State tells dealerships to stop giving vehicles with dealer plates to KU athletic department By Chad Lawhorn

The Kansas Department of Revenue has ordered car dealers to change their practices when it comes to donating vehicles for use by Kansas University coaches and other athletic department employees. The state’s Vehicle Dealer Licensing Bureau has notified five dealerships across the state to no longer use dealer plates on vehicles they have donated to a

Kansas University athletic department program that provides cars to select coaches and employees. The state contacted the dealerships after hearing concerns from a member of the public and from the Douglas County treasurer that the use of dealer tags was shorting Douglas County of property tax dollars. “It probably is not the crime of the century by any means,” said Douglas County Treasurer Paula Gilchrist. “But we are con-

cerned about it. These are fairly new vehicles that normally would have above average property tax bills attached to them.” The county receives no registration fees or property taxes on cars that are tagged with a dealer’s tag, Gilchrist said.

PATTY LICHLYTER IS ONE OF 19 FULL-TIME DISPATCHERS at the Douglas County Emergency Communications Center, 111 E. 11th. Dispatchers are responsible for taking and responding to an average of 900 to 1,100 emergency calls each day for emergencies big and small, from fires and vehicle accidents to barking dogs.

Emergency dispatchers juggle hundreds of calls every day By Joe Preiner

I want it to be one of the best, top-notch professional If you’ve called 911 anytime in the past 13 years, there’s a good chance agencies of its type in the you’ve spoken with Marjorie Hed- state. If not the region and the den. country.”

She’s often one of the people on the receiving end. She’s one of 19 full-time dispatchers working in the Douglas County Emergency Communications Center in downtown Lawrence. The job, which she said is not for the faint of heart, requires a great deal of focus and concentration, not to mention the ability to multitask. On any given day, dispatchers may have to answer calls using their hands, headsets or feet. Depending on the volume of calls, the chatter among the at least three dispatchers can become distracting.

— Scott Ruf, director of the Douglas County Emergency Communications Center “It can get loud in here,” Hedden said. “You have to learn to tune it out without tuning everything out.” Focus is merely one of the many skills in which Douglas County dispatchers must be proficient. They are also required to commit to memory a wealth of knowledge, including 10-codes, computer shorthand and emergency vehicle numbers

and functions. “That’s why the training period is so long,” Hedden said. To become an emergency dispatcher in Douglas County takes time. Each dispatcher is crosstrained to handle every position on the staff. Scott Ruf, the center’s new director, said the training process can take as long as eight months. “There’s a big, big learning curve,” he said. “It’s one of those jobs where very rarely do you have someone come in that has experience.” But the training has to be demanding and comprehensive because the job needs it to be. Dispatchers are responsible for taking and responding to calls for a plethora of emergencies, from fires and vehicle accidents to violent crimes and barking Please see DISPATCH, page 10A

Well-traveled new director brings experience By Joe Preiner

Since his senior year in high school, Scott Ruf has found his calling in emergency service work. His passion for the business has taken him from New York to Washington state, with Indiana somewhere in between. Ruf has worked in many aspects of emergency services, from administrative duties to field commander for a regional SWAT team. He was on the scene following

the 1993 World Trade Center bombing. He’s dealt with hurricanes, tornadoes, floods and wildfires. Ruf’s newest responsibilities have landed him in Lawrence, as director of the Douglas County Emergency Communications Center. Barely a week into the job, Ruf took some time to explain the ins and outs of the business as well as his plans for the county agency.

Where was your last assignment? Ruf: I just left Washington state

in the city of Kennewick where I was captain for staff services and division commander.

How long have you been involved in this kind of work? Ruf: I’ve been involved in public safety since ’86-’87. When I was younger I worked in the fire service. I got involved in something that landed me in communications and it was a pretty good gig, and I got good at it. In this type of work if you become a really effective and well-rounded public safety Please see RUF, page 10A

For a moment, consider yourself Joe or Jane Average. You live in an average-priced home and you receive an average wage. So, what major Kansas city should you live in if you want to pay the least amount of local taxes? A new set of numbers and an analysis by the Journal-World suggest it is not in either one of the state’s two major university communities. Using numbers compiled by the League of Kansas MunicipaliThe analysis ties, the Kansas found that Department local taxes in of Revenue Manhattan and the U.S. Census, the and Lawrence analysis were higher found that than in any local taxes in other Kansas Manhattan and Lawrence city of more were higher than 40,000 than in any people. other Kansas city of more than 40,000 people, when measured against the average wages paid to fulltime workers in each city. Each year, the League of Municipalities publishes the total property tax rates — the mill levies charged by city governments, county governments, school boards and other miscellaneous taxing agencies — for every city in the state. The Journal-World took those numbers for the 11 cities in the state that have populations of at least 40,000 people. We also gathered sales tax rates for each city, median home prices for each city and the median annual wage for a full-time, 40hour-per-week worker in the city. Then, we tried to make sense of it all. Let us walk you through what we found.

Prison farm trains inmates, feeds needy

LEAVENWORTH (AP) — A prison farm at the U.S. Penitentiary in Leavenworth is benefiting both the inmates who grow the produce and Kansas City-area families who get fresh, healthy food for free — all at no cost to the taxpayers. Some inmates from Leavenworth’s minimum-security prison camp, who are imprisoned for non-violent crimes such as fraud and embezzlement, volunteer to work outside the secure perimeter to grow tomatoes, potatoes, sweet corn, watermelon, onions, radishes and other crops. Last year more than 80,000 pounds of the prison produce went to needy families in the greater Kansas City area. This year, estimates put donated produce at up to 200,000 pounds, The Kansas City Star reported.

Suspect in 1998 bombings killed The al-Qaida mastermind behind the 1998 bombings of U.S. embassies in Kenya and Tanzania was killed this week at a security checkpoint in Mogadishu by Somali forces who didn’t immediately realize he was the most wanted man in East Africa, officials said Saturday. The death of Fazul Abdullah Mohammed — a man who topped the FBI’s most wanted list for nearly 13 years — is the third major strike in six weeks against the worldwide terror group that was headed by Osama bin Laden until his death last month. Mohammed had a $5 million bounty on his head for planning the Aug. 7, 1998, embassy bombings. The blasts killed 224 people in Nairobi, Kenya, and Dar es Salaam, Tanzania. Most of the dead were Kenyans. Twelve Americans also died. U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton — who was on a visit to Tanzania on Saturday as Somali officials confirmed Mohammed’s death — called the killing a “significant blow to al-Qaida, its extremist allies, and its operations in East Africa.” 2 | WASHINGTON, D.C.

Rep. Weiner seeks leave of absence Under fierce pressure from fellow Democrats to resign in a sexting scandal, Rep. Anthony Weiner announced Saturday he was entering professional treatment at an undisclosed location and requested a leave of absence from Congress. An aide for the embattled New York lawmaker made the disclosure in a statement shortly after several Democratic party leaders demanded he quit for exchanging messages and photos ranging from sexually suggestive to explicit with several women online. “This sordid affair has become an unacceptable distraction for Representative Weiner, his family, his constituents and the House,” Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, the party chairwoman, said in a written statement calling for the 46-year-old married lawmaker to step down. 2 | WASHINGTON, D.C.

Small plane near Camp David intercepted NORAD says two F-15 fighters had to intercept a small aircraft that had no radio communication and was flying near the presidential retreat at Camp David, Maryland. A statement said the fighter jets met the Beechcraft Bonanza on Saturday afternoon about 11 miles from Camp David and escorted it out of the area. It landed in the nearby city of Hagerstown without incident. President Barack Obama traveled with first lady Michelle and their daughters to the retreat on Friday. The family is spending part of the weekend there. NORAD is responsible for defending North America’s air space from attacks.

Two explosions went off minutes apart in the northwest Pakistani city of Peshawar today, killing 34 people and injuring nearly 100 in one of the deadliest attacks since the U.S. raid that killed Osama bin Laden last month, officials said. The blasts, one of which was caused by a suicide bomber, occurred just after midnight in an area of the city that is home to political offices and army housing. The attack took place as CIA Director Leon Panetta and Afghan President Hamid Karzai visited Islamabad, 95 miles to the east, to speak separately with senior Pakistani officials about intelligence sharing and efforts to reconcile with the Taliban.

May marks grim milestone for civilians May was the deadliest month for Afghan civilians since the United Nations started tracking deaths in 2007, according to a report released Saturday. The carnage continued, with bombs killing 21 people nationwide — including a family on a religious pilgrimage and a child lured by a suicide attacker pushing an ice cream cart. Violence has been on the rise as the Taliban and other insurgents try to regain territory lost in the fall and winter to the U.S.-led coalition in southern Afghanistan. The insurgents have stepped up suicide attacks and bombings that are more likely to affect civilians.

When it comes to the longstanding boundary separating Free State and Lawrence high schools, members of the Lawrence school board intend to start asking questions that someday could lead to answers. Monday night, board members are scheduled to discuss several aspects of school attendance areas. Board members do not plan on making any changes to school boundaries or attendance areas or policies, but they had decided last year to at least talk about possibilities. “It’s a way to get a discussion started,” said Rick Doll, district superintendent. Monday’s talk then could help lead to further discussions later this summer, when members of school board will gather for a goal-setting session. In early July, four current board members — Mary Loveland, Marlene Merrill, Rich Minder and Scott Morgan — will be leaving the board, to be replaced by Rick Ingram, Shannon Kimball, Randy Masten and Keith Diaz Moore. Remaining on the board will be Mark Bradford, Bob Byers and Vanessa Sanburn. The “new” board will decide whether to pursue potential changes that have been brought up by the current board, including several regarding topics to be discussed Monday night: ● The 15th Street boundary that separates the two high schools.

Washburn football player dies in crash

Gov. to tour towns threatened by flooding

TOPEKA — A Washburn University football player has been killed in a car accident. Washburn football coach Craig Schurig said on the university’s website Saturday that 18-year-old Jermon Watson, of St. Louis, Mo., has died of injuries from the one-car accident Friday. The accident occurred in the Kansas City area. Watson was a defensive end/linebacker who played high school football at Rockwood Summit High School in the St. Louis area. Schurig said he was very sad about the loss and that Watson was an “outstanding young player who did great in the classroom.”

TOPEKA — Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback is scheduled to tour areas in northeast Kansas threatened by flooding from the Missouri River. The governor’s office said he and Maj. Gen. Lee Tafanelli, Kansas Adju- Brownback tant General, will visit Atchison and Doniphan Counties on Monday afternoon. They are scheduled to meet with local leaders, emergency responders and residents in Atchison and Elwood to discuss how they’re preparing for potential flooding.

held in a different part of the Flint Hills each year. Various activities take place during the day, and the Kansas City Symphony plays a concert in the evening. The location changes to showcase different parts of the Flint Hills. This year’s event was held in the Fix Pasture near Volland, on land shared among three families. “This is my first time being here,” said Lizzie Najim, a junior at Kansas University from Wichita. “I really like it so far. The weather’s beautiful. It’s a lot more than just a symphony.” Activities during the day included horse-drawn covered wagon rides, nature walks, presentations on Kansas history, an instrument “petting zoo” and events in the neighboring towns of Alta Vista, Paxico and Alma.

Dedicated volunteers Cole, a native of Olpe, is in his first year as site manager. He recently moved back to Kansas from Arizona. “I considered Hillsboro, but I didn’t know if I could go from Phoenix to Strong City just cold turkey,” he said. “So I’m trying to go with Manhattan and maybe wean myself.” Cole said he has a great


remains an appropriate way to determine enrollment at the two schools, sending students who live north of 15th Street/Bob Billings Parkway to Free State and those who reside south to Lawrence High. Minder, board president, has discussed the option of giving all students a choice of where to attend, raising the possibility of schools offering different programs. ● Feeder schools. Currently, students are sent to particular schools based on where they live. Under feeder schools, all students attending a particular elementary school, for example, would then go to a specific middle school and, from there, to a


1,000 pounds of food a year. Lehrman also raises chickens in the garden, located at 2409 Brookside Drive. Lehrman said gardening can reduce the amount of gasoline used to transport food and is an affordable way to eat organically. She added that homegrown food has another advantage. “You will never eat better than what you pick straight out of your own yard,” she said. For those wishing to start gardening, Lehrman suggested renting a plot at a community garden. Start small and pick a few vegetables you enjoy eating, she advised, and never be afraid to ask for help.

support team for Symphony in the Flint Hills. “We’ve got all these volunteers, people that just come out here with a sheer desire to just help,” he said. “It’s because they share the same passion for the Flint Hills as we do.” Two such volunteers are Joanne Bergman and Mary Ellen Kriegh, sisters from Lawrence in their fourth year of volunteering at Symphony in the Flint Hills. “It’s our ‘sis’ getaway,” Kriegh said with a laugh. “No husbands, no kids.” Bergman runs an upholstery business in Lawrence. “The symphony is fantastic,” she said. “I just love the Flint Hills. It’s a beautiful place.” Kriegh said the awe of the Flint Hills is what’s brought her back for four years. “Everyone’s happy. It’s a very happy, fun event,” she said. “We just feel real lucky we get to do this.”

Spotlight on Flint Hills Larry Thierer, who owns one of the pieces of property on which the concert was held, spent most of Friday assisting with preparations for the event. He said he was amazed people come out for such an event. “You want my honest opinion? I think it’s a lot of crazy idiots!” he said. “’Course, I’m outside almost all day, so no

particular high school. No longer would there be “splits” as students move up on school levels. ● Boundaries for elementary schools. The number of elementary schools is shrinking — the board just closed Wakarusa Valley School, and another two or three are envisioned to be “consolidated” during the next two to three years. Such moves would prompt changes in boundaries; the question would be how those should be handled. Monday’s meeting begins at 7 p.m. at district headquarters, 110 McDonald Drive. Among other items on the agenda: ● Approve an employment contract for Doll, extending his current two-year contract for another year, making it effective for 2011-13. Doll would be paid $153,011, equal to his current level.

big deal being outside in the sunshine. I definitely can’t see driving and walking out half a mile into a pasture for it — that’s ridiculous as far as I’m concerned. But I guess it takes all kinds to make the world go ’round.” Volunteers Gary and Joann Pottorff from Wichita have come to all six Symphony in the Flint Hills events. Gary is a retired veterinarian, and Joanne is a Kansas state representative for the 83rd district. “I just enjoy the Flint Hills,” Gary said as he drove the truck that shuttled volunteers between the check-in tent and concert site. “I just like being out in the country.” Betty Dunhaupt of Topeka volunteered at the first Symphony in the Flint Hills event in 2006. This is her first time back since then. “I love the Flint Hills,” she said. “This is such an ideal place because people who’d never come to the Flint Hills come see it. We’ve got that Kansas pride.” Cole said Symphony in the Flint Hills is trying to be more than just an annual event. “Our goal is to really bring the spotlight to the Flint Hills,” Cole said, “and try to organize nonintrusive events where people can come in and enjoy them and develop an appreciation for them like we have, and then leave with a limited footprint.”

of the KU program was a clear violation of dealer tag law. The law allows the owner of a dealership and sales personnel to use the plates on cars that they drive on a regular basis. But the law does not allow the plates to be used on cars regularly driven by people outside of the dealership. “Our director of vehicles was pretty emphatic that there is not a gray area here,” said Jeannine Koranda, a spokeswoman with the department. Koranda declined to release the names of the dealerships the department contacted about the matter. She said the department was not planning to assess any fines against the dealerships because the state is confident that the dealers will now start complying with the law. Koranda did not have an estimate of how many vehicles may have been improperly tagged or for how long. The Journal-World made a Kansas Open Records request to Kansas Athletics this week seeking more details about the number of cars that have run dealer tags on them in 2010. But the request was unable to be filled because the department had not located records showing the requested information about the tags. Judith Pottorff, corporate counsel for Kansas Athletics Inc., did confirm that the department currently has 75 vehicles in the courtesy car program, called The Wheel Club. She said none of the cars currently has a Kansas dealer plate on it, although some Missouri dealerships continue to use the dealer license plates. Pottorff said


will be. We used median home values as determined by the U.S. Census Bureau’s American Community Survey. (For you data geeks, we used the fiveyear estimates that were gathered from 2005 to 2009. They’re the most recent numbers available and also are considered the most reliable because they use the largest sample size.) Lawrence had the fifth highest median home values. 1. Overland Park: $220,400 2. Lenexa: $214,200 3. Shawnee: $196,100 4. Olathe: $190,300 5. Lawrence: $168,100 6. Manhattan: $155,200 7. Wichita: $108,100 8. Salina: $104,500 9. Kansas City: $93,100 10. Topeka: $91,300 11. Hutchinson: $84,900

Sales taxes When Lawrence voters approved a trio of sales tax increases in 2008, the city’s total sales tax rate rose to become the fourth highest of the 11 large cities. (Note: These rates don’t include special taxing districts some cities allow. For instance, Kansas City has 11 special taxing districts, which allow up to 10.02 percent in sales tax to be charged in some areas. Lawrence has two special taxing districts that charge 9.85 percent) 1. Wichita: 7.3 percent 2. Hutchinson: 8.05 percent 3. Salina: 8.2 percent 4. Manhattan: 8.55 percent 5. Overland Park: 8.65 percent 6. Olathe: 8.65 percent 7. Shawnee: 8.775 percent 8. Lawrence: 8.85 percent 9. Lenexa: 8.9 percent 10. Kansas City: 8.93 percent 11. Topeka: 8.95 percent Median wages Taxes are kind of relative. A tax bill of $500 isn’t nearly as painful to someone who makes $100,000 a year as it is to someone who makes $20,000 a year. Again, we used the American Community Survey to find median wages for workers in each city. We know that some wage figures for university towns end up looking really low because of the number of students who either don’t work or get paid very little to work. So we used a number that measures the median average annual wage for a male, fulltime, year-round worker. That’s our best effort to factor out the student effect. (We used the male number

LAWRENCE she could not speculate on how many of the cars prior to the state’s order ran with Kansas dealer tags.

Providing vehicles Gary Bennett, general manager of Laird Noller Automotive in Lawrence, said his dealership provides the athletic department with three vehicles for the program. He said two of the vehicles always have been tagged with standard license plates that required payment of property taxes and fees. But he said one vehicle that was changed out every 3,000 to 5,000 miles did run a dealer tag. He said he thought the limited use of the vehicle allowed for the dealer tag, but he said he understands the state’s position. “We don’t have a problem with it,” Bennett said. “We’ll do whatever the state wants us to do.” According to information on the athletic department’s website, it’s the responsibility of the dealer to register the car that is donated for athletic department use. The car remains in the dealer’s ownership. A representative with Lawrence-based Crown Automotive also confirmed that it provided vehicles for The KU Wheel Club program. But he said dealer tags were not used, although it was unclear whether he was referring to current cars in the program or whether they had never been used in the past. The representative declined to comment further. Without knowing how many vehicles have been tagged with dealer plates — or for how many years — Gilchrist said it was difficult to estimate how many tax dollars the county has lost. But, as an example, a 2010 Lincoln Navigator — a type of vehicle known to have been driven by KU coaches — instead of the female because the margin of error was lower for the male data. For some reason, the Census doesn’t average the two together for us.) Lawrence was right in the middle of the pack when it comes to full-time wages. 1. Overland Park: $63,675 2. Lenexa: $57,584 3. Olathe: $57,366 4. Shawnee: $55,530 5. Wichita: $43,996 6. Lawrence: $40,572 7. Topeka: $40,260 8. Hutchinson: $38,647 9. Salina: $37,589 10. Manhattan: $36,416 11. Kansas City: $36,224

Totaling it up Here’s what we did to try to make sense of this. We figured how much a person who lives in an average-priced home would pay in property taxes in each city. Then we assumed that person would spend $5,200 a year on groceries (don’t get hung up on the number — we just needed something to compare), and we figured the sales tax on those purchases for each community. Lawrence has the fifth-highest tax bill. 1. Wichita: $1,498 property, $379 sales = $1,877 total 2. Salina: $1,479, property, $426 sales = $1,905 total 3. Topeka: $1,547 property, $465 sales = $2,012 total 4. Hutchinson: $1,657 property, $418 sales = $2,075 total 5. Kansas City: $1,840 property, $464 sales = $2,304 total 6. Manhattan: $2,276 property, $444 sales = $2,720 total 7. Lawrence: $2,385 property, $460 sales = $2,845 total 8. Shawnee: $2,845 property, $456 sales = $3,301 total 9. Olathe: $2,868 property,

L AWRENCE J OURNAL -WORLD would generate about $985 in registration fees and property taxes for a single year. “For us, this really just comes down to the county’s position of treating all taxpayers the same,” Gilchrist said.

New or used? The dealer tag issue also has other implications. Koranda, with the state, confirmed that vehicles that have been tagged with a dealer’s plate can still be sold as new vehicles rather than used vehicles. Once a standard tag has been placed on a car, it can never be sold as new. Attempts to reach department spokesman Jim Marchiony for comment about the issue weren’t successful. Previously, he has said The Wheel Club program was an appropriate way for the athletic department to help attract and retain quality employees. It appears the program has grown in size since the Journal-World last reported on it in 2004. Today the program has 75 cars. Then, it had about 65. Athletic department employees are allowed to drive the vehicles for personal use in the “immediate Kansas area,” according to the department’s website. The use of the vehicle is counted as an employee benefit and the employee pays tax on the benefit, Pottorff said. Dealerships that participate in the program are given points in the athletic department’s priority point system related to tickets. Dealers also qualify to purchase two men’s basketball tickets per car and may receive complimentary tickets to football, women’s basketball and other athletic events, according to the department’s website.

Relativity test As we mentioned before, taxes are relative. So we took the totals from above and compared them with the average wage totals for each city. Then we expressed the result as a percent. The lower the percentage, the less tax burden a person has. This is where Lawrence started to fall below average. (Note: Don’t make too much of the actual percentages. They are highly dependent on the assumption that the average person only spends $5,200 on taxable sales. That’s likely low. What’s meaningful, we hope, is how the communities rank compared with one another.) 1. Wichita: 4.2 percent 2. Topeka: 4.9 percent 3. Salina: 5.0 percent 4. Overland Park: 5.2 percent 5.

Police Camp offers kids chance to see more than ‘just a badge’ By Chris Hong

ONLINE: See the video at

In 2002, Ebo Browne was a camper at the Lawrence Police Camp. Nine summers later, he returned to the camp and led activities with his Kansas University track teammates. Browne, a senior at KU and Free State High School graduate, is a member of KU’s Student-Athlete Advisory Committee, a group dedicated to community service. The group recently won the spring 2011 Division 1 SAAC Award of Excellence. “We’re always training so hard and working so hard in school, it’s kind of fun to just sit back and relax with the kids for a day,� Browne said. The camp started 13 years ago to facilitate positive inter-


It’s really rewarding to see the kids have so much fun and having so much fun with the officers themselves and being able to see them as a person and not just a badge.� — Ryan Halsted, Free State’s school resource officer with the Lawrence Police Department actions between youths and law enforcement. “A lot of times police don’t get positive interactions as well as we’d like,� said Ryan Halsted, Free State’s school resource officer with the Lawrence Police Department. During the two-and-a-halfday camp, officers demonstrated techniques and tac-

tics, such as evidence collection. They also discussed alcohol and drug abuse and the importance of physical fitness. The camp wrapped up Saturday with a game of “Pirate Ball� with members of the KU track team. Lauren Maceli, 10, said the game was her favorite part of the camp. Lauren said she plans to attend next year. Fifty-three children, ages 8-13, attended this year’s camp. The camp concluded with a graduation ceremony and pizza party. “It’s really rewarding to see the kids have so much fun and having so much fun with the officers themselves and being able to see them as a person and not just a badge,� Halsted said. – Reporting intern Chris Hong may be reached at 832-6354.

3 appointed to replace Kansas Parole Board TOPEKA — The Kansas corrections secretary has appointed three agency employees to handle the duties of the Kansas Parole Board. The Topeka Capital-Journal reported that Secretary Ray Roberts will handle creation of the in-house Prison Review Board at the Kansas Department of Corrections to replace the Kansas Parole Board. The board is being eliminated July 1. The three review board members Roberts named are Dave Riggin, the corrections department’s inmate classification director, who will serve as chairman; Jonathan Ogletree, coordinator of cognitive behavioral services at Lansing Correctional Facility; and Kathleen Graves, the agency’s parole services manager. The decision raised concern among lawmakers and families of crime victims, who were skeptical about KDOC controlling day-to-day incarceration decisions of inmates and holding power to determine when those individuals were released on parole.

BOB DOLE, LEFT, and his wife, Elizabeth, center, also a former U.S. Senator, visit with his former classmate Lawrence Young, of Russell, on Friday at the Dole-Specter Conference Center in Russell.

Ex-Sen. Bob Dole talks politics on Russell visit RUSSELL (AP) — Former Sen. Bob Dole said during a visit to his Kansas hometown that Americans need to be confident in their president. “We’re due for another (Dwight) Eisenhower,� Dole told reporters Friday in Russell, where he was attending the 2011 Prairiesta celebration. The event recognizing Russell County’s 140th anniversary continues through Sunday. The Salina Journal reported the Republican, who has run unsuccessfully for vice president and president, said he would like to see U.S. Army Gen. David Petraeus on the GOP presidential ticket in 2012. “It’s time for somebody that the American people can have conf idence in,� the World War II veteran Dole said to reporters at the DoleSpecter Conference Center. He said President Barack Obama got “a bit of a bounce� in his public approval when Osama bin Laden was killed this spring. But Dole also criticized the president. “As long as the teleprompter is working, he’ll be OK,� Dole said. The Kansas native admits he’s made mistakes during his career, but said he cherishes the time he got to spend working with the people of his home state. He said he misses some aspects of politics. “I miss being in the eye of the storm, trying to work out compromises and bringing people together,� he said. “It

Road work planned this week Lawrence ● City contractors Monday will begin a complete reconstruction of the westbound lanes of Bob Billings Parkway from Kasold to Crestline Drive. Traffic will be reduced to one lane in each direction with delays expected. The project is expected to be completed by Aug. 12. ● The Utilities Department will close 17th Street between Kentucky and Tennessee streets Monday for a service installation. No detours will be posted but alternate routes through the area are available. ● City crews continue making repairs to concrete curbs and street pavement throughout downtown. The project will extend from Sixth to North Park streets and from Vermont to New Hampshire streets. Traffic will generally be maintained in both directions, but there will be parking limitations and single-lane effects. The work is expected to be completed by mid-August. ● Crews are 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 began last week with plans to widen the eastbound lanes on Sixth Street. The project is expected to last three to five weeks in total. ● 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 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 North Second and Locust streets. Signs will be 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 and crack sealing 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, The project is scheduled for completion in late July.

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/North 1000 Road will be closed to traffic between U.S. Highway 59 and East 1400 Road, which is about 1 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/East 1500 Road and 31st Street. The work will last until mid- to late July.

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 0.5 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 75. 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 finished 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.

BACKGROUND The Sixth and Iowa streets intersection currently does not have a dedicated left-turn lane, and traffic frequently backs up at the intersection as a result. The project is expected to cost about $700,000, and the city is asking for $350,000 in state funding. The 23rd and Iowa intersection has the highest traffic counts of any

dogs. The center receives an average of 900 to 1,100 service calls each day, or roughly 300 to 350 calls per eighthour shift. Ruf said patience among dispatchers is a necessary and usually acquired skill. “What people sometimes don’t understand is that we might be asking these questions, but people are already on the way,” Ruf said of emergency calls. “There’s that customer service and that empathy, but at the same time we’re trying to do a job. There’s a method to the madness.” The madness includes manning the communications center 24 hours each day, every day of the week. In Douglas County, that happens in three shifts, with one covering the morning and early afternoon, one for the


administrator there are a lot of opportunities around the country. You pretty much build your own career.

What brought you to Lawrence? Ruf: To be honest, I get bored occasionally. Well not bored, but I look for opportunities. I was looking for my own emergency communication center and all things being equal, I had come out here a couple times and really liked the area. On a personal level, you have a major university here in KU. I have a master’s in public administration, but I always wanted to pursue my doctorate or

evening and one for the overnight hours. Even with 19 dispatchers and three shift supervisors, Ruf said, the staff may not be big enough at times. “We’re probably understaffed,” Ruf said. “To what degree or by how many I don’t know, but a lot of that comes to how you set your schedules up.” But county dispatchers aren’t alone in their work. On days and nights when things get hectic, public safety employees with Kansas University lend a helping hand. The symbiotic relationship lets county, city and university law enforcement work more effectively. Technology helps the center operate smoothly, too. A recent upgrade to the call system has provided dis-

patchers with a new touchscreen setup that makes handling calls easier and faster. Each dispatcher has a station with as many as five monitors, all set to help complete or keep track of important information. There’s even a computer that lets dispatchers know which hospitals have beds available in the area. Ruf said he considers the communications center a support service. The center provides dispatch support to 23 area agencies in Douglas County, including agencies in Lawrence, Eudora, Lecompton and Baldwin City. With the help of personnel and sufficient funding, Ruf said his goal for the center was clear. “I want it to be one of the best, top-notch professional agencies of its type in the state,” he said. “If not the region and the country.”

Ph.D. and they have both those programs here. I’m motivated more by opportunities than by money, and being single makes it a lot easier to make those decisions.

Do you have to familiarize yourself with the community and visually bind yourself to what happens on the radio? Ruf: I’ve always taken that approach because I have to understand both sides. It helps. It’s important that we’re not just stuck in a room, that we’re accessible out there.

What are your job responsibilities? Ruf: I oversee the day-today operations of this communication center: the administrative duties, budget, personnel, the communications infrastructure. It will all be evaluated based on need and, of course, money. It’s only my sixth day so it’s just getting my feet wet. I think I’m up to my chest as far as things getting wet. My role right now is to come in and do a top to bottom assessment and process review of everything.

— Reporter Joe Preiner can be reached at 832-6314.

Where do you want this communication center to go? Ruf: I want it to be one of the best, top-notch professional facilities of its type in the state, if not the region and the country and that takes time. It takes people. It takes money. So there’s going to be some challenges ahead. — Reporter Joe Preiner can be reached at 832-6314.


Emails show Palin as engaged, driven By Becky Bohrer Associated Press Writer

J U N E A U , A L A S K A — There are no bombshells, no “gotcha” moments. The emails of Sarah Palin — more than 24,000 pages of them released Friday by the state of Alaska from her f i rs t two years as governor — paint a pict u re o f a n image-conscious, driven Palin leader, closely involved with the day-today duties of running the state and riding herd on the s i g n a t u re i ss u e s o f h e r administration. She angled for a vice presidential nomination months before John McCain picked her, but hesitated to endorse him until she got an explanation about “pro-environmental stands he’s taking that could hurt Alaska.” The messages give a behind-the-scenes look at a politician who burst onto the national stage after serving as Wasilla mayor and less than two years as Alaska governor. They show a woman striving to balance work and home, fiercely protective of her family and highly sensitive to media coverage. She expressed a sometimes mothering side with aides but was quick to demand answers or accountability. They seem to depict a more moderate Palin who worked to f ind a state response to global warming — she has since dismissed studies supporting climate change — and gave props to then-Sen. Barack Obama for his support of a natural gas

pipeline in Alaska. The records, comprising more than 13,400 emails, shed new light on Palin’s rise from little-known governor to national political sensation. The emails end in September 2008, shortly after her selection to be McCain’s running mate. It was then that citizens and news organizations first requested the records. Three years later, Palin is a best-selling author, reality TV star, sought-after speaker and kingmaker, successfully supporting dozens of candidates in last year’s elections. Her recent bus tour of the Northeast as well as an authorized documentary about her time as governor, have fueled speculation that Palin will run for president, but the Republican says she hasn’t yet decided. In Anchorage, people watched the release of the

emails with interest, some blaming the media for paying too much attention to the outdated records. “I personally think they’re afraid of her,” said Richard Giese, who sold flowers at the Anchorage Farmer’s Market on Saturday. “They’re digging up a lot of stuff, some of it true. I won’t deny that. But I think they are afraid of her for the election.” Gail Sieberts, who was shopping at the market, called it a distraction. “We’re glad she’s not here anymore,” she said. “Our state is running better, and we don’t need all the drama.” While much of the country was taken by surprise when Palin became the Republican vice presidential candidate, her emails suggest that she was angling for the slot for months and that she may have been courted even earlier.

Dubious incentive Why should the city use public tax incentives to help real estate investors recoup their losses?


he use of public incentives to attract retail businesses and restaurants is a tricky business, as once again illustrated by the pending request for a property tax break for a project that would bring an Olive Garden restaurant to the corner of 27th and Iowa streets. The owners of that property want to receive a property tax rebate under the Neighborhood Revitalization Act. The rebate would represent the difference in the property taxes being collected on the property now and what would normally be collected on the higher value of the improved property. The owners could use the tax rebates to offset their development costs. Although most of the public attention has been focused on the relative merits of bringing an Olive Garden to Lawrence, the primary beneficiary of the request is not Olive Garden but the owners of the property. The owners say Olive Garden won’t be offered a lease rate that’s lower than the local market rate. So, even if Olive Garden will provide added competition for local restaurants, it would do so on a relatively equal footing. Who really gains from this proposal are the property owners. In a letter to the city, the ownership group acknowledges that it bought the property at “the height of the real estate market.” Because of the price they paid for the property, the owners would have to charge any tenant a lease rate higher than the current market rate in order to break even on their investment. However, because it would be difficult to lease the property at the higher rate, the owners want to use the property tax break to make up the difference. The Neighborhood Revitalization Act was intended to provide incentives for projects that either provide a unique benefit to the city or redevelop a particularly blighted property. Olive Garden is hardly a unique development, and although the property in question has been vacant for some time, it is a good commercial location. The primary impetus for this request appears to be to allow some local real estate investors to break even on a piece of property that now isn’t worth what they paid for it. That’s a pretty dubious justification for a public tax incentive. Virtually every business and homeowner in Lawrence has seen the value of his or her property decline in the last few years. Who’s going to bail them out? The owners of the 27th and Iowa property surely aren’t the only people who made a bad business decision and paid too much for a piece of land. Why should the city, county and school district forfeit precious tax revenue to help them recoup their investment? If Olive Garden thinks Lawrence provides a favorable market for one of its restaurants, there’s a pretty good chance it will come here with or without the property tax break the city is being asked to consider. Unless the owners of the 27th and Iowa property can come up with some reason that having an Olive Garden at that particular location is so important to the city that it justifies a public financial incentive, city commissioners should reject their request.

Al-Qaida struggling without Osama L O N D O N — Abdullah Anas, a jovial, bearded onetime Algerian imam, was a close colleague of Osama bin Laden in the jihad against the Soviets in Afghanistan. He considered bin Laden a friend, but broke with him over the slaughter of innocents on 9/11. Today, Anas thinks al-Qaida’s grip on the minds of radical Muslim youth is finally ending. “I think the philosophy of alQaida is failing now,” Anas says. He thinks no one in al-Qaida can replicate the role played by bin Laden, whose charisma helped give his grim message global appeal. Indeed, Anas, and other experts at a London conference on terrorism sponsored by the Thomson Reuters news agency, painted a picture of a terrorist group struggling to find its footing after its leader’s death. It is also deeply challenged by the nonviolent Arab rebellions in Egypt and Tunisia, which disdained alQaida’s worship of suicide bombs. No one discounts al-Qaida’s continuing capacity, or that of its regional affiliates, to inspire mayhem in the West, the Mideast — and in nuclear-armed Pakistan. But all agreed the group was no longer capable of spectacular attacks like those of 9/11, due to the deaths of key leaders and the awakening of the world to the terrorist threat. The group now has to turn to discontented individuals, like the would-be Times Square bomber. But the message of violent jihad that bin Laden promoted so powerfully has lost much of its luster. Arab attitudes toward al-

But the message of “violent jihad that bin

Laden promoted so powerfully has lost much of its luster.”

Qaida’s violence were already shifting before the killing of bin Laden (as borne out by polls). The organization was stained by bombings of civilians in Iraq, Jordan and Pakistan. The Arab Spring has changed attitudes even more dramatically. “What has happened in the Arab world,” says Anas, “is completely different from (the methods) al-Qaida tried to spread.” Equally important, bin Laden’s demise creates a leadership crisis in al-Qaida. “No one can be equal to him for his charisma, his history,” says his old friend Anas. “Osama brought credibility from (his role in) the war against the Soviets.” Noman Benotman, former head of a Libyan militant group, who also rejected al-Qaida after 9/11, says none of the likely successors have the qualities that enabled him to build a global

organization. The leading contenders to replace bin Laden are Egyptians, including al-Qaida’s No. 2, Ayman al-Zawahiri. Yet the choice of an Egyptian would alienate the crucial Gulf Arab base of al-Qaida, says Benotman, especially those religious Saudis who support global jihad. Zawahiri’s intolerant personality, Benotman adds, would not attract a wide following. “He is the opposite of Osama bin Laden, who was very tolerant (of followers) and never punished people.” In this new era, Zawahiri, or any new leader, “needs to come up with a political strategy beyond giving people a chance to die,” says the former Libyan jihadi. Zawahiri realizes that, and last week he made the latest of several statements endorsing the Arab revolutions. He wants to establish a base in Egypt, believing he can build on inevitable discontent when the post-revolutionary government fails to meet popular hopes. But the secular heroes of the Egyptian revolt totally reject alQaida, as does the Muslim Brotherhood, the best-organized Islamist force in Egypt, but one that espouses nonviolence. One can already see al-Qaida fumbling to find a new modus operandi. Example: In Yemen, one group of local al-Qaida members has reportedly changed its name to Ansar al-Sharia (“Supporters of Islamic Law,” a title hard for locals to disagree with). They have started delivering services, and hoisted a white flag, rather than al-Qaida’s black flag,

apparently to avoid being linked with suicide bombers. Perhaps they recognize that the region has tired of the breed of young jihadis bin Laden fostered who have no interest in creating a better state, but who want only to be martyred. We are entering a new era where alQaida’s cult of death will have to compete for alienated young Muslim minds against more positive models of change. Yet there is a postscript to this hopeful message. One of the main stages for continued alQaida carnage is likely to be Pakistan, where bin Laden was killed. Virulent Pakistani Taliban groups allied with al-Qaida and hoping for Afghanistan’s collapse will keep trying to undermine the Pakistani military and state to get hold of its nukes. So it was ironic to hear the former militant Abdullah Anas make a plea for NATO troops not to leave Afghanistan before Afghan leaders can reach a political settlement with the Taliban. He is now facilitating Afghan mediation efforts. He says, “I won’t be happy to see NATO leave before we solve the political problem.” I’ve been skeptical about odds for Afghan political talks, but they could put a final nail in alQaida’s coffin. Talking to bin Laden’s former friend, one could imagine a new era where suicide bombers no longer wreak havoc, an era where young Arab and South Asian Muslims have reason for hope. — Trudy Rubin is a columnist for the Philadelphia Inquirer.



During the “miscellaneous comments” portion of a recent Lawrence YEARS City Commission AGO meeting, CommisIN 1986 sioner Ernest Angino suggested that the city consider banning smoking in city-owned buildings. Mike Amyx, the only commissioner who smoked, smiled as he said that he didn’t think the city needed to consider such an ordinance. However, Mayor Sandy Praeger immediately voiced her approval of the idea, while Commissioner Howard Hill said that if it could be made enforceable, he would consider supporting it.


Public men behaving badly Let’s roll out the list. It includes, in no particular order of sluttishness: Kwame Kilpatrick, Jesse Jackson, James McGreevey, Ted Haggard, Gary Condit, Mark Sanford, John Edwards, Bill Clinton, Newt Gingrich, Rudy Giuliani, Eliot Spitzer, Antonio Villaraigosa, Arnold Schwarzenegger, James West, Larry Craig, David Vitter, John Ensign. And now, Anthony Weiner, Democratic representative from New York. The thing these individuals have in common is as obvious as, well ... the erect penis in Weiner’s underwear in that risque picture he claimed he never tweeted to a young woman and wasn’t even sure was really him, only to confess last week that he was lying on both counts. In case the commonality eludes you: They are all political or social leaders who got caught in sex scandals, having gotten busy, hiked the Appalachian Trail, taken a wide stance, or otherwise behaved inappropriately with women, men, and a prostitute or two to whom they were not married. And they are all men. Can anyone name the last female leader caught in a sex scandal? Me neither. It is not that women are of a higher moral order than men. Studies confirm that women cheat, too. And yet, you never see that fact reflected in a Hillary Clinton or Sarah Palin biting their bottom lip in the glare of TV lights while mak-

being serviced by an intern in the Oval Office. Kwame Kilpatrick thought he could get away with paying $8 million from the city treasury to keep his affair secret. Anthony Weiner thought he could get away with tweeting suggestive photos of himself online. Repeat: online. Yet we depend on men like these to make decisions about our money, our health care, our children. Not to mention war and peace. What faith can we have that men who show such poor judgment in their marriages will show better judgment in other areas? Or might not the thrillseeking, testosterone-fueled alpha male recklessness that makes a public man think he can get away with a private affair not also impair his thinking when debating the debt ceiling or teacher salaries? And we wonder why things don’t get done. No, your humble correspondent does not hate his own gender. There is a place in public life for boldness and risk-taking. But at the same time, as female leaders attempt to shatter the proverbial glass ceiling on bases of fairness and representative government, a case can be made that they are missing the most persuasive argument of all for why we need more women in public life: Men.

Two prisoners who had walked away from the Kansas State PeniYEARS tentiary Farm on AGO the previous weekIN 1971 end had been captured. The two men had ended their spree with the theft of three vehicles, one at knifepoint, and a high-speed chase. One of the two had been serving a life term for murder and additional terms for attempted escape and robbery, while the other was serving a 1- to 10-year term for second-degree robbery.


From the Lawrence Daily Journal-World for June 12, 1911: YEARS “‘I think autos AGO and motor cycles IN 1911 are becoming too addicted to the speed habit,’ declared Mayor S. D. Bishop at last night’s council meeting. ‘I know no reason why a street car should run 35 to 40 miles an hour on streets like Indiana and Henry. I don’t like to hear of a street car’s running into the rear end of a wagon.... An automobile driver ought to observe some common decency towards his fellow men and some day I am going to call their attention to a few things they will not like to hear.”

Sex offender, 79, gets 2 life terms TOPEKA (AP) — A 79-year-old Topeka man has been sentenced to two life prison terms for molesting two young girls. The Topeka Capital-Journal reports Harold Dean Spencer will have to spend at least 25 years in prison before he can be considered for release. Spencer pleaded guilty in 2008 to two counts of aggravated indecent liberties with a child under 14 and was sentenced to three years’ probation. In March the Kansas Supreme Court overturned that sentence, saying the district judge abused his discretion when he departed from mandatory sentencing minimums. On Friday, Shawnee County District Judge Mark Braun denied a request for a lighter sentence and gave Spencer two life sentences, to run concurrently. Braun noted there were two victims, one of whom was molested at least 12 times over a two-year period.

Shorter event kicks off race weekend By Clark Goble Journal-World Sports Writer

Some junior triathletes forced their arms up in the air as they crossed the f inish line of the HyVee IronKids Triathlon on Saturday at Clinton State Park. Others doubled over after breaking through the finishing tape, tired after sprinting through the finishing chute amid cheering and the clatter of cowbells. And for those who finished in

the top five of their age group to qualify for the IronKids National Championship, the physical exhaustion was quickly squelched by their excitement. Official results were not available at press time, but several Lawrence athletes qualified for the national championship, which will be held Sept. 17 in West Des Moines, Iowa. There were three age divisions: junior (ages 6-8), intermediate (911) and senior (12-15).

The distances increased with each division. Juniors swam 50 yards, biked two miles and ran 500 yards. Intermediates swam 150 yards, biked four miles and ran one mile. Seniors swam 300 yards, biked eight miles and ran two miles. Charlie Newsome, an 11-year-old from Lawrence, didn’t qualify for the national race, but considering he took a nasty spill during the twomile biking portion, his ability to finish the race was impressive.

Newsome’s bike slipped out from underneath him when he was turning a corner. Its chain popped off when it hit the concrete. “My dad and this other guy came over and fixed the chain,” Newsome said. Newsome popped back onto his bike and finished the race with fresh scratches on his arms and shoulders. A member of the Lawrence Please see IRONKIDS, page 3B

All states represented in triathlon today By Clark Goble Journal-World Sports Writer

Athletes from all 50 states have descended on Lawrence for the K-Swiss Ironman 70.3 Kansas at Clinton State Park. Nothing major has changed about today’s event — in its fourth year — but word is spreading about the uniqueness of the event on the Ironman series. “It’s really neat to have all 50 states represented and put

Lawrence on the map for one more thing,” race director Ryan Robinson said. Athletes swim 1.2 miles, bike 56 miles and finish with a 13.1mile run through Clinton State Park. Technically, it’s a half-Ironman event; a true Ironman is a 2.4-mile swim, 112-mile bike ride and 26.2-mile run. Chrissie Wellington, the current women’s world recordholder at the full Ironman distance, will return to race for her third straight title.

“We feel pretty blessed to have her come to Lawrence,” Robinson said. Wellington won last year’s event in a time of 4 hours, 7 minutes, 49 seconds, more than 16 minutes faster than the next woman. “She’s amazing,” Robinson said. “I think Lawrence has really kind of adopted her, and she loves Lawrence.” Chris Lieto, the male champion from last year, will not return this year. The winner


from two years ago — Luke Bell from Australia — will participate. Robinson said he expects 1,600 participants — and 1,000 volunteers — for the race. “Lawrence has been great, and the state park is beautiful, so, yeah, everything is going well,” Robinson said. This year, the race weekend at Clinton State Park kicked off Saturday with the Hy-Vee IronKids Triathlon, a shorter event for athletes ages 6-15.

Royals help Angels end skid ANAHEIM , C ALIF . (AP ) — Erick Aybar opened the scoring with a three-run triple, Bobby Abreu came home with the go-ahead run on reliever Aaron Crow’s second wild pitch of the seventh inning, and the Los Angeles Angels snapped a season-worst six-game losing streak with a 7-5 victory over the Kansas City Royals on Saturday night. Howie Kendrick had three hits, including a pair of RBI singles, and slumping Vernon Wells singled his first three times up after a closed-door meeting with manager Mike Scioscia that also included Abreu and Torii Hunter.

Kaleb Tarczewski, a 7-foot, 220-pound senior-to-be out of St. Mark’s High in Southborough, Mass., completed a two-day, unofficial basketball recruiting visit to Kansas University on Friday. “It was really good, I really like it there,” Tarczewski,’s No. 11-rated player in the Class of 2012, told, noting he has been on KU’s campus four times. “This trip was really for my mom. She hadn’t been there yet and I wanted her to see it,” added Tarczewski, who will visit North Carolina on Monday and Tuesday and Arizona on June 20-21. “Right now those three (schools) are the ones that embody what I’m looking for,” Tarczewski added to ESPN. “It’s not necessarily closed to other schools, but those are the three that I’m looking at right now." In the past, he also has listed UConn, Duke, Kentucky, Indiana, West Virginia, Florida, Georgia Tech, Wake Forest, USC and Boston College. Here’s what has to say about Tarczewski: “He is a true center with great size. He runs the floor extremely well and has good mobility for a 7-footer. He has become an explosive and powerful finisher with both hands around the basket and his good hands allow him to catch tough passes and turn them into baskets. He has a good left shoulder hook with a high release and is gradually developing his right shoulder as well. He is a excellent area rebounder especially on the offensive end and is also a decent on ball shot blocker. “He is also a big man who takes to coaching and has shown great improvement over the course of his career as a result. There may not be another big man that has improved more in the last 18 months than Tarczewski.” On the flip side, ESPN writes, “Defensively, a player of his size and mobility should be able to improve his shot-blocking presence. Tarczewski also has a bit of a temper that can be both a blessing and a curse. When he harnesses it he is dominant, but when it gets the better of him, he can get taken out of the game mentally.” ●

Tiger’s caddie on another golfer’s bag B E T H E S D A , M D . ( A P ) — Tiger Woods isn’t at the U.S. Open this year. But his caddie is. Steve Williams, who has been on the bag for 13 of Woods’ major championships, was working with Adam Scott at Congressional. A USGA official says they were seen together during a practice round Saturday at the course outside of Washington, D.C. Woods withdrew from the U.S. Open on Tuesday because of lingering injuries to his left leg. He has not said how long he will be out.

Scott recently parted with longtime caddie Tony Navarro. While speculation about Woods’ future figures to be rampant next week, Woods’ agent said Williams was only temporarily filling in for the 30-yearScott old Australian. “Adam found out that Tiger wasn’t going to be playing the U.S. Open,” Mark Steinberg said. “He and Stevie

Got a great idea for a new video game. Tentative title: Messin’ With the King. It’s a first-person game where you get to experience what it must feel like to be LeBron James in his first season with the Miami Heat. Not just dunking and rejecting and shooting long threes. Not just hanging with Drake and filming all those silly TV commercials. The whole deal. All the ugly stuff would be in there, too. So grab the controller, slip on the special sensory headband and focus on the flat screen. Take a deep breath, and away we go ... OOF! Here comes a media geek asking about “shrinking” in the fourth quarter. BAM! Here’s another media guy asking if you’re “feeling the pressure” from your long-running quest for that first NBA title. YIKES! Here’s Mavericks forward DeShawn Stevenson, talking smack about how you “checked out” in your eight-point Game 4. No guns in this game. We need that “Teen” rating to increase our sales reach. Just one swing of your massive forearm, and the latest distraction goes flying off the screen. Extra points for headshots, of course. The second level? That would have to be the Room of Rumors, where invisible evildoers hide behind the cloak of anonymity and try to tear you down with lies. Doesn’t matter if the rumor makes any sense. Doesn’t matter if there’s no corroboration or photographic evidence. The rumor still gets picked up by every hit-hungry Internet site you’ve never heard of and foisted upon a jealous public. Soon enough, it’s a trending topic on Twitter, and even the legitimate news agencies are feeling pressure to report it. Not realistic enough for you? Well, consider the latest LeBron rumor. It came out of Houston, where a hiphop DJ at 97.9 The Box went on the air Thursday to share a rumor about an alleged affair involving James’ fiancee, Savannah Brinson, and Wizards forward Rashard Lewis. This host claimed to have “a very reliable source” in Orlando, someone who was “all over the Tiger Woods issue” before it became public. This person mentioned a rumored tryst on South Beach between Brinson and Lewis, a former Magic player. “Word got to him while at the bar,” the host said of his mysterious source. Great. So now we’re passing along third-hand rumors heard on Jell-O Shot Night? The scariest part was that for too many hours the rumor seemed to gain traction. People started connecting dots, cross-referencing the Houston “report” with another on Twitter suggesting James was struggling with “personal issues.” And then James went out for Game 5 and suffered through another two-point fourth quarter in a 112-103 loss. Distracted? Uh, you think? Still want to trade lives with the King? Didn’t think so.

caddie. Phil Williams had caddied only sparingly, but his previous work included a stint for Jack Nicklaus in the 1989 Australian Masters. It was not immediately clear how long Williams would work for Scott, or how long Woods would remain sidelined. He still has the AT&T National, which starts June 30, listed as his next tournament on his website. There remains an outside chance Woods could play at Aronomink if he thought his leg was healthy enough to play the other two majors this year.

Scott, who split with Navarro after The Players Championship, used Mick Doran at Colonial. It will be the second time Scott has worked with someone from the Williams’ family. Ten years ago, he briefly hired Williams’ younger brother, Phil, to be his

Panama stuns U.S. in Gold Cup, 2-1 TAMPA, FLA. — Luis Tejada scored in the 19th minute, and Gabriel Gomez converted a penalty kick later in the first half, helping Panama stun the United States, 2-1, on Saturday night to advance to the quarterfinals of the Gold Cup. The victory was the first for the Panamanians in nine meetings with the Americans, who had never lost a match in the group stage of any Gold Cup, the tournament that determines the champion for North and Central America and the Caribbean. Despite the loss, the U.S. can clinch a spot in the quarterfinals by beating Guadaloupe in its final Group C stage match Tuesday night in Kansas City.

GOLD CUP SOCCER Mexico hopes to replace players

MLB Yankees’ Colon injures thigh NEW YORK — Yankees starter Bartolo Colon left the game against Cleveland on Saturday after he strained his left hamstring covering first base in the seventh inning. Colon only allowed two hits against his former team and struck out six before he appeared to hurt himself while covering the bag on a grounder fielded by first baseman Mark Teixeira. Light, misty rain was falling all afternoon at Yankee Stadium, covering everything in fine droplets, and Colon might have lost traction while running to first. The right-hander came into the day 4-3 with a 3.39 ERA this season.

Marlins’ Ramirez on way back CHICAGO — Mexico is determined to win the

Gold Cup, regardless of how many players it has on its roster. The defending champions were left with 17 players after goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa, defenders Francisco Rodriguez and Edgar Duenas, and midfielders Christian Bermudez and Antonio Naelson “Sinha” were removed from the team Thursday after testing positive for clenbuterol. The Mexican federation has asked to replace the players, but CONCACAF officials say they need more information on the tests before they can make a decision. Mexico is blaming the positive tests, which occurred during a pre-tournament training camp on the outskirts of Mexico City, on contaminated meat. Tour de France champion Alberto Contador also has blamed contaminated beef for his positive test for clenbuterol last July.

MIAMI — Hanley Ramirez could return the Florida Marlins when he’s eligible to come off the disabled list Tuesday. Ramirez is scheduled to make his second rehab start for Class A Jupiter on Saturday night. Out with a back strain since May 30, the All-Star shortstop went 2-for-3 with a walk, an RBI and a run scored as the designated hitter for Jupiter on Friday night. Marlins manager Edwin Rodriguez said Saturday Ramirez was fine physically, but he did not run at 100 percent. Ramirez hit off a tee Wednesday, his first activity since being injured. He was scheduled to play nine innings at shortstop in the Hammerheads’ game at Port St. Lucie on Saturday.

It’s been quite a reversal for Busch a month after he launched into a foul-mouthed tirade against his race team at Richmond. He made it it two straight poles on Saturday, turning a fast lap of 171.579 mph at Pocono Raceway. Busch damaged his No. 22 Dodge in Friday’s practice and was forced to a backup car. He also spun at practice last week — a sort of bad luckgood luck habit. He wound up first last week at Kansas Speedway, then topped Jeff Gordon in one of the final qualifying runs at Pocono.

Kansas New Big 12 coaches relay sets have connections record By Stephen Hawkins

Associated Press Basketball Writer

Before they became new Big 12 head basketball coaches, Missouri’s Frank Haith and Texas A&M’s Billy Kennedy had already known each other nearly two decades. Their friendship goes back to when Haith became a Texas A&M assistant in the early 1990s. They met after Kennedy had already been an Aggies assistant during a stretch of 12 seasons when he worked at eight different schools. Later, after head-coaching stops at Centenary and Southeastern Louisiana, Kennedy spent the 2005-06 season as an assistant to Haith at Miami. “I wanted someone that I trusted and had a lot of respect for,” Haith said Thursday during a conference call with Big 12 coaches. “Billy wanted another challenge,

DES MOINES, IOWA — Kansas University’s 1,600 relay team of Kendra Bradley, Shayla Wilson, Denesha Morris and Diamond Dixon placed eighth in a school-record clocking of 3:33.0 at Saturday’s NCAA Outdoor Championships. KU junior Rebeka Stowe placed seventh in the 3,000 steeplechase in 10:07.73. Junior Donny Wasinger was 14th in the 1,500 in 3:55.63. He led the race for two laps. The KU men earned 14 points and finished 18th overall. The women collected 13 points to finish 23rd. The Jayhawks will send several athletes to Eugene, Ore., in two weeks for the USA Senior and Junior Championships June 22-25.

and by coming over to work with us at Miami, I thought he had a chance to get a better job or opportunity, and it did work out for him that way. He’s a great man, and also a great coach.” Haith, who is also a former Texas assistant, and Kennedy are now going to be coaching against each other in the same league. They account for half of the new coaches in the Big 12, a conference reduced to 10 teams after the departures of Nebraska and Colorado. The other newcomers are Oklahoma’s Lon Kruger and Texas Tech’s Billy Gillispie, who both had previous connections to the league. Kruger is a former Kansas State coach, assistant and player. Gillispie is returning to the Big 12 after four years away. He was Texas A&M’s coach from 2004-07.

Selby may not be the lock I thought he was to go to New York.” In fact, Ford wrote that he wouldn’t be surprised if New York takes KU’s Markieff Morris. Selby, by the way, had to sit out his Washington Wizards workout last week because of a quad injury. It’s been reported that the Knicks’ Carmelo Anthony, who is a friend/mentor of Selby, is pushing for the team to take the ex-Jayhawk combo guard.

Conway, Ark., was the fastest 11-year-old. He started doing triathlons about three years ago, starting with one in his hometown. His favorite part of the race is the biking portion, made easier when he received a new time-trial bike for Christmas. “It’s just fun now,” Pendergraft said. This was Pendergraft’s first

Morris lauds KU: Former KU forward Marcus Morris, who is expected to be a lottery pick in the draft, praised KU’s coaches in an interview with the Charlotte Observer after a workout with the Bobcats last week. “They really teach you the game, and I was one of those system-type kids who stayed there and really got to know the game,” Morris said. “I ask a lot of questions because I want to be a great player at the end of the day. Having guys like Danny Manning (big man coach) and coach (Bill) Self there means really teaching you the game.” ●

‘Pop’ staying put: San Antonio Spurs coach Gregg Popovich, who worked one year for Larry Brown at KU, tells San Antonio’s WOAI-TV

IronKids event, but if he and his family decide to attend the national championship, it won’t be his last. The race was the first of the 14-event HyVee IronKids Midwest Series. It was also the first IronKids event held in Lawrence. Many participants’ parents are competing in the Ironman 70.3 Kansas, which starts at 6:30 this morning.

he may want to keep coaching a few more years, even after Tim Duncan retires. He has been the Spurs’ coach for 15 seasons. “You do it as long as you go to training camp and the juices are flowing and you get excited about getting it started. And I know I’m like that because I was bouncing off the walls for weeks,” said Popovich, 62. “So, I’m pretty far away from wanting to sit back and have a pinot noir and watch a Robert Mitchum movie. I’m going to do it until the juice is gone, until there’s no juice. For right now. I love it. I’ll never have it better than this, so I’m going to enjoy it while it’s here.” Former KU assistant coach R.C. Buford is general manager of the Spurs and a good friend of KU’s Self.

Royals righty allowed in his last four appearances. Mike Moustakas tried to score on a safety squeeze by Chris Getz moments later, and was cut down at the plate by first baseman Kendrick’s throw to Jeff Mathis. Alcides Escobar walked, loading the bases, but Thompson came back to strike out Alex Gordon. Moustakas, the second overall pick in the 2007 draft and one of nine rookies on the Royals’ roster, hit his first majorleague home run in his sixth plate appearance — a solo shot that landed in the second row above the 18-foot wall in rightcenter with two outs in the fourth inning and trimmed the Angels’ lead to 5-3. Cabrera narrowed the gap to 5-4 in the fifth with an RBI single. Wells led off the Angels’ four-run second against Felipe Paulino with a single before Los Angeles loaded the bases with none out. Aybar then smacked a 1-2 pitch inside first base and down the line to clear the bases, and Maicer Izturis drove him in with a sacrifice fly. Two of the runs were unearned, the result of a fielding error by Getz on a routine grounder to second by Callaspo.

LOS ANGELES ANGELS CATCHER JEFF MATHIS (TOP) LOOKS to make another play after tagging out Kansas City’s Melky Cabrera on Saturday in Anaheim, Calif. The Royals got two back in the third, when Getz scored on a passed ball by Mathis and Escobar came home on Gordon’s groundout. But the Angels tacked on another unearned run in the bottom half, after Wells singled again and got to second on an errant pickoff throw by Paulino — the first error by any Royals pitcher since Jeremy Jeffress’ wild pickoff throw on April 18 against Cleveland. Kendrick drove in Wells from third with an infield hit. ●

Note: The Angels came within one game of tying a dubious franchise record for consecutive games scoring three runs or fewer, which was set in September 1981.

Brewers 5, Cardinals 3 MILWAUKEE — Rickie Weeks hit a go-ahead, two-run homer, and Zack Greinke outpitched fellow Cy Young Award winner Chris Carpenter to lift Milwaukee over St. Louis. The surging Brewers (3728) pulled within a half-game of St. Louis for the NL Central lead and moved nine games over .500 for the first time in more than two years.

Braves 6, Astros 3, 10 innings HOUSTON — Brian McCann hit a three-run homer in the 10th inning, lifting Atlanta over Houston for its fifth straight victory. McCann’s shot to right field off Brandon Lyon (3-3) scored Jordan Schafer and Dan Uggla to give him 501 career RBIs and put the Braves on top 5-2. Schafer singled before Uggla walked.

DALLAS’ DIRK NOWITZKI, LEFT, AND MIAMI’S LEBRON JAMES SMILE during practice sessions Saturday in Miami. Game 6 of the NBA finals is 7 tonight in Miami. The Mavericks lead the series 3-2.


Dirk, LeBron switch roles MIAMI (AP) — The hammer Dirk Nowitzki is so close to escaping is pounding away harder than ever at LeBron James. The Dallas Mavericks are a victory from claiming the title that James came to Miami to win. It would forever alter Nowitzki’s reputation, which has already been elevated enormously during this series as he has ignored injury and illness. And James is now the target of all the criticism Nowitzki long endured, the one shouldering most of the blame as things go GAME 6 wrong. “That’s When: 7 tonight just a part of the game if Where: Miami you’re the TV: ABC (cable channels 9, 12, 209) star or the face of the franchise,” Nowitzki said Saturday. “If you win, it’s great for you, and everybody looks at you. And if you lose, you’re going to get hammered. It’s just part of the business. I think we understand that, we’ve been around long enough. I got hammered the last 13 years, basically. So hopefully this year I can make the hammering go away for a year.” He has two shots at it. The Mavs can win their first title tonight, or Tuesday if the Heat force a seventh game. That would require a stronger effort from James, who this time a year ago was coming off his second straight MVP award and was three weeks from becoming among the most sought-after free agents in sports history. Now he’s the guy who can’t produce in the fourth quarters, with 11 total points in five games, the one with the big name but the puny stats who had to spend part of his off day answer all sorts of questions about what’s happened to him. ● Are those 44 minutes per game you’re playing too much? “I wouldn’t say it’s too much. I don’t think so,” James said. “I don’t feel like I’m hurting my team for the time I’m out there. I don’t feel like it’s too much.”

● Is something wrong with your shot technique? “At this point, I don’t think technique has anything to do with it,” James said. “Shots go in, shots don’t go in. I don’t stop to think about my technique or anything like that.” ● Are you simply feeling the pressure of the finals stage? “I think the game of basketball can be pressure,” James said. “It doesn’t matter if it’s the finals or the conference finals or first round. Playoff basketball is all about pressure, how you can handle it.” James did allow that perhaps he hasn’t been as aggressive in the fourth quarter because Dwyane Wade has been playing so well. Wade is averaging 28.4 points — 11 more than James, who also trails Chris Bosh. “He’s one of the best players in the world,” Wade said. “So we’re not necessarily concerned about him to that extent. I want him to play and feel confident.” James noted that he did have a triple-double last game, but even with 17 points, 10 rebounds and 10 assists, he said, “I had a bad game in a lot of people’s eyes. I understand that.” Nowitzki knows the feeling. He has been the lone big star on a Dallas team that’s won 50 games for 11 straight seasons, yet he’s known best for his failures: the collapse after a 2-0 lead over Miami in the 2006 finals, the first-round loss to eighth-seeded Golden State in the first round the next year after winning 67 games. He was tagged as soft — a label many European players receive — and given derisive nicknames such as No-winski or No-ring-ski. But he showed plenty of toughness Saturday when he fired back at Wade and James after they appeared to be mocking his recent illness on a video that made the rounds Friday. Nowitzki called it “a little childish, a little ignorant,” but denied that it would give him any added motivation to claim the ring he’s been chasing for 13 years. “We’re one win away from

my dream, what I’ve worked on for half my life,” Nowitzki said. “This is really all I’m worried about, this is all I’m focusing on, and not really the offthe-court stuff that happened.” James and Wade downplayed the video, but even if their intentions weren’t malicious, it gave Heat haters yet another reason to dislike the team that already provided so many from the moment they came together last summer. Though they took less money than allowable, the James-Wade-Bosh union left little room to fill out the lower half of the roster. That didn’t matter earlier in the playoffs, when the trio played well enough to win with whatever support it got. Now James is well below his usual, Bosh is shooting just 37 percent, and the Mavericks’ superior depth is helping them pull out close games at the end. The Mavericks’ nine-point victory in Game 5 was the biggest by either team in the series, in which Dallas has outscored Miami 463-459. The previous three had been decided by three points or fewer, and the Heat know they’ve been good enough to realize they can easily win the next two. “This is about as close as you can possibly have a series, and you have to stay the course,” coach Erik Spoelstra said. “We’re doing a lot of things well. It’s a possession game, possession series, it goes down to the end. We’re a very good closing team on both ends of the court. “They’ve been able to do it better than us in three of the games, but we feel very confident coming home and being able to do the things we’ve been successful at, particularly closing.” The Mavs are comfortable on the road, where they won Game 2 of this series after a pair of victories at both Los Angeles and Oklahoma City in the previous two rounds. Nowitzki and Jason Terry still remember the pain of watching the Heat celebrate on their floor five years ago, and now they’ve got the chance for the ultimate payback.

NEW YORK (AP) — Kentucky Derby winner Animal Kingdom nearly fell at the start. Preakness winner Shackleford faded in the stretch. The Belmont Stakes was up for grabs. And it was 24-1 long shot Ruler on Ice who delivered a huge upset Saturday in the final leg of the Triple Crown, splashing his way to a threequarter length victory over Stay Thirsty. As expected, Shackleford led from the start but when the field of 12 turned for home in the 1 1⁄2-mile Belmont, he tired in the muck as long shots Ruler On Ice and Stay Thirsty passed him by. “Ruler wasn’t slowing down,” winning jockey Jose Valdivia Jr. said. “It was a great feeling the last sixteenth of a mile.” The much-hyped rubber match between Shackleford and Animal Kingdom never developed on a rainy day at Belmont Park. Shackleford finished fifth, while Animal Kingdom had a frightful start, never moved into contention and finished sixth. Jockey John Velazquez nearly fell off Animal Kingdom when the horse was bumped on his right side by Mucho Macho Man just after the start. He somehow managed to get his left foot back into the stirrup, but by then it was too late. Animal Kingdom had dropped more than 13 lengths off the lead, and did well to finish in the middle of the pack. “The horse almost fell down,” said Graham Motion, Animal Kingdom’s trainer. “Johnny couldn’t believe the horse stayed up. He lost his iron. It took him until halfway around the turn to get his foot back in the iron. It’s disap-

LAUREL OLSON USES a plastic bag to stay dry before the Belmont Stakes on Saturday in Elmont, N.Y. pointing not to give the horse a chance to run his race.” An elated Valdivia, riding in his first Belmont, described the final seconds of the race while on the gallop back to the winner’s circle. “I’m a couple of yards from the wire and I’m thinking, ‘Oh my god, oh my god, I’m going to win the Belmont,”’ he said. A crowd of 55,779 turned out hoping to see a stretch showdown between Animal Kingdom and Shackleford — the first Derby vs. Preakness winners in the Belmont in six years. But that vanished once the Derby winner was knocked around in a bad bit of racing luck. “It was unbelievable,” Velazquez said. “They came over on me and clipped heels and I almost came off. I had a horrible trip. No way was he going to make up that much ground. He’s still a great horse.” The Belmont has a history of surprise finishes, from spoiled Triple Crown attempts to stunning shockers. Only two favorites have won since Thunder Gulch in

1995, and long shots have been the norm. Last year, it was 131 Drosselmeyer, two years ago Summer Bird at 11-1, and three years ago Da’ Tara at 38-1. Birdstone spoiled Smarty Jones’ bid for a Triple Crown in 2004 at odds of 36-1 and Sarava ended War Emblem’s Triple try in 2002 at 70-1 odds. The win left Lori Hall, who owns Ruler On Ice with her husband George, shaking. “It was amazing, because we really were the underdog,” she said. Ruler On Ice’s victory makes it three years in a row a different horse has won each of the Triple Crown races, and next year it will be a 33-year gap since Affirmed swept the Derby, Preakness and Belmont in 1978. Ruler On Ice, trained by New Jersey-based Kelly Breen, did not run in the first two legs of the Triple Crown. The 3-year-old didn’t have enough graded stakes earnings to qualify for the Derby, but vindicated his trainer’s faith by defeating a field that included the first seven finishers in the Run for the Roses.

RACHEL SMALTER HALL, adult programs librarian for the Lawrence Public Library, 707Vt., suggested Leo Tolstoy’s “War and Peace” as family reading project that started its own epic battle among loved ones. She was the only family member to finish the book after two years.

1,296 pages, it’s the equivalent of a couple of “Twilight” books sewn together, though not nearly as sparkly. In fact, it could make quite the dull doorstop — a big, Russian doorstop. That was Rachel Smalter Hall’s copy of Leo Tolstoy’s “War and Peace.” And for two years of her life, she felt every page’s weight on her slim shoulders. It started off innocently enough, of course. Hall, the adult programs librarian at the Lawrence Public Library, 707 Vt., was a college student when a new translation of the Russian classic hit stores, prepared for print by Richard Pevear and Larissa Volokhonsky, the translators behind the

a genetic book club. So, she went out and bought seven copies of the mammoth book at $30 a pop. Next, she planned a reading schedule that started on a sibling’s birthday and ended with a family sit-down at the completion of the book a year later. “People were reading hundreds of pages ahead, people lagged behind a couple of hundred, there were fights starting in the family about where we were supposed to be and people apologizing,” she says. “I mean, my family is pretty low-key, but the whole thing, it was a huge disaster.” For the record, Hall did finPlease see READS, page 8B

Victoria Secondine knows plenty of fellow Lawrence High School students who are slogging away at menial jobs this summer. As an apprentice artist at Van Go Mobile Arts, 715 N.J., she’s proud to say she’s not one of them. “It’s not a playground, but it is a fun job. I like my job,” the 17-yearold says. “Other people are always like, ‘You’re so lucky you get to work there.’” It’s more than just the spending money she likes, though.

AT LEFT I’ve taken a fairly standard, but somewhat boring photograph of KU’s Campanile. By moving only a small distance, behind a tree, I used foreground branches and leaves to re-frame KU’s Campanile in the photograph at right. Incorporating nearby objects or elements into the interior space of your camera frame can add creative composition and depth to photographed subjects.

Framing makes the photo By Mike Yoder

Summer’s here, which means it’s a good time to brush up on a few photography skills to help make the most your vacation scenes. Regardless of the camera you use, there are always ways to improve your photography. One of the simplest is the creative technique of using foreground elements to fill empty space, frame or direct attention toward a subject. When you look through your camera’s optical viewfinder, or consider an image on your camera’s monitor, you are taking the first step toward fram-

ing a scene. Your view will be defined by where you point your lens and the properties and perspective of the lens chosen. This works well for a majority of photographs but can lead to flat, boring images for some subjects. To add depth to your shots consider using nearby objects or devices to further frame a subject. I call this internal framing. To make this work, you first need to locate suitable devices or objects nearby to incorporate into your frame. You will be surprised at what you can use to lend creative composiPlease see BEHIND, page 8B

ish the book — by herself, though her husband did try as best he could to finish it with her. They decided it would be romantic to read the book aloud to each other. Turns out it’s not romantic as much as it is rage-inducing. “Every night it would be, ‘Oh, honey, do you want to read some “War and Peace” tonight?’ And ‘Oh no, not tonight.’ And finally when we got to page 800, my husband admitted to me that he thought he’d commit an act of extreme violence if he ever had to hear Tolstoy aloud ever again,” she says, laughing. “And so, I ended up finishing it by myself, but it took almost two years. And so, my ambition of everyone getting together and reading it nice and neatly ... it did not work that way. But it was a great book and even though it took two years, I’m really glad that I read it.” Yes, even librarians can have trouble conquering reading projects. But, like in Hall’s case, they also succeed at reading more than the average bookworm. So, we asked the kind folks at the Lawrence Public Library just how to make your summer reading project a success, whether you’re reading a doorstop classic or buzz-worthy new release.

How to tackle your summer reading project ● Have fun with it. First of all, pick a book or book project that won’t be a drag. Dan Winsky, who works in the library’s acquisitions department, loves nautical fiction. If it’s on a boat during the period between the Revolutionary War and the Napoleonic Wars, he wants to read it. That’s why his current reading project is all boats, all the time. He’s reading maritime fiction by Dewey Lambdin (the Alan Lewrie novels), Patrick O’Brian (the Aubrey/ Maturin series), Bernard Cornwell (the Richard Sharpe books) and C.S. Forester (Horatio Hornblower). It’s a lot to tackle, but it’s got such a variety of writers, boredom is not a problem. “The Alan Lewries Naval Adventure Series is 18 books. The Hornblower series is 11 books. The Aubrey/Maturin series is 21 books, and the Richard Sharpe series is 22 books,” he says, adding it to 72 books in his project. “That’s a boatload of reading! Boatload, get it? ... Luckily, they’re all wonderful stories so far!” ● Document it, but don’t stress out. Reference librarian William Ottens is preparing to read one work by every author who has won the Nobel Prize for fiction. With the first award given in 1901, that’s more than 100 books and collections of poetry, but he’s got a plan. Read a little at a time, and then discuss — in his case he’ll be doing it on his blog, http://whatwouldalfred — and don’t beat yourself up about not reading huge chunks at once. “Don’t feel like you have to tackle the whole project, or a whole book, at once,” he says. “If you have 15 minutes during lunch or a break, read a few pages. Take a half-hour before going to bed and read some.” ● Get extra motivation. For those interested in registering, you can give your

bipolar disorder, and she says the artistic process she undertakes at Van Go helps her cope. “It’s an outlet,” she says. “I make different art when I’m in different moods. I painted these chairs when I was in a pretty good mood.” She is sitting on a brightly colored chair, one of four that encircles a black table that holds an equally brightly colored deck umbrella. It’s one of many items that will be on sale or up for auction Saturday at the eighth-annual What Floats Your Boat fundraiser, held at the Clinton Lake Marina. The event — which features barbecue, the auction and music from the Kansas City funk band Groove Agency — has grown into one of Lawrence’s signature fundraisers, with more than 600 people expected to attend. The event typically raises about $70,000 for Van Go, roughly 10 percent of its budget, says Eliza Nichols, the organization’s marketing director. Van Go includes two programs. JAMS — or Jobs in the Arts Make Sense — pays atrisk youths from ages 14 to 18 to create public works of art, including colorful benches and murals. Arts Train helps young adults ages 18 to 21 transition to adulthood through commissioned artwork. Both programs include social services and job training. In some ways, the timing of What Floats Your Boat couldn’t be better. With the elimination of the Kansas Arts Commission and other state budget cuts, Van Go is

reading schedule a bit of a kick in the pants with the Adult Summer Reading program through the library. It works like so: sign up, read any five books from May 24 to Aug. 21, attend summer reading events and be eligible to win one of five prizes, including Sony eReaders, $100 gift certificates to 715 or Pachamamas and gift baskets from Au Marche and J&S Coffee. For more information, or to register, go to ● Accept recommendations. Not sure what to read or where to start? Check with the library or the clerk at your favorite bookstore to get recommendations. “I think that’s one of the obstacles sometimes, too, is that you want to do some reading, but you’re not really sure what’s good or what’s hot or what you’re going to like,” says Hall, who recommends the library’s NoveList search available in the research database section of “And we always love taking a few minutes to chat with people and finding out what you read that you liked and then (being) able to recommend things from there.” ● But don’t waste your time. Susan Brown, marketing director, likes to point to the Nancy Pearl “Rule of 50.” Pearl is a famous librarian in Seattle and the inspiration for the librarian action figure — http://www.mcphee. com/laf/ — and a big proponent of making things easy on yourself. “Her ‘Rule of 50’ is, if you’re under 50 years old, and you don’t like a book after 50 pages, just stop reading it. And then if you’re more than 50 years old, you subtract your age from 100 and only give the book that many pages,” Brown says. “So, if you’re 70, you only give the book 30 pages. And if the book doesn’t grab you, whether it’s ‘War and Peace’ or Danielle Steel, that’s it.” ● Consider an electronic version. The best thing about owning an eReader? The chance to easily sample possible reads, says Hall, who will get a free one- or two-chapter sample on her Kindle and know if she wants to buy the whole thing (or check it out from the library). And, ironically, she thinks the electronic format can help if you choose to make a project out of a doorstop book. “I ended up purchasing an extra copy of ‘War and Peace’ for a Kindle that I had been given,” she says, laughing at her eighth acquisition of the book. “Oh my gosh, having it on a Kindle made it so much easier to read. That is another fabulous summer reading tip for someone who wants to read a big book.”

tion to your photographs. Some common things I often use are trees, buildings and even people. Let’s imagine you’re standing on a beach, beneath a palm tree, photographing the cruise ship you are about to board. (OK, so it’s a BIG imagination.) Framing only on the boat will result in a one-dimensional image with water, boat and a lot of empty sky. It’ll look flat and boring. Instead, back up and incorporate the tall trunk and draping foliage of the palm tree as a foreground framing element. This will provide a feeling of depth, fill up some empty space and help guide a viewers eye toward the intended subject. Here are some tips. ● When re-framing a subject to include framing objects, your focus and exposure metering should remain on the subject. ● It will be your creative choice on where to locate framing objects in your scene. It works best to have objects that surround, lead to or angle toward the subject. Interior framing objects should not block or disrupt the view of the main subject of the photo. ● Both wide-angle lenses and telephoto lenses can be used, although it is easier to work with wide-angles because they provide greater perspective to incorporate nearby framing devices. Go online to this column to see examples of some KU landmarks with and without framing devices.

BRIGHTLY COLORED LOUNGE CHAIRS are among the items that will be for sale and auction at the What Floats Your Boat fundraiser forVan Go Mobile Arts on Saturday. expecting to receive about $25,000 less in government support during the next fiscal year, Nichols says. That’s around a 3.5 percent cut to the organization’s overall budget. And although artists such as Secondine have been busy creating artwork for What Floats Your Boat — including birdbaths, bird feeders, patio chairs, mosaic stepping stones and much more — they’ve also been keeping an eye on what’s been going on in Topeka as Gov. Sam Brownback worked to eliminate the Arts Commission. “People don’t feel art is important,” she says, “but it’s very important. Everything is related to art in some way, shape or form. We all want a roof over our heads, but someone has to design that roof.” Nichols says What Floats Your Boat is not only a fundraiser but also is an

opportunity to teach a large audience about Van Go and a way to reinforce its purpose to the apprentice artists. “It makes them feel really good when their pieces sell,” she says. “It makes them really confident. They really have a lot invested in their pieces.” It’s a feeling Heather French, 22, knows well. She had a piece sell for $1,000 as part of the Arts Train program last year. French is one of Van Go’s success stories. When she started in the JAMS program at age 14, she had truancy issues at school and spent some time at the Juvenile Detention Center. “After coming here, I saw people who really care,” she says. “It was a regular job, and I got paid, but people really care about you. I would go to school just to be able to come here afterward.” Now, French is a paid parttime Van Go employee, help-

ing with JAMS. A condition of her employment is that she must be enrolled in school, and she just completed her first year at Johnson County Community College with hopes of becoming a nurse. “Once I get on my feet with my career, I want to volunteer here,” she says. “I want to give back everything that they gave to me.” Secondine, meanwhile, wants to pursue a career designing advertisements. She enters her senior year at Lawrence High School in the fall. Sitting on one of those brightly colored chairs — “made from scratch,” she notes, in Van Go’s wood shop — Secondine has high hopes for how her latest piece will do at the What Floats Your Boat auction. “And then, it’ll be sitting at someone’s home,” she says. “Looking awesome.”

And it opened up publishing opportunities for Latino writers because presses on the East Coast saw that there was a demand for stories about Latina/o culture.” Indeed, Hijuelos is thought of as a Cuban-American writer — “but the irony of my work, and my life,” he says, “is that I was cut off from my Cubanness pretty early, and Geoff Bohling, in some ways, I’ve had to scientist, write my way back to it.” Lawrence That makes a fine summa“’Outliers: The Story of ry of “Thoughts,” which falls Success’ by Malcolm Gladwell. into two parts.

ill of a kidney disease, possibly picked up in Cuba. He’s forced to spend most of a year in the hospital. That year, surrounded by no Spanish speakers, effectively cuts him off from Cuban culture. “I was cut off in so many ways from my legacy,” he says. “First, by my appearance, because I didn’t ’look Cuban.’ Then by my disease. And later, the communist revolution cut me off from my relatives.” Once well, the young Oscar resists his mother’s attempts to reintroduce him to Spanish. That leads directly to the second part of “Thoughts,” in which Hijuelos discovers writing, and via writing, himself. “I was trying to replace what I always should have had,” he says. “It’s a uniquely American story: trying to figure out what you are.” Hijuelos, 60, had an exciting time — the early 1970s — in which to learn how to write, and a stellar series of mentors. Among his teachers at City College of the City University of New York were Donald

Barthelme and Susan Sontag, two of the era’s most prominent writers and critics. “I was the roughest, most terrible writer in the world,” Hijuelos says. “But Barthelme was always very kind to me, and as time passed, the quality of my writing changed, and he began to take my work much more seriously.” Sontag, too, “although a totally brilliant person, related to me very nonintellectually, as a regular person. I had a deep element of Catholic spiritualism she really loved and encouraged me to explore.” Hijuelos began to write of his Cuban roots, amassing material that would later surface in his first novel, 1983’s “Our House in the Last World.” In “Thoughts,” Hijuelos reports that “in that process of digging up the dead (resurrecting them, as it were), I began to experience very bad nights of restless sleep and disorienting dreams,” so bad that he sought therapy. But “House” was well

received. “When it came out, for the first time in a long time, I felt a sense of wholeness, about myself, I mean,” Hijuelos says. Then came the thunderclap of success that greeted “Mambo Kings”: a P ulitzer, a movie, a moment with his father’s ghost. “Hijuelos is one of the most famous U.S. Latino writers,” Padilla says. “He’s up there with Sandra Cisneros, Julia Alvarez and Junot Diaz. Despite this, I think his work is underrated. He’s not given enough credit for the complex characters he creates or the way he uses the subtleties of everyday life to give us powerful insights into those characters.” She praises his “vibrant representation of Cuban American mambo culture in New York in the 1940s and ’50s” in “Mambo Kings.” “But I think that aspect gets focused on in part because it’s the most ‘exotic’ element of the book,” she says. “It’s the sort of element that the larger culture often wants to see in a ‘Latino’ novel.” She wishes he’d get more attention for his focus “on the workplace and on labor, in order to craft intricate character studies that are very powerful.” Hijuelos grumbles about a U.S. literary establishment “that still typecasts Latino writers, still leaves us out of the discussion. I mean, I love Jonathan Franzen and Michael Chabon, too — but our books are as American as theirs.” He still has a hesitant affair with the Spanish language, “but if the vibe is right, I can settle into it.” And he confesses a lingering sadness about what he lost and had to struggle to recover. “Every year you’re away from the fount of what you are, I feel sad about it. I kick myself: ‘Why didn’t I move to Havana for three years? Why am I a CubanAmerican writer who’s lived in Italy longer than he’s been in Cuba?”’ Yet that’s the thing he likes about “Thoughts Without Cigarettes”: “It tells the story of my doubleness. As for Cuban culture, it turns me on, and I feel protective of it, because it is so often treated superficially. I hope I have contributed to it in some way.”

‘Upright Piano Player’ is graceful, consuming By Michelle Wiener For The Associated Press

Makenna Anderson, fifth-grader, Lawrence “The Main Street series by Ann Martin. It’s about these two girls whose parents died when they were young and they live in their grandma’s house. It’s how they meet their friends and what they do.”

“The Upright Piano Player” (Nan A. Talese), by David Abbott: David Abbott’s quietly devastating debut novel, “The Upright Piano Player,” centers on Henry Cage, a successful, respected business executive floundering a bit in the wake of his retirement. We first meet Henry on his way to a funeral, in the aftermath of a shocking and grue-

some accident. Abbott then backtracks five years, on the cusp of the new millennium, as Henry is beginning to adjust to retired life. A random violent encounter on New Year’s Eve leads to escalating acts of harassment, which mostly embarrass rather than frighten Henry as he’s got other things to worry about: his exwife’s illness is getting more serious, and he’s cautiously starting to rebuild a relation-

ship with his son. The narrative jumps around among Henry and a number of other disparate characters — his ex, his son and daughter-in-law, his former business colleagues and the man who persists in stalking him — and the effect underscores the current of loss and sorrow running throughout the novel: Everyone is in their own protected, isolated sphere, both yearning for and fearful of reaching out.

It makes the moments of actual meaningful connection all the more moving — if not utterly heart-wrenching — and the moments when characters reject such connections both tragic and, in one instance, brutally disturbing. Aside from the handful of violent acts, this is not a story with a lot of fireworks. It moves slowly and deliberately in delicate elegiac prose, gracefully constructed and wholly consuming.

Lupton’s ‘Sister’ a compelling thriller set in London By Michelle Wiener For The Associated Press

B e a t r i ce He m m i n g ’s f l i g h ty younger sister, Tess, first goes missing and is then found dead in an abandoned lavatory in London’s Hyde Park. The police rule her death a suicide, but Beatrice is convinced that Tess has been murdered. She moves into Tess’ flat and starts tracing her sister’s last steps to find her killer, uncovering secret

after secret about the woman she thought she was closer to than anyone. Rosamund Lupton’s debut — part literary fiction, part crime novel — received rave reviews upon its release in the U.K. last fall, and “Sister” will no doubt receive a similar reception in the U.S. It’s intensely written both in terms of its suspense and its study, however one-sided, of the bonds of sisterhood. The novel is written as a letter from Beatrice to her sister, and while

this structure could be written off as a mere device, it works exceptionally well. We come to know Beatrice as rigidly methodical and organized whose love for her sister is transcendent. It makes sense that she would attempt to collect her thoughts and process everything that happened by addressing it all to her dead sister. Nested within Beatrice’s letter to Tess is her lengthy deposition to a prosecuting attorney detailing her amateur investigation of Tess’ death

and the numerous suspects she encounters — the art teacher with whom Tess was having an affair, the fellow student with a perverse obsession with her — and the way her own fixation on Tess concerns her family, who thinks she’s in severe denial. The air of legal testimony that Beatrice’s story takes on allows the climactic plot twist to sneak in under the radar. It is a truly shocking moment, and one that is sure to prompt much heated discussion among readers.

Poet’s Showcase ‘The Mockingbird’ He had a dream. He dreamed of freedom from British tyranny, from taxation without representation, of a land where dreams could flourish. The dream became a reality, and the Mockingbird sang. She had a dream. She dreamed that women would become men’s equal, that they would own land, gain suffrage, control their lives. The dream became a reality, and the Mockingbird sang. He had a dream. He dreamed that our nation would open its doors to all races, honor all religions, nurture all differences. And the Mockingbird laughed. — Betty Laird, Lawrence

ARTS NOTES Spencer announces ‘Pomp Up the Jam’

checkout from the Theatre office with a $10 deposit.

A fantastical print of Emperor Maxmilian I’s triumphal chariot, a larger-than-life photograph of Chairman Mao’s limousine tire, a mesmerizing yam mask from Papua New Guinea and a glittering embroidered parasol from the Philippines. All these and more combine to form “Pomp up the Jam: Splendor, Pageantry, and Performance in Art,” a sparkling and diverse study in parades, processions and ceremonies throughout history that will be on view through Sept. 4 on the Conversation Wall of the Spencer’s 20/21 Gallery. Drawn entirely from the Museum’s permanent collection, Pomp up the Jam was organized by the Spencer Museum of Art’s 2010-2011 student interns, who began work on the installation last fall. The collective effort included interns in all the curatorial areas, collections, education and graphic design: Denise Giannino, Jordan Jacobson, Chassica Kirchhoff, Meredith Moore, Ellen Raimond, Sarah C. Schroeder, Natalie Svacina and Amanda Wright. Several of the objects are being displayed to the public for the first time. Admission is free and open to the public.

Printmaker unveils new works at LAC By Sarah Henning

Nicolette Ross, printmaking artist-in-residence at the Lawrence Arts Center, opened a showing of her work, titled “If You Say So,” at the center Friday. On Thursday, Ross will be giving an artist talk at 7 p.m. and possibly a demonstration regarding the art of printmaking. We caught up with Ross, who will be teaching at the center through July, and asked her about the work she’s showcasing and what role Lawrence played in her work. Sarah Henning: Can you

tell me about your work you’ve done during your year as a resident? Nicolette Ross: I’ve been here since August as the printmaking resident. And I’ve been working on not necessarily prints, but MDS carving. Each carving is drawn on the block and then carved out with hand-gouges and then inked in black ink and then dried. Those panels are hung as objects. SH: What’s different about the set of works you’ve been able to do since you’ve been here? NR: It’s a continuation from another body of work that deals with communication between the body and

environment. And it’s also compl i a n t w i t h my ow n afflictions with anxiety and other things. I did a series of work called “Yak, Yak, Yak,” and it’s similar in form, where I had basically singular images on each panel and I did show the panels as objects. So, this show is a little different in that all of the panels are different sizes, some are inked b l a c k w i t h wh i t e - l i n e d drawings on them, but it is a continuation of this investigation into the ideas, basically. SH: How’s that (investigation) grown since you’ve been in Lawrence? Did any of the images change or surprise

Program helps Native Americans learn to save own languages McClatchy Newspapers

ARLINGTON , T EXAS — Hutke Fields pictures a time when younger generations of Natchez people use his tribe’s native tongue at ceremonies, while sharing oral histories and during everyday talk at home. But Field’s vision is complicated by the fact that only six people, out of about 10,000 members of the Natchez tribe in Oklahoma, still speak the language. “We’ll lose it if we don’t use it,” said Fields, who received assistance last year during a workshop dedicated to helping American Indian communities in Oklahoma to bring back disappearing languages. Fields is a participant in the Breath of Life project — a joint effort by experts from the University of Texas at Arlington and the University of Oklahoma — in which linguists mentor American Indians so they can better recover endangered languages. It is modeled after a project at the University of California, Berkeley. “We are growing field linguists,” said Colleen Fitzgerald, associate professor and chairwoman of UT Arlington’s Linguistics Department. “We are transferring knowledge to community members so they can teach their own languages.” The first workshop was held in summer 2010 at OU in Norman, Okla., which is also the site of the Sam Noble

Oklahoma Museum of Natural History. Members of three American Indian communities took part: the Osage, Otoe and Natchez. Linguists and American Indians will be able to work together again next May. The project recently got a funding boost that will allow for a second workshop, Fitzgerald said. The project team received a total of $90,000 in grant money from the National Science Foundation, an independent federal agency that helps support research at colleges and universities. The grant is spread over two years. Besides training American Indian community members to be linguists on the ground, UT Arlington will be working to create linguistic databases that will ultimately enable the creation of online dictionaries and collections of texts in various languages, Fitzgerald said. Each community will have a database which will also be stored in a repository at the Noble museum. Oklahoma was described as a “hot spot” of linguistic diversity by experts in National Geographic’s Enduring Voices Project, said Mary Linn, associate curator of American Indian languages at the Noble museum and an associate professor of anthropology at OU. As North America was settled by whites, many tribes were forced to move to Okla-

homa. As a result, there is not only a great deal of linguistic diversity, but also high levels of language endangerment, Linn said. The languages grew even more endangered as American Indians assimilated to English-speaking culture that dominates society. “It’s hard to resist shifting to English,” Linn said, adding that many small tribes picked up the languages of larger tribes. Today, language sleuths rely on tribal records, grammar and alphabets that were often chronicled by missionaries, military generals and tribes. President Thomas Jefferson also collected word lists, Linn said. Fields said the project allowed his community to computerize a dictionary and research. Now, Natchez people in South Carolina can practice with their Natchez friends in Oklahoma. This also allows Natchez histories to flow more readily from elders who still tell of their contributions to America as farmers expert in corn and beans.

you in any way? NR: You know, not really (laughs). I’m still using my old process of just basically having a visual vocabulary of images that can be put together to form a singular dialogue or continuous dialogue. And being in Lawrence, I obviously have had some influence on my work, just living here, my environment has changed, so, obviously, everything has changed about my thoughts. But looking at the work, you wouldn’t see much of a difference. But environment is definitely a factor. — Staff writer Sarah Henning can be reached at

SPECIAL FX In the minds of many, there is nothing new about Formica, the composite material that was invented in 1912 as a replacement for micarta (for mica) used in electrical insulators. The multilayered resin-impregnated kraft paper with the decorative top coating of melamine soon became a favorite countertop material. Then, as now, Formica was valued for its ease of installation, simple upkeep, and low relative cost. What is new about Formica is its “180fx” laminate collection, which closely approximates the look of far-more-expensive granite. A four-color printing process produces multi-colored layers with the large-scale look of stone and patterns that only repeat every five feet. Homeowners with an eye on value are urged to take a closer look. Formica is just one way that a savvy kitchen designer can save you big bucks while still capturing the rich and elegant look that you want. Let your professional designers design a new kitchen… without the stunning bill. Once we’ve designed your perfect kitchen, we will install it on time, within budget, and at a reasonable price.

lmost every time a new building goes up or a new parking lot is built, the earth loses a little space where rainfall could be soaking back into the soil. With nowhere else to go, water runs off the impervious surfaces and travels through storm sewers and ditches on its journey to the river. Also, as the water flows, it picks up trash and pollutants and carries them into rivers and streams. For many years, the standard for stormwater has been to get it off the streets as quickly as possible to prevent flooding. I still remember the first time I saw cars floating down 23rd Street after a quick, heavy rain. Sometimes storm sewers and ditches simply cannot handle the amount of water that needs to be moved. With more buildings and paved surfaces than ever before, engineers and environmentalists are exploring other options. Green roofs, rain gardens, bioswales and retention ponds are a few of the ways water can be dealt with onsite instead of letting it become someone else’s problem. Sometimes a flat, smooth surface is needed, though, so a bioswale is not exactly appropriate. That’s why researchers have also been working to develop pervious concrete, asphalt and paver systems. Some of the early systems worked OK for infiltration but clogged over time or were less aesthetically pleasing than most people preferred. The good news is that the systems are getting better and looking better. I hope they will grow in popularity. That’s why I was happy to see that Douglas County Bank chose a permeable paver system over an impervious surface for their new patio at the Bob Billings Parkway and Kasold Drive location. The permeable system came highly recommended by Clay Phillips, the architect from BG Consultants who was working on the project. “I think they’re a good product,” Phillips says. “The water has a chance to go back into the groundwater system.” Phillips, who has used permeable paver systems in previous projects, notes that permeable systems have come a long way since their introduction. “Some of the systems are not as pervious as these. If you’ve seen the ones with bigger gaps, with grass growing in them — they don’t work as well as these.” Pat Slabaugh, executive vice president at Douglas County Bank, is enthusiastic about having something that doesn’t hold water but also does not add to the amount of impervious surface. “I really think it was the right thing to do, and I like the look of them,” Slabaugh says. The main difference between the newer permeable paver systems and the older systems is the look. As Phillips mentioned, many had large gaps that were meant to be filled with grass or other plants. It was a poor environment for plants to grow and the systems generally did not work the way they were intended. Brad Minnick, sales representative with Capitol Concrete who has worked with the paver systems, also says the system is much improved. He also tells me there is a bit of a misconception about the permeability of regular pavers and flagstone. “With normal pavers, the gaps are narrower and filled with a


Stars and stripes latest of many flag styles By Terry Kovel

Flag Day was first celebrated on June 14, 1889, in a public school in Fredonia, Wis. The teacher thought the pupils should celebrate the 112th anniversary of the official adoption of the Stars and Stripes. The idea of a birthday for the flag caught the attention of the public, and the idea spread. By 1891 there was a celebration at the Betsy Ross house in Philadelphia, and soon laws were being passed in many states that asked that the flag be flown on all public buildings. Finally, after nearly 60 years, Flag Day became official when President Harry Truman signed the Act of Congress that made June 14 National Flag Day. The stars and stripes flag used today is the latest of many designs. There have been 28 different U.S. flags. Each has used red and white stripes and stars, one for each state. Three versions of the flag had the stars in a circle, and three had the stars forming a large six-pointed star. Decorations on textiles and porcelain almost always picture the flag of the year they were made. So try to count the stars, then look up when there were that many states. It should give you an idea of the age of your collectible. A 19th-century copper weathervane, 29 by 18 inches, had a figure of Liberty holding a large flag with 13 painted stars in a circle. That was the design used in 1777-78 and again in 1865-1867. The weathervane was made in about 1867, probably in Waltham, Mass. But many smaller items, including toys, had small flags and only a small space for a design, so often there were only a few stars, even less than 13, so it’s not a legal flag and is no help in determining a manufacturing date.

Stones are still close together though, typically with a 1/8inch-wide void. Gaps are then filled with small angular gravel: 1/4 to 3/16 of an inch in diameter washed gravel, to be exact.

filter and clean storm water, Minnick says. “Colorado State has done studies that show the heavy metals that leach off parking lots — and how much the permeable systems filter the water.” Some cities, including Portland, Ore., have gone as far as replacing streets with permeable paver systems. If you are thinking about a new patio or driveway, Minnick says the system is easy enough for the average do-it-yourselfer to install. And, you can feel good about the environment while doing it! —Jennifer Smith is the Horticulture Extension Agent for K-State Research and Extension in Douglas County.

Tip: Microcrystalline waxes, like Quake Wax or Quake Hold or the wax used by dentists to keep braces from hurting, are good for sticking ceramics and glass on shelves, but don’t use them on soft unglazed ceramics like Indian pots. They leave an oil stain.

PANDAS sufferer stands up to bullies Annie’s Mailbox

enjoying her spacious apartment and the help from the staff for everything from moving boxes to installing her TV. The food is great, and she is glad to be free of her highmaintenance house. There is one problem. The other residents are always complaining — the weather is bad, the food is too salty, their arthritis is kicking up, their mail didn’t arrive on time. How can she graciously rect these people toward a chance to learn about PAN- more upbeat conversation? — DAS, a pediatric autoimmune Alice’s Friend disorder affecting children between the ages of 3 and puberty. It is connected to OCD and /or tic disorders such as Tourette’s, and it appears to affect the region in the brain responsible for movement and behavior. If you notice your child has an abrupt onset of OCD and/or tics immediately following a strep throat or other strep infection, talk to your pediatrician about PANDAS. For more information, contact the International PANDAS Foundation (www.internationalpandasfoundation.or g/obsessivecompulsivedisorder) or the International OCD Foundation Dear Virginia: You sound ( like a strong young woman and are fortunate to have such Dear Annie: A dear friend supportive friends. Thank has just moved to a residential you for giving our readers a community for seniors. She is Dear Annie: I am a smart, funny, typical 8th-grade girl with lots of friends and good grades. I do, however, suffer from PANDAS (Pediatric Autoimmune Neuropsychiatric Disorders Associated with Streptococcus), which causes tics. In my case, this ranges from repetitive blinking and certain movements to making little noises with my throat. It’s hard to control and usually worsens when I am under stress. However, I can still lead a perfectly normal life. Last year, two girls took it upon themselves to tease me and repeatedly ask why I do these things. I quickly stood up to these bullies, and my friends helped. As soon as the bullies realized no one cared and I wasn’t going to let them bother me, the teasing stopped. Please educate your readers about PANDAS and also Tourette syndrome, as the two are similar. I also urge your readers to stand up to the bullies, whether for themselves or someone else. Teens who suffer from these syndromes would appreciate it. — Virginia

For reasons of my own, I’m a pretty thoroughgoing agnostic when it comes to two of the world’s most powerful alternative religions: the worship of British royalty and the mindless devotion to Oprah Winfrey. Both apostasies collide in jaw-dropping fashion on “Finding Sarah” (8 p.m., OWN). In a story that has launched untold tabloid headlines, Sarah Ferguson has made a royal botch of her public life. A friend of Princess Diana, she joined the royal inner circle, married Prince Andrew and became a rather popular — dare we call her a “People’s Princess” — at the age of 26. For various and sordid reasons, the press and her subjects seemed to turn on her. In rather short order, she was derided as being a bad mother; insulted for her weight (”The Duchess of Pork”); caught canoodling with a man not her husband; divorced and exiled from the enchanted kingdom. And that was before she was exposed (by tabloid reporters) while trying to sell access to her former husband for a tidy sum. Having been brought low, “Finding Sarah” is supposed to help Sarah deal with the “issues” that resulted in her selfdestructive behavior. What follows is a staggering exercise in avoiding personal responsibility and an all-out assault on the English language. It’s difficult, if not impossible, to describe Ferguson’s actions in plain declarative sentences without stumbling upon a hint of culpability. So instead, we deal in a marshmallow world of passive voices and tortured syntax as our “star” regales us with a torrent of stories about the origins of her pulverized self-esteem. Oprah show regulars including Doctor Phil and money sorceress Suze Orman take Sarah under their wings and stoke the fires of her self-pity with the gasoline of therapeutic narcissism. Like most “Oprah” specials, this one could easily inspire a drinking game. Take a snort every time Sarah, or one of her counselors, uses the word “journey” and you’ll be checked into Betty Ford by the end of the first episode. Things reach a rather hilarious apotheosis when Suze Orman tries to talk sad Sarah out of her self-loathing. As a cureall, Dr. Suze offers this whopper of selfregard: “I’ve got a crush on myself!” “Finding Sarah” is one staggering piece of escapist television. You’ll laugh; you’ll cry. You’ll groan and throw things at the screen. It’s one “journey” you just can’t miss!

Dear Friend: Good luck with that. Some people find great satisfaction in complaining. They like the attention and hope it will garner sympathy. Alice could sweetly point out that it is unpleasant to be with people who do nothing but complain, but if that doesn’t work, she should ignore these comments. The important thing is not to allow their negativity to become hers.
