From sands of Iraq to the halls of learning ————

Marine one of first to attend KU on Wounded Warrior Scholarship By Matt Erickson merickson@ljworld.com

Anthony Schmiedeler had been to a war zone. But he wasn’t ready for community college.

T h e tougher transit i o n , though, was going from that to the crowded hallways and classrooms of Johnson County Community College. “It was just too many people in a little tiny area,� Schmiedeler said. “I didn’t know any of these people. I was paranoid. I didn’t trust any of these people.� His biggest fear in Iraq had been “coming back crazy.� He would learn that he wasn’t crazy. He would soon be diagnosed with posttraumatic stress disorder, start undergoing therapy and begin taking medication for it. Now he’s working toward a degree in graphic design from Kansas University, as a 25-year-old junior.

Plan must balance several interests By Sara Shepherd sshepherd@ljworld.com

BEFORE COMING TO SCHOOL AT KANSAS UNIVERSITY, junior Anthony Schmiedeler, Kansas City, Kan., did two tours in Iraq with the U.S. Marines. He is currently studying graphic design and is one of two winners of the university’s first Wounded Warrior Scholarships. And now he’ll be able to get that degree without going into debt because he’s one of the first two students to receive a Wounded Warrior Scholarship from Kansas University. KU’s Office of Graduate Military Programs last week announced two recipients for the scholarship, meant to help injured veterans or the family members who care for them earn KU degrees, for its first year.

For Schmiedeler — and for the husband of Jennifer Thornton of Leavenworth, the caregiver who won the other scholarship — it isn’t an injury to his body that makes him a Wounded Warrior. It’s the scars left on his brain. Randy Masten, assistant director for the Graduate Military Programs office, said this fits perfectly with the scholarship’s mission: to offer a helping hand to

people who’ve already sacrificed a lot to help out their country. “Your life experience to the point of that injury is completely different from what it is after that event,� Masten said. “Whether caused by a physical injury or a mental one, it doesn’t change the fact that these folks can use the help.�

‘Pretty surreal’ Schmiedeler’s journey to this point began when

he and his twin brother, Ehren, persuaded their mother to allow them to sign up for the Marine Corps when they were 17. They entered the Marines after they graduated from high school in Kansas City, Kan., in 2005, and both trained together at Camp Lejeune, N.C. They wound up deploying twice to Iraq, at roughly the same time

As Lawrence looks to take advantage of its cultural heritage in hopes of encouraging economic development, it faces a dilemma: What if the efforts end up pushing out some of the very people who give the targeted neighborhoods their unique flavor? The area covered by Lawrence’s newly designated cultural district is home to many low-income residents and artists, some who fear attention and improvements might increase property values so much that they could no longer afford to live and work there. That’s called gentrification, and it’s an unwanted consequence that experts say is a real concern as the Lawrence Arts Center pursues a prestigious “creative placemaking� grant. But it’s one that can be avoided by devising the right plan and executing it the right way. “It’s a question that always comes up,� said Laura Zabel, a Kansas University graduate

Mrs. Kansas uses platform to raise awareness on homelessness By Giles Bruce gbruce@ljworld.com

Elizabeth Stevens grew up poor and now works at a homeless shelter, a job she refers to as her “fourth child.� So when the Lawrence woman got the opportunity to raise awareness about poverty on the regional and national stage, she jumped at it — even if it did involve posing in a bathing suit. Last month, Stevens was crowned Mrs. Kansas, and will compete for the national title later this

The 32-year-old is using the platform to shine a light on family homelessness in America. It’s a topic she knows about from experience. She was raised like a lot of her clients at the Lawrence Community Shelter:

Warrior and in roughly the same place. Anthonyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s job was to patrol the streets of Fallujah and search for improvised explosive devices. He said he â&#x20AC;&#x153;saw a lot of crazy stuff,â&#x20AC;? and left it at that. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Pretty surreal,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the best way to describe it.â&#x20AC;? Ehren provided some more detail: Anthony was fired on at least once, and his vehicle once struck a mine, but he was never seriously injured. Nothing could have prepared him for an environment where he was constantly on lookout for someone trying to kill him, Anthony said. But for some reason, being there wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t as nerve-racking as trying to attend community-college classes after he was discharged in 2009. All the people walking around him made him anxious. Any loud noise set off alarm bells inside. He couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t sleep at night, never sure whether he was dreaming or having a waking flashback, and that meant he was always late to class. He was drifting, unsure what he was really doing in school. He felt like the people walking around him were always sneaking up on him. And then when he told one of them that heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d just returned from Iraq, the first question would always be: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Did you kill anybody?â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know how to talk to regular people,â&#x20AC;? Schmiedeler said. He was sort of â&#x20AC;&#x153;floating along,â&#x20AC;? he said, but then he did something about it. He contacted Veterans Affairs for help and was diagnosed with PTSD. He went to therapy and got a prescription. And all of a sudden it felt as if his life had a direction to move in. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As soon as I started talking to somebody, everything was better,â&#x20AC;? Schmiedeler said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was able to get those feelings out, and they told me I wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the only one. And that was just nice to know.â&#x20AC;? He hopes other veterans, too, can ask for help without fear. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just the right thing to do, he said.

to watch the 2008 NCAA Tournament Championship Game. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was the only one awake,â&#x20AC;? he said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;and I was yelling.â&#x20AC;?) Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d always loved to draw, and he settled on graphic design as a major. In February he won one of three student awards at an annual Kansas City American Advertising Federation ceremony for his work. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He is amazing at what he does,â&#x20AC;? said his brother Ehren, who left the Marines at the same time as Anthony and is set to graduate in December from KU with a civil engineering degree. Anthony was a good Marine, too, Ehren said. He was promoted to sergeant within his four years, which isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t easy. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s due to graduate in spring 2014, but thanks in part to his â&#x20AC;&#x153;floatingâ&#x20AC;? period early on, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll have exhausted his post-9/11 GI Bill funding by the end of this semester. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s where this Wounded Warrior Scholarship comes in. The scholarship pays up to $10,000 per year, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s renewable for four years. The Office of Graduate Military Studies created it with the help of a number of private gifts, after the U.S. Army opted not to continue another Wounded Warrior Scholarship program for graduate studies at KU. This one is open to undergraduates or graduates, injured veterans or their caretakers whose lives have been forever altered, and to veterans whose scars are physical or mental. There might be more available in future years, Masten said, and it was tough to narrow it to two this year. But it was clear Anthony would make good use of it, he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We just want to ensure that he goes from this point through graduation,â&#x20AC;? Masten said. And now that thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s available money on the table, he might go further. He loves school now. Schmiedeler said heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pondering a Master of Fine Arts, which would further increase his job prospects. He hopes to do graphic design for a nonprofit or a public agency. Now heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s got a path free of debt. And all he had to do was ask for some help. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not the first time heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s done that, after all.

A new path Schmiedeler transferred to KU in fall 2010, after long feeling a connection. (One of his happiest memories from Iraq is staying up until 4 a.m.

and executive director of Minnesota-based Springboard for the Arts, an artist-centric economic development organization. Zabel said the key to successful placemaking is involving all stakeholders from the beginning to ensure that theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re part of changes and that plans represent their interests. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I feel like this is a strategy that really is more about authentic community development,â&#x20AC;? Zabel said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about growing and supporting and feeding whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s local, and in that way it can be a strategy that allows a neighborhood to grow ... without displacing the people who are already in place.â&#x20AC;? Lawrence is pursuing two avenues for creative placemaking. The Lawrence Arts Center successfully spearheaded the City Commissionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s recent designation of downtown and adjacent residential neighborhoods as a cultural district, which a grant from the Kansas Creative Arts Industries Commission could help flesh out at the city level. The Arts Center also is a national finalist for an ArtPlace grant that would fund creative placemaking efforts in the form of a public art project. Dozens of stakeholders signed a letter in support of the cultural district, including the East Lawrence Neighborhood Association. Neighborhood President Josh Davis said heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cautiously optimistic. Davis has refurbished and lived in two old houses during his 13 years in East Lawrence and has grown to love the potpourri of personalities that are his neighbors. He wants to be sure planners remember theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re dealing with peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lives, not just landmarks and dots on a map. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a phenomenal conglomeration of a lot of different folks,â&#x20AC;? Davis said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It feels like an itty-bitty small town inside of a big town.â&#x20AC;? Davis is trying to represent the neighborhoodâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s many artists â&#x20AC;&#x201D; who stand to benefit from attention

she wanted to leave Lawrence and never look back. She worked in Johnson County as a cosmetologist. But after divorcing her husband, who was then serving in Iraq, and with kids to support, she decided it was time to go to college. She enrolled at Kansas University and got a job at Womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Transitional Care Services, now the Willow Domestic Violence Center. Domestic violence was another issue she had personal experience with, having seen it directed at her mom and aunt. Working with survivors of domestic and sexual abuse was â&#x20AC;&#x153;incredibly empowering for me,â&#x20AC;? said Stevens, who told herself: â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is what I need to be doing.â&#x20AC;? Stevens soon met her current husband, who also worked in social services, and got hired at the local homeless shelter. When the Salvation Army closed its overnight shelter in 2009, local homeless families were suddenly left with nowhere to go. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s when the Lawrence Community Shelter opened its doors to parents and children.

Stevens designed the family program herself. She left the shelter for two years to work at Bert Nash Community Mental Health Center but came back last May, in time for the shelterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s move to a newer, larger facility in southeast Lawrence at the end of last year. The shelter, under Stevensâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; direction, has expanded its family programs, which focus on identifying residentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; strengths and using them to advance their life goals. Since Stevens returned to the center, she has helped eight families find permanent housing.

picking up ideas she might be able to implement back in Lawrence. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I try to be realistic,â&#x20AC;? she acknowledges, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not going to change the world. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not going to solve homelessness. Small, attainable goals is what we focus on.â&#x20AC;? Stevens aims to be that tiny slice of positivity in peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s otherwise-turbulent lives that gives them a different view, â&#x20AC;&#x153;that makes them believe in themselves,â&#x20AC;? she said. She also wants to overcome the ignorance many American have about poverty and homelessness. She once spoke at an elementary school where afterward a woman told her, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re just so poised and pretty; I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t believe that you grew up poor.â&#x20AC;? Stevens was floored. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like to be able be to change that mentality: that if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re poor, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to be that way forever,â&#x20AC;? she said.

December, said people need to be aware that homelessness can happen to anybody. And thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no one better to carry that message than Stevens. He said she does an â&#x20AC;&#x153;amazing jobâ&#x20AC;? at the shelter. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the entire program. She wears all the hats.â&#x20AC;? Stevens could get an even bigger pulpit from which to tell the story of homelessness if sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s named Mrs. America this August in Tucson, Ariz. Until then, she wants to inform not only the general public, but also people who are themselves struggling and unable to envision a way out. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I would like to show folks that they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to continue life the way itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been laid out for them,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They can make changes in their lives and truly dream big and do something that means something to them.â&#x20AC;?

Small Kansas town went bust in clouds of dust By Amy Bickel The Hutchinson News

WILBURTON â&#x20AC;&#x201D; When 2-year-old Rena Coen died of dust pneumonia, the closest cemetery was covered in drifts of dirt. So the Morton County farm family with seven sons buried their only girl in the

Rolla Cemetery â&#x20AC;&#x201D; just one of several causalities of the Dirty Thirties. Her brother, Dale, now 91, recalls those days well, remembering how as a teen he would watch the billowing clouds of dust roll in, darkening the sky and leaving dust covering almost every foot of the family farmstead â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a

dust that was easily inhaled deep into the lungs. It also blanketed the Wilburton cemetery. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was blowed under from the dust,â&#x20AC;? he said, adding the Wilburton cemetery called Prairie Flower wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t wellkept, either. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A bunch of us boys, four or five of us, dug it out, got the markers dug

out so the graves wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be lost.â&#x20AC;? Wilburton, too, didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t survive through the dust storms and the Great Depression. Today, only a few homes dot the prairie landscape where a thriving community once stood. Please see TOWN, page 4A

School board moving ahead on projects By Peter Hancock phancock@ljworld.com

Barely a week after voters approved a $92.5 million bond issue, Lawrence school officials want to move quickly on construction and renovation projects, starting with the hiring of a construction manager who will supervise much of the process. The Lawrence school board will be asked tonight to approve a $107,000 contract with Dean Youngers to serve as construction manager on the projects. Assistant Superintendent Kyle Hayden said Youngers was selected after interviewing a number of construction managers who have handled other major school projects in Kansas. He said Youngers served as project manager for a similar $97.5 million set of bond-funded projects in the Manhattan-Ogden school district. The bonds approved last week for the Lawrence district will go for remodeling and additions to the 14 elementary schools and two high schools, as well as upgrading technology throughout the district and expanding facilities for career and technical education programs. The board will also be asked today to renew the districtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one-half mill property tax authority to fund adult education services. Since 1985, school districts in Kansas have had authority to levy up to half a mill to fund adult education, but districts have to vote to renew that authority every five years. Currently, the Lawrence district levies about four-tenths of a mill, which generates about $360,000. The adult education program also receives direct state and federal funding, as well as a small amount from a county tax levy for a total budget this year of $645,000. The board will also be asked to appoint board member Bob Byers to the districtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s negotiating committee to work on the next collective bargaining agreement with the Lawrence Education Association. Byers would replace board president Vanessa Sanburn on the committee. The school board will meet at 7 p.m. tonight at the district office, 110 McDonald Drive. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Peter Hancock can be reached at 832-7259. Follow him at Twitter. com/LJWpqhancock.

Q:

The city of Lawrence has a new policy on sanitation and solid waste carts. I thought that with this new policy, there would be no extra charge for an extra cart. Can you explain the cart policy please? Megan Gilliland, the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s communications manager, provided this information: In 2012, the city implemented a variable rate pricing structure for solid waste services, and included a 65-gallon trash cart as the standard size. A 65-gallon cart is included in the standard monthly rate of $14.94. Other sizes are available (one larger, one smaller), and the monthly rate is $16.94 or $13.44, depending on size. Residents can request an additional trash cart for a fee ($4/ month for a 95-gallon cart, $3/month for a 65-gallon cart and $2/month for a 35-gallon cart). The additional cart fee covers landfill costs of the additional trash collected and

cart maintenance. From November 2012 to February 2013, the city worked to â&#x20AC;&#x153;right-sizeâ&#x20AC;? carts for residents and switched out carts for differing sizes as requested. The city will provide one cart size change per address (owner/occupant) per calendar year free of charge. The city will charge a $20 service fee for any additional requests to change cart sizes. All trash needs to be placed in the trash cart for collection. The monthly solid waste fee pays for trash collection at the curb, yard waste collection, household hazardous waste disposal services, bulk item pickup, city drop-off recycling locations and other solid waste services.

BIRMINGHAM, ALA. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; For a few moments at Birminghamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Avondale Park, baseball caps were removed, the metallic thump of aluminum bats abated and loudspeakers were silenced as a crowd of young athletes and spectators paused to honor the 10-year-old boy who died two weeks ago at the Birmingham airport. Al.com reported the Southside Ball Association held a tribute for Luke Bresette, the Overland Park, Kan., boy killed March 22 when a flight information display sign fell on him and his family at the Birmingham-Shuttlesworth International Airport. Ten children clutching balloons gathered on the pitcherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mound, then released the 10 balloons â&#x20AC;&#x201D; one for each year of Lukeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s life. Then there

was a moment of silence Saturday at 10:05 a.m., the same time Lukeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s funeral service began in Kansas. Christine McLean, an SBA board member, encouraged the crowd to honor Luke however they chose â&#x20AC;&#x201D; by saying a prayer or thinking about his family as his funeral began. Because Luke was an avid sports fan, his family decided to start his funeral service five minutes after the hour, as most Major League Baseball games begin at five past the hour. McLean said a picture of Luke, arms outstretched with a Jedi Knight certificate, resounded with her because her son had earned a similar certificate in December. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I wanted Lukeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s family to know that we feel terrible about what happened and that we support them,â&#x20AC;? said Christine McLean, an SBA board member.

Town CONTINUED FROM PAGE 3A

Around the turn of the 20th century, pioneers began to settle Morton County and began working the ground. They lived in dugouts, half in the ground and half out, the top half of rough lumber covered with tarpaper on the sides and roof. Settlers then threw a few inches of dirt on the roof, making these homes cool in the summer and warm in the winter, according to the history book â&#x20AC;&#x153;Morton County 1886-1986 - Cornerstone of Kansas.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;The population of the town for many years was in the hundreds,â&#x20AC;? the book states. But as more plows took to the treeless Plains, the dust began blowing. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They looked awful coming toward you,â&#x20AC;? Coen said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They would get here and it would roll over the top of you. And then it would keep going. Sometimes it would be bad enough it would block out

the sun, the dust was like evening. We had one that was especially bad that you couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t see the hand in front of your face.â&#x20AC;? When the Great Depression hit, population began to dwindle across the hardest hit states like Kansas and Oklahoma. The exodus of people included Morton County, the heart of the Dust Bowl. Lawrence Smith, 86, said he still takes flowers to Wilburtonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Prairie Flower Cemetery, placing them on his grandmotherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s grave. Smith recalls the good old days, when Wilburton residents had ice cream socials along the Cimarron River and there were barn dances just outside of town. Today, however, the town has just a few homes, along with the cemetery. The church was moved away and turned into a house, said Coen. The schools were torn down. There is no longer any indication there ever was a business district, much less a town, in this spot. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You can drive by and not know it was there,â&#x20AC;? Coen said.

A Lawrence man died Saturday evening after crashing his motorcycle on Interstate 470 in Topeka. John Williamson, 59, died after he lost control of his 2009 Harley Davidson and crashed at about 5:45 p.m., according to the Kansas Turnpike Authority accident report. The accident occurred at Milepost 178, which is one mile east of the South Topeka exit of the Kansas Turnpike. Two other motorcycle riders were involved in a chain-reaction crash. Vernon Riddle, 43, Topeka, was traveling behind Williamson when Williamson crashed. Riddle braked to avoid Williamson, lost control of his 2005 Harley Davidson motorcycle and crashed. Traveling behind Riddle was Dustin Casto, 34, Burlingame, who lost control of his 2001 Harley Davidson motorcycle, went into a ditch and crashed. Riddle was transported to a hospital for injuries, and Casto had possible injuries but was not taken to a hospital. A Highway Patrol trooper reported that Williamson was wearing a helmet and

also reported that seven motorcycles were traveling together to Lawrence at the time of the wreck.

1 dead, 3 injured after shooting MANHATTAN (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; One person has been taken into custody after an early morning shooting in Manhattan left one person dead and three others hospitalized. The Riley County Police Department said the shooting happened around 4:10 a.m. Sunday at an apartment complex. Police reassured the public that there didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t appear to be â&#x20AC;&#x153;any further danger.â&#x20AC;? Anyone with information was urged to call Manhattan/Riley County Crime Stoppers. No other details were immediately released, including the name of the victim or the person who was arrested.

Broadcasters worry about â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Zero TVâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; homes LOS ANGELES (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Some people have had it with TV. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had enough of the 100plus channel universe. They donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like timing their lives around network show schedules. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re tired of $100-plus monthly bills. A growing number of them have stopped paying for cable and satellite TV service, and donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even use an antenna to get free signals over the air. These people are watching shows and movies on the Internet, sometimes via cellphone connections. Last month, the Nielsen Co. started labeling people in this group â&#x20AC;&#x153;Zero TVâ&#x20AC;? households, because they fall outside the traditional definition of a

TV home. There are 5 million of these residences in the U.S., up from 2 million in 2007. Winning back the Zero TV crowd will be one of the many issues broadcasters discuss at their national meeting, called the NAB Show, taking place this week in Las Vegas. While show creators and networks make money from this groupâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s viewing habits through deals with online video providers and from advertising on their own websites and apps, broadcasters only get paid when they relay such programming in traditional ways. Unless broadcasters can adapt to modern platforms, their revenue from Zero TV viewers will be zero.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Getting broadcast programing on all the gizmos and gadgets â&#x20AC;&#x201D; like tablets, the backseats of cars, and laptops â&#x20AC;&#x201D; is hugely important,â&#x20AC;? says Dennis Wharton, a spokesman for the National Association of Broadcasters. Although Wharton says more than 130 TV stations in the U.S. are broadcasting live TV signals to mobile devices, few people have the tools to receive them. Most cellphones require an addon device known as a dongle, but these gadgets are just starting to be sold. For the first time, TV ratings giant Nielsen took a close look at this category of viewer in its quarterly video report released in March. It plans to measure

their viewing of new TV shows starting this fall, with an eye toward incorporating the results in the formula used to calculate ad rates. The Zero TV segment is increasingly important, because the number of people signing up for traditional TV service has slowed to a standstill in the U.S. Last year, the cable, satellite and telecoms providers added just 46,000 video customers collectively, according to research firm SNL Kagan. That is tiny when compared to the 974,000 new households created last year. While itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s still 100.4 million homes, or 84.7 percent of all households, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s down from the peak of 87.3 percent in early 2010.

Local economy small compared with neighbors Town Talk

The U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis recently released its annual report on the size of local economies. (They call it the Gross Domestic Product for metropolitan areas, but it basically is just a measurement of all the economic activity in a community.) I normally find the report interesting because it reminds me of something that we perhaps forget from time to time. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re small â&#x20AC;&#x201D; at least when it comes to the size of our business community. The latest report â&#x20AC;&#x201D; which measures 2011 economic activity â&#x20AC;&#x201D; shows Lawrence had an economy of $3.56 billion. That ranked Lawrence 339 out of the 366 metro areas. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s where we are ranked currently. We wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be ranked there long, unless we start to see a rebound. The BEA report found Lawrenceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s economy actually shrank in 2011 by 1.7 percent. (Note: The BEA uses some inflationadjusted dollars to determine if an economy has grown or shrunk. Without that inflation adjustment, we grew a bit.) The negative 1.7 percent growth rate ranked us 338 out of the 366 metro areas. We also were well below the average growth rate for a metro area, which checked in at 1.6 percent. What is interesting about the BEA list is just how much smaller Lawrence is â&#x20AC;&#x201D; at least in economic size â&#x20AC;&#x201D; to several other cities that we compare ourselves to. A few that jumped out at me included Columbia, Mo. Columbia has an economy of $6.91 billion compared to Lawrenceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s $3.56 billion. Even Joplin, Mo., is quite a bit bigger than Lawrence, checking in at $5.97 billion. But the one that really stuck with me was â&#x20AC;&#x201D; you guessed it â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Manhattan. The home of Kansas State University has an economy of $6.5 billion. Manhattanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s economy is nearly twice as large as Lawrenceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s. That seems hard to believe, but

that is what the numbers show. While that sinks in, hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a look at several other cities of interest:

Lawrence: $3.56 billion in 2011. Rank: 339

Ames, Iowa: $4.24 billion. Rank: 309

Austin, Texas: $90.91 billion. Rank: 34

Boulder, Colo.: $19.35 billion. Rank 111

Columbia, Mo.: $6.91 billion. Rank 218

Fort Collins, Colo: $12.0 billion. Rank 159

Iowa City: $7.90 billion. Rank: 208

Joplin, Mo.: $5.97 billion. Rank: 246

Kansas City, Mo./Kan.: $108.1 billion. Rank 26

Lubbock, Texas: $10.53 billion. Rank: 173

Madison, Wis.: $36.52 billion. Rank: 63

Manhattan: $6.5 billion. Rank: 230

Oklahoma City: $60.99 billion. Rank: 46

St. Joseph, Mo.: $4.67 billion. Rank: 296

Springfield, Mo.: $15.38 billion. Rank: 133

Topeka: $9.50 billion. Rank: 187

Waco, Texas: $8.75 billion. Rank: 198

Wichita: $27.36 billion. Rank: 82 As Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve already mentioned, Lawrence did not do well in terms of its GDP growth in 2011. (There were signs of some positive economic activity in 2012 and they continue in 2013, so perhaps next yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s report will show a reversal in fortunes.) Oneyear growth rates always should be taken with a grain of salt, but hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a look at some in our region:

Lawrence: negative 1.7

percent. Rank: 338

Ames: 3.2 percent. Rank: 42

Austin: 4.4 percent. Rank: 20

Boulder: 3.6 percent. Rank: 31

Iowa City: 3.5 percent. Rank: 34

Joplin: 0.1 percent. Rank: 234

If you have about 450 acres of an abandoned fertilizer plant, now is apparently a good time to convert it into a business park. The city is in the process of awarding two key construction contracts to convert the former Farmland Industries fertilizer plant on the east edge of Lawrence into a business park. And both bids for the contract came back well below what the city was expecting. The city recently awarded a $4.98 million bid to Lawrence-based R.D. Johnson Excavating for street construction, waterline installation and lot grading at the site. The cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s engineers had estimated the work to come in at $8.16 million. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a difference of almost 40 percent. Last week, commissioners accepted the low bid from Amino Brothers â&#x20AC;&#x201D; $601,089 â&#x20AC;&#x201D; to install sewer lines for the site. The cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s engineers had estimated a cost of $1.41 million. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a difference of almost 60 percent. I guess that is why you take bids. City officials are hoping other construction firms are as hungry as these. The city soon will approve a set of bids for the $18 million library expansion project. Those bids have already come in, and my understanding is interest was extremely high by contractors.

On May 14, the city will be getting bids on an even larger project: the $25 million city recreation center. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll see how hungry recreation center builders are. But what we wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t see are any bids for the infrastructure work on that project. The city negotiated a deal with KU Endowment officials and Thomas Fritzelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Bliss Sports that calls for the recreation center building to be bid through the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s normal bid process. But the infrastructure work for the KU and city project â&#x20AC;&#x201D; things like streets, sewers, waterlines and parking lots â&#x20AC;&#x201D; wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be bid through the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s open bidding process. Instead, Fritzelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Bliss Sports will use its preferred contractors and will negotiate a price for that work. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m sure the city will make Fritzel aware of these bids, assuming the price hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t already been fully determined. (Some dirtmoving work is under way at the site. The city has an interest to pass these bids along because the city likely will be paying for a portion of that infrastructure work. The Rock Chalk Park deal calls for the city to pay for 100 percent of the cost to build the recreation center building. The city then will pay for infrastructure work up until a point that the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s total cost on the project reaches $25 million. So, if the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s recreation center bid comes in at $19.9 million, which is the current estimate by the city, then the city will pay $5.1 million for the infrastructure/parking work. (I previously had said $7 million, which shows why I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have a career in math.) That means the city would pay a little less than half of the infrastructure/parking costs that are estimated at $13.5 million. Some people have said that sounds about right, since the infrastructure will serve both the city-owned property and the property that will house the KU track, softball and soccer facilities.

Downtown Lawrence Inc. soon will be looking for a new leader. DLI Executive Director Cathy Hamilton has announced that sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s leaving the organization this summer to retire. Hamilton said she will stay on through Downtown Lawrenceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s big sidewalk sale, which is set for July 18, and she hopes to be able to provide about four weeksâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; worth of training to the next director. Hamilton Hamilton has been with the organization â&#x20AC;&#x201D; which provides marketing, event planning and other services to merchants and other downtown businesses â&#x20AC;&#x201D; for about 2.5 years. Before that, she was a longtime employee and television personality on Sunflower Broadband, back when it was owned by The World Company, the parent company of the Lawrence Journal-World. Hamilton said the large amounts of new residential development being built downtown â&#x20AC;&#x201D; particularly at the intersection of Ninth and New Hampshire â&#x20AC;&#x201D; is adding a new level of excitement to downtown merchants. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There seems to be a real optimism on the street, which is different than when I started,â&#x20AC;? Hamilton said.

Airline passenger Plant sale could use some hands complaints surge HOW TO HELP

By Shelly Hornbaker

Roger Hill Volunteer Center

Agency: Grassland Heritage Foundation Contact: Kim Bellemere, 785-840-8104; email: grasslandheritage@gmail. com. Grassland Heritage Foundation works to preserve and protect our native tallgrass prairie. GHF will sponsor a native plant sale on April 20 during the Lawrence Earth Day Celebration in South Park, 11th and Massachusetts streets. Volunteers are needed to work two-hour shifts in support of the sale. Tasks include setting up the exhibit, sales assistance, boxing up purchases and taking down the display. No training is required, but volunteers should be able to stand for two hours at a time and be able to make change for purchases. Knowledge of native plants is helpful but not a requirement. It is a busy and fun day. Volunteers will work with a great group of people.

Immediate needs Friends of Hidden Valley provide support for Hidden Valley Camp and are planning the largest planting event in the 57-year history

of Hidden Valley. Volunteers are needed the next several Saturdays to assist local Girl Scout troops to re-establish the vegetation in the natural barrier running along Bob Billings Parkway by planting 500 bare-root saplings. Volunteers are needed to dig the planting holes for the saplings. Girl Scouts will then plant the saplings in the pre-dug holes. Planting holes may be dug with shovels, post-hole diggers, boring tools or any other creative manner. Moving dirt, mulching and watering may also be needed. A limited number of shovels and pairs of gloves will be available but more will be needed. Please bring any digging/boring tools you have. Volunteers should wear durable, totally enclosed shoes and dress appropriately for the weather. The planting event will begin this Saturday and continue for two to three weeks.

Study finds death rates worse at rural hospitals LINCOLN, NEB. (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; A new study says the death rates in small rural hospitals are worse than at most hospitals. The Lincoln Journal Star reported that the study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association notes that the death rate in remote hospitals got worse between 2002 and 2010. The death rate at other hospitals improved over that same time period.

Nebraska, Iowa, Minnesota, Texas and Kansas are the states with the most critical-access hospitals. Iowa has 82 and Nebraska has 65. Medicare treats these small, isolated hospitals differently. It pays them more than it pays most hospitals and doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t impose the same requirements for efficiency. And the small critical-access hospitals donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to report how their patients fare.

The studyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lead author, Dr. Karen Joynt, said it might be harder for rural hospitals to afford the latest technology and specialists that are helping other hospitals. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This carved-out group of hospitals seems to be falling further and further behind,â&#x20AC;? said Joynt, whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s with the Harvard School of Public Health. The mortality rates for Medicare patients with heart attacks, heart failure

and pneumonia reached 13.3 percent in 2010 at the critical-access hospitals. The other hospitals recorded an 11.4 percent death rate that same year. The National Rural Health Associationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Brock Slabach said there is more to a hospital than mortality rates, so these small facilities shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be judged by that statistic alone. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Mortality is just one small part of the picture,â&#x20AC;? Slabach said.

WASHINGTON â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Airline passengers are getting grumpier, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s little wonder. Airlines keep shrinking the size of seats to stuff more people onto planes, those empty middle seats that once provided a little more room are now occupied and more people with tickets are being turned away because flights are overbooked. Private researchers who analyzed federal data on airline performance also said in a report being released Monday that consumer complaints to the Department of Transportation surged by one-fifth last year even though other measures such as on-time arrivals and mishandled baggage show airlines are doing a better job. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The way airlines have taken 130-seat airplanes and expanded them to 150 seats to squeeze out more revenue I think is finally catching up with them,â&#x20AC;? said Dean Headley, a business professor at Wichita State University who has co-written the annual report for 23 years. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People are saying, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Look, I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t fit here. Do something about this.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; At some point airlines canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t keep shrinking seats to put more people into the same tube,â&#x20AC;? he said. The industry is even looking at ways to make todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s smaller-than-abroom closet toilets more compact in the hope of squeezing a few more seats onto planes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t imagine the uproar that making toilets smaller might generate,â&#x20AC;? Headley said, especially given that passengers increasingly weigh more than they use to. Nevertheless, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Will it keep them from flying? I doubt it would.â&#x20AC;?

In recent years, some airlines have shifted to larger planes that can carry more people, but that hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been enough to make up for an overall reduction in flights. The rate at which passengers with tickets were denied seats because planes were full rose to 0.97 denials per 10,000 passengers last year, compared with 0.78 in 2011. It used to be in cases of overbookings that airlines usually could find a passenger who would volunteer to give up a seat in exchange for cash, a free ticket or some other compensation with the expectation of catching another flight later that day or the next morning. Not anymore. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Since flights are so full, there are no seats on those next flights. So people say, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;No, not for $500, not for $1,000,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? said airline industry analyst Robert W. Mann Jr. Regional carrier SkyWest had the highest involuntary denied boardings rate last year, 2.32 per 10,000 passengers. But not every airline overbooks flights in an effort to keep seats full. JetBlue and Virgin America were the industry leaders in avoiding denied boardings, with rates of 0.01 and 0.07, respectively. United Airlines had the highest consumer complaint rate of the 14 airlines included in the report, with 4.24 complaints per 100,000 passengers. That was nearly double the airlineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s complaint rate the previous year. Southwest had the lowest rate, at 0.25. The complaints are regarded as indicators of a larger problem because many passengers may not realize they can file complaints with Transportation Department, which regulates airlines.

U.S. general: Taliban likely to be long-term threat By Robert Burns AP National Security Writer

BAGRAM GHANISTAN

AIR FIELD, AF— The United States accepts that a diminished but resilient Taliban is likely to remain a military threat in some parts of Afghanistan long after U.S. troops complete their combat mission next year, the top U.S. military officer said Sunday. In an Associated Press interview at this air field north of Kabul, Army Gen. Martin Dempsey, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said he is cautiously optimistic that the Afghan army will hold its own against the insurgency as Western troops pull back and Afghans assume the lead combat role. He said that by May or June, the Afghans will be in the lead throughout the country. Asked whether some parts of the country will remain contested by the Taliban, he replied, “Yes, of course there will be.” “And if we were having this conversation 10 years from now, I suspect there would (still) be contested areas because the history of Afghanistan suggests that there will always be contested areas,” he said. He and other U.S. commanders have said that ultimately the Afghans must reach some sort of political accommodation with

FORMER TALIBAN MILITANTS stand in line, handcuffed after turning in their weapons during a ceremony with the Afghan government in Herat, Afghanistan, on Sunday. About six former Taliban militants from Herat province handed over their weapons as part of a peace-reconciliation program. the insurgents, and that a reconciliation process needs to be led by Afghans not Americans. Thus the No. 1 priority for the U.S. military in its final months of combat in Afghanistan is to do all that is possible to boost the strength and confidence of Afghan forces. Shortly after Dempsey

arrived in Afghanistan on Saturday, the Taliban demonstrated its ability to strike. It claimed responsibility for a suicide car bombing that killed five Americans — three soldiers and two civilians, including Anne Smedinghoff, a foreign service officer and the first American diplo-

mat killed overseas since the terrorist attack Sept. 11 in Benghazi, Libya. A fierce battle between U.S.-backed Afghan forces and Taliban militants in a remote corner of eastern Afghanistan left nearly 20 people dead, including 11 Afghan children killed in an airstrike, Afghan officials said Sunday.

There are now about 66,000 U.S. troops in Afghanistan. That number is to drop to about 32,000 by February 2014, and the combat mission is to end in December 2014. Whether some number — perhaps 9,000 or 10,000 — remain into 2015 as military trainers and counterinsurgents is yet to be decided.

Dempsey spent two days talking to senior Afghan officials, including his counterpart, Gen. Sher Mohammad Karimi, as well as top U.S. and allied commanders. He also visited a U.S. base in the volatile eastern province of Paktika for an update on how U.S. troops are balancing the twin missions of advising Afghan forces and withdrawing tons of U.S. equipment as the war effort winds down. Paktika is an example of a sector of Afghanistan that is likely to face Taliban resistance for years to come. Bordering areas of Pakistan that provide haven for the Taliban and its affiliated Haqqani network, Paktika has been among the more important insurgent avenues into the Afghan interior. While the province has a functioning government, Taliban influence remains significant in less populated areas, as it has since U.S. forces first invaded the country more than 11 years ago. “There will be contested areas, and it will be the Afghans’ choice whether to allow those contested areas to persist, or, when necessary, take action to exert themselves into those contested area,” he said.

Kerry struggles to get Turkey to mend Israeli ties By Bradley Klapper Associated Press

ISTANBUL — U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry struggled Sunday to convince Turkey’s leaders they should promptly restore full diplomatic ties with Israel, two American allies counted on by President Barack Obama to help calm the turbulent Middle East. But Turkey demanded that Israel first end all commercial restrictions against the Palestinians before the once-close partners could end their estrangement, which stems from an Israeli raid in 2010 on a flotilla bound for the Gaza Strip. Eight Turks and a TurkishAmerican died. Obama revived the rapprochement during a visit to Israel last month, and Kerry aimed to firm that up in Istanbul, the first stop in a 10-day trip. The stakes are high, given that the U.S. sees Turkey and Israel as anchors of stability in a region riven by

Syria’s civil war, Arab Spring political upheavals and the potential threat posed by Iran’s nu- Kerry clear program. “We would like to see this relationship that is important to stability in the Middle East and critical to the peace process ... get back on track in its full measure,” Kerry told reporters at a news conference with Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu. Kerry said that meant promises of “compensation be fulfilled, ambassadors be returned and that full relationship be embraced.” He also met with Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan and then went to Israel. Obama, before leaving Israel two weeks ago, arranged a telephone conversation between Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin

Netanyahu and Erdogan. Netanyahu apologized for the flotilla incident; compensation talks are expected to begin this week. But Davutoglu suggested that full normalization of ties would probably take some time. “There is an offense that has been committed, and there needs to be accountability,” Davutoglu said. He signaled that Turkey would pursue a “careful” advance toward a complete restoration of relations, with compensation and an end to Israeli trade restrictions on the Gaza Strip as the stumbling blocks. “All of the embargoes should be eliminated once and for all,” he said through an interpreter. Fixing the relationship long has been a goal of the Obama administration, and the U.S. desperately wants significant progress by the time Erdogan visits the White House in mid-May. The Turks have reveled somewhat in what they view as a diplomatic vic-

tory, with billboards in Ankara celebrating Netanyahu’s apology and praising Erdogan for bringing pride to his country. Perhaps seeking to add to his leverage, Erdogan indicated shortly after the call that he was in no hurry to finalize the deal and pledged to visit the Hamascontrolled Palestinian territory soon. From a U.S. strategic sense, cooperation between the American allies has only become more important as Syria’s 2-year conflict has grown ever deadlier. More than 70,000 people have died in the war, according to the United Nations, but the U.S. fears it could get even worse, by spilling into neighboring countries or through the use of chemical weapons. Both potential scenarios have led to intense contingency planning among Washington and its regional partners, including Israel and Turkey.

Luke Bryan, Miranda Lambert win big at ACMs By Chris Talbott AP Music Writer

LAS VEGAS — Everything went to script Sunday night at the Academy of Country Music Awards until the end when Luke Bryan pulled off an amazing upset and won entertainer of the year. Bryan immediately overshadowed top winner Miranda Lambert’s big night by beating out some of country music’s top performers, including Lambert and her husband Blake Shelton, Jason Aldean and two-time entertainer of the year Taylor Swift in an upset that few would have predicted because of his relatively recent move into the spotlight. The 36-year-old Georgia native recently began headlining his first arena tour and was the co-host of this year’s show. “I don’t know what to say guys,” Bryan said as members the audience shouted “Luke.” ‘‘Thank you so much fans for doing this to me. Thank you so much for making my life what it is. What I always wanted to be was just a country singer who got to ride on a tour bus and show up on a new stage and play music every night.” After an emotional

speech, Bryan’s co-host Blake Shelton held his partner up and joked that he won in his “first and last year as co-host” of the awards. Bryan is the first male winner of the award since 2007 when Kenny Chesney won the first fanvoted award. Swift and Carrie Underwood have won two apiece since then. Bryan’s win was the talk of Las Vegas Sunday night but Lambert again walks away as the academy’s trophy magnet. She won her fourth straight female vocalist award and picked up three trophies for her hit song “Over You” — one for single record of the year and two for song of the year. She was performer of the song and co-wrote the song with Shelton. “Over You,” written about Shelton’s late brother, won song of the year at the Country Music Association Awards last November as well. “As a songwriter, having your song and your lyrics recognized by your peers is pretty much as good as it gets,” Lambert said. “And I’m so thankful for being in this genre of country music, every single time someone’s nominated, I just cheer, because I love everybody to death. So thank you for accepting me as a song

Church, this year’s top nominee, also won vocal event of the year for his collaboration with Aldean and Luke Bryan for their collaboration on “The Only Way I Know” and performed his somber but powerful song “Like Jesus

Does” with only an acoustic guitar and a backup singer. Aldean, country’s topselling male act, won male vocalist of the year. Little Big Town had wins for vocal group and video of the year. Florida Georgia Line won for new artist and were previous winners in the new vocal duo/group category. And husband and wife Shawna and Keifer Thompson continued their feel-good story as Thompson Square won its second straight vocal duo of the year award.

A top South Korean national security official said Sunday that North Korea might be setting the stage for a missile test or another provocative act with its warning that it soon will be unable to guarantee diplomats’ safety in Pyongyang. But he added that the North’s clearest objective is to extract concessions from Washington and Seoul.

Pentagon preparing for North Korean actions By Robert Burns AP National Security Writer

BAGRAM, AFGHANISTAN — The top U.S. military officer said Sunday the Pentagon had bolstered its missile defenses and taken other steps because it “can’t take the chance” that North Korea won’t soon engage in some military action. Heightened tensions with North Korea led the United States to postpone congressional testimony by the chief U.S. commander in South Korea and delay an intercontinental ballistic missile test from a West Coast base. North Korea, after weeks of war threats and other efforts to punish South Korea and the U.S. for joint military drills, has told other nations that it will be unable to guarantee diplomats’ safety in the North’s capital beginning Wednesday. U.S. Gen Martin Dempsey, the Joint Chiefs of Staff chairman who just wrapped up a visit to Afghanistan, was asked in an Associated Press interview whether he foresees North Korea taking military action soon. “No, but I can’t take the chance that it won’t,” he said, explaining why the Pentagon has strengthened missile defenses and made other decisions to combat the potential threat. Dempsey said the U.S. has been preparing for further provocations or action, “considering the risk

that they may choose to do something” on one of two nationally important anniversaries in April — the birth of North Korean founder Kim Il Sung and the creation of the North Korean army. U.S. Gen. James Thurman, the commander of the 28,000 American troops in South Korea, will stay in Seoul as “a prudent measure” rather than travel to Washington to appear this coming week before congressional committees, Army Col. Amy Hannah said in an email Sunday to the AP. Thurman has asked the Senate Armed Services Committee, the House Armed Services Committee, and the House Appropriations subcommittee on defense to excuse his absence until he can testify at a later date. Dempsey said he had consulted with Thurman about the rising tensions on the Korean peninsula. Dempsey said both Thurman and South Korea’s Joint Chiefs of Staff chairman, Gen. Jung Seung-jo, decided it would be best for them to remain in Seoul rather than come to Washington. The Korean general had planned to meet with Dempsey, the U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff chairman, in mid-April for regular talks. Dempsey said that instead of meeting in person with Thurman and Jung in Washington, they will consult together by videoteleconference.

War-weary nation wary of Syria

EDITORIALS

Risky business City officials should take a look at ways to help protect local police officers against violent attacks.

T

hree times last week, Lawrence police officers have been injured while making arrests. First, we should thank these officers for their service. The recent statistic should focus attention on the abuse that members of our police force take and the dangers they face. Then we should get busy to see what can be done to reduce the violence directed at them. We can’t know whether these three incidents represent a trend. We can speculate that they could be connected to the increased presence of methamphetamine abuse in our community, as described in Journal-World news stories. Violence often accompanies this particular form of drug usage, so there may be a link. The most recent incident happened Tuesday as police responded to a burglar alarm. It should be noted that one charge lodged against the assailant was possession of a controlled substance. Although follow-up treatment was required, the officer’s injuries did not appear to be serious, but in other cases, such violence has resulted in injuries that forced officers into retirement. Battling with police officers cannot be tolerated. These men and women deserve the community’s respect and support. Their assailants, if convicted, should get the strongest sentences that judicial guidelines allow. And Lawrence needs to give more attention to dealing with the range of effects that increased drug use is having on the community. Ignoring it or looking the other way is not the answer. Law enforcement needs our backing. The newly elected Lawrence City Commission should make it a priority.

From the Lawrence Daily Journal-World for April 8, 1913: “The Baldwin City Election held today was not the quiet afYEARS fair that everyone had expected. AGO There was only one ticket in IN 1913 the field that the general public was aware of until this morning, when the women of the city appeared with a ticket headed by Mrs. Jennie McMillan for Mayor and Mrs. Allerdice and Mrs. Kuhn for council-women. … The men who had predicted a quiet election were forced to get extremely busy and only succeeded in electing their candidate by 44 votes. The election returns show one woman to have been elected on the ticket, Mrs. Allerdice as council-woman.”

ISTANBUL — Talking with members of Congress at a gathering here last week was an education in the public’s wariness of new foreign entanglements — especially in Syria. It was a reminder that the post-Iraq era is only beginning, and that it may limit America’s ability to exercise power for the next few years. The great advantage (and on occasion, disadvantage) of the House of Representatives is that its members are so close to their constituents. Most of them spend

every nearly weekend back home in their districts. So they know what the public is thinking in a personal way that’s sometimes missing in Washington foreign-policy debates. The discussion here arose during an off-the-record conference organized by a Washington group. One of the topics was possible U.S. involvement in Syria, and it provoked an intense conversation. Many members from both parties made clear how uneasy they are about new U.S. adventures in this part of the world, no matter how noble-sounding the cause. “I can’t adequately describe how unwilling the American people are to get involved in another war in

the Middle East,” said one congressman. “We’re almost unable to respond,” given what the U.S. has spent in Iraq and Afghanistan, said another. He described intervention proposals as “halfbaked,” and argued that “the last thing we need is something ineffective.” A third member summed up the public mood this way: “We are not just war-weary, we are war-wary.” The skeptical mood was underlined by one member who quoted former German Chancellor Helmut Schmidt as saying: “The problem is that you Americans think every problem has a solution.” Well, not anymore — not after Iraq and Afghanistan. Both Republicans and Democrats expressed caution about venturing onto Syria’s slippery slope. “This is not a tragedy of our making,” warned one House veteran. He argued that countries in the region need to decide what they want. “Absent that consensus, you can’t act.” This longtime member noted that President Obama won’t be able to do much in Syria without support from Democrats: “You can’t be a war president without having a war party.” Obama recognizes the national war fatigue and made it a subtle centerpiece of his bid for re-election. He was emphatic about bringing troops home from Af-

ghanistan and doing nationbuilding at home, rather than abroad. Mitt Romney, the Republican nominee, opened the general-election campaign with hawkish rhetoric, but by the last debate he had so trimmed his foreign-policy positions that they were nearly identical to Obama’s. In his caution on Syria, Obama has been reading the public mood correctly. Personally, I hope the president will accept the recommendation of some of his advisers and provide training and other limited military assistance for the Syrian rebels. But he would do so without a solid base of public support, a bad way to begin any new commitment. If Obama does decide to get more involved, he will need to bring the country along with him. The big question is whether America’s war weariness will undermine Obama’s pledge to use military force, if necessary, to prevent Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon. The Iranians seem convinced that, given the public mood, Obama is bluffing. President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad told me pointedly in an interview last September that America was tired of the “back-breaking expenses” of foreign wars. “Will the people of the U.S. accept meddling and intervention

in the affairs of others?” he mused. “I don’t believe so.” The House members who attended the conference seemed less skeptical about military options for Iran than for Syria. That’s partly because the Iranian threat is more obvious toward both the U.S. and Israel. But given the current public mood, Obama will have to work carefully to build support for any U.S. military action against Iran — convincing people that it’s a legal and necessary use of American power. Visiting this sprawling city was a reminder of the mysterious process through which empires wax and wane. Turkey’s neo-imperial prospects seem to be rising for the first time in a century, with Turkish leaders talking about a new Ottoman hegemony in the region. America’s cloak of leadership, by contrast, seems a bit faded. One Arab politician cautioned the group: “American credibility is being doubted in this part of the world.” What the members of Congress needed to remember, he said, was that “America remains indispensable.” But when the members are back home talking to constituents on weekends, this traditional invocation of global U.S. leadership is not what they’re hearing. — David Ignatius is a columnist for Washington Post Writers Group.

Free expression bypasses abortion issue WASHINGTON — We know Johns Hopkins University is devoted to diversity, because it says so. Its “Diversity and Inclusion Statement,” a classic of the genre, says the university is “committed to sharing values of diversity and inclusion ... by recruiting and retaining a diverse group of students.” Hopkins has an Office of Institutional Equity and a “Diversity Leadership Council” that defines “inclusion” as “active, thoughtful and ongoing engagement with each other.” Unless you are a member of Voice for Life, an anti-abortion group. Hopkins’ Student Government Association has denied VFL status as a recognized student group, for two reasons: VFL’s website links to other organizations that display graphic images of aborted babies. And VFL plans to engage in peaceful, quiet “sidewalk counseling” outside a local abortion clinic, which the SGA considers “harassment.” Hopkins’ student conduct code enjoins students “to protect the university as a forum for the free expression of ideas.” And although Hopkins has a stern policy against sexual harassment, it says the purpose of this policy is not “to inhibit free speech or the free communication of ideas by members of the academic community.” Presumably that also applies to other forms of “harassment.” Suppose such SGA-recognized student groups as the Arab Students Organi-

Hopkins’ student conduct code enjoins students ‘to protect the university as a forum for the free expression of ideas.’” zation, the Black Student Union, the Hopkins Feminists or the Diverse Sexuality and Gender Alliance were to link their websites to provocative outside organizations, or were to counsel persons not to patronize firms with policies those groups oppose. Would the SGA want to deny them recognition as student groups? Of course not. Obviously, the SGA has acted to express animus against the content of VFL’s speech, and to protect students from the discomfort of disagreement. Persons who do not want to see the images to which VFL links need never see them. Nevertheless, an SGA member says pro-life demonstrations make her feel “personally violated, targeted and attacked at a place where we previously felt safe and free to live our

lives.” If encountering ideas she does not share makes her feel this way, she is unsuited to a proper academic setting. She may, however, be suited to Hopkins, which should be embarrassed, if it still can be. Hopkins’ institutional intolerance would be boring were it simply redundant evidence of academia’s commitment to diversity in everything but thought. It is, however, indicative of the increasingly extreme ambitions and tactics of those operating under the anodyne rubric of “choice.” In Florida recently, a legislative debate that reverberated in the U.S. Senate in the 1990s was revived concerning the right to choose infanticide. In 1996, the Senate debated outlawing partial-birth abortion, whereby a baby is delivered feet first until only the top of the skull remains in the birth canal, then the skull is punctured and its contents emptied. Sen. Rick Santorum, R-Pa., asked two pro-choice senators, Russ Feingold, D-Wis., and Frank Lautenberg, DN.J., this: If the baby slips entirely out of the birth canal before it can be killed, should killing it still be a permissible choice? Neither senator would say no. In a 1999 debate, Santorum asked Barbara Boxer, D-Calif., whether she agreed that “once the child is born, is separated from the mother, that that child is protected by the Constitution and

cannot be killed.” Boxer said: “I think that when you bring your baby home ... ” Sort of like driving a new car away from the dealership. But, then, what principle forbids killing a baby at home if its crying interrupts the parents’ enjoyment of Jay Leno’s monologue? Recently in Florida, Alisa LaPolt Snow, representing Florida Planned Parenthood organizations, testified against a bill that would require abortionists to provide medical care to babies who survive attempted abortions. Snow was asked: “If a baby is born on a table as a result of a botched abortion, what would Planned Parenthood want to have happen to that child that is struggling for life?” Snow replied: “We believe that any decision that’s made should be left up to the woman, her family and the physician.” She added, “That decision should be between the patient and the health care provider.” To this, a Florida legislator responded: “I think that at that point the patient would be the child struggling on a table, wouldn’t you agree?” Planned Parenthood, which receives more than $500 million in government subsidies, is branching out, expanding its mission beyond the provision of abortions to the defense of consumers’ rights: If you pay for an abortion, you are owed a dead baby. — George Will is a columnist for Washington Post Writers Group.

Title teams have attitude of gratitude By Chris Dufresne Los Angeles Times

Tom Keegan tkeegan@ljworld.com

KU TE Mundine primed Kansas University’s football team unwittingly was responsible for among the most stunning statistics in the nation in 2012, and it was no less shocking for the guys in the huddle. Zero touchdown passes were thrown to wide receivers in 12 games. “That’s crazy,” tight end Jimmay Mundine said. “That’s a shocking fact. I mean, I’m trying to get 10 myself this year.” Lofty goal for a tight end who plays on a team that had just seven touchdown passes last season, three to tight ends and four to running backs. Mundine and running back Tony Pierson shared the team lead with two touchdown receptions. Mundine does have a great deal going for him in pursuing the goal of 10 TD receptions in his junior season. He’s fast for a 6-foot-2, 242-pound block of muscle. He runs good routes, has sure hands and a sharp mind. Plus, he said even before spring practice started he already had developed strong chemistry with quarterback Jake Heaps. Mundine said they met every Wednesday for an hour during the offseason to discuss subtleties of the playbook and to watch film together. Developing such chemistry is vital, Mundine said, because both players must read the defense in the same way in order to remain a step ahead. “He’s expecting me to be in a certain spot based on what the defense is doing, and I’m expecting the ball to be there when I turn around,” Mundine said. Asked to give an example, Mundine used a 10-yard in-cut with him starting on the right side of the line. He talked about the defenders in football parlance, using Mike for middle linebacker, Sam for strong-side (the side the tight end lines up on) linebacker and Will for weak-side linebacker. “The Mike is in the middle of the field. He’s going to be right inside of me, and the Sam is going to be right outside of me,” Mundine said. “So I push to the Sam and widen my reach a little bit, so if that Mike comes with me, the second gap (between the Mike and the Will) is wider now, I go across, but if he stays in the middle as I’m going out, then I almost run like a curl route, and he’s going to put it in there between the Mike and the Sam. So if the Mike attacks me, then I’m going to go behind him and across, but if he just sits there, I’m going to turn and sit, and he’ll hit me right there.”

ATLANTA — Michigan will have three or four thank-you notes to hand out should it win tonight’s national championship game against Louisville at the Georgia Dome. It can start with Penn State, which beat the Wolverines by 14 points in State College on Feb. 27. Penn State, before that night, was 0-14 in Big Ten play. That had to be a defibrillator-like shock to the system. Michigan can thank the NCAA for tournament ex-

Michigan (31-7) is playing Louisville (34-5) for the title because Kansas left the barn door wide open. This is no knock on how Michigan got here — it’s the beauty of the tournament. Louisville qualified the old-fashioned way by winning the Big East regularseason and postseason titles. Rick Pitino’s Cardinals were seeded No. 1 overall and are riding a 15-game winning streak into the final game.

KANSAS’ JUSTIN PROTACIO IS GREETED BY TEAMMATES AFTER SCORING A RUN during KU’s 3-2 victory over Oklahoma State on Sunday at Hoglund Ballpark.

Piché closes door on OSU By Matt Tait mtait@ljworld.com

For most baseball teams, a one-run lead in the late innings can be a nerve-wracking and pressure-packed experience. Luckily for Kansas University’s baseball team, closer Jordan Piché prefers those moments. “I like the one-run-lead games,” said Piché, who threw three scoreless innings to close out KU’s 3-2 victory against No. 19 Oklahoma State on Sunday at Hoglund Ballpark. “More pressure on you. I don’t know, just something about it I like. It’s just fun to compete in that.” Piché picked up his sixth save of the season by scattering three hits over three innings and facing just 11 Oklahoma State hitters. He was never in trouble, cruised from the seventh inning on and nev-

er gave the Cowboys so much as a glimmer of hope. “The first inning was a quick one, and I kind of fed off that,” Piché said. “In the ninth, I just told myself, ‘It stops here.’ That ninth inning is a crucial one to get ahead in the count and get the leadoff.” Piché did just that with all four batters he faced in the ninth and actually had to Piché work overtime after OSU’s Gage Green reached on an infield single with two outs. Many in KU’s dugout thought the throw from shortstop Kevin Kuntz was in time to end the game, but the umpire called Green safe. Piché was unfazed. “It pumped me up a little more,” the junior closer said.

“Next batter, we got him, so no big deal.” After winning the opener Friday, 7-5, and falling, 14-3, in Game 2 of the series Saturday, the Jayhawks found themselves trailing quickly when Oklahoma State plated a run in the top of the first. Rather than seeing that as a continuation of Saturday’s OSU dominance, the Jayhawks bounced back with two runs in the bottom of the first and controlled things the rest of the way. KU capitalized on two Oklahoma State errors in the first inning and also used three well placed bunts to pick up their two runs. For a team that lacks pop, KU coach Ritch Price said playing small ball was vital to KU’s success. “We have to with our lineup,” Price said. “That’s what I was most proud of, how we bounced back.” Please see BASEBALL, page 3B

Kansas University senior center Jeff Withey on Sunday was named National Association of Basketball Coaches Co-Defensive Player of the Year at the 2013 AT&T/NABC Guardians of the Game Awards Show in Atlanta. Withey, a 7-footer from San Diego, shared the honor with Indiana junior guard Victor Oladipo. Withey averaged 13.7 points and a team-leading Withey 8.5 rebounds a game for the Jayhawks (316). He broke his own KU and Big 12 single-season blocked shots record by swatting 146 shots. In 2011-12, he blocked 140 shots to set the school and league mark. The 2012 and 2013 Big 12 Defensive Player of the Year, Withey is also the KU and Big 12 career blocked-shots leader. He finished his career with 312 all-time blocks. A three-time Big 12 Player of the Week, Withey led the Big 12 with 3.95 blocked shots per game, which ranked second nationally, and set the KU and conference per-gameaverage season record. Last week Withey was named Consensus All-America Second Team along with KU red-shirt freshman guard Ben McLemore.

Certain first-rounder: Draftexpress.com believes Withey will be taken No. 21 in the first round of the NBA Draft. “It’s not a stretch to say that Withey was the biggest defensive difference maker in college basketball this season. He blocked 4.9 shots per-40 minutes, down from 5.7 last year, but is far more than just a shot-blocker,” Draft Express’ Jonathan Givony writes.

COMING TUESDAY s#OVERAGEOFTHE.#!!MENSBASKETBALLCHAMPIONSHIP s2EPORTFROM,AWRENCE(IGHGIRLSSOCCER

The FBI is investigating whether a former Rutgers basketball employee tried to extort the university before he made videos that showed ex-coach Mike Rice shoving and kicking players and berating them with gay slurs. Meanwhile, Robert Morris University is expected to report in coming days what it has learned in its own inquiry on the three years Rice spent as head coach there. A person familiar with the FBIâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s probe told the Associated Press on Sunday that investigators are interested in Eric Murdock, who left his job as the menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s basketball programâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s player development director last year and later provided the video to university officials and ESPN. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the inquiry has not been announced. The investigation was first reported last week by ESPN and The New York Times. A spokeswoman for the FBIâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Newark office said the agency would not say whether there

Rice

Murdock

is an investigation. Murdockâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lawyer did not return a call to the AP on Sunday. A Rutgers spokesman referred questions to the FBI. A December letter from Murdockâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lawyer to a lawyer representing Rutgers requested $950,000 to settle employment issues and said that if the university did not agree by Jan. 4, Murdock was prepared to file a lawsuit. The letter was obtained last week by the AP and other media outlets. No settlement has been made. The video became public last week, and Murdock on Friday filed a lawsuit against the university, contending he was fired because he was a whistleblower trying to bring to light Riceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s behavior. The videoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s release last week

Storylines plentiful this week at Masters

set off a chain reaction that led to Riceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s firing and the resignations of athletic director Tim Pernetti, the universityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s top inhouse lawyer and an assistant basketball coach. Some critics want the universityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s president, Robert Barchi, to resign. Barchi will hold a town hall meeting today at the schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Newark campus, where he is expected to face some students and faculty who say they lost confidence in him even before the controversy over Riceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s firing. They have said his plan to reorganize the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s higher education system shortchanges the Rutgers campuses in Camden and Newark. At a news conference last week, Barchi said the firing and resignations likely never would have happened unless Murdock provided the video to ESPN. Barchi said he did not see the video himself until after it had been made public. Murdock, a New Jersey native who played for seven NBA teams from 1991 to 2000, was on the initial staff Rice assembled when he became the Rutgers coach in 2010. He left the team last year, though there are con-

flicting stories about the circumstances. Murdock has said Rice fired him after he skipped a session of Riceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s summer basketball camp, but has said he was targeted because he had spoken with others about Riceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s conduct at practice. The university found in a report that Murdock was not actually fired and that he could have continued working at the school. After Murdock left, he spoke with university officials about his allegations against Rice. He also used an open public records request to obtain hundreds of hours of videos of basketball practice. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not clear who shot the original footage, but it was edited into the half-hour video later given to the university that touched off a scandal last week. The university report on Rice, which was completed in December but not made public until Friday, criticized the video provided by Murdock as taken many situations out of context. While the report found fault with Riceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s behavior in several instances, it also said he did not create a hostile work environment, as Murdock had suggested.

Who are other players who might break through? Steve Stricker, who is playing a scaled-back schedule, is one. Oosthuizen, who lost in that playoff last year to Watson, seems ready. Charl Schwartzel has a game built for Augusta, and has won before (2011). And there will always be those others on the list of best players who have yet to win a major, probably headed by Justin Rose and Luke Donald. What about Augusta Nationalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first female members? If Condoleezza Rice and Darla Moore are at the Masters, and theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re sure to be, they wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have a high profile.

MARTIN LAIRD, OF SCOTLAND, SLIDES INTO A PAIR OF BOOTS he received for winning the Texas Open golf tournament, Sunday in San Antonio.

Lairdâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 63 boots McIlroy from Texas Open title SAN ANTONIO â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Martin Laird tied the course record with a 9-under par 63 to hold off Rory McIlroy to earn his first win in more than two years at the Texas Open. Laird began Sunday four shots behind leader Billy Horschel, but posted a bogey-free round to finish 14 under overall and earn the third win of his career, his first since the Arnold Palmer Invitational in 2011. The Scottish golfer entered the week having missed four of eight cuts this year. McIlroy, the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s No. 2, began the day at 6 under before posting a 66 to finish two shots back and finish second â&#x20AC;&#x201D; his best finish of the year. Horschel shot a 1-under 71 to finish in a tie for third with Jim Furyk and Charley Hoffman.

The five-time champion picked the inside line for the restart with Clint Bowyer on the outside, teammate Jeff Gordon behind him and Kyle Busch to his outside, and Johnson got a clean break into Turn 1. Bowyer was second and Busch, who tried to use the outside line, instead got hung up on the outside as Gordon and his Hendrick Motorsports teammate, Kasey Kahne, who restarted fifth, went underneath to take fourth.

“Withey possess catlike instincts on this end of the floor, showing unbelievable instincts as both a man to man and help-side defender. He does an amazing job of going straight up into the air and absorbing contact while avoiding committing a foul, aided greatly by his long reach, quick jump and tremendous timing. He almost always is able to keep his blocks in-bounds, which is infinitely more valuable than having a shot-blocker who simply sends opponent’s shots into the second row. This is perhaps where his volleyball background shows up the most. “Withey is also already 23 years old, so there may be an element of ‘what you see is what you get’ in terms of his upside,” Givony adds. “Athletic 7-footers with great defensive instincts and excellent finishing ability don’t grow on trees, though, so there will surely be a market for his services.” Draft Express has KU freshman Ben McLemore being taken No. 2 overall behind Kentucky’s Nerlens Noel. McLemore has yet to make it official that he’s entering the draft.

Kessler throws no-no for KU J-W Staff Reports

LUBBOCK, TEXAS — With a save and a completegame, four-hit shutout in her first two appearances against Texas Tech, Kansas University softball pitcher Kelsey Kessler didn’t leave herself much room for improvement in Game Three. Somehow Sunday, she managed it. Kessler, a freshman from Blue Springs, Mo., threw a complete-game no-hitter as the Jayhawks beat Tech, 4-0, to claim

their first conference road sweep since they swept a two-game set at Tech in 2007. It was Kessler’s first no-no and first by a Kansas pitcher since K a s s i e Kessler H u m phrey’s gem against New Mexico on March 11, 2007. “I don’t know if I feel anything right now,” Kessler said with a laugh. “I

feel like I’m going to wake up in 30 minutes. But no, it was incredible. A nohitter is as much as a team accomplishment as it was mine.” Kessler (7-3) struck out eight and walked just one. For the weekend, Kessler went 2-0 with a save and threw 15.2 shutout innings, with 13 strikeouts and just five hits allowed — a .096 opposing batting average. The walk and a fielder’s choice on consecutive atbats in the fourth prevented a perfect game.

“A no-hitter is always special, but if you count all the things about this one, it’s almost hard to believe,” KU coach Megan Smith said. “Away at Texas Tech, against one of the best offenses in our conference and from a freshman. How impressive is that? We’re really proud of Kelsey. She threw really well all weekend.” Chanin Naudin provided all the offense KU would need with a home run in the third, her third homer in three games at Tech.

And senior left fielder Maggie Hull extended her hitting streak to 20 games — best in the Big 12 this season and longest by a KU player in the Big 12 era. Kansas (24-10, 3-3) will travel to Greensville, S.C., for a nonconference series at Furman University on Saturday and Sunday. Tech fell to 27-17, 1-5. Kansas 001 000 3 — 4 7 0 Texas Tech 000 000 0 — 0 0 3 W — Kelsey Kessler, 7-3. L — Cara Custer, 12-8. HR — Chanin Naudin, KU.

Butler’s slam, 7 RBIs spark Royals PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Billy Butler was excited his hit drove in three runs and he was standing on second base. It got a whole lot better for Butler when the umpires returned from the video-review room. Butler’s hit was ruled a grand slam after the replays were checked, and Butler tied a Royals franchise record with seven RBIs as Kansas City held on for a 9-8 victory over the Philadelphia Phillies on Sunday. “I didn’t know if it was a homer or not,” Butler said. “I was just happy to get the runs in.” Butler’s fifth-inning homer, the first slam of his career and the first ever allowed by Philadelphia left-hander Cole Hamels, put Kansas City ahead 6-4. Butler had been 2-for-15 with one RBI in the Royals’ first five games entering Sunday. “It was just a matter of time with Billy Butler,” Royals manager Ned Yost said. “You knew he’d break out and do some damage.”

Butler’s production helped James Shields (1-1), acquired in an offseason trade with Tampa Bay, earn his first victory as a Royal. The right-hander gave up hits to five of the first six batters in a four-

said. “When you get something going with bunts, it’s a lot of fun.” Sophomore lefty Wes Benjamin (3-3) picked up the win. Benjamin went six innings and gave up just four hits and two runs while striking out three and walking five. Like his teammates at the plate, Benjamin made timely pitches from the mound. “When you have as poor a performance as we had (Saturday) in every phase

of the game, (the next game) starts with your starting pitcher,” Price said. “Despite the five walks, I thought he grinded it away, and, obviously, the double plays were huge. Our middle infield played fabulous today.” KU’s series victory over Oklahoma State (22-8 overall, 4-4 Big 12) marked the first time since taking two of three from Baylor in 2011 that the Jayhawks (18-12, 5-4) had won a se-

ries against a ranked opponent. The Jayhawks will play at Iowa on Tuesday and Wednesday before returning home for a weekend series with Texas. Price said he felt great about what his club had done so far in Big 12 play, starting with winning its conference-opening series at TCU in mid-March. “For us to go on the road and win that series started it for us,” Price said. “We

salvaged the Oklahoma series (last weekend) by winning the last day, and then we came home and defended against another top-20 team today. So I feel really good that we’re over .500 after three weeks.”

this, but if it’s closed, you’ve got this,” Mundine said. “And so you kind of have a lot of option routes. If the defense is doing this, I get to sit down here, and if the defense is doing that, then I have to keep going. It all intertwines because if the middle of the field is closed, and I keep going on my route, even though I’m not getting the ball, that safety went with me, and that’s the area we’re trying to get cleared out for the guy who’s coming into that area. Obviously, if the middle of the field is open, I’m going to take it, and I’m probably going to get the ball.” At the outset of spring,

Kansas coach Charlie Weis praised Mundine’s hard work in the offseason. Tight-ends coach Jeff Blasko said Mundine became much stronger during the winter workouts, which should help him to become more equipped to block defensive ends, an area that still needs improvement. “He’s by far in the best shape he’s been in since I’ve been here,” Blasko said. “We’re excited about his development. Very good hands, and he’s pretty sharp. You can put him in a bunch of different spots, and he’s mentally capable of doing it.” A native of Denison, Texas, who spent the

2010 season as a red-shirt, Mundine averaged 13.1 yards on his 14 receptions last season. He was recruited by Mark Mangino, then by Turner Gill after Mangino’s forced resignation. Mundine said after his mother met Gill, she told him he was going to Kansas. The biggest difference between the coaching styles of Gill and Weis? “Maybe the intensity,” Mundine said. “Now there is more a sense of urgency of get things done now, not waiting.” As a red-shirt freshman in 2011, Mundine followed the lead of quarterback Jordan Webb. Dayne Crist

and Michael Cummings were the starting quarterbacks last season. Mundine talked more about intangibles than specific skills when sharing why he’s looking forward to following the lead of Heaps. “I think Jake’s biggest thing is consistency and confidence,” Mundine said. “He knows what he’s supposed to be doing, and he knows he can do it, so that takes a lot of pressure off of him. He knows, ‘I can get this done.’ He believes in himself.” Having a tight end primed for a breakout season never hurts a quarterback’s confidence, either.

We’ll score some runs and we did a great job today.” Yost liked the way his ace fought back. “Shields really competed,” Yost said. “He gave us a chance and did a great job.” Butler came through with the bases loaded again in the sixth, hitting a two-run single off Chad Durbin. With the hit, Butler became the 12th Royals player to have seven RBIs.

Vault title highlight for KU J-W Staff Reports

TEMPE, ARIZ. — Kansas University junior pole vaulter Natalia Bartnovskaya set the school vault record for the second consecutive week during the KU track-and-field team’s appearance at the Sun Angel Classic on Saturday. KU had five NCAA top10 performances on the day. Bartnovskaya, the 2013 indoor NCAA pole vault champion, cleared 4.41 meters (14 feet, 51⁄2 inches), bettering her six-dayold school record of 4.31

meters (14-13⁄4) set at the Texas Relays. It’s the third-best mark in the NCAA this season. KU’s Heather Bergmann was the top collegiate finisher and third-place finisher overall in the javelin with a toss of 52.23 meters (171-4), and she’s fourth in the NCAA rankings. Kansas’ 4X400-meter relay team — All-Americans Denesha Morris, Diamond Dixon, Taylor Washington and Paris Daniels — won in 3:32.26, the eighth-fastest time in the NCAA. The men’s 4X400 relay

team of Kyle Clemons, Michael Hester, Michael Stigler and Kenneth McCuin held off a pesky Arizona State squad to earn their first win of the outdoor campaign, in 3:05.95. That ranks eighth nationally. KU junior Josh Munsch placed fourth in the 1,500 in a personal-best 3:43.03, the fifth-best time in the NCAA this season. On Friday night, Natalie Becker won the 5,000 in 16:57.82, and Andrea Geubelle placed third in her first outdoor long jump of the season at 6.31 meters (20-41⁄2).

SCOREBOARD

Roundup

Knicks 125, Thunder 120 OKLAHOMA CITY — Driving to the basket in crunch time, Raymond Felton slipped to the floor and lost the basketball in the process. All he could do was lunge back at it and bat it toward J.R. Smith as the shot clock ticked closer to zero. For the second straight possession, Smith beat the buzzer — this time with a three-pointer — and the Knicks closed out a victory against the Oklahoma City Thunder on Sunday. “He makes plays like that. He makes tough shots. Sometimes I think he likes to take the tougher shot than the easier shot. They still go in,” said teammate Carmelo Anthony, who had 36 points and 12 rebounds while moving ahead of Kevin Durant to become the NBA’s top scorer. “That shot, it was a nail in the coffin.” Smith finished with 22 points. Russell Westbrook had 37 points, 11 rebounds and eight assists for Oklahoma City, which fell a game behind San Antonio for first place in the West with five games left.

Girlfriend still grieving for dead love

Marcy Sugar and Kathy Mitchell anniesmailbox@comcast.net

exceptionally close to her fiance and began posting things on Facebook to remind Lisa of him. It finally reached the point where I had to say something, and I talked to Lisa’s cousin. I said posting such things keeps the fiance’s memory fresh in Lisa’s mind, which doesn’t help her heal. I asked the cousin to please get the family to stop doing this. Well, my request got back to Lisa, who became hostile and negative toward me. She broke things off. Annie, I love Lisa with every ounce of my be-

There’s TV beyond basketball The night is dominated by the conclusion of the 2013 NCAA Basketball Tournament (8 p.m., CBS), “The Voice” (7 p.m., NBC) and “Dancing With the Stars” (7 p.m., ABC), but it also includes some thought-provoking programs.

Many films about the Holocaust focus on the unthinkable and can become all but unwatchable in the process. The 2013 documentary “50 Children: The Rescue Mission of Mr. & Mrs. Kraus” (8 p.m., HBO) focuses on the concrete details, thereby making the incredible story more believable. A comfortable upper-middleclass couple from Philadelphia, Gilbert and Eleanor Kraus were unlikely heroes. But upon hearing about direct anecdotal evidence of Nazi atrocities in the late 1930s, Gilbert decided to do something. Much of “50 Children” is taken from Eleanor’s diary. At first, she thinks it’s simply “crazy” for American Jews to even think about setting foot in Nazi-controlled Vienna. Their grandchildren are seen here, describing Eleanor as more of a privileged homemaker than a radical activist. But “50 Children” proceeds, one step at a time, showing how the couple overcame the reservations of Jews and gentiles in America, made contact with Jewish groups in Vienna, navigated dangerous Nazioccupied streets and dealt with an openly hostile bureaucracy to save the lives of 50 children. The film’s most rewarding and bittersweet tales come from some of the surviving children, now in their 70s and 80s.

Few films were more steeped in the violence of their time than Martin Scorsese’s 1976 drama “Taxi Driver” (7 p.m., Sundance), starring Robert De Niro.

“Independent Lens” (9 p.m., PBS) presents the 2012 documentary “The House I Live In,” featuring stories about the human toll exacted by America’s longest conflict — the War on Drugs.

Tonight’s other highlights

Prom night approaches on the season finale of “The Carrie Diaries” (7 p.m., CW).

“Antiques Roadshow” (7 p.m., PBS) visits Cincinnati.

A wayward disciple may offer a lead to Carroll on “The Following” (8 p.m., Fox).

Pamela learns of J.R.’s scheme on “Dallas” (8 p.m., TNT).

Rachel closes in on the tower on “Revolution” (9 p.m., NBC).

ing. Was I wrong to speak up? — Lonely and Still in Love Dear Lonely: You meant well, but talking to Lisa’s cousin was inappropriate and appeared as if you were going behind her back and being controlling. Lisa has had a rough time. Regardless of what her family was posting online, she wasn’t ready to get back into the dating pool. It’s also likely that she will always connect you to this unfortunate time. Please move on. This ship has sailed. Dear Annie: I am an adopted 14-year-old and an only child. I would like to get in touch with my biological family. Everybody tells me to wait until I am 18, but I feel I should be able to contact at least one biological parent. From what my adoptive mom tells me, I have an older brother. I was also told that my parents tried to find my biological father, but out of the five

names listed on the adoption papers, none of them matched. Is there any way to contact my family? Even if I can’t find my mom, is there a way I could find my brother and speak with him? — Adopted in Arizona Dear Arizona: Please do not do this without the support of your family. Finding biological parents and siblings is not always the joyful reunion you dream of, and sometimes things don’t turn out well. It also can be hurtful to your adoptive parents if your relationship with them is undergoing changes, as it often does during the teen years, and you think Universal Crossword your biological family will be “better.” There is Edited by Timothy E.

JACQUELINE BIGAR’S STARS

For Monday, April 8: This year you will express yourself in an assertive and clear manner, and you’ll see excellent results. Still, you might become reclusive for short periods of time. If you are single, you could attract someone quite different. If you are attached, be on guard. The Stars Show the Kind of Day You’ll Have: 5-Dynamic; 4-Positive; 3-Average; 2-So-so; 1-Difficult Aries (March 21-April 19)  By midafternoon, you simply can’t be stopped. A change of pace often energizes you. Tonight: The world is your oyster. Taurus (April 20-May 20)  Use the morning for a meeting or getting an important errand done. Once that matter is handled, you’ll feel more relaxed and perhaps like a different person. Tonight: If you need some time to yourself, just say so. Gemini (May 21-June 20)  Keep reaching out to someone at a distance. You could be overwhelmed by everything that is falling into your lap. Tonight: Chat with a friend. Cancer (June 21-July 22)  Are you feeling burdened by everything you have to handle? Detach first, and then take a look at a different way of handling this overload of responsibilities. Tonight: Up late. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)  Spend the morning dealing with a situation that keeps getting postponed. By midafternoon, you could feel as if your spirit is free. Tonight: Go for the moment. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)  You might be tired of not having a stronger influence in a con-

You will have an important discussion with a loved one or an associate. Tonight: Follow someone else’s suggestion. Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)  Tap into your creativity in the morning. One idea builds from another, and so on. Tonight: Put your feet up and relax. Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)  You could be trying too hard to be reasonable, which prevents others from experiencing the excitement of your spontaneity. Being more authentic could move a situation along faster. Tonight: Keep it light. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)  Ask your follow-up questions. You will come out ahead of a situation and be fully aware of what needs to happen. Tonight: Head home early, if possible. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)  A quick look at your finances tells you what the problem might be. Discuss the issue with someone in the know. Tonight: Join a friend. Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)  You are in your element in the morning. Others respond to your requests. Tonight: Do some shopping on the way home.

Dear Annie: I am a 44-year-old guy who wears his heart on his sleeve. I met “Lisa” two years ago. I was fresh out of a divorce. Lisa was in terrible shape. Her mother had just died, and shortly after, she lost her fiance in a traffic accident. Then she moved back home to take care of her ailing father. It was love at first sight for me. But Lisa never fully grieved over her fiance. She told me he was her “soul mate,” and that she would never love another man the way she loved him. I told her I have all the patience in the world and would be there for her through her grief and sorrow. I knew she needed to deal with this in her own way, which included getting his name tattooed on her back. Again, I was patient and understanding. Lisa’s family began inviting me to their home. But her family had been

Louisville, UConn reach title game The Associated Press

Louisville 64, Cal 57 NEW ORLEANS — The more Louisville extends its remarkable run, the more coach Jeff Walz wants to make sure his Cardinals enjoy every moment. As long as they have one more upset in them for the NCAA championship game. The upstart Cardinals got 18 points — all on three-pointers — from Antonita Slaughter and they methodically clawed back from a 10-point halftime deficit to beat California 64-57 on Sunday night in the NCAA semifinals. For a team that has beaten Baylor, Tennessee and now the second-seeded Golden Bears, a little celebration was in order. “We’re going to go on Bourbon Street,” said Walz, whose team has one last practice today before Tuesday night’s title

game. “I’ll tell the kids, as long as they’re back by 2, we’re OK.” Bria Smith scored 17 on 6-of-7 shooting for the fifth-seeded Cardinals (298), who became the first team seeded lower than fourth to win a Final Four game. The result ensures an all-Big East Conference final in the league’s last season in its current form: Louisville will play Connecticut, which beat Notre Dame 83-65, one night after the Louisville men’s team plays Michigan for the championship. The Cardinals are the 10th school to have both basketball teams reach the Final Four in the same season. Only UConn won both titles in the same season, back in 2004. “The way I look at it, I think the men are trying to feed off of our success,” Walz said with a smirk before adding on a serious note that he’d received word from Atlanta that the Louisville men “were

in the hotel lobby jumping up and down and cheering for us.” Layshia Clarendon scored 17 for Cal (32-4), which had won the Spokane Region as a second seed. Gennifer Brandon added 12 for the Golden Bears and Brittany Boyd added 10 points. “Credit Louisville, which obviously has been really hot,” Cal coach Lindsay Gottlieb said. “They outfought us in the second half.” It was the third straight upset by Louisville, which had to beat defending national champion Baylor and the powerful Lady Vols just to get to the Big Easy. They will need to summon one more to win it all. Not that they’re worried about it. “No one expects us to be here,” Slaughter said. “No one expects us to be in the championship game. Just come together as a team and win as a team.” Shoni Schimmel, who

The Huskies will face Louisville in the title game Tuesday night, and it will be an all-Big East affair after the Cardinals rallied to beat California 64-57 in the other semifinal. UConn will be going for its eighth national championship to match Tennessee for the most in women’s basketball history. No team has dominated Geno Auriemma’s Huskies the way that the Irish had over the past few seasons. UConn (34-4) had lost the previous two national semifinals to the Irish and dropped three thrilling games this season to their rival. Stewart and her teammates wouldn’t let it happen again, ending the brilliant career of Notre Dame guard Skylar Diggins. She finished her last college game with 10

REPLACE A WOODEN AX HANDLE

R

eplacing an ax handle can be a daunting task, but for higher-quality ax heads, replacing a broken handle with a well-seasoned, kiln-dried one makes sense. Step 1: Place the ax head in a vise and drill holes into the top of the handle, until the handle can be removed. Chisel away any remaining traces of wood inside the eye of the ax head. Step 2: Choose a handle that is similar in shape to the eye of the ax head, but is slightly larger than the overall opening.

guide to reshape the handle tip with a rasp or spoke shave. Chisel away the wood a little at a time, hand fitting the head onto the handle at regular intervals until a reasonable fit is achieved. Step 5: Once the handle has been properly shaped, place the ax head upside down on a hard surface and insert the handle firmly into the eye. Step 6: With the handle reasonably secured in the eye of the ax head, grasp the ax firmly with one hand and hold it, head side down, above the ground in mid-air. Step 7: Using the other hand, hit the butt of the ax handle with a 3-pound hammer or other heavy object. Remarkably, the force of the blow will allow the head to move up the shaft. Continue to hit the

handle butt until the ax head has worked its way up the handle shaft and is starting to cut into the wood of the handle. Step 8: Once the ax head is secure on the handle, use a handsaw to cut the excess handle tip so less than half an inch of wood remains above the top of the ax head. The slightly protruding wood will swell larger than the eye and help hold the head in place. Step 9: Drive a wooden wedge into the split at the tip of the ax handle to lock the head into place. Use short, soft blows to avoid breaking the wedge. Step 10: Complete the job by driving a metal wedge into the handle tip, kittycorner across the center of the wooden wedge.

BRING ON THE GARLIC! NUTRITIOUS

Garlic is one of those ingredients I never ate growing up but I couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t imagine my life without now. I may be wrong, but I suspect that Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve probably had garlic every day for the past 10 years. This is despite the fact that I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t believe in vampires. I mean, if I did, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be all garlic necklace all the time, but instead Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d rather enjoy garlicâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lovely benefits in my body, not on it. Yes, because though I might kid a bit about vampires, garlic is no laughing matter when it comes to your health. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a member of the allium class of vegetables (also included: onions, leeks, scallions), which, studies suggest, â&#x20AC;&#x153;may reduce the risk of developing several types of cancer, especially cancers of the gastrointestinal tract,â&#x20AC;? according to the National Cancer Institute. In the Iowa Womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Study, a large study investigating diet and other risk factors related to cancer, it was found that women who consumed the highest amounts of garlic had a 50 percent lower risk of cancer of the distal colon. Other cancers itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been shown to lower the risk factors for include esophageal, stomach, prostate, pancreas and breast cancer. Though itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s unknown how much garlic you actually have to ingest to lower your personal risk of cancer, all these studies seem to suggest that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something that would be good to add or increase in your daily diet. Health benefits aside (though itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard to put them aside given what they are) garlic is pretty gosh-darn tasty, too. It kicks up any dish or appetizer, in my humble (adult) opinion. Garlic hummus. Garlic bread. Garlic on top of a salad. Roasted garlic in my soup. Potatoes and garlic? Yes. Heck, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve even been known to add it to my green juice concoctions (much to the dismay of my husband â&#x20AC;&#x201D; youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d think he was a vamp with as much as he hates it when I do that). At any rate, it was rather difficult for me to pick out which garlic recipe I wanted to share, because, really, I would share them all. Even if that meant a shortage of garlic at the store. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t worry, I grow my own. And I know some rather fine farmers around these parts who do a fine job growing it and wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mind sharing. But, in the end, I decided to share a garlic recipe that features kale. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a side dish that uses two great spring finds. These two are perfect mild-weather companions,

GARLICKY KALE features two great spring ingredients.

1 to 2 heaping tablespoons chopped garlic (5 to 9 cloves) Salt, black pepper and red pepper to taste Heat medium saucepan on medium heat. Once hot, add coconut oil. When the coconut oil is melted, add kale. Stir. Add 1 tablespoon of water and keeping stirring. If needed, add a second tablespoon of water. When the kale has turned bright green and wilted a bit, add garlic. Stir. When the kale has condensed down a bit more and the water has mostly evaporated, take off heat. Add salt, black pepper and red pepper to taste. Serve immediately. Serves 2 to 4.

stuff. This little roasted garlic and tomato crostini is one of my go-to party snacks, but it is so easy to make that it also makes appearances at regular-old weeknight dinners and brunches and all kinds of places. When summer finally comes and you have tomatoes in your garden, try this. I always grow some cherry tomatoes because they seem to be prolific and hard to kill, and they are perfect for roasting for recipes like this one. I also always grow fresh basil because itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s another easy-to-maintain garden staple that can be used in all manner of dishes. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nice to put together a recipe that just requires a trip out back for half the ingredients.

ROASTED GARLIC AND TOMATO CROSTINI 1 cup grape or cherry tomatoes, halved 2 heads of fresh garlic 2 tablespoons olive oil 2 tablespoons softened butter (or more olive oil will do) Four or five large basil leaves About 12 slices of baguette Kosher salt Cracked black pepper

When we decided on garlic for our ingredient this month, I was a little paralyzed. Not because I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know what to do with garlic, but because there were too many choices. I use garlic, either fresh or ground, in almost everything I cook. I decided I wanted something that really highlighted the best that garlic can be, and in my book, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s roasted. I went with something very simple that would allow the garlic to really show its amazing

/     ROASTED GARLIC AND TOMATO CROSTINI is a treat with fresh basil. Preheat your oven to 425 degrees. Line a baking dish with parchment or aluminum foil (youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll regret it if you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t â&#x20AC;&#x201D; I promise). Cut the top off your garlic bulbs, exposing the cloves inside. Place them and your tomatoes in the baking dish and drizzle with olive oil. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Bake for about 30 minutes or until the tomatoes start to brown. When the garlic and tomatoes have about 10 minutes left, slice your baguette into toasts and spread with a little butter or olive oil. Arrange them on a baking sheet and bake until they start to brown on top. Remove everything from the oven

and let it cool a bit. Then just use your fingers to pull the roasted cloves from the papery outside and squeeze the soft insides onto the crostinis. Put a few tomatoes atop the garlic. Chiffonade the basil leaves (just roll them up together and cut the roll into strips with a sharp knife) and top each toast with a few bits of basil. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s it! Both garlic and tomatoes take on an entirely different flavor when theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re roasted. The tomatoes are almost like candy. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an improvement, if you ask me, upon traditional bruschetta, which is so good itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really hard to improve upon, so thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really saying something. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Megan Stuke

Brides: You may be tempted to cut costs by omitting inner envelopes, or to cut time by leaving them blank. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t, Hocking says. This part of the invitation lets guests know exactly who is invited to the wedding. Write mailing and return addresses on the outer envelope, of course, then list each invitee in the household by name on the inner envelope. Guests: Take a look at that inner envelope, and donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t bring or ask to bring children, significant others or guests if theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not invited. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Many couples specifically do not want children at their wedding, or have not budgeted for the cost of having your entire family there,â&#x20AC;? Hocking says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t take situations such as this personally; instead find a sitter and enjoy yourselves. Perhaps other couples that you know attending the wedding are in the same predicament. Pooling resources together and hiring one sitter for all the children is an option.â&#x20AC;?

When invited to a wedding, how do you decide on what to wear? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d say, first of all, the season and the time of the wedding. Evening tends to be more formal. I go with family to a lot of weddings, so Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d also ask my sister. â&#x20AC;? Jennifer Swenson, student, Lawrence

INVITEES

Brides: If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like guests to arrive in specific attire, such as black tie, specify it on your invitation. If you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t specify, be sure the design and tone of your invites reflect the level of formality youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going for. Guests: If the invitation specifies attire, follow it! If not, take a hint from the design, Hocking says. Also consider the time of day, setting and season of the event. For a Saturday afternoon wedding, a coat and tie is generally appropriate, while evening weddings call for a suit or coat and tie with dark slacks. Never wear jeans unless the invitation specifically calls for them â&#x20AC;&#x201D; thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a difference between wedding casual and â&#x20AC;&#x153;weekend down-home casual,â&#x20AC;? Hocking says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you are unsure of the dress code, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re safer erring on the side of dressing up too much,â&#x20AC;? Hocking says. At the same time, she adds, never dress to upstage the couple â&#x20AC;&#x201D; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s their day to be the center of attention, not yours. Save the micro-minis for a different kind of party.

EVEN IF THEREâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;S NO DRESS CODE SPECIFIED, the design and feel of a wedding invitation should clue you into the formality of the affair. The â&#x20AC;&#x153;Mud Truckâ&#x20AC;? design from Ruff House Art, Lawrence, would be perfect for a laid-back event. or sites to visit? Would driving directions or a map help guests find the venue and get there on time? Have you arranged special transportation for guests? Do you have a wedding website with additional information? Details like these donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t belong on the formal invitation, but including an accommodation card can be a huge help for guests, Hocking says. Guests: Make your life easier and hang onto this card â&#x20AC;&#x201D; especially the directions. Lost or not, being late to a wedding ceremony is a faux pas youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll really want to avoid. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Features reporter Sara Shepherd can be reached at 832-7187.

Crossbody bags are essential in any casual outdoor activity because you don’t want to be carrying your bag in one hand and food or drinks in the other; that never ends well. Being that these activities happen outside, you should without a doubt have your stylish shades on hand. One last suggestion would be to skip the chunky jewelry. I gravitate toward simple, delicate pieces that won’t distract me when I’m on the go. Evening events, like weddings, are much more formal, so break

out the dresses and heels for these. There are so many different styles of dresses out there, but I love the midi length right now. It’s a modest and sleek look that’s right in between the mini and maxi dress, and hits just below the knee. Because the hemline is longer, I would look for a sleeveless style because fashion is all about balance. Fit and flare dresses that are fitted on the top and flare out at the waistline are also one of my favorite styles this season. Heels or wedges with a formal

or elegant feel are perfect options for this type of occasion. This time of year, I like to bring a light jacket thanks to the alwayschanging and unpredictable Kansas weather. A trench coat is the ideal jacket because it is a classic and will never go out of style. It’s also lightweight, which is another reason to snag one for spring. A wedding is a great excuse to accessorize with the gaudy jew-

els so you don’t want to skimp on those. Layer on the bracelets, rings and throw on a statement necklace to really make your outfit pop. — Emily Kennedy is one-half of the stylish duo behind The Fashion Column blog she shares with her twin sister, Elizabeth.

Contest on to select new co-author

Double TAKE

Dr. Wes: Today begins the eighth contest to find the 10th co-author of Double Take. The winner will receive a $1,000 scholarship from Dr-Wes.com, plus $100 from Central National Bank for the winnerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s freshman year at college. Even more valuable is the line item on a college app. In addition to writing Double Take, co-authors make TV, radio and live appearances with me. This year, so did the runner-up. Submission deadline is 8 p.m. Friday, April 26. Interviews are tentatively set for the weekend of May 4. Hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what it takes to join a remarkable group of young people for the 10th anniversary of Double Take:

 2014 area high school senior or exceptional junior. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had five winners from Free State, three from LHS, and one from Bishop Seabury; seven girls and two guys; one junior and eight seniors.

 One-year commitment from August 2013 through August 2014.

 Skilled writer for class projects or, preferably, yearbook or school paper.

 Sufficient maturity and sensibility to be credible when writing about sex, relationships, substance abuse, school, technology, mental health, etc.

 Happy to share open-minded opinions about the problems of adolescence, while working as a team over email and churning out one 350-word column 50 weeks a year. Able to withstand public critique â&#x20AC;&#x201D; of which there is plenty.

 Comfortable with radio and TV appearances.

 Agreeable parents. This is an increasingly high-profile and occasionally controversial job. Review the following carefully, then submit all materials to ask@dr-wes.com:

 Write a 350-word essay offering your best advice to the challenge question (at top right of page). The best answers are rarely obvious. Essays are blind reviewed and

DR. WES CRENSHAW AND KATIE GUYOT ranked by judges that include members of the Kansas City Writers Group, a teacher not in the purview of the contestants, the current co-author, a second teenager and me.

List in your email 10 topics youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like to tackle in Double Take.

Ask a teacher or other adult (not your parent) to write a brief email outlining your strengths and weaknesses as a columnist. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll announce winners in mid-May, and publish the top essay in the paper and the others online. Submission implies publication release for the Journal-World. Katie: The most difficult part of writing every Double Take column is the first sentence. Let me share my writing process to give contestants a head start. While my computer fades into screen-saver mode, I shift my position on the couch at 10-second intervals. I run to the kitchen for a handful of M&Ms. I engage in a staring contest with my rabbit. I make another M&M run. Time disappears into the night or the next morning. I do not call this procrastination. That would require attention to Pinterest. In-

CHALLENGE QUESTION Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m a 16-year-old guy who has always wanted to join the military. I want to go in at 17 and my recruiter thinks Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be ready, but my parents refuse to sign off. They donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even want me to go if Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m 18 and graduated. I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an honor to serve my country, like my grandpa did, and high school is just not for me. My parents say too many useless wars have been fought by kids my age, and too many have died. I say itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s my life, and in a year and a half theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll have no say. What do you think? stead, I use this time to consider the weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s topic, forming and reforming opinions until I reach a thread of advice I would hope to follow myself. The M&Ms are essential in forming this advice. Each letter or topic is like a puzzle, deserving a well-considered solution. They push me to analyze adolescence while living through it, using what Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve learned, observed and experienced to consider the issues that confront teens from every social strata and life path. Given the diversity of topics, co-authors must write about issues with which they have no personal experience. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve never had a job. My experience with boyfriends is sparse. The closest Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve come to substance abuse was reading Jack Kerouacâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;On the Road.â&#x20AC;? I do not use SnapChat. Yet, in the end thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s only one prerequisite for sharing opinions on what itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s like to be a teenager: simply being a teenager and knowing teenagers and thinking about how we are. As you ponder the first sentence of your submission essay, channel your unique worldview. Wes has the professional perspective covered. The teen take is yours.

Pets often live in pain without our knowing it BY JEFF KAHLER, THE MODESTO BEE

*

s your pet in pain? How do you know? Pain assessment in animals can be challenging to diagnose because they do not talk to us, at least in a way we can understand. Statistics show that greater than 80 percent of dogs older than 9 and cats older than 11 have some degree of osteoarthritis. That means these animals are living in pain. Osteoarthritis is not the only cause of pain. There has been enough research to determine that there are some obvious and other not so obvious signs an animal is in pain. In dogs, certainly, decreased activity might represent a response to pain. Of course there are many other possibilities but pain must be high on the list. Bone pain in the limbs can cause lameness,

another rather obvious sign. Dogs that change their posture when urinating or defecating might be doing so because of pain in their backs, especially near the pelvis. Some of these dogs might move along as they defecate to alleviate pain. Some of these dogs might leak urine and drop stool as well, depending on the severity of their back problem. These symptoms should be addressed. Cats can sometimes be more subtle in their pain responses and sometimes not. A cat that becomes more aggressive toward a caretaker may be dealing with pain. You might pet your cat only to have it turn toward you and hiss or even bite when you pet it in a particular location. The feline is likely responding to a painful stimulus. Cats will at times excessively lick or bite at themselves in response to an area in their body where they feel pain. They

might lick excessively at the air; this is especially true with pain in the mouth. Cats that start urinating outside the litter box or spraying when they had not done so in the past may be dealing with pain in their urinary tract, especially their bladder. They might stop jumping to places they had in the past or not climb stairs as readily as in the past. More subtle signs of pain might include spending time in unusual locations or sometimes hiding. The key to making a pain diagnosis is knowing your pet’s routines and habits. Don’t assume your dog is slowing down just because it is older. Old age is not a disease. If something changes in your pet’s routine, it is up to you to figure out why. If they are in pain, they need relief. — Jeff Kahler is a veterinarian in Modesto, Calif.
