Brownback signs tax cuts into law, predicts boon By Scott Rothschild

TOPEKA — Gov. Sam Brownback on Tuesday signed into law massive tax cuts that he says will boost the economy and create jobs. “Today’s legislation will create tens of thousands of new jobs and help make Kansas the best place in America to start and grow a small busi-

ness,” said Brownback, a conservative Republican who made tax cuts his top goal of the 2012 legislative session. “My faith is in the people of Kansas, not the government’s ability to tax and redistribute.” Brownback’s action came under harsh criticism from

Republicans, Democrats and advocates for schools and children. “This is a tax bill that only a deficit-spending politician who has spent his career in Washington, D.C., could love,” said Rochelle Chronister, a former House assistant majority leader and

chairwoman of the Kansas Republican Party. Chronister, speaking on behalf of 55 former legislators called Traditional Republicans for Common Sense, added, “What does it (the tax cuts) do for Kansas? It bankrupts the state within two years.” House Minority Leader

Kansas has the 27th highest rate of injury-related deaths in the country, according to a new report. Kansas does not require children to wear bicycle helmets, and a 2004 Lawrence helmet ordinance is not generally enforced.

Helmet laws urged for Kansas

By Karrey Britt

Kansas has the 27th highest rate of injury-related deaths in the country, according to a new report. The rate, 60.4 per 100,000 people, also is higher than the national average. To help prevent such fatalities, the report suggests the state implement a bicycle helmet law and expanding its motorcycle helmet law to include all riders. “Injury is the third-leading cause of death for all age groups in the U.S. and one person dies from injury every three minutes,” said Andrea Gielen, director of the Johns Hopkins Center for Injury Research and Policy. The highest rate was in New Mexico, where 97.8 per 100,000 people die

from injuries. The lowest was New York with 37.1 per 100,000 people. Nationally, each year:

50 million are medically treated for injuries.

29 million are treated in emergency rooms for injuries.

2.8 million are hospitalized for injuries.

$406 billion is lost in medical costs and productivity because of injuries.

180,000 die from injuries. The report found that millions of injuries could be prevented annually if more states adopted policies and programs such as child safety seat and helmet laws. For example, an estimated:

69,000 lives were

does not require children to wear helmets, but 21 states do. Lawrence passed an ordinance in 2004 that requires children 16 and under to wear a helmet, but it doesn’t enforce penalties. Nationally, about 700 bicyclists are killed each year and 52,000 are injured. Bicyclists under age 16 account for 13 percent of those deaths.

The 76-page report, “The Facts Hurt: A State-By-State Injury Prevention Policy Report,” was released Tuesday by the Trust for America’s Health and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. The report looked at 10 key indicators that states can take to prevent injuries. Kansas met all but three:

Memorial Park Cemetery won’t have its traditional “avenue of flags” lining both the entrance and most of the cemetery this Memorial Day. Members of the Lawrence Veterans of Foreign Wars post recently discovered they were missing a trailer with the 300 flagpoles they use to display the American flags over the holiday weekend. “I apologize to the Lawrence community that we’re unable to put up the avenue of flags,” said post commander Fred Shockey. “Everything else will go according to plan. We’ll have the ceremony. We’ll still put the flags out on the gravestones. Hopefully throughout next year we’ll be able to put together a fundraiser to replace the poles.”

Betty Jean Ryan Graveside service for Betty Jean Ryan, 88, Lawrence will be held 10 am Saturday, May 26, 2012 at Memorial Park Cemetery. She died May 21, 2012 at The Windsor of Lawrence. Betty was born on November 30, 1923 in Osage County, KS the daughter of William Earl and Bertha Leora (Drummond) Gordon. Betty was a homemaker. She enjoyed bingo and playing cards at the clubhouse at Pinecrest Apartments in Eudora. Betty was a member of the Golden Agers. She married Rolland E. Ryan on October 31, 1941 in Olathe, KS. He preceded her in death on July 29, 1993.

Young said KU received a wide range of job titles applying for the program, from administrative assistants to full professors. He said 13 or 14 of the applications were from people making more than $100,000. Generally, employees qualified for the program if they were 62 or older at the time of their separation and had at least 10 years of service working for a Kansas Board of Regents institution or at the Kansas Board of Regents office, Young said. Instead of being 62 or older, employees also could qualify if they had 85 points under the Kansas Public Employees Retirement System. Employees earn one point for every year of service and one point for each year of age. In all, about 23 percent of the people offered were interested. Young said KU was hoping that about 20 to 30 percent of the eligible employees would apply. KU’s deans and vice provosts will review each application individually and will determine whether to approve them by June 1. “The most important factor is there has to be a benefit to the university,” Young said, be it a financial benefit or an operational benefit. Once the applications are approved, employees have until July 16 to de-

Theodore Wilson, a professor in KU’s history department, has worked for the university for 37 years but wasn’t eligible for the buyout because he’s already in a phasedretirement program. “If I were eligible, I wouldn’t be interested in it,” he said. Without including benefits, the one year’s salary wouldn’t have been enough, he said. In the phased-retirement program, faculty work less and take a corresponding reduction in pay. But the university keeps paying its contribution to an employee health care plan and to the employee’s retirement plan. However, some faculty said they’ll keep on working, even with the earlyretirement options. “I never really thought about it,” said Nancy Kinnersley, a professor of electrical engineering and computer science who is eligible for the program but isn’t interested. “I’m having too much fun, and I don’t see any reason to quit.” — Higher education reporter Andy Hyland can be reached at 832-6388.

critical services, and higher property taxes,” Davis said. Brownback’s signature on House Bill 2117 will do away with the three state income tax rates of 3.5 percent, 6.25 percent and 6.45 percent, and replace them with two rates, 3 percent and 4.9 percent. The measure will eliminate income taxes for the owners of 191,000 businesses that are limited liability corporations, subchapter S corporations and sole proprietorships. It also increases the standard deduction amount for single head-of-household filers from $4,500 to $9,000, and for married taxpayers filing jointly from $6,000 to $9,000. In addition, an already scheduled reduction of the state sales tax from 6.3 percent to 5.7 percent will take effect next year. All told, tax revenue is projected to decline $4.5 billion over the next six years, raising concerns from many about the impact such a reduction will have on the state budget, which totals about $6.2 billion in state revenue annually and sustained significant cuts during the recession. The Legislature’s research staff forecast that the tax cuts would lead to a budget shortfall by July 2014 that could grow to a range of $2.5 billion to $3 billion by July 2018. Shannon Cotsoradis, president and chief executive officer of Kansas Action for Children, said, “The tax bill signed into law today by Gov. Sam Brownback will have devastating consequences for Kansas children and families.” Terry Forsyth, president of the Working Kansas Alliance, said Brownback’s tax cuts will shift the tax burden to property taxes “and will have a devastating impact on the quality of life for working families across Kansas. He has ignored the voices and concerns of everyday Kansans who have urged him to veto this irresponsible tax plan. The working families of Kansas deserve more from their governor.” Asked to respond to those criticisms, Brownback vowed the state will meet the needs of schools,


Shockey said the post had owned the poles, some of which included brass plaques honoring veterans who have died, for an estimated 30 to 40 years. The poles, which included special hooks, were stored on a trailer on the post property, 138 Ala. Members last saw the trailer in February, and they made a report to police last week once they couldn’t find it while trying to make Memorial Day preparations. Shockey said if the trailer and poles were stolen, suspects likely would have noticed the brass plaques on some of the poles. Post members have checked with area metal recycling businesses,

TOPEKA (AP) — The main figures in the Kansas Legislature’s rancorous debate over redistricting — except Gov. Sam Brownback — hope to participate in a federal lawsuit over lawmakers’ failure to draw the state’s political boundaries. And Secretary of State Kris Kobach said Tuesday he worries that the lawsuit will drag out because of the number of parties who could be allowed to call witnesses, present evidence and submit redistricting proposals to the three judges hearing the the most vulnerable Kansans and will build roads. He said cuts will have to be made in the budget. At the bill-signing ceremony, Brownback was joined by members of his Cabinet, a handful of legislators and representatives of the Kansas Policy Institute and Americans for Prosperity, groups that have been calling for tax cuts, less government spending and linked to Wichita-based Koch Industries. Critics of the tax cut have said the measure would benefit many large businesses, such as Koch Industries, at the expense of low-income wage earners. The Kansas Policy Institute distributed a paper that said the state’s general revenue fund would continue to have a positive balance if the state instituted onetime cuts of 6.5 percent and experienced 1.5 percent annual revenue growth. Brownback’s office said “dynamic projections” show the new law will result in 22,900 new jobs, give $2 billion more in disposable income and increase population by 35,740 people. But an analysis by the Kansas Economic Progress Council shows that to try to recover the lost revenue through increased sales tax collections, Kansas would need to add nearly 500,000 new jobs each paying $50,000. That is equivalent to a 50 percent increase in jobs in six years. Business groups, however, lauded Brownback’s action. “Gov. Brownback’s decision to sign this legislation shows that he’s serious about growing the Kansas economy and making our state the best

Post members estimate they would need 25 poles, which cost an estimated $30 each, just to line 15th Street and the entrance to the cemetery, which is only part of what they normally do for the weekend.

I apologize,” he said. “With the short time line, we just can’t come up with those

The new law was the result of a furious legislative battle. Moderate Republicans in the Senate wanted a less aggressive tax cut, phasing in reductions over a number of years. But as a favor to Brownback, the moderates approved a larger tax cutting measure to get a bill into a House-Senate conference committee for further negotiations. The moderates said they were assured that bill would never see the light of day, but Brownback has said he made no such assurance. As the legislative session continued, Brownback asked conservative Republicans in the House to concur with the Senateapproved bill despite the projected deficits. Senate leaders cried foul, but that maneuver put the bill on Brownback’s desk. The governor vowed to sign it as further negotiations failed. House Speaker Mike O’Neal, R-Hutchinson, who helped push the tax cut through, said it “will be a turning point for Kansas. I am excited about the growth this reform will trigger in the coming years.” 609 N.H. (offices) • 645 N.H. (News Center) Lawrence, KS 66044 (785) 843-1000 • (800) 578-8748

Extension allowed for car tag renewals

Farmland starting business transition

Doing a double take

By Shaun Hittle

Problems with the state’s vehicle title and registration system Monday slowed down the process at county treasurer offices across the state. But drivers will get a break in the form of a onemonth extension to renew vehicle tags or get license plates for new vehicles, according to a news release from the Kansas Department of Revenue. Extensions for tags that expire April 30 go until May 31, while those expiring May 31 will have until June 29 to renew. In addition, 30-day permits will receive an extension until June 29. The Department of Revenue worked with law enforcement across the state to coordinate the grace periods, according to the news release. The state has been working with the vendor of the computer system, 3M, to correct the problems. The division is in the midst of a $40 million computer upgrade that will integrate driver’s license records with vehicle title and registration data. Drivers who have the same insurance and address as last year can renew online at Last week, an unrelated problem with the state system shut down computers at state motor vehicle offices that process driver’s license applications and renewals.

KU graduate’s body found in harbor By Clarke Canfield Associated Press

PORTLAND, MAINE — The body of a Harvard Business School student who attended Kansas University as an undergraduate was recovered from Portland Harbor on Tuesday, three days after he was told to leave a waterfront bar for being visibly drunk while celebrating his upcoming graduation with two friends. A Maine State Police diver recovered the body of Nathan Bihlmaier, 31, of Cambridge, Mass., shortly before noon from — Reporter Shaun Hittle can be the harbor bottom near reached at 832-7173. Follow him Custom House Wharf, at

Portland Police Chief Michael Sauschuck said. Bihlmaier was separated from friends after leaving the Ri Ra Irish Pub — two wharves away from where the body was found — at 11:30 p.m. Saturday, Sauschuck said. He later called his friends to tell them he was lost, with his last communication with them coming at 12:15 a.m. Sunday. His cellphone was shut off about 40 minutes later. Bihlmaier’s death appears to be a tragic accident, Sauschuck said. An

autopsy is expected today. “We don’t have any indication at this point there was any type of crime,” the police chief said at a news conference. A native of Osborne, Kan., Bihlmaier was a KU graduate, due to graduate from Harvard on Thursday. His wife is pregnant with their first child. Police have reviewed cellphone records and a surveillance video showing Bihlmaier leaving Ri Ra, Sauschuck said. They are looking for other surveillance video from

cameras along the waterfront in an attempt to retrace Bihlmaier’s movements and determine where he went into the water, he said. Ri Ra employees followed state law by asking a visibly intoxicated Bihlmaier to leave, but it’s probably worth asking if bars should take additional steps to ensure the safety of their customers, Sauschuck said. “We think responsible bar owners and employees would take that next step to make sure they’re safely on their way,” he said. Ri Ra general manager Samantha Schoolcraft said she had no comment.

On paper, at least, Lawrence soon will have 260 new acres to attract more than a dozen industrial and hightech businesses to town. Lawrence City Hall leaders are finalizing the master development plan to convert the former Farmland Industries fertilizer plant into a business park on the eastern edge of the city. “We hope to start construction of some infrastructure in the fourth quarter of this year,” said City Manager David Corliss. “We hope by this time next year we’ll be able to not only have infrastructure on the way to being installed, but also have tenants working on projects as well.” City commissioners took ownership in 2010 of the former fertilizer plant property, which had become environmentally blighted through years of nitrogen fertilizer spills. The entire property is 467 acres, but the proposed master plan leaves, for the time being, two large pieces of ground undeveloped and also devotes significant space to drainage areas, roads and other public infrastructure. In total, the plan sets aside 260.2 acres over 17 different lots that can be sold Please see FARMLAND, page 4A

Planning commission Farmland recommends approval of rec center zoning By Chad Lawhorn

A proposal to build a major recreation complex at the northwest corner of Sixth Street and the South Lawrence Trafficway has cleared another hurdle. Lawrence-Douglas County planning commissioners at their Monday meeting recommended approval of a request to rezone the property to a heavier commercial zoning category, which is a requirement for a new recreation complex. The rezoning issue now will go to the Lawrence City Commission in the next couple of weeks for final consideration. Monday’s vote by the Planning Commission involved creating a new commercial zoning designation to accommodate the proposed public-private recreation complex. The designation calls for the entire intersection of

Sixth Street and the South Lawrence Trafficway to become a CC 600 commercial center. The designation would allow a total of 600,000 square feet of commercial space to be built at the intersection. Under the current zoning, only 400,000 square feet of commercial space can be built at the intersection. Specific plans for the proposed recreation complex haven’t yet been submitted, but concept plans have included a 180,000-square-foot center to house multiple gyms and other amenities. The complex also would include an outdoor track and field complex that could possibly host the Kansas Relays. The city will host a public meeting on the project at 6:30 p.m. June 6 at Free State High School. — City reporter Chad Lawhorn can be reached at 832-6362. Follow him at

City asks Liberty Hall to tweak event plans An event to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Liberty Hall building will be tweaked but will continue on after Lawrence city commissioners expressed support Tuesday. Commissioners at their weekly meeting balked at the idea of closing down a portion of the 600 block of Massachusetts Street on June 22 to host a street party event to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the building. But commissioners urged Liberty Hall officials to file new plans that would move the street party portion of the event to Seventh Street between New Hampshire and Massachusetts streets. As proposed, the street would be closed from 1 p.m. to midnight. Commissioners also said they would be open to allowing the event to take over the parking spaces on

the east side of the 600 block of Massachusetts Street. Rob Fitzgerald, event manager for Liberty Hall, said he would work to make the changes to the event. He said details about the party haven’t been set, but he expects to have a kids zone full of games, some live music and probably some birthday cake. The city also has been asked to approve alcohol sales on the portion of the street that will be closed. The party will take place the same night that The Flaming Lips will play a sold-out show at Liberty Hall. The street closing request is expected to be back on the commission’s June 5 agenda. The Liberty Hall building opened 100 years ago as the Bowersock Opera House.

Tobias Schlingensiepen, a Democrat, has been pastor of Topeka’s First Congregational Church for the past six years and a police chaplain for 12 years. Schlingensiepen said he is running because people “want a representative who believes it is more im-

portant to get people back to work, make sure our economy rewards innovation and a strong work ethic, and addresses our nation’s ever-expanding deficit than scoring shortterm political points.” Schlingensiepen has four children and lives in Topeka with his wife, Abigail. Jenkins will be seeking re-election to a third term in the House. The district currently includes western Douglas County, but new district lines are expected to be drawn in the coming weeks by a federal judicial panel.

A federal judge has dismissed one claim against a health care contractor at a Kansas women’s prison as part of a Lawrence man’s lawsuit alleging he was unfairly dismissed from his internship. U.S. Dis- COURTS trict Judge Carlos Murguia in his written ruling agreed that Ryan Talley, 30, a former Washburn University psychology graduate student, was an intern and not an employee of Correct Care Solutions, a health care contractor for the Topeka

Correctional Facility, and that Talley could not sue the contractor for wrongful termination. Talley still has four claims pending in the suit, a breach of contract claim against Correct Care Solutions and three claims against Washburn University. An attorney for Talley filed the suit in October alleging Washburn and the contractor violated the Americans with Disabilities Act because they dismissed Talley based on his ADHD diagnosis and his need to use the prescribed medication Adderall to treat it. Talley worked at an internship engaging in individual and group psychotherapy at the wom-

Earlier this year, Schlingensiepen helped gather signatures on a petition calling for House Speaker Mike O’Neal, R-Hutchinson, to resign for forwarding an email that referred to President Barack Obama and a Bible verse that says, “Let his days be few and brief.” O’Neal apologized over the email. Schlingensiepen also criticized Gov. Sam Brownback, a Republican, for proposing a tax plan that eliminated provisions aimed at helping the working poor, such as the Earned Income Tax Credit. Brownback later abandoned that proposal.

Joplin marks year since deadly tornado


Megan Gilliland, the city’s communications manager, provided this answer: City staff uses pesticides as a tool to control unwanted and noxious weeds such as poison ivy and other plant pests such as bagworms in selected areas. A map of green parks and other limited-spray areas is available at The department created an Integrated Pest Management Policy including an accepted pesticide materials list several years ago. All chemicals used are Category Level 3 or 4. When spray applications are occurring, the department posts signs in advance of spraying and leaves the signs up for 24 hours after completion. The parks department also uses alternative methods of weed control including sheet and wood chip mulching and mowing grass high to help control weeds and reduce use of pesticides.

Russell for further assessment, according to Kansas Department of Corrections spokesman Jan Lunsford. Russell is serving up to Russell a life sentence for several sex crimes from the early 1990s, and was eligible for parole in June. Last month, Russell was identified by DNA evidence as a suspect in an unsolved 1985 Topeka rape. Another man, Joe Jones, had spent nearly seven years in prison for the crime before his exoneration through DNA evidence in 1992. Russell was served an arrest warrant in April and has been charged in Shaw-

Kim Murphree, a Lawrence police spokesman, said police were called just before 8 p.m. Tuesday to Game Stop, 3140 Iowa, in reference to a robbery. A 23-year-old Lawrence man reported the suspect, who was an acquaintance, had followed him into the store and taken money from him by force. The victim alleged the suspect confronted him in the store, and after a verbal altercation about money, the suspect grabbed his face and neck and demanded cash, causing the victim to give the man money he had in his hand, Murphree said. The argument stopped when an employee approached, and both the suspect and victim then left the building. According to Douglas County Jail records, officers arrested the suspect at 8:42 p.m. nearby at the Easy Living Mobile Home Park, 3323 Iowa. Douglas County prosecutors could make a decision later about formal charges in the case later. The Journal-World generally does not identify suspects unless they are formally charged. • A 36-year-old Lawrence man reported to Lawrence police Sunday that someone stole his black Hercules Fox 50 scooter, valued at $1,500, some time between midnight and 2 a.m. Sunday from the 1600 block of Haskell Avenue. • A 49-year-old Lawrence man reported to police the someone stole $2,000 worth of deck lumber some time between 2:15 p.m. and 2:30 p.m. Wednesday from the 1900 block of West 31st Street.

Emergency drill to be conducted at KU You might hear plenty of sirens this morning and see a flurry of activity near Corbin Hall on the Kansas University campus. But it’s only a drill as members of the KU Public Safety Office and dozens of other personnel from area law enforcement and fire and medical agencies conduct an annual emergency response exercise. Gavin Young, a KU spokesman, said the 10 a.m. event will involve a crisis scenario at Corbin Hall, and it will allow area agencies to assess and improve their overall readiness for re-

sponding to an emergency by testing emergency plans and procedures to reveal potential strengths and weaknesses. “It’s the debriefing afterwards where you learn the lesson,” Young said. Some areas around Corbin may be blocked off during the four-hour exercise, including the 1000 block of Ohio Street. Other agencies participating include the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office, Lawrence Police Department, Eudora Police Department, Baldwin City Police Department, Lawrence-Douglas County Fire Medical and the KU Office of Public Affairs.

At 1:22 a.m. Sunday, law enforcement officials responded to a bank alarm and found that the outside ATM had been removed and was being pushed by a truck traveling west on John Brown Road. The truck fled, leaving the ATM behind, and led police on a chase on John Brown Road to the city of Williamsburg, where the truck crashed. The driver fled on foot through neighborhoods in the dark, and was able to escape police. Several other law enforcement agencies assisted with the incident, and the sheriff’s office has identified a person of interest in the case. The ATM and all of the money was recovered.

Rainy day funds During the current unstable times, Lawrence school officials may need to reconsider spending down the district’s reserves.


he uncertainty of the state’s financial situation and how it will affect K-12 funding for the next few years should make Lawrence school officials rethink a couple of recent spending decisions. This doesn’t look like the right time to be depleting district reserves and making new spending commitments. Last month, the Lawrence school board voted to expand full-day kindergarten to four more district schools and add 21 new teachers to the district so that class sizes could be reduced. Those two moves, along with reinstating the district’s position for director of instruction and adding a program to help more middle-of-the-road students pursue higher education, are estimated to cost about $2 million next year. School officials said the cost could be covered by using funds the district expects to receive as a result of increased enrollment and by using cash reserves that have built up over the past couple of years from state funding the district received for at-risk programs. Even at the time the additional spending was approved, district leaders conceded that the new programs couldn’t be sustained for more than two or three years using the current funding sources. “We can’t sustain this without additional dollars from the Legislature,” said Superintendent Rick Doll. The chances of the district receiving additional dollars or even the same number of dollars from the state in the next few years has perhaps never been more in doubt. The budget passed by the Legislature for next year includes a small increase in per-pupil funding but only after a heated battle. Those budget battles will get much worse if the tax cuts signed into law by Gov. Sam Brownback on Tuesday don’t produce the kind of economic boon predicted by its proponents. The governor already has supported plans to push more responsibility for funding K-12 schools onto local property taxes, and that pressure is likely to increase if the state experiences revenue shortfalls. That not only makes it likely that the Lawrence district will need its reserve funds for basic operations in the next few years, it also makes it a questionable time to ask voters to approve a bond issue for elementary school improvements, as the board discussed Monday. Even if the bond issue itself could be paid off without increasing taxes, it would add to the district’s overall financial burden and, therefore, to the property tax burden of district patrons. All of the initiatives being considered by board members — all-day kindergarten, smaller class sizes, elementary school improvements — certainly are worthwhile goals. It’s also true that officials always should be looking for ways to make the district better. However, with the current financial uncertainty hanging over the state, this is a time to be conservative about spending and perhaps hang on to the reserves that could help the district weather a possible financial storm.

Turmoil threatens stability in China WASHINGTON — Perhaps when Chinese leaders began to speak over the last several years about a new “Beijing Consensus” and the triumph of the “China Model,” that was a warning the bubble was about to burst. And we’re seeing that hubris play out now, as China’s leaders struggle with the greatest internal crisis since the Tiananmen Square protests of 1989. This time, the political machinations have mostly been behind the scenes among the Communist Party elite. The headline event was the purge of Bo Xilai, the ambitious party chief in Chongqing province. But the corruption investigation of Bo has sent shock waves across the system. Bo’s network of friends and cronies was so wide that many senior party and military officials fear they might be affected. Because China works so hard to conceal the workings of its political system, outsiders only get glimpses of the turmoil. The Financial Times reported last weekend that Zhou Yongkang, one of Bo’s key backers on the Politburo’s standing committee, had been forced to give up control of China’s police, judiciary and secret police. The Wall Street Journal wrote Thursday that two senior Chinese military officials, Gen. Liu Yuan and Gen. Zhang Haiyang, had been questioned about their links to Bo. Such rumors abound,

David Ignatius

What does this wobbly Chinese transition mean for America?” all impossible to verify. Across China, there is said to be uncertainty as officials try to understand what’s happening and protect themselves. It’s a nerve-wracking moment for a country where, as one longtime China investor privately observes, “the whole point of political office is to steal as much money as possible as fast as possible.” The official line, conveyed by People’s Daily, is that the country’s leadership transition will go forward as scheduled this fall, with Xi Jinping expected to succeed Hu Jintao as president. But this brave front masks what China-watchers describe as a state of high anxiety. Though Bo has been attacked as a “princeling” son of the party elite, some of the Politburo members who ousted him are princelings, too, including Prime Minister Wen

Jiabao and Xi himself. The full array of targets in the anti-Bo campaign is not yet clear, so the fallout is hard to predict. What dynamics underlie this jockeying among the leadership? I put that question to Kenneth Lieberthal, a senior fellow of the Brookings Institution and perhaps America’s most respected Sinologist. He notes three factors that make the current moment so delicate: O The Chinese leadership is rarely so clearly divided. The party rulers prize consensus and believe that it’s a key factor in maintaining stability. They learned long ago the lesson that if they don’t hang together, they risk all hanging separately. That essential consensus is now in question. O The Chinese middle class, whose rise has buttressed political stability, appears disgruntled. Social media in China are alive with complaints about product safety, food safety, air quality (described by U.S. officials as “crazy bad”) and widespread corruption. A crucial social force is increasingly disaffected, and the spread of new social media amplifies this discontent. O The Chinese elite worry about a huge migrant labor force, estimated at 300 million, who mostly live on the margins of the rich coastal cities. They represent a potential source of instability because they are denied full urban

status, with its attendant benefits. If there’s one thing China is good at, it’s managing and suppressing internal dissent, so you’d have to bet that Beijing will keep the lid on. But it’s getting harder. These problems would be worrying even if the Chinese economy were still in its mega-boom phase. But economic growth is cooling. China’s imports and exports have both slowed over the past year, and the country’s central bank just lowered its reserve requirements, for the third time in six months, to encourage banks to lend more money. What does this wobbly Chinese transition mean for America? Lieberthal is surely right that there’s little the U.S. can do to shape events, in any event. China is too big and complicated a country for that. For 40 years, the U.S. has seen a rising and stable China as being in America’s interest, and this core interest hasn’t changed. But if the Chinese leadership can’t contain the current turmoil, new political forces may emerge calling for a more open and democratic China. Americans are bound to be sympathetic, as they were to the Tiananmen protesters of 1989. But the process of change could be wildly unstable: An evolving China is better for everybody than an exploding one. — David Ignatius is a columnist for Washington Post Writers Group.



From the Lawrence Daily Journal-World for May 23, 1912: YEARS “The K.U. SeismoAGO graph recorded IN 1912 an earthquake at 9 o’clock last night which according to the indications was about 6,000 miles distant. The first waves began at 9 o’clock and continued for 31 minutes. F. W. Bruckmiller, who is in charge of the earthquake machine, stated this morning that he believed the quake was somewhere in Asia and that it was quite severe. The waves recorded by the machine indicated this.”

Politics hurts Latin American universities The appointment of Venezuelan-born Rafael Reif as president of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology last week raises an interesting question: Why are so many Latin Americans excelling in the world’s best universities, but not in Latin America? Reif, who will be the first MIT president not to be a native English speaker, graduated as an engineer from Venezuela’s Universidad de Carabobo in 1973, and moved to the United States to get a doctorate in electrical engineering from Stanford University in California. The son of Eastern European immigrants who moved to Ecuador and Colombia before settling in Venezuela, Reif has spearheaded MIT’s work in micro and nanotechnology, and holds 15 patents. In his acceptance speech on May 16, he admitted that when he arrived in this country as a graduate student, “I did not speak English.” While Reif has risen higher than most Latinos in U.S. academic circles, he is far from alone. There are not as many Latin Americans as Asians in top U.S. academic jobs, but there are several university presidents and star professors who were born in the region. There is a lot of academic talent in Latin America, but universities in the region lag far behind their counterparts in the United States, Europe and Asia, according to the best known world university rankings. There is no Latin American university among the first

Andres Oppenheimer

While Brazil is the world’s sixth largest economy and Mexico the 11th, the highestranking Latin American university in the ranking is Brazil’s University of Sao Paulo, in 178th place.” 150 places in the rankings of Britain’s Times Higher Education Supplement. U.S. universities occupy most of the first 100 places, and MIT is ranked the seventh best in the world. While Brazil is the world’s sixth largest economy and Mexico the 11th, the highest-ranking Latin American university in the ranking is Brazil’s University of Sao Paulo, in 178th place. When it comes to scientific research, U.S. inventors — many of them from major universities — register 192,000 patents a year, while all 33 Latin American and Caribbean countries together register only 21,000, according to the Ibero-American Net-

work of Science and Technology Indicators, known by its Spanish acronym Ricyt. There are many reasons why Latin American universities are not as good as their pool of talent, but one of the main ones is that they put politics ahead of academic merit or scientific achievements to appoint and promote their best professors. In addition, most of Latin America’s biggest state-run universities elect their presidents only from within their institutions, rather than conducting public searches for the best talent, regardless of whether they are in-house or outside candidates. “Political interests interfere with the selection of academic leadership in many Latin American countries,” says Isaac Prilleltensky, the Argentineborn dean of University of Miami’s School of Education. “Higher education institutions with distinguished track records search for talent and select the best candidates based on scholarly background.” If new MIT president Reif had stayed in Venezuela after graduating, he may have faced a hard time getting a teaching job. On the very day that Reif’s new job at MIT was announced, Venezuela’s well-known website published a document showing that the government of President Hugo Chavez in 2004 sent a letter to the presidents of Venezuelan public universities asking them “not to hire any person” whose name was on the list of 4 million people who signed a public

petition for a referendum to revoke Chavez’s term. The letter, dated Feb. 13, 2004 and signed by then-Vice President Jose Vicente Rangel, was made public by Gustavo Azocar Alcala, a Venezuelan journalist and politician, the website said. Politics permeates not only university appointments, but what is taught in most of the region’s biggest universities. Earlier this month, Argentina’s biggest university, the state-run University of Buenos Aires, completed the first semester of a course named “Che Guevara” that focused on the history of Argentina’s Revolutionary People’s Army 1970’s guerrilla group. Critics noted that Argentine taxpayer’s money in the 316,000-student tuition-free university was being used to glorify political violence. My opinion: Fortunately, some countries such as Chile and Brazil are taking steps to depoliticize their universities, and to insert them into the global academic community. Brazil most recently announced that it will send 100,000 students to pursue mostly science and engineering graduate degrees in U.S. and European universities. But, overall, Latin American countries need an all-out offensive to ban politics from their classrooms. Otherwise, they will keep expelling some of their best brains from their countries. — Andres Oppenheimer is a Latin America correspondent for the Miami Herald.

Kansas workers sue meat-packing plant WICHITA — Workers at a Kansas slaughterhouse are seeking unpaid wages and overtime from National Beef Packing Co. in a federal lawsuit filed Tuesday on behalf of some 2,000 employees at the firm’s Liberal plant. At issue is the practice of paying meat-processing workers based on so-called gang time, which counts only the time the production line is running. The suit claims employees are not paid for the time it takes them to put on and take off protective gear. Similar lawsuits over gang-time pay were filed last year against Creekstone Farms Premium Beef in Arkansas City and last month against the Farmland Foods slaughterhouse in Monmouth, Ill.

National Beef did not immediately return phone messages left Tuesday seeking comment. The lawsuit filed Tuesday in U.S. District Court in Kansas seeks class-action status and names employees Valente Sandoval Barbosa and Carolina Gaytan as its class representatives for all hourly meat processing workers. It claims employees have been systematically underpaid for the time it takes to take off and put on protective gear during unpaid meal breaks, walking to and from production lines, waiting in line for equipment, waiting in line to clean equipment and cleaning equipment. It also contends they were not paid while waiting when the production line was not running.

KU ace Duncan proves value He pitched for a small, all-boys Catholic high school in San Francisco, had a fastball that might not get arrested for speeding on I-70 and didn’t have any scholarship offers. Really, now, was flying all the way to San Francisco to watch a right-handed pitcher from Stuart Hall High throw a single bullpen session a wise way for Kansas University baseball coach Ritch Price to use part of his recruiting Duncan budget? Um, yes. Penny for penny, Frank Duncan has been one of the wisest investments Price ever has made. Duncan threw the bullpen of his life that day and hasn’t stopped impressing Price and everyone else associated with the KU baseball program ever since. A sophomore, Duncan (6-7, 2.81) earned All-Big 12 second-team honors and twice this season was named Big 12 Pitcher of the Week. He ranks third in the conference in innings (1052⁄3), fifth in strikeouts (92), sixth in opponents’ batting average and has walked just 31 batters. A mutual friend put Price and Duncan together. Charlie Johnson, Duncan’s high school basketball coach, pitched for Price at Menlo College in 1983. “I finally twisted his arm into coming out here to see Frank,” Johnson said by phone from San Francisco. “We saw him throw in the oddest spot in the world, this funky old baseball field. We were able to stand right behind the fence that the catcher’s heel was butting up against. Frank had the best bullpen a kid could have. “It was a magical few minutes. It was kind of jawdropping. He was hitting all the spots.” Duncan’s so-so velocity scared away potential suitors, but Johnson remembered his old coach saying, “This kid’s got a college curveball right now.” Price visited the Duncan home that night and said he had a locker with Frank’s name on it if he wanted to be a Jayhawk. He did, even though it meant walking on without a nickel of scholarship money. Price figured with Luke Bradford supervising him in the weight room and pitching coach Ryan Graves teaching him to drop his arm slot a little, Duncan could gain the required velocity on a fastball complemented by a curve, slider and change-up. Price was right. Duncan’s heater, clocked in the lowto-mid 80’s in high school, has exploded into the 90’s. “It’s insane,” Duncan said of the difference lifting has made. “The ball feels lighter. My core, my arms and my legs are much stronger.” Duncan thanked his hoops coach for the connection. “As he was leaving for Kansas, he asked me what my favorite number was,” Johnson said. “I told him 19. And that’s why he wears 19.” No. 19 faces a Texas A&M team that has won seven in a row in a Big 12 championship first-round game today.

FREE STATE SENIOR AMBER HICKS (3) TRIES TO BLOCK THE KICK of Olathe East’s Haley Hanson in a Class 6A state quarterfinal game on Tuesday at the College Boulevard Activity Center in Olathe. The Firebirds fell to the Hawks, 4-0.

Unbeaten Olathe East overpowers Free State, 4-0, in state quarterfinals By Benton Smith

OLATHE — Free State High’s girls soccer team rarely has been outmatched on the field this season, the most successful in program history. Then again, not one team in the state has had an answer this year for unbeaten Olathe East, which knocked the Firebirds out of the postseason with a 4-0, Class 6A state quarterfinals victory on Tuesday at College Boulevard Activity Center. The Hawks (19-0) often proved bigger, stronger and faster than FSHS (12-5-2) — not by much, but enough to make a difference and advance O-East to the state semifinals. Hurting Free State’s margin for error early was a lack of offensive chances. While O-East senior Laura Schnell pounded a free kick for a score from about 40 yards out in the sixth minute, and teammates Haley Hanson and Kirstyn Corder scored in the final five minutes of the first half, the Firebirds, fresh off

Coach Kelly Barah said the Firebirds knew they couldn’t outrun O-East, so they tried to build attacks. “We just couldn’t connect that last pass to get us that look on goal,” Barah said. According to senior Kylee Loneker, the Hawks’ talent

level muddied Free State’s offense early on. “Olathe East is so good, we knew we weren’t gonna get as many opportunities as we usually do,” Loneker said. “Every single pass, every single throw, every single kick, it has to have a purpose to it. I think that’s why we were just so frantic.” Please see SOCCER, page 3B

Getting in was the goal, but the reward was not nearly as exhilarating as the road it traveled to reach it. Thanks to a pair of victories against bitter rival Missouri in last week’s regular-season finale, Kansas University’s baseball team snagged a spot in this week’s Big 12 tournament in Oklahoma City, which begins today at Chickasaw Bricktown Ballpark. As a result, the Jayhawks (22-32 overall, 7-16 Big 12) earned a match-up with No. 2 TOURNEY seed Texas TIME A&M (4114, 16-8), the What: Kansixth-ranked sas Univerteam in sity (22-32 the nation, overall, 7-16 which enters Big 12) vs. today’s 4 p.m. Texas A&M first pitch on (41-14, 16-8) a six-game w i n n i n g When: 4 p.m. Where: Oklastreak. The Ag- homa City gies’ offense ranks third in the Big 12 with a .292 team batting average and scores 5.3 runs per game. Junior outfielder Tyler Naquin is second in the conference with a .373 batting average, with 15 doubles, six triples and 17 stolen bases this season. Senior first baseman Jacob House hit his team-leading eighth homer in last weekend’s Oklahoma State series and finished the regular season with 50 RBIs, 12 doubles and a team-best .481 slugging percentage. Despite all of those stats and rankings staring down at them, the Jayhawks are treating this week with a nothingto-lose attitude. “We’ve been through a lot, especially this year,” senior third baseman Zac Elgie said of KU’s eight seniors. “And I think it’s fitting that we went to the Big 12 tournament our first two years here and we get to end here as well.” Joining Elgie in taking their final shot at Big 12 tournament glory are everyday players Jake Marasco, Chris Manship and James Stanfield, along with pitchers Jordan Jakubov and Matt Kohorst and reserves Jason Brunansky and Taylor Hart. Asked what type of legacy this year’s senior class would leave behind, Elgie pointed to his crew’s fun-loving spirit. Please see BASEBALL, page 3B

Hochevar better, but Yanks edge Royals The Associated Press

KANSAS CITY ROYALS CATCHER HUMBERTO QUINTERO (33) AND PITCHING COACH DAVE EILAND, CENTER, MEET with Royals starting pitcher Luke Hochevar, who loaded the bases, during the fifth inning against the Yankees on Tuesday in New York.

NEW YORK — Luke Hochevar was much more effective than usual against the New York Yankees. That still wasn’t enough to win. Robinson Cano homered, Phil Hughes beat Hochevar for the second time this month, and the slumping Yankees eked out a 3-2 victory over the Kansas City Royals on Tuesday night. New York tagged Hochevar for seven runs and seven hits over 21⁄3 innings May 6, and he entered this start 0-2 with an 8.83 ERA in four career games against the Yankees. He hung tough, though, coughing up a 2-0 lead but keeping Kansas City close when New York appeared poised to break loose. “He did a great job of controlling it and keeping

us in the game and giving us a chance to win,” Royals manager Ned Yost said. “I thought that he pitched very well.” Derek Jeter delivered a bases-loaded single that tied the score, and New York rallied from an early two-run deficit to snap a three-game skid. Shut out Monday in the series opener, the Yankees (22-21) went 2-for-7 with runners in scoring position — one night after they finished 0-for-13 in those situations for their worst performance with RISP since 1990. Hochevar (3-5) lost the lead in the fifth but pitched his way out of a major jam. The top pick in the 2006 amateur draft, he allowed three runs and six hits in 62⁄3 innings, striking out eight and walking three. “That fifth inning, that’s what really cost me,” Ho-

chevar said. “Going through the heart of the lineup, it’s a grind. But I just tried to stay on the attack and continue to make quality pitches and fight my way through the inning.” New York, which had lost six of seven to drop into a last-place tie with Boston in the AL East, now has eight hits in its last 79 at-bats (.101) with runners in scoring position. Hughes (4-5) gave up five hits in six innings while striking out seven, beating Hochevar for the second time in 17 days. The Yankees caught a break when Mike Moustakas lined into a double play to end the eighth. Rafael Soriano worked the ninth for his third save, retiring Alcides Escobar with a Please see ROYALS, page 3B

NFL passes rule for thigh, knee pads ATLANTA (AP) — The NFL has made thigh and knee pads mandatory equipment for the 2013 season, something the players’ union could oppose because the move was not collectively bargained. Atlanta Falcons president Rich McKay, chairman of the competition committee, said Tuesday at an owners meeting that because this is a playing rule, the league can apply it unilaterally. “We have a vote of the membership and can implement,� McKay said. “Some of us felt we were remiss that we took it out of the rule book — high school and college makes it mandatory

— and in our mind that is how it should be and will be in 2013. “We have some work to do with the union.� McKay said the league will meet with NFL Players Association representatives on the issue, something they have discussed in the past. The NFLPA did not immediately respond to a request for comment. The pads rule won’t go into effect until next year so equipment manufacturers can work on safety and comfort. McKay couldn’t see any negatives about adding the thigh and knee pads. “There’s no downside, they

have to add some sort of protection,� he said. “In our football system, everyone wears them up to our game. Common sense tells you it has to be safer for (protection against) thigh injuries and knee bruises. If players have worn it in Pop Warner, high school and college ... from a safety standpoint it is time to put it back in.� Former All-Pro safety Troy Vincent, now an NFL vice president, explained why there could be pushback from the players. “It’s psychological. Less pads you are faster, skinnier, that’s just the way I was introduced to the (pro) game,� he said. “It’s a culture shift. They will adjust.�

Should a player not have the pads on when he enters a game, he will be sent off the field by a game official. “It’s the same as if he ran on without a helmet,� McKay said. “It is a safety rule.� The owners also voted to move the trading deadline from after Week 6 to after Week 8, and to allow one “marquee� player placed on injured reserve to return to practice after the sixth game and to the lineup after the eighth game. That player must be on the 53-man roster after the final preseason cut. Terrell Suggs, the 2011 Defensive Player of the Year, could fall into that category.

Another weekend, another PR crisis for the ACC. Another weekend, another chorus of tweets, blogs and columns forecasting the conference’s demise. All of which bring to mind the following lines. “Lighten up, Francis,� Sergeant Hulka said to Psycho in the movie “Stripes.� “‘I don’t know’ is one of the most exciting sentences in the English language,� writer Anna Quindlen told Bucknell’s graduates Sunday. Alas, lightening up and conceding the unknown don’t play in the Twitterverse. So “Florida State might consider leaving the ACC for the Big 12� becomes “Florida State is leaving, according to my sources.� And if FSU is bailing, then by God, Clemson must be, too. And if the Seminoles and Tigers are out, then the ACC loses all national football relevance, which will force Virginia Tech, Miami and perhaps others to exit as well. Could any or all of that happen? Absolutely. Nothing short of Virginia Tech and Virginia in the Pacific 12 seems off the table in a realignment circus driven by fear and ambition. Has anyone in charge at Florida State or Clemson agreed to leave the ACC? I don’t believe so for a second, but I certainly don’t know. Igniting the latest tempest was Friday’s agreement between the Big 12 and Southeastern Conference to pit their football champions in a new postseason game. If one or both of those champs is otherwise preoccupied in the four-team national playoff expected to emerge in 2014, then others from those leagues will participate. Combine the SEC-Big 12 hook-up with the Big TenPacific 12 marriage in the Rose Bowl, and you have the ACC and Big East appearing to lag far behind. On-the-field performance says that’s where they belong, but the reality is unpleasant nonetheless. The SEC, Big 12, Big Ten and Pac-12 could go nuclear by attempting to make the Rose Bowl and the new SEC-Big 12 bowl the de facto national semifinals, but such a move almost certainly would prompt anti-trust claims by those excluded. Naturally, the Big 12 and SEC plan to award their event to the highest-bidding venue and television network, widening the money gap between the ACC and the SEC, Big 12, Big Ten and Pac-12. The ACC’s new, 15-year media-rights contract with ESPN is worth approximately $17 million annually per school, a 30-percent increase. By summer’s end, the Big Four conferences all figure to have arrangements worth $20 million-plus per school.

NBA COMMISSIONER DAVID STERN SPEAKS AT A NEWS CONFERENCE Tuesday in San Francisco during an announcement that the Golden State Warriors want to build an arena on the waterfront in San Francisco.

Warriors reveal plan to move to San Francisco SAN FRANCISCO — Sitting along the shore and staring at one of the world’s most majestic metropolitan views, Joe Lacob leaned over to hear fellow Golden State Warriors co-owner Peter Guber whisper in his ear. “Man,� Guber said, “we got to do this.� And with that, the franchise’s new vision started to come into focus. The Warriors, NBA Commissioner David Stern and San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee officially announced Tuesday that the Bay Area’s only NBA team will try to move back to scenic San Francisco. The earliest the team could leave Oakland would be 2017, when it can escape its lease at Oracle Arena. “We can turn this dream into a goal by giving it urgency,� said Guber, the movie mogul and Mandalay Entertainment’s chief executive. “We will play here in 2017. Take that as a promise that we will fulfill. There will be a world-class entertainment venue. We’re all-in.� The still-in-the-works project has a spot picked out that few can match. The Warriors unveiled some of the plans for the estimated $500 million, privately funded arena on a sun-soaked day at Piers 30-32. The waterfront site near the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge — one of the most beautiful views in one of the world’s most beautiful cities — is just blocks from the Giants’ ballpark and the downtown financial district. “This natural amphitheater is second to none anywhere in the world,� California Lt. Gov. and former San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom said. Under the proposed deal, the city will provide the site and the Warriors will repair the crumbling piers at a cost of $75-100 million. There will be no new taxes and no money from the city’s general fund. Lacob and Guber have been working to return the team to the City by the Bay since buying the Warriors for a league-record $450 million in 2010. The Warriors played in San Francisco from 1962 to 1971 after moving from Philadelphia.


OKC fight unrelated to game OKLAHOMA CITY — A late-night fight in Oklahoma City that escalated into gunfire and left eight people injured — one critically — was not related to the Thunder-Lakers NBA playoff game that had just ended a few blocks away, police said Tuesday. Police Capt. Dexter Nelson said no arrests have been made in the Monday night incident in Oklahoma City’s Bricktown entertainment district. Police say Rodney Hill, 19, was taken into custody Tuesday afternoon, but no other details have been released.

Knicks, Woodson near deal NEW YORK — The New York Knicks and coach Mike Woodson are completing a multiyear deal that could be announced this week, a person with knowledge of the situation said Tuesday. Woodson led the Knicks to an 18-6 record and

a first-round playoff loss to Miami as interim coach after replacing Mike D’Antoni on March 14. The Knicks’ victory in Game 4 of the series ended an NBA-record, 13-game postseason losing streak that dated to 2001.


Goodell addresses Vilma suit ATLANTA — NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell has briefly addressed the defamation lawsuit filed against him by New Orleans Saints linebacker Jonathan Vilma after he suspended Vilma for the 2012 season. Goodell also spoke Tuesday about the league’s relationship with the players union, which has been marked by recent contentiousness, including grievances, appeals and the suit. Goodell says he has “not spent a lot of time� on Vilma’s lawsuit, which contends that the commissioner made false statements that tarnished Vilma’s reputation and hindered his ability to earn a living playing football.


Virginia Tech lands transfer BLACKSBURG, VA. — New Virginia Tech men’s basketball coach James Johnson has landed his first player. Johnson says guard Adam Smith is transferring from UNC Wilmington to the Hokies. Smith started 29 games for the Seahawks as a freshman and was second on the team with a 13.7-point scoring average. He did some of his best work in the biggest games, scoring 32 against Wake Forest and 23 against Maryland. The Jonesboro, Ga., native will have three years of eligibility remaining after sitting out the coming season.


ISU WR Gary gets probation AMES, IOWA — Iowa State wide receiver Albert Gary has been sentenced to three years of probation after pleading guilty to first-degree theft. Gary also pleaded guilty Monday in district court in Ames to a charge of going armed with intent. Gary and others were charged with robbing a man on campus with a BB gun last June.


Baylor coach honored OKLAHOMA CITY — Steve Smith has been chosen as the Big 12’s coach of the year after leading Baylor to a record 18-game winning streak during conference play. Smith was honored Tuesday at a luncheon previewing the Big 12 tournament, which starts today in Oklahoma City. Baylor catcher Josh Ludy was named player of the year, and designated hitter Nathan Orf is the newcomer of the year. Oklahoma State lefty Andrew Heaney won pitcher of the year, while Texas pitcher Parker French earned freshman of the year honors.

T-Rob aiming high in upcoming draft By Gary Bedore

Former Kansas University power forward Thomas Robinson, who is projected as the No. 2 pick overall in the NBA Draft by and — and No. 4 selection by — still thinks he has a shot at the top spot. “I think I’m very capable of being the No. 1 pick,” Robinson told on Tuesday following a workout at an undisclosed location. “No disrespect to Anthony D a v i s (of Kentucky). He’s a g r e a t Robinson player. But at the same time, as a competitor, I do feel that I’m worthy of the No. 1 pick.” The 6-foot-9 Robinson, a first-team All-American

No disrespect to Anthony Davis. He’s a great player. But at the same time, as a competitor, I do feel that I’m worthy of the No. 1 pick.” — Former Kansas University power forward (and likely top-five NBA Draft pick) Thomas Robinson and Big 12 Player of the Year, impressed Hoopsworld on Tuesday by showing a soft touch from three-point land. “It’s just a confidence thing,” Robinson said. “I feel like I’ve been a good shooter, I just needed the time and reps to get it up, and now is the time to do it since I’m going to the next level. I just want to show people that I can step out and hit the shot too.” The full Robinson interview is available at The 2012 NBA Draft will be held on June 28 in Newark, N.J.

O Combine invites: KU’s Thomas Robinson and Tyshawn Taylor are two of 60 college players invited to the NBA Draft combine June 7-8 in Chicago, according to Missouri’s Marcus Denmon and Kim English, Baylor’s Quincy Acy, Quincy Miller and Perry Jones, Texas’ J’Covan Brown, A&M’s Khris Middleton and Iowa State’s Royce White have also been invited. O Roundball Classic: The fourth-annual Rock Chalk Roundball Classic will be held at 7 p.m., June 14, at Free State High’s gym.

Ex-KU O-line commitment hoping to catch on at BYU By Matt Tait

the place and now that I’m a member of the church (of Latter Day Saints), I want to go there and play football for them more than anything. I’m hoping that the coaches there get in touch with me and offer me a scholarship because it’s really the only school I want to play for right now.”

Former Kansas University commitment Phil Ford, a 6-foot-6, 330-pound offensive lineman from Bishop Miege High in Roeland Park, appears to have a growing fondness for BYU, according to a blog on the Deseret News’ website. Ford, who signed with KU in February 2011 but failed to qualify academically, has been in constant contact with coaches from Kansas since leaving the state to play junior-college ball at Iowa Western CC, where he red-shirted during the 2011-12 season. A recent change in religion, however, has Ford strongly considering BYU. “BYU sounds like the perfect school for me,” Ford told the blog earlier this month. “Everyone I talk to absolutely loves

Future NFL prospects Although the 2012 NFL Draft is not even a month old, many experts and analysts have begun looking ahead to next year and beyond. Mel Kiper Jr., of ESPN, recently released a quickhitter look at his top five seniors- and juniors-to-be at each position. Two Jayhawks made the list. Senior left tackle Tanner Hawkinson, a cocaptain and multi-year starter, was listed as the fifth-best offensive tackle

go-lucky people, and we love to play the game,” he said. “We’re always smiling, and even if things aren’t going well on the field, we’re still pretty upbeat, and I think that’s really helped us in the long run.” Although the Jayhawks are decided underdogs in today’s opener, Elgie and company identified a few things that fell in their favor. “I honestly think we have a pretty good chance,” Elgie said. “They’re not moving up their weekend pitchers to pitch against us, they’re throwing their midweek guy. Obviously, he pitches for one of the top 10 teams in the nation, but he’s a freshman, and it’s his first time on this stage.” That mid-week guy is right-hander Daniel Mengden, who owns a 2-3 record and a 3.29 ERA. As a team, A&M’s pitching staff led the Big 12 with a 2.78 ERA and held opponents to a .234 batting average. Mengden did not start during the regular-season series in Lawrence —

— Kansas University’s Zac Elgie A&M won two of three — but fanned a pair of hitters in relief during KU’s 5-3 victory against the Aggies on April 15. While A&M will dig deep for its starting pitcher, Kansas will go with its ace. Sophomore Frank Duncan (6-7, 2.81 ERA, 92 strikeouts, 31 walks) will start on the mound for the Jayhawks. Duncan held opponents to a .217 batting average this season, good for third-lowest in team history. Kansas will meet either third-seeded Texas or sixth-seeded Missouri in its second game of the Big 12 tourney on Thursday. If KU defeats Texas A&M, it would play the winner of the Texas-Missouri game at 7:30 p.m., while a loss would force KU to play the loser of the Texas-Missouri match-up at 12:30 p.m. in an elimination game. “We’re excited to play on the bigger stage and step up our game a little bit and leave it all out there,” Elgie said.

available in next year’s draft. And junior Ron Doherty was penciled in as the fourth-best punter of the bunch. While those were the only Jayhawks who made Kiper’s top fives, this year’s team figures to have several more guys who will draw interest from NFL scouts throughout the course of the 2012 season. Included among them are: quarterback Dayne Crist, offensive lineman Duane Zlatnik, safety Bradley McDougald, defensive end/linebacker Toben Opurum, cornerback Greg Brown, receivers/return men D.J. Beshears and Daymond Patterson as well as a few other fifth-year transfers in defensive end Josh Williams (Nebraska), tight end Mike Ragone (Notre Dame) and linebacker Anthony McDonald (Notre Dame).

TONGANOXIE — The Tonganoxie High girls soccer program earned its first trip to state with a dramatic 1-0 defeat of De Soto on Tuesday night at THS. Chieftains sophomore Emily Soetaert scored the only goal of the Class 4-1A state quarterfinal game in the final minute of regulation. The victory was the eighth in a row for THS (10-8-1), which will play Friday in a state semifinal at Rose Hill against Topeka Hayden.

FREE STATE GOALKEEPER ELENA AUER DIVES FOR A BALL late in the second period of a Class 6A quarterfinal game against Olathe East on Tuesday at the College Boulevard Activity Center in Olathe. The shot was wide-left of the goal, but the Firebirds still fell to the Hawks, 4-0.


Thanks to strong defensive play from Free State’s Olivia Hodison, Rylee Fuerst, Jessica Ferguson and others, Olathe East went 30 minutes without scoring in the first half. At that juncture it seemed the underdog Firebirds might have a chance at scoring an upset. But Hanson turned and fired a goal from about 20 yards out in the 36th minute, and Corder beat FSHS goalkeeper Elena Auer to a loose ball at the top of the box, then put it away, less than two minutes later. Said junior Abbey Casady: “It didn’t even hit me until halftime that we were actually down three goals. There wasn’t any doubt in my mind that we could’ve came back, but that’s just not how it happened.” The Hawks didn’t net their final goal until the 56th minute, when Lauren Zach set up Corder for her second score of the night. Barah said O-East made solid plays to earn the playoff win. “All and all,” he added, “we think we could’ve done a better job of defending some of the goals.” Free State at least was able to find more shots in the second half. Eight minutes in, Loneker sent a free kick to Hadyn


runner on third to end Kansas City’s five-game winning streak away from home. Alex Rodriguez fielded Escobar’s grounder behind third base and made a high throw across the diamond. Mark Teixeira stretched out his 6-foot-3 frame and kept his toe on the bag as New York got the call on a bang-bang play. “I don’t think there’s many other first basemen in the league that could stretch like that and make that play,” Hughes said. “Had ‘em all the way,” Jeter said. Cano put the Yankees on the scoreboard with a long solo homer in the fourth, making him 6-for12 with three home runs and nine RBIs against

Less than four minutes later, Chelsea Casady fed Maddie Dieker in front of the goal on the left side, and O-East goalkeeper Lindsey Lyman got just enough fingertips on the shot to deny the Firebirds a goal. Later, in transition, Margaux Gill hit Loneker, who scooted a pass to open teammate Katie Sarraf, but the pass was intercepted. Twice in the final 20 minutes, Loneker’s powerful right leg was denied on long, booming shots — first by the cross bar, then by Lyman.

With 10 minutes to go, Dieker had a shot swallowed up by the Hawks goalkeeper.

Russell Martin was grazed by a pitch and Dewayne Wise reached on a perfectly placed bunt single even though the Royals were expecting a sacrifice. Once again, the Yankees had the bases loaded and none out with big hitters coming up. They came up empty in that situation during Monday night’s 6-0 defeat, but not this time. Jeter dumped an RBI single into right and Curtis Granderson drove in a run with a groundout, giving New York a 3-2 lead. Cano was intentionally walked to load the bases for Rodriguez, and the Yankees had a chance to really bust it open. But Rodriguez struck out, drawing boos from the crowd of 37,674, and Raul Ibanez went down swinging as well. New York never managed another base-runner.

Astros 2, Cubs 1 HOUSTON — J.D. Martinez hit the go-ahead RBI single in the sixth inning, and Jose Altuve had a solo homer to give the Astros a victory over the Cubs. The loss extends Chicago’s losing skid to a season-long eight games. The hit by Martinez was the first for Houston since the first inning, but Justin Maxwell and Carlos Lee both drew two-out walks before it to set up Rangers 3, Mariners 1 the score.

MIAMI’S LEBRON JAMES, LEFT, DRIVES TO THE BASKET against Indiana’s Danny Granger. The Heat defeated the Pacers, 115-83, on Tuesday night in Miami.

Heat hammer Pacers ————

Miami takes 3-2 series lead MIAMI (AP) — Miami took a big step forward. Indiana lost two forwards. Suddenly, the road back to the Eastern Conference finals no longer looks daunting for the Heat. LeBron James scored 30 points, Dwyane Wade added 28, and the Heat moved a win away from the NBA’s final four with a 115-83 victory over the hurting Pacers on Tuesday night. The Heat lead the bestof-seven East semifinals 3-2, with Game 6 in Indiana on Thursday night. “This is our challenge right now, to leave it behind us,” Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said. “A lot of good things tonight, but we have to focus on the next one.” James added 10 rebounds and eight assists. Shane Battier scored 13 points, Mario Chalmers had eight points and 11 rebounds, and Udonis Haslem finished with 10 points for Miami, which never trailed, held a 22-2 edge in fast-break points and shot a franchise playoff-record 61 percent — best of any team in the playoffs this season. Paul George scored 11 points for Indiana, with starting forwards Danny Granger and David West adding 10 points apiece. Granger left with a sprained left ankle in the third quarter, and West left with what the Pacers called a left knee sprain at the end of that period. X-rays on Granger were negative, and he’s listed as day-to-day. It was an 11-point game when Granger departed early in the third quarter, and the Heat outscored the Pacers by 21 the rest of the way. “We learned early in this series, you don’t get two wins for a blowout,” Pacers coach Frank Vogel said. A series marked by ugly moments had more, with two flagrant fouls in the second quarter and another with 19.4 seconds remaining when Miami reserve center Dexter Pittman went across the lane to send a forearm into the chin area of Indiana’s Lance Stephenson — who was caught on camera making a choke sign toward James during the Pacers’ Game 3 win, drawing the ire of the Miami locker room. “Game 6 is going to be physical,” Wade said. “We’ve got to understand that this team has a lot of pride. Their crowd is going to be ready. They’re going to come out with a

lot of energy. We’ve got to withstand that first hit and still be standing. We’re ready for it.” Miami, which had gotten into quick deficits in each of the first four games, was the team that started hot in Game 5, running out to a 19-8 lead on the strength of three 3-pointers from Battier — who had been 2 for 19 from the field in the first four games of the series. Battier left his mark in many ways, even stopping a 3-on-1 Indiana break to set up a score by Wade at the other end. “Shane came out very aggressive,” Wade said. “When the ball starts going down for him, you know it’s a great day because it keeps the floor spread.” But much like the Heat did in Game 4 when Indiana threatened to turn things into an early runaway, the Pacers settled down in a hurry. The Pacers made Wade see blood early on, a couple of early flagrant fouls reminding everyone that these teams don’t seem to like each other much. Tyler Hansbrough struck first, hitting Wade on a play where the 2006 NBA finals MVP wound up with a cut over his right eye, similar to what Haslem received at Indiana in Game 4. So Haslem retaliated against Hansbrough not long afterward, earning a flagrant-1 foul that left the Pacers saying it should merit a flagrant-2 and automatic ejection. “Referee’s call,” Vogel said. Even after facing the big deficit, Indiana even had two shots to tie or take the lead late in the first half, the second of those a three-point try from Granger with 3:03 remaining. It didn’t go down. He did. Granger landed on James’ foot after the shot, spraining his left ankle and leaving the game.

What’s in a name? A lot of thought, testing — and trials By Candice Choi Associated Press

NEW YORK — “MONDEWHAAAAT?” The sarcasm was palpable in the one-word headline that appeared in The New York Post on the day after Kraft Foods revealed that it planned to name its new global snack business “Mondelez,” an interpretation of a mash-up of the Latin words for “world” and “delicious.” But that wasn’t the only dig. One blogger teased that she would’ve been “stifling giggles” if she’d been in meetings to determine the name. A Forbes contributor suggested a trick for remembering how to say it: “Just think Bush Administration Secretary of State. You know, Mon-deleza Rice.” Crain’s Business Chicago tittered that it bears close resemblance to a vulgar Russian term for a sexual act. Michael Mitchell, a Kraft spokesman, said executives took all the joking in stride, and he’s quick to point out why the Crain’s observation didn’t alarm the company: “The name has to be mispronounced to get that unfortunate meaning.” The made-up moniker, pronounced “mon-dahLEEZ,” became a punch line after it was unveiled in March. Today, Kraft shareholders will decide whether to approve the name for the company’s business that sells global snack brands such as Oreos, Fig Newton and Cadbury. The four-month odyssey of how “Mondelez” was picked — and how it was received — illustrates the great pains companies take to come up with powerful names for their businesses, products and services. For them, it’s akin to parents obsessing over a name for their newborn: it’s a moniker that sticks for better or worse, so it better be good. “You have to generate thousands of ideas, even if it’s just for a cookie,” said Nik Contis, the global director of naming at brand-

Kraft spins off international division with a new moniker: Mondelez ing company Siegel+Gale. That’s just what Kraft did after it decided to split into two publicly traded companies — one for its North American grocery business that makes products like Oscar Mayer and Miracle Whip and the other a bigger company to focus on selling snacks worldwide. It was clear to executives at Kraft’s Northfield, Ill., headquarters that the name of the snack business would have to appeal to a global audience. So the world’s biggest maker of sweet snacks started the arduous process of picking a name in November by soliciting suggestions from its 126,000 employees. On its internal website, Kraft proclaimed that it would host a naming contest. The announcement included a “mood video” set to music and showing images of life milestones, such as a wedding and a baby’s birth. Employees were encouraged to make suggestions through an “Idea Kitchen” page, where they could see and build off of the suggestions of their peers.

Hundreds of ideas More than 1,000 employees submitted more than 1,700 entries. Discarded name candidates ranged from the cultivated (“Panvoro,” Latin for eating) to the not-socultivated (“tfark,” which is Kraft spelled backward) to the outright cryptic (“Arrtx” — the employee who suggested it provided no explanation on what the letters signified). Once the suggestions started rolling in, Kraft’s global marketing team took the reins of the naming process. An outside branding firm from London was hired and a handful of top contenders were picked. (Kraft declined to reveal the finalists, noting

that “there may be some value in those names” for other purposes down the road.) The names went through two rounds of testing with native speakers in 28 different languages. Consumers in small focus groups were asked again and again if any of the names conjured up negative associations. “Mondelez,” a favorite among Kraft executives from the get-go, didn’t raise any big red flags. Still, the company discovered that there might be a problem. Consumer testers flagged the possible misinterpretation of “Mondelez” for a Russian term meaning “oral sex.” But the issue was referred to Kraft’s Russian business unit, which in turn deemed it to be “low risk.” So the name was given the thumbs up.

Building brands It’s not unusual for companies to take a calculated risk with names. Even though they’re aware that the names they introduce could elicit negative reactions at first, experts say the snide remarks often subside as the brand strengthens. After all, there were plenty of snickers when Apple Inc. unveiled the iPad, which critics said sounded like a high-tech feminine hygiene product. Now, the iPad is by far the No. 1 selling tablet worldwide. Then there’s the classic example in the 1970s of the Chevrolet car called Nova, which means “no go” in Spanish. Despite urban legend, a Chevy spokesman said the model sold well in Latin America because the term is pronounced differently there. That’s what Conti, the branding expert, is guessing would happen if shareholders decide to vote in favor of naming Kraft’s

‘Pink slime’ name almost no-brainer By Candice Choi Associated Press

So I called it ‘pink slime,’” said Gerald Zirnstein, the former meat inspector at the USDA. “It resonates, doesn’t it?” The pithy description fueled an uproar that resulted in the main company behind the filler, Beef Products Inc., deciding to close three meat plants this month. The controversy over the filler, which is made of fatty bits of beef that are heated and treated with ammonium to kill bacteria, shows how a simple nickname can forever change an entire industry. In fact, the beef filler had been used for decades before the nickname came about. But most Americans didn’t know — or care — about it before Zirnstein’s vivid moniker was quoted in a 2009 article by The New York Times on the safety

THE BEEF PRODUCT KNOWN AS LEAN FINELY TEXTURED BEEF, or “pink slime,” is displayed during a plant tour of Beef Products Inc. in South Sioux City, Neb., where the product is made. Gerald Zirnstein, the microbiologist who coined the term “pink slime,” says it came to him in the spur of the moment as he was composing an email to a coworker at the U.S. Department of Agriculture a decade ago. of meat processing methods. Soon afterward, celebrity chef Jamie Oliver began railing against it. McDonald’s and other fast food companies later discontinued their use of it. And major supermarket chains including Kroger and Stop & Shop vowed to stop selling beef with the lowcost filler. Bettina Siegel, a food blogger who posted an online petition asking the USDA to stop using the filler in school lunches, said the controversy isn’t based on the term alone. She said consumers are just upset that the filler is not what they think they’re getting when they buy “100 percent ground beef.” But Siegel acknowledges that the name doesn’t hurt her cause, either. She said the term “filled a vacuum” in the public arena about the filler; her petition, “Tell the USDA to STOP Using Pink Slime in School Food” had more than 200,000 signatures within a week. Beef Products, which

makes the filler, blames its plant closings on what it calls unfounded attacks. About 650 jobs will be lost when plants in Amarillo, Texas, Garden City, Kan., and Waterloo, Iowa, close on Friday. Another plant in South Sioux City, Neb., will remain open but run at reduced capacity. Still, the company, based in South Dakota, said it’s not considering changing the filler’s name. Instead, Beef Products set up a website, beefisbeef. com, to combat what it calls “media-perpetuated myths” about the filler. Meanwhile, the author of the term “pink slime” makes no apologies about his creation. Zirnstein, who has since left the USDA, said he thinks “pink slime” is a better descriptor than “lean finely textured beef.” “It says it’s lean. Great. But it doesn’t describe what kind of lean it is,” said Zirnstein, who doesn’t think the product should be mixed into beef. “Textured. What does that mean?”

Healthy food can cost less, study finds Fork ————

Many mistakenly believe that junk food more economical By Sam Hananel Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Is it really more expensive to eat healthy? An Agriculture Department study released last week found that most fruits, vegetables and other healthy foods cost less than foods high in fat, sugar and salt. That counters a common perception among some consumers that it’s cheaper to eat junk food than a nutritionally balanced meal. The government says it all depends on how you measure the price. If you compare the price per calorie — as some previous researchers have done — then higher-calorie pastries and processed snacks might seem like a bargain compared with fruits and vegetables. But comparing the cost of foods by weight or portion size shows that grains, vegetables, fruit and dairy foods are less expensive than most meats or foods high in saturated fat, added sugars or salt. That means bananas, carrots, lettuce and pinto beans are all less expensive per portion than French fries, soft drinks, ice cream or ground beef. “Using price per calorie doesn’t tell you how much food you’re going to get or how full you are going to feel,” said Andrea Carlson, scientist at the USDA’s Economic Research Service and an author of the study. For example, eating a chocolate glazed doughnut with 240 calories might not satiate you but a banana with 105 calories just might. In the comparisons, the USDA researchers used national average prices from Nielsen Homescan data, which surveyed a panel of households that recorded all food purchas-

An Agriculture Department study released last Wednesday found that most fruits, vegetables and other healthy foods cost less than foods high in fat, sugar and salt. That counters a common perception among some consumers that it’s cheaper to eat junk food than a nutritionally balanced meal. es over a year from retail outlets. The cost of eating healthy foods has been the subject of growing debate as experts warn Americans about the dangers of obesity. More than a third of U.S. adults are obese, according to the government, and researchers expect that number to grow to 42 percent by 2030. “Cheap food that provides few nutrients may actually be ‘expensive’ for the consumer from a nutritional economy perspective, whereas food with a higher retail price that provides large amounts of nutrients may actually be quite cheap,” the study said. The USDA study criticizes a 2010 report from researchers at the University of Washington, which found that calorie-forcalorie junk food is more

cost-effective for low-income people than eating healthy. Adam Drewnowski, director of the Nutritional Sciences Program at the University of Washington and lead author of the prior study, said he stands by his findings that a healthier diet generally costs more. He said there is no government recommendation for how many pounds of food an American should eat each day, but there are federal guidelines that suggest a 2,000 calorie diet. “Some of these calories are in fact empty calories, so from the standpoint of nutrition they are not terrific,” Drewnowski said. “But the empty calories keep you from being hungry, and this is why people buy them, especially lower-income people.” Margo Wootan, a nu-

trition advocate with the Center for Science in the Public Interest, said some people don’t think they get as much value from fruits and vegetables as they get from other foods. “If they buy a bag of chips for $2, they think it’s a good deal, but if they buy a bag of apples for $2, they think it’s a lot,” Wootan said. “We need to do more to help people understand that fruits and vegetables are not as expensive as they think they are.” Wootan said shopping smart can make healthy eating more affordable. Consumers should be more flexible about choosing less expensive fruits and vegetables that are in season and supplementing those with frozen or canned fruits and vegetables so they don’t have to throw away as much.

His grandmother didn’t use written recipes, but years ago Minkin’s mother wrote them down and passed them on to him. brittle, yellowed pieces of notepaper. Minkin tries to be inventive in his own cooking. In the 1970s, when he was the cook at Children’s Hour Headstart, his philosophy was featured in a local community cookbook. “Cooking should be fun and creative,” he was quoted as saying. “Cooking only by recipe is like painting by number — good but just like everyone else’s. Once you have a basic understanding of cooking and food, the fun of improvising comes in.” Kain’s flodin recipe was more notes than specifics. In the version below, we’ve filled in a few steps to help cooks who feel less comfortable improvising.

Henrietta Kain’s Flodin Makes two loaves 1 cake yeast* 2 1/2 cups lukewarm water 2 tablespoons sugar 3 tablespoons oil 1 teaspoon salt 3 eggs Flour (at least 6 cups) 8-10 ounces dry curd cottage cheese 2-3 tablespoons butter, melted 8-ounce carton sour cream

In a large bowl, crumble yeast into water, dissolve. Add sugar, oil, salt and 2 eggs. Mix well. Add enough flour to make a loose dough (about 6 to 7 cups). On a floured board, knead. Let dough rise, knead again. Let rise a second time. Punch down. Heat the oven to 350 F. Mix cottage cheese, 1 egg and melted butter. Butter two bread pans. Place one-fourth of the dough in each. Spread with cottage cheese mixture. Spread the remaining dough on top of cottage cheese, pinching edges to bottom layer of dough. Brush with butter and slash top to vent. Place in oven about 20 minutes. Spread with sour cream, brown slowly until bread is cooked, another 20-30 minutes. * Cake yeast, so-called because it’s sold in cake form, is fresh (rather than dried) and also known as wet or compressed yeast. If you can’t find fresh yeast, a 0.25-ounce packet of dry yeast is equivalent to a 0.6-ounce cake of yeast, according to redstaryeast. com.

IVY TRAVIS CHOPS PEPPERS and other ingredients for a spinach salad. The recipe was handed down from her mother-in-law, and has become a Memorial Day tradition.

Edible heirlooms

Favorite recipes one of best ways to remember loved ones By Sara Shepherd

Some of the most valuable family treasures may not be expensive or breakable. And it’s unlikely you’ll find them itemized in anyone’s will (in fact, they may not be written down at all). While Memorial Day was officially created to honor America’s war dead, many people now take the holiday as an opportunity to remember other deceased loved ones and to spend time — often around the table — with those who are still living. And sometimes, there’s nothing quite like the smell of homemade bread or the crunch of bacon on a spinach salad to revive fond memories of the special person who used to cook them. This week, we asked a few Lawrence residents to share their favorite

A Memorial Day staple, made healthier When Marty Travis was alive, relatives gathered each Memorial Day weekend at her New Hampshire home, where they knew her famous bacon-and-egg-topped spinach salad would be on the table. Her daughter-in-law Ivy Travis, Lawrence, eventually took over preparing that salad. Through the years, Travis applied what she’s learned as a Douglas County Extension master

food volunteer and Johnson County Community College culinary student to evolve the original dish, making tweaks to improve its flavor and nutritional value (the more colors, the better, Travis says). The salad remains a surefire hit, Travis said. Though her mother-inlaw died in 1998, Travis and her husband, Michael Travis, still serve the salad each Memorial Day when they gather with friends. “Anytime I bring this, people always want the recipe,” Travis said. “They love this salad.” Travis said her own mother cooked mostly meat and potatoes and wasn’t big on involving

him and also outside the home. I have contributed as much as he has to build our life together. This is obviously not how I envisioned our retirement, but I have had enough and am finally ready to begin a new life without him. Where do I start? — Beyond Sad Dear Beyond: With counseling. Not necessarily to save your marriage but to help you move forward in whatever direction helps you. After 40 years, there may be a great deal

‘Idol’ crowns a winner Is the two-hour “American Idol” (7 p.m., Fox) finale a very big deal, or an instantly forgettable bore? There are arguments for both conclusions. Any program that ranks as the most watched on American television and attracts more than 90 million participating “voters” who decide the show’s top two finalists has to be seen as a significant force in entertainment. At the same time, “Idol” viewership is down some 25 percent from last season. We may not yet know the winner’s name, but it is all but certain that Fox’s attempt to duplicate the show’s dominance with “XFactor” hurt “Idol” and added to an overall sense of talent contest fatigue. I’ve heard baseball referred to as islands of activity in a sea of statistics. “Idol” finales have fleeting seconds of drama buried beneath a landfill of hoopla that not even a performance by Rihanna can redeem. Perhaps Jennifer Lopez can sing the Clash’s “Should I Stay or Should I Go” to address concerns about her possible departure. Following an “Idol” tradition, the all-but anointed Joshua Ledet was voted off last week. In weeks past, Randy Jackson and Lopez had praised him to the skies, comparing him favorably to any “Idol” talent. And right after his departure, “Idol” producer Nigel Lythgoe tweeted that his favorite had been eliminated. Now that Ledet has gone the way of Jennifer Hudson, the talent competition — or popularity contest — comes down to Jessica Sanchez and Phillip Phillips. May the best second-best talent win!

 Also wrapping up its season tonight is “Modern Family” (8 p.m., ABC). This may not be as dramatic as “Glee,” but we do learn where Haley is headed after high school, and how the un-girly Alex enjoys her first prom experience. Elsewhere on the parenting front, Mitch and Cam’s attempt to adopt a sibling for Lily requires some assistance from Gloria, leaving the hapless Jay and Manny in the baby-sitting lurch.

Tonight’s other finales

 One Heck of a wedding plan on “The Middle” (7 p.m., ABC).

  Feeling accepted, June finds Chloe’s pace exhausting on “Don’t Trust the B— in Apartment 23” (8:30 p.m., ABC). Now that was a short season.

 An underage escort expires at a bachelor party on “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit” (9 p.m., NBC).

 A sudden shock sends several schemes off the rails on “Revenge” (9 p.m., ABC). Tonight’s other highlights

 It’s not even Memorial Day yet and the Travel Channel has cut ahead in line to show “Top 5: Killer Coasters” (7 p.m.).


Actress Barbara Barrie is 81. Actress Joan Collins is 79. Actor Charles Kimbrough is 76. Actress Lauren Chapin is 67. Actor-comedian Drew Carey is 54. Actressmodel Karen Duffy is 51. Singer Jewel is 38. Actor Lane Garrison is 32. Actor Adam Wylie is 28.

of grief for the loss of your relationship, fear of the unknown future, worry about finances and loneliness, as well as the need to forgive. You have a great many choices and adjustments to make, and counseling will help you navigate. If you choose divorce, please also see an attorney. Good luck. Dear Annie: I have an ongoing dilemma about an extremely uncomfortable bed. My parents recently turned 80. They have a guestroom with a bed that desperately needs to be replaced. I can tolerate sleeping there if I am exhausted, but it is truly awful. My parents are not rich, so a new bed would be a major expense. But they don’t like handouts, so buying one for them might be resented. How do I tell them that my siblings and I would prefer to buy them a new


For Wednesday, May 23: You have a gift for effortlessly making friends this year. As a result, many of your long-term dreams could become realities. If you are single, you’ll meet several potential suitors and will have difficulty selecting. If you are attached, don’t fight over money — get separate checking accounts. The Stars Show the Kind of Day You’ll Have: 5-Dynamic; 4-Positive; 3-Average; 2-So-so; 1-Difficult Aries (March 21-April 19)  Sometimes even the best of intentions go haywire, making you wonder what your role in this mess was. At this point in time, you might have a very controlling boss or friend. Tonight: Happily head home. Taurus (April 20-May 20)  Communication runs amok, as someone might not do or say what you feel is needed in a certain circumstance. Clearly, someone you are dealing with wants to have things his or her way. Tonight: Visit with pals. Gemini (May 21-June 20)  Your vision and another person’s vision of what works might be in direct opposition. Choose not to make it an issue, and distance yourself appropriately. Tonight: Buy a new item for summer. Cancer (June 21-July 22)  You might feel that you are in an either-or situation. Don’t take others’ comments personally. Tonight: What you want to do. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)  You might choose to distance yourself some from all the goings-on around you. You feel as if someone is pushing too hard to have his or her way. Tonight: Take a personal night.

mattress rather than spend the money staying in a motel? I don’t want to embarrass or offend them. — Bad Back Dear Back: Your parents don’t sleep in the guestroom and have no idea how bad the bed is, nor are they in any hurry to replace something they don’t actually use. Their embarrassment would be temporary, so simply make the arrangements and then tell them, “Mom and Dad, it’s time to update your guestroom mattress. We’ve bought you one as a gift, since we are the ones who use it most.” Then say it’s a done deal, no argument, and give them the delivery date. It would help if one of you could be there ACROSS when it arrives. — Send questions to, or Annie’s Mailbox, P.O. Box 118190 Chicago, IL 60611.

 You will need to focus, as many people might attempt to distract you. Could an argument be building with a child or loved one? Tonight: Among friends. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)  Tension builds, as a respected elder, boss or parent demands that certain matters be done his or her way. Push easily comes to shove. Tonight: A force to be dealt with. Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)  You might want to rethink a personal situation. Talk to someone with more experience in such matters who is not involved. Tonight: Take in a different vision. Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)  Deal with each person individually, even if this isn’t the norm for you. Relating directly helps you establish needed boundaries. Tonight: Dinner for two. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)  You might want to rethink a personal issue rather than keep pushing to have your way. You might not realize how you are coming off. Tonight: Why not allow someone else to make the first move and choose the plans? Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)  You are concerned about finishing up an errand or completing a project. Your mind is elsewhere; therefore, you could cause yourself a problem. Tonight: Squeeze in some exercise. Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)  Your imagination takes over. Even when someone tries to be controlling, your sense of humor makes it close to impossible to take this person seriously. Tonight: Let the romantic in you out.

Dear Annie: After more than 40 years of devotion to my husband, I have finally realized what a stonehearted jerk he is. I have done everything in my power to love, respect and encourage him. But I’ve fallen into a pattern of picking up the pieces of my heart and overlooking my own hurt in order to give him another chance and keep peace in our home. All of this is “not important” to him, as he has told me numerous times. My marriage is terribly lonely. Year after year, his disinterest and disregard for my feelings have chipped away at the love I once had. I have fought hard to stay in his life, and he tells me, “So what?” and “Leave if you want to.” My pleadings fall on deaf ears, and he refuses to discuss it. I have raised our children and worked beside
