Commission to decide on policy that would transfer ratepayer money to general operating fund By Chad Lawhorn clawhorn@ljworld.com

Here’s one property tax break City Hall leaders aren’t crazy about. Under state law, cityowned utilities, such as the city’s water and sewer department, aren’t required to pay property taxes on their assets. That means the multimillion-dollar treatment plants, the pipes in the ground, and the smaller pump stations and other facilities scattered throughout the city aren’t subject to a tax bill. That’s different from an investor-owned utility — like Westar, for example — which pays millions in property taxes that ultimately are paid by customers through their electric rates. But now, City Hall leaders are saying its own utility department shouldn’t get such a tax break. At their meeting today, city commissioners will consider a policy that would allow the city to transfer money paid by ratepayers into the city’s general operating fund to account for

how much property taxes the utility would pay if it were a privately operated business. “Like privately owned utilities who pay property taxes, city utilities benefit from public safety, parks and recreation, economic development, planning and development services, and other city functions,” a memo from City Manager Dever David Corliss’ office to commissioners states. But the idea is creating some questions. “It is a rationale I think we need to talk about a little more,” said City Commissioner Mike Dever. “We need some feedback from the community on this.” The new policy would not immediately increase water and sewer rates. That’s because the city already has been making a payment-inlieu of property taxes type Please see UTILITIES, page 5A

Halt to standards-based grades sought for middle schools By Mark Fagan mfagan@ljworld.com

Sixth-graders now are taking electives, using lockers, dressing out for gym and doing plenty of other things at school to prepare them for an eventual transition to high school. But they’re keeping their standards-based grading system, and that has some parents and teachers worried. “My students don’t know what they’re doing,” said Jill

Patton, whose daughter this year entered sixth-grade in the Lawrence school district after elementary school at Corpus Christi Catholic School, where traditional letter grades were the norm. “They do not know what is expected in the classroom.” While sixth-graders in the district still will receive letter grades — just as they would have last year in elementary school — they also will receive grades of E, S, M or T on more than a dozen catego-

ries spanning knowledge and learner behaviors, also just as they would have last year. SCHOOLS It’s just that this year all sixth-graders are in middle schools, and that means multiple classes, multiple teachers and multiple changes for students, parents and teachers grappling with a district that has been

“reconfigured for student success.” And parents such as Patton took their concerns Monday night to the Lawrence school board, hoping to halt the introduction of standardsbased grading into middle schools amid complaints of a lack of teacher training, absence of parental input and plenty of worries about student motivation. “We do not want to be the first class of trial and error,” said Patton, who has worked

as an elementary teacher. “We are asking you to stop this right now and save this school year and go back, retrain, start over, get the parents on board, get the students on board, (and) get the teachers on board. “We are floating and floundering, and that is not what Lawrence USD 497 is known for.” Board members listened as several parents and one district teacher made their way to the microphone, outlining

a series of complaints about notification and implementation and professional development and research and other shortcomings of the process. Their comments came after Kim Bodensteiner, the district’s chief academic officer, had explained that the grading system had been in the district for 10 years at the elementary level, had been planned to remain with sixth-graders as that grade Please see SCHOOL, page 5A

KU professor to receive honor for her work with aging population By Karrey Britt kbritt@ljworld.com

Kansas University professor Rosemary Chapin is a champion for seniors. The 64-year-old Lawrence resident is recognized internationally for her writing, teaching and research to improve care for older adults — at home, in the community or a nursing home. While she has helped lawmakers shape policies, she’s most proud of her work in training and mentoring students. “What animates me is an interest in building a coterie of people

who are passionate about aging issues and have the skills to be effective practitioners and also policymakers and researchers in that area,” she said. Among people she has mentored: Carleen Roberts, executive director of Douglas County Senior Services; Belinda Vierthaler, state long-term care ombudsman; Rick VanDyke, community options program coordinator of the Wyandotte/Leavenworth County Area Agency on Aging;

sons that it couldn’t work,” Holmes said. “She taught me to help the client find their voice and be an advocate for the client.” Chapin encourages her students to focus on seniors’ strengths and what they can do — not what they can’t. “Most people ask, ‘What are your problems?’” Chapin said. “Not, ‘What are your goals?’” Her philosophy is a radical shift in how people provide care. Instead of looking at what people can’t do and what services they need, she looks at what people are capable of and what services can help support them. The goal is to help people maintain their independence. Chapin will be honored Oct. 23 with the 2011 Caring Award from Kansas Advocates for Better Care, a Lawrence-based nonprofit agency that advocates for people who need long-term care. “She writes, she publishes, she researches. She helps in implementing good public policy, and conceptually in terms of practice of the care, she’s had major impact,” said Wichita State Mitzi McFatrich, executive of Kansas Advocates president to resign director for Better Care.

in underscored many challenges getting mental health services for seniors: Medicare doesn’t cover all services, but will pick up more costs because of changes under the Affordable Care Act; many seniors can’t physically make it to an appointment at a mental health center, and often services are not provided at home; there’s a lack of training about seniors’ issues in the mental health field; and, as is the case for other Americans, there’s a stigma involved in accessing services. ! Retirement — If you think the golden years are meant for resting in a rocking chair, think again. “Research has found that staying active and exercising is good for everybody up to however old you live,” Chapin said. “It’s not good to become isolated and sedentary.” Even Chapin has no plans to retire; she plans to work as long as she can. “Lots of places are beginning to realize that if you hire an older adult versus a teenager, you are probably going to get someone who is going to come to work every day and probably not be sleepy or hung over,” she said. ! Lawrence research — She just finished a project that looked at what Lawrence needs to offer to become a premier retirement community. She said they talked to people who have chosen to retire here. “It was so interesting. We found that lots of people were coming back to Lawrence because they wanted to be around a college and they had been KU alums,” she said.

spent time in veterans hospitals as a teenager because her mother was a volunteer and her dad was in the Army. Chapin said she moved back to Kansas from Minnesota so she could be closer to her five grandchildren, who range from age 7 to 1. ! Home-based services — Chapin has done research on whether people who received home- and community-based services were able to stay in the community when they had the same needs as people in nursing homes. “I found out, yes, they could, and often they stayed in the community until death,” she said.

and résumé writing. “That will just allow you to apply. Remember, if there’s a listing that says ‘10 years of experience and a bachelor’s degree required,’ and you have that, so does everyone else.” “The thing you have to focus on is to go above and beyond the experience,” she said. It’s a familiar refrain by professionals connected with human relations, job searches and other fields affiliated with employment: Simply listing where you’ve worked, what jobs you’ve had and the responsibilities you’ve held may be impressive, but it often takes more to stand out in an increasingly crowded job market. Clearly communicating what you’ve done, how much business you’ve generated, how many efficiencies you’ve identified and how many positives you’ve provided for an employer can help, they say. Think numbers, percentages, returns. Evidence that you can get things done. “You have to know what your own strengths are and what makes you different from people who do the same things you do,” said Lyne Tumlinson, who runs Career Lift LLC, another Lawrence consulting firm that works with individuals, groups and organizations to make the most of their talent — and, increasingly, as a career coach for employees hoping to move up and former employees looking to land new jobs. “That makes you stand out. Otherwise, you become a commodity.” Whether you are looking for advancement in your current job or are working to get hired at a new job, the two professionals say there are a few things everyone should do: ! Do your homework. Find out exactly what an employer wants and then figure out, exactly, how you can make that happen. ! Focus on results. “What successes have you had?” Tumlinson said. “And what problems did you overcome?” Such details on a résumé should allow a reviewer to determine how you might fit into the company’s plans, especially when compared with people who simply list their jobs and responsibilities. Rau’s take: “If there’s a way to quantify or measure what you did as an employee, those are powerful statements. … That shows you’re the best qualified.” ! Be proactive. “It’s very frustrating to send off a lot of résumés and sit and wait,” Rau said, so consider having a reference — preferably someone within the company you’re targeting — make unsolicited contact with the company’s hiring professionals or others in charge, even before you send in a résumé and cover letter. “It sounds very bold, but — in this market — you have to do anything you can to get an interview,” Rau said. “The goal of a résumé is to get an interview. … You need to get your foot in the door and somehow be considered to get an interview.” Among Tumlinson’s clients is Joel Wagler, who spent 25 years working in customer-service, management and ownership positions. After closing his business, The Mail Box, in December, he’s been busy applying for jobs in the area. He admits having been lost early on — not unusual for someone who had last interviewed for a job back in 1985, when he landed work stocking groceries in Hutchinson — but is encouraged by his direction since signing on with Career Lift. Wagler knows he has plenty to offer and is working to see that potential employers see the benefits he can bring to the job beginning on Day One. “I know what to look for,” said Wagler, who is using Tumlinson’s advice during confidential sessions to target traditional markets and explore new opportunities, a direction he’s happy to share. “I’m confident with my résumé. I don’t lack confidence in myself. … “You can’t control what the employers are doing, but you can control how you go about it. That’s what I’m doing.” — Schools reporter Mark Fagan can be reached at 832-7188. Follow him at Twitter. com/MarkFaganLJW.

EPA official stresses clean water advocacy

1 | WASHINGTON, D.C.

Government shutdown averted Ending weeks of political brinkmanship, Congress finessed a dispute over disaster aid Monday night and advanced legislation to avoid a partial government shutdown only days away. The agreement ensured there would be no interruption in assistance to areas battered by disasters such as Hurricane Irene and last spring’s tornadoes in Joplin, Mo., and also that the government would be able to run normally when the new budget year begins Saturday. The Senate approved the resolution after a day of behind-the-scenes talks and occasionally biting debate, spelling an end to the latest in a string of standoffs between Democrats and Republicans over deficits, spending and taxes. Those fights have rattled financial markets and coincided with polls showing congressional approval ratings at historically low levels. 1 | WASHINGTON, D.C.

That’s right, look in the mirror; you are going to have to become involved. If you don’t, other entities who are only interested in what they do will be the only ones at the table. You are going to have to step up and get involved.”

With the Environmental Protection Agency under attack like never before, Region 7 Administrator Karl Brooks urged a friendly crowd at Monday’s Jayhawk Audubon Society meeting to advocate for cleaner water. Recently, Republicans — both in Kansas and in Washington, D.C. — have criticized the EPA for what they say are too-stringent regulations that hamper small businesses, farmers and job growth. “Our agency right now is as controversial as any government agency in the last quarter

— Environmental Protection Agency Region 7 Administrator Karl Brooks century,” Brooks said. “And, I can say that. I’m an historian.” Brooks, who has lived in Lawrence for 15 years and teaches environmental law, history and policy at Kansas University, took on the role of EPA Region 7 administrator in 2010. He noted Monday night that public

opinion polls show 75 percent of Americans support that the EPA should be as strong as it is now. “Criticism comes with the turf. There’s never been a time where the EPA hasn’t been debated. But this is probably as tough as a season as we have ever faced,” Brooks said. “I’m

confident that this agency will renew that connection with the people.” Brooks main focus Monday was on better management of the state’s watersheds. Although Kansas law says water is a public resource, nearly all the land in Kansas is private. And much of that land is heavily cultivated. The 41-year-old Clean Water Act regulates the pollution the sewer plants and industries emit into waterways. But it fails to regulate what chemicals are entering the waterways through nonpoint source pollution, such as the fertilizers put on lawns, Please see EPA, page 4A

Living people to appear on stamps Hoping to boost sagging revenue, the U.S. Postal Service on Monday abandoned its longstanding rule that stamps cannot feature people who are still alive and is asking the public for suggestions. It’s a first that means living sports stars, writers, artists and other prominent — or not-so-prominent — people could take their places in postal history next to the likes of George Washington, Martin Luther King Jr., and Marilyn Monroe. “This change will enable us to pay tribute to individuals for their achievements while they are still alive to enjoy the honor,” said Postmaster General Patrick Donahoe. But it seems to be at least as much about money as admiration. For years, the post office has been facing severe financial problems due to the growing use of email. A burst of interest in stamp design and collecting, which the Postal Service is seeking to promote partly through social media, could bring in new dollars, since stamps that are collected rather than used for postage provide added revenue.

Hearing draws those for, against pipeline Supporters cite job creation; protesters raise environmental concerns By Christine Metz cmetz@ljworld.com

ONLINE: See the video at SunflowerHorizons.com

1 | WASHINGTON, D.C.

TOPEKA — The national debate over the Keystone XL pipeline was pared down Monday afternoon to two chants on the sidewalk in front of the Kansas Expocentre. “What do we want? Jobs! When do we want them? Now!” cried the pipeline’s supporters, many of whom are members of union organization Pipeliners Local 798 based in Tulsa, Okla. In response was a group of Kansas environmental activists holding signs that read “stop the pipeline.” “No oil in our soil!” they shouted. Inside the Expocentre, residents from across the state elaborated on these points and a few other ones as part of a series of eight public hearings the U.S. Department of State is holding throughout the country about the 1,700-mile, $7 billion pipeline project. The new pipeline will begin in Hardisty, Alberta, Canada, and run through Montana, South Dakota, Nebraska, Oklahoma and Texas. Part of the massive pipeline has already been constructed in Kansas, but when the expansion project is completed

Study looks at heart health of dads Fatherhood may be a kick in the old testosterone, but it may also help keep a man alive. New research suggests that dads are a little less likely to die of heart-related problems than childless men are. The study — by the AARP, the government and several universities — is the largest ever on male fertility and mortality, involving nearly 138,000 men. Although a study like this can’t prove that fatherhood and mortality are related, there are plenty of reasons to think they might be, several heart disease experts said. Marriage, having lots of friends and even having a dog can lower the chance of heart problems and cardiac-related deaths, previous research suggests. Similarly, kids might help take care of you or give you a reason to take better care of yourself. Also, it takes reasonably good genes to father a child. An inability to do so might mean a genetic weakness that can spell heart trouble down the road. 2 | PHILIPPINES

Typhoon causes huge flooding Massive flooding hit the Philippine capital of Manila today as typhoon winds and rains isolated the historic old city where residents waded in waistdeep waters, dodging tree branches and debris. At least seven people were killed. Authorities ordered more than 100,000 people across the country to shelter from Typhoon Nesat’s rains and wind gusts of up to 106 miles per hour. Schools and offices were shuttered, and thousands were stranded by grounded flights and ferries kept in ports. The typhoon made landfall before dawn over eastern mountainous provinces of Isabela and Aurora, which face the Pacific Ocean, then headed inland through farmlands north of Manila, the government weather bureau said. It was packing sustained winds of 87 mph.

Panel proposes investing in pharmaceutical company

Finance minister out after dispute

By Andy Hyland ahyland@ljworld.com

OLATHE — The Kansas Bioscience Authority’s investment committee voted Monday to recommend making an investment in a Wichita pharmaceutical company and spending funds to retain a Kansas University professor. The committee recommended a $225,000 grant for Wichita-based JCB Laboratories Inc., a company specializing in the

it will carry twice the amount of crude oil and could require more pumping stations here. Jeff Glendening, with the Kansas Chamber of Commerce, told the state department officials at the hearing

that the pipeline has been good for Kansas. Last summer when crews worked to complete the pipeline in Kansas, TransCanada spent more than $461 million in the state. And another $8 million was returned to the state in sales and use taxes. “It created jobs at a time when we needed jobs,” Glendening said. By late afternoon, nearly 100 people had signed up to speak at the all-day public hearing. Outside, Rabbi Moti Rieber

Russia’s influential finance minister was forced out Monday following a televised confrontation with President Dmitry Medvedev, who had angrily demanded that Alexei Kudrin immediately explain his criticism of Medvedev’s policies or resign. The open conflict within Russia’s leadership follows the announcement over the weekend that Prime Minister Vladimir Putin plans to return to the presidency next year and Medvedev would then take his old job as prime minister. Russia will have a presidential vote in March, but Putin is sure to win. The departure of Kudrin is likely to unsettle investors and further shake Russia’s markets. A longtime member of Putin’s team, he has been finance minister since 2000 and his tight hold over the budget has been seen as key to Russia’s economic stability.

Riders to gather for Octoginta as Pipeline end of cycling season approaches

CONTINUED FROM PAGE 3A

By Karrey Britt kbritt@ljworld.com

The Lawrence Bicycle Club encourages cyclists to join the 42nd annual Octoginta Oct. 8-9, which typically draws about 650 riders. There are several events — a race, swap meet and various recreational rides — scheduled during the weekend, and lots of food will be available, one of the main draws. Justin Graham, event director, said the event would kick off with a USA Cyclingsanctioned, 6.2-mile race that begins at 8:30 a.m. Saturday just two miles east of Lawrence at the intersection of East 1750 and North 1400 roads. Classes are available for all ages and skills, but participants must have a USAC annual license or they can purchase a one-day license for $10. Riders start at oneminute intervals, and prizes are awarded. At 9:30 a.m., a 30-mile casual ride through Douglas County starts at Broken Arrow Park, 31st and Louisiana streets. The ride is followed by a swap meet at 2 p.m. at the park. Graham said people can bring old bikes, new bikes, parts — whatever they might want to trade or sell.

ON THE SCHEDULE Saturday: ! 7 a.m.-8:15 a.m. — Registration for the 6.2-mile time trial race, which is a USA Cycling sanctioned event.

French toast will be served before the event. Minestrone soup and sandwiches will be served after the rides. Brats and sauerkraut will be offered to the 80-mile riders before heading back to Lawrence. “It’s traditionally a seasonclosing ride, so the cycling season is winding down and, hopefully, the leaves are changing, so you get nice foliage,” Graham said. “It’s nice and cool, too.” For more information or to register, visit the lbc-cycling. com.

The main attraction begins at 8:30 a.m. Sunday with an 80-mile or 40-mile ride beginning at Broken Arrow Park. “The route is traditionally a secret, and we don’t tell riders until they show up the day of,” Graham said. “We promise that if you can do a 40mile ride in this area, then you will have no problem, and the same thing with the 80.” Graham said support sta— Health reporter Karrey Britt can be tions would be available every 15 miles with plenty of food reached at 832-7190.

Two Jewish organizations affiliated with Kansas University will host celebrations related to the upcoming Jewish new year holidays. “Generally, the Jewish new year is one of the most popular Jewish holidays, and it’s about fresh beginnings,” said Rabbi Zalman Tiechtel of the Chabad Center for Jewish Life, 1203 W. 19th St. The Chabad Center, which serves KU and surrounding communities, will offer several services and celebrations around the upcoming holidays of Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur, he said. Rosh Hashana, the first of the High Holidays, begins after sundown Wednesday and extends until nightfall Thursday. Yom Kippur, the Jewish day of atonement, begins after sundown Oct. 7 and extends until nightfall Oct. 8.

For Rosh Hashana, the Chabad Center will host a service welcoming the new year at 7 p.m. Wednesday, followed by a new year dinner at 7:45 p.m. On Thursday and Friday, morning services are scheduled for 9:30 a.m., and the holiday shofar (a festive horn) will be blown at 11 a.m., followed by a holiday lunch. Also at 3 p.m. Thursday, the center will host a “Tashlich” prayer at Potter Lake, Tiechtel said. All other services will be at the Burge Union, 1601 Irving Hill Road, and will be free and open to the public. KU Hillel also has programming scheduled for Rosh Hashana, said Carly Brown, program director for KU Hillel. An Erev Rosh Hashana (or “Rosh Hashana Eve”) service is set for 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, and a Rosh Hashana Shabbat dinner is scheduled

from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. Friday. Both events are at KU Hillel, 722 N.H. All the events are free and open to the public. “It’s for anybody and everybody,” Brown said. The Chabad Center will also provide services associated with Yom Kippur. At 6:45 p.m. Oct. 7, the Chabad Center will host evening services, along with morning services at 9:30 a.m. on Oct. 8, including “Yizkor,” remembering the departed, at noon. At 6:30 p.m. Oct. 8, the Chabad Center will host a closing service, followed by a buffet to break the day of fasting. “Our goal is to provide these opportunities for anyone who’s interested,” Tiechtel said. — Higher education reporter Andy Hyland can be reached at 832-6388.

COFFEYVILLE

Feds sue refinery over 2007 oil spill WICHITA (AP) — The Justice Department has sued the Coffeyville refinery for more than $4.18 million in civil penalties and clean-up costs stemming from a 2007 oil spill into floodwaters of the Verdigris River, plus additional, unspecified fines for other environmental violations. A civil complaint filed Friday in U.S. District Court also seeks a court order forcing Coffeyville Resources Refining & Marketing to comply with numerous environmental regulations designed to

prevent additional spills or damage. Company spokesman Steve Eames said Monday that the company is aware of the lawsuit but hasn’t yet seen it. “We are working diligently to clean up any remaining issues,” Eames said, declining further comment. About 2,145 barrels of oil leaked from the refinery into the river during flooding in July 2007, according to the complaint. The government is seeking up to $1,100 in civil penalties for each barrel spilled, a figure

forget the consequences of a pipeline that goes directly over your aquifer,” he said. Frank Bowker, a member of Pipeliners Local 798, came from McPherson to show support for the pipeline. He said he believed the pipeline to be the safest and cleanest way to transport crude oil. And, he said, without the pipeline, the crude oil would be hauled in trucks, rail cars and ships to be refined in places like China,

which has far fewer environmental regulations than the United States. “It’s not just because I would have a job or some of my friends would have a job,” Bowker said. “But I would like to see it because it is the safest way to transport this type of material.” — Reporter Christine Metz can be reached at 832-6352.

amounting to nearly $2.36 million. Most of the spill involved crude oil that overflowed an above-ground storage tank. But some diesel oil leaked from another storage tank that was moved off its foundation by floodwaters. The refinery’s sewer system also flooded, discharging some oily water, according to the complaint. Along with the civil penalties for each barrel spilled, the government is seeking reimbursement for $1.82 million spent to clean up the spill.

Blake Latchman, Kansas State history student, Manhattan “Nope. After — hopefully just — four years of college, I should be able to find a job. I think I can and will.”

• A 19-year-old female Kansas University student reported to Lawrence police Saturday that someone had broken a car window on her vehicle and caused $1,000 in damage between 10:30 p.m. Friday and 12:37 a.m. Saturday in the 100 block of West Eighth Street. • Lawrence police Monday were investigating comments someone made in a phone conversation with a Douglas County District Court clerk. Police spokeswoman Kim Murphree said the court clerk’s office called emergency dispatchers about 9:45 a.m. Monday to report that “a person had called and expressed frustration with the disposition of a case and made comments that the clerk found disturbing enough to notify law enforcement.” Murphree said officers were still investigating the case and that police at this time would not release further details about the call or other information.

CONDITION UPDATE

Barbara Gordon, Web developer for Mass Street Music, Lawrence “No, I wouldn’t, unless maybe I was out of work for more than six months. Even then, I have a network of great friends who could help me if I needed it.”

• A Topeka man and a Perry woman who were injured Sunday afternoon in a motorcycle accident in Jefferson County were both treated and released from a Topeka hospital, a Stormont-Vail Regional Healthcare spokeswoman said Monday. Robert D. Rhoads Jr., 40, and Kristina H. Rhoads, 48, were injured in the accident at 4:30 p.m. Sunday on U.S. Highway 24 about six miles northwest of Lawrence, according to the Kansas Highway Patrol.

INJURY ACCIDENTS • Two people were hospitalized in Douglas County last weekend after falling asleep at the wheel and being involved in separate accidents, said Sgt. Steve Lewis, a sheriff’s spokesman. Lewis said Julian Howard, 36, of Ottawa, lost control of his vehicle about 11 p.m. Friday while headed south on U.S. Highway 59 near Pleasant Grove. He fell asleep and failed to negotiate a curve causing his vehicle to strike a fence and roll over several times. Howard was

Two hours later on the Farmers Turnpike, or North 1800 Road northwest of Lawrence, a 36-year-old Lawrence woman also fell asleep while driving east near East 700 Road and struck a mailbox. Lindsay Labonte, the driver, was taken to LMH, where she was also treated and released. Her 14-year-old passenger was not injured. No citations were issued, Lewis said. • A 63-year-old Topeka man was injured in a motorcycle accident Sunday afternoon near Big Springs. Lewis said Robert Hauer failed to negotiate a curve on County Road 1023 just north of U.S. Highway 40, and his motorcycle went off the road. The accident report was not yet complete Monday, but Lewis said Hauer’s injuries were believed to be minor. He was taken by ground ambulance to Stormont-Vail Regional Health Center in Topeka. • One man was hospitalized after a rollover accident on U.S. Highway 40 on Monday afternoon. A single car left the roadway, about nine miles west of Lawrence, from the north shoulder, over corrected and then flipped into the south ditch. The car landed on its wheels, but facing the opposite direction, according to Kansas Highway Patrol reports. The driver, a 29-year-old Topeka man, was treated and released at Lawrence Memorial Hospital.

Utilities CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1A

of transfer for the last several years, although it did not have a policy in place that specifically called for such a transfer to be made. The lack of a policy has been an issue that the city’s auditor has raised multiple times during the last four years. “I hate to say it is just a transparency issue, but to some extent it is,” said City Auditor Michael Eglinski. In 2012, the city will have to collect about $1 million in water and sewer rates to meet the payment-in-lieu of taxes provision. The policy also would apply to the city’s solid waste service and its stormwater management program, which are both services that rely on rates instead of taxes. The solid waste service — the city’s trash service — would have to collect $14,376 in rates to make the payment, while the stormwater program would need to collect $73,397 in rates. The proposed policy, though, is silent on whether the city’s utilities should be required to make a payment in lieu of taxes to the county and the school district. Private utilities, like Westar, are required to pay property taxes to those jurisdictions. Corliss on Monday said he didn’t think this new policy would put the county or the school district in a position to start asking for a similar payment. “I guess I can see the argument, but historically we have looked at those as separate issues,” Corliss said. The proposed policy also gives the city the authority to

make transfers of rate money into the general fund for several other reasons. They include: ! A payment in lieu of a franchise fee. Most utilities — like electric, gas, telephone and cable utilities — pay a franchise fee in order to use the city’s right of way to house their infrastructure. The city’s publicly owned utility is not required to pay a franchise fee. But the proposal recommends it should make a payment to the general fund in order to compensate the city for its right-of-way. State law caps most franchise fees to no more than 5 percent of a utility’s gross revenues. Corliss, however, is recommending that the city be allowed to charge up to 7 percent to the city’s water and sewer utility. He said waterline breaks are a major problem for city streets, and thus justify a higher rate. “Anybody who has driven down Kentucky Street can see the inconvenience of a waterline project,” Corliss said. “Even though the street is patched, it is never the same.” For 2012, the policy would allow for $2.18 million in rates to be transferred from the city’s water and sewer fund to cover the paymentin-lieu of a franchise fee provision. For solid waste, the payment would be $766,912. For stormwater, it would be $206,675. ! The policy would allow the city to make a transfer to cover the cost of general services the utilities receive from the city, such as services from the legal department, human resources, payroll and other functions that are done by City Hall but would

have to be paid for independently if the business were operating on its own. The policy allows for $969,140 in overhead charges to the water and sewer fund, $320,312 from solid waste, and $80,298 from the stormwater fund. ! In total, the policy would allow for $4.7 million in transfers of rate money to the city’s general operating fund in 2012. But Corliss notes that the policy does not require the city to make the full transfer. In 2012, the city is estimated to transfer $3.6 million. Corliss said he disagrees with some concerns that the transfers are an attempt to generate money for the general fund without having to raise the property tax mill levy, which historically has been politically difficult at City Hall. Water and sewer rate increases, however, have received more support from commissioners in recent years. “I don’t think that is the case,” Corliss said. “I think the policy we have proposed provides a good rationale, but we will want to continue to see if we can refine it.” — City reporter Chad Lawhorn can be reached at 832-6362.

KU professors recognized for work By Andy Hyland ahyland@ljworld.com

A professor who teaches taxation in Kansas University’s School of Business and a KU Medical Center professor whose research looks for ways to repair damaged livers are the recipients of the 2011 Chancellors Club Ford awards for teaching and research. Allen Ford is a distinguished professor in the business school’s accounting area and has been on the KU faculty since 1976. Ford said he was extremely pleased to receive the award for teaching that recognizes achievement during his entire career. “To be one that’s selected for this, I’m still taking it in,” he said, adding that there are many great teachers at KU. “I’m extremely pleased and

extremely flattered.” O. Maurice Joy, a colleague who nominated him, said in a release that Ford is a rare professor who “blows the top off the charts in both popularity and rigor.” Joy also pointed out that Ford teaches tax accounting courses, which “are not for the fainthearted,” he said. Jaeschke “I think taxes are very interesting,” Ford said. “They’ve said there are only two things that are certain, and that’s death and taxes.” Among the two, he said, he’d rather talk about the taxes. Hartmut Jaeschke, a professor and researcher in KUMC’s department of pharmacology, toxicology and therapeutics, earned the award for research. Jaeschke, who grew up in Germany, has taught at KU since 2006. His research focuses on

liver damage from various pharmaceuticals, including acetaminophen, the active ingredient in several painkillers and one of the most commonly used drugs in the country. “Dr. Jaeschke’s early work has become the foundation of our understanding of acute inflammatory liver injury, and his current research continues at the leading edge in his field,” said Alex Lentsch, vice chairman for research at the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine, in a prepared statement. “He has demonstrated scientific excellence and leadership, and he positively represents the University of Kansas on national and international stages.” Lentsch was among the people who nominated Jaeschke. Each honor comes with a $9,000 award. The awards are provided through the KU Endowment Association. — Higher education reporter Andy Hyland can be reached at 832-6388.

Man to serve time for burglary spree By George Diepenbrock gdiepenbrock@ljworld.com

A Douglas County judge Monday morning sentenced a 25-year-old Overland Park man to serve more than 10 years in prison for a burglary spree at three west Lawrence homes earlier this year. District Judge Kay Huff also ordered Scott Blackmon to serve the prison term consecutive to three years he received in a 2008 robbery case in which prosecutors said he was armed with a machete. According to court records, District Judge Michael Malone in 2009 had sentenced Blackmon to probation in the old case after a plea, but prosecutors later revoked his probation. A jury in August convicted Blackmon of two counts of burglary and one count of

aggravated burglary plus six other lesser counts in the new case. On the aggravated burglary count, Blackmon was accused of robbing a Lawrence family’s home March 16 in the 2400 block of Atchison Avenue while the family’s teenage daughter was home alone. In a letter read in court Monday, the girl’s mother said her daughter now is afraid to stay home alone. “That young girl knew terror,” said prosecutor David Melton, a chief assistant district attorney. “She knew terror based on the defendant’s actions.” Huff also ordered Blackmon to pay a total of $1,500 restitution to two families for the burglaries. Blackmon was convicted of burglarizing two other west Lawrence homes around that time, and the jury acquitted

him of a fourth one, a March 3 burglary of the home of former Kansas University football players Jake Laptad, Justin Springer, Steven Foster and Drew Dudley. In that burglary, an Orange Bowl ring and Insight Bowl ring were taken. Defense attorney Michael Clarke had asked Huff to depart from sentencing guidelines and sentence him to five years in prison. “I can use this time to make myself a better man and can’t wait until I can make myself a better father,” Blackmon said in a brief statement in court. A co-defendant, Meglin Rego, who pleaded guilty to burglary and conspiracy, testified against Blackmon. — Reporter George Diepenbrock can be reached at 832-7144.

Kansas honor Recognizing former U.S. Sen. Bob Dole will get the new Kansas Walk of Honor off to a strong start.

I

t’s entirely appropriate that former U.S. Sen. Bob Dole should be the first Kansan to earn a spot on the new Kansas Walk of Honor. On Friday, Dole and his wife, Elizabeth, will be in Topeka to witness the unveiling of a bronze plaque at the southeast corner of the Kansas Statehouse lawn. Plans call for the state to add up to three plaques a year to the Walk of Honor, which is intended to recognize people with significant connections to Kansas who have made notable contributions at the state and national level. Dole certainly sets the standards for those who will follow him on the Walk of Honor. In addition to his distinguished service in the U.S. Congress, he has been actively involved in a variety of projects and efforts on behalf of U.S. military veterans and Americans with disabilities. Lawrence and Kansas University are especially fortunate to be the home of the Dole Institute of Politics, which is dedicated to advancing Dole’s belief in the value of public service and citizen participation in the nation’s political process. The Kansas Historical Foundation plans to establish a small committee to oversee and consider nominations for the Walk of Honor. Members of the committee are bound to consider many worthy nominees, but Dole will be a hard act for any of them to follow.

Great start

Obama must move beyond defense WASHINGTON — It was painful to watch President Obama last week at the United Nations, backing away from the goal of Palestinian statehood he had championed when he took office. The best that could be said was that it was a bit of foreignpolicy realism, acknowledging the political and strategic fact that the United States will never abandon Israel in the U.N. Security Council. Obama is playing defense in foreign policy these days, trying not to make costly mistakes. Like a football team protecting a slim lead, he wants to avoid fumbles that would cost him the game. The idea of daring offensive moves — the risky touchdown pass — is a distant memory from 2009. This is a team that chants to itself: “Dee-fense!” There are worse things than playing cautiously. The big gamble may be tempting, but it can lead to disaster, as Menachem Begin found with his invasion of Lebanon in 1982, and George W. Bush learned after his occupation of Iraq in 2003. Though commentators may be howling for a big, bold move, the correct choice is often the one that hedges against really bad outcomes. Pappa Bush (“41”) was teased on “Saturday Night Live” with the mocking phrase “wouldn’t be prudent,” but he politely backed his way right into the dismantlement of the Soviet Union. It should be said that Obama is playing defense reasonably

well. There are big, long-lasting mistakes lurking in the Arab Spring — chief among them a chaotic implosion of Syria that could trigger a wave of sectarian massacres on the order of Iraq in 2006. Obama has understood the need to be cautious about the Syrian transition, even if he gets hammered sometimes in the editorial pages. Obama is hedging, too, in Afghanistan and Pakistan. The danger there is the perception that America is leaving, and the ensuing scramble to fill the power vacuum. Recognizing that problem, Defense Secretary Leon Panetta is already talking about the likelihood the U.S. will keep some troops in

Afghanistan after 2014. Obama could have avoided a lot of his current Af-Pak problems if he hadn’t coupled his December 2009 troop surge with a pledge to start withdrawing those troops in July 2011. The wiser course would have been deliberate ambiguity. The retreat on the Palestinian issue must be a bitter pill for Obama. Regaining America’s role as an evenhanded mediator seemed his top priority when he took office. His first interview as president was with the Arabic news channel alArabiya; his April 2009 speech in Cairo was a masterful signal that America was ready to engage its Muslim adversaries and make peace. Obama knew that America’s security, and Israel’s, required creation of a Palestinian state. What happened to that promise? It’s a long and depressing story, but the simple answer is that Obama got outfoxed. He decided not to immediately enunciate core principles for an agreement, which would have built on the remarkable progress made in 2008 by Ehud Olmert and Mahmoud Abbas, a story that awaits Condoleezza Rice’s memoirs. Instead, he picked a fight over Israeli settlements that landed him in the morass of Israeli coalition politics. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu waited Obama out. Every month that the diplomatic wrangling went on,

Obama grew weaker politically and Netanyahu stronger. The denouement was Obama’s speech Wednesday, in which he spoke almost ruefully of “peace in an imperfect world.” His best hope now is that he won’t actually have to veto a statehood resolution. Talk about playing defense. While crediting Obama’s caution, I wish he would study the example of Henry Kissinger, who was playing a weak hand in 1971 when the Vietnam War was unraveling. Kissinger dealt a new set of cards by traveling secretly to China. He recalls in his memoirs that in his first meeting with Zhou Enlai, he cautiously opted for a broad, philosophical discussion of “our perceptions of global and especially Asian affairs.” “The statesman finds opportunity,” even in adversity, notes Robert Blackwill, a Republican foreign policy expert who worked for Kissinger and both Bushes. That’s a good prescription for Obama. He’s in damage-limitation mode — sensible enough in a time of uncertainty, but not really a strategy. What’s the opportunity — in Pakistan, in India, in Turkey, in Syria — and yes, in the Palestinian state that inevitably will be declared? Playing defense works if you’ve got a lead to protect. But it’s not enough when that lead is slipping away. — David Ignatius is a columnist for Washington Post Writers Group.

OLD HOME TOWN Helping restock a local food bank is just one way KU students give back to the Lawrence community.

From the Lawrence Daily Journal-World for Sept. 27, 1911: YEARS “Today was AGO Lawrence Day IN 1911 at the Douglas County Fair. At noon today all Lawrence took on a regular holiday appearance for almost every place of business closed up at noon so that the employees could go to the Fair. Banks, drug stores, every place was closed at noon, and the employees almost without exception went out to the grounds to mingle with the crowds.... It was very warm, but that made it very pleasant to be out of doors, with no signs of rain or other threatening weather. Lawrence people are always loyal to their own day at the Fair, and today was no exception.”

W

hat a great way to kick off homecoming activities at Kansas University. On Sunday, KU students parked a crimson and blue bus at the 23rd Street Dillons store and collected nearly four tons of food to be donated to a local food bank. This year’s “Stuff the Bus” event collected 7,861 pounds of food for Just Food. That topped last year’s total of 7,300 pounds. A variety of fun events are scheduled throughout the coming week on the KU campus, leading up to the KU-Texas Tech football game next Saturday. Amid the many events scheduled for homecoming week, it’s great to see KU students once again stepping up to support a charitable effort in Lawrence. It’s another reminder of the important role KU, its employees and its students play in the community.

America’s perpetual presidential campaign By Kevin Horrigan St. Louis Post-Dispatch

Politically, if there’s one thing I think we can all agree on, it’s that there’s nothing we can all agree on. But one thing comes close: The presidential campaign is too darned long. A couple of years ago, I reread Theodore White’s “The Making of the President, 1960” and was stunned to realize that John F. Kennedy didn’t officially enter the race until Jan. 2, 1960; Richard M. Nixon followed a week later. Both men had been plotting to run for years, but these days, if you waited until January of election year to officially get into the race, you’d be dead on arrival. These days we have nearly perpetual campaigns. No doubt, there are politicians who already are holding secret meetings to organize their 2016 campaigns. The only break we’re getting this year is that only one party’s nomination is up for grabs. The British do this right. By law, Parliamentary elections are held on the 17th day after the previous Parliament is dissolved, not counting weekends and holidays. If the United States adopted this timetable, it would be way, way cheaper. We could finance the elections out of public funds, ending the legalized bribery that is the campaign finance system. We’d compress all the horrible campaign commercials, de-

These days we have nearly perpetual campaigns. No doubt, there are politicians who already are holding secret meetings to organize their 2016 campaigns.”

bates and general backstabbing to roughly the period between the start of the baseball playoffs and the end of the World Series. Think of the peace of mind. We don’t do it this way because we’ve never done it this way. The current system evolved (if that’s the word) gradually and now is entrenched, supporting an entire class of influential people. The political class is to politics what those birds called “oxpeckers” are to rhinoceroses and water buffaloes: They sit on their backs and dine off the ticks. Today’s campaigns primarily are a way to transfer money from special interests to local television stations, while feeding a lot of oxpeckers along the way. A big-bucks donor writes a check, which is spent paying consultants who design the strategy, produce the commercials and buy time in whatever TV market the campaign wants to reach that week. In 2010, an off-year election, mind you, more than $3 billion was spent on political advertising. Complicit in all of this is my industry, the National Associa-

tion of Pundits. Most members of NAP are too lazy or too dumb to worry about the complex nuances of public policy. We ought to join the National Association of Turf Writers; clearly we’re more comfortable with horse racing. Plus, we’re easily distracted. We’re like Dory, the Blue Tangfish with short-term memory problems in “Finding Nemo.” When Marlin the clownfish wants to distract her, he says, “Look! Something shiny!” And off they go. Consider how all of this is playing out in the recent televised “debates” among half of the 16 declared candidates for the Republican presidential nomination. You get into the debates only when someone arbitrarily decides you’ve gotten 2 percent to 4 percent in a reliable poll somewhere. This leaves out my own personal favorite declared GOP candidate, former Louisiana Gov. Buddy Roemer, with whom I disagree on practically everything except the need to get money out of politics. If he could do that, I’d ignore the fact that it would be weird to have a president named “Buddy” and vote for him anyway. Get money out politics and the rest of the problems would take care themselves. But Roemer is not something shiny. For that matter, neither is pizza baron Herman Cain or former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum or former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman or craggy old Rep.

Ron Paul of Texas. The word “tarnish” was practically invented for former House Speaker Newt Gingrich of Georgia. Rep. Michele Bachmann of Minnesota had a brief shiny moment that now appears to be over, and former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney has enough money that he can pay people to keep him shiny. The shiny new guy is Texas Gov. Rick Perry, so in the debates everybody picks on him. The cable networks are helping to sponsor these debates, so they’re long on show-biz effects and short on substance. The NAP members then deconstruct them like they’re reading The Racing Form, forgetting the fact that even the highest-rated debate so far — the Sept. 7 affair during which Perry made his debut — drew only about 8 million viewers. And unless those viewers live in Iowa or one of the early primary states, it’s unlikely they’ll have a chance to vote for most of these candidates come next January or February; small-state primaries being a separately stupid part of the way America chooses its presidents. It’s only the most important office in the world. If Americans are to get the government we deserve, we need to fix the way we fill it. — Kevin Horrigan is a columnist for the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

Man accused of abusing snake MANHATTAN — A 45-yearold Manhattan man is facing several charges after an incident involving a boa constrictor and a large sword. WIBW reports Riley County police officers were called to a home Friday afternoon where friends of the man said he was acting weird and throwing a boa constrictor down on the ground repeatedly. Police say officers were attempting to arrest the man for animal cruelty when he started swinging a large sword around and threatening them. The man was subdued and charged with aggravated assault on a law enforcement officer, obstructing the legal process, disorderly conduct and animal cruelty. He also was charged with criminal damage because police say he damaged a window in the patrol car with his handcuffs on the way to jail.

Difficult Boot Camp begins ——

Day 1 of conditioning brings mixed results for KU hoops players By Gary Bedore

KANSAS CITY TIGHT END LEONARD POPE, RIGHT, REACTS with teammate Dwayne Bowe after scoring a touchdown against the Chargers on Sunday in San Diego. Pope drew a 15-yard penalty for taking off his helmet, which essentially has summed up Kansas City’s 0-3 start to the 2011 season.

gbedore@ljworld.com

Chiefs struggling to find rhythm KANSAS CITY, MO. (AP) — Leonard Pope cradled the touchdown pass from quarterback Matt Cassel with just less than five minutes left in the game, pulling the Kansas City Chiefs within a field goal of the San Diego Chargers in a critical game on the road. Then he pulled his helmet off, and the penalty flags flew. Pope was given a 15-yard unsportsmanlike-conduct penalty for taking his helmet off while still on the field. The defense ultimately held, giving Kansas City a chance to win in the closing minutes, but the mental mistake demonstrated a frustrating trend that developed in a 20-17 loss. For the first time all season, the Chiefs did some things that gave coaches, players and fans reasons to be hopeful. And then they did something moments later to dash that optimism. “Shooting ourselves in our foot,” fullback Le’Ron McClain said, repeating the old cliché that rings especially true for the defending AFC West champs, who are off to an 0-3 start. It wasn’t just penalties, though there were certainly plenty of those. But injuries, missed field goals, defensive letdowns and an inability to punch the ball into the end zone after solid, sustained drives all conspired on several occasions to turn positives into negatives. Kansas City didn’t manage a single first down in the first half against San Diego, gaining all of 34 yards, but came out of the break and held the Chargers to a three-and-out. It gave the Chiefs the ball across midfield and they managed to go the rest of the way for a touchdown. Rather than make a stand on defense, though, the Chargers marched 80 yards in less than 4 minutes for an answering touchdown, negating any momentum Kansas City built.

Tech QB Doege — KU’s next foe — lighting up stat sheet By Matt Tait mtait@ljworld.com

In 2009, with Texas Tech quarterbacks suffering injuries all around him, a freshman named Seth Doege was thrust into a starting role for then-head coach Mike Leach’s high-octane passing offense.

SEABURY ACADEMY JUNIOR PADGET SUTHERLAND MAKES A RETURN against Kansas City Christian. The Seahawks fell, 6-4, on Monday at the Jayhawk Tennis Center. Story on page 3B.

Kansas University freshman basketball walk-on Christian Garrett stopped to chat with a reporter and KU administrator as he traipsed to the weight room for a Boot Camp lifting session Monday afternoon in Anderson Family Strength and Conditioning Center. “Tired,” Garrett said with a smile, asked how he felt midway through the first day of Bill Self’s two-week Boot Camp, which opened with an hourlong conditioning session at 6 a.m. in KU’s hoops practice facility. “I puked,” the 6-foot-3, 170-pounder confessed. “I was going hard the whole time, though,” he added with a sense of pride. Garrett wasn’t the first Jayhawk in Self’s nine years at KU to lose his breakfast during strenuous up-before-the-dawn sprints and defensive slides and assuredly won’t be the last. Guys like Darrell Arthur and Chase Buford, among others, have used the trash barrels that line the court. “It wasn’t Wesley shocking to me. It’s not my first time around,” KU sophomore forward Justin Wesley said of the rigorous opening day of his second Self Boot Camp. “It was kind of bad just because of getting up (at 5 a.m.). The running wasn’t really that bad. It’s more like a practice, being mentally tough and getting in shape. We weren’t that tired. I was actually impressed how we did as a team.” The 6-foot-8, 220-pounder acknowledged the fact the first day of Boot Camp is usually the easiest. “It’s more like a teaching day,” Wesley said. “We haven’t got into the real mix of it. I’m kind of anxious to see how it’s all going to pan out. “I think everybody has a good attitude about it. Everybody is picking each other up when they are having trouble with the running and stuff. We are all coming together.”

Kansas State and Iowa State were picked to finish near the bottom of the Big 12 standings before the 2011 season. After undefeated starts in nonconference play, they will get a chance this week to show whether they’re contenders or pretenders. The Wildcats will play host to No. 15 Baylor on Saturday, trying to start 4-0 for the second straight year after failing to do so six years in a row. Iowa State, which won each of its first three

“That’s just kind of his stamp on him rebuilding that program.” The Wildcats needed a goalline stand in the final minute to preserve a 28-24 win at Miami on Saturday, with linebacker Tre Walker making three straight tackles inside the 2-yard line to earn conference defensive player of the week honors. “To be able to do what they did really shows you a great deal about their determination, their spirit, their toughness,” Please see BIG 12, page 3B

Hand bruised, Vick backs off ref-bashing PHILADELPHIA â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Michael Vick went home with a broken hand and woke up with only a bad bruise. Now thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a testament to the miracle of modern medicine. Well, not exactly. Eagles coach Andy Reid said a CT scan Monday showed the star quarterback has a hand â&#x20AC;&#x153;contusion.â&#x20AC;? Reid said X-rays taken during Philadelphiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 29-16 loss to the New York Giants on Sunday showed Vick may have a fracture. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Today, he had a scan and it showed there was no break,â&#x20AC;? Reid said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was a blood vessel sitting above the bone. That happens at times with X-rays. The blood vessel makes it look like it was a fracture. There is still a bunch of swelling. It is sensitive to the touch. The positive is there is not a fracture there.â&#x20AC;? Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s uncertain if Vick, who throws left-handed, will play when the Eagles (1-2) host the San Francisco 49ers (2-1) next Sunday. Meanwhile, Vick says he wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t complain about not getting calls anymore. Vick blasted officials Sunday, saying he takes too many late hits without getting the benefit of roughing-the-passer penalties. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The refs have to do their jobs and they have tons of things to look over,â&#x20AC;? Vick said Monday. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was kind of out of character and being too candid in that aspect. Ultimately, I have respect for the referees and their decision to make calls. You wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t hear me complaining about it no more.â&#x20AC;?

ARLINGTON, TEXAS (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Tony Romoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ribs held up just fine. So did Dan Baileyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s leg. Romo persevered through pain to lead enough deep drives to set up Bailey for six field goals, including a 40-yarder with 1:57 left to give the Cowboys an 18-16 victory over the Washington Redskins on Monday night. Dallasâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Anthony Spencer chopped the ball from Washingtonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Rex Grossman with 28 seconds left, and linebacker Sean Lee recovered it, setting off a celebration inside Cowboys Stadium. Dallas coach Jason Garrett dropped to a knee and pumped his fist wildly at being 2-1 â&#x20AC;&#x201D; guaranteeing no repeat of last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s miserable 1-7 start. The Cowboys are even tied for first place in the NFC East, along with Washington (2-1), which was seeking its first 3-0 start since 2005. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This was a great win for us,â&#x20AC;? said Romo, who was 22 of 36 for 255 yards. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was a hard, hard game. ... We had a million mistakes tonight. We have a lot of young guys, but they were out there for a reason. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll get it right.â&#x20AC;? Romo lacked zip and accuracy much of the game, and he had trouble with four snaps from his new center. But he was at his best with the game on the line. He hit Laurent Robinson for a 25-yard gain to set up Baileyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fifth field goal. He then set up the winner on third-and-21 with a scrambling 30-yarder to Dez Bryant that happened to come against cornerback DeAngelo Hall, who last week said he was hoping â&#x20AC;&#x153;to put my helmet on whateverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hurt.â&#x20AC;? The Romo-Bailey combination has worked like a charm for two straight games. Against San Francisco a week ago Sunday, Bailey made a tying field goal at the end of regulation, then the winner in overtime. Bailey is an undrafted rookie who was named the nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s top kicker in college last season, at Oklahoma State. His other kicks Monday night covered 41 (twice), 32, 27 and 23 yards. The big story, though, was Romo and the other Dallas players who played through pain, such as Bryant, who missed the previous game with a thigh injury, and Felix Jones, who separated a shoulder against the 49ers but ran for a career-high 115 yards and caught three passes for 40 more. Romo was was sacked once and threw an interception that was more like a punt on a play foiled by one of several bad snaps from Phil Costa. Two shot toward Romo when he wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t ready for them, two others were quite off-target. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to get that fixed,â&#x20AC;? Romo said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t happen.â&#x20AC;? Grossman kept Washington playing with a lead for much of the game, but couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t put it away. He was 22 of 37 for 250 yards with a oneyard touchdown pass to Tim Hightower.

Manning might return INDIANAPOLIS â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Peyton Manning is still on Indianapolisâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; active roster and could return this season. Team officials said that part hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t changed. His role will change. On Monday, Colts owner Jim Irsay used Twitter to clarify comments he reportedly made during a private breakfast with Super Bowl donors, comments that indicated Indyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s franchise quarterback would miss the rest of this season. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t say Peyton out 4season FOR SURE,keeping him on ActiveRoster n taking it month by month/Outside chance of return n December possible,â&#x20AC;?

UConn would join ACC HARTFORD, CONN. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Connecticutâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s governor confirmed on Monday that the University of Connecticut is interested in becoming part of the Atlantic Coast Conference should that league expand to 16 teams.

Gov. Dannel P. Malloy, speaking to reporters outside his Capitol office, said he no longer expects the ACC to act quickly after adding Pittsburgh and Syracuse from the Big East earlier this month. Malloy said if Notre Dame isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t interested the ACC must decide if there is any compelling reason to expand again.

Guillen, White Sox part CHICAGO â&#x20AC;&#x201D; White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen was released from his contract Monday night to pursue other opportunities. Guillen met with owner Jerry Reinsdorf for about 30 minutes earlier in the day. Guillen said he told Reinsdorf he would like to return, but only for a contract extension for more money. He had one year remaining on his current deal. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We certainly cannot thank Ozzie enough for all he has done during his eight seasons as manager of the Chicago White Sox, highlighted by an unforgettable 2005 World Series championship,â&#x20AC;? Reinsdorf said in a release issued by the team following its 4-3 victory over the Toronto Blue Jays. The White Sox said in the release they retain the right to compensation should Guillen accept a managerial position with another major-league team for the 2012 season. Guillen, who had a 678-617 record with the White Sox, will not be in uniform for the remaining two games this year. The Florida Marlins talked to Chicago last year about acquiring the colorful Guillen, but the deal never materialized. They could bring him in now to lead the club into a new ballpark next season.

Marlinsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; McKeon to retire MIAMI â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Florida Marlins manager Jack McKeon says heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll retire after the season, ending at age 80 a three-month career comeback. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s already plotting his next return. The retirement announcement had been anticipated, and McKeon made it Monday before the teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s final series of the year. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the second-oldest manager in major-league history, and he joked he hopes to come back in a few years to surpass Connie Mack, who managed the Philadelphia Athletics until age 87.

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Melky Cabrera and Felipe Paulino were given fresh starts by Kansas City in 2011. The two showed Monday night why they have the Royals excited for 2012. Cabrera became the first Kansas City player in 11 years to reach 200 hits, and Paulino (4-6) won for the third time in his last four decisions as the Royals topped the Minnesota Twins, 7-3. Cabrera hit an infield single and scored the game’s opening run in the first inning, then another infield single for his 201st hit to spark a four-run sixth. He became the sixth player in Kansas City history to eclipse 200 hits and the first since Johnny Damon and Mike Sweeney both did it in 2000. Cabrera’s previous career best for hits in a season was 149 in 2007 while with the New York Yankees. “I’m very thankful for the Kansas City Royals organization for giving me the chance to play here every day,” Cabrera said through interpreter and teammate Brayan Pena. “I never thought this offseason I would have a sea-

ERIC HOSMER’S BROKEN BAT GOES FLYING INTO THE STANDS as he pops out. Nonetheless, the Royals beat the Twins, 7-3, on Monday in Minneapolis. son like I’ve had, but I work hard and try to do my best to improve my game.” Kevin Slowey (0-8) was tagged with the loss for Minnesota, its third straight against the Royals.

can take off and run — I can get a few yards.” Doege’s preferred method of gaining yards remains the pass. Through three games, Doege has gotten off to a blazing start, completing 89 of 115 passes (77 percent) for 949 yards, 11 touchdowns and zero interceptions. Those numbers include a record-setting performance against New Mexico two weeks ago, when Doege completed 40 of 44 passes in the Red Raiders’ victory. Doege’s 90.9 completion percentage was the highest in NCAA history for a QB with at least 40 completions. And because of that, Tuberville said his team would continue to lean on the right arm of its starting quarterback. “We’ll throw first, run second,” said Tuberville, when asked if Tech’s recent rushing success had made him rethink his offense. “But we are going to take what they give us, depending on what they do, depending on how many people they put on the line of scrimmage. We are not saying every game we are going to throw it no matter what you do, you just don’t do that.” Although his hot start and his team’s solid numbers have made Doege feel good about Tech’s offense, the veteran QB said he realized things were about to change with the Red Raiders set to jump into Big 12 play. Asked Monday what he knew about KU, Doege was vague but respectful. “I know they are a Big 12 opponent. I know it’s the first conference game and I know they will be excited to play us. I haven’t watched too much to have a really

good feeling, but we need to be ready to play. Every Big 12 game is a big game.” Added Tuberville: “(Kansas) will be the best team that we’ve played, so we want to make sure that we give ourselves a chance.”

a late stand should only give the Wildcats a lift heading into their game against the Bears (3-0) and star quarterback Robert Griffin III. “It’s certainly going to give them a lot of confidence and belief, and that’s your first step into developing a really good football team because you have to have something you can hang your hat on,” Briles said. “That’s definitely a signature win against a great opponent on the road, and to win it in the fashion that they won it will certainly give their guys a lot of boost and energy,” he said. “I was very impressed.” Iowa State has been squeaking past opponents to maintain its place among sev-

Dorsey expected back After weeks of announcing that one of his players would miss some time because of an injury, KU coach Turner Gill got the chance to reveal the opposite on Monday morning. During the weekly Big 12 coaches teleconference, Gill told reporters that Patrick Dorsey was on pace to return from a foot injury that forced him to miss most the Dorsey first four weeks of the season. “I anticipate him to play,” said Gill of the 6-foot, 273-pound defensive tackle’s availability for this week’s Big 12 opener against Texas Tech. “He’s done well as far as practicing right now. As long as he doesn’t have any setbacks, we anticipate him to play. How much, we’ll just see how that goes.” Dorsey was lost to a broken foot midway through preseason camp in August. He initially was supposed to miss six to eight weeks but got back to practice a little quicker than originally thought. The senior from Houston started 11 games in 2010 and finished with 27 tackles and one sack. His return bolsters a thin

en Big 12 teams who’ll make it through September undefeated. The Cyclones edged Northern Iowa by a point in their opener, beat Iowa by three in triple overtime then won 24-20 at Connecticut two weeks ago. They had an off week leading up to the rematch against Texas (3-0), which will be trying to avenge its first loss in the series last season in Austin. “Iowa State beat us last year and I thought they outcoached us, they outplayed us, they outhit us, beat us on our own turf,” Longhorns coach Mack Brown said. “So, it’ll be a real challenge for us to go up there.” Paul Rhoads’ Cyclones have overcome 10 turnovers through three games, in part

Shepherd to play, too Gill also said that freshman wide receiver JaCorey Shepherd, one of the star’s of KU’s season-opening victory against McNeese State, would return from a groin injury that kept him on the sideline for KU’s loss at Georgia Tech. “I think everything is on schedule for him,” Gill said. “As long as he doesn’t have any setbacks, he’ll be ready to play, too.” Shepherd, 5-11, 170, of Mesquite, Texas, caught three balls for 107 yards and two touchdowns in the opener. For the season, he has five receptions for 136 yards and two TDs.

SEABURY ACADEMY SOPHOMORE ALICIA COTSORADIS MAKES A OVERHAND RETURN against Kansas City Christian on Monday at Jayhawk Tennis Facility.

Seabury tennis falls to KCC By Corey Thibodeaux cthibodeaux@ljworld.com

Seabury Academy’s girls tennis team lost its first match of the season, a 6-4 setback to Kansas City Christian on Monday at the Jayhawk Tennis Facility. Despite the tough matches, Seabury coach John Richey spoke in an encouraging tone when giving advice to his players during changeovers. “It’s not Wimbledon,” Richey said. Alicia Cotsoradis, Leah Spreckelmeyer and Emilie Padgett registered singles victories for the Seahawks. Padgett won two singles matches by scores of 8-2 and 8-1. Spreckelmeyer had no trouble in an 8-4 victory, while Cotsoradis won a close battle, 8-7(4). Richey said he wanted tennis to be fun and fair for everyone, which is why he isn’t constantly harping on the players. The results are working. “It’s a better a better atmosphere to see itself that way — a team that’s rooting for each other and supporting each other,” Richey said. “They feel like they can have success when their teammates do well.” Juniors Padget Sutherland and Raquel Dominguez have been the top performers and leaders this season, while sophomore Cotsoradis has stepped up into that role as well. It goes a lot further than earning victories on the tennis court. “They’ve done a good job of working with the younger girls and bringing them along to give us a complete team that can go compete with some of these bigger schools,” Richey said. Seabury’s next meet is 3 p.m. today at Topeka Hayden.

Tuberville familiar with KU Saturday’s match-up will be the second all-time between Gill and Tuberville as head coaches. The Jayhawks and Red Raiders have not met since 2009, but, in 2006, when Tuberville was at Auburn and Gill was in his first season at Buffalo, the Tigers topped the Bulls, 38-7, at Auburn. “There’s no carryover there,” Tuberville said. “But I know quite a few of the coaches on their staff. They will be well coached. I know (their) last outing was not very good but neither was ours.” The Red Raiders have won four straight in the series against the Jayhawks. KU’s last victory against Tech came in 2001, when the Jayhawks topped the Red Raiders, 34-31 in overtime in LubCONTINUED FROM PAGE 1B bock.

Chiefs

due to clutch play by transfer quarterback Steele Jantz. “They’re finding ways to win,” Brown said. “They’re fighting hard, they’ve got better players than I think probably they’ve had in many years, they’ve got more depth, they’ve got more speed and Paul’s doing a great job coaching them.” ISU and K-State are receiving votes in the Associated Press poll after going 7-6 last season. Brown said he thinks the Cyclones should be ranked. “Through three games this season, we’ve improved our football team,” said Rhoads, who has the Cyclones 3-0 for the first time since 2005. “We’ve got to keep that up as we go into our fourth game.”

On the Chiefs’ ensuing possession, they put together a 21-play drive — if you count penalties — that even impressed coach Todd Haley. But the drive ended when, on third-and-11 from the 18, a run by Thomas Jones up the middle gained just three yards and Ryan Succop had to trot onto the field for a field goal. It was a minor letdown after the offense had finally found its rhythm. “I’ve never been a part of a 21-play drive,” Haley said, “and that was a very positive thing, despite the penalties and only getting three points out of it.” The Chargers’ defense was worn down and the momentum was swinging back toward the Chiefs, but the defense again couldn’t make a stand.

Marcy Sugar and Kathy Mitchell

He may be a father, but not a dad Never one to put the Style Network and “thought-provoking” in the same sentence, I was struck by the sheer weird power of “Sperm Donor” (8 p.m.). Over the past few decades, the use of donors by married infertile couples and single women has grown exponentially, creating a brave new world of family dynamics and ethical dilemmas. This becomes glaring and apparent when we meet Ben. An astoundingly regular guy, Ben became a sperm donor during law school. Ten years later, he stumbled upon the Donor Sibling Registry. Most people on the site are the offspring of sperm donors who hope to find information about their “fathers” or to reach out to half siblings, born to other mothers. After submitting his name to the site, Ben was startled to find out that he was not responsible for a child or two, or even 20. He was the sperm donor “dad” to 74 kids. Ben’s reaction to this news, and the feelings of his friends and fiancee, go a long way toward showing the difference between men and women and comedy and tragedy. An old school pal laughs and exclaims, “You have a clan, man!” His fiancee worries about busloads of offspring crashing family reunions. It’s a nightmare. Things get a little uncomfortable when Ben decides to visit one of his “kids.” Is this wise? Curiosity or grandiosity? And how fair is this visit to the other 73? The 2010 drama “The Kids Are All Right” already found a great story in this powerful scenario. But that was about only two children in the same family. Imagine a movie about an everyday guy finding himself the unwitting patriarch of a virtual tribe! I can’t believe Judd Apatow hasn’t optioned the rights to Ben’s story.

“POV” (9 p.m., PBS) presents the award-winning documentary “Last Train Home.” Every year, more than 130 million rural workers who have moved to China’s cities return to their villages for New Year’s celebrations. This “commute” represents one of the largest migrations in human history. “Train” uses the occasion to examine the cost of that country’s rapid urbanization and industrialization.
