait’s Tale of the Tait blog has you covered. Follow the action as it happens on $300 million deal with ESPN to create the Longhorn Network, which has been blamed in large part for Texas A&M’s pending departure from the Big 12. “That’s never been in play, that’s not in play,” Texas athletic director DeLoss Dodds said. So with that line drawn in

the sand, the Big 12 leadership has scheduled a key meeting today, Oklahoma President David Boren said. “The most important goal for the University of Oklahoma is conference stability,” he said. “We intend to support actions that will strengthen and stabilize the conference at the very important meeting of the conference board.” The Pac-12 late Tuesday squashed any hope of Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Texas and Texas Tech heading west in what surely would have been a death blow to the Big 12. But the conference realign-

So far, Kansas University wide receiver Daymond Patterson’s senior year has not gone according to plan. Good thing he’ll get another. Wednesday night, after the team’s second practice of the bye week, KU coach Turner Gill announced that Patterson would take a red shirt this season because of a Patterson groin injury he suffered in the season-opening victory against McNeese State. “We thought it was going to be a little bit better this week, but it looks like it’s going to linger a little bit,” Gill said. “Because he’ll probably miss four or five games, I think it’s just smarter for our football team, and also for him, to make sure he has a solid senior year.” Because he played in just one half this season, Patterson’s application for a medical red shirt should be a slam dunk. Gill likes the idea of having Patterson back a second time in 2012. “It’s nothing but good,” Gill said. “He’s a guy with a lot of experience. He’s played a lot of football, and he’s going to help, even this year, as far as being able to teach some of the younger guys. Obviously, we’re going to miss him, but it’s another opportunity for somebody else, and it’s going to make us stronger next season.” After leading the KU wide receivers in receptions, yards and touchdowns in 2010, Patterson got off to a fast start this year, scoring the team’s first receiving touchdown of the season. Not long after, he injured his groin after being tackled awkwardly and has not been able to return to 100 percent since. Offensive coordinator Chuck Long said losing Patterson’s veteran presence would be missed. But he said he was confident the senior from Mesquite, Texas, would find a way to impact the team. “In talking to (wide receivers) coach (David) Beaty, I asked him, ‘How’s he been in the (meeting) room?’ because it’s tough not playing,” Long said. “And he said he’s been really good in the room. And that’s the first silver lining you get out of it.”

FREE STATE SINGLES PLAYER EMILY SADOSKI REACHES for a return Wednesday in the Free State tennis double-dual. The Firebirds shut out Shawnee Mission North, 4-0, and tied SM Northwest, 2-2, on Wednesday at FSHS.

FSHS tennis blanks SM North, ties Northwest By Corey Thibodeaux

Free State High’s tennis team was happy with a split Wednesday. The Firebirds blanked Shawnee Mission North, 4-0, and tied perennial power SM Northwest, 2-2, at FSHS. “To be able to split with Shawnee Mission Northwest is a good day,” FSHS coach Oather Strawderman said. The final match of the day was between Emily Sadoski of FSHS and Lauren Benjamin of SM Northwest. The Firebirds were up, 2-1, against the Cougars, and Sadoski led by a set most of the way until Benjamin tied it at 6 and finished off the last two sets. The other close match against the Cougars ended in favor of the Firebirds. The doubles duo of sophomore Alita Joseph and freshman Megan Reynolds, despite their youth, overcame an early deficit to win in a tiebreaker, 8-7 (7-4).

It was one of the most reassuring moments of the day for Strawderman. “That’s a good sign for the future of our team for years to come,” he said. The meet was supposed to be a quad, but Blue Valley Southwest backed out, so the girls only played two matches instead of three. “It was a little disappointing,” Guin Toalson said. “I really like playing, and that’s why I’m part of the team.” The league meet is Tuesday, and Strawderman said he expects a top-four finish. Shawnee Mission East has yet to be dethroned after several years of winning league. “I think it’s always good to shoot for the top,” Strawderman said, “but I think that it’s good to be realistic.” Still, a lot of the girls remain optimistic about their chances. “Hopefully, most of our team will end up going to state and placing there,” Toalson said, “if not winning.”



The Big East, left with only six football members after Pitt and Syracuse announced plans to join the ACC, must also find a new way forward, while the Mountain West and Conference USA are in discussions about a partnership. The talk of saving the Big 12 centers on sharing television revenue equally — a core principle of the Big Ten and Pac-12. The Big 12 splits the revenue from its $1.2 billion Fox Sports contract evenly, but only half of the money from its top-tier deal with ABC goes into equal shares. The rest is weighted toward the programs that play on the network more frequently, such as Texas and Oklahoma. Dodds said Big 12 athletic directors more than a month ago approved Texas’ suggestion to equally share to network revenue around the league. He said the plan has not been voted on by league presidents. Texas Tech president Guy Bailey said he doesn’t anticipate much opposition to that idea. “I would be surprised if there weren’t a change in that, in some way,” he said. Now, how exactly it plays out, I don’t know.” Big 12 Commissioner Dan Beebe has not commented on the turmoil surrounding the league and there is speculation about his future. Beebe’s contract was extended in November through June 2015, a decision made after Nebraska and Colorado announced they were leaving the Big 12

In my mind, 10 is the perfect conference.” — Texas AD DeLoss Dodds, on a 10-team league and before the 13-year deal was reached with Fox Sports in April. Dodds declined comment, and Bailey and Hargis called Beebe’s status a private “personnel” matter, though reports surfaced Wednesday that Beebe was on the way out, as early as today. Besides today’s meeting of the Big 12 conference board, a summit also is possible between Texas and Oklahoma officials. Big 12 athletic directors also have a previously scheduled meeting in Dallas next week. ESPN distanced itself from the conference affiliation uproar, saying the “driving force on realignment lies with the conferences and universities.” Still, the Longhorn Network created uncertainty in the Big 12 and Texas A&M said it was a big reason why the Aggies will leave the Big 12 by July — a decision that stands, the school said Wednesday. Nebraska athletic director Tom Osborne earlier this month said the Big 12’s revenue-sharing plan lends itself to instability. The Huskers is in its first season as a member of the Big Ten, where each school received $22.6 million this year — about twice as much as Nebraska could have expected if it had stayed in the Big 12. Texas’ Powers said revenue sharing will be subject to discussion in coming days.

“We’re real close. We talk not just about basketball but everything,” Ellis said of the former KU All-American. “You see what he does with his players. For example, the (Morris) twins, how they came in and how they improved. It’s going to be great. He’s only going to make me better.” The three-time Kansas Gatorade Player of the Year likes other things about KU, including ... ! The tradition: “Before the games, they play the little video how the game was created there, by James Naismith,” said Ellis, who will attend Saturday’s Legend of the Phog KU alumni game in KU’s tradition-rich Allen Fieldhouse. “I look at all that stuff. It’s one of the top programs. I’m going to try to be a part of it.” ! The proximity to home: “I mean, it’s far enough to feel away. It’s close enough I can come back anytime,” said Ellis, whose younger brothers, Brae and Cameron, attended the news conference. Ellis also made a point to thank his sister, Savannah, who played basketball at Memphis, graduating last May. “I could have stayed here (to play at WSU). I love being around my family. I just felt comfortable at KU. It was the right location and right fit for me.” ! The attention: “He (Self) was the first to come to my games my freshman year. That really impressed me and humbled me,” Ellis said. “He’s a real good person and I’m excited to play for him.” In Ellis, KU lands Heights’ leading rebounder of all-time and No. 2 scorer. He’s coming off a season in which he averaged 22.1 points and 7.9 rebounds a game for the undefeated state champs. “What we’ve heard from the coaches that recruited him is he is a match-up nightmare,” said Wichita Heights coach Joe Auer. “He can guard the perimeter. He can go both inside and out. Coaches didn’t really talk a lot about what position he’d play, that’d it be a combination.” Ellis’ AAU coach, Steve Young of Wichita Pray and Play Players, cited Ellis’ strong shooting ability as a strength. He hit 74.9 percent from the field last year, 33.3 percent from three. “He strives for perfection in everything, schoolwork and basketball,” Young said. “I think you see that in the high percentage he shoots, his desire for perfection.”

“A lot of these issues that you hear (about) whether it’s revenue sharing or whatever, we’ve been working on long before,” he said. “We will continue to work on those. I’m not going to prejudge on how those will come out. There are not any preconditions for the conference coming back together. “We want a stable, workable conference going forward,” Powers said. Once the Aggies leave, the Big 12 will have nine members unless a replacement — or replacements — are found. Only SMU has gone public with its interest in joining the Big 12. “It’s about quality, not quantity,” Dodds said. “In my mind, 10 is the perfect conference. You have a clear path to the national championship game without stumbling in a (conference) championship game.” There was still activity around the Big 12 on Wednesday. Oklahoma State’s regents gave school Hargis the power to depart the Big 12 if necessary while regents in Kansas reiterated their support for staying in the Big 12. Regents in Missouri are scheduled to meet Thursday. Hargis said the decision to give him authority over a league change was important even after the Pac-12 was taken off the table as a potential destination because “there are a lot of moving parts here and we may have to make decisions fast.” He said his first priority is stabilizing the Big 12. Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback said he was optimistic that the Big 12 would remain intact, stabilize and add members.

He’s been called perhaps the best player in Wichita high school history. The city has produced others, including Darnell Valentine, Antoine Carr and Greg Dreiling. “To win three straight state championships and add to the fact he’s continually getting stronger and better, you could make a case for that. He’s definitely one of the best to come through,” Young said. Ellis said he’s looking forward to going for state title No. 4 this season. “I don’t have to worry about it,” he said of recruiting. “I get to play and have fun my senior year. I’m happy to have it over with. I’m excited about my choice, but I’ll miss it. It only happens one time.” Fonda Ellis said she was thrilled for her son. “I was nervous about today. I was excited, anxious and relieved,” she said. “I support Perry and want Perry to be happy. We tried our best to shield and protect him from too much media, so I dealt with a lot of media. Coach Auer did too and coach Steve Young helped a lot in the process. If he is happy,” she added of Perry, “I’m happy.” She’s a big fan of KU’s coaches. “They have been great. We mainly were in contact with coach Self and Manning, but I guess this summer, coach (Joe) Dooley and coach (Kurtis) Townsend all followed Perry around. We’ve known them three or four years and built a great relationship with them,” Fonda said. KU, which has received commitments from Ellis and Plano, Texas, power forward Zach Peters, has two scholarships left to give in the Class of 2012, three if Thomas Robinson elects to turn pro after his junior season. ! Cool, calm, collected: Heights coach Auer, who repeated Ellis’ choice of KU to the folks in the audience in case they didn’t hear the softspoken player, said he’s been amazed at the way Perry has handled attention the past several years. “His first game ... he could hardly breathe he was so nervous,” Auer said of a game played in front of 8,000 fans at Koch Arena in Wichita. “I said, ‘Just go out and try to get 10 rebounds and don’t worry about anything else.’ I think he went out and got 11.” ! More recruiting: Self held an in-home recruiting visit Wednesday with the country’s No. 1 prospect — 6-6 Shabazz Muhammad of Bishop Gorman High in Las Vegas. Muhammad has not yet set up his official visit to KU.

“single” on Facebook. This makes me feel ignored and hidden away. My girlfriend says she likes her status to be private and doesn’t pay that much attention to her Facebook page anyway. I explained that it hurts me to feel nonexistent, but she won’t change it. What should I do? — Tom Dear Tom: Find a new girlfriend. Listing her status as “single” is no more private than listing it any other way, and she can keep it hidden aries a girlfriend should re- if she chooses. The fact that spect when dealing with her she won’t change it after you partner’s teenage daughter. have told her it is hurtful inAlthough it is possible the barn will bring the two of you closer, it’s equally likely that Rosie will chafe if you are in a position of authority over her. Ask yourself whether you can maintain the necessary boundaries if you accept this responsibility, and explain your concerns to Captain. It is OK to say no. But if you decide to do it, we recommend bringing Rosie into the conversation. After all, her father is doing this for her benefit, and she should have some say in the matter. Dear Annie: I’ve been with my girlfriend for seven months. She is incredible, and I can easily see myself spending the rest of my life with her. The only problem is that she is still listed as

‘Person of Interest’ can hold attention Paranoia meets spirituality via technology in “Person of Interest” (8 p.m., CBS). And Michael Emerson (“Lost”) and Jim Caviezel (“The Passion of the Christ”) seem perfectly cast to pull this off. Emerson returns to the enigmatic, creepy puppet master part he played so well on “Lost.” He’s Finch, the shadowy creator of a computer system that is used to track terrorists. It’s so effective that it also picks up clues on ordinary folks. So many clues that Finch knows these people are at the center of something deadly and imminent. He just can’t tell if they are to be victims or perpetrators. Because Finch feels morally compelled to intervene, he hires Reese (Caviezel), a drunken, suicidal, washed-up former CIA agent. As it will week after week, hightech gadgetry allows Finch and Reese to spy on their targets and everyone around them. And while this mostly leads to the usual car chases, fistfights and shoot-’em-ups, it’s fun not knowing the good guys from the bad till the very end. Are Reese and Finch super-sleuths or supernatural agents? I say “supernatural” because it should be mentioned that both men are legally dead. Anonymous and unseen, they resemble the hovering angels in Wim Wenders’ 1987 fantasy “Wings of Desire.” Folks looking for something a little beyond the cookie-cutter crime procedural should check this out.

“Prime Suspect” (9 p.m., NBC), starring Maria Bello, has very little to do with the original British “Prime,” starring Helen Mirren, the most lauded detective series in a generation. It has everything to do with pandering to a female demographic. While Mirren’s show was a slow-building character study about an alcoholic detective, Bello’s character is a hardcharging, feisty, capable female detective beset by a sexist bureaucracy. For every step she takes to collar the bad guys, she takes 10 steps backward while battling a boys club that’s so old school, you half expect them to break into song, like the Jets in “West Side Story.” It’s “NYPD Blue” as reimagined by Oprah Winfrey. Let’s just call it “Sub-Prime Suspect.”

With “Whitney” (8:30 p.m., NBC), Whitney Cummings of “Chelsea Lately” gets her own sitcom. Unfortunately, it’s the wrong sitcom. She’s a wisecracking woman in a long-term relationship with the perfectly nice but dull Alex (Chris D’Elia). She’s too neurotic to get married, and her sassy, two-dimensional friends are not as funny as her. Maybe this is just bad writing, or perhaps a deliberate attempt to make her seem funnier.

Looks like we’ve run out of room before reviewing the remake of the remake of “Charlie’s Angels” (7 p.m., ABC). Darn!

Tonight’s other season premieres

The morning after for Penny and Raj on “The Big Bang Theory” (7 p.m., CBS).

Pierce remains a question mark on “Community” (7 p.m., NBC).

Leslie’s big choice on “Parks and Recreation” (7:30 p.m., NBC).

James Spader joins the cast of “The Office” (8 p.m., NBC).

Everybody’s in crisis mode on “Grey’s Anatomy” (8 p.m., ABC).

Jane must prove the man he shot was really Red John on “The Mentalist” (9 p.m., CBS).

JACQUELINE BIGAR’S STARS For Thursday, Sept. 22: This year, a relationship or partnership could gain in importance. You value this tie, but this person seems to be changing right in front of you. Learn to flex. If you are single, you could meet someone very different while pursuing a spiritual or educational interest. Unpredictability could add to the excitement that exists between you. Leo reads you cold. 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)  Your ability to identify with a close friend or loved one could determine the quality of the interaction. Tonight: Your fiery spirit returns. Taurus (April 20-May 20)  Stay on top of communication, even if you are taken aback by what you hear. Tonight: Tap into your creativity. Gemini (May 21-June 20)  Remain sensitive to the costs of a situation or decision. Others appreciate your awareness of the stress they might be under. Tonight: Balance your checkbook.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)  You have a style and way of handling issues that allows others to feel comfortable and open. Tonight: Ready to go. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)  Take your time before jumping to a conclusion.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)  Reach out for more information. You might not like your kneejerk reaction, so stop and find out more. Your ability to do that is based on your ability to detach. Tonight: Working late. Sagittarius (Nov. 22Dec. 21)

Dear Annie: I have been seeing “Captain” for three years. His 13-year-old daughter, “Rosie,” is horse crazy after riding at summer camp and is now taking lessons locally. As a former horse trainer, I am thrilled at her interest. However, she expresses resentment with the sparse guidance I have given. So now when I take her to lessons, I stay out of the way. I understand this is not unusual. My problem is, Captain wants to provide a facility with horses at his home. Due to my experience, he expects me to be the person who manages the barn, provides guidance to Rosie and acts as her riding partner. I am reluctant to assume this position. Rosie and I have a peaceful relationship, mostly because I am consistently pleasant and supportive. I sense this is a fragile time for Rosie, who is a little spoiled, but who I know will someday become a thoughtful young woman. I don’t want to risk the little compatibility we have. Captain will likely follow my stance on whether or not to proceed with a barn at his home. What do you say? — Montana Gal Dear Montana: You have a good grasp of the bound-

Lawrence (USEPA) has a 45-day review period, which will start concurrently with the 30-day public comment period, within which to object to the proposed permit. If the USEPA has not objected in writing to the issuance of the permit within the 45-day review period, any person may petition the administrator of the USEPA to review the permit. The 60-day public petition period will directly follow the USEPA 45 day review period. Interested parties may contact KDHE to determine if the USEPA 45-day review period has been waived. Any such petition shall be based only on objections to the permit that were raised with reasonable specificity during the public comment period provided for in this notice, unless the petitioner demonstrates that it was impracticable to raise such objections within such period, or unless the grounds for such objection arose after such period. Contact Patricia Scott, USEPA, Region VII, Air Permitting and Compliance Branch, 901 N. 5th Street, Kansas City, Kansas 66101, (913) 551-7312, to determine when the 45 day USEPA review period ends and the 60 day petition period commences.
