Protesters ready for long occupation of South Park

Mom was drunk when K.C. baby vanished ——

Prominent attorney hired to represent parents KANSAS CITY, MO. (AP) — The mother of a missing Kansas City baby said Monday that she was drunk on the night her daughter disappeared, may have blacked out and actually last saw the child hours before the time she originally told police she checked on her. The revelations came hours before a New York attorney best known for defending Joran Van der Sloot, the Dutch man suspected in the 2005 disappearance of Natalee Holloway in Aruba, said he had been hired to represent parents Deborah Bradley and Jeremy Irwin. The couple reported their Lisa Irwin 10-month-old daughter missing Oct. 4 after Irwin returned from working a night shift and found the front door unlocked, the house lights blazing, a window tampered with and the baby gone. Bradley and their two sons were asleep elsewhere in the home. Nick Krug/Journal-World Photos

Consolidation Mayor: Camp can stay as long as it’s peaceful group wants to reassess mission

By Alex Garrison

acgarrison@ljworld.com

For now at least, the occupation continues. A small, diverse group of activists, inspired by the national Occupy Wall Street protests that have cropped up this past month, have built an “Occupy Lawrence” camp in South Park. Their first rally — in front of US Bank, 900 Mass. — took place Oct 8. They’ve had tents pitched in the park since this past Saturday and, despite chillier weather and even a little rain Monday, they say they’ll continue to “occupy” indefinitely. The group obtained one 24-

hour permit to stay in the park from Saturday to Sunday. So, technically, camp members sleeping on-site Sunday and Monday nights violated a city ordinance — the park is closed from 11:30 p.m. to 8 a.m. But people involved say there have been no clashes with officials, save a polite request by parks and recreation workers to move the tents about 10 feet to accommodate tree maintenance. The bathrooms within the park remain open. Mayor Aron Cromwell says the city has no intention of kicking the occupiers out any time soon, at least so long as they continue to be peaceful.

“We’ll continue to do our best to work with the group,” Cromwell said. “They understand that they can’t have the park completely to themselves, and we understand that they want to get across their message of, well, I’m not exactly sure of what, but to voice their frustration.” “Legal liaison” Jennifer Dillon Christensen talked with Cromwell on the phone Monday afternoon. She said that the mood remains amicable, both within the group and between it and the city. That said, the protesters plan to remain in the park “until progress is made.” How they’ll define that progress remains unclear. But with

working groups — on media, donations, legal matters and recruitment — a voting system and even a social media campaign, this small offshoot of the movement does have its organization.

Who are they? Some are young, some are old, some are students, some are transient, some have fulltime jobs. In short, there’s not exactly one defining characteristic in them all. Ginny Cambron, who’s been organizing the group’s resources throughout the weekend, said that they’re Please see OCCUPY, page 2A

KU prof says men want more sex partners in recession By Andy Hyland ahyland@ljworld.com

A prolonged economic slump could mean more than just losses of material wealth; it could spark a desire in men to seek more sexual partners, a Kansas University researcher has found. Omri Gillath, associate professor of social psychology, said that men, when faced with an environment that threatens their survival, turn to a sexual strategy that maximizes the potential for reproduction. In his lab, he placed people in

situations and had them think about their own death, a condition that relates to low survivability conditions. Afterward, he showed the people images, including Gillath both sexual and nonsexual images. He measured their heart rates to indicate their level of arousal. Men’s rates of arousal increased after thinking about their own death. Other situations that also

mitted relationships begin to experience these kinds of feelings, it’s probably best to air it out with your current partner, which could serve to build the relationship even further. “It’s not a new excuse for guys to have sex,” Gillath said. The desires may be there, but “at the end of the day, it’s your decision.” The research will be published in the Journal of Experimental Social Psychology in November. — Higher education reporter Andy Hyland can be reached at 832-6388.

threaten survivability could have similar effects, such as going off to fight in a war. “All of these signs would push you towards more partners and more sex,” Gillath said. His findings are based in part on the established “life history theory,” which has helped explain low birth rates in richer countries and the lower age of first sexual encounters in poorer neighborhoods. Gillath likened a worsening economic situation to living on the savannah when food and water become scarce. He said that if men in com-

The Lawrence school board’s new majority soon will get a chance to either confirm or alter the direction of a pivotal advisory committee, one charged with recommending a plan that would close either two or three elementary schools within the next three years. Members of the Central and East Lawrence Elementary School Consolidation Working Group will be posing questions next week to board members, seeking clarity regarding the volunteer group’s stated mission: “Recommend a community plan for reducing the six elementary schools of Sunset Hill, Hillcrest, Pinckney, Cordley, SCHOOLS Kennedy and New York to four or three schools within the next two or three years.” That directive had come in April from a board that had four different members, and at the recommendation of another volunteer group that had been working with enrollment data a year old. Now, working group members figure that as times change, people change and numbers change, it might not be a bad idea to see whether the board’s overall thinking has changed. “We don’t want to throw the charge out the window, but we need to be mindful of our context and our reality,” said Leslie Newman, a member representing Hillcrest Please see GROUP, page 2A

School, where she has a child in school. “I don’t want to go way down the road and then have our recommendation be something that they’re not comfortable with.” Board members will get their chance to answer questions regarding three specific issues raised during the working group’s meeting Monday night: # Group members know they’re supposed to forward a recommendation that assumes passage of a bond issue that would finance upgrades, expansions or even new construction of elementary schools to make the system work efficiently and fairly; but what if a bond issue doesn’t pass? Must the working group come up with a plan for that, too? # The district has gained enrollment since the working group was formed, and all remaining elementary schools would be at 86 percent capacity this year if all portables were removed, or 83 percent with portables still in place. Is consolidation still favored, with elementary schools approaching capacity? # Would the board entertain the possibility of establishing “magnet” schools, as a potential alternative? “I think they’ve got great questions,” said Keith Diaz Moore, a board member who took office in July and attended Monday night’s meeting as

an observer. “It shows they understand the complexity of the problem. I’m encouraged that over the next month they will be able to seize the creative opportunity that’s presented to them. “It may just be possible to provide education in a better way than we are now.” Asking for direction will be members of a new “liaison” subcommittee, made up of one member from each of the seven school communities represented on the working group: Chuck Epp, from Cordley; Dennis Hill, from Hillcrest; Michelle Iwig-Harmon, from Woodlawn; Chris Lempa, from New York; Dawn Shew, from Kennedy; David Unekis, from Pinckney; and Daisy Wakefield, from Sunset Hill. Woodlawn is not on the list of schools considered for consolidation but has representatives on the working group. Subcommittee members plan to meet Wednesday night to discuss their pending presentation. They are scheduled to ask their questions during the next board meeting, which is set for 7 p.m. Monday at district headquarters, 110 McDonald Drive. “The crux of the question I would want to ask them is: How creative are you willing to let us be?” Epp said, after Monday night’s meeting. “Because the times demand creativity.” — Schools reporter Mark Fagan can be reached at 832-7188.

open to all walks of life. What brings them together, she said, was “a hope for a community that’s more unified and equal.”

What do they want? The group itself is still trying to figure that out. They have a website (occupylawrence.wordpress.com) where the main point of discussion appears to be highlighting and asking for change in the widening economic disparity, the main point of contention for the original New York protesters. Jason Phoenix, the appointed media representative, said that the main goal is “starting a conversation with the community about how corporate greed is destroying our environment and our humanity.” The occupy protests taking place across the country, he said, will, if nothing else, help build a generation that can be “future leaders.” “We’re building little governments of our own,” he said. “It’s training camps for future leaders who can go on to influence our country and help make things more fair.”

ed as far west as Butler and McPherson counties in recent months. Deer with EHD often have their tongues hanging out and have lesions on their tongues. Their hooves often fall off and they eventually head to water because of high fever. Cattle can catch EHD but it rarely kills them, and sheep can be vulnerable to the disease. The disease cannot be passed to humans or pets. Fox estimates some areas in northern and eastern Kansas may lose 25 to 30 percent of the deer herd this year. But many places in Kansas are losing only a few animals. “In some areas (in other states) they find more than 100 deer. Most of our employees haven’t found more than two or three together,” Fox said.

Insect-borne disease killing deer WICHITA (AP) — Deer in some parts of Kansas are dying from a disease spread by tiny insects that proliferated because of an extended drought, state wildlife officials said. The deer are being felled by epizootic hemorrhagic disease, or EHD, which is spread by midges, tiny insects that pass infected blood from one animal to another. Because of the drought, the deer are drinking from shallow, stagnant water, which is a perfect breeding ground for midges, The Wichita Eagle reported. “We had a guy in (Oct. 10) who’d found 13 dead deer in two sections,” said Lloyd Fox, Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks and Tourism big game program coordinator. “We’ve had them found from about all over the eastern one-third of the state.” It also has been document-

Latham, said he saw four deer, three that were trophysized bucks, thought to have died from the disease in southeast Butler County this month. EHD “is definitely going to have an effect on those who hunt mature bucks this year,” Whitehill said. Fox said the worst EHD outbreak in Kansas was about 1990 in north-central regions of the state. A few years later, the disease apparently killed a high percentage of the pronghorn antelope population in the Flint Hills. In western Kansas, where water is usually scarce, deer have developed immunities to the disease. Fox said temperatures cold enough to kill insects are the best way to fight the disease. And he said a good rain would help slow the disease because water is more plentiful and the deer spread out.

Fear of arrest Bradley told NBC she is scared her arrest would essentially end the police search and Lisa would never be found. “If they arrest me, people are going to stop looking for her and I’ll never know what happened,” Bradley said. She also said her two sons, ages 6 and 8, say they heard noises the night Lisa disappeared, but she doesn’t know whether they heard noises before they went to sleep or later in the night and she doesn’t want them involved in the investigation. The boys have been made available to police for interviews, Tacopina said.

Prisoner swap moves ahead

By John Milburn

The elaborate machinery of a prisoner swap deal between two bitter enemies swung into motion early today, as hundreds of Palestinians and one Israeli soldier prepared to return home in one of the most dramatic recent developments in the otherwise deadlocked Israel-Palestinian conflict. Before dawn today, the first 96 inmates were moved from a prison in the south to another in the West Bank, where they were later to be released, a spokesman for Israel’s Prisons Service said. The Israel-Hamas deal, to take place this morning, is going ahead despite criticism and court appeals in Israel against the release of 1,027 Palestinians for a single captured Armored Corps sergeant, Gilad Schalit, held by militants in Gaza since 2006. The exchange, negotiated through mediators because Israel and Hamas will not talk directly to each other, involves a delicate series of staged releases, each one triggering the next.

TOPEKA — A Kansas National Guard officer said Monday that future defense funding levels could affect the ability of the military to properly assist soldiers and families before, during and after deployments. Maj. Robert Stinson briefed the

Legislature’s Joint Committee on Kansas Security about programs and services for reserve soldiers, including access to mental health services. Most of the programs are funded through the federal Department of Defense. Stinson said as the number of deployments to Iraq and Afghanistan wane with those wars winding down, there is concern

that programs will be dismantled that have been established to assist veterans and prepare soldiers and families for the challenges they will face before and after combat. “If there is another war five years down the road and we lose all this, we are going to have to rebuild it,” Stinson said. “The challenges that we have aren’t

going to go away just because the deployments go away.” For example, he said most soldiers who suffer from the mental effects of war often don’t begin thinking of harming themselves for several months or years after they return and try to cope with the trauma.

Obama makes push for jobs bill on road Rolling through small Southern towns in a campaign-style bus, President Barack Obama on Monday pressed lawmakers back in Washington to start taking up pieces of his rejected jobs bill and mocked the Republicans who had shot it down in total. The Senate moved to vote soon on one part, a plan to help states hire teachers, but the proposal seemed doomed. Deep in the mountains of politically important North Carolina, Obama soaked up the region’s autumn beauty at the same time he assailed foes of his jobs legislation, accusing them of failing to listen to the public. Back at the Capitol, Senate Democrats announced they would act first on a single part of Obama’s plan, a longshot bid to help states hire teachers and police. A Senate vote could come as soon as the end of the week. If not, it would probably fall into November because the Senate plans to take a break next week, even as Obama urges quick action.

Kudzu-eating bugs threaten soybeans Kudzu — the “plant that ate the South” — has finally met a pest that’s just as voracious. Trouble is, the so-called “kudzu bug” is also fond of another East Asian transplant that we happen to like, and that is big money for American farmers: soybeans. “When this insect is feeding on kudzu, it’s beneficial,” Clemson University entomologist Jeremy Greene says as he stands in a field swarming with the brown, pea-sized critters. “When it’s feeding on soybeans, it’s a pest.” Like kudzu, which was introduced to the South from Japan in the late 19th century as a fodder and a way to stem erosion on the region’s worn-out farmlands, this insect is native to the Far East. And like the invasive vine, which “Deliverance” author James Dickey famously deemed “a vegetable form of cancer,” the kudzu bug is running rampant. Megacopta cribrari, as this member of the stinkbug family is known in scientific circles, was first identified near Atlanta in late October 2009. Since then, it has spread to most of Georgia and North Carolina, all of South Carolina, and several counties in Alabama.

Celebrity chefs will be serving dinner in Times Square, and more than 15,000 people are expected to attend a regional food festival in Savannah, Ga. While there isn’t anything quite so flashy here, Douglas County will have more than a dozen events throughout the next two weeks to celebrate Food Day. Haskell Indian Nations University is using Food Day to promote recognizing indigenous foods. It will have speakers, workshops and

Lawrence Memorial Hospital is hosting a kids-focused nutrition carnival, and the Raven Book Store will have a book reading. “There is so much to do this week, you can’t attend everything,” said Patty Metzler, a dietician at Lawrence Memorial Hospital who is the community coordinator for Lawrence’s Food Day activities. On Oct. 24, the Douglas County Food Council will release a report that looks at Douglas, Jefferson and Franklin counties’ food systems. The report examines how much money is spent on food, how much is produced and consumed in the region and the number of residents who live in “food deserts.” “It sets forth what kind of areas we have to focus on and what really needs attention,” said Eileen Horn, the sustainability coordinator for the city of Lawrence and Douglas County.

The startup is hiring one full-time biologist immediately and plans to hire additional scientists within the next year. The company’s focus is on how to make painHEALTH killers similar to morphine, oxycodone and hydrocodone, but without harsh side effects. “We’re trying to take the strongest, most potent painkillers and eliminate the side effects so they’re more like Advil or Tylenol,” Prisinzano said. Mencuro becomes the 11th tenant for the 14-month old incubator system. The incubator houses nine tenants at its main facility on West Campus and two at its expansion facility at Bob Billings and Wakarusa Drive. The incubator is a partnership among KU, the city, the county, the chamber, the local bioscience authority and the state bioscience authority. The strong amount of tenant activity has led to expansion plans for the incubator. The city has put $500,000 in its 2012 budget to kickstart an effort to build more space on West Campus. The project likely will take $7 million to $8 million to complete. — City reporter Chad Lawhorn can be reached at 832-6362.

Food CONTINUED FROM PAGE 3A

The number of events from different groups highlights just how much the community has rallied around the local food movement in recent years and the many reasons it is being supported. “I’m so proud of the people around here who are so involved,” Metzler said. The intent of Food Day is to take a holistic view of the food system, Kastleman said. “Food Day is a great opportunity for people to advocate and work together on not just one aspect, but trying to fix the entire American food system. To improve it, to make it more healthy, sustainable and affordable for everybody,” Kastleman said. Food Day is founded on six principles: ! Reduce diet-related diseases by promoting safe, healthy foods. ! Support sustainable farms and limit subsidies to big agribusiness. ! Expand access to food and alleviate hunger. ! Protect the environment and animals by reforming factory farms. ! Promote health by curbing junk-food marketing to children. ! Support fair conditions for food and farm workers. Organizers hope those principles will continue to be promoted during Food Days years from now. “Imagine if 30 years from now it is as big as Earth Day. It is exciting to be in on the ground floor,” Horn said.

Veterans CONTINUED FROM PAGE 3A

Legislators were concerned about the coordination of programs and services and whether adequate access was in place for soldiers and families and how the responsibilities for meeting veterans’ needs could shift from the federal to state level as defense spending is cut. “We can be looking at some significant cuts at the federal level,” said Senate Majority Leader Jay Emler, a Lindsborg Republican. Stinson said the Kansas National Guard was working with several partners, including the state Department of Social and Rehabilitation Services, to make sure veterans were receiving information about services and access to care. The Kansas National Guard’s programs include preparing soldiers and families for the mental health challenges brought on by combat, financial implications and impact on relationships. Stinson said the programs are aimed at being proactive before soldiers deploy for combat and making them available to commanders to inform their units. Legislators said they wanted to make sure that state agencies were assisting the National Guard and other reserve forces in reaching members of the military who live in rural areas of Kansas. The concern is that those individuals will not readily have access to services in their communities, or broadband connections to get help online. Sen. Tim Owens said he had concerns about future federal and state spending and what that would mean to veterans who have serious needs, including mental health treatment. Owens, an Overland Park Republican, was particularly concerned about cuts made by SRS and what impact they would have on state and local programs. “We need to take care of troops when they are home. We cannot abandon them at the state level when they come home,” Owens said.

Q:

I’ve heard rumors the Wakarusa Valley School building, now home to the Lawrence Virtual School, is being sold to become a museum. Is this true?

A:

No, the building, which became home to the virtual school this year, is not being sold to become a museum. “The Wakarusa Valley School building continues to house the Lawrence Virtual School,” said Julie Boyle, communications director for the Lawrence school district. “In addition, the district allows parts of the building to be used by community groups. This includes an agreement with the Clinton Lake Historical Society to display some collections from the Wakarusa River Valley Museum in one of the rooms there on a year-byyear basis.”

INJURY ACCIDENTS • A 23-year-old Maryland man was injured in a rollover accident early Monday on Interstate 70 near the Lecompton interchange and flown to a Kansas City-area hospital, according to the Kansas Turnpike Authority. According to an accident report, Peter Raymond Robie, of Cambridge, Md., was entering the westbound lanes of the turnpike from the entrance ramp in a 2008 Ford pickup truck. As he steered back into the right lane, the truck drifted off the road and struck a delineator post. The accident occurred at 12:30 a.m. Robie overcorrected his steering of the vehicle, and the truck rolled onto its top and slipped backward into a guardrail and later into the right shoulder on its top, according to authorities. According to the report, Robie was not wearing a seat belt, and he was ejected from the vehicle. He landed in the right lane. Master Trooper Jeff Heryford said Monday night that investigators believed Robie fell asleep at the wheel.

He was flown via helicopter ambulance to Kansas University Hospital in Kansas City, Kan. Heryford said that Robie remained in surgical intensive care Monday night with several head injuries. • Two Franklin County deputies on Saturday morning rescued a Pennsylvania man from a pond after he suffered a medical condition prior to an accident on Interstate 35. Sheriff Jeff Curry said Deputy Tim Jones and Deputy Carl Bentley responded to a crash involving a car and a semi-trailer at 11:23 a.m. Saturday, and they discovered the car was in a pond on property of 2405 Kentucky Road. The vehicle was sinking in the mud, and water was up to the driver’s neck. Bentley used a baton to break the window in the car, and Bentley and Jones were able to extricate the man from the vehicle as the water was going over the man’s head. Curry said the driver, Richard Crook II, who was on his way to Ottawa to attend a wedding was treated and later released from the hospital, and officers believe Crook suffered a medical condition before the accident. • A 57-year-old Kansas City, Kan., woman was injured in a crash between two motorcycles Friday evening on U.S. Highway 40 near the intersection with the South Lawrence Trafficway west of Lawrence. Sgt. Steve Lewis, a Douglas County Sheriff’s spokesman, said Vicky Petty fell down with her motorcycle as Matthew Nutt, 48, also of Kansas City, Kan., had turned in front of her at 5:35 p.m. Friday in the westbound lane of U.S. Highway 40. They were traveling in a group of seven motorcyclists, Lewis said. Officers listed contributing factors to the crash as a glare from the sun that affected Nutt’s vision, driver inattentiveness and making an improper turn. • Eldon Barrett, 74, Parker, who was injured last Thursday in a motorcycle accident south of Tonganoxie on U.S. Highway 24-40, was in serious condition Monday afternoon at KU Hospital. • A condition update was not available Monday from KU Hospital on Kathy Miner, 58, of Hiawatha, who was injured in a two-vehicle crash Saturday night on the South Lawrence Trafficway near the Lecompton interchange on the Kansas Turnpike. Mike Miner, 52, also of Hiawatha, died in the crash. The Journal-World does not print accounts of all police reports filed. The newspaper generally reports: • Burglaries, only with a loss of $1,000 or more, unless there are unusual circumstances.

Journal-World seeks info about Brownback tax policy group By Scott Rothschild srothschild@ljworld.com

TOPEKA — The Lawrence Journal-World has filed a request under state law to Gov. Sam Brownback’s administration for information about a task force that meets secretly and is preparing a tax policy recommendation for Brownback Brownback. In an Oct. 11 email, the Journal-World requested access to or copies of minutes, agendas and policy papers of the task force. The Brownback administration wrote in a letter dated Oct. 12, and received in the mail Oct. 15, that it may take up to seven weeks to respond to the newspaper’s request. “Due to the extensive nature of your request, additional time will be needed to search files, to determine the existence of any such records, to contact personnel who may have possession of said requested records, to determine the applicability of any exceptions to the Open Records Act, and to determine the cost of producing the copies which can be provided pursuant to the Open Records Act. Therefore, the Department will communicate with you not later than November 30, 2011, regarding its response to your request,” states the letter signed by Christy Weiler, records custodian with the Kansas Department of Revenue. Kansas Department of Revenue Secretary Nick Jordan is heading the effort to give recommendations to Brownback by the end of the year. Jordan has said a task force is near completion of

its task. When Jordan’s office was asked to provide names of those serving on the task force and other details, the office provided little information. Jeannine Koranda, a spokeswoman for the agency, said senior Revenue Department staff members Richard Cram, head of policy and research, and Steve Stotts, director of taxation, have been consulted. She said Republican leaders of the House and Senate tax committees had been consulted. But she declined to name any business people who are working with the task force. The only person outside state government who has been named to the task force working on a recommendation for Brownback is Arthur Laffer, who had served as a key economic adviser to President Reagan. Laffer espouses cutting taxes for corporations and top-income earners as a way to grow the economy through increased jobs. Laffer, who is being paid $75,000 as a consultant on the Kansas tax proposal, helped write the latest edition of “Rich States, Poor States,” for the American Legislative Exchange Council. Brownback wrote the forward to the ALEC report. Last week, Senate President Steve Morris, R-Hugoton, said he would form a bipartisan committee, including public members, to study options for reducing taxes. “Right now, there are a lot of ideas being floated around, but what they all seem to be missing is citizen input,” Morris said. “This isn’t something that should be done behind closed doors by a bunch of bureaucrats.”

Permit for shooting range to be mulled Douglas County commissioners plan to consider a permit for a police shooting range just north of Lone Star Lake. The Fraternal Order of Police would receive a conditional use permit for COUNTY COMMISSION its shooting range at 768 E. 661 Diagonal Road.

Board approves 2012 budget, plans to make some fee increases By Karrey Britt kbritt@ljworld.com

The Lawrence-Douglas County Health Department board on Monday evening approved a $3.17 million budget for 2012, up from $2.94 million in 2011. During discussion of the budget, director Dan Partridge said the health department anticipates it will lose a $37,708 Local Environment Protection grant in July. To help make up for the grant, the health department plans to raise fees for items that fall under enforcement of the sanitary code and pool licenses. Among the fee increases set to go into effect Jan. 1, along with the number of activities projected in 2012, are: ! Initial septic site evaluation — $135, up from $75; 22. ! Septic repair permit — $265, up from $165; 25. ! Septic installer’s license — $100, up from $35; 30. ! Room addition inspection — $140, up from $75; 11. ! Pool license — $165, up from $160; 76. The increases are expected to net about $7,000. Partridge said he doesn’t expect any changes in the department’s services during 2012. The department also will be up about four full-time positions in 2012, compared with a year earlier. The budget included a 1 percent cost of living adjustment for employees along with the possibility for a 2 to 4 percent merit salary increase. Besides the environment grant, the health department is not foreseeing any significant cuts in funding. “Sometimes it makes me nervous that we are bucking the trend, but we have been on a tight rein. We have tried to control costs for a lot of years so I think we reacted — Statehouse reporter Scott Rothschild can sooner than some other agenbe reached at 785-423-0668. cies in the economy,” Partridge said.

Abuse of disabled may be part of theft scheme By Maryclaire Dale and Patrick Walters Associated Press

PHILADELPHIA — The landlord of the apartment building at first thought a circuit breaker had tripped when he went to the basement Saturday and found all the lights were out. Then he realized all six bulbs had been removed, and he heard dogs barking inside a boiler room, its door chained shut. He removed the chain, stepped into the dank, foulsmelling room and lifted a pile of blankets. Several sets of human eyes stared back at him. Turgut Gozleveli had stumbled upon four mentally disabled adults, all weak and malnourished, and one chained to the boiler. He may have also stumbled upon a vast scheme — stretching from Philadelphia to Norfolk, Va.; West Palm Beach, Fla., and Texas — to steal the Social Security disability checks of defenseless and vulnerable people, authorities said. Philadelphia police on Sat-

urday arrested three adults staying in an apartment upstairs, including the person accused of being the ringleader, Linda Ann Weston, who had been convicted of murder in a 1981 starvation death. Detectives also found dozens of ID cards, powerof-attorney forms and other documents in the apartment, suggesting the theft scheme involved more than just the four captives. “Without a doubt. This is just the beginning of this investigation,” Lt. Ray Evers said Monday. “We think she’s been doing this for quite some time.” How long, how much money the scheme brought in, how the disabled were deceived and how many people in all were victimized are still unclear, investigators said. The FBI has joined the investigation. Weston, 51, was charged with kidnapping, false imprisonment and other offenses, with bail set at $2.5 million. Also arrested and jailed were the man she described as her boyfriend, 50-year-

old Eddie “the Reverend Ed” Wright, and 47-year-old Gregory Thomas. “Talk about preying on the weak and weary,” Evers said. “You can’t get any lower than this person.” As of Monday, the defendants did not appear to have lawyers. They couldn’t be reached for contact in jail. The victims, a woman and three men, were found in a crawlspace that reeked of urine and was too shallow for an adult to stand up. There were mattresses and blankets, but the only food found was a container of orange juice. The adults shared their space with three dogs. Gozleveli called police, suspecting they were squatters, then watched as officers and ambulance workers helped them up the steps to the street in a working-class section of the city’s Tacony neighborhood. The victims, ages 29 to 41, had the mental capacity of 10-year-olds, along with some physical disabilities, authorities said. One could barely see.

Three of them — Tamara Breeden, Derwin McLemire and Herbert Knowles — told KYW-TV on Monday that they were mistreated by Weston, Wright and Thomas. Breeden, 29, told the TV station that she was hit on her head and showed where she said some of her teeth were knocked out. McLemire, 41, said he met Weston through an online dating service and tried to escape but didn’t get away “so they got me.” Knowles, 40, was shackled to the boiler and said he was hit by one of the two men arrested with Weston. Neighbors said the defendants and the basement captives had arrived in an SUV from West Palm Beach, Fla., about two weeks ago, though it does not appear the victims spent the entire time in the basement. Since the arrests, police have slowly and patiently been trying to elicit information from the captives. All four were treated at hospitals and placed with social service agencies.

BUSINESS AT A GLANCE

Notable ! The maker of the struggling BlackBerry tried to soothe tens of millions of frustrated customers Monday, offering more than $100 worth of free software to each one and giving some a month of technical support as compensation for last week’s massive outage. But some BlackBerry users and experts cast doubt on whether the freebies from Research In Motion would be enough to keep people from abandoning the tarnished brand in favor of more popular smartphones. The free software will be made available over the coming weeks on BlackBerry App World. The premium apps, which typically cost $5 to $15 each, include programs such as iSpeech Translator and the games “Bejeweled” and “Texas Hold’em Poker 2.” The offer runs until the end of the year. The free technical support will be available to corporate customers.

Citigroup earnings rise 74%, to $3.8B ————

By Pallavi Gogoi Associated Press

NEW YORK — Citigroup Inc.’s earnings rose 74 percent in the third quarter as more of its customers paid their bills on time, leading to lower losses from loans. An accounting gain also boosted income. It was the seventh straight quarter of income growth for Citi, the nation’s third-largest bank by assets. Citigroup was one of the biggest recipients of taxpayer support during the financial crisis. It received $45 billion in bailouts funds and was partly owned by the government until December 2010. The New York bank’s net income rose 74 percent, to $3.8 billion, due to lower losses from loans and an accounting gain related to the valuation of the bank’s own ! Cellphone companies debt.

News comes as Occupy Wall Street moves into 2nd month income inequality and demands for higher taxes on the wealthy. CEOs like Pandit are prime targets. On Saturday, two dozen people were arrested after they entered a Citibank branch in New York and refused to leave. Banks like Citi have benefited as Americans have improved their financial health, saving more and paying off their credit card debt on time. Citi’s losses from bad loans fell 41 percent during the quarter to $4.5 billion as defaults fell on Citi-branded cards. That allowed Citi to add $1.4 billion to its earnings from credit reserves it had set aside earlier in anticipation of deeper losses. However, the bank’s ability to collect fees from raising interest rates on loans or from fees for late payments has decreased because of new regulations. That led to a 9 percent drop in revenue at its North American consumer business. Rival Wells Fargo & Co., which also released its results Monday, took a similar hit to its credit card fee income due to new banking rules. Citi said a new regulation has also changed its plans for its private-label credit card unit, which issues cards in partnership with retail stores. Citi had said it was planning to either sell or reduce the size of the unit. The bank reversed course after noticing that customers are using retailer-issued cards

Rental teeth

Initiatives create own voting mischief By Michael Smerconish The Philadelphia Inquirer

Over-occupancy cases still will be hard to prove, but local landlords now face a stiffer penalty when a violation is confirmed.

S

omewhere in Lawrence last night, it is a good bet that a sleeping resident was awakened by his neighbor’s stereo. Tonight, as families retire for the evening, it is certain that a parade of vehicles will flow to party houses that can make neighborhood streets resemble a used car lot. Tomorrow as the sun rises, many homeowners will be greeted not by a glorious sunrise but by the litter left from tonight’s party. For some Lawrence residents, this is the cycle of life on a weekly, if not nearly daily, basis. In Lawrence, residents really never know when their youthful partying days are over. They could return at any moment, depending on who moves into the house next door. City commissioners are to be applauded for attempting to break this cycle. The commission recently approved a new policy that would allow the rental license of a single-family home to be revoked if it violates the city’s occupancy code twice within a 24-month period. Neighbors applauded the new policy because violations of the occupancy code — which prohibits more than three unrelated people from living in a single-family home — often lead to many neighborhood problems. It is an issue that deserves the commission’s continued attention. The 2010 U.S. Census found Lawrence to have grown far more slowly than city officials expected. If those numbers are correct, one cause for the slowdown may be a feeling by families that Lawrence is a less desirable place to live than other communities in the area. One hopes that Lawrence’s new rental regulations will begin to improve the livability of many city neighborhoods. There are reasons, however, to question whether they will. Landlords still must be found guilty in court of violating the occupancy code, and proving such a violation is difficult. Technically, the city’s new policy may allow city inspectors to make an administrative finding and revoke the license before a court makes a ruling on an occupancy case, but revoking a rental license before a court has spoken on the issue would seem to open the city up to significant financial liability if a court doesn’t end up agreeing with the city’s finding. On the positive side, the new regulation provides for some serious consequences once the city proves its case. The city should look at new ways to prove over-occupancy. Perhaps the city should work more closely with tenants — the tenants who actually are living illegally in these houses. Each May, thousands of students move out of apartments in Lawrence. Some are unhappy with their landlords for a variety of reasons. Some of those unhappy tenants likely have violated the occupancy law and probably have hard evidence of the violation. They may be willing to share that evidence with the city, if they knew the city would not seek to punish them. It may sound distasteful, but it would get at the heart of the problem, which is a small group of landlords who flout the law. The idea is worthy of consideration. After all, what goes on in overcrowded Lawrence neighborhoods is not only distasteful, but also is dangerous to residents and the city’s future. LAWRENCE

That there is a nationwide effort under way to move the goalposts for the 2012 presidential election is undeniable. The various initiatives have one thing in common: Each would hinder President Obama’s re-election. Coincidence? I think not. Pursuant to new rules, several states will now require photo IDs or proof of citizenship from voters (and in some cases, from those registering to vote). Some are making it more difficult to carry out voter-registration drives. Others will reduce popular early or absentee voting opportunities. In Pennsylvania, pending legislation would convert the presidential election process from a winner-take-all approach to a proportional one. If the proposed system had been in place in 2008, Obama would have had a net gain of just one electoral vote, as opposed to the 21 he did earn. I recently interviewed the president and asked him about the contemplated change here and the other efforts across the country. “With respect to Pennsylvania, the people of Pennsylvania will ultimately decide how they want to allocate their electoral votes, and I’ll leave that to them,” he said. “I will say that my big priority is making sure that as many people are participating in our democracy as possible. Some of these moves in some of the other states that we’ve seen — trying to make it tougher to vote, restricting ballot access, making it hard on seniors, making it hard

Still, the question is whether these changes are truly contemplated to rein in misbehavior, or to bank on a few, sporadic reports of misconduct to mask an effort to suppress the president’s vote.”

on young people — I think that’s a big mistake.” The nonpartisan Brennan Center for Justice at New York University’s School of Law has calculated how big that mistake could be. In a report issued last month, the center found that in states that have chosen to require IDs or proof of citizenship, restricted voter-registration efforts and reduced early voting will account for 171 electoral votes — 63 percent of the total 270 needed to win the White House. Taken together, the center has estimated that more than 5 million voters could be affected. How significant is that? In 2000, the popular-vote margin between George W. Bush and Al Gore was 543,895, while Bush won over John Kerry by 3,012,166 votes four years later. These moves are largely unprecedented, according to Michael Waldman, the Brennan Center’s executive director. “At the very least, they mark the most significant step backward on voting in several decades,” he said. “Throughout the past century, we have steadily increased access to the ballot. This is the first time I’m aware of during

that time that states have moved decisively to make it harder for many people to vote.” Who stands to suffer most? According to the report, young people, minorities, and low-income voters — essentially the constituencies most responsible for the president’s election — will be most affected. Consider the impact on minority voters in just one swing state, Florida, where the report notes that African Americans and Hispanics “are more than twice as likely to register to vote through community-based voter registration drives as white voters.” A quarter of the Sunshine State’s African-American voters, meanwhile, don’t have a valid photo ID that they would need to cast a ballot. The report continued: “New restrictions on early voting will also have their biggest impact on people of color. Florida ended early voting on the last Sunday before Election Day. In the 2008 general election in Florida, 33.2 percent of those who voted early on the last Sunday before Election Day were AfricanAmerican and 23.6 percent were Hispanic, whereas AfricanAmericans constituted just 13.4 percent of all early voters for all early voting days, and Hispanics just 11.6 percent.” Some will argue that shenanigans on Election Day do indeed take place and warrant rule changes. “Vote early and vote often” is more than a joking refrain in certain neighborhoods. Still, the question is whether these changes are truly contemplated to rein in misbehavior, or to bank on

a few, sporadic reports of misconduct to mask an effort to suppress the president’s vote. I can’t help but think of the now-infamous Election Day 2008 incident outside the old Richard Allen Homes in Philadelphia. Recall that two members of the New Black Panther Party stationed themselves in front of the polling place there, which is in the fourth voting division of the 14th Ward. That they were up to no good I have no doubt. But was it their intention to suppress the votes of those who would support John McCain? I seriously doubt it. This seemed more like a stunt to get a realityTV show. Consider that these two men selected a voting division in which 84 of the 1,535 voters registered were Republicans. Not exactly a locale where an African-American running for president would seem to need their help. I think the Civil Rights Division of the Justice Department should have reviewed and prosecuted that case. But these sorts of one-offs are hardly worth the conspiracy theories that have relentlessly bounded across the Internet since November 2008. Nor are they grounds for the scope of electoral changes being implemented across the country. “It all comes at a time when there should be consensus, commonsense steps to make it easier for people to vote and have their ballots accurately counted,” Brennan noted. — Michael Smerconish writes for The Philadelphia Inquirer.

25 YEARS AGO

IN 1986

Douglas County Clerk Patty Jaimes reported this morning that 38,119 county residents had registered to vote in the Nov. 4 statewide general election. Of those currently registered, 13,775 were members of the Republican Party, 9,321 were Democrats, and 15,023 were registered as unaffiliated.

From the Lawrence Daily Journal-World for Oct. 18, 1911: “‘Every person in the state of Kansas who hunts rabbits must have a license.... YEARS or lay himself open to the law.’ That was AGO Prof. L. L. Dyche, state fish and game IN 1911 warden, talking this morning to a Journal-World reporter. The big season for hunting rabbits is just at hand, says Prof. Dyche, and although the law for licenses for killing rabbits went into effect last March, there was no urgent necessity for enforcing it until the present time.” “Under instructions from the department at Washington the local post office is sending out blanks to every rural route patron ... asking that the name of every member of the family, old and young, be sent in for guidance of the postal employees. No rural directory has been made of the patrons of the Lawrence office for several years and it is badly needed in order that rural mail be delivered promptly and correctly.” — Compiled by Sarah St. John

PUBLIC FORUM

Unhealthy society To the editor: In my frequent walks over the Kaw River bridge, I have noticed that the overwhelming number of men bent over jackhammers all day long appear to be Hispanic and at least some don’t understand much English. It occurred to me that these are the very people Kris Kobach doesn’t want to vote. Not that they are necessarily undocumented. But they would likely just vote for politicians who would promise to fix more bridges so that they and their relatives could keep their back-breaking jobs at the expense of taxpayers like me. Bridges. We don’t need no stinking bridges! We should go back to paddling across the Kaw like the people — the ones our immigrant ancestors “obtained” this land from – might have done at minimal government expense. Of course, Kobach and Brownback only want to lead us back to the 1950s, when women and darkerskinned people were second-class citizens and there was prosperity – for some. Or we could look for leaders who will encourage us to pay our share for a fairer, smarter and more responsible society instead of the kind of fakers who hope we’ll just hide in front of our expensive, flatscreened TVs, blaming everybody else for problems we’re too selfish or too cheap to try to fix. Resources and workers are available. Only the will to decide to pay what’s necessary for a healthy society is lacking. Bert Haverkate-Ens, Lawrence

Retirement benefits To the editor: AARP members from across the country were in Washington last week to send a clear message to the “supercommittee” and

all members of Congress that seniors aren’t numbers. We aren’t line items in a budget. And we definitely aren’t pushovers. Right now, too few people outside Washington know that behind closed doors the supercommittee is considering proposals that would shift health care costs onto seniors and cut their Social Security checks. Instead of focusing on cutting waste and tax loopholes, they’re threatening our hard-earned Medicare and Social Security benefits. If Congress really wants to look at numbers, it should be looking at these: 478,138 Kansans rely on Social Security, including 314,968 retirees, 65,631 people with disabilities, 40,996 widows and widowers, 36,347 children and 20,196 spouses. Social Security pumps over $522 million into the Kansas economy each month, which is the total Social Security benefits received by Kansans in December 2009. And let’s get real. It isn’t as if the benefits of these programs are lavish. Even with these benefits, half of those aged 65 and older have an annual income of less than $18,500 per year. Today’s Medicare beneficiaries already must pay an average of $3,000 each year out of their own pockets for their medical expenses — and their outof-pocket share is rising every single year. We’ve talked to our members all across Kansas and it doesn’t matter if they’re Republicans, Democrats or Independents, they think it’s wrong for the supercommittee to cut the benefits they’ve worked for and depend on.

Missouri River flooding declared officially over OMAHA, NEB. (AP) — This year’s flooding on the Missouri River is officially over. That’s according to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, which said Monday that the river has fallen below flood stages from Fort Peck in Montana to St. Louis and water is off the levee system. Col. Anthony Hofmann, commander of the Kansas City district, said the corps was assessing the damage to the levees and dams to come up with a repair bill. He expects a report by mid-November. So far, $27.7 million has been set aside for repairs. The corps is waiting on funding by Congress for the rest. Early estimates show repairs could top $1 billion. The corps’ announcement follows a meeting of Missouri River governors where there was significant disagreement between Montana and downstream states over flood control.

Self: Johnson might ‘blow up’

SUNFLOWER SHOWDOWN

Wishing well

By Gary Bedore gbedore@ljworld.com

Elijah Johnson — who has not played significant minutes in his two-year Kansas University basketball career— enters 201112 as a candidate for a breakout season in the Jayhawk backcourt. “He has a chance to blow up. He does,” KU coach Bill Self said of the 6-foot-4 junior combo guard who averaged 3.4 points and 1.8 assists in 13.7 minutes a game his sophomore season. “He’s been very impressive to us (since end of last season). He’s been a kid for whatever reason has not quite put it all together yet. He needs to put it together for us to have our best chance. I think we haven’t seen a glimpse of what he can be. He’s one of the better allaround guards we’ve recruit- Johnson ed since we’ve been here. He just hasn’t had a chance to show it.” Johnson, who averaged 15.9 points and 4.8 assists a game his senior year at Las Vegas Cheyenne High, appreciates his coach remaining in his corner. “To hear him say I’m improved … that means a lot. It means I’m doing what this team needs me to do,” Johnson said. The area on which he has improved the most? “Being a leader,” Johnson said. “Really just that. I feel everything else just falls into place.” As far as on-court production, Johnson is KU’s leading returning three-point shooter. He hit 22 of 55 last year for 40 percent. “I guess that means I get to shoot a little bit, huh?” Johnson said with a smile. “I plan on knocking my shots down, making open shots.” His length and athleticism could prove beneficial on defense. “I just take it as ... I don’t even want to say as a challenge. I feel disrespected when someone tries to dribble and go past me nowadays,” Johnson said. “My attitude has changed. Someone scores on me, I take it personal. Even if you can’t see it on my face, I take it personal nowadays. I think coach Self put that in me.” Self has said the Jayhawks may run a bit more this year as they take advantage of a backcourt that includes ultra-athletic

JAMIE PURSLEY, RIGHT, POSES WITH KATIE CAPPS, director of operations for Kansas University’s women’s basketball team,’ during last year’s KansasMissouri “Think Pink” game. After battling breast cancer for five years, Pursley, who served as an honorary coach for that game, died on March 29. Before she passed, she expressed her wish to improve the infusion rooms at Lawrence Memorial Hospital’s Oncology Clinic, a desire that friends developed into “Jamie’s Wish.”

Saturday’s game backdrop for fundraiser By Matt Tait mtait@ljworld.com

When Jamie Pursley was in college, she cheered passionately for Kansas State, despised nearly everything about Kansas University and would never be caught for a second so much as thinking a positive thought about KU, the Jayhawks or Lawrence. Today, a little more than six months after Jamie passed away, her memory and kind heart have inspired a group of her closest friends, both Wildcats and Jayhawks, to come together in an attempt to raise $100,000 to renovate 15 infusion rooms at Lawrence Memorial Hospital’s Oncology Center. The idea did not belong to her friends. It was Jamie’s wish, and that phrase now is the driving force behind the quest to honor her memory while

Originally from Topeka, Jamie was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2006 while living out of state. After considering her options and hearing that the cancer had spread, she, her husband, Aaron, and their daughter, Kayden, decided to move closer to home, to Lawrence, to undergo chemotherapy treatment at LMH. Friends said the decision to relocate to Lawrence wasn’t easy for the diehard Wildcat fan married to a man from Manhattan. But they also said it turned out to be one of the best moves she ever made. That’s where the idea for Jamie’s Wish was born, several months after Jamie made the daily trek to LMH’s Oncology Center for hours of treatment.

Fans of the St. Louis Cardinals old enough to remember it don’t hesitate when asked to name their favorite World Series. The year was 1967, the opponent the Boston Red Sox. Flame-throwing Bob Gibson dominated the series that went seven games. Lawrence resident Joe Reitz was rooting for the other side, but all these years later, it’s Gibson he talks about most when reflecting on the two games he watched from his Fenway Park seat.

“I think that was the greatest World Series a pitcher ever had,” Reitz said. “How can you do any better? You can’t pitch more than three games, and he pitched every inning. The only one that would rival that was (Sandy) Koufax in the ’65 World Series.” Reitz, founder of the Lawrence affiliate of Family Promise, a non-profit organization that benefits families with children experiencing homelessness, saved each of his World

Revis, Jets keep Miami winless, 24-6 EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; For a team in turmoil, this was one therapeutic win. It certainly wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t pretty or convincing. But it did the job for Rex Ryan and his feuding New York Jets. Darrelle Revis ran back the first of his two interceptions 100 yards for a touchdown and the Jets did just enough to beat the winless Miami Dolphins, 24-6, on Monday

night and end a three-game losing streak. Mark Sanchez threw a 38-yard touchdown pass to Santonio Holmes and ran for another score as the Jets â&#x20AC;&#x201D; who called this a â&#x20AC;&#x153;must-winâ&#x20AC;? game â&#x20AC;&#x201D; capped a tough week by pulling out a victory and sending the Dolphins to their fifth straight loss. With the losses mounting and the season already on the brink

Chiefs eager to get back to work

Ryan even sent Holmes and Moore out as the captains for the pregame coin toss. Turns out, this game against the Dolphins (0-5) came at just the right time as the Jets got their season back on track. Next up for New York: the San Diego Chargers (4-1) on Sunday, with a chance to head into the bye on a high note.

TODAY

Several factors contributed to fatal crash The perfect storm: A high-banked oval crowded with the largest field of the season. Inexperienced or impatient drivers racing at more than 220 mph. Absolutely no room for error. What was supposed to be a season-ending showdown at Las Vegas Motor Speedway became instead a script for disaster Sunday: a fiery 15-car crash that killed popular two-time Indianapolis 500 winner Dan Wheldon and left the shaken auto racing community to deal with uncomfortable questions. The drivers knew the Las Vegas race was going to present challenges even before the season began. The sleek, open-wheel machines of IndyCar had not raced at the track since 2000, and the now-defunct Champ Car Series was last there in 2005. Some of the drivers had been there before, but many had not. None had raced an IndyCar there since the trackâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 2006 reconfiguration added â&#x20AC;&#x153;progressive bankingâ&#x20AC;? designed to increase side-by-side racing. So there was some initial fretting when second-year IndyCar chairman Randy Bernard announced a $5 million payday to any moonlighting driver who could win the race. Bernard had hoped to land a superstar or two from the fender-rubbing NASCAR circuit. Maybe even former Indianapolis 500 winner Juan Pablo Montoya. But nobody bit, despite interest from NASCAR driver Kasey Kahne, X-Games star Travis Pastrana and former CART champion Alex Zanardi. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hopefully theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll pick someone competent enough to drive those things because it is an IndyCar,â&#x20AC;? Penske driver Will Power said shortly after the prize was announced. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t rub panels. You rub wheels, and someoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going flying.â&#x20AC;? Kahne said Monday that team owner Rick Hendrick was against his participation, and Hendrick confirmed it. Kahneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lack of experience in an IndyCar made it virtually impossible for him to win. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The upside is winning that big purse, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not realistic to think you can go out there and beat the drivers who run the series full time,â&#x20AC;? Hendrick said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re incredibly talented, and it would be a significant investment of time and resources to be competitive. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d have to test and practice, and it would inevitably take focus away from what youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re trying to do (in NASCAR). â&#x20AC;&#x153;Not having the experience in those type of cars â&#x20AC;&#x201D; not having a feel for them â&#x20AC;&#x201D; increases the odds of something happening (on the track). We have a lot of commitments, and I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think it made sense to create a distraction or take a chance.â&#x20AC;? That left only Wheldon, winner of 14 races on ovals in IndyCar, including the Indy 500 in May, to be eligible for the $5 million prize. Bernard made that ruling because the 33-year-old Englishman lost his job at the end of last season, put together a one-race deal for the Indy 500 and had turned down offers from less-competitive teams. A lot of other drivers wanted to be in the race, too. It led to 34 entries in the field. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one car more than the Indy 500, five more than the race two weeks ago at Kentucky, and eight more than IndyCar had in Japan last month. Who were these new drivers? Men and women without much experience at IndyCarâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s top level.

KANSAS CITY, MO. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Todd Haley wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have changed the Kansas City Chiefsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; bye week for any other point this season. Not any sooner, not any later. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll find out in a hurry whether it truly came at the right time. The Chiefs were among the teams with an early bye for the second straight year, getting a week off after just five games. The first two were blowout losses to Buffalo and Detroit, but the Chiefs had shown encouraging signs in a narrow loss to San Diego and two straight wins. It was enough momentum for many to assume the Chiefs would just as soon keep playing, rather than sit around watching the Oakland Raiders, the team theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll play Sunday. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I do know from a number of guys that the bye came at the right time, as far as feeling a little better physically,â&#x20AC;? Haley said before a light walkthrough Monday. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have pushed the bye to some other time if we were given the option.â&#x20AC;? The Chiefs carried a similar bit of positive feeling into last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s week off, when they were riding high after three straight wins to start the season. Kansas City came back and lost 19-9 in a lackluster performance at Indianapolis, then lost 35-31 at Houston. The Chiefs also lost twice more in the next four weeks before figuring things out in time to rattle off three straight wins and eventually wrap up the AFC West title. Haley said the approach to the bye week changed slightly from last year, though he wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t go into great detail. Some of that had to do with new rules in the collective bargaining agreement that requires teams to ensure players get four consecutive days off, two of which must be the weekend. After a light walkthrough Monday, Haley said the Chiefs would get back to their normal routine. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Last year we came out of the bye and went and played a real good Indianapolis team and felt like we had multiple opportunities to win that game,â&#x20AC;? Haley said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know if the bye week had something to do with that. I felt very good about the way we prepared.â&#x20AC;? The biggest advantage of the bye week was a chance to get healthy. The Chiefs had been forced to adapt on the fly after losing tight end Tony Moeaki, Pro Bowl safety Eric Berry and All-Pro running back Jamaal Charles in successive weeks. Their respective replacements each bring a different set of skills to the field, so the coaching staff has been spending about as much time adapting to their own personnel as theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve spent worrying about the other team. The week off gave the Chiefs a better chance to assess Jackie Battle at running back, Sabby Piscitelli and Jon McGraw at safety, and whether Leonard Pope and Jake Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Connell can give the Chiefs any kind of pass-catching ability out of the tight end position. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I feel like we know a lot more about our team, which is normal,â&#x20AC;? Haley said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You have five games under your belt and we were able to do a bunch of research and study internally.â&#x20AC;? Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what the coaches did. Most of the players skipped town, some heading to their alma maters to watch some college football and others simply heading home for the long weekend. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s always good to get away,â&#x20AC;? linebacker Derrick Johnson said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;get your head out of football a little bit. I was traveling back Sunday and didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t see much football at all.â&#x20AC;? That was the case for cornerback Brandon Flowers, too. But both players acknowledged that the focus is back on the field, and that starts with Sundayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s game against the Raiders. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an important matchup against a division rival, one that could go a long way toward deciding the wide open AFC West. The Raiders will be without quarterback Jason Campbell, who broke his collarbone in the first half of their 24-17 victory over Cleveland on Sunday. Kyle Boller replaced him but struggled against the Browns, and the only other QB on their roster is Terrelle Pryor, who was officially activated Monday after a five-game suspension.

of spinning out of control for the Jets (3-3), they traded wide receiver Derrick Mason to Houston and then had to deal with some infighting as Holmes called out the offensive line for not giving Sanchez enough time to throw deep. Right guard Brandon Moore fired back, saying those comments could have a â&#x20AC;&#x153;fragmenting effectâ&#x20AC;? and were not what a captain, which Holmes is, should do.

Mediation looms; Stern antsy NEW YORK â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The NBA and playersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; association are ready to try mediation, and Commissioner David Stern wants results quickly. Stern said last week during an interview with WFAN radio in New York that without a deal Tuesday, when the sides meet with federal mediator George Cohen, his â&#x20AC;&#x153;gutâ&#x20AC;? was that there wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be NBA basketball on Christmas. Owners are opening two days of board meetings Wednesday, and Stern wants to be able to bring a deal to them. But can a mediator swoop in and smooth out two years of bickering in one day? Attorney Jay Krupin, chair of EpsteinBeckerGreenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s national labor practice in Washington, doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think so â&#x20AC;&#x201D; unless the players are prepared to concede on some issues. Players already feel theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve conceded plenty financially, and they dismissed Sternâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s attempt to attach added importance to Tuesdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s talks, with union president Derek Fisher of the Lakers saying it was just an â&#x20AC;&#x153;arbitrary deadlineâ&#x20AC;? for potential Christmas cancellations.

The Big East presidents voted Monday night to double to exit fee for football members to $10 million, a person with knowledge of the decision told the Associated Press. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the conference did not plan to make any announcements. The Big East is hoping the move will lead to adding six new schools to the conference, including Boise State as a football-only member. The exit fee will remain $5 million for the leagueâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s eight non-football members.

City golfers struggle at state ————

Lawrence High ninth at challenging Shadow Glen By Corey Thibodeaux cthibodeaux@ljworld.com

OLATHE — Lawrence High junior Attie Pennybaker wasn’t pleased with her 109 after finishing with the early group at Monday’s Class 6A state golf tournament. But as more golfers finished, she realized her score was about the norm because of the difficulty of Shadow Glen Country Club. “It makes me happier,” she said. “I’m still not very happy, though.” The Lions finished in ninth place of 12 teams after a cold and rainy day that took its toll on the girls. The LHS golfers counted 91 participants on the scoreboard, and only a handful broke 100. None broke 80. “It’s a true sign of how difficult this golf course was,” LHS coach Mike Lewis said. The Lions were closely bunched, with junior Anna Wright shooting 111, sophomore Abigail Schmidtberger 112 and junior Quillen Eichhorn a 114. Free State’s two state qualifiers — Madison Brumley, 142; and Liz Hazlett, 155 — had trouble with the course as well. FSHS coach Craig Hershiser felt what his girls were going through. “As a golfer, I could say this course could get into your head pretty easily,” he said. “From watching the kids play, that happened to a lot of girls.” Hershiser said the hazard lines and out-of-bounds areas hurt his team. Pennybaker’s issues came

Series tickets. The price on each ticket: $8. Retired from Kansas University where for 18 years he was a professor of business ethics, Reitz was attending graduate school at Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 1967 when the Red Sox emerged from a four-team logjam to win the American League pennant on the season’s final day. He lived in suburban Watertown, Mass., with his young family and befriended a neighbor and fellow baseball fan, whose name he remembered as Angel Mancer Marquez of Venezuela. “The Red Sox were awful,” Reitz said. “The previous year they had finished ninth, and they had been losers for years. Nobody from Boston sent out for tickets because everyone thought, ‘The Red Sox aren’t going to win the pennant.’ We filled out a form, sent in a check and got seats for Games 1 and 7.” Reitz followed springtraining accounts of the Red Sox in the Boston newspapers.

Out of Lawrence’s top six players, only senior Payton Covert is graduating. Lewis is excited about the talented youth on his team. “We’ve got a good core group of golfers,” he said. “I think they’re going to get better each year. We’ve got a couple years for most of them to be around.”

“Desperate for some kind of news, (Red Sox manager) Dick Williams said, ‘We’re not going to have captains this year. I’m going to be the leader of this team, and we’re going to have a great year.’ Well, of course, everybody said (rolling his eyes) said, ‘Sure.’ Yastrzemski had been the captain the year before,” Reitz said. The insult certainly didn’t hurt Carl Yastrzemski’s production. He won the Triple Crown with a .326 batting average, 44 home runs and 121 RBIs. It was Yastrzemski who led the Red Sox to the pennant on the final weekend, which started with four teams still having a chance to win the AL pennant. “That whole month of September, every time he came up with someone on base he was going drive them in,” Reitz remembered. “It was amazing. I’ve never seen anybody that clutch.” Still, it wasn’t as amazing as the Gibson World Series performance, two-thirds of which Reitz witnessed 23 rows from the Fenway Park field, not far from first base. In Game 1, Gibson defeated Jose Santiago, 2-1. Roger Maris drove in both St. Louis runs with groundouts, and

Santiago helped himself with a home run. Gibson allowed six hits, struck out 10 and walked one. At Busch Stadium in Game 4, Gibson tossed a five-hit shutout and was backed by three Lou Brock stolen bases in a 6-0 Cards victory. For Game 7, the Red Sox sent Jim Lonborg, who delivered the pennant on the final day of the season and won Games 2 and 5 of the World Series, against Gibson. “With Gibson on three days’ rest and Lonborg on two days’ rest, everyone knew what the outcome was going to be,” Reitz said. “It was an afternoon game, of course. God said World Series games should be played in the afternoon, so kids could play hooky and listen to it. Gibson’s pitching off that high mound in the shadows and he was dominant.” Reitz remembers what he was thinking as he watched Gibson buzz a fastball under a chin one pitch and fling a slider by a fanning bat the next. “I could feel it out there,” Reitz said. “There are guys in the batter’s box who do not want to be in there because, you know, Gibson would hit you just as soon as look at you.”

Gibson finished the ’67 Series with a 3-0 record, with a 1.00 ERA and 26 strikeouts in 27 innings. Reitz also reminisced about Koufax, the other dominant National League pitcher of that era. Reitz, then in the Marines and stationed in Camp Pendleton, would drive to Los Angeles to watch Koufax pitch and Maury Wills steal bases. Baseball fans who like to look back on the ballplayers of yesteryear generally can be divided into two groups: 1. Those who yearn for all things yesterday, and it’s not really the baseball they miss as much as their youth; 2. Baseball purists who find things they love about all eras. In answering the question of whether there is a pitcher in today’s game he would drive to Kauffman Stadium and pay to see, Reitz showed he belongs in the second group. “No,” he said after thinking about it. “But I’ll tell you who kept me going to Royals games this year. (Eric) Hosmer. I think if he stays healthy, he’s got a chance to be one of the really great players. And I think he’s the best-fielding first baseman in the game right now.”

KU women’s golf moved up to ninth

Quinones paces Kansas men

J-W Staff Reports

NORMAN, OKLA. — Kansas University’s women’s golf team moved up a spot to ninth after the second day of the Susie Maxwell Berning Classic on Tuesday. Meghan Potee leads the Jayhawks with a 75-75—150, which leaves her tied for 32nd. Other KU scores: Audrey Yowell, 75-76—151, tied for 34th; Thanuttra Boonraksasat, 77-77—154, tied for 53rd; Nadia Luttner, 75-81—156, tied for 66th; Katy Nugent, 84-73—157, tied for 72nd; and Gabby DiMarco, 78-80—158, tied for 76th. Texas A&M leads the team race with a 571. Kansas shot 302-301—603.

KIAWAH ISLAND, S.C. — Doug Quinones fired five birdies in round one en route to a 1-over par 73 and followed it up with a second-round score of 72 to finish the first day of The Invitational at The Ocean Course in 11th place. Quinones struggled early in his first round with a bogey, a double bogey and one triple bogey to be 5-over par through five holes. Other KU scores: Chris Gilbert, 74-74—148, tied for 22nd; Alex Gutesha, 7973—152, tied for 40th; Jordan Lowery, 80-81—161, tied for 66th; Paul Harris, 8478—162, and Bryce Brown, 76-86—162, tied for 69th.

MILL VALLEY — Jake Walter scored a pair of goals, leading the Free State soccer team to a 2-0 victory over Mill Valley on Monday night. Walter, a senior forward, scored one goal in the first half before adding the other in the final five minutes. “We played well, but not as well as the coaching staff expected,” Free State coach Kelly Barah said. “Most of the frustration was possession in final third and finishing. Everything was good until that part of it.” Junior goalkeeper Luke Lesslie helped Free State’s defense to its third consecutive shutout.

Johnson CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1B

Johnson and Tyshawn Taylor. “They’ve become close, kind of bonded more. Maybe it’s because they know they have to lean on each other a lot. I think that could be a good backcourt,” Self said. “I feel we can be a real good (backcourt),” Johnson noted in agreement. “I feel there’s really three of us. I feel like Thomas (Robinson) is a big guard. He just runs like a guard. He just runs, he runs, he runs, he runs. He’s so athletic. I feel like he’s 6-4, but he’s really 6-9. With Tyshawn running one wing and me on the other wing and Thomas coming down the middle, how would you look at it if you were on defense?” KU’s backcourt-mates are so close that Johnson refers to Taylor as his “twin.” “Our games are similar,” Taylor said. “We both like to get up and down. We know where we are going to be. We’ve spent a lot of time together in the offseason working out. We’re comfortable with each other.” The country knows all about Taylor, KU’s first fouryear starter since Aaron Miles. As far as Johnson, just a few years ago he arrived on campus as Rivals.com’s No. 24-rated player overall and No. 4-rated point guard in the Class of ’09 behind only John Wall (Kentucky, now in the NBA), Abdul Gaddy (Washington junior) and Eric Bledsoe (Kentucky, NBA). His name just hasn’t been mentioned as much since then. Johnson did not receive any votes for honorable mention in this year’s preseason Big 12 coaches poll. “Nope, not mad at all,”

| 3B

Johnson said, asked if he was bothered by the snub. “Let them keep talking (about others). Like I said earlier, we need somebody to talk. I can’t be mad if my name is not mentioned.” Matt Kamalsky of draftexpress.com thinks many may know Johnson’s name at the end of this season. “Johnson is not the first highly-touted recruit to start his career on the bench, and he would not be the first less-than-experienced prospect to put it all together as an upperclassmen either,” Kamalsky writes on his website. “While he has yet to prove the things he’ll need to prove in order to legitimize his draft stock, he has proven to be an efficient role-player, and has all the tools to be successful when he begins to see significant minutes. For those reasons alone, Johnson is a player to pay especially close attention to this season as he could rocket up draft boards and a prospect we’ll surely be revisiting as he teams up with Tyshawn Taylor and Thomas Robinson to step up in place of the Morris twins. Elijah Johnson’s time seems to have finally arrived in Lawrence.” !

Kaleb Tarczewski, a 7-foot senior center from St. Mark’s High in Soutborough, Mass., will leave Thursday for his official visit to Arizona, zagsblog.com reports. Tarczewski’s AAU coach, John Carroll, called the big man’s weekend visit to KU “great.” Rivals.com’s No. 20-rated player is expected to decide soon after visiting Arizona. ... Allerik Freeman, a 6-4 junior guard from Olympic High in Charlotte, N.C., visited Kansas State on Monday after his weekend trip to KU. Freeman, the No. 24-ranked player in the Class of 2013, will visit Villanova and Syracuse in the near future, he told jayhawkslant.com.

Men used to be men. Some became dudes, and others morphed into the video game-playing quasi-nerds who populate “Man Up!” (7:30 p.m., ABC). Will (Mather Zickel) is the sweet, slightly clueless Dad figure clearly modeled on Phil Dunphy (Ty Burrell) of “Modern Family.” His wife, Theresa (Teri Polo), is also an obvious knockoff of Claire Dunphy (Julie Bowen). Will’s brother-in-law, Kenny (Dan Fogler), is a combustible hothead of the Jack Black variety. Will and Kenny spend entirely too much time playing violent video games with Craig (Christopher Moynihan), a weepy, emotional type still carrying a torch for the girl who dumped him. The first episode careens from a botched birthday party for Will’s awkward son to Craig’s attempt to crash the wedding of his ex. It’s around this time that the pilot for this series begins to resemble the pilot for “Happy Endings” in too many ways. And that pilot was terrible for so obviously (and badly) plagiarizing “The Graduate.” Over the course of the last few years, there has been a parade of sitcoms about the wacky relationships between married couples and their single and/or divorced friends. None has exactly thrived. “Rules of Engagement,” the most popular of the bunch, has survived only by moving from night to night to avoid outright cancellation. While not as horrible as the crumpled Tim Allen vehicle “Last Man Standing,” ‘‘Man Up!” is at once ridiculously familiar and instantly forgettable. It appears to be part of some corporate plan by ABC to prove that it’s not just a network for female fans of “Desperate Housewives” and “Dancing With the Stars.” Thus far, the plan is clearly not working.

Spike, a network clearly not aimed at the ladies, presents the sixth annual “Scream Awards 2011” (8 p.m.), celebrating the year in horror, fantasy and science fiction. Look for a special salute to the just-concluded “Harry Potter” film franchise.

“Billions Behind Bars: Inside America’s Prison Industry” (8 p.m., CNBC) examines America’s growing prison population and the estimated 800,000 people who work in the system, as well as the growing phenomenon of private, for-profit institutions.

Dear Annie: About 17 years ago, a neighbor of mine employed “Violet,” a teenage au pair from France. We became friends, but when Violet returned home, we lost touch. Earlier this year, Violet found me on Facebook, and we corresponded several times, catching up on each other’s lives. Violet told me she was sending me a small gift, and I received quite a large box that included chocolates and other candies, a bracelet, a fan, etc. In June, Violet got married. Normally, I would have sent a nice card, but to reciprocate for her gift, I put together a box with expensive hand towels, assorted soaps and a small statuette. I tried to keep the weight down, but it still cost me $50 to mail. Then, for my birthday last month, Violet sent me a package of assorted gifts. Violet’s birthday is coming up, and I don’t know what to do. Had her birthday come first, I could have nipped this in the bud by sending only a card. Now, I feel I must reciprocate. Annie, I can’t afford to be buying gifts and shipping them overseas. Even sending something small will perpetuate the cycle. Soon it will be Christmas, which means more gifts.

Snyder: KU not that bad By Matt Tait mtait@ljworld.com

Kansas State University football coach Bill Snyder isn’t interested in hearing about how bad the Kansas University defense is or how poorly the Jayhawks have played through the first six games of the season. He’s not buying it. “I think they’re a far better defensive football team than anyone would care to give them credit for,” said Snyder, whose 12th-ranked and undefeated Wildcats will take on KU at 11 a.m. Saturday at Memorial Stadium. “You sit down and watch them play, and you see that.” Snyder, whose team improved to 6-0 overall and 3-0 in the Big 12 with a 41-34 victory at Texas Tech last week, said the lopsided statistics that place the KU defense dead last in the country can be a little misleading. “A lot of people would suggest that they have had

Jamie’s wish CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1B

administered were and remain on par with those found at thousands of hospitals throughout the country, Jamie wanted them to be more. “Their rooms are fine,” Hill said. “And they’re what you find at a lot of other hospitals. But they don’t make you feel peaceful and hopeful, and that’s what we’re trying to change. Because everyone deserves to have a place where they can fight with hope.” When Alldredge and Aimee Jackson, the chairperson of the foundation, first approached LMH with the idea, hospital officials said they would be more than happy with whatever amount of money the group could raise. Alldredge and Jackson quickly informed them that they were looking to hit a home run and asked them what it would take to outfit all 15 rooms with the amenities of their dreams. The total came in at $100,000 — around $6,600 per room — and included plans to update the medical equipment, the artwork and the sitting areas for friends and family members and add flat-screen televisions, iPads and iPod docking stations for each room. “The more time I spend with the hospital, the more

some trouble defensively,” Snyder said of the Jayhawks (2-4, 0-3). “And the numbers would tend to reflect that. But you go back and look at who they’ve played against, four of the teams on their schedule are in the top 10 nationally as far as total offense.” Oklahoma State (second, 551 yards per game and 38 touchdowns), Oklahoma (fourth, 547, 33), Texas Tech (sixth, 534, 34) and Georgia Tech (ninth, 517, 41) are those four teams, with Northern Illinois, which KU beat, not far behind in 17th. “It’s not unique for them to have yardage on them when you consider those teams,” Snyder said. While the offensive strength of KU’s opponents serves as a good excuse for its defensive struggles thus far, that reason won’t work this week against Kansas State. The Wildcats, though unbeaten, rank 94th in total offense and average just 336

yards per game. KSU ranks 114th (of 120) in passing offense and 25th in rushing offense. Although those numbers indicate the KU defense may be in for a better performance, Snyder was quick to point out that his team has won its last three games despite being outgained on offense. “I’m not sure that statistics win ballgames for you,” Snyder said. “I don’t think many coaches really believe in that.” The Kansas offense, which ranks 41st nationally, gains on average 89 yards per game more than the Wildcats. Snyder said the Jayhawks could create problems for the Wildcats’ defense, which ranks 37th nationally. “Offensively, they’re a very balanced football team,” Snyder said. “That makes them even harder to defend.” Although KU has scored seven more touchdowns (26) than Kansas State during the

I want to raise the money,” Alldredge said. “My goal is to raise a little more than they said it would take, just so they don’t have to cut costs when it gets started. To tell you the truth, I don’t know that we’ll stop at LMH. We may do another hospital and just keep on going.” About three months into its quest, Alldredge and an army of 20 or so of Jamie’s closest friends and family members are well on their way to achieving their goal. The website — www.jamieswish. org — officially launched in mid-August. Since then, more than $33,000 has been raised. Some has come from private donations, big and small. And a lot of it came from an appeal to what these people were all about — the Sunflower Showdown. Saturday, when undefeated and 12th-ranked Kansas State comes to Lawrence to take on the Jayhawks (2-4), nearly all of Section 22 at Memorial Stadium will be filled with people supporting Jamie’s Wish. They won’t be wearing red or blue. And they won’t be wearing purple. Instead, they’ll don bright pink shirts that read, “Gameday: Together for a common cause” on the front and “www.jamieswish.org” on the back. Tickets and T-shirts are still available. For $100, donors get a ticket to the game, which kicks off at 11 a.m., a shirt and access to a pregame

tailgate tent and a postgame celebration at 23rd Street Brewery. All of the money will go toward the foundation. For those not interested in going to the game or for those who may already have a ticket, access to the pregame and postgame fun can be had for $30. In addition, donations can be made on the Jamie’s Wish website. Every penny raised is tax-deductible and will go directly to LMH, which is handling the financial side of the fundraiser. “I know people say this all the time, but every dollar does help,” Hill said. “Any amount.” In the months that have passed since they lost one of their best friends, Alldredge, Jackson and dozens of others have poured their hearts and souls into the Jamie’s Wish cause. Part of the reason has been to raise money to help grant their friend’s final request, and the other is to keep her memory alive. Alldredge said sharing Jamie’s story and working toward this cause has helped bring as many smiles as tears to the mourning process. “People keep complimenting me, but I think I’m the one who’s blessed,” Alldredge said. “I get to see this out and see how it helps people. The entire Lawrence community has embraced us so much through all of this, and that’s exactly what they did for Jamie.”

first six weeks of the season, the Jayhawks have managed just six TDs in the past two weeks. Still, Snyder said his club would take the Jayhawks seriously this week. And not just because it’s a rivalry game. “If you watched them play Oklahoma, you’d see that this is a continually improving football team,” Snyder said.

Biere on watch list Senior tight end Tim Biere has been named to the John Mackey Award’s midseason watch list, the Nassau County Sports Commission announced Monday. Biere, who leads the Jayhawks with 21 receptions, has recorded a career-best 246 yards and one touchdown in six games. The Mackey Award, given annually to the nation’s top tight end, will be presented on Dec. 8. The list of 25 midseason finalists will be narrowed to semifinalists on Nov. 14 and again to finalists Nov. 21.

WORLD SERIES

Cardinals, Rangers meet in the middle By Ben Walker Associated Press Baseball Writer

It’s a World Series straight out of Central casting. David Freese, the local boy who became a big hit for the St. Louis Cardinals. Big Tex himself, Nolan Ryan rooting on the Rangers. A pair of teams cut from a center slice of the country, set to meet in the middle. Makes for a different feel this October, doesn’t it? No coasting in this Series. None of the Derek Jeters, Dustin Pedroias or Chase Utleys from the East we’ve grown accustomed to seeing. None of the Tim Lincecums or Brian Wilsons we watched from the West last fall. They begin at Busch Stadium on Wednesday night, with C.J. Wilson starting for Texas against Chris Carpenter. Oh, and no need to change any clocks. Every game is scheduled to start at 7:05 p.m. local time. Kind of nice to avoid those late-afternoon shadows in California and skip those post-midnight final outs in Northeast. Provided there’s no rain or extra innings, that is. With MVPs Albert Pujols, Josh Hamilton and several other All-Stars involved, it’s certainly an interesting matchup. Adding to the intrigue: The teams are hardly acquainted, having played only three games against each other — and that lone series was back in 2004.

ST. LOUIS’ OCTAVIO DOTEL CELEBRATES AFTER GAME 6 of the National League championship series Sunday in Milwaukee. The Cardinals advanced to the World Series, where they’ll face Texas starting Wednesday. According to STATS LLC, the Rangers-Cardinals matchup equals the fewest games between two opponents in the majors, tying Mets-White Sox. Freese was eager to get going. A prep star in suburban St. Louis, he emerged as the MVP of the NL championship series, helped by his threerun homer in the clinching Game 6 at Milwaukee. “Thanks for the love yall,” Freese tweeted Monday. “For the first time gettin smoked in fantasy football doesnt feel too bad.”

Whether sports fans in other spots will watch this Series remains to be seen. Last year’s pairing of the Giants and Rangers drew television ratings that equaled the lowest ever. The numbers were down 28 percent from the year before when the New York Yankees played the Philadelphia Phillies. The Cardinals still have a national profile, dating to a half-century ago when St. Louis was the most western point in the major leagues. In those days, the vast Cardinals radio network developed a

broad fan base all over the country. This week, the Rangers make their first trip to St. Louis. “The Rangers are scary. They’re a scary team,” Freese said. “You look at that lineup, you look at that staff. It’s going to be a battle.” “I think we’re a team that can match up with them a little bit. And they’re confident, we’re confident. It’s been a tough road. I’ve definitely been watching the ALCS for sure. That’s some good ball over there,” he said.
