Backed-up sewage, widespread mold and other life-safety issues have caused the city to condemn all 24 apartments in a building in southern Lawrence, leaving more than a dozen households seeking a new place to live. City inspectors began the condemnation process Friday morning at 1821 W. 26th St. Brian Jimenez, code enforcement manager for the city, said 13 of the 24 apartments were occupied, and the city has set a tentative date of Oct. 22 as a date for residents to vacate the apartments. “There are hallways that have mushrooms growing out of the carpets and the baseboards,” Jimenez said. “Overall, the building is in bad shape. It is safe to say in this situation we have a property owner who isn’t taking care of business as he should.” Tax records show the apartment building is

Severe weather, possibly tornadoes, in forecast today By Alex Garrison email@example.com
The area could see severe storms this weekend, including a slight risk of tornadoes. The National Weather Service predicts thunderstorms will hit Lawrence beginning this morning with increasing chance of severe weather as the day progresses. Forecasts include potential for strong winds and large hail in Douglas, Franklin, Jefferson
and Shawnee counties. Forecasters say high dew points, wind speeds and general instability could create favorable conditions for super-cell thunderstorms and possibly tornadoes. There’s about an 80 percent chance of severe thunderstorms developing today in Lawrence, said Kris Sanders, a meteorologist at the National Weather Service in Topeka. Those thunderstorms may create a squall line, meaning
that several cells of inclement weather, including high winds, may hit. These storms may bring large hail and winds up to 60 mph. Sanders said Douglas County could get an inch of rain by the end of the event. Having a chance of tornadic activity is “uncommon but not unheard of,” he said. “This happening this time of year is not unlike the transition from winter to spring; it’s a battling of the air masses between
warm and cold,” he said. “Now we have cold air building in Canada as the days get shorter, but still have warm air masses coming in, too.” Those warm-air pockets may settle in over swaths as big as the Mississippi and Missouri valleys, The Associated Press reports, putting almost all of the Midwest in the path of possible super-cells. Super-cells hit before squall lines, so the threat of hail or tornadic activity is replaced
by that of strong winds. The forecast for Sunday is much calmer, with a destabilizing of winds and a temperature prediction in the mid-70s. Concerns about the potential for storms prompted the postponement of Saturday’s Sunflower League Invitational cross country meet at Rim Rock Farm, north of Lawrence. The meet has been rescheduled for Monday. Check LJWorld.com today for severe weather updates.
Brownback’s top staff attorney among appeals court applicants By John Hanna Associated Press
TOPEKA — Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback’s top staff attorney is among 21 applicants for an opening on the state’s secondhighest court amid a debate about giving the governor and legislators more power in selecting appellate judges.

TOPEKA — With the Nov. 6 election approaching, Kansas politicians are fighting over public school finance. On the campaign trail, Democrats are pounding Gov. Sam Brownback and his conservative Republican followers for making what the Democrats say are the largest cuts to public schools in Kansas history. And the Democrats are accusing Brownback of enacting those cuts in order to shore up revenue to pay for the massive tax cut that Brownback signed into law, which will eliminate state income taxes for the owners of 191,000 businesses. “That is the largest (school) cut that has ever been put before the Legislature at any one time,” said House Minority Leader Paul Davis, DLawrence. “The people who voted for that budget clearly decided that putting money away for a big tax (cut) was more important than getting money into the classroom.” But Republicans are crying foul, saying that there were larger school cuts during the administration of Brownback’s Democratic predecessor Mark Parkinson. The clashing viewpoints are being hashed out in legislative candidate forums across the state. House Appropriations Chairman Marc Rhoades, R-Newton, said Parkinson

Democrats, GOP argue over who cut more school funding By Scott Rothschild
ALOIS “BUD” JOSEPH MADL Alois (Bud) Joseph Madl passed away Thursday, October 11, 2012, at the KU Medical Center following a massive stroke. His rosary will be held Monday, October 15, 2012, 6:00p.m. at the Annunciation Catholic Church, Baldwin City, KS, followed by a visitation from 6:30 to 8:00 p.m. A funeral mass will be said on Tuesday, October 16,2012 at 10:00 a.m. at the Annunciation Catholic Church with military honors to follow at Mt. Calvary Cemetery, Baldwin City. Bud was born February 6, 1926 at the family farm in rural Douglas County. He was the son of Joseph Madl and Barbara (Hadl) Madl. He received his elementary education in a one-room school at Prospect where he starred in Math and pitching for the baseball team. He completed one and onehalf years at Baldwin High School before stopping to work on the family farm. At the age of 18, Bud enlisted in the U.S. Army. He was inducted August 30, 1944 at Ft. Leavenworth, KS. On January 18, 1945, he departed from New York Harbor, where the ice was so thick an ice-breaker ship plowed a path through two feet of ice, to arrive at the European, Asian, and Middle East Theater on January 30. He was moved to the battle front where he saw action in the Battle of the Bulge during which he celebrated his nineteenth birthday. He served with Company K, 23rd Infantry Regiment, 2nd Division. He earned the grade of Private First Class and was awarded the Good Conduct Medal, the EAMET Ribbon, the American Theater Ribbon, and Victory Ribbon. He was personally selected to guard captured German generals in Czechoslovakia for which he received a Presidential Citation. He returned to New York Harbor July 20, 1945. His final duty was serving as a prison guard at the United States Disciplinary Barracks in

The applicants are seeking the seat held by Judge Christel Marquardt, who plans to retire in January. It will be Brownback’s second appointment to the 13-member Court of Appeals. There is another vacancy because Chief Judge Richard Greene died earlier this week. Brownback and other critics of the current selection process argue it’s not open enough and attorneys, with a nominating commission majority, have too much influence. Supporters argue the process eliminates politics from judicial appointments. Voters decide whether appellate court members remain in office, once every four years for the Court of Appeals, and once every six years for the Supreme Court. But
There is a stark difference between having to make budget cuts out of necessity during a recession affecting the entire country and most of the world, and making cuts to education in order to stock money away for a massive tax cut.”

— House Minority Leader Paul Davis, D-Lawrence cut $388 from base state aid per pupil. “These budget cuts were supported by the minority party and moderate Republicans,” Rhoades said. Under Brownback’s tenure, base state aid per pupil was cut $232 per student, from $4,012 per student to $3,780 per student. Democrats are quick to note the different circumstances facing Parkinson, who came to office in the middle of the worst budget crisis in Kansas history. The former lieutenant governor became governor in 2009 when Gov. Kathleen Sebelius was picked by President Barack Obama to be head of the federal health and human services agency. And Parkinson approved the school cuts himself, in a series of incremental allotments. “There is a stark difference between having to make budget cuts out of necessity during a recession affecting the entire country and most of the world, and making cuts to education in order to stock money away for a massive tax cut,” Davis said.
But when Brownback came into office in January 2011, he was facing a projected $500 million revenue shortfall. Revenues have since rebounded, and earlier this year, he signed an increase of base state aid of $58 per pupil, raising that to the current level of $3,838 per student. Democrats says the increase was not nearly as much as it should have been given the magnitude of earlier cuts, and the state produced a $500 million ending-year balance. And they say because of the tax cuts Brownback signed into law, school funding will suffer in the future. In addition to the tax breaks for business owners, the new law will reduce the top individual state income tax rate from 6.45 percent to 4.9 percent. Legislative researchers say the cuts will produce revenue shortfalls approaching $2.5 billion. But Brownback says the cuts will grow the economy, which will produce more revenue.
partment has been in contact with Tedrow for more than a year about a defective roof on the building. Jimenez said tenant complaints at the apartment building grew, and city officials conducted an apartment-byapartment inspection on Thursday. “The poor conditions are pretty widespread throughout the facility,” Jimenez said. “The issues just haven’t been corrected for quite some time.” Jimenez said the city will try to work with the residents who are being displaced, but as city officials learned when they
recently condemned a North Lawrence trailer park, charitable resources to help residences displaced by code problems are scarce. “Unfortunately, there really is no emergency funding within Douglas County for this,” said Jimenez. “We’re cognizant that this impacts tenants who really haven’t done anything wrong. We just try to extend deadlines when we can and work with people. We don’t want to create homelessness.”
no sitting judge or justice has failed to win retention in the 52 years the system has been in place. Brownback spokeswoman Sherriene JonesSontag declined to comment about Stegall’s application, saying the governor doesn’t discuss potential judicial nominees publicly. Stegall was not in his Statehouse office when the list of applicants was released Friday afternoon; there was no public telephone listing for his Lawrence home, and he did not respond to a message sent through Facebook. Stegall had a private law practice and served two years as Jefferson County attorney before joining Brownback’s staff when Brownback became governor in January 2011. Like Brownback, Stegall is a conservative Republican. He previously represented former Attorney General Phill Kline, another GOP conservative, in legal disputes stem-
ming from investigations of abortion providers. But Stegall gained national attention in 2010 for representing four Baptist missionaries, including a Topeka youth pastor, who were jailed in Haiti over allegations of trying to take 33 children out of the country after the devastating earthquake there that year. They were later released without facing charges. Powell also was known as a conservative Republican and strong abortion opponent while serving in the Legislature. He is now the presiding judge of the Sedgwick County court’s family law department. Three other district court judges applied for the Court of Appeals position: Steven Roth of Pottawatomie County, Kim Schroeder of Stevens County and Guy Steier of Cloud County. Wichita Municipal Court Judge Bryce Abbott also is a candidate.

Parole denied for suspect in 1985 rape By Shaun Hittle email@example.com

The Kansas Prison Review Board has denied parole for at least three years to a Kansas inmate currently charged with a Topeka cold case rape for which another man spent seven years in prison. Joel L. Russell, 46 — who is serving up to a life sentence in prison on several sex crimes committed in 1992 — was denied parole until at least June 2015, said Kansas Department of Corrections spokesman Jeremy Barclay.

VP debate sets stage for 2nd Obama-Romney duel By Dolph C. Simons Jr.
The buildup and hype for Thursday’s debate between Vice President Joe Biden and Republican challenger Rep. Paul Ryan placed enormous pressures on the two men to carry out and execute specific goals for each of their parties. Biden was given the task of re-energizing stalwart Democrats who were terribly disappointed and surprised by President Obama’s listless, inept and poor performance in his debate with Mitt Romney. Various polls following last week’s debate shocked many, with Romney pulling ahead of the president. Obviously Biden was sent into Thursday’s debate to present a fighting, combative and passionate defense of the Obama administration. Ryan, a relative newcomer to the national scene compared with the 69-year-old Biden, had the goal of showing he was knowledgeable about domestic as well as foreign policy issues, that he was thoughtful and that voters who call themselves “independent” or “undecided” could have confidence in his ability to serve as a sound,
thoughtful vice president to strengthen the GOP ticket. He needed to introduce himself to millions of Americans and demonstrate he is on top of issues, articulate, and a sound thinker. Each man did a creditable job and it is likely those who turned on their TVs to watch the show, those who were staunch, longtime Democrats as well as those who were loyal Republicans, probably turned off their TV sets thinking their man won the debate. It would be interesting to know if the debate actually resulted in any significant changes among those who favored either candidate before the debate. The unknown number of genuine “undecided” potential voters and how they reacted to the debate remains up in the air. In one way, Thursday’s debate was good, entertaining television, but what it really did was set the stage and anticipation for the upcoming duel between Obama and Romney. Unfortunately Biden’s behavior during the debate overshadowed any serious, sustained discussion of very important matters. His laughing, mocking, smirking, mugging and between
70 and 80 interruptions was effective in diverting a viewer’s attention away from what Ryan was saying. It’s very likely this was part of his plan to try to rattle Ryan with the hope the congressman would show he cannot stand up to pressure and/or would lose control during the debate.
COMMENTARY Following the debate, numerous seasoned political reporters said they had never seen in any previous presidential or vice presidential debates such a display of openly disrespectful, rude manners as Biden used in his tactics. Throughout the current presidential campaign, various polls have tried to judge the “likability” factor of each candidate and how this might play in determining how a person decides whom to support. Will Biden’s conduct play a role, favorable or unfavorable, in the likability category? As was the case with the presidential debate, the ObamaBiden administration does not
enjoy a sparkling track record over the past three and a half years. Unemployment numbers, national debt, record numbers of people relying on food stamps, greater government involvement in the lives of all Americans, the housing situation, other economic factors, along with a deteriorating situation for Uncle Sam in foreign affairs, all combine to make it difficult for Obama and Biden to garner much support and confidence that the Demo team could perform any better with another four years in office. Also, in believability factors, which should be critical in judging the character of a president and vice president, the ObamaBiden team should have taken a big hit with the manner in which the White House has dealt with the Benghazi situation. Obama’s pledge of being transparent has been shattered during the past three years, and today he is facing serious questions about how he and his surrogates have leveled with the public. Given this record, both Romney and Ryan should have had a leg up in debating Obama and Biden because the incumbents must defend their performances.
It appears the Demo strategists decided the best way for Biden to deal with this difficultto-defend situation was to try to disrupt and divert attention during the debate. The stakes for this country are enormous. One party favors greater government control, and the other favors more individual freedom. When Obama was seeking election in the 2008 campaign he told his audiences that with their support he was only days away from being able to make fundamental changes in our government and in America. Thus far, have these changes benefited the country? What changes would Obama call for if he were elected for another four-year term and didn’t have to worry about being re-elected? There was no clear winner in Thursday’s debate and election day is drawing closer, putting increasing pressure on Romney and Obama in how they perform next week. Will Romney come up with another winning performance, and how will Obama prepare to rebound with a strong, forceful presentation? Consider the stakes in how Americans vote on Nov. 6.

EU wins Nobel Peace Prize By Don Melvin, Julia Gronnevet and Karl Ritter Associated Press
BRUSSELS — The European Commission president had no reason to expect anything but another bad day. Then, out of the blue, after three years of back-biting and seemingly daily financial crisis, the European Union won the Nobel Peace Prize for fostering peace on a continent long ravaged by war. It was a badly needed morale boost for a 60-year-old union in the midst of a midlife crisis. Even as it announced the award Friday, the Norwegian prize jury warned that the financial crisis challenging the 27-nation bloc’s unity could lead to a return to “extremism and nationalism.” It urged Europeans to remember the EU’s role in building peace and reconciliation among enemies who fought Europe’s bloodiest wars, even as they tackle the economic crisis that threatens its future. The award was hailed at EU headquarters in Brussels and by pro-EU leaders across Europe, but derided by “euroskeptics” who consider the EU an elitist super-state that erodes national identities. Emerging for a brief encounter with reporters, European Commission President Jose Manuel Barroso was beaming as he declared: “Ladies and gentlemen, I have to say that when I woke up this morning, I did not expect it to be such a good day. “The Nobel Peace Prize committee and the international community are now

BUTCH CASSIDY If you saw last week’s ad, then you saw the one for Butch Cassidy’s brother and partner in crime. This is Butch’s week to hold you captive. He is a 1 year old Labrador Retriever mix with a shiny black coat. Like his brother, he will need some basic training to get him over his outlaw ways. He’s a large dog, so keep that in mind when considering him for a family with small children. • SAVE MONEY • HELP LOCAL CHARITIES • SUPPORT LOCALLY-OWNED BUSINESS
countries like Spain and Greece, where many blame Germany and other northern EU neighbors for the painful austerity measures like higher taxes and job cuts they have endured in a so-far failed effort to salvage their floundering economies. As the EU grinds toward
the three-year mark in its withering financial crisis, problems abound, progress is slow and 25 million people are out of work. The prize will do nothing to balance out-of-kilter national budgets or spur economic growth in Greece or bring down the borrowing costs of some of the weaker countries that use the euro, such as Spain. Nor will it provide solace to the unemployed. “For them, people may even think that this is cynical,” said Paul De Grauwe, an economist with the London School of Economics. “If I were living in Portugal or Spain or Greece, I would be upset about it: ‘They are giving this prize to these people in Brussels, and they are the source of my misery.’” Still, there seems little doubt that the European Union has played a major role in bringing peace to a continent that had known precious little of it. Growing out of the devastation of World War II, the premise of the project was that closer economic interdependence would ensure that centuries-old enemies never again turn on each other. The EU is now made up of 500 million people in 27 nations, with others lined up to join. “If we ask Europeans anywhere, in any country, of any age, including the youngest ones, they can’t imagine that there could be war in Europe today. It’s over,” said former French President Valerie Giscard d’Estaing, who was born in Germany, fought in World War II and drafted the first version of the EU constitution.

Warning reflects fears of Iran cyberattack WASHINGTON (AP) — Defense Secretary Leon Panetta’s pointed warning that the U.S. will strike back against a cyberattack underscores the Obama administration’s growing concern that Iran could be the first country to unleash cyberterrorism on America. Panetta’s unusually strong comments Thursday came as former U.S. government officials and cybersecurity experts said the U.S. believes Iranian-based hackers were responsible for cyberattacks that devastated computer systems of Persian Gulf oil and gas companies. Unencumbered by diplomatic or economic ties that restrain other nations from direct conflict with the U.S.,
Iran is an unpredictable foe that national security experts contend is not only capable but willing to use a computer-based attack. Panetta made clear that the military is ready to retaliate — though he didn’t say how — if it believes the nation is threatened by a cyberattack, and he made it evident that the U.S. would consider a preemptive strike. “Iran is a country for whom terror has simply been another tool in their foreign policy toolbox, and they are a country that feels it has less and less to lose by breaking the norms of the rest of the world,” said Stewart Baker, former assistant secretary at the Department of Homeland Security.

LAW ENFORCEMENT REPORT
Walter Gardenhire, code enforcement officer, Lawrence “I have in Topeka years ago. It was horrible. And if the landlord doesn’t enforce it, who do you go to?”
• A Kansas City, Mo., man who led Lawrence police on a high-speed chase Thursday evening was charged Friday in Douglas County District Court with 14 crimes, mostly traffic offenses. Lawrence police tried to pull over Frank E. Boynton, 32, about 9 p.m. Thursday in the 400 block of East 23rd Street because, they said, Boynton was using a stolen license plate. But Boynton fled, and the chase was called off by police after Boynton’s vehicle exceeded 70 mph. Police later located Boynton, who fled his vehicle after crashing it into a fence in the 2200 block of Alabama Street. Boynton was arrested, and police discovered two warrants for Boynton’s arrest. The two warrants were for various offenses, including theft, criminal damage and obstruction of justice. The current charges include fleeing police, driving with a suspended license, theft and reckless driving. Boynton’s bond was set at $40,000.

• Lawrence police responded Thursday to a burglary that occurred between Wednesday night and noon Thursday, said Lawrence police Sgt. Trent McKinley. A resident in the 1500 block of Lindenwood Lane reported that someone removed a window air-conditioning unit to gain access to the home while the resident was not home. The burglar stole cash and a video game system. A suspect in the case has not been identified. • A 32-year-old Lawrence man was charged Friday in Douglas County District Court with the rape of a 24-year-old college student, an acquaintance of the man. According to Lawrence police, the woman, while at Lawrence Memorial Hospital on Oct. 7, reported the man had sexually assaulted her earlier at a home in central Lawrence. Lawrence police Sgt. Trent McKinley said officers conducted numerous interviews during the week prior to arresting the man Thursday night. Bond was set at $75,000, and the next court hearing in the case is 2 p.m. Oct. 30. The JournalWorld generally does not name suspects in sex crimes unless they are convicted.

Activate is in now. Sump in 2005 created a new technology that gives campaigns a way to equip their volunteer calling teams with the same type of high-speed dialing technology that expensive, professional calling centers use. “Instead of five to 10 calls an hour, a volunteer team can now do 35 to 40 an hour,” Sump said. (Fair warning, Mark: The next time my phone rings during dinner, I’m calling you.) Activate’s Lawrence office currently has just two full-time employees and about 23 part-time employees. The company still has a larger office in Minneapolis. Many of the part-time employees staff a new call center that Sump has opened. Sump began working on Democratic campaigns in the late 1980s. (I’m sure you all remember the rousing Dick Gephardt campaign in 1988.) Sump has been on the “circuit,” he said, ever since. Sump ended up hooking up with a slightly more successful Democratic candidate in the 1990s. Sump was part of the Bill Clinton campaign team, and Sump stayed on the campaign staff for the entire eight years of the Clinton presidency. “I was very fortunate to travel the world with the Clintons,” Sump said. “I can tell you that being in such close proximity to the president of the United States is very interesting.” Sump believes his contacts in the Democratic party will bring some polling business to his new Lawrence call center. Sump chose Lawrence for the new venture because he received his undergraduate degree from KU in the mid-1980s. Now, he is working on his doctorate in political
science from KU. By the time he completes his doctorate, Sump said, he believes he’ll be ready to launch the next phase of his company, which he is predicting will involve creating a new paradigm for how campaigns reach voters. “The modern communication formula for campaigns hasn’t changed in a long time,” Sump said. “Today, 60 to 70 percent of the budget still goes to the TV guys. Communication has changed so dramatically that there is no way that formula makes sense anymore.” Sump plans to do his dissertation on new communication strategies for campaigns, and he’s optimistic that will lead to a thriving business in Lawrence. “Whatever my next big thing will be, I can tell you it will be here in Lawrence,” Sump said.
The city’s trash cart program will get in full swing on Monday. The city’s cart vendor will begin delivering carts to selected neighborhoods on Monday and will continue deliveries on pretty much every weekday through Nov. 9. “The goal is to deliver 800 to 1,000 carts per day, and when we are complete, just under 20,000 households will get a trash cart,” said Megan Gilliland, spokeswoman for the city. Gilliland said the city is allowing its vendor to set its own delivery routes, so information on when particular areas of town will receive their carts isn’t yet available. “It really could be coming any day,” Gilliland said. The cart will be left at residents’ curbs. Gilliland said each cart also will come with a packet of information that contains answers to frequently asked questions, and provides the dates (Nov. 9 and Nov. 16) for when the city will collect and re-

Lawrence Gymnastics has completed a deal to purchase the building at 5150 Clinton Parkway, which is near the former Sport-2-Sport location and the current Jayhawk Tennis center. The new 10,000-squarefoot building will serve as a second location for Lawrence Gymnastics. The company will continue to operate out of its 4930 Legends Drive building as well. The Legends Drive building will focus more on team and competitionlevel gymnastics, plus boys recreational gymnastics. The 5150 Clinton Parkway building will house preschool gymnastics classes, kids fitness classes, girls recreational gymnastics and dance, cheer and other similar programs.
In the 1960s, Leo Beuerman was a fixture in downtown Lawrence. Born in 1902 with a host of physical disabilities, Beuerman stood 3-foot-3, and before he was 30 he had lost all his hearing. But for more than a decade, Beuerman showed up to work each day to sell pencils and other items out of a cart he made himself. Beuerman was the subject of an Academy Award-nominated documentary in 1969, and one of the most memorable
scenes about Beuerman is how he arrived to work each day. He drove a specially modified tractor to town, and the way in which he moved his small frame off the tractor was quite a sight to see. Beuerman died in 1974, but he is still remembered by longer-term members of the community Well, there is an effort under way to make sure his memory is elevated just a bit. Currently there is a sidewalk plaque honoring Beuerman that is just outside Teller’s Restaurant, which used to be the First National Bank Building, a place he often would sell his pencils. But the plaque is frequently covered up by chairs or tables related to Teller’s sidewalk dining operations. Lawrence resident Frank Janzen has sent a request to city officials asking that the plaque be moved to the side of a concrete planter near the Teller’s location. The planter, which is near the corner of Eighth and Mass., is more visible to pedestrians, and also is near the spot where Beuerman parked his tractor, Janzen writes. Janzen said representatives from Teller’s approve of the move, and city officials with Public Works and Parks and Recreation have indicated moving the plaque is feasible. Plus, Janzen said four nieces and nephews of Beuerman’s were in town recently and thought moving the plaque was a good idea. The request currently is working its way through the approval process at the Lawrence-Douglas County Planning Department.

Well, all streaks must come to an end — and no, this isn’t an article about the Kansas University football team. Instead, this is about a streak Lawrence fans didn’t want to see end. The city’s latest sales tax collections are in the books, and the September report is the first one in 12 months that posted a decline compared with the same period a year ago. Because of a lag in the reporting process, the city’s September sales tax report actually is for sales made from mid-July through mid-August. So that would indicate the back-to-school shopping period in Lawrence wasn’t quite as robust as it was the year before. For the period, Lawrence retailers tallied $98.4 million in sales. That is the lowest total for the period — even when not adjusted for inflation — since 2007. When adjusted for inflation, it appears the total is the lowest since at least 1995, which is how far my records date back. (My abacus started smoking, though, so I can’t make that claim with complete certainty.) But, regardless, the back-to-school shopping period appeared to be a bit of a stinker. The good news is that it is just one month. The rest of 2012 has been pretty darn good when it comes to retail sales in the city. With nine months in the book, the city is still projecting sales tax collections to come in $1.1 million more than budgeted in 2012. Here’s a look at total retail sales in Lawrence through the September reporting period compared with the same period in past years. The numbers in parentheses are the sales totals adjusted for inflation in 2012 dollars:
2012: $1.00 billion
2011: $947.92 million ($970.84M)
2010: $916.52 million ($968.32M)
2009: $930.70 million ($999.43M)
2008: $966.22 million ($1.03B) So, in other words, even when adjusted for inflation, Lawrence retailers are on track to have their best year since the prerecession days of 2008. But it will be interesting to see if the rest of 2012 finishes strong or whether the retail economy shows signs of losing momentum. As a certain football team can tell you, it often is not how you start but rather how you finish that makes the difference.
Some of you have been wondering when the new four-lane section of U.S. Highway 59 will open. The Kansas Department of Transportation previously had said the multimillion-dollar project would open to traffic during the first week of October. After about the fourth barricade I hit, I began to realize that the road perhaps was still closed. A spokeswoman with KDOT now tells me that the new stretch of highway is expected to open next week. No word on what caused the delay, but crews continue to work on finishing final details such as lane markings, sign installation and other details.
The city of Lawrence has completed an interesting project related to its cemeteries. The city is now offering an interactive, searchable, online map of all burials in the Oak Hill, Memorial Park and Maple Grove cemeteries. The map will provide the name, burial date, cemetery section and specific lot where the deceased is buried. The records are from present day all the way back to December 1832. The city plans to update the map monthly. The map can be found at the city’s web site at lawks.us/ cemetery-map.

Group criticizes Koch brothers, Brownback City to buy new quint fire truck

TOPEKA — A group opposed to policies pushed by the Koch brothers made a stop Friday at the Statehouse to deliver a letter to Gov. Sam Brownback, urging him to denounce the “Greed Agenda.” A spokeswoman for Koch industries said the group, called the Patriot Majority USA, was being dishonest and that the Koch brothers supported economic freedom. “It’s not too late to change course — to work for a vision that benefits Kansans instead of draining it in favor of a few,” the Patriot Majority USA said in its letter. Brownback was in Wichita, and his office declined to comment. The letter denounced Brownback’s tax cuts and several other policies embraced by Brownback that have been pushed by groups affiliated with billionaires Charles and David Koch, who run Wichita-based Koch Industries. These groups include Americans for Prosperity and the American Legislative Exchange Council. The tax cuts will benefit the wealthiest Kansans while draining needed revenues for schools and social services, group members said. Brownback has defended the tax cuts, saying they will grow the economy, and he has vowed to
protect funding for core state services. Brownback signed into law tax cuts that exempt the owners of 191,000 partnerships, sole proprietorships and other businesses from income taxes, and drop the top individual income tax rate from 6.45 percent to 4.9 percent. Patriot Majority USA members said they were fighting on the national level and in many states proposals that would do away with the minimum wage, turn Medicare into a voucher program and weaken unions. The group, traveling in two buses covered with anti-Koch messages, are on a 23-state tour. Melissa Cohlmia, a spokeswoman for Koch Industries, said the Patriot Majority was a front group for unions and Democratic leaders. “Other than the paid operatives on the Patriot Majority bus, there were about 15 people in attendance, which demonstrates that the general public can see through the lies and dishonest attacks being lodged by this group,” Cohlmia said. She said the Kochs support economic freedom, “which history has proven time and again is the best way to advance societal progress — especially amongst the poor.” — Statehouse reporter Scott Rothschild can be reached at 785-423-0668.
Local candidate forum set for Monday A candidate forum for seven local and state races will take place Monday at the Douglas County Courthouse at 11th and Massachusetts streets. The event, which is free and open to the public, kicks off at 6:30 p.m. in the County Commission chambers. The forum is sponsored by the Voter Education Coalition and 6News, and it will be broadcast live on Knology channel 6. The Voter Education Coalition is a nonpartisan organization founded to promote civil dialogue and voter participation. Some questions for the candidates will be prepared in advance and others will be accepted from the audience as time permits. The forums will be moderated by Ann Gardner, editorial page editor of the Lawrence Journal-World, and Cory Smith, 6News anchor.
Thirty minutes will be allotted each race on this schedule:
6:30 p.m., State Board of Education, District 4: Carolyn Campbell, Democrat; Jack Wu, Republican.
7 p.m., Douglas County Commission, District 2: Frank Male, Republican; Nancy Thellman, Democrat.

BOTTOM LINE City commissioners will be asked to approve a $972,525 purchase of a new quint fire engine from Pierce Manufacturing. The new quint will replace a 1994 unit that has nearly 69,000 miles and more than 10,000 hours of service time on its engine. The city’s maintenance garage identified the 1994 unit as the department vehicle in the highest need of replacement because of several structural issues, including significant rust that has prevented the cab doors of the vehicle from working at times.
BACKGROUND City staff members are proposing the city issue $722,525 in new debt through general obligation bonds to pay for the bulk of the purchase. The remaining money will come from the city’s infrastructure sales tax, approved by voters in 2008.

Obama’s Big Bird counterattack WASHINGTON — No mystery about the trajectory of this race. It was static for months as President Obama held a marginal lead. Then came the conventions. The Republicans squandered Tampa; the Democrats got a 3- to 4-point bounce out of Charlotte. And kept it. Until the first debate. In 90 minutes, Mitt Romney wiped out the bump — and maybe more. Democrats are shellshocked and left searching for excuses. Start with scapegoats: the hapless John Kerry, Obama’s sparring partner in the practice debates, for going too soft on the boss; then the debate moderator for not exerting enough control. The Obama campaign’s plea that the commander in chief could find no shelter under Jim
Charles Krauthammer firstname.lastname@example.org
Lehrer’s desk did not exactly bolster Obama’s standing. Moreover, the moderator’s job is not to control the flow of argument, but to simply enforce an even time split. Lehrer did. In fact, Obama took more time than Romney — 4 1/2 minutes more — while actually speaking 500 fewer words. Romney knew what he thought and said it. Obama kept looking around hoping for the words to come to him. They didn’t. After the scapegoats came the excuses. 1. Obama had a bad night. He was off his game. Nonsense. This is Obama’s game. Great at delivering telepromptered addresses to adoring Germans and swooning students. But he’s not very good on his feet. His problem is that he doesn’t think so. He not only believes his own press, he believes his own
mythology. He actually said (in 2007): “I think that I’m a better speechwriter than my speechwriters. I know more about policies on any particular issue than my policy directors. And ... I’m a better political director than my political director.” Obama is a man of considerable intelligence. But he’s not half as transcendently smart as he thinks he is. He needs a servant in his chariot reminding him that he’s not an immortal. Of course, after the debate the entire Democratic Party told him he’s a dud. Wrong again. He’s neither lord nor commoner. He’s just an above-average politician who needs a very good night in one of the next two debates. 2. He was weighed down by the burdens of office. Ah yes, the burdens of office. Like going on “The View” while meeting with not a single foreign leader at the U.N. Like flying to a Vegas campaign rally the day after a U.S. consulate is sacked and the ambassador murdered. Like rushing off to New York for a night with Jay-Z and Beyonce. Rocky Mountain altitude is a better excuse than that.
(Thank you, Al Gore.) 3. Reductionism. Stephanie Cutter and David Axelrod both said (amazing coincidence) that Romney won on “style points.” So, the most charismatic politician since Pierre Elliot Trudeau was beaten by an android — on style? I concede that Obama’s reaction shots were awful. But he lost on radio too. And in print. Read the transcript. This wasn’t about appearances. Romney didn’t win on style. He won on an avalanche of substance, on a complete takedown of six months of Obama portraying Romney as enemy of the middle class, friend and footman of the rich. That was the heart of the Obama campaign. After all, with crushing debt, chronically high unemployment and the worst economic recovery since World War II, Obama can’t run on stewardship. Nor on the future. He has no serious agenda. Nothing on entitlements, nothing on tax reform, nothing on debt, nothing on the fiscal cliff. So when Romney completely deflated that six-month “kill Romney” strategy — by looking reasonable, responsible, authori-
tative in demonstrating how his policies would help the middle class by stimulating economic growth — what did Obama have left? Big Bird. The stupidest ad in memory. Has any president ever run an ad so small and trivial? After an unprecedented shellacking in a debate about very large issues, this is his response? The Middle East is ablaze, the country drowning in debt, the fiscal cliff looming — and Obama’s great pitch is that only he can save the $130 million enterprise that is the Sesame Workshop? An inspiring second-term agenda: subsidies for Big Bird and free contraceptives for Sandra Fluke. Obama has two debates to come up with something better. If he can’t, he will double down on his “Romney the menace” line. It might still work. But a word of advice: Your administration having prevaricated unceasingly — and scandalously — about the massacre in Benghazi, I’d be cautious about the “he’s a liar” line of attack. — Charles Krauthammer is a columnist for the Washington Post Writers Group.
Job spin To the editor: We were recently greeted with the information that the jobless rate has dropped below the 8 percent level. To most citizens who would wish that this improvement would continue, this is great news. But what do we hear from the political machine? Rush Limbaugh has claimed that the “regime” (as he calls the current administration) has manipulated the numbers. Other “conservative” voices have also dismissed this news as false, fraudulent and otherwise unsatisfactory to their drumbeat that the current president has “failed.” We the citizens want a government that is engaged in making our lives more livable, and a significant part of this is the availability of jobs and the decrease of unemployment. Fabricating lines of attack against the current administration is not what we want to hear. So, I ask, what is it going to be, Republicans? Is it going to be my way or the highway? Is the glass half full or half empty? Is this good news for the country? Or is it just a reduction in the size of the hammer you need to continue pounding on the current administration? I am listening right now to Gov. Romney trashing this positive news that we have received.
Americans are concerned that whoever is in office is in favor of good unemployment reduction news and not real impressed with those who would spin it to their political advantage. Fred Whitehead Jr., Lawrence
Policy a burden To the editor: I applaud the success of both high schools this football season and Bob Lisher deserves the credit in the Oct. 10 JournalWorld story. I think, however, that it is coming with a cost that most people won’t see. I am unaware of the LHS policy, but at Free State players have been told that if they do not attend all of the summer conditioning program (as in not a recognized part of the school district’s program), they will be not eligible to play all or part of the following season. This has put a burden on several boys. This policy prevents them from participating in other life-changing activities. I am an assistant Scoutmaster with one of the Boy Scout troops in town. Next summer over 30 boys have the opportunity to attend Philmont High Adventure Base in New Mexico. They will spend two weeks hiking in the mountains and participating in a wide vari-
OLD HOME TOWN ety of activities, including rock climbing and black powder shooting. During this time they will learn self-reliance and endurance (just the things a conditioning program targets). For most boys this is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity and it is being denied due to an overly restrictive view. High school should be about opening doors and new opportunities, not shutting out new experiences. Brian Van Schmus, Lawrence
Beautiful park To the editor: I want to thank the city of Lawrence for the dog park out by Clinton Lake. This is simply a beautiful park, and I take my two dogs to the park three to four times a week. We have our routine, walking through the fields, into the woods along shady, forested paths, eventually winding around by the river. I’ve gone as early as 6 a.m. in order to see the blue heron that fishes at a certain point in the river. This week the city poured concrete, which will provide a cleaner place to get water. I know everyone who visits (about a hundred people and dogs this evening) appreciates the quality park. Thank you! Susan Younger, Lawrence
What the Lawrence Journal-World stands for
THE WORLD COMPANY
From the Lawrence Daily JournalWorld for Oct. 13, 1912: YEARS “The supporters AGO of the Bull Moose IN 1912 movement who are students at the University met yesterday and formed an organization to push the interests of their party in the coming campaign. The meeting was held at the Phi Delt house and there were about thirty in attendance. On account of the prominence of the equal suffrage plank in the Progressive party’s platform it was decided to admit the women of the University to membership in the new club. The name of the new organization is Equal Suffrage Organization of Bull Moosers of the University of Kansas.... William Allen White was elected an honorary charter member and will address the club soon.” “Plina Strode, Rosie Moore, George Peters, John McIntyre and George Brannon were in police court this morning charged with being drunk. They were all assessed the regulation $6.50 with the exception of McIntyre, who was given an $8.50 dose.”

A banner day
Tom Keegan firstname.lastname@example.org
Lions making big plays routine Neither play looked as if it would end in a touchdown. Too many defenders blocked Erick Mayo’s path. The pass to Drake Hofer on the left side of the end zone was too well defended. Watching seniors Hofer and Mayo connect with classmate Brad Strauss, the state’s best quarterback, on so many big plays over the past couple of seasons took the shock value out of the plays but made them no less impressive. Mayo’s second gear was too fast, Hofer’s leaping ability too strong and his hands too sure, to keep them from scoring a pair of huge thirdquarter touchdowns that helped LHS celebrate senior night with a 46-26 victory against Leavenworth. The touchdowns turned a 22-12 score into 34-12. Mayo caught the pass near the left sideline, and when Hofer glanced his way, he didn’t like what he saw. “I turned away and thought he was going down,” Hofer said. “I looked back up, and he’s in the end zone.” Mayo turned his jets on and made it happen that quickly. “I saw everybody on the left side, so I knew I was going to have to cut back if I was going to score,” Mayo said of his 33-yard

Final Four flag highlights Jayhawks’ Late Night By Gary Bedore email@example.com
It was not an actor or a rapper but a banner that stole the show at the 28th annual Late Night in the Phog on Friday night in jam-packed Allen Fieldhouse. A 9:14 p.m. unveiling of KU’s 2012 Final Four flag, located in the rafters just north of the center videoboard, had 16,300 fans stomping their feet in a
rumble that rivaled the 2008 Late Night when the NCAA title banner was unfurled. “I thought it was pretty cool. To do the ‘Dream On’ video that long (prior to banner unveiling) and be able to highlight that kind of stuff ... I think that’s pretty nice,” said KU coach Bill Self, who was thoroughly impressed with the fans’ reaction throughout the three-hour, 15-minute show.
“The biggest highlight of the night was the crowd. That you could turn away people to watch that practice, I think, is pretty cool. People can talk about their respective schools and how good they’ve got it. Nobody’s got it as good as we do right here in Lawrence, Kansas,” Self added. KU officials indicated that 200 to 300 fans had to be turned away after the arena
was deemed filled to capacity. It was the first time in several years some fans were denied entry. The fans on hand were treated to a show with more of a local flavor than recent years. There was no Rob Riggle or Victor Ortiz to perform like last year, leaving a dance number by KU’s seniors as this year’s highlight. Please see LATE NIGHT, page 3B

Free State, Lawrence run away with district openers Firebirds floor Wyandotte, 49-6
Lions rushers slam Leavenworth
By Tom Witherspoon
By Benton Smith
After a 49-6 district-opening victory over Kansas City (Kan.) Wyandotte Friday night at Free State Stadium, in which Free State led 42-0 at halftime, the Firebirds sang the alma mater with the few remaining fans who stuck out the halftime drizzle and formality of the second half, then took a knee in front of coach Bob Lisher, who delivered a message directly on point. First, Free State won the game. Second, the entire roster got some valuable game experience. Third, next week’s game at Leavenworth will be much more difficult.

Leavenworth on Friday at Lawrence High.
Game-planning to face Lawrence High’s football team just got even harder. Opponents know going into a game with the Lions that senior quarterback Brad Strauss and his stable of play-making receivers can be unstoppable at times. After senior running back Tyrone Jenkins returned to the starting lineup Friday in a 46-26 district victory for the Lions against Leavenworth, there is one more player to give opposing defensive coordinators migraine headaches. Jenkins, who suffered a high-right-ankle sprain in mid-September, only carried the ball five times in his initial return to action last Please see LIONS, page 4B

Four players appeal bounty penalties NEW ORLEANS (AP) â€” All four players punished in the NFLâ€™s bounty investigation have filed appeals with the league. People familiar with the situation say the players have asked Commissioner Roger Goodell to remove himself as arbitrator because they do not believe he can be impartial. One of the people also says New Orleans linebacker Jonathan Vilma expects to play at Tampa Bay on Oct. 21 while his appeal is pending. The people
spoke to the Associated Press Friday on condition of anonymity because the appeals were filed as private documents with the league. NFL spokesman Greg Aiello confirmed Friday that all four players had filed appeals, but said the league would decline comment on the substance of those documents. This marks the second round of appeals by the players. About a month ago, a threemember appeal panel created
by the NFLâ€™s collective bargaining agreement vacated initial disciplinary rulings handed down by Goodell. Then Tuesday, the commissioner upheld his initial suspensions of Vilma and Saints defensive end Will Smith, and revised his suspensions of Cleveland linebacker and former Saint Scott Fujita and free agent defensive lineman Anthony Hargrove. Vilma has been on the Saintsâ€™ physically unable to perform list while continuing his come-
back from offseason surgery on his left knee, but may be activated after the first six weeks of the regular season. Goodell said Vilma could be paid for his time on New Orleansâ€™ PUP list. New Orleans has a bye this week, then the Saints could activate Vilma next week, if he is healthy enough to play. When Vilma was first placed on the PUP list, Saints interim coach Aaron Kromer said the goal was to have Vilma back in the lineup by Week 7.

TCU defense gets big test in Big 12

By Gil LeBretwon Fort Worth Star-Telegram
The forecast for TCU in Waco tonight: rain. Itâ€™s going to be raining passes. Hail stones will be the size of footballs. Protection is advised. The way that Horned Frogs coach Gary Patterson sees it, â€œEverybody is doing a great job of fast-break basketball right now.â€? A chronic TV game watcher, Patterson has seen the defensive destruction that this seasonâ€™s college football offenses have wrought. West Virginia 70, Baylor 63. Texas 41, Oklahoma State 36. West Virginia 48, Texas 45. Baylor 59 points versus an SMU team against which TCU struggled to score 24. â€œIt keeps you up nights,â€? said Patterson, whose game has always been stingy, gamedominating defense. Last yearâ€™s game against the Baylor Bears in Waco was like a five-alarm fire for the Frogsâ€™ proud defense. Not even three minutes into the game, the Bears scored on a 40-yard pass by wide receiver Kendall Wright to wide receiver Terrance Williams. Not to be outdone, quarterback Robert Griffin III himself threw five more touchdown passes and Baylor finished with 564 yards of offense. Griffinâ€™s scoring passes included touchdowns of 35, 28, 14, 64 and 42 yards. He didnâ€™t win the Heisman Trophy that night, but RGIII loudly announced that he was in the neighborhood. Maybe it was Mike Leach, whose pass-happy offenses blew through West Texas like a dust storm. Maybe itâ€™s been those summer seven-on-seven leagues. Doesnâ€™t anybody play defense anymore? Oklahoma does, but weâ€™ll have a better clue of how much after the Sooners try to stop the Longhorns today. And Kansas State, with 73-year-old Bill Snyder at the coaching reins, still has hitched its wagon to a power, defense-first philosophy. Pattersonâ€™s foundation remains defense. Even in a new conference in which scoreboards are having brownouts, even at his new leagueâ€™s media day where he was surrounded by head coaches who like to average 50, Patterson held his ground. â€œLike I said before the season,â€? Patterson reminded, â€œsomehow within your scheme youâ€™ve got to get to where you make these offenses settle for field goals.â€? Last weekend in Gainesville, the Florida Gators and LSU Tigers rammed heads in a 14-6 throwback affair. Boring? Not if you live in Florida. â€œThereâ€™s a reason why there are low-scoring games in the SEC,â€? Patterson said. â€œItâ€™s because, I think, the athletic ability of the defenses can match the athletic ability of the offenses. â€œI think there are good players on defense in the Big 12 right now, but there seem to be more on offense.â€?

THE UNITED STATESâ€™ EDDIE JOHNSON (18) CELEBRATES after scoring against Antigua and Barbuda. The U.S. won the World Cup qualifying soccer match, 2-1, on Friday in St. Johnâ€™s, Antigua.
U.S. wins World Cup qualifying match, 2-1 ST. JOHNâ€™S, ANTIGUA â€” Eddie Johnson rewarded his coachâ€™s faith in him â€” twice. In his first game back with the U.S. national team, Johnson scored twice Friday night, including the winning goal in second-half injury time, lifting the United States to the verge of advancing in World Cup qualifying with a nervous 2-1 victory over Antigua and Barbuda. If the Americans beat Guatemala on Tuesday night in Kansas City, Kan., they will move into the final round of CONCACAF qualifying for the 2014 World Cup in Brazil. The U.S. has 10 points; Guatemala and Jamaica each have seven and were playing each other in a late game in Guatemala. Johnson connected on headers in the 20th minute and then in the dying moments in his first game for the U.S. team in two years. He was added to the squad by coach Jurgen Klinsmann, apparently replacing the disappointing Jozy Altidore, and the move paid off.
Ex-OSU player Williams free STILLWATER, OKLA. â€” Ex-Oklahoma State basketball player Darrell Williams was freed Friday after a judge gave him a suspended sentence in a sexual-assault case in which Williams insisted he was innocent. Williams, 23, had been jailed since he was convicted in July of groping two women and reaching inside their pants without their consent at a party in December 2010. He maintained he was the victim of misidentification â€” several of the 80 people at the party were wearing Oklahoma State University warmup clothes â€” and his supporters claimed he was a victim of racial bias. Williams is black; his accusers are white. The jury in predominantly white Payne County included 11 white people and one of Asian descent. Williams enrolled at OSU after his brother was shot to death on Chicagoâ€™s South Side in 2009. His family had hoped the move would keep him
out of danger, and Williams made the most of his time, leading the Cowboys in rebounding and averaging more than 7 points a game in 2010. Coach Travis Ford suspended Williams from the team in February 2011 but testified at his trial that he believed he was innocent. Ford and several players attended the sentencing but did not speak to reporters.
Rose wins World Final BELEK, TURKEY â€” Justin Rose beat European Ryder Cup teammate Lee Westwood by a stroke Friday to win the eight-player World Golf Final and earn a career-best $1.5 million.
Mallinger up by four at Frys SAN MARTIN, CALIF. â€” John Mallinger opened a four-stroke lead in the Frys.com Open, making an eagle and two birdies on the final four holes for a 9-under 62. Former Kansas University golfer Gary Woodland had a second-round 72 and was at 4 under for the tournament, 10 shots off the lead.
Forsman tops Greater Hickory CONOVER, N.C. â€” Dan Forsman shot a 7-under 65 to take a one-stroke lead over Fred Funk, David Frost and Larry Mize after the first round of the Greater Hickory Classic.
Logano nets Nationwide victory CONCORD, N.C. â€” Joey Logano raced to his eighth Nationwide Series victory of the year Friday night, passing Brad Keselowski with eight laps to go after taking on two tires and a splash of gas. Logano led 62 laps en route to his 17th career victory and first at Charlotte Motor Speedway. He has made 18 series starts this season.

Elijah Johnson, Travis Releford , Kevin Young and Jeff Withey wore powder blue sports jackets, white shirts, black bow ties and sunglasses in dancing to viral internet hit “Gangnam Style” by artist PSY. “The dancing obviously was real fun, a tradition,” Withey said. “I think they give us the dance so late (to rehearse) so it looks so bad,” Johnson added with a smile. KU’s freshmen players performed a dance number in which they wore all black outfits, with black KU caps worn backward. The number ended with Perry Ellis and Zach Peters picking up walk-on Tyler Self and throwing him into the air in a gymnasticslike dismount. The second-year players and juniors, who wore white jerseys, ended their dance number when Naadir Tharpe removed a shoe and fired it to Niko Roberts who caught it and used it as a phone. “I thought it was hilarious personally,” Self stated, making a face to show he was joking. “I

I thought all of them did fine.” He said he especially enjoyed a video of fans celebrating during games last season and postseason. “We never get to see that stuff, how the fans get into it at the local bars. To me that was cool,” Self said. “If I’m a recruit, that
to me was the most impressive thing. I thought it was all good.” The players concluded the night with a 20-minute intrasquad scrimmage. Seniors Johnson and Withey scored 11 and 10 points respectively to pace the Crimson team to a 36-28 victory over the Blue squad. Senior Young had nine points, while red-shirt freshmen Ben McLemore and Jamari Traylor had six points each for the Blue team. Withey had seven rebounds and Young four. “Pretty athletic,” Self said of what he thought of the action. “We didn’t shoot it well (Crimson team 53.6 percent; Blue team 41.4). I didn’t anticipate we would. It was fine. We’ll never watch the video or anything. It’s not real ball. The guys did fine.” As far as the freshmen ... “I think they were nervous,” Self said. “Ben (McLemore, 3-8 shooting) is so nervous. I think it’s good to get it out of their system. Hopefully when we play the first exhibition game it’ll be a more relaxed feel. They’ve never been in front of a crowd like that. To do that when they feel they are on the stage ... it looks easy from the cheap seats, but it’s a little harder than people think.”

KU football coach Charlie Weis spoke to the fans. His Jayhawks will play host to Oklahoma State at 2:30 p.m. today in Memorial Stadium. “It’s supposed to be inclement weather, and I hope it is. I hope it pours, the wind is blowing, and I hope it’s a miserable day for Oklahoma State,” Weis said to the roar of the fans. “Tomorrow will be a challenge.

Self will host a panel discussion with a group that includes ESPN’s Jay Bilas and the Sporting News’ Mike DeCourcy at 6 p.m., Nov. 1, at Crown Toyota Pavilion in Lawrence. A question-andanswer session will follow the panel discussion. Proceeds from the event will benefit Self’s Assist Foundation programs.

About a minute into Friday’s Late Night scrimmage, Kansas University senior Carolyn Davis caught a pass in traffic, turned, and bounced in a layup off the glass. “It was just kind of a sigh of relief,” said Davis, who played for the first time in front of fans since tearing an anterior cruciate ligament last year. “I was like, ‘I still got it.’ My leg might be a little bit off, but I still got it.” Davis’ production was the highlight for KU women, as her game-high six points on 3-for-4 shooting helped the Crimson team to a 21-12 victory over the Blue in the 12-minute exhibition. The 6-foot-3 Houston native, who reported no pain afterward, had only been cleared to practice with teammates for about 10 days. KU coach Bonnie Henrickson even gave her the option to sit out Friday’s scrimmage. “It’s just fun for us to watch her play,” Henrickson said. “She’s looked good.” The ninth-year coach said her fears were calmed a bit during Davis’ first individual workout a few weeks ago, when the honorable mention All-American “made every shot and caught every ball.” “I said, ‘You know what, you just make it look so easy.’ She kind of smiled at me,” Henrickson said. “I said, ‘That’s what the great ones do.’” There were other highlights for Henrickson on Friday night, including the play of freshman guard Lamaria Cole, who showed speed, athleticism and aggressiveness off the

KU senior Monica Engelman, who went through a late-season slump last year, also made the first jumper of the game and finished with two rebounds and a steal. The scrimmage was interrupted briefly with 1:19 left when the Allen Fieldhouse lights dimmed after someone accidentally hit an incorrect button at the scorer’s table. After a short delay, the women resumed playing in semi-darkness. “I thought it was maybe for dramatic effect of something,” Davis said with a laugh. “Technical difficulties, I guess.”

week, serving as a backup to Jordan Brown. But the 6-foot, 205-pound senior got his first start since Sept. 14 in the Lions’ district opener at home and rushed for 107 yards and two touchdowns on 17 carries. After the Lions (6-1) got to 1-0 in District 1, Jenkins said he knew this week he had to get back to his old workload. “There’s still a little pain in it (the ankle), but I just figured it’s almost the playoffs, it’s time for me to push it,” Jenkins said. “This is the time to grow up if we really want to be state champions.” The Lions’ coaches switched Jenkins and Brown in and out of the lineup to keep the Pioneers (3-4) off balance. With Lawrence needing to run out the clock with a double-digit, secondhalf lead, Brown finished with 11 carries, 40 yards
and sealed the alreadysure victory with an eightyard rushing touchdown with 35 seconds left in the fourth quarter. Jenkins gave credit to the Lions’ stellar air attack — Strauss completed passes to six targets, finishing with 179 passing yards and two scores. “Our wide receivers are great, and once we get them the ball, they’ve got to back off us, and that’s when me and JB (Brown) step in,” Jenkins said. “We can run it, and there’s nothing they can do to stop it. Brad’s a threat, as well.” Indeed, Strauss rushed 16 times for 87 yards and two touchdowns, and Lawrence finished with 275 rushing yards, compared to Leavenworth’s 71 on a rainy night. Strauss praised Jenkins for having great hands — he recovered a Pioneers onside kick in the fourth quarter with Lawrence leading 40-26 with 5:34 left — and strength. “He’s tough to bring down,” Strauss said. “After the first few plays when
the defenders tackle him, I’m sure they don’t want to deal with him much the rest of the game.” The game didn’t start off great for Lawrence, which hadn’t trailed since its season-opening loss to Shawnee Mission West. The Lions were down 12-8 early in the second quarter before putting together a 74-yard TD drive behind two fourth-down conversions. Strauss, who punts for Lawrence when he’s not throwing or running, had his punt blocked on a fourth-and-nine at the Lions’ 27-yard line. But instead of giving the Pioneers great field position, Strauss raced to the loose ball, scooped it up and ran 10 yards down the right sideline for a first down. Strauss accounted for 57 total yards on the drive, including an eight-yard run on another fourth down and a 16-yard TD that led to a 16-12 Lions lead. Next up for Lawrence in District 1 is a trip to Kansas City, Kan., Wyandotte, which lost 49-6 at Free State on Friday.

touchdown. “And then I just cut back and beat the defenders to the end zone.” Said LHS coach Dirk Wedd: “If it was twohand touch they wouldn’t have had him. He’s very elusive. He’s got wiggles. Will Thompson’s the same way. You put those guys along with Brad in space, it’s hard to bring them down.” Mayo showed the same skills on a 27-yard return after picking up a kicked football that was bouncing end over end on the turf, the sort of action that usually makes returners step out of the way. Mayo turned it into a big play and also had four receptions for 62 yards. Hofer had four receptions for 49 yards, numbers that would look much better if degree-ofdifficulty catches merited bonus yards. Named after his great grandfather, Bruce Drake, former quarterback, All-American basketball player and basketball coach at Oklahoma, Hofer did his name proud again. A 6-footer, Hofer looked half a foot taller on his 19-yard touchdown reception, pulling down a jump ball. “To be perfectly honest, I called that play because I thought they owed us a pass-interference call,” Wedd said. “I wanted the ball in the end zone because it was fourth and a mile. We called all-go, and told Brad to throw it up to one of them. Drake made a great catch.” Mayo said he sees Hofer make that catch routinely at practice. “I knew he was going to come down with it,” Mayo said. Said Hofer: “Brad put it right where I wanted it. We do a drill called ‘Randy Moss,’ and we go up over the defensive back and grab it from him.” The members of this senior class bring diverse talents and share one quality: They all have a blast playing football together.

like, is not the slouch it used to be. Now coached by former St. Thomas Aquinas coach Kevin Kopecky, Leavenworth, the former Sunflower League cellar dweller, has a 3-4 record, and all three wins came in stiff league play. Wyandotte, however, offered little resistance to Free State, which was playing its first game of the season outside the league. “Our guys came out and played and did what they had to do be successful tonight,” said Lisher. “We were very concerned all week with Wyandotte’s offense and things they were doing defensively, but our guys came out and took care of business, and the game kind of went as we hoped it would go.” Free State gained 309 yards of offense in the first half, led by Kyle McFarland’s 106 passing yards, including a 70-yard touchdown pass to Sam Hearnen, and T.J. Cobbs’ 80 rushing yards. Wyandotte did not move the ball and suffered in the punting game, and Free State used
short field position on its first three scoring drives of 7, 36 and 47 yards to lead 28-0 at the end of the first quarter. After the win, Lisher reminded his team that Leavenworth stayed close to the Firebirds in last season’s meeting, a 23-12 Free State win in which the margin was just 16-12 in the final minutes. Leavenworth went on to earn a berth in the state playoffs last season for the first time since 1980. Lisher said the coaching staff would go to work right away to prepare for the Pioneers. “We don’t know a whole lot about Leavenworth yet,” he said. “They’ve been playing people tough, and they’ve been winning some games, and they’ve got a lot of people back from last year.” It was easy to look ahead to the next game after a win over Wyandotte that was never in doubt and dragged along at times, as Wyandotte insisted on sticking to its passing game led by quarterback Dimonic McKinzy, reportedly a Division I recruit. McKinzy threw the ball 32 times, connecting eight times for 102 yards. Free State repeatedly flushed
him out of the pocket to the flat, usually forcing the right-hander to force a throw against his body to the sideline. “We won up front,” Lisher said. “Defensively, we were swarming to the football and had good coverage and had good pressure all night long, and that’s what you’ve got to do against a good, athletic team like Wyandotte. “(On offense) we could throw the ball when we wanted to, and we could run.” Cobbs rushed 15 times for 125 yards, and Demarko Bobo ran nine times for 81 yards. Seven different players rushed the football for 284 yards. There was one glaring weakness in Free State’s overwhelming win. Free State had seven firsthalf penalties totalling 57 yards. The No. 1 Firebirds might have to do better in that category next week against Leavenworth if they want the following week’s showdown with Lawrence High to be for the outright district title. “Coach Lisher told us that we have to get that (No. 1 ranking) out of our heads, and continue to keep playing better and better,” Cobbs said.

Success driving FSHS, LHS gymnastics year, LHS has finished second to the Firebirds at two events. “It’d be awesome to finish ahead of them,” Lynch said, “but I don’t think that’s gonna happen.” McMurray said there is no secret to the Firebirds’ success. “They’ve been in club gymnastics since they were 5 (years old),” the coach said. “It’s not a sport you can pick up, like basketball or softball, your freshman year.” Zaitz said the Firebirds’ depth also sets them apart from other programs. “A lot of the girls from the other schools, I competed against for USAG club gymnastics, and I know them from that,” Zaitz said. “But all the other girls (on opposing teams) have just started in high school.” However, Lynch has seen what else makes Free State’s gymnasts some of

Zaitz is expected to be back in the lineup by then, but McMurray said the gymnasts will have to stay sharp as the season nears its end. “We could have two falls here, two falls there, and that could be the difference between first and second,” the coach said. Both Free State and Lawrence will compete today at Shawnee Mission East for the Sunflower League championship.

Lynch, one of Lawrence’s two returning gymnasts, along with junior Allison Williams, said the Lions — junior Jessie Abernathy, sophomores Heather Wisbey and Sydney Theilen, and freshman Ashley Ammann — try to add new wrinkles to their routines and have the Firebirds help them out at practices. It’s pretty common, McMurray added, for a Lion to be on one beam with a Firebird on the beam next to her as they converse and work on routines.

The concept of a perfect 10 no longer exists in gymnastics. But the gymnasts at Free State High know something about a perfect five. Every time the Firebirds have had their entire lineup available to compete this season, they have finished in first place. Their latest No. 1 showing came last weekend at the Newton Invitational. They were 5-for-5 on the season before finishing fractions of a point behind host Olathe East at its quad on Thursday night and settling for second after senior Jackie Zaitz was injured in warm-ups and couldn’t compete. The Firebirds are on pace to replicate the success they experienced last season, which ended with their capturing the 2011 Class 6A state champion-

Seniors Zaitz, Annie Soderberg and Brooke Leslie, junior Hannah Moran, and sophomores Grace Bartle, Carrie Howland and Haley Johnson have thrived under firstyear coach Jessica McMurray. Soderberg said the Firebirds are even better than they were at this time a year ago, because they know each other’s strengths and what events require the most attention. “Now we’re just adding on new skills and more difficulty,” Soderberg said.

TALE OF THE TAPE
When Kansas has the ball Kansas rush offense vs. Oklahoma State rush defense Last week, the Jayhawks proved they could keep their running game going against a Top 10 team in their loss at Kansas State. Although the Jayhawks were punished on the scoreboard, the running game — led by James Sims’ 115yard day — produced 175 of the Jayhawks’ 388 total yards, and that was with leading rusher Tony Pierson missing the final three quarters because of injury. Pierson is expected to play this weekend, and, even though the Cowboys have given up an average of just 121 yards per game (fifth in the Big 12 and 36th nationally), they have been hit for big nights on the ground in losses to Arizona and Texas. Edge: Push.

THOUGH TALENTED, OKLAHOMA STATE QUARTERBACKS J.W. WALSH (No. 4 above, against Texas on Sept. 29 in Stillwater, Okla.) and Wes Lunt (below, against Savannah State, Sept. 1 in Stillwater) lack experience, a fact Kansas University hopes to exploit today.
Kansas hopes to take advantage of youth at QB By Matt Tait firstname.lastname@example.org
Although Kansas University’s football team does not know for sure which Oklahoma State quarterback it will face at 2:30 today in Memorial Stadium, the Jayhawks know one thing — whichever Cowboy starts will be awfully inexperienced. For a defense that features mostly juniors, seniors and even a couple of fifth-year guys in its starting lineup, the Jayhawks see this as a potential advantage in a game in which they figure to have only a few. “Anytime you’re playing a person that’s not as experienced as a senior or a junior, it can help,” KU senior linebacker Tunde Bakare said. “Experience plays a role in each and every game.” If it’s Wes Lunt the Cowboys turn to, they’ll be counting on a true freshman who has played in three college games, finished just one and played six plays in the Cowboys’ last two games combined. The 6-foot-4, 211-pound rookie from Rochester, Ill., earned OSU’s starting QB job this summer largely because of his big frame and even bigger arm. Lunt has completed 51 of 75 passes (68 percent) for 588 yards, four touchdowns and three interceptions. If it’s the 6-2, 205-pound
J.W Walsh the Cowboys hand the ball to, they’ll be counting on a red-shirt freshman who played in relief for two games and started their most recent game, a home loss to Texas two weeks ago. Walsh has completed 52 of 78 passes (67 percent) for 797 yards, eight touchdowns and two interceptions. He also owns the rushing advantage over Lunt, having rushed for 159 yards and one TD, while Lunt has yet to attempt a run. “Both quarterbacks present a little bit different problem,” KU defensive coordinator Dave Campo said. “Walsh is a winner-type guy who throws OK and runs OK, and he makes things happen because he knows how to play football. The other guy,
Kansas pass offense vs. Oklahoma State pass defense KU quarterback Dayne Crist looked much more comfortable and effective in the passing game during last week’s first half after which the Jayhawks trailed by just seven points. Then the wheels fell off in the second half as Crist was sacked and/or pressured nearly every other time he dropped back and could not find any rhythm with any of his receivers. Sophomore wideout Andrew Turzilli continued to take steps forward against the Wildcats, finishing with 67 yards on five receptions. The Cowboys are slightly more vulnerable through the air than a lot of teams KU will face (242 yards per game, seventh in the Big 12 and 77th nationally), but until KU shows for four quarters the kind of consistency it received in last week’s first half, it’s going to be tough to say the Jayhawks own the advantage in this category. Edge: Oklahoma State.
“Once you hit somebody, you definitely can tell,” he said. “And that can change the game.” Regardless of which tactics the Jayhawks resort to, the plan is to keep things clean even if they would not divulge what they had in mind. “There’s a lot that goes on When Oklahoma State out there on the field, man,” Williams said. has the ball “Within the rules, within the rules,” added Bakare.

Special teams A big-time place kicker, whom Weis called maybe the best player at his position in the nation, leads the Cowboys’ ultra-talented special-teams unit. Quinn Sharp is one of the top punters and place kickers in the country and also has become quite a weapon on kickoffs. Throw in the fact that OSU features multiple dynamic return guys and 26 yards per kickoff return and 10.5 yards per punt return, and it’s a tough match-up for the Jayhawks, who have struggled in kick-coverage situations this season. Add to that the fact that the Jayhawks are reeling in the kicking game, with place kicker Ron Doherty having hit just five of 10 field goal tries this season (including a miss on a 24-yard attempt last week), and it’s clear where the advantage lies here.

Yanks top O’s, reach ALCS NEW YORK (AP) — Yankees-Orioles. Playoffs. Disputed home run to right field. Yankees win. Sound familiar? CC Sabathia and his New York teammates saw Nate McLouth’s long drive called foul by the slimmest of margins — hello, Jeffrey Maier — and then hung on to beat Baltimore, 3-1, Friday in the deciding Game 5 of the AL division series. With Alex Rodriguez benched, the Yankees advanced to the AL championship series against the Detroit Tigers, starting tonight in the Bronx. “It is still a long way to go,” Sabathia said. “I still got hopefully three or four more starts. So the job is not done yet.” Sabathia pitched a fourhitter, wriggling out of a bases-loaded jam in the eighth inning. It was his first complete game in 17 postseason starts and the first for the Yankees since Roger Clemens did it in 2000. Yet it was another piece of history that this game evoked. The Orioles were in a foul mood, stung on a close play in right that echoed what happened across the street at the old Yankee Stadium in the 1996 AL championship opener, on a fly ball that still stirs emotions in Baltimore. This time, with the Orioles trailing 1-0 in the sixth, McLouth sent a 3-1 pitch deep down the rightfield line. Eyes turned to right-field umpire Fieldin Culbreth, who demonstrably waved foul with both arms. Orioles manager Buck Showalter came out to ask for a video review, and most of the umpiring crew went down a tunnel to examine the images. When they ran back onto the field about two minutes later, they didn’t make any signal — meaning the original call stood.

McLouth struck out on the next pitch, ending the inning. “I saw it go to the right of the pole,” Culbreth said. “There is netting there, and it didn’t touch the netting. It did not change direction,” he added, indicating he did not think the ball grazed the pole. Added crew chief Brian Gorman: “We saw the same thing on the replay. There was no evidence to overturn the decision.” Showalter? Not sure. “I couldn’t tell. It was real close,” he said. McLouth wondered, too, what the umps would decide. “It started off fair, and it was just hooking a little bit. I thought it was foul just in game speed,” McLouth said. “A couple of people mentioned it might’ve ticked the pole, but he was way closer than I was, and I was satisfied after they went down and looked at the replay that it was foul.” Steven Ellis, a fan from the Broad Channel section of Queens, caught the ball with his Yankee cap in the second deck. “It was foul all the way, never hit the pole,” he said. Ada Cruz, sitting behind Ellis, added: “No way, no way. I watched it, and he caught it.”
NATIONAL LEAGUE PLAYOFFS
Cardinals rally past Nationals WASHINGTON (AP) — Doesn’t matter how bad things look for the St. Louis Cardinals. Trailing by a bunch, down to their last strike, they simply stay calm and do what it takes to win. Erasing an early sixrun hole in Game 5 slowly but surely, the defending World Series champion Cardinals got a tying two-out, two-run single from Daniel Descalso and a go-ahead two-run single from Pete Kozma in the ninth inning and came all the way back to beat the Washington Nationals, 9-7, Friday night and win their NL division series. It was the largest comeback ever in a winnertake-all postseason game, according to STATS LLC. No other club in this sort of ultimate pressure situation had come back from more than four down. First-year manager Mike Matheny and the wild-card Cardinals, the last team to clinch a playoff spot this year, will open the NL championship series at San Francisco on Sunday. Down 7-5 with two outs in the ninth against Nationals closer Drew Storen, the Cardinals twice were a strike away from losing. But Storen walked both of those batters, Yadier Molina and David Freese, setting the stage for the unheralded Descalso and Kozma —

Nationals manager Davey Johnson even called the rookie “Cosmos” before Game 4 — to come through. When Cardinals closer Jason Motte got Ryan Zimmerman to pop out to second base a half-hour past midnight, the Cardinals streamed from the visiting dugout for a rather muted celebration, all in all. Over the past two years, St. Louis is 6-0 when facing elimination.

Don’t be insulted if Cathy Hoag leaves your party early or doesn’t attend. The 50-year-old Olathe, Kan., woman is not rude or antisocial. She just doesn’t like small talk — or loud talk. It intimidates her and saps her strength. She needs solitude to rest and recharge. Many people don’t understand introverts like her, she says. They ridicule and underestimate them. But a chorus of voices is out to change that view, extolling the virtues of introverts. The most visible: the new movie “The Perks of Being a Wallflower,” a coming-of-age drama about an introverted, misfit high school freshman who surprises a new group of friends with his sensitivity and capacity to listen. It’s based on Stephen Chbosky’s best-selling novel, which has struck a chord with introverts — and anyone who has ever felt like an outsider. A bevy of advice books also champion the introvert, including Marti Olsen Laney’s “The Introvert Advantage: How to Thrive in an Extrovert World” and Susan Cain’s “Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can’t Stop Talking.” And a popular Facebook post provides instructions on “How to Care for Introverts.” The experts point to famous introverts, many of whom have used their introverted nature to change the world: Albert Einstein, Bill Gates, Mohandas Gandhi, Rosa Parks and Mother Teresa. Hoag feels the benefits to her introversion too. She’s smart and sensitive, a deep thinker and persistent in solving problems. She, too, is a good listener. And she can talk. “I’d like extroverted people to know that we’re not stupid or unintelligent because we don’t talk all the time,” she said. “I’ll
talk when I have some- gredient of creativity, and thing to say.” introverts crave solitude, and also tend to be very Born that way persistent.

The groom earned a Bachelor of Arts in Economics and Political Science from Middlebury College. He is employed by EXSIF Worldwide in Shanghai. After a honeymoon trip to Bali, the couple resides in Shanghai, China.
There are perks to being an introvert McClatchy Newspapers
Zachary and Estrella Elmore
Leadership: “In my book I profiled some of the great transformative leaders of the 20th century, including Rosa Parks, Eleanor Roosevelt and Gandhi, all three of whom are described as quiet and shy,” Cain said. “The psychologist Adam Grant at the Wharton School of Business did a study and found that introverted leaders often delivered better outcomes than extroverts do.” Sure, some introverts are who you’d expect them to be — bookkeepers, accountants, engineers, computer experts. Others are not so obvious. Cain says President Barack Obama is an introvert. So was Johnny Carson. Wouldn’t they be too shy? Remember, Cain said, there’s a difference between shyness and introversion. “Shyness is about the fear of social judgment,” Cain said. “Introverts might not have that fear at all.”

Dear Annie: In January, I finally married the woman of my dreams. “Julie” was sweet and kind, with lots of love to give. Things went well for a few weeks, but then everything changed. Julie has always had issues with depression. She’d be overwhelmed from time to time but always came to me for comfort. Suddenly, she didn’t want me near her when she was depressed. As hurt as I was, I gave her the space she wanted. It’s been several months now, and it seems as if Julie no longer needs me for anything. All affection has ceased, and though I ask her to join me in every activity, she refuses. After months of begging, she finally went for counseling. (I’ve been seeing a counselor myself.) It seemed to help her depression, but she still maintains a great deal of distance from me.
Marcy Sugar and Kathy Mitchell email@example.com
Worse, we are beginning to get heavily in debt and are in danger of losing our house, but she refuses to get a job or even help out around the house. She spends her time talking to friends, sleeping and watching videos. I am miserable. I love this woman, and I know these are all signs that she’s still fighting her depression, but how much is too much? She barely responds to me when I try to discuss it. I promised “in sickness and in health,” but I don’t know how much more I can
Shows go from cute to creepy “American Horror House” (8 p.m. Saturday, Syfy) revisits the haunted sorority house theme and adds creepy new touches: a recurrent child’s song, a flashback to bloody murder, a haunted violinist — actually, a haunted closet full of stringed instruments.

In addition to weekly dollops of adorableness, “Too Cute!” invites viewers to follow a 24-houra-day live Kitten Cam at animal. discovery.com/tv/too-cute-kittens/kitten-cam.

handle. — Wishing for Better Times Dear Wishing: If Julie handles her depression by spending money, you need to be supportive without being indulgent. This is an area that is difficult for her to control. Put her on a budget and limit her access to your joint account. Then contact the Depression and Bipolar Support Alliance (dbsalliance.org) at 1-800826-3632 for information. Julie must put some effort into this for the sake of your marriage. Dear Annie: My mom was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis 30 years ago. She was 42, active in her church, taught piano and was involved in our community. She always took the time to visit or call friends. By the time she was 49, she was in a nursing home. At first, her friends visited regularly. Now I’m the only one. Her sister and brother never come to see her.
Her friends rarely ask about her. I realize we are all busy, but it only takes a half-hour once a week to stop by and say hello. It would mean so much. I have told her friends that she would love to see them, but they make excuses, saying they can’t bear to see her this way or she won’t remember them. This breaks my heart. Mom is so wonderful and sweet. Even if she doesn’t recognize you, she enjoys the visit. Annie, there are so many people left alone in nursing homes. Please encourage your readers to reach out. A 15-minute visit can make a difference in someone’s life. And they might make a difference in yours, as well. — Washington Dear Washington: Bless you for inspiring our readers to visit a friend or family member in a nursing home. These visits can mean so much.

U.S. budget gap eclipses $1T again By Martin Crutsinger and Paul Wiseman Associated Press
WASHINGTON — The United States has now spent $1 trillion more than it’s taken in for four straight years. The Treasury Department confirmed Friday what was widely expected: The deficit for the just-ended 2012 budget year — the gap between the government’s tax revenue and its spending — totaled $1.1 trillion. Put simply, that’s how much the government had to borrow. It wasn’t quite as ugly as last year. Tax revenue rose 6.4 percent from 2011 to $2.45 trillion. And spending fell 1.7 percent to $3.5 trillion. As a result, the deficit shrank 16 percent, or $207 billion. A stronger economy meant more people had jobs and income that generated tax revenue. Corporations also contributed more to federal revenue than in 2011. The government spent less on Medicaid and on defense as U.S. military involvement in Iraq was winding down. Barack Obama’s presidency has coincided with four straight $1 trillionplus annual budget deficits — the first in history and an issue in an election campaign that ends in 3 1/2 weeks. When Obama took office in January 2009, the Congressional Budget Office forecast that the deficit that year would total $1.2 trillion. It ended up at a record $1.41 trillion. The increase was due in large part to the worst recession since the Great Depression. Tax revenue plummeted, and the government spent more on stimulus programs. Tax cuts enacted under President George W. Bush and military spending in Iraq and Afghanistan contributed to the deficits. “There is nothing like the number trillion to focus the mind,” said Maya MacGuineas, president of the Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget, which advocates budget discipline. “The fiscal situation is terrible. Changes will have to be made as quickly and carefully as possible.”

BUSINESS AT A GLANCE
Countries should not sacrifice growth for the sake of austerity, the head of the International Monetary Fund told global financial leaders Friday, urging that the pace of government debt reduction be tempered by spending to help get the unemployed back to work. Balancing those sometimes competing priorities is the central puzzle facing policymakers as the world economy slows further, even in dynamic Asia, IMF chief Christine Lagarde told finance leaders at the IMF and World Bank annual meeting in Tokyo. Lagarde said she was “desperately optimistic” on prospects for a global recovery, while warning against backsliding on reforms needed to prevent future financial crises. “The first priority, clearly, is to get beyond the crisis, and restore growth, especially to end the scourge of unemployment,” Lagarde said. Greece, Spain and other European countries laboring under massive debts have slashed spending and raised taxes, seeking to restore confidence in their public finances and qualify for emergency financing. The economies of financially healthier European countries, such as Germany and Finland, face a potential blow to growth if those troubled economies fail to get their financial houses in order.

Profits soar at 2 largest mortgage lenders By Christina Rexrode and Daniel Wagner Associated Press
NEW YORK — Is the mortgage market really back? The country’s two biggest mortgage lenders, Wells Fargo and JPMorgan Chase, reported Friday that a surge in home lending pushed them to record profits. JPMorgan CEO Jamie Dimon declared that the housing market “has turned the corner.” Wells Fargo CEO John Stumpf said that “every quarter, we have more confidence.” Wells said it issued $139 billion in mortgages from July through September, compared with $89 billion in the same period last year. JPMorgan wrote $47 billion in mortgages, compared with $37 billion last year. There were signs, though, that the boom isn’t as strong as it might seem. The large majority of mortgage lending was driven not by people buying new homes but by owners refinancing mortgages, which is less helpful to the housing market. The business was also propped up by government programs, like a federal initiative meant to encourage refinancing, and the Federal Reserve’s pledge to buy more mortgage-backed bonds. The banks’ mortgage units are also a magnet for legal disputes, with both banks facing new mortgage-related lawsuits just this month. And nobody knows how long the revenue gains will last.
“We don’t expect to count on the high margins and mortgage origination forever,” Dimon said in a call with financial analysts. “You’re going to have it next quarter, maybe for a couple of quarters after that, but it won’t last for that much longer.” Still, the numbers were eye-catching: Mortgage lending revenue jumped 56 percent at Wells and 29 percent at JPMorgan compared with a year ago, driving overall revenue gains at both banks. And it’s all against a backdrop of signs nationwide that the fractured housing market could be healing. A Federal Reserve survey earlier this week found that a stronger housing market helped economic growth in almost every part of the country. Home sales are up, prices are rising more consistently in most places, and builders are more confident. The executives didn’t suggest that one quarter of mortgage strength means the housing market is fixed. At both banks, about three-quarters of the mortgage-lending revenue was from refinancing. About 15 percent was from a government program, the Home Affordable Refinance Program. The Fed’s plan last month to buy mortgagebacked bonds is also likely to fuel the numbers. The plan is meant to keep interest rates low, which is supposed to encourage borrowing and refinancing. It can also help banks make a bigger profit when they sell mortgages to investors.
