Federal judge refuses to block abortion insurance law By Roxana Hegeman Associated Press

WICHITA — A federal judge refused Thursday to block a new Kansas law restricting insurance coverage for abortions, saying opponents failed to prove their claim that legislators’ real intent was to create obstacles for women seeking abortions.

The law prohibits insurance companies from offering abortion coverage as part of general health plans, except when a woman’s life is at risk. Patients who want abortion coverage must buy supplemental policies, known as riders, covering only abortion. The ruling means that women seeking an abortion

in Kansas will need to law’s true intent was buy a rider or pay for to impose an unconthe procedure out-ofstitutional burden on pocket if their insurabortion seekers, and ance policies are new asked that the law be or were renewed after put on hold during the the law took effect court fight. July 1. U.S. District Judge COURTS The American Civil Wesley Brown reLiberties Union sued the state jected the request, saying the in August, arguing that the ACLU didn’t provide evidence

that the law “actually has the effect of creating a substantial obstacle to obtaining abortions.” The ACLU also claimed the law was discriminatory because men can buy a general health plan for all their reproductive needs, but Brown said the group failed to show a likelihood of prevailing on that claim, too.

Work progressing on hydroelectric site

But the judge told the ACLU it could try again, noting his decision wasn’t a final ruling on the merits of the group’s claims. He also ordered an expedited schedule so the case would move more quickly through the courts. The law was among several Please see ABORTION, page 6A

Theatre Lawrence exceeds $6.2M goal By Chad Lawhorn

Mike Yoder/Journal-World Photo

CREWS WITH KISSICK CONSTRUCTION CO., of Kansas City, Mo., continue to dig a deep hole below the Kansas River as they work Wednesday on a new $25 million hydroelectric power plant on the north bank of the Kansas River. Construction is expected to take about two years to complete. The plant will operate in conjunction with the plant that Bowersock owns on the south bank. The new plant will produce enough electricity to power about 3,300 homes per year. The Kansas City, Kan., Board of Public Utilities has signed a 25-year agreement to purchase all the power produced at the plant that will be used to power homes and businesses in Wyandotte County.

It was fitting that there was drama. Leaders with Theatre Lawrence announced on Thursday that a flurry of lastminute donations pushed its fundraising effort past their $6.2 million goal, ensuring the organization would not lose a pair of key grants that came with a Sept. 30 deadline. “It has been like Christmas every day,” Mary Doveton, executive director of Theatre Lawrence, said. “The last couple of weeks have literally produced hundreds of thousands of dollars. It has been so gratifying to see Doveton people respond.” Amidst a celebration of streamers and champagne, members of the group — formerly known as the Lawrence Community Theater — announced they had raised $6,486,000. That will be enough to follow through on plans to build a 300-seat theater in the Bauer Farm development near Sixth Street and Wakarusa Drive. Doveton estimated construction will begin this winter with completion in 12 to 15 months. The new theater will replace the group’s Please see THEATRE, page 2A

‘Green’ jobs bigger part of work landscape By Christine Metz

A builder who performs home energy audits. An office manager who looks for ways to green the supply chain. An auto mechanic who fixes hybrid vehicles. And an electrical lineman who is working on the smart grid. Those are all green jobs, said Jay Antle, executive director of Johnson County Community College’s Center for Sustainability.

Donna Ginther, director of Kansas University’s Center for Economic and Business Analysis, agrees it can be hard to define just exactly what a green job is.

Repaving and various improvements coming to K-10 starting Monday By Mark Fagan

The Kansas Highway 10 construction project is back on. Rumble strips and paved roadside shoulders are coming to that stretch of K-10 that runs from the edge of Law-

rence to the Johnson County line. Accompanying the safety improvements will be a new 1.5-inch-thick layer of pavement, giving the popular four-lane highway a fresh surface for the first time in 12 years. The work starts at 9 a.m.

Crews from Perry-based Hamm Construction will handle the $4.3 million job, scheduled to be finished in early November. Beginning Monday, crews will start patching areas that have major damage, starting at the eastern edge of Lawrence and working their way

“But it is really difficult to get a precise definition on what we mean by green jobs.” In 2010, the Kansas Department of Labor released a report that attempted to do just that. They placed green jobs into five categories: ! Renewable energy ! Energy efficiencies ! Agriculture and natural conservation ! Pollution prevention and environmental cleanup ! Clean transportation and fuels The data, which was collected from nearly 3,000 employers in 2009, found that the state had 20,044 people employed in primary green jobs, which was about 1.5 percent of the workforce. Another 26,380 people were employed in secondary green jobs. Those employers predicted that by 2012, there would be 30,236 primary green jobs. The biggest growth was anticipated in the renewable energy sector, where jobs were expected to increase by 121 percent. In the energy efficiency category, which had the most jobs, the number was anticipated to increase by 56.9 percent.

‘We are the solutions’ The report’s findings also echoed Antle’s observation that the majority of green jobs aren’t going to be the new ones created, for example, from manufacturing wind turbines or solar panels. Among the occupations with the most green jobs were carpenters, heating, airconditioning and refrigera-

Since high school, Troy Karlin, owner of All-N-1 Landscape, has been mowing lawns. When he graduated from KU in 2001, he turned his mowing services into a full-time business. Over the years, Karlin’s philosophy on how to care for lawns changed as his concerns about the environment grew. He stopped using petrochemicals and began suggesting his clients incorporate items such as permeable pavements, rain barrels and edible foods into their outdoor space. He eventually introduced a sustainable division to his company. In 2004, the company did its first green project, which was about one-eighth of 1 percent of the company’s total revenues. Today, the sustainable division accounts for 16 to 20 percent of the revenues, and Karlin hopes to see it grow to about 32 percent next year. Since 2007, Karlin has upped his workforce by one employee annually to help with the work. “As our sustainable division grows and our sustainable landscaping revenues grow, our green jobs grow,” Karlin said.

Rural home destroyed by blaze


U.S. envoy pelted with eggs Angry supporters of President Bashar Assad’s regime hurled tomatoes and eggs at the U.S. ambassador to Syria on Thursday as he entered the office of a leading opposition figure and then tried to break into the building, trapping him inside for three hours. The Obama administration blamed the Syrian government for the attack in Damascus, saying it was part of an ongoing, orchestrated campaign to intimidate American diplomats in the country. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton condemned the attack as “wholly unjustified.” Ambassador Robert Ford, an outspoken critic of Assad’s crackdown on the 6-month-old revolt against the regime, has angered Syrian authorities before by showing support for the uprising. The latest incident promises to raise tensions even further. Ford came under attack by about 100 Assad supporters as he arrived for the meeting with Hassan Abdul-Azim, who heads the outlawed Arab Socialist Democratic Union party. Abdul-Azim is a strong critic of Assad’s regime and was briefly detained by authorities earlier this year. Such incidents are usually not spontaneous in Syria, and Thursday’s attack came amid high tension between the two nations, as well as accusations by Damascus that Washington is inciting violence in the country. 2 | LOS ANGELES

Guard: Jackson doc collected vials One of Michael Jackson’s bodyguards had barely stepped into the singer’s bedroom when he heard a scream. “Daddy!” Jackson’s young daughter cried. A few feet away, the singer lay motionless in his bed, eyes slightly open. His personal doctor, Conrad Murray, was trying to revive him when he saw that Jackson’s eldest children were watching. “Don’t let them see their dad like this,” Murray said, the first of many orders that bodyguard Alberto Alvarez testified Thursday that he heeded in the moments before paramedics arrived at Jackson’s home in June 2009. What happened next — after Alvarez said he ushered Jackson’s eldest son and daughter from the room — is one of the key pieces of prosecutors’ involuntary manslaughter case against Murray. According to Alvarez, Murray scooped up vials of medicine from Jackson’s nightstand and told the bodyguard to put them away. “He said, ‘Here, put these in a bag,’” Alvarez said. Alvarez complied. He placed an IV bag into another bag, and then Murray told him to call 911, Alvarez said. On the third day of the trial, prosecutors tried to show that Murray, who has pleaded not guilty, delayed calling authorities and that he was intent on concealing signs that he had been giving the singer doses of the anesthetic propofol. 3 | WASHINGTON, D.C.

Twitter used for mood study Twitter confirms it: People tend to wake up in a good mood and are happiest on weekends. The fast-paced forum is offering scientists a peek at real-time, presumably little-filtered human behavior and thoughts. Cornell University researchers turned to the microblog to study mood and found a pretty consistent pattern. The researchers analyzed English-language tweets from 2.4 million people in 84 countries, more than 500 million of the brief, conversation-like exchanges sent over two years. They used a computer program that searched for words indicating positive mood — happy, enthusiastic, brilliant — or negative mood — sad, anxious, fear. What they found: Unless you’re a night owl, a positive attitude peaks early in the morning and again near midnight, but starts to dip midmorning before rising again in the evening. Aha, you might think, going to work and related hassles like traffic explain that pattern. After all, there was more positive tweeting on the weekend, even though the morning peak of happy tweets occurred two hours later, probably because people slept late. Not quite. Work-related stress may play some role but it can’t explain why that same midday dip occurs on the weekend, too, said lead researcher Scott Golder, a Cornell graduate student. Instead, the pattern probably is due to the effects of sleep and our 24-hour biological clock, the so-called circadian rhythms that signal when it’s time to sleep and to wake, Golder and Cornell sociologist Michael Macy reported. Their study appears in today’s edition of the journal Science.

A FIREFIGHTER WATCHES THE FLAMES OF A FULLY-INVOLVED HOUSE FIRE about 4 a.m. Thursday at 1439 N. 1900 Road. A brick chimney and a few burned walls were the only things left standing.

No injuries in early-morning fire By George Diepenbrock

ONLINE: See the videos at

A rural Lawrence man escaped an early-morning fire Thursday that destroyed a house north of Lawrence. “I’m OK. My dogs are OK. My boyfriend is OK. The important part is the lives,” said Peggy Mersmann-Laptad, who came home and found fire had destroyed her house. “Yeah, I’ll probably cry about the stuff (later).” Mersmann-Laptad’s boyfriend, Julian Dahl, escaped the home and was not injured. Lawrence-Douglas County Fire Medical and other township fire departments responded about 3:45 a.m. to the fire at 1439 N. 1900 Road, just west of U.S. Highway 24-59. Division Chief Eve Tolefree said the man escaped without injury, and crews began a defensive attack from the outside because of the advanced stage of the flames. A brick chimney

and a few burned walls were the only things standing Thursday morning. Tom Tweddell, of Lawrence, stood outside the charred remains of his stepdaughter’s home at 9 a.m. Mersmann-Laptad was at work when the fire started. Mersmann-Laptad said Dahl was alerted after the couple’s four Malamute dogs began barking on the porch. The dogs were not harmed, she said. “If (the dogs) had been inside the house, they’d all be gone,” she said. For more than six years, Mersmann-Laptad has lived at the house, which was built in the 1950s. Her grandparents had lived there, and her greatgrandfather had also owned the land in Grant Township. The family said the current house was built after an older house burned. Tweddell said a nearby barn built in the 1800s was not damaged in Thursday’s fire. As she viewed the damage Thursday morning, MersmannLaptad said she had been close

to purchasing insurance on the home. “Just now things were falling into place where I might have been able to afford it,” she said. “But it was two paychecks away, and, well, what do you do?” According to Douglas County records, the residential property was appraised at $111,160. Fire and Douglas County Sheriff’s investigators were still trying to determine the cause of the fire Thursday. Sgt. Steve Lewis, a sheriff’s spokesman, said the fire caused an estimated $130,000 in damage to the house and its contents. Other firefighters who responded included volunteers from Kanwaka, Lecompton, Clinton, Eudora and Wakarusa townships. Jane Blocher, executive director of the Douglas County chapter of the American Red Cross, said the chapter would be providing hotel lodging and other assistance to the couple. — Reporter George Diepenbrock can be reached at 832-7144.

Say goodbye to the South Park Recreation Center. The center at 1141 Mass. closed at 5 p.m. Thursday. When it reopens late next spring, the building won’t function as a recreation center; rather, it will serve as the new administrative offices for the Parks and Recreation Department. City officials earlier this year decided to move the Parks and Recreation offices into the South Park center in an effort to save money. Currently, the city leases office space at 10th and New Hampshire streets — above PepperJax Grill restaurant — for Parks and Recreation. “It is expected to result in a significant savings,” said Megan Gilliland, communications manager for the city. Gilliland said the office renovation work is expected to cost about $80,000. But she said the city currently pays $173,000 a year to lease the office space at 10th and New Hampshire streets. The project represents the latest change for the building, which is on the west side of South Park. The building was built in 1963, and originally was designed to be a youth center, said Fred DeVictor, the former director of parks and recreation for the center. That’s why the center never has had a gymnasium, weight room or other amenities typical of a recreation center. The center has housed several classes and served as a meeting room facility. Gilliland said the city has found alternate spaces for all classes and events. The five employees at the South Park Center will be transferred to the Community Building, 115 W. 11th. — City reporter Chad Lawhorn can be reached at 832-6362. Follow him at

Mini ice cream floats, beaded bracelets and buckets were all used to explain the marvels of water to 700 fourth-graders Thursday morning. As part of the Douglas County Conservation District’s third annual Water Festival, fourthgraders from across Douglas County came to Clinton Lake to learn about all things water — including the water cycle, weather patterns, ways to con-

Police recruits sharpen defensive tactics By George Diepenbrock

ONLINE: See the video at

As the 13 Lawrence police recruits Thursday morning worked in pairs on mats, honing their defensive tactics, their trainers were teaching them how best to get out of a struggle and apprehend a suspect. “It doesn’t matter what shift you’re on, you’ve got to prepare to expect the worst,” Sgt. Kirk Fultz said. “We always hope for the best and prepare for the worst.” Fultz and officers Chris Wech and Jeff Holtzman helped lead the recruits through several scenarios at the Investigations and Training Center, 4820 Bob Billings Parkway. Wech spent time instructing the group on how they could get out of a struggle with a suspect who was on top of them. He taught them about how to grab the

BRIEFLY Man pleads guilty to robbing students A 21-year-old man pleaded guilty Thursday morning to robbing two male Kansas University students. Michael Martin Gerald entered the pleas to two counts of robbery. Gerald originally was charged with two counts of aggravated robbery and one count of conspiracy. Prosecutors accused Gerald and co-defendant Brandon James Huggins, 23, a Fort Leavenworth military police officer, of robbing the two men at gunpoint early June 23 as the students were walking on Memorial Drive. According to earlier testimony, Gerald, who is not in the military, is a childhood friend of Huggins. The two students testified at a July preliminary hearing that two men got out of a car, ordered them to the ground and robbed them. Police later stopped a vehicle and interviewed three men inside: Gerald, Huggins and a third man, also a Fort Leavenworth solider. KU Public Safety Officers did not arrest the third man because they did not believe he was involved in the robbery. Detective Jack Campbell testified that Gerald told police in an interview that he alone robbed the two students because “he was bored.” Sarah Swain, Huggins’ defense attorney, has said her client asserted to police he was not involved, and Swain has criticized officers for not looking into the possibility the third man matched the victims’ description of the second robber. District Judge Paula Martin is scheduled to sentence Gerald at 2:30 p.m. Oct. 18. Huggins has a hearing scheduled for Oct. 13.

avoid a heated exchange or a fight, but they need to know what to do in case it does happen, he said. Police often have to respond to domestic violence calls or even chaotic situations early in the morning after bars close. “We’re trying to keep these officers as safe as we can,” Fultz said. On Thursday, the recruits learned basic moves that could help them put a suspect in handcuffs, and they will practice more complex scenarios later on. “You can avoid danger Mike Yoder/Journal-World Photo sometimes, but sometimes LAWRENCE POLICE OFFICER CHRIS WECH demonstrates a you can’t.

In a station called The Long Haul, Jim Weaver, with the conservation district, told tales of what it was like for the pioneers to live on the Kansas prairie. He shared the story of his grandmother’s family, who took a bath just once a week, every Saturday night before church. All eight kids would use the same bath water, starting with the youngest who was also the cleanest. “Then they took what was left of the water and washed the porch with it,” Weaver said. “We don’t want to get back to that point where we take a bath after someone else, do we?” To get a sense of what it was like to carry all that water, students hauled gallon buckets of it. Weaver’s message left an impression with Deerfield

School fourth-grader David Stuart. “They had to go back and get the water, and a cow (drinks) 15 gallons a day,” David said about what he would remember most about the lesson. To explain how the water ended up in the buckets, a station was operated by the aptly named Kathleen Waters, who is with the Kansas Department of Health and Environment. Waters explained the water cycle by using dice that took students, who had transformed into water molecules, from clouds to glaciers to rivers to oceans and to animals. At each station, the student received a bead for a bracelet. Near Waters’ station was the real hit of the festival: A group of Free State FFA students was making what were called edible aquifers. The ice cream floats were a way to explain how aquifers filtered water. “The gummy bears are the bedrock and the sub soil is the K?<?<CGAAA

Sixteen organizations are competing to secure some of the $350,000 available for creation and development of projects intended to conserve natural and cultural heritage in Douglas County. In all, the organizations are proposing 18 projects, ones that together would cost $939,000. All are eligible for financing through the county’s new Heritage Conservation grant program. The proposed projects would provide conservation of historic structures, natural areas, agricultural sites and operations, and places connected with the county’s long history — from the pre-settlement era through the present day. Projects will be reviewed by the county’s Heritage Conservation Council, whose recommendations will be forwarded to Douglas County commissioners for review, consideration and approval.

ice cream, and at the top we put cookie crumbs to show the top soil,” explained Free State junior Markus Roberts. “Then we pour soda over the top of that to show the water.” And the fourth-graders’ favorite part was the spoon, which just like a well helps you drill down to the bottom. While the ice cream was a tasty treat, Fishburn hoped the students returned to school with a deeper appreciation for water. “The message is we need to protect our water because this is all we have. We can’t really make any more water. So we need to make sure we protect it and save it,” she said.

Joan Sereno has taught in the linguistics department since 1999. KANSAS UNIVERSITY She will hold the title of Budig Teaching Professor for one year and will receive a $5,000 research supplement. The Language and the Mind course seeks to apply linguistic theories to things students interact with in everyday life. For example, she points out that “Rock Chalk, Jayhawk” is a phrase that does not rhyme for many speakers, but does for most Kansans. The teaching professorship was established by a gift from former KU Chancellor Gene Budig and his wife, Gretchen. It is given annually to a faculty member who has demonstrated a commitment to excellence in teaching.

Judge bars doctors’ group from joining case “

That a group of anti-choice doctors seeks to Associated Press elevate its economic interests above women’s WICHITA — A federal judge health is as offensive as it is absurd, and the Court on Thursday refused to allow rightly rejected its attempt to derail the case.”

By Roxana Hegeman

a national anti-abortion doctors’ group to join a lawsuit challenging Kansas’ abortion clinic regulations, ruling that its intervention would unnecessarily delay the case. U.S. District Judge Carlos Murguia shot down every argument raised by American Association of Pro-Life Obstetricians and Gynecologists in its effort to appeal his decision blocking enforcement of the new rules. The AAPLOG said in its filing that it appealed the temporary injunction, even though it wasn’t a party to the case, because the state of Kansas hadn’t done so. At issue is a new Kansas law that requires abortion providers to obtain a special annual license. It also imposes strict new health department regulations that specify what drugs and equipment abortion clinics must stock and sets requirements for room sizes and temperatures,



major anti-abortion initiatives approved by Kansas legislators and signed into law this year by Republican Gov. Sam Brownback, who called on lawmakers to create “a culture of life” after he took office in January. Supporters of the insurance restrictions contended that people who oppose abortion shouldn’t be forced to pay for such coverage in a general health plan. “The law appears to rationally further a state interest in allowing the State’s citizens to avoid paying insurance premiums for services to which they have a moral objection,” Brown wrote in his 19-page order. “Whether the practical effect of the law is to actually

among other things. Two of the state’s three abortion providers sued after they were unable to meet the new standards, and Murguia on July 1 blocked the rules until the lawsuit is resolved. AAPLOG claimed it had legal standing in the case because its members in Kansas are losing childbirth-related business to abortion clinics. It also contended that its members are placed at a competitive disadvantage because abortion providers pass along the costs of any complications or medical care after abortions to other doctors. Murguia disagreed. The judge wrote in his decision that the doctors compete with other doctors who perform childbirth services —

they do not compete with abortion providers. To make such as argument, he reasoned, the AAPLOG would have to assume its members’ medical practices may financially benefit from the Kansas laws because fewer women would be able to have abortions and would seek care from one of the organization’s doctors. The judge said that interest is too remote and speculative, adding that AAPLOG’s chain of reasoning is “tenuous and does not establish a credible competitive economic interest.” Murguia was equally dismissive of the group’s argument that absent the more restrictive Kansas abortion clinic licensing law, its members would be at an economic

disadvantage because abortion providers shift the costs of complications and followup care to others. AAPLOG failed to provide any concrete examples of such cost-shifting or any specific statistics to support the claim, the judge said. “This evidence is vague and deficient in several respects,” he wrote. Bonnie Scott Jones, deputy director for the Center for Reproductive Rights and an attorney for the abortion providers who sued the state said they are pleased the court denied the intervention so they can again focus on the real issue of this case — protecting women’s access to reproductive health care. “That a group of antichoice doctors seeks to elevate its economic interests above women’s health is as offensive as it is absurd, and the Court rightly rejected its attempt to derail the case,” she said in an email. The Kansas attorney general’s office declined to comment on the ruling.

create a substantial obstacle is another question, but plaintiff has not attempted in this motion to put on evidence to establish such an effect, and the court expresses no opinion here on that question.” The Kansas attorney general’s office said it was pleased with Brown’s decision. The ACLU noted it was only a preliminary ruling and vowed to keep fighting. “The state has no business depriving a woman of insurance for vital services that are already covered by most health plans,” said Doug Bonney, legal director for the ACLU of Kansas and Western Missouri. “If a woman and her doctor reach the decision that ending a pregnancy is the right choice for her and her family, she should have the peace of mind of knowing that her insurance will cover all of her medical needs.”

The ruling was a setback for abortion rights advocates, who have successfully blocked enforcement of other new Kansas laws dealing with abortion. Federal judges have temporarily blocked two laws — one dealing with strict abortion clinic regulations and another that strips federal family planning dollars from a Planned Parenthood chapter — pending trial on their constitutionality. Brown said the insurance law appears to draw heavily from federal law. He noted that the federal health care overhaul also authorized states to prohibit abortion coverage in policies sold on state-level exchanges, where individuals and small businesses would be able to choose from different health care plans and compare coverage options. The new Kansas law has such a provision.

As for the ACLU’s claim that the law violates its members’ rights to equal protection, since men could buy general policies for their reproductive needs, the judge sided with the state. Brown, who at age 104 is the nation’s oldest sitting federal judge, agreed that such a contention must be reviewed but said the ACLU didn’t provide enough evidence to convince him. In a separate case challenging another abortion law, a federal judge refused on Thursday to allow a national anti-abortion doctors’ group to join a lawsuit over Kansas’ new abortion clinic regulations. The judge said intervention by the by American Association of Pro-Life Obstetricians and Gynecologists would unnecessarily delay the case, and shot down all of the group’s arguments.

Kobach’s campaign reporting scrutinized TOPEKA (AP) — Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach is facing questions for a second time in less than three years about flawed finance reports filed by political organizations he led, and the latest issues could result in a $5,000 fine for the treasurer of his campaign last year. Kobach said Thursday that an internal review uncovered dozens of mistakes in finance reports filed by his campaign. It omitted about $35,000 worth of contributions and nearly $43,000 in spending from reports filed for the 2010 campaign, according to a notice signed Thursday

by Carol Williams, the state Governmental Ethics Commission’s executive director. His campaign filed corrected finance reports Tuesday. The commission met Wednesday and scheduled an Oct. 26 hearing on whether Kobach’s campaign treasurer should be fined. In June, after a two-year review, the Federal Election Commission released an audit concluding that the Kansas Republican Party had committed three violations of federal campaign finance laws in 2007 and 2008, when Kobach was chairman. The audit cited flawed record-

keeping and reporting, but Kobach described the problems as technical. Kobach told The Associated Press that in the latest case, his treasurer, state Rep. Tom Arpke, a fellow Republican from Salina, is not responsible for the mistakes in the finance reports and actually helped to find them. Arpke did not return a telephone message seeking comment. “We did this all on our own. We just did an internal review and found a lot of mistakes,” Kobach said. “We just wanted to have our books balanced down to the penny.”

Kids marathon club kicks off Sunday The Lawrence community’s One Mile At a Time marathon club for elementary school students is having a kick-off party Sunday. Students who sign up for the club will receive a T-shirt and a packet of information that includes tips on running and nutrition and sheets to log their miles. The goal is to complete a marathon, 26.2 miles, between Sunday and April 22, which is the Kansas Half Marathon event in Lawrence. Kylene Etzel, Lawrence Hy-Vee dietitian, said the goal of the free program is to provide an incentive for students to keep moving, even during winter months. She said students receive a special stamp and coupons for every five miles they run. The kick-off party is from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. in the parking lot of the Clinton Parkway Hy-Vee, 3504 Clinton Parkway. There will be special announcements and then a warm-up at 3:30 p.m. with Lawrence fitness guru Don “Red Dog” Gardner. A onemile run will begin at 3:45 p.m., followed by food and entertainment from 4 p.m. to 5 p.m. Etzel said students who can’t make the party can sign up anytime in the pharmacy department at Lawrence HyVee stores, 4000 W. Sixth St. or 3504 Clinton Parkway.

Online jungle Today’s young people are learning some hard lessons about the dark side of online communications.


here’s nothing new about adolescents and young adults being mean to one another, but the modern prevalence of online communications significantly ups the ante when it comes to causing hurt and embarrassment. A newly released Associated Press-MTV poll paints a disturbing picture of life in the electronic village for people between the ages of 14 and 24. Most of those responding — 56 percent — reported they had been the target of some kind of online taunting, harassment or bullying. A third said they had been involved in “sexting” or sharing photos or video of sexual activity and/or naked photos of themselves or an acquaintance. Of those who have been in a relationship, about 40 percent said their partners have used computers or cellphones to abuse or control them. An AP story about the poll shared some specific examples of bullying behavior. One woman, now 22, said that, when she was 12, before she even ventured onto the Internet herself, someone used her name to set up an account to spread lies about her. When she was 18, she let a boyfriend pressure her into sending him a revealing photo of herself. After they broke up, he threatened to use the photo to embarrass her. It is easy to do. With the push of a button, the photo or any mean comment or lie someone wanted to spread can be sent to an unlimited number of people or posted on a website that displays it to the online public. Again, there’s nothing new about bullying, but what once was an insult shouted across the lunchroom to a relatively limited audience now can be broadcast literally around the world any time of the day or night. Unlike in the lunchroom, the anonymity of the Internet also shields people from the responsibility for the hurtful things they do or say. Whom can young people trust? Sixteen percent of those surveyed said someone — perhaps a friend or a friend of a friend — had posted embarrassing pictures or video of them without their permission. Of course, the best way to avoid such a situation is not to allow embarrassing photos to be taken; a lapse in judgment can have serious consequences. Three-fourths of those who responded to the survey said they consider the darker aspects of online communication a serious problem. The seriousness often is magnified by the natural turmoil of the growing-up years. Particularly relentless cases of “digital abuse” even have been cited as contributing factors to teen suicides. If it was tough to get through your teens and early 20s with your self-esteem and reputation intact a generation or two ago, the age of instant communication has made it much harder today. The people in the age group responding to this AP-MTV survey are no doubt learning a lot about how to shield themselves from online rumors, lies and embarrassment. Perhaps the lessons they learn can be put to good use by the generations that go after them.



Joint chiefs chair reflects on tenure WASHINGTON — Talking to Adm. Mike Mullen, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, in his final week in the job, I found myself wondering if we are entering a “post-military” age, when our top officers understand that the biggest problems can’t be solved with military power. Time and again, versions of this theme surfaced in my conversation with Mullen. He has been, by widespread assessment, a very effective chairman who restored the position to prominence in national security decision-making. But the problems he’s leaving unresolved lie at the periphery of the military space, where conventional weapons can’t reach. The columnist Joe Klein once likened Mullen to a “country doctor,” and that’s what he has been for the military — a big guy with a doughy face and syntax that doesn’t always parse, but who looked like the commander, and who didn’t bend, more than was appropriate in our system, to politicians. Military officers are by nature problem-solvers who like to fix things, or shoot them, or get around them some other way. So what brings a smile to Mullen’s face, right off, is the feat of sheer military prowess in the May 2 raid that killed Osama bin Laden. Mullen remembers the mess that was Desert One in 1980 — helicopters that didn’t work, aircraft that crashed, shortage

Mullen knows that his greatest legacy will be a cultural and legal issue — ending discrimination against gays in the military by dismantling the ‘don’t ask, don’t tell’ policy.”

of parts, bad training. Watching that fiasco, he recalls, “I sensed that we were in trouble as a military.” In the Abbottabad raid, it was obvious this problem of competence is largely fixed. Every night, U.S. Special Operations Forces conduct missions almost as complicated as the bin Laden assault. Mullen describes today’s military machine as fearsomely efficient: “a combat-hardened, combat-experienced, extraordinarily professional, competent, all-volunteer force.” But what are the deeper, intractable problems facing Mullen’s generation of officers? They are about culture, and governance, and the subtle psychological fac-

tors that keep people from doing what’s in their interest. The biggest frustration of Mullen’s four years as chairman was surely Pakistan. He decided early on to forge a personal relationship with Gen. Ashfaq Kayani, the chief of army staff, in the hope that it might be a solid bridge between the two countries. Mullen says that looking back he didn’t realize the extent of the “trust deficit.” Increasingly, it became clear to Mullen that Pakistan’s problems were embedded in the economic, political and cultural fabric of the country. They’re on “a declining glide slope,” Mullen explains, and this isn’t something America can fix. Yet hope springs eternal in the military heart. I ask Mullen if Pakistan “blew it,” but the admiral insists the story isn’t over: Kayani still wants to cooperate; Gen. James Mattis, the Centcom commander, just had a good visit there last weekend; and so on. And then there’s Afghanistan. Mullen insists that this isn’t just an expensive stalemate, that “the trends are good” and “it has moved in the right direction.” But he knows, too, that the definition of success is to transfer responsibility to an Afghan government enfeebled by problems of governance and corruption. In that sense, all the brilliance of the American military won’t be enough — not when the definition of victory is so interwoven with politics and culture.

What troubles Mullen is that this magnificent professional force has become a separate tribe in America, too little connected to the rest of the country: “They don’t know the depth and the breadth of what we have been through, the numbers of deployments, the stress on the force, the suicide issues, the extraordinary performance.” Mullen knows that his greatest legacy will be a cultural and legal issue — ending discrimination against gays in the military by dismantling the “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy. He did it for reasons of conscience and never looked back. It was a moment of leadership, pure and simple. As Mullen prepared to leave his post, the federal government is shuddering with the politics of paralysis. So I ask him, as a last question, about the political divisions he has tried to bridge as a nonpartisan chairman. He muses that it’s odd to be lecturing Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki about governance when “there’s a lot of things we don’t get right” at home. What America needs, he says finally, is the same requirement that makes the military work, which is “accountability for outcomes.” A political system that works — whether it’s in Islamabad or Kabul or Washington — is one that takes responsibility for solving the problems that do not yield to force of arms. — David Ignatius is a columnist Washington Post Writers Group.

Smart on crime



To the editor: Last Tuesday, the JournalWorld ran a story about Kansas Department of Corrections Secretary Ray Roberts’ testimony to a legislative committee. As the headline summarized, “Kansas prison system overcrowded and understaffed.” The story reported cuts made to DOC staff, programs to reduce recidivism and educational opportunities (like GEDs) for inmates. “Meanwhile the Legislature continues to approve bills that increase prison sentences, which leads to a ‘stacking effect’ in the system.” The DOC is considering various options, “including releasing inmates early who are at a low risk of re-offending, and keeping them under house arrest and monitoring them by electronic means.” Sunday’s paper had a story about a Kansas man who cut an electronic monitoring device off his ankle while on parole. He pled to tampering with an electronic monitoring device and was sentenced to 3 1/2 years in prison. What the story does not explain is the severity level (and consequently the length of sentence) for tampering is greater than the sentence for the low-level drug crime for which he was on parole. (My professional knowledge and a quick Internet search reveal this.) Furthermore, the law requires his new tampering sentence and the time remaining on his drug sentence to run consecutively. The average cost of DOC incarceration is $25,000 per year.

When our legislators face the prison overcapacity issue next session, they need to take a careful look at sentences and be smart on crime. In trying to remedy one crisis, legislators need to ensure they do not create others. Jennifer Roth, Lawrence

Analysis lacking To the editor: A tragedy becomes even more lamentable when we miss the opportunity to learn from our experience. We tend to remain stuck in a haze of confusion, anger, and other emotions. Thus, we fail to examine circumstances and ourselves objectively and intellectually. This is what bothered me about recent TV coverage of the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001. Sadly, after 10 years, Americans have learned very little from our worst tragedy. Journalists’ investigative analysis concerning the root causes of the attacks is appallingly absent or extremely shallow. Nor is there any serious probing into our government’s reaction to 9/11. Fortunately, a few researchers have unearthed something significant. For example, Noam Chomsky’s “9-11: Was There an Alternative” defies Bush’s assertion that they attacked us because they hate our freedoms. More accurately, it’s our policies they hate, according to studies by the National Security Council and the Pentagon. “ ... there’s a perception in the Arab world that the United States supports

Park director Jerry Schecher, administrative specialist Sherri Withers and ranger Dave Rhoads at the Corps of Engineers have always gone out of their ways to help our group, and everyone else have the greatest experience in these beautiful parks. Everyone who’s hiked or biked the Clinton Lake trails owes a debt to Mike Goodwin, Kansas Trails Council, who almost single-handedly keeps the nearly 23 miles of trails cleared of overgrowth and fallen timber.

Storm damage sets insurance record TOPEKA — Spring and summer storms in Kansas have led to more than $1 billion in insurance claims this year. The Kansas Department of Insurance reported Wednesday that the 197,000 claims have been filed for property and crop damage. The numbers do not include losses from flooding. That easily beats the state record of $700 million paid in 1992 for 365,500 claims. The Wichita Eagle reported that about $18 million of the claims were for crop damage, with the rest of property damage. More than half of the damage was from wind and hail storms in east and south-central parts of the state last April. Insurance Commissioner Sandy Praeger predicted insurance premiums are likely to rise in response to the high number of claims.

McClinton not limited to football

We got around to talking football eventually, but it’s just that when you only have an hour to spend on the phone with a man who has seen so much, learned so passionately and lived so fully as has Curtis McClinton Jr., sports don’t dominate. Sure, McClinton was an AllAmerican running back at Kansas University in 1961 and had a terrific career for the Kansas City Chiefs. But what makes him special is the insatiable curiosity of his mind and the way he is able to capture in words the brilliance of others. McClinton received a bachelor’s in education from Kansas, a master’s in business from Central Michigan and a doctorate in philosophy from Miles College in Birmingham, Ala. He gave the valedictorian speech after completing graduate studies at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government. His most important lessons, of course, were learned at home. Yet, as much as he always has admired his father, a Wichita real estate broker who his son proudly shares is going strong mentally and physically at 98, he didn’t want to follow him into politics. “First black senator elected in the state of Kansas,” Curtis Jr. said from his home in Kansas City, Mo, of his father. “I never really fell in love with politics.” McClinton Jr. was in the federal Senior Executive Service under President Jimmy Carter and President George H.W. Bush and he was deputy mayor in Washington, D.C., but not everybody who serves in or on the periphery of politics is a politician. McClinton greatly admires one such man. “In all my travels, probably the most mesmerizing personality that I ever met was Colin Powell,” he said. Why? “It was the way General Powell communicated with words and without words, and it was the way he brought a mission to closure and moved on,” McClinton said. “And to the people around him — including presidents, statesmen and world leaders — he was a true leader. He was a person who you knew when you were in his presence, you were going to leave a more knowledgeable and comfortable person. ... The aura about him was subtle, but his focus on acts and deeds was swift. He was always moving.” He never moved into the oval office, but if he had, he would have made a “superb” president, in McClinton’s estimation. “I certainly encouraged him when I had the opportunity to chat with him,” McClinton said. “The one issue that brings about a caution on my behalf, he seemed to be a man of very good judgment, and he chose not to, so I trust him.” During his days at KU, McClinton’s hero became not a football player, rather fellow bass baritone Paul Robenson, who also used his voice to plead for equality for all Americans. McClinton learned of him from a KU professor and flew to New York to see him in concert at Carnegie Hall during a bye week. Judy Kish of Lawrence, the daughter of former KU assistant football coach George Bernhardt, remembers fondly McClinton student-teaching at Central Junior High and riveting students with a “beautiful” version of “Old Man River.” McClinton looks forward to joining ’61 teammates in Lawrence this weekend for a reunion honoring them.

FREE STATE’S GUIN TOALSON RETURNS A SHOT during the Firebirds’ dual with Lawrence High. FSHS won, 6-3, Thursday at Free State.

FSHS beats LHS in friendly dual By Corey Thibodeaux

When their matches finished, a few Free State and Lawrence High tennis players paired up and exchanged pleasantries with each other. Some suggested they should hang out outside of tennis. Host FSHS won Thursday’s dual against cross-town rival LHS, 6-3, but you couldn’t tell who had won and who had lost. The so-called “rivalry” didn’t seem to exist. “A lot of it is manufactured by adults, and it’s not something that is passionately felt by the kids,” FSHS coach Oather Strawderman said. During the matches, the camaraderie existed, but without words. The girls weren’t allowed to speak to each other in the competitive atmosphere, which was difficult for some of the players. The LHS doubles team of Tay-

The girls wanted it to be less formal. “We really like the other girls,” Eubanks said, “so it’s really sad when we have to go against them.” Gillam agreed and said she wants the best for her opponent just as well as her own team. “In some scenarios, I’ll be in my head cheering for both,” she said. After the Firebirds finished fourth in the Sunflower League tournament Tuesday, there was a bit of a hangover lingering into Thursday’s doubles matches, where the Lions, who finished seventh at league, won two out of three. The singles matches all went in favor of the Firebirds, except for LAWRENCE HIGH’S ABBY GILLAM com- Brooke Braman of LHS beating petes in her winning doubles match Alita Joseph from FSHS by default against Free State. after Joseph injured her hand.

FREE STATE’S ALEXIS CZAPINSKI hits a forehand against LHS.

Through four weeks and three games of the 2011 season, Kansas University’s football team has faced some pretty good opponents. But starting Saturday, when the Jayhawks (2-1) play host to Texas Tech (3-0) at 11 a.m., the level of talent on the opposite sideline is about to go up. “I think it’s totally different,” senior linebacker Steven Johnson said of entering into Big 12 play. “I’m pretty sure we’re gonna kick it up this week in practice. It’s Big 12 week.” For some, such as Johnson, another game in the ultrac o m p e t i t i v e TEXAS Big 12 ConferTECH VS. ence is just that — anoth- KANSAS er game.

Webb, who played in four more league games after that one, said he learned one valuable lesson about conference games a season ago. “The margin of error has to go down,” he said. “You’re playing teams that are better now. They have talent at every position. They have physical guys on the line. And you just have to really come with your A game every week, every down.” So far this week, Webb said he had not seen any unmanageable nerves from KU’s underclassmen and transfers who have yet to take the field against a Big 12 foe. Asked specifically about freshmen tailbacks Darrian Miller and Tony Pierson, Webb expressed confidence in their ability to make the transition. “Those two guys, they seem Please see FOOTBALL, page 3B

Free State wary of ‘big’ Indians By Nick Nelson

Asked about tonight’s opponent, Shawnee Mission North, Free State head football coach Bob Lisher had one word that best described the Indians. “Big,” Lisher said. “It’s the usual Shawnee Mission North team. They’re very big.” Kickoff is 7 tonight at Free State’s stadium. The Indians bring to town linemen on both sides who, on average, weigh in around 260 pounds. “We can’t match them sizewise, so we have to play hard.

We have to be more physical and overcome some of that by just being quicker. It’s one of those games where you have to be solid in everything you do, or one of those guys can get loose and make a big run,” Lisher said. “We tell our guys up front if they’re getting double-teamed, that’s good. If they’re not getting double-teamed, they need to make the tackle” The team has cut down on the mistakes that plagued it at the beginning of the year and is taking fewer reps in practice after Please see FIREBIRDS, page 4B


LHS seeks to fill void at running back By Corey Thibodeaux

SM North at Free State 7 tonight at FSHS

SM EAST at Lawrence 7 tonight at LHS

When Lawrence High plays host to Shawnee Mission East at 7 tonight, it will be without one of its main cogs on offense, senior running back Charles Jackson. Jackson is out for the year after suffering a broken fibula and dislocated ankle in the fourth quarter of last week’s game against Leavenworth. He had his operation Tuesday and received a plate with several screws in his leg. The Lions won’t have him

on the field for the remainder of this season, though his high school athletic career may not be over. “Hopefully he’ll be playing basketball by mid-December,” football coach Dirk Wedd said. The Lions aren’t even halfway through with their schedule, so they have time to find answers to replace Jackson. Wedd said the Lions will be counting on a running back by committee, which is a change of pace from the one-man show Jackson put on. Please see LIONS, page 4B

Time running out in NBA labor talks By Brian Mahoney Associated Press Basketball Writer

NEW YORK â&#x20AC;&#x201D; They donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have a deal yet, and they are just about out of time. After some two years of onand-off negotiations, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about all NBA players and owners agree on. The gaps in their financial proposals have been so great that they sometimes decide itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best to just talk about something else. Now they have to figure it out quickly. Without at least getting very close to the framework of a new collective bargaining agreement this weekend, hopes of the 2011-12 season starting on time would be all but lost. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We realize that the calendar,

the clock, the watch, whatever you want to say, is running out in terms of starting our regular season on time. So weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to try to get some things done this weekend and see what we can do,â&#x20AC;? said the Lakersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Derek Fisher, president of the playersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; association. The ownersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; labor relations committee and the unionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s executive committee â&#x20AC;&#x201D; perhaps joined by some All-Stars â&#x20AC;&#x201D; will meet today and have committed to keep talking throughout the weekend. Both sides have cautioned that bringing back the large groups after as series of discussions among smaller parties doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mean they are close, but rather that more voices are required to consider the crucial decisions.

Congress pushes NFL for HGH test By Antonio Gonzalez Associated Press Sports Writer

Congress is stepping up its efforts to push the NFL and its players toward an agreement on testing for human growth hormone. In letters obtained by The Associated Press on Thursday, leaders of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee invited NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, NFLPA executive director DeMaurice Smith and the chief executive of the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency to a meeting on Capitol Hill. The letters were signed by Chairman Darrell Issa, a California Republican, and Rep. Elijah E. Cummings, Maryland Democrat and ranking member of the committee. Blood testing for HGH was part of the collective bargaining deal struck between the league and players this summer â&#x20AC;&#x201D; but only if the union agreed to the methods. The playersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; union has asked for more information about the process used by the World Anti-Doping Agency and questioned the safety and reliability of the test. The NFL would be the first major professional sports league to implement HGH testing. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We believe the league and its players remain best positioned to implement an HGH testing regime, but concerns have been raised about the status of these efforts,â&#x20AC;? Issa and Cummings said in the letters. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The purpose of this meeting is to understand the concerns of the players and the league and to strongly convey our universal interest in protecting the health of millions of younger athletes across the country.â&#x20AC;? With talks over HGH testing at a stalemate, it seemed it was only a matter of time before Congress took action. However, the invitation is voluntary and not a subpoena. No date has been set for the meeting on performance-enhancing drugs. Goodell sent a letter to Smith before the start of the regular season reiterating the leagueâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s eagerness to begin HGH testing. At that time, the NFL also notified teams that no HGH testing will be conducted because the playersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; association could not agree to the terms. The league has long disputed the unionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s claims that the test is not valid. WADA handles drug testing for the Olympics and is largely accepted as the gold standard for worldwide drug testing. Smith has said heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s concerned that it does not take into account the different types of bodies and conditioning routines of football players. HGH is naturally occurring in the body. The isoform test used by WADA since 2004 â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and which became more widespread in 2008 â&#x20AC;&#x201D; is designed to detect synthetic HGH by measuring the ratio naturally occurring in the body against a population test.

There are 11 owners and nine players on the committees, including All-Star Chris Paul, who may try to bring along friends such as Carmelo Anthony and LeBron James that are scheduled to join him Saturday in a charity game in his hometown of Winston-Salem, N.C. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s doubtful the presence of the superstars makes much impact â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Anthony acknowledged this week that â&#x20AC;&#x153;we really donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know how powerful we are at this momentâ&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201D; but opening up the room beyond the top negotiators has backfired before. Talks broke down last time the large groups were together on Sept. 13, but Commissioner David Stern said he and union executive director Billy Hunter believe

itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s necessary to summon them again with the Nov. 1 opener at stake. Hunter has said players have instructed union leadership that they would rather sit out than accept a bad deal. But Stern has warned that offers will only get worse once games are missed, which he seemed to be alluding to Wednesday when he said without progress in the upcoming talks â&#x20AC;&#x153;then it wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be a question of just starting the season on time, it will be a lot at risk because of the absence of progress.â&#x20AC;? The NBA later denied an report that he planned to threaten players with cancellation of the entire season without progress by the end of the weekend.

Colts down to third-string quarterback Sunday


Spartans forward quits hoops EAST LANSING, MICH. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Delvon Roe, the rugged forward who helped Michigan State make it to a pair of Final Fours, has decided to quit the basketball team because of knee pain. The school said Thursday that Roe, a senior from Euclid, Ohio, will remain on scholarship and is on track to graduate in May. The 6-foot-8 Roe says the pain in his knee has taken away his love of the game and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not fair to his team to try to play. Over three years, Roe averaged only 6.1 points and 5.1 rebounds, but was a stalwart in Big Ten and NCAA Tournament games. He averaged 23 minutes per game in the 2010 NCAA Tournament and is second in school history with 106 blocks.


Onyewu rejoins U.S. team MIAMI â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Defender Oguchi Onyewu will rejoin the U.S. menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s national soccer team for upcoming matches against Honduras and Ecuador. Onyewu is one of only three players on the 22-man list released Thursday who has not been in camp with the Americans since coach Jurgen Klinsmann took over last month. The others are goalkeeper Nick Rimando and German-born Danny Williams, who will be eligible to play for the United States after his citizenship is certified. Top Americans Landon Donovan, Jozy Altidore, Tim Howard, Clint Dempsey, Carlos Bocanegra and Michael Bradley are among those selected. The U.S. plays Honduras in Miami on Oct. 8, then travels to Harrison, N.J., to face Ecuador on Oct. 11. The team will begin training next week in South Florida. Klinsmann said FIFA has approved Fabian Johnsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s application to switch from Germanyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s national team program to the U.S. Johnson, a midfielder and defender for Hoffenheim, currently is sidelined by a neck injury, He started for Germany in the final of the Under-21 European Championship two years ago.


Wallace charged in traffic stop BLOOMFIELD TOWNSHIP, MICH. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Authorities in suburban Detroit say Detroit Pistons center Ben Wallace has been charged with drunken driving and unlawfully carrying a concealed weapon after a traffic stop. Bloomfield Township police said Thursday that the 37-year-old Wallace was arrested about 3 a.m. Saturday after officers observed a Cadillac Escalade being driven erratically. Police said they found an unloaded pistol in a backpack. Wallace, who helped the Pistons win the 2004 NBA title, was given a blood-alcohol test and officers say he was above Michiganâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s legal limit of 0.08 percent.


Oosthuizen leading at Dunhill KINGSBARNS, SCOTLAND â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Former British Open champion Louis Oosthuizen put himself in contention for another memorable victory at St. Andrews, taking a share of the lead Thursday after the first round of the Dunhill Links Championship. The South African shot a 6-under 66 in excellent conditions at Kingsbarns. He is joined Rafael Cabrera-Bello, Markus Brier and Michael Hoey at the top of the leaderboard. The tournament ends Sunday at St. Andrews, the scene of Oosthuizenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sensational seven-shot win in the 2010 British Open. Top-ranked Luke Donald had a 69 at Kingsbarns, one of the three courses hosting the $5 million event.

Johnson: no grudge with Tiger KINGSBARNS, SCOTLAND â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Dustin Johnson doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t begrudge Tiger Woods for hiring his caddie, saying such decisions are part of the business of golf. Joe LaCava left Johnson on Sunday to become Woodsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; third full-time caddie. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I spoke to Tiger about it. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no hard feelings at all,â&#x20AC;? Johnson said Thursday after shooting a 1-under 71 in the first round of the Dunhill Links Championship. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We had a great conversation. He just did what he did.â&#x20AC;? LaCava was the longtime caddie for Fred Couples but joined Johnson this summer. Johnson, one of the most talented American players, was looking for a caddie. Johnson won The Barclays last month with LaCava on the bag.


Unser Jr. arrested for DWI ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Two-time Indianapolis 500 winner Al Unser Jr. was arrested early Thursday morning on charges of drunken driving and reckless driving in New Mexico after authorities said he was driving more than 100 mph, officials at the Bernalillo County Sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Department said. A sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s spokeswoman said Unser was drag racing another car in his Suburban and was going around 101 mph before sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s deputies caught up to him.

Jayhawks’ Class of 2012 ranked 19th By Gary Bedore

Kansas University’s basketball recruiting Class of 2012 is currently ranked No. 19 in the country by Rivals. com, the website reported this week. The Jayhawks have received commitments from No. 24-rated Perry Ellis, a 6-foot-8, senior forward from Wichita Heights, and No. 144 Zach Peters, a 6-9 senior forward out of Prestonwood Christian Academy in Plano, Texas. KU is also pursuing No. 20-rated Kaleb Tarczewski, a 7-foot senior center from St. Mark High in Southborough, Mass., who, along with Ellis, will attend the Oct. 14 Late Night in the Phog. Tarczewski will visit Arizona the following weekend. The Jayhawks are after No.

56-ranked Andrew White, a 6-6 senior forward from Miller School in Chester, Va., who is also considering Louisville, Texas and West Virginia, as well as unranked Ioannis Papapetrou, a 6-6 senior guard/ forward from Florida Air Academy in Melbourne, Fla., the alma mater of former KU center Sasha Kaun. Papapetrou, who is originally from Greece, also is considering Texas and Florida. Indiana has the No. 1-rated recruiting class to date, followed by Providence, UCLA, Arizona, Pittsburgh, Houston, Baylor, Villanova, Texas, Michigan, North Carolina, Michigan State, Notre Dame, Florida State, Texas A&M, Florida, Virginia, St. John’s, KU, Xavier, Iowa, Maryland, Oklahoma State, Kentucky and Mississippi State.

a 6-9, 240-pound wide receiver, turned heads by catching 17 passes for 245 yards and three touchdowns in Prestonwood Christian’s 62-34 football victory over John Paul II last Friday in Plano, Texas. “The thing that’s great about Zach — his height has been a benefit — but it’s his power and strength and his runs after the catch that really makes him special,” Prestonwood coach Chris Cunningham told “He didn’t drop a ball on Friday and he’s running great routes. You have to wonder what he’d be like as a college receiver, whether he’s lined up at tight end or receiver.” Peters, who has 33 catches for 432 yards and six TDs for Prestonwood (3-1), is firmly committed to playing just ! one sport — basketball — at Eye-opening stats: Peters, KU. He attended Saturday’s

Legends of the Phog in Allen Fieldhouse. “As soon as they see him, they want to know more about him,” Cunningham said of college football recruiters. “They start wondering if they can work it out where Zach can play basketball and football. They look at him as a potential recruit now. “They all know he loves basketball, so no one is really trying to sway him, but if he continues to play this way, you would think someone would try to offer him in football. He’s not just a great athlete for a guy 6-9, he’s a great athlete, period,” Cunningham added to ESPN. !

Junior Walker to visit: Chris Walker, a 6-9, 205-pound junior forward from Holmes County High in Bonifay, Fla., tells he will attend Late Night on

an unofficial visit. Walker is the No. 8-rated player in the Class of 2013. Walker told he has a list of KU, Kentucky, Kansas State, Texas, Florida, Florida State, UConn, Memphis, Baylor and Oklahoma State. After originally saying he’d orally commit to a school on Nov. 15, Walker has changed his mind and has no decision date in mind.

Kansas receivers motivated by … Snickers? By Jesse Newell

Kansas assistant coach David Beaty has given his receivers two additional reasons to block hard this season: competition and chocolate. Beaty has kept track of his receivers’ knockdowns — the times when a player completely puts his opponent on the ground — on the dryerase board in the receivers’ meeting room. When a receiver gets a knockdown that leads to a scoring play, Beaty awards that player a king-sized candy bar at the position group’s meeting Sunday. “You take pride in that,” KU sophomore Christian Matthews said, “and try to get the most candy.”


to not get rattled by anything,” Webb said. “They could be playing in the Super Bowl, and it’d just be another game for them.” That’s the approach sophomore transfer Darius Willis is trying to take in his first season of eligibility with the Jayhawks. “Honestly, I’m excited,” said Willis, who came to KU from Buffalo prior to the 2010 season but sat out last year because of transfer rules. “Coming out, first Big 12 game, this is when it really, really counts. Every game counts. But this is when it really counts. So just going out there playing to the best of my ability and playing with my teammates, it’s going to be exciting.” Despite the nerves and extra dose of excitement that’s bound to be there Saturday for some of KU’s more inexperienced players, Johnson said he spent the week trying to remind his teammates of one thing. “It’s still college football,” he said. “It may be amped up a little bit just because it’s Big 12, but I’m pretty sure it’s nothing they haven’t experienced before, whether it was in juco or high school, whenever there was a big game. It’s just about going out there and being able to apply what you did in practice onto the field.” Added Willis: “Football is football. Games are gonna be games. But playing in a conference game and knowing that this is when everything starts rolling just gives you

The prizes include KitKats, Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups and Snickers. So far, KU junior D.J. Beshears is winning the knockdown battle, increasing his lead over second-place junior Kale Pick. “Every knockdown we get recorded, we’ll say something to one another, or he’ll get excited and yell,” Pick said. “But it gets pretty competitive with all of us, too.” Pick says receivers have become so interested in their spot on the list, a few have begun to lobby with Beaty, trying to convince him that a few more of their blocks were knockdowns. There’s a bit of controversy at the top of the list, too. Because of KU’s injuries, Pick moved to inside re-

ceiver in the team’s last game against Georgia Tech. That gives Pick fewer opportunities to get a defender on the ground. Many times, as an outside receiver, Beshears is able to blindside a safety, whereas Pick is forced to knock over the guy directly in front of him. “I’m going to say that definitely benefits D.J.,” Pick said with a smile. “I’ve got to talk to coach Beaty about that. I should definitely try to get a curve in there.” For now, every knockdown is given one point.

There’s also another way for a receiver to get a knockdown: by juking a defender so badly that he falls to the ground. The friendly knockdown competition — and the increased focus on outside blocking — seems to have benefited KU’s offense. The Jayhawks are averaging 4.5 yards per rush while running on 70 percent of their plays. Last season, KU averaged just 3.0 yards per carry in its first three games. KU also has 21 rushes of 10 yards or more.

FSHS upends LHS ————

FREE STATE JUNIOR ASHLEY POWERS GETS UNDER A SET in front of Olathe East freshman Lindsey Benson. FSHS lost to O-East, but rebounded to beat Lawrence High on Thursday at FSHS.


LHS has had a potent offense this season, and the only obstacle has been its own turnovers, not opposing defenses. The system works, and it puts the team in position to score points, so Wedd isn’t about to change how the team operates. “We’re averaging 450 yards a game,” Wedd said. “We like what we’re doing. We might tweak it here and there because Charles added a lot of speed. We won’t be as fast.” Junior running back Jordan Brown received most of the carries last week after Jackson went down, so he should be in the rushing mix. Juniors Tyrone Jenkins and Asaph Jewson are the only other running backs on the roster who are upperclassmen, so each could see a featured role tonight. But anyone who has watched the Lions this season knows that the running game isn’t complete without junior quarterback Brad Strauss carrying his share. In two games this season, he led the team in rushes. “We’re very fortunate to have someone that’s got the skill level to throw it and run,” Wedd said. While the offense tries to figure out its kinks in the running game, the receivers could have to shoulder more of the offensive load. Senior receiver Anthony Buffalomeat said the passing offense should be ready to score this week when called upon, something that has been a challenge this season. And there’s just one other glaring weakness that needs to be addressed. “Less turnovers,” Buffalomeat said. He said those words abruptly, as if that is the team’s biggest flaw. The Li-

Probable Starters

On a boisterous Senior Night at Free State High, the Firebirds used the crowd’s energy to slip past Lawrence High. Olathe East went home as the winner of the triangular featuring both Lawrence schools, but most people forgot when LHS and FSHS took the court. Some thought two sets weren’t long enough. “I wish it could have gone to three,” LHS libero Zoe Reed said after Free State’s 28-25, 28-26 victory. FSHS senior Mariah Dickson, one of four senior Firebirds featured at Senior Night, said the match was exciting for the fans, but not

how she wanted to go about beating the Lions. “I would have liked to not make it so close,” Dickson said. Seniors Brie Mingus, Sam Landgrebe and Dezzie James joined Dickson as the celebrated Firebird seniors on the evening. The Lions came in assuming the meet would go in the Firebirds’ favor. “It was Free State’s night,” LHS coach Stephanie Magnuson said. But it wasn’t all Free State’s night. The hype must have gotten to FSHS early, Firebirds coach Nancy Hopkins said. FSHS lost to O-East, 2522, 25-20. They rallied to beat the Lions, but Hopkins wasn’t overcome. “It’s a win,” Hopkins said.

“I don’t make such a big deal out of the rivalry.” The players didn’t either. The aftermath was friendly, with athletes embracing each other on a special night for the Free State seniors. “Our seniors congratulated their seniors,” LHS junior Krista Costa said. “It was a friendly match.” Many of the girls on LHS and FSHS were interested in the outcome of the tennis match between the two schools. And just like that event, the volleyball teams won’t let competition get in the way of friendship. “We’ll act like we never played each other,” Dickson said. “We’re always still friends no matter who won.” Olathe East also beat LHS, 25-10, 25-17.


getting it right the first time, according to Lisher. “When you do that you know, your team, assignment-wise and executionwise, is improving,” Lisher said. “It’s becoming more and more of the norm.” The Firebirds will also look to running back Shawn Knighton for another big game. He racked up 116 yards on the ground on 15 carries last week against Shawnee Mission Northwest and added his first two touchdowns of the season. Lisher credits Knighton’s weekly improvement at running back simply to getting back in the groove of the position. Knighton, a senior, played at tailback his sophomore year, but was needed at slot receiver last year.

ons have turned the ball over in all four games this season, including a few in the red zone. LHS worked on scoring all week, but it won’t mean much if the Lions can’t hang on to the ball. Most of the turnovers come from Strauss throwing interceptions – some not his fault – and receiving bad snaps, which is usually the beginning of an offensive disaster. Meanwhile, senior center Brady Murrish continues to sit out because of a knee injury. It was after his injury in the second game of the season that the fumbledsnap problems began. That’s just something else Strauss has to deal with along with throwing, running, playing safety and playing special teams.

Tennessee AD: SEC will expand beyond 13 By Beth Rucker Associated Press Sports Writer

KNOXVILLE, TENN. (AP) — Tennessee athletic director Dave Hart says the Southeastern Conference will expand again and officials at each school need to have a number of frank discussions before moving forward. The addition of Texas A&M as the SEC’s 13th team was a good one, Hart said, but the league’s leaders must take their next steps deliberately. “I think a lot of the conversation is just where we go from here, obviously, because at some point 13 will not be the number,” Hart told the Associated Press. “There

are a multitude of components to this that we have yet to really delve into. We will do that in relatively short order, but it’s very complex in nature.” The SEC announced Sunday that Texas A&M will join the conference in July after leaving the Big 12. SEC Commissioner Mike Slive said later in the week that the league’s presidents and chancellors are not currently considering any other schools for admission and that he anticipates having no additional members for the 2012-13 season. The SEC split into divisions after adding South Carolina and Arkansas in 1992, and the addition of just Texas

A&M would leave those divisions unbalanced. Possibilities of a 14th member include the Big 12’s Missouri and West Virginia or Louisville of the Big East. Hart, who was hired by Tennessee on Sept. 5 after spending three seasons at Alabama assisting athletic director Mal Moore, declined to say who he would like the 14th school to be. He said he anticipated a number of conversations would take place in the coming weeks among the SEC’s leaders on topics such as scheduling, division membership, academics and the “business aspect” of realignment. He added that those conversations will help Slive

determine the future of the conference. “I think to say the least, this is and will be a fluid situation for weeks to come, maybe months to come,” Hart said.” No one can really pinpoint that at this moment, and that’s just inherent to the whole conference realignment scenario. ... There are too many variables. People understand to some degree the complexity, but they really don’t understand the magnitude of the complexity. It’s ongoing in nature.” NCAA President Mark Emmert is encouraging conference officials to consider factors besides revenue when weighing whether or not to change conference al-

legiances. Emmert told the AP he was concerned about the perception that money is driving the decisions, declaring “this is not the NFL, the NBA, it’s not a business.” Hart disagrees. “You can’t be reactive in this business, and that’s what it is,” he said. “I know sometimes people are offended by the term ‘business,’ but there is a business aspect to intercollegiate athletics that you have to be cognizant of and be ready to position yourself as well as you possibly can.” Hart has a point. The SEC distributed a record $18.3 million to each of its 12 schools earlier this year. While business is certainly one aspect of expansion, Hart

said there are many factors to consider. The SEC wasn’t actively seeking to expand, but when Texas A&M approached in July with its desire to join, conference leaders not only recognized that expanding into Texas was a smart financial decision but thought the Aggies’ academic profile and fan base was a good fit for the league, he said. “As Mike (Slive) has said many times, we were not in the market to expand, but when Texas A&M called the commissioner and expressed their strong desire to be a member of the Southeastern Conference, the landscape changed — as well it should have,” Hart said. “I think you have to have vision.”

NU fans heading to Wisconsin ————

With or without tickets, Husker faithful flocking to Madison for Big Ten debut By Eric Olson Associated Press Sports Writer

BEAU BAUMERT, OF OMAHA, DISPLAYS HIS TICKETS to the Nebraska-Wisconsin football game while wearing his black Husker shirt Wednesday in Omaha, Neb. Baumert wanted to make sure he had seats to Nebraska’s Big Ten game against Wisconsin, so he and his roommate bought a pair of upper-deck season tickets from Wisconsin for $700 this summer.

Wisconsin officials tout Saturday night’s game against Nebraska as the toughest ticket ever at 94-year-old Camp Randall Stadium. As many as 30,000 Cornhuskers fans are expected to migrate to Madison, Wis., Badgers athletic director Barry Alvarez said Wednesday. Most probably won’t get into the stadium to watch Nebraska’s inaugural Big Ten game. Beau Baumert of Omaha, Neb., and his roommate, Jared Lubbe, wanted to make sure they had seats, so they bought a pair of upper-deck season tickets from Wisconsin for $700 this summer. “I knew last year that this game would be extremely hard to get a ticket for,” said Baumert, a 26-year-old gas pipeline engineer. “We started looking for ways in January. In late June or early July the Badgers’ web page said

Wisconsin, Nebraska built on toughness, winning By Eric Olson Associated Press Sports Writer

Wisconsin and Nebraska have a lot more in common than red-and-white uniforms and their new Big Ten allegiance. Thirty years after he finished his playing career at Nebraska, Barry Alvarez went to Madison, Wis., and built the football program in the image of the Cornhuskers. No one’s more excited than Alvarez about No. 8 Nebraska visiting the seventhranked Badgers for its inaugural Big Ten game Saturday night. “My background and what I believe in football were established at the University of Nebraska,” said Alvarez, now Wisconsin’s athletic director. “I felt fortunate to play for a great coach in Bob Devaney, and he had a tremendous staff. And as far as fundamentals — physical play, sound play — all those things are things I took with me to this program.” Wisconsin had lost 36 of 45 games before Alvarez began his 16-year run as coach in 1990. Alvarez won 118 games and three Big Ten championships before he turned the program over to Bret Bielema, who is 53-16 in six seasons with a Big Ten cochampionship. Wisconsin and Nebraska football is predicated on toughness, something Devaney emphasized immediately upon taking over a downtrodden Huskers program in 1962. Devaney went 9-2 his first season and was 101-202 over 11 years with national titles in 1970-71. Alvarez played linebacker for Devaney from 1965-67 and was the leading tackler for the ‘67 team that led the nation in total defense and forced a school-record 40 turnovers. Alvarez came to Nebraska from Pennsylvania but appreciated Devaney’s

A lot of people in Nebraska and a lot of people in Wisconsin are northern European types who tend to be big people and tend to have potential to be good linemen.” — Former NU coach Tom Osborne commitment to bringing in as many homegrown players as possible. The state produced the burly boys who anchored the lines, and Devaney would recruit nationally for speed and skill. At Nebraska, the run set up the pass, though some would say the run just set up more runs during Tom Osborne’s 25-year, 255-win coaching career (1973-1997) that ended with national championships three of his last four seasons. If that sounds familiar to Wisconsin fans, it should. Both Nebraska and Wisconsin have traditionally gone into each game intent on outmuscling and wearing down the opponent, though there was a four-year hiatus from that methodology when Bill Callahan brought the finesse of the West Coast offense to Lincoln from 2004-07. Interestingly, Callahan was an assistant under Alvarez at Wisconsin (1990-94). So was Kevin Cosgrove (1990-2003), Callahan’s much-maligned defensive coordinator at Nebraska. Fourth-year Nebraska coach Bo Pelini completely cut ties to the Callahan era after last season when he fired Shawn Watson as offensive coordinator and promoted Tim Beck to the job. Beck’s system gives a nod to the past, featuring the hard running of Rex Burkhead and a splash of Osborne’s favored triple-option with quarter-

back Taylor Martinez. Osborne goes back to the immigration patterns of the late 19th and early 20th centuries to explain the similar way the two programs were built. “A lot of people in Nebraska and a lot of people in Wisconsin are northern European types who tend to be big people and tend to have potential to be good linemen,” he said. “I think (Alvarez) always felt he could recruit his offensive linemen, some of his defensive linemen, from the state. “If you look at Nebraska over the years, we’ve had some fine linemen types out of Nebraska. You don’t want to stereotype too much. We’ve had great running backs and receivers and all kinds of people from Nebraska, and they’ve had some, too.” All five of Wisconsin’s starting offensive linemen are from the state, and they are big, averaging 322 pounds a man and none standing shorter than 6 feet 4. Three of the Huskers’ five starting offensive linemen — Seung Hoon Choi, Mike Caputo and Spencer Long — went to Nebraska high schools. Alvarez said he “stole” from Nebraska the idea for a walk-on program. “Having been the only Division I school in the state, as Nebraska is, I really felt there were a lot of players who were borderline — guys you’re not ready to pull the trigger on who we would actively recruit,” Alvarez said. “Quite frankly, they’ve been our saviors. I call them our ‘erasers.’ They make up for any mistakes you make in recruiting.” Saturday night’s game will be only the sixth between the schools and the first since 1974. Nebraska has won three of the five, but Wisconsin won the most recent meeting 21-20 in Madison.

they would release season tickets for purchase and that it would be the only way to get tickets to this game.” Wisconsin spokesman Brian Lucas said the school had 404 season tickets available for sale and that 67 of them were bought by people with Nebraska addresses. Each buyer was limited to four tickets. Under Big Ten rules, a school is allotted 3,000 tickets for road games. Nebraska received requests for 20,000 for this one. Fans willing to pay a premium could try their luck on the secondary market. Brokers were asking $200-$500 Wednesday for a ticket with a $49 face value. Many ticketless Nebraska fans aren’t deterred. They’re heading to Madison in droves. Mike Huffman, a 52-yearold physician from Lincoln, Neb., said he’ll fly to Madison with two friends with the un-

derstanding that they’ll pay no more than $200 apiece on the street for a ticket. If the price isn’t right, he said, they’ll be content to soak up the atmosphere from a local watering hole or the tailgate area. “This is a historic event. Man, I can’t miss it,” Huffman said. “I’ve got to be there. It’s one of those bucket-list things. I’m pretty sure I’d regret it if I didn’t go.” Brent Gries, a 51-year-old bar owner from Paxton, Neb., is loading up his Dodge pickup and heading to Madison with two friends. If they can find tickets for $100 or less, they’ll go inside the stadium. Otherwise, they’ll go to a bar or tailgate in Badgerville, an area north of the stadium that can accommodate 5,000 people with big-screen TVs and will be open throughout the game. Mike Fields, 33, a University of Nebraska web designer from Lincoln, said he and his wife and in-laws are driving

an RV to Madison to mark the occasion of the Huskers’ first Big Ten game. He said he probably wouldn’t buy a ticket for any price. He said the Huskers have let him down too many times in big games, and they’re 91⁄2-point underdogs. “I may be kicking myself a bit if we win and I wasn’t there,” Fields said, “but it might be worse if I spent the money and was there and we lost. I have a slim suspicion we might not be competitive.” Adding luster to the game is that it’s the first in Madison since 1962 that two teams ranked in the top 10 will square off. Wisconsin is No. 7 and Nebraska is No. 8. Wisconsin officials are hopeful the locals won’t give into temptation and sell tickets to Nebraska fans, many of whom will be wearing black instead of their traditional red so they stand out among the red-clad Badgers fans.

Rays roll into playoff rematch at Rangers By Stephen Hawkins Associated Press Sports Writer

ARLINGTON, TEXAS — The Texas Rangers had to win their last six games in the regular season to earn homefield advantage in the first round of the playoffs this time. Just to get into the postseason, Tampa Bay had to overcome a nine-game deficit in the final month and a sevenrun deficit in the final game. “Right now there’s nothing that we don’t think that we can’t do. ... We believe,” Rays manager Joe Maddon said Thursday, a day before the opener of a rematch of last year’s AL division series. “We definitely have a strong belief system going on right now, regardless of how we can look at these other teams that we have to play, and maybe there’s areas that they appear to be stronger than we, and probably are.” A tired Tampa Bay team arrived last Thursday at Rangers Ballpark, where the defending AL champion Rangers were already working out after getting to fly home from Los Angeles rather than having to go to Yankee Stadium. When the Rangers and Rays met in the playoffs last season, the visiting team won every game. That’s the only time that has ever happened in the major leagues.

“You’re talking about two teams that don’t really care where they play,” Rangers designated hitter Michael Young said. “It should be a fun series. You’re talking about two teams that are playing extremely well heading into the postseason.” Game 1 is Friday, when C.J. Wilson (16-7) pitches for the Rangers, who have won 14 of 16 games and set a franchise record with 96 victories. Wilson has known for more than a week that he’d be starting the playoff opener, and fellow left-hander Derek Holland (16-5) is set to start Game 2 on Saturday night. Maddon, whose Rays went 16-8 while having to play every day like an elimination game for the past few weeks, said coaches were still discussing their playoff rotation. While the only question for the Rangers over the last few days was whether they’d hold off Detroit for the American League’s secondbest mark, Tampa Bay finally clinched its playoff spot in a wild and exhilarating end to the regular season. Evan Longoria homered leading off the 12th inning late, late Wednesday night against the Yankees only minutes after Boston had given up two ninth-inning runs in a loss at Baltimore.

TAMPA BAY RAYS, FROM LEFT, SEAN RODRIGUEZ, EVAN LONGORIA, AND ELLIOT JOHNSON CELEBRATE clinching the AL wild card Thursday in St. Petersburg, Fla. The new-look Rays will take on the Texas Rangers in a rematch of last year’s playoffs. Damon was also part of the 2004 Red Sox team that overcame a 3-0 deficit to the Yankees in the AL championship series and then won the World Series in a fourgame sweep. “I actually feel like this was a better comeback,” Damon said. The Rays were nine games back in the wild-card stand-

ings Sept. 3. They caught up with Boston this week, and finally passed the Red Sox in a matter of minutes on the final night of the regular season. Among the players gone from last year’s Tampa Bay team are Jason Bartlett, who hit .400 in the AL division series, Carlos Pena and Carl Crawford, now with the Red

Sox. The departed pitchers include starter Matt Garza, closer Rafael Soriano and relievers Grant Balfour and Joaquin Benoit. The most significant change for the Rangers since a year ago is not having Cliff Lee, who left in free agency to return to Philadelphia after helping Texas get to its first World Series.

NEW YORK (AP) — After a long flight, a pre-dawn arrival and a workout that came all too soon, Derek Jeter is ready for the playoffs. Almost. First, a good night’s sleep would be nice. “Man, I got home at 4:30. I don’t even know what I’m saying right now,” a blearyeyed Jeter said Thursday, a day before he and the New York Yankees face Justin Verlander and the Detroit Tigers in an AL division series opener. “It’s not fun yet.” It’s about to be, though. Justin Verlander vs. CC Sabathia in Game 1 is about as good as postseason matchups get. “It’s funny. The season has kind of gone full circle,”

Yankees first baseman Mark Teixeira said. “We started in March with Verlander and CC opening day and now the playoffs. It should be fun.” Verlander, who went 24-5 with a 2.40 ERA and 250 strikeouts, looms as one of the biggest first-round obstacles for the Yankees. Of course, the Yankees have an ace of their own in Sabathia, who goes against a Tigers’ lineup that carried Detroit to a 30-9 finish to the season. “A whole new season starts tomorrow for everybody,” Tigers manager Jim Leyland said. And it starts with the tastiest of first-round pitching matchups.

ST. LOUIS CARDINALS STARTING PITCHER CHRIS CARPENTER (29) AND CATCHER YADIER MOLINA CELEBRATE the Cardinals’ victory over Houston on Wednesday in Houston. St. Louis will regroup before facing the Philadelphia Phillies. because the club deserved it. We were great for four months, and we had a little bad period, then we really came charging back. “Adversity was something that we embraced.” More adversity lingers for the postseason, with Matt Holliday (hand) and Rafael Furcal (hamstring) questionable for the Division Series opener. Holliday hasn’t played since leaving Tuesday’s game with a tendon strain, and Furcal was hurt on Monday. Allen Craig has given the offense a big boost in place of Holliday and finished with

a .315 average, 11 homers and 40 RBIs in only 200 at-bats. Nick Punto is the likely replacement at shortstop if Furcal can’t go. Kyle Lohse (14-8, 3.39) was set to start a one-game playoff on Thursday had the Cardinals and Braves tied. Now, he’ll start in the Division Series opener. Lohse endured alterations to the rotation that had him starting on long rest a handful of times after the All-Star break and was at his best in the final month, going 3-1 with a 1.37 ERA. He was 1-1 with a 1.76 ERA in two starts against the Phillies.

Underdog Diamondbacks to open against Brewers PHOENIX (AP) — Asked whether he would play up the underdog role to his upstart Arizona Diamondbacks, Kirk Gibson initially bristled. “Who says we’re the underdog?” the grizzled manager fired back. “I don’t think we feel we are. That’s the most important thing.” But, the more Gibson talked, the more it sounded like he was relishing the role of dark horse. After perfecting the chipon-the-shoulder thing during 17 big-league seasons, it seems Gibson doesn’t mind if his team plays that way, too. Predicted to be headed toward another so-so year after a pair of 90-loss seasons, the Diamondbacks were one of the surprises of baseball, earning their first NL West

title since 2007 on their way to winning 94 games. Now, the team that had so few preseason expectations is headed to the playoffs, opening the NLDS on Saturday at Milwaukee with ace Ian Kennedy facing Brewers righthander Yovani Gallardo. Making the cliché of one pitch at a time their mantra for the season, the Diamondbacks were the masters of the comeback, rallying from behind to win 48 times. And now the Diamondbacks are the team nobody is banking on, their odds of winning the World Series at 14-to-1 or worse. Not that anyone in Arizona is complaining, particularly Gibson. “It’s a good position to be in,” he said.

with Manny and his coaching staff and the tone they set in spring training,” Antonetti said Thursday. “I feel much better about where we are today than where we were a year ago, and I think a lot of that has to do with Manny’s leadership.” Acta is 149-175 in two seasons with Cleveland. “I’m very happy that I know I will be here for at least two years,” he said. “This is a place I want to be.”

White Sox, Marlins complete swap

BRIEFLY MLB’s attendance rallied in 2011 season NEW YORK — In a season full of comebacks, Major League Baseball attendance also rallied. MLB’s average attendance rose by about half of 1 percent this year, ending three straight seasons of drops. The NL East champion Philadelphia Phillies led baseball’s attendance chart for the

first time, drawing 3,680,718 fans. The Phillies have had 204 straight regular-season sellouts at Citizens Bank Park — Boston has sold out 712 straight games at Fenway Park. The overall attendance of 73,425,568 this year was the fifth-highest in MLB history. The 30 teams combined to average 30,229, STATS LLC said after the regular season ended Wednesday night. That was up from 30,067 last year.

Cleveland extends manager Acta CLEVELAND — Manny Acta’s second season managing the Indians was stressful. Next year, he can relax a little. One day after Acta led Cleveland to a second-place finish in the AL Central, general manager Chris Antonetti announced the club has exercised its 2013 option.

Acta kept the Indians in contention for much of this season before injuries overwhelmed the young club, which finished 14 games behind AL Central champion Detroit. A rash of injuries torpedoed a 30-15 start, but the Indians still managed to finish 80-82 — an 11-game improvement over Acta’s first season. “When we reflect on the successes we’ve had and the progress we’ve made, it began

MIAMI — The Chicago White Sox have acquired right-hander Jhan Marinez and infielder Ozzie Martinez as part of the agreement that allowed the Florida Marlins to hire Ozzie Guillen as manager. The Marlins acquired minor league right-hander Ricardo Andres in the deal announced Thursday.

PITTSBURGH RUNNING BACK RAY GRAHAM (1) IS GREETED by teammates Ryan Turnley (75), Cameron Saddler (5) and Mike Shanahan after scoring a touchdown on an eightyard run against South Florida on Thursday in Pittsburgh

Pitt dominates No. 16 USF By Will Graves Associated Press Sports Writer

PITTSBURGH — South Florida’s national showcase turned into Ray Graham’s coming out party. The Pittsburgh running back rushed for 226 yards and two touchdowns as the Panthers dominated the 16thranked Bulls 44-17 on Thursday night. Graham’s 13-yard touchdown gave Pitt (3-2, 1-0 Big East) the lead for good late in the first half and his 8-yard sprint up the middle early in the fourth quarter sealed it as the Panthers broke a fivegame losing streak against ranked opponents. “I thought it was his best performance,” Pitt coach Todd Graham said. “He’s a complete back.” The junior added four receptions for 42 yards and even returned kickoffs, a duty he insisted on after the Panthers struggled in the return game early. “The kid’s competitiveness is off the charts,” Todd Graham said. Pitt kept USF’s BJ Daniels under wraps all night. One of the nation’s top duel-threat quarterbacks couldn’t get it going with his arm or legs. Daniels ran for 43 yards — almost all of it coming on a lastgasp drive — and completed 18 of 36 passes for 223 mostly ineffective yards. The Panthers hadn’t beaten a ranked opponent since handling the then 10th-ranked Bulls in 2008. Five straight losses against quality competition followed, helping lead to former coach Dave Wannstedt’s retirement at the end of last season. Todd Graham came in promising to put together the kind of fireworks lacking during the end of the Wannstedt era. Graham has dubbed his system “high octane” and after a month of sputtering, the Panthers delivered a dynamic performance. “I’ve said all along we’ve got a good football team,” Graham said. “We made great strides tonight by playing a complete football game.” And doing it by completely manhandling the Bulls. Pitt held the ball for over 36 minutes, ran for 307 yards and converted 9 of 15 third downs. “It was an old-fashioned tail whipping is what it was,” USF coach Skip Holtz said. Tino Sunseri threw for 216 yards and a score for the Panthers, who avoided a second-half meltdown for a third straight week and instead poured it on against the sloppy, inconsistent Bulls (41, 0-1). USF came in off to their fourth 4-0 start in its last five seasons. All that September promise, however, dissolved

September’s over. That went fast. At the beginning of the month, I began soliciting suggestions from readers about renaming the History Channel, a network more concerned with “Ancient Aliens” than actual history. Most of the missives I received expressed concern about how the network had dumbed itself down and abandoned a credible study of the past for escapist fare, guy-centric docu-soaps and the ludicrous celebration of the occult. Of the hundreds of emails and letters sent, I received only one defending the network! The names suggested were mainly on the whimsical side, an expression of viewer confusion and resignation. They include “The Everything But History Channel,” ‘‘The Hodgepodge Channel” or “The Histrionics Channel.” Some focused on its appeal to older guys, such as “My Uncle Loves This Network.” Some of the more biting critiques assailed the network for groveling to viewers with the obvious and the stupid. Quite a few readers called it “The Low I.Q. Network.” Some readers did not so much defend History as spread the blame. They argued that the Travel Channel has focused too much on food and that National Geographic is similarly scattershot. Some critiques were a little out of date. Many argued that the TLC network was not about learning. To be fair, TLC has not called itself The Learning Channel for some time. Others suggested that History was still “The Hitler Network.” Again, that perception of the History Channel was set in stone about a decade ago, when it was the favorite TV pastime of Tony on “The Sopranos.” I’m not sure if anyone from History’s marketing department is paying attention, but they seem to have alienated many viewers. At least those who care enough to think and read and write.

Three weeks ago, he brought marijuana to my home and proceeded to smoke. I was appalled and told him to never bring it into my house again. He then proceeded to sneak it in the bathroom. He refused to quit and said if I want to see him, I’d have to go to his place. (His house is a wreck, and there is no place for me to sit.) We had an argument, and I haven’t heard from him since.

Killer cantaloupe, scary sprouts: What to do? By Marilynn Marchione Associated Press

CBS “60 MINUTES” COMMENTATOR ANDY ROONEY is shown Sept. 20, 2005, in New York. CBS announced Tuesday that Rooney will make his final appearance on “60 Minutes” on Sunday’s broadcast.

Andy Rooney exiting ‘60 Minutes’ Sunday By Frazier Moore Associated Press

NEW YORK — With 1,096 essays for “60 Minutes” under his belt, Andy Rooney will deliver his 1,097th on Sunday’s broadcast. And it will be his last as a regular contributor. The 92-year-old Rooney will announce his departure at the end of the program, where he has been featured since 1978, CBS News announced Tuesday. It will be preceded by a segment in which Rooney looks back on his career with “60 Minutes” correspondent Morley Safer. “There’s nobody like Andy and there never will be,” said Jeff Fager, chairman of CBS News and “60 Minutes” executive producer. He called Rooney’s contributions to the program “immeasurable,” and added, “It’s harder for him to do it every week, but he will always have the ability to speak his mind on ‘60 Minutes’ when the urge hits him.” Rooney began speaking his mind on “60 Minutes” in July 1978 with an essay about misleading reporting of automobile fatalities on the Independence Day weekend. “Car for car,” argued Rooney, “it’s one of the saf-

Are model airplanes a terrorist weapon? By Jay Lindsay Associated Press

BOSTON — Model airplanes are suddenly on the public’s radar as potential terrorist weapons. A 26-year-old man from a Boston suburb was arrested Wednesday and accused of plotting to attack the Pentagon and the U.S. Capitol with remote-controlled model planes packed with explosives. These are not balsa-woodand-rubber-band toys investigators are talking about. The FBI said Rezwan Ferdaus hoped to use military-jet replicas, 5 to 7 1/2 feet long, guided by GPS devices and capable of speeds over 100 mph. Federal officials have long been aware of the possibility someone might try to use such planes as weapons, but there are no restrictions on their purchase — Ferdaus is said to have bought his over the Internet. Counterterrorism experts and model-aircraft hobbyists said it would be nearly impossible to inflict large-scale damage of the sort Ferdaus allegedly envisioned using model planes. The aircraft are too small, can’t carry enough explosives and are too tricky to fly, they said. “The idea of pushing a button and this thing diving into the Pentagon is kind of a joke, actually,” said Greg Hahn, technical director of the Academy of Model Aeronautics. Rick Nelson, a former Navy helicopter pilot who is now a senior fellow at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, said Ferdaus would have had to hit a window or other vulnerable area to maximize damage, and that would have taken precision flying.

est weekends of the year to be going someplace.” In fact, fewer people die of all causes on that weekend than at most other times, his research told him. And since “fewer people are watching television over the Fourth,” he added, “I suppose fewer die of boredom.” He was a tender 59 years old, and, that fall, he became a regular contributor, delivering sometimes folksy, sometimes peppery observations on ordinary life under the title, “A Few Minutes With Andy Rooney.” Rooney had been a contributor to “60 Minutes” since the show’s debut. During its first season in 1968 he appeared a few times in silhouette with Palmer Williams, “60 Minutes” senior producer, in a short-lived segment called “Ipso and Facto.” He also produced “60 Minutes” segments during the broadcast’s first few seasons. Rooney joined CBS in 1949 as a writer for “Arthur Godfrey’s Talent Scouts,” a hit show of that day. He also wrote for “The Garry Moore Show” (1959-65), a popular variety show. At the same time, he was writing for CBS News public-affairs broadcasts such as “The Twentieth Century” and “Calendar.”

MILWAUKEE — Avoid foreign produce. Wash and peel your fruit. Keep it refrigerated. None of these common tips would have guaranteed your safety from the deadliest food outbreak in a decade, the one involving cantaloupes from Colorado. Whether it’s sprouts or spinach, turkey or hamburger; whether the government doubled, tripled or quadrupled inspections, the truth is that no food will ever be completely free of risk. And a few foods have become so risky that certain people such as children, pregnant women and the elderly may do best to avoid them altogether until growers and the government figure out how to make them safer, some food experts say. An unappetizing fact: Although the current cantaloupe outbreak has been tied to just one farm in Colorado, it’s at least the 19th outbreak involving that melon since 1984. It’s also the first one caused by listeria, a germ that actually likes to be in the refrigerator and thrives in this fruit, which cannot be cooked unless you want to eat melon mush. Listeria also prompted a California farm to recall bags of chopped romaine lettuce on Thursday because of possible contamination, though no illnesses have been reported. The greens from Salinas-based True Leaf Farms went to an Oregon distributor and possibly at least two other states — Washington and Idaho. So what should you do if you see cantaloupe on a salad bar or at the grocery store? Can you be sure all of the tainted stuff has been pulled from the market, since the last bad melons were shipped on Sept. 10? What if no one knows where the cantaloupe was grown? “If the store can’t tell them or the restaurant can’t tell them, I would not buy it at

CANTALOUPES ROT IN THE AFTERNOON HEAT Wednesday on a field on the Jensen Farms near Holly, Colo. The Food and Drug Administration has recalled 300,000 cases of cantaloupe grown on the Jensen Farms after connecting it with a listeria outbreak. Officials said Wednesday more illnesses and possibly more deaths may be linked to the outbreak of listeria in coming weeks. all,” said Chris Waldrop, director of the Food Policy Institute at the Consumer Federation of America. Laura Anderko, a Georgetown University public health expert, went a step further. “Honestly, as a nurse, I would tell people don’t eat the cantaloupe until this thing resolves itself,” she said. “This stuff happens because our system is not as tight as it needs to be.” The federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which has confirmed 13 deaths and 72 illnesses in the outbreak so far, has not told people to stop buying cantaloupe. However, the CDC and the Food and Drug Administration cannot even say where all of the tainted melon went, because it was sold and resold to many distributors across the nation. “When in doubt, throw it out,” is the CDC’s advice to consumers who have any cantaloupe whose origins they can’t determine. “Even if the cantaloupe is

gone, you need to wash the drawer or shelf it may have been on” to make sure other foods don’t become contaminated, said Caroline Smith DeWaal, director of food safety at the Center for Science in the Public Interest. Beyond that, each outbreak brings fresh lessons on how to make produce safer. And while some of these things aren’t guarantees, they can cut the odds you’ll lose at the food safety lottery. Some new tips food experts offered Thursday: ! Shop more often and consume fresh fruits and vegetables within a few days. This gives germs less chance to multiply and gives you more nutrients from your food, too. ! Don’t just wash a melon. Scrub it under running water to rinse off any dislodged germs, and let it dry. If you cut it while it’s still wet, “you may be sliding the pathogens more easily from the outside to the inside” on the knife, DeWaal said. ! Keep the fridge cold,

40 degrees or lower. Higher than that can let germs grow. ! Don’t get a false sense of security if you buy organic produce. That just means less pesticide — not necessarily fewer germs. ! Consider dropping especially risky foods from your diet. Bean sprouts are not safe for children, pregnant women or people with weak immune systems and certain diseases, but that doesn’t mean they’re OK for everyone else, said Michael Doyle, a microbiologist who heads the University of Georgia’s Center for Food Safety. Doyle also consults for a lot of food companies, including a major spinach producer that sought help after outbreaks involving that vegetable. He has chaired a food safety advisory council for McDonald’s for many years. “I don’t eat sprouts at all,” he said. If harmful bacteria are in the seeds “they grow in the sprouting process, and there’s nothing to kill them unless you cook them.”


Notable The economy is showing signs of modest improvement — not enough to reduce high unemployment but enough to ease fears that another recession might be near. Fewer people applied for unemployment benefits last week, though some of that was due to technical factors. And the economy grew slightly more in the April-June quarter than previously estimated. Growth is also expected to tick up in coming months. Chief executives of the nation’s largest companies are more pessimistic than they were just three months ago, according to a survey by a trade group, the Business Roundtable.

Germany keeps alive hopes for euro’s future BERLIN (AP) — Germany kept alive hopes that the 17-nation euro currency can survive the sprawling debt crisis when lawmakers in Europe’s largest economy voted overwhelmingly on Thursday in favor of expanding the powers of the eurozone’s bailout fund. The vote strengthened Chancellor Angela Merkel’s center-right coalition, which had struggled to win support from a bloc of rebellious members, and could bolster her ability to negotiate new European crisis measures. While many investors and experts believe new steps will be required in Europe, such as letting Greece write off more of its debt pile, Germany’s approval of the fund’s new powers and scope was necessary to avoid a new bout of massive market turmoil. “The support of the Bundestag is an important step for stabilizing the eurozone,” Michael Kemmer, head of Germany’s Bank Federation, told the news agency dapd. “With that, they have set a course that leads out of the debt crisis.” The $600 billion fund will be able to buy government bonds and lend money to banks and governments before they are in a full-blown crisis, making Europe’s response to market jitters more rapid and pre-emptive. Germany, which pays the lion’s share of European bail-

outs, became the 13th member of the eurozone to support the expansion of the rescue fund, the so-called European Financial Stability Facility, or EFSF. Cyprus and Estonia also passed the proposed expansion on Thursday. Austria’s parliament is widely expected to pass the measure on Friday, the same day Germany’s upper house of parliament is set to finalize Thursday’s vote, while the Netherlands is expected to approve it in the first week of October. The biggest remaining hurdle is the final country to vote — Slovakia — where the government will not have enough support to pass it if the leader of the junior coalition Freedom and Solidarity party follows through with threats to vote against the fund’s expansion. Its parliament is to vote later in October. In Berlin, 523 lawmakers in parliament, the Bundestag, voted in favor of expanding German participation to guarantee loans of up to ¤211 billion, compared with ¤123 billion so far. Eighty-five voted against it and three abstained. “It was a strong statement of Angela Merkel’s position. She has the backing and the support of the coalition and she is able to negotiate on the European level,” Peter Altmeier, the parliamentary whip for Merkel’s Christian Democrats, said after the tally was announced.

Bank of America to start charging debit card fees By Candice Choi Associated Press

NEW YORK — Will a monthly debit card fee soon be the norm? Ban of America said Thursday that it plans to start charging a $5 monthly fee when customers make debit card purchases. The fee will be rolled out starting early next year. Paying to use a debit card was unheard of before this year and is still a novel concept for many consumers. But several banks have recently introduced or started testing debit card fees. That’s in addition to the spate of other unwelcome changes checking account customers have seen in the past year. Bank of America’s announcement carries added weight because it is the largest U.S. bank by deposits. The fee will apply to basic accounts, which are marketed toward those with modest balances, and will be in addition to any existing monthly service fees. For example, one such account charges a $12 monthly fee unless customers meet certain conditions, such as maintaining a minimum average balance of $1,500. Customers will only be

charged the fee if they use their debit cards for purchases in any given month, said Anne Pace, a Bank of America spokeswoman. Those who only use their cards at ATMs won’t have to pay. The debit card fee is just the latest twist in the rapidly evolving market for checking account. A study by this week found that just 45 percent of checking accounts are now free with no strings attached, down from 65 percent last year and 76 percent in 2009. Customers can still get free checking in most cases, but only if they meet certain conditions, such as setting up direct deposit. The study also found that the total average cost for using an ATM rose to $3.81, from $3.74, the year before. The average overdraft fee inched up to $30.83, from $30.47 The changes come ahead of a regulation that goes into effect next month. Starting Oct. 1, the regulation will cap the fees that banks can collect from merchants whenever customers swipe their debit cards. Those fees generated $19 billion in revenue for banks in 2009, according to the Nilson Report, which tracks the payments industry.
