Local governments may have to increase taxes “

By Scott Rothschild

TOPEKA — Local officials say state legislators pulled a neat trick. They balanced the budget in the just completed legislative session without a tax increase. But they didn’t mention that their work could force local governments to increase taxes, cut services or a combination of both. That’s got Douglas County Administrator Craig Weinaug upset. “The elected officials who claim they are being fiscally responsible — they are balancing their budget by merely shifting their expenditures to anoth-

er level of government,” Weinaug said. “It’s not only irresponsible — it’s dishonest.” And it has been going on for years, especially during the last three legislative sessions when state tax revenues took a historic nose dive during the Great Recession.

Mental health Previous legislative commitments to public school students, the mentally ill, roads, community correction programs and other areas have all been cut back, forcing local agencies to cut back and search for revenue. “As the state shifts costs away from the state budget, Kansans can expect to see increases in

property taxes or reduction in The services,” said Melissa Wangemann, legislative services elected director and general counsel for officials who the Kansas Association of claim they Counties.

KANSAS CITY, MO. (AP) — Even before the deadly tornado struck Joplin, Mo., federal officials say they planned to modify the design of the new Kansas biosecurity lab to better withstand tornadoes and strong winds. The Department of Homeland Security is building a $650 million National Bio and AgroDefense Facility near Kansas State University in Manhattan. A spokesman told the Kansas City Star that the lab would be constructed to withstand 230 mph winds, a standard used for the nation’s nuclear power Critics have plants. DHS spokesman Chris warned that a Ortman said the new design standard exceeds tornado could those for a federally cause significant approved tornado shel- damage to the lab ter and that “the updated and an accidental design is now undergoing a third-party review release of deadly by a risk assessment pathogens. team” as a further guarantee of its safety. Critics have warned that a tornado could cause significant damage to the lab and an accidental release of deadly pathogens. Manhattan was hit by a tornado in 2008, though it was weaker than the Joplin storm, which had winds estimated to exceed 200 mph. “I’m not a meteorologist or an engineer, but I don’t think DHS has established that it would be safe,” said Tom Manney, a retired Kansas State University professor involved with a group called No NBAF in Kansas. The new lab is scheduled to be operational by 2018 and replace an aging laboratory at Plum Island, N.Y. The lab will conduct research on deadly plant and animal pathogens, including foot-and-mouth disease. A government study released last year concluded that a release of foot-and-mouth pathogens from the Kansas lab could cost the cattle industry more than $5 billion. Bill Bullard, director of a cattle producers’ lobbying group called R-CALF, also said that “the U.S. government has simply ignored the vagaries of weather which could well cause an inadvertent release of some very dangerous viruses.” Supporters said the design upgrades, including using reinforced concrete, tornado dampers and other devices, should adequately protect the public and livestock from an accidental Please see NBAF, page 5A

share information on how homeowners can save energy. Of particular interest is the staggered framing design being used to construct the two-bedroom home. At the home’s corners and along the windows are 2 inch-by-6 inch studs. Staggered in between are 2 inch-by-4 inch studs. The different sized lumber allows for insulation to be woven through the wall. “It eliminates thermal bridging, which can be caused by the two faces of the studs being able to touch both the conditioned and exterior space,” Tenants to Homeowner’s general contractor Jeremi Lewis said.

Kenneth Stewart Cooper Kenneth S. Cooper, 96, of Fircrest, Washington, passed away on June 2, 2011. Ken was born on June 23, 1915, in Kansas City, Missouri, the first child of Kenneth Caleb Cooper and Margaret Stewart. The family moved to Chicago, Illinois, and Ken attended Roosevelt School for his elementary education, and graduated from Englewood High School in June, 1932. Ken initially went to Cooper work for Santa Fe Railroad System as an electrician (for 35 cents per hour!). He was transferred to San Francisco and managed to find time to take engineering classes at Cal Berkeley. In 1940 he heard of the Civilian Pilot Training Corps Program, and applied for this government-funded program. He was accepted into the program and he earned his pilot’s license in 1941. Shortly thereafter, he was recruited to fly for the Royal Canadian Air Force, which was desperately seeking American recruits to assist in the war against Germany. After Pearl Harbor Ken transferred his commission to the U.S. Navy and flew a variety of service and combat aircraft from air stations throughout the country and overseas. In August 1945, when Japan surrendered, Ken was training his PB4Y Navy bomber crew for participation in the potential invasion of Japan. In late August 1945, he was released from active duty and was soon hired to fly for Transcontinental and Western Airlines (TWA) based in San Francisco. In 1946, he met Norma Walter, then working as a radio operator at TWA’s base, and they were married soon thereafter. In late 1946 he was hired by Trans-Pacific Airlines, and he and Norma moved to Honolulu. During this period Ken had elected to remain active in the Navy Reserves. In 1948, TransPacific was forced to furlough a large number of their pilots, and Ken was included in this number. Shortly thereafter he heard that the Federal

Aviation Agency (FAA) was hiring experienced pilots, so he applied and was hired, and was assigned initially to Washington DC. In July 1951, with the start of the Korean War, he returned to active duty with the Navy and was assigned to Moffett Field, California. After the Korean War ended, Ken returned to his job with the FAA in Washington, DC. Over the next thirty years working as an FAA Flight Standards Inspector/Administrator, Ken and the family were transferred in successive moves to Chicago, Illinois; Saigon, South Vietnam; Manila, Philippine Islands; Kansas City, Kansas; Anchorage Alaska; and Atlanta, Georgia. While he was assigned to Saigon, advising the South Vietnamese Civilian Aviation Agency, the Navy recalled to him to active duty for service in a third national conflict. In 1981, while they were living in Atlanta, Norma lost a long battle with cancer and Ken retired from the FAA. During some cross-country travels Ken reconnected with an old friend, Margaret Burrington, in Tacoma, Washington, and they were married on March 11, 1982, and settled in Fircrest, just outside of Tacoma. Ken and Marge traveled extensively and enjoyed retirement in the Pacific Northwest. Ken was an avid reader throughout his life, and he became addicted to watching old movies on cable in his later years. Ken was a member of the Association of Naval Aviation and the FAA Flight Standards Retiree Group. Ken is survived by his wife Marge; by his three sons, Mike and his wife Annemieke, of Redwood City, California, Jim and his wife Sandy of Lawrence, Kansas, and Tom and his wife Rhonda of Carrolton, Georgia; his stepson, Greg Burrington and his wife Nancy of Graham, Washington; three grandchildren, Stewart and his wife Kim of Lawrence, Kansas, Veronica of San Diego, California, and Kaycee of Puyallup, Washington; and two greatgrandchildren, Marguerite and Patsy of Lawrence, Kansas.

young men and women they were accompanying. “During the night, the boys left the rooms they were checked in to, and when they returned, apparently, so as not to attract the attention of security guards, they came close to a barbed-wire fence belonging to an adjoining property, but a dog startled them when it began to bark,” the newspaper report said. Police said the guard shot into the air, which frightened the boys even more, sending them running toward the hotel. The guard, according to the report, was frightened, thinking he was being attacked, and mistook Johnston for a thief. He shot, fatally wounding Johnston. It was reported that the weapon, a .22 caliber pistol, was not registered. The security guard, who was identified as a 34-year-old man by the last name of Guevara, has been detained, Costa Rican police said, and the shooting is still under investigation. In addition, the school district continues to investigate the circumstances surrounding the incident. District officials are working with the United States Embassy in Costa Rica and the U.S. State Department to gather accurate information as it becomes available. The trip to Costa Rica was the first for the Spanish Club and its sponsors. The students on the trip are in Spanish 3 and Spanish 4 classes at the school. The trip was arranged through EF Educational Tours based in Cambridge, Mass. No other students were injured. The group arrived Monday for the nine-day trip, but returned safely Friday evening, the district announced in a release Saturday. Counselors were made available to the students and staff upon their return.


She recalled a time when someone purposely knocked a fellow student’s books out of her hands. Johnston was there to help pick up the books. “He wasn’t afraid to stand up for what he thought was right,” Vroman said. Mathew Horton, who was in the same class as Johnston, will be a junior in the fall at McLouth, said Johnston was one of his closest friends since seventh grade. “It’s just indescribable what happened to him,” Horton said. “I can’t believe he’s gone.” A prayer vigil took place Thursday at McLouth United Methodist Church, which is across the street from McLouth High School. More than 350 people attended the vigil, many writing messages on a large piece of thick paper that spanned a lengthy table near the church’s entrance. Jeri Holwick, who competed on the school’s power lifting team with Johnston and graduated in May, referred to her teammate as a “real cool guy” who always could make her laugh. Cameron Humerickhouse, another close friend, echoed that sentiment. “He knew how to put a smile on everyone’s faces, even if you were his best friend or a stranger,” said Humerickhouse, who will be an MHS senior in the fall. “He’d come up and talk to you and make a joke and make your day a lot better. I’m gonna miss him a lot.” According to a report from the Costa Rican newspaper The Nation, a guard at the hotel where the Spanish Club group was staying shot Johnston. The shooting took place at 4 a.m. The group was staying at the La Cangreja Lodge hotel in La Fortuna de San Carlos, according to the report, and student chaperones were staying in separate rooms from the


While the organization’s primary goal is to provide affordable housing, a secondary aim is to build the home as energy efficient as possible so the eventual home owners won’t be faced with mountainous utility bills. It’s a philosophy that means the home has standard cabinetry and won’t have granite counter tops, but it will have added features to make the home more energy efficient. “We are trying to get the biggest bang for the buck,” Lewis said. Here are some of the other steps that Lewis is taking to build an energy-efficient home: ● Insulation was put around the edge and underneath the slab foundation, which makes for warmer floors and keeps heat inside the home. ● An air-source heat pump, which draws temperatures from the outside to either warm or cool the house, is being used. The home also will use an air-source heat pump for the hot water

BUILDING GREEN On June 24, Tenants to Homeowners is partnering with Take Charge Challenge to host an open house of a green home under construction. The event will take place from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. at 2123 R.I.

In the attic, the insulation will be blown in through the roof’s rafters and go over the duct work to better seal the ducts. On top of that, cellulose insulation will be blown into the attic, which will bring the insulation rating factor up to R40.



Larned State Hospital for treatment, the wait can be longer than two months. “Essentially, we are on a waiting list,” Massey said. He said that sometimes “the last place they need to be is incarcerated in our facility.”

Schools For Kansas students, the bottom has fallen out of the promise of a three-year funding plan that resulted from a state Supreme Court ruling that the school finance system was unconstitutionally underfunded and inequitable. “Much of that has now been taken back, but the requirements and expectations continue to go up,” said Mark Tallman, a lobbyist with the Kansas Association of School Boards. School operating budgets will fall $100 million this year. Base state aid per pupil is at its lowest level in a decade. Local districts will have to increase local taxes if they are not already at the maximum amount allowed, raise fees on parents or make cuts in programs, Tallman said. The evidence of funding cuts is readily apparent in Lawrence, where the district is closing Wakarusa Valley School and is using its contingency funds. The district is looking at cuts of $3 million in the coming school year, compared with $4.6 million this year and $3 million in the previous year. Downstream impact Officials say that when the state backs out of its commitments, it leaves local governments with limited options searching for revenue sources — mostly raising property taxes. “If you end up in a wealthy community with a large tax base, you get a better education. That’s inherently unconstitutional and it goes against what I like to think it is in being a Kansan,” Weinaug said. He added, “When you shift the tax burden to property and sales taxes, away from income tax, it’s regressive. The property tax puts the burden on elderly people who have more of their wealth tied up in a house and their income is fixed.” The budget for the fiscal year starting July 1 was approved with only Republican votes. Gov. Sam Brownback, a Republican, signed it into law. Legislative leaders say the downstream impact is simply the reality of the times. Senate President Steve Morris, R-Hugoton, said he is concerned about pressures to increase property taxes and cuts in school funding. But he said he believed most Kansas were resigned to the fact that the economy has been hurting. “It is part of the landscape,” he said. House Speaker Mike O’Neal, R-Hutchinson, said, “Government at all levels — federal, state, local, school districts — are having to do with less money, and taxes aren’t always the answer to having less money. “Finding eff iciencies, reducing costs are things that they need to look at. Certainly we are challenging all levels of government to do more with less. We are not assuming that they will raise taxes. We are not forcing them to raise taxes.” — Statehouse reporter Scott Rothschild can be reached at 785-423-0668.

Moran stresses value of outreach


Gates urges patience with war U.S. Defense Secretary Robert Gates appealed for patience with an unpopular war and said Saturday that only modest U.S. troop reductions would make sense this summer in a still unstable Afghanistan. On his 12th and final visit to Afghanistan as Pentagon chief, Gates held out the possibility of a turning point in the war by year’s end. But Gates, who’s retiring June 30, said much depends on whether the death of al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden creates a new opening for peace negotiations with leaders of the Taliban insurgency. This and other aspects of the war, now in its 10th year, were on the agenda for Gates’ meetings Saturday with Gen. David Petraeus, the top U.S. and NATO commander here, and with U.S. Ambassador Karl Eikenberry. A decision on U.S. troop reductions is expected in the next couple of weeks. 2 | YEMEN

Injured leader flies to Saudi for care Embattled President Ali Abdullah Saleh flew to Saudi Arabia for medical care after he was wounded in a rocket attack on his palace, a senior government official said today. Saleh’s abrupt departure threatened to deepen the crisis in his impoverished nation shaken by months of protests against his 33-year rule. His departure followed intense pressure from his powerful Gulf neighbors and longtime ally Washington to step down. He had agreed to transfer power several times, only to step back at the last moment. Saleh might never return, given the opposition by large segments of the population and a powerful tribal alliance that took up arms after peaceful protests failed to persuade him to step down.

Eagleburger, the only career foreign service officer to rise to the position of secretary of state, died Saturday. He was 80. Eagleburger died in Charlottesville, Va., after a short illness, according to a family friend, Christy Reap. Tributes poured in immediately, from President Barack Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, to two of his one-time bosses, former President George H.W. Bush and former Secretary of State James A. Baker III. “As good as they come” was Baker’s description. A straightforward diplomat whose exuberant style masked a hard-driving commitment to solving tangled foreign policy problems, Eagleburger held the top post at the State Department for five months when Baker resigned in the summer of 1992 to help Bush in an unsuccessful bid for re-election.

Re-enactments at Battle of Black Jack site show history ‘beyond the book’ By Kyle Davis Special to the Journal-World

BALDWIN CITY — Shane Seley has been what he calls “wearing the funny clothes” for almost 35 years now. “Wearing the funny clothes” means taking part in Civil War reenactments and wearing the

authentic wool clothing of the era. Seley put the funny clothes on again Saturday at three re-enactments to celebrate the 155th anniversary of the Battle of Black Jack at the battlefield site. For Seley, it is important that all the equipment and clothing used in re-enactments be realistic. At a promotional event for the re-enact-

ment Tuesday at Free State Brewery in Lawrence, Seley was asked how much all his equipment and clothing cost, which is something he had never thought about before. “I just didn’t even notice, and I started kind of looking down at all the stuff that I had on, and I’m like, ‘Gosh, I think I have about $3,500 worth of gear’ because we’re pretty

take it beyond the book or beyond a documentary or beyond a movie or video game,” Seley said. The anniversary events began Thursday, the actual date of the battle, with a free, guided tour. The events continued with an 1856 Lamplight Camp Tour Friday and three re-enactments Saturday. All re-enactors were invited to participate and the re-enactments also included an introduction and summary by John Brown, portrayed by Kerry Altenbernd. Altenbernd portrayed an older John Brown, while a younger John Brown participated in the re-enactment battle. The re-enactment also took place at the actual battle site, something Altenbernd said is very rare. Altenbernd said he was honored for the re-enactors to attend and volunteer their time, and That’s our he said he thought goal. We the rewant, when enactors someone were also honored to comes here, be there. to get the “We give authentic them thank experience.” you gifts but, you — Kerry Altenbernd, know, to who portrayed John hire somebody to do Brown and led an what introduction and they’re summary in the doing re-enactment battle would be a whole lot more than meager little things that we offer them,” Altenbernd said. “We offer them the experience, and that’s priceless.” For Altenbernd and Seley, authenticity and accuracy were most important in the re-enactments. “That’s our goal. We want, when someone comes here, to get the authentic experience,” Altenbernd said. “When that battle goes off, we want it to look as close as it can to the actual battle.” This is the second year for the re-enactments, and Seley said he is still unsure if the reenactments will be an annual event. Seley said one of the things that make all the extra work worth the time is giving children the chance to learn about history in a new way. “I really like seeing all the kids come out and get excited and, you know, that’s just a big deal to me,” Seley said. “I’ve been into this stuff since I was, you know, in second, third grade, and this stuff wasn’t around for me.”

and to teach the elements of flying an airplane. The camp consists of four sessions: flight planning and aviation weather; plane anatomy and weight balance; careers in aviation; and aviation communication and traffic patterns. Brooks Barber traveled from Hays to attend the camp. Brooks, who said he wasn’t quite sure why he became interested in aviation a few years ago, already has some experience with flying. “I’ve flown a few planes a

few places,” he said. Brooks said he hopes to build on his experience during his first aviation camp. Ed Young, director of aviation at the Kansas Department of Transportation, said studying aviation could lead to many job opportunities in the future. “It’s a good area to consider when kids are this age,” Young said. KCAE is hosting a second camp in McPherson on June 25. The camp, aimed toward 12- to 15-year-olds, costs $25 per person.

Kansas braces for flood TOPEKA (AP) — Kansas emergency management officials are preparing for “a long and difficult� summer amid predictions of record flooding along the Missouri River. Releases from U.S. Army Corps of Engineer lakes further north on the Missouri River could send huge volumes of water into communities and farmlands in Kansas, including parts of Fort Leavenworth, said Maj. Gen. Lee Tafanelli, state adjutant general and director of the Kansas Division of EmerLAWRENCE gency Management. “It’s going to be a long and difficult summer,� Tafanelli said Friday, adding that predictions were for flooding to rival levels last seen in 1993. Tafanelli said residents in the northeast Kansas towns of Elwood and Wathena were preparing to evacuate residents who might be in the water’s way. The river is expected to crest between 27 and 33 feet, with the flood stage between 18 feet and 22 feet, depending on the location. The concern, he said, is that the water will not return to normal levels for several months, especially if predictions for a wet summer come true. More rain in Kansas or further upstream on the Missouri could compound the problems. State officials have met with Doniphan County officials, including city leaders in Elwood and Wathena, to begin plans for evacuating residents who could be forced out of their homes by the flood. Tafanelli said some residents were preparing to move to higher ground days ahead of the water. A levee that protects the area appears to be in good shape, he said, and will hold back the water from swallowing the towns. Further downstream, an Army airfield at Fort Leavenworth might not be so lucky. Sherman Army Airfield is shared by the military and the city of Leavenworth. Spokeswoman Rebecca Steed said Friday that the field would be flooded if the river rises to 27 feet.

Cook-off a meaty proposition for BBQ lovers By Shawn Linenberger

TEAM MEMBERS OF CRIMSON AND BLUE BBQ CREW, from left, Bill Walker, Tim Flory and Jeremy Douglass, prepare meat for judges at Saturday's McLouth BBQ Blowout. The Kansas City Barbecue Society event is a state event, with winners qualifying for the American Royal Invitational Championship and a slot into the entry pool for the Jack Daniels BBQ Championship.

MCLOUTH — A group of Jayhawk enthusiasts started their barbecue hobby at a Lawrence-area church cookoff a few years ago. “We found out we didn’t know how to cook,” said Tim Flory, one of three Lawrence area men who make up the barbecue team of Crimson and Blue BBQ Crew. Now Flory and teammates Bill Walker and Jeremy Douglass attend 18 barbecue contests each year. Saturday they were in McLouth’s Prairie Park for the 20th annual McLouth BBQ Blowout. It was their third year at the Kansas City Barbecue Society event where barbecue enthusiasts were offering their best cuts of chicken, ribs, brisket, pork and sausage. The group arrived at the event about 3 p.m. Friday afternoon and set up shop with their camper and various smokers. At 4 a.m., they started preparing their entries in their smokers. Early Saturday afternoon, the group was preparing a container of meat for judges.

Every life has a story.

Flory said good presentation was imperative — and putting a little extra meat on the plate for the local judges. It’s an expensive hobby, Flory said, as Douglass estimated it costs about $10,000 per year in expenses associated with all of the nearly 20 contests. The team does offset some of the costs with winnings at contests, Flory noted. The friends always head

each January to Lakeland, Fla., for a contest there, which is the first KCBS sanctioned event of the year. The reason? “Get the hell out of Kansas in January,” Flory said with a laugh. The team also sells their product at various events. The event Saturday had other offerings, including inflatable games for children,

vendors, a petting zoo, horse rides and firemen’s tug-o-war. The tug-o-war, sponsored by the McLouth Fire Department, had two people at opposite ends, each equipped with fire hoses attempting to push an old keg across a horizontal cable several feet in the air. — Tonganoxie Mirror news editor Shawn Linenberger can be reached at 913-845-2222.

Synthetic drug law takes effect HUTCHINSON — It is now illegal to sell or possess synthetic drugs in Kansas. The Hutchinson News reported Saturday that a law prohibiting the drugs known as “potpourri,” “incense” and “bath salts” took effect this week. The drugs have been said to give a methamphetamine-like high to users. They have contributed to hospitalizations and deaths in Kansas and across the country. The state Legislature voted overwhelmingly this year to outlaw the drugs after law enforcement and prosecutors advocated for it. In 2010, the Legislature banned another synthetic marijuana-like product, called K2. Compounds not covered by the K2 ban were outlawed this year.

Road work planned for this week Lawrence ● East 19th Street from Miller Drive to Harper Avenue will be closed Wednesday through Friday. City crews will be making repairs to a water line in the area. Lanes for both eastbound and westbound traffic will be closed and detour signs will be posted. ● City crews will continue to make repairs in the 2700 block of Bonanza Street during this week. No traffic will be allowed to drive through the area, and detours will not be posted. Alternate routes through the area will be available. ● City crews will begin making repairs to concrete curbs and street pavement throughout downtown. The project will extend from Sixth Street to North Park Street and from Vermont to New Hampshire streets. Traff ic will generally be maintained in both directions, but there will be parking limitations and singlelane effects. The work is expected to be completed by mid-August. ● Crews will begin working on a project to add a center turn lane on Sixth Street between Folks Road and Monterey Way. During the first phase of the project, the inside lanes of both the eastbound and westbound direction will be closed in front of Hy-Vee as crews remove the raised median. The second phase is scheduled to begin this week and plans to widen the eastbound lanes on Sixth Street. The project is expected to last three to five weeks. ● Kasold Drive between Clinton Parkway and 31st Street has both directions of traffic traveling along the southbound lanes of Kasold. Each direction is narrowed to one lane as crews rebuild the roadway. Access from side streets is right turn only.

The project is expected to last for several months. ● A portion of the Kansas River levee trail will be closed for the construction of the Bowersock Mills & Power Co.’s new plant on the north bank of the Kansas River. A detour on the trail will take users from the trail to city streets crossing at the controlled intersection of Second and Locust streets. Signs will be clearly posted marking the detour route to direct users throughout the detour. The city urges drivers and trail users to use caution when traveling through the intersection. The detour will run for the duration of the project, which is projected to last 20 months. ● The city is in the first phase of its overlay projects. Temporary single-lane closures should be expected in these areas, but traffic will most likely be able to flow through the area. For a map of the overlay projects go to _works/streetmaintenance and click on “2011 Street Maintenance Plan.” ● City maintenance crews are working on a microsurfacing program. Roads throughout the city will be repaved and resurfaced. Lane reductions and possible street closures may occur during the process. To find out what streets the city has targeted, visit the city’s website,

Douglas County ● Douglas County Road 9 is closed between U.S. Highway 24-40 and Interstate 70. The road will be closed so crews can work on bridge construction. It will remain closed until late spring. ● All lanes of Douglas County Road 458/N. 1000 Road will be closed to traffic between U.S. Highway 59 and E. 1400 Road, which is about one mile east of U.S. 59.

The road is being closed as part of the construction of the new interchange for U.S. 59 and so that crews can repair the bridge located about one-third mile east of U.S. 59. Local access for residents living in the area will remain available during the roadway closure. For other traffic, a marked detour will be provided along Douglas County Road 1055/E. 1500 Road and 31st Street. The work will last until mid- to late July.

U.S. Highway 24 ● Intermittent lane closures near U.S. Highway 24 and Airport Road are expected while crews work toward the installation of a sanitary sewer collection holding system. The project is scheduled to be completed by August. U.S. Highway 59 ● North 200 Road is closed at U.S. Highway 59 for frontage road construction work. The road will be tied to the new frontage road that runs parallel to the new U.S. Highway 59. Work is scheduled to be completed in late 2012. U.S. Highway 56 ● A bridge replacement project is under way just west of the U.S. Highway 75 junction in Osage County. About .44 mile west of the junction, both eastbound and westbound lanes of U.S. Highway 56 will be closed to all but local traffic. A marked detour will take drivers through Burlingame to Osage City and then back to U.S. Highway 7. The project is expected to be finished in mid-June. Interstate 70 ● Kansas Turnpike Authority is reconstructing a 3-mile stretch of highway just east of Lawrence. Traffic will be narrowed to one lane

in each direction from mile marker 208 to mile marker 211. Access to the Lawrence Service Area will remain open. Delays are expected during rush hour. The project will be f inished by November. ● A bridge replacement project is under way for the 142nd Street bridge spanning the Kansas Turnpike in Leavenworth and Wyandotte counties. The northbound and southbound lanes on 142nd Street will be closed between Kansas Avenue and Riverview Avenue. The stretch of road will remain closed for the duration of the project. As part of the project, daily lane closures could occur on the eastbound and westbound lanes of I-70 and the right shoulder of the road. The project should be complete in late fall. ● In Wyandotte County, both eastbound and westbound directions will be reduced to one lane from 118th Street to Interstate 435 for pavement repair work. Construction begins at 7 p.m. Monday and reopens to all traffic at 6 a.m. Tuesday. The project is expected to last until early June.

Interstate 435 ● The eastbound left lane will be closed from U.S. 69 to Antioch Road for crack sealing work on Monday and Tuesday between 9 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. Work is scheduled for completion by Tuesday. ● A bridge-painting project at the Johnson Drive interchange is under way. The work will require varying lane closures that will reduce northbound and southbound traffic along I435 down to one lane at a time. The lane reductions will occur from 7 p.m. to 6 a.m. Monday through Friday. The ramps will remain open. The project should be completed by mid-July.

Human toll of deadly tornado cuts deep By Alan Scher Zagier Associated Press Writer

JOPLIN , M O. — They were regular churchgoers, devoted parents, seniors in their retirement years and children with untold promise. Some gave their lives to save strangers, thrust by circumstance and human instinct into the role of hero. Others faced a parent’s worst fear, losing their lives while also failing to protect their children from death. Few outside the town of about 50,000 will recognize the names of the dead. But Joplin’s close-knit community lost a staggering array of human capital in the May 22 tornado, including seniors who were the town’s history and young people who were its future. Some lived their lives ordinarily, only to be defined in their final moments by breathtaking courage. “I don’t know how you put it in context,” said Ron Sampson, executive director of Joplin Workshop Inc., where three employees — lifelong friends with Down syndrome — died when their Iowa Street home was destroyed. “Between the physical destruction and the loss of life, it’s so overwhelming. Everybody is still in a fog.” Thirteen children died, including several students at Joplin High School, which was flattened. Two pairs of siblings were killed, and five children perished alongside a

Familiar faces at the cellphone store and 15th Street Walmart, three Elks Lodge members who attended weekly Bingo games, and three Harmony Heights Baptist Church worshippers didn’t survive the Sunday afternoon twister, the nation’s deadliest single tornado in six decades. Some were praised by name by Barack Obama in a presidential visit one week later, while others died anonymously. Still more continue on in the virtual world, their memories perpetuated in YouTube and Facebook tributes. Among them was 18-yearold Will Norton, whose story became widely known after it was learned the tornado, carrying 200 mph winds, pulled him out through his SUV’s sunroof as he drove home

from graduation. His funeral, scheduled for today, figures to dwell not on the way he died but on the unusual way he lived: traveling the world, unlike other Joplin teens. His family’s travel agency allowed Norton to take to the skies. He ultimately would visit 15 countries in Europe and Africa. He became a private pilot like his father and uncle. He was headed to Southern California with plans to study film production at Chapman University and dreams of making movies in Hollywood. He honed his chops on YouTube, gaining thousands of followers as “willdabeast8888,” a nod to both his first name and the African antelope he saw abroad. His father, who was in the passenger seat as the tornado bore down, remains hospitalized with broken ribs, a compressed spine, a rod in his left leg, a compound fracture of his arm and other serious injuries — but plans to attend his son’s funeral. The storm was especially deadly for the aged. More than a third of those who died were 65 or older, including at least 10 in the Greenbriar nursing home. Neighbors told of hearing screams when the funnel smashed the building and sent bodies airborne. Some victims have become known for their f inal moments.

Dodge City remembers ‘Gunsmoke’ star D O D G E C I T Y ( A P ) — Jody Singer got to do something most people never get to do. She became friends with her childhood hero, U.S. Marshal Matt Dillon, from the timeless television show “Gunsmoke.” But Singer lost one of her ties to the show this week with the death of the man who played Dillon. Actor James Arness died in his sleep Friday at his home in Brentwood, Calif. He was 88. “It just breaks your heart. I knew we’d lose him one of these days,” Singer said Friday in a phone interview from her home in Colorado. Singer met Arness in 2005, shortly before the 50thanniversary celebration of “Gunsmoke” in Dodge City. She kept in touch with the actor through letters, phone calls and personal visits to his home in California. “The first time I met him was when we did the medallion and got his handprints,” she said. Arness’ medallion and handprints rest at Second Avenue and Gunsmoke Street in Dodge City. Jim Johnson, from Dodge City’s Trail of Fame, was also in California when Arness dipped his hands in cement to memorialize his role as Dillon. “We were out there for two days visiting with them,” Johnson said Friday. “We had a wonderful time. They are the most down-to-earth, genuine people you ever met — just very gracious and extremely friendly, unlike so many Hollywood stars.” Singer also had fond memories of that visit. “It was just really fun to be there when he put his hands in the cement. He had such a good time doing that,” she said. “We spent a good portion of the day there. He’s just a joyful person to be with.” Johnson and Singer visited Arness was shortly before the 50th anniversary of “Gunsmoke.” But Arness couldn’t make it to Dodge for the celebration. “So they sent his wife, Janet, and his stepson, Jim Surtees. Both of them came to the 2005 celebration of the 50th anniversary, and both of them gave some really moving talks at the symposium that were pretty incredible,” Johnson said. James Arness is one of eight men who will be inducted into the inaugural class of the Kansas Hall of Fame. The induction will take place June 17 at the Great Overland Station Museum in Topeka. Dodge City resident Charlie Meade, special deputy U.S. Marshal and retired deputy marshal, will represent

Arness at the Hall of Fame gala banquet. Meade first met Arness in 1959, when Walnut Street was changed to Gunsmoke Street. “James Arness, Amanda Blake and Doc came out and hung our signs for us,” he said Friday. “I happened to — I was considerably different at that stage in my life than I am today. I was pretty timid, and I didn’t go up and get in the middle of it, but I did get to

see him and visit with him for a few minutes.” Throughout the years, Meade got to know Arness better and talk with him more through his work with Dodge City. Meade is often seen downtown with a pistol at his hip and a bandolier of bullets as a belt. He looks like a classic marshal and gives tours downtown, complete with stories about Arness.

at sea forced him into civilian life two years ago. A father of two with a pregnant fiancee, the Pizza Hut manager rushed the other employees and at least a dozen customers into the restaurant’s walk-in freezer as the half-mile-wide tornado approached. As the winds whipped through the store, Lucas grabbed a bungee cord to keep the freezer door shut. “He just started pulling with all his might,” said his father, Terry Lucas. Co-worker Daniel Fluharty grabbed Lucas by the waist. Waitress Kayleigh Savannah Teal, 16, held on to her manager’s leg. The winds flung open the freezer, throwing the three workers 20 to 30 feet. Fluharty survived; Lucas and Teal did not. “He went out facing the tornado headon,” Terry Lucas said. “He didn’t flinch.”

Brownback’s fast start puts Kansas’ moderate ways in rearview mirror --By John Hanna Associated Press Writer

TOPEKA — For decades in Kansas, a delicate political balance kept the state on a moderate path even as other states in the region turned to the right. Conservatives could cut taxes in flush times. But Democrats and centrist Republicans still freed up money for highways and schools, and a loose coalition worked out compromises. Those days, it seems, have passed. And the change has come more swiftly than in other places that were part of last fall’s conservative electoral wave that put new Republican governors or stronger Republican legislatures in charge in half of the nation’s statehouses. In a mere five months, new Republican Gov. Sam Brownback and likeminded lawmakers have recast the social and f iscal landscape of Kansas and made the state a laboBrownback ratory for conservative ideas. Kansas will soon become one of the most difficult places in the country for a woman to obtain an abortion. Its public schools will have much leaner budgets. Its government workers will have smaller pensions or pay more to keep what they have. Several state agencies have been closed or merged. The state will look for ways to spend less on health care for the poor in the Medicaid program. And Kansas will be first state to eliminate funding for the arts. The legislative session that ended this month will have shoved Kansas away from the socially moderate climate of the Midwest, with Iowa and Illinois, and toward the sharply conservative Southwest of Texas and Oklahoma. “The ground was very fertile. There hadn’t been a con-

We got our new leadership and our new administration, and it’s just totally different. Public education is not a priority.” — David Reber, a biology and anatomy teacher at Free State High School servative governor in maybe 50 years,” Brownback said in an interview with The Associated Press. “It’s a centerright state. On top of it, you’ve got a revulsion to what’s taking place in Washington.” Brownback, a conservative Catholic and strong abortion opponent who served 14 years in the Senate, took office in January and moved briskly through a wish list of conservative priorities while new Republican leaders in other states were caught up in legislative fights with similar measures. Voters’ anger over the recession and government spending set the stage. Democrats and other moderates found themselves overwhelmed. In Kansas, the number of GOP lawmakers grew by 10 percent, making the Legislature threequarters Republican. Many of the new members were strong conservatives. “I expected that the Republicans would be more focused on economic issues,” said House Minority Leader Paul Davis, a Lawrence Democrat who was somewhat shellshocked by the breadth of the agenda Brownback rammed through. “I thought that after the election in November, they would see that the mandate from the voters was to try to get this economy moving and try to create jobs.”

Conservative to-do list Brownback has gotten almost everything he wanted with little diff iculty; his biggest political problem may be meeting the more expansive expectations of some conservatives.

“I want more!” laughed House Speaker Mike O’Neal, a conservative Republican, as he reviewed the session’s work. In a series of lopsided votes, the Legislature cut overall spending and general aid to public schools about 6 percent, imposed new restrictions on late-term abortions and regulations for clinics and doctors, changed the pension system for state workers, and passed a voter ID law, which is on conservatives’ to-do list nationwide. The measure includes a proof-of-citizenship requirement for people registering to vote for the first time. Legislators also rewrote income tax laws to help corporations that buy equipment and temporarily suspended income taxes for outof-state people who moved to Kansas counties with declining populations. “We’ve got some pretty meaty subjects out there that are not only being looked at, but we’re passing them,” O’Neal said. The targets of the new action have felt the ground shift beneath them. “We got our new leadership and our new administration, and it’s just totally different,” said David Reber, a biology and anatomy teacher at Lawrence Free State High School, which is in a district that will lose $3.1 million in general aid. “Public education is not a priority.” Next comes phase two. Brownback expects to have a plan to overhaul the state’s tax system — and cut income taxes — by the end of the year. Republicans also may change the state pension system for new hires to a 401(k)style plan. Brownback and his allies believe in stimulating Kansas’ growth by lowering taxes rather than through investments in government services. They see action on the social issues as being in line with most residents’ values.

Hormone-blocking drug reduces breast cancer risk CHICAGO — Millions of women at higher-than-usual risk of breast cancer have a new option for preventing the disease. Pfizer Inc.’s Aromasin cut the risk of developing breast cancer by more than half, without the side effects that have curbed enthusiasm for other prevention drugs, a major study found. It was the first test in healthy women of newer hormone-blocking pills called aromatase inhibitors, sold as Arimidex, Femara and Aromasin, and in generic form. They’re used now to prevent recurrences in breast cancer patients who are past

menopause, and doctors have long suspected they may help prevent initial cases, too. HEALTH Prevention drugs aren’t advised for women at average risk of breast cancer. Those at higher risk because of gene mutations or other reasons already have two choices for prevention — tamoxifen and raloxifene. But these drugs are unpopular because they carry small risks of uterine cancer, blood clots and other problems.

“Here’s a third breast cancer prevention drug that may in fact be safer,” said Dr. Allen Lichter, chief executive of the American Society of Clinical Oncology. The study was discussed Saturday at the society’s annual meeting in Chicago, along with another one that could change care for thousands of women each year with breast cancer that has spread to lymph nodes. It found that giving radiation to the armpit — not just the breast — after surgery significantly lowered the chances the cancer would come back.

End in sight? A state transportation plan that includes funding for the South Lawrence Trafficway provides a glimmer of hope that the project finally will be finished.


e can only hope that the state funding commitment announced on Friday will lead, at long last, to the completion of the beleaguered South Lawrence Trafficway. Even the press release announcing that the state would spend $192 million to complete the bypass referred to the “long-discussed” SLT. Back in 1985, Douglas County commissioners proposed a $3.5 million bond issue for a trafficway to connect Kansas Highway 10 east of Lawrence to the Kansas Turnpike to the northwest. It was the first step in a faltering project that has become a grim joke in Lawrence and much of the state. Completing the SLT is part of the $1.8 billion T-WORKS program passed by the Kansas Legislature in 2010. The state’s commitment to the project is, in no small part, related to the important link it would provide in the state’s busiest traffic corridor, which runs between Topeka and Johnson County. The looming completion of the four-lane U.S. 59 south of Lawrence adds to the urgency of completing a bypass that will carry traffic east to K-10. Congratulations and thanks are due to Gov. Sam Brownback, Transportation Secretary Deb Miller and U.S. Sen. Pat Roberts, as well as officials in Manhattan, Shawnee County and Overland Park, for joining local officials in supporting this important transportation link to the state’s growing high-tech corridor. The SLT is not the most expensive project in the T-WORKS plan, but, according to the Kansas Department of Transportation, it carries the greatest economic impact, an estimated $3.7 billion. The SLT also is one of a couple of T-WORKS projects for which KDOT plans to explore charging tolls to offset construction and maintenance costs. KDOT estimates that tolls could raise as much as $50 million to construct the project. The department plans to work with the Kansas Turnpike Authority, Lawrence and Douglas County to come up with a scheme that charges tolls only for people who travel the full length of the SLT but allows free access for local motorists. They envision a toll of no more than a dollar, which probably is a bargain for people linking from the turnpike to K-10, but maintaining free access for local drivers using just a portion of the SLT is essential. It’s hard for Lawrence residents to believe the trafficway could finally be headed toward completion. KDOT estimates that a final design for the trafficway will be completed in the next two years with construction beginning in late 2013 or in 2014. That, of course, assumes that it isn’t stymied by continuing legal battles, including a pending appeal in the 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals challenging the approved route through the Baker Wetlands. Books could be written about the proposals, protests, rulings and roadblocks that have marked this project for more than three decades. The priority the state now is placing on completing the South Lawrence Trafficway is a recognition that it’s time to move forward on this important missing link in the state’s highway system. We — and, we suspect, most Lawrence residents — couldn’t agree more.

NFL negotiations spin out of control NEW YORK — Although his Park Avenue office is as quiet as an empty stadium, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell sits atop a seething volcano of fans who will erupt if training camps do not open in July. Fans care nothing about the details of the labor dispute that threatens to keep stadiums empty into September and perhaps beyond: There were meetings between the two sides last week, but apparently there have been no formal negotiations since March 11; the court hearing this past Friday might — weeks from now — result in a decision that will restart negotiations. Even if, however, you think football is one of America’s dispensable frills, the NFL’s agony is a fascinating illustration of how things can spin out of control. Explaining why the NFL — a hugely popular $9.3 billion enterprise — needs fixing, Goodell sounds paradoxical: Costs are growing faster than revenues, stadiums are the biggest costs, and they must be made better because most fans never enter them. Most NFL fans have never been to a game; more than 90 percent never or rarely go. They watch at home on wide-screen televisions, with super-slowmotion replays and close-ups of linebackers’ collisions and cheerleaders’ cleavages. The television experience will be diminished, Goodell says, if the stadiums are

not full. And the parlous condition of state and municipal budgets means that taxpayers are resisting building them. Under the previous agreement, owners took $1.3 billion of league revenues off the top before players got about 65 percent of the remainder. This time, owners began by demanding that another $1 billion of revenues — subsequently reduced to less than $400 million — be set aside for stadiums and other investments, before the players get their portion. But players, whose careers average about six years, according to the league, resist sacrificing earnings so the league can make long-term investments that might benefit players now in high school. Furthermore, because fans — especially season ticket holders — resent having to

buy tickets for two home preseason games, the owners want to reduce those games from four to two, and lengthen the regular season from 16 to 18. Players say this means more work and risk of injury for less pay. Owners say players would get a smaller slice but of a bigger pie. These are splittable differences. But the players union responded to the owners’ lockout of its members by dissolving itself (“decertification”). This created a situation in which, without a collectively bargained agreement, all players would be free agents — independent contractors. So the players, whose pay and benefits increased 85 percent over the last 10 years, and who began by playing defense against the league’s demands, now might threaten to unravel the draft, team salary caps and other arrangements by which a sports league contrives to produce competitive balance. Because 43 percent of NFL revenue comes from national television contracts and is shared equally among the 32 teams, and almost 80 percent of all NFL revenues are shared in some way, teams in smaller markets can prosper: The teams in the last two Super Bowls were from Pittsburgh, Green Bay, New Orleans and Indianapolis. The combination of revenue-sharing and the salary cap means it takes

a perverse genius for a team to lose money. The owners, by decrying the current system, desperately want the union resurrected so they can bargain with it to preserve most of the system. Currently, the owners propose a salary cap of $141 million per team, meaning $4.51 billion in league-wide compensation. The players want $151 million, meaning $4.83 billion. It is ludicrous to risk even part of a season over so little, and both sides probably would, if they could, erase the last three months of staking out improvident positions and agree to extend the current system. Any labor dispute is a test of the two sides’ pain thresholds. The owners think the players’ serious pain will begin when they miss the first of their 17 paychecks. The owners may, however, be forgetting a pertinent fact: NFL players — pain is part of their job description — are NFL players because they are intensely competitive and hate to lose at anything. After decades in which economic sectors much larger and more essential than the NFL — e.g., the steel and automotive industries — were laid low by mismanaged labor relations, and as the role and rights of organized labor are being hotly debated, the NFL’s current crackup suggests that both sides are slow learners. — George Will is a columnist for Washington Post Writers Group.



It was announced that the upcoming Independence Days celebration in BurYEARS cham Park would AGO feature Leo Kottke, IN 1986 referred to as “a legendary if relatively youthful master of the six- and 12string guitar from Minnesota,” and Asleep at the Wheel. Other performers scheduled for festival performances were Stoney Lonesome, the Lake Wobegon Mandolin Orchestra, The Eclectic Brothers, James Dapogny and his Chicago Jazz Trio and Banu Gibson. The Lawrence Symphony Orchestra was to play patriotic songs and Sousa and Foster melodies. Other entertainment would be provided by such local musicians as Bluestem, Chuck Berg and Friends, and Full Circle.


Killjoy revels in life’s miseries “Our days are a web of petty miseries and is there a greater blessing than to be the ashes of which oblivion is made?” Why are those words so uplifting? Why do they put a spring in my step and make my spirit soar? I carry about a collection of similar inspirational sayings as antidotes to optimism, to keep me from the temptations of cheerfulness. I prize the words of Thomas Hobbes to the effect that the life of man is “solitary, poor, nasty, brutish and short” and the fanfare of Lucretius: “O miserable minds of men! O blind hearts! In what darkness of life … ye spend this little span of years.” The Bible is an exhaustible source of these stirring epigrams: “We are all unclean and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags.” “My days are swifter than a weaver’s shuttle, and are spent without hope.” “Man that is born of a woman is of few days, and full of trouble. He cometh forth like a flower and is cut down.” For a touch of humor, there’s George Price’s delightful cartoon that shows one unshaven derelict informing another: “I heard a bit of good news today: We pass this way but once.” I don’t know what is so magical about those sentiments, but they make me feel like whistling a lugubrious dirge, like dancing a funeral jig. Strangely enough, it’s the upbeat, cheerful exhortations that really get me down. The song “Cockeyed Optimist” gets me down. Norman Vincent Peale gets me down. And Pollyanna. Pollyanna’s philosophy of life is based on

George Gurley philosophy is: Trust “noMy one, expect the worst, and look for the coming storm in every silver lining. A bit of good luck fills me with dark forebodings.”

the “Glad Game,” which involves finding something to be glad about even in the worst situations. A pox on Pollyanna. Pollyanna gets me down. Greeting cards designed to cheer up people who’ve suffered disasters make me want to scream: “Have some soup, get lots of rest and soon you’ll feel your very best.” “Keep your spirits high and a brighter day will dawn tomorrow.” “Don’t give up and you’ll get where you want to go.” Does anyone really believe such bromides? What a cruel joke to tell someone in a full body cast who’s just been sentenced to life in prison that “A little luck will see you through” or “Smile when it hurts the most.” What’s needed is a genre of greeting cards with messages such as, “Don’t spin your wheels trying to get out of the quick sand,” or

“Abandon hope, all ye who enter here.” My philosophy is: Trust no one, expect the worst, and look for the coming storm in every silver lining. A bit of good luck fills me with dark forebodings. I believe in the law that, “If anything can go wrong, it will go wrong.” I am a bottom feeder, a connoisseur of downers. My refuge is in the abyss. Nothing depresses me more than a sunny day without a cloud in the sky. It’s like a rebuke: “Get up! Get out of bed! Get something done!” Give me a cold November morn with merciless rain beating down, when the roads are impassible, the power is out and all activity on the human anthill comes to a stop. If life is “a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing,” then aren’t we absolved from stepping up to the plate day after day? What difference does it make if we succeed or fail? At meetings of the Killjoy Society, I and my fellow brooders sit alone, grimacing, contemplating skulls and mumbling: “The world’s going to the dogs … The sky is falling … When will it ever end?” We want to know why people sing? Don’t they know how to grumble? The band strikes up and they rush to the dance floor. They twirl around, bounce up and down, swing their partners, laughing, shouting, whooping it up like maniacs — and all in the name of “fun,” whatever that’s supposed to be. — George Gurley, a resident of rural Baldwin City, writes a regular column for the Journal-World.

A two-ton ammonia truck of the Farmers Co-Op Association, YEARS Lawrence, overAGO turned north of IN 1971 Lawrence near Midland. The uninjured driver, who declined to identify himself, had lost control of the truck while turning off the highway onto a dirt road. Two units from the Lawrence Fire Department were dispatched to the scene to stand by until the truck was set back on its wheels.


From the Lawrence Daily Journal-World for June 5, 1911: YEARS “At 11:30 this AGO morning a milk IN 1911 wagon collided with a street car on Indiana street and the milk wagon got the worst of it. The wagon was the property of J. T. Hedges and the boy driving it said that the lines got crossed causing him to pull the wrong one.” “This is the month of the year when hubby gobbles his supper, crams a handful of cigars in his pocket and rushes off into the night to be gone until the early hours of morning. Experienced wives who recognize the symptoms know that the season for electing lodge officers has arrived, and go to bed without waiting for the erstwhile one’s return.” — Compiled by Sarah St. John

Protesters want release of WikiLeaks suspect LEAVENWORTH — About 250 people rallied at Fort Leavenworth to support an Army private accused of leaking classified military information to the WikiLeaks website. The Army says Pfc. Bradley Manning leaked hundreds of thousands of classified documents while serving as an intelligence specialist in Iraq. He’s being held at Fort Leavenworth. Those at Saturday’s rally say Manning should be released. The Kansas City Star reports that Manning’s supporters say they have raised $150,000 for his defense and are planning rallies and an Internet campaign on his behalf. Jeff Paterson, project director for a group that helps military personnel, says if Manning is guilty, he revealed information that should be public. Critics say the WikiLeaks release broke U.S. law and could endanger lives.

Black Christmas Tonight, be sure to pack earplugs before you head to the Eighth Street Tap Room, 19 E. Eighth St., because, between The Melting Point of Bronze and Black Christmas, hearing loss is a distinct possibility. Black Christmas creates dark, moody soundscapes that avoid the repetition inherent in a lot of instrumental music by frequently changing or expanding their sound. Their songs tend to be more passive and metered, making them better suited for a patient listener. The Melting Point of Bronze, on the other hand, is about as subtle as sledgehammer. Like Black Christmas, many of their songs are instrumentals, or feature vocals so muffled they may as well be, but the band is significantly more aggressive and definitely fits the popular definition of metal music. Guitars crunch, the bass riffs are thick and the percussion is cymbal-heavy, to say the least. The show starts at 10 p.m. and is for metalheads 21 and older. Admission is $3.

TUNDE BAKARE MAKES A MOVE TOWARD A BALL CARRIER in this 2010 file photo from when he played at Highland Community College. Bakare is hoping to make an impact with the Kansas University linebacking corps this fall as a junior.

LB Bakare looking to make big impact ——

Juco transfer’s goal to crack KU football starting lineup in fall By Matt Tait

Two years ago, linebacker Tunde Bakare left Woodbridge, Va., for Highland (Kan.) Community College and had every intention to go back. Now, after signing on Feb. 2 and pledging to spend the final two seasons of his college career at Kansas University, Bakare has gotten used to the idea of calling the Sunflower State home. “I never really even thought of KU,” said the 5-foot-11, 215-pound outside linebacker who nearly signed with Maryland out of high school. “I felt like Kansas was the last place I would go to. But I prayed a lot about it and I thought it was crazy that they gave me the offer. I’m just emotionally amped up to go there and get this show on the road. I’m excited.” Being excited — or exciting — has never been much of a problem for Bakare. Throughout high school, he was known for having a motor that wouldn’t stop. During his two-year stay at Highland, he was the same wild player who flew to the ball, blew up ball carriers and made big hits. But a funny thing happened while Bakare was off the field during the last two seasons. He learned how to become an even better player by letting his mind factor into the way he played. All of a sudden, relentless sprints to the quarterback were aided by proper technique or good angles. Head-on collisions with running backs were backed by sound form and a nose for the football. His numbers went up. His IQ did, too. “I think I’ve gotten a lot better,” Bakare said. “Obviously, I’ve gotten better physically, but I really think I’ve gotten a lot better mentally. I don’t think I really understood the game coming out of high school. I knew I could run fast, I knew I could hit people, but I didn’t really understand the game. Coach (Mike Beagle) really helped me understand it more. There’s really nothing to do in a small town, so I just devoted myself to football.” As the days went by, studying film became as exciting as squaring up on a ball carrier. And Bakare found himself thinking more, but still playing with the same tenacity. “Learning more and more about quarterbacks, what their tendencies are, how they drop back,” said Bakare of what areas he focused on most. “Just the little things of the game. I feel like I have the physical attributes. I think if I get that stuff down to a tee, I could be really something, a force to be reckoned with.” That’s his goal for his two seasons at Kansas. Because of the current state of the KU roster, he has a chance to fulfill them. Bakare — one of six linebackers signed by KU coach Turner Gill

Freshman Tharpe looks sharp on first day in town By Gary Bedore

KANSAS CITY, MO. — Bill Self wore a green silk shirt, gold chain and white slacks to his third Bill’s Basketball Boogie held Saturday night at the College Basketball Experience next to Sprint Center. Cindy Self, co-chair of the charity event — and wife of Kansas University’s ninth-year hoops coach — modeled a rainbow-colored dress with white go-go boots, also befitting the disco-oriented theme of the evening. Actually, a quick glimpse of the 700 or so guests at the dinner/dance revealed just one person in a 2011-style dress shirt with a silver necktie to go with black pants. That’d be incoming freshman point guard Naadir Tharpe, who several months earlier also stood out by arriving in business attire

Tharpe, a 6-foot, 170-pounder from Worcester, Mass., who arrived for summer school at 3 p.m. Saturday, after flying from Boston’s Logan International Airport to KCI. “I went to prep school.

He averaged 14.5 points and 6.0 assists a game in leading Brewster Academy of Wolfeboro, N.H., to a 31-3 record and a spot in the national prep school semifinals. Tharpe, who phoned his mother, Lori, shortly after landing — “She said, ‘I’m proud of you.

Bowyer triumphs in home state ————

Emporia native celebrates Trucks Series victory at Kansas Speedway KANSAS CITY, KAN. (AP) — Clint Bowyer didn’t even try to hide his excitement at finally winning a NASCAR race in his home state, especially after the disappointment of coming so close twice before. “We’ve had some good runs here, but we haven’t been able to seal the deal,” Bowyer said after dominating the Trucks Series race Saturday at Kansas Speedway. “So to finally be able to do a burnout in the homestretch in front of this crowd, this is big.

This track means a lot to me. I watched this place being built and dreamed of being able to race here in anything, so to be able to roll into victory lane is pretty cool.” Bowyer, who grew up 90 miles away in Emporia, finished second at Kansas once in Sprint Cup competition and once in the Nationwide series. But on Saturday in the 400th race in Trucks Series history, he dominated throughout to snap Kyle Busch’s winning streak at three races.

Bowyer started second and quickly took control, leading 142 laps in the 167-lap, 250-mile race on the 1.5-mile tri-oval. A late caution forced a restart with 30 laps to go, but Bowyer easily pulled ahead of Johnny Sauter and cruised unchallenged to his third career Trucks victory and Orlin Wagner/AP Photo first this season. “I thought we had the truck to DRIVER CLINT BOWYER, MIDDLE, CELEBRATES beat going into the race today,” in victory lane after winning the NASCAR Sauter said. “We led for a little Camping World Truck Series race.

Mavs aiming to pick up where they left off MIAMI AT DALLAS

What: Game 3 When: 7 tonight Where: Dallas Series: Tied, 1-1 TV: ABC (Knology chs. 9, 12, 209) 1 Please see BAKARE, page 5B Line: Dallas by 2 ⁄2

By Jaime Aron Associated Press Sports Writer

DALLAS — The Dallas Mavericks’ passes were on target, their shots fell and their defense against the Miami Heat was stifling. Dallas played its best stretch of the NBA Finals at the end of Game 2, pulling off a rally that reshaped the series Thursday.

Now they have to try to keep it going. The Mavs go into Game 3 tonight feeling good because of the way the last game ended and because they will be back home. They also know that to win their first NBA title, they’re going to have to play more like they did down the stretch of the last game, and less like they did in the 71⁄2 quarters that preceded it.

“We just can’t let up,” Dallas star Dirk Nowitzki said Saturday. “We’re not good enough to just relax. We need to play with an edge especially in every game.” Although the series is tied 1-1, the Heat have been the better team for longer stretches. Take it quarter by quarter. Dallas has won only two of the eight: 17-16 in an ugly first period of the

first game, and 24-18 in their glorious finish to Game 2. Check out the biggest leads for each team. Miami was up by 12 in the opener and 15 before its collapse in Game 2. The Mavericks’ widest advantage in either game was nine. Then there are the bad habits Dallas has gotten into in each Please see NBA, page 5B

on the board. He (Hochevar) was frustrated after the game.” Hochevar (3-6) allowed 11 hits in six-plus innings. The No. 1 overall pick in the 2006 draft is 1-5 with a 5.71 ERA in his last nine starts. “We’re not catching very many breaks,” Hochevar said. “I don’t know what to say about it. They were just getting hits in perfect spots.” Alexi Casilla matched a career high with four hits and drove in two runs for Minnesota. He had RBI singles in the third and seventh innings to help the Twins to their third straight win, equaling a season high. Casilla’s other four-hit game was Sept. 3, 2007, against the Cleveland Indians.

Royals eyeing prep phenom Bubba Starling By Doug Tucker Associated Press Sports Writer

KANSAS CITY, MO. — Once a year the St. Louis Cardinals come to Kansas City and remind the Royals how dumb they were in 1999. That’s the year Bill Althaus of the Independence, Mo., Examiner, practically pleaded with the front office to take a look at this muscular kid he’d seen belting tape measure home runs for Ft. Osage High, a short drive from Kauffman Stadium. They did. But they decided the big youngster lacked a true position and was probably going to have trouble keeping his weight down. So they sat by while St. Louis drafted Albert Pujols and molded him into a three-time National League MVP, one of the most feared power hitters of his time. Compounding the Royals’ embarrassment, the greatness that got away is put on full display year after year when the Cardinals play interleague games in K.C. With friends and family cramming the park, Pujols has reached base in every game he’s ever played in the home park of the home town team that snubbed him. Now, 11 years later, can the Royals afford to let it happen again? It’s a different administration, a different general manager. But can they take a chance on letting another potential superstar from their own neighborhood slip through their fingers? It’s a decision they’ll face on Monday night if local high school legend Bubba Starling is still available when the Royals pick overall No. 5. Unlike Pujols, whose vast potential was suspected only by a few, Starling is practically a household name among sports fans in Kansas City and wherever major league scouts and general managers discuss great 5-tool prospects. A multisport star for suburban GardnerEdgerton High School just southwest of Kansas City, Starling was the Kansas high school athlete of the year. According to his growing legend, the modest, well behaved Bubba hits 500-foot home runs, throws a football 55 yards from his knees and dunks over basketball players who stand half a foot taller. Carrying 200 pounds on a chiseled 6foot-5 frame, he’s the best high school athlete in the draft, according to Baseball America. And he certainly is no secret to the Royals. They’ve been courting him since he was 14, bringing him to games, letting him hit in their indoor facility. But, there’s a catch. A big catch. Besides being a standout outfielder, he was a great high school quarterback who rushed for 2,471 yards and 31 touchdowns his senior season. Recruited by just about every major program in America, he picked Nebraska. As the baseball draft approaches, the Huskers are reminding him almost daily of their promise to also let him play baseball. The Royals aren’t saying what they’ll do if Bubba’s on the board. If they pass on him, fans are sure to be upset. “What I would say is that it’s obviously an important question for our organization and for the Kansas City community,” said general manager Dayton Moore. “But it’s very inappropriate for me to comment at this time about any individual player. It’s not fair to the player, it’s not fair to our organization, and it’s not fair to the other 29 organizations.”



Hochevar struggles in K.C. loss KANSAS CITY , M O . (AP ) — Royals manager Ned Yost is keeping a positive attitude when it comes to struggling right-hander Luke Hochevar. Hochevar dropped his third consecutive decision Saturday night when the Minnesota Twins got to him for six runs in a 7-2 victory over Kansas City. “You look at Hochevar’s line and he pitched a lot better than his line would indicate,” Yost said. “Over the course of the game, they hit the ball well four times. They just placed the ball well with bunts, soft hits, swinging bunts, broken-bat grounders. “That’s no fun when they’re finding holes. They frustrate you, but at the same time they’re putting runs

“Casilla killed us,” said Jeff Francoeur, who hit a sacrifice fly in the Royals’ two-run third for his 500th RBI. “He was a pain in the rear.” Nick Blackburn (5-4) allowed two runs and seven hits, but departed after five innings and 80 pitches with tightness in his back. Blackburn is 40 in his past seven starts after finishing April with four straight losses. Five relievers held the Royals to a single over the final four innings. The Twins pushed across two runs in the sixth and three in the seventh. Delmon Young and Danny Valencia each drove in a run in the sixth, and Ben Revere, Michael Cuddyer and Casilla had RBI singles in the seventh.

Li wins French Open women’s title PARIS — Li Na ended China’s long wait for a Grand Slam champion Saturday, beating Francesca Schiavone, 6-4, 7-6 (0), in the French Open final. The Australian Open runner-up celebrated by falling flat on her back in the red clay after Schiavone hit a backhand long on match point. “I was nervous, but I didn’t want to show to my opponent,” said Li, who appeared to be letting the match slip away in the second set. “I was a little bit shaking.” The crowd at Roland Garros was dotted with red Chinese flags and a small vocal group supporting Schiavone. They watched as Li dropped her serve for the only time late in the second set, but then won the final nine points of the match to earn her first major title. “I couldn’t really push forward from the baseline,” Schiavone said. “She deserved to win. One has to lose, one has to win. She deserves everything.”

GOLF Stricker holds onto lead DUBLIN, OHIO — Steve Stricker holed out from the fairway for one of his two eagles Saturday, wound up with a 3-under 69 on a steamy afternoon at Muirfield Village and finished with a three-shot lead in the Memorial. He still had to convince himself it was a good day. Right when it looked as though Stricker might leave everyone in his wake, he missed a 4-foot birdie putt on the 14th hole that threw his round into reverse. He made bogey on the par-5 15th. He missed a 4-foot par putt on the 16th, and had a 7-foot birdie on the next hole catch the lip. And when he arrived to his ball in the middle of the 18th fairway, it was right in the middle of a sand-filled divot. Stricker managed to save par on the last hole. The score that matters is 12-under 204, which was three shots clear of Jonathan Byrd. Gary Woodland shot a 69 to put him six shots back, in a tie for eighth.

Kerr takes one-shot lead GALLOWAY TOWNSHIP, N.J. — Cristie Kerr birdied the final hole for a 6-under 65 and a one-shot lead over Catriona Matthew after the second round of the ShopRite LPGA Classic. The 33-year-old Kerr rolled in three of her eight birdies after making a double bogey on the 12th hole on the Bay Course at Seaview. Kerr capped the round with an 8-footer at the par-5 18th to put herself in position to win for the first time this year and for the 15th time in her LPGA career.

Spain shuts out U.S. FOXBOROUGH, MASS. — Santi Cazorla scored twice to give World Cup champion Spain a 40 victory over the United States on Saturday as the Americans tuned up for the Gold Cup.

MLB Posey does not condone threats SAN FRANCISCO — Buster Posey doesn’t support any of the threats made toward Scott Cousins, the Florida Marlins player who ended the San Francisco Giants catcher’s season in a collision at home plate May 25. “I appreciate the continued support of Giants fans and others as I begin the process of working my way back,” Posey said in a statement Saturday. “But in no way do I condone threats of any kind against Scott Cousins or his family. “As I said last week, I’m not out to vilify Scott. I appreciate that he made the effort to reach out to me on the night of the play, but I was in no physical condition to talk to anyone,” the statement said. “I have not been back with the team since that night so I haven’t even been aware of any other messages he’s left for me. We all need to move on, so it isn’t necessary to have a conversation with him at this point.”

NHL Canucks take 2-0 lead VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA — Alex Burrows circled the net and scored a stunning goal 11 seconds into overtime, and the Vancouver Canucks took a 2-0 lead in the Stanley Cup finals with a 3-2 victory over the Boston Bruins on Saturday night.

AUTO RACING Allgaier wins Nationwide race JOLIET, ILL. — Justin Allgaier caught and passed Carl Edwards on the final lap as both cars ran out of fuel Saturday night and won the Nationwide STP 300 at his home track, the Chicagoland Speedway. Edwards had led most of the night, fought off an earlier challenge from Elliott Sadler and was apparently on his way to a fourth series victory of the year. But Allgaier sped past coming into the third turn and Edwards couldn’t respond because he was out of fuel. And then seconds later so was Allgaier, who somehow coasted to the finish line for the win with Daytona 500 winner Trevor Bayne closing fast.

COLLEGE FOOTBALL Tressel: OSU will beat Michigan UPPER ARLINGTON, OHIO — Former Ohio State football coach Jim Tressel told people at a rally on his front doorstep that he would always be a Buckeye and that the team will beat Michigan again this November. After a crowd of some 200 people had sung a song disparaging the archrival Wolverines early Saturday evening, Tressel said, “Don’t forget: Nov. 26th we’re going to kick their ass!” That brought the loudest cheer of the day from the group, which had walked a half mile in 90-degree heat from a rallying point at a nearby park to Tressel’s expansive French Provincial home in this Columbus suburb near campus.

Kurt Busch wins pole K A N S A S C I T Y , K AN . ( AP ) — Kurt Busch had never run all that well in Kansas, and a spinout during practice Friday certainly didn’t make it look as if he was about to turn that around. Less than 24 hours and a few tweaks later, Busch captured the pole for NASCAR’s Sprint Cup race at Kansas Speedway and reversed a decade of tough luck at the 1.5mile track. Busch, who had never started higher than seventh in 10 career starts in Kansas and has never finished in the top five, topped the leaderboard at 174.752 mph in his No. 22 Dodge on Saturday. Busch snapped out of an extended funk with a fourthplace finish last week in Charlotte. He had to have front end damage repaired following Friday’s spin, and that and other changes helped produce his f irst pole since Michigan last June and the 13th of his career. “I have to thank my guys for standing behind me, not just through (Friday) but through some of the tough times we’ve been through as of late,” Busch said. “It’s an amazing world, the world of motorsports. One day you’re down, the next day you’re up.” Juan Pablo Montoya will start second in today’s race, followed by Kyle Busch and Brian Vickers. Joey Logano qualified fifth, giving Toyota three cars in the top five. “A lot better than we expected,” Kyle Busch said. “The guys did a good job with it and gave me a good piece to run a good lap. That’s all we can ask for. We’ve been having sort of a struggle this weekend so far and trying to make something out of nothing here.” Jamie McMurray, who grew up in nearby Joplin, Mo., and visited the tornado-ravaged town Thursday, will start sixth. Sprint Cup points leader Carl Edwards, also a Missouri native, will start seventh — the highest of any of the Fords in the field. “I’m not going to tell you exactly what I did wrong, but I know it was something,” Edwards said. “I think we are


bit, but I think Clint was just being patient. He by far had the dominant truck.” Sauter was second, followed by Todd Bodine, James Buescher, Joey Coulter, Tomorrow Busch, Brenis going to be dan Gaugha handful.

Couldn’t get it to where it needed to be.” Sauter took over the points lead, moving 12 ahead of rookie Cole Whitt. Whitt stayed in the middle of the pack for most of the day, starting 16th and finishing 15th. Austin Dillon, who started on the pole, fell off the pace early and was penalized twice, once for coming out of pit road too fast and once for entering too fast. He finished 12th. Four-time series champion Ron Hornaday, who entered fifth in the standings, blew his left rear tire and hit the wall 17 laps in. He finished 30th. Bowyer, meanwhile, will try to become the second racer to sweep a weekend at Kansas Speedway. Joe Nemechek did it in 2004, winning Nationwide and Cup races on consecutive days. Bowyer will have to move up significantly to challenge for a win, however. He will start 27th today. “Tomorrow is going to be a handful. It’s going to be a bear,” Bowyer said. “I want to win a Cup race here bad.”

SPRINT CUP DRIVER KURT BUSCH WATCHES from the top of his hauler during qualifying Saturday at Kansas Speedway in Kansas City, Kan. going to have a really good shot at this race and that would mean a lot to me.” Dale Earnhardt Jr.’s momentum after a gutwrenching but promising second-place finish at Charlotte stalled with a qualifying run of 28th. Jimmie Johnson, who beat Edwards to win here in 2008, will start 31st — by far his worst position in Kansas. Today’s race will mark the midway point of the Sprint Cup’s regular season, and three drivers looking to move up in the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship standings are hoping to become Kansas’ first three-time winner. Tony Stewart (13th), Greg Biffle (14th) and Jeff Gordon (22nd) all have a pair of wins here — but none of them will start in the top 10. Gordon, who took Kansas’s first two races in 2001-02, has seven top-five finishes at the track and four in a row. Biffle took first in 2007,

won again last fall in a Chase event and has the best driver rating of any driver at Kansas, ahead of Johnson. Stewart won Kansas in 2006 and 2009. Of course, the way this season has gone almost anyone has a realistic shot at a win. Just five of the 12 winners in the Cup series so far this season have started from 20th or better. This is the first summer Sprint Cup race on the schedule for Kansas, which added an event for 2011. Drivers expect the track to be hot and slick for today’s race, which will start at noon local time. The track will host its traditional fall race on October 9. “There’s a bunch of differences with being out here in June and how warm it is. But I always look at the law of averages. If you’ve struggled somewhere for a long time, then maybe it’s — you’re due,” Busch said.

NASCAR looking into Childress, Busch reports K A N S A S C I T Y , K AN . ( AP ) — NASCAR is looking into reports that Kyle Busch and 65-year-old car owner Richard Childress were involved in an altercation Saturday after the Trucks Series race at Kansas Speedway. Busch finished sixth, a spot behind Richard Childress Racing driver Joey Coulter after the two had a spirited late battle for position. Busch drove up beside Coulter’s truck following the race. When asked what happened between the two, Coulter joked that, according to the

spotters, Busch was just congratulating him. Busch is on probation through June 15 following a post-race, pit-road confrontation with RCR driver Kevin Harvick at Darlington. On May 24 in North Carolina, Busch was cited for careless and reckless driving, and speeding after driving 128 mph in a 45 mph zone. Bill Janitz, a spokesman for Busch, told The Associated Press in an email that “there won’t be any comment tonight.” A phone message left for Richard Childress Racing seeking comment was not immediately returned.

“What a great kid,” Self said of Naadir, New England Preparatory School Athletic Council player of the year. “This kid showed up on his recruiting visit in a tie. He reminds me a lot of Aaron (Miles, KU career assists leader, 954, 2002-05). There are things about him ... people gravitate to him. “I think he’ll be a great leader for us, a great recruiter for us moving forward. I’ll be shocked if he’s not more an impact player next season than what a lot of people think. He’s a lot better player than his ranking,” Self added. Tharpe — he chose KU over Oklahoma, Minnesota, St. John’s, UCLA, UNLV, Indiana, Marquette, North Carolina State and Boston College — is looking forward to getting right in the gym. He shot baskets with his teammates, including fellow freshman Ben McLemore of St. Louis, on Saturday night at the Boogie. “I’m just going to work on my defense. Like coach said, ‘You can’t get in the game unless you keep your man in front of you,’’’ Tharpe said. “I’m going to work on every-


game. In the opener, it was watching the Heat grab 16 of their misses, leading to them taking 13 more shots than the Mavs. Dallas cleaned that up in Game 2, only to spring another leak with 20 turnovers; Miami turned them into 31 points. “It’s very unusual to win a game the way we did in Game 2,” Dallas coach Rick Carlisle said. “That kind of template is not going to hold up in this series long term. We know that.” The Mavericks also can’t expect to duplicate their performance over the last 7:14 of Game 2. That would be tough to do on a video game. After all, Dallas made nine of its last 10 shots, while forcing Miami to miss nine in a row and 10 of 11. But the Mavs can do some of the things they did right in that stretch. The main thing is playing more of their “flow” offense, which is basically freelancing, except that Jason Kidd is orchestrating it all. When Dallas was in its set offense, Miami did a good job of covering everyone, no matter how often the Mavericks passed the ball. And there were many times when they just kept passing because nobody felt open enough to shoot.

ELLIE NOLL, 4, OF SMITHVILLE, MO., GETS HER SHIRT AUTOGRAPHED by Kansas men’s basketball player Travis Releford on Saturday at the Bill Self parent-child basketball camp in Allen Fieldhouse. thing I need to work on to become better and be able to get on the floor. I’m excited. It was a lot of work to get here.” Tharpe was glad an outing such as the Boogie was scheduled on his first night in town. “It’s exciting. I got a chance to meet a lot of new people, plus I got a chance to be hanging around with the dudes from the team,” Tharpe said.

When Dallas is “flowing,” there’s less predictability because even the Mavericks don’t know what they are going to do. Kidd looks at the matchups and figures out the best way to attack. If the Heat are double-teaming Nowitzki, he’ll throw it elsewhere. Whoever gets it will either have an open shot or pass it again so someone else does. Once the Mavs got going, room opened up. Of all aspects of the Game 2 finish, this is the one Dallas has the best chance of picking up where it left off, especially if Jason Terry found his stroke. He was 4-of-16 for the series before making all three shots he took during the winning rally. “We understand how to play off of one another,” Kidd said. “What happened in those 7 minutes, we started to play like we did when we were playing the Lakers, and also Oklahoma City, where we weren’t calling plays, and we were just playing.” Neither team has yet to play a full game it can be proud of. Game 3 is a great place to start considering the history of series tied at 1 since the NBA went to 2-3-2 format; all 11 winners have been crowned the champs. Miami tied Dallas for the best road record this season, but is only 4-3 on the road in the playoffs. That includes losses by 21 points in Chicago and 16 points in Boston.

“Coach Self is here. Everybody got all dressed up. It’s a fun time. “I’m 100 percent happy to be around the team. There’s definitely some tension, a little bit of nervousness going on. I just can’t wait for everything to get started.” Any chance he’ll get homesick this summer? “No chance. No chance,” he


Boogie fever: The Boogie, which includes an auction, raises money for Bill and Cindy Self’s Assists Foundation. The foundation benefits various youth initiatives including awarding college scholarships to area youths. “This has been a great night,” Self said. “It’s great for everybody to let their hair down, relax and enjoy the night. It was really cool. What it did was raise a lot of money for youths in our area. We are appreciative of everybody who supports this cause.” He said it was a big thrill last year in personally handing out scholarship checks to eight youths. “A lot of these kids wouldn’t have the opportunity to go to school if it weren’t for some assistance,” Self said. “We’re really proud to be able to play a role in that. I’m proud of the recipients.” Of the outfits of he and his wife, Self said: “My wife looks great. She looks like a cross between one of the go-go girls in an Austin Powers movie or someone from the late 70s, early 80s. She certainly looks a lot better than her spouse. It’s fun to see all these people dressed up.”

Senior-to-be Steven Johnson (last year’s leading tackler) is the only returning linebacker who played a significant role in 2010, and the unit also expects to be bolstered by the return of sophomore Huldon Tharp, who started as a true freshman but missed all of last season because of injury. That leaves a spot or two for the newcomers, and Bakare already has his eye on one of them. “My goal is to come there and start,” he said. “Help us get to a championship, that’s what my goal is.” Because of his speed — he’s been clocked at 4.35 seconds in the 40-yard dash — Bakare said the KU coaching staff has told him they’d like to utilize him as a linebacker and a nickel back. “They want to bring me in as a nickel rover,” he said. “I’m an outside linebacker, but I also can do the things required of a strong safety so I can really do two things and it’s going to help them be able to keep their linebackers on the field and not feel like they have to bring in a DB when they go to that nickel coverage.”

— Turner Gill, on KU’s linebackers Like everyone who plays for Gill, Bakare’s going to have to earn his way onto the field. But if what Gill says of the incoming linebackers is true, it’s a safe bet that several of them will play meaningful snaps this fall. “These guys have shown that they can go from sideline to sideline,” said Gill of his new linebackers on signing day. “They can hit people, they can splatter people, they can knock the ball out. They showed that.” It remains to be seen what Bakare’s role will be, but one thing already is certain. “I’m ready to get down there and make things happen,” Bakare said. “(Kansas was) the best opportunity for me and my family. It has the best academics, it has a great coach, it has great players and I think they’re hungry to win and to change history there.” Bakare and the rest of the incoming class will report to campus tonight. — KU football beat writer Matt Tait can be reached at 832-7227.

McCray, who suffered a knee injury during her senior season at Kansas University and sat out her rookie year with the Sun, scored 14 points, hit all five shots she took from the field and had four threepointers. “I can’t really say I expected it, but I’ve been working hard,” she said. “So, I couldn’t say it wasn’t going to happen. I’ve been staying after for shooting and working on my shot a lot.” Tina Charles had 18 points and six rebounds to lead Connecticut. Renee Montgomery added 15 points and Asjha Jones scored 10 of her 14 points in the second half. Charles, who averaged more than 15 points and 11 rebounds in winning the league’s Rookie of the Year honors last season, said

McCray’s outside shooting kept the defense from collapsing inside. “I rarely got double teamed tonight,” she said. “It happened maybe a couple of times. But the way Danielle was hitting and the way our guards penetrated, it really opened things up underneath.” Nicky Anosike, who was acquired from the Minnesota Lynx two days before the WNBA Draft, and Crystal Langhorne each had 16 points to lead Washington. McCray came off the bench and her first two shots, both three-pointers, helped spark the second-quarter surge. “She just kind of took a deep breath and played a little bit,” Sun coach Mike Thibault said. Connecticut paid tribute to former center Margo Dydek before the game with a moment of silence and video montage. The 7-foot-2 center, who played for the Sun from 2005-07, died Friday after being placed in a medically induced coma following a heart attack. She was 37.

Lawrence arts advocates react to closure of Kansas Arts Commission By Sarah Henning

With one stroke of a pen, Gov. Sam Brownback ruined Mary Doveton’s holiday weekend. “I think we were all holding out until the last ray of hope ...” said the Theatre Lawrence leader, letting her voice trail off. As it stands, starting July 1, the only extra dollars going into the coffers of Kansas arts organizations like Theatre Lawrence will come from private donors. Next month, Kansas arts organizations will have no direct access to government funding — state, regional or national. For Lawrence, that means a certain loss of at least $121,957 from the state. That’s the amount city organizations and artists received in 2010 from the Kansas Arts Commission. In January, Brownback indicated he wanted to privatize the KAC and eliminate state funding for the organization, which supplies grants and other funds statewide. The move was designed to save a total of $689,000 from the $13.8 billion state budget. However, taking away state funding to the KAC also eliminates roughly $1.2 million in federal funding because both the National Endowment of the Arts and the Mid-America Arts Alliance can only deliver money to state-funded programs. As a result, any privatized arts entity would have to compete with its own grantees for money. Though Kansans fought back, encouraging legislators to leave the KAC in the state’s 2012 fiscal budget, the governor used his line-item veto power to eliminate it from the budget Saturday morning. “I know I’ve had a number of questions about how the funding cuts will affect the theater. Up until this weekend, I would tell them I’d hope that it wouldn’t happen,” said Doveton, who is now officially facing a $13,000 hole for fiscal year 2012. “I had the good fortune of being present when the Senate was voting on it. And I got to hear what some of the senators were saying about the arts — both the people who were voting in favor of restoring funding and those who were voting against it. “I really thought after that huge outpouring that the governor might reconsider.”

KAC SUPPORT FOR AREA ARTISTS, AGENCIES This fiscal year, the Kansas Arts Commission is supporting 16 different Lawrence artists and art groups through 27 separate grants. Here’s a breakdown of where that $121,957 has gone.

BUDGET NUMBERS Total 2011 fiscal budget for Kansas: $14 billion; funds appropriated for the KAC — $798,000 (.0057 percent of the total budget) Total 2012 fiscal budget for Kansas: $13.8 billion; funds appropriated for the KAC — $689,000 (.005 percent of the total budget). This funding was vetoed.

‘Trend-setting’ changes He didn’t. In fact, Doveton said Brownback wasn’t present at all for the funding discussion for the KAC. The Brownback camp promises to personally help raise money for the privatized council, and while many defended the KAC as an entity to help attract federal arts funding, Brownback said federal funding of the arts was going to decrease because of budget pressures and the national deficit. “While we may be a trendset-

ter now in the area, I think you are going to see a number of states pursue this same avenue that we are doing in the state of Kansas,” he said. Despite that assurance of personal aid, local arts organizations have been shoring up their defenses — both before and after the final elimination of the KAC. Doveton, along with Lynne Green of Van Go Mobile Arts and Janeal Krehbiel of the Lawrence Children’s Choir, all say they have upcoming financial planning meetings on the schedule to hammer out how to make up the shortfall. All say they do not want to raise tuition, though they are looking at losing federal money, too. It is unclear as to whether anyone in Washington, D.C., will address the possibility of using NEA money to directly fund a private state arts organization that doesn’t have its own government’s backing. “I think most of all the arts Please see ARTS, page 8B

Dog now hare apparent to tackling garden intruders


if you must know, I’m a bunny hater.

This kind and gentle soul of the ’70s who knew every word to “Bless the Beasts and Children” — the bleeding-hearted hippie girl who could never hurt a fly, much less an adorable, hippityhoppity wabbit — has grown b-bb-bad to the bone. Hating bunnies. Is there a faster, more direct, one-way ticket to Hell than that? But, I do. I hate them. I loathe them so much, I’m taking it out on the dog. “Go get ‘em, Lucy!” I cry, hopefully, as I release her to the out-

doors where four young rabbits brazenly gnaw the last of my portulacas.

She sprints after them, as fast as her little cocker spaniel legs can carry her, but to no avail. Those hateful hares scatter in all directions, darting under the deck, through the fence, behind the shed and into the neighbors’ yard. Lucy slinks back to the house, frustrated and ashamed. I feel sorry for her, but I can’t contain my disappointment. “You ain’t NEVER caught a rabbit, and you ain’t no friend of mine,” I say, disapprovingly. (There’s no guilt so deep as the bunny-hating/dog-shaming variety. Unless you throw spoilingyour-kids into the mix.)

It’s a whole new level of mean to hate bunnies — unlike other yard varmints such as squirrels, opossums and skunks — especially when one was raised on Beatrix Potter. As a preschooler, I adored the tale of Peter Rabbit and his sisters, Flopsy, Mopsy and Cottontail. My first “big girl bed” was painted with their cuddly likenesses. Now, at 55, I’ve morphed into Mr. McGregor, chasing those pesky pests around with a garden hoe. Still, I’m haunted by that Carpenters’ song: “Bless the beasts and the children, for in this Please see BOOMER, page 8B

organizations in Lawrence are all in the same boat. We’re all kind of exploring and obviously looking for donations, looking for underwriters, looking for sponsors, looking at grant possibilities,” Doveton said. “I think we’re all looking at those options and exploring and pushing them before we say, ‘Look guys, we’ve got to raise prices.’ Because, I think that’s the last thing that any of us want to do.”

Vermont’s rebuttal On May 25, the Wednesday before Brownback’s decision, Alexander Aldrich, executive director of the Vermont Arts Council, wrote an open letter to the governor. In it, he dismisses Brownback’s claims that a privatized version of the KAC would thrive — an assumption the governor had mentioned came from Aldrich’s VAC. Though a nonprofit organization, the VAC receives about $500,000 a year in state funds. “First, in Vermont our nonprofit state arts agency is effective only BECAUSE there is significant state investment in our work,” Aldrich wrote. “Without a state appropriation of just over $500,000 we would be unable to provide the professional development services, educational outreach to underserved communities, accessibility services to hundreds of historic cultural venues that were built long before the passage of the ADA, and a host of other grants that support our creative sector.” Aldrich also pointed out what many of the governor’s critics already have argued: Without funding, the state will not only lose out on those federal funds, but also the economic benefits derived from a thriving arts scene. An arts scene that employs local workers and encourages spending not only on the

Sam Brownback used his line-item veto power to eliminate it from the budget over Memorial Day weekend. arts themselves (tickets, works, lessons), but also on the accompaniments of a good time — a dinner out before a show, dessert or drinks afterward. “Our sector provides good jobs. It adds enormous social and civic value to our communities,” wrote Aldrich, who estimated Vermont’s return of investment from the arts is a whopping 775 percent. “It improves the relationship that young people have with their schools and communities. And it serves as a powerful attraction to entrepreneurs seeking to locate their new businesses in a creative, vital community setting. The ‘creative economy’ is real, and it is thriving here in Vermont. I believe that all these arguments are relevant to making the case for keeping the Kansas Arts Commission on sound financial, PUBLIC footing.” Aldrich and Kansas arts supporters aren’t going to get that wish anytime soon, it seems. On Wednesday, the Kansas House failed to override the veto in the last legislative session of 2011. The override won the simple majority of the votes 50-44, but it would have needed two-thirds majority to succeed. “This veto makes Kansas

the laughingstock of the nation,” said Rep. Ann Mah, D-Topeka. Indeed, neighbors in the arts community — though not yet fearful of a similar move by their states despite Brownback’s insistence on Kansas being a “trendsetter” — are wondering what’s really happening in the country’s heart. “I’ve had phone calls from some my colleagues, and once again, to a certain extent, it’s ‘What’s the matter with Kansas?’ that they would even consider something like that,” said Tim Van Leer, executive director of the Lied Center, which will lose direct funding for the programs it provides to Lawrence-area school children. “Especially, with the amount of money that’s being impacted and the impact that that money has. That’s the really incredible thing — that the governor believes that a private foundation can make the arts flourish in Kansas, when there is an organization that already helps the arts flourish in Kansas. And so, it’s like falling backwards and starting all over again.” — Staff writer Sarah Henning can be reached at 832-7187. — Statehouse reporter Scott Rothschild contributed to this


world, they have no voice. They have no choice.” I’ve even started planning their demise in my dreams. Sometimes, I’ll force a scared rabbit to walk the plank, poking its furry white tail with my dandelion weeder. “Say your prayers, Little Bunny Foo Foo!” I snarl. “You’re going overboard!” Other times, I’ll slip a noose around its neck, or give the order to execute the critter by firing squad. “READY ... AIM ...” Before I can complete the command, he looks at me, helpless, those big rabbit eyes piercing my own. Karen and Richard pop back into my brain: “Bless the beasts and the children. Give them shelter from the storm. Keep them safe. Keep them warm.” The bunny guilt! I can’t stand it! I run to the rabbit, arms outstretched, and place a tiny black hood over his little head.

“FIRE!!” I scream. And the guns blaze. That’s just in my fantasy life, of course. In reality, I scream “Shoo,” wave my arms like a madwoman, and put rubber snakes in the flower beds. Sometimes, I’ll stand there counting like I used to do with the kids: “I’ll give you the count of three to hightail it out of this yard: One ... two … two-and-a-half … two-and-three-quarters.” (Never worked with the kids; doesn’t work with rabbits.) Occasionally, I’ll pick up a rock and pretend to throw it. But, my form is so bad, even the bunnies know I couldn’t hit the side of a barn. It’s gotten so bad, I’ve come to resent ALL rabbits: Bugs, Br’er, Roger, Jessica. I’ve already canceled Easter next year. The other day, I took the Energizer batteries out of the remote and replaced them with generics, just for spite. I’m glad my father isn’t alive to see this. The man

had a thing for Thumper. Not in a sick, kinky way, but in the way a normal adult male can be overcome by the cuteness of a Disney forest creature. (It happens.) Dad memorized every line that darling rabbit ever uttered in “Bambi.” And when Thumper became “twitterpated,” thwacking his hind foot like a little jackhammer, the old man fell to pieces. I’m sorry about this rant. I really am. It’s just that the bunnies living under our deck have destroyed about a hundred dollars worth of plants this spring. Don’t they know gas is approaching four bucks a gallon? Money is tight! Like Elmer Fudd, I think I’ve got a right to stew a little. Wait a minute! Did someone say “stew”?

sippi, who thrills at how super-skinny she’ll be by pageant time. In a feminist manifesto that reads like Mad magazine, only 13 of 50 state contestants have survived the crash, including Miss Illinois, Miss Michigan and perennial pageant survivor in real life, Miss California, who in “Beauty Queens” isn’t an Amazonian blond but a petite, secondgeneration Indian American. Of the survivors, only Miss New Hampshire sees the pageant as an objectification rather than a glorification of women. She describes herself as a “beauty pageant Che Guevara” on her sure-to-beedited Miss Teen Dream Fun Facts Page — one of several in a book whose format is as unconventional as its story line. In addition to occasional Fun Facts vetted by Miss Teen Dream’s sponsor, The Corporation, there are scripts for commercial breaks that interrupt the

novel’s action, as if “Beauty Queens” was a TV show. There are also footnotes explaining products like What R U, A Woolly Mammoth? eyebrow gel and TV programs such as “Bridal Death Match,” which is about “brides who cage-fight each other in order to win the wedding of their dreams,” and “Patriot Daughters,” for which Betsy Ross has been reimagined as a scantily clad harlot. A send-up of commercial culture, narcissistic reality TV programming and beauty products that shame women while fixing their supposed flaws, “Beauty Queens” is a brainy, laugh-out-loud pageturner that teeters on the edge of insanity without ever losing its footing. Bray’s voice is not only singular but sharp as a Ginsu, incorporating veiled references to “Jersey Shore,” ’N Sync and other inexplicably popular cultural atrocities designed to appeal to an ever-dumber America.

As the contestants navigate an island that Miss Mississippi describes as “super creepy” and “like a haunted Chuck E. Cheese’s where the games all want to kill you and you never get your pizza,” they begin to pull back the curtain on the pageant and what it means. In the process, they find their individual selves. They also happen upon an evil dictator, a corporate conspiracy and, just when you think “Beauty Queens” is about to suffer from an estrogen overdose, a boat of hot pirates who, of course, have their own TV show. While it takes half the book to keep the contestants straight, “Beauty Queens” does exactly what Miss Texas encouraged at the book’s beginning: “In the pageant of life, a girl picks up fallen sequins and turns them into a brand-new dress of awesome.” Bray’s latest is that brand-new dress. It’s a wonderfully executed, high-concept, feminist, comic tragedy.

The mosquito is the most deadly bug. of bugs. It makes us jumpy to see some tiny little thing skittering around, and we don’t know where it’s headed next. For the most part, there is no reason to fear (bugs) at all. But it is reasonable to be afraid of the 100 or so in “Wicked Bugs.” Q. What’s the most deadly of the wicked bugs? A. In terms of the number of people it has killed, the mosquito, which has been with us throughout our history. It’s a blood-sucker, so it transmits not only malaria but one of every f ive insect-transmitted diseases. About 500 million people suffer from malaria around the world every year. And it transmits a lot of diseases you’ve never heard of, like

lymphatic f ilariasis, also called elephantiasis. Q. You write that typhusinfected body lice were largely responsible for stopping Napoleon’s army. What other insect has had such a dramatic effect? A. The boll weevil, which wiped out cotton crops, changed the course of history for the South. A lot of (plantations) were forced out of the cotton business, which strangely was a good thing. (Many plantations) had to grow peanuts instead, which turned out to be more profitable. (Flour) weevils were a huge problem for soldiers in the Civil War. They infested the hardtack the soldiers carried, their only portable food. So much so that the soldiers joked they didn’t have to carry their rations, because their rations could walk on their own. Q. Bedbugs had made headlines the past couple of years. A. They’re tough to eradi c a te . Th e c h a n ge f ro m wooden beds to brass and iron beds was a response to bedbugs, because the little cracks in the wood frames were places for them to hide. They couldn’t get a

foothold on metal. Until World War II, having bedbugs was like having houseflies — they were ubiquitous. It was only when we started using really horrible chemicals that we wiped out bedbugs, along with everything else. Fortunately, we don’t use those chemicals anymore, so here they come again. Q. A lot of mythology surrounds the brown recluse spider. A. It’s found in about 16 states, but arachnologists from the University of California say there are no brown recluse spiders in California. They held a “show me the spider” challenge and invited people to send in what they believed to be brown recluses in exchange for a cash reward, and no one ever claimed the prize. A lot of things get misdiagnosed as brown recluse spider bites, but there are no verif ied deaths from them. Q. As a veteran gardener, what was your worst bug bite? A. Apart from some fire ants, some biting midges (nosee-ums) and a couple of bee stings, I’ve never had a devastating bug bite.

Bio looks at Babe Didrikson, the greatest all-sport athlete ever By Ann Levin Associated Press Writer

Babe Ruth, Muhammad Ali, Michael Jordan, Wayne Gretzky — they were all great athletes, some of the best the 20th century had to offer. But none excelled in as many sports as Mildred “Babe” Didrikson, the two-sport Hall of Famer who helped found the Ladies Professional Golf Association and won more consecutive tournaments than any man or woman in

U.S. golf history. Born a century ago to penniless Norwegian immigrants in Port Arthur, Texas, Didrikson came of age at a time when professional sports opportunities for women were almost nonexistent. To make matters worse, she was subjected to vicious attacks because of her boyish appearance and brash manner. Through an almost pathological degree of hard work, Didrikson shone at virtually every sport she tried, includ-

ing baseball, boxing, swimming, diving and bowling. She was a basketball AllAmerican and won three Olympic track and f ield medals before finally devoting herself to golf. How Didrikson qualified for the 1932 Los Angeles Games is one of many remarkable anecdotes in New York Times reporter Don Van Natta Jr.’s new biography, “Wonder Girl: The Magnificent Sporting Life of Babe Didrikson Zaharias.” As a publicity stunt, her coach

in Dallas had sent her to the qualifying meet as the sole representative of her track team. Competing in eight of 10 events, she single-handedly won the national championship, finishing first in five events and tying for first in a sixth. Van Natta calls her the greatest all-sport athlete ever, but spares no details of her obnoxious, showboating personality, especially early in her career. Once she settled on golf as her meal ticket, however, she was smart enough to realize

that being gracious might serve her better. When she was stricken with rectal cancer — the disease that finally killed her in 1956 — she became magnanimous, dedicating her wins to cancer patients everywhere. Her victory at the 1954 U.S. Women’s Open by an incredible 12 strokes, just 15 months after a colostomy, was “probably the most incredible athletic feat of all time, given her condition,” wrote Los Angeles Times sports columnist Jim Murray.

‘Band to watch’ Hospital Ships releasing Lonely Twin By Michael C. Auchard Special to the Journal-World

Jordan Geiger admits he has a problem. It’s an addiction that, if left unchecked, leaves him squirming, unable to find release even in dreams. The former member of bands Minus Story, Shearwater and The Appleseed Cast says he’s only really comfortable in one situation. “Recording is my favorite thing in the whole world,” Geiger says. “So every part of the process is the best for me. Spending a day in the studio, even if I don’t do anything, is like the only time I can sleep soundly. I feel like life makes sense to me when recording.” Geiger, the writer, lyricist, singer and overall front man of the Lawrence-based altpop group Hospital Ships, will be releasing the band’s second album, Lonely Twin, Tuesday through recording label Graveface. The album will feature 11 tracks of what feel, by-andlarge, like a sonically fuzzy warm blanket on a winter’s night. Geiger’s high, understated vocals move over oftentimes-sparse instrumental arrangements, evoking a sense of simple beauty, surging to complex heights at turns. On tracks like “Carry On” and “New Life” there is a sense of impermanence in the lyrics, but also a quiet acceptance of the inevitable.

MEMBERS OF THE BAND Hospital Ships are, from left, Mitch Jones, Jordan Geiger, Katlyn Conroy and, not pictured, Nick Stahl.

RELEASE PARTY What: Tentative plans for release party for Hospital Ships’ second album, Lonely Twin, with the Hips When: 7 p.m. June 17 Where: Love Garden Sounds, 822 Mass. Geiger says the lyrics for his songs come from life experiences and his reac-

tions to those events. The Missouri native also has a deep, romanticized attachment to the sea. “A lot of my songs come from really personal things,” he says, “like on ‘Little Dead Leaf,’ it’s literally about a dream I had that sort of haunted me over the years. The nautical thing is kind of, well, I’d never seen the ocean until I was 23 or 24. The first time I ever swam in

the ocean was last year, so it’s always been kind of a mythical place for me. ‘Moby Dick’ is, of course, awesome, and being in a band is kind of like being on a ship with a bunch of dudes at sea.” Geiger says he began recording Lonely Twin in January of 2009. The recording process has spanned multiple studios, multiple groups of musicians and multiple states, with work

taking place in Columbia, Mo., and Austin and Dallas, Texas,as well as Geiger’s home. “My friend John Congleton has a really awesome studio and is a wellrenowned studio engineer. He would say he had a spare day and I would basically get a band together and drive down to Dallas and record three songs in a day. Most of the time, the band didn’t even know the songs.” Despite the long, cramped hours driving across state lines in a van or the onagain, off-again recording schedule, Geiger says he has no regrets about the recording process. “There’s no bad part,” he says. “It exhausts me because it’s so intense. (In the studio) I can’t listen to music for such a long time. My ears — I don’t think people realize how much ear fatigue can (screw) you up. I love it, though. Everything about recording, I love. This is the first time I’ve really taken my time and done a really hi-fi studio album. I really tried to put together a collection of songs that would be worth waiting for and doing videos and hiring a publicist. When I do demos, I always imagine how it will be at the end, and, you know, really spend-



John Hawkes lifts ‘Earthwork’ with great performance as stoic artist Stan Herd By Eric Melin Special to the Journal-World

It’s ironic that writer/director Chris Ordal’s quietly moving “Earthwork” opens its run at Liberty Hall the weekend after Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback erased the funding for the Kansas Arts Commission. Shot almost entirely in Kansas and based on the true story of Lawrence crop artist Stan Herd, “Earthwork” is a testament to the power within art to bring people together, even in the most unlikely of circumstances. That is summed up in the story, but it also goes for the cast and crew, who pulled together to create a film that looks a lot more expensive than it actually was. (The budget has been reported to be near just $1 million.) John Hawkes, an Oscar nominee for last year’s “Winter’s Bone,” plays Herd with the kind of stoic determination that the Midwest is known for. The movie absolutely hinges on his performance, and he carries the film on his reliable shoulders, even through some of its bumpier moments. Growing up on a farm in Kansas, Herd is inspired early on and by the time he reaches adulthood, he is gaining some notoriety for turning tracts of land into still-life paintings made of grass, soil, flowers, rock

Special to the Journal-World

JOHN HAWKES, who was nominated for a best supporting actor Academy Award for his role in “Winter’s Bone,” plays Lawrence artist Stan Herd, who in 1994 attempted a massive earthwork on a piece of land in New York’s UpperWest Side. and other natural elements. He’s like a landscaper, only you have to be in an airplane or helicopter to be able to fully appreciate his work. In 1994, Herd heads to New York City to convince Donald Trump’s company that he’s the right man to build a public art project on a vacant, overgrown acre of land. After winning the proposal solely based on the fact that he requires no funding, Herd finds that the lot isn’t quite vacant, and the denizens who have made it their temporary home could become great allies in his endeavor. Hawkes is the film’s center. He has an expressive and

trusting face, and the movie’s most genuine moments come slowly and naturally, sometimes without the benefit of much dialogue. The lot’s squatters circle him slowly and suspiciously, sizing him up. After all, this lanky cowboy who keeps moving things around is a squatter of sorts as well. Still, Herd doesn’t announce his presence and hold a meet-and-greet, he gets to work. Herd has so much work to do that he sometimes sleeps on the lot, despite having a nearby hotel. This intriguing group of misfits — a mysterious man with a limp called the Mayor

(Zach Grenier), a poet named El-Trac (Sam Greenlee), the silent and angry Lone Wolf (James McDaniel) and a graffiti artist who has been homeless for five years (Chris Bachand) — gradually warm up to him. A slow kinship and respect develops between them, and Herd’s unassuming nature helps the audience to reserve judgment as well. The same can’t be said for some of the scenes at home with his wife (Laura Kirk), however, which are a little rote and underdeveloped. Although he puts his family at great risk financially, this element of the script is barely explored. Perhaps if the budget were bigger, Ordal could have added some shots that juxtapose both Herd’s art and his laid-back demeanor with that of the Upper West Side, strengthening the film from a visual standpoint. Still, the casual pace of the film and its central conceit get the point across. The ephemerality of Herd’s crop art is magnified by the fact that, days after his project is due to be finished, bulldozers will clear out the lot to make way for a skyscraper. Ultimately, “Earthwork” poses an interesting question. Does the true value of art lie in its creation or the pleasure that others get while viewing it?

ing the money. Going to a real studio with real equipment is a very fulfilling thing.” Geiger says the album’s track listing was a subject of “huge debate among me and my cohorts,” and that he ended up arranging it in a manner that rewards persistent listeners. “There’s something about the second half of a record,” he says, “that you’re already that far into it — that if you’ve listened that far, then the artist can stretch out. I always put my favorite stuff on the end because it’s kind of a badass thing to do. I wouldn’t like a record that kinda peters out.” The album has already received airtime from some prestigious media outlets. On May 6 the track “Honey Please” was featured as NPR Music’s Song of the Day, and recently named Hospital Ships a “Band to Watch,” based off of the upbeat track “Reprise.” “The writer that put us on the best new music thing (NPR) was just a freelance writer who got the record and dug it,” Geiger says. “I think he was into it that we were from Lawrence. I feel like everybody in the country knows Lawrence.”

Trolley a fanciful figure for collectors

By Terry Kovel

Kevin Anderson/Journal-World Photos

JANE KUWANA weeds at the Demonstration Gardens at the Douglas County Fairgrounds on Thursday, preparing for the Master Gardeners Tour for the weekend. Maintaining gardens is one way Master Gardeners can donate volunteer time back to the community.

Become a Master Gardener I think I was 17 the first time I heard someone introduce himself as a Master Gardener. We were working on a garden project together in my home community. “Master?” I thought. I wondered what it took to earn such a title when it came to gardening. Of course, instead of asking the gentleman what the master in master gardener meant, I fantasized about growing recordbreaking tomatoes and giant peony blossoms. I wondered if there was a written exam or if I could test my skills with handson knowledge. Maybe I could qualify for the “master” title by driving a roto-tiller around little orange cones or beating a speed record to re-string a weedeater. Thankfully, my curiosity got to me before I started trying to hone any of these skills. What I learned (some of it later in life): ● Being a Master Gardener is about teaching others what you know about gardening. ● Being a Master Gardener is about learning the science behind why gardeners do what they do and accepting that we always have more to learn. ● Being a Master Gardener is about giving time to the community. Is this sounding any easier? I hope so! Now I have the opportunity to work with Extension Master Gardeners almost every day and am responsible for training newcomers each year. Some of them really can grow prize-winning African violets or identify hosta varieties from 100 yards away. Some of them know more than I can ever hope to know about certain types of plants. However, most of them are just regular people. No, wait. They are regular people who enjoy gardening. Earning the title of Master Gardener does provide a few challenges. Namely, there is a training class that meets one day a week from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Historically the class has met on Tuesdays, and this year will be Tuesdays from Aug. 23 to Nov. 15. Course instructors are local experts, professors from Kansas State University and me. Each session is jam-packed with

Garden Calendar


I inherited a huge 1960s desk about 20 years ago. It has two parts - a long honey-colored wooden desk with a Formica top and two side drawers, and a long credenza that fits perpendicularly under the top of the desk. The credenza has a wooden frame and two fabric-covered sliding doors. Both pieces have straight tapered legs. A label on the back of the credenza says, “Planner Group, designed by Paul McCobb, Winchendon Furniture Co., Winchendon, Mass.” Did McCobb design office furniture? When were the pieces made? And what are they worth?

information on all things horticulture. After training completion, wannabe Master Gardeners have a whole year to donate 40 hours of volunteer time. Most trainees accrue volunteer hours by helping with a variety of Master Gardener activities throughout the year. When the 40 hours are done, volunteers get their official Master Gardener name badge, and sometimes I teach them the secret handshake. Each year after earning the title, Master Gardeners are required to volunteer 20 hours per year helping with the organization’s activities. They must also acquire 10 hours of continuing education in horticulture (offered locally throughout the year). Major Master Gardener activities include answering gardening questions on a horticulture hotline, planning and maintaining educational demonstration gardens, partnering with community organizations for Junior Master Gardener and Plant-ARow for the Hungry programs, speaking to community groups and providing resources at various community events. There are some other key benefits: ● Many Master Gardeners have made new friends. ● Master Gardeners love to share plants with each other. (But watch out for that lambsear.) ● Master Gardeners love to share ideas with each other. ● You’ll be the first to know anytime mulch goes on sale anywhere in town. ● Sometimes Master Gardeners will let other Master

Gardeners come see their gardens. ● Many Master Gardeners are also great cooks. (Awards dinner potluck, anybody?) ● Who else will get your hackberry jokes or discuss cross-varietal differences of Tradescantia? ● The classes provide great conversation topics for cocktail parties. ● Oh, and there’s that rewarding feeling of doing something good for the community.

A trolley, according to an American dictionary, is a cart or wagon of several types that moves on a track or wire. But in England and other parts of Europe, the definition can include a wine trolley, a cart that was used to serve wine. Today, we have table-height wine trolleys made for restaurants that are pushed by a waiter serving wine. In earlier centuries, it was the custom to roll back the tablecloth at the end of a dinner. Then the after-dinner port was coasted or slid from person to person on a dish-like wooden or silver piece that we now call a coaster. The most common form was made with a smooth wooden bottom and a low silver “fence” that held the bottle upright. But soon a more elaborate idea evolved and a wine trolley was invented. A coaster or a pair of coasters were put into a wheeled cart and rolled down the table. Antique sterling-silver trolleys sold at auctions this year for $500 to $3,000.

Paul McCobb (19171969) designed furniture for all sorts of settings, including offices. But his early designs, including his first Planner Group pieces, were designed for homes. Winchendon manufactured the popular line from 1949 to 1964. Early desks were smaller than yours and had flared, not straight, legs. Formica desktops became an option in 1956, and larger desks and credenzas with straight legs probably were introduced after that. Prices of Planner Group furniture are pretty solid, although collectors favor the earlier designs. An early desk and chair sells for about $400, and an early credenza for about $600.

Son-in-law using grandchild as blackmail tool Dear Annie: Six months after my daughter married, her husband was arrested twice. Each time, he called from jail and begged me to pay bail and then legal fees, promising to pay me back when he got out. My daughter stuck by him through seven years of prison. Now, 15 years later, he has started a business and fathered my only grandchild. We had a great family relationship, taking vacations together, etc. He began repaying the money he owed me, but suddenly stopped. Instead, he bought an expensive new car and two new iPhones and took his wife and son on a four-week vacation. I sent him an e-mail asking why he stopped making payments. He phoned and told me he would never send another cent, that I was no longer welcome in his home and that he would never allow me to see my grandchild. My daughter has gone along with everything he says. I haven’t seen my grandchild in six months. I hired an attorney, who got a judge to order mediation, but my son-in-law walked out of the session. Now he has hired an attorney who is stalling. The next court date isn’t for another four months. This is no small amount of money, Annie. It’s more than

patrons would store their ales in jars that measured in pints and quarts.

I would like to see my grandchild, but there are no grandparents’ rights in this state. My daughter, with whom I used to have a close relationship, won’t speak to me. My son-in-law tells everyone I am just a senile old lady. Apparently, I was never part of his family. He only wanted to be related to my money. How do I see my grandchild? — Brokenhearted Grandmother

Dear Grandmother: It is terribly sad when parents use the children to blackmail the grandparents. It hurts everyone and deprives those grandchildren of loving family members. Since your state does not offer the opportunity to petition for visitation, there isn’t much you can do

‘Bigfoot’ steps out of bounds As readers of this column must know by now, nothing irks your dear correspondent as much as shows like “Finding Bigfoot” (9 p.m., Animal Planet). Dolled up with fake documentary credentials and lots of grainy footage, these efforts elevate addled campfire stories to the level of “science” and demean science (and documentaries) in the process. Worse still, Animal Planet is a particular favorite of children. And to teach stillquickening minds that superstition is the same as science is a crime in my book. Why doesn’t Animal Planet commission a series called “In Search of the Easter Bunny” and get it over with? But even the most egregious fabricators cannot hide the truth forever, or from everyone — or even themselves. The stars of “Finding Bigfoot” belong to something called the Bigfoot Field Research Organization (BFRO) and the head of the BFRO is a man named Matt Moneymaker. And if that isn’t the point here, what is? ● Speaking of making money, Jason Sudeikis hosts the 2011 MTV Movie Awards (8 p.m., MTV). As it has for what seems like centuries, this award show celebrates favorite stars and moments from silly Summer movies past while anticipating and (heavily) promoting the oncoming onslaught of thought-free cinematic product-based on comic books and video games. Musical distraction will be provided by the Foo Fighters along with Lupe Fiasco and Trey Songz. ● Guests Courteney Cox, Paula Deen, Guy Fieri and others join judges Bobby Flay and Giada De Laurentis on a new season of “Food Network Star!” (8 p.m., Food). ● “The Glades” (9 p.m., A&E) returns for a second season. For the unfamiliar, this is the most popular drama in the network’s history. Matt Passmore stars as Jim Longworth, a brash Chicago detective exiled to the swampy regions of Florida. Like too many cops on cable, he’s prone to run at the mouth. If there was a scientific scale of cheeky cops, he’d fall somewhere between the genial and immature Shawn (James Roday), the fake psychic on “Psych” and Patrick Jane, Simon Baker’s haunted non-psychic on “The Mentalist.” It’s easy to see why “The Glades” works. It strives to be entertaining, not different. Like Florida itself, the supporting cast is ethnically diverse, but singularly attractive with a whiff of the exotic. And although it’s a murder mystery, “The Glades” remains blessedly free of gore and mortuary overkill.

Tonight’s other highlights ● Scheduled on “60 Minutes” (6 p.m., CBS): a repeat report on Spring rebellions in Tunisia and Egypt. ● Game 3 of the NBA Finals (7 p.m., ABC). ● Auditions continue on “America’s Got Talent” (8 p.m., NBC). ● A pair of comedians travel to exotic locales on “Mancation” (8 p.m. and 9:30 p.m., Travel). ● The Lannisters rub it in on “Game of Thrones” (8 p.m., HBO) ● Missing evidence on “The Killing” (9 p.m., AMC). ● Carnival descends upon New Orleans on “Treme” (9 p.m., HBO).



JACQUELINE BIGAR’S STARS For Sunday, June 5: This year, you demonstrate a strong interest in socializing and networking. Others are unusually receptive, and you have no problem breaking into a new crowd or extending your immediate circle. If you are single, you cannot be too careful or cautious when checking out a suitor. Someone could be emotionally unavailable. If you are attached, schedule a special weekend or two with your mate. Your relationship needs watering to grow, much like a garden. Leo understands a lot more than you realize. The Stars Show the Kind of Day You'll Have: 5Dynamic; 4-Positive; 3Average; 2-So-so; 1-Difficult Aries (March 21-April 19) ★★★★★ You come up with many fun, creative ideas. Enjoy yourself to the max. What starts out as a joke or as silliness could evolve into a brainstorming session. Tonight: Paint the town red. Taurus (April 20-May 20) ★★★★ You have a newfound buoyancy. You are difficult to say "no" to. You will be spending more time with family or close to home than you might have intended to. Tonight: Make it easy.

Gemini (May 21-June 20) ★★★★ Your instincts tell you which way to go. As a sign that is known to overintellectualize, it could be difficult to listen to brewing feelings. Try it. Tonight: Chatting the night away. Cancer (June 21-July 22) ★★★ You easily could let go and over-indulge. Each person has his or her unique Achilles' heel. Tonight. Treat someone to dinner and a movie. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) ★★★★ You are a force to be dealt with. Your plate might be full, but few people realize you are so busy. Tonight: So what if tomorrow is Monday. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) ★★★ You might need and want some downtime. A situation is changing rapidly. Though you could find it difficult to move in a new direction, you will. Just relax. Tonight: Get some extra zzz's. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) ★★★★★ Zero in on what you believe is important. A lot happens quite quickly. Plans change with a cascading new group of people. Tonight: Whatever makes you happy. Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) ★★★★ Others will come toward you with great frequency. Still, at

the moment, you could be so overwhelmed with the organization of a situation that you might not know which way to turn. Tonight: Up till the wee hours. Sagittarius (Nov. 22Dec. 21) ★★★★★ How you deal with all the excitement and adventure that keeps appearing is important. Tonight: Go for an exotic escape. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) ★★★★★ Someone has a lot to say and won't back off from sharing. No matter how you eye a situation and the choices you make, they are subject to being revised. Tonight: Add more spice to your life. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) ★★★★ Others seek you out. It seems as if everyone wants a say in what you do. Of course, that is impossible. Tonight: Enjoying your company — naturally. Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) ★★★ Slow down a little. You might feel as if you have a lot to do and a lot of people you would like to visit with. Tonight: Gather your thoughts for tomorrow.
