Immigration experts criticize Kobach’s laws ———
But secretary of state says measures are successful By Scott Rothschild email@example.com
Immigration experts on Thursday criticized laws in Alabama and Arizona that were co-authored by Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach. But Kobach said the controversial anti-illegal immigration measures were working. “People are self-deporting,” Kobach said. “People are picking up and leaving.” But Benjamin Johnson, executive director of the American Immigration Council, said the Arizona and Alabama laws were resulting in police racial profiling.
People are selfdeporting. People are picking up and leaving.” — Secretary of State Kris Kobach Alberto Cardenas Jr., an immigration attorney from Houston, said having individual states adopt immigration laws was counterproductive to forming a rational federal law. Please see KOBACH, page 2A

It is not exactly the type of start city and county officials were hoping for when it comes to the partnership they formed with the state of Kansas to keep the Lawrence SRS office open. City and county leaders on Thursday reacted to news that Kansas Department of Social and Rehabilitation Services Secretary Robert Siedlecki Jr. didn’t request any money in his department’s upcoming budget to fund the operations of Lawrence’s SRS office.

Panel: Suspend ex-A.G. Kline’s law license for ‘pattern of misconduct’ By John Hanna Associated Press
TOPEKA — A professional ethics panel recommended Thursday that former Kansas Attorney General Phill Kline have his state law license suspended indefinitely over his conduct during criminal investigations of abortion providers, saying he was “motivated by dishonesty and selfishness.” The three-member panel
The three-member panel of the state Board for Discipline of Attorneys said Phill Kline repeatedly misled other officials or allowed subordinates to mislead others, including a Kansas City-area grand jury, to further investigations of abortion providers. of the state Board for Discipline of Attorneys said Kline repeatedly misled other officials or allowed subordinates

panel also said Kline made a false statement to the office investigating the misconduct claims against him and even attempted to mislead the panel itself as it considered his case. Kline has strongly disputed the allegations against him and called the complaint politically motivated. “I upheld my duty, upheld my oath of office and the integrity of my profession,” Kline said in a state-

The panel determined some allegations in a complaint against Kline didn’t represent violations of the
state’s rules for attorneys. Those included key criticisms of Kline and his subordinates over their handling of abortion patients’ private medical records. Yet the panel concluded Kline “engaged in a pattern of misconduct” while serving as Kansas attorney general in 2003-07 and as Johnson County district attorney for two years after he lost his bid for re-election to the state ofPlease see KLINE, page 2A

Aron Cromwell said of SRS officials. “If you don’t ask for it, you’ll never get it, obviously.” But local leaders said Siedlecki’s failure to seek state funding for the Lawrence office doesn’t constitute a breach in the agreement the city and the county made with SRS. That agreement — brokered this summer after it was announced the state would close the East 19th Street office — calls for the city and the county to provide to the state $450,000 over the next two years that will be used to pay for the expenses of the Lawrence office. In exchange for the payment, the state essentially agreed that it would not close the Lawrence office during the next two years, and that after July 1, 2013, that SRS secretary would make a “good faith” effort to obtain adequate appropriations from the state Legislature. “They are under no obligation to seek funding earlier,” said County Administrator Craig Weinaug, who helped broker the deal. “So we do not view this as an indicator that they don’t intend to meet their commitments to us. The key issue will be a year from now. If they’re not making requests for funding then, that will be a problem.” But some local leaders were hoping that the good faith effort would begin a bit early.

summer, the state has continued to receive good news about its finances. The state’s tax collections have exceeded projections for six straight months through the end of September. The state is now projecting to end the next fiscal year with cash reserves of nearly $200 million, The Associated Press has reported. “I definitely would have been much happier to see that good faith effort to restore our funding start this year,” Cromwell said. “That would have been a great sign that the good faith was genuine. There is still time for this to all work out, but that definitely would have eased some concerns.” The state’s improved financial condition may give the city and the county a better chance of convincing legislators that funding for the Lawrence SRS office should be included in the upcoming budget. Douglas County Commissioner Mike Gaughan said he expects the county to lobby legislators to provide funding for the SRS office immediately, rather than waiting for the local agreement to expire. “I would love to see this resolved before two years are up,” Gaughan said. The city and county’s agreement with the state is structured so that if the Legislature provides funding for the office, the city and county are no longer obligated to make the quarterly payments to the state. — City reporter Chad Lawhorn can be reached at 832-6362.

fice. “The Respondent’s (Kline’s) dishonest and selfish motives aggravate the misconduct in this case,” the panel wrote in its 184-page report. “The Respondent failed to take any responsibility for his misconduct.”
No loss of license The recommended sanction from a three-member panel of the state Board for Discipline of Attorneys reflects the board’s belief that Kline repeatedly violated the state’s rules for attorneys. It stopped just short of recommending that he lose his law license, something state Disciplinary Administrator Stanton Hazlett had proposed in pursuing the case. Hazlett didn’t comment on the panel’s decision, only summarizing its contents and noting that the Kansas Supreme Court will have the

migration in Alabama. Hispanic advocates and some business groups have said the Alabama law is causing panic and many undocumented workers are fleeing the state. The American Subcontractors Association said even legal workers are leaving because they may have a family member in the country illegally. Last month, a federal judge upheld parts of the law that authorizes police to detain people suspected of being in the country illegally. Other provisions require public schools to determine the legal residency of children. Kobach said the law is working as planned. “You are encouraging people to comply with the law,” he said. He said he has heard that U.S. citizens are lining up for jobs at an Alabama meat-packing plant where illegal workers are leaving. Kobach argued that illegal immigrants are a drain on the national economy because of the welfare and education services they use. But Cardenas and Johnson said the United States needs immigrants and if all undocu-
mented workers left, the economy would fall into a tailspin. Cardenas noted that when a meat-packing plant in southwest Kansas was destroyed by fire several years ago, it was local leaders — not immigrants — who pleaded with the company to rebuild. Earlier in the conference, James Hawkins, chief of the Garden City Police Department, said if Kansas adopted a law, similar to the ones in Alabama and Arizona that require police to check on immigration status, it would hurt his officers’ ability to enforce the law. “It would really confound local law enforcement,” he said. Garden City is home to several large immigrant groups and Hawkins said police work hard to communicate with them and gain their trust in order to investigate crimes. Kobach disagreed with Hawkins and said it was possible that an Arizona- or Alabama-type law would be considered next year by the Kansas Legislature.
final say on whether Kline will face sanctions. It will be at least six months before the court hears Kline’s case. An attorney whose license is indefinitely suspended can file a petition to have it reinstated, but such an action by the court is rare. Kline’s investigations of the late Dr. George Tiller, of Wichita, and a Planned Parenthood clinic in the Kansas City suburb of Overland Park led to criminal charges. Tiller eventually was acquitted; the Planned Parenthood case is pending. Kline is now a visiting assistant law professor at Liberty University in Lynchburg, Va., founded by late evangelist the Rev. Jerry Falwell. His Kansas law license has been inactive since October 2010.
that the Johnson County district attorney’s office misled a grand jury, empaneled in 2007 to review evidence against the Planned Parenthood clinic, came from the group’s presiding juror. Abortion opponents, however, have called the disciplinary process unfair. Five of the seven Kansas Supreme Court justices were appointed by Democratic governors who supported abortion rights, and the court suggested in 2008 that Kline’s conduct could warrant sanctions. Kline also noted that the Supreme Court appointed Hazlett and the disciplinary board members. As district attorney, Kline filed 107 criminal charges against the Planned Parenthood clinic in 2007, accusing it of performing illegal abortions and falsifying records. The clinic says the allegations are baseless, but a hearing to determine whether the case goes to trial — long delayed by legal disputes — is set for Oct. 24-26 in Johnson County District Court.
Case history Though Hazlett brought the complaint to the board, Kline has long faced fierce criticism from abortion providers, abortion rights advocates, Democrats and even some fellow Republicans. The allegation

Abuse survivor grateful others stepped in to help By Karrey Britt email@example.com
Lawrence resident Rebecca Delaney nervously stepped up to the microphone and told her story for the first time. She had survived years of domestic violence and abuse. She spoke before about 150 people Thursday evening in South Park as part of Take Back The Night, a global effort to support survivors of sexual assault, rape and violence. The 31-year-old Delaney’s story began at age 16 with a love note that was left on her car from a man who was 5 years older. He saw her, described how beautiful she was and left his phone number. “It was incredibly romantic,” she said. They talked on the phone and then started dating. “I felt like finally somebody understood me. It was like a romance novel,” she said. Delaney — a straight-A student — ended up dropping out of school and moving in with the man, and that’s when her nightmare began. “He was progressively more and more abusive. He isolated me from all of my friends and he took away all of my self-esteem and eventually he just ended up hitting me,” she said. She had a son at age 19 with him and that’s when

Showdown looms at Wall St. protest Officials on Thursday moved to put an end to Wall Street protesters’ month-long occupation of a park that spawned similar gatherings across the nation, setting up a potential confrontation with police and an uncertain future for a movement that claims to speak for the disillusioned middle class. Demonstrators at the half-acre park in lower Manhattan have said they won’t go anywhere at this morning’s deadline when the park’s owners, their patience worn thin, want them to clear out and stop pitching tents or using sleeping bags. The company that owns the private park where the demonstrators have camped out said it has become trashed and unsanitary.

Obama blames Iran for plot President Barack Obama said Thursday that officials at the “highest levels” of the Iranian government must be held accountable for a brazen and bizarre plot to assassinate the Saudi ambassador to the United States on American soil, insisting leaders of the world will believe the U.S. case without dispute once they absorb the details. U.S. officials, meanwhile, confirmed the Obama administration has had direct contact with Iran over the allegations. The U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, Susan Rice, met with Iranian officials at Iran’s mission to the U.N. on Wednesday — a highly unusual contact for two countries that do not have diplomatic relations. Obama would not say whether Iran’s supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, or its president, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, knew of the alleged plan. Yet he called it part of a pattern of “dangerous and reckless behavior” by the Iranian government and said people within that government were aware of a murder-for-hire plot. 2 | WASHINGTON, D.C.

Scientists win prestigious Higuchi awards By Andy Hyland email@example.com
Four Kansas scientists — one from Kansas University, one from KU Medical Center and two from Kansas State University — have earned Higuchi-KU Endowment Research Achievement Awards, the state’s most prestigious recognition for excellence in research. Each award comes with a plaque and $10,000 that can be used for ongoing research. Takeru Higuchi, a distinguished professor at KU from 1967 to 1983, and his wife, Aya,
established the awards in 1981. The four researchers will be honored in a ceremony at 3:30 p.m. Nov. 9 at the new Education Pavilion at the Lied Center. The public is invited to the event, which will be followed by a reception.
The awards recognize achievement in humanities and social sciences, basic sciences, biomedical sciences and applied sciences. Each award is named for former KU Endowment leaders who played a role in attracting Higuchi to KU.
This year marks the 30th consecutive year the awards have been given out. This year’s recipients: !

Abortions under health law voted down retary Kathleen Merrigan said The House on Thursday returned to an abortion issue that nearly sank President Barack Obama’s health care law last year with legislation that bars an insurance plan regulated under the new law from covering abortion if any of its customers receive federal subsidies. Providers that offer abortion coverage would have to set up identical plans without abortion coverage to participate in the health insurance exchanges to be set up under the new law. The legislation, which passed 251-172, is unlikely to be considered by the Democratic-led Senate and faces a veto threat from President Barack Obama. But it gives House Republicans, focused this year on cutting spending and reducing the size of the federal government, a chance to reaffirm their credentials on social conservative issues. Democrats chided Republicans for wasting time better spent on promoting job growth.

Salon suspect’s ex-wife claimed abuse Scott Dekraai’s neighbors considered him one of the friendliest guys on the block, a man who invited them over for pool parties and played catch with his son in his yard. Friends of his ex-wife, though, say she lived in fear of the man now accused of gunning down her and seven other people at the hair salon where she worked. He suffered post-traumatic stress disorder from a 2007 tugboat accident that mangled his leg and left a colleague dead. His marriage to Michelle Fournier was falling apart even before that, and the court battle over their 7-year-old son was still raging Wednesday, when Dekraai is accused of spraying the Salon Meritage with gunfire. Among those killed was Fournier, his ex-wife. The salon’s popular owner, Randy Fannin, also died. Fournier’s boyfriend, Michael Warzybok, said that at a court hearing Tuesday a judge had pressed Dekraai to explain why he needed more time with his son than his current custody arrangement called for. Warzybok said a court-appointed psychologist had found the roughly 50-50 arrangement was working. “All of a sudden, he didn’t get his way,” said Warzybok, who was interviewed by the psychologist along with Fournier’s co-workers.
ANDERSON CHANDLER LECTURE
Author: Crisis could have been worse By Andy Hyland email@example.com
Kevin Anderson/Lawrence Journal-World Photo
ANDREW ROSS SORKIN, New York Times reporter and author of “Too Big to Fail,” delivered the Anderson Chandler lecture Thursday at the Lied Center.
Even though we’re living in a country with 9 percent unemployment, journalist and author Andrew Ross Sorkin said Thursday that it could have been much, much worse. “We were looking at 25 percent unemployment in this country,” one year down the road had the nation taken no action in the bank bailouts of 2008, he said. That figure had been confirmed by Henry Paulson, a former U.S. treasury secretary, as a figure that the government was considering at during the crisis.
Sorkin, who covers mergers and acquisitions for the New York Times, is an anchor on the CNBC television show “Squawk Box” and is the author of the book “Too Big to Fail,” delivered the Kansas University School of Business’ Anderson Chandler Lecture on Thursday. He took the audience back to 2:30 a.m. on Sept. 18, 2008, 45 minutes after Lehman Bros. failed and after Merrill Lynch agreed to be sold to Bank of America. When the taxpayers took action to bail out the banks, it was the next dominos that could have fallen that would have been really troublesome, Sorkin said. The peo-
ple in the room making the decisions for the U.S. government, he said, were really worried that a series of bank bankruptcies would lead to a bigger issue. “General Electric was going bankrupt next,” he said, taking its 287,000 jobs around the world with it. The effects of that bankruptcy would have been worse than many countries going bankrupt, he said. The effects could have spread to all kinds of companies, he said. “All of a sudden, the kid flipping burgers is being affected by the guy in pinstripes,” he said. Please see LECTURE, page 4A

on the Vpu protein and how it causes diseases in a target host. “It’s a great honor,” Stephens said. “I’m really glad that I won it, and hopefully it will allow me to recruit more graduate students.” ! Irvin Youngberg Award for Applied Sciences, to Xiuzhi Susan Sun, a university distinguished professor of grain science and industry at Kansas State. Her work focuses on biopolymers, and ways to produce chemicals and materials from renewable feedstocks such as grain, corn and straw that are environmentally beneficial and sustainable, replacing petroleum-based products. She holds eight patents and has six patents pending. “I’m thrilled and I’m happy to do something for the people of Kansas and the world,” Sun said. “I feel rewarded.” ! Olin Petefish Award in Basic Science, to Michael
Kanost, a university distinguished professor of biochemistry at Kansas State. His research primarily focuses in two areas — on insect immune systems and on the chemical makeup of insect exoskeletons. The immune systems of insects can help with a variety of issues, including how insects spread disease and in coming up with biological pathogens that can help with pest control, he said. Knowing how exoskeletons are made might help people create new materials that are hard, lightweight and flexible, which could have medical uses, he said. “It’s going to help with some travel and those sorts of things,” Kanost said of the award. “It’s an honor to be recognized with that prestigious group of researchers.”

Namesake proud of lecture series’ growth By Andy Hyland firstname.lastname@example.org
The benefactor of Thursday’s Anderson Chandler lecture said this week he is pleased with what the series has become. Chandler graduated from KU in 1948 with a degree in business, and was a Summerfield scholar. Today, he is the CEO, president and director of Fidelity State Bank and Trust Co. and vice president and director of First Bank of Newton. He has supported KU with gifts of more than $1 million

Government officials, he said, weren’t extremely forthcoming about the full magnitude of the problem. When he asked stakeholders why, he said the answer was almost always the same. “If we had actually told the public what we knew, we would have only made it
to support the lecture series and a an Anderson Chandler distinguished professorship. The Chandler lecture series has attracted people like Ford CEO Alan Mulally, former FDIC chairwoman Sheila Bair and Thomas Hoenig, the former president and CEO of the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City. “I felt a lecture series
would encourage more people to enroll in the business school,” he said. He has invited several speakers he knew himself from the Topeka area, like former Westar CEO Jim Haines, and the business school has suggested others, he said. Former Kansas Gov. Bill Graves and syndicated columnists Robert Novak and David Broder have also delivered the lecture. “We’re always looking forward, and getting timely people,” he said. Chandler went to KU on the
GI Bill after enlisting in the Army Air Force at age 17. He was named an honor graduate of the United States Air Force ROTC program at KU, and received a reserve commission as second lieutenant, but decided to go into the family business of banking. Neeli Bendapudi, KU’s business dean, introduced Chandler on Thursday night, and said that the school was proud of his accomplishments. “He has received every award we can think of at the school and the university,” she said.
worse,” Sorkin said. He got the idea to write his book —which was based on interviews with 200 principals involved for more than 500 hours — after waking his wife up at 2:30 a.m. on Sept. 18 and telling her all the things that were going on. It almost was like a movie, he said. “No, Andrew,” she said. “It’s like a book.” In the end, they were both right. HBO picked up the book and made a movie that aired earlier this year.
Today, he said, the economy still faces many challenges, and he said if people aren’t paying attention to what’s going on in Europe, they should be. He said path to recovery would be painful, and whatever the solution is will take a long time. Regardless of people’s political opinions on President Barack Obama’s jobs plan, he said that we don’t need a jobs plan for 12 to 18 months. “We need a jobs plan for
the next decade,” he said. Everyone in the room, he said, should take some responsibility for how we got here, and he said patience and willingness to withstand an amount of pain will be required to get us out. “We are the ultimate ADD society, and I would argue we’re getting exactly what we’re paying for,” he said.

L AWRENCE J OURNAL -W ORLD “The opportunity to scale up to serve a greater percentage of our population with local food is, I think, quite vast, but we need the infrastructure in there,” York said. “We need aggregation of the locally grown crops. We need distribution, and we need light processing. There’s just a lot that’s needed.” Mercedes Taylor-Puckett, the local food and farmers’ market project director for the Kansas Rural Center, said she was glad Merrigan could visit northeast Kansas. “We’re in the infancy here of developing a strong regional food system,” she said, “so we’re hoping for some opportunities to grow.”

after 10 a.m. Thursday about a mile south of Tonganoxie. Eldon L. Barrett was heading north on U.S. Highway 24-40 when his steering column started to wobble and he lost control of the bike, according information that two people who were riding their motorcycles with Barrett gave Leavenworth County sheriff’s officials. Sheriff’s Lt. Mark Metcalf said it appeared that after Barrett lost control of the 2000 Honda Shadow, it went off the road and hit a ditch. The bike, with Barrett still on it, traveled about 20 yards before coming to rest in a field. Metcalf said Barrett suffered a leg injury, but the lieutenant was unsure whether Barrett had additional injuries. Barrett was wearing a helmet, Metcalf said, and is from Parker, about 15 miles south of

Osawatomie. • A Lawrence woman was taken to Lawrence Memorial Hospital by ambulance Thursday evening after a two-vehicle accident near the intersection of Sixth and Mississippi streets. Lisa Johnston was driving a motorcycle west on Sixth Street shortly after 5:30 p.m., when a car coming from the other direction attempted to turn left onto Mississippi Street, cutting Johnston off. Johnston hit the car, which was driven by a 17-year-old Eudora girl, said Lawrence Police Department Sgt. Troy Squire. Squire said the investigation was ongoing and a citation for the driver of the car was pending. Squire said her injuries were believed to be non-life-threatening.

L AWRENCE J OURNAL -W ORLD
Maple Leaf Festival prepares for ‘huge year’ good weather for this weekend and the (Maple Leaf Quilt Show) is having its 40th year and with the Midland Railway running its train, I bet we’re going to have a huge year,” Vesecky said. “Anytime the weather is nice, we usually have a record-setting year and beat out the year before.” New to the festival this year are car show groups. Three groups will participate in the Maple Leaf Festival Parade and afterward will set up in different parts of town so guests will be able to view the cars up close. Crafts booths are always a staple of the Maple Leaf Festival, and this year the number
of booths has grown to 320. “We have more booths than we’ve had for quite some time,” Vesecky said. The Business and Professional Women’s Foundation’s craft show runs at the same time as the Maple Leaf Festival; however, it is not a part of the festival. The BPW will have its own crafts, booths, music and food. It will be in the gymnasium on Chapel Street between Sixth and Eighth streets. Vesecky said the main goal of the Maple Leaf Festival is to draw a large crowd to Baldwin City for the weekend. “We want our community to benefit from it because the money we raise for doing
the booths, we turn that back into the community by giving scholarships or helping the fire department or helping the school purchase stuff,” Vesecky said. “We hope for a good turnout, so in return we can turn around and help our community.” Along with booths and the parade, the festival will also host a variety of activities including a Kid’s Zone with inflatables and a petting zoo, a full carnival, country music, history tours and train rides at the Midland Railway.
the Constitution was passed — until 1899. Students reading “Tom Sawyer” in English then can come to history class and learn how the themes of slavery, U.S. expansion, border wars and other topics fit in with Twain’s book, published in 1876. Barker has been taking advantage of such synergies for all 15 years he’s been in the district. It’s not easy, of course, but Barker figures students should be exposed to some of the transgressions of the past so that they can better understand what followed, what exists and what is to come. “How do you explain to kids that what happened in 2008 — with Barack Obama being elected — is truly, completely and utterly historic if they can’t see what our society was in the 1830s, ’40s, ’50s, and what it continued to be through the 1880s, ’90s, Plessy v. Ferguson, ‘separate but equal’ and all that?” he said. “It is so difficult sometimes for our kids to wrap their heads around this.” Susan Harris, a Twain scholar and Distinguished Professor of English at Kansas University, understands how principals might object to “Tom Sawyer” as a core text. The racial implication
of Injun Joe, after all, is that “he’s a thief and a bad person because he’s Indian.” But Harris applauds teachers such as Barker and others who approach the themes, issues and language of the book with more than the literal meanings of the words and descriptions alone. “This needs to be taught, but it needs — as any historical novel needs — to be historicized,” Harris said. “Rather than the teacher setting out all the lessons, the teacher needs to be able to elicit student discomfort, and then find ways of helping the students understand where that discomfort comes from. “With young students, we can’t whitewash history for them. It’s refusing to admit the ugliness in your history. If you refuse to admit ugliness in your history, then you’re doomed to repeat it.” Principals understand why the majority of English teachers favor using “Tom Sawyer” as a core text, aside from its subject matter: The book includes “rich vocabulary” and other literary devices — alliteration, similes, metaphors, onomatopoeia, personification and on down the line — that make it “rich in (addressing)
the state standards” in place for eighth-graders, said Will Fernandez, principal at South Middle School. “That’s why they use it,” Fernandez said. “It’s all in there.” And that’s why this week Fernandez is reading the book again, for the first time since “way back in the day,” during his own junior high years. Next month, he and his fellow principals will gather for a meeting with their schools’ English teachers, to discuss the topic and try to identify an alternative story or letter or other writing to serve as a core text for eighth grade. English teachers at his school already are preparing a presentation for why “Tom Sawyer” works for them. Now, having already heard from students and parents who object to the story, Fernandez wants to see for himself. “It wasn’t offensive for me then,” he said, of junior high. “But this is 2011. I’ll read it and see if there’s any reason to take offense, from an adult standpoint.”

BALDWIN CITY — As the third weekend in October approaches, Joanna Vesecky and the rest of the Maple Leaf Festival Committee is scrambling to make sure every detail for the event is taken care of. “A big, nice turnout and lots of smiles make the stress of the year worthwhile,” said Vesecky, Maple Leaf Festival vice chairwoman. Last year, the festival drew record-breaking crowds to Baldwin City, and the committee is hoping for the same this year. “Since it is supposed to be

trict find themselves reading books and other materials that portray their ethnic groups during specific periods and in specific roles — such as blacks as slaves or in dealing with the civil rights movement. “The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn,” for example, is a book used in 11th grade. Middle school principals have decided that “Tom Sawyer” doesn’t fit within the broad context identified for determining a core text for eighth-graders. “It has not been removed as a book,” Bodensteiner said. “It doesn’t mean that ‘Tom Sawyer’ couldn’t and shouldn’t be included. It’s just a matter of whether we need to broaden the literature so that there is a respect for all of our students throughout history.” But Kelly Barker, who teaches American history at Southwest Middle School, remains upset that the book did not achieve “core” status. He’s required, by the state, to teach his students about U.S. history from 1787 — when

Important gift Two longtime supporters have once again shown their commitment to Kansas University.
he money is important, and how the funds will be used is important. However, the most important part of the recently announced fund to recognize outstanding Kansas University librarians is the names of the donors: Phil Anschutz and the Anschutz Foundation, and Gene and Gretchen Budig. Anschutz is a 1961 KU graduate, and Budig was the university’s chancellor from 1980 to 1994. Both the Anschutz and the Budig families realize the importance of superior libraries. Budig has said that there are no great universities without superior libraries, and the gifts announced this week recognize the vital role of libraries and librarians. Anschutz and Budig have been generous in their support of KU. Although both now live far away from Mount Oread, the recent gift offers great evidence that they continue to have a deep interest in the university. These are two important and influential “alumni” of KU: Anschutz, a Kansan who has been extremely successful in his business career and provided the funds for the Anschutz Library, and Budig, who, although a Nebraskan by birth and a graduate of the University of Nebraska, has perhaps been more generous in his fiscal contributions to KU than any other KU chancellor. The university is fortunate to have these two men continue to show their respect and allegiance to the university. Alumni such as Anschutz and Budig, along with the more than 40,000 members of the KU Alumni Association, represent the real strength of the university. It sends an important message when two such nationally recognized figures show that they want to do what they can to help build the school into a truly outstanding state-aided research institution.
Win-win A willingness to compromise may produce a win-win solution for a historic property.
he ability to compromise may be a lost art in the federal government, but it apparently still is alive in Lawrence. A proposal to build a 50-unit apartment project in the 1000 block of Indiana ran into trouble with historical preservation people recently because the plan called for moving the Varsity House, built in 1908, from its location at the corner of 11th and Indiana. Developers said their project would only work if the house was moved north to the middle of the 1000 block. Preservationists said it was important to keep the house —which was designed by a female architect and was the home of Kansas University football teams in the 1950s — at its corner location. The city’s Historic Resources Commission agreed that moving Varsity House from its corner would damage the “environs” of the nearby Oread Historic District, but the project could have gone forward if Lawrence city commissioners had determined there was “no feasible and prudent” alternative to moving the house. Fortunately, before commissioners were forced into this standoff, Commissioner Mike Amyx proposed a compromise that both sides say they find acceptable: move Varsity House south instead of north. Such a move would put the house closer to the street but maintain the corner location that preservationists value. At the same time it would clear enough space to accommodate the planned apartment development, which would incorporate the historic structure. Plans will have to be revised and resubmitted, but it’s nice to see them moving forward thanks to local people who are willing to work together and reach a compromise on a contentious issue. LAWRENCE

Romney has money and momentum HANOVER, N.H. — There are polls and there are polls. And in a Dartmouth College auditorium Tuesday night, the Republican presidential candidates indicated their selection for the front-runner in the struggle for the GOP nomination in a most unconventional, and most unmistakable, way. Just after the halfway point of the two-hour session in a hall that ordinarily is the site for a cappella torch songs and Mahler symphonies, the eight candidates were

The change in the Republican race is palpable. The candidates once were hellions on a tear. Now they’re tired and tamed, no longer cocky, surprisingly cautious.”
invited to address a single question to one of their rivals. It was a chance to deliver a zinger — or maybe a knockout punch. What happened was curious, and curiously revelatory. Four of them, including the two most pugnacious (Gov. Rick Perry of Texas and former House Speaker Newt Gingrich of Georgia), addressed their questions to former Gov. Mitt Romney of Massachusetts. The only other contender who was the object of more than one candidate question was pizza magnate Herman Cain, who received two.
Romney stakes his claim That small episode was more than a swiftly passing wrinkle in the seventh Republican debate of the 2012 campaign. It clearly showed that Romney’s claim on the nomination is the strongest, and his responses — careful but convincing, flowing and fluent — served to emphasize his ascent. Then came perhaps the most revealing moment. Romney had his chance to put one of his rivals on the spot. He chose Rep. Michele Bachmann of Minnesota, who as winner of the Iowa straw poll in August became a shooting star, but one who seems to be falling rapidly in the political sky, and his question wasn’t a shout or a shiv but instead a symbol of the emerging Romney way. With restraint and respect, he didn’t challenge Bachmann but instead invited her to set forth more of her economic views.
In a mere 10 seconds Romney did two things. He indicated that Perry and Cain weren’t significant enough threats to him to bother putting them on the defensive. And in a party that once preferred a scotchand-soda cocktail hour to a tea party, he displayed a glimpse of the — dare this word be typed about the new GOP in the new century? — chivalry that marked the party of his father and most Republican fathers of yore. Amid the rapidly changing leaves of New Hampshire’s tranquil Upper Valley this week, there was no mistaking the change in the tone, timbre and tensions of the Republican Party. Hours before the Dartmouth do-si-do, Romney summoned the press corps to nearby Lebanon, N.H., but didn’t use the occasion to unveil yet another policy plank. After all, his plan has 59 points, more than Woodrow Wilson (14), God (10), Harry Truman (four) or Cain (with three, squared, comprising his mind-numbing 9-9-9 chant). Instead, Romney had not a trope but a trophy — the endorsement of Gov. Chris Christie of New Jersey, lately the sweetheart of a swath of swooning Republicans who want to fall in love with anyone as long as he or she isn’t an already-announced candidate. This was the overture to the Mitt moment. The debate was the coda. Now the Republican race has a new clarity, and a new tone. Romney sits atop the heap, in real numbers as well as in moments that stand as metaphors. This week’s NBC News Poll taken by the Marist Institute, released hours before the debate,
showed a slight Romney lead in Iowa but a decisive Romney advantage in New Hampshire, with his 44 percent more than three times bigger than his two closest rivals (Cain and Rep. Ron Paul of Texas, both at 13 percent) and seven times bigger than his putative (but increasingly less pugilistic) opponent, Perry, who in New Hampshire, if not nationally, is rapidly becoming an afterthought rather than a thoughtful alternative for a Republican morning after. But the horse race numbers tell only part of the story. Here’s the rest: Romney racks up big pluralities when poll respondents are asked which candidate is closest to them on the issues (38 percent), shares their values (35 percent) and can beat President Barack Obama (48 percent). Then there’s the question oldline Republicans used to ask: Who has the experience to do the job? This is a Romney landslide, with 63 percent.
GOP race has new feel The change in the Republican race is palpable. The candidates once were hellions on a tear. Now they’re tired and tamed, no longer cocky, surprisingly cautious. The GOP race once seemed multilayered, like the granite outcroppings on a New Hampshire byway. Now there are only two, maybe three, striations left. Romney has the momentum and the money, Perry only the money. Team Romney expects that the Texas governor, who played only a bit part in this week’s proceedings, will toss $1
million into New Hampshire, hoping that a polished media assault on Romney might do what an unpolished and unprepared debate performance has failed to do, which is to keep pace with Romney on the clubhouse turn of the run toward the nation’s first primary. For a half-century, the Top of the Hop, an airy expanse perched on the campus arts center, has been a Dartmouth hub for after-class leisure, laughter and lies. Tuesday night it was filled with the saddest subspecies of homo politicus, the campaign spinners, and standing amid the carnival barkers was Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz of Florida, who heads the Democratic National Committee. “It must be very frustrating to be a Republican tonight,” she said to no one in particular, and for a moment it seemed the product of yet another phase in the spin cycle. But later, in the cold air of a New Hampshire evening on a New England town green, and perhaps in the cool light of reason, the comment seemed illuminating for no other reason than that it may be an illusion. Romney remains over-prepared and over-programmed. One, maybe two, of his rivals will have a moment in the sun, and my bet goes to Paul, who has worked the hardest and has yet to have his harvest. And it is a long way from a campus debate to a general election. But Tuesday showed that Romney’s Republican opponents — and Obama — have reason to be worried, maybe very worried.
Pay it forward To the editor: In the Oct. 7 Journal-World, Bob Johnson’s letter tried to refute the claim of Massachusetts Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren that successful people should be willing to pay more taxes to “pay forward” for the benefit of society. He said the factory owner paid for all the streets, schools and public services before, during and after the factory was built. Unless a factory owner was born at home and schooled at home, he owes a great deal to the community that provided the hospital, schools and infrastructure. Saturday’s Journal World carried the news that taxpayers will provide $1.3 million to help convert a warehouse to apartments, provide a $25,000 “forgivable loan” to a local sportswear company, $30,000 to a plastics company and $48,000 to help convert a Masonic Temple into a restaurant. Previously, taxpayers provided millions of dollars of tax rebates to firms like DreamWings, Davol, E&E Specialties and Sauer Sundstrand. None met their agreedupon employment levels and all went out of business or left town when their abatements expired, with no long-term gain for the city. We are awash in corporate welfare while recipients beat their chests about free enterprise. Recent surveys show that
very wealthy people, from Warren Buffet on down, agree that they should pay more taxes. So, that suggestion can hardly be described as “class warfare” as alleged in Mr. Johnson’s letter. Graham Kreicker, Lawrence
Voting power To the editor: For the past few weeks, thousands of Americans have gathered on Wall Street protesting the disparity between the top 1 percent wealthiest Americans and the other 99 percent of Americans struggling to maintain. What is especially galling was the bailout of these same banks and Wall Street by American tax dollars that then were used to provide extravagant bonuses for Wall Street executives! The newspaper and TV “pundits” seem bewildered because there are no demands by these protestors, no articulated list of grievances to be addressed. Perhaps one of the causes of these demonstrations is the feeling of impotence on the part of the American voter, who elected politicians based on their campaign pledges. Once elected, they conveniently forget all their wonderful promises and instead pursue selfish, self-centered agendas designed to get them re-elected. This “political amnesia” seems applicable to all politicians. Dem-

OLD HOME TOWN ocrats like President Obama, who promised to end our wars, and our illustrious Republican governor, Brownback, ruthlessly abusing power and running roughshod over the Kansas people in his dream to one day run for president. This callous disregard for the voter, makes our votes virtually worthless, makes all voters inconsequential, into “non-sequiturs,” turns America’s “democratic process” into a tragic joke. The simple solution? Voter-imposed term limits! If a politician doesn’t honor his commitments, then they are fired in the next election by the 99 percent for lying and making empty campaign promises. We 99 percent do have the power to provide meaningful consequences for politicians’ bad behavior! Curtis D. Bennett, Lawrence

A $3,000 AGO StairMaster, reIN 1986 ferred to as the “new ‘revolving stair’ machine,” had been installed at Fire Station No. 1. The machine not only helped firefighters stay in shape, it also helped estimate how long a 30-minute airpack would last under the exertion of actual firefighting conditions.

Woods again searched for missing baby KANSAS CITY, MO. (AP) — Kansas City police have again searched a large wooded area near the home where an 11-month-old baby was reported missing last week. Police returned Thursday to the area about one mile from the home where Lisa Irwin’s parents reported her missing early Oct. 4. Jeremy Irwin and Deborah Bradley said the baby was gone from her crib after Jeremy Irwin returned from a late shift at work. The parents say they believe that someone abducted the child. Police have said they have no suspects or leads. The area that was searched Thursday had been checked the previous day by teams with all-terrain vehicles and tracking dogs, but police said they wanted to give the area a more complete search.

KANSAS MEN’S BASKETBALL MEDIA DAY Tom Keegan firstname.lastname@example.org
Taylor’s ready to lead Everything about Kansas University senior point guard Tyshawn Taylor is quick. His feet. His hands. His mind. The motor in his mouth. The man is one fast talker. It’s difficult for anybody like that to take a seat, relax and take in the world. It wasn’t until Taylor served a late-season, two-game suspension that he took in his world. His world is basketball. And for a change, he sat on the outside looking in. “You know what, I just thought about being able to watch those games from the bench, I got to see stuff that I didn’t see in the game,” Taylor said. “I watched Elijah (Johnson) most of that time because he was playing that position, so I got to see times when he could attack and he wouldn’t in a game, so I think just being able to see the game from that aspect helps.” Even when he practiced during that time, his vantage point changed. “I got to play against the starters in practice, so I was watching how they were guarding me at practice, and coach was just letting me play, so I was shooting it every time,” Taylor said. “That gave me some confidence in my game. I was making some shots, and when I came back, we had a couple talks, and coach let me play and had confidence in me, and I played pretty good.” It’s not known what Taylor did to draw the suspension, but at this point, who really cares? He came out of it a better man and basketball player. He shared a little bit about what his talks with his coach were like. “They could be different,” Taylor said. “They could be really good or terrible. I’ve had a bunch of both. Coach Self is a really understanding guy. I mean, he definitely wants the best for us. He’s hard at times, but at times some of us need that, so I think he finds a happy medium for the most part.” Taylor is the leader of a team that doesn’t have as much depth, size or offensive firepower as most of Self’s. Taylor’s been around long enough to know Kansas still has something going for it that opponents don’t. “With coach Self being our coach and the good work our coaches do on scouting reports and things like that, I think we always have an advantage just because of our coaching staff,” Taylor said. Coaches and their point guards, both strong-willed by nature, forever butt heads. Taylor knows Self will face so many challenges with such a young roster shy on size, he can’t afford his most experienced player acting like anything but his most mature player. “I think if he’s happy with me, I think I’ll be a happier person and a better player, honestly,” Taylor said. “When he’s happy, everybody’s happy, and we can just play and have fun, and it won’t be like just screaming, screaming, screaming. “I think it’s easiest to keep him happy, and I just felt like we haven’t in the past.” Self predicts Taylor will make him proud. “I think he’s going to have a great senior year,” Self said. “I think he’s matured. I think he’s grown up.” He’s gone from follower to leader. “He said he wanted it, and now’s he got it,” Self said. “And now we’ll see how he reacts to it. But all indications are to me and to our staff that he’s well on his way to doing a great job with it.”

THE KANSAS NEWCOMERS, clockwise from front, are Naadir Tharpe, Christian Garrett, Kevin Young, Merv Lindsay, Ben McLemore and Jamari Traylor. The NCAA still has not cleared McLemore and Traylor to practice with the team in advance of tonight’s Late Night in the Phog.
... but will they all play? McLemore, Traylor still ineligible By Gary Bedore email@example.com
Ben McLemore says that, outside of basketball, his greatest talent is ... dancing. “I wish I could sing. I definitely can dance. I’ve got the dancing skills and the moves. I can’t wait until they tell us what’s going on so I can play in Late Night and show everybody I can dance,” McLemore, KU’s 6-foot-5 freshman guard from St. Louis, said with a smile. As of Thursday, it had not yet been determined whether McLemore and fellow freshman Jamari Traylor would be able to participate in tonight’s Late Night in the Phog, set for a 6:30 p.m. start in Allen Fieldhouse. They’ve both been able to attend class and play in unofficial pick-up games
since an NCAA ruling on Sept. 8, but they cannot participate in official team activities as they await word on their eligibility from the NCAA. KU coach Bill Self implied at Thursday’s meday that an LATE NIGHT dia announcement IN THE PHOG may be coming soon indiWhen: 6:30 tonight, cating the two doors open at 5:30 would not be Where: Allen Field- cleared to play this season — house “We still have TV: Metro (cable hope, but we’re ch. 37) not holding our breath on that situation at all,” he said. Self nonetheless wants to see the duo at least sing, act, dance ... and play tonight. “They won’t participate in prac-
ALL TIED UP
tice. I just want them to come out there and be a part of the team, and I don’t see how that affects anything,” Self said. “But based on the information we have right now, that determination has not been made whether or not they can come out there and be a part of the festivities with no regard to practice. “I don’t understand that one, so that’s one we’ll continue to fight for until Late Night to see if that can happen, because they deserve that.” Self did not sound hopeful that the two would be deemed eligible for participation their freshman seasons. “I’ve held off talking about that, but they know where they’re at. And they know we’ve tried, and we’re trying to get some things done,” Self said. “And obvious-
ly, we haven’t got the answers that we want, because if we had, we’d have shared them with you. That’s a factual thing. It’s not totally negative. I’m not saying that at all. We still have hope, but we’re not holding our breath on that situation at all.” Self said he was not upset at the NCAA Clearinghouse. “The NCAA has been great. I mean, we can agree to disagree,” Self said. “But it’s not because of anything they’ve done. They’ve been fair and responsive. We are still holding out a little bit of hope. They’ve made it pretty clear that this is what they see as of now. Hopefully I’ll make an announcement sooner rather than later, so these kids can know the situation where they are at,” Self Please see BASKETBALL, page 4B

LAWRENCE HIGH’S JOHANNES REIBER, LEFT, TRIES to get the ball past Free State’s Zach Gay during the city soccer showdown Thursday at FSHS. The game ended in a 0-0 tie following two overtime periods and an overturned goal. Story on page 3B.
OLATHE — Free State cornerback Kyle McFarland could already see the future when he lined up across from Olathe Northwest 6-foot-10 receiver Willie Cauley on the biggest play of the game. “Everyone in the stadium knew where that was going,” McFarland said following Free State’s 20-14 victory over Olathe Northwest at CBAC. “Willie was out wide, and everyone knew he was going to that fade route.” Sure enough, with Free State clinging to a six-point lead and Northwest facing a fourthand-10 on the Firebirds’ 49 with 1:40 remaining, the Ravens threw a jump ball to the Sunflower League’s best receiver. Only this time, Cauley was outmaneuvered by the 6-3 McFarland, who leapt in front of him for an interception to help clinch the Firebirds’ victory. “It was fun,” McFarland said. “It was a good feeling when I Kevin Anderson/Journal-World Photo came down with it.” FREE STATE RUNNING BACK SHAWN KNIGHTON, RIGHT, STIFF Before the play, Free State ARMS an Olathe Northwest defender for more yards as FSHS Please see FSHS, page 3B defeated Northwest in district play Thursday at CBAC.

Stern: Tuesday D-day for Christmas games NEW YORK (AP) â€” Commissioner David Stern said his â€œgutâ€? tells him there will be no NBA basketball on Christmas without a labor agreement by Tuesday. That day, when owners and players are scheduled to meet with a federal mediator, is a â€œreally big deal,â€? he added. Owners will then open two days of board meetings Wednesday, and without an agreement to
bring them, Stern believes further cancellations are coming. â€œRight now, Tuesday, Tuesday, Tuesday, just before my owners come into town, having brought in the labor relations committee and Billy (Hunter) having brought in his executive committee, itâ€™s time to make the deal,â€? Stern said Thursday. â€œIf we donâ€™t make it on Tuesday, my gut â€” this is not in my official capacity of canceling
games â€” but my gut is that we wonâ€™t be playing on Christmas Day.â€? Stern canceled the first two weeks of the regular season on Monday when the sides couldnâ€™t reach a deal before a deadline he had set. Christmas is traditionally the first big day of the NBA season. This yearâ€™s three-game schedule features the NBA finals rematch
between the Dallas Mavericks and Miami Heat. The sides will need to act quickly to save it. The talks have stalled over the structure of the salary cap system and the division of revenues between owners and players. They will meet Tuesday with George Cohen, the same mediator who tried to resolve the NFLâ€™s labor dispute months before it eventually ended.

Spurrierâ€™s credibility takes a hit
Source: Carolina to name Bubba next AD
By Tom Sorensen McClatchy Newspapers
Steve Spurrier hurt his credibility as a football coach in South Carolinaâ€™s home loss to Auburn. He hurt his credibility as a leader and a man Tuesday when he walked out of a news conference because of the presence of a columnist he doesnâ€™t like and, an hour later, announced quarterback Stephen Garcia was cut. Spurrier has suspended Garcia, a fifthyear senior quarterback, five times. But Spurrier allowed him to return this summer in time for practice. Garcia didnâ€™t miss a snap. Although Garcia didnâ€™t start in South Carolinaâ€™s opener in Charlotte against East Carolina, he was integral in helping the Gamecocks overcome an early deficit and beat the Pirates. But Garcia has played poorly lately. Heâ€™s been as likely to throw an interception as he is to get suspended. Spurrier replaced him in the starting lineup with Connor Shaw. The better Shaw has played, the more expendable Garcia has become. According to ESPN.com, Garcia tested for alcohol and marijuana, and after five suspensions heâ€™s not supposed to do those things. So heâ€™s finally off the team. Spurrier prefaced his weekly news conference Tuesday by telling the media that â€œas all of you know weâ€™ve got a negative guy over there.â€? The negative guy, says Spurrier, is The (Columbia) State newspaper columnist Ron Morris. Spurrier said he was upset about a column Morris wrote in March about Bruce Ellington, a South Carolina basketball player. Morris alleged that Spurrier poached Ellington from the basketball program to the football team. Spurrier said Tuesday that Morris made the story up. So are we to believe that for six months Spurrier has silently suffered and chose Tuesday to come out of his shell and address the Ellington story? Or do you think Spurrier might have been angry about a column in which Morris ripped Spurrier after the Auburn loss? Spurrier said Tuesday he doesnâ€™t care if writers criticize him. Heâ€™s making this up. Heâ€™s called me twice to complain about columns Iâ€™ve written, once when he was at Duke and once last season. He cares desperately how heâ€™s perceived. Spurrier said as head coach at South Carolina, a public taxpayer-supported institution, he didnâ€™t have to talk to Morris. He left the news conference to adjoin to another room, and invited broadcasters to join him. They were going to talk one-onone. The way he said it, they would all get a special treat. As bad as the Auburn loss was, Tuesday was worse. Spurrier came undone. Whatâ€™s that saying? Ah. I remember. When the going gets tough, the tough leave the room.

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. â€” North Carolinaâ€™s trustees will meet today to approve the hiring of Tulsa athletic director Bubba Cunningham as the schoolâ€™s next AD, a person familiar with the situation said Thursday. The person spoke to the Associated Press on condition of anonymity because a formal announcement has not been made. The school has scheduled an emergency meeting of its board of trustees for this morning to discuss â€œa personnel matter.â€? The school also said it expects to hold a news conference afterward, though it didnâ€™t say why. If approved, Cunningham Cunningham would replace Dick Baddour, who is stepping down after 14 years amid the ongoing NCAA investigation into the football program. Chancellor Holden Thorp has said Baddour would remain on at least until the schoolâ€™s appearance before the NCAA infractions committee on Oct. 28. Baddourâ€™s successor will inherit a 28-sport department that stands as one of the flagship programs in the Atlantic Coast Conference. That person would have an immediate job in hiring a new football coach after the abrupt firing of Butch Davis just before training camp in July, including whether interim coach Everett Withers â€” who has the Tar Heels off to a 5-1 start â€” should be the permanent choice. In addition, that person might have the monumental task of eventually hiring the successor to Hall of Fame menâ€™s basketball coach Roy Williams, though the school announced earlier Thursday it had extended Williamsâ€™ contract through 2018. Itâ€™s not the first time Cunningham has been the target of a BCS program. He appeared close to taking over as athletic director at Kansas University in December and had even begun contract discussions there before reversing course and agreeing to a contract extension to stay at the Conference USA program.

City showdown ends in scoreless, double-OT tie By Corey Thibodeaux email@example.com
After 99 minutes of backand-forth play, it figures the last shot would come down to Lawrence High’s standout goalie against Free State High’s scoring menace. FSHS senior Jake Walter broke free and had a one-onone opportunity against LHS senior goalie Tanner Click with 16 seconds to go in the second overtime. Click leapt forward, timing the jump perfectly, grabbed possession of the ball and did his best to get the ball to his team with time left to score. The clock ticked down, and the cross-town rivals had to settle for a 0-0 tie Thursday night at Free State. “He’s a good goalie,” FSHS senior Andrew Craig said of Click. “But Jake’s probably one of the best strikers here
on the field. It would have been nice to have it.” Both teams had grounds to say that they could have or should have won. The Lions and Firebirds each had calls go against them and missed opportunities they would like to have back. Most notably, with 3:00 left in the first overtime, the whole LHS fan section thought the Lions had won. A would-be goal resulted from a struggle in front of the Firebirds’ goal, but a penalty was called, and the goal was nullified. It seemed that both teams played similar defensive styles, but that didn’t translate into actually knowing how to break down the other team effectively, LHS senior Nick Haig said. “We couldn’t figure out each other’s tactics, how we had to play defensively and
how their offense worked,” Haig said. The whole game was a defensive struggle, which is how both teams usually play. But neither team budged much, except for the negated goal. Overall, LHS coach Mike Murphy said it was a hardfought and sportsmanlike game and that the end result could have been worse. “I feel like we came out of the game with a positive attitude,” Murphy said. Both coaches had compliments for the other team, with Murphy commenting on Free State’s offensive attack of seniors Walter, Zach Gay, Zack Thompson and Hunter Peirce. FSHS coach Kelly Barah showed his respect for Click, who held the Firebirds scoreless. Barah also said Murphy has done a solid job with the
Lions and their program is on the upswing. “I think Lawrence soccer is just getting better and better,” Barah said. “I can’t wait to see what the future holds for us.” This game is the second consecutive 100-minute, double overtime tie for FSHS after Tuesday’s 0-0 game against Olathe East. The Firebirds felt good about that tie, but this one was a little harder to take. “As a coach, you would say that you take this one instead of losing,” Barah said. “Not satisfied by any means, but I think the atmosphere was great, and it was a well played game from both sides.” LHS (5-7-2) will host Shawnee Mission West at 7 on Tuesday night. FSHS (75-2) will visit Mill Valley at 6 p.m. Monday.

Lawrence High ready for challenge of Olathe North By Corey Thibodeaux firstname.lastname@example.org
Lawrence High’s football team makes fitting in replacement players look seamless. Senior Wyatt Woods has done a solid job at center for senior Brady Murrish; junior Tyrone Jenkins stepped into the starting running-back role after the season-ending injury to senior Charles Jackson; and senior DeCorey Pittman disrupted plays behind the line of scrimmage for senior Jake Vinoverski last week. Woods and Jenkins will have the same responsibilities as in previous games, but Pittman will have a more important role this week as LHS (4-2) visits the Olathe District Activity Center at 7 tonight to face Olathe North (5-1).
“This week we’re going to need for him to step up and improve from last week because the competition is going to be that much better,” LHS coach Dirk Wedd said of Pittman. “I have all the confidence in the world LHS VS. that he’ll do that.” OLATHE VinoverNORTH ski is out for another Records: Lawrence High is 4-2; week as he Olathe North is 5-1 c o n t i n u e s to recovWhen: 7 tonight er from a Where: ODAC separated shoulder, so Pittman has the start again.

but they will get some help, as Murrish returns to the field. Wedd said he won’t start this week, but Murrish will see some action along the offensive line to rest the starters. Wedd wants all his players to be ready, which is why he tells his bench players that they are one snap away from being contributors. But Pittman has seen what has happened to his injured teammates. As a senior, Pittman said he is blessed to be given an opportunity to perform, especially against a team where the Lions will need him to excel. He just doesn’t want it to end so soon. “I know that each play could be my last,” Pittman said. “So I really look forward to each play, every drive. I don’t take anything for granted.”

coach Bob Lisher and one of his assistants tried screaming at McFarland to get him to give Cauley a bit more cushion. Though McFarland never heard either one of them, he still stuck right on Cauley to make the game-saving play. “It was a great individual effort,” Lisher said, “to get great position on him and go up and get the football.” Free State ran out the clock with three running plays, improving to 5-2 overall, 1-0 in district play and ensuring a winning season with two regular-season games remaining. McFarland’s interception capped an outstanding second half from the Firebirds’ defense, which made a 20-14 halftime lead stand by allowing no points in the final 24 minutes. After allowing Northwest quarterback Cole Dahlquist to complete 10 of 14 passes for 137 yards in the first half, the Firebirds defense held him to 3-for-16 passing in the second half for just 31 yards. Free State linebacker Calloway Schmidt credited the second-half improvement to a switch in defenses. After going with man coverage most of the first half, the Firebirds used more CoverTwo zone in the second half. “With that, we were able to get under some passes, break them up and not allow those big plays anymore,” said Schmidt, who added a second-quarter interception. “They weren’t able to do what they wanted to do and get those long fade routes.” The change also limited
a great back like that will give us even more confidence to stop the three or four good backs that they have,” he said. O-North has a talented running back tag-team with seniors Treshawn Root and Orange Mooney, who Wedd
said has Div. I talent. After O-North’s previous game, the Lions know those two backs can be stopped. In a battle of unbeatens last week, Olathe South took apart O-North, 29-10, while holding Root and Mooney to less than 100 yards each. The Eagles will want to avenge that loss tonight, which makes them more of a threat, Pittman said. Wedd said the recipe is for the Lions to play their best defense and continue being efficient on offense while not turning the ball over like they did last week. In other words, they have to play their best game of the season as district play starts. “This will really be an indication of where we’re at,” Wedd said. “I think our kids are really up for a challenge.” The Lions will be tested,

For seven years in the early 2000s, Kansas University offensive coordinator Chuck Long had the luxury of going behind the curtain at one of the most successful college football programs of the BCS era. Saturday, when KU plays host to No. 3 Oklahoma at 8:15 p.m. at Memorial Stadium, Long will get the chance to see what all those teams he beat up on as an offensive assistant at OU must have experienced during that Long stretch. “It’s an interesting week for me,” Long said. “Because I know what that staff is all about. I know the inner workings of that staff, and they’ve got it dialed in. I know how hard they work. I had some great, wonderful years with them — some of the best years of my coaching career.” Although he has coached at two schools since working with the Sooners, Long, a native of Norman, Okla., always kept OU, and head coach Bob Stoops, on his mind. “I had a lot of pride in what we did at Oklahoma,” he said. “Because we all worked together on those game plans, and we worked together well.” At OU, first as quarterbacks coach (1999-2001) and then as offensive coordinator (02-05), Long coached one
Heisman Trophy winner (Jason White, 2003), two Heisman finalists (Josh Heupel, 2000, and Adrian Peterson, 2004) and helped the Sooners win a national championship in 2000. He said the key to OU’s rapid and sustained success was tied directly to the top-notch coaching staff. “They’ve got a great program, there’s no question about it,” Long said. “They’ve recruited well. But they’ve also developed well. People think they get all these fivestar guys. But when we first built that program, we were getting the three-star kids. We just developed them. You develop the program to the point where you get more of the four- and five-star kids, but they’ve had as many three-star guys go on and do well at that level and the next level as five-star guys. It’s ingrained now, and now it’s just at the point where it gets handed down.” While Long has nothing but great things to say about his time in Norman, those he left behind uttered equally impressive sentiments about their former colleague, in Guerin Emig’s blog in the Tulsa World, earlier this week. “The first thing that comes to mind is he’s one of the best people you’ll meet,” said former OU quarterback Heupel, now an assistant on Stoops’ staff. “Close family. Great energy. He never had a bad day in his life. Very positive. He walks into the meeting room just like he walks out the front door every day, with the same attitude, the same gleam in his eye and the same excitement about
the day. I think that translates into the meeting room and the guys he comes in contact with.” Added OU defensive coordinator Brent Venables: “Great knowledge of the game. Terrific competitor. He’s got a great demeanor about him, how he handles young people. Just a really good teacher of the game. He broke a bunch of scoreboards and records when he was our coordinator. That was no surprise.” Long said Stoops taught him a variety of skills during his seven years at OU. He incorporated many of them into his own coaching philosophy. “The most important thing he does, and there are a lot of them, is the way he approaches practice,” said Long of Stoops. “He approaches practice and games with the same intensity. He wants you to bring it every day.” Despite his clear appreciation for the OU program, Long said he loved being at Kansas and was looking forward to the challenge of facing his former team Saturday night. “I was on a great offensive staff at OU,” Long said. “But I tell you what, the staff that I’m on, offensively, is just as good. I love working with these guys every day. They’re very experienced, they’re professional and we work together. You like history to repeat itself in terms of the win column, and that’s not happening at this point. But history has repeated itself for me as far as being on a similar staff and that’s been really great.”

Jayhawks won’t shy away from poll rankings By Gary Bedore firstname.lastname@example.org
Tyshawn Taylor senses some negativity nationally surrounding Kansas University’s 2011-12 basketball team. “I’ve been reading about where people see us in the country. It doesn’t seem too many people think we’ll be that good,” said Taylor, KU’s senior point guard from Hoboken, N.J., who indicated he was “shocked” Thursday after learning the Big 12 coaches picked KU and Texas A&M as preseason cofavorites to win the league. Taylor had heard Baylor, A&M and Missouri might finish ahead of KU in the polls. “It’s a great compliment. We’re excited about that. I just want to get four (in his career) and go home,” Taylor said. “I don’t want to be the one it (streak of seven straight league titles) ends on. We’ve got to keep working to make it happen.” The Jayhawks received five first-place votes to A&M’s two en route to 73 points in the coaches poll. Baylor, which received two first-place votes, notched 63 points, while Missouri, with one first, had 61. Texas placed fifth (51), followed by Kansas State (39), Oklahoma State (33), Iowa State (27), Oklahoma and Texas Tech (15 each). “I’m surprised. I always say that the coaches know more than the media, but I’m not sure that’s the particular case in our league right now,” KU coach Bill Self said with a smile. “Last year we had the (Morris) twins and (Brady) Morningstar, (Tyrel) Reed and (Josh) Selby and (Mario) Little, and I think the coaches picked us third. We don’t have any of those guys now, and they picked us tied to win it. “That doesn’t bother me. We’ve kind of gone into the season with tempered expectations, to be honest with you. I’ve tried to do that with our fans a little bit. I think it speaks volumes to how well some of these guys and certainly how players in the past have performed here in league play. I think it’s fine, and we’re kind of used to being in the situation where people expect us to be decent. We won’t shy away from that.” Coaches were not allowed to vote for their own teams.

added. “They know what’s going on. ... The thing about it is with those two kids, it’s unbelievable to me, their attitude with me is, ‘Hey, coach, we’re going to be OK.’ I’m amazed how good of an attitude they have. They haven’t missed a class. They are caught up academically after starting late. They feel they have something to prove more than basketball, which isn’t a bad thing.” Freshman Braeden Anderson recently was deemed a partial qualifier and left KU

Elijah’s twin: KU junior Elijah Johnson revealed in this year’s KU media guide that he has a twin brother. Is that true, Elijah? “Yeah, I’ve got a twin. He actually plays on this team,” Johnson said Thursday at media day. Really? Who’s that, Elijah? “That kid right over there,” he said of Tyshawn Taylor. “You ever seen the movie ‘Dumb and Dumber?’ I would just be dumb. I think he would be dumber. We are the same person. We grew into the same person. His tendencies rubbed off on me, and mine rubbed off on him,” Johnson added. “I say that a lot, and a lot of people don’t understand. He’s the only one who understands what I’m talking about.” Taylor said he’s going to enjoy playing in the same backcourt as Johnson. “We spend a lot of time together working out. We know each other’s tendencies more, and we’re learning more about each other because we have been on the same team more in pickup,” Taylor said.

What he did here was incredible to me. I don’t try to fill his shoes. I try to fill my own shoes. It’s what he told me to do.” Langford, who recently left his pro team in Russia and is negotiating to play in Israel, will be at Late Night tonight. “It’s the only time he’s going to be able to see me play. He should be going to his new team next week,” Wesley said. Of Wesley, Self said: “He’s probably as quick an athlete we’ve had since we’ve been here. He’s really athletic. I think he’ll definitely be part of the rotation.” Self said former walk-on Conner Teahan also would be on scholarship for a second straight year. KU will have eight available recruited scholarship players on the roster if Jamari Traylor and Ben McLemore are deemed ineligible for this season. !
Recruiting: Two top prospects in the Class of 2012 will attend Late Night as part of official campus visits. They are: Perry Ellis, 6-8 forward from Wichita Heights, who has orally committed to KU, and Kaleb Tarczewski, 7-foot from St. Mark’s High in Southborough, Mass., who is down to KU and Arizona. Tarczewski, who will visit Arizona on Oct. 21, is ranked No. 20 overall and Ellis No. 24 nationally by Rivals.com. Several players from the Class of 2013 will be in Lawrence this weekend on unofficial visits. They are: No. 8-ranked Chris Walker, 6-9 forward, Holmes County High, Bonifay, Fla.; No. 24 Allerik Freeman, 6-4 guard, Olympic High, Charlotte, N.C.; No. 35 Brannen Greene, 6-7 forward, Mary Persons High, Forsyth, Ga.; No. 71 Karviar Shepherd, 6-9, center, DeSoto (Texas) High; and Shepherd’s prep teammate Jordan Mickey, 6-7 forward, ranked No. 75. No. 52 Isaiah Lewis, a 6-2 guard from Christ the King High, Brooklyn, N.Y., had planned on attending but will reschedule a visit, he told Rivals.com.
Wesley on scholarship: KU coach Self revealed that sophomore Justin Wesley has been placed on scholarship this school year. Wesley, a 6-foot-9 sophomore transfer from Lamar University, is brother of former KU stand! out Keith Langford. Self on junior Thomas “I talk to him about three or four times a week. He just Robinson: “I love his att-
after the Big 12 faculty reps did not approve him for aid. Had he been given the OK by the Big 12 faculty reps, he could have practiced second semester and been eligible next year with four years of eligibility remaining. Traylor and McLemore have been on scholarship. They have been allowed to attend class and play in unsupervised pickup games, but not take part in official team activities. Their continuing presence on campus seems to indicate that a possible scenario might involve the duo being allowed to practice second semester but not play in games until next season.
Nobody’s saying that is definitely the case at this time. “I usually come in coach’s office, talk to him, ask him what kind of feedback he’s getting for us,” said McLemore, who started at Wellston High in his hometown. Last year, he attended both Oak Hill Academy in Mouth of Wilson, Va., and Christian Life Center in Houston. “We’re just waiting. A lot of players are praying for us every day. Hopefully they will make the decision and we’ll be able to play this year,” McLemore added. Traylor, a 6-8 forward from Chicago, attended Fenger and Julian High Schools in the Windy City

He’s a guy that if he did not play well we could still put our starters back in the game.” Now, Self indicated, Robinson will be the focal point of opponents and the media. “That’s a different pressure, a thing he’ll rally around fine. But it’s a big deal when Sherron (Collins) took every shot, and when we didn’t win, Sherron shouldered it. I think Thomas and Tyshawn for the most part will shoulder it this year.” Self said Robinson had to be the best-conditioned athlete in the Big 12 this year as he could play more than 30 minutes a game if he stays out of foul trouble. !
Self on junior forward Kevin Young: “Kevin is one of those guys who could potentially be a starter. He’s kind of a hybrid, a little like Julian (Wright). He’s going to have to play inside some and on the perimeter, a jack of all trades with us. I think he’ll be a huge impact (player) for us,” especially after he “gets comfortable basketballwise.” !

I am happy to be here and have the opportunity to go to school. I’m not sure what the problem is. I just hope the decision comes out in my favor.” The two were not able to participate in the recent Boot Camp conditioning program. “I don’t feel I’m behind. I know if I am behind I’d get caught up pretty quickly because coach Self is one of the best coaches in the country,” Traylor said. “I would just love to have the opportunity to be out there.”
Noted McLemore: “It’s been hard not getting to do the individual workouts with my teammates. I am not going to let it get me down. I’ve mainly been focusing on school right now, going to class getting my grades up.” Self noted that it’s a positive that the two have been able to go through this period of uncertainty together. “They don’t feel sorry for themselves They are getting three squared (meals) a day and they’ve got a big bed to sleep in.

LATE NIGHT HISTORY
L AWRENCE J OURNAL -W ORLD

A look at ‘Late Night’ through the years By Gary Bedore email@example.com
Dressed in gold from head to toe, Bill “Vanilla Ice” Self provided arguably the coolest moment at the 2010 Late Night in the Phog in Allen Fieldhouse. “Yo, Allen Fieldhouse, what’s up tonight?” Self, Kansas University’s basketball coach, bellowed into the microphone to begin the proceedings. The answer? Some wild and crazy stuff, typical of the previous 25 season-opening Late Nights. Self’s outfit, in his words “a takeoff on cheap silk,” drew the most laughs of last year’s three-hour show that concluded with a scrimmage highlighted by Marcus Morris’ 14 points and eight rebounds and Tyshawn Taylor’s nine points and two assists. “I’m glad coach did that,” current KU senior Taylor said of modeling sunglasses, a shiny chain and blue KU cap, worn backwards. “I can talk about that at practice sometime.” Emcee was former KU and NBA power forward Scot Pollard, who showed up wearing a tuxedo, white shirt and bow tie. Pollard ripped off his coat and ripped apart his shirt, revealing a black fake-tuxedo shirt. “Somebody picked K-State to win it (league title) ... that’s fine. That really is fine,” Pollard told 16,300 fans. “You know why (it’s fine)? Apparently they forgot last year we won the Big 12 by four games.” Here’s a look at Late Night year by year. ...
The 25th-annual Late Night included KU one-and-done player Xavier Henry making his hoops debut and dance debut. He wore a huge afro wig during a number. An all-star cast of recruits watched the action, including Royce Woolridge, Josh Selby, Josiah Turner, Doron Lamb and Harrison Barnes. Mario Little may have been best-dressed Jayhawk in a number with slick black slacks, a bright red shirt and suspenders. Jeff Withey wore old short-shorts in a 1988 skit.
KU unveiled its national championship banner to the delight of the fans. The thunderous ovation during the banner presentation had to be one of the loudest moments in fieldhouse lore.
Players were carted to the fieldhouse in a Corvette, Infiniti, Mercedes-Benz, Lexus, BMW, Hummer, Avalanche and stretch limousine onto a Red Carpet for interviews with “Survivor” winner and KU grad Danni Boatwright.

scrimmage dunk-athon. Also, Ryan Robertson had a big role in a skit as host of the game show, “The Price Is Right.”
Drew Gooden sat in a canoe with John Crider as the canoe was pulley-ed across the fieldhouse floor. Jeff Carey, who showed with a wavy head of hair instead of his trademark crewcut, had teammates shave his head under the south goal. The canoe bit was funny, but took longer than expected to shave Carey’s moptop.
Big men Eric Chenowith and Carey played electric guitar as Collison sang vocals for the Limp Bizkit song, “Faith.” They were joined by a drummer in the KU band.
Pollard became the first basketball player in KU history to score 14 points, grab seven rebounds and block four shots while wearing bright red polish on all 10 fingernails. “Revlon Vixen” was the eccentric player’s color of choice. That’s the night Pollard, who is now with the Indiana Pacers, proposed marriage to his girlfriend, who accepted, by the way.
The theme was “Night at the Naismiths” — an awards show in which guest judges rated acts and presented not an Oscar, but a “Naismith’’ to the winners.
A transfer from LSU, Lester Earl wore a black leather jacket in a spoof of 1950s music. Earl had some vicious dunks, as did Gregory and Paul Pierce in a pre-
Fans dressed as their favorite TV sitcom characters before the scrimmage. The Lone Ranger, Silver, Tonto, Gilligan’s Ginger and Granny Clampett all were on hand. This Late Night marked the debut of freshmen Jacque Vaughn, Pollard, B.J. Williams and Nick Proud, as well as Cal transfer Jerod Haase. Proud didn’t last long at KU, but the other guys were part of many victories.
Fans showed early for the Saturday night event which started when former KU football coach Glen Mason took the court and yelled, “Live from Allen Fieldhouse, it’s Late Night With Roy Williams.” Now a color analyst for the Big Ten network, Mason has said one of his favorite moments at KU involved the reception he received at that Late Night. Earlier that day KU had won a football game during a 10-2 season.
as honorary coaches. Brett and Watson appeared to have a blast, not minding the late hour.
Baseball Hall of Famer George Brett and golfing great Tom Watson joined ex-Royals’ center fielder Brian McRae and ex-KC Chief defensive back Deron Cherry
Nobody has had more fun at Late Night than 7-foot-2 giant Greg Ostertag, who showed up in a Frankenstein monster outfit. Roy Williams’ entrance was followed by a ribbon-cutting ceremony for the new fieldhouse floor. Even though Late Night was televised, the TV show drew poor reviews.
Williams decided Late Night would be better suited on a Friday night, not Monday, the first day KU could practice in accordance with NCAA rules. Controversial move at the time, but a smart one, made so he could bring recruits to town for the made-for-recruiting event. The fans responded, packing the building.
More than 13,000 fans showed to see the Jayhawks dance and scrimmage after a long Sunday of pro football, including a Chiefs’ home game against Detroit. During the scrimmage, current San Francisco coach Rex Walters scored 16 points and amazed the crowd with some violent dunks.
A $5 admission fee was charged to pay for two bands, who performed on a massive sound stage. Maddox, Rick Calloway, Freeman West and Jeff Gueldner lip-synched the song, “Simply Irresistible,” which was big-time funny because of a truly huge sound stage in the north end zone. A lot of fans came to see the bands, evidenced by the smell of marijuana during the concert portion of the show. Suffice it to say, admission was never charged again and no bands besides the KU pep band ever played at Late Night again.
Williams’ first Late Night — it was called “Later With Roy Williams” — drew 10,000 fans. Alonzo Jamison brought down the backboard on a pre-scrimmage dunk, thrilling the attendees, but delaying the proceedings. After the new goal was in place,
Milt Newton led the Blue team to a 36-35 victory as he scored 16 points.
Current KU assistant coach Manning and teammate Scooter Barry sang The Temptations’ song: “My Girl.” The normally reserved Manning was willing to grab center stage prior to his senior season. KU went on to win the national title.
“Late Night With Larry Brown” became a major happening in 1986, thanks in large part to its namesake, Late Night With David Letterman. One-time Letterman foil Larry Bud Melman visited Lawrence for the early Wednesday morning scrimmage, first signing autographs at 7 p.m. at the Burge Union.
KU’s inaugural “Late Night With Larry Brown” was not a big deal. It attracted 6,000 fans. “It was fabulous. I was thrilled with the students,” Brown said of the fans who showed at 12:01 on a Tuesday morning. Many of the students wore T-shirts that read, “Late Night With Larry Brown. Starring the 1985-86 Kansas basketball team … all the way to Dallas.” That KU team prophetically did reach the Final Four in Dallas. Current Jayhawk coach Self was a grad assistant on that team.

Santa Fe in Olathe. “We understand the need for people to have solid transportation at an affordable price. We’ve been holding on to trade-in vehicles for the last month just for this sale. The best part is that three lucky people will be able to buy a car for only $5.00!” said Bill Dimitras, General Sales Manager at Robert Brogden GMC/Buick. “We have more than 100 cars and trucks we will slash prices on during this sale on Saturday morning. People will have the opportunity to save thousands of dollars.

If you are sitting in the driver’s seat, you can buy the car for the slashed price!
The junior class of Jeremy Case, Sasha Kaun, C.J. Giles, Darnell Jackson, Russell Robinson and Rodrick Stewart “waltzed” their way to an American Idol dance competition victory over the Jayhawk sophomores, who “tangoed,” and freshmen, who twirled to the “swing” in front of judges Self, Danny Manning and Aaron Miles.
For the first time ever, the festivities started at 6:30 p.m. instead of 10 or so according to new NCAA rules.
Tuxedo-clad seniors Keith Langford, Michael Lee, Miles and Wayne Simien bowed their heads reverently while grasping KU’s 1988 national-championship trophy at the conclusion of a dramatic skit.
Bil Self’s first Late Night took on the name, “Late Night in the Phog.” Self received a thunderous ovation after a showing of a highlight video of the coach’s introductory press conference. “I have been in some loud places,” former Illinois coach Self said, “but that place got pretty loud there for a bit. That was a little bit overwhelming.” The fans also rocked the building when the 1988 title team, led by coach Larry Brown, was introduced.
KU seniors Nick Collison and Kirk Hinrich stole the “Mardi Gras”themed show, Collison playing volatile Texas Tech coach Bob Knight in one skit and Hinrich portraying Missouri coach Quin Snyder in another.
Freshmen Simien, Lee, Miles, and Jeff Hawkins serenaded their mothers in a song and dance that coach Roy Williams didn’t enjoy. Williams said he couldn’t hear anything because of a faulty fieldhouse sound system. Late Night
Three lucky people will be able to buy a car for only $5.00! “Can you imagine the excitement of buying a reliable car for only $5.00?

manager Tony La Russa said. “It comes down to that day, who makes the pitch.” Francisco Rodriguez allowed a hit in the eighth and John Axford finished for his second save of the series and third this postseason. The Brewers ended an eight-game road losing streak in the postseason dating to the 1982 World Series opener at St. Louis. And Wolf ended
a lengthy drought of his own — before Thursday, his 342 starts without a postseason victory were the most among active pitchers. Game 4 loser Kyle Lohse moves to second on the list at 298 starts, trailing only Ted Lilly’s 318. Jaime Garcia faces Zack Greinke for the second time in the series in Game 5 tonight. Either way, the NLCS will be decided back at Miller Park. “We’re pretty much the only team that’s played pretty well in Milwaukee. Flip the page and hopefully come back to tomorrow. It’s a great series. Nobody is going to run away,” Cardinals star Albert Pujols said. Jerry Hairston Jr. doubled twice with an RBI and Wolf hit one of the Brewers’ five doubles. Braun is batting .471 (16 for 34) in the postseason with two homers and nine RBIs. The Cardinals needed more heavy duty from their bullpen, too, after Lohse, pitching on 12 days’ rest, failed to make it out of the fifth. “I’m not going to blame it on the layoff,” Lohse said. “We’re professionals and we’ve got get the job done. Tonight, we didn’t do it.”

A swift turn of events in the sixth helped Detroit pull ahead. The Tigers turned a basesloaded double play to keep the score tied at 2, then opened the bottom half with a single, double, triple and homer — in order — to take a 6-2 lead. It was the first time four consecutive batters on one team hit for a “natural” cycle in a postseason game, according to STATS LLC. The Rangers were the ones who seemed on the verge of breaking the game open in the sixth, loading the bases with one out. But then Ian Kinsler hit a grounder right to third baseman Brandon Inge, who merely had to step on the bag and throw to first for a double play. “We had him right there in the sixth. He got out of it,” Texas manager Ron Washington said. “We missed a home run by inches, and they opened the game up by inches.”

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Power pitching often dominates in the postseason. Soft tosses by Randy Wolf got the Milwaukee Brewers back to even in the NL championship series. The 35-year-old lefty outfoxed the St. Louis Cardinals for seven innings to earn his first postseason win, and the Brewers got two more hits from Ryan Braun in a 4-2 victory Thursday night that evened the NL championship series at 2-all. “It was a big feeling just to be back out there again after my last start,” said Wolf, hit hard by Arizona to force a deciding Game 5 in the first round of the playoffs. “Just to be able to get another opportunity to pitch again was important. “You know, I’ll be honest with you, the day after the Diamondbacks start, I didn’t eat or shower that day,” he said.” Flipping some pitches in the mid-60s mph, Wolf allowed two runs and six hits, striking out six with one walk. Matt Holliday and Allen Craig homered for the Cardinals, representing their only runs in the last 16 innings. “I think it’s classic because playing each other so many times, we’re dead even,”

Disney talent show strictly for tweens If you think the talent show genre has become a tad saturated, you’re not alone. Undaunted, Disney launches its firstever talent competition aimed exclusively at teens and tweens. A half dozen contestants appear on “Make Your Mark: Ultimate Dance Off — Shake It Up Edition” (7:30 p.m.). They were culled from nearly 30,000 hopefuls who submitted video auditions. The winner will appear in a “Spotlight Dance” on an upcoming episode of the series “Shake It Up.” ‘‘Make Your Mark” not only appeals exclusively to the youngsters, it’s judged by a panel of youthful talents, including Selena Gomez, Sean Kingston and choreographer Rosero McCoy.
If Disney aims for the tween girl demographic, there are certain quarters of the cable universe where the older guy is king, even if he is a tad rough around the edges. Forty years ago, few people would have predicted that the “Easy Rider” myth would lead us to “Hairy Bikers” (9 p.m., History). But it has. Paul Patranella is a 4-star, classically trained French chef who likes to leave the saute pan behind to sit atop a motorcycle. Along with his mechanic and sidekick Bill Allen, they blaze along the back roads and blue highways of America to find other eccentrics, peculiar traditions and good — or, at least interesting — food. Over the course of the season, Paul and Bill go bullfrog hunting in Arkansas and compare recipes for frog legs. Both are rather emphatic that they don’t “taste like chicken,” and exult in their “amphibian” flavor. In another “Hairy” adventure, they hunt, kill and eat nutria, an invasive rodent found in abundance in Cajun country. They also attend a cooking competition where the only rule is to use castiron Dutch ovens over open fires and barbecue pits. You will be surprised what you can do with this simple but elegant device. And, of course, Paul puts a French twist on his entry. Many years on motorcycles must have left the guys slightly deaf. They don’t so much talk for the camera but yell. This adds to the overall high-testosterone atmosphere. This is certainly not the first show about biker adventures in search of road food. And it won’t be the last. Just what this is doing on the History Channel instead of the Travel Network or the Food Network is anybody’s guess. On the other hand, what is “WWE Friday Night SmackDown” (7 p.m.) doing on Syfy?
Kelly Miller, a favorite from a 2010 episode, finally walks down the aisle on “Say Yes to the Dress: The Big Day” (9 p.m., TLC).

Dear Annie: My husband and my son-in-law are both alpha males. My daughter and I are very close. In the early years of my daughter’s marriage, there was a small power struggle between her husband and me, but I bit my tongue until it bled. We seem to have reached detente. My husband, however, has not. ‘‘Joe,” my daughter’s stepfather, is a smart, nice guy. I married him when my daughter was in high school, and she respects him a great deal. She frequently asks for his advice and help. The problem is that my son-in-law, “Todd,” bristles at any advice from Joe and refuses to accept it. Then Joe becomes angry and cannot accept that Todd doesn’t want his territory invaded. We live several states away, but they need our help taking care of our granddaughter, so we visit regularly, always at their request. The visits always start out well, but after a day or two, the arguments begin, and I feel caught in the middle. Todd already has a fragile ego because my daughter is the breadwinner. He cannot tolerate Joe’s opinions on anything, and I can’t ask my daughter to help navigate this issue, because she will rightly back her husband. Any advice would be

Cain’s surge has campaign struggling to organize By Shannon McCaffrey and Steve Peoples Associated Press
ATLANTA — Reveling in the national spotlight, Herman Cain is pledging to bolster his fledgling White House campaign. He’ll need to — and quickly — if he has any hope of winning the Republican nomination. The unlikely presidential contender has little campaign organization in Iowa, New Hampshire and other states where voting begins in less than three months. And he hasn’t done much else in those places to capitalize on his recent surge in polls. “We are now going to ramp up,” Cain promised this week. By that he means executing what aides call a 50-state strategy — for a nomination contest that’s determined state by state. It’s a nontraditional path that other candidates have tried unsuccessfully. Cain’s campaign, which can seem almost overwhelmed by the attention that comes with a big rise in polls, argues that competing in the early voting states, while important, is not the only way to win the party’s nomination. His aides note that Barack
O b a m a ’ s 2008 campaign fanned out across the country and was successful. But Obama competed vigorously in the Cain early voting states, too. Still, Cain, who never has held political office, clearly has struck a chord with a part of the Republican electorate craving a fresh face not tied to the GOP establishment. This is the first presidential contest since the tea party’s rise, and Cain is in many ways the natural culmination of the grass-roots movement: a straight-talking political outsider, espousing an antitax platform. “The conservative wing of the Republican Party has been auditioning for an anti-Romney alternative for months now,” former GOP strategist Dan Schnur said. “They’ve tried Michele Bachmann and Rick Perry, and they both wilted under the scrutiny. So far, Herman Cain seems to be holding his own.” Atlanta Tea Party Patriots co-founder Debbie Dooley explains it this way: “With Herman, what
you see is what you get.” There’s no telling how long the love for Cain will last or whether he can turn the buzz into votes on primary and caucus nights this winter. It takes more than enthusiasm to win the presidency. It takes money and organization, and Cain trails his top GOP rivals on both fronts. Earlier this year, Cain had to lend his campaign $500,000 to stay afloat. He’ll report his fundraising for the past three months within days. He is suggesting that money will no longer be a problem and says he now has enough to expand his campaign. “I didn’t want to get out in front and commit to spending a whole lot of money before I knew that the American people were going to say, ‘You know what? This long shot may not be such a long shot,” Cain says. His shoestrings campaign has a certain improvised feel as it scrambles to hire staff and keep pace with the intense media interest enveloping the former head of Godfather’s Pizza since he cruised past Romney in a recent NBC/Wall Street Journal poll. In New Hampshire this week, Cain’s new press
spokesman J.D. Gordon, sheepishly admitted to a throng of reporters that he didn’t know the specifics about the candidate’s schedule that same afternoon, nor the last time Cain had been in the state. Cain has kept a nontraditional schedule. With his popularity climbing last month, he eschewed the campaign trail for bookstores as part of a tour to promote his new memoir. And Thursday, as the new poll showed him leading the pack, Cain didn’t beeline it to Iowa to try to capitalize on it as expected. Instead, he made a relatively low-key appearance in Ohio at a Christian university. And on Friday, he was launching a bus tour through Tennessee. Neither state holds a primary until March — two months after voting begins. Cain argues that he’s not ignoring the early states, and insists that he’s adding staff and building campaigns in them. He was an early visitor to Iowa, making his first trip to the leadoff caucus state in summer 2010. But Cain hasn’t visited since the state GOP’s presidential test vote Aug. 13. And his campaign there has been beset by staffing woes.
King of Bhutan marries in elaborate ceremony By Ravi Nessman Associated Press
PUNAKHA, BHUTAN — The fifth Dragon King came down from his golden throne to place a silk crown upon the head of his bride. Monks chanted in celebration and she took her seat beside him Thursday, the new queen of the tiny Himalayan nation of Bhutan. The wedding of King Jigme Khesar Namgyal Wangchuck to his commoner bride, Jetsun Pema, has captivated a nation that had grown impatient with their 31-year-old bachelor king’s lack of urgency to take a wife and start a family since his father retired and handed power to him five years ago. Thousands of Bhutanese from the surrounding villages joined the king and queen at their wedding reception at a fairground outside the country’s most sacred monastery fortress, where a slate of dancers performed traditional routines for the new couple. “I have longed for this celebration, and here it is,” said Pema Gyeltshen, a nearby villager, as he watched the dancing. When the king, who has a reputation as a down-to-earth and accessible leader, was asked how it felt to be married, he asked his questioner if she was married. When she said no, he responded: “It’s great; you should try it yourself.” The celebrations began at 8:20 a.m. — a time set by royal astrologers — when the king, wearing the royal yellow sash over a golden robe with red flowers and multicolored boots, walked into the courtyard of the 17th century monastery in the old capital of Punakha and proceeded up the

A few minutes later, his 21-year-old bride, the daughter of an airline pilot, arrived at the end of a procession of red-robed monks and flag bearers across a wooden footbridge over the wide, blue river beside the fort and followed him inside. Singers chanted songs of celebration amid the clanging of drums and the drone of long dhung trumpets. She wore a traditional wraparound skirt with a gold jacket with deep red cuffs. Inside, the nation’s top cleric, who presided over the wedding, performed a purification ceremony for the couple
in front of a massive 100-foot Thongdal tapestry of Bhutan’s 17th-century founder, the monk-king Zhabdrung. The pair then proceeded to the temple for a ceremony broadcast live on national television, save for a few minutes when the king, his father and the cleric, known as the Je Khenpo, entered the sacred tomb of Zhabdrung, where only they are allowed. The king’s father then gave the bride an array of five colored scarves representing blessings from the tomb. Hesitantly, she then approached the king’s throne with a golden chalice filled with the ambrosia of eternal life. They held it
together for several seconds and then he drank. The king, wearing his red crown, with an image of the protector raven rising from the top, came down from the throne in front of a giant golden Buddha statue and placed a smaller crown on her head. After she took her place as queen, the newly married couple was feted by monks playing deep tones on traditional trumpets and pounding drums. The Je Khenpo presented them a series of gifts — a mirror, curd, grass, a conch — representing blessings for longevity, wisdom, purity and other well wishes.

RAJ RAJARATNAM, co-founder of Galleon Group LLC, leaves Federal Court after his sentencing on Thursday in New York.
Hedge fund exec gets 11 years for insider trading By Larry Neumeister Associated Press
NEW YORK — Raj Rajaratnam, the hedge fund billionaire at the center of the biggest insider-trading case in U.S. history, was sentenced Thursday to 11 years behind bars — the stiffest punishment ever handed out for the crime. “His crimes and the scope of his crimes reflect a virus in our business culture that needs to be eradicated,” U.S. District Judge Richard J. Holwell said. “Simple justice requires a lengthy sentence.” The 54-year-old founder of the Galleon Group hedge fund was also fined $10 million and ordered to forfeit $53.8 million in what the judge said were illicit profits from trading on confidential corporate information. Prosecutors said Rajaratnam made as much as $75 million in all by cultivating a network of friends, former classmates and other tipsters at various companies and investment firms who supplied him with early word on such things as mergers and earnings announcements. In return, they received kickbacks or a chance to get in on the action. Among the companies he profited from were Google, IBM, Hilton Hotels, Intel, Advanced Micro Devices and Goldman Sachs. The sentencing was the last major act in a series of prosecutions that followed Rajaratnam’s 2009 arrest. More than two dozen people were arrested in the investigation, nicknamed Perfect Hedge, and all were convicted. The scandal — along with the 2008 financial meltdown and the Wall Street abuses it exposed — stoked populist anger in the U.S. and complaints that the stock market is a sucker’s game, rigged by insiders. The judge called it “an assault on the free markets that are a fundamental element of our democratic society. There may not be readily identifiable victims, but when the playing field is not level, the integrity of the marketplace is called into question and the public suffers.” Asked at his sentencing if he would like to speak, Rajaratnam responded: “No,
thank you, Your Honor.” The Sri Lanka-born Rajaratnam was ordered to report to a yet-to-be-designated prison Nov. 28. His lawyers asked that he be sent to the medical facility at the federal prison in North Carolina where Bernard Madoff is serving his 150-year sentence. He has advanced diabetes and needs a kidney transplant, according to the judge. The longest previous sentence in an insider-trading case was 10 years, given twice before, most recently last month to one of Rajaratnam’s co-defendants. But Rajaratnam’s punishment fell far short of the 24 and a half years prosecutors had asked for. Federal prosecutor Reed Brodsky said insider trading “makes a mockery of the principle that no one participant has an unfair advantage through thievery.” He said Rajaratnam corrupted at least 20 fellow traders and insiders, and at least 19 public companies were victims of his crimes. “Today you sentence a man who is the modern face of illegal insider trading,” Brodsky told the judge. “He is arguably the most egregious insider trader to face sentencing in a courthouse in the United States.” The judge said Rajaratnam deserved some leniency, noting his poor health and his charitable work in helping the homeless and the victims of Sept. 11 and natural disasters. Rajaratnam’s lawyers had argued for 6 and a half to nine years. Defense attorney Terence Lynam asked the judge to show compassion because of Rajaratnam’s illnesses, saying: “He does not deserve to die in prison.” Galleon was one of the world’s largest hedge funds before it collapsed in the wake of Rajaratnam’s arrest, and the case against him and his cohorts was one of the most closely watched insider-trading scandals since the Ivan Boesky and Michael Milken cases in the 1980s. Boesky was a stock speculator who pleaded guilty and served two years in prison. Milken, known as the junk bond king, pleaded guilty to securities violations in 1989, served 22 months and paid a $200 million fine.
Experts offer advice to those worried about vitamin safety By Marilynn Marchione Associated Press
Two studies this week raised gnawing worries about the safety of vitamin supplements and a host of questions. Should anyone be taking them? Which ones are most risky? And if you do take them, how can you pick the safest ones? Vitamins have long had a “health halo.” Many people think they’re good for you and at worst might simply be unnecessary. The industry calls them an insurance policy against bad eating. But our foods are increasingly pumped full of them already. Even junk foods and drinks often are fortified with nutrients to give them a healthier profile, so the risk is rising that we’re getting
too much. Add a supplement and you may exceed the upper limit. “We’re finding out they’re not as harmless as the industry might have us believe,” said David Schardt, a nutritionist at the consumer group Center for Science in the Public Interest. This week, a study of nearly 40,000 older women found a slightly higher risk of death among those taking dietary supplements, including multivitamins, folic acid, iron and copper. It was just an observational study, though, not a rigorous test. Another study found that men taking high doses of vitamin E — 400 units a day — for five years had a slightly increased risk of prostate cancer. As many as one-third of Americans take vitamins and

Schardt adds: “It’s virtually impossible to overdose on the nutrients in food.” Some folks may need more of certain nutrients and should talk with their doctors about supplements: ! Postmenopausal women regarding calcium and vitamin D to protect bones. ! Women planning on pregnancy regarding folate, or folic acid, to prevent birth defects. ! People over age 50 and vegans who may need vitamin B12. “As we get older, a number of us no longer produce enough acid in the stomach to extract the B12 in food,” Schardt explained. ! Pregnant women, who may need extra iron. ! Breastfed infants and possibly other infants concerning vitamin D.

People ages 1 to 70 should get 600 international units a day, older folks 800 units. If you do need a supplement, beware: Quality varies.
