CUSTODIAN GARY PLANCK, a nearly 30-year employee at Kansas University, sweeps the hallways Monday in the Art and Design Building. He joined other KU workers for town-hall meetings, at which KU identified some potential areas to save money and increase overall efficiency. Areas that may be involved include campus construction, facilities maintenance and upkeep, human resources, information technology and procurement. “It’s not a bad job,” Planck said. “They just keep wanting to change things.”
University initiatives will involve cutbacks in personnel, provost says everything we can to use attrition to handle job reductions,” Vitter said. “That doesn’t mean there won’t be job losses.” He said the Vitter overall level of staff reductions associated with the effort still wasn’t known. After audience members peppered Allen Humphrey, KU assistant director of human resources and equal opportunity, and Mike Phillips of

As Kansas University officials and members of the Huron Consulting Group told KU staffers about plans that will likely lead to job cuts, consolidations and other efficiencies in how KU does business, maintenance staff members expressed frustrations with the process. Jeff Vitter, KU’s provost and executive vice chancellor, acknowledged in an interview that some of the initiatives will involve cutbacks in personnel. “We would certainly do
the Huron Consulting Group with questions for about 40 minutes on issues related to KU’s plans to consolidate its maintenance operations throughout the campus, one questioner expressed concerns. “It sounds like to us you have virtually no specific answers to specific questions that have been asked,” the questioner said, after which the audience leapt into applause. Humphrey tried to answer the group’s questions, but said many elements were still unknown. “I want everybody to under-
stand we really are at the beginning of a process here,” he told the crowd. “It’s going to take awhile to move through that process.” Though handouts distributed at the meeting included some specific mentions and time lines — they said the maintenance changes could be implemented by March 2013 — Phillips said those weren’t hard-and-fast dates. Humphrey encouraged the group to submit feedback, and placed a sign-up sheet for those interested in contributing to more discussions at the Please see KU, page 2A
TOPEKA — Gov. Sam Brownback on Monday introduced Jim Mann as his new $150,000 chief information technology officer from Florida, but hours later the Brownback administration was fielding questions about Mann’s educational background. Mann lists a business administration degree from the University of Devonshire. The Chronicle of Higher Education and other reports list that school as among a group of unaccredited schools called diploma mills. Mann’s online résumé says he attended the University of Mary- Mann land from 1972 to 1974 and the University of Devonshire from 1993 to 1995. But Sherienne Jones-Sontag, a spokeswoman for Brownback, said Mann was hired based on his “20 years of top-flight private sector experience.” She said where Mann received his degree wasn’t as important as his work experience because information technology is such a fastchanging area. Earlier Monday, Brownback said Mann was an important hire. “This is a position the state desperately needs in order to catch up with advances in technology, to improve communication among and between Please see HIRE, page 2A

Missouri’s departure won’t change KU fight song By Andy Hyland email@example.com
Although Kansas University’s athletic teams won’t be twisting the Missouri Tigers’ tail as part of Big 12 Conference play starting next year, the lyric in the fight song won’t be going anywhere any time soon, KU Alumni Association officials said. “I think we made it pretty clear,” last year, said Kevin Corbett, KU Alumni Association president and CEO, when the association led the first revision for the song’s lyrics in more than 50 years. “We weren’t going to change it again, no matter what happened with conference realignment.” Last year, KU removed references to the University of
Nebraska and the University of Colorado, and added in references to the four Big 12 schools from Texas. Since then, both Texas A&M and Missouri have announced their intention to leave the conference. And even though the Tigers play a larger part in the song than most other conference foes (“Got a bill that’s big enough / To twist a Tiger’s tail,” reads one part of the song), they’ll be sticking around in the song for a while longer at least. “With the way the conference realignment is going, it would be kind of like roping the wind,” Corbett said. Matt Schoenfeld, a Coun-
feld said the initial version he turned in to the Alumni Association didn’t include the Aggies, as a sort of nod to his undergraduate institution’s rivalry with them. “As a slight to them, they were the one team I didn’t include,” he said, even though the person who edited the song added them in to be able to include all the teams. “I sent an email to the guy who ran the initial contest,” Schoenfeld said. “And I told him, ‘Now you see why I left the Aggies out.’” — Higher education reporter Andy Hyland can be reached at 832-6388.

tryside resident and Baylor University alumnus, has been a KU fan since the days when Ted Owens coached basketball. Schoenfeld wrote the winning entry in a contest to change the fight song’s lyrics. “My version didn’t last very long, did it?” Schoenfeld said on Monday. He said he was obviously disappointed that the conference didn’t hold up longer, and wasn’t too pleased that Missouri messed up the lyrics by leaving the conference. He said if the Alumni Association ever decided to change the song again, he’d be willing to work with it. In a moment that turned out to be rather prescient, Schoen-

Members of an advisory group plan to start discussing actual possibilities for closing or expanding or building schools in older sections of town, just as elected officials are expecting by early next year. Whether the group’s deliberations Nov. 21 will lead to actual recommendations by their Jan. 31 deadline remains an open question. “I think they understand they’ve got to move,” said school board member Randy Masten, who observed Monday’s meeting from the audience. “People want a lot of information, but there comes a point where you have to move forward.” Monday night, members of the Central and East Lawrence Elementary School Consolidation Working Group spent more than two hours reviewing past discussions, exploring new ways to communicate, hearing how the district’s English as a Second Language program functions, determining how to consolidate requests for information, receiving student demographic data, and learning how various school representatives are receiving and sharing information outside meetings of the working group. Several of the topics led some members to question why they even were discussed. “In my opinion these are all very nebulous,” said Lois Orth-Lopes, a teacher at Cordley School,

Corps changing Missouri River management plan after flooding By Margery A. Beck Associated Press
OMAHA, NEB. — The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers said Monday it will change its approach to managing the Missouri River following a summer of record flooding that damaged or destroyed hundreds of homes, led to millions of dollars in road repairs and forced communities to scramble to build temporary levees. The corps said it will make the changes in the coming months, including getting as much water out of the river basin’s reservoir system as possible before spring and aggressively releasing more water in the spring, if needed.

The schools being considered for consolidation are Cordley, Hillcrest, Kennedy, New York, Pinckney and Sunset Hill.

Dr. James J. Scheve Jim Scheve, 58, passed away in Springfield, Missouri, on Tuesday, November 1, 2011. He was born in Kansas City, Missouri, on April 2, 1953, to Harold and Pauline Scheve. Jim grew up in Lawrence, Kansas, where he graduated from the University of Kansas in 1976 and received his Doctorate of Optometry from the Southern College of Optometry, in Memphis, Tennessee, in 1980. Jim joined the doctors of Sunshine Eye Clinic in 1981. Jim is survived by his wife, Linda, of 35 years, and sons Jacob and Jesse, both of Springfield. He is also survived by his sister, Jane Neary, and brothers Daniel Scheve and John Scheve, along with many other loving family members. Jim was dedicated to many organizations, including the Springfield Association for the Blind, Parkview High School Baseball Booster Club, Federation of Fly Fishermen, Abou Ben Adhem
Shriners, and many others. Jim loved his family, his career, and the people he Scheve worked with. He also loved baseball, coaching many of his sons’ little league teams, and was an avid supporter of Parkview High School baseball. Jim also loved fly-fishing with his many friends and with his sons. He was particularly fond of the North Fork of the White River. A memorial service was held on Saturday, November 5, 2011 at GormanScharpf Funeral Home.

front of the room. The level of interest in the maintenance part of the plan took KU officials by surprise, and they had to move the gathering from Alderson Auditorium in the Kansas Union to the bigger Woodruff Auditorium to accommodate the more than 200 interested people who showed up for the presentation. On Monday, they discussed the eight “business cases” selected from the 12 options presented to KU. Vitter said the university won’t tackle all eight at once and will move forward with some of the easier-to-implement plans first, like a change in the way KU handles its procurement processes. The more the changes involve personnel, the longer they will take, Vitter said. Among options not cho-

The corps also is looking at how much more reservoir space might be needed to ease flooding. The changes come in response to concerns voiced by residents — many of whom lost crops or were forced out of their homes for weeks by the flooding — during eight public meetings recently held in Iowa, Missouri, Nebraska, Kansas, Montana and North Dakota. “The past two weeks have been incredibly beneficial, and we have listened intently to the people we serve,” Brig. Gen. John McMahon, the commander of the corps’ northwestern division, said in a written release. “The top priority of the Northwest-
ern Division Missouri is to responsibly prepare for the 2012 runoff season.” The public meetings often turned contentious, with corps officials facing angry residents who blamed them for not doing more to allay the flooding. Corps officials said they had the reservoirs at desired levels last spring, but a late buildup of snow in the Rocky Mountains and unexpectedly heavy rains in Montana and other upstream areas in May led to record runoff. That prompted to the corps to release massive amounts of water from dams along the river, resulting in massive flooding downstream.

Brownback also issued an executive order that directs all executive branch agency IT directors and staff to report to Mann. That order excludes regents universities. Mann, 58, said he hoped
remember that a bond issue likely could be structured so that property taxes would not go up, thanks previous bond issues going off the books. “That can’t hurt us,” said Dawn Shew, a parent representing the Kennedy community. Recommending which schools should close and how other schools and boundaries should be expanded or adjusted or reconfigured will require plenty of give and take, said Josh Davis, a parent from the New York community, finishing up his sixth meeting of the working group. But at least discussions during the seventh promise to finally hit some form of tangible possibilities that at least can be judged or refined or considered or, well, anything. “I cannot believe I’m going to get home, and my wife’s going to say, ‘What did you talk about?’ and I’m going to have to say, ‘Nothing,’” Davis said. “While I appreciate all the data and everything, I cannot believe we’re this far and we haven’t talked about anything. It’s driving me crazy.”
Starting point So he suggested a combination that has been brought up before: Combine New York and Kennedy, the district’s two elementary schools with the highest concentrations of students receiving free and reduced-price lunches, a measure district officials use to measure poverty.
Davis isn’t saying it’s the right answer. But it’s something to talk about, to get the discussion going, and he’d like to hear how district administrators would address issues related to poverty in a large, combined school. “I’m ready to talk about it,” Davis told group members. “Let’s talk about it because we’ve talked about it, just among our New York folks. And we see positives and negatives. And we can’t decide which way it leans. And we are dying for some information.” Davis expects such information during the next meeting: 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. Nov. 21 at district headquarters, 110 McDonald Drive. That’s when others will be invited to bring their own ideas, with those suggestions to be posted on large sheets of paper displayed around the room for all to see. “Given where we are, let’s now crystallize on some options, and let’s make a case for those options and expand on the strengths and weaknesses of those options,” said Kissan Joseph, a parent from the Sunset Hill community, who worries that the group could spend another three months coming up with a long list of criteria to use in assessing scenarios. “There’s only one criteria: what’s good for our community.” — Schools reporter Mark Fagan can be reached at 832-7188.

AREAS FOR EFFICIENCY Kansas University chose eight areas presented by the Huron Consulting Group on which to focus in the coming years to improve efficiency as part of its Changing for Excellence plan.
Budgeting process — The university will look to redesign its annual budget allocation process to encompass all sources of funding.
Campus construction — KU will increase its involvement in the construction process in many areas, including the way it purchases materials for construction.
Creation of business centers — These would centralize functions done in several departments in one central, specialized location by employees who specialized in those functions.
Enrollment management, domestic and international — KU is looking at new ways to increase its enrollments and retention rates among students.
Facilities maintenance and upkeep — The university is hoping to achieve savings by combining its maintenance operations.

Brownback’s Medicaid plan to be released
1 | WASHINGTON, D.C.
U.S. poverty at new high: 49.1 million A record number of Americans — 49.1 million — are poor, based on a new census measure that for the first time takes into account rising medical costs and other expenses. The numbers released Monday are part of a first-ever supplemental poverty measure aimed at providing a fuller picture of poverty. Although considered experimental, they promise to stir fresh debate over Social Security, Medicare and programs to help the poor as a congressional supercommittee nears a Nov. 23 deadline to make more than $1 trillion in cuts to the federal budget. Based on the revised formula, the number of poor people exceeds the record 46.2 million, or 15.1 percent, that was officially reported in September. Broken down by group, Americans 65 or older sustained the largest increases in poverty under the revised formula — nearly doubling to 15.9 percent, or 1 in 6 — because of medical expenses that are not accounted for in the official rate.

TOPEKA — The long-anticipated Medicaid reform package from Gov. Sam Brownback will be unveiled today. “That is a big deal,” Brownback said. “We have worked months on it.” Brownback has sought to reduce costs in the program that provides health care for nearly 350,000 Kansans, mostly children, pregnant women, the elderly and people with disabilities. Jointly financed by federal and state dollars, Medicaid costs $2.8 billion per year, with

$1.1 billion coming from Kansas taxpayers. Brownback put Lt. Gov. Jeff Colyer, a physician and surgeon, in charge of trying to find ways to cut Brownback Medicaid expenses by $200 million to $400 million. “Medicaid has been eating us alive,” Brownback said. Some advocates have expressed concern that cuts will reduce services to the Kansans who are most vulnerable and poor, but Brownback and his
staff have said they won’t reduce services. Brownback said the state also will prepare a request for proposal to seek bids from companies for expanding managed care of the program. The plan will be unveiled at a news conference with Brownback, Colyer and other members of a Cabinet working group. Those include Secretary of Aging Shawn Sullivan, Health and Environment Secretary Robert Moser, and Social and Rehabilitation Services Secretary Robert Siedlecki Jr. Later today, another major initiative on Brownback’s plate, school finance, will be discussed
at the State Board of Education. Brownback’s policy director, Landon Fullmer, will talk with the board, but Brownback said no details of a plan would be discussed. He said he hoped to have a full proposal ready in December. In previous talks, Fullmer has said Brownback would propose a school finance plan that would allow local districts more authority to raise local taxes for education. Some school advocates say this will worsen funding inequities between wealthy and poor school districts. — Statehouse reporter Scott Rothschild can be reached at 785-423-0668.

Dr. Conrad Murray sat stone-faced, his chin held high, as he heard the verdict that could send him to prison for up to four years and cost him his license to practice medicine. He was handcuffed and immediately led off to jail without bail to await sentencing Nov. 29.

Smaller tremors follow earthquake More aftershocks rattled central Oklahoma on Monday in the wake of a magnitude-5.6 weekend earthquake, the strongest yet in a state that has seen a dramatic, unexplained increase in seismic activity. The U.S. Geological Survey had recorded at least five tremors throughout the day, the strongest being a 4.7 magnitude quake Monday night near Prague, a town about 75 miles southwest of Tulsa. There were no immediate reports of damage or injuries, Oklahoma Department of Emergency Management spokeswoman Keli Cain said. Reports from Saturday’s quake however, continued to come in, with the bulk from Lincoln, Pottawatomie, Creek and Okfuskee counties. Damage ranged from cracks in the walls of homes across the area to a bridge in Okfuskee County awaiting inspection by an engineer, Cain said. State officials didn’t yet have an estimate for the total damage, and said it could take several more days to compile one.

Retired KU prof giving $1.4 million to establish urban planning position By Andy Hyland firstname.lastname@example.org
A retired Kansas University professor of urban planning has established a $1.4 million estate commitment to KU for the university’s first professorship in urban planning. Alan Black taught at KU beginning in 1981 and took full retirement in 2007. He said he was able to give because, “I never married and didn’t have any children.” Education runs in his family, too. His father was a professor at Harvard University, and his mother was a teacher. Both his brother and brother-in-law worked as professors, and his sister was a teacher. He is dividing his estate largely between KU and Cornell University, where he received his doctoral degree. He also has contributed $158,000 to a
scholarship created for urban planning graduate students, which is named for him. “Alan has created many ‘firsts’ in the Urban Planning Department — from his scholarship and now to the professorship in his name,” said John Gaunt, dean of architecture, design and planning. “We are so grateful for his generosity and for the impact that his philanthropy has had and will have on the department and on KU urban planning students.” Black said he enjoyed his time at KU and never sought another job. He said he appreciated the need for funding to hire professors — after he fully retired in 2007, the department was not able to hire a replacement for him until this year, he said. “It’s a specialized field,” he said. “We compete with some institutions that are very attractive to people.”

The Douglas County Sheriff’s Office reported a recent spike in burglaries in rural Douglas County. Sgt. Steve Lewis, spokesman for the Sheriff’s Office, said 16 burglaries have been reported since Oct. 1 — with six of those in November. While Lewis did not have a yearto-date total for burglaries in 2011, reported burglaries in the Sheriff’s Office jurisdiction — which includes the townships in the county and fairground property — have averaged about five a month since 2006, according to FBI statistics. “It’s above average,” Lewis said of the recent spike.

Jayhawk cheer propels runner in Dublin Marathon By Christine Metz firstname.lastname@example.org
Most experienced runners will tell you that one of the best ways to garner cheers of support during a race is by donning the attire of your alma mater. It’s a theory that turns out to be true even if you are a Kansas University alumnus running your first marathon as far away as Ireland. Just ask Tommy Ryan. Ryan, a native of Harold’s Cross in Dublin who has lived most of his life in Lawrence, graduated from KU in 2003 and worked at the university until 2010. A cross-country runner in high school, Ryan picked running as a way to get back into shape. He decided to aim for the Dublin Marathon, which was a great excuse to visit a country he loved. On Oct. 31, Ryan set out on the 26.2-mile course wearing a blue KU T-shirt. Along the way, Ryan heard shouts of “Go, Kansas!” But it was on the very last leg of the race when Ryan knew he heard a true Jayhawk fan in the crowd. He was on mile 24 or 25 and had just run up a long incline that wrecked his leg. “I was concentrating on staying alive, really,” Ryan wrote during a Facebook

And then he heard a familiar sound: a “Rock Chalk, Jayhawk” cheer. “I had a big grin on my face. I shouted something lame back like ‘Woo hoo!’ It was a great boost indeed!” Ryan wrote. And the stranger’s cheering paid off. Ryan finished the race in less than four hours (3 hours, 50 minutes and 38 seconds to be exact), something he didn’t think he could do. Before the age of social

“This is a test of the Emergency Alert System. This is only a test.” That’s a familiar warning and at 1 p.m. Wednesday will be the first nationwide test of the Emergency Alert System, or EAS, conducted jointly by the Department of Homeland Security, Federal Emergency Management Agency, Federal Communications Commission and National Weather Service. The EAS is frequently used locally or regionally to send weather alerts and Amber alerts for children in danger. Originally, the test was scheduled to last three minutes and 30 seconds, but that test duration has been shortened. Still the test will be unique. “It’s never been used. It’s never been nationally tested, and in light of the things that happened around the world over the last 10 to 12 years, both FEMA and the FCC felt they needed to test the system and see how it’s operating,” said Kent Cornish, president of the Kansas Association of Broadcasters.
The test will begin at 1 p.m. Wednesday and transmitted by area radio and television stations, as well as cable systems and satellite TV providers, and it will briefly interrupt programming. According to FEMA, the test will help agencies determine the reliability of the system and its effectiveness in notifying the public of emergencies and potential dangers nationally and regionally. Federal, state and local emergency management officials are working to get the word out to the public about the test because it will last longer than the normal monthly tests. Listeners will hear a message indicating “This is a test,” but the video message slide or scroll across the television screen may not always indicate it is a test. According to a FEMA guide about the test, authorities want to avoid confusion and people possibly inundating emergency dispatchers with calls during the test. Officials at Douglas County Emergency Management said the event serves as a reminder for Douglas County
Local chapter of group calls for plan that would place fee on carbon By Christine Metz firstname.lastname@example.org
Most folks want energy costs to go down, so it’s rare to find a group pushing for energy costs to increase. But that’s the intention of a chapter of the Citizens Climate Lobby forming in Lawrence. Their goal is to convince politicians to place a fee on carbon to help speed the transition to a clean energy economy. The idea originated with James Hansen, head of NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies and author of the book “Storms of My Grandchildren.” Any carbon that comes from the ground, such as coal, oil and natural gas, would be taxed. The revenue would be distributed evenly among households through a monthly dividend. The fees increase gradually over time. The hope is for the carbon fee to produce more innova-
tion and investment in clean energy and for the dividend to help ease consumers’ transition to a clean energy future. “When people hear about this, they are really intrigued and feel very positive about the concept once they understand what it is,” said Lynate Pettengill, who is spearheading the formation of the Lawrence chapter. The Lawrence chapter will have its first meeting on Nov. 16, during which Citizens Climate Lobby executive director Mark Reynolds will talk. The meeting will be from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. at Delaware Street Commons, 1222 Del. For more information, contact Pettengill at 785-3310625 or e-mail her at email@example.com.

BRIEFLY Olathe, was transported by State agency launches of ambulance to Lawrence Meadoption initiative morial Hospital with non-life TOPEKA (AP) — Kansas is launching an effort to increase the number of children adopted through the state system. Social and Rehabilitation Services Secretary Rob Siedlecki says his agency is starting a Siedlecki $300,000 marketing campaign to find adoptive homes for 420 children who don’t have other prospects, such as adoption by relatives. The funds for the campaign announced Monday come from a federal program. Siedlecki says the effort will focus on who are 8 years old and older, who may belong to a minority group, have a disability or belong to a sibling group that wants to stay together. Siedlecki said 761 adoptions were finalized through the state in the fiscal year that ended June 30. He said 178 adoptions have been finalized through the state so far in the current fiscal year.
media, chances are the story would end there. But the woman who shouted to Ryan was Kathy Kipp, a 1997 alumna who lives in Dublin. She reported her encounter to the KU Alumni Association. The Alumni Association posted Kipp’s inquiry on Facebook. “Kathy, an alumna living in Ireland, saw a fellow Jayhawk running in the Dublin Marathon today. She wasn’t able to snap a photo, but she reports that he was delighted and surprised to hear her shout ‘Rock Chalk, Jayhawk!’” the alumni association’s post said. A friend of Ryan’s spotted the post and thought she might know whom the mysterious runner was. She alerted Ryan. “The second I read it, I about flew out of my seat,” Ryan wrote. Ryan quickly replied that indeed it was him, and the cheering gave him the boost he needed at a crucial moment.

He said he thought few districts in Kansas have addressed the issue. Julie Ford, formally hired Thursday as the district’s new superintendent, agreed with McCarthy that protecting transgender students would continue to be a growing issue. If the policy changes, it would not create an immediate need for changes to district facilities, she said. “The policy change comes first, then you develop regulations on how you’ll follow the policy,” she said. “But there have been things happening lately — a growing number of suicides, for instance — that have caused people to think beyond what our current boundaries are.

“It not only provides protection, but also sends a clear message that (a school district) will not tolerate discrimination,” said Stephanie Mott, a transgender woman who is chairwoman of the Topeka chapter of the Kansas Equality Coalition. “When that message is absent, it opens the door for discrimination.” Board member Peg McCarthy, a clinical psychiatrist, said that surveys showed that 80 percent of gay and lesbian students feel unsafe in their schools and that more than 60 percent have experienced bullying. She predicted the issue would become more prominent because transgender students are making their sexual identity known at earlier ages.

Senate considers aid for jobless vets, contractors By Alan Fram Associated Press
WASHINGTON — The Senate voted overwhelmingly Monday to temporarily set aside its partisan standoff over President Barack Obama’s jobs plan and move toward giving a modest economic spark to two potent interest groups: veterans and businesses. In a 94-1 roll call, senators voted to start debating a measure repealing a requirement that federal, state and many local governments withhold 3 percent of their payments to contractors. That bill has been lobbied by a wide swath of industry groups large and small and has no significant opposition. By the time the Senate approves the legislation — perhaps later this week — Democrats planned to add language backed by both parties offering tax breaks to companies that hire veterans and providing vets with employment counseling and other job-hunting services. Monday’s one-sided vote signaled that barring an unexpected twist, the Senate was likely to send the overall measure to the House, which returns from a recess next week. The tax credits, up to $9,600 for companies hiring disabled veterans who have been jobless at least six months, would represent the first — though tiny — piece of Obama’s $447 billion jobs proposal to be approved by Congress, assuming Senate and then House passage. The expected cooperation contrasted with the two parties’ battling at a time when persistent 9 percent unemployment is keeping 14 million Americans out of work and looming as the dominant issue in the 2012 presidential and congressional elections. It also masked the divisions between Democrats and Republicans over the keystones of Obama’s jobs plan — spending huge sums to repair roads, hire teachers and give workers and companies breaks on the payroll tax. Not coincidentally, the measure was beginning to move toward approval just ahead of Friday’s Veterans Day celebrations, when lawmakers stream home for speeches and parades. And even as the two sides seemed ready to cooperate, they exchanged partisan slings over lawmakers’ refusal so far to approve the rest of the president’s jobs proposal. “There’s no good reason to oppose this bill, not one,” Obama said in the White House Rose Garden as he promoted his proposed aid for veterans. “Our veterans did their jobs. It’s time for Congress to do theirs.” On the Senate floor, Majority Leader Harry Reid, DNev., cited Republican opposition that has sunk the jobs legislation so far this year and taunted, “Now we will see whether Senate Republicans are willing to put jobs for veterans at risk as well. I certainly hope they are not. Firing back, Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., complained that the Republican-run House has approved nearly two dozen jobs measures that the Democraticled Senate has ignored. The reason, he said: “So the president can go around on a bus and blame Congress for the country’s problems.”

Woman accuses Cain of bold sexual advance, giving detailed account By Beth Fouhy and Jack Gillum

my leg, under my skirt toward my genitals,” she said. “He also pushed my head toward his crotch,” she added. Bialek said she told her boyfriend, an unidentified pediatrician, as well as a longtime male friend about the episode. None of Cain’s other accusers has provided details as graphic as Bialek’s account. But Joel Bennett, an attorney who represents one of them, said her details were “similar in nature” to what his client encountered. Allred, a prominent sex discrimination attorney with Democratic ties, moved preemptively to blunt any attacks on Bialek’s motives. She described her client as a registered Republican, a single mother and a woman with a long and successful work history. She also said Bialek “could have attempted to sell her story but chose not to do so,” and knew that by stepping forward, she would receive scrutiny. Court records indicate Bi-

SHARON BIALEK, A CHICAGO-AREA WOMAN, WITH HER ATTORNEY GLORIA ALLRED, RIGHT, addresses a news conference at the Friars Club on Monday in New York. Bialek accused Republican presidential contender Herman Cain of making an unwanted sexual advance against her in 1997. Bialek says she wants to provide “a face and a voice” to support other accusers who have so far remained anonymous.
Researchers offer new way to predict obesity in babies By Lindsey Tanner

NEW YORK — Leaving little to the imagination, a Chicago-area woman on Monday accused Republican presidential hopeful Herman Cain of making a crude sexual advance more than a decade ago when she was seeking his help finding a job. “Come clean,” Sharon Bialek challenged Cain at a news conference in New York at which she described herself as “a face and a voice” to support other accusers who have so far remained anonymous. Cain’s campaign swiftly denied Bialek’s account. “All allegations of haCain rassment against Mr. Cain are completely false,” it said in a written statement. Even so, Bialek’s nationally broadcast appearance on cable television marked a new and — for Cain — dangerous turn in a controversy that he has struggled for more than a week to shed. An upstart in the presidential race, Cain shot to the top of public opinion polls in recent weeks and emerged, however temporarily, as the main conservative challenger to Mitt Romney. Accompanied by her prominent lawyer, Gloria Allred, Bialek accused Cain of making a sexual advance one night in mid-July 1997 when she had traveled to Washington to have dinner with him in hopes he could help her find work. She said the two had finished dinner and were in a car for what she thought was a ride to an office building. “Instead of going into the offices, he suddenly reached over, and he put his hand on

alek had financial difficulties a decade ago when she filed for bankruptcy protection and reported $4,500 in unpaid rent and $13,000 in outstanding credit card bills. Current property records show she owns a house on an acre of land in a Chicago suburb. Some of Cain’s allies immediately made a target of Allred, a Democratic campaign donor, rather than focusing any anger on Cain’s accuser. Georgia state Sen. Joshua McKoon, who has endorsed Cain, accused Allred of “carnival theatrics” fueled by a partisan agenda. But Doug Heye, a political consultant who is unaligned in the GOP race, said Bialek’s allegations “are different because they involve a name and specific details.” He said Allred’s involvement “is going to make some people disbelieve the charges out of hand because of the sideshow she creates. But Herman Cain has to be clear and convincing in his response.”
Deadly riot breaks out in Liberia before vote MONROVIA, LIBERIA — Violence broke out at the headquarters of Liberia’s main opposition party and at least one person was killed Monday, less than 24 hours before a presidential runoff vote that is being viewed as a test of the country’s fragile peace after a devastating civil war. It was unclear what caused the rioting outside the Congress for Democratic Change party, but Monrovia has been tense ever since the CDC’s candidate Winston Tubman called for his supporters to boycott Tuesday’s vote. International observers have rejected his allegation that the electoral process is rigged in favor of President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, and analysts say he is pulling out of the vote because he knows he will lose. On Monday afternoon, at least 100 Liberian security forces and United Nations peacekeepers descended on the Congo Town neighborhood of Monrovia, where they secured the perimeter of the CDC headquarters, setting up roadblocks to redirect traffic. An Associated Press photographer saw a man lying inside the headquarters, his head bloodied. Debris including rocks were strewn across the road, and witnesses told the AP that security forces opened fire after the rioting broke out.

New formula would reduce Social Security increases Taxes would go up by $60 billion over the next decade because annual adjustments to the tax WASHINGTON — Just as 55 brackets would be smaller, resulting in more people million Social Security re- jumping into higher tax brackets because their cipients are about to get their wages rose faster than the new inflation measure. By Stephen Ohlemacher
first benefit increase in three years, Congress is looking at reducing future raises by adopting a new measure of inflation that also would increase taxes for most families — the biggest impact falling on those with low incomes. If adopted across the government, the inflation measure would have widespread ramifications. Future increases in veterans’ benefits and pensions for federal workers and military personnel would be smaller. And over time, fewer people would qualify for Medicaid, Head Start, food stamps, school lunch programs and home heating assistance than under the current measure. Taxes would go up by $60 billion over the next decade because annual adjustments to the tax brackets would be smaller, resulting in more people jumping into higher
tax brackets because their wages rose faster than the new inflation measure. Annual increases in the standard deduction and personal exemptions would become smaller. Despite fierce opposition from seniors groups, the proposal is gaining momentum in part because it would let policymakers gradually cut benefits and increase taxes in a way that might not be readily apparent to most Americans. Changes at first would be small — the Social Security increase would be cut by just a few dollars in the first year. But the impact, as well as savings to the government, would grow over time, generating about $200 billion in the first decade and much more after that.
The proposal to adopt a new Consumer Price Index was floated by the Obama administration during deficit reduction talks in the summer. Now, it is one of the few options supported by both Democratic and Republican members of a joint supercommittee in Congress working to reduce government borrowing. The committee of six Democrats and six Republicans is struggling to come up with a plan to reduce government red ink by at least $1.2 trillion over the next decade. Changing the inflation index alone would put them a sixth of the way there. “I think the thought process behind this is, slip this in, people won’t understand it,” said Max Richtman, president and CEO of the National
Committee to Preserve Social Security and Medicare. Richtman’s group is spending about $2 million on radio, TV and direct mail ads to fight cuts in Social Security and Medicare. His message to Congress: “Don’t believe that taking this approach to cutting Social Security will not be noticed. You will pay for it.” A TV ad by AARP puts it this way: “We are 50 million seniors who earned our benefits, and you will be hearing from us today — and on Election Day.” The inflation measure under consideration is called the Chained Consumer Price Index, or chained CPI. On average, the measure shows a lower level of inflation than the more widely used CPI for All Urban Consumers. Many economists argue that the chained CPI is more accurate because it assumes that as prices increase, consumers switch to lower cost alternatives, reducing the amount of inflation they experience.
Judge blocks graphic images on cigarette packages By Nedra Pickler Associated Press
WASHINGTON — A judge on Monday blocked a federal requirement that would have begun forcing tobacco companies next year to put graphic images including dead and diseased smokers on their cigarette packages. U.S. District Judge Richard Leon ruled that it’s likely the cigarette makers will succeed in a lawsuit to block the requirement. He stopped the requirement until the lawsuit is resolved, which could take years. Leon found the nine graphic images approved by the Food and Drug Administration in June go beyond conveying the facts about the health risks of smoking or go beyond that into advocacy — a critical distinction in a case

The judge also pointed out the size of the labels suggests they are unconstitutional — the FDA requirement said the labels were to cover the entire top half of cigarette packs, front and back and include a number for a stopsmoking hot line. The labels were to constitute 20 percent of cigarette advertising, and marketers were to rotate use of the images. Leon said the labels would amount to a “mini-billboard” for the agency’s “obvious anti-smoking agenda.” The Justice Department argued that the images, coupled with written warnings, were designed to communicate the dangers to youngsters and adults. The FDA declined to comment on the judge’s ruling.
Experts: Oklahoma quakes too powerful to be man-made

there,” said U.S. Geological Survey seismologist Paul Earle. “You can have an earthquake that size anywhere east of the Rockies. You don’t need a huge fault to produce an earthquake that big. It’s uncommon but not unexpected.” But there’s a reason people ask if the quakes are manmade rather than from the shifting of the Earth’s crusts. In the past, earthquakes have been linked to energy exploration and production, including from injections of enormous amounts of drilling wastewater or injections of water for geothermal power, experts said. They point to recent earthquakes in the magnitude-3 and -4 range — not big enough to cause much damage but big enough to be felt — in Arkansas, Texas, California, England, Germany and Switzerland. And back in the 1960s, two Denver quakes in the 5.0 range were traced to deep injection of wastewater. Still, scientists would like to know if human activity can trigger a larger event. The National Academy of Sciences is studying the seismic effects of energy drilling and mining and will issue a report next spring.
WASHINGTON — Thousands of times every day, drilling deep underground causes the earth to tremble. But don’t blame the surprise flurry of earthquakes in Oklahoma on man’s thirst for oil and gas, experts say The weekend quakes were far stronger than the puny tremors from drilling — especially the controversial practice of hydraulic fracturing. The weekend quakes didn’t have the mark of man. They were a force of nature. Hydraulic fracturing, called fracking, involves injecting millions of gallons of water, sand and chemicals deep underground to break up rock. While that may sound like it could cause an earthquake, experts say the process doesn’t pack nearly the punch of even a moderate earthquake. The magnitude-5.6 quake that rocked Oklahoma three miles underground had the power of 3,800 tons of TNT, which is nearly 2,000 times stronger than the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing. The typical energy released in tremors triggered by fracking, “is the equivaMedicalodges Eudora lent to a gallon of Goes Bronze! milk falling off the kitchen counter,” Proud recipient of the said Stanford University geophysicist 2011 AHCA/NCAL Mark Zoback.

Pressure mounts on Italy’s Berlusconi to quit
By Frances D’Emilio and Victor L. Simpson Associated Press
ROME — Italy became the latest target in Europe’s financial crisis Monday, as soaring borrowing rates intensified pressure on Premier Silvio Berlusconi to resign and let a new government reform the country’s spendthrift ways. Berlusconi batted away reports that he was considering stepping down in favor of early e l e c t i o n s , Berlusconi saying they were “without foundation.” But the prospect of financial disaster was real because of Italy’s huge debts and slow growth. Unlike Greece, Ireland and Portugal — the three countries that Europe has already bailed out — Italy’s economy could be too large to rescue. Investors want the government to quickly pass measures to boost growth and cut debt. But defections from Berlusconi’s coalition government mean he no longer commands enough loyalty to pass the reforms. Increasingly, Berlusconi is himself being seen as the problem. If Berlusconi should resign or lose a confidence vote, President Giorgio Napolitano would decide whether to call
early elections, or name a government of technocrats rather than politicians. The most widely discussed name to lead a technical government is Mario Monti, the former EU competition commissioner who once blocked General Electric’s takeover of Honeywell. The opposition center-left has long demanded the resignation of Berlusconi, citing sex scandals, criminal prosecutions and legislative priorities it says are aimed at protecting his own business interests rather than those of the country. However, it has failed to come up with a leader who can energize the base and create a credible program, leaving the opposition divided and rudderless. The ultimate fear is that Italy cannot pay for its 1.9 trillion euro, or $2.6 trillion, debt and needs international help. Europe would struggle with a bailout that large, meaning a default that could break up the 17-nation eurozone and drag down the global economy. During a G-20 summit last week, Berlusconi had to ask the International Monetary Fund to monitor the country’s reform efforts, a humiliating step for the eurozone’s third-largest economy. The yield on Italy’s 10-year bonds jumped another 0.42 of a percentage point Monday to 6.67 percent, its highest level since the euro was established in 1999. That is drawing uncomfortably near the 7 percent threshold that forced Ireland and Portugal to accept bailouts.

Ron Paul’s issues now part of debate
MU move Kansas University fans won’t waste any time mourning the loss of their rival to the east.
ooray for Kansas University basketball coach Bill Self for making it crystal clear the vast majority of Jayhawk fans are not going to shed any tears over the University of Missouri’s departure from the Big 12 conference to join the Southeast Conference. It would be nice if other KU officials had the courage and conviction to speak out with Self’s clarity rather than trying to couch their reaction to MU’s snub of the Big 12 with nicey-nice politically correct statements. Self told Journal-World writer Gary Bedore, “I think everybody hoped that Missouri would stay, but I don’t know of any Kansas fans that are crying over them leaving.” Asked whether the Jayhawks and Tigers would play again in men’s basketball, Self said, “We will play them two more times — we’ve got them home and away this year.” Asked about scheduling MU at a later date, the highly successful Self said, “Like I said before, we have absolutely no obligation whatsoever to play Missouri in basketball. None. If we do so, it will only be done because it’s best for Kansas, not done because anyone else wants us to. We couldn’t care less what Missouri wants. If in fact they want to play us, it will be strictly determined if we want to. It will not be determined by other people, because I’ll be honest, the majority of Kansas fans don’t give a flip about playing Missouri.” KU Chancellor Bernadette Gray-Little and KU Athletic Director Sheahon Zenger issued statements to “wish Missouri all the best in the future,” and added “We’re sorry to see a century-old rivalry end.” Since the days of the late MU football coach Dan Devine, Missouri officials have tried to gain admission to the Big 10 conference. They were rejected at that time and again a year or so ago when they tried to get into the Big 10. After that rebuff, they asked to be admitted to the SEC. This was not a slam dunk because some SEC officials were not eager to bring in Missouri. Some didn’t like Missouri trying to be assigned to the western division of the conference and they indicated they didn’t like the idea of MU officials trying to dictate terms and bully SEC officials to do whatever Missouri wanted. Eventually, MU got the OK to join the SEC, but only as a part of the conference’s eastern division. MU officials have said they want to continue athletic competition with the Jayhawks on an annual basis and have indicated they would consider an annual football game in Kansas City’s Arrowhead Stadium. There will be considerable pressure by Kansas City business interests and the city’s Chamber of Commerce and sports commission to entice KU officials to buy into such an event. Their efforts are not about school rivalry or tradition; it’s only an attempt to help the Kansas City economy. It is hoped KU officials will say “no way.” If, by some chance, such a game should be scheduled, it should be played on the campuses of the two schools, not Arrowhead Stadium. What happens to the annual post-season Big 12 basketball tournament in Kansas City will be up to the conference chancellors, presidents, athletic directors and coaches. Again, it is refreshing to read and hear what Self has to say about Missouri turning its back on the Big 12. The last scheduled KUMU basketball games — Feb. 4 in Columbia and Feb. 25 in Lawrence — as well as the Nov. 26 football game in Kansas City, are sure to be heated and emotional games. LAWRENCE

decades. “We continue to spend, the deficit has exploded, we continued to borrow and we continue to tax — and we wonder why we haven’t had a recovery.” This is not a message that is alien to this terrain. Long before some of the members of the Greater Nashua Chamber of Commerce came of age politically, New Hampshire politicians, especially Gov. Meldrim Thomson Jr., who presided in Concord from 1973 to 1979, spoke in an idiom much like Paul’s. So if the Paul message of “freedom and prosperity” is to flourish anywhere, this is the place — and this is the time. “He reminds us that the government has a limited role, not an expansive role,” said Ovide Lamontagne, unsuccessful Republican gubernatorial candidate here in 1996 and a candidate again in 2012. Lamontagne is not committed to any presidential candidate, but he regards the Paul candidacy as “a statement of empowerment, not powerlessness.” Nobody is predicting that

Paul will prevail in January’s primary. Former Gov. Mitt Romney of Massachusetts has roots too deep in this region and is in too strong a position, at least right now. But the Nashua crowd wasn’t only full of the converted. It was crowded, too, with the curious. For years Ron Paul events didn’t attract the curious, who were repelled by the true believers, committed supporters like Robert Carley, who rose at 3 a.m. to drive from Darien, Conn., to Nashua to present Paul a cartoon of the candidate. “He has a great face to caricature — interesting eyes, high eyebrows,” Carley said. “But I admire his conservative policies. He was prophetic about the economy and all the money we wasted in Iraq.” Paul is a political perennial, which ordinarily is a political liability. But Paul is a perennial with a difference. No longer are he and his views colorful eccentricities. He’s not the only one skeptical of the Fed, nor the only one worried about federal spending. His $2 million ad offensive here — the earliest big TV bang yet — has a simple theme: the changing views of his rivals and the consistency of his own views. He hasn’t adjusted his message to the current debate. The current debate has been bent to his message. “I don’t know whether things have come my way or not,” he said in an interview. “A lot of mistakes have been made and people are paying new attention to all this overspending.” Today, with the economy still in distress and foreign wars causing increasing distress, a Venn diagram of Dr. Paul’s ideas would give a viewer a serious case of vertigo. His position on the Fed inter-
sects that of Sen. Bernard Sanders, the Vermont socialist. His position on spending intersects that of the tea party. His position on foreign intervention intersects those of some conservative Republicans and liberal Democrats. And he sees allies in Occupy Wall Street. “The street demonstrations are symbols of our problems,” he said in the interview. “It’s now important that all that energy be channeled in the right way. A lot of those people are skeptical of the Fed. But some of them want to penalize anybody’s who’s successful. That’s not the way to go.” All those intersections explain why he was asked here by a woman who’s an officer in the National Guard whether he’d withdraw American troops from Afghanistan (his answer: “Just come home”) and by a man who described himself as a carpenter, wilderness guide, teacher and novelist whether the Fed was “a cabal of international bankers” (Paul: “We can get rid of it by congressional action”). Listen to the heart of the Paul message: “The Constitution is to protect individuals’ rights to make their own choices,” he said. “We have accepted this idea that the government can be so big that it can bankrupt our economy and endanger our liberties. We have to decide what the role of government should be.” Every one of those sentences could be spoken in 2012 by any number of Republican candidates. Paul is running for more than president. He is running to make his ideas part of the mainstream debate. He’ll likely lose the first campaign. He’s already won the second. — David M.

Community must meet shelter challenge By Katherine Dinsdale
What the Lawrence Journal-World stands for
NASHUA, N.H. — The trees are ablaze with yellows and reds and, since an early snowfall the night before, blanketed with white as well. All that color in southern New Hampshire in mid-autumn, however, is more than a visual display. It underlines how mixed up the seasons are — how mixed up our politics are — in the final months before the first presidential primary. But this is also the season for Ron Paul, the iconoclastic Texas congressman who for a quarter century has been railing about government spending, the Fed, the overextension of American military power, the gold standard and, until recently, has been relegated to the periphery of our politics. Now, Paul, an obstetrician and midwife to a movement, is suddenly front and center, though not exactly occupying the center of our politics. Which may be why, well before 7:30 on a recent morning, several hundred of Nashua’s respectables — there were so many gray suits in the ballroom of the Marriott Courtyard that you could have held a Jos. A. Bank trunk show — gathered in the early chill to hear Paul talk about interest rates, the perfidy of the Fed and an economy where the overlords are suggesting that “working hard and saving is wrong.” He spoke, too, of the NASDAQ bubble, the housing bubble, the bond bubble — and with every speech (and a barrage of ads on Granite State television), he is building a Ron Paul bubble. “We spent too much, we ran up a debt, we regulated too much and then we said we can’t handle it all so we’ll depend on the Fed,” he said. There wasn’t a set of notes in sight, nor in his suit pocket. He’s given this riff for
I’m sitting on a couch at the Family Promise day center, two little girls tucked close beside. I’m reading aloud the Dr. Seuss classic “And to Think That I Saw It On Mulberry Street.” I’m glad for this couch, this island of comfort for these two giggling wigglers. I’m sad, mixed with mad, to think of the 29 other families that have come to our organization over the last four weeks seeking shelter, families whom we have turned away. Our capacity is firm, no more than 14 family members in whatever the current configuration of mothers and fathers and children happens to be. That’s all the meals and overnight shelter our networks of congregations and volunteers can provide, that’s the top number our van can transport, that’s the full census our limited staff can serve well. It’s a formula that works to provide transitional emergency housing in 170 Family Promise affiliates nationwide. It’s a different story across the way at Lawrence Community Shelter. There is no room at that inn, no room there for a couch and quiet for reading rhymes. At LCS, 16 children currently sleep shoulder to shoulder on floor mats in a crowded common room. Three tiny babies are there, as well. The 7,700-square-foot building built for office suites now houses 75 people nightly; it is a wild and sometimes chaotic assortment of men and women and children who’ve sought shelter there as a last resort. It ought not be so. Long before our new-
ly remodeled and expanded public library opens, long before our newly funded community theater draws its curtain, years before a new rec center opens on our city’s west side, our community’s only emergency shelter must have a decent new home in Franklin Business Center. Dr. Seuss submitted the manuscript for Mulberry Street, his first children’s book, more than 35 times before he found a publisher. LCS has considered and been denied almost as many new locations. But finally, after years of noisy and Dinsdale ugly not-in-my-backyard disputes, a last-minute heroic bid by Douglas County overcame opposition by Franklin Business Park owners and gave the shelter the green light to purchase the property. Now the only remaining barrier to a smooth move by LCS is financial. Unfortunately time is short and there’s a lot on the line if a major deadline isn’t met. The shelter’s next giant trial is to meet a Mabee Foundation matching grant challenge due, ironically, on Thanksgiving Day. As of late last week, LCS still needed to raise $373,000 to ensure receipt of Mabee funds and close the deal on the new shelter. Failing to raise the remaining matching money would be a major setback for our community, the loss of $540,000 in Mabee funds. Shelter trustees and fundraisers have been
working hard and fast, raising $1,975,000 in gifts and pledges toward a total campaign goal of $2,725,000. Meeting the Mabee challenge will mean a major victory, a completed campaign. LCS’s new location will be a different animal from the inadequate stopgap at 10th and Kentucky streets. The new LCS will be licensed to serve 125 people and will allow private rooms for case managers to work as well as real beds, security and safety. It will also provide space for LCS’s back-to-work program and a dog biscuit bakery business that has more demand than it can currently accommodate. It’s been years since our Community Commission on Homelessness, with the unanimous approval of our City Commission and mayor, approved a housing vision that necessarily begins with a single emergency shelter. From there individuals must work to the best of their abilities to move forward into temporary transitional housing, then to traditional transitional housing and on to either permanent supportive housing or plain old home (sweet!) permanent housing. We can’t guarantee success for all. We can’t fix the game so everyone succeeds. But we can do our best to offer a safe and decent square one, both for LCS and for all its guests. A new shelter will finally provide, as the organization’s tagline promises, “a path to a positive future.” Let’s go there. Now. Now that’d be a story no one could beat, a path even brighter than Mulberry Street. — Katherine Dinsdale is a founding board member of Family Promise of Lawrence.

Tribal Seeds Hailing from San Diego, Calif., Tribal Seeds is the perfect remedy to the recent bout of crummy weather. The reggae band doesn’t fuse elements of its music with hip hop, jazz, polka or any other genre; it’s just straight-up positive music, sunny outlook and laid-back sentiment. There’s something refreshing about a genre band that doesn’t feel the need to incorporate a dozen influences but instead focuses on delivering a pure rendition of its chosen art form. But if you don’t want to wax artistic, don’t. Just go and enjoy some quality reggae from a group of dedicated musicians. Tonight’s show starts at 8, and tickets are $13. The show is all-ages.

Last April, when former Kansas University defensive back Chris Harris tuned in to watch the final few rounds of the 2011 NFL Draft, he didn’t really expect to hear his name called. It wasn’t. But that turned out to be a good thing for Harris, whose agent then was able to shop around and find the best fit for the Bixby, Okla., native. With Denver showing interest throughout the spring and welcoming in a new head coach who placed emphasis on defense and versatility, the Broncos seemed to be Harris’ best option. Once the lockout ended, Harris signed a free-agent deal and went to work. Nobody knew then that the 5-foot-10, 190-pound cornerback would go on to become a starter on defense and lead the team in tackles in back-to-back weeks during his rookie season. Sunday, in his second straight start at nickel back for the Broncos, Harris finished with a teambest 11 tackles and also snagged a crucial interception that helped propel the Broncos to a 38-24 upset of the Oakland Raiders. The week before, in a blowout loss to Detroit, Harris finished with a team-high nine tackles. “It felt good, definitely,” Harris told denverbroncos.com after Sunday’s game. “I’ve been
Nice pick ————
Ex-Jayhawk DB Chris Harris proving to be good free-agent addition by Broncos working so hard in practice and getting interceptions in practice, and I’m just glad that one finally came my way.” Fellow rookie Von Miller, the No. 2 pick in last year’s draft out of Texas A&M, acknowledged the effort of his Big 12 teammate after the game.
“Chris Harris really had a big play today,” Miller said. “He’s been ballin’ in practice all week, ballin’ in games, and it was just good to see him get a pick today, too.” Although Saturdays have not gone well for Harris’ former KU teammates, many have taken joy
ally, I just didn’t know it was gonna be this soon. He did an amazing job.” Added KU coach Turner Gill: “It definitely surprises me, as far as him being the leading tackler and doing all those things. But I knew he would have an opportunity to be able to play at the next level, and I’m glad to see it. He is a very, very football-smart guy, a physical player who has some good skills, and he’s making the best of his opportunity. It’s good representation for the University of Kansas.” Harris, a four-year starter at KU and member of the Jayhawks’ 2008 Orange Bowl team, has played in all eight of Denver’s games this season. He ranks fifth on the team with 30 tackles, third in pass break-ups, with three, and is one of two former Jayhawks currently starting in the NFL. Tampa Bay cornerback Aqib Talib is the other. A couple of other Jayhawks in the NFL also had big days Sunday. San Diego safety Darrell Stuckey recorded a special-teams tackle and recovered an onside kick for the Chargers, and Tampa Bay wide receiver Dezmon Briscoe hauled in a career-best 46-yard reception in the Bucs’ loss at New Orleans. Harris and the Broncos (3-5) travel to Kansas City, Mo., Sunday to take on the Chiefs (4-4) at Arrowhead Stadium.

FORT HAYS STATE VS. KANSAS What: Exhibition basketball When: 7 tonight Where: Allen Fieldhouse Television: KSMO/ CBS (cable channels 3, 13, 203, 213)
Thomas Robinson didn’t feel comfortable wearing a shirt, vest and jeans —in lieu of his Kansas University jersey No. 0 — to Tuesday’s exhibition basketball game against Pittsburg State. “It definitely was hard for me to watch. I can’t go in a gym without playing,” said Robinson, relegated to cheerleading duty in casual attire because of a hyperextended left knee. “I was more on my feet for the first half of the game than me being mad about not playing,” added the 6-foot-10, 237-pound junior power forward, who had a lot to applaud in the second half of KU’s 84-55 victory.
Still not 100 percent, Robinson nonetheless will be available for duty in exhibition game No. 2, today’s 7 p.m. home contest against Fort Hays State. “I could have played last week. I practiced two days after it happened. I just didn’t feel it was right to Robinson play. It was bruised. I didn’t feel it was smart to rush it,” said Robinson. He was injured at practice on Oct. 27, when he ran into teammate Travis Releford while retrieving a cross-court pass in a scrimmage situation.
Robinson at first feared the injury was serious. “It was scary, real scary. It was more of a panic attack on my part more than anything else,” Robinson said. “Two seconds after, I started panicking. If I hear anything make a noise (in knee), I’m going to panic, but I’m all right. It was my first scare here, hopefully the last one.” KU coach Bill Self said Robinson has been practicing, thus is able to play during the game. “He’s probably 90 percent. He’s wearing a brace, and the training staff says that he should be OK,” Self said. “We’re probably going to keep him in the brace a little bit longer. I think
he needs to get out there. He needs the reps, too. He needs to see the ball go in the hole. “It’ll be nice to have Thomas in there so we can kind of see how things are going to play out with having our best presence in there.” KU junior center Jeff Withey hasn’t missed any practice time since suffering a left ankle sprain in the first half of the Pitt State game — the exhibition in which he had a triple-double (18 points, 12 rebounds and 10 blocks) “I’ve been getting a lot of treatment. Our training staff has gotten it down a lot from what it was. It’s black and blue now, Please see HOOPS, page 3B
Scoring runs the rage in open-throttle Big 12 By Luke Meredith Associated Press Sports Writer
It’s often said that basketball is a game of runs. In the Big 12 these days, so is football. The nation’s most explosive offensive league has seen a number of games turn on a big scoring spurt, a trend highlighted by No. 2 Oklahoma State’s wild 5245 win over No. 17 Kansas State on Saturday night. The Cowboys (9-0, 6-0 Big 12) opened a 14-0 lead, which in a league like the Big Ten might seem insurmountable. The Wildcats (7-2, 4-2) then reeled off 24 points, only to watch Oklahoma State score the next 20. Oh, and all that came before a fourth quarter that saw the two combine for 32 points.

KU soccer gets bid to NCAAs J-W Staff Reports
For the fifth time in program history, Kansas University’s soccer team will play in the NCAA Tournament. The Jayhawks will host Georgia in a first-round NCAA game at noon Sunday at the Jayhawk Soccer Complex. Kansas will make its first appearance in the tournament since 2008 and fifth in the 15-year history of the program. The Jayhawks (11-8-1) finished seventh in the Big 12 Conference this season. At the Big 12 Championship last week, KU fell in penalty kicks to No. 2 seed and eventual champion Texas A&M following a 3-3 tie after two overtime periods. “I’m really excited for the players,” said KU coach Mark Francis, who is 4-4 all-time in the NCAA Tournament, all at KU. “They deserve to go to the tournament, and I’m extremely happy for them more than anything. They’re a fun group that has done everything we have asked of them.” The winner of the KUGeorgia contest will play the winner of top-seeded DukeRadford on Nov. 18. Georgia earned an at-large bid after going 12-6-2 in regular-season play. The Bulldogs lead the all-time series with KU, 2-0. The teams last met on Aug. 29, 2010, when Georgia defeated the Jayhawks, 5-0.

Royals trade Cabrera for LHP Sanchez KANSAS CITY, MO. (AP) â€” The Royals traded outfielder Melky Cabrera to the San Francisco Giants for left-hander Jonathan Sanchez on Monday, upgrading their rotation and clearing the way for hotshot prospect Lorenzo Cain to get a chance in center field. It was the second significant trade involving a starter this offseason. The Braves shipped Derek Lowe to the Indians last week.
The Royals also received Double-A pitcher Ryan Verdugo in the deal. With a young lineup and plenty of talent still in the minor league system, Royals general manager Dayton Moore was willing to part with Cabrera to fill his biggest need: starting pitching. The subject of trade speculation for several years, Sanchez threw a no-hitter on July 10, 2009,
against San Diego. Only an error by third baseman Juan Uribe kept it from being a perfect game. â€œHeâ€™s a very dynamic left-handed pitcher,â€? Moore said. â€œHis hit rates are very low, his strikeout rates are very high, his walks arenâ€™t something weâ€™re overly excited about, but at the same time heâ€™s very young. Heâ€™s somebody our scouts feel is a breakout candidate moving forward into 2012.â€?
Despite the emergence of former No. 1 draft pick Luke Hochevar and rookie Danny Duffy, the Royalsâ€™ starters still logged the third-fewest innings of any staff in the AL. Their combined 4.45 ERA was also the third-worst in the AL. Sanchez struggled most of this season, partly due to a case of biceps tendinitis, going 4-7 with a 4.26 ERA before missing the final month due to a left ankle sprain.

Paterno should pay for failure
Penn State scandal touches revered coach
By Tara Sullivan The Record (Hackensack N.J.)
Joe Paterno escaped the lawâ€™s long arm because legally, he did the right thing. Morally and ethically, however, Paterno failed. And now, as the most public face of Penn State, Paterno should pay for those failings with the job that has defined him for 46 years. Whether itâ€™s today, Saturday following the seasonâ€™s final home game or at the end of a season in which his nationally ranked football team is sure to reach another bowl game, Paterno must be finished coaching the Nittany Lions. Nearing his 86th birthday and long accustomed to calls for an overdue retirement, Paterno has no choice now but to surrender the vision of a stately ride into the sunset in exchange for a sad retreat into shame. There is no other acceptable scenario for a program and a man built on the premise of â€œSuccess with Honor,â€? no stronger public statement to make that the university is ready to clean house, start over and change the culture of an institution that didnâ€™t merely harbor an alleged sexual predator for years, but was complicit in allowing the monster to further his secret reign of terror on young, defenseless boys. If prosecutors are correct, Jerry Sandusky is the true villain here, the onetime Penn State defensive coordinator, alleged pedophile and alleged child rapist who was charged Saturday with sexually abusing eight boys during a 15-year period. But the sickening truth to emerge from the 23page grand jury report released over the weekend is how plainly Sandusky could have been stopped, if only someone at Penn State had the courage, conviction or character to report him to the police. Paterno chose to relay only to his immediate superior what heâ€™d been told in 2002 about a naked Sandusky with a young boy in the shower, a legally justifiable move that freed the iconic coach from the criminal tentacles now suffocating Penn Stateâ€™s very existence, tentacles that already have ensnared Sandusky and forced athletic director Tim Curley and senior vice president Gary Schultz to resign their positions Monday. But once you hear that flimsy defense â€” â€œLegally, he did the right thingâ€? â€” how can you not ask Paterno the next question? Did he do the right thing morally? Did he do the right thing ethically? After a news conference held by state officials Monday, itâ€™s clear we are not the only ones looking for those answers. Paterno will face those difficult questions today, when his regularly scheduled weekly appointment with the press takes place in the same football halls where Sandusky once roamed. But forget Saturdayâ€™s upcoming senior day against Nebraska; forget football. Reporters from across the nation and across the news spectrum are expected to descend on UnHappy Valley, and they will be relentless in their quest to understand: What did Paterno know, and when did he know it? Civilized society demands that we protect our children above all, that we keep our most defenseless segment of our population free from sexual predators, free from this insidious form of abuse that steals childhoods forever. Though we cannot reverse abuse that has happened, we can offer help to the victims, we can alert the authorities, we can do our best to prevent future victims. We can do that only by ripping away the secrecy, and shining the light on the cockroaches and exposing them to the fullest extent of our laws. At Penn State, the shroud of protection was layered over the university instead, the energy of officials was spent on saving the universityâ€™s image at the expense of a childâ€™s safety and innocence. Mythology over integrity, a shameful choice. There were many who failed at Penn State, so many who should be swept out of their jobs while a once-proud university turns toward a new era of transparency and truth. Paterno, the schoolâ€™s must public face, has to be among them.

Big East meets with BYU PROVO, UTAH â€” The Big East has had discussions with BYU about giving up its football independence and joining the rebuilding conference.

Mendenhall said Monday during his weekly news conference. â€œI trust our athletic director and President Samuelson to deal with all of that. I have been informed along the way. At some point there will be a decision with what our intentions will be.â€? BYU is in its first year as a football independent after leaving the Mountain West Conference.

Kansas v. Fort Hays St. 7 p.m. College Football
HARRISBURG, PA. â€” Time and again, questions about an alleged cover-up of a sex abuse scandal at Penn State circled back to one name: Joe Paterno. Major-college footballâ€™s oldest, winningest and perhaps most revered coach was engulfed Monday in a growing furor involving former defensive coordinator and one-time heir apparent Jerry Sandusky, who was indicted on charges of sexually abusing eight boys over 15 years. The Pennsylvania state police commissioner said Paterno fulfilled his legal requirement when he relayed to university administrators that a graduate assistant had seen Sandusky attacking a young boy in the teamâ€™s locker room shower in 2002. But the commissioner also questioned whether Paterno had a moral responsibility to do more. On the Happy Valley campus and in the surrounding town of State College, some were even asking whether the 84-year-old coach should step down after 46 seasons on the sidelines. Two Penn State officials, Senior Vice President Gary Schultz and athletic director Tim Curley, surrendered on charges that they failed to alert police to the complaint about Sandusky. Schultz and Curley are also charged with lying to the state grand jury that indicted Sandusky. Both stepped down from their posts Sunday, Curley taking a temporary leave and Schultz retiring. They appeared Monday in a Harrisburg courtroom, where a judge set bail at $75,000. They werenâ€™t required to enter pleas. Pennsylvania Attorney General Linda Kelly said Paterno is not a target of the investigation into how the school handled the accusations. But she refused to say the same for the university president, Graham Spanier. â€œAll I can say is again, Iâ€™m limited to whatâ€™s contained in the presentment, and that this is an ongoing investigation,â€? Kelly said. State police Commissioner Frank Noonan said that although Paterno may have met his legal requirement to report suspected abuse by Sandusky, â€œsomebody has to question about what I would consider the moral requirements for a human being that knows of sexual things that are taking place with a child.â€? He added: â€œI think you have the moral responsibility, anyone. Not whether youâ€™re a football coach or a university president or the guy sweeping the building. I think you have a moral responsibility to call us.â€?

Ex-champ Frazier dies after cancer bout By Bill Dwyre Los Angeles Times
Joe Frazier, the heavyweight boxing champion who in 1971 became the first fighter to defeat Muhammad Ali, then lost two epic rematches including a ferocious battle known as the “Thrilla in Manila,” died Monday night. He was 67. Smokin’ Joe, as he was known, died in Philadelphia, said his manager, Leslie Wolff. He had liver cancer. It was a golden age of heavyweight boxing in the 1970s, when fight fans filled massive arenas and boosted the sport’s television ratings to watch the likes of Ali and Frazier and George Foreman, Jerry Quarry and Ken Norton. In his 37 professional fights, Frazier won 32 times — 27 by knockout — and lost only four, with one draw. But he never really accepted his 1-2 record against Ali. “I whupped him three times,” Frazier said many times over the years. They met for the first time on March 8, 1971, in New York’s Madison Square Garden, with each fighter guaranteed $2.5 million. Ali, then 31-0, had been stripped of his heavyweight titles when, as Cassius Clay, he refused to be inducted into the military af-

Arizona wins opener TUCSON, ARIZ. (AP) — Kyle Fogg scored 16 points, Jesse Perry had a double-double, and No. 16 Arizona pulled away in the second half to open the season with a 73-64 victory over Valparaiso on Monday night. Arizona had some jittery moments in the first half before running away behind its defense in the second. The Wildcats held Valparaiso without a field goal during an opening 16-3 run, with Jordin Mayes scoring eight points to put Arizona up 15. Perry finished with 14 points and 10 rebounds, while freshman Nick Johnson had 14 points and six assists for the Wildcats. Valparaiso got off to a solid start in coach Bryce Drew’s debut before fading against Arizona’s pressure. Kevin Van Wijk and Ryan Broekhoff had 18 points each for the Crusaders, who have lost 34 straight games against Top 25 teams since Drew beat Mississippi with a buzzer beater in the 1998 NCAA tournament. Arizona completed a quick turnaround last season, coming within a few seconds of reaching the Final Four after missing the NCAA tournament for the first time in a quarter century the year before. Arizona got off to a rough start against Valparaiso, turning it over three times while missing its first three shots — all by freshman Josiah Turner on difficult drives to the basket. Leading by just two at halftime after playing so-so at both ends, the Wildcats quickly went up 15 by forcing Valparaiso into turnovers and difficult shots. Valparaiso had 12 of its 18 turnovers in the second half and shot 5 of 20 from 3-point range overall.

IN THIS PHOTO FROM JAN. 28, 1974, MUHAMMAD ALI, LEFT, and Joe Frazier fight in a 12-round non-title fight at Madison Square Garden in New York. Frazier died Monday after battling liver cancer. ter being drafted for the Vietnam War. Frazier, at 26-0, had captured the title of undisputed heavyweight champion in 1970 with a technical knockout of Jimmy Ellis. It was a brutal battle, rated by many as the “fight of the century” and considered the best boxing match of all time
at any weight. When Frazier knocked Ali down in the 15th and final round and won on points, both received rave reviews for their performances. Both also went immediately to the hospital. Before they could be paired again in the ring, Frazier defended his title four
times, most notably on Jan. 22, 1973, against Foreman in Kingston, Jamaica. Even the burly, fearsomelooking Foreman, who was 4 inches taller, admitted that the thought of getting into the ring with the brawling fireplug Frazier frightened him.
Self reiterates MU stance By Gary Bedore email@example.com
Kansas University basketball coach Bill Self was asked again Monday about what KU’s fans think about Missouri leaving the Big 12 for the SEC. “I don’t really talk to fans, but the ones that have talked to me, they couldn’t care less,” he said. “Our fans aren’t going to determine what we do, but Missouri isn’t going to determine anything we do either (as far as scheduling games in the future). I said this yesterday. This isn’t being critical. We wish them the best. I hope that they’re happy where they’re at. There are no ill feelings about them leaving. This isn’t like Oklahoma or Texas leaving, either — a school that could break the league up. I’m happy with our league and wish they wanted to be a part of it, but I’m not going to cry because they’re leaving at all. They’re doing what they want to do, but certainly when they do that, then people should understand that we get to do what we want to do, too. I don’t think anyone in our administration would be too excited about playing them right now at all after this year. We still get two more times to play them. That will be good.” O

I’m trying to build off that and continue with that momentum and bring that style of play into this next game.” O

“Every time he swung at me,” Foreman said, “it scared five years out of my life.” Nevertheless, in the second round, Foreman caught Frazier with a right uppercut that sent the fighter from Philadelphia to the canvas. Sitting ringside for the boxing telecast was announcer Howard Cosell, by now internationally known for his boisterous and opinionated broadcast style. When Frazier, the champion, hit the deck, Cosell stole the moment and the show with his dramatic bellowing of the call: “DOWN GOES FRAZIER! DOWN GOES FRAZIER! DOWN GOES FRAZIER!” It was as if he was calling an airplane crash rather than a boxing match. It not only stuck with Frazier, who got to his feet too late to avoid being counted out, but it is a mocking call to this day among boxing fans for all such spectacular knockdowns. After Foreman took Frazier’s title away, Frazier fought Ali twice more, losing in a more subdued battle in the Garden in 1974, when Ali kept Frazier away more effectively with holding and clinching, and a year later, after Ali had gotten his title back by beating Foreman in Zaire (now the Democratic Republic of Congo).
It was for this third match, on Oct. 1, 1975, in Quezon City, the Philippines, that Ali predicted he would have an easy time with Frazier. In the pre-fight promotions for what was dubbed the “Thrilla in Manila,” Ali called Frazier an “Uncle Tom” and a “gorilla” and repeatedly ridiculed him. The fight was anything but easy, and Ali later likened it to being “the closest thing to dying.” By the 14th round, both having hit and been hit too many times to count, Frazier’s eyes were nearly swollen shut and he couldn’t see Ali’s punches, even though he had stood in and flailed away for several rounds right through his near-blindness. Finally, after the 14th round, his veteran trainer, Eddie Futch, over loud protests from Frazier, threw in the towel to end the fight. “Sit down, son,” Futch told Frazier. “It’s all over. Nobody will ever forget what you did here today.” Frazier and Ali had fought 41 rounds and served up a boxing trilogy for the ages. Frazier fought only two more times. In 1976, he lost to Foreman in a fifth-round knockout, announced his retirement, then finished for good in 1981 after a 10-round draw with Floyd Cummings.
sions, will miss the game, meaning freshman Naadir Tharpe could play 30-plus minutes again. Tharpe had eight assists and nine turnovers to go with 12 points in his KU debut. “Definitely my turnovers I need to improve on and being much more of a general out there, talking much more on the court,” Tharpe said. “Even though I’m a freshman, with Tyshawn and Elijah not being able to play, I need to step up to the plate. I’m going to have to be able to lead the team much better than I did in the first game.” KU coach Self is seeking continued progress. “I’d like to see our newcomers maybe play less tight,” he said. “Naadir (Tharpe) was tight the other day, Justin (Wesley) was tight, and Kevin (Young) was tight. I’d like to see those guys maybe play a little looser so we can see what they can do. I just want to see total improvement. I don’t think anybody played that well the other day. Statistically we were fine, other than turnovers (23). We need to do a much better job.” KU will open for real on Friday against Towson. Tipoff for that game is also 7 p.m. in Allen Fieldhouse.

but I’m practicing. There are no excuses,” Withey said. He’s elated that Robinson will join him in the frontcourt tonight. “We’ve got one of our best rebounders back. Things will go smoother, I feel, with Thomas back,” Withey said. “They (opponents) will be looking at him, probably double-teaming him. It will be easier for me to get offensive rebounds. They’ll be focused on boxing him out. Maybe I can slip in there and get extra rebounds. It will make my job easier with him back.” Robinson also likes the idea of a 7-footer patrolling the paint. “I’m going to need him more than anything this year so he can take the load off me,” Robinson said of Withey. “Justin (Wesley) and Kevin (Young) are going to need to come in and give us good minutes. Really, no one can afford to slack off, so I expect their best every night.” Guards Tyshawn Taylor and Elijah Johnson, who are serving two-game suspen-

Is there a compromise? — Confused Senior Dear Confused: Alice did a nice thing, only to discover that the result is harder to deal with than she anticipated. Could you arrange your workdays so they don’t coincide with your daughter’s? Could you drive the hour commute some of the time so you aren’t staying with her for two weeks every summer? Is it possible to find another part-time or temp job that will earn you the same amount of money? Talk to Alice, and see whether the two of you can come up with a way to make this work. This job isn’t worth alienating your child. Dear Annie: My husband was given up for adoption
History Channel presents ‘Vietnam in HD’ Just in time for Veterans Day, “Vietnam in HD” (8 p.m., History, nightly through Thursday) offers a six-hour history of that war. Culled from home movies and unseen hours of color film, the footage has been upgraded to high definition and is narrated by a cast of notable actors voicing the words and memories of men and women who were there. We see Barry Romo as a young soldier in vintage footage. Then we see him as he is now. His recollections are presented in his own voice, which then gives way to a voice-over from actor Adrian Grenier (”Entourage”). It’s an effective technique, repeated for more than a dozen participants. The restored footage and storytelling technique liberate the era from some of the cinematic clichés that have defined it over the decades. It’s also a counter-narrative to the hackneyed view of the 1960s as one long love-in. We’re reminded here that, at least in the beginning, the war was seen as a necessary burden and was popular, even among those facing the draft. Lost in many pop histories of the decade is that the No. 1 single for 1966 was “The Ballad of the Green Beret” by Sgt. Barry Sadler. All the same, it’s impossible to enter this six-hour experience and not feel as if you’ve returned to a slow-motion nightmare. It’s hard to even hear phrases like “search and destroy,” ‘‘body count,” ‘‘Rolling Thunder,” “strategic hamlet,” ‘‘Vietnamization” and “Peace With Honor” without feeling a little queasy all over again. ‘‘History in HD” is an ambitious and honorable project well worth watching. But its very quality has become rare on the History Channel. How do you convince a young student that the events depicted in “HD” were real and had powerful consequences when it is broadcast by the same network that hypes “Ancient Aliens” and devotes hours to programs on zombies, vampires and other popular supernatural pap? I know I’ve become a bit of a nag on the subject of the History Channel. Get used to it. TV-themed DVDs available today include “Mr. Magoo — The Television Collection (1960-77),” a collection of 11 DVDs from the era when laughing at the nearsighted was considered fun!

Dear Annie: I am a retired 70-year-old single senior and live on a fixed income. I try to be self-sufficient so I won’t have to depend on my children for anything. They have their own financial issues. Two years ago, my daughter, “Alice,” asked if I would like to earn some extra money by helping at her workplace in the summers. I agreed, as it is a job I once did many years ago. I only work 10 to 12 days. It’s an hour away from my home, so when I’m working, I stay with Alice and her family. I have some major expenses coming up and asked the boss for more hours. My request was granted. I also told the boss I do not want to infringe on my daughter’s hours and was reassured I would not. However, when I discussed this with Alice, she told me she doesn’t like working with me. She feels she always has to look out for me and also has to watch what she says. She added that my staying with her puts a strain on her family. Annie, I am healthy and can work circles around most of the crew. I understand that Alice has to watch her conversations when I’m there, but I think she could deal with that for those few days a year. I drive separately to work and take lunch alone to give her space. I told Alice she should be happy that I am able to pay

Cutler rallies Bears to 30-24 win SCOREBOARD PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Matt Forte bounced back from two costly turnovers and Jay Cutler rallied the resilient Bears. Cutler threw a go-ahead 5-yard TD pass to Earl Bennett in the fourth quarter, Forte ran for 133 yards and the Bears beat the Philadelphia Eagles 30-24 on Monday night. It was a crushing loss for Michael Vick and the Eagles (3-5), who blew a fourthquarter lead for the fourth time this season. Jeremy Maclin fell down and was tackled at the Bears 30 after a 9-yard catch on fourthand-10 with just under two minutes left. The defending NFC East champions trail the New York Giants (6-2) by three games. Chicago (5-3) won its third straight game, but remains third in the NFC North behind Green Bay (8-0) and Detroit (6-2). After LeSean McCoy’s 33yard touchdown run following Forte’s second fumble gave the Eagles a 24-17 lead in the third quarter, the Bears answered with 13 straight points. Robbie Gould kicked a 38-yard field goal to cut it to 24-20, and then Chicago’s defense forced a punt after three plays. The Bears drove 51 yards for the go-ahead score with Cutler tossing a 5-yard TD pass to Bennett over Asante Samuel for a 27-24 lead. The Eagles reached the Bears 42 on their next drive. On fourth-and-6, punter Chas Henry bounced a pass to a wide-open Colt Anderson and Chicago took over. Henry spent a lot of time throwing passes to long snapper Jon Dorenbos on the sideline in the second quarter, presumably warming up for the fake punt. He got his chance and badly underthrew the pass. The Bears took advantage.
KANSAS FOOTBALL NOTEBOOK Gill talks about MU Sunday, after weeks of delaying, Missouri University officially announced its intention to join the SEC in 2012. Monday, on the Big 12 coaches teleconference, Kansas football coach Turner Gill echoed the comments shared by men’s basketball coach Bill Self, athletic director Sheahon Zenger and Chancellor Bernadette Gray-Little. “I don’t see us playing them in the future,” Gill said of Mizzou. “I think the rivalry between Kansas and Missouri would be something I think belongs in the Big 12 Conference.” Gov. Sam Brownback also weighed in with his thoughts Monday and said he was sorry to see the Tigers go but that he didn’t think the loss of MU would harm the Big 12. “It will ultimately be the strongest conference in the country,” Brownback said of the Big 12. Baylor opens as favorite When Baylor comes to Memorial Stadium for a 1 p.m. kickoff Saturday, it will mark the ninth-straight game in which the KU football team will take the field as the underdog. The Bears (5-3 overall, 2-3 Big 12) opened as 17.5-point favorites over the Jayhawks (2-7, 0-6) and, as of late Monday, were already up to 20-point favorites in some spots. This week’s match-up with Baylor will not be televised and will be the last home game in the careers of 15 KU seniors. KU-A&M kickoff set KU’s final road game of the season, Nov. 19 at Texas A&M in College Station, Texas, will kick off at 11 a.m. and be shown on Fox Sports Net, school officials announced Monday. That game will mark the eighth time this season that KU has been on television and the fourth time on FSN. — MATT TAIT

PHILADELPHIA RUNNING BACK LESEAN MCCOY (25) IS TACKLED by Chicago cornerback Tim Jennings in the first half. The Bears won, 30-24, Monday in Philadelphia. A pass interference penalty on Nnamdi Asomugha at the Eagles 7 prolonged the drive. The defense stiffened and Gould hit a 22-yarder to extend the lead to 30-24. Trent Cole knocked the ball loose from Forte following a 6-yard run midway through the third quarter, and Mike Patterson recovered at the Bears 41. Forte was originally ruled down, but the play was overturned when the Eagles challenged. Two plays later, McCoy sprinted down the left side and into the end zone to score for the eighth straight game, tying Hall of Famer Steve Van Buren’s club record. In a matchup featuring two of the game’s best running backs, Forte outplayed McCoy except for the two fumbles. McCoy had 71 yards rushing. The Eagles tied it at 17 on Ronnie Brown’s 4-yard TD run that capped an 80-yard secondhalf opening drive. The TD was Brown’s first since joining the Eagles. Brown was one of six former Pro Bowl play-
ers acquired by Philadelphia in the offseason. He hadn’t made much of a contribution and was traded to Detroit last month only to have the deal voided because Jerome Harrison didn’t pass a physical. The Bears took a 17-10 halftime lead on Marion Barber’s 2-yard TD run after a costly fumble by DeSean Jackson. Jackson, a Pro Bowl punt returner, was stripped by Corey Graham and the Bears recovered at the Eagles 9 with a minute left in the second quarter. A roughing-the-passer penalty on Jason Babin gave Chicago a first down at the Eagles 2 after Cutler threw an incomplete pass on third down. Barber then ran in from the 2. Cutler threw a 5-yard TD pass to Matt Spaeth and Gould kicked a 51-yard field goal to help the Bears build an early 10-0 advantage. After struggling badly against the run the first five weeks, the Eagles improved in the past two games. They allowed just 127 yards rushing combined in wins against Washington and Dallas.

Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops, who has been on both sides of big runs this season, believes they have as much to do with strong defense as a powerful offense. “In that run in the third quarter of the last couple of games, the defense has come up with three-and-outs and given the ball back in good field position or come with one play and a turnover, and you’ve got the ball right back and the offense strikes right back,” Stoops said. “I think, in my eyes, it’s more the team really complementing one another offensively and defensively.” Texas Tech (5-4, 2-4) has been on the wrong end of runs in each of its last two games, a big reason why its season has taken a turn for the worse. The Red Raiders stunned Oklahoma 41-38 on Oct. 22 by reeling off 24 points in less than 15 minutes. It lost its next two: Texas Tech let Iowa State score the first 21 points, and Texas raced out to a 31-6 halftime lead in a 5220 win. Up next for the Red Raiders is Oklahoma State, which is averaging 50 points a game. Cowboys coach Mike Gundy credited his staff for keeping his players focused during the Kansas State shootout. “I thought our assistant coaches did a tremendous job of keeping their composure,” Gundy said. “When they handle things well like that game Saturday night — it was roller coaster, big play after big play, four or five or six of them back to back to

OKLAHOMA STATE WIDE RECEIVER JUSTIN BLACKMON, LEFT, celebrates with teammate Michael Harrison following Blackmon’s fourth-quarter touchdown against Kansas State in a 52-45 victory over the Wildcats on Saturday in Stillwater, Okla. back — they did a nice job of making adjustments and handling the pressure.” Texas A&M (5-4, 3-3), once considered a contender for the Big 12 title, sits in the middle of the pack partly because its defense let the Cowboys run up 27 straight points, Missouri score 17 points in half a quarter and the Sooners score four straight touchdowns last week. The Aggies play at Kansas State on Saturday. “You’ve got to handle the tempo. You’ve got to get your calls in fast enough. You’ve got to be able to make adjustments to multiple formations that we get,” Sherman said. “In a lot of these offenses, there’s a lot of movement and things going on, so you have to match up on that. It’s tough.” Of course, high-powered
offenses are nothing new in the Big 12, whose identity has long been defined by shootouts. Five Big 12 teams are in the top 20 nationally in scoring offense, led by Oklahoma State in second. TCU, which will join the Big 12 next season, ranks eighth and West Virginia, which hopes to do the same, is 13th with 38.2 points a game. Only two teams, Iowa State (5-4, 2-4) and Kansas (2-7, 0-6), are averaging less than 30 points in Big 12 games. “You can’t start slow in this league. If you start slow, it’s almost impossible to come from behind,” Texas Tech coach Tommy Tuberville said. “It’s not a necessity to start fast, but if you do start slow, you better be good on offense because it’s just so hard to catch up.”
Texas A&M RB Michael out for season COLLEGE STATION, TEXAS (AP) — Texas A&M running back Christine Michael will miss the rest of the season after tearing the anterior cruciate ligament in one of his knees. The junior was injured in Saturday’s 41-25 loss to No. 7 Oklahoma. He has 899 yards

year where Michael has had a season-ending injury after he broke his leg last October. Sherman expects Cyrus Gray, who has split carries with Michael, to step up with Michael out. Gray has 733 yards rushing with seven touchdowns this season.
