AUGUST BONECUTTER AND HER SON JEREMY SCOTT, 17, SIT in their room at Emmanuel Lutheran Church, where they are staying as part of the Family Promise program that provides homeless families a temporary place to live at churches throughout the city.

Family Promise provides temporary place to stay, eat By Brenna Hawley

In one week, August Bonecutter lost her job, her home and her car. That year, her mother died, her sister had to go to the hospital for a difficult pregnancy, her nephew got pneumonia and her relationship went sour. Things were difficult, and with three of her own children and a younger sister to care for, it was the first time she was homeless. That was in 2008. Bonecutter, now 36, got back on her feet with help from friends in Ottawa and was able to get housing. Child

Without Family Promise, I’m not sure how bright my future would be, because I’ve set goals and actually met them.” — August Bonecutter, whose family is homeless support and survivor benefits for her sister paid the bills, but when her sister and oldest son aged out of the system, money was short again. The pipes burst in her home, and once again she had no place to go. Bonecutter knew she needed to find another full-time job, and fast. She moved her family to Lawrence and lived

in temporary housing. But time ticked away, and two days before her November finish date of a housing program she was in, she had nowhere to live. She called Family Promise. The agency gave Bonecutter, her younger son and daughter a place to live so they wouldn’t be homeless. The program is faith-based and provides shelter to a maximum of four homeless families, helping them get back on their feet. The families rotate among 13 Lawrence churches, sleeping in individual rooms for one week, moving each Sunday. They eat food supplied by

Another day in the grocery line. The Twinkies, the T-bones, the toothpaste — all the items of your healthy life — go through the scanner. Beep, beep, beep. $100 total. (Wow, $100 — even. Maybe you should go on “The Price is Right.”) The kindly checker turns to the computer at his side and types in a few numbers. “All right,” he says. “We’ll charge you sales tax on $110.” “What the ... ,” you say, pointing to the register. “It is $100. See?” “Yes, $100 is the price, but our model here,” the checker says tapping the computer, “says $110 is the real value of your purchase today.” A scratch of the head. “The model?” you ask. “Yes, the model,” the checker says. “We ran your purchase today through the model, and it says most people have been paying about $110 for all the items you bought. So we need to charge you tax on $110.” Never would happen, right? Well, unless you change “sales tax” to “property tax.” In that case, it happens all the time.

The Journal-World obtained a copy of a Lawrence Board of Realtors database that lists the address, closing date and sales price of every home sold in Lawrence by a Realtor in 2010. An analysis found that homes often had tax values higher than

near Eudora when suddenly a trailer slammed into the side of her vehicle and caused her Mitsubishi sport utility vehicle to flip over. The trailer had come loose from an eastbound vehicle and traveled across the 60-foot grass median before pieces of wood splintered into Arensberg’s SUV on impact. The 22year-old Kansas University student

was OK after suffering abrasions on her arm and under her chin. A Missouri man had more serious injuries after a similar incident in January when a trailer came loose and struck a vehicle near De Soto. Bad memories flooded back for Arensberg on April 16 when she

learned of a cross-median crash near the same spot of her accident on the highway east of the Church Street interchange. Two people, including 5-year-old Cainan Shutt of Eudora, died in the head-on crash after an eastbound car driven by 24-year-old Ryan Pittman of Eudora, who also

died, crossed the median and struck the westbound minivan Cainan’s stepgrandfather, Danny Basel, was driving. Now Arensberg is one of thousands of people on Facebook who have written to state officials, including Gov. Sam Brownback, following the lead of Eudora Mayor Scott Hopson urging the Kansas Department of Transportation to install cable median barriers to impede out-of-control vehicles from crossing over into the wrong lane. “A cable system would help prevent accidents like these and also save the lives of those we love,” Please see K-10, page 8A

KU researcher discovers not-so-itsy-bitsy-spider fossil A FOSSIL OF NEPHILA JURASSICA, with a leg span of nearly six inches long, was found in the Inner Mongolia region of China. Paul Selden, a Kansas University distinguished professor, recently described the find in the journal Biology Letters. The spider is believed to be nearly 165 million years old and related to modern-day orb weavers.

Nephila jurassica 165 million years old, had 6-inch leg span By Andy Hyland

Yes, Paul Selden says, it’s the biggest spider fossil on record, one whose leg span stretches to almost 6 inches. But that’s not really the most exciting part of the Nephila jurassica spider, said the distinguished professor from Kansas University who is an expert in fossilized spiders. Selden and his team, whose research was published recently in Biology Letters, linked the spider that walked around 165 million years ago to several similar spiders that still roam the earth.

The find — likely because of its size — attracted quite a bit of national and international press coverage. “The size is not that big a thing,” Selden said, noting that several spiders that big — and even bigger — are still around. “We can place it right into a modern genus with these modern orb-weavers.” These kinds of finds can take awhile before scientists understand what they’re looking at, Selden said. This particular spider fossil came to him in 2005 from a friend who had collected some specimens in the Inner Mongolia region of China. That usually entails purchasing

them from farmers in the region, Selden said. Around Christmas, Selden was looking at the find more carefully, and began to realize what he was seeing. “It’s what you might call a living fossil,” he said. The process for finding these kinds of discoveries is an exciting one, said Erin Saupe, a doctoral student studying under Selden. It’s like a puzzle, she said. “You’re uncovering things that nobody’s ever experienced before,” she said. — Higher education reporter Andy Hyland can be reached at 832-6388. Follow him on Twitter at

DEATHS Howard John Baumgartel Jr. A memorial service for Howard John Baumgartel, Jr. will be held 2 pm, Saturday, May 7, 2011, at Pioneer Cemetery on the University of Kansas campus. He was a beloved father, grandfather, professor, humanitarian, activist for social justice, and friend who died on Saturday, February 12, 2011, at the Montebello Assisted Living Facility in Albuquerque, New Mexico. He died on the 202nd anniversary of the birth of Abraham Lincoln, whose picture hung on his wall his entire adult life. Howard grew up in western Pennsylvania and attended Yale University and Wabash College, where he earned his bachelor’s degree, before joining the U.S. Navy in 1942. During the Second World War, Howard served in the Pacific aboard the “USS Ringgold” as a gunnery officer. He participated in many battles, most notably at Tarawa. While on leave in 1945, Howard married Nancy Taggart in Indianapolis, who became the mother of his three children. They honeymooned in Chicago at the same hotel where Lauren Bacall and Humphrey Bogart were spending their honeymoon. After being mustered out of the Navy, he earned an MBA at Harvard University. After working in investment banking, Howard decided to become an academician and taught at the University of Kansas (KU) for three years before attending graduate school at the University of Michigan, where he earned his Ph.D. in 1955. Howard returned to KU and worked in the Psychology Department and School of Business until he retired in 1988. Howard made many notable contributions to academic life at KU. The single largest of these was his starting and developing the Human Relations program at the university, a program based on the human potential movement of the 1950s and 1960s. Howard’s professional life took him to India six times, twice as a Fulbright Scholar. Each time he worked toward the economic development of the nation and

made lifelong friends, especially at the Xavier Labor Relations Institute in Jamshedpur. For four years, Howard served as an assistant dean in the College of Arts and Sciences at KU. Howard married Marguerite Myers Kerfoot, a professor of art education at KU, in 1964 in Calcutta, and they lived together happily in Lawrence, Kansas until she died in October 2009. Marguerite brought three children of her own into Howard’s extended family. After retiring, Howard devoted his time to many interests, worked in a hospice program and began attending various churches in the Lawrence area. He and Nancy had joined the Mount Oread Friends Meeting in Lawrence in the late 1950s and, as his retirement years passed, he attended that meeting more and more regularly. In 2009, Howard suffered a major stroke and moved into Brandon Woods, an assisted living facility in Lawrence, and was joined there by Marguerite a few months later. In December of 2009, he moved to Albuquerque, New Mexico, to live closer to his family and shared with them many wonderful times in the year before he died. Howard is survived by six children: Mona Baumgartel, John Baumgartel, Tom Baumgartel, Bill Kerfoot, Charles Kerfoot, and John Kerfoot; ten grandchildren: on the Baumgartel side, Elaine, Sylvie, Jeremiah, and Lukas, and on the Kerfoot side, Chris, Kerry, Alex, Katie, Joshua, and Travis; and five greatgrandchildren. Contributions may be made in Howard’s name to the Peace and Justice Scholarship that he started in the 1990s, a program that helps fund graduate students working in whatever small ways to lessen conflict and violence in our world: KU Endowment, P.O.

Legislative assessment splits on party line


Gadhafi escapes NATO strike; son killed Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi escaped a NATO missile strike in Tripoli on Saturday, but his youngest son and three grandchildren under the age of 12 were killed, a government spokesman said. The strike, which came hours after Gadhafi called for a cease-fire and negotiations in what rebels called a publicity stunt, marked an escalation of international efforts to prevent the Libyan regime from regaining momentum. Rebels honked horns and chanted “Allahu Akbar” or “God is great” while speeding through the western city of Misrata, which Gadhafi’s forces have besieged and subjected to random shelling for two months, killing hundreds. Fireworks were set off in front of the central Hikma hospital, causing a brief panic that the light would draw fire from Gadhafi’s forces. The attack struck the house of Gadhafi’s youngest son, Seif al-Arab, when the Libyan leader and his wife were inside. White House spokesman Shin Inouye declined to comment on the developments in Libya, referring questions to NATO. Alliance officials in Brussels said a statement would be issued later today.


Brownback touts jobs focus; Democrats say social issues wasted time By Scott Rothschild

ONLINE: See video of Gov. Sam Brownback at

TOPEKA — Gov. Sam Brownback says the 2011 legislative session has been about “jobs, jobs, jobs.” “That has been our primary focus,” Brownback said at a news conference last week as the Legislature resumed the session.

But Democrats say Brownback, a Republican, and the Republican-dominated Legislature have been more about killing jobs and pleasing the GOP base on social issues. And the Democrats point out there is still no resolution of the state budget, and there appears to be an impasse on patching up the state pension fund. “With his first session as governor coming to a close, Sam Brownback and the Republicanled Legislature have done noth-

ing to create jobs and grow the economy,” said Senate Democratic Leader Anthony Hensley of Topeka. “Instead, Sam Brownback is using his position as governor to push intrusive social issues that have wasted the Legislature’s time and the taxpayers’ money.” Taking office as governor in January, Brownback, a former U.S. senator, has signed into law new restrictions on abortion and requirements to have a photo ID and proof of citizen-

ship to register to vote. Brownback has held major news conferences and signing ceremonies to tout those measures. But at his news conference last week, Brownback focused on economic initiatives, including his proposal to waive state income taxes for people moving from out of state to counties with declining populations and changes to the Please see BROWNBACK, page 5A

Potter Lake celebrates centennial


Obama jeers Trump at dinner President Barack Obama exercised his revenge Saturday after weeks of attacks from his would-be Republican challenger Donald Trump, joking that the billionaire businessman could bring change to the White House, transforming it from a stately mansion into a tacky casino with a whirlpool in the garden. With Trump in attendance, Obama used the White House Correspondents’ Association annual dinner to mock the reality TV star’s presidential ambitions. The president said Trump has shown the acumen of a future president, from firing Gary Busey on a recent episode of “Celebrity Apprentice” to focusing so much time on conspiracy theories about Obama’s birthplace. After a week when Obama released his long-form Hawaii birth certificate, he said Trump could now focus on the serious issues, from whether the moon landing actually happened to “where are Biggie and Tupac?”

Soon Texas residents, too, might be able to display the Jayhawk logo proudly on their license plates. The design is up for public comment — though Kim Sue Lia Perkes, a spokeswoman for the Texas Department of Motor Vehicles, was quick to point out it’s not a vote. If it were, fans might have a little too much sway, she said. If, for example, a Texas Longhorn plate were up for a vote (it already exists), some schools might disapprove. “You might have a bunch of (Texas A&M) Aggie folks who might not take a shining to other schools’ plates,” Perkes said. A decision on the KU plate could be made by this summer. Of course, Texas residents should be somewhat used to a whole variety of license plate designs by now. That’s because My Plates, an outside vendor that contracts with the state, has created more than 80 different designs for Texans to choose from. The designs include several different college logos — including the Oklahoma Sooners, a noted University of Texas rival — and even companies like RE/MAX realty and Dr Pepper have submitted their logos for plate designs. Here’s how it works, said Kim Please see TEXAS, page 5A

LAW ENFORCEMENT REPORT • Kansas Highway Patrol troopers arrested two Topeka residents after a high-speed car chase from Topeka to Lawrence on Interstate 70 early Saturday morning, said Kansas Highway Patrol Lt. Phil Bostian. The chase began just after midnight after a trooper noticed a car with a poorly affixed license plate at the east Topeka toll plaza, Bostian said. The trooper ran the plate and found that it was not registered to the car, he said. When the trooper attempted to stop the car, around mile post 183 on the Kansas Turnpike, the car sped up and attempted to flee, reaching speeds greater than 100 miles per hour, Bostian said. The car attempted to exit at the West Lawrence exit at mile post 202 and ran into a ditch, he said. Three passengers were in the car, and two got out and started to flee on foot, Bostian said, and were quickly apprehended. The third passenger did not attempt to run from officers, he said, and was not arrested. A Taser was used on one of the men, who was resisting arrest, he said. No injuries were reported from the Taser use or from the car driving off the road, Bostian said. The driver, a 23-year-old Topeka man, was arrested on suspicion of driving while intoxicated, a felony fleeing, and eluding charge and seven outstanding warrants, Bostian said. The front seat passenger, also a 23-year-old Topeka man, was arrested on suspicion of obstructing legal process. • A 24-year-old Lawrence man was arrested Saturday evening after threatening people with a metal rod. According to Lawrence Police Sgt. Dave Hubbel, the incident occurred about 6:30 p.m. in the 900 block of Vermont Street.

Hubbel said the man threatened some people he did not know in the area. The people threatened contacted the police and the man was booked into the Douglas County Jail on charges of aggravated assault. There were no injuries reported during the incident.

INJURY ACCIDENTS • Two Olathe residents were transported to a Kansas Cityarea hospital after their motorcycle collided with a deer on U.S. Highway 56 Friday night just east of Baldwin City, according to a Kansas Highway Patrol accident report. Brian Oyer, 44, was driving the motorcycle that struck the deer just before 11 p.m. Friday about five miles east of Baldwin City, according to the report. Hospital officials said he was in critical but stable condition on Saturday morning. Janice Oyer, 46, was a passenger on the motorcycle and was treated for her injuries and released from the hospital. • A 28-year-old McLouth man was transferred to Lawrence Memorial Hospital following an injury accident near the intersection of Sixth and Kentucky streets in Lawrence early Saturday morning, said Lawrence Police Sgt. Ted Bordman. After 4 a.m., a 1997 Chevrolet Impala was traveling north on Kentucky Street at a high speed and couldn't make the turn onto Sixth Street, Bordman said. The car left the roadway and became airborne, landing on some brush and a retaining wall, coming to rest on an access road in Constant Park, he said. The driver complained of head pain and was transferred to LMH, but his injuries were not believed to be life-threatening, Bordman said. Kansas University Public

Safety officers heard the police's radio traffic and believed the car to be the same one involved in a brief car chase that began earlier in the 1400 block of Jayhawk Boulevard, Bordman said. KU Public Safety quickly discontinued the chase before stopping the car, Bordman said. Investigation into the case continues to see if alcohol was a factor, he said. The Journal-World does not print accounts of all police reports filed. The newspaper generally reports: • Burglaries, only with a loss of $1,000 or more, unless there are unusual circumstances. To protect victims, we generally don’t identify them by name. • The names and circumstances of people arrested, only after they are charged. • Assaults and batteries, only if major injuries are reported. • Holdups and robberies.

Steven MacEwan, KU student, Lawrence “Snakes.”

Donna Luckey, KU professor, Lawrence “Probably that we allow fear as a political issue and fear things that have nothing to do with reality.”

Bradley David Kohlman, 50, died of complications of cystic fibrosis April 25, 2011 at his home in Penngrove, CA. Brad was born August 12, 1960 in Albuquerque, NM. He grew up in Lawrence, KS, and graduated from Lawrence High School in 1978. Brad attended Kansas University in Lawrence and Brooks Institute of Photography in Santa Barbara, CA. Brad’s extensive career in the construction industry encompassed home construction, remodeling, interior finish, design and drafting. In 1978 Brad began work with Gene Fritzel Construction of Lawrence, KS, while attending the University of Kansas. After studying at Brooks Institute of Photography, Brad moved to Boulder, CO. He returned to Lawrence, KS in 1986 where he worked for both Gene Fritzel Construction and Joel Fritzel Construction and later started his own company, Avalon Building and Design. Because of his health, Brad and his companion Natasha moved to California in 1998 where he started BK Design, an architectural design and drafting company, working in various aspects of construction and design consulting until shortly before his death. Brad is survived by many who loved him dearly; his beloved long-time companion, Natasha Roembach; his parents, David and Linda Kohlman from Colorado Springs; his brother, Jeff, sister-inlaw, Dawn, and nephews,

Austin and Alex from Centennial, CO; 7 uncles; 8 aunts; 14 cousins and many in his Kohlman extended family. He was preceded in death by his grandparents, an uncle, and two cousins. Brad lived his life with purpose, integrity, a deep sense of responsibility, and an amazing ability to live well beyond the limitations of his disease, never allowing cystic fibrosis to define him. He was a gentle and creative man who loved life and had a sense of humor often expressed in his photography, art, and writing. He loved animals, flowers, gardening, and reading. He was a rock climber, skier, and hiker. Brad was a blessing to our lives. We all cherish him and will miss him deeply but find comfort in knowing that he is finally at peace. An informal gathering to celebrate Brad’s life will be held Saturday, May 14 at 3 p.m. at the Pioneer Cemetery on the West Campus of the University of Kansas. If you wish to make a donation to honor Brad’s life, we would suggest a donation to the Cystic Fibrosis FoundationColorado Chapter, 1355 S. Colorado Blvd.-Suite C200, Denver, CO 80222.

LAWRENCE CITY COMMISSION Agenda highlights • 6:35 p.m. Tuesday • City Hall, Sixth and Massachusetts streets • Sunflower Broadband Channel 25 • Meeting documents online at

Proposed downtown events would close streets BOTTOM LINE City commissioners on Tuesday will consider approving two events that will cause downtown streets to be closed.

A Step Above the Rest

BACKGROUND Commissioners are being asked to close a portion of the 900 block of New Hampshire Street from noon May 27 to 1 p.m. May 28 for the Lawrence Arts Center’s Street P’Arty event and the Art Tougeau Parade. The event would close New Hampshire from Ninth Street to just north of the southernmost entrance of the city’s parking garage. That would allow people to still use the garage. Commissioners also are being asked to close Massachusetts Street from North Park Street to South Park Street on Oct. 8 for the Rev it Up! Hot Rod Hullaballoo. The event will be a new one for Lawrence. It will feature an antique and street rod car show along Massachusetts Street with vendors located in South Park. The event would close the portion of Massachusetts Street adjacent to South Park from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m.

He is off and running on a series of economic summits and said he wants the state to go on the offensive in bringing more airplane manufacturing jobs to Kansas. As far as the Legislature goes, Brownback said legislators must approve a budget for the next fiscal year and reach agreement on dealing with the Kansas P ublic Employees Retirement System, which is facing funding problems in future years. The session is expected to last into mid-May. Brownback has given the Legislature good marks, say-

This ordinance is necessary in order to debt finance the proposed curb and sidewalk repair project in the downtown area. • Initiate Text Amendments to the City of Lawrence Land Development Code, Chapter 20, Articles 10 and 17, regarding synthetic turf. • Receive the applicant’s request to withdraw TA-6-8-10 regarding a text amendment to Chapter 20, Section 601 of the Land Development Code – Code of the City of Lawrence, Kansas to calculate studio, 1, and 2bedroom dwelling units as .5 dwelling units in the RM32 District. • Receive the Lawrence/Douglas County 2011 Point-In-Time Homeless Count. • Receive the 2011 first quarter report for the Bert Nash Outreach Program. • Authorize the Lawrence Cultural Arts Commission Community Arts Grants as recommended by the

ing it has tackled a broad range of issues with less acrimony than in other states. Of Democrats’ complaints that he is focused on social issues, Brownback said, “I think that is the Democrat focus — is on those other issues. They would like the public to believe that that is what the Legislature is focused on.” House Democratic Leader Paul Davis of Lawrence called that “Washingtonstyle spin.” Davis blames Brownback for attempts in the House last week to force the attorney general to f ile a lawsuit against a proposed $250 million resort and casino in south-central Kansas that promises to provide thousands of jobs. The effort failed last week in the House. And Democrats have

derided House Republicans for advancing again to the Senate new regulations on sexually oriented businesses. “We have a limited number of days left this session; how many more are we going to spend on bills that kill jobs and strip clubs before we reach an agreement on the budget?” asked assistant House Democratic Leader Rep. Tom Burroughs of Kansas City. Senate leaders have indicated they don’t want to deal with the sexually oriented business issue, but conservative Republicans, such as state Rep. Owen Donohoe, RShawnee, said that position will be used against senators when they run for re-election.

that’s typically between 35 and 40 percent, and some of the money goes back to the organizations themselves for lending their logos. Prisoners, Drummond said, still manufacture the plates. Colleges may choose how they use the funds, and companies may donate the revenue to a charity of their choice, Drummond said. The state doesn’t lose any of its

revenue outside of the portion of sales My Plates keeps. So far, people seem to have appreciated the program and new designs, which still have to be approved for legibility and reflectivity. “It’s just one more means of personal expression,” Drummond said.

Let’s move together! That’s the theme for the sixth annual Lawrence Arthritis Walk on Saturday. The walk raises awareness and money for the Arthritis Foundation, which funds research, health education and advocacy initiatives. The walk begins with registration at 8:30 a.m. at South Park, 12th and Massachusetts streets. There will be a health fair, breakfast and children’s activities. Pet owners can bring their dogs. Opening ceremonies are at 9:15 a.m., followed by the 3mile and 1-mile walks at 10 a.m. A recognition ceremony will follow the walks. There is no cost to participate, and it’s open to anyone. People who raise $100 get a Tshirt. For more information, visit or call 785-272-8461.

Wildflower Walk scheduled for May 22 The Kansas Land Trust will be having its perennially popular Wildflower Walk on May 22. It’s free and open to anyone. The walk begins at 1 p.m. just southeast of Lawrence on

the Akin Prairie. Kelly Kindscher, a KLT founder and author of Edible Wild Plants of the Prairie and Medicinal Plants of the Prairie, will lead the walk. The Akin Prairie, a 16-acre tract of native prairie, memorializes Dorothy Akin and her love of colorful prairie wildflowers. Akin’s surviving husband, Tom, and their children donated the conservation easement to KLT in 1994. Directions: Head two miles east of Lawrence on Kansas

Drug take-back program sees boost in participants over last year By Andy Hyland

More than 135 people participated in a prescription drug take-back program in Lawrence on Saturday, a number that increased over last year’s totals of about 100 people. P ublic safety off icers, along with other volunteers, set up a tent outside the Douglas County Judicial and Law Enforcement Center and collected unused drugs from anyone willing to drop them off. After collection, they will be incinerated by the Drug Enforcement Agency, said Douglas County Sheriff’s Sgt. Steve Lewis. In total, 229 pounds of drugs were collected this year, he said. That’s an increase of 49 pounds over last year’s total. It’s important to dispose of drugs properly, he said, because of an increasing concern for the environment and for the drugs’ potential to

become misused or abused by others in the home. The Controlled Substances Act limits the ways a person can legally dispose of unused prescription drugs, Lewis said. Throwing the drugs away can lead to their introduction into the water supply, where they can contaminate wildlife and the water. The program was sponsored by the Douglas County Sheriff ’s Office and the Lawrence Police Department, with assistance from the DEA and volunteers from Lawrence’s Sigler Pharmacy. The DEA is helping with similar programs across the country. Pat Hubbell, pharmacist for Sigler Pharmacy, said he thought that interest was increasing in the movement to p ro p e rly d i s p o s e o f drugs. “The volume of drugs keeps going up,” he said. “But it’s also the green movement.”

An astounding and mesmerizing experience

During times when public safety officers aren’t collecting pills, members of the public may make an appointment with the Douglas County Household Hazardous Waste Facility by calling 832-3030, but they have some limitations on the kinds of drugs they can accept. Narcotics and controlled substances, for example, aren’t allowed. Experts say proper disposal of drugs can be accomplished by crushing or dissolving pills in water, making a paste of the dissolved pills or liquid medication by adding it to kitty litter or coffee grounds. After creating the paste, it can be placed in a closed container and put in the trash. Anyone disposing of prescription drugs should make sure to remove labels that could identify them from the medication. — Higher education reporter Andy Hyland can be reached at 832-6388.

Future on mind of state archivist as much as past By Scott Rothschild

ONLINE: See the video at

You’d think an archivist would be focused on the past. But Matt Veatch, the state archivist at the Kansas State Historical Society, is looking toward the future. He works to ensure that both old and recent history is Veatch preserved in a way that can be easily accessed and researched by future generations. “We do that in order to k n ow w h e r e we c a m e from,� said Veatch, who lives in Lawrence and commutes every work day to h i s o ff i c e a t t h e S t a t e Archives and Library in Topeka. Veatch is in charge of pre-

Those include the original Wyandotte Constitution and 34 letters written by abolitionist John Brown. Increasingly, Veatch and his archivist counterparts across the nation have been working on making sure that records created digitally can

be viewed under today’s computer capabilities and preserved in a way so they can be accessed in the future. Veatch also is assistant director of the state archives and library division, which preserves letters, diaries, photos and maps to document the history and culture of Kansas.

Arensberg said. Brownback last week directed KDOT Secretary Deb Miller to reopen a study on the cable barriers on K-10 and to expedite a project to widen K-10 shoulders in Douglas County and install rumble strips. A local group including Lawrence and Eudora city officials will provide input on the cable median barrier study. But KDOT officials on Friday said that the cable barriers were not a “silver bullet” in being able to stop all crashes and that engineers studying the highway need to look at many issues when deciding whether to install the barriers. One consideration is, if medians on K-10 become narrower due to the cable, would it cause more accidents because drivers who normally can regain control instead collide with the barrier? “That’s why we’ve got to look at it all,” said Kim Qualls, a KDOT spokeswoman.

Cross-median crashes Ali Shutt, Cainan’s mother, Hopson and other supporters on the Facebook group asking KDOT to install the cables say K-10 has become alarmingly dangerous because of the number of cross-median fatality crashes. According to KDOT, from 2000 to 2010, of the 17 crashes that killed 19 people on K10 between Lawrence and Interstate 435, seven crashes involved cross-median collisions and two more were due to vehicles crossing the median. The causes cited in those crashes were: driver inattention and loss of control, twice; avoiding road debris, once; making an unknown evasive maneuver, four times; speeding during an avoidance maneuver, once; and driver inattention, once. Proponents of the cable barriers say they are worried because the April 16 accident followed an August crossmedian fatality crash near De Soto and another fatality accident in October when a woman was driving the wrong way for several miles. Other states have reported success with installing cable median barriers, and Jorma Duran, a Missouri Department of Transportation spokesman, said the agency estimates the cables save about 50 lives a year in crashes on all of the state’s four-lane highways. He said 400 people were killed in cross-median crashes statewide from 1996 to 2005, and cross-median crash fatalities have dropped to single digits per year since cable median barriers were installed on various four-lane highways starting in 2006.

But Jerry Younger, a KDOT deputy secretary and the state’s transportation engineer, said cross-median fatality numbers in Missouri were much higher than Kansas mainly because of high traffic rates and narrower medians. Younger said Kansas annually averages five cross-median crash fatalities on its entire 1,000 miles of four-lane divided highways. K-10 east of Lawrence to I435 in Johnson County also had fewer fatality accidents from 2000 to 2010 compared with roughly the same stretch of Interstate 70 to I-435, which has a concrete median barrier, on the Kansas Turnpike, according to KDOT statistics. K-10 over the 24.5-mile stretch had 2,840 total accidents, including 17 accidents that involved fatalities and 561 injury accidents, compared with 3,553 accidents on 23 miles of I-70 that included 19 accidents that involved fatalities and 746 injury accidents. On K-10, 19 people died in those crashes and 756 were injured, while 21 died on I-70 and 1,164 were injured. K-10, which is a major commuter corridor, also has an average daily traffic count in that stretch that is higher than I-70, which part of a crosscountry interstate highway that had higher amounts of commercial truck traffic, according to KDOT. From 2004-2008, the section of K10 averaged 33,568 vehicles per day compared with 31,075 on I-70, Qualls said. K-10’s fatality crash rate during that period was 0.56 per 100 million vehicle miles traveled, compared with 0.69 on I-70 and the average on all of the state’s highways of 1.23. Dean Sicking, a University of Nebraska civil engineering professor who studied the state’s four-lane highway system in 2008, said he considered the numbers on the two highways to be comparable. He said having a cross-median crash on I-70 would be rare compared with K-10 because of the concrete barrier in place, but he said fatality crashes still occur there for various other reasons.

K-10 traffic Area commuters who travel on K-10 daily said the recent cross-median crashes are a major concern along with what seems to be increasing traffic and the speeds that people drive. Patty Noland, who has commuted to Lawrence mostly as part of a daily car pool from her home in the Kansas City area since 1998, said K-10 seems to have become busier in the last 13 years. “The main thing I notice is just people speeding and going way too fast,” said Noland, who works in Kansas University’s School of Journalism. “I think that might be part of the problem, people going too rap-

L AWRENCE J OURNAL -WORLD idly and they lose control.” Noland said K-10 for the most part doesn’t seem to be overly dangerous, although she called the fatality accidents in recent months “alarming” and said it likely would be beneficial for the state to install the cable median barriers. Jim Hall, a Lawrence resident who drives to the Kansas City area for work, said law enforcement should focus more on the area, especially on violations such as tailgating other vehicles. “As law enforcement has gotten more relaxed, it has allowed people to be less stringent on their driving habits,” Hall said. Don Hughes, a technical trooper with the Kansas Highway Patrol, said troopers do try to patrol the highway and dedicate extra patrols to the area when they can. Greg Benefiel, an assistant Douglas County district attorney who prosecutes traffic and DUI cases, said he notices tickets for higher speeds on K-10 and for vehicles following too closely, which is a concern. “We see what I consider to be too many (speeding tickets) that are over 90 mph, and we even get the occasional one over 100 mph,” Benefiel said. Heather Helm, of Eudora, who has commuted for four years to work in Overland Park, said she worries that the amount of people speeding, coupled with possible distractions that drivers have, increases the chances for cross-median crashes and head-on collisions. She’s also skeptical that the median is enough space for some drivers to get stopped or correct their path before entering the oncoming lanes. “There’s no way if someone’s driving that fast,” she said. Troopers have said they are still investigating the cause of the April 16 crash, including the possibility that drugs contributed after a preliminary autopsy indicated marijuana, benzodiazepine and methadone were in Pittman’s system. Hopson and other advocates for cable median barriers said the recent cross-median fatality accidents demonstrate the need for a cable median to stop a vehicle of a driver that perhaps has lost control because of impaired driving or perhaps a medical issue. KDOT officials say that’s why they want local leaders to be able to provide input in the study. “It’s important that there will be a committee looking at it,” Qualls said, “and it will help definitely educate as well as address other things people are seeing that maybe just aren’t noted by the numbers.” — Reporter George Diepenbrock can be reached at 832-7144.

Fashion firms, inspired by royal wedding pieces, rush to make look-alikes NEW YORK (AP) — Fashion firms want a piece of the fairy tale. Seconds after Kate Middleton emerged from her car outside Westminster Abbey in a ball gown with lace sleeves, designers around the country, glued to their TV sets, were sketching her look, setting in motion a mad rush for massproduced versions that are expected to be in stores as

early as late June. For brides-to-be who can’t wait even four weeks, David’s Bridal, the nation’s largest bridal chain, was already trumpeting a strapless look from Oleg Cassini, paired with a lacy bolero jacket, on its website as an already available stand-in as it scrambled to push out modified knockoffs of the real thing to stores by September. Meanwhile, QVC said shop-

pers will be able to pre-order earrings inspired by the diamond drops worn by Middleton as early as Monday. Middleton, now the Duchess of Cambridge, didn’t break new fashion trends on Friday, but fashion experts say her elegant understated look is expected to bring back a new era of classic wedding dressing that was just starting to re-emerge in designers’ collections.

church volunteers from the 13 host churches and 21 other support congregations. The program, which started in 2008, requires families to look for full-time work or they won’t be able to stay. “Without Family Promise, I’m not sure how bright my future would be, because I’ve set goals and actually met them,” Bonecutter said. “I was really good at starting things and never finishing them.”

‘A safe place to go’ In 2010, 14 families were in the program in Lawrence, and every school in Lawrence had at least one homeless student. According to the National Center on Family Homelessness, 34 percent of the homeless population nationally are families. Valerie Miller-Coleman, executive director of Family Promise, recognized the problem in 2007 when she was an outreach specialist for the homeless, dealing specifically with families. In many cases, parents were wary of taking their children to a traditional shelter. So MillerColeman worked with Lawrence resident Joe Reitz to start the program. “It serves a vital need: the need to get those kids out of the back seats of cars and out of motel rooms,” she said. “At

HOW TO HELP Valerie Miller-Coleman said that often one of the biggest barriers to families in the program is the lack of affordable and reliable transportation. “We are happy to accept any and all cars that are reliable,” she said. The other need is volunteers to host families. Some volunteers will stay at churches overnight, for which Miller-Coleman requires training. The organization welcomes the same time, it does a lot to educate the community about the homeless population. It knits the community together.” Miller-Coleman said families must follow strict rules, including maintaining sobriety and passing a criminal background check for violent or sexual offenses. Families must be out of churches by 6:30 a.m., when they go to the day center. There they have access to computers for job searching, as well as shower and laundry facilities. They go back to the churches around 5:30 p.m., and everyone is expected to be on time to dinner. Most importantly, families should be comfortable, but not get too comfortable.

Higher property tax values go unnoticed by homeowners Property owners who believe their homes are being overvalued by the county can go through an appeal process. But that may not be as likely as you think. As the Journal-World attempted to contact the owners of several of the 28 homes sold in December that had values higher than their sales prices, it became apparent many weren’t aware of

the situation or just didn’t care. Kelvin Messerschmidt ended up being in both categories. His home in the 4800 block of West 24th Street is valued $24,100 above the price it sold for on Dec. 10. Messerschmidt, a mechanic who commutes to Topeka, wasn’t aware of that until told by the Journal-World, although the appraiser does send out a notice of value to all property owners in March.

I think Douglas County does a better job than most counties in Kansas CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1A of coming up with a fair what the homes sold for, even value.” though they sold just a few days prior to when the county appraiser set its value. The Journal-World then examined all the homes that had a closing date of December 2010 and compared the sales price of the property with the Jan. 1, 2011, appraised value set by the Douglas County Appraiser’s Office. Perhaps a quick reminder about our tax system here. Each county has an appraiser who is responsible for determining the property tax value of your home. The law states the tax value should be the fair market value of the property on Jan. 1 of each year. The Journal-World chose to look at December 2010 transactions because those sales closed just a few days before the Jan. 1, 2011, date. If you assumed the sales prices of the homes would be equal to the tax values, you assumed wrong. In fact, that was the least likely outcome. ● Of the 49 valid sales in December (we removed foreclosures because sales prices on foreclosures do get crazy), 28 of the homes had a tax value above the sales price. ● Eleven homes had a tax value under the sales price. ● The remaining 10 homes had a tax value equal to the sales price. To break the data down more, the Journal-World looked at how much above or below the sales price a property was valued at by the appraiser. ● Of the 28 homes that had a tax value higher than the sales price, the difference ranged from a low of 0.3 percent to a high of 30.7 percent. The median amount was 6.2 percent. ● Of the 11 homes with a tax value below the sales price, the difference ranged from negative 0.01 percent to negative 6.5 percent. The median was 1.4 percent. Douglas County Appraiser Steve Miles doesn’t dispute the numbers. He says that some of the homes that have values of 15, 20 or even 30 percent higher than the sales price might be successful in appealing their values and having them lowered. He doesn’t claim the model is perfect, and he says that his office could have incorrect information about a home (like it has three bathrooms instead of two) that would throw off a value. But Miles said homeowners should not expect to have the tax values of their homes lowered just because they can point to a recent sales contract that shows the property sold for less than the tax value. The system isn’t designed to work that way, he said. “If they bring in a sales contract, I have instructed my hearing officers not to change the value just on that basis,” Miles said. “They (Miles’ staff) are to do some more research and ask some more questions about the sale. But if the sale price and our value are pretty close, we’re probably not going to change it.” Miles said he can understand how that can be frustrating to property owners. After all, the home sold on the open market, and the system is trying to determine a fair market value. But he said the idea of a value isn’t that simple. To prove his point, he goes back to the grocery store. “A bag of oranges at Dillons

— David Harper, the acting director of the state’s Property Valuation Division may be one price, a bag of oranges at Checkers is another, and a bag of oranges at HyVee is another yet,” Miles said. “They’re all basically the same bag of oranges, so what’s the value?” ●●●

County appraisers are governed by a system set out in state laws. State officials say that the appraiser’s office in Douglas County does a good job of following it. “I think Douglas County does a better job than most counties in Kansas of coming up with a fair value,” said David Harper, the acting director of the state’s Property Valuation Division, which oversees many operations of county appraisers. But that doesn’t mean the Douglas County way of thinking is the only way of thinking. In talking with appraisers, you’ll find that there is a philosophical split in the profession. Miles and many other appraisers believe if you assume a sales price to be the home’s value, you run the risk of messing up your model over time. And that’s a big risk because, no matter what, an appraiser is going to rely on the model to value most properties in any given year. That’s because in a good year only 1,500 homes are going to be sold in Douglas County. Miles and his staff are responsible for putting a value on about 40,000 pieces of property. In the other camp is Mark Hixon, the Shawnee County Appraiser and a 29-year veteran of the profession. In Shawnee County, if you buy a home somewhere near Jan. 1 for $150,000, the chances are “very good” that your tax value for the next year is going to be exactly $150,000 or perhaps a little less than that (if the model says it should be less). But it would be rare that the tax value would be higher than the sales price if the sale occurred near Jan. 1. (If the sale were several months before Jan. 1, he might adjust the sale based on how the market has changed, but he would still use the sales price of the home as his foundation rather than a number generated by a model.) Hixon and those like him are sometimes referred to as “sale chasers” in the industry. That is considered a derogatory term in the profession, but Hixon doesn’t know why. “I think a sale is at the heart of what market value is,” Hixon said. “An arm’s length transaction typically is the best indicator of the value of a property.” Hixon points out that county appraisers likely don’t know as much about a particular piece of property as the buyer and the seller do. For example, county appraisers typically do not go inside of homes to assess their interior conditions. Buyers certainly do.

At first, Messerschmidt said the value did bother him. But the next day, he said it didn’t. Based on current tax rates, the higher value amounts to $342.53 per year in additional taxes Messerschmidt pays. That’s about $28 a month. Messerschmidt said he’s in the process of making improvements to his house, so he figures the value is bound to raise anyway, and maybe he’ll appeal then. Sometimes the dollars can be even higher than that and

not get a reaction. Allan Williams’ home in the 2900 block of Pebble Lane is valued $41,400 above the sales price. That’s about $590 a year in additional taxes. But Williams said the taxes are about what he expected, so he saw no need to appeal them. He said he thinks he got a deal on the house. He did buy it for about $40,000 less than its asking price. Some people are upset. Russ Lang, a Realtor with Lawrence’s RE/MAX Real

But then what happens when a neighbor of one of those homes, who has a very similar house, says his tax value ought to be the same as his neighbor’s? The model says it shouldn’t be, but now there’s one sale — Miles stresses just one sale — that says it should be changed. Miles says he can’t make himself do that. “If I could tell you the exact amount that everybody’s home was going to sell for, I would be a millionaire and would be sitting somewhere else,” Miles said. “But I can’t, so I have to be fair to everybody. I have to be fair not just to the person who recently bought a home but also the person next door who has no intention of selling their home. I have to look at all of them with the same eyeballs.” But he gets that it is frustrating. That frustration shows up in the form of property owners at his office more than he would like. “I just try to talk to those folks about the fairness to their neighbor argument,” Miles said. “But at that point, nobody’s really concerned about their neighbor. I’m not always successful in making people feel good about the process. That is for sure.”

Estate, said he has clients who are getting the short end of the stick. He has feuded with county appraisers on his own properties for years. “I don’t think they’re really looking at the sales totals,” Lang said. “I think they’re just doing something with their mathematical formulas instead of common sense.” Douglas County Appraiser Steve Miles disagrees with that. He said his office follows the sales prices of homes, all of which are

reported to his office through a questionnaire that must be filled out when a deed is filed at the courthouse. But Lang said he’s not surprised many people don’t appeal the values. “The average individual has a job,” Lang said. “They don’t have time to do their homework. They just take the county’s valuation as gospel.” — City reporter Chad Lawhorn can be reached at 832-6362. Follow him at

Carnegie divide Balancing uses in the former Carnegie Library is fine for now, but it would be great news for the city if the demands of being the center of a new national heritage area eventually take over the building.


ome problems are good to have. That seems to be the case at the former Carnegie Library building at Ninth and Vermont streets. The city has done a fine job of restoring the important public building and once again making it functional. In fact, it appears the building has become such an asset that there is some friction over who should use it and at what price. As we previously reported, the city recently raised the fee it charges to rent the facility on weekends by more than $400 after some private banquet business complained the city’s rate was below fair market value. Also, some concerns were expressed about whether the facility can function both as a banquet facility and as a home for the Freedom’s Frontier National Heritage Area. The group that runs the heritage area has its offices in the lower level of the building, and work on the building’s main floor to create permanent displays highlighting the region’s history will be completed in May. Whether the facility can serve as a visitors center for the heritage area and a banquet hall for weddings and other events is a legitimate question. In the short term, the answer is probably yes. But as a community, we should hope that the heritage area’s uses for the building grow to the point that there is room to do little else. Douglas County has a real opportunity to establish itself as the birthplace of the Civil War. In the late 1850s, the eyes of America were fixated on eastern Kansas and western Missouri. A great question hung over the country. The events that would take place in the hills and valleys surrounding Lawrence would go far in answering it: Would the institution of slavery embark on a westward march? It did not. It was here that slavery met its brick wall. It is important on many levels for Lawrence and the rest of the federal heritage area to tell that story and other stories related to the search for freedom. Being the center of Freedom’s Frontier could be a tremendous tourism boon for the local economy, but just as importantly, it is a strong reminder of the foundation upon which this city was built. Promoting Freedom’s Frontier is an appropriate core mission for the Carnegie building. At least for now, the building also can serve as a rental space for various local events. However, if interest and activities related to Freedom’s Frontier eventually take over the former library it would be a positive development for Lawrence and the surrounding area.

Obama re-election not a sure thing WASHINGTON — The conventional wisdom is that Barack Obama cannot be beaten. The root of this wisdom is the aphorism, sometimes attributed to former New York Gov. Benjamin B. Odell Jr. and sometimes to former House Speaker Joe Cannon, that you can’t beat somebody (Obama) with nobody (any one of the dozen Republican nobodies, male and female, Trump and trumped). The provenance of that aphorism, which puts it at the beginning of the 20th century, points to the fallacy of that aphorism. Since then, nobodies, or nearnobodies, have done fairly well. Five have been elected president since that time — in 1920, 1960, 1976, 2000 and 2008. Partisans of those five will howl in outrage at that characterization, but were Warren G. Harding, John F. Kennedy, Jimmy Carter, George W. Bush and Barack Obama substantially more established political figures the year before they were inaugurated than the current crowd of Republican possibles? Sen. Kennedy and Sen. Obama — both charismatic and eloquent campaigners — scored historic victories when they became the first Catholic and black presidents, respectively. But neither was an inevitable nominee, let alone a favorite, for the White House at the time the 1960 and 2008 campaigns began.

GOP has some howlers There are, to be sure, some howlers in today’s Republican field. But is Rep. Michele Bachmann, the tea party firebrand from Minnesota, more or less outside the American political mainstream than, say, Rep. Dennis Kucinich, who has run for president twice in Democratic primaries? Bachmann is part of a broader political movement that helped elect substantial numbers of

David Shribman important “Buttotherecall thing is that

presidential challengers almost always seem weaker until they get the nomination, when their influence and appeal grows.” House members last year and is an Iowa native, no small advantage. Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich of Georgia, whose prospects grow dimmer by the day as details of his personal life are examined, is only slightly less a has-been than was Sen. Mike Gravel of Alaska, a Democratic candidate in 2008. Both are historical relics; one brought to an end 40 years of Democratic rule in the House, and the other is remembered for placing the Pentagon Papers into the Congressional Record.

Nomination boosts stature But the important thing to recall is that presidential challengers almost always seem weaker until they get the nomination, when their influence and appeal grows. The very act of accepting a major party presidential nomination has the effect of one side of the mushroom in “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland,” which made her grow very tall indeed. Indeed, the Alice Effect transformed Kennedy from a senator taking on a sitting vice president

into a political powerhouse who, at his nominating convention in Los Angeles, spoke of a New Frontier. Consider the speech he delivered there in the Los Angeles Coliseum: “The New Frontier is here whether we seek it or not. Beyond that frontier are uncharted areas of science and space, unsolved problems of peace and war, unconquered problems of ignorance and prejudice, unanswered questions of poverty and surplus. It would be easier to shrink from that new frontier, to look to the safe mediocrity of the past, to be lulled by good intentions and high rhetoric ...” Had that speech been delivered by a junior senator on the Senate floor, it would have been remembered by nobody, except perhaps Theodore Sorensen, who helped write it. But today it is remembered as a signature speech of the era, and the phrase is indelibly imprinted on the American character. A presidential nomination has that effect, and whoever heads the GOP ticket next August will have that platform — and that stature. That’s why Obama’s re-election is not assured, despite the apparent weakness of the GOP field. That said, Obama has many advantages. First is the presidency, of course, which confers upon him a gravitas and glamour that no challenger can match. Then there is his robust fund-raising operation, which grows out of his residency in the White House and his efficiency in raising money. That was on full display during his 2008 campaign, and allowed him to conduct $35,800a-plate dinners like the one he held at the home of Jon Corzine, a former senator, governor and Goldman Sachs chieftain. Obama also has the power to control the political agenda, though in recent weeks he has ceded that

Unpalatable debt choices Nobody wants to deal with the debt right now. Not the president, because the choices are politically unpalatable to Democratic interest groups, and not the Republicans, because the longer the issue persists the better are their prospects in 2012. Otherwise the budget question could be resolved in 25 minutes of reasonable compromise involving the Social Security retirement age and tax caps, Medicare benefit levels and eligibility ages, military spending cuts, and a comprehensive overhaul of the income-tax system that would please both the left (by eliminating loopholes) and the right (by lowering rates). As St. Augustine would say if he were a member of the House: Give me budget discipline, but not yet. The Republicans also seem to be saying: Give me a 2012 frontrunner, but not yet. But they’ll have one soon enough, and when the eventual nominee walks onto the stage at the first debate next year, he or she will have the same podium and the same opportunity to score points as Obama. Of all the ladders of social mobility in America, none is steeper than a presidential nomination. It allows a nobody to become a nominee and thus a somebody in an instant’s time. The person who knows that better than anyone on Earth is ... Barack Obama. — David Shribman is executive editor of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

Store support To the editor: As a resident of the neighborhood served by the Mass. Street Dillons, I would like to thank our city commissioners for their vote in favor of allowing the store to be rebuilt. I am looking forward to shopping in a new, modern grocery store within walking distance of my home. I would urge the minority of my neighbors who are opposed to the new development to consider the consequences to our neighborhood of allowing the existing store — already the butt of jokes — to continue to deteriorate or to cease operation entirely. The new store will enhance my neighborhood’s quality of life as well as the economic vitality of our city. Mike Silverman, Lawrence

to the Republicans, who have made the deficit the defining issue of the time, drowning out the surprising notion that low interest rates have rendered the cost of serving the nation’s ever-bigger debt the lowest it has been in more than a dozen years. Still, the deficit remains a huge problem — and a huge drag on the Obama re-election campaign.


OLD HOME TOWN From the Lawrence Daily JournalWorld for May 1, 1911: “The High School students who danced at the Junior Prom after the regYEARS ular Prom was over were suspended this AGO morning from the High School for insubIN 1911 ordination. They were told that if they desired they might take their cases to the board of education meeting this evening. The suspension was for an indefinite period. Prof. Olney just sent 23 of them home and told them he would send for them when he wanted them.... Prof. Olney said that it was not a question of dance or no dance, but it was a question of dancing on that occasion. He said that this was the one occasion of the year when the classes mingled socially and that everyone should be encouraged to come and have a good time. It was not the best thing, he showed, to let this one occasion be turned into a dancing party and have the 75 per cent of the pupils shouldered aside for the 25 per cent who are dancers.”


Unfair burden

U.S. must adjust expectations Comparisons between the Roman Empire and America are commonplace but also of enduring interest to pessimists seeking the secrets of decline. One explanation for Rome’s fall is that it was overrun by barbarians. But barbarians were already on the inside, many of them fighting for the emperor, as historian Finley Hooper observed. Incessant warfare and plagues were factors. A shortage of manpower and depletion of the soil may have contributed to economic decline. The theory that seems most relevant to contemporary America is simple: The Roman Empire went bankrupt. Taxes soared even as the economy withered. People entered the civil service, where they could join the “tax-collecting units” oppressing those who still worked. Moreover, Rome became infected with a “loss of spirit,” wrote Hooper. Fear about the future pervaded the whole society. People felt that they had no say in their own destiny. The individual’s sense of responsibility “had been drained away by the increasing use of coercion by the government even for what seemed desirable goals at the time.” All those notes have a familiar ring today. We may not feed people to lions, but our governments

George Gurley

Our joyride on high octane consumption and corrosive debt is coming to an end.” are very good at dreaming up “desirable goals” — regulatory f ine-tuning of the cosmos, attempts to remove anxieties and discomforts from life. As with the Romans, the goals have outrun our means to pay for them. Increased longevity and technological advances have confounded the assumptions on which our entitlements were originally based. The money to pay for 30year retirements and limitless health care simply isn’t there. In short, our expectations have to change. Our joyride on high octane consumption and corrosive debt is coming to an end. We don’t need visionaries who prom-

ise to “change the world.” We need sober bean counters. We must live within our means. Politicians won’t save us. They’ll continue to promise free lunches while they demonize one another, as if the solution to our problems lay in a simple choice between Democrats and Republicans. Meanwhile, they’ll keep picking our pockets and distributing the proceeds to special interests. Standard and Poor’s recently downgraded the credit of the United States. Several states are headed towards bankruptcy. The rest of the world is gaining on us, but we still act as if we’re the only game in town. We beat our chests about “American exceptionalism” while China eats our lunch. Can we summon the same kind of energy and determination to face this challenge as we have in times of war? Or are we “exhausted” as the Romans were and so addicted to our entitlements that we’re incapable of reform? The image comes to mind of the Romans huddling inside their walls, while the conquering warlord stood at their gates, laughed at them and declared, “The thicker the hay, the easier it is mowed.” — George Gurley, a resident of rural Baldwin City, writes a regular column for the Journal-World.

To the editor: We join with Americans from coast to coast who are showing outrage and anger towards politicians in Washington who want to slash Social Security, turn Medicare over to insurance companies and decimate Medicaid. Members of Congress are being appropriately greeted with scores of angry constituents holding them accountable for their recent vote in favor of the House Republican budget. The United States can do better than providing generous benefits to highly profitable multinational corporations and the very wealthy while placing added burdens on people in the working and middle class, and the poor.

Tax collections show mixed results TOPEKA (AP) — Kansas collected 3 percent more in taxes in April than expected, the state Department of Revenue reported Friday, good news for legislators trying to finish the next state budget. The state House and Senate are negotiating over the final version of a $14 billion budget for the fiscal year beginning July 1. Legislators reconvened last week following a threeweek spring break and expect to wrap up the year’s business by mid-May. Overall, the state collected $732 million in taxes when it had anticipated $710 million. The state collected $470 million in individual income taxes in April, almost $35 million more than anticipated, or a surplus of 8 percent. But the Department of Revenue noted that it received one-time income tax payments from two taxpayers totaling $36 million, dampening the news. The department declined to identify the taxpayers. Sales tax collections fell short of expectations for the month by almost 5 percent. The state had expected to collect $175 million and took in $167 million, an $8 million deficit. Officials linked the shortfall to high gasoline prices.

KANSAS RECEIVER CHRISTIAN MATTHEWS (12) GATHERS THE TEAM in a huddle following the Kansas spring game on Saturday at Memorial Stadium.

Matthews’ TD catch “ highlights scrimmage By Matt Tait

At this point, it’s probably safe to pencil in Christian Matthews for a big play in next year’s spring game, too. Saturday, in front of 6,000 fans at Memorial Stadium, the Kansas University sophomore followed up last year’s game-winning touchdown grab with a highlight-reel TD haul that helped lead the Blue squad to a 17-6 victory against the White team. The catch, a 53-yarder in the second quarter that put the Blue team ahead, 17-0, came over two defenders, one of whom actually helped Matthews make the reception. “I just followed the corner to the ball,” said Matthews of senior cornerback Anthony Davis. “I had no idea where the ball was, but when he

made a break on it, I just went with him and went up and got it.” Matthews, who made just one catch for 41 yards all of last season after switching from quarterback to wide receiver the year before, was plenty pleased with the outcome. Senior quarterback Quinn Mecham, who finished 6-of-11 for 102 yards and a TD, but also was sacked four times, was more than pleased. “It was fun to throw,” Mecham said of the TD pass. “I kind of threw the ball a bit too far inside, but Christian made a great play. He’s a very explosive player, and he makes some incredible plays. I just told him, ‘Great catch, appreciate it, you saved my butt a little bit.’” Don’t just take the words of

It was fun to throw. I kind of threw the ball a bit too far inside, but Christian (Matthews) made a great play.” — KU quarterback Quinn Mecham, about his part of the highlight-reel touchdown

Marshall gains strength from team The hardest moments, Kansas University defensive end and cancer survivor D.J. Marshall said, came during the four-hour drives each way between Lawrence and Tulsa for 12 eight-hour chemotherapy treatments. “That was a lot of time to think to yourself, being in so much pain, having to drive Marshall myself and having to do it just to live,” Marshall said after performing well in the blue-white spring football game Saturday in Memorial Stadium. “That was a hard time.” Once he arrived at his des-

Nino Jackson, who lives in Ardmore, Okla., plays AAU basketball for the Compton (Calif.) Magic. How’d that marriage come about? “Connections,” Jackson, a 6foot-2, 175-pound junior point guard from Ardmore High, said with a smile Saturday. He’d just scored 14 points with four assists and three steals in Compton’s 7752 rout of Team Swish in a Jayhawk Invitational game at Lawrence High. “They saw me playing a little bit last year and asked me to come play with them,” added Jackson,’s No. 38ranked player in the Class of 2012. “It’s hard to practice now because school is still in (session), but after that, I’ll play with them more.” Jackson, who on Saturday listed KU, Baylor, Oklahoma and UNLV as his list of schools (he recently mentioned Texas and North Carolina as well), showed perfect shooting form Saturday in drilling a pair of three-pointers. What stood out most, however, was his athleticism and ability to race up and down the floor. “Yes,” he said, asked if he’s always the fastest guy on the court. “You’ve got to step it up, speed up more than anybody else to get it done.” Jackson showed a lot of personality Saturday, smiling a lot and talking a lot. “I’m just a cool kid. I like to play basketball, like to have a good time on the court,” said Jackson, who sat out most of the second half because of the lopsided score. “Talking to the refs makes the game more easy and more fun.

Though Laughlin said he didn’t worry about the matchup, coach Brad Stoll said he thought Laughlin’s aggressive attitude on the mound was the difference. Using a hard slider and sharp fastball, Laughlin attacked the Hawklets on the inner-half of the plate, forcing them to jump back several times.

Chiefs add depth with Colorado CB By Doug Tucker Associated Sports Writer

KANSAS CITY, MO. — The Kansas City Chiefs drafted someone from Hog Hammock and someone from Yale. They took a guy who used to make his living frying chicken and a guy who worked in a jail. Most of all, says Scott Pioli, they went a long way in the 2011 draft toward improving their team, both near-term and long. “We believe we accomplished something that we’ve talked about consistently when we first started here,” the Chiefs’ third-year general manager said. “We became a bigger, stronger, faster, smarter, tougher football team through this draft.” With their first three picks over the first two days, the Chiefs focused laser-like on their three

most pressing needs — offensive line, wide receiver and outside linebacker. With five selections in the final rounds Saturday, K.C. focused on depth and long-term projection. Jalil Brown, a 6-foot-2, 204pound cornerback and threeyear starter at Colorado, was chosen in round four. Starters Brandon Flowers and Brandon Carr are both young, ascendBrown ing players, and Flowers is considered one of the top young defensive backs in the league. But the Chiefs’ depth at that crucial position is suspect. A quarterback, always a popular choice among fans, was the decision with the first of two fifth-

round selections. Ricky Stanzi of Iowa could replace Brodie Croyle as Matt Cassel’s backup. He threw for 3,004 yards and 25 touchdowns last year and had only six interceptions. “We know Matt’s our starting quarterback, but behind that, we don’t know what the situation is going to be,” Pioli said. “Philosophically, I like the idea of trying to get a quarterback every year. In my previous stops, we’ve had some success with mid- and lateround quarterbacks that have developed.” Gabe Miller, a 257-pound linebacker from Oregon State, went to the Chiefs with their second pick in the fifth round. With their sixthround choice, the Chiefs took Jerrell Powe, a huge defensive tackle whose weight fluctuates from about 320 pounds to around 345 pounds.


The third player from Mississippi the Chiefs have drafted in three years, Powe supported himself in 2005 working in a local jail. With their choice in round seven, the Chiefs took a true sleeper in Yale fullback Shane Bannon. The 6-2, 245-pounder did not have any carries this past season and did not show up on anybody’s radar until just a few weeks ago. He did catch 13 passes for 122 yards and sees himself as a blocking back in the NFL. “No one knew about him because he didn’t have an agent,” Pioli said. “Once he had an agent, we did some research on him. Everyone on our offensive coaching staff took a look at him. Where people are picked doesn’t necessarily have anything to do with how they’re going to perform in the National Football League.”

Hoops version of Ali-Frazier? Heat-Celtics By Mike Berardino Sun Sentinel

Don’t be fooled by what the calendar says. This is it. Pro basketball’s version of Ali-Frazier. Obama-Trump. Goodell-Smith. Yeah, I know, this is technically only a second-round matchup in these thrill-aminute NBA playoffs. And, no, the Heat can’t win a championship by vanquishing the proud Celtics over the next two weeks. But Erik Spoelstra’s team can’t gain the ultimate prize without surviving this longawaited matchup, either. Beat the Celtics, and most of the pressure comes off the Heat. LeBron James will have finally clawed past his tormentors after two previous disappointments at this same stage. Better still, he may end the seasons of two former Cleveland teammates, Delonte West and Shaquille O’Neal. Beat the Celtics, and Dwyane Wade won’t have to hear anymore about his obvious shooting problems against Ray Allen and friends. Don’t think for a second D-Wade has forgotten how the Celtics knocked him out of the playoffs in Round 1 last year or how they beat the Heat in seven of their past nine meetings. Beat the Celtics, and the Heat starts to play with house money. Championship or bust? Yeah, sure. Eventually. But not this year. Not with Joel Anthony still getting the bulk of the minutes at center and point guard a nightly mystery. Instead, for the Heat, Year 1 of this experiment has always been about making it to at least the Eastern Conference finals. The top-seeded Chicago Bulls figure to await the winner. Lose to expected league MVP Derrick Rose in the conference finals, especially with a potential Game 7 in Chicago, and where’s the shame in that? Ah, but fall to the creaky Celtics at this stage, and so many dangerous questions go back on the table. Is LeBron too proud? Is Wade too unselfish? Is Chris Bosh too soft? Was it really the best idea to bring these three particular stars together? Is Miami Thrice flawed in a way Boston’s power trio never has been? Is Spoelstra really the right coach? Or should Pat Riley hand the reins to somebody more accomplished? And if a sideline change is indeed made, what would it take to get Doc Rivers to walk away from an aging Boston roster to tackle a new challenge, to work for the man who coached him with the Knicks back in the ’90s? Those enough ramifications for you? So don’t be fooled by the calendar. This is it.




G. Mason hires ex-Ga. Tech coach Hewitt FAIRFAX, VA. — After losing a Final Four coach to the Atlantic Coast Conference, George Mason got one in return. The Patriots on Saturday hired former Georgia Tech coach Paul Hewitt to replace Jim Larranaga, who left this month for the University of Miami. Hewitt was fired by Georgia Tech last month. He took the Yellow Jackets to the Final Four in 2004, but that was the only season he had a winning record in ACC play. He went 190-162 over 11 years at the school and was 72-104 in the conference. Georgia Tech went 13-18 this season and failed to sell out any games at its 9,100-seat arena.

COLLEGE FOOTBALL L, SOUTH KOREA — Sweden’s Alexander Klein goes off at KSU spring game NoSreEnOUcompleted a 5-under 67 today for a MANHATTAN — Collin Klein seemed to pull away from a crowded pack in the race for starting quarterback during Kansas State’s spring game on Saturday. Klein hit 25 of 37 passes for 358 yards and five touchdowns, including a short toss to Chris Harper in the final seconds that tied the score 37-all. The extra point gave the Purple squad a 38-37 victory over the White squad. Klein outperformed Sammuel Lamur, Justin Tuggle and Sam Johnson. In addition to gaining a clearer picture of the quarterback competition, the 8,594 fans on a cloudless day also got their first look at Wichita brothers Arthur and Bryce Brown, who have transferred back to their home state after starting their careers at other schools. Bryce Brown, who transferred from Tennessee, finished with 73 yards and two touchdowns on 13 carries. Linebacker Arthur Brown, the elder of the brothers and a transfer from Miami, had five tackles in the first quarter and totaled 14 for the game.

Simpson had five straight birdies in a 67 to match Watson, who has had at least a share of the lead after all three rounds, at 12-under 204 at TPC Louisiana. Watson needed to birdie the 588-yard 18th to get into the final group today.

KU rally falls short Ben Ward Journal-World Sports Writer

Kansas University’s softball players always manage to come off the field with smiles on their faces. Even during a tough Big 12 schedule and seemingly crushing losses — like Saturday’s 3-2 setback to No. 22 Texas A&M at Arrocha Ballpark — the Jayhawks are focused on moving forward. “It could have been amazing, but it was still a great game,” KU senior pitcher Allie Clark said. Clark was referring to a near-comeback win by the Jayhawks, who trailed 3-1 heading into the bottom of the seventh inning. Laura Vickers and Ashley Newman opened the frame with back-to-back singles and were moved over by a sacrif ice bunt from Alex Jones to set the table for Maggie Hull. Hull — who blasted a third-


good time. If you have fun when you are playing, your game will come right to you.” Jackson, who averaged 18 points a game his junior season of high school, says he’ll take official recruiting visits in the fall. Where does KU stand? “I’m a KU fan,” Jackson said. “I’m still weighing my options. It’s hard, but the recruiting stuff is kind of fun.”

inning homer off the scoreboard in left-center field to tie the game 1-1 — blooped a single to right, scoring Vickers and pulling KU within one run with the middle of the order up. But Mariah Montgomery popped the first pitch up to first, and Kocon was called out on strikes to end the game and KU’s potential rally. “All we ask is to get our best hitters up in pressure situations, and we had them up,” coach Megan Smith said. “Maggie came through, (Montgomery and Kocon) didn’t. But they will tomorrow. “We put ourselves in position to win the game, and against a tough team like (Texas) A&M, that’s what we wanted.” Sure enough, the Jayhawks weren’t down on themselves after the hard-fought contest. Instead, KU stayed on the field and celebrated Senior Day for Clark and Brittany Hile.

Clark tossed one of her best games of the season, throwing a complete game with a season-high eight strikeouts. She did surrender seven hits and walked seven, but mostly worked out of further damage, aside from giving up two-out RBI singles in the fifth and sixth. “(She was) phenomenal,” Smith said. “She was in control. She was going right at the hitters. She was smart.” Clark admitted to being f ired up for Senior Day, though she said she tried her best to put it out of her mind. When the Jayhawks threatened to tie in the seventh, Clark said she was about ready to charge the field and celebrate a win. “There’s tomorrow,” Clark said. “We’re going to go after it tomorrow.” KU and A&M will finish the two-game series at noon today.

Bender in no way influenced his decision to attend KU. “If I (listened to Bender), I wouldn’t be going to Kansas,” Anderson told ESPN. “I don’t know him real well. I talked to him maybe a few times, maybe sent him a message on Facebook a few times. He stopped by (team hotel), said he had mail for me from other schools. I chucked it. I’m going to Kansas.” It is not against NCAA rules for prospects to speak to individuals with ties to agents (sometimes known as “runners”) as long as they do not accept improper benefits. ESPN did not allege Anderson accepted benefits, but quoted anonymous sources as saying Anderson stayed in Louisville a couple weeks this school year with former Louisville football player Rodney Carter. Anderson acknowledged to ESPN that Carter is “a good friend.” While in Louisville, allegedly staying with Carter, Anderson took an unofficial visit to Kentucky. Bender — he’s been tied to various college prospects according to ESPN — said he hasn’t broken any NCAA rules. “I haven’t done anything wrong,” Bender told ESPN. “If a kid calls me and says, ‘Brandon, help me find a school,’ I'll do it. I’m trying to do the right thing. I don’t want any distractions. I just want to get into college coaching.”

Lacey not in town: Trevor Lacey, a 6-3 senior from Butler High in Huntsville, Ala., did not make his off icial recruiting trip to KU this weekend. His home state was devastated by tornadoes earlier this week. Lacey, who is down to KU, Kentucky, Alabama and Auburn, has yet to reschedule his visit. ●

Johnson led off with a double. Johnson moved to third on an inf ield single by Troy Willoughby and scooted home on a wild pitch. “That’s just what he does,” Stoll said. “I think that set the tone for our guys.” The Lions and Hawklets traded zeros on the scoreboard 1 for the next 2 ⁄2 innings, fulfilling the pregame expectation of a pitchers’ duel. “At one point, I thought that game was going to last about 48 minutes,” Stoll said. Things changed in the bottom of the fourth.


scholarship, then changed his mind and made an oral commitment to Kansas before ultimately signing with Iowa. Recruited as a tight end, Ballard started his Hawkeyes career at defensive end and eventually moved to defensive tackle. Ballard, the 106th overall selection in the draft, did not develop a reputation as a bigtime playmaker at Iowa, which meant he had to have extraordinary numbers at the NFL combine to move into consideration for the first round. Many who saw him sprinting for Free State in the 4x100 relay figured he might accomplish that. He didn’t help himself a great deal at the combine, however, running a fast, but

Corbin Francisco, Matt Sutliffe, Aaron Gile and Shane Willoughby all singled to open the inning and later scored. Jake Vinoverski and CJ Roush also singled and scored on fielding errors by Rockhurst. Weiler picked up two groundouts to escape the inning, but he didn’t come back to pitch in the fifth. The six-run inning gave Laughlin all the breathing room he would need. The long inning forced him to sit on the bench for a long time, though, somewhat breaking his rhythm. The Hawklets responded with two runs in the top of the fifth and scored one in

unspectacular 4.75 time in the 40-yard dash. His vertical leap of 31-01⁄2 inches was the best among defensive ends. At the Iowa pro day, Ballard ran 4.70 twice and improved his vertical leap to 34 inches. The potentially most damaging test result wasn’t measured in inches. Fox Sports reported that Ballard and Georgia outside linebacker Justin Houston tested positive for marijuana at the combine, a concern for some teams given that all athletes know they will be tested for it at the combine. Regardless of that reported misstep, Saturday was a proud day for the Free State athletic department. “Christian’s a good kid,” Firebirds athletic director Mike Hill said. “A lot of people make mistakes, and I don’t know any particulars. All I know is what I read in the paper, and I’m not going to

make any judgments on somebody based on what I read in the paper. I love him to death. I think the world of him, and I think he’ll do the right thing.” Vikings coach Leslie Frazier was asked about the failed drug test at a post-draft news conference Saturday. Frazier said the team’s security staff had done “a great job, along with our coaches, of delving into every player’s background.” He added, “I feel good about all the guys we’ve selected from a character standpoint.” Frazier said he plans to use Ballard first on the inside of the line, but will slide him outside at times. “He’s one of those rare commodities, when you talk about big men,” Frazier said. “I mean, he moves extremely well, and that flexibility should really help our defense.”

the seventh, but the final result was never in doubt. Stoll was proud of his team’s ability to respond to the challenge. He said he truly believes his team is one of the best in the state. “Without a doubt,” Stoll said. “That’s what we tell them every day.” Laughlin said the Lions are getting eager for the postseason, which starts in a little more than two weeks. “We’re ready to get in there and prove we can win state this year,” Laughlin said.

Westar Energy, Inc. and Kansas Gas and Electric Company


ON RECOVERY OF COSTS TO BE INCURRED FOR THE LA CYGNE ENVIRONMENTAL RETROFIT Kansas City Power & Light Company (KCP&L) filed a petition with the Kansas Corporation Commission (Commission) for determination of the ratemaking principles and treatment that will apply to recovery in rates of the cost to be incurred by KCP&L for environmental upgrades to its La Cygne Generating Station. Kansas Gas and Electric Company (KGE), a wholly owned subsidiary of Westar Energy, Inc. (Westar Energy) (hereinafter referred to collectively as Westar), has a 50% interest in the La Cygne Generating Station and will be responsible for 50% of the cost of these environmental upgrades. Public Hearing The Commission has scheduled one public hearing to allow Westar’s customers the opportunity to ask questions and make comments about the proposal: Tuesday, May 10, 2011, 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. at Kansas Corporation Commission, 1500 SW Arrowhead Rd., Topeka, KS 66604-4027 Or by video conference: WSU Eugene M. Hughes Metro Complex, Sudermann Commons Room, 5015 E. 29th North (entrance C), Wichita, KS 67220 or KansasWorks, 203 N.10th St. (entrance on 10th St.), Salina, KS 67401 Part I of the hearing will be an information session with presentations by the parties, allowing time for questions from the public. Part II will allow the public to make comments on the record to the Commissioners. Westar’s customers unable to attend the public hearing may submit comments to the Commissioners through June 8, 2011. Comments should reference Docket No. 11-KCPE-581-PRE and be emailed to, made over the phone at 1-800-662-0027, or mailed to: Kansas Corporation Commission Office of Public Affairs and Consumer Protection, 1500 SW Arrowhead Rd., Topeka, KS 66604-4027. In the event State of Kansas offices in Topeka are closed due to inclement weather, the public hearing may be canceled without further notice. KCP&L’s Proposal and Effect on Westar’s Customers KCP&L’s petition in this case includes a request for predetermination of ratemaking principles that will apply to the recovery of its portion of the costs to be incurred for the environmental upgrade of its La Cygne power plant. The La Cygne Generating Station is comprised of two coal-fired units. Unit 1 has a net generating capacity of 736 MW and Unit 2 has a net generating capacity of 682 MW. KCP&L is responsible for operating both units. Westar, through KGE, owns 50% of La Cygne and will be responsible for 50% of the cost of the environmental upgrades proposed by KCP&L. In its petition, KCP&L states that significant investment in environmental equipment and a common chimney for both La Cygne units is needed in order to meet current and pending environmental rules and regulations. Westar supports KCP&L’s decision to make this investment in environmental upgrades at La Cygne and supports KCP&L’s request for predetermination. The estimated total cost of these investments is $1.23 billion for the total project excluding Allowance for Funds Used During Construction (AFUDC) and property taxes. Westar will be responsible for $615 million of this amount. If KCP&L’s request for predetermination is approved, Westar will seek to recover its portion of the costs through its Environmental Cost Recovery Rider (ECRR). If the Commission allows Westar to recover these costs through its ECRR, the change to Westar’s ECRR as a result of the proposed environmental upgrades at La Cygne is estimated by Westar to impact the average residential customer’s bill (use of 10,800 kWh/year) by approximately $0.36/month, gradually increasing to $3.95/month in 2017 and 2018, and then gradually decreasing to about $1.50/month over a 20-year period. More Information Any person requiring special accommodations at the hearing under the Americans with Disabilities Act needs to provide notice to the KCC at least 10 days prior to the scheduled hearing by calling 1-800-662-0027 or emailing A complete copy of KCP&L’s petition and supporting testimony is available on the KCC’s website at:

Eight-run eighth sinks Twins, 11-2

Dr. Franklin

LUBBOCK, TEXAS — Jamodrick McGruder’s grand slam in the bottom of the sixth sparked Texas Tech to a 9-4 Big 12 Conference baseball victory over Kansas University on Saturday. KU, which has lost three straight, fell to 20-23 overall, 9-11 in the Big 12. Tech improved to 27-19 and 8-12.

Kansas junior Zac Elgie went 3-for-5 with a two-run homer and two doubles as the Jayhawks outhit the Red Raiders, 13-10. Senior Casey Lytle added three hits for KU. Trailing 5-2 in the sixth, KU cut the lead to one on a sacrifice fly by Jimmy Waters and an RBI single by Lytle, following Elgie’s third hit of the day.

However, that was as close as the Jayhawks came. After relief pitcher Wally Marciel loaded the bases with a double, bunt single and a walk, McGruder delivered the deciding blow with a shot into the Kansas bullpen. Tech closer Jon Neely held KU scoreless over the final 22⁄3 innings. The series finale will be at 1 p.m. today.

Adcock (1-0), a Rule 5 pick from the Pittsburgh Pirates who had never pitched above Class A ball before this season, worked a scoreless seventh to claim the victory. “It’s very exciting,” Adcock said. “I got a lot of high fives. It’s a good feeling.” Left-hander Brian Duensing (2-1) took the loss, giving up three runs, two

earned, and eight hits in seven innings, while striking out six and walking two. The Twins have lost five straight. Getz led off the seventh with a line drive to left that Rene Tosconi attempted to make a diving catch, but the ball got past him and rolled to the fence. Getz wound up at third, only his third extra-base hit of the season. He scored on Aviles’ sacrifice fly to put the Royals ahead, 3-2. “When I hit it, I was hoping it would drop and was thinking single,” Getz said. “When it got past him, I was off to the races.” The Twins, who have scored an American Leaguelow 82 runs, failed to take advantage of seven walks issued by Royals starter Sean O’Sullivan, who had not pitched since April 21. Jason Kubel had two of Minnesota’s three hits. “A little bit of it was definitely rust and I spent most of last night bent over the toilet — I think it was a little food virus — so I was a little jelly leg out there,” O’Sullivan said. “I felt like I made some pitches when I had to. I didn’t want to give into guys when I got behind. That was the definition of being effectively wild.”

Big inning lifts K.C. K A N S A S C I T Y , M O . ( AP ) — Leading by one in the eighth inning, the Kansas City Royals got an insurance run and then kept adding on. Alex Gordon hit a three-run homer in Kansas City’s eightrun inning, and rookie righthander Nate Adcock picked up his first major-league victory as the Royals beat the Minnesota Twins, 11-2, Saturday night.

But it just kept piling on, piling on.” Soria warmed up early in the inning but sat down when Gordon homered to make it 10-2. “Gordo’s been great all year long,” Yost said. The inning also included Chris Getz’s run-scoring infield single, Mike Aviles’ bases-loaded walk and Jeff Francoeur’s RBI double. Morneau’s fielding miscue permitted two runs to score. The eight-run inning was the Royals’ largest since June 14, 2007, when they scored eight in the second inning against St. Louis. “You’d rather go into the ninth inning more than a onerun lead, that’s for sure,” Getz said.

May, and he participated in all 15 practices this spring. His weight, which had dropped to 205, is back to 235, his body fat back to 6 percent. Marshall said his ligaments “became real loose,” because of the chemotherapy. “I still have to get my legs back under me,” he said. “I think my strength is getting up there, and I can only look to get stronger. I’ve lost some speed because of everything that was going on, but I still feel like I’m one of the fastest linemen that we have here. I want to be our fastest and strongest lineman. I can get there one day.” Marshall, who has three seasons of eligibility remaining, said teammates, especially fellow defensive linemen, always made supportive phone calls to him when he wasn’t feeling up to attending team meetings or practices. The inspiration has been mutual. “He’s a person who defines perseverance, determination, never giving up,” KU coach Turner Gill said. “I think that’s what our players have seen in him. They have seen it, and I have seen a little bit. There were times when he was distraught, wanting to give up, crying. And then to see where he’s at today — he still has a ways to go as far as from a football standpoint of being ready to be a starter and all that — but it’s great to see where he’s at.” Knowing he could count on constant support from teammates, Gill said, was “what he needed in his life. I know we’ve given him that.” And Marshall has given fellow players a reason to play through pain. “My teammates keep me in the back of their minds, the back of their hearts,” Marshall said. “When they’re in their pain, the pain that I was going through makes their bumps and bruises not really as bad as they could be.”


the pitcher and the catcher as explanation of how big the long bomb was on Saturday. Shortly after the scrimmage wrapped, coach Turner Gill huddled with his players and asked them to pick the play of the game. The overwhelming majority lobbied for Matthews’ leaping grab. Overall, the KU offense was fast, crisp and productive on Saturday, completing 22 of 38 passes for 286 yards and two touchdowns and rushing for 138 yards on 34 carries. Sophomore QB Jordan Webb got the scoring started with a 13-yard touchdown pass to D.J. Beshears on the Blue team’s first drive. And sophomore place kicker Ron Doherty connected on three of four field goals and both extra points. “I think our tempo today was excellent,” said Webb, who led KU with 108 yards on 8-of-14 passing. “It might have been the best we’ve had this whole spring, and I think that was good especially because it was a spring game. That’s when you want to be your best.” Added Gill: “I think our offense, particularly when Jordan Webb was in the game, did some good things. I liked the tempo in the huddle, getting out to the line of scrimmage, getting plays called, getting lined up and executing.” Defensively, the Jayhawks were equally as impressive if only for their ability to keep up with the rapid-fire pace of the offense. Red-shirt freshman Pat Lewandowski, who received an extended trial run at his new position of defensive tackle, logged the most reps of just about anyone. “I was tired,” said Lewandowski, who finished

with three tackles. “The tempo threw me off, and I was tired, but I played through it, and I thought everyone did a good job with that.” Junior-college transfer Malcolm Walker led the defense with seven tackles, and 11 other Jayhawks finished with at least three tackles. That included sophomore safety Bradley McDougald, who made a couple of the game’s biggest hits. Defensive linemen John Williams and D.J. Marshall each tallied a pair of tackles in the backfield, while Toben Opurum, Tyler Patmon and Shane Smith also recorded tackles for losses. Although Saturday’s stats largely were fun to review, a couple of the team’s veterans cautioned against reading too much into them. “It’s hard,” Webb said. “We didn’t show everything on offense, and the defense d i d n’ t s h ow eve r y t h i n g either. But we competed, and we played with a lot of passion.” Added Opurum: “It was just another spring scrimmage for us, but it was nice to have the fans out there. While it’s nice for everyone to get a look at what we have been working on, we still have a ways to come. We left (out) a lot of stuff from the playbook. It will be a completely different looking team in the fall.” For some, Saturday’s spring finale was the reward for a month’s worth of hard work. The day, which some said felt just like any Saturday in the fall, started with position meetings, a gameplan, a pregame speech, headphones and hype. It ended with a lot of grins and a consensus opinion that KU was in much better shape at the end of this spring than it was a year ago. “There’s no doubt that we’re a better football team than we were last year,” Gill said.

Beshears 13-yard pass from Jordan Webb. Ron Doherty kick. (Blue 7, White 0). KU’s first touchdown of the spring came on its sixth play from scrimmage, as the Jayhawks drove 65 yards on five runs before the passing TD. Webb scrambled for 30 yards on the drive, and KU also ran a reverse to D.J. Beshears on the game’s opening play.


Ron Doherty 21 yard field goal. (Blue 10, White 0). This drive was the Darrian Miller Show as the freshman running back ran four consecutive times (for 23 yards) to set up the field goal. Webb was 2-for-2 through the air on the drive, and James Sims also had a carry. Second Quarter Christian Matthews 53-yard pass from Quinn Mecham. Doherty kick. (Blue 17, White 0). After KU’s first-team defense stood tall and forced the blue team, now run by Mecham, into a three-and-out, the coaches allowed Mecham and company to retain possession. They did not disappoint. Mecham’s bomb to Matthews was the highlight of the game, and it capped a 12play drive that also featured a 12-yard completion to Jimmay Mundine and a 26-yard toss to Beshears. Doherty 37 yard field goal. (Blue 17, White 3). Playing for the white team this time, Webb marched the Jayhawks to a field goal just before halftime. The sophomore QB hit Connor Embree with back-to-back completions and also floated one up to sophomore Erick McGriff. Deshaun Sands carried twice for four yards. Third Quarter Doherty 28 yard field goal. (Blue 17, White 6). Red-shirt freshman Blake Jablonski led this scoring drive of 14 plays, which featured several key third-down conversions. Jablonski spread the ball out to four different receivers, and Ryan Burton ran four times for nine yards and also caught one pass for seven yards. Ted McNulty also contributed with a 13-yard reception on a perfectly lobbed ball to the sideline.

Subject to application and approval. The Annual Percentage Rate is subject to change and will vary depending on loan term and fees. Contract rate will be .25% higher if the payments are not automatically deducted from an INTRUST Bank Checking Account. Disclosed APR assumes a $26,000 loan with a $100 origination fee. For example: A $26,000 loan with a contract interest rate of 3.99% would require 60 monthly payments of $480.55, resulting in an APR of 4.15%.

45 Feline greeting

Estranged dad’s death certificate should be public Dear Annie: My daughter will soon be 16. Her father and I were never married, and we had broken up by the time she was born. When my ex discovered I was pregnant, he threatened to take the baby away and never let me see her. So I left him when I was six months along. Due to some complications during delivery, my mother filled out the birth certificate. Since my mother never liked my ex-boyfriend, she made no reference to him and put down my name only. I tried to contact my ex after our daughter was born and got his mother instead. She told me no one believed her son was the father, and she would not help me get in touch with him. She also refused to give me any family medical history, saying it was irrelevant since they “weren’t related.” My plan was to take our daughter to his hometown when she turned 16 so she could get to know her father and his relatives. I recently found out that my ex passed away a few years ago. He was only 37. I do not know the cause of death and worry that my daughter has inherited something fatal. How can I get a copy of the death certificate? Is there another way to get this information? His family refuses to answer my calls. — Mom of a Mystery Daughter

‘Masterpiece’ hits mark with Depression-era piece Dear PBS: Will the Depression ever end? Even fans of British period pieces must be getting tired of the Depression and war years. Over the past months and years, “Masterpiece” (8 p.m., PBS, check local listings) has served up a steady diet of shows set in the 1930s and ’40s. Throw in the recent big-screen movie “The King’s Speech” and you get the feeling that we’ve never quite gotten over the abdication of King Edward VIII. Are there no other periods to explore? All that said, “South Riding” delivers all that viewers usually look for in a “Masterpiece.” Anna Maxwell Martin (“Bleak House”) stars as Sarah Burton, a native of a Yorkshire village who returns home in her 30s in the mid-1930s to become the headmistress of a girls high school. Unmarried and strident, she belongs to a generation of women whose fiancees, husbands and boyfriends died in the trenches of World War I. Her outspoken opposition to militarism and jingoism raises eyebrows among the local gentry, most notably a handsome landowner, Robert Carne (David Morrissey), a veteran and super patriot who appears to despise Burton on sight. Not to reveal too much, but one set of strong feelings soon gives way to another. Beautifully shot and stuffed with period details, “Riding” takes an “Upstairs Downstairs” view of both country estates and squalid slums, prim church services and the machination of a local prostitute. In short, it’s “Peyton Place” with a British, or in this case, Yorkshire accent. And what’s not to love about that?

but not the reason. He’s a smart 10-year-old who heard something wrong and corrected it. The aunt’s bruised ego is the problem. She should be grateful her nephew is learning in school and trying to educate others instead of being spiteful and hurt. — Mother of Another Smart Boy


Dear Annie: Your advice to “Loving Auntie,” whose nephew corrected the adults’ grammar, was wrong. We complain about the state of our children’s education and blame the schools. But these kids are learning proper grammar in school and then hearing it spoken improperly by the adults in their lives. If the boy was correcting his aunt’s grammar in public and being rude, the parents should correct the attitude,

PAUL PENNY sits in his studio with a painting by his mother, Addie Penny, who was one of the artists featured in the first Art in the Park event in 1961. The 50th Art in the Park event is today at South Park, 1200 Mass.

Art in the Park

TURNS 50 By Sarah Henning

It started simply, just a group of friends painting in the park on Sundays. Soon, people were stopping by to have a look at what art was being produced among the green at South Park in downtown Lawrence. So, in 1961, those artists in the park decided to show their admirers exactly what they’d been up to. These artists picked a date and attached their works to cyclone fencing and called it curated. “They decided, ‘Well, maybe we just ought to have an art show down there,’” says Paul Penny, 85, a painter whose mother, Addie, was one of the artists featured in that first Art in the Park. “There was a group of people who did it, and she was one of them.” It doesn’t sound like much, but it was, says Jen Unekis, artist and coordinator for Art in the Park. “It’s separate art booths

ART IN THE PARK What: More than 150 artists will have works and crafts on display. When: 10 a.m.-6 p.m. today (May 8 rain date) Where: South Park, 12th and Massachusetts streets Cost: Free now and there’s this big, huge, sprawling thing, and back then it was just this cyclone fencing. But it was also a big deal. They printed up little catalogs of each of the pieces of art and what the price was and people were dressed in their fancy Sunday-best clothing,” says Unekis, who has paged through scrapbooks full of pictures and clippings from the event’s life span. “There’s one image of these two nuns in full habits that are looking at the art on the cyclone fencing. It just looks like it’s some fancy thing.” This weekend, Art in the Park is still going to be a big deal — fancy dress optional. More than 150 local artists

will show their work between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. Sunday at South Park, with a rain date of May 8. Unekis says that the variety of local art this year is off the charts and totally befitting the event’s 50th anniversary. “We have potters and glass blowers and jewelers — some really nice jewelers this year — some amazing metalsmiths this year,” Unekis says. “And we have a guy who makes chicken-bone motorcycles. And they look really cool.” Back before the era of chicken-bone motorcycles in 1961, Addie Penny was walking the dirt roads of Lawrence, teaching schoolchildren art as a roving public schoolteacher. She instilled her love of art in Paul, who took up painting at age 11 and who has been putting brush to canvas for more than 70 years now. Penny plans on bringing a few dozen paintings with him to this year’s event. His specialization is in rolling land-

LHS senior’s homemade prom dress cost $25 “

By Sarah Henning

I didn’t really go and try anything on, but I just didn’t see anything I wanted, and I didn’t want to pay the prices for what I did want.”

A new prom dress for $25? Sounds like a mother’s dream come true. But Terri Jacobson didn’t see it coming. She knew her daughter, Caitrin, was on the thrifty side, but she figured thrifty for prom meant $80 for a dress. Turns out, her daughter was more resourceful and thrifty than even Terri thought. Caitrin made her prom dress herself. She designed it, sewed it and is now in the process of altering it to perfectly fit her 5-foot-2 frame. It has left her mother speechless — the bejeweled purplish-blue gown is beautiful, memorable and, well, bargain-basement cheap. “Her cousin just went to prom, and I know some of the girls were spending three, four, $500 on dresses. And then you have to do the shoes and the hair and the makeup and then the nails and the toenails,” Terri Jacobson says. “It’s

thing on, but I just didn’t see anything I wanted, and I didn’t want to pay the prices for what I did want,” she says. “I fell in love with one, but it was $400.” Instead of dropping the hardearned money she gets as a nanny to a toddler, Caitrin bought a pattern and started on her own dress a few months ago. Invariably, she sought out advice from LHS family and consumer sciences teacher Shannon Wilson before deciding to ditch her first attempt. “I just couldn’t get it to fit right,” she says. “I did it off a pattern, and I just didn’t like the way it was fitPlease see DRESS, page 2C

lo, Samuel Capricornus, Arcangelo Corelli, Antonio Vivaldi and Georg Philipp Telemann.

NEW YORK — MTV debuted its inaugural O Music Awards, eschewing award show traditions and even its own broadcasting power. A newfangled, multiplatform event, the O Music Awards aired Thursday night on not any of the MTV Networks but on Facebook, MTV websites and mobile apps. The live, hourlong webcast was billed as a fan-friendly celebration of digital music — an attempt by the everyouthful network to officially fete the new arenas of music culture. Embracing the amorphousness of the digital world, MTV kept things so unstructured that even the “O” in the show’s title was intentionally left undefined and open for interpretation. The webcast emanated from an outdoor stage in Las Vegas but effectively took place in the digital realm. Most all winners accepted awards (trophies were a kind of glass cube) remotely in

taped video acceptance speeches. Some performances, like those by Foster the People and Mumford & Sons, were piped in from other locations. The exuberant duo Matt & Kim served as both house band and quasi hosts. “Tonight, we’re celebrating every gigabyte of musical interactively known to man,” said drummer Kim Schifino, before admitting she had no idea what a gigabyte even is. Some familiar faces won awards, such as Lady Gaga, who won most innovative artist and must-follow artist on Twitter. The winners were chosen by fan voting, which was tallied in real time ahead of the awards. “You make me feel so brave,” said Gaga in a video. “And you make me feel like I can really push the boundaries of commercial, mainstream music and art.” Other awards sought to honor the less famous. Viral video sensation Rebecca Black presented the award for “fan army” to the passionate

Baker students Karenah Spencer, Nathan Ferree, Michael Turnbo and Mariah Barnett will perform solos. A sharp contrast in style will be apparent as the strings perform “Skylife,” composed by David Balakrishnan, co-founder of the Turtle Island String Quartet, a world-class string quartet known for their performances of music influenced by jazz, blues, pop, bluegrass and other musical traditions. Symphonic works for the concert are “Concerto in e minor, Op. 64” (Allegro molto appassionato) by Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy with senior violin soloist Judy Erpelding and the last movement of “Symphony No. 9, Op. 95” (New World) by Antonin Dvorak.

Spencer plans arts and culture festival The Spencer Museum of Art’s Student Advisory Board will host its fourth annual Arts and Culture Festival from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday. The event will feature art by local and student artists, along with KU cultural group information booths, live music, KU African Drum Ensemble, the launch of the 2011 Southwest Junior High “Bulldog” podcasts about the Spencer’s collection, the opening of the annual It Starts with Art! children’s art exhibition and the opening of the SSAB’s juried student-art exhibition, “Converging Identities.” Also, Irish artist Alen MacWeeney will give a talk in the 20/21 Gallery about his photographs that are featured in the exhibition “That Invisible Dance: Art and Literature under the British Empire from the 1800s to Beyond,” followed by a screening of his documentary “Traveller” (2002). Additional events will include a performance by KC Irish Dance and music by Thick Lizzy, a local Thin Lizzy cover band. “Converging Identities,” the SSAB’s third-annual juried art show, will open in the Raymond White Teaching Gallery. Events are free and open to the public.

Plus, she’s guaranteed to avoid the kind of prom-time nightmare that plagues any girl as she’s getting her corsage pinned on — showing up to see another girl in the same dress. “There’s been a couple of girls I know who have gotten the same dresses, and most prom dresses you can’t return.

following to Tokio Hotel’s “Alien.” “That’s so amazing, you guys,” said Black to squealing fans around her. MTV has had great success in its Video Music Awards and (to a lesser extent) its Movie Awards. Both began as upstarts keyed on upsetting staid award shows, but have become long-running institutions in their own right. Each show has always put a premium on spontaneity. The OMAs, MTV made clear, are an experiment — a “beta award show,” said Dermot McCormack, head of digital media at MTV Music Group. If the mission was to create social media buzz, the OMAs didn’t appear to succeed on a large scale in real time. On Twitter — one of the primary places the network hoped to stoke conversation — the dominant topics remained the royal wedding and Steve Carell’s “Office” farewell. MTV could still point to the 3 million votes cast online ahead of the Thursday event as evidence of enthusiasm.

THE LATEST BOOK OF CALVIN TRILLIN, shown here in 2003 in his hometown of Kansas City, Mo., is “Trillin on Texas,” a collection of travel tales. families had been traumatized by the era’s pogroms. But like most everything in Texas, it was an exercise in capitalism too. Just a few years earlier, Galveston had been a cosmopolitan hub of finance and culture. Then came the hurricane of 1900, still the deadliest to strike the United States; the Galveston Movement, as it was known, was one of the ways the city tried in vain to recapture its luster. “Trillin on Texas” is a collection of Trillin’s travels there (most pieces previously appeared in the New Yorker). His writing is as always understated and cordial, which works especially well in Texas. Maybe that’s because Texans view their state as a stand-alone republic, and they’re not really joking about that. Indeed, the state is such a vast and varied place that it provides Trillin a peg on which to hang all of his hats — poet, historian, satirist, journalist — not to mention a platform for a favorite pursuit, mocking the Bushes. At times, Trillin gets caught in the trap that many visiting writers stumble into: treating Texas, as one might treat Florida, as an unserious place where things happen that simply don’t happen anywhere else. This occurs, for instance, when he recounts the tale of two teenagers caught in Waco with $482,662 in cash. The townsfolk conclude that the bad guys aren’t the teenagers who took the money but the

government trying to make them give it back. Some anecdotes are 40 years old. Old doesn’t mean bad, of course. Trillin writes, for instance, about a Houston that I missed when I was stationed there for the Los Angeles Times — a Houston where a black activist was sentenced to 30 years for giving away one joint, where a grand dragon declared that the Ku Klux Klan couldn’t have been so bad if so many police officers were members. By the time I got there, injustice wore a nice suit; all Enron ever did was manipulate electric grids and rob people’s life savings. I felt, as a journalist, a little cheated. Anyway, Trillin clearly thrills at the blood sport of Texas politics; he recalls that early in the AIDS crisis, a Texas pol was so worried he wore shower caps on his feet while bathing during a trip to San Francisco. That tells you a fair amount about the place. But today in Texas, patriotism is celebrated by threatening to secede from the union, and the governor recently shot a coyote while jogging, which sounded like a fairenough fight, except the gun was laser-sighted and loaded with hollow-point bullets. For a writer, Texas politics never stops giving; I suggest that Trillin return not so much because his stories are stale but because he would enjoy himself immensely. Some of Trillin’s most

acclaimed writing has been about food, and he does not disappoint here. Many of the great food writers of late have approached the subject not as gourmands but as eaters; I once teared up when R.W. Apple Jr., writing in the New York Times, recalled his love affair with the mangosteen, a tropical fruit I’ve still never tried. Trillin too is at his folksy best when visiting a renowned barbecue restaurant open only on Saturdays, run by a woman named Miss Tootsie, and a man who once worked as a rodeo clown, a prison guard and an auctioneer. Indeed, Trillin’s stories soar when they illustrate that Texas is less a collection of nation-states and more a collection of individualists and iconoclasts — folks just like him, in a sense. We meet a feminist reformer; quirky immigration lawyers; a rancher who refused to pay school taxes after the high school started translating football announcements into Spanish — and he sat on the school board. We meet a rare-book dealer nicknamed Austin Squatty, known for spinning wild yarns at his poker games. When challenged, Squatty would reply: “Let’s see hands. How many want a good story and how many want the truth?” It is a rare, deft observer who can deliver both — a good story and the truth — and that’s carried Trillin far.

Calvin Trillin is a man of principle. He can’t stand, for instance, people who talk about themselves in the third person, which made things difficult back in the days of Dole and Dukakis. He once declared that people caught trying to sell macrame should be, themselves, “dyed a natural color.” And of writers, he once said: “There is no progress” — no corporate world to fall back on, no middle management. Writers are as good as the last thing they wrote, and sometimes not even that. Atop that bedrock of curious dogma, Trillin has built an itinerant and confounding career. He is viewed as a consummate New York writer, though he grew up in the sturdy Midwest. He was a big wheel in the Ivy League, though he relishes kicking the pedestals beneath those who were big wheels in the Ivy League. He became an early and influential guru of regional cuisine, though he professed to know next to nothing about the subject. During his prolific 50 years, in the New Yorker and other publications and in 27 books, Trillin has tackled a ridiculous array of subjects: politics and culture, Americana and adventure, lore and history, catfish and milkshakes, even — famously — parking. So in his latest book, “Trillin on Texas,” it is surprising and even mesmerizing to watch Trillin return — sort of — to his roots. Trillin’s fans know he was the son of a Kansas City, Mo., grocer, but it turns out his family of Ukrainian Jews traced its arrival in the United States to an unlikely port: Galveston, Texas. In the early 1900s, thousands of Jewish families were brought to Galveston — among them, Trillin’s grandparents and father. This was a social program; many of the

Poet’s Showcase

By Edward M. Eveld McClatchy Newspapers

Julia McWilliams was 30 years old in 1942, unmarried, unemployed and a little lost. She had graduated from Smith College but had gotten nowhere as a novelist or an ad writer. “She was disappointed in herself,” author Jennet Conant said about the woman who would become Julia Child. “She had thought of herself as a big girl with a big destiny.” Instead she was tending house for her widowed father, a wealthy, conservative rancher in Pasadena, Calif. When the chance arose to serve in a new wartime foreign intelligence agency — at 6-foot2 she had been rejected by the Women’s Air Corps — she grabbed it. “The war gave her an opportunity not only to do her bit for her country, but a chance to do something with her life,” said Conant, talking about her book, “A Covert Affair: Julia Child and Paul Child in the OSS.” In 2008, Conant was in Washington when the National Archives announced the declassification of a cache of documents related to the OSS, the Office of Strategic Services. The New York author had written a book, “The Irregulars,” about the early years of the agency. When Julia Child popped up among the names of ballplayers, actors, justices and historians who worked for the OSS, Conant wanted to know more. Conant’s book tells the story of a tight circle of OSS intelligence workers dispatched during World War II to India, Ceylon (now Sri Lanka) and China,

LEGENDARY TELEVISION CHEF Julia Child, shown here at age 87, had ties to the Office of Strategic Services, or OSS. including Julia McWilliams and Paul Child. She devotes the most attention to Jane Foster, an irresistible character with a surprising mix of brains and wackiness, and to Communist leanings that would haunt the Childs during the height of McCarthyism in the 1950s. Along the way, Conant’s extensive research reveals fascinating details about Julia and Paul long before they were the eccentrically cute couple from Cambridge who put on a cooking show. Priceless, Conant said, was a trove of letters during the war from Paul Child to his brother and others. In the OSS, Julia proved herself an able hand, running small offices overseas with grave responsibilities over

top-secret material. She also proved she could live in primitive locations amid all manner of infections and diseases. “A lot of people cracked,” Conant said, “taken down by sickness, depression, and had to be sent home. Paul and Julia turned out to be tough.” But Julia had something else to prove. She found herself among a group of sophisticated and worldly colleagues, and she knew she didn’t measure up. “Julia really felt behind, that she had to catch up,” Conant said. “And it was almost like this self-imposed Pygmalion transformation. She’s a fascinating portrait of somebody evolving at a high rate of speed.” Most important, she wanted to prove her worth to the unmarried Paul Child, who was endlessly fascinated by women like Jane Foster but not Julia. Paul and Julia became great mates in the OSS, but Paul was a hard sell for anything more. It was after the war, Conant said, that Paul began to understand what Julia meant to him. “It took a long time for him to realize that the best person for him had been right there in front of him,” Conant said. “They reach out to each other through their letters. You really sense they began to appreciate what was finest in each other.” They were married in 1946, and it was many years later, in 1961, that Julia’s “Mastering the Art of French Cooking” finally was published, with the cooking shows to follow. Conant writes, “Reflecting on her late-in-life success, Julia would often say, ‘The war made me.’”

Alan Grant of Baldwin City has published the mystery novel “Low Chicago.” The novel follows Bobby Connor, a Chicago police detective who has turned state’s evidence against his fellow officers. With the trial looming, he is in fear for his life. Unable to turn to the police for help, he calls Stuart Ferguson, a former investigative reporter now scraping together a living as a freelance travel writer. Ferguson finds himself faced with two mysteries: Who is trying to kill Connor, and what has compelled him to testify against his colleagues? Grant is an economist at Baker University. The book is available at for $11.95 or $6.99 for the e-edition.

New book examines state’s role in Civil War Pearl T. Ponce, an assistant professor at Ithaca College, has edited “Kansas’s War, The Civil War in Documents.” Kansas had been a state for mere weeks before the outbreak of the Civil War. “Kansas’s War” focuses on the internal struggle for control of policy and patronage; border security; and issues of race, especially efforts to come to terms with the burgeoning black population and American Indians’ claims to nearly onefifth of the state’s land. The documents in the book demonstrate how politicians, soldiers and ordinary Kansans understood the conflict and were transformed by the war.

HOSTAS are perennial flowers, sometimes referred to as hosta lilies, and are winter hardy, heat- and drought-tolerant, and have few insect and disease problems. However, a relatively new disease called Hosta Virus X may threaten the plants.


sk almost any gardener what to plant in a shade garden, and hostas will be at or near the top of the list. The perennial flowers, sometimes referred to as hosta lilies, are winter hardy, heat- and drought-tolerant, and have few insect and disease problems. A relatively new disease may change the hosta world, however. Hosta Virus X, an untreatable disease of hostas, is slowly but surely spreading in landscapes nationwide. Last summer was my first opportunity to see a plant infected with Hosta Virus X. The plant had been plucked from a Lawrence garden by its knowledgeable owner and was destroyed after a test confirmed presence of the virus. Symptoms of Hosta Virus X include the appearance of

Garden Calendar

Jennifer Smith mosaics and lines, mottling and blotches on the leaves. Sometimes plant tissues pucker or twist and small brown lesions may form on the leaves. A few varieties of hostas may not exhibit any symptoms at all. Because hostas are available in a wide variety of sizes, textures, leaf colors and shapes, knowing what a specific variety

is supposed to look like is an important key to disease detection. Variety identification may be difficult on hostas that have been in your garden for awhile or that came from friends. In general, if one or a few hostas start to look different from the rest, they might be infected. When purchasing new plants, avoid ones that exhibit symptoms of Hosta Virus X or that appear in any way unhealthy. Hosta Virus X is usually spread by touching infected plants with hands or tools and then touching healthy plants. Dividing the plants (propagation) also spreads the disease, especially when sharing plants with neighbors and gardening friends. Even hitting hosta leaves with a lawnmower or trimmer could spread the virus

to healthy plants. If you suspect Hosta Virus X on a plant or plants in your garden, you may want to have it tested to confirm the disease. The Kansas State University plant diagnostic laboratory performs the Hosta Virus X test for a small fee. A whole, live plant is required for testing and can be submitted to the lab through the K-State Research and Extension Office in Douglas County. Regardless of whether you want to test the plants, hostas suspected of having Hosta Virus X should be removed from the landscape and burned or otherwise destroyed to prevent further spread of the disease. Researchers believe that the virus cannot survive in the soil, so you may be able to replant

hostas in areas where Hosta Virus X-infected plants grew previously. Waiting until roots of the previous plants have completely decomposed is recommended. A few “new” varieties of hosta are actually believed now to only exhibit unique characteristics because of presence of Hosta Virus X in their tissues. These varieties should be avoided or removed and destroyed if already planted. The cultivars believed to be infected with the virus are Breakdance, Eternal Father, Kiwi Watercolours, Leopard Frog, Lunacy, and Parkish Gold. — 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: Carousels not created with children in mind By Terry Kovel

Carousel figures, made mostly in the early 1900s, sell for high prices today. Carousels probably were first made in the 1700s to train spear-throwers, not as enjoyable rides for children. A horseback rider would ride toward a hanging ring and try to put the spear through it. By the late 1700s in Europe, there were small, light, moveable carousels that traveled from city to city. The modern carousel was introduced in the United States in the 1860s. Gustav Dentzel started a company that made carousel figures and parts. Some of the company’s carvers were trained in art; some were European immigrants who had carved tombstones and woodwork in their home countries. At least 13 U.S. companies were making carved carousel fig-

ures by 1915. American carousels were more imaginative, more elaborate and more beautiful than those made in Europe. Another famous carousel maker was Herschell Spillman Co., founded in North Tonawanda, N.Y., in 1900. The company made horses and at least 18 other animals for carousels in the “old” style. Each animal was carved with special features, flowers, saddles and masks, and was painted in bright colors. A rare frog figure made about 1910-’15 by Spillman sold recently at a James Julia auction in Fairfield, Maine, for more than $10,000. The frog was wearing shorts, vest, a white collar and bowtie, and sported a perfect coat of paint. Today, carousel figures that are not part of a working carousel are collected as folk art. Other animals were made in

smaller numbers than horses and sell for higher prices. There are 100 vintage working carousels in the United States today. If there is one near where you live, take a ride, admire the handcarved horses and bring back memories of your childhood.


Was there such a thing as a dunce chair? I have read about them in books and seen some in TV movies, but was there really a chair in the corner for a dunce in school?


Educational ideas have changed throughout the centuries. In the 19th century and perhaps earlier, a child who misbehaved or did not study or do homework often was shamed in front of classmates. A seat in the corner and a pointed dunce

more confining. We have seen old wooden chairs with long legs as well as high stools sold as “dunce chairs.” The name and the idea seem to make buyers more interested.

THE FROG from the book “The Wind in the Willows” probably inspired the look of this carved wooden carousel animal. It may be the only figure on an old carousel dressed in human clothes. It sold in February 2011 at a James D. Julia auction in Fairfield, Maine, for $11,900. cap were really used. The dunce chair could be a high stool or chair. It was made so that the child could not put his or her feet down on the floor. Perhaps that was to make the chair seem

Every blooming thing for your garden

Q: I inherited a metal sculpture that has been in my family since the 1930s. Counting the wooden base, it’s 26 1/4 inches high. The sculpture is of a man carrying fishing gear. It’s titled “God Fishing” and is signed “Mestais.” What can you tell me about it? A: Mestais is a listed sculptor who worked in France around the turn of the 20th century. Not much else is known about him. Your sculpture is made of spelter, an inexpensive zinc alloy. And you’re reading the title wrong. It’s called “Cod Fishing,” not “God Fishing.” An identical

sculpture sold at auction in England last year for $32. That seems less than you should expect if you sold it here. Q: A friend gave me an old sterling-silver filigree pin. The interesting thing about it is that on the back, it reads “Made in Palestine.” Is that a clue to its age? A: Since your pin is marked in English, it’s likely that it dates from the years when much of the geographic region historically referred to as Palestine was under British Mandate. That means your pin was made between 1923 and 1948 — most likely in the 1930s or ‘40s. Some artists who live in today’s Palestinian territories mark their pieces the same way, but filigree work in silver was more popular 60 or 70 years ago than it is now.
