The Douglas County Retiree Attraction Task Force is on a mission to make Lawrence a retirement destination.

Attracting more retirees to town will have impact on jobs, services, schools Editor’s note: This concludes a three-part series examining the push to attract more retirees to Douglas County. By Aaron Couch

Gene Meyer, the CEO of Lawrence Memorial Hospital, said a slew of medical jobs would be needed to keep up with demand as Lawrence’s population ages.

If Kansas University is not the Fountain of Youth, it is at least an age-defying tonic that helps keep Douglas County young. In fact, the U.S. Census Bureau predicts:

 That between 2000 and 2030, the number of folks 65 and older in Douglas County will have increased by 39 percent.

 Nationally, that older age group will have doubled during the same 30year period. So, it appears Lawrence

will remain a mecca for the young. But a local task force sees reason to change that, at least to some degree. Armed with studies forecasting the benefits of attracting people with spare cash and extra time to a community, the Douglas County Retiree Attraction Task Force is on a mission to make Lawrence a retirement destination. If the attempt to lure more retirees to Lawrence is successful,

that older population will have some impact on several aspects of life in Lawrence by creating greater demand for medical jobs, putting more stress on social services and even determining public school funding at the ballot box. Here is a closer look at some of the issues Lawrence will face:

Medical jobs In the next five years, at least 17 six-figure jobs

will be opening up in Lawrence. The city will need 10 new internal medicine physicians and seven general practitioners by 2016, according to a study by Lawrence Memorial Hospital. Gene Meyer, the hospital’s CEO, said a slew of medical jobs will be needed to keep up with demand. “There will be a wide range, from primary care, quality health care from the hospital and home services,” Meyer said. Many of those jobs, like nursing, come with good salaries and benefits. But not all will be high-paying. Home health aides — a profession expected to Please see RETIREES, page 7A

Historic Resources Commission to consider proposed six-story development at Ninth and New Hampshire By Chad Lawhorn

A proposed six-story hotel in downtown Lawrence will face its first hurdle at City Hall today. The city’s Historic Resources Commission is scheduled to discuss a proposal to build a multi-story hotel, apartment and retail building at the southeast corner of Ninth and New Hampshire streets. The city’s historic resources staff has raised concerns about the proposed design of the building and how it would affect the historic elements of downtown Lawrence and the Rhode Island Historic District that is immediately east of the prop-

erty. But staff members also said they believe the project is ripe for a compromise. “From our perspective, there is an opportunity to work on the design elements,” said Scott McCullough, the city’s director of planning and development services. “The proposed use is fully appropriate for the site. There are just some design issues that we are hopeful everybody will want to work together on to resolve. We think it could be a great project for downtown.” Specifically, the city’s analysis raises concerns with:

The height of the building and how it relates

to the much shorter, more residential buildings that are in the neighborhood to the east.

The signs associated with the building, particularly a large lighted sign at the top of the six-story building that advertises the property as a TownePlace by Marriott hotel.

Exterior construction materials, such as ceramic tile, that have not traditionally been used in the downtown. The city-appointed Historic Resource Commission also will likely hear from east Lawrence neighbors. The neighborhood association sent a letter to the commission listing 15 concerns that neighbors had raised. The proposed

height of the building was near the top of the list. Bill Fleming, representative for the development group seeking to build the project, said the group’s members were willing to listen to possible compromises. But he said some changes could derail the project. “We’ll have a difficult time compromising on the issue of building height,” Fleming said. “We have to make our numbers work, and it makes it more difficult when the building gets shorter.” Fleming said the development team, which is led by Lawrence businessman Doug Compton and architect Mike Treanor, have Please see HISTORIC, page 2A

The trash cart rolls on. The city’s Solid Waste Task Force made its strongest statement yet that it believes residents should be required to use city-issued trash carts instead of trash cans or bags. The task force Wednesday evening unanimously agreed to include in its draft report a In order statement call- for the city ing for the city to increase the to have a automation of competitive its trash collec- operation tion system by requiring use and to of the carts. make good The task force progress, cited that the this is the carts will save the city money way the and cut down industry is on injuries going.” of sanitation workers because the carts — Charlie Sedlock, can be emptied task force member using hydraulic and manager for lifts rather than Hamm Inc. being lifted by employees. “In order for the city to have a competitive operation and to make good progress, this is the way the industry is going,” said Charlie Sedlock, a task force member who also is a manager for Hamm Inc., the company that operates the landfill used by the city. Task force members, though, weren’t able to reach such agreement on whether to create a pricing system that would charge people based on the amount of trash they set out each week. The task force has discussed a “variable rate pricing” system that would charge people based on the number of carts they use to contain their trash. A household that needs two carts from the city to manage its trash would pay more than a household that needs only one, for example. But task force members said they weren’t yet ready to include that idea in the draft report. Members said they wanted more information about how households that occasionally have more trash than can fit into one container would be charged. Several task force members said that such occasional overages shouldn’t force a household into renting a second cart from the city. “I just don’t think we have explored this concept in enough depth,” said Suzi Cammon, a task force member. The issue of curbside recycling also was determined to need more study by the task force. Task force members expressed a strong desire to add a curbside recycling component to the city’s service. But several members said they were concerned about what the public’s reaction would be to a system that required all households in the city to pay for

DEATHS MARSHA BRICKLEY SMITH Services for Marsha Brickley Smith, 58, of Baldwin City, formerly of Plainville, will be at 10 a.m. Saturday at the First Christian Church of Plainville, with pastor Larry Lyles officiating. Burial will be in the Plainville City Cemetery.

Ms. Smith died Monday, Oct. 24, 2011, at Lawrence Memorial Hospital. Friends may call from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Friday at the Mosher-Kemp Family Funeral Home in Plainville, where the family will meet them from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.

Rachel Marie Streib Rachel Marie Streib, 91, passed away peacefully Friday, October 21, 2011 at John Knox Village Hospice House with her daughter, Laurie, and son-in-law, Steve, at her side. Rachel was born on the family farm in Clinton County, IA to Alva Mahon and Louise Dorothea (Feddersen) Crapser on June 30, 1920. She graduated Clinton High School in 1937 and the Univ. of Iowa with a B.A. in History and French in 1941 where she received her Phi Beta Kappa key for academic excellence. She received her Masters and Ph.D. in Psychology from the Univ. of Kansas in the 1970’s. In 1985 Rachel was appointed to “The Attorney General’s Task Force on Missing and Exploited Children” for the state of Kansas. She married William (Bill) F. Streib, in 1941. While Bill served as a 1st Lt. in the Navy on a minesweeper in the South Pacific during WWII, Rachel taught in a 1 room schoolhouse in Lost Nation, IA. After the war they settled in Clinton, IA where their children, Laurie and Larry, were born. Bill worked as an accountant for DuPont and Rachel was a homemaker returning to teaching once the kids were in school. In 1958 they were transferred by DuPont to KS and lived in Lawrence for many years. They loved the Lawrence community and the many opportunities it offered. Rachel and Bill divorced in 1969 but remained close friends until his death in 1999. Many might be surprised at their continued relationship but family members and close friends weren’t. They were exceptional individuals and their lifelong bond cannot be appreciated enough by their children, grandchildren and others who loved them both. Rachel retired from her Child Psychology practice in 1986. Upon retirement Rachel was able to spend more time on those “fun things” she always enjoyed. She spent time with her grandchildren, JoAnne and Trent, which was very special to all three. She joined the Senior Barn Players and absolutely loved the time she spent with her new friends practicing and giving plays to various organizations in the area. She established a “Play Readers Group” after realizing some of the members weren’t able to remember lines in their older years. Rachel was the Social Chairman of the Grammercy Park Townhouse Community

and continued in that role when she moved to John Knox Village in 1996. There she met Stan Wise, a wonderful friend and companion, who was “adopted” by her entire family including Steve’s parents, Joe and Doreen Evans. He had the same vim and vigor Rachel had and they spent their time going to dances, plays, concerts and family events. With her progressive dementia it became difficult to communicate with Rachel but he was always there with her favorite candy or “near beer” until his death in 2006. Mom, grandmother, aunt, cousin, friend, child advocate, organizer, Rachel will be missed dearly and remain forever in our hearts and in our memories. She was an amazing person who valued her family and friends much more than her “career,” even though she helped countless numbers of children live better lives because of her efforts. Rachel was predeceased by her parents, sister, Lois Thor, 2 infant daughters, Helen and Julia, best friend, Bill Streib and her dear friends, Don and Jane Flessing and Stan Wise. She is survived by her daughter, Laurie, and son-in-law, Steve Evans, Peculiar, Mo, her son, Larry and daughter-inlaw, Kathy, Delray Beach, FL, Laurie’s son, Trent Reeder (Kelsey), Hesperus, CO, Larry’s daughter JoAnne Bowden (Scott), Omaha, NE, Steve’s sons Philip (Tammy), Greenwood, MO, and Kyle, Lee’s Summit, MO, and 3 great-granddaughters and 5 great-grandsons along with several nieces and nephews. The family would like to thank Rachel’s caregivers through her nearly 9 years at the John Knox Village Care Center and the staff of the JKV Hospice, who all helped make her last years, hours and minutes so comfortable and peaceful. In lieu of flowers, donations would be welcomed to the John Knox Village Hospice, 400 NW Murray Rd, Lee’s Summit, MO 64081, in the name of Rachel Streib. A Memorial Service will be held at 11:00 am, Friday, Oct. 28, 2011 at the John Knox Village Chapel, 400 NW Murray Rd, Lee’s Summit, MO 64081 (corner of Murray and O’Brien). A family service will be held next Spring at the Elvira, IA cemetery. See you later, Alligator! Arrangements: Langsford Funeral Home, 115 SW 3rd St. Lee’s Summit, MO 64063 816-524-3700

Rep. Gregory fined $150 for using state email, computer to raise cash By Scott Rothschild

TOPEKA — State ethics officials on Wednesday fined Rep. TerriLois Gregory, RBaldwin City, $150 for requesting campaign contributions in an email she sent from her state account on a state-issued computer. During a hearing before the Kansas Governmental Ethics Commission, Gregory, who faced a maximum fine of $5,000, said her mistake was inadvertent. After the fine was levied, she issued a prepared statement, saying, “In the future, I will use every precaution to ensure these errors are not made again.” She said during the hearing that when she sent the email, she was tired and in a hurry. She said she was “a quarter-inch off” on a drop-down


Several Ethics Commission members said they were disappointed over statements by Kobach that the campaign self-reported the finance errors to officials. The commissioners said it was the commission staff that brought the problems to light. “The commission does not condone a lack of candor. This is in no way, shape or form self-reporting,” said Ethics Commission Chairwoman Sabrina Standifer. But Kobach, who didn’t attend the hearing, disagreed, saying that although the commission staff initially looked into the finances, it was the campaign’s internal review that found more problems and finally resolved the reports. “We decided to come forward and self-report those errors,” he said. The complaint alleged that the campaign made mistakes in reporting contributions totaling $35,011.52 and expenditures of $42,947.73.

menu and sent the email on her state account rather than her personal account. Gregory Gregory said she subsequently found out she couldn’t even use her state computer to send emails on a personal account. State law prohibits office holders from using state equipment for campaign purposes. The dispute stemmed from a July newsletter from Gregory that touched on several major state issues. Under the heading “How do we continue?”, Gregory, in her first term, asked for campaign contributions for her 2012 re-election campaign. She asked for contributions

ranging from $5 to $500 with a goal of raising $20,000 by Aug. 25. “Unless you like more taxes, more debt and more regulation, I need to stay in office and hold strong a defensive fiscal line for Kansas,” she said. She included instructions on whom to make checks out to and where to send them. The newsletter was sent from her state House email account. The complaint was filed by the Kansas Democratic Party. On Wednesday, she said the email was sent to about 200 people. When asked if she raised any funds from the solicitation, she said she didn’t think so. Commissioners unanimously approved the $150 fine.

“It’s clear the commission initiated this, and to not admit this is an aggravating factor,” in setting the fine, said Commissioner Glenn Kerbs. Commissioner Mark Simpson, an assistant district attorney in Douglas County, said that the errors were a serious violation and that such failures undermine the integrity of elections. And, he said, that the campaign had shown “a complete lack of responsibility.” Kobach defeated incumbent Chris Biggs, a Democrat, in the November election. Arpke said the initial failure to keep accurate records was the result of a chaotic campaign that relied on volunteers. He even noted that one event ended with a bomb threat with people trying to leave quickly while also writing contribution checks. “We worked very hard on getting this corrected to the penny. It was a grueling process,” he said. Despite the criticism from the commission, Arpke said he thought he was honest with the commissioners. The commission voted 7-2

for the fine. An earlier motion by Commissioner John Solbach for a $4,500 fine failed. Solbach said that he understood the commission’s frustration with the Kobach campaign, but that he was willing to go below the maximum fine because Arpke had helped in tracking down receipts. But his motion failed 4-5. Earlier, Arpke and the commission’s general counsel Camille Nohe had worked out an agreement for a $750 fine. But under questioning from the commissioners, Arpke refused to concede during the hearing that it was the commission staff that uncovered the discrepancies in the campaign reports. At one point, he said he didn’t remember how the errors first surfaced. “It has been a long time ago,” he said. Kobach noted a similar complaint in 1999 against the campaign of Bill Graves, a Republican who was elected governor, resulted in a $1,000 fine and involved an even larger amount of discrepancies.

Grant to help foster children succeed in school


tried to design the building to be sensitive to the adjacent neighborhood. The building becomes shorter as it moves away from New Hampshire street and approaches the alley. McCullough, though, said staff members wanted to have more discussion with the development team about whether the height could be reduced. As currently proposed the project would include:

An 81-room TownePlace by Marriott on the top three floors of the building. The hotel would be geared toward “extended-stay” visitors.

A total of 36 apartments on the second and third floor of the building. The apartments would be a mix of studios, one-bedroom and twobedroom units.

A restaurant and wine bar on the ground floor, plus the hotel lobby, which would be on the south end of the building near the Lawrence Arts Center.

Two levels of underground parking that would provide about 120 spaces for the hotel and other uses. The Historic Resources Commission meets at 7:30 p.m. today at City Hall. If HRC members choose to deny the project, the developer can request a hearing before the Lawrence City Commission. — City reporter Chad Lawhorn can be reached at 832-6362.

TOPEKA — The state has received a $250,000 federal grant that is aimed at improving the lives of children in foster care, officials said. The grant from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services will fund a 17-month collaborative initiative among the Kansas Department of Social and Rehabilitation Services, Kansas University and State Department of Education. The grant funds will be used to improve sharing of information among the agencies involved in the lives of foster children, specifically SRS and the schools the children attend, officials said. The goals are to reduce the

number of times foster children have to change schools and improve the children’s graduation rates. “We are going to do everything we can to make communication among agencies more efficient to ultimately benefit children who are in state care,” said SRS Secretary Rob Siedlecki Jr. KU’s Institute for Educational Research and Public Service and School of Social Welfare will help the Children and Family Services Division of SRS and the state education agency develop the infrastructure necessary to increase interagency communication.

Library chief’s new job comes as surprise


Obama: No decision on oil pipeline President Barack Obama said Wednesday his administration has made no decision on whether a Canadian company can proceed with plans for a transnational oil pipeline to Texas. A protester during Obama’s appearance at the University of Colorado Denver yelled that the president should say no to the contested Keystone XL project. Obama said his administration is looking into the issue but had made no decision. He told the protester: “I know your deep concern about it. We will address it.” The proposed pipeline has prompted protests nationally and demonstrators have been arrested in front of the White House. Demonstrators protested outside one of Obama’s fundraisers Tuesday in San Francisco. The pipeline would carry oil derived from tar sands in Alberta, Canada, to refineries in Houston and Port Arthur, Texas. The 1,700-mile pipeline would travel through Montana, South Dakota, Kansas, Nebraska, Oklahoma and Texas. In a related development, 13 Democratic lawmakers and a Democratic-leaning independent sent a Wednesday letter requesting that the State Department inspector general investigate the department’s handling of the pipeline application. The State Department has jurisdiction over the pipeline because it crosses an international border.

The events surrounding the sudden departure of the longtime director of the Lawrence Public Library took a new twist on Wednesday. Lawrence leaders learned that recently retired Bruce Flanders has taken a new job as director of the Mabee Library at MidAmerica Nazarene University in Olathe. He starts his position Nov. 1. Lawrence library leaders said the announcement was news to them.

sponsible for overseeing the operations of the facility. “I had absolutely no inkling of it. We were totally under the impression that his intent was to retire.” But library leaders and Mayor Aron Cromwell on Wednesday insisted that none of this is a sign that Flanders was forced out of his position, which plays a key role in overseeing an $18 million expansion of the downtown library. That project currently is in design stages. “I was very surprised,” said Cromwell sought to assure Joan Golden, a member of the community members that Flancity’s library board that is re- ders’ departure was not an indi-

Obama announces student loan help President Barack Obama recalled his struggles with student loan debt as he unveiled a plan Wednesday that could give millions of young people some relief on their payments. Speaking at the University of Colorado Denver, Obama said that he and his wife, Michelle, together owed more than $120,000 in law school debt that took nearly a decade to pay off. He said that sometimes he’d have to make monthly payments to multiple lenders, and the debt meant they were not only paying for their own degrees but saving for their daughters’ college funds simultaneously. “I’ve been in your shoes. We did not come from a wealthy family,” Obama said to cheers. Obama said it’s never been more important to get a college education, but it’s also never been more expensive. Obama said his plan will help not just individuals, but the nation, because graduates will have more money to spend on things like buying homes.

Secrets sought in 100-year-olds’ DNA George Eberhardt turned 107 last month, and scientists would love to know how he and other older folks like him made it that far. So he’s going to hand over some of his DNA. He’s one of 100 centenarians taking part in a project announced Wednesday that will examine some of the oldest citizens with one of the newest scientific tools: whole-genome sequencing, the deciphering of a person’s complete collection of DNA. Scientists think DNA from very old healthy people could offer clues to how they lived so long. And that could one day lead to medicines to help the rest of us stay disease-free longer.

TOPEKA — A commission agreed Wednesday to consider proposing that Kansas start a 401(k)-style pension plan for new teachers and government workers, but members also expect to mull over a less aggressive alternative that creates such a plan only for higher-wage employees. The pension study commission also promised to discuss other ideas for improving the future financial stability of Kansas’ public pension system. The possibilities include issuing up to $5 billion in bonds to close a long-term gap in the system’s funding and additional increases in the state’s contributions to retirement benefits. The Kansas Public Employees Retirement System projects a gap of nearly $8.3 billion between anticipated revenues and the benefits promised to retirees through 2033. Earlier this year, legislators committed the state to increasing the tax dollars it contributes to the pension system and approved changes to force public employees to choose between contributing more of their paychecks to their pensions or accepting lower future benefits. Many legislators presumed the pensions study commission would draft a proposal for a 401(k)-style plan or a hybrid system when lawmakers created the group earlier this year. The state’s current plans guarantee benefits up front, based on a worker’s salary and years of service, rather than basing retirement checks on the pension system’s investment earnings, something common with businesses. The debate pits Gov. Sam Brownback and his Republican legislative allies pushing for a Please see KPERS, page 4A

press release announcing his retirement included no comments from him. He also did not return telephone calls at the time seeking comment. When asked about the suddenness of the announcement and the absence of Flanders, the library board’s chair noted that Flanders had been on medical leave. On Wednesday, library board chair Deborah Thompson said Flanders had mentioned nothing to her about another job. She said Flanders’ decision to leave the position was completely his own.


401(k)-style plan for new employees against public employee groups, which oppose the idea. Critics fear a 401(k)style plan or even a less aggressive alternative will provide less generous and less secure retirement benefits for new hires, without making a dent in the funding gap. “On the discussions we’ve seen so far, we haven’t seen them address the gap,” said Terry Forsyth, lobbyist for the Kansas-National Education Association teachers’ union. “There’s just nothing here that we can put our arms around.” The pension changes approved by legislators earlier this year won’t take effect unless the study commission drafts a plan by the end of this year and legislators consider the recommendations by June 2012. The law that created the commission also raises the state’s annual contribution by about $15 million in July 2013, ramping up the increase to $95 million as of July 2017. Changes in workers’ pension plans would take effect in 2014. Brownback contends the state can’t sustain its current




While no one indicated that Flanders had expressed any concern about the direction of the $18 million expansion, which he advocated for years, several sources did say that some design decisions recently had not gone smoothly. Both Golden and Thompson confirmed that library board members this summer were asked to make some relatively quick decisions about issues related to radio frequency devices, types of computer work stations and other issues that had to be decided before the design could proceed. Those issues had been presented to Flanders who was responsible for presenting them to the board. “The board was caught a

bit unaware that there were several things that had to be approved in a relatively short period of time,” Golden said. But Golden and others said they did not know whether the rigors of overseeing the expansion project played a role in Flanders’ departure. Flanders left a voice mail message with the JournalWorld on Wednesday afternoon. He said had not taken the Mid-America job at the time he informed the board of his retirement. He said retirement is an appropriate term because he is retiring from the Kansas Public Employee Retirement System, which is the pension plan that covers many public government employees. Flanders also said he

would miss the library and continues to be supportive of its expansion plans. “They’re on the right track in terms of the library expansion and all the services they’ll offer,” Flanders said. “I will miss that, but I’m really excited about all my new challenges.” As for his health, Flanders said he had undergone some medical treatments this summer that required him to miss work, but he said a doctor now has cleared him to return to work. An attempt to reach Flanders for further comment was unsuccessful.

Public employee groups and many legislators argue that KPERS faces long-term financial problems because the state has historically shorted its contributions. The commission will consider a proposal that would prevent the state from doing so in the future.

worker’s salary, from $50,000 to $80,000, is covered by a traditional plan and the rest, by a 401(k)-style plan. Public employee groups and many legislators argue that KPERS faces long-term financial problems because the state has historically shorted its contributions. The commission will consider a proposal that would prevent the state from doing so in the future, though it would dramatically increase tax dollars going into KPERS instead of public schools, social services and other programs. There’s also the option of issuing bonds, anticipating that earnings from investing the funds raised will outstrip the payments on the debt, while giving KPERS an infusion of cash to close the longterm funding gap. The state tried it in 2004, issuing $500 million in bonds, but the long-term funding gap still jumped because of investment losses during the Great Recession. The projected long-term funding gap for KPERS grew by almost 8 percent when the pension system released a new figure in July, jumping $587 million from $7.7 billion. However, the figure is an estimate for the end of 2010, before this year’s pension law was enacted.

pension system, known as “defined benefit” because benefits are guaranteed up front, regardless of the system’s revenues and investment earnings. A 401(k)-style plan is known as “defined contribution” because contributions but not benefits are fixed. Five legislators serve on the 13-member study commission, and Brownback appointed another five members. “I’m pushing for a defined contribution plan on a goingforward basis,” Brownback told The Associated Press in a brief interview Wednesday. “You’ve got it at a point where people are ready to make a decision on it.” As an alternative to a pure 401(k)-style plan for new hires, the commission will consider a “stack” plan for new hires, in which the first part of a

Lawrence police on Tuesday evening arrested a 28-yearold Lawrence man on several charges after he ran from officers in east Lawrence. Sgt. Matt Sarna, a police spokesman, said that at 5:30 p.m., an officer noticed the suspect, Anthony J. Belles, who had several warrants out for his arrest, in a vehicle near Eighth and New Hampshire streets. After a vehicle stop, the man ran away on foot, and police officers and a sheriff’s deputy pursued him. Sarna said the suspect threw a brick at a patrol car in the 800 block of New York Street and then ran inside A-1 Automotive, 837 Pa., and took a transmission disc. Officers caught up with Belles and took him into custody near Ninth and Delaware streets, and took him to the Douglas County Jail. Douglas County prosecutors filed two counts of aggravated assault, one count of criminal damage to property and one count of obstruction against Belles. According to jail records, Belles had outstanding warrants for his arrest in Lawrence Municipal Court and district courts in Douglas and Johnson counties.

Chapter 10 Ghosts of the Past and the Present

Last Chapter:! Jack and Mollie were transformed into runaway slaves hiding in a dark cellar in Doniphan on their last adventure. They met Abraham Lincoln and were sent on to the next safe place, with the other runaways, hidden in a wagon load of hay. Not having found their glasses, the twins are fearful. The wagon wheels rumbling over a rough road jolted the twins and sent bits of hay down on them, making Jack’s nose itch.! Ever since they had landed in that dark cellar, Jack had worried about not having their glasses. If somehow they were lost, not only would they never see their home and parents again, but they would have to live as runaway slaves.! And if caught and sent back … He shuddered. Back to where?! Mollie, who had been fighting the same fears, felt a sudden small weight in the pocket of her ragged old dress. A wave of giddiness washed over her as she reached in a hand and touched their glasses.! “Jack!” she whispered. They stood on an empty road, once again two redheaded kids in jeans and Tshirts, and to their right set the time machine.! “Oh, Jack,” Mollie cried, “I’m so glad to be out of that hay … and away … She started to say those people and was ashamed.! “I know what you mean,” Jack said.!!!!!!!! “I wish they could know that Mr. Lincoln would keep his promise and abolish slavery,” Mollie said. “But it will take a war,” Jack said.! “I could have told them about Martin Luther King and President Obama,” Mollie said. “Oh, and Nicodemus, Kansas, that allblack town settled by ex-slaves.” Now that he was no longer afraid, Jack thought of how awesome it was to have met Abraham Lincoln. “Did you know he’d been to Kansas?” he asked Mollie. Mollie shook her head. Mr. Lincoln’s visit to Kansas was on the computer. Besides Doniphan, he’d gone to Elwood, Blair, Troy, and Leavenworth.! The runaways in the cellar at Doniphan

existed only as an oral account and could not be proven. “Like the Post Office Oak,” Mollie said.! The twins spent time reading about the Underground Railroad, a network of places, like the cellar in Doniphan, where runaway slaves could hide and be transported on, hopefully, to freedom. When the familiar ticking of the time machine began, Mollie held up two crossed fingers. “That won’t help get us home,” Jack said. “It won’t hurt either,” Mollie replied. The woman stood on top of the hill, the wind ruffling her long blue dress. As they came up beside her, she turned in surprise. “Oh! I didn’t realize I wasn’t alone. Did you come from Hays?” Startled the twins looked at each other,

each seeing in the other’s eyes, a small gleam of hope that quickly died.! Long dress ... pants … a shirt … all of another era? Even if they were home, it wasn’t 2011.! But the glasses!! Mollie patted her skirt pockets and grinned. Jack felt his heart give a little leap.! “Yes,” he told the woman. Now, looking down from the hill, Jack noticed in the distance a cluster of limestone rock buildings, corrals, and a barn and realized they were seeing Old Fort Hays

when it was a military post for the U.S. Calvary.! Remembering that General George Armstrong Custer, who was killed along with the Seventh Calvary at the now famous Battle of the Little Bighorn in Montana, had once been at Hays, Jack asked the woman if he were there now. “No,” she said. “And he is most fortunate for cholera has stricken the Fort and many are dying.! I try to ease their suffering, but there is precious little one can do.! When I can bear it no longer … She paused ... “Up here, the air is clean, fresh, not laden with the fetid breath of sickness and death. Up here, for a little while …”! She wiped a handkerchief at sudden tears.! “But I must go. Duty calls.” As the woman in the blue dress descended the hill, Mollie said, “Okay. Let’s go home.” The ordinary sights and sounds of modern-day Hays, thrilled the twins. Even the trucks and cars speeding along Interstate 70 and the slower traffic through town filled them with happiness.! They were home! They could no longer see the old fort, hidden as it was behind motels, fast food restaurants, and used car lots.! “Remember,” Mollie said,” when we were 5 and Dad and Mom took us there for an old-time program called Christmas at the Fort? “I remember,” Jack said, “But let’s think now about getting home. It’s quite a ways and we’ll have to keep our glasses on all the time or get sent back to 18 something … And we may have to go back, anyway.”! “Maybe there’s a switch or something on the time machine that Mom and Dad can turn off.” Mollie said, daring to hope. “Maybe,” Jack said, also hoping. “But first, it’ll only take a minute to see who that woman was and what year they had a cholera epidemic in Hays. “Okay,” Mollie said. “I can stand to wait a minute.” The information on the computer gave the year of the cholera epidemic as 1867, the hill as Sentinel Hill, and the woman as probably Elizabeth Polly, the young wife of Ephraim Polly. She, too, died of cholera. “The park on Indian Hill road is called Elizabeth Polly Park,” Mollie said. “And there is a statue of her there by that artist, Pete Felton.” “Look at this!”! Jack said. “Elizabeth Polly was buried at the foot of Sentinel Hill and people say she haunts it.! Some claim to have seen her.! They call her the Blue Light Lady.”

“We saw a ghost?”! Mollie’s face screwed up in a look of disbelief.! “No,” Jack said laughing.! “She wasn’t a ghost then.! But she might be now.” “Whatever she is or was,” Mollie said, “I still want to go home.! Let’s walk to our school and ride the bus home.” The twins anticipated a kind of hero’s welcome from Mr. Crawford and the kids as they burst into the classroom, but not one kid even looked up, and Mr. Crawford kept right on talking about a math test. On the blackboard where he wrote it every morning, was the day’s date. “It’s the day we left,” Mollie said. She glanced toward their empty seats. “And we’re not here.” Jack frowned.! “Time must have stood still.” “We’re like ghosts,” Mollie said.! Like Elizabeth Polly.” She laughed, but tears sparkled in her eyes.! “Let’s go.! Maybe Dad and Mom can see us.” “How?” Jack said. “If time stands still …” His voice trailed off.! Mollie frowned. “The school bus won’t come until schools out and school won’t be out until we get back home.”

• A 19-year-old Lawrence man reported someone used a false Chase cashier’s check to steal $1,300 from him between Oct. 5 and Oct. 20. The theft-bydeception case was reported to Lawrence police Monday. • An 18-year-old Kansas University student faces a felony child endangerment charge in a Douglas County juvenile case in connection with an alleged incident last year involving his girlfriend at the time. Trevor James Benedict had a first appearance in court Wednesday after he was arrested Tuesday at Snow Hall on KU’s campus, according to Douglas County Jail records. Sgt. Steve Lewis, a sheriff’s spokesman, said Wednesday that Benedict was a suspect in a case alleged to have occurred between Dec. 10 and Dec. 25 last year at the victim’s residence near Lecompton. The victim was a girl who was 16 at the time. Benedict, who is from Perry, was 17 when the alleged offense occurred. Lewis said the victim and suspect in the case were listed as boyfriend and girlfriend at the time the

Trial set for man accused in robbery A 20-year-old Kansas City, Kan., man who is accused of robbing two Kansas University students last December and striking one female student in the face, pleaded not guilty to several charges Wednesday. District Judge Michael Malone set Michael Howard’s trial for Jan. 17. He faces two counts of aggravated robbery, one count of aggravated battery, one count of criminal possession of a firearm and one count of conspiracy. During a preliminary hearing last week, prosecutors accused Howard of using a gun to rob a male KU student Dec. 28 as the KU student was walking in an alley in the 300 block of 12th Street. They also accused him of punching a 22-year-old female KU student in the face and robbing her about 1:15 a.m. Dec. 29 as she was walking in the 800 block of Tennessee Street. The woman suffered a concussion and three facial fractures. A co-defendant, Ashley C. Johnson, 21, also of Kansas City, Kan., has received probation in the case, and she testified last week that she came to Lawrence that night with Howard and Raymond Cortez Morgan, 27, also of Kansas City, Kan., to commit crimes for money. Morgan, who is charged with conspiracy to commit robbery, aggravated robbery and being a felon in possession of a firearm, has a trial scheduled for Dec. 12. Howard has denied he was in Lawrence that night.

low-income Douglas County children who need dental work. “If we see kids out in the schools that have a lot of pediatric dental disease and don’t have insurance, we are going to set up some scholarships to take care of dental work back in the clinic,” said Julie Branstrom, executive director of the clinic. Fifty-three percent of the clinic’s patient population are children and most have Medicaid, which few dentists accept. It served 1,547 children in 2010. Last year, the community raised $815 through its first “Trick or Treat” fundraiser and the money was used for a one-time affiliation fee of $3,000, so the clinic could become an affiliate of the National Children’s Oral Health Foundation. Branstrom said the new affiliation has given Douglas County Dental Clinic access to donated supplies and equipment, and provided new opportunities for grant funding. The clinic also has received educational materials for use in schools. “It has been a huge benefit,” she said. Participant kits, which include instructions and a collection box, can be picked up at Otten’s office, 930 Iowa, or at the dental clinic, 316 Maine. Businesses and organizations also can help by putting out collection boxes. For more information, call Otten at 843-6404 or the clinic at 312-7770.

Candy buyback party Growing Smiles, 1425 Wakarusa Drive, is treating Lawrence kids to a post-Halloween party from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. Nov. 3. And Dr. Henderson wants kids to bring their leftover Halloween candy with them. Henderson said she’s not against indulging in some Halloween candy; even she indulges now and then. She just wants kids to enjoy it for a few days and then to get rid of it. She said eating a few pieces over prolonged period is “a lot harder on teeth.” The candy will be shipped to troops serving overseas. So, what’s in it for the kids? They will receive a bag of alternative treats: sugar-free gum and candy, stickers and coupons for local businesses. For each pound of candy they turn in, they will receive a raffle ticket for the chance to win big prizes like a Nintendo DS system and a Great Wolf Lodge package for a family of four. “We have a whole slew of prizes,” Henderson said, adding that they’ve received donations from a lot of dentists around town. Kids are encouraged to wear their costumes and they will have the opportunity to write a letter or draw a picture for the soldiers. Henderson said a lot of her young patients have asked: “What are the soldiers going to do with all of that candy? It’s not good for their teeth, is it? “They’re good questions,” she said. She explains that each soldier will receive just a few pieces by the time it is handed out. Also, “it makes their day because it reminds them of Halloween back home.” Last year, the dentist’s office collected 500 pounds of candy from about 100 kids.

A firing range established with a handshake 40 years ago is in line to receive an operational permit, and all the rules and regulations that go with it. Now it’s up to the folks who own the place north of Lone Star Lake — all active-duty or retired law-enforcement personnel — to see whether they agree with the conditions of a new conditional use permit. The vote is expected Nov. 14, as members of the Lawrence lodge of the Fraternal Order of Police gather to potentially end what has been a five-year effort to satisfy Douglas County requirements, appease nearby neighbors, and accommodate training and personal requirements of FOP members and area lawenforcement agencies to properly shoot pistols, rifles and other firearms. Douglas County commis-

sioners approved the permit Wednesday evening, sending the two-page document along to the 250 members of the FOP’s Lawrence lodge for ratification. “I think this has a decent change of passing,” said Dan Affalter, a retired captain for the Lawrence Police Department, COUNTY who has been COMMISSION heading the lodge’s permitting committee for the past five years. The permit would limit hours of operation, mandate filing of a plan for managing lead levels on the site and require that the lodge find a way to reduce noise levels affecting nearby residences. Suggestions have included putting up a berm alongside the pistol range at the 94-acre site, something county com-

night like protesters in Atlanta? “Yes, we’re afraid. Is this the night they’re going to sneak in?” said activist William Buster of Occupy Wall Street, where the movement began last month to protest what they see as corporate greed. “Is this the night they might use unreasonable force?” he asked. An Iraq War veteran marching with demonstrators suffered a crack skull in the chaos between officers and protesters in Oakland further raising concern among some in the movement.

LAWRENCE Poll: Many boomers likely to retire where they are WASHINGTON (AP) — Many baby boomers say they’re likely to stay put in retirement amid a shaky economy. Those who hope to buy a new place are looking for a smaller home somewhere with a better climate that’s more affordable and close to family, a new poll finds. The 77 million-strong generation born between 1946 and 1964 is increasingly worried about retirement and their finances in light of the economic crisis of the past three years. Just 9 percent say they are strongly convinced they’ll be able to live comfortably when they retire, according to the Associated poll. Overall, about 6 in 10 baby boomers say their workplace retirement plans, personal investments or real

Nursing aides, who may work in hospitals or nursing homes, make an average of $11.07 per hour in Lawrence, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Those types of jobs are unlikely to provide top-notch benefits. One in four nursing home workers have no health benefits, and nursing homes have been lobbying Congress to exempt them from a provision under the new health care law that would force them to provide insurance. Former Kansas Gov. Mark Parkinson, now a top lobbyist for the nursing home industry, was featured prominently in a May New York Times article, in which he said many nursing Aging in Columbia, Mo.

estate lost value during the economic downturn. Of this group, 53 percent say they’ll have to delay retirement because their nest eggs shrank. Financial experts say those losses, including home prices that have dropped by a third nationwide over the past four years, have left boomers anxious about moving and selling their homes. “There’s a mistrust of the real estate market that we didn’t have before,” said Barbara Corcoran, a New York-based real estate consultant. “There’s a concern about whether people will get money out of their house. They envision the home as a problem, not an asset, and this unshakable belief in homes as a tool for retirement has been shaken to the core.” County may want to consider offering services to seniors on a sliding scale, said Rebecca Holmes, Project Lively Coordinator at Project Lawrence-Douglas County Health Department. In her job, she sees middleincome seniors who could use a little help. But they make too much money. Instead of an “all or none” package, it might work better to have those seniors select services a la carte and pay for what they use, Holmes said.

Public schools Among education policy wonks, there is a debate whether more senior citizens in a school district is good or bad for its schools. A 2004 study found seniors who moved to a new area were significantly less supportive of its schools than those who had lived in a community for years.

But it’s hardly a closed case. Don Laird, president of the Columbia, Mo., Chamber of Commerce, said some senior-dominated precincts were big supporters of Columbia Schools. In some cities, schools have become hubs for senior activity, which in turn can strengthen support for them. During the 1980s in Brookline, Mass., seniors took classes after-hours in public school classrooms, and were driven across town in out-of-service school buses. Seniors also built relationships with school children through tutoring and mentoring programs. At a time when the rest of Massachusetts voted to cut school funding, Brookline seniors, who made up about 20 percent of the population, voted overwhelmingly in favor of its schools. Susan Esau, executive director of Lawrence Schools Foundation, thinks seniors and strong schools go handin-hand. “Retirees would choose to settle in a town that has a good, stable infrastructure. The public school system is a big part of that,” Esau said. — Reporter Aaron Couch can be reached at 832-7217. Follow him at aaroncouch.

curbside recycling, regardless of whether a household chooses to use the service. City officials do not yet have a firm estimate for how much such a service may cost. Staff members suggested that the task force recommend a request for proposals from private companies on two types of services. One service would be a “turnkey” service where the private company would do the collection and processing of recycled materials. The second service would be a processing-only service. Under that scenario, city crews would do the collection of the curbside recycling. Receiving official proposals from private companies would allow the city to create a firm estimate on how much curbside recycling would cost the average household. Ultimately, city commissioners would decide whether the service is financially feasible. Task force members Wednesday said they wanted to have more discussion before making any recommendations on curbside recycling. Task force members did agree on several other potential recommendations. They included:

Continuing to have trash

picked up once per week by city crews. The task force showed no interest in outsourcing the city-operated trash service to a private company.

Maintaining weekly collection of yard trimmings, in order for those materials to be diverted from the landfill.

An examination of whether “vegetative food waste” — basically food that is not dairy or meat-based — could be picked up and recycled at the same time yard

trimmings are collected. City staff members said there was good potential to include the food waste items into the city’s composting operations. The task force is expected to complete its draft report by the end of the year. The report then will be forwarded to the City Commission, which will make the final decision on any changes to the city’s trash or recycling systems. — City reporter Chad Lawhorn can be reached at 832-6362.

Flat tax renews fight on ‘trickle-down economics’ By Stephen Ohlemacher Associated Press

WASHINGTON — The flat tax is making a comeback among Republican presidential candidates. But it faces tough opposition in Congress because it tends to favor the rich at the expense of other taxpayers, renewing an old debate about “trickle-down economics.” Most of the top GOP contenders — Mitt Romney’s an exception — offer a variation of the tax plan in which everyone pays the same rate. Businessman Herman Cain has his 9-9-9 proposal, and Texas Gov. Rick Perry unveiled a 20 percent flat tax on income this week. Even Romney foresees a flatter tax system in the future, though he favors something closer to the current setup in the short term. The idea of a flat tax has long been championed by conservative politicians as being simple and fair. Publisher Steve Forbes made it a centerpiece of his Republican presidential campaigns in 1996 and 2000. Forbes has endorsed Perry, calling his economic

plan “the most exciting plan since (Ronald) Reagan’s.” “American families deserve a system that is low, flat and fair,” Perry wrote in his tax plan. “They should be able to file their taxes on a postcard instead of a massive novel-length document.” Conservative economists argue a flat tax would promote long-term economic growth by lowering taxes on the people who save and invest the greatest share of their income: the wealthy. Lowering taxes on the wealthy, however, could prove politically difficult, especially now, with protesters around the country occupying public spaces and calling for the rich to pay more. President Barack Obama and many Democrats in Congress also want higher taxes for the highest-income Americans. “It’s all about political rhetoric,” said William McBride, an economist the Tax Foundation, a conservative think tank. “The inevitable result of shifting the tax burden away from saving and investment is that you reduce the tax burden on the rich.”

New lights turn Rembrandt’s ‘Night Watch’ to day

AMSTERDAM — Rembrandt’s “Night Watch” may need a different nickname after the painting was put under new lighting on Wednesday that makes it look like a day scene. The change at the national Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam is startling, as characters once Liberals and many moderbarely visible or relegated to ates complain that a flat tax the background now stand out is a giveaway to the rich, rein vivid color. newing an old debate over whether the benefits of tax cuts for those at the top trickle down to the rest of the population. “This idea of lowering taxes on high-income people and somehow middle class people will benefit has been there for a long time,” said Chuck Marr, director of federal tax policy at the left-leaning Center on Budget and Policy Priorities. “Obviously it hasn’t worked very well.” Flat tax plans by both Cain and Perry have provisions to protect low-income families from tax increases. But that raises questions about who will be left to pay the tab, said Roberton Williams, a senior fellow at the Tax Policy Center, a Washington think tank. “If you exempt the lowincome people from higher taxes, if you cut the taxes for the wealthy, getting the same amount of revenue means the middle class are going to pay more, a lot more,” Williams said.

The 1642 painting was commissioned for one of Amsterdam’s citizen militias and is officially titled “The Company of Frans Banning Cocq and Willem van Ruytenburch,” the two most prominent and central of 34 figures depicted on the large canvas. Museum director Wim Pijbes said Wednesday the painting — widely considered Rembrandt’s greatest mas-

terpiece for its composition, dynamic motion, and use of light, color and shadow — may in fact only have acquired the “Night Watch” title because of a dark varnish that was removed decades ago. The new LED lighting system custom designed for the work by lighting giant Philips mimics daylight, helping return the work closer to its original appearance.

Hormones linked to weight regain By Malcolm Ritter Associated Press

NEW YORK — Any dieter knows that it’s hard to keep off weight you’ve lost. Now a study finds that even a year after dieters shed a good chunk of weight quickly, their hormones were still insisting, “Eat! Eat! Eat!” The findings suggest that dieters who have regained weight are not just slipping back into old habits, but are struggling against a persistent biological urge. “People who regain weight should not be harsh on themselves, as eating is our most basic instinct,” Joseph Proietto of the University of Melbourne

in Australia, an author of the study, said in an email. The research appears in today’s issue of the New England Journal of Medicine. Weight regain is a common problem for dieters. To study what drives it, Proietto and his colleagues enrolled 50 overweight HEALTH or obese patients in a 10-week diet program in Australia. They wanted to see what would happen in people who lost at least 10 percent of their body weight. Ultimately, only 34 people lost that much

and stuck with the study long enough for analysis. The program was intense. On average, the participants lost almost 30 pounds during the 10 weeks, faster than the standard advice of losing 1 or 2 pounds a week. They took in 500 to 550 calories a day, using a meal replacement called Optifast plus vegetables for eight weeks. Then for two weeks they were gradually reintroduced to ordinary foods. Despite counseling and written advice about how to maintain their new weights, they gained an average of 12 pounds back over the next year. So they were still at lower weights than when they started.

Notable European countries will force their largest banks to quickly increase their capital buffers as part of a grand strategy to solve the continent’s debt troubles, but leaders gathered at a crisis summit struggled to agree on the other key parts of the plan. Strengthening Europe’s banks is crucial to finally getting a grip on the debt crisis that has roiled the continent for almost two years and threatens the future of the euro, the common currency that is at the heart of Europe’s postwar unity. Fears that financially weak countries like Greece, Ireland and Portugal — and even larger economies like Italy and Spain — could default on their borrowings has eroded confidence in Europe’s banks, which own much of those countries’ debt in the form of bonds.

Road relief

Outsource trash

Local residents are ready to bid a fond farewell to Kansas Turnpike road crews.


he end of a project to replace bridges over the Kansas River and make other improvements to the Kansas Turnpike near Lawrence certainly is cause for celebration. All lanes of traffic both east and west of Lawrence were scheduled to be opened by this morning. For the first time in three years, motorists will be able to drive from the West Lawrence interchange to a point just east of the Lawrence Turnpike service area without dodging construction or merging into slowmoving traffic as a result of lane-closings. In the last three years, motorists have endured interchange closures and major traffic delays. At the end of the long project, however, the Kansas Turnpike Authority deserves credit for moving this project along and doing its best to minimize the inconvenience to motorists. When construction started in November 2008, KTA officials acknowledged that a project that included the replacement of the Kansas River bridges was bound to cause motorists some frustration and delays. That certainly was true, but construction contractors did their best to maintain the safety of motorists on the highway and successfully completed the project on time. The bridge-replacement project that local drivers and officials had dreaded for so long now is behind us, along with other related, traffic-clogging turnpike improvements. The end result is good for Lawrence, as well as all KTA motorists who will enjoy a smoother and safer highway. Thanks to the KTA for the nice new bridges, highway and interchanges in Lawrence. Although construction somewhere on the Kansas Turnpike seems to be a never-ending proposition, we’re glad to see your work crews moving on to other locations, at least for a while.

Transportation move The exit of Transportation Secretary Deb Miller is a loss for the state.


n another notable traffic-related news, Deb Miller announced this week that she would step down as secretary of the Kansas Department of Transportation at the end of this year. Miller was the first woman to lead KDOT and the only previous Cabinet member retained by Gov. Sam Brownback when he took office last January. Her service in the administrations of three different governors is a testament to her stature and expertise as a transportation leader. Miller said Tuesday that she was pleased to have the opportunity to give a strong launch to the $8 billion program of road, bridge, rail and aviation improvements approved by state legislators about 18 months ago, but that her new job with a transportation consulting firm in Massachusetts is “a great opportunity to do something new.” She plans to continue living in Topeka so she will be able to monitor progress on other important projects that she has helped move forward, including the completion of the South Lawrence Trafficway. Miller is the longest-serving transportation secretary in state history, and even with the challenging economic conditions that marked her term, she has had a significant positive impact on the state’s transportation systems. She deserves the state’s thanks and best wishes as she moves to a new chapter in her career.

Missed Mideast opportunity WASHINGTON — To the catalog of missed opportunities for peace in the Middle East, we can add a tantalizing if also depressing chapter: Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert’s secret offer in 2008 to create a Palestinian state that would feature international control of holy sites in a divided Jerusalem — a concession many Israelis have said was impossible. Condoleezza Rice discusses the Olmert proposal in her new memoir, “No Higher Honor.” She writes that as she listened to Olmert’s plan during a May 2008 visit to Israel, she asked herself (and the emphatic italics are hers in the text): “Am I really hearing this? ... Concentrate. Write this down. No, don’t write it down. What if it leaks? It can’t leak; it’s just the two of us.” As Rice tells the story, Olmert developed a comprehensive plan, which he presented secretly to Mahmoud Abbas, the president of the Palestinian Authority, in the summer of 2008. By September, the details of Olmert’s offer included: OIsraeli transfer of sovereignty of 94.2 percent of the West Bank to the new Palestinian state. He offered additional swaps of land, and a corridor linking the West Bank and Gaza, that would bring the total Palestinian land area to 100 percent of the pre-1967 borders of the West Bank. O A formula for dividing Jerusalem that would give Arab neighborhoods to the Palestinians and Jewish neighborhoods to Israel, with negotiators working out the status of mixed neighborhoods. Each country would have Jerusalem as its capital; there would be a joint city council with an Israeli mayor and a Palestinian deputy mayor. O The Old City would be administered by an international committee with representatives from Israel, Palestine, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, the European Union and the United States.

And what happened to this miraculous package? … It died, with the United States on the sidelines hoping and praying, but Olmert and Abbas too weak politically to take the leap.” Questions of sovereignty in Jerusalem would be fudged, with each side rejecting the other’s claims. O The “right of return” for Palestinians would be limited to about 5,000. To compensate other Palestinian refugees, a fund of several billion dollars would be created, under Norwegian administration. O The U.S. would protect Israel’s security not just with American power but by training a reliable Palestinian security force. And what happened to this miraculous package? Because it’s the Middle East, you know the answer: It died, with the United States on the sidelines hoping and praying, but Olmert and Abbas too weak politically to take the leap. The collapse came the moment it seemed to become real. In September 2008, Olmert showed Abbas a map charting the boundaries of the new state. According to Rice, he asked Abbas to sign the deal on the spot, but the Palestinian leader balked and asked to consult his experts first. Olmert wouldn’t let him take a copy of the map, and the follow-up meeting never happened. President Bush tried to revive

the deal when the leaders separately visited Washington in November and December, but by then Olmert was under investigation for corruption charges, and Abbas apparently decided he could get a better deal with a Democratic president. “The conditions were almost ripe for a deal on our watch, but not quite,” writes Rice. What followed this near miss? That’s the most depressing part of the story. Rice kept mum, but she gave the new administration details of Olmert’s offer, including a State Department version of the map. She hoped the U.S. would use Olmert’s plan as a building block for negotiations — and perhaps even submit it to the U.N. Security Council. But in one of President Obama’s biggest mistakes, he decided to start negotiations all over — and to demand an Israeli settlement freeze as a test of wills. What a mistake. He was outfoxed by Benjamin Netanyahu, the new Israeli prime minister. Three years later, the peace process is a lifeless corpse. Rice says she decided to go public with the Olmert plan now because “we’ve gone so far backward” that the peace process seems like “a lost cause.” The lesson of the Olmert gambit, she explained in an interview, is that “an IsraeliPalestinian deal is doable, but they can’t keep missing opportunities.” Back when she organized the Annapolis peace conference in November 2007, Rice was criticized as overoptimistic. But there was more to the process than many commentators realized. I suspect all the parties would like to rewind the tape to Annapolis — most especially, the Israelis. Olmert’s map, now dust in the wind, may be the best formula we’ll ever get for the peaceful creation of the Palestinian state that will cement Israel’s own security.

To the editor: Mario Cuomo, past Democratic governor of New York, has stated, “It is not a government’s obligation to provide services, but to see that they are provided.” The city of Lawrence has had a Solid Waste Task Force meeting regularly for almost a year. As an attendee at most of the meetings, I have come to the conclusion the task force should make a recommendation to the Lawrence City Commission to privatize the solid waste operation of the city. The City Commission should put out a request for a proposal to have an outside vendor assume all municipal hauling operations. Currently, the city charges residents, as part of their utility bill, $14.55 for once-a-week trash pickup plus once-a-week yard waste pickup for about 10 months of the year. The Solid Waste Task Force has been considering — and I predict it will recommend to the Lawrence City Commission — that it institute a mandatory recycling function that will add about $5 to $7 per month to the utility bill. Presently there are several vendors who would be glad to bid for the municipal hauling and recycling of the city. I visited with one yesterday who said he would bid $13 per month for the right to be the vendor of choice for the city and would provide the same services. Would you like to pay almost $20 or $13 per month for your trash, including recycling? You do the math. Jim Mullins, Lawrence

Cutting costs

To the editor: It was very gratifying to read in the newspaper and see on TV that the head of the state Department of Social and Rehabilitation Services will request funding for the Lawrence SRS operation in 2012 and not wait until 2013 to do so. Mr. Siedlecki could also make a good-faith effort to save some tax dollars while the Lawrence SRS operation continues to function. There are two buildings at the SRS complex. People familiar with the work areas in the two buildings say that the smaller of the two (or annex) building is very underutilized due to normal employee attrition and transfers. These vacancies have not been filled due to prior budget cuts. The remaining employees in the smaller building could easily move into – David Ignatius is a columnist for the larger, thereby hopefully reWashington Post Writers Group. ducing the $225,000 a year rent by at least one-third, or $75,000.

U.S. exit stirs mixed emotions Eight years ago on a night in March, they interrupted our regularly scheduled programs for a breaking news bulletin. We sat before our televisions and watched rockets arc into the skies over Baghdad. Many of us had doubts about the stated and implied causes of the war that began that night: the need to secure Saddam Hussein’s stockpile of WMD and to retaliate for his part in the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. But, as I noted in a column, “We need for George Bush to be right and those of us who are doubtful to be wrong. We need this for the sake of over 200,000 American servicemen and women who stand ready for war in deserts far from home.” We all know how that turned out. There were no weapons of mass destruction. Hussein had no connection to the events of Sept. 11. Nor did the war pay for itself. Nor did Iraqis strew rose petals in the path of American tanks. The things we were told on the route to war turned out to be untrue. What is true is that we fought a war we did not have to fight. It cost at least $806 billion and more than 36,000 American casualties, including 4,400 fatalities. So there are mixed emotions at last week’s news that President Obama has decided to withdraw virtually all U.S. service personnel from Iraq. There is elation, of course, thankfulness that American servicemen and women will

One feels like a broken record in saying this. That analogy, for those who have known only CDs and iPods, refers to the tendency of vinyl records to go bad and repeat a phrase ad infinitum. Ad infinitum. Ad infinitum. Similarly, your humble correspondent has repeatedly repeated himself over the last eight years in decrying the uselessness of this war. As facts go, it is a pebble in the shoe, a nagging truth that has made the good news less good and the bad news worse. The surge worked? We should

Mental patients to move during renovation TOPEKA (AP) — Kansas plans to move about 30 patients out of a state mental hospital in Kansas City so that it can be renovated to address fire-safety issues. The Department of Social and Rehabilitation Services announced Wednesday the patients will be moved Nov. 9 from the Rainbow Mental Health Facility to Osawatomie State Hospital. Rainbow was built in 1973 and has 36 beds, making it the state’s smallest facility for the mentally ill. SRS says Rainbow needs about $500,000 worth of renovations, including a new sprinkler system. The agency said it began examining the building when an inspection by the state fire marshal found multiple problems last month. The work is expected to take up to eight months.

Kansas’ top 11 prospects

It wasn’t too long ago that Kyle McFarland was unfamiliar with the spotlight. Just another Free State High student, nothing extraordinary about him, McFarland merely was a 6-foot-3 junior going about his day before football season started. Fast-forward to now, and McFarland still carries himself as if nothing has changed. For a starting quarterback on a winning team one victory away from a district championship, McFarland is neither cocky nor imposing. Though an amateur by definition, he is every bit professional and no-nonsense in

his demeanor. Perhaps that is why McFarland, who had never started a varsity game entering this season, is now one of the most effective weapons in the Sunflower League. Through the Firebirds’ 6-2 start, McFarland has passed for 1,253 yards and 12 touchdowns and rushed for 803 yards and seven scores. Throw in his receiving yards, and he has accounted for 2,087 yards of total offense, good enough for second in the league. FSHS coach Bob Lisher said he thought McFarland would step in as the team’s new QB this year and do a good job. What the coach has seen since the junior’s debut in Week 1, a 21-point loss at Olathe South, is what he called “a ton” of progress. “There’s been a few bumps in the road, but he’s progressively gotten better,” Lisher said. Much better, in Please see fact. FriMCFARLAND, day, in page 3B leading


NFL scouts armed with eyes trained to detect subtle strengths and weaknesses, stopwatches, weight-room data, strength, agility and explosiveness tests, body measurements, background checks and tons of game film rate college prospects for their bosses to take into drafts. The rest of us simply have our addiction to trying to figure out which college players will make the best professionals, even if we never watch the pros. My guess at the best 11 NFL prospects on the Kansas University football roster, listed in reverse order with draft class in parentheses: 11. Bradley McDougald (2013): Still hasn’t put it all together and needs to prove he has a defensive player’s mentality, but has the size and athleticism that give him potential at safety. 10. Brandon Bourbon (2015): Hasn’t stayed healthy long enough to show what he can do, but has looked explosive when running the football and is only a freshman. 9. Jeff Spikes (2012): Left tackle really could have used the extra year of eligibility, but since just one of his two redshirt seasons was caused by an injury, Spikes won’t get a sixth season. An Achilles injury kept him from practicing in 2010, so he’ll leave Kansas having played just three seasons and having practiced just four. At 6-foot-6 and 325 pounds, he has the size, but needs to show he’s a relentless competitor. Also needs to cut down on penalties. 8. Tim Biere (2012): Surehanded, agile tight end has improved blocking skills and is a proven special-teams player. Lacks the speed of most NFL tight ends and isn’t as strong as the best-blocking tight ends, but he has a shot. 7. Jeremiah Hatch (2012): Agile for a man his size, Hatch has a shot to make it as a center. 6. Keeston Terry (2015): Safety doesn’t look like the same player as at the beginning of freshman season before he suffered a knee injury in the third game, but players often need to be two years removed from knee surgery to regain full strength. With three remaining seasons of eligibility after this year, Terry will get bigger. 5. Tony Pierson (2015): An athlete with the undersized Pierson’s blurry speed and ability to cut sharply and slither through small holes can work his way into the NFL as a situation running back, a return man, maybe even a cornerback. 4. Toben Opurum (2013): Sometimes still looks like a running back trying to transform into a defensive player, but his size, speed and strength make him a pro prospect either as an outside linebacker or a fullback. 3. Greg Brown (2013): It’s difficult for a cornerback to stand out on a defense that never makes the quarterback hurry into ill-advised throws and has extra time to let receivers spring open. Brown isn’t a finished product and needs to improve as a tackler, but he is an impressive cover man. 2. Tanner Hawkinson (2013): Has excellent feet, and if he continues to enhance his strength and refine his blocking technique, has a shot to earn a nice living playing football. 1. Duane Zlatnik (2013): If he were playing in an era when everybody was tagged with a nickname, he’d be known as IHOP for all the pancake blocks he delivers. Freakishly strong, he plays with a nastiness that wears out defenders.

LHS, FSHS eager to meet again By Corey Thibodeaux

There will be a Lawrence city showdown soccer champion after all. When Free State (9-6-2) and Lawrence High (7-7-3) met on Oct. 13, the teams played to a scoreless, double-overtime tie. Now that the teams are meeting again at 6 tonight in the 6A regional playoffs, only one team can emerge the victor. “It can’t end in a tie this time.” LHS coach Mike Murphy said. It was evident the first time around, but there is no shortage of talent on either side. FSHS is showcasing standout forwards Zack Thompson, Jake Walter and Hunter Peirce, while

LHS is sporting goalie Tanner Click, with Justin Riley and Zach Wustefeld anchoring the offense. Murphy doesn’t envision any wholesale changes for LHS from the first meeting. “Nothing too drastic,” he said on his adjustments for tonight. “We still had some opportunities in that game.” The Firebirds have homefield advantage once again, and if it’s anything like last time, the bleachers will be teeming with more fans than they can hold. Murphy said his Lions won’t be too worried about the location because it takes pressure off being the home team, and it is close enough to house their own fans. FSHS and LHS both play tough defense and make sure to

control the ball. It’s no wonder the teams tied last time. The opposing players are friends and work together during the offseason in club soccer, so there is a lot of familiarity, FSHS coach Kelly Barah said. “They know each other’s tendencies,” Barah said after the first matchup. “We’re trying to possess the ball and so are they.” LHS senior Chandler Thomann said this is obviously the biggest game of the year for either squad. Whatever the outcome, rest assured that there will be no shortage of shots or effort on either side. “That’s all Lawrence is,” Thomann said. “We just go for it. That’s the only way I was taught.”

Jayhawks wary of UT blitzkrieg By Matt Tait

Mike Fuentes/AP File Photo

TEXAS DEFENSIVE TACKLE KHEESTON RANDALL (91) pressures Oklahoma QB Landry Jones in this photo from Oct. 8 in Dallas. UT’s ability to get to opposing quarterbacks has Kansas concerned.

Through six games, the University of Texas football team has recorded eight sacks and six interceptions. Both are modest numbers that place the Longhorns near the bottom of the Big 12. In conference games, UT sits eighth in sacks — Kansas University is 10th, with four — and last in interceptions. But don’t let the numbers fool you. The Texas defense is nasty, and KU offensive coordinator Chuck Long knows it. “They are by far the most blitzing team we’ve faced, and probably the most I’ve ever seen since I’ve been in college football,” Long said. “They blitz from everywhere, in all kinds of ways.”

To this point, all of that blitzing, which has produced 47 quarterback pressures, has yet to yield the kind of big plays that first-year UT defensive coordinator Manny Diaz wants to see. “(Our focus) is being a little more dynamic in terms of our play-making, which is creating more turnovers, creating more negative plays,” Diaz said. “Not because we just think it is fun to do that, because it is, but that translates to winning football games. That’s scoring on defense. Things that, generally speaking, win you football games.” Long said this week’s game film included 140 different Texas blitzes. It should be pointed out that the number is a cumulative Please see TEXAS, page 3B

WVU not done deal just yet By Ralph D. Russo AP College Football Writer

The Big 12 is still deciding: West Virginia or Louisville? Could be one or the other, or maybe neither. Conference realignment took a strange turn Wednesday when, a day after it appeared that the Big 12 had decided West Virginia would eventually replace Missouri as the league’s 10th member, the Mountaineers’ Big East rival Louisville reentered the picture. The result was conflicting stories about what happened and a U.S. senator threatening an investigation — while the Big East was left to wonder not only if it had to replace another member, but which one. A person with knowledge of the Big 12’s discussions told the Associated Press that no decision was made by the conference to add West Virginia, and that Louisville is still a candidate to be invited to join. The person spoke Wednesday on condition of anonymity because the Big 12’s internal discussions are being conducted privately. The person added that a decision about expansion is not expected before next week. On Tuesday, West Virginia to the Big 12 seemed to be certain after the Big 12 board of directors met the Please see BIG 12, page 3B

Rainy weather postpones Game 6 ST. LOUIS (AP) — Colby Lewis and his Texas teammates casually tossed a ball in left field, trying to avoid the tarp and any anxiety about being so close to the World Series championship. On this day, the only winner was the weather. Game 6 was postponed Wednesday because of an accurate wet forecast, delaying the Rangers’ bid to clinch their first championship. Ahead 3-2, they can close out the St. Louis Cardinals tonight. It’s likely to be clear with temperatures in the low 50s at Busch Stadium. “We’re not getting antsy, we’re not getting ahead of ourselves. We just have to wait,� Texas manager Ron Washington said. Lewis is set to start against Jaime Garcia. If there’s a Game 7 Friday night, it’ll be Matt Harrison for Texas against, well, no telling. St. Louis manager Tony La Russa playfully mentioned the great Bob Gibson, but ace Chris Carpenter on three days’ rest looms as a possibility. “It’s already been asked about Carp,� La Russa said. “I was told by Carp that he would be ready to go.� The postponement came after a travel day for the teams. This two-day gap is the longest at the World Series since 1989, when the Bay Area earthquake left the Athletics and Giants idle for 11 days. “It’s just a rainout, that’s it,� Texas star Michael Young said. “I don’t know if people think we’re

We’re going to get something to eat, get some rest and be ready to go.� After a damp season and postseason, Major League Baseball announced the decision about 41⠄2 hours before the scheduled first pitch. At the time, no drops had fallen at the ballpark. “I’m not even sure why they canceled it,� Cardinals outfielder Lance Berkman said. “This is better than the weather for Game 1. I guess I’m going to lie back on the couch like a big, fat pig and watch a movie.�

OU ‘confused’ by Big 12 Network plan LAWTON, OKLA. (AP) — Oklahoma officials say they don’t understand how a proposed Big 12 Network could work considering that Texas already has an independent channel and the Sooners are working on one of their own. University president David Boren told the Associated Press on Wednesday that Oklahoma still plans to form its own network and that he was surprised the Big 12 went public with the consideration of a conference network. The same third-tier television rights control what would be aired on either a school’s channel or a conference channel. Oklahoma intends to keep those rights — just as Texas has in creating its Longhorn Network through a 20-year, $300 million deal with ESPN. So how could the Big 12 form a network without its two most powerful programs? “I don’t know because I don’t see quite how the conference network would work,� Boren told the AP. “I’m confused by that myself.� Athletic director Joe Castiglione said he, too, was caught off-guard when the Big 12 announced Monday that there were discussions by the league’s board of directors about creating a “conference dedicated TV network.� “I really don’t have the information to support why they made that statement,� Castiglione said, noting that athletic directors weren’t part of the board meeting. “It has not been broached, or at least not recently.� “Maybe they’re trying to build a consensus or excitement and anticipation,� he added. “I don’t know.� If recent developments in the Big 12 have shown anything, it’s that the conference — which has had its membership in flux for the past year and a half — still seems to be in a state of confusion. “My understanding is that schools that have their own network, such as the Longhorn Network, that would continue to exist and that the other schools would just bundle their third-tier rights collectively and form their own channel representing multiple institutions,� league spokesman Bob Burda said. Many of the league’s schools, including Oklahoma, already air their third-tier programming on the Internet or on television — just not on a network dedicated solely to one school. That includes games from football, men’s basketball and other sports that aren’t picked up through the league’s contracts with ABC/ESPN or Fox Sports. “Well, a conference network is to offset the Longhorn Network. But I saw the Sooners, I saw where they said they’d do their own network,� Oklahoma State booster T. Boone Pickens said. “I don’t know how this thing is going to turn out.� Boren said that Big 12 schools are in the process this week of signing and sending in their agreements to provide the conference their grant of television rights — a move that would allow the league to keep a school’s television revenue even if it leaves for another conference.

Maybe Berkman could’ve joined La Russa. The Cards manager planned to go see “Moneyball.� By late afternoon, a light mist turned to drizzle and then to steady rain. More showers were on the way throughout the night. This was the first Series washout since 2008 at Philadelphia. That year, Tampa Bay and the Phillies were tied in the sixth inning when rain and snow turned the field into a quagmire, forcing a suspension. It rained the next day, too, and the game finally resumed two days later, with the Phillies winning to take the crown.

Because of the debate about how to handle that situation the league office adopted a rule a few months later mandating that any postseason game stopped in progress would be resumed at the point of suspension, rather than being postponed and starting over. This marked the latest rainout at a Series since 1986, when Game 7 between the Red Sox and Mets was pushed back by a day. Busch Stadium has had weather woes in the past. In 2006, Game 4 between Detroit and the Cardinals was called.


NBA labor parties try to pick up the pieces NEW YORK — NBA owners and players were engaged in another marathon session Wednesday, meeting for more than 12 hours in talks aimed at ending the lockout. The two sides got back to the table with a small group meeting less than a week after three intense days of mediation didn’t produce a new labor deal. Negotiations broke down last Thursday when players said owners insisted they agree to a 50-50 split of revenues as a condition to further discuss the salary cap system. The first two weeks of the season already have been canceled, and there’s little time left to save any basketball in November. Commissioner David Stern has said he feared even games through Christmas would be in jeopardy if there wasn’t a deal last week.


NCAA to vote on rule changes INDIANAPOLIS — Mark Emmert and the NCAA’s board of directors are hoping to move quickly in changing college sports. The agenda for today’s meeting in Indianapolis is full of significant votes — postseason bans for poor classroom performance, adding $2,000 to scholarships, creating multi-year scholarships and changes to summer basketball recruiting. The board will also be asked to support a broad outline to shrink the massive rulebook and perhaps unlock the text-messaging ban.


Low blow costs player $20K EDEN PRAIRIE, MINN. — Minnesota Vikings defensive end Brian Robison has been fined $20,000 by the NFL for kicking Packers offensive lineman T.J. Lang in the groin during a game Sunday.

Robison received word of the fine Wednesday. He apologized to Lang, the league and the Vikings via Twitter on Sunday evening after he kicked Lang in the groin during a field-goal try in the second quarter of a 33-27 loss to the Packers.

The Padres will announce Josh Byrnes as Hoyer’s successor as general manager.

The deals have been in the works since Theo Epstein left his job as Boston Red Sox GM and was hired by the Cubs as president of baseball operations.

Fraschilla touts Self for Hall of Fame By Gary Bedore

Four active college basketball coaches — Syracuse’s Jim Boeheim, UConn’s Jim Calhoun, Duke’s Mike Krzyzewski and North Carolina’s Roy Williams — already have been inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame. ESPN analyst Fran Fraschilla on Wednesday identified three additional coaches as locks to be enshrined, sooner rather than later. They are: Kansas University’s Bill Self, Michigan State’s Tom Izzo and Louisville’s Rick Pitino.

“Bill Self has won 75 percent of his games as a head coach and has the Jayhawks’ 2008 national championship as part of his résumé,” said Fraschilla, who worked as head coach at Manhattan College, St. John’s and University of New Mexico before joining the cable TV network. “In addition, Self has taken 13 straight teams to the NCAA Tournament, a run that included six Elite Eight appearances. Although this year’s Kansas team is in transition, it’s almost impossible to imagine that the Jayhawks won’t be a perennial power,” Fraschilla added.

KU’s 2008 national title assuredly will draw the full attention of Hall of Fame committee members. Another key factor in Self’s likely induction is his team’s record in conference play. In the past 14 years, Self’s teams at KU, Illinois and Tulsa have won 11 conference crowns, placed second twice and third once. Self’s KU teams have won seven straight Big 12 titles after a second-place finish in 2003-04. The Jayhawks and Texas A&M recently were picked to place first in the Big 12 coaches’ preseason poll. “I’m not sure of that intel-


ligence level of guys that I coach against in our league when it comes to that stuff,” Self joked, acknowledging that it’ll be difficult this year after losing seven players from a 35-3 team. “I do think our guys were excited when they picked us one. I’ve been downplaying the whole thing with our guys. I think that was a little pick-me up: ‘Hey, people think we are going to be good.’ Our guys try hard. They care. Barring things uncontrollable, we could be a team that’s awfully hard to deal with before all is said and done.” Perhaps the most impor-

Big 12



Much better, in fact. Friday, in leading Free State to its sixth win in seven games, McFarland set a school passing record with 277 yards in a come-from-behind district victory. The QB admitted he and the team have come a long way since the first two weeks, which included a “not very pretty” win over Leavenworth. “After that,” McFarland said, “we started getting it together, and everything started to click, and we started winning games.” McFarland’s dual-threat ability in the backfield has been a significant part of that. Whether he’s dropping back to pass, carrying the ball on a designed run or scrambling to make a play, McFarland has made things happen for the Firebirds, senior guard Jimmy Fernandez said. “He’s been pretty much the key to our offense,” Fernandez said. “With him we can do about anything.” Part of what has made McFarland so successful, Lisher said, is his ability to scramble and keep his eyes up the field, scanning for an open receiver. And as the season goes on, the coach has gained increasing trust his QB to read the secondary. If there’s nothing there, Lisher knows McFarland can make something happen with his legs. “That’s what we continue to preach,” Lisher said. “If you don’t like it, don’t force it. Run the football, throw the football away. We don’t like sacks. We don’t like interceptions.” McFarland has only thrown eight picks in his 155 passing attempts. That, too, has improved with time. “He doesn’t force things as much as he used to,” Lisher said of the junior. “It just makes us a better team.” Team is a popular word among the Firebirds these days. McFarland said when he is improvising on the go, his teammates help him turn nothing into something.

night before. But the person with knowledge of the talks said “no real decision was made on Monday” and the Big 12 is not committed to any school. West Virginia athletic director Oliver Luck declined comment in a text message to the AP. However, another person with knowledge of the situation, also speaking on condition of anonymity because of the negotiations are not being made public, said West Virginia was preparing Tuesday to announce the move with a news conference on campus with Big 12 officials on Wednesday. The school and the league also were working on a news release when university leaders received a call from the conference telling them to put those plans on hold, the person said. “I think all of this should have great clarity within the next 10 days or less,” University of Oklahoma President David Boren said Wednesday after a regents meeting in Lawton, Okla. One thing seems sure — the Big 12 is going to need a replacement for Missouri, which has been working on a move to the Southeastern Conference. The person with knowledge of the Big 12’s discussions said conference officials are not holding out hope that Missouri will stay, but said West Virginia and Louisville should not be considered finalists to become the Big 12’s next member. “Those two certainly have been discussed a lot,” the person said. “And I wouldn’t rule out other schools just yet.” BYU also has been considered as a potential new member by the Big 12. The person said no meetings have been set up with Big 12 officials and schools outside the conference. “We’re still discussing among ourselves,” the person said.

But Long said predicting which ones the Longhorns would use and when has proved challenging. “There is no tendency that they have over there in blitzing,” he said. “Usually, you have a tendency like you do it more on third-and-long or second-and-long. These guys are all over the place on any down anywhere on the field. It becomes more of a guessing game, and you’re hoping that you can find a certain pattern that they’re doing in that first quarter. They do have patterns in games, but, man, they take pride in doing it all over the place. It could be one of those hit-and-miss games. It’s a little bit like gambling.” Never one to back down from a challenge, Long has spent the week searching for ways to handle the Longhorns’ pressure. Part of his time has been spent watching and rewinding tape. “I look for tips in film,” he said. “I have some tips already. And if I see those tips in the game, I know where

Kevin Anderson/Journal-World File Photo

FREE STATE QUARTERBACK KYLE MCFARLAND (15) SCRAMBLES against Shawnee Mission East in this file photo from Oct. 6 in Overland Park. “It helps when you can run on throws,” he said, “when the line opens up the holes and you can make plays on your feet.” And Lisher is the first to point out none of the team’s offensive success is the result of McFarland alone. “Kyle’s made plays, but he’s been given opportunities by the other guys around him,” he said. The coach noted running and passing lanes alike are open because of the work done by the Free State offensive line, runs from Shawn Knighton keep opposing defenses honest, and the receiving corps can make plays or block. From Ryan Patterson to Tye Hughes, on down the line to Keith Loneker, Calloway Schmidt and Chris Heller, the coach said he “could go on and on” about receivers doing a great job of blocking on the perimeter. “It’s tough to run the ball if your receivers don’t block very well, and we’ve been able to do that,” he said. It’s also tough to win without a solid defense, and Free State’s is best in the Sunflower League in points allowed, having given up just 14.6 a game. As much of an impact as McFarland has made on the offensive side of the ball, his job isn’t done when the FSHS defense takes the field. A starting cornerback, McFarland has shown the ability to limit or shut down the league’s two leading receivers, Olathe Northwest’s Willie Cauley and Olathe

North’s Tanner Gentry. Gentry had just one reception for 13 yards, and McFarland took an interception out of the air with the 6-10 Cauley on his back. The latter is a play that often gets brought up when McFarland’s defense is the subject. An athletic big man who has garnered basketball interest from SEC and Big 12 programs, Cauley couldn’t bring down that catch because McFarland used a basketball move. “I knew it was gonna go to him, and I was just trying to box him out a little,” McFarland recalled of what he described as an under-thrown ball. It was an athletic play that wowed McFarland’s FSHS teammates, Fernandez included. “Kyle’s had a lot of big plays,” the senior lineman said. “That was a crazy play.” The Firebirds hope he has some more of those in him when they take on crosstown rival Lawrence at 7 p.m. Friday in the regular-season finale. Though a victory over the Lions would earn FSHS a district title, McFarland’s teammates won’t expect him to be in their faces, spitting fiery words of encouragement. As Lisher put it: “He’s not a real rah-rah guy.” That’s fine with the other players, too, Fernandez said. “He’s calm and collected. He’s not ever panicky, he’s not ever down about anything,” Fernandez explained. “He keeps all of our spirits up.”

they’re coming from, and we make sure we cover that.” In order to handle the blitz, Long said the Jayhawks would have to be prepared in a variety of areas. Quarterback Jordan Webb will be Long’s eyes on the field and will be asked to get rid of the ball quickly when the blitz comes. Running backs James Sims, Darrian Miller, Tony Pierson and Brandon Bourbon will be schooled in pass protection, with those who pick it up fastest playing the most snaps. “The whole thing is making sure we’re protecting right,” Long said. “We feel most comfortable with James, but Darrian is getting better and better. He can stay on the field and pass-protect, too. He still has some work to do, but we’re feeling better about it. And we need to get him on the field.” In addition to asking those guys to pick up linebackers, safeties and cornerbacks coming from all areas of the field, the Jayhawks likely will turn to their ground game to limit the number of times UT brings the blitz. “We like our formula,” Long said. “I say it every week, our formula is to run the ball, and we like to get that run game going. That is

our mantra, and we like to stick with that. Teams that have gotten into a pass-happy contest with (Texas) have gotten beat and have got their quarterback hit.” Long also said utilizing different formations and personnel could “calm” the blitz and pointed to KU’s success on the ground in the first half against Oklahoma as proof that those tools and a sound running game could work. “Everybody has those formations that they don’t like to blitz,” Long said. “You just gotta find ’em. Sometimes they don’t show up on tape because other teams don’t use them. So it becomes a guessing game. The one thing about blitzing is (defenders) tend to get out of (their) gaps. In the run game, you might have some zero-yard gains, but all of a sudden you get the crease when guys get out of their gaps. The whole thing is staying patient with it.”

Shealy shares the love KU defensive coordinator Vic Shealy told reporters after Wednesday’s practice he knows the pressure is on and he feels the vibe from outside the program. In a way, that’s what inspires him to keep working so hard. “I’m not a KU grad, but I

love KU,” Shealy said. “I buy into what the KU brand is. So you want the KU alums to feel proud about the KU football program. You want this brand to look great nationally. When you’re not playing well, it bothers you in your gut. That matters.” Shealy said the challenge, for KU coaches and players alike, is to let the negative stuff roll off their backs and not get bogged down by bad days. “You just can’t let things outside of this building occupy you too much,” Shealy said. “I know the pressure’s on. I know this is a bottomline business. There’s no victory in things in this business other than what that scoreboard says. We all get that.”

Tharp to return KU coach Turner Gill said sophomore Huldon Tharp would be ready to play against Texas on Saturday. Tharp, a reserve linebacker and special-teams captain from Mulvane, missed a couple of weeks because of a rib injury. “I guess I’m kind of used to the whole injury thing,” Tharp said Wednesday. “There was a lot of pain so I was out for a couple of weeks, but it’s feeling good, and I’m ready to go.”

tant reason KU has dominated conference play in the Self era is the Jayhawks’ performance on the road. KU has compiled a 47-17 record in league road games in Self’s eight seasons at KU. Texas (35-29) is the only other school in the conference with a winning record in the same span. Other teams and their road records in the past eight seasons: Texas A&M (27-37), Kansas State (26-38), Oklahoma (23-41), Missouri (19-45), Oklahoma State (1945), Texas Tech (14-50), Baylor (12-52), Iowa State (10-54). Colorado, now of the Pac-12, went 10-54 and Nebraska of the Big Ten 15-49 in that span.

KU basketball straw poll During media day sessions in the last two weeks, I was able to talk to all 15 Kansas men’s basketball players to ask their opinions for an anonymous poll. Players were not allowed to vote for themselves. Here are the results, along with my thoughts on the outcomes:

Experience the tantalizing flavors of Europe, Latin America, Asia, the United States and more in your own back yard.

Jesse Newell

Lawrence Originals restaurants: Independent. Locally-owned. A world of unique cuisine with the delicious taste of Lawrence in every bite.



Question: Who is the best offensive player? Thoughts: This surprised me quite a bit, as I was actually expecting Thomas Robinson to win in a landslide. This shows the respect that teammates have for Taylor’s ability to drive and score. The fact that Elijah Johnson snagged a couple votes also could be a positive sign for KU in 2011-12.

Question: Who is the best defensive player? Thoughts: Releford should have the chance to thrive this year, and he has the length and quickness to become one of the best perimeter defenders in the league. KU coach Bill Self just has to hope that injuries don’t force Releford into the post. If Robinson or Withey were to go down with an injury, Releford would quickly become one of KU’s only options left to play inside, a role he accepted last season because of KU’s depth. The hope, of course, will be that everyone stays healthy, and Releford is allowed to thrive on the wing.

Question: Who is the best newcomer? (Thirteen of the 15 players were interviewed on Oct. 13 when both Jamari Traylor and Ben McLemore were still expected to play.) Thoughts: This illustrates how big of a blow KU suffered when McLemore was ruled a partial qualifier by the NCAA. Like Self often says, no one will be feeling sorry for KU, but B-Mac appeared to be set to play major minutes this season. Young will be an important player for KU, as the Jayhawks desperately need depth in the post. Tharpe, meanwhile, appears to be in the Aaron Miles mold as a pass-first point guard.

Question: Who is the best leader?

Concert underwriters: 23rd Street Brewery, Lawrence, Kansas Abe and Jake’s Landing, Lawrence, Kansas Lutheran Campus Ministry at the University of Kansas, Lawrence, Kansas Good Shepherd Lutheran Church, Lawrence, Kansas Trinity Lutheran Church, Lawrence, Kansas

Thoughts: I was surprised by the results on this question as well. I expected a few more Robinsons and Teahans, but this just shows that this is Taylor’s team. This year, the Jayhawks are relying more on Taylor than ever, and because of that, they can’t afford a silly suspension or off-the-court antics from him. My gut tells me that this will be the year where he keeps himself out of trouble and plays every game for KU.


Question: If you couldn’t play for KU, which Big 12 school would you most want to play for? Thoughts: Though I tried to get responses from every player, a few said they wouldn’t be in the Big 12 if they didn’t play at KU. I was mostly just asking to see which Big 12 school the players most respected, and, not too surprisingly, Texas was at the top of the list.

to consider your own welfare. We recommend you talk to an attorney to make sure you are protected. You may need to sell the house and move into a smaller, more affordable place. Decide whether you wish to “date” Harry, relocate to his hometown or divorce him. Some short-term counseling could help with these decisions, and although it would be useful for Harry to go with you, if he refuses, please go without him. Dear Annie: I share a job with “Joan,” my co-worker. We each know what tasks have to be done, and together, we are responsible for making sure everything gets done. Frequently, when Joan is off doing one thing, I will start on another. I am not the type to sit around doing nothing until she is free to start the next task. When she returns, she invariably says, “I can help with

Vulgar teens: Old, new and eternal Half the fun of watching television is ridiculing it. In the early 1990s, TV producers decided that it wasn’t enough to broadcast stuff, but that they had to make jokes about the programming, or “deconstruct it,” at the same time. Suddenly, audiences weren’t encouraged to even make snarky comments on the couch about the shows they were watching. It was being done for them. Shows like “Mystery Science Theater 3000” and “Pop Up Video” became popular. And MTV introduced “Beavis and Butt-Head,” two idle and oddly opinionated teens who made lewd comments about MTV’s videos while wearing shorts that exposed their skinny little legs. A new “Beavis and Butt-Head” (9 p.m., MTV) arrives tonight, offering rude observations about a newer era of MTV programming, including “Jersey Shore” and “16 and Pregnant.” In some ways, it seems like nothing’s changed since 1993. But that’s hardly true. MTV programming consists almost entirely of reality series. And Mike Judge has spent the past few decades creating “King of the Hill” and the cult movie “Office Space,” as well as the misanthropic failure “Idiocracy” in 2006. As a crude little cartoon filled with young kids spouting social satire, “Beavis and Butt-Head” has also been totally eclipsed by “South Park.” Still, it’s interesting to see some aspects of the early 1990s return. Can “Wayne’s World III” be far behind? Where’s Arsenio Hall when you need him?

To accompany “Beavis,” MTV introduces “Good Vibes” (9:30 p.m.), a cartoon about an obese kid from New Jersey who moves to a California beach town with his voluptuous mother. Half of the humor consists of a pudgy kid at sea in a body and beach culture; the other half is based on his mother stumbling into crude and obvious sexual innuendos. Help yourself.

“Project Runway” (8 p.m., Lifetime) chooses a ninth winner in a 90-minute finale. “Project Accessory” (9:30 p.m.) follows, hosted by Molly Sims. “Accessory” will move into its regular 9 p.m. slot beginning Nov. 3.

Tonight’s other highlights

The just-canceled “Charlie’s Angels” makes way for the 1966 special, “It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown” (7 p.m., ABC), arguably the best of the Peanuts specials.

A new subject projects beauty and mystery on “Person of Interest” (8 p.m., CBS).

Andy and Robert have very different visions for the Halloween party on “The Office” (8 p.m., NBC).

Jenny McCarthy appears on “The Millionaire Matchmaker” (8 p.m., Bravo).

A resort town loses its police chief on “The Mentalist” (9 p.m., CBS).

A murder in the park sparks a massive search for a killer on “Prime Suspect” (9 p.m., NBC).

A board game beckons on “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” (9 p.m., FX).

I’ve said, “Sure,” but what I really want to say is, “You don’t need an invitation.” However, I don’t think that would go over well. Today, a phone call needed to be made. Joan sent me a note asking about it, and I took care of it. She then confronted me, saying she would have done it herself but I “took over.” She has been doing this job longer than I have, so why does she seem so insecure? What can I do when this happens again? — Diana in Detroit

Baseball Hall-of-Famer and sportscaster Ralph Kiner is 89. Actress Ruby Dee is 87. Actorcomedian John Cleese is 72. Producer-director Ivan Reitman is 65. Country singer-musician




Dear Diana: Some people need constant reassurance that they are valued. You don’t have to cater to Joan’s insecurity, but it helps to get along with coworkers. Tell her you aren’t trying to “take over” and that you simply wa nt to get the job done and divide the work so neither of you is overextended. Inform her before making a phone call to ensure you aren’t repeating something she has already done. Periodically ask her opinion. Reassure her that the office would collapse without her. It requires little effort for you to give her the impression that she is important. Ignore the rest.

JACQUELINE BIGAR’S STARS For Thursday, Oct. 27: This year you sparkle and express high energy. You could be overwhelmed by all the possibilities. Your biggest challenge will be choosing the appropriate course of action. If you are single, you meet many potential sweeties. If you are attached, remember your partner — he or she deserves your time and attention. Be sensitive to his or her needs. Scorpio pushes you hard. The Stars Show the Kind of Day You’ll Have: 5-Dynamic; 4-Positive; 3-Average; 2-So-so; 1-Difficult Aries (March 21-April 19)  Remind others of the very fiery and abrupt personality you can manifest. Allow your creativity to fill in the blanks. Tonight: Let your hair down. Relax with a loved one. Taurus (April 20-May 20)  If you can stay open to extremely assertive people, you will feel OK by the end of the process. A family member could be difficult beyond what you imagine. Tonight: Let another person choose. Gemini (May 21-June 20)  Your imagination takes another twist or turn. You might feel as if

someone doesn’t hear your point of view. This, too, will pass. Stay centered. Tonight: Make it easy. Cancer (June 21-July 22)  Allow greater creativity to flow into your work. Be careful with spending, as you could go overboard. Express your caring in a manner in which the other party can hear it. Tonight: Having fun. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)  Anchor in and get to the bottom of the problem. You could be questioning how to handle your frustration and perhaps anger. Tonight: Head home. Put your feet up. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)  Keep talking and opening doors. Suppressing your feelings would be a mistake, as they will come out in some form. Tonight: Visit over dinner. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)  You will want to make a difference. Others might alternate between coaxing, manipulating and a saccharine attitude. Tonight: Tumbling into the weekend spirit.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22Dec. 21)  Rethink a personal matter. Much is going on in your mind, but your ideas might not be ripe. Tonight: Vanish for a while. Capricorn (Dec. 22Jan. 19)  You might want to rethink a situation involving a meeting, and perhaps a personal wish or goal, with greater care. Tonight: Meet where people are.

Dear Annie: My husband, “Harry,” and I have been married for 32 years. Recently, he lost his job because of disability. I work two jobs to support the family. Six months ago, Harry suggested we sell our house and move to his old hometown two hours away. I refused because of my jobs and our children, who live near us. Harry says he spends too much time alone while I work. He also doesn’t like that I have the grandchildren over, saying I care more for them (and my job) than I do for him. I know he feels bad because he cannot work, and I have tried to find him hobbies. He has been visiting his hometown twice a week. At first, I thought he had someone else on the side, but he says he just likes to be there. It’s comfortable. Now he says he is going to move to his hometown without me. He told me he still wants to “date” and stay in our home once a week so he can see the grandchildren and work on our marriage. I am confused. It seems Harry isn’t sure he’s still in love with me. Now I will have to find a third job just to make the house payment. I am so hurt and angry. What should I do? — Nervous Nellie Dear Nellie: We think Harry is depressed and adrift. His hometown provides a soothing cocoon and a reminder of better times. Right now, you need
