3 seriously injured in head-on collision By Shaun Hittle and Joe Preiner,

A 5-year-old and a 24-year-old were killed and three others were seriously injured in a two-vehicle accident Saturday on Kansas Highway 10, near mile marker 11 just south of Eudora. According to a report from the Kansas Highway Patrol, the accident occurred about 3:30 p.m. The 24year-old, Eudora resident Ryan

Pittman, was pronounced dead at the scene, while the 5-year-old, Eudora resident Canen Shutt, was not breathing when emergency crews arrived. He was taken to Overland Park Regional Medical Center and was later pronounced dead. The accident occurred when a Toyota Camry driven by Pittman left the eastbound lanes of K-10 and crossed over the median. The vehicle then collided head-on with a Dodge Caravan traveling west.

Two helicopters transported two of the patients, while the other was transported by ambulance. Eudora resident Danny Basel, 57, was the driver of the van and was transported to a Kansas City-area hospital. Deborah Basel, 51, Eudora, was taken to Kansas University Hospital. Courtlyn Shutt, 23 months old, was taken to a Kansas City-area hospital. Condition updates for the three injured patients were not available

After 26 years, Lecompton mayor ready to retire By Chad Lawhorn

LECOMPTON — When you have arrived in the 300 block of Elmore Street, you indeed have arrived at the power center of this northwest Douglas County town of about 600 people. On one end of the block, right next to the park, is the community’s largest media mogul: the public bulletin board. It is here that you’ll find messages ranging from Vote on Tuesday to Chili Feed on Wednesday. In the middle of the block is City Hall. Don’t be confused, a local may tell you. It was the fire station. But when the firefighters got

new digs, a few fellows did a little remodeling. Now it is the headquarters for the city’s employees — both of them. And then, there’s the other end of the block. That’s where most mornings Roy Paslay will walk out the front door of his home and make the few paces down the sidewalk to City Hall. He’ll check the mail, say his morning hellos, and see if there is anything he can do before he heads off to his carpenter’s job. It is not likely that the 300 block of Elmore Street is going to change anytime soon. But make no mistake, Please see MAYOR, page 7A

It’s a bad day for people who throw around ugly national stereotypes. The “Mexicans are lazy” slur has a long and distasteful history in the United States stretching back to Speedy Gonzales and forward to Google, where a search for “lazy Mexicans” yields 1.25 million results. But that might be about to change — to the benefit of Mexicans, and to the detriment of Belgians. A report by the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development says Mexicans work more hours each day than any other OECD nation. Mexicans spend 10 hours a day working, including paid and unpaid work like cooking, cleaning and shopping. Belgians spend the least amount of total work each day at 7 hours. The OECD average, by the way, is 8 hours per day. Here’s how the top 10 countries break down in hours worked, according to the OECD: 1. Mexico (10 hours) 2. Japan 3. Portugal 4. Canada 5. Estonia 6. Austria 7. China 8. New Zealand 9. United States 10. Slovenia Nine of the bottom 10 countries come from Europe, with South Africa as the sole African nation on the list of 26 countries: 1.

KNI fights Brownback budget for survival By Scott Rothschild

TOPEKA — Frances Sapp of Reading explains plainly what she believes would happen to her 43year-old son Sammy if the Kansas Neurological Institute were closed. “I think he would die or be hospitalized shortly after being moved,” Sapp said. Sapp was one of many parents and guardians of KNI residents who pushed back hard against a budget proposal by Gov. Sam Brownback to close within a twoyear period the state hospital that serves people with severe mental and physical issues. Brownback said his proposal would save money in the face of a looming $500 million budget shortfall. He said the residents of KNI could receive the help they needed in group homes in communities.

Saturday evening. According to KHP reports, Pittman was the only victim not wearing a seat belt. Westbound K-10 traffic was backed up several miles, and crews diverted westbound traffic off K-10 on the East 2300 Road exit through Eudora. Traffic flow returned to normal about 7 p.m. Saturday.

Both the House and Senate have rejected Brownback’s plan for now. Still, legislators have yet to approve a budget for the next fiscal year. They return later this month to put a plan together. And folks like Sapp are keeping a vigilant eye on

The longtime bar Bullwinkle’s has been operating without proper zoning for many years. The business has been allowed to operate because it is considered a grandfathered use in the city’s zone code. Currently, the bar is restricted to being only a Cereal Malt Beverage establishment that must close at midnight. But the new zoning and the special use permit would allow the bar to apply for a liquor license, which would allow it to stay open until 2 a.m. All the properties are seeking to be

rezoned to the city’s new Mixed Use district, which would allow a mix of residential and commercial development on the properties. None of the property owners have filed any plans to redevelop the area. But the zoning is being recommended by planners because the newly adopted Oread Neighborhood plan calls for the area to be zoned Mixed Use in the future. The list of properties up for rezoning are: 1340 Tenn.; 1344 Tenn.; 1343 Tenn.; 1403 Tenn.; 1400 Ohio; and 413 W. 14th St.

er scrapbooks for each of the residents. First-year employees undergo more than 300 hours of training, and each resident has a person who serves as his or her advocate. KNI also has a medical center with nurses on-site round the clock, a dentist, a physician on call, a pharmacy, X-Ray technician and many other professional services. Many people with developmental disabilities who are in group homes come to KNI for medical treatment. They also come to KNI to get assistive technology made in the “MacGyver” room. KNI also has a wheelchair clinic where chairs are adapted to the individual needs of each person. In one building is the Hidden Treasures Mall, where 85 percent of the residents work in a number of retail shops open for public business.

Repeated attempts to close KNI has been the focus of attempts to shut it down in the past. Groups that advocate on behalf of those with disabilities have sought the closure, saying it would be better for the residents, and the state could save money that could be spent on Kansans with disabilities who are on waiting lists for home-based services. Officials have also said the KNI property could be sold with money going toward those with disabilities. KNI, which has 500 employees, costs approximately $29 million per year to operate with nearly $11 million coming from state general tax funds. But the advocates usually come up against the parents and guardians of the residents who say the needed

support in community-based groups homes is just not there. In 2009, a state commission recommended closing it within three years and transferring residents to either more community- or homebased settings or Parsons State Hospital. But then-Gov. Mark Parkinson rejected the plan. “I agree that serving individuals in the community can lead to a better quality of life. In spite of that, I also have concluded that it is currently not feasible to close KNI and consolidate all residents at Parsons,” Parkinson said. “It will take time to reduce the populations at both facilities to a level that makes consolidation possible,” he said.

Part of community Sapp says what most people don’t understand is that KNI residents have frequent opportunities to interact in the community through shopping trips and social and recreational events. “I don’t think people really realize what KNI is,” she said. “They think it is a dark place behind walls, but there are seven in my son’s group, and they (the group) have their own kitchen, living room area. “Each has their own home. When he is well enough, they will go to Walmart, a movie, the library, or they’ll go fishing with us. They’re not stuck behind dark walls. They’re already out in the community,” she said. — Statehouse reporter Scott Rothschild can be reached at 785-423-0668.

Eco-friends join together for Earth Day bash


William, Kate Pez figures auctioned The auction of a Pez figure featuring busts of Kate Middleton and Prince William has skyrocketed on eBay. Thursday afternoon in London, the auction had reached $12,803.57 — a steep price, especially considering that the figures look as much like Monica Lewinsky and John Boehner as they do the royal couple. The Pez dispenser is a one-of-a-kind, and it was “purely hand made except for the base,” according to Pez. Sadly, the dispenser hardly does justice to Kate Middleton’s royal assets the way Vanity Fair photos do. And a GlobalPost source points out that “they defn (sic) gave Prince William way too much hair.” (The source requested anonymity to protect any potential future prospects with Prince William, wedding or no wedding.) Still, Pez is Pez, and as Pez put it: “One of the world’s most iconic brands has created one of the year’s most iconic collectibles.” The proceeds will go to the Starlight Children’s Foundation.

Cambodians sing about Facebook There’s the woefully straightforward “Facebook ends love.” The lively and urgent “Facebook friend! My girlfriend kicked me out!” And the subtly confounding, “Facebook waits love.” What they have in common is that they are songs about Facebook, and they’re all the rage in Cambodia. In this country of roughly 15 million, only about 260,000 people are Facebook users. But the socialnetworking site has nonetheless proven itself the muse of the moment, according to Global Voices. Young Khmer artists are pondering the role Facebook plays in their love lives and, yes, putting those thoughts to song. It’s a far cry from the more subversive role Facebook has played in the Middle East and North Africa, where it’s been used to organize protest movements. In Cambodia, Facebook sings a different tune. Like this one, “Facebook disturbs my love,” in which Khemarak Sereymon croons about how Facebook seems to have stolen away the affections of his girlfriend. 3 | NORTH KOREA

Kim Jong Il predicts the future? Here’s a rule any competent prophet knows: vagueness pays. If you’re forecasting something monumental, don’t be too specific about the when it will materialize. Or at least put a lot of time between you and your vision, lest events don’t transpire the way you foresaw them. Kim Jong Il, who runs reclusive North Korea, is facing just this sort of predicament. At issue is a nation of 24 million people, many of them hungry and suffering. Kim has predicted that on April 15, 2012, the “doors to the strong and prosperous state will swing open.” This would emancipate the people from the hardship they had endured during the “arduous march” of the 1990s, when famine killed millions. The prophecy dates back to the late 1990s. After the death of his father Kim Il Sung — the Generalisimo and Eternal President of the Republic — the younger Kim needed a slogan to define his reign, an era of hardship following the Soviet Union’s fall. A seminal editorial explained that the country was to build a strong military and a prosperous economy, in which “people live without envying other countries,” according to author Jae Cheon Lim. 4 | NEW YORK CITY

Languages traced back to single tongue Scientists say they have traced the world’s 6,000 modern languages — from English to Mandarin — back to a single “mother tongue,” an ancestral language spoken in Africa 50,000 to 70,000 years ago. New research, published in the journal Science, suggests this single ancient language resulted in human civilization — a Diaspora — as well as advances in art and hunting tool technology, and laid the groundwork for all the world’s cultures. The research, by Quentin Atkinson from the University of Auckland in New Zealand, also found that speech evolved far earlier than previously thought. And the findings implied, though did not prove, that modern language originated only once, an issue of controversy among linguists, according to the New York Times.

Dressed as a giant rain drop, Tyler Trarbach was the only bad weather present at Saturday’s Earth Day Celebration in South Park. Trarbach, who was encouraging people to visit displays on water-quality issues, was among the many who dressed in costumes promoting a cleaner, healthier world. With painted-on whiskers and a hat with ears, Nick Benson, a member of KU Environs, was making notebooks out of old cereal boxes and 100 percent recycled paper. “Kids love it,” he said, and

noted it was a way to show people how to use something they would typically throw away. “It’s reduce, reuse, recycle with recycling being the last option,” Benson said. Other folks wore plastic bags, bottle tabs and even a compact fluorescent light bulb in recognition of Earth Day. Organizers said more than

1,000 people came to Saturday’s celebration, which had about 75 earth-friendly booths lined up in South Park. “This is the largest crowd we have seen in the afternoon,” said organizer Kathy Richardson, who is head of the city of Lawrence’s waste reduction and recycling operations. “The weather is perfect.” As usual, folks lined up to try out the all-vegan food prepared by the Animal Outreach of Kansas.

Dozens of area high school students visited local liquor stores Saturday morning, but they weren’t trying to get anything. They had a message for of-age consumers: Don’t buy alcohol for them. Teams of high school students, assisted by community agencies and organized by the Lawrence Youth Coalition, fanned out across town to place more than 1,000 warning stickers on cases of beer as part of Sticker Shock Lawrence. “As a community, we’re not going to support underage drinking,” said Jen Jordan, one of the event volunteers and prevention director at DCCCA. Free State High senior Sam Corkins, methodically slapping the warning stickers on cases of Keystone Light in the back cooler of Cork & Barrel, 2000 W. 23rd St., said raising awareness about underage drinking is needed. “It just seemed like a good cause,” he said. “Being in high school, you know there’s a lot of this going on.” Local law enforcement, staff from the state’s Alcoholic Beverage Control and numerous area liquor stores partnered for the event. Jordan said the idea for the project came from a 2010 survey of Lawrence youth that found 44 percent of area high school seniors had consumed alcohol in the past month, some of which was purchased for them by someone over the age of 21. Jordan said she was impressed that students gave up their Saturday for the volunteer event. Corkins, meanwhile, said it was worth it.

Katie Barnett has always been an animal lover. At 16, she adopted her first dog, Carolina, an Australian shepherd, with her mom’s help. At 19, she adopted a rottweiler while on her own at college. Her passion for animals has

grown since then, and she’s looking to make a difference in a bigger way. Barnett, 30, a third-year law student at Kansas University, is organizing an animal cruelty prosecution clinic at the school. The clinical student will work with animal control, animal cruelty investigators at the Humane Society, police and

prosecutors to make sure cases follow the right path and are prosecuted to the end. According to Barnett’s research, the clinic could be the first of its kind in the United States. “This is the chance for me to give the animals a voice and a place in the justice system,”

Trial set for woman accused in traffic death

OVERLAND PARK — An August trial date has been set for a woman accused of running down and killing a 71year-old woman as she gardened in the front yard of her Overland Park home. Prosecutors have charged 21-year-old Jill Conaghan in the July 2009 death of Sandra Carocari. Conaghan faces counts of involuntary manslaughter DUI, leaving the scene of an accident, failure to stay in a traffic lane and driving on a sidewalk area. The Kansas City Star reported that Judge James Franklin Davis set the Aug. 29 trial date on Friday. Davis also appointed Judge Peter Ruddick as a special master to review Conaghan’s


medical records and those of substance abuse treatment she began after the accident.

Plea in crash triggers law license suspension TOPEKA — A Topeka lawyer who pleaded no contest to involuntary manslaughter and other felonies in a traffic accident that killed a bicyclist has been suspended from practicing law in Kansas. The suspension will remain in effect while disciplinary proceedings against 40-year-old Marc Schultz are resolved. Schultz will be sentenced in June. He was charged in the death last September of 55-year-old Timothy Roberts, a financial planner who was fatally injured when a car hit his bicycle on a Topeka street.

LAW ENFORCEMENT REPORT • Police are investigating a body found on a bench in front of Douglas County Senior Services, 745 Vt., around 10 a.m. Saturday. According to Lawrence Police Sgt. Ted Bordman, a staff member from senior services called 911 to report the body after it was found on the bench directly in front of the agency's building. The case is currently being investigated as an unattended death, Bordman said. There were no additional details available from police about the case. The entrance to the building has been roped off as police investigate. Lawrence Police Sgt. Dave

Hubbel said Saturday evening that no foul play was suspected in the man's death, but because he was only 57 years old, the case was investigated.

Umpteen zillion years ago, I remember reading something about the NCAA and insurance policies for student-athletes with the potential to go pro. As I recall, they could either buy or were provided with a $1 million insurance policy to protect them against loss of future earnings should they be injured while staying in school to play their sport. What’s the reality about this?


Ben Brown, art student, Lawrence “No, I generally remember Earth Day a week afterward.”

The NCAA addresses this issue on its website, which in part,

reads: Exceptional Student-Athlete Disability Insurance Program Introduction: In October 1990, a disability insurance program was initiated for exceptional student-athletes at National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) institutions in the sports of football and men's basketball. In April 1991, the program was expanded to include exceptional student-athletes in the sport of baseball. In June 1993, exceptional student-athletes in men's ice hockey became eligible for the program. Coverage became available for exceptional student-athletes in the sport of women's basketball in August 1998.

The program enables qualifying student-athletes, as approved by the program administrator, to purchase a disability insurance contract with pre-approved financing, if necessary. This program will provide the student-athlete with the opportunity to protect against future loss of earnings as a professional athlete due to a disabling injury or sickness that may occur during the collegiate career. Eligible Student-Athletes: Student-athletes with remaining athletics eligibility at NCAA institutions in the sports of intercollegiate football, men's or women's basketball, baseball, or men's ice hockey, who have demonstrated they have professional potential to be selected in the f irst three rounds of the upcoming National Football League or National Hockey League draft or the first round of the upcoming draft of the National Basketball Association, Major League Baseball, or Women's National Basketball Association, are eligible for this program.

More than 300 volunteers lend a hand for Day of Caring By Shaun Hittle

It certainly wasn’t the most glamorous volunteer job. But that’s OK with Tracy Gillett, who was scrubbing and cleaning metal garden bins inside Van Go Mobile Arts, 715 N.J., on Saturday as part of the annual Day of Caring volunteer event. “It’s all good,” said Gillett, who was joined by Best Buy co-worker Shyla Espinoza. “It’s all for a good cause.” Gillett and Espinoza were two of more than 300 volunteers scattered across Douglas County working on 25 projects at various nonprofit organizations. Crews performed a variety of tasks, such as planting gardens at schools or fixing up buildings at social service agencies. “It’s really exciting to see so many people come out on one day,” said Shannon Reid from Roger Hill Volunteer Center. “And to know how much work is being accomplished in one day.” Reid helped coordinate the day’s activities and traveled to some of the sites. In addition to giving some local nonprofits a helping hand, Reid said, the annual event also encourages volunteerism year-round in Lawrence. “It’s fun for one day, and then they get the volunteering bug,” she said.

Barnett said. Barnett and her husband, Anthony, started Game Dog Guardian, a local organization that rehabilitates pit bulls and helps find adoptive homes. She also lobbies for Best Friends Animal Society around Kansas. Adding a law clinic seemed like a natural addition to her repertoire when KU law professor William Westerbeke approached her about starting one. “She has a long history in involvement in animal rights issues,” Westerbeke said. Many law students do clinical work already, and he said designating one to specifically coordinate and keep track of the animal cases would be beneficial for all involved. It would save the Humane Society money and be terrific experience for the student, he said. “It would guarantee, or hopefully enable, us to have those cases handled more efficiently or in a prompter way,” he said. Barnett started researching how to put together the clinic two years ago, around the time when there were a couple highprofile animal cruelty cases in

Ex-bank head’s indicted wife bought plane ticket TOPEKA — A Kansas woman indicated along with her exbank-president-husband in a conspiracy scheme is accused of reserving a plane ticket to Venezuela a day after the deadline passed for her to accept or reject a plea deal. The Topeka Capital-Journal reported that the prosecution raised the claim in response to defense requests that the charges against 47-year-old Brenda Becker should be dropped. She was in court Friday for a preliminary hearing. Becker’s husband, Scott, has been sentenced to federal prison time after pleading guilty in a scheme that cost Meriden State Bank about $1 million. A private investigator for the defense testified that Brenda Becker panicked when she booked the flight. According to testimony, she canceled the ticket after the prosecution informed her attorney that the FBI knew about the flight. The Beckers had a boat docked in Belize.

LANG DAVIS OF SUNFLOWER BANK CLEANS UP a door at Stepping Stones, 1100 Wakarusa Drive. Saturday was a Day of Caring in Douglas County as volunteers worked on projects for nonprofits. But for many, it doesn’t take much of a push to get local volunteers hooked, she said. “It’s the spirit of Lawrence,” from the V word.” Also a success was Complete Streets’ bike valet service. People who rode their bikes to the celebration could leave them with the organization without having to lock them or worry about having them stolen or damaged. Volunteer Charlie Bryan said he heard that bike valets in other cities had about 2 percent of the crowd use the service. Midway through the after-

Lawrence. She had conversations with all involved parties to make sure the city and state agencies were even interested in the clinic. “Everybody needed to be on board to work with the law school,” she said. “I spent a lot of time researching, seeing what everybody does.” Barnett did ride-alongs with the police, went on checks with the animal cruelty investigators and went to court. She spoke with organizations around the country, such as Lewis & Clark Law School’s Center for Animal Law Studies and the Humane Society of the United States, who expressed interest in how the program developed. This spring, Barnett has been gathering open and impending cases in Douglas County. She will develop a manual of how future students in the clinic should proceed. “I’m doing a trial run to see how everything works,” she said. “I’m getting out all the kinks and really tailoring the position so everyone knows what to do. There’s never been a person to collect everything.”

Barnett hopes it will, and getting everybody on board was a big part of that.

Guide dog undergoes surgery with help from community By Shaun Hittle

Comet the guide dog underwent surgery Wednesday to remove a life-threatening tumor and is on her way to recovery. And Comet’s owner, Kansas University graduate student Chikako Mochizuki, said her beloved companion of nearly a decade is enjoying being pampered as she recovers at the Kansas State University Veterinary Clinic. Receiving daily updates

from staff, Mochizuki said Comet — featured in a Journal-World article last week — has taken to being spoon fed by staff. “Speaking of a princess,” Mochizuki said. Thanks to an outpouring of community support, Mochizuki said, the $6,000 needed for the surgery has been raised. In addition, she’s received emails from people offering rides to visit Comet and even an offer to throw Comet a party when she returns home.

“I’m overwhelmed,” Mochizuki said. “I have no idea how to thank everyone.” Though the surgery went well, Mochizuki said Comet still has a long road to recovery. “It’s a slow process,” she said. But she’s hopeful and said the strong support helped her get through the tough days. “The kind thoughts for Comet kept me going every day,” she said. — Reporter Shaun Hittle can be reached at 832-7173.

the political landscape of Lecompton sure will. For 26 of the last 30 years, Paslay has either been mayor or a council member in Lecompton. But that will soon end. Paslay did not seek re-election in the most recent campaign. At Monday’s City Council meeting, he’ll swear in the new mayor — and probably smile a little bit too. “I think I’ll be relieved. Of course now,� he says with a laugh, “I’ll have to sit out there in the audience and stick my hand up and ask the council when they’re going to get something done.� He knows the routine, for sure. ���

In the big cities like Lawrence (remember, even Eudora is 10 times bigger than Lecompton), the sticky issues facing politicians may be about tax abatements or Walmarts or how tall a multistory building ought to be. In Lecompton, they’re a bit different. The city has a clerk and a maintenance man. That means there is no administrative army to protect the mayor and council members from the day-to-day issues of city government. Peruse the recent minutes of the Lecompton City Council and you will find the group has heard the following: � A report about a certain resident’s horses that keep getting out and causing extra work for the maintenance man; � An inquiry about why the city’s dump truck doesn’t have the city’s logo on it. (Answer: The magnetic sign must not have been on that day.) � Multiple requests from residents who wanted a refund on their water bills because there had been waterline breaks that inflated their totals. � One resident who wasn’t seeking a refund on his water bill but did want the council to check to see if he had paid last month’s bill. So, no, they’re not exactly big-city issues. But if you think they’re small, evidently you’ve never tried to deal with them. “Oh, I can tell you it has gotten kind of heated down here from time to time,�


Here are some more interesting tidbits pulled from the report, which examined a variety of social and economic factors: â—? Most unpaid work is housework. Mexicans do the most, at more than 3 hours per day, and Koreans the least, at 1 hour and 19 minutes. Much of this time is spent cooking. Americans spend the least time cooking each day (30 minutes) and Turks the most (74 minutes). Most people spend around 50 minutes a day cooking. â—? Shopping also makes up a big part of unpaid work.

Paslay, 61, says. Paslay, like many smalltown government officials, can point to one type of issue in particular that can get testy in a hurry: telling a fellow resident that he needs to clean up his place. But it is definitely one of the more frequent and important chores that government undertakes in a small town, Paslay said. Nothing hurts a small town’s growth prospects worse than getting labeled “dirty.� He said the key in those cases is to treat people like you would want to be treated, and to be able to point to a specific city code. This is one instance where governing on a case-by-case basis will produce a lot of headaches. It is a shame that it sometimes has to come to all this, Paslay said. The world would be a simpler place if folks just took to heart the words he has said many times before. “If you just keep your yard clean and your house painted, chances are we’ll get along fine,� Paslay said. ���

Doesn’t all of this sound like fun? No? Evidently, lots of other Lecompton residents feel the same way. This year’s ballot for the Lecompton City Council was pretty thin. One person did file for mayor, but there was only one candidate for two spots on the City Council. Eventually, a couple of folks did make a few homemade signs and start write-in campaigns so that the final spot was decided by the voters rather than appointed by the council. But the lack of interest was noticeable and of concern to some. “Honestly, nobody probably really wants the job,� said Mark Tunstall, who was elected mayor last week with a total of 72 votes. “But it is a job somebody has to take an interest in for the good of the community.� Tunstall comes to the position after having served several terms as a City Council member. He does have dreams for the town — a McDonald’s or a Wendy’s would be nice, he said — but really he would settle for folks just becoming more involved. “We ask for public opinion,� Tunstall said. “We put up notices on the bulletin board down at the park, but just getting people to attend

Most people in OECD countries spend 23 minutes a day shopping, with the French spending the most (32 minutes) and the Koreans the least (13 minutes). � The value of unpaid work is considerable — about onethird of GDP in OECD countries, ranging from a low of 19 percent in Korea to a high of 53 percent in Portugal — making an important contribution to the well-being of all OECD societies. As for the United States? We’re fat, but generous, the OECD says: � 34 percent of Americans are obese, compared with the OECD average of 17 percent. � 60 percent of Americans volunteer their time and money to help strangers, the highest percentage in the world.

meetings can be frustrating. I just wish people would come here and let us know what they’re thinking before we make decisions. Otherwise, we just do what we think is best.� ���

For a lot of years now, figuring out what is best for Lecompton has involved Paslay’s voice. Paslay said for the most part he has been pleased with what he and council members have come up with. During his tenure, all the side streets have been converted from gravel to chip and seal. The playground equipment at the city park has been upgraded. Land has been annexed to give the city — which abuts the Kansas River and the Douglas County line — room to grow. None of it is splashy, but that’s fine with Paslay. “We try to keep it as simple as we can here,� he said. Probably the biggest project in recent times has been a $1.1 million overhaul of the city’s water system. It has involved a new water tower

and equipment to deal with the city’s longtime problem of hard water. Paslay and the council were successful in securing grant money for part of the project, but it certainly has involved a signif icant increase in water rates, too. Those increases also have sparked plenty of public comment. That’s the way it usually works. Feedback is plentiful once the decision has been made. “I think Roy has done a good job for us,� said Tunstall, the newly elected mayor. “But he has taken a lot of grief over the years. It is pretty clear the job is not a popularity contest.� But that is OK with Paslay. He says he never dwells on any of the criticism. “We probably lost a few friends through the years,� Paslay says. “But I know we made a lot of new ones.� Not bad pay for a job so few people want.

Republican reportedly sends offensive Obama email


Road work planned for this week Lawrence ● The city will begin the first phase of overlay projects this week. Temporary single lane closures should be expected in these areas but traffic will most likely be able to flow through the area. For a map of the overlay projects go to publicworks/docs/2011_co mprehensive_Street_ maintenance_11x17.pdf. ● City maintenance crews are working on a microsurfacing program. Roads throughout the city will be repaved and resurfaced. Lane reductions and possible street closures may occur during the process. To find out what streets the city has targeted, visit the city’s website at ● On Kasold Drive between Clinton Parkway and 31st Street, both directions of traffic have moved to the southbound lanes of Kasold. Each direction is narrowed to one lane as crews work to rebuild the roadway. Access from side streets is right-turn only. The project is expected to last for several months. ● From 7 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. weekdays, Indiana Street will have no parking and is closed to through traffic from Sixth Street to Eighth Street and Third Street to Sixth Street. ● 16th Street from Massachusetts to New Hampshire streets is closed to through traffic as crews work on a sanitary sewer project. Intermittent closures will occur on 15th Street from Massachusetts to New Hampshire streets.

County vying for detention center WELLINGTON (AP) — Sumner County in south-central Kansas has been trying to win a contract for a federal immigrant detention facility. Sumner County Sheriff Gerald Gilkey said he received a letter from the department of Immigrations and Customs Enforcement saying it was looking for a regional civil detention facility to house illegal immigrants while their status is being evaluated. Gilkey told The Wellington News that ICE wants to have a stand-alone facility that would hold up to about 400 people. He said the department now uses a variety of facilities, including county jails, to hold detainees. ICE is in the selection process and has not said when a selection would be made. Those closest to the project say it can be nothing but beneficial. If the facility is built, federal money would pay off bonds created to build it. Sumner County also could include a buy-out clause stating that if the contract was pulled before the building was paid off, the government would pay the remainder of the building fees. The County would see a possible contract worth $11 to $12 million. That money would cover the needs of those in the facility, the payroll and benefits for those running facility, and the utilities and building itself.

Douglas County ● On Monday, Douglas County plans to close down County Road 460 and County Road 650N at the junction of U.S. Highway 59 for asphalt paving work.

LOS ANGELES — A Southern California Republican Party official was under fire Saturday after allegations she sent an email that included an altered photo depicting President Barack Obama as an ape. An email reportedly sent by party central committee member Marilyn Davenport shows an image, posed like a family

portrait, of chimpanzee parents and child, with Obama’s face artificially superimposed on the child. Text beneath the photo reads, “Now you know why no birth certificate.” Davenport said she would provide a written statement with her response, but several hours later she had not issued one. The alternative newspa-

per OC Weekly first reported the story, and was told by Davenport that the email was “just an Internet joke.” She also asked the Weekly, “You’re not going to make a big deal about this are you?” Republican Party of Orange County Chairman Scott Baugh said Saturday he wants an ethics investigation into the incident.

At least 21 killed in storms By Tom Breen and Phillip Rawls Associated Press Writers

R A L E I G H , N . C . — A brutal spring storm raged across North Carolina on Saturday, flattening businesses, flipping cars and destroying homes, leaving at least four dead from a system already blamed for killing 17 people in four states. The death toll was likely to rise. North Carolina Gov. Beverly Perdue said there were fatalities in four counties but would not confirm an exact number, saying officials wanted to wait until this morning. Earlier, officials in Raleigh said more than one person died in the capital city in Wake County, one of the counties Perdue mentioned. Urban search and rescue teams were also looking for residents who might be trapped in damaged buildings. Perdue said the 62 tornadoes were the most since March 1984, when a storm system spawned 22 twisters in the Carolinas, killing 57 people — 42 in North Carolina — and injuring hundreds. This year’s spring storm was easily the deadliest of the season, but there were stories of survival, too. In South Carolina, a church with six people inside collapsed after it was hit by a tornado, but somehow no one was injured. And in Sanford, N.C., the manager of a Lowe’s hardware store was credited with saving more than 100 workers and employees by ushering them to the back of the store, which acted as a makeshift shelter as the weather rolled in. The storms began in Oklahoma on Thursday, then roared through Arkansas, Mississippi, Alabama and Georgia. Seven people each were killed in Arkansas and Alabama, which was hit a day earlier. A father, his son and his daughter were killed near Montgomery; a mother and her two teenage sons died in a mobile home in the southwest part of the state, and the storm claimed the life of an

ONLY STAIRS AND FLOWERS REMAIN Saturday after severe winds tore a mobile home off its lot late Friday night in Boone’s Chapel, Ala., in Autauga County. Vicious storms and howling winds smacked the Deep South, killing at least seven people in Alabama, including three family members whose homes were tossed into nearby woods. elderly man whose trailer was tossed nearly a quarter of a mile across a state highway. Alabama Gov. Robert Bentley visited some of the devastated areas and declared the entire state a disaster. Things looked similar in North Carolina. Roofs were ripped off stores, trees were plucked out of the ground and “scores” of homes were damaged, emergency management director Doug Hoell said. Police in Raleigh evacuated residents at a mobile park, and emergency crews went door-to-door looking for people injured or trapped by the storm that flipped mobile homes from one side of the street to the other. Guillermo Villela, 34, said he saw two young children at the park trapped under fallen trees. “I see a lot of disaster. It’s bad,” Villela said. In the town of Sanford in central North Carolina, what could have been a deadly catastrophe was averted when a Lowe’s manager saw the approaching storm. The front of Lowe’s was flattened by the storm, with cars in the parking lot tossed around and flipped on their roofs. “It was really just a bad scene,” said Jeff Blocker,

Lowe’s regional vice president for eastern North Carolina. “You’re just amazed that no one was injured.” Blocker credits his store manager and the other 40 to 50 employees in the store at the time with getting the as many as 70 customers safely to the rear.

W A S H I N G T O N — President Barack Obama is promoting his new deficit-reduction plan by drawing sharp contrasts with a House Republican budget that he says offers a vision that “is wrong for America.” In his weekly radio and Internet address Saturday, Obama contended that Republicans want to dismantle venerable safety net programs and cut taxes for the wealthy at the expense of students paying for college and older adults relying on Medicare. “To restore fiscal responsibility, we all need to share in the sacrifice — but we don’t have to sacrifice the America we believe in,” Obama said. The criticism echoed his speech Wednesday in which he outlined a $4 trillion deficit-reduction plan over 12 years. It’s a goal, he said, that he can achieve through spending cuts, changes in government health care programs and tax increases. Obama’s message represents his clearest attempt to place ideological distance with Republicans after months spent negotiating a compromise six-month spending bill that trimmed more than $38 billion from the government. Obama plans to continue his plan’s pitch throughout the upcoming week, holding town halls in Northern Virginia Tuesday and in Palo Alto, Calif., and Reno, Nev., later in the week. While Obama tries to cast the debate in his own terms, his attention to fiscal discipline signals a watershed in national politics. After two years devoted to priming an anemic economy with new spending and passing an overhaul of health care, Congress and the White House are beginning a debate about how to tame long-term deficits and a crushing debt of more than $14 trillion.

Odd work schedules pose health risk By Randolph E. Schmid Associated Press Writer

WASHINGTON — Reports of sleeping air traff ic controllers highlight a longknown and often ignored hazard: Workers on night shifts can have trouble concentrating and even staying awake. “Government off icials haven’t recognized that people routinely fall asleep at night when they’re doing shift work,” said Dr. Charles HEALTH Czeisler, chief of sleep medicine at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston. Czeisler said studies show that 30 percent to 50 p e r c e n t o f n i g h t - s h i ft wo r k e r s r e p o r t f a l l i n g asleep at least once a week while on the job. So the notion that this has happened only a few times among the thousands of controllers “is preposter-

BRIEFLY Election mostly peaceful, but kids vote KAYAWA, NIGERIA — Nigerians voted for president in an election Saturday many hoped would show Africa’s most populous nation could hold a credible poll without the violence and rigging that marred previous ones, though children cast ballots and party officials helped others press their inked fingers to paper. Despite widespread security concerns after bombs hit a votecounting center and a polling station during last weekend’s legislative elections, voting in the oil-rich country was largely peaceful Saturday though a police officer was fatally shot in the volatile northeast. Nigerians must be 18 in order to cast ballots, but election observers said that reports of underage voters had been isolated.

Gas at $4 in nation’s capital, 5 states NEW YORK — Drivers in Washington on Saturday joined motorists in five states who are paying more than $4 per gallon for gasoline. The average price for gas in New York could top $4 by early next week. Hawaii, Alaska, California, Illinois and Connecticut already have pump prices above that mark, according to AAA’s Daily Fuel Gauge. Hawaii has the highest price in the U.S. at $4.47 per gallon. The national average for gas has increased for 25 straight days, and is now $3.82 per gallon.

Nicolas Cage arrested in New Orleans NEW ORLEANS — Actor Nicolas Cage was arrested after he got drunk in the city’s French Quarter and argued in the street with his wife over whether a house they were in front of was theirs, police said Saturday. The couple was in front of a home that Cage insisted they were renting, police said. When she said it wasn’t theirs, Cage grabbed her arm, according to a police news release. Cage started hitting vehicles and tried to get into a taxi, police said. An officer saw that Cage was drunk and told him to get out of the cab. Cage then started yelling at the officer. Cage was booked on charges of domestic abuse battery, disturbing the peace and public drunkenness. He was released on $11,000 bond Saturday.

ous,” he said in a telephone interview. In a sign of growing awareness of the problem, the Federal Aviation Administration said Saturday it was changing air traffic controllers’ work schedules most likely to cause fatigue. The announcement comes after the agency disclosed another incident in which a controller fell asleep while on duty early Saturday morning at a busy Miami regional facility. According to a preliminary review, there was no impact to flight operations, the FAA said. Czeisler said the potential danger isn’t limited to air traffic controllers, but can apply to truck and bus drivers, airline pilots and those in the maritime industry. Who else? Factory workers, police, f iref ighters, emergency workers, nurses and doctors, cooks, hotel employees, people in the media and others on night or changing shifts. “We live in a very sleepdeprived society where many people are burning the can-

dle at both ends,” Czeisler said. He said that a half-century ago, just 2 percent of people slept six hours or less per night; today it’s 28 percent. Dr. William Fishbein, a neuroscientist at the City University of New York, said that when people work odd shifts “it mucks up their biological rhythms.” Hormones are synchronized with the wake-sleep cycle. When people change shifts, the brain never knows when it’s supposed to be asleep, so this affects how people function. People who change shifts every few days are going to have all kinds of problems related to memory and learning, Fishbein said. This kind of schedule especially affects what he called relational memories, which involve the ability to understand how one thing is related to another. In addition to drowsiness and inability to concentrate, people working night shifts are more subject to chronic intestinal and heart diseases

and have been shown to have a higher incidence of some forms of cancer. The World Health Organization has classified shift work as a probable carcinogen. “We have 500 cable channels, we take work home with us on our Blackberrys and computers, both work and entertainment options are available 24 hours a day seven days a week and there is much more and brighter light exposure in our homes in evenings, which affects hormones involved in sleep, Czeisler said. “And we are still trying to get up with the chickens because our work hours are starting earlier and earlier,” he said. Today, controllers are at the center of the firestorm, with recent reports that several planes couldn’t contact airport towers for assistance in landing. Members of Congress are responding to a worried public, controllers have been suspended and the head of the government’s air traffic control system has resigned.

More shelling in last city held by rebels in western Libya missing as the anti-Gadhafi forces sought to push toward the strategic oil town of Brega, according to Mohammed Idris, a hospital supervisor in the nearby city of Ajdabiya. The battle took place on a road halfway between Ajdabiya and Brega. Frustration was growing among residents in Misrata, where Gadhafi’s troops have intensified their long siege of the city in recent days. The doctor sharply criticized NATO for failing to break the assault with its month-old campaign of airstrikes. “We have not seen any protection of civilians,” the doctor said. “NATO airstrikes are not enough, and the proof is that there are civilians killed every day here,” he said. The theme was echoed in the rebel stronghold of Benghazi, where spokesman Abdel-Hafidh Ghoga told a news conference: “There’s no more room for hesitation or for not standing with deter-

AJDABIYA , L IBYA — Moammar Gadhafi’s forces poured rocket fire after dawn Saturday into Misrata, the only western city still in rebel hands, and weary residents who have endured more than a month of fighting angrily lashed out at NATO for failing to halt the deadly assault. Five civilians were killed in a 30-minute barrage of shelling that heavily damaged a factory for dairy products and sent up a thick column of black smoke, a doctor said. A human rights group has accused the Gadhafi regime of using cluster bombs in Misrata — munitions that can cause indiscriminate casualties and have been banned by most countries. The Libyan government and military denied the charge. In eastern Libya, fierce fighting left seven rebels dead, 27 wounded and four

mination against what is happening in Misrata and other Libyan cities, because the destruction that Moammar Gadhafi is causing in Libyan cities is great and extensive.” Rebel fighters in eastern Libya were less critical of NATO. Mustafa Abdul-Jalil, head of the rebels’ National Transitional Council, said this week that without the airstrikes, even Benghazi, Libya’s second-largest city and the rebels’ main stronghold, would be in “complete danger.” The Misrata doctor said Gadhafi’s forces are taking shelter in residential areas that civilians had fled, apparently confident that NATO won’t risk attacking them there. But the troops have so far been unable to fully occupy the city of 300,000 people, he said, so instead they are targeting sites such as the dairy plant or the port to prevent the arrival of humanitarian aid.

Taliban sleeper agent kills 10 at base KABUL , A FGHANISTAN — Like hundreds of thousands of Afghan men, he volunteered in the national army, ran drills in the mud, carried an automatic rifle, and worked along-

On Saturday, he walked into a meeting of NATO trainers and Afghan troops at Forward Operating Base Gamberi in the eastern province of Laghman and detonated a vest of explosives hidden underneath his uniform. Five NATO troopers, four Afghan soldiers and an interpreter were killed in the deadliest sleeper agent assault. Four Afghan soldiers and three interpreters were wounded in Saturday’s attack. The Taliban claimed responsibility for the bombing and said the soldier was a sleeper agent who joined the army a month ago, a contention confirmed by an Afghan army official.

KBA questions Questions about the operation and leadership of the Kansas Bioscience Authority should be cleared up as soon as possible.


om Thornton’s sudden resignation as president and CEO of the Kansas Bioscience Authority is sure to generate much fingerpointing in an effort to blame this or that person for Thornton’s departure. The one true fact is that the KBA is a unique, visionary creation of the Kansas Legislature, and it has the potential to play a tremendous role in the Kansas economy. Whether Thornton was the right man to lead this effort is debatable. Whether he and/or board members engaged in questionable policies and actions is up in the air. KBA Chairman John Carlin is quick to say Thornton and board members were responsible for getting the National Bio and Agro-Defense Facility located at Manhattan and Kansas State University. This is a giant overstatement. Also, there is unanimity among many with whom Thornton worked that his manner often was offensive, arrogant and uncommunicative. At the request of Gov. Sam Brownback, KBA officials have contracted with the accounting firm of BKD to perform a forensic audit in order to try to prove there have not been any questionable fiscal actions by Thornton or board members. This is the same firm that handled the recent audit of the Kansas University athletic department ticket scam. Some question whether the BKD action at LI was a true audit or a mere review. Many observers also believe the public should know whether KBA placed a cap on the fee BKD would receive, which could limit the scope of the audit. They also are interested in the identity of the lead auditor and his or her past experience. Many supporters of Thornton have said they believe the KBA/Thornton question was fueled by Brownback, who wanted to take control of the body. Maybe some of those making this charge were aware of how former Gov. Kathleen Sebelius did, indeed, try to take over the KU Hospital board and how she injected herself into the KBA board. Brownback makes it clear he has no desire to control the KBA but he does say he wants to make sure there is proper stewardship of state taxpayer dollars. Apparently, there are sufficient questions relative to this that Johnson County officials have issued subpoenas to individuals seeking more information about possible questionable actions. Thornton, Carlin and board members have handed out millions of dollars, which is one way to win friends and admirers. Also, it’s almost guaranteed to win defenders. The KBA, the authority itself is great for the state, but there appears to be reason to question Thornton’s leadership, as well as board actions and the defense of Thornton by former Gov. Carlin. In order to protect the KBA and not handicap what this authority can do for the state, this unfortunate situation should be clear ups as soon as possible.

Obama seems paralyzed by caution Say what you wish about Barack Obama, you have to acknowledge that the man displayed an exquisite sense of timing four years ago. He was a (very) junior senator then, with a halfterm of service in the Capitol. The leading voices in the Democratic Party — Hillary Clinton, Gen. Wesley Clark, Joseph R.

Committee Chairman Paul Ryan wants to conduct rather than on the social contract the president wants to preserve. In his glory days, Newt Gingrich never approximated the power Boehner has amassed in only three months. Other powerful House speakers, like Joe Cannon and Thomas Brackett Reed (known as “Czar Reed” when the phrase had real meaning, in part because there was a real czar in Russia), held sway over their chambers, but no one thought that Speaker Reed was more powerful than President William McKinley or that Speaker Cannon was more powerful than President Theodore Roosevelt.

Often it is prudent — that word again — to hold back, to let things develop. It is especially useful to hold back when your rivals are self-destructing, which was a smart strategy for Obama in the earliest days of his presidency. But modern Republicans have made perhaps the soundest and sturdiest recovery in history. They weren’t in as big a hole in 2009 as they were in 1965, after the Goldwater debacle, to be sure, but they’ve climbed out with remarkable speed and skill, which is why the Obama conundrum is so perplexing and his apparent dispassion so puzzling.



From the Lawrence Daily Journal-World for April 17, 1911: YEARS “Dozens of freak AGO occurrences are IN 1911 reported from all sections of town (from the April 12 tornado). At the residence of J. T. Curbey, 608 Ky. street, a razor is embedded in the siding. It was carried from the home of some neighbor, opened, and the blade firmly planted in the pine boards. A window sash on one of the upper floors of the southeast corner of the Fraternal Aid building was lifted bodily from its frame and carried in a circle around the building. It was dropped through the double doors on the north front of the building.”

Conservative politicians tied to biggest lies “If you want an abortion, you go to Planned Parenthood. And that’s well over 90 percent of what Planned Parenthood does.” — Sen. Jon Kyl, R-Ariz., April 8, 2011

“(The statistic Kyl used) was not intended to be a factual statement ...” — Statement from Kyl’s office to CNN, later that day Actually, about 3 percent of Planned Parenthood’s services are abortion-related. The overwhelming majority of the organization’s work involves cancer screenings, contraception and treatment for sexually transmitted diseases. Granted, the 3 percent figure is self-reported and Politifact, the nonpartisan, Pulitzer Prize-winning fact-checking website, suggests it could nudge higher depending on how you crunch the numbers. But it also rules that Kyl “vastly overstated” the organization’s involvement in abortions. In other words, he lied. Conservatives seem to do that an awful lot. No, the capacity for mendacity is not exclusive to any party or ideology. Yes, Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and Harry Reid

Leonard Pitts Jr.

The end justifies any means. So, as was the case with Jon Kyl, if you can’t prove your point with the facts at hand, make up some facts and prove it with those.” have all, at one point or another, been at variance with the truth. But when it comes to serial lying, to the biggest, most brazen, most audacious lies, the lies repeated ad nauseam until people mistake them for truth, when it comes to the most absolute contempt for the facts and for the necessity of honest debate, it’s not even close. Conservatives have no equal.

Consider: Politifact has six categories for judging veracity. A statement is either true, mostly true, half true, barely true, false, or “Pants On Fire,” after the old schoolyard taunt that begins “Liar! Liar!” Politifact uses this designation for statements that are not only untrue but also make some “ridiculous claim.” I reviewed 100 such statements on Politifact’s website. By my count, of the 70 that originated with an identifiable individual or group (as opposed to a chain email or miscellaneous source), 61 were from the political right. That includes Rush Limbaugh saying President Obama is going to take away your right to fish, Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer saying beheaded bodies are being found in the desert, Sarah Palin claiming death panels will stalk the elderly — 90 percent of the most audacious lies coming from conservatives. And that word is used advisedly here. There is little that is truly conservative about what we are seeing. No, this is extremism, true believers so rigidly committed to their ideological crusades that

they feel justified in vandalizing reason and sacrificing integrity in furtherance of their cause. The end justifies any means. So, as was the case with Jon Kyl, if you can’t prove your point with the facts at hand, make up some facts and prove it with those. It says much about the intellectual state of what passes for conservatism and the intellectual state of the union itself that this sort of behavior has become business as usual, just another day in the Zeitgeist. This cannot end well. To continue down this path is to carve out a future of intellectual incoherence and international irrelevance, to doom ourselves to yet more of a fractured political discourse that is loud, ignorant and incapable of reason, much less resolution. And maybe Sen. Kyl’s claim was “not intended to be a factual statement,” but just so you know? Mine is. — Leonard Pitts Jr., winner of the 2004 Pulitzer Prize for commentary, is a columnist for the Miami Herald. He chats with readers from noon to 1 p.m. CDT each Wednesday on

Pompeo asks Congress to act on Kapaun honor WICHITA — A Kansas congressman is pushing his House colleagues to waive regulations to approve the Medal of Honor for an Army chaplain who died in a prison camp during the Korean War. Rep. Mike Pompeo, a Wichita Republican representing the 4th District, asked the House Armed Services Committee this week to approve legislation waiving the rules to award the Medal of Honor to the Rev. Emil Kapaun, a captain who died in May 1951 in a prisoner of war camp. “Chaplain Kapaun repeatedly risked his own life to save hundreds of fellow Americans,” Pompeo told the committee. “His extraordinary courage and leadership inspired thousands of prisoners to survive hellish conditions and resist Chinese indoctrination. His actions reflect great credit upon himself, the 1st Cavalry Division and the United States Army.” Federal law restricts the awarding of the Medal of Honor to two years from the time of the qualifying military action. If Congress approves the legislation waiving the time restriction, Defense Secretary Robert Gates, a native of Kansas, could recommend to President Barack Obama that Kapaun receive the medal.

FREE STATE SHORTSTOP COLIN TOALSON DIVES FOR A BALL during Free State’s game against Rogers (Ark.) High. The Firebirds rallied for a 7-6 victory on Saturday at Hoglund Ballpark.

Slow start dooms LHS to 5-3 setback By Clark Goble Journal-World Sports Writer

Lawrence High and Blue Springs (Mo.) sent their senior aces to the mound for Saturday’s game in the River City Baseball Festival at Kansas University’s Hoglund Ballpark. The Wildcats’ Jacob Woods outdueled the Lions’ Alex Laughlin, propelling his team to a 5-3 victory. Woods used his fastball in the first four innings to get ahead in counts, forcing the Lions (5-5) to chase pitches late in at-bats. “The difference in the game was that they had competitive at-bats early,” Lawrence High coach Brad Stoll said. “We didn’t.” In those first four innings, Woods walked three Lions, but struck out four and allowed just two hits. The Wildcats’ lineup provided some run support,

scoring a run in the second and fourth innings. By the time the Lions got the bats going, the deficit was too much. The Wildcats added three in the top of the fifth inning, paced by a two-RBI triple by junior Nick Gullotta. Troy Willoughby’s RBI single gave the Lions their first run in the bottom of the fifth inning. CJ Roush’s two-RBI triple in the bottom of the sixth pulled the Lions within two, but they couldn’t muster a rally in the seventh. Stoll said he was pleased that his team battled back, but disappointed with the Lions’ approach in the first four innings. “From about the fifth inning on, we hooked it up,” Stoll said. “But, unfortunately, baseball’s a seven-inning game.” Roush, who finished 2-for-3 with a double and a triple, said he

On Friday night, a few sloppy plays in the field proved of little consequence in a rout by Free State High’s baseball team. On Saturday, though, a few more defensive miscues were almost the Firebirds’ undoing. FSHS (8-1) rebounded from four errors that led to f ive unearned runs and walked off with a 7-6 victory over Rogers (Ark.) on Saturday at Hoglund Ballpark. “It shows the mark of a good team to find a way to win,” FSHS coach Mike Hill said. “I think a better team doesn’t put itself in that situation, and that’s what we’re striving to become.” Down 6-5 in the bottom of the seventh, the Firebirds sure found a way. With one out, speedy left fielder Tim Lewis — who was 3-for-3

on the day — roped a single to center. Next up was Montana Samuels, who stepped to the plate looking to put a few rough at-bats and his 0-for-3 afternoon behind him. Samuels unloaded on an inside fastball, crushing it off the top of the wall in left field — nearly putting it over — to score Lewis from first and tie the game. “What I was most pleased with is that he didn’t take that last plate appearance up there with him and got it done,” Hill said. “He’s a fine hitter.” Two batters later, Anthony Miele slapped one under third baseman Manny Garcia’s glove, allowing pinch-runner Campbell Fritzel to score the game-winning run. “It’s important for us to just Please see FIREBIRDS, page 5B

College basketball recruiting notes ... Kansas University freshman Josh Selby’s decision to enter the 2011 NBA Draft may have helped the Jayhawks in the Trevor Lacey recruiting sweepstakes, recruiting analyst Jerry Meyer says. Lacey, a high-scoring, deadly shooting 6foot-3, 200-pound combo guard from Huntsville (Ala.) Butler High, has a final list of KU, Alabama, Auburn, Kentucky, UConn and North Carolina State, which is now led by former Alabama coach Mark Gottfried. “The (KU) roster now has a gaping void at the shooting guard position and Lacey would fill that need nicely,” Meyer wrote. “He has a superb basketball IQ , is physically ready and is an outstanding long-distance shooting threat off the catch. “There is no doubt that instant playing time is a major factor in Lacey's decision, but Kansas faces heavy competition for Lacey. Alabama — Lacey’s ‘backyard’ school — is in need of shooters and has available playing time. Kentucky has developed a strong relationship with Lacey, Please see RECRUITING, page 3B

Royals manager Ned Yost said. “They shut the door on everything. Collins has three pitches he can use to get big league hitters out. Jeffress can overpower you. And Crow’s been dynamite. It was a great job pitching-wise all the way around.” O’Sullivan threw five shutout innings, allowing five hits and two walks, striking out four.

Kyle Busch wins a wild one at Talladega T A L L A D E G A , A L A . ( AP ) — Kyle Busch won under a yellow flag in a wild finish Saturday, taking the Nationwide race at Talladega Superspeedway when the last of 10 crashes sent Mike Wallace’s car flipping upside down. Busch captured his fourth win in seven Nationwide races — and 47th of his career — on a day when tandem racing produced a series-

record 56 lead changes, 11 cautions and two red flags to clean up all the debris. Even Busch got caught up in the mayhem. He spun out in the biggest crash of the day, a 21-car melee just 28 laps from the scheduled finish of the Aaron’s 312. Busch drove his battered Toyota onto pit road and figured he was

done for the day. Instead, his crew patched up the damage, yanked off the pieces they couldn’t fix and sent him back onto the track without losing a lap. He hooked with Joey Logano in a powerful duo, somehow finding a narrow gap to get past leader Trevor Bayne and his pusher, Carl Edwards, on the second attempt at a green-white-checkered finish.

NORMAN, OKLA. — Bob Stoops paused at the door to the Switzer Center auditorium/meeting room Tuesday, turning back to members of the media assembled for the twice-weekly interview opportunity during Oklahoma spring training. “I wanted to tell you that the offensive line looks significantly better than a year ago,” the Sooners’ coach unexpectedly offered to those awaiting post-practice player interviews. “They’ve made a big jump. That’s a good tidbit there.” It is. And Stoops did not back off that assessment during a Thursday afternoon conversation in his Switzer Center office. In fact, he took it up a notch when discussing the overall prospects for an improved running game next season. “I’ve been incredibly pleased with our offensive line — tight ends, fullbacks — and what we’ve been doing running the football this spring,” he said. “We’re just much sharper in where we are, what we’re doing, our blocking technique — everything. “It’s really improved us. I’m excited. It’s obvious to me that we’re going to be better running the ball.” From my seat in the box, the lack of a consistently productive running attack that couldn’t get the got-to-have-them yards (see Texas A&M) was the one factor that kept the Sooners from elite status last season. Rabid OU fans view breakaway scatback Roy Finch as The Answer. Personally, I don’t see Finch — who has some durability questions — as an every-down back. He doesn’t have to be. Stoops said Finch and Brennan Clay have been “solid” this spring, but really got enthused over rehabbed Jonathan Miller and in-early freshman Brandon Williams. “He’s really been exciting,” Stoops said of Williams, the five-star recruit. “You talk about a guy that has another gear to turn the corner and who hits the hole hard. He has a chance to be really good.” When all is said and written come August, the Sooners should be firmly entrenched as college football’s consensus No. 1 approaching their Sept. 3 kickoff against Tulsa. Solid returning nuclei on both sides of the ball from a 12-2 Fiesta Bowl-championship team add credence to that line of thought — as do a Heisman Trophy candidate at quarterback (Landry Jones), an All-American receiver (Ryan Broyles), the leader in tackles and verbosity (LB Travis Lewis) and the advancement in proficiency of the best freshman class in recent memory, soon to be sophomores. But Stoops and others quickly note there’s more to be done. “We’re optimistic,” Stoops said. “But there’s a lot of work to be done. What kind of summer you have usually dictates what kind of team you have.” Still, there appears to be less concern about some key issues now than when spring training began. That includes those about a defense that lost maybe the best defensive end of the Stoops era (Jeremy Beal), safeties Quinton Carter and Jonathan Nelson and (for the time being) cornerback Jamell Fleming. Not to worry, the loquacious Lewis shrugged. “This is Oklahoma,” he said. “Our coaches do a great job of recruiting. We restock with athletes and keep it rolling.”

Missouri rallies past KU ——

Tigers win, 3-2, on RBI single in bottom of ninth J-W Staff Reports

COLUMBIA , M O. — Missouri right fielder Blake Brown’s RBI single to right field in the bottom of the ninth lifted the Tigers to a 3-2 victory over Kansas University on Saturday afternoon to even the teams’ Big 12 baseball series at Taylor Stadium. The outcome snapped a three-game winning streak for KU (17-18 overall, 7-7 Big 12). MU ended a nine-game losing streak and six-game skid against Kansas in improving to 14-21 and 2-8. With the score tied at 2, Brandon Champagne led off the ninth with a single to right and moved to second on a sacrifice. That set up Brown’s heroics. The junior lined a 20 pitch into right field in front of Casey Lytle to score Champagne with the winning run. It was the first loss of the season for KU closer Colton Murray and marked the third time in the last three visits to Columbia that the Jayhawks have lost in walk-off fashion. On the strength of a Zac Elgie’s RBI double in the first and an RBI groundout in the third, Kansas built a 2-0 lead after three innings. KU starting pitcher Tanner Poppe was effectively wild through four, allowing just one hit. However, the Tigers broke out in the fifth. After Poppe retired the leadoff man, Champagne collected a oneout single, and Eric Garcia doubled to right field. Poppe retired Brown on a groundout to third, but a wild pitch and an RBI single by Jonah Schmidt tied the score at 2. The sophomore righty departed after allowing two runs on four hits with five walks and three strikeouts 2 over 4 ⁄ 3 innings. It was Poppe’s shortest start of the season. The Jayhawks will look to win their first three-game series in Columbia since 1983 when the teams meet for the rubber game of the threegame set at 1 p.m. today.

Kansas softball falls ————

Big inning lifts Bears to 9-3 victory By Matt Tait

One out away from escaping Saturday’s second inning against No. 15 Baylor having surrendered just one run, Kansas University’s softball team quickly found itself in one heck of a hole after an error led to a big inning for the Bears. Instead of taking a one-run lead into the bottom of the second, the Bears led by six, a number that wound up being the difference during BU’s 9-3 victory at Arrocha Ballpark. “The last couple games we’ve struggled with bouncing back,” KU coach Megan Smith said after her team fell to 28-16 overall and 1-12 in Big 12 play. “If something bad happens or a call doesn’t go our way, instead of bearing down and really focusing on getting the next kid, we let it snowball a little bit.” That was definitely the case Saturday. Starting pitcher Alex Jones, one of the Jayhawks’ top hurlers a season ago, made her second start in three games — a win in KU’s 9-5 victory against Texas Tech last Wednesday was the other — and looked poised to deliver another solid showing. But an error on shortstop Ashley Newman allowed Baylor to touch Jones for six runs on f ive hits — only one was earned — and that sent the sophomore packing after 1 2⁄3 innings. The tone-setting second inning was disastrous for the Jayhawks and huge for Baylor. “That was important,” BU coach Glenn Moore said. “It gave us an opportunity to relax and put some pressure on them.” Though the Jayhawks showed some fight in the late innings, it wasn’t until the f ifth that they seemed to recover from the early blow. With BU’s lead up to 7-0, KU received a lift from soph-


and if Brandon Knight leaves school, Lacey could very well end up in Lexington,” Meyer added. The No. 34-rated Lacey, who averaged 31.4 points a game last season, was scheduled to be on Alabama’s campus this weekend. He has said he would like to fit in a recruiting trip to KU in coming weeks, before the May 18 end of the spring recruiting period. “It (visit to KU) is definitely going to happen before I make my decision. I’ve seen the reports that I’m favoring a couple of schools, but that isn’t true,” Lacey told before the Alabama visit. “My interest in Kansas is serious. Coach (Bill) Self is a great coach, Kansas is a winning program and they’ve got playing time available for me. A few guys are graduating and the Morris twins are leaving early, so I could step in and play right away. Kansas is a great program and something I’m seriously considering.” Lacey and Ronald Steele are the only two players in Alabama prep history to win two Mr. Basketball awards from the Alabama Sports Writers Association.

Chone Figgins was charged with an error when Escobar’s sharply hit grounder skipped over his glove. With two outs, Chris Getz singled and Gordon delivered a two-run double over the head of center fielder Ryan Langerhans. Billy Butler followed with an RBI single for a 5-0 lead. Gordon added a single in the eighth and came around on Aviles’ two-run double off Brandon League. Collins threw a shutout inning, Jeffress threw two scoreless innings and Aaron Crow worked a 1-2-3 ninth. “The bullpen’s been phenomenal,” said O’Sullivan. “It’s been a come-in-and-lockthe-door deal. They’ve been great.”

omore outf ielder Maggie Hull, who ripped a two-run home run to right field to cut the Bears’ lead to 7-2. The homer was Hull’s seventh of the season; not bad for

a player who was used primarily as a slap-hitter last year. In the offseason, however, Smith decided to allow the former Free State High standout to swing away, and Hull has been ripping the cover off of the ball ever since. During the fall, she was among the team’s leaders in most power categories. This spring, she leads the team in RBIs (43), is second in batting average (.351) and fourth in home runs. “She’s stepped up and been phenomenal at the plate hitting,” Smith said of Hull. “She also has become an unbelievable outfielder. The strides she’s made in the outfield are huge. We’re really proud of her. She continues to get up there and attack.” Hull said her success could be attributed to one thing — having fun. “The bottom line is I’m gonna do whatever the coaches ask me to do,” she said. “The fact that they’re putting me in that position, where I can score some runs, that’s natural for me, and I love doing it. But at the end of the day it’s all about my team.” The Jayhawks and Bears will conclude the series at noon today.

Don’t Wait, Participate

the only player to compete on three state title teams. Butler coach Jack Doss told The Birmingham News he’s not expecting a Lacey decision anytime soon. It’s been speculated that Lacey may want to wait until after the April 24 deadline for college underclassmen to enter the NBA Draft. “We don’t talk much about recruiting,” Doss told the News. “I coached his dad and taught his mom. He’s got plenty of people who can help him.” The Birmingham paper indicated Alabama and Kentucky are believed Lacey’s favorites. The News indicated that Alabama A&M, which is looking for a new coach, might become a contender if coach Doss is hired at that school. ●

Daniels visits Duke: No. 9rated DeAndre Daniels, a 6-8 senior from IMG Academy in Bradenton, Fla., was slated to be on Duke’s campus this weekend. He’s also considering KU, Kentucky, Texas and Oregon. “It’s still wide-open. He has no favorite,” IMG director of basketball Andy Borman told the Lexington Herald-Leader. Borman said he expected Daniels to make a college choice sometime after the visit to Duke. “How soon after that, I don't know," he told the Herald-Leader.

FREE STATE’S PRESTON SCHENCK SCORES A RUN during Free State’s game against Rogers (Ark.) High on Saturday at Hoglund Ballpark. The Firebirds won, 7-6.


stay focused and do what we do,” Samuels said. After surrendering four unearned runs early Friday, the Firebirds found themselves down 4-0 after three third-inning errors. “Errors are a part of the game,” junior pitcher Trent Johnson said. “You can get mad about them and let them affect you and make another one, or you can move on.” For his part, Johnson

worked around the miscues well. In only his second start of the year, Johnson worked the first 61⁄3 innings while allowing four hits, six runs (only one earned) and striking out seven. “He was great,” Hill said. “He threw really well … he was deserving of a complete game, if not a shutout.” While Johnson settled in on the mound, FSHS rallied for three runs in the second on a sacrifice fly from Colin Toalson and a two-RBI single by Preston Schenck. The Firebirds continued to chip away at the deficit, as Lewis slapped an RBI single

that scored Schenck in the fifth and Dylan Perry hit a sacrifice fly that plated Miele in the sixth. Despite having five seniors head back to Arkansas for prom, the Mounties and pitcher Jarred Lunsford proved to be a solid test for FSHS. Cody Kukuk (5-0) earned the win and struck out two, despite allowing the go-ahead run to score after relieving Johnson in the seventh. The Firebirds will take on Shawnee Mission South at 4:30 on Thursday at SMS. Rogers Free State

Laughlin didn’t pitch poorly, but the Wildcats took advantage whenever he walked a batter or allowed a runner to advance on a wild pitch. He pitched five innings, giving up five runs on six hits with four walks. “We got beat today, man,” Stoll said. “I hate losing on Saturdays because it sits with you so long."

Lawrence High will entertain Shawnee Mission West on Tuesday and travel Friday to Shawnee Mission East. Tuesday’s first pitch is set for 5:30 p.m. Blue Springs (Mo.) 010 Lawrence High 000

“I love Lawrence, I love a good pair of earrings, and I love animals. Just by swiping my Lawrence GiveBack card at places like Prairie Pond Studio & Bead Co., Checkers or Set’em Up Jack’s, so many cool things happen. “You earn credit toward future purchases at any of over 50 locally-owned businesses (free money!), your dollars stay right here in Lawrence, and a portion of every purchase goes toward a charity that you choose (at no cost to you!). Mine is the Lawrence Humane Society, so sweeties like Zeus find good homes!”

Sometimes honesty isn’t the best policy

Dear Annie: My good friend “Lara” is three months pregnant with her third child. She recently confided in me that she purposely didn’t use birth control. She told her husband, “Joe,” that the pregnancy was “an accident.” The problem is, my husband played golf with Joe and told me how upset Joe is. He and Lara wanted another child, but both agreed that financially, it would be too difficult. He then told my husband that he couldn’t blame Lara since it wasn’t her fault the birth control failed. Unfortunately, I told my husband what Lara did, and now he wants to inform Joe. I said we should stay out of their business, but he is insistent. He wants me to tell Lara that either she tells Joe or he will. I think Lara was wrong to deceive Joe and told her so, but I don’t want to cause her any anxiety during her pregnancy. What should I do? — Desperate for Advice Dear Desperate: This is SO not your business. Ask your husband what he hopes to accomplish by telling Joe. That he will leave Lara? Be so upset that he cannot accept the child? Make her give up the baby for adoption? There are times when honesty is not the best policy, because it will only cause hurt and pain. This

‘Thrones’ not so magical in wit or acting HBO takes a spin of the dice, or the runes, with “Game of Thrones” (8 p.m., HBO). An ambitious 10-part series based on George R.R. Martin’s fantasy novel “A Song of Fire and Ice,” “Thrones” takes place in a magical kingdom spanning several climates and cultures, a place where seasons can last decades and supernatural spirits haunt frozen borders for thousands of years on end. For all of its novelty, “Thrones” feels thoroughly grounded in the he-man genre, spanning in sensibility from medieval northern Europe with its broadsword bashers to the sun-kissed isles of the Mediterranean, where bare-chested horsemen mount steeds and wenches with a grim nonchalance. Featuring a plot too complicated to explain without a flowchart, “Thrones” boils down to battle between rival families for the kingdom and the glory, etc. The folks way up North have the gruff-andtumble style of Europeans barely out of the dark ages. They haven’t had much time for refinement, having defended some kind of frozen walled border for 7,000 years. Some of their enemies have the platinum locks found on old ABBA album covers. They make a strategic alliance and bond through a gruesomely loveless marriage to brutal horsemen who dare not laugh. If I seem to be infusing this synopsis with feeble attempts at humor, forgive me. For there is little found onscreen. With the exception of a rather bookish, randy and cynical dwarf, no character is endowed with anything resembling wit or seems capable of uttering memorable dialogue. Like a lot of fantasy lore, “Thrones” seems long on imaginative narrative marinated in the mythic and familiar. There’s certainly enough going on to make you wonder what will happen next. But the biggest mystery here is why “Game of Thrones” is airing on HBO. It seems closer in sensibility to Syfy or Starz. I simply cannot imagine that the audience that showed up for “Mildred Pierce” will stick around for the second decapitation.

her boyfriend. Under no circumstances are you obligated to put him up at your home. While you don’t have to meet this man, Kelly may defend him more vociferously if she feels it’s the two of them against the world. You will be in a position to be more supportive of her if you meet the guy, and it sounds like she will need a shoulder to lean on.

Heat hold off 76ers’ late rally while running multiple bodies at Howard all night, and the rest of the Magic failed to step up. Howard tied a career high with 46 points, to go along with 19 rebounds. Jameer Nelson had 27, but no other Orlando player reached double figures.

Heat 97, 76ers 89 MIAMI — Chris Bosh scored 25 points and grabbed 12 rebounds, LeBron James finished with 21 points and 14 rebounds, and Miami held off a huge Philadelphia rally on Saturday in Game 1 of their Eastern Conference quarterfinal series. Dwyane Wade scored 17 for Miami, five of those points coming in the final 1:34. Philadelphia held the Heat scoreless for 4:37 of the fourth quarter and scored 12 straight points to close to 88-87, but never got the lead in the final minutes. Thaddeus Young had 20 points and 11 rebounds for the 76ers, while Jrue Holiday added 19, and Elton Brand finished with 17. Game 2 is Monday in Miami.

SHANGHAI-BASED ARTIST JIN SHAN is pictured with Kris Ercums, curator of global, contemporary and Asian art at the Spencer Museum of Art, underneath Shan’s installation “It Came from the Sky.”The installation, which features a 7-foot silicone policeman dangling below an image of space, is, according to Ercums, “ a playful critique of what is a police state in China.” It will be on display through August.

POLICE STATE New Spencer exhibit explores ideas behind political control By Michael C. Auchard Special to the Journal-World

Positions of authority, both celestial and secular, are a central theme running through Chinese installation artist Jin Shan’s work. “It Came From The Sky” made its debut Friday at the Spencer Museum of Art, 1301 Miss. The artist says he studies the idea of political control because of his complex relationship with his own government. “I play with a lot of styles with the theme of power,” Jin says, “with humor and different emotions. It’s very hard to figure out, which emotions you put in each work.” The artwork Jin is showing is a silicone rendering of a policeman, suspended by wires. It is lowered from the ceiling while surrounded by projected cosmic images from

SHANGHAI-BASED ARTIST JIN SHAN talks with media members during a break from working on his installation “It Came from the Sky,” which is on view now at Kansas University’s Spencer Museum of Art. the Hubble Space Telescope. Jin says the piece was inspired by Christian iconography, both Chinese and

Western culture and by ideas of power throughout history. Despite his background as an artist having to maneuver

through Chinese censorship, Jin says he doesn’t want his work to come off as specifically anti-Communist Party or even uniquely Chinese. “I don’t want to put myself out there as someone who’s against government,” he says. “I don’t want to be the ‘Communist-country artist.’ Around the globe, there are so many people pressured by political powers, but I want to get beyond that. My work isn’t about Chinese issues or American issues. It’s about human issues — it’s more philosophical.” Kris Imants Ercums, curator of global, contemporary and Asian art at the Spencer Museum of Art, says Jin’s work is important and timely.

High IQ fails to manifest itself in practical ways Boomer Girl Diary I ’ve always considered myself a person with above-average intelligence. This belief, however misconstrued, originated with the nuns who attempted to impart an education to me in the ’60s and ’70s. As ordained by the diocese, they would administer all manner of standardized tests and report to my parents: “Your daughter’s a smart girl. She just doesn’t apply herself.” (Alternately: “Catherine isn’t working up to her full potential.”) Once, when discussing my college options with our earnest but narcoleptic high school counselor, Sister Mary Cleophas, I accidentally glimpsed my IQ score on the “permanent record” she held in her hands as she nodded off.

Cathy Hamilton

In 1972, this was akin to discovering your father’s pay stub or the contents of your mother’s bedside table. IQ scores were classified, top secret, “don’t ask, don’t tell” information no child was permitted to have. Naturally, I became obsessed with the number and looked it up

on the IQ scale (how I accomplished this without Google, I cannot say). There — in the Encyclopedia Britannica or other ancient tome — was my quotient, solidly above average. (Not “genius,” mind you. That DNA went to my middle sister — the lawyer — along with thin, tapered fingers and flawless skin.) But, my score wasn’t chopped liver, and I’ve been clinging to it like a life preserver for decades. Why? Because, most days, I’m convinced I am the STUPIDEST PERSON IN THE WORLD! Just the other day, for example, I spent far too long pushing on a door that was clearly marked PULL. I’m talking five, maybe 10 seconds, complete with cussing

at the door for not opening readily. Can you say, “One taco short of a combo plate”? While cooking, I will routinely reach for the lid on a pot of boiling water, completely disregarding the four oven mitts in the drawer next to the cooktop. (Yes, I said “routinely,” thus disproving the old “once burned, twice shy” theory.) In other words, the wheel is turning, but the hamster is dead. On more than one occasion, I have walked full bore into a closed screened door. While these antics provided an endless visual loop of hilarity for my family, nothing makes a person feel stupider.

These cameras suitable for casual shutterbugs By Mike Yoder

Mike Yoder/Journal-World Photo

DEPENDING ON YOUR CAMERA NEEDS, the camera capabilities in your cell phone may be all you require. Other alternatives are the popular and pocketable pointand-shoots and the top of the line DSLR with interchangeable lenses. See past Behind the Lens columns at

I’ve owned many cameras in my life and each one has filled a specific need. When I’m asked about what camera I use or would recommend, I have different answers. The camera I use for work may not be suitable for a weeklong expedition on a bicycle. And if you’re planning a safari vacation, I would be wrong in recommending a pocket pointand-shoot. Because photography is both a profession and a passion for me, I’m never short of alternative cameras for various situations. But for casual shutterbugs, one camera may be the household maximum. Below, I’ve listed three categories of cameras, some of their pros and cons and a couple top models in each category. One



international issues. “Jin Shan combines humor with social commentary,” Ercums says, “and so this is kind of a playful approach to art that allows audiences to engage with a topic that can be fairly challenging. Most of his work responds to the way that China is being thrust into a global context. This kind of dizzying transformation of Chinese society, which oftentimes brings artistic expression into direct conflict with state authority — one of the prevailing topics in his work is this critique of authority.” Ercums says “It Came ‘IT CAME From The FROM THE Sky” was conceived by Jin SKY’ after a visit to the museum This exhibit by Jin last year. He Shan is on display says the artist at Kansas University’s considered the space he Spencer Museum had to work of Art through with as well August. as other artwork in the museum, especially medieval Christian art. He then combined the concepts with his own familiarity with Chinese traditions. “He wanted to combine those ideas with the secular notion that comes with the embodiment, in human scale, of the policeman. It’s not a critique of policemen, per se, but they serve as a representation of the power that all humans thirst for. Placing the policeman in this cosmic realm is a way to bring together very mundane, dayto-day ideas with more cosmic, macrocosmic ideas of power.” Ercums says it’s important to bring international artists into the community. He says both artists and non-artists benefit from exposure to world art and global current events. “I think that Lawrence and Kansas City have one of the most dynamic art scenes in the country. Any way we can grow that — I call it art ecology — is good. The best way to do that is to bring all kinds of stimulus and allow all types of artists to talk to each other and exchange ideas. This is important to broader audiences, too. It helps people to think of themselves in a broader, global conscience. We can’t just stay sequestered in our own region. We have to think of ourselves and how we interact with the whole world.” Saralyn Reece Hardy, director of the Spencer Museum of Art, says she’s looking forward to the unveiling of Jin’s installation piece. “I think, in this case, there’s a sense of fit with Jin Shan and the subject of his work for this particular moment in the world,” she says. “I’m excited to have an artist of his ability and vision, and I’m equally honored to be presenting his work in this moment when global artistic expression needs to see the light.”

into a plate glass window. Translation: Prairie Village must be missing its idiot. The latest example of my stupidity occurred three weeks ago when I returned to the gym after a long winter hiatus. My objective? To sweat away 25 pounds in four weeks, just in time for the Mediterranean cruise I won in a Food and Wine magazine Facebook contest (more on that story of stupid luck next time). The goal, in my mind, was totally reachable. All it would take were two daily workouts at elite athlete intensity and food consumption of 800 calories per day. In the gym, I tackled each of the weight machines with a vigorous sense of purpose. I pumped, I pulled, I lifted, I stretched. I put extra effort into the hip adductor machine, willing my inner thighs to melt away as I thrust my legs, in and out, in and out…. Three workouts in a row and I was feeling great. Until day four. On that day, I awoke in agony. My right thigh, hip and lower back were in searing pain. Bruises had appeared overnight on my groin area. I shuffled to the bathroom like Tim Conway’s old man character on “The Carol Burnett Show.” The descent to the toilet

may be just right for your pocketbook and camera bag.

Cell phone cameras The quality of many cell phone cameras is now on par with consumer pointand-shoot cameras of several years ago. If your main use of photographs is posting online, a camera phone may be all you need. Pros: Always with you. Ease of operation. Free with phone purchase. Cons: Limited or no zoom. No exposure control. Lower quality than standalone camera. Not really suitable for prints larger than 5-by-7 inches. The 5-megapixel iPhone 4 has excellent quality and touch-screen focus. The Sony Ericsson Satio boasts a 12.1-megapixel camera with advanced editing options.

The moral of the story is this (Parents, please take note): IQ tests mean absolutely nothing.” seat from the upright position was beyond excruciating. “HOW COULD I BE SO STUPID! I HAVE AN ABOVE-AVERAGE IQ!” I cried. Despite megadoses of ibuprofen, Tylenol, Icy Hot and heat patches, the pain took weeks to subside. Riding into Kansas City to attend my mother’s wedding, I held a bag of frozen corn to my groin under my fancy pants. (We were out of frozen peas.) “What’d you do, Mom?” my son inquired from the back seat. “Let’s just say I’m a few peas short of a casserole, dear,” I replied, switching the bag of corn to the tender spot on my back. “You know, like all foam and no beer?” The moral of the story is this (Parents, please take note): IQ tests mean absolutely nothing. In the end, the brilliant Forrest Gump had the right idea: Stupid is as stupid does. — Cathy Hamilton is a public relations and marketing consultant, author of 16 books and blogger at Contact her at

LASTING IMPRESSIONS Kitchen & bath remodels are often prompted by new trends and style preferences. This means that some appliances and fixtures are replaced before they reach the useful end of their lives. As a result, homeowners may be able to save money by reusing the fixtures and appliances that they now have if they are still functionally and aesthetically acceptable. If knowing their life expectancy will help consumers make this determination, the National Association of Home Builders conducted a study that may help: Refrigerators and electric ranges can be expected to last 13 years (gas ranges 15 years); freezers should last 11 years; and dishwashers and microwave ovens can last 9 years. We pride ourselves in being able to provide kitchen renovations for every budget and we understand that you may not want to replace all your major appliances. We’ll be happy to work around the equipment you already have, using our custom, semi-custom, or stock cabinetry to make your whole kitchen shine like its brand new, even if some of the elements aren’t. Please call Kitchen & Bath Designs today to make an appointment!

Remembering Mother President Obama’s sister pens kids’ book about the pair’s extraordinary parent

In 1944, Aldous Huxley wrote a rather edgy children’s story, “The Crows of Pearblossom,” for his young niece as a Christmas present. The story nearly vanished before it appeared in a small format with black-and-white illustrations in 1967. Lucky for today’s children, this clever tale of a frustrated wannabe mother crow and a sneaky snake is back in a grand picture book with bright, engaging artwork by Sophie Blackall. Huxley’s niece who received this story as a present, Olivia de Haulleville, writes an afterward about her uncle, known as the author of “Brave New World,” and how the manuscript survived a fire.

It was then she thought about how their mother, Ann George Runyan, Dunham, would jostle her eighth-grader, awake wherever they were — Lawrence in India or New York, Eng“’Cirque du Freak’ by Darren land or Hawaii — to head outShan.

Suhaila, now 6, was born a decade after Dunham died of cancer, but Soetoro-Ng has paired her and “Grandma Annie” through the moon in a picture book out this month. The dreamily drawn book from Candlewick Press, “Ladder to the Moon,” opens with little Suhaila asking her mother what her grandmother was like. “She was like the Dave Kordahl, moon,” her mother replies. graduate student, “Full, soft and curious.” Lawrence In a telephone interview “’The Martian Chronicles’ by from her home in Hawaii, SoeRay Bradbury.

That moment was a great shuddering moment of love and longing.

The book describes how April Ramos, one night, a golden ladder social worker, appears at the girl’s open bedLawrence room window with her “I’m currently reading ’Great grandmother, hair flowing Expectations’ by Charles down her back and silver Dickens.” bangles tinkling on her arms. The two climb to the moon, looking down on a world f illed with sorrow, from earthquakes and tsunamis, poverty and intolerance. They invite children and others who are suffering to take refuge on their gray, glowing moon, until it’s time for the girl to say goodbye and climb back into bed, knowing they’ve helped others heal.

MAYA SOETORO-NG, left, sits with daughter Suhaila Ng, 6, in their home in Honolulu. Soetoro-Ng, President Obama’s sister, draws on memories of their mother, Ann Dunham, for her new picture book titled “Ladder to the Moon.”

I wanted her (the book’s illustrator) to try and capture their spirit, but I told her I wanted them to be ethnically ambiguous. I wanted them to be every woman and every child.” — Maya Soetoro-Ng, President Obama’s younger sister posed on her own, 6-year-old grammar and all. “And my cousins read my moms book. and my teachers read my moms book. And when my sister is old enough to read I hope she reads it. I hope that when they read it they think about peace and no more fiting in the world and I hope that many peopol like it.” She continued: “I think its awesome that my name is in the book becuaes I love books and maybe someone like me will read the book and feel like I am there friend.”

At home in the world Friendship was something that came easily to Dunham, explained Soetoro-Ng. Her mother lived in 13 different places around the world, first alone and later with her daughter and son in tow, but felt at home, “more or less,” in each, Soetoro-Ng said. And how did this affect Soetoro-Ng’s famous brother? “That ability to break down perceived boundaries or cross bridges is something that he got from her,” she said. Dunham, divorced from Obama’s father and years later from Soetoro-Ng’s, died in 1995 at age 53 of ovarian and uterine cancer before the births of her

four grandchildren — Suhaila, her 2-year-old sister, Savita, and their famous cousins, Malia and Sasha Obama. A natural storyteller, Dunham passed on many of her best to her kids while under the glow of the moon. “The moon sort of guided us to points of intersection,” Soetoro-Ng said. “She loved the moon so much because the moon was the same for everybody and all of these people and places were connected because we shared the same moon.” The book takes its title from Georgia O’Keeffe’s 1958 painting of a floating ladder on an aqua background.

Scholar and author Born in Jakarta, Soetoro-Ng attended Barnard College and the University of Hawaii before earning her master’s in secondary education from New York University. She spent several years teaching and developing curricula for public middle schools in Manhattan, then returned to Hawaii and received a Ph.D in international comparative education. She now lives with her family in Honolulu, working as a cultural educator for the nonprofit East-West Center and lecturing in the educa-

tion department at the University of Hawaii. So when did she find the time to write a children’s book? In Chicago, at her brother’s kitchen table while helping to get him elected president. Soetoro-Ng had always wanted to write a book for young kids. At the time, Obama had just signed a contract for “Of Thee I Sing: A Letter to My Daughters,” his picture book released last November. “I felt suddenly brave, taking the risk of trying to get published,” she said. Soetoro-Ng, nine years younger than the president, has always celebrated her multicultural heritage as the daughter of a white American and an Indonesian dad, but Dunham has brown skin in the book — and deliberately so. Soetoro-Ng showed her illustrator, Yuyi Morales, photos of Dunham and Suhaila before Morales went to work and “asked her to not be true to those pictures.” Morales drew partly on her own Mexican heritage in creating the drawings. “I wanted her to try and capture their spirit, but I told her I wanted them to be ethnically ambiguous,” she said. “I wanted them to be every woman and every child. I wanted a European child, an African child, an Asian child to be able to feel a certain familiarity in their visage.” Soetoro-Ng isn’t finished yet. Candlewick also plans to publish her young adult novel about a 16-year-old healer. No release date has been set.

Killing off a Swedish detective; Wallander fans deserve better By Ed Siegel Newsday

Kurt Wallander is the Sherlock Holmes of our day. If Holmes’ gaslit streets and treacherous moors defined the Victorian mystery, then Wallander’s desolate Sweden captures the atmospherics of today’s brooding Nordic crime novels better than anyone. (Sorry, Stieg Larrsson fans.) Unfortunately, there’s another striking similarity. Henning Mankell, it seems, has come to dislike Wallander as much as Arthur Conan Doyle came to hate Holmes, which he makes clear in his last, thoroughly unsatisfying Wallander novel, “The Troubled Man.” (There’s still a novella unreleased in English, “The Grave.”) While I’m not at liberty to say whether Wallander winds up in the Swedish equivalent of the Reichen-

bach Falls, it’s clear that Mankell has grown tired of his great detective. Again like Doyle, Mankell seems to want to leave Wallander behind so he can pursue more serious themes in his fiction — like blaming the United States for everything from AIDS in South Africa to infiltration of Swedish politics. That, in itself, isn’t the problem. The issue is that Mankell’s nonWallander novels, such as “Kennedy’s Brain” and “The Man from Beijing,” just aren’t very good. They’re bloated, turgid and laughably bleak. Wallander imposes discipline on Mankell. The detective’s melancholy riffs on Swedish society, his dedication to doing his part to maintain a semblance of morality, the intertwin-

ing of his personal life and police procedurals are what have made Wallander so fascinating. Until now. Mankell was a master of letting his protagonist age as the series progressed, but now, at 60, Wallander has internalized all his worries about Sweden as he ponders the abyss and obsesses about his failing memory. His daughter, Linda, who established such a sparkling relationship with him in “Before the Frost,” merely nags her father as he reminisces about family life — his disagreeable late father, his childhood dog’s getting hit by a truck, his alcoholic ex-wife and his cancer-ridden ex-lover. Linda, meanwhile, has taken up with a dullard financier whose parents have gone missing. Are they Russian spies?

Are they alive? This is the central mystery of the novel, hardly as compelling as the shocking murders Wallander has been faced with in the past. Not that it’s a bad story. Mankell’s ability to unspool a mystery and Wallander’s ability to solve it are still at the head of the class. Just what is going on with these disappeared people? One seems to be a spy, but the financier son, who’s obsessed by the international financial collapse, is awfully suspicious. Could he be a Scandinavian Bernie Madoff, or are the Swedish banks up to no good? Mankell does a good enough job keeping us guessing and the resolution of the mystery is nicely turned. But it doesn’t atone for the disappointing way he resolves Wallander’s life story. Again, no details, but Wallander’s and Mankell’s fans deserved much better.

For the Kansas Relays, the 10 best running films By Eric Melin Special to the Journal-World

The Kansas Relays hit Lawrence this week, and residents may catch the fever of track and field competition. If you find yourself overcome with the need to watch inspiring movies about runners who overcome long odds and triumph in the end, there’s no shortage. This list of movies about runners should do the trick!

10. “Running Brave” (1983) A Kansas University sports legend, Billy Mills, came out of nowhere in the 1964 Tokyo Olympics to win the 10,000 meter race in a stunning upset. His story is all the more inspiring because he was an orphan and a member of the Sioux tribe who went on to an athletic scholarship at KU. Unfortunately, in the watered-down movie of his story, “Running Brave,” he is played by Robby Benson. Maybe someone will make a better film sometime soon that deals more seriously with Mills’ discrimination and the other challenges he faced every day. 9. “The Long Run” (2001) Armin Mueller-Stahl (“Shine”) plays a Germanborn ex-runner living in South Africa who never achieved his dream of winning the Comrades Marathon, a grueling 54mile run through the South African desert. His hopes are renewed when he meets an amateur woman with natural talent — and an illegal alien to boot — and decides to coach her with the vigor he had reserved for himself. 8. “Atletu” (2009) The title of this 2009 Ethiopian film translates in English as “The Athlete,” and it’s about the first African to win a gold medal in the Olympics. Abebe Biki-

la placed first in the marathon during the Rome 1960 games while running in his bare feet. After he became the first marathon runner to win a gold medal in the race a second time, he was injured in an auto accident. The film follows his journey from runner to athletic representative for handicapped people everywhere.

7. “Jim Thorpe – AllAmerican” (1951) Michael Curtiz (“Casablanca”) directed this biopic of the man who was called the world’s greatest athlete after winning the gold medals for the pentathlon and decathlon at the 1912 Olympics in Stockholm. Burt Lancaster played the Native American sports hero, who wasn’t just a runner, but also played football, baseball, basketball and even lacrosse to great acclaim. Lancaster, of course, isn’t Native American, but he does have the pure athleticism and brawny shoulders to carry the film. 6. “Prefontaine” (1997) The first of two movies to come out within a year of each other that were based on the life of 1972 Olympic runner Steve Prefontaine, this one stars Jared Leto as the title character — a guy with one leg longer than the other and a giant chip on his shoulder. He forms a strong bond with his track coach in Oregon, Bill Bowerman (R. Lee Ermey), who goes on to form Nike shoes. His is an unusual story that ends in tragedy and didn’t really light up the box office, so it’s strange that this movie appeared one year later: 5. “Without Limits” (1998) Billy Crudup plays Prefontaine in this version of his story, directed by Robert Towne (who wrote “Chinatown” and will appear again on this list). It has a bigger

budget, a better lead performance and was shot at the University of Oregon, so it is more accurate in terms of location. Ironically, this version jumbles the facts a little more than “Prefontaine” does. Extra bonus: Donald Sutherland as Bowerman.

4. “Marathon Man” (1976) While most of the movies on this list deal with competitive running and have a fairly predictable sports arc, no movie list about runners would be complete without the paranoid thriller “Marathon Man.” Dustin Hoffman plays the unknowing brother of a secret government agent who is thrust into a real-world nightmare where everyone thinks he knows too much. Although the film is pretty preposterous, it has a lot of genuinely tense moments. An avid runner, Hoffman’s character uses his athleticism to escape from an infamous torture scene that has undoubtedly made dentist’s lives harder ever since.

this film is filled with the bitterness and resentment that so many young people identified within post-war Britain. Tom Courtenay plays an angry young man — a petty thief sentenced to reform school who is torn between his rebellious tendency to rebuke the corrupt class system and the opportunity at rehabilitation by using his natural gifts as a

broken-field runner for his “school.” The movie helped ring in a new wave of working-class drama and antiauthoritative cinema.

1. “Chariots of Fire” (1981) Although this underdog Best Picture winner is probably most famous for its slow-motion scene of British runners along the beach set to Vangelis’ synthesized

theme song, it’s actually quite complex. Based on the true story of two teammates who run in the 1924 Paris Olympics — a Jewish Cambridge student fighting prejudice and a devout Christian missionary who runs for his faith — it examines the drive of the human spirit and explores the reasons that people compete in athletics.

3. “Personal Best” (1982) The directorial debut of Robert Towne (who directed “Without Limits”), “Personal Best” is a layered movie that features Mariel Hemingway and Patrice Donnelly (a real-life runner) as track stars trying out for the U.S. Olympic team in hopes of competing in the 1980 games. Besides focusing on a homosexual relationship between two women, the film broke the standard inspiring-story mode because its athletes never made it to the Olympics. The U.S. issued a boycott of the games, held in the U.S.S.R., over the Soviet war in Afghanistan. 2. “The Loneliness of the Long Distance Runner” (1962) Adapted from his own short story by Alan Sillitoe,

Grilled avocados taste like summer Family Features

If you're looking to add fresh flavor and good nutrition to your menu, look no further than the humble avocado. In a salad, as a spread or slider topper, or even on the grill (yes, they can be grilled), avocados are packed with healthy goodness. "A lot of people don't know just how good California avocados are for you," said Ben Holtz, President of California Avocados Direct. "They have nearly 20 essential nutrients that's a lot of good nutrition packed into a great tasting fruit." According to Holtz, ● Avocados have mono and polyunsaturated "good" fats that are recommended as part of a healthy diet; they can help reduce blood cholesterol levels and decrease your risk of heart disease. ● Avocados are rich in beta-sitosterol, which helps lower cholesterol levels. Studies have shown an average drop in cholesterol of 17 percent after consuming avocados for only one week. ● Avocados contain 60 percent more potassium than bananas. Holtz says that avocados are best when they're as fresh as possible, during peak consumption periods when the fruit moves quickly off the shelves. "This is wonderful for those that live near the growing areas in California, but not so easy for everybody else living across the country. That's why we started California Avocados Direct - to offer fresh avocados to those who want to buy the best available, and who want to know the farmer that grew them." Holtz says that they are able to hand pack and ship fresh avocados the very same day they're harvested, letting them share farm-fresh produce with families all across the country. "As a family farm, we live on and care for the land," he said. "This allows us to give daily atten-

OSKALOOSA RESIDENT Scott Clabaugh demonstrates how to use his “tomato lasso” he developed and intends to sell as he extends it around a small hibiscus bush near the front of his property. Clabaugh sought a solution to the hassles of tomato cages after last season and developed a means of supporting the plants to a t-post with a clamp and cable line.



omato staking and caging has been a battle nearly every year that I garden, but a simple new staking system — the tomato lasso — may put an end to my struggles. Keeping tomato plants off the ground is important for disease control and preventing early fruit decay from soil contact. Many gardeners use tomato cages commonly available from many garden centers. Some gardeners make their own from fencing. If you have played around with cages, you know the short cages will only hold a tomato plant for half the season before falling over with the weight of the plant. The few small tomato cages still in my collection are now reserved for pepper plants only. Larger, heavier duty cages do a better job of supporting plants. They are, however, more expensive and take up considerably more storage space.

Jennifer Smith

So, when Scott Clabaugh told me he had a fix for all of my tomato cage woes, I enthusiastically asked for elaboration. Like myself, Clabaugh, of rural Oskaloosa, was tired of wrangling cages. He shares garden space with his father, who has always used cages on their tomato plants. “Last year, Dad went out of town and we didn’t get the cages on soon enough. It was almost impossible to tuck the plants in without breaking

stems,” he says. “I knew there had to be a better way to do it.” That experience led Clabaugh to toy around with stakes and cables and clips before creating something that worked well. Clabaugh’s contraption is basically a piece of cable looped through a modified electric fence insulator. The loop of the cable creates the “lasso.” “With this, you just install a t-post,” Clabaugh says. “Then I would use two or three lassos per plant. You just clip them on when you need them and clip them off when you are done. No cages to untangle in the fall, either.” T-posts are commonly used, inexpensive steel fence posts. When viewed from the end, the length of the post is shaped like the letter T. Also, there are several different styles of electric fence insulators available, but Clabaugh uses one made for

attachment to t-posts. Clabaugh’s choice of insulators also has a clip that allows for easy adjustment of the cable. “If the plant grows outside the lasso or you need to adjust it, you just unwrap it and go right back around,” Clabaugh says as clips and unclips a lasso from the t-post. Since his tomato plants are still small, he models the lassos on a hibiscus, and I start envisioning false indigo lassos and other uses. Clabaugh also seals the ends of tomato lasso cables to keep them from slipping through the insulators. Storage became another topic of discussion. Clabaugh has his inventory of lassos easily hanging in the garage, with a short stack of t-posts outside. I thought of my tangled pile of tomato cages at home, mangled with remnants of tomato plants of past years. “I tried using rebar (another type of steel bar), but it wasn’t

strong enough to hold the tomato plants up,” Clabaugh says. “I also tried different kinds of cables and played around with creating a mold for a plastic clip, but this system really worked the best.” Another hit for me was durability. “These things should last 50 years or more, except for maybe the plastic clip,” says Clabaugh. “Those can be replaced pretty easy.” Clabaugh’s already-assembled tomato lassos are for sale for $2 each and can be acquired by contacting him at Questions about the tomato lasso can also be directed to him at that address. I hope tomato lassos help me do a little less cage wrangling. — Jennifer Smith is the Horticulture Extension Agent for K-State Research and Extension — Douglas County and can be reached at 843-7058.

Kovel’s Antiques: Flashy product labels have always been in style By Terry Kovel

Deceptive advertising has been a problem for centuries. The “cures” of Victorian times were promoted with posters, trade cards, almanacs, recipe books, calendars and other testimonials. One of the prominent makers of cures, remedies and hair and skin products was James C. Ayer & Co. From 1838 to 1841, Ayer worked in an apothecary shop in Connecticut. He learned the business and studied the Harvard College suggested curriculum for chemistry. He also studied medicine with a doctor. He bought the drugstore, sold his own remedies and eventually owned multiple stores, factories and other

investments that made him a wealthy man. He died in 1878. The business stayed in his family eight years, and then was sold to Sterling Products. One of his famous products was Ayer’s Hair Vigor. It was advertised as a “coloring and dressing” for hair that prevents and cures hair loss and “restores gray hair to its natural vitality and color.” Restoring was really dying, but this was just a tiny exaggeration compared with the claims for other Ayer’s products. One said it restored your health after a malaria attack. Another promised a “youthful appearance.” An Ayer’s hair product was still for sale in the 1930s. The colorful Ayer’s bottles, posters and printed material with

unusual graphics are popular with today’s collectors.


In 1980 I paid $500 for a hand-carved and inlaid coffee table that was a floor sample in an interior design company’s Cincinnati showroom. The name “John Widdicomb” is stamped on the underside of the tabletop. Can you tell me what the table’s market value is today?


John Widdicomb Co. was in business in Grand Rapids, Mich., from 1897 until 2002, when the company closed and its name was sold to L. & J.G. Stickley, Inc., of Manlius, N.Y. Stickley now sells a “John Widdicomb Collec-

tion” of traditional pieces. John Widdicomb Co. was known for its high-end designs, which might include your table. Pieces were marked in various ways through the years, but the simple mark “John Widdicomb” was used from the mid-1950s until the mid1970s. If your table is in good shape, it could sell for $500 or more. Q: I have a pair of matching vases that I bought in an antiques shop in England in 1956. They are 8 inches tall and have gold lettering on the bottom. Some of the letters are worn off, but it includes “J. Kent, Ye Olde Fo ... Ware, Fenton, England.” Can you tell me who made these

vases and how old they are? A: Your vases were made by James Kent, who worked at the Old Foley Pottery in Fenton, England. The pottery was established at Longton, England, in 1897 by James Aloysius Kent (18641953) and five of his workmen. The words “Old Foley Pottery” were used after 1955. The company was in business until about 1989, but the name “James Kent” is now being used by another company in Fenton. Your pair of vases could sell for $250 to $300. Tip: When regluing loose rungs or parts of chairs, remove old glue with vinegar. Drip it into any holes with a small oil can.

THE WOMAN pictured on this poster has hair that is several feet long. No doubt it is the result of using Ayer’s HairVigor. The poster, 15 by 12 inches, has a few tackholes and scuffs but is estimated to sell at auction for $1,500 to $2,000.
