Gov. Sam Brownback and Republican legislative leaders on Friday unveiled a plan they said would protect Kansans who pay property taxes. The Property Tax Transparency Act would require property tax mill levies to be automatically lowered as property valu- Brownback ations go up. Local units of government that have taxing authority and want to increase their property taxes would be required to vote to increase the mill levy. “Kansas families and businesses are taxed every time

Time marches on in homecoming parade By Adam Strunk

Will Cooper hasn’t marched as a student in the Kansas University homecoming parade since 1985. Cooper, who played with the KU Alumni Band as part of Friday’s parade, said things change over 27 years. “My heart rate’s way faster, and my breathing is harder,” Cooper said. But he added that other things stay the same. “It’s just cold,” he said. Hundreds braved the 30 degree weather to

watch the parade along Jayhawk Boulevard and attend the pep rally afterward at the Adams Alumni Center to celebrate KU’s 100th homecoming. The parade began with the KU Band, followed by international students bearing the flags of their country and Kansas University runner and Olympian Diamond Dixon. Also marching was the Richard Gwin/Journal-World Photo Army ROTC unit, and, of course, there were FRATERNITY MEMBERS OF ALPHA TAU OMEGA Josh Cook, left, and Sean Jones carry a banner to help kick off the floats. 2012 KU Homecoming parade Friday on Jayhawk Please see PARADE, page 2A Boulevard.

A 33-year-old Topeka man died following a single-vehicle accident in a neighborhood west of the Chi Omega fountain on the Kansas University campus. Lawrence Police Sgt. Trent McKinley said Adrian J. Garcia died at Lawrence Memorial Hospital following the accident at the intersection of Crescent and Spencer streets that happened shortly after midnight. Garcia was in a vehicle that struck a utility pole. Garcia and another person in the vehicle then fled the scene. Police later located the other person and Garcia, who was badly injured and later died at the hospital. The other person in the vehicle did not require medical attention, McKinley said. Garcia was a member of the Lawrence High School football team from 1995-1997. — Reporter Shaun Hittle can be reached at 832-7173.

Moran touts LMH’s electronic records system When it comes to the use of electronic medical records to administer care, U.S. Sen. Jerry Moran, R-Kan., says Lawrence Memorial Hospital is a model. Moran stopped by LMH on Friday afternoon for a tour to see how the hospital’s pharmacy uses computer systems to control the ordering and the delivery of medication. On his mind, he said, was how smaller hospitals in other parts of the state might be able to make use of the same technology. “I would guess that many hospitals in Kansas would see Lawrence Memorial Hospital and wish they had the opportunity to do this,” Moran said. LMH first began using electronic medical records in 2004, and

now every aspect of medicine delivery is controlled by the hospital’s digital sysMoran tem. Doctors record their medicine orders electronically, and nurses scan barcodes that record which medication is being delivered to which patient by whom. All of that control cuts down on mistakes, pharmacist Greg Burger told Moran as they stood in a medication room Friday where drugs are measured and dispensed by an electronic system. Moran said the hospital obviously had a top-flight system in place. “They have a lot to brag about here,” Moran said. In 2012, LMH was named for the second

straight year as one of the top 100 “Most Wired” hospitals in the country by the publication Hospitals & Health Networks. Many smaller hospitals in rural areas of the states likely lack the resources to install such extensive systems, Moran said, however much they might like to. He said he’d like such care to be available to all Kansans. But he said that the hospital’s achievements could serve as evidence for Kansas University students that, when they graduate, they won’t need to leave the state to be working in the forefront of innovation in fields such as health care. “If you want to excel in medicine, you can do it in Kansas,” Moran said.


erty owners confidence that their property taxes aren’t going to increase the way they have in the past while still giving local units of government flexibility to increase taxes if they need more tax money.” Wagle said property tax revenues collected in the state went from $1.97 billion in 1997 to $3.8 billion in 2010. Rep. Steve Brunk, RWichita, who has pushed similar proposals in the past, said, “Just because the value of your home or business has gone up, doesn’t mean that local governments’ spending should go up.” But Douglas County Commissioner Mike Gaughan, a Democrat, said Brownback’s proposal was meant to deflect attention from projections that the Brownback tax cuts will produce significant revenue shortfalls and push more costs onto local governments. “In Douglas County we’ve picked up costs to keep the (Kansas Department of Social and Rehabilitation Services) office open, to handle the state’s new vehicle registrations software, to implement (Secretary of State) Kris Kobach’s phony voter fraud laws, and to keep our courts open and operating,” Gaughan said. “The governor’s income tax cuts will force school districts and local governments to raise property taxes to pay for the basics like public schools and water quality. So this isn’t a surprise. Blaming others is what they do best.”

resented within the floats. The KU Army ROTC had members dressed in military outfits spanning eras from the Revolutionary War to the present. Many other floats featured the evolution of the Jayhawk mascot over the last 100 years. After the parade finished, the crowd headed over to the Adams Alumni Center to cheer as the band led the crowd in the fight song and the alma mater. Perhaps the loudest cheers of the night came when Dixon pulled out her Olympic gold medal to show to the crowd, and expressed how happy she was to bring it back to Lawrence. When someone asked her if she’d do it again in four years she responded, “Call me Diamond Rio,” jokingly referencing the band as well as the 2016 Summer Olympics host Rio d e Janeiro.


In the mix was the Alumni Band with Cooper playing trumpet, blaring out a pretty good rendition of the fight song. “We just meet up 30 minutes before, play the songs a couple of times and we’re going,” Cooper said. Raymond Remp, of Topeka and a graduate of the class of 1987, said he liked the entire parade but that the marching bands were his favorite part. “It kind of reminded me of the parade in ‘Animal House,’” he said. “First came the band, then the Army and then the greeks.” The year’s homecoming theme of “A century long, tradition strong” was rep-

Following his enactment of massive income tax cuts, Brownback said the next step is to make property taxes more transparent. But Democrats said Brownback rejected their calls for property tax reductions in the last legislative session so that he could give tax cuts to wealthy businesses. The Brownback tax cuts will exempt the owners of 191,000 partnerships, sole proprietorships and other businesses from income taxes. The package also decreases individual income tax rates for 2013, with the top rate dropping to 4.9 percent from 6.45 percent, and increases the standard deduction. Democrats, who have claimed property taxes should be cut instead of income taxes, said Brownback is posturing on property taxes less than two weeks before Republicans and Democrats face off in legislative races across the state. “The governor has spent the last year ignoring proposals to reduce property taxes,” Rep. Jim Ward, D-Wichita, said. “Kansas common sense says you have to question his commitment to his new conversion on property taxes.” And Lawrence City Manager David Corliss

— Lawrence City Manager David Corliss said he was unsure what the new proposal would require that cities aren’t already doing as far as transparency about property taxes. Current state law requires local governing bodies to adopt ordinances if property tax revenues for the budget exceed the previous year. “Somebody might want to read the budget law and see what we actually have to do now before they try to tack on another requirement,” Corliss said. “What we really do feel strongly about is local decisions should be made locally,” Corliss added. “I don’t want someone on the third floor of the Statehouse telling us how to spend or raise our money. If the Legislature wants to add more process, we can add more process.” Corliss said that city finances are transparent. Budget, spending and employee salaries are on the city’s website, he said. But Sen. Susan Wagle, R-Wichita, who appeared with Brownback at a news conference in Wichita on the property tax transparency proposal, said the measure “will give Kansas prop-

KU football player gets DUI diversion A Kansas University football player has entered into a diversion agreement with city prosecutors on a drunken-driving charge. Justin E. Carnes, a 21-yearold junior and a long snapper on the team, signed a diversion agreement Tuesday for his DUI arrest Aug. 25 in the 400 block of Missouri Street. As long as Carnes follows the terms of the diversion, which include obeying the law and refraining from alcohol or

drug use, the charge will be dropped after a year. Carnes is also responsible for paying about $1,000 in court costs and must undergo an alcohol evaluation. Following the arrest, KU football coach Charlie Weis suspended Carnes for the first three games of the season. In April, Weis also suspended running back James Sims for three games after a drunkendriving arrest.

KU Endowment funds fall on market, but donations strong By Matt Erickson

FROM LEFT, KANSAS UNIVERSITY CHANCELLOR BERNADETTE GRAY-LITTLE and retiring Kansas Speaker of the House Mike O’Neal, who is the new president and CEO of the Kansas Chamber of Commerce, watch as KU engineering student Amir Bachelani and Glen Marotz, associate dean of the School of Engineering, break ground during an event Friday to celebrate the start of construction on a Learned Hall engineering school expansion. The new $80 million, 125,000 square-foot building will accommodate growth in the student body and faculty.

Engineering expansion breaks ground By Matt Erickson

Kansas University Chancellor Bernadette Gray-Little remembered Friday morning what she and Kansas Senate President Steve Morris talked about the first time they

met, before she had even taken office: how KU could help produce more engineers for Kansas. That conversation, and many others, led to the scene outside of KU’s engineering complex early Friday morning. Leaders from the state and KU braved

chilly temperatures for a ceremonial groundbreaking for an $80 million expansion for the School of Engineering. Gray-Little and other speakers told a crowd of administrators, faculty, students and others that the expansion would serve as a

boost to the Kansas economy as well as the future of engineering in the state. “As the state’s flagship university, and as the home of the state’s topranked school of engineering,” Gray-Little said, “the

Declining investment performance contributed to a fall in value for the KU Endowment’s funds during the 2012 fiscal year, the association announced Friday. But the Endowment Association has made substantial progress in its “Far Above” campaign this year, with donors contributing nearly $100 million since its public launch in April. All in all, the campaign’s contributions have totaled $708 million toward a goal of $1.2 billion. Those figures were announced at the annual meeting of the association’s board of trustees Friday at the KU Edwards Campus in Overland Park. Equity markets were down around the world during the 2012 fiscal year, which ended June 30, said Dale Seuferling, KANSAS endowment president. UNIVERSITY That led to a 3.4 percent decline in the value of the endowment’s long-term investments, he said. “It’s kind of subject to that volatility in the market,” Seuferling said. The market value of the association’s endowed funds fell to $1.18 billion from $1.25 billion as of June 2011. The value of all of its assets, which also include real estate and other holdings, came to $1.6 billion as of June 30, down from $1.65 billion a year before. Seuferling noted, though, that markets have rebounded since the end of June. From Jan. 1 to Sept. 30, the value of the association’s long-term investments grew by 4.8 percent.

Growing deficit is critical issue in presidential race By Dolph C. Simons Jr.

How many voters in the upcoming presidential election will have given serious attention to the major issues facing this country and how will this affect for whom they vote? Will the majority of voters merely vote the party line whether this favors every Democratic candidate or every Republican candidate? There are very serious issues at stake, issues that could and probably will affect every citizen in the country in one way or another. The national debt and how Washington officials may decide to tackle this monster are likely to affect Lawrence. For example, federal funds may be cut that have been directed toward student aid at Kansas University, and the city may lose funding from the state because of cutbacks in money the state has been receiving from Washington. The city has many costly road projects in the planning stage and these could be reduced, delayed or possibly eliminated. Federal grants or research grants to KU could be trimmed or eliminated. Any program or activity in Lawrence that receives federal fiscal assistance, and many state programs, all could be reduced

substantially because of major reductions in federal spending. New tax policies also could color private giving to KU, which has played such an important role in the university’s success. It’s likely a high percentage of voters are numb about the election because campaigning to win the 2012 presidential election has been going on, in one way or another, since the day after Barack Obama won the election in November 2008. His aides and political strategists have been working since that time on his re-election, and most every action and policy he has endorsed probably has been reviewed and tested to see how it will play with voters and affect his political popularity. Following Sen. John McCain’s defeat, Republican hopefuls began jockeying for position and prominence in their races for the GOP presidential nomination. The public has been saturated with campaign messages and partisan ads making the 2012 election the most costly in this country’s history. It’s almost obscene how much money — approaching $2 billion — has been spent by both parties. The saying “to the victor belong the spoils” certainly applies to political elections with winners able to staff thousands

of well-paying jobs, muscle through legislation that may be more favorable to those who supported their candidacy and many others ways of rewarding party faithful.

COMMENTARY But the saying “to the victor belong the spoils” should be modified or expanded to say “to the victor belong the spoils AND the responsibility and obligation to do what is in the best interests of the country.” This nation has become so deeply divided that Congress is deadlocked, and, consequently, the country is stalemated, standing still rather than getting stronger. There are terribly important issues before the voters. The dangers and consequences of the ever-growing national debt cannot be overstated. This situation, no matter how it is addressed, will affect every American in one way or another. There is no more important issue. President Obama promised to cut the debt in half during his first term in office. Sadly, it has increased by $6 trillion to the present $16 trillion-plus figure. If there is any chance to

control and reduce this dangerous debt, challenger Romney or President Obama will have to initiate new and effective programs that are sure to be tough and painful and will affect every citizen. Do voters consider this when entering the voting both? If so, which candidate do they believe can get the job done? Obama’s record over the past three years is bad, very bad. Romney’s is untested at the national level. Millions of Americans rely on federal aid in one form or another. Millions don’t pay any income taxes. Have they become so dependent on this aid and so fearful of losing it through cutbacks or new legislation that might be necessary to rein in the national debt that they will decide to vote for Obama and four more years of his failed policies? Do voters believe Romney’s policies can create 12 million new jobs in four years, initiate the necessary cuts in federal government spending and get Americans to be energy independent — all combining to help reduce the national debt? The debt matter touches all other issues facing this country and, at some time, it has to be addressed through serious actions by the White House and

Congress with the support of the majority of Americans. Which candidate, Obama or Romney, has the record and firsthand experience in business that is so critical for our country? And which candidate has the record and experience of working with differing legislative interests to win bipartisan support for badly needed legislation? Obama and his strategists have been unable to negotiate, and, as a result, there is a crippling standoff in Congress. He has been unable to work or forge a working relationship with the Republican majority in the House. There has been little reaching across the aisle by Sen. President Harry Reid or Rep. Nancy Pelosi. As governor of Massachusetts, Romney was able to pass legislation he favored even with Democrats enjoying more than an 80 percent majority in the state legislature. Would he be able to develop a similar relationship with Congress if he were elected? No one knows for sure, but he did it in Massachusetts, and he certainly has the business background and experience Obama lacks. Again, will voters vote a straight party line or will they vote for what they think is in the best interests of their country?

Central Mustangs take Fun Run at full gallop



Richard Gwin/Journal-World Photos

LIBERTY MEMORIAL CENTRAL MIDDLE SCHOOL students make a run for it during the school’s annual Fun Run on Friday to raise awareness about physical fitness as well as money for the school. At right, Central computer teacher Scott Forkenbrock used the run to his advantage in training for the New York City Marathon, in which he will compete on Nov. 4.


University of Kansas has special responsibility to contribute to the vitality and prosperity of the state.” The project will make use of $35 million in funding approved by the state in 2011 to support engineering expansions at KU, Kansas State and Wichita State universities. The remaining cost will be paid through other university funds and a fundraising effort conducted with the help of the KU Endowment. As interim Engineering Dean Stan Rolfe emphasized during an introduction Friday morning, that fundraising is ongoing. “It’s also a partnership among the alumni who have and who will help us support this building,” Rolfe said to laughs from the crowd. The expansion includes two buildings: a four-story, 110,000-square-foot building at the engineering complex dedicated largely to teaching, and a 30,000-square-foot building on KU’s West Campus devoted to research and development. As of now, both are unnamed. The larger building will serve as a front door to the engineering complex, JoAnn Browning, the engineering school’s associate dean for administration said after Friday’s groundbreaking. “We’re really trying to create a place where it’s central to all student needs,” Browning said. That building will attach to the north end of the school’s other new building, the Measurement, Materials and Sustainable Environment Center, which was just dedicated earlier this month. It will connect that building with the rest of the engineering complex, and it will replace Burt Hall.

It will also be a major benefit for our students, and it’s going to be a truly attractive lure to bring the very, very best faculty to teach those students.” — Provost Jeff Vitter The building will include six new classrooms and eight new teaching laboratories to accommodate the growing number of engineering students at KU.

Accommodating growth Spurred in part by calls from the state to produce more engineers for Kansas companies, the school enrolled a record 2,151 students this fall. Its freshman class grew by 22 percent from 2011. The new building on the main campus also will include space for programs designed to help students stay in the engineering school and graduate, including study areas, student meeting rooms and a new space for the Engineering Career Center. The smaller building on West Campus will have a facility for research and development of systems used in bridges or other structures. Provost Jeff Vitter, speaking at the groundbreaking, noted that the new buildings’ research facilities would help as the university seeks to hire 30 new engineering faculty members over the next few years. “It will also be a major benefit for our students, and it’s going to be a truly attractive lure to bring the very, very best faculty to teach those students,” Vitter said.

Home-grown approach Morris, the outgoing Kansas Senate president, appeared Friday morning, along with outgoing Kansas House Speaker Mike O’Neal. Both recalled that talks with the state’s universities about producing more engineers began in 2007 and 2008 and endured challenges as the state and the country weathered a recession. The state’s effort was prompted largely by Kansas engineering companies, Morris said. Without enough engineers being developed within the state, he said, those companies often had to hire people from the coasts. “Those folks would work out fine for two or three years, or however long it took for them to get good and trained,” Morris said. “And then they’d find opportunities in other places. They didn’t have the loyalty to the state, so they’d go someplace else.” Browning said construction on both new buildings is set to begin in the spring. The West Campus building is scheduled to be complete in 2014, but work on the larger building on the main campus will take until 2015. She noted that though that’s a few years off, it will be soon enough for members of this year’s large freshman class to make use of the new building before they graduate. — Kansas University reporter Matt Erickson can be reached at 832-6388.

Friday in connection with a stabbing in July. Matilda Ornelas pleaded no contest to aggravated battery July 30 as part of an agreement with prosecutors. Ornelas was arrested days after a 37-year-old Lawrence man was taken on July 12 to Lawrence Memorial Hospital with two stab wounds to his torso. Police determined the man was stabbed in connection with an earlier disturbance in the 1100 block of Tennessee Street. The man’s injuries required surgery. During sentencing, prosecutors told Douglas County District Judge Paula Martin the man asked that Ornelas not receive jail or prison time.

Drought damage goes beyond crops By Marcy Gordon and Paul Wiseman Associated Press

WASHINGTON — The worst drought in decades didn’t just shrivel corn and soybeans. It shrank economic growth too. The government said Friday that the U.S. economy grew at a modest 2 percent annual rate from July through September. And the crop-killing drought reduced growth by 0.4 percentage points. That means normal weather would have lifted economic growth to 2.4 percent for the quarter, the Commerce Department said. Below are questions and answers about the drought and its effect on gross domestic product. GDP is the broadest measure of the economy. Q: How severe was the drought? A: The dry spell that hit the Midwest and Great Plains last summer was the worst since the 1950s. It covered 80 percent of U.S. farmland. The drought hit hardest in July, a critical time for corn and other crops. Corn production is expected to drop more than 13 percent in the 2012-2013 growing season. Soybean production will likely fall 8 percent. Cattle, sheep and pig farmers are getting hit, too: The cost of feed is rising, and pastures have withered in the heat. Q: How did the drought reduce economic growth? A: Mainly by reducing crop supplies. Smaller supplies cut growth by 0.17 percent point from April to June and by 0.42 percentage point from July through September. Jeet Dutta, a senior economist at Moody’s Analytics, says he thinks the worst is over. He expects the drought’s impact on growth to diminish to 0.1 percentage point in the final three months of 2012. Q: Does the economic damage go beyond the farm? A: Yes, because GDP figures don’t capture, for example, higher food prices that can follow a drought. And farmers hit by a drought typically cut back on purchases of farm equipment, vehicles and other goods. That can hurt merchants in farm country and damage that part of the economy. Ernie Goss, an economics professor

at Creighton University in Omaha, says Midwest merchants are expecting a weak holiday season in part because farmers have curtailed their spending. And the drought led to lower water levels in the Mississippi River that stranded barges, causing costly shipping delays. Q: How does the economic damage from droughts compare with the damage from other natural disasters? A: Hurricanes and earthquakes can reduce economic growth by disrupting production and consumer spending. But once the earth has stopped shaking and the winds have died down, communities can rebuild, boosted by insurance payouts and federal aid. Reconstruction can help the overall economy. By contrast, crops killed by drought can’t be recovered. “It’s a one-shot-a-year production practice for corn and soybeans,” said Todd Davis, an economist at the American Farm Bureau Federation. Q: Have farmers’ incomes suffered? A: Despite the drought, the U.S. Agriculture Department expects farm incomes to hit $122 billion this year, highest since 1973 when adjusted for inflation. They’ve benefited from higher prices for their crops and livestock. And government-subsidized crop insurance helps cushion the damage. Congress has been promoting crop insurance since the 1990s, notes economist Mekael Teshome of the PNC Financial Services Group. Q: What is the effect on American consumers? A: Prices for corn and soybeans in commodity markets have probably just about peaked, PNC says. But it will take three to six months for higher food prices to work their way through the food chain, says Dutta of Moody’s. The Agriculture Department expects food prices to rise between 3 percent and 4 percent next year. That would be up from an average of 2.5 percent to 3 percent over the past 20 years.

CORRECTIONS A statement about voter identification in the Oct. 22 editorial, “Discouraging numbers,” requires clarification. Student photo IDs issued by any accredited college or university in Kansas, including private institutions such as Baker University, are valid at the polls. However, faculty and staff IDs issued by private colleges or universities are not. Another wrinkle of the law, Douglas County Clerk Jamie Shew said, is that student IDs issued by public high schools are valid, but IDs issued by private high schools are not. Shew emphasized, however, that “no one is going to be turned away” from the polls because of insufficient identification. They can cast a provisional ballot, he said, and present a valid ID later.

Drake Hofer, a senior football player at Lawrence High School, is also a member of LHS’ a cappella choir. The school affiliation of the choir was incorrect in a story Friday.

Democrats apologize for inaccurate mailers By Scott Rothschild

TOPEKA — The Kansas Republican Party slammed Democrats for sending out campaign mailers in two legislative races that falsely state two GOP legislators voted for a bill when they voted against it. Democrats said they made a mistake and issued an apology Friday. The mailers cited votes in favor of the state budget bill in 2011, which included record school cuts. The two legislators — Jana Goodman of Leavenworth and Joseph Scapa of Wichita — voted against

that specific bill even though earlier in the 2011 session, Goodman and Scapa voted for a bill that would have cut schools even more. “Despite having internal protocols to ensure that misstatements of facts such as these do not occur, the KDP failed to catch this,” said Kansas Democratic Party Chairwoman Joan Wagnon. “We will offer our apology publicly and are issuing this release to set the voting records of Reps. Scapa and Goodman straight.” Kansas Republican Party Executive Director Clay Barker criti-

cized the state Democratic Party. “Spin and opinions are one thing, but flat-out lying about a representative’s past votes on a specific bill is contemptible and smacks of desperation,” Barker said. Wagnon said that when the mistake was discovered, she immediately called Goodman and Scapa to apologize. Goodman faces Democrat Melanie Meier and Scapa faces Democrat Patricia Sloop in the Nov. 6 election. — Statehouse reporter Scott Rothschild can be reached at 785-423-0668.

Police officer cannibal case tests lines of fantasy, threat NEW YORK — In Internet chats as breezy as they were bizarre, a police officer accused of plotting to kidnap and eat as many as 100 women was once cautioned not to be wasteful when cooking a victim because “there is nearly 75 pounds of food there.” But no one was ever actually harmed in Gilberto Valle’s alleged plot, let

alone eaten. And a defense attorney says the officer was merely engaging in harmless Internet fantasy. Where exactly the line is drawn between bizarre talk and a true plot has emerged as the key question in a case that has shocked even the most jaded New Yorkers. Indeed, experts say many people have a compulsion to

create horrific scenarios about cannibalism, and that the Internet allows them to indulge in their dark side anonymously and — usually — safely. “There is a big difference between discussing, and even fantasizing about this type of activity and actually carrying it out,” said Jeffrey Parsons, a psychologist at Hunter College.

Year after Irene, U.S. prepares for Sandy By Brock Vergakis and Wayne Parry Associated Press

DUCK, N.C. — A year after being walloped by Hurricane Irene, residents rushed to put away boats, harvest crops and sandbag boardwalks Friday as the Eastern Seaboard braced for a rare megastorm that experts said would cause much greater havoc. Hurricane Sandy, moving north from the Caribbean, was expected to make landfall Monday night near the Delaware coast, then hit two winter weather systems as it moves inland, creating a hybrid monster storm that could bring nearly a foot of rain, high winds and up to 2 feet of snow. Experts said the storm would be wider and stronger than last year’s Irene, which caused more than $15 billion in damage, and could rival the worst East Coast storm on record. Officials did not mince words, telling people to be prepared for several days without electricity. Jersey Shore beach towns began issuing voluntary evacuations and protecting boardwalks. Atlantic Beach casinos made contingency plans to close, and officials advised residents of flood-prone areas to stay with family or be ready to leave. Airlines said to expect cancellations and waived change fees for passengers who want to reschedule. “Be forewarned,” said Connecticut Gov. Dannel P. Malloy. “Assume that you will be in the midst of flooding conditions, the likes of which you may not have seen at any of the major storms that have occurred over the last 30 years.” Many storm-seasoned residents had not begun to panic. Along North Carolina’s fragile Outer Banks, no evacuations had been ordered and ferries hadn’t yet been closed. Plenty of stores remained open and houses still featured Halloween decorations outside, as rain started to roll in.

Romney: Obama made the economy worse By David Espo and Steve Peoples Associated Press

AMES, IOWA — Seizing on fresh evidence of economic sluggishness, Republican challenger Mitt Romney said Friday that President Barack Obama inherited a bad situation when he took office and then “made the problem worse.” Obama looked ahead to the second term he’s hoping to win. Referring to the two top Republicans in Congress, the president said he was prepared to “wash John Boehner’s car” or “walk Mitch Obama McConnell’s dog” if it would help complete an elusive deal to cut future deficits by trillions of dollars. Romney The two campaign rivals faced a common danger as the end of their race came into view: a large and dangerous storm threatening to barrel up the East Coast. Romney and Vice President Joe Biden each canceled planned weekend appearances in Virginia Beach, Va. Romney was unsparing in his criticism of the man he hopes to unseat. “Despite all that he inherited, President Obama did not repair our economy, he did not save Medicare and Social Security, he did not tame the spending and borrowing, he did not reach across the aisle to bring us together,” the former Massachusetts governor said. “Four years ago, America voted for a post-partisan president, but they have seen the most political of presidents, and a Washington in gridlock because of it,” he added. The Republican challenger borrowed a theme from Obama’s successful 2008 campaign, saying he and running mate Paul Ryan “can bring real change to this country.” And he tweaked a line

that former President Bill Clinton unveiled at this summer’s Democratic National Convention, saying, “This is not the time to double-down on trickledown government policies that have failed us.” Democrats delighted in pointing out that Romney spoke outside Kinzler Construction Services, which benefitted from more than $650,000 in stimulus funding from the 2009 package Obama that signed into law — and the Republican nominee often criticizes. Romney campaigned in Iowa and Ohio as national polls showed a tight race. Though his aides claimed momentum, citing recent polls, Obama’s team said the president led or was tied in each of the nine battleground states where the two sides have concentrated hundreds of millions of dollars in television commercials over the past five months. Back in the White House after his long day and night and day of campaigning, Obama said he looked forward to trying to reach a deal with congressional Republicans on a sweeping budget deal if he wins re-election. Asked by radio show host Michael Smerconish if he would make the first move, the president replied, “I’ve said I’ll do whatever’s required to get this done. “And I think the key that the American people want right now is for us to tackle some big challenges that we face in a commonsense, balanced, sensible way.” That was a reference to one of his biggest differences with Romney — his insistence that tax cuts be allowed to expire at upper incomes on Dec. 31, as opposed to Romney’s insistence that they be extended. Obama has been under pressure from Romney in recent days to be more specific about a second-term agenda, and he released a 20-page pamphlet earlier this week. He also had interviews with MTV and several battleground-state television stations on his schedule for the day. Later, in a live interview with MTV, he urged younger voters to cast their ballots, saying, “there’s no excuse” not to.

Romney’s calm approach wins debate WASHINGTON — OK, OK. I’ll give you the context. Obama was talking about “when Tunisians began to protest, this nation, me, my administration, stood with them.” Still. How many democratic leaders (de Gaulle excluded) would place the word “me” in such regal proximity to the word “nation”? Obama would have made a very good Bourbon. He’s certainly not a very good debater. He showed it again Monday night. Obama lost. His tone was petty and small. Arguing about Iran’s nuclear program, he actually said to Mitt Romney, “While we were coordinating an international coalition to make sure these sanctions were effective, you were still invested in a Chinese state oil company that was doing business with the Iranian oil sector.” You can’t get smaller than that. You’d expect this in a city council race. But only from the challenger. The sitting councilman would find such an ad hominem beneath him. That spirit led Obama into a major unforced error. When Romney made a perfectly reasonable case to rebuild a shrinking Navy, Obama condescended: “You mentioned ... that we have fewer ships than we did in 1916. Well, Governor, we also have fewer horses and bayonets, because the nature of our military’s changed.” Such that naval vessels are as obsolete as horse cavalry? Liberal pundits got a great guffaw out of this, but the un-

Charles Krauthammer

Romney’s entire strategy in both the second and third debates was to reinforce the status he achieved in debate No. 1 as a plausible alternative president.” derlying argument is quite stupid. As if the ships being retired are dinghies, skipjacks and three-masted schooners. As if an entire branch of the armed forces — the principal projector of American power abroad — is itself some kind of anachronism. “We have these things called aircraft carriers,” continued the schoolmaster, “where planes land on them.” This is Obama’s case for fewer vessels? Does he think carriers patrol alone? He doesn’t know that for every one carrier, 10 times as many ships sail in a phalanx of escorts? Obama may blithely dismiss the need for more ships, but the Navy wants at least 310 and the

latest Quadrennial Defense Review Independent Panel report says that defending America’s vital interests requires 346 ships (versus 287 today). Does anyone doubt that if we continue, as we are headed, down to fewer than 230, the casualty will be entire carrier battle groups, precisely the kind of high-tech force multipliers that Obama pretends our national security requires? Romney, for his part, showed himself to be fluent enough in foreign policy, although I could have done with a little less Mali (two references) and a lot less “tumult” (five). But he did have the moment of the night when he took after Obama’s post-inauguration world apology tour. Obama, falling back on his base, flailingly countered that “every fact checker and every reporter” says otherwise. Oh yeah? What about Obama declaring that America had “dictated” to other nations? “Mr. President,” said Romney, “America has not dictated to other nations. We have freed other nations from dictators.” Obama, rattled, went off into a fog beginning with “if we’re going to talk about trips that we’ve taken,” followed by a rambling travelogue of a 2008 visit to Israel. As if this is about trip-taking, rather than about defending — versus denigrating — the honor of the United States while on foreign soil. Americans may care little about Syria and nothing about Mali. But they don’t

From the Lawrence Daily Journal-World for Oct. 27, 1912: “The motion picture camera never filmed a more exciting chase than that which took place YEARS on Saturday night on South Massachusetts AGO street, and yet no motion picture machine IN 1912 was on hand to take advantage of the natural setting. A man and woman in a buggy and a taxicab full of policemen played the principal roles in this bit of natural dramatics. To add color to the scene occasional shots were fired by the officers, people rushed to their doors in their nightcaps, dogs barked and other unseemly midnight noises prevailed. But on and on dashed the horse, every shot called forth another blow while the taxi driver kept letting out more gasoline. The chase finally ended somewhere near the south limits where the taxi at last overtook the fleeing couple and the entire company moved slowly back to the police station. This morning Leslie Chamming pleaded guilty to a charge of being drunk and driving fast. The court assessed a fine totaling $16.50 which the defendant paid and thus closed one of the most exciting events that has occurred in police circles for some time.”

The only question is whether it was intentional, i.e. deliberate deceit, or unintentional, i.e. scandalous incompetence.) Romney, however, calculated differently: Act presidential. Better use the night to assume a reassuring, non-contentious demeanor. Romney’s entire strategy in both the second and third debates was to reinforce the status he achieved in debate No. 1 as a plausible alternative president. He therefore went bipartisan, accommodating, above the fray and, above all, nonthreatening. That’s what Reagan did with Carter in their 1980 debate. If your opponent’s record is dismal and the country quite prepared to toss him out — but not unless you pass the threshold test — what do you do? Romney chose to do a Reagan: Don’t quarrel. Speak softly. Meet the threshold. We’ll soon know whether steady-as-she-goes was the right choice.

A masterpiece? To the editor: It arrived! My city-mandated piece of yard art was delivered yesterday. Now I must decide how to properly display such a masterpiece. Do I travel to the local nursery and spend close to $100 for shrubbery, take the shrubs home and instruct my significant other on how to properly plant then? Or do I travel to the big box store on 31st Street, buy some 4-by-4 posts, the necessary concrete and a panel or two of white plastic lattice (possibly made in China) and return home to instruct my significant other on how to properly dig postholes and pour concrete! Or, my third option might be to set this work of art in full view at the head of my drive so all the passersby might be able to enjoy such magnificence!

What the Lawrence Journal-World stands for

There is an alternative. Consider a vote for a third party down the ballot. I like Obama, voted for him, but don’t feel he has earned my vote, particularly in Kansas. As for Romney, we’ve been there, done that and know that dog won’t hunt. I will vote for the Green Party candidate. Unfortunately, I will have to write her name on the ballot, easily done. The Green Party is on 85 percent of the ballots nationally, and a 5 percent vote would qualify them for more than $20 million in matching federal funds in 2016. Is my vote wasted? Maybe, but maybe it is an investment in the future with more diversity in our democracy. Also on the ballot are the Reform and Libertarian Party candidates. Maybe Douglas County could kick-start the nation by a strong vote for alternative candidates who represent alternative solutions. Check them out before you check the ballot. Ace Hickey, Lawrence

FREE STATE’S JOE DINEEN (12) CELEBRATES HIS TOUCHDOWN with teammates. FSHS beat Lawrence, 28-14, in the City Showdown on Friday at LHS.

FSHS claims district crown By Benton Smith

Free State High senior quarterback Kyle McFarland knew how valuable teammate Cody Stanclift could be with his hands and footwork as a blocker at right tackle. After Friday night’s regular-season finale at Lawrence High, McFarland had an even higher level of respect for those attributes because of how Stanclift used them as a defensive end. Stanclift, a 6-foot-2, 250-pound senior lineman, intercepted LHS quarterback Brad Strauss’ pass at the seven-yard line after FSHS junior linebacker Keith Loneker knocked the throw off course. Stanclift took the

‘D’ difference for Free State

pick and scored the decisive touchdown with 5:52 left in the fourth quarter of the City Showdown, setting the stage for a 28-14 FSHS victory, which clinched the District 1 championship for the Firebirds. Lions senior defensive back Drake Hofer had just picked off a McFarland pass in the end zone to give LHS the ball in a one-possession game. On the first play of a potential game-altering drive for Lawrence, Loneker came off the edge knowing Strauss would throw the ball quickly, as he had been all night. The linebacker swatted the throw high into the air, and Stanclift tracked it

The Lawrence High football defense opened the City Showdown playing like a team that was sick and tired of reading all about the dominance of its cross-town rival’s defense. But after four quarters had been played and the final scoreboard read Free State 28, Lawrence 14, there was no conclusion anyone could draw other than to say the winning team’s defense was the difference. Both teams have deep senior classes, but it was the defensive efforts of four Free State juniors that played such a huge role in a victory that included a touchdown reception from junior tight end Zach Bickling.

It’s called “get-off.” It pertains to a defensive lineman’s ability to get off the line of scrimmage quickly, and it’s a quality an athlete either has or doesn’t. Defensive end Fred Wyatt, who doubles as the team’s left tackle, has it. He consistently used it to gain an advantage on his blocker Please see KEEGAN, page 3B

Jayhawks’ Young breaks bone, out two weeks By Gary Bedore

Kansas University senior basketball forward Kevin Young suffered a broken bone in the middle of his right hand at practice Thursday and is slated to miss about two weeks, coach Bill Self said Friday.

Young, who injured the hand running into a screen, is expected to miss two exhibitions and one regularseason game, Self said. “He got it caught on a jersey, on a chest, during a defensive drill,” Self said. Young had surgery Friday, Self said, and should be back

shooting and in non-contact drills in 10 days. Young showed for practice Friday with a huge wrap on his right hand. He offered encouragement to his teammates while watching the action. “I think it’s a setback for Kevin and for us,” Self said. “He’s worked so hard and

has been playing so well. It’ll give somebody else an opportunity to get some reps now and hopefully better prepare themselves (players who get his reps). “I know Kevin will not lose any conditioning. The fact he can be shooting in a week to 10 days will cause

him, hopefully, to not get too far behind.” KU red-shirt freshman forward Jamari Traylor said Young, “was going for a loose ball. He hit it and was, ‘Ah, ah, ah.’ He said he knew something was broken right Please see HOOPS, page 7B Young

Tigers count on change of scenery DETROIT (AP) — Toting his tiny aluminum bat, 5-year-old Gage Brookens wandered toward the cage and watched Austin Jackson, Omar Infante and a few other Tigers take batting practice on a chilly afternoon at Comerica Park. Maybe that’s what these slumping Detroit hitters need in this World Series. Metal bats, rather than their weak wood. “Oh, I don’t know if they’d allow that,” kidded Gage’s grandpop, Tigers first base coach Tom Brookens. “But the hitters definitely wouldn’t mind.” Something better change for Triple Crown winner Miguel Cabrera, Prince Fielder and the Tigers real soon or their year is going to end real shortly. They totaled only three runs and 10 hits in San Francisco while falling into a 2-0 deficit against the Giants. Game 3 is tonight, with Anibal Sanchez starting for Detroit against Ryan Vogelsong. The Tigers are hoping that a switch in scenery — the ivy hanging on the center-field backdrop at Comerica has turned to autumn colors since the AL championship series — and a flip in pitchers might help. Throttled by left-handed starters Barry Zito and Madison Bumgarner at AT&T Park, the Tigers are eager to see a righthander. Any right-hander, in fact: Detroit batted .275 against righties, .253 vs. lefties. “Sometimes you can’t explain it,” Tigers catcher Alex Avila said before a workout Friday. “In our case, we’ve had trouble all year with left-handed pitching, which is strange because we have a lot of good hitters on the team.”

DETROIT PLAYERS PREPARE TO WORK OUT Friday at Comerica Park in Detroit. The Tigers will play host to San Francisco tonight in Game 3 of the World Series. “It’ll be a nice change, obviously, to face a right-hander because we’ve had more success.” The Tigers will see Vogelsong, followed by fellow righthander Matt Cain in Game 4. “We’ve gone through spurts this whole season where we’ve thrown the ball like this as a staff,” Vogelsong said. “We obviously had our downtime there in the middle of September and at the end of August.” “And we’re just all kind of hitting our stride here at the same time. It’s up to me and Matt now to keep it going over here in Detroit.” Tigers manager Jim Leyland plans to insert speedy rookie Quintin Berry and Andy Dirks in his outfield. “The ball just hasn’t rolled our way yet,” Berry said. “They got a hit off the third-base bag.

They had a bunt that wouldn’t go foul. They made great catches in left field.” No mistaking that the Series has shifted from California to Michigan. In San Francisco, it was downright balmy in the 60s, and made for a pair of picture-perfect settings to play ball. At Comerica, it was in the mid-40s and the lights were turned on while the Tigers worked out. The forecast was for Game 3 was for temperatures to drop into the upper 30s in the later innings. “We have got heaters in the dugout for both teams, obviously. Ours is going to be a little warmer than theirs, I think, tomorrow night,” Leyland said. “But that’s all right. We’re not going to tell them that. I’m just kidding.”

“You know what? It’s cold, but I mean this is the World Series. It’s cold for everybody. It’s cold for the fans, the beer is cold, everything is cold. It’s great. Enjoy it.” While the Tigers have lost five straight World Series games dating to 2006 against St. Louis, they’ve also won five postseason home games in a row. Detroit began that string last year in the ALCS, took two against Oakland this year in the division series and then finished off an ALCS sweep of the Yankees. Overall, the Tigers have taken eight straight at home. “I think a lot of teams, your really good teams, they dominate at home. That’s what they do — the Cardinals, the Reds, they were really tough at home,” Giants manager Bruce Bochy said. “We ended up having a pretty good home record, despite having some struggles there in September or late August. But it’s a team that feeds on probably their home crowd, and they’re more comfortable at home, and that’s usually the case in baseball. But this certainly is a club that we know is playing very well here.”


Indiana No. 1, Kansas No. 7 in AP preseason basketball poll Tom Crean didn’t look like any of the other people in the Maui airport that day. He had just coached his third, fourth and fifth games in his first season at Indiana. He looked how you would expect a coach to look after losing games by 38 and 26 points, then managing to beat Division II Chaminade in the seventh-place game of the Maui Invitational by only two points. The Silverswords got off a possible gamewinning three-point attempt at the buzzer. Others waiting for flights to the mainland on the day before Thanksgiving in 2008 were wearing leis and flowered shirts and were carefully carrying pineapples. Not Crean. He had a lot of things on his mind and looked like he was ready to blow the whistle and start practice. “This is going to take awhile,” Crean said at the time. “We can do it. This place has so much in so many ways.” He was standing and pacing now, the way he piles up the miles on the sideline. “We can do this,” he said. “We can do this.” Not many people would have believed it then. They do now. Another step in the return of the fabled Hoosiers program came Friday as Crean is about to start his fifth season in Bloomington. Indiana was ranked No. 1 in The Associated Press’ preseason Top 25, a first for the Hoosiers since 1979-80, when they were coached by Bob Knight and the three-point line was still in the experimental phase. The Hoosiers and their fans are quite familiar with the next two teams in the voting: Louisville and Kentucky. Kansas is ranked No. 7. Duke has the longest current streak of consecutive poll appearances at 97, a run that started with the preseason poll of 2007-08. Kansas has the second-longest current run at 65 weeks. The Hoosiers, who return all five starters including 7-foot sophomore Cody Zeller, received 43 first-place votes from the 65-member national media panel. Indiana is a preseason No. 1 for the third time. Ohio State and Michigan joined Indiana

Lions’ take: Loss not end of season By Jesse Newell

Lawrence High football coach Dirk Wedd’s postgame speech to his players wasn’t filled with anger or frustration following the Lions’ 28-14 home loss to Free State on Friday night. “I told them I loved them, and that I was very proud of them,” Wedd said. “The character they showed tonight, the heart they showed tonight ... I’ve got a whole bunch of successful citizens in there, because they understand what it is to roll up their sleeves and go to work.” The defeat still stung, as


down before the batted pass could hit the turf. “That changed the whole game,” McFarland said, “because they had momentum. They could’ve drove it down and scored.” Because LHS (7-2 overall, 2-1 district) always goes for two after a touchdown, a Lions TD drive could have meant a Free State deficit late. Loneker helped prevent that with his backfield pressure and quick hands. “I was just looking for a broken play,” Loneker said, “but Cody had it right there, and once he got that interception, I was jacked. It was crazy.” In a game full of momentum swings, Free State coach Bob Lisher said Stanclift’s pick-six had to be the biggest turning point. “We tipped a lot of balls and were close, but that was just an opportunity right there,” Lisher said. “To take it in and get a two-touchdown lead was huge, absolutely huge at that point.” Relentless as usual, Lawrence’s offense did its best to cut into Free State’s 14-point advantage on the next possession. The Lions picked up four first downs, courtesy of a Tyrone Jenkins run and passes from Strauss to Will Thompson and Erick Mayo. But after getting first-and-goal at the six, a pair of penalties backed LHS up to the 16, and great efforts from Hofer and Mayo on would-be touchdown grabs went as incompletions to end the drive with 2:44 to play. Strauss completed 18 of his 35 passes for 192 yards and two touchdowns, but his 35 rushing yards on 17 carries were the direct result of the Free State defense hitting and taking down the dual-threat QB in the backfield. Junior FSHS defensive end Fred Wyatt, junior linebacker Blake Winslow, Loneker and senior lineman Riley Buller all played a part in tackling

evidenced by the red eyes of both quarterback Brad Strauss and receiver Will Thompson as they left the locker room. “Our goal is always to defeat Free State at the end of the year, but right now, we’ve got to worry about bigger and better things,” Thompson said, “and that’s the playoffs and hopefully make a run at state.” Lawrence’s biggest struggle Friday night was keeping Free State defenders out of the backfield. Strauss was sacked or brought down for a loss eight times. In addition, the Lions mustered just

44 rushing yards on 24 attempts. It also was a quiet night from senior running back Tyrone Jenkins, who finished with seven carries for nine yards. “We couldn’t knock them off the ball to get any running game,” Wedd said. “I would’ve loved to get Tyrone 20 carries, but we couldn’t get him back to the line of scrimmage sometimes.” That kind of penetration forced LHS mostly to abandon the run. For a majority of the second half, Wedd elected to empty the backfield, deploying five receivers in

hopes his skill position players could get open in the passing game. Many times, Free State responded by bringing additional pressure, playing man defense on each of the receivers while sending an extra pass-rusher at Strauss. “They did a really good job controlling the gaps up front,” Strauss said. “Our offensive line, they blocked hard, but they just brought so many guys ... it’s tough.” The biggest defensive play for Free State came midway through the fourth quarter, with the Firebirds leading, 21-14.

On a first down from the LHS 20, Strauss’ pass was tipped in the air by Keith Loneker, then intercepted by Cody Stanclift, who returned it for a touchdown. The play was a quick out pattern, and Strauss said he saw a receiver was open. “I just didn’t even see the (linebacker),” Strauss said. “He got his hands up. He made a great play.” Strauss finished 18-for35 for 192 yards passing with two touchdowns and the one interception. He was held to 35 rushing yards on 17 carries. “We’re just disap-


pointed. That was a big game,” Strauss said. “It’s not all bad, though, because we’ve got at least one more week — in the playoffs. “They didn’t take away any of our goals for this season. Our goal coming into the season was to win a state championship, and that loss didn’t do anything to hurt us.” LHS (7-2) will open the playoffs next week with a road game Friday against Gardner-Edgerton. “I can’t wait to coach them (Saturday) morning,” Wedd said. “We’re going to roll up our sleeves and get back to work.”

KU soccer wins finale


The city’s top cross country runners will race against the best the rest of the state has to offer today. The Class 6A state championships will be decided at Rim Rock Farm, and Free State High is the only city program in the mix for a team title. The FSHS boys took third place last week at the Blue Valley West regional to qualify for state. Ryan Liston (eighth at regional) and Trail Spears (ninth at regional) led the Firebirds last weekend and will be joined in the state championship race at 11 a.m. by team-

mates Fletcher Koch, John Corbett, Cole Stallard, Thomas Becker and Ethan Donley. Lawrence High’s Gavin Fischer was the only Lion to qualify for state. The 6A girls race begins at 12:30 p.m. Only three city runners have a shot at state medals. Lawrence’s Grace Morgan won a regional championship last week, and teammate Claire Sanner placed sixth at the BVW regional. Free State’s Bailey Sullivan (ninth at regional) is the only Firebird competing. Meanwhile, in Wamego, the Bishop Seabury Academy girls — 2011 Class 1A state champions — will

try to win the 2A championship after the school’s classification changed this fall. Regional runner-up Kate Albrecht, Maddie McCaffrey (10th at regional), Heidi Dumesich, Phoebe Grabill, Addie Graham, Eilish Gibson and Alison Chi helped the Seahawks finish second at the 2A regional in Burlington last weekend. Their race for the school’s first 2A state title begins at 11:30 a.m. at Wamego Country Club. The Seabury boys’ Brandon McCaffrey finished second at regionals and is the only Seahawk running in the 2A boys race, which begins at 10 a.m.

When Kansas has the ball Kansas rush offense vs. Texas rush defense Not only do the Jayhawks feature the second-leading rusher in the Big 12 in junior James Sims, but they’ll be facing a team that, statistically speaking, owns the worst rushing defense in the conference. It won’t be easy — it never is — but there’s no doubt that the Jayhawks deserve the edge in this one, not only because of Sims, but also because of Tony Pierson, Taylor Cox and the fact that this team has run the ball well against everyone it has played this season. That includes Oklahoma, Kansas State, TCU and Oklahoma State. In recent losses, UT surrendered 343 yards rushing to OU and 192 yards rushing to West Virginia. For the season, the Longhorns are giving up an average of 216 yards per game on the ground. Edge: Kansas. Kansas pass offense vs. Texas pass defense KU coach Charlie Weis said earlier this week that he planned to open up the offense a little more for new starting quarterback Michael Cummings. That should help KU’s offense be more balanced and bring back some of that big-play potential. However, until we see Cummings successfully throw the football for an extended period, it’s hard to say that the advantage lies with the Jayhawks. Not only is Cummings an inexperienced QB, but the UT secondary features two or three future pros. That, along with the fact that Texas ranks second in the Big 12 in sacks (17) and loves to blitz, is enough to give the visitors the nod in this category. Edge: Texas.

When Texas has the ball

KANSAS UNIVERSITY’S JACOREY SHEPHERD WARMS UP FOR PRACTICE in this file photo from Oct. 23 at Memorial Stadium. A former wide receiver, Shepherd has taken to his new role as defensive back.

Shepherd relishes role as DB By Matt Tait

Through the first seven games of Kansas University’s football season, one of JaCorey Shepherd’s biggest plays was one he didn’t make. With the Jayhawks trailing 10th-ranked Oklahoma 3-0 in the first quarter of last week’s loss, Shepherd found himself matched up one-on-one with OU standout receiver Kenny Stills. As Stills ran a deep route to the end zone, Shepherd lost contact briefly but then closed the gap and wound up running step-for-step with Stills as the ball hung in the air and eventually landed in Stills’ hands for the first of seven OU touchdowns. “It actually went down my hand and into his arm,” Shepherd said. “If I would’ve played the ball more … I feel like I played the man too much. Right after the play, though, that was the thing, I wasn’t down on myself, I was like, ‘Man, I was right there, stride for stride.’” Shepherd was not the only one impressed by his coverage on one of the Big 12’s best receivers. KU coach Charlie Weis, defensive coordinator Dave Campo and safeties coach Clint Bowen all said Shepherd showed both his raw ability and his inexperience on that play. The latter is something they can work on. The former is something they’re glad to have. “He has the ability where I think we could eventually see him being pretty solid,” Weis said of the sophomore cornerback. “Just the fact that he was right there with a 44-yard throw that was right on the money, it’s good he was there. Now you gotta finish it off.” This whole season — which continues at 11 a.m. to-

day when the Jayhawks (1-6 overall, 0-4 Big 12) play host to Texas (5-2, 2-2) at Memorial Stadium — has been a wild ride for Shepherd, last year’s team leader in both touchdown receptions (3) and average gain per reception (16.8). In the offseason, the 5-foot-11, 185-pound wideout from Mesquite, Texas, dropped far enough down the depth chart that Weis and Campo decided to try him out on defense, where the Jayhawks lacked speed and depth. At first, Shepherd was unsure about the idea. But the way Weis presented it to him and, more importantly, the chance to play, changed his mind, and KU’s latest offense-to-defense experiment was under way. Early in the season, Shepherd’s progress showed up mostly in practice, and the coaches seemed hesitant to put him on the field because no one knew if his raw talent would translate to Saturdays. Now? “He’s like a starter,” Weis said. “He’s basically playing the third corner, so when we go nickel, he’s a starter right now. When he goes in there, (junior Tyler) Patmon’s been moving inside, and (Shepherd’s) out there.” Shepherd has received all kinds of advice from all kinds of places during his whirlwind two-month transition from the guy catching the passes to the guy breaking them up. His father impressed upon him the importance of having a short-term memory, and his teammates in the secondary, the guys he used to talk trash with, have helped him adjust. But it turns out one of Shepherd’s best tools in this transformation was his past. The years he spent honing his skills

as a wide receiver have helped tremendously in his attempt to play defensive back. “At receiver, I always watched a lot of film on other DBs,” Shepherd said. “I was always taught the best way to beat a DB was to watch and learn what they do. Now it’s the same thing but different. I’m actually playing DB.” There are times when all of that knowledge can cause problems, most often when Shepherd’s mind and what he sees pre-snap tempt him to believe the opposing receiver is going to run this route or that one. “When I played receiver, I was taught to run each route at least two or three different ways,” Shepherd said. “So it helps me, but I try not to be too aggressive or guess too often.” Shepherd’s natural athleticism has led to early success, and he has improved his technique every step of the way. He just recently got comfortable “opening up and running” and said he now has a better grasp of when it’s time to get out of his backpedal. “He’s done a nice job of developing as a DB,” Bowen said. “There’s a lot to it. And he’s done well.” So well that Shepherd said he actually could see himself sticking with defense for the rest of his career. “In the beginning, I was like, ‘Man, if they give me an opportunity to go back, I’m going,’” Shepherd recalled. “But as I went on, coaches were telling me, ‘You could be real good.’ I was hearing them, but as the weeks went on, I started agreeing (with) them. I see I’ve got the potential. I’m not trying to be selfish. If they need me to play here, I’m gonna play here. I’m starting to let that receiver slowly go away.”

Texas rush offense vs. Kansas rush defense UT may not be able to stop the run, but it sure can do its share of damage on the ground. Led by a stable of talented running backs that features three guys who have topped 245 yards rushing so far this season, Texas has emerged as a team that loves to pound the football. Sophomore Joe Bergeron has done most of the heavy lifting for the UT rushing attack, leading the team in yards (418), carries (92) and touchdowns (14). Johnathan Gray (31663-1) and Malcolm Brown (245-40-3) have also proven to be solid, and with quarterback David Ash doing enough through the air to keep opposing defenses honest, this UT ground game has become difficult to stop. Edge: Texas. Texas pass offense vs. Kansas pass defense Texas ranks just seventh in the Big 12 in pass offense — eighth in total offense — and has had its share of trouble throwing the football this season. Sophomore QB Ash looked great early on and has carried that momentum throughout the season. Weis called Ash one of the more underrated quarterbacks in the country, partly because of his big frame and ability to throw the deep ball and partly because he has the horses to run underneath it. Texas’ receivers are as fast and athletic as any bunch in the Big 12, and Ash has spread the ball around: Six players have 12 or more receptions so far this season. The group is led by Mike Davis (500 yards and four TDs) and Jaxon Shipley (268-4). Edge: Texas.

Special teams Here’s the deal: Until KU shows drastic improvement in its special teams, the opponent is going to get the advantage in this category each week. This unit has struggled all season, but the Jayhawks are coming off arguably their worst special-teams game of the season. Not only did the Sooners return two kicks for scores, but new place kicker Nick Prolago missed a field goal, making the Jayhawks just 5-of-11 this season, with Prolago sitting at 0-for-1. KU’s coaches devoted extra time and resources to special teams this week in practice, so expect to see a few new faces in new places out there today. Still, Texas ranks in the top half of the Big 12 in three special-teams categories and features a few blazing fast return men. Edge: Texas. —Matt Tait

KANSAS QUARTERBACK MICHAEL CUMMINGS IS SWARMED by Oklahoma defenders Tony Jefferson (1), Corey Nelson (7), and Chuka Ndulue (98) during the first quarter a week ago today in Norman, Okla.


Cummings clear No. 1 By Matt Tait

Heading into preparations for last week’s Oklahoma game, Kansas University quarterback Michael Cummings knew he would play, had heard he might start but also knew that senior Dayne Crist also would play several snaps. This week, as Cummings and the Jayhawks (1-6 overall, 0-4 Big 12) prepared for today’s 11 a.m. meeting with Texas (5-2, 2-2), no such uncertainty clouded his mind. “Being named the starter definitely helps you prepare mentally,” Cummings said. “I’m just gonna prepare like I know how, take the coaching from the coaches and go into (the game) confident and ready.” KU quarterbacks coach Ron Powlus, a former college QB, agreed that Cummings’ clear-cut status as KU’s quarterback should help his young signal-caller this week. “I think knowing it and preparing that way helps you focus,” Powlus said. “It helps you stay dialed in. It helps you know where things are gonna go, but it’s still quite a challenge.” Although Cummings is excited about the opportunity — and he gives that away by smiling nearly every time he talks about it — Cummings said he realized playing quarterback was about more than just him. “It’s not my show,” he said. “It’s our show.

Hard to believe, but until Friday, college coaching legend Bobby Cremins had never stepped foot in Allen Fieldhouse. “It’s an honor to be here. I feel I’m on hallowed ground,” said the 65-year-old Cremins, who went 570-367 overall in 31 years at Georgia Tech, College of Charleston and Appalachian State. “I feel like I’m at Augusta playing the Masters. “The pictures on the walls are amazing. It’s like a shrine,” added Cremins, in town this weekend as featured speaker at Bill Self’s KU Coaches Clinic. “They’ve kept the history in place here. That’s what I love about it. They could modernize it and put fancy seats in it, but it would take away the meaningfulness of it.” Cremins, who retired after 11 games last season after falling ill during his sixth season at College of Charleston, said he considered scheduling KU at his last coaching stop. “We were already overloaded. We were playing North Carolina, Maryland, South Carolina, but it is an amazing place,” Cremins said of KU. “Walking around campus,

They’ve kept the history in place here. That’s what I love about it. They could modernize it and put fancy seats in it, but it would take away the meaningfulness of it.” — Former college coach Bobby Cremins, on Allen Fieldhouse it kind of reminds me of Duke.” Cremins, who played his college ball at the University of South Carolina, spoke to several hundred coaches Friday about offensive schemes and general issues such as how to get a job at the collegiate level. “I can’t thank Bill and Joe Dooley enough for contacting me and inviting me,” Cremins said. “It’s a thrill to be here.” A longtime friend of KU assistant Dooley, Cremins until this weekend hasn’t had a chance to really get to know 10th-year KU head coach Self. “I related the story today. I was at a Final Four in Indianapolis, and they (Jayhawks) had gotten upset in the first round,” Cremins said. “I came out of my hotel room, and one of first people I ran

into in the street was Bill Self. It told me so much about him. A lot of times you have a bad first-round loss, and you don’t want to leave your hotel room. You don’t want to get out. He was out and about. He had the best attitude. “I admired that. It’s showed me the type of person he is, how balanced he was. I remember I had some tough first-round losses, and I didn’t want to go to the Final Four. I did go, but I’d hide out a bit. He was not hiding out.” Cremins is planning a big reunion weekend for former Georgia Tech players this season as the Yellow Jackets reveal their newly renovated arena. He also is an ambassador for the Charleston hoops program. The court at Georgia Tech is named after Cremins, who went 354-237 in 19 years at the ACC school, which is located in Atlanta. “I do miss aspects of it. A lot of things I don’t miss,” Cremins said of coaching. “I love college basketball. I love the game. I hope to stay involved in it (perhaps in TV). My biggest thrill is I played in the ACC at South Carolina. Winning our first ACC championship was a real big thrill, being able to say I was part of that.”

FROM LEFT, KANSAS MEN’S BASKETBALL COACH BILL SELF, former KU track star Egor Agafonov and soccer player Holly Gault visit after they participated in a Hall of Fame induction ceremony on Friday. Self’s 2006-2007 basketball team, Agafonov, a national champion in the weight throw in 2007 and 2008, and Gault, a two-time All-American, were honored as inductees into the KU Athletics Hall of Fame.



away. Kevin’s a guy who works so hard. To get an injury is terrible for him. But he’s going to get better. He will heal up and come back 100 percent.” Of the big-man group, Traylor said: “We’re still going to maintain, but this is definitely a loss to the team for now. I’m confident he’s going to get back and do great things.” KU will meet Emporia State at 7 p.m. Tuesday in Allen Fieldhouse. The Jayhawks play Washburn on Nov. 5 and open the regular season vs. SE Missouri State on Nov. 9. O

Hall of Fame: KU’s 2006-07 basketball team was inducted into the Kansas Athletics Hall of Fame in a ceremony Friday morning in the Booth Family Hall of Athletics. Also inducted: track and field thrower Egor Agafonov and soccer player Holly Gault. “That’s probably the most talented team we’ve had here, maybe by far,” Self said of the Big 12 regular-season and postseason championship team which advanced to the Elite Eight. “Think about it. We had Russell (Robinson) at the 1, Mario (Chalmers) at the 2, Brandon (Rush) at the 3, Julian (Wright) at the 4, Sasha (Kaun) at the 5. We brought ‘Shady’ (Darrell Arthur), Darnell (Jackson) and Sherron (Collins) off the bench. How many teams can

That’s probably the most talented team we’ve had here, maybe by far. … How many teams can bring three NBA guys off the bench? That was a fun team to coach.” — KU basketball coach Bill Self, on the 2006-07 team that was inducted into the KU Athletics Hall of Fame on Friday bring three NBA guys off the bench? That was a fun team to coach.” Brennan Bechard, Matt Kleinmann, Brady Morningstar and Brad Witherspoon represented the team Friday, as well as Self and assistant coach Joe Dooley. Bechard is KU’s assistant director of basketball operations; Kleinmann is an architect in Kansas City; Morningstar is a member of Tulsa’s NBADL team; and Witherspoon serves as an assistant coach at John Wood Community College in Quincy, Ill. Agafonov, who works in management for a large construction company in Moscow, won indoor national championships in the weight throw in 2007 and 2008. “When I got here yesterday, I felt like I was at home,” said Agafonov, who attained a degree in economics from KU despite the fact he knew no English upon arriving here. “I came to KU to learn something new, to see the world and to meet

new people. It happened that I became a good athlete and good student. This is home for me.” Gault, a fourth-year KU Med student from Spring Hill, was a two-time AllAmerica defender for the Jayhawks from 2003-06. “I’ve always been a Jayhawk. I was born and raised in Kansas,” Gault said. “It’s such an honor to know that my picture will be in the Hall of Fame at KU with all the amazing athletes that came before me and all the amazing athletes that will come after me. It’s a dream come true.” Approximately 100 former KU swimmers and divers returned to honor former KU swim coach Dick Reamon. Two granite pavers dedicated to Reamon were revealed in front of the fieldhouse. Reamon was a KU student-athlete and coached men’s swimming and diving at KU from 1963-77. Under Reamon, KU won eight straight Big Eight Conference men’s swimming and diving championships from 1968-75. “I can’t say there are too many people who have their name in stone and are still standing up and can talk about it,” Reamon joked. “This is an amazing place. The university has been with me forever. I never left Lawrence so KU has been there through thick and thin forever. To get a chance to have this many people care enough to come back to Lawrence and for us all to get together, (this) is a very, very special moment.”

Is religion a crutch?



sional care providers, and if we are truly blessed, both a faith and a community of faith that Baldwin can support us in our time of need. And really, why shouldn’t we rely on our faith? Regardless of our religion, we are appealing to what we believe and understand to be the greatest advocate out there. In the case of Christianity, it would be the Creator of the Universe, the Lord of Heaven, and the Savior of humanity. That’s someone who can do a lot for us in times of need, and we shouldn’t turn that down out of misplaced pride or fear of seeming weak or a failure. — Send email to Rob Baldwin at

Send your questions about faith and spiritual issues for our religion columnists to

We aren’t meant to navigate alone Deacon Godsey, pastor of vision implementation at Vintage Church, Liberty Memorial Central Middle School, 1400 Mass.: This question, which people of faith hear quite often, seems to assume that (a) in life, a crutch is disdainful, and (b) religion is simply a series of made-up fables designed to help the weak face the hard realities of human existence (while, presumably, the truly “strong” or “informed” have enough fortitude or intelligence to free themselves from needing such a “crutch”). That being said, assuming a crutch — of whatever kind — signifies deplorable weakness is itself a bad assumption. Often it signifies little more than good common sense and humility, where the refusal to use one might reflect stubbornness or pride. The truth is, life is hard, often unimaginably so, and in the midst of pain and suffering, we all have “crutches” to lean on, religious or otherwise. Indeed, some crutches — and how we use them — can reflect weakness of character, maturity or intellect. Addictions of one form or another come to mind, many of which

develop as coping skills to help face trauma or tragedy. True, religion can be a simiGodsey lar form of weakness, when endlessly relied upon out of fear, denial or the perceived need to “perform.” The crutch of religion (or faith) is not, however, in and of itself, a sign of weakness to be avoided. For me, as a follower of Jesus, my faith is indeed a crutch of sorts. Our Scriptures say God’s people are “the Body of Christ,” how he is physically present to extend love, grace, comfort and compassion. So yes, I lean on Jesus and his people for that which I lack. This doesn’t, in my view, represent disdainful weakness, but a humble recognition that I wasn’t meant to navigate this life alone or in my own strength. Sometimes I need help — from God and God’s people. Acknowledging that reality isn’t weakness, it’s wisdom.

WEDDINGS Robertson-Gudde Wedding

‘Only when it is doing something right’ The Rev. Rob Baldwin, pastor, Trinity Episcopal Church, 1011 Vt.: “Is religion a crutch?” I imagine this question gets asked with a somewhat critical tone, suggesting that religion might inspire weakness or, in the case of Sydelle Pulaski, the attention-starved, crutch-waving character from “The Westing Game,” deceit. But thinking about real crutches for a second, my experience with people and crutches is that people tend to rush getting rid of them, not carrying them around too long. And by doing so they risk a longer healing, if not worse. My answer for “is religion a crutch,” is “only when it is doing something right.” Life is difficult, and struggles are universal, and in many of those instances we simply cannot stand on our own. We need the help of family and friends, sometimes of profes-

Dear Annie: My cousin and her husband have four young kids. My family is invited to every birthday and Christmas party. Of course, they expect a gift each time. Their kids are already spoiled with bedrooms overcrowded with stuff. They also post pictures on Facebook of trips to local museums and restaurants, so money doesn’t appear to be a problem. The problem is, my cousin’s family is otherwise so busy that these parties are the only days my kids can be in their lives. They rarely call or visit. They’ll come over if we invite them to a barbecue or something, but they don’t reciprocate. I don’t want to end the relationship, but it feels one-sided. My cousin’s father was like a father to me. After he died, I wanted to stay involved in her children’s lives. I have tried to keep this relationship going, but every

year it gets harder. Any advice? — Tennessee Dear Tennessee: It’s sweet that you want to stay close to your cousin and her family, but please don’t expect them to respond as if you are best friends. Socializing with relatives can be a bit more limited without creating ill will. Continue to attend the kids’ birthday parties, but don’t feel obligated to spend a fortune on a gift. Instead, offer to take the birthday child for a special outing so you can get to know each of them individually. In-

‘Zombies’ cast includes big names Scientists and other Bay Area survivors of a sudden plague seek refuge on Alcatraz Island in the 2012 shocker “Rise of the Zombies” (8 p.m. Saturday, Syfy). While this grade Z imitation doesn’t pretend to the production values of “The Walking Dead,” it does borrow the notion of a prison as a place of safety. On the bad side, these zombies seem smart, or motivated, enough to swim and float to the island hideaway. On a positive note, there seems to be a mad scientist working on a zombie “cure.” ‘‘Rise” sports a better and bigger cast than the usual Saturday Syfy fare, including Mariel Hemingway (“Manhattan”), LeVar Burton (“Roots,” ‘‘Star Trek: The Next Generation”), French Stewart (“3rd Rock From the Sun”) and Ethan Suplee (“My Name Is Earl”). For all of the gore, the most monstrous thing about the movie is its dialogue.

A high school student flees the father of her unplanned infant when she discovers that he is violent and manipulative in the 2012 made-for-TV movie “Stalked at 17” (7 p.m. Saturday, Lifetime).

Saturday’s other highlights

The San Francisco Giants and Detroit Tigers meet in game 3 of the World Series (6:30 p.m., Fox).

Notre Dame and Oklahoma square off in college football (7 p.m., ABC).

Catherine Bell returns for “The Good Witch’s Charm” (8 p.m., Hallmark), the fifth helping of the gently magical series of TV movies.

“Doomsday Preppers Bugged Out” (9 p.m., National Geographic) profiles the obsessed.

Ben Affleck, Usher, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Ronnie Corbett and Miranda Hart appear as “The Graham Norton Show” (10 p.m., BBC America) returns for a new season.

Actor/comedian D.L. Hughley sets out to save the black man with his comedy special “DL Hughley: The Endangered List” (10 p.m., Comedy Central).

Seth MacFarlane hosts “Saturday Night Live” (10:30 p.m., NBC), featuring musical guest Frank Ocean. Cult choice A cad’s embittered mistress (Simone Signoret) and naive wife (Vera Clouzot) conspire to murder him and hide the evidence in the 1955 French shocker “Diabolique” (7 p.m. Saturday, TCM), directed by Henri-Georges Clouzot.

vite them over for family functions if you wish. Put less of an obligation on this relationship, and you may find it is easier to handle. Dear Annie: I am the youngest of five and am a lonely, 39-year-old single woman. I admit that I have made some poor choices. We live in a small town, and everyone knows about my mistakes. But instead of standing up for me, my family members, including my own mother, delight in slandering my name. My brothers’ wives can be particularly cruel. To me, when someone attacks a family member, the proper response is to say that you won’t speak gossip or evil, and demonstrate loyalty by refusing to discuss such things. Most people would respect that. I have never hurt anyone or done anything unforgivable. I am rais-


For Saturday, Oct. 27: This year you open up to more excitement in your daily life. You could try to avoid all these unexpected events, but it will not work.

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)  Your choices could be limited by a recent event or action. A major adjustment or change in tactic might be necessary. Tonight: Dive into the moment. Taurus (April 20-May 20)  You have a strong sense about when you need to say less and follow someone else’s lead or others’ suggestions. Simultaneously, insights come forward about key people and/ or your interactions. Tonight: Allow someone to treat you well. Gemini (May 21-June 20)  You know what you want, but apparently so does someone else. You both can have what you want, if you decide to give up black-and-white rigidity. Tonight: Wherever the happening is, you are right in the middle. Cancer (June 21-July 22)  By leaning back and enjoying yourself, you’ll see new vistas and possibilities. Let someone you respect call the shots. Tonight: In the limelight. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)  Read between the lines. A child or new flame could be unusually forthright, which forces you to step back and take this person seriously. Tonight: Off on an adventure.

I have been tormented and disrespected for years. I am horrified at the dawning realization of how much of a lie my family life has been. So I am planning to move to another state and cut all ties. I am in therapy and learning that I don’t deserve this terrible treatment. Please tell your readers not to judge their family members or hold their past against them. — Moving On Now Dear Moving On: Family members have been known to treat one another terribly because they expect to be repeatedly forgiven and tolerated. We are glad you are receiving therapy, and we hope it will help you get a fresh start.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)  You will have a tendency to say more in the next few weeks. Currently, a close friend or loved one dominates your space, if not your thoughts. Tonight: Run with someone’s fun idea. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)  Others seem determined to have it their way. If you become resistant, ask yourself why you feel that way before acting out or saying “no.” Tonight: Go with someone else’s plans. Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)  Your words and actions carry much more power than in the past. You have a way and style that let others know you are not kidding. Tonight: If you can, be a couch potato. Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)  You have a fiery side that demands attention. You might feel pressured financially or need to update your budget. Tonight: Be spontaneous ... throw a party. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)  Know what you want and expect from a situation. You have made decisions up to now that you felt were unchangeable, but as you grow, you see many more options. Tonight: Happiest close to home. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)  While someone might be vested in surprising you, your response might do more than just jolt him or her. A friend who sometimes is pushy demands your time now. Tonight: Speak your mind. Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)  Be sensitive to your options. You have many more available to you than you know. Tonight: Hang out close to home. — The astrological forecast should be read for entertainment only.

Why haven’t undecided voters made up their minds yet? By Connie Cass and Jennifer Agiesta Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Who are these people who still can’t make up their minds? They’re undecided voters like Kelly Cox, who spends his days repairing the big rigs that haul central California’s walnuts, grapes, milk and more across America. He doesn’t put much faith in either Barack Obama or Mitt Romney. But he figures he’s got plenty of time — a little more than a week — to settle on one of them before Nov. 6. And he definitely does plan to vote. “I’ll do some online research,” said Cox, co-owner of a Delhi, Calif., truck repair shop. “I don’t have time to watch presidential debates because it’s a lot of garbage anyway. They’re not asking the questions that the people want to hear.” About 5 percent of Americans with solid plans to vote have yet to pick their presidential candidate, according to a new AP-GfK poll. When you add in those who lean only tentatively toward their choice or won’t declare a favorite, about 16 percent of likely voters look ripe for persuasion. That’s about the same as a month ago. In a super-tight race, undecided voters have taken on almost mythic stature. Their questions at the town hall-style debate are parsed. The president dialed up 9,000 of them for an Air Force One conference call as he flew to Los Angeles this week. But the undecided also endure Twitter sniping and late-night TV ribbing. They’re derided as uninformed nincompoops who don’t merit the power they wield. As David Letterman put it: “You’re idiots! Make up your mind!” Do these wafflers, ruminators and procrastinators deserve coddling — or scorn? Are they just misunderstood? A look at who they are and what they’re waiting for:

They’re not blank slates Two-thirds of persuadable voters have an established party preference, the AP-GfK poll shows. They’re roughly divided between those who call themselves Democrats or lean that way and those who are Republicans or lean to that side. So why not just plan to vote with their party? “They are really a little bit torn,” said Lynn Vavreck, an associate professor of political science at the University of California, Los Angeles. “They may have some issue positions that are counter to


their party, or they’re not sure how they stand on some things.” Nancy Hoang, a University of Minnesota freshman studying mathematics, considers herself a fiscal conservative and leans Republican. Yet she vacillated because she agrees with the Democrats’ support for gay marriage and opposition to voter ID laws. “I could have gone either way,” said Hoang, 18. Not until after the final debate Monday did she decide: Her first-ever presidential vote will go to Romney. Most of these undecided voters will come home to their favored party by Election Day, predicts Vavreck, who studies an ongoing survey of registered voters as well as trends from past elections.

Are they even paying attention? Professors have a euphemism: low-information voters. The bulk of registered voters who are still undecided fall into that group, researchers say. “They’re basically not that interested in politics,” Vavreck said. “They pay less attention to news in general.” Her image of the typical undecided American, based on her research: “the single mom with a couple of kids who just doesn’t have time to be attuned to politics but feels like it’s her civic duty to vote, and may or may not show up at the polls.” Yet the still-deciding who are committed to voting don’t see themselves as out of touch. In the AP-GfK poll, 85 percent of the persuadables said they have a “great deal” or “quite a bit” of interest in following the campaign, almost as high as among other likely voters. Rita Kirk, a communications professor at Southern Methodist University, seeks out these involvedbut-undecided voters in swing counties of states with close presidential contests. She gathered the groups that recorded their live reactions on CNN during the debates. They are following the race, she insists. “They know that they’re in a county that’s going to make a difference,” Kirk said. “They’re wanting to make a good choice, and they kind of feel the weight and gravitas of that.” So what do they think? They’re of two minds. Persuadable voters are more likely to trust Romney to do a better job handling the economy and the federal budget deficit, the AP-GfK poll shows. And


they’re about as comfortable with Romney as they are with Obama on foreign policy. They are more likely to say Obama has a clear vision for the future, however. They tend to say he understands the problems of people like them better than Romney does. They also give Obama a broad advantage on making the right decision on women’s issues. They’re worried about the future. Only 3 in 10 persuadable voters think the economy will improve in the coming year, compared with 6 in 10 decided voters.

What’s taking so long? Some see virtue in refusing to rush. Victoria Cook, a 27-yearold psychology student at Arapahoe Community College near Denver, leans toward Obama. But she stood in line to see Romney and Ryan at a rally with rocker Kid Rock this week. “I don’t want it to get to the point where you just write off the other guys right away,” Cook said as she waited. “So I’ll listen to what they have to say.” Kirk, the professor, said many undecided voters are so annoyed by months of TV commercials and punditry and news coverage that they just tune it all out until Election Day nears. Will they decide this election? It’s possible. “That small group of people can make a difference if the vast majority of them swing in one direction,” said Rutgers University political science Professor Richard Lau, who studies how voters decide. But that would be unusual. Late deciders tend to be divided, not vote as a block — unless they are swept up in a bigger wave, Lau said. In 1980, for example, October polls showed President Jimmy Carter in a tight race with Ronald Reagan. “It was very close up until the last few days and somehow everybody just decided, ‘Enough. We’re going to change courses here,’” Lau said. “Usually what happens is that the independent voters change in the direction that somehow the nature of the times is already going.” Still, an advantage among procrastinators could swing the race in a hotly contested state. In the last two presidential elections, about 1 in 10 voters surveyed as they left polling places said they’d settled on their candidate within the previous week. About 5 percent decided on Election Day. No word on how many made up their minds while standing in the voting booth.

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) — George McGovern made history with his loss of the 1972 presidential election in a historic landslide, but he was praised Friday for galvanizing the Democratic party’s liberal wing and inspiring a new generation to take up his causes. At his funeral, friends and colleagues remembered McGovern as an early critic of the Vietnam War, a tireless fighter in the battle to feed the poor around the world, and a man who will continue to draw young people into public life. “George McGovern’s voice is not gone. It is simply waiting new voices, new consciences that have the courage of their conviction,” said former Colorado Sen. Gary Hart, who was McGovern’s campaign manager in 1972. Hart was one of three former Democratic presidential candidates who paid personal respects Friday to McGovern, who died Sunday at age 90 af-

WILL MEAD HOLDS A TRI-FOLDED FLAG while watching with family members as the casket of his great-grandfather, former Democratic U.S. Sen. and three-time presidential candidate George McGovern, is carried Friday into the Washington Pavilion of Arts and Science in Sioux Falls, S.D., for the funeral service. ter a brief stay in hospice care. Hart, Walter Mondale and John Kerry — who like McGovern all spent time in the Senate before unsuccessful runs for the White House — led a crowd of hundreds of mourners. Hart was the only one of the three to speak at the funeral.


China blocked access to The New York Times website Friday after the paper published a lengthy article claiming the family of Premier Wen Jiabao has amassed assets worth $2.7 billion through a web of investments. The report said most of Wen’s family’s wealth was accumulated after he rose to high office in 2002.

U.S. economy expands at modest 2% pace By Christopher S. Rugaber Associated Press

WASHINGTON — The latest snapshot of economic growth shows the U.S. recovery remains tepid. Growth in the July-September quarter climbed slightly but was still too weak to stir significantly more hiring. The pace of expansion rose to a 2 percent annual rate from 1.3 percent in the April-June quarter, led by more consumer and government spending. Voters who are still undecided about the presidential election aren’t likely to be swayed by Friday’s mixed report from the Commerce Department. “For the average American, I don’t think changes in quarterly GDP” make a big difference in their perception of the economy, said Andrew Kohut, president of the Pew Research Center. “It’s certainly good for the president that the number is not bad because that would resonate.” With 11 days until the election, the economy is being kept afloat by a revi-

talized consumer and the early stages of a housing recovery. But more than three years after the Great Recession ended, the nation continues to struggle because businesses are reluctant to invest, and slower global growth has cut demand for American exports. Republican nominee Mitt Romney is telling voters that President Barack Obama’s policies have kept the economy from accelerating and have even slowed growth in the past two years. The 1.7 percent annual growth rate for the first nine months of 2012 remains slightly behind last year’s 1.8 percent growth. And both are below 2010’s growth of 2.4 percent. The economy contracted at a 5.3 percent annual rate in the first three months of 2009, just as Obama took office during the worst downturn since the Great Depression. Obama says his policies stabilized the economy later that year and argues that the stimulus package and auto bailout helped it grow in 2010.

“George McGovern was a voice of conscience for our nation in our time,” Hart said. Those who were uncomfortable with McGovern called him a liberal as an insult to try to imply he was weak, Hart added, but “he was larger than any political label, particularly a demonized one.”
