Church leaders: Immigration reform for feds, not states By Scott Rothschild

TOPEKA — Religious leaders on Wednesday urged the Kansas Legislature to leave immigration reform to the federal government, and they said they supported allowing illegal im-

migrants to gain some kind of legal status. The Most Rev. Joseph Naumann, archbishop of the Archdiocese of Kansas City in Kansas, and Bishop Scott Jones, Bishop of the Kansas Area of the United Methodist Church, said the vast majority of illegal immigrants

are hard-working, God-loving and family-oriented. “Our immigration policies are so restrictive. It makes it relatively impossible to legally immigrate to this country,” Naumann said. “There have to be ways to help them achieve legal status here, if not citizenship,

perhaps a worker program that will allow them to achieve legal status.” At the news conference, Naumann and Jones were asked by Renee Slinkard, of the Tea Party Immigration Coalition, why they would want to make it easier for illegal immigrants to gain

citizenship “when we are faced with all this terrorism, crime, human trafficking.” Naumann said that “bad actors” should be deported but that most illegal immigrants have no “ill intent.” He added Please see CHURCH, page 2A Kobach

Sara Sneath told the group of third-, fourth- and fifth-grade girls what it was like being a corporal in the U.S. Marine Corps. And, she said, because her job working in security for a U.S. embassy required her to carry pepper spray, she had to get sprayed in the face with it, and then complete an obstacle course. “Whoa,” one of the girls said. “Did you have to use it on anyone?” another girl wanted to know. “I never had to,” Sneath said. “Talking is a really good way of making people calm down. Even better than spraying them in the face.” Sneath was presenting at the Strong Girls program Wednesday at

TOPEKA — Kansas University students will pay more for room and board under a proposed increase in student housing and food service. And KU maintenance and service workers and law enforcement would get a raise under another proposal. The Kansas Board of Regents will take up the issues during its monthly meeting next week. The room-and-board proposal would increase the yearly rate by $178, from $7,080 to $7,258, which equals 2.5 percent. That increase is for a typical double occupancy room and board contract. All six state universities have submitted increases to the regents, which will discuss the matter on Wednesday and make a final decision in December. If approved, the KU proposal would take effect July 1, 2012. The proposed increases range from 1.7 percent at Wichita State to 4 percent at Pittsburg State. Kansas State’s is 3.5 percent; Emporia State, 2.6 percent; and Fort Hays State, 2.4 percent. Even with the increases, the cost of room and board at the Kansas schools would remain below the $8,194 average for public universities in the Midwest, according to a regents memo. About 4,800 students live in KU student housing. The proposed increase “will enable the housing and dining operations to continue providing exceptional on-campus living experiences, which remain a great value for the students’ dollar,” a KU memo said. On the pay raise issue, KU has proposed giving an annual raise of $525 for safety and security officers and $815 for police officers and detectives. To be eligible, employees must have satisfactory job evaluations from 2008 to 2010. KU also is proposing giving maintenance and service employees, represented by Local 1290 PE, a $500 annual raise. In addition, covered employees who have satisfactory job evaluations and no suspensions from 2008 through 2010 will get an additional $140 increase. The proposed raises, which have already been approved by employee and employer representatives, would take effect Dec. 11 if approved by the regents. — Statehouse reporter Scott Rothschild can be reached at 785-423-0668.

Judge tosses main charges against Planned Parenthood

Energy smart: The Journal-World makes the most of renewable resources.

Associated Press

OLATHE — A judge Wednesday dismissed the most serious charges against a Kansas City-area Planned Parenthood clinic accused of falsifying records and failing to follow abortion law after a prosecutor revealed that state officials had destroyed key evidence. Johnson County District Attorney Steve Howe told the judge he had no choice but to ask that 49 of 107 charges against the clinic

be dismissed because documents central to the case were destroyed. Meanwhile, authorities in the state capital of Topeka, at the request of Attorney General Derek Schmidt, plan to investigate the records shredding to determine if any laws were broken. The documents were reports on individual abortions performed in 2003, filed by Planned Parenthood’s clinic in Overland Park with the state health department, as required by law, and copies held by the attorney gen-

eral’s office under Schmidt’s predecessors. District Judge Stephen Tatum dismissed 23 felony counts of falsifying such reports, as well as 26 misdemeanor charges that the clinic had failed to maintain its own copies, as required by law. Prosecutors wanted to compare in court copies of the documents the state had with those Planned Parenthood produced later when the clinic was under investigation. Prosecutors allege the documents didn’t match, suggesting the clinic didn’t

keep proper records and created false ones when compelled to produce them. Fifty-eight misdemeanor charges Kline remain, accusing the clinic of performing illegal abortions and failing to follow a state law restricting late-term abortions. The case stems from an investigation by Phill Kline,

a Republican abortion opponent, focusing on abortion clinics when he was Kansas attorney general and later as Johnson County district attorney. A Planned Parenthood attorney said the charges always were baseless and blamed the problem with the records on Kline, who filed the criminal case in 2007. Howe disclosed last month that the health department had shredded its copies of the reports in 2005, in what Please see COURT, page 2A

BRIEFLY Man pleads no contest to multiple burglaries One of three defendants accused in a string of Eudora burglaries pleaded no contest to 11 criminal charges Wednesday, including three felonies. In July, police linked David A. Thomas, a 29-year-old Eudora resident, to 18 burglaries of vehicles and sheds along with two other Eudora residents, Leah D. Thomas, 29, and Joseph L. Klebenstein, 19. David Thomas pleaded no contest to three felony charges, including two counts of burglary of a motor vehicle and one count of burglary of a non-dwelling, and eight misdemeanors. As part of a plea agreement, Douglas County prosecutors agreed to drop eight other criminal charges against him. He is scheduled to be sentenced Dec. 13.

2 plead guilty to distributing heroin WICHITA (AP) — Two Kansas residents have pleaded guilty to distributing heroin in Wichita in a case that also involved 10 other people. The U.S. Attorney’s office says COURTS 28-year-old Patrice Chadwick, of Wichita, and 30-yearold Christopher Schneider, of Rose Hill, entered the pleas Tuesday in federal court. Chadwick admitted that in October 2010, she picked up 50 packets of heroin that another woman had left in a supermarket restroom and delivering it to a third defendant. Chadwick also admitted receiving 100 packets of heroin mailed to her from New York by another defendant in the case.


Planned Parenthood described as a routine destruction of documents. Howe said in court Wednesday that the attorney general’s office, under Democrat Steve Six, also destroyed its copies in April 2009 — 18 months after the criminal charges were filed in Johnson County. The district attorney said his office has partial copies of the same records, but they haven’t been declared authentic in the court record, and he can’t establish a proper chain of custody. “The legal hurdles are insurmountable,” Howe told Tatum. The dismissed charges alleged that Planned Parent-

In his plea, Schneider admitted delivering two bags of heroin to another woman at her workplace. Eleven of the 12 people charged in the case have pleaded guilty, while one other is awaiting trial.

Forecast: Kansas corn crop even smaller than thought The Kansas Agricultural Statistics Service forecast Associated Press on Wednesday that corn production will be 430 WICHITA — The size of the million bushels, down 5 percent from October and Kansas corn harvest is forecast down 26 percent from last year’s harvest. By Roxana Hegeman

to be even smaller than had been expected just a month ago, a new report shows. The Kansas Agricultural Statistics Service forecast on Wednesday that corn production will be 430 million bushels, down 5 percent from October and down 26 percent from last year’s harvest. Kansas farmers were getting an average 100 bushels per acre from 4.3 million acres of corn. Scaled-down expectations reflect a downward adjustment of 5 bushels per acre of average yields compared with last month. Last year, farmers were cutting 125 bushels per acre. The nation’s corn production is forecast at 12.3 billion bushels, down 1 percent from the October forecast and down 1 percent from last year. Forecasts for the size of other Kansas crops remained unchanged from last month:

Sorghum production at 129.3 million bushels, down 24 percent from last year. The state is anticipated to cut 2.35 million acres of sorghum, with an average yield of 55 bushels per acre.

The size of the soybean crop was pegged at 102.6 million bushels, down 26 percent from a year ago. Kansas is harvesting 3.8 million acres with average yields of 27 bushels per acre.

The cotton harvest was forecast at 83,000 bales, up 1 percent from last year. Growers are harvesting 67,000 acres of cotton with yields averaging 595 pounds per acre. Also on Wednesday, the Agriculture Department released its separate November world agriculture supply and

demand estimates lowering its forecast for U.S. wheat supplies by 9 million bushels based on updated production estimates. While available supplies of some types of wheat were adjusted, the projected use for wheat overall remained unchanged. Global wheat supplies were projected higher reflecting higher world production. Kansas State University economist Dan O’Brien said Wednesday’s forecast for U.S. wheat supplies of 828 million bushels — down from 837 million bushels forecast last month — was a “minor adjustment.” “Since no major adjustments were made, we are kind of steady as it goes,” he said. “It is important no changes were made.”

Missouri woman, 74, found fused to recliner in home By Heather Hollingsworth Associated Press

KANSAS CITY, MO. — A suburban Kansas City woman was left sitting in a vinyl recliner for so long that her skin had fused to the chair and she had to be pried out to be taken to a hospital after suffering an apparent stroke, authorities said. Carol F. Brown’s adult son told a state official he had left his 74-year-old mother in the chair for five days without helping her get up to use the bathroom or bathe because he was honoring her wishes to die in her Independence home, according to court documents that described the woman as a “rotting corpse that was still breathing.” Brown later died.

TOPEKA (AP) — A Topeka man who allegedly caused an accident that killed a man while he fled from police has been charged with felony first-degree murder. Shawnee County prosecutors on Tuesday charged 33-year-old Kody Shane Godfrey, who they say caused a four-vehicle accident Saturday in Topeka that killed 22-yearold Jordan Dodgen of Shawnee. Topeka police say Godfrey sped off when an officer tried to make a routine traffic stop. The pursuit lasted only about 30 seconds before Godfrey’s pickup hit cars at a Topeka CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1A intersection, killing Dodgen.

hood had failed to maintain its copies of the reports, then produced falsified versions when compelled to do so in 2006 by a judge during an ongoing investigation of abortion providers by the attorney general’s office. Planned Parenthood attorney Pedro Irigonegaray said in court that the clinic’s set of reports didn’t match the health department’s set exactly because clinic employees made hand copies, not photocopies. The information contained in each set was the same, he said. The health department shredded its copies during the administration of Gov. Kathleen Sebelius, a Democrat who supports abortion rights and who later became U.S. secretary of health and human services. Six, appointed by Sebelius in 2008 to fill a vacancy in the at-


torney general’s office, also supports abortion rights. Shawnee County Sheriff Richard Barta confirmed he is investigating the records destruction at the request of Schmidt, a Republican who defeated Six last year. Schmidt declined to comment but wrote in a letter to Barta that without an investigation, he couldn’t determine whether the attorney general’s office under Six had followed state law or its own records-destruction policies in shredding its copies of the abortion reports. Sebelius spokesman Richard Sorian said Wednesday that Sebelius “has no knowledge of the matter” and declined to comment further. Six did not return telephone messages to the Kansas City, Mo., law office where he is a partner. Irigonegaray blamed the

“It is an incredible story to me,” Independence police spokesman Tom Gentry said Wednesday. Police were contacted after Brown was taken to a hospital Oct. 27 and found to have a maggot infestation inside an open wound around her ankle, according to the court documents that said Brown’s home was “filthy with a heavy smell of bodily fluids and feces.” Brown’s son, James Owens, told an official with the Missouri Division of Senior and Disability Services that his mother had been in the chair since Oct. 23 and that he was honoring her wishes to be left to die, the documents said. Owens, who the documents said had started the application process to gain

state aid to be his mother’s caretaker, said he did give the woman tomato and chicken noodle soup. No working telephone listing for a James Owens could be found Wednesday and a number listed under Brown’s name rang unanswered. Police who searched Brown’s home took prescription drug bottles and pills, a section of the recliner and a soiled towel, court records show. Jackson County prosecutor’s office spokesman Mike Mansur said no decision will be made about possible charges until the medical examiner rules on Brown’s cause of death. “I’ve heard it could take some time,” Mansur said. “I don’t yet know how quickly it will come.”

undocumented immigrants to gain legal status. “We hope to shape a more civil conversation,” in Kansas and nationally, Jones said. Proposals to crack down on illegal immigration are likely to be raised during the legislative session that starts in January. Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach, a Republican, has been a national leader in writing controversial legislation aimed at illegal immigration in other states, such as SB 1070 in Arizona and Alabama’s new restrictions. Naumann and Jones said they hoped to meet with Kobach some time to discuss the issue with him. Contacted later by the Lawrence Journal-World, Kobach said he had read the document signed by the religious leaders and agreed with the portion that emphasized the importance of the rule of law. “There is a lot of common ground here,”

Kobach said, but added that he disagreed with providing “amnesty.” On Tuesday, the legislative champion of SB 1070 in Arizona, state Sen. Russell Pearce, was voted out of office. He was defeated by fellow Republican Jerry Lewis in a recall election that many said was a referendum on SB 1070. Benjamin Johnson, executive director of the American Immigration Council, said Pearce’s fate should cause state legislators to pause before trying to push through immigration legislation at the state level. But Kobach said had Pearce faced Lewis in the Republican Party primary, Pearce would have won. And, he said, although Pearce was defeated, many more “proenforcement” candidates nationally have won.

“legal fiasco” that led to the dismissal of the charges on Kline. The attorney general’s ofSix fice under Kline had obtained copies of the full reports from the health department in 2004, Irigonegaray said, but the agency never declared their authenticity — and now can’t with its set destroyed. “Competent lawyers know the importance of obtaining authenticated copies,” Irigonegaray said in court. Kline, who was attorney general from 2003 to 2007, lost his bid for re-election in 2006 and served as Johnson County district attorney from 2007 to 2009.

Kline said in a telephone interview that the criminal case “was defeated” by the actions of others, including Sebelius and Democrats who succeeded him as attorney general. “We did what we were supposed to do,” he said. A hearing on the remaining charges against Planned Parenthood is set for February.

Cain accuser complained in next job Three years after Karen Kraushaar settled her sexual harassment complaint against Herman Cain and quit the trade association where they worked, she filed another complaint at her new job. She argued that supervisors there unfairly denied her request to work from home after a car accident and accused one of them of circulating a sexually oriented email, The Associated Press has learned. Kraushaar, 55, says she later dropped the complaint that she filed while working as a spokeswoman at the Immigration and Naturalization Service in late 2002 or early 2003 and left the agency to take a job at the Treasury Department. She says she considered the immigration service complaint “relatively minor.” But three former supervisors say the allegations, which did not include a sexual harassment claim, were investigated and treated seriously. Two former supervisors say she initially demanded a settlement of thousands of dollars, a promotion on the federal pay scale, reinstated leave time and a one-year fellowship to Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government. The promotion itself would have increased her annual salary between $12,000 and $16,000, according to salary tables in 2002 from the U.S. Office of Personnel Management.

Russians try to save Mars moon probe A Russian space probe became stuck in orbit Wednesday after an equipment failure, raising fears it could come crashing down and spill tons of highly toxic fuel on Earth unless engineers can steer it back to its flight path. The spacecraft was headed for one of Mars’ two moons when it developed technical problems. U.S. space and Defense Department officials are tracking it. Officials at NASA in Washington figure it will be at least a week, maybe more, before the errant space probe falls back to Earth, if it does. The Russians are trying to get it back on course. One independent U.S. expert on the Russian space program said the spacecraft could become the most dangerous man-made object ever to hit the planet. But those at the U.S. space agency and other space debris experts are far less worried. They believe the fuel will probably explode harmlessly in Earth’s upper atmosphere.

one was Tuesday in Salina and drew 65 people in snowy conditions. Today, there will be one in Pittsburg. Mark Desetti, an event organizer and a lobbyist for the Kansas National Education Association, said the town hall meetings are about bringing Kansans together to preserve quality of life. “Our communities have quality schools, roads, state and service employees, and services and treatment for disabled and elder populations. All of these could be in jeopardy, depending on how the governor and Legislature appropriate funding,” he said. “Quality of life is what brings people to Kansas, and that’s what we need to preserve.”

After nearly five years in the Army’s 75th Ranger Regiment, serving through five deployments in active war zones, former Sgt. Howard “Ford” Sypher stands ready to assemble an allvolunteer force to assist in domestic times of need. Especially right here at home. Sypher, who grew up in Lawrence and now attends Kansas University, told Douglas County Commissioners on Wednesday that veterans volunteering through Team Rubicon would be willing to handle tasks ranging from construction of homes through Habitat for Humanity to searching through rubble for survivors of tornadoes, fires, earthquakes or anything else. As Veterans Day approaches, he said, the Sypher call to civic duty remains strong among highlyskilled troops returning from Iraq, Afghanistan and all corners of the world. “This group of veterans is not interested in having a beer in a pool hall and sharing political discourse,” said Sypher, director of a Team Rubicon region that covers Kansas, Missouri, Iowa and Nebraska. “They want to do something. They want to get to serving.” Commissioners welcomed Sypher’s can-do attitude and encouraged him to meet with leaders of area law-enforcement and emergency-response agencies to determine just how Team Rubicon’s veterans could be especially effective during disaster situations. Douglas County Undersherriff Steve Hornberger agreed with Sypher that highly trained personnel with specific skills

Quake kills at least 3; dozens trapped An earthquake struck eastern Turkey on Wednesday night, killing at least three people and leaving dozens trapped in the rubble of toppled buildings damaged in the previous temblor, which had killed 600 people. About two-dozen buildings collapsed in the provincial capital of Van following a magnitude-5.7 quake, though most of them were empty or had been declared unfit because they were weakened by the earlier quake, according to media reports. In a grim replay of scenes from last month’s quake in the same region, men climbed onto piles of debris and frantically clawed at twisted steel and crumbled concrete in an attempt to find survivors. Voices could be heard calling for help from under the debris, and at least 13 people were pulled alive from the rubble in early rescue efforts, according to Turkish media. Rescue workers used the glare of high-powered lights to work through the night. There were several aftershocks.

U.S. mulls new route for Canada oil pipeline By Matthew Daly Associated Press

WASHINGTON — The State Department is considering a plan that would reroute the proposed Keystone XL oil pipeline from Canada away from environmentally sensitive areas of Nebraska, an action that could delay a final decision on the project until after the 2012 election. A U.S. official said told The Associated Press on Wednesday that rerouting the pipeline was a key issue that came up during public meetings and this fall in the six states through which the pipeline would run. The official asked not to be identified because no decision has been made. Calgary-based TransCanada Corp. is seeking to build the $7 billion pipeline to carry oil derived from tar sands in Alberta, Canada, to refineries on the Texas Gulf Coast. A portion of the 1,700-mile pipeline would pass through Nebraska’s Sandhills region and the massive Ogallala aquifer, which supplies water to eight states. A State Department decision to reroute the pipeline would require an environmental review of the new section, a process that would likely push a final decision on the pipeline past the 2012 election. The heavily contested project has become a political trap for President Barack Obama, who risks angering environmental supporters if he approves the pipeline and could face criticism from labor and business groups for thwarting jobs if he rejects it. Some liberal donors have threatened to cut off funds to Obama’s re-election campaign if he approves the pipeline, which has


State senator Tom Holland and state representatives Paul Davis, TerriLois Gregory and Annie Tietze were in attendance along with Douglas County commissioners Nancy Thellman and Mike Gaughan. Davis, D-Lawrence, said the state economy is recovering and continuing to grow so there would be great debate during the upcoming session about what to do with revenues. Among them: cut taxes, add services or save it for a rainy day. “This is a very, very important time in state government,” he said. Davis said he’s concerned that the focus seems to be on

become a major focal point of environmental groups who say it would bring “dirty oil” that requires huge amounts of energy to extract. They also worry that the pipeline could cause an ecological disaster in case of a spill. Thousands of protesters gathered across from the White House on Sunday to oppose the pipeline. The crowd linked hands to surround the White House, keeping pressure on Obama as his administration decides whether to approve the project. The State Department has authority over the project because it crosses a U.S. border. The Keystone XL pipeline would double the capacity of an existing pipeline operated by TransCanada, and supporters say it could significantly reduce U.S. dependence on Middle Eastern oil while providing thousands of jobs. TransCanada has said any delay in the approval process could cost it millions of dollars and keep thousands of people of from getting jobs. Meanwhile, the department’s inspector general has launched a review of the Obama administration’s handling of the pipeline request. The review is being conducted in response to complaints from Democratic lawmakers about possible conflicts of interest in the review process. Deputy Inspector General Harold W. Geisel said the special review will center on whether the State Department “and all other parties involved” in the project followed federal laws and regulations related to the pipeline, which would travel through Montana, South Dakota, Kansas, Nebraska and Oklahoma before reaching Texas.

numbers instead of people. So, he encouraged everyone to tell their stories and make their voices heard. Free State High School English teacher Sam Rabiola talked about the impact of funding cuts on education. In 1987 when he started teaching in Lawrence, he had about 120 students. That number began to rise during the past couple of years, and this year he has 140 students. He said there’s a Lawrence High School science teacher who has 150 students. Those in the audience shook their heads at the numbers, especially Desetti who is a former kindergarten teacher. “I know the difference between having 25 kids and having 20 or 15,” he said. “It’s a huge difference.” Bill Simons, 69, Lawrence, is deeply concerned about



which include everybody from medical insurance specialists to order processors. That’s where the city and its Farmland Industries site comes into the picture. The Farmland property is a sprawling one. In addition to the old plant area that can be seen from Kansas Highway 10, the property also includes “buffer ground” that stretches toward the Douglas County Fairgrounds and goes behind the building at 2004 E. 23rd St. Hultine and SurePoint want to lease about 0.5 acre to construct a temporary parking lot, and they also want the option to purchase another 1.5 acres so that they can eventually build a 20,000-square-foot office building. City commissioners said they’re interested in working out a lease and an option for SurePoint to purchase

the two-acre site. Commissioners have directed staff to create an agreement using market rates for the property. The city has a recent appraisal that estimates the 1.5-acre site is worth about $130,000. Commissioners said they weren’t concerned about allowing the project to move forward before planning for the new business park is complete because this particular site is tucked away in a corner of the property. City officials are interviewing consultants to complete plans for the overall park. That work is expected to begin early next year. “We’re not sacrificing the overall concept of what we’re trying to do with the property,” said Mayor Aron Cromwell. “And this is the type of company we want to keep in Lawrence.” Commissioners are expected to finalize an agreement with SurePoint and Hultine in the next few weeks.

Officials trying to find missing $60,000 bond GARDEN CITY (AP) — The whereabouts of a U.S. Treasury bond left to the Finney County Public Library in 1984 have baffled library, county and state officials, who weren’t aware of the bequest until a copy of the bond was found when a time capsule was unearthed in 2008. The mystery began when Earl C. Brookover Sr., founder of Brookover Feed Yards in Garden City, bequeathed the bond to the library, and it was placed at what was then the Garden National Bank. Brookover bought the bond for $3,888 but officials estimate it is now worth $60,000. A copy of the bond and a letter from Brookover detailing his gift were buried in a time capsule in a Garden City park in 1984 and unearthed in December 2008, The Garden City Telegram reported. Nobody from the library knew about the gift until the Finney County Historical Society handed over the items from the time capsule. Since then, the library’s board of trustees has tried several times without success to locate the money, said Rocky Cook, chairman of the library’s board. Cook said the search has been complicated because the Garden National Bank changed hands at least four times in the last 25 years. So in March 2009, the library board turned its information over to county officials. “We turned it over to them, and we backed away,” Cook said. “(But) it was meant for the library and for the building. There are certainly many things that could benefit from this gift.” County Counselor Tom Burgardt said the county has tried several methods to locate the money, from tracking leads through the sheriff’s office to alerting state officials and the Office of the Kansas Securities Commissioner. “We don’t have the original

We turned it over to them, and we backed away. (But) it was meant for the library and for the building. There are certainly many things that could benefit from this gift.” — Rocky Cook, chairman of Finney County Public Library’s board, which turned its information on a time capsule containing a $60,000 bond over to county officials bond,” Burgardt said. “When we can find out where that went, we should be able to call the bond.” Kathy Diehl, a director of compliance with the Kansas Office of the Securities Commission, said the mystery is almost an “impossible situation.” The original zero-coupon bond was purchased by Brookover Sr. from State Street Bank and Trust Co., Diehl said. No one checked on the funds in more than two decades, in part because the Garden National Bank changed hands so many times. “The original bond was put into Garden National Bank and the copy was put into the time capsule ... and everybody forgot about it. In that time, no one said, ‘Where’s my bond?,’” Diehl said. “Due to the continual round of bank purchases and the length of time, we’ve been unable to find the broker that is holding the $60,000.” Diehl said state officials don’t believe any criminal activity is involved, just a “comedy of errors.” Patricia Fishback, a vice chairwoman of the library board who knew Brookover, said the $60,000 is important to the library, which was built nearly three decades ago and still has some of its original equipment.

Navy to promote itself during historic hoops game By Julie Watson Associated Press

CORONADO, CALIF. — The fighter jets are gone from the flight deck, and in their place is a gleaming basketball court surrounded by bright green bleachers — a stark contrast to the gray, 95,000-ton Navy warship that buried Osama bin Laden at sea. Friday’s historic North Carolina-Michigan State basketball game aboard the USS Carl Vinson couldn’t have come at a more opportune time for a Navy facing deep defense cuts. Officials plan to seize the spotlight to showcase the Navy and its awe-inspiring, multibillion-dollar aircraft carriers to the more than 3 million viewers expected to watch the Veterans Day game on ESPN. The country’s basketball-fan-in-chief, President Barack Obama, will be onboard for the game. With the war in Iraq officially over and the one in Afghanistan winding down, the military is almost certain to shrink. All branches of service are feeling pressure to tout the importance of their missions and their equipment. Navy officials say they know a basketball game will not change the budget debate, but it can’t hurt efforts to get the American public excited about their branch of service as its chiefs lobby Congress to avoid cuts that

North Carolina and Michigan State will play in the first Carrier Classic game Friday. could jeopardize its future military strategies. The role of the Nimitz-class supercarriers in modern warfare has been part of that discussion with critics questioning whether anti-ship weapons have turned them into white elephants that are too expensive to risk losing in a war. In 2015, the Navy plans to add to its fleet the Gerald R. Ford, the lead ship of a new three-ship class of supercarriers. Each is expected to cost about $9 billion. Capt. Bruce H. Lindsey, the Vinson’s commanding officer, said viewers Friday will get a firsthand look at just how important carriers are

to military operations, from sending aircraft into Iraq and Afghanistan, to supporting relief efforts during disasters such as the earthquakes in Haiti and Japan. The program will feature snippets about Naval life aboard the 1,092foot floating airport. “It’s an awesome opportunity to showcase Naval aviation and your Navy,” he said. The Navy wants to show Americans how their tax dollars are being spent, said Rear Admiral Dennis Moynihan, the Navy’s chief spokesman. “It’s their aircraft carrier; they have paid for it,” Moynihan said. “They are the shareholders, and it’s important

‘Family Circus’ creator Bil Keane dies at 89 PHOENIX — Bil Keane’s “Family Circus” comics entertained readers with a simple but sublime mix of humor and traditional family values for more than a half century. The appeal endured, the author thought, because the American public needed the consistency. Keane, who started drawing the one-panel cartoon featuring Billy, Jeffy, Dolly, P.J. and their parents in February 1960, died

Tuesday at age 89 at his longtime home in Paradise Valley, near Phoenix. His comic strip is featured in nearly 1,500 newspapers across the country. Jeff Keane, Keane’s son who lives in Laguna Hills, Calif., said that his father died of congestive heart failure with one of his other sons by his side after his conditioned worsened during the last month. All of Keane’s five children, nine

grandchildren and great-granddaughter were able to visit him last week, Jeff Keane said. “He said, ‘I love you’ and that’s what I said to him, which is a great way to go out,” Jeff Keane said of the last conversation he had with his father. “The great thing is Dad loved the family so much, so the fact that we all saw him, I think that gave him great comfort and made his passing easy. Luckily he didn’t

they understand how we are spending those dollars in the Navy. ... It is sort of a report to shareholders.” Critics say the United States now has too many carriers, and the Navy can do the same missions with smaller, more economical vessels. With 11 carriers, the U.S. Navy has more than the rest of the navies on the planet combined, said Christopher Preble, a Navy veteran and foreign policy expert at the Cato Institute. Most are Nimitz-class vessels, the world’s largest warships. The amount of money needed to build a carrier could be used to build more than a half-dozen destroyer ships, Preble said. The game will be watched by a prime Navy recruiting market — young people. Magic Johnson and James Worthy will serve as honorary captains for their alma maters at the game, attended by 7,000 mostly active-duty military personnel off the coast of San Diego. Obama will have the seat of his choice, but he won’t be arriving on a jet like President George W. Bush did when he made an arrested landing in a fixed-wing aircraft on the USS Abraham Lincoln in 2003. Bush used the ship as a setting to announce the end of major combat operations in Iraq under a banner hung on the warship reading “Mission Accomplished.” Opponents criticized it as a publicity stunt.


GOP candidates: Fix U.S. economy or fail like Europe By Kasie Hunt Associated Press

ROCHESTER, MICH. — United in agreement for once, Republican presidential rivals warned forcefully Wednesday night the United States could be doomed to the same sort of financial crisis that is afflicting Europe unless federal deficits are drastically cut and the economy somehow revived. Though sexual harassment allegations facing Herman Cain have dominated the GOP campaign for more than a week, the debate in economically ailing Michigan focused almost entirely on financial worries and proposed solutions in the U.S. The candidates generally stuck to practiced speech lines — with a late exception. In the middle of one answer, Texas Gov. Rick Perry found himself unable to recall the names of all three of the Cabinet-level agencies he wants to eliminate, even leaning over to Rep. Ron Paul for help at one point. “The third agency of government I would do away with — the Education, the Commerce. And let’s see. I can’t. The third one I can’t. Oops,” he said, forgetting for a moment that he wants to abolish the Department of Energy. On one specific issue that Congress must address soon, the candidates generally backed an extension of the Social Security payroll tax suffer through a lot of things.” cut scheduled to expire at the Jeff Keane has been drawend of the year. That was a ing “Family Circus” in the last rare moment of accord with few years as his father enjoyed President Barack Obama and retirement. many congressional DemoKeane said in a 1995 incrats, who have been warnterview with The Associated ing that consumers could be Press that the cartoon had hurt if the reduction is not staying power because of its renewed. consistency and simplicity. “I’m not prepared to raise “It’s reassuring, I think, to taxes on working Americans the American public to see the in the middle of a recession same family,” he said.

that’s this bad,” said former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, a sentiment quickly seconded by former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney. Perry disagreed, and Rep. Michelle Bachmann of Minnesota said she opposed the one-year reduction when it was approved late last year. She said it had so far “blown a hole of $100 billion in the Social Security trust fund.” Asked about Europe’s financial troubles, the candidates seemed to speak with one voice in saying Italy and other European countries should rise or fall on their own without any American bailout. And several of the White House hopefuls warned that unless U.S. deficits are cut and the economy invigorated, America is headed for the same type of downward spiral. “Europe is able to take care of their own problems. We don’t want to step in and bail out their banks and their economies,” former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney said as he and GOP rivals met for the first time in three weeks in campaign debate. Even so, he said the United States should continue contributing to organizations like the International Monetary Fund that are working to prevent a meltdown in troubled economies overseas., Paul was more emphatic about the debt. “You have to let it liquidate. We took 40 years to build up this worldwide debt,” he added. Cain said there wasn’t much the United States could do to directly to help Italy at present because the economy there is in such difficult shape. “We need to focus on the economy or we will fail,” he said, referring to the U.S. and calling for spending cuts, a strong dollar and measures to stimulate growth.

Chapter 12 Susan B. Anthony

Last Chapter:! Wearing their glasses, the twins walk to their school where they expect a big welcome.! When no one even looks up and the date on the board is the day they left, they realize they are invisible and time has stood still. At home even their dog can’t see or hear them. And so they travel on. This time they are in Goodland to witness the trial flight of a forerunner to the helicopter. “When I was six,” the woman at the podium said, “we moved from Massachusetts to Battenville, New York, and I was enrolled in the school there.! When it came time to learn long division, the teacher refused to teach me because I was a girl.” Just minutes before, Jack and Mollie found themselves sitting on chairs in a big room among an audience of men, women, and boys listening to the woman who had just spoken those words. Mollie nudged Jack. “The teacher wouldn’t teach her math because she was a girl?” she hissed.! “What kind of a school was that?” “Look at our clothes, Mollie,” Jack said. “It was a long time ago.” “Still,” Mollie muttered indignantly. “It wasn’t fair.” “Shush,” said the woman seated beside her.! Embarrassed, Mollie focused her attention on the woman speaker who was dressed in a black long sleeved dress, the skirt brushing the floor, her dark hair parted in the middle and pulled back into a bun.! As the woman spoke of women’s suffrage, it took Mollie a moment to realize she meant women’s voting rights.! From their clothes, she knew they were back again in the 1800s, and as always, in Kansas.! The question was, where in Kansas and who was this woman? As she listened to the woman talk so earnestly for a woman’s right to vote, Mollie! could! feel her heart fill with the same emotion, and she laughed right out

loud when the woman said that all women should be allowed to vote in all elections and the men were blockheads if they didn’t think so, too. Jack rolled his eyes at his sister and pulled slightly away. It wasn’t that funny. He looked at the men’s faces and saw that they didn’t think it was so funny either.! Some of them scowled at the woman and moved uneasily in their seats. Mollie noticed that although the men frowned, the women’s eyes sparkled and they held up small fans and embroidered handkerchiefs to hide their wide smiles and delighted grins. Mollie wondered why she was the only girl in the audience. Had the fathers dragged their sons here?! And where were the women’s daughters? She thought the boys looked really bored. She was sure they’d rather be outside playing baseball or something. Now the woman talked about a convention held in 1859, eight years ago, called the Wyandotte Constitutional Convention. There, the woman informed them, it was decided that Kansas women could vote for school issues.! “So that, I imagine, was to appease Kansas women,”

she said.! “Although it is definitely better than not at all, it is not good enough. We will fight until we gain full suffrage” Jack had a hard time paying attention and kept nodding off. He heard the speaker say, “Today, the seventh day of September, 1867, not just here in Manhattan, Kansas, but all over this state, half of the population does not have full suffrage. And that is deplorable.”! Mollie poked him with her elbow and he jerked awake. “We’re in Manhattan,” she

whispered, “and I didn’t know women couldn’t always vote. Did you?” No, Jack mouthed silently. Still not knowing the woman’s name, Mollie whispered to the woman beside her. “You don’t know?”! Shocked, the woman forgot to keep her voice low and earned a few frowns. Lowering her voice, she whispered, “That’s Susan B. Anthony.! She is fighting for us, for our right to vote. You’re too young to understand, but it is a right all women should have. A right we must fight for in every way we can.” Mollie thought of her mother and wished she could be here. After Susan B. Anthony’s speech, several women, including the woman who sat beside Mollie, went up talk to the speaker, and Mollie followed. “I am so glad to see you here, my dear,” Susan B. Anthony said, when she came to her.! “You are the future and I pray we’ll have the vote by the time you are grown.” Mollie wanted to tell her about her mother and grandmother. Both always voted.! But they didn’t see eye-to-eye on politics.! In the last presidential election, Mom, a Democrat, had voted for President Obama. Grandma Andrews, a Republican, had voted for John McCain. Instead, she said, “Thank you for trying to help us get the vote.” Later she told Jack she also wanted to tell her that the Susan B. Anthony dollar was minted in her honor.! “Too bad it was so small,” Jack said. “I know.! Mom said people got it confused with the quarter, so no one wanted it. But a regular dollar was too heavy. Maybe they should have made paper ones.” “And get rid of George Washington?” Jack said.! Mollie frowned. “That doesn’t seem right either. I wonder if her picture was ever on a stamp?” “The computer will know,” Jack said. The twins had found their glasses in their pockets and they put them on as soon as they were outside. Instantly the modern town of Manhattan and the time machine appeared.! Inside the time machine, the twins read about the struggle it took for women to get the right to vote.! Some women were jailed for protesting.! Some women were even beaten and kicked.! One doctor was asked to declare a woman insane for wanting the vote.! They read about Charley Parkhurst, a

woman in the early days of California who passed herself off as a man. At election time, she voted under her assumed name many years before the right was granted to women.! They also read about Susanna M. Salter the first woman mayor of Argonia, Kansas, the first woman ever to be elected mayor or to hold a political office of any kind in the United States. A man put her name on the ballet as a joke.! He thought she wouldn’t get any votes and be embarrassed. Instead she won.! She served one term. She had nine children. One baby was born and died while she was in office. She did her job well and the men who joked about “Petticoat Rule” soon grew silent. Reading on, the twins found that the women in Kansas got the right to vote in 1912.!! Figuring in his head, Jack said, “That was forty-five years after this talk we just heard.” Mollie grinned. “Forty-five years after this talk you almost heard.” “Sorry,” Jack said.! “Look,” Mollie said, reading off the computer. “That was Kansas. It wasn’t until !1920 that all the women in all the states could vote.”

Options for oil sanctions face economic risks By Brian Murphy Associated Press


UNITED ARAB EMIRWith Iran angrily defiant about a U.N. report accusing it of developing nuclear weapons, Western powers and allies faced complicated questions Wednesday on how to further tighten pressure on the oil giant without shaking the fragile world economy. The path toward possible new sanctions also quickly confronted a huge roadblock as Iranian ally Russia said it would oppose any new measures in the U.N. Security Council and rejected any military options as risking “grave consequences” to global security. The sharp push back reflects the increasing difficulties for Western leaders to find ways to rattle Iran. So far, four rounds of U.N. sanctions have apparently failed to stop secret nuclear tests that brought Iran to the brink of mastering the process for atomic weapons, according to a U.N. watchdog agency report released Tuesday. Iran claims the evidence in the report is baseless and

says its nuclear program is only for energy and research. The two opposing narratives were on vivid display Wednesday. In a speech broadcast live on Iranian TV, President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad vowed that Iran won’t retreat “one iota” from its nuclear ambitions, which include the process to enrich uranium. About the same time in Paris, French Foreign Minister Alain Juppe said the world cannot accept a nuclear-armed Iran and pledged that France would support boosting sanctions to an “unprecedented scale” if Iran stonewalls investigations. Israel, meanwhile, called on the world to stop Iran’s nuclear program, but did not repeat its warnings of a military option. “There is lots of talk about how to slap new punishments on Iran,” said Patrick Clawson, deputy director of the Washington Institute for Near East Policy. “Where it would hurt is oil. That, however, is a tough call with the world economy teetering.” Iran’s oil exports — among the biggest in OPEC — are undoubtedly the Islamic Republic’s most vulnerable spot

as its key revenue source, but also represent a possible nogo zone for new sanctions. “You’d want to impose the last big sanction on Iran to cut the revenue once and for all, but there would be detrimental consequences” by driving up oil prices and rattling world financial markets already uneasy over Europe’s debt crisis, said Jamie Webster, a senior analyst at the Washington-based consultants PFC Energy. An indirect option is seeking U.S. and European bans on dealings with Iran’s central bank, which handles the country’s oil commerce around the world. But that, too, could drive up oil prices — now approaching $100 per barrel — by raising the costs of transactions in Iran’s main markets in Europe and Asia, including Security Council member China, which depends on Iran for about 10 percent of its growing fuel needs. “There seems to be no appetite from the Obama administration to do anything to drive oil prices higher,” said Helima Croft, a geopolitical analyst with Barclays Capital. “An oil embargo seems absolutely off the table.”


Notable Toyota Motor Corp. said Wednesday it is recalling about 550,000 vehicles worldwide — mostly in the United States — for problems that could make it harder to steer. The recall affects 447,000 vehicles in North America, said Toyota spokesman Dion Corbett. There have been no reports of accidents or injuries related to the problems, he said. In the United States, the automaker is recalling 283,200 Toyota brand cars, including the 2004 and 2005 Camry, Highlander, Sienna and Solara, the 2004 Avalon and the 2006 Highlander HV. Its recall of 137,000 Lexus vehicles includes the 2004 and 2005 ES330 and RX330 and 2006 RX400h.

Italian president moves to calm roiling markets By Colleen Barry and Nicole Winfield Associated Press

ROME — Italy’s president moved swiftly Wednesday to reassure anxious markets, promising that Silvio Berlusconi would soon be vacating the premier’s office and unexpectedly lavishing praise on economist Mario Monti, who might lead the debt-plagued country’s next government. The former European competition commissioner is widely considered to be a top contender to be the next Italian premier, now that Berlusconi has pledged to resign as soon as urgently demanded economic reforms are approved by Parliament. President Giorgio Napolitano’s office announced he had named Monti, who now runs the prestigious Bocconi University in Milan, as a senator-for-life. Senators-for-life include notable figures outside of politics and have voting privileges in the Senate. The honor could reinforce Monti’s widely viewed status as a respectable figure above party politics. Earlier in the day, financial markets had pounded Italy, as investors worried that Berlusconi might linger in office. Napolitano had responded by declaring there was no doubt that Berlusconi would leave soon, appearing to soothe investors. State TV on Wednesday

night said the financial reform measures so eagerly sought by Italy’s eurozone partners might be approved by Saturday. It was another chaotic day driven by the European debt crisis. The Dow Jones industrial average dropped nearly 240 points in New York morning trading after Italy’s borrowing costs soared to a new record high. Traders were troubled by signs that Europe’s unending debt crisis was enveloping Italy — the eurozone’s third-largest economy, a nation too big for Europe to bail out. And across the Ionian Sea, Greek lawmakers labored for a third day but finally came up with a deal to create an interim government to pass the country’s new debt deal. Outgoing Greek Prime Minister George Papandreou, who was expected to formally resign with hours, wished the next prime minister well but gave no indication of who it would be. Greek opposition members claimed the ruling Socialists were holding up the naming of the interim Greek leader. Berlusconi has pledged to resign after the Italian parliament passes the financial reforms that European officials have been demanding for months. The process can take up to two weeks, but Napolitano said that would be accelerated to days, allowing him to quickly begin talks on forming a new government or calling new elections.

Study stirs debate over liver transplants By Carla K. Johnson Associated Press

CHICAGO — Some gravely ill alcoholics who need a liver transplant shouldn’t have to prove they can stay sober for six months to get one, doctors say in a study that could intensify the debate over whether those who destroy their organs by drinking deserve new ones. In the small French study, the vast majority of the patients who got a liver without the wait stopped drinking after their surgery and were sober years later. The study involved patients who were suffering from alcohol-related hepatitis so severe that they were unlikely to survive a six-month delay. The findings, reported in today’s New England Journal of Medicine, could boost demand for livers, already in scarce supply, and reopen a bitter dispute over whether alcoholics should even get transplants. The controversy peaked in the 1990s when celebrities with drinking problems — Larry Hagman, David Crosby and Mickey Mantle — got liver transplants. More recently, British soccer star George Best received a new liver in 2002, started drinking again and died three years later. Alcohol can cause lethal, liver-destroying diseases such as cirrhosis and hepatitis. Nearly one in five liver transplants in

the U.S. go to current or former heavy drinkers. Transplant hospitals commonly require patients waiting for a new liver to give up drinking for six months as a way of assuring doctors they are serious about staying sober after the operation. Drinkers severely ill with hepatitis account for a very small share of patients needing transplants. The French study suggests that dropping the sixmonth rule for these patients would increase demand for livers by only about 3 percent.

The study’s lead author, Dr. Philippe Mathurin of Huriez Hospital in Lille, France, said a strict application of the six-month rule may be unfair to such patients. He said they are just as deserving as other liver patients, many of whom have diseases caused by poor lifestyle choices such as drug use or obesity. Mathurin said he favors keeping the rule for other alcoholics with liver disease, noting that some can recover liver function simply by staying sober.

Teacher loss The state can’t expect to maintain the quality of its public schools when it funds fewer teachers to serve more students.


tatistics released last week by the Kansas State Department of Education offer a clear picture of at least one effect of recent state funding cuts for public schools. While the number of students enrolled in Kansas schools rose by 9,701 this year, the total of all certified personnel working with those students declined by 277. Of those, 256 were classroom teachers. Some state legislators have argued in recent years that public schools operate with bloated administrations that need to be trimmed. That certainly has occurred. Between the 2010-11 school year and the 2011-12 school year, the state lost two school superintendents, 11 associate or assistant superintendents, 28 principals and 15 assistant principals. Since the 2008-09 school year, the state has lost a total of 112 people in those four employment categories. If state legislators wanted leaner, meaner administrative staffs at public schools, they’ve accomplished that goal. How about for classroom teachers? The number of special education teachers dropped in the last two years, but rebounded this year to about the same level as in 200809. A modest increase also was reported in the number of vocational education teachers. However, in the last year, Kansas schools lost about 420 teachers in other areas. How can Kansas schools preserve the quality of instruction they offer students with so many fewer teachers in the classrooms? Research has repeatedly documented the positive effect that smaller class size has on educational achievement. There is no doubt that the classroom teachers who have direct contact with students on a day-to-day basis are a critical part of individual students’ academic success. Funding for public schools is a matter of priorities. There is no higher priority than recruiting and retaining high quality teachers and giving them classes that are small enough to manage and teach effectively. In the last four years, per-pupil state funding for public schools has declined by about 14 percent, from $4,400 per student to $3,780. Districts have cut the fat in their budgets and then some. It’s time to correct this dangerous trend.

Football scramble puts focus on funds WASHINGTON — A few millennia from now, when archaeologists from an ascendant Brazil or Turkey or wherever sift the shards of American civilization and find the ruins of the Big House in Ann Arbor, Mich., they will wonder why a 109,901seat entertainment venue was attached to an institution of higher education. Today, the accelerating preposterousness of big-time college football is again provoking furrowed brows and pursed lips. But there probably were few of either among the 20 million who Saturday night watched Alabama’s student-athletes play those of LSU. These teams’ head coaches’ salaries are $4.6 million and $3.75 million, respectively, and their additional perquisites and incentives have cash values not to be sneezed at. But by some hedonic or other calculus, these coaches may add more to the national stock of pleasure, and even more value to their institutions, than do Alabama’s president and LSU’s chancellor, who earn $487,620 and $400,000, respectively. The college football conglomerate has recently been roiled by an unseemly scramble — if seemliness pertains to this industry — of schools abandoning their old conferences and jettisoning traditional rivalries in a race to get into other conferences where television revenues are more bountiful. For now, this is the landscape: The Pac (for Pacific) 10 now has 12 teams, having acquired

The college football conglomerate has recently been roiled by an unseemly scramble … of schools abandoning their old conferences and jettisoning traditional rivalries in a race to get into other conferences where television revenues are more bountiful.”

Utah and Colorado, which is 936 miles from the Pacific. The Big Ten, which has had 11 teams since Penn State joined in 1990, now has, with Nebraska, 12. The Big East, having lost several members (including Pittsburgh and Syracuse, to the ACC) and its sense of geography, is courting Southern Methodist, which is in Dallas, and Boise State, which would have to fly 4,300 miles round trip to play South Florida in Tampa. The Big East is desperate to remain one of the six conferences whose winner gets an automatic bid to one of the Bowl Championship Series

games, which can pay a conference as much as $26 million. One reason Texas A&M is bolting to the Southeastern Conference from the Big 12 (which is also losing Missouri to the SEC) is that Texas struck a 20-year $300 million deal with ESPN and started its own cable channel. ESPN, which has rights to 33 of 35 Division I postseason games with its sister network ABC, will by next year spend more than $700 million on rights to college football and other sports. ESPN is what the feckless NCAA pretends to be, the real regulator of college football. The NCAA may soon ban from postseason competition all football (and basketball) teams with bad graduation rates. This will increase the already powerful incentives to provide athletes undemanding curricula that refute the adjective in the phrase higher education. This is one example of how reforms can make matters worse. Another example is the proposal to pay the players some of the money their exertions are generating. If football players are paid, female field hockey players must be, too, because of Title IX’s gender equity mandates. Besides, it is one thing for a music major to earn money on the side playing trumpet in a dance band; it is something very different to establish an entitlement of athletes to a portion of the profits from a multibilliondollar sports operation. Furthermore, trumpeters do not risk broken limbs and torn

ligaments. Football players do, and if they receive financial compensation, beyond their scholarships (and potential future earnings in professional sports), are they then employees of their universities and eligible for workmen’s compensation? But wait. About those profits the players want a share of: Actual profits are difficult to document, particularly if you argue that big-time football programs are wholesome because those whose revenues exceed expenses can, or ought to, use their surpluses to subsidize their schools’ many “non-revenue” sports — basically, all sports except basketball. It is arguable, if not easily demonstrable, that universities’ athletic successes cause increased student applications and alumni giving. Such giving matters increasingly as states’ appropriations decrease. But even if true, this begs a question: Is the football industry as currently conducted an efficient way to do this? This is, in several senses, an academic question. In 1873, Andrew Dickson White, Cornell University’s first president, refused permission for the school’s football team to travel to Cleveland to play Michigan: “I will not permit 30 men to travel 400 miles merely to agitate a bag of wind.” Today, the muscular interests around, and institutional momentum of, big-time football make it impervious to reform. Agitation, in several senses, will continue.

Murray not only tragedy in Jackson’s life Once upon a time, there was a boy who channeled the gods. He invoked them through his feet, moving without friction across the gleam of a thousand stages. They possessed him though his voice, now rough like bark, now sweet like butter and brimming always with an emotional depth once thought inaccessible to children. You felt the gods of soul and of show — James, Jackie, Sammy — moving through him when that first big record hit the streets late in 1969. The glissando splashes down into an urgency of guitar and a wriggling of bass and in comes the boy, moaning with real need about that girl he let get away. “I want you back,” he cries. And you don’t doubt him for an instant. If you are lucky enough to be old enough to have been there then — not to have listened to a greatest hits CD or watch a video on YouTube, but to have been there, buying the albums, staying up for the TV appearances, feeling that rush of discovery — perhaps you felt a kind of detachment Monday from the cheers that went up when the verdict came in. Justice, people called it. There can be little doubt jurors got it right when they found Dr. Conrad Murray guilty of involuntary manslaughter in the death of Michael Jackson. In using a dangerous surgical anesthetic to treat Jackson’s insomnia — in allowing a drugaddicted patient to dictate the terms of his treatment — Murray transgressed not just law, not just medical ethics, but also

common sense and simple decency. When an addict dies it is fair to blame the pusher who solid him his final fix. But what do you say of the addict himself, for never seeking or accepting help, for not grasping the hands of those who reached out? After all, people pleaded with Jackson, family tried to stage an intervention. None of them could save him, nor induce him to save himself. And that is the lasting tragedy here, the thing that will haunt long after Conrad Murray has served his sentence, written his book and been forgotten. Jackson lived 40 years in the

spotlight, four decades that saw him transfigure from a handsome, preternaturally talented adolescent with an irrepressible grin to a parchment colored wraith with fright wig hair and a collapsed proboscis. Over those years, he became famous to a degree for which he was unprepared, a degree for which, arguably, no one could be. And in the darkness beyond the floodlights, Jackson lived a life noteworthy for its bizarreness, its unrestraint and its detachment from reality. For the last quarter century of that life, the outside world received occasional glimpses from within, like dispatches from some Iron Curtain country, and the things we saw were troubling. From elephant man’s bones to Jesus juice to sleepovers with children to drug addiction, we tracked the slow disintegration of what had once seemed a charmed life. And Murray’s fate does not fix nor even address the loss you feel if you met him in the last months of the 1960s. It is as if the future betrayed you, as if promise told a lie. Indeed, it is difficult even to believe this moment grew from that one. Once upon a time, there was a boy who channeled the gods, whose song made you feel young and clean and believe you might stay in that state of grace always.

To the editor: A number of years ago, (when I could no longer deny the wreckage that my excessive behaviors were causing in my life), I received a bit of wisdom. A wise man told me that I didn’t necessarily need to replace everything in my life, but I certainly needed to find a healthier balance. In my opinion, and that of the nonpartisan, historically respected Congressional Budget Office, economic wealth in our country is out of balance. The present lack of regulations and little government oversight favor the wealthiest in our country (with the situation growing worse). Over the last 30 years, after-tax income rose 275 percent for the top 1 percent of Americans. In comparison, the same income for the bottom 20 percent of citizens rose 18 percent. This is wrong and out of balance. With passage of the heinous “Citizens United” ruling by the Supreme Court, the 1 percent (and the corporations they own) are flooding our election system with HUGE amounts of money to elect conservatives into the legislatures and judiciary at both the state and federal level. This is wrong and out of balance. History doesn’t show many examples of successful, purely socialistic states in the modern world. I’m not advocating a swing to pure socialism, but world history has too many examples (many happening today) where the economic aristocracy lord it over the economic peasants. I’m opposed to that happening anywhere, but especially so in MY country. We are better than this. Daniel Patrick Schamle, Lawrence

Clues sought in Manhattan fire MANHATTAN (AP) — Federal investigators have joined the search for the cause of a massive weekend fire that destroyed a Manhattan apartment complex under construction. WIBW-TV reported that Manhattan Fire Chief Jerry Snyder said authorities weren’t ready to say whether the fire early Sunday is considered suspicious. The 96-unit Strasser Village Apartments had been expected to open sometime next fall. The luxury complex had been valued at $7 million, and Snyder calls the fire the most expensive in Manhattan’s history. The federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives is taking part in the investigation. ATF Special Agent in Charge Jeff Fulton said Wednesday the agency has 35 to 40 people working on the case. The complex is located near a retail development, where the roofs of several stores were damaged by flaming debris.

Family feud

Tom Keegan

Looking ahead to ’12-13 Now that Wichita recruit Perry Ellis officially is on board, it’s worth looking to the 2012-2013 season for a guess at what the Kansas University basketball rotation might look like. But first, a quick look at how this season’s rotation could shape up as Kansas heads into March. The starting five: Tyshawn Taylor, Elijah Johnson, Travis Releford, Thomas Robinson, Jeff Withey. The reserves in the rotation, listed in order of projected March minutes: Naadir Tharpe, Conner Teahan, Justin Wesley and in games a ninth man is needed, Kevin Young. This early, it’s impossible to do anything but guess at a March rotation, but it’s difficult to foresee one that doesn’t feature two walk-ons, Teahan and Wesley. So far, both have shown why they earned scholarships, especially the hotshooting Teahan. Looking at how far Wesley appears ahead of Young shows, for one thing, what a year of practice and strength and conditioning can do for a raw athlete. At Lamar two seasons ago, Wesley averaged 1.2 points and 9.9 minutes. Now, 20 pounds heavier, armed with Danny Manning’s lessons, and more accustomed to facing excellent competition after battling the Morris twins, Robinson and Withey all season, Wesley figures to be a more productive player in the Big 12 than he was in the Southland Conference. Watching Wesley, a 6-foot-8, 200-pound pogo stick, ought to serve as encouragement for 6-8, 215-pound freshman forward Jamari Traylor from Chicago. Traylor, an athletic player with raw basketball skills, won’t get to start practicing with the team until second semester. Even that will give him a nice head-start on his first college basketball season a year from now. Ben McLemore, also declared ineligible to practice first semester and compete in games all season, will benefit from a jump start as well, competing against Releford, Johnson, Taylor and Teahan daily. Put Ellis, who signed Wednesday, and 6-9, 235-pound center Zach Peters, set to sign Monday, into the mix, and next season’s roster is beginning to take shape, although coach Bill Self has made it clear he’s not done recruiting. Assuming Thomas Robinson declares for the draft after this season — he’s looking smarter by the day for not doing that as a sophomore, and he looked smart the day he made the decision — and assuming Merv Lindsay isn’t yet a rotation player, battles for playing time a year from now project as intense. Tharpe, Johnson, McLemore and Releford all bring quickness. Self said Ellis projects as a small forward, which gives the coach five strong options for the 120 perimeter minutes. Peters will join Withey, Traylor, Wesley and Young up front, which means if the right recruit is landed with one of the two available scholarships in the spring, he could become an instant starter. Failing that, Ellis and/or Rel- Ellis eford could spend some time in the post. The Ellis signing ought to have a soothing effect on those not used to seeing Self finish second on as many blue chips as he has in the past two years, but it might take landing another big fish in the spring to bring some fanatics in from the Self ledge.

KANSAS LINEBACKER MALCOLM WALKER, LEFT, AND BAYLOR WIDE RECEIVER KENDALL WRIGHT, RIGHT, on Saturday will take the field against each other for the first time since high school. The two said they consider each other family, but that their friendship won’t get in the way of their play — and trash talk — on the field.

Longtime friends Walker and Wright can’t wait for a reunion on the field By Matt Tait

Saturday’s 1 p.m. kickoff against Baylor might mark the final home game for 15 Kansas University seniors, but it figures to be more like a family reunion for junior linebacker Malcolm Walker. Walker, a 6-foot-1, 220-pound juco transfer from Daingerfield, Texas, will do his best to make longtime friend and Baylor wide receiver Kendall Wright feel welcome at Memorial Stadium this weekend. After all, Saturday is Wright’s birthday. But Walker, who refers to Baylor’s all-time leading receiver as “family,” circled Nov. 12 on his calendar months ago as more than a reminder about his buddy’s milestone. “We grew up together, playing football, basketball and just running around,” Walker said of Wright, who hails from Pittsburg, Texas, which sits 10 minutes away from Daingerfield. “He went to our senior prom. Me and Kendall are like brothers. When I go home and he’s at home, he’s coming to my house or I’m going to his house. When I get home at break, we’re always hanging out together. We compete real hard against each other because we are such close friends.” This weekend, for just the second time in their lives, that friendship will be put on hold as the two suit up in different locker rooms

Bourbon out for year J-W Staff Reports

Kansas University football coach Turner Gill said after Wednesday’s practice that red-shirt freshman running back Brandon Bourbon would miss the rest of the season because of Bourbon a leg injury. Gill said Bourbon, who rushed for 25 yards on back-to-back carries in last week’s loss at Iowa State, suffered the injury against the Cyclones. Team doctors Please see BOURBON, page 3B

and have different objectives on the field. In the only other meeting between the two as opponents, Walker’s Daingerfield High team got the better of Wright’s Pittsburg squad. But that was years ago. And all these two are focused on today is what happens in this next meeting. Wright, a senior, who enters the game atop the BU charts for career

receptions (267), receiving yards (3,312) and receiving touchdowns (25), said Walker has been in his ear throughout the week about the upcoming match-up. “Ever since Sunday, he’s been talking,” Wright said. “I guess he’s been waiting for this week. He said he can’t wait to hit me real hard, and I told him that’s gonna be hard if I’m running that much faster than he is.” Added Walker: “Kendall’s fast. He’s real fast. Here’s what he told me. He made a little comment saying I can’t hit what I can’t see, so I’ll try to make sure I get a good lick on him. At least one.” Such comments provided a glimpse into the other area where these two like to compete — trash talking. Wright said Walker talks more trash. Not surprisingly, Walker said Wright runs his mouth more. When it came to what to expect Saturday, the two were able to agree on one thing. “I’m pretty sure we’ll both be talking a lot on the field this weekend,” Wright said. Last year, when Walker was searching for a school to continue his football career after graduating from Navarro Junior College, Wright tried to get him to Baylor. It didn’t work out, but, through repeated trips to Waco, Texas, Walker became close with most of the Bears. Please see FOOTBALL, page 3B

Now Delivering For Lunch!

Penn St. fires legend Paterno STATE COLLEGE, PA. (AP) — Joe Paterno was fired by the Penn State board of trustees Wednesday night despite saying he would retire as coach after the football season ended, brought down by the growing furor over the handling of child sex abuse allegations against an assistant coach. Penn State President Graham Spanier was also ousted. “I am disappointed with the board of trustees’ decision, but I have to accept it,” the 84-yearold Paterno said in a statement. “A tragedy occurred, and we all have to have patience to let the legal process proceed.” Paterno, the winningest coach in major Paterno college football history, learned of the board’s decision at the end of a day that began with his decision to finish out his 46th season and leave. It was not to be. “The university is much larger than its athletic teams,” board vice chair John Surma said during a packed news conference. Paterno and Spanier were informed by telephone of the unanimous decisions to remove them. “We were unable to find a way to do that in person without causing further distraction,” Surma said. Defensive coordinator Tom Bradley will serve as interim coach while Rodney Erickson will be the interim school president. The university scheduled a news conference with Bradley for this morning. “The Penn State board of trustees tonight decided it is in the best interest of the university to have a change in leadership to deal with the difficult issues that we are facing,” Surma said. “The past several days have been absolutely terrible for the entire Penn State community. But the outrage that we feel is nothing compared to the physical and psychological suffering that allegedly took place.” Asked what Paterno did wrong, Surma said: “I can’t characterize that. We thought because of the difficulties that have engulfed our university, it was necessary to make changes.” Speaking outside his home, Paterno said: “Right now, I'm not the football coach. And I’ve got to get used to that. After 61 years, I’ve got to get used to it. I appreciate it. Let me think it through.” His wife, Sue, was teary-eyed as she blew kisses to about 100 students on the lawn. “You’re all so sweet. And I guess we have to go beat Nebraska without being there. We love you all. Go Penn State,” she said. Paterno said in a statement earlier Wednesday that he was “absolutely devastated” by the Please see PATERNO, page 2B

Deadline passes; NBA talks to resume today NEW YORK — NBA owners and players are done talking — just for the night. Both sides will be back bargaining at noon today, after meeting for nearly 12 hours Wednesday in an attempt to end the 132-day lockout. Commissioner David Stern says the league has “stopped the clock� and will continue to negotiate. He said: “I would not read into this optimism or pessimism.� Stern had set a deadline of 5 p.m. Wednesday for players to accept the league’s latest proposal or have it replaced by a much harsher one that would drive the sides even farther apart. He has set other deadlines during the work stoppage, and players said they wouldn’t be intimidated into taking a bad deal by his threat. They said Tuesday they wouldn’t accept the current proposal as configured and suggested another negotiation session. Failure to make a deal likely would increase the calls for the union to decertify so the players can file a lawsuit against the league in court, a risky and lengthy tactic that likely would doom the 2011-12 season. Union officials have downplayed the idea, but players might have no other leverage once the more severe proposal is put into play. The current offer calls for players to receive between 49 percent and 51 percent of basketball-related income, though the union said it would be impossible to get above 50.2 percent. Players were guaranteed 57 percent of BRI under the previous collective bargaining agreement. Though they called this deal unacceptable, they might not see another one nearly as favorable.

In the end, Joe Paterno got the word by telephone that Penn State’s Board of Trustees was firing him. The irony is selfevident. If he had picked up a telephone in 2002 and called the police when confronted with an eyewitness allegation that former assistant coach Jerry Sandusky was assaulting a young boy in a lockerroom shower, none of this might have happened. Children would have been saved from a lifetime of scarring. A football legacy would have been preserved. Instead, the phone rang in the split-level home on McKee Street on Wednesday night, and that was that. He was out and so was the university president, Graham Spanier. Paterno’s final power play had failed. In a morning statement, words typed on a computer, Paterno said he was resigning at the end of the season. It was his final attempt at control. He said he wanted to honor his commitments to his players and his staff, and that he wanted to make things as easy as possible for the Board of Trustees. This was untrue. This was not about any of that. The university’s inability to protect children from an alleged sexual predator within their midst — from the president of the school to his lieutenants in the administration; from the janitors who mopped the floors to the iconic football coach who built the empire — has brought us to this day. Paterno’s legacy is ruined. And he was playing for the history books, playing for time. That is what this was about, and that is why it was so important that the Board of Trustees not allow it to happen. There is nothing they can do about the past. But if they are to own the future — a future in which this inexplicable, misguided protection of an almighty football kingdom can never again be allowed to develop — this is exactly what Penn State needed to do. “I think I’ll leave it for all of you to decide what the message is,� said board vice chairman John P. Surma, who presided over an emotional, chaotic news conference Wednesday night with impressive restraint.� Why fire him now? “In our view, we thought a change now was necessary to enable, to allow, this process to continue,� Surma said. If Paterno had been allowed to stay — for one game or until the Nittany Lions’ bowl game, maybe into January — it would have been a circus. Worse than that, it would have enabled Paterno the opportunity potentially to shape both the board’s investigation into what happened from the inside, as well as a chance to spin the future. And make no mistake: This is about his image now, nothing else. Wednesday morning, Paterno’s son Scott, on Twitter, said that he would no longer be speaking on the matter and directed reporters to contact a public-relations firm from outside of Washington, D.C., whose website says, “We are a strategic partner for leading organizations facing their most difficult and important reputation challenges.� Well, then. Reputation challenges. The statement issued by Paterno, whoever wrote it, was a political masterpiece: sorrow for Sandusky’s alleged victims (although Paterno left out the “alleged� part); acknowledgement that, “With the benefit of hindsight, I wish I had done more,� and then the final, naked power play: saying he wanted to resign at the end of the season in order to make things as easy as possible for a Board of Trustees that “should not spend a single minute discussing my status.� It was a dare. It was an unspoken question. Who has the guts to fire Joe Paterno? After all of this time, who? It reminds you of a forgotten moment in history. The year was 1940. Then in high school, Paterno might have read about this in a newspaper the day after it happened. The early months of World War II were going badly for England and there was a bitter debate in the House of Commons. Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain, whose strategy of appeasing Adolf Hitler had so completely failed, was under attack from all parties, including his own. During the debate, Leo Amery, a member of Chamberlain’s own party, rose in denunciation. It was the decisive moment that resulted in Chamberlain losing office. Amery concluded his devastating attack by quoting Cromwell: “You have sat too long here for any good you have been doing. Depart, I say, and let us have done with you. In the name of God, go.� All of these decades later, that is where Penn State was with Joe Paterno on Wednesday night. But who would have the guts to tell him what he needed to be told? That is: In the name of God, go. As it turned out, the Penn State Board of Trustees did. They did it by telephone, it will forever be remembered.



OU suspends G Pledger NORMAN, OKLA. — Starting guard Steven Pledger has been suspended for Oklahoma’s season opener for a secondary violation of NCAA rules. Sooners coach Lon Kruger announced


abuse case, in which his former assistant and onetime heir apparent, Jerry Sandusky, has been charged with molesting eight boys over 15 years, with some of the alleged assaults taking place at the Penn State football complex. “This is a tragedy,� Paterno said. “It is one of the great sorrows of my life. With the benefit of hindsight, I wish I had done more.� Paterno has come under harsh criticism — including from within the community known as Happy Valley — for not taking more action in 2002 after then-graduate assistant and current assistant coach Mike McQueary came to him and reported seeing Sandusky in the Penn State showers with a young boy. Paterno notified the athletic director, Tim Curley, and a vice president, Gary Schultz. Paterno is not a target of the criminal investigation, although Curley and Schultz have been charged with failing to report the incident to the authorities. Hundreds of students gathered about two blocks from the campus, with some chanting “We want Joe! We want Joe!� Some shook a lamp post and others tipped over a news van, kicking out its windows. Police fired bursts of pepper gas. The firings came three days before Penn State hosts Nebraska in its final home game of the season, a day usually set aside to honor seniors on the team. The ouster of the man affectionately known as “JoePa� brings to an end one of the most storied coaching careers — not just in college football but in all of sports. Paterno has 409 victories — a record for major college football — won two national titles and

Wednesday that Pledger will sit out Friday’s game against Idaho State because he played in a pro-am game last summer. Pledger, who averaged 10.9 points last season, will be reinstated for the team’s next game Nov. 18 against Coppin State. According to documents released to The Associated Press after an open records request, Pledger failed to correctly submit an electronic form with the compliance department to get permission to play in the game. Compliance officials later noticed on Twitter that Pledger had participated and self-reported the violation to the NCAA. Pledger started 26 games for Oklahoma last season and was the team’s third-leading scorer.

Capel buyout: $1.75M NORMAN, OKLA. — Oklahoma paid former basketball coach Jeff Capel $1.75 million in addition to his monthly salary after firing him following back-to-back losing seasons. According to documents released Wednesday to the Associated Press in response to an open records request, Oklahoma continued to pay Capel his monthly salary through the end of June, under the terms of his contract. In addition to that, the documents show that Capel also received $500,000 extra at the end of May and a $1.25 million lump sum at the end of June.


Nationals catcher abducted CARACAS, VENEZUELA — Washington Nationals catcher Wilson Ramos was abducted by gunmen Wednesday from his home in his native Venezuela. Ramos, 24, was taken away in an SUV by four armed men in Santa Ines in central Carabobo state, Kathe Vilera, spokeswoman for the catcher’s Venezuelan League team, said through her official Twitter account. “This is sad, worrisome and true that Wilson Ramos has been kidnapped,� she said. Ramos was playing winter ball with the Aragua Tigers.

guided five teams to unbeaten, untied seasons. He reached 300 wins faster than any other coach. Penn State is 8-1 this year, with its only loss to powerhouse Alabama. The Nittany Lions are No. 12 in The Associated Press poll. After 19th-ranked Nebraska, Penn State plays at Ohio State and at No. 16 Wisconsin, both Big Ten rivals. It has a chance to play in the Big Ten championship game Dec. 3 in Indianapolis, with a Rose Bowl bid on the line. The board had already said it would appoint a committee to investigate the “circumstances� that resulted in the indictment of Sandusky, and of Curley and Schultz. In Washington, the U.S. Department of Education said it has launched an investigation into whether Penn State failed to report incidents of sexual abuse on campus, as required by federal law. Sandusky, who retired from Penn State in June 1999, maintained his innocence through his lawyer. Curley has taken a leave of absence and Schultz has decided to step down. They also say they are innocent. The committee will be appointed Friday at the board’s regular meeting, which Gov. Tom Corbett said he plans to attend, and will examine “what failures occurred and who is responsible and what measures are necessary to ensure� similar mistakes aren’t made in the future. Surma said McQueary would retain his job for now. Sandusky founded The Second Mile charity in 1977, working with at-risk youths. It now raises and spends several million dollars each year for its programs. “I am disappointed with the board of trustees’ decision, but I have to accept it,� Paterno said in a statement. “A tragedy occurred, and we all have to have patience to let the legal process proceed.�

LHS pitcher Cleavinger signs with Oregon By Benton Smith

A left-handed ace for the Lawrence High baseball team, senior pitcher Garrett Cleavinger had options when it was time to pick his college destination. He could stay right here in town, and play for Kansas University, in the Big 12. He could migrate a few hours northwest and play for Nebraska, in the Big Ten. Then there was Door No. 3: Oregon. Way out in Pac-12 country, in the Pacific Northwest. Choosing the right program was a difficult decision. LHS baseball coach Brad Stoll could see it weighing on Cleavinger. “He had a lot of great offers out there from a lot of great universities and programs. I didn’t envy him, man,” the coach said. Wednesday, however, Cleavinger was the envy of a throng of students in the LHS library after school, where he made his decision official by signing with the Oregon Ducks.

The 6-foot-1 pitcher strolled up to a table wearing a gray Oregon T-shirt and received a huge round of applause from his fellow students, many donning Ducks gear of their own. After putting his name on the dotted line and making it official, he stood up and thanked them all, as well as friends, family and LHS staff, for coming. “It’s a big deal, for me at least,” he said. Cleavinger’s relationship with Oregon baseball began this past summer, in Tulsa, Okla., when he met one of the Ducks’ recruiting coordinators, assistant coach Mark Wasikowski. The LHS lefty hit it off with the assistant, and a few months back he visited the Eugene, Ore., campus and loved it. “I was really comfortable around all the coaches, and the players were real nice and everything,” Cleavinger said. He made his decision a few weeks ago and immediately felt relieved. “It’s been a stressful process over the last year-anda-half,” Cleavinger said. “It’s

I can do … I think I’m gonna go in and be a starter,” Cleavinger said. The signing ceremony made the pitcher appreciative of all the years of baseball that led to the moment and made it possible. “I’m always gonna remember playing with my little league team in Baldwin,” he said, adding that he has had “great memories” with the rest of the LHS baseball senior class. Stoll said Cleavinger has meant a lot to the Lawrence baseball program during the past few years, with his ability to bring fire and energy to the mound and make major jumps in velocity and competitiveness. But the coach said the lefty still has work to do for the Lions. “If he thinks it’s gonna be easy just because he signed Division I, it’s not over yet,” Stoll said with a grin. Still, he couldn’t help, on Cleavinger’s signing day, but look ahead. “It’s gonna be exciting to see what happens to him here in three or four years of college baseball,” Stoll said.

much of his free time as a youth basketball instructor and volunteer at the Wichita Children’s Home. “He’s so talented and going to be great. The fact he has never made a B. The fact he’s competitive in the classroom. The fact he will be a great ambassador for our university and athletic program, shows that he comes from great parents in Fonda and Will,” Self said. “They do a remarkable job with their children. We’re really excited about having this family be a part of everything we do. He’s had a nice blend of summer and high school, where everybody is on the same page.” Two of Ellis’ teammates also signed letters at the ceremony to kick off the first day of the weeklong signing period. Terrence Moore inked with Emporia State and Gavin Thurman with Missouri State. “I knew for so long. I’ve been there so many times. I

felt so comfortable there,” Ellis said of the reason he chose KU over Kansas State, Kentucky and Wichita State. “It (comfort level) made me realize that was the school. It’s one of the top programs. I’m going to try to be a part of it. “He (Self) was the first to come to my games my freshman year. That really impressed me and humbled me,” Ellis added. “He’s a real good person and I’m excited to play for him.” O Why No. 34?: Ellis’ mom said Perry has worn No. 34 since third grade. “He was a Shaq (O’Neal) fan back then and has kept that number ever since,” she said. O Zach next: Zach Peters, a 6-9 forward from Prestonwood Christian Academy in Plano, Texas, who is ranked No. 144 by, will sign with KU at a banquet on Monday. Peters committed to KU on April 21, 2010. He averaged 15.3 points and 9.0 rebounds a game last season. A wide receiver for his school’s football team, Peters has 42 catches for 549 yards and nine touchdowns for the 7-2 Lions.

O Lucas to visit today: Landen Lucas, a 6-8, 240-pound senior forward from Westview High in Portland, Ore., today will begin an official recruiting visit to KU. Lucas, who is currently unranked, is considering KU, Cal, Stanford, Tennessee and Washington. He played at Las Vegas’ Findlay Prep last year. “Lucas is considered one of the better power forward/ center-types on the West Coast,” writes “Due to his physical nature and advanced skill set he should be a viable recruit for the high-major level. He doesn’t have great bounce, but he does have good hands, excellent foot work and a high basketball IQ to compete at that level.” O Recruiting class No. 24: has KU’s recruiting class ranked the 24th best in the country with one semester to go. KU will have two scholarships left to award if Thomas Robinson, as expected, turns pro after the season. KU would have three to give if Justin Wesley returned to walk-on status.

He is on scholarship this year after transferring from Lamar as a walk-on. O The losses: KU most recently lost No. 20-rated center Kaleb Tarczewski to Arizona. Earlier, J’Mychal Reese picked Texas A&M, Ioannis Papapetrou selected Texas, and Marcus Smart tapped Oklahoma State. Recruits that remain available include No. 56 Andrew White, 6-6 from Miller School in Chester, Va. “We still have a chance to have a very good recruiting class. We obviously have missed out on a couple guys that certainly we felt would be difference-makers. I do think there’s other guys out there. Certainly we’re on top of those guys,” Self said. “Recruiting is a neverending deal,” he added. “Several of the key players in this class aren’t going to sign early. We’ll still continue to recruit some guys.” Players in last year’s recruiting class who will be eligible at KU next season: No. 34 Ben McLemore, 6-5 from St. Louis; and No. 141 Jamari Traylor, 6-8 from Chicago.

“It’s crazy because, it’s not just Kendall,” Walker said. “I basically know the whole Baylor team. They all know me, and it’s exciting for us to get to play against each other.” That includes the man Walker referred to as “The Other Robert Griffin,” BU offensive lineman Robert T. Griffin, a 6-6, 330-pound senior and former teammate of Walker’s at Navarro, who owns the same name as Baylor’s Heisman Trophy candidate quarterback, Robert Griffin III. “He left a year earlier than I did, so it will be exciting to play against him, too,” Walker said. “I haven’t gone against him before. And he knows I’m gonna be out there giving him a hard time, too.” So far this season, Wright, a senior, leads the Bears receivers with 971 yards and nine touchdowns on 73 receptions. In addition, Wright has rushed five times for 46 yards and also thrown three passes. He completed two of them for 55 yards and a touchdown.

“Kendall’s been good his whole life,” Walker said. “Kendall’s been something special in our area since he was young. Ever since we were freshmen in high school, Kendall was always a great athlete. He jumped right in when he got to Baylor, and it wasn’t a shock to anybody.” This weekend’s match-up also has extra meaning for Wright, whose nephew, KU freshman JaCorey Shepherd, will be trying to emulate his uncle by catching passes for the Jayhawks. Still, the main event, as far as Wright’s concerned, is the firsthand showdown with one of his oldest friends. “It’s great,” Wright said. “Most people don’t get the chances that we get, and it’s great just to see him doing his thing and handling his business out there.” Added Walker: “This is bigger than me and Kendall, because all our friends back home are excited for it and everybody’s calling each other up saying, ‘Are you ready?’ That makes it even more exciting. I threw a couple things at him that I plan on doing. I hope I get the opportunity to do it. Just to hit him. I’ll be excited just to hit him. I won’t let up. He knows I won’t let up.”


determined this week that the best thing for Bourbon would be to shut it down for the season and look toward next year. “He’s disappointed,” Gill said. “I’ve been on that side of it, but we all have to look out for what’s best for him.” In eight games this season, Bourbon gained 190 yards on 28 carries and scored one touchdown, a 51-yard run against Texas Tech. The yardage totals rank him fourth on the team, which, thanks to the presence of James Sims, Darrian Miller and Tony Pierson, should be able to handle the loss of a running back. Still, Bourbon’s backfield mates said they’d miss having him available. “We gotta work with what we have,” said Miller, a freshman who ranks second on the team with 396 yards and four TDs in 101 carries. “But at the same time, it does take a piece away from the puzzle, and it’s going to be hard playing without him.” After red-shirting in 2010, Bourbon, 6-foot-1, 208 pounds, from Potosi, Mo., missed most of spring drills this season because of injury.

Making the world safe for new Pepsi generations As fans of “Mad Men” know, advertising can convince us of anything. And Don Draper and company worked in the days before corporate product placements and hourlong puff pieces like “Pepsi’s Challenge” (8 p.m., CNBC). The title refers to the Pepsi Challenge of vintage TV ads. But the corporation profiled here is more than a bottler of dark, bubbly liquid. It distributes other food and beverages, from Cap’n Crunch cereal and Fritos to Tropicana Orange Juice. In soft drink sales, Pepsi has dropped from the perennial No. 2 to third behind Coke and Diet Coke. The corporation, known as PepsiCo, wants to be successful in other areas of the food market, including products that are “fun” to eat (i.e. snacks and “junk” food) and products that are “good” for you (oatmeal, orange juice, etc.). The most interesting aspects of “Challenge” focus on the world-traveling scientists foraging through jungles and remote Chinese provinces in search of the root, leaf or berry that could contribute to the healthy, non-sugar sweetener of tomorrow. The show also profiles PepsiCo CEO Indra Nooyi, who has endeavored to change the corporation’s junk food image to that of a provider of healthy food alternatives. While her supporters think this is an essential move to ensure PepsiCo’s growth and survival, others fear she is taking her eye off the central competition with Coke. Still, others think it is duplicitous at best to confuse junk food with healthy food, particularly at a time when obesity has become an epidemic. And some question the wisdom or morality of bottling Pepsi in places like Nooyi’s native India, where clean, accessible drinking water is increasingly scarce. So, one wonders, what would Don Draper do? Would he spin PepsiCo as “good for you”? Or double down on the addictive nature of sweet and salty snacks? Or maybe this is a job for Homer Simpson: “Mmmm ... snacks.”

But if they don’t bring it up, you can casually ask, “Is it convenient for me to stop by on the 15th as usual?” This gives them the opportunity to let you know if their circumstances have changed.

JACQUELINE BIGAR’S STARS For Thursday, Nov. 10: This year you can open up to new changes and greater possibilities. You see the world more openly. If you are single, establishing a new relationship with your birthday on a Full Moon guarantees suitors, but not necessarily peaceful relating. If you are attached, the two of you look to a better year, but you need to have equality. Taurus can be extremely challenging.

Dear Annie: I recently turned 50, and I hate it. I wasn’t bothered when I turned 40, but this birthday is really eating at me. I used to be very athletic, but with all the abuse I put my body through, I had to quit playing sports. I was well on my way into a depression when a woman half my age came into my life. I love my wife dearly, and we have been together for more than 25 years. I would never cheat on her, but I can’t seem to get “Wanda” out of my head. She really has shown an interest in me. We email each other and have gone out for lunch a couple of times, and I find myself growing quite fond of her. Is this what they call a midlife crisis? I want to tell Wanda how I feel about her, thinking maybe it would scare her away. I don’t know what to do. Well, I do know what to do. I just need to hear it from someone else. — Desperate for Help Dear Desperate: Yes, this is what is called a midlife crisis. You are at a vulnerable age. Your life is probably past the halfway point, and it is intoxicating to find that Wanda is attracted to you. It makes you feel young again. The flirtation is already a form of betrayal, and continued contact is likely to lead to an affair, whether you intend it or not. You are smart enough to

Middleton hurt; Aggies roll The Aggies outrebounded the Flames 39-29, with Elston Turner, Ray Turner and Keith Davis grabbing six boards apiece. A&M is one of 12 teams in the country that has been to six consecutive NCAA tournaments.

No. 20 Texas A&M 81, Liberty 59 COLLEGE STATION, TEXAS — An early injury to standout guard Khris Middleton hardly slowed down Texas A&M. Ray Turner scored a career-high 20 points and the 20th-ranked Aggies shot 65 percent from the field while cruising past Liberty 81-59 on Wednesday night in the season opener for both teams. “We came out and ran the floor just like we’ve been doing in practice,” Turner said. “We’ve just got to keep playing consistent, hard, and not give up on loose-ball plays. We’ve got to keep the intensity up.” Texas A&M played without first-year coach Billy Kennedy, on leave following his recent diagnosis of an early stage of Parkinson’s disease. Associate head coach Glynn Cyprien has run the team in Kennedy’s absence. Kennedy has visited the arena daily over the past week and Cyprien has said the coach is expected back full-time “soon.” Kennedy was at Reed Arena for the game and talked to the team in the locker room afterward, Cyprien said. Middleton left the game in the first half with a hamstring injury and is day to day, Cyprien said. Middleton played 10 minutes and scored six points. Texas A&M put away the Flames early with a 24-4 run midway through the first half. The Aggies shot 59.3 percent (16 of 27) from the field in the
