Ottawa ‘Extreme Makeover’ to air soon
Big 12 Conference adding West Virginia
By Shaun Hittle
The Big 12 welcomed West Virginia from the Big East Conference on Friday and bid goodbye to Missouri before the Tigers even had a chance to finalize their move to the Southeastern Conference. The Big 12 said it expects to have 10 schools for the 201213 season, listing West Virginia but not Missouri, which is expected to complete its move to the SEC any day now. Page 1B
The wait is over. A national television audience will get to see a new home in Ottawa on “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition.” The two-hour show will air at 7 p.m. Friday on ABC. Tom Weigand, president of the Ottawa Chamber of Commerce, said the chamber recently was notified by ABC representatives about the airing, and there’s been a lot of excitement in the community. “A lot of people are interested,” Weigand said. “I was amazed at the following.” Local volunteer crews feverishly worked in the hot August sun during a two-day build in Ottawa for the family of Staff Sgt. Allen Hill, who was injured by a roadside bomb in Iraq. The new home includes special accommodations for Hill and his wife and two sons, including extensive sound-proofing, because Hill suffers from post-traumatic stress disorder. Weigand said the build was a big boost to Ottawa, and he said ABC and the volunteer crews were a pleasure to work with. “Really a great deal,” he said.

OFFICER KEITH JONES CHECKS THE THIRD LEVEL of the evidence room at the Judicial and Law Enforcement Center, 111 E. 11th St. Crime evidence is housed in various locations and space is getting tight.
Space cited as reason for new facility By George Diepenbrock email@example.com
Lawrence Police Chief Tarik Khatib peers into the mountains of cardboard boxes lining the main evidence storage room on the second floor of the Judicial and Law Enforcement Center, 111 E. 11th St. He jokes that his two evidence officers and civilian employee, who oversee thousands of pieces of evidence for the police and the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office, could work for shipping giant UPS. “There’s not a wasted square foot of space, really,” Khatib says.
OFFICER MICHAEL RAMSEY processes items that were found in a stolen car. He had to use a roller storage cabinet for a work surface in the garage under the Judicial and Law Enforcement Center.
A ZIPLOCK BAG holds smaller bags of cash that is waiting to be counted in the evidence room.
The room is in the former gym from when that part of the building was a jail, and it now includes a steel staircase for two makeshift floors inside. It’s more room for evidence officers Keith Jones and Doug Payne to find a place for new evidence, like possible stolen items that were recovered or even drugs, guns and money. But there’s not much space left, and the police department has evidence stored in more than one place, including at the cityowned former Morton’s

Job seekers look for tips at Career Connection By Shaun Hittle email@example.com
Retired Douglas County Sheriff’s Officer Sgt. Ken Fangohr spent three decades in law enforcement. In all that time, he had a lot of things to worry about on the job. But with the steady career, he spent little time worrying about his résumé. “It’s all new to me,” Fangohr said Friday at the third annual Community Career Connection event at Pinnacle Career Institute, 1601 W. 23rd St. Fangohr, looking for the “perfect second career,” joined other job seekers at the event, picking up tips about interviewing, résumés and other job-searching skills. And lot of the attendees were older workers, such as Fangohr, looking for second careers or starting over after spending decades at one job, said Tracy Bedell, a Johnson County Community College adjunct professor who was helping job searchers with mock interviews. For those workers, the employment environment is considerably different from years ago, she said. “The landscape has changed,” Bedell said. For some, re-entering the job market is “kind of scary.” Despite the tight job market, Please see CAREER, page 2A

Fundraiser for state arts revived after being dropped By John Hanna Associated Press
TOPEKA — New Kansas Arts Commission members plan to revive a project to raise private dollars for its programs only months after the agency dropped it amid a budget dispute with Gov. Sam Brownback that made Kansas the only state in the nation to eliminate its arts funding. A plan to sell special license plates to promote the arts, more than two years in development, was close to fruition when the commission scrapped it in May, citing uncertainty about its own future. The move cut off a potential source of money for arts programs as arts advocates worried about losing state funds. The commission has been controlled by Brownback appointees since July. New member David Lindstrom said Friday that it is pursuing the project, with the goal of raising several hundred thousand dollars. The commission’s former chairman is skeptical, questioning whether arts advocates upset with Brownback and committed to public funding for arts program will buy the plate. But Lindstrom

Billings Parkway. City commissioners on Tuesday will consider a proposed time line for assessing the police department’s buildings. “At this point people recognize that we at least need to take a look at what our facility needs are,” he said. “The first step in that is finding an architectural firm or somebody familiar with police facilities to take a look at what we have.” The proposal has the commission approving a possible architectural firm by late December, which could report back to commissioners in February. Commissioners did include $30,000 in their 2012 budget for the study. Khatib said the outside firm could check for efficiencies in how the department currently uses its facilities, and commissioners could compare that with recommendations he has made, including for a building designed as a police department that could help protect more police vehicles, have better interview rooms and allow for the department to be housed in one building to facilitate better communication between patrol officers and detectives, for example. He said the city around 2000 purchased the west Lawrence building, which was currently constructed as

said the goal is to have the blue, gold and white “State of the Arts” plates, festooned with a sunflower, appearing on Brownback Kansas roads next year. “The challenge, obviously, is to operate under a new set of rules in trying to develop advocacy for the arts,” said Lindstrom, a Johnson County commissioner and former player with professional football’s Kansas City Chiefs. “We’re very ambitious as it relates to the numbers.” The commission had a final design for the plate to approve when its top staffer told the state Division of Vehicle’s director that the commission was dropping the project. Four days later, Brownback vetoed the commission’s entire budget; in the coming weeks he named a new chairman and replaced seven of the commission’s 12 members. Brownback’s veto cost arts programs in Kansas nearly $2 million. His action eliminated $689,000 in state funds, and the National Endowment for the Arts and the Mid-America
Arts Alliance, based in Kansas City, Mo., have cut Kansas off from nearly $1.3 million more. Previously, Arts Commission members had seen the special license plate as a way to raise only between $12,500 and $50,000 annually. Yet they were enthusiastic about the idea in talking it up in 2008, and their proposal had broad support when legislators authorized it in 2009. When the commission dropped the project five months ago, arts advocates had been frustrated and angry with the administration for months. The cancellation became official in a single-page letter May 24 to the Division of Vehicles, obtained by The Associated Press through an open records request. “We were getting ready to execute it when all of this happened,” said Henry Schwaller IV, the commission’s former chairman, still a member because his term doesn’t expire until 2013. “It’s really unfortunate.” Lindstrom and new commission Chairwoman Linda Browning Weis aren’t criticizing the old commission for dropping the project, citing the work that its members did in moving the project forward.
an office building, and that half of it is not habitable for the department without extensive renovation. “A law enforcement facility sometimes is not perceived as glamorous and important and maybe as culturally significant as some of the other projects the city does,” Khatib said. “But there is a real need for a police department facility.”
glary case from 1998. Jones works to train officers, especially the new recruits, about how to package items to take up as little space as possible, especially when they are in paper bags. “Do not package air,” Jones told the department’s 13 recruits in a recent presentation. “We’ve got plenty of it back there, and we really don’t need any more.” He also implored the recruits to be cautious when they recover firearms, especially to make sure they are no longer loaded. If they can’t get the ammunition out, they must notify a supervisor and Jones himself before they submit the gun in an evidence locker. “We need to know about it,” Jones said. “What I don’t want to have is one of us come to work and find a loaded weapon and it accidentally goes off.” He also warned the recruits to be extra careful when they submit drugs, guns and money as evidence. Cases involving those items are most likely to be hotly contested in court, he said, and bring extra scrutiny on the department. “You can see where your integrity as a police officer is very, very important,” Jones said. “You have to take that extra step and make sure that it’s done right, so that something doesn’t come back on you and could bite you.”
Evidence process, challenges Finding space for the 120,000 items collected in evidence is one major challenge the department has, Khatib said. It can be anything from a crushed can from a minorin-possession case to a weapon in an alleged homicide to a vehicle bumper in a fatality accident. “The proper handling of evidence and the proper preservation of evidence is a critical component of case preparation and prosecution and finding the truth in cases,” Khatib said. He said his officers do their best despite the obstacle the tight space presents. Often the evidence collected must stay there because court cases can take months or even years before they’re resolved. And even then, they’re required to preserve certain things later in case of an appeal. Jones, the evidence officer, pointed on Friday to a box of items the department had finally received legal permission to get rid of. They were from an auto bur-

Terrorist attacks outside U.S. Embassy A man armed with hand grenades and an automatic weapon opened fire outside the U.S. Embassy in Bosnia Friday in what authorities called a terrorist attack. A policeman and the gunman were wounded, but the embassy said none of its employees was hurt. Sarajevo Mayor Alija Behmen said the gunman “got off a tram with a Kalashnikov and started shooting at the American Embassy.” Witnesses told Bosnian television that the man urged pedestrians to move away, saying he was targeting only the embassy. He wore a beard and was dressed in an outfit with short pants that reveal his ankles — typical for followers of the conservative Wahhabi branch of Islam. One police officer guarding the building was wounded before police surrounded the gunman. After a 30-minute standoff, the sound of a single shot echoed and AP video showed the shooter slump to the ground.

Change in succession rule proposed First came love, then came marriage. But what if — someday — it’s a girl in Kate Middleton’s baby carriage? If she’s the royal couple’s eldest child, new rules could push the princess to a prime place in history: the first girl to accede to the throne and beat out any younger brothers. The Commonwealth countries agreed Friday to change centuries-old rules of succession that put male heirs on the throne ahead of any older sisters, following nations such as Sweden, Belgium, the Netherlands and Norway that have scrapped male primogeniture. The move is a baby step — the changes must still be approved by the legislatures of the 16 nations where Queen Elizabeth II is head of state before they could take effect — but is seen as a triumph over outdated, sexist practices. 3 | GEORGIA

JENNIFER PERSON, AN EMERGENCY MEDICAL TECHNICIAN with Lawrence-Douglas County Fire Medical, gets a flu shot from Dan Franke, also with Lawrence-Douglas County Fire Medical, Friday morning. The Health Department, the city of Lawrence, and Lawrence-Douglas County Fire Medical teamed up to provide flu shots to city employees and their families in a drive-thru clinic at Fire Station 5, 1911 Stewart Ave.
Drive-thru flu shot clinics also a public health drill By Karrey Britt
Costly wildfire defies firefighters
A wildfire that scorched hundreds of square miles since last spring continues to creep through the Okefenokee Swamp as it burns underground fueled by dead and decaying plants — and the cost to taxpayers so far is $52.7 million and rising. It’s been six months since a lightning strike ignited the Honey Prairie fire April 28, deep within the boundaries of the Okefenokee National Wildlife Refuge near the Georgia-Florida line. There’s little if any active flame, and the smoke that once smothered much of southeast Georgia has been reduced to sporadic puffs wafting up from the swamp’s surface. “It’s burning down mostly underground,” said Arthur Webster, supervisory ranger for the 402,000acre refuge. “It’s burning deeply enough where occasionally a tree will just fall over because all the peat is burned out around it.”
For the first time, the city of Lawrence and the LawrenceDouglas County Health Department have teamed up to offer drive-thru flu shot clinics for city employees. The clinics were offered in Fire Station 5 at 1911 Stewart Ave., and the immunizations were administered by paramedics. It was all part of a drill to see if such clinics could be used in a public health emergency. Health department spokeswoman Lisa Horn said that during the H1N1 outbreak of 2009, fire and medical personnel had some interest in help-
ing with the mass vaccination efforts. At the time, it was not feasible because they had never done one before. “We decided to do it as a drill as part of the city’s annual employee flu clinic. It’s gone really well so far,” Horn said. About 410 people have been vaccinated through clinics on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. The last one will be this morning. “Certainly if we have another pandemic like H1N1, we need vaccinators and being able to use the paramedic skills
as vaccinators is just fantastic,” she said. Megan Gilliland, communications manager for the city, said they typically have between 400 and 500 people take advantage of flu shots offered through the city. She said they plan to survey the employees to see how the process went for them. Gilliland said she thought it was an efficient process, especially for those working out in the field. “It was very quick,” she said. — Health reporter Karrey Britt can be reached at 832-7190.

Leadership issues coming to light at KU Medical Center By Dolph C. Simons Jr.
These are stressful and delicate times at the Kansas University Medical Center. The general public might think this refers to the center’s application for the highly prized certification as a National Cancer Institute cancer center, and this indeed is a tremendously important effort. According to knowledgeable observers, there probably won’t be any answer on the application before September, and all those supporting the effort should realize competition is intense, applicants often have to make more than one application before being accepted, and current national economic conditions present added hurdles for first-time applicants. The stressful and delicate situation mentioned above, however, is
the result of a combination of actions or nonactions that now have forced KU Chancellor Bernadette Gray-Little to have discussions about organizational changes at the center with Barbara Atkinson, KU executive vice chancellor and executive dean of the School of Medicine. This is long overdue! Earlier this week, Gray-Little sent an email to KUMC faculty members thanking them for participating in the recent performance review questionnaire on Atkinson and thanking committee members for their help on this effort. She also said she and Dr. Atkinson were discussing organizational changes. The questionnaires went out in mid-July, and, according to various medical school sources, this was the first time Atkinson has undergone a review, contrary to school
policies that call for periodic reviews of all deans and department chairs. Atkinson has been at the school since 2000 and was named executive dean in 2002 and executive vice chancellor in 2005.
COMMENTARY There has been considerable discussion and concern by many at the medical school and others interested in the university about whether and when the results of Atkinson’s evaluation would be made public and what the chancellor would do with what she learned from the survey.

and Atkinson? What kind of grade did Atkinson receive from her associates at the medical center? Over the past several weeks, there have been “leaks” about the evaluation and much speculation about where the leaks are coming from. Surprisingly, it is believed the leaks are coming from the dean’s office, not from faculty members, not from the committee handling the evaluation and not from GrayLittle’s office. It is understood the survey/ evaluation was “shockingly bad.” It also is understood Atkinson intends to fight and defend her leadership skills. Her critics claim her history at KUMC has been to fight and deny any wrongdoing. It is unfortunate the situation has reached this point when it could have been resolved months or years ago if
responsible officials and parties had measured up to their responsibilities and not tried to cover up rather than come clean with the public. Many share the blame for allowing this messy and ugly situation to reach this point. They could have blown the whistle or used some leadership to correct and resolve the problem. One factor has played a significant role in causing various individuals to try to hush discussion of the Atkinson situation. This is the school’s massive effort to receive NCI certification. Officials thought anything bad or critical of Atkinson would handicap the medical center’s application, although various cancer officials have told this writer the excellence of the school’s research efforts and scope Please see COLUMN, page 4A

Mortar Board society to Column honor KU faculty, staff
CONTINUED FROM PAGE 3A
By Andy Hyland firstname.lastname@example.org
A Kansas University honor society will recognize five KU faculty and staff members as outstanding educators at an upcoming basketball game. The KU Mortar Board society is a chapter of a national organization that values service, academics and leadership, said Andy Kriegh, the group’s president. The recipients of the Outstanding Educator award are: Jennifer Jordan, director of business career services at the KU School of Business; Mikhail Barybin, associate professor of chemistry; Peter Grund, assistant professor of English; Leslie Tuttle, assistant professor of history; and Susan Harris, distinguished professor of English. “It’s to show that we really appreciate a lot of the efforts that people on our campus put into educating our students,” Kriegh said. He said all 48 seniors in the group were able to nominate educators for the award, and all

The app also provides feedback, giving users and families information that can help users manage their condition and improve their social skills. “This is an app that follows you around and coaches you,” said Mark Bowers, a pediatric psychologist in private prac-
of them voted on the recipients. “We didn’t box ourselves in by strict guidelines,” Kriegh said, noting that one of the recipients, Jordan, isn’t even a faculty member. “She’s an educator because we thought she’s really helping to shape our lives after college, too,” Kriegh said. Erin Robinson, a senior from Lawrence and a Mortar Board member, served as a co-chair for the awards. “It kind of goes further than somebody who’s just a good teacher,” she said, adding that the group tried to find people who also served as mentors and were available to help students outside of class. “In college, your education is so much more than what happens inside the classroom.” The educators will be honored during the men’s KUFort Hays State basketball game Nov. 8 and again during a Nov. 13 reception. — Higher education reporter Andy Hyland can be reached at 832-6388.

of its cancer care and research are the principal factors, not how the dean is performing. As noted above, the NCI application has been sent to the proper office and, because of Gray-Little’s email to medical school personnel, the question of what kind of job Atkinson is doing is now out in the public. This is a top priority for the chancellor. Who allowed the matter to reach this point? There are many who could have put this matter to rest. Former KU Chancellor Robert Hemenway, who did such a good job in calling for a separation of the KU Hospital from state control, did not clamp down or demand better leadership from Atkinson. In fact, he increased the problem and unrest within the KUMC family by joining Atkinson and others in Kansas City and Topeka in supporting an effort to weaken the medical center and KU Hospital in order to strengthen Kansas City’s St. Luke’s Hospital. Fortunately, this effort was defeated. Unfortunately, however, Hemenway lost control of the medical school by not reining in Atkinson. Next comes Gray-Little. She is the one who finally blew the whistle, but this didn’t come about until a delegation of distinguished medical school faculty members called on the chancellor to tell her about problems with the school and actions and policies of Atkinson. Then, this past April, Atkinson fired a distinguished faculty member, Dr. Curtis Klaassen, chairman of the department of pharmacology, toxicology and therapeutics, for highly questionable and suspect reasons. At that time, the question was raised of whether Atkinson had under-
gone a peer review as called for in the school’s management policies. She hadn’t, and, in July, Gray-Little called for such a review, assuring all those who were asked to participate that they would remain totally anonymous. As noted above, the findings of the survey are reported to be “shockingly bad.” It also is reported that Gray-Little may have shown Atkinson one or more signed letters written by individuals critical of the dean and executive vice chancellor. Atkinson, by the way, is the highest paid state employee with a salary of $543,614, plus earnings from several KU medical school departments that may bring her compensation close to $1 million. Now the matter is in the chancellor’s hands, and how she resolves the ticklish situation will say a great deal, good or bad, about the chancellor, who also has a good share of critics. Surely, Hemenway and Gray-Little played central roles in the KU medical school drama, but recent members of the Board of Regents also were just as guilty, perhaps more so. Some or all of the regents should have been aware of the growing troubles at the medical center. If they were, they should have taken action to correct the situation. If they knew and didn’t act, they were negligent in not carrying out their responsibilities. Unfortunately, this isn’t a new situation. The same thing happened in the closing days of Chancellor Hemenway’s tenure. The regents knew Hemenway was facing tough personal challenges, but they did nothing and left him twisting in the wind. He deserved far better from the regents, as did the university and the state. Time and time again, whether it concerned the unfortunate KU School of Busi-
L AWRENCE J OURNAL -W ORLD ness leadership question, the Lew Perkins era or other matters, recent regents either have not been informed and did not know what was going on at the campuses they were supposed to oversee — or, more likely, did know but didn’t want to get involved. The way the system is set up today, there is no way for the Board of Regents to keep track of problems on the campuses of the six state universities, the KU medical school, and the state’s community colleges and vocational-technical schools. There needs to be some kind of advisory group for each school that would report to the regents and keep them informed about what is going on. In far too many cases, regents have been flying blind or don’t what to know about and confront tough situations. Faculty members at the medical school have tried to maintain the proper degree of confidentiality about internal matters at the school, but, at the same time, they realize the school is being handcuffed by its present leadership. Gov. Sam Brownback has made it clear he wants to see the school improve its national rankings, and he has sent this message to members of the current Board of Regents. Unfortunately, there is a desperate need for leadership at KU. There is a sense the university is adrift and rudderless. The school’s potential is almost unlimited,
but recent situations, including those at the KU’s business school, medical school and athletic department, the lack of enlightened oversight by the regents, problems at Strong Hall, all contribute to the unrest, frustration and concern among growing numbers of KU alumni and friends. Hopefully, the KU Medical Center situation will mark a turning point in getting the KU Express, and all of its schools and departments, back on track.

Come see me today and you’ll see how Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrreat I can be! I borrowed the catch phrase from my Uncle Tony, and instead of selling sugary cereal to kids I’m peddling love and companionship. About 4 years old, I’m a mellow girl. My coat is really cool because it is black, gray, and red in a unique mackerel-and-calico pattern. Take me home today; now THAT would be Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrreat!
One of the staff called me lazy recently. What? I call it “relaxed and carefree.“ I just don’t get worked up by too much, okay? But I do soak up all the attention that comes my way. And it does come my way, because either people find me adorable, or they’re making silly comments about the lazy cat (mostly the former). My white coat includes a brown and black mackerel pattern. I’m housetrained and get along with other cats.
At about 7 pounds, I’m just a little guy who’s big on fun! Attention? I can’t get enough. And love? I can’t give enough! Don’t think me an ordinary black cat. No way. The folks here say I have an “awesomely unique personality.” What’s that mean? I guess the only way to learn my secret is to come meet me. I’m 3 to 5 years old, full of play, and as your best friend, I’m simply a “saint” (as in Nicholas!).

Soldier sentenced to 2 years on probation A Douglas County judge Thursday sentenced a 20-yearold Fort Leavenworth solider to serve two years on probation for his involvement in a December fight in downtown Lawrence in which a 20-year-old Kansas City, Kan., man was stabbed. Christopher J. McCallum pleaded guilty in September to attempted aggravated battery in the case. Originally he was charged with aggravated battery. McCallum had no prior convictions, making him eligible for probation. “Community corrections is a more intensive supervised probation,” District Judge Sally Pokorny said. “The reason for that is because this is a severe offense.” Douglas County prosecutors accused McCallum of attacking the Kansas City man with a knife around 1 a.m. Dec. 5, 2010, near Seventh and Massachusetts streets. The victim’s injuries were not lifethreatening, police had said. Police were called to a large fight in the street early that morning. McCallum’s initial attorney in the case had said the victim in the case had attacked two of McCallum’s friends that night, but prosecutors disputed that. If McCallum is found to violate terms of his probation he could serve 18 months in prison. He will also be required to pay $14,428 in restitution and other court costs and fees. He is also barred from using alcohol and drugs while on probation.
The Journal-World does not print accounts of all police reports filed. The newspaper generally reports: • Burglaries, only with a loss of $1,000 or more, unless there are unusual circumstances. To protect victims, we generally don’t identify them by name. • The names and circumstances of people arrested, only after they are charged. • Assaults and batteries, only if major injuries are reported. • Holdups and robberies.

Ex-student gets probation in assault By George Diepenbrock firstname.lastname@example.org
A Douglas County judge Friday ordered a former Kansas University student to serve three years on probation in connection with a case in which a woman alleged she was sexually assaulted at a fraternity last year. Andrew John Hansen, 19, had pleaded guilty in June to aggravated battery and admitted that he had touched the 18-year-old woman in her vaginal area the night of Aug. 21. Prosecutors initially charged Hansen, who is no longer a KU student, with one count of rape, which carried a more severe punishment. The female KU student, who is now 19, reported to Lawrence police that she was at the Delta Chi fraternity house, 1245 West Campus Road, and fell asleep in a room there. McGowan said prosecutors had evidence the woman woke up and alleged Hansen, who was an acquaintance, was touching her. Defense attorneys Tricia Tenpenny and Tom Bath have said both Hansen and the woman had consumed alcohol that night. The woman called Lawrence police the next day when she returned to her residence hall, and officers arrested Hansen after they interviewed him. After his plea, Hansen had agreed to serve time in jail prior to his sentencing, and District Judge Peggy Kittel said Friday he had served 105 days in jail. Hansen also had undergone a sex offender evaluation, but he won’t be required to register as a sex offender. “You need to understand how your actions impact you and everyone else,” Kittel said. He’s also barred from consuming alcohol or drugs while on probation. Bath said Hansen hoped to enroll at a college in Missouri and that he would perform 100 hours of community service work. The girl’s father said she had no malice or ill will toward Hansen and that his family wanted both sides to be able to move on, although it was a struggle. “This wasn’t just a weekend event. It isn’t something she forgot,” he said. “It’s something that we’re working with as a family on a daily basis.”

LAWRENCE CITY COMMISSION Agenda highlights • 6:35 p.m. Tuesday • City Hall, Sixth and Massachusetts streets • Knology Channel 25 • Meeting documents online at lawrenceks.org
More glass recycling coming to city BOTTOM LINE Lawrence city commissioners are expected to approve plans to hire Ripple Glass LLC, of Kansas City, Mo., to create a citywide glass-recycling program, complete with additional drop-off locations for residents and businesses to recycle glass. The city received two proposals: One from Ripple Glass, and another from the 12th & Haskell Recycle Center, Lawrence. The item is part of the commission’s consent agenda, which is typically approved in one motion and without discussion. The Department of Public Works recommends going with Ripple Glass, which would place four large containers in the city.
LOOK FOR THIS IN SUNDAY’S PAPER!
BACKGROUND Lawrence city commissioners agreed Sept. 13 to seek proposals for such a service, and the city sent out notices to 10 companies. Two responded with proposals. Ripple Glass would buy and place four purple, Ripplebranded roll-off containers in Lawrence. The city would be responsible for monitoring, maintaining and delivering the bins to a city-owned Ripple collection point, from which Ripple would transport the glass to Kansas City for processing. Ripple already provides such glass-recycling services in communities including Jefferson City, Mo.; Council Bluffs, Iowa; and Eureka Springs, Ark. The 12th & Haskell Recycle Center proposed a plan that would cost the city $65,000 for start-up costs, plus another $10,000 a month if it wanted the vendor to handle all operations. The city also would pay the center $30 for each ton of glass collected. The center also provides recycling services for Baldwin City.

Lookout in robbery sentenced
$7.99 2-Large 2-Topping
By George Diepenbrock email@example.com
A Douglas County judge on Friday ordered a 21-year-old Lawrence woman to serve two years on probation for serving as a lookout in a December robbery at Walmart, 3300 Iowa. District Judge Michael Malone ordered Jadin M. Schmutz to not use drugs or alcohol as a condition of her probation. Schmutz in August pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to commit robbery. Lonnie S. Schaefer, 23, and William O. Patterson, 19, have been convicted in connection with the robbery. Prosecutors also accused five people, including Schmutz, of serving as lookouts for the robbery. Schmutz is one of three of those five suspects to be convicted. Her defense attorney, Carl Folsom, told Malone Friday that Schmutz was under duress when she and her husband, Andrew Dean Schmutz, chose to help Schaefer and Patterson because they had financial struggles and feared what Schaefer and Patterson would do to them if they didn’t participate. Folsom said her husband received the couple’s share of the money from the robbery. “That also shows Ms. Schmutz was a minor actor in the conspiracy,” Folsom said. “She wasn’t even given her own cut of the money from the robbery.” Malone told Schmutz she faces 13 months in prison if she’s found to violate terms of her probation.

Halloween doesn’t have to be gorge-fest to be fun By Lindsey Tanner Associated Press
CHICAGO — Offer apples to trick-or-treaters and risk having your house get egged — maybe even by your own kids. But dentists and dietitians say you can still make Halloween reasonably healthy for little devils and witches without resorting to draculonian tactics, like no candy. “This is such a big adventure for them — let them have it, obviously with some caveats,” said Dr. Rhea Haugseth, a dentist in Marietta, Ga., who’s president of the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry There are tricks for keeping Halloween fun without risking cavities and extra pounds, like handing out dark chocolate instead of chewy candies or even bribing kids with a toy in exchange for the Halloween loot. Some studies have suggested dark chocolate is good for the heart, and chewy candies stick to the teeth. Just don’t go overboard on restrictions, says Cole Robbins, a Chicago 12-year-old and Halloween veteran. “Halloween is the one day of the year where we kids just kind of break out and overload on candy,” he said. To help prevent that kind of gorging, try to give children a healthy, filling meal before trick-or-treating, says Bethany Thayer, a spokeswoman for the American Dietetic Association who works at the Henry Ford Health System in Detroit. Procrastinators, take heart. Thayer also recommends waiting until Halloween day before buying candy, so no one is tempted to indulge beforehand. “I know people who have to go back to the store because they’ve completely gone through their candy” before Halloween, she said. Haugseth suggests avoiding cavity-promoting treats like caramels that stick to the teeth, or lollipops that bathe teeth in a long sugary bath. Also, having kids brush their teeth before trick-ortreating helps reduce plaque and bacteria, which interact with sugar to produce toothdecaying acid, Haugseth said. Kids should also brush right after eating candy, she said.
‘You can’t deprive them’ Ronni Litz Julien, a Miami nutritionist whose patients include overweight and obese kids, says another trick for parents is to ask kids not to dip into their loot bags until they bring it all home.
Charlie Litchfield/Idaho Press-Tribune File Photo
IN THIS OCT. 29, 2010, FILE PHOTO, HANNAH MOOS, 5, dressed as a bunch of grapes, asks for candy with her father, Kyle, of Melba, Idaho, at a Halloween event in downtown Nampa, Idaho. Dentists and dieticians say one can still make Halloween reasonably healthy for kids without resorting to tactics like no candy. That’s for safety, so parents can toss any suspicious-looking candy, but it also can prevent an “eating frenzy.” She suggests parents help sort through the loot, have kids select their 10 favorite pieces, and give the rest away. Offer the choice of eating all 10 pieces at once, or over 10 days. That gives them a sense of control, without feeling shortchanged, she said. “You can’t deprive them. It’s Halloween, for God’s sake,” she said. President Barack Obama joked this week on “The Tonight Show” that he’d warned his health-promoting wife that the White House would get egged if she gave trickor-treaters fresh fruit and raisins instead of candy. During festivities today, the Obamas will hand out White House M&Ms, cookies and dried fruit as they did the past two years. Dr. Janet Silverstein, a Gainesville, Fla., pediatrician and member of the American Academy of Pediatrics’ nutrition committee, says she doesn’t give out candy, offering fruit or pencils instead; so far her house is unscathed.
Make a trade When her own children were young, Silverstein would buy their candy for a nickel a piece. She recommends that to her patients’ parents, too — though not necessarily her other solution — she used to eat her kids’ candy. In some places, kids willing to give up their candy can make more than a nickel.
Dog survives gas chamber, goes up for adoption in N.J. By David Porter Associated Press
NEWARK, N.J. — Unnamed and unwanted, the young beagle mix was left anonymously in a drop box outside an Alabama pound. His life was supposed to end in a gas chamber. Instead, the young stray emerged frightened but unscathed, wagging his tail. Now, he’s being hailed as a miracle dog, given the name Daniel after the biblical figure who survived the lion’s den. And he has a fresh start in New Jersey, where a rescue group hopes to find him a good home. Only three animals have survived the gas chamber at the Animal Control facility in Florence, Ala., in the past 12 years. “Maybe God just had a better plan for this one,” said city spokesman Phil Stevenson. Daniel’s tail never stopped wagging as he stepped off a plane at a New Jersey airport, where he was flown Wednesday by the nonprofit Eleventh Hour Rescue group and placed with volunteer Jill Pavlik until he can be adopted. “He’s absolutely fabulous,” Pavlik, a hairdresser who works and lives in northern New Jersey, said Friday. “He walked in the house like he had always lived there. He’s very sweet, happy and outgoing.” Linda Schiller, the shelter’s founder and president, said the facility has already re-
Daniel the “Miracle Dog” ceived about 100 applications from people around the country seeking to adopt Daniel. About half said they weren’t interested in adopting another dog if the 20-pound Daniel wasn’t available. “Maybe we’ll get a cosmetic surgeon to make all our dogs look like Daniel,” Schiller said jokingly. She added that Daniel, while thin, hadn’t shown any residual effects of his ordeal. No one is sure why Daniel was the lone survivor. “It may be that his breathing was shallow because of a cold or something,” Stevenson said. Variables that could allow a dog to survive such a gassing include the number of animals placed in the chamber, the concentration of carbon monoxide, whether the chamber is airtight or gas is leaking out and the health of the animal, said Julie Morris, senior vice president of community outreach for the ASPCA. Young, healthy animals have the best chance for survival.
About 1,500 dentists across the country have agreed this year to participate in a Halloween candy buyback organized by Operation Gratitude. The California-based group periodically sends care packages to U.S. troops overseas. Some dentists pay kids $1 per pound of Halloween candy; last year, the program brought in 250,000 pounds of candy, said Carolyn Blashek, founder of the Van Nuys, Calif.-based group. Blashek said troops overseas appreciate it as a token of gratitude, and Halloween candy brings back lots of fond childhood memories. Some have given their candy to Afghan children, she noted. Entering your ZIP code on the group’s website, http://bit. ly/F1iSy will identify participating dentists. Parents who plan to encourage giving up candy
should be sure not to take it right away, says Brian Wansink, a Cornell University food behavior scientist and author of “Mindless Eating: Why We Eat More Than We Think.” That’s because of a psychology principle called “the endowment effect.” It refers to kids feeling a sense of ownership and putting a high value on candy they haul in. If you let them eat several pieces first, that feeling can fade and they won’t even feel hungry anymore. That’s the time to offer a trade, Wansink said. He’s tried that trick with his own three daughters, aged 2, 4, and 6, and says “it works like a charm.” His girls eagerly give up the rest of their Halloween candy in exchange for a new trinket or other toy that won’t rot their teeth, he said.

Many cities leaving Wall Street protesters alone By Erika Niedowski and Meghan Barr Associated Press
NEW YORK — While more U.S. cities are resorting to force to break up the Wall Street protests, many others — Philadelphia, New York, Minneapolis and Portland, Ore., among them — are content to let the demonstrations go on for now. New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, for example, said Friday that the several hundred protesters sleeping in Zuccotti Park, the unofficial headquarters of the movement that began in mid-September, can stay as long as they obey the law. “I can’t talk about other cities,” he said. “Our responsibilities are protect your rights and your safety. And I think we’re trying to do that. We’re trying to act responsibly and safely.” Still, the city made life a lot harder for the demonstrators: Fire inspectors seized a dozen cans of gasoline and six generators that powered lights, cooking equipment and laptops, saying they were safety hazards. In the span of three days this week, police broke up protest encampments in Oakland, Calif., Atlanta and, early Friday, San Diego and Nashville, Tenn. State troopers in Nashville cracked down after authori-

OCCUPY WALL STREET PROTESTERS continue to increase their makeshift shelter at Zuccotti Park in New York in this Oct. 25 photo. Cities across the U.S. and abroad have different strategies for dealing with the protests. ties imposed a curfew on the protest. Twenty-nine people were arrested and later released after a judge said the demonstrators were not given enough time to comply with the brand-new rule. They received citations for trespassing instead. Fifty-one people were arrested in San Diego, where authorities descended on a three-week-old encampment at the Civic Center Plaza and
Children’s Park and removed tents, canopies, tables and other furniture. Officials there cited numerous complaints about human and animal feces, urination, drug use and littering, as well as damage to city property — problems reported in many other cities as well. Police said the San Diego demonstrators can return without their tents and other belongings after the park is cleaned up.
Earlier this week, in the most serious clashes of the movement so far, more than 100 people were arrested and a 24-year-old Iraq War veteran suffered a skull fracture after Oakland police armed with tear gas and bean bag rounds broke up a 15-day encampment and repulsed an effort by demonstrators to retake the site. But other cities have rejected aggressive tactics, at least so far, some of them be-
cause they want to avoid the violence seen in Oakland or, as some have speculated, because they are expecting the protests to wither anyway with the onset of cold weather. Officials are watching the encampments for health and safety problems but say that protesters exercising their rights to free speech and assembly will be allowed to stay as long as they are peaceful and law-abiding. “We’re accommodating a free speech event as part of normal business and we’re going to continue to enforce city rules,” said Aaron Pickus, a spokesman for the mayor of Seattle, where about 40 protesters are camping at City Hall. “They have the right to peacefully assemble. Ultimately what the mayor is doing is strike a balance.” Authorities have similarly taken a largely hands-off approach in Portland, Ore., where about 300 demonstrators are occupying two parks downtown; Memphis, Tenn., where the number of protesters near City Hall has ranged from about a dozen to about 100; and in Salt Lake City, where activists actually held a vigil outside police headquarters this week to thank the department for not using force against them. In the nation’s capital, U.S. Park Police distributed fliers this week at an encampment of more than 100 tents near
the White House. And while the fliers listed the park service regulations that protesters were violating, including a ban on camping, a park police spokesman said the notices should not be considered warnings. In the nation’s capital, U.S. Park Police distributed fliers this week at two encampments totaling more than 150 tents near the White House. And while the fliers listed the park service regulations that protesters were violating, including a ban on camping, a park police spokesman said the notices should not be considered warnings. In Providence, R.I., Public Safety Commissioner Steven Pare said the protesters will not be forcibly removed even after the Sunday afternoon deadline he set for them. He said he intends to seek their ouster by way of court action, something that could take several weeks. “When you see police having to quell disturbances with tear gas or other means, it’s not what the police want and it’s not what we want to see in our society,” Pare said. Similarly, in London, church and local government authorities are going to court to evict protesters camped outside St. Paul’s Cathedral — though officials acknowledged Friday it could take weeks or months to get an order to remove the tent city.
No anthrax vaccine being tested on children — for now By Randolph E. Schmid Associated Press
WASHINGTON — Should the anthrax vaccine be tested in children? It will be a while longer before the government decides. An advisory board said Friday that ethical issues need to be resolved — but if that can be accomplished the vaccine can be tested in children to be sure it’s safe and to learn
the proper dose in case it’s needed in a terrorist attack. Because of concerns that terrorists might use the potentially deadly bacteria, the government has stockpiled the vaccine. It has been widely tested on adults but never on children. The question is whether to do tests so doctors will know if children’s immune systems respond to the shots well enough to signal protection.
The children would not be exposed to anthrax. The National Biodefense Science Board said Friday a review board should look into the ethical issues of doing such tests in children. If that is completed successfully, the panel, said, the Department of Health and Human Services should develop a plan for a study of the vaccine in children. How to protect young people after an anthrax attack is
Report: Security improved in Afghanistan By Donna Cassata Associated Press
WASHINGTON — Despite improvements to security in Afghanistan, militants operating from safe havens in Pakistan and chronic problems with the Kabul government pose significant risks to a “durable, stable Afghanistan,” according to a Pentagon progress report released Friday. More than a decade since the Sept. 11 terror attacks and the start of the Afghan war, the U.S. and its allies have reversed violent trends in much of the country and the transition to Afghans taking charge of security has begun in seven key areas, including major cities such as Kabul and Herat. “Security gains during (the past six months) have provided a firm foundation for the transition of security responsibilities to the Afghan government” and its security forces, the report said. However, cross-border attacks have increased in recent months due to insurgents’ safe havens in Pakistan and the support they received from within its borders. “The insurgency remains resilient and, enabled by Pakistani safe havens, continues to contest” Afghan security forces throughout the country, especially in the east, ac-
cording to the semi-annual report sent to Congress. The report also identified chronic problems with the Afghan government, including widespread corruption, delays in reforms and political disputes, as obstacles to U.S. and coalition efforts to get Kabul to take over security for the country. The Unites States has some 100,000 troops in Afghanistan and plans to bring most forces home by the end of 2014. President Barack Obama announced this past summer that 10,000 troops will be redeployed by the end of the year. The 33,000 troops that Obama sent as a surge force will be out by the end of September 2012, leaving about 68,000 troops. “Transition remains on track with no demonstrated effort by the insurgency to target the process,” the report said. Overall, the report gives a more upbeat assessment of the military strategy and its future prospects. For the first time in several years, the report does not describe the progress in Afghanistan as “fragile and reversible” — an omission that a senior defense official said Friday was deliberate. Instead, the report focused on the continuing risk areas, such as the safe havens in
Pakistan and weak governing in Kabul. The defense official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not allowed to speak publically on the issue, said that U.S. and coalition forces will be turning more attention to the eastern border region. But the official could provide no details on what that would look like, or if it will mean a substantial shift in U.S. troops to the embattled region. The latest progress report — the last one was in April — strikes a more critical tone than previous Pentagon reports about Pakistan’s failure to crack down on safe havens for militants along the border with Afghanistan, arguing that these havens enable insurgents considered the greatest threat to American troops. The report said the relationship between Afghanistan and Pakistan had improved early on, but several events severely strained those ties. Most notably was the May 2 U.S. raid deep inside Pakistan that led to the death of al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden. Cross-border attacks diminished in August, but highprofile attacks in September, including the assault on the U.S. embassy in Kabul, were a significant setback.
Court in indirect talks with Gadhafi son AMSTERDAM (AP) — The International Criminal Court is in indirect negotiations with slain Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi’s son about his possible surrender for trial, the chief prosecutor said Friday. Luis Moreno-Ocampo told The Associated Press talks were being held through intermediaries, whom he did not identify, to assure Seif alIslam Gadhafi that he would receive a fair trial and that he could be helped to find a new country of residence if he were acquitted. He said he did not know exactly where Gadhafi is. The 39-year-old son of
Gadhafi was reported to be heading through the desert to Mali, where the former Libyan intelligence chief Abdullah al-Senoussi fled Wednesday. Gadhafi and al-Senoussi were indicted in June for unleashing a campaign of murder and torture to suppress the uprising against the Gadhafi regime that broke out in February. Conveying a sense of urgency, Moreno-Ocampo said he believed Gadhafi also was in touch with unidentified mercenaries offering to find him refuge in an African country that does not cooperate with the court. He mentioned Zimbabwe as a likely possibility, and
said the court was in contact with other countries to prevent Gadhafi’s escape by denying any plane carrying him permission to fly through its air space. “We are having informal conversations with Seif Gadhafi in order to see if he can be surrendered to the court,” Moreno-Ocampo said in a telephone call from The Hague. Gadhafi was pressing for clarifications about his fate should he be acquitted, and Moreno-Ocampo said he has made it clear to the fugitive that he could ask the judges to send him to a country other than Libya.
a challenging issue, said Dr. Nicole Lurie, a member of the board and assistant secretary for preparedness and response at the Public Health Service. “Protecting children still stands, for me, among the most important responsibilities that we have as a nation.” The board gives advice to the Department of Health and Human Services on preparations for chemical, biological and nuclear
events. Its vote was 12-1. There is no deadline for the government to decide whether to go along. And if it does agree, it’s not clear how much time it would take to find money for such research and get clearance from review boards at medical centers that would conduct studies. Another big question is whether parents would sign up their children to test a vaccine when there is no immediate
threat. It’s not possible to get anthrax from the vaccine, but there are side effects. In adults, shot-site soreness, muscle aches, fatigue and headache are the main ones, and rare but serious allergic reactions have been reported. Anthrax is among several potential bioterror weapons and is of special interest because it was used in letters sent to the media and others in 2001, claiming five lives and sickening 17.
BUSINESS AT A GLANCE
YouTube is making a bold step into original programming in an entertainment venture with some 100 content creators, from Madonna to The Wall Street Journal. The Google Inc.-owned video site said Friday that it’s launching more than 100 new video channels. The partners include an array of Hollywood production companies, celebrities and new media groups that will produce mainly niche-oriented videos. YouTube is shelling out $100 million to producers, according to people familiar with the matter, who spoke on condition of anonymity. The money is an advance on advertising money the videos will bring in.

Americans spending more with income almost flat By Christopher S. Rugaber and Martin Crutsinger Associated Press
WASHINGTON — Americans are making a little more money and spending a lot more. Under normal circumstances, that would be a troubling sign for the economy. But a closer look at some new government figures suggests another possibility: People are saving less money because they’re earning next to nothing in interest. Saving is already difficult because of more expensive gas and food. It’s even tougher because of the lower returns — the flip side of super-low interest rates that the Federal Reserve has kept in place since 2008 to help the economy. Critics say the Fed is punishing those who play by the rules — those careful enough to set aside money for savings or people who built up a nest egg and are living on fixed incomes that depend on interest. Americans spent 0.6 percent more in September, three times the increase from the previous month, the government said Friday. Spending was especially strong on durable goods — things like cars, appliances and electronics. At the same time, what they earned was mostly flat. Pay increased 0.3 percent, and overall income just 0.1 percent. After deducting
taxes and adjusting for inflation, income fell for a third straight month. So to make up the difference, many have cut back on savings. The savings rate fell to its lowest level since December 2007, the first month of the recession — and right about the time the Fed started its dramatic series of interest-rate cuts. Considering how little you can get for parking your money at a bank, it hasn’t been a tough choice. “Consumers have hit a level of saturation in their savings,” said Marshal Cohen, chief industry analyst with market research firm The NPD Group. “The propensity is to spend.” The annual yield on sixmonth certificates of deposit was unchanged this week at 0.23 percent, according to Bankrate.com. Five years ago, it was 3.62 percent. If you put your money in the six-month CD today, you’d make about enough to buy a burger. Paul Ashworth, chief U.S. economist at Capital Economics, said the trend could mean more spending by Americans. But it will take robust personal spending — along with improvement in the depressed housing market — to get the economy going again. Ashworth said his firm is not too concerned with the decline in savings because it partly represents “a sharp decline in debt servicing costs.”

Tunisia seeks to blend Islam, democracy TUNIS, TUNISIA — This small Mediterranean country with its educated populace and large middle class has become the test case for whether democracy and Islam can mix. The first elections of the Arab Spring were held here last Sunday, with a turnout of more than 80 percent. Voters patiently queued for hours to cast ballots freely. The big winner was the moderate Islamist party called Ennahda. Islamists also are expected to win the most seats in Egypt’s elections and to play a key role in Libya’s transition. But Ennahda leaders take far more moderate positions than Islamist parties in Egypt and other Arab countries. Last week, I interviewed Ennahda’s two top leaders — founder Rashid Ghannouchi and the party secretarygeneral, Hamadi Jebali. They told me they would respect democratic pluralism and women’s rights. That remains to be proved, and many secular Tunisians are worried. Yet Ennahda has a unique chance to prove Islamic values can mesh with democracy at a time when reactionary Islamist forces are rising in the region. If this mix can’t work in Tunisia, it won’t work anywhere else in the Arab world. The gray-haired Ghannouchi, 70, has mellowed since he founded an earlier version of Ennahda in the 1980s, when some of its members were accused of violence. He fled to exile in London after Tunisia’s former ruler arrested thousands of Islamists, and became a well-known Islamic thinker who endorsed political pluralism. Jebali spent 16.5 years in prison, including 10 in solitary.
If this mix can’t work in Tunisia, it won’t work anywhere else in the Arab world.”
Today, Jebali is the political organizer of Ennahda, and Ghannouchi the philosopher who returned home after the Tunisian revolution. “We don’t see a contradiction between religion and politics,” Ghannouchi says. He cites as a model the ruling party of Turkey, which endorses Islamic values but operates within a democratic system. Ghannouchi rejects the Islamic thinking of the Taliban and also dismisses the undemocratic system in Iran, where a supreme religious leader is above institutions and above the law. “I am for the separation of religious institutions and political institutions,” he says. Both men also contend that sharia (Islamic law) is a set of principles open to interpretation — not a body of immutable demands, as Islamic hard-liners contend. “We know there are some Muslims who do not believe in democracy or freedoms in society,” Jebali said. “We consider this a wrong interpretation. For us,
the authority in Islam is given to the people, and even the legislative power should come from the people.” Those principles, both men say, do not rule out full rights for women. They say there is no contradiction between sharia and Tunisia’s family-status law, the most liberal in the Arab world, which guarantees women equal rights with men, including the right to divorce and to have child custody. It also outlaws polygamy. Ghannouchi says: “I’ve confirmed my support for the family-status law a million times and will do it again.” He adds that Ennahda would seek equal salaries for men and women for the same job and would address sexual harassment in the workplace. Still, many secular women distrust his promises. But Ghannouchi says that if his party alienates them, Ennahda will lose the next election: “More than half the voters are women, so there is no hope for anyone to win without women’s votes.” Both political leaders appear to realize that they must take account of the particular characteristics of Tunisia — a Mediterranean society with close links to Europe and a high literacy rate. “Tunisians embrace their civilization, and enjoy the good life,” says Jebali. “They do not like extremes. They don’t like niqab (a nearly fullface veil) or long beards, but they don’t like semi-naked women.” Critics of Ennahda say the party will exert social pressure, if not legal means, to push more women to cover. And they contend that Ennahda hasn’t taken a strong enough stand against the hard-line Muslim salafists
who attacked a TV station for showing the animated film Persepolis, which showed a picture of God. They also fear the Islamists can count on funding from the Arab Gulf that enables them to distribute food and cash. Ghannouchi insists, “We don’t get one penny from any outside country.” He points out that he has been kicked out of Saudi Arabia, denied a visa to Iran, and is under death threat from al-Qaida. Yes, Ennahda clearly has lots of cash, but it can’t have bought all of its votes with money. In the new Middle East, many people will vote for Islamists as a reaction against political corruption, or — in Ennahda’s case — because its followers are known to have suffered under past regimes. Yet, having won a plurality of seats, Ennahda will now be judged by how it performs. The newly elected assembly is tasked with writing a constitution, and Ghannouchi has pledged to seek consensus with secular parties. He will have to restrain followers who are more hard-line than he, and take a stronger line against salafists who use violence. Everyone who has hoped in vain in the past for an Arab democracy to emerge should help Tunisians make their experiment work. They should also observe whether Ennahda lives up to its leaders’ pledges. “The Muslim world is thirsty for such a model,” Jebali says. The rest of the world is thirsty for such a model, too. — Trudy Rubin is a columnist and editorial-board member for the Philadelphia Inquirer.

Area school offcials and a Kansas University textbook author were YEARS keeping their eyes AGO on the appeal of a IN 1986 successful lawsuit by Christian fundamentalists in Tennessee against their local school district. A federal judge had ruled that the seven families who objected to the use of certain books in the Hawkins County, Tenn., schools were entitled to damages because the use of a Holt, Rinehart, Winston reading series violated their First Amendment rights.

On a recent night with temperatures averaging YEARS 49 to 52 degrees, AGO unidentified bar paIN 1971 trons walking in the 100 block of West Seventh had heard a baby crying from the back seat of a parked car. Passing by the car again three hours later, they saw the baby, apparently still unattended and called the police. Responders used a coat hanger to unlock the car’s door and took the baby to the police station, where juvenile officers took him to a foster home about midnight. A woman identifying herself as the mother had contacted the Douglas County Juvenile Court about 10:30 the following morning, but as of the time of the newspaper report, the baby boy remained in foster care.

graphic Lawrence wants to attract, and moved here about a year ago. I talk a lot, probably annoyingly, about the benefits of living in a university town, the friendliness of the people, the beauty of lakes, trees and flowers but what moves my family and friends in Colorado and Missouri to awed admiration is the trash pickup situation. “You mean,” they say in hushed tones “that you just put stuff out by the curb and they take it? No bag limit, no fines, no nasty little notes on trash that doesn’t qualify?” When I assure them that there is none of that, they almost weep. Please, please don’t change it.

Enforcement gap To the editor: The Orchards Golf Course, which I own, has been repeatedly vandalized throughout the summer. On Oct. 3 and 4, several people witnessed two young men and a lady doing damage to the greens and bathroom on the course. Subsequently, another person spoke to one of the young men and stated that the young man admitted vandalizing the golf course. This person also identified the vandal’s residence.

culture of a town like Lawrence?” The Christian faith transforms culture. The truth about Jesus’ message and ministry is open to all who will listen and receive. “Come to me all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.” (Matthew 11:28). His offer is open to all: rich, poor, powerful and powerless. His ministries and purposes were to seek and save the lost, whether they were the mainstream or marginal of society. The liberation Jesus still offers today is freedom from sin that binds, condemns and separates us from God. While Jesus spoke out against the powerful religious leaders of his day who were oppressors seeking to protect their position, he himself operated without political agenda. Jesus was not bound by stereotypes. Have courage to believe the truth about who Jesus really is, rather than placing your faith in a politically correct ideology. His death, burial and resurrection fulfilled God’s mercy and justice at the cross. Have courage to accept the truth that offers true liberation. Have courage to accept the truth of the gospel of Jesus Christ. Don’t settle instead for a political or To the editor: cultural agenda.

The police promptly responded and three patrolmen took separate reports. The police officers were courteous and professional. However, despite knowing the identity and residence of one of the vandals there has not been any follow-up investigation. I have contacted the city prosecutor and the district attorney’s office and was told they cannot proceed until the police submit the case. I do not know police procedures, but obviously there is a disconnect between the reporting officers and the subsequent investigation. The vandalism has cost me thousands of dollars. My property taxes are increasing, in part, to pay for additional police officers. After 20 days it seems the police should have at least interviewed the identified vandal and made a courtesy call to me. Perhaps the police believe, as they did with the Occupy Lawrence protesters, that some laws should not be enforced. Ed White, Lawrence

It was donated by the Greensburg business that originally housed it. “There are a few dents from the tornado,” Crawley said, “but it still works great — it froze the lines when we first turned it on.” The Kiowa County Library has rebuilt its inventory since it lost most of its books during the tornado.

Kiowa County Historical Museum opening set GREENSBURG (AP) — The opening of the Kiowa County Historical Museum next week will be another milestone for Greensburg as it continues to rebuild from a May 2007 tornado that virtually destroyed the town. The museum will open Tuesday in the Commons Building, which will also house the Kiowa County Library and a new business called the Media Center, The Dodge City Daily Globe reported. The Kiowa County Historical Society began planning the museum soon after the tornado, which wiped out most of the museum’s prior collection, said Jim Crawley, director of the new museum. The museum’s exhibits will discuss the buffalo that once roamed the plains, the coming of stagecoaches and railroads and the settling of towns in Kiowa County. It will showcase information and artifacts from Greens-

Mountaineers bolting Big East for Big 12 By Ralph D. Russo AP College Football Writer
The Big 12 welcomed West Virginia from the Big East and bid goodbye to Missouri before the Tigers even had a chance to finalize their move to the Southeastern Conference. Now that the poaching of the Big East seems to be over, the beleaguered league is not backing down. It has been busy courting six schools and says it was braced for the latest loss. And despite what the Big 12 says, the Big East plans to keep West Virginia for two more years — just as it has vowed to keep Pittsburgh and Syracuse away from the Atlantic Coast Conference until 2014. The latest round of conference realignment appears to be winding down, but tug-o-war over who goes where when likely will take awhile to sort out. The Big 12 completed its work Friday by adding West Virginia to become its easternmost member, joining Texas, Texas Tech, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Kansas, Kansas State, Baylor, TCU and Iowa State. The Big 12 said it expects to have 10 schools for the 2012-13 season, listing West Virginia but not Missouri, which is expected to complete its move to the SEC any day now. “I wouldn’t say that there won’t be further expansion,” interim Big 12 Commissioner Chuck Neinas said on a conference call Friday evening. “But our mission was ... to move forward with 10 teams at this point. That doesn’t mean that there wouldn’t be further consideration. But right now, we’ve got our house in order. We’ve got everybody signed up. We’re looking forward to a very aggressive conference.” Ames, Iowa, is the closest Big 12 campus to Morgantown, W.Va., at 870 miles away, but that hardly matters. The Mountaineers bring a football program that has consistently been ranked in the Top 25 in recent years, and that’s what counts most when it comes time to sell TV rights. In April, the conference signed a 13-year TV deal with Fox worth $1.17 billion that kicks in next year and was based upon the league having 10 members. The Big 12 leaders voted to add West Virginia, rather than closer Big East rival Louisville, on Friday morning. “The addition of West Virginia, while expanding the reach of the Big 12, brings an impressive institution with esteemed academics and a proud athletic tradition into the Conference. This is another step in building

Shorthanded LHS ends Firebirds’ season By Corey Thibodeaux email@example.com
Lawrence High coach Dirk Wedd went to junior running back Tyrone Jenkins Saturday morning to give him a new challenge. Someone had to replace the three quarterbacks who had gone down for the Lions the past couple of weeks. That someone was Jenkins. “Yes sir,” Jenkins said to his coach. “I can do it.” With a patchwork offense and slightly depleted defense, Jenkins helped lead LHS to a 20-0 victory against Free State High on Friday night.
It came on a night Olathe Northwest and Olathe North’s game had huge implications for the Lawrence teams’ playoff hopes. If O-North won, then all LHS had to do was win at FSHS. If ONorthwest won, the Lions had to win by at least eight points. ONorthwest blew out O-North, 5628. The Lions beat the eight-point spread and knocked the Firebirds out of playoff contention. “They’re resilient,” Wedd said of his players. “The way they handle adversity is amazing.” LHS (6-3) scored on its first possession, a 12-play, 44-yard drive, with a three-yard run by
times for 122 yards. And he completed three of four passes. There was one play that went more than 25 yards. Jenkins hooked up with Erick Mayo for a 68-yard touchdown, pushing the score to a 17-0 lead with a little more than 5:00 to go in the first half. At that point, the eight-point lead was looking safe. “We weren’t going to let up until the fourth quarter,” Mayo said. Mayo also had two interceptions, one each off of Kyle McFarland and Joe Dineen. The Firebird quarterbacks had Lions draped Please see LHS, page 3B

KU’s take Kansas University officials hailed the addition of WVU. “We’re excited to welcome West Virginia University,” KU athletic director Sheahon Zenger said. “West Virginia is a proud, flagship university with a successful athletics program led by an outstanding individual, Oliver Luck. We look forward to competing against the Mountaineers.” “KU supports the addition of West Virginia University to join the Big 12 Conference,” added KU Chancellor Bernadette Gray-Little said. “With their highly competitive teams and loyal fan base, the Mountaineers make an outstanding addition to the Big 12 and Jayhawks look forward to competing against them.”
Jenkins. FSHS (6-3) didn’t have a first down when Lawrence’s Anthony Rosen kicked a 30-yard field goal in the second quarter. Surely, FSHS was going to make a run and stop LHS’s unexciting offense. The Firebirds did neither. The Lions’ offense was nothing like the open and explosive juggernaut that it has been for the majority of the season. Instead, Wedd relied heavily on his running backs and played more tightend formations so Jenkins could do most of the pounding from the quarterback position. There weren’t many explosive plays, but the plan worked. He rushed 37

ST. LOUIS CATCHER YADIER MOLINA LEAPS in the arms of Jason Motte after Texas’ David Murphy flies out to end Game 7 of the World Series. The Cards won the Series with a 6-2 victory Friday in St. Louis.
ST. LOUIS (AP) — Pushed to the brink, the St. Louis Cardinals saved themselves. A frantic rush to reach the postseason on the final day. A nifty pair of comebacks in the playoffs. Two desperate rallies in Game 6. Turns out these Cardinals were merely gearing up for a gigantic celebration. The Cardinals won a remarkable World Series they weren’t even supposed to reach, beating the Texas Rangers, 6-2, in Game 7 on Friday night with another key hit by hometown star David Freese and six gutty innings from Chris Carpenter. “This whole ride, this team deserves this,” said Freese, who added the Series MVP award to
his trophy as the NL championship MVP. “This organization is top notch. ... This is definitely a dream come true. This is why you keep battling. ... I’m so glad to be a part of this.” A day after an epic Game 6 that saw them twice within one strike of elimination before winning 10-9 in the 11th inning, the Cardinals captured their 11th World Series crown. And following a whole fall on the edge, including a surge from 10 1/2 games down in the wildcard race, Tony La Russa’s team didn’t dare mess with Texas, or any more drama in baseball’s first World Series Game 7 since the Angels beat Giants in 2002. Freese’s two-run double tied
it in the first and good-luck charm Allen Craig hit a goahead homer in the third. Picked by La Russa earlier in the day to start on short rest, Carpenter and the tireless St. Louis bullpen closed it out. “I wish everybody in the country could get to know these guys,” Craig said. “It’s unbelievable. I’m just glad to be a part of it.” No Rally Squirrel needed on this night, either. Fireworks and confetti rang out at Busch Stadium when Jason Motte retired David Murphy on a fly ball to end it. “We just kept playing,” Cardinals star Lance Berkman said.

No-vember: NBA cuts month of games NEW YORK (AP) â€” As NBA players and owners wait to see who will blink first, fans are stuck staring at a blank calendar. NBA Commissioner David Stern canceled the rest of the November games Friday, saying there will not be a full NBA season â€œunder any circumstances.â€? The move came about after labor negotiations broke down again when both sides refused to budge on how to split the leagueâ€™s revenues, the same issue that derailed talks last week. Now, a full month of NBA games have been canceled, and Stern said thereâ€™s no way of getting them back. â€œWe held out that joint hope together, but in light of the breakdown of talks, there will not be a full NBA season under any circumstances,â€? he said. â€œItâ€™s not practical, possible or prudent to have a full season now,â€? added Stern, who previously canceled the first two weeks of the season.
And he repeated his warnings that the proposals might now get even harsher as the league tries to make up the hundreds of millions of dollars that will be lost as the lockout drags on. â€œWeâ€™re going to have to recalculate how bad the damage is,â€? Stern said. â€œThe next offer will reflect the extraordinary losses that are piling up now.â€? Just a day earlier, Stern had said he would consider it a failure if the sides didnâ€™t reach a Stern deal in the next few days and vowed they would take â€œone heck of a shotâ€? to get it done. Instead, negotiations broke off again over the division of basketball-related income, just as they did last Thursday. Union executive director Billy Hunter said the league again insisted it had to be
UNC No.1 in preseason hoops poll
No further talks have been scheduled. There was a sense of optimism entering the day after progress was made on salary cap issues during about 24 hours of talks over the previous two days. Then the sides brought the revenue split back into the discussion Friday and promptly got stuck on both issues. Union president Fisher said it was difficult to say why talks broke down, or when they would start up again. There was some good news. Deputy Commissioner Adam Silver said there was essentially a â€œtentative agreementâ€? on most system issues, with Stern rattling off some of them: Owners agreed to keep the midlevel exception starting at $5 million a year; and contract lengths would be five years for players staying with their teams and four when leaving for another. â€œAnd then we hit a wall,â€? Stern said.
NFL fan popularizes spontaneous â€˜Tebowingâ€™ DENVER â€” Tim Tebow inspired a phenomenon when he dropped to a knee and began praying as his teammates wildly celebrated all around him after an improbable overtime win in Miami last weekend. That was simply Tebow â€œTebowing,â€? a phrase coined by a fan sitting in a bar in New York and watching the popular yet polarizing quarterback rally the Denver Broncos. Jared Kleinstein was mesmerized by Tebowâ€™s peaceful demeanor kneeling on the turf amid all the chaos that ensued. He launched a website in which fans could submit photos of themselves â€œTebowing,â€? which means getting down on a knee and praying, even if everyone else around you is doing something completely different. The trend is picking up steam. Kleinstein has received quite a collection of photos. There are fans striking the Tebow prayer pose next to statues, in bowling alleys, on boats and while waiting in line for tacos. Never did Kleinstein envision this venture taking off so quickly. Kleinstein started the website earlier this week after purchasing the domain name â€” Tebowing.com â€” for $10. Almost overnight, it caught on through social media. He went from an audience of 785 to nearly 390,000 in just a few days. But Kleinstein wanted to make one thing clear: The undertaking isnâ€™t meant to mock Tebow or poke fun at his religious beliefs, just show support. On Friday after practice, Tebow said he appreciated the spirit of the website and was awed by how fast it took off. Even if it might not be completely original. After all, dropping to a knee and praying after a game has been around for, well, quite a while. â€œIâ€™ve taken a knee many times on late field goals or those types of things in my football career,â€? Broncos coach John Fox said. â€œNot taking anything away from Tim and his outstanding popularity.â€?
Bills resign QB Fitzpatrick ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. â€” Ryan Fitzpatrick signed a 6-year, $59 million contract on Friday that secures him as the 4-2 Buffalo Billsâ€™ franchise quarterback. The one-time journeyman, 2005 seventhround draft pick and Harvard graduate has formally arrived as a bona fide NFL starter after being rewarded with what could potentially become the most lucrative contract in team history.

Cal coach heals from cancer LOS ANGELES â€” California menâ€™s basketball coach Mike Montgomery said Friday he was diagnosed with bladder cancer and had surgery last week that has left him cancer-free. Montgomery made the surprise announcement at Pac-12 media day in Los Angeles after first informing his fellow coaches. â€œI went from having high-grade bladder cancer to being totally cancer-free at this juncture,â€? he said. Montgomery, 64, said he will return fulltime to running the 24th-ranked Golden Bearsâ€™ program on Monday â€œmuch to the playersâ€™ chagrin.â€?
No. 1 UNC takes the court CHAPEL HILL, N.C. â€” Tyler Zeller scored 18 points to help No. 1 North Carolina beat North Carolina-Pembroke 100-58 in an exhibition Friday night. Preseason Atlantic Coast Conference player of the year Harrison Barnes had 13 points, though he didnâ€™t manage a field goal until the 14:35 mark of the second half and made just two of eight shots.
UConn center breaks nose STORRS, CONN. â€” Connecticut freshman center Andre Drummond broke his nose and suffered a mild concussion in practice Friday. The school said the 6-foot-10 Drummond would be fitted for a mask, which he likely would wear for the first two months of the basketball season.

The Associated Press
North Carolina broke a tie with its fiercest rival and moved into one with one of college basketballâ€™s most storied programs. The Tar Heels, who return all five starters from the team that reached the regional finals last season, were the runaway No. 1 in The Associated Pressâ€™ menâ€™s preseason Top 25 on Friday. It is the eighth time they have received that honor since the preseason poll started in 1961-62. That breaks a tie with Duke, North Carolinaâ€™s Tobacco Road rival, and moves them into a tie with UCLA, the program that dominated the sport unlike any other under coach John Wooden. North Carolina received all but three of the No. 1 votes cast by the 65-member national media poll, finishing well ahead of Kentucky, which eliminated the Tar Heels last season one step from the Final Four. With the frontcourt of Harrison Barnes, John Henson and Tyler Zeller all passing up the chance to enter the NBA draft and point guard Kendall Marshall having a chance to run the team for the whole season instead of just the last 20 games, the Tar Heels have the personnel to start the season comfortably atop the poll. North Carolina has been the preseason No. 1 in three of the last five seasons. Ohio State, which got one first-place vote, was third and defending national champion Connecticut, which received the other two No. 1 votes, was fourth. Kentucky has starters Terrence Jones and Darius Miller back to lead yet another outstanding recruiting class by coach John Calipari. Ohio State has All-America Jared Sullinger and senior guard William Buford back, while Connecticut has to find a way to replace All-America Kemba Walker, the all-everything guard who carried the Huskies through their 11-game winning streak to the national championship. Donâ€™t feel too bad for Connecticut coach Jim Calhoun as freshman Andre Drummond will give the Huskies a presence under the basket. Syracuse, Duke, Vanderbilt, Florida, Louisville and Pittsburgh rounded out the top 10. Memphis was 11th followed by Baylor, Kansas, Xavier, Wisconsin, Arizona, UCLA, Michigan, Alabama and Texas A&M. The last five teams were Cincinnati, Marquette, Gonzaga, California and Missouri. Fourteen of the teams in the preseason poll were ranked in last seasonâ€™s final poll. Ohio State was No. 1 entering the NCAA tournament and the Buckeyes lost to Kentucky in the regional semifinals. Duke was No. 1 in the 2010-11 preseason poll and went on to finish third in the final poll before losing to Arizona in the regional semifinals. Vanderbilt had the longest stretch of not being in the preseason Top 25. The Commodores were last in the rankings in 199394. The Big East has six ranked teams, two more than the Big 12 and Southeastern Conference, while the Big Ten and Pac12 had three each. Even with all the offcourt doings in the Big East â€” Syracuse and Pittsburgh leaving, TCU never really showing up and some others ready to head elsewhere â€” the conference that set the record for teams in an NCAA tournament last season is going to be tough again. Duke has the longest current streak of being ranked at 78 polls, a run that started with the preseason poll in 2007-08. Kansas is next with 46, a streak that began on Feb. 2, 2009.
split 50-50, while Stern said Hunter just walked out, rather than discuss going below 52 percent. Owners are insistent on a 50-50 split, while players last formally proposed they get 52.5 percent, leaving them about $100 million apart annually. Players were guaranteed 57 percent in the previous collective bargaining agreement. â€œDerek (Fisher) and I made it clear that we could not take the 50-50 deal to our membership. Not with all the concessions that we granted,â€? Hunter said. â€œWe said we got to have some dollars.â€? Instead, theyâ€™ll now be out roughly $350 million, the losses Hunter previously projected for each month the players were locked out. He believed a full season could be played if a deal were made this weekend, but Stern emphatically ruled out any hope of that now. â€œThese are not punitive announcements; these are calendar generated announcements,â€? Stern said.

LAWRENCE HIGH’S ERICK MAYO (27) INTERCEPTS A PASS intended for Free State’s Blake Winslow. The Lions beat the Firebirds, 20-0, Friday at FSHS.
Firebirds left smarting ————
Lions ‘came out here ready to play. We weren’t’ By Benton Smith email@example.com
With an injury-plagued Lawrence High football team coming across town Friday to Free State, the Firebirds were licking their collective chops and feeling like a win, a district championship and a trip to the playoffs all would be theirs by the end of the night. It turned out those premature inklings, though, could not have been further from the truth. The Lions clobbered FSHS with a harsh dose of reality, 20-0, which knocked their rivals out of playoff contention and ended the Free State season. Firebirds in disbelief looked skyward, bleary-eyed, as they left FSHS Stadium. Senior wide receiver Ryan Patterson said his team didn’t match Lawrence in a basic facet of the game. “They came out here ready to play. We weren’t,” Patterson said after catching three of his team’s four pass completions on an ugly night for the offense. “That’s really the end of the discussion about the whole situation.” The 5-foot-9, 155-pound wideout said the Firebirds (6-3 overall, 2-1 district) cost themselves a win and a district title by overlooking their rivals, who were without their top three quarterbacks, especially first-stringer Brad Strauss. Patterson said because Strauss was out, too many FSHS players thought “we would come out here and just run them off the field.” Instead, they got the ball run down their throats, courtesy of Lawrence junior Tyrone Jenkins, a running back in quarterback’s clothing for the shorthanded Lions (6-3, 2-1). In what amounted to a night full of wildcat formations for LHS, Jenkins carried the ball a whopping 37 times for 122 yards. The fillin QB ran for a touchdown and even found teammate Erick Mayo wide-open for a 68-yard passing TD that put Lawrence ahead, 17-0, with 5:19 left in the first half. Free State coach Bob Lish-

We were supposed to have a guy in that deep third, and I don’t know where he went. He wasn’t there. And they exploited it and made the play.” In the meantime, Free State’s offense was sputtering. With junior quarterback Kyle McFarland constantly getting hit, and often taken down, in the backfield, the Firebirds managed just eight yards from scrimmage in the first half. They earned just one first down and one complete pass. McFarland threw six incompletions, one of which was a Mayo interception. Things didn’t improve in the second half, either. McFarland ran the ball three straight times on the first FSHS series of the second half, a three-and-out. After the Free State defense forced a punt, McFarland was brought down for a loss on three straight plays and lost a fumble on the last of those.

on them almost every dropback, with sophomore Drew Green and juniors Kharon Brown and Asaph Jewson having huge games. The defense stifled the Firebirds, holding a team that averages almost 24 points per game to nothing. Mayo wasn’t shocked. “We’ve been a good defense all year,” he said. “The coaches put us in a great situation to win the game. We just went out and executed it tonight.” The Lions only had two close calls, the first coming late in the third quarter. LHS junior Kharon Brown recovered a fumble by FSHS and got it just inside the Firebird two-yard line. But a situation that should have yielded points turned into a fumble the other way. The second scare happened early in the fourth
quarter when the Firebirds got their offense going, getting yards in chunks of 19, 15 and 9. They drove to the LHS 37-yard line and stalled. Rosen tacked on a 29-yard field goal the next Lion possession, and the Lions secured a bid to the state playoffs. It seemed the only people not stunned at the outcome of this game were the players and coaches. The injuries to junior quarterback Brad Strauss, senior running back Charles Jackson, senior center Brady Murrish, junior receiver/ quarterback Drake Hofer and senior linebacker Jake Vinoverski for a few games, among others, were daunting. But as Wedd said before the game, the Lions were going to figure something out. Except no one was expecting this. “You don’t sleep much,” Wedd said about dealing with injuries, “but we knew what we had, and we had a lot of confidence in our kids.”
At that point, with McFarland looking nothing like himself, Lisher pulled the junior who had led FSHS to six wins in the previous seven weeks for sophomore Joe Dineen. The coach said McFarland had twisted a leg (Lisher wasn’t sure which) earlier in the game, and the result was a less-than-healthy quarterback. “He was trying to play through some pain. Sometimes you’ve got to switch things up,” Lisher said after turning to Dineen in the final minute of the third quarter. Lisher said he didn’t want to take McFarland out, but he had little choice. “He wouldn’t say he was hurt, but you could tell he was limping. You could tell he was struggling,” Lisher said. “We had to try something else.” Things weren’t much easier for Dineen, especially with LHS up 17 points. Though he was able to complete three passes and pick up a teambest 29 rushing yards on a woeful night for the home team, the Firebirds couldn’t mount anything resembling a comeback. Even though FSHS could have won a district champi-

onship with a win, and instead had its season cut short by its rival, Lisher said he wasn’t shocked by the outcome. “Lawrence High’s a great football team. You’ve got to give them credit,” Lisher said. “They came out and executed very, very well on both sides of the football.” It was a tough night for all involved in the Free State locker room, senior running back Shawn Knighton said. “Everybody’s just emotional right now,” he said. “It’s a big loss for us. We thought we were gonna come out ready to go. I guess we just wasn’t focused and ready to play.” Patterson agreed and couldn’t get past the notion the Firebirds thought all they had to do was show up and win. “They thought it was gonna be a breeze, which was not happening at all,” he said. Lisher, though disappointed, said Lawrence deserved the victory, its first over FSHS since 2005. “Nobody wants the season to end, obviously.

Practice leaves Brown wanting Tom Keegan firstname.lastname@example.org
Kansas overrated at No. 13 As favorites, underdogs and somewhere in between, Kansas University’s basketball team has won at least a share of the Big 12 title seven seasons in a row. The Jayhawks have done it with young teams and experienced ones, with shotblockers and without them. KU has entered the NCAA Tournament as a No. 1 seed in four of the past five seasons, completely turning over the roster midway through that stretch. The quick reloading jobs done by Bill Self and his coaching staff have become so automatic that the masses assume the pattern will continue forever. This much is evident from the coaches and sportswriters who voted in the preseason college basketball poll. The Associated Press poll released Friday had Kansas in the same position as the ESPN/USA Today coaches poll, at No. 13. I ranked KU 18th on my ballot and felt a little queasy after hitting the send button. I felt as if I had overrated a team that has just eight players who arrived at school on a basketball scholarship. One of them is freshman Merv Lindsay, who was one of the school’s more lightly recruited players in recent years. Another freshman is a promising role player, point guard Naadir Tharpe. Another, Loyola Marymount transfer Kevin Young, is a 6-foot8 junior. He’ll be counted on to play inside for a coach who demands extremely physical play from his post players. Young weighs 185 pounds, and although he has a lot of bounce, he never has been described as a banger. Competing with that trio for minutes off the bench are former walk-ons Conner Teahan, a fifth-year senior, and Lamar University transfer Justin Wesley, a sophomore. Not that a team ranked 13th in the country should stand up to a national champion in any comparison, but just for fun, consider that Sherron Collins, Sasha Kaun and Cole Aldrich came off the bench four years ago. Last season, Thomas Robinson, Josh Selby, Elijah Johnson, Travis Releford and Jeff Withey were available in reserve. The thin bench comes in a year in which reserves could be needed more than in most. Robinson, a relentless, emotional competitor, forever is aggressive, which means playing to avoid things doesn’t come naturally to him, even it’s getting whistled for fouls he’s trying to avoid. Withey, who projects as a starter, blocks shots, but can get himself into foul trouble as well. Tyshawn Taylor, Johnson and Releford make a long, quick, bouncy perimeter trio, one that can compete with any group of starting guards in the nation. But Releford could have to spend some of his time in the post. Even if Kansas can avoid long-term injuries, a ranking as high as 13th, especially this early, seems a stretch, an unfair expectation of a team that, compared to most, lacks experience, size and outside shooting. If freshmen Ben McLemore, a super athlete and a skilled long-range shooter, and Jamari Traylor, an explosive big-bodied forward on the raw side, had been cleared academically, a No. 13 ranking might fit. But nobody will have right to feel as if Kansas fell short of realistic expectations if the Jayhawks finish ranked worse than 13th.

Kansas University’s basketball team practiced for a little over two hours Friday afternoon in Allen Fieldhouse. The spirited session was much shorter than most of those conducted by former KU coach Larry Brown from 1984 to ’88. “Today they get 20 hours of practice a week,” Hall of Famer Brown told several hundred high school, smallcollege and junior-college coaches during a 90-minute presentation at Bill Self’s KU coaches clinic. “When I was here, we went a long time. We went until we got it right. “Danny said I couldn’t operate under these rules today,” Brown added with a laugh. He was referring to KU assistant coach Danny Manning, leader of Brown’s 1988 NCAA title team. Currently out of coaching after leaving the NBA’s Charlotte Bobcats last season, the 71-year-old Brown is a popular speaker on the camp circuit. “I go all over the country and watch others coach,”

KU soccer falls, 3-0 J-W Staff Reports
Oklahoma spoiled Kansas University’s soccer senior day, 3-0, on Friday at the Jayhawk Soccer Complex. Despite the loss, the Jayhawks earned the No. 7 seed at next week’s Big 12 championship and will face secondseeded Texas A&M at 8 p.m. Wednesday in San Antonio. Friday, OU improved to 7-12 overall, 2-6 in the Big 12 and dropped KU to 11-8 and 3-5. “Now we are in the postseason, so if we lose our season is over and there is no tomorrow,” Kansas coach Mark

Francis said. “Fortunately we have done enough up to today where we still get to play next week. I think the bottom line is we have to come out and play a lot better than what we did today. ” Kansas seniors Kelsey Clifton, Kortney Clifton and Jordyn Perdue were honored after the game. “Obviously it is pretty emotional, but it was a frustrating way to go out,” Perdue said. “It still does not take back from what we have accomplished so far this year because we are still in a good position to come out and win next week at Big 12’s.”
The Rangers, meanwhile, will spend the whole winter wondering how it all got away. Texas might dwell on it forever, in fact, at least until Nolan Ryan & Co. can reverse a World Series slide that started with last year’s five-game wipeout against San Francisco. Texas had not lost consecutive games since last August. These two defeats at Busch Stadium cost manager Ron Washington and the Rangers a chance to win their first title in the franchise’s 51year history. “I just told them they’re champions, which I believe,” Washington said. “Someone has to win, someone has to lose and the Cardinals did it. ... They were the better team. They are the world champions. All we can do is come back next year and commit ourselves to it, like they did this year.” The Cardinals won their first championship since 2006, and gave La Russa his third World Series title.
So, did he enjoy this exhilarating match-up? “Fun may not be the right word, but it’s fun now,” he said. The Cardinals were loose from the very beginning. “We were all in the clubhouse and we were a loose bunch of guys,” Motte said. “We were in there hanging out, dancing around, had music playing. We were all like that’s the way we win and that’s how we play the best and we came out we were able to do it today. It’s just amazing.” This marked the ninth straight time the home team had won Game 7 in the World Series. The wild-card Cardinals held that advantage over the AL West champions because the NL won the All-Star game — Texas could blame that on their own pitcher, C.J. Wilson, who

When Class 6A state cross country races begin this morning at Rim Rock Farm, a number of city high school runners will be looking to improve upon last year’s finish, while one team will do its best to chase down a state championship. Both Lawrence High and Free State will be represented in the girls and boys races on the familiar local course, and the Firebirds’ girls will be the easiest to spot, being the only city squad to qualify as a team. Free State’s Lynn Robinson, Molly McCord, Rosemary Newsome, Olivia Loney, Lauren Wethington, Bailey Sullivan and Ruthie Ozonoff helped FSHS take third place this past week at a regional and will have to contend with regional champions Maize, Olathe East, Shawnee Mission West, Derby and other highly rated programs, such as Shawnee Mission Northwest and Washburn Rural, when the girls race begins at 10 a.m. A senior, Robinson was the only current member of the FSHS girls to compete at state in 2010, and she finished 14th. A pair of Lawrence runners will be making return trips to state today. Junior Grace Morgan, who finished 30th last year, and senior Michala Ruder, 41st a year ago, both hope to move up in the rankings this time around, coach Brian Anderson said. When the 6A boys race begins at 11:30 a.m., just three city runners will be competing. The Free State boys, coached by Steve Heffernan, qualified two of their runners: Kain Anderson and Kamp Wiebe. Anderson placed second a week ago at the Shawnee Mission West regional and finished 10th at state last year. Wiebe finished 61st at state last season. The Lions’ Gavin Fischer will be the lone LHS runner in the boys race. The junior, making his second straight state run, was 55th in 2010. He finished seventh at the SMW regional, and Anderson said Fischer has shown improvement over the last few weeks leading up to the season finale.
a strong foundation for the future of the Big 12,” said Oklahoma State University President Burns Hargis, the chairman of the Big 12 board of directors. West Virginia is one of the founding members of the Big East’s football conference, created in 1991. Of the eight original members, only Rutgers remains. The Big East is trying to reconfigure itself as a 12-team football league and has been pitching itself to six schools, including Boise State. Now it will need seven to get to 12, though maybe not for a couple years. While the Big 12’s statement said West Virginia will begin competing in the 201213 athletic season, Big East Commissioner John Marinatto said the Mountaineers will be staying in the Big East for two more seasons. “West Virginia is fully aware that the Big East Conference is committed to enforcing the 27-month notification period for members who choose to leave the conference,” he said in a statement. West Virginia President James Clements said the university’s focus is on next summer’s conference transition, although there will be discussions with the Big East. “Our intent is clearly July 1 we’ll be a member of the Big 12,” Clements said. Syracuse and Pittsburgh announced last month they would join the ACC, and Marinatto has been adamant about saying the Big East plans to hold them for two more seasons. TCU was on its way to the Big East, set to join in 2012, before being diverted to the Big 12 earlier this month to take the place of Texas A&M, which was first to make the jump from the Big 12 to the SEC. The Big East can’t hold the Horned Frogs because they never started competing, but it does expect to receive a $5 million exit fee from them, Pittsburgh, Syracuse and West Virginia. Big East presidents two weeks ago agreed to raise the league’s exit fee to $10 million, but not until it had received commitments from one of its two main expansion targets — Air Force or Navy. West Virginia will not be on the hook for the doubled exit fee but clearly it will cost something for the Mountaineers to start playing in the Big 12 next season. Same goes for Pitt and Syracuse and the ACC. Clements said West Virginia wired half of the $5 million exit fee to the Big East on Friday. The other half will be sent when the school actually leaves. It appeared earlier in the week that the Big 12 had settled on West Virginia as its
had to come out (of school). A lot of coaches try to keep kids in school. “Danny could have come out (after his junior year in 1987). I couldn’t tell Danny what to do. I met with him and asked him what he wanted. He said, ‘I want to be No. 1 pick in the draft, win a national championship and graduate.’ I said, ‘If you come out (as junior), I think you’ll be the No. 1 pick. You can always earn your degree, but obviously you can’t win a championship.’ He came back and got all three.”
One more day: The coaches clinic continues today. Former New York Knicks and Houston Rockets coach Jeff Van Gundy will be featured speaker.
Self on Friday’s addition of West Virginia to the Big 12: “I think West Virginia is a great addition. Obviously, they bring a national name in multiple sports. And for me selfishly, I like the fact that coach Huggins (Bob, former Kansas State coach) is back in the league. I think he’ll definitely add some interest to our conference, which will be nothing but good for us.”
replacement for Missouri. But Louisville briefly reentered the picture, and the Mountaineers’ invitation to the Big 12 was put on hold. “We felt very confident and comfortable with our position where we were,” West Virginia Athletic Director Oliver Luck said. “I wouldn’t be completely honest if I didn’t say that we had a little bit of nervousness. We’re just glad it’s been finalized.” In the end the extra time didn’t pay off for the Cardinals. “I’m not certain how everything went down, but they fought a good battle and won,” Louisville Athletic Director Tom Jurich said. The Big 12, even before landing that big TV deal, distributed more revenue ($137 million) last year to its members than the Big East ($113), which will begin negotiating new TV deals next year. “It’s a great day to be a Mountaineer,” West Virginia Sen. Joe Manchin told The Associated Press. CBSSports.com first reported West Virginia’s move to the Big 12. The decision by the Big 12 caps a strange week of conference realignment that included West Virginia officials on Tuesday preparing a press release and planning a news conference to announce its conference switch, then being told later that day to put the brakes on those plans. Louisville made a late push for inclusion that reportedly involved a phone call from Kentucky Sen. Mitch McConnell, a Louisville alum, to Big 12 officials. “He lobbied for us, of course he did, as did many other people,” Jurich said. That set off Manchin, who threatened Wednesday a Senate investigation if it were found that another lawmaker had stood in the way of the Mountaineers’ move. Then late Thursday night, the SEC inadvertently posted on its website that Missouri was joining the league. The conference said no agreement has been reached with the school, but it was yet another sign it’s just a matter of time before the Tigers follow Texas A&M. Now, the focus shifts to the Big East and how it will rebuild. The plan is to add Boise State, Navy and Air Force as football-only members and SMU, Houston and Central Florida as all-sports members. “This move by West Virginia does not come as a surprise,” Marinatto said. “League officials, members of our conference and the candidate schools to whom we have been talking were aware of this possibility. We have taken West Virginia’s possible departure into account as we have moved forward with our realignment plans.” Temple had been considered before Big East officials settled on the Texas schools from Conference USA.

BIG 12 FOOTBALL
Can K-State upend OU again? ————
Wildcats would like to duplicate ’93 feat MANHATTAN (AP) — One of the biggest victories during Bill Snyder’s first tenure at Kansas State came in 1993, on a Saturday in late October, when Oklahoma came rolling into town. Snyder was in his fifth year of rebuilding arguably the worst program in the history of college football, and despite modest success, was still in search of a signature victory. The Sooners were ranked No. 13 at the time and had no reason to believe the incredible winning streak they’d had against the downtrodden Wildcats would end. But on a homecoming afternoon, Kansas State stunned them 21-7, and would go on to finish 9-2-1 and reach its second bowl game ever.
“It was one of the steps we felt, ‘Yeah, we kind of took another step,’” recalls Bob Stoops, who was an assistant to Snyder at the time and is now the head coach at Oklahoma. As fond as those memories are, Stoops doesn’t want Snyder to earn another programdefining victory today, when the 11th-ranked Sooners visit No. 10 Kansas State. Once again in late October, and once again on homecoming. “Playing coach Snyder and the whole group of guys there, it’s just complicated, because they’re very smart in how they play, and how they work their offense, how they work their defense,” Stoops said. “Playing against them, you have to be disciplined in what you do, so it’s challenging.”
Stoops knows firsthand how challenging. One of the best teams he’s ever had at Oklahoma came into the 2003 Big 12 title game as a heavy favorite to knock off Kansas State, which had struggled mightily early in the season. Ell Roberson, Darren Sproles and Co. instead handed the Sooners a humbling 35-7 defeat. Stoops acknowledged that he tried to model what he’s done at Oklahoma on Snyder’s handiwork. It’s only natural, he said, given how bad Kansas State was when they both arrived. “I don’t know that anybody can really look back, unless you were there at that time and could see how really poor and rotten it really was — there’s no describing
it,” Stoops said. “There really isn’t. It was horrendous. I hope no one there is mad. They know it. It was.” So why did Stoops sign on to such a job? “I was young and naive,” he said. “I’ve said this to coach before: I believe it helped me because I never thought for a minute we wouldn’t win. I had that much respect and faith in coach Snyder having worked with him all those years at Iowa. And all we did at Iowa was win. Coach Snyder with Hayden Fry, I was a young player on the team, hadn’t had a winning season in 18 years or so. And my third year, their third year there, we’re in the Rose Bowl and Big Ten champions. “So, I thought, ‘That’s what we do,’” Stoops said.
When Kansas has the ball Kansas rush offense vs. Texas rush defense Kansas, which ranks 31st in the country in rushing yards per game (188), seems to have narrowed its attack to a three-back approach that includes sophomore James Sims (485 yards, 7 touchdowns) and true freshmen Darrian Miller (320, 4) and Tony Pierson (285, 2). Red-shirt freshman Brandon Bourbon (162, 1) remains in the mix and seems to be ready whenever he’s called upon, but the bulk of the carries in recent weeks have gone to Sims and Miller, with Pierson receiving the change-of-pace touches. KU has 15 rushing TDs so far this year and has run 65 more rushing plays than its opponents this season and is averaging four yards per rush. Edge: Kansas. Kansas pass offense vs. Texas pass defense Quietly, KU quarterback Jordan Webb continues to perform well week after week. Aside from a couple of games early in conference play in which Webb tossed multiple interceptions, the sophomore QB has completed a high percentage (67.1) of his passes and taken advantage of the team’s solid rushing attack setting up the play-action pass. In seven games, Webb has thrown for 1,408 yards and 12 touchdowns. But Webb is facing a different animal this week. With their relentless blitzing and impressive team speed, the Longhorns have limited opposing QBs to 204 yards per game and have surrendered just eight TDs through the air. Edge: Texas.
When Texas has the ball
Texas pass offense vs. Kansas pass defense Although the Longhorns are working with two rather inexperienced quarterbacks, the UT passing game has been good enough to get the nod in this one. Texas is averaging 204 yards per game through the air, but may have found a lift in freshman QB David Ash. At 6-foot-3, 222 pounds, Ash has good size, good mobility and a good arm. He also has shown he can throw on the run. The Texas wide receivers, though young, also have aboveaverage size and speed. With that going for the Longhorns and Kansas’ 119th-ranked pass defense (319 ypg) going against the Jayhawks, UT should find success when it takes to the air. Edge: Texas.

OKLAHOMA STATE WIDE RECEIVER JUSTIN BLACKMON, RIGHT, catches an eight-yard touchdown pass as Missouri defensive back E.J. Gaines defends during their game last Saturday in Columbia, Mo.
Last week, Kansas gave up a kickoff return for a touchdown and damaged its own chances at a solid day in the return game with multiple penalties. The Longhorns simply have too much speed and too many weapons not to get the edge here. Experience also is on UT’s side as the kicking game is handled by senior punter and place kicker Justin Tucker. Edge: Texas.
Cowboys hope Blackmon KU’s defensive woes back today against Baylor weigh on coordinator
STILLWATER, OKLA. (AP) — Oklahoma State coach Mike Gundy had enough trouble convincing All-American receiver Justin Blackmon he wasn’t going to get to play again after taking a shot to the head. He’s hoping he won’t have the same problem a week later. Gundy said he believes Blackmon will be able to play for the third-ranked Cowboys against Baylor (4-2, 1-2 Big 12) today after he was held out of the second half of last week’s victory at Missouri. Oklahoma State (7-0, 4-0) will already be without another starting receiver after Hubert Anyiam suffered a seasonending foot injury a week ago. Gundy said Blackmon, the nation’s top receiver last season, probably could have played after he took a blow to the head and started experiencing headaches last week. He stopped short of saying whether Blackmon had a concussion. “Back when I played, they didn’t know what it was. They just put you back out there and you were OK one way or the other, which I think is wrong because nobody knew
what they were back then,” Gundy said. “Precautionary measures are taken now for all the right reasons.” Gundy said Blackmon was eager to get back into the Missouri game and he considered taking away the Biletnikoff Award winner’s helmet to make sure he didn’t go back in. “Whether we’d like to admit it or not, some of those players that are really, really good, they’re put together differently than normal people,” Gundy said. “They don’t think the same way. You just look at the history of the game. There’s very few of those really good players that are just normal like we are.” The Cowboys’ offense kept clicking without Blackmon and Anyiam, but the running game became the major focus. After attempting passes on 37 of 46 first-half plays — including 24 straight at one point — Oklahoma State tried more rushes than passes in the second half. Still, Gundy said he has confidence in Isaiah Anderson, Michael Harrison and other backups who’ll play a bigger role with Anyiam out
— and even more if Blackmon doesn’t play. “They’re guys that have been around our program and understand, and now they have to step up and make more plays,” Gundy said. “We’ve been fortunate here for the last few years that whenever we turn it over to them and say, ‘You’re the guy,’ that they’ve stepped up and played pretty well.” The Cowboys rank second in the nation in passing (387 ypg) and scoring (48.6 ppg) and third in total offense (549 ypg). They will be facing another attack that ranks near the top. Robert Griffin III is the Bowl Subdivision’s most efficient passer and he leads the way for a group that ranks just ahead of Oklahoma State in total offense (550 ypg) and sits sixth in scoring (44.3 ppg) and seventh in passing (341 ypg). For both teams, defense will be at a premium. “If they stop them, we’ve got to go score. If they don’t stop them, we’ve got to go score. So it doesn’t change our job on offense,” Griffin said. “We know we can put up points in a hurry and that’s what we’re looking to do.”
Tech aims to put OU win behind LUBBOCK, TEXAS (AP) — Texas Tech quarterback Seth Doege is hoping for a memory lapse when the 19th-ranked Red Raiders take the field tonight against Iowa State. He figures that’s the best way for his team to avoid a letdown after last week’s 4138 upset win at third-ranked Oklahoma. “We’ve got to forget about this one. It’s over. It was awesome,” said Doege, the nation’s leading passer who’s averaging about 372 yards per game. “If you want this one to continue to be special . . . then you’ve got to win the next one.”
KANSAS-TEXAS TALE OF THE TAPE
Texas rush offense vs. Kansas rush defense Behind a strong start to the season by true freshman Malcolm Brown, the Longhorns enter this one with the 37th-best rushing attack in the country. Brown is averaging five yards per carry and 86 yards per game. The 6-foot, 217-pound back has rushed for three TDs. Brown’s numbers likely would be higher if not for the presence of senior tailback Fozzy Whittaker, who also averages five yards per carry and has 220 yards and four TDs so far this season. UT’s top two tailbacks lead a unit that averages 182 yards per game. Edge: Texas.
Aggies recall loss to MU COLLEGE STATION, TEXAS (AP) — Texas A&M coach Mike Sherman was so unhappy with his team’s 30-9 loss to Missouri last season that he set fire to the game plan, play book and tape the Monday after the game. He wanted his team to forget about the loss and figured burning the remnants would be the best way to do it. The Aggies salvaged the season by winning the next six games. No. 16 Texas A&M (5-2, 3-1 Big 12) is preparing again to host Missouri (3-4, 1-3) today, and most of the Aggies said they don’t really think about that game. But Sherman hasn’t let it go. “I think we learned from the mistakes of the Missouri game and got better after that,” he said. “It definitely was a low point, but you can learn a lot about yourself and what you need to do from those low points if you look at yourself objectively. ... does it linger? It does for me, because we should have played better.” He hopes Texas A&M can extend its winning streak to four games against a team that many believe will soon be following the Aggies to the Southeastern Conference. After that Missouri game a year ago, Sherman split quarterback duties between Jerrod Johnson and Ryan Tannehill and then wound up benching Johnson for the rest of the season. Playing receiver against Missouri last season gives Tannehill a pretty good idea of what to expect today. “Last year we didn’t play well and they put it on us pretty good,” he said. “They are a good football team, an aggressive defense that will throw a lot of things at you. They’re not afraid to bring a lot of pressure.” The Tigers know that this team lead by Tannehill and entering the game is different than the one they faced last season. The senior has thrown for 15 touchdowns and 2,005 yards this season.
L AWRENCE J OURNAL -W ORLD
One memory still vivid around here is the Red Raiders’ 52-38 loss last year in Ames, when turnovers and a late onside kick backfired for an ISU touchdown. Despite not having played, Doege remembers that Iowa State “gave it to us pretty good.” Texas Tech coach Tommy Tuberville called the loss in Ames a “big disappointment.” His team started slow, falling behind Iowa State 24-0. “But they outplayed us,” Tuberville said. “Outcoached us, outplayed us, and it wasn’t a very good plane trip on the way home. But each year you
get another shot, and this year our shot is here.” The game for the Red Raiders (5-2, 2-2 Big 12) comes a week after they stunned the Sooners, who were riding a home win streak of 39 games. Doege threw for four touchdowns and ran for another. The win got Texas Tech back into the poll for the first time since the end of the 2009 season. The Red Raiders would be bowl eligible for a 19th straight year with a win tonight. “The quarterback was unbelievably accurate with his throws,” said Iowa State coach
Paul Rhoads, who was Tuberville’s defensive coordinator at Auburn in 2008. The win at OU “confirmed what we already know about this league. Every week you’re going to be challenged to play great football if you’re going to have an opportunity to win.” The Cyclones (3-4, 0-4) are desperate for a conference win and are pinning their hopes on Jared Barnett, a red-shirt freshman from Garland who’ll be making his first start at quarterback. He replaces Steele Jantz, a junior who crafted a few comefrom-behind wins earlier this year.

Kansas University football defensive coordinator Vic Shealy talked to reporters Wednesday with his teenage son, Will, a few steps behind him. Will is around because Vic decided it would be a good idea to bring him to KU’s football practice. The two hadn’t seen each other since Sunday night. This is Shealy’s life during the season as an assistant coach, though he isn’t complaining or asking for sympathy. He calls it “the grind,” and says every coach becomes accustomed to it. He points out the bags under his eyes and later talks about his schedule, which includes working 12 hours Sunday, followed by 18 on Monday, 16 on Tuesday and 16 on Wednesday. Asked about sleep, he jokingly asks what that word means. “If you play better,” Shealy says, “you get sleep.” The man who has taken as much criticism as anyone for Kansas’ struggles this year isn’t oblivious to what’s going on around him. Shealy knows there’s pressure to perform in the final five games of the year. He knows fans have grown tired of seeing the Jayhawks’ defense shredded for big plays while giving up 50.4 points per game. He knows there’s no victory in this business other than what the scoreboard says. But there’s a human side to this, too. Shealy takes his job home with him every night. And KU’s defensive lack of production this year has torn him up. “Probably the thing that is the toughest ... your players, you want to see them have success,” Shealy says. “So it cuts at you when they’re not being successful. It motivates you, but to a certain level, it eats away at you inside.” The huge blowouts have
been the most difficult for Shealy. The worst was KU’s 66-24 loss to Georgia Tech on Sept. 17. After the game, for the first time in 30-plus-year coaching career, Shealy left the game feeling like he stunk as a coach. “I will carry that scar for a long time,” Shealy says. The second-worst day for Shealy was Saturday, when KU was dominated, 59-21, by rival Kansas State at home. “You walk across that field or walk out of that press box after we’ve got our butt kicked, I tell you what now, that ain’t cool now,” Shealy says. “I hate to say it, but I didn’t get into it for that. I got in for the good days, and making a difference in the life of some kids along the way.” Shealy is working hard to get things righted. Just this week, he texted a friend at Pac-12 school to get his ideas on a certain defensive thought. He calls his father, Dal — who was head coach at Richmond for nearly a decade in the 1980s — about once a week, sometimes to talk football and other times to get his mind away from it. Shealy also engrosses himself in film of KU and its opponent because, as he says, the film never lies. “As good or bad as it is,” Shealy says, “it’s where you are.” Right now, it’s safe to say the Jayhawks aren’t where they’d like to be. KU has allowed 7.6 yards per play — a full half-yard more than the second-worst NCAA team, New Mexico. No matter how much pressure he gets from fans, boosters or the media, Shealy says he puts 10 times that pressure on himself. “When it comes right down to it, if (players) don’t play as well as they need to play to be successful, it’s my job to coach them better,” Shealy says. “And that’s the most frustrating thing, is I want them to be successful.”

‘What should Christians make of all the devil, demon and ghost talk associated with Halloween?’ ——————
Christians can participate without evil celebrations, activities The Rev. Barry Watts, r associate pastor, Lawrence Heights Christian Church, 2321 Peterson Road: I believe Christians can participate in Halloween, without becoming involved in the celebration and activities of the devil, demons and ghosts. In advertising our church’s Trunk or Treat event, we describe it as “a safe, family-friendly environment for children to explore themed vehicles and receive lots of cool treats! A great way to dress up and enjoy Halloween without celebrating demons, vampires and witches.” For my 3-yearold son, Halloween will be about dressing up in a fun costume and getting buckets full of candy. There will not be talk about the darker aspects of the holiday. However, when it comes
to the dark side of Halloween, Christians beware. If you are going to dance with the devil, don’t be surprised when he stomps on your foot and stabs you in the back. Ephesians 5:11-12 says, “Have nothing to do with the fruitless deeds of darkness, but rather expose them. It is shameful even to mention Watts what the disobedient do in secret.” Throughout the Old and New Testaments, witchcraft, sorcery and things of the occult are revealed as being in opposition to God. (Exodus 22:18; Leviticus 19:31; 20:6, 27; Acts
8:9-24; 13:6-11; 19:19) If participating in Halloween is going to cause you to dwell on “fruitless deeds of darkness,” then refrain. “If your eye causes you to sin, pluck it out. It is better for you to enter the kingdom of God with one eye than to have two eyes and be thrown into hell.” (Mark 9:47) If Halloween is going to be a stumbling block for your faith, causing you to sin, then have nothing to do with it. Whether you decide to participate or not, remember the words of the Apostle Paul, “Whatever happens, conduct yourselves in a manner worthy of the gospel of Christ.” (Philippians 1:27) — Send email to Barry Watts at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Send your questions about faith and spiritual issues for our religion columnists to religion@ ljworld.com.
The devil, demons, spirits are real and seriously dangerous The Rev. John McFarland, pastor, Christ Covenant Reformed Presbyterian Church, 2312 Harvard Road: “The secret things belong to the Lord, but things revealed belong to us & our children forever.” This truth drives Christians to be “people of the Book,” striving to understand (stand-under) what may be perceived only through the inspired scriptures. People the world over are fascinated with the spiritual realm. It is not “spiritual interest” which makes one a Christian. Ninety-five percent of all people are intrigued by things invisible. The Day of the Dead and Santeria are famous festivals reminding Christians to discipline ourselves under “scripture alone,” or we will syncretize truth with error. Halloween, more accept-
able in the modern West, is similarly dangerous ground where truth and falsehood mix. But Christian parents might make use of our culture’s fascination with zombies (today’s fashionably McFarland “undead”!) to consider what God says. The devil, demons and post-death human spirits are real. The Bible warns us not to seek communication with the dead (necromancy), not because it is silly but because it is seriously dangerous. When God brought Israel into the Promised Land, the familiar practices of tribes seeking a word from beyond
were forbidden. But the spiritual realm is not a level field, with good and bad spirits dueling over a universe up for grabs. The Bible from first to last depicts the Holy God in total control, determining how far unclean spirits may go in their efforts to steal, kill and destroy. They know they are doomed, as a terrified demon asked Jesus, “Have You come to torment us before the time?” Finally, it is important for children to know that this same Jesus is the one to whom they must go in faith to be delivered from fear of the devil and his juniors. Halloween is no laughing matter, but Christians who love truth himself will have the joy that remains. — Send email to John McFarland at JMMLawrence@aol.com.

Familiar face awaits KU By Matt Tait email@example.com
During the recruitment of Kansas University freshman JaCorey Shepherd, one man led the charge. His name is Darrell Wyatt, and, although KU’s former wide-receivers coach now works at the University of Texas, where KU will play at 6 tonight, he has hardly been forgotten. “When I found out he was leaving, he actually called me and told me, ‘Hey, just because I’m leaving doesn’t mean you have to change your mind,’” Shepherd said of a conversation between him and Wyatt last winter. “He didn’t want me to think he was the whole reason I was coming up here. Once he told me that, I was just like, ‘Cool, I’m gonna stick with my commitment.’” While Wyatt was credited as the lead recruiter for Shepherd, who ranks third in yards (249), fourth in receptions (13) and is tied for the team lead in receiving touchdowns (three), the freshman from Mesquite, Texas, acknowledged the important roles played by KU coach Turner Gill and offensive coordinator Chuck Long in bringing him to town. Still, it was Wyatt, a man who also served on Terry Allen’s coaching staff at KU in the late 1990s, who helped build the relationship between receiver and school that made Shepherd want to become a Jayhawk. “I felt like we were getting close,” Shepherd said. “He came to a couple of my basketball practices, and we talk-

He just told me some of the things he expected from me when I got it up here.” Once Wyatt left, Shepherd said he never had second thoughts about his commitment to Kansas. “Not really,” he said. “Just because he did call me and made sure I was OK. It was a good situation. Right after that, when (new KU receivers) coach (David) Beaty came in, he just picked up right where coach Wyatt left off. Coach Beaty said he was actually looking at me at Rice, but they never offered
me because they thought I’d get bigger offers.” There are a lot of guys on the Kansas roster, players and coaches alike, who have similar stories regarding Wyatt. Some, such as junior receiver Kale Pick, recall Wyatt’s work as a teacher, friend and mentor. Others, such as Long, reflect on the camaraderie and good times. For Pick, a former quarterback, Wyatt’s guidance during the Dodge City native’s transition to wide receiver is something for which he’ll always be appreciative.

“He just helped me out with the basics, starting out,” Pick said. “Just the stances as a receiver, some route techniques, getting off the line against press coverage, stuff like that. He also told me just to run. And just to be quick and fast out there. We only had two weeks left in the season, and he said we could smooth everything out in the offseason so he just wanted me to go out there and be my own player.” Though Wyatt was not around to help him through it, Pick took that message to heart and was regarded as one
of the Jayhawks’ top performers throughout the offseason. Today, he’s listed as a starter at wide receiver, and he’s looking forward to showing his former coach a thing or two during tonight’s match-up. “Absolutely,” said Pick, when asked if he was excited to face Wyatt. “He’s on the other side of the ball, and that’s kind of spiced things up a bit. I want to go out there and show him how much I’ve improved as a receiver.” Although Wyatt’s second stint at KU lasted just one season, Pick said he always
sensed that Lawrence and KU were special to Wyatt. “I think it meant a lot to him,” Pick said. “And he really worked hard. He was always in his office when I would knock on the door for his keys to get in the film room. He was a really dedicated coach. I’m looking forward to seeing him after the game and seeing how he’s doing. It was only two weeks, but I formed a pretty quick relationship with him.” While the Wyatt reunion has a warm and fuzzy feel for those on the Kansas sideline, Texas coach Mack Brown sees it as an advantage for UT. “He was at Kansas last year so he knows this team very well,” Brown said. “This will be a very important game to him. I laughed (and asked him), ‘Will this be any more special for you?’ (He told me) ‘I’ve coached at Oklahoma State, Oklahoma, Baylor, Kansas, all of these are special to me because I know every coach in this league.’ He’ll be excited to see a lot of those kids he recruited last year and see the coaches, as well.” Judging by the way some of KU’s coaches talked about Wyatt, the feeling’s mutual. “I just hope he doesn’t give those guys all my secrets,” said Long of his old pal. “We have a few things up our sleeve that he hasn’t seen before. I had to go deep, deep down in the playbook to find things he hadn’t seen in a long time. He keeps every playbook from everywhere he goes, and he’s gonna have to go down deep in his box to figure out what we’re doing.”

clinically depressed. I do not know what to do. Should I just ignore it? I mean, I’ve had it for a while already, and I don’t have any thoughts of suicide or harming myself. I do not want to tell my parents. They don’t need any more stress, and I’m pretty sure my dad would just tell me to “suck it up.” Please help. — Stressed Out Dear Stressed: Your parents should know about your firstname.lastname@example.org depression, but if you cannot talk to them about it, please may be jealous of your husdiscuss it with your school band. This occasionally can counselor, a favorite teacher happen with some parents or one of your friend’s parwhen a child marries, and if you call it to her attention, she will consider the possibility. But it’s just as likely that your husband’s personality simply irritates her to no end. You cannot control how other people behave or whether they like each other.

Cassandra, the bland witch I’ve long been vaguely fascinated by the “Good Witch” movies starring Catherine Bell (“Army Wives”) as the blandly bewitching Cassandra Nightingale. For reasons I can’t quite explain, I’m bowled over by their banality. I’m staggered by the predictability and amazed by the false soap-opera quality of the dialogue. Mostly, I’m intrigued by Cassie’s ultra laidback approach to her craft. If she were any more placid, she’d be in a coma. “The Good Witch’s Family” (8 p.m., Hallmark), the fourth in the series, throws some complications into the mix. Happily married to police Chief Jake Russell (Chris Potter), Cassie exults in stepmom-dom and running a gift shop in a postcardperfect town. Looming development galvanizes the forces of quaintness to fight some kind of bridge project, and before we know it, Cassie — a relative newcomer with a reputation for sorcery — becomes a popular candidate for mayor. But not everything goes smoothly. A distant relation, Abigail (Sarah Power), blows into town, trailing fumes of meddling resentment and trouble. But, as always, the plots to these movies don’t really matter as much as the exasperating unexcitability of Cassie. She glides throughout the story, untroubled and content, spouting fortune cookie aphorisms. It’s as if this were adapted from some comic book called “Sabrina, the Medicated Witch.”

ents. If you have a checkup scheduled, talk to your doctor. It is normal to feel down in the dumps occasionally, especially when there are external reasons. But if the feeling persists, it may require some type of intervention. Please don’t wait until you are too stressed to cope.

JACQUELINE BIGAR’S STARS For Saturday, Oct. 29: You might want to move in a new direction this year. Your instincts hold you back, as a conservative path might be best. You want to gain greater insight. If you are single, don’t hold yourself back so much. No one can truly love you until they really get to know you. If you are attached, the two of you need more mellow time alone as a couple. Work toward a goal. Libra could hold you back. 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 serious yet firm understanding of the possibilities helps you steer a steady course. Active discussions with at least one other person would indicate that you are on your own. Tonight: Feed your mind. Taurus (April 20-May 20) Reach out for a key partner in the financial realm. You might feel limited until you have this conversation. Tonight: Togetherness. Gemini (May 21-June 20) You might want to consider others’ requests. You have a plan. It might be wise to follow through on
what another person considers important. Tonight: Go with the flow. Cancer (June 21-July 22) Pace yourself, knowing how much you need to accomplish. A power play occurs between different interests involving financial security and risk-taking. Tonight: Make it an early night. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) You might want to extract more from a project requiring your creativity and a good deal of nurturing. Possibly someone is involved with you and has a good idea of what is possible. Tonight: Let your imagination rock and roll. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Your somber mood works well, as you need to feel restricted to some degree. If left alone, you could be carefree and a bit out of kilter. Tonight: Head home. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) Your slant might be a bit less assuming than you are used to, but on the other hand, it works much better. Tonight: Visit with a neighbor. Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) Be aware that you could be more negative than you realize. Pull back and do some solid thinking.

Dear Annie: I have been married to “George” for more than 20 years. For most of this time, there has been tension (to put it mildly) between my husband and my mother. He rubs her the wrong way, she snipes at him, and he snipes back. I’ve had several conversations with them over the years, asking them to be more tolerant of each other, if only for my sake. That works for a while, but eventually, they return to their old ways. What is bizarre is that my mother is normally a lovely, compassionate, considerate and caring person. She is a totally different person with George. I admit that my husband can be strong-willed and obstinate at times, but he has never deserved the treatment my mother gives him. I try to see Mom separately in order to avoid the drama of their interactions, but there are certain family events and holidays when I would prefer not to choose between them. And it never fails that if I convince George to attend a family function, something is said that starts the sniping again. Short of giving them joint counseling sessions for Christmas, what can I do? — Caught in the Middle and Hate It Dear Caught: Your mother
